the National Guard were all over
the area doing their part. Cars
were washed onto the sidewalks
and filled with mud. There was
water everywhere, and the stu-
dents described the smell as
“horrible.”
“Even with the masks on you
could smell it,” said Caroline
Landen, a sophomore.
After dropping off their col-
lected supplies at designated lo-
cations, the six students were off
to get their hands dirty. They
walked the streets of Staten Is-
land searching for anyone in
need of help. They helped gut
houses, clear debris and clean up
the broken pieces of the lives of
residents most affected. Landen
said there was so much water
damage that drywall crumbled
in her hands and she was easily
able to put her foot through
once-strong walls.
Miller said the homes were
marked with colored fliers
placed in windows. A green flier
meant the home was safe to live
in. Yellow meant the residents
needed to be cautious because
the home had suffered signifi-

homes the students helped re-

a total loss and could not be re-
turned to. Miller said most of
those homes were completely
off their foundations.
“They were still in shock,”

met. “I just don’t think it hit
them yet that their entire homes
were gone.”

LEHMAN TOWNSHIP
Tax increase proposed
By CAMILLE FIOTI
Dallas Post Correspondent
Township supervisors passed
the first reading of the proposed
2013 budget at their regular
meeting on Nov. 19.
Due to the rising cost of fuel,
insurance and other expenses,
Chairman Dave Sutton said
there willbe aslight increase ofa
fifth of a mill, from 1.25 to 1.45.
The increase equates to roughly
an additional $25 per house-
hold, he pointed out.
A mill is a $1 tax on every
$1,000 of assessed property val-
ue.
The board plans to adopt the
$1.2 million plan at its Decem-
ber meeting.
In other business, the board
voted to refinance a loan used to
fund construction of the new
road department building. The
Pennstar Bank loan, with a bal-
ance of $930,000 at a rate of 4.7
percent, will be transferred to
Franklin Security Bank at a rate
of 3.4 percent. The move will
save the township approximate-

Janerich called shelters,

the police to report she was

But with no collar, she had no
way . of knowing where to
start.

for Beccaina’s Cafe. Chinikay-

showed up on his list of activ-
ity and was seen by another
friend, Josh Morgan.
Morgan posted the photo of
Lillie on Chinikaylo’s Face-

safe.”
And that’s how it all came

The board discussed the idea
of partnering with the Dallas Ar-
ea Municipal Authority to set up
a composting site behind the
municipal building.
DAMA owns a large, portable
grinder that could be set up in
the back parking lot, the board
added.
“What this means, folks,” said
Sutton, “is that everyone can
bring their yard waste here in-
stead of burning in the woods.”
Sutton said the board would
look into whether the property
is zoned for that type of use be-
fore moving ahead.
“This would be a very benefi-
cial thing for DAMA and us since
DAMA doesn’t have a lot of
room,” said Supervisor Doug
Ide.
The board thanked township
EMA coordinator Jim Welby the
township’s emergency person-
nel for helping with emergen-
cies during Hurricane Sandy.
The board also passed an up-
dated version of the dog barking
ordinance.
ENTRANCE EXAM
Saturday, December 1st, Call to Register
recruited some assistance from
three men passing by at the time
who were excited to help. The
men gave the students “I (heart)
Staten Island” t-shirts that were
sold as part of a fundraiser for
the disaster relief.
~ “We laughed a lot and we
made it fun but we were focused
and we knew what we had to
do,” Miller said, “but we always
remained respectful. “
Miller also shared that stu-
dents encountered language bar-
rier difficulties while helping
homeowners, but admitted it
was never hard to see where help
was needed.
After finishing at one home,
Gough said the girls had a con-
versation with the homeowner.
The woman thanked them over
and over and told the girls she
couldn’t express how thankful
she was for their help.
“They needed a lot of help,”
said Landen. “I would want help
if something like this had hap-
pened to me.”
After their long day of helping
those in need, the group of vol-
unteers traveled 40 minutes out-
side the city to Bridgewater, NJ,
where Landen’s mother made
dinner for the group.
Other students who lent a
helping hand include Emily Ku-
dlacik, Parsippany, NJ; Alexan-
dra Graham, Madison, NJ; and
Irene Donnelly, Olyphant.
Misericordia students are
planning other trips to take re-
lief to the victims of Hurricane
Sandy.
Kristen Samuels, Outreach
Coordinator for the university,
said the swim team was sched-
uled to deliver more supplies to
the victims of the storm this past
Saturday.
“We've got lots of generous
students,” said Samuels. She is
hoping the university is able to
send donations steadily until the
students leave campus for
Thanksgiving vacation.
