Let's Get Extreme Makeover Home Edition Rebuild Lake High School

On June 5, 2010, an EF4 tornado touched down in Lake Township, Ohio. The twister hit Lake High School destroying it and then flattening much of a small town. The tornado claimed 6 lives, several homes the high school and a police station.

This community and people from the surrounding communities have banded together to help the victims recover, but they are pretty much on their own. FEMA and the Federal government won't help. They contend (when the visited 3 days after the storm and clean up was underway)that there was not enough devastation to warrant funding. The state and the local communities should have the resources to pay for it all. Too bad that will bankrupt villages, police and fire departments and the victims themselves.

Why Can't I Delete Mom's Face Book Page???

It has been a month since I saw a tornado claim my mother's life. Still Facebook keep asking me to reconnect with my mom. Despite the fact I have submitted their little form, called several times and have tried to get answers on Twitter, my mom's account is still up and I have been told that it will probably be memorialized since I do not have the right to do so. I'm mad and annoyed I have to pay a lawyer to do this. Basically, we want her page deleted. Under the circumstances of her death, it is something we need to do to heal. Facebook is making this bad situation worse.

When we are ready for a memorial page, we will make one. I shouldn't be forced to keep hers up by Facebook!
