Good Morning…
If you missed the news here’s what you missed.

Crowd Control
It’s not clear to me exactly what happened at Evelyn Davis Park last night. Police got a lot of calls about a fight. There were clearly a lot of agitated people there.
It’s also clear there are a lot of people who care about the neighborhood and want to make sure that park is better known as an asset for it’s families than as a place where people fight.

Heroes
It shouldn’t surprise anyone that The Iowa soldier who’s being awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor doesn’t believe he deserves it. I have never read or heard about a hero who thinks he deserves a medal.

Shelley
I never met Jack Shelley but it’s clear why people talk about him with such admiration. The iconic WHOTV broadcaster died at the age of 98 Tuesday.
It was fun hearing about his career at WHO radio and TV. It is a good reminder that we have a responsibility to the people who’ve come before us. They worked hard at giving WHO a rich history. We benefit from that history and reputation.

Busy Week
It’s been a fun week and it’s going to get even busier. Sunday I was happy to be asked to help out at the Concourse D’Elegance at Salisbury house. I learned a lot about European Compact cars.
Tuesday I had a lot of fun helping out with the Young Women’s Resource Center Celebrity Servers Night at Centro. I didn’t do a lot of serving but I talked to a lot of nice people who gave of their time and resources to help out. I was happy to provide a little entertainment.
Tonight there’s an announcement about how much money the Principal Charity Classic raised for local charities. I get to do a little putting contest beforehand so that should be fun.
I mention these things cause it’s the United way’s Day of Action. 3,000 volunteers will make a difference for local charities by donating their time. The point is, it doesn’t matter how small or insignificant you think your contribution to non-profits or charities might be. They appreciate the support and you never know where you’re going to find more ways to contribute.
I hope you have a good day.
