I just spoke with a friend of mine who attended the Piedmont Biofarm dinner this past Saturday evening. She told me what an incredible time she and her date had: delicious menu created by Geoff Seelen and the Biofarm crew, and a chance to deepen friendships with some of the guests.

This distribution is part of a shared preparedness planning effort by Chatham, Harnett, Lee, and Wake counties. This supply will replace any expired KI tablets that residents may have or for residents that did not receive tablets in the last distribution.

Subject: a solution to climate change? Not!

I guess we will continue to get pounded over the head about climate change until we are either brain-dead or just comatose enough to go along with the narrative. While I am not denying that the climate is changing (it always does), it makes me chuckle to see how “global warming†became “climate change†when the globe didn’t actually warm. Ha ha!

Lowering our own carbon footprints can be as simple as going the speed limit.

Subject: graybeals climate lobby post/Ash waste

We all, as individuals, can do a lot to lower our own carbon footprint. However I am a bit leary of joining with Rep. Ellmers. Did you know she has co-sponsored a bill that will prohibit states from requiring labeling of GMO foods and would prohibit states that already have laws requiring labeling of GMO foods, from implementing their laws? They call this bill the Monsanto dream bill.
To me this shows more concern for big Biz and less for peoples right to know what they are eating. I would look more carefully into this and what it really means to the public. The big companies do not want you to use less. Called profits which = $.

Last week I attended a meeting of the Chatham County Executive Committee, a public hearing on Duke Energy’s proposed permit to store coal ash, and the County Convention for the Democratic Party.

While we may have divergent opinions in our community about a number of issues I think we can all endorse the value of public input and the democratic process.

I encourage all of our citizens to engage democracy with vigor and respectfully put forth their positions with strength in order to build a better tomorrow.

Democrats want to raise your electric bill, propane bill, and gas prices

We had some fun with posts a while back generated by democrat party activities and John Graybeal. Are John Graybeal and Holmes Graybeal related? Just wondering.

Well, Holmes Graybeal wants us to join him and his non-profit agitators to pressure Renee Ellmers in the U.S. House of Representatives to increase what we pay at the pumps for gasoline and diesel, electricity, natural gas, propane, wood pellets for stoves, He wants to raise the rates we pay with the absurd promise we will all get “dividend” checks in the mail.

Subject: What do YOU think?

Did you read the post on Chatlist 5238 attacking a person who writes using his real name identifiable as Andrew George, identifiable as working at a local institution? What did you think, and especially how did you feel, when the attack was made by an unidentifiable person who calls himself Taylor Kish and uses the cover of anonymity to write constantly in the attack mode? Would you want your children to read these vituperous attacks? Would you recommend these posts to your friends? Some readers think and feel they are slimy attacks made by creatures who live under bridges. Others state these violate standards of fairness and integrity.
