Paving Project - Highway 18 Running Springs to Big Bear Highway 18 from Running Springs to Big Bear is scheduled for repaving September-October 2015. Residents have been requesting this work for several years due to the condition of the road. With the possible El Nino season ahead of us, it's good news for locals.Work will begin around September 9 near Big Bear and then move south, completely mid-October at the junction of Highway 18 and 138 in Crestline. In addition to a fresh coat, the work will include a "recessed reflective limit line" - the fog line. This material has been proven to stand up well to snow and can't be damaged by snow plows.For more information: click here for scheduled work schedules.

Landmark Decision- Same Sex Marriages Now Legal in US & Real Estate News Today was a historic day in the United States when the Supreme Court ruled that Same-Sex Marriage was legal. This has been a long battle and finally the states must adhere to the Supreme Court ruling. Many states that had banned this practice, this morning had started issuing marriage licenses to same sex couples.  How will this affect real estate? I see it as a very positive situation because so many couples have not been able to enjoy the perks given by government regulations to hedrosexual couples for many years. Now more couples will be able to get married, set up house and probably want to buy their dream home together. Other roadblocks will be torn down such as State and Federal taxes, Inheritence regulations...

Flying Drone Causes All the Fire Fighting Planes Grounded During Major Fire in Big Bear Area Photo taken by CAL Fire.  Firefighters were faced with a major challenge on the Lake Fire in San Bernardino County yesterday as a hobby drone, (UAS) unmanned aircraft system, was spotted in the fire area where air tankers were flying. Just before 6 p.m. in the Onyx Summit area an air tanker spotted the drone in the area where the firefighting aircraft were working. This fire is only 21% contained.   Firefighters were forced to ground all firefighting aircraft until they could find the operator and get the drone out of the area. An unauthorized drone is a major safety hazard for a pilot, as a collision could easily result in major damage, injuries to the pilot on board as well as firefighters bel...

2015 ASICS 30th LA Marathon was Fun even with Record Heat From the Stadium to the Sea The 2015 ASICS LA Marathon had record heat yesterday but 22,333 runners came in having fun regardless. They started at Dodger's Stadium in Los Angeles and finished at the Santa Monica shore. This is a newer route as the LA Marathon (when I used to run it) was pretty much a loop in LA.  They called this a 'run within a run' as the top USA runners were qualifying for the Boston Marathon and for the USATF Championship which had a monetary prize 1-15th place for males and females.  RESULTS: Male Runners 1. Daniel Limo- Kenya 2. Lani Rutto- Kenya 3. Jared Ward- USA *USA Male runners placed #3, and #6-10. Female Runners 1. Olga Kimaiyo- Kenya 2. Natalya Puchkova- Russsia 3.

Philadelphia Museum of Art has the Famous Rocky Steps Recently I was in Philadelphia, PA and we stopped at the Museum of Art which is a very impressive building and has about 200 steps (approx) going up to the top to enter the museum.  2600 Bejamin Franklin Parkway, Philadelphia PA 19130 (215) 763-8100  This building sits on the top of the Bejamin Franklin Parkway and is the third largest museum in the United States. But what else is this buildings claim to fame you ask? It is the steps that the fictional character "Rocky Balboa" ran up in his movie played by the imfamous Sylvester Stallone. In 1980, Stallone had a life size bronze statue placed at the bottom of the steps.  Philadelphia is a fantastic city and has so much to see. I love to go there at least once or twice a year and go s...

Buyers Beware of Delays in the Closing of Your Loan Home buyers may face an unexpected delay or cancellation of their loan if subsequent financial activity raises any red flags for lenders, especially since Fannie Mae now requires a borrower’s credit to be rechecked right before closing a mortgage.  Borrowers are advised to keep their credit picture in the clear by refraining from any purchases that may be seen as a liability from the lender’s view. For example, the sudden addition of a $3,000 balance to a new credit card account for an item you’re planning to enjoy in your new home may cause the lender to send back the loan to underwriting in order for the calculations to be redone, which could result in a higher interest rate.   Borrowers need to check with their loan officer before a...

Smokey the Bear's is Celebrating his 70th Birthday today on August 9 Smokey Bear was created in 1944 because of fears of  forest fires while most U.S. firefighters were in battle overseas. When the war ended, Smokey stuck around - and he's now at the center of the longest-running public service announcement campaign in U.S. history. Research shows he is known by 96 percent of American adults and ranks near Mickey Mouse and Santa Claus for name recognition. His creation was a collaboration of the U.S. Forest Service, the National Association of State Foresters and the Ad Council. In 1950, a bear cub was burned in a fire and was nursed back to health and kept at the National Zoo in Washington D.C. until his death in 1976. They called this bear "Smokey Bear". Smokey is all over the social ...
