OCTOBER 2021

Change is in the Air

In August I mentioned in my Ted Talk that we ’ d be developing our Game Plan for organizational excellence. The plan is ready to present and is scheduled for the November 17th Board of Supervisors meeting. Meanwhile, here are

a few things already underway:

This week we launched our second Employee Engagement Survey designed to better understand what employees are thinking and how well they are connected to the organization and its mission. You may recall we implemented several initiatives from employee feedback last survey, so please take a moment to respond to this year ’ s survey. Look for an email from Energage, our third - party administrator, with a link for our 2021 employee engagement survey! Organizational Structure is important for alignment and accountability. With the announcement of Kurt Hildebrand ’ s retirement at the end of November, I am pleased to announce that Stephanie Straub will begin serving as Acting Assistant County Administrator beginning in November while Kurt closes out his projects. Stephanie will assume the regular role December 1st. At that time, Glenda Bradley will also be elevated to Deputy County Administrator in recognition of her experience and serving as the primary Acting County Administrator. This will mark the elimination of the Management Services department/function as well. A few other portfolio tweaks are in the works as we work through these changes, so stay tuned. Please offer your support and congratulations to Kurt upon his pending retirement and to Glenda and Stephanie for their continued service.

Lifesaving Awards Presented for Heart - Stopping Heroism By Michelle Williams, Deputy Clerk / Senior Administrative Assistant

At the September 14, 2021, Board of Supervisors ’ Regular Meeting, County Administrator, Theodore L. Voorhees, read a narrative recalling the events that occurred on the morning of August 5, 2021, when Deputy Randy Amos was moving inmates from the Circuit Court back to the holding cells. As Deputy Amos was entering the hallway outside of the holding cells, an inmate began to lean against the wall holding his head. He asked him if he was okay, but received no response from the inmate, who then collapsed on the floor. With the assistance of Control Room Operator, Robert Kelley, Deputy Amos was able to get the other inmates into the holding cell as he quickly checked for a pulse and breathing. He determined there was no pulse, and the inmate was not breathing. Deputy Amos instructed Mr. Kelley to call 911 and to notify the other bailiffs to get the AED and come assist. Deputy Amos then began performing CPR. Soon thereafter, Sgt. Mike Garrison and Deputy Don Hawkins arrived with the AED. Deputy Hawkins began hooking up the AED while Sgt. Garrison took over performing CPR. Ultimately, the inmate was revived before EMS arrived and transported him to a hospital. If it was not for the quick actions of these employees, the inmate would have died. Before presenting the Lifesaving Awards, District 5 Supervisor Lee Frame, stated, “ The public ’ s interaction with the police force or the deputies is ‘ can I see your license and registration. ’ We know that the deputies of Orange County take the protect and serve motto very, very seriously. They are doing great things for all of us, and a lot of people aren ’ t always aware of it. So, things like this are a chance of making the public aware of how much you do mean to us and how important you are to our safety. Thank you very much! ”

Coffee with a Cop By Michelle Williams, Deputy Clerk / Senior Administrative Assistant

While Teresa Burrus isn ’ t a law enforcement officer, she has plenty of experience when it comes to first responding. With just shy of 29 years of experience as a Communications Officer and Terminal Agency Coordinator - Virginia Criminal Information Network (TAC VCIN), Teresa is hanging up the headset and heading into a relaxing retirement.

Teresa got her feet wet in first responding by volunteering with Orange and Mine Run Volunteer Rescue Squads for 8 years. “ I was looking for something as a career and would spend time at the Sheriff ’ s Office with the communications officers. I think Bill Spence realized I wasn ’ t going anywhere, and he finally hired me, ” recounted Teresa. When you ask someone to recount the most memorable event during their career, you expect to hear a story about how they saved a life. I didn ’ t consider the event she was going to recount. “ I worked the night my son, Jeremy, was killed in a car crash, ” stated Teresa stoically. “ I was the only dispatcher on duty that night. Jim Fenwick was the sergeant on duty when the call came in. As he was leaving, I told him to let me know if it was a blue jeep. ” When I asked her how she was able to perform her job duties knowing that her son had just died, she simply stated, “ Your training just kicks in. ” From dispatching fire and rescue to notifying the funeral home and wrecker service, Teresa did it all that night. She spoke fondly of a few Sheriff ’ s Office employees that helped her get through that evening. Teresa affectionately mentioned “ Kono, ” or as most civilians would know him, Deputy Ken Lickliter. “ Kono drove me home and around to let my family know about Jeremy. ” It was a glaringly obvious answer to me when I asked Teresa what she believed her strengths were when it came to her job. She thought about it for a moment and said, “ instincts and training. ” “ I was [Captain] Jason Smith ’ s FTO (field training officer). He ’ d call to ask me how to do something and I never led him wrong. ”

I couldn ’ t interview Teresa without asking what the funniest thing is she had ever seen while working. “ The DUI arrests are the best thing to watch, ” she said with a big smile on her face. “ They admit to everything! Then when those cuffs go on, they start crying and say, ‘ I didn ’ t say that ’ or ‘ I only had one drink ’.” When asked what advice she would give to people who want to become a communications officer or are new to the career, Teresa remarked, “ Stick with it. It ’ s not easy and it will break your heart. Your coworkers will become a new family and be sure to talk to them about what ’ s going on and what upsets you. ” Teresa Burrus, Orange County wishes you as much success in your retirement that you have had with this organization. You deserve much happiness and relaxation in your retirement! Thank you for your years of dedicated service.

A League of “ There Thrown ”

By Jayson Woods, Programs & Facilities Supervisor, Orange County Parks & Recreation

Since the opening of the Orange County Disc Golf Course in June of 2019, Orange County Parks & Recreation has endeavored to promote it as a location of active programming in addition to its natural state of passive recreation. We ’ ve achieved this through directly offering several tournaments with unique play formats, including our doubles ’ “ Turkey Toss ” and the individual “ Spring Fling. ” There ’ s more to come, as we are currently planning another casually competitive tournament (with only one disc allowed per

participant) and a youth introductory program for the

upcoming winter season. However, we wanted to take a moment and recognize the die - hard participants of our first league program at the course, the “ Would Chuck ” Disc Golf League. The league takes its name from the willingness of the participants to give it a shot, while making a tongue - in - cheek nod to the several groundhog residents along the course outskirts. Though just a pilot program designed to let our department experiment with formats and timing while gauging interest, the league has enjoyed the regular participation of 11 folks every Wednesday evening! A pack of clear

frontrunners emerged early in the quest for the custom - designed 1 st place trophy disc emblazoned with the league motto, “ Si Iactare Discus Marmota Poterat, ” (which translates roughly to “ If a woodchuck could chuck a disc ”), but all participants, regardless of standing, are having fun and getting some additional exercise. When asked about the course and league, participant Ricci Deloriea commented, “[ We ’ re] Lucky to have this course, it ’ s a little gem. ” This sentiment was echoed by other participants. Jeremy Butterfield mentioned, “[ It ’ s an] immaculately kept course, ” and stated it ’ s the nicest one he plays on. Jeffery Donnell wanted it known that he “ appreciates everything about it. ” Perhaps Kevin Hagood captured all the sentiments best in one statement, “ Even though I'm not the greatest disc golf player, I love to play, and this league gets me out for some exercise, friendly competition, and meeting new people. I really appreciate OCPR putting this together."

After many rainouts and a lot of jockeying for position, Caleb Roberts emerged victorious in our inaugural league. A regular participant in our programs, we are excited to have witnessed his victory; but we ’ re even more proud of the comradery and fun we saw exhibited by all players throughout the season! We learned a lot about ideal timing and format for this style of program, and we are considering improvements such as an earlier start date and potentially a “50 and Wiser ” league for some of our more experienced players. Stay tuned for even more disc golf related programs and events as we enter the colder months.

We want to make sure our residents are aware of the best ways to stay in the loop about OCPR programs and events. The best way to keep informed is to utilize the “ Notify Me ” system available through the Orange County website. This system allows an interested citizen to select topics for which they would like to receive information. Once registered, emails will be automatically sent to the citizen regarding the topics selected. In addition to Parks & Recreation Programs, citizens may elect to receive emails about Board of Supervisors Meetings, Press Releases, County Events, and more!

Fall Pumpkins

By Jill Wong, Unit Support Staff, Virginia Cooperative Extension, Orange Office

There is a crispness to the air, beautiful colors are peeping from trees, and front porches are abound with large pumpkins, gourds, and mums. The fall season is a favorite for many. Finally wearing cozy sweaters, sitting by the fire, weaving our way through the many corn mazes, and searching for the perfect pumpkins for decorating!

Here are a few fun facts about pumpkins, that quite frankly, I have never thought about (https:// www.sciencekids.co.nz/sciencefacts/food/pumpkins.html).

• The name pumpkin comes from the Greek word ‘ pepon ’, meaning ‘ large melon ’. • Pumpkins have thick shells which contain pulp and seeds. • Scientifically speaking, pumpkins are a fruit (they contain seeds) but when it comes to cooking, they are often referred to as vegetables. • Pumpkins are usually shaped like a sphere (ball). • They vary in weight but an average sized pumpkin might weigh around 13 pounds (6 kilograms). • Giant pumpkins can be grown for competitions, with some weighing over 1000 pounds (450 kilograms)! In 2010, the world record was 1,810 pounds! That ’ s huge!! • Pumpkin plants feature both male and female flowers, with bees typically being involved in pollination (the transfer of pollen). • Over 1 billion pounds (450 million kgs) of pumpkin are produced in the US every year. • As a food, pumpkin can be baked, roasted, steamed, or boiled. • Pumpkin soup is popular, as are roasted pumpkin seeds. • Pumpkin pie is a sweet dessert that originates in North America and is traditionally eaten during harvest time and holidays such as Thanksgiving and Christmas. • Pumpkins are popular decorations during Halloween. A carved pumpkin illuminated by candles is known as a ‘ jack - o - lantern ’. The tradition is believed to have come from Ireland, where they used to carve faces into turnips, beet, and other root vegetables as part of the Gaelic festival of Samhain. • 100 grams of pumpkin produces around 26 calories of energy.

Local Redistricting in Orange County By Alyson Simpson, Chief Deputy Clerk

The Board of Supervisors has begun its work on completing the required Decennial Redistricting. Redistricting is the process of redrawing the boundaries of the County ’ s voting districts, which represent the specific geographic areas of the County that elect the members of the Board of Supervisors. The process is designed to account for population and demographic growth and shifts. Redistricting occurs every ten (10) years following the United States decennial census and is the responsibility of both State and local governments. In accordance with Federal and State constitutional and statutory laws, the redistricting process includes establishing voting district boundaries, precinct boundaries within those district boundaries, and polling place locations for each of those precincts.

It is essential to note that any changes adopted as part of this redistricting would not be effective during the election on November 2, 2021. Changes would become effective for any elections in 2022 and beyond.

As part of the redistricting process, the Board had a Public Input Session on Tuesday, October 12, 2021, to receive input they could consider ahead of the Public Hearing. The Public Hearing for redistricting is scheduled as part of the 5:00 p.m. meeting on Tuesday, October 26, 2021. Interested persons can attend the hearing to present their comments or can submit written comments in advance. For more information and to view the proposed maps, visit the Local Redistricting page on the County ’ s website or contact the County Administrator ’ s Office at (540) 672 - 3313.

Reflection on National Farmer ’ s Day By Courtney Wesner, Orange County Agriculture and Natural Resource Agent

National Farmer ’ s Day was observed on October 12, 2021, and I must note the irony of a day called “ National Farmer ’ s Day ”.

Every day is a farmer ’ s day. Early to rise and late to bed. Crops need planting and harvesting and livestock needs tending. Those things don ’ t take days off, and they don ’ t have days singularly dedicated to them. There are no holidays, no paid time off, no sick leave in farming.

A farmer ’ s hard work and dedication is something that our nation ’ s security and bounty has been built upon and around from the beginning of time. National and local economies are contributed to and built around the day - in and day - out work of the farmer.

Over the past year, the men and women of Orange County agriculture have endured challenging times with steadfast reserve and dedication. This is something that is truly remarkable. They will do the same this year, and next. Please join me in taking pause and recognizing the character and dedication of the men and women that continue to provide each of us with the commodities and sustenance that we need to live our best lives. Thank a farmer, and let ’ s all remember that every day is a farmer ’ s day.
