PWC offers several services to help homeowners and renters take control of their energy usage and save on their utility bills. And during most winters, PWC has folks calling at all hours to seek out those services. That’s because many homeowners see their energy usage (as well as their utility bills) increase during the cold winter months as they try to heat their home.
But with this year’s mild winter, PWC Vice President of Operations Nina Creech says PWC needs more weatherization clients.
“People aren’t heating their homes like they usually need to during the cold months of the year,” she said. “So they’re not seeing their energy usage increase and don’t feel compelled to call. But that’s the wrong mindset to have.”
Creech says that a mild winter shouldn’t stop folks from seeking out PWC’s weatherization and energy efficiency services. In many cases, PWC can help reduce home energy expenditures by as much as 20 percent, while improving the safety, comfort and living conditions of residents.
“You can still save money and energy, even when the winter weather is mild,” she said.
To apply for PWC’s weatherization services, Ohio residents should call (513) 351-7921 and Kentucky residents should call (859) 331-1991. Or you can learn more by visiting www.pwchomerepairs.org/.

There are so many things to look forward to at Oscar Night® and the food is no exception. Each year, the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza provides Oscar Night guests with a high quality, gourmet dining experience that never disappoints. This is largely in part to the culinary genius of Todd Kelly, Executive Chef and Director of Food & Beverage.
While Todd has been at the head of the hotel’s culinary department, Orchids has been named Cincinnati’s Top Restaurant in 2011 by Zagat Survey and One of the Top 50 Restaurants in the U.S. by Open Table in 2010. Todd was also named a Hilton Hotel Signature Chef, one of only six in the U.S., in 2010. Orchids was also named number one restaurant in the city by Cincinnati Magazine in 2011, 2010 & 2009, received a five-star rating from The Cincinnati Enquirer, and maintained a prestigious Four-Diamond rating from AAA. Todd was also named 2011 Chef of the Year by the American Culinary Federation.
Todd is in good company with pastry chef Megan Ketover. Megan recently competed on this season of Bravo’s “Top Chef’s Just Desserts” and made it more than half way through the competition.
Todd, Megan and the rest of the Hilton’s culinary team have come up the perfect southwestern themed menu for this year’s dinner.
Salad- Assorted bitter greens and lime cilantro vinaigrette, citrus segments, avocado and smoked paprika spiced walnuts
Entrée- Duet of salmon and grilled sirloin accompanied by roasted corn and green chili gallete, tomatillo salsa, asparagus, marinated red pepper and pickled red onion.
Dessert- Dark chocolate S’More Tart with Graham Cracker Crust, Toasted White chocolate marshmallow and Passionfruit Gekee.
