Moldy Apartment Makes Pocatello Man Sick

they don't make dorms the way they used to
An Idaho State University student has been sick for about four years because of mold in his apartment.

Matthew Shugert said he did not know until January of this year that the cause of his sickness was mold infestation in his apartment at Ridge Crest Housing, Pocatello, Idaho. Explaining his illness, he said, “Over the years, chronic exhaustion to the point of passing out. Sleep problems, respiratory problems, neurological problems, bloody noses, just a wide range of symptoms.”

University’s Technical Safety Director Peter Farina said housing inspectors had visited and assessed mold issue in Shugert’s apartment in early March. He said, “What they need to do is immediately contact our university housing if there are leaks. Because mold needs water to grow and needs a continuous source. If you cut off the water, the mold will stop growing. Also, students need to be careful what they bring into the dorms or houses, we’ve had a lot of fires in the past.”

Nobody Shows up at Auction of Mold-Infested Building in Bartow

City management of Bartow, Florida, held an auction to sell the mold-infested, former solid waste department’s building on May 19, however, nobody showed up.

The building, located at 2060 State Road 60 E, was abandoned more than a year ago after its wall and carpet became infested with mold. The city’s Solid Waste Department was temporarily relocated to another nearby building.

According to auctioneer John Martz, “I’ve never, ever held an auction where nobody came… There’s usually always somebody who will buy what you’re selling.”

City Manager George Long said, “I expect that building is going to be demolished and salvaged, to the extent that it can be… Whether that will be done by the city or somebody acting on our behalf, I don’t know.”
