Seasoned Logs for Firewood Available

Free Classifieds - Wed, 04/23/2014 - 19:53
I have a pile of seasoned hardwood logs (cut in 2011/2012) that I'd like removed.  If you have the ability to remove them, and are willing to help me move 5 trees I recently cut down, you can have all the seasoned logs and new ones, too (assuming you want the unseasoned logs).

Thanks,
Billy

Hi folks,

Just following up on Cathy’s shout-out to all those who helped her find a new doctor.

I would like to make a shout-out of my own to Cathy for her excellent, wonderful yoga classes.

I’ve been going for 14 years and if I miss a class, you know I’ve been having a bad week!

Like she says, yoga really is balancing for your mind and soul as well as your body, and she makes her classes welcoming and fun, and instills a positive sense of community for everyone there.

You always leave feeling better than when you came in – highly recommended.

Namaste, y’all,
Leda Hartman

Very simple reason a person would not use a muffler or silencer

Subject: Very simple reason a person would not use a muffler or silencer

Maryphillis,

I edited your original post for brevity purposes.  I do not mean to detract from the rest of your missive.

There is a very simple reason a person would not use a muffler or silencer while target shooting at a range.  They only recently became legal in North Carolina to own one (late 2013) and only for hunting purposes.  To obtain one, you must first get the approval of the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, pass a federal background check, pay a federal tax payment of $200, which would then allow you to apply to the county sheriff for permission to own one.  Then you have to find a vendor willing to sell you one.  As near as I can find, the federal law only allows their use in hunting, not range shooting.

It is more difficult to get a permit to use a silencer than it is to get a concealed carried weapons permit.

I don’t yet know anything about the gun range going in near the Goat House cat refuge.   I am hopeful that it is being constructed in such a way to block most of the sound that would travel toward any of their neighbors.  My wife and I lived very close to a sheriff’s outdoor practice range in Florida and after some changes they made the only time the house was disturbing was when they detonated old explosives there.  The gun shots were quite subdued.  I am also hopeful that the range operators will allow the general public to make use of the range, perhaps on a membership basis.

My source of legal information about the silencer laws:
http://www.newsobserver.com/2013/08/02/3070508/gun-suppressors-are-now-legal.html
http://www.guntrustlawyer.com/2013/08/suppressors-and-hunting-in-nc.html
http://www.ncgunblog.com/2013/03/05/someones-not-paying-attention-on-the-nc-silencer-hunting-bill/

The use of a silencer isn’t a win-win in this case.  I don’t think it’s legal, as strange as that may sound.

S4S hosts Earth Day at CCCC-Chatham

By Katherine E. McDonald

Media & Marketing Writer

Central Carolina Community College

PITTSBORO – The Students For Sustainability Club (S4S) at Central Carolina Community College hosts a fun and educational Earth Day from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 22, at the college’s Chatham County Campus, 764 West St. Pittsboro.

The free, family-friendly event includes exhibits, demonstrations, presentations, children’s activities, and entertainment. Its purpose is to encourage and assist people in understanding the importance of and gaining skills to live sustainably.

Learn about green building and weatherization to reduce your home’s energy usage. Participate in making compressed earth bricks and building a wall with them. Learn about composting, reuse and recycling, DIY household cleaning products, and how to create a carbon action plan.

Sustainability students are building a 512-square-foot green Chatham Cottage that will be open to visitors. The house has been dubbed the “Coffee Cake Cottage” in honor of Marianne Lewis. Every Friday, she brings freshly baked coffee cake and organic fair trade coffee to the builders from her family restaurant, Chef Warren’s, in Southern Pines. More information and photos of the construction process are available at www.cccc.edu/thechathamcottage .

The S4S members are also participating in a project to sponsor a community garden in Africa. The project culminates on Earth Day, with a “10,000 African Gardens” Auction. The financial goal is $1,234 or more. All proceeds will be donated to the Slow Food Organization. The SFO is working to create 10,000 food gardens in Africa to ensure that schools and villages have a supply of fresh, healthy food, as well as to train leaders.

“This project encompasses many of the issues we study and offers a wholesome and responsible solution,” said Rosemary Best, an S4S member who is earning a degree in Sustainability Technologies. “Of all the energy efficient, food choice, consumption habit, and environmental impact changes we may make in our daily lives here in the United States, I don’t see how any of them can directly affect the level of hunger a child or community in Africa feels quite like sponsoring a garden can. This project shines with all the facets of sustainability from local advocacy to global interaction.”

The Students For Sustainability Club is accepting donations of goods and services to be auctioned online for the gardens project. Monetary donations are also welcomed and encouraged. Among the items currently on the auction table are local goods and services, restaurant gift certificates, artwork, and biofuels.

To make a donation, contact Laura Lauffer, CCCC Sustainability coordinator and S4S Club advisor, at llauffer@cccc.edu or visit the Students for Sustainability African Garden charity auction website at http://s4safricangarden.eflea.ca. The online auction site is open and the close of bidding will coincide with CCCC’s Earth Day celebration. Checks should be made out to “CCCC Foundation,” with “S4S” written in the memo area so that the funds are earmarked for the club.
