Editor, The News:
We wish to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to Jennifer Jensen for the outstanding story in the Thursday, July 12 edition of The Wakulla News regarding our FEMA Community Relations operation (“Community Relations Team is out in the county,” front page).
We were especially touched by your account of efforts on behalf of Mrs. Elaine Herndon. Your narrative was expressed with great sensitivity and compassion and is, we think, right on the mark in capturing the very spirit of our mission in the field.
Our FEMA colleagues spoke of how well and how accurately your story detailed the work we do. They noted how beautifully it gave a face and an immediacy to the massive relief effort by FEMA and by the many other organizations, groups and untold numbers of individual volunteers in this area.
We would be remiss if we did not acknowledge with commendations your story on the vital work of the Disaster Recovery Center in Crawfordville, and the touching account of Mr. Bill Rogers’ encounter with the danger of flood waters (“He woke up just in time,” front page).
You brought it all home to your readers . . . so again, thanks so much for your treatment of these important matters and events.
Brenda and Steve
