It was not until November 2021 that each resident was placed in temporary housing after Hurricane Laura hit southwest Louisiana in August 2020, although many residents were placed in units before. this date. After Hurricane Harvey hit the Houston area in August 2017, it was not until the following June that each resident was placed in a unit.

What is at issue is not only competence, but difficult political choices which are still the subject of debate. Is providing housing for disaster victims the right role for government? If so, at what level of government? And how long after a disaster do victims need housing assistance?

“It can be done if there is a will” said Laurie Schoeman, disaster recovery specialist for Enterprise Community Partners, a nonprofit organization. But FEMA has moved away from direct housing towards rental and hotel vouchers.

“FEMA doesn’t want to be in the housing business,” Ms. Schoeman said.

In the middle are people like Ms. Manuel and her neighbors, some of whom have decided to sleep in cars or tents or inside damaged and moldy houses. Some have doubled or tripled with family and friends.

“It looks like they would already have steps, like: this is what we do when something happens,” Ms. Manuel said. “It’s like they’re trying to figure out what to do next instead of knowing it already. “

More than three months after Hurricane Ida ravaged the Louisiana coast, thousands of residents of the hardest-hit bayou communities southwest of New Orleans are still displaced. According to a FEMA spokesperson, only 126 of the 4,465 households deemed eligible by FEMA for direct housing had moved into housing. There is no estimated timeframe for completion.

After months of waiting for FEMA housing, Ms. Manuel’s older brother and sister finally received help from a different source: the state provided them each with a caravan, as part of a new program to meet acute housing need. The program went much faster than FEMA’s: by early December, around 1,200 families had moved into the Louisiana trailers – campers that can be towed by a vehicle – and another 800 are expected to move in over the next few weeks. . But the program, which started from scratch, has also experienced delays.

Ask anyone, whether it’s Christmas or Hanukkah, there is one special thing he or she can display in their home to mark these celebrations.

You know what I’m talking about. Maybe it’s Charlie Brown’s Christmas tree or the famous floor lamp that ends up in your front window for everyone to see. Some may appreciate putting up a train layout under the tree or displaying a family menorah passed down from generation to generation.

No matter what brings a smile, now is the time to make the season shine. I shook off the gloom of last year’s holidays and managed to lift the tree. It is adorned with a collection of ornaments that has spanned 47 years.

There are the basic colorful glass bulbs, hand-sewn fabric trees, many firefighter related ornaments, miniature school buses, basketball player, hockey player, hunter with rifle, bells , stars, trains and even photo ornaments.

White lights illuminate the branches and a plastic angel nicknamed Angie sits atop the tree. A manger is located nearby on a table with three frosted table trees that flash in different colors. There are Santas and reindeer hanging from various places throughout the house and oversized ornaments and a holiday flag can be found on the porch.

Guess you could say I really got into the spirit of things this year. It was fun browsing the boxes marked “Christmas” in the basement that were ignored last year. Every ornament and decoration was surrounded by old newspapers and tissue paper. Unwrapping each piece sparked memories of vacations spent with so many people who are no longer with us. Old newspapers told almost forgotten stories.

Aunt Mary gave us many of her beautiful handmade bead ornaments. My mother provided a statue of a Santa Claus firefighter with his loyal Dalmatian by his side.

My mother-in-law also made several ornaments and included a few Hallmark designs.

I’m not the type to place a high value on “things”. But these Christmas baubles are more precious and priceless than any gem you could place in front of me. Among my favorites is a wooden table Santa Claus that our son made when he was very young. Santa is complete with a white cotton beard and a hat. How it has survived all these years is a mystery, but it has a place of honor every year.

I suspect there will be some grandchildren’s holiday creations that will one day compete with Santa for a place on the holiday table. And I don’t think Santa Claus wants to share. After all, isn’t that what we’re all supposed to do?

The Holiday Retail Open House invites shoppers to attend individual celebrations around Iowa City retail stores for snacks, drinks and other small gifts.

The Clock is seen in downtown Iowa City on Thursday, December 2, 2021.


The holiday season is huge in the retail world – and Iowa City’s small businesses are ready and waiting. Downtown Iowa City offers several vacation experiences, from a hall of hundreds of teddy bears to an ongoing elf hunt around town. Among these festivities, the Maison des Fêtes du Commerce de Détail, with nearly 20 participating stores.

The Holiday Open House is on Dec. 4 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and invites the public to attend small holiday parties at local businesses in downtown Iowa City. Each store will provide snacks, drinks, or a small gift that may take the form of a tangible item or a discount with a purchase.

Betsy Potter, director of creative services for downtown Iowa City, said the vacation retail open house has been around for over 20 years and is a collective open house. that makes the holiday season more collaborative.

A new business on Dubuque Street, 223 Baby Co, is spending the holiday season fully enjoying all the seasonal entertainment that downtown Iowa City has to offer.

“Everything they come up with, we’ve always had great results and it’s only been a month,” said owner Macy Krall. “Whatever they create and deliver for us, I probably always will. “

223 Baby Co opened in October this year as an extension of 223 Vintage Co in West Branch. Krall said he noticed several Iowa City residents coming to West Branch specifically for the baby section of the vintage store. She saw the need for a baby store in downtown Iowa City, and the second location was born.

Krall said 223 Baby Co has around 75% baby products, but the store has other products as well, such as gifts for mom and dad and small decorative items for students like small Christmas trees. .

For the holiday season open houses, 223 Baby Co will offer “Baby Dollars”, which are in the form of gift cards. A photographer will also do mini sessions on Saturday evening and Sunday morning.

Krall said November and December are important for small businesses because it gives them the opportunity to launch all of their holiday merchandise and come up with possible gift ideas that are unique to their own store.

Sheila Davisson, owner of clothing boutique Revival, agrees the holidays are a great time to shop downtown, mainly because of her customer-retailer relationship. For the open house, Revival will be providing shoppers with refreshments, as well as a variety of freebies for purchase, including Moon Balm, a lip balm made in Cedar Rapids.

“Many of us store owners and employees have all built relationships with our customers,” Davisson said. “So, this is a time where we can see each other, and we can come together and celebrate a little bit.”

Revival opened in 2003 and has participated in the Retail Open House for several years.

The retail store sells vintage, new and lightly used clothing, as well as other accessories and apothecary products. They have built a brand that encourages the empowerment of women and supports the ethical production of clothing.

“What I’m hoping to achieve is just seeing friendly faces, seeing a lot of our customers,” Davisson said. “I can see them in person after a long time without, you know, so I think that’s what’s most exciting about this holiday season.”

Other participating Iowa City stores include Catherine’s, Beno’s Flowers and Gifts, and men’s store Ewers. You will find other participating companies here.

Hop aboard the North Texas Express for train-themed activities your kids will love!

When I became a parent, I had a lot to learn about raising children. However, one thing was already very familiar to me: little girl stuff. Ruffles, hair bows, baby dolls and all that is pink. My daughters were as girly as they come and I enjoyed every second.

Fast forward a few years, I was fortunate enough to have a baby boy. This time, however, I was less familiar with the interests of his world: dinosaurs, bullets, and literally all forms of transportation, especially trains.

It was during this parenting season that I watched a lot of Thomas the Train movies and found out where to find some great train experiences in the area. I also learned that the great model train enthusiasts were as much of a locomotive as my son. With that in mind, check out this local roundup of train-themed destinations and experiences for all ages and stages. All aboard!

American Railroad Museum

8004 N. Dallas Pkwy
Frisco, Texas 75034

Founded in 1962, the Museum of the American Railroad closed its premises in Dallas’ Fair Park several years ago to move its collections and operations to Frisco. Outdoor walking tours are available that offer up-close views of many engines and passenger cars. Some have been restored, while others show their age.

The walkways are gravel, so comfortable shoes are a good idea. You can purchase your walking tour tickets online or at the offices of the Frisco Heritage Museum.

TrainTopia Model train exhibition

8004 N. Dallas Pkwy
Frisco, Texas 75034

Immerse yourself in a miniature world of trains! The 2,500-square-foot TrainTopia exhibit at the Frisco Discovery Center showcases the topography from Arizona to Texas, New Mexico and northeastern Texas in the 1960s. Rising Rocky Mountains, logging camps and The once popular tourist spots and curiosity shops are carefully crafted in miniature.

Some of TrainTopia’s many features include a bustling downtown Dallas street scene and the famous Palo Duro drive-in with a real movie. This fun, self-guided experience is suitable for all ages. Reserve a time slot and buy your TrainTopia tickets in advance.

Vintage Railroad Grapevine

636 Main Street S.
Grapevine, Texas 76051

Hop onto SH-121 and head west to experience the Grapevine Vintage Railway. Climb aboard an authentic 1920s Victorian coach for a train ride that connects Grapevine to the Fort Worth stockyards all year round! It’s so authentic you’ll swear a train heist is going to happen anytime. Don’t miss their special themed rides, like the North Pole Express or the Easter Bunny Train.

For adults 21 and over, try the Jazz Wine Train or the Kiss Me I’m Irish Express. The Cotton Belt Depot is always busy with something fun; it’s an experience worth the short drive west.

Trains to Northpark

8687 N Central Expressway
Dallas, Texas 75225

For the past 34 years, The Trains at NorthPark has delighted generations of local families as one of the area’s premier vacation traditions in Dallas. The seasonal exhibit is available from mid-November to early January and benefits the Ronald McDonald House in Dallas.

Visitors of all ages will be wowed by the 500 meters of track that will take you on a whimsical train journey through America! Trains travel from New England’s fall foliage to San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge with stops en route to see New York City, Washington DC, Dallas, and the Southwestern Desert including the Grand Canyon and the Garden of the Gods. Over 70,000 visitors are entertained each season, so buy your tickets now!

Miniature railway in the forest park

1700, colonial promenade
pi. Worth, TX 76110

The Forest Park Miniature Railway dates back to the 1950s and offers cyclists a peaceful retreat around Fort. Worth’s Trinity Park. From the depot, the train heads east, then cuts north to cross the Trinity River on one of the train’s longest trestle bridges. The complete 5 mile circuit includes two depots, six bridges and plenty of scenery. It’s an affordable little adventure that kids will remember forever. Note: the train is cash only.

DART rail

The next time you’re heading to Big D for an adventure, hitchhike the DART rail. This train might not have the same railroad vibes as the “choo choo” variety, but kids love its speed! The DART Streetcar is a great way to get to Klyde Warren Park, the Dallas Zoo, or the Dallas Art Museum. The train is affordable and will drop you directly at your destination. It gets a bit crowded near major suburban stops, but is otherwise quite open.

If you’re riding with kids, consider starting your trip at Plano’s downtown train station. It’s a nice and long walk – plus there’s a playground at this stop!

Headed towards Fort. Value? The DART Rail can connect you to the Trinity Railway Express, which connects Dallas to Fort Worth and reaches many fun points in between. Consider buying a regional day pass, which allows you to ride all day. You’ll discover many great restaurants, shops, and other fun attractions along the way!

Party rental

How about renting a train for your child’s birthday party? These trackless trains are a big hit with the toddler’s birthday party crowd and a surprise start from the typical bounce house. Try Clown Around Party Rental, BounceNMore or B3Talent.

Unattended grill fire destroys two Spring Valley homes https://cprs-palestine.org/unattended-grill-fire-destroys-two-spring-valley-homes/ Mon, 29 Nov 2021 00:40:00 +0000 https://cprs-palestine.org/unattended-grill-fire-destroys-two-spring-valley-homes/ SPRING VALLEY – A blaze that started when flames spread from an unattended barbecue destroyed two Spring Valley homes on Saturday afternoon, fire officials said.

A blaze that started when flames spread from an unattended barbecue destroyed two Spring Valley homes on Saturday afternoon, fire officials said.

No one was injured, according to Heartland Fire & Rescue Department.

Firefighters were called around 12:30 p.m. about the San Bernardino Avenue fire near Date Street in the La Presa neighborhood.

An outdoor propane barbecue was in use and was temporarily unattended when the fire started in one of the homes, said Andy Lawler, division manager of San Miguel Fire & Rescue, which responded to the blaze.

The wood siding on the house caught fire from the grill, Lawler said. Then the fire spread from the side of the house to the attic, and eventually to the rest of the house.

Two people were in the house when the fire broke out, Lawler said. They tried to put out the fire, he said, but couldn’t find a fire extinguisher, so they called 911.

The fire eventually spread to the neighboring house. The neighbors who live in this house were out of town at the time, Lawler said.

Most of the fire took about 90 minutes to put out, Lawler said. It took a long time in part because it was difficult to get enough water, given that the houses are located on a hill, Lawler said. There was a fire hydrant about 800 feet down the hill, he said.

He also noted that the original house had underground space so there was a fire below grade that compromised the structure. A firefighter fell through the ground, Lawler said.

The fire caused more than $ 2 million in damage to homes and contents inside the homes, Lawler said.

Natalie Barber said the house where the fire started had been owned by her parents, Cynthia and Robert Hathcock, for more than 40 years. Her parents, as well as her sister and other members of her family, all lived there; now they’re all displaced, Barber said.

Barber’s mother returned from shopping on Saturday to find her house ablaze, Barber said. His mother ran inside to save the family’s two dogs, a miniature pinscher and an Anatolian Shepherd, and to make sure her son-in-law was not in the house. The family have three cats, but they couldn’t find them, Barber said.

The family lost clothes, childhood photos, wedding albums, heirlooms, memorabilia, custom-made family furniture, medications, documents and car keys, among others, Barber said . Barber’s father owns an accounting business and his computer and business records have all been destroyed, she said.

The family were only able to recover a few items from the fire, including documents and Barber’s sister’s wedding ring.

“We are devastated,” Barber wrote.

Barber launched a GoFundMe on Sunday morning to raise money for his family’s recovery.

“They appreciate any support,” Barber said of his parents.

Kilfeacle House, Kilfeacle, Co Tipperary Asking price: € 1.2m Agent: Savills Country (01) 6634357

Vknown as “Skinner Scully”, “Tyrant Scully” and “Lord Scully”, Tipperary-born landowner William Scully was such a horribly horrible landlord that his actions were successful in changing the laws here and in the States -United ; to provide additional protection to all tenants.

While claiming to be an English aristocrat, The Skinner would end up owning a quarter of a billion acres; more than the richest of the British gentry and only less than Queen Victoria.

Born in the 1820s in Kilfeacle in County Tipperary to a Catholic family, his father was lawyer Denys Scully, one of the leading activists for Catholic emancipation. Young William inherited property in Tipperary and became a speculator with a nose for a bargain.

Notorious owner William ‘Skinner’ Scully later in his life

As a young man, he traveled to the United States where he took advantage of the end of the war between the United States and Mexico by soliciting hundreds of demobilized soldiers who were rewarded with 160 acres of land each in territories newly acquired around Illinois. It is estimated that the Skinner bought over 150 of these plots for very little and drained the land for farming.

He used the assets to take out a massive bank loan (his family was on the board of Tipperary Bank, which later caused Ireland’s first bank crash when its owners “lost” the deposits). With his loan, Scully again purchased more land in Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska.

After the death of his wife, Margaret, Scully returned to expand further into Ireland and acquired property around Ballycohey in Tipperary.

The Skinner relished acting like his own bailiff and the first title he made was for shooting two young boys from the Bergin tenant family during a dispute over rent. The courts found him not guilty. But when he later broke into a tenant’s house at night and beat Ms. Teehan, he was given a year of forced labor to cool off his heels.

Renewing the leases on the land he had bought, the Skinner raised the rents, demanded in advance a quarter of the year’s money and the right to take the farmers’ crops at any time; or their new tenants could lose their homes and hit the road.

His real intention was to evict tenants en masse. They were all summoned to the Dobbins Hotel where he sat at a desk with a gun in front of him and an armed police guard by his side. But the tenants got what Scully was up to (he had eviction notices ready for everyone) and most mailed their rent payments. An enraged Scully raised a contingent of armed police and unleashed them. Attacking a house rented from the O’Dwyer family, Scully, an armed policeman and his bailiff were all shot dead in the first shooting of a group of defenders occupying the attic.

While the other two died at the scene, a blood-dripping Skinner attacked with his double-barreled breach magazine in one hand and a revolver in the other. Those present said he was shot at least six times by the contingent in the house. When Scully finally barged into the attic (they had climbed the ladder), he discovered the tenants had escaped through the roof. The event became known as the Battle of Ballycohey.

It was later reported from the police side that Scully first prepared himself by donning sheets of wire mesh armor under his clothes, like a bulletproof vest.

Genuinely alarmed that Scully would single-handedly spark an all-out insurgency, another local landlord, MP Charles Moore, stepped in to buy Scully’s land for The Skinner’s benefit. Reports of Scully’s behavior appeared in British newspapers and directly influenced Gladstone to pass what would become the Landlord and Tenant Act of 1870.

Finding his wicket somewhat sticky in Ireland, The Skinner returned to the United States, this time targeting the land supplies made to Civil War Union veterans. Soon he had accumulated 250,000 acres of American land and was again mistreating tenants, now in the thousands. His army of ground agents was soon known as the “Scully Scalpers”.

Petitions have been signed by tenants and landlord farmers in a number of different states; demanding that something be done about “Skinning Scully”. In American newspapers, the phenomenon of foreigners buying land and renting racks from locals has come to be known as “Scullyism”.

One historian wrote: “No border landlord in the whole country has caused so much trouble among their tenants and been the object of such resentment and political turmoil as William Scully.

Petitions and campaigns against Scully eventually led 10 states, including the four in which he owned land, to introduce laws preventing absent “foreign” owners from acquiring land.

The Skinner was on the ground but not out. He applied for naturalization and finally, in 1902, he became a United States citizen. But threatened again, he sold 20 pc and headed for London, where he died in 1908. William ‘Skinner’ Scully left American land equivalent to Barbados x 2 and today worth the equivalent of $ 300 million.

The music room leading to the living room

Kilfeacle House, built in Georgian style, stands on what was the original Scully estate. His antics, and those of other heady figures of a historic powder magazine location (Soloheadbeg is just off the road), have fascinated former English-born international banker Edward O’Sullivan since he and his wife were born. in Derry, Marianne, moved to Ireland to buy the house 20 years ago.

“We weren’t told about Irish history at all at school in England,” says O’Sullivan, whose parents were both Irish emigrants to the UK and who has since become an avid enthusiast. of tradition, to the point that he now writes. a history book. This local knowledge came in handy for the couple, who have a long history of running a hospitality business from home and believe they have hosted over 30 nationalities there (in addition to hosting big opera nights). “It took us about six months to fit out the house and two years later we had the cottages restored,” says Edward.

But Covid-19 and the departure of their adult children gave the O’Sullivans food for thought and now they are selling. The property comprises the main house of 400 m², three chalets of three, two and one bedroom.

From the entrance porch, you enter a large reception hall. Off these are the five large receptions: the dining room, the living room, the living room and the breakfast room. There is also a large kitchen and a covered terrace on this floor.

Upstairs is a substantial library landing and a master bedroom suite which includes a full bathroom and walk-in closet. There are five other bedrooms on this floor (four ensuite) as well as a family bathroom. Outside there is a summer house and a sauna.

The prize is 1.2 million euros via Savills Country. “Of course, we also learned that O’Sullivan means ‘the one-eyed chef’,” says Edward, who now has his eye on a house in sunny Portugal.

The house would suit those looking to sell an upscale home in town and move into country living with land attached.

A revenue stream has already been established as the O’Sullivans have a long-standing vacation rental business here that deploys all three cabins as well as the main house. Fortunately for the locals, the wealthy “skinners” in today’s US are much more city-focused when it comes to their speculative scalpings.

Easter is coming early this year, thanks to an exhibition that has just opened at the Victoria & Albert Museum (V&A) in London, dedicated to Russian goldsmith Carl Fabergé and his iconic eggs. After a lengthy tour, the show lands in London, where the largest collection of Imperial Easter Eggs will be on display, many of them for the first time in the UK. The show also has a section dedicated to the little-known branch of Faberge business which was located in London and catered to a sophisticated and elitist fringe of Edwardian society.

“The story of Carl Fabergé, the legendary Russian Imperial goldsmith, is one of supreme luxury and unparalleled craftsmanship,” exhibition curators Kieran McCarthy and Hanne Faurby said in a statement. Through the opulent creations he created, the curators added, the show “explores timeless stories of love, friendship and unashamed social escalation.”

With more than 200 objects on display, the exhibition focuses on the man behind the jewelry brand, his almost synonymous association with Russian elegance and the imperial family, and the Anglo-Russian bond forged in part by the works of Fabergé. . The Romanovs, the ruling family of Russia, were important patrons of Faberge and helped cement his role in high society as the official goldsmith of the imperial court. Her bespoke gifts, made of crystal, gold, and rose-cut diamonds, often incorporated miniature portraits of family members and were traded between relatives.

The second part of the exhibition explores how Fabergé took over from his father in the family business and helped propel it to new heights, fostering an atmosphere of unprecedented creativity and craftsmanship. Ultimately, the company that once looked after Russian Emperor Nicholas II and Empress Alexandra Feodorovna, as well as King Edward VII of England, King George V, Queen Mary and the Queen Victoria, was forced to turn to aid in the war effort when Russia entered World War I in 1914, when it began providing ammunition instead of miniature treasures.

Although it has ceased production, Fabergé’s legacy has endured and will surely continue to fascinate visitors as they learn about the history of the design house.

Below, check out the highlights of the exhibition, on view until May 2, 2022.
