Utility Workers Give Up Their Rooms at Local Hotel

Holiday Inn Express at Stony Brook was booked to capacity, creating a dilemma.

Utility workers from the south slept in sleeping bags on the floor of a hotel ballroom to avoid displacing families who were in need of housing, according to a report published Sunday in Newsday.

Employees of ServPro from out-of-state also gave up their rooms at the Holiday Inn Express at Stony Brook to artists and student athletes who were set to perform a show at Stony Brook's Staller Center and play basketball games at the Sports Complex.

"In comparison to what everyone else is dealing with, it's pretty minor," Chris Teters of the ServPro company told Newsday.

The corpse is apparently well http://www.coachoutletonlinegg.com preserved: a young woman, lying face down, http://www.coachoutletonlineaol.net shielding her face with her hands at the moment http://www.coachfactoryoutletwy.com of death. Her dress has risen up http://www.coachoutletstorefc.com and is tangled around her waist, her bare http://www.coachoutletaol.org legs exposed beneath.She is currently on display at http://www.coachfactoryoutetmp.com the J Paul Getty Museum in Malibu, as the first http://www.coachoutletns.com exhibit in a show that explores the ways that http://www.coachoutletstoreonlineys.net modern artists - from Francesco Piranesi http://www.coachfactoryonlineest.net to Anthony Gormley - have responded http://www.coachfactoryoutletpst.com to history's most famous volcanic eruption. "Welcome to http://www.coachoutletonlinetc.com Pompeii," she is meant to say. "The city of the dead".

This is an awesome story! It's not very often that people are willing to do things for other people, and I'm very impressed with how the employees handled themselves. Their humility also speaks volumes about the kinds of people they are! http://circlevisioncorp.com/fire-restoration/ Konrad
