Following last year’s reassignment of Father Matthew Hillyard, OSFS, to a parish in New Jersey, Bishop Ireton was – for the first time in 44 years – without a priest as a principal. Ireton’s principals have all been from the order of St. Francis de Sales. In an effort to retain the heritage, a Salesian Discipleship Team was created to develop a new set of guidelines for the school. Called the “Live Jesus Charter” the plan seeks to continue to teach young men and women to “Live Jesus” as according to the distinctive spirituality of St. Francis de Sales.

The weekly meeting of Agriculture, Conservation and Natural Resources went smoothly and we managed to complete our agenda for the year. Among the good House bills that passed were one to establish tidal creeks as no discharge zones for boats – a very good idea and one that most of us thought was already in place. Another good bill authorizes permit-issuing authorities to allow storm-water permit holders to comply with nonpoint nutrient offsets that have been certified under the Chesapeake Bay Nutrient Exchange Program. These offsets must be in the same tributary and offered to those who have demonstrated that the applicant has achieved a level of effort. The committee and staff worked hard this year and should be congratulated for a good job.
