Each week, News 8’s Jim Mertens talks with area leaders, entertainers, community activists, and interesting characters who are part of the fabric of life in “The Cities”.
THIS EPISODE: Jim talks with Major Scott Shelbourn with the Salvation Army in the Quad Cities, one of the lead agencies in the on-going flood recovery.
He says there are several riverfront residents who face a long, dirty effort to clean up their homes in the weeks ahead. They still need supplies. We talk about the one thing more than 60-families say they need.
Plus, how well did the coordination go between agencies that helped coordinate the Quad City flood response?
