    Law enforcement in Hidalgo County would joke that without the drug trade, half the business in the county would fail. Others would say of the region in South Texas that you'd be hard pressed to meet a local who didn't know a drug dealer. The sentiment of the local culture and economy relying on the drug trade would turn from harmless to hostile when the line between drug busters and drug dealers began to blur.

    Mr. and Mrs. Jenkins led a perfectly adequate middle class life in Corsicana, Texas. Mr. Jenkins, Sandy, worked as an accountant at Collin Street Bakery, world-famous for their fruitcakes. Kay, Mrs. Jenkins, was the more outgoing of the two, the one that friends and neighbors actually noticed and didn't mind talking to. Feelings of adequacy and invisibility weighed on Sandy, and were only compounded by his admiration of boss bakery owner, Bob McNutt, a man who reminded him daily that others were respected and were living more luxurious lives than he.

    Katy Vine's "Lost and Found" is a thoughtful and uplifting look into a refugee community in the heart of Texas at a time when political sentiment surrounding refugees and immigration turned increasingly negative. Texas is known nationwide for accepting a high ratio of refugees admitted to the United States. Though most end up in Houston, the smaller city of Amarillo has become a harbor for new immigrants looking to start anew.
