Good Things: December 9, 2010

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Let's take a look at some of the Good Things in the news...

A hidden treasure was found in a Salvation Army kettle in Northern Indiana. Someone dropped a $100 bill into the kettle, but that was just the wrapping. Tucked inside was a gold coin worth $1,400 and a note thanking the Salvation Army for doing "God's work."

Blood centers are always looking for donations this time of year. But this Springfield man is always willing to roll up his sleeves. Larry Harman has been giving blood since the 1960's. Over the years he has donated 35 gallons of blood. The 72 year old also volunteers as an angel flight pilot. He flies patients across the country to get them to doctor's appointments.

And if you have ever wanted to change your name, feel free. An Oregon native born as Douglas Smith Junior has changed his name to Captain Awesome. Apparently he was tired of people mixing up his mail with his father's, so he changed his name to Captain Awesome.
