Colonial Beach will miss Steve Swope

Drifter “Black & Gold” blood will forever flow through his veins — he pushed the envelope of success beyond its limits. Steve Swope is more than a sports icon, he is an American high school sports institution, and now that he has officially announced his retirement from the Colonial Beach school system, his tireless spirit will be embedded in the fields associated with Monroe Park, and the rattling rafters of the Drifter dome.

WEATHER DELAYS ROUTE 205 OPENING UNTIL MARCH 15

Snow, ice and rain delays paving of new bridge deck

FREDERICKSBURG— A combination of this week’s snow, ice and rain has delayed the final phase of work on the Route 205 bridge rehabilitation in Westmoreland County.

The bridge, which has been closed since early November 2012, was expected to reopen to traffic on Friday, March 8, however this week’s winter storm has caused a one week delay. Crews were scheduled to pave the bridge deck this week and open the bridge to traffic. Although conditions have improved, it has been determined that it remains too wet to place the final layer of asphalt on the bridge. VDOT construction officials indicate that paving under these conditions could lead to future pavement break-up and potentially cause an additional closing of the bridge.

Forecasters predict that the next few days will be dry and mild, which are ideal conditions for paving.

VDOT anticipates that the bridge will be open to traffic by Friday, March 15.

Attempted Robbery at Colonial Beach 7-Eleven

Police responded on scene at the Colonial Beach 7-Eleven last night after two unknown assailants attempted to steal one of the cash registers, according to Chief William Seay, shortly after midnight on March 8.
Heavy police presence surrounded the store for several hours while police questioned staff and reviewed surveillance tapes.
It was reported that the robbers came in and left on foot. So a King George K-9 was brought in to circle the block looking for any scent but, found nothing at around 12:30 a.m.
Colonial Beach Fire Department was called in around 1:30 a.m. for unknown reasons but was put back into service within minutes of arriving.
It was reported that no one was hurt during the event. No word on what was successfully taken.
