All that junk in that trunk

Brendan Walsh writes:
St. Martin's Episcopal Preschool is having a Junk in the Trunk sale Oct. 2 in the church parking lot from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Start saving those items  you want to sell that day, all out of the back of your car or truck (or small table). We are selling parking spots for $20. If you would like to use the whole parking spot to sell your items and park across the street, you are welcome to do so. Have items you want to get rid of but don't want to stick around and sell them? Think about donating them. All proceeds will go to the preschool. Call Stacy Dugan at St. Martin's to reserve a spot: 704-376-8441.

Incident in grocery store parking log

The Crime Dudette writes:
On Sunday evening an incident occurred at our local Harris-Teeter at Central and The Plaza. One of our neighbors went into the store. One of the locks on the car was broken, so she was unable to fully lock her car.  When she came back and got in, she was surprised by a man in the back -- with a gun. The assailant made her drive to the bank to withdraw money, and THANKFULLY, let her go unharmed. His image has been captured on the HT video cameras.
These are photos of the suspect CMPD is looking for in the Harris Teeter incident. They are also looking for this vehicle: 1998 Black Jeep Cherokee displaying NC Tag YRY-7138 

Volunteers needed for Home Tour

Maya Packard writes:
We are 10 days from the Elizabeth Home Tour (Oct. 2-3) and need about 20 more volunteers to help staff the great homes and gardens on this year's tour. Volunteering is easy. You're in a beautiful home (or garden) for two hours (four hours if you'd like a free ticket to see all the great homes) to greet neighbors and tour-goers. It's a great way to see or meet neighbors and make new friends. If you have volunteered, a big thank you! This is a huge fundraiser for our neighborhood so we need a lot of volunteers. To volunteer, simply contact
We had a major computer malfunction and unfortunately two of the home tour spreadsheets with volunteer information were lost for good. If you volunteered for the Garden Trio (E 5th Street) and/or the McThenia/Adams home (2220 E 8th St), please contact with your scheduled time and day. Sorry for the inconvenience--but the computer crashed, we've tried to reconstruct as much as possible but need your help!
