• With many of their regular volunteers out sick or out of town, occasional volunteer help is needed now at The Treasure Chest. "We need some short-term help in the sorting area for just a few hours or just a single day, whatever works for you," says the Rockfish Valley Community Center. See the details here on how you can help.
• Last Wednesday, after a test of the proposed community sirens, Wintergreen Fire & Rescue Chief Curtis Sheets said, "Please understand today's test was in no way an indication of how our system will ultimately perform."
