Tell us a little about what the business has been able to achieve over the past 12 months.At the end of 2011 I had five employees and we were mostly working on a few new home builds and remodels but mostly helping people furnish their existing homes. The real estate market wasn’t making a come-back and families were making the decisions to stay in their home and finish spaces that would make their life more comfortable. As we’re coming into 2013 consumer confidence is back up and we are extremely busy with projects in Oregon and Washington.Our company now has 12 employees and we have many projects in a variety of stages of design/build and four of those homes are over 12,000 square feet and each have over nine bathrooms. I am also known in the design/build industry as a social marketing expert with over 40,000 twitter followers and recent articles in the New York Times and Wall Street Journal highlighting my use of the internet and social media to promote my business. One of the kitchen’s I designed was recently used on Lowe’s marketing materials for a $50,000 dream kitchen give away with Houzz.com.Kitchen featured in Lowe’s ad this year.3. What would you say has been the key to your success? We’re very fortunate to work with wonderful clients that appreciate the practicality and beauty that we bring to their home and many of those clients add to our success by giving us wonderful referrals to others. I’m told very often that my personality doesn’t always match the serious and meticulous image that is created on my website or in the magazine articles…I think people are surprised to learn how amiable I am that I am looking out for their best interest on their project.4. Do you feel the true ingredient to success in business, is to have passion for a specific talent, or to have a keen business mind and common sense? It’s great for a person to have a passion about a business but sometimes that passion can be ill-placed if there is no business plan. My years at The Gap headquarters has had an influence on how I run my business. I am very aware of what my strengths and at the same time I am quick to make changes, if I try something and it doesn’t work, I move on and try a different strategy. I have been told that I am probably an “early adapter” otherwise I will change course quickly and hold steady when appropriate. I don’t have a college degree and all my employees hold degrees and have years and years of experience in their profession. It is so important to hire the right people with the skills that I don’t have and not to hire someone because they are a friend or you want to ‘help them out’. I am able to take my experience and opinion on home design and formulate a big picture idea then I hand that idea off to one of my associate or junior designers and they have the technical skill to implement and follow through with the plan.5. Obviously, Wellington and Portland, Oregon are worlds apart. Do you think your experiences in Wellington has made you successful in Oregon? Why? I feel fortunate that I grew up in Wellington with a family that believed in working hard and enjoying a simple life of family activities. I was involved in scouting at an early age and many school activities and then went on to work at Dillon’s when I was in high school. I think the personal interaction we had to have with our customers was a great training ground for engaging with clients in an honest but friendly manner. I also think the work ethic I learned as a young adult has made me not only a successful person but also a great employer.6. What advice to you have for people wishing to start business in interior design? It’s not for the weary…if you make a mistake it can be expensive. I think partnering with someone you trust and that likes your aesthetics is a great way to start. Many times contractors are asked by their clients to pick out flooring, tile, countertops and even paint for a project and they’re not comfortable doing this…if you could partner with a contractor and help with surface and material selections you have a great way of making the project look so much better and making the client happy that you’re sure to get referrals to help others. I also think working at a furniture store is a great way to gain experience in home design.I travel to Las Vegas, Hight Point, NC and NYC several times a year to shop for furnishings and get new ideas…a person wanting to start a design business might find a lot of opportunity at a furniture store.7. What advice do you have for the youth of Sumner County and what they must have to be successful in life?We have dozens of college and high school students that come to my firm each year wanting to learn more about our business and we also rotate through 8-10 post graduate interns a year for those looking for experience in our field and the people we see being successful have a few similar traits.Figure out what makes you happy or what types of things make you happy. I also say you have to be involved in your community, push yourself to volunteer with people that are outside of your small circle of friends/family. I think you also have to be honest with yourself and follow your dreams, if you have an artistic ability I think it’s really important to explore it even when others may not see the opportunity in the future.I hear many people say that the Millennial Generation group is too plugged in to technology but I think you just have to have some balance in your life and take the change and disengage with your ipod and get out and experience something totally different in your community.Garrison Hullinger is a 1983 graduate of Wellington High School.If you know of a Wellington High School graduate who is doing something spectacular somewhere other than Sumner County send us an email at sumnernewscow@gmail.com. 1. Tell us a little bit about your Interior Design business and how you got into that chosen field of work? After attending Oklahoma Christian University for a couple of years, I started working in retail in Oklahoma City with Dillard’s and then moved to Dallas and worked for Neiman Marcus and then had a long career with The Gap, Inc. I started managing stores in the Dallas area before relocating to many different locations opening high volume Old Navy stores in the mid 1990’s eventually ending up at Headquarters in San Francisco and developed technology and store systems for Old Navy.My story is slightly nontraditional in the way I came to developing my business. I was involved in a work-related accident in 1999 and suffered a traumatic brain injury. I was in therapy and rehab for just over four years learning to read, speak, write and walk again after the accident. I had 20+ hours of therapy a week the first year and a half of my recovery and slowly my short-term memory got better and the therapists developed a program for me to remodel a bathroom as part of my recovery.Growing up my father was an avid do it yourself guy, always working with my uncle to remodel our home and work on other family member’s homes and it was an easy transition to get me back to handling tools and improving my home in San Francisco.After buying and remodeling different homes in San Francisco, it became apparent to others that my new found talent was to remodel homes..doing it in a budget mindful manner but also in a way that was very pleasing to others. After selling the second home that was remodeled the realtor turned to me and said “Garrison you know you can do this with other people’s money, right?”It was a great idea but I still had a big move to make to really restart my life and that was moving to Portland, Ore. Portland had a slower pace and was much more affordable for buying properties and remodeling them. I spent over a year of remodeling a newly purchased 1909 Foursquare craftsman home and in the process my new realtor dropped by and couldn’t believe the transformation. He tipped off a location scout that I had recently remodeled the house and after the photographers checked out the home they started pitching it to different magazines and I think it has been published seven different times since 2006.After getting published a few times new opportunities opened up and I briefly worked part-time for a designer as an assistant and I help with the creative development of a large lighting manufacturer that was trying to create a new magazine styled catalog. I started taking on friend’s jobs and then in the fall of 2009 I was approached to design and select all the finishes for a 6,800 square foot Parade of Homes show home in the spring of 2009.center_img by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — It has been quite a year for Garrison Hullinger, the son of Ruth Hare and the late Farrell Hullinger of Wellington. The 1983 Wellington High School graduate is an owner of a Portland, Ore. interior design company. The company at 12 employees strong helps people furnish and design their homes. His work has been recently featured in Lowe’s marketing materials for a $50,000 dream kitchen give away.Garrison HullingerHullinger is also known as a social marketing expert in the design/build industry with over 40,000 twitter followers (follow him at #GHIDinc). He also just won the Jackson Design and Remodeling best blogger of the year for Interior Design (see his website here: http://garrisonhullinger.com/So how did Hullinger, who grew up in Wellington – not exactly the mecca of interior design – make such a name for himself on a national stage?Well it’s an interesting story. Here are a few questions we asked him about his ascension to success. last_img read more

Georgia vs. Auburn odds, prediction, betting trends for ‘SEC on CBS’ game of the week

first_imgStat that mattersAuburn is 7-1 against the spread as a home underdog under Gus Malzhan. That should at least make Georgia fans nervous. The Tigers are going to pull out all the stops here, so expect Malzahn to break tendencies on both sides of the ball to try to mix up Georgia.Auburn vs. Georgia predictionAuburn takes the early lead, perhaps on a trick play, and the defense gives Fromm problems in the first half. The Tigers, however, cannot capitalize on that early momentum and it’s a one-score game at home. Georgia stays patient in the running game, and D’Andre Swift — who had 25 carries for 86 yards against Florida — comes up with a few big runs in the third quarter. Georgia holds on in the fourth quarter to keep those Playoff hopes alive.Auburn vs. Georgia scoreGeorgia 30, Auburn 23 WEEK 12 PICKS: Straight up | Against the spreadAuburn, it’s worth mentioning, can still get to a New Year’s Day 6 bowl; this is its third matchup against a top-10 team this season. It’s the first one at home, however, and could set the tone for the Iron Bowl on Nov. 30.The Bulldogs and Tigers have a lot on the line here. With that in mind, here’s everything you need for Saturday’s matchup:Georgia vs. Auburn oddsSpread: Georgia -2.5Point total: 44Moneyline: Auburn-110, Georgia-110Georgia is a 2.5-point favorite, according to odds at Sportsbook Review, and 56 percent of the wagering has come in favor of the Bulldogs.MORE: Get the latest NCAAF odds and trends at Sportsbook ReviewAuburn vs. Georgia all-time seriesGeorgia leads the all-time series 59-56-8 and has won the last two meetings. Auburn won the last meeting at Jordan-Hare Stadium, 40-17, in 2017.Three trends to know— The Tigers are 14-7 against Georgia when both teams are ranked in the AP Top 25, but the Bulldogs have won two of the last three regular-season meetings in that situation.— The Tigers are 7-2 against the spread this season, including a 2-0 against-the-spread mark as an underdog. Those games were on the road.—Georgia is 9-4 against the spread as a road favorite under fourth-year coach Kirby Smart. The Bulldogs have been favored in every game this season and are 5-3 against the spread.WEEK 12 PROJECTIONS: Bowls | PlayoffThree things to watchThe running gameAuburn (219.3 ypg) and Georgia (215.9) are both excellent on the ground, and the team that wins the battle could run away with this game. On defense, however, the Bulldogs have been better at 74.6 yards per game (fourth in the FBS). That’s nasty, and if it travels that would put Auburn freshman quarterback Bo Nix behind the chains. There is more pressure on the Tigers to get a running game started.A better Bo NixIn the losses to LSU and Florida, Nix was 26 of 62 (41.2 percent) for an average of 146 yards per game with two touchdowns and four interceptions. If that happens again, then Georgia will cruise to victory. Nix’s numbers are better across the board at home, and he averages 5.0 yards per carry. Perhaps Auburn uses more designed quarterback runs early to loosen up the passing game.What did Fromm learn?The last trip to Jordan-Hare Stadium was a nightmare on all fronts for Jake Fromm, who was sacked four times and managed a 13 of 28 passing day for 184 yards and a touchdown. Georgia had 32 carries for 46 yards in a game dominated by the Tigers’ defensive front. Georgia has won the last two meetings since, but this was on the road. No. 5 Georgia (8-1) travels to No. 13 Auburn (7-2) in the marquee SEC game of the week at Jordan-Hare Stadium on Saturday. The game will be televised at 3:30 p.m. on CBS.The Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry has SEC and College Football Playoff implications for the second straight season. Georgia can clinch a spot in the SEC championship game with a victory, and Auburn can knock the Bulldogs out of Playoff contention once and for all with a win.last_img read more

Where will Ron Rivera coach in 2020? Giants, Browns top NFL landing spots after Panthers firing

first_imgRon Rivera is still a good NFL head coach. He just wasn’t the right coach any longer for the Panthers, who fired Rivera midway through his ninth season.With the stability he brought to Carolina, his reputation around the NFL and the spike of penultimate success — leading his team to Super Bowl 50 after the 2015 season — Rivera will be in play for other presumed openings that will be created on or before “Black Monday.” 4. Jacksonville JaguarsFile them under another southeast alternative for Rivera. The Jaguars have some good talent up front on their 4-3 but need reinforcements at linebacker and the secondary to reestablish the dominant defense they had just two seasons ago with Todd Wash. Gardner Minshew, D.J. Chark, Leonard Fournette and Dede Westbrook are good offensive foundation pieces, too. The Jaguars can go back to winning faster with Rivara then by sticking with Doug Marrone.5. Washington RedskinsYou can’t rule out the team that Rivera coached against in his final game for the Panthers. They also could use some defensive-minded discipline and steadfast nature after sticking with Jay Gruden for way too long with limited results. But then again, why should Rivera attach himself to Dwayne Haskins and Derrius Guice but with a reeling defense in an unfamiliar ownership and shaky front-office environment when the Giants are the much better job and fit for him?The odds are strongly with Rivera to land in New York, with Cleveland a relative close second, should those teams look for positive change as expected. There are plenty of teams better positioned to become big winners sooner than the rebuilding Panthers with whom Rivera would be more of an asset. Rivera’s sudden availability will get notice around the league for owners looking to make an upgrade.“I will coach again.” pic.twitter.com/YhFOJ9zWmV— Tadd Haislop (@TaddHaislop) December 4, 2019MORE: Panthers’ 11 best coaching candidates to replace Ron RiveraHere are the five landing spots that make the most sense, with two clear leaders because of direct connections to Rivera, should they move on from their current coaches.1. New York GiantsPat Shurmur is likely on his way out with the Giants on track to end the 2019 season on a 12-game losing streak. Rivera coached the Panthers to that Super Bowl four years ago, but then-Sporting News executive of the year and current Giants general manager Dave Gettleman was the architect.Daniel Jones has some promise as a young franchise quarterback and Rivera is used to having an elite all-purpose back like Saquon Barkley. He has meshed his coaching well with Mike Shula, his former Panthers offensive coordinator who’s currently in that same capacity for the Giants.Defensively, Rivera messed with the 3-4 in the Carolina for the first time as a play-caller with mixed results: A better edge pass rush but a much-worse run defense. The Giants have lost their way trying to incorporate that base alignment with James Bettcher. The Giants’ history has been about a strong front four, and that was the foundation of Rivera’s best Panthers teams. He could help re-establish that scheme to get him and the team back on track defensively.The Giants unfortunately lost rookie standout inside linebacker Ryan Connelly to a torn ACL, but he can easily be the new Luke Kuechly for Rivera’s new defense. While Jones can be molded as a top-flight QB and leader on the other side of the ball. In a copycat league, the Giants can turn the Panthers’ best winning blueprint into their own, much like the Bills and former Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott have done elsewhere in New York.2. Cleveland BrownsThe Browns’ defense needs some fixing, and reuniting Rivera with Steve Wilks to fix the front and the secondary would make a ton of sense. Rivera also would bring some much-needed discipline and accountability to every part of their team, something that Freddie Kitchens has been incapable of doing.With Baker Mayfield, Nick Chubb, Odell Beckham Jr., Kareem Hunt, Jarvis Landry, the Browns have an offense that’s ready to win big now, and Rivera can find the right man to maximize and streamline all those skill players in a better scheme, with an emphasis on bolstering the line. Rivera’s gritty mind-set as a former linebacker would be ideal to match wits with Mike Tomlin and John Harbaugh in the AFC North, too.3. Atlanta FalconsThis would be weird, wouldn’t it? That’s why it’s a distant third. Geographically speaking, this wouldn’t be too big of a move, and it would come with the revenge bonus of facing the Panthers twice a season. But for now, the Falcons may end up sticking with Dan Quinn.If they don’t, you can bet Rivera’s name will come up for Arthur Blank as a one-time successful and still highly respected division rival. The Falcons, with Matt Ryan, have an offense ready to win now and a 4-3 defense in need of some fixing, with the right personnel upgrades on the defensive edge and secondary.last_img read more

The victory sweep improved the Dukes to 9-5 and 7-1 in the Ark Valley Chisholm Trail League Div. IV. They are currently in a battle with Andale-Garden Plain for the league title.Freshman Cade Phelps in game two.The Indians are 5-1 and travels to Wichita Collegiate tonight. They will then play at Mulvane on May 7. Wellington hosts Clearwater on the same day.On Thursday, the Crusaders won the first game 11-2 and followed that up with a thrilling 3-1 victory in the nightcap.Wellington took advantage of four Circle errors while generating nine hits in game one. Austin Dunn also had himself a home run.Crusaders were in cruise control getting two runs in the first and two runs in the second. Eventually they held a 5-0 lead after four innings. The Thunderbirds would narrow the lead to two in the top of the fifth. But a four-run output in the bottom of the fifth secured victory for the Dukes. Trevor Nance was the winning pitcher striking out 10 Circle batters, while allowing just three hits and walking five.The second game did not come as easily for the Crusaders, who were in a defensive tussle.Wellington opened the game with a 2-0 lead with Connor Phelps and Wesley Gilmore scoring off Circle errors.Cameron Bartelson with the critical tag in the fifth.But scoring became a premium thereafter. In the fourth inning, Circle made its move and scored a run by Chase Ellison.Then in the fifth, Circle loaded the bases with one out. However, Wellington catcher Cameron Bartelson tagged the runner at third to prevent a score and Wellington left the top half of the inning still clutching to a 2-1 lead.The bottom half of the inning had an interesting sequence in which Wesley Gilmore had rounded to second but then got caught in a rundown between second and third with two outs. How he escaped that situation was an act of Houdini. In his race back to second base he escaped a near Circle tag. In fact the Thunderbirds were running back to the dugout when the umpire called him safe.Wesley Gilmore escapes a rundown.Nance would then bat him home to make it 3-1. Nobody scored in the final two innings.Freshman Cade Phelps was the winning pitcher in game two. He allowed six hits, but no walks, and strikeout eight in 6.1 innings pitched. Adam Condit came in relief in the final inning.Wellington, which was plagued with errors on Monday against Buhler, was errorless Thursday.

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments This week at the Regent Theater: Ghostbusters (see trailer below).Schedule: Friday, 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, 2 and 7 p.m.This Friday’s feature film: PG-13 (for supernatural action and some crude humor). Time: 1 hour 45 minutes.Movie Synopsis: Ghostbusters makes its long-awaited return, rebooted with a cast of hilarious new characters. Thirty years after the beloved original franchise took the world by storm, director Paul Feig brings his fresh take to the supernatural comedy, joined by some of the funniest actors working today–Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Chris Hemsworth. This summer, they’re here to save the world!Rotten Tomatoes rating (movie critics collective approval ratings): 73%. Audience review: 58% liked it. Critic’s consensus: Ghostbustersdoes an impressive job of standing on its own as a freewheeling, marvelously cast supernatural comedy — even if it can’t help but pale somewhat in comparison with the classic original.For more information on great movies being played visit the Wellington Regent website at https://www.facebook.com/wellington.regent?fref=tsComing soon: Ice Age – Collision Course.Alfred Hitchcock – “Rear Window.”Follow us on Facebook.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
