    Rights of Way and Easements: You Can't Do Much about Them
    Up & Coming Weekly
    No permanent structures like sheds, swimming pools, decks, gazebos or sometimes trees or fences. If you do, and the utility needs access to the ground underneath, they'll move it at your expense. Easements and rights of way come in different sizes.

    BWW Review: MY FAIR LADY at Atlanta Lyric Theatre – Broadway World - September 1, 2017 by admin

    In June, the New York Post reported that Colin Firth, who is rumored to have turned down the role of Henry Higgins in the upcoming, highly-anticipated 2018 Lincoln Center revival of My Fair Lady, might still be considering the role. Just a few days ago, they claimed that Lauren Ambrose could be our next Eliza Doolittle. These recent tidbits come on the heels of at least a dozen other Post articles over the last several years speculating on casting and direction for the slow-starting revival. And why does New York's love-to-hate chatterbox keep landing on My Fair Lady gossip? For the same reason we want to read it. It's a story that we can't get enough of. And why can't we get enough of it? Easy. We are obsessed with the familiar Pygmalion story: boy meets plain old girl, boy molds plain old girl into new-and-improved perfect girl, boy is fabulously happy. The thing that makes My Fair Lady a Pygmalion story that rises above its mythological predecessor, as well as many other pop culture retellings, is that the plain old girl in this one, once she is transformed into new-and-improved perfect girl, recognizes what she has lost in the bargain and actually holds the boy accountable for it. That's a good story. A relevant story. An important story. And Atlanta Lyric Theatre, in their current production under the direction of Scott Seidl, tells the story quite well. With an excellent cast, led by popular Atlanta actor Galen Crawley in her gorgeous turn as Eliza Doolittle, and some of the best music to hit the Atlanta stages this summer, the production is definitely one to celebrate.

    The Lerner and Loewe tuner tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a Cockney flower girl, who seeks out speech lessons from Henry Higgins, a bachelor and notable phoneticist, in hopes of improving her social station by securing a position as a lady in a flower shop. Higgins, eager to showcase his speech training skills to his friend, Colonel Pickering, takes on the new pupil, but he doesn't bargain on Eliza teaching him as much as he teaches her.

    The biggest boasting right for this production belongs to the music under the direction of Paul Tate. There is no weak link among the players in this area. Every note is a sheer delight, and the choice to flank the stage with two pianos that provide the entirety of the show's accompaniment is an inspired one. The big voices, relieved of the challenges that a full orchestra presents, are shown to their best advantages.

    The production also boasts some great acting. Galen Crawley is the jewel in the production's crown. She plays a Cockney flower girl exactly as convincingly as she does a refined lady of high society. And that doesn't happen very often. In addition, she brings an infectious energy and spunk to her role that stabilizes the performances around her. George Deavours as Alfred Doolittle, Karen Howell as Mrs. Higgins, and Chris Saltalamacchio in the role of Freddy Eynsford-Hill also deliver Great Performances. Rob Roper, returning to the stage after a 30-year hiatus, is excellent in the role of Colonel Pickering, so excellent, in fact, that Mark Bradley Miller in the role of Henry Higgins often finds himself dangerously close to being upstaged. Miller plays a very mild Higgins here, and that's a little problematic, both because it causes him to throw away a lot of jokes and because a number of his epiphanic moments never realize their full potential.

    Any good discussion of the talent of this cast must include a mention of the ensemble work. This ensemble, most notably in the street scenes and the Ascot opening day scene, beautifully executes Ashley Chasteen's delightfully fresh choreography. In addition, they provide such gorgeous mise en scne that just their presence could have solved this production's biggest problem.

    That biggest problem - and it is so often a problem for productions of My Fair Lady - is the set design. Lee Shiver-Cerone starts with a wonderful idea, those two aforementioned pianos flanking the stage. The pianos are housed inside large gazebos. Also wonderful. But those pianos in gazebos beg for attention, and because Shiver-Cerone never divorces himself fully from old, tired My Fair Lady scenic ideas that involve heavy backdrops and big wooden staircases, he gets into a jam. Nearly every stage picture that doesn't allow the pianos to be in their rightful place as focal points is blemished by the unwanted intrusion of...well... two pianos in gazebos.

    On the whole, the Atlanta Lyric Theatre has put on a decidedly loverly production of My Fair Lady. If you want to hear those old familiar songs sung about as well as they can be sung, the Atlanta Lyric Theatre is the place to be this month.

    My Fair Lady plays through September 3. For tickets and information, visit

    9 ways to create shade to beat the outdoor heat.

    By Steve Asbell, Houzz

    Summer doesn't have to send you and your guests clinging to the comforts of air conditioning, especially if you're willing to make your backyard a little more inviting with the addition of some welcome shade, air movement or maybe a splash of water. By incorporating one or more of these cool features into your outdoor space, you'll find yourself spending more and more time enjoying your extra square footage outdoors.

    1. Gazebos.Think back to that clubhouse you had a kid; gazebos are like clubhouses for adults. Serving both as shelter and focal point, a well-situated and thoughtfully designed gazebo is sure to become the star attraction of your outdoor gatherings, luring you and your guests out into the landscape.

    While building a gazebo might seem like a big to-do, a well-designed one is like the cherry on top of a sundae. Design yours to coordinate with the style of your home, and be sure to give it enough space to allow for open views.

    2. Porches. If your style is to stay closer to home, consider the porch. Front porches face out and open up to the world and are ideal for reading the morning's news or enjoying sweet tea at sunset, while back porches are for parties and barbecues.

    You can utilize your existing porch or make modifications if you already have one, or you can build one out as an addition. You can easily dress up an underused porch with comfortable seating and side tables, along with a set of planted hanging baskets. More ambitious projects can include adding gingerbread trim, a tin roof or new wood flooring.

    3. Pergolas.Though traditionally planted with vines to cover walkways in the garden, many pergolas today are used as architectural elements and are given the same pride of place in the garden. Materials run the gamut from rustic and naturalistic willow branches to the wood or metal seen in modern interpretations like this modern oceanfront design.

    If you do decide to grow vines on your pergola, choose strong and woody vines that can support much of their own weight. A professionally installed pergola can handle a much heavier load than one installed from a kit.

    4. Shade trees.The easiest and most cost-effective way to add shade to your outdoor space is to plant shade trees such as the live oak trees (Quercus virginiana, zones 7 to 11) pictured here, and they certainly do their part to add beauty and charm to the neighborhood.

    The biggest downside is that they take time, but a quick fix is to buy balled and burlapped trees from the nursery that are already large enough to offer some shade. Much as with a puppy, you will also have to commit to caring for your new tree by keeping it well fed, watered and groomed, as well as by picking up its droppings. Unlike puppies, however, a well-cared-for tree can last for generations to come. Fall is usually the best time to plant new trees, but you can begin planning for the perfect spot now.

    5. Awnings. It used to be that awnings and canopies were confined to the edges of buildings, but today they've ventured out into the open like the wings of butterflies. Tensioned shade sails, like the ones shown here, take on the forms of wings when attached to nearby structures and bathe the space with captivating light. Other awnings are installed much like pergolas, but the different strips of fabric can be rolled up in different ways to shade the desired area.

    6. Fans. If it's still 95 degrees in the shade and too muggy to really enjoy yourself, a cool breeze will circulate the air to make the heat 8 degrees more bearable, as well as keep mosquitoes at bay. Available in chic brushed aluminum, or in styles made to look like palm fronds or rattan, ceiling fans somehow even manage to make an outdoor living area look more inviting. For the less ambitious homeowner, there are freestanding and clamp-on models that can be moved to where they're needed most.

    7. Misting systems.Our bodies produce sweat to act as a natural air conditioning system, evaporating and cooling the immediate area around our skin. Sweating is definitely one of nature's little miracles, but wouldn't you rather cool off without the body odor or salty residue? Misting systems spray a fine mist over your outdoor space like the fog surrounding a rain forest waterfall, and the cool breeze provided by a misting fan can make outdoor living very comfortable on even the hottest days.

    8. Swimming pools.Undoubtedly the most effective way to cool off, swimming pools have the effect of an oasis in the Sahara and even make landscapes look cooler by association. It's hard to look at this pool by Raymond Jungles and resist sighing a little and escaping into your imagination for a little dip.

    A swimming pool surrounded by nothing more than concrete and turf is nice and all, but not nearly as inviting as one that's been lushly landscaped. When planting around your pool, be sure to choose plants that are clean and don't drop too much leaf litter into the pool. Palms, bromeliads and cordylines are great choices for the tropics, while evergreen conifers and grasses work well for most other regions.

    9. Water features. It doesn't take an entire swimming pool to cool off a garden; just the soothing sounds of a small brimming urn or fountain will make a brutal summer day feel more manageable. Well-designed and maintained koi ponds provide a welcome distraction and endless entertainment, and water gardens attract wildlife and make the outdoor space appear cooler. Pondless water features such as the one shown here are ideal for small spaces and require less maintenance than full-scale ponds.

    Professionally installed water features are ideal where design and longevity are concerned, but budget-conscious homeowners can get their feet wet with a variety of products from precast fountains and brimming urns to plastic pond liners and waterfall kits.

    Antiques can add personality, focal point to a garden – San Mateo Daily Journal - August 24, 2017 by admin

    Adding antique garden ornaments to the landscape blends horticulture with history. One-of-a-kind pieces will personalize your property, and over time may grow into something richly rewarding financially as well as artistically.

    Really outstanding good old pieces such as a swan bench, unusual large decorative urn or piece of sculpture will continue to go up in value, but really more important to my client is the same artistic pleasure that placing a certain piece in their garden gives to them, said Aileen Minor, owner of Aileen Minor Garden Antiques & Decorative Arts in Centreville, Maryland.

    Some of her garden antiques have been installed in the U.S. Capitol, the Smithsonian Institution, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and in private collections around the United States, Germany, England and France.

    The definition of antique is somewhat elastic but generally applies to objects more than 100 years old.

    What makes a piece worth collecting? I would say rarity, design detail, all original parts and age, Minor said.

    Garden antiques are most commonly made of wicker, metal or stone, and range from pergolas and gazebos to cemetery headstones and fountains, from ironwork, fencing and gates to outdoor furniture and windows.

    Family heirlooms certainly qualify.

    Each person has his or her own idea about what constitutes a collectible, said Troy Rhone, owner of Troy Rhone Garden Design in Birmingham, Alabama.

    Typically, I look for pieces that are over 120 years old and have a unique history, Rhone said. Im not as concerned about the price because Im usually looking for a specific item for my gardens.

    Rhone studies each piece to determine if there are markings to determine who made it, signs of wear and tear, and areas that might deteriorate quickly.

    Not many pieces can stand the test of time when exposed to weather, so using pieces that have proved their sustainability is something most people are drawn toward, Rhone said.

    Many people shape their garden antique collections around a theme. Some may want to match a Victorian-era setting, highlighting the looks of their home and neighborhood. Others simply want practical antiques spotted tastefully around their landscape.

    Collectors do collect pieces based on forms such as antique hitching posts or interesting sculpture, Minor said. But more often they are looking to find unusual pieces such as a fountain for a focal point in a garden, or are looking for an attractive antique or vintage bench or settee for seating in their garden.

    Estate sales, auctions and antique dealers are good places to look, Rhone said. They can be a great resource when searching for a specific item. Most of the time its pretty easy to have shipping arranged.

    Living at a time when so much is mass-produced, its nice to have something that no one else has, Rhone said.

    That is easily accomplished with an antique that was handmade, he said. No one else is likely to have that exact piece so it allows a space to have individuality, which is what makes one garden stand out from the rest.

    Secure them, though. High-end antique pieces are prime targets for thievery.

    Owasso City Council approves major mixed-use planned unit development project – Tulsa World - August 19, 2017 by admin

    On Tuesday, Owasso City Council approved a major new mixed-use planned unit development (PUD) for the area.

    The project, named Emery Village, will feature both commercial and residential properties stretching across 55 acres of land near 106th St. N. and Garnett Rd.

    In the planning stages for several months, the PUD will be constructed in five separate phases and consist of retail and shopping, offices and self-storage and private homes.

    Owasso Community Development Director Bronce Stephenson said the City developed the new property to continue its expansion efforts in the area of 106th and Garnett, which comprises several hundred acres of available land.

    As we had the intersection redone a couple years ago, weve expected that this area, in all directions from the intersection, would start to grow and to take off, he said. (Were) happy to see this area starting to develop a little bit.

    The new PUD will feature 495 high-end dwelling units, including 300 multi-family, 85 attached single-family (condos, duplexes, condos, etc.) and 110 traditional detached single-family, according to the site plan.

    It states Emery Village will be endowed with ample open spaces and possible amenities such as pools, clubhouses, playgrounds, sports courts, fountain ponds, picnic areas, trails and walkways, gazebos and more.

    (Were) trying to put together a product that we thought would be a good fit for Owasso that blends as well as it can with the surrounding properties and provides new housing and commercial opportunities, Stephenson said.

    The project, annexed under Ordinances 952 and 1098 and approved with Ordinance 1037, was developed as part of the Owasso 2030 Land Use Master Plan.

    Bill and Brian Emery of BAK Development LLC, who own Mingo Manufacturing and Mingo Aerospace in Owasso, have owned the land for around three years and recently partnered with the City of Owasso to develop Emery Village.

    Our goal is just to come up with the best use of the land that would work in harmony with the City of Owassos Master Development Plan, Brian said. Were just really excited to develop a new area of community for the people of Owasso.

    In addition to BAK Development, other partnering companies for the project include Tanner Consulting LLC and DRM Design Group out of Tulsa.

    Stephenson said Emery Village is one of around 18 residential projects comprising more than 1,800 lots or units currently in various stages of development across Owasso.

    (Thats) just a really, really significant number of lots and units available, which shows that Owasso continues to be a place where people want to be, Stephenson said.

    The projected timeframe of completion for the Emery Village PUD would be within the next couple years, with a pending starting date.

    Centennial Terrace is Summer – Toledo City Paper - August 19, 2017 by admin

    Laying out by the water, listening to cool tunes and maybe indulging in some evening music under the stars thats Centennial Terrace. Owned by the City of Sylvania, the concert venue and quarry plays host to popular summer events such as the Pizzapalooza, an annual Disco Party, and a slew of varied musical acts. Its the destination for fun in Sylvania when school is out while the sun is shining, or after it sets.

    James Chinni, event manager at Centennial Terrace, comes from a background as tour manager for rock bands over the last 20 years. Working with the likes of Stone Sour, Anthrax, Poison (where he was also Bret Michaels manager), and as a tour carpenter for The Rolling Stones, hes the perfect person to ensure that the summer music scene in Toledo stays hot.

    When you come off a tour, its hard to get a job doing what you do on the road. Its a special skill set, managing a venue. Usually the people who have these positions keep them. When this position became available, I took it, Chinni says of his decision to get involved with Centennial Terrace.

    Recent Centennial Terrace concerts include the 80s Explosion Costume and Dance Party, Tesla and Rob Zombie. The Make America Rock Again festival, featuring Scott Stapp and others, hits Centennial Terrace on Thursday, August 24.

    The new Centennial, with this stage, has been here around seven years. But its been around, historically, for a while, the Toledo native says with a shrug. A venue since 1939, opening as a Dance Under the Stars venue where big band leaders, and their charges, would entertain, the 10,000 sq ft. terrazzo-look, checkerboard dance floor is a holdover from that time. In the recent past, the venue has featured major acts including Rob Zombie, Kenny Loggins, Weird Al, The Doobie Brothers, Sheryl Crow and Alice Cooper.

    With capacity for a crowd of 3,000 for concert performances, but able to accommodate up to 4,500 for specialty events (such as the annual 4th of July fireworks party), the look of the venue, which also hosts weddings in its ornate gazebos, is an important facet. I did a show here with Bret Michaels four years before I started working here. So Ive played here with bands. And when we got here, you could just see from the stage, it looks nice. As for the future, Chinni says, We want to keep newer bands that are upcoming, coming to the venue so we can reach out to the younger crowd, too.

    Floating equipment, diving platforms and a giant twisting waterslide are just a few of the reasons Centennial Quarry should be your ultimate summer hub.

    Centennial Quarry has no problem attracting the younger crowd. A destination spot for teens and younger children, the water-filled quarry, adjacent to the concert venue, boasts a massive twisting slide and several inflatable trampolines, bouncers and floating platforms. A popular recreation spot since 1934, the quarry also has basketball and volleyball courts as well as barbecue areas and rows of beach chairs for tanning. Lifeguards require water-goers to pass a test to swim in the quarry, with an average depth of 22 feet.

    There are usually six [lifeguards] here on a daily basis, Brittany Meronk, special events coordinator, assures, so the kids will be well looked after. Open 3-7pm Monday through Friday and Noon-7pm on Saturdays and Sundays, the quarry costs $6 for day use, but you can buy an annual use pass for $90 or a family membership for $165.

    Upcoming events at Centennial Terrace include Make America Rock Again, a hard rock concert featuring Scott Stapp, Drowning Pool, Trapt and others, on Thursday, August 24. Centennial Terrace is located at 5773 Centennial Rd., Sylvania. 419-885-7106.

    Concord’s Rollins Park reforestation plan to begin with stump removal this fall – Concord Monitor - July 12, 2017 by admin

    The first phase of the reforestation plan at Rollins Park in Concord is set to begin this fall with stump removal, regrading and the construction of walking paths.

    Itll continue in the spring, using the remainder of the $160,000 set aside in the current budget to plant a diverse stock of young trees, Parks and Recreation Director David Gill said.

    The view of the South End park from Bow Street looks vastly different ever since heavy machinery swept through and removed hundreds of mature trees this winter. The pines there were infested with invasive bugs and had to be removed last winter before they died and became dangerous.

    When the weather warmed up, Gill and the citys planning department returned to the park to hold neighborhood meetings and determine what the next step should be for that space. Overwhelmingly, he said, the response was to replant trees and build some walking paths, a natural play area and an educational area.

    Another phase of the project about $90,000 is planned in the citys capital improvement program for the following year, Gill said, which could be used to realize another recommendation: gazebos.

    If thats approved in next years budget, we will look at installing the gazebos, but first and foremost is to get the area planted, get it presentable, he said.

    After the city council approved the first phase this week, Gill said hell send out later this month a request for proposal to do the work.

    Depending on pricing, the vision is to remove the stumps this fall, regrade this fall, install the walkways this fall, and next spring we will begin to replant the area, he said.

    Hes expecting to have enough money left over to plant 40 to 50 trees roughly 2 to 3 inches in diameter and 6 to 8 feet tall and a mix of species so that theyre more resistant to infections such as the red pine scale that doomed the previous plantation.

    Youre not putting baby trees in, he said. Theyre going to notice something right away.

    But even still, planners hoped to plant as many as 100 trees, so Gill said hes considering an adopt-a-tree program that would allow people in the neighborhood to round out the total. He said hes heard from the neighborhood meetings that people were interested in this idea.

    Folks could, if theyre interested, buy a tree, he said. Thered be various types and various costs for different types of trees, and thered be a plaque somewhere at the park thanking everybody who would adopt a tree.

    Gill said hed likely put together the details of that program this fall.
