Wapella.com congratulates Brant "BJ" Obermeyer and former Wildcat Mindy (Burris) Obermeyer, on the birth of their second son, Sean William.

Born at 10:17pm on July 17th, he weighed in at 8lbs, 3ozs and is 19.5 inches long. Welcome Sean!

BJ is a Clinton native, but has held dual citizenship in Wapella since the late 80's. Son of Jim and Linda Obermeyer, and Grandson of famed Clinton seamstress Mrs. Wolfe. Mindy (Class of 93) is the daughter of Wapella graduate and Wildcat Linda Burris and is granddaughter of the legendary Wildcat tandem of Betty and William "Bob" "Twister" Burris.

Congrats BJ, Mindy and Sam, as well as to all the Obermeyer and Burris clans!

Congrats Mindy, but did you name your son after your old neighbor, from a distinguished family of plumbers in Wapella?

Congrats BJ and Mindy! I believe naming her first son Sean was a Waynesville-style agreement that originated in high School. If I remebr right the terms correctly, they were that Mindy gave Sean $2 for lunch (everyday) in exchange she named a son after him.

Didn't make too much sense to me either, but when Brian West explained it to me, it seemed oddly clear.
