and before going into the house, I blew out the flame," she recalled. "Then there was a loud explosion and I'm covered with hot oil and on fire. I was hysterical. " She credits her son and neighbor with acting quickly to apply wet towels, call 911, and help get her get emergency treatment for second and third degree burns, first at AtlanticCare Regional Medical Center and then at Crozer Chester Medical Center. She was there for five days and continues to undergo treatment, including skin grafts as a result of the severe burns to her face, ear, neck, chest, and hands. The victim's husband, Andrew, is a retired firefighter and paramedic. He was not home at the time of the explosion. But he says he'll never forget what happened when he arrived. "It looked like so many of the incident scenes I encountered over the decades as a firefighter. But it was our house and there was a large debris field from the force of the blast. Shrapnel from the mosaic glass squares flew more than 20 feet over the house from the patio onto the front yard. It's a miracle my wife wasn't killed. The product was defective. if we wanted to buy an explosive we would have gone to the fireworks store, not Big Lots.

The explosion has forever changed Ms. Lacovara's life, physically and otherwise. "I think about it constantly more than two years later. How people visiting could have been killed, I'm traumatized about fire to a point where I can't bring myself to even blow out a birthday candle. SOURCE D’Amato Law Office. Source: www.prnewswire.com
Now in its fifth year, the Astoria Studio Tour promises a fuller experience of art and art-in-the-making than ever before. Thirty-five artists will show their work, and many their process, in 23 studios from Alderbrook to the distant reaches of Lewis and Clark Road. The tour includes some of the best-known Astoria artists, such as Noel Thomas, Darren Orange, Jill McVarish, Robert Paulmenn and Charles Schweigert, as well as others less familiar but well worth a visit. You’ll see watercolor, oils, acrylics, pastels, mixed-media, photography, monotype prints, lino-block prints, mosaic, paper collage, sculpture, fiber art, handmade paper lamps, book binding, and boxes. In other words, about anything that one can turn into art. On tours like this there is a natural tendency for visitors to gravitate to the better-known artists and to the closest studios, those nearest downtown. While this is understandable, it limits the aesthetic experience. You’ll miss some fine work if you limit your tour to the downtown area. A case in point is Hiih (pronounced “hi hi”) Lights, the studio where husband-and-wife team Kestrel Gates and Lâm Quảng create their beautiful lamps and lighting installations for homes and commercial locations. To find them you’ll have to follow Lewis and Clark road 6. 1 miles from Miles Crossing (making sure that you take the jog to the right across the river). There you’ll find an old Craftsman home, a sign that advertises eggs for sale, and a barn. The barn is the studio. The family moved here from Portland over two years ago because, Gates says, “We wanted to be in the country for the kids, and we love gardening and animals. “We love being out here,” Quảng agrees. “We can see the stars. ” He also points out that they can now make more and larger pieces than they could in their old 200-square-foot studio. It is the first year on the tour for Hiih Lights, as it is for Shigemi Tajiri who moved here from Tokyo about the same time that Gates and Quảng moved from Portland. As a teenager in South America, inspired by Alex Raymond (“Rip Kirby” and “Flash Gordon”), he practiced cartooning. “Then I went to Japan for university and work” — as an advertising representative for international magazines — “and I didn’t have time to draw or paint until after retirement. He and his wife, Katsuko, moved to a house at the top of the south slope, where the walls of his atelier are covered with pen and ink. Source: www.coastweekend.com
