Honor members support reforms Back-to-Basics proposal encompasses trial jury restructuring, informed retraction implementation By Grace Hollis
Cavalier Daily Associate Editor
Will Brumas | Cavalier Daily
The Honor Committee Sunday evening continued to discuss its Back-to-Basics proposal, which would substantially overhaul the body’s current policies.
Community members and Honor representatives Sunday evening voiced support for the Back-to-Basics proposal announced at last week’s meeting. Fourth-year College student Owen Gallogly, pre-trial coordinator and co-chair of the Policies and Procedures committee, and fourth-year Engineering student Clifton Bumgardner , vice chair for trials, drafted the proposal, which would include
the simultaneous implementation of informed retraction and jury reform. Honor Committee Chair Stephen Nash said the response so far from faculty, students and Committee members has been positive and the proposal has been a decade in the making, with similar proposals coming to the fore in previous Committee discussions. Gallogly and Bumgardner’s plan would allow students who Please see Honor, Page A3
Archaeologists unearth graves Workers discover 30 unrecorded tomb shafts near University cemetery; identities remain unknown By Olivia Patton
Cavalier Daily Senior Writer Archaeologists working to expand the University cemetery last week unearthed 30 previously unrecorded grave shafts at the site of the cemetery, the University announced Friday. The identities of those buried in the graves have yet to be determined, but archival evidence suggests the graves once held enslaved African-Amer-
icans who helped build the University. The cemetery expansion project, which the University initiated in 2008, began with archeological surveys of the historically sensitive area, said Jody Lahendro, Preservation Architect and Project Manager for the Cemetery Expansion Project.

The University’s attempts to expand the cemetery located on McCormick Road led to the discovery of 30 unidentiﬁed grave shafts. Archaeologists speculate the tombs were the ﬁnal resting places of enslaved African-Americans.
U.Va. dominates Cavs capture ACC title N.C. State, 33-6 SPORTS
Buoyed by a suffocating defensive performance and strong play from both sophomore quarterback Phillip Sims and junior quarterback Michael Rocco, Virginia walloped North Carolina State 33-6 in one of the more stunning results of the college football season. The Cavaliers (3-6, 1-4 ACC) , who entered the game as 14-point underdogs, forced the Wolfpack (5-4, 2-3 ACC) into five turnovers — more takeaways than coach Mike London’s squad had mustered in the first eight games of the season combined. Sims and Rocco split time under center for the Cavalier offense on a series-by-series basis and combined to finish 20-of-33 for 198 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions. Virginia also racked up a season-high 248 yards rushing, including 115 on 25 carries from sophomore running back Kevin Parks. Sims capped Virginia’s opening drive with a one-yard touchdown run and Rocco added an 18-yard
toss to wide-open sophomore wide receiver Darius Jennings with less than a minute remaining in the first quarter to stake Virginia to a 14-0 lead. The Cavaliers defense added a safety in the second quarter on a sack by senior defensive tackle Will Hill and held the Wolfpack scoreless for the half. The onslaught continued in the third quarter as Sims completed a 38-yard touchdown to junior wide receiver Tim Smith to push the lead to 23-0. Parks punctuated the blowout victory with a 31-yard touchdown sprint with 4:28 remaining to give the Cavaliers their highest point total in an ACC game this season. The win snaps a six-game losing streak for Virginia and sustains the team’s slim hopes for bowl eligibility. Virginia must win three more games in a row to qualify, beginning with a game against Miami in Charlottesville Nov. 10.
SPORTS IN BRIEF
Jenna Truong | Cavalier Daily
Senior forward Caroline Miller scored in both tournament games to give her five straight games with a goal. The 2012 ACC Offensive Player of the Year leads the team with 16 goals, including 12 in ACC play.
The No. 8 Virginia women’s soccer team captured its second ACC Championship in team history Sunday with a sublime 4-0 victory against No. 7 Maryland. The Cavaliers (16-4-1, 6-3-1 ACC) advanced to the conference title game with a 4-2 upset of top-seeded Florida State in the semifinals Friday. Virginia needed just five minutes to pull ahead of the Seminoles on a goal by the red-hot senior forward Caroline Miller. Four minutes later, sophomore Morgan Brian added a second tally against Florida State redshirt junior goalkeeper Kelsey Wys. The Seminoles responded in the 12th minute when sophomore midfielder Dagny Brynjarsdottir beat Cavalier junior goalkeeper Danielle DeLisle to

pull within one. Florida State evened the score in the 63rd minute, but goals by Cavalier senior forward Erica Hollenberg and Brian propelled Virginia to its fourth ACC Championship appearance in team history. The Cavaliers’ near-flawless play continued Sunday in a blowout victory against the second-seeded Terrapins (13-6-2, 6-3-1 ACC), giving the team its first conference title since 2004. Virginia dominated offensively in the first half, outshooting Maryland 10-3 and adding the go-ahead tally in the 22nd minute on a strike from just outside the box by junior forward Gloria Douglas. After halftime, the Cavaliers ended the suspense surround-
ing their title pursuit with an offensive flurry. In the 53rd minute, Brian knocked in her own rebounded shot for her third goal of the tournament. Ten minutes later, Miller took a through ball from sophomore forward Danielle Colaprico and scored for the fifth straight game. Freshman forward Makenzy Doniak added a punctuation goal in the 86th minute for her ninth score of the season. Virginia will now wait for Monday night’s NCAA Tournament selection announcement to find out its postseason seed. First round action begins Friday. —compiled by Michael Eilbacher

Book School earns $896K
Andrew Mellon Foundation awards grant to further bibliographic scholarship By Shannon Reres Cavalier Daily Staff Writer
An $896,000 grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation will soon allow 20 selected scholars to study bibliography, or books as physical artifacts, at the University-based Rare Book School , the University announced last week. The Rare Book School is a nonprofit independent organization based at the University that sponsors classes for academics, historians, book collectors and archivists interested in the history of books, manuscripts and the written word. “The purpose of the grant is to help young scholars, both doctoral and untenured faculty, to learn how to read the physical objects that convey texts,” Rare Book School director Michael Suarez said. The discipline revolves around thinking of books as made up of codes, Suarez explained. Codes are embedded within the physical attributes of a book including its format, cover and bind-
ing. The bibliographer carefully examines every physical aspect of a book to interpret these codes. “Just as an archaeologist takes an artifact and tries to analyze, to reconstruct [the] circumstances of its making [in order] to understand the existence of the artifact in its cultures, so too is the book historian a kind of archaeologist of the book in which we take the material... [to] reconstruct the circumstances of its construction, distribution and consumption,” he said. The 20 scholarship recipients in 2013 will experience hands-on training at the Rare Book School, attend bibliographical field schools throughout the United States, and host symposia aimed at fostering discussion about bibliography at home institutions, said Barbara Heritage, Rare Book School assistant director and curator of collections. Bibliographic training was formerly a required element for top English literature graduate study programs, but interest in

have been informed by the Committee of a suspected honor violation to admit their wrong-doing and accept a one year academic suspension. Jury reform would restructure trial juries so that jurors are drawn from the elected Committee representatives, rather than the student body at large. The Back-to-Basics proposal attempts to iron out the functional inadequacies of the honor system. Currently the Committee handles between 40 and 80 cases per year, but recent polling suggests five percent to 18 percent of University students have committed an honor offense. “If a student realizes they did commit an honor offense without realizing it, I can only offer them 2 options: to admit guilt and leave the University, or to go through a trial and basically manipulate the system lying,” Honor Advisor Andi Cherneau said. The presence of experienced jurors adjudicating cases would increase faculty reporting and ensure Committee by-laws are universally enforced when cases come to trial, according to the proposal. “I was on two trials this
weekend and something struck me: that jurors were not paying attention, or being professional, or being engaged when it’s one of the most important moments of the accused [student’s] life,” said Austin Sim , the Medical School representative on Honor. “That we as a committee, having the expertise at a hearing, are not able to do anything spoke to the necessity for jury reform.” To pass, Back to Basics needs a two-thirds vote of support from the Committee and would then require 60 percent approval from the members of the student body who vote on the University election ballot in March. Committee members are confident these changes are what is needed to repair some of the structural problems in the honor system. “We [counselors] bear the brunt of the structural failings of Honor,” said Evan Behrle, third-year College student and Committee member. “When a student is on trial and a week later you come back to school with a student who you believe in your heart of hearts is guilty ... I’m not trying to be melodramatic, but it wears you down.”
the training has since tapered off, Suarez said. “As a result, many graduate students have not had any significant guided experience to learn how to analyze the original materials of the historical periods that they study,” Heritage said. “And when they finally do encounter those artifacts, they do not have the requisite skills to interpret the evidence before them with intellectual rigor.” The Mellon grant aims to revitalize interest in the field. “Without a concerted plan of action to revive the discipline of bibliography, rare books will increasingly become ‘curiosities,’ mute symbols from the past, rather than eloquent voices for it,” Heritage said. The Rare Book School has so far received about 600 requests from applicants, many of whom have backgrounds as doctoral students, postdoctoral fellows or are junior faculty. The application deadline for The Mellon Fellowship for Scholars in Critical Bibliography is Dec. 1.
D e m o c ra t s d o m i n a t e t h e greater Charlottesville area, according to Jefferson Area Community Survey polling conducted throughout October. The survey of registered voters conducted by the University Center for Survey Research found President Barack Obama and Democratic Senate candidate Tim Kaine held sizeable leads against former Gov. Mitt Romney and Senator George Allen, respectively. Forty-nine percent of registered voters who were polled in Albemarle County, the City of Charlottesville and Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa and Nelson counties said they planned to vote for Obama on Election Day, whereas 33 percent planned to vote for Romney. Eight percent of the respondents indicated they were undecided , and 10 percent declined to state a preference , according to a University statement released Thursday. The poll, which had a margin of error of 4.3 percentage points , also suggested strong regional support for Tim Kaine, a former governor of Virginia who is seeking his first election to the Senate. Fifty-one percent of respondents said they favored Kaine, whereas 32 percent favored Allen. Nine percent of respondents were still undecided in their Senate choice, and almost everyone else declined to respond. Obama’s current lead mirrors Charlottesville voting patterns from 2008, said Thomas Guterbock, director of the University Center for Survey Research. In the last presidential election, Obama received more than 78 percent of the vote in Charlottesville and more than 58 percent in Albemarle, whereas
Republican presidential nominee John McCain carried three of the four outlying counties. “Charlottesville has a unique, liberal culture and Democratic voting is typical of university towns across the country,” Guterbock said . “In addition, Charlottesville City has a sizable African-American population, and Obama captures over 90 percent of their votes. But University Politics lecturer Peter Furia cautioned against uncritical acceptance of the numbers. “[W]e should first of all note that this is a poll of ‘registered voters’ rather than a poll of ‘likely voters,’” Furia said in an email. “If the goal is to predict what’s going to happen on Election Day, ‘registered voter’ polls such as ours tend to overestimate the performance of Democrats a bit.” The center conducts the Jefferson Area Community Survey twice yearly, and found significant differences between the Charlottesville/Albemarle area and the four outlying counties, which are overwhelmingly Republican. Obama led Romney 69 percent to 13 percent in Charlottesville, compared to Romney’s 49 percent lead in outlying counties Fluvanna, Greene, Nelson and Louisa, according to a University statement . Obama led Albemarle county 56 percent to 27 percent. The reason for this contrast is not entirely clear, but Guterbock said the difference could be because of the typically rural nature of the outlying counties. “Political scientists have all sorts of different theories for why these urban/suburban/ rural differences occur, but our study is really just focusing on how they apply to our local area rather than trying to test those theories,” Furia said.
Graves | U.Va. to memorialize tombs Continued from page A1 Services completed its first stage of archeological survey last spring but found nothing of notable significance. Archeologists found the graves during the project’s second stage while in the process of clearing topsoil from the entire construction area. Nine of the 30 graves are believed to be children. “We remove enough soil to come down onto the tops of the grave shafts and we look for soil color differences and soil texture differences,” said Benjamin Ford, principal of Rivanna Archeological Services.

During its construction, the University buried its servants just outside of the north side cemetery wall, Ford said. The expansion site is located roughly 100 feet north of the original cemetery, in the same vicinity University workers were likely buried. “We know that African-Americans were part of the University community from its very founding,” said Gertrude Fraser, vice provost for faculty recruitment and retention. “As enslaved laborers they built the Academical Village and were likely among the first residence of what became the University of
Virginia.” The University in the past would likely have brushed the finding aside, Fraser said, but now it is taking this opportunity to commemorate African-Americans’ contributions to the University. “Now we have been given another opportunity, to dialogue and fully engage our institutional history — to remember, to commemorate and to repair,” she said. The University plans to memorialize these grave shafts as a way to recognize the unrewarded work slaves contributed to the University. “We still plan to go ahead with

the cemetery expansion, [but are] looking at other options that were identified in the master plan for the cemetery — most likely at the south side of the cemetery — but this will be untouched except for being appropriately memorialized,” Chief Facilities Officer Donald Sundgren said. Archaeologists anticipate completing the survey after two more days of work, during which time workers will refine the construction area by verifying there are no more graves in the work area. The University does not plan to excavate the graves, Ford said.

Unbeaten Virginia tops South Carolina Swim, dive teams use strong contributions from all classes to improve to 3-0 with commanding win against Gamecocks By Matthew Morris Cavalier Daily Staff Writer
Saturday morning, before the swimming portion of the Virginia swim and dive team’s dual meet against South Carolina, Olympic gold-medalist and former Cavalier Matt McLean swam a 100-yard freestyle time trial. The crowd in the stands and the swimmers by the pool cheered, urging the current
volunteer assistant coach on. Soon after the former Virginia star clocked in, this season’s Cavaliers showed they too deserve an enthusiastic reception. Virginia swept the Gamecocks — the women winning by a score of 161-124; the men by a 160-126 margin — as both squads improved to 3-0. In the win, 16 Cavaliers combined to place first in 20 of the meet’s 32 events. The team’s

dominance extended throughout the roster, from the veterans — seniors Tom Barrett, Lauren Perdue and Brady Fox won two races apiece — to newcomers like freshmen Courtney Bartholomew and Yannick Kaeser. Virginia’s across-theboard success to this point in the season is not lost on the more experienced Cavaliers. “We lost a lot of big, big names with our fourth years last year, with David Karasek [and] Peter Geissinger leaving the team,” Barrett said. “But fortunately we had first years who were able to come in and step up to the challenge, and they’ve been great. They’ve been pushing us in training.” Junior Rachel Naurath, who was named ACC Swimmer of the Week for her five individual wins and one relay victory in Virginia’s season-opening sweeps of Navy and Pittsburgh, sees the value in competitive practices against eager young stars. “We are probably one of the hardest training teams in the NCAA, so we really go at it in practice ... Racing our teammates in practice is really what makes us the team that we are,” Naurath said. The Virginia women and men finished the diving events of the meet versus South Carolina — which were completed on Friday night and Saturday morning — trailing by scores of 12-20 and 9-26, respectively.
team, individual event winners included the senior Perdue; juniors Naurath and Emily Lloyd; sophomores Williamson, Shaun Casey and Kelly Offutt; and freshmen Bartholomew and Becca Corbett. The men’s individual event winners included seniors Barrett and Fox; juniors Jan Daniec, Parker Camp and Taylor Grey; sophomore David Ingraham; and freshman Kaeser. In the losing effort, South Carolina nearly matched Virginia in the meet’s relay events. Virginia relay teams dominated early, securing one-two finishes in both 200 medley relays. The Gamecocks countered in the meet’s last set of events, posting a one-two-three finish in the women’s 400 freestyle relay and a one-two result in the same event on the men’s side. As South Carolina junior Gerard Rodriguez propelled himself toward the finish of the men’s 400 freestyle relay, the Virginia swimmers in his rearview mirror, his teammates cheered raucously. Virginia’s sunny feelings, however, were not clouded by South Carolina’s departing wins. “It’s just such a positive vibe this year, and I think that’s one of the reasons why we’ve been so successful,” Barrett said. Virginia’s next meet will be Nov. 16 against Penn State and Indiana in Bloomington, Ind.
South Carolina divers finished one-two in both three-meter diving events, and Gamecock senior Rylan Ridenour took first place in the men’s onemeter and three-meter events. When the meet shifted to swimming, however, Virginia had a remarkable turnaround. The Cavaliers secured first and second place in each of the first five races, including the top four finishes in both 1,000 freestyle events. Perdue and sophomore Ellen Williamson helped set the tone early. The two swam the second half of Virginia’s winning 200 medley relay team and finished one-two in the 200 freestyle. Williamson’s strong performance was just one example of the Cavaliers’ yearblind success — a team-wide effort nurtured by the support of Virginia’s more experienced swimmers. “I mean absolutely there’s a ton of things we try to say [to the younger swimmers], like never be scared to race people in practice, never be scared to beat upperclassmen and just really preaching confidence,” Naurath said. “I think it’s tough coming from a situation where you’re big fish in a small pond at home and then coming into U.Va., where you’re not anymore. You’re a small fish in a massive pond.” Against the Gamecocks, Cavaliers of all years contributed to the victory. For the women’s

to just two shots and failed to score in the half. Maryland did not take long to put the game out of reach in the second half.

a measuring stick for the Cavaliers’ (8-18, 2-13 ACC) positive progress this year. In their first meetings with the Yellow Jackets and Tigers, Virginia was swept by both opponents amid an eight-match losing streak. Since starting 0-9 in conference play,
Virginia picked up its first ACC win against Wake Forest Oct. 20 and stayed competitive against nationally-ranked Florida State and Miami. A better result this weekend showed that Virginia is becoming more than just the conference doormat under the direction of first-year coach Dennis Hohenshelt. The Cavaliers overcame a 2-1 deficit against the Yellow Jackets (16-10, 7-8 ACC) to rally back for their second conference win this season. Georgia Tech, who entered as losers of three of their last four matches, took an early lead by winning the first set 28-26. Virginia answered by taking the second set, 25-21, but the Yellow Jackets moved one set away from victory with a 25-22 third set win. Unfazed, Virginia held Georgia Tech to a match-low .107 hitting percentage en route to a 25-21 fourth set victory and captured the deciding fifth set 15-11 by scoring seven of the final 10 points. The victory was arguably the Cavaliers’ best performance of the year. The team recorded a season-high .387 hitting percentage, tallied 70 kills and committed just 13 attacking errors. Five players hit above a .250 percentage, including freshman outside
Despite the loss, a number of players had career-best performances against Clemson. Junior libero Emily Rottman recorded a career-high 40 digs, fourth most in a single match in Virginia history. Sophomore middle Morgan Blair posted a career-high eight kills and a team-high .538 hitting percentage. In addition, freshman outside hitter Natalie Bausback had 12 kills, moving her into the top 10 on the all-time freshman list at Virginia with 261 on the season. The upset win Friday and disappointing loss Saturday served both to reinforce the improvements the team has made this season and remind the players how far they still have to go. Facing two opponents who entered at or above .500 in ACC play, however, the weekend split makes clear the team’s trajectory going forward. “Up,” Bausback said. “I think from here, we’re motivated to win, and we can win. If we keep practicing hard and playing like we did [Friday night], I know we can win from here on out.” Virginia takes the court again next weekend in their home finales when they host Maryland Friday and Boston College Saturday.
hitter Kayla Sears, who led the team with 20 kills. Senior captain middle Jessica O’Shoney had one of her best matches of the year, finishing with 19 kills and only two hitting errors. “Any time we play [well], regardless of whether we win or lose, it’s a strong match and it means a lot to us,” O’Shoney said, “Obviously we’ve had a rough season, a lot of ups and downs, but it’s great to get a win.” Virginia carried that momentum into the opening of its match Saturday against Clemson (18-8, 9-6 ACC), taking a hard-fought first set 29-27. The Tigers edged the Cavaliers in the second set, 22-25, and dominated Virginia in the third set 17-25. A communication error on the final point in the fourth set cost the Cavaliers the round, 22-25, and the match, 3-1. “I thought we played hard,” Hohenshelt said, “We weren’t anywhere near as sharp as we were last night, though. We just didn’t execute in critical times. We played hard enough to keep ourselves in the match, but there’s a finite point in the match where you have to get chances and convert those chances one hundred percent of the time, and we just weren’t great at that tonight.”

Running off track
The University of Richmond owes an explanation for why it cut its men’s varsity soccer and track and ﬁeld teams The University of Richmond’s decision to drop its Division I men’s soccer team and its men’s track and field, and to replace them by adding a varsity program in men’s lacrosse came under heightened questioning after an article on the matter ran in The Washington Post Thursday. According to the Post, the choice to add one sport and discontinue two was not coincidence or based on a binding economic dilemma. Instead, the shrouded rationale remains unexplained and looks more than anything to be the result of the political momentum of donors. The University of Richmond should have done a better job articulating why it made such a significant athletic decision. In April, the University of Richmond’s governing Board of Trustees met with an 11-person task force — of which only one member, the athletics director, had a connection to sports — that had been commissioned a year prior to assess the finances of the school’s athletics. Specifically, the task force outlined the costs for beginning varsity teams in lacrosse, a prospect that had been gaining popularity at the University of Richmond. This task force found the amount of money required to start men’s lacrosse would be about $2 million. This summer, the school was well on its way to this goal, having already fundraised $3 million from donors interested in seeing the Spiders take the field in men’s lacrosse. It came as a surprise, then, when the University of Richmond did decide to add lacrosse in September — and simultaneously acted to end the school’s varsity programs in men’s soccer and men’s track and field. Besides just wanting to add lacrosse — which is a sport of growing popularity, especially on the East Coast, where an overwhelming number of the NCAA’s
only 61 Division I varsity teams reside — no valid explanation has been given for the elimination of the two programs. Jim Miller, the University of Richmond athletics director who was on the original task force, said axing the two sports would bring no financial benefit. University of Richmond President Ed Ayers, meanwhile, said the school would save $100,000 annually without men’s soccer and men’s track and field, according to The Washington Post. One possible explanation surrounds the implementation of Title IX, the stipulation in U.S. law that requires colleges to provide equal opportunities in athletic-related endeavors. The University of Richmond previously had a varsity women’s lacrosse team, but not one for men. Under this variance, however, the school had struck the correct proportions of funding and scholarships required by Title IX. So by adding a men’s lacrosse team, the school would have had to provide a proportional amount of funding and scholarships for its women athletics; according to The Washington Post, it might have needed to create a new women’s sport altogether. Cutting two men’s programs could have had the counterbalancing effect of allowing the University of Richmond to add men’s lacrosse without adding more women’s sports teams. Regardless, the decision remains unclear — students, coaches and fans have protested, demanding a justification. This is about more than just money, as such an immediate removal of two prominent sports without notice affects the livelihood of those students and coaches directly involved in such programs. The University of Richmond may be correct to be overhauling what is the sometimes bloated field of intercollegiate athletics. But it has done so in a style that is junior varsity.
Featured online reader comment “Faulty economics, Cav Daily. Expanding Pell Grants, as Douglass proposes, will not curb rising tuition. Instead, it will likely add to the problem, by artiﬁcially increasing demand. Perhaps the notion that ‘college is for everyone,’ as President Obama has espoused, should be reevaluated.”

We fought side-by-side with faculty, staff and alumni for Teresa Sullivan’s reinstatement in June, and we won. To date, we are the only public institution in the country to have accomplished such a dramatic reinstatement of an ousted leader. And we’re not done yet. If we want to help this institution live up to the potential that such an outpouring of pride and affection demonstrates, then we need to finish what we started. On the afternoon of November 8, during the next scheduled meeting of the Board, students will join with faculty, staff and alumni to protest the Board’s breaches of integrity. I encourage all students who care about the future of this University to come out and advocate for transparency, accountability and reform. The crisis of governance at the University affects all of us, and the crisis is not over.

in the realm of education and boasted a balanced budget all four years under Gov. Romney. There is a lot of doubt on the Left about Romney’s ability to balance the budget, but he has done it before. He is running a platform of a balanced budget and as a champion of small business. This is the man we need in charge when we hit the work force, someone who wants us to compete and succeed on our own merit, and who will take away those regulations and infringements the Obama administration has imposed on people and businesses. When I read the Managing Board’s editorial, I was hardly surprised. Theirs is the shortsighted, self-serving stance taken by many college students. But the real candidate that is going to serve our interests, and those of the country as a whole, is Mitt Romney. If you think earning success and championing individual responsibility is the right path, then Romney is the real Mr. Right. Sam Novack’s column appears Tuesdays in The Cavalier Daily.

But some newspapers’ editorials are closer to warmedover campaign pitches than “calm reasoned argument.” Yet Woolley’s right that the “focus on doing whatever it takes to sway votes has gotten us the ugly politics we now endure.” That has also become the focus of too much political reporting. It is cliché to say that the media is too caught up in the horse race and too inattentive to what the winning horse will have to do after the race is won. It’s cliché, but it’s true. If endorsements can add any measure of thoughtful discussion to a presidential campaign, any at all, we should be happy to live with their shortcomings.

It’s probably safe to say singer-songwriter Joshua Radin never thought a medical problem would give rise to a highly-acclaimed fourth album. In fact, the Ohio native, who didn’t learn to play guitar until his late 20s, probably never foresaw an album at all. But after many twists and turns — not to mention the help of Scrubs’ Zach Braff — he’s here to stay, set to play Monday evening alongside A Fine Frenzy at Charlottesville’s Paramount Theater. Last week, Radin caught up with Arts & Entertainment to talk about his tour, his most recent album and scary concepts like the future. Arts & Entertainment: What has touring with A Fine Frenzy’s Alison Sudol and her team been like? Joshua Radin: So fun! They’re a great bunch of people, and I really enjoy getting to listen to her show. A&E: What are you most looking forward to about playing in Charlottesville? JR: Last time I played at the Jefferson Theater, and it sold out. It was a brilliant audience. Charlottesville is a great place — great restaurants, great bars and the people are lovely. I’ve never played the Paramount Theater, so I’m really excited for that. Hopefully it will sound just as good! I’m going to have to work up some kind of Dave Matthews cover to do. A&E: What has been your most memorable moment of the tour so far? JR: Probably when I got to go to Spain and Italy this past summer for the first time to play. I’ve been waiting to go not just as a tourist. I love to travel, but I’m a shy person, and it’s so easy to meet people when you play a show. The locals take you around and show you all the cool places. You really get to know a place. Barcelona, especially, was one those of those cities where
after going, you really feel like you can live there. A&E: Your fourth album dropped July 31 of this year. What served as your inspiration for Underwater? JR: I had a punctured eardrum my whole life, and the doctor always told me, “Don’t go underwater. It will damage your hearing, and it will be very painful.” Last year, though, I found out it had healed on its own and I finally got the go-ahead to go under if I wanted to. It was very inspiring because of the silence that I heard. I never really understood what it meant until that point. Even though it probably meant something different for me than it did for Paul Simon, my mind has never been more free. Even when you’re laying in bed at night, you can still hear your heart beat. I pretty much wrote half of the [title] song while I was underwater. A&E: What made you decide to return to your more traditional, soft-spoken sound after 2010’s The Rock and the Tide? JR: With The Rock and the Tide, I wanted to try something new. I experimented with the [more rock] sound and got it out of my system. But I wouldn’t say I returned to any sound. [My music] is more like what I am feeling in the moment. For Underwater, I [just happened to be] feeling more acoustic and introspective when I was writing the songs. A&E: So what’s next on your agenda after the tour? JR: I’m sure I’ll be writing a bunch of

Although there is an endless stream of indie musicians who invade the Charlottesville area, rarely do you ﬁnd one who is a triple threat. Marco Benevento is a one of a kind pianist, sound-sculptor and songwriter who has collaborated with artists all over the country. When he isn’t writing amazingly complex piano tunes, he is synthesizing the sounds of such performers as Mike Gordon (Phish), Andrew Barr (The Barr Brothers), and Dave Dreiwitz (Ween).

This Week in Arts History
John Lennon and Yoko Ono Nov. 9, 1966 was the beginning of the end for the sound of a generation. Known for numerous number one hits and revolutionary pop sounds, The Beatles is undoubtedly one of the most popular bands of all time. With fans all over the world, the group’s successful ride seemed endless. Millions of screaming girls longed to be with any one of The Beatles and worshipped their every move. On Nov. 9 , John Lennon attended an art exhibition at the Indica Gallery in London . There, he met Yoko Ono, a Japanese artist and peace activist. Soon, their love story became one of legend. The Beatles even released the single “The Ballad of John and Yoko,” their last charttopping hit in the United Kingdom. Yoko is often blamed for the Beatles’ break up, but ultimately all good things must come to an end. And although the band called it quits, their impact on music history has hardly been forgotten. —compiled by Emily Benedict

DJANGEO BY STEPHEN ROWE
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your friends and family wonder about the status of your relationships and want to be sure that you are well taken care of. This is the real reason they have gotten so nosy lately!
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). An aura of mystery is a better image enhancement than a designer outfit. Of course, you were born knowing this. You never had to learn to be intriguing; it’s something that comes naturally to you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There’s a Monday malaise happening around you, but you could change all of that. Your quick physical and social reflexes add brightness to your environment. Whatever your age, people will think you are younger.
THE ADVENTURES OF THE AMAZING <THE> A-MAN BY EMILIO ESTEBAN
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your mood will be rather serious, as there’s something you must accomplish by the day’s end. You’ll be repelled by emotional neediness and immaturity.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). With your guiding planet going retrograde tomorrow, you feel an urgency to get an entire list of items accomplished. With unseen forces on your side, you’ll make quick work of the first five items.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll finally get the chance to air a concern to a receptive audience. Colleagues will be open to your opinions, especially if you start with those opinions they are most likely to agree with.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). It will take someone with depth of character to fully understand you now. Luckily, such a person will be willing to hear your plight and will know just what to say or do to make life better.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). A pay raise or new monetary arrangement is in the works. Right now, it may not be a top priority for all involved. But when you hint that this is important to you, someone with power will reprioritize.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You know exactly what you need, and you can afford to be picky about it. If you’re very particular, you’ll find only a small part of the resources you seek. But that small part will make a big difference.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It’s easy for you to open up to others now -- maybe too easy. You don’t yet realize who you can trust, so be more guarded. It’s better to say less and to be coy rather than frank.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You don’t have time for speculative ventures now. You’ll do business with someone who has proved himself time and again. You know the specific result you want to achieve and will settle for no less.
CHICKEN STRIP BY SAM NOVACK AND SORCHA HARTMAN
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 5). In light of your personal new year, you’ll close an old cycle, handle business neatly and put the past in a fitting emotional compartment. You’ll get three big breaks over the year: in November, in March and in July. Diligence and practice will lead to mastery. One special love is featured in December. Aquarius and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 31, 24, 38, 1 and 40.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Venus in your sign favorably angles Jupiter, bringing good luck to your romantic sector. Just be careful that your happiness does not come at the expense of another.
