My turn: County government, change and ‘What do you mean we’re moving to Phoenix?’

By From page A4 | June 19, 2013

Everybody  knows an old dilapidated house. You know the kind, where you can’t flush the toilet if someone’s in the shower. Where the fuse box is so old that using the garage door opener while the dishwasher is running blows the fuse and kills half the lights in the whole place. Yes, it  keeps the rain and cold out, mostly, and serves as shelter, but it needs major work to bring it up to what it could be. New windows, new heating, fix those pipes and it could be a nice place. But what about that sag in the roofline and the tilt to the doorframe? Do we live with it like it is, fix it up, or move to a new place?
