The birth of a relief camp

With Mermaid’s Kitchen gone but their home still standing, J.P. and Samantha McCrary and their family switched into recovery mode.

Courtesy? Whether it is in the workplace, in the home, in the community or while participating in recreation, we have a choice about how we behave. At this time of year, the parking lots of North Bay boat ramps are filled each weekend. Boaters and fishermen arrive with smiles and plans for a fun day on the water. It’s not unusual, though, for these happy faces to disappear during the launching experience.
