Supreme Court of Ohio: Ohio judge lacks jurisdiction in Kentucky collections case

Published: 06/24/2016

The Supreme Court of Ohio this week ruled that an Ohio judge lacked jurisdiction to issue an injunction shielding an Ohio attorney from the collection efforts of Kentucky judgment creditors.

WESTERLY, R.I. (AP) — Taylor Swift has a home in this seaside community, but even one of the world’s most famous women wouldn’t be able to join the Westerly Yacht Club, which bestows full membership only on men.

A vote to change the policy at the nearly century-old club in the Ocean State, where the love of sailing runs deep, failed to reach a two-thirds majority last week.

BOISE, Idaho — For-profit medical schools are starting to pop up around the country, promising to create new family doctors for underserved rural regions.

Rural states like Idaho need more general practitioners, with the baby boom generation aging and expanded insurance coverage under the Affordable Care Act making health care more accessible.

Goal of owning home still strong, and 8 other housing trends

Published: 06/24/2016

WASHINGTON — Americans still want to own homes — if they can afford to. That’s the finding of a report released this week by the Harvard University Joint Center for Housing Studies.

The pressures of student debt, rising rents and the leftover wreckage from the nearly decade-old housing bust have restrained people’s ability to buy, even though the dream remains alive. The report sees reasons for both optimism (more millennials are poised to leave the nest) and concern (rising numbers of renters face extreme costs).

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — The shuttered Showboat casino hotel will reopen next month — this time as a nongambling hotel, a developer said.

“I’m extremely bullish on Atlantic City,” Blatstein said. “I’ve never seen a better opportunity.”
