Regarding the November 2019 article County Schools Reinterpret Gifted Instruction by Lisa Martin on the decision by Albemarle County School Superintendent Matt Haas to redefine the meaning of “giftedness,” I found the comments by Maureen Jensen, lead coach for gifted education in Albemarle County, to be truly remarkable in the absence of facts.  In order to deflate any misguided interpretation of...
Clover Carroll, author of “The Light at the End of the Tunnel,” is one my favorite Gazette columnists. I truly appreciate her excellent summary of progress with the Blue Ridge Tunnel restoration.

Crozet is a great place to live. Crozet is growing because new people want to come here and be a...
I have lived in the historic district on Saint George Avenue for almost 30 years. I write today on behalf of over 200 neighbors and friends concerning the proposal of the Crozet Catholic Mission to purchase properties and vacant lots on St. George and Railroad Avenue, for the construction of a church and parking lot.
