    I think the lack of communication, information, and response is an embaressment. These flood victims need help NOW not in a day or two or week later. Yet, when they ask for help they’re given the run around. Pine County should be embaressed and ashamed by the lack of compassion for these victims. I know I am extremly embaressed to be a resident of this county as these people have NOTHING…and we can’t help them or get organized???

    Our own Sherrif can’t tell people to call 1-800-RED-CROSS for help? He just said call Sandstone Human Services. He won’t give them a phone number, but if you find it, great, call them? What are they going to do? Aren’t all their programs income based? I’m pretty sure they are, so they won’t be able to help most folks. The county website also gives the same (or lack there of) information.

    Another interesting fact is only one of the county commissioners showed up to help. One!! Steve Hallen from Pine City. Where are your local commissioners? Why aren’t they reaching out to help the community? Maybe this is a good reminder to vote for those who want to help our county and the residents of it at election time….They should all be voted out for not showing up, not lending a hand, and for not having compassion.

    I just don’t understand this county…extremly embaressed!!

    Steve Hallan is a very good representative of our county. Thanks Steve H for your service and genuine concern.
