    Friends work to open brewpub in downtown Clare - March 17, 2015 by admin

    CLARE (AP) Having grown up in Clare, Amy Shindorf knows about the luck of the Irish. She also believes that every small Irish community should have a brewpub.

    Shindorf believes in living life with luck, and she has a vision of what should be included in downtown Clare.

    Shindorf and brewmaster Brad Bellinger are in the process of bringing a brewpub to the Gateway to the North, the Morning Sun reports.

    Located in a century-old building at 412 N. McEwan St., Four Leaf Brewing named for the lucky four-leaf clover in the Irish tradition will offer 12 craft brews on tap, including six regulars and six seasonal and experimental beers.

    Shindorf and Bellinger, who have been friends for years, were at the building recently looking over how the renovation is going and discussing what they see in the business, which they hope will be open this spring.

    Or, as Bellinger said, in time for people to start their northern adventures.

    Although Four Leaf Brewing wont be a classic Irish brewpub, it will feature stout and Irish ale.

    Shindorf said renovations are about three-fourths finished on the custom brew house.

    Shindorf, a former manager at Isabella County Recycling who is still passionate about being green, said that being friends with Bellinger over the years has been a learning experience because of his expertise in beer brewing.

    Wanting to be her own boss and stand behind a product she believes in prompted Shindorf to go into the beer business with Bellinger.

    Minnesota Avenue: Businesses work to build street with rich legacy into a destination - March 15, 2015 by admin

    Tammy and Melody Fletcher take old pieces of furniture and make them new again, and theyve found the perfect place for their shop, For the Funk of It, in downtown Billings.

    The Billings couple are artists and veterans of auctions and estate sales, hunting through forgotten items that could become treasures in their new shop at 2702 Minnesota Ave.

    With upholstery and creativity, they can flip discarded $10 dining room chairs for more than a hundred dollars. An old bicycle could be a fountain just replace the seat with a basin and run a water line past the spokes to create a funky conversation piece for the home.

    We like to introduce a lot of colors into peoples homes and make it fun, said Tammy.

    The Fletchers opened For the Funk of It in February, the newest business to pop up on one of Billings oldest streets. They have big plans to boost foot traffic, like parking their Flaming Ladies food truck out front during warm weather and holding a street fair, and they want to honor their neighborhoods history. Minnesota Avenue dates back to the founding of Billings and was once a bustling, raucous cultural center.

    In recent years, Minnesota has been plagued by vacancies and blight, and improvement efforts have stalled. The city designated the area as an historic district in 2009, but business owners say they need more help to continue redevelopment of the streets core and reclaim its status as a Billings destination point.

    There certainly is some unrealized potential there that were trying to realize, said Randy Hafer, owner of High Plains Architects at 2720 Minnesota Ave. and a major driver of the streets redevelopment in recent years.

    If Montana Avenue is the golden child of downtown Billings, then Minnesota Avenue is its spunky stepsister. The two

    streets were named after the Montana & Minnesota Land Co., which oversaw Billings first developments in the 1880s along the rail lines.

    Montana runs along the north side of the railroad tracks, with Minnesota running along the south side. Minnesota starts at the Montana Rail Link building on its west end, runs for about a dozen blocks through the center of town, then curves under the tracks at the Phillips66 refinery and spills into North 13th Street.

    Animal rescue organization to open facility in Rantoul - March 15, 2015 by admin

    Photo by: Bradley Leeb/The News-Gazette

    Jessica Sempek and Scott Stewart are founders of Hospice Hearts Sanctuary. Sempek is now working on opening a Rantoul shelter for special-needs animals. Sempek's latest effort will be to help bring an animal shelter to Rantoul. She's a board member with Catsnap, which will own the facility.

    RANTOUL A central Illinois animal rescue organization will open a shelter for special-needs animals this year in Rantoul.

    Catsnap will open the facility, which will provide veterinary services for animals owned by low-income people.

    Jessica Sempek, a Catsnap board member, said the shelter will be opened at 318 S. Garrard St. Remodeling of the facility, which formerly housed an orthodontist's office, is ongoing.

    "We initially thought of a property in Rantoul because of how affordable commercial real estate is," Sempek said.

    Sempek said the "ambitious" goal would be to be open by the summer, but the "more realistic" goal would be the fall.

    A core of 10-15 volunteers is helping with the planning and other work. Residents of Rantoul's Jesus is the Way Prison Ministry will be doing some of the heavy lifting, including pulling up carpet and other tasks.

    The 3,200-square-foot facility will serve cats and dogs. About 1,200 square feet of shelter space will be available.

    Sempek said Catsnap intends for the facility to be cage-free for sheltering. There will be community cat rooms in the basement that closely resemble a home environment.

    Woodside, developer find compromises on mansion - March 12, 2015 by admin

    The remodeling of the 7,423-square-foot main house and accessory structures at 360 Mountain Home Road in Woodside is evolving, though with fewer surprises than was the case 10 months ago.

    Planning Director Jackie Young and the Architectural and Site Review Board agreed to a set of revisions to site plans on March 2, Ms. Young said. The town's conversation with the applicant, SV Projects LLC, has been going on since December.

    The result is a modified version of what had been "much more formal and intense" proposals that were "inconsistent with several aspects of the Residential Design Guidelines," Ms. Young said. "We found acceptable compromises."

    Among the compromises: front gates will have a more rural style, three sets of stairs will be less formal, exterior lighting will be set to a minimum, and a pool patio structure and a garden structure will have bronze siding and roofs, Ms. Young said.

    The applicant had proposed using the same stone siding and slate roofs planned for the main house. But that would have complicated an observer's ability to distinguish the main house and accessory structures, creating a perception of a more massive complex, staff said.

    All existing upward-pointing exterior lights must go, and lighting in the basement lightwell and garden structure must be kept to a minimum, per the town's codes, Ms. Young said. The pylons at the entrance gates originally had metal caps, but those, too, must go.

    The applicant agreed to these changes, but is planning to ask the Planning Commission for "a height exception" to overturn the ASRB's recommendation against a proposal for two more dormers on the roof of the main house, Ms. Young said.

    The process is orderly, unlike in May 2014. Town staff visited the site and were surprised to find the top two floors of the main house elevated on steel beams above an empty space where the first floor and basement had been.

    Permission had been given to elevate the house, but for the purpose of removing the basement only, not the first floor or its framing. Ms. Young issued a stop-work order on July 3.

    After much discussion, the Planning Commission split on the matter on July 31, leaving it unresolved. The applicant appealed to the Town Council, which unanimously granted the appeal Sept. 9. Work resumed.

    New Yorks Petri Plumbing Acknowledges Flood Awareness Month - March 12, 2015 by admin

    Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) March 12, 2015

    Petri Plumbing and Heating, Inc., a leading plumbing company serving Brooklyn since 1906, recognizes March as Flood Awareness Month by offering useful tips to prepare homeowners for the flood season. According to the New York Daily News, last years torrential downpour not only threatened lives, but it caused structural damage to the Brooklyn Bridge. With the memory of last years damages and the realization that flood season is on the horizon, Brooklyn homeowners are encouraged to take proper action in order to protect their homes, belongings, and loved ones.

    Brooklyn is definitely not exempt from the risk of flood damage, and we got a taste of that last July, said Petri. Especially with all of the old homes in this city, it is important we prepare for the unthinkable.

    In order to take preventative measures for the oncoming flood season, Petri Plumbing offers home plumbing inspections to safeguard each homes sewer lines against the threat of a potential flood. In the event that preventative measures were not taken or were not enough, Petri Plumbing also offers 24 hour emergency plumbing as well.

    Sewer lines can be affected by backups throughout flood season, which can lead to seepage and a dangerous living space as a result. In an effort to avoid this condition, backflow prevention systems should be installed, replaced, or inspected in order to ensure all sewer lines stay clear. When sewer lines are clear, a home is free of dangerous gasses and bacteria. For optimal performance, yearly backflow prevention tests are also encouraged.

    More often than not, the site of water damage and mildew is located in the basement, said Petri. We can prevent water from coming into your Brooklyn home by installing a sump pump in the basement so that the groundwater can be safely collected and discharged from the property.

    Some additional routine precautions residents can take include investing in a flood insurance policy, elevating appliances twelve inches, anchoring appliances that cannot be elevated, and storing high value items in higher places.

    To learn more about Petri Plumbing, call 718-748-1254 or visit:
