    Local woman makes history

    I just want to give a huge congratulations to Maia Chaka. Ms. Chaka is a teacher here in Virginia Beach and made history today by becoming the first black female to become a referee in the NFL! How cool is that?

    Since 1980, and throughout the many changes, we still love going downtown in Oranjestad.

    That is very cool Walt.

    I can't imagine the amount of hard work she put in to get to that point, not to mention the abuse she has likely had to endure to achieve this.

    I love reading stories like that.
