Ouch. 17th Century meets 21st. 1MN1NJA, Virginia has vanity plates which allow motorists a mini-billboard for self expression.
I am Ninja? In this case, many adjectives spring to mind that would better describe the motorist.
In 21st C Charlottesville we have parking laws:
Sec. 15-136. Parking–Curb regulations.
(a) It shall be unlawful for any person to park a vehicle with the left side of such vehicle next to the curb in such a manner as to have such vehicle facing the flow of traffic in the lane of traffic nearest to the curb at which such vehicle is parked.
The police will often write a warning ticket for such a violation. In the case pictured above, there was one other piece of vehicular code in play, parking in the handicap spot.
Sec. 15-133. Designation of parking spaces reserved for persons with disabilities; unlawful use of such spaces.
(b) Any vehicle properly displaying a disabled parking license plate or removable windshield placard issued pursuant to Va. Code § 46.2-731, § 46.2-739(b) or § 46.2-1241 may be parked in a parking space reserved for persons with disabilities for up to twenty-four (24) hours, subject to the restrictions set forth in subsection (c) herein. It shall be unlawful for a vehicle not displaying disabled parking license plates or removable windshield placards issued pursuant to Va. Code § 46.2-731, § 46.2-739(b) or § 46.2-1241 to be parked in any space reserved for persons with disabilities.
Send a letter to Governor McDonnell urging him to craft a watershed implementation plan with substance. If the EPA doesn’t receive an actionable and adequate plan written by our State, the EPA will craft the plan, an outcome no one wants.
The properties here, in the land use plan, grey is manufacturing, the yellow is single family residential. So as you can see very clearly from this map there is a fine line between, a very hard line between industrial and residential. Not something that is typical in a land use plan or in a zoning ordinance.—7/13/06
Yellow poplar (Liriodendron) is notorious for shedding many leaves during summer droughts, sycamore (Platanus) sheds some leaves, and buckeye (Aesculus) may shed all of its leaves as drought continues. On the other hand, leaves of dogwood (Cornus) usually wilt and die rather than abscise. If water becomes available later in the growing season, some trees defoliated by drought may produce a second crop of leaves from previously dormant buds. Many times these leaves are stunted.–Dr. Kim D. Coder
These three trees planted in 2009, a swamp white oak and two sycamores in Riverview Park, need water. Trees are like dogs, or children, if you plant two inch caliper ($100) trees, they have to be cared for until their root systems are established.
