GateHouse National News Service Budget 5.8  morning (All times are central)

VOLUNTEERS – From the moment the sirens blared Friday night to warn residents of Greensburg, Kan., of the monster tornado blowing toward them, folks in the area sprang into action to lend a hand. And the volunteer force has been building ever since. We talk to volunteers at the shelters and at agencies in the area to see what drives them to action, when other people are content to watch these disasters on TV. ARKIN/GHNS

WITH: short breakout on how you can help (nationally, just send cash, etc.)

BUSH VISIT – Short advance on president’s expected visit to Greensburg on Wednesday. PRATT TRIBUNE (note: GHNS will cover this Wednesday for Thursday)
