POMOCO NISSAN WELCOMES YOU! Barb Olinger Hampton 29 Years Office Manager

Malcolm McKewn Hampton 15 Years Parts Manager

Kenny Lee Hampton 11 Years Service and Parts Director

Shannon Spangler Hampton 8 Years Finance Director

Bill Price Hampton 28 Years General Sales Manager

Crystal Hogge Hampton 11 Years Internet Sales Manager

Wesley “Tony” Egerton Hampton 13 Years 2013 Salesperson of the Year.

Pomoco Nissan would like to welcome all newcomers to the area. Pomoco Nissan is a member of the Pomoco Auto group, which has been serving Hampton Roads car buyers for nearly 70 years. Pomoco Nissan is the oldest continually owned Nissan dealership between Richmond and North Carolina and is the only winner of Nissan’s highest honor, the coveted Award of Excellence, for 10 years and the Number 1 Nissan dealership on the Peninsula for 13 years. “We realize none of that makes us perfect,” according to Henry Ayer, a Managing Partner with the Pomoco Auto group, “but it sure separates us from the competition.” Newcomers and “locals” can find hundreds of things to do in Hampton Roads and, sooner or later, one of those involves buying a car. Pomoco Nissan has earned a solid reputation built on a “No Gimmicks and No Games” approach to conducting business and it pays off with over 50% of its business being repeat and referral every month. The staff at Pomoco Nissan is always amazed by the number of folks that are back in the store during the week just to stop in for a cup of coffee and just to talk cars, according to finance director Shannon Spangler. “We take a lot of pride in not just selling ‘this’ car, but selling you the next” says 28 year Pomoco veteran, Sales Manager Bill Price. What brings these customers back? Pomoco Nissan’s service department writes nearly 2000 repair orders every month, and that number is steadily increasing, so we have had to make lots of changes in the service department according to service and parts director Kenny Lee. “We have added an additional service team, extended hours, a new car wash, a service expediter and a new quality control process to continue our goal of enhancing the customers experience while at our facility. Our service pricing is very competitive, with prices clearly posted in the write up area, and we are a full line service department with very aggressive pricing on every service you could need. From tires to our value line of brakes, wiper blades and much more, we are here to save you money”. Pomoco Nissan is once again offering a low price guarantee on new cars and currently has all of its vehicles, new and used, priced with “red tag” pricing. Pomoco Nissan will meet or beat any buying service or dealer pricing, and if we can’t we will write you a check for $200 (that offer is good all year), putting their money on the line to make sure you do get the best price. 30 year Pomoco veteran Ayer states “We have the best selection and variety of inventory we’ve been able to offer in years.” Stop by Pomoco Nissan in Hampton and see for yourself the difference a dealer you can trust to be there for you before, during, and after the sale will make.

Thank You To All Who Have Served and Those Still Serving In The Military and their Families

HAMPTON ROADS LIVING

YOU KNOW YOU LIVE IN THE 757 WHEN...

H

ampton Roads is a funny place. Interstate 64 East goes south — and then west. Things aren’t said the way they’re spelled: Gloucester, Norfolk, Portsmouth. A rain-snow mix is enough to throw the area into chaos. There’s a funny email that has circulated around Hampton Roads for the past few years, sort of a take on “You know you’re a redneck if ... .” The joke starts, “You know you live in ‘The 757’ when ... .” After publishing some of them, we heard from someone who says he originated the idea. Ben Kennedy first compiled the jokes with help from his friends on his band’s website several years ago. Shortly after that, he wrote it up with a friend for a cover piece in the Virginian-Pilot. Here are some of those jokes, and others suggested by area readers: You know you live in “The 757” when:

1. You are amazed whenever any city within 50 miles of your house is mentioned in a textbook, national news, etc. 2. You know Mount Trashmore is a real place. 3. Any eastbound trip you’ve ever made involves at least one tunnel. 4. You know every joke that University of Virginia grads tell about Virginia Tech grads. 5. You know every joke that Virginia Tech grads tell about University of Virginia grads, too. 6. You don’t stop and look skyward when military aircraft fly over. 7. You don’t slow down in the tunnel.

Children attending a camp at the Virginia Air & Space Center walk under an F-18 on display on the bottom floor.

13. It’s not Portsmouth; it’s P-town.

15. You’ve seen Pat Robertson in a Farm Fresh. 16. Someone mentions Jon Stewart from “The Daily Show,” and you reply, “Oh, you mean that guy who used to play soccer at William and Mary?” 17. You know that it all started here.

9. You can leave town for years and return to find the same roads still under construction.

18. You know you’ll get five different directions from five different people on how to get to downtown Norfolk.

11. You know Newport News is not the name of a newspaper. 12. It’s not a peninsula; it’s the Peninsula — with a capital P.

29. When everyone in the South says “y’all” and you say “all y’all.

22. You know where Gen. Douglas MacArthur is buried.

30. You know the Power Plant is a shopping center in Hampton, not a facility for the generation of power.

14. It’s Hampton, not the Hamptons.

8. You can say “Norfolk” without sounding obscene or incorrect.

10. An inch of snow closes everything down. Three inches is a blizzard.

Merrimac if the HRBT westbound is backed up.

19. You mark the Bay Days Festival in Hampton on your calendar before the summer even hits. 20. You have experienced all four seasons within a 24-hour period. 21. You know how to get to the Monitor-

23. You remember when Mercury Boulevard had service lanes that were separate from the rest of Mercury.

31. You know all the lyrics to “Switzerland” by The Last Bison.

24. You know that the Great Dismal Swamp isn’t all that dismal.

32. You know your Tappahannock from your Rappahannock.

25. You can tell when a Navy ship comes home by how crowded the stores are.

33. You’re not surprised that George Washington Memorial Highway, J. Clyde Morris Boulevard and Route 17 are all the same road.

26. As a kid, you knew field trips involved traveling to Jamestown, Williamsburg or the Virginia Air & Space Center. 27. You don’t just know Interstate 64 — you also know 264, 664 and for good measure, the Route 164 Western Freeway. 28. You look forward to the Hampton Coliseum putting on its “holiday” lights.

34. You not only know where all the drawbridges are, but you know which ones open horizontally and which ones open vertically. 35. The Civil War and Revolutionary War both passed through your front yard or backyard.

GETTING AROUND

best-kept secret. The connection can add up to seven miles for drivers going from the Peninsula to South Hampton Roads, but it’s usually smoother than the Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel. The alternative isn’t traffic free afternoon drivers need to watch out for the 3:30 p.m. shift change at the Newport News shipyard - but it’s usually the lesser of two evils. Warwick Boulevard is the backbone 4 of Newport News from Fort Eustis to downtown. In addition to dealing with students crossing the street in front of Christopher Newport University, the shipyard shift change tends to increase congestion too. Jefferson Avenue runs parallel to 5 Warwick and is lined with shops and stores of all types. That means weekends are a crowded time on Jefferson, especially on the north end around the Patrick Henry Mall.

ransportation and traffic are perennial topics in Hampton Roads, a region laced with interstates and highways and dependent on a range of water crossings, from bridge-tunnels to drawbridges to ferries. The area also has two airports, rail transport and transit systems that include buses, light rail in Norfolk and ferries.

Roads, bridges and tunnels The Virginia Department of Transportation maintains the region’s highways, bridges and tunnels. To monitor traffic, visit VDOT’s interactive website 511Virginia.org, call 511, or use the free VDOT 511 mobile app, available through app stores. Interstate 64 is the Peninsula’s main traffic vein, and sections clog quickly during morning and afternoon commutes, and in summer when visitors head to vacation destinations. The greatest bottlenecks occur where the interstate narrows just north of the Jefferson Avenue exit, and at the Hampton-Roads Bridge Tunnel. The Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel, known as the HRBT, can be a quick, scenic trip from Hampton to Norfolk, but during commute hours and summer, it can be maddeningly slow. Electronic signs along I-64 alert drivers to delays and backups, suggesting alternate routes. The Monitor-Merrimac Memorial BridgeTunnel, on Interstate 664, can add up to 7 miles to a drive from the Peninsula to South Hampton Roads, but it’s usually smoother than the HRBT. Electronic signs on the interstates provide updates on congestion and travel times. The James River Bridge connects the Peninsula and Isle of Wight County. The 4.5-mile span, a drawbridge, is narrow and often congested. The Coleman Bridge, a toll crossing, connects York and Gloucester counties via Route 17. Northbound drivers must pay $2 to cross the bridge. The bridge has toll booths and EZ Pass transponder lanes. Warwick Boulevard and Jefferson Avenue are the spines of Newport News, separated by train tracks. When I-64 is a mess, they provide alternate north-south routes. Route 17/J. Clyde Morris Boulevard/George Washington Memorial Highway is the commercial and commuter link from Isle of Wight County through Newport News to York and Gloucester counties. Route 460 runs west of the James River and is a nice alternative to Interstate 64 if you’re headed for Richmond and beyond. The Downtown and Midtown tunnels cross the Elizabeth River, connecting Norfolk and Portsmouth, and tolls are charged on both. There are no toll booths. Tolls are collected via

FOLLOW THESE TRAVEL TIPS AND YOU’LL BE ON YOUR WAY TO CONQUERING TRAFFIC BACKUPS

EZ Pass transponder or by invoices mailed to drivers. For more, see the Elizabeth River Crossings website at www.driveert.com.

Airports Two airports serve the region: Newport News-Williamsburg International, just off Jefferson Avenue in Newport News, and Norfolk International, off Norview Avenue in Norfolk. The Newport News airport, with two concourses, is served by US Airways/American Airlines, and Delta, Frontier and Allegiant airlines. Norfolk also has two concourses and is served by Airtran, US Airways/American, Delta, Southwest and United airlines. For more, visit the airport websites at www.flyphf.com and www.norfolkairport.com.

Amtrak Amtrak has stations in Newport News, Norfolk and Williamsburg. The stations are at 9304 Warwick Blvd. in Newport News, 468 N. Boundary St. in Williamsburg and 280 Park Ave. in Norfolk. Routes connect the Peninsula with Richmond, Washington, D.C., New York and Boston. For more information, call 1-800-872-7245, or visit www.amtrak.com or the mobile site, m.amtrak.com. Amtrak also has a free smartphone app available via app stores.

Buses, light rail, ferries Hampton Roads Transit is the regional bus service and includes paratransit service as well. The agency can be reached at 222-6100, www.hrtransit.org, and on Facebook and Twitter. Peninsula fares are $1.50, but rise to $1.75 in fall 2014. The system includes Max express buses from the Peninsula to the South Side cities, with $3 fares and free WiFi. Fares will rise to $3.50. Three passenger ferries operate between Norfolk and Portsmouth, with $1.50 fares, set to rise to $1.75. The Tide light rail system in Norfolk extends 7.4 miles from the Eastern Virginia Medical Center to Newtown Road. Visit the website ridethetide.com. The fare is $1.50, but will rise to $1.75. The free Jamestown-Scotland Ferry connects James City and Surry counties. Call 800823-3779 for details. Greyhound (greyhound.com) has bus terminals in Hampton, Newport News, Norfolk, Suffolk and Williamsburg. Want to know more? Visit dailypress.com/ livinghere.

Help navigating the region The Virginia Department of Transportation offers a smartphone app with updated information about traffic on the state’s interstates and highways. The free app is available through app stores or at www.virginiadot.org/ travel/511.asp#app. The region’s transit system, Hampton Roads Transit, is developing an app and hopes to launch it soon. HRT regularly posts updates on its Facebook page, including alerts about route changes and delays. Both VDOT and HRT use Twitter: HRT is @gohrt and VDOT is @VaDOT. For additional “real-time” traffic information, visit the VDOT www.va511.org website and the Daily Press traffic page, www.dailypress.com/news/ traffic. You can reach the VDOT traffic information center by cellphone or landline by calling 511. VDOT posts traffic advisories on the radio at 1680 AM. For free mobile traffic alerts, text TRAFFIC to 71593. Share your traffic photos and videos with your neighbors in the region at Eyewitness.dailypress.com

Summer congestion Traffic delays are common

DAILY PRESS

Thursday, May 22, 2014

during the summer on eastbound Interstate 64 at the Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel. If you’re heading to Virginia Beach or the Outer Banks, use the MonitorMerrimac Memorial BridgeTunnel instead and follow to I-64. Here’s another alternative recommended by VDOT crews: If you’re traveling east on I-64, take the Mercury Boulevard Exit 263 and cross the bridge. Continue on Route 17 to the I-664 interchange in Suffolk.

Potholes and construction The region has several construction and repair projects underway, including efforts to fill thousands of potholes created by winter storms.

Anyone who spends any time on the Peninsula quickly grasps the reality that the Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel is a major traffic choke point. In fact, at 7:15 a.m. you can expect to hit average travel speeds of 17 mph heading eastbound on Interstate 64 in the vicinity of the Settlers Landing Road and Mallory Street exits in Hampton. In the afternoon, I-64 westbound grinds to a 13-mph crawl in Norfolk heading into the tunnel at about 4:15 p.m. The state now has electronic signs posting delays and estimated travel times, but you will get to your destination more quickly if you use other routes, such as the Monitor-Merrimac Memorial Bridge-Tunnel or the James River Bridge.

loucester, the gateway to Virginia’s Middle Peninsula, is noted for its rural lifestyle, access to water and historic Main Street, with its shops and restaurants and summertime farmers market. The county is steeped in history. At the time of the arrival of English settlers on Virginia shores in 1607, Chief Powhatan, father of Pocahontas, had a stronghold on the banks of the York River in mid-Gloucester called Werowocomoco. Thomas Jefferson is believed to have written a draft of the Declaration of Independence while staying at Rosewell, the home of his friend John Page. The fate of the British forces under the leadership of Gen. Cornwallis was sealed in Gloucester when joint American and French cavalry units hemmed in the Redcoats in the Battle of the Hook, helping prompt the surrender at Yorktown in 1781 that effectively ended the Revolutionary War. Walter Reed, known as the conqueror of yellow fever, was born in Gloucester in a small, two-story home that still stands at the intersection of Belroi and Hickory Fork roads.

HAMPTON PROVIDES A TASTE OF OF HISTORY | MORE THAN 30,000 ATTEND THE ISLE OF WIGHT COUNTY FAIR

H

ampton is a community is where the Chesapeake Bay meets more than 400 years of military, English and African history. This community intertwines entertainment, shopping, aerospace and its storied past making it an eclectic place to live, work and play. Fort Monroe is Hampton’s stone citadel that has captured the awe and imagination of history buffs, bird watchers and Army aficionados for years. The largest stone fort in America sits on a 560-acre spit of land jutting out into the Chesapeake Bay also making it a draw for sight-seers. Fort Monroe was named the nation’s 396th National Park Service monument by President Barack Obama in November 2011. The former Army post is also a reminder of a time in 1861 when African-American slaves made their way there and found sanctuary from the repression of their owners and from the horrors of the Civil War. Once at the fort, they were declared Confederate “contraband” and lived as free people for the first time in their lives. The decisions made at Fort Monroe helped lay the foundation of a school known now as Hampton University, located just across the Hampton River from downtown. Downtown Hampton can provide a taste of history as it hosts the Hampton History Museum and Virginia Air and Space Center, the latter of which acts as the official visitors center for NASA Langley Research

L

ong one of the state’s fastest-growing counties, James City County has recently seen its influx of people slow. The economic slowdown has also affected home values, which fell for a third straight year. Commercial construction has also slowed, but a few major projects are in progress. Chief among those is Settlers Market, the final phase of the 600-acre New Town commercial and residential project. Stores such as Walmart’s Neighborhood Market and new restaurants are filling up the center. Also in the Monticello Avenue corridor, a retail center anchored by Fresh Market continues to expand, with a stand-alone Starbucks and more retail space attracting tenants. James City is home to Premium Outlets, the county’s most popular outlet center, with more than 150 stores. The struggling Williamsburg Outlet Mall, meanwhile, closed this year but will be razed for a new shopping center designed to leverage its proximity to Wanner Stadium and Thomas Nelson Community College’s Historic Triangle campus. The county’s growth spurt began in 1969, when Anheuser-Busch built a brewery and eventually the Busch Gardens theme park and Kingsmill residential and golf community. Pressing concerns include diversifying the local economy, now driven largely by tourism, controlling growth and development, and building more affordable housing.

The small Middle Peninsula county has drawn retirees and other transplants seeking the county’s quality of life. Fewer than 9,000 people are spread over 85 square miles bordered by the Mobjack and Chesapeake bays and the Piankatank River. The county has remained relatively undeveloped, retaining the slow-paced, friendly charm of a tight-knit country community. Just off the county’s north coast is Gwynn’s Island, which hundreds of people call home. The picturesque island is accessed by a drawbridge and consists mostly of waterfront and inland homes, a couple of restaurants, a museum and Coast Guard station.

bout 22 miles long and only 4 miles wide, the area that became Newport News was first settled in

1619. In 1896, that community — the former seat of Warwick County — became the separate city of Newport News. Warwick County was one of the eight original shires formed in 1634 by the House of Burgesses in the British Colony of Virginia by order of King Charles I. The famous “Battle of the Ironclads” — the USS Monitor and the CSS Virginia, also known as the Merrimac — took place off the shores of Newport News in 1862. Lee Hall Mansion and the Endview Plantation in north Newport News account for two of the city’s numerous historic landmarks. In 1881, railroad tycoon Collis P. Huntington brought the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad to Newport News and founded the city’s shipyard, which remains a major economic engine in Newport News. The shipyard has built aircraft carriers such as the Enterprise, Kennedy, Washington, Vinson and Roosevelt. It is the only shipyard in the country to build nuclearpowered aircraft carriers, and one of two that builds nuclear-powered submarines. At the other end of the city, Fort Eustis, formerly Camp Eustis, was named after Brevet Brig. Gen. Abraham Eustis, a veteran of the War of 1812. Today Newport News finds itself amid dramatic transformations. Major developments that mix housing and retail include:

oquoson is a short hop from Hampton, Newport News and elsewhere in Hampton Roads, making it a rather secluded bedroom community. Its name comes from an American Indian word meaning a great marsh. Poquoson was first recorded in English on a land patent issued to Capt. Christopher Calthorpe in 1631. The city, which incorporated in 1975 after breaking apart from York County to maintain control of its own school system, is a wealthy enclave that has a median household income of $85,033, one of the highest on the Virginia Peninsula. Watermen have plied the waters of Chesapeake Bay from ports and landings in Poquoson for generations.

short ferry ride across the James River from Jamestown can transport you to rural Surry

County. When the first English settlers sailed up the James River in 1607, they landed on the south side of the river near the present town of Claremont in Surry County. They visited the Quioughcohancock Indians, allies of the Powhatan confederacy. These settlers went on to establish the first permanent English settlement in the New World on Jamestown Island across the river. By 1609, Smith’s Fort was built in Surry, on Gray’s Creek, and Hog Island contained a fort and was used to raise hogs.

walk through 18th-century living is a highlight in this former Colonial capital. The city’s permanent residents still find amusement in seeing the historic interpreters in full Colonial garb in supermarkets and at service stations and ATMs once they are off work. Another population that gives Williamsburg its unique flavor is the college students. There are about 7,600 students and six graduate programs at the College of William and Mary, the second-oldest university in the country. William and Mary and Williamsburg provided a start to more than a few Colonial stars — Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Patrick Henry — before the capital moved to Richmond in 1780. Tourism hit two snags in the past 12 years — the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and the recession — but in 2013, meals tax receipts and hotel occupancy have shown gains.

WINDSOR’S FIRST RECORDED NAME WAS "CORROWAUGH" | YORK IS RICH IN REVOLUTIONARY WAR HISTORY

The small town of Windsor’s water tower sits next to the N&W railroad tracks and Route 460. Windsor remains on the crossroads of the route.

indsor is a small town at the crossroads of U.S. routes 258 and 460 in the center of Isle of Wight County. “Corrowaugh” was the first recorded name for what would later become Windsor. Corrowaugh was established as a post office in 1852. Mail was brought by courier once a week until 1859, when Norfolk and Petersburg Railroad (now Norfolk Southern) landed the contract to deliver the mail. The railroad built a depot, calling it Windsor Station. By the turn of the 20th century, residents elected to make the town official, and the General Assembly granted Windsor’s charter in 1902. The town is now growing around U.S. Route 460, an alternate route between Hampton Roads and Richmond. The town’s population has more than doubled over the past decade, to more than 2,600 residents, with more growth expected tied to the Port of Hampton Roads. There are plans to build a new U.S. 460 — just south of the existing thoroughfare — to help alleviate traffic throughout Hampton Roads. But that project has been put on hold as state officials review the project’s planning and permitting process under the prior administration. Just east of Windsor on U.S. 460 is the Shirley T. Holland Commerce Park, home of a million-square-foot Cost Plus World Market distribution center. In 2011, the

estled along the York River and extending west to Williamsburg’s doorstep, York County comprises the easternmost corner of the Historic Triangle, which includes Williamsburg and Jamestown. York’s major claim to fame is that it was the site of the British army’s surrender that ended the Revolutionary War. It’s hard to escape that integral link to the war fought to secure independence for the American colonies, and proud locals like it that way. The village of Yorktown sits among the Colonial National Historical Park’s battlefields, complete with cannons and earthen redoubts. The nearby Yorktown Victory Center — which is open, but undergoing construction of a new museum — is the start of the Colonial Parkway, a 23mile ribbon of picturesque roadway that connects Yorktown to Williamsburg and Jamestown Island. The costumed Fifes and Drums of York Town perform at various events throughout the year. Group members can be seen most evenings on the march around Yorktown, honing their skills. The growing county boasts a population of more than 66,000 and, with miles of waterfront real estate and top-ranked schools, is considered one of the Peninsula area’s most desirable localities. Other than its historical sites, Yorktown’s major draw is Riverwalk Landing. The retail development boasts several restaurants, shops and a popular beach area. It’s the site of numerous warm-

ewport News Shipbuilding, the nation’s largest shipyard, is Virginia’s biggest industrial employer and a core component of the local economy. On the tip of the Peninsula, the company began operations in 1886, founded by railroad magnate Collis P. Huntington. The shipyard has gone through several owners, but in 2011 it was spun off from Northrop Grumman as part of a new shipbuilding company, Huntington Ingalls Industries Inc., which has its headquarters in Newport News. It employs about 23,500 people and is home to Virginia’s largest labor union, United Steelworkers Local No. 8888. The company also owns large shipyards on the Gulf Coast. The shipyard’s long history is highlighted prominently in front of executive offices on Washington Avenue, where a restored version of the tugboat Dorothy, built in 1890, stands. It is the country’s sole designer, builder and refueler of nuclear-powered aircraft carriers, which are based at Naval Station Norfolk, at West Coast bases and in Yoko-

On midlife refuelings, workers are currently overhauling the USS Abraham Lincoln. The construction of Virginia-class submarines continues apace. Later in 2014, Newport News is scheduled to christen the submarine John Warner. Defense budgets are shrinking as the U.S. ends more than a decade of war in Iraq and Afghanistan. That has put pressure on all major contractors. Huntington Ingalls has responded in part by expanding into other areas where it has expertise. Early in 2014, Newport News Shipbuilding acquired the Colorado-based S.M. Stoller Corp., which has a history of cleaning up old radioactive and nuclear sites that are left over from the Cold War. Stoller has site experts such as geologists and chemists, while the shipyard has extensive nuclear engineering expertise.

Every branch of the service is represented in southeastern Virginia. Start with the world’s largest naval base and the only East Coast home for the mighty aircraft carriers. Fighter jets from the Navy and the Air Force soar overhead. Coast Guard cutters patrol the waterways. Soldiers and Marines deploy to far-flung hot spots along with the celebrated Navy SEALs.

Support for both locations is combined under the 633rd Air Base Wing, but each facility retains its distinct identity. Main units on Langley AFB are Air Combat Command headquarters, 480th Intelligence Surveillance Reconnaissance Wing, 1st Fighter Wing and 633rd Air Base Wing. Langley’s 1st Fighter Wing operates and maintains the F-22 Raptors flown by the 27th and 94th Fighter Squadrons.

rom Civil War battlefields to the beach, many sites are within driving distance of Hampton Roads. Learn history while having fun in the sun.

1. Appomattox Court House, Appomattox The buildings and fields where Robert E. Lee surrendered his Confederate army are still a peaceful place in the hills east of Lynchburg. Check out the Museum of the Confederacy’s newest Appomattox Museum where visitors can see Lee’s sword. 434-352-8987, ext. 226. nps.gov/apco 2. Ash Lawn-Highland and Montpelier, Charlottesville The Charlottesville area boasts not one but three presidents. Go north from Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello to check out James Madison’s newly restored Montpelier (540-672-2728, ext. 100 montpelier.org). Or jaunt just south to see James Monroe’s Ash Lawn-Highland (434293-8000, ashlawnhighland.org). 3. Belle Grove Plantation, Frederick County Visit the only antebellum plantation in the Northern Shenandoah Valley. It was built in 1797 for Isaac Hite and his wife, Nelly, (sister of future president James

Madison) and was the centerpiece of the Battle of Cedar Creek in the Civil War. 540-869-2028. bellegrove.org 4. Cape Charles, Eastern Shore Eyre Hall and its beautiful gardens are the Eastern Shore’s entry into the historic mansion registry. Nearby Cape Charles gives you a wonderful view of the Chesapeake. www.virginia.org/cities/CapeCharles/ 5. Colonial Downs Colonial Downs is Virginia’s only pari-mutuel horse racetrack. Located in New Kent County at Exit 214 off I-64, the track often features summer thoroughbred racing, a fall harness racing season and an ever-growing year-round slate of special events. 804-966-7223. colonialdowns.com 6. Fredericksburg Spend the morning and afternoon visiting the Civil War battlefields that surround this city (Chancellorsville, Spotsylvania Courthouse or the Fredericksburg battlefield) and easily go back into the historic town for lunch and a treat at Carl’s, a much-loved ice cream stand. 540373-6122. nps.gov/frsp

JUST DRIVE A FEW MILES AND YOU’RE BOUND TO HIT AN INTERESTING SPOT

This is where George Washington was born in 1732. 804-224-1732 ext. 227. www.nps.gov/gewa 8. Great Dismal Swamp, Suffolk Escaped slaves hid within this 112,000-acre wildlife refuge for bears, bobcats, minks and turtles in southeastern Virginia and northeastern North Carolina. Over 100 miles of trails wind through the swamp. 757-986-3705. www.fws.gov/refuge/great_dismal_swamp/ 9. Harpers Ferry, West Virginia Just over the state border sits the town John Brown invaded in 1859 to steal guns to arm a slave revolt.

John Marshall House, Richmond John Marshall built this urban plantation from 1788 to 1790 and lived there until his death in 1835 — during which time he

RESEARCH

H

ampton Roads — and the Peninsula in particular — boasts an array of world-class research facilities. Here are some notables:

NASA Langley Research Center The center in Hampton was founded in 1917 as the nation’s first civilian aeronautics laboratory. Almost every commercial and military plane produced in this country has been tested at the wind tunnels there. Langley’s name is built on aeronautics research. Engineers in Hampton helped push pilots past the sound barrier and continue to make significant contributions to making air travel faster, safer, quieter and more efficient. The center, with a projected FY2015 budget of $760 million and about 3,530 civil service and contract employees, was also the original training site for NASA’s first astronauts in the Mercury program. Neil Armstrong practiced moon landings at the center’s massive gantry. Langley researchers are involved in many aspects of the post-space shuttle era of ex-

HAMPTON ROADS IS HOME TO WORLD-CLASS FACILITIES WORKING IN A VARIETY OF DISCIPLINES

ploration. Several teams are working on various aspects of the next-generation launch rockets and crew capsule. Langley researchers were responsible for millions of computer simulations that allowed the Curiosity rover to land safely on Mars to search for evidence that the red planet once supported life. The facility’s civil service and contract employees also develop technologies to make airliners safer, faster, quieter, greener and more fuel efficient and to help transform the national air transportation system; study Earth’s atmosphere and support space missions through structure and materials analysis. It has a civil service payroll of about $265 million.

Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility The facility is a national nuclear physics laboratory in Newport News operated by the U.S. Department of Energy. Known as Jefferson Lab — and shortened by locals to “Jeff Lab” — its equipment allows scientists from around the world to peer inside subatomic particles and study the nucleus of the atom,

where quarks and gluons act as the building blocks of protons and neutrons. Scientists at Jeff Lab also use their knowledge of particle physics for medical purposes. One team is building imaging devices that can detect smaller cancer tumors than standard methods.

Eastern Virginia Medical School The school opened in Norfolk in 1973 and since then has graduated more than 5,000 health professionals, with nearly 3,500 alumni practicing around the state. Every day more than 150 full-time EVMS physicians and surgeons care for more than 1,500 people throughout the area. The facility has an $824 million impact on the regional economy every year. EVMS is a nationally known education and research center, and its faculty members see patients and conduct research in a wide range of specialties, including cancer, diabetes, geriatrics, women’s health and sleep medicine. Research in reproductive medicine conducted at the Jones Institute for Reproductive Medicine led to the birth of the nation’s first child through in vitro fertilization.

Virginia Institute of Marine Science The institute provides research, education and guidance to government, industry and the community. It also operates the School of Marine Science, a graduate school at the College of William and Mary. Many scientists there focus research on the beleaguered Chesapeake Bay, but VIMS’ expertise is noted around the world, including the effects of climate change on coral reefs and polar ice. Local projects include studying how pollution harms the bay, investigating fish kills and algae blooms and seeking to restore the bay’s depleted oyster population.

IT’S TIME TO PREPARE FOR They say it’s “blended for our area”- but look at the tag carefully. Blends are composed of several kinds of seeds and it’s possible that as much as 1/3 of the product is “blended” for a condition which doesn’t apply to your yard. For instance, if you’re planting in the shade, you hardly need 1/3 of the seed which is selected to grow in the sun and vice versa. That means that as much as 1/3 of your money is being wasted and, in today’s economy, who wants to waste 1/3 of the money you’re spending

VIMS also has restoration programs focusing on the bay’s seagrass and blue crab stock. The institute was chartered in 1940 and is located on the York River at Gloucester Point.

GONE FISHING

W

ith its many waterways, Hampton Roads is a dream for fishing enthusiasts. Fishing can be done from piers, shorelines and by boat, with plenty of saltwater and freshwater options. It is important to know the licensing rules and fishing regulations before you make your first cast. Freshwater regulations can be found on the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries website at www.dgif.virginia.gov. For saltwater regulations, visit the Virginia Marine Resources Commission website at mrc.virginia.gov. A saltwater license is sufficient in the Chesapeake Bay and most Hampton Roads tidal waters, including the lower James River (downstream of the line between Hog Island and College Creek), lower York River (downstream of the Route 33 bridge) and Elizabeth River (north of Great Bridge Locks). Freshwater licenses are required when fishing lakes, reservoirs and ponds, as well as portions of rivers and creeks not designated as saltwater. If you aren’t sure whether you need one license or both, contact the VMRC, game and inland fisheries, or ask the experts at your local bait and tackle shop. It is always best to ask and make certain you are completely legal. Licenses can be purchased online, at most local bait shops, and at some retail locations that sell fishing gear. A license is not required if you are under16, or if you are 65 and over. Those 65 and older fishing in saltwater areas are required to register for free each year with the Virginia Fisherman Identification Program. Common saltwater gamefish in the lower Chesapeake Bay and its tidal tributaries include black drum, cobia, croaker, flounder, gray trout (weakfish), red drum (smaller fish referred to as ‘puppy drum’), spot, spotted seatrout (speckled trout, specks), striped bass (rockfish) and tautog. Most of these species move in and out of area waters seasonally, with water temperature and migratory patterns playing a key role. Many other species frequent the bay, particularly during the summer months. Saltwater baits and methods vary depending on the species. Crab, squid, shrimp, bunker (menhaden) and bloodworms are common natural baits. A range of artificials — bucktail jigs, soft plastic grubs, plugs and lures — are commonly used. If you’ve never dropped a line in the water before, a piece of cut squid or bloodworm on a hook with a little bit of weight to keep it on the bottom will usually entice a bite if croaker or spot are in the area. Offshore, many pelagic species and bottom fish are available in Atlantic Ocean waters.

DROP YOUR LINES IN THE REGION’S WATERS & CHECK OUT WHAT’S BITING

Blue crabs, oysters and clams are also abundant in the area’s tidal reaches. Each carries its own set of regulations. Current rules are available on the Virginia Marine Resources Commission website. If you need clarification on any of the rules, email addresses and phone numbers for VMRC personnel can be found on the website’s Contact Us page. Common freshwater catches include largemouth bass, striped bass, several varieties of panfish, catfish and crappie (speckled perch). Baits and methods vary widely. When going fishing, always: ■ Have your fishing license and a photo ID ■ Wear sunscreen ■ Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated ■ Tell someone where you are going and when you plan to return COMMON SALTWATER GAMEFISH

Striped bass. The most popular gamefish in the Chesapeake Bay. Fish can only be kept during specific spring and fall seasons. Flounder. A favorite catch of the bay’s smallboat fishermen, commonly caught around bridges and other underwater structure. Croaker. The most common catch in the bay, and found almost everywhere. Gray trout. Also known as weakfish, gray trout can be caught from many of the area’s piers. Spotted seatrout. Common in shallow waters during the late spring, summer and fall. The Elizabeth River is the winter haven. Red drum. Smaller fish referred to as puppy drum. These aggressive feeders are found in large numbers throughout the area.

Javier Gonzalez does some fishing along the Back River where it meets the James River.

TAKE A HIKE

T

he treadmill is nice, but why pass up on experiencing the area’s natural setting for convenience, when you can let the green space and trails on the Peninsula take you away for a few hours? Some trails capitalize on the area’s natural setting while others simply provide a respite within the cityscape. Several trails wind through many of Hampton Roads’ national, state, municipal and privately developed parks. Either way you can get in your recommended 10,000 paces daily with the area’s history as the backdrop of some of these suggested walks. Beaverdam Park The hiking trail at Gloucester County’s biggest park offers anything from a short stroll to a 21-mile epic. Get a trail guide at trailheads or at the ranger station near the parking lot for an enlightening walk with attractive views of the trail’s reservoir from various vantage points. From Main Street at Gloucester Court House, take Roaring Springs Road (Route 616) for about 3 miles. It runs into the park’s parking lot. 804-693-2107.

HOP OFF THE TREADMILL TO ENJOY SCENIC VIEWS & LANDSCAPES

Chesapeake Bay beachfront while at Grandview Nature Preserve. The preserve doesn’t offer any facilities or staff members. A pathway, about a third-of-a-mile long, leads from State Park Road (off Beach Road in the city’s Fox Hill area) to the beach. Matteson Trail The Matteson Trail offers a flat, asphalt path. In a few areas, tree roots have caused ripples in the asphalt, but it’s suitable for buggies and wheelchairs. The shady, leafy path follows the contours of The Hamptons golf course through deciduous woods. There are ponds along the path, too. Want to pace yourself? Well, there are benches at the mile markers. Developed by a bird enthusiast, the trail has display boards depicting birds that may be seen along the way, including wrens, thrushes and bluebirds. The songs of the birds are a nice transition from the noise of the traffic on Magruder Boulevard (the trail begins and ends near the Hampton Teen Center on Butler Farm Road) that you’ll experience at the beginning of the trail. 757-766-9148. Newport News Park Looking for variety? This park offers several trails. The centerpiece is the 2.8-mile White Oak Nature Trail. It starts near the park’s Interpretive Center, traverses a footbridge across the park’s reservoir, then turns right to make a wide loop around the lake. Another footbridge

crosses a marsh at the reservoir’s west end, an especially picturesque spot. The park entrance is on Jefferson Avenue in upper Newport News, between Fort Eustis Boulevard and Yorktown Road. 757-888-3333. The Noland Trail The 5-mile Noland Trail, located in The Mariners’ Museum Park in Newport News, wraps around and over the 167-acre Lake Maury through 550 acres of deciduous woods. The trail features several bridges and picnic areas overlooking the scenery. An ever-changing landscape maintains constant interest for the walker with views of the ironclad Monitor, the wide reaches of the lakes, and all the wildlife it supports. The path zigzags and turns, changing surfaces and levels constantly to create a good workout for both walkers and joggers. Enjoy the close-up views of aquatic wildlife and the scent of greenery while walking this trail. To get to the trail, follow J. Clyde Morris Boulevard until it becomes Avenue of the Arts, then take a left on Museum Drive. Park on the right to start at the North Entrance. 757-591-7722. Riverwalk Landing Riverwalk Landing at Yorktown provides an interesting mix of town, nature and beach sceneries tied all in one. With this trail there are options. You can start at the free parking lot across from the stores at Riverwalk Landing and pick up

a map of trolley stops there or start at the Victory Center (parking 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and make your way down the concrete path, picking up the brick walkway on Water Street at the bottom. Look to the left and you’ll catch sight of the York River slapping against a sandy beach that lines the path for about a mile. 757-890-3500. Sandy Bottom Nature Park This Hampton city park offers 6 miles of flat, woodland foot trails for easy walking. The longest trail hugs the shores of two lakes. Two entrances, off Big Bethel Road and off Hampton Roads Center Parkway. 757-825-4657. Waller Mill Park A Williamsburg city park (actually in neighboring York County), Waller Mill Park offers trails with water views. The Lookout Tower Trail is 2.9 miles long. An asphalt trail known as the Bike Path will give you 4 miles of walking if you go all the way to the end and back. Or choose one of two shorter trails. Off Airport Road (Route 645). 757-259-3778. York River State Park Take advantage of the options that York River State Park’s16 trails offer. This full-service park in Williamsburg has a few bicycle-only or horseonly trails, seven multiuse and three walking-only trails — a total of 25 miles. Some trails are flat and broad, a few go up bluffs and down gullies. 757-566-3036.
