Just got back from DeKalb’s Public Works Water Division where my son and I, along with over 70 others, filled sandbags for whatever help they might offer to the flood-prone areas. The site is 1216 Market Street and I’m sure they could use more help today.

We saw a couple neighbors there to talk to and a few more who looked like folks whose names would come to me in a minute or two. As is my custom I smiled and nodded across a sand pile at one such familiar face and he did the same. Then it struck me that it was Vic Wogen. Oy. Well, he was out of context, in tee shirt and baseball cap. And he was working hard.
