Good afternoon!

Well after two weeks following Presidential candidates and a week off to get over bronchitis, it's back to work! You know the feeling! You spend at least half your first day reading emails, going through mail, and trying to get your brain back into the routine of things.

Today, I covered Attorney General Roy Cooper and the Commissioner of Banks announcing that homeowners facing foreclosure issues can call a hotline. The hotline provides free phone counseling 24 hours a day. In the next month, the national hotline will connect the homeowners to an appointment for an in-person session.

Filings are up 135% since 2005. The state ranks 18th in the nation for most foreclosure filings.

The officials were clear this was not taxpayer money funding the program and it was not a bailout for homeowners who took on too much mortgage.

Should be interesting to see if it helps. Stats show more than 50% never ask for help until it's too late.

Tomorrow is Super Tuesday and I'll be working a late shift to try and sort out the 22 states from coast to coast. Should be a fascinating day to say the least!

I wish I had more to share, but my brain is still trying to get back in the routine as well! See you tomorrow!
