Pussies. I live in a town of 55,000 and we have more than that.

ETA Jonesboro, AR. There are about 9 MRE's left here in the entire town. No bottled water ( I have 7 cases and don't feel good about it) No packs, no LBE's, Only 3 gas stations with gas, Even though prices have come down to between 2.97 and 2.92. They'd topped 3.79. I was at the gun shop today watching my gun guy make money hand over fist. People who'd never held a gun were buying them. Scary. Most of us are pretty nervous. And UofA is giving them all free tuition if they stay here.

If they are smart they won't be just dumped in one place. Spread them out over a whole state and they will be accepted much better.

I just hope Mi doesn't put them Detroit. No I don't live in Detroit either.

You know I just don't get it. If it was my property I would not just walk away. even If I had to camp in a tent and cook on my camp stove for a year I would stay and rebuild. These people are willing to be led around like sheep. Then again, I would never be foolish enough to live below sea level.

"Arizona to house hurricane victims


Pat Kossan
The Arizona Republic
Sept. 3, 2005 03:45 PM

Many Arizonans set aside their Labor Day weekend plans to help prepare for up to 2,500 men, women, children, some carrying dogs and cats, expected to begin arriving in Phoenix early Sunday by bus and by plane from the destroyed and desolate coasts of Mississippi and Louisiana.



Most will be coming from New Orleans and federal officials estimate the number of evacuees from 500 to 2,500, who would arrive over the next few weeks, said Jeanine L'Ecuyer, spokeswoman for Gov. Janet Napolitano. The governor cut short her vacation in New York and was flying back to the state today.



Arizona's government, school and aid agencies worked today to chart out a secure and organized arrival for the stricken families. Their goal is to provide the respect, privacy and comfort missing in their lives since Hurricane Katrina slammed into their homes and cities Monday, said Cam Hunter, state Department of Homeland Security spokeswoman.



"We have agreed our mission is sensitivity because these are individuals who have already been through a tremendous disaster and have faced so much lose already," Hunter said. "We know they are tired and hungry and many have medical needs. We cannot imagine what these people have been through."



The Veterans Memorial Coliseum, 1826 W. McDowell Road, was being swept out and set up this afternoon to be the point of entry for the arriving families, with help from female inmates from Department of Corrections, Perryville State Prison. Many details were still being hammered out, from the number of extra showers needed and play spaces for children. Phoenix city officials were in neighborhoods surrounding the Coliseum today talking to residents and businesses about the new arrivals. The Grand Canyon Chapter of the Red Cross with help from the Salvation Army will be providing basic shelter and care.



Here is what is planned:

• The city will bus those arriving from the airport and each person will be issued identification cards, receive food, clothing, showers, a cot and medical attention, including psychological help and daily medications they may need.

• Families are expected to remain at the Coliseum until state agencies can find more permanent shelter and, even, homes for those who decided to stay and start over in Arizona. Arizona State University and Tucson offered to help take in families. Arizona's Department of Economic Security will also be on hand signing up people for food stamps and other needs. The estimated length of stay at the Coliseum ranges from weeks to months. The Grand Canyon Chapter of Red Cross is planning for the long haul, expecting some families to remain "for months," spokeswoman Jennifer Liewer said.



"In our disaster responsibilities efforts the Red Cross is always there until the last person in taken care off," Liewer said.

• Phoenix Elementary and Phoenix Union High School districts are preparing to open their doors to the arriving students on Tuesday. The schools will send buses to transport the children if needed and provide clothing, free breakfasts and lunches. Nurses and psychologists are available on every Phoenix Union campus, although the Central High campus would serve the Coliseum neighborhood, district spokesman Craig Pletenik said.



"We're not really worried about records," Pletenik said. "We know if they're needed, those will follow, but they are probably not accessible now."



Phoenix Elementary principals at all 16 schools are on call should they be needed over the weekend, and they have been directed to arrive early Tuesday to get instructions from district psychologists, Phoenix Elementary spokeswoman Sara Bresnahan.



"They will be ready with open arms to embrace these children," Bresnahan said.

• While it is Arizona's opportunity to shine, all agencies involved asked residents not to come to the Coliseum to volunteer or to drop off water, food or clothing. When a more organized distribution center is established, state officials may be calling for help with school supplies and for Arizona residents willing to shelter a family. There are plenty of ways to help, mostly by sending cash to Katrina relief efforts. Find the latest needs and opportunities to volunteer at www.az211.com.



In the meanwhile, 84 Phoenix firefighters rescued 100 New Orleans residents off rooftops Friday and another 300 today with the help of boats from the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries and the U.S. Coast Guard, Chief Bob Khan said. The Phoenix firefighters are tired and camped out of the ground north of New Orleans.



"My chief there said, 'If I could just have a mattress and an air conditioning unit with some electricity to run it, it would go a long way,' " Kahn said. The firefighters are due home late next week. "But they're making a difference, and that's the juice for those firefighters. The will keep them going for a few more days."
