Subject: Thank you, MArk!

I want to thank Goodnite Mark for his public apology to me and others for lumping all people who make certain statements or support certain causes in one box. It takes a gentleman with sensitivity to publicly apologize and take responsibility for his statements. I appreciate that very much, Mark.

The nap

Subject: the nap

A delightful time it is to nap of an afternoon such as today in Pittsboro following a lunch provided by my friend Tim as part of his huge package of gift food. Granola with milk and raisins and yeast and a cut up kiwi fruit, slowly eaten after reciting the Five Reflections and the Four Blessings my teacher, Gentei, sent me in the hospital. What a lovely and grateful exercise it has become before each meal. It has caused me to deepen my awareness as I eat a meal.

There was a recent post to the Chatlist regarding the status of Pittsboro Matters. Pittsboro Matters pursued, and received, 501(c)(3) status shortly after incorporation this past summer. It is organized for charitable purposes to assist peoples living in Chatham County and the Town of Pittsboro, North Carolina in the preservation of the local economy, environment and culture of their community.

Pittsboro Matters is run entirely by volunteers, so any donations received go directly toward supporting this mission. Donations can be made through our website, http://www.pittsboromatters.org via PayPal or mailed to Box 1001, Pittsboro, NC 27312.

Kathy Z
I am sorry and you are right ;) I don’t know you and you don’t know me other than the discussions online here . I dont know if your liberal or conservative . I have confused names before too and as another chatlister mentioned yesterday I guess I have thrown all liberals under the bus too. This was part of my last post about having my attitude put back in check this week .

Another great construction job by Jim Nitsch and his crew. They transformed my open air patio to a fantastic screened in patio, complete with roof, cedar siding inside and white siding outside so it now matches my house.

Thank you Jim! Jim can be contacted by email: jim@handyjim.com or you can view his work on his website: www.handyjim.com .

I highly recommend Jim.”

Subject: Follow up on the candidates forum

I attended the candidates forum on Tuesday along with over 100 other intrepid souls. It was a diverse audience with a good number of Democrats, Republicans and Unaffiliated voters in attendance.

As I stated previously, I respect all of the candidates who have put their names on the ballot and are willing to wrestle with the battle of ideas in the public arena.

Liberal CCEC leader Caroline Siverson hates that people think Bock, Stewart, and Petty deserve 4 more years

From: Caroline Siverson
Subject: Response to Heather Johnson’s post August 18th

In her August 18 chatlist post, Heather Johnson implies that when Bock, Stewart, and Petty took office in 2010, the Chatham County budget was in some sort of fiscal crisis that required them to make hard choices between funding arts non-profits and helping battered women in crisis and supplementing teacher compensation. This myth of Chatham’s fiscal instability was perpetuated during the 2010 election season, and was completely unfounded.
