  •  I went and saw Candy (10+ / 0-)

    She is real and is in need of temporary financial aide. She needs to pay her landlord the trailer park rental fee by Friday or she will be out no matter if she pays up or not.

    It seems that they do not like them as tenets because they are activists. I saw the notice from her landlord and although Richard had paid the rent for December and she is only a little late, they want them out if they can legally without regard to her circumstances.

    Candy was very nice and so very grateful. She offered Richard's death certificate and all the notices before I could even tell her my name. She was so touched she started to well up.

    I offered to take her some frozen meals I always have on hand and she started to shake with happiness. I will be dropping off some meals for her and her son tomorrow.

    As explained above Paypal is problematic for her as she has no access really to a computer and they limit how much you can get at one time no matter how much is in the account. She needs to get the landlord a money order.

    •  This is a great report. Thank you. (7+ / 0-)

      Do you have a PayPal Account? You are a trusted Kossack, and sending it to you is a fast, safe way to get the money to her. DO NOT use your only money in hopes that others will make up the difference.

      Those who fought the war in Afghanistan won it. Get them out of Afghanistan NOW . . . It's long past time. Those who want to wage the next war in Afghanistan are condemned to lose it.

      If you could set up a paypal account that would be so great.

      A trusted Kossack on the ground and in personal touch with  Candy is ideal for getting help to them quickly.

      Thank you so much for going over there.

      Please let us know what you decide to do or can do.

      I have not heard back from Betty (of Rocky Mt Peace and justice center) and anyway she is in Boulder, but I could try and call again if you are unable to set up an account.

      Please let us know.

      Solidarity,

    •  Sounds like they might need legal help? (1+ / 0-)

      Might there be a local agency that would intercede on any apparently descriminatory housing issues --- especially in light of the tenant's disability?

      Is there an Independent Living Center nearby?

      The Independence Center

      And/or, Protection and Advocacy agency?

      The Legal Center

      Both might help with the landlord issue, or refer to someone who can, and may be good resources for future advice and support on other matters.
