Chatham County Line articles

Chatham County Line

This is a community newspaper that picks a theme for every issue, and collects contributions based on that theme. From time to time their theme appeals to me, so I submit.

November 2007, Business As Usual About the whiny voice of the business community.

March 2007, Disparate Shades of Green. About the journey toward sustainability which we are all on.

Feburary 2007, Forget the Elephants. About Chatham County’s economic development strategy. This one got me into trouble with our local political machine, and found its way into Small is Possible.

September 2006, Our College Canvas. About the successful sustainable agriculture and biofuels programs at Central Carolina Community College.

July 2006, The Free Hand of the Marketplace. About pricing at Chatham Marketplace and local suppliers.

May 2006, Welfare Fuel. About the high price of fuel at the pump, and the external costs which are not included.

"This is a wonderful, often funny, and inspiring book. Lyle Estill weaves a tapestry of stories of local people and places that, taken together, begin to form the outlines of sustainable, self-reliant communities united by the desire to cooperate for the common good. Small is Possible offers hope and encouragement to those engaged in the difficult but rewarding task of reviving communities that have been devastated by globalization, corporate greed, and apathy. Creating strong, caring, local communities offers one of life's biggest adventures--and opportunities."
