ABC's Extreme Home Makeover crew hit Louisville this week to build a home for Patrick Hughes and his family. If you've ever seen the Louisville marching band recently, then you know Patrick.His dad assists him in marching with the band by pushing him in a wheelchair. And he's not just doing that for show.

Indy Realtor posted this 5,201 Views

Anybody in the Indianapolis area is well aware of the tax increases and the genius ideas of issuing a rebate check to offset the increase that occurred this year.  Well, as the issuing of the rebate checks draws nearer for some counties it seems the tax payer will get stuck footing the bill for actually getting these checks out. While the money for rebates is obviously coming from the state, what the state failed to provide money for was the cost to issue the checks.  Marion County...

I'm sure everyone has heard about the new Bay County International Airport, but if you haven't, you soon will. The current Bay County Airport is situated in the heart of Panama City.

This could potentially mean that in the near future, someone with average credit and no(or low) down payment would actually be able to get a loan of up to $1,000,000 at a favorable rate.
