Photo: Anglican Video[Anglican Journal] Anglican Video is producing a documentary on the creation of the Spiritual Indigenous Ministry of Mishamikoweesh, the first indigenous diocese in the Anglican Church of Canada.Lisa Barry, Anglican Video senior producer, says the documentary—which will be available in 2015—explains the genesis and evolution of the new diocese, beginning with the dream of pioneering aboriginal priest the Rev. William Winter. “This diocese was William Winter’s dream,” says Barry. “It began to be articulated at the first Sacred Circle in 1989 and it has come to fruition in the installation of Bishop Lydia [Mamakwa].”  Mamakwa’s installation and the celebration of the new diocese took place in the first week of June at Kingfisher Lake in northern Ontario.Footage of the celebration and interviews with Mamakwa and other people in the community have already been posted on the church’s website, but the documentary is intended to provide the historical context documented by Anglican Video.“It’s been such a privilege…to film every Sacred Circle,” says Barry, explaining that the first Sacred Circle in 1989 was the first time Anglican aboriginal clergy from across the country gathered. Barry added that it has also been a privilege to witness the changes in what was voiced in those gatherings. “What you saw at the first Sacred Circle [was] a glimmer of hope and a lot of pain…And in 1994, it was just like a river or a sea of pain, with the people sharing about residential schools and the apology,” she said. “And then it became about rebuilding. And Lydia’s installation was a… glorious moment, to see the tremendous pride and hope and just grace that was visited upon that event.” Anglican Video filmed the new diocese’s first Sacred Circle, which will be its governing body, functioning like a synod, as well as the week’s celebrations, which included evening gospel music jamborees.Barry says she hopes the documentary will be useful when Mamakwa tells the story of Mishamikoweesh in communities and also for helping all Anglicans understand the purpose and meaning of this new indigenous diocese, especially the fact that it is not a movement to separate from the church but to create an indigenous diocese within the church. “That was what was stressed over and over again,” said Barry, explaining that the message was, “We are walking together…We are not leaving you. We are walking with you as equal partners.”Barry said the documentary marks both an end and a beginning. “It is the fruition of this dream, but now the work is ahead.”But Barry said the stories she has heard from people in the community indicate that Mamakwa is well equipped to lead them through new challenges. She recounted the story of one young woman who said that Mamakwa had cared for her at a time when she was despondent about the suicides of friends, inviting her to be involved and help in the church with other youth. She told Barry that many people have such stories of Mamakwa personally inviting them, watching over them, encouraging them and trying to help them to heal. “I heard so many stories like that. I think what a tremendous testament to Lydia as a leader—in her quiet way, saving her community and saving young people,” said Barry.The video, when finished, will be available online on the church’s website and from Anglican Video.– See more at: http://www.anglicanjournal.com/articles/the-making-of-mishamikoweesh#sthash.s69gB3pP.dpuf Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Canada: The making of Mishamikoweeshcenter_img Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Press Release Service Curate Diocese of Nebraska Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Submit a Press Release Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Supreme Court States “If Sought” is Seeking

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Supreme Court States “If Sought” is Seeking Illinois’ single refiling rule permits only one refiling of a claim. In other words, if a plaintiff voluntarily dismisses their action, they are only permitted to bring that same cause of action one more time. However, what constitutes a “same” cause of action, especially when multiple contracts are at play? This question was at the heart of an Illinois Supreme Court ruling in First Midwest Bank v. Cobo.  In Cobo, the lender brought a Foreclosure Complaint in 2011 (the 2011 Foreclosure,) alleging a 7/1/2011 default and an owed principal balance of $214,079.06. The complaint followed the Illinois statutory complaint model by requesting a personal deficiency “if sought,” and attaching a copy of the mortgage and note. This action was dismissed by the lender in 2013.Weeks after the dismissal, the lender filed a Breach of Promissory Note action (the 2013 Note Breach,) alleging a 7/1/2011 default and an owed principal balance of $214,079.06. Two years later, the plaintiff voluntarily dismissed this action as well. In July of 2015, the lender filed a Breach of Contract claim (the 2015 Contract Breach,) alleging a 7/1/2011 default and an owed principal balance of $214,079.06, which ultimately became the basis of the Supreme Court’s decision.The mortgagor argued that the same cause of action existed for all three filings, which consequently barred the lender’s 2015 Contract Breach under Illinois’s single re-filing rule as an impermissible third attempt. Specifically, the mortgagor pointed out that all three actions involved the same default and the same principal balance owed.In contrast, the lender argued that the 2011 Foreclosure and the 2013 Note Breach sought different remedies under different contracts and were, therefore, separate actions, arguing that the 2011 Foreclosure’s request for a personal deficiency “if sought” wasn’t enough to constitute an action upon the note since the lender never specifically requested this amount.As background, a standard mortgage loan is made up of both a mortgage and a note.  A defaulted mortgage permits a lender to sell the subject property to recover their losses (which may or may not make them whole, depending on the value of the property,) whereas a note permits a lender to obtain the full amount owed directly from a mortgagor. In foreclosure parlance, seeking an amount owed directly from a mortgagor (i.e., utilizing the note) is referred to as seeking a “personal deficiency” in order to obtain amounts that weren’t recovered via the foreclosure sale.  The Illinois Supreme Court found that the 2011 Foreclosure’s request for a personal deficiency “if sought” did, in fact, constitute a claim under the note, emphasizing that the Illinois model statute listed this remedy as an option, not as a requirement.  The Court further noted that the Illinois single refiling rule did not require prior suits to be adjudicated prior to qualification, as well as indicated that an action based upon a defaulted loan modification (with an ostensibly different default date and principal balance) would constitute a different claim. In light of this decision, savvy mortgagees may wish to forgo any references to personal deficiencies in their initial foreclosure complaints. Even when successfully obtained, personal deficiency judgments are rarely collected upon. Therefore, eliminating this potential remedy at the outset may help preserve additional later bites at the apple that may otherwise be lost. in Commentary, Daily Dose, Featured, Foreclosure, News Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago First Midwest Bank v.

Big Belle, Little Belle program promotes sisterhood, community

first_imgThere may not be any Greek life in South Bend, but the “Big Belle, Little Belle” initiative at Saint Mary’s promotes a sisterly bond, allowing upperclassmen to help first-years transition into life at the College.Co-chairs of the first year concerns committee, sophomore Caroline Koenig and junior Taylor Lashbrook, collaborated to assemble the program, according to Koenig. She said the juniors and seniors who serve as Big Belles bond with their assigned littles through events such as craft nights, highlighting the supportive environment of Saint Mary’s.“Trying to connect the first-years and the upperclassmen can be hard at times because there are things that separate them,” Koenig said. “To bring everyone together, to make more connections and to make more friends is a very positive thing for the community.”An overwhelming number of first-years signed up, so the program, which would initially have included only junior Big Belles, broadened to incorporate seniors as well, Koenig said.“You make all these friends so fast, and you get thrown into the crazy different environment that college is,” she said. “We felt that we needed people who are already grounded, people who already know who they are in college, to lend a helping hand.”Koenig said she and Lashbrook made an effort to pair girls with common interests, such as the same major, making it easy for first-years to receive pertinent advice. Based loosely on the sorority concept of having an older sister, who serves as a role-model, “Big Belle, Little Belle” aims to promote relationships between grade levels, Koenig said. She also said the success of this year’s launch helped identify ways to improve the program in following years.“We have a lot of ideas for how it’s going to flow next year and how we want to make it bigger and better,” Koenig said. “We’re still trying to work out a bit of the kinks since it is such a new program, and we had such a big turnout.”Junior Katie Slisz said she feels fortunate to mentor two Little Belles, as she enjoys interacting with and learning from younger students.“It’s nice to be able to get to know freshmen and expand your base of the connection with people you know in college,” Slisz said. “Instead of staying with my own group of friends or people I know from class, I’m able to meet people outside of that.”Slisz said she enjoys referring back to her own experiences so she can advise students and ease any difficulties they may have while adjusting to the college environment.“Personally, it was kind of scary coming in because I didn’t know anyone initially,” Slisz said. “It’s nice to have the ability to reach out to them. It really is such a great community-builder.”Slisz said so far Big Belles have made crafts — including door decorations and booklets with useful tips — for their mentees to promote a comfortable relationship with open communication. She said participating in the program has given her friends she would not have made otherwise, while granting her the chance to make their college experience the best it can possibly be.“A lot of our core values are about sharing in a bond and working to build people up,” Slisz said. “This really is a great way to form positive relationships where we can be helping one another.”Tags: Big Belle Little Belle, sga, student government in focuslast_img read more

Heisler: Everyone’s gearing up for big LeBron James derby, including LeBron

first_img How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed Happily for the Lakers, with two maximum slots already saved and tradable prospects, they have the most flexibility to bring in the most faves.

Subscribe here.Here’s how it looks.• Everything starts with what James wants. Opinions abound. With the Cavs reportedly intent on getting something and willing to take on salary, half the league can create enough room to sign LeBron as a free agent.• It’s not Cleveland. If he was staying, the press people wearing a path to his entourage’s door would have been issuing hourly bulletins on all the communication back and forth as LeBron and the Cavs planned their future before the draft.Instead, radio silence.• Whoever gets LeBron is turning over the franchise to him. Happily, he’s already hard at work on behalf of whoever it turns out to be!Related Articles What about LeBron?The Warriors won the title, the NBA had its draft … yada, yada, yada … but in the big story on Action News, just seven days until LeBron James is a free agent!Not that everyone’s necessarily waiting until midnight of July 1, even if the NBA keeps sending out memos on tampering, according to an Eastern Conference GM.“Meanwhile,” said the GM, “LeBron is doing what we does – calling players on other teams he wants to play with.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions center_img Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersThere have been no specific reports, but there’s no mystery about who’s involved. At this point, the surprise would be finding out some fave LeBron has kept secret.Kawhi Leonard.Chris Paul.Paul George.George might be third but looms as the likeliest sidekick for James with the fewest issues … younger (he just turned 28) and healthier than the 33-year-old CP3 … easy to bring in as a free agent with Kawhi under contract to the arch-rival Spurs. Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs If it’s the Lakers, a prospect or two would be ticketed to Cleveland … with Lonzo Ball in special peril because with LeBron accustomed to assuming his playmaker role.The possibility reached the sensitive ears of … you know who … Lavar Ball, who railed, “It’ll be the worst move they ever made.”Yeah, Lonzo for LeBron. Who would want that?Happily, Cleveland is warmer than Lithuania, where LaVar and sons spent the winter, although, like the Lakers, Vytautas Prienai wouldn’t let him take over their team, either.Unfortunately for those of us yearning for the end of LaVar’s Laker career, the Cavs, who must be aware they can get Lonzo, used their No. 8 pick for Alabama point guard Collin Sexton, whom they surely regard more highly after Lonzo’s struggles as a rookie.Lonzo probably stays, and, if James comes, gets to handle the ball when LeBron kicks it to him on the weak side … but he had better start knocking down those jumpers — in the exhibition season – or the Lakers will find a better shooter (assuming LeBron doesn’t already have one in mind.)• The Lakers’ wish list starts with LeBron and Kawhi.Duh.• The Spurs will resist trading Leonard to the Lakers, at the minimum.  After decades of covering this stuff, I’m used to saying this is likelier than that, but I have no idea where Kawhi will end up.However, the Spurs’ intentions, with the bad news having only begun to sink in, are easy to anticipate. Coach Gregg Popovich went hat in hand to San Diego last week for his long-awaited talk with Kawhi in the hope of wooing him back. Everyone said the talks were “good” –  until more reports that Kawhi had asked to be traded again.Two days later, all but confirming the worst, Spurs GM R.C. Buford noted, “None of us would wish we are where we are.”Not that this means that they will now let Kawhi decide their fate as well as his.If Popovich, the Spurs’ boss, likes the idea of rebuilding around Lonzo, Brandon Ingram and/or Julius Randle, a deal would not only be possible but quick.Otherwise – far likelier – the Lakers, who will be moving at warp speed to lock things down, will turn to the next name on their/LeBron’s list.• Houston, we have a … oh, you’ve heard that one.As likely a LeBron destination as the Rockers are, they have no young players to send the Cavs (no, Clint Capela’s not going anywhere.) Even if LeBron decides on Houston, the Cavs could fight him on making a trade, hoping that he turns to a team with more to offer.As with the Lakers and Spurs, if that just slows the process down, it’s less likely to happen.• Boston has a problem, too. GM Danny Ainge is interested, but with sign-and-trades no longer possible, he would have to gamble on re-signing Kawhi in a year.Ainge has the best prospects and the highest No. 1 picks to offer, but he has to factor in the risk of winding up with nothing.The Celtics have a longstanding dislike of players who don’t treasure being there, like Sidney Wicks, whose stay – in the 1970s – is still remembered with loathing.Without assurance from Kawhi – which he doesn’t seem to want to give anyone but the Lakers – it’s hard to see Ainge staying involved.• The Clippers could get in the hunt for Leonard.No one talks about them … but what if Popovich is willing to trade Kawhi to them, which wouldn’t be like pairing him with LeBron on the Lakers … and would take DeAndre Jordan with one year on his contract … and Kawhi decides it’s his best option after finding out he’s not Laker-bound?All we’ve heard, second-hand, since the sphynx-like Kawhi has inexperienced, inaccessible advisers — including an uncle – is that he wants to come home to Los Angeles.The Clippers were here last time I looked, technically, anyway.Welcome to the summer of 2018: Megastars.

Serena Williams one match from history as she powers through to Wimbledon final

first_imgAn 11th #Wimbledon singles final awaits for @serenawilliams… pic.twitter.com/xLuOIPR7z3— Wimbledon (@Wimbledon) July 11, 2019Strycova was making her own history, at 33 becoming the oldest first-time women’s singles semifinalist in an open era Grand Slam.But her pre-match mention of having nothing to fear invited the suspicion that she thought it was a different Serena Williams on the other side of the net; not the women who had beaten her in three previous Grand Slam matches without dropping a set.And rather than having nothing to lose, as Strycova ventured, this was unquestionably the greatest opportunity of her career.Privately, she would surely have acknowledged that, and perhaps feared her crafty game would be picked apart.Talking about combating Williams, and turning an all-to-gain mentality into points on the board, has always been different to the harsh reality.And after finding her feel for the contest, Williams broke in the fourth game, creaming a crosscourt forehand past Strycova at the net.Williams then held serve to love in a flash, helped by a pair of aces, broke again after setting up the chance with a fizzing backhand down the line, and took the opening set with a perfect drop volley followed by an ace out wide.Breaks in the fifth and seventh games of the second set confirmed the gulf between this unlikely semifinal pairing, with Williams sealing victory when Strycova could only poke a serve back over the net and watch it returned with interest into an empty [email protected] is back!

The wait for the 24th slam has included defeats in the Wimbledon and U.S. Open finals last year, and now Halep awaits her in another All England Club final.It has a similar feel to last year’s title match, when German left-hander Angelique Kerber was written off by many yet beat Williams with some comfort.Halep brushed aside Elina Svitolina 6-1, 6-3 earlier in the day, and Williams said: “She’s tough. She played unbelievable today. We’ve played on grass before and we’ve always had good matches. I look forward to it.” Serena Williams powered through to an 11th Wimbledon final and to the brink of history Thursday as she swept aside Barbora Strycova on Centre Court.The American, at the age of 37, handed a thumping 6-1, 6-2 lesson to Strycova, whose first singles semifinal at a Grand Slam proved distinctly one-sided. Victory for Williams sets up a shot at a record-tying 24th Grand Slam title, with Romanian Simona Halep the player standing in her way of matching Australian Margaret Court’s all-time tally in Saturday’s final.Williams, hunting an eighth Wimbledon crown, said: “It definitely feels good to be back in the final.” Related News Wimbledon 2019: Simona Halep eases past Elina Svitolina, into finallast_img read more

Construction on Mullen Road Project Starts December 9

first_imgFacebook95Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Thurston CountyConstruction on a mile-long stretch of Mullen Road, located between Timberline High School and Carpenter Road is set to begin Monday, December 9, 2019 – more than 3 weeks ahead of schedule.“We’re excited to be ahead of our planned January start date. This way, we will be able to get some preliminary work out of the way while students from area schools are on winter break,” said Thurston County Civil Engineer Brian Meier.Meier, along with representatives from Thurston County met with contractor Active Construction, Inc. last week to review initial construction schedules for the project.Mullen Road is used by nearly 12,000 vehicles each day. It is also traveled daily by bicyclists and pedestrians, and is a primary walking route for students attending Timberline High School, Lakes Elementary, and Woodland Elementary. During construction, large sections of the road will be reduced to a single lane, requiring alternating traffic and causing delays for drivers.“We know that construction is going to be an inconvenience for drivers. We want to make sure people are prepared for traffic delays, especially during commute hours,” said Thurston County Engineer Scott Lindblom.Lindblom added that work is slated to occur Monday through Friday each week during regular business hours. Some weekend work may also occur during construction. However, due to the proximity of homes in the area, night work is prohibited.Construction is expected to take two years to complete, and includes a widened road with dedicated bicycle lanes, sidewalks, lighting, and crosswalks, along with a new roundabout at Mullen Road and Carpenter Road, and a left turn lane on to Mullen Road at Glen Terra Dr.Environmental improvements are also part of the project and include the construction of a box culvert for a stream under Mullen Rd to improve flow to Pattison Lake. When complete, project will improve safety and traffic flow, reduce congestion, and accommodate for future growth.The Mullen Road Corridor Improvement Project is made possible through a partnership between Thurston County and the City of Lacey, along with additional funding from the Washington State Transportation Improvement Board and the Federal Surface Transportation Program.For daily updates during construction on the Mullen Road Project, follow Thurston County Public Works on Twitter @Thurston_PW or visit the Thurston County Travel Impacts webpage.More information about the project, including frequently asked questions and funding details, visit the project webpage.last_img read more

Crested Cranes defeat Kenya in CECAFA opener
