FRANKLIN—When local divers Francis Widmeyer and Michael Collins go diving, they are expecting to find forgotten treasures. That treasure is normally logs that have been in the river for many years, which the duo sells to make luxury furniture items. Not long ago, however, Widmeyer was diving and put his hand on something unexpected. “I was swimming along the bottom of the river, and I found a small pot,� he said. Knowing that he was not supposed to remove items like this, Widmeyer put the item in a stump and surfaced. They contacted the state archeologist and were

COURTLAND—If you think building a rollercoaster out of steel beams, nuts and bolts could be difficult, try using pretzels and hot glue guns. Justin Heiser and James Williams, both of Courtland, were reminded of that recently when they participated in the annual contest sponsored by Snyder’s of Hanover, which makes pretzels and other snacks. The event was again held at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg. This year’s challenge was to make a model of the theme park’s Alpengeist rollercoaster. “Me and my friend, James Williams, have been doing this a couple of years now,� Heiser said. “We

built a pretzel rollercoaster, took a picture, sent it to the Hanover website, and just waited for judges to judge. They liked ours and we made it to the finals.� He learned about the contest when he was in seventh grade and a teacher told them about it. Heiser said he and classmates build such a rollercoaster even then. He added that on deciding to first enter the contest together two years ago, the boys just started building and went along. Drawings were used the next time to be “a little bit more prepared,� he said. The most recent entry took them four to five hours to build, Heiser remembered. “We just used a hot glue gun and stuck them together, they dried pretty quickly.�

Justin Heiser of Courtland works on his part of building a model of the Alpengeist rollercoaster made out of the pretzels from Snyder’s of Hanover. James Williams, his friend, also worked with him on the project. The recent contest was held at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg. This year’s event was the third try, but not a charm for the boys, both rising sophomores at Southampton High School. The winner was defending champion Maggie Woodward of Virginia. “They timed us and gave us three hours. We did not finish. It was really tough, there were so many twists,� said Heiser. There was another factor against them. “Being so humid, the glue was not drying,� said Williams. “And being that it was a hanging coaster, the tracks would fall off the

supports.� Neither of the boys, both 15, are completely discouraged. “We’re looking forward to next year,� Heiser said. “We’ll probably have to build a different coaster in the park.� “It was a real fun experience,� Williams concluded. Justin is the son of Megan and Michael Steven Heiser, and his sisters are Madison and Jessica. James is the son of Kim and Jim Williams, and his siblings are Josh and Sarah.

FRANKLIN—Affectionate, loving, obedient and wonderful aren’t just pretty words for a Franklin woman who says her pit bull challenges stereotypes about the breed. Carol Drewry doesn’t go along with the popular fear that all pit bulls are inherently dangerous. She’s found it’s a matter of how this breed of dog is raised, and Chunk is her personal proof. The confidence in and the success of his training have led Drewry to have Chunk certified as a Therapy Dog. Just this past week, she took him to a couple of nursing homes to visit residents. That’s just part of her plan for she and the dog. “I want to give back to the community I live in,â€? said Drewry, adding she also intends for the two of them to visit hospices and people who’ve been in traumas. There’s also an intention of having him join a reading program such as Tailwag Tutors. This is when children can read to the animals. The idea is that dogs never correct them and so the children grow in their reading skills. “My goal is to reach as many people as possible,â€? Drewry said.

Our position on local issues

Don’t get burned this season Any hope of a cooler summer has been quickly burned and melted away this week. Based on the soggy spring and early weeks of summer, we were thinking that maybe, just maybe, life this season wouldn’t become miserable. We live in hope...and heat. Meanwhile, with approximately eight more weeks left of summer, the only thing to be done is to find ways to stay comfortable. These reminders always bear repeating: • Stay indoors as often as you can when temperatures are especially high. • Whether outdoors or inside, drink plenty of water – not sodas or juices – to replenish what’s lost from sweating. • Use sun block regularly when working or playing outside. Don’t forget to wear hats

and sunglasses as added protection. • Do not. Do not. Do not leave children, the elderly or pets inside cars while you shop, even for a few minutes. Ventilating windows are not enough to keep them cool, and temperatures can quickly become hotter inside than out. • Check frequently on your elderly relatives, parents or neighbors. Also, when possible, donate fans or air conditioners. The older a person gets, staying cool becomes more of a challenge. • Did we already mention drinking water? Summer can be a great time for fun, so following these guidelines can keep you enjoying the season. Be cool.

Remembering the Obicis and the Suffolk Peanut Fest You don’t have to be a “nut” to enjoy Suffolk. I covered the area for about 25 years, commuting from my North Carolina home, an easy drive along Route 32. I would have enjoyed being a resident but, at that time, my trio of kiddies wanted to stay with friends and family. Also, my wife was born and raised in Hertford, and it would have taken a stick or two of TNT to get her to live anywhere else. Suffolk was my second home. For about 10 years, I narrated the annual parade, sounding, at times, like the poor man’s Don Rickles, making minor semi-snide remarks, but only to those I knew would not sue. I did a play or two at the old King’s Fork Elementary School, and had a great time playing Neil Simon’s slob in “The Odd Couple” which, by the way, was held over for an extra performance. Recently, I called someone I knew many, many moons ago and tried to explain who I was until, finally, Edison’s invention shone above her well coiffed head: “I remember. You were Mr. Obici.” For several years, whenever the occasion arose, I portrayed Amadeo Obici, wandering about and answering questions about the gentleman, acting like I knew what I was talking about. I will say that in my necessary research I learned to like and respect the Planters founder. Nowadays, the great American success story is about someone taking over from Daddy. Not so with Mr. O. His success story was really Americana — the bootstrap variety. Anyone who has been in Suffolk for very long knows the story of the immigrant who came to the U.S., unable to speak English, but able to use his common sense and business sense to build the world-famous nut empire. One thing you may not know is that he invented a method of skinning and blanching peanuts, “so the roasted goobers came out clean,” according to Wikipedia. And, of course, to honor the city, and his wife, he formed a corporation that became the Louise Obici Memorial Hospital. I had different Mrs. Obici’s each year. The only one I remember was an Indian lady (the country, not the tribal) named Minnie and, as in real life, she was taller than her abbreviated husband. The honorable goober is celebrated with the annual Suffolk Peanut Fest. The 36th such event will take place Oct. 10-13 and, as al-

ways, there is some very good entertainment. This year’s headliners will be Sawyer Brown, proud owners of several gold and platinum albums. Their hits include “Some Girls Do,” “Step That Step” and my personal favorite, “The Dirt Road.” The other name entertainer is Tate Stevens, winner of the second season of “The X Factor,” so you know he is no small potato. As we get closer to the fest date, we will tell you much more about those folks. The son of a close friend of mine has written the next Hallmark Hall of Fame play, which will be aired Aug. 9. It has to do with teachers. Watch for the name, Todd Mattox. There’s no musical violence, which is to say, no sax or violince. In a future column I will tell you about his dad, Gregory Walcott who, among other things, was one of the stars of the original, “87th Precinct,” and he was the bad guy in four Clint Eastwood westerns. His dubious claim to fame was starring in the movie dubbed by most critics as, “the worst film ever made,” a gem called, “Plan Nine From Outer Space.” I will also tell you about a good friend who taught Marilyn Monroe how to sing in the movies. Lots of other stuff so, stay tuned. ---Finally, I hope you and yours are enjoying the good ol’ summertime with its weather alternating between wet and blast furnace. I lived in Nome, Alaska, a few years and, recently, temperatures there went up to the 80s. I don’t think anyone there owns a pair of shorts, or even a bikini. That kind of temp is unheard of. Usually, when you go to the beach there, on the Bering Sea, you wear a parka. During a 60-year career spanning newspapers, radio and television, Frank Roberts has been there and done that. Today, he’s doing it in retirement from North Carolina, but he continues to keep an eye set on Suffolk and an ear cocked on country music. Email him at froberts73@embarqmail.com.

YOUR TURN

Uptown Suffolk It’s after peanut-picking time; livestock has been turned into temporary pastures and a general sigh of relief settles over our household. Days are cooler and shorter; most leaves remain as colorful piles in our yard. My family is not much for lawn tidiness. The Sears Christmas catalog has arrived and my siblings and I have overlaid eyeball prints on most pages. The candies and goodies section has more children’s eyeball prints than any other. It’s approaching Thanksgiving season and something of a tradition is to buy coconut and sweet potato pies from a bakery in Suffolk. Somehow those two delicacies are not a family specialty, or it’s just nice to have someone else’s pies for the rapidly approaching Thanksgiving. Someone has placed an order and someone drives over to pick up the pies a few days before the holiday. The bakery is right on US58, just inside the city, and sometimes, on outings that take us through Suffolk, we stop and buy doughnuts. I recognize the large church almost across the street from the storefront. The sugary sweet, somewhat greasy rings of cooked dough are a real treat for me and my siblings. Sticky fingers are licked without embarrassment; we don’t talk much when doughnuts are available. Passing through Suffolk, we always have our eyes peeled in anticipation of a possible stop. We also make trips for shopping. There’s a Montgomery Ward store in Suffolk; we have one of their catalogs at our house. They have everything: clothes, furniture, automobile repair parts, farming supplies, washers, household furnishings, lamps, cloth, curtains—everything. Their catalogs come in two editions: spring and summer and fall and winter. I don’t know who determines what goes where; some items are available year round. Every household that I know about has a Sears Roebuck and a Montgomery Ward catalog. All the products can be mailed or shipped directly to your house. We mail order things from catalogs frequently. There are several different clothing stores in Suffolk. When we go to shop, we park behind the police station, a big ol’ red brick building, on Main Street. We turn down the alleyway beside the building and park in any available space. The parking area is not paved or marked, but there’s usually enough space for everybody. There’s a hotel in Suffolk. We have the Stonewall Hotel in Franklin; it’s a landmark there on Main Street, but the hotel in Suffolk is several stories tall, and has a coffee shop entrance from the street. That seems like an open invitation to everyone to come in, that it’s not just for hotel residents. There are several restaurants in downtown Suffolk. It must be nice to have such a selection to choose from. In summer, a local farmer opens a small roadside fruit stand between Holland and Suffolk. Some of his peaches usually find their way to our table. It’s normally a small quantity, enough for eating fresh or making ice cream, just enough to whet but not overwhelm our appetite. They arrive at our house with a little fanfare and lip lickin’. Every trip to, through, or from Suffolk takes us by Bethlehem Christian Church. It’s on the Holland Road, just outside the city limits. Dr. Brittle is the preacher here. “Pappy,” as he is affectionately called, used to be our preacher at Joyner’s church. I guess preachers “feel the call” to move on to other churches at some point. Dr. Brittle is a much-loved person to our family. He christened, married and buried many people that we know and love. He shared many meals at our house; he is considered family by most in our neighborhood. When he shepherded our church, he planted, tended and shared a vegetable garden. He made hospital calls regularly. We sometimes stop and say “hello” if he’s at the church; more often than not, he’s somewhere else. Probably tending his current flock. My parents invariably comment about him and his ways every time we pass the church. My brother’s wife is from Suffolk. We’ve visited her mother and father on a few occasions, but not on a regular basis. Her family operates a furniture company of some description, but we’ve never been to the business. Our visits are the Sunday afternoon kind—sit around and talk while kids play in the yard. Usually there’s a special invitation involved, not just the “drop in” kind. Our visits seem to be a little more formal than I’m used to. Suffolk is a big city to me; it has a lot more of what I don’t know about. I will spend a lifetime solving some of the mysteries.

Approximately 300 people attended the Carrsville Community Day.

28TH Carrsville Community Day By Merle Monahan Contributing Writer merlemonah@aol.com

CARRSVILLE – Nearly 300 descendants and friends of Lucy Ann Hill and William Robert Maddrey attended Carrsville Community Day on the Fourth of July weekend at Knight’s Park. Celebrating “The Family,” the 28th Community Day was co-sponsored this year by the Hill-Maddrey Family Reunion. Members of this family are the founders of the celebration. “It’s always a success,” said Curtis Rawlings, whose idea it was to have the annual event. “I used to come down from my home in Maryland every year to visit the relatives,” he said. “Then I thought how much easier it would be for all of us if we were all in one place.” Rawlings discussed his idea with a few other members of the family and Carrsville Community Day was born. Always held at Knight Park in

Carrsville, the first event was held in 1985. The oldest member attending this year was Bertha Maddrey Knight, 91, who “is always there,” she said. Starting at noon, there was a short program prior to lunch. A synopsis of the occasion was presented by Dr. Woodrow Knight, another member of the family. Planned by a Community Day committee, the event offered interests for all age groups. There were activities for children as well as adults, from kick-ball and a bounce House, to line dancing. And the meal, cooked and served by members of the family, offered everything from fried chicken, fish and hot dogs, to home cooked vegetables and desserts. Added attractions for the program this year were remarks by Rex Alphin, Carrsville representative on the Isle of Wight Board of Supervisors and a visit by Kerry Holmes, candidate for the Virginia State Senate 14th District.

ASK ABBIE By Abbie Long I am a new and completely stressed out full-time caregiver for my mother. Many of my family members are constantly criticizing how I do things even though they aren’t willing to share the responsibility. I’m having a hard time balancing my mother’s needs with those of my husband and children. I also worry constantly about my finances since I can’t work. You mentioned being a caregiver for one of your family members in one of your columns so I wanted to know if you had any suggestions for me. Most days I feel like I’m going to lose it. What do toilet paper, a zipper, a mobile phone and an automobile have in common? Humans can make it without them, but

with the utilization of each of their daily tasks become easier and their lives more efficient. What do non-judgmental support, realistic expectations, “Me” time, and strong faith have in common? Caregivers can make it without them, but with the utilization of each their daily tasks become easier and their lives more efficient. Each of these suggestions, when implemented successfully, will improve your on-the-job and at-home efficiency by reducing your overall frustration and anxiety. You will feel less like you are going to lose it, and more like each trial you encounter is a privilege to receive rather than a detriment to survive. Surround yourself with non-judgmental support and distance yourself from those who heighten your defenses or make you question yourself. Those who encourage you will inherently boost your efficiency while those who try and hold you back will tend to deplete your resources. Be willing to share your emotional and phys-

Urgent Care Center

ical burdens with others by joining a support group, by expressing how you feel to those who care and want to listen, and by accepting offers of physical help such as having someone sit with your mother for an hour. Remind yourself your situation is temporary and that one day you will be able to return the favors. Set realistic expectations for yourself and for others to keep feelings of disappointment and frustration from making you less efficient. Realize if someone doesn’t want to be happy you can’t make him that way. Expect criticism from those who feel bad about themselves; don’t take it personally. Make an honest assessment of your own limitations and set small attainable goals. Beware of setting any goal in which your ability to accomplish it is not certain for such goals often lead to unnecessary anxiety. Accept the fact you can do anything but not everything. Take “Me” time. This is the time when your well-being takes priority over that of others. Its

purpose is to renew and protect your own mental, physical, and emotional strength. If you neglect any one part of yourself you will soon find yourself having to neglect those who have been entrusted to your care. Get your sleep. Not only does a lack of sleep make you grumpy but according to WebMD it also causes accidents, dumbs you down, can lead to serious disease such as heart disease and high blood pressure, causes depression, ages your skin, makes you forgetful, and can make you gain weight. To include mental and spiritual distractions in your “Me” time, consider playing an instrument, writing, crafting and meditating. Never forget to take at least three deep breaths a day. Finally, practice strong faith. When I operate in my faith I am met with consistent peace, total freedom from worry and anxiety, unwavering strength, and maximum efficiency. When I neglect to operate in my faith I am faced with feelings of negativity, frustration, and doubt. It remains up to me to stay on constant alert

for any sneak attack initiated by the enemy in the form of a destructive thought. When I sense its presence, and choose to call upon my faith, I thwart its threat. If I choose to call upon myself, instead of my faith, I encounter a lengthy campaign. Throughout the many emotional and physical demands placed upon you as a caregiver and regardless of the often-absent signs of appreciation for your effort, never underestimate the strength and power of your attitude. It has enough force to cause a major impact not only on your health and well-being but also on that of your mom, family, and friends. Dedicate yourself to being the best you can be and to doing the best you can do. This way you will be able to enter your mother’s room, whether occupied or vacant, with a strength and confidence that only freedom from regret can provide.

HEADLINE: Liquor still seized FROM PAGE A1 served at a Newsoms residence in the 25000 block of Greenbriar Drive, which Thorpe’s father owns, for marijuana paraphernalia including potted plants. The estimated street value of the items was $297,000. The investigation got started back in May, when the Southampton County

Sheriff ’s Office was tipped off and used that information to make some buys with a confidential source, said Maj. Gene Drewery, department spokesman. Rick Francis, clerk of court, said that normally there are several things to help a judge decide whether or not to allow bail. These include, but are not limited to, the presence or

use of firearms and their potential consequence, having a past record, flight risk, the severity of the charges, and if someone had been hurt. Having a surety bond, said a member of Francis’s office, means the suspects needed a professional bondsmen. Managing editor Cain Madden contributed to this story.

LUMBER: State hopes to return relics to Southampton County FROM PAGE A1 where the other was.� State and Tidewater region Archeologist Mike Barber said based on seeing pictures of the two bowls, that they seem to date from the late woodland period, which was 1000 AD to 1650 AD. “It is incredible that they were found,� Barber said. “The concept that they were recovered from the river, the odds of that are extremely small. “Dated at the latest time during this period, 1650, that was 300 or more years that they have been in river, jostling around and they’re still whole? That’s

not going to happen very often.� Barber said the two bowls seem to be of Algonquian origins. The Algonquian people occupied the coastal plains of Virginia. Barber said a unique thing about Southampton County is that the Algonquian

people would have interfaced with the Iroquois people, and that the region was influenced by both tribes, their trading and battles. The two bowls are being donated to the Department of Historic Resources. Barber said he hopes to return the bowls to Southampton County to be displayed by a local museum. “These are probably impressive enough, that someone would like to have them to demonstrate items made by local Virginia Indians,� Barber said. Widmeyer said he was ready for the state to pick the items up, so he did not risk breaking them. He did, however, hope that the items would one day be returned to Southampton County, and Collins

agreed. “I hope that they can come back to the county where people can really get a chance to enjoy them,� Collins said. As far as diving itself, Widmeyer said he loved it. “I feel like it is the closest thing I can do to walking on the moon,� he said. “You are going places where no one has been.� The exact location of the item is being held by request of the Virginia Department of Historic Resources. Barber said his concern is that people will go looking for more items and inadvertently destroy them. “Archeological resources are extremely fragile, and once they are gone, they are gone forever,� Barber said.

FROM PAGE A1 dog, she didn’t buy him right away. But there was just something about Chunk. “I was drawn to him right away,� she said. “I can’t explain it.� Obviously, he found a home with her. “I think he’s approximately 2 years old,� she said. “He stays close by my side.� This wasn’t Drewry’s first time dealing with dogs. She said she used to breed akitas and shiba inus. “Animals have always been my deal,� Drewry said. “I’ve learned so much about the breed. Thousands are put to sleep just because they’re pit bulls. It’s very, very sad.� She added that she would never leave a dog along with any child. “It’s just common sense. I blame people for not being vigilant,� Drewry said about owners whose dogs – not just pit bulls – have attacked people. To get Chunk to where he is now, required some special training. That’s where Patty Allen and Pawsitive Attitudes in Carrollton came in. “I’ve loved dogs my whole life,� said Allen. “I had a vision to help as many dogs and people as I can.� Until recently, she’s had four dogs, one recently was quite old and had to be put to sleep. Another has retired from service. “Working with the two others spiraled me tin getting involved and accepted as an evaluator. The rest is history,� said Allen, who added she’s tested over 200 dogs and certified close to 170 as Therapy Dogs. She’s found that many people think such animals have to be pure bred. Mutts, or as Allen likes to

Up Close & Personal Superintendent follows passion of helping children BY MERLE MONAHAN/CONTRIBUTING WRITER merlemonah@aol.com

FRANKLIN – Dr. Michelle Belle, superintendent of Franklin Public Schools, said she always wanted to be an undertaker. “That’s true,” she said. “I don’t know where the idea came from, but I can remember thinking when I was a little girl that this would be something I’d like to do. Maybe it’s because I like helping others, especially people who need help, and this would be a time when families who’d lost a loved one would need consoling. “Anyway, this was on my mind a lot and I fully expected to become an undertaker when I graduated from high school.” In 1994, Belle began to think about her other passion, teaching children, and began preparing for a future in this field. “I was married and had children of my own, but I entered college anyway. Actually, my children and I were all in school at the same time,” she said. Belle, who accepted the position of division superintendent of Franklin Public Schools in 2009, is, however, where she wants to be now. “My real passion is helping children,” she said, adding that she has worked in this field for several years and feels that here she has the chance to make a difference. Born in Montclair, N.J., and raised in Plainfield, N.J., Belle earned her bachelor’s in business administration at Seton Hall University. She received her master’s in education at Virginia State

University and an educational leadership degree at Longwood University. She earned her doctoral degree in administrative supervision at Virginia State. The dedicated educator started her career in Cumberland County, Va., where she first became a high school teacher. She was later promoted to assistant principal, then principal, and finally assistant supervisor of human resources before coming to Franklin. Her four years here have been rewarding. “Not only do we have a good school system, but the entire city is great. The people are friendly and courteous. I really love working here,” said Belle. She admitted there are challenges in the school system, however. “We have so many wonderful people in the system working so hard, but we have not yet gotten the results we want,” she said. “We want the Franklin School System to be at the top, as it should be.” “We want our graduates to be able to say they came from a top-rated school,” Belle went on, “One well known for its high standards and excellence in education.” “There are some real hurdles out there and our graduates need to be prepared,” she added. Her duties require her to visit the schools and she does periodically, but Belle said she spends much of her time at meetings, some as far away as Norfolk and Williamsburg.

MERLE MONAHAN|TIDEWATER NEWS

Dr. Michelle R. Belle, superintendent of Franklin Public Schools, says she’s dedicated to helping children. “Meetings are necessary, of course, but they do take up a lot of time,” she said. On the other hand, Belle relishes the time she gets to spend at her office, where she gets to work with her staff and meet with visitors. “I have a wonderful staff,” she said. “They do so much for me.” In talking about herself, Belle considers herself a fair person, she says, although she does not

hesitate to say what she thinks. “I am always the same. I am consistent and I am frank. I like to discuss issues openly so there will be no miscommunication. “On the other hand, I am a great listener. There is always another side to an issue.” NAME: Dr. Michelle R. Belle WHAT BROUGHT YOU TO THIS AREA: A school superintendent vacancy, with the opportu-

Here’s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
