Local folks brave rain, wind for fall festivals Weather puts a chill on Colonial Beach’s 3rd Bikefest

Fifty-eighth King George Fall Festival goes on despite weather Richard Leggitt

Richard Leggitt Wet, windy and chilly weather put a damper on the Third Annual Colonial Beach Bikefest last weekend. Organizers of the four-day event courageously attempted to recover Sunday when skies cleared and the sun came out, but unfortunately many bikers, visitors and vendors had departed by that time. Randy Goodyear, a vendor from Newport News, huddled under his tented booth Saturday afternoon, his merchandise covered to protect it from the rain. "This is getting old," Goodyear said. "This is the second time in three years we have had rain during this event." The culprit this year was Hurricane Matthew, which sent bands of rain and wind to Virginia from its landfall in the Carolinas.

thew made for difficult conditions for the event's parade, drenching participants and spectators. But the damp, cold conditions may have actually helped drive attendance at the fall festival's indoor activities at King George High School. Crowds were large and joyful as they visited the food and craft vendors at the high

Spotsylvania shooting fracas Plan to turn trash into tip fee treasure ends in arrest of KG resident

Local man held for shooting police dog, at officers Richard Leggitt

A King George man is being held without bond today in the Rappahannock Regional Jail after allegedly shooting at two Spotsylvania sheriff 's deputies and wounding a police dog last week. The suspect, Joseph E. Conway, 34, was arrested at an an airport motel in Richmond two days after the shootings. Conway is charged with two counts of attempted capital murder and possessing a firearm as a felon. Spotsylvania Sheriff 's Capt. Jeff Pearce said more charges are pending.

The shootings occurred Oct. 4 near a Sheetz on Lafayette Boulevard in Spotsylvania after officers stopped a car for a minor traffic infraction. The driver of the vehicle was taken into custody after it was learned he was wanted by Fredericksburg authorities. While the driver was being arrested, a passenger in the vehicle whom officers identified as Conway, got into an argument with officers at the scene and then began fleeing. A police dog named Dux, a 2-year-old German shepherd, began pursuit of the suspect but was allegedly shot by the fleeing fugitive. Officers allege that Conway also opened fire on them. None of the officers were shot, but they returned fire and chased the suspect. According

to officers, the suspect escaped. When he was arrested two days later after a massive manhunt, Conway reportedly had a leg wound as a result of his exchange of fire with the Spotsylvania officers. The wounded police dog, Dux, was rushed by officers to an emergency animal clinic where he received surgery. The dog is expected to make a full recovery and was being hailed as a hero by Spotsylvania officers who were on the scene of the shooting. "Dux should be commended for his heroic actions during his attempt to capture a fleeing suspect," said Spotsylvania Maj. Troy Skebo. "The outpouring of community support for Dux and for our officers has been overwhelming and is very much appreciated."

Dahlgren, Shiloh set to get new fire stations Supervisors OK funding Phyllis Cook King George is slated to get two new fire stations in the next few years, with the King George Board of Supervisors approving $547,340 for a professional services agreement with LeMay Erickson Wilcox Architects PC on Sept. 20. The agreement is to provide prede-

sign, programming and conceptual design phases of the project which includes two fire houses. County administrator Travis Quesenberry was asked when he expected the design to be completed and construction to begin. “I do not have a timeline for construction,” Quesenberry said. “We have not executed the agreement yet. They are reviewing our standard professional services agreement. We will only be issuing a notice to proceed

for the programming and conceptual design phases. The timeline will be set out in the final agreement based on an agreed-upon date for the notice to proceed.” The scope of work will not include the bid phase or construction phases, with the fees for those services to be negotiated prior to bidding the projects. That’s because the site selection and acquisition for both fire stations have not been formally finalized.

One fire house, new Company 2, will be sited in Dahlgren and is planned to replace existing Company 2 on Dahlgren Road. The board has met in closed session several times in the last year to discuss acquisition of property, but no announcement has been made. Under the Virginia Freedom of Information Act, public bodies are allowed to close meetings to discuss property acquisiSee Fire, page 2

King George Parks & Rec chief Tim Smith asked residents for input on what programs they would like.

King George Supervisors John Jenkins and Chairwoman Ruby Brabo held a Dahlgren town hall meeting on Oct. 3, drawing about 25 people. “So much is happening since the first of the year,” Brabo said. She recapped some actions by the board, including a new website to be developed, changes expected to allow beekeeping in residential areas and planners to work up

architectural standards for commercial properties. The county is also looking into creating mixed use areas within the courthouse district, with both commercial and residential uses. “And the Economic Development Authority is working on a complete streets project to revitalize the courthouse area of the county.” She also cited plans for new water lines and sewer extensions. “The county is cash funding the water/sewer line extension to the Routes 3/301 intersection and will be decommissioning of the Purkins Corner wastewater treatment plant and rerouting it to Hopyard,” Brabo said.

The King George landfill could go 100 feet higher if a proposed amendment gets approved.

King George close to landfill amendment to allow it to go 100 feet higher Phyllis Cook King George County Landfill Manager David R. Howard announced the county could have approval for a major landfill permit amendment by Thanksgiving. The amendment would allow increasing the height of the landfill by 100 feet, estimated to bring in over $100 million in additional host tipping fees during an extended 15 years of trash disposal. That would be expected to start in about 15 years from now, with higher tipping fees to the county. But sooner than that, within six months of regulatory approval by the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality, Waste Management would begin paying the county an additional $3 million, in increments of $500,000 annually over the next six years. “I have great news regarding the

vertical expansion. As of tomorrow, we will be in The Journal with our public notice that starts our 30 day public notice process,” Howard said. He is also Senior District Manager for Waste Management Inc. “After that, the Department of Environmental Quality has 14 days to respond to residents’ issues or anything that comes up at that public hearing itself. We’re getting very close to buttoning up this project. And it will be really, really close, but we may have the permit before Thanksgiving.” The announcement was made at the Oct. 4 meeting of the King George County Board of Supervisors. A public hearing on the matter will take place 7 p.m. Nov. 9 at the King George High School auditorium, located on the north side of Route 3 (Kings Highway) east of Dahlgren Road (Route 206), 10100 Foxes Way.

Festival: Parade, fair go on From page 1

school and booths for local the Democratic and Republican parties were doing a brisk business in campaign signs for the upcoming election. Grand Marshal of the Fall Festival Parade was builder Tommy Burrell, who has been a key organizer of the fall festival for many years. Burrell is one of the founding members of the King George Builder's Association, one of the fall festival sponsors. "It was surprising the number of people who for came out despite the rain," Burrell said. "It was pouring down rain and people still came out." Burrell said he was riding in the parade with his wife, children and grandchildren and didn't get too wet despite the weather. "We got a little bit wet, but I had a canvas on my trailer to help keep us dry. It was still fun," Burrell said.

"And, people came out for the parade despite the weather. They brought umbrella and tents. It was amazing." Burrell said he felt honored to be the parade's grand marshal. "It means a whole lot.People kept coming up to me to shake my hand. I was honored. It's a honor to represent King George County." "A little more than half of the parade participants didn't show because of the weather," said Fall Festival President/Chairwoman Wendi Dennison Wynn. "But we still had a parade that lasted over an hour." "I was happy that so many diehards came out even with the weather," Wynn said. "I saw lots of posts on Facebook of people who came out despite the rain. It was all part of a very, very successful event." Wynn said the weather actually benefitted the indoor events. "I would say that we had many, many more inside than we normally have. A lot of vendors ran out of merchandise. I was impressed with all of the children's activities."

er sponsors for all of their help.” According to the festival committee, there were 1,287 visitors to inside activities at the festival. There were 90 plus vendors, crafters and information booths. The committee thanked others who contributed to the success of the festival. Dee Strauss and her DECA students from KGHS were on hand from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. on shifts, to help the crafters/vendors unload and then load their vehicles D&R Talent Management under the leadership of Delaine & Rodney Richards provided manpower (and girl power) to coordinate and manage the parking lot and keeping the fire lanes open. The committee thanked the following: Beckey Gallamore & Allyson Norris for their hard work with the FF Queens pageants. Don't forget Bingo at the end of the month! The Dahlgren Lions, Optimists

& Ruritans were inside selling food items and cold drinks/water. KG Parks & Rec for their manpower and the activities for all the kids. The KG Sheriff 's office provided road control and traffic management. KG Dept of Emergency Services provided vehicles for the parade, and support at the Fair. King George County Schools provided the facilities and King George County provided support. Smoot Library opened early for the KGFF Hospitality Room & meeting spot for parade dignitaries. Without the work of the entire Community, the event would not have been such a success. Even with all the rain! Big shout out to the businesses along Route 3 who close for the day to give access to the parade and the parade watchers. Without the volunteers of the FF Committee, none of this would be even possible.

Wynn said she began coming to the fall festival when her mother and father were active in the event.Her father was a past fall festival chairman in 1969. "It is just a traditional things to do in King George County," Wynn said.

"It is a family event and something that I am proud to be a part of," Wynn said. "I want to thank the fall festival committee, King George County and the Parks and Recreation Department as well as the King George Builders Association and all our oth-

was lined with several dozen vendors when the Bikefest kicked off Thursday, was completely deserted. The vendor booths were covered and mostly closed and at least one vendor tent blew down the beach past the town's municipal pier. Things improved rapidly Sunday, but the smaller crowds viewing the demo fleet of Harley-Davidson motorcycles and the performances of The Stepping Stones and The Outlaws

still had to contend with mud and standing pools of water despite the sunshine. "Sunday was a good day," said Carey Geddes, president of the Colonial Beach Chamber of Commerce, which was the primary sponsor of the event. "Thursday and Friday weren't bad. It was Saturday that was the killer." "It was billed as rain or shine," Geddes said. "When you have an event outside. You are sometimes going to

get some weather problems. Apparently the hurricane didn't turn like we were told it would, but what can you do?" Geddes pushed back against the suggestion by some that after rainy weather at two of the first three events, organizers ought to consider moving the Bikefest to September. "Who is to say that you wouldn't get rain in September?" "The reason we do it this weekend

in October is so we can take advantage of the long holiday weekend created by Columbus Day," Geddes said. "Generally visitors come to the beach from Memorial Day to Labor Day. We are trying to extend the season six weeks past Labor Day and provide opportunities for our businesses." "All in all, it was a good weekend," Geddes said. "All of the bands played. Sunday things picked up and business was busy. The weather was a problem

on Saturday, and crowds were down somewhat, but we dealt with it." "I would like to thank all of the bike enthusiasts for attending the Third Annual Colonial Beach Bikefest," Geddes said. "All those involved enjoyed putting this event together." In addition to the Chamber of Commerce, major event sponsors were the Miller Brewing Company, Bayside Auto Group, All-American HarleyDavidson and High Tides Restaurant.

don’t want it to go on Dahlgren Road,” Moody said. Dahlgren Road is two-lane and difficult to get to, particularly during rush hours due to traffic in and out of the Dahlgren Navy base and nearby contractors. He was asked where the station might go. “I can only speak generally,” Moody said. “One place we’re looking is around the Windsor Drive (Route 218) area.” He said they would prefer it not be right on U.S. 301 (James Madison Parkway), but would like access to the

four-lane divided roadway. The other new fire house, proposed Company 4, has been publicly discussed to go on property owned by the county on the east side of US 301 (James Madison Parkway) about a half mile south of the intersection with Route 3 (Kings Highway). The 48.24 acre property is the site of the county’s vehicle maintenance facility, which is used by the school division. The property contains several parcels with about half of the site cleared and the rest wooded.

Quesenberry last week confirmed the planned location to The Journal. “Company 4 will be constructed on the county-owned property adjacent to the vehicle maintenance facility,” Quesenberry said. Decisions have yet to be made on when construction might take place and which station would be built first. “There have been no funds appropriated by the board for construction,” Quesenberry said. “The board will first have to have funding in place before we can bid one

or both stations. I do not know which station the board will want to construct first.” The current five-year capital improvement program for the county estimates potential funding for the two new fire stations in future years. The program is aspirational, with projects in out-years often shifted. The program currently estimates the construction funding would come to about $7.865 million for the two fire stations over the next three fiscal years, beginning with $1.5 million in 2017-

18, which begins July 1. The cost estimates are expected to be updated when the design is complete. The county is asking for the design and footprint for the two stations to be identical with each having 10,000 to 15,000 square feet. They are to support 24/7 operations and be mission-oriented, operationally-efficient and cost-effective facilities with sufficient space for present and future needs and also provide a model for future county fire/rescue stations.

rent to improperly register one's vehicle and will assist in enforcement of the applicable laws and regulations,” Jenkins said. Parks & Recreation Director Tim Smith talked about a community survey to be kicked off at the end of October with a public forum followed by two or three additional meetings for residents to attend and voice their views on existing facilities and programs and what they want in the future. “This is where you get involved. We need people to provide feedback and

respond to the survey,” Smith said. “We’ll have hard copies of the survey at the meetings and it will be posted online.” Dates for the public meetings have not yet been scheduled. Service Authority Board citizenmember Chris Werle and General Manager Chris Thomas gave an overview of the authority. Werle talked about the recent budget process, saying he compared numbers with the previous year’s actual amounts. “I asked about every line item in de-

tail and was only able to scrub about $800.00 from the $5.5 million budget,” Werle said. “Believe me when I say there is no fat in that budget and it’s bare bones.” Thomas provided tips to conserve water and save money on their water bills. Those include: irrigate wisely, watch for leaks and repair immediately, only wash full loads of laundry and dishes, reuse towels and drinking glasses, turn off the tap while brushing teeth and shaving, reduce shower times, don’t

spray sidewalks and driveways, and install rain barrels for watering plants and yard use. “If you wash your car — and I don’t — wash it on your lawn or use a local car wash. They all have recycle pumps for the water,” Thomas said.

King George Fire and Rescue Chief David Moody provided an overview of the department and talked about plans for two new fire stations for Dahlgren and Shiloh that will reduce response times particularly for emergencies in the eastern section of the county.

proved the amendment on July 15, 2014, after reviewing and researching the concept, including visiting a tall landfill in Sussex. The Sussex County Landfill is 300 feet high and permitted to go to 510 feet. In 15 years when the current remaining airspace at the landfill is exhausted and the contractor commences disposal in the new vertical expansion area, a higher host tipping fee would go into effect, from the current $5 per ton, to $6 per ton. The current annual revenue is about $6.24 million, not counting gas payments of about $200,000. Landfill revenue is used for payments on debt incurred by construc-

tion of capital projects including new schools, renovations to older schools, the sheriff ’s office building and an expansion of the Smoot Library. Smaller capital projects are also annually funded from the money. Supervisor Cedell Brooks Jr. was chairman of the board when the landfill contract was initially approved by the Board of Supervisors in August 1993. It was a raucous time with lots of resident opposition, including a lawsuit, which the county won. During the expansion discussion and research starting in January 2013, there had been no public op-

position voiced. “Nobody has said anything about it,” Brooks said. “The landfill has been a good neighbor thus far and to expand it upwards will give the county more revenue on into the future. I think it’s a positive thing for the county.” Operations of the landfill began in November 1996, following permitting by DEQ and construction of its first cells.

Republicans from Idaho to Virginia had enough of Trump This column starts in Idaho and ends in Virginia. That’s normally a nice trip. However, this journey, as so many things have been this year, is marred Donald David S. Kerr by Trump. And it concerns some Republicans, all good people, who would have normally supported their GOP nominee, but, this year, felt they couldn’t. Let’s start in Idaho. It’s a beautiful state. It’s a place with mountains open ranges, cowboys and horses. Its people are straightforward and friendly. That’s certainly the case with their senior Senator Mike Crapo. Several years ago I worked for him. He was a great boss. He is honest, highly intelligent, incredibly hard working, very conservative, and idealistic in a way that’s not often seen in

Washington these days. He’s also a staunch Republican. He supports the ticket through thick and thin. That is, until this year. He said he simply couldn’t support Donald Trump. That was a startling statement. True, the Donald was never Mike’s kind of candidate, but Mike was with him right up until the lewd tapes from Access Hollywood and the Howard Stern interviews came out. That seems to be what forced the Senator to take such a strong stand. It was just too much. Now, for those who might say, this western Senator is renouncing Trump to save his own hide during this election, that’s not the case. Senator Crapo is an institution in Idaho. His Democratic opponent in this election is going to have a tough time getting above 30 percent. Mike has no effective opposition. A much easier political course would have been to stick with Donald Trump. But, being Senator Crapo, taking the easy course isn’t the way he was brought

Letters to the editor Who we really are “That’s not who we are” is a favorite phrase of President Obama. This and its variations have been used by him in speeches 46 times according to the internet. But really, who are we in this unfortunate age of identity politics and micro aggressions? The bill of rights and the rule of law could be the last uniquely American markers which define us. Before the rule of law, royalty toured their kingdoms holding court. They dispensed justice without legislation. The President now dispenses justice in local matters without regard to law. “The police acted stupidly”, “That could be my son lying there” come to mind. And at the national level the $20 billion shakedown of BP and altering Obamacare 76 times are good examples. So much for the rule of law, we have come full circle. Unfortunately, the second amendment is the only amendment left in the Bill of Rights which means what it says. The second amendment does not grant gun rights to Americans. Free men assumed that right with the defeat of the monarchy. The second amendment tells the federal government they cannot limit this right. This amendment is not about squirrel hunting. The founding fathers did not want a standing army, nor the prohibition of arms for the populous. This is clear in reading the debates on the second amendment as it was being written. To quote Mr. Gerry on 17 August 1789, “This declaration of rights, I take it, is intended to secure the people against the mal-administration of the Government”. Yes, hunting and self-defense were important considerations, but the power to depose a tyrant was the goal. After all, Sic Semper Tyrannis is on the state seal of Virginia. It was more than a bumper sticker for those

guys. Mr. Trump recently came under attack when he mentioned the second amendment in its original context. In addition to who we are, it’s now a matter of where we are. And we are about to lose the last and most important piece of the Constitution. . Be suspicious of those who want to alter this totally American gift from our Founding Fathers. Be afraid of a government which wants to weaken its people. Rodger Meredith, Callao Sodom Had No Churches Archeologists have found the ruins of Sodom and Gomorrah. The location was southeast of the Dead Sea which is in Jordan near the border of Israel. Incredibly the excavations reveal that the life in the city came to an abrupt end. Sulfur was found throughout the site where the ruins were found. In Genesis 19:24, “Then the Lord rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah.” Why would God do such a thing? The Bible says the sins of Sodom and Gomorrah had become grievous to him. Before the destruction God was still mercifully willing to spare the cities if he could find just 10 righteous people, but he could not. Lot and his family lived in Sodom. One day two travelers came to Lot’s house. He took them in and fed them. Genesis 19:5-7 “Then all the men of the city surrounded Lot’s house and said, ‘Where are the men that came to you tonight. Bring them out to us so that we may have sex with them.’ Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him and said, ‘Don’t do this wicked thing I pray you brethren.’” In the book of Ezekiel 16:49-50, “Now this was the sins of your sister Sodom. She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned, they did not help the poor or needy, they

up. Mike is a moral man. He is a Mormon, takes his family values seriously, and just couldn’t stand the thought of a man like Trump assuming the mantel of the Presidency. Now, let’s take that flight back to Virginia. Green, lush, hilly Virginia. The home of Washington, Jefferson, Madison and Monroe. Virginia is another place where Donald Trump has caused some serious angst with his onetime supporters. Tenth District Republican Rep. Barbara Comstock, a staunch conservative, who won her last election by 15 points, has said “enough” when it comes to Donald Trump. She just won’t support him. She also said she wouldn’t support the Democrat. It’s a strong statement coming from one of Virginia’s rising political stars. Her district, formerly held by Republican Frank Wolf, while notionally competitive is nonetheless Republican. She could have easily

ridden to reelection without renouncing Donald Trump. But, like a lot of women, mothers in particular, Mr. Trump’s tapes and utterings were just too much. This may complicate her rise to higher office. She would make a good Senate candidate if there were a special election in 2017. But, I guess the price of that possibility wasn’t worth her political soul. It’s nice to know that there are still some people like that around. Then there is our esteemed Senator John Warner. He’s bucked the Republican Party before. However, that’s only been in state elections. When it comes national races, from Nixon to Romney, he’s stuck with his party’s national choice. But, not this year. It would be easy for the former Senator to sit this one out. He’s retired and enjoys his elder statesman role. He is, by the way, a veteran of World War II and Korea, and served both in the Navy and the Marines. When he left Congress he was Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Com-

were haughty, proud and did detestable, disgusting things before me. I did away with then as you have seen.” Something to think about: as Leonard Ravenhill said, Sodom had no preachers, America has thousands; Sodom had no Bibles, America has millions; Sodom had no churches, America has thousands plus thousands; Sodom had no Bible schools, America has hundreds; Sodom had no warnings of God’s judgment that would come to a people that refused to turn away from their sins, America has volumes telling how and why God judges a nation. In the New Testament, 2 Peter 2:6-7, “And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes condemned them to destruction making them an example to those who afterwards would live ungodly and delivered righteous Lot (two daughters) who was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked.” Could it be that the sins of America have become so great, especially when we consider the killing of over 55 million innocent babies, that it makes Sodom and Gomorrah seem righteous? God has said, “I hate the shedding of innocent blood.” The reason America has not been taken away is because of God’s mercy, mercy and prolonged mercy and His everlasting love. God continues to cry out in love, “repent of your sins and turn from your wicked ways and I will forgive your sins and heal your land.” The only hope for America and even the church of Jesus Christ is that God would send a Holy Spirit revival. That revival would turn our hearts to the cross of Jesus Christ where his blood was shed for the forgiveness of all our sins. Is anyone listening? Does anyone care? Do we believe God’s word? Because of Jesus’ great love he will hear the cries of his children. Dale Taylor, King George

Support KGMS color run This October 2016, King George Middle School will be hosting the second annual My School Color Run fundraising event. The My School Color Run program aims to go beyond traditional fundraising. This program seeks to engage the entire student body, no matter what level of fitness or capability, in an initiative that promotes a lifelong healthy way of living. We’re extremely excited about launching our second My School Color Run at our school! We’re looking forward to involving our entire student body, faculty, and the community in this fun and healthy program. Before the event, our students will seek individual pledges from family and friends to meet their personal fundraising goals. In addition, we are requesting local businesses to consider being event sponsors. This is a great opportunity to make a difference for students in our community as our school’s PTA keeps 100% of the funds raised through donations, pledges, and sponsors. I have included our business sponsor form with this letter. If your business is interested, please complete the form and return it to me by 9/30. IF you have any ideas or requests not included on the form, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly to discuss! Lastly, the final color celebration run will be open to the public.

mittee. And that’s just part of his career. This year John Warner (no relation to Mark) told a press conference that he wasn’t supporting the Republican nominee either. Warner has always had a special focus, not surprisingly, on national security, and he was shocked by Trump’s comments about the military. Trump has repeatedly claimed that our military is a “disaster.” That was too much for the retired five term Senator. Taking his denouncement of Trump a bit further than others have, he says he is going to vote for Secretary Clinton. Clinton served with Senator

Warner on the Armed Services Committee and Warner had high praise for her performance. Each of these three people are prominent in their party. One from the western landscapes of Idaho and the other two from Virginia. But, each of them have a reputation for honesty and always putting their country first. There are those who have harsh words for them. Some Republicans will never forgive them. For any tough stand there is usually a price to be paid. But, at least these three can look at themselves in the mirror and smile knowing that they did what they felt was right.

Register to vote by Oct. 17; absentee voting taking place now Phyllis Cook

Absentee voting is taking place in Virginia for the presidential and congressional elections on Nov. 8, along with two proposed constitutional amendments. Voters may go into the registrar’s office, fill out an absentee application and then vote on the spot, checking the box for any one of numerous reasons providing eligibility to vote absentee. King George General Registrar Lorrie Gump said last week, eight days into absentee voting, 57 voters had so far cast ballots. But most people are not even


aware absentee voting has begun. Absentee voting is an effective choice for those who expect to be out of the county on Election Day for any reason, whether voters may have an appointment or errand in Fredericksburg on Nov. 8, commute to a job or do not expect to be able to get away from work in time. There are numerous other legitimate reasons providing eligibility to cast a ballot ahead of time. Once a ballot is cast through absentee voting, voters don’t need to worry about unexpected problems with car trouble, schedule conflicts or illness intervening on Nov. 8. In addition, absentee voting will

Know your food sources to find deer this season Mark Fike

The deer season has begun with archery opening up two Saturdays ago. Hunters who have been successful veterans of bringing home the venison know that the key to finding deer is doing some scouting every year. It is true that deer tend to be creatures of habit. This means that on a certain parcel of land, the deer tend to move from one area to another via a certain draw, ridge or path year after year. They may retain the same basic bedding areas year after year, barring any significant changes to the landscape or undue pressure by humans. However, each season brings a new food source. In the fall those food sources tend to change more than the other times of year. During the spring, deer will feed on emergent greenery, buds, flowers and early fruit. During the summer browse, crops, berries and fruit make up the menu. In the winter, they scrounge for any remains and nip off young sapling tips, and remaining green grass. However, during the fall if there is no grain or crop field nearby, they will focus on acorns and fallen fruit. Standing corn crops, oats, turnips, clover, wheat and other grains and crops are sure bets, but they will be harvested soon. Acorns are next

on the list or maybe at the same tier as crops. Some years the acorn crop is really good, some years it is spotty and other years it is a failure. The past few years the mast production (acorn crop) has been on the lousy side for most of our hunting spots. However, this year the locale is seeing moderate acorn production with certain trees producing well and others mere yards away not producing. With this in mind, hunters should really make a point to go see which trees are producing acorns. Don’t simply go hang a stand and climb up a tree in the dark in an oak lot because you have taken deer in that area before. This might be the year that those trees are not producing. It is a total waste of time to go hunt an oak stand that is not producing if you really expect to take a deer. Another consideration for hunters is to find the best producing oak tree on the property you are hunting and put up a trail camera to determine the activity around the site. I would recommend doing this during times you are already sneaking in to hunt if you have not already put up a trail camera. Don’t make a special trip and stir up the area more than you already do when hunting. Next, start hunting areas where the best white oak acorns are dropping. It is important that you keep

tabs on when the acorns are dropping and how many are still available on the ground. These acorns are said to have less tannin in them and are supposedly “sweeter.” They rot faster though (if they are not eaten). White oak relatives include white oaks, post oaks, chestnut oaks, swamp oaks and chinkapin oaks to name a few. The acorns in the white oak family mature in approximately 6 months. Red oak acorns mature in 18 months. This means there could be two different sizes/ages of acorns on the same tree. This family includes the northern and southern red oak, pin oak, and willow oak among others. The tannin levels in these acorns is higher, making the acorns bitterer. However, the acorns will be eaten by deer, albeit, when the better ones are gone. The red oak acorns will last much longer offering deer a food source during the late winter months. With this knowledge, I would hang stands in the proximity of white oak acorn trees that are producing and dropping acorns, particularly earlier in the season, and once those acorns are gone I would move my stand to red oak acorns crop areas. Get to know your deer food sources and watch your success rate go up when bringing venison home is the task at hand.

Outdoor report Mark and Missy Fike Fishing reports were very slow this past week due to the tremendous amount of rain we got recently. However, some waters were producing well. Rappahannock River Catfishing is starting to pick up during the day now, but the action is still somewhat slow. The bass action is fair from the scat-

tered reports we have gotten. Look for crappie fishing to pick up soon. Also, smallmouth fishing will pick up above Fredericksburg toward the middle end of the month. Try creature baits upriver. Potomac River Ken’s Tackle in Spotsylvania reported some huge catfish in the 50-60 pound range caught near Fairview Beach. These are blue catfish. Cut shad and herring are the baits of

choice for these brutes. White perch action is still available but will taper off by November. Inland Motts Run reported some very nice bream fishing off the piers with red wigglers and nightcrawlers. They also reported that there were some really nice bass up to 4 pounds being caught. Lake Anna is giving up striper but primar-

ily in the evening. Bass fishing has been better in the evening from our reports too. Saltwater Saltwater action reports include some keeper striper showing up around the CBBT and points south. Some red drum are still around and a few flounder. Small bluefish are biting in the bay and points south too. Upcoming seasons: Archery deer Oct 1-Nov 18

W&L defeats rival Lancaster 41-40 in Friday shootout Richard Leggitt

The young Washington and Lee Eagles had their most impressive win of the season Friday night in Montross, defeating rival Lancaster 41-40. Senior quarterback Carson Bell keyed the win with 167 yards passing for two touchdowns. Bell also had a rushing touchdown in the third quarter.Freshman Markeith Rich had two rushing touchdowns. And Bell had the game winning score with a 24-yard strike to receiver J.J. McNeil late in the fourth period. "I am mostly proud about how the guys stuck together throughout the entire game," said W&L Coach Josh Wild. "At any one point we could have found a reason to point fingers, but the guys handled the adversity thrown at them very well." "We were able to find our rhythm offensively very early in the game and that allowed us to play with confidence throughout the game," Wild said. "Defensively, the guys had a tall order to be prepared to defend the option this week " Wild said. "With only three days of practice they were able to get the job done. We must become better tacklers at the point of contact moving forward." "On any given night, against comparable district teams we are capable of scoring points," said W&L Athletic Director Malcolm Lewis. "Our defense is still a work in progress. We just have to get tougher on defense." Washington & Lee plays at Nor-

Senior star Jordan Aley pounded Spotsylvania for 236 yards and three touchdowns Friday, and the increasingly stout King George defense held the Knights to nine passing yards as the Foxes posted their fifth win of the season. Aley gained his yardage on only 10 carries, posting touchdown runs of 42, 18 and 48 yards. In total, King George posted 399 yards on the

Also scoring for the Foxes were sophomore wingback Cameron Schaub on a 33-yard run and defensive back Cody Enddicott, who had seven tackles, on a 37-yard interception return for a score in the fourth quarter.

the Foxes held the Knights to just over 50 yards rushing for the evening. "We wanted to preserve a shutout," said King George Coach Jeff Smith. "But they busted a big play in the fourth quarter. But is was a great team win." "If I had to give credit it would be to the whole team," said Smith. "We had a great many weapons and players who contributed to the win. It was a total team victory. Everybody's starting to click." Smith said he was especially proud of his defense. "A lot of the time we had eight or nine players going to the football. It was another outstanding effort by our whole defense." "It is going to take everybody playing together to get where we want to be " Smith said. "And, we want to continue playing that way." The Foxes, who are 5-1 will play their second conference game on the season at home against Caroline at 7 p.m. Playoffs are slated to begin the second week in November.

Paced by Eddie Jims and Ethan McNamara, the Washington & Lee High School boys cross country team placed first in a five-team Northern Neck District meet at Montross last week. The strong W&L girls cross country team finished second in the girls meet on the running of Jenifer Broglin and Claire Whitman, "This victory may be the most satisfying one of my career," said W&L boys coach Cole Vanover. "The boys team collected their seventh consecutive Northern Neck District championship. It's really hard to believe." "And going into it, we were the underdogs," Vanover said. "We haven't run well collectively all year. At this meet though the guys really stepped up. They didn't want to be on the wrong side of history. Everyone did their job. Everyone ran personal records." "Eddie Jims ran a great race finishing second overall," Vanover said. "Ethan MacNamara, Neil Patel, Jorge Barajas and David Siddeley all stepped up and did a great job of running in a pack." "One thing that really helped us was our number six and seven runners yesterday, Dayton Combs and Devontay Williams," Vanover said. "Those two were able to get in front of Lancaster's number four and five runners, which really put us in a good position after Lancaster took

W&L girls coach Cindy Flickinger was equally pleased with the competitiveness of her team. "I could not have been prouder of the girls.They all ran their best race of the season," Flickinger said. "I couldn't have asked for more." "Second place is always a tough pill to swallow especially by only five points, but certainly acceptable in this case," Flickinger said. "Jenifer Broglin ran her best this season so far. Senior Claire Whitman had

her personal best ever as did sophomore Whitney Wade, who is a first year runner. I am hoping that their times get even faster so we can be competitive in conference 33 and 2A region when that time comes." For the boys, Mims had a cross country time of 18:56 in the competition against teams from Essex, Lancaster, Northumberland and Rappahannock. McNamara had a time of 20:08. For the girls, Broglin had a time of 20:00 and Whitman ran the course in 22:09.

Drifters turn 20 first quarter points into a 39-0 victory over Rappahannock Richard Leggitt

Coach Jeremy Jack's small but talented Colonial Beach varsity football team rolled to its biggest win of the season Thursday, defeating the Rappahannock Raiders at Colonial Beach 39-0. "I was very pleased with our effort and results in last night's game, not because we won necessarily but due to the fact that we finally reduced our penalties and penalty yards and several players made major contributions to the effort," Jack said. "That is what will make the difference is having multiple players being able to step up at any time in any game and make a play," Jack said. "That is the difference between a good team and a championship team. We need to continue building on the foundation of the upperclassmen and keep having our underclassmen develop their

confidence." Colonial Beach rolled up 303 yards on the ground and 144 in the air as the Drifters kept pressure on Rappahannock all evening. In the first quarter the Drifters took a 20-0 lead behind the scoring runs of senior running back Lamar Lucas, junior running back Anajai Lewis and a 70-yard run by senior quarterback Alonzo Turner. In the second quarter, Turner passed receiver Cole Setliff for a 74-yard score, and in the third Turner hit Kendrick Smith for a 72-yard touchdown. Junior running back Tyshawn Davis had a 37-yard run for a touchdown to close the scoring. Colonial Beach's defense swarmed the Raiders all game, holding them to six first downs and 36 yards in total offense for the night. The Drifters will be on the road for the next two weeks, playing at always tough Essex Friday and then at Northumberland on Oct. 21.

King George volleyball scores two wins Richard Leggitt Coach Jill Wine's competitive King George volleyball team scored two wins last week, defeating James Monroe and Spotsylvania. The Foxes were scheduled to play tough conference foe Chancellor this week. King George beat James Monroe last week, 25-9, 25-15, 25-9. Madi Koban had 12 kills; Andi Wine had 9 kills and 6 digs; Kristina Zuniga had 18 assists and 5 aces; Katie Bentz had 11 assists and 6 aces. Hannah Koepfinger led on defense with 13 digs. Then later in the week, the Foxes beat Spotsylvania in three sets: 25-19, 25-17, 25-9. Koban had 9 kills and 6

digs. Wine had 9 kills, 10 digs, and 6 aces; Elimma Agoulu had 8 kills; Zuniga had 16 assists and 3 aces; Bentz had 15 assists and 6 digs. Leading the defense was Jonnae Usher with 3 blocks and Hannah Koepfinger with 6 digs. "We played very well against Spotsylvania," said Wine. "Our players served aggressively, passed well so that our setters had three options and our hitters found holes on the other side of the net to place their kills, reaching our team goal of over .250 hitting percentage." "We needed the win against James Monroe," Wine said. "But Courtland and Chancellor are going to be our

most competitive teams in our conference. We have already lost twice to Courtland and haven't competed against Chancellor this season due to a postponed match." "Our team needs to stay motivated and physically strong to be able to compete and win against Chancellor," Wine said. "Chancellor keeps improving their record as their season continues." The Foxes, who now have a record of 8-10 for the season and 4-2 in conference play, were scheduled to play Chancellor this week, then twice more including the conference tournament. Playoffs for the Foxes will begin late this month or early in November.

W&L Hall of Fame announces inductees At halftime of the 7 p.m. Washington and Lee Eagles against Rappahannock Raiders game on Oct. 21, the W&L Hall of Fame will induct 11 more people into the hall.

’99 – Football, Baseball; Contributors - The King Family – Larry “Popeye” King, Barbara King, and Patricia (King) Lewis. These 11 Eagles join last year’s class of 17 as the first two waves of W&L Hall of Famers. “The first two classes we expected to be large, said W&L Athletic Director Malcolm Lewis. “The future classes will naturally reduce in size, but we hope the existence of this special institution will be a benchmark for young people to work to achieve. It is not just perfor-

mance based, but has a citizenship criteria built in. You have to be a great performer . . . but you also have to have a record of solid citizenship in society.” Last year’s honorees were Charles Pierce, Randall Thompson, Jeff White, Liz “Chandler” Beckham, Ronald “Tex” Jones, Kenneth Mitchell, Albert Haskins, Michael Clark, Joe Taylor, Arthur Jones, Billy Walker, Les Sisson, Jeff Hutt, Wayne Lewis, Wayne White, Larry Green and Ferdy Fax Chandler.
