Go inside this beloved Spanish eclectic home in Dallas’ Hollywood Heights

Mary Middleton said she and her husband Randy Spence fell in love with their Hollywood Heights home the second they walked through the front door in 1992. The Spanish Eclectic design, original details and vibrant interior drew them in, and they decided they would make it their mission to maintain its authenticity.

“We decided that we would try to restore it, rather than renovate it,” Middleton said.

The home on Clermont Avenue was designed by Clifford D. Hutsell, a noted architect whose other designs dot the landscape of the Lakewood area (his one-time personal home on Lakewood Boulevard is designated as a Dallas landmark).

Tax records say the house was built in 1946, but Middleton said further research revealed it was actually built in 1932.

The home is 2,187 square feet with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, all in their original configuration, Middleton said. The walls of the living

Ride the Crypto Boom with These 3 Stocks

Some 15% of the American public owns some form of cryptocurrency – and a large part of that group jumped on the bandwagon in the last two years. The digital currencies – Bitcoin is the most famous, but there are scores of others – offer users a distinct set of advantages, based on their blockchain technology. First, the crypto coins are secure – as a digital technology, blockchain is notoriously difficult to break. Second, the coins have the chief attribute of any store of value: scarcity. There is a mathematical limit to how many Bitcoin, for example, will ever exist – and that limit gives them their value. People want a secure online currency, are willing to pay for it, and the relatively scarce (compared to traditional fiat currencies) crypto coins offer both attributes. The result, in recent years, has been

FRESNO, California (KGPE) – A Fresno mobile home park where one person died and another was injured in a fire Thursday night was supposed to be shut down in January.

State documents show that the permit for the site, the Trails End Mobile Home Park in the area of Sierra and Blackstone avenues in north Fresno, was revoked due to unsanitary and substandard conditions. Neighbors add that the code violations were overlooked for years.

The California Department of Housing and Community Development confirmed that the park owner was given notice to shut down on Jan. 21 because of safety concerns and code violations. However, the site remains operational, and residents continue to live there in sub-standard conditions.
