What a heartbreaking story about the brothers who lost their home on Huntington Street, a place they called home for 40 years ("Blight no more," Feb. 9, Page A-1). I am assuming the neighbors actually offered their time to help the brothers correct this problem before the city demolished their home. That would be the right thing to do, right?
It's so difficult to rally together to help a neighbor in need, but so very easy to call authorities and complain about your neighbor's problem affecting your home value. Forget about your home values, people, they are already down the tubes. What about your personal values, Huntington and Vicki Drive residents?
Shame on you and the city of Modesto for allowing this to happen.
