Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Student Loan Repayment Program Could Assist with Vet Shortage By Eric Pfeiffer – Feb 9, 2018 SHARE Previous articleUSDA February WASDE ReportNext articleLittle Action on Farm Bill and Key Confirmations this Week Eric Pfeiffer Student Loan Repayment Program Could Assist with Vet Shortage Facebook Twitter SHARE Student Loan Repayment Program Could Assist with Vet ShortageLast week, the USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture announced that 187 regions in the United States currently suffer from shortages of livestock and public health veterinarians, including some in Indiana. The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) believes that student debt is partly to blame for the shortage. Student debt is making it difficult for young veterinarians to work in rural areas where salaries are typically lower. There is a program that helps alleviate that burden, and the AVMA is urging Congress to expand it. It’s called the Veterinary Medicine Loan Repayment Program, however, it does not currently receive enough funding to meet the demand.Dr. Jim Weisman, Assistant Dean for Student Affairs and Clinical Associate Professor at the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine, says he talks with students who qualify for the program and encourages them to apply. “The average national education debt for veterinary students is approximately $180,000. I think it’s an essential program by the federal government to help take veterinary medicine to the areas where it’s needed.”Weisman believes that the shortage may also stem from a student’s upbringing, saying that those who come from strong animal agriculture backgrounds will often want to return to that type of practice. “We see less people coming from rural or farm backgrounds to school, and that starts to decrease the number of people that are looking to do that.”But Weisman also says he could see a shift in that trend as student affordability remains a major initiative at Purdue University. “I think with student affordability, education affordability, that plays into obtaining post undergrad degrees. So, the professional degree, like the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree, (is) usually an 8 year commitment of education. So, student affordability, or educational affordability, certainly opens up doors to folks that perhaps in the past may have taken a different route.”Weisman also says that there is not a shortage of those enrolling in the school as they had over 1200 applicants for 84 spots in the class of 2022. But the question remains, which area of veterinary practice will those 84, and others who come after, choose.

Facebook Email WhatsApp NewsLocal NewsSupport gathers for Garda sub-office in WestburyBy admin – July 28, 2010 621 Twitter Previous articleAll haircuts are not created equalNext articleHSE tell court no place for teenager admin Linkedin A GARDA superintendent has come out in favour of setting up a Garda sub office in Westbury.Superintendent Frank O’Brien of Henry Street Station, said he would not be against locating an office for a specific period of time in the Corbally housing estate. The superintendent, who was speaking at a Joint Policing Committee meeting in Clonlara Community Centre, has jurisdiction for policy matters in South-’East Clare.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Noting that as a rural station, Ardnacrusha Garda Station has limited opening hours, he said that during any eight hour shift the gardai has just one quarter of its overall complement on duty, which also has to cope with deploying resources for court work for a number of days.“We have to prioritise our resources and sometimes a garda patrol car does not come to an area in an hour or two because frequently gardai are attending a more serious incident, such as a robbery, serious assault or even murder. Incidents are prioritised in terms of how serious they are”.Responding to Cllr Pascal Fitzgerald’s complaints about late night drinking by young people along the river banks close to Shannon Banks and his request that a garda sub office be located in the area, Supt O’Brien said:“People drinking in a public place is a serious concern and I would be willing to arrange a meeting with councillors to see how we can progress these issues”.The late night drinking in their area is a source of genuine concern to the residents, Cllr Fitzgerald said.“They are being woken up by youths who aren’t supposed to be drinking in public places. Some of the residents telephoned Ardnacrusha garda and there was no one in the station, and while we know that the garda in Ardnacrusha are doing their best, the fact is that they don’t have the required manpower.“It took two hours before a patrol car came out to the scene. I have called for a community garda to be stationed in a sub-office in the Westbury area because it’s not good enough that when Ardnacrusha gardaí are called to an incident in Limerick city, we are left without cover.“I have got phone calls from residents at 11pm looking for me to do something but I’m a councillor not a garda. I have though, tabled a motion in Clare County Council calling for the banning of drinking in public places,” he added.Senior executive officer, Michael McNamara, pointed out that the bylaws banned drinking in towns but didn’t cover locations in South-East Clare.Two years ago, the issue of having a garda sub office opened locally led Tony Hayes, who runs Westbury Stores, to lodge a planning application seeking permission to demolish an existing garage and barber shop in order to construct three commercial units, one of which would be a sub-office for a community garda.Mr Hayes had hoped the permanent presence of a community based garda within easy access of residents living in Westbury, Shannon Banks and Carrig Meade would be hugely beneficial for the local community.However, he had to withdraw the application after Clare County Council stated his plans represented “significant overdevelopment” of the site.Following Supt O’Brien’s recent comments, however, Cllr Fitzgerald is hopeful for a positive outcome in relation to a garda sub office being opened in Westbury in the not too distant future.

FHFA Seeks Input on Short-Term Rentals 24 days ago 3,139 Views The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Subscribe Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / FHFA Seeks Input on Short-Term Rentals The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) Thursday issued a request for input related to government-sponsored enterprises Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s eligibility requirements for mortgages in condominiums, cooperatives, and planned-unit development projects that have short-term rentals, operate with services and amenities similar in function to hotels and motels or may be considered vacation or transient housing.FHFA in a press release said feedback will help it determine whether changes or clarifications to GSE policies are necessary to ensure more accurate and consistent project eligibility assessments.Last year, each enterprise separately updated short-term and vacation property policies, reportedly making getting a mortgage for a vacation-type dwelling more difficult. But FHFA says it has received input indicating confusion about how sellers should best determine whether projects complywith existing requirements.While Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s policies for short-term projects are similar, there are some differences between how each determines project eligibility. FHFA says it is trying to understand how these issues may impact eligible loan deliveries that comply with the GSE’s charters and how the differences in policies might be contributing to industry confusion or processing inefficiencies.“Today’s RFI will help FHFA take the appropriate steps to ensure that all sellers understand and apply the enterprises’ eligibility requirements in a way that minimizes repurchase risk and the risk to the enterprises,” FHFA Director Mark Calabria said.The RFI contains the following questions for stakeholders:What revisions, if any, would you recommend to Enterprise requirements to better enable sellers to make accurate and consistent project eligibility determinations?Should the Enterprises define short-term rentals and transient use? If so, how should the definition(s) separate projects operating as commercial enterprises from projects in which units are predominantly owned by primary or second home homeowners/investors who use the property themselves but may also rent it on a short-term basis? To what extent, if at all, might such definitions result in a tightening of project eligibility? Are there differences in the risks associated with lending in a project that is primarily characterized by short-term and vacation rentals compared to a project that has a large number of units owned by investors or second homeowners that are used for residential purposes but may be rented on a seasonal short-term basis? Please describe in as much detail as appropriate.Is there any data or evidence you could share regarding the performance of mortgage loans in projects that have short-term/transient rentals compared to mortgage loans secured by primary residences, second homes, and investment properties with long-term leases?How should a project that is comprised solely or largely of second home units and investment properties be evaluated? What additional documentation should be reviewed to determine risk?How, if at all, would providing mortgage financing for units in projects with short-term/transient rentals, consistent with Enterprise charters and guidance, impact access to credit, including for low- and moderate-income and first-time homebuyers? Please provide any relevant data or analysis to support your position.How, if at all, should appraisal requirements be modified or bolstered to address some of the unique complexities presented by the transient use and income-generating activities in condos, co-ops, and PUDs?How, if at all, should appraisal requirements be enhanced to better enforce existing appraiser independence requirements for analysis, conclusions, and reporting (which may include comments that identify a project characteristic that could affect the seller’s or Enterprise’s determination of project eligibility)?How should sellers prevent and detect occupancy fraud on mortgages for project units that are used for vacation or short-term rentals (e.g., borrower claiming primary or second home occupancy when the intended use is for short-term rental)?How, if at all, are neighborhood property values impacted as short-term rental properties expand nearby?Do you have any additional feedback on the issues and questions raised by this RFI?Those who wish to offer input should do so no later than July 5, 2021, according to FHFA. Comments should be submitted electronically or via mail to the Federal Housing Finance Agency, Office of Housing and Regulatory Policy, 400 7th Street SW, 9th floor, Washington, D.C., 20219.Attention single-family rental investors, the Five Star Institute, with moderator Jeffrey Tesch, CEO of RCN Capital, presents the 2021 Single-Family Rental Summit (SFRS) Wednesday, May 12 at Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas.

Stay out of flood waters!Turn around – don’t drown!! pic.twitter.com/HvZqWjBbu7— North Charleston FD (@NCFDSC) September 4, 2019 Stay where you are. Dont aimlessly drive around just to take a look at the conditions. #HurricaneDorian #IOP #BeachPolice pic.twitter.com/IYEC6PfmKw— Chief Cornett (@ChiefCornett) September 5, 2019 ABC News(NEW YORK) — Hurricane Dorian is pummeling the coastline between Savannah, Ga., and Charleston, S.C., Thursday morning before the powerful storm moves “to unleash its fury” on North Carolina.The latestDowntown Charleston’s narrow, low-lying streets — already prone to flooding — are now underwater, and the northbound portion of the city’s expressway has been shut down since Wednesday due to flooding.A flash flood warning has been issued for Charleston, where more than 4 inches of rain have fallen since Wednesday.The historic waterfront city is expected to see 1 to 2 inches of rain per hour throughout Thursday. Make sure you are in a safe place to protect you from heavy rain & strong winds tonight as #Dorian moves through N. Chas. Emergency response is SUSPENDED when winds are sustained above 50 mph. pic.twitter.com/6CicdEcaCI— North Charleston (@NorthCharleston) September 5, 2019 Residents who didn’t heed earlier evacuation orders are now urged to shelter in place as the powerful winds — with gusts reaching 73 mph in Charleston Harbor — down trees and power lines.“Please do not leave your home unless your life is in danger there,” the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office tweeted Thursday morning. The forecastHurricane Dorian, which regained strength as a Category 3 late Wednesday, has prompted hurricane warnings for the entire South Carolina and North Carolina coastline as the storm churns north.More than 200,000 homes and businesses are without power across South Carolina Thursday morning and at least eight tornadoes have been reported in the Carolinas.In North Carolina, the Brunswick County Sheriff tweeted this video of the aftermath of one apparent tornado. No one was injured, the sheriff’s office said, but residents were told to stay inside.One storm-related death struck the Carolinas before Dorian did. An 85-year-old man fell off a ladder while preparing his Columbus County, North Carolina, home for the storm, Gov. Roy Cooper said.South Carolina is in the thick of Dorian before the hurricane’s powerful winds take aim on North Carolina on Friday.On Friday morning Dorian will likely make landfall along North Carolina’s barrier islands, the Outer Banks, as a Category 2 hurricane.“Hurricane Dorian is ready to unleash its fury on our state,” North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper warned Thursday morning. “Get to safety and stay there. Don’t let your guard down.”“This won’t be a brush by,” Cooper added. “Whether it comes ashore or not, the eye of the storm will be close enough to cause extensive damage.”The coastal Carolinas could see up to 15 inches of rainfall. The combination of relentless rain and a dangerous storm surge as high as 8 feet could cause life-threatening flash floods in some areas, depending on how close the eye of the storm comes to shore.Even those in inland North Carolina should pay close attention to flood watches and be ready to evacuate if asked to by local officials, the governor said, noting that flash floods can hit and cars can be washed off roadways in just a few inches of rain.Tragedy in the BahamasBefore approaching the United States, Dorian slammed into the Bahamas on Sunday afternoon as a Category 5 hurricane, the strongest Atlantic hurricane landfall on record. The storm hovered over the archipelago’s northern islands for nearly two days, leveling dozens of buildings, flooding roads and submerging an airport.The official death toll from the storm is now at 20 but that number is expected to rise in the coming days as authorities assess the destruction on the ground, according to Bahamian authorities.The Bahamas Prime Minister Hubert Minnis said Wednesday that Dorian has left “generational devastation” across the Abaco Islands and Grand Bahama, which are both in the archipelago’s northern region, east of southern Florida.Princess Margaret Hospital in Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas, is now the only hospital capable of treating the most seriously injured from across the 700-plus islands and cays, according to Dr. Caroline Burnett-Garraway, medical chief-of-staff at the hospital.Burnett-Garraway said the hospital has received at least 38 patients, including children, who were medically evacuated from hard-hit islands. Many were subjected to floodwaters and intense winds for days. Their injuries range from severe dehydration to lacerations and broken bones to acute kidney injuries. One patient had to have his upper arm amputated, she said.“A whole family was in a car and a roof blew off and fell into their car. A 7-year-old is badly hurt. The family was taking shelter from the storm,” Burnett-Garraway told ABC News, recalling some of the patients they have treated thus far.Storm conditions have made it difficult to evacuate patients. Three men died immediately after arriving at Princess Margaret Hospital, according to Burnett-Garraway.Prime Minister Minnis said, “our response will be day and night. Day after day, week after week, month after month, until the lives of our people return to some degree of normalcy.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
