SIKESTON -- Although a new year has begun, flood survivors continue to cope with grief and losses they suffered last year.

"The water is gone, but the recovery takes time," said Phyllis Rowe, team leader for Show-Me Recovery -- a crisis counseling program funded by a grant through the Federal Emergency Management System and the Department of Mental Health.

Sponsored by Bootheel Counseling Services in Sikeston, Show-Me Recovery is a team of outreach workers who assist people who have been affected by the recent flooding in New Madrid, Mississippi and Scott counties.
