School Board officials heard citizen concerns and encouraging words from the superintendent on a wide range of issues, but made quick work of more than 55 policy changes at the September meeting. Citizen Caren Haug made a plea to the school board to offer teachers higher pay. As a mother of a seventh and third grader, she said she sees teachers come and go. Haug believes the town is not putting in the required amount of funding. Haug said she and her friends don’t want to leave the school system and many can’t afford to. “Every child in this school deserves the best education they can get,” Haug said. “The town has got to step up.” School Board Chairman Tim Trivett told Haug that all the school’s money comes from the town, county, state and federal government, which he said have all cut back on funding. Trivett assured her that the school board does everything possible to prompt the town council and even legislators to give our teachers raises. Trivett said he has heard more positive comments this year than he has in his five years as a member of the school board. “We have people in our school division that really care. I care about your kids just like I care about my own,” Trivett said, thanking her for her comments and encouraging her to come to the town budget meetings and bring friends. Haug concluded by saying, “We’ve lost a music teacher, we lost a librarian. What are they going to take from me next year?” In the absence of Superintendent Kathleen Beane, Tracey Tunstall, Director of Federal Programs, delivered the superintendent’s report. Beane reported that the first week of school went smoothly. Bus routes and stops have been adjusted so that none of the morning or afternoon bus rides are longer than 35 minutes. Beane reported that she rode all the routes several times and parents have been very cooperative with all the changes. The schools have conducted mandatory lock downs and evacuation drills already this year. The children

have also conducted bus evacuation drills, practicing entering and leaving the buses through both the front door and rear emergency doors. Art Buzzwell, president of the Colonial Beach Historical Society, has asked for permission to prepare and submit the initial document to the state review board of Virginia Historic Resources to try to obtain historical status for the two-story brick building located in the middle of the elementary school campus. The superintendent’s report reminded the school board that preparation of these documents routinely cost thousands of dollars, but the Colonial Beach Historical Society is offering these services free of charge. Tracey Tunstall then informed the School Board on her work on the cafeteria program and putting together a school band. Tunstall reported that she met with Superintendent Beane and Ashley Gingrich, the new music teacher. Tunstall said the group worked really hard to come up with a way to keep music in the school. The group decided on forming a school band. There will be an after-school band program, available to students in grades 4 through 12. Twenty-seven students have already signed up for that program. The band instruments have been sent out to be cleaned and serviced. Tracey Tunstall reported that she has worked on the school cafeteria program with Sharon Dunavant, Director of Food Service. Tunstall reported that the kids like the food much better than last year and the program is making a profit. Tunstall also announced that there will be a joint meeting between the school board and town council at 5:30 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 30, at the town meeting center to update both groups with the status of the schools accreditation and federal annual measurable objectives based on the 12-13 school year. The second purpose of the meeting is to present cost comparisons of building estimates for the relocation of the elementary school to assist both groups with making informed decisions concerning future school needs. The Colonial Beach school board approved 54 policy changes as well See Schools, page 6

Colonial Beach celebrates homecoming

During the annual Drifter Homecoming Parade held Friday, Oct. 4, Colonial Beach School Board Superintendent Kathleen Beane (left) and Colonial Beach School Board member Vicki Roberson greet onlookers in the streets of Colonial Beach with an assortment of candy and gifts.

7-Eleven joins expanding businesses On the heels of expansions announced by two well-known Colonial Beach businesses last week, the Colonial Beach 7-Eleven began an extensive remodeling project this week. The store will remain open during the construction, which should be finished by Thanksgiving. Locally owned and operated by Lonnie Phillips, a lifelong Colonial Bech resident who has operated the 7-Eleven for 39 years, the Colonial Avenue store has become a gathering place for local residents attracted by Phillips’ enthusiastic attitude. Phillips said the remodeling will be confined to the gas service area and he hopes disruptions can be held to a minimum. “We are putting in new four wide gas pumps, new tanks, a new canopy and it will have a new configuration,” he said. “It’s going to be a challenge, but will allow us to offer even better service when it is finished. “We will be able to offer all blends, diesel at all four corners and pay at the pump capabilities.” Phillips’ legendary enthusiasm when talking about sports, Colonial Beach or his customers should keep business steady even during the construction period. “I am grateful for my customers,” Phillips said.” I love this community. It is a great place to live, work and raise a family. And, I truly value our patrons and hope they will not be inconvenienced as we grow.” Phillips’ 7-Eleven improvement joins two other business expansions underway at the Beach. Beverly and Lloyd Alspaugh, well-known owners of the Rankin’s Hardware and the Rankin’s Appliance and Furniture stores, opened their latest business venture on Oct. 4 — The Peddler’s Market, at 501 Euclid Avenue.

In its heyday, the wooden boat was all the rage with a state-of-the-art VHF radio, but newer fiberglass boats and fancy GPS technology have made the old Chris Crafts and Elco Motor Yachts antique nostalgia.

Short-handed Planning Commission addresses zoning, public hearing The Colonial Beach Planning Commission has seven seats. However, with recent commissioners exiting to move on to other endeavors, and commissioners Margaret McMullin and David Coombes choosing not to renew their terms after expiration, the commission is down to four sitting members. A quorum is three-fourths of the sitting members, which is why the planning commission has been able to continue to conduct business. Commissioners are asking that anyone interested in joining, please visit Town Clerk Kathy Flanagan to obtain and fill out an application. Current seated members include Chairwoman Maureen Holt, Commissioners Ed Grant, Kent Rodeheaver and Robin Schick, who was not in attendance at the October meeting. The Colonial Beach Planning Commission held a record 13-anda-half-minute meeting on Oct. 3. Accomplishing not only a public hearing and discussions on proposed changes to Article 9 - Commercial Residential Zoning District (which passed to the council with a unanimous vote in favor of the changes), the commission also reviewed what is being called the “Ten Thousand Dollar Document” — Design Guidelines Proposed Comprehensive Plan Amendments (DGPCPA). DGCPA began with a $10,000 grant from the Virginia Housing Development Authority to conduct public meetings to discuss general standards for properties, for which citizens attending these meetings have expressed a desire. The guidelines are voluntary. Existing property owners are more than welcome to abide by these guidelines, but will only be encouraged by the building and zoning office when a developer or property owner is seeking to rezone or obtain a conditional use permit (CUP). The developer can then proffer to design and build in concert with these guidelines. Some of the guidelines include, but are not limited to preserving vegetation, drainage and views (where possible), preserving architectural details of existing buildings, replicating predominant architecture in new buildings, reducing or eliminating unsightly utilities, and relying on aesthetically pleasing signage that adds to the character of the buildings, rather than dominate the landscape. The idea of these voluntary guidelines is to encourage new development to preserve what was discovered about Colonial Beach in a 2001 historical survey, conducted by Kathryn A. Miller of Historic and Architectural Resources. “Few communities have such a complete representation of historic resort architecture,” Miller stated in her findings. The guidelines were created in See GUIDELINES, page 6

VIRGINIA VIEWPOINTS

Redskins fans: What’s in a name? When I was little I had a Washington Redskins watch cap that I kept until it frayed so badly that it almost became unrecognizable. Heaven help the kid who tried to take it away from me. They were, after all, our team. Names like Vince Lombardi, George Allen, Joe Theisman, Billy Kilmer, and David S. Kerr Sonny Jurgensen are the stuff of legends. Of course, that was then. Today, I follow the ups and downs of RGIII with the same rapt attention I gave those now retired and departed greats. But, over the past few years, a worry has crept into my thinking. Perhaps, its time Washington’s football team changed its name. This has been hashed out in the press, letters to the editor, and over

water coolers for years. But, come on, it’s the 21st century and names like Redskins just aren’t appropriate anymore. That is, if they ever were. And no, lest I provoke the immediate reflex of being told that this is all about political correctness, it isn’t. Rather, I think of what my grandmother said when telling me why I shouldn’t use an unfortunate word to describe someone of another race, “It’s just not nice.” To a Southerner, that’s all I needed to hear. Besides, there is nothing all that sacrosanct about the name of a football team. Sure there is tradition, but teams have changed their names before. Remember the Washington Bullets, the Baltimore Colts and the Washington Senators? Each one of them changed their names. Also, the Redskins weren’t always the Redskins. Before they moved to Washington for the 1937 season, in Boston where the team began, they were the Braves. That was a much better name, but their owner, George Preston Marshall, an impressive figure,

but well known for his hostility to minorities of all kinds, changed the name to Redskins. And it stuck. Now, what’s the big deal about calling the team the Redskins anyway? It’s a football team for crying out loud. Fair enough, but Redskin isn’t just another name for Native Americans. It was never, borrowing from Grandma again, a nice name. It was always hostile and pejorative. For Native Americans it’s a lot like the N word. That’s an epithet for African Americans so egregious that spelling it out is never done in a decent newspaper. Considered in that context it gives this discussion an entirely different light. American Indians have wanted to change the name of the team for decades. Maybe it’s time we listened to them. President Obama recently suggested that the team’s owner consider changing the name of the franchise. It was restrained and thoughtful suggestion. However, in this hyper-partisan environment, I am not sure he did the cause of changing the team’s

name any good or not. Curiously though, the last time an administration weighed in on an issue concerning the Capitol’s football team was when Robert Kennedy, at John Kennedy’s request, put pressure on team owner Marshall to integrate the team. The Federal government owned the football stadium and could have told the Redskins to play elsewhere. The Redskins, under the very team owner who gave them the Redskins moniker was just about the last owner in professional football to integrate his team. Very few events unify our region quite like the Redskins. From the Maryland suburbs, to West Virginia, Richmond and the Northern Neck, when it’s game time, the roads and the stores are all but empty. Almost every household is glued to the TV. And those who aren’t watching the game often want to know the score as soon as it’s available. But maybe it’s time that we exercised a little thoughtfulness and, instead of “Redskins,” found a nice name for our team.

OP-ED

Are you complaining or participating? Ruby Brabo Are you truly aware of what is happening with regards to your local county government? Until something hits you square in the eye or is parked at your door step, are you asking questions or participating? If not, you may be too late to make a change. Do you know what your local elected officials are discussing and deciding on your behalf? Do you really understand what impact those decisions have on your family and your property? Much of the time our focus is on the state and national level and it’s hard to stay informed with all that is happening. However, know that your voice is always heard more on the local level than at the national level. Everyone has different interests and passions. No one person has the time to devote to every issue facing the county. But before you complain, be sure you are engaged enough to understand how decisions will impact your quality of life before they do. Be sure you are engaged enough to have a voice in determining the outcome as you will be the one who has to live with it. “Bad officials are elected by good citizens who do not vote.” — George Jean Nathan Well said. Of the more than 15,000 registered voters in King George for the 2009 election (nonpresidential), only 5,195 (38 percent) registered

voters in King George exercised their right to vote. That’s it. What happened to the other 10,000 registered voters? For the 2012 election (presidential), 67 percent of the registered voters in King George turned out to vote. Once again, 2013 is a non-presidential election year. Your participation in this year’s election is vital to the future of King George County and your family. Are you going to vote? Election Day is fast approaching, and — quite literally — every vote makes a difference. Sadly, King George residents are not known for their activism when it comes to participating in their right to vote, but I am encouraged by the increased interest in our local government just over the past two years. Recognizing that both the Shiloh District and James Monroe District have candidates on the this year’s ballot, it is interesting to note that in 2009, when those seats were last up for election, only 40 percent of the registered voters in the James Monroe District voted, while barely 36 percent of the registered voters in the Shiloh District voted. We can do better than that; we have to do better than that! Your quality of life depends on it. To be eligible to vote on Nov. 5, you must be registered by 5 p.m., Oct. 15, 2013. As of this year, you can now easily register to vote online at www.sbe. state.va.us. Unless your driver’s license number is used when applying online, you will need to print

a paper copy of your completed application and mail or drop it off at the Registrar’s office by the Oct. 15 deadline. The Registrar’s office is located in the Revercomb Building, 10459 Courthouse Drive Suite 102. Their hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday – Friday. Absentee voting has already started. Anyone who will be out of their precinct on Election Day can go to the Registrar’s office and absentee vote. No appointment necessary. Absentee voting will continue in person until Nov. 2. The offices of the General Registrar will be open two Saturdays (Oct. 26 and Nov. 2) prior to the Election from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for absentee voting. An absentee ballot application can also be downloaded from the same website referenced above. If you wish to have an absentee ballot mailed to you, the completed application must be turned into the Registrar’s office by Oct. 29, which is the very last day that a ballot can be mailed to voters. If you have any questions, call the Registrar’s office: (540) 775-9186. On Nov. 5, the polls open at 6 a.m. and will close promptly at 7 p.m. Be sure to bring your voter identification or some other form of picture ID proving your address. So, are you going to complain or are you going to participate by voting? One vote can make a difference!

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, you may be tempted to throw caution to the wind. While that may make for a memorable experience, it may not prove wise over the long haul.

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Compassion is your speciality, Pisces. Others appreciate your warm nature, so accept their gratitude and affection.

CROSSWORD PUZZLE

Letter to the Editor Is America Still a Christian Nation? You Decide “God bless America, land that I love. Stand beside her and guide her through the night with the light from above …” Such a beautiful song, such beautiful words. Do we as a nation still want the God of the Bible to shine His light and Word on America? The first book taught in our schools was the Bible. Schools of higher learning like Yale, Harvard, Dartmouth and others built their foundational teaching on the gospel of Jesus Christ. Since the beginning of this nation the Bible, prayer and the Ten Commandments could be found in our schools. Then in the ’60s the Bible and prayer were taken out of schools. Later the Ten Commandments were not only removed from our schools but from government and state property. Every chance it gets, the ACLU tries to remove every mention of God from our society. In many schools students cannot wear crosses as jewelry. The reason is it might offend someone. Today our schools are great in tolerance (except toward Christianity) and political correctness. Now our military is not allowed to share Jesus Christ or share the Bible. Do we still want God and His Word to be the Light of America? For two elections Christians have helped elect President Obama. One election maybe understandable, but twice you decide. Obama believes in abortion, partial birth-abortion and if there is a botched abortion, the child is not allowed to receive any help, just left to die. God hates the shedding of innocent blood. President Obama claims to be a Christian, a follower of Jesus Christ. In an interview President Obama said, “All people of faith — Christians, Jews, Muslims, Animists, everyone knows the same God.” When it comes to homosexuality and same-sex marriage, he opposes the traditional, biblical and

historical standards of the Christian faith, one man and one woman in marriage. Obama has said that the Islamic evening call to prayer is one of the most beautiful sounds on earth. The president was asked if he believed in sin and he said, “Yes.” He was then asked to describe sin. He said, “Being out of alignment with my values.” Sin is not based on any of man’s standards, but on obedience to God and His word. Twice Christians helped elect this man. Christians should examine their lives to see if they really are in the faith. Many churches believe in abortion, homosexuality and same-sex marriage. Early on in this nation repentance, holiness and righteousness was proclaimed from the pulpits of America. Today, feel-good sermons, tolerance, mid-life crisis sermons are now being heard. Some churches take surveys in the community to see what the people want from a church. When the Word of God was exalted, the name of Jesus Christ was honored; it gave this nation strength and stability. Since we have rejected God, His Word, His commandments and Jesus Christ, our nation has been falling apart.

The

Are we still a Christian nation? America has killed over 55 million babies, God’s creation, and counting. With today’s technology we can see the baby’s face grimacing in pain and terror as it fights for its life. Will there be consequences for killing millions of babies! Think about those 55 million babies when Obamacare is

fully implemented and we become a government-run health care nation. The Bible says if we would ask forgiveness of our sins and turn away from all evil, Jesus Christ will forgive our sins and heal our land. Time is running out for America. Dale Taylor (540) 273-9037

With a little effort, raising the $30 will not be hard. $1.25 will feed six, with the food package we will put together on the 24th. If you are interested in learning more about the project, go to stophungernow.org. Any and all ages are welcome to come out to help package the food. No heavy lifting, no real thinking involved.

Psalm 55:14 We who had sweet fellowship together, walked in the house of God in the throng.

What does the Bible say about the vital nature of Christian hope? “. . . Eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body. For we are saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.” Romans 8:23-25 We have arrived at the busy season. It is a season of expectations, hope, waiting, and joy; and accompanied by deadlines, diminished daylight, and fussy kids “generously served over a bed” of the regular chores of daily life. How we love the holidays, the expectations of the comings and goings of loved ones, of celebratory preparations, of gift giving and receiving, of ornaments and of traditions! In the midst of all the hustle, bustle, and bother we know that there is a date on the calendar upon which all our hopes are founded and to which our minds are incessantly drawn. Though we would prefer to have our “Currier and Ives” Christmas dreams come true, often reality falls short of our expectation and we find ourselves worn out with the stress of it all – though we manage to make memories and spread a bit of Christ’s love while remembering our Savior and our God. There is a lesson in this season for the informed Christian which is found in Romans chapter eight. This grand and glorious chapter of Paul’s expounds the spiritual blessings of genuine believers that were procured through the inestimable blood of Jesus Christ. Along with salvation, our God gives us the gift of the indwelling Holy Spirit. The role of the Holy Spirit is to enable Christians to live free from condemnation

(1-8), pursue a life of Spirit led decisions (9-14), face the trials of life with hope (15-25), as He energizes a fervent and effectual prayer life (2630). The rest of the chapter assures every believer of the undying love of God that reaches every believer’s heart, no matter what is coming at you. The simple lesson, which is also fitting for this season of busyness, is this: “do not lose sight of the glorious hope you have in God!” Verses 15 to 25 call us to face the trials of life with hope. What kind of hope? It appears to be a reflected hope (v. 18). Paul tells us to calculate the present sufferings and come to the definite conclusion that they are not of the same weight (“worthy”) as the glory which shall be made manifest in (lit. “upon”) us – meaning that God will glorify Himself in and through you so that His glory is reflected from your life (2 Thessalonians 1:5-10, 1 Peter 1:7, 4:13). This hope does not come from within and is not a self-generated hope, it is rather an expectant hope. Remember, biblical hope retains no shadow of the uncertainties of earthbound hopes. Instead, biblical hope is a certainty not yet realized. It appears to be a shared hope (v. 19-21). Even as all of the natural creation groans in seemingly aimless idleness and futility, because of the sin of Adam subjected to the bondage of corruption, we also groan under the labors of life in this sinful world. Yet, the hope of the believer is shared by all of creation in that believers will one day be revealed as Sons of God who are the recipients of glorious liberty in Christ. In this shared hope there is shared expectancy (watch with anxious longing and outstretched look, literally “away the head”). There is a certain sense

By rick crookshank in which both Creation and believers await the time for the completed redemption. It appears to be an inextinguishable hope (v. 22-23). The proof of your hope is found in the groaning labor of creation around you and the very sighing of your heart as evidenced by the firstfruit work of the Holy Spirit within you. It is an unquenchable longing that beats within the chest of every believer for the finished work of God’s completed redemption (Philippians 1:6). It appears to be a characteristic hope (v. 24-25). Our text states that we are saved in this hope, meaning “in that hope we are saved.” This hope is not a “work for salvation,” rather it is a mark of the saved life. The believer is a person who is characterized by an inextinguishable, shared hope of reflecting the glory of God, however imperfect as we currently are, until the final and full manifestation of adoption and sonship - when we are fully perfect before the throne of God. The hope of adoption is one of pardon, forgiveness, acceptance, security, and sanctification. With this kind of living hope reverberating in your redeemed heart, in full knowledge that nothing can separate you from the love of God, face the world in this season, and in every other season, in confident expectation of Christ’s victory. Trust and obey. By Rick Crookshank Pastor, Hanover Baptist Church Hanoverbaptistchurch.org Did you know? On Sunday, Nov. 24 around 125 people will work together to package 48,000 meals. Want to help?

Love Thy Neighbor A simple command but one full of confusion as to how one can help.

Today, Philip Carter Strother, a direct descendant of Robert “King” family, owns and operates the Philip Carter Winery and was instrumental in the passage of The Virginia Farm Winery Zoning Act which promotes the economic vitality of the Virginia wine industry. As a way of honoring his family legacy, Philip Carter Strother labels the wines from his vineyard according to Carter family estates.

Scouting for Food Combined units of Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venture Crews, and Girls Scouts will be distributing “Scouting for Food” bags throughout Colonial Beach, VA, on October 26, 2013. On November 2, 2013, the Scouts will return to the neighborhoods to collect the donation bags, return them to the Church, sort them, and store them in the Church’s Food Panty. PLEASE NOTE: All food collected remains in Colonial Beach, in the Colonial Beach Baptist Church’s Food Pantry to help those who need assistance locally. • The Colonial Beach Baptist Church has been helping 30 to 35 families a week with food donations (sometimes more). That does not sound like too many, right? However, each week it is a different 30 to 35 families or approximately 130+ families per month the church is assisting. • When the food runs out and the shelves are devoid of food products the Church reaches into their Congregational Funds and spends around $300.00 a week at the grocery store to restock the shelves. • So this October/November help us to help the community food pantry at the Colonial Beach Baptist Church. • The combined units of Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venture Crew, and Girls Scouts will be distributing “Scouting for Food” bags throughout the community on Saturday the 26 starting at 9:30 – 10:00 AM from the Colonial Beach Baptist Church on Garfield Avenue.

Guidelines: Compliance is voluntary From page 1 hopes of preserving the architectural heritage of the town, in hopes that building on these assets will reinforce the town’s identity and help to create a long-term vibrant community.

Linda Farneth

Owner Bill Bowman and Executive Assistant Beth Stilling want to make visitors comfortable when they visit The Boathouse Marina.

Marina: Restoring boats, supplying boaters from page 1 with Mary Virginia by his side. Mary Virginia and her family, Colonial Beach residents, and boaters from all around mourned the loss of Clarence in January of 2006. Mary Virginia continued to run the marina while her grandson, Stephan Williams, took over Clarence’s duties. But sadly, Stephan died in 2008, at age 29, from complications resulting from an accident while working with hydraulic equipment a year earlier. Now named The Boathouse Marina, located at 829 Robin Grove Lane, Bowman — a longtime friend of the Stanfords — plans to offer restoration services, safety equipment, electronics and all of the things today’s boat owners need. “I’m a boat owner. I travel a lot on my boat. I know what I enjoy with my marina stops, and I’m trying to replicate that,” Bowman said. “This is a boaterowned, boater-friendly marina.” Bowman, a retired construction company owner, has been restoring old things most of his life. His love of restoring cars transferred into restoring boats almost 20 years ago. Bowman met Clarence Stanford when he came to Colonial Beach and purchased the Hermioni, a 1920s 57-foot Elco Motor Yacht, about 17 years ago. Bowman restored it, had a lot of fun with it, then bought another one to restore and sell. He has bought two more boats, but hasn’t decided on which one he wants to live. He plans to find a cottage boat to settle down in eventually. In the meantime, he commutes from Richmond where he currently resides. Bowman, along with his executive assistant, Beth Stilling, open the store Wednesdays at 11 a.m., with no particular closing time, Thursdays and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Bowman said that his number is on the door, and he can be reached for emergencies. If he can’t show up, he’ll call someone to meet a boat owner in need. Bowman’s schedule resembles the laid-back schedule that was kept by the Stanfords. “Sundays usually are wind-down days,” he said. “We’ll keep track of traffic and open more hours if needed.” The Boathouse Marina will upgrade its merchandise to accommodate the newer boat owners, and will phase-out building supplies from the old Stanfords’ days. “Instead of being a boatyard, we are changing over to be more of a ma-

rina, offering services that slip holders look to have and want,” Bowman said. “We’re just coming in and going through the stuff that was left from the previous owner. There’s a lot of boatbuilding equipment and supplies.” Bowman added that merchandise left from Stanfords included items that were left over from the very active time in the business of boatbuilding, probably from the ’70s and ’80s. “I don’t do boat-building,” he said. “Wood boats are kind of my passion. I’ll do restoration. I’m an antique boat restorer, as a continuation from restoring antique cars in the past. We’ll do regular, normal things the marina did, in maintenance and repair. But I’m not getting into boat-building, as Clarence did from scratch. There is not that much demand for it anymore.” Bowman has 35 to 40 slips, and almost all are rented. He also has several boats he is scheduled to work on and restore this winter. Currently, he has no plans to expand his slips in the immediate future. He is more focused on “freshening up” the piers, and updating and adding electric. Bowman wants to bring the marina up to his standards. The Boathouse Marina is also adding a Captains’ Room, and updating the existing bath and shower, as well as adding another. Eventually, the large hanger on the right side of the store will be turned into a museum and showroom for antique and restored boats. Bowman said that the focus is changing to modern boating supplies; servicing, electronics, and the more advanced things that have come to be involved with boating now. “We’ve got paints, electronics and safety items such as flares and life vests,” he said. “In the past, it was a big deal to have a VHF Radio, 40 years ago. Now they want everything imaginable from GPS to radar, to every little electronic wizardry that you could imagine,” Bowman said with a laugh. Some of the repairs and maintenance being offered include bottom painting, some fiberglass repairs, varnishing and interior repairs. “It’s been fun, digging stuff out,” Bowman said. “Some trash, some treasures, and bunch of it fits in-between.” Bowman said he is trying to make it a fun place. There are lounge chairs for people to sit in and talk about the glass-bottom dingy on display in the front of the store, or they can let their pups romp with the owner’s dog, Hershey. Hershey is a sea-faring dog like his master, and goes everywhere Bow-

Kittrell's Chicken and Ribs

man does. If you come upon the front door locked during business hours, it’s most likely that Bowman is out back working on boats, and Stilling is probably out getting lunch with her dog. If you break something or your boat is sinking, you can call (804) 761-6620, and he will try to get someone to meet you for emergencies. Bowman wants to make everyone comfortable. “I have enjoyed being in Colonial Beach,” he said. “It’s a nice place to get away from Richmond. I like the old things. I guess it’s because I am getting there.” Bowman added, when asked if he worked for Stanford he said, “I never worked for him, I just was a friend!”

When guidelines become enforceable Unless a developer voluntarily includes these guidelines in the site plan design, and the building and zoning office approves that site plan design, these guidelines are not enforceable. According to a building and zoning staff report, “The design guidelines are just that — they are guidelines and represent what the town citizens want to see in terms of future development of the town.” Staff also hopes “for current property and business owners these are voluntary, and hopefully provide a framework to guide them when they make improvements to their properties.” Finally, the guidelines are divided into three categories: general standards that apply town-wide throughout Colonial Beach, standards that apply only to the historic resort commercial area, and standards set for property owners on The Point in Colonial Beach. The Point is the southernmost end of town, and includes all properties located south of Boundary Street. The commission will hold a public hearing on the guidelines at the Nov. 7 planning commission meeting. Af-

ter a commission vote, the guidelines will progress to the council level for discussions, a public hearing, and a vote from council to include the guidelines in the town’s comprehensive plan. Article 9 Commercial Residential Zoning District This ordinance concerns permitted and accessory uses allowed in the Commercial Residential District located along the north side of Washington Avenue, from its corner at Boundary Street to Colonial Avenue, along Colonial up to Garfield Avenue, along Garfield to First Street, and along First Street up to McKinney Boulevard (Route 205). It includes arts and crafts stores, bed and breakfasts, service businesses, libraries, schools, daycares, restaurants, small retail establishments and single-family dwellings, to name a few. Accessory uses include things like sheds, ATMs, fences, antennae and other items that are required for utilities, storage and privacy. The ordinance also lists what uses can be conducted after obtaining a CUP (conditional use permit). Some of these uses include adult daycare, assisted living facilities, commercial parking, convenience stores, night clubs, hotels and theaters, just to name a few. One item that has been removed from the ordinance was any reference to bookstores, of any kind. During the drafting process, the issue of adult bookstores came into

consideration. At previous meetings, one of the changes, previously discussed, concerned the allowance of adult bookstores. Commissioner Kent Rodeheaver was particularly concerned that if the allowance was left in the ordinance, it might attract such a business to be located in a residential area, which he believes is not consistent with what the town’s citizens would want. At the Sept. 5 meeting, Mitchell said, “We took out the reference to bookstores, because it created a constitutional issue. You have to identify bookstores as being adult or notadult.” Mitchell said that he would be more comfortable having the town attorney address that reference. Mitchell said that originally, it stated that bookstores were allowed, “excluding adult bookstores.” “I’m not sure, constitutionally, if you can exclude one type of bookstore and not another, without having some other type of ordinance to disallow it,” Mitchell said. After some blushing discussions, the ordinance remained, with no reference to bookstores of any kind, either as a permitted/primary use or as a CUP. The public hearing went swiftly since the only attendee was Mayor Mike Ham, who had no comments. The three attending members, Ed Grant, Chairwoman Maureen Holt and Kent Rodeheaver voted unanimously to send Article 9 on to the council for discussion, a public hearing and a vote.

Schools: Parent concerns From page 1 as changes to the Employee Health Benefits. School Director of Finance J.D. Martin, asked the school board to postpone a vote on approval of the Virginia Local Disability Program Resolution. Martin feels, and Chairman Trivett agreed, that the board needs more information before voting on it. Martin assured

the board that no employees at this time would be affected if the vote were held off. The board also approved the sale of a 1992 Ford school bus. Tunstall reported to the board that the bus is currently being housed at Headleys Diesel And Auto . The bus has been broke down for some time and repairing the bus would not be feasible.

2013 Drifter Homecoming

Leonard Banks

The 2013 Colonial Beach High School Homecoming game ended in triumph for both players and homecoming contestants.

Drifters defeat Panthers for homecoming Leonard Banks Sports Editor On Friday evening, Black & Gold fever filled the stands and the fences at Monroe Park, in Colonial Beach. Redemption has its spoils, and the Drifters’ 62-8 homecoming victory over the Charles City Panthers has given Colonial Beach a renewed source of motivation, as the season moves into the second phase. On both sides of the ball, the Drifters were dominant. While their offense compiled 375 total yards, including never having to punt, the Drifters defense had a field day against their visitors from the south. Along with three interceptions that led to touchdowns, they limited the Panthers to 8 points, 155 total yards, two sacks, and a special teams play that resulted in a touchdown. The win improved the Drifters record to 2-3, while the Panthers (0-5) continue to suffer seasonal woes. After a tough 1-3 start, Drifter head coach Scott Foster had found

a way to motivate his team, as they prepare to make a push for postseason play. “Our team played well, and we needed this game,” Foster said. “We knew we were battle tested, after coming off games featuring Franklin, Sussex, and King George. I told them to keep the same intensity that you had in those three games, and it will pay off.” In the first quarter, the Drifters marched 82 yards on their opening drive for the game’s first score. Dez’John Parker scored on a two-yard pass from Nick Graves. Lamar Lucas (5-52 yards), and Graves (4-26 yards) set up the touchdown. Lucas later finished the game with 11 carries for 88 yards. Graves ended the game with two passing touchdowns (8-5-90), and one touchdown reception. He also rushed for 38 yards on six carries. The Drifters ended the first quarter with a nine play, 93-yard drive that ended inside the Panthers’ red-zone. Shamar Shanks opened the second quarter with a four-yard touchdown run. After the missed two-point

conversion, the Drifters led, 14-0. On the ensuing Panther possession, Drifter lineman Brandon Buzby stripped JaQuane Wyatt of the ball, causing the game’s first turnover. The Drifters quickly capitalized on the Panther fumble, with a Nick Graves nine-yard touchdown reception from Shanks. In the face of a 20-0 Drifter lead, the Panthers offense continued to sputter. To make matters worse for Charles City, with 39 seconds left in the half, Drifter linebacker, Dez’John Parker intercepted a pass from Khairi Wyatt, and promptly ran it back from 14 yards into the end zone. During halftime, the Charles City Panther Marching Band, and the crowning of Kaitlyn Proffitt (2013 Drifter homecoming queen), Monte Gould (2013 Drifter homecoming king) kept fans entertained. At the start of the third quarter, the Panthers’ woes continued. On fourth down, Panther punter Michael Callahan kicked the ball into one of his teammates, where Drifter

linebacker, Cameron Headley alertly picked the ball and scored from 13-yards out to extend the Drifters score to 36-0. With 8:14 left in the third quarter, the Panthers managed to avoid the shutout with a touchdown reception from Khairi Wyatt to James Atkins. On the Drifters following drive, it took them three minutes, two seconds, and seven plays to score on a two-yard touchdown reception to Mike Mothershead from Graves. The score was set up by a 31-yard run from Shanks. Although the score was visibly out of reach, the Drifters defense came up huge with two-back-toback interceptions that resulted in touchdowns, from Shanks (47-yards), and LaShaad Thompson (43-yards). With less than four minutes in the game, AJ Phillips completed the Drifters’ scoring with a one-yard touchdown. On Friday, the Drifters will travel to play unbeaten Rappahannock (50). Game time is 7 p.m.

Senior Davon Hamilton, #4, scored on a 47-yard pass from quarterback Trey Brown to ice the Eagles victory.

W&L crushes Spotsy, 33-16 By Richard Leggitt Coach Antron Yates’ Washington & Lee Eagles won their homecoming game against Spotsylvania, 33-16 on Friday, to highlight the Montross Fall Festival celebration.   The Eagles got some help from the Knights, who fumbled away the football four times in the first quarter.  But Yates’ young team played well in taking advantage of the Spotsylvania mistakes. By defeating a 3A team in what was regarded as an upset, the Eagles increased their changes of getting a playoff opportunity as they get set to begin Northern Neck District play. “It was nice to finally come out and start quickly,” said Coach Yates. “It was awesome for us to be able to

capitalize quickly off of those Spotsy mistakes.” “The last few games, we have not capitalized.  We finally seized the momentum. What we preached all week as a coaching staff is to finally put together a full game. When we play all four quarters, we are a tough team to beat,” Yates said. “We had a few standouts. On defense, Keith Johnson and Davon Hamilton had a great game. The normal, every week hardhat kids, Markeyse Thompson, Kaleel Pratt, Alex Lane, and Ryan Taylor continue to show up for work,” Yates said. “On offense, Trey Brown did another great job at quarterback, with only one blemish,” the coach said.   “Everybody chipped in collectively to put the points on the board.”

Spotsylvania had early game difficulties handling the shotgun snap, and the resulting turnovers and Eagles’ scores gave W&L a 20-0 lead that proved decisive. The Eagles’ offense behind Brown, who was 11 of 19 for 191 yards with one pick, maintained their early advantage. Brown, a junior, nailed down the victory in the fourth quarter with a 47-yard pass to senior Davon Hamilton.  Spotsylvania gained 200 yards on the ground behind the power running of Charles Petitt in the losing effort. Brown was announced as W&L Homecoming King during halftime festivities. Senior Alexa Weeks was Homecoming Queen. The Eagles are now 2 and 3 for the season as they prepare to enter district play.  W&L is away at Lancaster Friday.

Thrilled with her runners’ performance, Foxes cross-country head coach Cathy Binders said, “Senior night is always a happy and sad occasion. It is the long goodbye for athletes I have coached since seventh grade. Watching them mature and grow as runners and young adults is a great honor.” After years of hard work, and building the crosscountry team and course into a one of the best programs in the area, Binder finally enjoying the fruits of her labors. “I would also like to thank the two families that will be leaving us after many years of hard work designing, building and maintaining our cross country course,” Binder said. “Numerous hours these parents have spent helping to raise money, carrying loads of dirt and digging up stumps.  I appreciate their hard work and dedication to not only their own athletes, but to the team as a whole.” On Wednesday, the Foxes travel to Spotsylvania High School. The Conference 22 Regional CrossCountry Tournament will take place at Chancellor High School, on Wednesday, Nov. 6.

NN Rivermen advance in MDFL playoffs Savanna Cramer In MDFL (Mason-Dixon Football League) news, the playoffs started this past weekend where the Northern Neck Rivermen hosted the Virginia Titans in a hard fought battle of a ‘win, or go home’ game. The Rivermen came out victorious over the Titans with a 14-12 victory this past Saturday night. The Rivermen started off with the ball and made it smoothly downfield all the way to their 30-yard line. Quarterback Walt Covington was looking for wide receiver Mike Howard for an intended touchdown, but was denied for an interception by a Titan. An easy 11-yard pass, and the Titans were the first ones to put the scoring up on the board; making the score 6-0. Their extra point was no good. The Rivermen came back with

a touchdown, which made it a tied game for a moment. Kicker Barrett Hollingsworth came out to make the extra point good, and the score 7-0. In the third quarter, the Rivermen were down by a touchdown, and the clock was ticking by faster and faster. The ball was snapped back to Covington. Covington, under pressure, found Tim Short for a 31yard complete pass for a touchdown. The extra point was good. From then on, it was all defense. With a minute left in the game, the Titans were making it downfield, and it was not looking good for the Rivermen at all. With 30 seconds left on the clock, the Titans’ quarterback had the ball looking for a touchdown. He was denied by a Rivermen interception to make the game over. The final score was 1412, and the Rivermen will move on to play Arbutus Big Red in the North Conference Championship, this Saturday. Game time is 7 p.m.

Drifters and Trojans battle in classic area volleyball match passing errors to win 25-19. Game two, junior varsity From the start of game two, it was apparent that the Trojans were having communication problems, as they struggled to pass and put the ball in play. After an ace by Trojan setter Kameron Duncan, it was downhill for the Trojans. The Drifters began pounding the Trojans with kills from Sariah Ndiaye and MacKenzie-Paige Monroe, which led to a 10-3 run. Throughout the next 13 exchanges, the Trojans victimized themselves with passing errors that resulted in a 17-9 Drifter lead. Essex middle hitter Claire Wilmore ignited a 6-4 Trojan run that ended with a 21-13 Drifter lead, but the attempt to rally proved futile. Although Essex scored three additional points on a Drifter serving and two passing errors, the Drifters closed the game out on four Trojan passing miscues to win the game 25-18, and match 2-0.

The Drifters responded with a kill from Tamra Ruczynski and three Trojan passing errors. Collectively,

This week we have an interesting historical anomaly in that the owner of these two pieces of Staffordshire, which he purchased separately over 30 years ago, has English pottery depicting one of Englandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatest enemies, Napoleon Bonaparte. Both are in excellent condition, and are Henry Lane part of his Napoleonia colHull lection.

Napoleon Bonaparte was Englandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatest enemy prior to Adolf Hitler. That British forces fought him for two decades until his ultimate defeat at Waterloo, Belgium, in June 1815, did not keep the potters from recognizing that they had a ready market, particularly in America, for items with his image on them. The bust of Napoleon was done in concert with one of Alexander I, the Emperor of Russia, and usually they were sold as a pair, the twofold reference being to the Treaty of Tilsit in 1807, when the two

Europe saved,â&#x20AC;? meaning that in his foolish invasion of Russia Napoleon decimated his forces to such an extent that the rest of Europe had the opportunity to regroup and defeat him at Waterloo three years later. The standing figurine is worth $100; it is a nice example, but somewhat crudely molded. The bust is a fine piece of pottery, excellently molded and painted, and is worth $350. It is one of the best busts that I have seen, and could bring even more at a good auction. Happy Antiquing!

This week we have an interesting historical anomaly in that the owner of these two pieces of Staffordshire, which he purchased separately over 30 years ago, has English pottery depicting one of Englandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatest enemies, Napoleon Bonaparte. Both are in excellent condition, and are Henry Lane part of his Napoleonia colHull lection. The Staffordshire potters were eager to make wares that would sell, thus images of the likes Napoleon, George Washington and Benjamin

Franklin, appeared on all types of figurines, tablewares, and plaques. These two are typical of the production of the second quarter of the 19th century. Napoleon Bonaparte was Englandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatest enemy prior to Adolf Hitler. That British forces fought him for two decades until his ultimate defeat at Waterloo, Belgium, in June 1815, did not keep the potters from recognizing that they had a ready market, particularly in America, for items with his image on them. The bust of Napoleon was done in concert with one of Alexander I, the Emperor of Russia, and usually they were sold as a pair, the twofold reference being to the Treaty of Tilsit in 1807, when the two

emperors agreed to divide Europe, juxtaposed five years later against the French invasion of Russia. On the bust of Alexander often one finds the inscription, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Moscow burnt. Europe saved,â&#x20AC;? meaning that in his foolish invasion of Russia Napoleon decimated his forces to such an extent that the rest of Europe had the opportunity to regroup and defeat him at Waterloo three years later. The standing figurine is worth $100; it is a nice example, but somewhat crudely molded. The bust is a fine piece of pottery, excellently molded and painted, and is worth $350. It is one of the best busts that I have seen, and could bring even more at a good auction. Happy Antiquing!

This year I was hoping that I would kill a big buck. We went to a friend’s house to try and kill a deer. The man that lives there always rides his property on a Gator, and the deer get scared away, but return in a short time after the Gator passes. He told us to ride the Gator out to the back field, because that is what the deer are used to. My brother, Cole, drove us out to the field on the Gator and dropped us off, then went into his own blind with my other brother, Jack, and my mom. We set up at the base of a big oak tree as if we were turkey hunting and used a small camouflage ground blind. After getting comfortable, we settled in for the wait. While waiting, we were surrounded by squirrels, and I got an itchy finger to take a few. But Dad said, “You have an expensive slug in that gun which would ruin the squirrel and end our deer hunt.” After a short wait, a yearling walked out of the woods at about 40 yards. I wanted to shoot it, but we don’t shoot yearlings. We enjoyed watching her feed until she walked out of sight. About 30 minutes later, a mature doe and two fawns came out on our right side, and again I wanted to shoot, but we don’t shoot

does with fawns, because we don’t want the fawns to be orphans. After they left the field, two mature does walked out in front of us at about the same 40-yard distance, so my dad said I could shoot either one. As I was trying to aim at the doe on the left, I moved a little too much, and the deer spooked and ran off. After they ran off, I kind of lost hope

that there would be any more deer for me to shoot. On the right side of us, there was a herd of doe, and I really wanted to shoot one. But it was too far, and I probably couldn’t hit it. So we texted my brothers, Cole & Jack, who were sitting in a blind with my mom and were much closer to the deer, so we told them to shoot one. Then my

brother, Cole, shot, but at first we thought he missed, so they walked over to look for blood. He didn’t see any blood, so then my dad went to look, and he looked in the woods with my brother, Jack, and found the doe with a perfect hit right behind the shoulder. I walked over and looked at the deer and was wishing I killed one. My dad dragged the deer farther into the woods to field dress it. While dad was doing that, I walked over to the edge of the field to look for more deer. Then I started to pray that another deer would walk out. As soon as I looked up, a group of deer walked out of the woods on the edge of the field about 200 yards away. I slowly got up to walk to my dad, and I told him there is a group of deer at the edge of the field. He said that it is too far for me to shoot. He then said, “Go over to the edge of the woods and watch the deer and tell me if they get any closer.” I watched, but they didn’t come any closer. I told my dad they are not getting any closer. By then he was done field dressing the deer, and he said we can try to sneak up on him through the woods. We got to an opening where I was close enough to shoot. I thought I saw a four- point buck, but he was actually a six-point. When he turned broadside, I aimed right behind his shoulder and shot. That one missed the deer completely, and he just looked up, then kept eating. I loaded another shell, and when he was broadside again, I shot, but it didn’t kill him, so I had to shoot one more time, and this one dropped him. And that is how I killed my first deer.

Outdoor Report Mark and Missy Fike Fishing was good again this week. Perhaps the heat got them going again. Hunting was tough, with very few deer arrowed, that we heard of. Hot, still woods make for tough hunting. Add in few acorns, and things can be interesting. Rappahannock River Ken’s Tackle in Spotsylvania reported good smallmouth action in the pools upriver. Some fish topped 20 inches. Downriver, the striper were hitting near Hopyard. We continue to hear that bass fishing on the river is very good. Cranks and plastics continue to work equally well. Crappie started to school-up and are hitting minnows. Potomac River Winter Harbor reported that squid is the key bait for perch and catfish. Small spot and small croaker were also caught this week. Striper were hitting bucktails this week, but not many were caught on spoons, according to customers. Mark Fike

Squirrels are short on acorns and hickory nuts, so they are now eating pine cones.

Inland waters Motts Run: The fishing has been quite good for bluegills and small bass. Channel catfish were hot on chicken livers. Anglers were fishing deep to catch fish in the clear water.Local ponds are giving up nice crappie this past week. Use minnows. Saltwater Cobia are numerous around the CBBT and further out, and some nice spot and puppy drum are caught in the Virginia Beach area, too. Red drum are still prowling

the lower Bay, and flounder fishing has been excellent in the usual haunts in the lower Bay. Some drum have been caught in the surf, as well. Captain Ryan Rogers (804580-0245) reported incredible bluefish action, a shark and a lot of rockfish for the Virginia season opener. A few puppy drum are still around, too. Hunting No deer, that we heard of, were checked, but then again check stations are few now, and more hunters are checking deer by phone. It was HOT on Saturday for the opening of archery season. Squirrels and deer are finding acorns a tough nut to find this season. The squirrels are now busy eating pinecones! Seasons Dove: Sept. 2—Oct. 14, 15 birds per day.

My hunting adventure Ben Coffey On the youth hunting day this past Saturday, my grandfather, William (Billy) France, took me hunting on a friend’s farm in Westmoreland County. I chose to use the gun that I was most comfortable with — the Remington Magnum 1100 (12 gauge) with 3-inch shells. I was hoping to get a buck or a doe that day. Well I did get a buck, however, it wasn’t the one I would have liked to get. My grandfather said there was a nice doe coming towards our blind. As I prepared to shoot, I realized it wasn’t as big as we had thought. Unfortunately we couldn’t see the spikes

My first big buck Carter Lewis September 28 was going to be my last youth day hunt. Mr. Larry Carr and I went hunting. I was using his 12-gauge slug gun on my great grandparents’, Buck and Hazel Jones’ farm. We headed out at 3:30 in the afternoon and sat in a tree stand overlooking an 11-acre soybean field. It didn’t take long before a young doe came into the field. She fed a bit and then bedded down in some tall grass on the edge of the field. She later walked off into the woods. We didn’t see much after that, just a fox running across the field and a groundhog. Then a doe and two fawns walked right under our tree stand. They fed in the field, just 10 yards in front of me. We watched them as they crunched on soybeans, and the fawns played in the beans. Suddenly, I spotted movement on the other side of the field. There was a spike rubbing on a sapling, 120 yards away! Right beside him, I saw a 6-pointer walking out of the woods, while 5 does were feeding in the field. I decided that I was going to shoot the 6-pointer, but he was 120 yards away, so I waited for him to come closer. As he slowly crossed the field toward me, a spike was running around chasing the does. The 6-pointer stayed behind them, taking his time. Then suddenly, when they were 90 yards away, I heard gunfire from across the highway. The deer all stopped. The doe and

fawns in front of me ran off. I grunted at the 6-pointer, and he stopped. He was 60 yards away. When he stopped, a doe stopped too, and her neck was right over his vitals so I didn’t shoot. I watched them run off, and I was disappointed but decided to wait a little longer. It wasn’t too long before a nice 5-pointer walked out. He was in range, so I shot. I wasn’t sure if I hit him, though. I put my gun down, and Mr. Carr and I walked across the field and looked for him in the woods. We didn’t find any trace of him, and I felt certain that I had missed him. Across the field I saw a huge 8-pointer 10 yards in front of the tree stand we had just left! I dropped down and crawled over to my gun. The 8-pointer stared right at me but kept feeding. I picked up the gun, then backed up just inside the tree line. I steadied up against a tree and shot. He jumped up and ran 20 yards into the beans and fell over. I ran straight to him. He was a nice buck. He was 15 inches wide. We took him out of the field and brought him to Mr. Carr’s house. Mr. Fike came over to help and take photographs. Then we caped him. I’m glad I got to kill an awesome 8-pointer on my last youth day hunt. The hunt itself was awesome. It was one of my best deer hunts I’ve ever had, and I can’t wait to get him mounted, as he is my biggest buck to date. I love hunting on my grandparents’ farm, and I hope I can hunt there for years to come.

on his head. As I was getting out of the blind I heard my grandfather say, “Uh-oh.” He realized we shot a button buck (spike), which we wanted to avoid. When we were in the blind, I was nervous about shooting because I’m used to standing and shooting. I was scared that the chair would flip over, but after I took the shot, I didn’t have a worry in the world. As a matter of fact, the gun didn’t really feel like it kicked much. There were three of us hunting on the same farm that day. I’m very happy I got my first deer, and no one left the farm emptyhanded that day. I’m glad I got the opportunity to go hunting with my grandfather.
