Hometown Heroes

Mikey, Rich & the boys fought the fire until more help arrived, ultimately saving the building from what could have been a total loss!

MILLVILLE — Quick action from brave bystanders helped mitigate the damage from a weekend fire at the American Legion Post in Millville, according to Post Commander Richard Grobe. Grobe said that people playing horseshoes near the building leapt into action Saturday evening when they saw smoke billowing out of the building's vents. Many people helped break in the back door, briefly battling the flames while others recovered casket flags that had been donated to the post by families who had lost veterans. All 25 flags were recovered, along with other mementoes from inside. No one was injured."Those are casket flags that are put in the case holders on display," Grobe said. "It's quite an honor that they're hanging on our wall — the families donated those because they're a veteran and everything. You have to realize the important of those things." Grobe said the building sustained significant damage. The state fire marshal's office has been called, but Grobe said the fire appears to have started from an electrical issue.

Check it out!

Sergio's the headliner over on Church of Choppers. It was two years ago this time that he was just  wrappin up all the fab work on it. He spent nearly 5 years occumulaing parts through college, only to stash all the stuff at my house while he returned home to Jersey to work. He flew back to Minnesota and lived in my basement for a month while he built it. We dubbed it the "One Way Ticket" since flying back to Jersey wasn't an option. He would have to ride it home. I still remember giving him a firm handshake and a hug, watched him roll out the end of my little gravel alley, all his shit packed on there, headed east.

We had a lot of fun that summer!
