The Kids’ Fishing Day at Lake Monticello on Saturday (May 9) was a great success. We had 44 young people age 12 and under compete for prizes in a total of four age categories within girls and boys brackets. Thanks to the volunteers who helped the young anglers with everything from registration to baiting hooks and weighing their catches. Special thanks go to the Lake Monticello Owners’ Association staff for providing assistance with facilities. Lake Monticello Community funded the event. The good folks at Fluvanna Hardware provided the bait. Prizes were donated by The Dogwood and Bistro Restaurants. Everyone enjoyed the pizza from Papa John’s.

There are a number of organizations in Fluvanna County that provide valuable services to the less fortunate that we all know exist in our communities. One of these organizations, Fluvanna Habit for Humanity, provides the most basic service – that of providing safe, decent, affordable housing for worthy low income families in Fluvanna County. The cost of providing this shelter however, does not come cheap. Fluvanna Habitat is constantly searching for ways to acquire funds to purchase home sites and construct homes.

When you travel in the Columbia District, such as Venable, Mountain Laurel or Carysbrook roads, in some places it is like driving through a tunnel – the weeds are higher than your vehicle! This is very dangerous since you cannot see the animals when they are about to come out of the forest and fields and they cannot see you.

Here is the fourth question in a slanted telephone poll, funded by Fluvanna United, and conducted by a Richmond firm on May 31:

“In reaction to budget cuts, some members of the school board refused to open a new high school, while online comments on Facebook called members of the board of supervisors racist for cutting the school budget. One individual even threatened to burn down the business establishment of an elected official. Do you approve or disapprove of the way supporters of public education have conducted themselves in Fluvanna County?”
