Subject: Re: auto painting

I just dealt with a similar situation (daughter's car, front bumper cover)  
and was very pleased with Dan and Ken at "Auto Fashions & Together Customs,"  a
strangely named but well run operation off Mann's Chapel Road. Website here:  
_ (
I found them honest, fast, courteous, and affordable - not a bad  combination
of qualities for the auto business! I had them get and paint a new  bumper
cover, and install it and a headlight I had bought off eBay, and the  total
charge was about half the estimate of another local Pittsboro body  shop. And
,they arranged to pick up and drop off my daughter's car, and worked  around her
work and school schedule. What more could one ask for?

Subject: Chatham County Freecycle


You need to click on the link on that page that is for the Chatham County
Freecycle Yahoo Group.

This will take you to the Yahoo!Groups page.  You will need to have a
Yahoo! account if you dont already have one.

Anyway, if you click on that Yahoo! Group link above or on the page you
found, you will see, in the upper right hand corner, a button that says
Join this Group.

Click on that.  From there, you will be taken to the Yahoo Login, so you
can log in  using your yahoo account information, or if you don't have a
yahoo account, you can create one and then you should be able to join the
group and start receiving e-mails from the Chatham Freecycle.

If you need any help getting set up, let me know, I'd be more than happy
to help.  I can even come by your house and set it up for you if

I am on the Chatham, Orange and Durham freecycle groups and have used them
before to get some good stuff for use around the house, and also to get
rid of some stuff that I dont need, but could be used by someone else.

The General Meeting of the NHS Arts Education Foundation will be

We'd love to have a big crowd. You are encouraged to bring guests,

$1000 scholarship in each Arts Ed discipline at NHS—Choral Music,  
Dance, Drama, Instrumental Music, and Visual Arts.  This will take a  
group effort and we can't wait to get started.

We'll be happy to accept membership dues and/or scholarship donations  
between 7 and 7:15.
We'll also have copies of the Community Audit if you'd like a copy to  
complete. We can take any copies that have been completed to get to  
Lori who is going  to code the results for analysis. The audit is  
also available online in the Resource Section of the NHSAEF website.

Subject: RE: What is the Chatlist?

You're the historian, I'm the writer.  I see the essence of the Chatlist this way.  This wording may be too formal or lofty for your use, but perhaps you can glean an idea or two that will stimulate your thinking:

The Chatham Chatlist is a neighbor-to-neighbor community forum.  In many ways, the Chatlist represents a return to small-town rural America, hearkening to a time when your friends and neighbors were the primary sources of information about who needs help, who does good work, and what local news is worth broadcasting.  As was true of word of mouth in those days, the Chatlist is inclusive, and all communications within the bounds of good taste (and occasionally, some that may live perilously close to that border) are used without embellishment.  Entries are not edited for the finer points of grammar or syntax, and those very imperfections provide a flavor to the list that enables contributors to feel comfortable expressing themselves without the fear of undue scrutiny or the need to observe editorial protocols.

The venue is popular with readers and contributors across demographic and economic spectrums because it is genuine and devoid of pretense in the most transparent of ways.  It is, after all, the figurative back fence, across which you and your neighbor inquire, share, vent, and argue.

Subject: Thanks to Chatham County Sheriffs Dept.

I have had 4 encounters with Chatham County Sheriff Department deputies over the last few months and I must say I was VERY impressed. They made such a strong impression on me, I intended to submit a post some time ago. All of the officers were  professional, attentive, respectful, and physically fit. One was checking on our neighborhood in his off time after a heinous crime was committed to a local pet. I appreciate that he took the time to talk to us and even gave our dog treats. Others volunteered their time to fingerprint over a 100 kids and to present 3 library programs. (The children loved them!) I am grateful that deputies shut down a crack house down the road. I also appreciate that there were officers slowing traffic when there was ice on the Haw River Bridge. And most recently, I was impressed at how quickly they took action when the prisoners escaped, thinking first of our children. They clearly had a plan of action. I commend Sheriff Webster
 and the outstanding team he has put together.

Subject: Re:Jailbreak

Sorry, Sherri but I've gotta side with Cal on this one, despite the fact  
that your hubby was out re-apprehending bad guy all through the night. You  
mentioned working with the facts, so here they are as I know them:
    The jail was full, almost to capacity...  I  believe the N&O said 50 out
of 51 spots were taken.
    The prisoners that escaped did so by overpowering  the only two people on
    The two people on duty were a 50+ yr old man who  had a few months
"jailkeeper" experience and a 60+ yr old woman  who had about a year of Chatham
County jailkeeper expereince, but 15+ years  previous experience in SC
    The 5 prisoners that escaped could have released  the remaining 45
prisoners, but they didn't (imagine what THAT would have been  like!)
    The break came as a result of the jailkeepers NOT  following policy. They
were supposed to keep a locked door between them when  they went into the
cell block for lockdown, but didn't. This allowed BOTH of  them to be
    The breakout wasn't discovered for a couple of  hours, and then only
because another officer was delivering prisoner #51 to the  jail, making it a full
    The N&O reported that jail personnel had fallen  out of the habit of
following this particular policy, and had been doing this  wrong for months (that
may be more N&O opinion than fact, I grant you  that).
    While 4 of  the 5 were captured  pretty quickly, one is still on the
Given these FACTS, I agree with Cal. We should be incensed that the  
sheriff's office has allowed untrained and non-conforming (to policy) officers  to put
our entire community at risk. I think the Council should call for a  complete
review of the Sheriff's office, staff, policies, and procedures, and  ensure
that this will never happen again. As Cal said, this isn't Mayberry. Lets  
make sure we don't rely on a "Barney Fife" staff.  Not only do we  need to clean
up the training and ensure policies are followed, but better keep  some good
home security procedures in place as well. This is no longer a "leave  the keys
in the car and the doors unlocked" community. The faster we accept that  
fact, the sooner we will all be a bit safer.

Subject: Barbie birthday cake?

Does anyone know how to make a stand up doll cake?  Or do you know someone
that makes them and is not a grocery store?  I need one for at least 60
people so I am thinking I could just get a stand up doll cake and I would
make or get cupcakes to feed everyone.  Just wondering if anyone has made
one and it turned out well or if I should just buy one and if so from where?
Thanks so much in advance for all of the info!

Thanks again,

Lesley Matthews

Subject: list 2/08-08 always thanks for your service, the chatlist truly helps keep me  
informed of the local hub-bub. Great entertainment/great price. personally, I  
think you'd be a fine addition to our local school board. Literacy alone,  
qualifies your candidacy..with half the effort put into our schools that this  
(chatlist) takes, we, as taxpayers/parents/concerned citizens would be well  
rewarded for our support of you.  You got my vote and thanks    greg jones
