Chesterfield Pool

Hampton Roads, in particular Norfolk, VA, is an exceptional place to live and work with great many exceptional people. Look around you and you will see either a big little city or a little big city that not only has culture and the arts but also great athletes. Did you know thanks to Norfolk Southern and the expansion of the shipping pier this place now handles the most amounts of export and import in the United States. Mass transit that is the beginning of an entire system in a city that…


Public Service Announcement

If you are reading this blog please cue up the song “Public Service Announcement” by S.Carter. This is a public service announcement Sponsored by Myself and the good folks at...I did a little thinking today. I serve the public. I provide a great service. In fact, I am proactive to keep the quality of my work high and try to solve problems quickly, fast, with no pain and complaints.  The general public is something else. These days, I hear all types of…


Who's working in the garage?

 This past week I have been assigned to work at Chesterfield Swimming Pool. The demographics of the Chesterfield Swimming Pool patrons is 97 percent African American youth and adults, ages from 6 to 30 years of age, and 60 percent male 40 percent female.  Listening to the young people got me thinking. The kids at that pool want what most other people want in life, the good life. Now you can define the good life by material possessions in this case. However, from listening to their…

After I instructed swimming lessons today, I did some thinking. I had a parent approach me and ask why their child can not swim the length of the pool. Mind you, these swimming lessons are ONLY!  On Saturday. That is only 1 day a week. I am here to tell you that the World War II generation might know a little bit more wisdom. After all, it was my grandmother (Mrs. Ethel White) who said “Anything worth doing is worth doing well, haste makes waste and practice makes…


Tribute To Carey Hughley

Posted on May 12, 2011 at 11:00pm 0 Comments

It seems that in life sometimes maybe on rare occasions we meet someone worth emulating or patterning ourselves after to some degree if not a large degree. In many respects these particular people live on even after they are gone. Their achievement, their integrity, their honor, and their care for others inspire us. They continue to live as we carry their memory. They continue to live partly through what we do. Cary Hughley IS one of those people. His example stands…

Robeson, Jason Coombs will be swimming at the Minneapolis Grand Prix November 11th and 12th, hopefully you can watch him in the finals on the live web cast at USA swimming Grand Prix sight. He has worked hard since US Nationals to make Olympic trial cuts so we will see if it happens there!

Hi Robeson, just wanted to give you a shout-out, and thanks for thinking about me. Have you thought much about scuba? I have just the place in mind waiting for you. Stay in touch.

Hey Robeson,
Thanks for the interest. Matter of fact I used to live in VABeach about seven months ago but spent a considerable amount of time in Hampton and Newport...Christopher Newport Univ mostly. Noticed in your hobbies you didn't mention surfing....so I have to ask if you do? We'll be in touch.

Unfortunately, I don't spearfish at all, but would love to learn, if the opportunity presented itself. Darrick
