The man, whose name wasn't released, was in fair condition Wednesday at an area hospital, Bondarek said.

    Wait, that is some breaking news Mugu just posted - Noone died! Peter Noone, found of Herman's Hermits, dead at age 62. So far, that has not made the headlines here.

    Noone died? I hope everyone goes to jail for a while so the fine people of the great state of NC do not have to hear about such hooliganism.

    Well hey, I've been known to break up a good fight in a bar or pool hall a time or two myself.

    Stuff happens.

    Blessed no one was killed, and praying for those injured.

    God bless.
