School Plans at Enterprise

School will resume next Wednesday for the students who attended Enterprise High School in Alabama.

Staggered high school class schedules will be held at Enterprise-Ozark Community College.

Also, federal disaster aid will soon be available to residents in the tornado-damaged counties in Alabama. Gov. Bob Riley says President Bush has granted the state's request for a federal disaster declaration for six Alabama counties.

The declaration mean citizens and businesses can begin applying for FEMA assistance to help pay for temporary housing, home repairs and storm-related expenses. Low-interest loans also will be offered through the U.S. Small Business Administration to cover other losses not fully insured. FEMA has already opened a disaster recovery center.

Individuals in the six counties who suffered damage on March 1 can call 800-621-FEMA to apply for assistance. The number for the hearing and speech impaired is 800-462-7585.
