  • 9/11 Anniversary

    Today marks the 18th anniversary of the terrorist attacks in New York and the Pentagon. Ceremonies and moments of silence are being held around the country. What does this day mean to you?

    As a vet this remembrance means a lot to me. It started an 18 year war. Many paid and have since then paid the ultimate price. We have a lot of war vets at the American Legion I belong to that have been to Iraq and Afghanistan. They need help as much as any Vietnam, Korean, WWll and WWl vets.

    IMO, we as a nation need to step back from being the world's police department. Rain hell on anyone who dares to attack us but step back from the world idiots that are out there.

      My brother in law is an Army Vet and served 4 tours, both in Iraq and Afghanistan. He is 100% disabled because of what was started on 9/11. So, (to me) 9/11 signaled the beginning of a war in which our men and women who served had, in some cases, very little knowledge of how they would return to US soil. My brother in law left high school, straight to boot camp. I have seen coworkers dive under their desks because they heard loud noises. I've seen homeless vets who can't get services simply because they don't have a mailing address.
      And Pac, yes! I agree, we are not the world's police department and we need to step back from that role.

        I belong to a group called Lane County Veterans Treatment Court. Basically I am a volunteer to help shuttle vets to and from the VA and anything legal related where they have to be in court but have no way of getting there. The homeless vets are a big concern because of the inability to adapt to coming back and they typically have no support group and then the next thing you know they get into trouble. I have even been called by the police to come get a vet that he/she did not really want to take to jail. I only do it on Monday's because I work Tuesday thru Saturday. Some vets are beyond help and that is rough to see but sometimes all they need is some help and support and they can then turn around and be productive.

          Of course you can auction a unit without a proper address. Just follow your states laws and send the proper notices the the address the tenant provided to you. I have people like this too. Usually they will get things fixed before a sale, but not always....

          Yes mold and mildew do spread via airborne spores. Which means it can spread from unit to unit.

          Advice, please. We have a customer who rents two units, payments timely with bank generated checks each month. All mail correspondence has been returned and a few months ago we received a text message to stop texting the phone number on file as it does not belong to this person. All is well until we...
