    How were the oceans, puppies and human beings formed? Was it through evolution, creationism or something in between? It's a heavy topic that's generated debate for years. That discourse landed in Chesterfield School Board members' laps recently when they set about adopting new science textbooks for middle and high schools. At issue was the concept of intelligent design, and why none of the proposed textbooks offered an alternative to evolution for how the universe came to be. Intelligent design proponents urged the School Board to include that theory in the school system's science curriculum so students can consider differing viewpoints...

    Chesterfield County Supervisor Edward B. Barber is spending this weekend in jail after being charged with two sex crimes against a minor. Barber, who was arrested late Thursday night, faces one count each of aggravated sexual battery and object sexual penetration. He is being held without bond in Hopewell's Riverside Regional Jail until his Jan. 3 preliminary hearing in Chesterfield's Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court. "Of course, with allegations like this, people automatically assume guilt so it's devastating to the whole family," said Barber's wife, Theresa, during a phone interview from her Bon Air home today. "I absolutely don't believe...

    RICHMOND -- Civil liberties lawyers have appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court to allow a Wiccan priestess to offer prayers before a public board's meetings. Cynthia Simpson was turned down in 2002 when she asked the Chesterfield Board of Supervisors to add her name to the list of people who customarily open the board's meetings with a religious invocation. The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals sided with the suburban Richmond county. In their petition, received by the court yesterday, American Civil Liberties Union lawyers accuse the federal appeals court of trying to "obscure with legal smoke and mirrors" Chesterfield's...

    A week after a reptile slaying in Chesterfield County, it remains unclear whether the fisherman who reportedly clubbed it to death will feel the bite of the Endangered Species Act. Max Belle, the angler in question, hasn't even been told by federal game officials if the deceased reptile was indeed on the protected-species list, said his lawyer, David Baugh. "If the government takes this long to determine whether or not it is a protected species, I wonder why they would expect a common, ordinary citizen to make this differentiation," Baugh said Friday. "How is someone supposed to know the difference...

    This Freep is dedicated to the memory of Staff Sgt. Donald May, Jr., USMC, Chesterfield, VA. Being a little early, I was able to park the Freep-Mobile directly in front of the Va. Museum of Fine Arts where the Women in Black (I'm just going to call them WIB's from now on) gather before their march down the Boulevard. I hung an American Flag on the side of the truck and “EVIL TRIUMPH’S WHEN GOOD MEN DO NOTHING” with the Eagle, Globe & Anchor emblem on it. A few of the WIB’s were sporting yellow ribbons this week. One of...
