SC ice cream shop gets thank you call from Biden

SC ice cream shop gets thank you call from Biden By David Louie 11 Nov 2010 The Penny Ice Creamery in Santa Cruz must get too busy to answer phone calls sometimes because it has one of those automated systems that requires callers to press a digit to get its address or the flavor of the week. If you press 3, you get to a store employee. Somebody from Washington, D.C. did that yesterday. It was Vice President Joe Biden. Biden called owners Kendra Baker and Zachary Davis to thank them for posting a video that credits the federal stimulus program for helping to finance their business. Baker and Davis qualified for a $250,000 loan from the program.
