Sharon Hrichak Update

Sharon Hrichak is home.  There is a fracture in the left-side of her pelvis, and a second fracture in her jaw.  It was determined she didn’t need surgery, so the hospital discharged her, yesterday.  

She can’t move to get up, and can barely move to sit up.  She is in excruciating pain, but does have pain medication.  Because she is pretty much confined to bed, her primary care physician is recommending a home health aide, nurse, or some assistance.  

They are pretty much taking it morning to afternoon, and George will let us know how/when anyone can help.

Prayers are most powerful, at this point.

Thanks, and God Bless.

YCRC - Prayers for Sharon Hrichak!

Hello, Everyone,
Many of you may have seen the news report of yesterday’s car crash in Newport News involving a suspect fleeing from police. (page 5 of today’s Daily Press) Unfortunately, the suspect was doing 70 mpg and hit Sharon Hrichak, York County Supervisor George Hrichak’s wife, on the driver’s side, causing her pelvic fractures along with bumps & bruises.  Sharon had just started feeling well after fighting breast cancer, so this setback is especially heart breaking and challenging.

Please keep Sharon in your prayers for healing and strength as she recovers and for George and their family in helping her by her side. Their son, George, is serving in the military and returned to Afghanistan this summer, so he will need your prayers, too, as he hears of his mother’s accident and injuries from so far away.
Thank you for keeping Sharon and her family in your thoughts & prayers.
For God and Country,

Lynda Fairman
Chairman, York County Republican Committee

Contributions to George Allen for U.S. Senate are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes.  Corporate contributions are prohibited.  Contributions from foreign nationals are not permitted.  Federal law requires us to use our best efforts to collect and report the name, mailing address, occupation and name of employer for each individual whose contributions exceed $200 in an election cycle.
Paid for and authorized by George Allen for U.S. Senate.


This fall's upcoming elections will, no doubt, be the most important in our lifetime.   After this election, our country will either head further down the road towards socialism or it will regain its footing and return to the principles that have made it the greatest nation on the planet.  We can either sit on the sidelines and hope for the best or we can get involved and try to make a difference.  For just $50 per person, you can spend the evening listening to one of Williamsburg's favorite son's, Drew Haynie, and his band Oldplay, drink beer and wine, enjoy great hors d'ouvres, and, if you need a cocktail, there will be a cash bar.   The Williamsburg Club is an enthusiastic supporter of Governor Allen and is going all out for this event.  There is only so much you can do to have an effect on the upcoming elections and this one night out in support of Governor Allen could make the difference.
This is not your typical stuffy, dry political gathering.  This is going to be a fun, lively event with good company, conversation, music, and food.  You'll get a chance to speak with Governor Allen, share your views on how he can fix this country, and write him a check so that he can pull ahead in what is sure to be a close election.  Many of you have attended our events in the past that were held for Ken Cuccinelli, Representatives Whitman and Rigell, our own Catesby Jones, and others.  We hope you can attend this event as well.
If you're in town and would like to help save the country on a Friday night, you can RSVP via this email or you can follow the instructions on the attached form put together by the Allen folks on the invite below.
We'll have a terrific time.  I hope you can join us!  If you know of anyone that would be interested in attending, please feel free to forward this email.
Amor Patrie,
Peter and Robin Wilcox

Concerned Citizens of the Historic Triangle

York Citizens

The York Concerned Citizens Forum Planners forward this message from a group called the Concerned Citizens of the Historic Triangle.  The group was formed to counter the collaborative effort of the localities to continue the abuse of our property rights and expenditure of tax dollars.

This group attends the Board of Supervisor meetings and the planning meetings. A small group of York County citizens have been participating, but the group is seeking a larger coalition  to protect our property rights and continue this vigil.

Please visit their webb page: <>
If you are interested in joining in this effort contact Mary Leedom at:

Please note the story about the citizen in James City County trying to be allowed backyard chickens and sign his petition.

In Victory

This is your country - get involved

This isn't about Right vs. Left...or Blue vs. Red....or Republican vs. Democrat


.....  and how our government, through planning and under the guise of

environmentalism is grinding away at our property rights and our
