This family from only 2 miles west of New Orleans is now homeless from the hurricane. They were passing through Gainesville on Saturday and stopped at a Wal-Mart parking lot hoping to gain enough gas money to make it to Orlando where they want to start a new life. Father of the family, Chuck Power, said he felt embarassed holding a sign and asking for food but there was no other choice. His children though, they had made a game out of it and had a good time telling me stories and showing me magic tricks.
