    290 OTHFRS NEED NAMES
Ash Rood Honors Local Woman
BY TERRY POPE
It had hccn nine years and nine
days since Brunswick Couniy Com
missioners adopted the name Vir
ginia Road for a small graveled
street in Ash.
The hoard took that same action
again Monday.
It also agreed to set a public hear
ing for 6 p.m. April 6 to consider
new or revised names for another
29() county roads.
Due to an administrative error, the
Ash road name was never officially
changed in 1983 from Warren Road
to Virginia Road in N.C. Depart
ment of Transportation logs as resi
dents were led to believe.
The couniy had ordered and erect
ed signs bearing the Virginia Road
name. When questions arose, some
residents appeared before commis
sioners last week requesting the road
be renamed Warren Road.
Resident Angela Smith said she
was pleased with the vote taken
Monday to keep Virginia Road the
official name.
Her family presented a petition
signed by property owners asking
that it stay named after Angela's
mother, Virginia Dora Smith. The
road serves as a memorial to the for
mer substitute teacher and bus driver
at Waccamaw Elementary School,
she explained.
"I'm happy. Very much so," said
Ms. Smith. "I feel this is the way it
should have been done to start
with."
Residents there had also gathered
the names of 304 people in the com
munity who wanted the byway to re
main Virginia Road.
"It's official now," District 1
Commissioner Kelly Holden told
the Smith Tamily that had gathered
in the commissioners' chambers
Monday.
According to the petition, Virgin
ia Smith was a highly-regarded
member of the community and was
"loved and admired by students
whose lives she touched." She was a
Sunday school teacher and secre
tary-trcasurcr of her church.
It was with love that members of
the community suggested naming
State Road 1325 in honor of the
woman, the petition states.
"This road led to her birthplace
and to her home where she lived the
last years of her life," it stated. "This
road is where she played as a child
and where she played with her chil
dren as well."
The road has been a source of
"comfort and pride to all that knew
and loved Virginia Dora Smith," the
petition stated.
A resolution adopted by commis
sioners on March 7, 1983, naming it
Virginia Road was somehow forgot
ten in the administrative shuffle ol
paperwork.
It was named ihc Warren Road af
