South Bend Tournament Scores – June 10th-12th
Well, the Kings are in the championship game tomorrow at 11:30. Every team came to play this weekend.
MHRE Kings 5 – Octane 06 Lucania 4
Kings 7 Super Series 5
Kings 6 Pro Ambitions 5 ( this is the Chicago fury team under another name. Ranked top 10 in the country)
Kings 7 ND – Hockey Selects 6. This game was better than watching a NHL game. We went down 2-0 in the first period then our coach called our 1st and only time out and was livid on how they were playing. This team was facing elimination. If we won we received a Sunday morning bye. If we lost we needed to play early Sunday morning for a semi final.
During the game there were 5 lead changes. In the 3rd with 4 minutes to go we were down 5-4 then tied the game. 1 minute later ND scored to make the score 6-5. 2 minutes on the clock the Kings tied the game at 6-6. With 20 seconds left we had a face off at our end. Chase Nytray ended up getting control of the puck and instead of dumping the puck in their zone to give us the tie he made a forward pass right on the tape of Lucas Vanvleet (our stud) who had a break away and scored with 5 seconds left on the clock.
The place went nuts! Best game I ever watched these kids played with so much heart and guts.

MHI Housing Alert – U.S. House of Representatives Passes Amendment to Support Purchase of Manufactured Homes
U.S. House of Representatives Passes Amendment to Support Purchase of Manufactured Homes
The U.S. House of Representatives has approved an amendment by Rep. Peter Welch (D-VT) to increase the flexibility for low income families to use a Section 8 voucher to purchase a manufactured home. The amendment was approved by voice vote. MHI commends Congressman Welch for his leadership in passing this important policy through the U.S. House of Representatives.
MHI had played a major role in first getting an identical provision passed nine years ago in the 2007 Section 8 reform bill (H.R. 1851) and in Section 8 reform bills in subsequent Congresses. Most recently, last October MHI submitted this policy recommendation to the House Financial Services Committee in response to the Chairman’s request for “Ideas on Poverty and Housing Affordability.” MHI asked for Congress to allow Section 8 voucher recipients to choose manufactured housing.
Under current law, a Section 8 voucher can be used to pay for some of the costs of living in a manufactured home in a community – such as lot rent, tenant paid utilities, and management charges. But since the law does not allow the housing voucher to be used to pay the actual financing costs of owning the home itself, this authority is seldom used.
This amendment, which was supported by Financial Services Committee Chairman Hensarling (R-TX) and Ranking Member Waters (D-CA), allows vouchers to be used not just for the cost of leasing the land (which is currently permitted) but also for other monthly costs of purchasing a manufactured home loan, including mortgage payments, property tax, and insurance. The change would allow families that receive a tenant-based Section 8 voucher to help pay for an alternative to renting an apartment – allowing them to actually purchase a home. The amendment does not provide any direct funds or require anyone to use a voucher to live in a manufactured home. However, with this change the approximately 2.1 million Section 8 voucher holders in America will now have the option to use their Section 8 voucher to buy a manufactured home.
The broader bill that now includes this provision, H.R. 3700, the Housing Opportunity through Modernization Act, was passed by the U.S. House of Representatives by a vote of 472-0. It will now be sent to the U.S. Senate for consideration.
