Nashvillians David and Beckie Durham are spending their Thanksgiving providing aid to Hurricane Sandy Survivors along the New Jersey shore.
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT) -- Eight Middle Tennesseans are spending their Thanksgiving on the New Jersey coast providing aid to Super-Storm Sandy survivors.
David Durham has been in Atlantic City all week helping homeowners dispose of damaged furniture and tear out water-soaked drywall.
“You can still see the water line on the houses and the buildings. It came up to, in some places, well over three feet – sometimes four feet. So you can pretty much assume that there’s interior damage in all of the houses that you drive by.”

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP/WMOT) — A new nation-wide report shows two-thirds of the college class of 2011 finished school with loan debt, and those who borrowed walked off the graduation stage owing more than $26,600. That's up about 5 percent from the class before.
The latest figures are calculated in a report by The Institute for College Access and Success (TICAS). The report does not include most graduates of for-profit colleges, who typically borrow more than their counterparts elsewhere.
