Northampton Grades Options for New Middle School By Ron West In an effort to re-establish a standalone middle school in Northampton County, the Board of Supervisors and School Board, along with staff members, gathered Monday to examine their options. They discussed repurposing the school administration building as a middle school, refurbishing the former middle school and re-opening it, and building a new facility. A walk-through of the school administration building, itself a former elementary school that was closed when Occohannock and Kiptopeke elementary schools opened 20 years ago, revealed that it would need a number of additions to make it usable as a middle school. While the dozen rooms could be refurbished as classrooms and might handle students in Grades 7 and 8, space would be needed for a cafeteria, library, gym, and elective courses. While there is ample property to build an addition or install portable units, the cost to do so is more than the county has in its coffers. The group next visited the former middle school and concluded that there are a number of problems there that would need to be addressed. The heating and AC system, plumbing, wiring and cafeteria would need to be upgraded. Portions of the structure are used by the County Extension Service and Parks and Recreation Department. The former appointed School Board proposed to build a new middle/high school campus in Eastville to replace both schools. Cost estimates for such a facility top off at $35 million.

It is expected that the county’s borrowing power won’t be sufficient to consider the amount needed for a new middle school for at least another five years. Short of conducting a referendum on a tax increase to fund a new school, there are few, if any, options to resolve the funding problem. County Administrator Katie Nunez suggested that the School Board look into the possibility of constructing a new middle school, with a new high school added later. Even then, the county would be far short of the needed funding for several years. School Board member Shannon Dunham, a graduate of Northampton High School, noted concerns over structural issues with the high school, which has seen a number of repairs in recent years. School Board member Randy Parks spoke of the need to provide a true middle-school setting for students in Grades 6 through 8. He noted that the current “school within a school” concept at the high school is not acceptable and the county owes it to students to provide a separate facility. “The middle-school kids have been short changed for years,” Parks said. Board of Supervisors Chairman Larry LeMond suggested that the School Board consider relocating its offices to the rear portion of the former middle school and then selling the school administration building to help procure funds for a new middle school. Following Monday’s site visits and discussions, no decision was made on the best means to provide Northampton a middle school.

Have We Lost Our Spring?

For the fourth time in as many weeks, a late winter snowfall promised to be the last of the season. While weathercasters predicted that the weekend would be more springlike — as they correctly had forecast in preceding weeks — only time will tell whether the middle of next week will bring what its predecessors have delivered: more snow.

Planning Commission Has 100 Days To Review Zoning Odinance By Ron West The Northampton County Board of Supervisors conducted a joint session with the county Planning Commission regarding the proposed Zoning Ordinance and Comprehensive Plan. The Planning Commission has been reviewing and rewriting the county’s Comprehensive Plan since 2010. The present timeline calls for it to be completed and sent to a public hearing at the end of the year. Some commissioners have said paid consultants are needed if they are to complete the project, which is more extensive than they can handle. Commission Chairman Dixon Leatherbury said one consulting company might be available for about $15,000, which would be used only to determine which parts of the proposed Zoning Ordinance are in line with the Comprehensive Plan. County Administrator Katie Nunez remarked that by law, the commissioners had only a 100-day window to review the Zoning Ordinance and submit a recommendation on it to the Board

of Supervisors, and that period would expire in May. Supervisor Larry Trala said he does not support hiring an outside consultant when there are qualified county residents who could assist the commissioners. A survey of the Board of Supervisors determined that there was not a consensus of opinion on hiring a consultant. Commissioner Roberta Kellam raised the issue of affordable housing and the need for viable roads for some residents seeking loans to update their homes. She noted that there are an estimated 100 homes in the county without indoor plumbing. Nunez explained that the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) works from a “Six-Year Plan” with regards to road construction. Supervisor Rick Hubbard noted that the state usually provides approximately $40,000 per year for the Six-Year Plan, and as such, it takes several years to acquire enough funding to do any roadway con-

struction or reconstruction. The current priority for road construction is in the Cape Charles area. The issue of withdrawing the seaside from the regulations of the Chesapeake Bay Preservation Act (CBPA) was raised by Supervisor Granville Hogg. Planning Commission Chairman Dixon Leatherbury suggested that the potential for pollution of seaside waters from the removal of the area from the CBPA needs to be reviewed by the scientific community. ………………………………… The Board of Supervisors then conducted a joint session with the Public Service Authority (PSA) to ascertain the status of the proposed wastewater systems for the county. PSA Chairman J.T. Holland recommended that the supervisors appoint a subcommittee from the two panels as well as representatives from Cape Charles to establish rates that might be charged for pumping wastewater to the Cape Charles wastewater facility. Board Chairman Larry LeMond noted

that Cape Charles has yet to assure that it would be willing to accept the county wastewater or, if it does, what the fee might be. The board appointed Supervisors Hogg and Rick Hubbard to the subcommittee. The PSA appointed members Sean Ingram and Bob Panek. Hogg suggested that the county look at other options for disposing of the wastewater should the Cape Charles facility not prove to be viable. He suggested that the Bayview wastewater system or possibly some other system in or near Cheriton be considered. Hubbard suggested that the county and PSA wait on a move regarding Cape Charles until after the council and mayoral elections in May. “I don’t want to get into the mix of things if they keep kicking up over everything,” he said. A number of Cape Charles candidates have expressed concerns over the PSA and use of the Town’s wastewater facility and decisions by one council may not be binding on a new council. Hogg suggested that the county send certified letters to property owners in the Cheriton area to determine who actually wishes to be connected to a regional wastewater system. In other business, the supervisors voted 4-1 (Hogg voting no) to award a contract for $228,660 to DGJ Architects to conduct an engineering and architectural survey of the work required to convert the former middle school to reuse for other agencies. In a final action of the evening, the board voted 5-0 to approve a resolution endorsing American Medical Response Mid-Atlantic, Inc. (AMR) to operate as a licensed ambulance provider in the county. AMR intends to help fill the void created when First Med Ambulance went out of business recently. AMR will provide services for those who need non-emergency transport to or from medical facilities.

fied, “suffered gunshot wounds to the arms,” said Dimartino. An investigation found that a vehicle pulled up in front the victims in the Sage parking lot “and blocked them in.” One victim was shot “outside and one was inside” another vehicle. A bullet went straight through the arm of one of the brothers. The chief said Sears was identified as a passenger in the first vehicle. A motive for the shooting was not disclosed. Sears was arrested on March 17 during a traffic stop. Warrants were issued for him in early December. According to a document filed in Northampton General District Court, Sears told authorities “he doesn’t know anything about these charges.” An April preliminary hearing is scheduled. William (Billy) M. Perry, 56, of Trailer Circle in Eastville was charged with strangulation and misdemeanor assault and battery of Valerie Elliott on

March 12. Perry has been living on the Eastern Shore for between five to six months, has minimal ties to the community and could be facing “possible rape charges to come once victim is interviewed,” the records stated. Witnesses saw Perry and Elliott arguing and then observed him choke Elliott just after she called for help. Police were called to the scene and observed Perry having sex with the woman, who was unconscious. When police knocked on the door and identified themselves, Perry left the room and returned to put down a shade. Police then entered the residence, according to the file. Upon further investigation officers learned the Elliott and Perry had been drinking whiskey and smoking crack. Perry told police it was the first time he ever smoked crack. “I just had one hit.” He is free on $3,000 secured bond.

Accomack GOP Trying To Get School Boards Elected By Linda Cicoira Accomack Republicans are circulating petitions aimed at getting school board members elected. The county’s School Board Selection Commission currently appoints them. “We decided collectively to get more involved in local issues,” said Paul Muhly of Parksley, a GOP member. The school division’s funds are “a big part of the county budget.” In nearby Northampton County, a similar referendum passed. Voters went back to the polls last November to select school board members. The winners took office in January. In that county, the Board of Supervisors previously chose school board members. “Northampton, by pushing this, probably raised awareness” in Accomack, said Muhly. “This is the only way to get it on the ballot to be voted on. We’re going to reach out to the (Accomack) Democratic Party” to see if they are also interested in the endeavor. In Accomack, the circuit court judge

appoints members to the selection commission. By law, “before circulating any petition pages one individual who is a registered and qualified voter of the county … must file with the clerk of circuit court.” Accomack Republican Party Chairman Wesley Edwards is on record as the initial petitioner. “Petitions must be filed with the court no later than nine months following the clerk’s certification or early enough to allow the general registrar to verify the petitions and allow the court to enter its order calling the election at least 81 days before the election date, whichever is earlier,” according to law. As of Monday, there were 23,546 registered voters in Accomack, which means 2,355 of them would have to sign the petition before the court could order a referendum. “The only requirement is to have that number,” Accomack Registrar Patricia White said Wednesday. Accomack Schools requested a total of $45,880,695 in federal, state and lo-

Felon Is Denied Request To Have in His Case Evidence Analyzed By Linda Cicoira An Onancock man, who was sentenced last July to 58 years in prison for abduction, shooting, robbing and beating an admitted marijuana dealer before leaving him for dead in 2012, was denied a motion Thursday in Accomack Circuit Court to have evidence from his trial analyzed for DNA and fingerprints. Morris Deshawn Townsend, who was 17 when the incidents occurred, contends he is innocent. “The victim said I came in contact of him,” Townsend told the court. “My fingerprints were never found. My clothes and my fibers never came in contact with him. … DNA was not found in the trunk.” The defendant said the analysis of the evidence would prove relevant because “it would show

that I never came in contact with him. It would show that he was lying.” Townsend’s appeal of his convictions to the Supreme Court of Virginia was turned down. Townsend also denies telling Sgt. Anthony Bright of the Accomack Sheriff’s Office that he and the victim, John Gerald Sepeda Jr., 19, of Parsons Road in Greenbush, were fighting. His initials were on the statement along with his mother’s signature. She was present during the questioning because of his age. A jury found Townsend guilty of the crimes, but because of his age, did not sentence him. Instead, Judge W. Revell Lewis III handed down the sentence. Lewis also denied the recent motion, ruling that Townsend had not proven relevance.

By Ron West Cape Charles Town Council reviewed a number of financial issues at its session last week. Fire Chief Jay Bell asked that the town increase its donation to the fire company from $18,000 to $25,000. The department also receives a donation from Northampton County. Bell listed a number of expensive repairs that the department has had to make to several of its trucks, including the replacement of a number of tires, totaling several thousand dollars. Asked by Councilman Chris Bannon if he would support a small tax increase to help fund the department, Bell said he would not. He stated that a similar fire tax is used in Accomack County, but he has found Northampton to be less receptive to such a tax. Council agreed to review the funding request as it works on the FY 2015 budget. Speaking for Cape Charles Historical Society, Marion Naar, who serves as a volunteer director, urged council to budget $3,000 to partially fund a professional museum director. The museum’s

current budget of $35,000 does not provide enough funding to hire a director. Former Councilman Larry Veber expressed concern over comments being made in town that the town is about to go bankrupt. Veber noted that the town’s finances are in good shape and it is meeting its financial obligations. “Whoever is saying these things is dong a disservice to the town,” Veber said. A proposal to increase the Transient Occupancy Tax from 3.0 percent to 3.7 percent to help tourism faced opposition from some council members and attendees. Councilman Frank Wendell opposes the increase and urged council to dismiss the idea of a tax increase, adding that the town needs to cut the number of employees, as well as some planned equipment purchases. Councilman Chris Bannon, himself a bed-and-breakfast operator, argued that it would be a pass-through tax only affecting visitors. He noted that he has never heard a customer complain that the tax is too high or that it would prevent them from lodging in the area. Bannon noted that the local tax is much lower than the tax in Virginia Beach, where it is about 11 percent. Speaking in support of the move was Donna Olney-Kohler who said she sees it as a way to support tourism and other business efforts in town. Also supporting the tax increase was Hank Mayor, another B&B owner. He cited a need to create a tourism board for the town. Town Clerk Libby Hume read into the record, a letter from Blue Heron Realty contending that the tax in-

crease would have a negative effect on the town as many renters have contracts for a given amount and imposing the tax now would mean that the property owner would have to absorb the extra tax rather than passing it on to renters with an existing contract. Councilwoman Joan Natali opposes the use of the tax exclusively for tourism, noting that part of the proceeds should fund other requests, such as the one from the fire department. Councilman Steve Bennett agreed with Wendell with regards to cutting the town’s expenses, but does not oppose the tax itself. Like Natali, he would like proceeds to help with other funding requests. Council voted 4-2 (Wendell and Bennett voting no) to conduct a public hearing for April on the tax issue. The matter of the proposed purchase of seven lots near Fig Street and Randolph Avenue drew a number of speakers. The issue involves property on the north side of Stone Road as it nears the intersection of Fig Street and Randolph Avenue, offered for sale by the owners of Bay Creek for $100,000. In 2010, the town entered into an agreement with Bay Creek, LLC to rent the properties with the option of first refusal to purchase them. The Town’s Comprehensive Plan, adopted in 2009, calls for the possible addition of a traffic round-about for the intersection should property be made available. Wendell spoke in opposition to the purchase, once again stressing the need to save money and cut expenses and personnel. “The $100,000 can be used elsewhere,” he said. Bannon supports the purchase, but not the round-about, claiming that traffic is not that big of an issue. During the discussion, it was pointed out that Bay Creek, LLC owes approximately $61,000 in unpaid taxes to the town. It was recommended that the proposed purchase price be reduced by the amount owed. Town Manager Heather Arcos noted that the town has funds left from a previous project to purchase the properties. Council voted 5-1 (Wendell voting no) to support the purchase and requested that Arcos revise the offer to reflect the amount of back taxes owed.

Rural Health Wins Ground Water Award The Eastern Shore of Virginia Ground Water Committee has awarded the 2013 Ground Water Award to the Eastern Shore Rural Health Onley Community Health Center for its commitment to stormwater runoff reduction and water conservation. The Ground Water Committee recognized the sustainable site development concepts incorporated at the facility that provide for cleaner stormwater runoff and lower demand of ground water resources. Specifically, the facility landscape design includes a wetlands stormwater treatment system and a “Healing Garden” that utilizes native plants that require less water during the growing season. The landscape design was intended to serve as a community model for conservation and runoff reduction. The Ground Water Committee presented the award to Eastern Shore Rural Health CEO Nancy Stern during its meeting on March 18. The Ground Water Committee established the Ground Water Awards Pro-

gram in 2004 to publicize efforts to protect our regional ground water supply. For more information about the award program and the Ground Wa-

Man Who Attacked First Responders Is Suing Drug Companies By Linda Cicoira Bradley Scott Colas, the Virginia Beach police officer who admitted he stabbed two Atlantic firefighters and shot a hole through the pant leg of another in March 2012, is suing the maker and distributor of the antibiotic he took before the bizarre encounter occurred. The 26-year-old blames the prescription drug Biaxin, which he was prescribed for a respiratory ailment, for making him psychotic and delusional “to the point that it endangered his life and the lives of others, suffering injuries, pain, humiliation, harm to his reputation and incarceration.” He claims, “This was not the first time Biaxin or its generic equivalent affected a user in this way.” Colas says that after three doses of Biaxin, he “began experiencing symptoms of psychosis, becoming manic and at times fixated and obsessed with religious ideas.” After a fourth dose he was “still unable to sleep … began feeling as if he has some special religious powers and would be given a religious

mission.” He says he called the doctor, who was unavailable and then spoke with a pharmacist, who told him “she was not aware of the kinds of side effects he was describing as being associated with Biaxin and that he could ‘stay on it.’ ” In his suit, Colas says he again called the doctor whose nurse said he was unaware of any psychotic reaction to Biaxin. Colas says it was suggested that he take another dose, which he did, but was still unable to sleep. Colas says he made about 30 phone calls between 2 and 9 a.m., acted bizarre and out of character while viewing a movie with friends the next night and eventually “became convinced he was a prophet.” His delusions set him on a trip to Philadelphia to protect his former girlfriend. It was during that journey that he crashed his car on Lankford Highway near Hallwood, according to reports. Colas was later charged with attempted murder, use of a firearm and maliciously causing bodily injury. He was not prosecuted because “the single conclusion is that the acts … were the

result of the defendant’s involuntary intoxication.” Five doctors agreed about the decision, according to the record. When firefighters arrived following his accident, “I thought they were up to something,” Colas testified, adding that he demanded their radio so he could speak to their supervisor. They didn’t give him the equipment and at some point someone realized he had a gun. When they tried to take it from him, “he stabbed at them … I didn’t know what was real and what wasn’t,” Colas said. Firefighters Timmy McCready and Edward Taylor were stabbed, according to court records. At a bond hearing, Colas testified that that he meant to kill the volunteers. Colas also admitted he got fixated on the numbers 444 while hallucinating from the drug and got scared when he saw that number (Station 4) on the firefighters’ helmets. Colas is asking U.S. District Court in northern Illinois, where the pharmaceutical companies are headquar-

tered, to order Abbott Laboratories and AbbVie, Inc., to pay him in excess of $75,000 in general damages including the cost of defending himself in the criminal proceedings, more than $75,000 in special damages and more than $75,000 for past and future mental and emotional distress. He wants a trial by jury. His lawsuit states, he “had no history of psychosis or any mental disorder” before the incident. “Additionally he had never taken any medication for nor been treated for any psychological disorder. In fact, he had passed multiple law enforcement psychological screening tests all prior to February 2012.” Colas contends, “Abbott aggressively marketed Biaxin and emphasized its safety in comparison to other available antibiotics. “In Phase II and III clinical trials preceding Biaxin’s FDA approval,” Colas says, “Abbott became aware that Biaxin caused various adverse reactions relating to the central nervous system in approximately 2-3 percent of users … effects became the subject of reported studies in scientific, psychiatric and pharmaceutical journals and treatises.” Colas says the FDA documented more than 1,000 cases of neuropsychiatric adverse effects associated with Biaxin and that the defendants were aware of the reports and studies. He claims the companies did not adequately warn physicians, pharmacists and patients about the side effects. The companies have not yet responded to the allegations. AbbVie was given until May 2 to answer. The company plans to file a motion to dismiss, according to court records.

“S

ix Mornings on Sanibel,” a book you may never have heard of, has been compared to “Tuesdays with Morrie” and Hemmingway’s “Old Man and the Sea.” That’s high praise, since the first is an all-time best seller, and the latter is a classic for the ages. I had never heard of “Six Mornings on Sanibel” by Charles Sobczak until my son passed the book on recently. He and his wife spent a week at the tiny island off the coast of Florida last year and came across an autographed copy of the book. After reading it, my son thought I might enjoy it since fishing dominates the story line. He was right, but “Six Mornings on Sanibel” is much more than a story of two men who meet at a fishing pier for six mornings. It is a story of two contrasting lives that show the choices we make lead us down a path that can be difficult to change. Carl Johnson, a wise, retired fishing guide from Sanibel, and Richard Evans, a young, stressed-out divorce attorney from Peoria, share more than cold Cokes and snook runs. Stories of lost love, mortality and heroism are intertwined with catching big snooks and reds that run off the island’s fishing pier. They all add up to wisdom, something sometimes lost in our hurried age. Evans has been forced by his wife to take her and their two children on a vacation and finds himself booked for a week on an island of fewer than 7,000 people. Partly to get away from his nagging wife and the two boys who only find pleasure in high-tech gadgets, Evans walks down to the fishing pier each morning. He keeps returning, not so much for the fishing but for the com-

SPORTS

‘Sanibel’ Book Brings Perspective

pany of Johnson, who tells a good story. Richard Evans, by some measures, is a success. He has a nice home, luxury cars and a thriving practice that charges $390 an hour. But he’s extremely overweight and chain smokes his way through three packs a day. In his practice he will go to any lengths to find dirt on the spouse of the client he represents. He almost always wins. Carl Johnson worked as a lender in a bank many years ago. When he and his family vacationed on Sanibel one year, he never returned home — literally. Sending word to the real-estate company to sell his house and ship his belongings, he took up fishing and learned the secrets of the trade well enough to become one of the top guides on the island. He eventually retired to spend a blissful life with his wife, who loved to garden. Their two children were leading successful lives in the big city. Fate changed all that, however, when she was diagnosed with cancer that led to a painful death. At first, Carl had no interest in fishing following his wife’s death. Never thinking he would enjoy pier fishing after a lifetime of chasing big fish in the ocean, he was encouraged by a friend to give it a try. He found he enjoyed not only the fishing, but the camaraderie of the fellows at the pier. It became a morning ritual. Always willing to help a tourist, Carl stumbles upon Richard, who had entered the local tackle shop with his credit card and bought three of everything with no knowledge of how to use anything. Richard senses a change coming over himself each day as he returns from the pier after listening to the stories told by the wise, old fishing guide. He questions his drive to sacrifice everything for his job, including the rela-

tionship with his boys, who constantly fight over the toys he continually gives them in lieu of his own presence. He knows his wife only sees him as a ticket to the country clubs and high-society parties. Carl’s children call regularly and beg him to come live with them in the big city, but he knows his place is on Sanibel near the sea. Carl can’t hide the grief he carries for his wife, showing emotions that Richard has never seen in his law practice. Carl talks of a simplistic existence that has clear choices for a life that should be lived with passion and to the fullest. Yet when the time comes, death should be met with dignity and grace. I won’t give away the ending, but take my word that “Six Mornings on Sanibel” is a worthy book regardless of whether you enjoy fishing. Wherever you are in your life, it may make you take stock of your own existence.

Four remain with the club, now meeting eight times a year, taking off summers and Christmas. Through marriages, children and all the things that come with life, the women, who started as 18- and 19-yearolds, still play in their early 80s. Although they keep score, the competition is secondary. Tallies are tossed after each session, and the women start with a clean slate the next time they meet. It’s the shared friendships they count most. The original four are Sally Ann Mason Manuel, Patsy Warren Gladden, Nancy Hutchinson Prettyman and Anne Drewer Sterling, my mother.

Bridge for Life

US 13 & Rt. 641 Philip J. Morris P.O. Box 342 President Cape Charles, VA 23310

This might be a stretch for sports fans and has a personal connection, but you’ve got to find this remarkable. There are four women on the Eastern Shore who have met regularly to play bridge for 63 years. They learned to play the card game in high school at Central when tables were set up on rainy days in the recreation hall during physical education classes. Guidance counselor Betty Bryant taught the girls the basics of the game. Bridge, once hugely popular with both men and women, is a card game that seems to be lost on younger generations who have numerous visual forms of entertainment competing for their time. In January of 1951, eight of the students formed a bridge club shortly after graduation and started meeting every other week.

Arcadia’s Mills Tosses 8-Inning Shutout Win The Arcadia High School boys’ baseball team beat King William 2-0 in an 8-inning battle Friday.

the bottom of the eighth. Arcadia coach Terry Mohler said, “Our team was down three starters, but we came out and competed and brought home the victory. I am proud of our kids and how they were able to stay composed and finish the game. We still have a lot of work to do, but to go out and get a conference win over an opponent like King William is rewarding.”

Golf Funds Go to Hospice, Custis Park Hospice and Palliative Care of the Eastern Shore and the Randy Custis Memorial Fund each received a check for $7,500 from the proceeds of the 12th annual Northampton County Sheriff’s Golf Tournament held in September at Bay Creek Golf Club. A record 164 players attended with over $11,000 in prizes given out, including a seven-night Caribbean Cruise. Northampton County Sheriff David Doughty said, “This tournament has become one of the largest charity golf outings on the Eastern Shore, and each year we strive to make it better. I would like to personally thank all the sponsors, players, and volunteers who help make the tournament a success each year. Additionally, I would like

to thank all the staff at Bay Creek for their support.” Hospice and Palliative Care of the Eastern Shore is a non-profit agency that provides a special way of caring for people with limited life expectancies. Hospice has been a recipient since 2002. The Randy Custis Memorial Fund is a non-profit organization that provides direct financial assistance to the Randy Custis Memorial Park in Nassawadox and has been a recipient since 2008. Phil Custis said, “We really appreciate the years of financial support and assistance the Sheriff’s Office has provided to the Randy Custis Memorial Fund.”

Broadwater’s Riopel Named to All-State Hoop Team Michael Riopel of Broadwater Academy has been named to the first team of the Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association All-State basketball team. Riopel, a 6’5” senior guard, was one of eight players in Division III named to the first squad. He also made the team as a junior. Riopel also was named the Metro Conference Player of the Year this season in a unanimous vote by the coaches. Riopel averaged 19.8 points per game this season and led his team in rebounding with 6.3 per game. He finished his career with 1,936 points, more than 700 assists and more than 500 rebounds. Riopel is the second leading scorer in school history. He also became the second Broadwater basketball player to have his jersey retired. Philip Smith, the leading Viking scorer in history with 1,994 points, had his jersey retired in 1995. “I’ve coached Michael since he was 5 years old at some level,” said Broadwater coach Eddie Spencer, “and it’s his work ethic that separates him from other good players. He’s always looking to improve his game.” Riopel is being recruited by several Division 3 colleges.

Gone but not forgotten

Love, Mom, Billy Wayne, Don, Michael & Sandy THANK YOU The family of Martha H. Cowan would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to Riverside Shore Rehabilitation Center of Parksley, Va. for the wonderful care Martha was given during the past four years. After each hospital stay, The Rehab Dept. would work their magic and before long she would have her strength back. The nurses and nurses’ aides on C-Wing became like family to Martha and her family, with their patience and consideration. Thank you to all who helped in the care of Martha. We would also like to thank all of the Administration Staff, especially Ann Obenshain, who gave so much help with all that paperwork. You were there for us when it became impossible to care for Martha at home and we will be forever grateful. Thank you. Roy, Teri and Family

M

y life had a major change not so long ago. So while I struggle to get used to the ramifications, I may as well get an ultra-modern icon for this column and enjoy a totally newfangled fresh start. The periscope is no longer going to shield me from the world. I’m getting out of the water and I’m going to walk on the glorious flatland that I love. Yippee! I’ve decided I should refer to myself as Princess Handy. No, I am not expecting people to curtsy or bow. That part of life hasn’t been altered. Though if there are those who want to, I won’t

be stopping them from worshipping at my feet. The “Handy” part is because of the recent accomplishment of pulling up a toilet. Yes, you read that correctly. I can do it! A friend and I are putting tile on my bathroom floor (also a handy endeavor), and getting the commode out of the way was one of the first things we had to do. Does everyone know what it looks like under there? Very interesting for a germaphobe like me. YUCK. By the way, porcelain is heavy. Oh, and I can replace a faucet too. But, no I’m not going to be a plumber in my next life. That takes muscle. And I’m kind of worried about whether we are going to be able to get that toilet back on without some help. In this new life, sarcasm still will be prevalent. And likely, I’ll continue to be as cynical as most hardened newspaper people. But treating myself better is going to be essential. When I’m not in repair mode, I plan on sleeping late whenever possible, reading, painting and sitting on the front porch while doing absolutely nothing but watching the sun go down. I’m going to be more

Post Office Mail Why Not Obamacare for POTUS? Dear Editor: I retired from the U.S. Navy with 22 years of service and am very pleased with the insurance that I have. So far, ObamaCare has had no effect on me. However, I have heard and read how great the program is. My question is: If it is such a fine program, why aren’t President Obama, Congress and federal workers enrolled in it? Maybe I’m missing something. Rex Ingram, Nassawadox

Freeze Owes Success to Many Dear Editor: On behalf of our Habitat February Freeze committee, I would like to thank all the volunteers and dippers who made this year’s event the best ever. We had individuals, as well as teams from local churches and elementary and high schools — and even a visit from Kipper, the Kiptopeke Elementary School mascot! We especially appreciate the generous gift of time and fund-raising from Northampton County Sheriff David Doughty, our first “Celebrity Dipper.” Personally, I know that both David and his wife Kathy are

social and learn new things. I also think I will need $10 million and a maid. One can dream in this new life. I’m hoping the rest of you out there will follow my lead. Let’s embrace the wonders of the world or at least the marvels of the Eastern Shore of Virginia. I’m still not going to wear those hideous ¾-length pants that people call Capris or acquire a taste for beer, asparagus or perch. But I want to retain the aching smile I got on my face when all those carefree folks came out to wear the green at the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Onancock recently. So what if I earn a few more wrinkles from grinning? I can take it, by golly. I’ll just fix those too. Fun must be the center of the allnew me. I’m not a warm-weather lover, so I’m going to need help trying to enjoy summer tasks. Is there life beyond my air conditioner? I’m really not sure. Most importantly, I need to find out how to enjoy cutting the grass. I see people who do it all the time and they look happy. Should I pretend that I’m in the Indianapolis 500? Or shall I envision myself on safari riding on the

willing supporters of many of our youth and charitable organizations. The Annual Eastern Shore Habitat for Humanity February Freeze is a great way to get a warm and fuzzy feeling while dipping into icy Cape Charles waters. We also have lots of ways non-dippers can help. Put us on your calendars for next year (Feb. 14, 2015); come join in the fun — and make a contribution to one of our hardest working charities. Joyce Fooks Holland, Chair Habitat February Freeze Committee

ESO Repas Benefits of Event Dear Editor: On March 22, the popular local band Pound Net performed at Little Italy in Nassawadox for the benefit of ESO Arts Center in Belle Haven. The event surpassed last year’s proceeds and resulted in over $2,100 raised for ESO’s mission of fostering the development of the arts through instruction and performance. On behalf of Eastern Shore’s Own Arts Center’s Board of Directors, I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to Pound Net (Allen Caison, Fred Kern, Lee Hicklin, and Drury Stith) for putting on an awesome show for the 100 people in attendance and for their enthusiastic support of ESO. A major thanks to Bryant & Stratton College for sponsoring the benefit financially

Post OpEd Page

back of an elephant? Will there be great satisfaction in going back and forth in straight lines? Is it better to make box or circle patterns in the lawn? In my quest for this knowledge, I was told that one should always cut the grass so that it is thrown on grass that has already been cut, not on grass that still has to be mowed. That makes sense but can one do that without getting it on the sidewalk? It must be possible. If I’m going to do such work, I think I should buy the modern music machine, an iPod. Then I can sing while I mow and no one will be able to hear me over the roar. It is just more of life in my own little world. I’ve got all kinds of honey-do jobs lined up. My deck and outbuilding need paint, the flower garden needs to be weeded, the windows need washing and the grill and the garage need to be cleaned. Sound familiar? No wonder I prefer winter. Looking out at the snow falling and watching television is much more relaxing than all that stuff. And it’s cheaper, too. OK, so I’m going to have to start splurging, too. Did I say “Yippee”?

as they have done for several years. Molte grazie to Franco Nocera — owner of Little Italy Ristorante — for offering the location, providing excellent (and really busy) waitstaff, and donating all the food from the buffet again this year. Finally, thank you to those who came out to enjoy the good food and music, knowing that it was for a good cause. With your help, we’ll continue to empower the Shore through the arts, as we have done since 1985. Dawn Simpson, via email
