Town manager Ricky Reese dies at age 60
Chase City school initiative began with a realization of the woes that kids face
Property owner Justin Smith says he has made no decisions on what to do with the razed site on Main Street in Chase City — a topic of discussion at Monday’s meeting of Chase City Town Council.
Artist Steve Leach joined members of the Future of Chase City committee — Debra DeSantis, Lisa Gillispie and Chase City Police Sgt. Will Stembridge — to dedicate the town’s pocket park at the corner of Main and Second Streets in Chase City. The dedication took place Saturday morning ahead of the town’s Earth Day cleanup, at the corner site where the old Leggett Department Store was torn down after its roof collapsed. The park has been made possible by various companies, business leaders, and students at Bluestone High School who built benches and flower boxes, painted walls and installed mulch to beautify the area. Chase City Art Club founder Elsa Christina Gailor received funding from the Virginia Tourism Corporation for the Love Arch — designed and fabricated by Leach — that marks the entrance to the park. Local iron worker and sculptor Fred Cartwright added his work entitled “Hang Your Hat and Stay Awhile.” (Susan Kyte photo)
