“The Crozet Community Advisory Committee (CCAC) is a 15-person advisory committee that provides assistance to County staff and the Board of Supervisors on civic/community issues related to implementation of the Crozet Master Plan in accordance with established county procedures. The membership is broad-based to incorporate a variety of perspectives and ideas and to provide citizens, businesspersons and representatives of active community groups a chance to be engaged and be heard in a constructive and meaningful way.
The CCAC members are appointed by the Board of Supervisors. There are currently nine members whose terms are expiring in March 2016, although historically several open seats are filled by reappointments.
If you are interested in becoming involved in Crozet in this way, a link to the application can be found here. Applications are due March 22, 2016. If you would like to speak to someone for further information about possibly serving on the CCAC feel free to contact Dave Stoner, Acting CCAC Chairman at [email protected] or Emily Kilroy, Community Engagement Specialist, at [email protected]. ”
A funny thing happened a little while ago – soup started showing up on the front porch of a little house on Jarmans Gap. Turns out that soup is by the fine folks at L’Etoile.
On a schedule I’ve not yet tried to figure out, they put soup in a green cooler on their porch , $10/quart, and then – on your honor – you pay and take home a delicious quart of soup. I’ve had the soup; it’s outstanding.
Transportation, road networks, bicycle lanes and sidewalks … connectivity, new and proposed residential development … (like it or not), this is where change happens and how our community grows. (bolding mine)

Technically, it’s a Heavy Rescue truck, but apparently they call it a toolbox.
Heavy Rescue’s (sic) carry large quantities of tools, chains, air bags, lights, large cribbing/shoring, hydraulic equipment, ropes, rigging, air, and lighting. Fire trucks tend to carry limited amounts of the above lighting but in very technical situations you need more that was is typically carried. The Vehicle’s primary function is vehicle rescue/extrication. It has the capabilities to provide large scale scene lighting, mobile SCBA (air bottles) refills, ropes and rigging, large vehicle extrication and shoring, and large scale lifting of vehicles, tractor trailers, and even train cars. Most refer to a heavy rescue as a large moving toolbox.

Western Albemarle High School will be performing the Tony-Award-winning musical “Grease” in its auditorium March 17-19.
Directed by drama teacher Caitlin Pitts, the rock ‘n’ roll production is set in 1959, when “good girl” (Sandy Dumbrowski) falls in love with (unbeknownst to her) a rough, tough gang leader (Danny Zuko) of the high school gang called the T-Birds over the summer. Once school begins, though, they and their friends struggle with peer pressure, sex vs love, gang violence and other adolescent issues.
Fans of Western’s productions will be treated to a talented cast including newcomers and veterans. In his Western acting debut, Cutter Mendenhall shows off his dancing, singing and acting chops as Danny. Chloe Horner, a “Silly Girl” from last year’s “Beauty and the Beast,” takes the female lead as Sandy. Freshman Ben Nordbrock plays Danny’s gang lieutenant Kenickie. Ryann Sheehy, who starred as elegant Belle in last year’s “Beauty,” shows her rougher edges as Rizzo.
Adult advance tickets for “Grease” will soon go on sale online and at Western for $12, $14 at the door (student and senior citizen prices are $6 and $8, respectively). Doors for the March 17-19 evening shows open at 6:30 p.m.; curtain is at 7:30 p.m. There is also a 2:00 matinee on Saturday. Please note that, due to cancelled rehearsals resulting from inclement weather, performances may be postponed for snow dates to be announced later.
