The Sewage Sludge Action Network has become involved in helping parents and concerned citizens in Alamance County, North Carolina to halt spraying of sewage sludge adjacent to elementary schools. With reports of higher than normal student illness and absenteeism rates, the practice needs to stop. The City of Burlington and the Alamance County Board of Education have been put on notice having been provided ample scientific evidence to suggest a causal relationship. To not act in protecting children from being exposed to the dangerous chemicals and pathogens contained in sewage sludge constitutes nothing less than willful negligence.
The effort to save public access in Durham began back in September 2008 with the formation of the Durham Committee for Community Media. The committee was created not only to work on saving public access in Durham, but also to create a community media center where the people of Durham could come and learn how to access the media. This vision inspired the community charrette held last October where many great ideas were put forth regarding what a community media center could accomplish. While public access has now been secured for the next one to two years, the work of creating and building a community media center remains. To learn more visit the Durham Committee for Community Media's website at http://durhammediacenter.org and join the mailing list where you will be kept informed of this initiative.
