From Press Reports:  
     New details about the Ft. McClellan solution have come to light and not a few suppositions. Up to 1000 evacuees are expected to be housed at the old Ft. McClellan army base in Anniston, Alabama sometime around the end of September. Some will be brought in and some are already in area motels.
     The new information mainly concerns screening the folks who will be our neighbors. It is now expected...but not confirmed...that FEMA will conduct screenings to determine things like special needs, medical information, and background checks. The process is more to make sure the folks are comfortable and perhaps to help in the future about helping them to get back into regular society.
     However, local law enforcement also indicates that they will also want to do a criminal backgrounder.  It's a common sense precaution to protect the safety of our guests and the community at large.
     As the date of the opening of the barracks, or starships, as some call them at Fort McClellan nears, it's interesting to see how the local government meshes with the federal government. So far, it appears that the local government is determined to be ready, regardless...
     Rumor has it that the Ft. McClellan facility could be operational by the end of the week if everything falls into place.
