Geothermal heat pumps use electricity to simply move heat from the earth into buildings. A geothermal heat pump can move up to 4 units of heat for every unit of electricity needed to power the system, resulting in an equivalence of over 400% efficiency. Good News! The government revised Federal Tax Credits for homeowners who install geothermal heat pumps. The tax credit is up to 30% of the total cost of installation for home owners. I 105 E.

My Best Friend, Rosiejo By Pat Straumann Rosiejo was three months old when she came to live with Andy and me. Right off the bat, the little cockapoo pup won our hearts. Her intelligence and outgoing personality just lit up her loving puppy face. In no time at all, she became ruler at our country home with the big fenced yard. Though mischievous at times, she could also charm the grump- iest person around into gales of laughter at her antics. After a couple years, we brought another little cockapoo, like Rosie, into our home. Taken with each other at first glance, they became fast friends racing round the yard. Though Rosie was the dominant pup, Cassie ever seemed to mind. After several years, Cassie grew blind. Bless her heart,~ it didn't sway her from keeping up with Rosie. And Rosie soon, either by instinct or intetlect, knew what had happened to Cassie, that she could no longer see, and our little sweetheart took over. When she went outside to play and investigate the yard, she encouraged Cassie to go too. And, she always wafted to be sure Cassie was right at her heels as she walked around the yard, circumventing trees, bushes, or other obstacles like any pro- fessional guide, dog would have done. As Cassie became more reliant on Rosie's care, her confi- dence in Rosie's abilities to save her from bumping into things, became phenomenal. After our little angel, Rosie, passed away, Cassie lived for another three years. Cassie was still confident enough to avoid most obstacles. We always felt Rosie had instilled this confi- dence in her and it became her legacy from our little angel dog. Both little angels are gone now to doggie heaven, but I'm sure they're still together as the best of friends, enjoying each oth- er's company throughout eter- nity. I like to imagine I'll see them again. A Holstein's spots are like a fingerprint or snowflake. No two cows have exactly the same pattern of spots. q It. utas i imcz OSPS No. 365-660 is published semi-monthly (twenty-four times- issues) per year by Michael Lakin, 311 S.
