Khpalwak was in one of the targeted buildings, the provincial headquarters of the national radio and TV station.“We offer our condolences to Khpalwak’s family and friends,” Reporters Without Borders said. “A talented young journalist, he had the courage to work as a reporter in the south of the country, a Taliban bastion. This crime must not go unpunished. We demand the truth about the circumstances of his death. Enemies of media freedom, the Taliban are murdering a still growing number of journalists and ordinary citizens.”Suicide bombers and gunmen began a series of coordinated attacks on several Tarin Kot buildings including the radio and TV station, the governor’s house and police headquarters at around 12:15 pm. Taliban spokesman Qari Yousef Ahmadi confirmed that they were carried out by his organization but denied that the Taliban killed Khpalwak.Khpalwak’s brother told the Pajhwok news agency that his brother sent him an SMS message after being badly injured in which he asked him to pray for him. He died before emergency services arrived. At least 17 people were killed in the attacks.Khpalwak is the third Pajhwok journalist to be killed. Abdul Samad Rohani was killed in Helmand in June 2008 and Janullah Hashimzada was killed in northern Pakistan in August 2009.

Comptroller Outlines Proposals to Reduce Regulatory Burden for Small Banks

A lifelong Texan, Brian received his master’s degree from Amberton University in Garland. Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Speaking at the sixth interagency outreach meeting on The Economic Growth and Regulatory Paperwork Reduction Act (EGRPRA) of 1996, Comptroller of the Currency Thomas J. Curry outlined specific legislative proposals that have been introduced to reduce regulatory burden on smaller banks.The series of outreach meetings began last December 2 in Los Angeles, and the meetings have been hosted by the Federal Reserve System, the OCC, and the FDIC, to discuss their collective effort to reduce regulatory burden placed on insured deposit institutions by the EGRPRA. The meetings are part of the EGRPRA review to allow interested parties to comment on regulatory burden directly to the government agencies.In the sixth and latest outreach meeting, which took place on December 2 in Washington, D.C.—the one-year anniversary of the first outreach meeting—Curry discussed two specific legislative proposals. First, the House voted in October to raise the asset threshold for small banks to $1 billion and is currently included in another funding measure that is likely to be signed by the President, Curry said. Raising the asset threshold to that level would qualify an additional 600 additional banks for the 18-month examination cycle.“That would not only reduce the burden on those well-managed institutions, it would allow the federal banking agencies to focus our supervisory resources on those banks and thrifts that present capital, managerial, or other issues of significant supervisory concern,” Curry said.Curry said the second proposal would provide federal savings associations with greater flexibility to expand their business model without changing their governance structure.“It’s important that federal savings associations, like other businesses, have the flexibility to adapt to changing economic and business environments to meet the needs of their communities, and they shouldn’t have to bear the expense of changing charters in order to do so,” Curry said. “We have recommended authorizing a basic set of powers that both federal savings associations and national banks can exercise, regardless of their charter, so that savings associations can change business strategies without moving to a different charter.”This second proposal recently passed in the House Financial Services Committee, and Curry said he hopes it soon goes for a full House vote.While Curry said these legislative proposals are meaningful steps taken toward achieving relief from regulatory burden for community banks, he admitted there are other ways to make smaller institutions financially viable.“One especially promising approach involves collaboration, which was the subject of a paper we issued recently,” he said. “By pooling resources, smaller institutions can trim costs and serve customers that might otherwise lie beyond their reach.”Click here to read Curry’s complete speech.

Ocean City’s Forum Motel Under New Ownership

first_imgBy Maddy VitaleThe Forum motel, a block from the beach at Eighth Street and Atlantic Avenue has been sold to two brothers who own a dozen motels in the area from Atlantic City to Ocean City. The new owners plan to renovate the rooms and fix up the outside.“As a family-owned hotel company, we admired how the former owners ran the resort and treated their guests,” said co-owner Raj Khatiwala, who spoke to OCNJDaily.com about the sale.His brother, Yogi Khatiwala, is the other owner.The brothers, who grew up in Ventnor and went to Atlantic City High School, and their family owns motels in the Ocean City and Atlantic City markets, Raj Khatiwala said.The Forum motel, which was owned by the Morrison family, was built around the 1950s. It boasts 60 rooms and a heated pool.It is one of just a few left in the resort. The Impala, another motel in town, was purchased by developers Chris Glancey and Bob Morris last year. They are planning to build a new boutique-hotel across the street from The Impala, which is at the corner of Ocean Avenue and 10th Street. Other similar properties are being converted into multi-unit housing.Raj Khatiwala said the brothers have no plans to demolish the motel or use the land for anything other than what it has been used for successfully for decades.“We have no plans to knock this down,” he said. “A lot of these hotels have so much history. The people who come back every year are generational. We look forward to having the same guests year after year.”The Forum motel, located at 800 Atlantic Ave. in Ocean City, will undergo upgrades to the inside.Khatiwala said reservations can be made at the website starting April 1. The Forum will open May 1, way ahead of Memorial Day, the official start to the summer season.Rich Baehrle, a commercial real estate agent with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Fox and Roach Realtors in Northfield, handled the sale.“The property was on the market for over a year,” he noted. “It was under agreement and the deal fell through.”When the brothers came along it was a perfect fit, Baehrle said.“I’m proud to be an agent to such a wonderful family who has been in the hotel business all their life,” he said. “They will take the tradition of The Forum and expand it in the future with their own thoughts and ideas and renovations.”The Khatiwalas purchased the property on March 1 for an undisclosed price.The main renovation plan deals more with cosmetic improvements to the rooms and some upgrades.“We will continue to operate The Forum in a similar-fashion, but also plan to make upgrades to certain areas to make the customer experience more enjoyable,” Khatiwala noted. “We are excited to be a part of the Forum legacy and we want to make the resort even more memorable for our guests.”The outside of The Forum, comprised of a concrete and brick façade with a mural on the side of the building and a vintage-looking sign that reads, The Forum, will stay the same, at least for the near future, Khatiwala said.The staff is also going to stay the same.“We are keeping all of the same employees. There are about 15,” Khatiwala said. “We may hire some more people. A lot of the staff have been here for many years. Some have worked there for 20 years.”He explained what attracted the brothers to the property.“What drew us to the property was its presence in Ocean City,” Khatiwala explained. “It has a great curb appeal. We were really excited about it and the ownership of it by a family who built it. It is pretty cool to be a part of that.”For more information visit The Forum website www.theforumocnj.comThe pool is a major attraction at the motel.
