Who needs high speed internet service if our local officials won't respond to e-mail?
Hanover County residents are reporting that e-mail correspondence to some Supervisors at the official address given on the County website are never unanswered.  Since the citizens of Hanover are paying for these County e-mail accounts, why are our elected representatives not taking advantage of this way to communicate with residents in their district?  The email address for your supervisor can be found on the county website (also in this newsletter). 
It sure would be nice if our Supervisors responded to citizens since they are supposed to be open and transparent and represent our best interests.  Kind of makes you wonder:
1.  Does my supervisor not have or know how to use the technology?  
2.  Is my supervisor ignoring me because he or she disagrees with the information I provided?
3.  Does my supervisor choose not to communicate in a manner which becomes a permanent record of fact?

History Lives at Scotchtown
On Sunday, March 25th, Scotchtown will showcase a dramatic production of Patrick Henry (portrayed by talented actor Mark Wilcox).  This event at Scotchtown commemorates the 237th anniversary of Patrick Henry's historic "Liberty or Death" speech. Scotchtown was the home of the Henry family from 1771 to 1778.
Patrick Henry is depicted working on the speech he is preparing to give to the Second Virginia Convention.  He is joined by a friend with whom Patrick Henry discusses the politics of the day.
There will be multiple performances throughout the day rain or shine.  If the weather is clear, productions will be outside on the back portico.  If rainy, the house will be available.

The 10th Amendment to the United States Constitution is a guarantee of States' rights. The Constitution designed the federal government to be a government of limited and enumerated, or listed, powers. This means that the federal government only has powers over the things that are specifically given to it in the Constitution. All other powers are reserved to the States. The 10th Amendment in the Bill of Rights reads like this:
"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."
Purpose of the 10th Amendment
Why did the Founding Fathers put the 10th Amendment into the Bill of Rights? The explanation is that they did not want the central government to become too powerful. They didn't want a government that was located far away from their homes dictating how they lived their daily lives. They wanted as much power as possible to be retained in their local state legislatures.
Today, the 10th Amendment idea of limiting the federal government's power has been severely weakened by many years of gradual changes in the view of what is and what is not a federal power. The main culprits in this weakening of the 10th Amendment have been the Supreme Court and Congress itself.
History of the 10th Amendment
To better understand the modern day position of the 10th Amendment in our culture, we have to look back at the history of this Amendment and the reasons the Founding Fathers added it in the Bill of Rights.
If you remember your history, you will remember that during the Revolutionary War, on July 2, 1776, the thirteen colonies all declared their independence from Great Britain at once. The day the declaration was voted upon and passed was July 2, not July 4 as most people think. The decision was publicly announced for the first time on July 4 and that is why Americans celebrate independence on that day. You can learn more about the Declaration of Independence here.
Richard Henry Lee
As soon as the thirteen colonies declared independence, they became thirteen individual sovereign states or countries. Each state created its own new government. They had no legal ties to the other states except in the few arrangements they had made to cooperate together in their war against Great Britain. It would be as if the United States, Canada, Mexico, England and France all got together as a group today and declared war on China. The leaders of these five countries would get together and make agreements about who would do what in the war and how they would cooperate. This wouldn't make them all one great big country. They would still be five separate, but cooperating countries.
That was the state of things after July 4, 1776. It should be stated that the new states were already studying ways to formally join themselves together at this time, but they hadn't done it yet. On the same day a declaration of independence from Britain was proposed to Congress by Richard Henry Lee of Virginia, which was June 6, 1776, he also proposed "That a plan of confederation be prepared and transmitted to the respective Colonies for their consideration and approbation." The Congress immediately put together an exploratory committee to consider this issue. You can read the Lee Resolution here, in which Richard Henry Lee made his proposal.

Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?  Forbid it, Almighty God!  I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!
