There's a lot of responsibility with becoming a homeowner. Two of the biggest are making your monthly mortgage payment and properly maintaining your property cutting the grass, raking the leaves, etc. A lot of people seem to be finding this out and they don't like it. One group is people who signed up for too-good-to-be-true mortgage terms that they are now finding, not surprisingly, turned out to be too good to be true. You've heard about them, now that the introductory period is over, principal has kicked in, variable rates have gone up, etc., making the monthly payment in some cases double what it was just two or three years ago. Probably a majority of those who bought into these schemes are now unable to make their payments and are finding themselves on the short end of foreclosure proceedings. The other group, the one you don't hear much about, are the mortgage companies who concocted these schemes and pushed and in some cases mislead nave and unsuspecting consumers into taking on these unsustainable mortgage commitments.

Jim Sitterly thinks he will have over 2,500 signatures to turn into the board of elections Monday to request an increase in the real estate conveyance fee be put before voters. Huron County commissioners voted to raise the tax to $3 per thousand last month. State law allows commissioners to charge up to $4 per thousand. When Sitterly learned of the increase, he started a campaign to get at least 1,900 registered voters to request the increase be put on the ballot next November. Several area realtors helped gather signatures. "I don't know exactly how many we have because there are still some petitions I haven't gathered yet," Sitterly said. But he is confident that he's gotten enough signatures to put the issue before voters.

Santas decked out in Ohio State and Michigan emblems and colors, a variety of other Santas, a new set of Christmas dishes and Webkinz are just some of them.

Eligible farmers who suffered quantity losses to their crops in recent years can enroll in the Crop Disaster Program 2005-2007 (CDP) at the FSA Service Center. FSA will announce and conduct sign-up for quality losses under CDP as soon as possible. It is anticipated that quality sign up for quality losses will begin sometime after the first of the year. Certain crop producers suffered major financial losses as the result of a natural disaster during the last couple of years. Subject to final rules for the program, CDP provides benefits to farmers who suffered losses to the 2005-2007 crops from natural disasters and related conditions so long as the actual crop lost was planted or prevented from being planted before Feb. 28. Producers who incurred qualifying losses due to a documented disaster event in 2005, 2006 or 2007 must choose only one year to receive benefits.

"I recently noticed a custom in our family which goes back a long time," said the historian, as members took seats at their coffee location of the day. "When we first got married my lovely missus took it upon herself to wash any new clothes before we wore them. "My notion at that time was that if they are new they are clean. Mom did the same thing as my wife. For me, just go ahead put them on, then wash them as needed following the first wearing. Then you are saving by getting the first washing and ironing done for free by the manufacturer. "I really had forgotten about her procedure until the other day when she asked me for my new birthday shirt so she could wash and iron it for the first wearing. After serious thought, I have finally realized my attitude toward the inaugural laundering needed to be adjusted in this day and age. Why? "Because it used to be when I wore a new shirt from the Arrow Company, for example, I knew it was made in New England or North Carolina. Mr. Arrow and James Cash Penney would vouch for it being clean.
