THIS WEEK Just editing this week’s feature on the UVA basketball teams got my heart racing a little bit. Yes, football is a grander spectacle. And sure, soccer is more fluid, more graceful. But if you want an edge-of-your-seat, nail-biting adrenaline rush, nothing can top college basketball. Of course, in this town, we already know that. Both UVA basketball teams start their seasons next week. The women hope to field a competitive team after their 2020 season ended pre­maturely. The men, meanwhile, have question marks in key positions—but you’d be a fool to count out any team coached by Tony Bennett. Read up on both teams’ prospects in our season preview on page 14. Personally, I can’t wait to be back in the stands for the first time in two years. Sitting cheek by jowl with other fans in JPJ will feel like yet another benchmark in the long, slow march toward the way things used to be. The bright lights, the silly songs, the squeak of sneakers on hardwood, the garish orange clothing, the overpriced stadium concessions—I love it all. Let the games begin.—Ben Hitchcock

Governor’s race torch stunt fans flames locally

IN BRIEF

Bounty hunter plot goes wrong A Culpeper woman was arrested on federal criminal charges last Wednesday for attempting to hire a hitman over the internet. The 25-year-old placed an “order” on the dark web requesting muder-for-hire services, including photos of and personal information about the intended target. She deposited $3,200 in Bitcoin to get the job done, and offered information about the best time and place to kill the victim. U.S. Attorney Christopher R. Kavanaugh said the incident should serve as a reminder “to remain vigilant in the policing of those dark corners of the web where cybercrime thrives.” The accused party faces up to 20 years in prison.

spoke out against the “nasty prank,” and asked council to demand The Lincoln Project donate money to equity groups helping Unite the Right victims. “We’re tired of the pain of our community being used as a prop [and] our community being used for everything but the uplift of our community,” he said. “There’s still a lot of pain in this town, and it needs to be addressed.” Councilors Lloyd Snook and Heather Hill agreed the city should issue a response denouncing the stunt. “People who are not from Charlottesville don’t realize the extent to which I think Charlottesville is still struggling with PTSD from that experience four years ago,” said Snook. “Even the TV ads that we’re seeing are triggering for a lot of people in Charlottesville.” Mayor Nikuyah Walker did not comment on The Lincoln Project, but acknowledged the “people in this community who have had pain and suffering and trauma long before 2017.” “That is the main problem that we need to focus on in this community,” added Walker. At press time, we were sitting around biting our nails, awaiting the results of the governor’s race. Check back for in-depth coverage of the election online and in next week’s paper.

commission’s excitement about its new man on the job, saying that committee members “were impressed by his knowledge, demeanor, and professional reputation, and believe that he will be an excellent leader of the GWRC staff.” Boyles

says he looks forward to “addressing the needs of the region” alongside the GWRC staff and partner agencies. This latest post adds to Boyles’ lengthy list of experiences working in city government. We’ll see if he lasts longer than eight months.

ive young people wearing identical white shirts, glasses, and baseball caps, holding tiki torches, standing in a straight line in front of Glenn Youngkin’s tour bus, praising the Republican gubernatorial candidate: It all seemed a little too neat. And indeed, it was—shortly after images of the demonstration began circulating on social media, it came to light that the torch-wielders weren’t neo-Nazi Youngkin fans who attended the rally to support the candidate. Instead, they were deployed by The Lincoln Project, a political action committee comprised of former Republicans aimed at defeating Trump and his allies. (Posing as a neo-Nazi—do you think that was listed in the internship description?) A statement from the project said the ham-fisted stunt was an attempt to “remind Virginians of what happened in Charlottesville four years ago, the Republican Party’s embrace of those values, and Glenn Youngkin’s failure to condemn it.” The Youngkin campaign accused Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe of organizing the event, prompting McAuliffe’s campaign manager to denounce the demonstration and call for an “immediate apology” from whomever was behind it.

The new buyers are a mysterious entity called Excellent Horse LLC, reports Charlottesville Tomorrow. The property was purchased for $1,287,500, just below the initial asking price of $1.35 million. In the past, some community members have suggested turning the space into a museum of local history, but for now its future remains to be seen.

Roy recently voted against creating a commission to investigate the January 6 insurrection, and was fined for refusing to wear a mask in the Capitol (alongside Marjorie Taylor Greene). Is it unfair to judge Jefferson by the company he keeps?

at college. That was before the violence of Unite the Right. “Interpersonally, I stopped being an outgoing, sociable person. I became very suspicious of people, withdrawn,” he said. “It was such a lonely time.” Willis endured three hours of crossexamination on Monday from Spencer and Cantwell. Cantwell focused on Willis’ claim that it may have been Cantwell himself who pepper sprayed him that evening. “Before today, did you tell anyone that you choked on Christopher Cantwell’s pepper spray? They didn’t ask you about that,” Cantwell said in a sarcastic tone. “In June 2020, if somebody said, do you know who Christopher Cantwell is, you’d have said no?” “I don’t know when I became aware of you,” Willis said. “When were you approached about this lawsuit?” Cantwell countered. “I became a plaintiff in October 2017. I hardly remember the time period,” said Willis. “I can’t help but notice that you say, ‘I can’t remember’ a lot. Is everything okay?” Cantwell asked with faux concern. “No, everything is not okay,” said Willis.

Bmm bmmm… I could hear my heart beating,” Romero said. “Like war scenes where they were just hit, and it’s just flashing.” She suffered a fractured skull, damage to her teeth, and severe abrasions on her face and body that have left scars. Romero had to sit through cross examination from Spencer and Cantwell, who is also representing himself in the case. “So you wanted to seek out the protesters, is what I understand,” Spencer asked. “You wanted to see a spectacle of some kind or get your word in?” “In no way did I want to meet protesters,” Romero responded calmly, noting she is a history buff and believed the events unfolding would be historic. “I wanted to see it with my own eyes.” “When the car incident occurred, did you believe I was responsible or involved?” Spencer asked. “I can’t say,” said Romero.

hear it in my nightmares,” said Natalie Romero, recalling her experience standing in front of the Thomas Jefferson statue on August 11, 2017, staring down a torch-wielding mob of white nationalists. “I literally hear the same cadence to the ‘You will not replace us.’ That one was just so terrifying.” Romero is one of the nine plaintiffs in Sines v. Kessler, a lawsuit aimed at disrupting and bankrupting the hate groups responsible for the August 2017 Unite the Right rally. The trial began Monday, October 25. Last week, Romero and the other plaintiffs began laying out their case, alleging that the defendants conspired to commit racially motivated violence on the weekend in question. The group of defendants includes Jason Kessler, Richard Spencer, Chris Cantwell, and several white nationalist organizations. Jury selection took three days, as Judge Norman Moon had difficulty finding a jury without preconceived notions and biases about the Unite the Right rally. One prospective juror identified the two parties in the case as “Black Lives Matter and antifa.” She also had a problem with the rights of “radical communists and atheists” to protest. Moon dismissed her. Another said her son’s after-school teacher was “Mr. Dre,” whom the judge concluded was DeAndre Harris. Harris was severely beaten in the Market Street Garage on August 12, 2017. She began to cry on the stand, and Moon said he was striking her for cause as well. One potential male juror said, “I am biased against the defendants. I believe they’re evil and their organizations are evil. I would find that difficult to set aside.” With a jury finally seated, each side gave their opening arguments on Thursday. The defendants’ attorneys—and two defendants who are representing themselves—contended that the case was an issue of free speech, and no matter how hate-filled their speech is, it’s protected. Before the lawyers started talking, Moon instructed the jury on conspiracy, which he said is an unlawful partnership among those who have an unlawful objective—even if they don’t know each other. “By its very nature, conspiracy is clandestine and covert,” he said. Plaintiffs may use circumstantial evidence, he added. It was an emotional day for the plaintiffs, who were in the federal courtroom for the first time since the trial began Monday. Plaintiffs’ attorney Karen Dunn played videos from the tiki-torch march through UVA grounds on August 11, when the ralliers

chanted “Jews will not replace us.” She also showed footage of James Fields accelerating his Dodge Challenger into a crowd of counter­ protesters. Initially the sound wasn’t working, and she called for a pause. “We think it’s important that the jury be able to hear as well as see,” she said. She showed a message alt-right leader Spencer wrote: “We have entered a world of political violence.” Organizer Kessler wrote to Spencer, “We’re raising an army my liege, for freedom of speech and the cracking of heads if necessary.” In online chat rooms, defendants discussed using shields, pepper spray, and flagpoles as weapons with “plausible deniability,” she said. They called pepper spray “gas.” Dunn warned the jury that “gas the kikes” was something it would hear a lot in this case. On August 11, plaintiffs Romero and Devin Willis joined the 30 or so students at the Thomas Jefferson statue. “Devin thought he was literally going to die,” said plaintiffs’ attorney Roberta Kaplan. The next day, Romero and Willis headed to Emancipation Park (now Market Street Park), and were sprayed and assaulted once again, said Kaplan. Romero was thrown on the hood of a car. “Tragically, that was not the only contact Natalie had with a car that day,” Kaplan said. Romero and three others were hit by James Alex Fields’ car in the attack that killed Heather Heyer. Plaintiff Marcus Martin’s shoe came off and was lodged in the grill of the Challenger. “These are the shoes,” said Kaplan, holding them up. “Shoes are stronger than human body parts.” Attorney James Kolenich, who represents Kessler, Nathan Damigo, and Identity Evropa, conceded that “No one likes fascists or Nazis. In many cases the defendants aren’t likable people.” Spencer, who was seen coming into court with a stuffed animal he called his “emotional support animal,” is representing himself. He stressed that he was an invited guest to the Unite the Right rally and had no hand in the planning. Some of the evidence, he conceded, such as a racist rant he made after the rally, would be embarrassing. “I said things that were shameful and that I might never live down.” On Friday, Romero and Willis began their testimonies. Romero, a first-generation college student, recounted the August 12 rally. “I got spit on by people who hate me and think I should not be alive and that I threaten their existence,” she said, her voice rising and cracking with emotion. “I’m just trying to go to school, man. I’m just trying to get out of poverty.” Romero’s group of counterprotesters was rounding the corner from Water Street to

I

n August, Charlottesville’s Police Civilian Review Board, a body designed to investigate accusations of police misconduct, approved a new ordinance that expanded its powers. City Council, which began discussing the proposed ordinance last week, will have to vote in favor of it for the CRB to begin its work. In accordance with a new state law that took effect in July, the ordinance would allow the board to independently receive and investigate complaints, hold hearings, subpoena documents and witnesses, and issue disciplinary recommendations in cases that involve “serious breaches” of department and professional standards. During last week’s lengthy work session, City Council’s discussion of the ordinance included CRB members and its Executive Director Hansel Aguilar, who was appointed in September. The board has yet to determine exactly who is allowed to file a complaint, and what kind of cases would require it to conduct an independent investigation. To limit the criteria for CRB investigations, board vicechair William Mendez suggested Aguilar could closely oversee CPD’s internal affairs division, and make recommendations throughout its investigations to ensure they are complete and unbiased. Councilor Lloyd Snook pointed out that potential complaints like use of excessive force are typically cases of criminal conduct or civil action, which the board is not allowed to investigate. “Where do these exclusions leave the PCRB with something meaningful to do?” he asked.

Aguilar suggested the board take notes from Washington, D.C., where he formerly served as a police misconduct investigator. If the city’s CRB received a complaint about a potentially criminal act, the board conducted a preliminary investigation and sent it to the U.S. attorney’s office. If the office decided not to prosecute the police officer, the board then continued to investigate the complaint as a breach of department standards. Councilor Michael Payne asked if complaints involving the University Police Department could also be submitted to the CRB. “It was absolutely the intent of the legislature to consider the campus police in this process,” replied Delegate Sally Hudson, who said she could help clarify that part of the law during the upcoming General Assembly session. Payne also recommended the board include a code of ethics in the ordinance, detailing when council could remove members for misconduct. During public comment, several community members called for the removal of board chair Bellamy Brown, who has been accused of collaborating with the Police Benevolent Association to get former CPD chief RaShall Brackney fired. Mayor Nikuyah Walker said she brought up Brown’s behavior to council multiple times, but was told it was a private matter. “If there is only the will of one person to take his behavior [and] determine if he’s a good fit for the board, then there’s not much that can be done,” she said. During the work session, councilors also commented on the CRB’s proposed interim hearing procedures, which would allow the board to proceed with one review request while it waits for the full ordinance to be passed. The placeholder hearing procedures give board members full access to the police department’s internal affairs files, but leave complainants with just a police department-authored summary of the files. Snook voiced multiple concerns about that mechanism, suggesting that it could make it more difficult for complainants to argue their cases. Following the work session, Council voted 4-1 during its Monday night meeting to approve the interim hearing procedures, with Mayor Walker dissenting. In the coming weeks, several CRB members and councilors will hold another work session to further discuss and amend the ordinance. Council hopes to pass the final ordinance before the end of the year.

Thanks to a $4.25 million grant from the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation, the Piedmont Housing Alliance was able to renovate dozens of rooms (shown before and after, above) at the former Red Carpet Inn, which is now home to 68 people.

gregate shelters at local churches, starting November 6. Meanwhile, TJACH will pay for hotel rooms for high-risk individuals, if they are unable to stay at the shelter at the former Red Carpet Inn. “To date, there have been no [COVID] outbreaks in our shelter system...which is very much tied to our ability to have private rooms for people,” adds Haro. The housing advocates have even bigger plans for the former motel in the future: tackling Charlottesville’s affordable housing crisis. Virginia Supportive Housing recently received low-income tax credit awards to build 80 permanent housing units at the site, which will be available to disabled individuals who chronically struggle with homelessness. The project is expected to be completed in 2024. The Piedmont Housing Alliance will also build 60 affordable housing units—to be rented for no more than 30 percent of the gross income of future residents—on the property. In addition to financial support from the community, PACEM and TJACH need additional volunteers to help with various tasks at the new shelter, like landscaping and laundry. And as Charlottesville’s Future Land Use Map and Comprehensive Plan wait for approval from City Council, Haro and Whitehead hope the community will not only advocate for affordable housing development, but also assist in bringing it to fruition. “It’s how people get out of shelter,” says Haro. “They need a safe and affordable place to move into, and that’s really hard to come by today.” “We need more than the 80 units of permanent supportive housing and 60 affordable ones—we need 10 times that probably for our community,” he adds.

fter months of paying for hotel rooms for people experiencing homelessness during the COVID-19 pandemic, PACEM and the Thomas Jefferson Area Coalition for the Homeless were in desperate search of a long-term housing solution. When the Red Carpet Inn off Route 29 in Albemarle County was put up for sale last summer, the nonprofits believed they could transform the 40-yearold rundown motel into the permanent emergency shelter they needed. Thanks to a $4.25 million grant from the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation, the Piedmont Housing Alliance purchased the property in March, and got to work renovating the rooms, which were in varying stages of disrepair. In May, the lowbarrier shelter finally opened its doors to all people experiencing homelessness, prioritizing those who are at high risk of becoming severely ill and dying if they contract coronavirus. Since then, it has provided shelter to around 100 people. Now, the shelter is at capacity, according to PACEM and TJACH, who manage the property together. Sixty-eight people—including a few couples—are currently living in 63 of the former motel’s renovated rooms. Though there are 10 additional renovated rooms, they are not being used right now, due to maintenance issues. The nonprofits plan to upgrade the remaining 36 unrenovated rooms, so the shelter will have over 100 rooms available for guests. But first, they need to raise about $300,000 for the project. “There was extensive mold growth in particular in all of the rooms, so we had to strip the wallpaper and professionally clean the

walls to make sure the growth was stopped,” says TJACH Executive Director Anthony Haro of the renovations. “And we did basically the same thing for the carpets—they were all removed and replaced.” The renovation team also had to replace many of the motel’s HVAC units, and fix some electrical and plumbing issues. Over the past six months, “there have needed to be regular fixes,” adds PACEM Executive Director Jayson Whitehead. “I don’t think we foresaw just how big the property management piece was going to be.” Despite these challenges, guests have been “really enjoying” the shelter, says Whitehead. In addition to having their own room, all guests receive intensive case management services, along with food, clothing, and other necessities. They are also connected to a variety of community resources, including employment assistance, mental health services, substance abuse treatment, and medical care. “It’s pretty neat to always see the sense of community that’s developed over here,” says Whitehead. “Everybody has neighbors, and they’ve formed friendships and bonds. That’s the case even with staff and guests.” “We have regular offerings from Project ID...and there’s a regular UVA health clinic on site weekly,” he adds. “There’s a lot of really directly addressing either health issues or housing barriers.” Since the Supreme Court ruled against the Biden administration’s federal eviction moratorium extension in August, concern over evictions has heightened across the country. However, TJACH has not seen a local increase in homelessness due to evictions recently, largely thanks to the Virginia Rent Relief Program, says Haro. Still, to ensure no one has to sleep on the streets during the cold winter months, PACEM will set up its annual temporary con-

uddy Boeheim goes to the line. Virginia leads Syracuse by two, 29 seconds on the clock. Boeheim makes the first free throw. He makes the second. 69-69. A few seconds later, down at the other end of the court, UVA’s trusted floor marshal Kihei Clark pokes his way into the paint, and whips a pass out to freshman Reece Beekman. Beekman hasn’t made a shot all day. He’s zero for five. But now, with time running out, he’s only got one option: He drains the three as the buzzer sounds. Beekman sprints down the court, his teammates chasing him and jumping for joy. The UVA men are headed to the quarterfinals of the 2021 ACC men’s basketball tournament. Or so they thought. As soon as the celebration ended, news broke that someone on UVA’s team tested positive for COVID. The Cavaliers were disqualified from the conference tournament and, a week before the NCAA tournament, were sent back to Charlottesville, where they weren’t allowed to leave their apartments or dorms, and were unable to practice. The disruption doubtless contributed to the upset that followed: The Hoos secured a 4 seed in the tournament, but fell 62-58 to 13-seed Ohio in the first round. It was an unceremonious end to the Cavaliers’ impressive season, going 18-7 overall and 13-4 in the ACC, winning another ACC regular season championship. In the offseason, the bad news piled up. The program lost three players to the transfer portal, freshman Jabri Abdur-Rahim and sophomores Casey Morsell and Justin McKoy. Trey Murphy III, Sam Hauser, and Jay Huff headed to the NBA, leaving Tony Bennett with a bare roster. But, not for long. In addition to four-star recruit Taine Murray of New Zealand, the Hoos landed two big transfers: Jayden Gardner and Armaan Franklin. Gardner, the 6-foot-6, 246-pound senior forward from East Carolina University, averaged 18.3 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 35.2 minutes per game in 2020-2021. He also shot 47.9 percent from the field, 50 percent from beyond the arc, and 73.7 percent from the line. He was named to the American Athletic Conference first team and the National Association of Basketball Coaches District 24 first team. On a team that doesn’t return a single double-digit scorer from last year, Gardner will be expected to carry a lot of the offensive load. Franklin, the 6-foot-4, 204-pound junior guard from Indiana University, averaged 11.4 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 2.1 assists per game in the 2020-2021 season. Further, he shot 42.9 percent from the field, 42.4 percent from beyond the arc, and 74.1 percent from the line. If Franklin doesn’t start to begin the season, expect him to come off the bench pretty quickly.

Head Coach Tony Bennett enters his 13th year with the men’s basketball program. Since 2013, his teams have won five ACC regular season titles, two ACC tournament titles, and a national championship.

First week action Men vs. Navy, Tuesday, November 9, 9pm vs. Radford, Friday, November 12, 7pm Women @ James Madison, Tuesday, November 9, 7pm vs. USC, Sunday, November 14, 1pm

The team still has three veterans from the 2018-2019 championship team, all returning for their fourth year and likely to make an impact. The diminutive Kihei Clark is the team’s elder statesman, entering his senior year as a regular starter. Last year Clark averaged 9.5 points, 2.0 rebounds, and 4.5 assists per game. He made the All-ACC third team in 2019 and was an honorable mention in 2020. The team’s other veterans haven’t played as much thus far in their careers. Kody Statt-

mann, the 6-foot-8, 200-pound guard started 10 out of 24 games his sophomore season but only played four games in the 2020-2021 season due to a non-COVID-19 related cardiac issue. In those four games, Stattmann shot 58.3 percent from the field and averaged 3.5 points and 1.8 rebounds per game. Francisco Caffaro, the 7-foot-1, 242pound redshirt junior (and an Olympian with Argentina this summer) is ready to take the reins at center. He’ll have big shoes to fill—literally—with the departure of Huff. Caffaro played less than seven minutes per game across just 17 appearances last year. Another notable returning player is Kadin Shedrick. Shedrick didn’t see much of the floor in 2020, but the 6-foot-11, 231-pound forward had an impressive showing in the Pepsi Blue-White Scrimmage in October. He also scored a career-high 12 points and pulled down a career-best eight rebounds versus St. Francis last December. Expect Shedrick to start. UVA’s disqualification from the ACC tournament and disappointing finish in the NCAA tournament left a bad taste in the

mouths of Wahoo faithful, but this year, the Cavaliers are ready to compete and win. They open the season ranked 25th in the AP poll. We all know what happens when UVA plays with something to prove.

T

he 2020-21 season didn’t go great for the UVA women’s basketball team. In fact, it barely went at all. The team was hit hard by injuries and COVID complications. After just a few games, Head Coach Tina Thompson was down to six eligible players, and the program decided to call off the season entirely after an 0-5 start. Heading in to 2021, there’s nowhere to go but up. Thompson, a WNBA hall of famer from her playing days, enters her fourth year in charge of the Cavaliers, without a winning season under her belt, and she’ll have a roster full of fresh faces to work with. Virginia landed five transfers this offseason: Eleah Parker, McKenna Dale, Camryn Taylor, Taylor Valladay, and London Clarkson. Parker is a graduate transfer from the University of Pennsylvania and two-time Ivy League defensive player of the year. The


THE ANNUAL 6-foot-4 forward averaged a .485 field goal percentage, 8.4 rebounds per game, and had a total of 233 blocks over three seasons at Penn. Dale is another graduate transfer from the Ivy League. In her 2019-2020 season at Brown (the Ivy League conference opted out of competing during 2020-2021 due to COVID), the 6-foot guard ranked third in conference for points per game (17.0), second in three-point percentage (.385), and first in free throw percentage (.851). UVA also added two transfers from Marquette, a team that went 19-7 last year before losing to No. 1-ranked UConn in the Big East tournament final. Taylor, a 6-foot-2 junior forward, averaged 12 points, 6.9 rebounds, and 1.7 assists per game during her 2020-2021 season at Marquette. She was named to the 2019-2020 Big East all-freshman team and was a 2020-2021 All-Big East honorable mention. Valladay is a junior guard who averaged 5.2 points and 1.8 assists per game for the Golden Eagles last year. Virginia’s last transfer is Clarkson, a 6-foot-2 junior forward from Florida State. During her 2019-2020 season at FSU, Clarkson averaged 1.2 points and 1.4 rebounds, and shot 43.8 percent from the floor in an average of 7.5 minutes per game. Clarkson transferred to UVA last winter and received eligibility waivers from the

I say that everyone’s one bad breakup away from owning a cat, whether you like them or not.”

iz Miele, author of the book Why Cats Are Assholes, describes herself as a “cat comedian.” That’s why her favorite Charlottesville place to visit was The Cat House, the Downtown Mall’s most reliable home decor source for a self-professed crazy cat lady. “I just feel like someday, someone will discover my body, because, you know, I won’t have anybody,” says Miele. “And my cat will have eaten my face, and then they’ll be like, we should just save it as it is and let people see she was a decent comedian, who lived with her own thoughts, and this is how it ended up. And it will be like a museum-slash-cautionary tale.” The Cat House has closed, but Miele returns to Charlottesville on November 6 as a headliner in the 10th annual United Nations of Comedy Tour. New on this tour are a few Miele-approved COVID-19 safety measures. “Some things shouldn’t be the same [as they were before],” Miele says. “I hate shaking hands with men. I just think they’re gross. Honestly, as somebody that works with mostly men, it’s been really nice not to have to shake their hand.” Prior to Charlottesville, Miele spent her current run of shows joking with crowds everywhere from Richmond, where the fashion choices of a polo-shirted front row guest invited a roasting, to Forth Worth, Texas, where she promised the audience there would be no sex with any of them that night, as she’d like to leave the state with her uterus intact. At the Paramount she’ll be laughing about the pandemic, sex, and breakups, but her signature cat comedy has recently taken a sad turn—Miele’s beloved companion Pasta, the subject of frequent jokes during her pre-COVID shows, passed away after a recent move. “I move in, three days later my parents drop her off, and two days later she died,” says Miele. “It was pretty bad. I was like, cool, way to change the mojo in my new apartment, Pasta.” Three months later, Miele is ready to love again. In her search for a new cat, she’s recruited scouts to look for a male, nonblack, “chill” cat. “I gave my friends a bunch of interview questions,” says Miele. “I was like okay, there’s a bump in the night. Do you bite whatever’s closest to you, do you hiss, or do you just cuddle harder? There is a correct answer. Please ask every kitten.”

These careful requirements for the future Tater Tots—although Coupons and Mrs. Nesbitt were close runners-up for potential names—are designed to protect the legacy of the female, black, un-chill Pasta watching from photo frames around the apartment. “She died over a month ago, and I’m so worried I’m gonna get this kitten and then people are gonna treat me like that guy whose wife dies and he’s married to a younger woman three months later,” says Miele. As the cat interviews get underway, Miele, who’s been featured on Comedy Central, NPR, and Hulu, and gone viral on YouTube and TikTok, is hard at work on her next animal-related project. She plans to branch out into the world of the hour-long TV dramedy. The historical details of her script, about animals and medicine set in the 1960s, will take some research, but Miele’s veterinarian parents taught her the main theme by heart. After completing her current set of North American shows, Miele, who has also starred in a web series and done an hourlong YouTube comedy special, will return to Europe, where she was packing houses before the pandemic sent her back to New York City. The comedian attributes her international success to two things: other countries’ Hollywood-enhanced familiarity with American accents, and the global

HotCakes was overwhelmed by a brisk goodbye business during its final days, as patrons lined up for last slices of Torta Rustica, Strawberries & Cream Cake, and quiche of the day. McEwan, who is extremely grateful for the outpouring of support from the Charlottesville community, says she’ll turn to something outside of the food world, but many will be pleased to learn that the concept might not be gone for good. “We are in conversation with people who have expressed interest in picking up the business and carrying it forward,” she says.—Will Ham

HORTON VINEYARDS 2019 Rkatsiteli Rkatsiteli is an ancient vitis vinifera grape that can be traced back to the country of Georgia, located at the crossroads of Western Asia and Eastern Europe.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “If we’re not careful, we are apt to grant ultimate value to something we’ve just made up in our heads,” said Zen priest Kosho Uchiyama. In my view, that’s a problem all of us should always be alert for. As I survey my own past, I’m embarrassed and amused as I remember the countless times I committed this faux pas. For instance, during one eight-month period, I inexplicably devoted myself to courting a woman who had zero interest in a romantic relationship with me. I bring this to your attention, Sagittarius, because I’m concerned that right now, you’re more susceptible than usual to making this mistake. But since I’ve warned you, maybe you’ll avoid it. I hope so!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Capricorn author Asha Sanaker writes, “There is a running joke about us Capricorns that we age backwards. Having been born as burdened, cranky old people, we become lighter and more joyful as we age because we have gained so much practice in wielding responsibility. And in this way we learn, over time, about what are our proper burdens to carry and what are not. We develop clear boundaries around how to hold our obligations with grace.” Sanaker’s thoughts will serve as an excellent meditation for you in the coming weeks. You’re in a phase when you can make dramatic progress in embodying the skills she articulates.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): As author Denise Linn reminded us, “The way you treat yourself sends a very clear message to others about how they should treat you.” With that advice as your inspiration, I will ask you to deepen your devotion to self-care in the coming weeks. I will encourage you to shower yourself with more tenderness and generosity than you have ever done in your life. I will also urge you to make sure these efforts are apparent to everyone in your life. I am hoping for you to accomplish a permanent upgrade in your love for yourself, which should lead to a similar upgrade in the kindness you receive from others.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): To encourage young people to come to its shows, the English National Opera has offered a lot of cheap tickets. Here’s another incentive: Actors sing in English, not Italian or French or German. Maybe most enticing for audiences is that they are encouraged to boo the villains. The intention is to make attendees feel relaxed and free to express themselves. I’m pleased to give you Scorpios permission to boo the bad guys in your life during the coming weeks. In fact, I will love it if you are extra eloquent and energetic about articulating all your true feelings. In my view, now is prime time for you to show the world exactly who you are.

world, the first thing you do is visualize it. The practical actions you take to live the life you want to live always refer back to the scenes in your mind’s eye. And so every goal you fulfill, every quest you carry out, every liberation you achieve, begins as an inner vision. Your imagination is the engine of your destiny. It’s the catalyst with which you design your future. I bring these ideas to your attention, dear Pisces, because November is Celebrate Your Imagination Month.

Aries (March 21-April 19): Are you still hoping to heal from psychological wounds that you rarely speak about? May I suggest that you consider speaking about them in the coming weeks? Not to just anyone and everyone, of course, but rather to allies who might be able to help you generate at least a partial remedy. The moment is ripe, in my opinion. Now is a favorable time for you to become actively involved in seeking cures, fixes, and solace. Life will be more responsive than usual to such efforts.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): “The delights of self-discovery are always available,” writes author Gail Sheehy. I will add that those delights will be extra accessible for you in the coming weeks. In my view, you’re in a phase of super-learning about yourself. You will attract help and support if you passionately explore mysteries and riddles that have eluded your understanding. Have fun surprising and entertaining yourself, Taurus. Make it your goal to catch a new glimpse of your hidden depths every day.

Gemini (May 21-June 20): Gemini novelist and philosopher Muriel Barbery says, “I find this a fascinating phenomenon: the ability we

have to manipulate ourselves so that the foundation of our beliefs is never shaken.” In the coming weeks, I hope you will overcome any tendency you might have to manipulate yourself in such a way. In my view, it’s crucial for your mental and spiritual health that you at least question your belief system‚ and perhaps even risk shaking its foundation. Don’t worry: Even if doing so ushers in a period of uncertainty, you’ll be much stronger for it in the long run. More robust and complete beliefs will be available for you to embrace.

Cancer (June 21-July 22): In her book Mathilda, novelist Mary Shelley has the main character ask, “What had I to love?” And the answer? “Oh, many things: there was the moonshine, and the bright stars; the breezes and the refreshing rains; there was the whole earth and the sky that covers it.” I bring this to your attention in the hope of inspiring you to make your own tally of all the wonders you love. I trust your inventory will be at least ten times as long as Mathilda’s. Now is a favorable time for you to gather all the healing that can come from feeling waves of gratitude, even adoration, for the people, animals, experiences, situations, and places that rouse your interest and affection and devotion.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Our memories are always changing. Whenever we call up a specific remembrance, it’s different from the last time we visited that same remembrance‚ colored by all the new memories we have accumulated in the meantime. Over time, an event we recall from when we were 9 years old has gone through a great deal of shapeshifting in our memory so much so that it may have little resemblance to the first time

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In 1962, astronaut John Glenn became the first American to orbit the Earth in a spacecraft. His flight marked the first time that NASA, the agency in charge of spaceflight, had ever used electronic computers. Glenn, who was also an engineer, wanted the very best person to verify the calculations, and that was Virgo mathematician Katherine Johnson. In fact, Glenn said he wouldn’t fly without her involvement. I bring this to your attention, Virgo, because I believe the coming months will be a favorable time for you to garner the kind of respect and recognition that Katherine Johnson got from John Glenn. Make sure everyone who needs to know does indeed know about your aptitudes and skills.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): According to an Apache proverb, “It is better to have less thunder in the mouth and more lightning in the hand.” If you act on that counsel in the coming weeks, you will succeed in doing what needs to be done. There is only one potential downfall you could be susceptible to, in my view, and that is talking and thinking too much about the matter you want to accomplish before you actually take action to accomplish it. All the power you need will arise as you resolutely wield the lightning in your hands. Expanded weekly audio horoscopes and daily text message horoscopes: Real Astrology.com, (877) 873-4888

CAAR Homes Sales Report Third Quarter 2021 Market Report Key Takeaways Economic Conditions • In the third quarter of 2021, while economic conditions remained positive, there was a slowdown in job growth in Virginia. The unemployment picture continued to improve in the Charlottesville region, and economic conditions should become more certain over the next few months. • Consumer confidence has fallen amidst renewed uncertainties about the Delta variant. Individuals, families, and businesses have been rethinking plans that seemed more certain earlier this year. • Mortgage rates remain at historically low levels, but an improving economy will lead to moderate increases in the average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage rate.

REAL ESTATE NEWS

Housing Market Conditions • There were 1,393 homes sold in the CAAR region during the third quarter. Sales were down 4% compared to last year at this time, a decline of 54 sales regionwide. • Home prices continued to rise in the CAAR area. In the third quarter, the median sales price was $365,000, which is up 12% over a year ago, a gain of more than $38,000. • Inventory continued to be very limited in the CAAR region. There were 643 active listings across the CAAR footprint at the end of the third quarter, 30% fewer listings than this time last year.

Key Trends Dashboard, CAAR Economy • 3.3% | Is the Aug-2021 unemployment rate in the CAAR footprint, which is down from Jul-2021 • 3.01% | Is the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage rate during the last week of September 2021, which is up from a year ago

Economic Overview Virginia’s economy continues to improve, though the Delta variant has taken the wind out of its sails. The growing uncertainty over the summer and into the fall has eroded consumer confidence and has made businesses rethink opening decisions. Despite the uncertainty, it is expected that the state’s economy will continue to expand throughout the rest of 2021 and growth will accelerate in 2022. In August 2021, there was a total of 3.91 million jobs in Virginia, which is up 82,500 jobs from a year ago. Job growth

has been steady, but the pace of the economic recovery has slowed. There are still about 175,000 fewer jobs in Virginia than there were before the pandemic. It is projected that the state will not regain all of the jobs lost during the pandemic and the recession until at least the end of 2022. The statewide unemployment rate was 3.8% in August 2021. The statewide unemployment rate has been falling steadily for the past 18 months. The unemployment rate in the Charlottesville region fell to 3.3% in August 2021. Like the rest of the state, the region’s economy has been impacted by the rise of the Delta variant, but economic conditions should improve in the weeks and months to come. New residential construction activity continued to outpace last year’s activity in the Charlottesville metropolitan area. In the first eight months of 2021, there was a total of 910 permits issued for the construction of new homes in the region, including 628 single-family

homes and 282 housing units in multifamily buildings (including duplexes and townhomes). Compared to the first eight months of 2020, housing construction in the region was up 46%, with an increase of 27% in permits for new single-family homes and an increase of 115% in permits for units in multifamily buildings. While single-family homes dominated the new residential construction activity, accounting for more than two-thirds of all permits issued in 2021, there continued to be a shift towards more development of duplexes, townhomes, and other multifamily buildings. Last year, in the first eight months of 2020, about 21% of new residential construction permits issued were for multifamily units. In 2021, that share has increased to 31%. The Delta variant has also impacted consumer confidence, as individuals and families are feeling more uncertain. In September 2021, the measure of confidence in the present economic situation was 148.5, down from nearly 170 earlier this summer. The measure of consumers’ confidence in future economic conditions fell to 89.1 in September, after rising steadily throughout the late spring and early summer. A consumer confidence index above 100 indicates people are feeling more optimistic about economic conditions. The average rate on a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage has consistently been below 3% for most of the past year. With an improving economy, mortgage rates have been rising slightly, though they still remain at historically low levels. At the end of September, the average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage rate had edged up to just above 3%. Rates are expected to rise modestly over the next few months but should remain below 3.5% throughout the end of the year.

Housing Market Overview It was a busy housing market in the third quarter in the CAAR region, though market activity was slower than it had been during the very hot third quarter of 2020. While there were slightly fewer sales in the third quarter compared to last year at this time, home prices continued to surge at double-digit rates and the average days on market continued to fall. Inventory remained very limited in the CAAR region, with the available supply at less than a third of what it was five years ago. The demand could cool somewhat at the end of 2021 and into 2022, as limited supply frustrates some buyers and rising prices put homeownership out of reach for others.

Sales There were 1,393 sales across the CAAR footprint in the third quarter of 2021. Home sales were down 4% compared to the third quarter of 2020, reflecting a drop of 54 sales. It is not surprising that sales this quarter were lower than last year’s third quarter totals, since many spring sales were pushed into the summer. Home sales were 6% higher than they were in the third quarter of 2019. Statewide, the number of home sales in the third quarter was up 2% compared to last year and was 19% higher than third quarter 2019 sales totals.

Total sold dollar volume expanded in the third quarter, although the rate of volume growth has slowed considerably. An increase in sold volume was driven by strong price growth, even as total regional sales slowed year-over-year. There was approximately $612.1 million of sold volume in the CAAR housing market during the third quarter. Sold volume is up 3% compared to a year ago, a gain of about $19.2 million. Sold volume is up more than 27% compared to the third quarter of 2019.

While inventory is expanding in some markets in Virginia, the supply of homes available for sale continued to shrink in the CAAR footprint. There were 643 active listings in the region at the end of the third quarter. There were 282 fewer active listings on the market than there were last year at this time, a decline of 30%. While inventory in the CAAR region continued to decline, the rate of year-over-year decline has started to slow. Nevertheless, supply is incredibly limited in the CAAR markets, which has created challenging conditions for prospective buyers. At the state level, inventory fell in the third quarter. Statewide, there was a total of 20,726 active listings, which is about 1,800 fewer active listings than a year ago, an 8% drop. There was about 1.5 months of supply at the end of the third quarter in the CAAR footprint, down from 2.5 months a year ago. The months of supply metric is calculated by taking the average monthly sales over the preceding 12-month period and dividing it by the inventory of active listings.

Days on Market

About VR

Homes in the CAAR market continued to sell quickly. Homes that sold in the third quarter in the region were on the market about a month on average, or 24 days, which is 38 days faster than a year ago. The average days on market in the CAAR region has been declining for five consecutive quarters and reflects tight market conditions. Statewide, homes sold in an average of 21 days in the third quarter, down from 39 days a year ago.

Inventory

Prices continued to rise quicky in the CAAR region. The third quarter median sales price in the area was $365,000, which is 12% higher than last year, a gain of more than $38,000. Home prices were up in the third quarter in all local markets in the CAAR region, with the exception of the City of Charlottesville. Upward pressure on prices continues to be driven by low inventory and active buyers in the market. The median sales price statewide was $355,000, up 8% compared to a year ago.

Distilleries 2021: More and Better BY KEN WILSON

CAAR REAL ESTATE WEEKLY WWW.CAAR.COM

C

andy is dandy but liquor is quicker, to quote a phrase, and if you’re looking for the high-end stuff around here, you don’t have far to go. A spirited search for exceptional spirits will yield any number of charming little craft distilleries in Charlottesville and just a few miles beyond. Cocktail culture has been with us for a while, but sipping societies should be in vogue real soon, given the loving care and patient skill with which local distillers—not hidden in them thar hills, but practicing their trade in plain city sight— coax and infuse their products. Would you like an exquisite single malt? How about brandy made from the oldest fruit in the country? At the bar, moderation is advised, but on paper, we can taste as much as we like. So let’s begin.

Monte Piccolo Distillery Out in Ivy in the figurative shadow of Monticello (“small mountain”) sits Monte Piccolo (“tiny mountain”) Farm. Blood peach, Burford and Bartlett pear, and apricot trees delight visitors with their pink and white blossoms in springtime. But it’s the three unique Varietal Gins™ and three fruit brandies produced here that are the

real draw—and the real fascination. “If it’s interesting, I pursue it with a passion,” says Robin Felder, Monte Piccolo’s scientist, orchardist, dreamer and distiller. And that’s a statement of fact: In addition to his duties as Associate Director of Clinical Chemistry and Toxicology at the University of Virginia, Felder runs a robotics engineering lab and a large research program with PhD students, and edits a new journal called Scientific Spirits, on the science of distillation. And oh, he heads out west twice a year to gather juniper for his gins. “If you go to the gin section in the liquor store, there is no mention as to which juniper species was used in making that gin,” Felder notes, “and there are 61 species of juniper. All the berries are decidedly different in terms of size and color, and of smell, which is what you’re after.” He sees an opening here. Like the distilleries in Scotland that give the world single malt whiskey, Monte Piccolo’s three gins (more are coming) each have a singular, and in this case, organic root. While visiting his daughter in Santa Fe, Felder gathers Juniperus santa fe berries. On his own property, he grows Juniperus virginiana (Virginia juniper) and Camellia japonica (Japanese cypress, in the

gins, anisette, two coffee liqueurs, orange and paw paw liqueurs, apple brandy and strawberry eau de vie, plus “collabs” (collaborations with other areas distillers) that include a Distiller’s Reserve Conifer infused with springtime trimmings of blue spruce and balsam fir. “Terroir” is a term familiar to wine lovers, but at Vitae Spirits it connotes not just a particular natural environment, but the community relationships formed there. Glomski has worked with Mudhouse Coffee Roasters too, developing a coffee liqueur, cold brewed with Mudhouse’s Intention Blend and mixed with house-made sugar cane spirits. The result: “Notes of chocolate, soft stone fruit like plum and cherry, and caramel.” Tastings can be had in Charlottesville at 715 Henry Avenue and at 101 East Water Street.

Monte Piccolo’s tasting room should be open by Christmas. Tours and tastings are available now by appointment.

and that’s how Courage & Conviction, the new American single malt at Lovingston’s Virginia Distillery Company, got its name. A native Irishman, Moore had a passion for single malt—and for Virginia. After a career building businesses in the U.S. and Ireland, he founded his distillery in 2011. Today his wife Angela, their son Gareth, along with Gareth’s wife, Maggie, are carrying George’s legacy forward. Courage & Conviction is distilled with American malted barley and Virginia Blue Ridge Mountain water, and aged a minimum of three years in either sherry, bourbon, and cuvée (sourced from European red wine vintners) casks. It’s so good that it’s been recommended by Esquire magazine. Each cask adds its own character. Sherry Cask is matured in Spanish Sherry casks, for notes of cherry, fig, golden raisin and caramelized plum. Bourbon Cask is matured in casks sourced from bourbon country in Kentucky; it tastes of vanilla, caramel, butterscotch and toffee. Cuvée Single Cask is matured in wine casks and bottled at 118.4 proof. The interiors of these cuvée casks are shaved, re-toasted and re-charred before the spirit is introduced for maturation. Virginia Distillery Company’s Visitors Center is closed while it builds a new

juniper family). Each varietal gives the gin its own unique aroma and mouth feel; each gin is then finished with its own blend of herbs and botanicals, like lemon grass and lemon verbena, which add citrus notes. But Felder has even more to introduce to American spirits connoisseurs. Listen to him wax eloquent, and you might come away thinking of his fruit brandies—eau-de-vies as they’re termed on European shores—as the Proustian madeleine of liquors. “What I’m smelling right now is just like a fresh peach,” he says, as he swirls an elegant chimneyshaped glass designed to concentrate the aroma of its contents. “And it brings back early summer memories for me.” Felder thinks the place for his 80 proof, no sugar brandies—he also does distillations derived from apricots and Burford pears—is on the dessert menu, as an alternative, say, to that high-caloric four-layer chocolate cake. They’re meant to be savored slowly, as digestifs and conversation extenders. “I’m just trying to open up the eau de vie style,” he says. “Every country has theirs—in Germany it’s schnapps.”

Spirit Lab Distilling Passion, curiosity, and DIY ingenuity drive today’s mall craft spirit makers. Take Ivar Aass, who arrived in Charlottesville from New York City in 2012 after stints in Norway, Indonesia and France. In 2016 his brand-new Spirit Lab Distilling released a first, tiny batch of 100 percent barley single malt, using a wild yeast strain Aass started years ago in his kitchen. It sold out in hours. In 2021 the Lab’s Batch No. 10, “Aass Cask Strength” Ghost Tiger single malt smells of “honey, vanilla, toast, crème brûlée, leather and black tea,” and tastes of “refined oak, deep sherry and fig.” At 58 percent alcohol by volume—116 proof—it’s a slow sipper, the perfect accompaniment for a long, leisurely têteà-tête on a cold winter’s night. Today’s Craft Cocktail movement has rediscovered Old Tom Gin, a spirit highly popular in 18th-century England. Sweeter than the more common London Dry, it’s drier than Dutch Jenever. Aass drew on his family’s Norwegian moonshiner recipe as inspiration for his spin on the once almost forgotten tradition, the Barrel-Rested Old Tom Gin. Named the “Tom’s Envy,” it was the Crowd Favorite Cocktail at the most recent Tom Tom Founders Festival. It’s a gin with notes of spruce, French lavender, fresh citrus zest, lemon verbena, baking spices of cardamom, star anise and clove. Good liquor deserves a worthy presentation, and Aass, like his colleagues, provides his with beautiful labels. He designs, handprints, and numbers unique labels every batch, using Bernhard Gothic Medium type on 100 percent cotton Rives lightweight cream stock paper. Black tomcats adorned many Old Tom Gin labels back in the day. Spirit Lab’s version pays homage to its nine-pound, black-and-white feline—not a tomcat, but just as fearsome, or so she fancies. Kids and dogs—or cats on leashes—are welcome to come along, but will not be

served, for Spirit Lab’s $10 per person tastings. Complimentary tours are available when the staff has time. One-day, whiskey distilling crash courses are offered periodically.

More and Better Yes, we have our pick around here. Waterbird Spirits makes canned vodka cocktails. North American Sake Brewing makes seven varieties of sake from American-grown rice and Blue Ridge Mountain water. Ragged Branch in Albemarle County, Silverback in Afton, and Copper Fox in Sperryville produce the hard stuff, and some mother’s son somewhere is getting the distilling bug himself. “Scotch, whiskey and spirits are lifelong passions for me,” Aass says today, “and I’d always wanted to learn how to make them, so I started tinkering around in my NYC apartment with a tiny stovetop still to see what I could do. I was instantly hooked. Even back then, I was sharing what I’d made with friends in blind tastings, and they were impressed, so I knew I was onto something.” Yes, it used to be that there were bootleggers and there were “mad scientists.” Today the guy (it’s usually a guy) keeping the locals happy and the guy messing around in the lab with an (innocent) gleam in his eye are one and the same— the friendly Central Virginia distiller. Felder’s father created the prototype. “My father always had an open bar policy for my brothers and me,” Felder remembers. “We lived in Europe for three and a half years, so we drank wine as little tykes; we were taught very early how to do social drinking responsibly. When I got to age 16 my father said, “Do you know what this means? From now on you buy your own liquor.” And I said, “Oh, can you help me make a still? And the rest is history.” But not right away. At first, “I made lots of sake,” Felder says. Decades later on sabbatical in Switzerland, he discovered a bottle of the highly popular regional pear liquor in the chalet where he was staying. “I took a sip of that and I turned to my wife and I said, “This is my future.” His, that is, and our own lucky palates.

“Will the apartment still be available when they hear my accent?”

“ I called five different numbers about apartments for rent. They all said they had been rented. I started to get suspicious so I had a white friend call. Suddenly these apartments were available.” If you believe you may be a victim of housing discrimination, contact HUD or your local Fair Housing Center:

Your Choice. Your Right. Your Home.

A public service message from the National Fair Housing Alliance. The federal Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination because of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, familial status or disability. For more information, visit www.hud.gov/fairhousing.
