TANGIER ISLAND, Va. -- From left, Congressman Scott Rigell, Gov. Bob McDonnell and Tangier's mayor, James "Ooker" Eskridge, look on as Col. Paul Olsen, Norfolk District commander, signs a proclamation Nov. 20, 2012. The governor and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers recently announced plans to build a long-awaited jetty to protect the island's endangered harbor. With the Corps' agreement several weeks ago to commit federal funds, a cost-sharing agreement with the Commonwealth was signed and the project approved for study, design and construction.
