GC Katrina Coverage
From Press Reports:
Word dribbled out yesterday that there was another site on Fort
McClellan available for evacuee occupancy which came as a bit of a
surprise even to local officials. The Noble Training Center on the
former Army base was officially named as another place folks from
down south can call home...for up to two years. The facility to
date has been used to house "first responders" who come from all
over the nation to train for terrorist eventualities. It boasts
The twin barracks at Fort McClellan were opened
Wednesday. To date, it is said, that only a few folks have moved
in, perhaps because they prefer the motel rooms. No doubt things
will pick up with the upcoming race at Talladega when all local
rooms are always pre-sold. Also, what hasn't been related in news
is that the area will no doubt have many more storm visitors as
temporary shelters across the nation (like Texas and Louisiana)
are downsized and/or closed. This is an ongoing story.
In related news, local gas prices have fallen again.
Today we are only $.20 or so higher than pre Katrina. To see the
trend, be sure to look at the bottom of all of the archive Katrina
