RATE OF BANKRUPTCIES 15 15 12 12
10 52 weeks ago Last week
A Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows the debtor to retain certain exempt property, but the debtor’s remaining property is gathered and sold by a trustee from which creditors will receive payment. It may also be used by businesses which wish to terminate their business. A Chapter 13 bankruptcy enables debtors, through court supervision and protection, to propose and carry out a repayment plan under which creditors are paid, in full or in part, in installments over a three-year period. During that time, debtors are prohibited from starting or continuing collection efforts. The following bankruptcies declared by Calhoun County residents were recorded by U.S. Bankruptcy Court Northern District of Alabama last week:
• Freda G. Hawkins, Cheaha Drive, Oxford • Erika L. Smith, Main Street, Oxford • Jon Paul Collier and Jessica Nicole Collier, Cheaha Drive, Oxford • Bonnie Lynn Allsup, Roy Webb Road, Jacksonville • Lawrence E. Clark and Erica D.

The ABCs of chalkboard paint and projects BY STACY DOWNS McClatchy Newspapers
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Chalkboards may be old-school, but they’re the newest accent in home decor. “Look what I made,” said Kelly Sims of Liberty, Mo., holding up her smartphone during an unofficial show and tell during a chalkboard paint class at Be Here Now, a store in Independence, Mo. She flipped through pics: A picnic basket with a chalkboard top for playfully listing its contents. An old mirror converted into a message board. The fronts of a few kitchen cabinets for meal planning and writing quotes. Sims finds pieces in thrift stores, garage sales and even the trash, then transforms them with chalkboard paint into gifts and home-entertaining accessories. Here’s an array of chalkboard paint information: Apply paint thickly with a foam craft brush for small pieces or a regular paintbrush for furniture and walls. For glass bottles, apply thinly. Spray cans of chalkboard paint are available. Black — as in blackboard — is the most typical color of chalkboard paint, but it can be any color. Chalkboard markers, available at craft stores and at Chalk Ink (chalkinkworldstore.com), are an alternative to dusty, smearing chalk. Decals with chalkboard surfaces are another way to go if you don’t want to commit to paint. Large-format shapes include rectangles, squares, airplanes
and coffee cups, to name a few at All Modern (allmodern.com). Little labels are available at Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery at Staples (staples.com). Erasers like you had in elementary school are adorable. But if you want the surface to be super clean, see Letter T (clean it with a damp cloth). Furniture, such as the top of a desk or a dining table, works well for chalkboard paint. But the paint can be used on the entire piece. Artist Tiffini Killgore painted a dresser with chalkboard paint and wrote the names of Kansas City neighborhoods on the drawers in chalk. Good gifts can be made with chalkboard paint. Paint an empty wine bottle, et voila! A vase. Great gift tags, too, can be crafted. The best part: they’re reusable. How to mix your own chalkboard paint: buy your favorite color of latex paint, says interior designer Meredith Martin (she used a no-VOC variety). Buy unsanded grout ($3 from a hardware store). For a gallon of paint, mix in a quart of grout. (The ratio should be two-thirds paint to one-third grout). Stir. Add drops of water to make it thinner. After painting, allow to dry an hour. Often only one coat is needed. Idea for parties: use a chalkboard-style oilcloth as a runner on the table. Give guests chalk or chalk pens and tell them to go to town. Jot down anything on a chalkboard surface. It can be erased. Kraft paper can be covered with chalkboard paint to create a tablecloth. Great for writing
pairing suggestions for tasting parties. Let your kids draw on the walls. No problem with a chalkboard or chalkboard paint. Make a Monday-throughFriday message board out of an old five-panel door using chalkboard paint in the panels. New idea: painting the surface of a deck with chalkboard paint. Obvious choice: cheese trays. Not so obvious: your car. (We’ve spotted a VW Bug). Pictures on Pinterest.com are inspiring us. We especially love walls with chalk drawings, such as a family tree in a nursery. A hint for precise outlines: rent a projector and create a transparency at a print shop. Quotes on chalkboards instant inspiration. Resources for chalkboard paint include craft stores, home warehouses, paint shops and Be Here Now, Independence, Mo., 816-461-7819, b-here-now.com. Be Here Now also sells chalkboard paint in a variety of colors by the pint, $15. Spray surfaces with polyurethane to make chalk-art creations permanent. Tired of the mess or the design? The best way to clean it is with a damp cloth. Understand that when you apply chalkboard paint, it goes on gritty. When it dries, sand surfaces with 150-grit sandpaper before you first write on them. Variety. Think beyond white chalk on a blackboard. Chalk comes in a crayon-assortment of colors these days; Crayola has a 52-count pack.
