There was a lot of emotion from the Augusta County Board of Supervisors, which passed a resolution honoring fallen Marine Jason Redifer.

Members of Redifer's family were in attendance to receive a copy of the resolution which named him as a member of Augusta County, and recounted his service as a sniper in the US Marine Corps.

It was read aloud by chairman Jim Bailey. Some board members knew Redifer personally and wanted to formally honor him as a resident of the county.

"The Board of Supervisors celebrates and honors the life accomplishments, and ultimate sacrifice of Lance Corporal Jason C. Redifer... and wishes to express its most sincere condolences to the family of Lance Corporal Jason C. Redifer," said Bailey when reading the resolution.

The board also voted to dismiss requirements for Sheetz in Fishersville to build a new lane near interstate 64 and Tinkling Spring Road.

A Sheetz representative says they couldn't get clearance from the state to construct that lane, making it impossible to be in code.

The Supervisors agreed, saying there will be additional lanes added anyway because the area is on the state's six year plan.

Finally, the county took the first steps toward new tennis courts in Stuarts Draft.

The board approved public use status for a 1.2 acre lot near Stuarts Draft Highway and School Boulevard.

A school representative says tennis courts are in fact in the plans for that area, but they couldn't move forward without the public use designation.

The requests for both issues were passed unanimously.
