Face of the Tea Party - In their own words

Projects


Faces TeaParty 12

Don Nunemaker, 61, Plymouth, Ind., retired Air Force officer and part-time pastor, is co-founder of "We the People," a Tea Party group in Marshall and Fulton Counties. “(It) started during the Bush era. I was not tickled by the Patriot Act. … I was also very unhappy with the attack in Iraq. … But that wasn’t enough to get me off my chair. … “When Obama emerged … he was talking as a moderate … (but) there was a total lack of transparency even though Obama said he would have the most transparent administration ever. …. One of his czars was a Communist. … What is a Communist doing in the American government? That was the last straw. “I would hope that political candidates ... will pay a little more attention about what the American people are saying. … We pay too much attention to minority voices… We’re not talking about race or skin color. … It’s (people) with a political agenda that is adverse to American well-being. Like Communists … like the unions.”

Faces TeaParty 09

Tom Grimes, 66, South Bend, Ind., retired stock broker and insurance sales rep. Grimes, standing aboard a bus bound for a Tea Party-affiliated rally in Indianapolis, founded St. Joe County Tea Party Patriots. “(My inspiration) is Glenn Beck primarily. I listened to him for several years before he was famous. It’s like taking a class from the most fascinating professor you’ve ever had. “The government cannot control things. … It’s what the Communists tried to do. ... That’s what Obama is trying to do. We are going to build windmills, we are going to build these little cars and if people don’t buy them we will raise gas prices to $25 a gallon. … We should have let (the banks) collapse. … We might have had a tremendously deep recession, but at least we’d be heading out of it.” “I want to see a drastic change in government -- smaller, with more authority back in the states. … I see no reason we need a Department of Education. ... We don’t need an EPA.”

Hursel and Ebony Williams of Indianapolis, shown at a Tea Party rally on Oct. 16. Hursel, 40, is a video tech at a cable company; Ebony, 35, is an independent computer consultant. They say they are not Tea Party members, but sympathize with some of its positions. Ebony Williams: “We feel… that it is our duty as Christians to stand up for what is right. "Constitutionalists stand for the little man and for what Christ stands for – the right to be treated fairly, equally." Hursel Williams: “We've often been hoodwinked. … Things are often not as we were raised to believe. "I would like to see (the Tea Party movement) cause an awakening for people ... that people will seek truth. "I had a preconceived notion (that the Tea Party is racist). … I have felt nothing but love and talk about Christ. … I would bring my children to this."

Faces of foreclosure

Projects


FacesForclosure 01

The faces of foreclosure include Karla Funnell of Elkhart, Ind. “I really miss living at that house, I really want to have that life again,” says Funnell, seen here on Sept. 25 admiring the home she had called hers for 18 years. Laid off from her job, eventually her unemployment benefits ran out and then she lost the home to foreclosure in 2007. After 30 years in the RV industry, Funnell, 52, now delivers pizza part-time and lives in a fifth-wheel camper with her son on her daughter and son-in-law's property. Looking back, Funnell says she might have been able to get a loan from family members had she told them sooner. Her advice: "Try to get help as soon as possible. Don’t be ashamed."

FacesForclosure 05

Terrie Vavrek , 42, moves out of her home of eight years on Sept. 25 after declaring bankruptcy and walking away from her mortgage. Having lost her job in January and getting $1,200 a month in unemployment, she quickly got behind on mortgage payments of $1,400 a month. Vavrek and her daughter are now staying with a friend. She'd worked at the plant that builds H2 Hummers for General Motors and hopes to get the job back after GM recently completed a deal to sell the brand to a Chinese company. "I am waiting now to hear something positive about my job since the contract has been signed," she says. Would she do anything differently if she were shopping for a home today? "I'd make sure I could afford the house payment even if I was unemployed," she says.

FacesForclosure 04

Johnny Warren and Brenda Carpenter talk about their mortgage headaches outside their Elkhart home on Sept. 30. They've lived here since 1998 and never missed a payment, Carpenter says, until both became RV industry casualties -- Warren after 17 years and Carpenter after 20. They're getting help from La Casa, a local nonprofit, which is helping file paperwork to reduce the mortgage payments. Carpenter says they're always looking for jobs but are regularly turned down, because they're told they are "too old to qualify." Carpenter's advice is to not miss mortgage payments. "Make sure that gets paid first no matter what," she says.

FacesForclosure 02a

Rebecca Christner reflects outside the Elkhart County home she lived in for 24 years before losing it. Each room has memories, she says, "and they can't take that away." Christner, 55, spiraled into foreclosure after she quit her nursing job due to stress and then her husband died. "His death precipitated a lot of emotional problems for me," she says,"and part of how I dealt with it was making purchases" -- especially on credit cards. "Seek advice from people other than the bank, like a financial adviser," she says to anyone in similar straits.
