Richard Leggitt The warm affection King George residents have for popular Sheriff Steve Dempsey, who tragically lost his daughter and granddaughter in a car crash in August, will result in a group of hardy souls plunging into the frigid Potomac River on March 1. A Polar Plunge fundraiser to raise money for the Memorial Scholarship Fund set up for Bethany Dempsey and Lauren White is being hosted by Guy Booth and Tim’s II at Fairview Beach, 5411 Pavilion Drive in Fairview Beach, King George. Dempsey’s daughter and granddaughter were killed in a traffic accident near Millersville, MD, on Aug. 27. Bethany D a w n Dempsey, 37, and Lauren White, 15, were killed when a car in which they were p a s s e nge r s was hit from the rear by a truck. The chilly plunge on March 1 will be held at Fairview B e a c h beginning at 2 p.m. All funds raised by the plungers, as well as a portion of —Vic Mason p r o c e e d s from sales at the event, will go the Lauren Allie White Scholarship Fund.    Registration for the plungers begins at 11 a.m. In addition to the frigid dip in the river, there will be live music, raffles and prizes at the event. Persons interested in contributing without taking a cold dip, can contact Erin Hughes at (540) 775-7500. Longtime King George Circuit Court Clerk Vic Mason, who will be one of those hitting the icy water, said, “The people of King George epitomize what a community should be and are second to none when it comes to supporting their friends and neighbors.” “I am sure the event will be a huge success, and I urge everyone to show up and support it,” Mason said. “I know Sheriff Dempsey and his entire family are extremely grateful to the community for the continuing support that they have received. From speaking with him, I know that they are overwhelmed by the love and prayers that they continue to receive.” Sadly, Mason is not a stranger to the tragic loss of a loved one. His son, Nic, who was serving in the Army National Guard, was killed in Iraq just four days before Christmas in 2004.

“The people of King George epitomize what a community should be and are second to none when it comes to supporting their friends and neighbors.”

Fracking for natural gas and oil is on the agenda of this week’s King George Board of Supervisors meeting on Feb. 4, (following our press time) with presentations expected from three representatives from the Virginia Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy (DMME), including a state geologist. The presentations are part of the board’s fact-finding mission for educating itself and county residents on dealing with any potential applications that might come forward to ask for drilling permits in the county. Hydraulic fracturing – called fracking, or hydrofracking – is a process whereby chemicals and water are forced deep into the ground to fracture the shale rock strata to release natural gas. The process involves drilling more than a mile down, then turning sideways and drilling further to place piping. Explosives are set off inside the pipe to punch holes into it to disperse the pressured chemicals and water solution. This fracking process consumes large amounts of water, and the chemicals have been known to pollute aquifers either through the fracking process itself or

afterwards by fracking waste fluid seeping from large holding ponds. Accidents, spills, leaks and fluid disposal have contaminated water in some Pennsylvania and West Virginia communities. This week’s session on fracking, during a regular board meeting, follows a town hall held on the topic last week, organized by Dahlgren Supervisor Ruby Brabo with help by the Friends of the Dahlgren Railroad Heritage Trail. That took place on Jan. 29, at the UMW-Dahlgren. Former state Delegate Albert Pollard moderated the meeting, providing lots of pertinent information about fracking and about the Taylorsville Basin, which is a geological formation under this region being considered for potential drilling. Other speakers included Pablo Cuevas, chairman of the Rockingham Board of Supervisors, and Rockingham County Deputy County Administrator Stephen King, along with legal insight provided by senior attorney Rick Parrish from the Southern Environmental Law Center. The town hall drew about 130 people to hear about fracking issues, including Joe Grzeika, chairman of See Fracking, page 2

March meetings scheduled by county Board of Equalization Phyllis Cook The King George Board of Equalization has scheduled dates to meet with residents seeking appointments to discuss their new property assessments which went into effect on Jan. 1. The dates set so far will take place in mid-March on March 12, 13 and 14, with all three meetings scheduled from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. All meetings will take place in the board room of the Revercomb administration building located behind the county courthouse at 10459 Courthouse Drive. Appointments are being scheduled at 20-minute intervals.   Additional meeting dates will be set as necessary and will be advertised. The deadline for submitting a request for an appeal hearing for the equalization of real property

assessments is March 31. To make an appointment, property owners should call the Commissioner of the Revenue’s office, 775-4664 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays. The purpose of the meetings by the Board of Equalization is to hear objections or complaints on the property values that have been set and will be in effect on real estate for the next four years. Inequalities and potential errors having to do with acreage and property improvements can be addressed and brought to the attention of the Board of Equalization with an eye toward changing the assessment. The board is charged with hearing complaints, either oral or written, and giving consideration to increase, decrease or affirm the assessments. Taxpayers seeking a change should be prepared to overcome a

clear presumption in favor of the assessment.  The taxpayer or their agent must prove that the property is not uniform with other similar properties or prove that the property is assessed in excess of its fair market value or that an error as noted above has been made.  GENERAL PROPERTY REASSESSMENT FINDINGS The new assessments were derived from a year-long process by the county, with Blue Ridge Mass Appraisal performing the assessments. Blue Ridge had provided King George officials with a written summary of findings last fall. The summary indicated that the new assessments for the total value of taxable parcels is 4.1 percent lower than the last assessment that went

Landfill pick-for-pay is popular Phyllis Cook Waste Management District Manager Tom Cue has asked the King George Board of Supervisors to consider eliminating the quarterly tonnage cap for trash taken at the county landfill, but keeping the annual tonnage cap. The contract currently calls for an annual maximum of 1,248,000 tons of trash taken per year, with an additional cap of 312,000 tons per quarter. The notion to consider removing the quarterly capping limit and leaving the annual cap in place was suggested by Cue during a board meeting on Jan. 23, as part of his regular quarterly report. No decision on that potential contract change was made, with only the mention by Cue and no discussion from the board. Cue said he would bring the request up at a future quarterly meeting. Cue said the annual tonnage for 2013 was less than expected for the year. At $5 per ton for tipping fees to the county, the revenue brought in annually comes to about $6.22 million. That revenue is used by the county to pay for debt service on capital purchases and for small capital projects. Cue also updated the board on several issues, his regular practice, as follows. SECOND CONCENTRATOR Cue told Supervisors that a second concentrator is up and running. The concentrators are connected to landfill power plant turbines. The heat from the turbines burns off the leachate, which is the liquid runoff collected from

landfill trash cells. With both concentrators operating, it is expected that approximately 55,000 gallons of leachate will be treated per day, seven days per week. Cue said with both concentrators running, it would eliminate about 230 trucks trips on King George roads per month, with no need for the landfill to haul leachate to Richmond for disposal at a waste water treatment plant. HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE DAYS TBD Cue said the landfill would again host three household hazardous waste days during the new calendar year, with the first one to be set in April. Keep an eye on the county website and The Journal for dates when set. PROPOSAL FOR VERTICAL EXPANSION Cue reminded Supervisors about a future visit to the Sussex County Landfill, operated by Waste Management as Atlantic Waste Disposal, Inc. Chairman Joe Grzeika said he would work with board members and the county administrator to get some dates for a site visit. That landfill is permitted at a height of 510 feet. Cue has proposed a year ago that the board allow for vertical expansion of the landfill by allowing it to go 100 feet higher. That would require a contract change from the county as well as a permit amendment from the state’s Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) to increase See landfill, page 2

into effect four years ago, in 2010. Under state law the property assessments are to reflect fair market value of property in the county for taxation. The 4.1 percent drop in real estate values in King George is an average. That does not mean that all taxable parcels dropped, or dropped by that amount. Numerous parcel values went up in value. Blue Ridge said in November it calculated the total value of all taxable parcels in the county at $2,681,521,500. That compares to the prior assessed values in 2010 of $2,796,959,300. The $1.15 million difference will affect an equalized tax rate that will be calculated during the budget process. EQUALIZED TAX RATE TO BE SET LATER

Adjustments on the real estate tax rate will take place this spring, during the budget process and following a public hearing by the Board of Supervisors. During budget deliberations, Supervisors will be provided an “equalized” tax rate by county finance staff. With real estate assessments down on the average, that means the equalized rate will be a tax figure that is higher than the current 53-cents per $100 valuation for real estate property taxes. The $1.15 million difference in the value of taxable real estate is expected to provide an equalized tax rate that is 2 to 4-cents higher than the current 53-cents per $100 valuation. The equalized tax rate figure will reflect a calculation of what the tax See Property, page 2

School Board proposes 3-percent pay increases Phyllis Cook The King George School Board last week viewed a preliminary proposed 2014-15 budget of $37,385,450 and made changes that would increase the request to $38,067,186. For the current year, 201314, appropriations are set at $35,603,037. The main change agreed to by the School Board would add twopercent more to the one-percent cost-of-living raises presented by Superintendent Rob Benson in his initial budget draft. Those raises would translate to a one-percent increase across the salary scales and then a step being granted to all employees. That’s only if the School Board follows through on that action in an actual budget to be adopted by the School Board, expected to take place in May. The cost of the one-percent increase has been estimated by

Benson at $212,757, with the cost of the step increase estimated at an additional $535,401. The budget session took place during a regular business meeting on Jan. 27, and followed presentations by two employee groups, the King George Education Association (KGEA) and a local chapter of the Virginia Professional Educators (VPE). Both organizations said the top priority for teachers and other employees was higher pay. The next budget session by the School Board will take place next week during its regular business meeting on Monday, Feb. 10. A required public hearing on the School Board budget is scheduled to take place the following week on Feb. See raises, page 2

The Journal

Fracking: Senate bill passes From page 1 the King George governing body. Planning Commissioners Chris Cox and Bill Robie were also spotted separately in the audience. GRZEIKA COMMENTS Following last week’s forum, Grzeika told The Journal he attended as the board’s chairman at Brabo’s request and to also meet with the visiting officials from Rockingham County “to better understand their experience as it related to a proposed fracking well in their county.” Grzeika praised Pollard’s moderating of the session, adding the various presentations were balanced and informative for those new to the fracking issue. Grzeika said he looked forward to the county’s continued fact-finding and to a county-wide forum on fracking to be scheduled in the future after more facts are gathered from various sources. He also said, “There are a number of pieces in play and as we work through our fact- finding we will also gain a better idea where the General Assembly is, and what potential legislative changes we may want to discuss with our state delegates prior to next year’s session.” STATE LEGISLATION Also, later last week, a bill initiated by state Senator Richard Stuart passed the senate, Senate Bill 48. If that legislation goes forward it could add another layer of environmental review to applications to the DMME for mining activities in this region including oil and gas drilling. The state plays a primary role with permitting for oil and gas mining, with localities also having a secondary important role, depending in part on the strength of their zoning ordinances. Grzeika also told The Journal he wanted to discuss with the board the possibility of asking the George Washington Regional Commission and the Northern Neck Planning District “to partner to work on a set of model ordinances that we regionally could use that would have some uniformity and provide a better approach to the protection of the aquifer and the regulations and controls for oil and gas wells in the region generally.” POLLARD’S ADVICE During the forum last week,

Pollard noted several of the risks of fracking, including what he called, “the industrialization of a rural landscape,” the potential for pollution of the water supply by chemicals used in the fracking process, as well as a diminution of water quantity, with about six million gallons per day used per ‘frack.’ He also noted that noise is another by-product of the process, with loud compression stations running 24/7 as part of the process. Pollard said mitigation of some of the risks can include strengthening local zoning ordinances regarding industrial noise, traffic, road damage, and setback requirements for well pads and processing from residences, schools, churches and other types of buildings. He warned that truck traffic, associated with fracking, can be excessive, constant, and noisy, in addition to causing costly infrastructure damage by tearing up roads. The truck traffic can be generated during all phases of the mining process, including by hauling in machinery and piping during construction, and hauling off sand and waste water fracking fluid at various points. In addition, there is the potential for a lot more truck traffic to haul in water, if water it is not taken directly from the aquifer under the industrialized site. One argument being used by drilling companies in favor of mining is that it will bring jobs to a region. But Pollard countered that notion, saying that drilling companies bring in their own experienced work gangs to fill those jobs. FUTURE TOWN MEETING When Supervisors feel they have a handle on enough of the facts about drilling and fracking to be able to answer questions from the public, the board expects to hold one or more town meetings to do so. That could be later, rather than sooner, with the legislation, as noted above, working its way through the state’s General Assembly. In addition to a future town meeting to be set for a presentation, along with questions from the audience, all reporting to the board on the fracking issue is slated to take place during public meetings. COUNTY ORDINANCES County attorney Eric Gregory reported in January on the county’s

existing zoning ordinances, saying they address exploratory drilling for oil and/or natural gas by a required special exception permit in the A-1 and A-2 districts. Special exception permits require two advertised public hearings, first one by the Planning Commission and the second by the Board of Supervisors in King George. Gregory said the special exception permit requirements require site plans, ingress and egress plans, drill site plans, erosion and sediment control plans. They also require an environmental impact assessment and operation plan, which must first be filed with DMME and then also filed with a special exception permit application. In King George, drill sites are currently limited to four acres, with no drill site within 500 feet of an occupied residence. Gregory had noted some of what was repeated by Pollard and lawyers at last week’s forum. He had told the board it had the authority to impose additional other requirements if those were incorporated into the zoning ordinance to address noise, dust, traffic impacts, setbacks for drill sites from schools, occupied residences as already included, and churches. Gregory had also cautioned that the existing zoning ordinance does not currently address compression stations, but only addresses drilling sites. That’s likely because the fracking technology has moved ahead of the county’s ordinance. Compression stations are more often utilized in natural gas drilling, with the county’s ordinance largely addressing exploratory oil drilling. Gregory also had noted that regulatory rules are complex in terms of the potential zoning regulation possibilities and in regard to potential environmental impacts. He also said there may be other kinds of related issues in terms of the influx of residents brought in by drillers, including those having to do with temporary and/or transient residents and their impacts on such things as emergency services, law enforcement, schools, etc. Supervisors agreed last month with Gregory’s suggestion that following their fact-finding, the county’s ordinance should be sent to the county Planning Commission after the board agrees to parameters it would want the Commission to address in regard to amendments to the ordinance.

17. That hearing will be at 6 p.m. at the School Board office. The schedule does not give the School Board much time to tinker further with budget numbers, with no additional budget meetings currently scheduled at this time. In the meantime, Benson said he will hold a series of budget meetings for staffs at each of the schools. After a budget request is finalized, Benson is expected to post it on the School Board website for the public to view and comment.

the height of the landfill. The existing landfill contract addresses the landfill height, saying, “At no time shall the height of the surface of the facility exceed 275 feet from sea level…” The benefit to the county to allow the proposed expansion would be to add about 15 more years to the life of the landfill. That would mean close to $100 million additional revenue for the county over the extended timeframe proposed. Cue has said that if the request to increase the permitted height of the landfill were to be approved, it would not be out of line with the heights of other landfills in the state, such as the one in Sussex, two in Fairfax County permitted at over 300-feet high, and one at Bethel near Newport News permitted to go to 375 feet. The average height of a landfill in the United States is 320 feet. PICK-FOR-PAY Cue said the Pick-for-Pay program is popular, with about three dozen groups so far this year asking to participate. He said it would begin in March, with last year’s program described as a big success. Under the program, $500 donations are provided to organizations in exchange for groups helping pick up trash, mostly along a stretch of Route 3. Groups must have insurance and provide adult supervision for youth groups or school clubs. Large signs are placed along the designated road area and helmets, vests, pickers and bags are provided, with the bagged trash collected by the landfill after the project is complete. To sign up, call the main number to the King George County Landfill, 775-3123.

BUDGET HIGHLIGHTS The revised budget numbers were distributed following the changes suggested by the School Board. Compared to the current year, 2013-14, appropriations, the total budget request would go from $35,603,037 to $38,067,186, which is an increase of $2,464,149. State revenue is estimated to go up, with Benson saying the increase is mainly due to a change in the composite index calculation by the state. Compared to the current year appropriations for 2013-14, state revenue is expected to go from $19,468,012 to $21,097,451, which is an increase of $1,629,439. But more local revenue is also being requested. Benson and the School Board are currently looking at asking for an increase of $869,596, that would take the local county contribution from the current year of $14,349,353 to $15,218,949. Benson’s budget documents indicate that the required amount of local revenue from the county is currently set by the state

for next year at $10,019,315, which is $4.3 million less. Benson is basing the proposed 2014-15 budget request on an average daily membership (ADM) of 4,130 students, compared to the current year’s budget which was built on 4,100 students. Federal Grant Revenue in Fund 252 is expected to decrease by $74,886 to $1,290,786. State Miscellaneous Revenue is anticipated to go from the current $30,000 to $70,000, an increase of $40,000. The School Board requested that tuition reimbursement be doubled from $12,000 to $24,000. The tuition reimbursement is granted to eligible employees by policy on a firstcome-first-served basis each year to help defray the cost of additional coursework related their positions. VRS $770,206 is estimated by Benson as the cost of the 2.9 percent “fully funded” increase for the Virginia Retirement System (VRS) payment by the division. Benson also told The Journal that $264,720 is the cost of the one-percent VRS offset for year 3. Benson provided comments to The Journal on the rising costs of VRS, saying, “The VRS costs are obviously a major issue for us to navigate for the next several years.” Benson added, “My opinion is that very few understand how the burden to fully fund the VRS has been quietly pushed down to localities by the General Assembly.” Benson also said, “Our total VRS costs for this coming year will increase by $1.035 million. This is an increase out of the budget development gate over which we have no control.”

Property: March dates From page 1 rate should be for the county to collect the same amount of taxes as in the current year, but based on the new, lower real estate assessments. The equalized tax rate amount is dependent on the result of the calculation of what each penny on the tax rate would be realize

for the county. In recent years, the calculation of what a penny on the tax rate generates in tax revenue has fluctuated around $260,000 of county revenue per penny. Whatever tax rate is adopted by the Board of Supervisors in spring 2014 will be reflected in tax bills due in June 2014 when the first half-year payment is due.

VIRGINIA VIEWPOINTS

Movie lines that have become a part of our popular culture People have always enjoyed quoting poetry, lines in Shakespearean plays, and famous oratory. “For he that sheds his blood with me this day, shall be my brother,” from Henry V is stirring. And of course, Lincoln’s “… government of the people, by the people and for the people” from the Gettysburg David S. Kerr address is legend. But, those of us who are products of the 20th and 21st centuries have yet another source of famous and memorable quotes. It’s hardly Shakespeare, some would say it’s the height of triviality, but movie lines, those snippets of wisdom and humor, whether said by Clark

Gable or Sandra Bullock, have a way of making themselves a part of our popular culture. No one really knows how many feature length films have been made. A good guess is over a million. Many don’t generate a single line that audiences remember and repeat. And not all great movies are known for a particular line or phrase. But there are a few, where these snippets have taken on a life of their own. Some people quote them never even having seen the movie. Perhaps the most famous movie line ever is from Gone with the Wind, when Rhett Butler, after being plaintively asked by Scarlett what she will do without him says, “Frankly my dear I don’t give a damn.” John Wayne was a constant source of memorable lines. His famous, “Never say you’re sorry, it’s a sign of weakness,” from She Wore a Yellow Ribbon is one an old boss of mine

Letters to the Editor Dear Editor: At their meeting on January 14, 2014, the members of the King George County Planning Commission voted unanimously to recommend that the Board of Supervisors deny a request by Walnut Hill LLC to rezone 6.7482 acres of Tax Map 9, Parcel 34 from Rural Agricultural Zoning District (A-2) to General Trade Zoning District (C-2) (Case Number 13-05-Z02). This property is adjacent to the Bayberry Estates subdivision, where my family and I have owned a home and have resided since May 1985. I am opposed to this rezoning request for the following reasons: 1. Increased noise: Most of the property is currently wooded and this provides a buffer from the noise generated by traffic on Routes 301 and 206. If the rezoning request is approved and the property is developed commercially, the woodlands will likely be removed and the noise buffer will no longer exist. Moreover, there will be increased noise for residents of the subdivision generated by the commercial activity on the property. 2. Traffic: There is only one entrance into and exit from the Bayberry subdivision. Since the Walmart opened, Bayberry residents have encountered more traffic traveling southbound on Route 301, especially on weekdays between the hours of 3-6 p.m., when many Dahlgren employees are leaving work (and some undoubtedly stopping to shop at Walmart). New commercial development close to the entrance to Bayberry will likely lead to more traffic congestion and the hazards that accompany it. It is difficult enough for Bayberry residents to turn onto Route 301 now; commercial development of this property will make it worse. 3. Property values: There is a risk of a negative impact on property values for Bayberry residents. Depending on the type of commercial development, there may be additional parking lots, bright lighting, and the possibility of increased crime. 4. Impact on wildlife: Much of Parcel 34, which contains a total of 128.9425 acres, is currently wooded. There is an abundance of wildlife on the parcel, including birds, squirrels, deer, and rabbits. The presence of wildlife enhances the quality of life for our family. Commercial development on a portion of this parcel could have a negative impact on the habitat and presence of wildlife near our residence. In summary, the property that is the subject of this rezoning request is simply too close to our subdivision to be rezoned for commercial development. I respectfully urge the Board of Supervisors to accept the recommendation of the Planning Commission and to deny this rezoning request. Respectfully, H. Benjamin (Ben) Ashton, II King George

To the Editor: (copy of letter sent to Virginia General Assembly) RE: Potential act of malfeasance in office and neglect of duty by the current Virginia State Attorney General, Mr. Mark Herring Dear Honorable Delegates and Senators, I am writing to the Virginia General Assembly to request their action on an incident that occurred Thursday, January 23, 2014. The incident in question was Virginia State Attorney General Mark Herring’s alleged declaration during an interview with NPR that he would not defend Article I, Section 15-A (commonly known as the marriage amendment) of the Virginia State Constitution. The amendment recognizes marriage as “only a union between one man and one woman”. The attorney general’s declaration could be considered a potential act of malfeasance in office and neglect of duty which requires action by the Virginia General Assembly. According to the attorney general’s alleged statement, a thorough legal review of the constitutional amendment was completed and he decided it was unconstitutional and would not be defended in pending federal court cases. I am unsure of the thoroughness of the review since Mr. Herring had been in office less than two weeks prior to issuing his declaration. The attorney general did not stop with his refusal to defend the Virginia State Constitution but added insult to injury by allegedly declaring the State of Virginia would support the plaintiffs seeking to overturn Article I, Section 15-A. Is this the type of leadership and representation Virginia should receive from the state’s chief lawyer? I trust your answer is no. An extremely dangerous precedent is beginning if an elected official can unilaterally decide parts of the constitution are not defensible based upon personal opinion. The attorney general took an oath of office which states “that I will support the Constitution of the United States, and the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge all the duties incumbent upon me as ……” His personal opinion was to remain at the door once the oath of office was taken. Apparently, the attorney general has no regard for the oath or the constitution. These actions require legislative intervention since our state deserves to be represented by officials willing to

The

used to quote constantly. That’s one of the reasons I don’t work for him anymore. And then, summing up the Duke’s philosophy of life, from The Man who Shot Liberty Valance, is “…out here a man settles his own problems.” Casablanca is one of the most quoted films ever. Humphrey Bogart’s, “…of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine,” captures the spirit of the film. Although it was used in the title of another movie - “play it again Sam,” - the line was never actually used on the movie. Most movie line recollections seem to be a bit male oriented, but not always. One line, from the movie Jerry Maguire is more romantic. When Tom Cruise is making his plea to get his girl back her response, after his long winded speech, is simply, “You had me at hello.” One of my personal favorites is the Baroness, in

the Sound of Music, telling the Captain, just after the two have broken off their engagement, “…and somewhere out there is a young lady who I think will never become a nun.” Science fiction offers no shortage of lines. “The force will be with you,” has been a staple for decades, as has the tag line for Aliens, starring Sigourney Weaver, “in space no one can hear you scream.” Now, that’s scary. In terms of the scope of literature movie lines are short lived. Unlike Shakespeare, or Keats, or Browning, they won’t be quoted hundreds of years from now. But, they still sum up a feeling, bring to mind an emotion, or recall a larger story. In that regard, they have earned a place in our culture.

conduct their duties in a responsible manner. Mr. Herring admitted during the interview that he voted for the marriage amendment in 2006 which passed with the support of 57% of the voting electorate. With the attorney general’s refusal to defend the amendment, a legal and binding vote by a majority of Virginia voters is nullified. The attorney general is required by law to defend the Virginia Constitution as the state’s chief lawyer. Failure to abide by the law represents a potential act of malfeasance in office and a neglect of duty. Article IV, Section 17 of the Virginia State Constitution identifies the aforementioned as acts punishable by impeachment. In addition, Virginia State Code §24.2-233 recognizes neglect of duty as grounds for recall by a circuit court judge. The general assembly must act to maintain law and order in the State of Virginia. An elected official who commits a potential act of malfeasance in office or neglects his duty should be dealt with by the legislative branch according to the rules outlined in the Virginia State Constitution. Thank you for your service to the State of Virginia and your willingness to review my letter. Respectfully yours, Mr. LaVerne Waybright Lovettsville, VA

differential treatment shown to her, rather than the respect due her position. In looking back to a few years ago, the only female supervisor on the board ever, was a little difficult, therefore the older supervisors would probably unconsciously tend to carry this perception over to any new female supervisor. I observe at least seven, none of which are bad in my opinion. It is no great wonder the other supervisors felt necessary to select one of their own, Jim Howard, who had been a supervisor with the older supervisors not many years ago. For now it appears Ms. Brabo is still not considered part of the team in their thinking. Her many capabilities, to me, are appropriate for the inevitable future for King George. The Dahlgren District is further ahead than the other districts in many ways. The stated objective of the Comprehensive Plan is to Stay Rural. These gentlemen state this as their campaign slogan each time. How has this been demonstrated? By opening another Dollar Store? Ms. Brabo is the more forward thinking in comparison for the other Districts. When her experience and enthusiasm is reconsidered her fresh outlook for KG could be an asset as a viable part of the team. She understands the need for an Economic Development Strategic Plan. KG Is moving forward, therefore some serious action can not be overlooked, wherein fresh talent can be pushed aside. Howard Yarus Dahlgren

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, you are inspired to take on the world, but you may want to focus on smaller goals this week. Finishing a long-lingering work project is a viable option. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, something does not seem to be falling into place. Take stock of things at home and at work to see if you can crack this nut. A little more investigation many be necessary. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 You may be offered a professional opportunity this week that is too good to pass up, Gemini. Despite this great offer, do your best to stay focused on work for the next several days. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Exercise caution and do not jump to any conclusions at work, Cancer. While you may know what your boss expects from you, it is better to wait to hear what he or she has to say. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, you can envision exciting adventures ahead, and those times will be here before you know it. Channel your enthusiasm so you can get a head start on planning your adventure. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, you have a desire to be different from everyone else this week. It’s good to be original, but don’t stray too far off the beaten path or you may find yourself lost.

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, a friend may shock you by doing something really outrageous. You do not know what to make of this change in personality, but do your best to take it in stride. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, work figures to put a lot on your plate in the coming week. You can handle everything that comes your way, so long as you keep your cool and continue to work hard. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 You may be tempted to sneak off and play hooky from work, Sagittarius. Just make sure you handle all of your obligations first. Now is not the best time to kick up your heels. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, you have so much to do now that your mind may be in a complete jumble. Others will come at you with questions, but take a deep breath and answer them one at a time. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Change is not the best idea right now, Aquarius. It is much better to stick with the status quo for a little while longer. Then you will have enough stability to make a change. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, you have many new ideas about how to get rich quick, but you will probably want to find more sensible ways to earn a living.

In a time where families are pulled in a million different directions, New Life Ministries in Colonial Beach is bringing families and the community together. They have partnered with Upward Sports, the world’s largest Christian sports league for children. Upward Sports attracts more than 550,000 kids each year with its unique approach—teaching skills for the sports arena and values for life. If you are a parent with three kids who need to be taken to three different playing fields each Saturday, you now have a better option. All practices and games will be held at the same fields next to New Life Ministries on McKinney Blvd. in Colonial Beach. “I really want to see people from all backgrounds come out and play in this league. It doesn’t matter what denomination your home church is or even if you go to church. We just want to bring people together in a safe, positive environment where kids can have fun and parents can too,” said John Kramer, league director at New Life. To avoid player and parent burn-

out, Upward Sports Leagues limit the time commitment to one practice and one game per week. Upward Sports Leagues are 10-week programs that incorporate character-building principles into the sports experience. “As a volunteer, you do not have to be athletic—or even a sports enthusiast—Upward Sports has a spot for the whole family,” said Steve Morgan, league director at First Baptist Church of Lawrenceville, Ga, one of the many Upward locations around the country. Details: The soccer league will start in the Spring with the first practice being held on March 17th. There will be a mandatory evaluation day on Feb. 22. You can come any time between 9 a.m.- 2 p.m. at New Life and expect to stay about 30 minutes to an hour. Early registration is $65 until Feb. 16 and will increase to $75 after the 16th. You can register your child at: http://registration.upward.org/ UPW54385. If you are interested in volunteering as a coach or referee or have any questions please call John Kramer at (434) 945-0306.

Icebreaker Fishing Tournament to benefit local kids Mark Fike On Sunday, Feb. 23, and again on Saturday, March 8, the Weekend Bassers Club will be holding their annual fundraiser bass fishing tournament at Motts Run Reservoir to fund the Kids’ Fishing Derby to be held on June 7 of this year. Each year, this fishing club volunteers their time and efforts to raise money to expose area kids to fishing at Motts Run. The Reservoir is a gorgeous place to relax, whether you’re simply sitting on the bank in a chair watching others fish, grilling a burger on a grill, canoeing, or fishing for any of the fish that thrive in Motts. There

is a concession stand, bait, docks, port-a-johns, canoe rentals, trails to hike, and plenty of good panfishing, decent bass fishing and some really good catfishing on the reservoir. Don Minor is the head of the facility out there and does an outstanding job keeping the place up and running in a professional, but laid back fashion. Minor’s staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and they enjoy their work. Motts is just one of those places you want to take your kids. The Reservoir is hosting two days of icebreaker fishing to anglers that want to try to show off their skills at one of the tougher times of year to fish. The fishing has been really good

some years on Icebreaker Days and tough on others. The bottom line is that the Weekend Bassers and anglers that show up to fish don’t necessarily just fish to show off. A little of that might happen, though, if someone does well. However, my interaction with the members I have been around has been quite good. These guys just want to pass on their love for the outdoors. They are good anglers wanting to show kids how to have a good time in a fun, safe and wholesome way. A bit of fellowshipping is likely to happen at the dock, both before and after the tournament. If you have never been out to the tournament

and have one of the days open, consider giving it a try. It costs just $35 to enter. $5 goes towards the “big fish” award. There is a 70% payback, but 30% goes to the Kids’ Fishing Derby and/or other fisheries’ projects for Motts Run. Tournament Rules: Two people per boat Five fish limit per boat (must cull fish prior to weigh in) Live well or cooler Size limit- 10” and over Artificial bait only No drugs or alcohol Contact information: Ray Thomas 540-898-7542, Dickie Musselman

Buddy has been a Hunter Education Instructor for a long time and was very timely in letting me know about these dates.

The point of contact (POC) is Stan Burrell at 540-582-5492. March 22- the class is in Westmore-

land at Oak Grove Baptist Church. Rick Wilks is the POC at 540-775-4625. Go to http://www.dgif.virginia. gov/hunting/education/ in order to register. The next class in our area does not appear to be offered until July 21. Other Events March 15- At Flat Run Baptist Church in Locust Grove, there is a Sportsman’s Banquet at 2:00 p.m. This is a family-oriented dinner with wild game, hunting and fishing speakers and tables with information. We went last year and thoroughly enjoyed it. POC is Mike Redgrave at 540-809-4077.

RCC’s Institute for Lifelong Learning delves into colonial history The latest course from the Rappahannock Community College Educational Foundation’s Rappahannock Institute for Lifelong Learning (RILL) presents historian Phillip Greenwalt on the topic of “Athens of the New World—Founding Fathers of the Northern Neck.” The three sessions will be held on Feb. 21 and 28, and March 7 (Fridays), 1-3 p.m., at RCC’s Warsaw Campus.

The Northern Neck, between the Potomac and Rappahannock Rivers, was home to some of the most important founding fathers of the United States. Three of our early presidents—George Washington, James Madison, and James Monroe—were all born in the area, as were Richard Henry Lee and Francis Lightfoot Lee, the only brothers to sign the Declaration of Indepen-

dence. Though not a Northern Neck native, John Marshall (one of the greatest Supreme Court justices) spent much time on this historic peninsula, and received some of his schooling from James Monroe. Students of this course will learn about these great men’s early beginnings, and about their many contributions to American history. Phillip Greenwalt is currently

employed as a historian with the National Park Service at George Washington Birthplace National Monument in Westmoreland, Virginia, and at Thomas Stone National Historic Site in Port Tobacco, Maryland. He holds a bachelor’s degree in history from Wheeling Jesuit University, and a master’s degree in American history from George Mason University. Green-

walt’s appreciation and interest in American history is both political and military. His first co-authored publication, “Bloody Autumn, The Shenandoah Valley Campaign of 1864,” was published in Nov. 2013. In addition, he regularly speaks to Civil War Round Tables, and is a core contributor to the blog “Emerging Civil War” (www. emergingcivilwar.com).

Advance registration, with a tuition payment of $35, is required to take this course. For more information on “Athens of the New World— Founding Fathers of the Northern Neck” and other RILL courses, or to register, please call Sharon Drotleff at RCC’s Educational Foundation office (804-333-6707, or toll-free at 877722-3679), or e-mail her at sdrotleff@rappahannock.edu.

Save the date — March 11 is the Virginia’s Statewide Tornado Drill Registration is now open for the March 11 Statewide Tornado Drill. Businesses and organizations, schools and colleges, and families and individuals can practice taking cover from tornadoes by participating in this annual safety exercise, set for 9:45 a.m. Here’s a look back at tornadoes in Virginia during 2013: • Five tornadoes were recorded (four EF0 and one EF1). • There were no reported injuries. • Property damage was nearly $72,000. • One tornado occurred in April and four struck in June. During 2012: • 11 tornadoes were recorded (eight EF0 and three EF1). • There were no deaths, but six people were injured. • Property damage totaled $3 million. • The highest number of tornados occurred in June (six).

“During the past three years, 67 twisters struck Virginia,” said Brett Burdick, acting state coordinator for emergency management. “April 2011 was particularly dangerous when ten people died and more than 100 were injured. Tornadoes are common in Virginia. In fact, three struck south-

east Virginia Jan. 11, so it is essential that everyone knows what to do when a tornado warning is issued.”  The annual drill is a joint effort of the National Weather Service and the Virginia Department of Emergency Management. To start the drill, at approximately 9:45 a.m., a test tornado

warning will be sent by the NWS to NOAA Weather Radios.  These radios will sound a tone alert and show a message (or flash to indicate a message) to simulate what people will hear or see during an actual tornado warning. The test message then will be broadcast by many local radio and

TV stations. Registration for the Statewide Tornado Drill is not required, but residents are encouraged to sign up to show their support. Learn more about tornado safety, how to hold a drill, and how to register for the drill at www.ReadyVirginia.gov.

TOP-RATED CANCER CARE

RIGHT HERE AT

HOME.

During 2011: • 51 tornadoes hit, the second highest number on record (87 struck in 2004). • In April, 10 people died and more than 100 were injured. • Most tornadoes occurred during April, but tornadoes also were recorded in March, May, August, Sept., Oct. and Nov. • In April, 212 homes and 17 businesses were destroyed; more than 1,050 homes and businesses were damaged. • Nearly every part of Virginia experienced tornadoes, including mountain areas. One-third of the tornadoes struck at night when people were asleep.

Sammy Nelson Retired U.S. Marine

VCU Massey Cancer Center radiation therapy, now at Spotsylvania Regional Cancer Center. When Sammy Nelson had a seizure, his loyal bulldog Bella alerted Sammy’s son, who rushed him to the hospital. When it was determined Sammy had a brain tumor, another team went into action: the top-rated radiation oncology specialists of VCU Massey Cancer Center and the clinical experts at Spotsylvania Regional Cancer Center. “You really feel the love this team has for their patients,” says the former Marine. According to Sammy, having that nationally recognized care just minutes from his home conveys a reassuring message: “We’re here to take care of you. We’ll beat this cancer together.”

After a heartbreaking loss to James Monroe during last year’s Battlefield District Championship, the Foxes boys and girls swim teams have redeemed themselves by winning the first ever 4A Conference 22 Championship.

King George Foxes girls T&F place first at Woodberry “We don’t have a lot of exceptional runners, but we have a lot of very good runners,” Foxes indoor track & field coach. At the Woodberry Forest meet, we barely lost the boys’ 500-meters, but we placed second through fourth in that event.” —Rudy Pekarek

KGHS winter track & field standout, Heidi Colwell Leonard Banks Sports editor The Foxes track teams have put on their fame and shifted into post season Conference and Regional Championship mode. On Thursday, the girls blasted the field of four schools with a first place finish (155 points), while the boys finished second (97 points). Woodberry Forest, an all boy’s school placed first with 208 points. The Foxes girls’ relays teams swept the competition with first place finishes. Most notable, the girls’ 4x400 meter relay team, featuring Brooke West, Heidi Colwell, Ashley Perkins and Brittany Williams missed state qualification by a few hundreds of a second for state qualification, with a time of 4:26.87. Thus far this season, the Foxes have lived up to their traditional winning expectations. Not only have they placed first in their two scored invitationals, including the Caroline Icebreaker, but they placed third in the Fork Union Invitational meet that featured over 40 schools. As for the ultimate State Championship meet, the Foxes will have their largest contingent of athletes in school history. With top overall point producers Davion Hutt, and Heidi Colwell leading their respective teams, the Foxes have the potential to be strong.

“I’ve been doing a lot better this year than I did last year,” Colwell said. “As a team, we continue to improve in every meet.” “We don’t have a lot of exceptional runners, but we have a lot of very good runners,” Foxes indoor track & field coach Rudy Pekarek said. “At the Woodberry Forest meet, we barely lost the boys’ 500-meters, but we placed second through fourth in that event.”

Up and coming standouts to the Foxes track & field program are Fernando DelaRosa, and DeAsia Callanan. After being injured last year, DelaRosa has returned to distinguish himself as another go-to athlete in both the 4x400, and 4x800 events. Also, he has placed strong in the 500 meters throughout the season. Callanan has consistently performed well in the triple jump, 55-meter, and 300-meter runs. Equipment Donation Drive The Foxes track & field program is currently hosting a letter equipment donation drive, where athletes are sending out five letters to people to help pay for their port-a-pit, which will cost the school $11,000.

Colonial Beach Drifters blast Lancaster Red Devils Leonard Banks Sports editor Throughout the season, rivals have felt the wrath of the lights-out Lady Drifter path to success. With four games left in the season, the Drifters (6-0, 14-1) are sitting Drifters atop the 1A Conference 43 standings, with a three-game conference lead over the second Red Devils place Rappahannock Raiders (2-2, 6-4). It’s a virtual certainty that they are in the driver’s seat of a potential conference championship, and regional berth. However, from now to the end of the season, it’s every player for themselves, and every team, no matter what the seed will have upset or spoiler in the forefront of their minds. Nothing is a given, whether you’re in first place or nestled on the cusp of second place; it’s going to be a free-for-all from this point on. Under the auspices of Keith Dickerson, the Drifters have built a minidynasty of winning, and the neversay-die “Black & Gold” school pride is brighter than ever.

Without the focus of a championship, or media attention, Drifter girls’ junior varsity head Drifter JV coach Audra LucasPeyton has quietly flown under the radar as one of the area’s best coaches. Red Devil JV She has worked closely with both the Colonial Beach Middle School and with Drifter varsity girls’ head coach Keith Dickerson to produce four back-to-back years of solid basketball players capable playing on the varsity level. In light of her unselfish devotion, the Drifters junior varsity girls’ basketball team has won 12 games, while losing one. Most recently, the Drifters junior varsity team toppled the visiting Lancaster Red Devils, 50-17.

Lancaster versus CBHS On Friday, at the Drifterdome, amid the cheers of die-hard Drifter fans, the “Black & Gold” simply out-hustled and defeated Lancaster, 55-34. In first quarter, Carey led the Drifters to a 7-0 start, as she scored four points off of fast breaks. She later finished the game with 19 points and seven assists. Although the Drifters led the Red Devils by 11 with less than two minutes left in the quarter, the Red Devils scored two jumpers, courtesy of Aaliyah Morris and Trenae Henderson, to cut the Drifter lead to 16-8. In the second quarter, the Red Devils opened the period with a 6-2 run that narrowed their deficit to three. However, the Drifters changed the momentum and broke the Red Devils’ rhythm, slowing down the game by utilizing a four-corner offense. The change in strategy worked, as the Drifters closed out the quarter with a 6-0 run, and a 13-point lead going into halftime. In the third quarter, with Morris dishing out assists and scoring in the post, the Red Devils surged into the period with 7-2 run. The Drifters responded by breaking the Lancaster press defense and scoring on

four fast breaks to keep a 10-point margin of separation. However, the Drifters accumulated eight team fouls, putting the Red Devils in the bonus situation. In spite of foul issues, and Carey leaving the game due to a leg injury, the Drifters fought off a barrage of desperation shots from the Red Devils to increase their lead to 47-29, with less than five minutes left in the game. Newman sealed the win with five points, and an assist to Alexia Wilson, giving the Drifters a 52-34 lead with less than 30 seconds on the clock. Emily Parks and Wilson scored the final two points of the game on the foul line, giving the Drifters the victory. Although Carey had suffered a leg injury that forced her to leave the game, during the first part of the fourth quarter, the Drifters’ supporting cast, led by Newman with 11 total points, and Gould with 14 boards, finished the game with a 21 point lead. Rappahannock vs CBHS On Monday evening, the Drifters dispensed of conference rival Rappahannock, 50-40. Carey scored a game-high 24 points, while Newman added 10 points. On Feb. 6, the Drifters will travel to the unfriendly confines of Northumberland. Game time is 8 p.m.

Although the Red Devils managed to break double digits with 10 points before the half, the Drifters continued to own the post with Lewis dominating the lanes, and scoring each time she secured an inside post. In the third quarter, the Drifters nailed the coffin shut on the Red Devils, as they pitched a shutout on the defensive end, and extended their lead to 40-10. Shaleah Rudolph poured in four points and three assists, while Jordan McGinnis added four points and three steals during the period. After Rudolph started the final quarter with eight uninterrupted points, to extend the Drifter lead to 48-10, the Red Devils offense finally showed up. The Red Devils scored sevens point during a period of one minute and 20 seconds, but it was too little too late, as Drifter forward Libby Hipple scored the final basket, just inside the perimeter, with no seconds on the clock.

W&L Eagles lose to Rappahannock Raiders Richard Leggitt Red-hot Treshaun Brown continued his torrid scoring pace Friday, as the W&L boys’ basketball team battled Rappahannock, but the effort fell short as Raiders the Raiders narrowly handed the Eagles their second Northern Neck District loss of the season, 57 to 56. Eagles “Treshaun Brown gave all he had, scoring 32 points, but had a few costly turnovers late, only because he wanted the game so much, and he pressed himself,” said Washington & Lee Coach George Hunter. Brown hit three three-pointers to keep the Eagles in the tight game which saw W&L up by one 15 to 14 at the end of the first quarter, tied

with the Raiders at the half at 23 all and tied at the end of the third quarter at 39 in the game played at Rappahannock. “Milan Bullock seemed to be the only other player that came to play adding 10 points and 10 rebounds,” said Hunter. “The snow causing us not to practice has really hurt us the last couple of games, but I am sure we will bounce back. My boys just have to get that fire back.” For the Raiders, Marcus Byrd had 21 points and Kelvamte Ellia had 12 points. No other players on either team were in double figures. W&L is now 8-5 for the season and 4-2 in the conference and has four games remaining: Colonial Beach away on the Feb. 5, Essex at home on the 7th, Lancaster at home on the 13th and Northumberland at home on the 14th.

After a pre-game huddle, members of the KGMS school volleyball team prepare to take on the KGMS faculty.

KGMS volleyball team battles faculty members Leonard Banks

“While it’s been a very challenging season, the girls have improved greatly. We saw some progress tonight just because we haven’t been together, but once in the last 14 days—and when you don’t practice, it shows.”

Sports editor On Thursday, at King George Middle School, the showdown between students and teachers took place on the KGMS volleyball court. Specifically, the new Foxes middle school volleyball team played their final game of the winter season against seven members of the KGMS faculty, known as “Team Too Much”. While the faculty eventually defeated the founding KGMS team, the fun-filled atmosphere became a learning experience for everyone involved. Thrilled to revisit her former home gymnasium as a player, former Fox varsity standout All-District Battlefield volleyball setter and KGMS science teacher Katie Newton said, “It’s been six years since I’ve played the sport. It was a lot of fun, and I was really proud of my team, because we did pretty good for a bunch of older people. I realize the volleyball team is a new program, but they have a lot of potential.” Members of the faculty included: Allison Daughtridge, Samantha Cooke, Katie Newton, Paula Taylor, Jennifer Archambault, Kecia Wharton and Missy Dillard. After falling behind 1-0, the Foxes middle school team battled back to tie it 1-1. However, during the

—Jill Wine next two games, Team Too Much worked together to defeat the rising program. “We had a rough season, in that we missed practices because of holidays and snow days,” KGMS head coach Jill Wine said. “While it’s been a very challenging season, the girls have improved greatly. We saw some progress tonight, just because we haven’t been together but once in the last 14 days—and when you don’t practice, it shows.” Although two players were absent from the final game, the program has surpassed its initial goals. “They have a good attitude about the program, and they work well together,” Wine said. “Our goal was to have completion, passing, back-hit, and not to go over two-hit balls. We don’t celebrate our points as much as we celebrate our completions (three touches before the ball goes to the

other side). During the halftime activities, members of the audience and teams were invited to compete in a serving competition. While no one actually hit the ball inside the one of the three hula-hoop rings, KGMS eighth grader Nicole Smith’s serve landed closest to the hoops, giving her the win. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Colonial Beach Elementary School to help students with supplies. As for the future, the program will continue in the fall of 2014, with a new coach. Rising ninth graders will have an opportunity to join in off-season high school practices. Four members of the team are current members of the King George-based, Virginia Flyers travel team.

Hundreds of boys and girls participate in King George Youth Athletic Association (KGYAA) programs each season, and for every participant there exists an interesting story concerning how they came to find themselves actively engaged in KGYAA tackle football, flag football, or cheerleading. Pedro Zuniga’s story is a pretty compelling one, and his road to becoming a member of the Jr. Mustangs tackle football team last fall was a rather long one. The Texas-born son of U.S. diplomats Noel and Diana Zuniga, Pedro lived for a number of years in Panama prior to arriving in King George this past September. And although he often played rugby while living in Panama, Pedro really longed to play one of rugby’s more famous descendants - American football. So when his family re-located to King George, nine year-old Pedro found his opportunity to do just that! One weekend at Sealston Elementary School, Pedro witnessed KGYAA tackle football teams in action and was instantly “hooked” on playing. Very soon thereafter he was duly registered and assigned to Coach David Burrell’s Jr. Mustangs While late in joining the team, Pedro’s enthusiasm, obvious love of the game, and willingness to contribute immediately endeared him to coaches and teammates alike. “He was a great addition to the team,” says Coach Burrell. “He was focused and eager to learn all about American football.” Described as a “hard worker” with a “never quit attitude,” Coach Burrell believes that Pedro’s “fire and desire to be good at this sport had an effect on some of his teammates in a very positive way.” As for his parents, Noel and Diana were “extremely” proud to watch their son enjoy the sport he had wished to play for so long, were just as equally encouraged with his increased confidence and ability, and were also especially thankful for the coaches who helped Pedro develop in these areas. Diana believes that her family found Coach Burrell and his staff to be “some of the best leaders and mentors we’ve seen around a group

After a successful season, the athletic future for KGMS center, Jaylen Stepney (center) is promising.

KGMS Foxes boys basketball compete in Culpeper Classic Staff Reports Last week the King George Middle School boys basketball team finished the 2013-2014 winter sports season in a flurry as they traveled to Culpeper five times in six days, while playing in seven games. The week started at FT Binns Middle School versus an undefeated Hawks team. King George battled tough, but came out on the short end of the stick 42-35. Jaylen Stepney led all Fox scorers with 17 points, while Marcus Smith added seven points. On Tuesday King George traveled to Culpeper Middle School and defeated the Cougars, 32-26. Stepney led the Foxes with 17 points, while Cameron Schaub contributed 10 points. On Thursday King George returned to Culpeper Middle for the first round of the Culpeper Classic Basketball Tournament versus cross-town rival Walker Grant.

The Foxes defeated Walker, 43-28 and dominated the game from the opening tip, as they opening up a 34-8 lead. Stepney led the team with 21 points, while Tyler Johnson added eight points. Hunter Padgett also contributed seven points. On Friday, the Foxes traveled to Culpeper High School to take on Culpeper Middle School, and despite a double digit lead by Culpeper, the Foxes came up short, 32-26. Stepney led all Fox scoring with 13 points, while Smith added seven points. Schaub also scored four points for the Foxes. On Saturday, King George returned to Culpeper Middle School to play Caroline in the third round of the tournament. The Foxes led from the opening tipoff, and secured a 4729 victory to move on to round four of the tournament. Stepney finished the game with 21 points, while Johnson added eight points. Also, Padgett contributed six points. During round four, the Foxes

battled Walker Grant again. Despite foul trouble for Stepney and Johnson, King George held on to the lead with contributions for the entire team, and won 45-41. Stepney led all scorers with 24 points. Round five was the Foxes third game of the day and it was evident as they ran out of gas against Culpeper. KG led at the half 19-17, and closed it to 3230 with a minute left, but couldn’t pull it off, as they eventually lost, 42-36. Stepney led the way with 14 points, while Johnson added nine points. Stepney also averaged 12 rebounds a game in the tournament, and six blocks per game. King George finished third out of the top eight teams (FT Binns, Culpeper, Louisa, Walker Grant, Buford, Caroline, Prospect Heights) in the Culpeper Classic. The Foxes currently boast a record of 13-8 for the season with their final two games at Locust Grove Feb. 4, and at KGMS vs. Culpeper and Feb. 6, coming up this week.

Courtland center, Kiara Williams (center) battles for a loose ball against a gang of Fox defenders.

Courtland varsity overwhelms KG Foxes Leonard Banks Sports editor After pulling off a game-saving three-pointer from sophomore Kayla Demps with no time on the clock, to defeat King George 47-45 in December, the Courtland Cougars left no doubt during their second battle against their conference rival that they came to play. In fact, the Cougars outscored the Foxes in each of the four quarters to eventually win, 48-32. In light of the Cougars’ success over the last two seasons, there is a good reason that they are the defending Battlefield District and Regional champions. “I was very happy with my team’s intensity in the game,” Courtland girls varsity head coach Laura Gast said.  “We have missed a lot of practice due to snow and I really liked how they responded in the game and it was great to get back to playing basketball.  The girls rebounded well and stepped up their defensive pressure.”  The not-so-hidden intangible was Cougar center, Kiara Williams, who overpowered the Foxes post forwards with 14 points, and a team-high 16 rebounds. Overall, the Cougars dominated the boards with

48 rebounds. Williams’ teammate, Demps added 16 points, including three 3-pointers. As for the Foxes, Kanysha Reynolds led the team with 10 points, while Elissa Davis added seven points. Later during the week, the Foxes suffered a non-district loss to Caroline, 58-32, but bounced back to defeat Fauquier, 62-50. As for the Cougars, their success over the Foxes was short-lived, as they lost two games in row to Massaponax (49-37), and Chancellor (82-52). On Friday, the Foxes will have their hands full against conference leading Chancellor (8-0, 15-3), while the Cougars attempt to hold on to their second place seeding with an away game against Mountain View, on Wednesday. King George is currently in fourth place in the 4A North Conference 22 standings. Davis attempted to set the tone at the start of the game with a 3-pointer from beyond the arc; however, the Cougars quickly responded by establishing dominance over the post zone, courtesy of Williams. Along with scoring eight points in the quarter, Williams dictated and ruled both sides of the court with offensive and defensive rebounds. The Foxes’ opening 4-0 rally was quickly diminished, as Courtland

responded with an even exchange of scores that led to a 22-16 lead with less than a minute and a half remaining in the half. The Cougars closed out the period on the foul line, as they scored three out of five shots. At the end of two quarters, the Cougars led, 25-18. In the third quarter, with a focus on Melody Buckley, and Williams, the Cougars extended their lead to 36-22. Kyra Samuel closed out the period with a 3-pointer. During the final quarter, the Foxes utilized their press defense, as they desperately tried to battle their way back into the game. However, the Cougar defense led by Williams never let up, and the clock ticked away the Foxes’ chances for a rally.

Courtland vs. King George The first quarter can best be described as a battle of ball possession, with a focus placed on establishing execution and board dominance. Although the Cougars held the advantage in rebounds, the Foxes defense created a vacuum of turnovers that resulted in 18 exchanges and a 2-2 deadlock. Peterson carried the team on her back in the second quarter, as she scored four points, grabbed five rebounds, and dished out one assist. In spite of the Cougars rebounding advantage, the Foxes made it difficult for Courtland’s guards to move the ball up the court. However, with 21 seconds on the clock, Cougar guard, Sara D’addo scored a jumper from the corner for Courtland’s only

points of the period. Trailing 8-4, and with a limited offense, the Cougars entered the second half with the task of developing some form of scoring. In the final three and half minutes, the Cougars methodically chipped away at the Foxes six point deficit to eventually tie the game (13-13) on an assist from Alicia Jacobs to D’addo. The fourth quarter was a battle of forwards, Keily Johnson, and Peterson. With 3:27 left in the game, Johnson gave the Cougars an 18-17 lead, after scoring a 3-pointer. However, the Foxes quickly responded with Peterson dashing down the court to score on a fast break. Later, with just over a minute remaining in the game, Foxes guard, Madison Morgan sealed the game with a layup, giving King George the win (21-18).

The Foxes junior varsity girls are in sync. The last time the Cougars faced the Foxes in a junior varsity basketball matchup, at the Foxes Foxes JV Den the Cougars came up short, 35-22. Last Tuesday, in the Cougars Den, the end results were the same, Cougar JV as the Foxes behind Micala Peterson defeated Courtland, 21-18. The low scoring game featured Peterson dominating the boards at both ends of the court, while creating scoring opportunities that eventually led to a Courtland loss. The conference win has moved the Foxes closer to a potential junior varsity championship berth. Currently, the Foxes are 11-5 in the

4A Conference 22 standings. During the week they split wins with Caroline (44-29), and Fauquier (38-14).

Tech petting zoo comes to RCC Two “Technology Petting Zoos” will soon be hosted by Rappahannock Community College’s Glenns and Warsaw/Richmond County libraries. The “Petting Zoos” represent an innovative program from the Library of Virginia, which gives a variety of new technology tools to selected local libraries around the state in exchange for their help in offering demonstrations to library staff and the general public. The RCC events will be held on Friday, Feb. 7, in the Warsaw Campus lecture hall, and on Friday, Feb. 14, in the Glenns Campus lecture hall, both running from 12 noon to 1:30 p.m.; they are free and open to all who wish to attend. Electronic devices that will be presented for hands-on review by participants in “Wow . . . That’s Cool! But What Is It?” include products from Nook, Kobo, Sony, Kindle, Asus, Nexus 7, Microsoft Surface, iPad, and MacBook Pro. The

meanings of such terms as e-book, e-ink, digital rights management, sideloading, quick response codes, and the formats of ePUB, PDF, Kindle, iBook, Hypertext, and eReader will be explained, as will a number of “apps” (applications) that facilitate downloading, reading, and other tasks performed by mobile electronic devices. Attendees will gain the knowledge to make informed choices among the bewildering variety of products available in today’s market. For more information on these two events, please call Dan Ream, RCC’s coordinator of library resources, at 804-758-6716, or e-mail him at dream@rappahannock.edu. “This is a great opportunity to try out quite a few new computer tablets, e-readers and other technical gadgets, with no sales pressure to buy something,” says Ream. “If you’re confused about the differences between Kindles, Nooks, iPads and

other such gadgets, then getting to see, handle, and try them can make it easier to figure out which you like best.” Ream emphasizes that a major reason why the college is bringing this program to its campuses is to make the information available to a wider public. Local libraries in each of the six Virginia Library Association regions have been chosen to promote the “Technology Petting Zoo” program. Representing Region 3, which covers an area stretching from the North Carolina border through the Northern Neck, is Mathews Memorial Library in Mathews Courthouse. Questions about the program based at this facility, including requests for on-site demonstrations similar to the two being held at RCC, can be addressed to the library’s head of technology services, Greg Lewis (the “Tech Zookeeper”), at 804-725-5747 or greglewis@mathewslibrary.org.

Dads & Donuts at the State Capitol Richmond — On Monday, Jan. 20 Delegate Margaret Ransone sponsored “Dads and Donuts”, an event to bring fathers and children together and to promote strong families. Over 30 people attended the event, which was held in the General Assembly Building, where families from across the 99th District enjoyed meeting their state legislators and fellowship with each other. They learned about the legislative process, took tours of the Capital and participated in “Being a Delegate”, an activity where the children got to experience what a State Delegate does every day while in Richmond. Delegate Ransone said of the event “It was great to honor our dads and the important role they play in keeping our families strong.”

Local Eye Dr Helping School Children with Vision Problems A Virginia eye doctor, who saw the impact of helping underprivileged children get eye exams and glasses when he helped provide 5,000 pairs of glasses to people in Peru, will be examining children in King George County schools beginning this month and providing free glasses to those who cannot afford them. Dr. Miles Press, who has offices in the King George Walmart in Dahlgren, is a former Air Force officer who is trying to make a difference. “When people can see, they can function better, they can focus better,” said Press, who has been an eye doctor for 42 years. Dr. Press was the developer of the first tinted soft contact lens in 1980 and had his own contact lens company called CTL Inc. in Raleigh, North Carolina. I helped people with disfigured pupils function better by providing a tinted soft contact lens to cover their disfigured pupil, thereby giving the individual more self esteem and allowing them to look like a normal individual. Working with the Christian-based organization Vision With A Purpose, Dr. Press hopes to provide eyeglasses for children in need in King George, Colonial Beach and Westmoreland County in coming months. “Beginning Feb. 19, we are going to be visiting all five public schools in King George. We will screen the children and provide glasses for those who cannot afford them,” Press said. Press, a native of Pennsylvania, has been in private practice in Virginia since 1973. In addition to his offices in Dahlgren, he also has an office in Culpeper and divides his time between the two locations. The Dahlgren office is located at 16375 Merchant Lane, inside the Walmart. His efforts to provide eyewear in King George are being sponsored by the Peoples Community Bank and by Vision With A Purpose, where Press serves as a vice-president of the charitable organization. Vision With A Purpose, which has an office in Manassas, is committed to helping correct vision problems for those who cannot afford to get medical care. With the help of Dr. Press and other eye doctors across the country, Vision With A Purpose

provides free eye exams and free glasses to those in need. Press said his work is “definitely meaningful. I want to make a difference in people’s vision.” Press’ Walmart office is open Tuesday, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The office phone number is (540) 663-3937. The office specializes in hard to fit contact lenses, bi-focal contact lenses, sports-vision contact lenses, contact lenses for children, LASIK surgery co-management, cataract surgery comanagement, and specialty corneal contact lenses. Most major insurance plans are accepted. — Richard Leggitt

This past Saturday for the twelfth year I participated in the annual Saint Clement’s Island/Potomac River Museum Appraiser Fair. As always, the occasion b r o u g h t forth some remarkable pieces from collections in Southern Maryland and the Northern Neck. One of the Henry Lane best pieces was Hull this mahogany two-drawer Pembroke table with its extensive superlative marquetry inlay all over the surfaces as well as the legs. It had the original hardware, and was lacking only in the finish. Unfortunately, many years ago someone applied a crude coat of bartop varnish, but fortunately leaving the original finish beneath it. I suggested to the owner, who had

received the table as a gift, that she restore it to the original patina. A skilled refinisher should be able to do the work, thereby greatly enhancing its value. The most amazing item of the day was a small sterling silver cigarette case. Intrinsically, it was a nice piece of modest value, but the engraving on it and the three letters that accompanied it made the value incalculable. The case was a present from Dame Nellie Melba, the celebrated Australian opera singer, to the man who taught her as a child to play the pianoforte. The accompanying letters thanked him, and told him of her lifelong appreciation of the tutelage he gave the “naughty little girl.” She wrote that she wanted him to have one of two of cigarette cases she had had engraved with her signature, as well as those of a dozen other musical greats of her time, including Massenet and Paderewski. The letters were quite personal, and reflected the heart of a very

Be My Valentine

Truffles are tailor-made for Valentine’s Day indulgence Valentine's Day is known for many things. Youngsters associate the day with exchanging homemade valentines with their classmates, while couples look at the day as an annual opportunity to express their feelings for their partners, often over a nice dinner. But no Valentine's Day is complete without sweets. On Valentine's Day, healthy eating often takes a backseat to

indulging in various confections, as seemingly everyone finds a way to enjoy a special treat on Feb. 14. Those who want to experience how Parisians might indulge their sweet tooths on Valentine's Day can try the following recipe for "Truffles au Chocolat" from Sarah Woodward's "The Food of France" (Kyle Books).

Truffles au Chocolat Makes 20 to 24 truffles 1 2 1 2

cup heavy cream tablespoons super fine sugar tablespoon Cointreau or Armagnac (optional) good quality cocoa powder tablespoons unsalted butter Scant 1/2 pound dark chocolate with at least 70 percent cocoa solids

Scald the cream with the sugar by just bringing to the boil and then removing from the heat immediately. Whisk in the chocolate piece by piece until you have a smooth emulsion. Allow to cool slightly then whisk in the butter, again in pieces, followed by the alcohol if you are using it. Chill the mixture in the freezer 20 minutes. Now stir the mixture well and, using either two teaspoons if you are dexterous or your fingers if you don’t mind getting messy, fashion the truffles into small balls. Place on parchment paper or foil on a baking sheet and put in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or so. Roll well in the cocoa powder and leave in the refrigerator at least overnight before serving.

Truffles au Chocolat - a perfect Valentine treat

No sitter, no worry - celebrate Valentine’s Day with your kids and have fun! Romantic nights out on the town are how many couples celebrate Valentine's Day. Restaurants and resorts book quickly come Valentine's Day, while movie theaters tend to be packed as well. Even babysitters cash in come Feb 14, as parents look to enjoy a romantic night away from the kids. Parents who do not secure a babysitter well in advance of the holiday will have to spend Valentine's Day with kids in tow. Many parents actually prefer to spend Valentine's Day with their children, and there are plenty of family-friendly Valentine's Day activities to keep everyone occupied. Dessert spree

Valentine's Day is the one day of the year to fully engage your sweet tooth. And what child doesn't enjoy sampling plenty of sweet treats? Create a sundae station after dinner, complete with different flavors of ice cream and various toppings. Include mix-ins, like brownie bits or small chunks of pound cake. Everyone can create their own sundae, topped off with whipped cream and a cherry. This is also a time to experiment with different dessert recipes. Encourage kids to come into the kitchen and dabble in pastry arts. Bake and decorate heart-shaped cakes and cookies. Whip up healthy, pinktinged strawberry-banana smoothies. Create edible candy-and-chocolate bouquets to use as the centerpiece on

Valentine’s Day fun facts and superstitions Every Feb. 14 people around the world exchange gifts, chocolates and romantic greetings for a day set aside for lovers. Many traditions are followed, all in the name of St. Valentine. Still, people may not understand why such customs are upheld. Much of the history of Valentine’s Day and St. Valentine himself is shrouded in mystery, and much of what’s widely accepted is inaccurate. To set the record straight, here are some facts about the holiday. * Valentine’s Day is believed to have originated from a celebration in Rome during the fifth century. This celebration paid tribute to St. Valentine, a Catholic priest. Other historians surmise it was a way to “Christianize” the pagan holiday of Lupercalia, which was a fertility festival. Included in the traditions were boys and girls drawing names from a box and exchanging gifts. * The Catholic Church acknowledges at least three different saints named Valentine or Valentinus. * All of the stories surrounding St. Valentine - whether they are disputed or not - paint him as a sympathetic and heroic individual. * Valentine’s Day greetings have been popular from the Middle Ages onward, though they have been usually verbal in nature. * The oldest known written valentine still in existence today was a poem written in 1415 by Charles, Duke of Orleans, to his wife while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London following his capture at the Battle of Agincourt. * Valentine’s Day is celebrated in the United States, Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, France, and Australia. * Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day are the most popular holidays to give flowers. * According to Hallmark, women purchase 85 percent of all valentines. * According to the Greeting Card Association, an estimated one billion Valentine’s Day cards are sent each year, making Valentine’s Day the second largest card-sending holiday of the year behind Christmas. * Candy was among the earliest Valentine’s Day gifts and remains a

a dining table. The opportunities for fun with sweets are endless. Get crafty Families also can use this Valentine's Day as a chance turn off their electronic devices and have fun with crafts and hobbies. While heartshaped paper crafts are requisite for the day, that doesn't mean you need to be limited to all frilly creations. Boys can construct their own Cupid bows from twigs and some yarn. Everyone can whip up a batch of fizzing, scented bath salts. Homemade craft dough also makes for a fun project, and the dough can be turned into all different shapes, including hearts and bows.

Fancy dinner at home Who says you have to venture out for fine dining? Plan an intimate dinner right in your own dining room. Have the entire family dress up in semi-formal clothing and enjoy a candle-lit meal on fine china. The meal need not be fancy, as long as everyone enjoys what they are eating. Plan for dessert afterward. Movie night Rather than facing the crowds at area theaters, you can visit your nearest movie quick-serve kiosk or purchase a movie through your cable service provider. Find family-friendly films with love and togetherness as the center theme. Then whip up a large bowl of popcorn, snuggle under the blankets

and enjoy a movie marathon. Memory box Purchase or find a wooden, plastic or metal box that will last for several years. Have all members of the family gather their favorite items or things that are sentimental to them and place them in the box. These can be ticket stubs, photographs, jewelry, or other trinkets. Place them in the box and seal it. Agree not to open the box until next Valentine's Day to see how the family has grown and evolved. Get planting Valentine's Day is frequently accompanied by bouquets of roses and other flowers. Begin a new family

Plan a family excursion Engage in an activity that everyone enjoys together. Spend a day sledding down a wintry slope or skating at a nearby ice rink. Hike through a town park and witness the landscape during a cold-weather season. Visit a zoo, museum or aquarium and take in all the sights and sounds. Although Valentine's Day is billed as a day for couples, the entire family can still enjoy the day together.

popular gift today. * Some tales suggest that the type of bird a girl watches on Valentine’s Day predicts her future husband. A bluebird indicates a happy man, while a sparrow indicates a poor man. * In Medieval times, girls consumed unusual foods on Valentine’s Day in the belief it would make them dream of their future husbands.

Papercrafting creates something unique and worthy of saving. An art form in which paper is used to create three-dimensional objects, such as models or sculptures, papercrafting’s most widely known manifestation is origami, in which paper is folded and manipulated into various forms. Papercraft also

can be used to make pop-up cards and other elaborate creations. Papercrafting can be enjoyable and challenging and generally requires a good eye for design. But computer software programs and templates exist to make papercrafting a more viable option for those without a flare for design. One of the advantages to papercrafting is it tends to be inexpensive. All a person needs is paper, a creative idea, a cutting tool, and an adhesive. Various projects can be created to make heart sculptures, homemade paper gift boxes, cupids, cards, and three-dimensional flowers ideal for Valentine’s Day.
