My sister Suzanne was visiting me in South Carolina on October 18 when a cousin from Charlottesville emailed us an article from that date’s Daily Progress. We were totally shocked to see the headline “Cale School Namesake Made Racist Comments.” We had to decide how react to what we and many others in Albemarle County, and especially Crozet, consider...

Peak Corrections

Peak Corrections Thanks to John Andersen for catching the errors in my article about Crozet’s mountains that appeared in the September issue (“A Peek at the Peaks,” 9/18).  I do apologize that I muddled a couple of identifications in this very difficult article. My most regrettable mistake was misidentifying the location of Jarman Gap—John’s correct observation that it lies between...

I developed electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) about 4 years ago. This means that when I am near electromagnetic radiation sources such as WIFI, cell phones, smart meters, and cell towers, I begin to feel ill.

Thus, I was excited to read “A Peek at the Peaks: Naming Crozet’s Mountains” by Clover Carroll in the September issue of the Crozet Gazette as I also love learning and sharing the names and locations of our...
Crozet has both benefited and been victimized by encroaching development. Development brings vitality and economic growth, and new neighbors, but it also often brings destruction of the cherished past. I fear unchecked development will destroy our Crozet of the past and leave nothing to show for it. It’s already happening. We’re experiencing a lot of infill now in old...
I lived in Charlottesville for 42 years, had always thought I wanted to live in the country, and never thought I would end up in a development, but here I am in Old Trail! Despite the growth and development, after six years, I am loving it! I love the convenient location and small town, even the old-fashioned feel of Parkway...
