RAPIDLY DEVELOPING & ANSWERS STILL FEW. Sources: New Interim Administrator John Anzivino of Urbanna will begin his Nottoway duties at 12 Noon tomorrow (Tuesday). Meanwhile, long-time assistant administrator John Prosise, who earlier this year announced plans to retire no later than June 30th, reportedly is working his last day TODAY. Efforts to obtain a copy Mr. Anzivino's contract, which reportedly is for four months, are still unsuccessful. Mr. Prosise says he hasn't seen it. Meanwhile, the news room has received no answers as to the Board's plans moving forward for hiring a permanent administrator. The County has received 20 applications but, to the newsroom's knowledge, no candidates have been scheduled for interviews. Mr. Anzivino has a record of serving local governments that are undergoing change and, in some cases, upheaval. We will continue to monitor developments and seek more information.

JUST IN -- (would have been nice to have received this earlier in the week for our print edition):

(BLACKSTONE, Va.) –The Virginia Department of Health (VDH) and the Virginia Department of Emergency Management (VDEM), in partnership with the Virginia National Guard (VNG), will open a Community Vaccination Clinic (CVC) in Nottoway April 19 to administer COVID-19 vaccinations at the VNG Armory in Blackstone.

“We are excited to partner with the Virginia Department of Emergency Management and the Virginia National Guard to offer another opportunity for individuals in the Piedmont Health District to receive the COVID-19 vaccine,” said Dr. Sulola Adekoya, acting director of the Piedmont Health District. “We encourage everyone in our health district to take advantage of this opportunity and get a vaccine as soon as possible.”

The CVC, sponsored by the Piedmont Health District, will operate four days a week and will administer up to 250 doses per day. All of these events are by appointment only and no walk-ins will be accepted.

Beginning April 26, individuals in the Piedmont Health District will be able to schedule their own appointments for the Nottoway CVC by visiting vaccinate.virginia.gov or calling the COVID Vaccine Hotline at 1-877-VAX-IN-VA (1-877-829-4682). Additional languages are available.

Virginia Army and Air National Guard medics trained and certified by VDH will administer the vaccines, and additional soldiers will provide wrap around logistics, administrative and traffic management support.

Below are some helpful hints for individuals with an appointment for the Nottoway CVC:

· Please plan to arrive no earlier than 20 minutes prior to your appointment time. You will not be allowed in early to receive your vaccine.
· No walk-ins will be accepted at this time. You must have a scheduled appointment.
· Please plan to bring a copy of your invitation (email, text, barcode) or proof of your name when you arrive at the site.

This community vaccination center will not replace other local, small-scale efforts to deliver COVID-19. This site is state-managed and made possible thanks to FEMA funding granted to Virginia for the state’s continued response to COVID-19. This site was selected after the VDEM conducted an equity analysis to determine the communities with the largest number of vulnerable populations and communities with the largest percentage of vulnerable population and greatest COVID-19 impact.

CORRECTIONS: In today's Courier, there are two errors. First, in the front page story 'jump' on page 2 about the search for Nottoway County's next County Administrator, Supervisor Lynn Shekleton is described as the Chair of the Board's Personnel Committee. She was Chair, but the Board recently dissolved all committees. Applications are being reviewed by Supervisor Shekleton and shared with colleagues, but there is no personnel committee, or any board committees, at this time. Also, on page 9, in the "Billable Hours" story about mounting County legal expenses, we inaccurately reported that the Board of Supervisors last month voted 5-0 to end its agreement with attorney Preston Williams. Actually, that vote was 4-1 (as we have reportedly previously). Supervisor John Roark dissented. We don't like making any errors but are glad to set the record straight -- both in print and on our page -- as soon as those mistakes are brought to our attention. Happy reading!

COURTHOUSE CONTROVERSIES CONTINUE -- A Nottoway Animal Control Officer resigned yesterday after Facebook 'rant' last week. Nottoway County's ad for its next County Administrator doesn't include a requirement that candidate establish residency in Nottoway County. During contentious exchanges last night at Board worksession, two local men (Blackstone Town Manager Philip Vannoorbeeck and former Crewe Mayor Greg Eanes) were named publicly as having "expressed interest" in the County Administrator's position. Supervisor John Roark stated publicly that the Board held a closed session this past Monday night (March 22nd) and discussed a potential candidate at an annual salary of $225,000 per year. Roark says he worries those talks might not have been legal. Roark said that in those closed door talks, one Supervisor expressed support for the potential candidate, one said No, and another said the candidate "has to apply like everyone else." Supervisor Roark alleged publicly last night, in open session, that new County Attorney Vivian Giles has forwarded some of his emails to other Board members, but hasn't been responding to his emails and also isn't including him in some of her emails with other Supervisors. Ms. Giles replied in open session that she didn't feel it was "appropriate" and that she "will not argue" with Mr. Roark. THOSE STORIES AND MORE IN YOUR NEXT COURIER.
