It was a rare, precious afternoon for me. Dixie Dew and I were settled deeply into an easy chair with legs flopped across the ottoman. She snored and I read, enjoying every delicious moment of a wonderful biography on Jackie Kennedy. Nearby, Tink was doing research for a project when his phone beeped a message. It was from a writer friend of his in Los Angeles who was writing an episode of a television series to set in Marietta, a town just west of Atlanta. Since the series will be filmed in Canada, I hope they can find some Georgia pines and big magnolias there. Aloud, Tink read the message to me. His friend has just written in the script, “In a tavern, just off I-20, near the Savannah River. Now, I consider myself to be fairly smart. I particularly consider myself to be smart about my native state of Georgia, which 10 previous generations of my family have called home. We didn’t help to found the state, but we helped to build it and we sure as shooting helped to defend it during every war, beginning with the one for independence from England. I know its pig trails, dirt roads, interstates, rivers and tributaries as well as any man who has ever settled down for a spell in the Governor’s mansion in Atlanta. I have been in each of its 159 counties and had speaking engagements in almost every town of over 3500 people. So knowing all that and keeping in mind that I am fairly smart, you would think that I would not have looked at my husband with a frozen, stupid expression. You would think I would have spoken with certainty and clarity, that I wouldn’t have stammered, “Savannah River. ” You would also think that I, a woman who knows and loves the Peach State, would never have picked up her iPad to Google “Savannah River. You would think. But you’d be wrong. When my mind is right, I know that the Savannah River runs down the Georgia-South Carolina border into Savannah. When my brain finally, a couple of minutes later, gave way to the good common sense that I normally possess, I remembered that I-75, not I-20, runs through Marietta. This is scary. Someone in Hollywood who has never set foot in the South, let alone the state of Georgia, caused me to doubt what I know so well. Of course, these are the same people who managed to stigmatize the people of the mountains with a movie called “Deliverance” and satirize the dirt poor, Depression-era South in “Tobacco Road. ” Both movies, of course,.

LAS VEGAS — JB Innovations, a home furnishings sourcing and supply chain management company that has built its U. S. business over the past 11 years primarily as a supplier of private label brands, will introduce its first branded furniture... The company has taken a 600-square-foot showroom in space B-200-10 and will debut the Mosumo lifestyle brand of furniture, encompassing fabric and leather sofas, occasional chairs and ottomans, dining sets, headboards and bar stools. “The brand comes from Japanese culture and the word ‘Sumo’,” said Jessica Zhang, chief marketing officer and COO of JB Innovations. “When a baby is born they are taken to the Sumo House, which symbolizes longevity, strength and sturdiness. This is what we want the brand to convey for our furniture. She noted that the Mosumo collection is being positioned as a mid-priced “better” offering and a step above the company’s competitively priced private label offerings. Across the full breadth of its assortment, the company offers more than 12,000 items encompassing all types of upholstery, wood, metal and acrylics. Styles range from rustic to urban, and include sofas, occasional and accent chairs, recliners, ottomans, headboards, dining sets, accent tables and accessories. According to Zhang, indoor and outdoor furniture represents approximately 80% of the company’s business. JB Innovations’ primary manufacturing facility is in Shenzhen, China, which Zhang said currently produces about 100 containers a month. The company has established a warehouse in Elizabeth, N. J. , and expects to offer lead times of 30 to 45 days, depending on individual item availability. Stylistically, the Mosumo collection is aimed at the urban contemporary looks currently popular in big box lifestyle stores — a segment the company has been serving through its private label activities.

His resume is impressive. He was successful in his family’s business, the manufacture and marketing of home safes. In April 1910, he came to Sarasota from Chicago for a fishing trip and decided to buy 75 percent of the city for $35,000. The 41-year-old apparently saw some potential in the “sleepy fishing village” — which indeed it was, as opposed to the one... In 1912, he met the lovely, 18-year-old Vernona Hill Freeman. She was vacationing here with her family, and when they stepped on the train back to Massachusetts, Owen jumped aboard with the intent of winning her heart, and her family’s approval. He had 1,300 miles of rail in which to get the job done. More than enough. After a storybook June wedding in Sarasota, Burns set about creating a modern city. His contemporary, the famous Chicago socialite Bertha Palmer, concentrated on agricultural interests after coming to Sarasota in February 1910 and building a home at Spanish Point in Osprey. But Burns chose to take the frontier edge off the village by erasing the muddy bay shore with seawalls. He paved streets and developed both residential and commercial properties. Burns “probably did more to make Sarasota a successful city than any other single individual,” wrote historian Jeff LaHurd in his 2006 book “Sarasota: A History. Burns was an established developer by the time the Florida Land Boom arose in the early 1920s. In 1924-25, he developed Laurel Park and Washington Park, middle-class subdivisions for merchants and working professionals just south of downtown. He started Citizens Bank and the Sarasota Yacht Club. He teamed with John Ringling to develop the keys. He used his two sand dredges to fill shorelines — no longer legal — and create saleable real estate. Also in 1925, he built the cottages of Burns Court and the El Vernona Hotel. It was all happening fast, too fast. Across the state, real estate speculation was rampant. Buying property “binders” that required just 10 percent down, the investors’ goal was to resell the binders at a profit and get rich quick. A lot of people did get rich, but they failed to get out. Instead of taking their winnings from the Florida land casino, they re-invested on more binders. Eventually, a number of factors caused the speculative bubble to burst. Bottom line, “we ran out of suckers,” said one real estate promoter, as investors with barely enough money for gas. Source: realestate.heraldtribune.com
