Failed leader of the Chatham Coalition tries to give current board members advice
[Jun. 22, 2011] I just thought it very interesting that Mr. Starkweather took it upon himself to tell the conservatives on the current board of commissioners exactly what they should be about as conservatives. By Dan Marley
 
CenturyLink download rates are inconsistent in PittsboroCenturyLink download rates are inconsistent in Pittsboro
[Jun. 20, 2011] I have noticed that videos download intermittently with a lot of breaks. My upload and download tests seem fine, returning satisfactory speeds. However, videos are interrupted every ten seconds with breaks until the whole video is downloaded once. Then, on the high definition mode, it plays straight through. By Tom Glendinning
 
What will be an acceptable ID for voting in North Carolina?What will be an acceptable ID for voting in North Carolina?
[Jun. 20, 2011] Leela Ellis asked "Tonight on TV it was reported that North Carolina will most likely be requiring ID in order to vote. Does amyone know what will be considered as acceptable ID?" I often wonder about the details of proposed laws when I hear about them. Google is absolutely your friend in situations like these By Barry T. Campbell

What real conservatism in Chatham County meansWhat real conservatism in Chatham County means
[Jun. 17, 2011] Now, the debate is defined. The nature of conservative and liberal politics has been opened. Maybe the argument on conservatives is a means to avoid the major problem with the Democratic Party. It was the KKK from 1880 to 1960. How did the blacks become convinced that it was, all of a sudden, the party of compassion, of equality, of the black people? Which party freed the slaves? Which party got women the vote? Step into that tar pit, I beg you. By Tom Glendinning

[Jun. 17, 2011] Mr. Marley appears to have the history of politics and policy in Chatham a little mixed up in his June 11 Chatham Chatlist post. I have been either covering or participating in politics and policy in Chatham for 39 years. I do not believe there has necessarily been a correlation between a party label and whether an elected official is considered conservative or progressive on any particular issue. In fact, until the approval of the Voting Rights Act in 1965, the Democratic Party in the south was the home of the most conservative politicians in the country. Remember Jesse Helms started out as a Democrat. By Jeffrey Starkweather

CenturyLink has been a nightmare from day oneCenturyLink has been a nightmare from day one
[Jun. 17, 2011] I cannot bite my tongue any longer. We have lived in Chatham County less than year. Our only choice was CenturyLink. Never heard of them, but no choice. They were nightmare from day one. By Jane Mann
 
Parents of rising high school seniors need to plan ahead to cut graduation expensesParents of rising high school seniors need to plan ahead to cut graduation expenses
[Jun. 15, 2011] Graduation is over and we are marching on. I have a Northwood cap and gown for sale, which was worn once. You will have to buy the tassel for next year from Herff Jones (or somewhere else, if you can find it cheaper, which I am sure you can.) Cap and gown are XLand will fit someone 6 foot or taller. Male or female (also have the white collar for girls that you attach) $10. This is planning ahead. However, I think what they charge for this stuff that you wear once and basically throw away or put in the attic is absurd. By Meg Miller
 
Kudos Verizon. Get with it CenturyLink.Kudos Verizon. Get with it CenturyLink.
[Jun. 14, 2011] I read with almost hysterical laughter Jina's post about CenturyLink, having just spent the last month battling CenturyLink myself. If I ran my business they way they run theirs we would be closed in a week. I have no phone service at my house, just the DSL line. I have had problems with it on and off for the whole year and a half I've lived there. By Pam Fulk
 
Chatham Citizens for Effective Communities has turned into a liberal left-wing advocacy group
[Jun. 10, 2011] As a former member of the Board of Directors of the Chatham Citizens for Effective Communities, I really feel that I should respond and comment on Caroline Iverson's post on Chatham Chatlist #4055. I resigned from the Board in May of 2007 as I found the positions the board took were exclusively a left-wing and / or environmentalist in nature. By Colin Coxall
 
Videos of county commission meetings aids government transparencyVideos of county commission meetings aids government transparency
[Jun. 10, 2011] I have just watched the first of four videos posted by our BOC on the Chatham County site. I would like to express my thanks to the new board of commissioners and their commitment to transparency by providing these videos for all to access. By Colin Coxall
 
Chatham County commissioner Mike Cross thinks the approved budget is basically soundChatham County commissioner Mike Cross thinks the approved budget is basically sound
[Jun. 10, 2011] Chatham County commissioner Mike Cross thinks the approved budget is basically sound. While Coalition Commissioner Sally Kost prods her small contingent of proponents to raise up pitchforks over this year's county budget, Mike Cross offers sounder more level-headed advice. His suggestion is to "take a deep breath and remain calm." By Tom West
 
The final public input session was the first Tuesday of last NovemberThe final public input session was the first Tuesday of last November
[Jun. 10, 2011] This post replies to comments that the citizens have not been heard in recent BOC meetings regarding budget, schools, and other issues. Our democracy is actually a republican form of government. Representatives constituted by elected officials make decisions regarding all facets of policy and practice of our government. By Tom Glendinning
 
Commissioner Sally Kost asked supporters to bring pitchforks to the commission meetingCommissioner Sally Kost asked supporters to bring pitchforks to the commission meeting
[Jun. 9, 2011] You can not make this stuff up. Right there on Sally's facebook page. In the most irresponsible act I have ever witnessed, Coalition Democrat Commissioner Sally Kost calls for her supporters to take up pitchforks at this past Monday's board of commissioners meeting. By Tom West
 
Chatham Citizens for Effective Communities is not a liberal advocacy groupChatham Citizens for Effective Communities is not a liberal advocacy group
[Jun. 9, 2011] In Chatham Chatlist post number 4052, Mr. West asked, “When did CCEC become an environmental group?” He also declared, “CCEC has always been known as a liberal political action group.” As a member of the CCEC Board of Directors, I welcome the opportunity to respond to his question and comment. By Caroline Siverson
 
Seeking a more functional democracySeeking a more functional democracy
[Jun. 9, 2011] Dear Dr. John, I appreciate and thank you for your post, and understand your bias. I am more ambivalent, but support your other views on this subject. However I would make a couple of comments. By Joe Kingley
