FOXBORO - A community drive to prevent the home eviction of a handicapped former town employee whose family has been rooted in Foxboro for generations took an international turn this week.

A 1968 Foxboro High School classmate of John Hazeldine who prefers to remain anonymous sent a $2,000 check from his home in Windhoek, Namibia, said Bill Milhomme, another '68 classmate who started the fund on Jan. 25.

    This may sound harsh, but if you can't afford your payments without help from friends, then maybe it's time to downsize. I know the home has been in the family for decades, but it was never paid off within those decades. It's great everyone is helping them buy back the house, but unless they plan to completely buy it, then how do you know they won't be in the same situation again?

    Gary J- the reporter of this story has only provided drips and drabs. We don't know any of the details. But normally, a credit union will bend over backwards to help out their members. They will even renogotiate a mortgage. Only as a last resort will they foreclose. Lending institutions do not want to be property owners. However, as I mentioned in a previous response, this property has 11 acres in Foxboro. Have any idea what this property is worth to a developer who could break this up into lots? That's why it is a little suspicious that this lending institution was so quick to act- that is, until the spot light was shown on this eviction and the public thankfully got involved. This was NOT just a story about some late payments as some of you might like to think. It is too bad the reporter (Mortimer) did not give us the whole story.

    I could care less about who loaned this man the money. Truth is that in the real world, you take out a loan, you can't pay it, you get foreclosed upon.

    Until you're mortgage is paid off, it's not YOUR property, it's the banks. It sounds harsh, but allowing people who can't afford their mortgage to have them is part of what caused the meltdown in 2008 - a lesson all but forgotten by most Americans.

    That being said, you will take note it's the PRIVATE sector coming to their aid (as it should be). While blowhards like Warren talk and talk and figure out how to use this story for their advantage

    The story says the bank bought the home in a forclosure auction? Bank/credit union aside, is this not accurate? Cheers for these people keeping their home, but I don't see how the current owners are evil in this case.

    Note to Frank Mortimer- you failed to mention the name of the institution that is trying to foreclose/evict. And it wasn't a bank. It was a credit union. Please get the facts. All the facts or get a job at the NYT.

    There is good and evil in our world. It appears that good is going to win this one.
