A place for everything Tricks to helping kids keep an organized bedroom The Associated Press

he conversation often starts with, “Where are your shoes?” For many parents trying to get out the door on time in the morning, a child with a disorganized bedroom can be a huge roadblock. Getting a child’s room organized can be the first step toward smoother mornings and more peaceful evenings. Here are some experts’ tips on decorating and arranging your child’s bedroom in ways that will simplify daily life.

T

Get them excited No need for full-scale redecorating. An offer to rearrange items and perhaps add a few new ones will probably get your child excited enough to help shape up her space.

“Try to make it fun,” says organizing consultant Kathryn Bechen, author of “Small Space Organizing: A Room-by-Room Guide to Maximizing Your Space.” “Take one whole Saturday or Sunday for the whole family to work on it.”

Pare down Eliminating clutter isn’t simple, especially when kids would prefer not to part with anything. Donna Smallin, author and creator of unclutter.com, suggests having kids help haul everything they own into the hallway outside their room. When the room is empty, have them bring back in only their favorite or most necessary things. When all the necessities are back in, start discussing what might be good to give away, sell, or box up for storing in an attic or basement.

Rethink the closet To get children excited about actually putting things away in the closet, let them “paint it a neat color inside,” says Bechen. It can be as outrageous as they’d like; it’s hidden behind a door. Then, work with their habits: If

GARDENING

Herbs for the kitchen garden everal years ago, I had a chance to visit Arlington National Cemetery. One cannot help but be moved by the solemn nature of this place so steeped in history. Overlooking the bustle of Washington, D.C., the cemetery itself is a quiet place, seemingly unaffected by time or the policy decisions that are made across the river. Ascending to the top of the hill the visitor arrives at Arlington House, the one-time home of Robert E. Lee. During a tour of the house and grounds, one observes the well-manicured kitchen garden, located just outside the kitchen building. As a precaution against fire, kitchens in 19th century manor houses often were located in a separate building. For convenience, a few commonly used vegetables were in supply adjacent to the kitchen, and prominently featured among these were a variety of herbs. Most of the common herbs can be grown seasonally in Florida. Herbs also adapt well to container culture because they are generally small and only a portion of the plant is needed at any one time. Only a few of each herb will be needed for a family kitchen garden, and it is wise to set aside a portion of the garden for their production. As many herbs are perennial, their section of the planting needs to be of a more permanent nature than the rotational system recommended for annual seasonal vegetable crops. As with vegetables, herbs should have at least six hours of sunlight each day. Soil pH should be maintained between 5.5 and 6.5, and light fertiliza-

SIKORSKI’S ATTIC

Nazi-era viola redeemed through friend’s love and music number of years ago, Q:Aa retiring man

brought a viola to me. He told me that he was a soldier at the capture off Berlin at the end of World nd War II, and ent was present when the various top Nazis’ bunkers were opened. In Hermann lied Göring’s bunker, the Allied troops looted fine foods,, liquor, cigars and more, while this soldier grabbed a small viola made circa 1933, by the Ernst Heinrich Roth Company, complete with Nazi eagle and swastika impressed at the button. This viola, in pristine condition, bothered me immensely.

JOHN SIKORSKI

The Nazi eagle and swastika, above, is impressed at the button of this viola, left. PHOTOS COURTESY OF JOHN SIKORSKI

Anna my wife Anna, wife, comm commented that, due to my qualms, I could only sell it to a Jewish customer. This sounded quite counter-intuitive, but I had to consider it, since I certainly was totally averse to selling it to a collector of Nazi memorabilia, where it would for sure have fetched a lot of money, or any such enthusiast. So, with

trembling heart, I showed it to a young Jewish friend and he eventually bought it! The philosophy was beautiful: An inanimate artistic object cannot be evil. Evil was done to it. The viola itself was a victim. It could be redeemed through our friend’s love and music making. I felt not only relieved, but also greatly uplifted and encouraged. — J.V.R., Gainesville I appreciate the words of wisdom and the positive outcome of the story. It is too bad such a historically positive symbol — the swastika — was mixed up with such a negative force. Thanks for the story.

R.P., Holly Hill In the category of holiday mechanical toy memorabilia, your Santa is low on the collectors want list. Potential dollar value is less than $100. Since you are thinking of selling, contact www.justkidsnostalgia.com and see if they are interested. Perhaps you might pass it on to a family member as a good “Remember When.” Let us know how things work out.

ORGANIZE: Add a whole row of colorful hooks to the wall at child’s level Continued from 4H your child isn’t a fan of hanging up clothing, consider filling some or all of the closet with open shelving. Put bins or baskets on each shelf, labeling with words and/or pictures to describe what belongs inside. If you will be using the closet rod, Smallin suggests adding a small double rod that hangs below one portion of the main rod. Put items the child wears most often on the lower rod, so they’re within easy reach. Or use this extra rod for the clothing the child will wear to school this week.

Get playful Make straightening up fun. Consider buying one large trashcan for sports equipment

and another to use as a hamper. Let the child label and personalize the outside. You can even add a plastic basketball hoop to the top of each trash can, so the child can have fun tossing items inside. “Who doesn’t love to throw stuff?” said Smallin.

Use the walls Kids are more likely to use hooks than hangers. So add lots of colorful hooks at your child’s level — not just one or two, but a whole row — to store hoodies, jackets and even pants. Another key item for the wall: A dry-erase board (WallPops makes one that’s a repositionable vinyl decal) where kids can keep a checklist of tasks for bedtime and morning. Write out the checklist with them, then

praise them for using it.

Better bed area Kids who do homework on their beds will be more organized if the bed is made and uncluttered. So simplify bedding — perhaps just use a fitted sheet and a duvet with a cover you can drop in the wash once a week. Limit the decorative pillows and piles of toys, so school supplies can’t get lost in the chaos.

Once you’ve done it For the first few weeks, Bechen says, “Run through the drill. Tell them, ‘You come home, you put your things here... .’ ” Repeat the steps each day, as patiently as possible. And trust that in time, your kids will keep their bedrooms organized out of habit.

Brewster Home Fashions shows the WallPops Peace Dry-Erase Message Board decal that can help a student keep track of appointments or a bedtime checklist of responsibilities. Donna Smallin, author and creator of unclutter.com, suggests lifting the child’s bed with risers to create extra storage space, which can be filled with labeled plastic bins, shown here.

ED DEL GRANDE

— Elaine, Rhode Island This is a very good question. The short answer: Yes, you can get a plumbing fixture that functions as a toilet and a bidet. The ones I’ve seen are the new wave of electronic toilets, packed with great features. Not only do these computerized toilets provide motionactivated “hands-free” seat-lifting and automatic flushing, the options can include: ■ Full “top to bottom” bidet washing features; ■ Integrated hot-air blow-drying;

Before you buy toilet features, compare the price of a new toilet and a bidet toilet seat against the price of the more expensive electronic toilet. Then make your decision.

HOLMES: Herb oils the key element in maximizing food’s flavor Continued from 4H tion with a standard garden fertilizer (6-0-6 if available), five ounces of fertilizer per 10 feet of row, should be employed bi-monthly after March 15 until Sept. 15. Loamy soils are desirable, and gardeners may elect to add organic matter to enhance soil conditions prior to planting. Special consideration should be given to the location and care of a few of the herbs that are somewhat sensitive to soil moisture conditions.Sage, rosemary and thyme require a well-drained, slightly moist soil; parsley, chervil and mint grow best on soils retaining considerable moisture. Herb seed and planting stock may be obtained from a number of established herb gardens and seedsmen, as well as from many vegetableseed mail-order firms.

Seed of the more common herbs (sage, dill, fennel, parsley, celery and chive) can be obtained from local seed retailers, while the less common ones can be purchased only from those specializing in savory herbs. A primary goal of many herb crops is about how these ingredients will enhance the flavor of meals. Various parts of the plant — seeds, leaves, flowering tops and even roots of herbs — are used for flavoring purposes, and it is largely the oils in the plant parts that are the key element in maximizing flavor. Care must be taken to harvest the product at the right time, cure it properly and store it correctly so that flavor-rich oils are not lost. Tender young leaves can be gathered and used fresh at any time during the season, but for later use they should be

harvested when the plants begin to flower, and should be washed in cold water and thoroughly drained before drying. Tender leaf herbs (basil, costmary, tarragon, lemon balm and the mints) have a high moisture content and must be dried rapidly away from light if they are to retain their green color. A well-ventilated, darkened room is required to satisfactorily process these products. Those herbs that are less succulent (sage, rosemary, thyme and summer savory) can be partially dried in the sun without affecting their flavor, but avoid over-exposure. If seeds, rather than leaves, are the desired product, harvest when the plant is mature, when the plant color turns from green to brown or gray. Cure seeds in an airy room several days

Every time I use a sink or flush a toilet it takes forever for the water to drain and then there is a gurgling sound like the water is being sucked out of the drain. A neighbor who has done some remodeling work said I needed to have the drains cleaned by a plumber, but there never has been a blockage in the sewers. What do you think is the problem? Depending on the age of your home, you might have a drain trap that is S-shaped, which can siphon the drains dry when the water is released from the sink. Sometimes you can hear a gurgling noise as air enters the drain through the stopper to allow the system to drain. When I hear a gurgling noise I start looking for a venting system for the sink, toilet or tub. To drain, there must be an open vent pipe located above the sink or toilet to allow air to enter the drains so the water can flow freely. There are mechanical vents, which can be installed under a sink, but these do not work well for a toilet due to the volume of water that is drained with each flush. The vent has to be higher than the appliance drain. It’s easy for you to see if

initially, and finish them by drying a day or two in full sun. As soon as leaves or seeds are dry, clean them by separating any stems and other foreign matter and pack them in airsealed containers to prevent loss of the oils that are essential to good flavor. Store containers in a dark closet to prevent loss of green color. Herbs offer new opportunities to enhance landscapes while providing new tastes to everyday meals. The University of Florida offers “Herbs in the Florida Garden,” Circular 570, which may be obtained online at edis. ifas.ufl.edu, for more detailed information on the production.

DWIGHT BARNETT

A:

When I hear a gurgling noise I start looking for a venting system for the sink, toilet or tub. the plumbing is vented. Go outside the home and look at the roof to see if there are open plumbing pipes extending above the roofline. These are plumbing vents, which are necessary for proper drainage and for the release of sewer gases. There should be a vent pipe near the bathroom or bathrooms and near the kitchen. The vents could be blocked with leaves, nests or even a pest trying to find a home. Have a plumber check the vents for blockage. If there are no vents, a plumber will need to install a proper venting system to alleviate your problems. This may require opening a wall in a bathroom or bedroom to install a vent pipe. If you have S-shaped traps under the sinks, have the plumber rework the drains to a P-shape to prevent a dry drain trap, which could allow sewer odors to enter the home.

HOT PROPERTY

House buyer must have liked Ryan Phillippe’s tricked-out home Los Angeles Times

hether it was the two-story entry hall that doubled as a gym or the 60-foot swimming pool with underwater speakers, Ryan Phillippe’s trickedout home in Hollywood Hills West enticed a buyer to shell out $6 million. Still, that Phillippe wasn’t enough to spare the actor from the pain of the housing bust. Public records show that Phillippe bought the property for $7.175 million in 2008,

W

after his eight-year marriage to actress Reese Witherspoon ended. The five-bedroom, 6½-bathroom house contains 7,600 square feet of living space. Features include a media room, separate guest or office space and a sauna. The more than half an acre of grounds include a pool-spa entertainment area and an outdoor kitchen. Phillippe, 38, starred in “The Lincoln Lawyer” (2011), “Setup” (2011) and “The Bang Bang Club” (2010). ■■■

Actress Maria Bello listed her Craftsman home in Venice, Calif., for sale at $1.85 million and within 10

days it was in escrow. Built in 1915 and set behind gates in a walkstreet area, the house is painted blue with red doors and windows and yellow accents. Features include a wood-burning fireplace, a front veranda, three bedrooms and 2½ bathrooms. There is a lawn, patio space and a singlecar garage. Bello, 45, has been on the TV series “Touched” (2012-13) and “Prime Suspect” (2011-12). ■■■

The estate of Micheline Muselli Lerner, a former wife of lyricist and playwright Alan Jay Lerner, is on the market in Hollywood Hills West at

LOS ANGELES TIMES

The estate of Micheline Muselli Lerner in the Hollywood Hills West neighborhood of Los Angeles is listed for $8.9 million. $8.9 million. The French-style house, designed by noted architect John Elgin Woolf and built in 1939, sits behind

gates and hedges on a 1.4-acre promontory with city and ocean views. Features include a center hall, four fireplaces, an

office, maid’s quarters, five bedrooms, five bathrooms and 3,776 square feet of living space. Muselli Lerner, who died last year, became an attorney at 20 in France and worked with the Resistance as a criminal defense lawyer during the German occupation. She and Lerner met after she came to New York in 1957 on business. Three-time Academy Award winner Lerner is remembered for his work on such musicals as “My Fair Lady,” “Camelot” and “Brigadoon.” He died in 1986 at 67.

The market is rocking and rolling, RIGHT NOW! Every REALTOR® I speak with expresses the difficulty in finding enough homes to show their current buyers and the trend is getting worse. The February Monthly Market Report shows a 15% decline in inventory from 2012 and with a 57.3% increase in pending sales that equals lost of demand and an ever shrinking supply for the future. The great news for sellers is the “Median Sales Price” has increased 17.6% and our “Months Supply of Inventory” is currently 9.6 months, a decrease of 19.2% over 2012. Real estate can be a game of trying to time your move correctly. However waiting for your current home to increase in price could cost you more in the long run. If you are waiting for your home price to rise, it also means the price of the new homes in the market are on the rise too. According to data from the Mortgage Bankers Association, mortgage rates are expected to reach 4.4% in the next 12 months and the 20-year average could possibly hit as high as 6.5%. If you bought in the past few years, at the bottom of the market, you should have some good equity that could be applied to a new home purchase. If you bought during the boom- in the past 5-7 years- you may have to wait a few more years before you can sell and move up or down. Don’t wait and contact your local REALTOR® today for a “Market Analysis” on your home and a list of current available homes for sale in areas you desire. Interest rates will not stay low forever and every percentage point increase will cost you more money each and every month.

DEFINITIONS Jumbo Mortgages—A home loan that exceeds the $417,000 Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac limit. Annual Percentage Rate (APR)—A yearly rate of interest that includes fees and other costs paid to aquire the loan.

This should be long enough to cover your closing date. 1/1, 3/1, 5/1, 7/1and 10/1 ARMs— Common adjustable-rate mortgages. With an adjustable rate mortgage the interest rate is set for an initial period and may change at specified time intervals. For instance, the 3/1 ARM has a set rate of interest for the first three years and then adjusts annually based on the financial index specified in the contract. 7/23 and 5/25 Mortgages—Common adjustable mortgages with a one-time rate adjustmentat the end of the initial period. The 7/23 loan has the same rate for the first 7 years and then adjusts to the rate that will be in effect for the remainig 23 years. Balloon—A mortgage that has level monthly payments that will fully amortize it over a stated term (e.g. 30 years) but which provides for a lump-sum payment to be due at the end of an earlier specified term (e.g. 10 years).

Three spring tablescape ideas to help celebrate new beginnings Scripps Howard News Service

here is something magical about eating together, isn’t there? This spring, connect with people you love over a meal in your home. And, of course, you’ll want a tablescape beautifully dressed for the occasion. Here are some ideas to get you started. TABLE 1: BEAUTIFUL BLOOMS A delightful tablescape bursting with charm — fresh and light, yet infused with enough layers to make it intriguing. Blue, white and yellow just sing when they are brought together, especially in spring. For this treatment, we decided to soften up a formal table and formal glass hurricane by weav-

T

ing in fanciful accessories. Try having a wild-fern wreath encircling the hurricane. Blue-andwhite transferware china looks fabulous with a bohemian yellow salad plate sliced in. When I create place settings, I like to make them tall and dramatic with a stack of interesting dishes and a surprise topper. Consider decorating the summit with intriguing ceramic vases, which serve as unusual napkin holders. These little vases also look sensational holding a few flowers, like

three daylilies. Pretty stemware is a wonderful addition. So as not to distract from the simplicity of the table, we went with clear glass. But blue goblets also would be lovely. Think about having little yellow flower-shaped votive holders tucked in by each place setting. When I decorate tables, I like to weave in little surprises. Votive cups, little sunbursts of color, could hold a candle or be used as salt cellars. TABLE 2: FUN AND FRESH You cannot miss with green and white on a tabletop, especially in spring. It’s fresh, fun and infused with energy and excitement. For this option, we went for a contemporary feel bursting with pep,

then shook things up a bit by working in a few organic elements, like wicker chargers. Get ready — gold is back! A surprising glass plate edged in gold adds a bit of glam to our hip place setting. To top off this relatively simple stack of plates, we picked funky little lidded pots. You could put a battery-operated candle inside for a dramatic presentation for a late-night meal. Or, insert some candy for guests to enjoy after the meal. I love to dress up the chandelier with greens and trimmings. Or if there is no light fixture, you also can suspend decorative elements over the table. For this treatment, we took spring wreaths, turned

which not only gave us loads of saturated color, they also brought in interesting finishes and shapes. A square white plate is a favorite of mine. A zippy green charger is melamine and super-inexpensive. Cloche-covered risers are drama queens. Perch one on top of a place setting and the scene just became magical. We put a fun little faux plant under the bell jar on our table. But you also could use them to hold a decorated cupcake for dessert.

them on the horizontal, then hung them like a light fixture over the table. TABLE 3: TRADITION REVISITED I have friends who are lucky enough to have inherited china from their mothers and grandmothers, lovely old patterns with intricate designs. But they are stymied by how to use these vintage pieces to create a more contemporary design on their tabletop. We took up that challenge on a romantic table that has the charm of yesteryear and the energy of today. Our first step toward giving a floral china pattern a newer vibe was to pair it with some of today’s hottest colors: apple green and coral. We scored with our stack of chargers,
