Small businesses should ditch the landlord and buy their freehold if they want to save money, according to property website [http://www.publicangel.com].It said that many companies could boost their long-term profitability by buying their commercial property instead of renting it.Recent changes in the commercial mortgage market mean many businesses that currently rent can now get up to 100% mortgages and, in most cases, will end up paying the same monthly amount.Public Angel’s director Nilesh Gohil said: “In years gone by, you could have approached a high street bank for a commercial property mortgage, but without a perfect track record and a hefty deposit you’d have been turned away. These days there are many more lenders available, who are willing to lend 100% of the price of the freehold, secured on the property itself – for bakers with retail premises, this is particularly relevant.”
A letter from Elkhart County elected officials WhatsApp CoronavirusIndianaLocalNews Facebook Twitter By 95.3 MNC – March 27, 2020 1 346 Google+ Pinterest Twitter Google+ Previous articleVolunteers needed for Elkhart County COVID-19 Information LineNext articleIndiana officials considering only mail-in vote for primary 95.3 MNCNews/Talk 95.3 Michiana’s News Channel is your breaking news and weather station for northern Indiana and southwestern Michigan. Facebook WhatsApp (Photo supplied) Dear Community of Elkhart County,The last two weeks, since the World Health Organization declared the new coronavirus outbreak a pandemic, Elkhart County and the rest of the State of Indiana has had to move quickly to learn as much as we could about the impact to our community and prepare for a possible local outbreak.We have worked hard together to keep each other informed and make adjustments to protect our communities. Many other organizations that work closely with local government have greatly stepped in this time of uncertainty. Your health and wellbeing is of greatest importance to us.Of note was the response of all the schools in Elkhart County, which made the difficult decision to close down even before the statewide school closure order was given. The schools acted out of informed precaution and should be commended for not only leading the way in preventing exposure, but also for their remarkable efforts to make sure students continue to receive education and meals in this time of crisis.We would like to continue offering our support to Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb and his staff as we all continue to learn about what we are dealing with. We also would like to thank the businesses, organizations, churches and individuals throughout Elkhart County for complying with the governor’s executive order to temporarily close down and stay home.The governor’s executive order went into effect March 25, and requires of all Indiana residents to practice social distancing by staying home, except for matters of health and safety, until 11:59 p.m. April 6. These measures are in place to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in our state.The pace in our community has slowed significantly, showing that many had complied with the Governor’s order to stay home. This is what we need to be doing if we want to stay ahead of the virus.Closing down businesses will not come without an economic cost, but we need to look at the health and safety of the people on our community as top priority. The sooner we adhere to the order, the more effectively we mitigate the spread of the infection and the faster our economy will recover.Just like those businesses that have voluntarily complied with the governor’s order by opting to close to mitigate the viral spread, we recognize how important it is for those providing essential services to our community continue to do so: hospitals and healthcare facilities, doctors’ offices, mail services, gas stations, grocery stores and local government staff, among others. Those businesses must remember to continue making necessary adjustments at their workplaces to have social distancing, cleaned and disinfected work surfaces and allowing employees to wash their hands with soap and water and to stay home if sick.Of our residents, we ask they stay as healthy as possible so if they encounter a virus, their body’s immune system is primed to defend them from illness. Eat 5-9 servings of fruits and vegetables a day, exercise regularly, get 7 to 9 hours of sleep and try to manage stress as best you can.The Indiana Department of Homeland Security has additional information of what an essential service in the context of this health crisis is through their list of frequently asked questions, which can be found here: in.gov/dhs/4434.htm. Businesses in need of further guidance can call the Critical Industries Hotline at 877.820.0890 or email [email protected],Commissioner Frank LuccheseCommissioner Suzanne WeirickCommissioner Mike YoderMayor Phil JenkinsMayor Rod RobersonMayor Jeremy Stutsman Pinterest

Get stoked for what’s to come with their timeless debut album, Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not: It’s been three years since we’ve heard from the Arctic Monkeys. After touring in support of their fifth studio LP AM in 2013, the band members redirected their focuses to side-projects. But now, the British rockers have shared the news that they are indeed writing a new album. While only in the beginning processes, this news is very exciting as the band returns home to Sheffield, England to write the new album.According to a tweet from BBC’s Shamir Masri, “Alex Turner [said] during an interview for BBC Sheffield [that] they are coming back to Sheffield to pen a new album… It IS happening!” While the process might be slow, it’s definitely in the works — as the tweets below indicate. The boys are back in town!Arctic Monkeys back in Sheffield.

Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. may be most associated with his efforts to desegregate the South, but the minister also had a valuable and lasting relationship with New England, and with Harvard.Before his turn as a Boston University graduate student, King attended classes as a special student at Harvard in 1952 and 1953. Throughout the 1960s, King returned to Harvard time and again to lecture, including a memorable talk after being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. That visit on Jan. 10, 1965, happened mere months before he led the now-famous protest marches through Selma, Ala.Soundbytes: Martin Luther King Jr., 1962Listen to a clip from the speech delivered at Harvard Law School in 1962 by Martin Luther King Jr.King cautioned against hatred and revenge, despite the violent cauldron of political fervor stirred by opponents of the Civil Rights Movement. “The philosophy of an eye for an eye,” he said, “results in everyone being blind.” Months later, King led a procession of thousands from Roxbury to Boston Common, his first march outside the South.In honor of his national day of remembrance, below is a roundup of Gazette stories on King’s history at Harvard, including testimonials from those who knew him.On Jan. 16, Harvard will celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. at 7:30 p.m. in Sanders Theatre with “Joyful Noise,” a concert featuring the Harlem Gospel Choir.On Jan. 17, the Memorial Church hosts a commemoration of King at 11 a.m. with speaker Lawrence E. Carter, professor of religion and dean of the Martin Luther King Jr. International Chapel, Morehouse College. When King came to HarvardHe returned often during the campaign for Civil Rights, as guest preacher. He attended classes as a special student in 1952 and 1953, taking philosophy courses on Plato and on Alfred North Whitehead, earning a B and an A-, respectively. King also was a guest preacher at Harvard’s Memorial Church during the 1959-1960 school year, the first in a string of visits to the University’s chief pulpit.Professor Harvey Cox (pictured) first met Martin Luther King Jr. in the late 1950s. “It turned out that we were born the same year, we were both Baptist ministers, we both had a strong interest in the theologian Paul Tillich,” Cox recalled. “So we formed a kind of a friendship that continued.” In the 1960s, when Cox was a Harvard doctoral student, King asked him to create a Boston branch of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. File photo by Stephanie Mitchell/Harvard Staff PhotographerMy memories of Dr. KingHarvard Professor Harvey Cox reflects on his friendship with King. Cox was a Harvard doctoral student in the early 1960s when King called and asked him to help create a Boston branch of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the influential Civil Rights organization that King helped found in 1957. On Aug. 28, 1963, the March on Washington brought more than 200,000 people to the Lincoln Memorial. It was there that Martin Luther King Jr. (front row, second from left) delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech. Rowland Scherman/U.S. Information AgencyThe dream, 50 years laterThose with Harvard ties reflect on the bittersweet legacy of the March on Washington. On Aug. 28, 2013, thousands joined President Obama at the Lincoln Memorial to mark the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington and celebrate a powerful moment in the Civil Rights Movement.“It was a moral imperative. I could do more than hope; I could act. I did not have to await a tidal wave; I could be part of it,” said Faust, pictured here in Birmingham, Ala., in 1964.Remembering, and returning to, SelmaHarvard President Drew Faust delivered Morning Prayers on March 6, 2015, offering those gathered in Appleton Chapel for the solemn service a deeply personal reflection on her experience with the Civil Rights Movement 50 years before.This contact sheet captures Martin Luther King Jr.’s January 1965 visit to the Memorial Church to deliver a speech. Courtesy of Harvard University Archives/UAV 605 V 127‘The weapon of love’The man who literally wrote the book on King’s preaching talked about the Civil Rights leader at Memorial Church on Jan. 19, 2014. Richard Lischer of Duke Divinity School is a professor of preaching and onetime Lutheran pastor.“The popular perception is that these streets are not worthy of King’s name. They’re segregated, they’re poor, there’s vacant property everywhere,” said Harvard’s Daniel D’Oca of the American streets named to honor the slain Civil Rights icon.
