Two homes destroyed by the crash of a Marine Corps fighter jet on December 8, 2008, have been rebuilt and occupied. One family has returned to their home after multiple years away in a rental. The other Cather Avenue property, where four family members lost their lives, is occupied by a new family.

The value of area homes — $500,000–$700,000, according to a real estate website — does not seem to have been negatively affected by the jet crash. Very soon after the accident, however, a number of “for sale” signs were spotted throughout the area. According to real estate records, 21 homes in the vicinity have been sold since the accident.

Gosh, Gary, you could have told us much more about this in just a few more sentences. You could have answered questions such as, "why did it take this long?", "who paid for it?", "has the flight path been changed?", "are all the lawsuits now settled?", "has the USMC said anything about all the missteps that led to the tragedy?", and a whole host of things like that. But you didn't. Howcum?

visduh, i understand, but stringers are limited to only 250 words, not like researched features (1200+ words). also, the folks in the neighborhood have been flooded with intrusive lookie-loos for years now. i didn't want to add to their pain. also a lot of the info you mentioned just isn't readily available to the public, myself included. thanks. g/c
