Also, I’ve change my voter registration. Must remember to write to cancel out my former voting registration in Tattnall County.
There’s a movement to stop a gravel pit. Must acquaint myself with this issue, decide if it is a valid concern and where I need to be on it.
Also, have made a tour of some of the local bars. Time to do coffee houses now.
I know him from work. Having called him back, I extracted a promise from him to just do his best vis a vis the humane care of animals situation in our community. I told him I’m not a one issue voter, but for now that’s on the top of my concerns. We’ll give him a chance to improve on what has so far been a woeful state of affairs.
And if he does well with that, well, we have more work for him, don’t we, folks?
I’ve developed connections with White Pines Community Centre, our municpal welcome centre, the Red Cross, the VFW and American Legion, and MoveOn.org. Now, how to concentrate more in my own community?
I’ve done some groundwork toward getting the neighbourhood watch system reactivated. The next step is, I suppose, to do surveys by mail and phone. Yet we are contemplating moving, selling our house. So what will be my community then?
If I go before I accomplish this, I’ll have to send a series of essays stating ideas and suggestions. It will be a pity that we live this place, but for the children’s sake I think it’s the best thing. If it helps the children to move, I will have been grateful that some of our neighbours pushed us out.
The Chamber of Commerce of Greater Tattnall County. Interesting. I have met some different peoples with a set of common goals in mind, including the betterment of commerce and the development of our county. How will this be accomplished? Aye, there’s the rub!
And the one before that? Was I working, or too tired from work? Oh, this is not helping.
What to do?
I would like to help reduce crime, reduce poverty, improve labor conditions and pay, improve healthcare in my community, and improve education. I’ve contacted the AFL-CIO, and am attending leadership training in my community.
I’ve also contacted these people for help:

This was my daily quote from the Collins Word Exchange:
“at the grassroots (or from the grassroots).”
A political cliché, used when supposedly reflecting the opinions of the
‘rank and file’ and the ‘ordinary voter’ rather than the leadership of
the political parties ‘at national level’. The full phrase is ‘from the
grassroots up’ and has been used to describe anything of a fundamental
nature since circa 1900 and specifically in politics from circa 1912 –
originally in the US. A cliché in the UK since the late 1960s. A BBC
Radio programme From the Grassroots started in 1970. Katherine Moore
writing to Joyce Grenfell in An Invisible Friendship (letter of 13
October 1973): ‘Talking of writing – why have roots now always got to be
grass roots? And what a lot of them seem to be about.’ ‘In spite of
official discouragement and some genuine disquiet at the grassroots in both
parties, 21 such joint administrations have been operating in counties,
districts and boroughs over the past year’ – The Guardian (10 May
1995); ‘The mood of the grassroots party, and much of Westminster too, is
for an end of big government, substantial cuts in taxation, cuts in
public spending, toughness on crime, immigration and social?security
spending, and as little Europe as possible’ – The Guardian (10 May 1995).
