Home Sweet Home

Fighting IN The House :

Melvin Rodney Long, 38, was arrested for the slaying of 33-year-old Matthew Sisco. According to Jasper County Sheriff Archie Dunn, Long and Sisco were drinking and doing some "recreational" discharging of a firearm inside the home when Long became upset and allegedly fired the weapon at Sisco...

Fighting FOR The House :

"I don't know how much more I can endure," said Dolores Atwood, 69, while sitting in a FEMA trailer in front of her Katrina-ravaged brick home on Dauphine Street, just north of Slidell. The Atwoods' nightmare began when they learned in 2000 that their four-bedroom, two-bath home had been sold in 1997 through a tax sale for the $1.63 in unpaid taxes, plus 10 cents interest and $125 in costs associated with the sale.

"All this should have never happened," she said. But it did, all because of the $1.63 tax bill that Atwood and her husband, Kermit, never received.
