I had seen a couple of posts from young women seeking nanny positions this summer.  I am looking for a part-time nanny for my three children, ages 12, 9, and 3 for the summer, 3 days a week, definitely Fridays, and other 2 days negotiable.  I usually leave home for work around 8:30am and return by 5:30pm.  Our home is located just North of Siler City and I work in Siler, so I am only 15 minutes away.  We live on a large farm with pool and grandparents nearby.

Please email me directly if you are interested.

Subject: deer to blame??? I dont think so!

we are so quick to blame the deer, bobcats, and coyotes for the loss of our car, pets, veggies... when think about all they can blame us for.  We make them have to come into our back yards.  We make them have to cross the road for water.  We keep tearing up their land.  Where else are they going to go for food if we cut it all down? they have to go to our gardens.  Small pets... they dont see them as small pets.  they see them as prey.  why? because we build our homes in replace of where they live and hunt. It is NOT fair t o blame them! every year I hear that the deer are over populated.  How is that when we hunt them every year and I know several hunters that kill several deer a year.... young deer are killed, older deer, male and female deer are killed. Not to mention all the ones that get killed by cars.  and we blame the deer?  How do we actually know they are overpolulated or is it a guess by everyone.
 I know I know everyone has the right to their own opinion. I would like to be able to hear the deer, bobcat, and coyotes opinion.  LOL

thanks for listening to my thoughts and rambles.

Heather, if you read Jeff Lane's post carefully, you will see that he
does not suggest that controlling human population will control deer
population.  I'm quite certain that Nancy Pelosi has not suggested birth
control for the deer overpopulation problem in Chatham County, either.

Learn about the useful medicinal herb self-heal; take home plants and/or cuttings. Self-heal is a natural astringent, antiseptic, antiviral, and antibiotic. As a tea, it relieves colds, sore throats, allergies, with no dangerous side-effects. Can also be used on cuts, wounds, hemorrhoids, and herpes.
***Judy Hogan is a published poet and free-lance writer, who has taught creative writing workshops in the Triangle area since the 70s. She was the founding editor of Carolina Wren Press (1976-91), first president of the N.C. Writer’s Network (1984-87). She herself keeps an extensive journal, and 25 years of it are available and may be read in the Women’s Archive at Duke University’s Special Collections. She lives on a small farm in Moncure, where she writes and raises self-heal, as well as other herbs, chickens, fruit, and vegetables. She participates weekly in the Thursday Pittsboro Farmer’s Market at the Fairgrounds, 3:30-6:30 PM
The sale and silent auction of Nikolai Smirnov's paintings is almost upon us.  Please join the Kostroma Committee at  St. Philip's Episcopal Church in downtown Durham three weeks from today, Friday, May 15, 6-8 PM.   Nikolai came to the U.S. in a Durham-Kostroma Sister Cities exchange in 1998 and had a show in downtown Durham at Masterpiece Art Gallery.  He died in 2001, leaving a relatively young wife and three young sons.  The boys have continued with their education.  Now with the Kostroma Committee of Durham's help, we are, as part of the 20th anniversary celebration of the Durham-Kostroma Sister Cities relationship, holding this silent auction.
Nikolaiwas dedicated to preserving visually village life in Russia.  He also painted a few local North Carolina scenes, e.g., the beach near Wilmington and at Falls Lake.  I expect these paintings will be bargains.  They're wonderful to live with.  If you've ever been to my house, you've seen some of Nikolai's work.  Spread the word, if you know of folks who might be interested.  I can also email you some photos of them, if you're interested.
    Nikolai,with a chainsaw he bought from painting sales here, started a new home, and the boys continued working on it, but last year some vandals burned it to the ground.  Galina can use all the help she can get!  He was a good friend and a generous man.  His favorite poet was Esenin, and before he returned to Russia, he gave me a painting of Esenin, who was a poet of the villages and was killed in the 20s by the Soviet authorities.  Nikolai painted him against a blood red sky.  The full-sized portrait of Esenin was exhibited in Moscow's 850th anniversary celebration.

I hope to see you at the auction.  Spread the word!  Cheers, Judy Hogan

 Your remarks sound similar to Nancy Pelosi's (paraphrasing here) "using

 So thanks Jeff. Happy Mother's Day to you and yours.

You're welcome Heather.  Now please go back and re-read what I said,
think a little, and stop using the emotional argument, which as I
pointed out before, is weak.  We as humans ARE a bit overpopulated. We
are quickly outpacing food production, outpacing the amount of
available fresh water, and outpacing livable land.  Simple fact.

We as a species are NOT immune to the effects of overpopulation, just
as the Deer, and every other species is not immune.

And Yes, I did call my mother to wish her a Happy Mother's Day.

Subject: Pittsboro Moves to Saturday Relay Event

It's that time again for the annual Pittsboro Relay for Life Event.  But
don't go out to Northwood High on Friday night or you might be put to
work setting up the event.    "We decided after all the rain last year
during our Friday night event that we would try something different this
year", said Carol Esau, Chairperson.  "Our new Saturday event will give
the community more opportunities to come out and support our fight
against cancer and it also gives us more opportunities for activities
and entertainment for all ages". =20

The Pittsboro Relay for Life Event kicks off with a Mega Yard Sale
starting at 7 am Saturday morning on the Northwood High Tennis Courts.
We will have thousands of items including designer clothing, furniture,
accessories, baby and children's items, books, CDs, games and much more.
Everyone is invited and there's never an admission fee to the event.=20

If you've never been to the Relay for Life, it's always like a large
community reunion and carnival.  There will be inflatables for the kids
and they will have their own Kids Walk at 9 am.  Many of the area's
costumed characters will be in attendance to walk around the track with
the children.  "It's never too early to teach your children to give back
to the community", said Erin Kaplan, Kids Walk Chairperson.  "We would
love to have the track full."  Children can register the morning of the
event for $5.

At 10 am, the community's survivors will be honored by walking or riding
the opening lap.  Their caregivers will join them for the second lap.  A
reception will be held for the survivors at the event starting at 9 am.
Survivors may also pick up their t-shirts that morning. =20

The Pittsboro Annual Relay for Life Motorcycle Ride starts at Lowe's
Home Improvement at 11 am (registration at 10 am) and will go through
the county and end at Northwood in time for lunch. =20

Throughout the day, there will be so many activities it will be
difficult for folks to choose what to do.  "Make sure you come hungry",
Esau said.  "Many of our teams are preparing home cooked foods such as
pinto beans, hot dogs, walking tacos, baked goods, pork tenderloin
biscuits, funnel cakes, ice cream and much more.  We'll be serving
breakfast, lunch, and dinner on Saturday."

As always, the Luminaria Ceremony will take place at 9 pm.  It's not too
late to purchase luminaries at the event to remember someone who has
lost their battle or to honor a survivor.=20

"We are so pleased to be hosting our first Celebration of Hope Sunrise
Service on Sunday at 7 am.  We hope the entire community will come out
and celebrate and then you can still make it back to your own churches
for Sunday services."

It is my extreme pleasure to announce that on Saturday, October 24, 2009, the Second Annual day at the Farm, (Benefiting Diabetes Education in Rural North Carolina)Â

Last year's kick off event was well received by the community, featuring 2 local bands, one nationally known entertainer (Kim Anthony) , the NC State University clogging team, and myself as MC.

This years event will be even better as we have decided to make it a full blown Bluegrass Jamboree.  Once again, yours truly will be the MC for the event, and returning to the Farm's stage will be The back Porch boys, from Chapel Hill.  Other entertainers will be announced as dates are confirmed.  This years event will not only include a car show and great food vendors (Grillzilla will be there again!) but activities for the kids like hay rides and games.  All the music and fun revolves around a Diabetes Health Fair.

The ChathamArts 100 Mile: Sustainable Cinema Series presents WITH  
night, May 19th, *7:30 pm, at the Old Granary Restaurant in  
Fearrington Village.   Greensboro filmmaker Matthew Barr's  
documentary follows the last days of the Hooker Furniture operation  
in Martinsville, VA.  Along the way, employees at the factory share  
their perspectives on work, community, and survival in a country  
devastated by deindustrialization and outsourcing. Their pride in  
their work and their determination to survive affirm that, despite  
the current economic climate, we are a country of doers, and our  
workers are the match of any around the world. WITH THESE HANDS shows  
the impact of globalization's "race to the bottom" on skilled workers  
across America and recently premiered at the RiverRun Film Festival  
in Winston-Salem.

WITH THESE HANDS is part of a series of documentaries produced by the  
Unheard Voices Project, a nonprofit set up by Barr and his wife,  
Cornelia W. Barr, to capture the stories of workers and their  
families affected by globalization and technological change. It  
follows Barr's 2006 documentary, Wild Caught: The Life and Struggles  
of an American Fishing Town  (ChathamArts screened last October in  
the series) which tells the story of a NC coastal community  
struggling with rampant coastal development, rising gas prices, and  
cheap imported seafood. For more information about the Unheard Voices  
Project, visit

The 100 Mile Sustainable Cinema Series celebrates local producers and  
directors and their independent works in film and video.  Films are  
followed by Q&A's with the filmmakers and lively discussion.  
Beverages and popcorn available during event.   Admission $5/students  
$3.  All proceeds benefit ChathamArts and its arts in education  
programs. More information about the film series and upcoming

Subject: Forgetting Earth

Published in the Chapel Hill Herald Sun May 9, 2009

by Tim Keim
MAY 5, 2009

I'm not quite sure how I came to juxtapose species extinction with Alzheimer's Disease (AD), but the more I think about it, the more sense it makes. Species extinction and AD share a common root. Researchers have identified environmental factors as one of the chief causes of AD. The environmental factors in AD and species extinction are, in general, the human created disturbance and pollution of the delicately balanced composition of our air, water and soil; the building blocks from which we and our host (Earth) are made.

During the Post War Period, literally thousands of chemicals were formulated and loosed upon the environment. Their uses are myriad, and the study of their power to mutate human genes is now an established field of science. Because of the dollar signs in the eyes of corporate capitalists, neither thought nor care was given to the life threatening toxicity of these novel preparations. Government abdicated its responsibility to protect us (and still does) in favor of the industrial dominance that Americans enjoyed as victors in WWII. “To the victors go the spoils† now carries an ironically sinister and  opposite meaning.

For some time I've been wondering why we don't seem to understand the gravity of the slow motion health and environmental crises in which we now find ourselves. I've puzzled, bemused, to witness swelling calamity on so many fronts, and still our preoccupation with stuff and material pursuits captivates us to the exclusion of the tsunami that gathers.

According to current estimates, the incidence of AD will quadruple in the next 50 years.
AD strikes a new victim every 70 seconds.

A United Nations study in 2002 predicted that 25% of the Earth's animals will disappear in the next 30 years. ( )

The results of both species extinction and AD are frighteningly parallel: Holes in the ecosystem of our gray matter and holes in the web of life that keeps us alive. What we are losing is the memory of the miraculous mystery of Eden with which we have been bequeathed.

Some everyday examples: The fact that we commonly consume supermarket produce    laced with toxic chemicals and health wasting fast foods is clear evidence that we've forgotten the delicious, life-giving foods that fortified our ancestors. The fact that people no longer remember when the rivers in Chatham County, (and all over the country), ran clear is another case of planetary Alzheimer's. As we forget what nurtured us and no longer value it, the planet is forgetting how to produce the ecosystems that nurture us. Still another: Not only have we forgotten, but we've aggressively forsaken the sacrosanct life cycles that keep our soil healthy. Again, we've traded them for synthetic chemicals that are killing our rivers and smothering our coastal oceans with dead zones. Stop me please! Burning coal, the most polluting fossil fuel, warms the globe, slowly choking all living things. Don't be fooled, “clean coal† is a transparent ruse. With Rome ablaze,
 we, the collective Nero, fiddle with no sense of urgency about our future.

All components of our life-support systems are under attack: From us! Pogo, the newspaper comic character was right, “I have seen the enemy, and it is us†.

The slow degradation of the specialized gases, liquids and solids that are custom-made to support human life raises so little response from us. Is it the siren of greed and the tubercular consumption it breeds that anesthetizes us to a predicament so perilous? Have current pollution levels already numbed our instinct to survive?

We are currently in the grip of the greatest extinction since the dinosaurs.. In Chatham County alone there are 17 species quietly fading from our memories ( ). These beings represent unique, and perhaps indispensable expressions of the Divine Will that keep the web of life intact.  Tattered, incomplete ecosystems are gravely dangerous places.

Will the erosion of our brain power lead us to accept a less than a livable Chatham County? How near are we to the final environmental compromise that will endanger our ability to survive?

 Leaving our plant and animal cousins defenseless now will also leave us without defense hereafter.

Subject: mower repair recommendation

Someone wrote in about their riding lawn mower that needed repair. I have a Sears mower also and use Jason Teleki for repairs. He is in Siler (663-4559) but comes to my house in Pittsboro and does the repair. Ask him if he'll do near Jordan Lake. He is incredibly knowledgable, reasonably priced, friendly, fast, responsible, honest and returns calls promptly. He fixed things on the mower that several other folks missed and saved me lots of money!

Subject: Help

We (my family) have been helping some Bhutanese refugees in High Point.
They were in refugee camps in Nepal for 17 years and have come to this
country with literally nothing.  One of the main things we have been helping
them with is transportation.  Most of them have never even been in a car,
never mind driven one so they need help getting different places. The
transportation issue was not so difficult when there were three people we
were helping, two weeks ago the number had risen to nine and now there are
three to five more people coming this week.  I was wondering if anyone knew
of a 12 or 15 passenger van we could borrow or rent reasonably inexpensively
every weekend.

Thanks for any help or advice you can give us,

Subject: Capital Bank is NOT backing Plenty! Who is?

"Capital Bank was approached by a group asking if we could be a currency exchange," Cecil Walter with Capital Bank said.

Visit the plenty web site and you will see that Capital Bank is only offering exchange services -

The PLENTY is backed by trust. The only reason to accept a PLENTY is because you know what it is worth, and you are confident you can claim that value from it when you need it.  
Capital Bank in Pittsboro is offering exchange services at the rate of $.90 for 1P.

In light of the discounted exchange rate… you’re probably wondering about asking for change while shopping.
The short answer is that when you pay in PLENTYs, expect to receive your change in PLENTYs. Asking for change in Federal Reserve Notes is a local-economy faux pas.

Section 1 Convertibility of the PLENTY

A. The Piedmont Local EcoNomy Tender (PLENTY) is convertible to Federal Reserve Notes at participating financial institutions (Reserve Partners) at the exchange rate approved by the Board of Trustees, but is not guaranteed by any person or institution.

B. All circulating PLENTYs must be fully backed by appropriate reserves at all times. The Board of Trustees will work with Reserve Partners to assure full convertibility with appropriate audits and internal controls.

B.J. Lawson states that "the key issue is that a trustworthy currency must be backed by *something* of accepted value.
Our bylaws allow us to release additional PLENTY “flavors† that are backed by other commodities, as well — perhaps local biodiesel, agricultural commodities, or gold/silver."

The question remains - Who IS backing the Plenty? How much money is in reserve backing the Plenty? Where is this reserve located and who manages in?

Subject: Big thanks from "Kudzu" folks!

Many many thanks to our community from the actors, musicians, artists, and technicians of the recent successful run of "Kudzu, a Southern Musical" at Chatham Mills.

Over 900 local folks supported local arts by being very appreciative audiences for our recent production!

I am very proud of the hardworking group of 40 people who put together a show that proved that you can attend entertaining  theatre without leaving home!  

Central Carolina Community College theatre students and our many local volunteers did a professional job working as an ensemble producing this wonderful script written by locals Jack Herrick, Doug Marlette, and Bland Simpson.  We appreciate Tom Roberts and Chatham MIlls Development Corporation for allowing us to reside in the old mill space for our shows since our 2003-05 production of "Millworker."

The spirit of our grassroots theatre endeavor is to allow everyone opportunities for growth in all aspects of theatre production and to build community through our audiences.
We are so happy to have accomplished both.

most graciously,
Ellen Bland, director

She is about 60lbs.

She loves cats and gets along with other dogs.
She is spayed and up to date on her shots.
Her records are at Jordan Lake Animal Hospital.

We have had her for just over a year, and cannot keep her.
She needs a yard she can run around in safely.
Fenced yard or a farm would probably be ideal.

We love her very much, but she is spending too much
of her life indoors living with us.  We would like to see
her have a good life with good people like she deserves.

Subject: Get on your bike!!!! Chatham Spokes can help!

Well summer is here and the kids are about to be out of school.  Are their
bikes ready for vacation? Are your bikes ready to go for the rides with
them? It is time to get them tuned up and ready for the fun!!

Mountain bikers, are your bikes ready for what is sure to be an awesome
trail riding season? Is that race right around the corner and your bike has
not been tuned or overhauled since last season? Let me know I can fix it for
you. Ready for some new components and need someone to professionally
install them? Let me know, I can do it all.

Road bike folks, are you ready for the charity rides and benefits this
season? Is your race schedule packed and you have no time to tune your bike?
I can help. Get it professionally prepped and ready for that big ride/race.

I have over 20 years experience in the bicycle industry. I have built
bicycles from the ground up and have worked on just about every type of
bicycle that there is. I would love to help you get your bike back in
running order if it has been awhile or to do repairs or tune ups if you need
them. I can repair flats, true wheels, replace broken spokes, tune ups,
major and minor repairs, major and minor overhauls and new, frame up builds.
I can supply parts or use yours. I can also help in the selection of a new
bike or help find that cool used one and then get you on it and set up

I can pick up your bike and return it or do some things on site at your
home. Your choice.

I have very reasonable rates and will be happy to email you a list of my
services and prices upon request or I can come give you an estimate.

Let's get you back on the trails or the road so you can enjoy your summer.

Chocolate Mousse . . .
Since mousse is French for foam . . .
Chocolate Foam

Amazingly, these super bubbles were figured out over a century ago.  In this

techniques that don’t require space-age polymers or hydrogenated grease.  We
will use wholesome, natural, and mostly local ingredients to produce both
the mousse and the hollandaise (a rich lemon butter sauce - need I say

The class size is limited to ten students so that all will get hands-on
experience, ask and get answers to any question.  Each student will take
home the written recipes as well as a pint of the chocolate mousse and a cup
of the hollandaise for dinner that evening.

Chef John Wasson started cooking when he was nine years old.  He was
pestering his mom to make some chocolate chip cookies and she pointed out
that he could read, and that the recipe was on the back of the bag of
chocolate chips.  John has since held sous chef and executive chef positions
in Cary, Winston-Salem, Greensboro, and Statesville, North Carolina.  He
currently makes nutritional supplements and various medicinal cremes, most
of which go to California in bulk before you see them locally in little

Bring the following items to class (if you have them):
An apron or clothes that can get chocolatey
Reusable pint (2-cup) container
Reusable quart (4-cup) container

Workshop, Mousse, Hollandaise and Recipies to take home (bring your own
