Southeastern Oklahoma Library System (SEOLS) is introducing a new library — the SEOLS Bookmobile.
“The SEOLS Bookmobile will expand our area coverage by bringing full library services to our small and rural communities.” Executive Director Michael Hull said. “The Bookmobile has a full physical collection of more than 2,000 items ranging from Children, Juvenile, Young Adult, Adult, and Large Print books along with audiobooks and DVDs.”
The Southeast Oklahoma Library System serves seven counties: Pittsburg, Coal, Choctaw, McCurtain, Leflore, Latimer, and Haskell with 16 libraries spread throughout the counties.
The Bookmobile will also provide standard library services such as printing, copying, scanning, faxing, WIFI, notary services, and access to two public computers, Hull said.
SEOLS Marketing Coordinator Eddie Gray said mobile outreach is a key component of the SEOLS mission.
“The Bookmobile aims to make the library accessible to people in all parts of communities and all walks of life in our system’s geographic service area,” Gray said.
The Bookmobile is 35 ft long featuring two doors, an awning, an exterior monitor and speaker, and an ADA compliant wheelchair lift for easy access. The Bookmobile exterior design features photographs of locals from across Southeast Oklahoma.
“We are so excited to bring this service to Southeast Oklahoma,” Bookmobile Manager Kaylee Stanfield said. “The Bookmobile provides a great opportunity to connect with our communities and is being met with great anticipation.”
The Bookmobile is expected to arrive by mid June. The Bookmobile will spend the summer months attending local events and is scheduled to begin its planned routes this fall. Visit www.seolibraries.com for more information on the SEOLS Bookmobile including scheduling, event appearances, and services.

If the estate is being probated, the personal representative appointed by Probate Court must assign the title to the surviving spouse. The spouse presents the assigned title and a copy of the personal representative’s Letter of Authority document to apply for a title in their name at a Secretary of State office.
If the current title is in both your name and the deceased’s name with the legend “Full Rights To Survivor” printed on it, then all that is needed to transfer the vehicle into just your name is the title and a copy of the death certificate.

A title with a lien on it may be transferred only if the loan is paid off and a statement or letter of termination is provided by the lienholder, or if a letter of authorization from the lienholder approving the transfer is submitted with the title application.

Cameron Sperance — Boston.com correspondent
April 6, 2022 11:19 am
Corporate landlords might be the only type of buyer shying away from the competitive battle royale that is securing a deed on a home in Greater Boston these days.
Don’t bank on this absence lasting indefinitely, say those in local and national real estate circles.
Real estate investors — defined as any institution or business that purchases real estate — bought 18.4 percent of the US homes purchased in the last three months of 2021, a record high, according to Redfin. This accounts for roughly 80,000 homes valued at a combined $50 billion. The hefty pickup in investment residential sales comes amid a national housing shortage (we were nearly 4 million homes behind heading into 2021, according to Freddie Mac) that is sending prices skyrocketing in metropolitan areas of all sizes.
Local real estate brokers, sales representatives, and analysts say Greater Boston’s dearth of housing stock and hyper-competitive environment — a market with stunningly-over-the-asking-price bids that make a deal unfeasible for investment teams — has generally kept investor buyers out of the region.
But never say never.
“The message I have is it’s coming,’’ said Mike DelPrete, a global real estate technology strategist and scholar-in-residence at the University of Colorado Boulder. “These are not companies that were founded to say, ‘We’re going to stay in Phoenix and Atlanta for our entire corporate life.’’’
Investors favor low- and mid-priced homes, making Sun Belt markets with a lower cost of living ideal for a residential shopping spree. Investors posted their highest market shares in Atlanta, Charlotte, N.C., and Jacksonville — all part of metropolitan areas with median home sale prices below the national median ($383,000, according to Redfin) seen at the end of last year.
It’s easier for investment groups to achieve scale in regions like those compared with Greater Boston, where the median single-family home sale price was $755,000 in February. This is a nearly 17 percent jump from a year ago, according to the Greater Boston Association of Realtors.
Higher prices and the limited availability of developable land in Greater Boston is the same headwind keeping out single-family rental housing, typically what investor buyers offer with homes they purchase.
Critics argue this isn’t a business the region should necessarily welcome. Investor buyers are accused of gobbling up homes when the housing supply is already limited and of pushing rents higher. Investors counter that they’re a small part of the overall residential housing market and that a failure to increase the nation’s housing supply following the Great Recession is really to blame for soaring prices.
New England wasn’t entirely absent from the 40 US metro areas with the top share of investor home sales in the fourth quarter of last year. Providence made the list, but with only 6 percent of sales going to investors. (It was the smallest share of all the metropolitan areas Redfin mentioned in its analysis.)
Providence, which had a median sale price purchased by investors at just under $270,000 in the fourth quarter, is also in a different price bracket than Greater Boston to the north.
“I just don’t see real players on an institutional level at the prices that these places are going for’’ in Greater Boston, said Charlie Ring, a broker at Coldwell Banker Realty.
Greater Boston’s regional housing shortage has ushered in an era of off-market deal-making and jaw-dropping bidding wars — a home in Cambridge last summer went for nearly $1 million over its list price. Nearly 160 homes in Boston sold for at least $100,000 over their respective list prices in the first six weeks of this year, according to Redfin.
That is an entirely different ballgame compared with what is happening in more affordable Sun Belt markets.
“Investors are looking at metrics and rent, and they have an internal rate of return in mind. They can’t outbid you time and time again to make that work,’’ said Aaron Jodka, a Boston-based director of research of US Capital Markets for Colliers. “It’s hard to do that in a place like Boston, so that single-family rental story has not been as prevalent here as in Phoenix, Florida, and the Carolinas.’’
The need for housing in the area makes it competitive enough without factoring in major companies like Toronto-based Tricon Residential, American Homes 4 Rent, and Invitation Homes — backed by investment and financial giants like Blackrock and Blackstone.
“There are a lot of dynamics that I’ve seen exclude some of these larger entities trying to buy single-family houses and compete with people who are desperate,’’ Ring said. “I say this to buyers often: ‘There are people who need houses worse than you.’ They’re going to be ready to make more evasive maneuvers.’’
There are other ways investor buyers aren’t finding much luck, both in Boston as well as nationally.
Zillow pulled the plug on its Zillow Offers iBuying — or instant buying — platform late last year after the company revealed it lost more than $300 million buying homes at prices higher than it expected to sell them. Zillow’s model involved buying homes directly from owners and relisting the properties after a round of light renovations. The company blamed ongoing supply chain issues for bogging down the home-flip timeline.
Massachusetts is tougher for investor buyers to gain much traction compared with Sun Belt states because the Bay State allows attorneys to run closings only in person. Lawmakers allowed more efficient closing measures like mobile notary services only during the pandemic state of emergency.
“The process is more layered,’’ said Melvin A. Vieira Jr., president of the Greater Boston Association of Realtors and an agent with RE/Max Destiny.
But he didn’t say the door is entirely shut on investors entering the Boston residential sector. It’s just a little more nuanced.
There has been a wave of deals, typically through limited liability corporations, on two- and three-decker properties in neighborhoods like Charlestown, South Boston, and Dorchester that lead Vieira to believe investors — albeit smaller ones — are gaining more footing in the city.
Others like DelPrete think it is too soon to write off other aspects of investors in the residential space, like companies serving as middlemen to help buyers better compete in a market where all-cash offers are increasingly common.
These startups include companies like Flyhomes (which is active in Massachusetts) that are more about fronting buyers the cash to buy a home or purchase one on the buyer’s behalf and turn around and sell it to them.
“An interesting way to look at that is how it’s funded by Wall Street with billions of dollars of venture capital with these companies,’’ DelPrete said. “It’s kind of like Wall Street is solving a problem created by Wall Street.’’

In this role, she has ensured elections are secure and accessible, and dramatically improved Secretary of State driver and customer experiences for all Michiganders.
Benson oversaw Michigan’s 2020 presidential election, which drew record-breaking turnout – 5.5 million voters – and was the most secure election in state history. She implemented new voting rights for all eligible Michiganders prior to the election, including the right to vote absentee, and oversaw more than 250 audits after the election, all of which affirmed its integrity and accuracy.
Benson also transformed the customer service operations of the Secretary of State’s office. She doubled the number of services available online, installed more than 160 self-service stations statewide, mostly at grocery stores, and ended the take-a-ticket-and-wait system that had resulted in hours-long lines at offices for years. Now, most transactions are conducted without an office visit at all and when residents do visit an office, they are in and out in an average of 20 minutes or less.
A graduate of Harvard Law School and expert on civil rights law, education law and election law, Benson served as dean of Wayne State University Law School in Detroit. When she was appointed dean at age 36, she became the youngest woman in U.S. history to lead a top-100, accredited law school. She continues to serve as vice chair of the advisory board for the Levin Center at Wayne Law, which she founded with former U.S. Sen. Carl Levin. Previously, Benson was an associate professor and associate director of Wayne Law’s Damon J. Keith Center for Civil Rights.
Benson is the author of State Secretaries of State: Guardians of the Democratic Process, the first major book on the role of the secretary of state in enforcing election and campaign finance laws. She is also a co-founder and former president of Military Spouses of Michigan, a network dedicated to providing support and services to military spouses and their children.
In 2015, she became one of the youngest women in history to be inducted into the Michigan Women’s Hall of Fame. In 2022, she was named a recipient of the John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award for her work in protecting democracy.
 
Task Force on Women in Sports
Secretary Benson is the Chair of Michigan’s Task Force on Women in Sports, created by Governor Gretchen Whitmer in 2019 to advance opportunities for women in Michigan as athletes and sports leaders.

2. Notice on the Offering of Common Shares (Actions) of the Company, Including Common Shares Represented by Swedish Depository Receipts

 

 
 
 
 
Item 1
 

 
Dear owner in Millicom,
 
7 for 10 Rights Offer at SEK 106.00 per new SDR or USD 10.61 per new Share
 
 
On November 12, 2021, Millicom announced the acquisition of the remaining 45% equity stake in our joint venture business in Guatemala (“Tigo Guatemala”) for USD 2.2 billion in cash. With this transaction, we now own a 100% equity interest in Tigo Guatemala and have consolidated our position as the leading telecommunication service provider in Central America. At the time of the acquisition, the funding was provided by a group of leading international banks. The bridge funding was intended to be refinanced with approximately USD 1.5 billion of new long-term debt and approximately USD 750 million of new equity, which Millicom is now seeking to raise via a rights offering (the “Rights Offer”).
 
The purpose of this letter is to explain the rationale for launching the Rights Offer and why the Board of Directors and the executive management team1 believe this is in the best interests of Millicom equity holders. The letter also provides details of how you can participate in the Rights Offer.
 
Under the terms of the Rights Offer, Millicom is offering seven new Swedish Depository Receipts (“SDRs”) for every ten SDR rights owned at a subscription price of SEK 106.00 per new SDR, and seven new common shares for every ten common share rights owned at a subscription price of USD 10.61 per common share. As a part of the Rights Offer, equity holders of record on May 23, 2022 will receive preferential subscription rights. If you hold SDRs, please refer to the last page in this letter for a description of how to proceed in order to exercise your SDR rights.
 
 
Tigo Guatemala is the most profitable business within the Millicom Group, with an EBITDA2 margin of 53.6% in 2021. The acquisition of the remaining 45% equity interest was in line with our stated inorganic capital allocation strategy, which includes acquisitions of the remaining minority interests owned by third parties in our operations, when we believe those transactions can be executed in an accretive manner. In recent years, Tigo Guatemala has grown to become the biggest contributor to the Group’s cash flow generation.
 

 
 
 
Over the last five years, Tigo Guatemala has proven a strong growth track record with revenue growing at a compounded annual rate of over four percent and EBITDA increasing at a compounded annual growth rate of over six percent. In addition, there has been a sustained growth through the pandemic.
 
The Guatemalan market is an underpenetrated two-player mobile and fixed telecommunications market, where Tigo Guatemala is the number one market player in Mobile and Broadband, and the second largest in Pay TV3. The Guatemalan economy as a whole has shown resiliency and was one of the least impacted economies during the pandemic, and the currency, the Guatemala Quetzal, has been very stable compared to the US dollar for the last 20 years.
 
Finally, the purchase price of the remaining 45% in Tigo Guatemala represented an attractive valuation given the high cash flow profile of the business.
 
 
As a result of the acquisition, Millicom fully consolidates Tigo Guatemala’s results and balance sheet. In 2021, Tigo Guatemala’s revenue grew 6.5% to USD 1.6 billion, EBITDA rose 10.2% to USD 857 million and operating cash flow (“OCF”) increased 10.4% to USD 660 million.4
 
 
Several of our largest institutional shareholders have already informed us of their intentions to fully subscribe for their respective pro rata shares in the Rights Offer. Additionally, I plan to exercise my rights in full, and all our directors and all members of our executive team have indicated that they also plan to exercise their rights in full, except for one director and one member of the executive team who have indicated that they plan to partially exercise their rights.
 
I would like to thank all our equity holders for your trust, and I hope that you will consider exercising your preferential subscription rights to further strengthen Millicom and take part in our continued growth journey.5

CEO, Millicom
