Rock n' Roe @ Cat's Cradle

I'm excited about this event for so many reasons. For more info and to sign up for the march, visit this page I made about the March for Women's Lives.

Local musicians will play Thursday for "Rock 'n' Roe," a concert to benefit the Planned Parenthood of Central North Carolina Action Fund and the 2004 March for Women's Lives.

The concert will take place in Cat's Cradle, 300 E. Main St., Carrboro, and feature performers Glory Fountain, Shannon O'Connor, Regina Hexaphone, Ameliorate, Destroyed by Kittens, and Lise Uyanik and the Mobile City Band. The doors will open at 7 p.m.

The March for Women's Lives, organized by a coalition of national women's organizations, will occur on April 25 in Washington.

Tickets for Thursday's concert cost $10.

MLK Day - Jan. 19

The Chapel Hill Herald reports that our local Martin Luther King Day festivies this year will focus on voting. The timing couldn't be better.

"If all we do is get together and talk big in January, all the work of Dr. King and those of us who worked with him will be in vain," said Fred Battle, the president of the Chapel Hill-Carrboro branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, in a statement. "We must visit our neighbors with registration forms. After they register, we must make sure they know which politicians will do something about our problems -- not just talk big before elections.

"I plan to celebrate Dr. King's birthday twice this year; first in January and again in November on Election Day," he said.

NAACP Candidates Forum 10/9

I just got this in the mail today, the forum is Thursday. I know you candidates are getting run ragged, but at least people want to hear from you! People who are going to vote, and possibly even make endorsements. When I ran four years ago, it was hard to tell if anyone was paying attention at all. Plus campaigning is just as much work as serving on the Council (but without the stipend) so like it or lump it...

Here's the schedule:NAACP Candidates Forum: October 9, 2003, 6 pm
St. Joseph CME Church, 510 W. Rosemary Street

C.L.C. "Musical Chairs Forum" 10/19

(Repost from an e-mail.)

Citizens for Livable Communities (CLC) will hold a "Musical Chairs Forum" on Sunday, October 19, from 2 - 4 pm in the large meeting room at the Chapel Hill Library.

A "musical chairs" format was very successful and fun two years ago. We are doing it again. This format will provide citizens a unique small group opportunity for local residents to ask questions in a non-intimidating setting and for the candidate to explain his or her views. Candidates will visit each table for a stated period of time. Unlike musical chairs there will always be a seat for the candidate.

Please refer questions to Kristina Ahlen, 485- 7722 or Julie McClintock, 541-5339, or reply to this e-mail.

The Citizens for Livable Communities Organizing Committee

CLC promotes livable communities through citizen involvement, dialogue and advocacy.
