"turned a corner?" haven't we heard that kind of rhetoric somewhere before...?

My heart is weak and struggles to make sense of the tragedy in Hugo. Being a resident for the past 4 years, I will do whatever is necessary to help this great community recover. My thoughts and prayers go to everyone impacted, especially the Prindle family. May we all pray for them and do what is necessary to help.

Steve Crist deserves a lot of credit for his quick thinking here. Cell phones and shoes, I would have never thought of stuff like that.

My prayers go out to the poor people in Hugo. Living in Wyoming, this was too close for comfort. I was wondering about the construction of these homes and the if the debris fell into the basements. After looking at the pictures, it seems as though most of these home did not have below ground basements. Looking at the aerial views of the distruction, it appears as though many of these homes are build on fill. That explains the no below ground basements. Maybe these developers need to quit filling in swamps and building houses on them. Why would a city approve of these kinds of plans? They need to stop thinking with dollar signs in their eyes and look out for the greater good. I will be in Hugo Saturday to help the people clean up. Will the developer be there too?
