4-H’ers learning about plants through judging teams Small gold figurines used to style a bookshelf helps make the bookcase an attractive focal point. [DESIGN RECIPES]

All that glitters is gold (accents) By Cathy Hobbs Tribune News Service

Gold has long been associated with luxury and glamour. And it’s currently one of the hottest and most utilized finishes in home decor. Gold or brass accents remain more popular than ever and can serve as the perfect complement to your existing decor. When looking for ways to incorporate gold accents into your home, here are some basic design rules to keep in mind. Do: • Use gold as accents in accessory items such as toss pillows. • Consider infusing gold or brass accents through your use of artwork, either in the artwork itself or in the frame. • Consider using gold in a series of similar accent pieces such as a long row of

mirrors hung in a space. • Incorporate small gold accents in smaller surface areas such as nightstands or bookcases. • Experiment with accent pieces of different sizes and shapes. Don’t: • Overdo it. In many cases, less is more. Use your gold accents purposefully and sparingly. • Use gold on too many primary or large pieces in a room, as this can overwhelm. • Miss an opportunity to mix gold with other metallic elements such as silver. • Forget it’s OK to mix different materials such as lacquer and wood with some of your gold elements. • Pair gold accents with too many patterns. Solid colors such as black and white can help enhance gold accent pieces.

ver heard of a judging team? In Alachua County we have six youth judging teams that meet to study anything from livestock to horticulture. Four of these teams — Marine Ecology, Forest Ecology, Horticulture and Entomology — include plant identification as a section in their state contest. The judging team events are seasonal, with Forest Ecology in the spring, Marine Ecology and Horticulture during the summer months and Entomology in the fall. Currently, most of the youth involved in a judging team are members of all the teams, so their knowledge base is extensive and impressive. The Horticulture team learns 50 woody ornamentals, 50 flowers and foliage, 50 vegetables and 50 fruits and nuts. Last year Alachua had the statewinning intermediate team and high-placing individual for Forest Ecology. In 4-H we believe in hands-on learning and lifeskill development, meaning that anything we do is an activity and is linked to life skills. 4-H’ers learn a variety of skills from participating on a judging team including reasoning, critical thinking, teamwork, decision making and communication. The teams

practice around 20 times over the three months leading up to the state contest. Each team has a coach who is a volunteer or UF faculty member that organizes the practices. The coach coordinates with local experts and University of Florida faculty. 4-H connects youth with the experts in specific knowledge areas. For example, the Forest Ecology team will hike with local forestry experts and identify trees and plants during the hike. The forestry and Horticulture team also visited the UF herbarium for a behind-the-scenes tour and to learn how to properly mount and preserve specimens. The Marine Ecology team spent a day learning new plant species at Anastasia State Park with a park ranger. The Entomology team is a brand new team developed because of Alachua

4-H’ers interest in insects. Youth work on collecting, identifying, labeling and curating hundreds of insects through the year. Youth plan trips across the Southeast to collect and can be found with collecting equipment 24/7. The team went with UF faculty on an overnight trip to Archold Biological Station to collect insects in a new ecosystem. This connects back to the Forest Ecology contest where youth have to identify insects and diseases. Another neat thing these 4-H’ers do is participate in environmental community service. These youth have helped develop gardens at the Altrusa House and in Micanopy, as well as participate in the Great Invader Rally removing invasive plants. They also can be found in classrooms teaching other See GARDEN, 9

Alphabet bowl includes Kewpie decorated surface specialties was nursery ware. Current potential dollar value is below $100.

John Sikorski Q: I have this child’s bowl. Underneath it says “DEM, East Liverpool WET.” It measures 5 1/2 inches across the inside and 7 1/2 across the outside. The bowl belonged to my grandmother and my mother thinks it was made in the 1920s. I have included a photo, as you can see it is in really good condition. What is it worth and how old do you think it is? — C.N., internet A: You have a child’s alphabet bowl with a Kewpie decorated surface. Rose O’Neill created the pixie-like figure that was first depicted in the Ladies Home Journal. The mark on the back of the bowl indicates it was produced by the D.E. McNicol Company in East Liverpool, Ohio, between 1915 and 1923. One of their

This child’s alphabet bowl was produced by the D.E. McNicol Company in East Liverpool, Ohio, between 1915 and 1923.

Q: Enclosed please find a couple of pictures of a telephone coffee grinder. It was made by Arcade Mfg. Co, Patent date 1893. It is 6 1/2 by 13 inches high. Would you know how much I could sell it for? — U.B., internet A: Coffee mills or grinders have been a specific category of collector interest for some time now. New boutique coffee retailing chains have helped increase collector interest in coffee paraphernalia in the general population as well. Coffee shops often display different types of antique coffee mills as decorative accents in store windows, etcetera. The Arcade Mfg. Company made several versions of the hand crank telephone motif coffee mill during the last two decades of the 1800s. The one you have with an ornate cast iron floral motif front was their fancy model. Current potential dollar value is below $500.

Q: My husband stayed in Germany after World War II and I joined him there in 1946. We lived in Augsburg. This is in Bavaria. The Germans were starving then, hard to believe now, and sold or exchanged their most prized family possessions for food. I became the owner of several items which may have value and perhaps you could tell me about them. One is a silver plate about 11 inches in diameter with five coins embedded in it. Each coin is about 3 inches in diameter. One has Arabic numerals 1642. The other have Roman

numerals from the 1600s to the 1700s. The plate and the coins are in good condition. They bear the pictures and names of various kings of that period such as Leopold. I have about five demitasse cups in good condition. Several others in not so good condition. I was told they were from royal households and they look like they could have been. I have a post World War II Rosenthal figure of a boy with a sheep. It bears the stamp on the bottom, Occupied Germany. Evidently they got back

Kids room transformation: Annabelle’s room


would love to have grown up as one of the Cook girls, with a mother who is a fearless decorator, who follows her spot-on instincts to create living spaces that are packed with personality. When I saw how Lisa and her middle daughter, Annabelle, reinvented Annabelle’s bedroom, I was agog. I wanted to pack my bags and move in that day. When we first featured Annabelle’s room in my book “Feather Your Nest,” she was just 5. Back then, her room was sugar and spice and everything nice. Cupids, flowers and fancy tea sets were the choice of this little princess. Today, Annabelle is a 16-year-old high school junior, and boy, how her taste has changed. Lisa uses these two words to describe her middle daughter: Creative and smart. Annabelle is the assistant editor of her high school newspaper, and likes marketing and graphic design. Her room needed to be an

oasis that fueled her creative engine. I think they nailed it. Once the walls were washed in vibrant pink, next up was to give Annabelle a bed more in keeping with her personality. Her flouncy four poster bed, capped by a crown, gave way to a contemporary bedframe upholstered in pale pink fabric. The bed alone instantly changed the look of the room, Lisa said. One thing that’s great about having sisters is you get to share each other’s stuff. For the Cook girls, this extends far beyond borrowing sweaters or earrings. They swap furniture. This fabulous chair was last seen in little sister Georgia’s room. Lisa gave it a facelift by reupholstering it in this sassy pink and white buffalo check. Once again, Lisa artfully uses a bookcase to tell the story of the room’s inhabitant. The wall of built-in bookcases hosts the things Annabelle holds dear, from her childhood to today: collections of horse figures and dolls,

books, travel mementos and framed snapshots celebrating life’s special moments. Lisa knows the secret to making a room feel evolved and interesting is to mix together a variety of styles. The chinoiserie-style mirror adds an exotic touch. Lisa and I are simpatico when it comes to artwork. Like me, she likes to experiment with art treatments, mixing all kinds of things together. She purposely chose different frame styles and sizes for this gallery on Annabelle’s wall. In other spots in the room, she’s pulled in three dimensional pieces, like the whimsical gilded deer head over Annabelle’s bed. Once again, Lisa used new lamps to help finish this reimagined space. She knew she was taking a risk when she picked statement lamps with a coral base and apple green shades. I’m so glad she pushed the envelope a bit, because the bold lamps work brilliantly in this high energy room. The wall of built-in bookcases hosts the things Annabelle holds dear, from her childhood to today: collections of horse figures and dolls, books, travel mementos and framed snapshots.

Saving water in the kitchen By Ed Del Grande Tribune News Service

Dear Ed: My proposed kitchen remodel will include new appliances, countertops, sink and faucet. Since I plan to use efficient appliances, I also want an efficient kitchen faucet. Can you please go over some water-saving kitchen faucet information for me to think about? — Sasha, Mississippi Dear Sasha: In past years, water-saving kitchen faucets have not received as much attention as water-saving bathroom faucets. The thinking was in the kitchen a lot of the water use was to fill things like pots for cooking and cups for drinking. What difference would it make if the faucet used less gallons per minute (gpm), since the end goal was to fill up the pot or cup? However, even with a dishwasher, pots, pans, cups and dishes do get

One hour a week, one life changed Americans have spoken and the consensus is out: improving education is a community responsibility. Today, fewer Americans are likely to earn a diploma than their parents, a distinction not shared by any other industrialized country. When schools improve, communities improve. Sometimes kids just need someone who believes in them. United Way needs your help to increase the reading scores of our students.

United Way is looking for volunteer readers that are willing to give one hour a week (two 30 minute sessions) for 25 weeks to spend reading with a child at a targeted Marion County school. t5SBJOJOHJTQSPWJEFE t"MMNBUFSJBMTBSFQSPWJEFE t$IPPTFUIFTDIPPMZPVXBOUUPXPSLXJUI

— known for her roles on the television dramas “24” and “Grey’s Anatomy” — and her husband, director Manu Boyer, have listed their home in Venice for sale at $3.699 million. Designed by architect Lise Claiborne Matthews, the multilevel house mixes modern design features with industrial finishes such as polished concrete floors and corrugated metal siding. Open-plan living spaces include a den/ family room and a newly renovated chef’s kitchen on the main floor. The living room has a pocketing glass wall that opens to the grounds. A private balcony sits off the upstairs master suite, which has a walk-in closet and updated bath. There are three bedrooms and three bathrooms in 2,018 square feet of living space. The garage functions as a creative space and has a separate entrance. A fire pit with builtin benches, an outdoor shower, drought-tolerant landscaping and bamboo hedges fill out the grounds. Raver, 48, last year appeared on the show “Ray Donovan” and reprised her role as Dr. Teddy Altman on “Grey’s Anatomy.” Among her other TV credits are “Revolution” and “Third Watch.” Boyer wrote and directed the 2015 film drama “To Whom It May Concern.” The very model of Streamline Moderne “Zoolander” producer

Stuart Cornfeld and his wife, performance artist Johanna Went, have listed their home in the Hollywood Hills for sale at $2.65 million. Set above the famed Chateau Marmont, the three-story house is a stellar example of Streamline Moderne design. Built in the 1930s, the house has emphasized curves, clean lines and sets of metal-framed windows characteristic of the late Art Deco-period style. Porthole cutouts and period fixtures give the interior a nautical vibe. The 2,771 square feet of living space includes a living room and sitting area that share a two-sided fireplace. The formal dining room has seating for a dozen, and the updated kitchen stays true to the period, with chrome, hardwood and checkerboard floors. A balcony sits off the master suite, which features a one-of-a-kind pitched skylight and en suite bathroom awash in artistic tile. In total, there are three bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and a sauna. A wine room with walls of curved bookshelves sits next to the garage and has a door that leads to the patio. Bamboo and privacy hedges complete the setting. Cornfeld, 65, is a producer for Red Hour Productions, which he operates with actor Ben Stiller. Among his film credits are “Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story” (2004) and “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” (2013). He also served as an executive producer for the Comedy Central shows “The Meltdown With Jonah and Kumail” and “Another Period.”

She left, and now he’s gone too Music producer Richard Perry has officially beat it out of Beverly Hills, selling his home of six years for $8.535 million. Perry bought the home six years ago for $7.2 million and lived there with actress Jane Fonda, his partner at the time. The couple announced last year that they were ending their relationship of nearly a decade; Fonda has since decamped to Century City, where she bought a town home in a gated community for $5.45 million. The gated contemporary home, built in 1961 and since renovated, was previously owned by late television director John Rich. It features clean lines, beamed ceilings and a glass-walled elevator. Large doubleglazed windows take in leafy backyard views. Within more than 7,500 square feet are an updated kitchen, a large great room, four bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms. The lower level holds a recording studio, media room and dinerstyle wet bar. The master suite has a sitting room and an adjoining office. A paver patio encloses a solar-heated swimming pool in the backyard. Elsewhere are a meditation garden, a fire pit and a lookout point for enjoying canyon-to-ocean views. Perry, 75, is credited with scores of popular music hits during the 1960s and ’70s and has won producer of the year awards from Rolling Stone and Billboard magazines. He has produced hit albums and singles for such artists as Rod Stewart, Carly Simon and the Pointer Sisters.
