Concerns with the Goathouse Refuge’s anti-gun range petition

I read in the Chatham Record and now in the Chatlist that Ms. Scarpa is unhappy about what the shooting range that is under construction near the Goathouse Refuge. I would just like to point out a few items in her post. First, the individual purchased the property “adjacent” to the Goathouse property – not attached to it. If it were attached, it would be owned by Ms. Scarpa, and she could do with it what she wants. If the property was for sale, any individual had the right to purchase it, and do whatever he/she wished with it. Perhaps, Ms. Scarpa should have purchased it “for the safety of the animals, cats, dogs, goats.”

From ash pond, to river, to your bloodstream

When you have finished drinking this bottle of water, fill it with our tap water for liquid refreshment that tastes as good and is just as pure as what was in the bottle. That was the message from the City of Wilmington’s proud and professional public utilities department at an event celebrating one of its enlightened water quality improvement projects a few years ago. Their message still hits home with me.

Buncombe Board of Elections allows false registration addresses for 342 voters

In what they call an “invitation for another chaotic election,” the Voter Integrity Project of North Carolina, today asked Buncombe County election officials to curtail the practice of registering voters from addresses that don’t exist.

“It’s baffling that anybody can vote with a false registration address,” said Jay DeLancy, “but that looks like the policy of the Buncombe County Board of Elections. We found 342 voters registered to false address, 77 of them to the fictional address called Zero Tunnel Road.”
