Attack on Pearl Harbor from a Japanese planes viewIt is the day [at 7:48 a.m. HST] that the Empire of Japan attacked the United States of America at Pearl Harbora day which lives in infamy.

Today, we remember the 2,402 Americans killed and the 1,282 Americans wounded there [the losses by both sides can be viewed here].

I will never forget…

History ~ Point News [Hay & Old Street, Fayetteville, North Carolina], 12/04

Point News

Try as I might, I could not remember the name of the business at this location in the ’50s & ’60s. I ask a friend at the guy [Rev. Bernard Hayes]. He remembered–Point News. Research and “voila” and I find history and the photograph above. Below are pictures I took recently at the intersection of Hay and Old Streets–across from the United Methodist Church. The building at the point dates back to 1853 and housed the Fayetteville Mutual Insurance Company.
