The city of Lubbock went to great lengths to set up cots with pillows and blankets, and to provide for the evacuees of hurricane Ike. The last I heard we would not be receiving any of the people that were in great need of our assistance. I have since heard stories of over crowded centers and I have to wonder why. Why weren't some of these families sent here to a facility that had plenty of room and volunteers to take care of those people?

My letter will be getting composed tonight to our government and state officials. Anyone with helpful, factual information that I can use as leverage please contact me at connorsgotme@yahoo.com
Such as numbers, statistics, the fact that New Orleans is allowed to rebuild in whats called a "fish bowl" and they are at great risk for flooding... I need to know dates of Bolivars last disaster flooding. Things like that.

I plan on copying some of the comments left on this site as well as others. I will also be sending it on to all the media that I can find.

We should be allowed in, even IF they are going to close it off for wildlife. Good people and a good community should at least have closure, if nothing else. Plus, there are still homes standing. I know they keep talking about health threats, but give us all the possible dangers and let us make the call... its our lives and homes, not theirs. I am not going to take this sitting down... I am gonna fight and I need the help of the Bolivar Community to back me up.

Hi Donna,
I used to live in Crystal and my husband and I knew Mike. I haven't heard anything specific, but abc13.com has an article with a picture of 'Shackles' the lioness (must be a new lion since we knew Mike back then he had Sasha, another who's name I have forgotten and Shitty Kitty the tiger). Anyway, the article said that Shackles and her 'OWNER' rode out the hurricane in the baptist church in Crystal. The land is built up really high there and the church appears to have weathered the storm well. If the 'owner' the reporter referred to is Mike then it looks like he should have been ok too.

I heard that he was in the Methodist church with his lion. The lion is okay and I assume so is your uncle.

I was able to confirm from one of the pictures that I no longer have my "second home" in Emerald II. It hurts to think of all that has been lost. My father-in-law lived there. His house is still standing but the bottom is gone. Like everyone else we would like the chance to go in and see, so we can maybe find something in the rubble to keep as a reminder of the wonderful times spent there.

There was a clip on the tv yesterday about the lion and the tiger. The lion did stay in the Baptist church with its owner and they were rescued, it then said that the tiger was captured and it is OK too! What we need to do is contact the Commisioner of Precinct I Galveston County and let him know that the National Guard has the vehicles to take us property owners to our house, for those that are still standing. They should allow us, even if it is only for a few hours, to gather our things. They could restrict the number of people per household to go to their house, and do it in shifts, not necessarily, everyone at once. I'll post the telephone number and any other information as soon as I find it. Thanks so much to JakeAbby. You all are awesome!!!
