SunPower by Freedom Solar installs rooftop solar arrays on seven Mission Park locations - AltEnergyMag

Monday, June 19, 2017

San Antonio. Powered by 1,634 high-efficiency solar panels, the new solar projects will offset more than 55 percent of Mission Park's electricity needs at the seven locations: two mortuaries (Oak Hill and Palm Heights), its corporate office, three funeral chapels and cemeteries (North, South, and Dominion), and its funeral home (Brookehill). The entire system is expected to pay for itself in less than four and a half years. A generous local utility rebate covered roughly 46 percent of total system costs. Mission Park will also receive the Federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC) for 30 percent of the project's total cost, saving the company a total of 76 percent. Robert "Dick" Tips, chairman and CEO of Mission Park, is the fourth-generation owner and one of San Antonio's most prominent business leaders. While San Antonio's landmark funeral company is more than a century old, Mission Park has grown dramatically in the past quarter century, thanks to Tips' emphasis on pre-planning and his vision for development. "For us, the best part of solar energy is that doing the right thing environmentally is also the right thing to do financially," Tips says. "Solar reduces our long-term operating costs and paves the way for Mission Park to be more environmentally friendly and responsible so we can continue serving the San Antonio community for many more generations to come." Annually, Mission Park's solar arrays will produce 778,735 kilowatt-hours of electricity, which will offset more than 547 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalents. This is comparab...

George Saunders Gets Inside Lincoln's Head - The New Yorker - The New Yorker

Sunday, February 12, 2017

President invoked not only the just ended war but also Willie’s death as what he and Mary must finally try to rise above. Willie’s coffin was entombed for three years in Georgetown’s Oak Hill cemetery; it then shared the eighth car of Lincoln’s funeral train home to Springfield, where both father and son were laid to rest.Willie’s temporary afterlife in Oak Hill has become the subject of George Saunders’s first novel, “Lincoln in the Bardo” (Random House), now being published after a half-dozen books of accomplished, high-concept short fiction. The idea took hold, Saunders has said, when a friend told him how “newspapers of the time reported that Lincoln had returned to the crypt several times to hold his son’s body. As soon as I heard that, this image sprung to mind: a melding of the Lincoln Memorial and the Pietà.” The novel that has resulted is anything but a quiet tableau. It depicts a ferocious, keenly felt, and sometimes comic struggle over Willie’s spirit while he is in a Bardo, the Tibetan Buddhist transition from death to rebirth, during which one’s next life is very much up for grabs.The premise of the book is like many that give rise to historical fiction: intriguing and a little shaky. The prolific Lincoln scholar Harold Holzer believes that the President did visit the Oak Hill mausoleum but did not handle Willie’s body, whereas, he points out, the Secretary of War, Edwin Stanton, had once exhumed the coffin containing his infant daughter so that her corpse could stay for two years inside his house. Whatever the exact case, Abraham Lincoln’s active engagement with Willie’s post-mortem existence is a multi-sourceable matter of record. Bishop Matthew Simpson, in his funeral sermon for the President, cited Lincoln’s remark, “Since Willie’s death I catch myself every day involuntarily talking with him, as if he were with me,” and David Herbert Donald, in his biography of Lincoln, offers evidence that in the period after Willie’s death “he increasingly turned to religion for solace.”Ever since the President’s assassination, on Good Friday, there has been an emotional and literary yearning to see him in terms of resurrection, to have him consort with the living and the dead and even the undead. (Several years ago, Seth Grahame-Smith’s genre novel, “Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter,” which also mentions Lincoln’s reopening of Willie’s casket, achieved a wide, weird popularity.) Saunders cites the influence of “Our Town” on his cemetery imaginings, but they are also surely underpinned by Edgar Lee Masters’s “Spoon River Anthology” (1915), in which the spirit of Ann Rutledge, Lincoln’s legendary first love, insists from her Illinois burial plot on historical credit: “Bloom forever, O Republic, / From the dust of my bosom!”Saunders’s witty and garrulous graveyard is filled with semi-spirits in a state of denial. They believe that their dead bodies are merely a “sick-form,” and that the coffins and crypts containing them are “sick-boxes,” as if Oak Hill were a hospital instead of a cemetery. They have chosen to resist passage to a genuine afterlife, and with their defiance has come boredom: “Each night passed with a devastating sameness...
