Loveland event makes resources available to homeowners at risk of foreclosure - 11/23/08 10:33 AM
About six months ago, Carrie Kepler and her husband realized they were going to lose their home. They no longer were able to afford the payments on the house they purchased in Wellington five years ago with an adjustable-rate mortgage. And someone they paid to help them turned out to be a fraud. They were finding they couldn’t both pay the mortgage and feed and clothe themselves and their two children. “We drowned faster than we thought we would,” Kepler said. “It’s awful.” But Saturday morning Kepler, with some prodding from her father-in-law, Ray Kepler, visited a Foreclosure Prevention Fair at (0 comments)

Loveland watches building, taxes as indicators - 11/16/08 09:16 AM
Along with most people nationwide, officials in the city of Loveland are preparing to respond to a major economic slowdown. “The risk is certainly higher on the downside than it was (when the budget was being prepared six months ago),” said city of Loveland finance manager Alan Krcmarik. “All of the managers are planning on ways to save.” But even in the face of near-stagnant construction and lower-than-expected sales tax revenue, the city and the region remain optimistic that Northern Colorado will ride out this storm.
