Mobile Home Residents Plead For Help

Some residents at Lexington's Ingleside Mobile Home Park are pleading for help.

They say they were told months ago that the mobile home park would be cleared out for new development and that they were promised money to help them move out.

They say they're frustrated, however, because new owner Neal Evans has been giving them the run around.

One resident told us Evans would set up meetings to discuss concerns, and then never show up.

Several residents we spoke to say they just want what was promised to them so that they can move on.

27 NEWSFIRST spoke to Neal Evans, who would only comment that homeowners would receive assistance within the next week.

The residents still living in the park say they've been told they must move out by the end of March.

    Susan; you still didn't answer my question to your post. When did going to school become a luxury? For those of you that keep telling me to "kiss your you know what;" you are just proving my point about your lack of communicating in an educated manner. That seems to be the ignorant, everyday response from the uneducated.

    Well said "Lives in a trailer and proud of it." I don't see where Brittany Spears, Lindsey Lohan, Paris Hilton and a host of others live in trailers but I believe we can refer to them as trash. My parents live in a trailer and I surely won't call them trash. My dad is retired from a job in which he made $80k plus a year. They just wanted to be closer to the water and a trailer with a fireplace and all the other amenities they need suited them best. My Mom was a substitute teacher, so as you say, if Anon's remarks are true, my Mom was trailer trash teaching our future leaders. I'm glad you made your comments; keep it up.

    You'd be surprised what I do for a living and the people that I deal with. Trust me, illiteracy is a BIG problem in this state. Do you think we rank low in categories where it is not good to be in the bottom of the barrel because everything is great? By the way, it's not wire rimmed glasses but 20/20 vision and your comment about the brain versus mouth size; jealousy will get you nowhere in life. Read below again and you will see that people responding to my posts can't spell the words they want to use. The United Negro College Fund has a slogan that says "A mind is a terrible thing to waste." At this point, we might need a slogan in Kentucky that reads "A mind is a terrible thing." Seems if someone disagrees with a person who is trying to inform them they are wrong, they get met with nothing but second grade insults. Let's keep coddling people and we'll end up with a nation of people who can't think for themselves and can't express their opinions in an understandable manner.

    And by the way Anon your remark "if they would have tried to better themselves a long time ago they wouldn't be in this shape now" whether you better yourself or not has nothing to do with the shape the trailers are in. People live in houses and let them run down does that mean they need to better themselves? I don't think so. A trailer is just like anything else if you take care of it and do regular maintenance on it then they will last a lifetime. You people need to get a reality check. I know school teachers who live in trailers. Do they need to better themselves? They teach your children in school everyday so you might want to rethink sending your children to school since trash is teaching them. Think back a few months ago about the house in Lexington (if I remember right) where the big nice home was over run with rats. What a field day some of you would have had if that would have been a trailer. Get off your high horses people. Some of you are really pathetic.

    I just love how some people will sit and call others "trailer trash". Like no one who lives in houses are "trash". Some of you people are so high and mighty in yourselves that you actually make yourself sound stupid. There is absolutely nothing wrong with living in a trailer. I live in one myself and am proud of it. I also go to work everyday and earn an honest living. I bet you one thing, living in a trailer I'm not in near as much debt as some folks who live in a big fine home and have the same advantages as someone who lives in a house. When I lay down at night I still have a roof over my head and can still eat dinner every night as opposed to people who have to starve to pay a big house payment just because some think that if you live in a trailer it makes you "trash". Get a life people. Trash comes from all walks of life, whether your rich or poor or live in a house or trailer. I'm sorry but I get so sick of the words "trailer trash".

    Awwww Anon, you hurt my feelings. I have common sense AND book smarts, so I guess that puts me above you. Keep calling me names; it just makes you look more ignorant. I least I point out the facts. Keep posting though; I love laughing at your posts.

    I live in corbin and here we have alot of nice trailer parks. They are hard working people living in them. So before you call ppl trailer park trash you need to look around and get your facts straight. You know not everyone in your big brick homes came by everything they got honestly. Look at the

    It's very sad that someone can't read the news and make a comment without someone putting them down for their spelling. If you judge people by their spelling alone, you are very shallow. I bet you were a bully in school and are still trying to make people feel bad about themselves. Shame on you for being so thoughtless.
