Homeowners in these areas may also qualify for a temporary suspension or reduction of their mortgage payment for up to six months.“Our thoughts are with the families in the path of this powerful and catastrophic storm. We continue to monitor the situation in the affected areas,” said Carlos Perez, SVP and Chief Credit Officer at Fannie Mae. “The storm while weakened, continues in many areas and it is simply too early to provide any data or assessment about the scale or scope of damage resulting from Hurricane Harvey. Preliminary assessments of actual damage at this point may be inaccurate and potentially misleading. We will continue to work with our Single-Family servicers to communicate our policies and ensure borrowers have access to the information and resources they need to help manage their housing challenges.”Freddie Mac issued a similar moratorium—the GSE will suspend evictions and foreclosure sales within the disaster zone for 90 days, and will allow extended forbearance and repayment plans for up to 12 months. Borrowers will not need prior approval for the extension, and servicers have been authorized to verbally grant forbearances to borrowers inside the disaster zone.”We’re committed to ensuring that homeowners receive the mortgage assistance they need to overcome the devastating tragedy of Hurricane Harvey,” said Yvette Gilmore, Freddie Mac’s VP of Single-Family Servicer Performance Management. “Once they’re out of harm’s way, homeowners should contact their servicer. They may be eligible for forbearance on mortgage payments for up to one year if their mortgage is owned or guaranteed by Freddie Mac.”Rain continues to fall over the Houston metro as Harvey stretches toward Louisiana, and as Perez says, it is too early to tell the extent of the damage that the storm will have on the area. Melissa Mimms, a Realtor and Houston native, understands that fact. When DS News asked her how she thought it would affect the housing market, she said. “I was here during Ike. We lost power. We had flooding in areas that traditionally flooded. This event is very different from any event we’ve ever had in Houston, so it’s hard to compare it to anything that’s ever happened here.”Mimms remains optimistic, though. “The Houston market has been resilient through many different hurricanes and tropical storms, like Ike and the Memorial Day floods that we had last year. What’s going to happen, I think, is Houston is going to bounce back. I don’t expect it’s going to be very far from where we were before this event happened, but it’s hard to tell this early on.” The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago  Print This Post Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily August 29, 2017 1,817 Views last_img read more

Suspected ‘Golden State Killer’ attends first court appearance handcuffed in wheelchair

first_imgABC(SACRAMENTO, Calif.) — The suspected “Golden State Killer” appeared in a Sacramento County, California, court for the first time since he was arrested.Former police officer Joseph James DeAngelo, 72, donned an orange jumpsuit and handcuffs as he was wheeled into the courtroom for his arraignment. He appeared to be weak and frail and was surrounded by five police officers.He did not enter a plea.DeAngelo spoke twice during the hearing — when he was asked to state his name and whether he had an attorney.“I have a lawyer,” he replied in a raspy voice.Tissues were passed around among emotional audience members in the front row of the courtroom, who appeared to be members of the victims’ families.When one attendee was asked by reporters how she felt to see DeAngelo in court, she replied that he looked like “an old man.”“I feel like justice is starting,” she said.DeAngelo was taken into custody Tuesday at his home in Citrus Heights, a city in Sacramento County. He lived at the home with his family but was alone when he was arrested, authorities said.The suspected killer’s alleged crime spree began in Sacramento County in 1976 and continued down the Golden State coast until 1986.DeAngelo allegedly committed 12 murders as well as 50 rapes and multiple home burglaries in the 1970s and 1980s.His name came up for the first time in the investigation to catch the notorious killer last week, Sacramento District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert said. DeAngelo was then surveilled, and DNA from an item of his that police had collected was confirmed as a match.DeAngelo served in the Navy in the 1960s and was a police officer in the 1970s. He was fired from his post in the city of Auburn in 1979 for allegedly stealing a hammer and a can of dog repellent, according to the AP, which cited articles from the Auburn Journal at the time.He then spent 27 years working at a distribution center for Save Mart Supermarkets in Roseville, near Sacramento, and retired last year, according to a spokesperson for Save Mart.DeAngelo’s next court appearance is scheduled for May 14 at 8:30 a.m.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Low spend on training holds Britain back

first_img Employers in the engineering sector have attacked the Government for failing to spend enough on education as they warn that weak skills are becoming an “Achilles’ heel” for UK companies.The Engineering Employers’ Federation has complained that education takes up 4.6 per cent of GDP, lower than the 5 per cent under John Major’s government in 1994-95, in its submission to the Government’s current spending review.The federation agrees with the Government that the shift to new technology and services dramatically increases skill needs. But it hit back at claims that the private sector is mostly to blame. At last year’s CBI conference, DTI Secretary Stephen Byers told firms they were not spending enough on training.EEF’s head of employment affairs David Yeandle said, “Although manufacturing companies will need to invest time and money to improve skill levels, public expenditure can also make an important contribution. The Government’s record has been disappointing.”The federation highlighted the “strong link” between levels of education and business performance, citing research by the National Institute for Economic and Social Research. This showed that better skilled graduates in the US, and higher intermediate skills in Germany, meant companies in those two countries consistently outperform those in Britain.

Council approves five tickets

first_imgNotre Dame’s Judicial Council approved five tickets this week to run for the position of student body president and vice president for the 2011-12 school year. The candidates are: sophomore Ricky Bevington and junior Olivia Colangelo, junior Pat McCormick and sophomore Brett Rocheleau, freshmen Kevin Noonan and Matthew Thomas, juniors Catherine Soler and Emily LeStrange and junior James Ward and freshman Heather Eaton. Ricky Bevington and Olivia Colangelo Bevington said his ticket hopes to achieve three major goals: student government efficacy, University teamwork and student body unity. “We want to be sure that all of the governing organizations on campus work together to do what is best for the heart of this University, the undergraduate students,” Bevington said. “Whether this means being sure that the student body is informed of important administration decisions or taking steps to have a stronger student presence with the Board of Trustees, we are determined make sure that the student body can really make its mark on this campus and the world outside.” Bevington, who currently serves as the director of student government’s First Undergraduate Experience in Leadership (FUEL) program, said student government has been important to both him and his running mate Colangelo during their time at Notre Dame. “Olivia and I are hoping the entire student body can connect with us and our goals, seniors to freshmen, he said. “We want to provide them with experience from our years past and dedication through the entirety of our term.” Pat McCormick and Brett Rocheleau McCormick said his campaign ideas are tied together by the belief that students don’t need a voice because they already have a voice. According to McCormick, the current chair of the Student Senate’s Committee on Social Concerns, student voices can be a strong force for change, and Notre Dame students have often been at the forefront of that change. “We’ve seen students use their voices and they can be heard,” McCormick said. “We think it’s time student government join them and serve them in that effort.” The main focus for McCormick and his running mate Rocheleau, current sophomore class president, is the further development of Playing for Peace, the three-on-three basketball tournament held last semester in support of Sudan. Some of their ideas include a Playing for Peace advocacy concert and turning the Notre Dame vs. Villanova basketball game into a Playing for Peace game. “We think it could be a major platform for the University to not only come together for important and urgent issues, but also to hopefully do it in ways that are exciting for students,” McCormick said. Kevin Noonan and Matthew Thomas The Zahm freshmen said the major components of their platform are “really quite simple” and include “some wood, a few nails and a little old-fashioned American hard work.” “If I had to give one piece of information to the student body about our campaign as a whole it would be this — we represent your real interests,” Noonan said. “Which would mean more to you, hangover hours in the dining hall and a new food court, or a vague promise of taxi reform? If you said taxi reform, then I don’t really want your vote.” Catherine Soler and Emily LeStrange Soler, student body president, and LeStrange, off-campus concerns chair, are running a campaign based on their experience within student government. “It enables us to understand how student government works and what it can do,” Soler said. The ticket will focus the relationships of the University with the South Bend community and the police. Soler said the connections she and LeStrange have already established will be a huge asset. The duo has several other ideas, including expanding tutoring resources, student employment reform and a monthly midnight breakfast sponsored by student government. “We hope students recognize how valuable our experience can be in regards to efficiency and previous relationships,” Soler said. “Emily and I are both creative and interested in doing things better and doing more for the student body.” James Ward and Heather Eaton Ward, current junior class president, said he hopes to address the everyday issues that students complain about by becoming a strong leader who remains down-to-Earth. “Our main focus is to make student government run by students who can demonstrate leadership but at the same time remain one of their peer group,” Ward said. Some of the topics the ticket is looking to address include bringing back quarter dogs, adding more points to the Grab n’ Go system and putting a Redbox for movie rentals in LaFortune Student Center. Ward said the fact that Eaton, freshman class president, is younger than most other nominees is a huge asset to their campaign. “There wasn’t ever much policy consideration to the younger grades,” Ward said. “That’s what we hope to impact next year, to have a better representation across the student body.”last_img read more
