In the November 30 episode of "The Lines Between Us," Maryland Morning senior producer Lawrence Lanahan tells the story of "Uncle Joe." Isaac Joseph Bacon is an 88-year-old African-American World War II veteran from West Baltimore with major health care and assisted living needs. The bank is foreclosing on his house. He bought it for $6,300 in 1950; the two short sale offers he's gotten were $11,000 and $20,000. Meantime, his great-niece Dominique Moore and her extended family are scrambling to deal with the foreclosure process, the house, and paying for assisted living for Uncle Joe and his wife Roslyn.
In this video, we meet Dominique, take a tour of Uncle Joe's house a few blocks from Druid Hill Park, and get to know the neighborhood.
