Ms. Iris Fisher talks with a neighbor about energy efficient CFL light bulbs.

More than seventy residents came to the Northeast Central Durham and Clean Energy Durham energy fair and kickball game last Saturday at the Holton Career and Resource Center. Neighborhood volunteers set up information tables and talked with their neighbors about home energy efficiency.

After the energy fair, community and City representatives squared off in the annual kickball game pitting the “Kill-A-Watts” against the “Bust-A-Therms.” Players ranging in age from 10 to 60 turned out with great bravado to proclaim their kicking superiority and to demonstrate their kickball prowess. This year the Bust-A-Therms pounced the Kill-A-Watts in a 14-7 victory. After the game, Cpt. Winslow Forbes, the organizer of the police participants and game officiator, said he had a good time and that the game was a lot of fun. He said he would like to see it become an annual event.

Ms. Iris Fisher, Clean Energy Durham volunteer and Old Five Points resident, said that the game was a great time for the youth to see that the police are friendly and that they like to have fun. She said the youth often see the police in their role as law enforcers and never see their fun side.
