Middle Passage Committee ceremony; Board of Building Code Appeals vacancies

Yorktown Middle Passage Committee to honor
African Ancestry on Memorial Day

May 13, 2013


     The Yorktown Middle Passage Committee will host a remembrance ceremony and wayside sign dedication on Memorial Day, Monday, May 27, at 8 a.m., to honor the 2,000,000 Africans who died in the Middle Passage and the 500,000 enslaved survivors and their descendants who helped build our nation.  The ceremony will last approximately 90 minutes and will include presentations and talks by representatives of the Upper Mattaponi Indian Tribe, historian Russell B. Hopson, Dr. and Mrs. P.B. Welbeck, local clergy, and the unveiling of the sign by Colonial National Historical Park superintendent Dan Smith.
     Since being contacted in January 2012 by Ann Chinn, executive director, facilitator, and founder of Middle Passage Ceremonies and Port Markers Project, representatives of York County and the National Park Service at Colonial National Historical Park have been conducting extensive research on a little-known but highly significant part of Yorktown history: the human slave trade. 
     In 1691, the Virginia Assembly established Yorktown as the main port of entry for Williamsburg, Virginia's colonial capital.  From 1698 to 1750, over 80 percent of imported Africans were disembarked on the shores of the York and Rappahannock Rivers with over 31,000 Africans entering the York River District between 1698 and 1771.
     For more than 350 years, approximately 12 million Africans were transported across the Atlantic Ocean.  A staggering two million died during the passage.  Of the 10 million who survived, at least 500,000 arrived between 1619 and 1860 in what is now the United States of America. 
     The Port Markers Project was established to honor the millions of Africans who perished in the transatlantic human trade voyages. The organization plans to hold remembrance ceremonies and place markers at 175 ports in North, Central and South America, the Caribbean, and Europe to remember all those who perished during the ocean crossings. Following a February 2012 meeting with Ms. Chinn, leaders of many local historical organizations were contacted to solicit their participation in forming a local committee to work with the Port Markers Project to recognize Yorktown as one of five major ports in Virginia, along with Fredericksburg, Hampton, Jamestown and Richmond, to acknowledge the lives and freedoms lost during that time in history.  As a result, the Yorktown Middle Passage Committee was formed.
     The Committee is co-chaired by Ms. Lois Winter, chairman of the York County Historical Committee, and Mr. William "Chris" Leonard, assistant professor, Scripps Howard School of Journalism and Communications at Hampton University. Other members of the Committee include:

• Edward Ayres, historian, Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation
• Wayne Dawkins, assistant professor, Hampton University SHSJC
• Diane Depew, supervisory park ranger, Colonial National Historical Park
• Edith M. Heard, Lemon Project/JCCT/BHS Alumni
• Russell B. Hopson, Surry Historical Society/AAHGS
• Joseph W. Jenkins, president, Surry African American Heritage Society 
• Louis Malon, director of preservation services, Preservation Virginia
• Sheryl K. Mays, director of public programs and operations, Historic Jamestowne
• David J. Meredith, community programs specialist, York County
• Liz Montgomery, president, Virginia African American Forum
• Amy M. Parker, senior planner, York County
• Cassie Phillips, Shiloh Baptist Church, African American Affairs Ministry
• Winston Phillips, Shiloh Baptist Church, African American Affairs Ministry
• Dan Smith, superintendent, Colonial National Historical Park

     This event is free and open to the public.  Comte de Grasse Street; Water Street between Comte de Grasse and Read Street; and the Yorktown beach between Comte de Grasse and Read Street will be closed to vehicular traffic between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m.  The Beach Picnic parking area, below the Yorktown Monument at the east end of Water Street, will be closed for event parking only during this same time and will reopen to the general public immediately after the ceremony.
     For more information about the ceremony, call (757) 898-0782.

Breitbart Breaking News: Corey Stewart Admits To Funding Mysterious Group Behind Mailers

Fellow Virginians-


Breitbart News just broke this story and it's a big deal. The headline reads:




If you remember, I am the CPA from Prince William County that sent you an email regarding my concern with the TEA Party Federation's endorsement of Corey Stewart for Lt. Governor. 

His FISCAL RECORD just isn't in line with the TEA Party's values and principles.  Scroll down to read my initial email about his tax record on the Board of Supervisors!

And now this story emerges!  We don't need these kinds of games in Virginia; DC is already overrun with them!

I have included the Breitbart article below and have included my in depth analysis of Corey's tax record below that.  More from me later!



John Gray, CPA
Prince William County Resident



On Friday night Corey Stewart, one of seven candidates seeking the Republican nomination for Lieutenant Governor in Virginia, admitted to a crowd of 50 Tea Party activists that he was not only "connected to" the mysterious Virginians for Limited Government (VLG) group that has paid for attack mailers on five of his opponents; he's also provided funding for the group.


Larry Nordvig, the Executive Director of the Richmond Virginia Tea Party who attended the Friday meeting, told Breitbart News on Monday that Stewart admitted his connection to VLG during a public question and answer period. Holding two of the VLG funded attack mailers in his hand, Nordvig described this back and forth he had with Stewart:


Nordvig Question: "Do you agree with these ads and did you have any connection to them whatsoever for the record?"


Corey Stewart Answer: "Am I connected? Yes. I have donated money to that organization."


Nordvig Question: "At least a couple of these candidates fought against these budget increases, specifically Steve Martin...The information on the flyer is not correct so this information is misleading. Will you do the right thing and publicly condemn these ads as false?"


Corey Stewart Answer: "No, I'm not going to do it. I play hardball. This is politics."


Sue Sadler, who is with a concerned citizens group in James City County and was present at Friday's event, told Breitbart News on Monday that "Nordvig's account is absolutely correct."


Carolyn Worssam, a member of the Richmond Tea Party, told Breitbart News on Monday "that sure is an accurate description of the conversation between Larry and Corey Stewart."


A third source, who is one of the 13,000 delegates to the convention that will select the Republican Party's nominee for Lieutenant Governor in Richmond on Saturday and was present at the Friday event, told Breitbart News on Monday "that's an accurate and balanced description" of the exchange between Nordvig and Stewart.


A fourth source, who was also at the meeting on Friday, told Breitbart News on Monday "that's completely accurate."


The meeting was held at Mimi's Cafe in Henrico, Virginia, near Richmond, and was moderated by Carol Stopps, a supporter of Mr. Stewart. Ms. Stopps told Breitbart News on Tuesday: "That was an accurate description of the conversation between Larry and Corey. Corey did not deny he knows the organization and contributed to the organization. In my opinion this is typical campaign material and there were no misstatements in the mailers."


Stewart's admission could be a violation of Virginia election law, which requires that independent expenditure political action committees not coordinate their activities with the campaigns of any candidates. It is unclear how much Stewart has contributed to VLG, since it has failed to file its Statement of Organization with the Virginia State Board of Elections.


The exact organizational structure of VLG remains unclear. On Monday the group changed its "about us" description on its website to say that it is a 501(c)4 tax exempt non profit corporation.


A search of Guidestar, the online source that provides information about non profit corporations that have received 501(c)3 and 501(c)4 tax-exempt status from the IRS shows no entry for "Virginians for Limited Government." By law, 501(c)4 organizations are prohibited from "primarily" engaging in political communications.


On Tuesday, Corey Stewart emailed this statement to Breitbart News: "Over the course of my life, I have supported and recommended several conservative organizations including the Family Foundation, Gun Owners of America, National Right to Work, Campaign for Liberty and Virginians for Limited Government to various people."


Stewart emphasized that neither he nor his campaign "had any coordination" with Virginians for Limited Government. "I am proud to support these like-minded organizations over the course of my political career," his email statement continued. "What these groups do, I have no control over.  Neither myself or my campaign have had any coordination with this group."







Virginia Republicans-


Hello, my name is John Gray and I have been a resident of Prince William County for 25 years, a small business owner, a self-employed CPA, and a COMMITTED fiscal conservative.  Anyone who knows me will tell you that I don't go around slinging lies and half -truths...that just isn't the way I operate.  I am emailing you today with the facts, and facts alone, because I am SICK AND TIRED with politicians getting away with covering the truth. I've been vocal about this for years in Prince William County (just ask anyone) but it's time to spread the message throughout the Commonwealth.  So I am emailing you today, the leaders in the Virginia GOP and conservative movements, to make sure you are all well informed.


The other day, I received an email about the TEA Party Federation's endorsement of Corey Stewart for Lt. Governor which stated that Corey has a  "...strong grasp of constitutional principles of limited government and individual liberty...".


I'm sorry, friends, but that just isn't true. In fact, the exact OPPOSITE is true.

It pains me to say this but I've got to be blunt.....


The Virginia TEA Party Federation has made a HUGE mistake endorsing Corey Stewart for Lt. Governor.


I have been following Corey's political career since he broke onto the scene in the early 2000's.  The glossy mailers and email rhetoric do not match up with his voting history in Prince William County.  How the TEA Party Federation never researched his voting record is beyond words - and I'm so very disappointed.  Worse yet, the TEA Party Federation has allowed Corey to LIE and get away with it. 


Don't believe me? I spent hours pulling the data on the attached chart to prove my claims.  Please see the chart below!

Note:  2013 Revenues are estimated, 2007 Corey elected Chairman of the Board


1.      Look at the chart, last column, every time Corey could have voted for a tax decrease, he voted No; every time he could vote for a tax increase he voted Yes (except FY 2012 - just before his announced for Lt. Governor)


2.     Since Corey Stewart has been elected (FY 2005 - FY 2013)

a.      Tax Rates have increased 12.4%

b.     Tax Revenues have increased 52.3%, in spite of the Great Recession!


3.     Since Corey Stewart has been Chairman on the BoCS (FY 2008 - FY 2013)

a.      Tax Rates have increased 52%

b.     Tax Revenues have increased 18.6%

c.      Keep in mind this time period was in the worst recession in history and Corey increased county revenues and taxes, clearly anyone can see there's NO CUT.


But in Corey's email the other day he writes, "I have cut $143 million from the Prince William County Budget, reduced taxes by 8.5%" - THIS IS A BOLDFACE LIE and I can't believe the TEA Party Federation has bought the lie.  Even the County Executive publicly admitted that this wasn't a budget cut!! It's black and white; it's in the public record.  If I can find it, why can't the TEA Party Federation?


There's more:


Lt. Governor Candidate Corey Stewart claims to have run a fiscally conservative county. Really?  Then why did he agree to spend $44 million in taxpayer money on a cultural arts center?  The TEA Party wants the government to focus on "core services".  Can any of you tell me that a cultural arts center --$44 million -- is a "core service" of government?


If that isn't enough, Corey sat back and allowed Board of Supervisors members to have access to slush funds - we conservatives in PWC call it, "walking around money", which they doled out most times to community organizations that could prove beneficial for them in future elections.  He didn't do a thing about these slush funds until some real PWC conservatives turned up the heat. Check here: http://www.jeffersonpolicyjournal.com/?p=1504


Since becoming Chairman of the Board, Corey has consistently strong-armed donations from developers who are looking for a favorable result from the Board.  Need money to renovate your baseball stadium?  Donate to Corey! The Potomac Nationals are one of his biggest donors - http://www.vpap.org/committees/profile/money_in_details/1931?donor_id=139528&end_year=2012&filing_period=all&lookup_type=year&start_year=2006 .  Coincidently, many of these donations came in at times when the baseball team was looking for county funds to renovate their fields. It's all black and white, it's easy to find.


Take a look at some of the donations that he's gotten over the years -- http://www.vpap.org/committees/profile/money_in_industry2/1931?end_year=2012&filing_period=all&lookup_type=year§or=15&start_year=2006 - as a Supervisor nearly $500,000 from the real estate/construction industry has gone to his Chairman's account over the last 7 years and according to VPAP over $233,000 in just 16 months from real estate/construction industry has gone to his Lt. Governor's account, http://www.vpap.org/committees/profile/money_in_industry1/2463?start_year=2012&end_year=2013&lookup_type=year&filing_period=all.  We conservatives in PWC call it "The Stewart Shakedown". 


There's so much more, but I have to ask, how could all of this be overlooked?


Corey doesn't understand what the TEA Party stands for and he certainly won't fight for the values and principles that they spend day and night fighting for!  This endorsement scares me.  I know that the TEA Party hasn't written off low taxes and fiscal responsibility from their platform.  I know that they are still fighting for those things.  That is why I don't know how the candidate that's least supportive of lower taxes and fiscal responsibility got the TEA Party Federation's endorsement!


I'm demanding this endorsement be retracted for the above-mentioned reasons.  I am so committed to fixing this injustice that I am pledging to spend the next several weeks leading up to the convention spreading the word about Corey Stewart and suggest you do the same.  Why?


Because Corey Stewart is a threat to conservatism and is dangerously close to fundamentally changing the Republican Party of Virginia into something that will hurt us fiscal conservatives for years to come.


For me, it's as easy as ABC - ANYBODY BUT COREY!

Colonial Williamsburg Teacher Gazette -- SPECIAL EDITION

MAY 2013


Evidence of Survival Cannibalism Discovered at Jamestown

JaneThe first scientifically-proven occurrence of survival cannibalism in Colonial America has been confirmed. Based on anthropological evidence, researchers believe "Jane", of European ancestry and about 14 years old, arrived in Jamestown in 1609, just months before the worst of the "starving time." Her partial skeleton was were recovered by Dr. Kelso and his team as part of the Jamestown Rediscovery Project. The markings on her bone fragments and forensic research have confirmed she was cannibalized. For more information about the find and the history of Jamestown, as well as a short, easy-to-understand video, visit the Jane site at Historic Jamestowne. More news articles about the find can be found in the Teaching Strategy.

Teaching Strategy: Starvation at Jamestown

In this lesson, students review the circumstances of the founding of Jamestown and the Starving Time. Then, in groups, students read a primary source quote that describes actions taken by the colonists to stay alive during the Starving Time. Finally, students explore the recent discovery of cannibalism during the Starving Time, the science behind the discovery, and what the discovery means for our understanding of early Jamestown.

Quotation of the Month

"Our men were destroyed with cruel diseases, as swellings, fluxes, burning fevers, and by wars, and some departed suddenly, but for the most part they died of mere famine. There were never Englishmen left in a foreign country in such misery as we were in this new-discovered Virginia. . ."

— George Percy, "Observations Gathered Out of a Discourse of the Plantation of the southern Colony of Virginia by the English, 1606," as quoted in Edward Wright Haile, ed., Jamestown Narratives: Eyewitness Accounts of the Virginia Colony, the First Decade, 1607–1617. Champlain, Va.: Round House, 1998), p. 98.

Middle Passage Project Lecture May 10

Middle Passage Project Executive Director to lecture May 10 
May 3, 2013


     The York County Historical Committee, in cooperation with the Yorktown Middle Passage Committee, is proud to present a lecture by Ms. Ann Chinn, Executive Director, Facilitator and Founder of Middle Passage Ceremonies and Port Markers Project (MPCPMP).   The presentation will be held in the Board Room of York Hall, 301 Main Street, Yorktown, on Friday, May 10, 2013, at 7 p.m. 
     The MPCPMP was established to honor the millions of Africans who perished in the transatlantic slave trade voyages.  The project plans to hold memorial ceremonies and place markers at 175 ports in North, Central and South America, the Caribbean, and Europe to remember all those who perished during the ocean crossing.
     "What is unique about the project is that it demands from each of us the personal acknowledgement of losses and contributions within the struggle to survive enslavement," she says. "No matter whether our relationship to the horror was as the victim, as the perpetrator, or as indirect beneficiary, it is a shared arc of history that needs to be physically marked. This project reinforces, and in some cases reestablishes, our humanity as we begin to honor our dead in the Atlantic."
     The Middle Passage Project will be coming to Yorktown on Memorial Day, Monday, May 27, and to Jamestown on Friday, August 23. 
     Between 1698 and 1771, over 31,000 Africans entered the York River District. Ceremonies will be held to honor the Africans who died in the Middle Passage and the enslaved survivors and their descendants who helped build this nation.
     Join us for this interesting and informative presentation, a prelude to the Yorktown and Jamestown events.  Ms. Chinn will also address the transformation of Africans that began to occur during the Middle Passage, before arriving in the Americas.  Ms. Chinn's work has included children and family advocacy with Washington, D.C. government and work as a retailer, textile artist, and organizer of a collective artists' market.  She has also written an extensive family history in collaboration with family members. 
     For more information about this lecture, call 898-0782.
