Leaky basement calls for thorough inspectionBill and Kevin BurnettInman News Q: After a hard rain, we found water in our basement near where our chimney attaches to the house. We noticed that the caulking between the chimney and the house is dry and cracking. We also noticed that the basement's ceiling has water spots, which leads us to believe it has happened before. Is there a special caulk we can use after we remove the old material? And some of the mortar between the bricks is cracked. Our house is about 30 years old. A: A 30-year-old chimney needs a good inspection. You can do the inspection on the outside yourself. But we recommend that you get a chimney sweep for the inside. Over time, creosote, a byproduct of wood, builds up in the chimney liner. Creosote buildup is the main cau...

36 Hours in Kansas City, Mo. Steve Hebert for The New York Times A Misty Gamble sculpture at the Sherry Leedy gallery. The New York Times By Charly Wilder KANSAS CITY is known for its barbecue, bebop and easy-does-it Midwestern charm. But a decade-long effort to revitalize the city's downtown has transformed this former jazz mecca, which straddles the Kansas-Missouri border, back into a culturally rich metropolis. The city's standing will be further bolstered next year when the much-anticipated Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts opens, giving a sleek new home to the symphony, opera and ballet. True, Kansas City is no backwater, but don't expect high polish. In fact, it's the city's unvarnished grit that may be its best asset.Friday 4 p.m.1) CROSSROADS REDEFINED Industrial stagnatio...

You can't pay your bills, your worried about your family's health, and the bank is threatening foreclosure. A short sale is when a bank agrees to sell a house for less than is owed on the loan., including closing costs, realtor fees, etc.There is often misinformation when it comes to this topic. I often find that people facing foreclosure contact me after the bank has started legal preceedings against them. It is hard to face the fact that you might actually be foreclosed on, but many do not realize the long term ramifications foreclosure can have on your financial health. Please consult with a professional as soon as you know foreclosure is a possibility. A short sale will only stay with you 2 years and a foreclosure can stick with you for a a decade! Please understand that you will be...
