BEARLY FIT. Boston resident Denise Henderson caught this second-year cub exploring the yard including a complete investigation of the sunflower-seed scent coming from a sturdy (and apparently climbable) bird feeder.
REIGNING ROYALTY. Congratulations to Patrick Davis and Courtney Frazier as they were crowned king and queen of the Culpeper High School homecoming court during the halftime ceremony Friday at Broman Field. The Blue Devils hosted and shutout the Fluvanna Flucos 28-0 advancing their season record to 2-1.
POCKET PALS. It’s getting there. The E.B. Wood Community Park will soon be a reality thanks to the efforts of the Culpeper Renaissance and a cadre of volunteers. Early Saturday morning they were busy downtown working to bring the space to life. Donations always welcome. Visit www.culpeperdowntown.com or phone 825-4416.
