Our guest  on Midpoint Wednesday was Tampa Bay Times reporter Susan Taylor Martin, who was part of an investigative team at the Tampa bay Times who followed up on the neighborhood here in the Bay area that was hardest hit by the housing foreclosure crisis a decade ago. Once an attractive neighborhood for new homeowners, The Kings Lake community in South Hillsborough was one of the areas hardest hit by the mid-2000’s housing crash. At one point one in five houses at Kings Lake were in foreclosure. Martin  and her team at the Times looked at what caused the crisis—and how things are now.
