Up with People: A Montevideo encore
The last time "Up with People'' came to Montevideo was in April 1997 and Mayor Jim Curtiss rushed the entire cast to work piling sandbags on the city's main levee during the height of the record flood.
A new cast is returning, and the mayor is ready to acquaint them with sandbags as well. Montevideo is facing the prospect of spring flooding again. The mayor hopes they will help fill 100,000 sandbags, just in case.
