For to us a child is born…

COVID News Conference – assistance ended, OCPS quarantining, Strike Teams and moreNext articleThe Song of Snow Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Opinion | Faith & InspirationBy Mike GillandIf you can, take a moment and read these two verses from Isaiah, chapter 9:For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.Isaiah’s prophetic picture of the coming Messiah makes for what many consider to be the most familiar Old Testament prophecy in the Bible, but it is easy to read this and not freshly appreciate just how amazing this statement was.To put things into context, imagine this scenario: 175 years before the voyage of Christopher Columbus to the Americas (that occurred in 1492)… 175 years BEFORE that voyage, in the year 1317 AD… someone in Spain gave a prophecy that would completely and accurately outline the details, in full, of the American presidential election of 2016, and include pieces of what would be the political climate that surrounded the nation that day.Wouldn’t that be mind staggering? Yes! But that is exactly what Isaiah did.Depending on the pinpointing of the date for Isaiah, it was 700 years before the birth of Jesus… yet… Isaiah had a clear picture of His birth, and the very names by which He would be known, all of which reveal to us just a bit more of His character and virtue. In short, Isaiah hit the nail on the head. “For unto us, a child is born…a son is given…”This child and His miraculous birth in the most lowly of places, was all part of a God-inspired plan, one that would go forward from that manger and end up on a cross on Golgotha 33 years later. Both of those events are intrinsically connected.These events were foretold by Isaiah, and others. This event was important to them… and even more important to God the Father. After all… it was His son that was to be given.May this year’s Christmas season be the most enjoyed and memorable yet, as we freshly remember what a great gift was given to us all on that very first Christmas night.Mike Gilland is Operations Manager for The Shepherd Radio Network, a group of radio stations in Florida that features the “Christian Teach/Talk” format.

NCGA to EPA: Raise the RVO

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News NCGA to EPA: Raise the RVO Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleHouse Plans Action on GMO Labeling Hoosier Ag Today In comments submitted to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) today, the National Corn Growers Association called on the Agency to raise the amount of renewable fuel blended into the nation’s gas supply in 2017. In a letter to EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy, NCGA President Chip Bowling writes, “The RFS is doing exactly what it was intended to do. It is successfully driving the adoption of renewable fuel alternatives to petroleum, supporting jobs across the country, and ensuring the United States remains a global leader in developing new renewable energy sources while decreasing GHG emissions here at home.”In its Proposed Rule for the 2017 Standards for the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) Program, the EPA proposed cutting ethanol volumes below the level set by Congress. This is the fourth consecutive year EPA has proposed volumes below statute, a decision that has stalled investment in the renewable fuels industry.Bowling urged EPA to return to statute and raise the ethanol numbers, “We request that you reconsider the proposed reduction in the renewable volume obligations as a step toward re-establishing regulatory certainty for the renewable fuels industry, and stand up for our nation’s environmental health.”A copy of NCGA’s full comments can be found here.

If a borrower cannot pay for these things, or is incurring another major expense that will keep them from paying the mortgage, Freddie Mac recommends reaching out to the lender as soon as possible.”Your lender wants to help you with your mortgage,” Freddie Mac said on the site. “They do not want your home or the expenses that come with foreclosure.”Borrowers are warned to watch for the warning signs of foreclosure and to seek help if they look familiar. If a borrower is in need of help avoiding foreclosure, Freddie Mac lists several options to contact for help: the lender, housing counselors, Freddie Mac borrower help centers, and house finance agencies.Home retention solutions that can be worked out for eligible borrowers are forbearance, reinstatements, repayment plans, and modifications, including the government’s Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP). Non-foreclosure solutions in which the home is forfeited include short sales or deeds-in-lieu of foreclosure. The site provides several resources for the borrower to understand all of these options and how to prepare your financial information to meet with your lender.When foreclosure cannot be avoided, Freddie Mac gives the borrower a list of what to expect after foreclosure that includes how it affects the borrower’s credit, how to rebuild credit, finding a home after foreclosure, and re-entering the housing market (recent research from TransUnion indicated that about 1.5 million “boomerang buyers” negatively affected by the housing crisis will re-enter the housing market in the next three years).The site includes other options for homes lost to foreclosure. Freddie Mac encourages borrowers to find out who acquired the home after the foreclosure to increase options available; for example, if Freddie Mac acquired the home, options may include renting the home while it’s being marketed for sale, receiving “cash for keys,” or purchasing the home back.

Buncrana and Letterkenny Town Councils expected to pass budgets this evening

first_img Man arrested in Derry on suspicion of drugs and criminal property offences released Buncrana and Letterkenny Town Councils expected to pass budgets this evening Facebook News Pinterest By News Highland – December 22, 2011 Pinterest Google+ After Donegal County Council failed to pass its budget for 2012 in Lifford yesterday, the attention now turns to the town councils in Letterkenny and Buncrana.Both towns hold their budget meetings this evening, with indications that a deal will be reached and the budget passed in both cases.It’s anticipated that Letterkenny Town Council will retain its current rate, and instead of seeking to reduce the rate, members will propose using the equivalent of a 2% cut to fund a major promotional drive for the town in 2012.It’s an idea that’s already been discussed by members, and will see them put money aside for supporting festivals and other events which will bring business into Letterkenny and hopefully generate more revenue for small businesses.One example that’s been used is the fact that Aura Leisure Centre will host the Ulster Finals of the Community Games next year, and that could be a significant boost to the economy.There’s already been a number of behind the scenes meetings in Buncrana, where there’s a tradition of all nine members reaching consensus and then presenting a united front at the budget meeting.The town already has the lowest rate in the country, and indications are that the rate will not change, although we understand some members still believe there is scope for a 2% reduction.

Cold case solved nearly 50 years after woman’s murder, police say

first_imgTerre Haute Police Department(TERRE HAUTE, Ind.) — Investigators said they’ve solved a decades-old cold case murder of an Indiana college student thanks to new DNA testing and genealogy technology. Police have identified Jeffrey Lynn Hand as the possible killer of Pamela Milam, a 19-year-old Indiana State University commuter student who was found bound and gagged in her vehicle nearly 50 years ago, authorities said Monday.Milam vanished the night of Sept. 15, 1972, after leaving a university sorority event in Terre Haute, about 80 miles southwest of Indianapolis, police said.Her family found her body in the trunk of her car on campus the next day, and police said she died of strangulation. There were no witnesses or clear suspects at the time. Terre Haute Police Chief Shawn Keen said Hand died in a gunfight with police in 1978 during an attempted abduction.“He tried to abduct another female as she was getting into her car at a mall parking lot,” Keen said during a press conference Monday. “Fortunately, this time there was an off-duty sheriff’s deputy there. A pursuit ensues, he shoots the sheriff’s deputy twice, and a city officer there shoot and kills him.”Hand had a violent history that included murder, stalking and attempted abduction, according to Keen. He would have been in his early 20s at the time of Milam’s death.“Based on genetic genealogy, he’s in the only position in the family tree to be my suspect,” Keen said. “He has a history of not only of stalking and selecting his victims from Terre Haute, but also killing them.”Keen, who took over the cold case in 2008, said his team ran a “reverse paternity” test using DNA from Hand’s children and comparing it to DNA evidence from the murder scene.The evidence, Keen said, would have been enough for prosecutors to charge Hand had he been alive.

Columbia Property Trust’s rent collection stays steady in Q4

first_img Message* Tags Full Name* Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink columbia property trustCommercial Real Estateoffice market Share via Shortlink Email Address* Mills emphasized that the firm withstood the challenge thanks to the “stability of our portfolio and resiliency, our platform.”In fact, the REIT increased its 2020 normalized funds from operations by 2 percent compared to 2019, from $174.3 million to $177.9 million.As of December, Columbia’s portfolio is 95.6 percent leased and occupied, while the rent collection rate in the fourth quarter was 97.9 percent. Office tenants, which account for about 95 percent of the REIT’s tenant mix, the rate was even higher, at 98.8 percent.Despite the uncertainty facing the office market, Columbia is expanding its portfolio this year. Work is progressing at 799 Broadway, the company’s new building that’s expected to open in July. Executives said that because of its location in Greenwich Village, and amenities like a new ventilation system — particularly attractive to prospective tenants in the wake of the pandemic — they were confident that the 12-story, 182,000-square-foot project would attract tenants.Prospective tenants, mainly from the tech sector, have been touring the new property, they said.“We’re the only new construction option, and the most expensive option,” Mills said, noting that the building’s annual rent is in the range of $130 per square feet. “It’s a testament to the desirability of the neighborhood.”Contact Akiko Matsuda Columbia Property Trust CEO Nelson Mills and renderings of 799 Broadway. (Columbia, 799 Broadway)Columbia Property Trust reported a 5.9 percent decline in its normalized funds from operation during the fourth quarter, a reversal from the third quarter when the real estate investment trust managed to increase its year-over-year earnings.Revenue from the REIT’s operation during the fourth quarter was $62.9 million, down 8.6 percent from a year ago, and down by 23 percent from the third quarter. Part of the revenue drop was attributed to a write-off of delinquencies from nine tenants in retail and service sectors.“2020 was undeniably a transformative year that brought about many challenges, new perspectives, and greater awareness for our society and our industry,” said Columbia’s president and CEO Nelson Mills.Read moreColumbia Property Trust collects 98% of its rent in Q3Normandy, Columbia move ahead with $300M Greenwich Village office buildingFortuitous timing: Columbia Property Trust is done selling propertieslast_img read more
