Re: “Treasures from the Shelby Foote Estate Sale!

I met Shelby by accident one night. I was going to a party at my professor's house next door, and knocked on his door by accident. I was a history major in undergrad so I thought that was kind of cool.

Re: “Dowdle Sporting Goods' Great Neon Sign

I don't remember it but you can tell from the photo it was at the Walnut Grove store. The address is shown (2896).

Re: “The Epping Way Mystery

Found this in a CA article from July 17, 1992:

Jamesbridge Apartments, a six-year-old, 432-unit apartment community in the Raleigh area, has sold for $8.64 million or $20,000 a unit. The sale price also included a 10-acre vacant parcel zoned for multifamily use and the former Epping Forest Club.

The recreational club was built to support planned apartments and condominiums in the area. It was supported by memberships, until it closed several years ago. The 10,000-square-foot Epping Forest facility includes eight indoor tennis courts, an Olympic-sized swimming pool, and a small pool. It also includes several lakes on about 60 acres of adjacent land.

I didn't find any stories mentioning any transfer to the MCS.

Re: “Tony's Pizza Man — Mystery Solved?

He sure looks familiar to me, and I vaguely remember seeing him in front of the Tony's on Central, so you may be right, Vance.
