xx Urgent Help Needed -
May 22, 2017, 07:41:24 AM by Ice Pilot2
This was posted on another BBS type thing here in Chatham over the weekend.  If anyone knows something about the sale or transfer of these items, please let the lady know.    Thanks!

"We accidentally donated some things to the PTA Thrift Shop in Cole Park Plaza that have sentimental value! They are no longer at the shop, and the clerk remembers them being sold.

A plastic tub full of quilt blocks (8.5) ready to be pieced together. There is a light blue diagonal strip in the middle of each block, with all kinds of parallel scraps on each side of the blue strip. These scraps are from 50+ years of sewing projects for my family, my version of an heirloom piece!

There was also:
-a purple zippered bag with quilting tools.
-a handmade table top ironing board, square, covered with tan canvas.

If you can possibly help me track these things down, I would really appreciate it! I am certainly willing to buy them back at a heightened price!

xx Silk Hope Randolph Telephone Fiber Meeting 5/15/17
May 15, 2017, 07:36:38 AM by Silk_Hope
Randolph Telephone is holding an interest meeting to run fiber to the Silk Hope area. Many of us in the 336 area of NW Chatham already have access to fiber through RTELCO, it is more expensive than the big players but we have fiber in the country.

The meeting tonight, 5/15/17 is at the Silk Hope Community Center at 7PM for more information call 336-879-5684.

This may be the only chance for Silk Hope area residents to have a fiber infrastructure. Right now fiber is on the Silk Hope Liberty Rd to the Bowden Rd so it is not far away from the Crutchfields area.

xx Chatham News headline. "Increased Funding, Tax Cut highlight budget"
May 09, 2017, 11:30:07 AM by Muddylaces
So I did the math, under the new tax rate and with my new reval you can imagine my surprise that my property taxes are going up.   Which is weird based on the Chatham News headline this week.  Are these County commissioners trying to say they cut taxes?   LOL

xx The Right Side of Chatham & NC 6th congressional district
May 08, 2017, 06:41:27 AM by Brian Bock

Hello fellow fighters for Freedom and Liberty!

The far left has taken over the Democratic Party nationally and locally. They have made the decision that personal property rights, speech they disagree with, and civil discourse will not be tolerated. They encourage and support violence to further their goals. They've brought their ironically named "indivisible" efforts to Chatham County and NC6 with the stated goal of disrupting Congressman Mark Walker's visits to the district and unseat Chatham's lone voice for common sense, Commissioner Walter Petty.

If we wait until 2018 to be informed and energized, it will be too late. Now is the time to get involved. One easy way to be involved is join our new Facebook group The RIGHT side of NC6. We will post the truth and engage in discussion about issues facing our district and nation.
Please share this page with your friends and participate in the discussion. #NC6
