Why is Randy Voller making hateful personal attack on Chatham resident?Why is Randy Voller making hateful personal attack on Chatham resident?
[May 12, 2011] It's sad to see a two-faced politician continue the Chatham Coalition practice of personal attacks on private citizens. From a chatlist post on Saturday former Chatham Coalition member Randy Voller decides to make a personal attack on Chatham resident: "Partisans in the crowd including Republican activist Heather Johnson were unmoved by Ms. Pollard's pleas for fair voter access participation." By Tom West
 
Some Chatham Democrats claim two weeks is not long enough to find the time to vote
[May 11, 2011] Each time I attend a board of commissioners meeting and listen to some of the public comments made, it makes me shake my head in wonderment at how in the world anything gets done in this county. There have been so many important and life-altering issues brought before the board, that I am hard pressed to choose one to speak about. I guess I will have to pick my battles (oh - is that too confrontational a word?). So, I will start out with Ms. Mimi Pollard's proposed draft resolution presented to the BOC and also presented in Chatham Chatlist #4031 by the Democratic chairman, Randy Voller. By Linda Bienvenue
 
Lawrence London owes Shot of Spro an apologyLawrence London owes Shot of Spro an apology
[May 11, 2011] In a recent Chatham Chatlist post Lawrence F. London, Jr. wrote: " Unbelievable that any merchant would knowingly allow gas or diesel engine exhaust fumes to be discharged near their coffee van. This is very inconsiderate of customers enthusiastic of their excellent coffee and unnecessary as they can use any available nearby electrical drop. I wouldn't get within 500 feet of those fumes."
 
Latte respect neededLatte respect needed
[May 9, 2011] Though I understand how some people might fear them, espresso vans play a vital role in our Chatham County ecosystem. They should be allowed to live among us, not banished due to narrow prejudices against creatures that sometimes hum a bit loudly or belch an occasional tiny propane cloud. By Steve Smith
 
Chatham County commissioner meetings are open to public input
[May 2, 2011] Bravo Ms. Fass to your commitment to attend the Chatham Board of Commissioners meetings. You are to be commended for for your dedication to being informed. I also attended the last BOC meeting, and I feel obligated to inform you that there is a procedure to these meetings. By Linda Bienvenue
 
What is going on behind our backs?
[May 1, 2011] After attending the last Chatham County Commissioners' meeting, I decided that I will attend as many as I can, and stand firm in my convictions. All should attend the next meeting, Monday, May 2, 2011, 6pm at the Ag Building in Pittsboro, located behind the gas station that is on the circle. By Lynn Contant Fass
 
School central office cuts need to be made before asking the county taxpayers for more moneySchool central office cuts need to be made before asking the county taxpayers for more money
[Apr. 26, 2011] The Chatham County Board of Education has canceled their meeting for Monday, May 2 with the Board of Commissioners. This was to be the meeting where the school superintendent would present his 2011-2012 budget request. By Daniel Sundberg
 
Need for LEED Certificate means nothing in quest for energy efficiencyNeed for LEED Certificate means nothing in quest for energy efficiency
[Apr. 12, 2011] The Chatham Coalition type liberals have been insisting that we need LEED Certification in order to build energy-efficient buildings. One of them isn't even sure how to spell "Leed Certification", but she knows that you need LEED certification to build money-saving energy efficient buildings? Really? Does she even know what full LEED certification really entails? By Tom West
 
Let's think outside the school boxLet's think outside the school box
[Apr. 6, 2011] I hope everyone urges our Chatham County Board of Education to put in the time researching the longer school day/shorter calendar this summer as an option to the budget concerns that will surely occur again next year By Cali Downs
 
Thanks to the lady at Starbucks for her random act of kindnessThanks to the lady at Starbucks for her random act of kindness
[Apr. 6, 2011] I ordered my coffee and discovered that my Starbucks card had only $1.68 on it, I had no cash, my son had my credit card and that Harris Teeter has no ATM. Embarrassed I stepped away to try to activate a backup card by telephone but since it had been too long, I was told "You have to see your financial institution!" Now what? By Janet Jones-Parker
 
Read the fine print on your propane gas contract
[Mar. 3, 2011] Read the fine print on your contracts with your propane companies and ask many questions when you call. We just had a shock when we called LP Cooper gas to ask for a specific number of gallons to be delivered to our home. By Wendy Dufour
 
Our school superintendent and the real problem at handOur school superintendent and the real problem at hand
[Feb. 24, 2011] Mr. Logan is working very hard to find a way to provide the best educational services he can to more than 7,000 students--with a $2.7 million shortfall. Anyone looking at the graph of Per Pupil Expenditure can see that educating our students in K-8 schools is financially inefficient. It costs over $1,000 more *per student per year* to educate a child in a small K-8 school (such as Bennett and Moncure) as opposed to a K-5 or 6-8 school. By Elizabeth Bonitz
 
Why has Chatham County, under years of liberal control, not invested in our infrastructure?Why has Chatham County, under years of liberal control, not invested in our infrastructure?
[Feb. 23, 2011] Why is it that the liberals support individual “property rights” when it reflects the position of the left, but otherwise is not worthy of consideration? Why do you assume only residential development, and no commercial enterprise? Why has Chatham County, under years of liberal control, not invested in our infrastructure and thereby encouraged property owners and business to develop within our county borders, rather than seek services from Cary through voluntary annexation? By Joe Kingley
 
I do not want Cary or Wake County invading our Chatham County communitiesI do not want Cary or Wake County invading our Chatham County communities
[Feb. 22, 2011] As a citizen of Chatham County, I have been perplexed on replying to Mr. Starkweather's post. I would hope all of us in Chatham County would want the same good things for the county, annexation is not one of them. The law of annexation is an antique that should have been trashed years ago. By Lynn Contant Fass
 
Former Chatham Coalition chairman Jeffrey Starkweather is wrong againFormer Chatham Coalition chairman Jeffrey Starkweather is wrong again
[Feb. 22, 2011] The Chatham Coalition may have disbanded in shame but their tactics continue under Coaltion co-founder Jeffrey Starkweather. The first thing that strikes me about his post in the Chatham Chatlist is how the Chatham Coalition tactic of stripping people of their identities and reducing them to one body of mind continues. It didn't work during the election Jeffrey - it won't work now. By Heather Johnson
