Take Steps to Offset Soaring Heating Costs
In many homes, a lot of heat escapes through the roof, cracks in walls, and gaps around windows, doors and pipes. Homeowners can ease the shock of high utility costs by reclaiming some of that lost heat. Exposed air ducts in an attic allow heat to dissipate even before it enters the house, making the furnace work harder, so wrap or cover these ducts with insulation, twelve inches of attic insulation is recommended in Missouri. For more information on saving energy in your home, view the Energy Management publications or contact your local MU Extension office.

4-H: Leaders for life
4-H Faculty, Staff and Volunteers create multiple opportunities for youth. 4-H project work and related educational experiences help youth explore interests in citizenship, communications and leadership. 4-H Youth report 3 times more opportunities than their non-4-H peers to engage in meaningful community leadership roles. This interest in leadership and community service translates to a 70% greater likelihood of 4-H members to attend college compared to youth participating in other out-of school programs. 4-H is growing the leaders of tomorrow today.
