first_imgA FATHER of five from Co Donegal had a home repossession case adjourned to the New Year – after telling a judge he was worried about Santa.The dad – who we are not naming – has been fighting to keep his Letterkenny home from the clutches of the Educational Building Society for the past two years.A High Court case against him was extended from December to the New Year after the borrower told the judge he had five children and was worried about Santa. The EBS are demanding the repayment of two loans taken out five years ago and the homeowner says he only took the case…on the advice of the building society.He argued (and some would agree) that the EBS advised him to take the commercial loans and that the company should be treated as a failed investor and take its own losses.The property involved was “not just a folio number on a piece of paper”, he told Ms Justice Elizabeth Dunne, and he wanted a hearing to look at the loans“This is my life we’re dealing with,” he said. Counsel for the EBS said the case had been ongoing for two years and urged the judge to finish the case.The judge adjourned the case to December 19, but the Letterkenny dad asked if she would hold off until the New Year. He said he had five children and was worried about Santa. The judge agreed to adjourn the case to the New Year.© 2011, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on Follow us on anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.com TO THE RESCUE…MAN GETS TO KEEP HOME UNTIL AFTER CHRISTMAS was last modified: November 15th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgLevi Samuel of Anchorage (Photo by Wesley Early, Alaska Public Media – Anchorage)This week we’re hearing from Levi Samuel in Anchorage. Samuel is a lifelong Anchorage resident who attends East Anchorage High School. He was part of this year’s Points of Light Youth Leadership Institute.SAMUEL: I was looking for something new, something fresh. I’ve done Leadership Junior Fellows program over at UAA. I’ve done Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA). I did that last week. And I just wanted something new. I wanted to expand my leadership tool belt.I’ve also been, not just a literal leader, but I was team captain of the Robotics team at one point, before I actually had to leave. I’ve led in that aspect. I’ve also just always strived to have other people lead. I’ve always pushed other people to their highest point of success that I can do.I also do acting. I’ve been on stage live and we’ve done shows. I’ve also done backstage in the crew, and the people that basically do everything behind the scenes. I’ve also done debate at one point and another. I’m also gonna start next year doing dance. I’ve been interested in auditioning for the Dance Contemporary team that we have here at East High School. That’s about it as far as extracurriculars go. I haven’t exactly touched on sports yet, but that’s still a possibility.I feel the need to do so many activities because I;m me, and I’m a very diverse person. Just knowing that I do so much more than the eight activities I just listed. I like to cook. I like to roller blade. I like to ice skate. I like to do so much different stuff. To be perfectly honest, if East High School opened up to more talented… more of the arts, because art in general is such a broad topic. I feel like if East High was to do more into the very specific or the different types of arts, I would be open to a lot more activities.In general, I think I have been a good leader, but I feel like I can always grow and do more.last_img read more
