CBES Fire Drill not really a drill

 

Superintendent Dr Power and Vice Principal, Mr. Wright welcome Elementary Students back after fire officials give the all clear to return to school following a brief evacuation when the smell of gas was detected coming from the gymnasium.

 

New preschoolers at Colonial Beach Elementary School got a lesson in fire safety on their first day of school.
On Monday Jan. 4 10 students attended the new preschool program in Colonial Beach. By 10:30 a.m. the preschoolers were getting their first lesson in fire drills; but this one was not a drill. At around 10:30 a.m. school officials smelled gas in the gymnasium and in the attached building.
The school evacuated students located in the building attached to the gymnasium. Buses took children to the rescue squad building to wait for the all clear.
The Colonial Beach Fire Department responded and thoroughly checked the gym and the gas was shut off. It is unclear if gas was detected by meters.
The rest of the building is heated by a different heat source so children were allowed to return to class after a few hours.
Principal Newman was out sick, Assistant Principal Mr. Wright took charge of the evacuation and called School Superintendant Dr. Power who was at the school before the fire department arrived.
The preschool students were very excited about their first day and Wright said his students were really excited to be back as well.

baby, it’s cold outside

Seagulls wait out the weather in Colonial Beach. Though the National Weather Service didn’t have any data about how much snow fell in Westmoreland County, its unofficial reports show the Fredericksburg area had 15 inches and Warsaw had 10 inches. The Christmas Eve forecast calls for a wintry mix of precipitation and freezing rain is expected Christmas Day.

Colonial Beach road conditions

Lossing Ave. like all the other main roads on the Point in Colonial Beach is hard to navigate when two cars traveling in opposite directions meet.
 

Route 205 in Colonial Beach has been kept pretty clear since Friday evening, however the intersection of Rt. 205 and Colonial Ave has kept a good layer of slush which will most likely turn to ice as the sun sets. Caution should be used at this and all intersections around the beach.
 
The main streets on the point - Irving, Lossing, Bancroft, Marshall and Monroe Bay Ave. -  have been plowed to one lane but remain with at least three inches of packed snow and slush mix which will most likely turn to ice this evening. Streets running across the point from east to west are not plowed. Use extreme caution traveling on the River side of Irving Ave. as conditions are very icy on that side. Avoid Irving and Monroe Bay Ave. whenever possible till the snow stops and these roads are clear.

Giving back

Last year Peggy and David Miner were recipients of the Colonial Beach Eagles Christmas food baskets. Times were difficult then. But, fortunately, their situation changed for the better. This year, the Miners wanted to show how grateful they are.
Peggy called it their “giving back,” and so they did. Last Friday the Miners’ sons made a donation of $200 — $100 of that the boys earned through chores and good grades. Peggy and David matched it to come up with a generous donation for this year’s Eagles food basket distribution. Their “giving back” effort compliments the Eagles’ slogan of “people helping people.”
Ladies Auxiliary President Teresa King (left) looks on as the boys, Dylan, 5; Dustin, 9; Daniel, 11; and Damon, 12, offer their donation. Back row: Aerie Secretary Tommy Edwards, Peggy and David Miner and Joel Garlaneau, president of the Colonial Beach Eagles.
