Picture: Darren England.LAND values have skyrocketed in some Brisbane suburbs with new figures revealing jumps of up to 20 per cent in a year.The best results were recorded in the outer suburbs, with Archerfield, 12km south of the CBD, leading the charge.It chalked up the biggest increase in value for the Brisbane area of 20.9 per cent over the past 12 months, with its median residential land value now $275,000.It was followed by Durack, where values went up by 19.2 per cent according to the latest Department of Natural Resources and Mines land valuation figures released today.The inner northern suburbs also recorded strong gains in land values of between 11 per cent and 16 per cent, with Kalinga’s median land value now sitting at $750,000 — $100,000 more than it was a year before. This property at 119 Nelson St, Kalinga, recently sold for $5.1m at auction. Land values in Kalinga have jumped $100,000 in one year. Picture: Ray White New Farm.Grange land values are up 12.5 per cent, while the median value of land in Wooloowin is now $620,000, compared to $540,000 a year ago.Land values dropped slightly in the Moreton Island localities of Bulwer, Cowan Cowan and Kooringal. Brisbane’s overall median land value has only increased by $5000, or 1.1 per cent, in the past year.Valuer-General Neil Bray said about 825,000 landowners would receive new valuations for their properties across the state from 9am today.“The analysis of residential sales data shows that Brisbane land is selling for similar prices that it was in the previous round of valuations, with a slight increase from $455,000 to $460,000,” Mr Bray said.“This means that the median value of residential land of 115 Brisbane suburbs has remained static, while the value of multi-unit residential land has increased slightly.”The valuations, which are used for local government rating, state land tax and state land rental purposes, take affect on June 30. This house at 90 Jean St, Grange, recently sold for $963,500. Land values in Grange have risen 12.5 per cent in one year.They take into consideration property sales since the last valuation, the impact of natural disasters, the state of the economy, the effects of the mining boom, planning and zoning changes, commodity prices and population growth.Mr Bray said the strong increases in land values for suburbs like Archerfield and Durack were a result of increased competition and affordability.He said the increases for the inner northern suburbs reflected a rising demand for well located suburbs.But Mr Bray said an increase in land values did not necessarily translate to increased rates.“Councils get access to the data about one month prior so they can start analysing the movements within land use groups,” he said.“It’s a question for local governments — it doesn’t necessarily translate.” This house at 30 Goodenia Cres, Seventeen Mile Rocks, is on the market for between $1.05m and $1.15m. Land values in the suburb rose more than 10 per cent in a year.Ray White Forest Lake principal Thanh Ngo said sale prices for homes in Durack and “definitely gone up” in the past year.Mr Ngo said the suburb’s access to the motorway and proximity to Brisbane’s CBD made it attractive to investors, while its affordability was appealing to first home buyers.“The houses aren’t as old as those in Inala (nearby) and they’re in better condition,” Mr Ngo said.Across the state, 15 of the 21 local government areas recorded increases in land values, with Winton, Mackay and Bundaberg the standouts.“There has been some strong growth in rural land, driven by stronger commodity prices in the beef and wool sectors,” Mr Bray said.

(Nov. 13) – Night two at the Duel In the Desert saw Lucas Schott and Jordan Grabouski ace Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified qualifiers at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway Dirt Track.Schott won Friday night’s first feature ahead of Ryan Ruter, Dylan Smith and John Hansen. Joining Grabouski in the top four for the nightcap were R.C. Whitwell, Hunter Marriott and Travis Hagen.All eight drivers advance to Saturday’s $7,777 to win main event. Both qualifying features paid $777 to win.Schott led the first qualifier from the drop of the green and pulled out to nearly a half straightaway lead before fifth-running Jeremy Payne, a four-time Duel winner, slowed in turn two.The race was for second following the ensuing restart as Hansen had his hands full holding off Ruter for second while David Murray Jr. motored behind in fourth.Ruter had caught Hansen for the runner-up spot before 2008 race winner Murray spun on unlucky lap 13. Twenty-sixth starting Benji LaCrosse drove by Eddie Belec and Dylan Smith to crack the top four shortly after the race resumed.Schott kept to the lower line while Ruter ran up high. The distance between the two was down to a car length but Schott kept the front spot until the 25th and final lap was scored.Smith, who’d started 17th, and Hansen both shuffled LaCrosse out of a qualifying spot before the checkers flew.It took Grabouski seven circuits to find his way to the front after starting inside row three in the nightcap, first passing Tim Ward for second and then Ricky Alvarado for the point.Alvarado exited with mechanical issues and shortly afterwards Grabouski was pulling away from Whitwell, his closet pursuit, and entering lapped traffic by midway.While Grabouski negotiated traffic and Whitwell ran a distant second, Marriott and Jeff Taylor both tried to reel in Ward for third.Taylor broke on the backstretch with five laps left. Marriott used a great restart to steal second from Ward and challenge Whitwell. Ward exited the top four with a flat before Grabouski checked out for the victory.Last-chance qualifying fills the starting grid for the main event. If not already vote eligible, the winner becomes a candidate for the 2016 Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational.1st qualifier – 1. Lucas Schott, Chatfield, Minn.; 2. Ryan Ruter, Kanawha, Iowa; 3.

New deer harvest website available for hunters

first_imgStatewide—Indiana DNR has launched a new website allowing deer hunters to access white-tailed deer harvest data as it is accumulated by the state. During the check-in process, hunters report the county of harvest, sex of deer harvested, type of land the deer was harvested on, and type of equipment used to harvest deer. This data can now be accessed and viewed by individuals using an interactive website. Visitors to the website can compare individual or multiple counties across the past five years. Results can even be limited to specific types of equipment or deer seasons.Hunters have asked for more detailed harvest data and comparisons between years, and this new website is a direct result of that feedback to DNR.  Harvest data is updated daily.Click here for the website.last_img read more

Vikings’ Kirk Cousins signs two-year contract extension

first_imgCongrats to @KirkCousins8 on agreeing to a 2 year extension with the @Vikings— Mike McCartney (@MikeMcCartney7) March 16, 2020According to a report from Ian Rappoport, the deal is worth $66 million over two years, bringing his contract to $96 million over three seasons. He reportedly is guaranteed $61 million at signing.MORE: NFL free agent tracker — Rumors, reports and more prior to the start of free agencyCousins is coming off a year in which he threw for 3,603 yards and 26 touchdowns to just six interceptions, though that yardage is a bit deceiving, considering the Vikings were a run-first team in 2019 and their offense was carried largely on the back of Dalvin Cook. Cook had more than 1,600 scrimmage yards in 2019, with 1,135 of those yards coming on the ground in 14 games.This season resulted in Cousins’ second Pro Bowl appearance; his original deal was scheduled to expire following the 2020 season. Kirk Cousins’ favorite colors must be purple and green.The Vikings starting quarterback, who signed a massive, $84 million deal prior to the 2018 season, is staying in Minnesota for another two years, per his agent. Drafted by the Redskins in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft, Cousins worked his way from backup to starter, eventually parlaying his success into the NFL’s first ever fully guaranteed deal. The bidding reportedly came down between the Vikings and Jets, and the former Michigan State Spartan chose Minnesota.Cousins also helped lead the Vikings to their first playoff win in two years, losing to the eventual NFC Champion 49ers in the divisional round this past playoff season.When finalized and official, it will be the Vikings’ first big move in what could be a busy offseason. It could include the trade of Stefon Diggs, who is reportedly on the trading block following a season in which he set a career-high in receiving yards. He has yet to notch a double-digit touchdown season in his career.last_img read more
