HIGHLAND | Richard Garza reads bedtime stories to his 6-year-old daughter from the hallway and to his 8-year-old son by walkie-talkie.
His home on Clough Avenue is not handicap-accessible, making it challenging for Garza, a paraplegic, to get around.
Garza, 45, tumbled from a ladder while fixing the roof on his Highland home in June of 2003 and has used a wheelchair since.
Then there are the financial handicaps. Garza, his wife and two children are dependent on state aid and Social Security.
And that'* where his friends -- even those he has yet to meet -- come in.
A committee of neighbors hopes to gather 50,000 signatures as an application to the popular series, ABC'* "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition." So far, the group has 2,000 signatures.
