Hey, Tim, what a great way for you to come in here all high on your high horse and gentrify Asheville. Give Lizzy Manheimer a litre of single malt for Xmas. Make sure and do that for good will, and for city officials to look the other way. Whew! $550/night. That’s a little steep for me. Would you take a cashier’s check on a Bahamian bank?
Heeeere’s Kathryn, the criminal, posing with her son: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/12685614?s=unk7pZTG
Kathryn lives in Black Mountain so she’s not really concerned about ruining a nice family neighborhood in N. Asheville. Kathryn, be prepared to receive shortly your notice of violation of the laws of Asheville, NC, for which you have little or no respect.
The city says it is proactively enforcing the laws against illegal motels in the city. Do you really believe that bullshit?
Here is Terri: https://www.airbnb.com/users/show/97256862
Terri is operating an illegal motel in the Murdock/Edwin Place vicinity. Terri, be looking for your notice of violation from the city. The city needs your $500 per day fine. After all the city will take a disabled person’s tax refund because she got parking tickets downtown when she was unable to find a disabled person’s parking place, typical of the avaricious assholes who run the city of Asheville: they look the other way on illicit motel violations and stick it to the poor. Are you hearing me, million-dollar-home mayoress and Gary “Fort Worth” Jackson?

Mad Martha says: “Requesting prayers as I go to court this morning with my psychopathic neighbor. Please pray that this four year nightmare will end for me. Can’t take much more…”
Elizabeth Heyward O’Reilly (who died in 2016 despite relying on hypnotherapy for a cure) says: “Sending you calming energy and prayers for successful resolution of the problem <3”
Dinah Estrada Townsend (an old hippie) says: “Prayers for your highest good”
Darlene Horn (another ancient hippie from out of the 60’s) says: “Prayers for the best outcome..”
Janet Marooney says: “Sending love for the highest good of all”
Brenda Levesque Semple (intuitive reader at Blissful Wellbeing, Ontario, Canada) says: “Asking Archangel Michael to protect you and help you cut the cords of negativity surrounding you. Namaste.”
Pat Ward (Reiki master) says: “Sending for your greatest good.”
Martha Grist says: “Thanks, it turned out well, at least for now… ”
Martha Grist says: ” It’s so wonder-full to have all of your support! <3″
Now just in case you don’t know, this was her last narcissistic heyday with me in court. She had me there under threat of arrest in her second charge of “cyberstalking.” And yes, the first charge was thrown out too. I could have been fined and thrown in jail if convicted.
The judge warned her not to ever perpetrate this foolishness again. Then he threw her out on her ass, and she and her ex-shackup — Greenwood, SC village idiot Dale Owen Shaffer — sulked crestfallen out of the courtroom.
But liar that she is, she tells all these “support” women she sucks on for their emotional support that “It turned out well.” (at least for now)
Here is the testimony of Mad Martha in the second cyberstalking case she initiated. It is rife with her perjury; and by the way, perjury is a felony and there is no statute of limitations on perjury in North Carolina:
Breaking the law is nothing new to amoral old thief, Mad Martha, but here is the latest:
The top right photo* is a view of her basement apartment she’s using as an illegal motel. New suckers just came in from Connecticut in a red Mazda with CHETC on the license tag, and of course there will be more comments and photos about this latest rash of dishonesty by the old beldam here at the blawg.
*Not any more. She’s had it moved as of today, 10/24. So go to the $67 (Kenilworth) on the map to the right and click on it and it will show you Mad Martha’s basement nest ad– 9 photos including stove, fridge, and toilet that’s always malfunctioning because it is 10′ below the level of the sewer line.
[Update: The ad is now removed as of 28 October 2016. I made hard copies of her pages before she took them down from AirBNB, in case they are needed as evidence in a lawsuit contemplated by several organizations and me. I want to thank Mayor Manheimer, City Manager Gary Jackson, and Jason Nortz, Development Services Director, for their punctual responses to my emails. On or about the 28th, Martha Grist received a notice of violation of city ordinances transmitted to her by Mr. Nortz.
She has 30 days to comply before subjecting herself to fines of $500 per day. Now I suspect what she will do is convert her flophouse into a homestay, which means she will be required to apply for a license, application fee of $208 and have her premises inspected by city officials. This means if she does go the homestay route that guests will live in her quarters, something she has grown to intensely dislike, since when she is off on one of her trips her guests have been known to bring in pals and do all their dirty laundry with her washer and dryer.]
Luckily for Mad Martha Grist a drought has occupied Asheville all summer and continues to prevail. Otherwise, some of her AirBNB customers would have been flooded. There was a flood back in the early summer and a wet mattress lay out in her yard for a week until she illegally dumped it onto the ground by the dumpsters at Star Lanes Bowling Center. You can see it below. This woman is endowed with the ethics of a cockroach.
Back in May, her particular swarm of scruffy, tattoo-covered millenials renting by the night were in and out and in and out and in and out in hoopties constantly with new faces and tattoos showing up every day, especially when Mad Martha was gone. When the cat’s away the mice play, and it looked as though as many as 8 of those mutts crashed there at all hours of the night…until she ran them off. And they just happened to be such poor drivers one of them backed into our mailbox and knocked it halfway over. We had to hire a man to dig it up and reset it so that it was plumb again.
Now go over to the map and click on the $67 figure (over “Kenilworth Rd.”) for a display of her violations, including 9 photos. Check out the photo of her jerry-built steep walkway between her messy place and the nice home of the Chalnicks just to the south of her. Somewhere along this steep unlit incline her former tenant, Kerry Evans, fell in the night and broke her arm a couple of years ago. But Kerry moved on to a habitable apartment. There is no love lost between Kerry Evans and Mad Martha. You can be sure that Kerry was stiffed for her medical bills.
Notice also that Martha Grist slickly evades using her last name since to call herself “Martha Grist” on her AirBNB advertisement would open her up to an internet search that would be quite revealing. Incriminating even. Perish the thought in her rotten little mind that she’d be exposed as an open and notorious perjurer and vexatious litigant in court filings and false testimony in courts of law.
[I’m going to publish here soon a funny series of FB posts in which Mad Martha whines like a sick mule to a number of new-age pals, begging them for prayers and support in her “dispute with my neighbor.” Typically cunning and deceitful, she fails to report to these sympathizers that SHE is the litigatrix in all these malicious civil and criminal matters she has fired up in our poor sullied courthouse, a place well-named as a whited sepulchre.]
And finally, several weeks ago I phoned Shannon Morgan in the city’s zoning department, who is charged with enforcing the zoning laws against the sleazy people who open motels in family residence neighborhoods. Fine is $500 per day. This is a piddling fine when you consider that AirBNB violations in New York City draw $7500 fines and will be enforced, while corrupt mopes in our city building look the other way.
Monday, 10 October 2016, Morgan called me to whine that he had searched and searched and could not find Martha Grist’s advertising. Then he said, “We can’t enforce against her unless we find her online ads.” He was trying to head me off. And I don’t believe a word he says. The city is infested with Scottie Shuford types. All that was necessary was to google “Asheville AirBNB” and then stick “Aurora Drive” into AirBNB’s search window. And VOILA! Do this for your street and see how many illegal motels pop up.
There are a few legal B&B’s and homestays. I saw an AirBNB homestay ad for Kenilworth where the homeowner courteously posted a copy of the homestay license for the premises.
Over ten years ago all I needed to do to prove a cathouse was rocking on Aurora Drive when skanky Scottie Shuford was still griming Asheville was to google “198 Aurora Drive, Asheville,” and it popped right up, fancy outdoor spa and all. That’s after sleazy liar Scottie Shuford swore to me over and over again that he and his staff had searched for the ad and could find none. That little sonofabitch threatened me with Asheville police. Before city council threw Shuford out of his office, they should have taken him down to Pack Square and administered a public flogging.
Here is a photo of the filthy mattress Mad Martha dumped on Star Lanes Bowling Center:
Marty Tackitt-Grist, also known as Martha Grist, has not worried one of her limited brain cells over the $500 per day fine for operating an illegal motel in violation of Asheville’s laws. “What the heck!” she figures. She’s been a common criminal for years and never been prosecuted yet — felony perjury, tax evasion, mail fraud, civil conspiracy, conspiracy to practice law without a license, larceny, illegal dumping, criminal violations of Asheville’s Building Code, numerous frivolous 911 call crimes, cruelty to animals, criminal assault, and now criminally operating an illegal motel in plain sight in a residential neighborhood zoned for families, not commercial use like motels.
So this is the weekend beginning Friday, October 7, 2016, and yesterday about 5 p. m., travelers drove in, got out of their car (a gray-haired man with a pony tail and a woman) and carried their “motel” luggage around the side of Mad Martha’s house and settled into her illicit basement “motel” unit. This morning I made photos of their car, a grey Kia, NC license tag no. AFK-1957 and a Chris Leith Kia ad on the tag cover and trunk lid. Chris Leith Kia is located in Raleigh, NC.
I noticed this past Monday, October 3, 2016, that someone with the city cruised by a couple of times after the report of last weekend’s motel guests. I can assure you that Shannon Morgan who is salaried for and paid by the taxpayers to investigate this crime and prosecute it has been provided with a full report about this and other illegal motels on Aurora Drive.
More to come, including photos of motel guests and a mattress that lay in Mad Martha’s yard for weeks until she illegally dumped it beside a dumpster at Star Lanes Bowling Center, a block down the street.

Here is a photo [better version coming soon] of the car which drove into her illegal ‘motel’ yesterday afternoon while Mad Martha was gone all night and did not return until this morning. Here also find a thumbnail report– with more photos to come — on the feverishly busy illegal motel of Mad Martha Grist, 200 Aurora Drive, Asheville, NC.
This weekend’s guests: two women from Virginia attending Asheville’s Gay Pride Weekend in a new white Volkswagen Passat, Virginia license tag no. VFN-2927…..
Photographed yesterday and today. More here. Two women motel customers arrived and unloaded when no one was at home at the Grist home. They went around the side of the ‘motel’ with their obvious temporary stay gear and entered from the rear, i. e., at Mad Martha’s illegal basement apartment which she built without a building permit, a crime btw, and for which she must have a “grant of immunity” from obeying the city ordinances, thanks to some of the numerous crooks in the city building, such as Gary “Fort Worth” Jackson, Cecil “drunk again” Bothwell, and Esther “smirking in muh million-dollar house at 169 Brookwood Rd. in tony North Asheville where illegal motels not allowed” Manheimer.
And no, these ‘motel’ customers are not friends of the proprietress spending a few nights for free (as Marty will surely try to squall, she being the prodigious serial liar and courtroom perjurer that she is). They are paying customers in a criminally illegal racket perpetrated by Mad Martha Grist in violation of settled law, maximum fine $500 per day. :
