Cleveland Habitat's 143rd Home Dedication Honoring The Mulcahy Family Is Tuesday

Friday, November 6, 2020

Habitat for Humanity of Cleveland will hold a Home Dedication Ceremony on Tuesday in honor of new Habitat homeowners, Kyle and Kelly Mulcahy and their children. The Mulcahy home marks the 143rd home built in Bradley County and is named the Leaders Build home.

There will be a 10 a.m. ceremony that will be live on Habitat for Humanity of Cleveland’s
Facebook page. 

The Mulcahys have hopes to reach common goals of most families, like paying off debts, staying debt free and owning their own home. To realize those goals, Kyle and his wife Kelly, know that if you want something in life you must invest hard work. The Mulcahy family also wants to achieve these goals for their three daughters, Aurora, Athena and Amelia.

With only one income and the cost of raising three energetic daughters, it has been difficult for the Mulcahys to make ends meet. They live in what could be described as an overcrowded space, with one bedroom for their family of five, and it was difficult to even imagine home ownership. However, the Mulcahy family was given a large glimmer of hope when they heard about the Habitat’s program through Mr. Mulcahy's cousin who is a Habitat homeowner.

Mr. and Mrs. Mulcahy have worked had on their finances through the Be Smart About Money program and have also gained a lot of their “sweat equity” hours building their home and working in the ReStore.

Mr. Mulcahy said, “The Restore hours are great, and it is a humbling feeling to know that you are not just helping yourself, but others as well.”

When thinking about home ownership, Mrs. Mulcahy said, “Not only will this be my home, my sweet home, but it will have more sentimental value than monetary, because my hands have taken part in building it from the foundation up.”

Sponsors for the Women Build include: Andy Anderson, Athens Federal Foundation, Keith and Cathy Barrett, Bradley Veterinary Hospital, Buddy's bar-b-q, Cleveland/Bradley Chamber Foundation, Thomas M. Collins, Community Foundation of Cleveland and Bradley County, First Cumberland Presbyterian Church, First Horizon Bank, Father Mike Nolan, Habitat Family Fundraiser, Habitat for Humanity International, Insurance Inc., Keystone Solutions, Law Offices of Andrew B. Morgan, Lee University, Logan-Thompson, P.C., MCA, Jeff and Kathy Morelock, Dr. Walter and Barbara Peterson, Pinnacle Financial Partners, Jared Powers, Regions Bank, Representative Dan Howell and Senator Mike Bell.

County Employees Need A Bonus Too

A few weeks ago we learned that Sheriff Jim Hammond was asking for a second raise. Earlier this year Hamilton County employees were notified that "due to COVID-19" there would be no raises for employees of any kind this year. I guess Mr. Hammond didnt get that memo about no raises. Why is it that some employees will be getting a raise and others are not? That doesn't really ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: A Thanksgiving Lesson

We had a strict rule at our house in my childhood that whenever there was a festive dinner of any type, politics were never allowed to be broached nor discussed, and the only time religion was ever mentioned was during the blessing itself. So, I laughed from a lifetime of experience when I heard on Saturday that one of my dearest friends, suddenly surrounded by flaming lefties who ... (click for more)
