I wonder what the true cost of the one way flight is, because if I'm not mistaken these flights are federally subsidized, which would likely mean the drive is cheaper.

This school board has run a great number of educators both experienced and fresh from of college, right out the doors. From Nicholas Schildt determining his own salary years ago, and essentially cutting his own checks, to many others, there exist many tales of corruption and incompetent leadership.

No, he is not mentally disabled just selfish. He lost his job and I am sure he felt like he was going to pay it back. Unfortunately, he had horrible living conditions with people that didn't help the situation. He, I am sure, didn't realize that monitor all of that if his moms bills weren't being paid first.

High level of foreclosures helps means state doesn't meet criteria

From Chicago Tribune:

The Federal Housing Finance Agency is increasing the guarantee fees that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac charge for mortgages they acquire, but Illinois will not be assessed an extra fee because of the high level of foreclosure activity in the state.

A year ago, the agency, which oversees Fannie and Freddie, proposed maintaining an extra guarantee fees in five states -- Illinois, Florida, Connecticut, New Jersey and New York -- that had extra-long foreclosure processing times. The FHFA said the extra ‘adverse market’ fees on newly acquired mortgages were necessary to cover the extra costs of managing the foreclosure process in some states. The fees were first put in place in all states in 2008.

On Monday, the FHFA announced it would increase all guarantee fees by an average of 0.14 percent on a typical 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage and by 0.04 percent on a 15-year, fixed-rate mortgage.

In addition, mortgages acquired in Florida, Connecticut, New Jersey and New York will carry an extra guarantee fee of 0.25 percent. Illinois, the agency said, does not meet the revised criteria for the extra fees.
