Keep in Mind: FEMA has extended the deadline into January for Flagler County Hurricane Ian survivors to apply for federal disaster assistance: The Federal Emergency Management Agency has extended the deadline until January 12. The Disaster Recovery Center is in a large tent located near the arena in the center of the fairground’s property, 150 Sawgrass Road, Bunnell. Hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Disaster Recovery Centers serve as FEMA’s local outreach offices to provide disaster survivors with information from it, as well as from Florida state agencies and the U.S. Small Business Administration. Survivors can get help applying for federal assistance and disaster loans, update applications and learn about other resources available. Survivors can apply for disaster assistance at disasterassistance.gov, by calling 800-621-3362 from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Eastern Time, or by using the FEMA mobile app. Those who use a relay service such as video relay service (VRS), captioned telephone service, or others, will need to provide FEMA the number for that service. Those who have insurance are encouraged to file a claim for damages to homes, personal property, and vehicles before applying for FEMA assistance. FEMA cannot duplicate other sources of assistance may have been received.
Notably: Pearl Harbor, of course, but also the Armenian earthquake of 1988, when 60,000 people–25 times as many people as at Pearl Harbor–were killed, prompting the Soviet Union’s first overt request for aid from the United States since World War II. Gorbachev was leading the Soviet’s last days at the time. Armenia was not yet its own country. Reagan was happy to oblige, scoring another coup in the last days of his senile-slouching presidency.

One battle in which Borglum did prevail, however, was over the addition of more faces to Rushmore. It was not a close fight, but it was not an easy one either-and to some extent it has never really ended. Over the years, various groups have come forward with proposals to add another great man to the Rushmore four- Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, John Wayne, Elvis Presley and each time the Park Service has had to hold its ground. Of all the campaigns to turn four faces into five, by far the most fascinating and formidable was the one to initiate a woman into the men’s club.
–From John Taliaferro’s Great White Fathers: The Story of the Obsessive Quest to Create Mt. Rushmore (2002).
