Fluvanna Review

Sage Garden owners Roberta and John Mann and their golden retriever Tara.The proposal. It’s one of those family stories their now grown children have heard countless times. John and Roberta attended the same high school in New Jersey, but never met until they ran into each other in Colorado several years later. They started dating and discovered how much they had in common. When John felt it was time to pop the big question, Roberta had a question for him.

“Yes, but only if we live on a farm,” she replied. “I’m going back East to be closer to my family, and I’m going to buy a farm. Are you on board?”

Shaun Kenney, executive director of the Republican Party of Virginia. Photo by www.jaltieriphotography.comShaun Kenney, executive director of the Republican Party of Virginia, has been cleared of any wrongdoing by a special prosecutor investigating claims that Kenney used his position as former chairman of the Fluvanna Board of Supervisors for his own financial gain.
Special Prosecutor James Fisher said in a letter today (Aug. 15) to Virginia State Police Special Agent Barry Tuggle that, “After a lengthy review, my office has determined that the allegations against Mr. Kenney do not constitute violations of Virginia law, and we are closing our file accordingly.” He added, “…We have determined that Mr. Kenney’s conduct in no way violated any provisions of the laws of the Commonwealth, criminal or otherwise.”
“I’m relieved,” said Kenney when he learned the results of the investigation. “We suspected this was spurious and we received confirmation of that today. Obviously it always hurts to have your reputation questioned in public; I’m just glad that mine had the opportunity to shine through. It has been a distraction for me and my family for some time and now,” he added, “Now we can get back to doing the good work that we wanted to do in the town of Columbia, without that backdrop of small town politics.”

The Fluvanna County School Board voted Wednesday (Aug. 13) to ask county supervisors for up to $600,000 to replace computers and to maintain classroom technology such as smart boards and computer projectors.
School Board Chairman Camilla Washington said, “I feel this project has been put off for far too long. We need to share the information with the Board of Supervisors so they can understand what we need.”
Washington added that some teachers have computers that cannot even make it through one class period without failing, and emphasized that a reasonable replacement cycle for those computers was necessary.
