Forum solicits opinions
regarding water access

A dmiral    Heights residents are fortunate to have
water access through community-owned properties
along Weems Creek. But how best should these
resources be used?
    That was the question posed at a Community
Forum this month attended by about 25 residents.
The Admiral Heights Improvement Association is
currently reviewing needs and plans for water
access properties, principally Heineman Park
(Dewey Drive), Ackerland Park (Williams Drive)
and the Halsey Property (on Halsey Drive).
       Held jointly by ARIA with the Admiral
Heights Boat Club, the session was moderated by
resident Larry Freed, and generated a long list of
proposals     and concerns. Among the more                                 Annual Halloween Party

                                                        Selecting Colors
   Let's look first at the basics of color theory.
                                                             There are several ways to select colors for rooms.
Below is a color wheel:
                                                        You can match an inspiration item, such as a piece
                                                        of artwork, a fabric or a rug. Pulling colors from an
                                                        inspiration is an easy place to start. Usually these
                                                        colors have been put together by an expert so most
                                                        of the work is done for you. You can follow the
                                                        inspiration exactly in color and amount of color or
                                                        you can vary your approach.
                                                               For example, working from a landscape
                                                        painting that is mostly blue and green with a small
                                                        amount of brown and red, you may create a room
                                                        that is mostly blue and green with accents of brown
                                                        and red. But as a variation, you can create a room
                                                        that is mostly green and brown with accents of red
                                                        and blue.
                                                             Another approach is to draw inspiration from
                                                        your surroundings. You can create a room that
                                                        reflects what you see outside your window-or even
                                                        what you saw outside your window on vacation.
                                                        Nature is a great source of color inspiration.
                                                             I once traveled to the island of Saba, where the

                                                        of yellow and brown. I used those colors as the

          New place; same 4th fun!

           ADMIRAL HEIGHTS annual Fourth of July bike Parade was moved this year to Goodrich
           Road, and the location seemed well received, with perhaps the biggest turnout ever!
           Everyone liked the accompanying        barbecue, too. Pictures here show participants
           starting the parade past a City fire truck, watching from the curb and lining up for the
           awards announcement.
