I'm probably going to regret this, but what's life without regrets? 

Everyone knows about my volunteering at the West Rest Haven for almost 3 years. Not a long time in the grand scheme of things, but long enough for me to have an unyielding love for the residents and the employees. Except for certain ones ..But this isn't about who I like and who I don't like..this is about the employees of West Rest Haven getting screwed over. After all the years of service and loyalty, they will be given one paycheck and a pat on the head. Under the circumstances and given the amount of money they have, I would think 3 months wages (unless they got a job before) and 6 months insurance. But I'm not them. I'm pretty sure none of the residents family knows how shoddily the people that took care of their loved ones are being treated. They are concerned right now with their loved ones who have all been displaced. So I have taken up the banner and waving that sucker over my head and raising as much hell as I can without causing the employees any grief..So, I'd like people to go to any of the websites for the city of West and just ask the questions..'is it true the employees of West Rest Haven were only given one week's wages?'..or did you know 'the employees of West Rest Haven were only given one week's wages?'...Maybe we can see if the pen is(keyboard)  mightier than the sword.
My truck is in the 'red zone..#3' so they are not under any circumstances going to let me or anyone in to get their vehicles etc. My truck is not the only vehicle there. Most of the employees automobiles are there too.

I see sites about the West Chamber of Commerce, but not a municipal site. What should I be looking for?

That's such a bummer for the West Rest Haven employees. I imagine everyone who worked at the Fertilizer Plant has been laid off too -- can't imagine it will be back up and operating for awhile? The financial effects of this terrible accident will affect West for quite awhile, I'm sure.

How can this be legal? It's wrong in any case, morally, especially for those long term staff.
