     Poquoson joins other Peninsula localities in launching Project Lifesaver

Poquoson Sgt. Hamilton Gills learned his grandfather was missing when an emergency dispatcher called him.

In his 80s and suffering from Alzheimer's disease, Gills' grandfather left home with his walker while his wife was sleeping. Wearing a light T-shirt and pajama pants, he went out on a rainy, cold February night.

"We'd always thought, 'He never wandered before.' When it did happen, we weren't prepared for it," Gills said.

After walking roughly a mile, Gills' grandfather stopped at a house and knocked on the door. He was thirsty. Authorities got him home safely, but the experience gave Gills pause, prompting him to start researching Project Lifesaver.

An international program, Project Lifesaver uses anklets or bracelets to track people with Alzheimer's, dementia, autism, Down syndrome or other cognitive disorders when they wander or become lost, according to its website.

Poquoson was one of the only police departments in the region that didn't participate in the program. This month, it joined Gloucester, Hampton, Isle of Wight, James City County, Mathews, Newport News, Williamsburg, York and other localities, signing up its first family.

"It's great to have something to offer to families in this situation other than, 'Call us if it happens again,'" Gills said. "This is just another way for us to serve."

     Farm Fresh unveils remodeled store in Poquoson

The Farm Fresh store in Poquoson moved up the priority list for a remodel after residents successfully fought off would-be competitor Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market, the company president said.

"It shows the power of community," Farm Fresh President Micky Nye said. "We want to say thank you."

Earlier this year, a developer backed off plans to bring a Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market to Victory Boulevard across from City Hall Avenue down the street from Farm Fresh and Food Lion after a group of residents called Concerned Citizens of Poquoson galvanized local opposition to the project in 2015.

"This is our hometown store," Poquoson Mayor Gene Hunt said at the Farm Fresh grand re-opening ceremony.

The Poquoson renovations enhanced the produce, floral, bakery, deli, meat and seafood departments with organic items, including more than 100 organic items in produce alone, Farm Fresh sales and merchandising vice president Dave Huettl said.
