Subject: Fundraiser for Retiree Captain Larry Whitley.

May 2, 2015 1:00pm - 3:00pm Mt. Moriah Baptist Church will be having a fundraiser for Captain Whitley to help cover expenses for a previous bone marrow transplant. There will also be a bone marrow drive to get more people on the bone marrow drive list. As you know Captain Whitley had a bone marrow transplant July 2013 and it was a success. We would love to have you come out. The drive and fundraiser will be at Mt. Moriah Baptist Church 381 Crestdale Rd. Matthews, NC 28105

This is "old news".  When I retired in 1990 my registration plate indicated HP before the numbers.  The Highway Patrol now displays SHP on their registration plates.  What year did the switch take place?

Make a decision, But always keep your mind open.

Stay flexible and consider the possibility that you're wrong.

There might be a better way.

Like all weak men, he laid exaggerated stress on not changing one's mind.
