Did you know that bath fixtures made before 1992 can waste up to 3 gallons of water each minute you spend in the shower? The shower and the toilet are the two areas in the bathroom where you can keep your money from going down the drain! Take an empty gallon pale and turn your shower on full blast. Wait 2 minutes and check the pale. If it's overflowing you're wasting water! Change the shower head to a low flow model. Shower heads start at about $10.00 and changing it is a very simple task.Plumbing leaks account for about 15% of water usage. It's a good idea to check your toilet for leaks. Here's how: Lift the tank cover and drop about 5-10 drops of food coloring into the tank. Now don't flush yet! Wait about 15 minutes, lift the toilet seat and check the water color. A leaky toilet will...

Remember when you were a kid and your mom always yelled, "Are you still in the shower? You're wasting water."? Well not only were sending gallons down the drain but spending hard earned cash heating more water. Ready-Set-Go ... Get a Timer: Use a shower timer and try to keep your shower limited to below five minutes, the shorter the better – sometimes just being aware of how long you have been in the shower will help you keep your shower time shorter. This may be very difficult, especially since we Americans average close to ten minutes, but any time that you can trim off will help. Don't Be a Dope When You Soap: Turn the water off when you soap up! While you are shampooing your hair or soaping your body, you do'nt need the water running down the drain. In fact, it is almost easier if t...

What factors will you consider in selecting, locating, and installing windows in your new home? When selecting windows you should choose those with low potential for condensation. For best results in Mississippi, windows must have a U value less than or equal to 0.50 and a solar heat gain factor (SHGF) less than or equal to 0.40, or must be Energy Star® or NFRC labeled. The location of windows in your new home is also important. Daylighting is a technique of using natural light from the sun and the sky and incorporating it into your home via the windows. Using daylight is free and efficient, which translates to lower energy consumption and utility savings. When using daylighting, be mindful of the seasons. In the summer, the sun’s rays are more intense. To avoid over-heating, window cov...

  When you price your home above its market value, fewer buyers will show interest in your property. When you price your home below market value, you increase the number of interested buyers. In the end, the price you set and the interest you create should reflect your selling goals. What is a Comparative Market Analysis?  A CMA can vary from a two page list of comparable home sales to a 50-page comprehensive guide.  A Standard CMA report will include: Active Listings:  Active listings are homes currently for sale. These listings matter only to the extent that they are your competition for buyers. They are not indicative of market value because sellers can ask whatever they want for their home. It doesn't mean any of the prices are realistic. The offered sales prices do not reflect mark...

We are so thankful to have the opportunity to live in the safest city in Mississipp, Madison the Cityi!  This is attributed to a wonderful task force of dedicated police officers and city officials that care about what they do with a passion.  To show our thanks to these fine men and women my local church, Parkway Pentecostal Church, put on a law enforcement appreciation lunch! We had a wonderful turnout of well over 100 law enforcement personnel. I think that was in part by having four cooks from, Jerry's fishouse, that attend our church to cook over 100 pounds of catfish filet! It was so yummy!  While there I was able to talk to some of the officers, and I didn't realize that each applicant has to have 60 hours of college credit and some were even working toward there masters degree....

Two Madison County, MS cities are considering swapping out their five-day work week for four-day work week to combat high energy prices. City officials in Ridgeland, MS and Canton, MS said that shortening the work week in favor of 10-hour days and three-day weekends, as Southaven and Pearl have done, is an option on the table. "We have department heads looking at how this might work for us," Ridgeland, MS Mayor Gene McGee said. "We will not do it as a knee jerk reaction if it will not save money for the city as well as employees. We also have to be sure (not to) compromise the services to our citizens." These talks come after Ridgeland, MS city officials appropriated nearly $200,000 in gas money from its budget in recent weeks to bail out the Police Department, Public Works and Recreati...

After many long months of debate over Madison 's annexation, the city almost doubled its size over the weekend by adding 13.2 miles around the city limits.  There are an estimated 2,000 plus single family homes added, making a total of almost 10,000 new Madison residents.  Windsor Hills, Ingleside, Annandale , Fairfield , and Reunion are all among the annexed subdivisions. There were a few residents that fought against the annexation by taking their effort to court, but the state Supreme Court ruled in favor of the city proceeding with the annexation in April. Madison has always been known for its southern hospitality and small town atmosphere.  The city will still remain a smaller town near Jackson , Mississippi where there are bigger city amenities.  Madison is also an international g...
