In California, one in 25 homes faces foreclosure. Areas such as Inland Empire, known as "the affordable Orange County," are particularly hard-hit. KCET's "SoCal Connected" program reports on the crisis.
Now, excerpts from two reports produced by our PBS colleagues. First, the story of a family facing foreclosure in Riverside County, California. It was originally aired on KCET Los Angeles as part of its weekly series "SoCal Connected." The correspondent is Judy Muller.
It's another weekend in suburbia, and Joe Balli is cutting his front lawn. His wife, Erin, cleans the patio door and wipes down her favorite thing in the kitchen, the big center island. The family is also having a yard sale today.
All the stuffed animals are 25 cents each. There you go, you got a sleeping buddy, our first customer of the day.
We have Scooby Doo movies with the Flintstones and Yogi Bear.
None of this would be at all unusual except for one thing: The Ballis don't even live here anymore. They're facing foreclosure.
I can't even short sell it. I mean, just can't do it.
You know, one thing about our kids is they don't wear them out. They just outgrow them before they can wear them out.
