A pool heater lets you use your pool more often and more comfortably. Solar energy is the most cost-effec- tive and environmentally con- scious way to warm the water. A solar heating sys- tem means no toxic green- house gas emissions. A heater means pool par- ties even when the weather's cool. It means you can swim for exercise daily or just relax even when the day's warmth is not at its peak. Swimming is great exercise, improving cardiovascular conditioning, muscle strength, endurance, posture and flexibility. "! ' ''>:\>J ' .... :;  i - ;i ..:/! Here's a bright idea: Heat your home pool th free energy from the sun. The solar system uses the filtration pump to circulate water through a solar col- lector. It's warmed by the sun and sent back to the pool. A result of over 30 years of Aquatherm Industries' expe- rience, the Ecolite Syste uses up to 85 percent recycled material. Installation costs are comparable to fossil fuel heaters but zero operating costs means the system can pay for itself in a couple of years. It's available from pool supply stores and solar heat- ing contractors. Learn more at www.ecotite solar.com or 1 (800) 535-6307. IS YOUR CAR READY FOR COLD WEATHER??

Cumming Man Leads 4-H Group Marissa Kephart Take time to visit the 4- H Camera Corps' exhibi- tion, "Rural Iowa Architec- ture." Fifty photos of ru- ral Iowa architecture taken by 4-H youth are on dis- play at the St. Mark Lutheran Church gallery in West Des Moines. Over 800 photos were submit- ted by participants. The photography of Warrer County 4-Her, Marissa Kephart of Carlisle, daughter of Michael and Marsha Kephart, is on dis- play. Some of her photos were selected for the 2012 Pioneer calendar. The free exhibit is Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. through November 8. Photographer Tim Florer, Cumming, led the group of 68 Camera Corps participants. The photog- raphers include 4-H mem- bers in- grades four through 12 from Iowa, Kansas and Arkansas. "Usually, we see 4-H photos only at the Iowa State Fair," said Mitchell Hoyer, 4-H Youth Devel- opment program special- ist with Iowa State Univer- sity Extension and Out- reach. "We did something different this year with Tim's gallery connections. We wanted to expose youth to a different aspect of the photography world." Thirty-six students' photos are featured in this exhibit. Matthew Blink, of Marshall County, received the Director's Choice Award; Abigail Parker, of Wright County, received the Media Choice Award; and Jacob Henderson, of Muscatine County, re- ceived the People's Choice Award. Each winner re- ceived a special ribbofi to display with his or her photo and a T3 Canon camera provided by Canon and the H. B. Leiserowitz Co. of Des 19Ioines. "Photography is one of the largest project areas in 4-H in Iowa," Hoyer said. "We're trying to extend students" pho- tography skills and chal- lenge them to take photos of unique subjects through the Camera Corps." The Iowa 4-H Camera Corps was founded in 2004. Nationwide Agri-business, with assistance from pho- tographer Tim Florer, spon- sors the 4-H Camera Corps project to give interested 4- H members a way to ex- pand their photography skills. Through the "Rural Iowa Architecre" project, the 4-Hers developed great photos and learned about the history of architecture in rural Iowa.
