breaking down folling presser

Often we see television journalists skyping from conflict zones, but when news originates at home big gear is still de rigueur.

Conclusion
Based on the information known to investigators at this time, we find no substantive basis of fact to conclude that an incident occurred that is consistent with the facts as described in the November 19, 2014, Rolling Stone Magazine article.
The department’s investigation cannot rule out that something may have happened to “Jackie” somewhere and at some time on the evening of September 28, 2012. Yet, without additional evidence we are simply unable to reach a definitive conclusion.
This investigation remains open, yet suspended in the event additional evidence should come to light.–CPD (full statement is available)

Elysium or the Elysian Fields admission was reserved for mortals related to the gods and other heroes. Later, it expanded to include those chosen by the gods, the righteous, and the heroic, where they would remain after death, to live a blessed and happy life, and indulging in whatever employment they had enjoyed in life.– Wikipedia

mall hugger

Call me old fashioned. A free opportunity in which I wasn’t willing to engage. I scurried off.

Trust. I’ll trust you. Will you trust me? Doesn’t matter who you are, what you look like, why you’re here. Bring your heart-SHARE A HUG!
“In a time with so much division and fear, maybe the most revolutionary and helpful thing we can do is give each other a hug.”–The sign says

Politics in our ten square mile pond is fascinating. In the big water,
state, national, there is a money at play. But in the little pond, it’s about vision, quality of life,
having principals and living by them, wanting to make your home better.

Charlottesville Tomorrow has the story.

These candidates are exemplary. They care deeply about their community.

Lena Seville

Many different paths lead to a councilmanic run. The candidates are activists: for community engagement, for the environment, for historic preservation, for clean safe streets, for better schools.
Charlottesville Tomorrow has the story.

Dede Smith

Two of the candidates are incumbents. They’ve worked their way through a multitude of meetings in the past four years. Fielded thousands of e-mails. Met with citizens, made site visits. Stayed up late. Read thousands of pages of staff reports. It’s not easy.
Charlottesville Tomorrow has the story.

Kathy Galvin

In a small pond like ours the candidates have guts, and there is little glory in the offing. No one has an office decorated in the style of Downton Abbey. The Councilors give us their work and selfless dedication, to make our town a better place.

Here in the hinterland we run our utilities in the air. It is the cheapest way.
Akin to keeping our inventory of used auto parts in the front yard.
Some of the poles are owned by the Dominion, some are owned by the telephone people?
Providers who want to run wires and cable rent space.

A Green City
Charlottesville citizens live in a community with a vibrant urban forest,tree‐lined streets, and lush green neighborhoods.
We have an extensive natural trail system, along with (a) healthy rivers river and streams.
We have clean air and water, we emphasize recycling and reuse, and we minimize storm‐water runoff.
Our homes and buildings are sustainably designed and energy efficient.–Council Vision 2025
