From Press Reports:  
     The latest news from Calhoun County Alabama regarding Katrina is that Rita petered out down south, being more of the kind of hurricane we're used to. This only leaves Katrina to worry with, and worry with.
     The Fort McClellan barracks facilities are up and running and able to handle upwards of 1000 evacuees. Add the Noble training facility mentioned in earlier archived articles to the mix and you're looking at maybe space for 1500.
     Fort McClellan, in Anniston, Alabama is still awaiting residents. A minor trickle will occur later this week when the Talladega car race fans come to town, and the evacuees in local hotels will have to remove to the Fort. Other than that, FEMA continues to tell officials to expect a great number of folks from down south as resources are shifted and distributed to relieve overcrowding in other parts of the country. The local news media says that upwards of 600 people are expected in most any time now. GC has been waiting to hear a confirmation that they have arrived. Perhaps tomorrow we'll have one. As of last night, it was still pretty lonely out at the Fort McClellan property...

just before Katrina was $2.43 per gallon. Use this for a benchmark.
