Connect the hot wire with a wire nut to two pigtails (3" segments of wire). Connect the two pigtails to the two switches.

If this is one of those dual-switch gizmos that fits in the space of a single switch, these are designed such that a single hot connection can be made to both switches by connecting to one screw (on one side of the switch -- the other side is for two separate connections). In this case, you won't need either the wire nut or the pigtails.

Post back if you have further questions. You sound like a novice at this.

It's Arizona. It's summer. It's HOT. Birds and who knows what else have munched everything down to the roots. It didn't matter how spiny the cactus, they ate it all. What can I plant along my front walk that they wont eat? I only water the front walk area and leave the rest of the property natural.
