They had a store in Lapeer at one time. I think its the one where a freak storm blew down a power line that was directly overhead, and the store and lumber sheds all burned to the ground.

Investigation showed they had violated code and put the building under the lines, and it was a total financial loss for them.

"The Lone Ranger was a WWI decorated hero. Brace Beemer was in junior high in Vincennes, Indiana when he lied to the recruiting officer about his age to enlist in the Army. At 14 years, 4 months and 12 days old, Beemer, who would later be the radio voice of the Lone Ranger, was thought to be the youngest soldier in World War I. He was assigned to the field artillery of the 42nd Division, the famed "Rainbow Division," under Col. Douglas MacArthur. Beemer was gassed at Chateau-Thierry, France, on May 27, 1918, received the Purple Heart and returned home with the rank of sergeant."

The real Lone Ranger was a black dude.

Donald duck.

Not the cartoon character, the WW2 Marine who spent 2 days playing dead and 2 nights crawling back to friendly position after being overrun.

Lots of dead on Iwo, he wasn't one of them.

According to your stats, A buck is about buck where I live.
Invest that in the government corruption around here and you're golden.
