    • When Religious Freedom Was Dangerous
      By Bill Sullivan “A commitment to religious freedom is one of the most important achievements of the founding era precisely because it could be dangerous,” said James Sidbury, Andrew W. Mellon Distinguished Professor of Humanities at Rice University, in a talk at the Dewitt Wallace Museum. But dangerous to whom? Sidbury was a featured speaker during ... Cont […]
    • Throwback Thursday: The Bruton Parish Church
      Religion Month is a great time to revisit Bruton Parish Church  — a 300-year old structure that still operates as a modern Episcopalian parish. This distinctive brick building was completed in 1715 as the third Anglican church to serve the Virginia colony since 1660. Over the years, the congregation has featured such notables as George ... Continue Reading » […]
    • From the garden: A bounty of Brassicas
        We transplanted the cauliflower from the hotbed frame to the garden on Thursday last. The day was overcast with periods of rain; dripping weather as the gardeners say and the most eligible of conditions for transplantation. Still, we put the young cauliflowers under glasses to keep the wind off which is liable to lash them ... Continue Reading »
    • Why name one lamb? You helped us name all 11

    • Wrapping Up Religious History Month
      For the rest of April, Colonial Williamsburg will continue to celebrate religious history month. Any British colony was required to promote the Anglican Church as its official religion, stifling the practice of Presbyterian and Baptist dissenters, and forbidding that of Catholics and non-Christians.

Are you a civilian working on a naval base in Hampton Roads ? Your boss would like you to take a day off on March 23rd

During the week of March 19-24 emergency responders on Navy installations around the world will engage in Solid Curtain/Citadel Shield 2012, the largest force protection/anti-terrorism exercise on all naval bases and installations conducted in the continental United States

The service is asking civilian employees who work on base to stay home if they can on March 23, the day of the exercise that the Navy anticipates will include the extra security checks at base entrances. Some civilians are being encouraged to use vacation time that day while others will work longer days earlier in the week or telecommute.

Solid Curtain/Citadel Shield 2012 has been planned to have the lowest impact on the community and base personnel as possible, but there will be times of heightened alert when the aperture for base entry and exit will be tightened and there will be some disruption to the normal traffic flow.”

 

No details of the exercise could be publicized at this time in order to ensure that the exercise properly evaluates the base’s emergency readiness and capabilities during emergencies such as a terrorist attack on the base’s facilities and personnel.

“The task is to ensure that everyone here is safe, can enter and exit safely and perform as necessary in order to maintain the operations on base.”

What might be the most crucial time period is from noon on Thursday, March 22 through noon on Saturday, March 24 when  bases will be at its highest alert status. That is the time period when area traffic patterns are likely to be disrupted the most during the exercise

A series of mock drills are staged to resemble real-life emergencies during Solid Curtain/Citadel Shield throughout the region.

Military installations affected in our area include:
