December 30, 2011

ST. MARYS – Since the St. Marys Nurses Study Club officially began in 1940, 35 scholarships have been awarded to area residents pursuing a nursing career, and the very first recipient of that scholarship has said it made a significant difference in her life.
Connie (Meyer) Otteni, who recently joined the study club, was awarded the scholarship in 1966.

'Tis the season to prevent frozen pipes

December 30, 2011

Now that snow has finally begun to fall and the temperature has dropped, homeowners run the risk of frozen pipes and water damage.
According to Ed McNell of St. Marys Plumbing Heating & Cooling, something as cheap and simple as adding insulation to piping can save a homeowner thousands of dollars down the road.
"One of biggest problems inside of homes are small drafts," McNell said. "If a pipe is running by an outside window or close to an outside wall where a draft can come in, there is a high tendency to get a freeze right at that spot."
