Retro Reads: Soldiers swarm area localities for war games in 1941

People in the Fredericksburg region in June 1941 were used to occasional broods of cicadas, as we are today. The overpowering hum in the air, the crunch under the feet. They counted themselves lucky that the cicadas didn’t eat anything above ground, unlike the swarms of grasshoppers they had read about that descended on pioneers on the Great Plains, eating everything in sight and not stopping until the wood handles on the axes were gone.

LETTER: Caroline reassessment figures don't add up

Caroline County’s reassessment figures don’t add up. On June 3, I met with the Caroline County Board of Equalization to address my challenge regarding the recent reassessment performed by the Wampler Group of Ruther Glen. My real estate value of $78,000 was adjusted to $81,000 on their rep’s work sheet. An increase of 3.9 percent was acceptable, since the cost of living for 2020 equaled near that value.
