Hattiesburg being left behind? 

Elizabeth Garrett from Williamsburg, Va.,: I keep hearing lots about the cost of Mississippi, but I have family in Forrest Co., I have spent 3 days on the phone with Jackson Highway Patrol and just yesterday got to speak with Emergency Management Services for Forrest Co. and Forrest Co. Sheriff's Office. They are all short staffed and over worked. The really interesting part is that they stated that there is NO assistance there - No Red Cross, No FEMA - NO ONE TO HELP THEM!!!! Is there anything that can be done to get them some help also? GOD BLESS FORREST CO. VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPT! They were the only ones who could get to my family and help them. My Grandfather is on 7 machines that keep him alive and they got to him just before his generator ran out of gas. I will always be truly indebted to them - they saved his life! Now, someone needs to get them all help so that more lives can be saved! Thanks for the information from an area we haven't been able to get much from. I'm glad your father has been saved.

Great post!

I did a search for gas can and found this site. I have put together an ebook I have titled, "Huge Gas Pump Savings."
