Bravo Regarding the Sept. 28 Northern Express letter “Just The Facts” by Julie Racine, opinion column “E Pluribus Unum” by Thomas Kachadurian, and Spectator column “Fear Not” by Stephen Tuttle: Bravo. Bravo. Bravo....

Right On OMG. Julie Racine’s letter “Just the Facts” in the Sept. 28 issue said everything I was thinking. I totally agree. Amen sister...

Kachadurian’s Demeaning Sham Thomas Kachadurian’s opinion piece “E Pluribus Unum” is a very ill-informed perspective of American history. He attempts to portray our past as a homogenized national experience that has transcended any ethnic and regional differences with “the understanding” that our differences shouldn’t really matter...

Opinions Disguised As Facts Freedom of speech is a founding principle upon which our country prides itself, and because of this we all have a right to our opinion. It is when opinions are disguised as facts that we allow for ignorance to spread like wildfire...

Reject Your Own Stereotypes In his “E Pluribus Unum” column of 9/28, Mr. Kachadurian starts calmly enough with a simple definition and history of that famous motto from the Great “from many, one” seal of the U.S., but soon goes off the rhetorical rails. Alas, this heritage-sharing chat with neighbors soon turns into a dirty laundry list polemic, based on an us vs. them worldview...

Thanks For Just The Facts Thank you sooooo much to Julie in Marion for laying out the laundry list of right wing fabrications in her letter last week...

Color Your Closet!

Kristi Kurjan - April 9th, 2012  

Bring on this spring with bright colors.

As the weather warms, add a burst of personality to your closet with brilliant prints, vivid jeans, and bold color-blocked dresses.

Here are just a few ways to have fun with this season’s most wearable fashions.


This spring is saturated with color, so, stock up! A few new brightly toned items can vamp up a wardrobe. Think luscious reds, heart-stopping blues, and creamy mint.

Feeling even more adventurous? Go with a high voltage neon.

The hottest shade this season? Two words; Tangerine Tango. This color pops! According to the Pantone Color Institute, this year’s it-color for spring is Tangerine Tango.

Expect to see this glamorous hue in various silhouettes, from a flowing cocktail dress to a mini shoulder strapped handbag. It is flattering to most skin tones and the perfect color to transition from spring to summer.


Bring a burst of energy to a wardrobe with solid staples. It’s called Color-Blocking and is one of the season’s hottest trends. It is loud, bold, intense, and screams spring fashion. Color-blocking consists of mixing solid color combinations, wearing more than one color at once.

The feel is easily created through simple wardrobe staples. Make a statement with an electric pop of teal, purple, red, and yellow. Throw on a solid pink top with a pair of red pants or a mint blazer belted with a pleated orange skirt. The idea is simple yet refined.

To avoid looking like a rainbow, stick to a combination of three colors or less. Extend the possibilities by mixing and matching items to create different variations. Top it off by throwing on a pair of heels or chic pair of sunglasses.
