Thanks to all who are helping those in need. Let me know what I and
WISPA can do to help. We are all going to work together on this effort.
We can all help guys like Mac Dearman who are making a difference today
for evacuees in Louisiana. I understand the need for a much larger scope
plan and am willing to help with that also but I hope we can all empower
Mac to do more right now while we are all working on the bigger picture.
Mac is helping a much smaller and focused effort than what our "big
picture" effort will be but I have seen much great things coming from
Mac's efforts and I think it is important that we bring some immediate
help while working on the longer term goals. If you are not on the
Hurricane Relief mailing list and you want to be then go to:
and replace the word "Volunteer" in the body of the message with the
nickname you want to be known as on the list.
I recently received a message from Mac that he would welcome the use of
his 50 acre homestead as a staging area with power and Internet access
there. He has a large barn that can store supplies also. This could be
the point from which we all start branching out to other efforts in
Louisiana. Jim Patient is on his way to Mac's place and Butch is already
there. Planning is important but helping those in need with some
assistance right away is a good way to help us see the needs of the big
