Lack of names disqualiďŹ es BY STEPHEN H. COWLES/STAFF WRITER

Playback58@gmail.com ISLE OF WIGHT–Two questions come before Isle of Wight County Circuit Court today, July 17. First, will a motion be granted to

dismiss, without prejudice, a recall petition against Herb DeGroft. He’s the county school board member representing the Hardy District. Second, will the petitioners be allowed to re-file with a qualifying

number of signatures. Judge Carl Eason is scheduled to hear the matter at 11 a.m. State code requires that such documents must be signed by at least 10 percent of the registered voters

for the targeted officer in his district and in the most recent election, where DeGroft was put into office. IOW NAACP President Dottie Harris said 206 names were needed, but only 201 signatures were

valid. This lack of certified names is evidently the reason the Commonwealth Attorney of Suffolk has filed to drop the matter. The Suffolk SEE JUDGE, P. A8

PDCCC awarded $90,000 for career coach program Students will be advised by professional CAIN MADDEN/MANAGING EDITOR cain.madden@tidewaternews.com

FRANKLIN—The Paul D. Camp Community College career coach program recently received an upgrade. The Hampton Roads Community Foundation awarded the college $90,000, which the college will use over a three-year period to hire a full-time coach. Previously, all of the coaches were part-time, and it limited their effectiveness, said Candice Artis, the in-school youth program coordinator. “Students may not be able to come by one-onone during your hours,� Artis said. “You are also not able to become as integrated in the school and all of its events.� All seven public high schools in area have a parttime career coach, includ-

ing Franklin High School. Principal Travis Felts said Career Coach Olivia Crowley does a great job. “She has organized career fairs, helped students with college and scholarship applications and is a liaison between Franklin High School and Paul D. Camp Community College,� Felts said. “She also speaks to senior English and government classes about career options and helps students develop a plan to meet their career goals.  “She works in collaboration with our guidance department, focusing especially on our seniors as they transition from high school to college, the military or the work force,� he continued. Tara Atkins-Brady, vice president of academic and student development, said studies have shown that

over the next decade a high number of jobs will require a post-secondary degree. Career coaches can help students on that path. “The program provides the groundwork for a successful transition to the skilled workforce and this grant will allow us to serve the students more efficiently,� said Atkins-Brady. Felicia Blow, vice president for Institutional Advancement and Executive Director of the Paul D. Camp Community College Foundation, said the number one major for students coming into college is, “I don’t know.� Career coaches have access to programs that can help a student figure out what they might like to do with their lives.

Post Office until a new one was built on Route 460 sometime in the 1960s.

Take shelter against high heat Temperatures expected in upper 90s STAFF REPORT

With the heat index looking to break 100 this week, residents might want to be careful about spending too much time outdoors. Jon McGee, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Wakefield, said that the heat index through Friday could get as high as 104. Temperatures could rise as high as 97 degrees. According to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, during 2012 there were 21 heat-related

deaths in Virginia. The Virginia Department of Health recommends that people avoid outdoor work from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., when the sunlight exposure is greatest. Other tips by the VDH: • Keep cool in an air-conditioned area. Take a cool shower or a bath. Consider a trip to the mall or a local library or visit a friend with air conditioning. Spending at least two hours per day in air conditioning SEE SHELTER, P. A8

Paper mill down for maintenance STAFF REPORT

The International Paper Mill is down while undergoing its inaugural maintenance outage. A range of work will be happening at this time, including repairs, inspections and new installations, all of which required the mill to be shut down. A number of contractors will be on site, so there will be increased traffic. Local merchants, restaurants and hotels can expect additional business. IP has worked with the Franklin-Southampton Chamber of Commerce to help

contractors navigate the area and to promote local businesses. IP plans to restart the mill Tuesday, July 23. When the mill restarts, due to clearing the steam lines, steam blows will likely be heard. “Throughout the construction and start-up activities, the support the mill has seen from our community has been, and continues to be outstanding,� said Jenny Hutto, communications manager with Franklin Mill – International Paper. “Please know how much we appreciate your interest, enthusiasm and support.�

YOUR TURN

Affordable Care Act still presenting problems TO THE EDITOR,

are not exclusive to employers alone; individuals will be faced with the same confusing and onerous laws associated with the act but are not being given the exemption corporations are. I have a child who came to me this weekend wanting to know if he should renew his lease come September or just move back home in order to be able to afford the mandated health insurance required January 2014, because he has no idea what it is going to cost!

“Obamcare” was signed into law over 3 years ago, and yet we are still seeing problems and controversy arise as a result of its implementation. The latest in this saga of embarrassments for the Affordable Care Act is the delay of enforcement of the employer mandate by the President’s administration due to a number of burdens which will result in compliance issues. However, these burdens

Thankfully the GOP has decided to address the issue and will attempt to delay the individual mandate as well. Congressman Randy Forbes has always been a spearhead in deriding the hazards of this ill-conceived law, and my hope is he will continue the fight for this latest installment of injustices to American taxpayers!

Looking to the Future

Of special note was the observation that in 96.28 percent of the time, no adults were involved. There appeared to be some immeasurable interaction between the granules and the young minds. This particular principle will require further studies. Of special interest were the long-term implications of such activity when started at the juvenile stage of human development. To measure this, subjects were followed into adulthood. At an alarming rate, they entered and excelled in those activities requiring the ongoing exercise of the imagination, including, but not limited to, teaching, motherhood, engineering, research, construction, architecture and yes — even politics. Further studies will need to be done, but as of date, no substitute has been found for that mysterious but intriguing marvel known as the “sand pile.” REX ALPHIN of Walters is a farmer, businessman, author, county supervisor and contributing columnist for The Tidewater News.

Our position on local issues

Littering not a victimless crime n last Friday’s Outdoors section of The Tidewater News, a story ran about the trash that winds up in the Blackwater River (Litter cluttering Blackwater River, July 12, 2013). Franklin city manager Randy Martin noted efforts undertaken by the city to reduce trash in the streets and roadside ditches, which can not only wind up in our rivers but also lead to street-level flooding. Riverkeeper Jeff Turner, the guardian of our local waterways, notes the situation has improved over the years, but he thinks there is much room left for improvement. Turner, with the help of other volunteers, has literally removed tons of trash from local rivers over the last several years and is an expert without equal on the topic. It is unlikely that anyone who litters intentionally sets out to do environmental damage when tossing refuse out of his or her vehicles’ windows. In fact, it is highly unlikely

I

that the offenders are thinking about anything at all – other than themselves. Littering is not a victimless crime, (or misdemeanor), and what may seem at the time to be a completely harmless act does in fact have several negative consequences. The increased costs of picking up roadside trash and storm drain maintenance go directly to the cities’, and counties’, bottom lines. Trash that makes it to the river does significant damage to the waterways’ ecosystems and poses an often life-threatening risk to wildlife. And, if nothing else, it just makes the environment in which we live together look like a mess. There is no justifiable excuse in littering, and it is truly just a habit of the selfish and lazy. So the next time you roll the window down to dispose of a piece of trash, think before you throw. There are many good reasons to do so.

fter a large (well, actually pretty small) scientific study just conducted by a team (okay- just one) of highly respected experts (he is probably an expert in SOME field), it has been concluded through rigorous statistical data that one key factor toward the establishment of social, physical and emotional maturation can be attributed toward the early and continuing exposure to the cultural and engineering phenomenon commonly referred to as the “sand pile.” Studies show that, at a young age, humans show a far greater level of creative and imaginative capacity having the advantage of regular interaction with large piles of semiwhite granulated particles. Scientists recorded the strange but obvious attraction between such inorganic heaps and developing minds. Without being instructed, such small beings were observed injecting their feet and hands amongst the particles with obvious satisfaction. For some, simply climbing to the crest of said hill provided remarkable enthusiasm and refreshment. Others began constructing structures using no certified blueprint. Small mountains came into existence. Roads were meticulously laid out in a startling though organized fashion. Tunnels were constructed deep below ground level. Walls were laid out alongside paths and smoothed on topside (perhaps for future fortification?). Some large flats were created alongside roadbeds, resembling fields to be planted or crops to be harvested.

O

ur time on active duty is drawing to a close and it’s time to start thinking about what will come after. I’m looking at prospects in aviation rather than tires, but the real world is going through an economic shrinking process and airlines are laying off, not hiring. I like the idea of eating in the future for me and my family, so I apply for and am granted an indefinite extension on active duty. The sigh of relief is crowded out by the next logical question: Where am I going? Orders assign me to the training center at Pensacola, Florida, specifically to Training Squadron Six at Whiting Field, Milton, Florida. Whiting Field is actually two airfields, north and south. My squadron is on the north side and trains pilots for multi-engine aircraft and basic instruments. The aircraft is a Beechcraft twin engine assemblage called the SNB in official navy terms. It has a few other names assigned by those who have flown it for the 25 years or so since its acceptance into the military arsenal. The venerable aircraft has served on virtually every continent on earth, has iterations that include floats, skis, gunnery turrets, bombardier and camera pods for photo reconnaissance, and an assortment of transport configurations. Its characteristic twin engines and vertical stabilizers are easily recognized from a distance. It has tolerated novice and very experienced pilots alike with a certain air of indifference. My squadron’s mission is to train student pilots in multi-engine work and basic instruments. The syllabus includes a full familiarization with the aircraft, including takeoff and landing. In the past, some instrument syllabuses did not include this part. My job is to train to a level of competence in those operations. Other instructors will take over for the instrument work. The “Twin Beech” is not the easiest of aircraft to learn to fly and my experiences are a mixed bag of competent smoothness interrupted by harrowing ineptness. I’m thankful for the ruggedness of this basic airframe; it is tested to limits that I would not have imagined just a short time ago. I endure. A short time after joining the squadron, I’m invited to join the maintenance department, and I accept with enthusiasm. I miss working directly with crews, and my flying duties will be as a maintenance test pilot. I quickly learn to take off, fly to a working area, completely shut down and restart each engine in turn, check emergency landing gear extensions, complete a lengthy checklist, and be back on the ground in about a half hour. I learn to love the idiosyncrasies and reliability of the aircraft. I use its grass field capability more than a few times over the year or so I spend in maintenance. Much latitude is given to maintenance pilots. A cross-country trip to Franklin, Virginia is just one of the perks; a phone call to my family makes the necessary arrangements. The sun is low in the morning sky when a fellow pilot and I depart the training areas, refuel at the Greenville-Spartanburg airport and arrive at the Franklin Municipal Airport. A call to my family brings transportation from the airport and we arrive at the farm in time for supper. We visit, spend the night, and leave the next morning. It’s a pleasant break from work and my fellow pilot enjoys the change in scenery and hospitality. In late January 1963, my father dies. A couple of fellow pilots volunteer to fly a cross-country trip to deliver me to Franklin for his funeral and a few days of the aftermath. Such courtesies are commonplace among the military family. A kind person at the Franklin airport gives me a ride to the farm. My father is buried at Mt Carmel church at Walters, in a plot across Windsor road, alongside my brother. It’s a sad occasion. My father had a long period of illness in his life, double pneumonia and pleurisy. Doctors at the Medical College Hospital at Richmond attempted to save him with some new, experimental drugs commonly called steroids. He was released for home care and required daytime nursing for an extended period. Much to the surprise of many, my father regained a modicum of good health and was active for some fourteen years following the ordeal. Many remarked that the care and support of his many friends provided a motivation to recover. A family member delivers me to the Naval Air Station Norfolk, to catch a ride back to Pensacola. It doesn’t take long; military flights are open to any military personnel that can be accommodated. My military family cares.

LAUREN’S REVIEW By Lauren Bradshaw

A

A5

Pacific Rim, better than your average action-packed monster movie

|

s a movie fan, I love when movies surprise me. Be it an awesome twist ending or a surprising character death, I always enjoy myself the most in a theater when I am surprised. Thankfully, that is the feeling I had after seeing Guillermo del Toro’s (Pan’s Labyrinth) new film Pacific Rim.  While I try to be objective when going into the theater, there are some films that I am more excited about than others. Consider Pacific Rim an “other.� I am not a fan of the Transformers movies and thought Pacific Rim would be just like that, a silly story with so many outrageous battle scenes, the film becomes more monotonous than enjoyable; but surprisingly, del Toro’s monster film actually entertained me, especially the first act! Of course there were some battle scenes (mostly toward the end of the film) that went on too long, but Pacific Rim is the kind of summer popcorn movie the studios should be producing! It has a great cast, state of the art CGI, and an interesting spin on a tired storyline. While I wouldn’t necessarily suggest you rush out to theaters to see this film, it’s fun for what it is, a big-budget summer blockbuster with monsters, robots, and Charlie Hunnam. The year is 2020. For years, humans have been battling the Kaiju, giant alien monsters that rise from a crack in the ocean floor and wreak havoc on the world’s major cities. At first, the Kaiju were indestructible; modern weaponry stood no chance to defeat these Godzilla-esque nightmares. That is, until mankind develops Jaegers, giant robots that are just as big (and destructive) as the Kaiju and contain advanced weaponry. Due to the enormity of the Jaegers, two-person teams are commissioned to jointly pilot the left and right sides of each machine. Think Maverick and Goose in Top Gun, except instead of

THE TIDEWATER NEWS

singing “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling� in bars to bond with each other, the Jaeger pilots use a machine to sync their minds together, which enables them to control the robot as one. Due to their strong mental connection, which allows for better control of the Jaeger, Raleigh (Charlie Hunnam) and his brother Yancy (Diego Klattenhoff ) are two of the best pilots in the world; their track-record for killing Kaijus is legendary. Unfortunately, this notoriety is short-lived after a battle with a particularly nasty Kaiju goes tragically wrong, resulting in Yancy’s death and Raleigh’s retirement from the Jaeger forces. Cut to five years later. The Kaiju problem is only getting worse, with multiple monsters rising through the fissure at the same time that are also more dangerous than their predecessors. Because the Kaiju are also coming through at a progressively higher rate, the production of Jaegers has become too costly and it’s impossible to keep up with the demand. In order to save the world, the Jaeger force, led by Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba), has to make one final push to destroy the Kaiju once and for all and they need their best pilots for the job. Raleigh is brought out of retirement and given his refurbished Jaeger and a new co-pilot. He is also introduced to Kaiju expert (and comic relief ) Dr. Newton Geiszler (Charlie Day) and mathematician Gottlieb (Burn Gorman); both are determined to find the best ways to use the Jaegers against the enemy and finally destroy the Kaiju’s seabed portal (a feat not easily accomplished). But will all of this be enough to save humanity or will Earth finally succumb to the monsters? Obviously, Pacific Rim has similarities to Transformers. How can you not draw comparisons when both films feature giant robots engaging in battle? What Pacific Rim does right, however, is showcase

the talents of its fantastic cast and focus as much on the human story as the robots. The audience is shown character arcs, as well as actual meaningful relationships between characters, which allows you to care whether they live or die. Not to mention, the CGI is so incredible, it’s easy to lose yourself in the world of the monsters vs. robots. I, for one, have already

started planning my evacuation from D.C. if one of these things comes out of the Atlantic. If you’re a fan of action-packed, CGI-heavy films, you won’t be disappointed with Pacific Rim. Admittedly, these aren’t my favorite types of movies, but I did appreciate del Toro’s ability to have a story rise above its incredible action sequences. I never thought that I

would enjoy myself at a monsters vs. robots movies, but it looks like that day has finally come.

THE TIDEWATER NEWS

NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC OF AN APPLICATION BY VIRGINIA ELECTRIC AND POWER COMPANY FOR REVISION OF RATE ADJUSTMENT CLAUSE: RIDER W, WARREN COUNTY POWER STATION, FOR THE RATE YEAR COMMENCING APRIL 1, 2014 CASE NO. PUE-2013-00065 On May 31, 2013, Virginia Electric and Power Company d/b/a Dominion Virginia Power (“Dominion Virginia Powerâ€? or “Companyâ€?), pursuant to § 56-585.1 A 6 of the Code of Virginia (“Codeâ€?) and the Rules Governing Utility Rate Applications and $QQXDO,QIRUPDWLRQDO)LOLQJV Âł5DWH&DVH5XOHV´ ÂżOHGZLWKWKH State Corporation Commission (“Commissionâ€?) its application for approval of an annual revision of its rate adjustment clause (“RACâ€?) Rider W (“Applicationâ€?). Through its Application, the Company seeks to recover costs associated with the development of the Warren County Power Station, a PHJDZDWW QRPLQDO QDWXUDOJDVÂżUHGFRPELQHGF\FOH electric generating facility and associated transmission interconnection facilities in Warren County, Virginia. Dominion Virginia Power proposes to apply the revised RAC for service on and after April 1, 2014. In Case No. PUE-2011-00042, the Commission approved construction and operation of the Warren County Power Station by Dominion Virginia Power. In conjunction with this approval, the Commission approved a RAC, designated as Rider W, to allow the Company to recover costs associated with developing the Warren County facility, including projected construction work in progress and associated allowance for funds used during construction (“AFUDCâ€?). Pursuant to the Final Order in Case No. PUE-2011-00042, the Company is UHTXLUHGWRÂżOHD5LGHU:DSSOLFDWLRQZLWKWKH&RPPLVVLRQHDFK year. In the present proceeding, Dominion Virginia Power proposes a total revenue requirement of approximately $122,621,000 for service rendered during its proposed rate year, which, if approved, would commence on April 1, 2014, and extend through March 31, 2015. This proposal represents a revenue requirement increase of approximately $39.6 million over that associated with Rider W rates that are currently in effect. The Company is proposing two updated Rider W tariffs to be applicable during the pre-commercial operations period and during commercial operations. If the proposed Rider W revisions are approved, the impact on customer bills for service would depend on the customer’s rate schedule and usage. For example, implementation of Dominion Virginia Power’s proposed Rider W would increase the monthly bill of a residential customer using 1,000 kilowatt hours per month by approximately $0.39 for the pre-commercial operations period, based on presently effective Rider W rates, and by approximately $0.95, beginning December 1, 2014 (the projected commercial operations date for the Warren County Power Station). Dominion Virginia Power requests that the rate of return on common equity (“ROEâ€?) established in its 2013 Biennial Review Proceeding be the ROE used in this proceeding for the calculation of the projected annual revenue requirement for the 2014 Rate Year, plus a 100 basis point enhanced return applicable to a combined-cycle generating station as described in § 56-585.1 A 6 of the Code. Until such a determination on ROE is made in the Biennial Review Proceeding, the Company requests the use of 12.50% as the placeholder ROE. The 12.50% ROE represents the 11.50% ROE the Company has proposed in the 2013 Biennial Review Proceeding, plus the 100 basis point enhanced return. Interested persons are encouraged to review the Application and supporting documents for the details of these and other proposals. The Commission entered an Order for Notice and Hearing that, among other things, scheduled a public hearing on December 10, 2013, at 10 a.m., in the Commission’s second Ă€RRUFRXUWURRPORFDWHGLQWKH7\OHU%XLOGLQJ(DVW0DLQ Street, Richmond, Virginia 23219, to receive testimony from members of the public and evidence related to the Application from the Company, any respondents, and the Commission’s Staff.

Curatorial Talk: Country Stores STAFF REPORT

ISLE OF WIGHT—At 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, August 4, Isle of Wight County Museum Curator Tracey Neikirk will host a talk on country stores in America. Country stores tell the story of America’s growth and the development of the community. The country store was not just a place to pick up a few canned goods or some thread. It was also a meeting place where patrons could hear the local news, read out-of-town newspapers and pick-up mail. Since colonial times, the general store was the center of the community. Stores provided foods such as coffee, sugar, canned goods and candy. They also carried farm equipment, fabric and hardware. Politicians also held rallies at country stores. In the 1800s, the United States Postal Service realized that the country store was the best location to send and receive mail

in rural communities. Today, some country stores still perform special duties such as game checks for hunters. In rural America, the country store is still an important part of everyday life.

The event is free, and reservations are not required. For more information, contact the Isle of Wight County Museum at (757) 356-1223 or visit www.historicisleofwight.com

that will be used in support of the local Cover 3 Foundation, which strives to inspire and motivate youth to achieve their goals and conquer adversity through positive, personal and passionate coaching. This project is representative of Rotary’s focus on service above self that also includes fundraising that allows the Club to give back to the community--as described below. At the June 28 last meeting of the 2012-2013 year, the Club held a special recognition day to present two annual scholarships to graduating high school seniors and distribute checks to many of the community groups supported by the Club through its major fundraising event: the Paul D. Camp Community College and Regional Workforce Development Center/ Rotary Club of Franklin Bowl-A-Thon. With funds raised last year from this annual event, the Club provided $3,000 for scholarships and $12,257.77 in donations to various deserving community organizations. Recipients include the James L. Camp, Jr. YMCA; the American Legion Post #73 for Boys and Girls State; Franklin High School DECA; Colonial Virginia Council, BSA; National Fire Safety Council; Paul D. Camp Community Foundation; Franklin Cooperative Ministry; Rotary International Foundation; Children’s Center Literacy Project; Emmanuel Episcopal Church; the Genieve Shelter; and other projects including a gift to the Rotary International Foundation. In addition to monetary gifts, last year under the leadership of then President Frank Rabil, the club established the first Rotarian of the Year Award and an annual Public Information Plan. The Club also facilitated a joint meeting with the local Kiwanis and Lions Clubs to explore ways the group can collaborate on community projects, with plans to continue joint meetings. With a lot to celebrate, the Club looks forward to another year with its opportunities to expand on the good work already under way. In preparation, President Belt led a brainstorming session for feedback on new avenues to explore, promising that this

year would be a year of discussion. Suggestions included more local fundraising, membership building with an emphasis on recruiting younger members, encouragement of member

donations to the Rotary Foundation and member participation in the Rotary Legacy Bequest Society; and consideration of sponsoring a formal ball prior to the annual Bowl-A-Thon.

The career coaches provide students with information on not only attending Paul D. Camp Community College, but also other educational venues and options. Coaches work with dual-enrolled students as well. Leigh Davis, Hampton Roads Community Foundation director of programs and donor services, said the

foundation seeks to encourage students to receive some form of post-high school graduation education, either a degree or certificate. Research has suggested that career counselors can help. Another factor the grant is looking to do is to assist students to graduate on time, and research has shown that dual-enrollment also helps. “I think that a high school degree is not as helpful as it used to be,” Davis said. “We want to encourage kids com-

ing out of high school to have a plan, and part of that plan is to further their education, in a specific field, to obtain a higher wage job.” The grant will be matched by up to $50,000 by the Virginia Community College System through the Rural Virginia Initiative. Blow said 20.1 percent of people in the area have a bachelor’s degree or better, compared to 34.4 percent as the Virginia average. The state average for a high school degree or better is

86.6 percent, while in Franklin that is 76.8 percent. “The initiative is focused on improving workforce skills and increasing the earning potential in these localities,” she said. “Businesses won’t come in if there isn’t a skilled workforce in place.” The RVI has identified the expansion of the high school career coach programs as a proven solution to address these issues. The matching grant will come in June 2014.

PLANNING: Water, sewer, traffic among concerns FROM PAGE A1 vices whenever the needs arise. He also recommended a ladder truck for the Windsor firefighters. Chase said he’s seeing a decline not only in volunteers for fire and rescue, but in civic groups generally. He added the WVFD has a strong core in staffing. “We want to be engaged in any conversation regarding water and sewer,” said Frank Haltom, assistant director of General Services for the county. The panels wanted to know what is the anticipated capacity of the future sewer pump station and force main for Phase A, and if the sewer line would accommodate additional development within Windsor. “It’s almost impossible to figure capacity because no design has been done,” Haltom said. “You have to size sewers almost perfectly.” Cleansing velocity, as he phrased it, is needed. A

pipe that’s too large, for example, could allow sludge to settle. “Sewer capacity has to be designed specifically for the customer,” he added. Haltom said the town’s water system will not support initial development. “We’re in the process of building pipeline to help further economic development prospects and make the area more marketable,” he said, and added that funds would be allocated for design this year, with money allocated for construction next year. Both panels raised traffic concerns, specifically: • Additional traffic, no planned roadway improvements and no identified source of funding • Additional residential developments and their impacts • Increasing train traffic and vehicular traffic backups Truck traffic using Route 460 instead of the future Route 460 bypass

Matthew Smolnik, assistant director of IOW Planning and Zoning, said train traffic has gone up around 40 percent. For preventing traffic backups, he said the department has lobbied the Virginia Department of Transportation, “but that’s their responsibility.” During his presentation on the Countywide Transportation Plan, which was adopted May 2011, Smolnik looked at 10 intersections that were analyzed in a study. Recommended improvements and projected costs to Route 258/Route 460: Alternative A – Dedicated turn lanes ($1.5-$3.7 million) Alternative B – Overpass with RR grade separation ($60-$130 million). This has been rejected. Route 460/Court/ Church/Bank Streets: Realign cross streets to form a 4-way crossing ($0.9-$1.6 million) These upgrades are “intended to address poor lev-

els of service caused by high traffic volumes and poor roadway conditions.” Carita Richards, mayor of Windsor, said she’s concerned about the proposal for the six-leg, and how it would affect both traffic and residents. “We’ve inherited that intersection, and it’s what makes Windsor what it is,” said Beverly Walkup, director of Planning and Zoning. “We can’t solve the problems now,” Walkup added. “I think we need to broaden our thinking and think about alternatives. No, we don’t have all the answers. We have got to get (corporate, local, railroad and state) representatives to the table.” The Isle of Wight Planning Commission is scheduled to meet at 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 23, in the county courthouse. The Windsor Planning Commission is scheduled to meet at 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 24, in council chambers at 8 E. Windsor Blvd.

JUDGE: Lack of names disqualifies FROM PAGE A1 CA took the case because IOW CA Wayne Farmer had to recuse himself from the issue. The basis for the CA being involved at all is found in this excerpt from Virginia State Code 24.2-337: “The attorney for the Commonwealth shall represent the Commonwealth in any trial under this article. If the proceeding is against the attorney for the Commonwealth, the court

shall appoint an attorney to represent the Commonwealth. Any officer proceeded against shall have the right to demand a trial by jury.” The petitioners are part of the Commonwealth, so an attorney will represent them. Both Harris and Rosa Holmes-Turner, the team captain for the DeGroft petition, have said they intend to file the petition again with the necessary signatures.

DeGroft and Newport District Supervisor Byron “Buzz” Bailey are the targets of recall because they were revealed to have privately circulated emails containing crude humor. President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama were the subjects of several of the pages. Fellow board members and county staff were recipients. Harris was given a copy of the emails by IOW school board member Denise Tynes,

who reportedly received them anonymously. The revelation of the emails and calls for both men to resign were made during a May 16 Board of Supervisors meeting. Both DeGroft and Bailey, who is also facing a recall petition hearing on Monday, Aug. 12, have repeatedly apologized in word and print, but each has declined to resign. DeGroft, however, chose not to run for reelection this year. Bailey’s term doesn’t expire until 2015.

Dating back to 1730, according to records, the settlement on the banks of the Blackwater River has survived two enormous fires, which nearly wiped out the village. Three floods, the latest in 2006, ruined nearly all the homes and businesses when the river overflowed its banks. Each time, the residents reorganized and rebuilt. Some businesses did not continue, while others cleaned up and opened as usual months later. Many of the homes could not be saved, so residents just rebuilt, although rebuilding is becoming less and less obvious. During the early years, the village lay quietly on the northern end of the county up until the 1800s. But it became a bustling settlement after the railroad was built in the mid-1800s, with stores, boarding houses, a

During the Civil War, more than 5,000 Confederate soldiers who successfully prevented Union soldiers from crossing the Blackwa-

ter, were stationed there. Artifacts from that time can still be found in and around the area. “Oh, the history of this tiny settlement is impressive,” said Jane March, president of the Zuni Historical Society. She wrote a book about the settlement titled “ZooNye.” “It should be called the little Village with Heart,” she added. March, who plans to do additional research and write a sequel, does not want the history of Zuni to be forgotten. “We’re trying to preserve as much of it as we can,” she said, adding that anyone interested in the history may contact her at 763-9015. Today, Zuni has only about 50 residents, but said March, “almost any one of them can tell you about their town. “It is their home.”

SHELTER: Temperatures expected in upper 90s FROM PAGE A1 significantly reduces the risk of heat-related illnesses. When temperatures reach the upper 90s or above, a fan may not prevent heat-related illness. • Drink plenty of fluids (2 to 4 glasses of cool fluids each hour) to replace salt and minerals lost from sweating, drink fruit juice or a sports beverage during exercise or when you have to work outside. However, talk to your doctor first if you’re on a fluid-restricted diet or medications, or on a

low-salt diet. • Avoid sunburn and wear light clothing. Sunburn limits your body’s ability to keep itself cool and causes loss of body fluids. Use sunscreen with a high SPF. Lighter weight clothing that is loose fitting and light colored is more comfortable during extreme temperatures. Use a hat to keep the head cool. Give your body a break as the heat wave can be stressful on your body. Limit physical activity until your body adjusts to the heat. • Never leave children or pets in cars. Temperatures

inside a car can reach more than 150 degrees quickly, resulting in heat stroke and death. • Use the buddy system if you’re working outside. If you’re working outside and suffer a heat-related illness, you could become confused or could lose consciousness. Therefore, make sure someone else knows of you plans. • Be sure to check on the elderly and neighbors without air conditioning.

Rain dampens, not obstructs AC businesses Some companies find ways to work despite inclement weather BY STEPHEN H. COWLES/STAFF WRITER Playback58@gmail.com

Average retail gasoline prices in Virginia have risen 10.1 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.43/g yesterday, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 4,081 gas outlets in Virginia. This compares with the national average that has increased 11.7 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.62/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy. com. Including the change in gas prices in Virginia during the past week, prices yesterday were 17.5 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 2.9 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 0.4 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 19.5 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago.

COURTLAND—The rain of the past several weeks has been more of a slight hindrance than major obstacle, say area businesses that specialize in repairing or replacing air conditioning. “Glenn tells people this: Any time there’s severe weather, it taxes the unit,” said Sarah Rawlings, co-owner of Rawlings Mechanical Corp. in Courtland. “Those on the edge have to be repaired or replaced.” Extremes in weather can cause problems that usually wouldn’t happen, she added. “We’ve had right many calls due to the hot weather for some minor and major repairs, even replacements,” Sarah said. “What the rain does for us, especially the plumbing crew, is we can’t go in because the ground’s too wet to install insulation under houses.” The business has been fortunate that the frequent rain has only slowed the plumbing aspect, said she, but not the heating, ventilation and air conditioning aspect. At Henderson Heat and Air Inc., the company looks for ways to get

The team from Air Mechanix in Franklin sets up an air conditioning unit to be lifted on the roof at city hall. around rain delays when possible, said owner Jim Henderson. “I think there’s been a slight to moderate impact,” he said of recent storms. “When it’s raining and we have to do work outside, obviously we can be delayed a few hours to days. It has not really hurt us that bad. There are ways to get things done,” said Henderson. For example, the technicians can set up a shelter over the air conditioning unit. Pop-up tents have been quite useful. “The worse thing we’ve seen is if we need to get under the house,” he said, explaining that some homes are quite low to the ground and when flooding is discovered the crew can’t work in those several inches of water. “It’s not safe or healthy,” Henderson said. “It’s a little aggravating and difficult.” The storms haven’t been an issue so much as the temperatures for Parker Darden, co-owner of Parker Darden Heating and Air Conditioning Inc. in Franklin. “It’s hot and the humidity is high,” Darden said with laughter.

“The weather’s not been dramatically different than other years,” he added. “It’s rained a little bit more. We’re busy as usual.” Likewise for Modern Oil Corp., which has locations in Franklin and Smithfield. “The rain hasn’t hurt us too much, except doing work outside and insulation work. That can put a damper on plans,” said Bernard Rook, operations manager. Service calls have been plentiful, averaging 10 a day, he added. “Some days we can get them all, some we can’t. It depends on how long each job takes. The hotter it gets, the more they (AC units) break down,” Rook said. Air Mechanix of Franklin has also found a way to work outside more effectively when sun and rain seem to conspire against the crew. “The rain got in the way last week when we changed out a rooftop unit on Franklin City Hall,” said co-owner Tim Parrish. “I made a purchase that I never want to be without again. I bought a 10x10 canopy and set it over the unit on the roof while we worked. Sure enough a gigantic rainstorm came up and we contin-

ued working. When the sun was out it also gave a little shade to work under. I don’t know why it took so long to think about using it. Now if I can figure out how to put a lightning rod on top I will have the perfect tool.” Parrish added that his business has seen the biggest increase in its volume of service and replacement calls in all 20 years in the AC business. “The higher temperatures put more stress on the AC system due to the higher pressures and longer runtimes,” he said. “All this means they consume more electricity, which increases the cost of operation.” Factoring in humidity caused by the frequent rains, Parrish added, breathing could be a difficult issue, particularly for the elderly. He noted that the most frequent failures in AC units his team encounters are with motors, capacitors and Freon. Higher humidity also has meant more drain overflows, which can stain ceilings. Parrish offers these tips to reduce operating costs: Raise the thermostat setting, change air filters often and have regular service performed.

RANKLIN—If you’ve ever dealt with a debt collection agency, it is typically cold and distant, often not even based in this country. Tiffany Warren, of Warren Investments Group in Franklin, understands this perception and works to emphasize the human element. ���We are local. Debtors can come in and actually meet me. You are not dealing with 15 to 20 people,” Warren said. “The taboo of collection agencies is that they call a debtor and they attack, but I like to get to know the debtor and what is going on in their life, sit down and meet with them face-to-face and figure out a plan to help them solve their debt and get their credit back on track.”

An example on a debt she had taken involved an older gentleman who was on a breathing machine and had a fixed income. She met with him and got to understand his situation. “What happened was that he had a credit card years ago when he was in better health and employed, but as time went on his health got worse and he was no longer able to work,” Warren said. “I don’t think of debtors as bad people because we all have bills, and we all fall on hard times.” She was able to settle with that man for less than what he owed because it was a debt that she owned. Warren and her husband, Antwuan, who is active duty air force, got the idea when they noticed that no one was collecting locally. “There are a lot of businesses in Franklin that

were just letting that money go unclaimed,” she said. “They are really busy with their day-to-day jobs and don’t have time to track this money down.” Today, the couple works with Cars and Credit along with other individuals in collecting debt, and they are hoping for growth. “My hope for the future is to bring employment to the area,” Warren said, adding that in 2014 she hopes to hire some people locally to help in collecting debt. Warren Investment Group operates in the business incubator on Mechanic Street. “I liked what I saw when I visited it,” Warren said. “I liked that they had smaller offices, but that I could move into a bigger office when I hire more people.”

New 4-H agent grew up in program Celia Brockway brings enthusiasm, experience BY STEPHEN H. COWLES/STAFF WRITER Playback58@gmail.com

COURTLAND—Celia Brockway has been active in 4-H since she was a child. Today, at 24, she’s the 4-H youth development agent for the Virginia Cooperative Extension in Southampton and Isle of Wight counties. “I grew up in Minnesota and started as a Clover Bud, which is for 5 to 8-year-olds,” Brockway said, adding that she continued for an additional 11 years. 4-H allows members to stay active through their first year of college. She wasn’t the only one in her family involved with 4-H. Both of her parents, Kathy and Bill Brockway, also grew up in the organization. Today they are veterinarians. Her siblings, Joe, Lynn and Hannah Brockway are also 4-H participants. Hannah, 14, is still active. Lynn is also using skills she’s learned while attending vet

school. “All of us are kind of involved, even if it’s from a distance,” Brockway said. Raising sheep was a particular hobby of her father, which enabled the children to help. “I raised market lambs, showed horses at fairs with my sister. I also raised rabbits. We all did it together,” she said. Other projects Brockway said she’s has done have included selling clothing and textiles, quilting, and running day camps when she served as a 4-H ambassador on county level. There was also Arts In, a performing arts program, which was done live at state fairs. “We showed livestock there as well,” Brockway said. “It’s a Minnesota thing.” She found her new position while looking for jobs within the area. “4-H is something I had always considered (for a career), and I

happened to come across this. I couldn’t give up this opportunity,” said Brockway, who had attended a leadership course during college. “I thought I would be a good fit considering past experiences and activities,” she added. Her work began June 24 with camp (“I was in my element.”) at the Airfield Conference Center near Wakefield. “I’ve seen a lot of positive results come out of the 4-H camp youth program.” Brockway said. “As a youth, you find what your passion is, and you’ve got support of 4-H, in general. You grow into a confident individual who has a skill set. You have the ability to become a well-rounded individual.” Though her background was actually in music, she said also learned quite a bit about leadership through 4-H, which included how to manage time “and everything like that. It’s a learning opportunity that a lot of kids miss out.

Holt is showing her award in health, one of the four H’s of the national organization. “I want them to grow into their passion while gaining life skills, citizenship and being involved in their community with 4-H, Brockway said. Now she’s gearing up for the county fairs of Franklin-Southampton and Isle of Wight.

“I’m learning about them,” Brockway said with a light laugh. To learn more about the local program, contact her at 653-2572 (Courtland office); 365-6258 (Isle of Wight office) or cbrock7@vt. edu.
