I am Eleanor Kroeger, retired Hospice/Home Care Nurse, and a current caregiver. Though I have cared for other families in the past, when faced with my own family’s situation, it became apparent to me that a support group for caregivers would be really helpful in making a difficult situation easier. A caregivers support group’s goal would be to reach...
Greenwood Cell Tower On August 23rd, the Albemarle County Planning Commission discussed the long-proposed cell tower in Greenwood. The Planning Commission voted to recommend special use permits approving the tower to the Board of Supervisors, which may have the final say on the matter on October 5th.  I am hopeful that the Board of Supervisors will finally approve it, thus...

I have just read the new summary of the County’s report on what the climate crisis will do—and is now doing—in our area: www.pecva.org/wp-content/uploads/Preparing-for-Resilience-An-Overview-of-Albemarle-County-Climate-Change-Impacts-web-res.pdf.

It’s a call to action—we need the proposed Comprehensive Plan to require that growth in the County be managed so...

Historically, “honors” or “advanced” classes were predominantly white, and standard-level classes tended to be taught with a deficit mindset, according to the work of Jeannie Oakes and others. Heterogeneous grouping–having...
Regarding the now covered mural on St. George, I would like to commend the Gazette’s spin on the absolutely ridiculous fast action taken by VDOT to eliminate community artwork and grassroots action, and also comment on the subsequent letter sent by a Crozet resident condemning the street mural. The evidence on whether or not street paintings are a safety hazard...
We were passing through your town for a family event and came a day early to catch Western Albemarle High School’s production of “Mamma Mia” because ABBA is our favorite! I will admit that we were not expecting much from a school production and were surprisingly overjoyed and extremely impressed with the entire production, beginning to end! The music...
