Seventeen Ellis and Thorne family members lost everything in the storms of Katrina and migrated from New Orleans, Louisiana to Longmont, Colorado a short time after the Katrina disaster. They have made this their new home becoming business people and active community members. Sheryl Thorne (cq) vacuums before the opening bell. She arrives at 7:30am with her husband, Lester, to begin preparations for the days meal at the Loaf and Ladle restaurant they own on Thursday August 23, 2007 in Longmont, Colo. at 1134 Francis St. Lester's sister Kristin married Tim Ellis. They bought the restaurant from their parents in 2002 and are working a schedule allowing them to spend time with their kids. The store is open for lunch M-F 11-4. The remainder of the Ellis/Thorne family migrated here because of the restaurant connection. (STEVEN R. NICKERSON/ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS) Sheryl Thorne (cq)
