JABA and Mountainside to Celebrate Opening of Memory Care Floor in Crozet An official Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for JABA’s new memory care floor at Mountainside Senior Living in Crozet,

Virginia will take place on Thursday, February 15 from 12 to 2 p.m. “A local market study of the need for affordable dementia care in the Charlottesville area is what motivated us to create personalized memory care,” says Marta Keane, CEO of JABA. “The study estimated that there are 400 local residents in need of specialized memory care. To respond appropriately, JABA will open the Blue Ridge Neighborhood at Mountainside. We are already the largest non-profit affordable assisted living facility in the area, and we expect our memory care rooms to be affordable, relative to the market, allowing more choices for potential residents and their families.” The Blue Ridge Neighborhood is a separate and secure environment, providing peace of mind for family members. Residents will enjoy a large common area where they can participate in activities that are personalized to their interests and needs, join in conversation, or take advantage of the Quiet Room. Certified dementia care staff will assure the residents are receiving the best care possible. The renovation also extends the already beautiful views of the Blue Ridge Mountains from Mountainside’s balconies. The new floor was designed by Charlottesville-based Johnson, Craven, & Gibson Architects, which for nearly 70 years, has been renovating and restoring some our area’s finest properties. About JABA Since 1975, the Jefferson Area Board for Aging, JABA, has been serving the needs of the aging community in the Thomas Jefferson Planning district (the city of Charlottesville and the counties of Albemarle, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa and Nelson). Through the years, from our roots as a federally mandated Area Agency on Aging to our current position as one of the most innovative and successful aging organizations, JABA has never lost focus of the needs and desires of the community. Working with state and local government, educational institutions, private citizens of all ages, businesses, and other nonprofit organizations, JABA has consistently risen to the challenge of its mission: to promote, establish and preserve communities for healthy aging that benefit individuals and families of all ages.

About Mountainside Senior Living Mountainside Senior Living is the Charlottesville area’s most affordable assisted living facility. Located in the quaint historic town of Crozet, Virginia, just 15 miles west of Charlottesville, MSL provides a warm and welcoming environment, advanced medical services, transportation for outings, three fresh and locally sourced meals a day prepared by our in-house chef, a vigorous activities program, and plenty of community involvement. Mountainside Senior Living is a non-profit 501(3)(c) organization under the direction of Jefferson Elder Care, LLC and is managed by the Jefferson Area Board for Aging (JABA). MSL takes residents without regard to age, disability, race, color, sex, national origin, sexual orientation or genetic information, and is a winner of the 2010 Commonwealth Council on Aging Best Practice Award, and the 2007 Governor’s Housing Award.

UVA President-Elect James E. Ryan Joins 2018 Virginia Festival of the Book Line-Up A program of Virginia Foundation for the Humanities (VFH), the Virginia Festival of the Book, announced today that University of Virginia president-elect James E. Ryan has joined the 2018 Festival line-up for March. Author of Wait, What?: And Life’s Other Essential Questions, he will be featured in a FREE public program, titled “Life’s Essential Questions: A Conversation with Jim Ryan,” on Saturday, March 24 at 4:00 p.m. at the Paramount Theater in downtown Charlottesville. “This beautiful book describes how to ask questions of others and ourselves that lead to a deep understanding about what matters most in life. The lessons are timeless, providing powerful insights that are relevant in all parts of our lives.”—Tina Seelig, author of What I Wish I Knew When I Was 20. Jim Ryan is the eleventh dean of the Harvard Graduate School of Education and president-elect of the University of Virginia. Before joining Harvard, he was the Matheson & Morgenthau Distinguished Professor at the University of Virginia Law School. What: Life’s Essential Questions: A Conversation with Jim Ryan When: Saturday, March 24, 2018, from 4:00-5:30 p.m. Where: The Paramount Theater, 215 East Main Street, Charlottesville, Virginia Cost: FREE. Tickets are required. Visit VaBook.org for additional details About the Book: Whether we’re in the boardroom or the classroom, we

spend far too much time and energy looking for the right answer. But the truth is that questions are just as important as answers, often more so. Asking a good question requires us to move beyond what we think we know about an issue or a person to explore the difficult and the unknown, the awkward, and even the unpleasant. In Wait, What?, Jim Ryan celebrates the art of asking—and answering— good questions. Using examples from politics, history, popular culture, and social movements, as well as his own personal life, Ryan demonstrates how these essential inquiries generate understanding, spark curiosity, initiate progress, fortify relationships, and draw our attention to the important things in life—from the Supreme Court to Fenway Park. By regularly asking these five essential questions, Ryan promises, we will be better able to answer life’s most important question: “And did you get what you wanted out of life, even so?” At once hilarious and illuminating, poignant and surprising, Wait, What? is an inspiring book of wisdom that will forever change the way you think about questions. About the Virginia Festival of the Book: A signature program of Virginia Foundation for the Humanities (VFH) and the Virginia Center for the Book, the Virginia Festival of the Book brings readers and writers together for a five-day program of mostly free events including author readings, book signings, panel discussions, programs for children, and more. The 24th annual Festival will be held March 21-25, 2018, in Charlottesville and Albemarle County, Virginia. The Festival has consistently attracted audiences of more than 20,000 from more than forty states each year, with an estimated local economic impact of about $4 million annually. To learn more, browse the full schedule, or purchase tickets to select programs, visit VaBook.org. About VFH: The mission of Virginia Foundation for the Humanities (VFH) is to connect people and ideas to explore the human experience and inspire cultural engagement. VFH reaches an estimated annual audience of 23 million through Community Programs, Digital Initiatives, Scholarship, and the Virginia Center for the Book.

ou can hardly find a prettier name, or a friendlier, more community-oriented corner of Virginia than the lovely slice of the Shenandoah Valley called Augusta County. Driving through Augusta, “You wave and people wave back,” says REALTOR® Kenny Sprouse. “Everybody’s friendly here,” agrees REALTOR® Laura Floyd, who, like Sprouse, is a lifelong happy resident. “It’s a great place to raise a family, with good schools for the kids to go to, and a lot of community involvement. People always look out for their neighbors.” Named after an 18th century princess of Wales, mother to Britain’s King George III, Augusta County was established in 1738. Its territory at the time extended “to the utmost limits of Virginia,” which effectively meant all the way to the Mississippi, given that Britain claimed ownership that far west. West Virginia, Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan and part of Pennsylvania were all eventually created out of the original Augusta County. “Augusta County is one of the oldest counties in Virginia, and one of the largest,” says Waynesboro-born REALTOR® Debbie Shickel. “It has a lot of history.” That history includes Grandma Moses (1860-1961), the folk artist who didn’t take up painting till age 78, but upon her death was recognized by President John F. Kennedy as “a beloved figure from American life.” Moses and her husband worked on Staunton-area farms for nearly 20 years. That history also includes President Woodrow Wilson, whose Staunton birthplace—called the Manse—was built in 1846 and today houses his official presidential library and museum. Dwight D. Eisenhower toured Wilson’s birthplace in October, 1960 and addressed a crowd of 5,000 on the front portico of Mary Baldwin College. Eisenhower also made time for the Stover property in nearby Fort Defiance, the white frame structure where his mother was born. Some Augusta folks remember gathering in freezing temperatures at the Staunton train station in March 1969, to pay their respects to the former president as the train carrying Eisenhower’s body to its Kansas burial pulled in. “You can see the Blue Ridge and the Allegheny Mountains here,” Shickel says. “It’s generally fairly green, and the climate is fairly temperate—cooler than Charlottesville in the summer, but we get more snow. Other than I-81, which is the bane of my existence, driv-

Dubbed the “Breadbasket of the Confederacy” during the Civil War, but subject to burning and wrecking under Union Major Gen. Philip H. Sheridan, Augusta County in the 21st century is culturally vibrant and economically diverse. Manufacturing supplies many Augusta jobs today; Hershey Chocolate and the Target Distribution Center, both in Stuarts Draft, are among its most well-known employers. “We have a very diverse economy,” notes Marshall Pattie of the Augusta County Board of Supervisors. “We survive economic downturns better than most communities do.” “About 20 percent of Augusta County’s workforce is employed in manufacturing,” says Amanda Glover, Augusta County Director of Economic Development. “With companies like McKee Foods, Hershey Chocolate, Shamrock, PlyGem, and Daikin, Augusta County has a solid manufacturing base that tends to be concentrated in the Stuarts Draft, Verona, and Weyers Cave areas. “Fishersville is our growing life sciences corridor, with anchors such as Augusta Health, Murphy Deming College of Health Sciences, and the Wilson Workforce Rehabilitation Center, among others,” Glover added.

“The greater Augusta County region is an optimum location for doing business,” says Annette Medlin, IOM, President/CEO of the Greater Augusta Regional Chamber of Commerce. “We are centrally located to high profile metropolitan areas; offer multiple modes of transportation including two Interstate highways, rail and air; have a blended business climate that includes manufacturing, agriculture, small business and a welcoming environment for start-ups. “And, all these wonderful assets and this pro-business culture live in a geographical landscape that is remarkably beautiful. One fantastic package, that’s the greater Augusta County region!”

Training and Education A great deal of training and education take place in the county as well. Mary Baldwin University in Staunton, founded in 1842, is a highly ranked residential women’s college which also offers an online program for both men and women and an adult degree program. Last year, for the first time in its history, it began admitting male residential students. Blue Ridge Community College in Weyer’s Cave, founded in 1967, offers programs of instruction including associate degrees, diplomas, and certificates in occupational/technical and college/university transfer programs. The College also provides non-credit workforce training and special interest classes for individuals, business, and industry.

Augusta’s Agriculture Family farms have been a major presence in Augusta County since the Germans, Scots-Irish, and English settled there in the 18th century. With 1,729 farms on 286,195 acres, Augusta currently has more farm acreage than any other Virginia county. In terms of agricultural output, Augusta is the second most productive county in the Commonwealth, but it ranks first in the state for production of beef cattle and sheep and lambs, and second in milk cow products. Home to more than 30,000 head of beef cattle and 9,000 sheep and lambs, it is also one of the state’s largest poultry producers. “The agricultural component is a big part of who we are as people and as a community,” Glover says. “The farms in Augusta County contribute to our beautiful landscape, and our agricultural heritage has shaped our strong work ethic for centuries. We have both traditional farming operations as well as fascinating agri-tourism destinations, including a farm-brewery with hops grown on-site.” “A lot of people around here have mini-farms,” Shickel said. “They move here and want just small acreage; they want to be able to have a horse or a cow. A lot are getting goats now, and some people raise llamas. You have people

who have organic farms, who participate in the farmers markets. “A lot of people on farms are trying to give people the farm experience; some of the farms have been turned into little vineyards and wineries. Baron Ridge Vineyards was a farm at one time. Then you have people who raise vegetables and animals in small production. We have a big farm to table thing here, so a lot of the local restaurants get their meat and seasonal produce here locally.” So do a lot of shoppers. The Staunton Farmers Market, open only to growers within a 75-mile radius of the city, dates to 1993 when it opened with just six vendors at the Wharf parking lot downtown. Nowadays the market is open seasonally on Wednesdays and Saturdays in the same location.

Gardeners love Andre Viette Farm & Nursery in Fishersville, where the tree and flower display gardens are open year round and stretch across more than six acres. Beer lovers can spend a long weekend sampling Augusta’s brews and enjoying its scenery. Staunton alone has four breweries; Waynesboro has three more. Stable Craft Brewing is located on a former horse farm, Waynesboro Stables, where Tennessee Walkers were once raised and trained. When Craig and Nikki Nargi bought the property and its 288-foot barn in 2006, they renamed it Hermitage Hill Farm and Stables and began running it as a horse boarding facility, but already they dreamed of hosting weddings, receptions, private parties, and corporate events. Craig took their plans to Richmond and lobbied for legislation, eventually passed, that helped kick start the fledgling agri-tourism business. The renovated barn, with heat and air-conditioning, piped-in music, upgraded plumbing, and wiring, opened for festivities in 2008.

After a day in the country, a night on the town can mean great music, worldclass Shakespeare, and the streets that time forgot. “Staunton is an older city with a lot of charm and character,” Floyd says. “I like to go downtown and support the many small businesses.” REALTOR® Ed Davis concurs: “It’s like small town America still. It’s like a lot of seniors remember small towns used to be, when people knew each other.” And in recent years, “it’s become a little cultural center.” The American Shakespeare Center celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, and its 17th in the handsome Blackfriars Playhouse, the world’s only re-creation of Shakespeare’s own indoor theatre. While the Center performs some contemporary work, it is best known for its brisk and lively performances of the Bard’s own plays observing late 16th/early 17th century conventions: house lights up, actors doubling roles (and some Shakespeare-style gender confusion), minimal sets, and a sprinkling of songs. ASC Shakespeare is not stuffy. Many sophisticated homebuyers flock to Staunton for the quality and diversity of its architecture. The city boasts homes and buildings in many noted styles including Federal, Greek Revival, Italianate, Folk Victorian, Queen Anne and Colonial Revival. Perhaps most prized are the homes designed by local architect T.J. Collins, who designed or remodeled over 200 Staunton structures in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Waynesboro has its own great homes, but prices are lower on average, and it’s a good place to look for starter homes. With the hospital bringing new people to the Valley, and with home prices about a third less than in

Charlottesville, the area right around Fishersville, a town of about 8,000 people, is growing. In fact the city was ranked #1 in Top Places for First-Time Home Buyers in Virginia by Nerdwallet. com in 2015. (Stuarts Draft was ranked #6.) Among the major local employers are Augusta Health, a 224-bed general medical and surgical hospital in Fishersville, Target Distribution Center, Hershey, Hollister and McKee Foods (makers of Little Debbie Snacks) in Stuarts Draft. The area has also become a bedroom community for people working in Charlottesville. “I like the people, I like the history, I like the pace of life,” Shickel says. “You have a lot of educational opportunities, and the people here are friendly, and in Staunton we have a thriving arts community. There is a lot of charity work that goes on. But the lifestyle is not fast. It’s a slower pace of life. You can take part in any activities you want to and if you don’t feel like taking part you can be at home and do your own thing.” n

FEBRUARY 14 - FEBRUARY 20. 2018 ISSUE 2707

S

omehow this is the time of year when lots of people want to improve, brighten up, and make a change. If you’re seized by that urge, it’s always a good idea to look ahead to when you might decide to sell. Why not make improvements with an eye to attracting a future buyer and then enjoy the changes yourself right now?

Get Out The Paint Brush First of all, just about everybody likes a place that looks fresh, clean, and spacious, and the quickest and least expensive way to add value is simply repainting. Flat white walls seem unfinished these days so chose colors that charm and delight. Bring in nature with soothing blues and greens. Or be lively with warmer tones like reds or corals. Select a color to compliment your carpet, your couch, or a favorite wall hanging. If you might be selling in the next few years, opt for colors that are generally popular and fairly neutral. Neutrals today have moved beyond white, beige, or ivory and include pale greens, blues or grays. Check out local model homes because they’ll be decorated with tones that have tested high for buyer preference. Visiting the websites of various paint manufacturers is also a wonderful way to find ideas. To emphasize your home’s positive outlook, paint the front door an inviting, hearty color. For interior drama, consider painting just one wall of a room in a bold tone while leaving the others a complimentary neutral.

CAAR REAL ESTATE WEEKLY WWW.CAAR.COM

Bring In Light Other relatively inexpensive strategies include replacing dark drapes with fabrics that are lighter in both color and weight. Depending on what you see out your windows, you might even remove curtains entirely, replacing them with blinds that can be lowered, when needed, for privacy. (Some blinds also provide insulation from heat and cold.) Replacing old light fixtures—the ones by your front door—also makes an instant difference. Another way to bring in light is with skylights or solar tubes. Skylights are simply a “window” in the roof while a solar tube admits light through a small clear dome in the roof to shine through a reflective tube—which is often angled—to bring light into a room. Skylights come in a range of sizes and styles. In fact, some have built in blinds while others open with cranks, small motors, or even solar power.

ADD

VALUE

to Your Home Without

BREAKING THE BANK BY MARILYN PRIBUS

Skylights are usually installed professionally, especially if they are wider than the space between the roof rafters, since extra bracing must be created. Note that up to 30 percent of the cost of buying certain skylights and their cost of installation may be directly deductible as a federal tax credit through 2019. Some solar tubes also qualify for the tax credit and can often be installed by an experienced do-it-yourselfer.

Jazz Up The Bathroom Bathrooms are another place where relatively inexpensive upgrades can make a big impact. We tend to stop really seeing things we’re around every day, but sometimes

something as simple as a bright new designer shower curtain can add pizzazz. Replacing dated light fixtures and installing coordinated towel bars are also attractive strategies, and updating the medicine cabinet is another inexpensive plan. A slightly more expensive investment would be a new floor. New countertops can be installed over existing cabinetry. And, of course, getting out the paint brush can make a big difference for a small cost and effort.

Kitchen Improvements Spiffing up the kitchen is generally a more ambitious proposition but kitchen remodeling is estimated to return

anywhere from 70 to more than 100 percent of the investment when the house is sold. While a complete makeover is an expensive proposition, there are more modest changes that can be made. The key is to do research and work in stages if that’s what the budget will cover. Visit model homes, home improvement stores, and websites to check out the latest styles. Again (yes, we know we’ve said this before) fresh paint is the least expensive tactic. A new sink and one of those fancy new faucets can also improve the appearance. New cabinet and drawer pulls are an easy project. Next, consider upgrading cabinetry or even just repainting or replacing those dated and stained cabinet doors. Probably the biggest impact comes from upgrading tired old counters. Granite, while popular these days, can cost up to $100 per square foot installed. Less expensive options include composites, laminates, poured concrete, or butcher block. Laminate, for example, generally runs from $10 to $20 per square foot installed and comes in many colors and styles. Some composite materials may arrive in pieces for ease of production and transportation, but are finished in the home with no visible seams Finally, refinishing on old floor or installing a new one can make things appear brand new at a relatively modest cost. Ceramic tile resists wear, spills, and stains while today’s vinyl flooring comes in a wide range of styles and colors. Some styles mimic wood or tile floors, but with much easier maintenance. Why not pick a project to perk up your home’s interior this spring? There are so many options for you to enjoy. n Marilyn Pribus and her husband live in Albemarle County. He sealed the kitchen floor with polyurethane after a professional sander had revived darkened wood and removed old stains. “It was amazing how much it improved the kitchen,” she says.
