The Fluvanna schools got their money. A large crowd attended the Nov. 20 Board of Supervisors meeting held in the circuit court courtroom. Photos by David Stemple.

The Palmyra circuit courtroom was at capacity Tuesday (Nov. 20), broiling from the bodies of 100 people filling the seats, with even more spilling into aisles and the hallways.
