Not Again?

Problem

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory until 12:00 PM on Sunday, 2/12. Freezing rain and an inch of snow are expected with up to a few hundredths of an inch of ice.

New Yorkers are advised to exercise caution when driving, walking, or biking, and allow for additional travel time as roads may be slippery. Residents should also check on their neighbors, friends, and relatives, especially the elderly and those with disabilities, and access and functional needs during periods of extreme cold.

GOP RULES US

News

Republicans now control of The Senate and The US House of Representatives in a wave of Election Day wins which serve as a repudiation of President Barack Obama's second-term policies and put a series of Democratic states under control of new Republican governors.

Republicans won formerly Democratic Senate seats in seven states, including Arkansas, Montana, South Dakota, West Virginia, Iowa, Colorado and North Carolina.

Republicans scored a net gain of six seats to win the majority for the first time since 2006.

OBAMACARE DEADLINE

News

This just in... Administration Extends Deadline for Obamacare Sign-Up Through Christmas for most Americans to be able to qualify for ObamaCare insurance on Jan. 1, but a series of administration fixes and delays is turning the milestone into a day that for many Americans will underscore the uncertainty about the future of the law.

The original plan was straightforward and extremely simple. Any American who enrolled in ObamaCare by Dec. 23 and paid in full would be able to have insurance when the coverage kicks in New Year’s Day.

Good Times Rolling Over US

Problem

The real estate market used to be considered as an excellent investment opportunity to either hang on to for tears, until it was time to sell for a tidy profit, or to fix and flip.

However, an overabundance without buyers could mean the end of easy money for re-sellers as I found out recently. I recently met with a couple of professionals, who did not deliver the good news I was expecting.

Last year, flippers saw seven-figure gains within 18 months of buying their properties, according to data compiled by listings of online websites. However, the future may be uncertain.

BLESSING OF THE FLEET

News

The weather appeared as if it was heaven sent for City Island's Blessing of The Fleet. This annual event was successfully organized by members of The Power Squadron.

City Islanders joined members of the American Legion, who saluted for 77 vessels, including, sail boats, yachts and kayaks, while clergy for the local houses of worship offered their blessings. St. Mary's Star of The Sea's Father Agustus blessed the vessel Geometry as it's occupants on board were seen simultaneously making the sign of the cross. Ironically, this could be the last year this Catholic church remains open on the Island.
