Community Market Day set for Saturday, May 7 The Community Market Place is a oneday event that is being held all over the community on Saturday, May 7. It begins at 9 a.m. and continues throughout the day. People who would still like to participate may still sign up on the Chamber website - www.uachamber.org. Anyone wishing to take advantage of all of the great sales throughout the community may go online to map their route.

We are ready for the sale and our business campaign is still going strong. Committee representatives have been going door to door visiting local businesses encouraging them to post their sales on the Chamber website and place posters promoting the event in their store front windows. Classified ads will continue to run in six surrounding communities promoting this event.

The response is amazing. Our local businesses welcome us with open arms and our larger businesses are contacting their corporate head quarters telling them what the Chamber is doing in Upper Arlington. Our community partners — The Upper Arlington City Schools and the UA Civic Association — are very supportive and are helping the Chamber spread the news

about this event. The school district is exploring the many possibilities for an educational tie-in for next year. The UA Civic Association is having their walk the weekend before and each participant has been informed about the event if there are questions. To learn more about the UA Civic Association and the many events they put on, please visit their website at www.UACA.org.

The UA Area Chamber has spread the word through multiple mediums including email chains, social networking, print advertising, internet and more. It has been a grassroots effort and the Chamber is thrilled with the response and continued interest that our residents and businesses have provided. Upper Arlington Community Market Place has launched! For information, call (614) 481-5710.

Chamber First Thursdays: An evening of mingling, eyewear On April 7, Riverside Eye Center had its first annual trunk show. It was an evening of fun and fashionable eyewear with plenty of mingling. Just imagine being able to see the latest trends in designer eyewear and speak directly with those who represent the company, not to mention an exclusive opportunity to save big time. This evening was a perfect example of mingling with the chamber community and bringing people closer to their new look. As we approach the warmer months we often think of renewal and rebirth. The grass is greener, the trees are regaining their lush leaves and the flowers are blooming: Spring is in the air. The same can be said about your eyewear. Spring is an excellent time to update your eyewear and im-

GLENDA SMITH, BS, LDO prove your look, especially since it is recommended to have your eyes examined once every year. Why not do it during the spring? When selecting your new eyewear, look for rich tones and bright interesting embellishments. The latest trends in eyewear, without a doubt, would have to be the “geek chic” look. Well hold on to your pocket protectors’and get ready for some slight modifications to this bold look. This season, expect to see fresh new takes on the ’50s inspired cat eye. Now let’s not forget about fit. Ask yourself, what good is a beautiful pair of glasses if they do not fit

properly? Especially with some of the new styles in eyewear, fit becomes very important. You may have been eyeballing Gucci’s new “geek chic style” for this season, and who would blame you, they are beautiful. These frames are made of premium plastic materials and brilliant metallic components. While these are all things you want in a high quality pair of eyeglasses, if fit is not taken into consideration it can take away from the alluring beauty for the frame and more importantly how fantastic you look in them. All this can be solved by simply consulting with your optician to ensure a good fit. Spring is in the air, so why not spring into your new look. We here at Riverside Eye Center are all

The spring real estate marOUG YAN ket in Upper Arlington looks a little different this year. Typically, after spring break, listing activity increases and for-sale signs pop up all over the city. Although there is a nice selection of homes on the market, the number of listing for the 2011 first quarter is down 23.8 percent, as per the Columbus Board of Realtors (CBR). The month of April has added 71 new UA listings since the first quarter analysis was released, but not enough to close the gap…yet. Upper Arlington is not alone in the decline of new listings. There has been a decline in all of central Ohio. The total inventory at the end of the first quarter is approximately 22 percent down from last year as per the CBR. The upside to this change is encouraging for Upper Arlington. Homeowners are beginning to “nest” and rebuild their reserves. Provided the “UA Amenity Package” continues to be attractive and listing activity does not surge, we should look for more price stabilization and maybe a modest increase in average sale prices. Already we are observing an increase in home improvements and remodeling projects for those who decided not to list their home for sale this spring. Fact: Over the past three years, Upper Arlington’s average home sale price has remained stable, with a small increase last year.

Chamber spotlight Tony & Krystin Macaluso Realtors at Coldwell Banker King Thompson (614) 778-4028 http://www.kingthompson.com/philip.macaluso What was your first job? Caddie at Scioto Country Club. What did you want to be when you grew up? I never really wanted to grow up, and in fact still struggle with this question. As a kid most of my family members owned their own businesses (Macaluso Vending, Macaluso Fruit Company, Jegs, Ohio Grain). I remember as a kid assuming that one day I would have my own company as well. I love the day-to-day challenges that fall on my shoulders that I get to find solutions to, and the interaction with clients and employees. What is on your iPod? There is a great mix all types of music — country, R&B, rock. Hitting random right now I get Dave Matthews, Guns n’Roses, the Schuers, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Counting Crows, 311, The Eagles, The Police, Naughty By Nature, Phish, OSU Band, and some how Cyndi Lauper (how did that get in there?). Who inspires you? My wife Krystin. The work that goes into running a house, especially my house, is truly inspiring. We have two sons (Brayden, 4 and Luke, almost 2) and she has a third (indicating himself). Running a home with three hurricanes constantly running through her life, I can only imagine the challenge to keep us all in line, clothed, fed and on task. On top of all that, she is the first to volunteer for any cause that needs her. She is a room mother at

preschool, she gives her time to the pleasure gild of Nationwide Children’s Hospital, and is on the Coldwell Banker King Thompson Foundation Board. On top of all, that she is a great Realtor and keeps our real estate business going strong. To do all that she does with the love that she shows us keeps me inspired. Favorite toy as a kid? Cars, trucks and sporting equipment. One thing you could not do to save your life? Spell. Spellcheck is one of my best friends, but most of the time it can’t even figure out what I’m trying to spell. What do you love most about your job? The people. Every day I get to meet new people, hear new stories, and solve new problems. There are so many great people in our community, and I enjoy getting the opportunity to meet then in my work with the chamber, with Macaluso Landscaping, and in my work as a Realtor with Coldwell Banker King Thompson.
