He came for her in that wagon. He loaded the frail old Chipita into the wagon. She sat on her coffin, made of cypress planks that had been nailed together that morning, smoking a corn husk cigarette, as the oxen team slowly transported her to the hanging tree. The wagon was pulled by oxen and people of the town walked behind. They were quiet -- the only noise was the creaking of the wagon. They didn't have far to go, less than 1,000 yards from the courthouse. The wagon stopped under a mesquite tree by the river. The people watched as a new hemp rope was placed around her neck. She was wearing a borrowed dress and a woman in town had fixed her hair. She showed no sign of fear. The people watched her, not talking. On that Friday, November the 13th, the crowd gathered on the Wier ranch on the banks of the Nueces River.
At the hanging tree, there was a faint murmur when the wagon moved forward, the rope jerked, and Chipita dropped, her feet inches from the ground. The oxen moved so slow, and her body was so frail, that the fall didn't break her neck. It took a long time for her to strangle to death. A woman watching fainted. A young boy ran away, crying. A man turned his back and said, "I've had enough of this."
The hangman cut her down and buried her in the cypress coffin at the foot of a mesquite and that ended the earthly existence of Chipita Rodriguez. Her ghost, they say, lives on. So does the legend. She had been hanged from a mesquite tree on Friday, November 13, 1863. She was 63 at the time of her death. Her last words were quoted with being, "No soy culpable" (I am not guilty).
At least one witness to the hanging claimed to have heard a moan from the coffin, which was placed in an unmarked grave. Her ghost is said to haunt San Patricio. Rodriguez is depicted as a spectre with a noose around her neck, riding through the mesquite trees or wailing from the riverbottoms.They went and hanged Josefa “Chipita” Rodriguez . . . and it turns out she wasn’t guilty.

She was convicted of murder and hanged in San Patricio County, Texas at the age of 63.
It’s a sad tale out of which a legend was born . . . and creepy tales of “Chipita” wandering the area as a ghost . . . moaning, upset with the injustice done to her.
There has been two operas, a number of books, newspaper articles and magazine accounts all of which suggest that an innocvent woman was hanged. It happened a while ago.
In 1829, settlers began arriving to the new community of San

Patricio, Texas. The Mexican government gave permission for this settlement in Texas in hopes of finding a place for 200 Irish Catholic families headed to the area. The original township was almost doomed from the beginning. The conflict between Texas and Mexico was brewing. In early 1836, the Battle of San

Patricio would cause most of the inhabitants to flee to safer ground. The town remained empty until 1845 when General Zachary Taylor arrived. San Patricio then began to thrive as more settlers came to the area. The town became a stopping place and supply station for travelers along the Cotton Road. But with prosperity comes the outlaws, saloons and traders of various sorts. Along with this group of people, we find the population of San Patricio trying to scratch out a living from these assorted people just passing through.
"Chipita" was a nickname derived from Josefa. Her father Pedro Rodriguez, on the wrong side of Santa Anna, brought her when she was a young girl, from Mexico to San Patricio de Hibernia, Texas. He joined Texas forces and was killed in the fighting. She took up with a drifter and bore him a son. He left her and took the boy -- so the story goes. For many years after her father’s death in the South Texas town of San Patricio, Chipita, with the help of Juan Silvera, ran a small inn that offered food and a cot on her porch to weary travelers, gamblers and cowboys along the Cotton Road and near the

The train was quite crowded, so a U.S. Marine walked the entire length looking for a seat, but the only seat left was taken by a well-dressed, middle-aged, French woman's poodle.
The war-weary Marine asked, "Ma'am, may I have that seat?"
The French woman just sniffed and said to no one in particular, "Americans are so rude. My little Fifi is using that seat." The Marine walked the entire train again, but the only seat left was under that dog.
"Please, ma'am. May I sit down? I'm very tired." She snorted, "Not only are you
Aransas River and close to the settlement of San Patricio.
It was past high summer, a bad time in the war, after the defeat at Gettysburg and fall of Vicksburg. It was not a festive time. A man who bought horses for the Confederate Army was riding to Mexico with $600 in gold to buy more horses. He was a big man with a beard. His name was John Savage. Savage brought $600 in gold to buy horses and carried it in his saddlebags. He had a nice meal with Chipita and then bedded down for the night on the porch.
The next morning Savage was gone. Chipita said she assumed he just wanted to get an early start and had headed out on the trail again.
A couple days later, however, two ladies from the Welder Ranch were washing clothes in the river when they found a burlap bag floating down stream. They were a curious pair and managed to get the bag on shore. They jumped back in horror, however, as they found the dismembered body of John Savage. His head had been split with an axe. It didn’t take too long for Sheriff William “Pole” Means to make up his mind that Chipita and her somewhat backward handyman (some thought he was her
Americans rude; you are also arrogant!" This time the Marine didn't say a word; he just picked up the little dog, tossed it out the train window, and sat down. The woman shrieked, "Someone must defend my honor! Put this American in his place!"
An English gentleman sitting nearby spoke up, "Sir, you Americans seem to have a penchant for doing the wrong thing. You hold the fork in the wrong hand. You drive your autos on the wrong side of the road. And now, Sir, you seem to have thrown the wrong bitch out the window." The Importance of Walking
Walking can add minutes to your life. This enables you at 85 years old to spend an additional 5 months in a nursing home at $7000 per month.
My grandpa started walking five miles a day when he was 60. Now he's 97 years old And we don't know where he is. I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.
The only reason I would take up walking is so that I could hear heavy breathing again.
born-out-wedlock son), Juan Silvera, had done the dirty deed.
Sheriff Means had gone to Chipita's. There was blood on her porch -- chicken blood, she said. Chipita and Juan Silvera, said to be a halfwit, were arrested. Chipita would say nothing. With prodding by the sheriff, Juan said he helped Chipita dump the body in the river. No, no . . . the explanation of butchering a chicken with the axe just wouldn’t do. Sheriff William Means had a murder on his hands and he, naturally, had to have a suspect. So he arrested Chipita and Silvera and charged them with first degree and second degree murder, respectively.
Strange thing, though. A couple days later John Savage’s saddlebags were found a bit further downstream and they still had the $600 in gold. Where, then, was the motive for murdering him? Sheriff Means was not a tolerable fellow. It was his duty to investigate the case. Since the body was found so close to Chipita’s Inn, he was quick to assume that Savage had been hacked to death with the same ax that Chipita split her wood. And butchered chickens.
Never mind. Sheriff had himself a suspect and he was quite con-

tent with that . . . let us not worry about silly details like a lack of motive or solid proof or even meaningful evidence.
The trial was quick. The prosecutor was John S. Givens. The judge was Benjamin F. Neal (he was the first mayor of Corpus Christi). The trial was also irregular. Sheriff Means served on the grand jury that indicted her. There was no jury panel for the trial -- people were rounded up off the streets. Four members of the jury had been indicted for felonies, one for murder. The trial jury foreman was a close associate of the sheriff's. The motive for the killing was supposed to be robbery but the horse trader's $600 in gold was found in his saddlebags, untouched. And Chipita would not help in her own defense.
The trial lasted the morning and the jury brought back a verdict by noon. Silvera was found guilty of second-degree murder and she was found guilty of firstdegree murder. The jury urged clemency for Chipita, but Judge Neal did not agree and ordered her to be hanged on Nov. 13. For some time she was held at Sheriff William Means's home in Meansville, where two attempts by a lynching mob were thwarted. According to legend, Chipita was kept in leg irons and chained to a wall in the court-

The Young Priest
The elderly priest, speaking to the younger priest, said, ''You had a good idea to replace the first four pews with plush bucket theater seats. It worked like a charm. The front of the church always fills first now.'' The young priest nodded, and the old priest continued, ''And you told me adding a little more beat to the music would bring young people back to church, so I supported you when you brought in that rock 'n roll gospel choir. Now our services are consistently packed to the balcony.'' ''Thank you, Father,'' answered the young priest. ''I

house. There, local children brought her candy and shucks to make cigarettes. At the time, she was described as "very old" or "about ninety," but was, in fact, in her sixties.
The trial records were burned in a fire in 1889. What little survived suggests the evidence was not carefully considered. The case was circumstantial, with no witnesses and no motive. Why Chipita would not help in her defense is a mystery. The legend holds that she saw the killer that night -- and recognized him as her long-lost son.
It was a bad day's work. It looks now like Chipita was found guilty based on who she was, rather than what she did. Had she not been a "Mexican" (the term used for her at the time), there would not have been enough evidence to indict, much less convict. The Corpus Christi paper, The Ranchero, expressed the sentiment: "Mexicans should not have the same rights in this state as Americans." It complimented the judge and jury for finding Chipita guilty and said, "We are decidedly pleased with our neighbors in San Patricio." But in San Patricio, they weren't much pleased with themselves. Prominent citizens urged the sheriff not to carry out the sentence and, the day before the hanging, he left town, leaving the hangman to do the job alone. Although Rodriguez maintained her innocence, she refused to testify in her defense and remained silent throughout the trial, perhaps, some have speculated, to protect her guilty son. Lore says that resident Kate McCumber drove off hangman John Gilpin when he came for her wagon to transport Chipita to the hanging tree. Gilpin finally ignored McCumber and confiscated the wagon.
Chipita Rodriguez has become a folk legend, and since the 1930s, there have been numerous alleged sightings of her ghost along the Aransas River where she was hanged.
Rodriguez has been the subject of numerous books and newspaper articles. Rachel Bluntzer Hebert’s epic-length poem “Shadows on the Nueces” and Teresa Palomo Acosta’s poem “Chipita” both portray Rodriguez as a heroine.
In 1993, the University of Texas music department performed the opera, "Chipita Rodriguez," composed by Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi professor Lawrence Weiner. In 2010 a screenplay was written by Del Mar College and Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi student screenwriter Cary Cadena.
For many years Chipita was considered to be the only woman legally hanged in Texas. In fact, Jane Elkins, a slave convicted of murder, was hanged on May 27, 1853, in Dallas. She was the first woman legally hanged in the state. Chipita was the last woman executed in Texas before Karla Faye Tucker (preceeding her by over 130 years).

The court records, except for a week of transcripts, were burned in a courthouse fire or lost in a flood, and many discrepancies exist in trial accounts. Chipita had little in the way of defense counsel, and her sole defense was the words "not guilty." There was no appeal or motion in arrest of judgment, and though some talk of a retrial may have occurred, none took place. Some sources indicate she may have been involved in gathering information to influence the state's decision about which side to take in the Civil War and was framed as a political act.
In 1985 state senator Carlos Truan of Corpus Christi asked the Texas legislature to absolve Chipita Rodríguez of murder. The Sixty-ninth Legislature passed the resolution, and it was signed by Governor Mark White on June 13, 1985. Sources:

''All of these ideas have been well and good,'' said the elderly priest, ''But I'm afraid you've gone too far with the drive-thru confessional.'' ''But, Father,'' protested the young priest, ''my confessions and the donations have nearly doubled since I began that!''
Josepha “Chipita” Rodriguez was born December 30, 1799. She was executed on November 13, 1863. Most of her story verges on end; facts surrounding arrest, trial, and execution scant, and many aspects of story cannot be verified.

After two weeks of searching, some off-road travelers discovered the couple that had been missing since leaving the Valley View Casino. The couple, from Anaheim, had visited the casino and had planned on driving to La Quinta, near Palm Springs, for a Mother’s Day celebration. They never arrived. Sheriff’s Lt. Ken Nelson reported the couple had tried to find a short cut and had gotten lost.
Cecil Knudson, 79, was found dead; Dianna Bedwell, 68, survived, but was dehydrated and weak when found. She had survived by sipping on rain water and what little food had been left in the car. Both Knudson and Bedwell were diabetics.
They were found near a Boy Scout camp in Warner Springs about 2:40 p.m. The area is also near near the Schoepe Scout Reservation at Lost Valley on Chihuahua Valley Road. Bedwell, who was conscious when she was found, was taken to the hospital for treatment of dehydration.

Being a veteran, I decided to stop by and enjoy a steak. (Besides, the quickest way to get any journalist to cover an event is to offer free food. Works almost every time!)
We got there a bit late but still had a couple steaks ready and waiting for us. Grilled to perfection and we had a chance to visit with Pastor Miller, his wife, Candy, sons Cheyenne and Cody (who is the best dadgummed piano player you ever did hear!)
What’s Wrong with NCTD? More Deficiencies Found, for Third Year in a Row
Almost twice as many deficiencies were found during a recent federal review of the North County Transit District as were found nearly three years ago in a similar review.
Federal Transit Administration auditors found more deficiencies with the agency’s regulatory compliance each time they conducted a review; a trend that is causing concern. In 2009 the review turned up one problem. In 2012, there were seven. This year, there were 13 deficiencies, including problems with unspent grant funds and unexplained contract delays. The executive director of NCTD, Matthew Tucker, who was hired in late 2008, said the review identified some issues that the agency was already aware of and is working to rectify. The agency hired, and has paid a consultant company $200,635 to analyze areas in which the district needed to improve. The consultant’s report was completed in late 2014.
Tucker said the agency has
begun to change policies and procedures cited in the report.
Since the review was completed in March, NCTD has submitted updated information on the delayed projects and a schedule for each project. In all, the feds found deficiencies in three areas of the 17 that were reviewed. NCTD has taken steps to resolve 5 of the 13 deficiencies that were noted, and has until July 31 to provide documentation that the other problems have been corrected, Tucker said.
The Metropolitan Transit System in San Diego also goes through the same audit. This year it received a clean report, the third review in a row that found no deficiencies. Sharks Observed in Ocean: Lifeguards on the Lookout

Editor’s Note: In fairness, I did speak with Fire Chief Mike Lowry. He essentially confirmed the protocols for dispatching of an ambulance and EMT team included checking vitals, making an evaluation and recommendation. The patient retains the right to be transported, or not.
He also talked to the Captain who responded and the Captain claims I refused to be evaluated (not true) and that I felt fine (True. Slightly dizzy and very concerned about my high blood sugars. But no pain or major discomfort. Why else would I agreed to have them come to the house if I were not concerned about the high blood sugars?) Chief Lowry was very gentlemanly and polite. He was offered the opportunity to respond within The Paper but, thus far, has declined to accept the invitation.) Hi,

The dispatcher said that they would check your symptom and transport if necessary and you agreed. The fire captain said they don't check symptom or treat on the scene but was there to transport you to the hospital. The crucial point was that the EMT only check symptoms in a medical emergency.

An Improving Budget Situation
On May 14 Governor Brown released his $115.3 billion “May Revise,” a budget revision based on updated revenue projections. Fortunately, California’s financial picture has brightened, with revenue growth since June 2014, more than $14 billion over expectations.
Protecting California’s K-12 and higher education system remains a top priority for me, and I am pleased the improving financial situation will allow more funding to support our schools, colleges and universities. In a positive move, additional funding for the UC system will only be made available if tuition is frozen, keeping a promise made to voters when Proposition 30 passed in 2012. With California mired in a long drought, the budget sets aside $2.2 billion for drought-related programs. Water infrastructure projects, including desalination, and water recycling plants will receive millions in additional revenue. Even so, legislators and the Governor

must work together to ensure these projects are fast-tracked.
While the operating budget is balanced, California still faces billions in unfunded liabilities. The recovery remains precarious and we still have one of the nation’s highest unemployment rates. The slightest economic hiccup will generate decreasing revenues, more spending and a return to double-digit deficits. With these concerns in mind, the May Revise continues to build the state’s “Rainy Day Fund,” a necessary precaution in these uncertain times. As a hedge against future economic downturns, that reserve must grow and remain secure.
With its focus on schools, higher education and water infrastructure, the “May Revise” provides a constructive blueprint for the coming fiscal year. I am optimistic about prospects for passage of a balanced budget by the June 15 deadline.

Memorial Day by Claudia Aragon
Just want to set the record straight on the Original Decoration Day. The Ladies Memorial Association of Columbus Georgia, passed a resolution to honor those who died for the CSA in the Spring of 1866 , led by Mrs Elizabeth Rutherford Ellis. Union General John A. Logan, Commander in Chief of Union Civil War Veterans launched their observance in 1868 after seeing examples of people in the South perpetuating the memory of friends who had died for a cause they thought just and right. So it was two years later that Northerns participated. Also their were no Muslims involved in this cause for freedom as Barack Obama believes. He lied. My family has been Americans since 1700 and participated in every event in the Country. Lets get the History right and inform Ms Aragon.

Grant became an unlikely hero. Up until the Civil War, he had failed at nearly everything he tried in civilian life. Grant graduated in 1843 from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and quit after serving in the Mexican-American War. When the Civil War began in 1861, he rejoined the U.S. Army. Born Hiram Ulysses Grant on April 27, 1822, in Pleasant Point, Ohio, he rose through the Army ranks and into the White House as the 18th President of the United States, twice elected (1869-77).
By 8:15 a.m the following morning, the spill had been stopped.
The sewage entered a drainage channel that leads to the San Luis Rey River. Warning signs were posted along the river asking anyone to avoid contact with the water.
the editor realized that what he was reading was impossible! They put in a correction the next day.
Ullysses S. Grant – Hero of the Civil War
Ulysses S. Grant is considered the hero of the Civil War because his Union Troops outmaneuvered the Southern forces, resulting in a final victory. Grant was known for his cigarsmoking and whiskey-drinking habits. When his heavy drinking was brought to the attention of President Abraham Lincoln, he replied: “Find out what kind he (Grant) drinks and send each one of my generals a case.” Lincoln had been plagued with a series of top commanders who wouldn’t pursue the enemy on a consistent basis.
His successful campaign in the West, primarily winning the Battle of Shiloh and gaining Union control of the Mississippi in the victory at Vicksburg, divided the Confederacy in half. For that feat, Lincoln finally had found a leader who would fight and appointed Grant Army Commanding General. From that point on, he worked closely with Lincoln to lead the Union Army to victory. In 1864, Grant confronted Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee in a series of bloody battles, trapping Lee's army in Richmond. Grant coordinated a series of devastating campaigns in other theaters,

including Gen. William T. Sherman’s devastating march through Georgia.
On April 9, 1865, Lee's surrender to Grant at Appomattox ended the war. Grant's military genius, and his strategies are featured in military history textbooks, but a minority of historians contend they won by overwhelming force rather than superior strategy. As far as Lincoln was concerned, Grant was successful, no matter how he did it.
After the War, Grant led the Army's supervision of “Reconstruction” of the former Confederate states. Elected president as a Republican in 1868 and reelected in 1872, Grant stabilized the nation; he prosecuted the Ku Klux Klan, and enforced civil and voting rights laws. After the disenfranchisement of some former Confederates, the Republicans gained majorities and African-Americans were elected to Congress and a number of important state offices.
In his second term, the Republican coalitions in the South splintered and were defeated one by one as conservative whites regained control
using coercion and violence. His presidency often came under criticism for tolerating corruption and in his second term leading the nation into a severe economic depression. Grant's Indian policy initially reduced frontier violence, but is remembered for the Great Sioux War of 1876, where Lt. Col. George Custer and his 7th Cavalry regiment were killed at the Battle of the Little Bighorn.
In 1880, Grant was unsuccessful in obtaining the nomination for a third term. Facing severe investment reversals and dying of throat cancer, he completed his memoirs, which proved a major critical and financial success. Mark Twain published Grant’s best-selling autobiography, sold one copy at-a-time, “door-to-door” as there were few bookstores in those days). Grant’s death in 1885 prompted an outpouring of national unity, however, historians' evaluations of Grant’s presidency were negative until the 1980s. They continue to take a dim view of Grant’s economic mismanagement, despite his concern for Native Americans and enforcement of civil and voting rights.
Grant died July 23, 1885. His body was entombed in New York’s Riverside Park. His
Escondido, CA—In a 2002 issue of Neurosurgical Focus, a peerreviewed article was published by a Dr. Michael D. Martin, MD et al. in which the third sentence states: “The disc itself is active tissue that contains significant mechanisms for self-repair.” That article was published by a neurosurgeon and written directly for neurosurgeons.
“The Disc Itself Is Active Tissue...”
So what does that really mean to us? It tells us that the disc itself does have a God-given ability to heal and repair if provided the proper mechanisms for self-healing. There is a specific mechanism inherent in each of the spinal discs called the “pump mechanism of disc nutri-tion” (see Fig 1). When this mechanism is not working properly, the spinal discs will begin to die causing bulges, herniations, and eventually spinal stenosis.
The spinal disc is one of the very few tissues in the body that does not have a direct blood supply for circulation. The only way that the disc gets the circulation of water, oxygen and nutrients for self-repair is via this specific disc pump mechanism. What happens when you decrease cir-culation in any type of tissue, whether it be animal tissue, plant tissue or human tissue? Exactly, it begins to become weak and begins to degenerate.
Symptoms Are NOT The Problem
Now the symptoms of pain, numbness,
funeral drew 1.5 million in attendance. Ceremonies were held in other major cities and those who eulogized Grant compared him to George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Twelve years later his body was moved to the General Grant National Memorial, also known as "Grant's Tomb," which is the largest mausoleum in North America. Today, Grant is a hero in most Civil War history books and his portrait graces the $50 bill.

brown leaves are the plant’s problem? Of course not, the leaves turning brown is just a condition that is telling you that there is something wrong with the plant. The plant is unhealthy and needs water and nutrients. You could spray paint the leaves green but it just covers up the condition. The underlying problem still exists and will continue to produce brown leaves until you fix the actual problem. and tingling that most experience with bulging, herniated or degenerative discs are NOT the problem. The definition of a symptom: “something that indicates the existence of something else.” It is just like the dashboard of your car telling you that something is wrong (brake lights out, engine needs checked, overheating, etc.) Those lights that appear in your car dash are NOT the problem. You can remove the lights surgically or put a piece of duct tape over the lights but the problem will NOT be fixed...the problem is still present.

He will sit down with you and go over your condition with you in complete detail. You will know exactly what is causing all your pain (or other symptoms).
In your spine, when the pump mechanism of disc nutrition fails, the disc will begin to de-generate and become weak. This weakness in the disc is what produces the bulging, herniated, and degenerative discs.
The treatment that is provided at Dr. Heilman’s Spine and Neuropathy Care Center in Escondido is revolutionary and is specifically designed to artificially re-create the pump mechanism in the discs which allows the spinal discs to heal and repair. The best part of the treatment is that it uses no drugs, no injections, and no surgery. Plus it’s painless and many patients relax and fall asleep while undergoing the treatment. The amount of treatment needed to allow the discs to heal and repair varies from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and orthopedic evaluation. We do NOT accept everyone for treatment and will let you know if we can accept your case for treatment.

Pastor Tom Fry, Retired, Church of the Nazarene The Pause That Refreshes
Long before advertisers tried to convince us the Coca Cola would make us happy, even before it was The Real Thing, it was “The Pause that Refreshes.” And long before Coca Cola, God thought of the pause that refreshes and he spread it across the Bible, especially in the book of Psalms.
I’ve been leading a group study of Psalms for some time and we keep coming across this word, “selah” at the end of some of the verses in the Psalms. Sometimes just once in Psalm, sometimes more often. It isn’t really part of the text, and yet it is. It wasn’t
Selah is a Hebrew word and it appears in English Bibles in Arabic letter, but untranslated. It means to pause. To stop reading . To lay aside the book for a moment. And to think about what you’ve just read. Maybe you’ve done that with a great poem, or a letter from a loved one. Read. Paused. Thought. Meditated, really. And let what you have just read soak into your mind and, usually, your heart.
Life often needs a Selah. A pause that refreshes. We take in so much in life that it is often difficult to process it all, to enjoy it all. For some of us life is a lot like that hot dog eating contest on Coney Island. We are stuffing our lives full of, well, stuff so fast that we have no time to enjoy it, no opportunity to distinguish one flavor from another. And we fear that if we pause, even for a second, life will pass us by, another contestant will push past us and we will lose the contest. Life needs pauses. Pauses to refresh, even regroup. Pauses to appreciate and reflect. Pauses to simply enjoy the moment, if even for a moment. Life needs a Selah.

How does Apple do it?
Last year Apple made 40 billion dollars profit on 200 billion in sales. In the first half of Apple’s 2015 fiscal year their profits were $32 billion on $133 billion sales. No other American company even comes close. Yet Apple is not a technological innovator or even a manufacturer. Basically they’re a marketing company. Apple’s products haven’t been technology leaders since the early 1980s and they don’t develop their technology, they buy it, often from competitors. Apple’s mainstream products are suffering from loss of market share (iPhones) or shrinking sales (iPads and Macs). What the heck is going on? Over the years Apple’s fortunes have been up and down like a toilet seat. Recently Apple has benefited from a perfect storm of circumstance. Call it Steve Jobs brilliant strategy or call it dumb luck
The World of...
Patrick "Skip" Jacovino Integrity Mortgage Group Senior Mortgage Consultant
This week we will be looking at the meaning of some commonly used terms in the mortgage world that can sometimes seem mysterious to someone who doesn’t work in the mortgage industry. If you are already familiar with these terms, congratulations! You have a good knowledge of mortgages. “Equity”: This is the dollar difference between what is “owed” on a home (or property) and what the property value actually is. For
but the truth is that Apple’s success today is largely due to Steve Jobs elitist personality and the creation of the Apple “Fanbois” cult. No company in the computer/communications industry has anything like the “Apple Fanbois.” They are without a doubt Apples greatest strength. The cult was born in the early 1980s and marks its rise to prominence from that iconic one minute Apple commercial at the 1984 Super Bowl. (Check it out on the WWW “1984 Apple Super Bowl ad”)
Apple fired Steve Jobs in 1995 but Apple’s marketing strategy had been carved in stone. No longer would they try to compete head to head with computer technology. Instead they would target a niche market based on psychology. Their appeal would be aimed at those who felt different, special, a cut above the hoi paloi. Apple sought to fill an emotional need for those who felt the need to be part of something special. The strategy was brilliant. Brand loyalty built on technology is fleeting but an emotional commitment is forever. Though the “fanbois” cult has never represented more than a single digit percentage of computer users, their influence far outweigh their numbers. They are passionate missionaries for Apple and blindly loyal. They don’t question Apple’s technology or price. When Apple releases a new product they happily queue up to buy it, patiently enduring new product bugs and deficiencies, secure in the knowledge that they
example, if Joe owes $200K on his home and the home is worth $350K, he has $150K in equity.
This leads us to our next term … “Loan-to-Value Ratio”: This is the equity in a home shown as a percentage. It is calculated by dividing the amount owed on a home by the value of the home. Joe’s example would be 200K owed divided by 350K value which gives us .57 (or 57%)…this is a low ratio, which is good. Lenders use this ratio to determine whether or not a client has enough equity to qualify for a mortgage loan. Most lenders want to see a loan-to value ratio of 80% or less (although many programs allow for much less equity such as VA and FHA loans) “Debt to Income Ratio”: This is another qualifying tool that lenders use. It is calculated by taking a client’s monthly expenses that appear on their credit report and dividing the total by their monthly gross income (income before tax withholding). For example, Joe has mortgage and credit expenses of $2500 per month and makes $6000 a month (before taxes). His ratio is 2500 divided by 6000= .41 or 41%. Most lenders like a ratio of 45% or less to qualify.
“FICO score”: This is a credit score that lenders use to determine credit-worthiness. There are actually three major companies that provide these scores (Experian, Equifax, and Transunion). The scores range from 300-850. The higher the score the better. Most people should strive to have a score above 740. Making timely
are a part of something bigger and more important than technological excellence.
Another major factor in Apple’s success is that they control and reap the profit from the hardware, operating systems, content and applications employed in the products they sell. Contrast that with their competitors in PCs and mobile products. HP or Samsung can make money on the computer or smart phone but they must rely on Microsoft or Google for the operating system and other companies own and profit from the content and applications used by their products. Apple products use the same hardware technology as their
payments on credit accounts and keeping credit card balances low helps raise scores.
“APR vs Interest Rate”: I could write an entire column on the difference. The interest rate is the contract rate on a mortgage. The APR is a term coined by the government to let clients know when they are financing closing costs on a loan. Give me a call or shoot me an email if you would like a detailed explanation. I enjoy talking about it! Good Faith Estimate: This is a document a lender must give a client within 3 days of a mortgage application. It outlines the loan amount, the rate, the payment, closing costs (if any) ... and also if the rate is locked in or not. A very
competition. Apple products roll off the Foxconn assembly line in China beside Dell, HP and other “non-manufacturers.” Apple is unique only in the exterior design and the use of the iOS (operating system). Virtually all the rest of the smart phones and tablets use the “Android” OS and PC’s use “Windows.” That means that while the rest of the industry competes among themselves with “me too” technology, Apple stands alone as an alternative.
How does Apple blend the three factors, small but passionate “fanbois” cult, unique operating system (iOS) and total control over its products to create its present success and can it last? Tune in next week for the conclusion.
Rate Lock: Very important. This secures your rate for the time it takes to process a mortgage loan. Always make sure your rate is locked when working with a lender. And know how long the rate lock is for. They range from 15 days to 90 days (in general). The longer the lock period, the more protection you have against rate fluctuations in the market. There are many terms that I did not go over due to space and some that I just scratched the surface. If there is anything you would like to know, please email or call me direct. I am always happy to talk about mortgage loans and there is never a cost or obligation to speak with me. Have a great week!

California law provids that, for purposes of division of property upon dissolution of a marriage or domestic partnership or upon legal separation, property acquired by the parties during marriage or domestic partnership in joint form is presumed to be community property. If either party to this action should die before the jointly held community property is divided, the language in the deed that characterizes how title is held (i.e., joint tenancy, tenants in common, or community property) will be controlling, and not the community property presumption. You should consult your attorney if you want the community property presumption to be written into the property.
