Parker and Senator Jeff D. Klein presented the Housing and Family Services of Greater New York with a check for $120,000. The funding is designed to fight foreclosures in the 21st Senate District, according to a press release from the press secretary and counsel for the Independent Democratic Conference.The check presentation occurred in front of the home of Judith Alexander, who is a resident of the district and a homeowner in distress, who was only months away from foreclosure.“The impact of the subprime foreclosure crisis has been disastrous for many families undermining the stability and vibrancy of our communities,” said Senator Parker. “Brooklyn was one of the hardest hit areas during the subprime lending crisis, and although the practice has slowed due to state and federal regulations, some homeowners in my district are still finding it difficult to bounce back.The Housing and Family Services of Greater New York is committed to funneling the funding to help families facing the risk of foreclosure. The organization has already created several programs designed to help housing residences, including initiatives to renovate decrepit tenements and other benefits to help homeowners.“For 44 years, Housing and Family Services of Greater New York has been committed to saving neighborhoods and communities one building at a time – whether a homeowner facing foreclosure or a distressed 100-unit apartment building.” added Larry Jayson, Executive Director of Housing and Family Services of Greater New York.

#MeToo is about assault, not romance

first_imgRe Jan. 14 letter, “Country is headed back to Puritan age”: Wow. Jim Schaefer, you really don’t understand the concept of #MeToo. It has nothing to do with romance.Sexual assault and sexual harassment are acts of violence, not love. Acknowledging the rights of victims, (women and men and children alike), to say no and be respected has nothing to do with Victoria’s Secret, mini-skirts or breast implants. Society needs to address these rights; there have to be consequences for the perpetrators. As far as your reference to “the trickery of all the gold-diggers,” yes, there are some who will lie and cheat. But we can’t dismiss the undisputed fact of countless legitimate victims because of that. Don’t worry, #MeToo doesn’t signal the demise of romance. You can still enjoy fine wine and chocolate and a cozy evening by the fireplace with someone you love.Beverly SkollSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:Schenectady, Saratoga casinos say reopening has gone well; revenue down 30%EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsSchenectady High School senior class leaders look to salvage sense of normalcy Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinionlast_img read more

first_imgDES MOINES — Governor Kim Reynolds has approved legislation providing a nearly $90 million state funding boost to public K-12 schools in Iowa.“This new education funding helps us continue moving forward to get our young people ready for the challenges of the 21st century economy,” Reynolds said during a bill signing ceremony in the capitol, “and that’s why education is and will continue to be a top priority.”One bill increases the state’s per pupil spending on public schools by 2.06 percent. In the other bill, per pupil spending in 170 districts is boosted by $5 per student, to correct an inequity in the state’s school funding formula. There’s nearly $8 million in that bill as well to increase state spending on school transportation budgets to help rural districts struggling to pay for busing students to and from school.“I want to commend lawmakers for their quick action on school funding this session,” Reynolds said. “Having these bills to me in February willKids and supporters watch the bill signing.definitely help Iowa school districts better prepare for the next school year.”School boards are required by law to certify the budgets for the next academic year by mid-April. A state law requires the legislature to make the basic decision on school funding by mid-February, but there’s no penalty for missing the deadline. Lawmakers have often been tardy in taking final votes on school spending plans.last_img read more
