SOLARIZE TYBEE SPREADS TO ALL OF CHATHAM COUNTY
NOW THRU mid April

THE SOLARIZE TYBEE IS GOING ON NOW AND APPLIES TO ALL OF CHATHAM COUNTY.  ENROLL TODAY FOR A FREE ASSESSMENT OF YOUR PROPERTY. 
With the Solarize Tybee program, the more people who sign up, the cheaper the solar panels get for everyone who wants them in Chatham County.
A little more than a week into enrollment, 174 people had expressed interest, prompting organizer Paul Wolff to predict that the price will drop significantly by the end of enrollment in mid-April.   Solar energy is a clean alternative fuel source but its high price tag makes it nearly impossible for many people in Chatham County to afford, until now.   In February, the Solarize Tybee program will officially begin and now, because of the enormous number of positive responses organizers have received, it's being expanded beyond Tybee Island to the entire county.   "Everyone in Chatham County, whether it's a governmental entity, a business or a resident, can put solar panels on it's rooftop and save money through this program," said Tybee Councilman, Paul Wolff.   Wolff is the brains behind the operation, which works like this:  Instead of purchasing an expensive unit alone, Solarize Tybee pools everyone's funds together, and gets a wholesale price instead.  "We're probably going to get between a 15-30% discount for anyone who signs up," said Wolff.  He estimates a 5 kilowatt system which would typically cost between $13-15,000 dollars to install, will likely cost less than $10,000.  Once you sign up you are not committed to using the program; however, you will get a free assessment to determine if your site is a good candidate for solar.  To further incentivize participation, Hannah Solar has offered to donate to local nonprofits up to five solar arrays, a total of 35 kilowatts of solar in all. The donations kick in as community participation reaches various tiered levels. Tybee’s Community Resource Committee is still deciding how to choose the recipients, though consideration will be given to the recommendations of those signing contracts, Wolff said.

A native of Sewanee, Tennessee, Dana Richardson holds a BFA in painting and a MAT from the Savannah College of Art and Design and currently teaches art at Savannah Christian. She spent a year at the plein air Marchutz School of Painting in Aix-en-Provence, situated a few miles from Cezanne’s studio. Dana received a fellowship from the Vermont Studio Center and has studied landscape at the Art Student’s League in New York and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. Dana’s pieces are small-scale cityscapes in oil, collage and mixed media “documenting the experience of being in Savannah.” She says, “I always paint outside, either setting my easel up on the sidewalk or in the bed of my truck. Over time I have a chronicle of the changes in the scene; The seasons change, the light moves, things are torn down and built.” Long-time Savannahian Dicky Stone transforms indigenous wood such as pecan, sycamore and maple into decorative pieces of sculpture. He was one of 30 artists selected to showcase work in the AltCraft category of the prestigious American Craft Council Show in 2011. A self-taught wood carver and turner, Dicky says, “I am coming late in life to what makes my heart sing. My woodwork is what I hope to do until the eyes no longer see, the hands no longer obey and the mind no longer has imagination.”

The show will hang through June 30, 2015 and, as always, a portion of sales will benefit the Daily Impact Fund, helping provide extra patient services not covered by Medicare or insurances.

CPR SEEKS HELP FOR HEARTWORM POSITIVE DOGS
TFN

COASTAL PET RESCUE IS SEEKING DONATIONS FOR HEARTWORM POSITIVE DOG TREATMENTS.  It's been a long year for Coastal Pet Rescue, and with 99 canine intakes this year,   it's only going to be longer.  So far, Coastal Pet Rescue has treated five canines for heartworms, and two more are still awaiting their turn, but help is urgently needed to fund the medical care.  Although heartworms are preventable thanks to monthly medications, many of the dogs Coastal Pet Rescue rescues have not been kept current -  If ever at all - on the prevention, and thus need the expensive treatments.  Treatments can run $600 to $1200 depending upon the severity of the infestation, and since Coastal Pet Rescue does not believe in passing on the excessive medical bills for adopters and instead charges only a flat $150 adoption fee, there's a lot left to cover.  Donations may be made online at coastalpetrescue.org/donate or by mail to Coastal Pet Rescue, PO Box  30462, Savannah, GA 31410.

THE CITY OF SAVANNAH ANNOUNCES A NEW SYSTEM FOR BULK COLLECTION.  CITIZENS MAY SCHEDULE THEIR BULK COLLECTION BY CALLING 311.  Residents will still have a scheduled week each month to receive bulk item collection with no additional charge, but collection will no longer be automatic.

Any items placed out off-schedule will also be removed for a fee. Sanitation calendar magnets were distributed to residents at the start of the year. The calendars can also be downloaded online at savannahga.gov/sanitation.  Bulk item collection is a continued service offered by City of Savannah Sanitation to retrieve and dispose of large items placed out for collection by residents during a one-week period each month. Bulk items include most large household goods, including discarded furniture and appliances. Items that will NOT be collected during bulk item pickup include yard waste, construction material, hazardous materials and liquid waste.
