It's announcement has been received with mixed reviews. Many homeowners on the brink of foreclosure are breathing a temporary sigh of relief, as Bank of America announced it would become the first major bank to halt both foreclosure proceedings and sales. This will take effect in each of the 50 U.S. states. Paul F. Stillwaggon NJ Estates Real Estate Group October 2010 LINKING THE LATEST TECHNOLOGYTO OLD FASHIONED SERVICE Copyright © 2010 Realty TimesAll Rights Reserved. The decision comes on the heels of mounting political pressure, namely that from Senator Christopher Dodd, chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, and the impending November 16th hearing on foreclosures.

We have been active with successfully marketing and selling homes in the Historical town of Somerville. The town of Somerville is the county seat of Somerset County and encompasses only 2.36 sq miles. It is surrounded on all four sides by Bridgewater. It boasts a diversified selection of homes for everyone, from apartments all the way up to Victorian homes and Stately Colonials. This quaint town might be small in size but it is large in spirit.

 The American Red Cross Babysitting Course says gone are the days of calling the neighbor's daughter to babysit. At least, without her having the proper credentials. Childcare on all levels is important. When education on childcare can be obtained, it should be embraced, because it only enhances the provider's knowledge. Case in point, the American Red Cross Babysitting Course offered May 22, 2010, 9:00 a.m. until 3:30 p.m., in the Fuld Auditorium, Somerset Medical Center, Somerville. The course is geared for youth ages 11 -15. The objective is to provide them with skill sets essential to provide safe and responsible care in the absence of parents or guardians. The training is designed to foster leadership skills, professionalism, basic care, safety, safe play and first aid. Upon comple...

I feel like I'm pretty up on the push for green jobs (creating jobs in the building and installation of wind turbines, construction of energy-efficient buildings, etc.) but this morning at the APHA meeting, I learned something about the occupational health angle of this movement. At a session from the Blue-Green Alliance, Walter Jones of the Laborers' Health and Safety Fund of North America and TJ Lentz of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health spoke about making green jobs safe jobs. So far, it seems that the shift toward greener buildings hasn't done much to make the construction or maintenance of these places safe for workers. (One positive point is that the use of safer paints and solvents can reduce workers' as well as residents' exposure to fumes.) Designers of ...

If you need to know about me, just ask or go to my home page: Leigh McLachlan:1oldrealestatepro or www.homesbymac.com Please tell me about you, what your needs are and when you want what you need. Somerville is the town where my business is located.  I have lived in Somerset County almost my entire life.  I run my own Real Estate Agency in the downtown, which is amazing. If you want to move to a town where you can walk down the streets, (with sidewalks), and people say hello -you're in Somerville. Since this is my first blog in AR, i will keep it short - just want to get to know you. Hope to see you soon.
