…Itâ€™s a sacred day to all war veterans: None need to be reminded of the reason that Memorial Day must be commemorated. … By honoring the nationâ€™s war dead, we preserve their memory and thus their service and sacrifice in the memories of future generations.

Thanks to Erika at C-Ville for pointing out that the Buy Fresh Buy Local 2010 Guide has been released. You can download the guide from the Buy Local Virginia site . Your list of Farmer’s Markets, local farms, orchards, vineyards, CSAs, supporting Charlottesville area restaurants, retailers and caterers – all in one place . … I’ll have extra copies if you want some.:)
An interesting dilemma in a suburban environment : With a proposal to cull deer before their community association, some Dunlora residents are hoping theyâ€™ll be able to keep bow hunters out of the bucolic neighborhood. Theyâ€™re hoping that the board will table the idea or, barring that, put it to a community-wide vote. .. â€œWe do need to limit deer because, in addition to being a problem for people by eating landscape plants and being in the roadways, deer are impacting other species, such as birds that require low-growing plants for habitat. The best way to accomplish this would be for people to learn to live among the coyotes that have moved into Virginia now that the bigger carnivores are mostly gone,â€ she wrote.
Just a thought. From today’s C-Ville : As its June 30 closing date approaches, the Charlottesville Ice Park faces the real possibility of lying dormant . There are currently no interested buyers or tenants for the venue, according to co-owner Roberta Williamson. Where will UVA Men’s and Women’s teams practice and play?
Have some charts with your coffee.
Charlottesville is a good soccer town; we’re privileged to have outstanding soccer teams to watch – UVA Men’s and Women’s , thriving youth and adult programs and pretty good fields on which to play. … I asked the question last time, 2006 , and now I ask it again: Where are the best places to watch the World Cup in 2010? . (The USA’s odds to win are 66/1 ) The Shebeen and McGrady’s Irish Pub led the informal poll on Twitter. – I think Zinc on West Main will be showing the World Cup. (they’re also listed on livesoccertv , so they must , right? – BW3 and Wild Wings surely will. – Fardowner’s in Crozet says they’ll be showing it .
…@JimDuncan – I think Shebeen’s going to be one of the best places for the World Cup this year —
