Fluvanna Review

The woman who pleaded guilty to stealing more than $1,000 from Fluvanna’s after-school program was sentenced March 27 to seven years in prison.
However, Circuit Judge Susan Whitlock suspended all seven years.
Constance Monique Bland, 27, faced 20 years in prison when she pleaded guilty Jan. 24.
Bland will serve one year on supervised probation, said Fluvanna Commonwealth’s Attorney Jeff Haislip.
“Ms. Bland was ordered to pay restitution to the after school program in the amount of $1,300,” Haislip said.

Sage Garden owners Roberta and John Mann and their golden retriever Tara.The proposal. It’s one of those family stories their now grown children have heard countless times. John and Roberta attended the same high school in New Jersey, but never met until they ran into each other in Colorado several years later. They started dating and discovered how much they had in common. When John felt it was time to pop the big question, Roberta had a question for him.

“Yes, but only if we live on a farm,” she replied. “I’m going back East to be closer to my family, and I’m going to buy a farm. Are you on board?”

A free Earth Day Celebration will take place on Saturday, April 26 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Pleasant Grove Pole Barns. This family-friendly event is all about helping Fluvanna clean up and learn new, environmentally-friendly ways of doing things, according to Jonathan Pace, recreation program specialist for the Fluvanna County Department of Parks and Recreation, which is co-hosting this event.
“This is an informative celebration to spread awareness and get people in the know about what they can do to help Fluvanna be ‘green’,” Pace said. “We want to build a good foundation this year, and then make this an annual event, so that Fluvanna residents know – every year around Earth Day, they can dispose of their hazardous waste, tires, and medications, and learn more about how they can help the environment.”
