Belmont Greeks Paying It Forward - 04/11/14

  Friday, a new Twitter follower got my attention and put a smile on my face.  The follow was from @askPhiTau.  They've got a Facebook page too.  It's facebook.com/askphitau.  They're a group of students at Belmont University here in Nashville who are essentially saying we want to help make this a better community. 
  The message is simple, if you need a ride, post and we'll try to help; moving out of your dorm room and need an extra pair of hands, let us know.  There's even a mention of help to locate a tutor.  It's a far cry from the stereotypical fraternity mantra. 
  It appears to be a new effort.  Check out their short video on YouTube.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q3ut-TA96r4&feature=youtu.be  I hope this post lets a few more people know these guys are out there.  Here's hoping this brand of paying it forward is contagious.

HONG KONG-ROLLS ROYCE

HONG KONG (AP) -- A Hong Kong tycoon is on a roll -- or make that a Rolls. Stephen Hung is placing the biggest order ever for Rolls-Royce cars. He's dropping 20 mil to buy 30 Phantoms. The luxury rides will be used to chauffeur high-rollers at a resort he's building in the global gambling capital of Macau. Rolls-Royce says two of the cars will be the most expensive Phantoms ever commissioned, complete with "gold-plated accents" inside and out.

DISNEY-FROZEN

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) -- Walt Disney World is planning to get "Frozen." The Florida theme park is adding a new attraction inspired by the ever-popular "Frozen" movie. Guests will go to the fictional land of Arendelle and experience recreated moments and music from the film. The pavilion will include an area where guests can meet the movie's sister characters Anna and Elsa.

HARPER-FAN EJECTED

ATLANTA (AP) -- You're outta here! But the ejection at the Braves-Nationals game wasn't a player. The ump booted a fan Tuesday night. Umpire Tim Welke tells the AP a foul-mouthed fan was heckling Washington outfielder Bryce Harper. Welke says he saw the fan come down to the backstop and start shouting profanity in the sixth inning. Welke had him removed from Turner Field in Atlanta. The longtime crew chief says Harper thanked him the next time he came up. Welke adds, "enough is enough."
