    The sh*t has hit the fan ....

    The sh*t has hit the fan with me and the city of Jacksonville, NC.
    After all the heartache and BS they have put me through over building my ramp, their final decision was, they CAN'T build me a ramp unless I pay $4500.00 and their not happy with the makeshift one I have now.

    This was after I signed paperwork stating that the cost would be forgiven and I would owe NOTHING.
    They gave me a BS excuse that HUD wouldn't allow it. (just like all their other lies and bs they told me in the past)
    BS, I have a right to access to my home where ever I live.

    The girl I have been working with (she's been out the last 2 months to cancer) came back last week and the first thing she said was "Is Ms. Bell's ramp built?".
    Well, you can guess the "Duh" answer she got from the supervisor. (the poor womans been pulling for me with no luck).
    She finally told me to file a complaint with the City of Jacksonville.
    I did and the newspaper is interested in the BS I've been through and their investigating and writing a story about how I've been treated, and how many more folks in this town are possibly treated the same way.
    The reporter said she's noticed that the handicap are pretty much treated like 2nd class citizens around here.

    I have successfully opened a large can of worms and I hope I end up spreading them all over town.
    I'll post the story when it is published.

    I love it! Way to show them that you're not a second or third class citizen! I love it when we 'stand up' for ourselves.
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    "I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose to risk my significance; to live so that which comes to me as seed goes to the next as blossom and that which comes to me as blossom, goes on as fruit."

    Thanks Jen, I'll hang on to the link and keep him in mind. But, in this case the ADA can't help. I called them Friday. They told me they only handle businesses and public access issues.
    When it comes to home/living conditions, I have to contact HUD.
    Getting through to HUD is like trying to get the President to take your personal phone call. That, or the person on the line can barely speak a lick of English and your can't understand 3/4 of what she said.

    Don't stop with the newspapers! Call the TV, and radio stations. If you are going to open the can, open it all the way! The madia loves stuff like this.

    When working with the Feds, it never hurts to call a staffer at your local Congressperson's office and let them know what is (or is not) happening. They will look into it, esp. when you remind them that next year is an election year.....
