Greenworks Philadelphia:
Save energy and money at home

If you own a house that was built more than 30 years ago, and it has never been renovated to reduce heating and cooling costs, it is likely that you have an opportunity to realize substantial savings on your fuel bills if you renovate.

The reason why the age of the house is an important consideration is that in the ‘70s home construction was far less energy efficient than it is today. In 1973, during the first Arab oil embargo, when the price of heating oil and gasoline skyrocketed and Americans suffered their first major energy scare, they looked for ways to reduce their use of oil for heating by whatever means were available. That scare spurred a frantic search to save energy, not unlike this past year when the price of oil spiked to a record high of $150  a barrel.

Great despite greatness

When great public figures die, we are often left wrestling with an interpretation of their life.

The death of Sen. Ted Kennedy, who finally lost his struggle with a malignant brain tumor on Aug. 25, did not leave us with an easy life to decipher.

On one hand we have to consider the man’s work. The “Lion” of the Senate for more than 40 years, Ted Kennedy was a standard for pragmatic liberalism. He was a champion of civil rights, health care, immigration, education, labor rights and more.

CHC women end first week at 1-1

After launching their 2009 soccer season with an 8-0 victory at Lincoln University last Thursday, the Chestnut Hill College women wound up on the other end of a lopsided score on Sunday afternoon, dropping their home opener to the Warriors of East Stroudsburg University, 5-0.

The host Griffins hung with their guests for about the first quarter of Sunday’s game, but the visitors gained a 2-0 foothold by halftime, then dispelled any thoughts of a CHC comeback by pounding in a pair of goals in the first minute of the second period. Now 1-1 overall, Chestnut Hill hopes to rebound in this week’s Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference opener against nearby Philadelphia University.
