Default Extreme Home Make-over for Highland, Indiana Family

This is an excerpt I have copied from the online edition of The Times. Please go to the site and sign the petition. This family needs all the help they can get! Please Sign so they can get all the signatures needed to send in the application!! I'm sure with all the people on BonnevilleClub, we could help quite a bit. I personally know this family and they really need this. If my 1 word thread went 16 pages, this can do way better!!!!

Thanks,
Leslie

CORRECTION APPENDED

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.

Those who would like to help can log on to
