1 Circulation 13,000 November 1, 2013 Free Arsonist Smith Pleads Guilty After pleading guilty to 68 arson-related counts, Charles Robert Smith III is escorted back to Accomack Jail Thursday by Capt. Todd Wessells and Maj. Shane Childress of Accomack County Sheriff s Office. Smith was bombarded with questions from the press as he walked across the street to the jail. Story and photos by inda Cicoira Nearly a year after the notorious arson spree began in Accomack County, Charles Robert Smith III, a former volunteer fire department captain, stood up in the county s circuit court Thursday and pleaded guilty to deliberately setting 67 buildings ablaze. Smith s white jailhouse jumpsuit bore a stark contrast to the dark clothing he wore as camouflage as he ran out into the night from behind the last structure to be damaged in the binge on April 1, 2013, near Melfa. Commonwealth s Attorney Gary R. Agar and defense lawyer Carl Bundick submitted a summary of the case that was said to list each charge, location, date, property owner s name and corresponding video confession of Smith. (Continued on Page 16) Zaleski Named egal Counsel for Arson Suspect Bundick By inda Cicoira Accused arsonist Tonya Susan Bundick has a new lawyer and likely soon will have a new trial date. On Tuesday, Judge Glen A. Tyler of Accomack Circuit Court granted Eastville husband-and-wife attorneys Shannon and Garrett Dunham s motion to withdraw from defending Bundick. e also continued the cases. The 40-year-old opeton woman was indicted by an Accomack Grand Jury on a count of deliberately setting fire to an unoccupied Melfa house and conspiracy to commit the crime on April 1. er fiancé, Charles Robert Smith III, also known as Charlie Applegate, 38, who lived with Bundick when the alleged arson occurred, was indicted on 68 charges 67 for arson and one for conspiracy. Nearly 80 suspicious fires were reported in Accomack from November 2012 to April Smith confessed to setting a majority of the blazes, according to court documents. e told police Bundick set 15 blazes. Following Tuesday s court proceedings, Tyler informally appointed Allan Zaleski of Norfolk to take Bundick s cases. e had not yet signed the court order when he disclosed his decision. The judge announced in open court that the Nov. 6 trial also would have to be continued to allow the new appointee time to prepare. A new date was not set at press time. Tyler believed he already had appointed Garrett Dunham to the case but learned in mid-october that an order to that effect was never drawn up. e then officially appointed Garrett Dunham. That move came after Shannon Dunham asked for a continuance of the case and when that was denied, asked that she be allowed to withdraw from it; both requests were denied. Tyler said that action may have precipitated the motion I have today. We thought very hard about this motion, Garrett Dunham told Tyler. It doesn t bring us any peace. We would like to continue to represent Ms. Bundick but we can t see how it is possible since another client s interest will keep them from fully representing another. It is with a heavy heart that I ask to withdraw from this case. This has nothing to do with our belief (Continued on Next Page)

According to court records, on Oct. 23 at approximately 3:45 p.m., a situation arose wherein another client divulged information that limits defense counsel s ability to fully represent the defendant s interest and creates a clear conflict as to the representation of both clients, the Dunhams wrote in their motion. The couple contacted the Virginia State Bar on Oct. 24. After fully explaining in detail the situation, a bar representative confirmed that defense counsel needed to withdraw from both clients cases. The other client was not identified. Waiver of the conflict is not possible in this case, as confidential client information would need to be shared with each client in order to obtain such a waiver and would be in violation of the rules of professional conduct, the motion stated. Tyler said that while the bar is available to give advice on ethics, it cannot make a decision about a motion. That is up to the judge. Tyler then asked Bundick if she had any objection to withdrawal of her legal counsel. She quietly answered, No. The judge said he did not have a right to inquire about the conflict of interest. Tyler added that he would have to make some phone calls to find a replacement. At that point, Shannon Dunham stood up to speak. I don t want any suggestions, Tyler said and she quickly sat down. The request for withdrawal is in no way the defendant s fault and should not reflect negatively on her case, the motion noted. An to the Dunham firm from Seth Guggenheim, assistant ethics counsel for the state bar, was included in the court record. It stated, I advised you on Oct. 24, 2013 that you have an incurable conflict of interest under rules of professional conduct with regard to the matter we discussed.

5 By Ron West Northampton supervisors continue to move forward with revisions to the county s Zoning Ordinance. At its session Monday, County Development Director Charles McSwain presented proposed changes regarding zoning districts and permitted activities, all of which are designed to move the county forward in such a way as to improve its business-friendly image and make it easier for residents to thread their way through the permitting process. The supervisors agreed to table a few of the items in the plan such as guidelines for wireless broadband antenna poles and accessory dwellings for additional clarification. One item continued from an earlier board session involved the placement of truck trailers or cargo storage units on private property in the county. Following additional discussion and clarification of rules, the supervisors agreed that if a truck trailer on property is tagged and road-ready, it would be considered a motor vehicle and, assuming parking is not an issue, in most cases would be allowed. Untagged trailers or containers or those not suitable for the road would come under a different code and be limited to areas such as agricultural or less dense residential areas. It too was tabled for additional work. Much of the new ordinance is designed to apply to new construction and questions regarding it should be directed to the county s Development Department. The supervisors urged the public to visit the county s website to view the full draft version of the proposed zoning ordinance and offer them feedback regarding it. The draft ordinance may be found at va.us/departments/planning.html The county plans to conduct a public hearing on the Zoning Ordinance this year. No date has been set for a vote on the final version of the ordinance. One noteworthy proposed change calls for the removal of the Chesapeake Bay Act and and Use-Floodplain Management guides, which would become separate documents rather than being interwoven in the Zoning Ordinance. Additionally, the Supervisors agreed that the Bay Act should apply to the bay and not to the seaside portion of the county. To simplify the matter, the board agreed that land west of ankford ighway would be covered by the Chesapeake Bay Act and land east of it would not. The board agreed to accept bids regarding the most recent delinquent tax auction, conducted Sept. 24. While not all of the properties sold resulted in the recovery of all back taxes, it was agreed that overall, the bids received would benefit the county and put additional properties back on the active tax rolls. Supervisor arry emond addressed the request of the Ad-oc Emergency Care Committee to engage outside consulting services to help formulate recommendations for health care once Riverside Shore Memorial ospital moves from Nassawadox to Onley. The board voted to engage Virginia Rural ealth Resources Center November 1, 2013 Eastern Shore Post 5 Zoning Revisions in the Works for Northampton (VRRC) for no more than $4,500, exclusive of travel costs, to study options for emergency health care. These include traditional physician practices, rural health clinics, federally qualified health centers, freestanding outpatient care centers, urgent care centers, and/or a freestanding emergency department. The report will discuss the characteristics and staffing requirements for each option. The VRRC report will be due to the county by Dec. 31.

It s best management to look at all the needs together, Supervisor Robert Crockett told the other committee members last week. e contends that even in a best-case scenario, waiting until 2018 or 2019 for a new library would be best to allow debt service to lighten up. All we know is the full board has said no to $6 million and probably no to any new debt, Crockett said. e explained that in those four or five years, the debt would be $1 million less a year. Crockett said the school system and other county departments and agencies also need more room. e recently visited the school superintendent s administrative assistant s office, which is five doors down from the superintendent. You must walk through a closet to get to a closet, which was her office. In addition, Crockett said $87,000 a year is spent renting space for the commonwealth s attorney, parks and recreation, public safety and public works. We need to do something to stop making payments on rental space. Supervisor Reneta Major, who was among those in favor of spending for the library, agreed. No one on the board thinks we don t need a library. Debt service needs to be lowered. The board needs to prioritize. I very much want a library. I think it s imperative that we have one there are a lot of needs. Most citizens don t want a tax increase. Barbara Coady of the library s board of directors said she understands the supervisors obligations, but her board needs answers. It s rather bleak, she said of the supervisors comments. ibrary officials could look at expanding and renovation or building a smaller new structure. But Coady said they don t want to spend more money for plans without a reasonable expectation of support. The group already spent $50,000 on the $6 million plan. And building in phases could mean never realizing the end result. Requests for repairs and maintenance would have to be submitted to the supervisors for consideration at budget time, Crockett said. County Administrator Steve Miner noted that if the needs involve safety or the integrity of the building, the matter might be handled differently. Meanwhile, the county health department can t wait. We are required to provide them space, Crockett said. Shore Bank donated land for a new library with the stipulation that walls would go up by March ibrary Director Carol Vincent said the tract was given before nearby property was chosen for the new hospital. Now there are plans for a two- to three-story office building on other bank land, she said. Bank regulators don t like them to hold onto vacant property, Vincent said. Miner mentioned concerns about traffic congestion in the area. We have not paid for a traffic study, said Vincent. Yes, (the) walkability (group) wants a roundabout there to also access Food ion. She said it would be next to impossible to make a left turn there. That s a current hub area, Crockett added. North is a future hub. If the library built there, there would be no tax revenue. If a business went there, it would generate funds, he said of an office building. ocating the public library at a school could be an issue, said Vincent. We can t exclude sex offenders. People can carry guns, she added, noting that those issues might not be a problem at Eastern Shore Community College, which is a prospect worth exploring. Miner said the Planning Commission also should give advice about the best location. The conversation isn t over, said Crockett. Those who want a new library have caused the board to look at the entire capital improvement plan. Vincent said she was happy to see the library needs included in overall space needs since it is a place for everyone. In the past, the library was seen as a poor step-child, she said. You certainly have developed a lot of support, said Miner. What we have is not what we aspire to.

All but a year was suspended. e also was given five years for possession of ammunition by a felon. Three years of that term were suspended. Probation also was revoked for previous convictions of possession of a firearm by a felon, felony eluding, discharging a firearm in a public place and driving on a suspended license, adding another eight months to his terms, for a total of three years and eight months to serve. I ve been making bad decisions, but I m not a bad person, West told the judge in a quest for leniency. Defense lawyer Marsha Carter said West has held a job, helped support his four children and earned an VAC certificate at the community college. e completed a 36-week self-improvement course while in jail, inspired others in the program and has been a jail trusty, said Carter, who urged ewis to disregard West s previous robbery conviction since it occurred when he was about 15. ewis wished him the best in the future, but added, I look at this record. I think you need to be punished. Jonathan Chase Melzer, 38, of Ash, N.C., was sentenced to 10 years for possessing ecstasy, bath salts, psilocybin, SD and marijuana with intent to distribute on July 31, All but two years was suspended, leaving Melzer seven months to serve. Previously, ewis agreed to allow the defendant to go into a rehabilitation center as Melzer requested. owever, once Melzer was released, he decided against entering the two-year program because he would be unable to pay child support during that time. Melzer admitted to dealing drugs for 10 months prior to his arrest. Evidence showed he owes nearly $20,000 in back child support for his four children. You wanted to change your life, said ewis. Now you get out and you don t want to do the program. ooks to me like they re (Melzer s children) probably used to getting along without your assistance.

James Randolph Morris Case Indictments filed against Onley Volunteer Fire & Rescue Company s former treasurer, James Randolph Morris are very vague, a lawyer retained by Morris said this week. Morris, an 82-year-old resident of Coastal Boulevard in Onley, is accused of nine counts of stealing funds intended for the operations of the fire station between Jan. 1, 2008, and June 30, The charges do not state how much money was allegedly involved nor does it give specific dates. Each charge spans over six months. There s not a lot that we ve been able to find out, Adam M. Carroll of the Virginia Beach law firm of Wolcott/ Rivers/Gates commented Tuesday. It is very early in the investigation process. We haven t exchanged discovery yet. We re working on it. Carroll, who was retained about two weeks ago, said his client is a veteran of the Vietnam and Korean wars. When he got out of the military, he had various jobs where he was responsible for funds and this is the only time allegations were made. A source close to the case told the Eastern Shore Post months ago that between $400,000 and $500,000 was missing from the fire company s coffers. That would absolutely shock me, Carroll stated. Morris was released on $1,000 bond shortly after being arrested. The investigation was handled by State Police. Onley Police Department A Pungoteague man allegedly used hand sanitizer to start a fire inside the Dollar General Store at Four Corner Plaza in Onley last week, according to Town Police Chief Walter Marks. Records filed in Accomack District Court show Brandon O. West, 28, was charged with intentionally causing damage of more than $1,000, a felony. Marks said West entered the store at about 8:50 p.m. and went to the stationery area where he allegedly emptied a container of a hand sanitizer and set the liquid ablaze. Onley Officer Jamie Coulbourne responded to the incident and was able to use a fire extinguisher to douse the fire, which shot up near the ceiling, Marks added. West was identified on a security camera and was arrested a short time later by Fire Investigator Glen Neal of the State Police. Marks, Officer George Bennett and the Onancock Police Department assisted. Onley Fire & Rescue also responded.

16 16 Eastern Shore Post November 1, 2013 ~ Arson Trial ~ (Continued From Front Page) Agar also disclosed that one of the interviews with the defendant was conducted in a squad car as police drove Bundick to crime sites. The documents were not available for view by press time, as other court cases continued to be heard. Bundick said a motive is apparent in the 36- to 38-page document. There was no plea agreement, but Bundick said later, I m hoping his cooperation will be a great benefit to him. The lawyer was uncertain if Smith would testify against his fiancée, Tonya Susan Bundick, who was arrested with him and is free on bail, charged with one count of arson and one count of conspiracy. Smith also pleaded guilty to a count of conspiring with her to commit the final arson. e is very remorseful, the defense lawyer said of Smith after the proceeding. Carl Bundick also noted that Smith likely was not taking medicine for his bipolar disorder when the crimes occurred or when he confessed. It s making a difference now that s he s taking it, the attorney noted. Judge Glen A. Tyler also commented on Smith s behavior, noting he was quicker to respond to the series of questions asked of most defendants than he was at a previous hearing. Reporters and camera operators took up most of the courthouse seating. Tonya Bundick was nowhere to be seen. But bailiffs discussed putting her in the front row if she did arrive. Tyler accepted Smith s pleas and commended the lawyers on the presentation. Smith was remanded to jail, where he has been for the last seven months, to await sentencing, which is expected in December. A long-form presentence report was ordered. Also known as Charlie Applegate, the 38-year-old former resident of Matthews Road in opeton could be behind bars for the rest of his life. Tyler said the maximum sentence for the crimes is 584 years in prison and $5,630,000 in fines. Carl Bundick asked if detention and diversion could be considered, but Tyler said neither is pertinent or appropriate for this kind of case. Agar said 52 of the crimes were felonies, with damages of more than $200. Nine were misdemeanors, three were brush fires, one was personal property damage and two were categorized simply as occupied dwellings. Previous testimony was provided by two State Police officers who were staked out in nearby woods and watched the last arson unfold at Claude enry s house on Airport Drive. Smith had eluded police for five months, bringing unrest to the Eastern Shore as people began to suspect each other and fear for their property. Agar said Bundick dropped Smith off at the unoccupied house near Melfa and then returned to pick him up after he set the fire. The crimes began in November The felony arson counts include fires set to: Bertha Finney s structure on Dennis Drive in Parksley Nov. 12; Charles Robert Smith (in jail jumpsuit), pleaded guilty to all 67 charges of arson and a count of conspiracy in connection with a spree of fires set from November 2012 to April 1, e was represented by local attorney Carl Bundick, who held a press conference outside after the trial. woods, a fence, straw or similar material owned by Esther Evans and Millville umber Co.

19 20 Eastern Shore Post November 1, 2013 Posting Up By Bill Sterling SPORTS Bishop eatherbury Unlikely IronMan Bishop eatherbury was nobody s idea of an athlete when he attended high school and college. Even he admits, I was too small to play football and kind of uncoordinated, plus I was on the heavy side, so I never participated in sports. A 1970 graduate of Broadwater Academy, eatherbury attended the University of Richmond and later graduated from Virginia Tech with a degree in accounting. A reunion of Phi Delta Theta graduates from the early 1970s was held on the Shore this summer. Bishop, who was a Phi Delt during his Richmond days before transferring to Virginia Tech because of its accounting department, wanted to be here, but was in training for a race. Not just any race, but the IronMan Triathlon in awaii, the World Championships of Triathlons. is fraternity brothers, many of them outstanding athletes in high school and college, and now some of them hard-pressed to run 385 yards, marveled at what might have been the least likely brother who was preparing to run 26 miles and 385 yards, bike 115 miles and swim 2.4 miles. I started exercising about 10 years after college to control my weight, said Bishop, who at 140 pounds is 30 pounds below his high-school weight. At first I only ran and competed in shorter distances and later marathons. Then I had an injury and went to the swimming pool for exercise. I had never swum before, but once I had done that, I thought about triathlons. The swimming part is the hardest thing I ve ever done. said Bishop, now 61. A veteran of 32 marathons, including the Boston Marathon, where this year he was less than a mile from the finish line when the bombs exploded, eatherbury has completed eight triathlons and will be competing in a ninth this weekend in Florida. Training from 15 to a peak of 25 hours weekly, while covering as many as 200 miles on a bike, running over 30 miles and swimming as many as 10,000 meters a week, eatherbury said time management is the ultimate skill of a triathlon competitor. It means getting up very early in the morning and using your time wisely, said eatherbury, a family man who with his wife Suzanne has three children and two grandchildren. e is also a managing partner at Tatum, C, a nationwide firm that provides interim chief financial officers and financial consultation for companies. aving grown up in Onancock, eatherbury is now in Atlanta, Ga., after stints with companies in Reston and Richmond, Va. e has served as CFO of a number of venture capital funded technology companies, including software, hardware and service providers. is father, Edwin eatherbury, was a CPA and co-owner of eatherbury and Broache in Accomac, where his brother, Rob, heads the firm today. e also has a sister, Anne. With both of my parents gone, I don t get to the Shore very often, maybe about once a year, but sometimes Rob and Anne will meet me in Richmond, said Bishop. But a Shore boyhood friend was never far from his mind as he spent nearly 14 hours pushing to the finish line of the IronMan Triathlon. I raced in honor of my childhood friend, Frank Wray, who has been stricken with AS and in memory of Karen Kelly and John Blais, both Iron- Man World Championship finishers who lost their lives to AS. Thanks to the support of my friends, we topped the $10,000 mark in funds raised. Their contributions will help fund research into a cure for AS so that one day people will be able to survive AS. eatherbury had a goal of completing the triathlon in awaii in 13 hours, an hour better than the mark he set in this race two years ago. Strong winds during the bike portion slowed his progress and left him a bit short of that goal, but still 35 minutes better than his previous best. Reflecting over the week and over the six months of training, eatherbury said he took away a number of lessons. In his words, those lessons were: 1.The power of setting goals in general and in having a BAG (Big airy Audacious Goal). ad I not set an aggressive goal (and told everyone about it), I would not have been driven to train as hard or to race as hard. While I did not hit my goal, I am confident that I did better as a result of having a big goal. 2. Not only is it important to have a vision, it is critical to have a plan and milestones along the way. I had broken my race into goals for each segment and was able to measure my progress along the way. It was even a help to reach each buoy in the swim as a measure of forward progress which let me know I was making progress. 3. The power of doing something for a cause bigger than yourself. Thinking of Frank and Karen kept me going through the tough parts and, along the way, I met many new friends and supporters which enriched the experience. 4. The importance and power of friends and relationships. ots of people along the way helped me through long training rides, long runs and that was every bit as rewarding and important a part of the journey as the race itself. 5. No matter whether you are sprinting down the finish chute to meet a goal or slowing down to smell the roses along the way, running down Ali I Drive and crossing the finish line at the IronMan World Championship is a thrill of a lifetime! Bishop eatherbury arrives at the finish chute after completing the IronMan Triathlon World Championships in awaii.

The public is invited and new or prospective members are welcome. unters for ungry Seeking Donations The Eastern Shore Chapter of the Virginia unters for the ungry announces the beginning of its 16th season of service to residents of the Shore. The program raises the funds necessary to pay the processing cost for deer donated by local hunters. The deer is processed into packages of ground meat that is distributed locally through the Foodbank in Tasley. Since the program s inception in 1997, more than 4,000 deer have been processed. This is over 500,000 servings of a nutritious product that has been well received and enjoyed by the recipients through the foodbank and ighthouse Ministries. The goal this year is 200 deer. The program will begin receiving deer on Nov. 2 through the deer hunting season. The deer may be taken to the refrigerated trailers at the foodbank in Tasley or B&B Market in Machipongo. They also may be taken to the local processor, Brent Powell, in Wachapreague. The deer must be field-dressed and properly registered. The program pays $45 per deer for processing costs, discounted from the going price of $80 a deer. Currently, there are matching funds available for local businesses, clubs, and groups. The organization is a 501-c-3, making donations deductible. The management expense is very low to maximize funds available for processing. The local chapter is requesting both deer and financial donations to allow the program to continue this year. As the processing cost is per deer, donation of larger body deer is encouraged. A speaker is available to talk to groups upon request. Please send checks made payable to unters for the ungry to P.O.
