If you are willing, please turn on your porch lights at night. One resident on Enterprise, and I am sure there may be more, leaves the house to go to work at 11:30 PM. Many times I am just getting home from work then. There are only three street lights on our street area, and it is quite dark, so this would help. It is also known that lighting helps prevent crime, so a good thing for you as well. This was a direct request about lighting from a neighbor, so see if you can help. With Daylight Savings Time ending on Sunday, Nov. 7, this becomes even more important. Thanks for anything you can do. Let's light up the streets!

At the Public Safety meeting on Wednesday Kristin Runyon stressed the value of keeping a porch light on and mentioned the cost:
Approximately $1.00 a month for all night every night for a 60 watt incandescent. Around $5.00 a month for all night every night for a dual flood light. Those number go down dramatically if you install the newer fluorescent bulbs. The chart is on the RG&E website if you want specifics.

Morning Mark, The all night burning of porch lights was traditionally a National Night Out event. Blue lights, donated by RG & E, were passed out at the picnic after the motorcade. My house looks like a holiday house year round! The squirrels have fun at night with the motion sensor lights attached to the back of the house and the garage. Keeping encouraging 'All Night Lights'!! Burglars HATE lights as do loiterers.............
