Windstorm continues to impact area

December 13, 2011 - Bennet Goldstein
Little did we know when that wind howled throughout the area on July 11 we’d still be feeling the impact a half a year later. For further proof just look as some the stories from last week’s paper. Windstorm tree damage at parks, bus barn damage forces demolition and damage at JBS. All of these news items stem from that July 11. Not to mention the move of the damaged Co-op at Garwin to a new facility in Toledo, which was also noted last week in the Times-Republican. There are so many layers to this damage which has affected so many people, including the farmers who dealt with downed and damaged corn. As everyone rebuilds I guess we can be thankful that everyone survived the storm. It's uplifting to see that everyone continues to move forward. As Marshalltown Mayor Gene Beach put it, residents didn’t wait for someone else — such as a government entity to help — they became the help.
