(Katarina Sostaric/KSTK)Wrangell Tribal Council Vice President Richard Oliver said it is a place for local artists, carvers and entrepreneurs to develop their skills and trade.“Our mission is to foster the spiritual, mental, physical and social development of our tribe,” Oliver said. “And it is also to help build a strong, unified and self-reliant membership.”It is the second part of a three-phase plan to revive the Wrangell tribe’s assets. The first part was completed when the Chief Shakes Tribal House was rebuilt in 2013. The next step for the association is to carve replicas of eight totem poles that used to stand near the tribal house on Shakes Island. The cultural center is where carvers will work on that project.Virginia Oliver introduced Tlingit elder Marge Byrd.Photo: Katarina Sostaric/KSTK“Cedar Rope Mother is going to help us bless the building right now. She is the one that had been holding the culture here in Wrangell for us,” Oliver said. “And she was holding on with a cedar rope, holding us all together so we could come here today so that you could be a witness to this.”Together, they led a cedar bough ceremony to purify the new building. A long line of tribal members and spectators slowly circled the outside of the building, singing and brushing the walls with fragrant cedar boughs. When everyone circled the building, Byrd, Cedar Rope Mother, spoke.“It’s like we always hear. We’ve been here for a long time. And we’ll always be here, as long as you hear our drum,” Byrd said. “We’re here, and we’re going forward. We have our new facility. We have our new Shakes house, and some other things going on ahead to keep our culture alive for our children and our grandchildren and our great-grandchildren.”Oliver explained cedar is a cleansing and purifying medicine of the Tlingit people. She said it is wonderful to see these ceremonies being revived in Wrangell.“It’s powerful to me. I’m so glad that this is finally happening,” Oliver said. “And now we’re looking forward to the re-carving of our totem poles and putting up those totem poles and putting the other ones to rest.”Sealaska board member Richard Rinehart Jr., who is from Wrangell, said he wanted to convey the regional Native corporation’s appreciation for the cultural revival that has taken place in the local Native community.Tlingit elder Marge Byrd thanks project manager Todd White.“It’s obvious, and everybody can see it,” Rinehart Jr. said. “Where for a number of years things seemed silent. Our old ANB hall had fallen into disrepair. Our totem poles were falling down. The totem poles are still down, but thanks to Rasmuson and a number of the other contributors, these things are all coming back to life.”The Rasumson Foundation supports Alaskan nonprofits, and it helped fund construction of the cultural center and the Chief Shakes Tribal House.Rinehart Jr. also mentioned the role this cultural revival plays in the effort to push landless legislation through Congress to make the Wrangell tribe a federally recognized Native village.Construction of the carving facility was completed last fall, led by Project Manager Todd White. It has already housed a major carving project and Native arts classes. Artists also use the building to sell their goods to tourists.Tribal Administrator Aaron Angerman said it has been more than 10 years since they started planning the cultural restoration.“It’s great to see that we’re this far and knowing that we’re going to be carving these totems very soon. And we made it this far from next to nothing,” Angerman said. “And I’m really confident these things will pay dividends to members of this community for decades and decades to come.”After a series of speeches, it was time to cut the big blue ribbon tied across the front doors.Kris Norosz of the Rasmuson Foundation held the ribbon down so Marge Byrd could cut it, and they welcomed everyone inside.

Freddie Mac Offers Assistance to Home Buyers April 10, 2017 586 Views in Daily Dose, News, Origination Share Assistance manufactured homes 2017-04-10 Seth Welborn Freddie Mac wants to help homebuyers become “mortgage-ready,” starting in Kentucky. The GSE is teaming up with Louisville-based housing intermediary Next Step Network and three nonprofit housing counseling agencies to implement an online education curriculum, with a focus on manufactured homes.Their goal is to support access to credit and affordable lending for the manufactured homes segment of the housing market. Freddie Mac stated that manufactured homes are a crucial source of housing stock, and the average price of a manufactured home is $71,600, while the average price of a new, single-family, site-built home is $373,900 according to the U.S. Census Bureau.Freddie Mac previously announced their partnership with Next Step in November 2016, with a plan to develop a consumer education curriculum for manufactured home buyers called SmartMH, an energy-efficient manufactured housing initiative led by lenders, retailers, manufacturers, nonprofits and public stakeholders. The program pairs participating buyers with one of three U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development-approved housing counseling agencies in Kentucky: Community Ventures Corporation in Lexington, Kentucky; Frontier Housing in Morehead, Kentucky; or In Charge Debt Solutions in Orlando, Florida. The education curriculum will be offered through eHome America, an online homebuyer education platform.These agencies will provide assistance to potential homebuyers with blemished credit histories and offer homebuyer education and advice on strengthening their credit and navigating the finance and purchase processes.Several lenders are already participating in Next Step’s SmartMH program, including Community Ventures, Credit Human Federal Credit Union, Frontier Housing, Forcht Bank, Kentucky Housing Corporation, and Key Mortgage Company. Freddie Mac and Next Step are in the process of seeking new lenders interested in making real property loans for energy-efficient manufactured homes.

Spurs were knocked out of the FA Cup by Norwich City in midweek and have lost four games in a row, leaving their campaign on the brink of tatters. Sandwiched between defeats to RB Leipzig in the Champions League and Norwich in the FA Cup, Spurs have also lost back-to-back league matches against Chelsea and Wolverhampton Wanderers. Teams around them may also be struggling for form, but Tottenham have slipped to seventh and are now three points off the top four, while fifth-placed Manchester United are two points better off. To make matters worse for Jose Mourinho, he witnessed Eric Dier confront a supporter after Wednesday’s penalty shootout loss to Norwich, an incident that may land the versatile midfielder in trouble with the Football Association. Mourinho’s honeymoon period, if there ever was one, is over and Tottenham are now in desperate need of three points in Lancashire on Saturday. The bad news for Spurs is that Burnley are in good form, the Clarets having won two and drawn two of their last four league games to move into the top half of the division. If Manchester City’s European ban is upheld, an extra Europa League spot will be up for grabs and Sean Dyche’s men – now just two points behind Spurs – are well positioned to take advantage. Burnley’s strong recent run has been built on a solid defence, with Nick Pope strengthening claims that he should be England’s number one at this summer’s European Championship finals by keeping three clean sheets in four matches. In fact, only Liverpool (12) have kept more shutouts than Burnley’s 11 in the Premier League this season. Up the other end, however, the Clarets have failed to score in two of their last four. Dyche’s side still have Tottenham, Man City and Liverpool to face in their remaining 10 matches, but a second season of European football in three seasons is still a possibility. Beating Tottenham today would see Burnley leapfrog their opponents and send out a message to the rest of the division. However, they have won just two of their 11 Premier League meetings with Spurs, albeit with both of those wins coming at Turf Moor. Burnley possible XI: Pope, Bardsley, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor, Hendrick, Westwood, Cork, McNeil, Wood, Rodriguez. Tottenham possible XI: Lloris, Aurier, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Davies, Ndombele, Winks, Lo Celso, Lucas, Alli, Bergwijn.Tags: BurnleyDele AlliJose MourinhoTottenham Hotspur
