VIEWPOINT: Typhoon Haiyan recovery and donation links

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Our hearts and prayers go out to the people of the Philippines who were hit by the typhoon. As charities and governments around the world work to rush aid to the region, we continue to hear news of the devastation and the absence of significant aid. Following experiences like Katrina and the February tornado, the people of the Pine Belt know all too well the devastating effects of a severe storm. Imagine that in a country with little to no infrastructure. The recovery efforts in the Philippines will continue for some time. Please keep those affected by this disaster in your thoughts. If you are interested in contributing to the recovery, go to wdam.com click on the top story for a list of organizations working to get relief to the survivors in the affected region.

This is today's viewpoint.

    Following a school-record 55 wins and run that ended in an 8-7 loss in the NJCAA national championship, Jones County Junior College softball is eager to open the 2018 season on February 3. Coming that close to the school’s first national title serves as motivation enough for the Lady Bobcats. Regardless, expectations are always high for coach Chris Robinson’s teams – JCJC is a combined 105-12 the last two seasons.
