Fluvanna Review

Photo courtesy of U.Va.The University of Virginia women’s rowing team will be looking to get some revenge on Saturday, April 26, when they host the Spartans of Michigan State at 9 a.m. on Lake Monticello. As we all recall, it was the Spartans who recently eliminated the U.Va. men’s basketball team from the NCAA tournament.
The U.Va. women’s team was ranked third in the country when they traveled to the west coast last week to compete in the Pac-12 challenge at Red Shores in California, The team competed against Stanford, the host school, and Oregon State and USC. At this regatta, the U.Va. varsity eight topped a strong Stanford squad by almost three seconds. As a result of this win, the varsity eight was named the ACC crew of the week. This crew has defeated all seven of its opponents this season. The rowing team has a roster of 74 athletes this year. While, most are from the south and the northeast there is a smattering of west coast athletes, and even a few foreign rowers. In fact, the university’s first varsity eight includes rowers from Germany and the United Kingdom.

It’s perhaps a stroke of genius to use the wisdom and experience of older citizens to influence and help the younger.
That is exactly what the Joint Area Board of Aging (JABA) program Friends in Schools Helping Program (FISH) is all about.
Started in Charlottesville/Albemarle in 2004, the program extended to Fluvanna in 2013. There are now 24 FISH mentors at Central Elementary, Carysbrook Elementary and Fluvanna Middle schools. Volunteers work one-on-one with students or in the classroom for at least one hour per week, said Carleigh Wegner, Fluvanna and Louisa FISH coordinator.

Rob Browning with his art.It was hot, triple digit temperature day and in Palmyra they had no electricity, so things were heating up at Maggie’s house and elsewhere. But by 11, the lights and air conditioning were back on and the artists were chatting with onlookers about their work at the second annual Artist’s Studio Tour.
