I’m Ellen Moore Osborne and I’m running for Albemarle School Board because I believe EVERY student deserves a chance to be successful.
My two children have attended Albemarle County schools for the past 12 years. It has been a positive experience (for the most part), but I know that’s not the case for every student. I want ALL children to have the opportunities and success that mine have had in the public school system.

Happening today in Scottsville!Today (Wednesday), the batteaux travel from Howardsville to the river town of Scottsville. For many old timey batteau men and women, the 12 miles from Howardsville to Scottsville is their favorite day of the festival. The anticipation of reaching the Horseshoe Bend and a real city (Scottsville, population 575) brings with it hope for a shower and restaurant-cooked meal. There they will be greeted by the Scottsville Batteau Festival with exhibits, crafts, food, and music. But more than that the river presents challenges and history perhaps as much if not more than any other day. Four miles into the day Goosby Falls presents one of the most difficult situations which the festival will face. At low water levels the batteaux look like they’re in a pinball machine navigating wildly from one bank to the other and back again bouncing off one rock then another. The famed “Oldsmobile” named for the fact that this rock is the size of one, and many other challenges make this rapid arguably the most fun of the entire festival. At the bottom of the rapid, boats congregate to tell lies about how they didn’t scratch a rock and watch intently as other crews negotiate the challenge. Truth be told, in addition to talking and resting at the bottom of this stretch, many boats are also repaired at this location having met the “Oldsmobile” up close. Having made it through Goosby, the batteaux pass Warren’s Ferry which formerly ferried cars across the James until a flood took the ferry. Just before Rock Island and river right is one of the best preserved sluices from the 1700s. Run it for fun and history, and also to miss the river-wide shoal which made it necessary. Four miles before reaching Scottsville is Perkins Falls and Hatton Ferry. The ferry operates on weekends from mid-April to late October. This is the mid-point of the JRBF, a fun stop for spectators and river rats alike! #JRBF #2019JRBF Click the link below for a map. www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/viewer?mid=1U5jRFuMR-w979nbOW0Ey1m1XpYQ&hl=en&ll=37.797707999999986%2C-... ...
