So someone has TWO dogs running around loose without name tags. You can buy them for $1 at the Orange County Animal Shelter. FOCAS offered to buy 100 for the Chatham Shelter but there was no interest

In the above (rather lengthy) document the FCC asks for comments on many aspects of Broadband including deployment, quality, speed, adoption, affordability, accuracy of mapping of unserved areas etc. This is an opportune time for Chatham residents, property owners, and business owners to again let the FCC know the state of broadband in our area and what our needs are. Please note the short filing time.

Hello Chatlisters,

I’m celebrating the 15 anniversary of offering 6 yoga classes a week near downtown Pittsboro. It has developed into a wonderful, heartfelt, community gathering space.Through breathing, meditation, movement and relaxation exercises, yoga joins body, mind, and spirit into a balanced whole. It can really be transformative, and I teach various level classes. The Chatlist survey showed the studio to be the favorite of Chatham County! Sometimes I have a wait-list to be able to register for a class, and occasionally I have a spot open where you can begin right away.

Chatham County Dems and Republicans agree on major issue

Subject: Chatham Dems and Republicans agree on major issue

We have ample evidence that John Graybeal and Jeffrey Starkweather are in charge of leading the opposition against the conservative commissioners. Graybeal and Starkweather will continue to write letters (for others to sign) with misleading talking points in the hopes of confusing us.

Let’s look at the facts based on actions and meeting minutes.
