I read Oct. 30 about the plight of a 67-year-old blind woman in Cedar Lake who is going to be evicted from her home of 54 years because of a long series of events capped off be a heartless tax sale and a land speculator who lives in Chesterton.

I do not know how one person can do this to another without forever hiding in shame.

Do the people of Cedar Lake have no compassion for this lady? Does this land speculator in Chesterton not care about the pain and suffering he is causing?

This is lower than low. This is beneath contempt. This should not happen.

To the people of Cedar Lake: Help your neighbor. To the religious leaders in Chesterton: Can you not reach out to this resident and show him just how wrong this is?
