xx Gas shortage
September 17, 2016, 07:26:49 PM by Jeff G
Any of you fellers and gals noticing the gas shortage here in Chatham County due to the gasoline pipeline bursting in Alabama? There are a couple of stations, that I'm aware of, in Siler that are out this evening. Yesterday, Murphy's ran dry and gas was $1.87, I think it is already up to $2.07 and wouldn't doubt it going far higher in the next few days before the pipeline is scheduled to start up again perhaps next Wednesday or Thursday.

xx Mailbox heavily vandalized last night
September 05, 2016, 03:10:44 PM by chathamgardener
We live on Manns Chapel Road. Last week, spouse replaced old, falling-apart mailbox with brand new one. Last night, person/persons unknown methodically and repeatedly bashed in the new box with what may have been a green or blue baseball bat. Our house is set back far from the road, so we heard nothing. This was not a drive-by-lean-out-the window hit. It appears someone stood beside our box and hammered it over and over with a bat.

Here's hoping the perpetrators' aggressive instincts do not worsen.

xx R5 Zoning Question, is the Land Now Worthless
August 22, 2016, 09:25:13 AM by Silk_Hope
If someone owns 3 Acres of land in an R5 district and has owned the land for years, handed down to them from their parents from an original 7 acre plot can they build on it or is their land now useless?

In the past a plot of land in the watershed had to be 5 acres to build on UNLESS the land was divided out to a family member than it could be built on, I believe it had to be 2 acres (I may be wrong, might have been 3 acres). Anyway, my home is on 3 acres in a now R5 but an in-laws property is also 3 acres in the R5 but not built on, yet and it may never be. Is it now worth anything to them or are the regulations grandfathering such properties in?
