GREENSBURG, Kan. (AP) _ Greensburg has received a $20,000 grant
that is going toward replacing trees to the tornado-stricken,
south-central Kansas town.
The Hutchinson News reports (http://bit.ly/HGywsq ) Greensburg
officials bought 61 trees with a $20,000 gift to Greensburg from
the U.S. Chamber Business Civic Leadership Center and Siemens USA.
The grant came from winning the Siemens Sustainable Community

An EF-5 tornado destroyed much of Greensburg five years ago. The
tornado also killed 13 people.
Stacy Barnes, museum director and director of tourism for
Greensburg, said the trees are another sign of progress for
Greensburg.
