        Check all of yours for us, Kurt! It's SEC tournament time and I gotta watch the Cats in 2 1/2 hours.

          I've heard talk about getting the AFG program back to the spring but they do not seem to be trying very hard. The first 1199As (non-EMS) last year came out on March 28, so they are not gaining any ground time-wise. Oh well, I guess they will come when they come, nothing we can do but wait.

            I would be hard pressed to say they are not trying very hard. Lots have to come together before the grants start.

              I totally agree, I am sure they are working very hard on the 2016 grants. What I meant was the rumored catch-up to get AFG back to the spring. I realize that all depends on funding issues and other things that are difficult to control. Just getting a little anxious.

                Remember they are dealing with a new DHS secretary, new FEMA director and continued close scrutiny fomr GMS and OMB.
