Letter to the Editor: Thanks Stiers for community involvement

I have had the pleasure of working with my county supervisor Ron Stiers on several community concerns. The most recent was an abandoned house down the road from me. It had remained empty and partially burned for quite some time. After speaking with neighbors, we decided it was time to call Ron. I explained to him that this house had become a concern to our neighborhood, not only for the unsightliness, but also because of the possible health hazard. In less than a week after contacting Ron, the house was leveled and the lot cleared. Ron is a man of…

  • Letter to the Editor: Says Stiers’ actions merit vote for supervisor

    I was the president of Woodhaven Shores Property Owners Association in Oct. 2011 when a tornado ripped through our area. The tornado devastated our neighborhood, blocking roads and turning our lives upside down. A resident of Woodhaven informed me Ron Stiers’ reputation for community service. I called Ron, who wasn’t even a New Kent supervisor at the time, jumped into action and set up “Operation Love Thy Neighbor.” He secured the volunteer services of local, heavy equipment contractors and with the help of local residents and other community groups, we began massive clean-up. We spent 13 weekends bringing things back…

    Pinpoint serving accuracy helped New Kent’s Lady Trojans take control of and eventually finish off Tabb’s visiting Tigers in the teams’ Tuesday evening volleyball encounter. New Kent swept the Tigers in straight sets — 25-21, 25-12, 25-19 — raising the hosts’ record to 10-6. “We’ve worked on our serving a lot because at the beginning of the year it was somewhat erratic, but we’ve got more confidence now,” said Lady Trojan coach Cyndi Burnett. Three aces staked the hosts to an early 7-2 lead in the opening game. And when Tabb threatened to extend the match to a fourth game,…

    A flat start combined with the inability to return serves were downfalls in Charles City Lady Panthers loss to visiting West Point Tuesday night. The Lady Pointers posted scores of 25-8, 25-8, and 25-12 to take the Tidewater District contest. Not helping the hosts was a flat start at the beginning of the match. With the score knotted at six apiece in the first set, West Point orchestrated a 19-2 run behind the serving of Kylee Suedo and Brooke South. South accounted for a six-point scoring spree and Suedo finished off the set with nine straight points of her own….

  • Letter to the Editor: Says businesses, citizens benefit from work of Ron Stiers

    I want to voice my support for Ron Stiers for re-election in the race to the New Kent District 4 Board of Supervisors.
