Re: “I thought my baseball card collection had value. It did, but only to me.

Now, if you were to have instead spent that money on pokemon cards... you would have come up on the top.
I spent about $30 on pokemon cards when I was a kid, and managed to turn that $30 into $200.
mostly first edition and shadowless cards. But a good number of rare japanese ones at that.

sorry your baseball cards werent worth anything.. :(
I dont think anyone particularly cares about sport cards anymore. Baseball itself is also dying out.

Re: “City says anti-sheriff signs are legal

To GUTSRUS: So you say show us the Evidence...Well Ma'am I have the Facts that are Supported by Evidence to prove that Sheriff Michael David Andrews and several of his Investigators has covered up the Crime that I was a victim of.

So why don't you and everyone call the sheriff's Office and request that the FBI Investigate my claims. The number is 919 560-0897. I have been trying to get the Sheriff to Authorize an Investigation into Him and his Department for 20 months Ma'am.

Think about this, If someone is making serious criminal claims about you and the only way to discredit those claims is to allow an Investigation. Ma'am wouldn't you allow an Investigation to prove that the claims against you were False...I would without any hesitation Ma'am.

There is a reason Sheriff Michael David Andrews is staying far away from the Media and Refusing to allow an Investigation. It's because he knows I have Solid Concrete Criminal Evidence against him and several others.

The Evidence and the Recorded phone calls does Not lie Ma'am.

If you are anyone else would like to review the Evidence I would be Happy to send it to you.

My E-mail address is DURHAMCOUNTY13@AOL.COM

Oh and as for the Signs being Legally placed, Indy week did a story on me about the Signs and the Headline read "City says Anti-Sheriff Signs are Legal" LoL

Ma'am that would be awsome if you and everyone placed signs through out the city expressing your views through the First Amendment. I promise you if you placed them in the correct locations and followed the rules and guidlines the city would NOT remove them.

* Signs can be no larger than 6 Square feet ( 3 feet wide & 2 feet Tall)

* Signs can be No taller than 4 Feet in Height

* You can Only place them in the Right of Ways

* You can only place them on City Property (County property is prohibited)

I encourage you and others to Please exercise your Rights and Place Signs through out the City of Durham.

But please keep in mind you can't say negative things about Private Citizen's such as myself because you can be sued for slander. I am fine with you making signs saying "I Believe he should Stop"

I know your going to say what about your signs saying negative things about the Sheriff, Well Ma'am that's different because he is a Public Official just like President Obama. You are allowed to express negative views about politicians.

Re: “City says anti-sheriff signs are legal

I can't believe that these signs are legal and fall under the guidelines. My gut tells me that if we all started putting up signs along city property they would be removed. I think someone needs to put up signs saying I BELIEVE he needs to quit. I have seen him on TV and heard the story and seems to me he has changed the money amount several times. He states the Sheriff is a criminal and has evidence. Let's see the evidence. Him stating that he doesn't AGREE with the way the investigation is handled does not come close to proving Sheriff or any of his employees are corrupt and a criminal. I am sick of his signs. The Sheriff is an elected official and the people of Durham County elected him even after Lynch posted signs and contacted media. The signs are a disgrace to the city of Durham. I don't blame the Sheriff at all for not wasting his time talking to media or anyone else about this nonsense, Mr Lynch is not helping his case and only makes him less credible, It is a great thing James Michael Lynch is recording conversations....only protects those he talks to and Lynch needs to get a life. He couldn't keep a job because apparently he is too busy building signs and waving to a security camera. Good grief. He should listen to the lyrics of the old song " I fought the law and the law won"!

Re: “City says anti-sheriff signs are legal

@MikeF: The reason we printed this story is because many, many people in Durham have been asking who the "sign guy" is. Our job here was not to prove Mr. Lynch's case, but to explain what his motivations are. Whether he is credible or not is the reader's decision, but for those who are wondering why and how these signs can be (legally) posted all over town—now they know.

Re: “Ed Mitchell's Que lives up to its hype

All live fire smoke, Kirsten. We use a variety of woods, some soaked in cider vinegar for extra flavor. We have a 3-story hood system that makes us able to use live fire smoke on the ground floor of an office building... I'm glad you asked.

Our new menu came out on Saturday, and we have combo plates available for all of our meats.

Also, our hours are:
Sunday-Thursday 11am-9pm
Friday & Saturday 11am-10pm

Mr. Mitchell is never one to speak of himself as legendary. He respects what Pitmasters all over the Carolinas and the country are doing. What he does consider himself to be is an authority on authentic Eastern Carolina Whole Hog BBQ. It's other Pitmasters that label Ed as a legend, and luminaries such as Anthony Bourdain, John T. Edge, Calvin Trillin and Michael Pollan that dug deep and confirm these labels.

Some may disagree, but ain't nothing wrong with enjoying BBQ when you're not in a shack. Come and enjoy!

Re: “Ed Mitchell's Que lives up to its hype

Priority: They need to get more than just 2 single bathrooms for such a busy restaurant! I wouldn't say service was "speedy" in any stretch of the imagination! Food was good although think the Pit and Backyard BBQ are better. Overall a good experience.

Re: “City says anti-sheriff signs are legal

I'm not entirely sure the purpose of this article. Seems like it must be a slow news week at the INDY. Why are you giving this guy a platform to speak his nonsense? My safe was stolen and I don't like the fact that the PD hasn't found it and arrested everyone in existence with any knowledge of such! My descending colon tells me 'It's the neighbor', but it (my colon) can't be called to the witness stand to give testimony. The INDY has such great articles and I kept scratching my head trying to figure what this was doing in the paper. Gut feeling doesn't seem like credible cause.

Re: “Ed Mitchell's Que lives up to its hype

Ed Mitchell is a good pit master, he makes good BBQ.... as far as being "legendary", I would hardly go that far... there are plenty of other places around the Raleigh area that make BBQ that is at least equal to that of Mr. Mitchell's.

The real problem with Mr. Mitchell's BBQ is not it's taste or quality, but it's price..... I have been to The Pit in Raleigh several times and have just been to EMQ and while I have no complaint with either the service or the food (both were fine, although nothing made them exemplary) I do take issue with the price charged at all of his restaurants. If enough folks are willing to pay inflated prices for Mr. Mitchell's BBQ, then I applaud him for being a savvy businessman and properly reading his clientele. But, if Mr. Mitchell should notice that his sales are sagging he should know that the quality of his establishments are not the problem, it is the price.

Re: “Whiskey in downtown Durham is closing Aug. 2

Although I liked the ambiance of the bar itself, I still must say: Good riddance to bad rubbish. Plus, I seriously doubt they met the "cigar bar" exemption that requires at least 25% of total bar revenue to come from cigar sales. I stopped going to Whiskey years ago.

Re: “Whiskey in downtown Durham is closing Aug. 2

@Spusan: We reported that TeerMark was under contract in April, based on a conversation with the prospective owner. If you read the blog carefully, you will see that I noted the TeerMark and the old Ringside are vacant; I didn't make any assumptions about their leasing or ownership status. I would argue, though, that those buildings are commercial failures at present because of the lack activity there.

Posted by Lisa Sorg, INDY Editor on 07/09/2014 at 12:47 PM

Re: “Whiskey in downtown Durham is closing Aug. 2

Wow, can you pass off any more assumptions as facts? I'm surprised that you found out business isn't going well from the same FB message that I read, which says nothing of the sort. If you had done a bit more work, you'd realize that TeerMark is in negotiations to be purchased and the old Ringside building is already leased. Indy, there's nothing wrong with stating some simple facts and saying "The owner could not be reached for further comment."

Posted by spusan on 07/09/2014 at 11:36 AM

Re: “Ed Mitchell's Que lives up to its hype

If the key to good 'cue is the smoke, it begs the question: where is EMQ's smoker? Is there actual smoke involved, or is it just basically slow roasted pork?

Re: “Durham cops lied about 911 calls

People, this is really simple: (1) never let law enforcement in your house. Ask for a search warrant and if none is produced, do not EVER let them in, and (2) if they ask you questions about anything, say you will have to think about it. If pressed, say you can respond in writing to written questions. If further pressed or threatened, politely ask if they have an arrest warrant, if yes, then submit to arrest. If no, declare this conversation to be over but you are willing to cooperate in writing. If they detain/arrest you for questioning "downtown", ask for and get legal representation before speaking or doing anything. Assert your 5th amendment rights. NEVER try to talk your way out of what seems like a temporary problem or else you will talk yourself into a permanent problem (e.g., conviction and jail, think Martha Stewart).

Law enforcement in this country are militarizing and no longer view themselves as serving the people to protect order, law and the civil society. It is us vs. them. Sorry it is this way but it is what it is....

Morgan Canady is the daughter of Beth Winston, currently the investigator in the Capital Defender's Office, previously long-time investigator for the Public Defender's Office in Orange and Chatham Counties---one of the best around for sure, and granddaugther of Barry Winston, esteemed defense attorney in Orange County--also one of the best ever! She got it honest and is carrying on a great family tradition of standing up for the people!

Re: “City says anti-sheriff signs are legal

Well written story. Not sure what mr. Lynch wants the sherrif to do. Sounds like yhe sheriff has investigated it and found no probable cause to make an arrest or link the neighbor or anyone else to the crime. Welsome to our justice system where we cant and dont lock someone up beacause we think the committed a crime. Calling a person corrupt and slandering their good name by posting signs because they didnt get there way is childish. Mr. Lynch needs to stop wasting his money and listen to his friends and drop the slanderish sign waving. If he wants to spend his hard earned money on something productive and doesnt think thst this case was investigsted properly hire a private detective.

This news story was very well written and accurate except for one thing, Special Criminal Magistrate Steven Ronald Storch who is also a Judicial Candidate for Distict Court Judge STOLE 5 of my signs which was my Personal Property.

Steven Ronald Storch is set to appear in court today July 9, 2014 @ 2:00 PM in the Durham County Courthouse,4th Floor, Courtroom C to enter a Guilty Plea and to Apologize to me the Victim.
