THIS WEEK Hello, Charlottesville! I’m back for my second week as editor of C-VILLE Weekly (I promise I’ll stop counting after this one). This week’s cover story is a first-person narrative by Jesse Crosson, a man released from prison last year, as he welcomes his friend Grahm to a new life “on the other side of the fence.” This personal story is connected to the Earned Sentence Credit rollback that Governor Youngkin enacted with Budget Amendment 19 in June, which has affected the early release of thousands in Virginia Correctional facilities. Before I began working here, C-VILLE dug at some important stories about people incarcerated in the commonwealth. In particular, the paper covered the unhygienic conditions and poor COVID-19 management at the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail, as identified by inmates writing to the Democratic Socialists of America. I hope that this week’s feature continues that journalistic tradition of shining a light on the lives of those who live in Virginia’s prisons. In other news this week, Brielle Entzminger reports on the cancellation of the Police Civilian Oversight Board’s first hearing. This concerns an incident that C-VILLE reported on in 2020, about a Charlottesville police officer pinning down a man experiencing homelessness on the Downtown Mall. In culture, we’ve got opera, wine, and a walking, talking sea shell. I’ve always felt those things go together splendidly. As for myself, I continue to explore the breadth of bars and eateries across the city. What am I looking for? I suppose I’ll know when I find it. Until then!—Richard DiCicco

No more quarantine

The City of Charlottesville has hired D.C. executive search firm POLIHIRE Strategy Corporation to find its next police chief. POLIHIRE—which Fairfax County hired for its police chief search last year—will assist interim city manager Michael Rogers with recruitment, interviews, and other aspects of the selection process. The firm’s base contract award is $35,000, plus additional services the city can add, reports the Daily Progress.

George Swingler opened Rose Hill Market 33 years ago, in 1989. At the end of this month, Swingler will close down his business.

“I’ve had a lot of customers come in, and they’d become friends over the years and come in just to say ‘hi’ to me,” he says.

Albemarle County euthanizes long-sequestered pit bull An eight-year battle over the fate of a pit bull named Niko ended on July 14, when Albemarle County animal control seized the dog from the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA and euthanized him. “I don’t know what hearing or information they used to weigh this decision,” says Elliott Harding, the attorney who has represented Niko’s former owner in her efforts to save the dog’s life. Harding says he had identified numerous alternatives to euthanasia, including placement at pit bull sanctuaries both in-state and out-of-state and had asked the county for information to assist that search. “We never heard back.” Niko had been held at the CharlottesvilleAlbemarle SPCA since 2014, after he killed a neighbor’s cat and the court ruled him

a “dangerous dog.” According to a county press release, Niko had previously injured two other dogs, once in 2013 and once in 2014, and had escaped an SPCA handler in 2016 to injure a third dog at the shelter. Harding, however, says he has found no information about the 2013 incident. County spokesperson Emily Kilroy says county leadership considered other options available under the law but decided on euthanasia after a final court hearing this spring in the interest of “community safety.” In a statement, the SPCA, a no-kill shelter, said it opposed the county’s decision to euthanize Niko and played no role in the euthanasia. “Niko will be greatly missed by staff and volunteers at the SPCA,” the statement reads.

fter 33 years in business, George Swingler will be closing down Rose Hill Market. The former Albemarle County police officer first opened up the store in 1989. The idea came to him while having a casual conversation with a friend about how he would keep himself busy after retiring. A week later, he decided to seriously pursue becoming a store owner. Today, the community can’t imagine life without the market, which has a perfect 5-star rating on Google. Swingler notes that the store’s location is convenient for many Charlottesville residents: it is only a mile away from both The Corner and The Downtown Mall. But at the end of this month, the beloved Rose Hill Market’s doors will close. Swingler now plans to focus his energy on his other hobby: gardening. “I like taking care of my property,” he says. “My neighbor is a senior citizen, so I try to take care of her yard as well.” He also looks forward to spending more time with his grandchildren. Reflecting on his many years running the shop, Swingler says he particularly enjoyed decorating the store around Christmastime and having regular customers come in. “I’ve had a lot of customers come in, and they’d become friends over the years and come in just to say ‘hi’ to me,” he says.

Unvaccinated children enrolled in school, day care, or camp who have been exposed to the coronavirus—but are asymptomatic— are no longer required to quarantine, according to guidance issued by Gov. Glenn Youngkin last week. The guidance also no longer recommends mask wearing in those settings. However, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends unvaccinated individuals quarantine for five days after being exposed to the virus, and all people wear masks in areas of high transmission. The City of Charlottesville currently has a high transmission level, while Albemarle County has a medium level.

A now-deleted Instagram video shows an unnamed CPD officer putting Gonzalez in a headlock.

drunk people at downtown bars are not arrested for being intoxicated in public—but people experiencing homelessness are treated differently. “According to the police department and the law, you can’t arrest somebody for [being] drunk in public, unless they are a danger to themselves and others,” says Fogel. “Let’s say he was a danger. … If you just do this off the Downtown Mall or anywhere else, it’s okay. We can’t have two laws—one on the Downtown Mall and one everywhere else. If he was a danger to himself or others, he shouldn’t have been allowed to go anywhere in the city.” During the alternative dispute resolution, Fogel wants the department to address these legal issues—in addition to the allegations of excessive force and biased policing—and provide clarity “on this question of why we treat people differently depending on whether they’re on the mall, or somewhere else in the city,” he says. He also wants the department to publicly release a video of Gonzalez’s arrest that

was taken by a woman standing at a nearby cafe. He says he was told by Lt. Michael Gore that the internal affairs department used this video to make its determination. If the case returns to the board for a hearing, Fogel believes members Bellamy Brown and Jeffrey Fracher would be biased against him. He claims Brown “berated” him over the phone once after Fogel criticized him during a COB meeting, and tried to convince one of his clients to fire him. “The last thing that Bellamy said was, ‘This ain’t the end of this,’” adds Fogel. “It’s obvious that he’s got a bunch of hostility towards me.” In text message exchanges revealed through a Freedom of Information Act request by activist Ang Conn earlier this year, Brown and Fracher also expressed their disdain for local activists, as well as then-mayor Nikuyah Walker, former CPD chief RaShall Brackney, and COB members Bill Mendez and Nancy Carpenter. In a letter to Aguilar and at the board’s pre-hearing conference, Fogel asked Brown and Fracher to recuse themselves from the hearing, accusing them of being hostile towards him. (Member Nancy Carpenter recused herself due to conversations she’s had with Fogel about the criminalization of homelessness, while new member Dashad Cooper recused himself due to his unfamiliarity with the board’s procedures.) Brown did not publicly respond to Fogel, but Fracher adamantly denied the allegations during the conference. “I don’t know the man, I’ve never spoken to him, I’ve never seen him face to face. In my 40 years as a forensic psychologist, I’ve been an expert witness in hundreds of trials, with lawyers I like [and] dislike—there was never a question of bias [or] my integrity,” said Fracher. “You need not worry about what you’ve imagined to be this conspiracy of bias against you—it doesn’t exist.”

“I don’t frankly have a lot of confidence in the people holding power on the [COB].” JEFF FOGEL, LOCAL ATTORNEY

July 20 – 26, 2022 c-ville.com

or more than two years, Charlottesville’s Police Civilian Oversight Board has been embroiled in internal disputes over its ordinance and procedures, preventing its appointed members from doing their main job—reviewing the Charlottesville Police Department’s internal investigations. Last Thursday, the board was scheduled to hold its long-awaited first hearing concerning the violent arrest of a man experiencing homelessness in 2020. However, the morning of the hearing, complainant Jeff Fogel, a local attorney, and the CPD agreed to an alternative dispute resolution, putting the hearing on hold until further notice. During a pre-hearing conference held last Monday, Fogel stated he would be open to speaking with the department directly about the controversial case, which acting CPD chief Tito Durrette later agreed to, explained board executive director Hansel Aguilar during the now-postponed hearing. Hearing examiner Cecil Creasey, a private attorney and administrative hearing officer for the Virginia Supreme Court, will facilitate the informal resolution on or around July 28. If the parties do not reach an agreement, the case will return to the board for a hearing. “I don’t frankly have a lot of confidence in the people holding power on the [COB],” says Fogel. “I think it would be better to solve it directly with the police department. … If it took two years to hold the [COB] hearing, God knows how long it’s going to take to make a decision.” Fogel believes the case at hand is an example of the unjust criminalization of people experiencing homelessness, particularly on the Downtown Mall. On July 8, 2020, someone called 911 after seeing 36-year-old Christopher Gonzalez lying down on the ground near CVS.

A Charlottesville police officer soon arrived, followed by a rescue squad. Gonzalez admitted to drinking “a little bit” of alcohol, and said that he was homeless. Since Gonzalez declined a medical evaluation, the officer—whose name the department has refused to disclose to the public—dismissed the paramedics, but threatened to arrest Gonzalez unless he left the mall. Gonzalez replied that he wanted to “stay living” there, and refused to leave, according to the officer’s body camera footage. “Then I’m going to take you to jail for drunk in public,” the officer responded. “Well let’s go then,” Gonzalez replied. “I don’t see why I have to go.” The officer tried to handcuff Gonzalez, but he pulled away and cursed at the officer. In response, the officer pinned Gonzalez to the ground, causing his body camera to fall off. A now-deleted Instagram video showed the officer putting Gonzalez in a headlock for nearly a minute, C-VILLE reported in 2020. Gonzalez was charged with assault of a police officer—a felony—as well as misdemeanor public intoxication and obstruction of justice. He was held without bail for almost three weeks at the local jail, says Fogel. Those charges were later dismissed. Due to the pandemic, “[the jail] wouldn’t let anybody out if they didn’t have housing, so a number of us got involved in getting him a place to stay,” says Fogel. “But there was no reason for him to spend that time in jail.” After seeing the Instagram video, Fogel sent it to CPD’s internal affairs department, who then launched an investigation. In September 2020, the department exonerated the allegations of excessive force, and concluded that the allegations of bias-based policing were unfounded. However, Fogel believes Gonzalez should have never been arrested or charged with a crime in the first place. He emphasizes that

Rules of law

@cville_weekly facebook.com/cville.weekly

In 2020, Gov. Ralph Northam signed HB 5148, which expanded the Earned Sentence Credit program for people in Virginia prisons. Scheduled to go into effect July 1, 2022, the law raised the previous cap of 4.5 days per month to 15 days per month that could be earned and credited toward sentences for nonviolent offenses. However, Virginia’s new two-year state budget, passed this June, included an amendment by Gov. Glenn Youngkin that restricted how many people would be eligible for early release. The amendment also disqualifies people with “mixed sentences”—those who have both violent and nonviolent charges—from gaining access to the expanded 15-day credit. The law previously allowed them to earn 15 days a month off the lesser sentence, and the standard 4.5 days off the other. Now, someone with a 20-year sentence for drug charges and one year for robbery would not be eligible for the expanded credit on either.

nities. Even with those benefits, far more than most people have, the shock and emotional adjustment of leaving long-term incarceration has been more difficult than I imagined. Grahm’s daughter ran to him when the gate opened. His mother gasped. I felt tears on my face. After minutes of hugging, I gave Grahm a Honey Bun as a joke—they’re extremely popular in prison—and said I wanted him to feel at home out here. That levity in the midst of tears helped lighten the mood as we drove away, heading to his first breakfast as a newly free man. When the waitress at the tiny café asked for his order, Grahm froze. I remember feeling paralyzed in the face of choice, too. Looking at menus or trying to pick out a product in the store was overwhelming. He’ll face many such moments, many unexpected shocks and challenges as he reacclimates to the world. That afternoon we took him to a lake, and he swam for the first time in his daughter’s life. In the water, he and I talked and absorbed the surreal moment. “Are we really here?” he kept asking. “Is this real?” He looked like a lost child. I remember that feeling, when I was the one struggling to believe I actually made it to the other side of the fence. I am grateful for the opportunity to be here for him. Far too many people will get out of prison to meet family and friends who don’t know what that experience is like. We need to show up for them, too.

e rolled down a bumpy and winding road, just 45 minutes south of Charlottesville. My heart was racing. My breath was shallow. The last time I had been down this road, I had shackles on my wrists and ankles. As we rounded a final curve, the tree cover pulled back to reveal a low-slung concrete fortress surrounded by layers of fences and topped with shining razor wire. The guard towers cast looming shadows across the industrial building as a semi-truck lumbered toward the rear gate. We parked near the sally port at the back of the compound, and as I got out of the van, a guard near the fence yelled, “Hey, Crosson, what the fuck are you doing here?” I was back at Buckingham Correctional Center, where I spent 13 of 19 years in the Virginia Department of Corrections for crimes I committed just after my 18th birthday. It is a place of mixed memories and emotions. I grew and matured there, became my best self. I also witnessed violence and a casual disregard for humanity by both prisoners and staff. On August 16, 2021, with an hour-anda-half of notice, I was released from prison after my petition for clemency was granted by then-governor Ralph Northam. Now, less than eleven months after walking out—following nearly two decades of incarceration—I was back to pick up my friend Grahm Masters. He is one of the thousands who became eligible for early release through the expanded Earned Sentence Credit program that went into effect July 1. I first met Grahm during the 2008 soccer finals at Buckingham. The best soccer, softball, and basketball players championed the two sides of the prison in a competition for nothing more than bragging rights, but it felt absolutely epic. Grahm noticed one of my bad prison tattoos and asked if I had ever skateboarded. From there, we talked and laughed, despite being on opposing teams. Soon after, we saw each other in passing, or through the fence that separated the two sides. Later, we worked on the same maintenance crew, and I got to know him much better. Eventually, I was moved to the honor pod on his side of the yard. The day I received my diploma from Ohio University was the same day he graduated from an electrical apprenticeship. We attended the ceremony together, with both of our families present for one of the best days I spent behind bars. Grahm’s devotion to his daughter always struck me. She was born after he was arrested, so their relationship had only ever existed within the context of prison. He would write her letters, draw her pictures, give her homework assignments, and find every way possible to be a presence in her life. They are both talented artists and bond-

ed over sharing their work—until the prison mail policy was changed and he could only get black-and-white copies of the handdrawn pictures she sent. She stopped sending him her latest pieces shortly after. Now, I was returning with his family to pick him up. It would be his first time seeing his daughter outside of a prison visitation room. Grahm had been sentenced to more than 20 years for nonviolent property crimes. In 2020, the General Assembly passed the bipartisan House Bill 5148, which allowed for expanded access to Earned Sentence Credits (often called “good time”) for nonviolent charges. Proponents of the bill, myself included, saw the powerful incentive it represented when it passed during the special session in 2020. At the time, the Virginia Department of Corrections asked for implementation to be delayed by two years to allow time to shore up reentry programs and calculate new release dates. But those release dates had to be recalculated again, with only days of notice, after Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s Budget Amendment 19 stripped eligibility from about 8,000 people. Nearly 1,000 of them had been told they would be released between July and September. The day before Father’s Day, they and their families learned they were no longer eligible. Grahm was made eligible for early release thanks to his diligence. In addition to completing the electrical apprenticeship, he enrolled in college classes and stayed infraction free, all of which allowed him to earn the highest level of good time. HB 5148 required prisoners to work, pursue education, and avoid behavioral infractions to earn more good time. It originally applied to all nonviolent charges. Over the last two years, there were many attempts to repeal and limit its scope; every one of them failed in session. But with an amendment, Youngkin used the budget to legislate, and both the House and Senate allowed him to do it. The law was a promise to people that if they did the work, got an education, stayed out of trouble, and walked the right path, they would be eligible for expanded good time. This wasn’t an abstract thing. It was the difference between weeks, months, or years. It meant attending or missing graduations, weddings, and funerals. For the state, it represented money saved by shortening the period of costly incarceration, and money gained by returning citizens’ employment and spending. It’s not as if the amendment permanently stopped the release of those who are no longer eligible. They are still getting out, just not when they were told they would be. When they do get out, they’ll likely be even more skeptical and mistrustful of a system that promised them one thing and then quickly reneged. As I stood in the parking lot with Grahm’s family, he made his way out the gate holding

n the winter of 2019, Dr. Caroline Worra was in Hong Kong playing the role of wealthy widow Hanna Glawari, opposite Richard Troxell as her ex-lover Count Danilo, in a performance of Franz Lehár’s 1905 operetta The Merry Widow. Three years and 8,000 miles later, Worra and Troxell are preparing to reprise their roles with the Charlottesville Opera. Accompanied by a cast of 127 people who have traveled from all corners of the United States, the group will perform two shows in Charlottesville, a city Troxell says talks opera “like New Yorkers talk baseball.” “A lot of times when you’re in New York, at The Met, a lot of people who are going to see that opera are going to impress everybody else,” says Troxell. “In smaller towns, especially, I’ve noticed, in the South, people go because they love the opera.” The Merry Widow is the story of Hanna, who has suitors vying for her fortune, and Count Danilo, her true love who is too proud to marry her for money. Drama, intrigue, and comical misunderstandings ensue. “I think on the surface, the operetta can be ridiculous, as if it doesn’t fit in this time period,” says Troxell. “But if you go to the ‘true love’ part of it, we all do really ridiculous and stupid things for true love.” A few aspects of The Merry Widow make it what director Stephanie Havey describes as “a great first opera.” It is an operetta, which moves along at a pace similar to a modern musical and relies heavily on spoken dialogue. It also features plenty of toe-tapping music, including a catchy crowd-pleaser in “The Merry Widow Waltz.” The production’s original German lyrics have been translated to English. Combined with English supertitles above the stage, newbies can laugh along with the slapstick humor as bumbling side characters attempt to figure out who will win Hanna’s money. “Especially for comedy, it’s nice to be in English, because then the audience is hearing the funny things right away instead of reading ahead,” Worra says. “It’s always a little strange when you haven’t said the punchline yet, and they’ve already started laughing.” Like most things written by men over a century ago, The Merry Widow does not always lift its female characters. At one point, a number about how difficult it is to understand women escalates into a celebratory kickline. But these over-the-top moments fade into silliness behind the heartfelt love story, Havey says, allowing the operetta to resonate with a 21st-century audience. “It’s pointing out the misogyny that would have existed in that time, and it’s making fun of it,” Havey explains. “In the end, Hanna really is the smartest character on stage,

The Merry Widow will take the Paramount stage for two shows on July 22 and July 24. More info can be found at charlottesvilleopera.org.

“In smaller towns, especially, I’ve noticed, in the South, people go because they love the opera.” RICHARD TROXELL

and she has complete autonomy. She chooses her future. She chooses the man that she wants to marry for love.” In order to connect the audience with the operetta’s tongue-in-cheek humor, Havey works with the merry widow herself. Worra serves as both the show’s lead and the artistic director of the opera company, overlapping roles at times distinguished only by whether or not she’s wearing her artistic director name tag. These intersecting roles offer Havey the rare opportunity to work alongside an artistic director with an insider’s perspective. “Being a singer, performer, and artistic director, you’re able to see all of it,” Troxell says. “She’s been doing this for a long time, and she knows how it all could work, and should work, and does a better job of it than some people who have only worn one hat the whole time.”

In 2021, Charlottesville Opera broke from operatic tradition when it performed the first-ever theatrical production at the Ting Pavilion. Because of the space their voices needed to fill, the singers were fitted with microphones, an audio aid almost never used in opera. The boom of La Bohème from enormous speakers on the Downtown Mall gave the most visibility to opera Charlottesville had ever seen. “We had a lot of first-time operagoers come to the Ting Pavilion, because you could just be walking around right in town and hear it,” Havey says. “We had 100 people standing at the back wall, which was great, we love that.” The opera capitalized on this visibility, and its return to The Paramount Theater, by beginning its 2022 season with The Sound of Music. The program drew in Charlottesville families and children, many of whom had never experienced opera before. Worra hopes they join Downtown Mall passersby in returning for The Merry Widow. “To actually see an opera live, there’s something that’s just so special about that,” Worra says. “To hear the powerful voices that are not amplified, carrying over and touching these people in the audience. It touches them right in the heart.”

risp. Refreshing. Bright. Glouglou. Quaffable. These are the words you want associated with the wines you drink in the summer. It’s no surprise that full-bodied, high alcohol, heavily tannic wines are put aside when the temperature and humidity are on the rise. Here are five kinds of wine to chill out with this summer:

Sparkling

Bubbles are always a welcome and festive addition to any gathering. Sparkling wines are generally made in a crisp style with high acidity, providing a refreshing beverage that is a versatile pairing with many of the foods associated with summer. Sparkling wine can match a range of flavors, from citrus and seafood to fried chicken and barbecue. For a bit of a twist, try the 2020 Morris from Patois Cider ($24/750ml). While this is made from apples, the technique is the same as that which is used to produce Champagne. Plus, the flavors of grapefruit, a hint of green melon, and a bit of salinity make this an amazing match with oysters or shellfish.

Crisp (specifically albariño)

There are many varieties that fit this category, but one that is still a bit of a novelty in Virginia is albariño. Hailing originally from Portugal and Spain, this white grape is finding great success locally, and produces a light-bodied, high acid, low alcohol wine with floral, citrus, and some tropical fruit

characteristics. It is a perfect wine on its own, but also a perfect pairing for oysters, lobster, citrus salad, sushi, or fish tacos. Recent vintages from Blenheim Vineyards ($23), Afton Mountain Vineyards ($28), and 53rd Winery and Vineyard ($25) are all beautiful, refreshing examples with classic characteristics of albariño. It’s worth trying them all.

Rosé, hey hey

Rosé can be made from many varieties, in various styles and weights, and with different intensities of color. But, for many, the vision of a pale pink glass of wine by the beach or the shore is the epitome of summer. Good examples will not only provide color, but more berry flavors and palate texture than a white. This allows pairing with slightly heartier foods such as pasta, chicken, or a lean pork dish. Crozet-based King Family Vineyards’ Crosé rosé ($25 a bottle or 3-pack of cans) continues to be probably the best-known and best-selling local pink wine. Credit both the extremely clever name and great taste of this merlot-based wine. Flavors of watermelon and lime predominate with floral and herbal characters in the background. Also highly recommended are the very approachable 2020 LVA Rosé from Keswick Vineyards ($22) and the unique and flavorful 2021 Rosé of Tannat from Stinson Vineyards ($23).

Chilly red

There are certainly still occasions to drink red wine when the weather is warm, but the key is to look for a light-bodied red with a minimal amount of tannic structure. Widely called “glou-glou” (a phrase that the French favor because it mimics the sound of wine being rapidly poured or rapidly consumed), these wines are often designed

to be at their best with a slight chill, and they’re meant to go down easy with pork ribs, brisket, and cherry pie. A great example of a wine that’s made to be chilled is the 2021 Soif from Early Mountain Vineyards ($27). The word “soif,” which is French for “thirst,” implies that this wine was made to go down easy, and also hints at the evocative “glou-glou.” Also recommended, the 2020 Noiret from Quartzwood Farm ($26), a gently sparkling wine deep in color (due to the grape), but light in flavor and weight, available in several local shops.

Canned?

Canned wines are slightly controversial in the world of fine wine. Without going too far down the science rabbit hole, suffice it to say that cans are not completely inert and may interact chemically with wine. However, if both winemaker and consumer understand that canned wines are a different beast, made for quick sale and quick consumption, they can be a great option for a day by the pool, at a campground, or in your cooler while floating down the river. The lack of weight, the lack of glass, the fact that you don’t need a corkscrew, and the ability to get the wine very cold very fast makes canned wine a “can-do!” As mentioned, King Family Vineyards’ Crosé is available in cans. Muse Vineyards in nearby Woodstock has gone all in with four different canned wine offerings. The Erato white blend ($27/four cans) is the lightest and leanest option, the 2021 rosé ($26/four cans) is a low-alcohol rosé of cabernet franc, the Pichet red blend ($27/four cans) is made in the light, refreshing red wine style that is best served chilled, and the 2021 Gamay ($30/four cans) is a more traditional offering of a lighter-bodied red grape variety.

Marcel the Shell with Shoes On is an endearing winner

The one-eyed YouTube sensation Marcel the Shell wins on the big screen with a heartfelt story voiced by Jenny Slate (Marcel) and Isabella Rossellini (Connie).

By Justin Humphreys arts@c-ville.com

among other diverse topics, the best and worst aspects of technology—in particular, social media. As Marcel’s online popularity grows, he disgustedly discovers the difference between “an audience” and “a community.” He is eventually confronted with other, more profound concerns, and the film confronts these life lessons with care, grace, and dignity. It’s hard to criticize such an inventive movie, but Marcel the Shell could have easily been shorter, and it slips into preciousness, at times. Those quibbles aside, within its fanciful framework, it’s frequently

PG, 89 minutes Violet Crown Cinema

Marcel the Shell is made doubly appealing by its handmade stopmotion animation, which is a relief from the slick, homogenized CGI cartoons that have overtaken the artform.

hilarious and, at times, genuinely poignant. It’s virtually devoid of dreary jaded­ ness, and it has a winning protagonist who’s worth rooting for. To accomplish all that with a main character that’s basically a conglomeration of random bits and pieces culled from a craft store’s cutout bin is an exceptional achievement. Marcel the Shell with Shoes On is a lovely film, and well worth seeing.

udging by its trailer, Dean FleischerCamp’s Marcel the Shell with Shoes On might come off as utterly silly—and in parts, it very enjoyably is. But, ironically, its hero, a charmingly ridiculous one-eyed shell with feet, ranks among the single most human movie characters of 2022. This substantial little tale of survival, loyalty, and courage is excellent family fare that won’t insult adults’ intelligence or bore them. Marcel the Shell (voiced by actress and co-screenwriter Jenny Slate) originated as a solo character in Fleischer-Camp’s online stop-motion shorts, and this part-animated, part-live-action feature explores the roots of Marcel’s seeming uniqueness. FleischerCamp plays his own alter ego, filmmaker Dave, who inadvertently discovers Marcel and his grandmother, Connie (the voice of Isabella Rossellini), living covertly in an Airbnb he’s rented. The Shells’ family and others like them vanished when the house’s previous occupants broke up. Dave films a documentary around Marcel’s day-to-day life, which mainly centers on the Rube Goldberg-like inventions Marcel has built to harness his gigantic, potentially hostile surroundings. As Dave’s videos make Marcel a YouTube sensation, Marcel

sets out to find his kin. The improbable story plays like a combination of The Incredible Shrinking Man, David Holzman’s Diary, and Charlotte’s Web. Marcel the Shell is made doubly appealing by its handmade stop-motion animation, which is a relief from the slick, homogenized CGI cartoons that have overtaken the artform. The film’s crew—particularly animation director Kirsten Lepore, supervising animation director Stephen Chiodo, and their team— deserves praise. The seeming simplicity of Marcel scuttling through his daily routine has a lovable DIY quality that enhances the story’s humanity, thanks to the animators’ meticulous, time-consuming labors. With their very fine voice acting, Slate and Rossellini are the film’s backbone, truly imbuing their characters with life. That Marcel the Shell sprang from a small creative team is vividly apparent. Slate, FleischerCamp, and co-writers Nick Paley and Elisabeth Holm bring far more imagination and personality to this modest project than any of the committee-made cartoon spectacles playing alongside it in theaters. The film’s easygoing pace and lack of explosions and mayhem are also a treat. These virtues serve as reminders of so many things that popular animation has lost. For parents, Marcel the Shell also opens a rich line of discussion with kids about,

What’s your go-to summer treat? Kohr’s custard vanilla and orange cone. @SHARON_SALZ/INSTAGRAM

By Rob Brezsny

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): A Leo astrologer I’ve known for years told me, “Here’s a secret about us Lions. No matter what happens, despite any pitfalls and pratfalls, my ego will stay intact. It ain’t gonna crack. You can hurl five lightning bolts’ worth of insults at my skull, and I will walk away without even a hint of a concussion. I believe in myself and worship myself, but even more importantly: I trust my own self-coherence like I trust the sun to shine.” Wow! That’s quite a testimony. I’m not sure I fully buy it, though. I have known a few Leos whose confidence wavered in the wake of a minor misstep. But here’s the point of my horoscope: I encourage you to allow a slight ego deflation in the coming days. If you do, I believe it will generate a major blossoming of your ego by August. And that would be a very good thing.

Virgo

frain from revealing your skill at reading between the lines. But none of that avoidance stuff usually works very well. The real you leaks out into view. In the coming weeks, I hope you won’t engage in any of the hiding behavior I described. It’s a favorable time to freely pour forth your Scorpionic blessings.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): There could be interesting and important events happening while you sleep in the coming nights. If a butterfly lands on you in a dream, it may mean you’re prepping for a spiritual transformation in waking life. It could be a sign you’re receptive to a breakthrough insight you weren’t previously open to. If you dream of a baby animal, it might signify you’re ready to welcome a rebirth of a part of you that has been dormant or sluggish or unavailable. Dreams in which you’re flying suggest you may soon escape a sense of heaviness or inertia.

Capricorn

Libra

Aquarius

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): There is a distinction between being nice and being kind. Being nice is often motivated by mechanical politeness, by a habit-bound drive to appear pleasant. It may be rooted more in a desire to be liked than in an authentic urge to bestow blessings. On the other hand, being kind is a sincere expression of care and concern for another. It fosters genuine intimacy. I bring these thoughts to your attention because I think that one of Libra’s life-long tasks is to master the art of being kind rather than merely nice. And right now is an especially favorable phase for you to refine your practice.

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In the next seven to eight weeks, I’d love for you to embody an attitude about intimacy articulated by author Hélène Cixous. Here’s her aspiration: “I want to love a person freely, including all her secrets. I want to love in this person someone she doesn’t know. I want to love without judgment, without fault. Without false, without true. I want to meet her between the words, beneath language.” And yes, dear Aquarius, I know this is a monumental undertaking. If it appeals to you at all, just do the best you can to incorporate it. Perfection isn’t required.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You sometimes feel you have to tone down your smoldering intensity, avert your dark-star gazes, conceal your sultry charisma, dumb down your persuasive speech, pretend you don’t have so much stamina, disguise your awareness of supernatural connections, act less like a saint and martyr in your zealous devotions, and re-

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): I periodically consult a doctor of Chinese medicine who tells me that one of the best things I can do for my health is to walk barefoot—everywhere! On the sidewalk, through buildings, and especially in the woods and natural areas. He says that being in direct contact with our beloved earth can provide me with energetic nourishment not possible any other way. I have resisted the

(March 21-April 19): You are entering the Season of Love’s Renewal. To celebrate, I offer you a poem by eighth-century Tamil poet Andal. Whatever gender you may be, I invite you to visualize yourself as the “Snakewaist woman” she addresses. Here’s Andal, bringing a fiery splash of exclamation points: “Arouse, Snakewaist woman! Strut your enchantment! Swoop your mirth and leap your spiral reverence! As wild peacocks shimmer and ramble and entice the lightning-nerved air! Summon thunderheads of your love! Command the sentient wind! Resurrect the flavor of eternal birth!”

Taurus (April 20-May 20): Tips to get the most out of the next three weeks: 1. Work harder, last longer, and finish with more grace than everyone else. 2. Be in love with beauty. Crave it, surround yourself with it, and create it. Be especially enamored of beautiful things that are also useful. 3. Taste the mist, smell the clouds, kiss the music, praise the earth, and listen to the moon in the daytime sky. 4. Never stop building! Keep building and building and building: your joy, your security, your love, your beauty, your stamina, your sense of wonder.

Gemini (May 21-June 20): Gemini astrologer Astrolocherry says that while Geminis “can appear naive and air-headed to onlookers, their minds usually operate at light speed. They naturally absorb every surrounding particle of intellectual stimuli. They constantly observe their interactions for opportunities to grow their knowledge.” I believe these qualities will function at peak intensity during the next four weeks, Gemini—maybe even beyond peak intensity. Please try to enjoy the hell out of this phase without becoming manic or overwrought. If all goes well, you could learn more in the next four weeks than most people learn in four months.

(Dec. 22-Jan.19): How to be the best Capricorn you can be in the coming weeks and months: 1. Develop a disciplined, wellplanned strategy to achieve more freedom. 2. Keep clambering upwards even if you have no competitors and there’s no one else at the top. 3. Loosen your firm grasp and steely resolve just enough so you can allow the world to enjoy you. 4. Don’t let the people you love ever think you take them for granted. 5. Be younger today than you were yesterday.

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Virgo poet Claude de Burine described how one night when she was three years old, she sneaked out of the house with her parents’ champagne bucket so she could fill it up with moonlight. I think activities like this will be a worthy pursuit for you in the coming days. You’re entering a favorable phase to go in quest of lyrical, fanciful experiences. I hope you will make yourself available for marvels and curiosities and fun surprises.

doc’s advice so far. It would take the soles of my feet a while to get accustomed to the wear and tear of barefoot walking. I bring this up, Pisces, because the coming weeks will be an excellent time for you to try what I haven’t yet. In fact, anything you do to deepen your connection with the earth will be extra healing. I invite you to lie in the sand, hug trees, converse with birds, shout prayers to mountains, and bathe in rivers or lakes.

Fluvanna County: CLOSE IN, RURAL & BUSINESS FRIENDLY BY CARLA HUCKABEE

THE REAL ESTATE WEEKLY WWW.C-VILLE.COM

A

ndrea Nickels and her husband, Rob, were both entrenched in the deep corporate grind of the Baltimore/Washington metropolis. When COVID hit, though, they did a full stop and took stock. “As empty nesters with four grown children, we agreed it was time to consider the next chapter of our lives,” said Nickels. “We’d been casually looking at land for long-term retirement consideration for a while.” But COVID accelerated everything. On a day trip from their home in Maryland to Fluvanna County, they fell in love all over again. This time with a winery that was for sale near Scottsville. Unfortunately, it was already under contract. But Nickels says, “That property became the measuring stick for everything we looked at over the next six months.” Its location along the Hardware River just a few miles from the James River was the

trump card that no other site could beat. The Nickels aren’t the only ones who look at Fluvanna County and see great potential. The county attracts wouldbe residents of all stripes who love the outdoorsy, rural (but business-friendly) environment that describes life here. Fluvanna—or Anne’s River—was named after Queen Anne of England. And the Queen would be pleased to see what has become of her namesake in the two and a half centuries since it was carved out of Albemarle County.

Best of Both Worlds A 15-mile drive to the northwest lands you in Charlottesville. It’s 62 miles east to Richmond, and 117 miles north to Washington. And right in the center, Fluvanna County remains mostly rural. Bordered by the James River to the south, Interstate 64 to the north, and dissected by U.S. Route 15, getting to, from and around the county is easy.

Jennifer Schmack is the Director of Economic Development for Fluvanna County and moved from congested Hampton Roads three years ago. “Fluvanna County is great,” she says. “It’s the best of both worlds, still mostly rural and just outside of the urban rings for

Charlottesville and Richmond.” And residents want to keep it that way. The county has begun its comprehensive plan update and, according to Development Director Douglas Miles, “The major theme is that most residents want to keep Fluvanna’s inherently rural character. That’s job number one.” REALTOR® Cindy Taylor, with RE/ MAX Realty Specialists, agrees. “My favorite things about Fluvanna County are the beauty of our rural landscape, including the James and Rivanna Rivers, the plentiful amenities, and the focus on small business and economic growth.” So don’t expect to see any sprawling subdivisions in Fluvanna’s future. With targeted development, the county can preserve its natural beauty while it at-

40 tracts new businesses and helps to grow

existing ones. That way residents don’t have to travel far for work, shopping, and restaurants. Schmack says, “You really can live a balanced life here in a true live, work, play environment.”

On or Off the Water The water tower at the Zion Crossroads Water and Sewer System earned a top 10 spot for best tower design in 2020. The image of a canoer on a river, a bicyclist in the countryside and a setting sun makes it clear what visitors can expect to find in Fluvanna. Rolling hills and mountain views serve as a backdrop to fantastic outdoor recreation. Three rivers sound the clarion call alerting locals that the fish are jumping and the waters are running. The Rivanna and Hardware Rivers both flow into the mighty James. Paddlers on the Rivanna find the 6.5-mile run from Crofton to Palmyra just right for novices. The next 15 miles to Columbia jump up to intermediate. The James River along the southern border of Fluvanna County offers mostly Class I and II riffles, great for fishing, tubing, and gentle paddling while enjoying the scenery. A multitude of islands at the confluence of the Hardware and the James highlight the Hardware River Wildlife Management Area. Visitors enjoy hunting, wildlife, and wildflower viewing on more than 1,000 acres. If dry land is more to your liking, the county-owned 900-acre Pleasant Grove Park, near Palmyra, is the place to be. Explore the 22-mile Heritage Trail by foot, mountain bike, or horse. The dog park, disc-golf course, sports fields, and sandy beach along the Rivanna make it

a one-stop destination for outdoor fun.

Water Drives Development Whether it’s a lake, river, or water infrastructure, the major population centers revolve around water. Although Palmyra is the county seat, more than 40 percent of the county’s 27,000+ residents live within a few miles of Lake Monticello. And it’s easy to see why. Described as a “summer camp for grown-ups,” the gated community sur-

rounds a 300-acre lake, boasts a rich tree canopy throughout an 18-hole golf course and enough activities to keep kids of all ages entertained. The lake attracts people interested in affordable resortstyle living all year long. Another reason for this concentration of homes and businesses is that the Lake Monticello area has been the only part of the county with the water and sewer infrastructure to support this level of density. As the new Zion Crossroads water and sewer system finally comes into play, expect a surge of businesses and services to pop up there. Schmack says, “We are finishing up building permitting and are starting to break ground on 125 acres of industrial property in the Zion Crossroads area. “It’s an exciting time in Fluvanna County! There is such an immense appetite for what we have to offer. We have projects going in every district.” Another population center in the county is Fork Union, home to the Fork Union Military Academy and the future home of new businesses. “Rezoning has already taken place and a business park was recently approved. Major properties have changed hands and sites are readying for some major revitalization,” according to Schmack. Scottsville hugs the horseshoe of the James River. It has the distinction of straddling the Albemarle/Fluvanna County line, with just a smidgen of the town in the southwest corner of Fluvanna. While most of the residences and businesses are on the Albemarle side, Fluvanna residents enjoy easy access to all Scottsville has to offer.

Making History With several hundred years of records since Europeans settled in Fluvanna, and an even richer history before that, the county is sure to please history buffs. Rassawek, the capital of the Monacan

Indian Nation, is located at the confluence of the Rivanna and James rivers. Its 5,000 years of history overlapped Jamestown’s founding and includes a sacred burial site. Each spring the James River Batteau Festival celebrates the history of these flat wooden cargo vessels with a 120-mile journey from Lynchburg to Powhatan. The former recreation director of Fluvanna County, Joe Ayers, built his own batteau and traveled on it to Richmond in 1983. Two years later he organized the first Batteau Festival and it’s been going strong ever since. The 1854 Pleasant Grove House on Route 53 serves as both a museum and the Fluvanna County Welcome Center. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the site has grown to more than 900 acres and hosts exhibits on Fluvanna history and transportation. The adjacent Farm Museum has historic local farm equipment. Self-guided tours of the Village of Palmyra include the Historic Courthouse and Old Stone Jail. The nearby HollandPage House is a historically renovated 1865 farmhouse. The Bremo Slave Chapel is the Commonwealth’s only known chapel for enslaved people. This Gothic Revival structure was built in 1835 as part of the Bremo Plantation. Bremo is also home to a 90-year-old coal-fired Dominion Energy power plant that was shuttered in 2018. Its demolition will be completed this year, eventually making the site available for other uses. This smattering of historic sites hints at the stature of Fluvanna County throughout history, including both Civil and Revolutionary War sites. Tomorrow’s history is being written by today’s locals. Eventually, the Nickels did purchase the old Thistle Gate Winery in Fluvanna. With a nod to the nearby river, CONTINUED ON PAGE 54

A great opportunity for an investor or farmer or hunter to own almost 500 acres of farm & forest land with a stream running through it in a beautiful part of Central Virginia. May also be one of the least expensive large tracts of agricultural land currently available for sale in Central Virginia. It is a few minutes from world class fishing on the James River near the confluence of a scenic Virginia river, The Rivanna River. It has many indigenous game species native to Virginia. It is not far from the capital of Virginia and easy access to I-64 Interstate. It would be ideal as a crop farm, a cattle or horse operation, a game or shooting preserve or as an energy production facility. The current owner has cleared part of the land in the front part of the farm so the piles of trees attest to the fact that more arable land is being created. Stunning building site for a manor home or lodge.Beautiful rock outcroppings and lush forests surround the borders of the property. It is very private and secluded and would be an excellent place for a retreat or second home. MLS#618362, $1,450,000

they reopened as Hardware Hills Winery. Nickels says, “Having just moved here last July, Fluvanna is still new to us. We absolutely love the many locals who come to see and visit with us, sharing their stories of local lore. Having experienced a full year of life in this rural area, we’ve learned much about local traditions.”

Buying in Fluvanna Like everywhere else, residential real estate inventory is historically low. Sandra Collins, Associate Broker with Long & Foster, reports “Four years ago there were regularly 80 to 90 listings. Today there are only 18. High prices in Charlottesville are pushing people outward making demand here as high as ever, there’s just nothing to buy. So that’s pushing our prices up too. Our average sales price is now over $366,000. “I recently sold a home in Fox Hollow (a subdivision of Palmyra) for $499,000 for all cash in just two days on the market. Buyers who want to be successful in this market need to be ready” Taylor advises potential buyers need to know what they want. “Some areas of Fluvanna County are much more populated than others. Lake Monticello has more than 4,400 existing homes. “Create a must-have and a wish list then prioritize that list. Then be ready. In my experience, a prompt and competitive offer with proof of funds or pre-approval from a reliable lender is key to winning the sale. If the first house doesn’t work out, don’t give up. There will be new listings coming to the market. And we are seeing buyer activity cool down as

market rates increase.” Like Schmack and the Nickels, newcomers are pleasantly surprised at what they find in Fluvanna County. They are also part of the impetus for helping the county reach its potential. Nickels says, “Fluvanna is a quiet and peaceful area. That is part of its charm and appeal for many. We want to be a part of what helps lift this community to the level it can successfully operate and enjoy. We look forward to building awareness of our Hardware Hill Winery. The growth of the Fluvanna business community shows promise and we hope to be a continuing part of that.” Whether in an established community like Lake Monticello or Scottsville, an area poised for growth like Zion Crossroads or Fork Union, or even the undeveloped countryside, finding just the right spot in Fluvanna County is not difficult. Collins helps people do it all the time. “We frequently get ‘halfbackers’—people who move from New York to Florida and then decide that was way too far south, so they come halfway back, to Fluvanna County. We also get people from all over the country coming here to enjoy the lifestyle that we have now,” she says. Stewart Tool, a California-based company opened a manufacturing company in Troy, relocating several staff with them. “They see the potential of what we are becoming and want to be part of it.” You can too.
