October Meeting and Info.

The York County Historical Society will meet October 6th 2008 at Providence United Methodist Church in Dare at 7:00pm. Tim Smith will be the speaker. We are now meeting every other month. Our next meeting after October will the the first Monday in December.
I am planning some sort of newsletter for the months that we do not meet. Tentively it will be called the " York-Poquoson Historical Times" Catchy title huh? I plan on including history,genealogy and anything dealing with the culture of York County and Poquoson such stories, recipes, hobbies and all.
I have a enought of my own material for two or three issues. I am going to ask Thelma Hansford if I can include some of her material in future issues.
I am going to need some help with this project. I am going to need material for this newsletter. Anything related to the history, genealogy or culture of York County and Poquoson would be welcome.
If you want to contact me, my new e-mail address is:

Sheriff's Office Radio mystery

Recently I bought a very expensive scanner is order to listen to my old outfit, the York-Poquoson Sheriff's Office. I found that one cannot listen to this organization due to some sort of enrcryption that makes it impossible to pick up on a scanner. Why is this necessary. Basically it is giving the public the indication that the department has something to hide. As a 24 year veteran, I know that this is not the case, the appearance is still there. I call on communications director Terry Hall to give a reason why York County's law-enforcement communications is not made public. Let the citizens of York County and the City of Poquoson hear for themselves what fine departments they have protecting them.
