HCHS gives update to City Council

Mary Darling Editor Representatives of the Harrison County Humane Society updated the Logan City Council on the status of the proposed 28E agreement they would like to have with the city. Kathy Alvis said since they met with the council last, an anonymous donor had come forward and purchased the building next to the Animal House in Logan for the Humane Society to use as a kennel. The donation of funds for the building brought the per person cost of the proposed 28E agreement for the City of Logan down to $1.52 per person for a total of $2,331.68 per year. “It’s almost half of what it was going to be,” Alvis said. “The building is all concrete, which should cut down on utility costs. It couldn’t have fallen into place any better. It’s right by the vet and right across from the park.” The Humane Society is still finalizing the purchase of the building with minimal repairs needed. It will have a capacity of 10 dogs plus some cats.

B L A N K E T, C O AT DRIVE U N D E R W AY The annual Blanket and Coat Drive for the homeless and local distribution has begun. Hats, scarves, mittens and gloves are needed. Coats, hats, mittens, gloves and boots are also being collected for Lo-Ma school students. The boxes are located in the Fourth Avenue Mall Building.

CRAFT FAIR DEC. 3 A craft fair will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Dec. 3; at the Logan Methodist Church. Along with the crafters, there will be a Goodie Walk by the camp kids. There is still room for more crafters and vendors. For more information, call Harriett at 644-3276.

From the Front

COUNCIL: HCHS updates city FROM PAGE 1 City administrator Angela Winther asked Alvis where the Humane Society stood with the other cities in the county regarding the 28E agreement. “Logan is first,” Alvis told her. They also discussed ordinances that need to be adopted by the city to allow a feral cat spay and neuter program to be set up. “We’re excited about it,” Alvis said. “We’ve been pushing for this for a long time.” The council wanted the city attorney to look over the 28E agreement prior to council action. Sam Thompson met with the council to discuss his Eagle Scout project. At a prior meeting, the council had given Thompson

approval to place a menu board up at the shelter and had asked for additional information regarding the board design. Thompson had drawings of sample ideas for the board. The menu board will be hung on the north side of the shelter house between the two serving windows and will be used during the Fourth of July and any other time needed. On the west side, under the overhang, there will be a display board with a plexi-glass door so items may be posted inside regarding rental information on the shelter, park rules, etc. The menu board will only be out when it is being used, but the plexi-glass one will be permanently mounted. Thompson said he plans to begin fundraising for his project and hopes to have it installed by spring.

Ragene Darling, pool board president, presented the board’s recommendation of Karie Waters and Tammy Hinkel to replace Matt Pitt and Cami Ettleman who are no longer on the board. The council approved the recommendation. According to Darling, plans are for the board to begin meeting in January to prepare for the summer season. The council reviewed and approved the 2010-11 audit by Muxfeldt and Associates and the fiscal year 2010-11 annual financial report sent into the state. Building permits were approved for Patti Baber, 420 N. Second Ave., sidewalk and Deb Hoffmeier, 214 E. Fourth St., 8-foot by 32-foot deck. The next council meeting will be at 7 p.m., Nov. 21.

Garage total loss in fire

The Logan Fire Department was called to a garage fire at 1:30 p.m., Nov. 17 at the Doug Johnsen residence in Logan. The fire completely destroyed the garage with a pickup and motorcycle parked inside. Some siding on Johnsen’s house was charred, but there was minor damage. The siding on the neighbor’s house melted from the heat. Department officials suspected the cause of the fire was electrical and resulted in approximately $30,000 in damage.

Down Home By Sandy Turner Sandy Turner writes a weekly column “Down Home” which is published in several newspapers in the Midwest. She puts a humorous spin on issues that revolve around families and every day life, drawing from her own experiences.

Thankful for a fast-food drive through I was in a hurry, which seems to be the current mode for most of us, most of the time. Pulling into the drivethrough lane for a quick lunch while trying to maneuver cash out of my purse and talking on a cell phone, I nearly plowed into the back of a truck. Some guy had stopped 10 feet from the speakerphone and was getting out of his truck. My first instinct was to honk the horn and wave him back into line or lock the doors in fear of being carjacked. All I wanted was to order my food and be on my way. He walked in front of my car and all I could do was to be thankful there are still those among us who will put away their haste, to do the right thing. An older woman was trying to make her way from the fast food restaurant to her car. Her walker wasn’t working properly and she basically was at a dead stop in the middle of the parking lot. With the helping hand and smile of this stranger, you could see and feel her sense of relief as he helped her into the car. Shame on me, I thought, to be in such a hurry I didn’t notice this woman’s struggle and to instantly think the worst of the guy holding up the drive-through line. During the holiday season, it’s easy to get wrapped up in everything that is fun and good about Thanksgiving and Christmas. From family gatherings to buying gifts and sharing meals – it’s these times that make memories last a lifetime. This past week we observed National Homeless and Hunger Awareness Week. It’s sad to think, in this country, which is known as the land of opportunity, we have more than two million people who are living on the streets. With more than 13,000 people in the Kansas City area who are homeless and thousands more who need the simple things in life so many of us take for granted – food, clothing, heat for their homes – it seems Mother Teresa had the right idea: “If you can’t feed a hundred people, then just feed one.” One person can’t help everyone – although everyone could help at least one person. It’s not hard to find a civic organization, agency or shelter that wouldn’t accept a helping hand, blankets, coats, clothes or cash. I want to avoid getting sidetracked throughout the hustle and bustle and forget to give thanks for what I have and then to share it with others. I admit I’m guilty of focusing so much on the superficial components of the holidays that I forget to slow down, be thankful, count my blessings and celebrate the holiday for its true meaning. Happy, thankful Thanksgiving.

Flash Mobs Bill Wasik, the editor of Harpers Magazine, followed the progress of emails, Facebook, Twitter and other aspects of the social media. As time passed, he wondered if electronic communication could be harnessed to create mass movements of crowds on short notice. Slowly, a plan gelled and in the summer of 2003, he sent emails inviting people to meet in a public place to join in a random act. Hundreds of people met at Macy’s in New York City, and entered the store in search of a “love rug.” Then, after confusing the clerks, the crowd vanished. The next effort sent about 200 people to the lobby and mezzanine of the Hyatt Hotel where they applauded for about 15 seconds. They moved to a SoHo shoe boutique and pretended to be tourists on a bus trip. Once again, they melted into the crowd after a few minutes of fun and confusion. Bill organized more flashmobs and kept his identity secret to create an air of mystery. As the flash mobs discombobulated observers, the New York Times, Newsweek, USA

Today and other publications, described the new craze, and in doing so, gave it a life of its own. The articles emphasized the role of technology and the Internet in creating random fun. Their speculation on the identity of “Bill” further contributed to the fascination with flash mobs. The news media also reported the beginning of an anti-flash mob campaign spread by the same social media that gave birth to the craze. The debate heightened interest, and flash mobs appeared across cities in the United States. Within weeks, major foreign cities saw their own flash mobs. As they evolved, the mobs became more elaborate. The most ambitious were musical and dance productions requiring months of practice. For example, flash mobs in a Moscow mall, in Kiev and in Poland, began with participants milling around with the rest of the crowds. Suddenly, a song played from a boom box or the loudspeaker system. As the astonished crowd watched, one or two people began to pose and dance. Within moments, a hundred or so

Perley’s Bits & Pieces By Jim Perley Logan Herald-Observer Columnist jperley@iowatelecom.net dancers gyrated in sync with a variety of music, much to the delight of the crowds. As flash mobs became more numerous, Bill Wasik decided to pull the plug at the height of their popularity. In 2006, he revealed his identity and declared the fad dead. However, he had created a force that could not be stopped. Flash mobs quickly evolved into professional production numbers to raise money for charity, as political protest or to promote visiting entertainers. One, for example, called Love 146, a Christian oriented organization to help stop child exploitation, used over a 100 dancers and stars from London’s West End theater district with a production at Trafalger Square last April. Singer

Annie Lennox wrote and donated a song for the charity. The organization received contributions from 8,000 people within three days. While the American news media has largely forgotten them, numerous flash mob adventures still appear as the fad evolves. A popular variation is marriage proposals. Entrepreneurs have also learned they can make money from the craze. Flash mob America promises for a fee to organize the flash mob experience as it was a wedding. The company promises help with choreography, music selection and copy write requirements. They will also take care of all “filming and editing.” Waski’s silly diversion has become a business.

News from the Extension Service

THANKS!! Last summer during the midst of the stress anticipating potential flooding, the comment was made that major events of this kind bring out the worst in some people, but thankfully, the best in many others. At the time, I recall thinking that we need to remember the little things that good people did that don’t look like much in the big picture, but were really hallmarks of the human spirit. And if you step back, that is true even in normal times. With that in mind now at Thanksgiving season, I invite you to try something simple that I will be doing prior to turkey consumption. With a pencil and paper, each of us will write down two or three things that we remember from this past year that are memorably good. Then, either as part of, or in place of, the blessing, each person chooses one to read as a remembrance. Maybe if you say it, you will remember it. So here is a start on my list

of “good things” from 2011: *High school rivalries are ingrained in our culture, yet early in June, the West Harrison school needed to be sandbagged. On a nearly 100 degree day, the evening double header between Lo-Ma and West Harrison started hours early with athletes from both schools – girls and boys – pitching in to fill, place bags to protect the school. Come evening, they put on uniforms and took the fields to play the games. Not a huge deal, but it was a special moment for all. Thank you. •At that same event, a recent graduate from across the county couldn’t help with the sandbagging herself, but took her graduation money and, on her own, bought watermelon for the students working. Again, not a huge deal…but it is something I won’t forget. Thank you. •The Levee coalition! Need I say more? These private citizens banded

Rich Pope Harrison County Extension Program Coordinator together and monitored problem spots and issues with the private levee system in Harrison and northern Pottawattamie Counties and arguably kept Missouri Valley, Modale and loads of rural homes and fields dry throughout the summer. Thank you! •The friends of mine in Sloan and Salix who lent their trailer to the extension office for evacuation and transport of fair things. Also, Mike in Salix who lent his generator to a Modale family for the summer as a back-up. Thank you! •The Iowa DOT and associated contractors. Who would have thought that the major highways in western Iowa would be

open well before Thanksgiving. Thank you! •Crops. Considering the challenges, the 2011 crop was pretty good (where you weren’t flooded out that is), and we had a great fall all in all for harvest and field work. And pretty safety done as well. Thank you! •The people I get to work with both here in Harrison County and across the state. You were there when you needed to be. Thank you! Well, there is my starter list. Happy Thanksgiving!! For additional information, contact Rich Pope at the Harrison County Extension office at ropope@iastate.edu or 644-2105.

HUMANE SOCIETY OFFICERS Senior meal IDPH confirms first seasonal flu site menu case of season The Iowa Department of Public Health has received its first confirmed seasonal influenza report for the 2011-12 season. The state hygienic laboratory confirmed the positive test result in a Polk County child (0 to 17 years of age) with no reported medical conditions. “Right now is a good time to get your flu vaccine,” said IDPH medical director Dr. Patricia Quinlisk. “It’s not too late to be vaccinated for seasonal influenza, and it’s especially important for those with risk factors including heart diseases, lung diseases, diabetes, women who are pregnant and the very young and very old.” The influenza vaccine is recommended for everyone six months of age or older. While the flu vaccine is the best defense against getting influenza, it’s also important to take personal actions to help prevent the spread of ill-

ness. Remember the three “C’s”: Cover your coughs and sneezes; clean your hands frequently; and contain germs by staying home when ill. The flu is a respiratory illness caused by viruses. It spreads easily from person to person and can cause mild to severe illness. The flu comes on suddenly and symptoms may include fever, headache, tiredness, cough, sore throat, nasal congestion and body aches. Illness typically lasts two to seven days. Influenza may cause severe illness or complications in people such as the very young or very old, or those who have underlying health conditions. Contact your health are provider or local health department to find out where the vaccine is available in the county. More information about influenza can be found at www.idph.state.ia.us/Cade /Influenza.aspx.

Fumigation course Nov. 29 Harrison County will host a fumigation continuing instructional course for commercial pesticide applicators on Nov. 29. The program will be shown at locations across Iowa through the Iowa State University Extension Pest Management and the Environment program. The local site is the Harrison County Extension Office, 304 E. Seventh St, Logan. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m., followed by

the session from 9 to 11 a.m. The registration fee is $45. To register or obtain additional information about the CIC, contact the Harrison County Extension Office at 644-2105. The 2011 course will provide continuing instructional credit for commercial pesticide applicators certified in categories 7C (fumigation) and 10 (demonstration and research). The course will cover topics including bin

and railcar fumigation; milling and food processing plant fumigation; grain insect biology; hazards and phosphide fumigants; emergency incidents involving fumigants; and an update on sulfuryl fluoride. Additional information and registration forms for this and other courses through the PME program may be accessed at www.extension.iastate.edu/ PME.

First cut off period for EQIP programs Lo-Ma students named Harrison County Soil and Water Conservation District and Natural Resources Conservation Service announces the first cut off period to rank and evaluate applications for the Environmental Quality Incentive Program is Dec. 16. Any subsequent ranking periods will end every three weeks following Dec. 16 until the 2012 funds have been fully obligated. Applications will continue to be taken on a continuous basis otherwise. Initial county funds will be split into five pots of money that include; water quality for animal feeding operations; plant condition on pastureland, erosion on cropland in the Elk Creek watershed; erosion on cropland in the Willow Creek watershed; and soil erosion on cropland. Some of these pots have a backlog of applications and some of them do not. Harrison County has been able to obligate $197,671 of EQIP funds to 13 producers in 2010 and $338,014 to 14 producers in 2011. These funds were used to install 56,700 feet

of terraces, four grade stabilization structures, 14 water and sediment control basin, 75 acres of prescribed grazing, 25 acres of pasture/hayland planting, 1310 feet of fence, five watering facilities, 4729 feet of water pipeline and 15 acres of brush management. For a complete listing of eligible conservation practices you may stop in the district office at the USDA Service Center at 2710 U.S. Highway 127 in Logan, call the district office at 644-2210 or go to the website at www.ia.nrcs.gov/programs and select the EQIP program and the county where your land is located. Also keep in mind if your land is located in another county you must contact that county, for specific EQIP deadlines and other requirements. Now that crops are out of the field, it is the best time to look at any erosion or water quality problems you may have, officials said. Funds are always limited and producers are encouraged to make an application as soon as possible.

Historic angus herd featured in “I Am Angus” In the early 1900’s, the Escher and Ryan Angus herd in Harlan, was one of the most prestigious in the country. Today, almost all Angus cattle trace back to the original herd, including the famed Angus bull, Earl Marshall. The television series, “I Am Angus,” produced by the American Angus Association, featured local Angus producers Steve Burress and Jim O’Neill, of Logan, in a program Nov.

21. “I Am Angus” focuses on the heart of the cattle business – its people, their heritage and why they’ve chosen to be part of the industry. The documentary series explores each sector of the Angus breed and beef business, Angus heritage and how animal agriculture meets the challenge of feeding a growing population. The program airs on RFD-TV. For more information visit www.angus.org.

Barney defensive big play specialist Marshall Barney, a 5-11, 210 pound senior linebacker from Logan, was Morningside College’s leading tackler for the third game in a row when he had four solos and three assists for seven total tackles in last Saturday’s win at Concordia. Three of his tackles came in the Bulldog’s backfield for losses of eight yards, including a pair of quarterback sacks when he dropped Von Thomas for a two-yard loss in the first quarter and Cohl Tufford for a fouryard loss in the fourth quarter. The three tackles in the Concordia backfield raised Barney’s season total of 18 tackles behind the line of scrimmage for losses of 63-yards to break the former Morningside singleseason record of 17.5 tackles for a loss by Brent Nickolite in 2007. Barney raised his career total to 47.5 tackles behind the line of scrimmage to break Nickolite’s former Morningside record of 46.5 tackles behind the line of scrimmage from 2006-2009. Barney ranks sixth nationally with his 18 tackles for a loss. Barney is the Mustangs’ leading tackler with team highs of 40 solos, 31 assists and 71 total tackles and is their top pass rusher with a team-high 6.5 quarterback sacks and five quarterback hurries.

And if you’re fortunate, you can look around your Thanksgiving table and see several generations of your family. Of course, as you know, many types of cohesiveness are involved in knitting a family together. But one connection that frequently gets ignored, at least in terms of family dialogue, is the financial linkage between parents and their children on one hand, and these same parents and their parents on the other. So if you find yourself in this “sandwich” group, it may be worth considering your financial position. If your children are very young, you might want to start by emphasizing the importance of three separate concepts: saving, spending and sharing. If you give them an allowance, or if you pay them to do some minor tasks around the household, you can encourage them to put the money in three separate containers. The “spending” jar is for them to use as they choose, the “saving” jar is to be put in some type of savings or investment account and the “sharing” jar is to be used for contributions to charitable causes. You can extend the spending, saving and sharing themes by encouraging your kids to spend wisely, watch how their savings grow

and feel pride in the work done by the charitable groups their dollars support. Later, when your kids are older, and can earn money by babysitting, mowing lawns or working parttime, you can further encourage good financial habits by offering to match their contributions to a Roth IRA. And be sure to discuss the different types of investments available; they may enjoy learning about the ways in which they can participate in the financial markets. Above all else, talk to them about the importance of developing good financial skills and how these skills will play a part in your family’s overall well being. Now, let’s turn to your parents. If they’re elderly, you may find that talking to them about financial issues may be considerably more challenging than talking about these issues with your children. It’s unfortunate, but true: People are sensitive about money and often don’t want to talk about it. You may find that you need to be persistent, especially if your parents are getting on in years. Perhaps you encourage them to consider their current position, and what planning might need to

be considered. Do they have accounts in a local bank? Where are their investments held? Do they have a financial advisor? Have they worked with legal professionals on any arrangements? If your parents have expressed interest in leaving a legacy or passing assets to family members, you might consider encouraging them to seek assistance from the appropriate professionals. After all, if something were to happen to your parents without them having made the proper arrangements, their wishes may not be carried out. So this Thanksgiving, as you think about the value of your family, you might take some time to consider issues that need to be addressed. . It may take time and diligence — but when it comes to your loved one's wishes and wellbeing, it’s probably worth the effort.

Kody and Kolton Kersten earned medals at the prestigious Harold Nichol’s Open held at Iowa State University Nov. 13. Kody, a 184-pound senior at Midland University in Fremont, Neb., earned a third place finish with a pin in the consolation championship match. Kody, in his second year at Midland, was a NAIA national qualifier in 2011. He transferred to Midland following his graduation at Iowa Central Community College in Ford Doge. Kody wrestled in the varsity 174-pound slot for Iowa Central helping the Tritons win a National Dual Championship and record their fifth, straight ,national team title in 2010. Kolton, in his sophomore year for Iowa Central Community College, placed second in the Harold Nichols Open at ISU. He moved up one weight to 197-pounds after qualifying for nationals at 184 in 2011. On Nov. 6, Iowa Central wrestled in Brookings, S.D., at the South Dakota State University open. Kolton wrestled his way to the finals at SDSU, where he placed second. Currently ranked fourth nationally, Kolton defeated his third ranked Iowa Lakes foe in the early rounds of the tournament at Brookings. The next time the Kersten brothers will wrestle under the same roof will be Jan. 7 and 8 2012 in Springfield, Ill,, where Midland University and Iowa Central Community College will compete in their respective divisions at the national dual cham-

Wetland reserve program applications due Dec. 1 Iowa landowners interested in restoring agricultural land to natural wetlands through the USDA’s Wetlands Reserve Program should apply by Dec. 1 at their local USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service office. WRP is a voluntary program that provides technical and financial assistance to eligible private landowners and tribes to restore, protect and enhance wetlands in exchange for retiring eligible land from agriculture. WRP is a continuous signup program, although NRCS periodically makes

funding selections as program funding allows. Dec. 1 is the first cutoff date for this fiscal year’s funding. During fiscal year 2011, NRCS enrolled easements on more than 4,000 acres across Iowa at a value exceeding $15 million. Over the past 20 years, more than 156,000 acres have been restored or are in the process of being restored to wetlands in Iowa through WRP and similar federal programs. Wetlands provide habitat for wildlife, including threatened and endangered species; improve water quality by filtering

Information for flood survivors Hazard mitigation Steps to take to disaster advice crucial obtain disaster aid In the wake of a flood, information becomes as important as food and water to disaster survivors, as well as aid needed to recover. That’s why the Federal Emergency Management Agency Hazard Mitigation Advisor is available at the Disaster Recovery Center to meet with applicants individually, offering advice on a range of preparedness and hazard mitigation topics, including: How to properly and safely do clean-up after a flood,; how to prepare and protect a home from future disasters; and how to apply for insurance through the National Flood Insurance Program. Being prepared is a crucial part of disaster mitigation, whether it’s purchasing flood insurance, houseevaluation in a floodplain, or clearing flammable or toxic materials from around the home before a disaster hits. FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Advisors, when talking with disaster aid applicants after a flood, will ask two necessary questions: What was the water’s

depth and how long did it sit there? Long after floodwaters subside, there can still be hidden hazards inside a home, such as mold, and there are safe and unsafe ways to approach clean-up. Hazard Mitigation Advisors are always ready to listen to a disaster survivor’s story and it helps them evaluate needs when applicants have photographs to show. FEMA also has a number of publications available, offering important information to applicants on specific steps one should take when cleaning up a flood damaged home, or how to safely clean up mold. “Repairing Your Flooded Home,” “Mold and Mildew,” “Helping Children Cope with Disaster,” and “Answers to Questions about the NFIP” are just a few of FEMA’s publications available at disaster recovery centers. While parents are busy talking with the FEMA Hazard Mitigation Advisor, a child can be learning equally important information about disaster preparedness from FEMA’s

educational and fun activity coloring book: “Ready…Set…Prepare! A Disaser Preparedness Activity Book.” And FEMA includes all household members with its publication for pet owners: “Preparing Your Pets for Emergencies Makes Sense.” FEMA publications can also be downloaded from FEMA’s disaster-preparedness website, www.ready.gov or from www.fema.gov. FEMA Hazard Mitigation Advisors located at the disaster recovery centers will also provide information on flood insurance through the National Flood Insurance Program. This program is open to homeowners and condominium owners, renters and businesses. FEMA and the Iowa Homeland Security and Emergency Management Division encourage all citizens living on or near a flood plain to purchase an NFIP policy. For more information visit www.floodsmart.gov or call 1-800-427-2419.

Southwest Iowa Recovery Network accepting applications Due to the generosity of the Iowa West Foundation, the Southwest Iowa Recovery Network is now accepting applications to assist families affected by summer flooding. This additional resource may assist those with unmet human services needs and aid in reducing the suffering caused by the flooding and home displacement. Eligible families affected by the flood may receive as much as $1,000 to assist with their recovery, although actual amounts will vary according to need. In addition, applicants may receive valuable information and referral to other

agencies and programs that may be able to assist with recovery planning. Requests for financial assistance should fall into one of the following categories: Housing repairs due to flood damage; temporary housing for relocation after the flood; childcare during the immediate time after the flood due to relocation; personal items lost due to flooding, including transportation replacement or repairs due to flooding; mental health services and items needed to fight household flooding. Those interested in assistance should call SWIRN at 712-435-5661 to

schedule a phone or faceto-face meeting. Application, phone ID and proof of disaster address (example: utility bill) and FEMA number will be required. FEMA registration is required prior to granting financial assistance. It is anticipated the funds will be distributed before the end of the calendar year. This program is funded by the Iowa West Foundation and administered by the American Red Cross on behalf of SWIRN and supported by local long term recovery committees in the affected counties.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency, U.S. Small Business Administration and Iowa Homeland Security and Emergency Management Division have made invididual disaster assistance available to Iowans living in the counties of Harrison as well as Fremont, Mills, Monona and Pottawattamie. The first step in obtaining disaster assistance is to register with FEMA if your home, business or property has been damaged. During registration, you will need to provide the following information: •A primary phone number and reliable alternative number •Address of damaged property •Social security number •Current mailing address •Brief description of the damages •Insurance information (homeowner’s, business, renters) •Bank account information (for FEMA direct deposit) •Proof of residency Disaster survivors can register with FEMA and SBA for assistance one of the following ways: •Call FEMA’s toll-free

registration helpline at 1800-621-3362 •Those with a speech disability or hearing loss who use a TTY can call 1800-462-7585, or use 711 or video relay service to call 1-800-621-3362 •Lines are open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week until Dec. 19 •You can also register online at www.Disaste Assistance.gov Once you are registered, FEMA will determine your eligibility and/or refer you for the following types of disaster assistance: •Grants for home repairs, replacement of essential household items not covered by insurance to make the damaged dwelling safe, sanitary and functional. •Grants to replace damaged personal property not covered by insurance. •Rental payments for temporary housing if the home in unlivable. •Unemployment payments for workers who have lost their jobs due to the disaster and who do not qualify for state benefits, such as self-employed individuals. •Low-interest loans from the SBA to cover property losses to homeowners, renters, businesses of all sizes and private

nonprofit organizations. •SBA low-interest loans for working capital for small businesses, small agricultural cooperatives, small businesses engaged in aquaculture and most private nonprofit organizations that suffered disaster-related economic injury, regardless if the entity had property damage. •Homeowners and renters who complete an SBA disaster loan application, but are denied a disaster loan, may be referred for Other Needs Assistance awards. An initial denial letter from SBA may also be appealed. •ONA is part of FEMA’s Individuals and Households Program. ONA grants help meet disaster-related medical, dental, funeral, transportation and other essential personal property losses not covered by insurance or other federal, state and charitable aid programs. •Emergency funds are also available from FEMA to sustain you until the insurance claim is paid. •Loans from the Rural Development Office are available for farmers and ranchers to cover production and property losses, excluding the primary residence.

FEMA denial letters not always final word Disaster survivors, after registering for disaster assistance with the Federal Emergency Management Agency, sometimes receive a FEMA denial letter in the mail stating “ineligible.” If this happens, do not be alarmed or discouraged. FEMA requires homeowners and renters to provide insurance and other information at the time of registration. But FEMA

also understands that after a disaster documents may not be readily available or may have been destroyed. That’s why applicants for disaster aid can update their information about insurance and residency at any point during the application process. Receiving a “denial” letter from FEMA does not necessarily mean an applicant is not eligible for disaster aid, even when the

letter states “ineligible” or “incomplete.” It can be an indication that further information is needed, or tthe applicant’s insurance claim needs to be settled first before disaster aid can be granted. An ineligible letter from FEMA will specifically explain why an application needs to be revisited. Call FEMA helpline at 1800-621-3362 for more information.

Physical Therapy Center at Woodbine Clinic To Open November 28, 2011 Physical Therapists will begin seeing patients at our new Alegent Woodbine Clinic location on Monday, November 28, 2011 Our therapists are licensed professionals who are experts in musculoskeletal dysfunctions. They are trained to analyze movement and identify abnormal mechanics. From this assessment they will treat a dysfunction with manual skills that will accelerate the recovery process. To enhance this treatment, the therapist will design a specific exercise program that the patient may execute independently. We treat a wide range of dysfunctions from neurological injuries to sports injuries and wound care.
