A group of friends enjoyed a meal at the Hole in One Café. With construction of the new cart barn and club house at the Lake Monticello golf course and a season of unending rainy days, it has been a slow start for the Hole in One Café. However, Manager Frank Hedderich is optimistic and determined to build it into a successful business.

Hedderich, along with partners Mark Moser and Len Poulin, are the owners and operators of HIO Golf Management, LLC. Hedderich, PGA general manager, has been overseeing the transformation of the Eagle’s Nest food service operation since February and has been making headway. He has been pleased with what they have accomplished so far.

Think twice before you light up a cigarette the next time you drive.

Virginia is cracking down on smoking in a motor vehicle with young children around. As of July 1 it will be against the law to smoke in a vehicle, whether moving or at rest, if a child under age 8 is in the vehicle.

Breaking this law will be deemed a secondary offense, “which means we cannot initiate a traffic stop or take enforcement action unless there is some other criminal violation,” said Lt. Dave Wells of the Fluvanna County Sheriff’s Office.

The offense will be enforced much like seat belt violations, Wells said. “If a driver is stopped for another offense and they are smoking with a person younger than 8 in the vehicle, they can be ticketed,” he said. “The burden is on us to prove that the child is less than 8 years of age.”

Breaking the law will result in a civil penalty punished by a $100 fine which will be paid into the state treasury and credited to the Literary Fund, according to Virginia code.

People breaking the law will not be arrested but may receive a ticket, Wells said.
