Fluvanna Review

Office spaceBy summertime an empty storefront in Jefferson Centre on Turkeysag Trail will open as office spaces for Fluvanna’s growing population of solopreneurs and home-based workers.

Martin Broan, manager of Jefferson Centre Self Storage, said the new flexible office spaces could suit several types of businesses.

“If you’re a lawyer or accountant working out of your home office, but you don’t want people coming to your house, or having to get them through the gate,” then the temporary office space could be a perfect solution, Broan said.

The front office, with its big storefront windows, might work well for “holistic medicine or maybe massage,” he said. “You could even run a used car lot here,” he said, noting the inside offices and ample parking area outside. Add a comment


LacrosseThe Flying Fluco girls’ lacrosse team got off to a strong start on Friday (April 28) against the Eagles from Liberty Bealton High, but it was the Eagles who came out on top 10-9.

Fluco Coach Heath Hughes noted after the game that the Eagles managed to wear the Flucos down as the game wore on. The Flucos had only three substitutes due to a rash of injuries, while the Eagles were able to substitute much more freely with a bench of eight.

The game opened with Fluco junior goaltender Morgan Maupin stopping a point blank shot by an Eagles attacker only 45 seconds into the game. Two minutes later the Flucos were on the board, as senior attacker Natalie Hughes scored on a hard shot off a penalty. After another good save by Maupin, Natalie Hughes scored again with 15:37 remaining in the first half. This score came on a tough shot from in front of the goal with Hughes surrounded by defenders. A minute later Liberty bounced back with its first goal.

Lauren KirbyA birthday party was the beginning of an equestrian career.

Fluvanna High School junior Lauren Kirby wanted to have her 10th birthday party at Susan White’s horse farm on Central Plains Road. After that day, she was hooked.

“She literally started riding and never stopped,” White said. “That’s how she’s so good.”

Good enough to best more than 13,500 youth equestrians to place third in the nation at a recent competition. Add a comment


Dale WiseDale Wise is a man on a mission: a mission to preserve accordion music and pass its legacy on to a newer generation.
The key is a new generation of interested musicians, he said. He – along with other accordion enthusiasts – is carrying on the traditions of music that has roots in many cultures.

Wise, a teacher who majored in piano, is passionate about the accordion. However, Wise realizes that the accordion has lost favor in the music world over past decades and has been downgraded to remain in history as part of a variety of cultural folk music.
Wise spoke and played his accordion for a wistful crowd at the Friends of the Library’s annual café event Wednesday (May 3) night. The café atmosphere set the tone for Wise’s music, which included many familiar standards known worldwide. He took the audience on a trip, beginning in America with the folk festival held in Burr Hill, Va., where people from around the world will sometimes show up and participate. His point in telling these simple stories was to show how cultures can come together through the love of music, bridging the gap between the past and the present.
