Man Arrested For Lovingston Fire

A Lovingston man has been arrested for setting a house on fire.

The Nelson County Sheriff’s Office says 28-year-old John Wayne Hughes is charged with arson, cruelty to animals resulting in death and violation of protective order for a May 16th fire on Mayswood Lane.

Police believe Hughes set the fire in relation to another domestic incident.

No people were injured in the blaze and police aren’t releasing further details at this time.

Kroger Union Agreement

A tentative agreement may prevent a strike at several Kroger stores including the three in Charlottesville.

Kroger and the United Food and Commercial Workers Local 400 reached the agreement after two days of negotiations.

According to a release, the plan will provide higher pay, affordable health care and pension support.

The release made no mention of paid sick days, but Kroger did go on to say the union is fully recommending the agreement for ratification by the members.

Kroger workers have been working under an extended contract after the old one expired on May 8th.
