Required fields are marked * For the first time ever, the median price of homes sold in Pasadena has exceeded $1 million, according to 2020/2021 property tax data provided to the city by a consultant and published last week.Sale prices have risen as the number of sales declined significantly due to COVID-19 stay-at-home orders.The smaller inventory and lower interest rates from January through September drove the median sale price of a detached single-family residential home in Pasadena up to $1,050,000, a $93,000 (9.7 percent) increase in median sale price from 2019.“It doesn’t surprise me, because supply continues to be limited relative to demand,” said Pasadena realtor Bill Podley of deasy penner podley. And that will continue “until more homeowners decide to sell or relocate,” Podley said.“I’m really addressing this more from the more senior population because we’re all aware — and my understanding is this is true over much of the United States — that people just aren’t selling like they used to,” Podley said.“It used to be people move about every seven years, and now it’s closer to every 20,” he said.According to the California Association of Realtors, all major regions declined in the number of sales with Southern California dropping the most at -12.2 percent, while the Central Valley had the smallest decline at -1.5 percent.This chart, published by the city, shows the rise in the median price of single-family homes in Pasadena over recent years.Median prices in the Central Valley and in Southern California increased by 7.4 percent and 3.3 percent, respectively, based on pent up demand. Other areas reflected similar patterns.In October, Pasadena Now reported significant jumps in home prices outpacing price increases in the county in three of the city’s six zip codes. At that time, only two of the city’s six area codes had median home prices below $1 million, 91103, which includes Northwest Pasadena, and 91101.The city’s taxable property value increased by 6 percent with a total assessed value increase of approximately $2 billion.According to a property tax summary provided by city consultants HdL Coren & Cone, the largest assessed value increases were caused by a combination of recent sales and new developments.The largest increase occurred on a commercial parcel at 135 N. Los Robles Ave., which was reassessed after its 2018 purchase from the Successor Agency; resulting in an increase of $73.4 million.The 2018 sale of two parcels at 251 and 225 S. Lake Ave., to CVFl-S Lake Avenue LP, added $96.7 million in value.New improvements on a multifamily residential parcel owned by GDCV Pasadena 201 LLC (75 W. Walnut St.) added $50.4 million in value.“Prices have continued to rise in response to lower inventory and lower interest rates,” according to the summary provided by a newsletter produced by HDL Companies, which provides auditing, operations, and revenue solutions for more than 500 government agencies in 11 states.

Provost to chancellor

Heimmermann will be taking the next step in his academic journey as chancellor of the University of South Carolina-Aiken. Heimmermann has been in higher education since 1994.

During his tenure, he has established new colleges, academic and research centers and institutes in Biomedical Science, Cybersecurity and Information, Natural Resource Management and Water and Energy.“Dan’s contributions to UTPB will pay dividends to our university for decades to come. His leadership has been a critical part of our success and he will be deeply missed by the entire Falcon family. We take great pride in knowing that one of our own has been selected for this important role. We are confident that he will accomplish great things as he leads the University of South Carolina Aiken,” UTPB President Sandra Woodley said in a news release.Former UTPB President David Watts recruited him. Before coming to Odessa, Heimmermann was at Mississippi University for Women for two years. Before that, he was at UT Brownsville when it existed. He has been in higher education since 1994.Originally from Appleton, Wis., Heimmermann earned his undergraduate degrees in history and Spanish from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. He earned a master’s in early modern history and a doctorate in French history, both from Marquette University in Milwaukee.“I had a love for history and when I was in graduate school I had the opportunity to teach as a teaching assistant and that’s really what drew me to continue for seven more years after undergraduate to pursue the master’s and the PhD in French history so I could teach,” Heimmermann said.He started at the University of North Alabama and was there for 13 years. Heimmermann met his wife, Claudia, there. She worked at the university, as well.The couple has a 14-year-old daughter, Lucie, and two dogs.“My first job was in Alabama in 1994 and I taught besides world civilization which is a general education course, I would teach upper level and graduate courses in European history, French history and the French Revolution, Napoleon and 18th century Renaissance, reformation things like that,” Heimmermann said.He then moved to Brownsville, Columbus, Miss., and to UTPB. The chancellor’s job is like that of a university president and there is a president that presides over the South Carolina system.“This will be a tough place to leave for a lot of reasons. One, I really enjoy working with the faculty and staff and Dr. Woodley here. I have a great job here so that’s going to be tough and it’s a job where, honestly, I know I’m appreciated which is important. The other thing is, personally, we have made some lifelong friends here …,” Heimmermann said.The good thing is that with technology they can be more in touch with people than ever.The Aiken campus has about 4,000 students, so it’s a little smaller than UTPB. But many of the things the university is doing, or plans to do, are aligned with what UTPB is doing in terms of developing engineering, cybersecurity, a business incubator and an advanced manufacturing center.“A lot of the things that we’re working on here they too are working on in South Carolina. From my point of view, a lot of the stuff that I’m interested in that we’ve been interested in here I’ll be able to continue there and hopefully offer some things. Here, in the last seven years, we’ve considerably expanded our engineering programs here and adding the three new programs, including master’s degrees,” Heimmermann said.“There are a lot of similarities with trajectories that for me was very appealing and a lot of support from the community which that’s been the great thing here. As I’ve reflected on my career here there are a lot of advantages here. Being part of the UT System can’t be overstated. (There are) few places could we have accomplished so much; I’m just talking about my little sliver of time here — seven years — without the support of the UT System. Three engineering programs, $60 million kinesiology building so the UT System and the support of the people of West Texas. That can’t be overstated either,” Heimmermann said.He added that the football program also started during his tenure.The South Carolina post will be Heimmermann’s first university presidency.“It will be a good, new experience; a first, which are exciting; exhilarating,” he said.The scenic location was an appeal for him.“From a family perspective, it’s got a lot of advantages just to be a little more proximate to her family and two sisters and her parents …,” he said.He added that he likes the fact that it’s part of the University of South Carolina System and it’s part of the Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges.“It’s one of a handful of public schools that are recognized as a liberal arts school. I’m a liberal arts guy. That was really appealing,” Heimmermann said.He officially starts July 1, but there are already things planned for before he arrives such as a retreat at the end of June.Heimmermann has previously applied for positions in Florida and Louisiana. There were about 100 applicants for the position he obtained at Aiken.“It was very gratifying. Those odds are somewhat daunting, so I feel real fortunate and frankly it’s been no secret that I’ve applied, but I’ve done so really selectively because I’m really happy here, certainly family-wise and my job,” he said.“I figured if I was ever going to become a president, I had to shoot somewhat selectively just to see what happens,” he added.

Charley Hull shoots 68 in Kraft Nabisco

first_img Charley makes the cut in Kraft Nabisco 31 March 2012 Top England amateur Charley Hull has impressively made the halfway cut the Kraft Nabisco Championship in California. The 16-year-old, who is playing in her first Major, qualified for the weekend right on the cut mark, at four-over par. Charley, the fifth-ranked amateur in the world, had four bogeys, one double and one birdie as she compiled a second round 77. But, coupled with her opening round of one-under 71, it was good enough to keep her in the championship. The Woburn player is one of four amateurs to make the cut, alongside a Thai golfer and two Americans. The championship is led at the halfway stage by world number one Yani Tseng. After the second round, Charley told her Twitter followers “Played bad today but made the cut.” She said she tried to hit too hard under pressure but added: “I know how to smooth things out, take one more club and swing soft!” English professionals to make the cut were Jodi Ewart on two-under, Karen Stupples on one-over and Melissa Reid on three-over.   England’s world number five amateur, Charley Hull, shot up the leaderboard in the Kraft Nabisco Championship in California with a superb four-under par 68 in the third round. It lifted the 16-year-old into a share of 37th place in the first Major of the season, ahead of such players as Morgan Pressel, Caroline Hedwall, Melissa Reid and Karen Stupples. The Woburn player, who is now level par for the championship, noted her score on Twitter with the very expressive hashtag “Boom.” She also told her followers: “I’m gaining loads of experience this week playing in my first professional and my first Major championship!” Charley’s impressive performance began with a round of one-under 71, followed by 77 and now 68. Her latest score included five birdies and just one bogey. She’s just one-shot behind the two leading amateurs, Ariya Jutanugarn of Thailand and Austin Ernst of the USA. Meanwhile, the championship is jointly led by world number one Yani Tseng and Karin Sjodin of Sweden who are both nine-under par. 30 Mar 2012 Charley Hull shoots 68 in Kraft Nabisco center_img Flying start for Charley at Kraft Nabisco 30 March 2012 England’s Charley Hull made a flying start to her first Major when she birdied the first hole at the Kraft Nabisco Championship in California – on her way to a one-under 71 in the opening round. Charley, who has just been promoted to fifth in the world amateur rankings, is in a share of 18th place and five shots behind the first round leader, Amy Yang. She’s in top class company, just three shots behind world number one Yani Tseng two behind Paula Creamer – and England’s Jodi Ewart – and one ahead of teenage sensation Lexi Thompson. After her round, Charley, 16, told the LPGA about her dream start: “I birdied my first ever hole of my first ever major, and that was my first ever pro tournament, so I was pretty chuffed with that. “It was really good. The next hole I just forgot about it and just carried on playing golf. It just got me up and excited.” The Woburn player explained that she had set out to cope with playing on such a big stage by keeping things simple. “It’s hard to take it all in, but I’m just trying to concentrate, not try and do anything different to upset my routine,” she said. Charley’s scorecard looked very neat, with birdies on the first and sixth and a solitary bogey on the fourth. But she later tweeted: “Left so much out there!”   Meanwhile, Charley moved up to fifth when this week’s world amateur golf rankings were announced. It’s her highest ranking so far. It’s been quite a week for Charley, who was earlier selected for the GB&I Curtis Cup team, after much controversy. The Ladies Golf Union had originally said that she made herself unavailable for selection by accepting her invitation to the Kraft Nabisco championship, instead of playing in a team trial. But the selectors overturned that decision. The team was announced while she was in the States and Charley has spoken of her pleasure to the USGA: “I’m overwhelmed. I’m so happy, and I’d like to thank all the selectors. It should be great. We’ve got a great captain, Teg, so I’m really looking forward to it. “I’m back on the team now. I was upset, obviously, but now I’m really happy that I’m back in it. Now it’s history. I didn’t think they were going to change it for me, but I’m glad they did. I can’t wait for Nairn.” Image: copyright leaderboardphotography.comlast_img read more
