Today's Birthdays – July 9, 2011




Denise Hluska from The Cricket Box. Your treat will have other goodies too, from great Vicksburg places like The Beechwood Restaurant & Lounge. We would like to wish a very special birthday to a good friend and former road-mate of Vicksburg Daily News’ Chris Whittington.  Rusty Harmon is celebrating his big day today… Message to Rusty from Chris:  Hey dude, I still haven’t been able to get that echo out of my left ear from that Panama City gig on the night that Dave drank the fire water!  Thanks!  It’s like my own personal memento.  Who knew that the knob actually would go to 11?  Happy Birthday, Mr. Sonar!
