         This action having been brought to recover a sum certain, to wit, the balance due on the promissory note and mortgage plus fees and costs; and Plaintiff, the United States of America, having moved for and been granted Entry of Default against Defendant Bruce R. Lavertu; and Party-in-Interest Maine Revenue Services having admitted by its Answer that its interest in the property is subsequent or subordinate in priority to the United States of America's interest and consented to this foreclosure; and it appearing that there is no genuine issue as to any material fact; and that the United States, Plaintiff herein, is entitled to such judgment on the Complaint; and that Defendant is neither an infant nor incompetent person, nor in the military service of the United States, and that the total amount due to the United States, Farm Service Agency, is $205, 213.23, it is:

         ORDERED, ADJUDGED, AND DECREED that:

         2. There is due the United States, Farm Service Agency, the sum total of $205, 213.23, comprising $156, 584.02 in principal and $48, 629.21 in interest, as of April 13, 2018, on the promissory note and mortgage due to such breach.

         3. The United States, Farm Service Agency holds first priority in the amount of $205, 213.23; Party-in Interest Maine Revenue Services holds a second priority interest by virtue of its income tax lien dated August 1, 2011, and recorded in the Northern Aroostook County Registry of Deeds in Book 1730, Page 178, in the amount of $7, 804.93 as of January 29, 2018; and there are no public utility easements held by a party in interest.

         4. The real property, which is the subject of this action and judgment, is as described in the Complaint and as described in a real estate mortgage executed by Defendant recorded in the Northern Aroostook County Registry of Deeds in Volume 1625, at Page 283.

         5. If Defendant, or his successors, heirs, or assigns does not pay the Plaintiff the amount adjudged to be due herein within 90 days from the date of this Order, a representative of the Farm Service Agency, Department of Agriculture, on behalf of the Plaintiff, shall sell the mortgaged real property at public sale pursuant to the requirements of 28 U.S.C. §§ 2001, 2002, and 2004, 14 M.R.S.A. §§ 6323, 6324, and this judgment. Notice of said sale shall be given by publishing a Notice of Sale, in a newspaper of general circulation in Lincoln County, Maine, once a week for four (4) weeks. Such notice will not be published until after the expiration of the redemption period, but not later than 90 days after the expiration of the redemption period.
