THIS WEEK How are cities made—or not made? All kinds of forces are currently shaping Charlottesville’s growth. Sometimes those forces aren’t exciting. In the case of the project discussed on page 13, bureaucratic ineptitude more than anything else is the culprit for a development stalling. The UVA Student Planners Association (p. 15) might identify an additional shortcoming in the way we think about our city, though: a lack of imagination. Last week, the idealistic planners parked themselves in a parking spot outside Bodo’s, setting up a demonstration prompting passersby to imagine what this place would look like with more parks and less parking. A greener reality won’t come to be overnight. We’re awfully dependent on cars in this country and in this area, and unwinding that is no small project. But moving forward starts with asking questions, and the student planners are asking good ones. How could we squeeze a bike lane in here? What if that empty alley had a park in it? Do you really need to drive today? And— most importantly—what kind of city do we want to live in?—Ben Hitchcock

McAuliffe and Youngkin take debate stage

IN BRIEF Map mixers

Virginia’s new bipartisan redistricting commission continues its attempt to create a map of state House and Senate districts that both parties consider fair. The commission is comprised of eight Democrats and eight Republicans, and each cohort hired a consultant to draw up statewide map drafts. Those drafts were submitted this week, and now the commission is tasked with mashing the maps together to create something passable for everyone. The group is supposed to finalize a new map by October 10.

SKYCLAD AERIAL

governor pledged to defend women’s right to abortion, and advocated for enshrining Roe v. Wade in the Virginia constitution. One of the moderators pressed McAuliffe on his decision to mention Donald Trump in so many of his campaign ads, and in his rhetoric throughout the campaign. “My opponent is a Trump wannabe,” McAuliffe responded. McAuliffe repeatedly stated that Youngkin’s economic plans would “run Virginia into a ditch.” The Republican’s plans include a $10 billion education cut that McAuliffe said would force 43,000 out of work. When asked about climate change, Youngkin said he would not have signed the Virginia Clean Economy Act—which was passed in 2020 and aims to get Virginia electric utilities to 100 percent renewable generation by 2050—while McAuliffe said “of course” he would have signed it.

Early voting is now open Early in-person voting for Virginia’s November 2 election began last Friday. Charlottesville residents can submit ballots at the City Hall Annex downtown, and Albemarle County residents can vote at the County Office Building on Fifth Street. Everyone in the state will have an opportunity to vote for governor, lieutenant governor, and attorney general, as well as their House of Delegates member. City residents will have to choose two of three City Council candidates, as well. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for a comprehensive election preview from C-VILLE.

Both candidates opposed ending qualified immunity for police officers. When candidates were given the opportunity to ask each other questions, McAuliffe asked Youngkin if he believed a nurse treating an immunocompromised patient should be required to get a vaccine. Youngkin asserted that it should be the nurse’s choice, and criticized McAuliffe for his intentions to mandate vaccines. Youngkin has made “election integrity” a major talking point in his campaign, echoing false assertions from national Republicans that the 2020 presidential election included voter fraud. When pressed by moderators, both candidates pledged to absolutely accept the results of the election, win or lose. The next debate will take place September 28.—Kristin O’Donoghue

This week, Pfizer announced that its coronavirus vaccine is safe and effective for children ages 5 to 11, based on robust trial results. The company plans to apply for emergency use authorization from the Food and Drug Administration by the end of the month, according to the Associated Press. Also this week, the FDA is expected to approve Pfizer booster shots for high-risk adults. The Blue Ridge Health District continues to hold vaccination events regularly, including walk-in vaccination opportunities five times per week.

ubernatorial candidates Terry McAuliffe and Glenn Youngkin butted heads in the 2021 election’s first debate last week. McAuliffe, a longtime Democrat insider who served as governor of Virginia from 2014-2018, stood by his record, while former private equity boss Youngkin styled himself as a businessman who knows how to “get things done.” When asked about his position on abortion, Youngkin said that he would support a “pain-threshold bill” that included exceptions in the case of incest, rape, or if the mother’s life was in jeopardy. “My opponent wants to be the abortion governor, and I want to be the jobs governor,” Youngkin said. McAuliffe warned that if Virginia instituted a ban like Texas, high-tech companies would be driven out of the state. The former

Thanks in part to the pandemic, local school districts are facing a dire shortage of bus drivers. In an effort to address the problem, this summer Charlottesville City Schools gave its drivers a $2,400 bonus. That sparked a bit of local free market competition—Albemarle County has announced that it’s now offering a $2,500 bonus for new drivers. The Daily Progress reports that Charlottesville is 20 drivers short and Albemarle currently has 18 transportation jobs open.

To build or not to build City development stalls; county greenlights 190 affordable units County approves 254 units near Forest Lakes

By Sean Tubbs

SUPPLIED PHOTO

A

The proposed Stribling Avenue development project has gone back to the developer for additional review.

Armstrong expressed frustration at the discrepancy between the estimates. “That’s not a number that I’ve ever seen published, or have ever heard,” Armstrong said, even though the company has “been talking with the city, and been in this review process with the city, for months and years.” The city doesn’t have much to spare by way of capital improvement funding: Last week, council opted to transfer funding allocated for the West Main Streetscape to the $75 million reconfiguration of Buford Middle School. Budget staff said that could require as much as a 15-cent tax increase next year. “Right now, every penny we are going to have in capital funds is going to get allocated for school reconfiguration,” said City Councilor Lloyd Snook. The co-president of the FSNA appreciated the work that went into the agreement, but said it was not yet enough to satisfy his concerns. “There is a potential to find a solution here, but there is a big but,” said Jason Halbert. “It’s about safety on that street and the JPA intersection.”

Halbert said the agreement had not been fully reviewed by the appropriate staff. He asked for the project to be delayed while the details of the agreement are worked out. Planning Commissioner Hosea Mitchell said he liked the project overall but agreed it might not be ready. “I think it could use a little more baking,” Mitchell said. “There would be value in sitting with the engineers and the economic development people and working out the details and logistics.” Another commissioner suggested the city has to do a better job of communicating internally on matters like this, especially given that the current draft of the city’s new comprehensive plan encourages the creation of more dense housing across the city. “It’s endlessly frustrating to me, the degree of dysfunction within the city,” said Commissioner Rory Stolzenburg, “that the economic development office is negotiating this agreement and isn’t even telling [the city engineer] about it until literally two days ago.” Southern Development requested an infinite deferral to see if the details can be worked out.

Also last week, the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors approved a development that will see 254 apartments—190 of which will be set aside as affordable housing—constructed just off Route 29. The project was approved in a 5-1 vote. The county’s comprehensive plan had highlighted the area as a good spot for potential growth. “I personally live in an area where many apartment units have gone up,” said Ned Gallaway, chair of the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors. “And they fill quickly. The question is whether the infrastructure is there to support the density.”

“It’s endlessly frustrating to me, the degree of dysfunction within the city.” PLANNING COMMISSIONER RORY STOLZENBURG

Throughout the approval process, the community association of the nearby Forest Lakes neighborhood argued against the project, saying it was out of scale with their existing neighborhoods. “We talk a lot about how we are an inclusive and welcoming place to live. This is an opportunity to create a place for people to live that have not been able to live in our community,” said Supervisor Diantha McKeel. In her support for the project, McKeel noted that VDOT has invested nearly $230 million in road improvements in Albemarle within recent years, and is currently studying how to further expand transit to the area.

PVCC IS HIRING!

September 22 – 28, 2021 c-ville.com

fter a public hearing last week, the Charlottesville Planning Commission sent a proposal for 170 new housing units back to the developer for updates. Southern Development is asking the city to rezone 12 acres of land in the Fry’s Spring neighborhood to allow the construction of a new complex of townhomes and apartments. Fifteen percent of those units would have to be designated affordable housing. “The Planning Commission told us very clearly [they] wanted to see something more dense and less suburban,” said Charlie Armstrong, vice president at Southern Development. The development’s fate could depend on whether or not the city and the developers can scrounge up enough cash to fund sidewalk upgrades and other safety improvements around the area. Last year, the Fry’s Spring Neighborhood Association expressed support for the development on the condition that such updates went through. Armstrong then negotiated an agreement with the Office of Economic Development, promising that Southern Development would give a $2 million loan to the city to build those improvements. The city would then pay Southern Development back over a period of years out of the increased property taxes that it’s set to receive. At the meeting, the city and the developer clashed over the specifics of the deal: Southern Development estimates the infrastructure upgrades will cost around $1.6 million. City Engineer Jack Dawson said he’d only seen the proposal two days before the meeting, but that it could cost as much as $2.9 million in his estimation. “It isn’t just a sidewalk. It’s essentially a streetscape, because when you touch a road you need to bring it up to code,” he said.

Put it in park UVA Student Planners Association turns a parking spot into a party By Kristin O’Donoghue

U

sually, the strip of pavement outside the Bodo’s on the Corner is reserved for parked cars. Last Friday, that space was filled with bright green turf, spiky potted ferns, students in lawn chairs, and a three-foot tall Connect Four game. The set-up was created by UVA’s Student Planners Association to celebrate Park(ing) Day, an international day of advocacy in which environmentally minded groups convert parking spaces into mini parks, or “parklets.” Park(ing) Day is a “global, public, participatory art project,” and serves as a day on which people across the world convert parking spaces into tiny parks and places for “art, play, and activism,” write the artists behind the project on the Park(ing) Day website. The event has been observed on the third Friday of each September for the past 16 years. What started as a guerilla art project has evolved into a global movement to reclaim urban space and engage in urban transformation. By participating in Park(ing) Day, SPA hopes to “raise people’s awareness of how much public space has been taken over by automobiles, and offer an alternate

Simpson, an urban and environmental planning student in the university’s School of Architecture, says thinking about parking is key if Virginia hopes to become more green. “There is too much focus on making more space for cars by expanding highways and building more parking lots,” he says. “Virginia should disinvest in auto-centric development, and instead invest in public transportation options such as commuter rail, light rail, and bus rapid transit, in addition to enhanced infrastructure for pedestrians and bicyclists.” Activists say that consequences of autocentric development include increased pollution, the expansion of environmentally damaging urban sprawl, and more injuries and deaths for pedestrians and bicyclists. According to the Park(ing) Day creators, the phenomenon of parklets exploded during the COVID pandemic, and the group decided to develop a manual for those seeking to create their own installations. “All over the country, almost overnight, parking spaces and streets have been transformed into places for people,” Parking Day co-creator John Bela wrote in The Dirt. According to Simpson, the Park(ing) Day event was a “huge success,” as the installation got a lot of attention from passersby, and the club, which has about 30 members, added a few new recruits. The next big item on SPA’s calendar is the 15th annual 100-Mile Thanksgiving potluck for urban and environmental planning students and faculty. All the food will feature recipes using local ingredients sourced from within 100 miles of Charlottesville. In the meantime, they’ll be parked close by.

practices that have devastated the Black community in this city.” Walker reiterated that she felt her fellow city councilors were not concerned enough about the circumstances surrounding the firing. “The rest of you just sit there and don’t say anything,” Walker said. She specifically addressed Lloyd Snook, a defense attorney: “Unless you’re motivated by getting more clients for you to provide inept defense for, you should be concerned about how police treat citizens in this community.” “I certainly want greater clarity on motivations of the decision, and what the plan is for the future direction of the department, as well as criminal justice reform efforts that the department was involved in,” Councilor Michael Payne said to Boyles. Payne felt that the timing of the firing suggested the decision was a “direct response to the PBA.” “Regardless of intent,” Payne said, “it sends a message that reform had gone too far.”

T

hree weeks ago, Charlottesville City Manager Chip Boyles announced that he had decided to fire Police Chief RaShall Brackney. The city will open a national search for the next chief of police, though community members and city councilors alike feel the reasons for Brackney’s dismissal remain murky. And for a city beset with organizational turmoil—and a police department that’s proven itself resistant to reform—the path forward is anything but clear.

Brackney in hindsight

EZE AMOS

Brackney, the first Black woman to serve as Charlottesville’s police chief, was hired in the aftermath of the Unite the Right rally and relieved of duty after less than three years in charge. Shortly before her departure, the area Police Benevolent Association released an anonymous survey of 66 police officers, in which they expressed their dislike for Brackney and a lack of faith in her leadership. After that, the city made public multiple documents detailing police officers’ bad behavior, and implying that Brackney’s unpopularity was a result of her attempts to change the department’s racist and sexist culture. Boyles has not taken media questions about Brackney’s firing, though he has penned two press releases and a Daily Progress op-ed explaining his decision. The survey of officers “revealed substantial concerns of trust and confidence in the leadership,” wrote Boyles in the Progress last Sunday. “While great strides were made during Chief Brackney’s time with the department in areas of racial equity and addressing officer conduct, many of these changes came about at the expense of leadership mistrust among many of the officers we depend on to protect and serve our city.” Boyles claimed that he wished he could have involved City Council more in his decision and worked with Brackney to develop an “improvement plan,” but felt that he needed to act quickly before the department became “gripped in chaos.” “I took decisive action to prevent key leadership positions—which were in jeopardy of becoming vacant—from erupting into deeper divides within the department,” he explained. “I did not expect to be confronted with such anger and vitriol...I felt the larger community would respect my intentions.” Mayor Nikuyah Walker, who criticized Brackney’s firing, said it was the last straw in a decision to cancel her own November re-

Questions remain

Mayor Nikuyah Walker recently called off her re-election bid, saying Brackney’s dismissal was the “final straw” after months of contemplating dropping out of the City Council race.

election campaign. At Monday night’s City Council meeting, she pressed Boyles for answers about his decision-making process. Boyles said he spoke with half a dozen police officers, met with the Police Benevolent Association twice, and consulted other law enforcement agencies including the UVA Police Department, the Albemarle County Police Department, and the Emergency Communications Center. The city manager said he couldn’t go into more detail because he felt the officers and leaders he’d consulted had a “confidentiality right” when they spoke with him about the chief. “You have said in the past that the reforms that were taking place were necessary,” Walker told Boyles. “I think you should be able to give us a general understanding of what the complaints were, and how you made a decision that those complaints were more important than reforming racist policing

Charlottesville leaders who have followed the police department closely in recent years say the city has to learn from this saga in order to move toward its stated police reform goals. Local activists Don Gathers and Rosia Parker appreciated Brackney’s efforts to modernize the department and address longstanding racial issues. They praised her for ending the department’s relationship with the Jefferson Area Drug Enforcement Task Force and dissolving the CPD SWAT team after reports of misconduct surfaced. Brackney also was supportive of the Obama administration’s report on 21st-century policing, which emphasized police transparency and accountability, outlined specific use-of-force policies, and detailed critical steps toward police reform. Gathers also understands the immense pressure Brackney faced. “Coming in on the heels of the Unite the Right rally, any chief was going to have issues,” says Gathers. “I’m not sure if she ever fully embraced the community as some would have hoped she would have, but I’m certain there was at least a popular segment of the community who never embraced her.” Albemarle County detective and Central Virginia Police Benevolent Association president Mike Wells worked to push the survey into the public eye, and has praised the decision to fire Brackney. Wells did not respond to a request for comment. Parker had issues with the former chief ’s communication—she says that Brackney lied to the community about her actions multiple times, and spoke publicly against her and other community members. She wishes that

Now hiring At the end of Monday’s council meeting, city leadership discussed the process for hiring a new chief. Boyles said the city will first have to hire an interim chief, and that person would ideally be someone from within Virginia who could start almost immediately. Then the city will conduct a national search for a permanent candidate. The search process will require retaining a firm and consulting with community groups.

“I certainly want greater clarity on motivations of the decision, and what the plan is for the future direction of the department.” CITY COUNCILOR MICHAEL PAYNE

The last time Charlottesville had to retain a search firm to select a candidate for a major position was in January, when Tarron Richardson’s resignation left the city without a city manager. That hiring firm wound up calling off their contract when the firm’s boss told Snook that he had “never seen a level of dysfunction as profound as what he was seeing here.” Both Walker and Payne said they were concerned that the applicant pool of potential chiefs wouldn’t exactly be brimming with reform-minded progressives. Boyles agreed with the councilors that it was vital for the new chief to arrive with a desire to change the department. Walker suggested amending the city’s charter to allow City Council to have approval on high-ranking city appointments such as police chief. Currently, the hiring power lies with the city manager. “This may be a very difficult position to fill,” Boyles said of the vacancy he created.

To successfully implement the crucial reforms many in the community have called for, the new police chief must understand Charlottesville’s complicated history and politics, and be committed to 21st-century policing, the activists say. They should also be strong-willed and have thick skin, but be able to listen to the entire community and find common ground. A new chief should “at least have some type of knowledge of what it is that you’re going to do when you come here to Charlottesville,” says Parker, who was a key part of the creation of Charlottesville’s Police Civilian Review Board. “You’re coming in behind so many different things that have taken place within the department. And have an understanding of what is the meaning for what Black people are going through today.” Parker emphasizes that the chief should have a “no-nonsense” attitude, and not hesitate to hold officers accountable and discipline them when they are out of line. They should also prioritize building strong, transparent relationships with the community and the Police Civilian Review Board. Gathers wants the new chief to be a person of color. At the same time, Charlottesville must drastically improve its treatment of Black leadership, he says. Since the Unite the Right rally in 2017, two Black police chiefs and two Black city managers have either resigned or been fired, and the Black mayor has decided not to seek re-election. “The person who was next in command [to Brackney] was a Black man with over 30 years of service to the community,” says Gathers, referring to Captain Tito Durrette. “Instead of giving [the position] to him, we asked Mr. Mooney to un-retire and lead the charge...that truly was a slap in the face to the Black community.” Fogel believes the city needs to do more than hire a new chief to solve its policing issues—it needs to completely overhaul the department. The new chief must recruit new officers who are committed to progressive policing, and fire everyone who is not, he says. “We have to start sweeping up that department from the bottom up,” says Fogel. “And if Chip Boyles expects somebody to come in and clean out that department without having some upset police officers, he’s got his head buried in the sand.”

“Overall, we’re going to have a hard time replacing [Brackney]—there aren’t that many police chiefs who have a progressive view of the role of police,” he adds. In the meantime, Fogel remains concerned about the department’s current leadership, and fears that officers will retaliate against local residents, pointing to the survey participants who expressed disdain for the community. “They don’t trust this community. They are making demands to trust [them], yet have not shown any reason why the community should trust them,” he says. No matter who takes charge of the department next, activist Ang Conn of Charlottesville Beyond Policing does not expect much to change. “We’re speaking about trying to reform an institution created by white men in order to inflict harm and even death, at will, upon Black and Indigenous people to benefit white property—structural and human beings—owners,” says Conn. “These same ideals and practices have been transformed over time to fit in with social norms.” “There’s no reforming that,” she adds.

Brackney had established a memorandum of understanding with the city’s public housing communities, too, in order to keep “out of control” officers in check. Local civil rights attorney Jeff Fogel supported Brackney’s efforts to eradicate the department’s outdated “warrior mentality.” He thinks Brackney shouldn’t have hesitated to alert the public of the changes she made. “I’m sorry she didn’t talk more about some of the things she had done inside of the police department that got some of these officers rattled,” says Fogel. “The community would have supported her in those endeavors, instead of being critical of her in certain other endeavors.”

Steeped in it Christina Wagner’s tea ceremonies blend tradition and transformation By Alana Bittner living@c-ville.com

UVA alum Christina Wagner says she’s drawn to tea ceremonies because of the community they create.

nections spark. She calls it steaming open the time-space continuum. When tea gatherings became jeopardized during the pandemic, and Twisted Branch shut down for months, Wagner decided to share her ceremonies through Zoom and launched the Twisted Branch Tea Club. Participants preorder the tea of the month, which can be picked up at Twisted Branch or shipped to your address. It’s recommended that the ceremony be held in a quiet space, where you can gather around your teaware,

log onto a computer, and go through the infusions along with the rest of the club. In each session, Wagner walks through the infusions and discusses the tea’s flavor notes and origins. When she began the tastings in February, she had no idea if it would take off, but a passionate group of customers coalesced, eager to jump in. “They’re really great about being inquisitive minds,” says Wagner. “Everyone brings a really different perspective, and the questions are all different angles on the same thing.”

It’s gone so well, in fact, that Wagner isn’t sure she’ll transition off Zoom. Some participants are tuning in from other states, and she doesn’t want to leave them behind. She will also continue to host Sunday Afternoon Tea, a drop-in, in-person event at IX Art Park on the last Sunday of the month. Back on the deck of Twisted Branch, five infusions and almost two hours have slipped by. As I leave, I see Wagner pick up the offering cup. She gently pours the tea into the soil of a nearby plant.

Boiling water, right? Not necessarily. Boiled water is only appropriate for herbal and black teas, whereas green teas don’t need to be brewed hotter than 175 degrees. Experiment with water temperature, and while you’re at it, play around with the amount of tea leaf you use. This is a good time to tap into your intuition!

I don’t own a gai-wan or other traditional teaware. It’s not necessary. If you’re using a mug, Wagner suggests putting loose-leaf tea into a steeping basket, so that the leaves can still move around.

Everything’s set up, I’m about to pour my first cup…what should I pay attention to? There are five components to traditional tea tasting: Observe the shape of the leaf; smell the aroma of the dry leaf, then the

wet leaf; notice the color of the infusion; and finally, taste the flavor itself. I’m hooked!

What tea should I start with? “Most people have had tea before, and have an idea of what they like or don’t like,” Wagner says. Let that be your guide. “But,” she adds, “a classic Chinese green tea can be a great place to start.” Try Dragonwell or jasmine pearls in loose leaf form.

S

itting on the back deck at the Twisted Branch Tea Bazaar, Christina Wagner carefully measures out tea leaf with her fingers. “Tea is a great place to exercise intuition,” she says. Laid out on the table before us are the elements of a Chinese gong-fu tea ceremony. There’s a metal teapot filled with hot water heated by a candle, an empty glass pitcher, and a traditional Chinese gai-wan—a tea-steeping cup with a saucer and lid. We each have a tiny tea bowl, and an offering cup sits nearby. In Mandarin, gong-fu means “with skill.” In a tea ceremony, this refers to the effort of drawing out the best possible flavor from the leaf. To do so, a gong-fu ceremony uses more vessels than your typical teapot and mug. To begin, Wagner puts the loose leaf tea (a Chinese green called Ancient Forest) into the gai-wan and covers it with hot water. After 15 seconds, she deftly picks up the gai-wan with one hand and tilts the lid back with her finger, letting the liquid strain into the glass pitcher. This is also called the fairness pitcher, since it halts the steeping process and lets everyone taste tea that’s the same strength. Wagner holds the pitcher up to the light, admiring the “clean golden color.” The first serving goes to the offering cup, as thanks. The next pour is for us. The first infusion is the time to notice the tea’s lighter, more floral tones. As we go through the infusion process four more times, the florals are replaced by a fuller mouthfeel and a strong taste of camphor emerges. We learn how one batch of tea morphs and evolves. “You would never brew it fewer than three times, because it’s disrespectful to the leaf,” says Wagner. Growing up in Madison County, tea wasn’t a large part of Wagner’s life. After graduating from UVA and moving to Portland, Oregon, she took a job at a shop called Tao of Tea. “I didn’t even know that that level of tea world existed,” says Wagner. For training, she toured warehouses, tea packing facilities, and teahouses. When she wasn’t preparing tea ceremonies for others, she was trying new teas, working her way through Tao’s extensive menu. When she returned to Charlottesville in 2015, her next career move seemed obvious—the Twisted Branch Tea Bazaar was started by a former Tao of Tea employee. Wagner says she’s drawn to tea because of the community it creates. “I would rather drink mediocre tea with good people and share that,” she says, “than use that time to source excellent tea and drink it all by myself.” She loves how once tea is served, time gets stretchy. It gives space for people to relax and open up. Deep conversations flow, con-

to explore new ways of creating innovative design while also being visually accessible to the public.” Breeding grew up in Bristol, Virginia, cultivating a love of art alongside his dad, who painted for fun. While studying at what’s now VCUArts in Richmond, Breeding kindled a passion for Swiss modernist design that continues today in his annual vacations to Switzerland. (He also loved the “Batman” TV show as a kid; getting to design those stamps in 2014 to honor the character’s 75th birthday, he says, registered an 11 on an excitement scale of 1 to 10.) The past few years haven’t been kind to the postal service, and Breeding says stamp design can only do so much to help: “While it’s true that postage stamps have high visibility to the public, the related revenue isn’t significant to the bigger issues.” But Breeding’s doing his part, both artistically and commercially. Since he started designing stamps, “I make it a part of my business life to write more postcards and notecards, especially to thank our colleagues and clients,” he says. “I have come to deeply appreciate a handwritten note.”

But you might not know it—because Breeding’s art is approximately one square inch. Breeding, president, co-founder, and product studio director for Charlottesville’s The Journey Group, designs postage stamps. Since 2013, he’s served as one of four art directors contracted to the U.S. Postal Service, honoring everything from stage magic and dragons to Jimi Hendrix and Batman. “The opportunity to design a stamp is on most every graphic designer’s bucket list,” Breeding says. “We like to say that they are ‘miniature works of art.’” Art directors supervise every aspect of a stamp’s design. Sometimes, Breeding secures image rights, selects artwork, and arranges type to create the stamp himself. For other assignments, he figures out what look the stamp needs, finds the right artist to collaborate with, and helps them create the final images. “Even when we commission artists, we are still melding the original art into the stamp format with special consideration to typography, color, cropping, and how it all comes together,” Breeding says. He and his artistic collaborators often toil on a stamp for a year or two to meet the USPS’s demanding standards. Getting artists comfortable with such a tiny canvas can be a challenge, Breeding says. But the small size, he says, “encourages us

If you prefer something a bit sweeter try our Cycle 76, an off-dry Pinot Gris, that’s easy drinking and really refreshing on hot afternoons (or evenings). It pairs well with spicy foods, fish tacos or chips and dips. And, if you love strawberries, then you’ll love our Sparkling Strawberry. It’s all strawberry and as our winemaker likes

to say, “no grapes were harmed.” Slightly sweet and like drinking a fizzy alcoholic strawberry smoothie—it’s hard to drink just one. Pair it with a burger, grilled cheese or key lime pie. All of our cans are 250 ml and available as individual cans or in 4-packs. Plan to Visit: We’re happy to once again welcome you into our air-conditioned tasting room! Seating is first come, first seated. We do not take reservations but we have ample indoor and outdoor seating. Indoors we can seat groups up to 6.

PIPPIN HILL FARM & VINEYARDS 2020 Sauvignon Blanc Made from grapes grown at the best vineyard sites in the area, this wine is a beautiful expression of what local terroir can produce. Our lovely climate means acidity remains high on these grapes, making it one of our best food wines, pairing particularly well with shellfish. With its distinctive, vivid aromas and zesty acidity, this Sauvignon Blanc is our best yet, with bright hints of pineapple and lime on the tongue and a balanced, clean finish.

A non-vintaged wine comprised of Touriga Nacionale, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon, it has a deep garnet color and the aromas of cigar and leather. Rich black cherries and spice warm the palate with a touch of tobacco and licorice. This is a great wine to enjoy with Sunday roasts, venison steaks, or while sitting around a late-night fire pit!

Plan to visit: Pippin Hill is a culinary vineyard in the heart of Virginia’s wine country. There are two types of standard reservations available: Indoor Table or Covered Veranda for table service. Walk-ins are welcome for lawn seating. Reservations via Resy are recommended for Indoor and Veranda seating.

AN ARTISTS' COLLECTIVE | LIVE ARTS' FRIENDLY FACE | THE NEW H2O?

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “When you know what’s important, it’s a lot easier to ignore what’s not,” writes author and life coach Marie Forleo. Let’s make her thought the basis of your work and play in the coming weeks. Get vibrantly clear on what is of supreme value to you, which influences bring out the best in you, and which people make it easy for you to be yourself. Then compose a second list of trivial situations that are of minor interest, influences that make you feel numb, and people who don’t fully appreciate you. Next, Virgo, formulate long-term plans to phase out the things in the second list as you increasingly emphasize your involvement in the pleasures named in the first list.

LOOK FOR OUR NEWEST ISSUE ON STANDS NOW

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct.22): Happy Birthday sometime soon, Libra! As gifts, I have collected six useful mini-oracles for you to meditate on during the rest of 2021. They’re all authored by Libran aphorist Yahia Lababidi. 1. Hope is more patient than despair and so outlasts it. 2. Miracles are proud creatures; they will not reveal themselves to those who do not believe. 3. A good listener is one who helps us overhear ourselves. 4. One definition of success might be refining our appetites, while deepening our hunger. 5. With enigmatic clarity, life gives us a different answer each time we ask her the same question. 6. Temptation: seeds we are forbidden to water, that are showered with rain.

Scorpio

September 22 – 28, 2021 c-ville.com

facebook.com/cville.weekly

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Pioneering psychologist Carl Jung wrote, “I must also have a dark side if I am to be whole.” But it’s important to add that some dark sides tend to be destructive and demoralizing, while other dark sides are fertile and interesting. Most of us have a share of each. My reading of the planetary omens suggests that you Scorpios now have extra power to upgrade your relationship with the fertile and interesting aspects of your dark side. I hope you will take advantage! You have a ripe opportunity to deepen and expand your wholeness.

Sagittarius

LOOK FOR OUR NEW ISSUE THIS OCTOBER!

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Sagittarian poet Rainer Maria Rilke was a complicated person with many mysterious emotions and convoluted thoughts. And yet, he once wrote that life occasionally brought him “boundless simplicity and joy.” I find it amazing he could ever welcome such a state. Kudos to him! How about you, dear Sagittarius? Are you capable of recognizing when boundless simplicity and joy are hovering in your vicinity, ready for you to seize them? If so, be extra alert in the next two weeks. I expect there’ll be a visitation or two. Maybe even three or four.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Baltasar Gracián was not a 21st-century New Age self-help teacher. He was a 17th-century Jesuit philosopher born under the sign of serious, diligent Capricorn.

I hope you will be extra receptive to his advice in the coming weeks. He wrote, “Know your key qualities, your outstanding gifts. Cultivate them. Redouble their use.” Among the key qualities he gave as examples were disciplined discernment and resilient courage. I bring his thoughts to your attention because the coming weeks will be a rousing time to heed his counsel. It’s time for you to identify and celebrate and give abundant expression to your key qualities.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): After studying the genes that create feathers in birds, scientists found that humans have all the necessary genes to grow feathers. (I read about it in National Geographic magazine.) So why don’t we grow feathers? Well, it’s complicated. Basically, the feather-making genes are not fully activated. Who knows? Maybe someday, there’ll be technology that enables us to switch on those genes and sprout plumage. I bet my Aquarian friend Jessie, whose body has 30 tattoos and 17 piercings, would take advantage. In the coming weeks, it might be fun for you to imagine having bird-like qualities. You’re entering a high-flying phase—a time for ascension, expansion, soaring, and seeing the big picture from lofty vantage points.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Are there sensual and erotic acts you’ve never tried and are curious about? Are there experimental approaches on the frontier of your desires that would be intriguing to consider? Might there be lusty experiences you’ve barely imagined or don’t know about—but that could be fun to play with? According to my analysis of the astrological omens, the coming weeks will be a favorable time to explore such possibilities. Be safe and prudent, of course. Don’t be irresponsible or careless. But also be willing to expand your notions of your sexuality.

Aries (March 21-April 19): Aries author Steve Maraboli says, “The best way to love someone is not to change them, but instead, help them reveal the greatest version of themselves.” If that strategy appeals to you, the next eight weeks will be an excellent time to put it to maximum use. You’re entering a phase when you can have an especially beneficial effect on people you care for. You’ll be at peak


Q&A power to help them unleash dormant potentials and access untapped resources.

What traits would you like to see in Charlottesville’s next police chief ?

Taurus (April 20-May 20): It’s a good time to ruminate about things you wish could be part of your life but aren’t. You will be wise to develop a more conscious relationship with wistful fantasies about impossible dreams. Here’s one reason why this is true: You might realize that some seemingly impossible dreams aren’t so impossible. To get in the mood for this fun exercise, meditate on a sample reverie: “I wish I could spend a whole day discovering new music to love. I wish I owned a horse and a boat and a vintage brown and orange striped bohemian cardigan sweater from the 1970s. I wish I knew the names of all the flowers. I wish I felt more at ease about revealing my hidden beauty. I wish I could figure out how to eliminate unnecessary stress from my life.”

Gemini (May 21-June 20): Poet, essayist, and translator Anne Carson calls her husband Robert Currie The Randomizer. His role in her life as a creative artist is to make quirky recommendations that help her avoid being too predictable. He sends her off in directions she wouldn’t have imagined by herself. Here’s an example: At one point in her career, Carson confessed she was bored with her writing. The Randomizer suggested, “Let’s put dancers into it.” In response, she repurposed the sonnets she had been working on into a live theatrical performance featuring many dancers. I think you would benefit from having a Randomizer in your life during the coming weeks. Know anyone who could serve? If not, look for one. Or be your own Randomizer.

I love when they’re nonexistent. The audacity it takes to hold members of the force accountable for their actions, in the face of their very public complaints when that happens.

Transparency and accountability!

I’d like to see a chief who, when she fires a bunch of trigger-happy SWAT team members, doesn’t get HER butt fired. What’s up with that?

Not only would I guarantee results, I’d also do it for free.

The best responses will run in next week’s paper. Have a question of your own you’d like to ask? Let us know.

facebook.com/cville.weekly

(July 23-Aug. 22): Celebrated novelist Jane Austen wrote, “Sometimes I have kept my feelings to myself, because I could find no language to describe them in.” People who aren’t as articulate as Austen experience that problem even more often than she did. But the good news, Leo, is that in the coming weeks, you’ll be extra skillful at expressing your feelings and thoughts—even those that in the past have been difficult to put into words. I invite you to take maximum advantage of this grace period. Communicate with hearty poise and gleeful abandon.

Maybe one who supports and defends their officers and holds them accountable while working to reform policing.

September 22 – 28, 2021 c-ville.com

(June 21-July 22): If you so desired, you could travel to Munich, Germany, and eat beer-flavored ice cream. Or you could go to Rehoboth, Delaware, and get bacon-flavored ice cream. If you were in Taiwan, you could enjoy pineapple shrimp ice cream, and if you were in London, you could sample haggis-flavored ice cream, made from sheep innards. But my advice right now is to stick with old reliables like chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry ice cream—which are still delicious even if they’re not exotic. What’s my reasoning? In general, the astrological aspects suggest that during the coming weeks, you’re most likely to thrive on trustworthy standbys and experiences you know and trust.

Virginia Orchards Ripe for the Picking BY KEN WILSON

S

o, an apple a day keeps the doctor away, as we’ve always been told, but who stops at just one? Nary an apple lover in orchardrich Central Virginia, where a Fuji mixed into oats makes a perfect breakfast, a sliced Ginger Gold naturally accompanies a lunchtime sandwich, and the sight of a Granny Smith makes a baker dream of pie. How many apples a day does it take to live to 100? Some of us around here may find out. Healthy habits, great views, and a welcome crisp in the air draw us out fruitpicking each autumn. Aren’t we lucky! We’ve been cultivating fruit here since the English first settled Jamestown. In 1629, Captain John Smith wrote that apples, peaches, apricots, and figs were “prosper[ing] exceedingly” in the Virginia Colony. By 1642 Virginia’s first governor, William Berkley, was cultivating 1,500 fruit trees; in 1694 he decreed that every planter must, “for every 500 acres granted him...enclose and fence a quarter-acre of ground near his dwelling house for orchards and gardens.” By 1800, some Virginia orchards held as many as 10,000 trees. Thomas Jefferson’s eight-acre, horseshoe-shaped Monticello “Fruitery” held 400 trees, two small vineyards, plus beds for figs and strawberries, “berry squares” for currants, gooseberries, and raspberries. America’s First Foodie grew eighteen varieties of apples alone, including the Esopus Spitzenburg, his favorite to eat, and the Taliaferro, now thought to be extinct, his favorite for cider. He also grew pumpkins for himself, his family and guests, and to feed his workhorses, cattle, sheep, and pigs. In the 21st century, agriculture is Virginia’s largest private industry, and we’re the sixth-largest apple-growing state in the country, producing an average of 5-6 million bushels each year on nearly 12,000 acres. Apples and apple products add approximately $235 million to our economy annually, and our apples are sold in 15 states and in more than 20 countries. USDA statistics for 2019 show that Virginia had 9,500 yield-bearing acres of apples, producing an estimated 190 million pounds or 20,000 pounds per acre. A bushel of apples weighs approximately 48 pounds, which translates into almost 4 million bushels. No less than 98.8 million pounds (approximately 52 percent) of Virginia apples were processed into cider, apple butter and other products. Here in Central Virginia’s many orchards, ‘tis the season for tasting, picking, and festival-going with the whole family.

Monticello Apple and Cheese Tasting Assiduous student of the science of farming that he was, Thomas Jefferson would be curious to see what Virginia produces in the 21st century. On Saturday, October 23 from 10:00 a.m. to noon, Monticello will offer the opportunity to taste and compare heirloom and conventional apples, sample cheese pairings and hard ciders, tour its Tufton

Carter Mountain Orchard and Chiles Peach Orchard Albemarle County’s Chiles family has been growing fruit here for five generations—over 100 years—first planting peach and apple trees in Crozet in 1912, and, since the 1970s, operating Carter Mountain Orchard just down the hill from Monticello. After a bad freeze in 1974 left the family with so little fruit that the usual picking and packing routine wasn’t worth its while, it ran an ad

in the newspaper, “cleaned out a tiny section of an old barn, set up a card table and a cigar box, and wondered if anyone would come.” They did. They still do. What was meant to be a one-time, emergency measure became an annual April through November, pick-your-own-fruit tradition at both the Crozet and Carter Mountain orchards. Located next to Michie Tavern, down the road from Monticello, Carter Mountain Orchard offers a 40-mile view, and grows 17 varieties of apples plus three

kinds of peaches. Picking season on the mountain starts in mid-August and runs through November; the variety of apples alone which are available at both Carter Mountain and Chiles is impressive. Albemarle Pippins and York apples are offered through November, Fuji, Gala, Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, Jonagold, Red Delicious, Rome, Stayman and Winesap through December. Ready-picked pumpkins are also available. The Thursday Evening Sunset Series on Carter Mountain features live music,

Drumheller’s Orchard Everette (E.O.) and Eva Drumheller established Drumheller’s Orchard back in 1937, planting peach and apple trees on an unattended Lovingston farm. Their son Darrell began helping in 1957, designing a 110-gallon apple butter kettle with an electric stirrer. Now in its fifth generation of running the farm, the

Vintage Virginia Apples and Albemarle Ciderworks Not far away, the Shelton clan has farmed here since 1986 when Bud and Mary Shelton bought a plot of land in North Garden, named it Rural Ridge after Rural Plains (their family seat in eastern Virginia) and built their dream house. With the help of their four children, Bud and Mary planted some 20 fruit trees— apple, pear, peach, and cherry. In 1992, inspired by Monticello’s heirloom apple tastings conducted by the late author and apple historian Tom Burford, the Sheltons purchased trees from Burford’s orchard. Today they have more than 200 cultivars, including the Esopus Spitzenburg and other enticingly named rarities like the Belle De Boskoop, the Bleinheim Orange (dessert apples), the Dolgo Crab (originally Siberian, and excellent for jellies) and the Spice of Old Virginia (richly aromatic and perfect for apple butter). The Sheltons have collected about three dozen peach varieties, plus plums, pears, cherries, nectarines and apricots, and they sell over 100 varieties of vintage fruit trees, many of them virtually unobtainable anywhere else. In 2000 the family founded Vintage Virginia Apples, and in 2009, opened Albemarle CiderWorks. They are open daily from 11:00 a.m.to 5:00 p.m. and currently have 13 cider varieties available for tasting and sale. As

Seamans’ and Silver Creek Orchards have held Apple Butter Makin’ Festivals together on the first and third Saturdays in October for 30+ years, making apple butter the old-fashioned way in large copper kettles. This year’s fests fall on October 2 and 16 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Pumpkin pickers are welcome, and the corn maze will be . . . easy to enter. Apple lovers can choose among Rome, Fuji, Granny Smith, Arkansas Black, Black Twig, Winesap, and Pippin varieties. Pink Lady, Gold Rush, Sweet Cheeks, and Lady Apples will be for sale beginning on October 24.

Arkansas Black and Pink Lady apples are available a little later in the season. Along with apples, attendees will find apple butter and cider, honey, side meat, country hams, cookbooks, pumpkins, baskets, and baked goods. The Drumhellers serve their cider non-pasteurized, with no additives or preservatives, and they make their apple butter—apples, sugar, and spices—from the same recipe they’ve used for generations. Their side meat and country hams are cured in southern Virginia. Activities will include hayrides to the pumpkin patch and corn maze, an apple sling shot, and kids zone. The corn maze will be open, weather permitting; good food and country music are certain. The Ruritan Club will sell BBQ chicken and sandwiches, plus hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, and drinks. Other vendors will offer funnel cakes, pork skins, apple dumplings, and Brunswick stew. Regular hours at Drumhellers are Tuesdays through Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 5:00 p.m. Apples are nutritious and delicious 24/7. How many can you eat?
