THIS WEEK The history books got it all wrong. The tales our country has been telling about its own past have too often been racist and sexist and exclusionary and incomplete. If you’ve been paying attention to what’s happened in the Charlottesville area recently, that’s not news.. So what comes next? Recently, we’ve seen plenty of examples of the effort that’s required—emotionally, but also logistically—to rewrite history. The preservers of the Daughters of Zion cemetery brought in high-tech ground-penetrating radar to map out the historic Black cemetery’s underground graves. Local activists and politicians worked together to pass state-level legislation that allowed us to remove Confederate monuments from our public parks. The Historic Resources Committee has spent months listening to descendants of the enslaved workers once sold in Court Square, so that the next monument erected in the space is just right. Rewriting history doesn’t just mean telling new stories—it requires legwork. This week’s feature offers yet another example of that work (p. 12). Out in Albemarle County, archaeologists spent the summer down on their knees in Virginia’s red clay, excavating the buried foundations of James Monroe’s Highland one brick at a time. Their research turned up valuable new information about the house and its people. If we’re willing to work for it, there’s so much more to be found.—Ben Hitchcock

Last week, former UVA basketball star Mamadi Diakite finished his first season in the NBA with a championship win. The Milwaukee Bucks’ 105-98 victory over the Phoenix Suns in game six made Diakite the first player to ever win an NCAA championship, a G-League championship, and an NBA championship. (He also won his high school state championship with the Blue Ridge School.) As if that wasn’t enough, the power forward is the first Guinean to win an NBA title. Diakite permanently etched his name into UVA history in the 2019 Elite Eight game against Purdue, where his buzzer-beater off a Kihei Clark assist leveled the score and sent the game to overtime. You know the rest of the story: UVA won the next two games, including the national championship. Diakite finished his four years at UVA and went undrafted in 2020, but signed a two-way contract with the Bucks shortly thereafter. In April 2021, he signed a multi-year standard NBA contract with the Bucks for over $3.4 million. This season, Diakite made 14 regularseason appearances, including one start, averaging over 10 minutes and three points per game. He played seven times in the Bucks’ playoff run, as well. Congratulations Mamadi!

IN BRIEF

There’s no shortage of people and organizations interested in taking Charlottesville’s now-removed Confederate statues off the city’s hands—32, to be exact, according to Charlottesville Tomorrow. Fourteen groups have expressed interest in the monuments, including the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center, the town of Goshen, Virginia, the local Sons of Confederate Veterans chapter, the Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia, and the Shenandoah Valley Battlefields National Historic District. Eighteen individuals also wish to erect the statues on their private property. In September, City Manager Chip Boyles will begin evaluating the inquiries.

Firearm fracas Gun owners gather as Albemarle ponders banning guns from county property By Ben Hitchcock

to the county ordinance, he criticized the city for the recent removal of racist Confederate statues, a practice he described as “Marxist.” “They’re going to call a Board of Supervisors meeting tonight, but it’s not open to the public,” Hamilton said. “You have to register through Zoom.” The Albemarle Board of Supervisors has been holding public meetings on Zoom for more than a year, and anyone is allowed to register and comment. Many community members tuned in to the meeting to do just that, including Albemarle County Commonwealth’s Attorney Jim Hingeley. “It’s been characterized as gun control— it is not an ordinance that has gun control as its purpose,” Hingeley said. “The purpose of this is for the county to manage government operations. Private property owners have that right. For example, sporting events do not allow firearms. …The government should have the same right.” “This is not a Second Amendment issue at all,” Hingeley added. “This ordinance in no way violates the Second Amendment.” Mike Fox, an Albemarle resident and the Virginia legislative lead for gun control advocacy group Moms Demand Action, spoke in favor of the ordinance. “For the sake of our lawmakers, tourists, families, and our law enforcement, we should not be forced to wait to act until tragedy strikes.” The county will continue to discuss the ordinance in the weeks ahead.

Gun owners rallied outside the County Office Building last week to protest a proposed ordinance.

In 2020, gun violence killed 20,000 Americans, according to The Washington Post. Harvey also said the ordinance was “political,” and insinuated that it was being proposed in response to the 2017 Unite the Right rally, but that it would instead target law-abiding gun owners. “This ordinance is against you—not the people that marched over there and made a horrible mess. It’s against the good people that didn’t do that.” Philip Van Cleave, president of gun-rights advocacy group the Virginia Citizens Defense League, talked about a recent lawsuit

filed against the government of Winchester, and threatened to file a suit in Albemarle. “Who knows where we might go next?” he said. “This seems like a nice area right here.” (You may recognize Van Cleave’s name— in 2018 he appeared on Sacha Baron Cohen’s “Who is America?” show, and was duped into participating in a PSA training 3-yearolds how to use guns.) Philip Andrew Hamilton, who is running as a Republican in Charlottesville’s bluerthan-blue House of Delegates district, also spoke. In addition to voicing his opposition

Delta variant threatens unvaccinated communities After two months of steady, relatively low numbers of new COVID cases, Virginia is starting to once again see an increase in new cases each day. On July 23, the sevenday average of new cases in the state was 523, the highest since May 15, according to data from The New York Times. While the original variant is currently the most prevalent strain of the coronavirus in Virginia—making up about 87 percent of infections—state health officials predict that the more-transmissible Delta variant will soon take its place. As of Friday, there were 213 cases of the Delta variant in the state. Nationwide, the Delta variant now makes up 83 percent of new cases, according to the Centers for Disease Control. In the Blue Ridge Health District, “it’s been hard to determine the actual presence of the [Delta] variant, because not all samples are going to get sequenced for the variant,” says Ryan McKay, Blue Ridge Health District COVID-19 incident commander. “Part of our working assumption is that it’s more prevalent in the community than we can actually identify.” The Delta variant is estimated to be 60 percent more transmissible than the already highly infectious Alpha variant. It

also may cause more severe illness than other strains. While there is potential for breakthrough cases among vaccinated people, “people who are being hospitalized across the country and having the most severe experiences with the Delta variant are those who are unvaccinated,” says McKay. “It’s a pandemic of the unvaccinated.” High vaccination rates in the BRHD have helped keep new cases mostly in the single digits since early May. In Charlottesville, about 59 percent of residents have received at least one dose of the vaccine, and almost 54 percent are fully vaccinated. In Albemarle County, nearly 68 percent have received at least one dose, and about 62 percent are fully vaccinated. However, less than half of the residents in nearby Louisa County are fully vaccinated. And like the rest of the country, vaccination rates have stalled across the health district over the past several months. To encourage more people to get the shot, the BRHD has sent community health educators and a mobile vaccine unit into neighborhoods with low vaccination rates. It has also continued to work with community leaders from demographics

A

collection of 100 or so area gun lovers gathered on the lawn of the Albemarle County Office Building last Wednesday afternoon to register their opposition to a proposed ordinance that would ban firearms on county-owned property, like parks and City Hall. At a meeting after the rally, the county ultimately decided to hold off on passing a new measure for the time being. Charlottesville approved an identical ordinance last year. Some rally attendees held signs—slogans included: “criminals ❤ gun control,” “a handgun is the ultimate feminine protection,” and “the city of Albemarle needs a lesson on the USA.” (Albemarle is a county, not a city.) The rally began on the edge of the office building’s large lawn, in a designated area. In a stirring display of civil disobedience, one speaker dramatically tore down one of the county’s signs, so the rally could move to the shade. Steve Harvey, a Republican who says he plans to run for Board of Supervisors in the next election cycle, claimed that the ordinance to restrict the carry of weapons in public places was addressing a problem that didn’t exist. “If you go to an engineer, and say, ‘This bridge has been standing for 250 years. Should we radically alter this bridge?’ No!” Harvey said.

COVID-19 cases are increasing, but high vaccination rates in the Blue Ridge Health District have helped keep new infections mostly in the single digits. disproportionately impacted by the virus, particularly Black and Latino communities, to answer questions and ease concerns people may have about the shot. McKay emphasizes that people should get vaccinated not only to protect themselves, but also those who are currently unable to get the vaccine: children under 12 and immunocompromised residents. Despite the rise in COVID cases spurred by variants, Governor Ralph Northam hasn’t announced any plans to reinstate pandemic restrictions. For vaccinated individuals,

“wearing a mask, especially indoors, if there’s lots of people and you don’t know those individuals, would be helpful,” McKay says. “That’s sort of counter to where we’ve been over the past couple of months, but we can see the numbers increasing— and we know it coincides with the expiration of the governor’s executive orders.” “While we don’t know the extent of Delta, it’s there,” he adds. “And now we can make decisions on how we protect ourselves and our community.”—Brielle Entzminger

advocate for themselves, it is not recognized by the city and has no contracts with it. Once City Council comes back from its recess in September, Ertl expects the councilors to begin discussing a collective bargaining ordinance. So far, Councilor Michael Payne has been the biggest supporter of the union effort. “Now that it’s allowed under state law, I think it’s time for the city to allow public employees to collectively bargain,” Payne says. “Furthermore, I hope that CAT employees unionizing can be part of a broader effort to expand unionization throughout Charlottesville and central Virginia—including big fights to expand unionization into the private sector and repeal right-towork in Virginia,” he adds. In the meantime, Ertl is working to get more CAT drivers to join the ATU and sign union cards. Most long-time drivers are on board with unionizing, but it’s been more of a challenge with the newer drivers who are not familiar with unions, says Ray. Once a majority of CAT drivers have shown an interest in unionizing, they will go through the process of getting the city to recognize them. The city will then have 120 days to respond. Ertl hopes council will pass an ordinance before an appeal is necessary. “[CAT drivers] just want to have a seat at the table and the same rights that transit workers elsewhere have,” he says. “They need the right to be able to advocate for themselves and boost their standard of living.”

will help reform CAT’s grievance and disciplinary processes, which are currently handled by City Hall. Ray says the policies can be unclear, and are not always followed. “As an employee, I really can’t trust the people above me, because they’re not going through the process,” Ray says. Ertl points to the racist origins of rightto-work laws—which were adapted mostly in the 1940s and 1950s by segregationist politicians to prevent organizing among workers of all races—as another reason to allow collective bargaining. The phrase right-to-work was popularized by white supremacist and anti-Semite businessman Vance Muse, who lobbied for anti-union laws across the South, so that “white women and white men [will not] be forced into organizations with black African apes.” “We’ve taken down the statues here, but we still have the legacy of Jim Crow here [with] the anti-union laws,” says Ertl. “If you look at [CAT employees], it’s predominantly people of color, and a good amount of immigrants.” This year, Charlottesville firefighters have also urged City Council to pass a collective bargaining ordinance for city employees. Though the Charlottesville Professional Firefighters Association helps firefighters

or decades, Virginia has had controversial right-to-work laws, which ban employers from requiring union membership. Though supporters of the laws claim they protect the rights of workers and attract businesses, others say they weaken unions, keep wages low, and benefit corporations—Virginia has one of the lowest unionization rates in the country. But under the Democratic majority in the General Assembly, labor laws have slowly begun to change. And Charlottesville Area Transit drivers are hoping to take advantage of that. Thanks to new laws, municipalities now have the authority to enact ordinances allowing city and county employees to form unions and engage in collective bargaining. Previously, state law prohibited municipalities from recognizing any union as a bargaining agent for public employees. “We’ve been active as far as trying to get [a union] together for a while now, but just haven’t been really successful,” says Matthew Ray, who has driven for CAT for seven and a half years. “Having representation—a go-between between us and the city—is definitely needed now.” The primary reason for the union push is wages. Full-time CAT drivers start at $16.97 an hour. Only a few currently earn over $20 an hour—the longest-serving driver makes $23.28 an hour. (Over a year, $20 per hour of full-time work comes to about $41,000.) “The disparity in pay between myself and someone who has been here twice as long as I have is something like an 89-cent difference,” says Ray. Meanwhile, unionized bus drivers make much higher wages elsewhere, according to John Ertl of the Amalgamated Transit Union. The ATU’s drivers in other cities earn as much as $33 an hour, Ertl says. “A lot of these folks here, they can’t afford to live in the community that they serve,” says Ertl of CAT drivers. “A lot have to work multiple jobs. These folks have given it their all through the pandemic, Nazi rally, snowstorms...even though they have to drive in from distant counties to make it here.” “You have to go through regular drug screenings, wake up at 3 or 4am, drive a bus for long days, hold your urine for hours at a time, get spit on by angry customers who don’t want to wear their masks,” he adds. “It’s a very hard, tough job.” In addition to negotiating higher wages and better terms of employment, a union

ow do you lose a president’s house?” That was Highland Executive Director Sara BonHarper’s reaction when a 2016 archaeological dig conducted at James Monroe’s plantation turned up a discovery that completely reinterpreted the site. The research uncovered part of the foundation of Monroe’s original 1799 home, under the front yard of the existing Victorian-era Massey House. Highland’s largest Monroe-era standing structure, once thought to be a wing of the original home, had in fact been a free-standing guest house, one that Monroe had described in an 1818 letter to his son-in-law. Monroe, the country’s fifth president, lived at Highland from 1799 to 1823, along with his family and a large number of enslaved workers. The property is now owned by William & Mary, Monroe’s alma mater, and is open to the public as a museum. The 2016 dig reshaped the public history work that’s taking place there, and this summer, another round of archaeological work has expanded what’s known about Monroe’s home and the people who lived and worked there. In 2020, Bon-Harper—an archaeologist by training—secured a $24,000 grant from the Archaeological Institute of America and the National Endowment of the Humanities to continue the excavation of Monroe’s original home. That grant covered the cost of several William & Mary graduate students and a couple of employees. With some additional

volunteers, Bon-Harper and her team spent the month of June excavating several sections of the home’s foundation— often while Highland visitors looked on.

Getting their H A N D S D I R T Y This year’s excavation focused on four investigation areas. The findings provide a fascinating picture of the old house, but also of the value, possibilities, and frustrations of archaeological research. One of the archaeologists’ goals was figuring out which side of the house had been the front—nailing that down would help to develop the home’s layout as well as map possible exterior features, like a front porch or entrance drive. Archaeologists do know where the chimney stood, and the 2016 research revealed the outline of a large room north of the base of the chimney, suggesting that was the front of the house. This summer, in trying to confirm that hypothesis, the team found something much more interesting: a huge amount of fire damage. Wall and plaster debris had fallen and fused, signs of a conflagration so intense that one side of the structure had collapsed. While historical documents speak of a fire at Highland after Monroe sold the property, this discovery illustrates a catastrophic event—which

may help answer Bon-Harper’s question about how the president’s house was “lost.” The archaeologists also sought to map the original home’s eastern side. Excavation found no evidence of extensions or additions to the house along that side—“and we didn’t find any interesting trash sites,” Bon-Harper notes regretfully. Garbage pits and trash piles are gold for archaeologists; what residents of the time throw out reveals a great deal about what they did, made, used, and ate. But the team was able to confirm the structure’s eastern boundary. Additionally, the archaeologists wanted to figure out the subterranean structure of the original home. Did the cellar on the south end of the house connect to the “part-stone” cellar on the north end mentioned in historical documents? Instead of cellars, however, the excavation team ran across trenches made later, by people scavenging stone from the foundation, and had to document those features. In archaeology, as in any scientific discipline, “You have to be open to the ‘something else’,” Bon-Harper says. “We may not find the answer to our question, but we will find interesting information.” Insurance documents show the original home’s kitchen was not a separate building but was attached to the main house, unlike most kitchens in this period. The team hoped further excavation could shed light on the life of Hannah, the Monroes’ enslaved cook. The team found the usual ar-

tifacts from kitchen operations—glass, ceramics, and bone— and they also found a deep disturbed area that might indicate a below-grade entrance to the kitchen wing, or might be a later intrusion from the construction of the Massey House in the 1870s. Getting more specific, though, will have to wait for a future round of archaeology.

exhibits to reflect a fuller understanding of the site and the people who lived there. The guest house’s new installation will feature two refurbished period rooms, using furnishings and personal articles from Highland’s collection. Three new exhibit rooms will focus on the building’s history and the techniques, including dendrochronology (tree-ring dating), used to confirm its identification; the archaeological findings about the original 1799 home; and Monroe’s career and his world, including those who lived at his plantation. (Highland also offers a behind-the-scenes tour that allows guests to see the exhibit installation in progress. Visitors can reserve a spot online.)

“We who do public history are charged with looking at historical figures and putting [their lives] in context,” BonHarper says. “This new understanding of the site is a really big thing—I hope people come ready to explore and expand their understanding of our history.” Matthew Gibson, executive director of Virginia Humanities, an NEH affiliate that has funded research work at the site in the past, credits Highland’s efforts to investigate both the historical record and the physical evidence—“trying to fill the gaps in the story, finding out what they can say” and telling “a multi-vocal history.” Bon-Harper hopes to have the revamped guest house open to the public by summer’s end. The exhibits will be self-guided, so visitors can proceed at their own pace and feel COVID safe, but Highland’s trained guides will be available throughout to answer questions. Guided walks, public events, and trail access will continue as usual. And Highland has big plans for the future. The organization hopes to conduct annual excavations, install interactive exhibits, and continue re-examining Monroe, his plantation, and the men and women who lived and worked there. “This process of research and discovery is essential to Highland as a historic site—it helps us find new answers and new narratives,” says Bon-Harper. “And ‘now’ is always an important time to find out more about the past.”

Now that this excavation phase is completed, the holes have been filled back in, a necessary precaution to preserve the evidence still in situ. For a deeper analysis of the artifacts found this summer, Highland is partnering with the Digital Archaeological Archive of Comparative Slavery, a grantsupported program that is part of Monticello’s archaeology department, to coordinate the findings with many institutions researching the slave-based societies in the mid-Atlantic, Carolinas, and Caribbean. In the meantime, Highland’s next project is already under way: completely revamping the presentation of Monroe’s guest house. During July and August, visitors can take outdoor guided history tours, explore the grounds and gardens, and walk the seven miles of trails. But the building is closed while the staff, with input from Highland’s Council of Descendant Advisors, develops new

Following curiosity

BREAKING DOWN THE HOG, A NEW TWIST AT BAGGBY’S, AND A MONSOON OF MONSOONS Local culinary historian Leni Sorensen got some screen time in Netflix’s recent limited series “High On The Hog,” hosted by food writer Stephen Satterfield. The show explores how African American culinary traditions shaped modern American cuisine. In the third episode, “Our Founding Chefs,” Satterfield journeys to Monticello to tell the story of James Hemings, chef de cuisine for Thomas Jefferson and older brother to Sally Hemings. As a young man, Hemings was brought to Paris to train in the art of French cooking, and he introduced a unique French-Virginian fusion cuisine when he returned to the plantation. Satterfield and Sorensen discuss Hemings’ role in bringing Afro-European food into the cultural zeitgeist of the 18th-century United States. “‘High on the Hog’ is the first time we’ve ever seen a show dedicated to Black food culture, on this scale, with this kind of investment and production and distribution.” says Satterfield.

Students in UVA sculpture and mindfulness courses combine efforts in an inspiring outdoor exhibition at Kluge-Ruhe.

F

eeling stressed? Suffering from pandemic anxiety? Need a staycation? “Breathe with Me” offers a special

respite. Inspired by dadirri, the Aboriginal practice of deep listening, “Breathe With Me,” an installation at the Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection of the University of Virginia, invites visitors to slow down, attune to nature, and connect with the salubrious qualities well known to Indigenous people and now embraced by Western medicine. A collaboration between the Kluge-Ruhe and the UVA art department and the Contemplative Sciences Center, the show pairs outdoor sculptures by students of William Bennett with reflective prompts composed by students in Jayme Siet’s Mindfulness and Nature course. Conceived during the height of the pandemic as a means to provide safe outdoor programming, the project is the brainchild of Kluge-Ruhe Education and Program Manager Lauren Maupin. “We knew that providing the UVA sculpture community with an extensive outdoor space to dream bigger with their sculptures would result in something unique and engaging,” says Maupin. The inclusion of the mindfulness/deep listening aspect dovetails neatly with the museum’s collection.

The project also aligns with the COVID-19 policies instituted by UVA for 2020-21 that required all in-person sculpture classes to meet outside. Bennett points out that working outside also has particular resonance for this generation of students who “are passionate and concerned about the fate of the earth. This venture gave them the opportunity to work with the earth, she says, as material and to have the beautiful landscape of the KlugeRuhe museum as the context of their work.” The installation includes 13 site-specific sculptures positioned along a mown path in the museum’s backyard. The prompts, accessed by QR codes using Smartphones, are designed to guide viewers through a mindful engagement with nature. Walking amongst the sculptures one is dazzled by the aspiration and obvious thought, care, and sweat that went into the works. “I believe that there is a strength and power that beginning art students bring to the table,” says Bennett. “Experienced commentators mentioned the ambitious plans of the young sculptors, who were unafraid and didn’t know what they could not do, so they did it.” Isabella Whitfield’s “Together Forever/ Forever Together” features two parallel sets of stairs cut into the earth heading downwards in opposite directions. Even without the title, the piece suggests entrances to two graves. Descending into them is a little

creepy. One gets a sense of entering into a subterranean realm. The perfect earthen steps are remarkable feats of craftsmanship. Piled behind the piece, dirt removed to form the holes speaks to the temporary absence of that volume and suggests that at some point it will be poured back into the holes. Surrounding the installation, six wood stanchions support a rope and also small pieces of wood engraved with poems by Maggie Weaver that ponder the shared fate of nature and humans. Two works, Addison Keatts’ “Ascension” and Sharon Chong’s “Me, Myself and You,” introduce the sense of smell with a heady perfume that emanates from the cedar used in their work. Keatts binds together scraggly branches to form a teepee shape, inviting the viewer to step inside the shelter and gaze out at the mountains and up at the sky through a perfect oculus. The piece was inspired by Keatts’ quest for a sense of home. Building it also gave her an outlet for the sadness and anger she felt about the death of a friend. Consisting of wooden planks sunk into the ground, “Me, Myself and You” forms a double spiral of 8-foot-high planks. Walking on the path between the planks is intended to be a contemplative experience—closed off from the outside world, one becomes more focused on the immediate surroundings. In the spaces between the planks one can see visitors walking on the other path within the shared solitude. Calista Rieken’s “Symbiosis” is a meditation on the interconnectedness of nature. Her figures of a deer and wolf mother and her two pups are faced with a veneer of bark, suggesting they are one with and reliant upon not only the trees—a couple of the figures emerge directly out of the tree trunks—but each other. Continuing the animal theme, UVA sculpture teaching and studio assistant Ed Miller’s “Earthen Bison” references the history of that great creature whose pre18th century range extended as far east as Virginia. Constructed of earth, chicken wire, and straw, the animal has a head made of fired red clay. Positioning yourself with the mountains behind the sculpture, you can envision those long-gone animals in the landscape. Bennett’s “Omphalos/Oculus Looking in Seeing Out” features three dome-like structures: the dome of earth formed by the dirt removed to create the path; the concrete dome, a nod to Jefferson; and the stainless steel dome, which Bennett describes as “A curious observatory building where a participant looks in to the see the stars within the earth rather than looking out to see the heavens above.” Bennett points out that art by students rarely sees the light of day. “This was a chance for my students to make work that would have an audience, completing the gift exchange that is at the core of our art-making tradition.” “Breathe with Me” is indeed a welcome gift to a Charlottesville community emerging from the isolation of a pandemic.

Truncated intentions The Hidden Life of Trees wavers off course By Deirdre Crimmins arts@c-ville.com

In The Hidden Life of Trees, a documentary based on his bestselling book, German forester Peter Wohlleben encourages the audience to think like a tree.

Ultimately, the clunkiness of The Hidden Life of Trees lies in the translation of Wohlleben’s book to the screen. spoken German to formally booming nature host is jarring and feels forced, especially given that we were already learning about trees from the man himself. Trees continues this way—one minute we watch Wohlleben have a personal moment with the oldest tree in the world, talking to its caretakers about root systems and life cycles, and the next we’re presented with

an elementary school-level science lesson. This is a pity, because the science and conservation discussion within The Hidden Life of Trees is riveting. Wohlleben is always educating—there are examples of the correct way to harvest trees and also replant them, if at all—and the most interesting lessons come from his interactions with people who want to learn and do better. The Hidden Life of Trees also does a solid job of showing nature’s splendor. Opting to view a documentary about trees, it’s likely that viewers are hoping for some nature porn, and the film delivers plenty. The forests are vast and calm, and the audience is given time to observe them without being rushed. Using drones for nature shots has become common, but here the drones are shown not only as a

tool for filmmakers, but as a way to monitor forest health from above. Layering the explorations over the drone footage feels seamless, logical, and practical, and the film would be much better if this

hen a documentary falls flat, it can be hard to pinpoint the weak link in its cinematic chain. Is it a boring subject, unengaging speakers, poor editing, or an entirely different set of missteps? The Hidden Life of Trees is not an outright failure, but its shortcomings in direction and assembly add up. The good news is that the topic itself is fascinating. The film is based on a book of the same title by German forester Peter Wohlleben, whose dedication to trees and forest preservation comes through on the screen. Wohlleben talks about trees being social organisms with life cycles and stimuli responses that border on emotions. He talks about the importance of ethical harvesting and maintenance of forests, and helps people understand what non-farmed trees really want from their tree neighbors and their soil. All of this could come across as condescending from a less skilled communicator, but Wohlleben strives to connect with his audience rather than talk at them. It’s clear why director Jörg Adolph wanted to make a film about Wohlleben: He deserves a platform. Ultimately, the clunkiness of The Hidden Life of Trees lies in the translation of Wohlleben’s book to the screen. When we first see him, Wohlleben is recording himself with his phone, talking about finding old stumps in the forest and discovering that they are surprisingly still alive. He seems friendly and confident, and excited to share his discovery with viewers. The scene is framed by beautiful drone footage of a lush forest and surrounding greenery. Then the film shifts into an overly literal representation when an English speaker reads what we can only assume is a passage from the book. The sudden pivot from gently

Shannon started her commercial wine experience with Horton’s Sparkling Wines. Under her leadership her wines have received national recognition through Gold and Silver medals. Most recently her Suil - Sparkling Viognier - disgorged March 2020 received 91 points from Robert Parker Wine Advocate. Following close behind in her mother’s footsteps, Caitlin Horton released her wine, the Gears & Lace series in 2019. This series features five incredible wines, one of which is the world’s first barrel aged Pinotage Rosé. Caitlin received national recognition for her first line of wines from SciFi Magazine.

2020 may have been filled with obstacles but it was had some opportunities. With 12 hours of skin contact, this wine has a beautiful and unique flavor profile and personality. This can be very risky, the process needs to be constantly monitored and the winemaker needs to use a deft hand. The aromas are enchanting with subtle and nuances of stonefruit, and the honeysuckle that is indicative of Viognier is undeniable. The midpalate is explosive and the oak aging gives this wine robust finish.

Weekend hours: 12 NOON - 6 PM on Saturdays and Sundays. First come, first served at umbrella tables in our Boxwood Garden. Enjoy the mountain views while sipping your favorite Kilaurwen wines available by bottle, glass and DIY tasting flights.

By Rob Brezsny

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “There are many things in your heart you can never tell to another person,” declared Virgo actor Greta Garbo. “It is not right that you should tell them,” she concluded. “You cheapen yourself, the inside of yourself, when you tell them.” I presume Greta was being melodramatic. My attitude is the opposite of hers. If you find allies who listen well and who respect your vulnerability, you should relish telling them the secrets of your heart. To do so enriches you, deepens you, and adds soulful new meanings to your primary mysteries. The coming weeks will be a favorable time to seek this wise pleasure in abundance.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct.22): Now is a fantastic time to seek out effervescent socializing and convivial gatherings and festive celebrations. If you surround yourself with lively people, you’ll absorb the exact influences you need. May I suggest you host a fun event? If you do, you could send out invitations that include the following allures: “At my get-together, the featured flavors will be strawberry chocolate and impossibly delicious. There’ll be magic vibrations and mysterious mood-enhancers. Liberating conversations will be strongly encouraged. Unpredictable revelations will be honored. If possible, please unload your fears and anxieties in a random parking lot before arriving.”

Scorpio

July 28 – August 3, 2021 c-ville.com

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Scorpio author Andrew Sean Greer writes, “As the Japanese will tell you, one can train a rose to grow through anything, to grow through a nautilus even, but it must be done with tenderness.” I think that’s a vivid metaphor for one of your chief tasks in the coming weeks, Scorpio: how to carefully nurture delicate, beautiful things as you coax them to ripen in ways that will bring out their sturdiness and resilience. I believe you now have an extra capacity for wielding love to help things bloom.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Suggested experiments to try soon: 1. Remember a past moment when you were touched with the sudden realization that you and a person you’d recently met were destined to fall in love. 2. Remember a past moment when you kissed some-

Leo

CULTURE FREE WILL ASTROLOGY

(July 23-Aug. 22): Leo poet Renée Ashley articulates a perspective I recommend you adopt. She writes, “I’m drawn to what flutters nebulously at the edges, at the corner of my eye—just outside my certain sight. I want to share in what I am routinely denied, or only suspect exists. I long for a glimpse of what is beginning to occur.” With her thoughts as inspiration, I advise you to be hungry for what you don’t know and haven’t perceived. Expand your curiosity so that it becomes wildly insatiable in its quest to uncover budding questions and raw truths at the peripheries of your awareness.

one for the first time. 3. Remember a past moment when someone told you they loved you for the first time or when you told someone you loved them for the first time. 4. Allow the feelings from the first three experiments to permeate your life for five days. See through the eyes of the person you were during those previous breakthroughs. Treat the whole world as expansively and expectantly as you did during those times.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Capricorn poet Kenneth Rexroth was shirtless as he strolled along a rural road. To his delightful amazement, a fritillary butterfly landed on his shoulder, fluttered away, landed again, fluttered away— performed this dance numerous times. Nothing like this had ever happened to him. Later he wrote, “I feel my flesh / Has suddenly become sweet / With a metamorphosis / Kept secret even from myself.” In the coming days, I’m expecting at least one comparable experience for you. Here’s your homework: What sweet metamorphoses may be underway within you—perhaps not yet having reached your conscious awareness?

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “Each time we don’t say what we want to say, we’re dying,” said Aquarian artist and singer Yoko Ono. I will add a further nuance: Each time we’re not aware of the feeling or experience or situation we want, we’re dying. And these will be key themes now that you’ve entered the “I know what I want and I know how to ask for it” phase of your cycle. The most healing and vivifying thing you can do during the next six weeks is to be precise about your desires.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): In 1829, Piscean author Victor Hugo began work on The Hunchback

of Notre Dame. He had other projects, though, and by September 1830, he had made scant progress on the novel. Growing impatient, his publisher demanded that he finish the Hunchback manuscript by February 1831. In response, Hugo barricaded himself in his room to compel himself to meet the deadline. He even locked his clothes in a closet to prevent himself from going out. For the next five months, he wore only a gray shawl as he toiled nonstop. His stratagem worked! I recommend you consider trying a somewhat less rigorous trick to enforce your self-discipline in the coming weeks. There’s no need to barricade yourself in your fortress. But I hope you will have fun taking stringent measures.

Aries (March 21-April 19): What does it mean to feel real? Some people have a hard time doing that. They have such false ideas about who they are that they rarely feel real. Others are so distracted by trivial longings that they never have the luxury of settling into the exquisite at-home-ness of feeling real. For those fortunate enough to regularly experience this treasured blessing, feeling real isn’t a vague concept. It’s a vivid sensation of being conscious in one’s body. When we feel real, we respond spontaneously, enjoy playing, and exult in the privilege of being alive. After studying your astrological potentials, Aries, I suspect that you now have an enhanced capacity to feel real.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): When she was a child, author Valerie Andrews visited her secret sanctuary at sunset every day for seven years. She lay on the ground among birch trees and aromatic privet plants, feeling “the steady rhythmic heartbeat of the earth” as she basked in the fading light. I’d love for you to

enjoy the revitalizing power of such a shrine. The decisions you have to make will become clear as you commune with what Andrews calls “a rootlike umbilicus to the dark core of the land.” Do you know of such a place? If not, I suggest you find or create one.

Gemini (May 21-June 20): I suspect that your immediate future will be a patchwork of evocative fragments. You may be both annoyed and entertained by a series of flashing attractions, or an array of pretty baubles, or a hubbub of tasks that all seem at least mildly worth doing. Chances are good that they will ultimately knit together into a crazy-quilt unity; they will weave into a pattern that makes unexpected sense. In the spirit of the spicy variety, I offer three quotes that may not seem useful to you yet, but will soon. 1. “Isn’t it possible that to desire a thing, to truly desire it, is a form of having it?”—Galway Kinnell 2. “It is not half so important to know as to feel.”—Rachel Carson 3. “Like all explorers, we are drawn to discover what’s out there without knowing yet if we have the courage to face it.”—Pema Chödrön.

Cancer (June 21-July 22): A Tumblr blogger named Cece writes, “The fact that you can soak bread in sugar, eggs, cinnamon, and vanilla, then butter a pan and fry said bread to make a meal is really liberating.” I agree. And I share this with you in the hope of encouraging you to indulge in other commonplace actions that will make you feel spacious and uninhibited. You’re in a phase of your astrological cycle when you’ll thrive on doing day-to-day details that excite your lust for life. Enjoying the little things to the utmost will be an excellent strategy for success. Expanded weekly audio horoscopes and daily text message horoscopes: Real Astrology.com, (877) 873-4888.

Juggling kids, work, and caregiving is a growing challenge The term "Sandwich Generation," used to describe parents caring for young children and their aging parents at the same time, has been around since the early 1980s, but for many people who find themselves in that situation, it can still come as a complete surprise. Maybe Mom or Dad have actually been helping care for your children for years, or been so independent you haven't had to worry, when suddenly a health or mobility setback, or a chronic condition that's escalated, completely changes your family dynamic. “Mom had always been the caretaker and problem-solver in the family,” said a caregiver I spoke to several years ago, when her Mom, who had been dealing with physical problems from a stroke for more than a decade, finally couldn't live at home alone without assistance. The caregiver, and her siblings, all had careers and kids of their own, and while they'd helped their mother over the years -- errands, housework, home repairs, emotional support -- the level of care she now needed, while not so severe as to require assisted living, had become more than they could handle. A 2020 study from the National Alliance for Caregiving (NAC) and AARP found that

a release last year. “Family caregivers provide vital help and care for their loved ones, yet this survey shows that they keep getting stretched thinner and thinner."

53 million Americans were providing unpaid care to an adult with health or functional needs, more than 10 million more who were doing so in 2015. With Boomers turning 65 at a rate of 10,000 a day, that trend shows no signs of slowing. Meanwhile, the study also showed that there are a growing number of Millennial and Gen Z caregivers, that older caregivers find it hard to focus on their own health, and that 30 percent of caregivers have stopped saving and taken on personal debt. While the average time spent providing care was 23.7 hours a week, over 20 percent of caregivers reported providing care for more than 40 hours a week. “The coronavirus pandemic is exacerbating the challenges family caregivers were already facing from a personal health, financial and emotional standpoint,” said Susan Reinhard, RN, PhD, Senior Vice President at AARP, in

outings to places like Carter Mountain and the Wildrock Nature Play and Discovery Center in Crozet. They also accept Medicaid and provide scholarships to those who are eligible. “Once we got her there, the socialization was very important, and it revived her, brought new life to her,” the caregiver told me. “The center helped us in so many ways, giving her the personal interaction she needed, allowing us to keep her at home, to go to work...and we were comfortable knowing she was in a safe, loving environment."

Q: What is your favorite activity or space at Our Lady of Peace? A: My favorite activity is reaching out to folks here, trying to brighten their day and receiving so much more in return. Q: Favorite part of retiring in Central Virginia? A: My favorite part of retiring in central Virginia is threefold...enjoying this beautiful part of the planet, learning so much of our history from a professor from UVA, and living so close to my younger sister and husband.

Q: What words of wisdom do you have? A: Someone wiser than me once said, “Wherever you go, there you are.” Anyone choosing to come to Our Lady of Peace with desire to live independently or assisted living with a positive feeling about the move is bound to find peace and many friends.

“We found Commonwise after struggling to find reliable care. We felt the difference immediately and they have provided a consistently high level of service ever since. Every caregiver has been delightful and professional.”

@cville_culture

Q: How has living at Our Lady of Peace made you more independent or increased your quality of life? A: Living here at Our Lady of Peace has been a blessing. It seems that every staff member here does their “job” as if it is more than just a job, but a ministry to all the elderly here.

PHAST-TSC Trial Not Enrolling

Brain Research Study

Due to logistical concerns associated with COVID-19, the PHAST-TSC clinical trial was terminated and is no longer enrolling participants. This study, sponsored by Diffusion Pharmaceuticals Inc., was testing whether an experimental drug, trans-sodium crocetinate (TSC), was safe and helped people having a stroke. The study planned to enroll 160 people with stroke as they were taken by ambulance to UVA Medical Center, Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital or Augusta Health

Healthy adults between the ages of 18-65 with no current or past serious medical or psychiatric conditions are needed to create a Brain Library. Participants will be asked to complete interviews, cognitive assessment, a blood draw and a brain MRI. Study procedures will be completed over 1-2 visits and will last a total of 5 hours. Compensation is up to $200 for completing the study. Principal Investigator: James Stone, MD, PHD.

NEWS & VIEWS Habitat for Humanity Greater Charlottesville Recently Celebrated Two New Homeowners in a MixedIncome Community

Bennett’s Village, a local non-profit dedicated to building a place where all can play, is delighted to announce plans to build an accessible treehouse at Pen Park. Concept designs will debut at Stonefield at their July 30th Music on the Lawn event benefiting Bennett’s Village. Bennett’s Village is named after Bennett McClurken-Gibney. A boy who loved to play and happened to use a wheelchair to get around. Nearby playgrounds are not designed for all people—like those in wheelchairs or those with sensory disabilities. If Bennett’s family wanted him to have the freedom to play, they had to drive all the way to Richmond, home of Park365, the nearest accessible playground. Bennett’s sudden passing in February of 2018, at just five years old, left an immeasurable sense of loss in the lives of all who loved him. Inspired by his wish to have a birthday party at the Park365, they wanted to create a place here in our community where day-to-day real-world barriers could be forgotten and where ALL children and adults could enjoy the magic of connecting with the world and each other. So they partnered with the award-winning Baltimore-based landscape architecture firm Mahan Rykiel Associates (MRA) to create a place that will serve the needs of all, including people with mobility limitations, sensory processing disorders, and developmental delays. Bennett’s Village will announce phase one of their designs on July 30th, 2021. What began as a dream for one child has grown into a project that will meet a significant and growing need for people across the age spectrum and throughout our community. Census data in our region shows that we have more than 9,000 people under the age of 65 who have a disability. That number jumps to 1 in 3 when you look at those over 65. And these statistics do not even include those with temporary injuries or the many families who travel here for health care/treatment. We invite you to join us at Stonefield’s July 30th Music on the Lawn event, where we will share our next steps to make Bennett’s dream come true and how you can help play a part, while enjoying great music, food, and fun from 5-7 p.m. For more information on how you can help Bennett’s Village make Charlottesville a place where all can play, visit us online at www.bennettsvillage.org.

Recently, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville celebrated two families who purchased affordable homes in the Huntley Avenue Neighborhood. The dedication ceremony honored the partner families’ completion of Habitat’s homebuyer education and financial counseling curriculum, in conjunction with hundreds of hours of volunteer sweat equity, to prepare for the purchase of their new Habitat homes. For Marquita Thomas and her four boys, purchasing this home on Huntley is a symbol of her dedication and hard work. “It’s a light at the end of the tunnel,” says Marquita, a frontline worker for University of Virginia’s Health System. Throughout the past year, Marquita has worked nights at the hospital, helping deliver babies, so she could oversee virtual learning with her boys during the day. “This past year has been really, really stressful. When you think about all the steps you have to take you feel like you can’t do it, and that’s how I felt sometimes. But I just kept up with it. I never gave up.” At the event, Marquita’s perseverance and hard work were celebrated. In partnership with R.L. Beyer Custom Home Builders, Habitat has added affordable homeownership to this infill development located in the Fry’s Spring Neighborhood. “We believe that one of the keys to moving our society past a reflexive ‘us vs. them’ stance is to create opportunities for people from all walks of life to live, grow, learn and thrive together,” says Habitat President and CEO Dan Rosensweig. “We are so excited for Marquita and Lakeisha, their families and their new neighbors in Huntley.” About Habitat: Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville brings people together to build and rebuild homes and communities while catalyzing new pathways to safe, decent affordable housing. Our work has evolved from building one house at a time to developing vibrant, sustainable, mixed-income communities, where local families can achieve their dreams of homeownership. Since our founding in 1991, we have built 225 new homes and safely housed 2,000 neighbors, thanks to the commitment and dedication of our thousands of volunteers and supporters.

Commercial Real Estate:

What a Difference a Year Makes BY CARLA HUCKABEE

message. Particularly when long-time stalwarts The Downtown Grille closed after 21 years and The College Inn after 53 years, it was easy to get caught up in negative predictions and trends. Fortunately, the scale of vacancies and turnover isn’t un-precedented and isn’t beyond the capacity to be reabsorbed. Chris Engel, Director of Economic Development for Charlottesville, said “We’ve seen a little more turnover than we’re used to seeing and some popular, longtime businesses are leaving, but I expect those vacant storefronts to be filled pretty quickly.” Chipotle Mexican Grill has already taken The College Inn’s space. Stoner agrees. “The vacancy rate for the Downtown Mall has been statistically zero. That has stunted our ability to grow and remain vibrant and current. Turnover and vacancies can create opportunities for the next generation of entrepreneurs to come in and shape the market.” In Scottsville much of the commercial district is owned outright, according to Matthew Holt, REALTOR® with 1st Dominion Realty Inc. “We didn’t have very many businesses completely failing. And now everything has started to pop back up as customers are starting to engage with businesses in person again.”

Every Sector Contributing

CAAR REAL ESTATE WEEKLY WWW.CAAR.COM

While not every sector of the commercial real estate market has been hit equally hard, there are sparks of recovery coming from every direction. Office buildings nearing completion are poised to have their workers support local retail, restaurants, and services. Most notable in the area are the Center of Developing Entrepreneurs, (CODE) and the Apex Plaza Building. Developer Andrew Boninti, CHS Development, says “The CODE building is scheduled to open on Labor Day. Most of our tenants will still be working on the interior buildout of their spaces, but we should have one or two of our main tenants ready to move in around that date.” And just a few months afterwards, Apex Plaza is expected to be cleared for occupancy with most of their tenants completing buildout over the winter

A

year ago, the business and economic outlook was downright gloomy. Everyone was beginning to realize that COVID wasn’t going to just disappear at the end of the summer. Restaurants were shuttered or had switched to take out only. Most office employees were working from home and nearly all town centers and urban areas were taking the economic brunt of those missing employees who no longer shopped and ate in their establishments as part of their daily routine. A year later, as we are fully enmeshed in the recovery phase of the COVID pandemic, most are breathing a collective sigh of relief as we realize that it could have been a whole lot worse.

Left: The CODE building is scheduled to open on Labor Day Below: The Downtown Grille closed after 21 years

Not the Worst Possible Scenario With the caveat that the burden has not been spread evenly and people lost their lives, their businesses and their livelihoods, the worst-case scenario did not play out. “The economic fallout from the COVID pandemic is not as bad as we expected,” said Jenny Stoner, Senior Associate with Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer. “I think a lot of people, including many experts, are pleasantly surprised at where we are in our economic comeback. In part, that’s because we did not fall as far as we could have.” On Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall, empty store fronts are rare. When they began popping up during the pandemic, it broadcast that all was not well. Similar vacancies and turnover at UVA’s shopping district, The Corner, spread the same

Supporting the Expansion Tangential factors supporting this economic bounce back include the expansion of broadband and potential open container regulations. Areas without access to broadband internet service can hardly be considered viable commercial real estate. Broadband is critical to allowing homes, businesses, and educational institutions to function. A recent partnership to support highspeed internet to underserved areas of Albemarle, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa, and other rural counties will likely support even greater economic expansion. Firefly Fiber Broadband has already committed to providing universal service in Nelson County. Another potential strategy under consideration to increase economic vibrancy months. Besides the office workers that will become customers for local restaurants and services, Apex Plaza shines a bright light on Charlottesville as home of the largest mass timber building east of the Mississippi. Stoner says, “Apex is putting Charlottesville on the map as a beacon of sustainability. In addition to the building and workers in it, this will generate residual economic benefits to this area for years to come.” In the manufacturing sector, Stewart Tool chose Fluvanna County for its east coast operations and will invest more than $9 million and create 22 jobs in Fluvanna County. Besides breathing life into the vacant factory on Edgecomb Road in Zion Crossroads, the plant creates 22 new jobs in the area. And the impact doesn’t end there. Bryan Rothamel, Economic Development Coordinator for Fluvanna County reports, “A property across the street from Stewart Tool Company was approved for a rezoning to I-1. The prospective property owner intends to build an industrial warehouse of 100,000 – 200,000 square feet.” The hospitality sector is experiencing a shift in the market, while expanding overall. The hotel industry has remained down more than 10 percent since the pandemic hit. Meanwhile, the short-term rental market is exploding with a more than 200 percent increase in demand. Nelson County’s newly modernized and reconfigured Rockfish Ranch takes advantage of that trend. The partnership with StayCharlottesville brings a wealth of experience to tourists and visitors that want to enjoy a luxurious getaway in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The private 600 acres of experience will eventually feature its own vineyards and tasting room and modern cabins, as well as an indoor/ outdoor event venue. Restaurateurs, too, are responding to the public clamor to get out and eat after 18 months of restrictions. Donna Waugh-Robinson, REALTOR® with Jack Samuels Realty has seen this firsthand in Orange County. “In the past three months there have been four quick transactions that involved upgrades or conversions into hospitality and res-

taurant businesses. One of them was only on the market for two days, which was remarkable because commercial real estate typically involves a much longer transaction period.” Waynesboro’s investments in infrastructure are paying off now with new restaurants in the Town Center and Phase 1 of the Ladd Elementary School project underway. The six standalone parcels will include restaurants, a gas station, and dental franchise to open next year. In Madison County, 29TastingZ opened last month on Route 29 in Rochelle. Offering sharing platters and a wine station, customers purchase a card and try a taste, half glass, or full glass of local and international wines and draft beers.

All Except Retail The retail industry is lagging the rest of the players in the commercial real estate industry. And may never catch up. Stoner says, “Retail will never go back to the way it was before.” The pandemic only accelerated the trend towards online and away from instore purchasing for many retail goods. As if to add an exclamation point, Amazon will open two “last-mile” delivery facilities in the area. One will be in the Ferncliff Business Park in Louisa County and the other in Waynesboro. These facilities transport goods from a distribution hub to the final delivery destination. The Waynesboro site is in the old K-mart on Lew Dewitt and Main. Gregory Hitchin, Waynesboro Director of Economic Development and Tourism, expects more than 100 people to be employed driving and handling freight. Both Louisa County and Waynesboro facilities should be operational in time for the Christmas shopping season. Another sign of the slow death of the traditional retail industry is the continued demise of Albemarle County’s Fashion Square Mall. The owner’s bankruptcy

AVAILABLE FOR SUB-LEASE Downtown Mall 316 E Main St, Charlottesville

Economic Engines Whether offices full of hungry and thirsty workers or apartments filled with individuals and families, businesses can only thrive if they have easy access to customers. That’s one reason mixed-use developments are the core of today’s urban design. Dairy Market is one of Charlottesville’s newest mixed-use developments. The residential portion of the development is not yet complete. Jodi Mills, Director of Marketing and Public Relations with Stony Point Development Group, says, “10th & Dairy is trailing a tad behind schedule due to supply chain issues. However, it should be ready for first rental move-ins in November.” The addition of 180 one- and two-bedroom apartments will support the office space, restaurants, and retail space already open in this historic rehab project. Holt says most of Scottsville’s downtown is mixed use with storefronts at the street level and residential units above. “Having people that live downtown has always helped these businesses stay viable, even through the pandemic. “As we continue to work through the best use for the old tire factory, we know that residential will be a critical part of the solution.” City Council recently approved a rezoning to Village Residential for the 19-acre parcel adjacent to the

in the restaurant and entertainment industries is modified “open carry” for adult beverages. Charlottesville is exploring this to jumpstart its businesses on the Downtown Mall. Legislation effective July 1 allows localities to create Designated Outdoor Refreshment Areas (DORAs). Adults would be able to purchase a 16ounce cup from a business that sells alcohol and take it into the Downtown Mall.

Lease Rate: $25 PSF (Annual) No CAM charges. Two floors (total of 8424 SF) were occupied by former tenant - Urban Outfitters. First mall level (3369 SF) was retail but could be converted to office. Likewise, the basement level (5055 SF) was retail and could be office, artisan studio/gallery, assembly shop, or other professional uses.

tire factory. “People want to move to Scottsville, but we need more housing. And we need more people to support the businesses that are here and the ones that want to move here. Our water use is only at 30 percent of our capacity and our underground fiber optics are underutilized. Scottsville is a great small town that is business ready.” “Commercial real estate is not experiencing quite the same escalation that single family homes are under-going,” says Waugh-Robinson. “But there has been a definite uptick in the past several months that I expect to accelerate. In Orange County we have commercial land on the U.S. Route 15 corridor that has been available for some time. Now interest is picking up. “In our downtown areas, businesses are selling, and new ones are moving in. What’s interesting is to see people moving to Orange County from other areas of the country to start businesses here.” The same thing is happening throughout the region. Stoner says, “Companies would like to get started here but the market has been so tight they haven’t been able to. This turnover due to the new office buildings and the vacancies on the Downtown Mall and elsewhere are opening things up. The Southern Environmental Law Center’s pending move to Apex Plaza next year is one example. They have been trying to consolidate for 15 years and now they can. And the space they leave behind makes room for another business to move in.” It’s been a year like no other and, just like in the residential market, commercial real estate is reacting favorably to this optimistic outlook. Carla Huckabee writes about high performing real estate.
