Extreme Makeover Home Edition Kids Get Two-Thousand Dollars in Gifts

They are still putting the finishing touches on the inside of the new home for the Coopers in Jamesville as the crew at Extreme Makeover Home Edition begins to wrap up their stay here in Eastern Carolina.

Saturday Windy Cooper and her brother Aaron were surprised with more gifts from the community.

Gifts included a Bible, a flag flown over the Capital of the United States from Senator Burr, and motocross equipment mainly for Windy Cooper who is a huge fan of the sport. The motocross equipment was valued at two-thousand dollars.

Windy Cooper was surprised when motocross star Ashley Fiolek
showed up from Florida.

The Coopers say they appreciate everything the community and the show have done for them.

Windy says, "I know the gifts that have been given have been given from the heart. I know that everything that has been donated has been done from the heart not just to get a name out. It was done because they care."

The episode will be broadcast on ABC on May 3.

    Show airs tonight. I'm really hoping to hear a thank you from Mr. Cooper to his community, while watching the show. So far, I haven't heard zip from him.

    I don't know why WITN didn't post my last comment. All I was trying to say is, Tad ain't mad. I happily avoided any damage to my happy home or my property. Hope Larry gets some satisfaction out of all those wonderful, loving, caring and giving folks who contributed to his problem. Especially Ty...opps barfed again. We all know from reading the posts on this site that Ty is so personnally invested in these projects that surely he will spend just a little more of his personal fortune to help poor Larry. Yeah...that's it.

    I have totally forgot what Coach and Tad are mad about. Or are they mad. We all have our opinions, but life is to short to fight over them. I just want the family to know what this has done to the community and how the people feel about this.

    Tad: Well, maybe you should, LOLOL Again with the kindergarden posts. Responding to things people never say and resulting to calling them names or misspelling their's in order to hide your lack of intellegent comments. If you are mad that nobody fixed your yard, hire a lawyer. Man, how I'd love to chat with you over a cup of coffee sometime. LOLOLOLOL

    Jim, sometimes the only thing under a rock is the ground. Stop looking for your pet issues in everything. Reality trumps your silly, worn out idealism.

    I don't think it is a racial thing, i did not get that out of his answer. I do however, think it was and is about how so many feel about this family. I hope they realize what this has done to so many people. I have yet to see a "thank you" except from the children. That is sad. This community gave alot and for what? The good thing for the ones that help, is the good Lord knows what the intentions were with the people helping and with the family. No one from the show will return to help Larry, so we need to all move on. They got the house, Larry has a messed up yard and we can't do a thing about either. Unfortunately.......It would be nice if we could go back to before the house was built and make some changes, but we can't. Maybe we will all, someway, somehow, get something out of all of this.

    n, I never hit the backspace key. Apparently you give yours a workout and think everyone else does the same. I don't. I also don't fish or deal with the everyday perils of the ghetto. No problems here that we need your services for or advice on there, ..n. Most likely all the swelled hearted nitwits who came here trying to see ty-barf or get on TV will not return to help Larry or the other neighbors with property damage get straight so we will handle it. I'm sure you have enough street crime, gang activity and poverty to occupy you right there in Rocky Mt so we'll leave you to it. With all of your giving, forgiving, lack of judging and refusing to hold others to any standards, I'm sure you will have those social ills proliferating in no time. It's all about advancing the ball n, and you guys are driving.

    Tad: LOL Wonder how many times you had to hit backspace to correct your babble. Are you still in school? Sounds like middle to me. I know that in Jamesville about the only thing you have to worry about is s-1 getting your fishing spot.
