Eye Sore At Old Happy Clam Lot

The barge was moved months ago; the lot cleaned up and posted. Now we need the area marked VDOT with arrows across the road and the accompanying sinkhole repaired before the road caves in! Wait... Doesn't Town have control of the roads? JEEBUS.  (Saturday Aug 29 | post #17)

Colonial Beach Boat Ramp Dangerous

The Town just got a grant... Citizens now have a very pretty colored concrete crosswalk at the Meeting Hall. Done at night, without any fanfare. Now look at the sidewalk in front of said Meeting Hall... Public Works cannot clean grass from the dang sidewalk, but we have a pretty crosswalk! This is bass-akwards, and you think they will put $$$Money into something necessary - like repairs to the Boat Ramp? How 'bout Town Hall? The old Police Station? They're rotting to the ground. Give it 6 months and PW will be digging our pretty walkway up to repair our failing Sewer System.  (Tuesday Aug 25 | post #6)

cleared area along 205 going in to colonial beach

It's Timber Farming and/or Clear cutting - It's the harvesting wood; clear cutting can also be used to create land for farming. They sell the lumber, and if so desire, farm the land. usually it's left fallow and the scrub leftover allows for vegetation regrowth.  (Jul 24, 2015 | post #2)

Need help

For both it would be Zoning - A nuisance for the hoarding and against the zoning rules for the pool.  (Jul 12, 2015 | post #3)

School

My, you are on a soapbox. Here are the FACTS: I believe NONE on CBTopix are stupid enough to believe education is FREE. Education here is personalized... If this system is so personal, and caring, why has the BOARD subjected the CHILDREN to this fired shell for 18 months? Inspection of the building revealed other damages from lack of maintenance, then said SBoard ALLOWED students & employees into an unSAFE condemned building (brilliant!). SAID condemned building contained ILLEGAL HAZMAT items, which accelerated its burning. Building was apparently unSECURE as 3 young adults in the building and charged with arson etal. Sadly teachers / students are PAYING for the horrid choices of the SBoard. The lack of oversight for the most basic of building maintenance, the safety of the children and employees, has fallen to the point of "ANYONE ELSE can do it better than the SCHOOL BOARD of CBEACH".  (Jul 7, 2015 | post #4)

Denson's Grocery? Everyone should be alerted!

Just a thought...

Lossing - I'm pretty much on board with the majority of what you've stated - as there's only two entry points to the Town, this would not be too hard to implement. Come to think of it, run for the local council. Your common sense would flabbergast 'em. Thank you!  (Jun 26, 2015 | post #2)

Blevins Law Suit

Mind your own business??? what a JOKE. It is 'our business' - each taxpayer is paying for the defense, insurance and overhead to cover this fracas through their real estate and personal property taxes.  (Jun 20, 2015 | post #3)

Parade Tate Memorial

I am not the one who wrote "they had to cause they are black and white America is afraid to say no.........." it IS an IGNORANT statement. How do my beliefs play into your wacked-out skewered "continue to be proven wrong everyday, while the youth continue to bleed" comment? My statement was that liability aside, the youths who honored their friend in a parade have a RIGHT to do so. Their choice, was perhaps too much - the bikes - but it was CONSTRUCTIVE. More than I can say for the thoughts in your void. Name calling? you need to look up the definition of "idiots" .  (Jun 15, 2015 | post #10)

Parade Tate Memorial

A portion of your post may be true, however, the remainder is the most IGNORANT of the posts I have seen from you SIRRAH. 'They' did NOT have to do anything because of anything. A group presented themselves to the coordinators of the parade and they were allowed to march, or in the case, bike. Yes, the liability etal should have been looked into. But to bring RACE into something so simple as to marching in a parade? To, no matter what is thought, honor a friend. You'd rather them be out in the county, acting nefariously? Plain Ignorant, blatantly racist are you.  (Jun 15, 2015 | post #8)

While everything you said is true - your statements on Merita hints you are in need of counselling... You seem to have it in for that brand.  (Jun 12, 2015 | post #12)

Memorial Day Weekend

Monday was a HOLIDAY. Our taxpayer needs have been ...oh just LEFT. Do you think (if you DO think) overtime would be paid for upkeep? If anything they're saving up for the bare bones that will clean up after the Fest... By the way, I never saw a deed transfer for it becoming "YOUR" Town...  (Jun 6, 2015 | post #9)
