     Poquoson EDA denies Walmart developer's request for contract extension
The Poquoson Economic Development Authority board on Tuesday voted down developer CRES-EG's request for an extension of its purchase agreement to buy a portion of the city's Big Woods and build a Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market.

The contract still stands for the EDA to sell 8.87 acres. But EDA board members have asked CRES-EG for revisions to the already-revised site plan for the proposed project, which has caused an outcry in the community.

The original plan called for a 41,921-square-foot grocery store, six gas pumps and a smaller retail shopping center nearby. The plan presented Tuesday has only the grocery store.

Mike Culpepper, a principal broker with CRES-EG, told the EDA that the developer was seeking the contract extension because it had been asked to include a road through to the back of the property and plans for that will require additional time. There are several other concerns with the site plan, he said.

Culpepper asked if the EDA board needed specifics on CRES-EG's commitment to incorporate the gateway and connectivity issues in a formal contract or they could merely agree on them. A formal contract was requested.

     Poquoson residents ride out flooded weekend
One indication of how much water was standing in Poquoson on Saturday: kids paddling a boat in a front yard and that was at low tide.

At midday water was creeping up on the sides of roads that weren't already covered. High tides on Sunday were expected to be among the highest of the coastal storm that brought days of pounding rain and wind to the Peninsula.

Saturday was the lull between the big squalls, and a few residents even walked dogs or took strolls as the sun peeked out between rain showers.

Stephanie Bartels, who lives in on Lodge Road, said things were looking much better Saturday. She was waiting clean up, saying worse weather was expected Sunday and she would only have to clean her yard again anyway.

It's a familiar routine.

     Poquoson shuts down Smithfield, rolls to easy 47-6 victory
With their teammate Nate Ward making his first appearance at a Poquoson High game since his injury two weeks ago, one would expect the Islanders to come out flying. After the opening play went for an 80-yard Smithfield touchdown, one may have thought the Islanders had too much emotion.

But from that point, the Islanders scored the next 47 points to cruise to a rain-soaked 47-6 win over Smithfield on Thursday night in a Bay Rivers District contest at Poquoson Middle School.

Ward, recovering from a head injury that left him hospitalized and in a precarious position, had to be delighted.
