Three stories you should know about:

-Virginia is having its third annual sales tax holiday for back-to-school items. These things are alright, but they really tend to get in the way of meaningful tax reform. But I’ve always been a firm believer in taking what you can get, be it food, love, or tax breaks. 

-The State Water Control Board is considering measures to protect the state’s burgeoning aquaculture industry. Virginia’s oysters are said to have rejoiced at the news. 

-Jamestown has experienced a dip in visitation, and a big one at that: From 35,000 last July to 18,000 this year. Please people, as someone in the historic tourism industry, I beg of you: re-discover Virginia’s abundant historic resources. If you don’t, you may just have to suffer through even more of my blogging, as I’ll have more time on my hands.
