Subject: Now I’m conflicted. Do I vote for Diana Hale and Karen Howard?
Brian Bock’s post (# 5005) linked to an upbeat article in the Chapel Hill News. I liked what I saw. The article confirms what I hoped for Chatham County when I voted for Walter Petty, Pam Stewart, and Brian Bock in 2010. I consider Brian Bock a friend.
Friends may disagree. And I disagree with the current Board of Commissioners. And I disagree with Mark Zimmerman’s article when they say the “professional staff” of county government employees changed their attitudes. I got caught right in the crosshairs of our county manager’s “attitude”. Along with “code enforcement” and solid waste management.

Subject: shooting safely…
over the past fouth of July there was a few fireworks in the area. as I sat on the front porch admiring them from a distance, I noticed there was gunfire as well.
rifle as well as pistol shots cracked the air. now, I have shot, I shoot, and I shall shoot again. BUT, I am aware of where I am shooting!!
the next afternoon when my wife got in from work, she noticed a piece of our siding had been damaged.
yes, after looking at the damage, I determined it was a small calibre bullet hole….about fifteen feet from where I had been sitting!

Subject: Tales of Old Chatham: Delayed apparition . . .
In the mid 1980s, when I was earning my living as an antiques dealer, I had the good fortune to acquire some fine pieces of early North Carolina furniture, much of which was from Chatham County. One hot July summer, I was offered the contents of a home several miles south of Siler City. There was the main house, a separate kitchen, a slave cabin, several out buildings, sheds and big barns. There was an assortment of furniture there, some from the late seventeen hundreds up to the nineteen fifties.

Subject: Just sign the cell tower petition Karen Howard
While a few claim that Karen Howard has the best intentions towards poor people, Karen Howard’s own words betray her.
Intentions don’t mean much at all, when you publicly state that you don’t want a cell phone tower because you’re not a neighborhood of low income homes.
At this point, in order NOT to appear totally tone deaf to the needs of those less fortunate than her, Karen Howard should publicly state that she misspoke and go ahead and sign the pro cell tower petion at

Subject: Shout out for Tritech IT folks in Siler City
I highly recommend the guys at Tritech in Siler City. They really know their stuff. Plus, they are personable and reasonable, easy to get to (a nice ride even from north Chatham), and have easy parking and quick turnaround.
I have now relied on them for two years and am very pleased with their work and how they care for customers. Contact Jody (business owner), Will, or Walt. They are at 112 Siler Crossing, Siler City, behind McDonald’s and next to Compadres and Chatham Homes Realty. (919) 200-6003 or email _Tritech@nctritech.com_ (mailto:Tritech@nctritech.com) .

Subject: Democrat candidates’ “intentions and heart” as “public servants”
Do our Democrat candidates “. . .care about poor people”? We are supposed to “look” at their “intentions and heart[s]“?
That is beyond absurd. Inane. Let’s all look at the intentions and hearts of our Republican candidates for BOC and what do we see so clearly? Evil. Uncaring. But the intentions and hearts of Democrats are so full of love and caring.
How can we measure Karen Howard’s “public service” on the school board? By what measures can we determine success or achievement? As compared to the performance of who else?
