Vice President of Paraphernalia

Choice lines from today’s Collegian article about Uni-Mart closing:

“Uncle” Mike Hultberg, vice president of Jamaica Junction, 111 S. Pugh St., also said he will miss Uni-Mart’s proximity to his store.

“Now if we forget something, we’re going all the way to McClanahan’s,” Hultberg said, “Which isn’t saying much, except when you’re busy … it’s a whole other world.”

First, what’s with the “Uncle”?

Second, who knew Jamaica Junction had a vice president? Does he take over for the president when he’s high sick?
