Relief at last!

Residents of Verhalen Street off Luthe Road finally got the debris from Tropical Storm Allison picked up after more than 4 months of waiting. Precinct 2 Commissioner Jim Fonteno balked at providing additional pick-up despite numerous requests and complaints. A television news report that drew attention to the problem apparently resulted in the very late, but very welcome arrival of men and equipment to clean up the mess.
