The Fluvanna SPCA requests assistance in handling a special animal population. Earlier this year, local and state officials broke up an alleged dog fighting ring and placed 10 pit bull dogs and puppies in our care. These dogs must remain with us until their court case is resolved.

The Fluvanna Review gave a good overview summary of the Board of Supervisor’s public hearing meeting on April 9 and in the words of the immortal Paul Harvey – “Now, for the rest of the story.”
The opposition to the proposed raising of taxes was challenged at the meeting to present some ideas, some specifics, something more than just saying no and something more than rhetoric. And the sound of silence was deafening. Silence in April.

My name is Trisha Thompson and I am Relay For Life of Fluvanna’s Event Chair for 2014. I am a lifelong community member and am now married and raising a daughter in Fluvanna as well as three step-daughters. I Relay in hopes that they will never hear the words “you have cancer”.
Today, I wanted to take time to send this letter out to the community welcoming everyone to join us in the fight. Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature fundraising event. Last year, Fluvanna County raised over $107,000 in the fight against cancer. We are off to a slower start for 2014, but I know this community is capable of great things. As for this year’s Relay For Life event, we have many changes in our committee and would love to have you join us. The weather is now warming up and Relay is less than 60 days away!

I’m not sure if I agree that the new tax rate is something that “we all choke on” as stated by Mr. (Tony) O’Brien during the Mar. 12 budget meeting. This is in fact what Mr. O’Brien was elected to do by those whom he himself has acknowledged will be thankful for the increase. After all, there will be recipients that will benefit from the increase and that fact is relevant to his own political victory. But, this is not a “reset” Mr. O’Brien, not an abstract philosophical action. It is just another tax increase.

Tamara and Skip! Who are these people? If you live at the Lake or nearby you probably have visited and eaten a delicious meal at the Lake clubhouse restaurant. If not, please do.
Early last week on Facebook a post was made by a local resident about Ashlawn Grille. Within three days there were over 170 positive comments about this restaurant. It may not be the most comfortable restaurant inside; it may not have all the décor of either a Chili’s or a TGIF. But it does have excellent food and customer service. I have been eating at this restaurant for almost five consecutive years (at least 40 times per year). We plan all our company events at Ashlawn Grille.
