One Woman's Opinion

Order Mary Buxton’s books
imageLife and love in the rural tidewater area of Virginia is a common thread that runs through nearly all of Mary Wakefield Buxton's books.

imageClass 8 was a presentation of social services programs available to county residents. I was astounded to hear that 30 percent of this county’s population receives some sort of help from our local Social Services Department.


Citizens Academy, Part 7
It was pouring rain for class 7 of the Citizens Academy and I wasn’t feeling well when Commonwealth’s Attorney Michael Hurd and Middlesex Victim-Witness Program Director Mary Atterholt spoke.

Investigator Jordan, a forensic specialist who came out of retirement to help Middlesex Sheriff’s Department track and nab online predators, presented the program.


Citizen’s Academy, Part 5
We were greeted to class 5 of the Citizen’s Academy with a bag of treats provided to the sheriff’s office by Remlik Wesleyan Church. Beside the tasty snacks was a note: “We are praying for your safety and thank YOU for your service to our community!”
