Subject: Birds Missing
I have been wondering the same thing. My birdfeeders are almost untouched. Normally I would have dozens of birds, but there are only a few. This started about 2 months ago for me. I had 8 – 10 goldfinches and a number of other birds feeding and then they disappeared. Before that I have a large group of cardinals and they are all gone too. I have noticed that there are very few birds in the fields around me or on the road sides eating seeds. I wonder if there has been some sort of large scale problem.

I have lived in my house off Hamlets Chapel Rd since 2006. I have
consistently fed the birds and have had a constant supply of all sorts.
BUT, in the past several weeks (maybe a month) I have absolutely NO
birds…not one. I have suet, a seed cake and two bird feeders full of
seeds. They have been full for several weeks….at the times when I would
see most birds (early morning and late evening) there is not one single

Subject: psychotherapy and writing services
Hi, all, and thanks to Gene for the opportunity to do an introduction.
My family moved here from Raleigh 10 years ago and we now embrace Chatham County as our home. I grew up in a small town outside Raleigh and it’s been a pleasure getting to know people in Pittsboro and the entire county.
Until this year my private practice was still Raleigh-based and I primarily served existing clients. In February I opened my doors officially in Pittsboro and am taking new psychotherapy clients for general needs as well as my specialties: PTSD, trauma, depression and other mood disorders, creative issues, and life-stage issues. I work with adults, adolescents, couples, and children.
I bring an eclectic approach to therapy, offering Jungian-based sandplay therapy (for both children and adults), some cognitive-behavioral techniques, and overall a psychodynamic approach. My practice has built over the years mostly by word of mouth: clients referring me to their friends and families. I enjoy working with people and consider it an honor to share their journeys through difficult times.
This year I’ve started two groups: Write To Heal and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction. I’m looking forward to keeping these groups going with new members into the new year.
I also facilitate a free support group for adults dealing with chronic mental health issues. It meets monthly at St. Bart’s Episcopal Church and is a terrific resource that I hope will be utilized by even more people in 2015.
Writing-wise, I offer editing services and coaching for struggling writers. I am a published author and editor and enjoy doing developmental editing to assess and assist with issues including structure, characterization and arc, and voice/tone. I can also take on freelance writing/editing projects depending on my schedule. It has been on my list to offer a couple of writing groups – one for beginning writers and one for more advanced writers. I hope to get to this in the new year.
I invite you to contact me with any questions!
All the very best and happy holidays!

Successful Chatham Senior Games Needs More Participants & Ambassadors
“We are very proud that Chatham County had so many state champions this past year in Senior Games and Silver Arts competition,” said Dennis Streets, e= xecutive director of the Chatham County Council on Aging. Chatham participants earned 43 medals at the state level. A list of state medalists is below.
The Chatham County Council on Aging is the local coordinator for the Senior Games and SilverArts competition.
“We refuse to rest on our laurels,” said Streets. “Our goal is to increase the total number of local participants from 112 to 200 in 2015 and also to add more ambassadors to help us promote the Senior Games and Silver Arts.”
Lindsay Hickling, who coordinates Chatham’s Senior Games, said, “The Senior Games and Silver Arts have been expanded to persons age 50 and better. That means we have over 29,000 eligible participants in Chatham County, or about 44% of our county’s total population. Please come join in the fun, friendship and wellness that come from participation.”
The 2015 Senior Games will take place Friday, April 17, through Friday, May 1, 2015, offering 15 sporting events including tennis, golf, track, swimming, cycling, billiards, bocce, horseshoes, basketball shooting, cornhole, croquet, bowling, fun walk, and football and softball throw.
It also includes a complete package of Silver Arts activities: Heritage Arts (e.g., basket weaving, crocheting, pottery, woodcarving), Literary Arts (e.g., essays, poems), Performing Arts (e.g., comedy/drama, dance, instrumental and vocal), and Visual Arts (e.g., acrylics, oil, photography, sculpture).
The Council on Aging will again partner with many different organizations to offer these varied opportunities, including Chatham County Parks & Recreation, Chatham County Public Health Department, Carolina Meadows, Carolina Preserve, and Galloway Ridge. The Council will also welcome again its growing corps of volunteers who include people of all ages.
As a second goal for this year, Hickling calls for additional volunteer ambassadors to help promote Senior Games and Silver Arts and recruit new participants. “We currently only have one local Ambassador and we want at least four more to cover all parts of Chatham County. Please help us get the word out and let people know how valuable and fun this program is.”
For further information about Senior Games and Silver Arts, check out http://www.ncseniorgames.org/ or call the Council on Aging at 919-542-4512 at the Eastern Chatham Senior Center or 919-742-3975 at the Western Chatham Senior Center.
This program is sanctioned by North Carolina Senior Games, Inc. NCSG is sponsored statewide by the North Carolina Division of Aging and Adult Services.

Subject: Craig Witter, Driveway Repair & More/Review
On the recommendation of several Chatlist folk I called Craig Witter for an estimate to make a new entrance and driveway for my farm.
Talking with Craig on site I understood that he would be good to work with and the driveway design would be thoughtful.
His work ethic and attention to detail is remarkable.
He made what could have been an ordinary strip of gravel into something special. He dug down into the field to remove the grass roots and used that material to form berms that the drive curves around.
Where the drive goes over the stream he made a bridge using a very large, specially shaped pipe with hand-set large stones on the sides.
He was 100% dedicated to the project; really put his heart and soul into the work and it turned out beautifully.
I highly recommend Craig for quality craftsmanship, honesty, work ethic, communication, and timely completion of a project.

Simply Lite Candles
Hi, My name is Gail Boemermann, I am the owner of Simply Lite Candles. I started this business with my husband Bob. We make 100% Natural Soy Wax Candles. The reason we decided to start this business is because I was so tired of buying candles that would not burn correctly, so we decided to give it a try. I have had Soy wax candles before and was very pleased.
Soy Wax comes from Soybeans which is grown by American farmers. It is Biodegradable and Nontoxic. Soy candles burn longer and cleaner that Paraffin wax. We do not use a Soy blend. Our wicks are all natural. The Jar/Containers are all reusable.
We make our candles by hand in our own kitchen, right here in Pittsboro. We have a scent for everyone… Our website is under construction, but will be done shortly. We are at 1st Sunday, and sell at local craft fairs. So come down to 1st Sunday in December and check us out.
Candles make great gifts, wedding and shower favors, as well as just enjoying them yourself.
Thank you for your support!!!
