It has long been considered “off limits” for a president to overtly attempt to influence the Supreme Court during its period of deliberation on a case, in this particular case it is ObamaCare, but apparently that’s not the way it’s done in Chicago. Under the presidency of Barack Obama, our nation’s presidential protocols and system of checks and balances are being systematically dismantled. We have been forced into a constitutional crisis of the first order by this President! Stephen Lee Mechanicsville, VA 23116

Dear Editor, I certainly hope that you will print this letter so that the Citizens of this county will see how unfair the tax assessments are in this county. Back in 2007 when most of us were not aware of items being considered by the Board of Supervisors (BOS) (due to a lack of publication of Board agendas) our current Board of Supervisor Members decided to provide extreme tax breaks for anyone who owned 5 acres or more of land. They created four additional classifications called, Agricultural - $750 per acre, Horticultural - $750 per acre, Forest - $500 per acre, Non-productive Forest $250 per acre. The most an acre of land would be assessed in any of these classifications is $750.00 beginning in 2008.

tion that does not understand the meaning of or practice ”reduction of expenses”. So let’s just raise the $750.00 rate to $3,000 per acre for all of these five classifications. That would raise the assessed value of the owner of 500 acres to $1,500,000. This would more than offset the loss of $322,000 in assessed value from a retired person with waterfront land in this fifth category, but would be less than what residential property would be assessed. This would still be giving a break to Agricultural, Horticultural, Forest and Non-productive Forest property owners of more than 5 acres. Let me give you an example of an existing situation. A property owner has three water front lots and then two additional lots, immediately behind the three lots, separated from the front three by a road easement. If these five lots were not in land use, the taxes would be $6,091 per year. However, since they are in land use the tax paid is $26.13, a tax loss of $6,000+ per year on this property alone. Looked at in another way, this is a $6,000+benefit to an individual property owner. This is a gross injustice to a majority of the citizens of Essex County who do not have property in one of the Land Use categories.

An acre of land, outside of the land use program, which is on the water with no structures, is assessed at $325,000, regardless of the amount of waterfront footage. However, this rule does not appear to apply if you are a Board member. Other land generally is assessed at $5,000 or more. In other words someone owning 500 acres in the land use program is assessed a total of $375,000 or $50,000 more than a Now let’s stop this fantasy of crewaterfront property owner of one ating a fifth category of favoritacre. ism and be realistic.

Revisiting Titanic

by A. Kay Oxendine

The movie Titanic came out many years ago, and it was a smash hit. I have a special memory of it that I will always cherish. At the time the idea of Titanic came out, I was working on the movie “The Chamber” and was living in Jackson, Missisisippi. I was working with the famous Shirley Fulton Crumley as her casting assistant. The year was 1995 or 96. Shirley and I were talking and she had this offer to do this gigantic movie Titanic. It would require 6 months, at sea, away from our families. She looked at me, as only Shirley could, and said, “That little girl of yours is too precious for you to be from that long.” I agreed with her and we turned down the movie.

it, and then was gifted the movie over Christmas, and watched it even more! My daughter Rachel watched it so much that she knew each line....and would recite them each time we saw the movie. The Movie represented true, passionate love, and I am such a romantic, I love that that type of love can be captured in any medium. I sometimes wonder where my life would be had I taken this movie with Shirley, but when I look at my children, I like this memory I have just fine.

We went to see the movie again this week: my mother, my daughter and myself. It was so awesome, and I still laughed, cried and cheered, even though this movie has been intergrated When it came out in theatres, I into our lives. was living in Torrance, California with my 2nd husband’s fam- Go see the movie again peeps! ily, and his grandmother (we 3D is the bomb!!!!

March 30, 2012 On March 28, 2012, the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS) sent out a news release about the closure of SportsQuest HPC and how eligible consumers may file for refunds. That release is available online at http://www.vdacs.virginia. gov/news/releases-a/032812sportquest. shtml. VDACS offers the following comments to clarify questions that have arisen: · VDACS did not shut down the Oak Lake Boulevard facility formerly operated by SportsQuest HPC. The cancellation of contracts for this facility occurred automatically through a provision of the Virginia Health Spa Act. As stated in the earlier release: The Virginia Health Spa Act provides that when a health spa facility goes out of business and cannot provide its members with membership at a comparable alternate facility, all contracts are cancelled automatically and eligible members are entitled to receive a prorated refund of the unexpired portion of their contract. · Eligible members who believe they are due a refund as a result of the facility’s closure have until May 25, 2012,

The Parent’s Corner Stormie Omartian, author of many best selling books on the power of prayer, wrote these words about parenting: “it’s the best of jobs; it’s the most difficult of jobs. It can bring you the greatest joy. It can cause the greatest pain. There is nothing as fulfilling and exhilarating. There’s nothing so depleting and exhausting. No area of your life can make you feel more like a success when everything is going well. No area of your life can make you feel more like a failure when things go wrong.” This is taken from her book “The Power of a Praying Parent”. A friend recently passed on to me some suggested “parent prayers” using the Word of God to pray for your children. Place your child’s name in the Scripture in the appropriate place and pray for God’s greatest work in your child’s heart.

that I did. I still teach now, in my old age. I didn’t know it till long after we had married, but my wife worked as a publisher before she moved into the sales and marketing business that her father had started. When she found fragments of my work in my office, she decided that it was all pretty good (I do not wish to sound arrogant—I never thought them good in the first place, but she always believed in me). She used her years of experience and contribution to the publishing house she used to work for, and got me published. Magazines, stories, and then I had my own collection of stories and a novel put out into the bookstores. I still write and publish now, in my old age. I guess God did want me to use my literary gifts after all, as long as I did it the way He wanted me to use them in the end. This is another lesson I’ve learned. Now in my old age, I still remember what had brought me my first real friend and brother, Not too many things I remember now, but that one event I must always commit to the shelves of Memory. And maybe I will still recognize his dark, solid face when we see each other in heaven. I just saw him baptized a year after the incident with his brother, and Indian brought the boy with him to church every Sunday, where they sat at the third-to-last pew. That boy, even though he is in his last year of doctoral studies for anthropology now, he still stands tall as a true man of the Lord. I wonder how he feels for his father,,, I asked Indian about it, when the “proper” burial arrangements were put in order, and he agreed to it almost instantly. So on Running Bear’s gravestone, in grand lettering, I composed his epitaph, a variation of his favorite poem. I called it “Native Brother’s Ending”. The piece reads quite nicely, fitting for what happened on that day when one man lost a brother and another man gained a brother. It reads something like this—

The eight-year old child that Indian took into his care for the memory of his brother was named Rising Eagle, after him. After we managed to calm the child down from the shock of seeing his dead father laying on the ground, he helped us with the burial. I prayed over the body, Indian gave a beautiful off-the-cuff eulogy, and Rising Eagle the Second sang enchanting Native songs. No church-building funeral would have been better than this, given the circumstances. Indian quickly made arrangements to take legal custody of the boy, as the boy had no other family besides Rosalie’s, and they were nowhere to be found. I visited the two often at their home. The joy that a young being brought to his house was evident in the smile on Indian’s face. Many times I sat and listened to my friend tell his nephew stories of their ancestry and people, and before I would leave for my home I would always pester Indian into writing the stories down, like he had planned to do originally, so many years ago. He finally followed through on it, producing two books chronicling his people’s history, myths and legends. I’ve read both volumes extensively, read them over and over again; I’ve learned so much from them. Indian eventually gave me interesting information on my name. “The first part of your name, Silver, stands for purity,” he said to me. “During the course of what we went through together, I have seen you try to purify yourself through God. And I am sure I don’t have to say how you have proven yourself strong like the oak-wood, like the last part of your name.

YOUR SCHOOL NEWS King William Economics and Personal Finance Teams Place First in Region 3 Beginning with this school year’s freshman class, all Virginia high school students have to take and earn credit for the new Economics and Personal Finance class before they graduate. King William High School offered this new course for the first time this year. Suzanne Campbell is the instructor for the new Economics and Personal Finance course. Mrs. Campbell had been teaching many of the new course requirements in the Principles of Business and Marketing class. She also attended the training courses offered last summer through the Virginia Council on Economic Education at VCU and has worked diligently to utilize a variety of materials offered by several non-profits and financial institutions. The goal of this new course is to prepare our youth to be able to make sound economic and financial decisions throughout their lives whether it is contemplating a purchase, selecting an investment, evaluating job opportunities or analyzing the platforms of our politicians. All of the King William Econom-

ics and Personal Finance students participated in the first Governor’s Challenge for both Economics and Personal Finance. Governor Bob McDonnell announced this challenge as a way to promote the new economics and personal finance courses for high school students. The first round of each challenge was completed on-line between March 7 and April 4. Teams of three or four high school students participated from across the state of Virginia. Each test included 30 questions and the students were allowed 35 minutes to complete it. Eight regional winners in each of the divisions were recognized on April 5th. They, and four other high scoring teams in each division, will participate in the live championship challenge held at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond on April 20, 2012. King William High School had the Region 3 winning team in both the Economics Challenge (David Ricardo division) and Personal Finance Challenge. The Economic Challenge Region 3 winning team in the David Ricardo

division includes four juniors; Ryan Walter, Kyle Jennings, Mark Wright and Billy Johnson. They will compete again at VCU on April 20th. Each team will take a written test to determine the teams to pair up in an economics quiz bowl to determine the top team. The Personal Finance Region 3 winning team includes four freshmen; Kelsey McMeekin, Tyler Forbes, Tyler Gilbertson, and Austin Gross. These students must prepare a proposal for a financial case study for their next round of competition and present it to the judges at VCU on April 20th. The Governor’s Challenge, was conducted in partnership with the Virginia Council on Economic Education with support from Appalachian Power, Dominion, Virginia Credit Union and Verizon.

2012 Food and Beverage Expo

The Best New Food Product award went to S. Wallace Edward and Sons of Surry for their bacon steak, a traditional dry cured, hickory smoked bacon.

Tradition, elegance, ingenuity and response to consumer demand took high honors at the Virginia Food and Beverage Expo March 28 in Richmond. A hickorysmoked bacon, a Bloody Mary mix with a taste of the sea and a coldbrewed coffee in a reusable pouch were the winning entries in the Best New Products competition at the biennial trade show. The Expo, a Virginia-only food industry trade show, was sponsored by the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS). It is the state’s premier trade show for Virginia grown and produced products, and 2012 was a record year with nearly 130 exhibitors, more than 1,200 pre-registered buyers and 53 contest entries.

ers put it in a pitcher, fill with water and leave it on the counter overnight to create a concentrate that will keep for a couple of weeks in the refrigerator. One pouch takes 12 to 15 hours to steep and creates a gallon concentrate. “It’s a very viscous mix,” Kristin said, “thus the name Marsh Mud.” Besides its versatility and adaptability – you can make hot or iced coffee to individual strength – the company says another advantage is that cold brewing cuts back the acid by at least fifty percent. The company sells wholesale, retail, online and directly from its Facebook page at Eastern-Shore-Coastal-RoastingCo.

A panel of five judges of food writers, reporters and chefs evaluated the Best New Product competition entries on originality, taste and aroma, creative packaging, visual appeal and presentation.
