Kim Strong York Daily Record Published 7:07 PM EDT Jul 24, 2019 YORK, Pa. – Dee and Bill Dolan lit 30 candles around the brick patio in their yard to symbolize each year of their son's life. Little Billy loved Led Zeppelin, so "The Ocean" and "In the Light" played from a Bluetooth speaker on his birthday, June 20, while his father and stepmother grieved. Pain lingers over the Dover, Pennsylvania family that is no more, three of their four children tragically gone, justice unfulfilled in two deaths, and the circumstances of those deaths still unresolved. A recent comment online after a news story about the Dolans described them as “terrible parents.” It came from someone they don’t know, but Dee Dolan understands the lack of sympathy. She might feel the same way, she said, if she didn’t know their story. One big happy family Dee Wolford and Bill Dolan grew up in the same … [Read more...] about Pennsylvania: Dee and Bill Dolan lose three sons in nine years

Tens of thousands of current and former partners of members of the armed forces could be missing out on National Insurance credits worth £250 a year. The good news is that, as long as you're under 65, you can claim them back for any of the past 44 years. This applies even if the relationship has since ended, provided you spent time overseas thanks to your other half's posting. As many as 20,000 people could qualify for the credits. Pensions minister Guy Opperman told Mirror Money the Government values the “incredible sacrifice” made by both our armed services and their families who may need to move abroad during their service. “These credits ensure spouses or civil partners who have been unable to work during those times do not lose out on entitlement to the State Pension.” The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has now updated the guidance surrounding the credits on its website , in a bid to push those entitled to them to claim now. Who qualifies … [Read more...] about Troops’ partners can get £250 a year extra back dated to 1975
LONDON (Reuters) - Lloyds Banking Group has given up hope of a profit-boosting rise in interest rates before 2020, Britain’s biggest mortgage lender said on Thursday, after surprise one-off costs led it to miss quarterly earnings forecasts despite robust underlying profits. FILE PHOTO: A woman looks at her phone as she walks past a branch of Lloyds bank in London, Britain, July 20, 2018. REUTERS/Toby Melville The bank reported first-quarter after-tax profits of 1.2 billion pounds, up from 1.17 billion pounds in the same period last year but below analysts’ average forecast of 1.39 billion.

At 0755 GMT, the stock was down 0.7 percent at 63.18 pence. Lloyds also reported a further 100 million pound charge to cover … [Read more...] about One-off costs hit Lloyds Bank profit as rate hike hopes fade
