To the Editor:
Pearl one about Solar Panels: The number that matters is dollar per kilowatt (1,000 watts) of electricity generated, installed and approved/inspected by Chatham County. I have had four companies bid on installing at my house over the past two years since rebuilding after a fire. The price has been all over the place, and now you should look for the turnkey price of $2,000 per kilowatt or less.
Pearl two: hot weather football practice — prevent heat stroke! Most high schools don’t have air-conditioned practice facilities, so have a garden hose handy. If any concerns, hose the player down right away. I recommend giving players free access to multiple on and off valves whenever they wish. They are wet with sweat already, but a hose in the face and inside the jersey and pants of the player will help them prevent heat stroke and recover energy faster. A tarp on the ground will also help prevent a mud puddle.
