The Hanover School Board has sent the message that non-resident families with students here will be expected to pay tuition if they want to stay enrolled in Hanover County Public Schools. And it’s only fair that they do. Hanover County taxpayers collectively will pay over $4,300 per student in the 2015-16 school year, and that’s not including the taxes they pay to the state government.

    Thanks to Hanover sheriff’s deputies On May 5, I was involved in a two-vehicle accident that totaled my car. Thankfully, no one was hurt. I just want to publicly thank the two Hanover deputies that came to my aid. They were very caring and professional and followed up with me in the following days. I appreciate our law enforcement and what they do to assist citizens in time of need.

    CNN’s Chris Cuomo said on Twitter earlier this month, “Hate speech is excluded from protection. Don’t just say you love the Constitution. Read it.” [Tweet edited only for proper capitalization and punctuation.] He’s wrong, of course.

    Ashland Neighborhood proposal is ‘most unimaginative’ I attended the Town Council meeting on May 5 and was impressed by both the presentation by the town staff and the informed comments made by citizens about the proposed large residential development at the western entrance into the town of Ashland.

    By Ragan Phillips In the Spring 2015 issue of the Hanover Review, Wayne Hazzard, chairman of the Board of Supervisors, penned a note for the public. Mr. Hazzard writes, “…I think 2015 is going to be a good year because of the way your Board of Supervisors started it.

    The 2015 Board of Supervisors election seems relatively calm so far. With candidates’ deadline to declare just over a month away (June 9), only two of Hanover’s seven magisterial districts have contested races. In the Mechanicsville District, Glenn Millican is challenging incumbent Canova Peterson, and in the Ashland District, Web Stokes and Faye Prichard are vying for the seat being vacated by Ed Via, who has chosen not to seek

    County finances are in excellent shape I was at a county finance meeting recently and heard some great news. Because of the financial practices that have been initiated, the financial status of this county is outstanding. Because of these futuristic moves, the county is able to provide much-needed services now instead of five or 10 years down the road. Because of these, our county is one of the few in
