Sperryville column for March 31

Thank you! This is the message from the residents on Main Street, Water Street and U.S. 522 (and from those who live off the main roads but who walk along our streets) to the Sheriff and her great team of deputies! On Sunday (March 27) alone, residents lost count after hearing the great sound of the cruiser’s siren eight times and seeing eight cars and trucks stopped on various streets in our village. People were running across streets smiling to tell their neighbors; others were calling friends and neighbors. The sound of joy reverberated on every start of the siren — “there he goes again!” […]

Sperryville: Shopping local boosts community retailers

We are so lucky to live in Sperryville. Just consider some of the local shopping venues. While out and about on the west end of U.S. 211, get a cup of coffee while you pick out your beans at Central Coffee Roasters, and then stop at Beech Springs for its popular local preserves. Continue to the Rainbow Market, our own natural and organics market at Hearthstone School, for a tube of natural toothpaste or shampoo, or stock up on organic foods. Do stop and peruse the market’s growing selection of products, and if there is something you want that they don’t have, remember to ask if it can be ordered. […]
