Supporting Patriotism with At Home Décor Superstore

“We expect red, white and blue décor to be very popular in the next few months—especially with the Olympics around the corner,” said Alissa Ahlman, Chief Merchandising Officer for At Home. “We have a huge seasonal selection in stock that’s sure to cover every customer need.”

Fireworks and Uncle Sam aren’t the only ways to inspire guests with freedom. At Home offers these 5 tips for decorating this summer:

  1. Nothing feels more like home than a patchwork quilt made by grandma. We recommend adding comfort to the guest room with this Nautical Flag Bedding—it can stay out all year!
  2. Adding color to the dinner table is a subtle way to show your American spirit. We like using red wine glasses and blue dinnerware to bring life to meals.
  3. The indoors shouldn’t get all the décor love—placing a patriotic birdhouse in the backyard will spruce up an outdoor space. You can also light up the yard on Independence Day with metal or glass lanterns.
  4. Keeping the house organized can be difficult without the proper tools. Forgo the clutter with American Flag wooden trays and vintage baskets.
  5. Hanging a welcome sign will set the tone for guests’ initial experiences in your home. Why not celebrate Christmas in July with a Burlap American Flag wreath?

Here’s What You’ll Eat at Southern Kin, Open Next Week


By Scott Kearnan | May 25, 2016
By Scott Kearnan  |  May 25, 2016

A family of restaurants is about to add a new member: Southern Kin

That’s the latest from Boston Nightlife Ventures, the team behind Wink Nod, The Tap Trailhouse and Griddler’s Burgers + Dogs. Southern Kin, which is slated to open next Friday, June 3, will bring contemporary spins on classic Southern soul food to Somerville’s Assembly Row, a buzzing outpost of restaurants and retail space. Culinary director Bill Brodsky, former executive chef of Palmetto Cafe at The Charleston Place Hotel in South Carolina, says he took inspiration from different factions of Southern cooking: Creole, BBQ, and Lowcountry. It creates an amalgamation of eats that will be complemented by a 100-variety American whiskey program sampled either in flights or creative cocktails from beverage director Michael Boughton. Plus, you’ll find boozy frappes and tableside sweet tea service offered in a rustic Americana-style interior of reclaimed woods and industrial accents with 100 seats assembled by an open kitchen. (There’ll also be a 60-seat seasonal patio.) 

Ready to meet your new kin? Check out the full dinner menu here, and then browse through a selection of menu highlights below.

Investigation finds Palo Alto officer justified in fatal shooting of suicidal man wielding kitchen knife – KGO

New details have been released on a Christmas Day shooting in Palo Alto.

The Santa Clara County District Attorney released a video Tuesday showing Palo Alto police officers opening fire on a mentally ill man. Investigators now say the shooting was justified because the man came at them with a weapon.

It took 19 seconds before Palo Alto police shot William Raff on Christmas night.

The 31-year-old, who suffered from schizophrenia, called police from his group home claiming a violent person was on the loose.

When police arrived, they found Raff in the street, waiving a dinner knife. Facility staffers told police it was a butter knife.

“Just because someone is holding something that looks like a knife but when they know it’s just a butter knife, it’s not a situation where they get to kill a person every time,” said attorney Michael Haddad.

The district attorney’s report says the fact that the knife used by Raff was a dinnerware knife does not make the situation less threatening for the officers, or their actions less justified.

The knife used could be used to inflict a fatal wound or serious injury.

Investigators concluded Raff wanted to die at the hands of police.

Social justice advocates wonder if more could have been done to de-escalate things. Those in the neighborhood say they are just glad it’s over.

“This person had a disability so they had to have a different response from the onset,” said Liz Gonzalez of Silicon Valley De-Bug.

“It hasn’t made me feel any less safe or concerned,” said Arne Stokstad, a resident.

Next month, Raff’s mother will file a civil suit against the officers.

Senior PGA Rookie John Daly Talks


Among the new names at this year’s Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid is John Daly. Newly eligible for the senior tour, Daly has two major titles – the 1991 PGA Championship and the 1995 Open Championship. He spoke Wednesday about his impressions of Harbor Shores in his first visit here.

“Different,” Daly told reporters. “I think it’s very challenging, not just the greens, but even the fairways are difficult.” Daly noted he’s only played the course once so far, so he’s hoping the more he plays, the better he will be. As for joining the Senior PGA now that he’s 50, he joked “I’m old,” with a laugh, following up it’s nice to play the only sport where at 50 you can be a rookie again.

The 77th Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid gets underway Thursday and runs through Sunday at Harbor Shores in Benton Harbor. It will return to the area in 2018.
