According to CB Richard Ellis' Second Quarter 2009 New Jersey Industrial MarketView report, average asking prices for industrial space in Northern/Central New Jersey has declined at the close of the second quarter, as landlords adjust pricing to be more in line with reduced demand. This decrease has in turn created significant opportunities for tenants across the state, particularly for entrepreneurial companies who are more willing to sign longer lease extensions to lock in current rates.

These sometimes-small acts give us hope that helps us face even the darkest days. All of us have friends and family members who have lost their jobs or livelihoods during the current economic downturn. Building community is one way of making sure that these loved ones do not lose their dignity and slip through the tears in our social fabric.

Arriving early for a meeting about Rotary Gift of Life (GoL), I used the time to shop. Knowing from their online ad located in the upper left portion near our masthead, that cantaloupes were on sale, I made sure to secure one. Steak was also on sale at $3.99 a pound, but I didn't bring my cooler and I did have that meeting.

Within every crisis is the opportunity for growth, and the current economic crisis offers a chance to build our local economies after decades of building credit-bubble economics. Many of us are realizing the fallacy of globalism, as our country has slipped from an exporter to an importer and most of our manufacturing jobs have fled our shores. We are so deeply in debt it will be a miracle if we ever get out!

Q: What should we do with the slanted wall at the end of our dining room? It has a big picture window on the bottom and a half-round window at the point where the ceiling angles meet. Can I treat them separately? Or do I even have to dress that upper window?
A: The answers are yes and no. Yes, you can treat dissimilar windows differently in the same room, provided they are as dramatically unalike as yours.
