TGIF Scoop

presented by Kay Baker & Associates

Hello and Welcome to the TGIF Scoop.

Full Moon Tonight…..

There is talk of a minor league baseball stadium being built on the riverfront in downtown Wilmington NC.  There has not been a baseball team in Wilmington NC since the Port City Roosters, a Southern League minor team which was a Double A affiliate of the Seattle Mariners Major Club in 1995.  Read the rest here…

This is an awesome time to consider buying a second home at the beach. To Wilmington NC home buyers this may be one of the best  home buying opportunities due to historic low interest rates, foreclosure and short sales, and the large inventory to choose from. Don’t miss out on a once in a life time chance to get a really good deal.  Rates are still under 5%.

NC Budget State Crunch 2011 | Wilmington NC real estate

The Recommended Adjustments to the 2010 – 2011 budget for North Carolina was released yesterday by Gov.  Beverly Perdue.  “Gov. Perdue’s proposed budget prepares North Carolina to take off as the economy improves by recommending strategic investments in four priority areas:

  1. creating jobs,
  2. ensuring every student graduates high school prepared for success,
  3. setting government straight and
  4. building safer and healthier communities.

These investments will bolster our state’s recovery and help ensure North Carolina emerges from this recession as the best place in the world to live and work.”    For the entire 2010 – 2011 budget recommendations read more here…  Gov. Perdue has stressed that painful cuts  will have to be made in matters of the state, but that she would like to spare laying off any teachers or teacher assistants.  There would be accountability on the part of the teachers though, or decisions would have to be made about replacements.  To see the fact sheets for some of the items listed in the budget read more here…

2012 USA Budget | Wilmington NC real estate

Need a little light reading this week? The 2012 Fiscal Budget from the Executive Office of the United States has just been released, all 216 pages.  Might take a while to read, but it might be a wise thing to.

These are some General Items that were to be noted.

“GENERAL NOTES

1. All years referenced for budget data are fiscal years unless otherwise noted. All years referenced for economic data are calendar years unless otherwise noted.

2. Detail in this document may not add to the totals due to rounding.

3. At the time of this writing, none of the full-year appropriations bills for 2011 was enacted; therefore, the programs and activities normally provided for in the full-year appropriations bills were operating under a continuing resolution (P.L. 111–242, as amended). For those programs and activities, data for the current year column (2011) in the budget

 

Appendix, and in tables that show details on discretionary spending amounts in the Analytical Perspectives volume, reflect the annualized level provided by the continuing resolution. In the main Budget volume, the Historical Tables volume, and in tables that include total discretionary spending in the Analytical Perspectives

volume, current year totals by agency and for the total Government will match the President’s 2011 Budget request. “
