Apparently I touched a nerve with you.
You are to be congratulated on helping with your family members. We have
none in SBP; they are all dead or moved away from SBP years ago.

I *am* trying to focus on one of those truly in need; i.e. my mother.
Sadly Deborah, you come across as one of those who want to be the elite and
believe "I've got mine; to hell with you". You have neither compassion nor
understanding for those not as fortunate as yourself.
Here's a fact: My mom was underinsured on flood as I stated many people
probably were. She has applied for the Road Home program. The Road Home
program under appraised her house according to the appraisal we had done by
John Scurich and we are appealing said Road Home appraisal. Unfortunately,
we cannot do diddly squat until that is resolved.

And my whole point, to be blunt, is this: You can't shit money. Well, the
Feds can but that's another story for another forum/blog.

Ah it was a truly grand time to be alive then wasn't it? When my father was
born in 1926 his father was probably making all of $1.00/day at manual
labor. You didn't need insurance to go to the hospital and you probably had
the local friendly neighborhood hardware store that would let you run a tab
if you were in dire straits such as a disaster, house burned down or
whatever. You could also run a tab at the local grocery store and pay on it
as you could. Sadly, those days don't exist anymore but it's fun to look
back, isn't it?
If the current regime decides it wants to tear down this old woman's house
because she cannot fix it according to their schedule, fine and good.
Personally I could give a rat's ass. SBP is not a place for old people with
health issues anyway and that apparently is not going to change anytime
soon, it appears. It seems the administration is wanting to back off the
idea of the hospital district concept because there has been no publicity
about that lately and I've not seen anything that indicates that idea is
Congratulations to you for moving forward and may good fortune attend all
Jim, I suggest you aim your frustration and anger about the
people are in and focus on real solutions for those who need help
of sarcastic remarks for those who overcame adversity. Many of us on
forum have and are still directly helping/ supporting/ and providing
for relatives or friends or doing it through charitable
organizations. As I
said in an earlier posting, maybe plan b for those in dire straits
turn to relatives, friends, and charities if govt isn't there to
assistance to the level they need. That's how my ancestors in
Parish overcame the devastation of the civil war and the Great Flood
1927. when there was no help from the govt to replace all they lost
insurance of any kind. My whole point is that waiting and doing
not solve the problem, it will only lead to the problem being solved
as the world mo ves on. ddk
