Feasenmyer wins commissioner race BY F.M.WIGGINS STAFF WRITER

COLONIAL HEIGHTS — Voters headed to the polls Tuesday to locally select a new Commissioner of the Revenue. Other constitutional officers, including Treasurer Joy Moore, Sheriff Todd B. Wilson and Commonwealth’s Attorney William “Bill” Bray, were up for reelection unopposed. W i l l i a m FEASENMYER

“Bill” Feasenmyer came out the winner of the only contested local race with 2,098 votes, 43.3 percent of votes cast in the Commissioner of the Revenue’s race. “The results are great, the hard work paid off. Family, friends, strangers all supported me,” Feasenmyer said. “This was the most humbling experience I’ve had.” Feasenmyer said he had one agenda: to run his race the way he wanted to do it. He walked every street in the city. Family and friends helped him reach every door. “I really do think that was the

difference,” he said. Feasenmyer attributed the victory to a matter of hard work. “I appreciate the results, I don’t think it was a popularity contest. I think the residents looked at each individual’s experience and standing in the community and made their choice,” Feasenmyer said. “I won’t let the citizens down.” Scott Daniel went to the Colonial Heights Community Center to cast his ballot around 12:45 p.m. Tuesday. “I’m really more interested in Please see ELECTION, Page 3

Police train to deal with sufferers of mental illnesses

A

s the most recent mass shootings in America show us, mental health issues can sometimes lead to deadly violence. But even in a situation that isn’t a mass shooting, police often have to deal with individuals with mental illnesses. And often those situations may come in a crisis situation. Police need to know how to deal with people with mental illnesses in order to resolve situations as peacefully as possible. That’s why a nearly $300,000 grant from the Virginia Attorney General’s Office is particularly welcome. The $289,860 grant, given to the Petersburg Police Department, will allow law enforcement officers to be trained throughout the region. They will learn how to respond to crisis situations involving people with mental illnesses. Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli awarded a total of $4.2 million in grants to 21 law enforcement agencies across the state in October. The training will also help first responders understand the circumstances surrounding mentally ill offenders. Law enforcement, other first responders, and corrections personnel routinely interact with people with mental illnesses, according to the attorney general’s office. The money awarded to the Petersburg Police Department will increase the training of the South-Central Crisis Intervention Team by 100 percent. The training will serve Colonial Heights, Dinwiddie County, Emporia, Greensville, Hopewell, Petersburg, Prince George County, Surry County and Sussex County. The South-Central CIT will partner with the Crater Criminal Justice Training Academy to conduct a 40-hour basic CIT classes for law enforcement, an 8-hour CIT dispatcher classes, an 8-hour Pre-CIT basic classes for jailors and train the trainer classes. The funding will add an additional 400 trained CIT first responders and will also include equipment, security costs for a crisis assessment center at John Randolph Medical Center, travel expenses, and supplies. The need for such training is obvious. Currently, more than 25 percent of the statewide jail population has been diagnosed with mental health issues and more than 12 percent were diagnosed with serious mental illnesses, according to the Virginia Attorney General’s Office. CIT training increases public safety through better identification of, intervention with, and access to services for individuals with mental illness; reduces injuries to law enforcement when dealing with these citizens and helps them deescalate potentially volatile situations. And it teaches law enforcement where they can refer people for mental health services in lieu of incarceration, when appropriate. The grant money doesn’t come from taxpayers, but from criminals. In 2012, the attorney general’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit was the lead investigator in the second largest Medicaid fraud settlement in U.S. history. On top of the restitution to the state’s Medicaid program, the office earned $115 million in asset forfeiture funds in the case. Training first-responders to deal with people with mental illnesses is a wise use of money — especially when the money comes from criminals.

Two‘bridges’are saved between communities

T

he bus route from Petersburg to Southpark Mall has been saved. Petersburg officials had considered killing the popular route after Colonial Heights refused to contribute to maintain the connection. However, Petersburg City Council approved changes to the city’s transit system in October that keeps a connection between the city and the popular shopping area. City Council also approved keeping a bus route to Virginia State University, which is also a vital link for the city. In order to keep the links to the mall and the university, bus fares are increasing across the board for those who use the Petersburg Area Transit system. But the two routes will be running at a loss, which means an increase in all fares was needed to make up the revenue. The current fare of $1.50 is increasing to $1.75. Seniors will still pay half price and all-day passes are still available. Other changes eliminate service to Pocahontas Island, Petersburg High School and Vernon Johns Junior High School. All the changes to the transit system were unanimously approved by Petersburg City Council. Council members deserve credit for standing up and not cutting vital links between city residents and two key institutions. Residents attend Virginia State University and work there. They also shop at the mall and work there. Both routes are critical for Petersburg residents and benefit the retail businesses of Colonial Heights. Yet Colonial Heights was not interested in maintaining the “bridge” as that city has not expressed any interest in funding the route. Despite inquiries by Petersburg, Colonial Heights officials turned a deaf hear to a request for some funding for the mall route. We understand the Colonial Heights viewpoint that its citizens probably don’t use the bus route. But that bus route provides an economic benefit to Colonial Heights — and that is worth some amount of financial support for it. Colonial Heights officials should have done more than ignore the situation. But thankfully, Petersburg officials stepped up and decided to keep the bus routes running and thereby preserving two vital “bridges” between the communities.

YOUR OPINIONS Sleep and trains in Hopewell

Obamacare power grab emerges

We invite your commentary

To the Editor: My good friend Craig Gilkison made very good points on the problems of living near train tracks, in his Oct. 13, 2013 letter to the editor. I must take issue with him though when he says that locomotive horns are made for use in farm and open country “like Nebraska or Kansas, not Hopewell, Va.” As a grandson of a 35-year locomotive engineer on the Virginian Railway who rode sometimes in the cab, I know of what I speak from the events recounted to me by him and what I saw. Locomotive horns are used for only one reason — as a safety warning. One long blast to indicate coming to a stop, two long blasts to indicate getting under way, and one long-one short-one long to indicate crossing a road, among many others. It is likely all three that Gilkison hears in Hopewell. Where cities, such as Midland, Texas, have instituted “no horn” prohibitions, chaos and death have followed. Railroads, unlike most people, are a 24/7 operation; they are not run like hotels (as CP Railway CEO Hunter Harrison recently told the city of Calgary, Alberta, when they told him to cut off idling trains and horns between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. to which his additional reply was that he would then be closing the Calgary CP yard and moving its 500 employees to other Canadian cities as result). That said, though NS would never cease its safety one and two blast warnings, I’m sure they would consider ceasing the road crossing horns if the city of Hopewell agreed to compensate vehicle victims at railroad crossings instead of anyone litigating against the railroad.

chemical weapons provided by Syria and working on destroying the known chemical stockpiles and equipment. However, American and Middle East officials said Syria’s elite Unit 450, which runs Assad’s chemical weapons program, scattered the weapons across Syria and into Iraq. A Lebanese newspaper reported 20 trucks loaded with equipment and chemical weapons were driven across the border into Iraq on September 12 to 13, 2013. The trucks were not inspected by the border guards. Some of these chemical weapons going to Iraq could be weapons that were moved from Iraq into Syria prior to the Iraqi War. Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, who formerly headed the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency, stated in October 2003 “satellite imagery showed a heavy flow of truck traffic from Iraq into Syria just before the American invasion in March 2003. In January 2006 General Geoges Sada, an Iraqi general under Saddam Hussein, claimed Iraq moved WMDs into Syria before the war, which were loaded on civilian aircraft and multiple truck convoys. Iraq and Syria have been playing a WMD swap game for many years, which should be thoroughly investigated and ended with the destruction of these weapons. Donald A. Moskowitz Londonderry, N.H.

To the Editor: I recently attended a meeting at the state capital where a commission was hearing views from the public on the topic of Medicaid expansion. Here, the real beneficiaries of the Obamacare power grab emerged. Special interests from across the state bellied up to the trough for snoutfuls of public largess, to extoll the “virtues” of enlarging an immoral and bankrupt system. Grass roots opposition was also present. Hospital networks, insurers like Anthem, Kaiser and Aetna joined leftist organizations and pastors of homosexual churches in an unholy alliance. Their one common objective: get at the new cash that, potentially, would be confiscated from working Americans. Vladimir Lenin was partially correct when he said, “Capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them.” Greed is rarely overcome by principles, even when the windfall may be short lived or the moral cost dear. Obamacare is collectivism, however, it more resembles the fascist variety. It was Sen. Max Baucus who gave effusive credit to Liz Fowler, the writer of the 87-page white paper which became the foundation for Obamacare. In customary revolving door fashion, Fowler also worked as the vice president of public policy for the largest health insurer, Wellpoint. Imagine persuading the government to force people to buy your product! That’s what $500 million in industry contributions can do. Big pharma, that runs the FDA, is also cozy with the arrangement. They intend to dictate what drugs you will use and which alternatives will be denied. Your health freedom will be lost in favor of “benevolent” corporations that will help determine vaccine policies, how care is rationed and what homes will be “inspected” to keep children safe (Fox News - Stuart Varney). Whether it’s called corporate communism or fascism, it was wrong under Bush and it is still wrong under Obama. Conclusion: Let us nullify the Affordable Care Act in its entirety.

Outside, Anna Harris was decked out in red, white and blue to support Feasenmyer’s bid for Commissioner of the Revenue. Harris said they had parked the “Feasenmobile,” a decorated pick-up truck, at the Colonial Heights Recreation Center polling place. Following the unofficial results from the election, Gayle Braswell, who received 1,517 votes, 31.34 percent of the vote in the Colonial Heights Commissioner of the Revenue race, said she wasn’t sure if she would run again. The race that concluded with Tuesday’s election was Braswell’s third attempt to gain the office. “If the citizens don’t want someone in there with experience, they don’t want me. I don’t understand why they

don’t want someone in there who has experience,” Braswell said. She said it was refreshing that the campaign refrained from mudslinging. “I felt like I was the best,” she added. Braswell said there was a lot of positivity at the polls Tuesday. Tammy Foster Ferguson, the third candidate in the Commissioner of the Revenue race, also felt there was positivity at the polls. “Felt positive, up until I heard the news. I got a lot of positive feelings out at the polls today,” Ferguson said. Ferguson received 25.06 percent of the vote, with 1,213 ballots cast in her favor. The campaign was Ferguson’s first foray into politics. “I’m proud that I ran a clean campaign,” she said. • F.M. Wiggins may be reached at 7323456, ext. 3254 or fwiggins@progressindex.com.

Urban Wildlife Habitat at CHMS

FROM STAFF REPORTS

COLONIAL HEIGHTS — Students swarmed Colonial Heights Middle School to help Mother Nature earlier this month. “We are establishing a schoolyard habitat,” explained Science teacher LuAnn Collier. The James River Association selected the school for a grant from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Dozens of middle and high school students donned gloves and grabbed tools, stirring up mud, clay and rocks to plant a variety of shrubs and plants designed to attract helpful insects. “Parents and volunteers helped us lay the foundation last week. The students have come to put these beautiful shrubs in the ground,” Collier said Tuesday, Oct 15. “We also have some picnic tables coming.” Collier said it will be “a great educational spot” for students, staff and faculty. “When we have teacher work days, we’re going to be out here finding our happy place,” she said.

William Norbert Frenzel, 88, of Colonial Heights, passed away on Wednesday, Oct. 30, 2013, at Retreat Doctors’ Hospital in Richmond. A native of Berga, Germany, he was the son of the late Wilhelm and Elly Krumbholz Frenzel. Mr. Frenzel is survived by his loving wife, Gerda Frenzel; two daughters, Jane F. Kenney and husband, Timothy, Rosemarie E. Richey and husband, Robert; grandchildren, Eric Richey and wife, Heather, Jessica Prout and husband, Derek, Sean Kenney and Steven Kenney; great-grandchildren, Ethan Richey and Abigail Prout; numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. A memorial service was held on Monday, Nov. 4, 2013, in the Colonial Heights Chapel of the E. Alvin Small Funeral Homes and Crematory, 2033 Boulevard, with the Rev. Richard Finck officiating. Interment will be private. Memorial donations may be made to the Hospice of Virginia, 1700 Bayberry Court, Suite 300, Richmond, VA 23226. Condolences may be registered at www.ealvinsmall. com.

Abby Lynch helps zombie-cowboy Kaine Maitland play a game at the “Halloween in the Park” event held at Flora M. Hill Park in Colonial Heights Halloween night. Warm weather, free candy and activities drew a big crowd of trick-or-treaters to the park Oct. 31. FROM STAFF REPORTS

COLONIAL HEIGHTS — The city Sheriff’s Department is retiring from heading the annual Halloween in the Park, an event that brings a couple thousand costumed trick-ortreaters to Flora M. Hill Park every Halloween. The 13-year-old event is organized by the Sheriff ’s Department, with help from the Sons of the American Legion and the Recreation and Parks Department. Next year, the event will be headed by the Recreation and Parks Department. Other organizations will still continue to assist. Sheriff Todd Wilson said that he and his office were overwhelmed, despite help from volunteers and other organizations.

“It’s a lot for a small office to prepare for and manage. We couldn’t do it without the volunteers,” he said. He said that over the years the event has grown from being attended by about 45 residents, to a couple thousand. Wilson hand-makes many of the carnival-style games himself. He adds new ones to the collection every year due to the weather and general wear. He said that his office would still help with the event, just not in a leadership role. George Dimerack, a member of Sons of the American Legion, said that organizers met three months in advance to plan the event. “It’s not an overnight thing,” he said. But Colonial Heights residents

seemed to appreciate the effort to make Halloween in the Park a fun and safe event. Many parents said that they flock to the park every year because it’s a safer alternative to trick-or-treating. Lee Avenue resident Jessica Little takes her family to the event every year. “The sidewalks get crowded and it’s dark, so it’s hard to keep up with five kids trick-or-treating,” she said. Those who came to the park instead of trick-or-treating enjoyed a bounce house, haunted house, carnival games and a costume contest. Of course, there was candy. The kids got a scoop of candy from a coffin and received candy for playing the games, and more for winning them.
