Quotes

"We've just started keeping track of families that are homeless," said Milner, "and 24 of them in the first [three months that came here] were homeless. I imagine as summer arrives, that number will go up."
...Wills, land records, very specific items, are things you'd find in a county recorder's office," she said. "So much is not online yet; sometimes it would be worth your while if you were passing [the area] to stop at a cemetery, talk to the cemetery sexton, take some pictures."
"In the lower level of this church is the Ecumenical Lord's Cupboard," Pastor Ron Barnett said outside First Methodist Church. "Many people have gone to 'the lower level,' and we need to find ways to feed those who are hungry. It's hard to teach someone about Jesus Christ when their stomach is empty."
...that that's too long for them, that 60 minutes will kill them — we understand," said Shannon Vesely, the district's 7-12 school improvement leader. "The teacher won't be talking for an hour. Students won't silently be doing math problems for an hour. We know these are kids."
