The Rural Virginian

  • RVCC Treasure Chest is a trove for the community

                If you're looking for a new outfit, a fascinating book to read or a piece of furniture to make your room complete, the Rockfish Valley Community Center Treasure Chest might have just what you're looking for.  Best of all, the proceeds from this Nelson County thrift shop help benefit those in the community.
  • Steam engines spin up nostalgia at Pasture Party

                We've come a long way since the days of steam powered engines, the first tractors and other early model farming equipment.  With massive combines and ploughs that can work hundreds of acres in a day, it's easy to forget just how it all began.
  • Power plant celebrates 10-year anniversary

    Faced with adversity in the beginning, the Tenaska Virginia Generating Station in Scottsville is celebrating its 10-year anniversary next month.  When the facility's zoning permit was approved by the Fluvanna Planning Commission in 2001, it was considered a controversial decision at the time, but Tenaska has risen above the negativity and established itself as a valuable asset to the community, supporting the schools, Sheriff's Office and other social services.

Grace & Glory Tackles Hunger

“When you give a luncheon or a dinner, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors, in case they may invite you in return, and you would be repaid. But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame and the blind. And you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you, for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.” -from the Gospel of Luke, Chapter 14.
