I have no funny stories for you today. I am filled with a feeling of “un-fairness” as I think about little Charlotte Reynolds at MCV and the tough, tough week that her family has had. Charlotte’s parents- Roger and Rachel Reynolds- need all of our good wishes. He and Rachel own the Romp-n-Roll gym at Virginia Center Commons. We hope they are all home soon.
Congratulations to everyone at John M. Gandy Elementary School! Congratulations to the principal, the staff, the teachers, and the students who were awarded the 2009
Governor’s Award for Educational Excellence. We all knew that Gandy had high standards, and that excellence could be found in every corner, but it’s nice for Tim Kaine to recognize it. What a wonderful little school.

If you consider yourself a resident of North Ashland, then you should make plans to attend the Feb 4th meeting of the Town Planning Department to discuss the ways that your neighborhood could be developed. Zack plans on beginning the meeting at 6:30pm in the Old Chapel at Randolph-Macon. North Ashland is defined as the area around R-MC, north of Rt. 54, east of James St, west of Rt. 1, and south of Archie Cannon Drive. Can you picture that?
