Shining stars a symbol of New Hartford disaster recovery

NEW HARTFORD (KWWL) -- A symbol of the holidays is shining to honor the victims of Iowa's natural disasters.

People in New Hartford placed shining stars in their yards for the holidays in memory of those killed and left devastated in this summer's tornado and floods. Jim Fiddick of New Hartford came-up with the idea and more than 100 New Hartford homes took part.

"Just to drive around by yourself at night and look at the stars and think about all we've been through and how well we've done, and come back for it," said Fiddick, "it is really neat. "

New Hartford hopes to keep showing thier support by lighting up the city every year.
