First 24k gets this haunted house on 1/2 secluded acre

First 24k gets this haunted house on 1/2 secluded acre

The first 24 thousand dollars will get this 3 bedroom haunted house situated on a 1/2 acre lot in the North Tryon/University area. This the deal of a lifetime. You will not find a better value in the Charlotte/Mecklenburg area, and probably all of North Carolina. The owner has lived there for 50 years, and is now wanting to move, so he will not have to mow the lawn and trim the hedges.

The lot itself is valued at roughly twice the selling price. So get a good deal on the lot, and the house is free.

24,000 dollars and it's all yours.

Stan Brennan, "The Rock" of the Charlotte Observer, has died

Charlotte Observer 08/10/2005 Ex-Observer editor was rock of newsroom

Charlotte's Stan Brennan, a former Observer editor who made more friends and shepherded more stories into the paper than anyone can count, died early Tuesday at Carolinas Medical Center-Mercy.

He was 74. Complications from liver disease took him, but not before he filled his life with family, jazz, books, bridge games and a colorful career.

Brennan was the slot man in the newsroom, the calm soul in the middle of a storm who helped oversee the metro desk at night...

In the mid-80s, I worked at the Observer, writing obituaries and the weather page...and sat close to Stan, who was at the center of the Metro Desk. He was, indeed, the rock, and the calm soul...and was one of my favorite people at the paper. He knew how to put people at ease, and with a variety of deadlines, every day, ease and calm was an otherwise rare commodity. I will always remember his jocular laugh, and extraordinary sense of humor. I will miss him. Many will. He was a good man and consummate journalist.

A graveside service will be at 11 a.m. Friday at Sharon Memorial Park, 5400 Monroe Road. Visitation will be at 7 p.m. Friday at Rollins' home, 8513 Tintinhull Lane in Union County.

Peter Jennings: May he rest in peace

Peter Jennings has died.

As I had written back in April, I felt a certain familial connection with the gentleman. This when we learned that he had lung cancer, only a few months ago. But I am sure many people thought of him as family. And I know my dear parents will miss the emails he would send out to subscribers. He was a good man, and my heart is with his family.

One wonders...who will replace him as head anchor on the evening news. Koppel would be the best choice, drawing from their existing pool. Or maybe they could gather enough funds to get Mister Cronkhite off the island...

Short of that, Elizabeth Vargas or George Stephanopoulis are also fine choices.

Good night sweet prince! You have improved this world and are now in a better one.
