Mark, I realize that you, and your family, have suffered a great loss. I'm not trying to add insult to injury, but if you were without homeowners insurance, you need some alternative to get back on your feet again. Take a few minutes sometime (when you're not on this forum), and try to contact "Extreme Home Makeover". I'm sure you've seen the show. Send pictures, along with the story of your misfortune. Better yet, make a video if you can. What's the worst that can happen? They tell you someone else has a greater need than you. Good luck.

they must not be too worried since it seems no one has touched that mess for at least two weeks, or more

THEY DONT HAVE TIME TO CLEAN UP THAT HELL HOLE....U KNOW THAT THEY HAVE TO RACE EVERY WEEK, or atleast thats what they wanna call them wrecking other people on the race track. there still is no reason that it is not all cleaned up. i dont know why the town is giving them so much time to clean it up, if it was anyone else they would have a ticket and have to go to court and pay fines.

We all agree that we don't like looking at that pile of trash it makes the town and us residents look bad. But if we all as a community and good Americans (as we all claim to be) come together and help the Sutton's out that mess could be cleaned up in no time. What ever happen to "Americans always pull together" or was that just a statement to justify our hate towards "ragheads" after 911. Mark Sutton if you post a date and time when you want people to help i will help and i will gather a few good Americans to help as well.
yes

I think they took a rain out. Just like baseball, the game got postponed. Yeah, it's ridiculous. They hit it hard the day of town clean up, and they put on a show a few times afterward, but that was all. I don't see the occasional kids hanging out in the middle of the road anymore. I have no clue what they were doing by that pile of burnt debris anyway. Maybe they were paying homage or something. All I know, I almost hit one because he wouldn't move out of the street. He was sitting in the middle of it!!!!
