Jerry’s service will be on 11:00am, Tuesday March 22nd at Teague In Charlottesville. They will also open their doors for visitation 2 hours before the service. The Daily Progress will have this information available in Monday’s print. I also would like to say thank you to EVERYONE for all of the positive responses. They are keeping my fathers spirit alive and my family strong.
Jerry is unfailingly generous to local charitable causes. Recently customers could donate part of the bill to their local church, for example. “When I see people trying to raise money, I’m with them 100 percent because I know what it is like to have to raise money. Tiz has a lot to do with this. She brings me ideas.
“I never take advice from people who are younger than I am. I look in people’s faces and I can tell if they have suffered. As a boy I spent every night with my grandfather. I’ve seen everything he told me about.
“I love my country—Italy—but here has more. Here you have to work for it, but there, however much you work, you still have nothing.”
Yesterday someone from another state emailed me asking for permission to use this photo. Leaving aside the remarkableness of someone actually asking permission to use something on the internet, the email exchange led to an interesting exchange culminating with this:
I have looked at your new library. It is lovely! I know you are happy to have such a wonderful community space. As a realtor, I know you know a good library can be a real asset to a homeowner, create value in the community, and enhance the quality of life. I would have been lost without a library when I was a child, since I couldn’t buy all the books I wanted to read.
I loved the old Crozet Library. And we love the new one too.
CCAC meeting this Wednesday. I can’t make it (soccer season has started); I’ll pay someone to live-tweet it.
There’s a lot of important stuff on the agenda, like the West Glenn development (the one near Orchard Acres & Jarmans Gap) and the Foothills rezoning (more attached product) and CCAC office nominations and elections (there are a few open seats!)
Please message or text (or call) if you are interested.
Western’s stage production on tour, radio and Web by Brian Cohen
In show business, you have to show that you have a show, so the audience will show.
Western Albemarle High School (WAHS) drama students are not only rehearsing for their March 24-26 run of “Grease,” but also promoting their production at other venues and in media. Due to mainly to the higher-than-average fees for show rights, the school’s drama department has acknowledged that publicity will play a vital role in filling the seats.
