I tried Brownie Lu' s chicken......it was not good at all.  Very poorly cooked and drier than Bob Newhart's sense of humor.

Subject: Joint elected boards to meet January 29

PITTSBORO – On Thursday, January 29, the Chatham Economic Development Corporation (EDC) will host a joint meeting with the Chatham County Board of Commissioners, the town boards of Goldston, Pittsboro, and Siler City, and the Board of Education to discuss effective models of career and technical education.

In September, the University of North Carolina’s Center for International Understanding hosted a Global Leaders to Germany program to provide North Carolina representatives an opportunity to learn first-hand about the German system of supporting manufacturing. The Institute for Emerging Issues sponsored a Chatham County team to attend: Dianne Reid, President of Chatham EDC, Renee Paschal, Assistant County Manager and Dr. Pamela Senegal, Vice President of Economic and Community Development for Central Carolina Community College.

Dianne Reid and Renee Paschal will talk about what they learned from German models of apprenticeships and dual education, and how Chatham County can implement similar strategies in local career and technical education programs.

The public event is at 7 p.m. at Bestfood Cafeteria in Siler City (220 East 11th St.). Guests are invited to arrive at 6 p.m. for a Dutch treat dinner..

For more information, contact the EDC at 919-542-8274.

Subject: A Shout Out for Clair De La Varre

I have to say I am so impressed with the way Pittsboro has progress and grown in the 10 yrs I have been here..I am so thankful for our new addition Clair… Her business involves many levels of personal healing… From the deepest relaxation techniques I have ever experienced and ways of getting in touch with the negativity that has held me back from success and happiness in my personal life and all my relationships… And ways of completely releasing it… 2 visits and I feel a depth of contentment and happiness and confidence I thought was lost. I can’t wait to go back..

Her new office is in the Wellness Center 157 West St. 919-636-2781… Don’t make the mistake I did. I didn’t realize the Wellness Center had moved…. I walked into the woman’s home… She was so kind and sweet about my mistake… I wasn’t the first that week to make that mistake..I hope 2015 is a great year for you all… If you have any questions about my experience just email me… She also does hypnosis for pain relief, weight loss, life traumas..

God’s Helping Hands Food Pantry in Moncure is in need of non-perishable food (such as canned goods, rice, beans) and/or monetary donations. This food pantry has been operating in southeast Chatham County for 15 years and provides food for approximately 65 families. It is associated with the NC Food Bank.

The food pantry is open the second and fourth Saturdays of the month at Liberty Chapel Church’s annex building in Moncure. For more information, call 919-599-8337.

Monetary donations go a long way when shopping at the NC Food Bank, where the food is sold to the food pantry for 18 cents a pound. So, a $10.00 donation will buy 55 pounds of food! 100% of all money donated goes toward purchasing food for the food pantry. Please send monetary donations to God’s Helping Hands Food Pantry, 5097 Old US 1, New Hill, NC 27562. We will gladly send you an in-kind receipt if requested.

Food can be dropped off at the food pantry on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month from 10:30AM-1:30PM or call 919-599-8336 to make other arrangements.

Thank you.

The Swang Brothers play American music from the 50s and 60s, combining a heady mix of traditional country, rockabilly pop and blues.

The band can turn on a dime, playing an all-out rockabilly rave-up one moment, then downshifting into a country ballad the next, followed by a burning instrumental number.

Fruit tree prunng demonstration on February 21

Chatham Journal Newspaper Headlines - Mon, 01/26/2015 - 08:56
North Carolina Cooperative Extension will offer a fruit tree pruning demonstration on Saturday February 21 from 10:00 am - noon at Howard's Farm a few miles west of Pittsboro on Hwy 64. Annual training and pruning are needed for fruit trees to develop proper shape and form but many growers are intimidated by pruning and neglect this important task. Properly trained and pruned trees will yield high-quality fruit much sooner and live significantly longer. Dr. Mike Parker, North Carolina State University Fruit Tree Specialist, will demonstrate proper pruning techniques for apple and peach trees.
