Subject: Help Stop the Bullying! Send an email of support.

On Tuesday night there will be a public hearing about the proposed Chatham Park Development.

The Pittsboro Planning Board voted in favor of Chatham Park 4-1.

The Pittsboro Town Board has been bullied and harrassed by a small group of about 100 people (many of whom don't live in Pittsboro) that calls themselves "Pittsboro Matters"

Let's show the town board members some love and send them an email of support.

A simple "Let's proceed with Chatham Park" or "Let's do it. Approve Chatham Park" or if you'd like just "Get Her Done!"

It really won't take much to stop the bullying by Pittsboro Matters. They represent 0.156% of Chatham County that is trying to put up a "Get Off My Lawn" sign on future development.

It's time to stop the bullying! Won't you take a minute and just drop a quick email? Do it for the future of of our children and STOP the BULLYING!

Subject: Shout out to "Performance Auto & Tire"

I have to say I love these guys! We have brought all our vehicles here and we have received nothing but outstanding service! Just on Friday, I was at the post office and noticed smoke coming from under my car, got out to find oil pouring out, I didn't even go in the post office but drove right over to Performance, I was in waiting for the gentlemen to get off the phone when I noticed 2 guys seeing the mess my car left, they went over to check it out, they immediately pulled it into a bay and quickly figured out that it was only a oil sensor switch that had blown, they had the part there in not time and they got me back out the door very quick! I was thankful it wasn't something more major and that I could of had a ruined engine very quickly.

Don't hesitate to bring your car here for service! They will take GREAT care of you!

A very Happy Customer,

Michelle

Subject: Range 2A outdoor gun range outside of Pittsboro. Open House: May 24

Discussion about this outdoor gun range come up a few weeks ago on the Chatham Chatlist.

Open House is scheduled for May 24 from 9 am to 4 pm.
Facebook Page<https://www.facebook.com/pages/Range-2A/656238414443645?ref=br_tf>has 110 likes as of today.

From their web site <http://www.range2a.com/>

Address: 1152 Silk Hope Gum Springs Rd, Pittsboro, NC 27312
Web: www.Range2A.com
Email: This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

Range 2A is a private, members only outdoor range located just outside of Pittsboro, NC.  It was designed and built to fill the need for safe, responsible, law abiding firearm owners to have an enjoyable place to practice. We are accommodating to all shooting skill levels, from beginner to expert.  Each of our 8 bays (Phase 1 of development) are comprised of berms on three sides, cut into a hill and surrounded by trees and brush for optimum lead containment, sound abatement, and safety. 

Range 2A was developed as a facility where responsible, safe, legal firearm owners can come to practice.  Most ranges set strict guidelines on range rules which can limit a persons ability to advance their skill and comfort level.  A few examples of these restrictions are rapid fire (or shooting more than 1 round per second), magazine changes, or drawing from your holster.  Since our members are grown adults who the State of North Carolina even agrees are responsible enough to own a firearm, we don’t feel it’s our place to tell you what your shooting skill level is.

*Is the range finished?*

Absolutely not! What you see here is Phase I of a three Phase project. We have a total of 71 acres to utilize for the facility and have used approximately 15. Our total build-out plans include 20 separate bays ranging from 50×100 to 100×200 in size, two shotgun skeet stations, two archery stations with elevated platforms for real-life practice, two long ranges (300 yards and a military/LE 700 M range) as well as a 360 range for LE and military training only.  Eventually we desire to have a building with a common area and bunkrooms. We also have plans for a gun cleaning station where members and guests can clean their firearms here at the facility rather than take it home and do it in the kitchen where there is a slight chance for complaining about the smell.

Subject: Thank you/Concrete Recommendations

I wanted to first say thank you to everyone who sent the information on tile people in the area!  I really appreciated all the responses:)

I now would like to get some quotes on pouring a large concrete slab for a basketball/fun area for our children.  If you know of anyone in the area that does this kind of work I would really appreciate the information.

I'm also in search of a corkscrew slide for a project we are doing for our kids.  If you no longer are using yours and would like to sell please send me an email with price, condition, and possible picture.  Thanks in advance!

Subject: Sorry I did not include Mrs. Hales apology in my OP...

Mr./Ms A. is correct.  

I did not include Diana Hales' apology in my original post on May 8th.   I want to apologize to Mrs. Hales and all of the Hales supporters, in front of all 5000+ chatlist subscribers for leaving that out.   See, I wasn't one of the half dozen or so people at the Board of commission work session on July 15th, 2013 where Mrs Hales made her apology.  If I made my apology in an ATM vestibule could I still say I apologized?  Diana "the Faux Quoter" Hales attributes something revolting to Brian Bock, sends it out to the chatlist which has more than 5000+ subscribers, then apologizes in front of maybe a dozen people at a July BOC Work session?   Look at how hard the Faux Quoter tried get this lie printed in the Chatham County Line:

"I heard him make that statement to Commissioner Kost (he sits next to her) and the resulting vote to defeat HIS OWN MOTION is PROOF. I would be interested in viewing this video as well, or the audio record of the meeting since it should have been captured."---Diane Hales*

http://chathamcountyline.org/shtmls/hesaidshesaid.shtml

Did she work this hard to get her apology in the Chatham County Line?

One of the planks of the Hales campaign is transparency. This is interesting because it is the GOP led board that instituted video recording all of the BOC meetings. I bet she wishes they were a little less transparent now because without that video the Faux Quoter’s lie would now be fact.

Chatham Democrats chose the wrong candidate in the primary.

Subject: Muddylaces' Chatlist post

Muddylaces neglected to include in his/her May 8 Chatlist post titled
Chatham Strong is icky, in which he/she asserted that Diana Hales lied,
that at the following BOC meeting on 7/15/13, during public input Diana
said, "I want to publicly apologize toComissionerBrian Bock "for falsely
attributing a statement to him . . " Diana went on to explain that during
the June meeting Brian Bock had nominated a candidate for appointment to
the EDCBoard of Directors, followed by Sally Kost'sgiving a brief review of
the nominee's resume including her being a Siler City business owner, an
artist and affiliated with the Arts Incubator. Bock then voted with Petty
and Stewart against his own motion, which Diana stated "led to my
conclusion, but it was not factual. For my error, I do sincerely apologize."
Diana's statement can be found in the minutes for that meeting, under
Public Input."

Subject: Apology to Chatham listers

Hi All

It was pointed out by a veterinarian hospital that they did not listen to people who shouted.......This was concerning a post I had make about coal ash ponds in Chatham.

I emailed a friend and asked, "Did I shout?".   They replied that if I used caps that indeed I shouted.   I was mortified!  Had no idea that I shouted via my post.

With that I apologize to my fellow Chatham listers.    I knew not what I did as I thought caps where to emphasize not shout.  Still I was wrong and so an apology is needed.

Back to the coal ash ponds.......There will be a program on titled Americans Dirty Secret-Coal Ash.

It can be seen nationally and premieres on LinkTV, via DISH (channel 9410) and DirecTV (channel 375) at 9pm on Thursday, May 22.

This tells about the impact of coal ash toxic impact on American families.  With five coal ash ponds  in Chatham County.  Chatham Country residents should be aware of the rest of the story concerning coal ash ponds.

Again apology for shouting.

Subject: Free Film Screening; Bringing It Home

*FREE* FILM Screening Wed MAY 21-7:00 pm BRINGING IT HOME: 52 minute film and post-screening discussion with filmmaker Linda Booker. Chatham Community Library, Hwy 87 N. Pittsboro NC trailer/more info: www.bringingithomemovie..com

The award-winning documentary film "Bringing It Home" explores the question of why a crop with so many widespread benefits is currently illegal for almost all U.S. farmers to grow. The film uncovers the history of hemp, its myriad industrial applications and legalization efforts. The film was inspired by home designer Anthony Brenner’s story to find the healthiest materials available to build a safe indoor environment for his daughter who has a sensitivity to synthetic chemicals. Brenner received national media attention when he and Hemp Technologies completed “America’s First Hemp House†for the former mayor of Asheville, North Carolina. Booker and Johnson tell the story of hemp through animation, archival images and footage of hemp business leaders and entrepreneurs, like Brenner and others, from England, Spain, Washington, D.C., CA and NC.

Bringing It Home received this year’s Jury Award at the 2014 Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival and Best Environmental Film from the Sedona International Film Festival. Through a grassroots audience engagement screening tour, the documentary aims to magnify dialogue about hemp in order to facilitate America’s transition to a more informed, sustainable and healthy future. The film is being screened in conjunction with Hemp History Week 2014, with screenings in major cities across the country.

Subject: Dental Day Event to take Place May 22 in Pittsboro

Pittsboro, NC: Dental Day will be held on Thursday, May 22, 2014 from 10:00am to noon. This will be a special day in the park for the infants, toddlers and preschoolers of Chatham County. As you know, it is very vital for young children to learn about dental care and oral hygiene. Child care providers from family child care homes and small child care centers are encouraged to bring their children to this important event. Parents are also welcomed..

Children will have the opportunity to participate in story time, singing, games and other fun activities that will promote good oral hygiene. The Colgate Dental Van will join the festivities with a dentist on board to provide an oral screening of children in the dentist chair. Each child will receive a child size string backpack and a dental tooth kit which includes tooth saver (to keep safe for the Tooth Fairy), tooth brush, brushing timer, tooth paste and educational materials to take home and continue their good brushing techniques.  We will have a dental hygienist on hand to teach everyone how to properly brush teeth. Oral screening and referrals will occur for all children with a signed parental permission slip.

The event will be held at Town Lake Park, 529 N Carolina 902, Pittsboro.

The first 10 child care providers that call and register will receive a Kaplan(tm) Soft Dentist Kit and special books about dental care for their child care library.

Bring children's lunch and make it a morning picnic before naptime. There will be water available to drink.

For more information on Dental Day, sponsored by Chatham County Partnership for Children and the Chatham County Public Health Department, please contact Sharon Ware, RN at (919) 545-8220 or This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it <mailto: This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it >.

Here's what's on the agenda:

   - Solar Basics (and we'll hook up some demo panels so you can see the    sun in action!)
   - Financial Incentives to install solar in the next 6 months
   - Financing Solar - what makes sense?

Subject: Chatham Park: time to tell the town it is "ok" to move forward

It is time to move forward with a positive vote on rezoning the land owned by Chatham Park. I have lived in North Chatham for a long time and I have been a witness to a lot of change. My husband died here. We raised our daughter in Chatham County and I intend to die here (but not soon).  I love the people of Chatham County and the community we have built here.

I have also supported smart, balanced growth, which is comprised  of a lot  of factors including economic development and what I believe Chatham Park ultimately represents.

Naturally, the community will need to continuously monitor  the  protection of the Haw River, the pacing and type of economic and residential growth as well as giving a strong voice to Pittsboro’s ideas and spirit in order for the project to reflect the town and its character.

From my perspective, the potential growth from Chatham Park will benefit the people of Pittsboro and the region. And it is my understanding that Chatham Park has committed its resources to making downtown Pittsboro a better place to live, visit and do business. It appears that they are making substantive and reasonable attempts to work with the community at-large and enhance our downtown.

I also believe the President of the Chatham Country EDC, Dianne Reid, provided a nice summary of the economic advantages of the project in her February 2014 Chatham County Line article, http://chathamcountyline.org/pdfs/CCL.feb14.web.pdf.  (In addition in the same issue a resolution of support appears from the Chatham County EDC as well as a letter of support from the Chamber of Commerce.)

Chatham Park has also agreed to help the Town government of Pittsboro develop infrastructure that will give all the people better water, schools, emergency protection and roads.

And Chatham Park will provide jobs and facilities here in Chatham County so young people will not have to go out of county to find them, a situation that is killing rural areas all over the US. Consequently, Chatham County will become the place people from all over the state will be coming to for opportunity.

At tonight’s special town board meeting which is a public hearing that will be held at the Historic Pittsboro Courthouse, the Pittsboro Town Board has the opportunity to move Pittsboro forward and take this opportunity to make it the best location to live, work and play of any town in North Carolina.  It is time to move forward.

Subject: Doing It at the Dixie Dew author Ruth Moose,  at Library this
 Thursday

Meet Ruth Moose as she reads and discusses her new novel Doing it at the Dixie Dew, winner of the Malice Domestic Mystery Novel contest, published by St. Martin's Press.

Beth McKenzie¹s wealthy first guest at her Bed and Breakfast, The Dixie Dew, arrives in a pricey sports car and leaves in a hearse. Beth has to find the real killer when the clueless two-man police force in her small Southern town name her prime suspect in the murder.

Moose reworked the novel she wrote 25 years ago when she began to meet with other mystery writers in the Chatham area a few years ago, submitted it to the contest, and won. In the "cozy" mystery genre an ordinary citizen investigates crimes, often with help and hindrance from friends and neighbors (and sometimes pet rabbits).

"As deliciously Southern as pecan pieŠ a dazzling and delightful debut mystery," writes best-selling mystery novelist Carolyn Hart. "I loved it! So much fun to read," says Lee Smith of Hillsborough, author of The Last Girls, a New York Times bestseller.

NC native Moose taught Creative Writing at UNC-Chapel Hill for 15 years, and prior to that she was a librarian at Pfeiffer College. She occasionally teaches classes and workshops at CCCC in the Creative Writing Program. She lives in Pittsboro. Books will be available for sale at the event.

Subject: Chatham PTA Thrift Shops

Just a reminder--when you are cleaning out this summer or after your yard sales--donate your gently used items to the PTA Thrift Shops located in Siler City, Pittsboro and Cole Park. The money raised from the PTA Thrift Shops stays here in Chatham County for our schools. With budget cuts hurting so many schools, this is a great way to help our teachers. Please donate to the PTA Thrift Shops and if you have a hour or two, stop by and offer to volunteer in one of the stores. Your time can be donated to any Chatham County School of your choice. Call the stores for details. Siler City 663-2395--Pittsboro 542-4070--Cole Park 919-969-9457
The PTA Thrift Shop also has a truck for picking up large or multiple items.

Hey ya'll - if you haven't had a chance to meet Mike, please go and meet him.  He is a great guy, very professional, and SO helpful.  Mike helped me with a very difficult job (and life) transition a few years ago, and helped me figure out what was important to me and how to most effectively get it.  If you are stuck, and need help pulling the answers out, go see Mike.

Storytelling for Grown-Ups at the General Store Café

Storytelling for Grown Ups will take place on Wednesday, June 22 from 7 pm to 9 pm at the General Store Café.  The night will feature a variety of storytelling styles and stories from some of the area¹s finest storytellers for only $5.00!

Event organizer, Garry Lipson is a retired high school construction teacher and cross country track coach.  His hilarious personal experience stories will have you on the edge of your seat.

Joining Lipson is Bob Langford who has been a longtime storytelling fixture in the Triangle first in print at the News & Observer, then on TV at WRAL, then for people who couldnŒt read or afford televisions, on WPTF radio.

Melissa Delbridge has won awards from the Southern Humanities Review, the Southern Women Writers Conference, and the Great Lakes Colleges Association for her nonfiction and fiction. In her essay collection, Family Bible (University of Iowa Press, 2008),  she explores themes of race, gender, and sexuality as they impacted her life growing up in the Deep South 1960s and 1970s.  The winner of the Monti's first Hippo Award for Comedy, she is a newcomer to Pittsboro and teaches creative writing at CCCC.

Rounding out the line-up is Claire Ramsey who discovered storytelling by drawing pictures when she was still too young to write.  Ramsey¹s storytelling upgraded from hobby to a business, Stories with Claire, after she took a university storytelling class.  The ³premier storyteller² of Wake Forest and the ex officio of the North Carolina Storytelling Guild, Ramsey believes storytelling helps people value education and learn from one another.

Although this program is not intended for small children, young people ages 10 and up will definitely enjoy this event.

Subject: for Sara Kane (and others) re: small font in GMail

All current web browsers have some sort of "zoom" feature. In some you can magnify just text or the whole window and there are add-ons available that let you permanently set larger or smaller sizes for individual web sites. The most generic answer is to use your browser's "Help" feature and search for "zoom." Zoom is most often found under the View menu of the browser, which will also show you the keyboard shortcut.

A temporary solution, if your mouse has a scroll wheel, is to hold down the control key while moving the wheel away from you. This will temporarily magnify everything on your monitor, not just the web page. A permanent solution is to change the monitor's resolution or use the tools some computer vendors provide for the visually impaired.

Google is your friend; try searching for "zoom web page" for your browser, e.g., "zoom web page firefox"

Subject: Chatlist member Al cooke mentioned in AP story about gardening

Chatham County's extension agent Al Cooke is mentioned in an AP article about gardening -

Lingering downturn helps keep gardening boom going

Read the entire story at http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5ghup08igi9zSihJ8_cwsXSLGOmsg?docId=c2f7e474fa924d538c3d388707427bba

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Many of the millions of people who turned to gardening to save money during the recession appear to be sticking with it during the recovery as food prices remain high and interest in safe, fresh and local food grows nationwide.

Forty-three million American households planned to grow at least some of their own food in 2009, a 19 percent increase from the estimated 36 million who did the year before, said the National Gardening Association, citing the most recent figures available. Spending on food gardening - including growing vegetables, fruit trees, berries and herbs - jumped 20 percent in one year to $3 billion in 2009 and stayed at that level last year, said Bruce Butterfield, research director for the nonprofit association.

With more novice gardeners nationwide, teachers report classes are filling up. Food gardening classes in Chatham County, N.C., for example, have doubled in size in the past five years.

"I've noticed just about any classes that I do that involve edible foods, the number has been up, to the point that I scheduled a specific class on just berries," said Al Cooke, an agricultural extension agent with the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Chatham County Center in Pittsboro, N.C.

No fear here of the blacksnakes, Salinda.  Just protecting what is mine to protect.  I don't kill the snakes, at least not the non-poisonous ones.  Having farm animals can require doing difficult things you'd rather not.  Try not to judge.
