MNR follow-ups…

Stuff I couldn’t fit in today’s MNR:

  • Got an e-mail back from Zack Liles and he said he’s an infantryman stationed with the 1st Ranger Battalion in Savannah, Ga. I can send you his e-mail address if you’d like to write to one of the true heroes from this area.
  • Happy birthday to arguably this blog’s most faithful follower: Heelatious (B.J. Davis). Although he’s a Carolina fan and has a crazy brother, he’s still a pretty good guy and one of my favorite people in Lenoir County. Happy birthday, dude!
  • And another happy birthday to one of our long-timers — Jeff Howard! Ol’ Jeffrey recently became a grandfather, but he doesn’t look a day over 30. Good genes, I guess, and the great way he takes care of himself. Happy birthday, dude!
  • Our good friend Randy Capps posted this last week and I forgot to put it on here – but it is an awesome anecdote about his wonderful son. Last year, the HB and I were part of Ethan’s Angels and we’re also a part of the team again this year; I’m going to set up a donation page next week and I’m likely going to give away two tickets to the sold-out N.C. State-ECU football game as a prize for donating. When I get the details ironed out, I’ll post ‘em next week.
