Aid Pours In For Jimmy Gray
May 10, 2004
CARLSVILLE, WISCONSIN--In the week since the condition of Jimmy Gray's home became public, more people in Northeastern Wisconsin have come forward to offer help.
According to Saturday's Green Bay Press-Gazette, some have offered to provide a new septic system -- which is the most pressing of needs -- along with new landscaping, paint job and renovation of the house.
Gray, who reportedly has a developmental disability, says he just wants more room to store his stuff.
Now the question has come up as to who is going to provide the estimated $37,000 in improvements that the house ultimately needs.
Other questions are also surfacing regarding Gray's ability to take care of himself and his home. One state representative suggested a guardian be appointed to "take some responsibility for him and help him improve his life."
Gray's situation was to be addressed during the county Board of Health's monthly meeting Monday, under the agenda item "Health Hazard".
