Teen center launches drive to raise $6,000

The chairman of the Wherehouse Adult Advisory Board fundraising committee says the teen center has started a drive to raise $20,000 to support its operation through June 1993.

The organization needs $6,000 by Dec. 31 to continue the center at 26 S. Third St. in Warrenton, according to Jeff Hutchinson, Virginia Power’s district manager.

The center has been serving 20 to 40 young people from 3 to 8 p.m. weekdays. The number of regular attendees continues to rise, according to center Manager Christy Meadows.

Lines drawn for Liberty High School

A citizen committee thinks the school board should create boundaries that give Fauquier and Liberty high schools some room for growth.

Representatives of the 17-ember Citizens Advisory Committee to Recommend School Attendance Zones this week basically suggested cutting the county in half — north and south — when Liberty High School at Bealeton opens in September 1994.

The new FHS boundaries would include everything north of Routes 211 and 29, the entire Town of Warrenton and some neighborhoods east of town. The Liberty zone would include all students who live south of those areas.

State board member supports Route 17 Spur

Barring a miracle, Fauquier’s representative on the Commonwealth Transportation Board believes the disputed Route 17 Spur will be built.

“When you consider the amount of work and tax dollars that have gone into that, stopping the project now would be a very difficult thing to do in my point of view,” said Constance Kincheloe of Culpeper.

By January, the transportation board probably will decide whether to approve the spur design, according to state officials. The $26.8-million project would extend the Warrenton Eastern Bypass to Route 17 north of town.

Wallace signs with Rhode Island Rams

Enthused by the possibility of immediate playing time at a Division I school in a strong conference, Fauquier girls basketball standout Kendra Wallace has signed a national letter of intent to play the University of Rhode Island.

Five other colleges — the University of Massachusetts, Iona, George Mason, Temple and Central Connecticut — sought the 6-foot-1 senior forward. But, Wallace said she chose URI because she hit if off with Rams Coach Linda Ziemke and like the idea of playing right away in the Atlantic 10 Conference.

In her first two seasons on the Fauquier varsity team, Wallace has averaged 17.3 points and 10.9 rebounds per game.
