  1. 1. HammerTime HABBITATFORHUMANITYOFUTAHCOUNTY August 2014 News HABITAT RESTORES TO HOLD HUGE BLOW OUT SALE! The Habitat ReStores in Orem and Spanish Fork will be holding a Summer Blowout Sale this weekend (Friday and Saturday, August 1 and 2, 2014). All used items will be 50% off. Don’t miss out on all the great bargains on new and used building material, appliances and furniture. Hours and locations at www.habitatuc.org/restore.htm. HABITAT FOR HUMANITY OF UTAH COUNTY SELECTS NEW EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE Habitat for Humanity of Utah County selected a new Executive Committee for this fiscal year at the affili- ate’s Annual Meeting on July 22, 2014. The new members include: • Chairperson - Brad Simons from Magleby Construction • Past Chairperson - Lo Nestman from Zions Bank • Vice Chairperson - Gary Jensen from Central Bank • Secretary - Jeanne Walker from AmericanWest Bank • Treasurer - Kelly Palmer from Bank of American Fork • At Large Member – Tara Riddle from Provo City Special thanks to Nestman, Simons, Walker, and Palmer for their service over this past year. HABITAT HOME GIVES FAMILY A SENSE OF COMMUNITY! Mike and Allison Fullmer are the parents of four boys – Jayden, 14, Kaleb, 11, Isaac, 10, and Lucas, 6. They are your typical American family with an uncommon story of hope that inspires all who know them. Less than two years ago, the Fullmer’s looked to us for help. When we visited them, they were renting a worn-down, split- entry home. We also learned that their youngest son, Lucas, was diagnosed with chronic intestinal failure shortly after birth. As a result, he carried an IV pole wherever he went. The split-entry made it difficult for Lucas to move around the house. We quickly responded to the Fullmer’s needs. With the help of hundreds of donors and volunteers we were able to build the Fullmer’s new home in only ten days! The beautiful rambler is perfect for Lucas and his family. The house has meant a lot to the Fullmer’s because they worked hard to move into their new home. They participated in over 500 hours of volunteering and assisted other families in building their homes. They also agreed to pay the mortgage once they moved in. Their hard work makes the home more valuable to them. “Everyone has the American dream to be a homeowner,” Allison said. “Being a homeowner, versus rent- ing, gives us more confidence and self-esteem.” Part of that confidence and self-esteem has come from developing lasting relationships with their neighbors. Before, they moved from rental to rental with little opportunity to develop close relationships. Now, Mike and Allison, along with their four boys have made life-long friends and feel like they belong to a community. The Fullmer’s are a perfect example of our mission to bring people together to build homes, communities, and hope.
  2. 2. 2 HABITAT FOR HUMANITY, COMMUNITY ACTION TO UNVEIL COMMUNITY GARDEN Habitat for Humanity of Utah County in partnership with Community Action Services and Food Bank and Provo Parks and Recreation will unveil the new TyRay Community Garden on Thursday, August 7, 2014, at 6:30 p.m. All interested community members are invited to attend.

HOUSEHOLD HINT (www.listotic.com) Clean Small Toys in a Laundry Bag I’ve never thought to wash anything in my washing ma- chine other than clothes, but I suppose a laundry bag can make it possible to clean so much more, including small Lego pieces! You could also use this concept in the dish- washer.

  6. 6. 66 Home Maintenance Tips (www.lifehack.org) 30 Smart Tips to Get Your Home Ready for Fall Cooler temperatures and pretty soon falling leaves serve as a reminder that the fall season is fast approaching. As the seasons change, so do our activities and home needs. Even though summer is not quite over yet, it’s a good time to do some seasonal maintenance to keep your home running smoothly. The weather can change quickly, especially if you live in a colder climate and you don’t want to be caught unprepared. A bit of attention now will save costly repairs and aggravation later. Interior Maintenance • Check for drafts. Feel for drafts around the edges of windows and doors. A good tip is to use a lighted candle and if the flame flickers, there’s most likely a draft. If necessary, replace seals and repair caulking around win- dow and door frames. Consider buying heavier or insulated drapery for especially drafty windows. • Have your furnace inspected. Hire an HVAC professional to test for leaks, check heating efficiency, and change the filter. They can also do a carbon monoxide check to ensure air safety. It’s also a good idea to stock up on extra air filters and change them every few months. • Winterize air conditioning. If your home has central air conditioning, (and you live in a climate where you won’t need it any longer,) it may be necessary to cover your outdoor unit for winter. If you use window air con- ditioning units, remove them or cover to prevent air leaks. • Programmable thermostat. Buy a programmable thermostat, if you don’t have one. If you already have one, check the temperature settings. Setting your thermostat to lower the temperature automatically at night and when you’re not home, can result in substantial cost savings. • Test home safety devices. Replace the batteries in all smoke detectors and carbon monoxide devices and test to make sure they’re working properly. • Clean humidifiers. Replace old filters and clean inside compartment. Vinegar is inexpensive and works well. Exterior Maintenance • Do a roof check. You should be able to do at least a visual inspection of the roof from the ground. Grab some binoculars to get a closer look or if you’re able and can do so safely, climb on up for a better view. Look for missing, damaged, or loose shingles. If your roof is flat, you may need to remove leaves and debris. • Check the chimney and fireplace. If you have a wood fireplace and use it often, have your chimney cleaned and inspected by a professional. • Stock up on firewood. Order enough firewood for the season. If you gather your own firewood, make sure it’s dry and ready. It’s best to cover firewood and store away from the house for safety reasons. • Inspect siding. Check home exterior for cracks or holes. Repair them yourself or hire a professional. • Clean the gutters. Hire a service to clear your gutters or do it yourself. Remove leaves, nests, and debris from gutters and check for leaks. • Check water drainage. Rainwater downspouts need to be clear of obstructions and direct water away from foundations, walkways, and driveways. Add extensions to downspouts if necessary. • Reinforce windows and doors. Remove screens and install storm windows and doors if you use them. Check caulk and seals around all doors and windows. • Turn off faucets and store hoses. Drain garden hoses and disconnect from the outside spigots. Shut off exte- rior faucets, and if you have an older home, you may need to turn off the valve inside your home. Store hoses in a dry place so any residual water won’t freeze. • Service sprinklers and irrigation system. Depending on your climate, your irrigation system may need to be drained and checked. Have a professional perform any necessary repairs and mark sprinkler heads near snow removal areas. • Inspect trees. Check for damaged limbs that may break or that are too close to power lines or the roof. • Trim landscaping. Cut back bushes, shrubs, and flowers as recommended for your climate zone. • Bring in flowerpots. If you keep plants or flower in pots year-round, bring them inside. If you replace plants every year, empty, clean, dry pots and put away for next spring. • Plant bulbs. If you plant bulbs for spring, now’s the time to get them in the ground.
  7. 7. 77 Home Maintenance Tips (www.lifehack.org) • Leaf removal. Rake and remove leaves from the yard. Put into a compost pile if you have one. Alternatively, put into yard garbage bags and leave at the curb for community pick up. Check with your local city or town for requirements and pick up schedules. • Fertilize lawn. Applying fall lawn fertilizer will help prevent winter damage and spring weeds. Ask a local gar- den center or check online to find out which type of fertilizer you need and when to apply it. If you have a lawn service, they should do this for you. • Put away seasonal furniture. Clean and store seasonal outdoor furniture. Remove and clean cushions. Wash and dry furniture and store in a dry place over winter. • Close the pool. If you have a pool and live in an area where temperatures dip, schedule a service to come and close it for the season or if you know how, buy the supplies and do it yourself. • Organize the shed. As your shed is filling up with summer items in storage it’s a good time to organize and clean out the shed. Move summer items to the back and winter stuff up front for better access. Also, remove any liquids that will freeze. In the Garage • Service summer power equipment. Empty fuel and clean lawnmower and trimmer. Have lawnmower blades sharpened and oil changed. Have any necessary repairs done now, so that you’re ready come spring. • Store summer vehicles. If you have a motorcycle, summer car, ATV or other type seasonal vehicle, now’s a good time to have that serviced as well. • Get winter equipment ready. Service snow blower and make sure it is ready to go, especially if you live in an unpredictable climate. • Test the generator. If you have an emergency generator for power outages, give it a test, and make sure it’s in good working order. • Buy extra gasoline. Purchase extra gas to have on hand for use in your snow blower or generator, so you’re prepared for emergencies. Make sure you store gasoline in tanks away from fire sources and out of children’s reaches. • Clean the garage. Since you’re in the garage prepping for fall, you might as well purge, organize and clean it while you’re there! As you’re enjoying the last bits of summer, make sure that your home is prepared for the coming fall season. Pre- ventative maintenance now will save money on expensive emergency repairs and wasted energy costs. Properly maintaining your home also enhances its value and appeal and is less effort than managing a crisis later. When the chilly weather approaches you and your home will be ready. SAVING TIP (www.americasaves.org) Save your loose change. Putting aside fifty cents a day over the course of a year will allow you to save nearly 40% of a $500 emergency fund. Savings Strategies (The Simple Dollar) Plan the Backbone of Your Vacation Around Inexpensive Stuff It’s common sense. If you plan a vacation in which the primary activities are expensive things, then the vacation is going to be expensive. If you plan a vacation in which the primary activities are inexpensive, then the vacation is going to be inexpensive. Thus, most of the time, it makes a lot more sense to choose vacations focused on inexpensive destinations. How do you actually do that, though? Here are some options for planning a great vacation around inexpensive op- tions. Head to a national or a state park. This past summer, we vacationed in western South Dakota. Over the course of a few days, we visited the Black Hills National Forest, Mount Rushmore, Devil’s Tower, and Custer State Park. Our total cost for several days of natural beauty and impressive monuments was a pittance.
  8. 8. 88 One great way to approach this is to pick up a guide to our wonderful national parks. I suggest checking out this book from your local library. Take your time and browse through the abundance of national parks and monuments, state parks, and other amaz- ing places of natural beauty in the United States. The vast majority of them are free and even the ones that have a cost are very inexpensive. Select housing that’s not adjacent to a popular site. Instead of staying at a hotel that’s literally on the beach or right next to the place you want to visit, choose a hotel that’s five or ten minutes away. Then, when you want to visit the location in question, walk there. How does this save money? You will almost always find interesting things to distract you when you’re on foot while traveling. You’ll see street performances, street art, free exhibits, and countless other interesting things going on nearby. I can’t help but recall our trip to London, where we decided to walk from our hotel through Hyde Park and over to Westminster Abbey. Seeing the monuments was free, but along the way we found statues of Peter Pan in the park, a very good group playing Britpop-style music on a street corner, a guard presentation near Buckingham Palace, and a free temporary exhibit of Cindy Sherman’s photography. All of those things were free, and they were all only discovered because we didn’t stay right by the thing we wanted to see. Instead, we walked there, gave ourselves plenty of time, and let serendipity take its course. Get a free travel guide from potential destinations. For example, if you’ve decided to visit Washington D.C., check out washington.org. Many sites for large cities allow you to filter the many possible things to do in that area down based on free admission, leaving you with a long list of great things to do that won’t cost you anything. On that Washington site, filtering for free attractions gives you a pretty impressive list of things to visit without shell- ing out a dime. Use the city’s strong metro system to get around and you can see a lot of amazing things for a pit- tance. When you’re looking for things to do when traveling, focus on finding inexpensive things first and be choosy among those, and then give yourself plenty of time to explore. Chances are you’ll have a marvelous trip without breaking the bank on overpriced travel options. BE CAREFUL (Utah County Health Department) WEAR A HELMET Each year thousands of people die and thousands more are seriously injured in bicycle, scooter, roller blade, and skateboard collisions. The most serious collisions involve head injuries. A single rule – wear a helmet – a properly fitted helmet can reduce the risk of head and brain injury by as much as 88 percent. Three Finger Rule • No more than one finger should fit between the chin and strap. • Helmet should sit two-fingers above the eyebrow. • The strap when properly fastened will make a Y shape. New helmets are available for sale at low cost of $10.00. Call (801) 851-7035. BE GOOD TO YOUR HEALTH (www.aap.org) 8 Simple Back to School Health Tips for Parents With the school year starting back up kids are going to be more prone to illnesses than they were during the summer months. As all parents know the exposure to germs increases when large groups of children are put together. There are however, eight back to school health tips that parents can follow to reduce their child's risk of becoming ill or spreading illnesses. Make sure your child is up to date on all shots: Review your child's shot records and make sure that he/she is up to date on all shots before heading back to school. There are several immunizations that are elective that a parent should look into getting for their child. One such elective is the Hepatitis A vaccination that comes in a two shot series.
  9. 9. 99 Hand Washing: Before your child goes back to school makes sure he/she understands the importance of proper hand washing. Soap and water can do wonders in reducing your child's risk of illness. A child should wash his/her hands properly before eating and after using the restroom. For times when a child cannot wash their hands with soap and water a hand sanitizing gel can be used. These can be picked up in personal size bottles at almost any store. Show your child how to use the hand sanitizing gel and tell them to use it when he/she does not have the opportunity to wash his/her hands with soap and water. Do not use other people combs/brushes: Children have this habit of sharing things with their friends. While sharing is a great concept children should be taught not to use his/her friend's combs or brushes. Nor should he/she allow their friends to use theirs. The sharing of combs and brushes can cause the spread of head lice which is more common in children during the school year. Do not send your child to school with a fever: While this back to school health tip do not reduce your child's risk of illness it does protect other kids and adults. Even if your child is feeling fine a fever is an indicator that their immune system is trying to fight something off. A child is at his/her most contagious when running a fever. This puts all children and adults that are around your child at risk. So if at all possible do not send your child to school with a fever. Sanitize hard surfaces in your home: Your child will be exposed to all sorts of germs and viruses while at school. These germs and viruses can hitch a ride back home with your child therefore it ideal that you sanitize hard surfaces that your child will be coming into contact with. A can of Lysol and/or sanitizing wipes should work to kill germs and virus that your child leaves be- hind. Maintain a well-balanced diet: Children should be getting a well-balanced diet every day. By getting a well-balanced diet a person's immune sys- tem works at top performance and therefore aids in fighting off germs and viruses that a person is exposed to. Since your child is going to be exposed to so much more now that they are back to school it is very important to their overall health that they eat a well-balanced diet. In addition to aiding in the immune system a well-balanced diet is important for brain health as well. Children have longer attention spans and retain more information when they eat healthy. Get plenty of sleep: Make sure your child is getting an adequate amount of sleep at night to help aid in their overall health as well. Just like a well-balanced diet the body needs plenty of rest to be at peak performance both physically and mentally. Peo- ple who are sleep deprived are more likely to perform poorly at tasks and more likely to suffer from frequent ill- nesses. Be consistent: Children need consistency to retain what they are being taught. Be consistent in reminding your child why he/she needs to wash their hands, not share combs/brushes, eat a well-balanced diet and get plenty of sleep. The more you stay on top of teaching your child why these things are important to their health the more habit forming it will be. Eventually these things will become habits for your child where you no longer have to remind him/her. RESOURCES Community Action Services offers Home Buyer Education Classes on a monthly basis.
