Subject: York Heat Pump Service Referral

I am trying to find a reputable company in the area to service our York
Central Heat Pump.  Does anyone have any recommendations?  My
brother-in-law is in the business but he lives in VA and said we need to
get on a service plan.  The only company that I was referred to told me
they don't service York.

Thank you.

      As Chatham Habitat for Humanity grows, we have a constant need for
improved volunteer coordination. We are looking for that special volunteer
with a combination of people skills and technological savvy (data management
experience a must!) to take our volunteer recruitment, organization and
follow up to the next level. A commitment of one day per week, flexible
hours, and the opportunity to interact with dedicated volunteers from
Chatham County and beyond make this the perfect volunteer opportunity. If
this opportunity sounds like it might be a good fit, please call Executive

Subject: Pittsboro Animal Hospital

I cannot let Elliott Cramer's post go without comment.  Although I do
not know what the policy is at Pittsboro Animal Hospital is as far as
rabies vaccinations go I do know about the kind of care they provide.  
Dr. Weiser and her terrific staff have been caring for my four legged
crew since she opened up.  They have unfailingly provided excellent care
of my pets (both dogs and cats) even though they appear to be conspiring
to come up with some of the world's most complicated problems
imaginable.  I have complete trust in their approach to care but have
always been comfortable with the approaches we've used.  Dr. Weiser has
also, several times, gone above and beyond the call of duty when
problems have come up at night or over the weekend including a
ridiculous number of calls fro me over the Easter weekend as she treated
a cascading collection of problems from one of my cats (who is now doing
great).  I highly recommend them.

Subject: Chatlist is a great resource

Recently we moved to a house built in 1980, and discovered there were all kinds of problems screaming for attention. I chose to use the chatlist as my resource for finding help, and couldn't be happier! Danny Grasty, whose wife Teresa needs the storm door fixed, and his crew, worked here for 2 1/2 weeks (369-4737). They built a fence, did plumbing, worked on the deck, and built beautiful bookshelves along one wall of the study. I enjoyed their company, and hated to see them leave!

Yesterday I had my gutters cleaned by another chatlist find, Brett from BBH Grasscutting (444-1801). He removed years of debris, and installed gutter guards. Another very satisfying encounter. And if anybody out there needs a plumber, call Donald Nemmons (636-2681).

Our main sewer line was blocked with years of gunk, soap, and other sediments. He went above and beyond, and in just an hour had everything flowing. All of these workers did quality work, cleaned up, and were reasonable with their fees.

Thanks, Gene, for providing chatlisters with this service.

Subject: Veterinary Rabies Scam?

In response to Mr. Cramer.  When you enter a Veterinary Clinic you become a
patient. Your pet now falls under the care of the doctor who sees and treats
it. It is required by law all Veterinarians keep medical records and it is
deemed unethical to perform any treatment/vaccine without first obtaining a
basic general health exam (with penalty of losing a license). (You can read
the practice act offered online by the Veterinary Medical Board) It’s always
good to have a base line in case your pet develops new symptoms after
receiving treatment/vaccines. Any human doctor would not vaccinate a John
Doe off the street without first giving him a basic exam. It’s poor
ownership to deny your pet a basic exam. However, if all you had the money
for was the advertised $17 rabies vaccine, the Veterinary clinic should have
asked you to sign an exam waiver form.  The clinic is trying to cover all
its bases in case something went awry (your dog died) and you decided to
sue. You should look at things from a medical standpoint not ‘they were
trying to rip you off’.

Subject: YMCA pool

A pool in Pittsboro would be cool!

Pun intended. I tried to go to hot topics and saw there was a poll but didn't know how to vote, or if I could vote, or where to vote on line, so to relieve my frazzled brain, I'd love to jump in a pool nearby and wish there were one in town. In Sanford, Nautilus lets people over 60 join for $25 a month. If the Y would let Chatham senior residents join at a reasonable rate, it would save carbon foot print going to Duke's wellness center at Faerrington or Galloway ridge, and it would save local dollars for those on budgets when they retire.  A pool could serve as a place for kids to learn to swim, others to get exercise, and swim teams to practice. It would be a great asset to the community. Indoor outdoor would provide recreation, too, and another place to meet and greet our wonderful Chathamites.

Subject: Glittering Hummingbird in my  hand / MY MARVEL

Got a new skylight ..came back home from work at night and a little glittering green hummer was trying to get out by bumping and humming all around it ... frantically hummed every where around the house then back to the sky light.  Turned off the inside lights and the lit the outside ones.  Humming stopped and I thought he's made it out.  Next morning; the little green jewel was humming and bouncing at the skylight again.  Got a ladder and caught him easily and gently.  Held a miracle in my hand.  Up close live, his green was bluer and his red spot so small...They seemed bigger when not in my hand...His tiny, long fragile brown pointy beak and iridescence was spellbinding... I wanted to touch it but was so scared I'd hurt him.  He was lighter than a tiny little feather......than a puff... Let him fly in the sky again...hummed off north without looking back.   I think he returned to the feeder next day.  No physical harm but must
 have been terrifying ... amazing; he never struggled in my hand..  Wonderful experience for me though. I'm hoping for a she for him.

Subject: dying dianthus

1.  Can anyone tell me why my newly planted dianthus are turning yellow and apparently dying?  Just planted twenty of them to line my path.  Don't' understand why.  All the rest of my perennials are thriving. 

2.  Also, have cleared two acres from hardwood forest which was boggy for years but not anymore.  However, I have lots of clay and I am in a valley and have a deep creek surrounded with high hills and so it stays moist NOW...this summer it will be hard packed clay again like everyone else.  I do have extremely heavy dews, also.  I am raising and breeding mini horses and wanted to plant Bermuda in the new pastures,which was recommended by Sam Groce  Then I read about Bahia, Tifton 9.  This was recommended by a friend in Hillsborough with cattle and horses and clay.  Now I have researched and read the Bermuda/Bahia needs sandy soil.  Want to know - does anyone have any experience with Bahia around Chatham's clay soil.  Hate to wast money experimenting.  Other option is tried and true tall fescue and I do have the room to put pregnant mares up in a large paddock for their three months confinement but the Bahia or Bermuda pasture would be
 so much better for them.  I already have one fescue pasture. My pH and all will be amended to suit any grass before I plant.  Have had it tested and am ready to go whenever it stops raining and I can have it graded and raked.  All advice will be considered.  Thanks.
