JAMES CITY-Toano recently welcomed a new business. Jolly Pond Hardwoods opened a location on Richmond Road in September in the space formerly occupied by Ballava’s Mexitalian Restaurant.

Jolly Pond Hardwoods specializes in repurposed wood. The business mills lumber that has been reclaimed from local residential and commercial tree removals. Jolly Pond Hardwoods first started milling and airdrying walnut, cherry, hickory, maple, and red and white oak trees a few years ago. Currently, the following sustainable hardwood slabs are available for purchase: walnut, cherry poplar, red oak, and white oak, among others, for DIY projects.

Jolly Pond Hardwoods had a soft opening over Labor Day weekend in early September. The business, which is located at 7816 Richmond Road, is open by appointment only. For more information, (757) 690-0028 or click here.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
