Subject: Chatham PTA Thrift Shops

Just a reminder--when you are cleaning out this summer or after your yard sales--donate your gently used items to the PTA Thrift Shops located in Siler City, Pittsboro and Cole Park. The money raised from the PTA Thrift Shops stays here in Chatham County for our schools. With budget cuts hurting so many schools, this is a great way to help our teachers. Please donate to the PTA Thrift Shops and if you have a hour or two, stop by and offer to volunteer in one of the stores. Your time can be donated to any Chatham County School of your choice. Call the stores for details. Siler City 663-2395--Pittsboro 542-4070--Cole Park 919-969-9457
The PTA Thrift Shop also has a truck for picking up large or multiple items.

Subject: Subject: Mike Komives to lead Chatham Job Club meeting on June 21

Hey ya'll - if you haven't had a chance to meet Mike, please go and meet him.  He is a great guy, very professional, and SO helpful.  Mike helped me with a very difficult job (and life) transition a few years ago, and helped me figure out what was important to me and how to most effectively get it.  If you are stuck, and need help pulling the answers out, go see Mike.

Storytelling for Grown-Ups at the General Store Café

Storytelling for Grown Ups will take place on Wednesday, June 22 from 7 pm to 9 pm at the General Store Café.  The night will feature a variety of storytelling styles and stories from some of the area¹s finest storytellers for only $5.00!

Event organizer, Garry Lipson is a retired high school construction teacher and cross country track coach.  His hilarious personal experience stories will have you on the edge of your seat.

Joining Lipson is Bob Langford who has been a longtime storytelling fixture in the Triangle first in print at the News & Observer, then on TV at WRAL, then for people who couldnŒt read or afford televisions, on WPTF radio.

Melissa Delbridge has won awards from the Southern Humanities Review, the Southern Women Writers Conference, and the Great Lakes Colleges Association for her nonfiction and fiction. In her essay collection, Family Bible (University of Iowa Press, 2008),  she explores themes of race, gender, and sexuality as they impacted her life growing up in the Deep South 1960s and 1970s.  The winner of the Monti's first Hippo Award for Comedy, she is a newcomer to Pittsboro and teaches creative writing at CCCC.

Rounding out the line-up is Claire Ramsey who discovered storytelling by drawing pictures when she was still too young to write.  Ramsey¹s storytelling upgraded from hobby to a business, Stories with Claire, after she took a university storytelling class.  The ³premier storyteller² of Wake Forest and the ex officio of the North Carolina Storytelling Guild, Ramsey believes storytelling helps people value education and learn from one another.

Although this program is not intended for small children, young people ages 10 and up will definitely enjoy this event.

Subject: for Sara Kane (and others) re: small font in GMail

All current web browsers have some sort of "zoom" feature. In some you can magnify just text or the whole window and there are add-ons available that let you permanently set larger or smaller sizes for individual web sites. The most generic answer is to use your browser's "Help" feature and search for "zoom." Zoom is most often found under the View menu of the browser, which will also show you the keyboard shortcut.

A temporary solution, if your mouse has a scroll wheel, is to hold down the control key while moving the wheel away from you. This will temporarily magnify everything on your monitor, not just the web page. A permanent solution is to change the monitor's resolution or use the tools some computer vendors provide for the visually impaired.

Google is your friend; try searching for "zoom web page" for your browser, e.g., "zoom web page firefox"

Subject: Chatlist member Al cooke mentioned in AP story about gardening

Chatham County's extension agent Al Cooke is mentioned in an AP article about gardening -

Lingering downturn helps keep gardening boom going

Read the entire story at

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Many of the millions of people who turned to gardening to save money during the recession appear to be sticking with it during the recovery as food prices remain high and interest in safe, fresh and local food grows nationwide.

Forty-three million American households planned to grow at least some of their own food in 2009, a 19 percent increase from the estimated 36 million who did the year before, said the National Gardening Association, citing the most recent figures available. Spending on food gardening - including growing vegetables, fruit trees, berries and herbs - jumped 20 percent in one year to $3 billion in 2009 and stayed at that level last year, said Bruce Butterfield, research director for the nonprofit association.

With more novice gardeners nationwide, teachers report classes are filling up. Food gardening classes in Chatham County, N.C., for example, have doubled in size in the past five years.

"I've noticed just about any classes that I do that involve edible foods, the number has been up, to the point that I scheduled a specific class on just berries," said Al Cooke, an agricultural extension agent with the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Chatham County Center in Pittsboro, N.C.

Hi there,

Does anyone have information on local Ballet classes?  We were hoping to get in the summer class at the Joy of Movement, however we need something either Tuesday or Thursday afternoon or Saturday.  My daughter is 4.5 and anxious to start ballet!

Thanks so much!

Subject: To Salinda Dahl regarding snakes

No fear here of the blacksnakes, Salinda.  Just protecting what is mine to protect.  I don't kill the snakes, at least not the non-poisonous ones.  Having farm animals can require doing difficult things you'd rather not.  Try not to judge.
