Tragic attacks affect local economy
Stranded travelers look for help, diners return after spending Tuesday watching TV and gun sales skyrocket.

Residents find ways to help out in disaster
Some donated blood, while others offered to volunteer their expertise to help disaster victims.

What they're saying
"It was nauseating. Seeing fighter jets flying around New York. We were watching it with some of the older teachers here and no one here has ever seen anything like it."

Some find doctor's comment upsetting
SPRING HILL -- A foreign doctor caused a stir at Oak Hill Hospital on Wednesday when he told colleagues that the United States got what it deserved when terrorists attacked the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, hospital CEO Jaime Wesolowski confirmed.
