What’s Happening

The Group for Apnea Sleep Problems will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Barton Hospital board room.

Do you snore? Do you find it difficult to stay awake during your everyday routine? Do you wake up with headaches? If so, you could be suffering from sleep apnea. If so, you are encouraged to join the Barton Sleep Studies department for their G.A.S.P. meeting. The meeting will include an overview of sleep apnea and will explain what sleep apnea is, signs and symptoms, treatments, possible complications during any surgery as well as insurance coverage facts.

For more information contact the Barton Sleep Studies Laboratory at (530) 543-5895 or the Barton Health Resource Center at (530) 543-5537.

Sign up for Pop Warner Football

The South Tahoe Pop Warner Football and Cheer Association will conduct free physicals for football players and cheerleaders for the 2005 season from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday at Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic, Inc., 1139 Third Street. All players and cheerleaders must have a current 2005 physical which states they are able to play football or cheer.

We will also continue to take football sign-ups for players 5 to 15 years old. Only returning cheerleaders not requiring new uniforms can still sign up. For the possibility of signing up a new cheerleader with a loaner uniform, or late order uniform (uniform not guaranteed for the first couple of games), contact Christey Weinmeister at (530) 544-1567.

We have a new division this year called “Tiney Mites” for children ages 5 to 7 years old. There will be a cheer clinic from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 30 and 31. A mandatory parents meeting and welcome-back pizza party is scheduled from 4 to 6 p.m. July 31. The first day of practice and mandatory conditioning will take place from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Aug. 1 at the South Tahoe High School Field of Dreams.

Green Party to meet Thursday

The Green Party of El Dorado County will meet at 7 p.m. Thursday at the El Dorado County Library, 345 Fair Lane in Placerville. The topic will be “Is Solar Energy Right for You?” Ways to reduce energy costs at home will be discussed.

Thanks to generous tax credits, rebates and historic low-interest rates, it is possible to finance installation and operation of a solar electric generating system for the same price as what you are paying for your monthly electric bill. It is an incredible opportunity to “lock in” almost free electricity. Come learn the details from our speaker from Plan It Solar of Grass Valley, Calif. Bring two months of utility bills to help understand how it will work for your family. A workshop to build your own bread-box solar water heater is planned. Be sure to sign up for that.

Energy is taking a bigger bite out of everyone’s budget. Oil has topped $60 per barrel. Global oil demand is up 3 to 5 percent this year, while oil discovery is almost flat. This assures an oncoming energy crisis demand – not politics. This event, known as “Peak Oil” is the topic of the Sept. 8 meeting.
