Lisa Lockwood used to think that house fires happened to other people. Lockwood's daughter, Erin, who was alone in the house when the fire happened, was unharmed. She ran into the street, and once at a safe distance, watched every possession the Lockwood family owned consumed by the flames. The spacious house, into which the family moved in 2000, would have to be rebuilt — this time, however, with changes. "It was so devastating for [Erin, and her brother, Neil] that I had to make the house look different," she said. "Even though we essentially built the same house with the same footings, we rearranged the upstairs bedrooms and changed the colors. Lockwood settled with the insurance company for rebuilding in September 2013 (the settlement for the home's content was finished the following September. "Lawrence Goodman of Goodman-Gable-Gould [Adjusters International] settled the loss for me," she said. Lockwood then hired Kim Cavanaugh of Cavanaugh Homes Inc. to rebuild her home, and by May 2014, the 3,100-square-foot house was ready. During the building, Cavanaugh and Lockwood created the second floor's three new bedrooms with connecting bathrooms.

Members – at least 26 of them – would hold up sheets of paper with individual letters spelling out, “Becca, will you go to prom with me. ”. He would hold the question mark. “She wouldn’t let me see it, but I know it’s seafoam,” said Goldsworthy, who didn’t even consider asking Jacobson …. Tyrus Goldsworthy had it planned for weeks.

More and more, high school students are coming up with clever, creative and often elaborate ways to ask their special someones to the spring formal. The “ask” – aka the prom-posal – has become almost as big of a production as prom itself. “It’s almost kind of a competition,” said Goldsworthy, an 18-year-old senior at Lewis and Clark High School in Spokane.
