    In Orange and Guilford counties, neighbors fight landfill expansions
      North Carolina has not learned from the past. Your trash is part of the 9 million tons of garbage North Carolina generated last year, and much of it went into landfills in low-income neighborhoods.

  • Police could lose funds to jail undocumented immigrants

      In 2010, 54 N.C. law enforcement agencies received $7.6 million in SCAAP funding; that money would all but evaporate, and local tax dollars would have to pay for incarcerating undocumented immigrants.
  • Chatham commissioners rescind 2009 ICE resolution

      The 2009 resolution acknowledged that undocumented immigrants live in and contribute to their communities, and asked that local law enforcement decline to enter into agreements with ICE to enforce federal immigration laws.

Re: “Sludge in the Triangle & what you can do

Hello, K. Mitchell.
You ask an important question.
I do not have a ready answer for you, and many surrounding counties have expressed your concerns. What I can suggest is that you begin attending your Board of Commissioners Meetings and speak during the public comment period. Ask your commissioners to consider a resolution that requires notification of property owners prior to sludge spreading on fields adjacent to their property. Tomorrow, Jan. 18th, the BoC are meeting:…
Contact your county's Environmental Health Committee board members and find out what resources are available to you.
Good luck!

Re: “Abortion protesters target Enloe High School

Dear Mrs. Richardson and ABC,

It was important to include that percentage and "well-received" claim amongst other dubious statements by Mrs. Olson and the protesters to demonstrate their lugubrious reality.
Their use of stereotypes, and exaggerated percentages only questions their credibility, not the credibility of the students.

Re: “Chatham Commissioners get extra time to chime in on U.S. 64


Just to clarify, there are FIVE intersections that will receive either a diamond or cloverleaf interchange that will eat up acreage already owned by residents, businesses and at least one developments --- limited access means these roads would require a side-street to reach U.S. 64. Currently, the following roads feed right into U.S. 64:

751/New Hill Road,

Farrington Road/Beaver Creek Road,

Big Woods Road/Seaforth Road,

Mt Gilead Church Road/Pea Ridge Road

Re: “Urban Outfitters' misguided "Eat Less" campaign


Pollan's slogan is not advocating starvation, but mindfulness about the food's we consume. His statement begins with "Eat food" which is very different from simply stating "Eat Less."
It is one thing to encourage sound nutrition, holistic health, and mindfulness about what we eat, but to send out a single message that says do not eat is irresponsible and damaging - as the women in the article pointed out - you can't sugar-coat the fact that eating IS living, and NOT eating is dying.
Pollan also says: "Eat deliberately, with other people whenever possible, and always with pleasure."

Re: “Chatham County lackluster turnout for conservative change

1st, I do stand behind my statements. 2nd, my name is Rebekah, not Bekah. 3rd, as a mother of a 3 year old, grazing means you refuel when you can, even when you can't sit down for a meal. Be it yogurt, protein bar, or nuts - you graze to keep your energy levels up, my daughter does it, and I do too when I have to attend meetings that disrupt meals.

Re: “Chatham County lackluster turnout for conservative change

The first commenter stated: "You fit right in with the coalition," without specifying who "the coalition" was.
For the record I have never participated in or covered any Chatham Coalition meetings. I am aware of the former Chatham Coalition from specific issues research.
