e Bath County News.Outlook ', June 3, 2004 .C00mmuni Built on dreams By: Mary Linda Copher When people live in a rural community, it can sometimes become hard for them to find just the right house. David and ;Regina Combs are a young cou- ple with two children who have rented for some time. They have Often thought what it would be like to own their own home but being from a small town, they ,vanted to stay close to family md friends. They had looked for sometime for just the right house that they could call their !lream home. '" At one point, they thought they had done just that, however halfway through the loan, things just seemed to go wrong. They again gave up on ever owning .,their own home. David was .talking to a friend of several ears. He told David to go see Jeffrey Otis at Hometown , Mortgage; they might be able to ,help him. Jeffrey and David ',started working on his applica- .tion, but David says he was not excited about dealing with a government program because of all the red tape. Jeffrey explained that the USDA Rural Development Guaranteed Hous- ing Program was an excellent program and it did not take that long. He explained about the 100% financing--this got David's attention. After further conversation, talking to Regina and completing the application, they decided to go that route. David and Regina wanted "their" house. This meant that they would have to build and Jeffrey knew that this could be done through the USDA Rural Development Guaranteed Hous- ing Program. Finding the right spot was another problem. After checking around, they found a gentleman by the name of Coleman Blevins that was building new homes on a prop- erty that he owned. David got in contact with Mr. Blevin and they started the process of build- ing their new home. They continued to live in their two-bedroom rented house but were getting excited about their new home. Their daughter Heather was excited----especial- ly excited about getting her new room. She could now have the privacy that every little girl wants. Heather said, "My walls are pink and decorated in Power Puff." Nathan, who is three, has his room decorated in Scooby Doe. Regina said that the thing she liked most was her big kitchen. Regina now looks forward to sitting on their front porch, which goes all the way across the front of the house. The chil- dren will be able to play in a yard where Regina and David will not have to WOITy about them. David has just come to real- ize that he will have a lot of mowing to do this summer but he can deal with that, since it belongs to them. "I don't know just what to say about all of this," David said. "It was easier than I thought it would be and the staff at Hometown Mortgage was really helpful. They guided us every step of the way. We are so lucky to have found a pro- gram such as the USDA Rural Development Guaranteed Hous- ing Loans."

According to Bath County Attorney Kim Hunt price, nearly half of the charges she hears in district court could be avoided if people were more aware of some spe- cific laws in Kentucky. "1 know it is aggravating for people to find out they have bro- ken a law that they have never even hear of," Price said. "Ironically, many of these laws that people are unaware of or consider minor offenses could result in jail time." Price said some of Kentucky's most simple laws are what provide many people with a court appearance and force some to pay high fines with the possibility of spending time in jail. "These aren't laws that threaten the life of another, but are just procedural things that we must follow because it is the law. and these laws help main- tain order," Price said.
