Thought I'd point out that we have at least one celebrity member among us. Andy McKinney is the owner of WIND-NC
, and the "Lost-in-Hatteras

The studs, geezers and studly geezers from MI were rewarded with prime Hatteras conditions all day long today. Guys were on 4.0-5.0's in the moring, and then even some 3-somethings in the afternoon.
Nothing left at the end of a good day:…

Please take a look at Tom's post in the Wind Talk forum. He's looking for help to keep the Lexington Wind Talker going. Maybe you know a small business who would like to help? Or maybe you can help yourself?
