The local Sierra Club is ratcheting up the pressure to eliminate traditional pesticides on school campuses across the city. Retired educator John Cruickshank (pictured) has told the Charlottesville School Board he has more than 700 names on a petition. Sierra Club members also made a similar presentation during a City Council meeting. They have also focused on pesticide use in the city’s park system. The school board has asked senior staff members to investigate the issue and report back later this year.
The wife of the Scottsville man who was missing for a week says he was without medication because he can't afford since the city fired him and left him without insurance, something the Pippins hope to fight in court.
His condition has gone from critical to serious, but his body has yet to heal from multiple shark bites.
You can sign up from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Monticello.
