Book Description

Two decades of town government in Waterford are distilled into this entertaining book, omitting much of the repetitive bureaucratic prose of the minutes themselves. To round out and enliven the portrait of the village glimpsed in those pages, John Souders has added background, context and occasional commentary. He has also woven in the recorded memories of residents who experienced these times first hand. Packed into these pages are answers to questions about Waterford, Virginia that, in the gay nineties, one was too polite to ask:

• Just how much manure is too much?
• What happened when the post-election jollification got out of hand?
• How did the ladies soil their balbriggans?
• Was the livery stable really a den of sin ?

Nothing is held back in the exclusive probe into the long-hidden files of Waterford’s old Town Council.

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as
    though you relied on the video to make your point. You definitely
    know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog
    when you could be giving us something informative to read?
