Revisiting Bartlett

I revisited Dean Doty and his wife, Carol, in Bartlett Iowa as they continue the daunting effort of sifting through the rubble left from the monumental flooding this past March.

The River Stakes Its Claim

Last Thursday, Dean Doty caught a last minute flight from Phoenix to Omaha to try to save his home. The following morning Doty and his wife attempted to to beat the raging waters of the flooded Missouri River as they rushed to their hometown of Bartlett Iowa. The levels were rising so quickly, they were only able to retrieve a few items before the town succumbed. Doty and his wife fled the town safely, but he believes his house was completely submerged and is a total loss.
