We have a new manager, working with Mary, her name is Tracy, welcome her to her new and hard job. GOOD LUCK TRACY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was raised to say please & thank you, to have respect for my elders, lend a helping hand to those who were in need, hold the door for the person behind me, say excuse me when it was needed, and to love people for who they are, not for what you can get from them! I was taught to treat people the way I wanted to be treated! Good family values need.

Thank you all; for making this a better place to live.


A New Manufactured Home

April 26, 2011

Replace outdated mobile homes with matched savings accounts Take Action!

New bill expands IDAs to owners of pre-1976 mobile homes

A new bill would provide low-income owners of pre-1976 mobile homes with a grant to purchase a new ENERGY STAR manufactured home.
Nationwide, two million people live in mobile homes built prior to the national code established in 1976. While some of these homes may be in good shape, the majority are energy inefficient, found in economically depressed, rural areas and commonly are home to families that are near or below the poverty line.

Unfortunately, these households often fall through the cracks of federal government assistance programs. They are homeowners so receive no first-time homebuyer assistance. They have high energy bills but cannot benefit from efficiency improvements as the homes are so dilapidated they should be replaced.
Congressman John Lewis (D-GA) recently introduced a bill (H.R. 1623) to reauthorize and improve the Assets for Independence (AFI) program.

The bill expands the definition of qualified expenses for homeownership to include home repair and replacement of substandard homes, including replacement of pre‐1976 mobile homes.

If passed, families could receive as much as $10,000 in downpayment assistance to help close the gap between the cost of the new home and the homeowner’s income limitations. In 2007, the median income for households living in pre-code homes was $24,000, compared with $58,000 for the median income of households living in single-family detached structures. ENERGY STAR manufactured homes cost about $70,000. Families would have their personal savings matched at rates ranging from .50 to 4 to 1 by the program.

There are currently 24 cosponsors and we hope to add more.
If your legislator is a cosponsor of H.R. 1623, please call and thank her or him.
If not, please call and email your representative to request that he or she cosponsor H.R. 1623.
The Capitol Switchboard is 202.224.3121. They can connect you to the correct office.

Neighborhood Watch What it is??????

April 25, 2011

Neighborhood Watch is
Neighborhood Watch is simply a program of neighbors watching out for each other during the workday, evenings, vacations or any other absence. The purpose of the Neighborhood Watch program is to create an alert neighborhood by using simple crime prevention methods. The program works through the mutual aid of neighbors watching the property of other neighbors. This has several advantages, including the fact that your neighbors know who you are, what type of car you drive, and who belongs, as a rule, at your residence. A patrol officer driving by your home might not recognize someone as a stranger in your yard. However, an alert neighbor would recognize the person as a stranger. They could then call 9-1-1 to alert police of the suspicious activity. Neighborhood Watch does not promote vigilantism. Members of Neighborhood Watch groups are never asked to put themselves in harm’s way to prevent crime. They should only observe and report suspicious activities to the Police Department. This leaves the responsibility for confronting and apprehending criminals where it belongs—with your Liberty Twp. Police Officers.

If you see us walking or driving around, we are looking for your help. The last thing we want, is for people to think we are vigilanti’s we are NOT. We look to protect your property when you are away. As well as your neighbors. This is why it is so important we work together. We try to give our information to the manager, if we can. We think of what good we can do, and not to be feared. Come to our next meeting and give your views, and inputs we need everyone to help turn our community around. Thank you, jim

I guess the teens aren’t interested on in putting in there views, at the past meeting again there was a NO SHOW AGAIN. We will move on, and have our regular meeting at 4:00 pm. One topic will be taxes, information I got from Liberty Twp. meeting this past Monday from the County Treasure. It was very interesting, they have a new program, they are introducing. If you are behind on paying taxes beware. See you all at the meeting. We will still serve coffee and tea for $1.00 FREE REFILLS. THX’S Jim

Our meeting was great we started off about the Trumbull County Treasure, they will repo homes for back taxes. The program is called LAND BANK, they will go after homes that can’t pay there back taxes. The Trumbull County is 100% behind this. I will contact the bank lawyer, and have a talk about our community, more to follow on this. Letters will be written to the editor of NEW YORK TIMES to work on issue’s of our communityand others, for our life styles, what can be done to improve them.. We also talked about the neighborhood watch we have several teens looking for trouble, they will be finding it very soon. The police will be watching for many problems with the teens, along with the neighborhood watch. Paul Griffin showed pictures of the first pictures of school buses in Liberty Twp.

Creditors Meeting

April 2, 2011

The trustee hit them really hard! She wants them to provide info. on all of there business, and all there rentals and all income. They had 28 titles in her hands, she wanted to know about the total of about 138 titles. What kind of income properties they had, and that money should be going to the bank. Along with the price of these homes are worth. What about all these homes, they were renting out and they didn’t even own. They were offering homes to sale, homes without titles. Ron stated that they didn’t have time nor good help to handle, it’s hard to get good help.

She wanted to know of what business he is doing now, he said A1A carpet cleaning and he had to spend $800 for the machine, she wanted to know how or where he got that money. She noticed Marsha’s ring on her finger and told her to go down the street to so and so Jewelers, and have them appraised both rings his and hers. She asked about the motor home and the bank took that back the value of about $128,000.00. This have to be appraised also. She asked about a bucket T. Marsha said; it wasn’t worth anything. She then asked about the rental property’s that they were collecting rent on, she said; that belongs to the bank also.She wanted to know where they are now living, Marsha said in Norton. (Supposedly She never mentioned they had a condo in Florida or and a home,where they had been living, and put it in her sons name.) I said; nice sun tans, Ron said; he’s been working outside, no where around here have we had sun? Plus cleaning carpets isn’t outside work!

THE GOOD PART! She wanted to know about there taxes that they have done up the past years, and this year she wants to see since they took over the parks. Then she said; what about your corporate taxes? Have you done those yet.Ron said NO. Then when was the last year you had taxes for the business’s Ron said; about the year 2000. She never asked about HMR SUPERIOR, nor Knox gas. There business’s name the past several years.

I just handed over to her the back tax’s that was in the newspaper the Warren Tribune. She said; I would like to make a copy of this, I said; you can have it! With all the excitement I forgot to mention the $16,000.00 water bill in Trumbull county. Plus nothing was mentioned about management going around and asking for cash instead of checks or money orders. I guess she was never aware of this. They were telling people that, this was ok until Dec. 02 of that meeting date, but they were doing it since October through December. I guess that will come around someday.
This was a good experience to see what really happens in these issue’s. I just feel so bad of all the families, and so many people they had hurt.

Please watch:
