Unless properly con- stzucted, furr downs could be wasting valuable energy and money in your home. Here's how: hat's all there is to it. ealing and insulating len fia'r downs will save valuable energy and money. When uninsulated furr downs on interior walls are left open.., hot and cold air seeps down into the house from the attic and makes your heating and air conditioning work harder to keep you comfortable, So, when this happens, your home wastes valuable energy.., and moneyyear'round. You can stop most of this waste and the cost for materials is usually small. Open furr down areas should be sealed off from the attic by using plywood or sheetrock. Then, add insulation on top of the "capped" furr down to keep hot and cold air from getting in and out of your home. ELECTRIC SERVICE Ilmllmll l leave Sunday, June 19 and return on Sat. June 25.

MEYER Chiropractor The Perkins Journal Thursday, June 16, 1977-7 Gov. Boren wants people to decide Excerpts from Governor David Baron's address to the people expresses his feelings about a "very serious prob- lem for our state." He sees a need for the government to be closer to the people and that the state is moving toward a full-time profes- sional Legislature which is considering more and more laws. If the people wish to vote on this issue the Governor says the people must speak out. "Let your elected representatives know how you feel" about the fol- lowing situation. "Under our Constitution, the Legislature may be called into Special Session by the Governor if it does not complete its work within the constitutional limit. On Thursday, I issued an Executive Order calling the Legislature back into ses- sion, beginning at noon Monday, June 13, to finish the work which was left undone. A strong bill to reform the unemployment compensa- tion system in this state was passed. We have said to those genuinely unemploy- ed, "the state is going to provide adequate benefits and protect your reserve funds." To those who simply do not want to work we have said something blunt and refreshing, "if you are just too lazy to work, don't expect the taxpayers to foot the bill for you." A Sunset Bill, as strong as any in the United States was passed. This bill presents an opportunity and a challenge to future sessions of the Leg- islature to use its review mechanism to streamline and modernize some state agencies and abolish un- needed ones. The Sunset Bill would do away with state agencies that cannot justify themselves and their pro- grams to you the taxpayers.  In the area of Workers' Compensation, a major step toward reform was taken. As with any comprehensive bill, it is not perfect, but it is an important step in the right direction. For too many years this system, very unfair to both the injured worker and the employer, has cried out for reform. We have started the process of cleaning up the system this year. Definite moves toward reform of the auto tax system have been accomplished. A bill to encourage the use of solar energy, through tax incentives, has been passed. More residency positions "-wer established for medical schooTgradates keeping our doctors here in Oklahoma where they are needed in so I i I many areas. Educational television will be brought to areas of the state not now re- ceiving it. Future genera- tions will enjoy the benefits of an expanded trails pro- gram and natural heritage inventory which have been started this year. We have again responded to the need for better law enforcement with significant increases in funding for the Highway Patrol, Bureau of Narcotics, and the O.S.B.I. Unfortunately, the list of things undone is also signifi. cant. Although the Legisla- ture has been meeting since January, 56 per cent of the funds needed for vital governmental services were not acted upon when the Legislature adjourned. I have called the Legisla. ture back in order to meet the pressing needs in such areas as funding our public schools, the highway pro- gram, and corrections. The Legislature, in addition, must still act on funding the Tax Commission, the Tourism and Recreation De- partment, the Historical Society and" our District Courts. I am very concerned about this trend toward longer and longer sessions and a full- time Legisla(ure. The amount of time that the Legislature meets has gone up by 50 per cent in the first ten years under annual sessions. In recent years, the trend has been even strong- er.
