"1 am particularly delighted
with my appointment to the
Agriculture Committee. There are
many farmers in my district.
"Fanner* are facing really dif
ficult docs. With today's high cost
of producing crops, the price of
commodities staying flat or
decreasing and with high interest
rates, fanners are hurting all over
North Carolina. They are
vulnerable. I am hoping that the
Senate Agriculture Committee can
offer some assistance to the
farmers or our state," Parnell
"Another major need in my
district is for an improved educa
tional system. Many of the educa

the Appropriations Committee
because they will require funding. I
am particularly interested in the
proposal to assure equal education
in every school in this state. This
proposal would require that every
student graduating from high
school would have access to an
equal number of courses as each
student in other pans of our state.

Parnell said he is also pleased

Gutters need care to maintain house's drainage system
In last week's article we dis
cussed keeping a check on your
home's condition. Here are some
other important things to check:
Gutters aad Downspouts
Gutters and downspouts are
your home's drainage system.
They channel water away from
side walls and masonry where it
can do damage. Here are a few
guidelines for keeping your gutters
-Clean gutters twice a year - in
autumn after the leaves have
fallen, and in spring after seed
pods and leaf buds have dropped.
-Use wire leaf strainers and
guards to keep leaves out of down
spouts and gutters.
Look for leaks. Hose- down the
close attention to joints and seams.
-Check alignments - gutters
should slope 1/8 inch for each foot
of their length.
-When replacing gutters and
downspouts, choose materials with
proven durability records.
Aluminum and plastic gutters, for
example, are corrosion resistant
and because of their light weight,
are easy to install.
Caalkiag - A Chink In Time

important part of your home's ex
terior defense system.
It helps keep your home air- and
water-tight and energy efficient.

home audit, first check that every
point that needs caulking has it; se
caulking is replaced. Here's where
-Around all roof flashing,
especially where the chimney meets
the roof and sidewalls and where
dormers meet roof shingles.
-Where masonry steps, porches
or patios meet the body of the
-At all corners formed by siding.
-Where window or door frames
meet the siding.
-Where pipes or electrical con
duits enter the house.
?Where the siding meets the
