Fluvanna Review

“If everyone threw all of their issues into the center of the table,” said Ronnell Lewis, “I bet everyone would pull their own back.”  Lewis, 29, of Palmyra, has a rare and life-threatening kidney disease – FSGS –  that has left him very ill; but his attitude is positive, and his strength evident.

“I was 13 when I was diagnosed with FSGS,” he said “I was at the doctor’s for a physical for sports,” Lewis explained.  “There was too much protein in my urine, and that was how they found it.”  Doctors do not know what caused Lewis to develop the disease.  For years, life went on pretty much as normal for Lewis.  Five years ago, his condition worsened, and he began to pay special attention to his diet and tried to get enough exercise.

School is out for summer. However, a large crowd showed up at Fluvanna County High School on Tuesday, May 31, for the annual spring sports banquet. Recent graduates, rising seniors, juniors and sophomores and families and friends were all on hand. Athletic Director Scott Morris served as master of ceremonies.

Fluco baseball coach Mike Sheridan was first to speak. He reported that the varsity baseball squad started slowly and closed well. In the honors department, shortstop Tre Bright and outfielder Brett Haislip were second team all-conference selectees; Shawn Holyfield was honorable mention.

Summer’s biggest celebration will hit Lake Monticello as residents and guests alike gather to play on the Fourth of July.

New to the lineup of activities this year is a boat parade, said Judy Fish, communications and member services manager for the Lake Monticello Owners’ Association. “It’s very simple but really fun,” said Fish. “People can decorate their boats, put grandkids on their boats wearing hats or waving flags, play music – and we’ll parade in front of the beach.”
