Toss these common household items when old By Alan J. Heavens The Philadelphia Inquirer

I often think about old things I’d like to be rid of — like about 40 years between me and my early 20s — but that’s not possible until they invent a time machine. Now AARP, which knows old, is offering suggestions on the five

old things you need to throw away during your spring-cleaning exercises this year. » Piled-up plastic containers – Years-old plastics can leak harmful chemicals into food. Recycle them and buy a new set. » Expired canned food – It doesn’t last forever. Vegetables and fruit

sick, but for more flavorful food, get some new spices. » Pathetic pillows – Pillows older than 18 months contain fungi, dead skin, and dust mites that can aggravate allergies, asthma, and sinusitis. Try this: Fold your pillow in half and squeeze out the air. If it doesn’t spring back, it’s

expire in slightly more than 18 months. » Moldy makeup – After a year, makeup should be replaced because of bacteria buildup that could cause infections. » Old dried spices – After five years, most spices lose flavor, so dumping more on won’t help. It won’t make you

too old. I wonder if folding a person in half will accomplish the same thing. By the way, your chewing gum loses its flavor on the bedpost overnight. Question: My showerhead gets a coating of a pink-colored substance. I soak it in a bucket of water with bleach, which removes it, but it soon recurs. What is this and is it detrimental to my health? Answer: One online source contends that the pink-colored grit is calcification caused by hard water and that soaking it in water and bleach regularly is what you have to do. Yet “The Plumber Who Cares” website — Fogarty & Fogarty in South Carolina — talks about the pink stain or ring that “develops at the water line in the toilet, around drains, in the tub/shower area and in bathroom drinking cups.” This is caused, according to the website, by an airborne bacteria known as serratia marcescens. The airborne bacteria thrives in moist environments, which is why it is commonly found in some bathrooms. Bleach doesn’t allow the bacteria to form, and drying wet surfaces after use will prevent the bacteria from growing, TPWC says. Serratia marcescens is commonly associated with urinary tract infections. I’m neither a microbiologist nor a chemist, so perhaps someone with more expertise will be willing to provide some answers for us.

Clutter check From Apartment Guide, some tips for keeping clutter in check. If you haven’t worn

that piece of clothing in a full calendar year, chances are that you won’t. Give away the clothing you haven’t worn so you can clear out space for those pieces that you do. Don’t be afraid to rethink your entire closet/storage space layout. It may seem overwhelming starting from square one, but often a full reorganization and layout upheaval can yield big results, and you may find space where you least expect it. Not everyone switches out their closets seasonally, but if you’re hard up for storage, you absolutely should. It’s tempting to fit as much as possible in any closet or storage compartment, but that is usually what makes a space look more cluttered — no light. So, keep your clothing stacks to a reasonable height, and reevaluate the items you choose to keep. Shoe racks, belt hangers, and scarf bins are the perfect way to keep things organized.

Hardy chestnut rose an heirloom for the ages By Norman Winter

McClatchy-Tribune News Service

If you remember oldfashioned roses growing off your grandmother’s front porch and long for that beauty at your home, consider the heirloom chestnut rose. Antique roses are those grown prior to 1867 — the date of the first hybrid-tea and of course the finest of the species of roses that have been growing seemingly forever. The chestnut rose is also known as the burr rose and chinquapin rose. The old-fashioned medium pink double form, Rosa roxburghii plena, was discovered in the early 1800s in China and spread quickly to Europe and the United States. You can’t get more heirloom than that. Ours are blooming at the Columbus Botanical Garden, creating the perfect complement to our historic farmhouse. It is an extremely tough rose, which puts it at the top of everyone’s list and is cold hardy though Zone 5. We never spray ours. And though it is not a continuous re-

peat-blooming Knockout, it is definitely a longblooming rose, which is a plus for such an antique. It offers a garden texture that few other roses can duplicate. I love the burr or chestnutlike buds when not yet opened, and the fern-like foliage. Every time I look at it I can imagine the famed artist Pierre Joseph Redoute’ applying its beauty to the canvas. The plants reach close to 7 feet tall with an equal spread, so plan on giving it room to be all it can be. Roses need five to six hours of direct sun each day. Morning sun is essential, but afternoon shade is tolerated. Good air movement helps the dew and rain dry quickly, discouraging disease pressure, which again is considered low with the chestnut rose. Avoid planting under the eaves of your home where gushing water can cause damage. When you are ready to plant, dig your planting hole two to three times wider than the rootball — but no deeper. The wide hole allows for the quickest root-expansion and acclimation to your garden.

First Commerce plans homebuyer workshop With the prime buying season heating up as summer approaches, First Commerce Credit Union will host a free workshop for homebuyers on Saturday, June 22.

Space is limited. Call 488-0035, ext. 1027, to RSVP or make reservations online at http://

Though the chestnut rose is not picky about soil, it should be fertile and well drained. Fertilization is best based on a soil test but normal application times are at bud break, at formation of first buds and then about every six weeks through summer. Very little pruning is needed. As always re-

move any sick or dead canes, otherwise you can feel free to remove onethird of the bush after bloom as needed to maintain size and look. This will be one of those roses that will make your neighbors envious with your green thumb, but combinations are what will make your garden look like you

Paul Thompson, CAE TBA Executive Officer

know what you are doing. Since the rose is a large shrub with dreamy pink lightly fragrant blossoms, consider going with the cottage look. It normally blooms at the same time as the blue larkspurs ( Consolida ambigua) and a host of spikey blue salvias like the Victoria Blue and the Mystic Spires blue, a

compact and superior Indigo Spires selection. Shasta daisies and rudbeckias also fit nicely in this cottage garden design.

Weekly Report to Housing Consumers From the Tallahassee Builders Association

201 East Park Avenue, Tallahassee, FL 32301 | (850) 385-1414 |

Consumers Gravitate to Five Home Remodeling Projects It’s official now… June is “Home Remodeling Month” in Leon County, thanks to a proclamation presented to the Tallahassee Builders Association (TBA) last week by Commissioner Kristin Dozier and the Leon County Commission.

return. Consider replacing backsplashes, cabinet fronts, countertops, and flooring. Installing low-flow faucets and energyefficient appliances can also reduce water and energy expenses in a heavily trafficked room.

During June, TBA will be educating consumers on their remodeling possibilities… and offering the services of TBA’s professional remodelers to make it happen.

Payback on remodeling a bathroom can reach 65 percent with new fixtures, tile, toilet, vanity and lighting. Low-flow toilets consume less water and can decrease the monthly water bill. 2. Remodel the kitchen A minor kitchen remodel can improve the look and utility of the space without costing a bundle, and yields a 75 percent

Property damage is a common but unfortunate occurrence. Seize misfortune as an opportunity to customize and upgrade the home. If you are already going to be inconvenienced with major home repairs, take that time to plan and incorporate home remodeling that may have been put off in the past. 5. Whole house remodeling

We thought you might find it enlightening to know what people are embracing as the most popular home remodeling projects. Here are the top five according to a national study: 1. Remodel the bathroom

4. Repair property damage

TBA President Shane Lambert, CIP, accepts the Leon County Commission Proclamation declaring June as “Home Remodeling Month.” The proclamation was presented by Leon County Commissioner Kristin Dozier at the May 28, 2013 Commission meeting.

3. Replace windows and doors Updating windows can also return a solid portion of the investment (73 percent for wood frames and 71 percent for vinyl). New, energy-efficient doors and windows also help reduce energy leakage from the home and can bring down heating and cooling bills.

Repairs and replacements of old components and the desire for upgraded amenities were cited as the top reasons for customers to hire a remodeler. Evaluate the use of the entire home to see if it fits your needs. Home owners are repurposing spaces to fit their families and making more efficient use of their home’s square footage and equity, rather than moving to a new home and mortgage. We wish you the best in your remodeling endeavors… in June… and throughout the year… and remember, you can rely on the professionalism of TBA members. TD-0000233361

Atlanta condo market returning from dead


By Arielle Kass The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

We had an oversupply of condo units, but like everything else, it’s been eaten up. It’s gone. EUGENE JAMES, Atlanta regional director of Metrostudy

James said he does not expect an influx of new condo projects. But he and others said they would not be surprised to learn of sporadic new condominiums, and that the small project — called Seventh — is viable. “I think it’s time for another condo project to

get off the ground,” said Joshua Herndon, an associate at the real estate consulting firm Haddow & Co. “I like the idea of smaller projects coming on to test the market.” Seventh would be a nine-story midrise building, with retail at the ground level and three units on most floors.

peak, to 1,171 units at the end of 2012. Herndon said he expects the number to be well below 1,000 when his firm compiles new numbers this summer. Any interest in new construction shows that the trend toward a sellers’ market in singlefamily homes — at least in desirable areas — is becoming the case for condos, too, Leventhal said. John Stremming, a Midtown resident, recently sold his condo at 905 Juniper — at a profit — to buy one at Midtown’s Midcity Lofts. He’s not sure new construction in the area would boost his home’s

value, but he doesn’t think it will hurt. And Stremming sees the movement in the market, too. Some units spark bidding wars. “It’s a great time to sell,” Stremming said. James Robbins, a Realtor with The Marketing Directors, recently sold his Viewpoint condo in Midtown. He said new construction will be necessary in a year when the supply of new condos has diminished more. But nothing is certain. “The market is still timid,” Herndon said. “The severity of the downturn in the ‘condo’ market certainly lingers in people’s minds.”

Serving the Industries Serving You CREDIT REPORTS AND “DISMISSALS”


ATLANTA — The condo market in metro Atlanta, beaten nearly to a standstill by the housing bust and recession, is beginning to follow the path of single-family homes into recovery. Sales volume and prices are up, while the glut of unsold units built during the boom is being whittled down. Now the words “condo” and “construction” are even being used in the same sentence, with a developer team recently announcing plans for a new 23-unit building in Midtown. While small and aimed at higher-end buyers, it would be the first major condo project in Atlanta since 2007. “It means values are on the rise,” said Scott Leventhal, president of Tivoli Properties, which is not the developer of the Midtown project but has built Atlanta condos in the past. “That’s the thing that should be most comforting to existing condo owners.” When housing tanked in 2007, condo developers auctioned off units and slashed prices as demand evaporated. Some finished developments were turned into rental units. The new project at Peachtree and 7th streets in Midtown, ironically, was planned as apartments, but would be built as for-sale units to take advantage of the low inventory and rising demand. “We had an oversupply of condo units, but like everything else, it’s been eaten up. It’s gone,” said Eugene James, Atlanta regional director of Metrostudy. “It’ll be two years out before they even start delivering units. It’s going to be a great time. It makes sense.”

Prices would start in the mid-$600,000s, with two penthouse units priced just under $1 million. The developers, former Aaron’s CEO Robin Loudermilk and Dwight Bell, are still working on financing the project. Construction would not begin until some units are sold, a spokesman said. The average sale price for an in-town Atlanta condo was $167,234 in 2012, up 19 percent yearover-year, as the number of sales rose 21 percent, according to year-end data from Haddow & Co. The number of new, unsold units was down 84 percent from the 2007

by Harry Anthony Heist, Attorney at Law In the “Public Records” section of your typical credit report, you will see things like evictions, foreclosures, suits for money and bankruptcy filings. Most application processing companies obtain and compile this data to allow the landlord to make a more informed decision on whether or not they will rent to the applicant. Often you will see that an eviction was filed on the applicant, and the disposition was “Voluntary Dismissal” or “Dismissed”. Does this mean that the tenant was not evicted or that everything was amicably resolved? Don’t be so sure. The “Dismissal” Not all tenants who have evictions filed against them are actually “evicted” by the Sheriff. A number of things can happen. The tenant may vacate the premises voluntarily shortly after the eviction is filed. The tenant may pay all the money owed, and the landlord requests that the eviction be stopped. The tenant may enter into a Stipulation with the landlord, under which payment arrangements are made, and the tenant successfully stays and pays pursuant to the settlement terms. In all these scenarios, the eviction filing will show up in the public record and will be in this public record for many years. Eventually, the eviction matter is “dismissed” and is recorded as such. There are two main ways an eviction is dismissed. It will either be by the landlord’s attorney filing a “Voluntary Dismissal”, or the court entering a “Dismissal for Failure to Prosecute”. In both cases, the public record will show the case as being dismissed, BUT it does not always mean that things were worked out or that the tenant paid the rent. Usually, it is quite the opposite and simply means the tenant vacated and the eviction was not processed further. The Voluntary Dismissal When a tenant vacates, the attorney may file a “Voluntary Dismissal”. This means that the case is no longer being prosecuted, as no further action is necessary on the file. The landlord got what they wanted, which is possession of the premises. In the situation where a Stipulation is entered into by the parties, the Stipulation may provide that the case will be voluntarily dismissed upon the tenant making the payments as planned. Unfortunately, the landlord, when looking at a “Voluntary Dismissal”, usually has no way of knowing why the case was dismissed. Without further information, the best assumption a landlord can make is that the eviction was filed and that the tenant vacated.

Many evictions are filed as Two-Count Complaints. Under the first count the landlord is asking for possession, and under the second count the landlord is suing for money damages. In order to get a judgment for money damages in Count Two, the tenant will have had to be served personally with the eviction action or will have filed an answer to the complaint. Often, neither of these two contingencies occur, and at the end of the eviction or some time after the eviction is over, the attorney will file the Voluntary Dismissal with the court to close the case out. There may even have been a Final Judgment for Eviction somewhere in the public records, but the final action showing up may be that “Voluntary Dismissal as to Count Two” The Dismissal for Failure to Prosecute If an eviction is filed, the tenant vacates and the attorney takes no further action, the Clerk of Court’s office will eventually send out a notice to the attorney and the tenant stating that the case will soon be dismissed by the court on its own, if the attorney for the landlord or the tenant does not pursue the case any further. This could be six months after the case has been filed, or even more than a year. The attorney will either then file a Voluntary Dismissal closing out the case or do nothing, and the Court will go ahead and dismiss the case. If a Two-Count complaint has been filed and no personal service has been effected on the tenant, the Court will know that the case is probably not going to proceed any further and will want the case dismissed. This dismissal by the court happens to tens of thousands of cases each year. The Court does not want to keep files unnecessarily open and will purge them from their active case system. When the landlord looks at the public record results, it will show as a “Dismissal”. What should the landlord do when the record shows “Dismissed”? There is a high probability that the applicant had an eviction filed against him or her by a prior landlord and just vacated. It is imperative that if any eviction filing shows up on the public record, the landlord looks into the matter deeply to find out exactly what happened during the eviction. Did the tenant pay and stay? Did the tenant vacate? Did the tenant get fully evicted? These are all questions that can be answered by looking at the Court file further and contacting the prior landlord. Most counties are now online on the internet, and a lot of information will be available to the landlord by simply going to the website of the Clerk of Court where the tenant had the eviction filing and examining the docket.

How to fight force-placed property insurance By Gary M. Singer Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel

HOUSE OF THE WEEK Design No. HOTW130009 Bedrooms: 3 Baths: 2½ Main level: 1,138 sq. ft. Second level: 600 sq. ft. Total living area: 1,738 sq. ft.

Question: I noticed that my monthly mortgage payment went up. The lender told me that the increase was because I failed to keep insurance on the property, and the lender had to buy a policy for me, which was more expensive. But I still have my old insurance. What happened? – Carla Answer: It sounds like your lender “force-placed” you into an insurance policy. In most mortgages, the lender requires that you have appropriate insurance. When it’s paid each year, the company is supposed to send your lender a copy of the new policy. If your lender does not receive it, you will be sent a letter asking for a copy of your insurance declaration page. Without any confirmation of insurance, the lender will buy a policy to replace yours, which, as you mentioned, is more expensive. And it provides less coverage for you. Lenders often have deals with these insurance companies and make commissions. This abusive practice has been getting a lot of attention lately, and regulators are finally starting to crack down on the problem. Make sure to carefully read all mail sent by your lender and call if there is something you don’t understand. Also, review your monthly statements and question any payment increase immediately. If you realize that this has happened after the fact, you will need proof that your insurance was current the entire time. Force-placed policies also can happen when homeowners are behind on their mortgage payments. If you are delinquent on the mortgage, at least consider paying the insurance premium to avoid having coverage forced on you.
