    There could soon be a lot more artwork of all sorts scattered throughout town thanks to a new program unveiled Thursday.

    An ordinance will be introduced at Tuesday’s City Council meeting calling for the creation of the Public Art Program to be overseen by a 13-member volunteer commission made up of appointments from arts organizations and arts schools, as well as City Council and Mayor Tom Henry’s office. The Art Commission would review and select art that would be displayed in public spaces.
    “It’s important our community positions itself to take advantage of what the arts have to offer,” Henry said. “Employers look to the quality of place (when deciding where to locate or expand), and this will make a bold statement. It will increase th ...

    By Beth Braverman | Feb 25, 2016

    Do you have fantasies of becoming a landlord? That is, do you dream that one day, you'll purchase a promising piece of property, move in some reliable tenants, then kick back and collect rent well into retirement?
    If you've got the cash and ambition to follow through, there are plenty of condos, homes, and buildings you could buy and rent out—but pinpointing the right one is tough. Don't give up the dream! Insiders insist there are a few ways to separate the cash cows from the turkeys. Here are some signs a rental property is primed to gush big bucks.

    By Rob LydickPublished: February 21, 2018, 5:44 pm

    FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Local coffee shop Mocha Lounge opened on Covington Road in 2004, and since then, owner Brian Till says they’ve seen steady growth. The coffee shop now serves over 300 customers daily and has expanded to include a coffee truck. Now Till is hoping to bring coffee made from locally-sourced beans, fresh baked goods, and the customer service Mocha Lounge has come to be known for, to the opposite side of Fort Wayne.
    After listening to customers and getting feedback from polls on social media, Mocha Lounge will be opening a second location on Dupont Road. They’ve leased a space in a building under construction between Diebold and Tonkel Roads. That building will also house a second location for another local business, InTouch Salonspa.
    The new Mocha Lounge location will offer some new menu items, a drive-thru with two windows (for faster service), and an outdoor seating ar ...

    Don't despair! You can go gray without turning your hair the same shade in the process. You just have to follow some simple design rules.

    Find the undertone

    Photo by Marcia Moore DesignBefore jumping into the world of gray, it's important to figure out which shade will complement the furniture and textiles you already have. To do this, you need to determine whether the undertone in your room is on the warm or cool side.
    "If there are warm tones in the home, such as brown or taupe upholstery and flooring, or the ...
