Award image smallPoquoson Girl Scout Earns Gold Award ... Poppy Crawshaw, daughter of Fiona and Michael Crawshaw of Poquoson, has earned the Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest honor and achievement in Girl Scouting. Poppy has been a Girl Scout for 12 years and is currently a senior at Poquoson High School. For her project, Poppy organized a seven-week basketball skills and drills camp that she hosted for 74 students at Sanford Elementary School in Newport News. She chose to run a camp at Sanford because the school has very few after school activities, and she wanted to provide an outlet for children to release stress, learn, play and be active. During the camp, Poppy and a team of volunteers that she organized taught the children basketball skills, including dribbling, passing and shooting. (Read the Article) (Have a Comment?)

Norment imagePoquoson Kiwanis Hosts State Senator Norment ...

Constitutional Corner: Jefferson's Wall ... On WFYL last Friday we broached the subject of the First Amendment with our intrepid hosts and commentators. It is a complex subject and I suspect we'll spend several more weeks discussing it. I encourage you to "tune-in" to future broadcasts at www.1180wfyl.com. In last week's column I mentioned the 1947 Supreme Court case of "Everson v. Board of Education" in which Justice Hugo Black established that there should be a "high and impregnable" "wall of separation" between government and religion, having lifted the "wall of separation" phrase from Jefferson's famous letter to the Danbury Baptists. Let's look closer at that letter. (See Page 8, Sept 25, 2014 Edition) (Have a Comment?)
