Commissioner Lucier made the right decision nor to attend the public forumCommissioner Lucier made the right decision nor to attend the public forum
[Mar. 1, 2009] No public official should submit themselves to lynching meetings manipulated by outside hate groups. I read the flyers being secretly distributed in Silk Hope, and I've been to the websites of Ali-PAC and the other organizations with a lot of bad-mouth and almost no members, and I've read the national reports about these groups. By Gary Phillips
Development around Chatham is what is moving more deer into the county.
[Mar. 1, 2009] Deer are part of the ticks' ability to move about but so are the raccoons, the o'possums, the foxes, coyotes, squirrels, dogs, cats, and the myriad of other animals in our woods. Are we to also do something about cutting their population? By Sherri Oakley
Deer overpopulation is a major contributor to the spread of tick-borne diseases
[Mar. 1, 2009] My greater concerns and interest lie in the issue of deer overpopulation. I read up on the issue and talk about it most anytime the subject relates to landscapes (can’t help myself). Deer overpopulation is a major contributor to the spread of ticks and tick-borne diseases, as well a major spreader of microstegium (bamboograss). Deer are devastating our natural areas and ornamental landscapes. By Matthew Arnsberger
Problems with the Domino's in PittsboroProblems with the Domino's in Pittsboro
[Feb. 26, 2009] Wondered if anybody had tried to use a gift card at the Pittsboro store? Mine wouldn't work. They said they have trouble with them. Also said maybe it hadn't been activated (I checked and it was properly activated). So why don't they get it fixed? By Pat Weisbrodt
Resistance against Chatham tax revaluations is futile
[Feb. 25, 2009] I was concerned when I got my tax reevaluation so I made a phone call. I recognized the lady on the phone and realized she must have had a number of people bitching at her to be as hateful as she sounded on the phone. By Mark Stinson
Commissioner George Lucier cries "wolf" about alleged threatsCommissioner George Lucier cries "wolf" about alleged threats
[Feb. 25, 2009] A story appeared on WRAL TV. The original headline was "Chatham officials threatened over immigration stance". It was changed the day after it initially appeared to "Possible threats against Chatham officials investigated" By Howard Clarke
Do not take the plague of tick-borne diseases lightlyDo not take the plague of tick-borne diseases lightly
[Feb. 24, 2009] I had Lyme's disease recently and found it to be one of the most pernicious and difficult experiences of my life. At first it was a flu, then it was a slow degradation of my energy level and I just thought I was getting slow, old a little over done. Next I felt sleepy all the time and there was a fog around my mind, almost like you had just woken up all the time, then the shakes and finally after all this time, I knew something was wrong. By Simon Lobdell
Chatham's 2009 tax assessments are unrealistically high
[Feb. 24, 2009] Here's what I'm sending to the tax office. Just how bad can things get? By Tom Winecoff
Chatham County Commissioners are off their rockers
[Feb. 13, 2009] I am disappointed. The very definition of discrimination is to apply different standards to people based on irrelevant factors such as their race, ethnicity, gender, etc. If we have laws, those laws ought to apply to everyone, without exception. By Brenda Denzler
Liquor by the drink confusion
[Feb. 3, 2009] What boggles me about the Liquor by the drink debate (cleverly placed as a "special" election with low turn out), is that the folks who are crying "we don't want strip malls in Chatham and big box stores! Support local businesses! Slow Growth! (Really no growth) By Heather Johnson
My two cents, for what it's worthMy two cents, for what it's worth
[Feb. 1, 2009] For those of you who are unfamiliar with the western part of the county, we are steadily losing our industries. Our chicken plants have or are closing, Moore's Machine Shop relocated to Lee County, our textile plants have left, and the list goes on. These industries provided a steady revenue to Chatham County that we can no longer depend upon. By Rita Marley-McKenzie
Help others by recycling your prescription drugs
[Nov. 12, 2008] 2008 has been a horrible year for the Cooper family, but we learned some very valuable lessons. I want to share one of those lessons with the chatlisters. By Linda Cooper
Hogan supports Galin and Munn for Chatham School Board
[Oct. 15, 2008] In the school board non-partisan race, it seems to me that we have four very qualified and dedicated people, but I disagree with the Coalition's endorsements. I believe Gene Galin will be an excellent member of BoE. He knows Chatham well and obviously cares about improving both our general quality of life as well as our schools and our children's education or he wouldn't have dedicated 10 years of free time to the chatlist, the Bulletin Board, and the Chatham Journal. By Judy Hogan
Chatham has an exceptional citizen in Mark Stinson
[Oct. 3, 2008] First, let me introduce myself. Though I no longer reside in Chatham County, I was raised in Pittsboro and educated in the schools of Chatham County. The statistical methods used in the analysis of Mark's four (per his mother in a Chatlist post) lightening strikes were learned from Mrs Ethyl Johnston, the best algebra teacher ever to teach in the classrooms of Chatham County, or anywhere else. By Henry Blair Jr.
New Pittsboro McDonald's opens without earth shattering consequences
[Sep. 13, 2008] If you're reading this, then two events of earth shattering and life ending proportions have come to pass with nary a hair lost in their wakes of death and destruction. By Jeff Lane
