Police announced this afternoon that their investigation into what was initially believed to be afatal fire on Rugby Avenue is now a homicide investigation. In a carefully worded story, and not citing specific sources, WTVR reports that forensic evidence belonging to Jesse Matthew Jr., the main suspect in the disappearance of Hannah Graham, matches forensic evidence collected during the investigation of Morgan Harrington 2009 murder. In the wake of Hannah Graham disappearance, and the evidence that came from private security footage, city officials are revisiting the question of installing security cameras on the downtown mall. Both Charlottesville Registrar Sheri Iachetta and former Electoral Board member Stephanie Commander have turned themselves in to the police on foursix and four felony counts of embezzlement, respectively. In 2012, Council approved a new student housing complex on West Main now some council members are questioning whether what they were shown matches what was built. The Architectural Review Board has approved a bike themed mural on West Market, below the McGuffey Art Center, although at least one member expressed concerns that it might look like the bicyclists were riding away from Charlottesville’s downtown. City Police Chief Tim Longo is meeting with city leaders to work on protocols regarding the use of military surplus police weapons in Charlottesville.

PLAINS TWP. There are so many things we miss during these self isolating pandemic times.

Hopefully, we will soon be able to return to doing some of the things we enjoy, albeit with restrictions. In other words, get used to wearing those masks, make sure you have gallons of hand sanitizer and, for crying out loud, practice social distancing.

OK, now let examine some of the things we miss most.

Socializing in public places check.

Attending/watching live sporting events check.

Dining out in our favorite restaurants check.

Attending live concerts/shows check.

I could go on and on and on. We all long for a return to normalcy to be able to watch TV news and not hear the words pandemic, coronavirus, social distancing, self isolation, or mitigation.

And then right in the middle of all this, for me anyway, comes this craving for a fresh, homegrown tomato sandwich.

Yep, that right. A juicy red tomato sliced perfectly and placed between two slices of rye bread and some mayo and away we go.

I purchased a couple of greenhouse grown tomatoes the other day. I made a sandwich. It wasn bad, but the taste of those locally grown tomatoes just wasn there, leaving my craving unsatisfied.

That all I want. I don need to add lettuce or bacon or avocado or anything. Just a few slices of tomato, a little salt and pepper, mayo and rye bread. And I promise you, I will not grill this sandwich. I will savor the juicy taste and I will be forever grateful.
