The present name for the electronic toll system for the Coleman bridge is E-ZPass with the link in the name for the web site. This system was started as Smart Tag, then FasToll and now E-ZPass. Have no idea what it will be called next week or what name it will change to after the next name change. Only thing that has been steady is that there is nothing steady about the name. At least it is faster than stopping to pay a toll.
The New Hope Baptist Church is located at 1807 George Washington Memorial Hwy, Gloucester Point Shopping Center, Gloucester Point, VA.
Here is the link to the main web site for Hague Water Treatment. They have a regional office located at the Gloucester Point Shopping Center.
Here is the link for Cox Cable. for cable TV, high speed internet and or telephone service. This is the only cable TV provider in Gloucester County. Cox offers the fastest high speed internet service on the Peninsula, much faster than Verizon and much faster than any of the Satellite internet providers. We had Verizon but now we have Cox and I prefer the higher speed of Cox. Downloads are much faster as are uploads.
We just subscribe to the internet service. We stream our TV and movies through the high speed so we forgo using the cable TV and we use two separate VOIP phone providers making the cost for our two separate phone lines a total bill of only $70.00 per year. This gives us caller ID, call waiting, call forwarding, conference calling of up to 9 lines, call recording without beeps, 911 service, free long distance throughout the USA and Canada, and more for that $70.00 per year. Not per month, per year. We used to pay nearly $50.00 per month for much less service on one phone line. Consider this another in the series of tips and tricks. The trick is to use Skype and or Magic Jack for your phone service. As far as TV goes, download DivX and there's your free TV, no commercials.
The Cox service center is staffed with very helpful and friendly people. They go the extra mile to make sure they take care of you. A rare thing these days.

Gloucester, VA Links and News – A GVLN Website.
We cover what no one else will.
Olivia's At The Point, Seafood Steak and Pasta restaurant. No web site. Checked out the on line reviews and they were lacking. Only 2 does not qualify as a fair meter. Since we have not eaten there, we can't make any judgments, so it is on our list of places to try.
Ace Cleaners and TR's Tobacco Outlet both located in the Gloucester Point Shopping Center. We used to buy from TR's until the vendors decided what they would carry and our brand disappeared, then so did we. In fairness though, they have really good overall prices and a friendly helpful staff. Excellent selection of Cigars last time we were in there, but that was over a year ago. Neither one has a web site so we do not have any links.
Grand Rental Station located in the Gloucester Point Shopping Center. Here is a link to their web site. The site is presently under construction but it looks like the plans are for it to be a very informative site. Ph - 804/642-5500. In case you want to see what kind of items they have available or to reserve an item.

We were not aware of this until we started posting the next picture in our files that Green Gate Gifts had a second store. But here it is in the Gloucester Shopping Center. If you want more information on Green Gate Gifts, see our earlier posting below.
