Cedar Lake Trying to Help Blind Woman Keep Home

In Cedar Lake, town council members Tuesday night took action in the latest of attempts within the community to help a blind woman keep her longtime home. The council directed the town attorney to look into trying to buy the property where 67-year-old Dolores Pittman has lived for over a half-century, then allowing her to stay there through possibly a life estate agreement. Published reports say through a series of events that began years ago, the small plot of land ended up on a county tax sale list, unbeknownst to Pittman, and sold out from under her for 43-dollars. Pittman's family bought the house decades ago, and was paying rent on the land, and when a church group that used to own the land divested itself of the property, property tax bills for the parcel began mounting up. Donations have come in to help the woman move, in advance of her anticipated eviction.
