More aid on the way 

A former Long Beach resident sends the following: I have been trying to keep up with events there by your on-line edition. First, our heartfelt sorry and prayers go to everyone there. But, I want you to know that there is much being done to get supplies to the coast. I just wanted to tell you that the North Alabama area is working hard to collect much needed supplies to send. I know of one specific truck from a business that left this morning from Birmingham. I know that 1 truck doesn't sound like much, but this is happening everywhere. Many, many churches are collecting non-perishable food and toiletries to send. I know that it doesn't help today or tomorrow, but in the next few days, I believe you will see supplies beginning to come in. Our radio and TV stations are giving new locations constantly of where items can be dropped off. My dad was born in North Alabama (Ft. Payne) and my mom was born in South Mississippi (Gulfport), making me some sort of mutt and it's good to know that one half of my family's history is helping the other.

Hey, you have a great blog here! I'm definitely going to bookmark you!
