     Poquoson dog making history at Westminster
Cannoli, a 3-year-old Lagotto Romagnolo owned by Jim and Carolyn Talbert of Poquoson, will compete at the prestigious Westminster Kennel Club All-Breed Dog Show this week in New York. The breed (pronounced lah-GO-toe roe-mahn-YO-lo) was officially recognized by the American Kennel Club last summer, so this will be its first appearance at Westminster.

And that means Cannoli is one of five Lagotto Romagnolos with a shot to win the first "Best in Breed" honor at the nation's most popular dog show.

The breed — the only purebred described by American Kennel Club (AKC) as a specialized truffle searcher — is an Italian water dog with a long history in Europe, tracing back centuries.

Carolyn Talbert said she would love to see Cannoli advance as far as possible — but she is already thrilled to be representing the breed in the Westminster show.

The Westminster Kennel Club All-Breed Dog Show will be televised live from Madison Square Garden at 8 p.m. Monday on CNBC and at 8 p.m. Tuesday on USA Network.

     Poquoson, defending champion New Kent part of four-way battle for 3A East Region wrestling title
“It’s going to be a four-horse race,” New Kent coach Faus said of the two-day Group 3A East Region tournament at Skyline High in Warren County. “Brentsville District might be the favorite, but Poquoson, New Kent and Warren County are all capable of winning it."

Poquoson coach Eric Decker agrees with Faus’ assessment that Brentsville might be the best on paper by a small margin, but feels his team has the best shot at toppling that notion and winning the title.

“I think we’re a better tournament team than a dual team,” Decker said. “I’m not surprised we won the (Colonial Rivers) Conference 25 tournament last week.”

The Islanders edged New Kent 249-242.5 for that championship on the strength of individual titles from William Campbell (106 pounds), Patrick McCormick (113), Kyle Poultney (152), Ross Graham (182), Robert Henesey (195) and Bryce Buchanan (220). Decker thinks all six of them can reach the regional finals and five should win, with Campbell perhaps facing the toughest route to a gold medal.<

Decker also believes that freshman Colten Hicks, who lost his conference tournament 170-pound championship match to New Kent’s David Taylor by a point, can reach the finals. Beyond that, if one or more of four others — Hunter Darouse (120), Cole Parks (126), Noah Hunter (132) and Ian Burress (160) — can finish in the top four, it will give the Islanders a shot to contend for regional and Group 3A state titles.

“I’m looking for someone to pull a surprise,” Decker said.

     Developer gives up plan to build a Wal-Mart in Poquoson
In a letter dated Feb. 5, Virginia Beach-based developer CRES-EG told the city's Economic Development Authority, which handles land purchases, that it is no longer interested in buying the parcel where the Wal-Mart would have been built, according to Poquoson Mayor W. Eugene Hunt Jr.

The letter said that "given the political, environmental, marketing and other challenges we face on the Big Woods property, we have no other choice but to discontinue our efforts," said CRES-EG's manager, Michael Culpepper.

"We did invest a lot of time and a lot of money in pursuing the opportunity," he said. "It's never fun to terminate a deal after you've invested so much into it."

     Poquoson’s Matt Blaser picks VMI
Not every player commits or signs with a college on National Signing Day. The day is just the first day that high school seniors can sign on the dotted line and confirm their commitment.

Matthew Blaser of Poquoson took a little extra time to make his decision.

“(I’ve) decided to go after my dream of playing Division I football and I’ve chosen VMI,” said Blaser. He had narrowed his choices to Christopher Newport and VMI, but the Keydets won out. He stressed not only the opportunity to play Division I football, but also the opportunity to pursue engineering and VMI’s alumni network as an attraction.

His commitment to VMI came on Monday after visiting the Lexington campus for the second time.
