?    All this week, FEMA will be on hand at the Floyd County 4-H Fairgrounds to distribute food stamps to qualified homeowners whose food was lost during the power outage resulting from September 14's windstorm.
    These food stamps will be in the form of pre-loaded “shopping cards”, allowing families re-compensation of food losses.  These cards will vary in amount depending on the size of family, conditions, etc.
    In addition, FEMA can also offer the opportunity to apply for housing assistance to cover structural damage to homes.

    “Our customers may be watching the news and reading the papers and naturally, they worry about their own banks,” said Sam Uhl, President of First Harrison Bank. “We understand their concern, but want to reassure our customers that they need not worry about the stability of their bank and the safety of their money.”

?    The crisp morning air is a sure sign of Fall. Local citizens are gearing for the trees to change to their beautiful reds, golds and oranges, another true sign that Fall is here.
    Local stores and family produce markets have bright orange pumpkins in all shapes and sizes ready to become your jack-o-lantern to welcome trick-or-treaters to your door this Halloween.
    Some citizens have even started decorating for the season with mums in their beautiful yellows and  reds and lavenders with bales of hay and scarecrows and witches.
    Another true sign of the Fall is the annual Autumn on the River Festival in historic Bethlehem. The festival, in its 16th year, was threatened three years ago. The volunteers organizing the event were becoming small in numbers and the festival was becoming too much.
    Co-Chairs of the festival, Andi Oles and David Abbott, have taken reigns of the festival and seen record numbers in the past two years in attendance and vendors.
    “We have really enjoyed helping with this festival. I am always ready for the festival weekend. It’s nice to see everyone bring their family and spend a day in Bethlehem and truly enjoy themselves,” Abbott stated.
