Thought I'd list these things here before going to eBay, to try and keep them in the community. That said, these are old enough to warrant museum space, just about!

If you have questions, PM me and I'll answer as coherently as I can Pictures upon request for now.

I would rather have legal immigrants as neighbors than those who choose to break our laws

Chatham Journal Newspaper Headlines - Fri, 10/17/2014 - 09:44
I appreciate the time and effort Al Cooke put into his recent Chatham Chatlist post. While I empathize with poor Central Americans and their plight, I would rather have legal immigrants as neighbors than those who choose to break our laws

Some of us don't pretend

Chatham Journal Newspaper Headlines - Wed, 10/15/2014 - 09:47
I read a recent Chatham Chatlist post that reminded me why I don't pretend. With that said, this is my opinion, so let's pretend things are different just to paint a rosy picture that goes both ways. Let's pretend voters didn't get so tired of tax increases and other B.S. that they didn't vote in the current board of commissioners. Let's pretend that the silent majority hadn't had enough of their tax dollars being wasted that they voted to remove those who didn't listen to what the majority wanted. Let's pretend one of the last commissioners didn't get thrown in jail. Let's pretend that no one will ever be held responsible for their actions or what they say.

Investing in forests, trees, etc.

Chatham Journal Newspaper Headlines - Wed, 10/15/2014 - 09:33
I am glad John Dykers mentioned the possibility that he might "replant with pines to send great grandchildren to school." The proper management he mentions is an investment as well as long term commitment.
