Pine Lake Misses Nita Townes

We are all saddened by the recent passing of Juanita (Nita) Townes of Pine Lake. Nita was 89 years old and spent most of her years in Pine Lake. She was there from the earliest days.

Nita always had a smile on her face and had a wonderful sense of humor. She was proud of her garden and was happy to share its bounty.

The Importance of Street Edges

Street Edges-- the areas on either side of a motorway are important for community development. They have a positive effect on businesses and make an area desirable for shopping and strolling.

I would think a rework of the Rockbridge corridor through Pine Lake would be a priority for those wishing to improve the business district. There are, thankfully, sidewalks already, but more is needed.

I just came across this article by Dan Burden. It's comprehensive and well-written with all lingo described fully.
