La Mesa Mourns Seau As 'Part Of Our Family'

Former Charger Junior Seau died after an apparent suicide authorities said this morning and his fan and friends -- including many in La Mesa -- were left grieving the tragic loss.

Seau, who lived on Mt. Helix during his playing days with the Chargers, was a frequent contributor to local charities. The City of La Mesa had the Sports Complex at Parkway Middle School named for Seau and he was a frequent visitor to fundraising events and ceremonies associated with the field.

""He was always here for us,'' La Mesa Mayor Art Madrid said after hearing of Seau's death. "He was part of the family in this town.''

Seau, whose brother Sevaii is a popular La Mesa coach and artist, was found dead in Oceanside after a report of shooting. Friends were gathering to support Sevaii, who lives with his two sons in La Mesa.

City officials said many other local fans and supporters were asking permission to leave flowers at the Seau Sports Complex off Dallas Street. City Manager Dave Witt said the city was trying to set up a memorial area near the scoreboard at the parking lot end of the field.

The city is working with school officials to arrange for a place for people wanting to leave a commemoration.

The foreclosure picture is looking better, not worse, than it was one year ago. The share of loans in the foreclosure process during the July-to-September period fell to 2.4 percent of all loans, from 3.1 percent one year earlier.

If you’re in the market to buy a home, then now might be the perfect time to seal the deal on your purchase, as there are several conditions working in the favor of home buyers. Firstly, gains in home prices have slowed down and mortgage rates historically remain low. Furthermore, loan requirements are softening, and with fewer buyers around the holidays, there could be less competition and more bargaining power for buyers.
