Wal-Mart winning battle in Virginia





Most Orange County supervisors don't appear any more interested in the latest attempt by preservationists to engage them in a discussion of land use than they were the first time.

Members of the Wilderness Battlefield Coalition sent a letter this week to Board of Supervisors Chairman Lee Frame asking for the county to agree to a "comprehensive planning process for the Wilderness Battlefield/Orange County gateway region."

The letter reiterates an offer made earlier this year that supervisors rejected, but this time includes the signatures of landowners Charles "Chip" King, his sister Jan King Evans, and local businessman Ken Dotson, the Kings' local representative.

"There's nothing new in this letter, and it isn't going to change any votes on the Board of Supervisors," Frame said yesterday.
