Today’s Good News: Restaurant Staff Tipped $10k



A group in Marathon, Florida had breakfast at a place called Castaway Restaurant . . . ran up a $193 bill . . . and tipped the staff $10,000.  A total of 14 employees split it, so just over $700 each.

Someone in North Carolina randomly found some World War Two medals in a dumpster that belonged to a guy named Donald Helfer who died in 1993.  And his kids were thrilled to find out . . . because they had no idea he was a war hero.  He flew almost 30 flights into enemy territory, but never talked about it.  It turned out he received a Bronze Star, a Flying Cross, and a thank-you letter from President Truman.
