Skin cancer is a lifestyle disease, affecting young women, older men and everyone in' between. One in five Americans will develop skin cancer in the course of a lifetime; 13 million Americans are living with a history of nonmelanoma skin cancer and nearly 800,000 Americans are living with a history of melanoma, the most dangerous form of skin cancer. But there is good news: because skin cancer is chiefly lifestyle disease, it is also highly " preventable. "About 90 perce,t of non- melanoma skin cancers and 65 percent of melanoma cases are associated with exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun," say, s Perry Robins, MD, Presidem (d" lhe Skin Cancer Foundation. "Everyone, regardless of" skin color should make staying safe in the sun a priority and incorporate sun protection measures into their daily life." Reduce Your Skin Cancer Risk: 1. Seek the shade, especially between 10 am and 4 pm when the sun is strongest. An extra rule of thumb is the "shadow rule." If your shadow is shorter than you are, the sun's harmful UV radiation is stronger; if your shadow is longer, UV radiation is less intense. 2. Do not burn. A person's risk for melanoma doubles if he or she has hd five or more sunburns at any point in life. 3. Avoid tanning and UV tanning booths. UV radiation from tanning machines is known to cause cancer in Immans, and the more time a person has spent tanning indoors, the higher the risk. Those who make just four visits to a tanning salon per year can increase their risk for melanoma by I1 percent, and their risk for the two most common forms of skin cancer, basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, by 15 percent. 4. Cover up with clothing, including a broad-brimmed hat and UV-blocking sunglasses. Clothing can be your most effective form of sun protection, so make the most ot it with densely woven and bright-or dark-colored fabrics, which offer the best defense. The more skin you cover, the better, so choose long sleeves and long pants whenever possible. 5. Use a broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher every day. For extended outdoor activity, use a water-resista'nt, broad spec- trum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. 6. Apply I ounce (2 tablespoons) of sunscreen to your entire body 30 minutes before going outside. Reapply every two hours or immediately after swimming or excessive sweating. 7. Keep nevborns out of the sun. Sunscreens may be used on babies over the age of six months, but they shoukl also be protected by shade and clothing. Children are very sensitive to ultraviolet radiation -just one severe sunburn in childhood doubles the chances of developing melanoma later in life. 8. Examine your skin head- to-toe every month. While self- exams shouldn't replace the important annual skin exam performed by a physician, they offer the best chance of detecting the early warning signs of skin and Why It's So Important cancer. If you notice any Change in an existing mole or discover a new one that looks suspicious, see a physician immediately. 9. See your physician every year for a professional skin exam.

CODE 56-585.1 A 5 e CASE NO. PUE-2013-00010 On March 29, 2013, Appalachian Power Company ("APCo" or "Company"), pursuant to 56-585.1 A 5 e of the Code of Virginia ("Code"), filed with the State Corporation Commission ("Commission") a petition ("Petition") seeking approval of a rate adjustment clause, designated as Rider E-RAC, to recover costs associated with projects that, according to the Company, are necessary to comply with state and federal envirOnmental laws and regulations. APCo seeks to recover, from its Virginia retail customers, approximately $38.5 million that the Company indicates are Virginia jurisdictional environmental costs that it incurred in 2011 and 2012 but that the Company has not recovered through its rates. APCo indicates that the recovery it requests through the proposed E-RAC is consistent with prior rulings of the Commission and the Supreme Court of Virginia. Based on these rulings, the Petition does not. request inclusion in the E-RAC of any capacity equalizatJon charges or internal labor costs but does request the recovery of unrecovered costs of projects that have previously been included in the Company's base rates. APCo requests that its requested recovery of $38.5 million be collected through the proposed rate adjustment clause over a one-year period beginning on or around February 1, 2014. According to the Company, the proposed E-RAC, if approved, will increase a residential customer's monthly bill, based on 1,000 kilowatt hours of usage per month, by $3.15. The proposal also will affect non-residential customer bills. APCo's first E-RAC, which was approved for the recovery of $36 million, expired on March 31, 2013. The Petition indicates thatAPCo is in the process of determining the amount it recovered under the expired E-RAC. If the Company determines that its recovery exceeded the $36 million authorized by the Commission, APCo indicates it will file supplemental testimony requesting a credit be included in the final determination of a revenue requirement in this case. Interested persons are encouraged to review the Petition and supporting documents for the details of these and other proposals. While the total revenue that may be approved by the Commission is limited to the amount produced by the Company's proposed rates, TAKE NOTICE that the Commission may approve revenues and adopt rates, fees, charges, tariff revisions, and terms and conditions of service that differ from those appearing in the Company's Petition and supporting documents and may apportion revenues among customer classes and/or design rate, m a manner differing from that shown in the Company's Petition and supporting documents.
