Ronnie was most impressed that a “biker club”, Coalition of Independent Riders, who are keeping the people afloat. They are providing food and cooking in a huge tent every day. Everyone Ronnie asked told him THEY were the most hands on with helping the survivors.

Ronnie met 6-year-old J.W. Hoke, 6, who tells him about his bicycle that was destroyed in one of the areas hardest hit bythe May 2013 tornados. Ronnie says ‘JW (my son’s nickname) a “pistol”, brought his bike over. We twisted on it a little but it’s pretty much a goner. He has a new one.’ Watch J.W give a tour of his area and explain what happened.
