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.

WHS band receives “I” rating at Kansas State Fair; gigs start to come its way

first_imgby Amber Schmitz, Sumner Newscow — The Wellington High School band, consisting of 37 ensemble members and four color guard, traveled to the Kansas State Fair in Hutchinson and received a I rating recently.“We normally do pretty well with that particular performance,” said Band Director Ben Olson, who is in his second teaching year here. “Last year we also received a I.”The first performance was a parade competition, where the band marched down Main Street of Hutchinson for about six blocks and played the school fight song. They were judged on stepping, line spaces, drum line, drum majors and color guard.“It was a great performance to see where we’re at and what we need to work on,” Olson said. “They did really well, but it was not a perfect performances. We will know our spot as we progress.”This year, the band also performed a secondary performance, which included two songs from their marching band show, a melody of Queen songs and “Dream On” by Aerosmith.“We are planning a bigger marching band performance in October, so this was a great way to see where we’re at,” Olson said. “They did really well and worked really, really hard for those ratings we received, but we still want to be better.”The parade performance lasted 10 minutes, including drum line cadences. The other performance lasted about five minutes, but they play really fast.“I think last year it was a learning experience for everybody, how they play and how I teach,” Olson said. “Comparitively, they are playing 100% better, now we have found the rhythm between the music director and ensemble. The progress is amazing with what they worked toward and where they are now.”The recent mattress sale raised $5,000 for the band.“The marching parade performance was really, really good,” Olson said. “We spent quite a bit of time working on the fundamentals to make sure we’re in step and on the correct foot. I drilled them a lot in the first part of camp, and we will continue as the year goes on.”Olson said the performance at the fairground was pretty average.“It was pretty average, it wasn’t perfect, but it was good, there were some balance issues,” Olson said. “We weren’t playing as one band, with a few individuals, you could hear just their sound, and we need to hear the sound of the band together as one. We know that’s an issue, so we are working on that. The individuals who stood out backed up, and the others stepped forward, so now we have a good balance in band. We have learned a lot about our sound to learn how to blow the judges away. When we came back from the fair, we knew what we had to do, so far it’s been awesome.”For the most part, Olson said, all three of their songs are memorized, and they are working into movement for football games.” We will do one of our songs on Friday,” Olson said. “For the last game of the year, will do a full show, as well as take our performance to Arkalalah. Then in November, we have been invited to play halftime of the Southwestern game. We’re getting noticed, that’s pretty cool. We want to get noticed in a big way, that’s what our hope it.”Follow us on Facebook.Follow us on Twitter. Close Forgot password? Please put in your email: Send me my password!
