The many benefits of trees By Kristine Switt Pioneer Garden Club of Ocala
I think that I shall never see an air conditioner lovely as a tree Trees provide beauty, wildlife habitat, flood and erosion control, and promote health and the well-being of our community. They are also living air conditioners which clean and cool the air. The Clean Air Act of 1970 identified chemicals and particulates in the air which harm human health, wildlife, and plants. Although these regulations have significantly improved air quality in the U.S., human activity continues to release unhealthy amounts of these harmful substances into the air. Trees remove pollutants in two ways. First, leaves take up DEED TRANSFERS Warranty deed transfers in excess of $60,000 as recorded at the Marion County Clerk of the Circuit Court’s office from Dec. 30, 2019-Jan. 3, 2020: • 18th Street Partners Condo.

sulfur dioxide, ozone, nitrogen dioxide, and carbon monoxide directly through their stomata and retain them inside the leaves in various forms. Second, leaf surfaces and bark can trap airborne particulates, which cause lung damage, asthma, and other conditions. It has been shown that a significant increase in tree cover in areas with high airborne particulates reduces childhood asthma by as much as 29%. Trees are an important cost-effective tool in moderating pollution. Preservation of older trees has significant benefits as larger trees contribute far more to pollution reduction than smaller, new trees. A 30-inch diameter tree removes about 70 times more air pollution than a smaller (less than 3-inch diameter) tree.
marked R C Versailles, Bavaria. I have no idea as to why this set would have the same flower design, color, and placement and not the same manufacturer. I would appreciate some insight into this as well as age. Thank you. — M.D.A., internet A: The lemonade pitcher is made of porcelain and was hand painted in the United States. The porcelain maker was the Pouyat firm in Limoges, France. The Pouyat name is one of the oldest recognized families connected with the porcelain industry in the Limoges region of France. The company was one of the largest exporters of undecorated porcelains to the United States during the late 1800s. The mark on the lemonade
pitcher indicates it was produced between 1883 and 1914. The potential dollar value is $75 to $125. The porcelain chocolate pot and cups and saucers are beautifully hand painted. The maker of the pot was Tressemann and Vogt in Limoges, France. They were also one of the larger firms in Limoges exporting porcelain tableware to the United States during the late 19th and into the early 20th century. There were other porcelain manufacturers in Austria, Bohemia, Bavaria as well as other countries exporting undecorated tableware to the United States during the time that was retailed by department stores. During the Victorian
period, 1830 to 1901, it was popular for ladies to hand paint sets of china and hollowware. Ladies would often purchase one piece at a time to hand paint, most did not pay much attention to the manufacturer. This is why your chocolate set has various makers’ backstamps. Potential dollar value for the chocolate pot is $150 to $225, cups and saucers will be $25 to $40 per unit.

that carbon dioxide levels were increasing in the air due to the burning of fossil fuels, causing an overall incremental increase in earth’s average temperature. This warming trend increases the need for energy to cool homes, offices, and other places where people gather. Trees help to cool the air, and they do so in two ways. First, trees transpire water through their leaves, creating a cooling of the air within the branches and areas beneath the trees. Air in the shade of trees can be several degrees lower than temperatures in unshaded areas due to transpiration. The denser the canopy, the greater this effect.
It also became apparent in the 1970s
In addition, shading of heat-absorbing impervious surfaces such as pavement and buildings by trees can significantly lower urban ambient temperatures,

reducing the urban heat island effect. This cooling reduces energy use and indirectly, the pollution resulting from energy production. Trees also sequester carbon, pulling in atmospheric carbon dioxide and fixing it in the tree structure through the process of photosynthesis. Adding tree cover helps to slow the rate of global warming by increasing the amount of carbon captured in this manner. The trend in the U.S., however, has been a reduction in tree cover and an increase in heatretaining impervious surfaces. Florida ranked in the top 3 states for annual average loss of tree cover, and in the top 3 for annual average increase in impervious surfaces for the years 2009-2014.
fight climate change with its “Plant America with Trees: Each ONE Plant ONE” campaign. Each of its 165,000 clubs are asked to plant one tree. The Pioneer Garden Club is the local chapter. For more information on the club’s activities, visit the club’s website www. pioneergardenclub.org. Consider increasing the tree cover in your yard and encourage others to do the same. Keep existing tree cover, especially large, healthy trees, and add new, long-lived native trees with lower maintenance requirements. Winter is a great time for planting trees in Florida.

10 tips for a calmer home
By Cathy Hobbs
Tribune News Service
For most people, home is the place where a day starts and ends. Instead of the home being a place of clutter and chaos, how can you truly make it an oasis? The key in essence is to create a sense of calm, which can be achieved in different ways. Here are our top 10 tips. 1. Create cozy areas. Create a relaxation area in your home specifically dedicated as a place to recharge.
Textile materials such as faux fur, velvet pillows and a multilevel pile rug add a sense of coziness to the master bedroom. [Design Recipes/TNS]
2. Find a relaxation focal point. Even if you don’t have a fireplace for everyone to gather around, you can still rearrange your space to create a focal point that can serve as the hub of
relaxation activity. This could be done as simply as creating a cozy room, or an attractive communal table. 3. Infuse scents. In nature each season brings a fresh fragrance and scent. Fragrance can also help provide a sense of calm. Consider infusing calming scents into your home such as lavender, mint, juniper and sage. 4. Incorporate nature. Natural elements such as wood can help warm a space. 5. Provide comfort. When in doubt, add a cozy throw or plush pillows. 6. Use greenery. Succulents, trees and plants can help improve
overall indoor air quality. 7. Integrate a neutral color palette. Adding earth tones goes a long way to add warmth and coziness to a space. Consider warm, shades of brown, green, yellow and red. 8. Open the windows. Natural light not only impacts moods, it helps enhance lives. 9. Add candles. Nothing signals calm and relaxation more than candles. 10. Unplug. Electronics usage is not only distracting, but a counterbalance to relaxation. Carve out a section of your day for device-free “me” moments.
Travolta gets $18 million for longtime Brentwood home By Neal J. Leitereg and Jack Flemming Los Angeles Times (TNS)
LOS ANGELES — Is it the end of summer loving in Brentwood for John Travolta? The actor and his wife, actress Kelly Preston, have quietly sold their longtime home in the Los Angeles neighborhood in an off-market deal for $18 million. The buyer was a trust tied to big-time record executive Scooter Braun, who also owns the property next door. The fenced and gated estate centers on a Spanish-style mansion of 9,100 square feet with 10 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. A guardhouse and two garages are among other structures on the site. Built in 1949, the two-story house features beamed ceilings, Saltillo tile floors and hand-painted tilework. DEED TRANSFERS From Page 2

Choose Valentine’s Day decor with love
Add a table element that can act as a gift for dinner attendees so they can bring a little bit of decor back to their own homes. [Handout/TNS]
By Katie Laughridge Tribune News Service
Valentine’s Day is approaching and as a lover of seasonal decor I am thrilled that the shop has pops of my favorite red and white goodies. They remind me of all the fun I had during our classroom Valentine’s Day parties as a kid, like decorating valentine boxes and handing out cute cards to my fellow classmates (or maybe it was all the sweets I got to take home after). It can be easy to veer into cheesy decor territory with something as whimsical and lighthearted as Valentine’s Day, but with the proper approach I find it to be a fun and festive time of year that is perfect to cheer up your home after the bulk of winter holiday decorations have been put away. If I could only choose one thing to have out during this holiday, it would be a vase full of tulips. I adore having stems out around the house to add a pop of color and freshness, especially when the weather is dreary. The HOT PROPERTY From Page 4
walls that connect to a wraparound deck. There’s also a dry sauna. Outside, grounds of more than half an acre center on an infinity-edge swimming pool with a spa. A two-car garage and additional parking fill out the estate.
vibrant reds and soft blush hues instantly warm up any space and put a smile on everyone’s face. They are the perfect thing to replace any remaining greenery and pinecones lingering on mantels and tabletops. I thought they looked especially sweet in our checkered red-andwhite container. A tin caught my eye during Christmas, and I think I will transition it into our summer red, white and blue as well. In fact, a lot of the textiles we use during Valentine’s are ones we tend to transition into other times of year. A red plaid tablecloth is a timeless addition that can go from romantic dinner for two to a summer picnic and back to a jolly Christmas. Just highlighting a few delicate heart accessories can bring some festive flair, perfect for February fun. I was especially excited by the stone heart containers we used for a tabletop. Finally, a way to make a box of chocolates last The 51-year-old Shore is known for his film roles in “Encino Man” (1992), “Son in Law” (1993) and “In the Army Now” (1994). He currently hosts the Random Rants video podcast on YouTube. Shore bought the property in 1996 for $1.15 million. In recent years, he has had it up for lease for as much as $27,500 a month.
past the last bite! I love adding a table element that can act as a gift for my dinner attendees so they can bring a little bit of decor back to their
own homes. Wouldn’t this be a perfect takeaway for friends during a Galentine’s dinner?
At the end of the day (or season) there is no “right” way to decorate for a small holiday. Whether you like a display that shouts your
love of festivities or one that subtly blends with your year-round decor, all that matters is that you have fun and get your creativity flowing.
