Fluvanna Review

Sue LibermanAfter spending most of her life in health and human services, Lake Monticello resident Sue Liberman is putting her considerable experience to work by helping local seniors age safely in place.

Senior Solutions, Liberman’s business, focuses on helping older folks – and their families, who are often far away – feel confident that their homes are safe and they have the resources they need close at hand.

“There’s a significant population of grossly underserved older folks not just in Fluvanna but in Louisa and Orange too,” Liberman said. “My goal is to make sure they get care and services, have their needs met, and help the families of these wonderful people make healthy decisions.”

The Lake Monticello Owners’ Association (LMOA) Board of Directors is considering spending up to three-quarters of a million dollars on a new pool. The expense may require that LMOA residents foot the bill by means of a special assessment.

Repairs to the Lake Monticello community pool have totaled more than $208,000 in the past decade and repairs could cost another $200,000 or more, according to information released by LMOA this week.

A timeline compiled by Angie Cooke, LMOA contracts manager, for the Jan. 26 Board of Directors meeting listed the enhancements and repairs made on the pool, beginning with the installation of a new liner in 2006. That liner is now believed to be failing, along with parts of the plumbing and circulation systems. Add a comment

At Pleasant Grove Park, there is room for nature.

A meadow revitalization plan at Pleasant Grove Park, led by volunteer and Master Naturalist Walter Hussy, is an ongoing success story.  Of 950 trees planted around the meadow, only 20 had to be replaced last year.  The original swath of wildflowers and native grasses planted around the meadows to create a pathway for quail has doubled from 20 feet in width to 40.  Evergreen seedlings like pine and cedar that have sprouted in the meadows are being removed by hand.  All of this is done at no cost to the county – the trees and plants and seeds were gotten for free as part of programs through the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries or the Department of Forestry, or a multitude of nonprofits. Hundreds of hours of work is done by volunteers.
