DID YOU KNOW
The Gardencourt mansion, on Alta Vista Road near Cherokee Park, was home to the UofL School of Music from 1947 to 1969. The mansion was built in 1906 and bequeathed to UofL in 1947 by the heirs of Marie Norton, the last member of the immediate family of financier George Washington Norton. Gardencourt is now owned by the Louisville Seminary and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Partnership for a Green City Energy Tip: Vampire Load – Power Strips
The average home or classroom has about 20 vampire loads and the case with these appliances is that, “off” does not really mean “off.” By installing new power strips where electronic clusters originally existed, you will save up to $200 in your electricity bill this year by turning the toggle switch off. If you are satisfied with your results and the simplicity of installing power strips, inform others about the vampire load phenomenon. Chances are, they have never heard of it.
