Editorial: What I want to see happen in Charles City and New Kent in 2019

By Andre Jones | December 25, 2018 11:59 pm

As the year 2018 comes to a close, I want to thank everybody who has supported the Chronicle. Whether it’s through advertising, submissions, being a location where the paper can be picked up or picking up the newspaper itself, thanking you is the least that the staff of the New Kent-Charles City Chronicle can do. As I have written editorials for over the last 18 months or so, I decided that this one should be about self-reflection and the future; but not from my standpoint, but from the views I’d like to see both Charles City and New Kent County…

During the holidays, it is a good time to remind our citizens how fortunate we are to live and raise our children in New Kent County. It is a time when we need to stop and reflect not only on the joy of the Christmas season, but take time to fully appreciate our amazing New Kent law enforcement officers who unselfishly give their time. Their participation in the recent “Cops who Care” event was just one example of their humility and dedication to our county. The children showered them with hugs and smiles and truly know that they are to…

Editorial: Little things that help me and subliminally affects others

By Andre Jones | December 19, 2018 9:19 am

When a person encounters me, there are certain things I say or do with them and I do it for a specific reason. These are traits of my personality that help me along my day, but also subliminally helps others, especially the younger generation. I started these because I was coaching, and I continue doing these things to this day because they also help me have a better day and keep my memory fresh but at the same time, teaches lessons to others even though they’re not recognizing it. So, I thought I’d share a few things with you to…

Editorial: True MVPs- Many Volunteering Parents

By Andre Jones | December 12, 2018 10:33 am

While the acronym MVP usually stands for “Most Valuable Player”, I believe a more appropriate usage of those letters should be “Many Volunteering Parents.” Parents (or guardians) are consistent in keeping our youth involved with many activities in Charles City and New Kent County. I can remember my mother taking me to youth baseball practice and at the games, she was the scorebook keeper. There are times where it rained during a game and she had to deal with six or seven rumbustious boys piled in a black van. Those moments stand out because my mother did those things in…
