NEW BOSTON—Habitat for Humanity (HFH) of the Tri-State will soon open the doors of its new ReStore location in New Boston, with a soft opening taking place on July 11 at 9 a.m.

The second ReStore location within HFH of the Tri-State’s service area, the home improvement outlet store is one of the many ways that HFH is working to strengthen its involvement in Scioto County.

According to a press release from HFH, the ReStore sells “new and used building materials and home improvement products at a discount, and the proceeds from sales assist in Habitat’s mission to provide qualified families and individuals in need with an opportunity for safe, decent and affordable housing.”

By selling new and used building materials and home improvement supplies, the ReStore offers Scioto County residents affordable materials for their own homes, while giving back to HFH’s mission toward affordable housing for qualifying candidates.

And according to Dayna Carter, HFH of the Tri-State’s Resource Development Manager, all of the profits made at the Scioto Country ReStore go back into further enriching the Scioto County area.

“We knew as soon as we [merged with] that area that a ReStore was something we wanted to do. We’ve had our ReStore in Huntington for many, many years. It’s been very successful and it’s a huge fundraising arm for us,” Carter explained.

“All of the items we sell in the store are donated, so any of the money we receive from the purchasing of those items helps us to put more money into our construction budget to build more affordable housing. We knew there was a definite need to have something similar in the Scioto County area,” she added.

Carter says that while affordable housing is central to HFH’s mission, she hopes that the New Boston ReStore will give the community more of a chance to learn about the organization.

“This is for people who are not looking for a handout, they’re looking for a hand up,” Carter said. “They buy their houses from us—we don’t give anything away. From the front end of things they work really hard and have to do several hundred hours of volunteer time. They have skin in the game on the back side of things because they’re paying back a zero interest mortgage to [HFH] to own their own home.”

“When people [support] the ReStore, they’re having an impact within their community, because all of the money we raise in Scioto County is going to stay in Scioto County to help build affordable housing,” she said.

The ReStore works to operate on environmentally sustainable principles, which Carter said adds to the myriad ways HFH and the New Boston ReStore will benefit the area at large.

“Those items find a new life in someone else’s home rather than being disposed of in a landfill,” Carter explained. “So it’s a very environmentally conscious endeavor as well. We are saving hundreds of tons of things from going into landfills every year because they’re recycled through the ReStore and sold and repurposed or reused. So it’s a win-win not just for [HFH] and affordable housing but for the community to have someplace to donate their unwanted or used materials that could still have more purpose.”

According to the HFH press release, the New Boston ReStore will be open to the public for shopping on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The store will be closed on Tuesdays and Thursdays so that the staff can conduct donation pick-ups. Donations can be dropped off at the ReStore Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Those looking to arrange free donation pickup to the ReStore are encouraged to call (740) 430-2930 for further assistance.

The soft opening for Habitat for Humanity of the Tri-State’s New Boston ReStore will take place at 9am on Monday, July 11th. The New Boston ReStore is located at 3520 Rhodes Avenue.

Celtics Stars Problematic Situation Compared to Past Issues in Boston

Getty Jaylen Brown of the Boston Celtics.

Jaylen Brown’s name being mentioned in trade rumors reported by Shams Charania and Adrian Wojnarowski, combined with his “Smh” tweet seemingly in response to those rumors, has made Boston Celtics fans a little uneasy. These recent rumors have fueled speculation that Brown will leave the team in two years much like Ray Allen did back in 2012.

The season before Allen left the Celtics to go join LeBron James and the Miami Heat, he had nearly been traded to the Memphis Grizzlies for OJ Mayo. The trade that almost was in 2012 made Allen feel unwanted, which was why he left Boston for Miami. Many fear that Brown will follow a similar path. According to Celtics Insider Jackie MacMullan, these situations are not comparable at all because the Celtics are not actively trying to trade Brown like they were with Allen.

“‘Oh my gosh, we don’t want Jaylen Brown, we want to trade him’ — that’s not what’s going on here,” MacMullan told NBC Sports Boston. “(The Celtics) did try to trade Ray Allen. They can deny it all they want.”

“In the end they didn’t, and then they were shocked when he was bruised enough to say, ‘I’m going to move on and go to the team that’s going to help beat you.’ Those are two different scenarios to me.”

To emphasize that the Celtics aren’t looking to trade Brown like they were with Allen, MacMullan made it clear that they were simply looking into what the Brooklyn Nets had in mind in a possible Kevin Durant trade.

“The Celtics aren’t actively trying to trade Jaylen Brown. One of the generational players, Kevin Durant, is available. You’d be a fool not to investigate it. (President of basketball operations) Brad Stevens isn’t doing his job if he doesn’t investigate it.”

In other words, the Celtics would only trade Brown if they could get someone like Durant for him.

MacMullan to the Worryers: ‘Stop It”

MacMullan also made it clear that trade rumors such as these wouldn’t bother someone like Jaylen Brown because trade rumors are not only part of the business, but being put in the same conversation as Durant is a compliment.

“This bit about, ‘Oh no! Maybe we’ve upset Jaylen Brown!’ Stop it. Absolutely stop it. He is an intelligent young man who should feel complimented that so many people are interested in him, and he also needs to understand that Jayson Tatum is the one and only untouchable. Jaylen Brown will be fine going forward if they never pull the trigger on this deal. That’s just the silliest bunch of stuff I’ve heard.”

MacMullan later stressed that the best route forward for both sides would be for Brown to get paid the maximum amount for his next contract.

“In a perfect scenario, the Celtics extend Jaylen Brown for the max they can extend him when the time comes. They move forward with a nucleus to me that looks like it had a very good shot.”

"Stop it. Absolutely stop it."

Despite the rumors, all indications are that Brown not only loves playing in Boston, but he’ll be ready to go when the 2022-23 season starts.

Brown ‘Loves it in Boston’

After the trade rumors came out involving Durant and Brown, Mark Murphy reporter that Brown loves playing for the Celtics and was looking forward to coming back to try again for a title.

“He loves it in Boston. He was two games away from a championship. He’s happy and looking forward to coming back. … Like Kawhi, AD and others on that level, he’s going to be included in every report because of who he is.”

Until any new reports from reliable reporters come out and say otherwise, it’s safe to presume that Brown is happy to play for the Celtics going forward.
