At an event Thursday, Arena was asked the best way to coach young players. He said it was important for youngsters to have fun and that only 13 coaches in the country should feel pressure to win–the 12 in MLS and himself.I strive to coach my U-12 girls the same way…. Yes, one can learn a great deal about life through this complex game, but the kids should not feel the added pressure of a winning each and every time.

Water shortage in Louisa
DailyProgress.com | Louisa officials looking to solve water shortage:Although Fluvanna and Louisa counties have agreed to the basic outline of an $18 million project to pipe water from the James River to Zion Crossroads, it is still in the early permit process and Louisa leaders are meanwhile eyeing other ways to hydrate the area.The potential for dramatic water shortages is not localized to the Charlottesville/Albemarle area – it extends at least to the entire Central Virginia region, as evidenced by this story. Interestingly, one of the issues that Louisa/Fluvanna are considering is the James River pipeline.One of the focal points of this particular story is the Spring Creek development that is currently under development near the 64 Interchange in Louisa. This is a massive development that is the first foray into our market by Ryan Homes.
Private property right in shopping centers
He said the store ownersâ€™ rights to have unimpeded access for shoppers, and candidatesâ€™ rights to campaign without impeding shoppers, could easily be melded to accommodate both, as states such as California do. He said he easily campaigned at Giant with permission from the store management and agreed not to interfere with customersâ€™ easy access to the store. Establishing the right of political candidates to campaign outside stores in large shopping centers â€œwouldnâ€™t affect your front yard or my front yard or the inside of buildings,â€ Collins said.In my mind, if a property is owned by an individual or corporation, no one has the right, nor should they, to come on said property for any reason unless they are invited – for example, to shop.
We won the first game, 4-0 and my daughter not only made several nice saves and scored two goals…. The second game was a different story – playing against a team from Charlottesville, the other team was vicious and dirty and took advantage of many missed or blown calls from the referee…. They were defeated by a possibly better coached (UVa’s women’s coach “helps out”) team, but my girls cheered loudly for the other team, shook hands and held their heads high.

CAAR endorses David Toscano
The Charlottesville Area Association of REALTORS has decided to endorse David Toscano for the 57th District race. Of the three Democratic candidates running for office, they believed him to be the strongest candidate for office for the following reasons – He has a solid history of public service to the Charlottesville area as a member of City Council He supports the Meadowcreek Parkway He is open-minded and has a demonstrated history of bringing together a wide range of opinions to find the best solution He supports local control of local issues He is a demonstrated champion of quality education systems He understands the needs of businesses and wants to improve economic opportunities He wants to use market incentives to build better communities while protecting private property rights He provides Charlottesville with the quality of character that we deserve to represent us in Richmond I serve as chair of the CAAR Government Affairs Committee and found the process by which we arrived at this decision fascinating, with varying points of view. In the end, we felt that his willingness to listen to all points of view was one of this strongest characteristics.
