Stafford County history

I spent some time here sitting in a traffic jam yesterday at the Falmouth light, and realized I don’t remember ever noticing this building before. Apparently it’s an important bit of the history of Old Falmouth Village: an African-American church just outside the officially designated historic district.

Election Day

John & Lois Steiner, Vance Corbett, Judy Miller, Judy Feather, Bob Jankovits, and visiting electoral board secretary Gloria Chittum. I used the self-timer but failed to bring a suitable tripod. Five minutes afterwards began our 13-hour shift serving 3,070 voters, about 236 per hour, or four per minute. We often had short lines, but nobody had to wait more than a few minutes.

War memorial, Stafford, Virginia

The black stone sphere spins gently on a pool of water. A press release described this as “a 3,000-pound floating granite world globe, floating above a pentagon-shaped base that is etched with the five branches of the Armed Services.”
