Sue LibermanAfter spending most of her life in health and human services, Lake Monticello resident Sue Liberman is putting her considerable experience to work by helping local seniors age safely in place.

Senior Solutions, Liberman’s business, focuses on helping older folks – and their families, who are often far away – feel confident that their homes are safe and they have the resources they need close at hand.

“There’s a significant population of grossly underserved older folks not just in Fluvanna but in Louisa and Orange too,” Liberman said. “My goal is to make sure they get care and services, have their needs met, and help the families of these wonderful people make healthy decisions.”

Rhon Williams, Frost BitesIn two weeks, local business owner Rhon Williams will either pack up the contents of Frost Bites, Fluvanna’s frozen yogurt shop, or sport a pair of swim trunks and sit in a pool of frozen yogurt so hometown heroes can turn him into a human sundae.

Williams says he will wear his “sundae best” if he can raise $50,000 through an independent fundraiser set up to spare Frost Bites from having to close. “I see this as the opportunity to say, ‘Yes, we appreciate businesses that are in our community and we are going to step in and do what it takes to keep them,’” he said.

Santa and child at ToyliftOne big clue that Christmas is nearing takes place on the first Friday of December when Fluvanna folks team up with other Charlottesville-centric counties to make sure the season is a happy one for all local kids.

This year was no different thanks to the efforts of business owners Ed and Denise Lauterbach who, time and again, have filled the corner of the Food Lion parking lot with lots of reasons to celebrate.

Together with the help of everyday people, the Lauterbachs provide sweet treats and entertainment as an open invitation for the public to donate toys.

Historic photographI can’t remember the first time I went to a store, but I do remember when the store would come to us. The Raleigh Man drove a bright yellow enclosed wagon pulled by a horse, and he would come by our place about once every three months. His arrival was a big event for our mother, and also for us kids. The Raleigh Man sold a lot of small things the nearest store would not have. It was really interesting to see the great variety and quantity of merchandise he could pack in a wagon. Add a comment
