Subject: PTA advocating for School Board candidates?
 
        It is illegal and inappropriate for PTA's to use their membership  
lists or influence to support individual candidates. They could and  
probably will loose their non-profit satis if they do it. It is  
totally appropriate and legal to actively support issues that will  
directly benefit local schools and education. The LTT would certainly  
improve education in the county by building schools. The children of  
Chatham would benefit directly from the libraries, public health  
facilities, and other basic infrastructural necessities this county is  
lacking. Thank you Heather for keeping this topic on the forefront. By  
not passing the LTT, Chatham continues to shoot it's self in the head!

Subject: Coalition Egomania
 
 
So, let's go backwards, Sally and Jeffery.  You two run against Cross and Barnes, split the vote and in walks the
good old boy (gal) candidate that they've dusted off for this election.
 
Brilliant!
 
If the concern was truly about the county and not about your own coalition agenda, you would work with what we have.
(Even when what we have isn't perfect or your puppet)
 
To think that founders of the Coalition are elect-able candidates is pure folly.
 
This was just what was predicted. The Coalition gets such a big head that it eats itself.
 
Good luck, but all the luck in the world won't put these two in office in Chatham County.

Subject: THANK YOU MY FRIENDS!
 
Giving away clothing at Beggars and Choosers has never been so much
fun! Actually I am down with the worst flu I've ever had and was so
worried about my free night. But my family took over and my loyal
customers came and my husband said it was a good time had by all! We
have something very special in Chatham Co. and I'm proud to be a part
of it. What I give away is nothing in comparison to the joy i receive
.. Thanks to all of you that came last night, sorry I wasn't able to
join you but my family and friends said the party went on without me!

Hi all,
Can anyone recommend a local summer horseback riding camp? In particular, a 
weekly day camp that has a program for young (6 years old) beginners.
Thanks,
Janis Warren

Subject: PTA advocating for School Board candidates?
 
I am a parent of a Perry Harrison student.
 
Last year I received e-mails form the PHS PTA advocating for the LTT. After
contacting the State PTA and Chatham County Schools, I received an apology
and I felt that the volunteers who run the PTA e-mail list at PHS understood
that there had a been a line crossed.
 
But over the last 7 days, I have received three e-mails referencing Flint
O'Brien and Pete Rubinas,school board candidates. Do you feel that this is
an appropriate use of PTA e-mail lists? Do you feel that this is advocating
for a certain candidate on behalf of the PTA?
 
I think that PTA e-mail lists can be very useful. But if their intent during
political times is pass on political messages, I want to hear from ALL
candidates. Otherwise I feel that the PHS PTA is advocating for certain
candidates and that is an inappropriate use of the e-mail lists.

As the list serve moderator for the PHS PTSA, it is my task to keep parents
and staff at the school informed about all issues affecting the education of
our students at PHS.  To receive emails from our PTSA is voluntary, parents
need to sign up to receive them and can unsubscribe at any time.  The
information provided by Flint O'Brien and Pete Rubinas was relevant to the
PHS community and was forwarded for that reason.  If other candidates would
like to be introduced through our list serve, we will provide that service
as well. In fact, information from Gene Galin, a PHS parent and candidate
for School Board, has also been distributed to our list serve. Our PTSA
plans to host a "meet the candiates" forum this spring and we look forward
to having open discussion with all candidates.  The PTSA does not openly
support any candidate although its members as individuals may choose to do
so.  Sending out emails introducing candidates or providing information
about BOE meetings is not an endorsement of anyone by the PTSA.  It is
simply for informational purposes only. All relevant info that concerns the
education of our students will continue to be forwarded. 
 
As far as the information sent out about the LTT last year, Dr. Ann Hart,
Superintendent of Chatham County Schools at that time, asked all PTA
Presidents to forward out this information to inform families about the tax
and that the money would be used for school construction.  The PTA was
acting on this direction.

Just wanted to let everyone know that I was able to submit a post to the PHS PTSA email list.
 
Here's a snippet of what I sent over to Karen -

Karen -
 
I am so very happy to see you open up the Perry Harrison School PTSA email list 
to all Board of Education candidates. It is good to have another communications 
venue to reach out to parents. Thanks so much for all you do at PHS.
 
For those Perry Harrison parents who missed the BOE meeting the following are 
some links to video clips of the meeting so you can see and hear some of what 
went on -

Subject: Accidents 15-501 & Mann's Chapel
 
 
Sounds like I may be in the minority on this one, but I don't think there is a problem with the lights at all. I travel through this intersection twice a day. The problem is with people running 55 to 65 MPH through this 45 MPH zone and trying to cut the lights too close. If the proper speed limit was observed and enforced AND the lights were adhered to, the problem would correct itself. One thing I would change is make ALL directions NO RIGHT ON RED, reason being the angle that 15-501 intersects at. If it were straight instead of in a sweeping curve everyone could see better. Retiming the lights in my opinion would make no difference.

After reading the post by Jeff Starkweather about he and Sally Kost, I feel
they are over-qualified to run for a little job like county commissioner.

Subject: Intersection at Cole Park
 
My children go to school at Woods Charter and it is a common site to see accidents at the Cole Park Plaza intersection. I have seen posts suggesting the stoplight's timer might be off but another contributing factor may simply be the lack of those little white lines that guide drivers as they are turning...

Subject: A Fine Film On Farming Today
 
Every once in awhile, somebody gets it exactly right. "The Girl From Paris", a film by Christian Carion, rings of authenticity. This award winning film is not what a person would expect in regards to accurate small livestock farming information. The DVD can be found at PBO Library. Two thumbs up.
   
  According to the "State Of The County Address", Chatham County is the ONLY COUNTY in the state that has not had a decline in the number of farms in recent years. 
   
  Who puts out the "State Of The County Address" ? Well, the Chatham County Board of Commissioners, that's who. If I heard it right at the Citizens College, this is the first one published, ever. Support those who support you...R

Subject: Re: Affordable websites
 
Just some comments...sites will automatically get searched by engines. For
google, google sitemaps is important. Also, there are many more detailed
issues for SEO (search engine optimization) - for instance, a business like
this should highlight the area in text/description/title. Many links, such
as to AOL, leave the web site (not good!). Finally, site does not work right
in Mozilla Firefox - minimal support should be IE 6+ and Firefox.
 
Subject: Affordable websites
 
Affordable web-sites designed, built and maintained. Prices include
submission to major search engines like Google.com  / Yahoo.com  / Altavista
and
alltheweb.com. See example - my latest  site - _www.jordanlaketaxidermy.net_
