I’m proud to be a sponsor of this year’s Vatten Paddlar canoe and kayak race, which will be held July 6 on the Eau Claire Chain of Lakes in Barnes, Wisconsin. I’m grateful for this opportunity to support our local community, and also to spread the word about the natural beauty of the lakes and rivers in this part of northwest Wisconsin.
The race has two events, a 10 mile race and a 5 mile race—plus various divisions within each race. There are prizes in each division, plus lots of door prizes. To learn more about the race, visit www.vattenpaddlar.com.

For now, here’s one of my favorites, the boating channel from Middle Eau Claire Lake to Lower Eau Claire Lake:
We all think differently. The property that’s perfect for you might not be perfect for me or for anyone else.
Those three most important items might be the type or size of lake, the perfect swimming beach, other recreation activities, the cabin style that best fits your lifestyle, the number of bedrooms, the garage size, distance from home, and certainly your budget.
Make a list of what’s most important. Trade-offs may be necessary within a particular price range. If you find the cabin and lake of your dreams, what are you willing to trade off in your price range? Keep in mind that even if money is no object, you’ll still need to make choices and trade-offs. For example: a quiet lake that’s good for paddling and wildlife watching may not be the type lake good for waterskiing and jetskiing. It’s tough to find both in the same lake.

The U.S. Department of Energy lists several key features of an energy efficient home. Home sellers, be sure to highlight these features to attract buyers. The infographic at the left (courtesy of National Association of Realtors) shows how buyers rate the importance of green and energy efficient homes.
Appliances and electronics – shop for appliances with the Energy Star logo. Energy Star brand offers a higher energy efficiency rating than the government standard.
2. Insulation and heating/cooling temperature control. The Department of Energy has determined that 56% of home energy costs go to heating and cooling. Improving the insulation in your home and installing a programmable thermostat can be an energy cost saving.
3. Water heater. Keeping the water heater in good working order, or replacing with an energy efficient model can have a positive impact on your utility bills.
