Presented By Classic Brands

(Columbus)- Twice each year, the Supreme Court of Ohio conducts a Civic Education Program and relocates from the capital city to hold sessions in other Ohio communities. This year, the Civic Education Program is set for Fayette County.

On December 9, Miami Trace hosted an off-site visit from staff members affiliated with the Supreme Court of Ohio.

“Just this week, we received a message from Sara Stiffler, Manager of Civic Education Program for Supreme Court of Ohio, that: Chief Justice O’Connor has selected Miami Trace High School as the location for Fayette County Off-Site Court on April 27, 2022”, according to a social media post from Miami Trace Schools.

“We are both elated and humbled that the Supreme Court of Ohio has chosen Miami Trace Local School District and look forward to hosting in April. This is a unique opportunity for high school students of Fayette
County to learn and have exposure to Ohio’s judicial system. Students from Fayette Christian School, Washington City Schools, and Miami Trace will attend the proceedings and receive the rare opportunity to
participate in the processes leading up to them.”

Curriculum materials, such as summaries of specific cases to be argued, will be provided to teachers and students prior to the session. Attorneys will team with Fayette County educators to review case materials and Ohio’s judicial system. On the day of the court session, selected students will attend a question and answer session with the Justices of the Court, attend one of three oral arguments, and meet with the case attorneys for a debriefing after their assigned case has been argued.

“The Miami Trace Local School District is honored to participate in the Off-Site Court Program and host the Supreme Court of Ohio. We look forward to students of Fayette County joining the more than 32,000 Ohio students who have been granted the opportunity to observe the proceedings of the Supreme Court and interact with justices, attorneys, and court staff.”

Ohio Homebuyers Encouraged to “Get Organized” in the New Year

Presented By Classic Brands

(Columbus) – The start of a new year means new beginnings, New Year’s resolutions and new opportunities. For some, this could mean purchasing a new home. In fact, a recent study shows that 45 million Millennials alone plan to buy their first home in 2022.

Given that predicted sales volume, Ohio Department of Commerce’s Division of Real Estate and Professional Licensing is recognizing January’s “Get Organized Month” by sharing organizational tips and resources to help real estate professionals and anyone looking to purchase a home. 

“We strive to protect those buying or selling a home in Ohio,” said Division of Real Estate and Professional Licensing Superintendent Anne Petit.  “In a very competitive housing market, it is important for our licensees, their clients and customers to be organized when working through the homebuying process to protect what for most is the largest investment they’ll ever make.

“Get Organized Month” was created to increase awareness of the value of being organized.While organizational skills are always important, they can be critical for anyone looking to buy a home. 

Homebuyers are encouraged to understand the importance of preparation and investing time, not only in getting organized, but also understanding the importance of each step in the home buying transaction. Check out these tips that will help in the homebuying process:

  • Do your research, the more you know the better you can plan
  • Always verify you are working with an actively licensed real estate agent
  • Get finances in order; run your credit report and identify a lender for your home purchase
  • Find an actively licensed home inspector to provide a detailed report on your potential home’s condition
  • Gather necessary documents needed for closing

The Division of Real Estate licenses and regulates Ohio home inspectors, real estate brokers and sales associates who arrange for the sale or lease of real estate, as well as real estate appraisers ensuring all licensed professionals conduct their business in a legal and ethical manner.
