Flash flood displaced person’s community Potluck fundraiser

An outdoors gathering  in our chill out garden space.

The coming Saturday Weavers Community Housing Association invites you to an informal chill out community POTLUCK fundraiser. In support of raising funds to support local communities affected by recent flash floods and displacement. Money will support financial assistance for local communities in achieving secured housing.  

Feel free to bring a dish, some drinks (alcohol & non alcohol welcome) recyclable cups or plates, snacks- games, fruit, poetry, musical instruments, games, hula hoops. Sit back and chill and meet fellow coopers, community members or join in some music, poetry, what ever you want to do. You do not necessary have to bring a dish for this, but certainly donations of money welcome either way, as we want to raise money here! Spicy vegan Daal will be available plus more. 

As we are limited to indoor space- We will gather outside (Weather permitting) At 6pm to whenever…

There will be a Butterfly donation box made by our very own Grannie for Justice.

Weather permitting—we may make a fire as it gets dark- or head to a local bar..

Cedar encourages visitors of any age, background, abilities, sexuality, or political affiliation, we only ask that you respect the grounds, do not carry weapons of mass or minor destruction and participate or listen in peaceful and respectful dialogue- and with respect for the environment, gardens,neighbors, animals, flowers and plants around us. Compost, recycle and gain karma points in your next life! And no drugs please.But we love  big cuddly hugs. 

Car spaces are limited, therefore we urge you to park elsewhere and walk, or cycle or hopscotch.. to our place. We are 5 minutes walk from Harris Teeter..car park.

Duke Energy Rate Hike Public Hearing

Via NCWARN:

N.C. Utilities Commission public hearing on the rate hike requested by Duke Energy.

Duke Energy is rigging rates to force you to pay for climate-wrecking power plants we don't even need. The company creates demand for electricity by attracting data centers and other large users to North Carolina by offering dirt-cheap rates. The cost of building these new power plants is shifted onto smaller customers. Residential rates will increase an average of 13.9% if Duke gets its way, and rates for small to medium-sized businesses will go up as much as 10.7%.

Date: 

Tuesday, July 2, 2013 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Location: 

Orange County Courthouse, 106 E. Margaret Lane, Hillsborough

Orange County to Discuss Strategic Library Plan Tuesday Night

At 7:00 pm on Tuesday night, at the Southern Orange Human Services center at 2501 Homestead Rd in Chapel Hill, the Orange County Comissioners will discuss the Orange County Public Library Draft Strategic Plan for 2013 - 2016.  The draft plan can be found in the Work Session agenda (PDF) on the county website. 

The last time the library was discussed at the BOCC, the county staff suggested that the plan, which is being written up by Dr. Anthony Chow, an assistant professor in the Department of Library Science at UNC-Greensboro, would be critical to informing the site selection of the Southern Branch of the Orange County Library.  The plan begins on page 29 of the PDF after Dr. Chow's Curriculum Vitae.

Appendix A provides a link to a Library Needs Assessment with a completion date of January 2, 2013, which seems to be much more substantive, containing significant amounts of qualitative and quantitative data.
