first_imgLimerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Twitter Print PTSB has been told to repay the Limerick mother the legal fees that it charged for taking her to courtPERMANENT TSB Limerick has been ordered to return or credit €2,710 in legal fees it charged a young mother they took to court in a bid to repossess her home.County Registrar Pat Wallace issued the instruction after he was given copies of the woman’s bank accounts detailing the charges that had been made.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “And all of this, while I had been paying my mortgage”, the young mother said.In July, Mr Wallace heard the woman explained that in 2013 the bank instigated proceedings against her.“I just want to tell the court that I have been paying my mortgage in full for the last two years but each time this case is brought before the court, the bank apply their legal fees to my arrears. I have been paying it all and then they throw this on top. I just can’t cope with it”, she said.The young mother explained that at the start of 2013, she had an illness and missed four mortgage repayments.“The bank brought me to court but I got back on track and I haven’t missed a payment in more than two years and they still have me here and expect me to pay for their fees.”She borrowed €146,000 to buy her home in 2008.As of last July, she owed €147,000 and €13,000 in arrears.Bank charges that were applied by PTSB included legal fees for the case they were taking against her.They had sought an indefinite adjournment but Mr Wallace asked for a full review of the file.Other account actions by the bank had also been questioned by the young mother prompting Mr Wallace to criticise lenders adding that he had a “serious issue with arbitrary in-house cost being loaded against a borrower’s loan.“It is the court that determines and awards legal costs where applicable”, he said.After reviewing the woman’s statements and documentation from the bank, Mr Wallace said “I have found that €2,710 has been charged to you by the bank in legal fees.“Therefore, when these proceedings are resolved, I want that amount to be credited or returned to this woman,” he instructed the bank’s solicitor.The case was adjourned until next January for review.In another case, Mr Wallace gave a similar instruction again to PTSB over €2,319 they had taken from a Limerick father under similar circumstances.

Insect Scouting

first_imgGeorgia farmers and agriculture consultants hoping to refine their scouting skills are invited to this year’s Insect Scout Schools, hosted by University of Georgia Cooperative Extension.The schools will be held in Tifton, Georgia, at the UGA Tifton Campus Conference Center on Monday, June 13, and in Midville, Georgia, at the Southeast Georgia Research and Education Center on Tuesday, June 21. The trainings in both locations will begin at 9 a.m. and end at 12:30 p.m. Program topics will cover scouting for bug and larval insect pests, identifying beneficial insects, and conducting in-field reviews. Participants will also learn about safety precautions and procedures. Crops that will be covered include cotton, peanuts and soybeans. According to Phillip Roberts, Extension cotton and soybeans entomologist on the UGA Tifton Campus, the scout schools are beneficial to new insect scouts being introduced to insect monitoring. They’re also helpful for veteran insect scouts because the sessions serve as a review. “These scout schools are very beneficial to farmers who want to learn more about insect pests and the problems they can pose to their respective crops,” said Roberts. “Not all insects are bad, and just because you see a pest doesn’t necessarily mean you have a problem that warrants chemical treatments. That’s why these schools are so important – they cover a wide range of information that’s beneficial to growers’ crops.” For additional information about the programs, contact Debbie Rutland about the event in Tifton at 229-386-3424 or Peyton Sapp about the event in Midville at 706-554-2119.(Kenzie Kesselring is an intern on the UGA Tifton Campus.)last_img read more

Dodgers’ deadline deals are not likely to appease impatient fan base

first_imgYeah, but how many prospects die on the vine? You can look at Baseball America’s Top 10 Dodger list in 2013 and see Chris Reed, Zach Lee Paco Rodriguez and Matt Magill.Yeah, but Friedman is always preaching depth, and the Dodgers just thinned out their farm system.Yeah, but Hill has been outstanding this season, and nobody yet sees Clayton Kershaw coming through that door.For the record, the Dodgers still have Jose DeLeon , poised to make that last step in September, and they didn’t move Julio Urias or ascending first baseman Cody Bellinger. Cotton is a 5-foot-11 righthander, of which there are few in the majors. Montas hasn’t been healthy long enough for anyone to learn if he can pitch or just throw.Hill is on his eighth team. He also has 90 strikeouts in 76 innings. His curveball has been shiny enough to set up high 91-mph fastballs that somehow get through, and he’s given up two home runs in 76 innings. He has a 2.25 ERA in 14 starts. Can he win a playoff game against Stephen Strasburg or Jon Lester? The Dodgers will get back to you on that.Reddick was a more curious selection, although he has a .career-high .816 OPS at the moment and has a big-time rightfield arm.The lefty hitter is a non-starter against lefty pitchers. He has no extra base hits against them in 71 plate appearances. Normally that would mean a continuing role for Yasiel Puig, except Puig wasn’t on the Dodgers’ flight to Colorado Monday, after he heard he might be traded or demoted. To be traded, one needs a team to be interested, and apparently no one was.The Dodgers are hitting .226 against southpaws. That’s worst in the National League. They’re seventh against righthanders. If they really wanted to grab a lefty-hitting rightfielder, they could have gone high for Bruce, who leads the league in RBI and has a respectable .778 OPS against lefties. Instead the Mets pried Bruce loose from Cincinnati.Everything the Dodgers do is set in context against the Giants, who traded third baseman Matt Duffy and prospects to Tampa Bay for Moore, who is having his first healthy season since he went 17-4 in 2013. Moore is 7-7 but has dazzled people recently, including the Dodgers last week.The Giants also gave up high-end prospect Phil Bickford to get reliever Will Smith, the ex-Angel, from Milwaukee. There’s risk in doing that, but the Giants are rarely wrong about pitchers. Moore has more good years left than Hill does.Otherwise, Texas protected most of its young talent and still traded for Beltran, Lucroy and closer Jeremy Jeffress. The Rangers and Indians are now co-favorites in the American League, if you can imagine.The Angels probably aren’t done dealing, but they gave up Hector Santiago and Joe Smith on Monday. The key import is Alex Meyer, a 6-foot-9 righthander who once was a Top 20 prospect. He couldn’t get his bearings with Minnesota, but general manager Billy Eppler is wise to take on turnaround projects like this.As for the Dodgers, they were roused by Kershaw’s injury and might get another jolt from Hill and Reddick. But until Kershaw can bend without breaking, everything else is a yeah-but.Three facts:1. The Dodgers have cut six games off San Francisco’s divison lead since June 25, from eight games to two.2. Three times in their last six games, the Dodgers have scored nine or more runs.3. The Dodgers are 14-16 against the Giants, Cubs, Cardinals, Nationals and Marlins.(30) Those names are all on the Dodgers’ top 10 prospect list, as recalibrated at midseason by Baseball America, and Hill and Reddick are free agent-eligible at season’s end.Sale, the White Sox’s ace lefty and fashion critic, didn’t go anywhere, and neither did his partner Jose Quintana. But Jonathan Lucroy, Andrew Miller, Jay Bruce, Matt Moore and Carlos Beltran did, in a flurry of speed-dating that indicates how pennant-hungry they are in Texas, Cleveland and San Francisco.There’s nothing wrong with doing nothing. It just doesn’t sell with impatient fans and news-hungry media. You can trace part of Atlanta’s decrepitude to the day in 2007 when they took poisoned-pawn Mark Teixeira and restocked Texas’ franchise with prospects. In 2012 the Angels “went for it” and got Zack Greinke for two months, depriving themselves of Jean Segura for maybe 12 years.This Dodgers-Oakland transaction is a “yeah-but” thing, like so many deals done by Andrew Friedman and Farhan Zaidi.Yeah, but Montas heaves in the high 90s and Cotton has a 1.15 WHIP in the offensively-deranged Pacific Coast League, and Holmes is only 20 years old. Those who heard the Dodgers had just traded three power right-handers on Monday probably assumed they were getting somebody like Chris Sale.Well, it was a sale, all right.The Oakland Athletics pawned off two short-timers, pitcher Rich Hill and outfielder Josh Reddick, in exchange for Grant Holmes, Jharel Cotton and Frankie Montas.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
