I'm just going to tell a small story if you'll all give me a moment of your time,about five years ago my ex wife ran off with a friend of mine with my three year old daughter and if you know me you know that she is the LOVE OF MY LIFE.... Well here it goes,when the ex left she basically took me for everything I trusted her to pay all the bills,well you probably know what happened there... Ever since then I've tried putting my life back together one piece at a time because I lost everything,are house because I had to sell it in the divorce and credit and everything I worked to have. So finely about four years later with the help of great friends and family I've finely bought a small house in Barstow Ill. It needed to be totally remodeled inside,but it was mine and it finely gave me the chance to have my own house again and it would give me the chance to give my daughter her own room,and that meant the world to me,well finely about a mouth ago I've finely gotten to the point to barrow about ten thousand from the bank to fix it up to make it my home for my daughter her me,and the plus side is it's close to Hampton Fire Station were I'm a Volunteer lieutenant. So make a long story short the Rock Island County Building Inspector came out and told me i was okay to start making my house a home after i came down to pull my house building permits... Well so I scraped up 400$ went to the County building pulled my 800 square permit for 340$ walked out with a big smile because I new I was on my way with a help of a couple good Buddy's to get the house for me and my daughter and make it a home. Then that's when my cell phone rang and my dreams went out the window,the County building inspector that was at the house just two weeks ago said quote .... Oh Mr Holman sorry I over looked the fact that in are calculations that you will be doing over half of your value the house so you Will have to put a 40,000$ New foundation under your house and jack it up two foot over the hundred year flood level...that was told two me five minutes after i purchased my permit for the work. So by them letting me buy the permit allows them two condemn my house if i don't do as they say in such amount of time. So basically I'll have put all my money in this house and I still owe about 25,000$ on it to my bank as it sits. So everything I've worked for is about to be taken away from me,and I'll still have to pay the note at the bank because the man at the bank took me at my word to pay the note and I gave him my word i would so I will.... I'm just wondering if there is anyone that can help me,I don't know what to do I can't afford the work for the New foundation. Maybe If this gets reported like the kids on FaceBook that there dad said if they got one million likes that they could get a puppy,well if one million people would give me a Ten Cents i'd have plenty to give my daughter her own room in her daddy's house. She will turn nine in August and that was going to be her surprise birthday gift ... So just in case you'd like to help me my address is P.O. BOX 221 Barstow Ill 61236....I don't have much time...My God Bless you All
