Neighbor helping neighbor follows widespread destruction

True to its nature, the Logan County community rapidly pulled together to supply labor and equipment anywhere it was needed.  At every site of destruction it looked like you see here: totally organized with large equipment and lines of trucks.

As "Goody's" as it gets. The grand opening of the new Goody's store took place yesterday morning. When the store closed in January due to a corporate bankruptcy, our local store was doing just fine. Now with new ownership but an old name, not only did the store have a great showing for their ribbon-cut, but a long line of shoppers waited to get back inside and shop at an old friend. To see what we mean, click the picture.
