HOWES CAVE - More than $500 was raised by a local business in Howes Cave to help Schoharie's first responders.

Bill Felter and David Ward of Rubbin' Butts BBQ are both sons of first responders -- and Ward is a volunteer firefighter. They decided to donate half of Thursday night's take to the men and women who raced to the scene of the deadly crash - to help however they could.

"I can't imagine what they're going through. I was at a few when I used to be a volunteer fireman, nothing like this." admitted Ward. "They're all people just like you and I. They're volunteering to do this to help you out. They can't get enough support."

Ward and Felter say at some point, first responders typically need some talk therapy to help them get through what they experienced. They're encouraging the community to show support any way they can.
