I don't know why Jean is writing about this horror story all the way from St. Louis.

I live in Montross and can tell you this is not what "we citizens" want regardless of the jobs. I would welcome a "Walmart" before I let these "gun slingers" set foot in this town that was known as the "Best Small Town in Virginia".

Go look at this companies website and see what they are about to bring here. Not to mention the environmental concerns, the damage to the land, the wildlife and all the gun fire and explosives they will be playing with. Better yet read this article again about gun fire after hours.

I can't believe after being turned down in other Virginia Counties that our locals "the good ole boys" as you call them would allow them to set foot here and destroy the acreage backing up to a historical creek like the Nomini.

Look at your map and terra serva from St Louis and you will see what this partnership with our county "fools" are about to destroy.

After you read all about this mess our local government has got us in this time maybe you will send a letter retracting what you said. I would LOVE to see what you would do if they built something like this near your property.

After this camp is built your welcome to come to my porch for a "southern glass of ice tea" and listen to the gun fire during sunset hours.

You are an idiot why are posting from Beaverdam it is where your internet provider is pinging from. Talk about environmental concerns what about the cosmetic co that ruin the land behind the Mattuck building? Westmoreland County is full of Good Ole boys that is why nothing is built in this town Stan has control of the fast food. Why no other fast foods beside Stan Dairy Freeze and then we have the skateland which he also owns.
Westmoreland County is full of GOOD OLE' BOYS, starting with the sheriff and he crew.

So I suppose you live in Montross Jean with a St. Louis address? Well I do live in Montross and I'm not sure why Beaver Damn came up I'm less then a mile from this industrial park. Know all about Stan and the rest of them. Why are you writing from St. Louis MO.???

The citizens and land owners better get a handle on this mess and get our locals un-elected and start writing the local supervisors. This was shuffeld through not even the local papers have made a peep about it. So if you are from Colonial Beach you need to stir them up a bit up there because they are going to be driving through your town to get there, but if your a business owner you most likely will encourage it.

Question about the security firm that is establishing a Tactical Training Center to teach combat, marksmanship and defensive driving techniques.

Why is it people who complain about these Training Units being in their home town also usually are the ones who scream that the local law enforcement units are not trained well enough but don't want the training anywhere near them.

Thats like someone complaining about the noise from aircraft next to an Air Force Base, the sounds of Tanks from an Army base, the sounds of heavy ordenance from a Navy R&D base, etc.

But they want to be the first to be protected from bad things that go bump in the night?

Just doesn't figure.

I moved here for peace and quiet brings, wasn't looking for an AFB to live next to Dalhgren is bad enough. Police training academies are set up for training the locals and that is where they go.
Three other counties in the state have blocked these types and Westmoreland is going to be the fourth.

If you like living next to one then live there. My neighbors and I will be fighting this both the way it was done behind closed door without the public's knowledge and the environmental side of running off wildlife.

Watch and see there funding is already under attack internally and the finance group realizes a large group of local citizen don't want it that will end it.

Quick question LLW... How close will the school be from your home?

Would you actually hear the training going on?

Are there other residents who live closer?

I also apologize for some of my first assumptions. I did not realize that residents of Montross were being bottom dealt from a slick deck, so to speak. But it sounds like you are going about it the right way though… a grassroots involvement including other bottom dealt citizens.

Good Luck LLW

And yes there are training centers in different parts of VA… for example the Academy in Fredericksburg, and another out near Maidens VA… as tax payers your tax dollars are used to send the Deputies and other Law Enforcement officers to these training facilities. It would cost less of the tax payers dollars to have the training in-house, so to speak.

And yes I know what it is like... Have lived on or near AFBs, Army depots, and now live in CBVA, definitely with in ear range of the bases test rounds going down range.

GET A LIVE. People want things to help with the tax rates. The want things to come in the area to help with jobs. AS LONG AS IT IS NOT CLOSE TO YOU. People want power generating station to produce their electric as long as it is not along the river. What the HECK do you think they use for cooling. DAH Water. As long as YOU can get something out of it you are OK. Washington and Dullas Airport has been at the same location for years, people move next to the air port and BITCH about the noise. The power plant across from Dahlgren has been there since 1970. Now people move in and compalin about the plant. DID THEY NOT SEE THOSE 750 foot tall STACKS when the look at the house. How long has Dahlgren been shooting down river and testing the VERY weapons that are used SOMEPLACE else to help keep YOU FREE to live and do much of what you do. There are other placed in the world to live that is much worse that in Montross, Colonial Beach, Dahlgren. When you turn on your lights at night, hear a bang during the DAY LIGHT HOURS from Dahlgren or hear some policeman shooting his weapon to sharpen his skills STOP and think how luck you are to live in Montross, Colonial Beach or Dahlgren USA.

Ok Smart #*&^@*!Person....here is the scoop....This O'Gara thing will be beaten and they will not build in Montross, because the people don't want it.

These types of "school" groups have been trying to get on A-1 property disguised as a school which they are not, all over rural Virginia. Thankfully most citizens who have more common sense then you have turned them away each time, because they don't want noise and water pollution and other environmental concerns. It "aint" like Dalgren blowing stuff on occasion or AFB's landing a couple of jets now and then. This is fire and car racing at any hour they choose day or night. There is an appeal in the VA Supreme Court currently by Stafford County Va where the sister company Kroll is trying to shove one of these training camps down the citizens throats there, so read the Free Lance Star articles regarding that if you can understand them. Our local newspaper is scared to print anything negative about the camp, so you have to read the FLS or the Journal where people are not afraid to print anything. Maybe they would print article by you "blowing it off" as a new tax base opportunity or not a big deal to live around. I grew up next to Andrews AFB my family owned part of land in the 1940's that was sold to them, don't live there any longer and your right it wasn't a big deal when there wasn't that much traffic. People move here for a better way of life and the water front homes on my creek will "blow away" any tax base generated by the O'Gara group as my guess they already got their loop holes lined up as they made over 20 mil last year, some "school". You live where you want, noise, smoke stacks included, I was here first and they "aint" coming here behind me....LLW

Judging by the back and forth between LLW and Jean I dont think Ogara ever had a thing to worry about if they were the opposition. I doubt either one of them could poor piss out of a boot with the directions on the heel.
