Crozet Library to Impact Downtown Parking - NBC29 WVIR Ch...

I was going to ask the same thing...downtown Crozet? Where are they hiding it?  (Sep 6, 2012 | post #2)

Police Investigate Fatal Accident on Garth Road - NBC29 W...

From what I read, Thomas turned himself in. He will have to pay the consequences for a few minutes of poor, poor judgement. Samuel, as one said above, will not be able to move on. Drivers are the ones who make the roads dangerous. People who pass us every morning on Rt 53 on a double solid line. (We are going 50-55, they are going 75-80). They tailgate us out of our subdivision (speed limit 25)...we do 25, period. That's the speed limit. Our area is overrun with deer who, for some odd reason, can't obey the law, and jay walk in front of us. We've had several near misses, no not from the deer but the butt behind us tailgating. We almost got rear-ended at the bottom of Monticello Mountain because a woman was texting and almost didn't stop in time. We were forced off the road when a pick up truck approaching us crossed the yellow line into our lane. So tell me...is the road dangerous or are the people driving the danger? Thank God my husband (who does the majority of the driving) is a defensive driver. I have learned as well to anticipate everyone elses moves. And I obey speed limits! I don't want to spend money on paying a ticket!! Also I want to live to see my grandchildren grow up :)  (Sep 6, 2012 | post #70)

Construction to Start in Fluvanna - NBC29 WVIR Charlottes...

No, you are wrong. I've seen a lot of growth in the last 2 years alone. I don't put the necessity of a traffic light in a heavily trafficked area in the same category as "businesses ".  (Sep 6, 2012 | post #17)

Geese Targeted in Albemarle County - NBC29 WVIR Charlotte...

The sentence below the last comment on any given page should read: Tell me when this thread is updated with anything remotely intelligent!  (Sep 4, 2012 | post #56)

Construction to Start in Fluvanna - NBC29 WVIR Charlottes...

I think there should be a traffic light there at that intersection and not a round-a-bout or traffice circle or whatever you want to call it. I also think a traffic light at Rt 53 and the Food Lion Shopping Center should be in the plans as well. As much as that area of Fluvanna is growing, there is a real need for traffic control in that area.  (Sep 4, 2012 | post #15)

Giant on Seminole Trail Closes - NBC29 WVIR Charlottesvil...

Doesn't bother me, I hated that store. Used to like the one on Pantops but even that's not what it used to be.  (Aug 31, 2012 | post #5)

Four Dead after Incident on Stony Point Road in Albemarle...

How am I being passive aggressive? All I said was in an earlier post if he did kill his family (and now we know he did), then his soul needed prayer not damnation. I believe in praying for people and I will pray for your soul too Rattle. I'm not trying to put blame on him, on society or anything. I find this very tragic, but it will do no good now to "damn" this person to "hell". Quite possibly that's where he is -- that's probably where he was - in a hell - maybe of his own making. Never once did I "defend" him. What he did was horrid -- but I do feel bad for his tortured soul.  (Aug 31, 2012 | post #292)

Four Dead after Incident on Stony Point Road in Albemarle...

So now all of you who wanted to know who killed who, well you know. Did it make you sleep any better last night? It was a 19 year old man (child?) who apparently had some issues (some know what they were, some don't) and it's too late to do anythinga about it. My sincere prayers go out to the remaining family and friends and I hope time will heal your hearts. For friends of Mrs. Walton, I'm sure this makes you feel better that she did not kill her children. But did she know what was going on with her son? I doubt he just decided to do this at the spur of the moment. Did she know he was troubled? Did the dad know what was going on? Well there is at least some "closure " to this. Now everyone will want to know why he did it, what drove him to it. No one will ever know the exact reason for this. RIP Romando family.  (Aug 31, 2012 | post #289)

Four Dead after Incident on Stony Point Road in Albemarle...

I'd like to rephrase part of that. Actually it did impact me....I couldn't believe it when I heard about it happening in the little community I raised my kids in...so yes, that impacted me. Wanted me to run to my children, hug them tight, and tell them that I am always there for them, if they ever have problems that get too hard to handle. What I meant was....my finding out or not finding out who did it is not going to alter my life.  (Aug 30, 2012 | post #283)

Four Dead after Incident on Stony Point Road in Albemarle...

You prove the point I was trying to make :) It seems you knew the mother and/or the family, so yes, it might be helpful to you to know what happened. I mourn for the family and I've said prayers for those left behind, but whether or not I find out which one did it, will not impact me one way or the other. I just see it as a very tragic thing.  (Aug 30, 2012 | post #282)
