Dorothy Dickerson Tate to fill District 3 vacancy

“I have a deep love and concern for our county, [and] I would like to thank the Westmoreland County Board of Supervisors for selecting me to represent the citizens of District 3,” Dorothy Dickerson Tate told members of the local press following the four seated Board members’ Nov. 22 decision to appoint the Westmoreland native to fill the vacancy resulting from popularly elected District 3 Supervisor Lynn Brownley’s Oct. 20 resignation.
The supervisors met in recessed session at 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 22, and immediately acted on a county school division appropriations request. The current School Board budget’s facilities category received $200,000 in unexpended school division revenue. An additional $211,122.75 derived from non-levied sources was transferred from county government’s general fund to support the $411,000 roof replacement project at Cople Elementary School and to support repairs of a failing roof at the division’s transportation center.

Mudbog neighbors bring suit against Board of Supervisors

Attorney Jan Smith of Montross has brought suit against Westmoreland County’s Zoning Administrator, Board of Supervisors and mudbog operators Frank and Shelia Iannarelli.
Papers filed on Nov. 5 in the Westmoreland Circuit Court allege that the supervisors approved Iannarelli’s special exception request in a manner that violated state and county laws. Smith accordingly asks the court to deliver a finding that the board’s Oct. 13 action was fatally flawed and should be considered void from the onset.
Jan Smith represents mudbog neighbors Gerald and Sherry Fisher. In recent years the Fishers have repeatedly complained to members of the local government about noise and other disturbances resulting from what they characterize as inappropriate land use activities on Iannarelli’s land.

Hearing interpreter helps trial run smoothly

On Nov. 5, in the Circuit Court of Westmoreland County, James Whitney Harrison appeared for his trial before Judge Joseph J. Ellis.
Harrison, a short, round man with a beard like Santa Claus, was a familiar sight in Montross for a time, pushing his grocery cart with his worldly goods aboard.  Then he was arrested for destruction of property, attempted breaking and entering with the intent to commit a misdemeanor and attempted statutory breaking and entering.  It was not the first time he had been to court.

Brownley submits letter of resignation

Tension was building at the A.T. Johnson Building as the Westmoreland County supervisors came in one by one.  The county attorney was there.  People were beginning to fill up the chairs.  This was to be a meeting about what to do about the new drug conviction against Lynn Brownley, member of the board from the Third District.
Just as the meeting was about to start, someone handed Chairman W.W. Hynson a letter signed by Lynn Brownley, and sent by e-mail at 1:34 p.m., Thursday, October 28, 2010, the day of the board meeting, from Brownley to the office of the county supervisor.  It was addressed to the citizens of Westmoreland County, including the Board of Supervisors.
