SBA has closed the Tutu Park Mall office. And FEMA is out on Friday. I was the last person in SBA’s office yesterday. They took my papers and closed the doors. This phase of our recovery is over.

New Traffic Signs.

Commissioner Ann Abramson has activated a local contractor to replace the signs that were lost in the storm. The company will mark the sites where signs are gone with large orange wooden stakes. You are asked not to disturb the stakes while the work is proceeding. If you know a missing sign call 776-4844 x 146.

Counseling for Police

Senator Luz James wants more stress counseling for our police. Citing the recent suicide of a police officer and all the stresses of the job, James wants supervisors to look for signs of stress and intervene to help prevent a disaster. It is mental health month and everyone experiences mental stresses in their lives. Those who seek help get better. Counseling works.

From the eye in the sky to your ears on WSTA we’ll keep you posted.
