Don't Forget the Rule: First Impressions are the Most Important

by The Domis Team

It's a buyer's market right now. If you want the buyer to consider your home, make sure your house is in pristine condition. And, don't forget the lawn. However, keeping a lawn in good condition can be difficult. The climate and animals add to the difficulty of lawn maintenance but there are ways to get around both issues. The California climate can make irrigation necessary. If you're conserving water and you don’t mind a dry, brown looking lawn that is one thing, but, if you're trying to sell your property you will need to water your lawn. Make no mistake, curb appeal is important.

Dogs are another culprit for lawn damage. The ammonia in a dog’s urine tends to burn grass. If dealt with immediately by saturating the urine spots with water, the ammonia is diluted and less likely to cause the spots. For spots that already exist there are a variety of products available to revive the grass and make it green. There are also grasses that are heartier and more resistant to burning from the ammonia in the urine.

Short of rolling out beautiful, fresh sod, there are several economical alternatives to greening  your lawn and making that all important great first impression. Check out this article for more tips on improving curb appeal.

The secret of a great community is the quality of the civic and charitable organizations that give of their time and money to improve the lives of others. The National Charity League (NCL) is just such an organization.  The mission of the NCL is to “foster mother-daughter relationships in a philanthropic organization committed to community service, leadership development and cultural experiences”.  The goal of the WLC is to nurture the daughters by emphasizing  leadership training, the arts, and education. And to give back to the community through philanthropy.

One of their 155 chapters is in Whittier. www.ncl-whittierchapter.org.   Each chapter determines the needs in their respective community and then decides where they will put their support.  The support is given by donating time, leadership skills and some fundraising.

Some areas of the community that benefit from the WLC involvement area:

  • Disadvantaged children
  • Convalescent hospitals
  • Thrift shops
  • Individuals with special needs
  • Senior citizens centers
  • Soup kitchens
  • Library Aide programs
  • Scholarship awards

The daughters, known as Ticktockers, and mothers, known as Patronesses, are required to commit a certain amount of time to philanthropic work in addition to other chapter work. The commitment to the philosophy of the NCL empowers women to grow and succeed in their communities and in life.

A Population Snapshot of La Habra

by The Domis Team

All the buzz around the 2010 Census, got me wondering just what does the population of La Habra look like.

Here are a few pertinent La Habra demographics pulled primarily from the 2000 Census:

  • As of 2008, the population number was estimated at 62,000.
  • 14% of the population is over 60 years old.
  • The median age is 31

The Racial and Ethnic Population breaks into:

  • 41.4% White
  • 49% Hispanic
  • 6% Asian & Pacific Islander
  • 1.4 % Black
  • 2.2% All Other

Voter Registration:

  • Democratic 10,034
  • Republican 11,383
  • Independent 616
  • Green106
  • Libertarian 143

Housing:

  • Occupied Housing Units 19,042
  • Owner Occupied Housing Unites 10,815
  • Renter Occupied 8,227
  • Household Size 3.19 persons per household

Income:

  • Median Household Income $47, 652
  • Per Capita Income $18,923
  • Below Poverty Level 12.9%

The above information is a snapshot of La Habra ten years ago. It is now time for the entire country to participate in the decennial census of 2010. It will be very interesting to see what changes have occurred. You may ask, why do we care what the population specifics are, and does it really matter if the population is more or less now than it was ten year ago.  Yes it is very important and critical to some communities.  The Census data will determine the number of members that each state will have in the House of Representatives. And how much of the more than $400 billion dollars of federal funding our community will receive to spend on infrastructure and services such as hospitals, senior centers, schools and emergency services. 

Ten years ago the senior population of La Habra was 14% of the population, what if that has drastically increased. Federal funds will help provide more hospitals, senior centers and services.

Don't forget to complete your 2010 Census form that will arrive sometime in March.
