CONTRIBUTED Trees don't always fall in a predictable manner, creating a hazard for yourself and your property. StatePoint One in five DIY-ers tackling home renovations ends up in the hospital each year due to acci- dents, according to the Home Safety Council. Don't become a statistic. Here are the seven most dan- gerous DIY home renovations you should leave to the experts. TreeTrimming&Removal Trees don't always fall in a pre- dictable manner, creating a haz- ard for yourself and your prop- erty. It's best to consult a certified arborist, no matter how handy you are with power tools. "If a tree falls during a storm, a DIY mishap, or a careless neigh- bor's landscaping project, take photos and contact your claims adjuster as soon as possible," says Erie Insurance Vice President and Product Manager, Joe Vahey. "Your adjuster can help evaluate the damage and explain how your homeowners insurance can help." Asbestos Removal Many homes built before 1980 contain asbestos. Before renovat- ing, it's a smart idea to have your home inspected for asbestos-con- taining materials by accredited professionals. Leave clean-up to experts, and limit your exposure to the area. Inhaling airborne fi- bers may cause harmful respira- tory problems. Roof Repair When faced with severe storm damage, homeowners often look for a quick fix for roof damage. Rather than running the risk of falling or injuring yourself, have your homeowners insurance claims adjuster verify damage and schedule repair work with an experienced company. In the long run, this will save you time, money and help you avoid inju- ries. Electrical Repairs While it may be easy to change a light switch or install a ceiling fan (make sure your power is turned off before you start), re- placing circuits and other larger projects should be done by pro- HOMEIMPROVEMENT The7most dangerous DIY home renovations Bethel Assembly of God Church was the site of a 100th birthday party for Rosie Dawson on Sunday, June 21. More than 100 friends and relatives attended the event, in- cluding all of her children and grandchildren. Some came from as far away as Iowa and Texas to help honor her. Dawson was born sixth of 11 children on June 22, 1915 in Ruff, Washington to German immigrant parents from what is now Romania and Moldavia. The family moved to the Capay area near Orland in 1927. She attended a German Congrega- tional Church that her father and uncles built. After graduating from eighth grade at Capay School, Dawson began working in the fruit or- chards and doing housework. At 17, she moved to Berkeley to do live-in house work, enjoying the Bay Area of the 1930s. In 1939, Rosie married Wilmer Dawson and was blessed with 68 years of marriage. They lived in Orland for three years before moving to Stirling City where their three children, Jane, Karen and Dan, were born. The Diamond Match mill in Stir- ling City closed in 1958, and the Dawsons moved to Red Bluff. Rosie now has 12 grand chil- dren, 17 great grand children and six great, great grand chil- dren. From long before her mar- riage, Dawson had a deep com- mitment to serve Jesus. She taught Sunday school for about 40 years and was active in and led women's ministries for many years. Dawson continues to attend Bethel Church in Red Bluff and enjoys spending time with her ever expanding family.

Linnet has always enjoyed helping people and his commu- nity, but now that he sold his business and retired, he has more time to do so, he said. "Every day I'm looking for something to do," Linnet said. "It's so easy to be involved in your community. It can be something simple like taking shopping carts back to where they belong or cutting grass. I made a great living in the city of Corning so now that I'm able, I'm giving back." While Linnet is a Corning City Councilman, a position he has held since March 2011, his involvement, which has in- cluded Corning Rotary, Pay It Forward and doing clean-ups with his grandsons, goes back a bit further. The day he joined the council came just one day after he had joined the Corning Volunteer Fire Department, something he had thought that at his age he couldn't do, but Chief Mar- tin Spannaus encouraged him, Linnet said. "I always wanted to do it, but when I finally got the time I thought I was too old to do it," Linnet said. "The chief told me I wasn't. I was in my 50s when I joined. It's a good family to be apart of. I'm just lucky I have time and can do a lot of calls."
