(Family Features) When thinking about your dream kitchen, what finish style of cabinets come to mind? Is it rich dark stained cherry wood? Maybe a clean, crisp white paint? Do you picture yourself having a rustic kitchen complemented by different techniques?
(Family Features) With so much time spent in the bathroom, it is important to give that space a little TLC like the rest of the home. Almost everyone that enters your home sees your bathroom. From changing accessories to a total bath remodel, it is important that it receives a little refreshment. A bathroom should be an oasis, and the environment that it displays directly correlates with just how relaxing it is.
(BPT) - Bathroom remodels are one of the most popular home improvement projects and they provide impressive return on investment. While plenty of focus goes into selecting the perfect tile or ideal shower surround, there’s one critical area that too often is overlooked: the lighting.

The Oro Valley Town Council has really done it now. They’ve stepped in places that they know nothing about and it has a very unpleasant odor. How does the objective of building a Recreation Center for the Town of Oro Valley wind up with buying 45 holes of golf at a golf course that has never turned a profit, at least of the past eight years that I am familiar with. With all the outside play, member play, food service, and special events centered around golf, El Conquistador CC has always had to be subsidized by the Hilton Hotel operation. Guess what, no hotel in this picture. Sure, Troon Golf is a great managing outfit, and will do their upmost to make the golf profitable. But, they are getting paid by the owners and if the owners don’t have the money to support Troon’s plans then what? I’ll tell you what..... All the hard work the Council has done to keep Oro Valley in the positive financial side of the ledger, will be for not. I applaud the Council for all their efforts on behalf of our community, in times that have most cities in the red. But here, in spite of critics on the other side, golf is not growing as most clubs are losing members still. Further, the younger set – which golf needs to sustain growth – is more captured by soccer and other sports.
From U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle’s position atop decrepit buildings in Iraq, his hidden presence seemed like anything but unknown to those in his close proximity. U.S. ground troops, going door-to-door searching for insurgents, gained confidence knowing that America’s best-ever sniper was providing them over-watch protection from high above. Enemy forces also grew to know of Kyle’s legendary marksmanship skills and close whereabouts, witnessing their al-Qaeda in Iraq members dropping dead after each single shot from Chris’ rifle. No one, however, was more aware of Chris Kyle’s presence and four tours of duty in Iraq than his wife, Taya Kyle, left behind in San Diego. It’s that marriage and relationship between Chris and Taya Kyle that “American Sniper” steadies upon, takes aim at, and, ultimately scores a direct hit for viewers. Between sighting in terrorist targets and actually pulling the trigger as Kyle, Oscar-nominated actor Bradley Cooper must control his breathing—the same task moviegoers must master in this heart-pounding, emotional true story.
