PRESTLEY FARM
King William Land Mark Under Restoration
By- Danny Clark
As you enter King William from
the west or pass through from the
east, you cannot miss Prestley Farm
barn on Rt.360 across from 360
Hardware.
Passing to different owners through
the years it fell into serious disrepair.
Once owned by the Townsend
family, William Guy Townsend
stated, “It’s sad it isn’t being cared
for, so many events and stories lie within it’s walls.”
Now new owner, Carrol Lee Walker of King and Queen, has begun a complete
restoration. Mr. Walker stated “I just didn’t want to see that beautiful old building fall
down, My father used to take me there when I was a young boy.” Mr. Walker has had
many suggestions on how the building could be used but for now he is mainly
concerned with saving the local landmark.
Thanks to the Walker family, Prestley Farm will stand to greet 360 travelers as they
pass by as it has done for many years in the past, and now will continue to do for many
years in the future.

service. I wish King William County and
its citizens well and thank you for your
role in the accomplishments of the county

In the process of restoration, Prestley Barn stands proud.

Publisher’s Message
I got a phone call from a good friend of mine the other day. We used to ride horses
together with a group of like minded friends. We had lost touch with each other as
our lives went in different directions. His phone call made me think of all the great
people I have met, and for what ever reason have not stayed in touch with.
I do miss many of the people I have known and wonder how they are doing. I guess
I fill each day with what is before me. That doesn’t mean I have forgotten the special
people in my life. I hope they know I remember the times we shared together and that
life has been kind to them.
I am not the type to chat or keep up on the internet it just doesn't work for me. I hope
everyone had a great Labor Day weekend, soon the beautiful days of fall will be here.
Until next time…...

King William Republican Party Meeting
Floating Teeth
By Allen Brintley & “Pip”
First I would like to thank the
wonderful and knowledgeable
people at T-Town Tack in Tappahanock and 360 Hardware in
King William for sponsoring our
column as a regular feature in
the Country Courier.
When the vet was here for
Pip’s last visit, she said “You
should have Pip’s teeth floated.”
Of course, the first thing that
came to mind was, “What the
heck is she talking about? The
only teeth I’ve ever seen floating was my grandparent’s dentures in a glass of polident.” Not
knowing what was involved, I
said “let’s do it.” After sedating
Pip, she put a harness on her
head (with levers on the front of
it) to keep her mouth open and
then safety-tied it to a beam in
the barn at a good working
height. She then pulled out the
biggest battery operated Dewalt
drill I had ever seen! Guys are
always in competition to have
the biggest and best stuff and I
was envious! She proceeded to
grind Pip’s teeth flat and even.
She rinsed her mouth out with
water a few times. She said that
a horse’s teeth keep growing
most of their life so you have to
float their teeth every so often. I
asked if she could give Pip some
breathe mints while she was
there because I’m not too fond
of mule breath! She didn’t have
any. I would like to hear from
you so email me at [email protected] or
call 690-7870. I’ll see you on
the trails.

meeting included Senator Tommy
Norment as the quest speaker
Senator Norment represents the Third
Senatorial District in Virginia. He spoke
about issues in the General Assembly this

Peatross,
89,
beloved mother,
grandmother
(Mama
Rose),
sister, and aunt
entered the gates
of heaven on
August 26, 2014.
S h e
w a s
welcomed with
open arms by her
husband of 62 years, David “Mike” Odell
Rose and her mother and father, John
Gordon and Sibyl Valentine Peatross, who
preceded her in death.
She is survived by her devoted daughters
and their sons-in-love, Dana Gregory Rose
of Radford; Sherri Rose Gretes (George)
of Mechanicsville; Debbie Sibyl Rose of
King William; and Betty Rose Lennon
(Sean) of Midlothian. Marjorie’s adoring
grandchildren are Evan David Gregory
(Sarah), Andrew Rose Gregory (Casey
McIntyre, fiancée), Michael Lloyd
Gregory, all of Radford and Brooklyn,
NY; Marjorie Betty Jacobs of Richmond;
Celia Rose Jacobs of Hanover; Rachel
Lesley Jacobs of Goochland; Matthew
Christopher Lennon and David Barth
Lennon, both of Midlothian. Marjorie’s
loving siblings are Thomas Bernard
Peatross (Betty Mann) of Mechanicsville;
Janice Gordon Kane of Devon, PA; and
Barbara Ann Wiggins (Harold), of
Ashland.
Marjorie was born on February 25, 1925 in
Richmond, Virginia. She graduated from
Glen Allen High School in 1942, attended
the Pan American Business School, and
worked for the Internal Revenue Service
before her marriage to Mike in 1948. Their
honeymoon was a delightful month-long,
winter cross-country road trip with Mike’s
mother, father, and brother. This trip was
an example of her ability to love and be
loved by everyone. Marjorie was a
homemaker and often said that her
happiest times were as a wife and mother,
supporting her husband and raising four
daughters in the Ginter Park neighborhood
of Richmond. Marjorie spent time each
summer at a family river cottage on the
Mattaponi River near Walkerton,
beginning with her parents and siblings.
Later, she prepared amazing meals, taught
her own husband and daughters to fish,
and played ‘chee-chee’ in the river with
her grandchildren. She loved baking pound
cakes and sharing them with her family
and friends, once baking seven different
recipes for a family taste test. Her most
important gifts to others were her
generosity, her sense of humor, her
storytelling, and her capacity to express
joy, love, and compassion to everyone she
met. We learned from her the greatest
lesson, unconditional love. Marjorie had a
remarkable ability to express and act on
her unfaltering faith. She served as
president of the Richmond Chapter of the
Christian Women’s Club. She was devoted
to First Baptist Church and the Esther
Sunday School Class. Her constant prayer
became: “May thy healing power flow
through me in my life, day by day.”
Marjorie ‘lived’ her faith. Her life leaves
us the legacy of her infinite joy and love in
our hearts.
Visitation will take place on Friday,
August 29th from 3:00-5:00 and 6:00-7:30
at the Atlee Chapel - Woody Funeral
Home, 9271 Shady Grove Road.
A
celebration of life service was held on
Saturday, August 30th at 11am at the First
Baptist Church Chapel, Richmond,
followed by burial in Forest Lawn
Cemetery. Memorial contributions can be
made to the First Baptist Church

10th Annual Bluegrass Family Ruritan Club Presents Octoberfest
Day & Fly-In
In memory of Mary Ann Clements
Dear Friends, Churches and Business
Owners:
A special thank you for the gifts and
services you provided to our Bluegrass
Family Day & Fly-In at the Middle
Peninsula Regional Airport. This event is
held to benefit the American Cancer
Society and the Lower King & Queen
Fire-EMS. All of the churches, volunteers,
businesses and friends who generously
donate their time, emotional and financial
support, and talent to help raise funds for
this special event are to be commended.
We would like to send a special thanks to
Fulcrum Concepts for use of their
grounds, facilities and hanger. We have
had many compliments on how great the
event was and how everyone enjoyed it.
Each person has a unique story about
how cancer has affected their life
personally or through a relative or a
friend. Despite its penetration in our lives,
the battle against cancer goes on. Through
your generosity, the gift you gave helped
to raise money that will be donated to the
American Cancer Society and the Lower
King & Queen Fire-EMS in loving
memory of Mary Ann Clements and all
who lost the battle to this horrible disease,
and in honor of those who are survivors.
We pray this money be used for research
to help fight and someday rid us of this
disease.
These funds will also provide needed
equipment for our Fire-EMS so they are
able to continue servicing our county and
surrounding counties when needed.
The family of Mary Ann Clements and
members of the Lower King & Queen
Fire-EMS would like to sincerely thank
you for your gracious donations. The 2014
Bluegrass Family Day & Fly-In was a
tremendous success. As of today we have
raised over $14,000.00 and donations are
still coming in. Thank you again from the
bottom of our hearts. Your kindness is
greatly appreciated.
Anyone wishing to make a donation
please make check payable to the
American Cancer Society and mail to:

River City Recycle Open House
By Dean Collings
King and Queen’s newest business,
River City Recycling located on Route
360 just north of Bradley’s, had their open
house Friday, August 22. Brandon, the
sight General Manager, said the
community had been very supportive of
their start up and was excited about the
turnout for their open house. Brandon,
William and Marie are excited about
serving the greater King William – King
And Queen Community. Brandon invites
you to stop by and say hello.
Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual
confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad
times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human
weaknesses.

Letter to the Editor
Dear Editor,
Dear Editor,
BEWARE!
This is a message to the person that left a
pillow case of kittens (maybe 3 weeks old
- still nursing) on the street behind my
house either Monday (8/18) or Tuesday
(8/19) night. (Kelley Lane).
We are a civilized society. Or, most of us
are. This was an inhumane thing to do and
it wasn't necessary. King William has a
brand new, very nice animal shelter not 8
miles down the road from where you
dropped them that could have taken them
in. Instead, they suffered - and one died
because of you.
After checking with several "animal
protections services" in the area (including
the Richmond Animal Shelter and the
Richmond SPCA), I found they wouldn't
take these kittens because we "lived
outside of their area". Yet, they didn't mind
taking my money and were not worried
where I lived when I went to adopt a dog
some years back.
On the advice of my vet, I took them to
the King William Regional Animal
Shelter. The people there were very caring
and professional. The young lady with
whom I worked told me they would do
everything they could to place the kittens
with a nursing mother. But also warned me
that it might not work out. She wanted me
to know the “reality” of the situation.
To my surprise and relief, they had the
DEAR WINDSOR ROAD AND MILL
ROAD NEIGHBORS, BEWARE! WE
ARE DEVISTED AND OUR HEARTS
ARE BROKEN! DOGS CAME INTO
OUR YARD THIS MORNING (AUGUST
21ST) AND KILLED OUR PRECIOUS
BELOVED CATS MAGGIE AND
MARTHA! THIS IS A TRUE
TRAGEDY, AND WE MUST FIGHT
FOR YEAR-ROUND LEASH LAWS!
THE APRIL 1ST THROUGH MAY 31ST
RULE IS TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE!
PLEASE DO NOT LET YOUR CATS OR
SMALL DOGS GO OUTSIDE UNLESS
YOU STAY WITH THEM EVERY
MINUTE! THIS HORRIFIC ACT TOOK

WANT YOU TO EXPERIENCE LOSING
A FAMILY MEMBER AS WE DID, AS
WE WILL NEVER EVER BE THE

kittens placed with a nursing mother cat
from a rescue group within about an hour
of my dropping them off. They are now
snuggled up to their "foster mom" eating
their fill. So, you see....their suffering
could have been avoided. No thanks to
you......
So…either spay or neuter your pet and
you won’t have to worry about what to do
with the “little ones”. Or at least do the
humane thing and take them to the shelter.
The shelter is located just a few hundred
yards east of the courthouse. (20201

Respite Event)
Dear Editor:
What can C.A.R.E. do for King William
residents? If you are caregiver for a senior
citizen, you may want to ask this question!
We want to give caregivers an afternoon
off—away from their care responsibilities,
while their loved one participates in a fun
social event with other senior citizens—at
no charge to participants. They will enjoy
interaction with each other, as well as
respectful attention from adult providers
who will care for their individual needs
during the event. Entertainment, group
activities and singing, along with light
snacks, fill out an afternoon respite for
everyone!

NEW PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS QUAILFRIENDLY FORESTRY PRACTICES
Attention forest landowners! The Virginia
Department of Forestry and Virginia
Department of Game and Inland Fisheries
have teamed up to provide a new set of
cost-share opportunities for forest
landowners in Essex, King & Queen and
King William Counties. All five Forestry
Quail practices are designed to help the
landowner manage their forested land in a
way that is both profitable and beneficial
to wildlife, specifically Northern Bobwhite
quail.
Forested stands that are too thick will
shade out beneficial ground plants and
have lower potential for timber production.
Accordingly, early thinning will improve
tree growth, health and development of
wildlife-favoring plants. Through the
Forestry Quail program, landowners may
receive up to 80% of their costs, up to
$100/acre, for this pre-commercial
thinning.
Once a stand is mid-way through its life
cycle, thinning once againallows for
increased growth and tree health as well as
the development of understory habitat.
Larger stands can be thinned by loggers for
profit by the landowner. However, it is
often difficult to get loggers to thin smallacreage stands due to the cost of moving
equipment to the site. Consequently, the
Forestry Quail program offers landowners
a $100/acre incentive to have their 5 to 40
acre sites thinned, depending on species.
Following a thinning, additionalsunlight
initially allows many plants beneficial to
wildlife togrow under the pines, but less
favorable woody plants willsoon dominate
the understory. Controlling these
woodyplants with herbicides opens the
forest floor again forgrasses and weeds
preferred by quail. Accordingly, the
Forestry Quail offers assistance for using
ground or aerially applied herbicide
applications to control woody plants while
having little effect on beneficial wildlife
plants in the understory of commercially
thinned forests. Rates run 60% of costs,
not to exceed $50/acre.
While thinning is great, often the
understory of thinned stands is covered
with a thick needle or leaf layer that
smothers the seed bank, thereby inhibiting
the growth of quail friendly grasses and
forbs. Prescribed fire, under controlled and
managed conditions, is a tool that can help
solve this dilemma by reducing build-ups
of hazardous fuels, opening the understory,
and encouraging new plant growth used by
wildlife. Therefore, for mid-aged or older
stands, the Forestry Quail program will
provide 60% of costs, up to $40 acre, for
burning projects.
Finally, for landowners interested in
planting a recently clear-cut piece or
perhaps converting open lands to forest,
the Forestry Quail program offers 80%
cost-share, up to $200/acre, for preparing
and planting longleaf or shortleaf pine.
Both native pine species were once
common, but now have become a rarity in
Virginia. However, these commercially
valuable species offer an alternative to
loblolly for wildlife-oriented landowners
due to their growth pattern where young
pine stands stay open longer and remain
more tolerable to fire management.
For more information on these practices,
including eligibility information, please
contact David Bryan, Private Lands
Biologist, at 804-537-5225 x119 or your
local Forester at the information below:

Local Author Publishes Second Book
No Address is the space adventure of Dan
Stanley and his team, Unity. They have
helped to build a spaceship they named
Adventure. Now they are traveling into
outer space in this rocket built almost
entirely from recycled materials. Their
mission is to reach a newly discovered
planet to harvest its resources. This is the
first commercial venture into outer space,
and the project does not have the
endorsement or support of the
government. Will they ever reach the
planet? What will they find there? Can
they survive and even enjoy life on this
alien planet? Will they ever make it back
to Earth? No Address is the sequel
to Homeless which was published earlier
this year.
Homeless tells how the character Dan
Stanley survives on his own. He has
various jobs from construction, to
welding, managing a laundromat, and
even some charter-boat fishing. His coworkers never guess that he is
homeless. His adventures and travels take
him from Virginia, to Pennsylvania, to
Nebraska, and finally to Texas. Dan is in
the right place at the right time. He makes
his plans and follows them.
He doesn’t know it; but someone else has
a plan for him, also. Charles W. Kanka
never thought of writing books until he
was inspired to begin writing down his
nightly dreams. He’s discovered that he
actually enjoys the writing process. In
fact, his third book is in the editing
process; while he is well into his fourth
novel. Both books are available in soft
cover and e-book on Amazon.com. You
can contact Charles and keep up with him
by following his blog at http://

Virginia Receives National Governor’s
Association Grant ~ NGA grant will drive increased attainment of
STEM-H Workforce credentials~
RICHMOND - The National Governor’s
Association (NGA) announced last week that
Virginia has been selected to receive a
$170,000 grant and will also be one of 14
states to participate in an 18 month national
policy academy aimed at better aligning education and workforce training to economic development priorities.
The NGA grant proposal was jointly submitted
by the Governor’s Office and the Virginia
Community College System. Grant activities
will focus on increasing the Commonwealth’s
attainment levels of STEM-H (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, and Health) credentials, including industry certifications, apprenticeship credentials and degrees, most
needed by Virginia’s current and emerging
businesses and industries. This announcement
by the NGA comes just a week after Governor
Terry McAuliffe signed an executive order
establishing his “New Virginia Economy”
workforce initiative, a robust plan which calls
for 50,000 new STEM-H credentials earned by
the end of his administration.
This grant will help in our efforts to enhance
Virginia’s high tech, high skilled sectors,
which are vital to the growth and diversification of the New Virginia Economy,” said Governor McAuliffe. “This collaboration will
send a strong signal to the emerging workforce
of the immediate need for a credentialed, highskilled labor force to meet today and tomorrow’s business needs.”
The NGA grant will support development of a
statewide public awareness and marketing
campaign; enhance data and analytical resources; encourage new and expanded public
and private partnerships; and augment a policy
agenda aimed at increasing enrollment and
completion of STEM-H credentials.
Secretary of Commerce and Trade Maurice
Jones was excited about the opportunity the
grant provides. “This grant will allow Virginia
to take a big step forward in terms of workforce development,” Secretary Jones
said. “The program will help us to better align
educational offerings with workforce needs
while paving the way for a unified vision of a
Commonwealth made stronger by a vibrant,
highly-skilled workforce.”
“Now more than ever, Virginia needs an educational system fit for the 21st Century,”added
Secretary of Education Anne Holton. “By
bridging the divide between education and
business and bolstering the Governor’s workforce initiative, these funds will help us do just
that.”
“Virginia’s businesses are hungry for highlyskilled workers,” said Dr. Glenn DuBois,
Chancellor, Virginia Community College
System. “And, Virginia’s Community Colleges are proud to be a part of a grant that will
ultimately help more Virginians to find their
way to the training and credentials they need
for good jobs.”
Secretary Jones will lead the Virginia State
Leadership Team, including representatives of
the Virginia Board of Workforce Development,
business and industry, education at all levels,
and economic and workforce development.

start having positive results. Willie Nelson

Arts Alive Opens New Season of Performances with the
Richmond Ballet
Arts Alive is proud to announce the opening
performance of its new season series of
performances with the Richmond Ballet. The
performance will be held at the Robinson/Olsson
Civic Auditorium and Fine Arts Center in West
Point, VA on Saturday, September 13th at 7:00
pm.
Richmond Ballet will present:
Raymonda, first created by Marius Petipa in 1898
for the Imperial Mariinsky Theatre in St.
Petersburg, is a bright and colorful ballet, full of
memorable dancing, that delights audiences
across the globe as a fixture within the repertories
of the world’s greatest classical ballet companies.
Set to Alexander Glazunov’s score, Raymonda is
a story of love and intrigue set at the opulent
courts of France.
Mozartiana, George Balanchine’s final
masterpiece, done, as many believe, as a farewell
for his beloved ballerina Suzanne Farrell who
premiered the lead role in 1981, continues the
celebration. A series of elegant dances,
Mozartiana is set to Tchaikovsky’s moving musical
tribute to Mozart. The ballet’s beautiful steps –
both purely classical and, yet unmistakably crafted
by Balanchine – intertwine to form a profound
work that is one of the legendary master’s best.
Val Caniparoli’s Swipe, complete with intricate
choreography that pulls from the world of hip-hop
as well as classical dance, returns with its
trademark causal cool. With the music of dueling
violins – a mash-up of the classical and electronic
music traditions – Swipe is a piece that pushes the
boundaries of contemporary dance.
Don’t miss Richmond Ballet’s West Point
performance – it promises to be an evening of
enjoyment, inspiration, and revelation.
This performance is made possible in part by a
grant from the Virginia Commission for the Arts
and the National Endowment for the Arts. Arts
Alive, Inc. would also like to thank the
governments of West Point, King William County,
and New Kent County as well as the Elis Olsson
Memorial Foundation and the Robinson Family for
their financial support.
Tickets for individual performances are $25 for
adults, $20 for seniors (65 and over), and $10 for
students. Season tickets are still available and
can be bought at a reduced price of $85 for adults;
$65 for seniors and $20 for students until
September 13. After September 13, season
tickets increase to $90; $75 and $25, respectively.
Tickets for are available by phone at 804-8433475, online, or email at [email protected]
Tickets will also be available at C&F Bank
branches in West Point, VA 2 weeks prior to the
show or at the door. Group rates are available at
$15 each for groups of 10 or more. For more
information, visit the Arts Alive website at
www.artsaliveinc.org.
Prior to the Richmond Ballet performance, the
Visual Arts Committee of Arts Alive will host an
opening reception at 6:00 pm for the Invitational
Exhibit featuring works by Baylor Nichols. Nichols
was born on the Eastern shore and has been
creating art for over seventy years. He has
received numerous awards including an Award of
Achievement at the Peninsula Fine Arts Juried
Exhibition in Newport News in 1986. This exhibit
can be viewed from September 13-November 11
in the exhibit area at the auditorium, and is open
during school hours by entering at the West Point
High School main entrance.
The Visual Arts Committee will also present an
Encaustics/Mixed Media workshop on
Wednesday, September 3 from 9 AM to 2 PM at
the West Point Library. The Encaustics/Mixed
Media workshop will be taught by Karen Eide, an
artist at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and is

painting techniques are combined with surface
embellishment, image transfer, incising, collaging
and creating marks and images with pastels,
markers and inks. This workshop cost $15.
Space is limited and fills quickly, so contact
Jeanette Wagner at [email protected] or

8 Foot Sturgeon Caught in Pamunkey
Volunteer Brennan Kelly holds the massive sturgeon that was caught, tagged, and released on August 14th. Photo courtesy VIMS – Pat McGrath
By Armistead Saffer
VIMS (Virginia Institute of Marine Science)
researcher, Pat McGrath caught an 8 foot
spawning female sturgeon in the Pamunkey
River in August. The fish weighed over 200lbs
and was tagged and released as part of a research program. The team is studying the protected species and trying to learn about their
spawning habits. The VIMS team uses nets on
the Mattaponi and Pamunkey rivers to catch and
tag the rare Sturgeon. This is the time of year
when the Sturgeon spawns. They need the help
of the local river goers to spot and report any
Sturgeon sightings or breaches. The breach is
impressive to witness. The fish come straight
out of the water and lands with a loud splash.
Keep your eyes on the rivers and report any
sturgeon breaches here: http://www.vims.edu/
