WASHINGTON — A newly redecorated White House State Dining Room was unveiled last week, featuring peacock blue and ecru-striped silk draperies, among other historically inspired changes. The room was last updated in 1998 by the Clinton administration. The White House says the mahogany arm chairs along the walls and the side chairs are based on chairs that President James Monroe acquired for the East Room in 1818. The chairs were custom-made in North Carolina. The chairs and draperies complete the refurbishment which began in 2012 when custom-made wool rugs were made for the State Dining Room. The White House said the rugs were inspired by the room’s ceiling plasterwork. The refurbishment was done in accordance with plans approved by the Committee for the Preservation of the White House in close consultation with first lady Michelle Obama. The White House said all portions of the three-year makeover were funded by the White House Endowment Trust, a fund administered by the White House Historical Association for the maintenance and beautification of the public rooms. The State Dining Room is used for events including formal dinners held for visiting heads of state. The room seats about 140 guests. The White House says the room — which has previously been used as a drawing room, office and Cabinet room — before it formally became known as the “State Dining Room” during the Andrew Jackson administration.

UW police said the chairs were taken between June 11 and June 13. Each chair is worth $250, making for total loss of $4,000. Thefts continue to be a problem at the terrace despite the addition of an overnight security guard, according to police. Police are asking for people to be on the lookout for union chairs that are off-campus. Some colors are available for purchase, but any green, orange, or yellow union chair that’s off campus is likely stolen property. If you see a green, orange, or yellow chair, please call UWPD to file a report. The fine for being caught with a stolen chair could be as much as $500. Source: www.channel3000.com
A former College of the Ouachitas student is seeking $75,000 in damages from the state for two fingers broken during a classroom game of musical chairs. Robin Earnest, 46, of Saline County filed a claim with the Arkansas Claims Commission in November 2011, about seven months after she injured her hand during what was supposed to be a "motivation exercise. Earnest and two other students in her psychology class were vying for one available seat when the accident occurred. Earnest won the game but said she was wounded in the process. On Thursday, she told the commission that she was compelled to participate in order to earn class credit. She argued that the game was unsafe and that the organizer negligently failed to abide by universally recognized musical chair rules. The state should pay her, she said, for the ordeal, which resulted in years of surgeries and physical therapy, plus mental and emotional distress. Attorneys with the Arkansas attorney general's office denied the school in Malvern was negligent. They said Earnest admitted long ago that she'd damaged her hand while helping someone move. The commission heard a few hours of testimony Thursday but didn't issue a ruling. If commissioners determine the state was negligent, Earnest will be given a separate hearing to determine damages. According to documents filed with the commission, Earnest, a Texas native, and her husband are both on federal disability and support themselves and their children with payments from the state. Earnest, who was on the dean's list at the time, told commissioners that she took part in the musical chairs game because she didn't want to forfeit "participation points" that were available. Video of the March 17, 2011, competition showed Earnest and six classmates competing for three chairs. eventually only three competitors and one seat remained. With a beverage koozie and bragging rights up for grabs, the contestants jostled for position. Earnest said she was pushed and banged her hand against the back of the metal chair and she "instantly" felt pain. At Thursday's hearing, her attorney, Robert Cortinez, argued the instructor, June Prince, did not follow the standard rules for musical chairs and that Earnest felt obligated to participate for fear of her grade. It was unreasonable, she maintained, for the state to have three people jockeying for just one seat. Source: www.nwaonline.com
