The topic, grade level, and area of the country in which presentations are made is noted by the volunteer on the recruitment form. CSW compiles the information and distributes the resource list to each school in the County. The individual teachers mange the actual scheduling and contact the volunteer direcdy. The observance of this special month began here in Sonoma County as a way of introducing school children to the many and varied contributions women have made and continue to make toward the growth and development of this country. This concept, which has been expanded to celebrate the entire month of March, has become a national observance; bringing children a more realistic under- standing of our contemporary soci- ety and the numerous options now available for women, as well as the opportunity to "write women back into history". To become a Community Re- source Woman, please call 527-2161 or stop by the CSW office for a recruitment form. The office is located at 2200 Country Center Dr., Suite F., Santa Rosa.

By now, you have undoubtedly been touched in one way or another by the record cold weather. With temperatures dropping to all-time lows, energy use has jumped to all-time highs. And that means your energy bill will go up. COLD WEATHER HAS CREATED RECORD DEMAND FOR ENERGY During the unusually cold month of December, the average home in PG&E's service territory nearly doubled its typical monthly use of natural gas. The amount of gas used by all customers on December 21 set a new record. The holiday season always raises electric use, and the peak electric demand on December 20 also set an all-time winter high. This additional winter use will be reflected in your PG&E bill, and you should be prepared to see a large increase. The exact amount will depend on how much gas and electricity you used. PG&E CAN HELP EASE THE FINANCIAL IMPACT ON YOUR BILL PG&E can help you meet the finandal burdens of this unusually harsh winter. From now until March 15, 1991, residential customers may extend the payments of their winter bills up to six months. By participating in this plan, you can pay half the bill now and take as long as six months to pay the balance, interest-free, along with your regular monthly charges. This offer is good through March 15. Details will be explained in the Winter Bill Stretch insert in your next bill, along with a coupon for your convenience in signing up. If you have already received a bill without the Stretch insert, please call your local PG&E office for information. The telephone number is on your bill. PG&E CAN HELP IN OTHER WAYS, TOO PG&E offers additional programs for customers with  needs- For customers with a finandal emergency or hardship, a one-time grant of assistance is available from REACH. REACH is funded by PG&E shareholders and voluntary contributions by cus- tomers and employees. Call either PG&E or the Salvation Army for information. For low-income customers, the Low-Income Rate Assistance Program (LIRA)provides a 15% discount on every bill. For customers with medical disabilities, additional quantities of energy are available at lower baseline rates. For customers who can be flexible on when they use energy, Time-of-Use rates can save money. HERE'S HOW YOU CAN REDUCE YOUR USAGE AND LOWER YOUR FUTURE BILLS Winter is still with us and there is more cold weather ahead. But there might be some things you can do to save money in the immediate future. Keeping your thermostat no higher than 68 degrees during the day, then setting it back to 55 degrees or off at night, can save as much as 20%. Ceiling insulation, if you have none, can cut heating costs by 25%. Weatherstripping doors and windows and wrapping insulation around pipes and ducts can save an additional 10%. Ask your local PG&E office for a Do-It-Yourself Home Energy Survey. Fill it out and return it to PG&E, and a customized report will be sent to you showing exactly where you can save energy and money., Through these programs and others, PG&E can help you reduce the cost of high energy use driven by extreme cold, and help make your energy use more efficient year-round.
