Driving through Churchville on 250 is a pleasant experience this time of year. The trees are turning lovely colors and many folks have gone all out decorating for Halloween. I should have taken some pictures of both of those things.
Instead, I stopped numerous times to photo the many No Pipeline signs folks had in yards and on fences. Some were from the Augusta County Alliance – a group worth checking out, but there were many homemade ones as well, all pulling on different reasons that the proposed natural gas pipeline by Dominion Resources (sister company to Dominion Power) is a bad idea and a bad fit for these areas.

I was very impressed by the level of visual resistance shown in these communities. The local paper where I was, the Highland Recorder had numerous articles and interviews on the topic as well.
