    Thank you Kurt. I've been thinking about Danny all week, wondering what will happen with his ministry program. I saw this woman and her little baby after they had waded through the water to get out of the Desire Street projects, and it just tore at my heart. At least now Danny will have a lot of help in doing his good works.

    I believe I saw the NOLA Mayor wearing a tee-shirt that read, "DESIRE." He should have been wearing one that read, "Dial 9-1-1" or "S-O-S."


    It sounds as though Danny Wuerffel's Desire Street Ministries program is a wonderful thing, and I can understand his passion.

    UF ASSISTING WUERFFEL:The University Athletic Association is pledging to donate $50,000 to Danny Wuerffel's Desire Street Ministries in New Orleans, which was basically destroyed by Hurricane Katrina last week. The proceeds will come from the Gators' pay-per-view game Saturday with Louisiana Tech.

    Wuerffel is the director of development at Desire Street, which provides health, housing, economic development, education and recreation to those living in the surrounding Desire neighborhood.

    Donations to the ministry can be made by sending a check to Desire Street Ministries, P.O. Box 956429, Duluth, Ga., 30095, or going online at www.desirestreet.org.
