In All Things, Give Thanks

By Isaiah Henry, President and CEO
November 20, 2017

Gratitude is the act of giving thanks, or being grateful for the things that we have. When things feel easy, gratitude often comes naturally. However, it’s in times of trials, when we are weary and broken, that gratitude can get lost in the day-to-day challenge that is life. In a few short days, many of us will gather around a Thanksgiving table with family and friends, and we’ll share a meal that is meant to symbolize gratitude. But, in a year that has been wrought with pain and hardship, for... READ THE POST

 

If You Build it, They will Come

September 27, 2017

In the 1989 film titled Field of Dreams, Kevin Costner’s character, Ray Kinsella, built a baseball diamond in the middle of his corn field in Iowa. His family and neighbors thought he was insane, but he kept following the voice in his head that said, “If you build it, they will come.” It was that same voice that sent him on journey to Boston and Minnesota and, after collecting some unlikely friends along the way, Ray returned to his field to find the ghosts of baseball’s greats having a catch...

Solar Energy Systems – An Ongoing Hot Debate

March 30, 2015

The California Solar Rights Act (“Solar Rights Act”), found at Civil Code Sections 714 and 714.1, provides certain protections for homeowners seeking to install solar energy systems (i.e., solar panels) on their properties. The intent of the Solar Rights Act is to prohibit homeowners associations (“HOAs”) from broadly banning solar energy systems for aesthetic reasons–whether through an explicit ban or through onerous architectural restrictions that greatly reduce the performance of solar energy systems, or increase their costs. To that end, the Solar Rights Act renders void and unenforceable any provision... READ THE POST

There are three distinct types of legacies which community... READ THE POST
