Neal keeps Katrina top of mind

-A A +A
By Jennifer Raymond

In one day, you can lose everything.

Many people learned this lesson on Aug. 29, 2005, the day Hurricane Katrina made landfall on the Gulf Coast.

It is a day many of us have put behind us, but not the victims of that massive storm.

Homes and buildings were leveled, and 1,836 lives were lost, mostly in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.

A Rockwood city councilman is one of those who has not forgotten.

James Neal, who is also a general contractor, is one of the many volunteers who has spent time in the areas devastated by the storm.
