Subject: Business Introduction: Collins Mountain Grading
I am Mike Resnik, and I write to introduce my business, Collins Mountain Grading. But first I want to thank Gene for the Chatlist and for providing small businesses this opportunity. I also want to thank my friends and customers for voting Collins Mountain Grading Chatham’s Best in every Chatlist survey.
Collins Mountain Grading specializes in small jobs usually taking less than a day or two. We have worked with home owners, farmers, contractors and property owner associations. Much of our work consists in grading, repairing and graveling driveways and subdivision roads as well as solving drainage problems and installing French drains.
Although driveways have been our mainstay, our work has included a great variety of tasks: moving large rocks and boulders, spreading dirt, mulch, and gravel, digging footings and basements, digging and renovating small ponds, clearing and grading for building sites and gardens, constructing riding arenas, and doing the “final grading” for buildings under construction.
In addition to myself the business employs a very able and hard working assistant, Ken Withers. He does most of the hand work–chainsawing, shoveling, raking, placing rip-rap, etc. Sometime we collaborate with other grading contractors with bigger equipment. (We carry workers compensation insurance as well as general liability insurance.)
We usually bring just one machine to a job. One our machines is a medium sized skid steer with wheels and over the tire steel tracks; the other is a CAT 257B with rubber tracks. We generally use the rubber tracked machine for work involving crossing paved areas and lawns. Both machines weight about 7500 lbs. and are powered by 57 horsepower diesel engines. With the tracks, weight and power they can function as small “bulldozers”. The machines have a number of attachments including clam-shell buckets, a forklift, a brush grapple, and a small backhoe for digging ditches.
We also have a farm tractor for grading longer roads and driveways, and finally, a medium sized dump truck for carting brush, logs, and up to 6 tons of dirt or gravel.
More than one customer and professional grader has used the term “amazing” to describe what I can do with our small machines while making less mess than larger ones. On the other hand, when bigger equipment is needed, we rent it or enlist the help of another operator. And for hauling large amounts of gravel, dirt or mulch I turn to contractors with large dump trucks.
For 39 years I was a philosophy professor at UNC-Chapel Hill, specializing in Logic and Philosophy of Mathematics. I retired formally in June of 2006, but still retain some ties with UNC and academic philosophy. My wife, Janet, whose pottery you may know, and I have lived on our farm on Collins Mountain Road in Chatham County since 1967. We have been busy clearing pastures, building barns, studios and rental houses, and raising horses and timber ever since. Janet gave me my first “bobcat” as an anniversary present. I learned to use it on our farm by clearing pasture land, digging two small ponds, building a three quarter mile road to our children’s house sites, and then clearing and landscaping their lots, excavating their basements. My business was born when our son, Dmitri, suggested that I “stop pushing over OUR trees and go push over somebody else’s.”
I am in this business because I enjoy the challenges it provides. I will dedicate myself to doing a good job. Our equipment is suited for working on a small scale and can get into most backyards. Our rates are very reasonable: you can probably hire us for an afternoon for not much more than you can rent anything like our equipment, and get more done due to our experience. Finally, although my business keeps growing, I am still available. I can promise you that if you call or email me, I will respond quickly. If you decide to use me, I will be able to turn to your job within weeks rather than months–often within days. For example, a couple of years ago a builder called me on a Friday about digging a basement for an addition to an existing house. He needed the work done ASAP. I was able to look at the job that day, line up a friend with a backhoe, and commit to doing the job the following Monday. We were able to complete the job that Monday and to charge the contractor less than his other estimates. Perhaps, this why Collins Mountain Grading has been voted Chatham’s Best in all the Chatlist surveys.
I haven’t done this previously, but in these times it may be appropriate to say something about prices. We charge $65 per hour. This pays for one machine, me and my helper. We also charge an equipment moving fee, which varies with the time and distance we have to travel (usually $40-$60). Of course, there is often a charge for materials: gravel, dirt, pipes, etc., and dumping fees involved in disposing of debris (if you want this). We can usually grade and cover a 250′ driveway with 18 tons of gravel for around $650. Often grading is enough to fix up a driveway without having to add the extra expense of gravel.

So tell us your thoughts on women showing their legs above the ankle with those disgusting “miniskirts” and “shorts”, or women
wearing trousers at all. Or those two-piece bathing suits? Positively Scandalous.
And now, tell us all what form of personal expression is NOT “disgusting”?
What forms of expression may we use that has your seal of approval? What about those patchouli smelling hippies who show up at Shakori Hills?
Patchouli is not a substitution for bathing, or am I making a sweeping, bigoted generalization there? Tye Dye? they Must be a bunch of ‘shroom eatin’ pot-heads, right?
Tattooing and Piercing of various forms has been a part of human culture almost as long as there has been human culture. And your comment on piercings being a “sad effort for an individual to be noticed” could and was also said about the aforementioned bikini, trousers and shorter than ankle length skirts.
And as someone who has seen far more than his fair share of corpses in all states of decomp, I can attest that NO ONE makes and attractive corpse…
and I can also tell you that the odds are about 50/50 that you’ll die in an embarrassingly awkward position, in your underwear or naked. Very few people die in a position of peaceful repose, fully clothed, hair coiffed and makeup just so.document.getElementById("post-14389-blankimage").onload();

Subject: assisted living care information
I really do appreciate all who read this and all who respond. I am at a point I need some advice and some information . My mama is a brittle 67 year old diabetic . She can be very docile or very violent depending on her mood and sugar levels .My oldest son doesn’t come home to avoid her all together . She shoved him through a six foot tall mirror his senior year in a rage then wondered why he didn’t want anything to do with her the next day . She has times where she mixes up memories and confuses the past but believes its real . If you question her on it she will get very upset . I have been hit a number of times , my kids have been pushed and shoved around and I’m at a point I cant care for her anymore . I do not know what to do . I have run in circles making phone calls and trying to get help just to be told to do this or that ,, then I do what I was told , then I’m told we cant help you . Mama has Medicaid and Medicare and for some reason that has stopped me from getting much help at all . She has fallen asleep with the stove on several times , she has literally blacked out and fallen and there are times she functions almost perfectly normal for a while . She has a lot of meds that she takes not as prescribed but as she feels like she needs them . She wont let anyone have
anything to do with her meds and even though she has been pushed by her doctor into therapy she has refused . She has refused three psychological exams in the last year .
I cant do this anymore .. I have a LCSW working with us who recommends she be somewhere she can be monitored and the
rest of us can have some peace . With all of this said .. I really need some advice and help . I cant cook in the house anymore , we literally live in the shop and stay outside as much as possible . I walk on pins and needles every day and I’m afraid of what will happen next . If anyone here has had to go through this with a parent please talk to me . I have no idea what to do or where to start to do it . I thank you for your time and I hope and pray none of you have to go through this with a parent.

Subject: Growing large Elephant Ears (Esculenta/Caladium)
The secret and even sometimes this does not work- Water, Water, Water and manure. Pliable soil, and medium to average shade. Last June I bought five one gallon containers of black elephant ears. I planted two in my garden, (hard clay soil) and left one in the original pot. The remaining two, I planted in a garden I designed and planted for a friend. He had just started the garden from scratch and bought soil mixture from Poultry Villa, Pittsboro. It contained chicken manure.
My black elephant ears in the soil did not produce very big leaves. The one in the original pot had leaves just as large as those planted in the ground, but nothing to brag about. The two I planted in my friend’s garden, got huge leaves – at least 2 ft- and dramatically increased from the base, sending up multiple shoots and forming a grand display. I had also planted the common green elephant ears and used plenty of organic fertilizer. They produce fairly large leaves.
Elephant ears are only half hardy in my area. (zone 7B) Usually not hardy for me. In Moncure, I understand that Jim Massey leaves his in the ground all winter. And his plants are huge.
Many years ago, in Montgomery County, my Aunt Rosa had an elephant ear that grew at least 9 feet high and had leaves 4 to five feet long. It grew on the South side of a hill, at the base of her back porch. At least two times a day, she threw soapy waste dishwater out- and it always landed on the elephant ear.
Good luck- and keep trying- they are well worth effort.

Subject: Chatham Park Movie
When I saw your post I went ahead and re-watched the Chatham Park Movie from a year ago. I would be interested to hear your take on it.
Here are some of my impressions:
Firstly, the bald eagle saddened me. Bald eagles need habitat to prosper. That includes clean water and a dark night sky. They don’t do well with big night sky glow and polluted water. I suppose they are effective in marketing, but it does not appear they are included in the current Chatham Park plan.
Secondly, to have Jordan Lake included as “an amenity” to a developer’s plan strikes me as hubris.
Thirdly, the message from this year old movie is “everything is ready to go.” I suppose everything but zoning, annexation and a green light from our elected representatives. Everything is ready to go except the people whose lives will be impacted by this project.
I noted Catherine Deininger’s comments with interest. I am a fan of hers. It seems to me her thoughts were recorded before she saw the current plan. She was on camera back when Toll Brothers owned a big swath of Chatham Park, before they abandoned ship and failed to deliver the bond that was promised to Pittsboro. Back then Preston looked like a better partner.
That was before there were hundreds of citizens opposing the project.
In the movie they cite Pittsboro’s vibrant downtown. That doesn’t appear to be in the plan.
They say they love to “do things right.” What does that mean? Tell me it does not mean “downtown Cary.”
It strikes me that this development is chocked full of 1950′s thinking.
Rather than building a carbon negative community with an understanding of night skies, ecology, wilderness, water quality, downtown, community–that sort of thing–their movie seems to promote business as usual.
The trees they are using in their marketing piece are all marked for deletion.
Nowadays most communities are not developing on their watersheds. We used to do that. Before we figured out how much it cost to clean water without the help of nature.
I am extremely interested in your take on this subject. I don’t have a helicopter–just an iPhone–but here are some short movies on the topic…

Subject: Maytag Repairmen of Forestry
Less than two decades ago when I was a wildlife biologist, I reported forestry Best Management Practices violations to the Mecklenburg County forester..
When we met to discuss ways to improve the situation, it was clear that he was not a happy man. He explained that only 15% of the county was in woodland, and it was disappearing rapidly. He was not pleased that he was having to ask landowners to improve conditions given pressures to sell out to developers. I understood his concerns.
Now fast-forward to the early 2000s. Mecklenburg County approached my company about completing an inventory of all aquatic species in a 13 county area in North and South Carolina centered on Mecklenburg County. They explained that this was the projected build-out for the Charlotte Metro Area, and they wanted to know more about the resources potentially affected by the oncoming growth. In part, I was reminded of the time spent with the county forester a few years earlier, and now I could envision 13 such foresters within this expanding area.
So, when Al Cook reminds us of woodland’s importance, think deeply about what we have and how rapidly we are losing our beautiful county. Yes, landowner rights, even those belonging to Chatham Park, are important; however, a balance is also essential. That balance is sorely lacking in the presently proposed Chatham Park.

Subject: Forestry in Chatham County
I did not specifically address any issues of forestry practices in my recent rant about Chatham Park. I do have an article on Chatham County forestry in the current issue of Chatham County Line available at local outlets and online at http://chathamcountyline.org/pdfs/CCL.nov13.web.pdf
But I would like to thank Maryphyllis for creating the opening for me to address some issues I couldn’t include in that article. Nearly all of the marketable timber in Chatham County was taken approximately between 1875 and 1925 when the wood products industry moved into and across the southeast U.S. Any tree older than that time frame was left because it was too small, of inferior quality, inaccessible, or otherwise not marketable. (I would be glad for any local historian to fill in or correct details.)
Today, nearly two-thirds of Chatham is covered in trees (63%, 262,000 acres). Largely that is because private landowners who own about 90% of those trees manage them as a crop. The balance in is public land such as that surrounding Jordan Lake. In 2012, timber was worth $8.3 million to Chatham landowners and more than that in jobs for those who move the trees from stump to finished wood products. If that economic incentive was not there, it is legitimate to ask if the landowners would have kept that land in timber and what it might look like otherwise. “Our forests” are mostly private property, and we can thank the landowners for any benefit we derive from them.
Trees are harvested on about a thirty to forty year cycle locally. As those trees grow older, the economic value begins to decrease. For the landowner, that harvest represents an investment that may be applied to putting kids through college, retirement income, or many other options. Meanwhile, the landowners pay property taxes on that land. How much they invest may depend on the potential productivity of the site. Many landowners have a management plan in place that may or may not include recreation and/or wildlife enhancement.
Clear-cutting is ugly and disruptive. Often the landowner (who may live nearby) is as frustrated as anyone else over what they see. But the clear-cut is the most efficient and economically productive means of harvesting the timber. And we have to remember that the timber is there as an investment for the owner.
In an ideal situation professional foresters usually suggest the clear-cut take no more than 50 acres (or less) at one time. In that situation various stands of trees would be harvested at intervals so that the land is maintained in what they call mixed aged stands. The mix of ages means that there are different stages of ecosystems providing habitat for a greater variety of wildlife than if it were all mature forest.
What is usually not obvious is the recovery process between clear-cutting and reestablishment. Going back to the potential productivity of the site, it may or may not be cost effective to replant. If replanting is not expected, then seed trees are left for natural seeding and regeneration leading to the next timber crop. Even if year old seedlings are hand planted, it may not be obvious to the casual observer. And herbaceous plants such as ragweed and dogfennel may be the most obvious plants for a few years. This type of growth provides good habitat for songbirds, rabbit, fox, and even deer. In fact it is the kind of place you’re likely to see a hunter place a deer stand.
As I suggested, clear-cutting is ugly and disruptive from a human perspective. But without it, I am not certain that we would have 63% of the county covered in trees today. If we appreciate that aspect of the county, perhaps we should find a landowner who manages timber and express our appreciation.

Wellness of Chatham will be hosting its next meeting on Wednesday, November 20th from 6:30 – 8pm at The Joyful Jewel, 44-A Hillsborough Street, Pittsboro. Our speaker will be Suz Robinson, and she will be presenting the talk, Moving Beyond Fear Into Our Authentic Hearts.
In this heart-centered talk, Suz will discuss the fact there are many kinds of fears that can occur in oneÂ’’s lifetime, and that these fears can mask our authentic heart. The secret is in sitting with all fears whenever they arise and learning to let them go. While the same fears may reoccur, each occurrence is easier than the previous time, with additional insights learned when weÂ’re willing to sit still, observe our fears, accept them and move on. One of the key considerations being discussed will be the practice of learning to build awareness. Suz Robinson is an ordained inter-spiritual minister and a woman who loves life and lives each day to the fullest.
Living in her own Heart Space has been a recent transformation for Suz that began about 2 years ago. As she describes, since learning how to make choices, and perform actions from this space, she has never been healthier or happier. She believes that the reason each and every one of us is here is to step into our own, authentic POWER and become awakened to our love potential that allows us to co-create healing around and within us.

Subject: soil sample analysis fees begin november 27, 2013
The Chatham County Cooperative Extension office would like to make all of our homeowners, producers, and community clientele aware of legislation that may be pertinent to many of them.
With passage of SESSION LAW 2013-360 SENATE BILL 402, the North Carolina legislature has imposed a $4 fee for all soil samples processed by the NCDA&CS Agronomic Division during its busiest season of December through March. Currently, soil sample analysis is provided at no direct cost to North Carolina residents.
This year, December 1st falls on a Sunday and is preceded by the Thanksgiving holiday. As a result, soil samples will be received in the Chatham office for free analysis until Friday, November 22nd, 2013; this deadline will ensure prompt delivery to Raleigh before the Thanksgiving holiday. Please note that a fee will be imposed on samples after November 27th, 2013 until April 1st, 2014. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Mark’s deep, heavy, rhythmic sound and style has blossomed and is reminiscent of early jazz and blues masters, but also has elements of country, R&B, Gospel, funk, soul, afrobeat and world music and is updated for today’s contemporary, independent rock and jam scene. From the first note the polyrhythmic music gets the crowd moving and the hours-long rhythm takes the audience back and forth through time. After breaking into the music business in the early ’90′s as a drummer and member of Jennyanykind (a rock act on major-label Elektra, see them here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lHrtSRQbCAA&feature=rec-HM-fresh+div), Mark has refined his act over 16 years of performing and recording, and has supported such acts as Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Southern Culture on the Skids, Paul Thorn, Flaming Lips, Afghan Whigs, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and many others..

Friday @ 8:30 PM – *The Outboards*
The Outboards bring their own brand of 60′s inspired rock n’ roll guitar pop to the City Tap stage again this Friday night. The Outboards are the latest project of local frontman Adam Brinson, and when I say local, I ean
right around the block from the Tap! Doesn’t get much more local than that… They’re a tight band with a great sound who always put on a great show, so c’mon out!

Sunday @ 3:00 PM – *Laura Thurston*
Laura brings multi-instrumentalism to a new level! You will be enthralled when you see this lovely lady rappin’ on a suitcase kick drum with one foot and tappin’ on a tambourine with the other; all the while, hands on her guitar and mouth on her harp. On top of that, Laura then adds sweet sugary vocals to her acoustic Folk-Grass mix while giving energy and presence to capture your attention. This talented musician launched her solo career in 2011 performing up and down the east coast. With her original ideas and talented executions this one woman band is sure to dazzle any audience. Laura Thurston has her own unique style from a vintage era that will enliven you and have you feelin’ fine.
