Sybol Close and her family, that consists of 8 children and 5 adults are now staying at the shelter at the First Baptist Church in Greenville. The fuse box that brings power into her home was destroyed by the Ice Storm. She was advised by the utility company that she would need to be brought up to code before they would restore power to the home but that involves re-wiring the whole house. Close cannot afford it and is now looking for another place to live.

    Someone send this article to the Owensboro Messenger…so local folks can read about this. I e-mailed it to the editor several days ago…nothing happened. I am sure there is a local electrician who will help these people.

    This entire story is sad…..KU didnt mind collecting her money with the old meter for seems if she would sign a waiver or something assuming responsibility….. they could restore things as they were.
