Good old country music
Free public entertainment at Sperryville United Methodist Church is open to all! It’s this Saturday, starting at 7 p.m. Everyone is invited to stop by for some great music by the Troubadours and other local musical groups.

Happy Birthday
Hunter Jenkins is 14 years old today (March 18), so if you see him, wish him a great big happy birthday!

It’s Shenandoah Drive
Shenandoah Drive is the correct name for Danny Seabolt’s group, mentioned in the column two weeks ago on Beverly’s reopening of the F.T. Valley Store. Be sure to check them out at www.shenandoahdrive.com or call 540-987-8497 to book them!

The law in Sperryville
Our non-storefront business of the week is The Howell Law Firm PLLC. Kyra Howell closed her storefront office on Main Street in 2008 after her third child was born. She returned to a practice that is home-based, using the family doctor model – visiting clients in the privacy of their home.

Howell specializes in estate planning and wants you to know that it is for everyone, not just the wealthy, and can refer you to web sites where you can download, for free, forms for temporary or permanent guardian(s) for your children, for example, which only need be notarized to be legal documents. This small step could keep them from time in foster care while family is being located if something were to happen to their parents.

The Howell Law Firm, PLLC is one of only approximately 70 law firms to earn the designation of Personal Family Lawyer by the Family Wealth Planning Institute, as well as the designation of Creative Business Lawyer.

Kyra and Steve Howell bought their house in 2001 as weekenders, and like many of us, made themselves into permanent residents not long after. They live in their great old farmhouse at F.T. Valley Road and Ashby Road with their children, Mason, Lilliane and Carson, a dog and three cats.

Call Kyra at 540-987-8380 for all things legal – she would be happy to be the contact for you on any issue, and refer you to a specialist if necessary. Also visit her at www.thehowelllawfirm.com. She works on a flat fee per project, so you don’t have to worry about all those hourly rates adding up; and just recently she has also added business documents and maintenance to her portfolio.
