Furniture by Susan Dudley "When you invite someone to your home, that's the nicest compliment you can pay them. Your home should be a reflection of you, your lifestyle, your needs and your personality." That's how Elizabeth Jackson, interior designer, summarizes the importance of having a home designed and furnished to fit your needs. Mrs. Jackson, a former resident of Reno, Nevada, is the newest addition to Park City Furniture and Design. She is an independent contractor con-tractor working as an asso ciate with Barbara Wilson, owner and manager of the furniture company located in The Emporium on Highway 24a. Mrs. Jackson and her husband Charles better known as Chuck moved to the Park City area after 22 years in Reno. "Our children were grown, Reno had changed, and we were ready for something else," she explained. "We looked at Idaho and Montana before coming here. "This area is growing, and that means there are lots of business opportunities; plus, we ski and enjoy many Whadd'ya Know? In the manner of Andy Rooney, we've been thinking lately. For instance, you ever notice how often you see this shape '? For instance, that little diamond shape is used for "Road Damage" highway signs you know, the ones that appear about l20th of a second before your right front tire disappears disap-pears in a gully? Funny thing, but we were flipping through Deer Valley's brochure the other day, and noticed that on their map the same diamond is used to denote what else? their most difficult dif-ficult ski runs. It's kind of a religious revelation. You look down Park Avenue and say to yourself, "There must be a God who arranges these things. " Park Avenue should be able to borrow a good name from one of the local runs. Let's see ... ParkWest has "Slaughterhouse". The Resort has a run called "Widowmaker" and another called "Fortune Teller". (It takes a psychic to tell which section of the road will collapse next.) Deer Valley has "Perseverance", "Rattler", and "Know You Don't." But one run in particular is tailor-made for our current road problems. It's called "Ruins of Pompeii" ! Make up your own joke. 1 i . ., ,; . - - - A star fell on Utah. No, we're not talking about the many celebrities sprawling over the ski slopes during the successful suc-cessful and enjoyable benefit for the U.S. Ski Team. We're talking about the one television star whose reputation fell to ground zero because he insisted on acting like the proverbial Hollywood brat. We won't embarrass the gentleman by mentioning his name except to say that he is one of Summit County's own, and it would be appropriate if bis mouth was washed out with soap for his reported misbehavior. A local freelance writer filled us in on her frustrated attempts at-tempts to communicate with The Star. On the first day, she waited five hours at Shadow Ridge for his arrival. But, along with his eager fans, she discovered that (1) he was not showing up in the bus with the other celebrities, (2) he had demanded his own car, and (3) he had booked a room at a different dif-ferent hotel than the other celebs. Later that day, she approached The Star at a ski benefit affair af-fair and asked him for a few minutes. Let's do it at 10 a.m. tomorrow, said he. She contacted him at 10 the next day, and the message was, wait until 2 p.m. Couldn't she talk to him a little on the ski slopes? she asked. No, said the press agent, he's going to be busy. But when Our Heroine hit the slopes, she found the star casually schussing the ski runs. He put her off again until after his lunch. And then, the press agent popped up again, saying, how 'bout 3 this afternoon after-noon ...? (Believe it or not, most journalists would rather get a simple sim-ple "Sorry, not available for interviews" than be jerked around!) The Star is one of the real casualties of the celebrity event. He's riding high now, and no doubt expects to become one of the great actors of his generation. The odds are greater that he will join the ranks of such temporary TV stars as Burt Ward, Parker Stevenson, Jonathan Frid, Alan Sues, and Bobby Sherman. (Of course, you haven't heard of them! That's the point! ) The star will probably remember that after af-ter his career fades. Given the nature of TV fame, we're talking about a year from now. Another dubious character in town was a writer from the National Enquirer. Reports say he was attempting to foment a rumor that Andy Gibb and Victoria Principal were getting married last weekend. The intent, we understand, was to get a rise out of Gibb's alleged ex-beau, Marie Osmond. The false story never got very far. Everyone knows that if Andy Gibb were in Park City, the town's Australian contingent would immediately have the inside dope ! The members of the City Council recently considered a pay raise for themselves, and when Mayor Jack Green asked for public comment, there was a long stretch of silence. So now the Council is probably saying there was no public opposition to the raise. . But don't you believe it! There were protests galore at the last meeting, but the City Council just didn't know how to read the signals. You see, old-time Parkites have developed a subtle, highly developed system of physical communication. (It dates back to the old days of the laconic miners who talked via shrugs and hand gestures.) They rely on this system to indicate their feelings about public issues at city meetings. For instance, when an old Parkite coughs, that means, "I have serious reservations whether the city can afford this pay raise." If he looks at the floor and shuffles his feet, he's saying, "I am adamantly opposed to this fattening of the public purse!" The KPCW tape from the meeting also indicates somebody honked a car horn twice outside on Main Street. This is an old miner's signal (back in the old days they used whistles) and it means, "I am considering filing a class action suit andor ripping your buns off ! " If a Parkite doesn't show up for the meeting at all, he's saying, "The city isn't listening to the citizens. And this action ac-tion is probably a breach of state code somewhere. " .

Once settled into her residence in Midway, Mrs. Jackson set about finding a place to set up shop as an interior designer. "I considered opening my own office," she said, "but Barbara's store has everything every-thing from wall and floor coverings to furniture, sheets and towels. I could not offer such an in-stock variety, vari-ety, so it made more sense for me to work with her. We complement each other. I provide a service for her customers, and at the same time, her business serves my clients' needs." Mrs. Jackson, who comes from a family of designers and architects, said, "There were no design schools in my day, so I got my knowledge from apprenticeships." The result, she says, is that she has developed the ability to sense a client's needs and design an interior to match. "My first step with clients is to find out what they are like. I need to know their hobbies, what they expect from their home or condominium condo-minium and how many are in the family. Then I try to suggest design and furniture possibilities that will enhance en-hance their particular lifestyle," life-style," she explained. "A home should be functional func-tional as well as attractive. It should welcome people when they enter, reflecting the residents' personalities," she said. Asked what type interior she prefers, she responded, "It doesn't matter. My job is to reflect the client and not myself. "Ideally, I like to become involved during the time when plans for the home or condominium are being drawn. "But any time is a good time, whether you're adding to a new room, completely redesigning the interior or doing the interior of a newly purchased home or condominium. "Regardless of the project, pro-ject, we all have budgets to consider," she cautioned. "I focus first on windows, walls and floors. Those are the basics which give an important impor-tant feeling of well-being. Then, as time and money permits you can add another things." What does it cost to hire the professional services of this interior designer? "Generally, "Gen-erally, I charge a retainer. But the amount varies depending de-pending on the project," she said. "I guess my speciality is making a house work. It is making it attractive, and, just as important, it is making it an enjoyable place to be," she concluded. Mrs. Jackson's hobbies include in-clude skeet and field shooting, shoot-ing, fishing and collecting antique decoys. She hopes her interior design experience ex-perience plus her interest in decoys and wildlife will bring something new to Park City interiors. AT THE PROSPECTOR SQUARE THEATRE Sunday & Monday, March 7th & 8th 7:00, 9:30 p.m. Tickets $3.00 at the door Psychic workshop slated at Kimball A psychic awareness workshop has been scheduled at the Kimball Art Center Saturday, March 13 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The workshop will be taught by Mary St. Clair, a Salt Lake transplant who has taught psychic awareness courses through Westminister Westminis-ter College. She was also the winner of the National Enquirer's En-quirer's Psychic Picture Contest. As the winner of the contest, she successfully identified and described a secret photograph selected by the tabloid. The workshop will deal with seven areas. St. Clair will discuss: (1) How what you think affects your life and others; (2) How to protect yourself, family and friends from negative energy; ener-gy; (3) Meditation as stress release; (4) Auras; (5) Mental telepathy; (6) Psy-chometry; Psy-chometry; and (7) Using your psychic abilities in your day-to-day life. St. Clair received national attention following the National Na-tional Enquirer contest. The editors of the publication had sealed a photo of Arlington's Tomb of the Unknown in a bank vault. Readers were then asked to describe the photo. St. Clair said she received the image through meditation. Students should bring a sack lunch. Cost for the course is $35 for Kimball Art Center members and $40 for nonmembers.
