I wanted to send out a heartfelt goodbye to a very good friend and columnist Jen Zajac. I was so sad when she told me that she is moving but so very excited for their family and their opportunity.

Yes, this board was stuck to deal with the decisions of a past board. My main complaint is the way the May 2 deal transpired.

What kind of professional behavior is it to send an e-mail to communicate huge cuts in funding that will be voted on in less than three hours? Massive unworkable, recommendations were generated without any input from the school board. In her defense of the real need for reconsideration, Ms. Keller voiced her grave concern, saying that she had always believed in the process (compromise of working issues through in good faith) but this treatment has caused her to tremble.

Kudos to Horace Scruggs and his high school chorale. Over many years as a mom and grandmom I have attended many school performance programs as “my kid” was a part of it. This recent Mother’s Day I was privileged to attend the Fluvanna County High School choral presentation at Central Elementary School Auditorium...but this was so totally enjoyable. Add a comment
