  • Mike discovered (to his disgust) that the government was threatening to fine the owners of the desvastated homes $500 oer day if they did not cut their grass. This order came from the same government that relocated all of the homeowners to the four corners of the country while their homes were supposed to be rebuilt... but weren't.

  • It was revealed that one of the main reasons why the Ninth Ward was not receiving any government help was that no one was moving back into the area. The reason why no one was moving back into the area is because they weren't getting any government help.

  • For the new houses being built in the Lower Ninth Ward, Mike insisted that they all be equiped with geo-thermal climate control systems. They allow the houses to heat or cool themselves using the constant temperature of the ground from 250 feet under the house. In addition, solar panels would be used to provide most of the electricity the homes would need. The result of these two measures is that the homeowners would have their utility costs cut by over 80%.
