July Forest land is one of America's most prized resources, and everyone can help plant needed trees in these vital areas simply by joining the Arbor Day Foundation. Through its Replanting Our National Forests campaign, the Arbor. Day Foundation will honor each new member who joins the Foundation in July by planting 10 trees in forests that have been devastated by wildfires, insects and disease. The cost to join the Arbor Day Foundation is a $10 donation. The need to replant forests in the U.S. is great. Recent years of unprecedented wildfires has lei a backlog of nearly 1 million acres that need replanting in National Forests. The Arbor Day Found- ation has worked with the U.S. Forest Service for more than 20 years to plant trees in forests that have the greatest need. It is essential to preserve forests because they produce oxygen, clean the air and are a source of abundant, clean and healthy drinking water for more than 180 million Americans. "Keeping our forests vibrant is vital to the overall health of the Earth, and we can help simply by planting trees," said John Rosenow, chief executive and founder of the Arbor Day Foundation. "By planting trees in our forests, we can preserve these national treasures so they will continue to benefit Americans for generations to come." To join the Arbor Day Foundation and help plant trees in our National Forests, send a $10 membership contribution to Replanting Our National Forests, Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Ave., Nebraska City, NE 68410, or go to arborday.org/july. Stay cool while protecting the environment even during dog days of summer This summer, you don't have to let sweltering temperatures and sky-high energy bills cause you to sweat. By taking a few simple energy-efficient steps, you can beat the heat while keeping more money in your pockets. The average family spends $1,900 a year on energy bills nearly half of which goes to heating and cooling. Due to hot and humid weather predictions for the next few weeks, the demand for electricity is forecast to reach high load levels. EPA is asking homeowners and em- ployers to make a special effort to reduce their electricity con- sumption. Here are specific steps that everyone can take: Replace incandescent light bulbs with Energy Star qualified compact fluores- cent light bulbs. These bulbs use 75 percent less energy than regular bulbs. Remind your kids to shut off the light when they leave a room and the com- puter when they're finished. Use room fans to reduce the need for air conditioriing.

Keep the thermostat at a constant, comfortable "level. Lowering. the thermostat below the desired tempera- ture will not cool the home faster. Run appliances such as ovens, washing machines, dryers and dishwashers in the early morning or evening hours when it's cooler outside. Keep shades, blinds and curtains closed. Aboiat 40 percent of unwanted heat comes from the windows. Place window air con- ditioning units on the shady side of the home to avoid overworking the unit in the hot daytime sun.

Designed to alleviate fluctuating prices for shoppers, Food City's Low Price Lockdown will "lock down" retail prices on 10,000 items through Labor Day, regardless of the wholesale cost. Leveraging its relationship with local grow- ers and using its buying power with national suppliers, Food City has negotiated pricing on everything - from Bush's Baked Beans to Minute Maid Orange Juice to Ultra Down Fabric Softener - in order to pass along savings to shoppers. "Times are tough, and we're committed to doing everything we can to keep costs down for our loyal customers," said Steve Smith, Food City president and chief executive officer. "Low Price Lockdown means shoppers can count on us for consistent pricing all summer long." Another 90-day period will begin after Labor Day with pri- ces on many seasonal items locked down through the holi- days. In conjunction with the new pricing model, Food City just launched a dedicated microsite to explain the program and other ways to save, including down- loadable coupons for shoppers. The new microsite is located at www, lowpricelockdown.com. Food City's microsite feat- ures many of the items included in the 90-day price lockdown. The site highlights Food City's price vs. the price of the item in a competitive store. There is also an. area where several of the weekly advertised sale items are featured with their correspond- ing prices. A third section shows compare-and-save items avail- able in the store - Food City does the price comparisons so its shoppers don't have to. The footer of the new site includes a link to the new "Lockdown-Speed Stacker" TV commercial http://www, youtube.corn/watch? v=PkiGCUTK-jY with a button for shoppers to send comments to Food City with their input on the campaign and to access a downloadable coupon link for further savings. "We want to hear from our customers, because our business is relationship based," Smith said. "No one knows our stores better than the folks who shop with us. Their feedback is invaluable." Programs like Food City's Fuel Bucks Rewards, Milk Mon-ey, Pharmacy Discount Club and the ValuCard offer ongoing savings incentives to Shoppers, in addition to the new Low Price Lockdown.
