The number of Fluvanna registered voters who cast a ballot for county supervisor last November totaled 14 percent – a mere 2,320 out of 16,759. If only 54 people had voted differently we would not have the splintered community we have now.  Instead of ideologues that see quality education as an extravagance we would continue to have leadership that takes pride in our state-of-the-art high school and our dedicated and highly competent teachers and administrators.  We would have paid a little bit more in property taxes, and perhaps at the same time attracted more residents and businesses to our community because the quality of education is always a top consideration when making location decisions.

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.
