The Vermont Student Assistance Corporation (VSAC) will offer forbearances of up to 90 days to borrowers who have federal or private education loans with VSAC and will have trouble keeping up with their payments as a result of the recent weather disaster.In addition, due to President Obama’s disaster declaration, VSAC may be able to provide loan relief to some of its borrowers who have defaulted on their federal loans. To qualify, borrowers must live in the counties designated by the president as eligible for individual assistance.A forbearance allows a borrower to temporarily stop payments or pay a reduced amount. The borrower is responsible for the interest that accrues on the loan during the forbearance period.VSAC stopped making new federal loans on July 1, 2010, when the government switched to ‘direct lending.’ VSAC continues to service federal loans made prior to the switch as well as its existing private loan portfolio.Vermonters affected by the storm who have federal loans with servicers other than VSAC should contact those servicers to explore forbearance eligibility.For more information, call 800-798-8722.

Such sonic dissonance – which absolutely works – is rooted in Sunny War’s early days in Nashville and wayward childhood that eventual landed her in California, being raised by a single mom, and immersion in the Los Angeles punk scene. Recent years have seen Sunny War honing her craft on the boardwalk in Venice Beach, where she has reached near legendary status. Rolling Stone recently named her as an artist you should know. Take their word for it and listen here, as Trail Mix features “If I Wasn’t Broken,” from With The Sun, her brand new record that releases this week.Every once in a while, an artist floats on the edge of my sonic consciousness for years and I don’t give him the full attention he deserves. That has happened this month with Grant-Lee Phillips, a noted singer/songwriter with a long and noted career, both as a solo artist and as a member of Grant Lee Buffalo. I dug into his catalog after dropping “The Wilderness” into this month’s mix and haven’t stopped listening. Do yourselves a favor and do the same if you don’t know Grant-Lee’s stuff.This month, Trail Mix also features another track from The Oh Hellos, who are in the midst of releasing four EPS over the coming months. With the debut of each EP, a new track will be featured here and a feature is in the works with the last release. Check out “Grow”” from the Eurus on the mix.Some great friends of Trail Mix are back again this month. New tunes abound from old favorites like The Wood Brothers, Jim White, Janiva Magness, Lynn Taylor & The BarFlies, Caleb Caudle, Julian Lage, Lew Card, Django Django, Wild Child, and the iconic Doc Watson.New tunes from artists new to Trail Mix are also tip top this month. Trail Mix is happy to welcome Morgan Wade & The Stepbrothers, Nathan Kalish, Rainbrother, and Lowpines to the family.This month’s blog has some great stuff in store for you. Stay tuned for chats with Ed Romanoff, Ruby Boots, and Western North Carolina’s own Maggie Valley Band.As always, thanks for listening. Trail Mix and these great artists appreciate your support. Help spread the word and buy some music from these good folks. 4:39 Wordsmith Julian Lage 4:18 Down Below Janiva Magness Feat. Courtney Hartman read more
Published on August 29, 2016 at 5:53 pm Contact Tomer: [email protected] | @tomer_langer Kenny Lassiter first subbed into Sunday night’s game against Loyola Marymount in the 29th minute, replacing Johannes Pieles with Syracuse leading 1-0. The minute he stepped on the field, he made an impact.At first, he drew oohs and aahs from the crowd with some nifty footwork. On one, Lassiter faked to the right then turned in quickly, leaving two LMU defenders still looking for him on the right. Later on, when he was right outside the penalty box, he again turned inside to his left and in one quick motion launched a powerful strike towards goal.The shot flew high, but it was evident that Lassiter was applying pressure on the Lions’ defense every time he played. Still, he was back on the bench to start the second half with Pieles in his spot.“The guy who started ahead of him scored the game-winner and scored two goals,” SU head coach Ian McIntyre said. “Kenny’s been awesome. It’s a good problem to have.”No. 6 Syracuse (2-0) has two talented forward in Lassiter and Pieles, who play two different styles. But with SU’s base 3-5-2 formation and with speedy senior Chris Nanco already locked into another forward position, there’s only room for one of them at a time. They both figure to play a prominent role for the Orange this season.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTheir builds are similar — Lassiter has one inch and seven pounds on Pieles, and they’re the only two forwards who eclipse the 6-foot mark. Their styles are noticeably different, though.Lassiter is strong and works in quick, powerful and sudden bursts. Pieles is more fluid in his running motion, taking long strides while remaining nimble around the ball. He’s also still learning and finding his way as he adjusts to American college soccer.“It was very tough for me at first to get settled because the game is very different at Europe compared to the US,” Pieles said through interpreter and SU goalie Hendrik Hilpert. “It’s much more physical here.”The two different styles seem to work well off one another. Lions defenders started resorting to using more physical play to knock Pieles off the ball. But when Lassiter came in, he was stronger than most of those defenders, the extra physicality not really affecting him.Pieles scored the game-winning goal in the second 10-minute sudden death overtime, but it was Lassiter who got to play the first 10-minute frame, when SU got off four shots and three corners.McIntyre stressed that Lassiter will be a major contributor on this team, even though he got limited minutes off the bench on Sunday. All three forwards scored goals this weekend, and McIntyre will be looking for more of the same as the season progresses.“I’ll ask (upcoming opponent) Colgate if I can play with 12,” McIntyre joked, “and then I’ll play Kenny on there as well.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ read more
