News Entire border patrol unit in North Hamgyong Province placed into quarantine following “paratyphoid” outbreak RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR [imText1]I had ever taken a high-speed train (KTX) for an emergency business to the local area. Although it was 300km at speed, the inside of the train was quiet and comfortable. I sat down on a counter-sit to save some money, yet it was not uncomfortable at all. The train journey reminded me of the train to Heasan, in which I struggled to get in N. Korea in the mid of 1990. In 1996, it took at least 5 or 7 days to go to Heasan from Danchun, South Hamkyung province. I cannot forget the days when I had done cooper business and gotten on the train to Haesan to avoid the watch and violence of the police. In 1996 when all people died of starvation, I did cooper business for living. Besides me, so many people got on the train to do cooper business. During that time, the price of cooper was 60 won that was sold at 250 in Haesan, Yangkangdo. I brought 15-20kg of cooper to Haesan with my mother and my brother at once. To easily carry cooper, we cut cooper into several pieces and wrap them with clothes like magazine and wore them. At that time, cooper sale was illegal. Since it was to dig out and sell cooper to China, the N. Korean government cracked down cooper business. If being detected, they are confiscated by the police or train staffs as well as suffering a bitter insult. However, my family stuck to the cooper business for our living. No cooper business was no living. In one freezing winter, we went up on the ceiling of the train to Chungjin from Baekam to avoid the crack-down of the police and stayed up on it all night. Chungjin from Baekam was the strictest crack-down area. On the ceiling were around 20 people like me. We did not even stretch out our back because of many tunnels and risked being frozen to death. We writhed for living on the ceiling. Digging Cooper Is more Important than the US MissilesOne day a man who lied down on a side stood up to warm his body, yet he knocked his head against a high-tension wire and was bounced out. His company cried out “he died”, yet the train kept running. The night train ran and ran regardless his life. The life of people was like that of flies. At the same time so many people joined the cooper digging in 1995~1998, many factories except some military factories were not operated. Small and middle factories became mere carcasses. Some factory workers even said that, “Even US missile attack and war could not make the factories like this”. Good electromotors were disjointed and complete machines were dismantled to pieces and all kinds of metals were picked out and sold to China. In 1996, a whole big chimney of Heungnam Fertilizer Complex was picked out in a few months because of its zinc surface. The chimney was exchanged into wheat flour made by China and finally disappeared as whole. Electronic wires were not exceptions. This winter would be more freezing to the North Korean people, because of the international sanctions caused by the nuclear test. Most of metals were taken off during the great famine period 10 years ago, so that they could not survive this time.

Institutional Property Advisors (IPA), a brokerage division of Marcus & Millichap serving the needs of institutional and major private investors, has arranged the sale of Colter Park, a 384-unit apartment community in Phoenix. The terms of the sale were not disclosed.IPA senior director Steve Gebing and Marcus & Millichap vice president investments Cliff David advised the seller, an institutional pension fund advisor. The buyer is a limited partnership formed by The Sheiner Group of Westmount, Quebec, Canada.“Colter Park enjoys a commanding position in the city of Phoenix Infill Development District and within Transit-Oriented Zoning Overlay District One (TOD-1), an area that is experiencing a lifestyle regeneration through millions of dollars in gentrification efforts leading to unprecedented rental demand,” says Gebing. “The property’s seller implemented strategic capital expenditures to increase revenue and attract and retain an upgraded resident profile.”“These measures have led to above-market physical occupancy with diminishing rental concessions, and further opportunities to enhance revenue remain,” adds David.The property is located at 909 West Colter St. within walking distance of the Melrose District/7th Avenue/Camelback Valley Metro light rail station. Central Avenue, the major north-south arterial road connecting the Uptown/Midtown office corridor with downtown Phoenix, is approximately one mile east of the community. Camelback Corridor, one of the region’s premier urban centers and Phoenix’s most well-known and desirable high-end office destination with more than 9 million square feet of multi-tenant office space is nearby. The Biltmore area of the Camelback Corridor, one of the city’s premier upscale shopping, dining and financial districts is approximately three-and-a-half miles east of Colter Park, and Christown Spectrum Mall, a 1.4 million-square-foot power center, is approximately one-and-a-half miles northwest of the property.Developed by Levitt & Sons in 1972 on nearly 12 acres, Colter Park features studio and one-, or two-bedroom apartment homes. Interiors have new kitchen and bathroom cabinets with brushed-nickel hardware, new countertops, all-electric kitchen appliances, upgraded lighting and plumbing fixtures, two-tone paint, upgraded baseboards and wide-plank wood-style flooring.Community amenities include two swimming pools and a spa, a stand-alone leasing office, clubhouse, fitness center, clubroom with a fully appointed kitchen and business center, and four laundry facilities, including one laundry lounge with controlled access entry, new card-operated washer and dryer equipment and a wall-mounted flat-screen television. The main pool area is a Wi-Fi hot spot and the common areas feature barbecue grills and pet stations. Colter Park also features controlled-access gated entry, keyed-entry pedestrian gates and lighted cantilever covered parking.

Twenty golfers ventured out to take on the challenge of Plutaluang North and West nines from the yellow tees. The weather was on our side as the sun was out and a slight breeze kept the mercury down.The course was in tip-top condition and as usual it was busy with quite a lot of golfers enjoying not only the great playing conditions but also the very reasonable green fee. The greens here have become a lot slicker than in the past and today they played reasonably true, considering the constant heavy traffic. As per usual, the gnarly crabgrass lies took a toll on most of the field.Two flights catered to today’s numbers and in the A-Flight John Edwards took top spot on count back over the unlucky Keith Buchanan, both with 41 points each. Coming in third and again getting through on count back was Denis Steele.B-Flight saw Frank Riley come up trumps yet again with 41 points while Tony Cook greeted the judges in second place and Cavin Kenyon completed the podium in third.From left: Eric Black, Frank Riley, Colm Lawlor and John Edwards.
