I was in court yesterday for the hearing between Churchville attorney Francis Chester and the County of Augusta and took numerous notes. The court stenographer that was ordered by Mr. Chester never materialized and it was not required to have official transcripts of the proceeding so we have what was written by the press and myself as a guide of what happened. It is a busy weekend at the Mitchell household so I hope to have a post up by Sunday.
Bottom line: The case of the county requesting sanctions (fines) against Mr. Chester was continued until November 16.
Meanwhile, check out Tony Gonzales' article in today's Waynesboro News Virginian. Also present in the courtroom were Trevor Brown with the Staunton News Leader and Ken Slack with NBC-29.
Lots of emails and phone calls from concerned citizens that I will also post.
