    Reading some of these posts I can't help but wonder - are we trying to stop the rampant violent crime or are we trying to make life harder for poor people? What does limiting food stamps for poor people have to do with fools shooting people randomly and for no reason? Oh, I get it; if we starve them to the point of emaciation they'll be too weak to lift a gun.

    When I hear the 'entitlements are the problem' canard, I wonder what brought about such a mindset. Are you concerned about the fiscal impact social programs have on the budget/economy, or are you obsessed with the thought that somehow, someway, somewhere somebody might, just might, be getting some thing for nothing (as you see it). If it's the former, then you have to know (if you've been truly studying the issue and not ingesting mainstream media and neoconservative propaganda) that the cost/implementation of these programs are in no way a threat to the financial well-being of this nation. 'Welfare', however you define it, does not cost nearly as much as war in Iraq, war in Afghanistan, tax breaks for the uber-wealthy, Wall Street bailouts, subsidies for international corporations (Exxon makes more money than any company in the history of mankind and they have to gall to argue and pressure the government for a tax subsidy), and a host of other boondoggles and special interest programs. Examine the facts and crunch the number and you will have no choice but to come to the conclusion that it ain't 'welfare' that's breaking this country.

    We that are concerned need to focus on efforts that will get people to change their behavior; and the only way we can do that (that I know of) is through education. I could go on but I'm tired of typing.

  • JD.....I think people are getting tired of just having government throwing hard earned taxpayers money at the problem and continue to see ANY results. I for one want to see young kids get outa the"poor side" of town, but sometimes and maybe it should most times....they need to find a way or better yet, do it on their own. Take ownership of themselves! These programs were set up for one thing and one thing only....to help for a while NOT provide a lifestyle!

Did You Apply for the $1 Large Lot Program?

If you applied for the Large Lot program, www.largelots.org we want to hear from you. Did you find the process difficult? Easy? Confusing?

April 21st was the deadline if you apply prior to this date we would love to hear about the first phase of your experience

  • Tina Hammond Childcare provider in the Englewood community

    Yes I did apply,the only thing that was confusing is the majority the application did not pertain to me.So the notary almost didn't notarize it.Other than that I was glad that I was able to apply,weird things there are at least 3 other lots that are vacant that are private...

    Yes I did apply,the only thing that was confusing is the majority the application did not pertain to me.So the notary almost didn't notarize it.Other than that I was glad that I was able to apply,weird things there are at least 3 other lots that are vacant that are private owned.The city says they will take the lot back if u don't keep it clean,yet I have been cleaning them since I've been on the block,so should they take them from the private owners whom I've never seen in 12years.They are holding on until the value of the community comes back and they have the neighborhood the way they want it.So sad how they allow the Black neighborhoods to just waste away.There are things that are out of our control but the city and news will make outsiders believe see how they live when we didn't foreclose on properties the Banks did.Prayfully the lots will help beautify the neighborhoods and the news won't say crime ridden they will say the Good that is in E.W and I have been here for a long time.

  • Happy making better choices

    Although your effort is great Tina, don't clean those lots or the city assumes the owner is taking care of it. Report the lot bc for garbage and stuff so you have report numbers and the city has a paper trail of contacting the owner as proof they don't do anything. I file complaints on a building near me at least once a month, so that owner is held accountable.
