the shovel was a great invention. Thinking about changing my last name to Busmalis. Simple tool. No batteries required. Capable of great things. Always digging a hole.

I’ve been asking people not to smile for 30+ years. I like the way these two handled the request.

Chubby fetches the DP

Olive and Chubby built their Woolen Mills house in 1939. I admire his service record. Daily Progress has that story.

Additionally, I admire his persistence, his neighborliness. He always had a kind word. He lived on, beyond Olive, beyond five siblings. It takes a lot of courage to age in place. Chubby Proffitt had courage.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I took me awhile to realize the photo above was of the former Mayor of our City. Gravitas!
