Couple finds “squatters” at their tornado-damaged home
Written by Tammy Walro

When John and Pat Jett were displaced from their Moline home after the June

5 tornado, they secured the house as best they could to prevent any further loss from looters that might come around.

The couple didn’t consider that squatters might come and take up residence at their unoccupied house, but that’s exactly what they found when they went to check on the home a few days after the twister.

It had been a whirlwind week for them. When the tornado hit, the Jetts were at home with their 10-year-old granddaughter, Samantha (Sami). “We had been watching TV since about 6 o’clock, so we knew bad weather was coming,” Pat said. Samantha’s parents, Marlene and Dan, were with 6-year-old Dakota at their home, located just a block over in the Indian Creek subdivision.

The Press encourages responses to articles and opinions. In order to provide for fair comment, The Press will have the following policy covering election letters to the editor:

The last issue for letters will be the second issue (July 26) before the August election. No letters will be published in the August 2 issue immediately prior to the (August 3) election except for letters limited to direct rebuttal of election-related issues appearing in the second to last issue

No new political information can be introduced in the issue immediately before the election. This is to prevent factual inaccuracies without a fair chance for correction.

Letters are limited to issues. The Press does not print letters about candidates’ races.

Letters should be no more than 300 words and include a phone number and address for verification purposes. No anonymous letters will be printed. The deadline is Wednesday, Noon.

3 companies eye Oregon for sites

Three businesses plan to locate in the City of Oregon if permit filings in the city’s building and inspection department are any indication.

According to records in the department, representatives of ALDI, Inc., Mattress Firm, Inc., and Gateway Recycling and Reduction, Inc., have filed for permits needed to either construct a building or move into existing structures.

ALDI, a discount grocery chain, intends to construct a 17,887-square-foot building at 3728 Navarre Ave.

The estimated construction cost is $1.1 million.

Jim Gilmore, commissioner of the building and inspection department, said the company has indicated it intends to use the front third or so of the 9.5-acre parcel for the building, which would sit across Navarre from a Walmart store.

Seven structures on the parcel will be razed, according to the permit.

ALDI opened 100 stores across the country in 2009 and said then it planned to open 100 stores this year, about a third of those in Texas, according to its website.
