I applaud the effort of a new local task force — called Rebuild Napa —which was formed to lend a helping hand to those forced to rebuild their homes/lives following the October fires. The group was started by Cherie Lubash, Todd Lubash, Mike Adams and Jenny Gass.

Their goal is to offer trustworthy, vetted lists of local businesses and services to help those needing to rebuild, hopefully reducing the fraudulent and unfair practice/price gouging by out-of-town contractors and...
