Tax sale wreaks havoc with
Cedar Lake woman´s life

The Times [NW Indiana], by Bill Dolan

Original Article

Posted By:US Veteran, 2/17/2013 1:05:24 PM

CEDAR LAKE | Blind and living on little more than her Social Security check, Dolores Pittman soon may be homeless. Lake County officials have mistakenly traded away the plot of land on which she had been living for 54 years in a tax delinquency sale. "I got an eviction notice Thursday. I don´t know what I´m going to do. Besides being scared that I don´t have a place to live, no one wants to take my cats. Being without my cats ... that would probably just kill me," she said.

Comments:
This woman was also charged ´´rent´´ for the land by the county who never owned.

Lake County Indiana is the ´´south end´´ of Cook County Illinois.

Need I say more?

Republican Senators, Congressmen from Indiana - wake up and help this lady. Reach out, organize media and make this issue. These kind of stations are where the GOP can show they care.

Not sure what Cook County IL has to do with Lake County IN. Nothing as far as I can tell. Don´t get the connection.

Lake County Indiana is home to Gary, Indiana and is considered a democrat stronghold, much like Cook County, Illinois, which it borders. And like Cook County it can be counted on to provide the necessary votes to get someone like Obama elected. It´s known for reporting its votes last in most elections. "How many votes for Obama do we have? How many do you need?"

FTA it looks like she is legally out of luck. Something went wrong long ago in the paperwork. It was probably unintended.

But Indiana law should sort it out. That eviction notice is the sort of thing that a judge can stop in ten minutes. Then the whole case can be considered with no one tossed out on the street.

Pullins is going to feel a lot of pressure to let her off. But some people want the money and won´t relent. The title to the house itself is a red herring.

WAG. A flaw or ambiguity will somehow be found in the tax sale of three years ago.. Pittman will buy the land for a few $ at the new sale.

Guessing is fun.

This is an odd situation where a church group owned the land under the woman´s house, at least for some time.

There is a town in NJ, Mt Tabor, where that situation still exists. If you buy a house there, you own the house -- but not the land beneath or around it. All the land in the town still belongs to the "Methodist Camp Meeting Association."

So many of the elderly and disabled are trying to live on less than $1000 a month. If they are single, they live in poverty.

Yet, during the SOTU address, Zippy talked about raising minimum wage to $9.00 an hour and US helping worldwide poverty.

Charity begins at home, like ´you know´ the USA and citizens that actually paid into the system.

When U.S. combat deaths drop to zero

The United States has been at war in Afghanistan longer than any conflict in our history. Regardless of what one might think of the war in terms of strategic value, it has been a brutal, deadly conflict, seemingly without end. But as U.S. forces prepare for the conflict’s end, we can already see the changes to U.S. casualty rates. Indeed, the month that just ended last night, March 2014, marked an extraordinary milestone: as Hayes Brown noted, it was “the first time in more than a decade that there were zero U.S. fatalities among American troops engaging in combat.” In Iraq, the

Bay Bridge´s $9.4 million
temporary bike path to be razed

The Bay Area Toll Authority spent $9.4 million to build a temporary entrance so the Bay Bridge´s bike path could be ready when the new eastern span opened to traffic in September. And now - after less than seven months - the half-mile-long connector is being torn down to make way for a new, permanent gateway. That puts the cost to provide temporary bike and pedestrian access to the bridge at about $47,000 a day.

Flout Gun Registration Law

Everyone knew there would be some gun owners flouting the law that legislators hurriedly passed last April, requiring residents to register all military-style rifles with state police by Dec. 31. But few thought the figures would be this bad. That 50,000 figure could be as little as 15 percent of the rifles classified as assault weapons owned by Connecticut residents, according to estimates by people in the industry, including the Newtown-based National Shooting Sports Foundation. No one has anything close to definitive figures, but the most conservative estimates place the number of unregistered assault weapons well above 50,000, and perhaps

Police are investigating death threats against 5-year-old Disney Channel actress Mia Talerico. The "Good Luck Charlie" starlet has been the target of anonymous harassment and threats against her life posted online. "Good Luck Charlie," one of Disney´s most popular shows, recently made headlines for featuring the first openly gay couple on the network in a Jan. 26 episode. A lesbian couple was worked into the story line — and managed to cause outrage among conservative parenting groups — but the uproar will only be around one episode. It is unclear if any of the threats against Talerico were made in

The journalists at ABC News offered yet another high profile experiment to terrify the parents of America into not owning guns. In an hour-long special on Friday night, Diane Sawyer and David Muir hid pink guns at the playground of an elementary school in an effort to see if young girls would play with them. Unsurprisingly, the young children did. The Young Guns program also included the obvious revelation that firearms shouldn´t be concealed in backpacks and with candy. Diane Sawyer narrated, "For more than a decade, there has been a powder pink gun on the market." Referencing the location of

The Fire Island resort of Saltaire wants to seize private property — using taxpayer money. World War II vet Frank Whitney is locked in a legal battle with officials who want to take his Saltaire Market grocery by eminent domain in order to build their own updated version. And the upscale village may increase property taxes to do it, raising as much as $2.5 million to buy and rebuild the market, which was damaged during Hurricane Sandy. Whitney’s family says it wants to fix the store — the village’s only commercial property — and has the money to do so, but it accuses

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like
