Subject: Re: Why do we need DENR?
Mr. Kirkman’s comments on DENR and Jordan water quality are off base.
Cary and Apex receive 32 mgd (million gallons per day) of the total 63 mgd managed by the Division of Water Resources. Orange and Wake Counties, Chatham County, Durham, Holly Springs, OWASA and Morrisvile receive the rest. Chatham has an allotment of 10% of the total. So Cary does not get “all the water.”

Subject: Friday night at the Bynum General Store — Franklin Street Traditional Jazz Band
Don’t miss *The Franklin Street Traditional Jazz Band* at the Bynum General Store and on May 17th. The Franklin Street Traditional Jazz Band is a relatively new, eight-member band formed by musicians from throughout the Triangle Area who share an interest in the early form of jazz, principally as it emerged in New Orleans at the beginning of the last century. The band offers a varied program of classic acoustic jazz featuring recognizable melodies of interest to audiences of all ages. Their music is both toe-tapping and dance-inducing, or just comfortable for listening or singing along. (www.franklinstreettraditionaljazzband.com)

Subject: Anonymous follow up
First, I understand Gene’s reasoning on continuing anonymous speech on the Chatlist. Protecting unpopular speech, such as that of whistle blowers, is indeed a valid concern. Further, it is his list, and I respect his right to administer it as he sees fit.
However, Cryptic, I must say, such noble protections do not apply to the sort of things we see from you. Certainly, your opinions are reasoned, and indeed backed up with facts (such as the recent smart meter post). They’re not even particularly “unpopular” opinions. But, they’re consistently set forth with snark, bile, and gratuitous nastiness. To me, this is the very definition of trolling, and I certainly understand why you wouldn’t want your customers knowing you were behind them.

Having written for a statewide publication under a pseudonym, I recognize the tradeoffs involved with signing our posts with our real names.
The difference seems to be that an “argument” is intended to be “won” and a discussion in intended to lead to a new synthesis. There is a different tone.
Sometimes we are so busy being opinionated we neglect to be thoughtful.

I have been reading the Chatlist for approximately 2 months and have found good information that I might not have known about otherwise. It serves as a good what’s happening “daily newsletter”….

Subject: The Mayor
Chatham Chatlist #4641 Mayor Voller should definitely watch what he says but he is like a lot of NC folks who do not understand why REpubs want to pass an anti-renewable energy bill among with other wacko things (if you canâ€™t take a drug test yourself then why require others to do it).
It is all about free markets but if I have extra solar electricity in my house I am not allowed to sell it back to Duke Energy (even at wholesale prices). I sympathize with him but all I can do is vote.
