NPR – Haiti

with one comment

Kudos to NPR and AP for flying in journalists. As we all know following the ice storm, reliable information about disasters is tough to produce, especially when the journalists are dealing with chaos that reigns in the first throes of the event.

We’d like to hear from any of you who may have business or personal contacts in Haiti so that WKMS can help tell the story accurately.

An earthquake such as this should remind us of our own vulnerability and take more seriously all the resources out there from the National Weather Service and the American Red Cross regarding preparations in advance of catastrophe.

My stash of supplies is outdated and in disarray. How about yours? Has anyone solved the conundrum of having an advance supply of prescription drugs?

Take care out there.

Poor Haiti. If you donate, watch for scams.

KY~ 40/92 Irvin Cobb tenants back in; finger pointing ensues.  Beshear’s holding a yard sale. Legislature will consider nuke power (again). Senators let charter school proposal die despite growing popularity.

TN~ A Clarksville schemer allegedly generated hundreds of frivolous lawsuits. Henry County High’s Band Director dies. Bredesen’s education proposal makes headway.
