May 20th, Kris White was involved in an unfortunate crash at Ed Fountain BMX. Kris was transported to UMC medical center where afer X-rays and CT-scans it was determined that he had 3 fractures in the vertebrae of his cervical spine, C4.C5 & C6. He was immediately taken into surgery that night and came out of surgery around 6am the next morning... Kris was originally thought to be a quad or paraplegic when he came in.
Since then a lot has happened and Kris has fought his way back to being able to move his arms, legs and even walk with assistance. Kris is currently in treatment at Craig Hospital in Englewood, CO which specializes in spine injury rehabilitation.

REID INTRODUCES AMENDMENT TO EXTEND TRANSACTION CLOSING DATE FOR FIRST TIME HOMEBUYERS
Amendment would extend first time homebuyer tax credit transaction closing date from June 30th to September 30th
Washington, DC – Nevada Senator Harry Reid today joined with Senators Johnny Isakson of Georgia and Chris Dodd of Connecticut to introduce an amendment to the American Jobs and Closing Tax Loopholes Act of 2010 that would extend the deadline for closing home purchases in order to qualify for the first time homebuyer tax credit. The current deadline for purchases made using the popular tax credit is June 30, 2010. There is growing concern that because of the time it takes for banks to complete transactions such as short sales, many of these home purchases would not be complete before the deadline through no fault of the homebuyer. The Reid, Isakson and Dodd amendment would extend the deadline to September 30, 2010, to ensure the completion of the sales.
“The first time homebuyer tax credit was very popular and successful in Nevada,” Reid said. “In addition to making it easier for thousands of Nevadans to purchase their first home, it helped reduce the sitting inventory of homes. By extending the transaction deadline, we can ensure that everyone taking advantage of this credit can complete the purchase of their new home.”
