Olivia Lomax had been wanting to live in Midtown for years. Her business, Delta Groove Yoga, was part of the 2013 revival of Overton Square. However, her children, Dylan, Bella and Henry, were all going to grade school in East Memphis. When the youngest child started middle school in Midtown and her daughter started at the new Crosstown High, the family actively started looking for a house within the Parkway system. 

“My fiancé Jonathan ”Joni” Rokotnitz is from Europe and was used to walking everywhere,” said Olivia. “So we knew we wanted to be in Midtown where New Urbanism was evolving. We wanted to be inside or just beside the Parkway system that encircles Overton

Curb appeal is an important home-improvement project

LAURINBURG — While the coronavirus pandemic has kept folks at home and sparked a number of home improvement projects, many of those have been inside the home.

But Adam Wilhelm, owner of AJW Landscaping of Laurinburg, says it’s the perfect time of year for some outdoor projects.

“The fall is a great time for doing some easy home improvement projects in the yard,” he said. “If the long, hot summer has stressed out your lawn, overseeding in the month of October with annual rye grass will give you a lush green stand of grass without breaking the bank.

“This is also a great time to plant shrubs and trees, with cooler temperatures allowing them to become established without the threat of extreme heat,” he added. “Once we’ve had our first frost it’s the right time to do some much-needed pruning and shaping of your already established shrubs and trees.”

First projects to tackle after buying a house

CLOSE

When it comes to renovating your new home, it can be difficult to decide what to do first.

Melissa Perlman and Mark Burns closed on their beach cottage in Delray Beach, Florida, nearly two weeks ago.

The first project they tackled was landscaping. The home, built in 1956, was recently renovated.

“It was move-in ready and pretty perfect in our eyes,” says Perlman, president and founder of BlueIvy Communications, a public relations agency. “We live on a semi-active road, so our landscaper put in Colusa plants that will grow and eventually provide more privacy in our front yard.”

Before writing up a to-do list, take a good look at your budget, one expert advises. “Don’t spend too much money on over-improvements,” says Artur Muller, founder and CEO of Amluxe Realty in Lighthouse Point, Florida. “Create a maximum budget for renovations, which will keep your spending in line with comparable

How to Choose a Paint Color

If you’ve ever tried to pick a paint color for your home, you know that it can be a maddeningly difficult task, even for the most decisive among us. Whether you’re looking for the perfect shade of white (warm or cool? Matte or eggshell?) or the right inky blue (green or purple undertones?

Before you head to the paint store—and definitely before you think about buying a few gallons of actual paint—check out designer and stylist Faith Blakeney’s tips for how to navigate the color process.

    Fraternity members, volunteers remodel late officer’s home

    NEW ALBANY, Ind. (AP) — Starr Pavey said her heart has been broken since her husband, Bill, died in June, but a wide smile appeared across her face as she spoke about his personality and gregarious nature.

    Bill was a jokester who made everyone smile, even while he was battling cancer for the last five years of his life, Starr said.

    “We laughed all of the time until the last month or so. He said it hurt him to laugh,” Starr said of her late husband.

    Bill Pavey was well-known throughout southern Indiana for his service to the community. He worked for the New Albany-Floyd County Parks Department for over eight years as a park ranger before serving as a New Albany police officer for two decades.


    It was the day of his death, June 3, when Starr said a friend who was at her house mentioned smelling gas. A

    In the cruelest of ironies, while Hurricane Delta drenched the Gulf Coast this weekend, there’s not even a drizzle to slow a climate change-induced California wildfire larger than the size of Rhode Island that rages on as you read this.

    Exploding to more than a blazing million active acres this past week, the August Complex, in its two months of unremitting fury, has reached “gigafire” status, the first in California’s modern history. Overall, it has lost four million acres representing about 4% of the entire state, double the previous annual record in a place where the wildfire season is now three months longer than in the 1970s.

    The personal loss out west for many cannot be overestimated, but the immense inferno’s impacts have consequences across the continent to this coast.

    Strawberries, lettuce and wine may be among the hardest expected to

    The truth about Tim Taylor’s Home Improvement clothes

    When he’s not teaching audiences how to spruce up their home on Tool Time in a button-down shirt, dress pants, and tie, Tim Taylor lounges around at home in less formal threads. During the portions of Home Improvement, where he’s spending time at home or working in his yard, sweatshirts and t-shirts are more his speed. At first glance, a detail like this isn’t worth thinking about, since it’s so common for people to dress more comfortably at home. However, the clothes themselves share one characteristic with an interesting story behind them — they all include some mention of Michigan-based universities or sports teams.

    According to Collider, the decision to keep Taylor’s outerwear consistent came from Tim Allen himself, who wanted to represent his home state (he was born in Denver, Colorado, but moved to Birmingham, Michigan, when he was 13) on the national television series. While that was
