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 150 units.
     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 pages...
