Sorry we’re a little late. Days off have a tendency to push everything back. But four stories you should know about:
-Planning Commission Chairman Jeff Aimonetti’s funeral is being held today. Planning Administrator Chris Boies explains the process for replacing Mr. Aimonetti here.
-Speaking of Mr. Boies, he is leaving his job at the end of the month to become the town manager iin New Market. From what I’ve seen at Planning Meetings, they’ve made an excellent choice. Chris really knows his stuff for a 27 year old.
-And speaking of youth, 19-yeard old Justin Ritenour officially became Shenandoah County’s youngest elected official on Tuesday when he was sworn in as a member of the Strasburg Town Council.
-Bob Goodlatte: World Traveler. Or at least this week, anyways, Bob Goodlatte reports from Afghanistan, where the U.S. has been facing a surge in violence. Still, the Congressman points out some improvement on some important fronts, including the fact that the nation has been holding free and fair elections since the Taliban was removed from power.
