Free Loft Bed

Rolling Road – I hope you have followed the exchange on NextDoor with other communities concerning Rolling Road widening project. Honestly, it appears that VDOT and our elected officials are prospecting for more comments in support of a raised median and a separate bike lane on both northbound and southbound lanes as part of the final design. If you aren’t up to speed on this project, go to and there you’ll find the address for comments.


Christmas Tree Pickup – AAA Trash/Republic will pick up Christmas trees on the first two Wednesdays of 2017. From now until 1 March, they will pick up some yard debris on Mondays, but household trash is their priority.


Welcome Home – US Coast Guard Academy 3rd Class Katrina Cooley is home for a short visit before heading back to New London, CT to continue her education.


I remind you that when I have something to include about your joyous family news, I won’t bore you with news about mine. I’d hope this is a good way for you to boast about your family’s promotions, engagements, marriages, birthdays, graduations and other joyous family news.


Stay safe, party safe and get home safely!


John Cooley
