I am writing this letter because some kids thought it would be fun to do some vandalizing and terrify home owners at The Villages at Nahor. I evidently was the victim who suffered the vandalism. Two windows were shattered costing a huge amount of money.

The others neighbors had their doorbells rung and doors pounded in the middle of the night. These incidents happened May 21 and May 24 somewhere between midnight and 2 in the morning. This is not funny. Senior citizens shouldn’t have to live in fear because teens have no better things to do and do not have moral parental upbringing.

They tell us we are wasting our time, their minds are made up, and they are making it happen. This is what we are getting from the current Lake Monticello Owners’ Association Board of Directors. They are stonewalling the homeowners who have legitimate concerns regarding the Board’s plans to build a second silt transfer and barge docking site at the beautiful and serene Beach 2. They are ignoring our concerns at both their board meeting’s member comment times, and our emails. Who is looking out for the members? And for what? What are the benefits of this second silt docking and transfer site? There are none. Add a comment

Trump’s success at the polls can only be explained this way. The American public is fed up with the current administration and Congress. Someone who is not a politician has great appeal. Are you better off now than eight years ago? Be honest now! Hillary Clinton would be a repeat of Obama. She wasn’t the choice eight years ago and why would we want her now that she is under a cloud of mistrust?

The weather cooperated and Fluvanna’s Pleasant Grove Park was a buzz of fun, enlightenment, and laughter on Saturday, May 7. Congratulations to the many, many people who worked so hard to make the 20th Old Farm Day come alive and be a great success. Special thanks to the three co-chairs: Tricia Johnson, Mary Tilman, and Jackie Bland as well as the 21 Old Farm Day committee members. I am fully aware of the many, many hours that went into planning the event, from securing business supporters; recruiting vendors and entertainment; advertising; planning the parking; planning educational booths; and recruiting lots of volunteers for the day of the event. We had family members come down from Washington D.C. for the event and they had a blast. Other family members, who have lived in other parts of the country, commented on the warmth and friendliness of folks in Fluvanna. Old Farm Day is one of the many reasons that Fluvanna is a great place to live, work and play.

Here’s a question for those people responsible for making decisions here at Lake Monticello: Why not put the safety of Lake residents first instead of last when tractor trailers are delivering construction material to the R&R project in section four? We have narrow winding streets with blind curves and dips on Jefferson Blvd. We have elderly people walking dogs, joggers, bicyclists and children playing in the street but no signs warning drivers. We have how many thousands of cars on roads not designed for year-round residents. Now we have tractor trailers entering from the Turkeysag gate or the main gate and driving up to four miles on these narrow roads to make a delivery.
