Trees down across the Drive and many hanging limbs that will have to be removed throughout the Park. North of mile 15 particularly hard hit! We'll keep you posted on our progress! ...

I want a annual federal budget holiday. In recognition of Congress passing an annual budget. As we pass the annual budget it can be increased to a biennial event.

Just out of curiosity, why do the government offices close for Lee Jackson Day, but the schools do not?

so was the no school today?

I know we're supposed to do good deeds on Monday, but what do we do today? What is there to celebrate about enslavers seeking to destroy our nation and losing?

County of Warren, VA-- this information is inaccurate. You've reproduced the Winter Storm Warning statement applying to Prince William & Fauquier Counties. The Winter Storm Warning statement for Warren, Shenandoah, Page, Rockingham, etc. says our warning is in effect from 10 AM Saturday to 1 PM Sunday, and that "Total snow accumulations of 4 to 8 inches [are] expected." https://forecast.weather.gov/wwamap/wwatxtget.php?cwa=lwx&wwa=winter%20storm%20warning

So I get a new one for free right?

How about replacements if you cannot successfully relocate the sticker? Is it still $32 for a 20 cent sticker?

Last I knew it was $1 or $2 or close to it for a replacement.

Brian Mullen

They sent out stickers with taxes in June for all mine.

Is it a requirement to have one? I’ve heard some say yes and some say no. Just curious

What happens if I don't move the sticker?

Not entirely true. Headlight sensor in the middle. Wait for new va stickers beginning new year.

I hate having the stickers there.

We sold our car. When should we get another sticker? Also one of them got thrown out accidentally.

The South Fork of the Shenandoah River is currently at major flood stage near Lynnwood, VA up-river from Warren County (east of Harrisonburg, VA), and is expected to recede today. Locally, the South Fork of the Shenandoah River at Front Royal is approximately 11 feet and is forecasted to rise to 15 feet (moderate flood stage) sometime later today. Currently, the North Fork is approximately 12 feet (above action stage), and Passage Creek is approximately 6 ½ feet (remaining below action stage of 8 feet).

Recommend appropriate actions by those residents, businesses, and County facilities that may be located in the flood plains along the North and South Fork of the Shenandoah River.

From the Warren County Office of Emergency Management:

Hurricane Florence, now a Category 1 storm, is moving toward the west northwest at 6 mph (9 km/h); the center of hurricane is located in the Atlantic Ocean approximately 25 miles East Southeast of Wilmington, North Carolina. On the forecast track, the center of Florence will move near or over the coast of southern coast North Carolina and eastern South Carolina in the Hurricane warning area today (Friday).

Current National Weather Service modeling projects the storm to move in a westerly direction once it makes landfall, moving across South Carolina and towards the Georgia – Tennessee border; local rainfall estimates for Warren County and the surrounding region are 2 to 6 inches. Then, sometime Monday, the storm is predicted to turn to the north in a post-tropical state, and continue moving north through Wednesday along the Appalachian ridge in a line from Tennessee to New Hampshire.

While we do not expect any direct impacts from Hurricane Florence, we may experience localized flooding, downed trees, and power outages due to current ground saturation and conditions associated with the storm. The Emergency Operations Center at the Public Safety Building and the primary emergency shelter at Skyline High School are closed at this time; the County is prepared to open them if conditions warrant. Warren County Emergency Management officials will continue to monitor the course and potential impacts of this storm over the weekend and into next week, and provide updates as appropriate.

From the Warren County Office of Emergency Management:

Hurricane Florence, now a Category 2 storm, is moving toward the west northwest at 12 mph (20 km/h); the center of hurricane is located in the Atlantic Ocean approximately 170 miles East Southeast of Wilmington, North Carolina. On the forecast track, the center of Florence will approach the coasts of North and South Carolina later today, moving into the Hurricane warning area along the coast tonight and Friday. Life threatening storm surge is likely along SC and NC coastlines. A storm surge warning is in effect for portions of coastal Virginia. The rainfall could produce catastrophic flash flooding and significant river flooding.

Current National Weather Service modeling projects the storm to move in a westerly direction once it makes landfall, moving across South Carolina and towards the Georgia – Tennessee border; local rainfall estimates for Warren County and the surrounding region are 2 to 4 inches. Then, sometime Sunday, the storm is predicted to turn to the north in a post-tropical state, and continue moving north on Monday and Tuesday up into West Virginia. This is when we could expect higher than usual amounts of rainfall to occur. As such, all residents are urged to be prepared for localized flooding, downed trees, and power outages due to current ground saturation and wind conditions associated with the storm.

While we do not expect any direct impacts from Hurricane Florence, the County continues to take prudent actions to prepare for the indirect effects of the storm. The Emergency Operations Center at the Public Safety Building and the primary emergency shelter at Skyline High School are closed at this time; the County is prepared to open them if conditions warrant. Warren County Emergency Management officials will continue to monitor the course and potential impacts of this storm over the weekend and into next week, and provide updates as appropriate.

From the Warren County Office of Emergency Management:

The latest NWS predictions have Florence making landfall near the NC/SC border around 08:00 this Saturday morning. The storm is predicted to make landfall, then stall and head west towards Tennessee; we can expect 2 to 6 inches of rain locally over the weekend. Then, forecasters predict the storm will hit the Appalachians and then turn to the north and back to the east over Northern Virginia as the remnants of Hurricane Florence head out to sea sometime next week. This is when we should reasonably expect the worst local effects of the storm.

As such, please continue to be prepared for localized flooding, downed trees, and power outages due to current ground saturation and weather conditions associated with the storm. Warren County Emergency Management officials will continue to monitor the course and potential impacts of Hurricane Florence and provide local updates as appropriate. Thank you for your attention and readiness regarding this storm.

Hurricane Florence Update, Warren County, VA
Wednesday, September 12, 2018 at 08:30

Hurricane Florence is moving toward the west northwest at 17 mph (28 km/h); the center of hurricane is located in the Atlantic Ocean approximately 785 East Southeast of Cape Fear, North Carolina. A turn toward the northwest is forecast to occur late Wednesday night. The storm is expected to approach the coast of South Carolina or North Carolina late Thursday afternoon into Friday morning while slowing down. Life threatening storm surge is likely along SC and NC coastlines. A storm surge warning is in effect for portions of coastal Virginia. The rainfall could produce catastrophic flash flooding and significant river flooding. Impacts to portions of the Commonwealth from tropical storm force winds could start as early as Thursday 8:00 AM.

Current National Weather Service modeling projects the storm to move in a westerly direction once it makes landfall, moving across South Carolina and towards Tennessee. While this is welcome news to Warren County and the surrounding region, it is still too early to predict the exact course of this very dangerous storm. Forecasts indicate Florence will slow considerably or stall causing total local rainfall accumulations of 4 to 10 inches. As such, all residents are urged to continue to prepare for localized flooding, downed trees, and power outages due to current ground saturation and wind conditions associated with the storm. Warren County Emergency Management officials will continue to monitor the course and potential impacts of Hurricane Florence and provide local updates as appropriate.

The Warren County Office of Emergency Management has been monitoring the potential impacts and is encouraging residents to begin preparing for this weather event and building an Emergency Kit.Hurricane Florence Update The Warren County Office of the Fire Chief and Office of Emergency Management have been monitoring the potential effects of Hurricane Florence to our area. Florence is expected to make landfall as a significant and dangerous hurricane that will impact our area through high winds and potentially heavy rain fall. In response to this storm, Governor Northam has declared a state of emergency for Virginia in advance of Hurricane Florence. "It is never to early to start the planning process for this type of event" stated Fire Chief Richard Mabie,"hurricanes are a serious threat to our area through the effects of flash flooding, river flooding, tornadoes, wind damage and prolonged power outages." Citizens should make preparations: build an emergency kit (http://vaemergency.gov/emergency-kit), fill vital prescriptions, make a family emergency communication plan, check on neighbors and friends and exchange contact information, keep your vehicle’s gas tank at half a tank or more, clear gutters and drains near your residence, photograph the current condition of your property, including your vehicle and gather critical documentation and consider storing a copy on a secure, virtual cloud based service.

The Warren County Department of Fire and Rescue Services has released conceptual artistic renderings of the future replacement fire and rescue station for the Rivermont area. Check them out!The County of Warren, VA, Department of Fire and Rescue Services and the Rivermont Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department is excited to release the conceptual artist renderings of the future replacement fire and rescue station for the Rivermont area of Warren County. This 15,250 square foot facility will offer 3 drive through bays, overnight accommodations (currently lacking in the existing facility) and additional support space to support the countywide fire and EMS response system and volunteer station needs for a projected 50 year life span. This facility will also offer a community meeting space which will also serve as the Fork District polling/voting location and fundraising space for the volunteer organization. This joint capital improvement project has been developed to meet the critical needs of the Rivermont Community and to address the safety concerns of the deteriorating conditions of the existing station. The needs of the Fire and Rescue operations have vastly outgrown the existing station which is not adequate to support career staffing or overnight volunteer staffing activities. This project has been ranked as priority #5 in the approved 2018-2019 Capital Improvement Plan and priority #5 of the 2018 Warren County Board of Supervisors Goals, Projects and Programs List. We looking forward in working with our community and elected officials in making this project a successful one. For additional information contact the Office of the Fire Chief at 540-636-3830. ...

So glad the outcome was positive for the FRGC to stay open. Just hope they will continue to improve on the care of the fairways and greens. It was in such great shape in the spring and the concession stand was still serving good hamburgers. Now any reason they can't market the large room for rentals and let private catering in to assist in private parties. Just a thought!!

The Honorable William H. Sharp, Presiding Judge of the Warren County Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court, is the recipient of the 2018 Harry L. Carrico Outstanding Career Service Award.

Awarded in honor of the longest chief justice and the longest serving member in the history of the Supreme Court of Virginia, the Harry L. Carrico Outstanding Career Service Award is presented annually by the Judicial Council of Virginia to a Virginia judge who, over an extended career, has demonstrated exceptional leadership in the administration of the courts while exhibiting the traits of integrity, courtesy, impartiality, wisdom and humility. All appellate, circuit and district court judges are eligible for nomination.

Judge Sharp has served on the bench in the 26th Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court since 1994, and was Chief Judge from 1998 to 2007. He currently sits in Warren County, Winchester City/Frederick County and Harrisonburg City/Rockingham County. Judge Sharp is a Past-President of the Virginia Council of Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court Judges (VCJDRDCJ). He is the lead judge for the Warren County Foster Care Best Practices Team, and member of the Frederick/Winchester Best Practices Team. He has previously served as chairman of the State Advisory Committee on Child Support Litigation and the VCJDRDCJ Support Committee. He is a past member of the Law Revision Committee and the Domestic Violence Fatality Review Advisory Group.

Before being appointed to his present position, Judge Sharp was a substitute judge for eight years and worked in private practice and in the Office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney in Front Royal, Virginia. He graduated from Yale College in 1974, and received a J.D. degree from the Marshall-Wythe School of Law of the College of William and Mary in 1977.

Here are some of the remarks from colleagues who nominated him:

--Judge Sharp is truly a scholar of the law but utilizes his keen intellect in a way that is readily understood by both the veteran lawyer as well as the unrepresented litigant. His command of Virginia law is unparalleled and he combines that wisdom with courtesy, integrity and humility in his court room.

--Judge Sharp is well known among his peers for his support of new judges, his knowledge of the depth and breadth of the law, his willingness to serve in any capacity to enhance the administration of justice, his good humor, calm and polite demeanor, and his unfailing with in times of stress. He is the epitome of what we expect of a good judge – Bill is devoted to making sure that every case, every litigant, and especially every child has a voice that is heard with the courtroom.

--His leadership, integrity, courtesy, impartiality, wisdom and humility far exceed the normal traits seen in any human. Calls to [Judge Sharp] letting him know that he has to be on the bench early in the morning (and 30 minutes away) to hear a neglect case due to time restrictions, are never met with a sigh or admonishment, but rather a “yes, I can do that” reply. Many are the nights that he stays in court, hearing cases involving children and adults, whose very lives are hinging on what decision he renders, all of which he takes with great seriousness and thought, while being ever mindful of the law. Sometimes that balance is very difficult, but he manages it with kindness, fairness and by applying his broad knowledge of the law.

Congratulations, Judge Sharp!

Well-deserved. Judge sharp is generally the smartest man in any room he occupies.

A necessary evil of my job (and by far the part I dislike most) is court testimony. Although thankfully not as frequent as it once was, I still have to appear a few times a year. I have never encountered a courtroom as well run and cordial as Judge Sharp’s. When I think of the character traits that make for a good judge, I can think of no better encapsulation than Judge Sharp. Truly a well-deserved honor!

Congratulations! I know of no one more deserving.

Congratulations Judge Sharp

Congratulations, a well deserved honor to a great public servant and man!

Absolutely well deserved. Congratulations, Judge Sharp! It is an honor to get to practice law in your Court.

Well deserved and well respected! Congratulations !!!

Congratulations to Judge Sharp. I had no idea he's your brother. I never met him; he's in another part of Virginia. But I heard of him when I was working for Virginia Dept.of Social Services in the Division of Child Support Enforcement. I am well-aware that juvenile and domestic relations is a very sensitive and taxing area of law. This world is getting smaller and smaller.

Congrats and well deserved. Such a caring and hard worker. I learned a lot from Judge Sharp and what an honor to spend many years working with him.

Congratulations Bill!! Well deserved indeed.

What a nice tribute, and career honor for a well-deserving Judge! Congratulations to the Honorable William Sharp!

Congratulations

Congratulations Sir

I'll bet your dad is beaming with pride! Hugs to you, and your dad and mom <3

Congratulations!

Congratulations ! Truly a well deserved honor

That’s awesome! And he is VERY close to me in VA! Next county over

The one on fairground is even worse. They both need fixing

Sorry for the long post.... but this is a copy of the email that I sent to the county per their request. Feel free to copy it. In response to your Facebook request for public comments. As a 14 year resident of Rockland, I have seen this railroad crossing in various conditions. It appears that the railroad must have it in their budget to replace asphalt at this crossing every couple of years, because that's what they do. The crossing itself has been one track and smooth and one track and rough. The crossing has been 2 tracks and smooth and 2 tracks and rough. The tracks themselves are not the issue as the railroad would like us to believe. The problem is the personality of the crew they happen to send to do the work. If the very similar crossing at Happy Creek/ Dismal Hollow can be smooth as glass, then why not this one? I'll tell you why. Because the problem is deeper. The railroad WANTS the state to add a crossover bridge for vehicles at very little cost to the railroad and a huge cost to the taxpayers, so they can lollygag in and out of the inland port without concern about blocking the roadway. A private company is bullying us to do what is best for them AT OUR EXPENSE. Many people will offer a complaint without a solution. I'm not that guy. I have a solution as well. Instruct the Sheriff's department to start enforcing the county code by ticketing the persons responsible for blocking the crossings for extended periods and putting our safety in jeopardy. Tell Norfolk Southern we are not building THEIR BRIDGE and to smooth out the pavement before another car loses control and crashes into the entrance at Rockland Park. In the very immediate future, install warning signs at the crossing to alert unsuspecting drivers to the danger. This has gone on long enough. Stop playing money games with our safety. Sent via the Samsung Galaxy S7, an AT&T 4G LTE smartphone

Good lord we need a bridge over it! It’s ridiculous to have to wait or god forbid that wait in an emergency situation cases a death!

It definitely needs to be fixed. The other near Ferguson is bad too. You almost have to come to a complete stop to not have your transmission fall out.

Time delays can be most annoying and interfere with emergency services.

It’s so rough! Going across feels like a bad roller coaster!

I think despite it being a good traffic control, it does need some improvement. Even going 10mph, you still get thrown around.

They should look at how the tracks are done in Woodstock on West Reservoir Rd. Looks to be steel plates and not rough at all.

Once elected sheriff of Warren County I pledge to make all railroad crossings smooth. I will also position a deputy at both fairgrounds road and Rockland Road 24/7 to push stopped trains off the roads. This measure will save taxpayers 3 million dollars.

It used to be smooth when they first added the second track

My grandchildren sleeping get rocked back and forth till they wake up. The slower I go the more I rock. Please fix this! Thank You

I've not had a problem. If you stop before crossing and don't drive across like it's a race track there isn't a problem.

Trains blocking the intersection for long periods of time. That happens to all the crossing in the county. Emergency vehicles can't get thru. Resident's sitting for half an hour or more because of it. Warren J Le Compte III, Derek Mabie, Steve Collins anything to add?

Now that Rockland Park is becoming more well-known and enjoyed, there will be more traffic crossing the train tracks there. Many of the park's visitors will be tourists, parents with small children in the cars, or other folks who might not be used to the RR crossing or possibly a bit distracted. So, for safety reasons, I think this crossing should be made into either a road overpass or underpass; it would be MUCH safer!

I hate going over that crossing! I’ve tried slow, fast and in between. Shakes the baby up every time! 🙁

Virginia makes sure they tax everyone out the who ha so yes I do expect railroad crossings to be smoother than this. And no someone shouldn't have to move counties if they don't like it. Ridiculous.

I'm not a paving specialist, but I would imagine this would not require a rocket scientist to do. Instead of seeking public input, all the county needs to do is ask the Park Rangers who come to Rockland Park.

Crossing is one of the worst I’ve seen ever! This must be fixed! It can easily damage unsuspecting cars traveling at even slow speeds. The County should not accept this from Norfolk Southern. This crossing is so bad that I’m not sure why they are asking for comments...it’s self evident it needs to be fixed.

This crossing is smooth compared to the one on Fairground Road. I can’t imagine there is enough traffic on the Rockland crossing to warrant an $8-10 million bridge?

The railroad has too much power yet they don't take care of their own crossings as they should. Yes, it needs to be fixed...along with the one on Fairground Rd.

There is a post about this in the Rockland community group. I've personally spoken to Norfolk southern multiple times

Those tracks are absurd. I’ve seen so many people bottom out. You almost have to come to a standstill to cross without an issue.

Over the years responsible efforts have been made to correct this R/R Crossing. ... It appears to be a difficult task ... Perhaps a more intensive and in depth rehab is required... Peace✌️

I hate going over this track it it is so ruff that you almost get thrown out of the car. Please fix it

Causing frames to tweak on people’s vehicles substantially. This crossing is one of the worst for the amount of space you have around that track you should be able to fix it ... add some pavement and build that road up flush with the track.

The Warren County Department of Fire and Rescue Services has had its own intern this summer in the Emergency Management Office - Elizabeth "Liz" Adams. Liz was born in Fairfax County, Virginia and moved to Front Royal with her family when she was two years old. She graduated high school in 2013 and attended Lord Fairfax Community College for two years before transferring to George Mason University, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Government and International Politics. While at GMU, she was a member of Pi Beta Phi Fraternity for Women as well as Pi Sigma Alpha, the National Political Science Honor Society. She also participated in two short, governmentally-focused study abroad trips which affirmed her desire to work in a government capacity.

After graduating college, she began working on her Master’s Degree in Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness from Virginia Commonwealth University, where she will be starting her second year in the fall. She is also interested in earning an Emergency Medical Technician certificate after completing her Master’s Degree to be able to give back to her community. This summer, Liz has been helping to revise the County’s Emergency Operations Plan, which is a set of guidelines for managing emergencies and preventing the loss of life and property.

When asked about her internship, Liz said “Warren County is a place near and dear to me, so I love the opportunity to help it. In the field of Emergency Management, attention usually is given to FEMA, who is important and necessary. However, one of the principles of the field is that emergencies are managed at the lowest possible level, which is most often local government. I value this summer as a way to see how that is actually done.”

Rounding out the County's summer interns is Nelson Morgan who has been working with the County Attorney's office. Originally from Rockbridge County, Virginia, Nelson started working at age 12 when he applied for a work permit to be a bagger at Kroger and has been in the working world ever since. He knew he wanted to study the law from an early age after seeing Paul Newman’s performance in "The Verdict". His high school ran an internship program geared towards vocational placements, and he was the first student in the history of the program to request a legal internship. Having never placed a student in a legal internship, Nelson’s guidance counselor encouraged him to find one for himself. He visited nearly every law office in the area until he found an office in Lexington, Virginia which “liked his moxie.” He spent the semester doing title research and letter dictation and was hooked!

After graduating high school in 2008, Nelson went to Dabney S. Lancaster Community College in Clifton Forge, Virginia where he joined the student government and formed the first student activity board at the satellite campus in Buena Vista, Virginia. He organized several student festivals and recruitment fairs to encourage others to take advantage of the low cost, quality education provided at Virginia’s community colleges. After receiving his two year degree, Nelson transferred to the College of William and Mary where he graduated in 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Government. He spent the next four years working as a legal assistant in Charlottesville and Waynesboro, Virginia. In 2016, he returned to Lexington to continue his study of the law at Washington and Lee University where he is about to start his third year.

When asked to comment on his internship, Nelson said, “Working with the County Attorney’s Office this summer was my first foray into the world of local governance. It continues to be a wonderful experience. Working with Dan Whitten encouraged me to consider a career as a County Attorney. I have lived in smaller communities my whole life, and I find it rewarding to be an integral part of my community and its most representational level of government.”
