Pulling all the pieces together for YOU.
Don’t Settle for Less Your Search for a Title Company Buying a home may be the single most important investment you will make. It is critical that you understand the process and your options so that you can make an informed and rational decision on every aspect of the home buying process. Your choice of a real estate agent, loan officer and title company is as important as your choice of which home to buy. Finding the right professionals who understand your needs and preferences can make the difference in whether your experience is smooth and efficient or lengthy and difficult. It’s worth the effort to do your research - talk to your friends and business associates for referrals. Your real estate agent can also refer you to a Lender and title company with whom they have had successful transactions and provide the excellent service you deserve. At Foote Title Group we welcome your questions. Not only are we happy to answer any questions regarding our fees and services, but we can also help you understand or solve most of the problems which occur during the home buying process. When choosing a title/settlement company, don’t just compare prices - compare services. Most title companies will offer the basics. Title companies who only offer the basic services may appear cheaper - but you should ask yourself whether your best interest will be served by cutting corners? •
Will the title company work with your Lender to avoid scheduling problems, to make sure all title and survey requirements are met, and to resolve any issues at settlement?
Will the title company work with your real estate agent to ensure compliance with the sales contract and alert them of any potential settlement problems?
Will the title company work with you to answer questions you have about the closing documents or the settlement process and provide you with your final settlement charges as soon as possible before settlement?

Career & Technical Education KGHS offers students the foundations for all careers Make sure your child is prepared for the Workplace through Career & Technical Education! As the doors open for another school year in King George County, King George High School (KGHS) has over 10 Career and Technical Education (CTE) teachers providing 40 different courses that offer 14 opportunities for Completer status and recognition. CTE educates students to be college- and career- ready and prepares them for high-wage, high-demand career fields. The rigor and relevance CTE courses offer students are guided by the Course Competencies which are linked to core class SOLs. These competencies are tracked for success and accomplishment by teachers. This performance-based learning requires the students to obtain knowledge, acquire skills, and develop
work habits and then practice the application of all three in the real world situation. CTE Completer (End of Sequence) students have the opportunity to take National Industry Certification tests that provide students with additional credentials to their high school diploma. Students completing the required series of classes to become a Career and Technical Education (CTE) program completer are eligible to take an industry certification test during their senior year. Industry Certification Tests are available in the following career areas: Computer Information Systems, Design Multimedia Web Technology, Drafting, HVAC, Marketing, Sports Marketing, Sheet Metal, TV Video Production, Teacher Cadets, Welding, and Workplace Readiness. The industry certification tests are a state or nationally recognized test that can help a student enter the workforce immediately after high school. CTE programs are investing in students’ lives with the latest technology and skills by linking with local and regional businesses that will prepare them to become successful employees as well as future leaders. Many of the CTE classes

and students at KGHS partner with businesses through class assignments, operations research and advertising projects, cooperative education (Co-Op) training stations, and sponsorships. From a national standpoint, CTE is a major part of the solution to myriad national economic and workforce problems, such as high school dropout rates, a weakened economy, global competitiveness and massive layoffs. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, nearly one-third of the fastest growing occupations will require an associate’s degree or a post-secondary vocational certificate. Recent research published by the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce shows that 4.7 million new workers will be needed by post-secondary certificates and credentials, such as those which can be obtained at KGHS by 2018, but we will

This is both a challenging and exciting time for Germanna Community College. Community colleges have never played such an important role. Affordability and flexibility during tough times, combined with soaring costs at four-year colleges and universities, have made Germanna and other community colleges critical to the recovery of our local and national economies. People in our area need jobs. To get them, they must be trained for careers in science, engineering, technology and health care that didn’t exist a few years ago. The fact that Germanna remains a bargain in quality higher education, and that it can pivot quickly and strategically prepare students to fill the region’s “skills gap” makes it a key to unlocking the potential of the area’s workforce. In the fall of 2013, Germanna began piloting classes in partnership with the University of Mary Washington at UMW’s Dahlgren campus. The classes are part of the college’s Engineering curriculum. Students who earn an Associate of Science degree in Engineering at Germanna and transfer to a four-year college or university are on a less expensive path to a Bachelor

of Science degree in Engineering. A year at Germanna costs about onethird as much as a year at a typical fouryear college or university. Students who earn their two-year associate’s degree at GCC, then take advantage of the college’s guaranteed transfer agreement, can save as much as tens of thousands of dollars. Germanna has guaranteed transfer agreements with more than 30 four-year colleges and universities. GCC’s Center for Workforce &
Community Education offers a wide range of courses, seminars, workshops, consulting and training services. It works directly with businesses to assess their needs. It quickly and affordably prepares students for jobs in the real world. The Center offers everything from basic computer literacy skills to high-end network certification preparation and from phlebotomy technician to CDL, A+ and Net+ CADD technician and Electrician Apprentice training

Germanna’s associate’s degree program in engineering works with the University of Virginia and Virginia Tech to make four-year diplomas in that field more affordable. GCC’s well-regarded nursing and Allied Health program recently doubled the number of students it’s preparing to fill our area’s growing need for health care professionals. The college’s highly regarded nursing program is based at the nearby Locust Grove Campus, featuring
a Virtual Hospital where students learn from award-winning faculty members and cutting-edge simulators that mimic human illnesses and responses to treatment. Students may earn bachelors and master’s degrees through TELETECHNET, a partnership between Germanna and Old Dominion University that features online “distance” learning as well as classes at the Fredericksburg Campus. Dual Enrollment allows high school
students to save time and money by earning college credit at their own schools. Some students have earned their associate’s degrees before graduating from high school. GCC’s 24-credit Automotive Technician certificate includes training in the ASE areas of engine repair, suspension and steering, brakes, and electrical systems. The 26-credit Automotive Diagnostician certificate includes training in the ASE areas of automotive transmission, manual
drive train, climate control, and entire performance. Germanna offers students entering college from high school a chance to mature and determine what their interests are before leaving home. And it offers “non-traditional,” older students greater accessibility through flexible class schedules, online “distance” learning and affordability that allow them to earn degrees and certifications while working and raising a family.

Chartered in 1970, Rappahannock Community College opened for classes at the Glenns Campus in Fall 1971, and at the Warsaw campus in Fall 1973. It serves an area covering 2,459 square miles and twelve counties of eastern Virginia— larger than the state of Delaware. RCC’s student population continues to grow. Enrollment for the academic year of 2011-12 increased by 0.9 percent over the previous year, a greater rate of growth than 15 of the other 22 member institutions of the Virginia Community College System. A longer view shows RCC’s enrollment climbing more than 39 percent in the seven years between 2005 and 2012, reaching 5092 students at last count, of whom 404 were King George residents. The college’s two primary locations comprise 100 acres at Glenns, just inside the northern border of Gloucester County, and 117 acres in downtown Warsaw, the county seat of Richmond County. Each campus includes science and technical laboratories, shops, classrooms, computer labs, administrative and support services, a library, a student lounge and recreational facilities. Recently completed renovations have given both campuses new math and science wings, as well as new student

commons areas—specially designed for comfort and convenience—that make RCC more “user-friendly” than ever. In addition, the Kilmarnock Center in Lancaster County (midway between the Glenns and Warsaw Campuses), which opened in January 2012, offers all the services and many classes that are available at the other locations, as does RCC’s long-established satellite site at King George High School, and a brandnew site at King William High School. The King George site accommodates students at the northern end of RCC’s service region with a shorter drive time. By combining on-site classes with RCC’s online distance education program, King George students can take courses or earn a degree without ever leaving the county. The geographical size of RCC’s service area makes distance-learning options a must, and in this field RCC maintains a standing in the VCCS system far out of proportion to its student head-count, offering a wide selection of online, interactive video classroom, and hybrid (online/classroom) courses. Shared courses offered through Northern Virginia Community College’s Extended Learning Institute—French, German, Japanese, business and real estate law, and
university physics, to name a few—are also available. The site supervisor at RCC-King George, Karen Turner, is an RCC graduate and an area native, hailing from nextdoor Westmoreland County. Turner serves the King George community and promotes the college’s interests through public relations, student activities, and enrollment. She also serves as liaison with the county’s public school system and with Dahlgren’s Naval Surface Warfare Center, which calls on RCC to provide classes meeting the needs of its military and civilian employees.
RCC’s Associate of Arts and Sciences (AA&S) degree is designed for students who wish to transfer to a four-year school. Most of these colleges readily accept the credits earned by RCC students. Arts and Sciences graduates may also take advantage of the over 40 Guaranteed Admission Agreements that RCC maintains with outstanding public and private four-year colleges in Virginia. Specializations in business administration, pre-engineering, psychology/social work, and teacher education are available for students who plan to transfer to a bachelor’s degree

One-year certificates in Accounting, Administrative Support Technology, General Education, Law Enforcement, and Practical Nursing, as well as 21 career studies certificates, are also available to individuals seeking enhanced job skills and marketability. As new educational needs in the community become apparent, the college continues to devise new programs to meet these needs. In addition, the “Career Switchers” program offers professionals all over Virginia the chance to use a bachelor’s degree and five or more years of work experience in a math-, science-, or foreign language-related field as a “fast track” to a teacher’s license. Sixteen weeks of training readies these students for a one-year teaching experience under the guidance of a mentor, which leads to renewable five-year licensure.

Northern Neck Tourism Commission King George County is part of the five-county Northern Neck Tourism Commission (NNTC). A public-private partnership and economic development initiative of the Northern Neck Chesapeake Bay Region Partnership, the NNTC is governed by 15 members, appointed by the Boards of Supervisors. Currently representing King George on the NNTC are Ruby Brabo, Board of Supervisors, Dahlgren District, and Michelle Darnell, proprietor of Belle Grove Plantation Bed and Breakfast. The third representative is the King George Economic Development Director. Supervisor Ruby Brabo observed, "I am extremely enthusiastic about our participation with the NNTC and the opportunities for the many tourism stakeholders in King George. The tourism attractions of our county range from outdoor recreation to a farm winery, history, and local eateries." NNTC assists in developing goals and strategies to help both localities and the business community to maximize regional tourism potential, attract more visitors and improve the visitor experience. King George’s tourism assets currently include the birthplace of James Madison, which is newly accessible to the public as Belle Grove Plantation Bed & Breakfast, Oak Crest Winery in Dahlgren, Caledon State Park,
numerous historic buildings, three museums, including the Dahlgren Heritage Museum, on Route 301 at the foot of the Harry Nice Bridge, and a number of lodging facilities and restaurants. The Northern Neck Heritage Area Designation Study, conducted by the National Park Service, is expected to be completed by the Spring of 2014. Designation as a National Heritage Area will bring attention to the qualities of the Northern Neck that make it worthy of national distinction, such as its working waterfronts, historical attractions, family farms and scenic viewsheds. Part of the Northern Neck Tourism Commission’s activities entail making these assets accessible to visitors. Earlier this year, through funding from the Northern Neck Chesapeake Bay Region Partnership, a watermen’s heritage training program was offered, which resulted in the development of on-water tours of local rivers and creeks with working watermen. For those interested in getting out on the water and experiencing oystering, crabbing and fishing with a waterman, a list of participating watermen is available at northernneckheritage.com. To extend the tourism season here, next February, over President’s Day and Valentine’s Day weekend, Winterfest 2014 in the Northern Neck will celebrate recreation in the Northern Neck in winter, and the Presidential legacy of the region where three Presidents were born. Events will include winery tours along the Chesapeake Bay Wine Trail and a chocolate and wine event at Ingleside
Winery with a Valentine’s Day theme. Outdoor events will feature geocaching throughout the region, the Dahlgren Railroad Heritage Trail half-marathon and guided bird and tree walks at Belle Isle State Park. Tidewater Oyster Growers Association (TOGA) will be part of the celebration with oyster-growing clean-water demonstration tanks at Westmoreland State Park. In 2011, tourism spending in King George County was over $19 million dollars, and in the Northern Neck region, over $233 million. In addition to advertising in national and regional publications, NNTC promotes the Northern Neck though brochure placement in Virginia Welcome Centers and at visitors centers throughout the Commonwealth. NNTC participates in a consumer travel program where the brochure is represented at business and leisure travel shows throughout the East Coast. NNTC maintains a website, northernneck.org, which hosts a region-wide calendar of events, and engages visitors through its facebook page, Northern Neck Tourism. Restaurants, lodging, retail and attractions are listed in the brochure at an annual cost of $125. For more information, please contact NNTC at 804.333.1919 or email: nntc @northernneck.org.

Harry Nice Bridge
Preliminary engineering funded for Harry W. Nice Bridge rebuilding project Phyllis Cook The Harry W. Nice Bridge Improvement Project is soon to be entering its second phase, with the allocation of $6.1 million in funding for preliminary engineering of the major bridge construction project. In addition, the Maryland Transit Authority’s (MDTA) is also programming funding for future maintenance on the existing bridge with $13.2 million identified in fiscal years 2014 and 2015. In addition to that being good news for Maryland, which owns and operates the 1.7-mile two-lane bridge, it is also good news for King George residents and anyone else who regularly or even occasionally uses the bridge.
The Governor Harry W. Nice Memorial Bridge connects Maryland and Virginia, from Charles County, Md., to King George. The bridge is operated by the Maryland Transit Authority and is completely in Maryland.
PRELIMINARY ENGINEERING The next phase of the project will be the preliminary engineering stage for fiscal years 2014 and 2015. Work has been identified for such activities as geotechnical work related to ordnance detection and removal. This will be the next step toward eventual construction of a planned new bridge slated to replace the nearly 73-yearold, two-lane Governor Harry W. Nice
Memorial Bridge across the Potomac River on U.S. 301, which connects Maryland and Virginia, from Charles County, Md., to King George. The existing bridge opened in December 1940, with President Franklin D. Roosevelt taking part in the facility’s groundbreaking two years earlier, in 1938. The most recent available traffic count in fiscal year 2011 put the volume at 6.8 million vehicles annually.
The existing bridge has one 11-foot travel lane in each direction with no median separation and no shoulders. The posted speed limit on the bridge varies from 40 to 50 miles per hour. NEPA STUDY APPROVED NOV. 2012 The project had come to a halt at the end of last November, 2012, when a final environmental document was approved by the Federal Highway Administration

Harry Nice Bridge (FHWA). That culminated in the planning phase which began in 2006 and took six years to complete. Funding toward preliminar y engineering being made available is one of the many steps to take place before a new replacement bridge is built. Funding will be needed for final engineering and design, right-of-way acquisition, and then, finally construction
of a new bridge. NEW 4-LANE BRIDGE WITH BIKE/ PEDESTRIAN PATH PLANNED The preferred construction alternate that was selected last year is referred to as Modified Alternate 7. It is ultimately planned to include a new four-lane bridge parallel and to the north of the existing bridge. It will have a twoway barrier-separated bike/pedestrian
path on the south side. In 2012, MDTA estimated the cost of the planned new bridge, along with the subsequent removal of the existing bridge, to be in the range of $833 million to $916 million. $13.2 M FOR MAINTENANCE OF EXISTING BRIDGE In the meantime, while the project is transitioning from its planning stage to the
preliminary engineering stage, the MDTA has also programmed funding for future maintenance on the existing bridge. $13.2 million has been identified in fiscal years 2014 and 2015 to assist in extending the service life of the existing bridge until the preferred alternate can be constructed. That work is expected to include concrete deck repairs, deck sealing, and rehabilitation of the catwalk.

VDOT projects update Phyllis Cook Virginia Department of Transportation’s (VDOT) Northern Neck Residency Administrator David Brown provided a recent quarterly update on road projects in King George. The report was provided at a meeting of the Board of Supervisors on Aug. 6. The update provided information for various roads, including what’s planned for any improvements to primary, secondary and unpaved roads, along with maintenance projects discussed. OWENS INTERSECTION ON DAHLGREN ROAD As announced last May, a project for improvements on Dahlgren Road (Route 206) at its intersection with Owens Drive (Route 624) and Windsor Drive (Route 218) has been approved for $4.2 million in funding. Brown said the project is slated to be advertised for construction in September of this year, with completion estimated
LICENSED & INSURED
for October 2014. The Dahlgren Road/Owens project had been previously funded through the engineering and acquisition phases, with properties acquired from some residents and businesses, to widen the roads at the intersection to provide turn lanes at the intersections, along with provision of additional width for utility easements. The basic thrust of the design for the intersection improvements is to add left turn lanes on Dahlgren Road for vehicles to stack up while waiting to turn onto either Owens Road or Windsor Drive, to keep through-traffic moving. The Board of Supervisors has repeatedly asked for a traffic light at the intersection, but VDOT has continued to indicate that traffic studies do not warrant a light at that location. A future light is promised when the required warrant criteria are met. TRAFFIC SIGNAL FOR INTERSECION AT ROUTES 205 & 218 Brown said a traffic light is planned for the intersection of Route 205 (Ridge Road) and Route 218 (Tetotum Road) due to an increase in traffic volumes. The project is anticipated to be

completed in late 2014, as long as no additional right-of-way is needed to be acquired. The cost of the traffic signal will be funded through VDOT’s highway safety improvement program, with funds to become available in October of this year. That will be followed by engineering work toward the technical design. MACHODOC BRIDGE REPAIRS NEXT YEAR Brown reported that the Machodoc Bridge on Route 218 (Windsor Drive) is scheduled for rehabilitation next year. That project is anticipated to be advertised in May 2014 with completion estimated for January 2015. During the repairs, vehicles will be limited to one lane of traffic during the reconstruction process. Prior to the start of the project, Brown said that VDOT would be advising citizens by a public notices campaign as well as notifying the Dahlgren Base, so that motorists can adjust their traffic patterns during the construction time frame. ST. PAUL’S ROAD IN 2016 Brown reiterated the news that a half-
mile section of St. Pauls Road is the county’s number one priority for paving. He suggested that some funding could be shifted from the Route 625 (Salem Church Road) project to move up the St. Paul’s Road paving to 2016. Supervisors concurred with the suggestion, since the schedule of the Route 625 project would be unaffected, due to the project timing. ROUTE 3 RESURFACING RECENTLY COMPLETED He stated that the resurfacing of Route 3 (Kings Highway) was recently completed, with the eastbound section resurfaced from US 301 to the Westmoreland county line. Brown noted that the westbound section to the Stafford county line had previously been completed. Regarding road paving, Brown stated, “Paving conditions are continuously being evaluated. We do regular road rides each year and our superintendents are out there looking at the conditions of the secondary roads, as well. That is what we use as a basis for identifying the needs, and based upon the available funds, we establish the projects that we can move forward from year to year.”
The bridge over Machodoc Creek on Windsor Drive (SR-218) is slated for work next year.
1-800 FOR ROAD: CALL FOR ROAD REPAIR ISSUES Brown encouraged motorists to assist VDOT in it road maintenance program by using a phone number, 1-800 FOR ROAD, to report such things as potholes, road buckling, and vegetation issues to name a few road problems that may occur, whether in the county or elsewhere in the state. Brown said calling the phone number puts people in contact with VDOT’s citizen call center. Those who call should be prepared to identify the location and the route number of the road and the issue being reported, so that a work order can be created and sent to the area with the responsibility for that maintenance. Those who use the number to report, can be provided the work order number, which provides the ability for follow up, by checking the status online at the VDOT website. Brown strongly encourage citizens to utilize this number to report road issues: 1-800 FOR ROAD.

Want The Best For Your Newborn? Research Shows Breastfeeding Creates Bigger Brains - Why What Your Baby Eats For The First 1,000 Days Is So Important! Doctors, researchers, and parents have always wanted to know how much nutrition in early life affects adults later in life. Can adults overcome poor nutrition in the first few months or years of life or are there consequences to starting off life eating sub-optimal food? Both
epidemiological and animal studies have shown the risk of metabolic syndrome is significantly increased after exposure to suboptimum nutrition during crucial periods of development. Metabolic syndrome is the name for a group of risk factors that raises your risk for heart disease and other health problems, such as diabetes and stroke. What about IQ? According to an article published in Neuroimage (May 28, 2013), “The prevailing consensus from large epidemiological studies posits that early exclusive breastfeeding is associated with improved measures of IQ and cognitive
functioning in later childhood and adolescence. Prior morphometric brain imaging studies support these findings, revealing increased white matter and subcortical gray matter volume, and parietal lobe cortical thickness, associated with IQ in adolescents who were breastfed as infants compared to those who were exclusively formula-fed.” In other words, a majority of researchers believe (based on studies) that breastfed babies have higher IQs than babies who were given formula. A new study from Brown University has found more evidence to the superiority of
breastfeeding over formula. The study used MRIs to look at the brain growth in a sample of children under the age of four. The research found that by age two, babies who had been breastfed exclusively for at least three months had enhanced development in key parts of the brain compared to children who were fed formula exclusively or who were fed a combination of formula and breast milk. The research showed the extra growth was most pronounced in parts of the brain associated with language, emotional function, and cognition. - Shawn Pallotti, DC

Stephanie Andreucci KGFM Market Manager At the King George Farmers’ Market growth is a good thing. The market began with the vision of providing the community with an abundance of resources from local streams, rivers and fields. The goals of the market have expanded to support new producers, advance the e d u c at i o n and availability of fresh local food, and share local talent. With over 14 new vendors joining the market since 2009, including farmers from King George and Westmoreland County as well as bakers, preservers and other specialty food producers there is something for everyone. This past year our “everyone” jumped to a record of 822 total visitors. The market is ecstatic that increased awareness in the market increases the amount of local fruits and vegetables that

enter households every week. The King George Farmers’ Market (along with our partnered markets in Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania under The Farmers Market. co) and the George Washington Regional Planning Commission was previously awarded a Farmers Market Promotion Program (FMPP) by the USDA. This grant proposed to increase revenue for local producers by increasing the access and affordability of local produce to low-income families in accepting SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly food stamps) EBT (Electronic Benefit Transfer) cards and offering incentives for buying fruits and vegetables. This past year The Farmers Market. co and the George Washington Regional Commission were pleased to announce a 2013-2014 grant awarded from the Mary Washington Hospital Community Benefit Fund to continue this work with the SNAP EBT program. This $20,000 grant will help us reach a new goal of reaching 500 new SNAP shoppers among the three markets. “We are building vibrant community Farmers Markets by increasing access and affordability of fresh, local foods for all,” said Elizabeth Borst, Spotsylvania Farmers

L. E. Smoot Memorial Library
The newly renovated and expanded Smoot Library will open soon
Richard Leggitt After a long wait, the newly renovated and expanded L.E. Smoot Memorial Library in King George is scheduled to open soon, possibly as soon as September, according to Library Director Robin Tenney. “It is our hope that the Library will open sometime in September. The library staff is working tirelessly to get the library ready for the Grand Opening, which will be announced soon,” Tenney said. “It has always been our vision that the L. E. Smoot Memorial Library serve as a center for education, information, culture and recreation in the King George community,” Tenney said. “The new Library will provide for the expansion of services and materials; thus making this vision more achievable. We will now have improved capabilities to create opportunities for individuals to enrich their lives through access to lifelong learning.” According to Tenney, the expansion and renovation of the building went smoothly “due in great part to our architect and contractor and a little help from Mother Nature. The biggest challenge of the project came after the building was complete - the coordination of 1 FAMILY

Fire, Rescue & Emergencies
Emergency Services The Department of Fire, Rescue & Emergency Services mission is to answer the call of those in need remaining vigilant and committed to the preservation of life, the protection of property, and the conservation of the environment. We strive to be a high performance combination department and continue to meet the current and future needs of our customers through cooperative teamwork and innovative technology. Through strength, determination and commitment we will ensure the Department exceeds the expectations of those we serve. Our core values consist of professionalism, respect, integrity, dedication and excellence. The Department operates four (4) stations throughout the County, to include Company 1, located on Kings Highway, Company 2 and Station 2, located on Dahlgren Road, and Company 3, located in Fairview Beach. The Department is headquartered at Company 1 and consists of a combination of volunteers and paid county employees. The Department operates utilizing 3 / 24 hour around-
the-clock shift coverage. Currently we have 8 Firefighter / EMT's per shift that are assigned to both Company 1 and 2. In addition, we have many dedicated men and women that volunteer with our Department and serve in many capacities. Our volunteer organization, King George Fire & Rescue, Inc., has more than 150 volunteer Fire & Rescue personnel with 60 active members that also respond to a wide array of emergencies and public needs 24 hours a day. The volunteers are a true asset to the Department and we are always recruiting dedicated people to volunteer. While fire and emergency medical service calls make up a majority of the workload, the Department is also responsible for hazardous materials incidents, technical rescues, industrial accidents, water rescues, emergency management, fire and EMS training, incident reporting data collection, fire prevention, public education, fire code enforcement, and emergency preparedness for both natural and man-made disasters. In 2012 the Department responded to more than 3,400 fire, rescue, EMS and hazardous materials calls, transported
more than 1,500 sick and injured patients to the hospital and saved in excess of $4,500,000 in property from fire loss. The Department’s number one goal is to respond to all emergencies within the county and to provide the utmost care. The Department offers training programs to all volunteer and career personnel; provides training programs for departmental officers; delivers advanced life support training; continues to develop the department’s safety and wellness program to reduce the severity and cost of injuries; and continues to work with the other jurisdictions in the region on developing the Rappahannock Fire and EMS Training Center. Additionally the Department manages and administers the Ambulance Fee for Service program that was initiated on Aug. 1, 2007, and maintains the County’s City Watch (reverse 911) and the KG Alert notification systems. Today, there are over 10,000 citizens that use KG Alert in order to receive emergency related notifications. We encourage all citizens to sign up for KG Alert at www.kgalert.com or feel free to visit our Company 1 station during normal business hours and our staff will be glad to assist you in setting
up your free KG Alert account. Community involvement consists of teaching fire and life safety education, proper installation and use of child safety seats, Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), AED training, hosting fire station visits, and installing smoke detectors, and attending various community events.

Preparing for Disasters and Emergencies in King George County King George is fortunate that it has staff and plans in place to effectively prepare for and respond to emergencies and disasters that affect the County. The County’s Emergency Operations Plan-(EOP) was updated in June 2010. The EOP is the “play book” for how the County plans for and responds to a disaster. The EOP assigns roles and responsibilities to each county department. The County has a Shelter Operations Plan. If conditions warrant opening an emergency shelter, a public announcement will be made. Citizens are asked to bring to a shelter a photo ID, special care items (medications/baby care items), some food, and bedding, if possible. King George also has a Pet Shelter Operations Plan. Pets are not allowed in the human shelters with the exception of service animals. County staff and volunteers will oversee these pets. Citizens will be notified by KGALERT, local media, and social media on locations and other instructions about shelter openings
September is National Preparedness Month This month is a good time for you to start taking actions to prepare you and your family for potential disasters. These actions should include being able to go for three days without electricity, water service, and access to a supermarket, or local services. To get prepared, just follow these three steps: • Get a Kit: Keep enough emergency supplies on hand for you and those in your care – water (one gallon/per person/per day), non-perishable food, first aid, prescriptions, flashlight, battery-powered radio – for a checklist of supplies visit Ready.gov. • Make a Plan: Discuss, agree on, and document an emergency plan with those in your care. For sample plans, see www.Ready.gov. Work together with neighbors, colleagues and others to build community resilience. • Be Informed: Register for KGALERT. Free information is available to assist you from federal, state, and local resources. You can find preparedness information by accessing Ready.gov to learn what to do before, during, and after an emergency.
KGALERT The County launched the KGAlert service in March 2004 as a mass messaging system to the public via email, cell phone, or pager. It is a free service that now has more than 10,000 Registered users. Approximately 1,000 alerts sent per year. Notifications can be issued by Fire and Rescue, Sheriff ’s Office, Schools, Service Authority, Social Services and other County departments. Users can sign-up for the service by going to www.kgalert. com Users can select what kind of messages they receive. Types of alerts sent out include: • Severe Thunderstorm and Tornado warnings. (Severe Thunderstorm or Tornado warnings are automatically sent to subscribers once the National Weather Service issues the warnings) • Road closures- typically primary or secondary roads • Event cancellations • Water/sewer issues • Weather related School/Government closures/ cancellation • Public Health advisories- Rabies cases • Emergency/Disaster related information/ instructions

The King George Fire and Rescue and the Sheriff ’s Office may not always be able to reach you quickly if trees and power lines are down or if they're overwhelmed by demand from an emergency or disaster situation. The most important step that you can take in helping your local responders is being able to take care of yourself and those in your care until responders arrive on scene. The more people who are prepared for a disaster, the quicker the community will recover. As FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate reminds us, "Individuals and families are the most important members of the nation's emergency management team. Being prepared can save precious time if there is a need to respond to an emergency."

Be safe with generators, space heaters Generator Safety Always read the label and the owner’s manual for your generator and. Follow all instructions. Generators make an invisible, odorless gas called carbon monoxide, or CO, that can be fatal. To avoid CO poisoning, operate generators outdoors only in a well-ventilated, dry area, away from home air intakes, and protected from direct exposure to rain. Never use a generator indoors or in attached garages. Install CO alarms with battery backup in your home’s sleeping areas. Never use a portable generator in any enclosed or partially enclosed space. Windows and doors do not provide enough ventilation. Do not locate a portable generator outside near windows or doors. Get to fresh air immediately if you start to feel sick, weak or dizzy. Space Heater Safety Install a smoke alarm on every level of your home. Test smoke alarm batteries every month and change them at least
once a year. Kerosene heaters are not permitted in many areas. If you use one, use only the recommended fuel. Always refuel outdoors safely away from your home. Allow your heater to cool before refueling. Kerosene has a low flash point and might cause a fire if it comes into contact with a hot surface. Space heaters need room. Keep flammable materials at least three feet away from the heater. Never set the heater on a chair or table. It should sit only on an uncarpeted floor. When buying a space heater, look for a control feature that automatically shuts off the heater if the heater falls over. Keep an eye on your heater at all times while it is running. Shut it off before you go to bed or when you leave the house. Never run a portable heater longer than the manufacturer recommends. Carefully follow manufacturer’s installation and maintenance instructions. Do not overload extension cords or run them under rugs.

Serving Others Summer Lunch Bunch serves over 5000 free lunches Coming to a Neighborhood near You! King George Summer Lunch Bunch celebrated its fifth anniversary in 2013 in fine fashion, providing over 5,000 bagged lunches to hungry children in the county. The program originated in 2009, when Potomac Elementary School teacher Julie Boucher realized local children experience food insecurity on a regular basis when school lets out for the summer. She obtained a church grant to purchase food and enlisted fellow church members from Dahlgren United Methodist Church to prepare and serve lunches at the church once a week. About 25 children were served that first summer, but Boucher knew others were in need as well, so in summer 2010, they packed the lunches into coolers and delivered them into neighborhoods in Dahlgren and Pineview/Princess Anne trailer courts. In 2011, members from Peace Lutheran Church joined the effort and extended
Stop Hunger Now 2013 What started as a local church event, has turned into an annual community project. The first year's event set a fund raising goal of $2500. (minimum to hold the event. In 2012, almost $9000. was raised. 2013's goal is to raise $10,000, which would be forty thousand meals packaged. Established in 1998, Stop Hunger Now is an international hunger relief organization that coordinates the distribution of food and other lifesaving aid around the world. The organization is driven by the vision of a world without hunger and a mission to end hunger in our lifetime by providing food and life saving aid. Stop Hunger Now’s meal packaging program is a volunteer-based effort through which participants package high protein, dehydrated meals for use in crisis situations. This year's packaging event will be on Sunday, Nov. 24. Set up at 12:30 p.m. Packaging starts right after set up. Come out and see how the packaging event runs. Volunteers of all ages are welcome. Call 540-709-7495 for details. One dollar ($1) feeds 4. Not even a value meal can do that.
the service area to include children who attend Sealston Elementary School and eastbound across the Route 3 corridor. The churches received advice on developing the program from the King George County Extension Office and the King GeorgeFamily YMCA. Mid-summer, they were joined by St. Paul’s Episcopal Church/ St. John’s Hanover-with-Brunswick Parish, who added a second delivery day to the Dahlgren route. The following winter, members from those churches as well as Two Rivers Baptist Church organized into a Board of Directors and agreed to unite and consolidate their operations for the benefit of children across the county. For summer 2012, lunches were delivered twice weekly across the county with help from additional volunteers from Trinity United Methodist Church, Restoration Community Worship Center, Oakland Baptist Church, Fletcher’s Chapel United Methodist Church, Round Hill Baptist Church, Shiloh Baptist Church, Community Bank of Tri-County, and Peoples Community Bank. Each delivery vehicle also takes a bin of children’s books, and children get a book of their choosing in addition to their lunch. It is hoped that providing the books will encourage
summer reading by children who lack transportation to the library. Registration is not required, but the child must be present to receive the lunch and is limited to one lunch per child. This past summer, Trinity Methodist Church members joined the Summer Lunch Bunch Board of Directors, and lunches and books were again delivered twice weekly. Summer Lunch Bunch also provided lunches on their regular delivery days to King George County students attending the elementary and middle school summer schools, adding an additional 160 lunches each day to the 220 or so already being prepared. “We learned of a need, and we were able to fill it, it’s that simple. No child chooses hunger,” stated Board of Directors member Annie Cupka. Summer Lunch Bunch is funded by donations by King George County churches, businesses, and individuals in both King George County and Fredericksburg. Church and civic groups and local businesses may volunteer to serve in the kitchen, as a sorter, or on delivery. Several of our regular volunteers are teachers in county schools and see on a regular basis how important proper nourishment is for school children. Adult volunteers
must submit to a background check and be willing to comply with Summer Lunch Bunch’s Policies and Procedures, which were developed with child safety and food safety in mind. Children are eligible to volunteer as well, serving as sorters who place wrapped food items and the Bible activity sheets in the bags. In addition to the children of some of our volunteers who participate on a regular basis, members of King George Brownie Troop 648 and Sunday school classes from Shiloh Baptist Church helped prepare lunches and sort books with us last summer. King George Summer Lunch Bunch also helps provide information to families about other services in our community, such as scholarship programs for the YMCA and reminders for upcoming Love Thy Neighbor events. For more information, contact King George Summer Lunch Bunch via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. King George Summer Lunch Bunch wishes to thank all those churches, civic groups, businesses, and individuals who have supported us with their time, enthusiasm, food and paper goods, and funds, and thanks to The Journal for helping us spread the word! -King George Summer Lunch Bunch

KG Family YMCA
The King George YMCA: making sure everyone has a chance to succeed Richard Leggitt Without a doubt, one of the most successful contributors to the health, wellness and development of the citizens of King George County is the King George Family YMCA, which is in its fifth year of successful operation. “The Y believes that everyone deserves a chance to succeed - no matter their background or income, and we have learned that can happen only when we unite to nurture the best in all of us,” said Elizabeth McBride, the KG YMCA’s membership director. “The King George Family YMCA has had five years of impacting the community. Impacting the community means making a difference in the lives of people,” McBride said. “The King George Family YMCA has over 5500 members
and assists over 300 families every month through the Y’s Open Doors Programs for membership and programs.” “The Y is community-centered – the King George YMCA connects people of all ages and backgrounds to meet community needs. The Y is a meeting place at no charge for county organizations like Ruritans, Day of Caring, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, The Gideon’s, and Young Life,” McBride said. “The Y nurtures potential – The King George Family YMCA has brought many programs to the county to enhance the quality of life for all citizens: swim programs for all ages, fitness classes for all ages, therapeutic and rehab programs using land and water, teen and youth programs, active older adult programs, before and after school programs, and preschool programs.” According to McBride, the KG YMCA hosts successful yearly events for the entire community including Healthy Kids Day, Creepy Crawly Carnival, 5K Family Runs, Family Fun Nights and New Year’s Eve Family Party. Each year the Y also hosts the Domestic Violence Awareness Run and National Night Out. “The King George Family YMCA has

three focus areas,” said McBride, “Youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.” McBride said youth development is essential, “So our kids can make their dreams a reality. At the KGY, we believe that all kids have amazing potential. The values and skills learned early are vital building blocks for life, and young people deserve an opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve.” She said over 1,000 youth in the area participate in Y youth programs each year. Current programs include state licensed preschool, state licensed before and after school care, swim lessons, home school, clubs, state licensed summer camp, adapted programs including swim lessons for children with special needs, Special Olympics, youth sports, middle school nights, gymnastics, science adventures, teen life skill classes, youth outdoor activities and Red Cross babysitting classes. Programs for healthy living are a key because, “Everyone gets more out of life,” McBride said. “At the KGY, we believe that being healthy means more than simply being physically active. It is about maintaining a balanced spirit, mind and
body. The Y is a leading voice on health and well-being issues, a leader in fighting chronic disease, and is committed to empowering people to lead fuller lives.” McBride said the King George YMCA organized the King George Healthy Living Coalition. The coalition is made up of different organizations from the county. The organizations include Wendy Moore Dentistry; the Journal; King George County Schools; King George Parks and Recreation Department; King George Farmers’ Market; King George Optimist Club, and Virginia Cooperative Extension. According to McBride, the KG Healthy Living Coalition has been instrumental in advocating for healthy eating options and more physical activities for children in the community. The coalition has built a community playground, organized events focused on children and the obesity issue, spoke to administrators, school personnel and the Board of Supervisors, and gathered statistical information about children’s snacking habits. “Social responsibility- where everyone comes together for the common good is very important to the KGY,” McBride said. “We believe that when we work

What began as a gun test facility has evolved and expanded to include numerous scientific and responseforce missions serving all branches of the United States armed forces. In addition to its military value, today Naval Support Facility (NSF) Dahlgren makes a significant economic contribution to the local community and serves as one of the largest employers in King George County, Virginia, and the surrounding area. Naval Support Facility Dahlgren, Va., was initially established in 1918 as a remote extension of the Naval Proving Ground in Indian Head, Md. which had been established in 1890 to test naval guns. The Virginia site was eventually named Dahlgren Naval Proving Ground in honor of Rear Admiral John Adolphus Dahlgren. The location on the Potomac River was specifically chosen for the development of a long ballistic range on the Potomac River, required for the testing of modern, high-powered munitions. The installation’s ballistic ranges have since been used for proofing and testing every major naval gun and all ammunitions supplied to the Fleet. Following World War II, the impact of new technology on weapons systems shifted the emphasis from traditional proof and testing functions on weaponry to those of research and development of weapon systems. Electronic firing and targeting systems and the effects of electromagnetic radiation from radio and radar transmitters on ordnance became the emphasis of weapons research. During the 1950s, the U.S. Navy produced the first Fleet Ballistic Missile System. Dahlgren pioneered the development of fire control and targeting software for missile-borne strategic nuclear weapons on U.S. Navy submarines. Dahlgren continues to support new

Since 1960, Dahlgren has b e e n he av i ly i nvolve d w it h satellite geodesy. During the 1970s, new ammunition and gun systems were developed at Dahlgren to provide increased safety, accuracy and range for naval guns. Also, during this period, Dahlgren provided comprehensive development and support for Tomahawk Weapon System. In 1977, the name of the Dahlgren base was changed to the Naval Surface Weapons Center. A decade later, the base was renamed as the Naval Surface Warfare Center to recognize Dahlgren's growing contributions to the development of integrated warfare systems versus weapons components. Installation management of the Navy base at Dahlgren transferred to Commander Navy Installation Command (CNIC) in 2003 with the standup of this new Echelon II command charged with providing shore installation management services to all Navy activities. All naval installations within the National Capital Region aligned with Naval District Washington (NDW), and on Nov. 3, 2005, the Dahlgren base was renamed as Naval Support Facility Dahlgren with the commissioning of Naval Support Activity South Potomac (NSASP) as the installation’s host command.

States. NAMDC is lead for Navy BMD Enterprise, which was established to enable Navy’s actions and initiatives to support timely ballistic missile defense of Europe. Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) is both a field activity of the Naval Sea System Command, as well as the Navy element of the Department of Defense’s Missile Defense Agency (MDA) Aegis BMD Program. Aegis BMD builds upon and extends capabilities inherent in the Aegis Weapon System, Standard Missile (SM) and Navy command and control systems. Aegis BMD accomplishes significant roles in homeland and regional defense. In the latter, Aegis BMD provides ballistic missile engagement capability against short to intermediate range ballistic missiles both above and inside the atmosphere. Aegis BMD ships have integrated planning, detection, control, engagement and damage assessment functionalities for ballistic missile engagement. For Homeland Defense, Aegis BMD possesses the Long Range Surveillance and Track (LRS&T) capability. Aegis BMD modified ships

terminal missile defense systems (Patriot, Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) and Aegis BMD) will coordinate engagements of short- and medium-range ballistic missiles. Integrated, layered defense will be realized as tracking information is shared among these systems, enabling a midcourse engagement followed by terminal engagements. Regional/theater layered defense is another example of Aegis BMD delivering relevant capability to the BMDS. Aegis BMD and the Navy have upgraded over 24 Aegis combatants to conduct ballistic missile defense operations. Sixteen of these ships are assigned to the Pacific Fleet and eight ships assigned to the Atlantic Fleet. The Chief of Naval Operations has designated BMD as a core Navy mission and looks to populate the BMD capability throughout the Aegis Fleet to meet the Combatant Commanders’ demand signal. Aegis BMD and Navy are working together to increase the number of Aegis BMD capable ships. Such efforts consist of upgrading Aegis Destroyers (DDGs) to the BMD capability, incorporating Aegis BMD into the Aegis DDG Modernization Program and new construction of Aegis BMD DDGs. Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD) is the largest command at NSF Dahlgren and accounts for fully two-thirds of the base’s workforce. NSWCDD’s roots go back to the founding of the Dahlgren naval base as the Navy’s premier proving ground. Today, NSWC Dahlgren Division, as part of the
Naval Support Facility Dahlgren
Naval Sea Systems Command, is a critical component of the largest research and engineering organization for the Department of Defense. NSWCDD’s sustaining fundamental capabilities, grounded in electromagnetics, engineering, continuum mechanics and computation and analysis, are the basis for continued development of solutions for naval and national needs. The command provides research, development, test and evaluation, analysis, systems engineering, integration and certification of complex naval warfare systems related to surface warfare, strategic systems, combat and weapons systems. NSWCDD also provides system integration and certification for weapons, combat systems and warfare systems. NSWCDD’s strategic direction is to provide the full spectrum of science and engineering capabilities for surface ship weapons systems integration up to and including the force level, missile defense, strategic systems and related areas of joint and homeland defense. The command’s workforce of scientists and engineers is pushing the envelope of ordnance and weaponry for tomorrow’s Navy, and is equally contributing to the integrated design of the Fleet of the future. For example, in 2012, NSWCDD engineers fired the Navy’s first industry-built electromagnetic (EM) rail gun prototype launcher at the Dahlgren EM rail gun test facility, commencing an evaluation that is an important intermediate step toward a future tactical weapon for ships. The firing kicked off a two- month-long test series by the Office of Naval Research to evaluate the first of two industry-built launchers. The tests will bring the Navy

The first round of exhibits in the Dahlgren Heritage Museum, in the former Gateway Welcome Center on Route 301, will be the focus of special events at the museum, beginning with the base’s 95th anniversary festivities in October 2013. From the first shot on the Potomac gun range in 1918 to current research on the electromagnetic rail gun, the museum will tell the story of how an isolated piece of King George County farmland evolved into an engineering and intellectual center for the Navy.
Special programs dealing with Dahlgren’s role in the development of key advances in aviation, like unmanned aircraft and the Norden bombsight, will be offered in the near term. For more details on upcoming programs and for when the museum will be open, check the museum’s website at www. dahlgrenmuseum.org. Financial support for the first round of museum exhibits included a $50,000 grant from Dominion Resources. Other significant donors have included the NSWC Federal Credit Union, Walmart stores in the region, the Community Foundation of the Rapphannock River Region, Fredericksburg philanthropist Mary Jane O’Neil, Lockheed Martin, URS Corporation and many others. The exhibits in the museum building will complement the widely praised permanent exhibit on Dahlgren history at the University of Mary Washington’s Dahlgren Campus.

surface combatants. They partner with U.S. training, readiness and policy organizations, as well as other government agencies and industry to support our international mission. In addition, CSCS conducts training for nine enlisted ratings: Fire Controlmen, E le c t ronic Te chnicians, Inter ior Communications, Sonar Technician (surface), Gunner’s Mates, Mineman, Operations Specialists, Boatswain’s Mates, and Quartermasters. CSCS also trains surface warfare officers in skills required to tactically operate and employ Aegis and Ship Self Defense System (SSDS) equipped ships. Aegis Training and Readiness Center (ATRC) was established at Dahlgren as a training command in November 1984 and is currently one component of CSCS. ATRC’s core mission is training military personnel in the operation, maintenance, and employment of the Aegis Combat Weapons System and the operation and employment of the Ship’s Self Defense System. The Aegis Weapons System has evolved into a fast reaction, high performance,
computerized system using the latest radar technology to detect contacts and engage threats. The Aegis Combat System is a functional grouping of the Aegis Weapons Systems with AntiAir, Ballistic Missile Defense, AntiSubmarine, Anti-Surface and Strike Warfare, and associated weapons and communications equipment. Each element of these overall systems is taught at ATRC. As the weapons systems evolve, courses are tailored to support differences between equipment found on the various Aegis ships. After completing intensive training, each student becomes a vital part of his or her assigned ship’s combat systems team and assists in highly detailed procedures designed to ensure total combat readiness of the individual ship and Strike Group. ATRC’s traditional school house instruction is delivered 24 hours a day, five days a week. Nearly 650 enlisted Fire Controlmen and 550 officers graduate annually. Military instructors are typically Fleet returnees who bring relevant, recent experience to the classroom. Contracted instructors are typically prior Aegis Sailors who provide continuity to our instructional staff. Electronic classrooms,

electronic technical manuals, and longrange connectivity allow for continued expansion of the quantity and quality of training to meet growing training requirements. ATRC’s ongoing efforts include examining new technologies and training methods for innovative, less costly ways to train to meet new challenges and needs of the United States Navy. Joint Warfare Analysis Center (JWAC), a component of U.S. Strategic Command, provides combatant commands, Joint Staff, and other customers with precise technical solutions to carry out the national security and military strategies of the United States. To accomplish its mission, JWAC uses information provided by its partners in the intelligence community to analyze some of the most complex problems faced by military and civilian leaders alike and, by applying rigorous analytical methods, recommends solutions to these problems. It handles both crisis operations and contingency planning. Among its customers are combatant commands, the Joint Staff, and civilian agencies like the Departments of State and Treasury. Before 1994, JWAC was a department
of NSWCDD. Yet its earliest form began as a program office during the 1981 Iran hostage rescue mission. At that time, several employees working in F Department answered a request from the Pentagon to help with one aspect of the mission. Although the rescue mission ultimately failed, the ideas that had been developed for it took root and grew. Over the years, JWAC’s mission has evolved and expanded to stay relevant to the evolving threats facing our country. Beginning in 2004 and in every year since, the command has deployed dozens of civilian and military analysts to theater to provide direct customer support to battlefield commanders. JWAC employs about 500 engineers, scientists, military members and support personnel at its headquarters at Dahlgren. Formerly a joint subordinate command of U.S. Joint Forces Command (JFCOM) in Norfolk, Va. for more than a decade, JWAC officially became part of U.S. Strategic Command in Offutt Air Force Base, Neb., effective 1 June 2011. 20th Space Control Squadron, Detachment 1 (20 SPCS Det 1) was Continued on page 58

established Oct. 1, 2004, as a component of the 20th Space Control Squadron headquartered at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. Upon activation, the unit assumed operation of both the Naval Space Surveillance System (renamed “Air Force Space Surveillance System” (AFSSS)) and the Alternate Space Control Center (ASCC) missions from Naval Network and Space Operations Command. On April 30, 2010, the unit transferred the AFSSS and ASCC operational missions to the 614th Air & Space Operations Center, Detachment 1 (also located at NSF Dahlgren). The new unit mission is to sustain space control and command and control capabilities to dominate the high ground. 20 SPCS Det 1 accomplishes this mission by supporting the Distributive Space Command and Control (DSC2, the new name for the ASCC mission) and AFSSS operations. The detachment is manned by active-duty Airmen, Air Force civilians and contractors. DSC2-Dahlgren is the alternate command and control node for the Joint Space Operations Center-Space Situational Awareness Operations Cell
(JSpOC-SSAOC) at Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif. DSC2-Dahlgren tasks the Space Surveillance Network, a worldwide system of 29 sensors (both radar and optical), to detect, track and observe orbital objects larger than 10 centimeters. The collected data is transmitted to 20 SPCS Det 1 computer systems where it is processed, cataloged and analyzed. The observations are used to update the Space Catalog which is a comprehensive listing of the number, type, and orbit of more than 16,000 man-made objects in space. 20 SPCS Det 1 also provides a backup computational and command and control capability for the JSpOC. 614th Air and Space Operations Center, Detachment One (614 AOC Det 1) was activated on April 30, 2010 and is responsible for providing space command and control and space superiority for U.S. forces as well as space situational awareness to government and civilian customers. 614 AOC Det 1 is responsible for functioning as the Distributive Space Command and Control - Dahlgren (DSC2-D) which mirrors the Joint Space Operations Center located on

NSF Dahlgren Vandenberg AFB, Calif. DSC2-D provides tasking to the space surveillance network, a worldwide network of 31 space surveillance sensors (radar and optical telescopes, both military and civilian) on high-priority satellites, processes space events (launches, re-entries, de-orbits, breakups, maneuvers, etc.) and works directly with NASA to ensure the safety of the International Space Station crews. The command also works laser clearinghouse requests to ensure laser test fires do not interfere with on orbit assets. Collocated and working hand-in-hand with Naval Network Warfare Command Space Operations, DSC2-D compliments the Department of the Navy’s Satellite Vulnerability Program by providing near
real-time notification of potentially hostile space-based reconnaissance systems in support of global naval operations and provides space situational awareness products and services in support of United States Strategic Command. The command t asks t he space surveillance network to observe and track satellites and match those sensor observations to the more than 15,000 man-made orbiting objects and update the position of each one. These updates form the Space Catalog, a comprehensive listing of orbital parameters for objects in space. This data is used to provide the space surveillance network with upto-date information for more efficient satellite tracking.

Historic Belle Grove
Historic Belle Grove, King George’s new bed and breakfast, is open for business Belle Grove, the historic birthplace of former President James Madison and King George’s new luxury bed and breakfast, is open for business. And although the date for a grand opening has not been set, rooms and tours are available, and event planning is underway. “We are currently in a soft opening as we get our curtains, rugs and decor added to the house,” said Michelle Darnell, who operates the majestic plantation with her husband, Brett. “During this time, we are booking rooms and will be giving a ten percent discount during that visit and a ten percent discount on a return visit to see the finished house.” The Darnells have leased the Belle Grove estate from Hass Belle Grove, Inc., which bought the plantation in 1997 and spent $3.5 million in historical renovations that were completed in 2003. Michelle and Brett have been hard at work acquiring furniture, landscaping the property, building a driveway and making plans for a parking area to accommodate their guests. Several major events are already on Belle Grove’s schedule for the fall. On Sept. 15, there will be a VIP
dinner and salon with historical performers James and Dolly Madison. Scheduled for Oct. 25, 26 and Oct. 31 is a paranormal workshop and ghost hunting. Tickets for both events will be available on the Belle Grove website. According to Michelle Darnell, the paranormal event will feature five classes with a paranormal team on ghost hunting, plus a session with a medium. Tickets for this event can be purchased per class or for the whole day event. The paranormal team is South East Virginia paranormal investigators out of Newport News, Virginia. This team is working on a pilot for a TV show called Paranormal Apprentice. Belle Grove will be featured in the show’s second episode. Belle Grove is one of Virginia’s most historic homes.

The Belle Grove property on the north side of the Rappahannock River was purchased by Captain Anthony Savage in 1670. The house and acreage were later acquired by Francis Conway and Rebecca Catlett Conway, James Madison’s grandparents. Their daughter, Eleanor Rose Conway, returned to the riverside plantation in December 1750, for the birth of her child, the nation’s fourth president, on March 16, 1751. The plantation was named Belle Grove by Rebecca Conway’s second husband, John Moore. Tours of Belle Grove are available daily from 12 to 3. “We do ask that you please call us at 540-621-7340 to schedule a tour. Cost for tours are $10 for adults, $5 for children 12 and under, and children 4 and under are free. We also encourage everyone to please visit our official website at www.bellegroveplantation.com,” said Michelle. “We will be posting more events, as well as adding items to our online store. Gift certificates are now available in our online store. We have also been added to TripAdvisor, BedandBreakfast.com and ILoveInns.com. As always, to find out what’s going on day today at the plantation, please follow us on our Facebook page.” “If you are interested in a meeting or reception or party at Belle Grove, please call us to set up an appointment to schedule,” Michelle said. “If you are interested in Christmas parties, we ask that you book them early as dates are filling fast. Since opening the doors two weeks ago, we have had several sold-out nights, which is very exciting. We look forward to having many, many more.”

KING GEORGE 60
The 4-H Pledge I pledge • my Head to clearer thinking, • my Heart to greater loyalty, • my Hands to larger service, • and my Health to better living, for my club, my community, my country, and my world. 4-H programs take several shapes— camp, 4-H Congress and school enrichment are three. The most well-known method of 4-H program delivery is through club activities There are 15 active 4-H Clubs in King George County. Most clubs focus on a project area where youth learn about the project through participating in related activities. The 4-H year runs from Oct. 1 through Sept. 30 and if you are between the ages of 9 and 19 during that year, you can join! We have a few options for 5 to 8 year olds as well. They are Cloverbuds, and can have the same interest as a 4-H club but explore the subject on their own level. Following is information about each club and its interest or focus as well as other 4-H opportunities. All programs are open to all, so for more information,
please check with Terry Misch. 4-H Junior Camp Another popular 4-H program is 4-H Junior Camp, held each summer at the Northern Virginia 4-H Center. This is always a fun week where youth from King George, Caroline and Spotsylvania enjoy participating in activities like archery, riflery, swimming, ropes courses, performing arts, crafts and cooking. This year, King George youth and adults provided additional classes in tennis, intro to karate, bracelet making, survival cooking and ballroom dance. Youth do not have to be members of a 4-H club to attend camp, and it’s a great place for meeting new people and having fun with friends. Teen counselors are the key to having a

great camp week, and our camp cluster has some of the best. Teens go through an application, interview and training process that begins in December and continues through camp. Interested teens should get their name on the mailing list by early December, and camper applications will be released February/March 2014. Virginia 4-H Congress and All Stars Teens can participate in Virginia 4-H Congress, the premier teen event held early
each summer. Teens travel to Virginia Tech to compete in state level presentation and Share the Fun (talent) competitions and participate in Great Summer Showcase workshops that highlight some of the interesting programs available at Virginia Tech. This year, youth toured the dairy research barn, the osteopathic education cadaver lab and learned about healthy foods by participating in smoothie wars. Youth from all over the state attend as delegates and 4-H Cabinet and district

ambassador elections are an integral part of the learning activities. Another program held at 4-H Congress is the 4-H All Star “tapping” ceremony. 4-H All Stars are youth who have participated in many 4-H competitions and events and are able to score at least 80 points on the nomination form. King George had 2 new 4-H All Stars tapped at 2012 4-H Congress, Amber Garbee and Katie Barnum. The 4-H All Star motto is “service” and Amber is already living by that as she helps lead Fancy’s Friends 4-H Dog Club. Katie continues to be active in the youth leadership of the King George 4-H Livestock Club and has another year of 4-H participation. 4-H Day at the Capitol Another program for teens is 4-H Day at the State Capitol, and 11 teens and 2 adults traveled to Richmond in February to deliver shamrock plants to our delegates and senators. We also visited with Margaret Ransone, local Delegate, and observed the state house and senate in session. Youth remarked on the parliamentary procedure being used by lawmakers as something they had learned through 4-H since it is part of club officer training.
National Youth Science Day National Youth Science Day is an event planned by the staff at the National 4-H Youth Center in Chevy Chase, MD. Participants tour the center and conduct the national science experiment, which involves robotics this year. The event is planned for October 10, 2012, and King George youth are planning to attend. Last year, we saw ourselves conducting the wind power experiment on Fox 5 News as they covered the event. School Enrichment School enrichment programs are presented in the classroom to all 4th and 7th grade students. Fourth graders learn about agriculture, culminating with planting beans and corn to learn about plant growth. Seventh graders learn about insects and ecosystems, assembling an insect display and using it as they study taxonomy to identify their insects to the correct order. No matter who you are or what your interests, there is a 4-H program for you! If you would like to learn more about 4-H programs or would like to volunteer, please contact Terry Misch and we will find a place for you!
4-H clubs • Horse Clubs There are two horse clubs in King George, the King George Horse and Pony Club.

KING GEORGE 62
Kids of all ages gravitate to sports in King George Leonard Banks The King George County community is an oasis for sports enjoyment. For years, from golf to softball, families have gravitated to the place were physical fitness, and the competitive spirit of social bonding is enjoyed. Baseball and Softball When it comes to baseball and softball, most kids begin the learning process in the King George Little League (KGLL). The organization began in 1980, as a part of Little League International. Players, 4-18 years old, have the opportunity to learn and play the sport at the ground level. The objectives of KGLL are focused on helping children learn the importance of good sportsmanship, honesty, teamwork, loyalty, and respect. KGLL is one of 11 leagues under the umbrella of Little League District 15 of Virginia.
On the high school level, King George has enjoyed phenomenal success from both the baseball and softball programs. During the 2012 spring season, the varsity baseball team won the Battlefield District Tournament for the first time, while sending their ace pitcher Damion Carroll to the Major League draft. Carroll was signed and continues to play for the Tampa Bay Rays minor league system. After years of losing, head coach Thad Reviello revived the program with three winning seasons in a row. “After they bought into our system, we changed the dynamics, and started winning games right away,” Reviello said. On the junior varsity level, the Foxes (12-7) competed against Eastern View for the Battlefield District Championship this year. Under the coaching auspices of Nick Simmons, the Foxes have made four trips to the championship, winning one. “The boys are working to get better so they can help out the varsity program as early as next year,” Simmons said. The Foxes softball program is second to none. Under All-Area Coach of the Year, Renee Parker, the team enjoyed its best season in high school history. After winning both the Battlefield District
and Regional Championships, the Foxes advanced to the semi-finals against Cave Springs in the second round of the coveted VHSL AA Championship. “The players and coaches alike have a lot to be proud of and we will look back on this season with great fondness,” Parker
said. “We called this team a machine from the very first time we saw them on the field—mainly due to the seamless way they made plays—it was truly amazing to see so early in the season. Having the technical skill and the mindset to go with it is rare, but they had both. Setting

Sports Organizations records always feels good, but the way these girls decided to take it all, and then go do it was everything.” Leading the way for the Foxes varsity softball team this season was Taylor Brandts. The Battlefield District Pitcher of the Year is now an official member of the University of Virginia-Wise softball team. “She does all the things you want to see an athlete do, who plays a team sport, and is not just in it for themselves,” Parker said. During the summer, King George Post 89 baseball team entered its 11th season. The travel baseball team finished the season 15-6, with a District 13 championship division loss to Albemarle Post 74, 8-5. After years of battling Albemarle, with limited success, Post 89 head coach Al Landino has hinted that he may change divisions next season. Unlike most American Legion teams, Post 74 fields two junior divisions that feed into the senior level. The Her-icanes Softball team coached by Jeff Truslow enjoyed a summer filled with success. They finished high in every tournament they competed in during the summer, including a two-day tournament in Marshall, and the Summer Breeze Tournament in Richmond. Football Football is king in King George, and the fever for dashing down the field, and kicking long-range field goals is hotter than ever. Last fall, the Foxes football team officially moved out of Hunter Field into the new King George County Stadium. They also commemorated famed football players of the past, including the 1952 team during a brief pre-game ceremony. Now in his fifth season, Foxes head football coach Jeff Smith is thrilled to have another opportunity to take his team to a potential championship. After finishing 9-3, including a trip to the Group AA, Region I semi-finals against Smithfield (21-14), the Foxes have regrouped with
a clear focus on establishing a winning program. “The goal right now is to get to where we were last year,” Smith said. “Even now when I go places, people often say, I remember when King George struggled to win a game—but it’s a whole different breed now.” The varsity is supported by both the junior varsity program (George Estes, head coach), and the King George Middle School football program (Chris Zylonis, head coach). KGYAA In 2007, the face of recreational sports changed and lifted the level of sports in King George. Because of the efforts of King George Athletic Association founders, Jim Salyers, Jr., Jim Sherman, and George Estes the organization has created a football and cheerleading foundation for thousands of kids during the past six years. “Our initial goal, quite frankly, was simply to get the association ‘off the ground’ and begin the long trek of establishing a pedigree and good name recognition,” Salyers said. “Our vision has always been to provide outstanding football and cheerleading opportunities to a broad spectrum of participants, and to provide a friendly, sportsmanlike environment in which our young athletes can develop their skills and compete. That we’re entering our 12th overall season of football and cheerleading, I think, attests to our collective success to date.”

A. Muhammad. In regard to Muhammad’s Boxing and Martial Arts, the boxing program has transitioned into a part of the martial arts, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu curriculum, while the school’s Little Ninja program has grown into over 120 students. “It’s really important to not only get your child into a martial arts program, but to remember that not all schools are made equal,” Muhammad said. The Isshin Ryu Karate school has been a staple in the King George community for 14 years. Although the study of Karate embodies self-esteem, and a deep sense of peace and well being, some people have gotten the wrong impression. “A lot of people look at Karate as being violent, and a bad thing, but it’s really not that at all,” Kline said. “We are teaching people to deal with situations without being violent.” Swimming In 1965, famed King George High School swim coach Ken Novell, founded the Rappahannock Swim League, beginning with the Dahlgren Sharks (Elizabeth Guthrie, head coach). Since
the league’s birth, it has grown into 24 teams, including the Eden Estate Eels (Luke Jones, head coach), and Hopyard Hammerheads (Brandon Hendrickson, and Connor Muncie, head coaches). Fitness, and triathlon athlete, Debi Bernardes was the perfect fit for the job of head swim coach for the King George High School swim team when Novell retired. Bernardes and her staff of assistants were the primary reason for the success of both the girls’ and boys’ swim teams. After five straight seasons as the top program in the district, the Foxes loss to James Monroe last year in the district championships. Track & Field When it comes to track & field, the Foxes high school teams are supreme. Last spring the girls’ outdoor team won the district championship for the fourth season in a row. Although their top performer, Lindsey Armentrout was injured playing soccer, the Foxes came within a few points of winning the Regional title. For the second time in school history, the Foxes entered a team to compete in the New Balance Outdoor Nationals
Championship. After qualifying in the Group AA Outdoor Track & Field Championship, with a time of 9:47.19, the team of Kristen Hornbaker, Ashley Perkins, Brittany Williams, and Miranda Green joined 38 teams at the New Balance Outdoor Nationals on June 14-16, at North Carolina A&T, Irwin Belk Track,

Field Hockey After years of posting losing seasons, the Foxes field hockey team ventured into post season play during the 2013 season. The season also ended with the departure of long-time head coach Dee Blair, and the hiring of former Foxes assistant coach Debra Garcia, as the new field hockey chief. “All programs go through cycles, where you have a really good season, before having to figure out how you’re going to adjust to next season’s challenges,” Garcia said. “With change, there will be opportunities for new players to step up into positions.”
Tennis Under the leadership Martin Wolowicz, the boys’ tennis program has made tremendous strides towards becoming a competitive team. On the girls side, Josh Gillette’s team finished the spring season with a winning record, and a post-season berth to play in the coveted district tournament. Wrestling Over the winter 2012-2013-season, wrestling took center stage. It also was a cause for celebration for five King George High School wrestlers. Bryson Howard (145 lb., 3rd), Alon Clipper (160 lb., 3rd), Ryan Heavener (106 lb., 4th), Trevor Smith (126 lb., 4th), Seth Turner (285 lb., 4th) and 170-pound champion, Jacob Tucker earned the right to compete in the Regional Championship Other county sports related programs include: ASA softball, 4-H horseback riding, semi-pro football, King George Parks & Recreation wrestling, kartracing, body-building, year-round swimming (Rappahannock Raiders), gymnastics, and endurance races (5K, 10K, marathons).

King George approves 5-year capital projects list Phyllis Cook The King George Board of Supervisors approved an updated five-year Capital Improvements Program (CIP) at its meeting on Aug. 20. The CIP program totals about $21,059,913, though not all costs have been updated to reflect some projects being adjusted or previously purchased and removed. The five-year plan spans fiscal years beginning with the current 2013-14 through 2017-18. (See related article elsewhere in this guide for additional details on the projects listed for funding in the current fiscal year.) The approved CIP is used as a guide for planning purposes in future years. The program is subject to changes in out-years, with projects often moved further out for funding. But sometimes the opposite is true and it happens that projects can receive funding earlier than the year(s) in which they are placed. The Planning Commission is the first to review the projects that come forward from department heads, county offices, constitutional officers, the school division and the library. The Planning Commission reviews proposed projects with requestors at a meeting in the spring and holds a public hearing. Projects are then ranked, with adjustments made at another meeting the
following month. After the proposed program is ranked, it is forwarded to the county administration and provided to the members of the Board of Supervisors. Travis Quesenberry, county administrator, often will provide recommendations for adjustments to the program, which are reviewed by Supervisors during a meeting. After the board comes to some kind of consensus, a proposed program is adopted at another meeting. The approved five-year CIP follows, with projects listed along with cost estimates. PROJECTS CONTAINED IN 2013-14 TO 2017-18 CIP PARKS & RECREATION Eight projects requested totaling $4,096,785, with six of them being phased construction/upgrades for park projects with funding requested in successive years. $63,785 for Shiloh Park-Phase 2 funded in 2013-14. $455,000 for Shiloh Park-Phase 3 slated for 2014-15 to include construction of utilities (electrical, water and sewer), restrooms/concession facility and two picnic shelters. $500,000 for Shiloh Park-Phase 3 requested in 2017-18 for lighting for baseball and multi-purpose fields. $100,000 requested for Practice Lights at schools and Barnesfield Park, with the request split equally between 2014-15 and 2015-16. $455,000 for Barnesfield Park Upgrades Phase 1 to include additional parking, field lighting and a well for

The gym and Hunter Field are owned and by the School Board, which is proposing to lease the facilities for the county’s use. SCHOOL BOARD 14 projects requested totaling $8,175,628. $2,060,875 for School Bus Replacement, with $400,000+ in each of the next five years. $90,485 to repair the roof on King George Middle School, which was formerly the high school. The full amount was approved for funding in 2013-14. $236,266 for Supplemental Renovations to Potomac Elementary School, which is in the midst of $5,000,000 renovation to take place over the next two years. $60,000 was approved for a new phone/public address system in 2013-14. The rest includes a new loading dock, a dishwasher, and storage cabinets, split over three years, with $105,016 requested in 2014-15 and $71,250 in

COUNTY ADMINISTRATION The county administration is requesting six projects that total $955,000. $125,000 requested for a maintenance project to resurface the parking lot behind the Courthouse. The amount is still contained in the request, but no year is earmarked for funding. $215,000 in 2014-15 for continued building stabilization on Ralph Bunche Building work to maintain the integrity of the building, until a committee makes a recommendation to the Board of Supervisors to determine the best reuse option for the historic building. $65,000 funded in 2013-14 for carpeting and tile replacement in the Revercomb Administration building, built in 1994. $300,000 for a land purchase in Dahlgren for Waste Management to build a trash drop-off convenience center site at a location to be determined, requested in 2015-16. $100,000 toward turf replacement at the county sports stadium at the high school, with $50,000 requested in each of two years for 2016-17 and 2017-18.

Note: Replacement of the county’s AS 400 server for its computer system was done in late June of this year on an emergency basis at a cost of $45,000 when it was experiencing failures. $50,000 had originally been requested. The server is used in county applications which include tax collection, general ledger, payroll, accounts payable and utilities. Also, another project estimated at $50,000 had been requested for hardware/ software replacement program in 201314, but Quesenberry said that equipment was found and purchased at a much lower cost and the project was removed from the CIP. COMBINED COURTS One future project at $1,400,000 for the design of a new 40,000 square foot Courts Services building requested in 2017-18. The design and construction had in previous years been estimated at $15,400,000, but now the bulk of that estimated cost does not appear in the approved five-year CIP, since it is intended to be approved for out-years
beyond the current program. EMERGENCY SERVICES DEPARTMENT Six projects requested totaling $5,950,000, for cyclical replacement of required safety equipment. $915,000 for ambulance replacement program divided over the next five years. $4,050,000 to replace company 2 in Dahlgren area for combined fire and rescue station, with $150,000 in 2013-14 estimated for purchase of land, $400,000 list for design of a bulding in 2014-15 and $3,500,000 in 2015-16. $530,000 to replace Engine #21 in 2015-16. $400,000 toward a Regional Fire/EMS Training Center, with $100,000 in 201516, $100,000 in 2016-17, and $200,000 in 2017-18. $55,000 for replacement of incident command vehicle was removed from the CIP program, with the plan to instead switch out the equipment from the current vehicle and pursue a grant to go toward the cost.

KING GEORGE 70
King George approves eight capital projects for funding in 2013-14 fiscal year Phyllis Cook The King George Board of Supervisors approved eight projects to be funded during the current fiscal year, 2013-14, at a meeting on Aug. 20. Funding was also appropriated for the projects, coming to $1,091,445. The approved projects are in the first year of the county’s 2014-18 five-year Capital Improvement Program (CIP), which was also approved at the same meeting (see related article elsewhere in this guide.) This year’s approved projects closely followed the recommendations coming from Travis Quesenberry, King George county administrator, with some adjustments suggested by Supervisors at
a meeting on Aug. 6. $596,476, about half the funding, is coming from funds contained in this year’s capital projects budget that had been included in the current year’s adopted operating budget. $160,000 was re-appropriated from prior year capital funding, with $150,000 taken from a line within the capital fund that carries savings accrued from previous projects completed under budget. An additional $184,969 is expected to come from part of a surplus in the county’s prior year’s budget, 2012-13, following completion of the audit for last year. The approved projects for the current fiscal year include the following. PARKS & RECREATION Shiloh Park Phase II - $63,785. The project includes $25,000 toward half the amount needed for purchase and installation of a playground. Tim Smith, director of Parks & Recreation, said he will try to get a grant from a playground company to cover the rest. Quesenberry said that if that did not come through, he would look for the money elsewhere within the current
year’s budget. The other part of the current Phase II project includes $38,785 estimated for construction of a hard-pack surfaced trail around the basin of the park where all the fields are located, which Smith said measures about a mile. Phase II of the park construction originally included costs estimated at $130,000 to provide utilities to the park, including water, sewer and electrical. Quesenberry said that cost could be put off until the following year, 2014-15, and added as part of the construction of the concession building and restrooms. SCHOOL BOARD • School Bus Replacement - $432,175 toward annual replacement program of school vehicles. $272,175 comes from cash funding in the current year, with $160,000 from prior appropriations for this project. • King George Middle School Roof Repair - $90,485 for repairs to King George Middle School, which houses the 7th and 8th grades in the building which was the previous high school. • Potoma c E l e me nt ar y S cho ol Public Address System – $60,000 for
a new public address system for the school that is undergoing a $5,000,000 renovation project. Rob Benson, division superintendent, and the School Board had requested additional items to be included in what they called a ‘supplemental renovation project’ for some other needs at the school. Those included smaller-cost items bundled together to meet the threshold of at least $50,000 for a capital project. Regarding a request for a $20,000 dishwasher, it was pointed out that if he could find $8,000 within his current operating budget, he could use the savings from the $12,000 currently budgeted for purchasing styrofoam trays toward purchasing the dishwasher now. A portion of that funding might also be sought in the School Board’s Cafeteria Fund, which is allowed to carry forward balances from the previous years. It was suggested to Benson that he look within his operating budget for the concrete repairs or see if it could be added at the end of the larger renovation project.
