Light-emitting diode holi- day lights, while somewhat more expensive to purchase than regu- lar mini-lights and other tradi- tional bulbs, use a fraction of the energy.

If 10,000 PNM customers make the switch from traditional holi- day lighting to LEDs*, it would reduce PNM's carbon dioxide emissions'by 5.8 million pounds, the equivalent of taking 510 cars ]ng the risk of fire - and last sig- off the road or planting 68,000 Foster,. adoptive parents needed in New Mexico Submitted by CYFD Becoming a foster or adop- two parent can make a huge dif- ference in the life of a child• Join us for an information meeting to be held this month of February in your area.

Other Holiday Lighting Tips • To maximize holiday lighting savings, use timers to limit light displays to no more than six evening hours a day. Leaving lights on 24 hours a day will quadruple your energy costs - and create four times the pollu- tion. • While sprucing up or deco- rating your home for holiday en- tertaining, consider switching out traditional light bulbs in your home for compact fluorescent bulbs. Replacing just 10 bulbs could shave as much as $41 off annual energy bills. PNM-spon- sored rebates for CFLS are avail- able at a variety of local retailers• Visit to learn more about lSNM energy- ,saving programs, Senior Citizens Lunch Menu Monday, December 14 Hamburger Stroganoff Egg Noodles Spinach Cauliflower & Cheese Cottage Cheese/Pears Tuesday, December 15 Ham & Cheese Sandwich- Lettuce/Tomato/Onions Mixed Vegetables/Margarine Mandarin Oranges Wednesday, December 16 Meatloaf ..
