Bynum, NC – Every Friday night from May to August, people come to the former cotton mill town in Chatham County, NC. Folks visit and talk as the crowd gathers. Food trucks are there – Barney’s Hot Dogs and Little Dipper’s Italian Ice. Allen and Son’s BBQ is just up the road. Sometimes goodies from a non-profit bake sale.

Bynum Front Porch LogoAt 7 pm the music starts. There is an outdoor stage (and an indoor stage in the store if it rains). A different band each week: Tonk, the Bluegrass Experience, Lizzy Ross, the Gospel Jubilators, The Durham Ukulele Orchestra. A pith helmet is passed to pay the band. ($10 suggested.) Young and old dance.

There are art programs for the kids and toys and books and screen doors for kids to learn to bang. No pets or alcohol. Fireflies. Sometimes thunder.

Summer nights – listening to the clear voices and sweet songs melding with the cacophony from crickets, owls, tree frogs and toads. Not being able to tell if the white lights are fireflies or Christmas lights. 3/4 time. Not worrying. Not rushing. Just being. As twilight descends.

Come rock with us.

Pittsboro, NC – CBRE|Raleigh has announced the sale of The Retreat at Haw River, a 646.69 acre master-planned residential community in Pittsboro, NC. The property sold on June 10 for $4,200,000 to Flying Crown Ranch LLC.

Retreat at Haw River

Cary real estate investor Tim Smith is a partner in the Preston Development company that is developing the 7,200-acre Chatham Park. He formed the new limited liability corporation, Flying Crown Ranch, and purchased the undeveloped land along the Haw River across from Chatham Park. Smith claims the Retreat at Haw River land deal is separate from his holdings with Preston.

The Retreat at Haw River is an approved 395-lot single family residential development located off Bynum Ridge Road in Pittsboro. The site includes over 10,500 linear feet of walking trails and over 427 acres of open space, with a community pond, garden and amenity center. Located along the Haw River, the property offers aesthetically pleasing riverfront views with convenient access to Chatham Park, Fearrington Village, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Jordan Lake and the overall Triangle region.

The sale consists of four parcels totaling +/- 646.69 Acres. It is currently zoned R-1 & R-5. The site plan approved is based on Conservation Subdivisions Alternate Standards for Development, which allows the development density to be increased by ten percent as long as the minimum of forty percent of the area can be retained as conservation space. Of the retained conservation space, a minimum of eighty percent must be natural space with the remainder open space. Municipal water and private sewer.

The original asking price was listed as $5,950,000.

“Large, entitled, single family deals like this one are becoming very hard to find,” said Chester F. Allen with CBRE|Raleigh. “With all of the explosive growth in Western Wake County, we anticipate seeing more growth in this area of the Triangle.”

Senior Vice President Barry Bowling, Senior Vice President Chester F. Allen and Vice President Carlton Midyette III of CBRE|Raleigh represented the seller, Crescent Communities in the transaction.

Bynum, NC – On Saturday, March 12 treat yourself to an evening of storytelling at the Bynum General Store at 950 Bynum Road. The event will take place between 6:30 pm – 9 pm. Refreshments will be served and the hat passed. The event is family friendly – “the stories most enjoyed by those 8 and above.”

Bynum General Store storytellingSpinning stories Saturday night, March 12 are:

Barbara Lott – A professional storyteller and life-long North Carolinian, Barbara Lott specializes in African American and southern folklore, using both language and ethnically inspired dress to enhance her tales. She also tells true stories of goings-on Chatham County! She brings familiar themes to life with humor and skill. For over 30 years she entertained young and old alike at churches, schools, libraries, rest homes, correctional facilities, arts festivals and celebrations – as well as appearing on television and radio programs.

Ken Corsbie – Ken is from the Caribbean and has a humorous take on America. We do things differently here! Come hear a “old dog” explain with great humor how hard it is to figure out “new tricks! ” Ken was a TV personality, professional storyteller and stand-up comedian all over the Caribbean, in New York and New Jersey. (He has won many awards.) In NC he revels in being Elizabeth’s husband and finally living in a house with a white picket fence.

Louise Omoto Kessel – We are also very happy to welcome Louise Omoto Kessel – a Bynum storyteller and founder of the Haw River Festival. She’s told stories at the Smithsonian, in Alaska and on a sailboat sailing home from Russia! Her stories are from many cultures! Louise and her husband Holmes run the organic Clapping Hand Farm just west of Pittsboro. They have two teenagers – and her dad at home. And. She runs spring break and summer camps at Clapping Hands Farm for kids of all ages.

Jocelyn Marks – enjoys performing stand-up, sketch and Improv. She studied comedy at DSI Comedy Theater in Chapel Hill. She’s also studied with Emmy Award-winning writer John Boni, Kevin McDonald (Kids in the Hall, Saturday Night Live), Cameron Esposito (Chelsea Lately), Kevin Allison (MTV’s The State), Rachel Mason (Second City) and others. She is a proud member of the Bynum Comedy Writers Group. She can be seen doing comedy shows across the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area – NC Comedy Arts Festival, Carrboro Art Center, and frequently in her living room… for Jacie and Daphne… successfully keeping them from watching Frozen twice last week.

Cynthia Raxter – is a storyteller and stand-up comedian. Her stories are true and original. She grew up rambunctious on a dairy farm in the mountains of NC with five sisters and one fiendishly inventive brother. Now she lives in the artist community of Bynum in Chatham County, NC. She enjoys writing, cooking and strolling the banks of the Haw River! And telling stories — all the time.

Bynum General Store storytelling is sponsored by BynumFrontPorch.org – a non-profit benevolent organization which manages the general store as a community center, runs a Friday night music series in the summer, and provides two $1000 scholarships to Chatham County seniors every year. 20% of the show’s proceed go to Bynum Front Porch.

Bynum park desperately needs some law and order appeared first on Chatham Journal Newspaper.

by Karen Dalton

Bynum, NC – I live in Bynum on Bynum Road. My husband and I own a piece of property on the corner of Bynum Road and Bynum Beach Road. Our property adjoins the one acre county park underneath the Bynum pedestrian bridge. We have two rental houses down on riverside. On the whole riverside of Bynum Beach Road there are approximately eight residential homes.

Bynum Beach RoadI am here today because we are in desperate need of some laws and some ordinances to go along with the county park rules that they have kindly put up down there by the water and at the entrance. They have made a sign for us at our property saying “County Property Ends Here, Private Property Begins”. Everyone has been really helpful. The sheriff’s department has been great and so patient. I call them constantly. They come down and try to make a little bit of peace and give us some education about what we can do and we have been have been told to come here. I should have been here years ago.

But what pushed me to come here this very time, at this moment, was the accident on 15-501 last week where two people were killed. We have a major issue down at the county park with drinking, excessive drinking. People are allowed to bring their coolers into the water, hang out all day, and drink until they are drunk. Nine out of ten times there may be a fight before they get back to their cars. They get in their cars, they are drunk, they drive up the hill and they drive out on 15-501. Law enforcement, as I understand, cannot actually do anything unless they are caught driving drunk or there is an accident. I have spoken to the Wildlife people and they can’t do anything if they are drinking in the water unless they are in a vessel. They can drink in the water all day if they are floating.

We are in desperate need of something here to help us with what goes on down there. It is just incredible; this little tiny space creates so many problems.

No parking. No trespassingAnother problem for us is the trespassing. We have had people come that are going to the county property and they take the kayaks out from under our rental houses and take them down to the riverside to use and leave them there. Kayaks have been put out to the front lawn of the little rental house at the base of the pedestrian bridge. I have had my neighbor, Jake, who is rarely home, he had patio furniture out in front of his home so people know that somebody lives there and last summer somebody took his chairs out from the front of his house and brought them down to the county property so they had a place to sit. One chair was left in a ditch and the other was left in the path. It has gotten out of hand.

The county is growing, it is more than we can handle. I have tried for years; I have talked to a bunch of people.

Another issue is the dogs. People come to the property, they go to the park, they want to swim, their doors are open to their cars and their dogs are gone. It is amazing to me how many people don’t call their dogs if they are gone for an hour or two. They come up to my house. Two years ago my husband and I were in the yard; we have a dog pen and we have leashes, my husband and I are in the yard and we hear our Jack Russell screaming. A dog had come up the path and taken her by the neck and shaken her like a ragdoll. If we were not outside she would be dead today. So now our dogs can’t be let loose on our property because of the fact people are just coming onto the property, county land, and it is a free for all. Everything belongs to them, there is nothing private.

I’ve spoken to Michael Yarborough with animal control and Michael said he is just overwhelmed with work and this is not something he can deal with and that I needed to come and speak to the commissioners.

Another issue is parking. We need a few signs down there; there is really no designated place for these people to park off the road. They are parking in the road.

We would really like some laws here and some backup. Everybody has been great, Parks and Recreation, the Sheriff’s Department, total support.

Karen Dalton spoke in the public input portion of the Chatham County commissioners’ meeting on June 15.

2.  For safety, please make sure that children are supervised by an adult at all times.
3.  We respectfully ask that all pets be left at home.
4.  The show goes on, rain or shine.  If it rains, we’ll move indoors.

The Friday Night Music Series runs from May through Labor Day weekend from 7 pm to 9 pm every Friday night.  Although tickets aren’t required, we pass the hat and encourage a $5 to $7 donation to compensate the performers.

To check out the rest of the amazing bands playing this season, please visit our website at bynumfrontporch.org.  Also, find Bynum Front Porch on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.  And visit our sponsors Auto Pro and Hope Crossing Animal Hospital to thank them for their support!

Don’t forget we have the Bynum Front Porch Pickin’ every second and fourth Saturday each month from 10 am to 12 pm.

The Bynum General Store is located at 950 Bynum Road in beautiful downtown Bynum.  We look forward to seeing old friends and new faces Friday night!
