Poquoson in the news...
     York County, Poquoson neighbors divided over dredging of Lambs Creek
Before an informal request to dredge Lambs Creek even makes it to the Board of Supervisors, it is already dividing residents along the creek that separates York County and Poquoson.

After the dredging proposal was made public, several residents came forward to oppose the idea because it might entail creating a special taxing district, which could raise their taxes. One person, Lee Riggins Rich of York County, opposes the project because she says dredging could kill her oysters and harm her commercial oyster business. Because Rich leases part of the bottom of Lambs Creek from the Virginia Marines Resources Commission, she could single-handedly block the dredging effort.

The few that oppose dredging could have a strong impact.

Ben Stagg, the head of VMRC's engineering and surveying department, said people with oyster ground leases would have to give permission before VMRC could issue a dredging permit.

Robert Carlon of York County, who is related to Rich and grows oysters for personal use on his family's leased land in the Poquoson River, said dredging likely wouldn't affect his oysters because his aren't at the bottom of the river. But he doesn't want to pay additional taxes.

"If the county has extra money in the budget and they want to cover it that is one thing but I am not in favor of increasing taxes because of dredging," Carlon said.

     New Kent all but clinches Bay Rivers wrestling title with wins over Poquoson, Smithfield
New Kent High won the Bay Rivers District wrestling title on Wednesday with dual meet victories over Poquoson and Smithfield, practically speaking at least.

Because the Trojans have seven more district duals to go, there's no way they can officially receive their sixth district championship trophy in eight seasons. But, considering the gap between the Trojans and the other seven Bay Rivers teams remaining on their schedule, the title is more a matter of when than if.

"That's the hope," Trojans coach Mike Faus said. "We don't want to disrespect the other schools, but we do feel this gives us the inside track.

The Trojans (6-1, 2-0 district), who finished third in the Group 3A state meet this past season, opened their district slate with a 40-25 win over Poquoson, which finished fourth in the 3A state tournament. They followed with an even more decisive 59-19 triumph over Smithfield, third last season in the 4A state tourney.

     Baseball America projects Chad Pinder to start for Oakland A's by 2018, he'll participate in Poquoson Baseball Benefit Golf Tournament on Dec. 29
Former Poquoson High baseball star Chad Pinder is rated the No. 7 prospect in the Oakland Athletics baseball organization in the most recent edition of Baseball America Magazine, which projects him to be the starter by 2018.

Pinder batted .288 with 15 home runs and 55 RBI this past season for the A's high Class A team in Stockton, California. The article said that Pinder is expected to play this year for Midland, Texas, the A's AA farm team.

The article also mentioned that Pinder's work in the weight room has led to improved power. Pinder, drafted in the 2nd round out of Virginia Tech in 2013, will get a chance to show that power off of the tee in the 1st Annual Poquoson Benefit Golf Tournament at the Kiln Creek Country Club on Dec. 29.

Pinder and former Poquoson teammate Kyle Crockett, a standout rookie this past season for the Cleveland Indians, are expected to be joined by New York Yankees prospect and Bruton High grad Mark Montgomery in the golf tournament. The best ball, four-player captain's choice event will begin at 10 a.m. at Kiln Creek.
