In addition, the entire process can be complicated by a slew of paperwork, payments, and transfers with many moving parts that are easy to miss.But, according to The Journal Times, one county in Wisconsin is making a small change to its foreclosure procedure that could go a long way in ensuring smooth transitions of title, one that the rest of the country could possibly benefit from if it goes as planned.The proposed change is as simple as removing a middle-man, the article notes. In Racine County, as of now, when a foreclosure is sold through the sheriff’s office the buyer receives a copy of the deed and is required to take that deed down to the Register of the Deed’s office to get it filed.However, this little step is often overlooked, according to the Racine County Register of Deeds, which can cause big problems for borrowers and the state, since the tax bill will continue to be sent to the old owner to never be paid. This can lead to further complications, like tax interception.The proposed bill, Senate Bill 175, would allow the Clerk of Courts Office to simply take the deed directly to the Register of Deeds Office, and eliminate the middle man, who has little incentive to make sure the task gets accomplished.Currently, this practice has been implemented in Milwaukee County, but if passed would become state-wide practice.Critical and constant examination of foreclosure requirements and best practices are vital to streamlining and simplifying the industry, and taking a look at what certain states and municipalities are doing is just one of the many ways for the industry to stay ahead of the curve.

It’s a funny thing how national exposure works. Everyone who doesn’t have it wants it, and those who are in the spotlight are always wishing it were on someone else.At Wisconsin’s annual media day Oct. 20, senior Kammron Taylor was asked if it was a breath of fresh air to finally have his program get some national recognition.Taylor, who has openly campaigned for UW attention in the past, sat for a moment pondering the correct response before finally answering.”Man, we know you guys have a job to do,” Taylor said, eventually indicating that the media has never won any games for the Badgers and that he didn’t want to get caught up in what the media says.Whether they like it or not, the members of the 2006 Wisconsin men’s basketball team now find themselves in an unusual position: squarely in the preseason limelight. In the USA Today-ESPN Coaches Poll released last week, UW was ranked No. 9 nationally. In a Big Ten writers’ poll conducted by the Capital Times, Wisconsin was tabbed as the class of the conference, collecting 17 of 22 first-place votes.”With all the expectations and high rankings and stuff like that, it’s kind of hard to [embrace it] because with Bo Ryan, nothing changes,” sophomore forward Marcus Landry said. “His whole style isn’t going change, ever.”As UW opens its preseason this Friday, with an exhibition game against UW-Stout, the Badgers find themselves at the beginning of what could be a very special ride. Players and coaches, however, refuse to equate any more excitement to the beginning of this season as in comparison to seasons past.”Last year’s first day is the same as this year’s first day,” sophomore forward Joe Krabbenhoft said.It’s understandable why Wisconsin is being looked upon as such an NCAA power this year, as UW brings back 12 players from a year ago, losing only senior swingman Ray Nixon to graduation, which equates to the Badgers returning 90 percent of their scoring from a year ago. In contrast, the vaunted Buckeyes bring back only 35.5 percent of their points.Even on an individual level, Wisconsin is getting recognition with star forward Alando Tucker being picked as the preseason Big Ten Player of the Year and receiving serious talk about being a Wooden Award candidate.”It’s not just what he does on the floor, it’s what he does off the floor,” junior Brian Butch said. “He’s just such a great leader.””With all the players we have back this year, he’s going to be even [harder] to stop this year than he was last year,” Taylor said.The fifth-year senior, who is one of the most difficult matchups in the country, makes life easier for the Badgers by drawing significant attention from opposing defenses no matter where he is on the floor.”Whenever he has the ball, and sometimes even when he doesn’t, you can see defenses slumping off, trying to cheat towards him,” Krabbenhoft said.Tucker is just the centerpiece of a Badger offensive attack that has several scoring options. Taylor, an honorable mention all-conference performer from a year ago, returns as one of the top three-point shooters and clutch players in the Big Ten. Taylor averaged 14.2 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.35 assists last season.”I feel like I can help this team and that I can be better,” Taylor said. “We as a team can be one of the best.”With a challenging schedule that is sure to rank highly in the RPI, the Badgers are ready to get their season started and see where all their experience will take them.”We’re all ready to get going,” said senior forward Jason Chappell, who started all but one game a year ago. “Everyone is just thrilled to back on the court and start playing again.””It only matters where we are at the end of the season, not the beginning,” Tucker said. “That’s what we are shooting for, being ranked high at the end.”

HEAVILY FAVORED PERFECT PIC STRETCHES OUT AND TAKES $56,000 SANTA ANITA ALLOWANCE FEATURE BY HALF LENGTH; CASSIDY TRAINEE, RIDDEN BY GONZALEZ, GETS 1 1/16 MILES ON MUDDY TRACK IN 1:46.22
ARCADIA, Calif. (Jan. 13, 2017)–Well beaten in the opening day Grade I La Brea at seven furlongs, trainer Jim Cassidy got his wish as his recently turned 4-year-old filly, Perfect Pic, stretched out for the first time on Friday at Santa Anita, winning the track’s $56,000 allowance feature by a half length while getting a mile and a sixteenth on a muddy main track in 1:46.22.Ridden in all five of her starts by Santiago Gonzalez, she was hustled from her outside post in a field of five older fillies and mares and although she tired noticeably late, notched her second victory from five career tries.When asked about stretching out the Ontario Canadian-bred daughter of Candy Ride, Cassidy responded, “This is what I wanted to do with her right from the start. The track’s heavy today, so this was a pretty good effort.Although she was beaten some 10 lengths in the La Brea on Dec. 26, Perfect Pic was the heavy choice at even money and paid $4.20, $3.00 and $2.40.Owned by Deron Pearson’s D P Racing, she picked up $33,600 for the win, increasing her earnings to $91,145.Ridden by Mario Gutierrez and trained by Peter Eurton, Lady Tapit rallied strongly for the place, finishing two lengths in front of That’s a Lady. The biggest price in the field at 14-1, Lady Tapit paid $10.00 and $3.60.The second choice in the wagering under Luis Contreras, That’s a Lady couldn’t hold off Lady Tapit late and finished third by 5 ¼ lengths. Off at 5-2, she paid $2.40 to show.Fractions on the race were 23.66, 47.38, 1:12.40 and 1:39.12.Santa Anita will embark upon a three-day holiday weekend on Saturday, with first post time for a nine-race card at 12:30 p.m. Admission gates open at 10:30 a.m.

Copenhagen: Greenland is not for sale and US President Donald Trump’s idea of buying the semi-autonomous Danish territory in the Arctic from Denmark is “an absurd discussion,” Denmark’s prime minister said. Mette Frederiksen, who was visiting the world’s largest island to meet Premier Kim Kielsen, told reporters: “Greenland is not Danish. Greenland is Greenlandic. I persistently hope that this is not something that is seriously meant.” Frederiksen said Sunday that the Arctic, with resources that Russia and others could exploit for commercial gain, “is becoming increasingly important to the entire world community.” Retreating ice could uncover potential oil and mineral resources in Greenland which, if successfully tapped, could dramatically change the island’s fortunes. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USHowever, no oil has yet been found in Greenlandic waters, and 80 per cent of the island is covered by an ice sheet that is up to 3 kilometers (1.9 miles) thick, which means exploration is only possible in coastal regions. Even there, conditions are far from ideal due to the long winter with frozen ports, 24-hour darkness and temperatures regularly dropping below minus 20 Fahrenheit (minus 30 Celsius) in the northern parts. Trump is expected to visit Denmark Sept. 2-3 as part of a trip to Europe. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential pollsTrump said Sunday that he is interested in the idea, but it’s not a priority of his administration. “Strategically it’s interesting and we’d be interested, but we’ll talk to them a little bit. It’s not No. 1 on the burner, I can tell you that,” the president said. It wouldn’t be the first time an American leader has tried to buy the world’s largest island. In 1946, the US proposed to pay Denmark USD 100 million to buy Greenland after flirting with the idea of swapping land in Alaska for strategic parts of the Arctic island. Under a 1951 deal, Denmark allowed the US to build bases and radar stations on Greenland. The US Air Force currently maintains one base in northern Greenland, Thule Air Force Base, some 1,200 kilometers (745 miles) south of the North Pole. Formerly military airfields in Narsarsuaq, Kulusuk and Kangerlussuaq have become civilian airports. The Thule base, constructed in 1952, was originally designed as a refueling base for long-range bombing missions. It has been a ballistic missile early warning and space surveillance site since 1961. Frederiksen, who became prime minister June 27, was on a planned two-day trip to Greenland before traveling to nearby Iceland for a meeting of the Nordic prime ministers. “Thankfully, the time where you buy and sell other countries and populations is over. Let’s leave it there. Jokes aside, we will of course love to have an even closer strategic relationship with the United States,” Frederiksen said.

Canada’s largest stock index set a new record Friday buoyed by energy and gold stocks, as Wall Street advanced on strong technology earnings.The S&P/TSX composite moved up 61.88 points to 15,953.51, breaking a previous high of 15,922.37 set on Feb. 21.Shares in oil and gas companies led the charge, with energy “having a really good day,” said Peggy Bowie, senior equity trader at Manulife Asset Management.The energy sector gained on average 2.61 per cent as the price of oil rose, with the December crude contract gaining US$1.26 to US$53.90 per barrel.“It’s definitely, I would have to say, buoyancy on the hope of growth,” Bowie said of the commodity’s upward movement.The promise of growth in the American market coupled with OPEC’s upcoming November meeting where members may decide to extend their production cuts is moving the price of oil, she said.Shares in the gold sector also helped lift the TSX, gaining 0.72 per cent on average, as the December gold contract advanced US$2.20 to US$1,271.80 an ounce.On Wall Street, two indices had record-setting growth. The S&P 500 index advanced 20.67 points to 2,581.07 and the Nasdaq composite index climbed 144.49 points to 6,701.26.Meanwhile, the Dow Jones industrial average gained 33.33 points to 23,434.19.“Today is a fascinating day because of tech,” said Bowie. “Very strong numbers blew everything out of the water.”Two tech giants, Alphabet and Microsoft, beat analyst expectations with their most recent earnings reports, sending their stocks up 5.1 per cent and 7.5 per cent respectively. Intel, Apple and Facebook shares all moved up as well.The tech sector boost came on the same day the U.S. Commerce Department said the American economy grew three per cent between July and September. The GDP growth was larger than expected and didn’t dip despite two major hurricanes during that time.In currency markets, the Canadian dollar was trading at an average price of 77.68 cents US, down 0.26 of a U.S. cent.Elsewhere in commodities, the December natural gas contract shed nearly nine cents to about US$2.96 per mmBTU and the December copper contract dropped about seven cents to roughly US$3.10 a pound.— With files from the Associated PressBy Aleksandra Sagan in Vancouver.Follow @AleksSagan on Twitter.
