Huntington Mayor Brooks Fetters (left) shovels sand into a bag held by John R. Eddingfield on Wednesday, April 24, in the show arena at Hier's Park. The sandbags were being filled for use by area residents who were in danger of being flooded after a second round of rain hit the area early this week. Anyone who picked up sandbags to use at their homes or businesses either over the weekend or during the week does not need to return them, says Max Kaylor, head of the Huntington Response Team. The all-volunteer team, which includes Eddingfield as a member, works through the Huntington County Sheriff's Department to provide whatever assistance is needed during an emergency.
