  • "Largest helicopter mission since Katrina"

    Good morning everyone.

    It seems like the news is full of tragedy this morning.  With the Washington Naval Yard shooting, our television coverage is now very focused on this developing situation.

    However, I still want to bring attention to the unbelievable rescue mission that is underway in Colorado.   This is now being called the largest civilion helicopter mission since Hurricane Katrina.

    There are hundreds of people that are still trapped by theis catastrophic, historic flooding.  The latest number is staggering:  1,200 people remain  unaccounted for.  State officials are trying to ramp up the rescue efforts today.  This is going to mean recruitment of people and methods to find survivors; not to mention money to keep this mission running.

    A spokesperson for the Colorado Office of Emergency Management says that cash donations are the best way to support survivors. 

    If you want to find out how you can help, here are several links you can click on to find out how:

    As always, our thoughts and prayers are with those that are in need of help, and their families who are still searching for loved ones.

I am very saddened and troubled by the flooding in Colorado and the killings at the Naval base in Washington, D.C. I pray for all of those affected by these events.... George Spink

Hi all, I think Colorado's flood damage is being made worse by the fires and dry, bare hills earlier. There is nothing there to catch and slow down the downpours. I went for my BCG treatment, then on to Physical therapy. The sun was shining nicely so I checked my email and headed out to dig spuds. In the ensuing 10 minutes after getting home, the skies opened up, the street was running full of water, and I gave up on the spuds! Now its sunny again as the sun disappears over the horizon.

I lived in Loveland, CO, for a couple of years, and am troubled by the devastation in Estes Park. Such a beautiful area. We used to go to the park to see the elk herds and visit the art galleries. The river was always a danger; but this is so sad.
