Today’s Photo from Ted Grussing Photography: Nailing it

Thursday, February 1st, 2018

By Ted Grussing

… absolute focus and concentration as this Drake Mallard is lowering his “landing gear” in preparation for his landing on a watery runway in less than a second … he nailed it and with his webbed feet acting as shoe skis and brakes, he settled into the pond with a great, but controlled splash! I love the built in, default, smile on his face … kind of a reminder about the effect that the smiles of we who have a choice can have on others who also have that choice. I like smiles!

(February 1, 2018)

Arizona is a non-judicial foreclosure state as are 31 other states. This means that a judge will never question paperwork submitted by a bank, the result is that your family home can be taken by a bank even if the banks’ documents are fraudulent.

In Yavapai County Arizona, the County officials actually assisted a bank in the foreclosure of one family’s home. Morgan Langan and his family purchased a home and the adjacent land in Cornville Arizona in 2007. In 2014, Langan combined the parcels as one parcel following directions from County Development Services Department simultaneously requesting the balances from the bank to payoff existing loans. A new deed was filed including a resurvey by a local engineering firm. Read More→
