Raleigh committee OKs assistance for some(the BLACKS), and The NC Baptist Men willing to donate their services to tornado victims

Who didn't know something like this wouldn't happen, I know they where hit by a big ole mean racist tornado!  Thats out to get em....whats in it for us.  Is what I get out of it.  WTH.  Then you have this Godly group of men from NC Baptist willing to donate their services for free to help tornado victims.



Raleigh’s Budget and Economic Development Committee approved a measure Tuesday that would provide financial assistance to some city homeowners affected by last month’s tornadoes.
The proposal, which would be funded with $400,000 in uncommitted housing bonds, will be presented to the City Council at its next meeting on June 7.
Proposed by Councilman Eugene Weeks, who represents District C in southeast Raleigh, the program would provide up to $20,000 in deferred loans for low- and moderate-income homeowners who have exhausted other means of financial assistance to get their homes back to the city’s minimum living standards.
Other types of financial assistance would include homeowner’s insurance or grants from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.


To qualify, applicants would have to have a maximum income ranging from $43,550 for a one-member household to $82,050 for an eight-member household, be in good standing with their mortgage and property taxes and have a homeowner’s insurance policy at closing.
The loans would be repaid to the city if the house is sold or the homeowner moves.
Some committee members expressed concern, in light of a tight budget, and said the city would be setting a precedent for damage caused by future storms.
The tornado ripped through portions of Raleigh on April 16, causing an estimated $115 million in damage and destroying 138 homes and damaging nearly 700 others.

NC Baptist Men helping tornado victims for free


Almost three weeks after the tornadoes, a neighborhood off Brentwood Road in Raleigh is still a mess, but it's getting better.
Storm victim Daniel Wilkinson says his morning got off to a noisy start recently.
“I woke up this morning to chainsaws, and I looked at my phone. My mom had called and said, ‘Hey, the Baptist Men are going to be here,’” Wilkinson said.
With the smell of fresh-cut wood and chainsaw exhaust in the air, several volunteers from North Carolina Baptist Men Disaster Relief worked all day cutting up trees and carrying them away.
The crews have done this kind of storm clean up at more than 1,000 sites around the state, and they've done it for free.
“We don't charge anything. People travel from all the way across the state to come here and work in the name of Jesus, and that's why we do what we do,” said Lin Honeycutt, with N.C. Baptist Men.
The group wants to help more people. As volunteers go through neighborhoods, wherever they see storm damage, they're leaving flyers, saying, "Please call us.”
Volunteers from Samaritan's Purse were focusing on clean up in North Raleigh, but they had to leave this week to help in Alabama.

Hardcore Gangs Hit Ohio Suburbs GANGS IN THE ’BURBS
Subversive element creeping beyond Columbus’ borders
Last year, Westerville North High School suspended two students who flashed MS-13 hand signs and drew gang insignia during an English-asa-second-language class. MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, is a notoriously violent street gang with roots in Los Angeles. It was formed by immigrants from El Salvador.

Gang crime isn’t nearly as serious or common in the suburbs as in some Columbus neighborhoods, but suburban schools and police departments are increasingly on watch.
"It’s not so centralized in the inner city as it used to be," said Pat Brooks, a veteran Columbus police gang unit officer.

Suburban police call Brooks and his colleagues when they suspect gang activity in their jurisdictions.

Most of the crack dealers in Reynoldsburg are gang members who live in Columbus, said Tye Downard, a Reynoldsburg police narcotics detective.

They go there to make mor…
