Subject: Barbie Birthday cake

In answer to Lesley Matthews question about the Barbie Birthday cake:

Yes, the cakes are pretty easy to make, but you need either a Barbie
Pan, which is made by Wilton, or a Pampered Chef large glass measuring
cup - I think it holds 4 quarts.  Also, you'll need decorating tips and
bags.  The Barbie pan, tips, and bags can all be purchased at either
Michaels or AC Moore.

Carol -
Go see Jason Jeremiah over at Country Farm and Home Supply on Small St. in  
Pittsboro.  Jason runs the lawn mower and ATV sales and service, and does  
service and maintenance on  commercial and residential equipment. Courteous  and
honest... a good guy to know if you have equipment to keep up.

Subject: jailbreak

I can not believe how people attack the very people who protect them over a mistake.  Yes, a mistake.  Please tell me that you do not make mistakes at your job.  Police officers, deputies, highway patrolmen, jail keepers, judges, lawyers, doctors, waitresses, sales people, secretaries, or any other professional or non professional are human first.  NO human is perfect.  We all make mistakes.  Maybe you don't honor your community by risking your life every day that you put on a uniform and go to work.  Maybe that is why the many mistakes you make at work do not put other's at risk, but you still make mistakes.
  These men and women put their lives on the line every single time they go to work.  They are up against dangerous people every single day.  If you think you can do better, put on a uniform and try.  If not, quit your complaining and try to perfect yourself, then worry about others.

Subject: NE want to "buy" a BOE candidate

Hi folks-

Need to read this blog if you have any interest in Chatham Co. schools and upcoming elections.

We want YOU to run for BOE District 2 (Perry Harrison)

Note the attack on current board members.  The fact that they are advertising for a candidate and offering
"all the recources" (translation MONEY) to get them elected.

They want CONTROL of decisions.

Those old NE folks again.  Obrian has McManus support in the west and Coaltion he's a shoe in.

District 2 is up for grabs.  The Where's MY School folks (original name of their blog) want Flint in #1 and their bought
candidate in #2.  Looks to be an interesting race.
But what's really going on here?

More on that later.....

Subject: To Phyllis, Re: Pet Adoption

Hi Phyllis:

You have acquired your dogs the same way many of us do.  Often times we get
so many that find their way to us, we do not have to go looking!
I work for a local vet, and can tell you that, although most of the
rescues/shelters DO check references, and want a safe home for the adoptee,
they are not as strict or as scary as some may think.  The shelter is an
EXCELLENT place to find a new pet, as well as CARE.  Petsaver-NC is also
right here in Chatham.
As soon as I can convince my husband, I will be taking a trip to the shelter
for a kitty.  We do some spays and neuters for them, and the cats that come
through my office on a weekly basis are some pretty cool cats!  The dogs
that get adopted and come to us to be neutered or spayed (which is IN the
contract for most animals adopted from the rescues as well as the shelter)
are some of the nicest sweetest animals I have met.  Don't get me wrong, I
generally love 'em all, but the shelter dogs tend to be really awesome
They just want to make sure that when the animal leaves their care, they
will not be back.
So if anyone is hunting up a pet, I strongly recommend the resources in
Chatham.  They are healthy and pretty inexpensive.  Certainly worth a look!

From: "Brenda Denzler"
Subject: Pet overpopulation

I would like to remind Chatham County residents that you can make
significant donations to animal charities like CARE, POP and others in
small, relatively painless chunks through payroll deduction programs.  Check
with your employer to see if they offer one.  (Some employers also offer
matching gifts programs, which is even better!)  
Those who are employed by the State of North Carolina can take advantage of
the State Employees' Combined Campaign to make smaller (or larger!) regular
contributions to their favorite charities -- including a number of local
animal welfare charities.  The time for signing up to contribute via the
SECC in the next year comes around every October.  We just finished the
enrollment period for 2008, but October will be here again before we know
Many of us won't miss just $5 or $10 or $20 out of our paychecks every time.
We learn to manage our lives without it.  Yet that money is sent directly to
the charity of our choice, where it does a lot of good.  
Helping groups who want to do their part to control pet overpopulation is a
worthy cause.  I hope Chatham residents will rise to the challenge of
educating citizens about the options that are available to them for their
pets and making those options more readily available to all citizens by
giving their financial support to the groups who have made this their reason
for being.

Subject: Valentine Week Volunteer Submission from Second Bloom Thrift Shop

Second Bloom Thrift Shop, located at 68 Hillsboro Street in Pittsboro, is operated by the Family Violence and Rape Crisis Services of Chatham County.  Proceeds from the store operate the women and children's shelter in town.  Due to the fact that both the manager and assistant manager are part-time employees, we heavily depend on volunteer help in the store. Duties for volunteers include greeting donors and giving them tax donation slips, sorting items and cash register operation.  This is a physical job, so you must be able to lift at least 20 pounds.  Saturday is our busiest day and needs the most attention.  You can either volunteer for an entire day or for shifts of 3 hours or more.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, otherwise you can pick up a volunteer application at the store.  Thank you!

Subject: County Supplied Water and Why Everyone Pays?

Title states it all!!!

I would real like to know and correct me if I’m wrong, why OUR Tax Dollars have to pay for water distribution in other parts of this county???? The outcome is, we get nothing, and they get it all!!!!

After driving along the roads of our beautiful county, I happen to notice land for sale signs right along side newly installed fire hydrants with plastic still covering them!!!!

I think it about time we as tax payers, stopped this having their cake and eating too, here in this county. Our Tax dollars paying to drive the value of their property up and they profit.

If there are problems is areas with water quality, quantity or just plain old they need the Cary type amenities, let them pay.

In most parts of this country, when municipal provided services are needed or required, the land owner pays, which ultimately increases the value of THEIR property. If they can not pay up front, most provide a manageable payment plan of 10-15 years.

Subject: A voice of Wisdom

 *   Thank You, Thank You, Karen Croswell for Your voice of wisdom
around some of this communities response to the Jail Break. I say that
is a framable piece of prose. I agree that the view from the sidelines
is different from the view in the **middle** of the fray. Aspects that
are impossible to see from the center of the action can be available to
those attending from the outside.
    Like Karen suggests, tearing people down for their performance is
generally not a way to inspire responsible behavior from the people who
are being torn asunder . Loving constructive feedback really helps to
create relationships where people feel respected. That is essential for
government or any organization to excel in their respective missions.
Bad guys/good guys....... I don't see that, I see _all_ people doing our
best to create  community that feels safe and nurturing. It ain't easy.
I like the constructive feedback approach....... thank You Karen for
your voice.

Subject: Why volunteer

Having volunteered with a variety of organizations and causes for the past 2 years, helping others usually is the theme during the year-end holiday season. What about the remaining year, though? There are ample opportunities to volunteer that help a multitude of others.
   For me it’s about meeting new people and feel compassionate that I am able to touch there life in some way.  

People volunteer simply because they are compassionate and put themselves into “other's shoes”. This is the makings of a true volunteer. Compassion of helping and caring for others.
  I volunteered last year for Council on Aging Spa Day, it was awesome meeting different ones and seeing the smiles from those gorgeously painted manicures.
  The feeling I got from just a little bit of my time is indescribable.
   Mona Hanner , Lindsay Straughn from the Council on Aging is two great ladies from COA that I have had the pleasure of working with.
   I thank them for there  help in putting together the Spa day last year and the Christmas Parade.  Great minds put together does wonders plus, its fun to have different ideas and talent. For God gave each of us a special talent.
  I have also  given gift certificates to many non profits to raffle off.  To help there organizational needs.  Animal Shelters, Rape Crisis, Boy Scouts, Churches, Chatham Academy School, plus many more.
  So volunteer today bring a smile to someone else.

Subject: Valentines Volunteer Veek

A Mural project for downtown Pittsboro is being designed by Stacye Leanza, famous Mural Artist, with ideas and input from middle school aged students.
Horton Middle School, North Chatham, Perry Harrison, and Moncure schools are being asked to participate in the designing, which began January 30th.  

Once the design is finished, the Mural will be drawn on a wall in downtown Pittsboro.

Then we will begin the painting.

Painting for the school children involved will be on Thursday afternoons.

Third Saturday’s, 10 AM- 2PM, for community involvement.

First Sunday’s, 1 PM-4 PM, for Families and Friends of the children.  We hope to have Juan Di Giulio, art instructor at the ARTS Center in Carrboro, (presently with a one man show there), to help interpret for Hispanic families.


A number of local artists and painters are donating their time to make this project happen including muralists Travis Cohn and Eric Davis.

If you would like to volunteer to be a part of this wonderful event, or to help donate materials, please contact Suzanne Robinson, Program Specialist, Unlimited Success, 919-824-0181,


On First Sunday, June 1st, there will be a dedication ceremony, as part of Pittsboro Merchants First Sunday.
