    The moving air is caused by differ-ences in air pressure within the atmo-sphere.

    As air moves over the surfaces of Earth, the movement is all about wind, from areas of high pressure to low pressure. What causes the changes in pressure is mainly energy from the sun, which radiates heat and light en-ergy. When the energy reaches Earth, the surface absorbs it and heats the air. The differences in temperature and the rotation of the planet create wind.

    Hot air rises, which reduces the at-mospheric pressure near the earths surfaces, drawing in cooler air.

    Wind is referenced in terms of direc-tions. Easterly winds blow from east to west; westerly winds blow from west to east. Winds have different levels of speed, from breeze to gale depend-ing on wind velocity. Wind speeds are based on the Beaufort scale, which divides the speeds into 12 categories, starting at less than 1 mph.

    About 1 to 2 percent of the suns energy is converted into wind energy, which is a source of power that will never run out.

    CAPTURING WINDMany people in the world view wind as a better alternative for generating elec-tricity than the traditional coal, hydro or nuclear power plants.

    Wind is fueled by kinetic energy, which is energy from any mass in mo-tion. Technology has been developed to capture the winds kinetic energy to convert it to electricity or mechanical power. That wind power is a natural and forever-lasting source of electricity. Its a huge step from reliance on fossil fu-els. Plus, wind power is clean, doesnt contribute to pollution and doesnt re-quire solutions for waste.

    One of the biggest obstacles to har-nessing wind power is humankind. Wind farms need to be located on vast

    wind-producing areas like coastlines or large tracts of land. However, agricul-ture, development and coastal dwellers who do not want their views obstructed are often in confl ict with wind powered technology.

    WINDMILLS TOWIND TURBINES

    People have been capturing the energy of wind for centuries.

    By 200 B.C., windmills in China were pumping water and in Persia and the Middle East vertical axis windmills were grinding grain.

    The concept of windmills was brought to Europe by merchants and explorers.

    The Dutch people adapted the wind-mill for draining lakes and marshes.

    When settlers took the windmill technology to America in the last 19th century, windmills became a way to

    pump water for ranches and farms and generate electricity for homes and businesses.

    Industrialization led to the demise of the early windmills, but later generated another wind machine, commonly referred to as wind turbines.

    A wind turbine works the opposite of a fan. Instead of using electricity to cre-ate wind, turbines use winds to make electricity. The wind turns the blades; the blades spin a shaft that connects to a generator, where electricity is made. The electricity is then distributed through transmission lines for human use.

    wind turbine of its time began operat-ing on a hill top in Vermont. The tur-bine fed electricity to the area utility network during World War II.

    Lower fuel prices after WW II prompted a decline in interest in wind energy in the U.S. But in the 1970s when the price of oil went through the roof wind turbines gained steam once again.

    As technology evolved, efforts to har-ness electricity from the wind turned to wind farms or wind power plants groups of wind turbines that feed elec-tricity into the utility grid.

    At the end of 2010, wind power ac-counted for about 3 percent of the elec-tricity generated in the U.S., which is second in wind power generation be-hind China.

    Today, wind energy is becoming

    comparable in price to conventional electricity sources in some areas.

    The Bureau of Land Management just announced plans for three wind projects in California and two in Or-egon on BLM lands.

    The U.S. Department of Interior has started the process for the fi rst com-mercial wind lease off the Delaware coast under DOIs Atlantic Offshore Wind program.

    FUN WITH WINDIf there is a way to use Mother Nature for recreational purposes, humans will fi gure it out. Think what ocean waves and snow has bestowed on surfers and skiers. Think wind when it comes to fl ying kites, sailing the seas, hang glid-ing or parasailing.

    It was American educator Laurence J. Peter who made the following sage observation: An economist is an expert who will know tomorrow why the things he predicted yester-day didnt happen today. Inciden-tally, he also came up with whats known as the Peter Principle: In a hierarchy, every employee tends to rise to his level of incompetence.

    Ever wonder why its called the silver screen? In the early days of the cinema industry, the projection screens were embedded with real silver to enhance the refl ective na-ture of the surface.

    Worried about grocery prices go-

    Those who study such things say that Americans drink more car-bonated beverages every year than coffee, tea, sports drinks and juice combined.

    A legislator in the Louisiana State House of Representatives once in-troduced a bill that would make it illegal to charge a bald man more than 25 cents for a haircut.

    The plant formally known as titan arum produces the largest cluster of fl owers in the world, sometimes reaching more than 10 feet in height. Whats perhaps even more notable, though, is its odor: The plant gives off a strong smell that is most often compared to that of a decompos-ing animal. Hence the plants more common name, the corpse fl ower.

    Man-made wind tunnel structures (like those used in aerodynamic re-search for the study of the effects of air on stationary objects) have become a popular venue for indoor skydiving. No worries about a fear of heights, jumping out of airplanes or smashing to the ground. In a contained area, the sporty wind tunnel can lift a person as much as 90 feet above ground. Its like free falling without paranoia or the parachute.

    For the sports car enthusiast, a U.K.-based company, Ecotricity, developed a car called the Nemesis, which is faster than a V12 Ferrari. Ecotric-ity supplies energy from its 51 wind-mills and 15 wind parks to more than 40,000 customers across the U.K.

    The Nemesis, totally powered by 100 percent green electricity, has reached 100 mph in 8.5 seconds and is capable of 170 mph. It runs from 100 to 150 miles between charges and can be charged from empty under two hours by its fast charger or eight to nine hours from its regular supply means both are cable systems built into the rear of the car.

    Dale Vince, the person who launched Ecotricity, has been voted Britains leading green entrepreneur. Vince said he wanted to create an electric car fueled entirely by wind power a car that would also be exotic and de-sirable challenging stereotypes. The car debuted last year.

    WIND SONGAlthough today wind chimes are mainly thought of as tools that pro-duce soothing sounds, before the 19th century they were used in Asia to ward off evil spirits or intruders. Their sounds werent so soothing more like deafening. Early wind

    chimes were carved from bone and hung from roofs and eaves and other overhead structures.

    In Italy and Greece, wind chimes were looked upon as magnets for kind and generous spirits. They pro-vided protection and good luck. Wind chimes eventually made their way to the western world, where sailors and farmers often used them to predict short-term weather patterns. The di-rection of the wind could indicate temperature changes, and wind speed could predict the arrival time of a storm or front. The logging industry used information from wind-chime weather forecasting to organize work schedules.

    The modern-day wind chime, created out of a variety of materials from sea-shells to metal to stones, is used to enhance a garden or porch and com-plement an area that offers a calm setting. Wind chimes today come in a myriad of musical sounds and shapes and sizes.

    Medium/Clairvoyant/Tai Yi Energy - Tami Urbanek

    Tai Yi means Supreme Movement and is an ancient form of Chinese energy work that is similar to acupuncture and can assist in many ailments.

    Many times people joke about how many men will refuse to stop and ask for directions when they are driving around lost. It is to note that many women have the same issue! Not asking for directions is a simple ex-ample of how people can refuse to request and accept assistance. Why would anyone deny assistance?

    The answer to that varies depending on the person. Some people grow up with the belief that it is weak to ask for assistance. Some individuals grow up with the belief that he or she is not worth the assistance. Some-times, people do not know how to ask for assistance and so they would rather not attempt it at all. Many people confuse asking to be taken care of with asking for assistance. This creates another issue.

    People who carry the belief that they are not capable of solving or healing a diffi culty will, many times, ask to be taken care of. They will ask others to do the healing or tasks for them. People who carry this type of energy may attract a person who will do the taking care of. They will attract family and friends who take on this task. This keeps them in victim ener-gy, an energy that says you are not capable of resolving this diffi culty, so therefore wait to be saved. It is common for people to deny that they

    LIFE ENERGY FLOW TAI YI - OPENING

    UP YOURSELFTO ASSISTANCE

    are doing this. Waiting to be saved will interfere with true assistance.

    When a person has decided that he or she is worth assistance and truly desires it, will attract or fi nd indi-viduals who can offer the assistance. Like energy attracts like energy. Angry people attract angry people, depressed people attract depressed people, and joyful/passionate people attract joyful/passionate people. A person who desires to truly offer real assistance will also be a person who desires assistance. Like attracts like.

    One can open him or herself up to assistance by understanding what the past resistance has been and how long it has been there. That person can then move through the resis-tance and simply ask for assistance. When the request is made, it sends out an energetic frequency that at-tracts people to the person making the request. Then opportunities will be presented to accept the assistance even if the assistance does not match the persons expectations. If the as-sistance is denied and rejected, the person moves back into old energy and would need to begin the process again.

    Life Energy Flow Tai Yi can assist with identifying the denial of assis-tance and how to reverse it. When this occurs, the person begins heal-ing on a deeper level. No one is ever alone, though many perceive they are alone. One cannot run out of assistance. It is not a water well. The more it is requested and utilized, the more it is offered. If one desires as-sistance, then seek it, honor it, uti-lize it.

    Kids Themed Bedrooms Part 2 of 2

    Themed Bedrooms are justplain fun! Just be sure thetheme is not a passing fador faze otherwise you will bechanging their theme overand over. It's fair to expectto change a theme aroundevery 2- 4 years, especiallyin the stages of teenagegrowth when they are redis-covering themselves daily.

    Do the work yourselves andbe frugal when purchasingthe props for your theme.In other words, dont spend$400 on a silk palm tree iftomorrow your child isgoing to want a NASASpace Shuttle Theme with anightsky projection kit.

    - To create an outsdoortheme, paint your ceiling lightblue and add some whiteclouds with a sponge. Havepet birds in a cage (or paintbirds on the walls for a clean-er idea). Paint the bottom footof wall green for grass andthen paint long green stemsand top them off with silk flow-ers for a 3-D look. Scentedair fresheners add anotherdimension to the theme.

    - If you have a fondness forthe beach, paint crashingwaves on the wall, put a grassumbrella over the bed andhang real tropical plants. Putsea shells on your bed standand dresser or glue them tothe walls. Use fish netting foryour curtains. Pull dads oldsurfboard out of the attic!

    - A mural of a garden, a racecar shop with corrugatedmetal on the walls, a favoritesport with a scoreboard paint-ed on the wall and a real bas-ketball hoop, or just anabstract design like coloredsquares, polka-dots, and rec-tangles in the team colorsthroughout the room.

    - Actually adding 3-D pieces tothe design can create a realis-tic theme for your child suchas using a stone veneer, barnwood, corrugated metal, andother objects on the walls. Ofcourse, the more extensiveyou go, the hard it will be toredecorate when their styleschange, so think ahead, buthave fun.

    - Also don't forget that part ofthe theme can be presented inthe sheets and bedspread.Silver satin pillowcases, plaidColorado country flannelsheets, netting over the bed,race car red bedspread.alladd to the theme.

    - Murals are actually easy andfun to paint. Simply find a pic-ture you like and take it to acopy center and have it madeinto a transparency. Then rentor borrow an overhead projec-tor, and project the image tothe size you want on yourwall. Outline the image with apencil, and write in the colorfor each section so you knowwhat colors to use. Yourmural can wrap around theroom and even onto the ceil-ing (like branches on a tree).

    On April 17, 1790, American states-man, printer, scientist and writer Benjamin Franklin dies in Philadelphia at age 84. Deeply interested in science and technol-ogy, his inventions include the Franklin stove, bifocal eyeglasses and the lightning rod.

    On April 11, 1814, Napoleon Bonaparte, emperor of France, abdicates the throne and, in the Treaty of Fontainebleau, is ban-ished to the Mediterranean island of Elba. He died at age 52 on May 5, 1821, possibly from stomach cancer, although some theo-ries contend he was poisoned.

    On April 12, 1908, a re in Chelsea, Mass., at the Boston Blacking Company leaves 12 dead, 85 missing and presumed dead and more than 17,000 homeless. Due to high winds, a good portion of the city burned. It took nearly 10 years for Chelsea to be completely rebuilt.

    On April 16, 1943, in Basel, Switzerland, Albert Hoffman, a Swiss chemist, acciden-tally consumes LSD-25, a synthetic drug

    he had created in 1938 as part of his re-search into the medicinal value of lysergic acid compounds. Widespread use of the so-called mind-expanding drug did not begin until the 1960s.

    On April 15, 1959, new Cuban leader Fidel Castro visits the United States. The trip got off to an inauspicious start when it became clear that President Dwight D. Eisenhower had no intention of meeting with Castro. Instead, Eisenhower went to the golf course to avoid any chance meet-ing.

    On April 13, 1964, Sydney Poitier be-comes the fi rst African American to win the Academy Award for Best Actor, for his role as a construction worker in Lilies of the Field (1963). He debuted on Broad-way in 1946 in an all-black production of Lysistrata, and by 1950 he was appearing in Hollywood lms, beginning with No Way Out.

    On April 14, 1975, the American airlift of Vietnamese orphans to the United States ends after 2,600 children are transported to America. Operation Baby Lift lasted 10 days and was carried out during the fi nal, desperate phase of the war, as North Viet-namese forces were closing in on Saigon.

    AGING MYTHSRemember the Termites? No, it wasnt a 50s band. The Termites were the 1,500 high IQ children in a study begun by Dr. Lewis Terman back in 1921. Studies of that group of people have continued to provide a wealth of information for scientists over the years. The latest project, a 20-year ef-fort described in a book called The Lon-gevity Project by Howard S. Friedman and Leslie R. Martin, refutes a number of so-called truths weve come to believe about living long lives.

    Here are a few of the myths debunked in this study.

    Myth: Athletic people live longer. The fi nding: The key is to be active when youre middle aged, but not necessar-ily engaged in strenuous exercise. The longevity benefi t came from fi nding an enjoyable physical activity and staying with it.

    Myth: Those with more education live longer. The fi nding: Not necessarily so.

    More important than higher degrees was to be productive in whatever career was chosen and to push through challenges.

    Myth: Those who worry too much short-en their life span. The fi nding: Being con-scientious, organized and detail-oriented led to longer lives, likely because people who have those characteristics are more likely to protect their health and live a more sensible, balanced life.

    Myth: Relaxed people live longer. The fi nding: Increased responsibility and challenges brought longer life. Those who were ambitious and motivated lived longer. Translation: dont retire too ear-ly.

    Myth: Married people live longer. The fi nding: Men who stayed married lived long lives, as did married or divorced women. Divorced men fared the worst.

    Dr. Friedman has a Secrets of Longev-ity blog online at the Psychology Today website. Go online to www.psychology-today.com and put Secrets of Longev-ity in the search box.

    TRIPTANS OFFER SOME RELIEF FROM

    MIGRAINESDEAR DR. DONOHUE: Please write about migraine headaches. My granddaughter, age 22, suffers from them. She is a college student and also works. What causes these headaches? -- E.F.

    ANSWER: Migraines start out as one-sided throbbing headaches that can last 24 or more hours. As time passes, the entire head might hurt. Along with the pulsating pain, nausea often strikes, and sometimes people have to vomit. Migraine sufferers are sensitive to light and sound, so they seek a quiet, dark room where they can lie down.

    The cause of these headaches is con-troversial. A popular theory is that a wave of slow electrical activity spreads over the brain and infl ames its cover-ings, which produces the pain.The above cause of migraines, I am sure, is not what you wanted. You want to know what brings them on. Triggers for migraine include too little or too much sleep, skipping meals, strong odors, bright lights and loud music. Women often fi nd that menstrual peri-ods will usher in the headaches. Stress, both physical and emotional, can start them. Foods that often serve to initi-ate a migraine are chocolate, cheeses, fatty foods, sausage, salami, oranges, tomatoes, onions, red wine, peanuts and hot dogs.

    In the past 20 years, triptans have brought a marked change in the treat-ment of migraines. Sumatriptan (Imi-trex), zolmitriptan (Zomig), almotrip-tan (Axert), rizatriptan (Maxalt), frovatriptan (Frova) and naratriptan (Amerge) can control severe migraines and are available as pills, nasal sprays and self-administered injections. For

    less-intense pain, aspirin, Tylenol, ibuprofen and naproxen are suffi cient.When migraines recur with disrupting regularity, preventive medicines have a place in treatment. They include pro-pranolol (Inderal) and verapamil.

    The booklet on headaches deals with the common varieties, including mi-graines. Readers can obtain a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue -- No. 901W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipients printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery.

    DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My big-gest health problem, if you can call it a health problem, is getting to sleep at night. I lie in bed for what seems an eternity before I fall asleep. A friend told me she had the same problem and cured it with melatonin. Id like to try it if its safe. Is it? I am 76 years old and would like a few years of good sleep. -- T.R.

    ANSWER: Melatonin is a hormone secreted by the pineal gland, a small gland attached to the brain. It condi-tions the body to adapt to day-night cycles. Melatonin secretion is 10 times greater at night, with peak secretion occurring between 11 p.m. and 3 a.m.Evidence suggests that this hormone shortens the time it takes to fall asleep and lengthens the time spent in unin-

    terrupted sleep. Melatonin production wanes with age, and its lack could ex-plain your sleep problems.

    It also has been used for shift workers to get their brains and bodies condi-tioned to new sleep-wake cycles, and travelers sometimes take it to prevent jet lag.

    Melatonin isnt sold as a drug, so its not closely supervised. Serious side

    effects havent been reported. A safe starting dose is 0.2 mg to 0.3 mg.

    You are from a small town like, say, Monument or Palmer Lake. But there you are visiting the big city. You have plans to see a friend who will take you to a thing at a place with a couple of guys youve never really met. So you wake up early, check out of your hotel room and bumble around with the map you bought at the airport trying to nd the subway. You walk down the dirty steps and practically get trampled on the way down.

    Then you look around, completely con-fused, and realize you have to buy a tick-et from one of these electronic machine things. You do that. You stand in line and walk through the spinning spiky wheel that counts people, and approach the long silver bullet in the ground. You walk on the train. It begins to move. You are now in transi-tion.

    ON TO THE NEXT:TYING UP LOOSE ENDS

    A lot has happened since the last Sports Snippetz. Heres where you catch up!

    -Lewis-Palmer Hockey won another State Championship, in a dominating 5-2 win over Regis in the icy dome of Denvers Pepsi Center. And though the game took place nearly a month ago, the Rangers are still in high gear over the whole thing.

    Back-to-back state titles are rare and deli-cious, so the school (or both schools, as its a joint-team) has the right to encompass some good feeling for the remainder of the school year.

    - Lewis-Palmer Basketball proved State rankings to be much truer than they had wished. Entering as the number 2 team in Colorado 4A Basketball, they stomped through the fi rst round of playoffs in a de-cisive 66-36 win over Sand creek. But then, alas, the Rangers had to face the number 1 rated team, Sterling. They lost by (and get this) one point. Yes, LP fell in a 49-48 heartbreaker to the eventual State Champs.

    Team leader Josh Scott ended the season as one of the best players in 4A basketball n-ishing with over 600 points, 64 assists, and 107 blocks. He has next year to accomplish the goal of a State Championship Game appearance, before he graduates. Last year, the Rangers couldnt produce a playoff win, this year, they got over that hump. On to the next one, I guess.

    WITH EVERY END, COME

    AN AH HECK, YOU KNOW THE

    PHRASEHeres what to look forward to in the sports world for Lew-

    is-Palmer and Palmer Ridge teams.

    -Lewis-Palmer Girls Soccer had a great ride last season. They were undefeated, 15-0, entering the playoffs as the number 1 team in the state. I covered them exten-sively last year expecting a predictable, yet very journalist-friendly, breezy ride to the top. Unfortunately they ended up on the wrong side of an upset, courtesy of fourth-seeded Wheat Ridge, in the State Semi-Fi-nals. They lost 4-0 in what was by far their worst showing of the year. This year, they started with a redemption game, a 7-1 win over DEvelyn. But they followed that with a 0-1 home loss to Golden. The season is up in the air, but expectations are still high.

    -Palmer Ridge Girls Soccer on the other hand had ordinary expectations, and has run out of the gate with a 3-0 start to their season. Junior Haley Fisher appears an emerging star from the fi rst few games, as the goals and assists leader to this point.

    Defensively, the team appears dominant at times, allowing no goals in the fi rst two games. Though the Bears havent exactly been tested by the best of the best yet, the Girls have a manageable schedule until a good test at Home against Longmont on April 16th. Game starts a noon; see you there.

    -Palmer Ridge Baseball is a pleasant sur-prise, as is team star Ty Barkell. The team is 6-0 to start the season. Theyve racked up 67 runs to this point, and given up just 32. So they score twice as much as they let the other team score; thats a sound strat-egy in my book. Barkell currently owns a batting average of .667 and has conquered two Home Runs. Steven Leonard is the RBI leader, with 11. The combination looks un-stoppable.

    Their next home game takes place at Palmer Ridge on Saturday, April 16th, at 4:30pm, where you can witness them not being stopped. In fact, it happens directly after the end of the Palmer Ridge Soccer game I just referred to above. Get your Sat-urday fi x of sports on the 16th!

    No, really, do it. (Insert dramatic music here) Im watching you

    New DVD Releases forWeek of April 12, 2011PICKS OF THE WEEK

    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part I (PG-13) -- In a shameless attempt to milk every last drop from the Harry Pot-ter cash cow, Warner Brothers decided to split the last installment of the Harry Potter series into two lms and release them eight months apart -- leaving fans of the series to endure the mostly boring rst lm that sets up all the actiony goodness for the nale --instead of just making one great movie.Harry, Ron and Hermoine (Daniel Radc-

    liffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson) are on the run from Voldemorts Death Eaters as they begin their quest to nd the ve horcruxes that contain the soul of the evil wizard. Sadly, most of the time is spent in a forest where there is a lot of arguing and handwringing, and not much questing.Deathly Hallows isnt a complete waste of time. There are a few great moments in the lm (Hermoine erasing her parents memory of her existence is especially mov-ing), but for the most part the lm is noth-ing but a glacial-paced set-up for the July release of the nale that weve all been waiting a decade to see. The Incredibles (PG) -- Pixars brilliant and entertaining 2004 superhero romp -nally gets a Blu-ray release. Mr. Incredible and his super-powered family must hide their identities from the world. As a part of a superhero relocation program, the once-famous hero and his

    brood now live a dull, suburban life. But their humdrum existence comes quickly to an end when a new supervillain appears -- and he holds a massive grudge against Mr. Incredible.The four-disc Blu-Ray/DVD combo in-cludes not only all the great special features from the original DVD release, but a slew of new behind-the-scenes goodies and a digital copy of the lm.From Dusk Till Dawn (R) -- Without question, From Dusk Till Dawn is the greatest Aztec Vampire Stripper movie ever committed to celluloid. This 1996 grind-house epic written by Quentin Tarantino and directed by Robert Rodriguez stars George Clooney and Tarantino as the Gecko broth-ers, two bank-robbin desperados on the run who kidnap a minister (Harvey Keitel) and his two children and hold up in a Mexican strip joint.Little do the brothers suspect that star at-

    traction Santanico Pandemonium (Salma Hayek, performing an unforgettable dance with an albino python) and all the strippers and club employees are bloodthirsty vam-pires with a need to feed.

    ARIES (March 21 to April 19) It isnt al-ways easy for the rambunctious Aries to give a second thought to their often spur-of-the-moment choices. But aspects favor recheck-ing a decision before declaring it fi nal.

    TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Information emerges for the business-driven Bovine who feels ready to restart a stalled project. Be pre-pared to make adjustments as needed at any time during the process.

    GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Part of you wants to complete plans for an upcoming event, while your other self wants to see how things develop rst. Compromise by moving ahead with your plans while being open to change.

    CANCER (June 21 to July 22) An unexpect-ed change in a relationship could open up a problem or could lead to a much-needed and too-long-delayed reassessment of a number of matters. The choice is yours to make.

    LEO (July 23 to August 22) Time for the Lion to total the plusses and minuses result-ing from recent personal and/or professional decisions. See what worked, what didnt and why, and base your next big move on the re-sults.

    VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) The clever Virgo can make persuasion work by presenting a case built on hard facts. Senti-ment might touch the heart, but its good, sol-id information that invariably wins the day.

    LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You usually can win over the most stubborn skep-tics on your own. But this time you can ben-efi t from supporters who have been there, done that and are willing to speak up on your behalf.

    SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You win admiration for your determination to do the right thing. Dont be distracted from that course, despite the offer of tempting al-ternatives that might suddenly turn up.

    SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) While you still need to maintain control of a dominant situation, a new development emerges, making the task easier and the out-come potentially more rewarding.

    CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) New factors might have a positive effect on a still-pending matter, but only if the informa-tion proves to be credible. Trusted colleagues might be able to offer needed advice.

    AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) The week favors moderation, especially if a health problem is involved. Resist the im-pulse to do more than might be good for you at this time. You can catch up later.

    PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You could feel more than a mite upset by some-one or some people who might be creating problems for you. Find out why they wont change their ways. Their reasons might sur-prise you.

    THE UNCOMMITTED

    FIXATIONBy Nick Y.

    What is it about the word fl aky? Its taken as such an insult, no matter the context or truth of the matter. The same goes for commitment issues; its hard to hear. But Pinz Bowling Center understands the core of the problem, whether it be the daddy issues, the history of futile relationships, or the pet fi sh you had that ran away just three days after Santa gave it to you.

    Because of this, Pinz is offering you a once in a lifetime opportunity; the kind where you are encouraged to be fl aky

    Its the Anytime League! Starting Monday, April 25th at 6:30pm, Pinz Bowling Center asks you to show up, well, anytime you feel like it. Mixed teams of four have the freedom to bowl anytime during the week, as long as you get the job done by the following Monday.

    That gives participants plenty of time for the important things in the week, like watching American Idol, playing middle-aged softball, sitting through an elementary school play, and buying new gloves to replace the ones that were stolen by a witty squirrel as you attempted to seal the hole in the side of your house that he so conveniently calls home.

    Sign ups are taking place as of now. So while youre wasting your time reading this article, you could be taking a stroll down 105 to Pinz. You could be walking in the door and greeting the incredibly friendly and well-smelling attendant at the front desk. You could be touching pen to paper, dedicating yourself to your new favorite weekly ritual - bowling. You could be doing all of that RIGHT NOW.

    Of course, you can always do it tomorrow right?

    For more information on how to join this fabulous league for procrastinating peeps, general bowling questions, or Pinz other summer league options, call them at (719) 487-7469

    FINANCIAL FOCUS

    MORTGAGEDECISIONS CAN

    MAKE A BIGDIFFERENCE IN

    ACHIEVINGFINANCIAL

    GOALSProvided by Adam Grayson

    of EdwardJones Investments

    If youre purchasing a new home or refi nancing your existing one, youve got some mortgage-related decisions to consider. And since your mortgage may well be the biggest fi -nancial transaction you ever make and one that can affect your long-term fi nancial goals, such as retirement youll want to weigh your options care-fully.

    What types of choices might you face? Here are some of the most important ones:Fixed or adjustable? With a xed-rate mortgage, your payment will remain the same throughout the life of your loan. However, if interest rates drop signifi cantly below your mortgage rate, you may then be paying too much for your loan and will have to go through the time, effort and expense of refi -nancing. With an adjustable-rate mort-gage (ARM), your initial rate is likely quite low, so you can afford a bigger mortgage. This could be an advantage if you know your income will be rising or you are confi dent youll sell your house within the next ve years. How-ever, your ARM payment and interest rate can rise substantially, even with caps in place, and these adjustments can affect your cash ow. So, before taking out an ARM, make sure you un-derstand the terms involved and how they will affect you down the road.

    15-year or 30-year? These arent the only mortgage lengths available, but they are among the most common. The advantage of a 15-year mortgage is that youll pay it off quicker and, in the process, potentially save thousands of dollars in interest. The disadvantage, of course, is that youll likely need to

    come up with much bigger monthly payments than if you took out a 30-year mortgage. And since your mort-gage payments will be lower with a 30-year loan, youll have more money available each month to invest for the future.

    Over time, these extra investments can really add up. Suppose, for example, that you invested $100 a month to a tax-deferred vehicle, such as a tradi-tional IRA, that earned a hypothetical 7% average annual return. After 30 years, youd end up with a little more than $117,000, before you started pay-ing taxes on withdrawals. But if your 30-year mortgage freed up enough cash for you to contribute $300 a month to that same IRA, earning that same 7% average annual return, youd accumu-late more than $350,000 after 30 years, before taxes . Thats a big difference and the extra money could perk up your retirement lifestyle considerably. Keep in mind, of course, that these ex-amples dont refl ect the performance of any available investments. Also, you will have to pay taxes when you start taking withdrawals from a traditional IRA, and any withdrawals you make before you turn age 59 might be sub-ject to a 10% penalty.

    Larger or smaller down payment? The bigger your down payment, the smaller your monthly payments, and the more you may have available to invest each month. But if you go with a smaller down payment, you most likely will initially have more money available for other purposes, such as paying down debt or purchasing investments. Youll have to compare the alternatives care-fully.

    In fact, youll have to compare the op-tions for each question weve looked at because mortgage issues have an emo-tional component as well as a fi nancial one, and only you can make the deci-sions that t your situation. So think about your choices today, as they can have a big impact on your life tomor-row.
