Advocates pressing for the preservation of Jackson’s historic Sun-N-Sand hotel just got a powerful ally.  

The hotel has been named one of the 11 most endangered historic places in the country by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

The designation is the latest attempt by advocates attempting to preserve the site and prevent the state from tearing it down to build a parking lot. 

The iconic property is now displayed prominently in the No. 1 spot on the trust’s website.

After a season in which the most popular home and garden tours have been cancelled or moved online, Columbus-area remodelers have decided it is finally time to welcome the public back to see, in person, some of their best work.

The Columbus chapter of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) will host the region’s first major home tour of the year on Saturday and next Sunday. 

The tour will feature remodeling projects at seven homes, and one remodeler’s showroom showcase.

“The decision to move forward with the tour has been really hard, but we are very excited,” said Pam Patter, executive director of NARI of Central Ohio.

Special pandemic precautions will be taken for the tour, Patter said.

The number of people allowed at one time in each home will be limited, and social distancing and face masks will be required, she

Huntington Ingalls to build manufacturing facility for undersea drones in Hampton, create 250 jobs

By iwano@_84

Huntington Ingalls Industries plans to build undersea drones at a facility in Hampton, anticipating greater demand for the unmanned submarines by the Navy.

Tuesday, officials from Hampton and Huntington Ingalls, along with Gov. Ralph Northam, broke ground on the Unmanned Systems Center of Excellence near the intersection of Commander Shepard Boulevard and North Campus Parkway.

Huntington Ingalls — known for building aircraft carriers, submarines and other ships — is venturing into relatively new territory by expanding work on unmanned systems. The company acquired unmanned systems developers in recent years and is producing small — light enough for a person to carry — to medium-sized drones, according to Andy Green, executive vice president at Huntington Ingalls. That’s already made the company a leading builder of undersea drones, but the Hampton facility will be a significant expansion.

Once the new facility is complete, Huntington Ingalls can build large drones about 30 feet

As part of the proposed Chandigarh Housing Board (CHB) general housing scheme to come up at the IT Park, the UT administration may construct the mandatory flats for the economically weaker sections (EWS) on another site.

The project is planned on 17 acres on two sites at the IT Park, and will comprise 784 flats, offering four, three and two bedrooms, besides facilities such as a swimming pool and gym.

Initially, CHB had planned to construct 1,100 flats, but their number was reduced on the directions of the urban planning department.

Building a Website Has Never Been Easier

Getting your message out these days requires good helpings of Facebook and Twitter, with maybe a dash of Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Tumblr. But that’s not enough: if you want an internet presence that truly represents you or your organization, you also need a website that sets you apart from the crowd. A real website, as opposed to a social media page, gives you complete control over design and content. This lends credibility to your business, organization, or personal brand. Facebook pages all look alike in terms of design, but on your own website, you can realize a brand image, offer products for sale, and integrate third-party web services.

It’s never been easier to set up a professional-looking, design-forward website. Well-known DIY site building services, such as Squarespace and Wix, are constantly improving and adding new capabilities. Newer competitors, such as Simvoly, Strikingly,
