Re: “VFW Post 7383

My name is Amy Sullivan and I am proud to be a member of the VfW Post 7383 in Cary, NC. My mom and dad were members of the VFW for many years. My mom was Past President two times of a VFW lLadies Auxiliary post, not this VfW post in particular, but they enjoyed very much being members of VFW Post 7383. My mom and dad were active members in the post as is my daughter Stacy Mcdade. Stacy has a son named Brayden who is six years old. He attends many VFW events in which are great learning experiences. Brayden wears his great grandfathers favorite hat in which hangs off it medals for bravery that were presented to his great grandfather who was a WWII veteran who served in North Africa and Korea. My dad instilled in me to stand up for your rights and that freedom is not a given many sacrificed their lives so we can enjoy our freedom, The members of the VFW Post 7383 does such great work in helping veterans and their familes which include many great fundraisers. One of which is special to me the Cancer Walks we participated in which my daughter Stacy Mcdade helped in planning and implementing them. I am very proud of my daughters accomplishments. Stacy does not know that I am writing this article. A friend of my daughter has cancer and has a son close age to Brayden. I was hoping she would join the post as she contributed some meaningful signs that are used at some of our events. The news of this friends cancer brought back a memory to me of a woman named Alana Giordano who was fighting cancer and a custody battle in which a Judge named Nancy Gordon listened to a custody evaluator named Helen Brantley state to the effect that the children should live with their father in a world free of cancer and illness. judge Nancy Gordon listened to the evlauator Nancy Gordon no longer serves as a family court Judge in the court in Durham, nc but I believe only as a visiting court judge. . Veterans have many illnesses including cancer so if a Veteran would have been in Nancy Gordons court battling cancer in a custody case or other illness whoever didnt have the illness or cancer should win. I was reading that Nancy Gordon was trying to get a veterans court I believe it was that if veterans commit a certain crime they would go to this court and perhaps be assigned someone to help them as they may need mental help. She also made reference that some are homeless. Veterans need jobs perhaps we can focus on getting them a job education etc. Veterans follow the law i suggest that Nancy Gordon should do the same in reading about the veteran court which I read a lot of articles on Veterans as my parents did I came across Nancy Gordon business of selling baskets filled with different things which include liquor. I followed this up and Nancy Gordon was issued a violation and abc commission is investigating . I have a copy of the violation. No one is above the law . VFW Post 7383 is a wonderful post that does such good work.

Re: “Coalition to Unchain Dogs

What can be done about someone leaving their dog out in the heat day and night. It is in fenced yard, but seldom gets any attention. Gets food and water, but very little contact with owner. It seems terrified. I personally think it is to hot for a dog to be outside. The person also ties her little Maltese outside all day long in this heat.

Any suggestion would be appreciated. I have spoken with her, but to no avail.

Thank you, Donna Hoggard.

Re: “City of Durham Neighborhood Improvement Services Dept

Very Unprofessional Field Agent, I have owned severalrental properties in Durham County over the past 9 years and I've only had to dealwith neighborhood improvement services only three times. My first two dealings with neighborhood improvement services were very straightforward in the field agent was very communicative, very tactful and was focused on resolution vs conflict.unfortunately my most recent dealing with Durham County neighborhood improvement services has been nothing short of a complete headache.repairs were done in a timely fashion, yet the second inspection done by the field agent Michael Vaughn did not note any of the work as completed,also to note the second inspection was scheduled the day before Thanksgiving which was very inconvenient for both my tenants as well as myself.To make matters worst,I received over 9 letters from Durham County neighborhood improvement services stating the exact same thing regarding the second inspection. The gist of which did not reflect any of the work that had been completed, its in my professional opinion that writing anyone 9 certified letters is harassment and a complete waste of city funds.as a property owner I understand the importance of combating slumlords and providing a quality environment for tenants, but criminalizing property owners as slumlords is counterintuitive to increasing quality housing in Durham County.

Re: “Kerry Catherine Jewelry

Tarnished and irreparable. That's how I'd describe my relationship with Kerry Catherine Jewelry.

My husband has purchased at least 7 pieces of jewelry for me from Kerry Catherine Jewelry over the past 8 years. Formerly, we were satisfied customer of this business. We used to feel special at the store because of the employees, the customer service, and the unique designs. They would often recognize us by name and treat us as precious customers.

That all changed this summer when I went in to have a pair of Kerry Catherine Jewelry pearl earrings repaired and to look for another, new pair of yellow-gold earrings. I interacted with the male co-owner. I now feel foolish for not leaving when I received a quote of $150 to repair a pair of pearl earrings that I've owned for only 2 years. I was confused about the cost and the extra repair services, which sounded experimental (and that I later learned are a short-term repair that can cause long-term damage). I expected it would cost around $50 to reset the pearls. However, since I'm a long-time customer of Kerry Catherine Jewelry, and I've had good experiences in the past, I trusted and went ahead, despite my gut feeling and the condescending and rude way that the male co-owner spoke to me.

Subsequent follow-ups were upsetting and frustrating. Originally, the male co-owner told me he'd be in touch within a week about the new earrings. When I called after 2 weeks to check on status (in a normal way, as a normal customer does), he yelled at me about how I was treating him, how he didn't know where my earrings were in the process, and that I was causing other customers to leave the store (during our 6 minute conversation). Um, what?! Dude, customers are leaving because you're screaming at another customer on the phone. I asked to speak to the female co-owner, but that just enraged him further. Yikes.

When my husband later went in and asked to speak the female co-owner, the male co-owner called the police. What?! I emailed the female co-owner about the craziness, no reply. When my husband called a week later (because I was too scared to call), the female co-owner told him my earrings were ready and she was planning to call me. Um, ok? I never received that call, but I did get an email from the male co-owner telling me that he would call me eventually to schedule pick-up and that my husband and I should not call the store. That was the only communication I ever received from Kerry Catherine Jewelry during the entire ordeal. Finally, after 5 weeks I had an escort from a (wonderful) North Hills Public Safety officer, I paid $160.13 for my earring repair, and picked up my earrings all while being lectured again by the male co-owner. Afterwards, I felt like should have a stiff drink to recover.

My husband and I did our best to try dealing with the female co-owner directly, since she has been nice in the past (and the business is named for her), but the male co-owner was unavoidable, irrational, paranoid, and a long list of other negative adjectives. For several weeks, I wasn't certain I'd ever get my property back.

I have some very basic expectations from a business that unfortunately, in my experience, Kerry Catherine Jewelry doesn't share.

So friends, I rescind any positive recommendation I ever made for this business. Please accept my apologies.
