YR’s Teen AdvisoryCouncil, TEENPOWER, Vanderburgh County Teen Court and Make a Difference Grants are unique, evidence- based programs that impact regional youth ages 5-18. Learn more about Youth Resources of Southwestern Indiana at youth-resources.org. In addition to her responsibilities at home, Giovanna maintains good grades and plays on McGary’s volleyball team.She is also part of the school’s news team and helps with younger kids at church. And, she’s always ready to listenwhen a friend needs her.“They’ll come to me because they know that I won’t judge them, or I won’t make fun of them,” Giovanna said.Whether it’s at school, church or, perhaps, most noticeably, at home, Keesha hopes this honor reminds herdaughter of how much she is appreciated for the many ways she makes others’ lives better.“No matter what, her smile can light up a whole room. No matter what kind of day you’re having, she’s the light at the end of the tunnel,” Keesha said.As October’s Youth of the Month, Giovanna becomes a candidate for Youth Resources’ Youth of the Year award which will be presented at YR’s Hall of Fame Celebration in April. she had to nominate Giovanna, even though her daughter didn’t think she’d win. Then came the good news.“I wanted to cry. The look on her face was priceless,” recalled Keesha. “I want the whole world to know there are good kids… If I could scream from a mountain top I would do it. You hear so many bad and negative things, and I’mlike, not all kids are like that.”Dale Naylor would probably join Keesha on that mountain top. The McGary Middle School principal agrees thatGiovanna, or “Gigi” as her friends call her, deserves this recognition. “Giovanna is a wonderful young lady. She is kind and compassionate. (She) will go out of her way to help others. She is humble, and she doesn’t know a stranger,” Naylor said. A juicy steak with yellow rice, corn and a crisp side salad. That’s what Giovanna McAlpine would whip up if a special visitor came to her house for dinner. It’s an ambitious menu for manyadults, and even more impressive considering that Giovanna is only 13.The McGary Middle School 8th grader has a lot of experience, though. With guidance from her dad, Mike, she’s been cooking and baking since elementary school and is now the family’s primary chef.“Any kind of meat is her specialty,” Giovanna’s mom, Keesha McAlpine, explains.Steak, roast, pork loin — Giovanna can handle them all. She says her family’s reaction to her meals is the best part of cooking (no bad reviews yet), but her contributions continue well past the kitchen. Giovanna cleans and does laundry, too. She even gets everyone up and going in the morning. It’s a dream come true for Keesha, who calls herself “the luckiest mom in the world”.“It’s amazing to have a kid that’s 13 that’s willing to do anything and everything. Her main focus is to make sure I’m ok and everything’s done.” Keesha said.Keesha’s gratitude is multiplied by the reality that many of the things Giovanna does – she cannot. Keesha lives with constant pain from rheumatoid arthritis that makes it difficult to move at times.“She usually doesn’t really say anything about it, but I can just tell,” Giovanna said.Keesha had a light bulb moment when she found out about Youth Resources’ Youth of the Month award and knew FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Weighing up pros and cons from having multiple offers

first_imgFile photo.GETTING multiple offers should be a great result for the seller and the agent. It means the hard work to prepare the property for sale, market it and present it to buyers has paid off. And it is, but there is a down side for agents, writes REIQ Townsville Zone Chairman Wayne Nicholson. Often what happens is one or sometimes all buyers pull out because they don’t want their offer to be used to increase the other buyers’ offer or vice versa. Many people are deeply suspicious when it is revealed they are in a multiple-offer situation. They may not believe there is another offer on the table and they are being hustled to increase their offer. So here are some facts to help blow away the myths. Agents are required to present all written offers to the seller and the appointed agent has a fiduciary responsibility to act in the seller’s best interests at all times. More from news01:21Buyer demand explodes in Townsville’s 2019 flood-affected suburbs12 Sep 202001:21‘Giant surge’ in new home sales lifts Townsville property market10 Sep 2020It is strictly illegal to misrepresent a multiple-offer situation. In a multiple-offer situation, many agents will use the REIQ Multiple Offer form, although they are not legally required to do so. If you are advised that you are in a multiple- offer situation it is an opportunity to put your best offer forward.Bear in mind you may not get another chance and you should also be aware that it’s not always the highest offer that is most attractive to the seller. Sometimes the seller may be more interested in other things, such as a fast settlement, unconditional cash offer, or waiving of the cooling off period. Last week we had three buyers interested in one property. We issued all potential buyers with a contract and a Multiple Offer form and told each one to put their best foot forward. In this case, the asking price was $370,000. Buyer 1 offered $367,000 subject to finance, settle in 30 days. Buyer 2 offered $370,000 cash unconditional, settle in 60 days. Buyer 3 offered $371,000 subject to finance, settle in 30 days. The seller accepted Buyer 2’s offer, which was not the highest price but included more favourable terms. Sometimes it’s about presenting an offer that is more appealing in other ways in order to be successful.last_img read more
