This is why I love Moses Lake

Remember the family that suffered a tragic fire on Saturday? All that remain now are the mother and a 1-year-old baby; two chidren died in the fire, and the father died trying to save them. Well, there's no way to bring them back, but the neighbors didn't abandon the survivors, either. So far, folks in town have set up two donation accounts at local banks, collected contributions of clothes and toys, loaned the family a storage unit for what little they have left, and donated a duplex, rent-free, for them to live in while they get back on their feet!

There are some good people in this town, and I'm proud to call them my neighbors.
