Fantasy aside, the second image that came to mind was one many of you may remember. On April 11, , a year-old quarterhorse named Belle became trapped in a swimming pool and had to be rescued. Dozens of emergency workers and other volunteers worked together to help the horse escape from the pool with only one cut that needed stitches and some other superficial abrasions.
And with a designated group that has a broader knowledge and the right equipment, hopefully the next time a large animal needs to be rescued in an emergency situation, it also will have a happy ending.

Tax proposed homes to reap funds for road construction Dear Editor, Powhatan County needs to set aside funds for local road construction. Powhatan County is currently looking at approving high end homes with the Ellis Farms Development and the Donnelly Creek Development.
The biggest issue though is Page Road and Manakintown Ferry Road will need a major multi-million dollar reconstruction to handle all this new traffic. Both roads have no room to pass a stopped car without going into the ditch. Both roads also have tons of blind spots, making them dangerous for cars and bikes to navigate, especially at night. Page Road in its current shape can only handle a few hundred cars a day. When they build these homes, they will add at least 1, car trips a day to Page Road.
Page Road will need to be reconstructed with two foot-wide travel lanes and two 8-foot-wide paved shoulders to meet modern road construction standards. The new paved shoulders could also be called bike lanes to make Powhatan County hip among the local bike riding community and have room for cars to safely pass golf carts.
They also will need to add a sidewalk to one side of Page Road and Manakintown Ferry Road because the developments will have new sidewalk systems.
Pedestrians will be able to start safely walking to WalMart. There are some possible examples of how paying for road construction could work. If Powhatan County diverted 30 percent of the existing taxes towards roads, the new home owners in the two developments would not have their taxes go up. Another possibility is Powhatan County could. On top of that, they could divert 20 percent of the existing taxes collected on these homes toward local road improvements.
The home owners of the existing older homes on Page Road would not have their taxes go up if the new homes had to pay an extra 10 percent to 20 percent in taxes toward road improvements.
A new study | You did what?
The tax revenue set aside from these homes would pay for a road construction bond for Page Road and Manakintown Ferry Road. The road funding bond would reconstruct all 2.
The road bond would also build the missing 0. Any new homes built along Manakintown Ferry Road or Page Road would feed into these road bonds until they are paid off. Any extra tax increases set on the new homes would sun set as soon as the road bonds are paid off. Carl Schwendeman Powhatan County.
