local campaigning

Today I picked up the fliers for Kings Mill precinct from Orange County Democrats to pass out (on the front porch, socially distancing, no knocking on doors) with a sample ballot, directions how how to vote early or absentee and ways to get economic help from the county if you need it. One person told me she already mailed in her ballot. Nov. 3 will be here soon.

opening plans CHCCS

Here is the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools’ plan for school reopening Note the first week 1/4 of High School kids attend each day and then they do online learning for the first part of the semester. Middle and Kindergarteners do a hybrid schedule.

Read the article on the News & Observer's website.


school closed rest of year

So CHCCS schools will not reopen May 15. Online teaching will continue. Of course, students will not learn as much. I hope the libraries open soon for kids use.


Shelter in Place

I see Orange County plans a Shelter in Place statement starting Friday 6PM. Anyone have the details? Our neighborhood (Kings Mill Morgan Creek) has created a daily Zoom noon on line get together. Anyone else?


Is anyone interested still in reading or posting on Orange Politics? My substitute jobs have been all cancelled. I think there is a special law that prevents me from collecting unemployment insurance. (Not that I would apply for it since I don't need it.). I have been up in Ohio attending to family business. The big news was the Ohio primary was postponed even though a judge denied the governor request to postpone but the state health official ordered the primary stopped. While driving I saw just a few Trump signs (but none for Biden nor Sanders). Lots of signs for local offices and bond issues which have entered uncertain times. The Civil War monuments are still visible as are a couple confed flags in folks yards. All beauty salons and barbershops are closed and the Big 3 autoplants have closed.
