George Hannes enlightened us today with his Bio. George was born Easter Sunday morning, April 4 th, 1926 in Toledo, Ohio, on the banks of the Maumee. Maumee means Mother Water by Miami Indians. His grade school and high schools are still standing. To earn money as a young lad, George sold the Toledo Blade and News Bee on the corner of Collingwood & Delaware. For extra money, he would sell numbers. He attended Toledo and Emory Colleges but it took him over 14 years to get a college degree due to all the moving around the world he did.

In 1945, George got frozen on Project Cross Roads, the Atom bomb tests on Bikini Atoll. He moved around so much that the laundry couldn’t keep up with him so he was always wearing new, stiff green sorts. A year after being discharged, George married Jean Collins (1947), and they have been together 63 years this Aug. They have 3 children, Dave, Linda & Cindy, 3 grandchildren and 4 great grandkids.

Program: Rick Jacobus filled in and introduced Steve Shaw, brother to Rick Shaw……a little joke by Rick. Steve owns Reliant Radon Solutions, Inc. and along with his step son, they test for Radon in your house and if the level is high enough, they install a system that vents the Radon to the outside of your house.

Radon is a radioactive gas. It comes from the natural decay of uranium that is found in nearly all soils. It typically moves up through the ground to the air above and into your home through cracks and other holes in the foundation. Your home traps radon inside, where it can build up. Any home may have a radon problem. This means new and old homes, well-sealed and drafty homes, and homes with or without basements.

Radon from soil gas is the main cause of radon problems. Sometimes radon enters the home through well water (see "Radon in Water" below). In a small number of homes, the building materials can give off radon, too. However, building materials rarely cause radon problems by themselves.


Cracks in solid floors, Construction joints , Cracks in walls, Gaps in suspended floors, Gaps around service pipes, Cavities inside walls or the water supply.

Nearly 1 out of every 15 homes in the U.S. is estimated to have elevated radon levels. Elevated levels of radon gas have been found in homes in your state. Contact your state radon office for general information about radon in your area. While radon problems may be more common in some areas, any home may have a problem. The only way to know about your home is to test.

Radon can also be a problem in schools and workplaces. Ask your state radon office about radon problems in schools, daycare and childcare facilities, and workplaces in your area. (303) 304-6042
