As the recession hit Kansas City, it seemed that might have stayed a dream, as her family was hit hard by the economic downturn. She never gave up hope in the one thing she believed would help her escape a neighborhood that tried to pull her away from education and her goals. I grew up in a challenging neighborhood. It wasn t uncommon to see young boys looking like gangsters, hanging out in the neighborhood. I decided to become a role model for my brothers. I didn t want to see them join the gang, I wanted to show them that I could go to college and they could too, she said. Ortiz became a protector of her brothers encouraging them to stay away from the influence of gangs and to stay in school and set goals for their life.

Her college plans are now a reality for the young Ortiz as she is one of the recipients of the Dr. Agapito Mendoza Scholarship. The scholarship award will help her pay college tuition making it possible for her to attend the University of Missouri at Kansas City. Ortiz is a freshman and wants to become a Mechanical Engineer when she graduates. I am honored to receive this award because it means getting an education for me. Without this scholarship, it would have been very difficult for me to go to college. My family is really economically challenged right now and without the Agapito Ella es la primera en su familia en asistir a la universidad y disfruta el hecho de haberse convertido en un ejemplo positivo para sus hermanos. Los planes universitarios son ahora una realidad para la joven Ortiz ya que ella es una de quienes recibieron la Beca Dr. Agapito Mendoza. La beca la ayudará a pagar su enrolamiento haciendo posible para ella asistir a la Universidad de Missouri en Kansas City. Ortiz es una estudiante de primer año y quiere convertirse en ingeniera mecánica cuando se gradúe. Me siento honrada de recibir este premio puesto que significa Mendoza Scholarship I would not be here, she said. Ortiz shared her story to a packed audience last week at the Agapito Mendoza Scholarship breakfast on the campus of UMKC. The annual event is a key fundraising tool set up in memory of Dr. Agapito Mendoza who was Director of Affirmative Action at the University and whose reach and interests extended beyond the university to the greater community. Mendoza served on a variety of boards including Guadalupe Center. UMKC is working hard to attract minority students to the local campus and they hope to increase the number of scholarships they can make available to students. This scholarship (Mendoza Scholarship) is important because the more people we can get here and the more funds we can que obtendré una educación. Sin la beca, me habría sido muy difícil asistir a la universidad. En estos momentos mi familia está verdaderamente en apuros económicos y sin la Beca Dr. Agapito Mendoza no estaría aquí, dijo ella. raise will increase the number of scholarships that we can make available to Hispanic students so that we can get them to attend here at UMKC, said Leo Morton UMKC Chancellor. Irene Mendoza, widow of Agapito, shared with the audience that her cousin Sandra Rascon once said, Education was a gift that Dr. Agapito Mendoza wanted Hispanic students to receive and throughout his years of teaching he instilled in them a thirst for knowledge. He continued despite all his health problems to educate students. Even in his last days on this earth, he still acknowledged the great importance of minorities in continuing their education. Ortiz wishes that she would have had the chance to meet Mendoza. As I stand here today and look at his picture, he looks so passionate for what he did and he looks like he really wanted to help students. He is helping students even now because of this UMKC Agapito Mendoza Scholarship, she said. Mendoza was a key figure in El Legado de Mendoza Ayuda a Estudiantes a Asistir a la Universidad Hispanic Heritage Month features panel discussion at the Kansas City Public Library Being Latino in America Broadcast journalist Chris Hernandez joins writers Angela Cervantes and Gustavo Aybar at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 8 at the Plaza Branch, 4801 Main St. for Being Latino in America: Our Present and Future, a panel discussion designed to tell the diverse stories of a rich culture. Sylvia Maria Gross of KCUR will moderate. The panelists will discuss issues ranging from political influence on elections to societal stereotypes to whether English should be the only language spoken in classrooms. With the first Latina judge seated on the highest court this year, the future looks bright for Latinos, said Cervantes, but we still have a long way to go. I look forward to this panel serving as a discussion starter and exploration. Hernandez is the political and City Hall reporter for NBC Action News. He has covered political campaigns for almost two decades. Cervantes earned her B.A. in English from the University of Kansas and her MBA from Avila University. Her poetry has been featured in Urban Latino Magazine, The Kansas City Star, and the spoken word compilation CD La Raza Spoken Here, released by Calaca Press.

Her stories have aired nationally on Morning Edition, All Things Considered, Marketplace, The World, and Studio 360. Admission to the panel discussion is free. Call (816) to RSVP. Ortiz compartió su historia con una audiencia repleta la semana pasada durante el desayuno realizado con motivo de la Beca Dr. Agapito Mendoza en el campus de UMKC. El evento anual es una herramienta clave para recolectar fondos establecidos en memoria del Dr. Agapito Mendoza quien fue Director de Acción Afirmativa en la universidad y cuyo alcance e interés se extiende más allá de la universidad llegando hasta la comunidad. Mendoza se desempeñó en una variedad de juntas entre las que se incluyó a la Guadalupe Center. UMKC está trabajando con ahínco para atraer a estudiantes de las minorías al campus local y esperan aumentar la cantidad de becas que puedan poner a disposición de los estudiantes. Esta beca (La Beca Mendoza) es importante ya que mientras pudiéramos atraer acá a más personas y aumentar los fondos, nosotros podríamos aumentar la cantidad de becas que le pudiéramos ofrecer a los estudiantes hispanos para que ellos pudieran asistir a la universidad aquí en UMKC, dijo Leo Morton, Canciller de UMKC. Irene Mendoza, viuda de Agapito, compartió con la audiencia que su prima Sandra Rascon dijo una vez, La educación fue un regalo que el Dr. Agapito Mendoza quería que recibieran los estudiantes hispanos y a lo largo de sus años de enseñanza, él les inculcó un sed por el conocimiento. Él continuó educando a los estudiantes a pesar de sus problemas de salud. Incluso en sus últimos días en este mundo, él aún reconocía la gran importancia que tenía el que las minorías continuaran con su educación. Ortiz deseó haber tenido la oportunidad de conocer a Mendoza. Mientras me encuentro hoy aquí y miro esta foto, él luce tan apasionado por lo que hacía y luce como si verdaderamente quería ayudar a los estudiantes. Incluso ahora él está ayudando a los estudiantes por intermedio de su Beca Agapito Mendoza de UMKC., dijo ella. Mendoza fue una figura clave en lo fue el cambiarle el rostro a changing the face of the administration and faculty at the college. He felt that minority students needed to see teachers of their same ethnic background at the school to encourage them to attend the local campus. Today, Chancellor Morton agrees that the campus faculty staff must mirror the community. Students will go places where they see people like them. It is important that we get faculty, staff and students here to reflect the community that we are a part of. I am so happy that Agapito Mendoza was here and left this legacy. This legacy gives us something to talk about, it gives us an opportunity to bring people together and it will lead to better things for the university, said Morton. Carlos Salazar, formerly of KCP&L and currently with United Way, is an alumnus of UMKC and was the keynote speaker. He recalled his talks with Dr. Mendoza on the plight of the Hispanic students at the campus. I witnessed firsthand the struggle that Latino students fighting for identity at this institution. It wasn t until Agapito made it a mission to insure equity, equality and inclusion that this began to change. He had experienced some of the same struggles our parents and grandparents did. Our forefathers arrived in this glorious country seeking steady work and a place to raise a family. Agapito never la administración y a la facultad de la universidad. Él sintió que los estudiantes de las minorías necesitaban ver en la universidad a profesores de sus mismas procedencias étnicas para que los motivaran a asistir al campus local. Hoy en día, el Canciller Morton concuerda con que el personal de la facultad debe reflejar a la comunidad. Los estudiantes irán a lugares en donde verán a personas como ellos. Es importante que nosotros hagamos que los miembros de nuestra facultad, nuestro personal y estudiantes reflejen a la comunidad de la que somos parte. Estoy tan feliz de que Agapito Mendoza estuviera aquí y dejara este legado. Este legado nos da algo de qué hablar, nos da una oportunidad para hacer que la gente se junte y ello llevará hacia cosas mejores para la universidad, dijo Morton. Carlos Salazar, otrora con KCP&L y actualmente con United Way, es un ex alumno de UMKC y fue el orador principal. Él recuerda sus pláticas con el Dr. Mendoza sobre el dilema de los estudiantes hispanos en el campus. Yo fui testigo de la lucha que libraron los estudiantes latinos para obtener identidad en esta institución. No fue hasta que Agapito hizo parte de su misión el asegurar justicia, igualdad e inclusión que esto comenzó a cambiar. Él experimentó algunas de las mismas luchas que libraron nuestros padres y abuelos. Nuestros antepasados llegaron a este glorioso país buscando trabajo estable y un lugar para criar una familia. Agapito nunca se olvidó cómo sus padres lo atendieron, lucharon por él, para hacer una vida mejor para él. Ellos le enseñaron el valor de la educación, dijo Salazar. La población latina tiene uno de los promedios más grandes de deserción escolar y miembros de la comunidad tales como Salazar están exhortando a las familias y otras personas a influenciar a los estudiantes para que permanezcan en la escuela y asistan a la universidad. forgot how his parents provided for him, struggled for him, to make a better life for him. They taught him the value of education, said Salazar. The Latino population has one of the highest high school dropout rates and community members like Salazar are encouraging families and others to influence students that they should stay in school and attend college. He hopes that the Latino community will work hard to help support scholarship funds to make college affordable for all Latino students that seek a higher education. Salazar read a statement from his brother Tony, As a people we have not reached our full potential. The glass ceiling still prevents us from participating in the board room of many corporations and foundations. Moving forward we must continue his dream to send our very best and brightest to college while at the same time assisting families in need and our newly arrived brothers to reach their dream. I know that these are difficult times, unprecedented times, very hard times and families are struggling and can t afford to give to worthy causes nor send their kids to college, but as a community, we can t afford not to. As Consuelo Cruz looked around the packed room she felt it was a tribute to Mendoza that during this economy so many people turned out for the fundraiser in support of the scholarship. This large attendance shows us how much Agapito meant to us. I think it says a lot, especially in this economic times, how the community is really rallying behind Agapito s memory and the scholarship to make sure that students [pursue education] especially now more than ever because of the economic position that we are in. We have to continue his legacy, and we have to make sure that kids stay in school and go onto college, said Cruz. Él espera que la comunidad latina trabaje con ahínco para ayudar a apoyar los fondos para las becas para hacer que la universidad sea más asequible para todos los estudiantes latinos que buscan una educación superior. Salazar leyó una declaración de su hermano Tony, Como grupo de personas, no hemos alcanzado nuestro completo potencial. Este cielo de vidrio aún nos restringe de participar en los salones de las juntas directivas de muchas corporaciones y fundaciones. Al avanzar debemos continuar su sueño de enviar a los mejores y más brillantes de los nuestros a la universidad mientras que al mismo tiempo debemos ayudar a las familias en necesidad y a nuestros hermanos recién llegados a que realicen sus sueños. Yo sé que éstos son tiempos difíciles, tiempos sin precedentes, tiempos demasiado duros y las familias están luchando y no pueden costear el dar a causas valiosas ni enviar a sus hijos a la universidad, pero como comunidad, no podemos darnos el lujo de no hacerlo. Mientras Consuelo Cruz escudriñaba alrededor del repleto salón, ella sintió que fue un tributo a Mendoza que durante esta difícil economía tantas personas llegaran al beneficio para recaudar dinero para entregarle su respaldo a la beca.

Nosotros tenemos que continuar su legado y tenemos que asegurarnos de que los muchachos permanezcan en la escuela y vayan a la universidad, dijo Cruz.

3 Residents Want to address Crime held last year, but the recent crime spree in the Westside community has neighbors and business owners requesting training sessions be held again to help them find the tools that they will need to stop crime from controlling their neighborhoods. It is my understanding there is an upswing in business related theft and assaults going on. Residents and business owners are very concerned, so we wanted to bring this session to the bilingual community so they can arm themselves with the tools they need, said Reynolds. Mbogo said that hosting a program about neighborhood safety is a good way for residents and business owners to come together and talk and begin to take a proactive stance against crime. We have had some homicides and thefts and there was a growing concern among the residents so the timing was right to put this program together, she added. The Neighborhood Watch and Block Watch program gives the residents the tools they need to know if they are confronted with crime or gives them information on how to reduce the chance of crime from happening at their home or office. We do this type of training all over the city. No matter what part of the city it is there is always crime going on, even in areas you wouldn t associate with being a crime ridden area. We want to make sure that we touch all areas with our program and try to be realistic about what is going on. It may never happen to the people who are attending the session but if it does we want them to be more prepared, said Reynolds. People are encouraged to get to know their neighbors by their names and exchange telephone numbers so they can be in contact with one another when a problem arises. That is one thing the training session does is encourage you to get to know your neighbors, and we know that you may not be able to get to know the entire block, but at least learn the neighbors right around your home or business. Exchange a contact number so that if something goes on around their home or in the neighborhood that they should know about, you have a way to contact them, said Mbogo. Ashley Guerra feels safe in her neighborhood and is thankful that her block has been exempt from the crime that seems to be invading the community. Unable to attend the neighborhood watch meeting, she is glad that they are holding these sessions and hopes that she will see the police be more visible around the area. I know there have been some incidents at the car wash and I have heard about some of the car break-ins. I have four kids and once it is night we don t go out just because there are some incidents. I do feel safe and I feel my husband keeps us safe, but I am glad that they are making the community more aware, she said. Residents are encouraged by both Reynolds and Mbogo to call the police if they see a robbery or a crime being committed. If you see something out of the ordinary or you suspect something is out of the ordinary, a lot of times people don t want to call Residentes quieren tratar la delincuencia Statistics taken from the Kansas City Missouri Police Department website Estadísticas extraídas de la página Internet del Departamento de Policía de Kansas City Missouri DRIVE BY SHOOTINGS IN KANSAS CITY MISSOURI BALACERAS HECHAS DESDE VEHÍCULOS EN MOVIMIENTO EN KANSAS CITY MISSOURI the police. The most important thing you can do is call the police and it gets reported and they track that information to see if they need more police in an area that is having a problem, said Mbogo. Guerra agrees that people seem to be afraid to call the police and get involve but they shouldn t be afraid, they should be concerned and watch out for one another. People are afraid to call because they think something may happen to you, don t hesitate to call and just be aware of your surroundings and if everyone is looking out for everyone else than things can get taken care of before it gets to the point of robberies, she said January/Enero February/Febrero March/Marzo April/Abril May/Mayo June/Junio July/Julio NA August/Agosto NA September/Septiembre NA October/Octubre NA November/Noviembre NA December/Diciembre NA To set up a Neighborhood Watch training session contact the City and Community Services at (816) Residents and business owners who attended the training sessions say they know that they all need to be more involved in protecting their community and they like the idea of becoming pro-active instead of reacting to crime in the neighborhood. Residentes y dueños de negocios que asistieron a las sesiones de entrenamiento dijeron estar consientes de que todos ellos necesitan participar más en lo que va a proteger a sus comunidades y les gusta la idea de aprender cómo actuar anticipadamente en vez de reaccionar tardíamente ante los crímenes en sus vecindarios. CONT./PAGINA llamada Vigilancia Vecinal de Bloque y responder a las preguntas de los participantes. Dos sesiones similares fueron realizadas el año pasado, pero la reciente razzia criminal en la comunidad del Westside tiene a los vecinos y a los dueños de negocios pidiendo que se realicen nuevamente sesiones de entrenamiento para ayudarlos a encontrar las herramientas que necesitarán para detener el crimen e impedirle que controle a sus vecindarios. Hasta donde yo sé, allí está ocurriendo un aumento en robos y asaltos relacionados a los negocios. Los residentes y los dueños de negocios están muy preocupados, por lo que queremos traerle la sesión a esta comunidad bilingüe para que puedan armarse a sí mismos con las herramientas que necesitan, dijo Reynolds. Mbogo dijo que el conducir un programa sobre la seguridad vecinal es una buena manera para que los residentes y los dueños de negocios se reúnan y platiquen y comiencen a tomar la postura de actuar con anticipación en contra del crimen. Nosotros hemos experimentado algunos homicidios y robos y allí existe una gran preocupación entre los residentes por lo que el momento fue propicio para implementar este programa, agregó ella. Los programas Vigilancia Vecinal y Vigilancia de Bloque le entregan a los residentes las herramientas que necesitan conocer si es que llegaran a enfrentarse con el crimen o se les entrega la información de cómo reducir la oportunidad de que un crimen les ocurra en sus casas u oficinas. Nosotros hacemos este tipo de entrenamientos por toda la ciudad. Sin importar en qué lugar de la ciudad ello ocurra, allí siempre existe el crimen, incluso en áreas que uno no las asociaría como áreas consumidas por el crimen. Nosotros queremos asegurarnos que lleguemos a todas las áreas con nuestro programa y tratar de ser realistas sobre lo que está sucediendo. Esto podría nunca llegarle a suceder a las personas que están asistiendo a la sesión, pero si les llegara a ocurrir, queremos que están mejor preparadas, dijo Reynolds. A la gente se le exhorta a que lleguen a conocer a sus vecinos por sus nombres y se intercambien números telefónicos para que estén en contacto mutuo cuando asome un problema. Una cosa que la sesión de entrenamiento hace es exhortarle a que conozca a sus vecinos y sabemos que a usted no le sería fácil conocer a todo la cuadra o bloque, pero a lo menos apréndase los nombres de los vecinos que están junto a su casa o negocio. Intercambie un número de contacto para que si algo que les pudiera interesar a ellos sucediera alrededor de su casa o en el vecindario, entonces usted tendrá una manera de contactarse con ellos, dijo Mbogo. Ashley Guerra se siente segura en su vecindario y está agradecida de que su bloque o cuadra haya quedado exento del crimen que pareciera estar invadiendo a la comunidad. Impedida de asistir a la reunión de vigilancia vecinal, ella está feliz de que estén realizando esas sesiones y espera que vera a la policía con más frecuencia alrededor del área. Yo sé que han ocurrido algunos incidentes en el negocio de lavado de automóviles y he escuchado respecto a alguno desvalijamientos de vehículos. Yo tengo cuatro hijos y una vez que se oscurece, no salimos simplemente porque allí están sucediendo algunos incidentes. Me siento segura y siento que mi esposo nos mantiene a salvo, pero estoy feliz de que están haciendo que la comunidad tome más conciencia, dijo ella. Los residentes son exhortados tanto por Reynolds como por Mbogo para que llamen a la policía si es que ven que se está cometiendo un robo o un crimen. Si ustedes ven algo fuera de lo ordinario o sospechan que algo está fuera de lo común, muchas veces la gente no quiere llamar a la policía. La cosa más importante que uno puede hacer es llamar a la policía y ello es reportándolo y ellos siguen la información para ver si necesitan a más policías en el área que está teniendo problemas, dijo Mbogo. Guerra concuerda con que las personas parecieran estar temerosas de llamar a la policía e involucrarse, pero ellas no deberían sentir temor, ellas deberían estar preocupadas de cuidarse los unos a los otros. La gente siente temor de llamar porque creen que algo les puede suceder, no duden de llamar y simplemente vigile lo que lo rodea y si alguien está cuidando a todos los otros, entonces las cosas se pueden solucionar antes de que lleguen hasta el punto de los robos, dijo ella.

4 Earnings can compound tremendously shape, consider these options: Avoid gift tax. You can give cash or property worth up to $13,000 a year, per individual, before the federal gift tax kicks in. This limit doesn t apply if you re paying someone s tuition or medical expenses, or for gifts to your spouse, charities or political organizations. Read Publication 950 at for more details. Pay for education. If college is still far off for your children, grandchildren or others, consider funding 529 Qualified State Tuition Plans for them. Account interest earned is not subject to federal (and in most cases, state) income taxes; plus, many states offer tax deductions for contributions made to their own 529 Plans. To learn more about the intricacies of 529 Plans, read FinAid s comprehensive overview at 529plans.phtml. Another good resource for information about the different types of financial aid, grants and loans available to college students is Practical Money Skills for Life, Visa Inc. s free personal financial management program (www.practicalmoneyskills.com/college). Roth IRAs for kids. If your minor children or grandchildren earn income, you may fund a Roth IRA on their behalf up to the lesser of $5,000 or the amount of their taxable earnings. You contribute on an after-tax basis, but the earnings grow, tax-free, until the account is tapped at retirement. For young people, these earnings can compound tremendously over time. For example, if you made only a one-time $1,000 contribution for your 16-yearold granddaughter, at 6 percent interest the account would be worth nearly $20,000 tax-free at age 66. If she contributed an additional $50 a month going forward, it would grow to more than $210,000 at 66. Fund someone s benefits. Many people cannot afford health insurance and so forego coverage, putting themselves just one serious illness or accident away from financial disaster. Many also cannot afford to fully fund their 401(k) plan or IRA. Consider applying your tax-exempt gifts mentioned above to help loved ones pay for these critical benefits, greatly increasing their financial selfsufficiency. Charitable contributions.

We were extremely pleased with the response from citizens on Sept. 19 and want to provide an additional opportunity for citizens, leaders and members of community and faith-based organizations to help support the health and safety of our community by serving as flu-support volunteers. At the Oct. 3 event, people who want to volunteer will fill out registration forms and receive training and credentials. During largescale public health emergencies, such as pandemic influenza, community volunteers may be needed to support a variety of activities, including: Participating in vaccination clinics Supporting community education and awareness campaigns Helping individuals who show no signs of the flu understand principles of self isolation and quarantine operations Assisting with home health CONT./PAGINA valor hasta de $13,000 al año, por persona, antes de que el impuesto federal sobre donaciones se active.

6 Safety Tips might save your life Fall is the time of year to get your house in order before winter sets in. For most homeowners, this means it is once again time for a good, oldfashioned gutter cleaning. According to Robert Lenney, gutter cleaning expert, it s the semi-annual project that strikes fear into the heart of all urban and suburban warriors who face that dreaded request, Honey, it s time to clean out the gutters! Each year, Consumer Reports states that about 180,000 homeowner accidents and fatalities occur that are ladder related. That is why it s best to be prepared to do the job right. Here are a few tips and tricks that Lenney, coowner of Commercial Gutter Inc., suggests for safe and effective gutter cleaning: 1. Ladder Safety: Always let someone know you will use a ladder to work on your roof or gutters. Use a safe and sturdy ladder, preferably with a small shelf strong enough to hold a five-gallon bucket to collect gutter debris. Make sure to secure the bucket with a lanyard. We recommend a four-legged step ladder for a single story home, and an extension ladder for a two-story home. An orchard ladder is not recommended because there are only three legs for support and they can become unbalanced. A wooden ladder is also not recommended because they are often wobbly and difficult to safely balance. Fiberglass ladders seem to be the sturdiest, but are also the heaviest. Inspect the ladder for defects, dents or loose parts before climbing. Before climbing the ladder, lightly jump on the first rung a few times to make sure the ground is secure. Sometimes the soil is soft, or there might be a hole underneath one of the ladder legs. A piece of half-inch plywood can be placed under the ladder legs to keep it level and steady. When climbing the ladder, always remember the Three Point Rule. As much as possible try to have both legs and one hand firmly secure on the ladder at all times to provide stability and balance while cleaning. Conversely, do not lean out from the ladder balancing on one leg while using two hands to clean debris from the gutter. Oftentimes, it is this stretching and reaching for that last scoop of debris that lands a person in the hospital. Lastly, if possible, have someone hold the ladder to provide additional safety while climbing. 2. Garden Hose: To use a garden hose with normal water pressure, simply attach a pistolgrip trigger spray nozzle. This type of spray nozzle allows you to adjust the water pressure with the use of just one hand. Spraying out the gutter is generally best when most of the larger debris has already been removed. It s difficult to spray out leaves and pine needles that have piled up over the summer and fall. Spray toward the downspout (leader pipe) so the small, murky debris flows down the downspout. If the downspout is connected to an underground drain that goes out to your street, the base of the downspout needs to be disconnected so the debris can be released at this point, preventing a potential clog further down the system under your lawn or driveway. 3. Gutter Scoop: Scooping out the leafy debris seems to be the best overall method for cleaning out the gutter. An excellent tool for this job is the bright orange plastic Gutter Getter scoop. This tool is unique because the front scooping edge is very thin and it forms itself to the bottom of the gutter trough, making it easy to scoop out even the toughest of debris in any size gutter system. Stay away from using a metal scooping tool because the bottom of the gutter and seams can be damaged. Scraping the bottom of a steel gutter can introduce areas to rust, and if the bottom of the gutter is already rusting, the rusting process could speed up. Using a metal scooping tool can also damage seams in the gutter. An extension pole can also be attached to the gutter scoop for reaching farther to clean the gutter, reducing ladder moves. 4. Wear Gloves: Gloves can help protect hands against dirty, rotting leaf debris that often contains bird, pigeon and squirrel droppings that are ridden with bacteria. Gloves can also prevent painful cuts from the torn metal shards of an old, ragged gutter. Cotton gloves can soak up dirty water that exposes skin to bacteria. Leather gloves are not as maneuverable and tend to shrivel up when they dry after cleaning. Rubber gloves can be poked or torn by metal shards in the gutter. Thick, suede glove material is recommended because it is superior to cotton, thin leather or rubber gloves. 5. Protective Eye Wear: Eye protection is necessary because one never knows what might fly out of the downspout when cleaning gutters. People have experienced rats, birds, frogs, wasps and bees leaving at high speeds once they start removing a clog, and the last thing they want to have happen is an eye injury. 6. Rake Off Roof: Rake all debris off the roof first. Otherwise, the next rain will wash all the debris down into the clean gutter, clogging it again. Also, debris left on the roof can lead to water damming up in valleys or around the chimney, which can cause erosion and roof leaks over time. 7. Rubber Shoes: If walking on the roof is necessary to perform gutter cleaning, it is good to use rubber soled shoes. Rubber soles tend to adhere best and prevent slipping and falls. Roof tops tend to be moist in the morning, so it is best to walk on the roof after the sun is well up in the sky and has dried up all the moisture. Late mornings or early afternoons are the best times to walk on a roof. For wood shake roofs, an excellent option is to wear special spiked roofing shoes called Korkers, which have small, metal spikes similar to golf shoes, helping attain a good grip when walking on the roof. However, if the gutter cleaning project is bad enough to warrant Korkers, it is probably best at that point to use a professional gutter cleaning company. Wearing Korkers can be tricky, and slips can still occur. 8. Downspouts Unclogged: Make sure the downspouts (leader pipe) are clear. After all the gutters are cleaned out, run the water hose down the downspout at full pressure. If the water backs up out of the top, a clog is present. Normally, it can be unclogged by tapping on the side of the downspout. But if that doesn t work, the downspout and back need to be removed, and it should be flushed from the bottom. If a clog is present, and the downspout is connected to an underground drain, it is best to disconnect the bottom of the downspout from the underground drain. Otherwise, the clog may move to the underground drain. 9. Downspout Chain: If the downspout makes an annoying dripping sound during or after a rain storm, a special decorative chain can be installed to hang down in place of a traditional downspout. The rainwater runs down the chain gracefully and looks rather beautiful, like a decorative fountain. 10. Clean Gutters Two Times A Year: Make sure gutters are cleaned at least twice a year, once in the fall and again in the spring. One main reason for cleaning out gutters is to eliminate the possibility of water damage from rainwater runoff due to a clogged gutter. Another reason is to reduce the possibility of rust corrosion. 11. Power Line Hazard: When cleaning gutters around a power line cable that drops from the power pole to the roof of a home, conduct a visual inspection of the electrical cable where it connects to the roof. This is to ensure that the protective wire insulation hasn t rubbed off through years of wear-and-tear by weather and nearby trees. If the cable appears to have damage, do not attempt to repair it. Call a licensed professional electrical contractor to fix it. It is not advisable to use a metal ladder near power lines when cleaning out your gutters. A fiberglass ladder is a better safety solution in this situation. 12. Gutter Guards: Using a quality gutter guard can eliminate the need for cleaning out gutters. Consider carefully the manufacturer s claims before purchasing a gutter protection system that keeps out leaves and pine needles, because many promises are made that can t be delivered.
