Payday Lenders Closing Doors After Election

first_imgSeveral local short-term loan businesses in the Flathead are shutting their doors after voters passed an initiative capping the interest rates they can charge their customers. Shelley Gould of Red D Cash in Evergreen said she will be closing after 10 years now that I-164 is in place, putting herself and another employee out of work.“This is really, really a travesty,” Gould said. “(It’s) knocking on the door of free enterprise – shut down free enterprise if we don’t like what they’re doing.”Introduced after multiple attempts at similar caps on rates failed to pass in the Legislature, proponents of I-164 argued that so-called payday lenders engaged in “predatory” loan behavior. Since the lenders were allowed to charge fees worth 25 percent of the loan, this equaled an annual percentage rate (APR) ranging from 300 to 600 percent on the borrowed funds, the proponents said, which could trap people in a cycle of debt.The initiative capped interest rates for payday lenders at 36 percent, a level that Gould says she cannot charge and stay in business.A Red D Cash customer used to be charged $17.65 for an unsecured, $100 loan, according to the business’ website. Now, lenders say they would earn $1.38 for the same loan under the new interest rate cap.Gould said payday lenders were already tightly regulated by the state, limited to loans of at least $50 and not to exceed $300. She also said payday lenders rarely charged the full 25 percent interest allowed by law.Bethany Osborn, manager at National Quik Cash, said her business would no longer be issuing loans.“Otherwise, our plans are pretty bleak,” Osborn said. At Title Cash, Sarah Lefeuvre said the Kalispell branch of the national chain would stay open for six months to collect interest payments, but some customers are already feeling the pressure.“A lot of people, their payments are jumping up and they’re getting angry,” Lefeauvre said. She said Title Cash has about 350 “good customers.” Lefeuvre has worked at Title Cash for two years, and is now faced with finding a new job in a tight market.“I’ve been looking for work, and there’s nothing out there right now,” Lefeuvre said. Though she does not take the vote personally, Lefeuvre said she is convinced voters did not fully understand what I-164 would mean for payday businesses.“I really don’t think people understood what they were voting for,” she said. “A lot of people don’t realize we help all sorts of people. And all they’ve done now is eliminate choices.”In preparation for I-164’s passage, the local Check n’ Go stopped providing loans on Oct. 20, according to manager Alyssa Blasdel, and the store will close its doors on Nov. 19. With several branches throughout Montana, Blasdel said there would be 15 to 20 people out of work. Though she is worried about her job prospects, Blasdel also said she is concerned about her customers.“It’s not like we force them through the door. They come here because they need us,” she said. Blasdel also said that voters did not understand the nature of the payday lending business; they are short-term lenders, so annual percentage rates are misleading. According to state law, the term of a deferred deposit loan cannot exceed 31 days. Annual percentage rates would only apply if a person came in every two weeks to re-loan, Gould said, which is rare.“If I see someone getting into a habit, I ask them to buy it down, take less each time,” Gould said. Gould said she wholeheartedly believes in the initiative process, but she would like to see initiatives written more clearly for voters.“I think they were massively confusing,” Gould said. Flathead Job Service is running a rapid response for local payday lender employees, according to manager Bill Nelson, which includes help with unemployment benefits and various classes to aid with the job hunt.

ASK A COP — Has COVID-19 caused a vehicle registration sticker shortage?

first_img Racheal from Port Arthur asks: I believe my cousin is very negligent when it comes to her vehicle maintenance. She is currently riding around with two donut tires on her car. I told her I didn’t think that was legal. Is it illegal to drive a car with more than one spare tire? Answer: A donut spare tire should not be driven more than 70 miles or faster than 50 mph. Any speed or distance past that, the tire is not guaranteed for safe driving on our roads. I did not find any or do not know of any law that regulates how many spare tires a motorist can have on any one vehicle. Your cousin needs to keep in mind, even though riding on two spare tires may not be illegal, it’s not the safest means of transportation. That donut spare tire is only temporary solution.Join Officer Rickey Antoine for Ask A Cop Live on KSAP 96.9 FM “The Breeze” every Tuesday from 1 to 2:30 p.m. as he discusses the Ask A Cop article.

Rickey Antoine, 645 4th Street, Port Arthur, Texas, 77640. If you happen to see me in public, you can Ask A Cop! Dale from Port Neches asks: Is there a law in Texas regarding following too close to a police vehicle when it’s operating with its lights on?Answer: Who and why would someone want to follow a police unit that’s operating in emergency mode with its light and siren on? Most people want to get out of the way, breathe a sigh of relief and are grateful that police unit wasn’t trying to stop them! Dale, there’s no law in the Texas Transportation Code that specifically addresses following to close to a police unit operating in emergency mode, but there’s a law that prohibits following too close to a fire apparatus or ambulance. Texas Transportation Code 545.407 states a driver may not follow a fire apparatus or ambulance closer than 500 feet when they have their emergency lights activated. Chances are if a police unit is operating in emergency mode (lights and siren), they are legally traveling above the posted speed limit. If you’re following the police unit you’re most likely SPEEDING! Once again, police units are omitted from this law probably because police units don’t have a problem with motorists wanting to follow.center_img MJ from Port Arthur asks: My truck registration is due to expire at the end of September, and I’ve already received my renewal notice. I’m hearing that even after being inspected, I won’t be able to acquire a new registration sticker for my truck’s windshield because they’re in short supply due to the coronavirus. If this is true, what’s to prevent me from being cited for an expired registration even though the truck was inspected, but no replacement could be obtained?Answer: The worldwide Pandemic COVID-19 has readjusted just about all aspects of our lives, and the vehicle registration process in the state of Texas was not immune to said adjustment. MJ, I have good news for you, apparently that was a void rumor about Texas being short on registration stickers because of COVID-19. You can also get your registration sticker by mailing your registration back in, online or you can stop in local places to get your sticker since you have your vehicle inspected already and you’re not 30 days past your expiration date.last_img read more

Obama airs concerns about Ebola quarantine policies

first_imgIn the ongoing debate over levels of quarantine for health workers returning from West Africa, President Barack Obama today said policies based on fear rather science and best practices could discourage volunteers from signing on to help battle the disease.He said he would meet tomorrow with health workers who have worked in the region or are planning to travel there. Obama made the comments, his first public ones on the subject, in a short statement today on the White House’s South Lawn, which was broadcast live by CBS News.His remarks came hours after the second nurse infected with Ebola in Dallas was released from Emory University Hospital in Atlanta and as controversy still swirled over New Jersey’s recent mandatory quarantine at a Newark hospital of a nurse from Maine who was returning from a Doctors without Borders (MSF) assignment in West Africa.Kaci Hickox was kept in isolation against her will at a hospital over the weekend but was released yesterday to return home to Maine, which also has a mandatory quarantine policy. Her attorney said today she is at an undisclosed location while she works out details with Maine’s health department, the Associated Press (AP) reported.It’s unclear if she has agreed to be quarantined or if a quarantine is in place, according to the report. She didn’t have a fever, but she and her doctor said facial flushing led to an elevated temperature reading when it was taken with a forehead scanner after a few hours of being detained at the airport. Hickox has tested negative for Ebola.Obama said he met with members of the US Agency for International Development (USAID) Disaster Assistance Response Team (DART), which Obama said has been on the ground since early August and serves as the backbone of the US response to the outbreak. Obama said the team reported some progress in Liberia, along with some infrastructure improvements.”It’s critical that we maintain that leadership,” he said. “We don’t want to discourage our healthcare workers from going to the front lines.”It’s important to remember that only two people have contracted Ebola on US soil, Obama said, both of whom were nurses who helped care for the first US patient, Thomas Eric Duncan, a Liberian man who died from his infection at a Dallas hospital on Oct 8.He added that it’s important that the nation works together to make sure workers are willing and able to volunteer to help in West Africa, and that they are thanked and supported, while being monitored in a prudent fashion. “We want to make sure every policy put in place is supportive of their efforts.”New Jersey, New York, and a handful of other states have announced more stringent quarantine policies than revised recommendations announced by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) yesterday. The CDC’s recommendations are based on levels of risk, and for health workers returning from West Africa, the agency suggests more detailed active monitoring, tailored to each person’s situation.A handful of states, however, recently unveiled policies requiring mandatory quarantine for health workers who return from the three hardest-hit outbreak countries: Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. The announcements have been met with pushback from several medical professional groups.Second nurse discharged from EmoryMeanwhile, Amber Joy Vinson, the second Dallas nurse infected with Ebola, left Emory University Hospital today, where she had been hospitalized since Oct 15.The hospital said in a statement that a series of test by teams at Emory and the CDC show that she is free of the virus and that her discharge poses no public health threat. Bruce Ribner, MD, who directs Emory’s Serious Communicable Disease United, which has now treated four Ebola patients, said the healthcare team is extremely pleased with Vinson’s recovery. “We were inspired by her courageous attitude and the strong support of her family and health care colleagues in Dallas,” he said.In a statement she read at a hospital press briefing today, Vinson spoke of her faith in God and thanked her family and care team. She also thanked two health workers recovered from Ebola for donating convalescent serum to her and other patients. They are Kent Brantly, MD, and Nancy Writebol, both of whom were treated for their infections at Emory’s special unit after they were infected while working as medical missionaries in Liberia.”While this is a day for celebration and gratitude, I ask that we not lose focus on the thousands of families who continue to labor under the burden of this disease in West Africa,” Vinson said.Vinson flew to Ohio during her active monitoring period and before the infection in the first nurse, Nina Pham, was known. Vinson’s fever began within hours of returning to Dallas, prompting flight passenger tracing and contact monitoring in Ohio. According to the latest update from the Ohio Department of Health, state public health authorities are monitoring 163 contacts, 3 of whom are quarantined.The nurses’ infections exposed gaps in hospital preparedness for Ebola and led to tighter CDC personal protective equipment (PPE) recommendations for health workers who care for Ebola patients.Call for better PPEIn a related development, three doctors with the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine’s Department of Internal Medicine today said in an editorial that although improved federal recommendations should diminish the risk to health providers, they aren’t enough—better designs and technologies are needed. The editorial, by Michael Edmond, MD, MPH, MPA; Daniel Diekema, MD, MS; and Eli Perencevich, MS, appeared today in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).They wrote that clinical and microbiological features of Ebola infection should guide current recommendations, given how likely health workers are to be in contact with body fluids and how massively viral loads spike as patients get sicker. They said gowns and gloves should be assumed to be contaminated if the patient is vomiting and has diarrhea.Removing PPE without touching the skin or underclothing is difficult without extensive practice, they wrote, and although new recommendations are likely to diminish the risk, PPE removal is even more complicated, the three doctors wrote.”Some products provide excellent protections but are nearly impossible to remove without self-contamination,” they said, noting that hoods, for example, could be redesigned to make them open and fall away from the worker to avoid touching skin.Reengineering PPE is needed for health workers in hospitals as well as those in Africa’s outbreak zones. “A novel approach to PPE that provides an impermeable fluid barrier that is both more comfortable and easier to don and remove would be a substantial step forward,” they wrote.Other developmentsAustralia has banned visas from Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone, the first developed nation to impose a broad travel ban, Reuters reported today. Australia has not reported any Ebola cases and has resisted sending health workers to help battle the disease in the outbreak region. Australia’s government said the travel ban is a necessary safety precaution, but some global health experts criticized the move as politically motivated and an overreaction. Since early in the outbreak the World Health Organization (WHO) has urged countries not to impose travel restrictions, saying the measures could hurt the flow of materials and outbreak responders to the region and increase economic hardships on the countries.Public health teams are monitoring 82 people who had contact with Mali’s first Ebola case-patient, a toddler who died from her infection last week, according to a Reuters report that cited WHO spokesman Tarik Jasarevic. He said three WHO officials were already on the ground helping the country with its preparedness against the disease, and five other experts on the way. So far no other Ebola infections have been detected, according to the report. The WHO said in its Oct 24 statement on the detection of Mali’s first case that the situation was particularly worrisome, because the 2-year-old girl from Guinea had visible symptoms during several stops on her way to Keyes region, where she died.The geographic distribution of Ebola cases in West Africa’s outbreak region has changed over the past month, according to a report in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) from the CDC’s incident management epidemiology team and health ministries in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. Counts are now highest in areas around Monrovia and Bong district in Liberia, Freetown and northwestern districts of Sierra Leone, and Macenta district in Guinea. In the month before, the main hot spot was in the areas where the three countries meet. The groups’ incidence analysis shows the highest rates are in two districts of Guinea (Gueckedou and Macenta), five districts of Liberia (Bomi, Bong, Lofa, Margibi, and Montserrado), and four districts of Sierra Leone (Bombali, Kailahun, Kenema, and Port Loko).The WHO today welcomed Swiss regulatory approval for a trial of an experimental Ebola vaccine at Lausanne University Hospital, which clears the way for the vaccine to be used on 120 people. The trial involves the modified chimpanzee adenovirus vaccine (chAD3 ZEBOV), developed by the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) and GSK. Other trials of the vaccine are under way in Mali, the United States, and the United Kingdom. The WHO is also coordinating a trial of a second experimental vaccine that uses a vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV-ZEBOV), which will be tested in Switzerland at Geneva University Hospital.The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Oct 25 announced emergency use authorization (EUA) for two BioFire Defense diagnostic tests to detect the Ebola Zaire virus in people with Ebola symptoms or in those who may have been exposed. The BioFire Defense FilmArray NGDA BT-E Assay is for use in labs designated by the Department of Defense, and the BioFire Defense FilmArray Biothreat-E is for labs certified to perform high-complexity tests. The EUA for the second test allows hospitals with certified labs to conduct a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test for Ebola in-house without having to send the sample to an outside lab.See also:Oct 28 Emory University Hospital press releaseOct 28 JAMA viewpointOct 28 Reuters story on Australian visa banOct 28 AP storyOct 28 Reuters story on Ebola in MaliOct 28 MMWR reportOct 28 WHO statement on Swiss Ebola vaccine trial approvalOct 25 FDA statement on Biothreat-E testOct 25 FDA statement on NGDS BT-E testlast_img read more

Strong third quarter lifts HVA over the Cougars

first_imgShare this:FacebookTwitter Hardin Valley Acadamy used an 11 – 0 run in the third quarter to break a 32 – 32 halftime deadlock en route to a 60 – 53 win over the Campbell Cougars Saturday afternoon at HVA.   The Cougars trailed 13 – 12 after the first quarter and then outscored the Hawks 20 – 19 in the second quarter to knot the game at 32 at intermission.  But it was HVA’s 16 – 7 third quarter that proved to be the difference maker as it took a 48 – 39 lead into the fourth quarter.  Campbell’s 14 – 12 edge in the last frame was not enough as HVA held on for the win.Campbell’s largest lead came at 21 – 17 in the second quarter while HVA was up by 13 at 48 – 35 at the end of that 11 – 0 run late in the third.Cougar Coach Darrell Cox told Josh Parker on the TCAT Postgame Report on WLAF’s B & M Tires Sports Network, “This team has played hard for five games, and they don’t have a win yet, but you know it’s coming.  You can see it.” Three days ago,  Cox changed his team’s defense to shore up its rebounding deficiencies, and you could see the difference in Friday and Saturday’s games.  The switch was from a 3 – 2 to a 2 – 3 zone.“I don’t know what else you want out of ’em (the Cougars) as far as effort goes.  They’re giving me just about all they have,” Cox added.Jake Lane’s 10 points, all in the first half, carried the Cougars as Carter Wells chipped in nine followed by eight from Bryce Duncan and seven points by Lawson Shoun.  Nate Walden and Drew Jordan each tallied six-points.  Landon Addington added four as Spencer Boshears  put up three points.Campbell is 0 and 5 on the young season heading into the first District 3 game of the year.  The JVs start off Tuesday’s action at home with Powell at 4:30 pm.  The Lady Cougars play at 6 pm with the Cougars and Panthers in the night cap at 8 pm.  The Voice of the Cougars, Josh Parker, sends you the coverage over the WLAF – B & M Tires Sports Network.  That’s live radio over AM 1450 and FM 100.9 with the live telecast on 1450wlaf.com.  (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 11/24/2018-7PM)last_img read more

first_imgFrom left, Paul Sturgeon, Bill Kana, Rod Howett and Dave Horne.The Jomtien Golf SocietyMonday, Jan. 22, King Naga – StablefordThis was our first visit here for some considerable time and a very reasonable package but be aware, there is a golf cart selection with three various types and three prices.Thirty-six points was the highest score of the day with Geoff Randall winning division 2 while Barry Stirling was second two points behind and there were three 30-pointers fighting for third place, Bill Kana taking it on count-back over Andrew van de Laan in fourth and Alan Bissell, who lost out altogether. Barry Richmond beat Jim Connelly on a 18/15 count-back to win division 1 after they both came in with 31 points.  Paul Vendergaard was third on 30 points and Paul Young beat Niels Viuff on a 16/13 count-back for fourth after both posted a poor 29 points overall.Near pins went to (Division 1) Pete Sumner, Niels Viuff and Paul Young, and (Division 2) Jim Connelly (2), Andrew Van De Laan and Barry Stirling.Jim Connelly birdied the 7th and Barry Stirling the 5th for the only ‘2’s of the day.Friday, Jan. 26, Eastern Star – 2-Man ScrambleAfter Wednesday’s washout at Pattaya Country Club, where John Hughes posted a best ever but ultimately non-counting 41 points, we had 16 groups show up on Friday for a two-man scramble, with one player from division 1 (1-16) and one from division2 in each team.  Each team also had to have a minimum of seven drives per player and were given a 40% combined handicap allowance.With two 63 pointers in, Pete Sumner and Alan Bissell won the day on a 29/31 back-nine count-back over Paul Sturgeon and Bill Kana.Mikael Andersson and Joe Joe Kubon came in third on 63.4, Gerry Dooley and John Kelly took fourth with 65.0 and Dave Horne and Rod Howett were fifth with a score of 65.2.Individual near pins went to (Div 1) Colin Aspinall, Bob Comartin and Dennis Scougall, and (Div 2) Mike Lewis, Eamon Murtach and Max Wilson (2).There were plenty of birdie ‘2’s, coming from Pete Sumner and Alan Bissell (17th), Dave Horne and Rod Howett (6th), Dennis Scougall and Mike Lewis (6th), Paul Sturgeon and Bill Kana (3rd), Jerry McCarthy and Max Wilson (3rd) and Steve Harris and Eamon Murtach (17th).last_img read more

Miss India Guyana STRIPPED of title

first_imgAfter three warnings both verbally and written, Miss Guyana India, Brittany Singh, was stripped of her title by the Miss India Organisation in November 2016. Singh was selected to represent Guyana following an audition at the Princess Hotel on September 4, 2016.She travelled to the New Jersey, USA, in October where she represented Guyana with pride and dignity and would have copped the award for Miss Photogenic and placed in the top 10.Immediately after the pageant, franchise holder, Umadevi Bux praised Singh for keeping the Golden Arrowhead flying and now with this announcement of the dethroning, it has left many wondering what went wrong.Bux did not send out an official release to the media, but instead posted one on the Organisation’s Facebook page, citing misconduct demeanours as the main cause for stripping the queen of her title.Upon the posting to the release, Singh was contacted and refused to comment on the issue and related that a release will be sent via her Attorney.However, after some digging, the conflict allegedly started something back and surrounds collecting finances from sponsors without informing the committee, screaming and shouting at committee members and sponsors in New York and Guyana but more importantly, allegedly having an inappropriate relationship. The dethroned queen would have also inserted a tattoo on her back although the committee warned against it.When contacted for an official comment, Bux stated that she wished not to list the numerous reasons for the committee stripping Singh but redirected Guyana Times Entertainment to the release.The release stated that “The Miss India Guyana Organisation will like the public to be informed Ms Brittany Singh is no longer Miss India Guyana 2016 and is in no way associated with the Organisation and its affiliates. She is not authorised to use, display and/or identify herself under the Miss India brand (Miss India Guyana 2016, Miss India Worldwide top 10, Miss Worldwide Photogenic)”.The release stated that she was dethroned on November 16, 2016, for breach of contract.  The release added that on October 6, 2016, Singh was warned in New Jersey followed by another warning on October 14, 2016, in Guyana and the final warning was done on November 16, 2016, the day she was stripped.This was done after consulting with the legal minds. “It is the exclusive judgment of Miss India Guyana Organisation, that in recent months Singh has not conducted herself in accordance with the standards and dignity expected by the prestigious title and standards as agreed to by her under the Contract”, the release added.last_img read more
