Subject: CCCC does care

As hard as it was to write the complaint about CCCC, I'm glad that I did.
I've had several responses from others with simular experiences so I don't
feel so alone but more importantly, Theresa Cry and Karen Allen of CCCC were
quick to let me know that they did care!  Their responses and sincere
attitudes righted all of the wrong even if they didn't help my daughter get
back on track (and they did) I would have been happy just to know that this
was not what CCCC was about but they went above and beyond.  Thanks to them
and thanks to those that responded.

Subject: problems with CCCC


You are 100% correct about problems at CCCC.  As a full-time student, I have
experienced your frustrations over lack of communication and unwavering,
illogical rules many times.  While not all, but most of the staff at CCCC
acts as if students should feel lucky they are helping us.  At CCCC, the
right hand seldom seems to know what the left hand is doing.   It is a shame
CCCC doesn't stress to their staff that the student's tuition money that
helps pay their salaries.

Best of luck to you and your daughter.

Subject: Hello & Dog Training Testimonial

Hey y'all,

I'm a relatively new member to the list who's been enjoying the local
discussions. I'm compelled to post now to tell all of the dog owners (and
foster folks) out there about a fabulous,best-kept secret! Attagirl K9 is
offering its second session of Obedience Training beginning the first
Saturday in June and running 6 weeks. I just completed the inaugural session
which was soooo good, I've signed up for round 2 with another of my dogs!

Attagirl is run by Lisa Mayhew, who is, no exaggeration, dog-trainer
extraordinaire!! One of Lisa's passions is to train dogs for search and
rescue, and she brings all of her dedication, patience, and wealth of
knowledge to her obediance classes. Over the years, I've worked with several
trainers here and in my native New England, and I have to say, Lisa is one
of the best...but don't ask me, ask my dog!! ;)

Classes meet Saturday mornings from 10 - 11, at the Natural Pet Health
Store, 919-837-0020 (another AMAZING, hopefully not-so-secret must for
animal lovers!) **in Bear Creek. For more info, email
Hope to see you there--I'll be the one with the Poodle ;)

Greetings, chatlisters,

My husband and I are recent shepherds, and we lost our sheep this morning.
We went on a wild sheep chase to no avail- last we heard of them they were

We live on 1116 Marshall Rd, which is near the intersection of Old Graham
and Chicken Bridge.

We are missing 3 Gulf Coast native ewes and one lamb. They have white faces,
are about the size of a golden retriever, and are surprisingly quick on the

Please give us a call at* 542-3827* if you see or hear of them. If you can't
reach us, call Aaron Honeycutt at *542-2646* or *542-0338.*

Thanks so much for keeping an eye out.

I just wanted to let everyone know that one of Clyde's neighbors brought Clyde by and picked up the logs.  I got a great response from my note to the chatlist.  About 10 people offered to help.  Neighbors willing to help neighbors is what will keep a community strong through rough times.

I am trying to contact someone responsible for The Parks to let them know
that the irrigation on the left side of the Old Graham Road gate has been
running and running and running - there's a river going into the storm
drain.  This is an incredible waste of water and it draws from an aquifer
that I also use.  Please stop wasting my water.

Subject: Missing Dalmatian Maranantha Springs/NW Park Woody Store Road area

Hi Chatlisters,

My liver spotted dalmatian, Chief, ran off while I was mowing at
Maranantha Springs/NW Park on Woody Store Road near Silk Hope late
Friday afternoon. He was probably spooked by the mower. He was well
inside the park, but has been known to walk farther than usual when I
mow at home.

His collar has a silver dog tag with my name, his name, my address and
phone on it. He is about ten years old and about 50 lbs. His back legs
are partially lame, so he will have a hard time getting out of a hole,
climbing a hill/steps or jumping into a car/truck.

I've left a photo and contact information at Mr. Woody's store and on
the gate at the park. Please call or email if you or your neighbors see
or find him.

Subject: Just tinkering

I'm always tinkering on something . If I don't stay busy then I pay more attention to how bad I hurt instead of staying busy while  ignoring how bad I hurt . Anyway I am at a point I need something I cant afford to buy new but can possibly buy used if someone has it . I need a metal shop Lathe with a minimum of a 4 ft bed with at least 6 inches from the center of the chuck to the bed . I can repair most any type of machine shop equipment so if you have one that needs some tlc I can buy cheap please let me know . I am working on the fuel cell and the solar water heater/ air conditioner and my exercise power generator . Each project will need parts turned I cant turn on the small hobby lathe I have now . I have had really good luck with the HHO fuel cell and we have working blueprints on the solar panels . I cant afford to pay a machine shop for trial and error fitting and this is why I need a shop lathe . It would be nice to find a decent end mill or Bridgeport I could grab too.
   My projects help me focus and clear my mind . My shop helps me help others and I am trying to make it where I can teach some of what I know to those that need things fixed they cant afford to pay someone to fix . Physically I'm a train wreck but mentally I still have a little brain power left and I would like to share it with others . I have found I can put people that are walking back on wheels so they can get to work . I can still teach people how to service their own car and keep it running smooth .
   I'm toying with a dangerous Idea . its dangerous because I don't know how to fairly implement it . I have those in the automotive repair and parts business I have dealt with for years that know what's a fair price and what's not . I can find parts for almost anything on wheels . With that in mind I can get parts for people in need far cheaper than anyone else most times . I have shop angels that will fix a car for nothing or a very small fee for those in real need . We know that giving someone food always helps but give them a way to work or the doctor and you give them back their independence .  I cant physically do the work anymore but I can put two and two together , the shop angel and the person in need . Id like some input on this ?  Any suggestions ?

Subject: peaches and more at the farmers' markets!

Hi everyone,

So can you believe lil' ole Chatham County now has FOUR farmers' markets? So now NO ONE has an excuse for not being able to make it to at least one of them during the week, right?

Our farmers have been hard at work growing and harvesting our food. This is a great time to buy local - there's lots of great spring produce like sugar snap peas, broccoli, greens, lettuce, onions, and much more while the summer crops are starting to come in. PEACH season has begun, and we still have great strawberries too. And don't forget about all the great locally raised meats and artisanal cheeses AND delicious baked goods AND lovely cut flowers, perennials, bedding plants, and hanging baskets.

Fearrington Farmers' Market from 4:00 til early evening at Fearrington Village

Pittsboro Farmers' Market from 3:30-6:30 pm at the county fairgrounds in Pittsboro

Siler City Farmers' Market from 10:00 am-1:00 pm in downtown Siler City

Carolina Brewery Farmers' Market from 8:00 am-noon at Carolina Brewery off of 15/501 in Pittsboro

Check out Cooperative Extension's Growing Small Farms website at for more information about vendors, products, directions, etc.

Have a great week,

The Olive Branch Caffe has closed its doors for good.  We wanted to say thank you to our many loyal customers and friends who supported us in this difficult economy.  We were very sad and disappointed to have to come to this difficult decision.  We had many wonderful employees who will now be looking for work so this is a sad time for many.  We had a great family of employees and customers at the OBC and we will miss them all.  We held on as long as we could and thank them for there interest in our business/service and gracious comments about our menu.  

It is a financially challenging time for everyone but it is so important to try to remember to shop and eat locally when ever possible.  Many good business with great people are located in Chatham County and we hope that they will all be able to continue to operate and make it through this difficult time.  Please don't forget about our neighbors in Cole Park Plaza, they need you!!!!

Thanks again to all the OBC employees, customers and friends we have met over the last 8 months.  We are so sad to have to say good bye.
