"A superinsulated house incorpo- rates large amounts of insulation, tight construction and other energy-conserv- ing features to minimize heat loss and gain," said Doug Walter, president of Kansas Building Science Institute, Manhattan. "It's so efficient that solar gain through sour h-faci ng windows and heat generated by appliances can supply much of the needed heat in winter. Heating costs may be less than $100 per year," he said. Superinsulated homes require spe- cial construction to reduce air infiltra- tion and to accommodate the extra insulation, up to 13 inches in walls and 18 to 20 inches in the ceiling. These homes are so tightly con- structed that they require mechanical ventilation to bring in fresh air for occupants. Walter said. To reduce the cost of conditioning the fresh air, a heat-recovery ventilator often is used to pre-heat the incoming air with the heat from the exhaust air.

Groups of counties share other health consultants. In sharing other information about the health department, Woerner said that home health care, helping to keep people in their own homes as long as safely possible, is the major part of their work. Medicare has stringent requirements for helping individuals with home health needs and does not provide aid to the present clients. Even the Area Agency on Aging funds have been frozen. Another program Woerner ex- plained is the Women, Infants and Children, a nutrition program that is- sues vouchers for specific food and teaches good nutrition. Theimmunization program is ham- pered by lack of vaccines. Can Be Healthy is a program providing assess- ments for families. Other services provided by the de- partment include renting car seats and booster seats for children and satellite clinics in the various communities. Present challenges are Kansas Inte- grated Public Health, a technology pro- gram which tracks immunizations; Health Affordability Insurance and Privacy Act, a federally mandated pro- gram that must be in place by October for the department to be eligible for possible Medicare reimbursements; a bioterrorism plan which must be in place by late June. Terry Mayhew conducted the busi- ness meeting.

Turf for the baseball field is ready as soon as weather warms. Members are to assist with the concessions dur- ing summer ball games. A request for prizes for readers in accelerated reading at RES was pre- sented. The Chamber approved pur- chasing two softballs and two base- balls for them. Van Taylor and John Kemmerer, representing USD 279 Board of Edu- cation, presented a plan for an Educa- tional Foundation to be established for the district. Returns from such a fund would supplement programs for the local district. A board would adminis- ter the funds. Patrons contributing to the Educational Foundation would have the privilege of selecting the use of their contributions, which are tax de- ductible. Lincoln District No. 298 has such a foundation. The program com- mittee was instructed to obtain a speaker for the September meeting, if possible. May 11 is awards banquet at the community center. The next regular meeting for the Chamber is Sept. 9. Danyel Davis, White Rock, was honorable mention in the I A Salina Journal all-area team. Moran encourages ethanol expansion Congressman Jerry Moran Mon- day announced that he has introduced legislation to extend and expand a pro- gram that provides incentives to small Kansas producers of ethanol and biodiesel. The program, operated through the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA), encourages production of ethanol by providi!ag financial assis- tance to ethanol and biodiesel facili- ties. "Five ethanol plants are now pro- ducing ethanol in Kansas, with at least six more in the building or planning stage," Moran said. "There is great potential for the Kansas economy and for Kansas farmers by expanding etha- nol and other bioenergy products." The bill would allow the USDA to continue providing payments to eli- gible biofuel companies that add value to agriculture commodities by produc- ing ethanol and biodiesel. Under the program, producers using barley, corn, grain sorghum, wheat, soybeans and other commodities for bioenergy will receive payments based on their in- creased production. Payments will be structured to encourage participation of small producers. Moran's bill complements an agree- ment reached by U.S. senate leaders to move forward with legislation that would nearly triple the amount of etha- nol used in gasoline. The Senate agree- ment, pat of an comprehensive energy bill, would require refiners to use at least five billion gallons of ethanol or other biofuel nation wide by 2012. "Biofuels represent a win-win situ- ation. Not only is this good for the economy and good for farmers, in- creased ethanol and biofuel use is good for the environment," Moran said. "Ethanol-blended fuel does not pose a risk to our groundwater, as other addi- tives do. This legislation would help biofuel producers meet the growing demand for this renewable domestic fuel."
