Where is Ty Pennington and Co. when she needs them????? Might still be able to make that happen if we get on a letter writing campaign to ABC television.
Newsflash - spend 25k moving your belongings and yourself on a 1st-class ticket to pittsburgh. buy home for 20k, invest remaining in interest-bearing CD - Live off interest and small fixed income comfortably - why live in the most expensive town in the US and then complain? do what the rest of us do when we can't stay on the porch with the big dogs. Do you know how many people would kill for 300k at her age to live on/ how many have less than 30k? Someone please help this woman get settled in a place she can be secure, and enjoy the money from her demolished home.
Pittsburg? When she has lived here for years? This may be her home area; her familiar neighborhood. That also has value
Jeeze... when will we all reject the "system" telling us when, where, how we can live... If this dear lady wants to stay in a falling down house, let her.. Oh now, Our City, like the State and Feds , know better how to handle everything.. For G/// Sake, we give millions of free money to non-producing welfare sucking folks, but can't seek out help for this lady for a new roof ?? I dare say, that for the 19 K "Charge to her"... the City could have put a roof on the house.. Jeeze... where did our freedoms go ? Our City Govt. is but a symbol of where our Govt. Society is going...
YOU/ME/US are next..
Is this the best the Voice can do? Re-visit old stories to try and stir things up? Your credibility is gone!
Nice to have a followup story after the heart wrenching one in February.
+1 on the Ty Pennington idea.
Where the heck can you get a rebuild of a collapsing roof for 19k? Once the City touches that structure, its now liable for it which means making it code compliant and structurally sound. The 250k sounds more realistic if you consider water damage to load bearing members, and making everything else up to code.
She can move to Antioch, California, get a house for $50 to 100k, and still be reasonably close to any relatives in the Bay Area.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
