Rebuilding after storms is becoming a growth industry as the United States is slammed by more natural disasters, and leaders of the response efforts say the nation's recovery network functions as well as it does because of a backbone of volunteers nicknamed "disaster junkies."
Faced with growing demands on its police force and no money to add officers, the city of Tioga turned to a solution not often tried in North Dakota. About six months ago, four volunteers with the new Tioga Police Reserve Officer Association took to the streets to back up the city's five-officer police department.

Swenson is among hundreds of grateful clients of the free service offered senior and low-income citizens. It’s a program called VITA, or Volunteer Income Tax Assistance, sponsored by AARP. It’s open to people of this area. Last year, about 600 received help, and this year, Margaret Fish said they should do more than that before the filing deadline in mid-April.
Fish has been the site coordinator since 1999. The service has been offered out of the Campbell Library for years. Before that, it was offered by faculty volunteers at UND.
