The displays include all the garments a properly-dressed woman would have found necessary throughout a day and night in each of the featured decades. Nightgowns, day dresses, cocktail dresses, evening wear, outerwear, and accessories are on view along with varied objects and photographs illustrating the activities and lifestyle of the garments’ wearers.From the uncomfortable corsets and ornate bodices of the 1890s to the deconstructed freedom of the 1920s to the full skirts and bullet bras of the 1950s, fashion trends in Pasadena followed the rest of the country. These decades were shaped by society, economics, and lifestyle. Over forty exquisite garments, accented by accessories and other materials from the Museum’s extensive collections, illustrate the swing from rigid structure to freedom and back to restrictive customs.Pasadena Museum of History is located at the corner of Orange Grove Boulevard and Walnut Street (470 W. Walnut Street, Pasadena). Free parking is available in the Museum lot (enter driveway on Walnut Street) and on Walnut Street. The Neighborhood Night activities will take place in the History Center, immediately to the west of the parking lot.For further information, visit www.pasadenahistory.org or call (626) 577-1660.

Booming appraisals anger some OdessansSome have gone up more than 20 percentBooming appraisals anger some OdessansSome have gone up more than 20 percent
Twitter Local News Facebook Pinterest WhatsApp Pinterest Twitter In this May 2007 photo, Mike Foutz, assistant director of operations for the Ector County Appraisal District, measures the dimensions of a home. Foutz said determining the square footage is just one step in deciding the value of property. Many Odessa homeowners were surprised and then outraged recently when they received the annual appraised value of their home, which was much higher than many had expected. For residential homes, Ector County Chief Appraiser Anita Campbell said their values went up on average about 16 percent, higher than previous years’ appraisals, which ranged in increases of 10 percent to 14 percent. The increases were even worse for commercial buildings, some of which saw increases in value of more than 20 percent, and some multi-family residences like apartment buildings saw their value double. So why did the values increase so much this year? “The easy answer is because things are selling more,” Campbell said. “It’s definitely more complicated than that, but we spend a whole year analyzing sales for the previous year because our task is to appraise properties at market value.” So as long as people are buying and selling for a higher price, Campbell said, those appraisals are going to be higher as well. “We’re required by the state, we’re audited by the state to be at market value,” Campbell said. One Odessan, Troy Walker, said the evaluation on his home increased by $100,000 this year, and said all he had done in the last year was mow and water his lawn. Even for houses that hadn’t been altered, or upgraded or repaired in the past year, they still saw an increase in their value. A house bought today, Campbell said, could have nothing done to it in improvements, and if the market is increasing it will still sell for more than what the buyer paid. “That’s just the law of supply and demand,” Campbell said. “That’s what we’ve seen here the past four or five years.” Many people think the appraisal district is setting the value of homes, but Campbell said this isn’t exactly the case. If property owners are buying and selling properties for a greater value than listed on the district’s appraisal roll, those sales values are used a year later see where properties are in relation to market values. A tax estimate is also given at the bottom of the appraisal notice sent out to property owners, but Campbell said that is an estimate based on last year’s taxes, a guess, and that next year’s tax rate hearings will begin in September. “So if you’re unhappy with your taxes but you believe that we have market value, then you need to attend some rate hearings,” Campbell said. But many Odessans still aren’t happy with their notices. One Odessa homeowner, Vicki Taylor, said she saw a 10.59 percent increase in her appraisal value, and has seen no salary increase. She said she’s even thinking of taking on an additional part-time job to make ends meet. “It’s becoming impossible to live in my own home,” Taylor said. “I’m hoping not to be homeless, seriously.” Booming appraisals anger some OdessansSome have gone up more than 20 percent TAGS By Digital AIM Web Support – February 24, 2021 Facebook WhatsApp Previous articleWILLIAMS: Higher education in AmericaNext articleGrief support Digital AIM Web Support
