Freedom Of Choices

When the list of ways to save energy seems so long it�s more a burden than a blessing, a guide can get you started

Freedom of choice lives on many of our lists of what we�ll give thanks for this month.

But from the grocery store to the Internet, sometimes the world seems to offer too many choices.

Overabundance of choice is what energy efficiency has in common with the dozens of different mustards lining the supermarket shelves or the tens of thousands of options a Google search will list on your computer screen.

To help you figure out the best way to save energy, you�ll find several pages of this month�s magazine devoted to the Kentucky Living 2009 Energy Guide.

In many ways energy efficiency seems like a no-brainer. It saves money, makes our economy and society more productive, and helps the environment.

But where to start?

The Energy Guide shows you where to begin. Whether you want to start with the step that will save the most energy in your house, or use the most inexpensive technique, or take the quickest and easiest method, the guide�s checklists and descriptions will help you make up your mind.

It�s your choice.

Military pioneer
It�s fitting that Veterans Day and Thanksgiving fall in the same month.

In “She’s in the Army Now,” many of you will find nostalgia. Younger readers will find history in the story of Eileen Lentz�s WWII military service.

In some ways Eileen�s experience in the newly created Women�s Army Corps seems like an unnecessarily odd way to allow women into the military.

But her service shows how women have long been changing tradition in order to contribute to their country.

Even after the military, she continued to blaze a trail for women by using the GI Bill to become one of the few women going to school to earn a law degree.

Eileen Lentz ranks among those we can give thanks to for our freedom of choice.
