- As a photojournalist my principal interests are spot news, fires, etc. I also like to see the humor in everyday situations. In my 42 years as a photojournalist I have seen a lot of people die. First, during the Salvadoran Civil War, and since then, on some of the 'mean streets' of my adopted hometown......still, a great little town all the same!

Durham SET Team officers take William Yohe into custody at his house on Barnsdale Ct. in the Hope Valley Farms sub-division. Mr. Yohe had threatened a security guard by indicating that he would shoot him with a shotgun, then barricaded himself inside his residence when officers responded to the call. After lobbing almost two dozen tear gas canisters into the home, officers stormed the front door, and after breaking down the reinforced door, they were finally able to overpower Mr. Yohe and take him into custody.
Firefighters work to extinguish the fire after a driver died in a head-on collision while being chased by State Troopers early Saturday morning. The driver fled a DUI checkpoint in the vicinity of N. Adams St. at Joyland about 2.30 am. Troopers chased the driver eastbound on NC 98 at speeds in excess of 100 mph until the suspect car ran head-on into a furniture truck near Southview Rd. The driver of the truck and a companion were injured but not critically. At least one of the troopers also crashed at the scene when his cruiser struck and snapped a power pole. NC 98 was closed for hours.
After hurricane Fran roared through Durham in Sept. 96 the car a man and his daughter were riding in was swept off the road and they had to climb onto the roof. After being stranded for almost an hour the Durham Fire Dept. swift water rescue team saved them both.
