Kent Conrad and Chris Dodd were told from the start they were getting VIP mortgage discounts from one of the nation's largest lenders, the official who handled their loans has told Congress in secret testimony. Both senators have said that at the time the mortgages were being written they didn't know they were getting unique deals from Countrywide Financial Corp., the company that went on to lose billions of dollars on home loans to credit-strapped borrowers. Dodd still maintains he got no preferential treatment Dodd got two Countrywide mortgages in 2003, refinancing his home in Connecticut and another residence in Washington. Conrad's two Countrywide mortgages in 2004 were for a beach house in Delaware and an eight-unit apartment building in North Dakota. Dodd heads the Banking Committee. Conrad chairs the Budget Committee.

ByThaion Brittain The Herald-Zeitung The New Braunfels City Council voted unanimously to issue $9.5 million in debt Monday night, setting the stage for a number of projects to move forward. The vote authorizes city financial officers to issue certificates of obligation to fund costs for a variety of projects and city improvements, including a new human resources and financial sdtware system, equipment for public works, police vehicles and construction and equipment for a new fire station. "We are very pleased with the results we got on this debt issuance," said Debi Korinchock, chief financial officer for New Braunfels. "We came out very favorably in the market which restilts in a cheaper cost to us and the taxpayers." Korinchock's comments referred to an unusually low average interest rate, 3.99 percent, the city was able to secure for the $9.5 million. In fact, the low interest rate freed the dty from purchasing $30,000 in bond insurance, said Mark McLiney of Southwest Securities, who worked with the dty on this year's debt issuance. The presentation to the council includ^ an itemized list of projects. Leading the list was $3.5 million for a new fire station, $2.6 million in property purchases for municipal facilities, and $1 million for a human resources/finandal software system.
