Subject: Softball Advances to Third Round with 8-0 Victory Over North
Lenoir Friday Night

The Lady Chargers Softball team advanced to the Third Round of the 2A
State Playoffs Friday night with an impressive 8-0 victory over North
Lenior. Lauren Martin keyed a second inning rally with a lead off home
run as the Lady Chargers scored three runs in the bottom of the second
en route to their 8-0 victory. Carrie Webster earned the complete game
shut out victory on the mound as she pitched a complete game scattering
5 hits while striking out six Lady Hawks. Following Martin's home run in
the bottom of the second, Lauren Glosson singled and Lauren Oldham later
reached on an error. Carrie Webster drove both runners in on a two run
single to give the Lady Chargers a 3-0 lead.

Keeley Skinner started a Lady Charger rally in the bottom of the fourth
with a lead off triple. She later scored on an RBI Sacrifice Fly by
Lauren Oldham to give the Lady Chargers a 4-0 lead. The Lady Chargers
added two more runs in the fifth and sixth innings. In the fifth, Carrie
Webster led off with a double. Kaitlyn Briggs drove in Webster on an RBI
single to give the Lady Chargers a 5-0 lead. Briggs would also come in
to score to give the Lady Chargers a 6-0 lead.

In the sixth, Desi Medina led off with a single and Lauren Oldham
followed reaching base on an error. Medina scored on an RBI single by
Webster, before Oldham closed out the scoring by stealing home to give
the Lady Chargers their 8-0 victory and a trip to the third round Tues.
night at home at 7pm.

Kaitlyn Briggs, Keeley Skinner, and Padgett Harrington all made nice
catches in the outfield, while Christa Surles, Lauren Oldham, and Desi
Medina played nice defense in the infield for the Lady Chargers. Webster
and Glosson also fielded well from their positions throughout the night.

Subject: Artwork by CCCC students at the Bynum General Store

*Bynum Front Porch Hosts Works of Art Created by CCCC Students
On Friday, May 29 from 7 pm to 9 pm and Saturday, May 30 starting at 5 pm,
Bynum Front Porch will be proudly displaying works of art at the Bynum
General store created by students in the Exhibit Design Class at Central
Carolina Community College.  The works of art will also be on display on
Friday, June 5th during the Friday Night Music Series concert.

There will be nine featured artists.

Painter and textile designer, Carol Kroll decided to combine her love of
gardening with design to create beautiful sculptures using homegrown gourds..
 Using a gourd as art medium, Kroll artfully carves paints and finishes the
gourds, often incorporating her patterns from her career as a surface

Holly Felice considers herself a mixed media artist.  She uses everything
from wood to metal to clay or glass to tell a story with her art.  She
creates unique sculptures and always finds a way to recycle cast off

Sharyn Walker has a graphic design degree but decided two-dimensional art
wasn’t enough.  She took a welding class and fell in love with metal work
and three-dimensional art.  Walker’s sculptures tend to incorporate animals
and nature in design.  She has been known to create art out of automobile
parts found in a scrap yard.  She enjoys creating art out of something once
vitally useful but later discarded.

After being a trained commercial interior designer for many years, Faith
Flowers took a break and fell in love with clay.  Whether she is throwing at
the wheel, hand-building a piece, or altering a thrown piece, Flowers is in
her own world creating a unique masterpiece out of clay.

For Trish Welsh, making pots started as a way to relax from the stresses of
her work as a clinical social worker. Her focus now is primarily making
functional ware combining her love for food and cooking with making pots.
 She believes that pots should be functional and look beautiful with the
food on a table.  She enjoys working with textures and patterns found in
daily life like sand on the beach, bark on trees and ferns uncurling in the

Deborah Motter absolutely loves the malleability of clay.  Stoneware and
porcelain are her chosen media that get carved, plodded, pinched, patted and
even thrown into realistic portraits, fantasy pieces and other various
pottery objects.

Wheel-thrown pots that are often altered, paddled or stamped and
occasionally hand-built are Ruth Morgans’ specialty.  She uses earth-toned,
layered glazes and slips that respond serendipitously to atmospheric firing..
 Her goal is to create beautiful, functional and funky, elegant pots that
people can use every day.

Ruth Ella Brown loves the unimaginable opportunities clay provides to create
objects of art or an original display.  Brown’s sculptures are inspired from
everyday observations with a few abstract designs thrown in.

Strange creatures inhabit the mind of Dr. Forrest Greenslade.  His whimsical
sculptures, which he calls *Forrest Dwellers*, are derived from a life-long
love of nature and mythology. Greenslade’s work is highly stylized, bounding
on cartoonish. His sculptures are enhanced with innovative coatings and
patinas producing color, texture and an illusion of movement.

This show is not to be missed so stop by the Bynum General Store on Friday
and check out the music of Hot Rooster or come by Saturday for the Bynum
Front Porch Auction. Enjoy music, works of art and bid on some great items
and services to help fund programming and scholarships.

We’ll see you this weekend!

Subject: Varsity Softball Falls to West Stokes 4-0 in the Third Round of
the State Playoffs

The Varsity Softball team's season came to an end last night with a 4-0
loss to highly ranked West Stokes here at NHS. Carrie Webster pitched a
complete game and allowed no runs after the first inning. However, the
Lady Chargers' bats were not able to overcome a 4-0 deficit after one
inning of play. Webster struck out 8 Lady Wildcats and allowed only four
hits after the first inning. However, the Lady Chargers were only able
to muster four hits on the night.

Carrie Webster and Lauren Oldham each had two hits on the night. Webster
doubled with two outs in the first but was stranded there without
scoring. Webster also singled and walked later in the night. Oldham
legged out an infield single and singled sharply up the middle to start
what seemed to be a Lady Charger rally in the sixth. But, after being
sacrificed to second by Christa Surles and a walk to Carrie Webster,
both runners were stranded resulting in the final 4-0 score.

Keeley Skinner, Christa Surles, and Carrie Webster all had nice games
defensively for the Lady Chargers. The Lady Chargers end their very
successful season as Mid State 2A Conference Champs, Mid State 2A
Conference Tournament Champs, and for the third consecutive year won
multiple playoff games in the state playoffs.

The Lady Chargers have dedicated their success this season to Mrs. Resa
Webster, mother of Varsity Softball player Carrie Webster, as a sign of
their support for her in her battle with cancer.
The team wore pink laces in support of Mrs. Webster and in support of
breast cancer research this season. The Lady Chargers wanted to give
back the support to Mrs. Webster that she has given to the Lady Charger
softball family over the years.

From: We cannot afford this bus
Subject: Chatham County budget concerns

The leadership of several grassroots organizations in Chatham County met
last evening to discuss details of the proposed budget.
One issue of importance needs our immediate action!

At a time when everyone is struggling to make ends meet, is it enough to
propose a revenue neutral budget which really includes a 6% increase?  Many
people out of work and foreclosures are up as are delinquent taxes. We all
have to make tough choices between "wants" and "needs".  The county should
do the same thing.

While the budget cuts 11 teaching positions it includes $59,000 for a new
Transportation Planner salary, $60,000 to update the Land Use Plan and
$130,000 to cover the potential cost of the Chapel Hill - Pittsboro bus
pilot project.  It also includes $522,266 to continue the plan started last
year to set aside money each year to buy future park land.  While parks are
nice they're not necessary when people are losing their homes.

Chapel Hill Transit obtained a grant that would help pay to start bus
service between Chapel Hill and Pittsboro for 18 months.  It would be a
limited run, express service intended for commuters that would service a
very limited number of county residents.  The details are still being worked
about but Chapel Hill Transit will provide the busses, Pittsboro will pay
approximately $20,000 and the County has allotted $130,000 for next year.
Riders would pay $3 per trip or $65 per month.  Any fares would reduce the
cost.  It will do little to help people without transportation since they
will still have to find a way to get to one of the bus stops.  Mass transit
is rarely cost effective even in areas with high population density which
Chatham County is most certainly not.  Why should people throughout the
county that are struggling to make ends meet subsidize commuting for a few
people with jobs in Chapel Hill, or worse, help to subsidize Chapel Hill


***  Chatham County should not favor eliminating 22 educators while adding a
Director for a pilot transportation program*

****  This proposed bus line will benefit a select few at the cost of our
entire county*

****  Is Chatham county REALLY proposing that we provide independent
transportation options, or are we merely agreeing to supplement a failed
Chapel Hill transportation program?*

****  The proposed budget includes a $59,000 salary for a NEW Transportation

****  Is a bus line necessary? There is no justification for a bus line from
Pittsboro to Chapel Hill*

We must act NOW! *Please forward this e-mail onto your e-mail lists*.
The Board of Commissioners will be reviewing the proposed budget over the
next two weeks so contact them quickly to express your concerns about how
your tax dollars are being spent.

We have included their contact information below. They need to hear form us
by e-mail or phone call at once!

*There will be a Board of Commissioners meeting Monday June 1st at 9am in
the Agriculture Building Auditorium (behind the courthouse in Pittsboro on
the ground floor) with a Public Input Session - let your voice be heard!

Subject: In Praise of Chatham

Previously published in the Chapel Hill Herald SunIn Praise of Chatham
May 19, 2009

Readers of this column
often find pointed critiques of matters that I think need attention
in Chatham County. Doubtless you will read such writings again, soon.
But Spring time has been so intoxicating that I must take this
diversion to also mention the solid core of wild goodness that is
Chatham County.

Regardless of calendar
time, for me, Spring begins when the Forsythia and Bradford Pear
burst their buds. Cardinals become my alarm clock, unless I get lucky
enough to have a Chuck Wills Widow perch in my backyard. I did strike
it lucky some weeks ago when that very bird chose our lot to light
and sing loud enough to raise the sun over the horizon.

The Dogwoods appear like
white butterflies in the forest. Being a small tree, the limbs are so
thin as to be nearly invisible at a distance. The flowers seem
suspended, floating almost, without any support the eye can detect.
This sleight of bloom lends an air of magic to the wooded hill barren
through winter's cold.

Praise as well to the
Tulips, Irises and Lilies'; exotic shapes dandled on a breeze,
lightly sweet.

The Daffodils among the
early bulbs in varied sizes this year through the snow did push. Such
tenacity and strength.

The Pansy starts planted
by my neighbor withstood the frozen days and will now brave the day
long sun beating down on petals that appear so frail. No human could
take such extremes, yet we equate Pansies with the weak among us. Ha!

And again I'll praise the
birds whose morning chorus swells each day with promise, contentment,
wooing, and the hope of chicks to feed. Bluebirds nest in the boxes I
bought from the credit union years ago. To and fro they go gathering
scraps for their nest. Before long both mom and dad are flying
sorties all day to feed the young who screech upon their every
arrival. Fiercely standing guard, alas, the bluebird is no match for
a black snake who senses an easy meal. One year Michele had to peel a
three footer off the tree and send it packing so the blue brood could
live to fledge.

The cry of the Red
Shouldered Hawk above the house is a frequent sound. Soaring, at
times harassed by crows or jays to be steered off their nests.

My favorites, the
Vultures, not comely I know, but nobler in sustained flight than
their local avian cousins. Surfing Spring breezes with not so much as
a flap of a wing, grace on the ethers searching out corruption to
devour. The ancient Egyptians held them in high esteem for that very

Each year a Meadowlark
makes its nest in the field on the community college campus.
Spring-of-the-year he calls thither a mate to pursue. Great
accompaniment to yoga practice in the sunny vernal morn.

Gentle showers and soft
breezes are also to be exalted. So ordinary, perhaps; yet so splendid
carrying coolness before Summer's furnace. Not coolness only but the
scent of the Honeysuckle and her confederates Privet and Wisteria.
Through a cool Ante Meridian walk these wafting winds exhilarate the
brain with perfumed laced greetings.

I mustn't forget the the
Peepers and toads, symphonic serenades soothing. They sing another
irrepressible vocal harmony in the ode to yearly renewal.

Not only the wild, but the
cultivated wonders of Chatham as well I must herald. The coming of
the farmer's markets around. Tender lettuce, asparagus and
strawberries a bumper year we've had. Friends and neighbors greeting
and meeting at the focal point of local food grown by local people;
the common denominator of goodness, health and social cohesion.

Limited as I am by both
space and descriptive powers this praise of Chatham's Spring must now
close. Until then allow me to encourage you to dawdle, tarry and
otherwise slow your days in what ever way you can to imitate the bee
and suckle the nectar from the Spring. Defy the tyrants who manage
your time, dirty your hands to plant a tomato, a bean, perhaps a fig
tree. Invest in life's soil a harvest of bounty to take in the

Hey Gene, not sure why but I haven't recieved a chatlist in over two weeks. Is something wrong or do I need to re-subscribe? If you can please hit me up and let me know what is going on. Thanks in advance, Jason.

This has been an interesting week.

I did get a chatlist out on Monday night and the chatlist classifieds went out this Friday afternoon.

On Tuesday my PC power supply went out and I had to get a replacement unit.

On Wednesday night our DSL died and it took a couple of days to get it up and running.
