For tornado survivors, 'Cowboy' offers a listening ear

DAWSON SPRINGS, Ky. — Dave Graham is standing beside the ruins of a gas station...just down the street from one of the hardest-hit parts of town. "You can do it!" he shouts to people in cars passing by – many hauling what's left of their belongings. "You can do it! You guys will rebuild, you will!"
Graham is tall, with graying hair and a beard, wearing a cowboy hat and jean jacket. He cheers people on as they drive in and out of a neighborhood that's has been reduced to piles of debris. "You can see it - if you start watching, you can see it on their faces," he says.
