Southern Ohio Bishop Thomas Breidenthal retires after 13 years leading…

first_img Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC [Episcopal News Service] Southern Ohio Bishop Thomas Breidenthal retired at the end of November after revealing to his diocese in the fall that he was in recovery for alcoholism. He preached a final sermon Nov. 29 at Christ Church Cathedral in Cincinnati.Southern Ohio Bishop Thomas Breidenthal, who retired last month, had led the diocese since 2007.Breidenthal first announced his plans to retire on Sept. 18, after undergoing treatment in a nursing facility for a debilitating infection that had impaired his ability to walk. On Oct. 23, he updated the diocese to say that he was feeling much better thanks to that treatment, but he said he had spent the past month in a residential treatment program for “a problem with alcohol.”Breidenthal, 69, had said initially he was retiring to tend to his health and focus more attention on his family, after leading the diocese for 13 years. In revealing his alcoholism, he further acknowledged “it is also time for me to give primary attention to my continuing recovery.”“This has been intense, at times painful, but ultimately spiritually restorative time for me,” he said in his Oct. 23 message to the diocese. “As anyone recovering from any kind of addiction knows, the spiritual work is never over. Recovery is a lifelong road lived one day at a time. I am blessed to engage the early steps of that journey in your midst.”Since Breidenthal’s retirement, Assisting Bishop Kenneth Price Jr. has taken over updating the diocese on pandemic precautions for worship, though it wasn’t immediately clear what leadership transition plans were underway in the diocese.“This diocese has benefited greatly from your scholarship, your knowledge of scripture, your preaching,” Price said to Breidenthal in a tribute video that was shown with the cathedral’s Nov. 29 online service. “You will long be remembered for being a very forceful bishop for us.”Breidenthal was consecrated in 2007 in Columbus as the ninth bishop of the diocese. Previously, he had served as dean of religious life at Princeton University in New Jersey. Before that, he taught ethics and theology at General Theological Seminary in New York.In the House of Bishops, Breidenthal has served as chair of that body’s Theology Committee, which in September issued a 52-page report on “White Supremacy, the Beloved Community and Learning to Listen.” He was one of four nominees for presiding bishop in 2015, the year Presiding Bishop Michael Curry was elected.“Your faithfulness, your leadership, your teaching have enriched our lives,” the Rev. John Johanssen, canon to the ordinary, said in the tribute video. “We wish you a rich and wonderful retirement, with good health and much joy.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Photo by Cristian ArguetaSotoTCU assistant coach Scott Cross is heading to Troy University to become the head men’s basketball coach, Jeremy McClain, senior vice chancellor for athletics, announced Tuesday.“I’m forever indebted to Coach Dixon for giving me the opportunity to be a part of his staff and I’m fired up to take the things I’ve learned during my time at TCU and put them to work in my next job,” Cross said. “Even though I won’t be a part of the the Horned Frog program next season, I’ll remain one of TCU’s biggest fans and try to catch as many games as I can on TV.”All assistant coaches will be given the day off tomorrow, which Cross said he will use to fly out to Alabama for his introductory presser Thursday. However, he made clear that he will make his way back to Fort Worth to be with the Horned Frogs through the conclusion of the season.“This program gave me a chance to get back on my feet, and I came to TCU to help win championships, so I’ll be with the team through their run in New York if we defeat Creighton tonight,” he said.Cross is in his first season on Jamie Dixon’s staff at TCU after being fired from his alma mater as UT-Arlington’s all-time winningest coach. He went 225-161 in 12 seasons at in Arlington, leading the program to its first NCAA Tournament appearance in 2008. Despite his new job requiring the uprooting of his family, something he appreciated not having to do when making the transition from UTA to TCU, he said it still allows him to be closer to his family.“Remaining in our house in Mansfield while working at TCU gives me a 40 to 45-minute commute, but in Troy we’ll get a house super close to campus, which will give me the flexibility to spend more time with my kids since I’ll have a significantly shorter drive to work.”Cross will replace Phil Cunningham at Troy. Troy is coming off consecutive losing seasons, although Cunningham led the program to the 2017 NCAA Tournament.Even though Cross is leaving TCU, he said he’ll take some of Jamie Dixon’s defining qualities with him to Troy.“I’ve marveled at watching the way he prepares for opponents and the consistent drilling of offensive fundamentals as well as the intensity in which he makes everyone around him believe that the goals set in front of us are attainable,” Cross said. “The preparation is probably one of the things that stands out the most about Coach Dixon.”With Cross not returning next season, Dixon has two assistant coaching vacancies on his staff this offseason. Corey Barker was fired by the university after being linked to the FBI college basketball corruption case. Dixon lauded his assistant for earning another shot as head coach since he looks to hire assistants who are goal-driven. “Excited for Scott Cross to get excited to coach at Troy, and it shows that TCU gets a lot of respect to have two TCU guys get Division I jobs,” Dixon said. “I tell assistants that I want them to get head-coaching jobs, so I think that’s why we’re able to get good assistants. It’s something I take great pride in. The first time I was panicked when an assistant was hired away, but now I relish it since you want the best. Those are the ones we’ve got.”The Horned Frogs advanced to New York City for the NIT seminfinals at Madison Square Garden with the 71-58 victory over Creighton. They face the winner of Wednesday’s match-up between Texas and Colorado on April 2nd.

Accelerating Blighted Property Foreclosures

first_img Related Articles Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Print Features Tagged with: Foreclosure Vacant Properties January 25, 2019 2,664 Views Editor’s note: This feature originally appeared in the January issue of DS News.In June 2018, Pennsylvania enacted the Vacant and Abandoned Real Estate Foreclosure Act, creating a new process for foreclosure of blighted properties. This legislation, effective December 16, 2018, will be key for servicers and lenders, as it can drastically reduce time frames and save costs that existed under the prior process. The Pennsylvania legislature declared that “Vacant and abandoned real estate, coupled with a default in the obligation to make mortgage payments secured by that real estate, presents a danger to the health, safety, and welfare of a community.”The legislature concluded that “An accelerated procedure is needed to maintain the due process rights of owners of real estate and to reduce unnecessary delays in an action of mortgage foreclosure … to recover real estate that is vacant and abandoned.” There are three ways of establishing abandonment. A property shall be “certified” as vacant and abandoned if (1) a creditor has been designated as a “conservator” of the property under the Abandoned and Blighted Property Conservatorship Act; (2) the property is certified as vacant and abandoned by the municipality in which the property is located; or (3) the property is certified as vacant and abandoned in a judicial proceeding. Under the Municipal Certification process, a property shall be deemed vacant and abandoned by the municipality if a creditor requests that a municipal code enforcement officer make such a determination.The code enforcement officer must inspect the property and determine that it is abandoned under the criteria set forth in section 2305. The officer shall then provide notice of the determination and an opportunity for hearing to contest the determination. If the owner, after receiving notice and opportunity for hearing, fails within 30 days to seek review of a determination that the property is vacant, the determination will be final.The third alternative is the judicial certification process. A property shall be deemed certified as abandoned when a creditor or purchaser files a request with the court to issue a rule to show cause. The creditor must submit an affidavit supported by images or other appropriate evidence, alleging that the property qualifies for certification as vacant and abandoned under the requirements of section 2305. The request may be filed together with the original complaint in the proceeding or at any time during the course of the proceeding. The required affidavit may be provided by a municipal code enforcement officer, the creditor, purchaser, or by a competent adult who has personal knowledge of the condition of the property.Section 2305 sets forth the indicia for determination of abandonment, and the property must satisfy at least three of the following:windows, doors boarded up, unhinged, closed off, or smashed inproperty stripped of copper or other metalsfurnishings, personal items, appliances, or fixtures removed » utilities terminatednewspapers or mail accumulated, or delivery discontinued by USPSrubbish, trash, or debris accumulatedmultiple municipal building/housing code violationswritten statements by neighbors, delivery persons, or municipal code enforcement officers indicating that the property is abandonedhazardous, noxious, or unhealthy substances accumulatedcommunication from the owner stating that he has vacated the property or intends toAn owner may respond in the judicial proceeding by filing a statement that the property is occupied. The response shall include a denial of any of the factors listed above that are considered in the determination of vacancy. If a response is not filed within 20 days after being served, the court shall render an order certifying the property as vacant. If a timely response is filed, the court shall schedule a hearing to determine if credible evidence exists to certify the property as vacant within not fewer than 20 nor more than 30 days after proof of service of the rule to show cause. Following a certification that a property is abandoned, any subsequent documents required to be served on the owner may be served and delivered by first-class mail to an address specified by the owner for the receipt of communications relating to the property or, if no address is specified, by delivery to the address of the property and by posting of notice in a conspicuous location on the property. This saves significant time and cost involved with the regular foreclosure process requiring personal service of a Notice of Sale. After certification of vacancy, the Act lays out the process for expedited Sheriff’s sale.According to section 2306, a property certified as abandoned shall not be subject to mediation or conciliation established by a local court to encourage resolution of owneroccupied residential mortgage foreclosures. When certified as vacant, upon the request of a creditor, the sheriff, on receipt of an accelerated sale fee of $500, shall schedule a sale of the property to be conducted no later than 60 days following the filing of the writ of execution and the sheriff’s deed must be recorded no later than 30 days following the sale. This is a significant savings of time from the regular foreclosure process. Finally, if a property is certified as abandoned, or with the consent of the owner, the creditor may enter the property for the purpose of inspecting, maintaining, and repairing the property, and the creditor shall not be liable to the owner for trespass or damage resulting from something other than the creditor’s gross negligence or willful misconduct.Remediation of conditions that provide evidence of abandonment by the creditor or corrective action taken by a municipality to protect public health and welfare shall not prevent a property from meeting the requirements to be certified as vacant and abandoned. Both of these provisions are excellent additions that will benefit lenders and servicers. As there are significant benefits for lenders and servicers, servicers should be actively reviewing current portfolios for properties that may be able to take part in the new expedited process.
