Rep. Bob Ballinger of Hindsville is facing foreclosure on his home, the Madison County Record reports

Ballinger’s home first faced foreclosure in early 2014 after the bank issued a foreclosure notice on his home amid issues. He stated then that he had fallen behind in payments after losing a prior job, and that he and the bank were working toward negotiating a loan modification. His home again faced foreclosure early last year, but pending negotiations would prompt the lender to pull its foreclosure notice ahead of the home’s sale date. Ballinger and his wife bought the home on Nov. 19, 2010.

The 1,568-square-foot home was sold at that time for $95,000.

On Monday, Ballinger said he’s again in a dispute with the bank regarding the home, stating that the bank has refused to allow payments to be made.

“We’re ready, and have been since the beginning, to make the payments, but we have not been allowed to,” Ballinger said.

According to a legal published this week in The Record, Ballinger and his wife “executed a security instrument conveying certain property therein described to JPMorgan Chase Bank,” and “default has occurred in the payment of said indebtedness and the same is now, therefore, wholly due.”

    The federal criminal information released as part of former lobbyist Rusty Cranford's June 7 guilty plea on bribery charges describes a Person 9 who worked for the nonprofit healthcare provider Preferred Family Healthcare and was associated with Cranford. The description of Person 9 appears to match Robin Raveendran, the former PFH executive — and former longtime staffer at the state's Department of Human Services — who was arrested Thursday in a separate case, charged in Independence County with two felony counts of Medicaid fraud after an investigation by the state's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families.

But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
