    Now's the time funds need to be released from the federal government, to the local community action agencies--for help to provide fans or airconditioning to at risk folks...This used to be an annual event, although funding was limited---but the last couple years it hasn't happened. For the sick and elderly with heart and respiratory problems, this weather can truly be a life and death matter, even in their own homes.
