Betty Johnson Cray’s newly released “Finding Joy…after Foreclosure” is a touching story of a dog who found her forever home after being abandoned

MEADVILLE, Pa., Nov. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — “Finding Joy…after Foreclosure: The Unlikely Adoption of an Old Dalmatian”: a stirring narrative about Joy, a dog abandoned by her previous owners due to financial problems, who finally experiences love and care with her new family. “Finding Joy…after Foreclosure: The Unlikely Adoption of an Old Dalmatian” is the creation of published author Betty Johnson Cray, a dental professional, a hygienist licensed in Florida and Hawaii, and past editor of the Gulf Coast Dental Hygiene Association publication.

Cray shares, “Joy—an ironic name for a friendly senior dog that had partially lost her joy. She was the victim of the foreclosure market during the 2008 financial crisis recession when her family lost their home. So many pets were given up or disposed due to no fault of their own other than their owners being forced to make difficult decisions to survive.

Cedar Park family distressed after HOA fines turn into lawsuit, possible foreclosure

Some Central Texas homeowners are facing lawsuits and potential foreclosures brought on by their Home Owners Associations during the pandemic.

“Everybody has their challenges,” says Soc Lindholm. He and his wife, Misty Lindholm, moved to the Highlands at Gann Ranch in Cedar Park 16 years ago. They’ve had their ups and downs with the HOA largely due to their unkempt yard. In June the Lindholms received a $1,505 bill for several past-due fines and fees including landscaping violations and trash bins. The violations dated back to last year but were news to them.

“This is the one piece of mail we got,” Misty says showing the bill to the camera while speaking with CBS Austin over Zoom. “Up until then we had paid all of our dues. No emails. No phone calls. No nothing,” she says.

In the days that followed, Misty’s grandmother died and she left town to be

Cleveland Heights council plans to shore up loopholes, add more teeth to foreclosure bond ordinance

CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio — While the city’s foreclosure bond ordinance has already been used successfully to maintain vacant houses and fix them up when needed, there are some loopholes.

As it stands now, a little more than half of the lenders are actually paying the $15,000 bond that has been required since council passage in 2018, which helps protect the city and the neighborhood housing stock when repairs are required.

With that in mind, council has introduced amendments that could be up for approval at its Dec. 7 meeting, the last of the year before winter break, effectively “putting more teeth” into the current legislation, City Manager Susanna Niermann O’Neil noted.

Councilwoman Melody Joy Hart brought the proposals forward, having been involved with the original ordinance — introduced by current Vice Mayor Kahlil Seren — before her election to council through her earlier work with the Greater Cleveland

Nine indicted in LA-based foreclosure relief scam

Nine people have been indicted for allegedly swindling $6 million from distressed homeowners who believed that the defendants could save them from losing their homes, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced Thursday.

Eduardo Toro, Ana Cecilia Toro, Veronica Romero (aka Veronica Marquez), Veronica Toro, Filiverto Gomez, Leticia Mora, Maria Gil, Emmanuel Lopez, and Gladys Velasquez were charged October 30 for crimes of grand theft, identity theft, filing of a false or forged document in a public office, and conspiracy to commit grand theft.

The defendants, who have plead not guilty, were accused of orchestrating an “advance fee mortgage relief scam that claimed to prevent the foreclosure of properties throughout Southern California.”

The 136-count indictment alleges that, between August 2010 and May 2019, members of the scheme targeted distressed homeowners who were facing foreclosure, claiming that they could stop the foreclosure of homes if the homeowners made monthly payments to the

Colorado eyes foreclosure against troubled Pueblo water company | Colorado Springs News

An Arkansas Valley water and land company has left Colorado on the hook for nearly $1.4 million in delinquent loan payments and emergency dam repair bills, and may face a rare foreclosure proceeding by the Colorado Water Conservation Board.

At issue are two state deals, including a loan from the CWCB that has a remaining balance of $622,000 and an unpaid bill involving the Division of Water Resources and the CWCB’s emergency dam repair fund that has a remaining balance of nearly $750,000, according to the state.

Two Rivers Water & Farming Company, which has a history of chronic late payments, this year failed to make any payments on the $622,000 loan and has missed several payments on the emergency dam repair bill, according to the CWCB.

Greg Harrington, Two Rivers’ chief executive officer, did not respond to requests for comment.

In a letter to shareholders late last summer Harrington

 |  Wicked Local

Register of Deeds William P. O’Donnell recently reminded Norfolk County homeowners who are struggling to pay their mortgage or facing foreclosure that there are consumer programs available to help them out.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a great deal of upheaval in all our lives,” O’Donnell said. “Some more than others. Some of our neighbors have been furloughed or lost their jobs all together due to the economic impact resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. In the beginning of the pandemic, policy makers at the state and federal levels recognized the impact the pandemic was having on the ability of many to pay their mortgages and rents. A moratorium was put in effect which suspended foreclosure and eviction proceedings.” 

The moratorium expired on Oct. 17.

“While the pandemic has been ongoing, the Norfolk Registry of Deeds has been working in close cooperation with Attorney General Maura

Foreclosure jolts Milpitas mixed-use project

MILPITAS — A lender has seized ownership of a Milpitas townhouse development site through the foreclosure of a loan for the mixed-use project.

The property that suffered a foreclosure is the site where a project of townhomes and retail had been proposed at 808 S. Main St. in Milpitas, Santa Clara County documents show.

The mixed-use development was slated to include 27 townhomes and 1,800 square feet of ground-floor commercial space at a prominent Milpitas site.

Greenlake Real Estate Fund, which in 2019 provided $17.85 million in financing for the property, wound up owning the site as a result of the foreclosure proceeding, public records filed on Nov, 17 show.
