Bethesda homeowner Gwenn Hibbs did not want to expand the footprint of her kitchen, but she did want a space that was bright and open — and felt “light and airy.”
Hibbs had a pretty good idea of the overall style that would appeal to her, but she brought in a professional kitchen designer to help execute her vision. In a kitchen, layout is as important as aesthetics, and Nadia Subaran of Aidan Design was hired to deliver both.
“In the old kitchen, there was no connection to the adjacent spaces, especially to the family room where the homeowner spent time. The kitchen was locked in by a large peninsula,” Subaran said. Continue reading…
The “Rarest Antique Car” award went to a 1915 Dodge touring car. The car has chassis dated by to 1910. 1915 was the first year Dodge produced a car, but by then it was already one of the largest and most experienced automakers in America. The car was simple, plain, sturdy and an immediate hit.
A local classic automobile owned by Denny White of Emmett won an award for the “Rarest Antique Car” at the seventh annual Wings and Wheels event last month. The rare, 1915 Dodge touring car was found to have a chassis with the production date stamp of 1910.
The car was entered into the car show in the name of the Patriot Center boys – Denny White. The car’s mechanic, Harvey Stetzel and others from the Emmett Kiwanis Club spent time teaching some of the boys at the Patriot Center how to wash and care for the old cars and information such as the engine size, tires and interior instruments.
Stetzel taught the boys basic information about each of the vehicles and encouraged the boys to do their own research online. At the event, the boys proudly shared specific details about the cars with the crowd. . . Continue Reading

Many people enjoy treating themselves to a haircut, manicure or other salon services — it’s a chance to kick back and be blissfully pampered. But if one is homebound or bedridden, those options are severely limited.
That was before Carmen Crabill, stylist, owner and founder of Gussied Up Home Hair Care, who was the first person in Indiana to obtain a license from the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency to go into clients’ homes or living quarters to serve them.
Crabill, a New Haven High School and Four Winds Academy Hair Design graduate who received her in-home license in November, created this extension of her brick-and-mortar business, Carmen & Co. Hair Salon, for clients whose mobility was restricted. Requests are by appointment only and within an hour’s drive of Fort Wayne. Continue reading…

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says the company is not building a phone or an operating system. Rather, Facebook is introducing a mobile experience called ‘‘Home’’ that makes the social network the hub of any smartphone that runs Google’s Android operating system.
Zuckerberg says users can have an experience on Android phones that they can’t have on other platforms. That’s because Google makes the software available on an open-source basis, allowing others to adapt it to their needs.
The new product, called ‘‘Home’’ because it resides on the home screen of Android phones, is a family of apps designed around people’s Facebook connections. Zuckerberg says the goal is to put ‘‘people before apps.’’ Continue reading…
Many employees are concerned that health care reform will have a considerable impact on their employee benefits. They believe that they cost of insurance will increase, that the level of benefits will decrease and that fewer employers will offer coverage. These concerns are shared by employers as well. Insurance carriers have a great responsibility to increase knowledge and communication as well as create benefit packages to employers that attract and retain employees.
As brokers and employers get ready to meet the benefits challenges posed by health care reform, many American workers have concerns about how the reforms will affect their worksite benefits. According to Health Care Reform: The Waiting Is Over, the third in a series of research briefs based on The Prudential Insurance Company of America’s (Prudential’s) Seventh Annual Study of Employee Benefits: Today & Beyond, nearly half (46%) of employees believe it is likely that the cost of health insurance will increase overall and nearly a third (31%) say it’s likely that fewer employers will offer health insurance coverage.
Brokers and employers both anticipate consequences from health care reform, with brokers expecting a larger impact. Both groups agree that benefits funding will be most affected. Among their top concerns, brokers expect the number of employee benefits offered (80%) and benefit communications (78%) to be highly impacted, while employers note benefits service and support (56%), as well as number of benefits offered (55%) as their top concerns.
Seventy-two percent of brokers say that “expertise and thought leadership on health care reform” from insurers is either critical or very helpful. . . Continue Reading

This week marks the 100 year anniversary of the Great Flood in Dayton, Ohio. The flood was a result of five days of nonstop rain that quickly filled the rivers and creeks to beyond capacity and giving nowhere for the water to go but into farmlands. It took more than a year to clean up. The elderly who remembered the flood as children shared some of their experiences of the flood.
This week Dayton will observe the centennial of the Great Flood of 1913. It was a terrible weeklong disaster that occurred just after Easter.
Downpours fell for five days and the rivers that converge in Dayton all flooded at the same time, nearly washing Dayton off the map. Most accounts agree that it took more than a year to clean up.
It’s important for us here in Clark County — particularly Springfield and the southwestern corner of the county — to remember that the disaster extended up the Mad River. Our flooding was not as extensive as in Dayton, but Clark County saw casualties and damage. . . Continue Reading

Many New Jersey homeowners are overwhelmed with the new proposed flood maps and the regulations that accompany them. They were just hit with Sandy and have rebuilding and repair costs and are not looking at increased flood insurance of thousands of dollars. Many of the areas hit by Sandy are now in the “V-Zone” which has stricter building requirements to account for the increased risk of damaged from storm surges.
A huge crowd came to Long Branch City Hall for the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection’s (DEP) public hearing to protest the potential adoption of FEMA’s advisory base flood elevation (ABFE) maps as the new elevation standard for the the state.
The crowd on Thursday night was mostly comprised of many unhappy homeowners from around the state impacted by Hurricane Sandy.
“The thought of increasing flood insurance premiums into the tens of thousands of dollars is daunting,” Toms River resident Margaret Quinn said. . . Continue Reading

It’s easy to rack up huge data charges when you take your mobile phone overseas. The good news? It’s just as easy to keep costs down.
You probably know someone who has returned from overseas with a horror story about a crazy-big–and utterly unexpected–mobile phone or tablet bill. In some cases people have been socked with five-figure tabs for using currency conversion apps, digital postcards, and even humdrum data like texts and emails. And that unlimited data plan you’ve got in the U.S. won’t work once you cross international borders. But we’ve got some easy, affordable ways to be super-smart about using that smartphone.
