MTYT: What I'd like for Christmas

I'm wearing my Christmas tie today and I'm ready to pass out some holiday wishes for some folks in our area.  Here are a few items I'd like for Santa to deliver this year:

For Mayor Bill Saffo, a major league reason to tell the world why Wilmington is such a great place to live.  But a minor league team and a new riverfront ballpark would be just fine.

For UNCW Chancellor Gary Miller, a winning lottery ticket big enough to help offset those many budget cuts at our local university.

For Commissioner Brian Berger, a personal assistant to try to help get him to his meetings on time.

For UNCW coaches Buzz Peterson and Cynthia Cooper-Dyke, a recruiting class full of tall, quick and talented players.

For Congressman Mike McIntyre, a mud-deflector shield for 2012.  Once that campaign gets underway, you know he's going to need it.

For Jimmy English, our own wildlife rescuer and alligator catcher, a full-time cameraman so he can have his own local reality show.

For Chamber CEO, Connie Majure-Rhett, the "future" that the Cape Fear Future Commission is envisioning. 

And for our many viewers, I hope you find everything you're looking for under your tree.  And I really hope you get to surround yourself with friends and family and have a safe and enjoyable holiday.

Merry Christmas!

That's my turn.  Now it's your turn.  To comment on this segment, or anything else, email me at
