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.

The first thing Chairperson Mozell Booker did when the Board of Supervisors gathered on Wednesday (Sept. 3) afternoon was apologize to the public.
Things at the Aug. 6 meeting of the Board did not go the way they should have, she said. “As chair of the Fluvanna County Board of Supervisors, it’s my responsibility to make sure that our meetings…[are conducted] in an orderly manner,” she read from a statement. Several citizens were “called out” by name, she said, which is contrary to the Board’s policy. “And we as the Board of Supervisors…should not be calling out names,” she continued. “As chair of this Board I apologize to those individuals whose names were called out, and I apologize to the citizens that were sitting here in this courtroom at our last meeting. And I would hope my fellow Board members sitting here are in agreement.”
Despite Booker’s apology, four citizens still had some points to make. Carolyn Talley, Mary Tilman, and Judith Mickelson expressed their displeasure that the Board approved the controversial development known as Poplar Ridge over the spoken wishes of the majority of the citizens in attendance at the Aug. 6 meeting. Tilman in particular took issue with the tone of the meeting, which grew contentious at times. “I hope there will never again be a meeting like that,” she said. “It made me feel like I was at a Judge Judy program.”
