Show Notes for Thursday, October 15, 2020


Dear John,

16 years ago when my very soon to be wife and I decided to buy a house, we felt we were old enough to bypass the starter house and find our forever home. We moved into an old house that had been beautifully maintained and didn’t need any immediate work. Over the last 16 years, we’ve done a lot of work to make it ours and personalize it. Then, about a year ago, some drug dealers moved in kitty corner. Even after several busts by the police and a shooting there, they never shut down for more than a couple weeks. The good neighbors keep moving away because of it. The house next door was turned into an air bnb rather than trying to find someone to live in it, so we never know the neighbors there. In the last two months, I’ve had around $800 of stuff stolen from my driveway. I’ve found meth and needles in my yard. An unresponsive man that was being chased by the cops during a warrant serve was found next to my shed. I’ve got a daughter that I don’t really want to be around this. At what point do we give up on our forever home and move? My daughter goes to private school so that isn’t an issue, but we’ve grown close to our home. I’ve talked to the mayor and police chief, but have never really gotten any answers. Any advice?

Police uncovered 725 pounds of heroin in a truck carrying the pickled garlic and cucumbers.

It’s the must-have power tool of autumn: the electric or gas-powered leaf blower. A real time-saver, right? Not so, says fitness researcher David Powell. Powell says a typical homeowner saves no more time using a leaf blower over a good, large leaf rake — and raking is better for you since you’re burning calories and working a dozen or more muscle groups.

A North Carolina man wielding a machete left satanic messages written in blood on a sorority house at East Carolina University on Sunday night. Officers responded to calls of a man armed with a machete walking in an area of Greenville in apparent distress. The man appeared to have harmed himself and was using his own blood to smear messages on nearby vehicles and the sorority house. “I think it was just cuts, lacerations,” Captain Chris Sutton of the ECU police stated. “Nothing severed but enough to transfer blood onto a couple different surfaces where the individual wrote different messages believed to be satanic in nature and some of the verbiage from some of the things he was saying was also believed to be sadistic in nature.” Officers de-escalated the situation and disarmed the man. Police later identified the man as 25-year-old Patrick Canter. Canter, who is not believed to be a student, is facing charges of injury to real property. (
