Mr. Wagemann wished things had gone well, but he felt they did everything they could to make the project a success. Some things are out of their control. "But we are where we are," he noted and hoped that Ruston officials would work with them in good faith through this process. He felt working together would give the best chance for a good outcome for everyone.

Pierce County Emergency Operations Center is collecting damage information from homeowners and business owners affected by this weekend's flooding. Residents and business owners in Pierce County that suffered damage should call the Department of Emergency Management at 866-798-6363 (toll free). Callers should have the following information available:
- Name and address of the affected property
- Type of insurance (homeowners)
- A description of damage, even if uninsured
- A personal estimate of uninsured losses
- Estimates of the fair market value of the damaged home or business. It is not necessary at this point for property owners to have a contractor's estimate.
The findings from this assessment will be used by the Governor to request a possible disaster declaration and federal disaster assistance from the President. This process could take up to a couple of weeks or more. Federal disaster assistance, if and when it becomes available, only covers uninsured losses.
Among the immediate steps that individuals and families impacted by the floods should take include:
- Call your insurance agent to check on your coverage.
- Keep detailed records of all clean-up and repair costs, including photographs.
- When the time comes to make repairs, be aware of local permit requirements and do a thorough check of potential contractors.

The Ruston-Point Defiance Business District is sponsoring a Goodwill donation truck, which Fuse restaurant has generously agreed to host in their parking lot at 5037 N. Pearl Street. The truck is manned from 8 am until 5 pm this week. If there is enough interest, they will stick around another week.
There are lots more happening with our local businesses... The district is considering sponsoring a shredding party next spring. And the Fuse lot hosted the Cascade Bloodmobile last week, along with the first First Friday for our business district. It was a slow start, but the plan is to continue next month. Shops will be open late until 8 pm on Friday, January 7th. Participating businesses will have red balloons out front and give-a-ways.
In the meantime, shop local and help support our neighbors!
