Preserving a piece of US Maritime History - invaluable

The USS Olympia is a cruiser that fought in the Spanish American War in 1898 and has been preserved in Philadelphia. She's a one of a kind ship, a national historic monument, and in danger. She needs approximately $10-15 million in repairs to keep her a viable museum for years to come. If you have the resources, or connections to those resources, please consider helping. (full disclosure - there is no financial benefit to me to ask the question - we need to save this ship for posterity). Please contact me at 612-599-1935 or if you have additional questions.

This is a bad luck family in Minnesota - funny! (please note the last sentenct! -sorry to digress from Navy issues)

Andover Man Survives Lightning Strike

Severe weather rolled through the metro and central Minnesota on Sunday. One Anoka County man says he'll never look at storms the same way again.
Chip Richards was struck by lightning while standing outside his Andover home. Richards was on his backyard patio taking down an umbrella when he was hit. Richards was knocked to the ground and rushed to the hospital. He checked out fine but still has a headache.
Richards grandfather was struck by lightning twice years ago and survived.
