Fluvanna Review

Not one of the four candidates Fluvanna embraced in the June 13 primaries won the statewide election.

Fluvanna voters embraced Tom Perriello (Democrat for governor), Corey Stewart (Republican for governor), Susan Platt (Democrat for lieutenant governor), and Bryce Reeves (Republican for lieutenant governor).

By contrast, the following candidates will appear on the Nov. 7 ballot: Ralph Northam (Democrat for governor), Ed Gillespie (Republican for governor, Justin Fairfax (Democrat for lieutenant governor), and Jill Vogel (Republican for lieutenant governor).

Only 20 percent of Fluvanna’s voters chose to participate in the primaries. Of the county’s nearly 18,000 registered voters, about 3,600 cast a vote.

Santa and child at ToyliftOne big clue that Christmas is nearing takes place on the first Friday of December when Fluvanna folks team up with other Charlottesville-centric counties to make sure the season is a happy one for all local kids.

This year was no different thanks to the efforts of business owners Ed and Denise Lauterbach who, time and again, have filled the corner of the Food Lion parking lot with lots of reasons to celebrate.

Together with the help of everyday people, the Lauterbachs provide sweet treats and entertainment as an open invitation for the public to donate toys.

Emil and Margaret ColmenaresResidents of Lake Monticello and members of the Gray Foxes golf league said goodbye to their long-time friend and advocate, Emil Colmenares, 99, and observed a final tribute to his fourth wife, Margaret, on Saturday (March 11) at the Lake Monticello Fire House.

“It was beautiful,” said Carlton Colmenares, the sixth of Emil’s seven children, who drove from Hempstead, Texas, to celebrate the life of his stepmother, who died in January.
“A lot of my dad’s friends here at the Lake were very glad to see him and spent several hours with him,” he said.

Carlton Colmenares described his father as someone with “tremendous charm and fun. People flocked around him,” he said. “He swept Margaret off her feet because he was very gregarious.”

Margaret Ashley Kennon Colmenares found a zest for life in the handsome businessman whose enthusiasm and audacity made him an extraordinary salesman who was great at marketing. He had a contagious personality, too.
