Crabbers Plead One
for Relief Cool
By Linda Cicoira
The Virginia Marine Resources Commission (VMRC)
Tuesday refused to rescind action closing the female
crab season five weeks early, despite the pleas of approx-
imately 50 watermen who urged reconsideration.
The vote on the issue was 4-4. Commission Chair-
man Steven G. Bowman broke the tie.
Irene Eskridge, wife of Tangier Mayor James
(Ookar) Eskridge, said the watermen traveled the
rough waters of the Chesapeake Bay to ask for a two-
week extension of the female crab season. “They were
desperate. They were willing to take anything,” she
said. “But they gave them nothing. It’s a scary time. We
don’t know what we’re going to do.”
Regulations enacted last spring prevailed “in order to
rebuild a crab population at scientifically proven danger-
ously low levels,” according to the VMRC’s Web site.
John Bull, director of public relations for the VMRC,
said, “Data show the total numbers have dropped by
70 percent. That’s an alarming drop. That’s screaming
for action. We did what was required to continue the
blue crab species. We wish we didn’t have to do this.”
“It seems we’re getting a bad rap on this,” said water-
man Dean Dise, also of Tangier Island. “They voted not
to allow us to work. There are a lot of crabs around.”
Dise, 49, has worked on the water for most of his life.

Have a Happy and Safe W Halloween Safety
hen you think of Hal-
loween safety hazards,
contaminated candy may
be the first thing that comes to
mind. Of course you should check
everything that comes home in
that treat bag, but pedestrian in-
juries, burns, and falls may be
more likely to occur as well.
A Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention study says chil-
dren 14 and under are four times
more likely to be hit by a car on
Halloween than on any other
night of the year. It’s understand-
able. Kids who would normally be
more careful get distracted by
their friends or excited by the
trick-or-treating. Careless street
crossing coupled with drivers’
more limited vision at night can
make for a deadly mix.
In general, children should be
accompanied by an adult or a re-
sponsible older sibling on their
Halloween rounds. For older
kids, you’ll have to decide how
mature they are and how safe
your neighborhood is before de-
ciding when it’s OK to let them
