Some sweet inspiration Candy corn yields festive decor ideas Kim Cook THE ASSOCIATED PRESS One of the most enduring of Halloween icons, candy corn is now over 130 years old. Back in the early 1900s, when the little striped treat was one of a variety of fondant novelties crafted into shapes like turnips, chestnuts and leaves, workmen had to run buckets of hot, sugary slurry back and forth across moulds to make it. Today, companies like Jelly Belly and Brach’s produce over 35 million pounds of candy corn — most of it around Halloween. “One of the reasons candy corn has remained so popular is that it’s a ‘limited edition.’ This is really the only time of year you can easily get it, and that limited availability makes it attractive,” says Susan Whiteside, spokeswoman

for the National Confectioner’s Association. Candy corn has become not only a staple of the trickor-treat bowl, but an inspiration for seasonal decor. Whether you’re setting a festive scene or just indulging a nostalgic affection, there are lots of ways to use candy corn. You can even make some yourself — both edible and non-edible versions. Candy corn kernels have more visual impact en masse than individually. An array of clear lidded jars filled to the brim looks wonderful. Dump a bag or two in the bottom of a hurricane or large vase; add a pillar candle, Halloween ornament, or twisty branches painted black or gold and you’ve got a great centrepiece. Woman’s Day (www.womansday.com) magazine suggests hot-glueing kernels to Styrofoam balls for colourful bowl fillers. Candy corn topiaries can be made by studding foam or paper cones, adding stems and placing in pots. Wreaths made of rows of candy, hung with a black

And while you’ve got the glue out, consider adding a few candy corns to twigs to create candy “blossoms.” Or, if you’re patient, try stringing kernels into a garland for the mantel or door frame. Making faux candy corn is easy, with a few craft materials in the signature colours of orange, yellow and white. Wool retailer Lion Brand provides free online patterns to crochet stuffed toys and little carry bags. (www.lionbrand.com) Get out the paint pots and paint the top and base of orange traffic cones for clever

Halloween-night driveway markers. Better Homes & Gardens’ website (www.bhg. com) offers instructions on how to make a door decoration by cutting a foam cone in half lengthwise, painting it and adding dried fall plant material. Spray-paint gourds and pumpkins for more entryway decor. Ready-made decor with the candy corn motif is easy to find; look for string lights, votive holders, throw pillows and fabric. Finally, if you’re up for making your own treats, Food Network (www.foodnetwork.com) star Alton Brown has a recipe online. Evoke the idea of candy corn by creating tricolour gelatin or sherbet parfaits, and topping pretzels or cupcakes with tinted icing. Nabisco is selling a limited run of Oreos with candycorn-coloured filling. Jamie Lothridge, a middle-school teacher and avid baker in Toledo, Ohio, who blogs about her passion at www.mybakingaddiction. com has already repurposed the Oreos by turning them into truffles.

Women’s Day

Create a candy corn centrepiece using a hot glue gun and a bag of candy corn along with a Styrofoam ball or cone shape. Instructions are available at www.womansday.com. “As a recipe developer, new ingredients get my creativity flowing. I’ve long been a candy corn fanatic, and autumn

is my favourite season, so making a recipe with all my favourite things is kind of a dream come true,” she says.

C o m m e n ta r y

Housing industry, city linked in spurring growth Stu Niebergall On behalf of the residential construction industry, I want to take this time to thank all of those candidates who let their name stand in Regina’s civic election on Oct. 24. I would also like to congratulate all of the new city councillors — Barbara Young, Bob Hawkins, Shawn Fraser, Bryon Burnett, and Jerry Flegel. Congratulations to the incumbents who have been re-elected — John Findura, Wa d e M u r r ay, S h a r ro n Bryce, Mike O’Donnell, and Terry Hinks, and congratulations to our new mayor, Michael Fougere. Our industry has been watching this election very

closely. That is because both the roles of the residential construction industry and the City of Regina are very connected when it comes to fostering and contributing to the continued growth of our city. As our city grows, our industry plays a vital role in attracting new companies and skilled and qualified workers to our city by creating the new neighbourhoods and building the new houses that many new citizens will call home. In turn, our industry contributes back into the economy by creating jobs and wages. In 2011, for example, the residential construction industry, with the creation of 1,694 new housing units in Regina CMA, generated over 4,900 jobs in new home construction, renovation and related fields, which translated into $250 million in wages that showed up as purchases right across the whole regional economy.

The municipal government controls and monitors such areas as land supply, infrastructure investment, development fees, other building and development charges, the timing of development application approvals, and building permit approvals, and taxes — items that directly impact Regina’s growth and development — items that directly impact our industry. Home building and development are essential components of growth, and growth is the prime contributing factor to prosperity. Growth and prosperity go hand in hand. In order to foster continued prosperity in our city, an open and collaborative working relationship between our industry and the city is essential. One of the No. 1 issues that arose throughout the civic election campaign was housing affordability. Our association is very clear on this issue. Municipal gov-

ernment policies can and do have a negative impact on housing affordability, and the two areas that must be watched closely here are government imposed costs and restrictive land use policies. Let’s take a look at one of these areas — restrictive land use policies. There are those who are suggesting that Regina’s current development is being characterized by urban sprawl — with our city spreading outward into a low density, auto dependent and unsustainable future. The solution often presented to combat urban sprawl is restriction on the urban growth boundary creating more compact cities. In other words, growth that focuses strictly on infill development. However, if land use policies were to restrict the development of land during this period of economic prosperity, in-migration to our city, and increased

demand for housing, this wo u l d h ave t h e c o n s e quence of driving up the price of housing, negatively impacting housing affordability. The cost of housing relative to income is a key determining factor in quality of life and therefore in making our city an attractive to place to live. As inmigration is an essential component of growth, the ultimate consequence of restricting development, then, would be to dampen our economic growth. This same argument applies regarding delays in making new land available for development. These delays at a time when demand is so high, would have the same disastrous consequences. We want to ensure that proponents of restrictive land policies understand that in trying to solve one issue through urban containment, another issue is

created — driving up the price of housing. Rather than restricting growth on the urban fringe, is it not better to consider how to make a more dispersed urban future workable and sustainable? The residential construction industry, represented by the Regina & Region Home Builders Association, is ready to work closely with municipal policy and decision makers to ensure that housing affordability, and the continued growth and prosperity of our city are underlying considerations in all decisions related to housing and development in Regina. Let’s keep Regina growing. We look forward to a positive and productive working relationship, with Regina’s new city council.

Niebergall is executive director of the Regina & Region Home Builders Association.

Playground safety issues anything but child’s play

Toothpaste eats cork odours

Make it Right

Playing outdoors is an important part of growing up, and it helps children develop strong social skills and self confidence. Part of our job as parents, grandparents, guardians or caregivers is to make sure we provide safe environments where kids can play. I remember when I was a kid the playground was the epicentre of fun. You could run, jump, climb and swing until you were completely exhausted. But with all that activity it’s no wonder playgrounds are also a popular place for kids to get hurt. Bruises, bumps and scratches are all part of growing up, and they happen all the time. But the problem is when the injuries are more serious, such as broken bones or head trauma. That’s why safety measures need to be taken to prevent kids from being seriously hurt on playgrounds. In Canada we have the Canadian Standards Association (CSA), which provides safety guidelines on everything from gas fireplaces to electrical safety. Since 1990 the CSA has been providing standards to help keep kids safe on public playgrounds. This includes information on materials, proper installation, equipment requirements, safety inspections and maintenance. These guidelines get revised and updated based on new research. But they aren’t law; they’re voluntary. That means on a national level there’s no one going around inspecting

for instance, in between guardrails or ladder rungs. That’s why openings on playgrounds should be less than 3.5 inches (8.9 cm). The most common injury on Canadian playgrounds is falling. So we used the most impact-resilient wood fibre we could find that would be safe for children (they could even put it in their mouths, but I’m not recommending this). The wood fibre is also a fire retardant so it won’t burn. According to the CSA the required depth for the protective surface area is a minimum of 12 inches (300 mm). But we put in 18 inches (457 mm) just to be sure. Overhead clearance is also an issue for most playgrounds — but not the one we built. Instead of sticking to the 5-foot-3-inch (160-cm) minimum, we built a 6-foot5-inch (196-cm) clearance. It was important to me to build a playground that was easy for parents to navigate through or get to their kids quickly, in case anything happened. I also wanted parents to be able to play and run through the structure with their kids without worrying about bumping their heads. That meant making the overhead clearance high enough for most adults. The big difference between building code and playground safety regulations is that you’re dealing with smaller users, so you have to be more aware of the issues they face. With the right pros you can make almost any structure safe for children. And when it comes to their safety, there’s no playing around.

Q: I was given a set of glass spice bottles that haven’t been used for a while. The tops are cork, and I can’t get the smell out of them. Some smell pretty strong. I will be so grateful for any help you can give me. A: Squeeze toothpaste into each bottle and fill with water. Replace the corks and shake well. Leave for one or two days and then pour out and rinse. Air dry; this solution should take care of the smell. Q: I have a walnut colour wooden floor. I clean it with half vinegar–half water. Still the footsteps look misty (dusty) and the shine is gone. The floor is only a couple of years old. A: It’s best to choose a cleaner that doesn’t leave

residue behind. It is a good idea to mop with vinegar and water once in a while but don’t be afraid to switch from one solution to another. One of my favourite formulas for hardwood floors involves using tea. This homemade floor cleaner has been around for years. The tannic acid in tea gives wood floors a great shine. Brew a pot of tea with three tea bags. Let cool and add to a bucket of water and one-quarter tea-

spoon dish soap. Dampen mop and scrub. In my opinion, the key to a great looking floor is to clean well and dry immediately. You can also use a sponge mop or Rubbermaid Spray and mop.

playgrounds to make sure they meet CSA standards. Instead, we have regulations — and depending on where you live in Canada, these regulations differ. For example, in some parts of Canada daycare centre operators can’t get an operating licence if their playground doesn’t meet the CSA Standard. This past summer I was involved in a rebuild project that was definitely “out of the box” for me. We rebuilt a playground in Toronto’s High Park. It was the first time many of us had ever built a playg round. We might be experts in construction but we weren’t experts in playground safety. So I did what I always do: I brought in the pros. Playground safety inspectors have the right skills and training to evaluate how safe a playground is. We had an inspector visit every couple days of the build to look over everything. Usually they come at the end of the build, but on a tight schedule it was easier for them to be there to catch potential problems and correct them immediately instead of waiting until the end. Luckily in Canada playground deaths are rare. But when they happens they’re usually caused by scarves or strings on clothing getting caught as kids go down a slide, swing or jump off a platform. It’s also a greater risk in colder climates where kids tend to wear more clothing with drawstrings. That’s why buying playground equipment is specific to each region — what’s safe in the US might not be safe in Canada. The most serious playground injury is related to drawstring entanglement. Another big one is entrapment, which is when kids get trapped in small spaces,

Families trade places to find right living space Deborah L. Cohen Reuters CHICAGO — Ed Zwirner and his wife, Alison Loeppert, recently bought a historic house in the Chicago suburbs without brokers’ fees, tight moving deadlines, undetected defects or other stresses that accompany one of life’s biggest purchases. At the same time, Loeppert’s parents made a similar move. T h e s e c r e t ? T h e t wo couples exchanged homes: the teachers and their two young sons gained more square footage and a big yard on a residential street. The empty nesters traded unneeded extra space for the easy maintenance of condominium living within short walking distance of an attractive downtown and lakefront. “It was the perfect solution for them and us,” said Loeppert’s mother, Alice Loeppert. “Our intention was always to have that house available to our own children.” According to the U.S. National Association of Realtors, there are no firm numbers on how many American homeowners are swapping homes with older or younger relatives, but experts say it’s a trend that could take off as the baby boomer generation moves progressively into smaller homes as they retire. “It’s (age) 65-plus where you really see downsizing occur,” said Walter Molony, an NAR spokesman, citing statistics from a 2011 study. One of four sellers, he said, is seeking a smaller property. A swap can benefit both parties, saving hefty realtors’ commissions and other fees, and assuring

Ed Zwirner and Alison Loeppert traded homes with their parents, skirting fees and saving time house shopping. both sides the comfort of familiar turf. Still, it could quickly become a minefield without careful financial planning and consideration of the impact on other family members. Realizing they needed more space but dreading wasted weekends at open houses, Zwirner and Loepp e r t l a s t f a l l p ro p o s e d buying the roomy stucco bungalow that Loeppert’s parents had lived in for more than 20 years. In many ways, it was the ideal solution and holds promise for other families looking to make a similar move. Here’s how they did it. In one day, they sold their vintage, three-bedroom, two-bath condo for $300,000 and purchased the house for $419,000. The deal hinged on two individual sales, with the younger couple financing the difference with

Edward Zwirner and his wife Alison Loeppert with their children Griffin, second on right, and Lucien enjoying their home in Evanston, Ill. a mortgage. That allowed Loeppert’s father, who was entering retirement, to take as much money away from the transaction as possible. “(The condo) had lost so much money that it was in the price range of condos my in-laws were looking for,” Zwirner said. “They were able to cash out of the

house the way they needed. And the loss for us was cushioned on the way out.” Though they avoided brokers’ fees, they still paid for appraisals and attorneys’ costs at closing. And Zwirner conceded there was more paperwork than he and his wife had ever imagined. The U.S. Internal Reve-

nue Service tends to scrutinize inter-family real estate transactions extra closely because of the potential for fraud, making it essential to carefully document everything and get fair market appraisals of each property prior to the sale, said Michael Eisenberg, a Los Angeles-based certified public accountant and personal financial specialist. That’s especially important if either side plans to offer the other a break on price, a common occurrence in these types of deals. Tax considerations vary widely. Even so, adjustments to these arrangements aren’t always easy. Besides the financial changes that come with a different size home, such as landscaping costs for upsizing families and condo fees for some who trade down, these transactions can have long-lasting

emotional ramifications, said Eisenberg. For instance, how will each side handle seeing their decor abandoned to suit different tastes? Will other siblings harbour jealousy over the sale of the family home to a brother or sister? “This assumes you get along with the people you’re swapping with,” said Bryan Gillette, a human resources consultant in Pleasanton, California, who did a home exchange deal with his parents in 2008. He and his wife traded t h e i r 1 , 7 0 0 s q u a re - fo o t house for a much larger one his father had custom built with the help of Gillette’s older brother. They bypassed selling the properties, instead opting for a method known as parent-to-child transfer. Despite the name, the transfer applies as a child-to-parent transfer as well. The younger couple paid the difference on the value of the larger home, roughly $250,000, with cash and a mortgage. Because of California tax provisions, this route allowed them to maintain a low tax base on the properties. “There were no regrets at all,” said Gillette, adding that early access to the bigger house allowed his family to move in stages as well as begin painting and making other modifications. For Alison Loeppert, the emotional benefits of such a transaction are priceless. She re gularly views a makeshift char t on the moulding in the dining room of her former condo. That’s where she and her husband marked their sons’ progress in height. “I don’t think my parents would ever paint over this,” she said.

Q: For the last four years, my husband and I have lived in our century home with one small closet in the bedroom. I’ve been using our spare bedroom as a second closet. We’re transforming this room into a nursery. I can move my clothes to the basement, but I’m worried that I will freeze while getting dressed after my morning shower. We were quoted $8,500 for a built-in closet. I had no idea that built-ins cost that much. Any ideas? A: Custom millwork does cost big bucks. According to contractor Colin Hunter (919reno.com), “some custom closets can be more intricate than kitchens because the millwork and (construction of) drawers in floor-to-ceiling closets can be labour intensive and tricky to install.” A good contractor will make a new closet look original to your home. A customized closet also adds value to your home. Closets are big deals for prospective buyers. Realtor Jimmy Vlachos of Core Realty (jimmyvlachos. blogspot.ca) says: “Buyers definitely see a lack of closet space as problematic.” These days, we have loads of clothes and bed linens that the small closets of older homes in the city can’t accommodate. “Buyers want built-in closets where they can keep their clothing and accessories accessible, organized and in sight. (By installing new closets) you’re fixing a problem that some buyers just don’t want to deal with or may not know how to solve,” Vlachos says. One option I saw in a wardrobe stylist’s condo was

Samantha Pynn

Classic-style panelled Pax doors from Ikea help create an elegant closet in a small bedroom. an entire wall of rails and shelves hidden behind pretty white curtains, trimmed in navy ribbon. I’ve always thought of this as a temporary solution, but the stylist’s curtains were hung on a hospital track system so the look was clean and tidy. If you like this option, avoid drapes like red velvet; you don’t want your room to feel like the curtains could part at any moment and a production of Our Town could commence. The stylist’s drapery panels blended with the white walls and room’s blue accents so the wall of fabric didn’t feel like theatre curtains. Another alter native to custom millwork is to add a row of classic-style panelled Pax doors from Ikea like my friend Tamara Robbins Griffith did. The look is consistent with the rest of her

home’s architecture. To make the store-bought doors feel stately, she added heavy die-cast door knobs from Rocky Mountain Hardware (rockymountainhardware.com). If there are any gaps between the doors and the ceiling, have your contractor make the unit look builtin with drywall or crown moulding. The starting cost for modular built-ins like Tamara’s is approximately, $1,500. Avoid storing your clothes in the basement, if you can. I have a hunch that running down the stairs for socks will drive you bananas. And, with a baby on the way, you’ll want to make things in your life as convenient as possible.

Compact, timeless home a winner

Account for true cost of renos

Instead, they have a theatre room downstairs where the kids hang out. They also wanted a functional kitchen — but not a large one. “We have a young family, and friends with young families, so we wanted a space that worked for adults and kids.” One of the reasons the home seems so breezy and relaxing is its soft, seaside, neutral palette featuring blond oak floors and soft tones on walls and counters. Designer Catherine Fell, of Design One Stevens Interiors in Victoria, said the goal was to keep the palette light and open feeling, because of the small size of the house. The two-tone coffered ceiling in the dining room gives the area definition and a little pizzazz, while greyed-down, stained wood cabinetry on the kitchen island and cloud white on the others team well with concrete-grey Caesarstone countertops (a manmade quartz) and stainless appliances. Erika loves her large farm sink. A painted sideboard, handed down from her grandfather, stands in the dining area, connecting with the island through colour. The powder room is small, with a snow-white Cambria countertop and nine-inch mitred front to make it look deep; the counter is narrow, the sink juts and doors have ribbed glass. The master ensuite is a spacious surprise. Two pewter-framed mirrors reflect lots of natural light, countertops are white and walls are classic grey. Marble floors are heated and there’s loads of storage. It’s a house with almost everything the Taylors need, including a roomy laundry area. “All we need now is a wine cellar,” quipped Graham. British Columbia land-use analyst James Duncan, who lives next door and created the small, two-lot subdivision, says he’s had great feedback from the city about the two houses. “It took a long while for approvals and I think they were worried at first, but I teamed up with Ron Egli, who is very experienced. We squeezed out inches here and there and he was great to work with on both these houses. It’s a perfect fit.”

Grania Litwin Victoria Times Colonist VICTORIA, B.C. — On a balmy Indian summer afternoon, there’s nothing Graham and Erika Taylor enjoy more than loading up their children’s wagon with a hibachi and some food, tucking towels and paddle boards under their arms and meeting friends at the beach for a picnic. Both native Victorians love the outdoorsy, ocean-going lifestyle, so when it came to buying a house for their fledgling family earlier this year, they knew just what they wanted. “This house has a perfect location, close to wonderful beaches, great parks and good schools,” said Graham Taylor, a hospital administrator. The two executives’ checklist included a low-maintenance home and garden, proximity to other young families, a close-knit neighbourhood and versatile interior spaces, said Erika, a human resources director for the provincial government. They found it all in a brand-new Fairfield home built by Ron Egli, who won a prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award at the Vancouver Island CARE awards last month. The house, just a block from the beach, was also nominated for best singlefamily detached spec home of more than 2,000 square feet — a category Egli has won several times before. His company, Ron Egli Construction and Design Ltd., has built local homes for 30 years and he usually has his finger on the pulse of what people want. Ironically, he marketed this house with a very different buyer in mind. “I thought it would be perfect for a retired couple who wanted less garden and house to care for, or maybe an executive without children. But here it is being lived in by a vibrant young family,” Egli said. The three-storey house has 850 square feet on each level — totalling 2,500 — and is on a 3,000-square-foot in-fill lot. “It’s a good project because the house doesn’t look big, but there are actually four bedrooms and four bathrooms,” Egli said. “It’s a very compact design that fits into the neighbourhood because of its traditional style, correct proportions, the simple, classic woodwork and trim.” Egli, who admires historic architect Sam Maclure, aims

Neutral colours both outside and inside give the home a breezy and relaxing appeal.

A coffered ceiling in muted colours gives the dining room an elegant look. to create timeless homes that never look dated. “In 50 years you won’t know when this house was built.” Egli said buyers are increasingly interested in smaller, easy-care residences, close to the downtown core. “Everybody wants this: the public, municipalities, councillors.” “When we first moved in, our kids were quite upset we didn’t have any (grass),” said Erika with a chuckle — so they added a tiny patch of artificial turf for them to sprawl on. It’s about the size of an area rug and now everyone is happy, especially Graham.

“I grew up in a large lot and spent hours and hours every week mowing the lawn. My wife and I both work and decided we’d rather travel, ride our bikes or paddle board (than cut grass).” Two other families on adjacent lots have young children, too. “There are kids playing in backyards all down the block,” Graham said. “There is such a strong sense of community here and schools are close, so our kids can walk or ride their bikes,” said Erika. Graham likes the home’s flow and versatility: “We plan to recycle the den in a few years, as our family evolves, turning it from a TV room

into an office.” A couple of houses ago, they had a formal dining room, but Erika noted “we ate at the kitchen island or, rather tragically, the coffee table watching television. So that experience changed our dynamic. “We didn’t want any formal dining room this time, no space that wasn’t used.”

Jim Yih Postmedia News Renovations can be a good investment, if they increase the value of your home. But sometimes, that big project may not be as financially rewarding as you hope. I recently sat down with Jenny (not her real name), who had spent over $100,000 renovating her home. Now she’s worried about how those renovations will affect her finances. In 2006, Jenny decided that putting money into her house was the best investment she could make. She began with a kitchen renovation that was over budget from the start. She ended up with a beautiful kitchen, but $30,000 less in savings. Jenny noticed that the living room and dining room carpet looked old next to the kitchen’s new tile. She decided to put in new hardwood flooring, paint the walls, replace the old windows, change the light fixtures, redo the fireplace and add a new built-in wall unit around the fireplace for her new big screen TV. This would cost another $50,000. She decided she would put this on her line of credit, which would cost her $208.33 per month. If she was already paying that much per month, she figured she might as well also renovate two bathrooms, the master bedroom, and replace the rest of the windows in the house, for a total cost of $72,000 or $300 per month. Jenny focused too much on the payment, which was interest only as opposed to the actual debt or the total cost of interest. The bigger problem is Jenny did not budget for $1,360 per month in payments. Instead, she thought she would just make the interest only payments and then she would tackle the principal from time to time, when she had extra money. Five years later, Jenny still had $58,000 left on the line of credit. This renovation proved to be very expensive.
