THIS WEEK Hello, Charlottesville! Thank you for reading C-VILLE Weekly. This week’s cover features a portrait from the Holsinger Studio Collection, with a story inside (p. 18) about it being part of “Visions of Progress: Portraits of Dignity, Style, and Racial Uplift,” a new exhibition at UVA’s Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library. Seasoned C-VILLE readers might recognize the name Holsinger; we wrote about the project in 2019. But this new exhibit dives deeper into the lives and personalities of each photo’s subject to deliver a picture not just of African American life in Charlottesville’s past, but also of a community committed to controlling depictions of themselves. In the Jim Crow era, Black folks in America were rarely in charge of how they were depicted or represented—politically, socially, and culturally. For these historical figures to be able to choose how they dress, how they stand, how they look at the camera must have felt liberating. And for people today, generations later, to see that too is a testament to the enduring power of these photographs. For this story by Kristin O’Donoghue, we’ve also included a sidebar with a brief biography of one of the people photographed, Cora Lee Ross. Too often, historical narratives focus on the rich and famous of the world, but we can learn so much about our country’s past by studying individuals like Ross. Reading about her reveals that she, like many others in these photographs, was an extraordinary person in her own right. And she rightfully insisted that her portrait reflect that.—Richard DiCicco

our Albemarle County elementary schools—Greer, Mountain View, Red Hill, and Woodbrook—have been accredited with conditions for the 202223 school year, meaning their Standards of Learning exam pass rates in one or more student demographic groups did not meet state standards, according to a statement issued by the school district on September 22. “I own these results,” said ACPS Superintendent Matt Haas in the statement. “They are unacceptable and do not in any way reflect the efforts or abilities of our students, families, and educators. They do reflect the inability of our current systems to produce the results we are seeking and clearly demonstrate the need for these systems to immediately change.” In English, the SOL pass rate for the entire division was 75 percent, compared to a state average of 73 percent, but the pass rate was only 50 percent for Black students, and 51 percent for Hispanic students and economically disadvantaged students—all below the state averages for these demographics. In math, pass rates for these groups, as well as English learners, were also below state averages. Eight other division schools had at least one demographic that did not meet the state standard, but received waivers because they previously met the standard for three consecutive years. Within the next 30 days, ACPS will issue a request for proposals for an outside organization to audit the division’s staffing, reading

State police have identified 30-year-old Kevin James Esh of New Holland, Pennsylvania, as the pilot who was killed in a plane crash in Albemarle County on September 14.

IN BRIEF

On September 24, Albemarle County police responded to a shots fired report at Rio Hill Apartments at around 9:20pm, and discovered one person who had been shot in the parking lot. The person was taken to the hospital in critical condition, and later died of their injuries. The shooting appears to be domestic related and not connected to the September 23 shooting at Mallside Forest Apartments, where three victims were taken to the hospital for injuries, but were stable as of Friday morning. Anyone with information about the shootings is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 977-4000 or crimestoppers@albemarle.org.

A more humane approach Local program offers an alternative to the courtroom By Ezra Maille

Joe Platania, Charlottesville’s commonwealth’s attorney, contributed $18,000 from his own agency to fund the Albemarle Charlottesville Restorative Justice Diversion Program, which offers an alternative to prosecution and a method to repair harm.

ized, sometimes retraumatized. Restorative justice turns that on its head a little bit.” Shannon Neal, an assistant commonwealth’s attorney for Albemarle County, worked to secure funding for the program with EMU and Platania, who contributed $18,000 from his own agency. Neal says restorative justice offers a more humane approach than most criminal justice solutions. “Is it something that involves some harm where someone could make something right and there’s an actual human involved?” Neal says. “And is that person open and interested in a process like this?” In Julie’s case, she found it beneficial to meet with her offender. She says while restitution was important, once she met him, she understood he just made a mistake. With this in mind, she sought a resolution addressing his issues with masculinity and anger management with the help of the program. Maassarani says restorative justice isn’t new to Charlottesville, adding that the practice has Indigenous roots, exhibited in practices of Native people throughout history. When it was first introduced in the early 2000s, the program didn’t offer ev-

erything facilitators hoped. Limited funding, limited referrals, and the program’s narrow focus on youth cases resulted in its collapse, according to David Saunier, a facilitator for the program with extensive experience in restorative justice. “The criminal justice system is all about the offender,” Saunier says. “Restorative justice is much broader, about the community, community health and wellbeing and what are the needs of the victims.” An evolving political climate coupled with support from the commonwealth’s attorneys has been instrumental in the successful resurgence of the program. Additionally, the new model approaches restorative justice through a wider lens, something Saunier says is crucial to the practice.

ulie, a 21-year-old UVA student, was at a bar with her friends when she was physically assaulted. A stranger grabbed the baseball hat off her head, and when she attempted to get it back, he struck her in the face, before fleeing the scene and being apprehended by university police. After the incident, Julie, who asked that we not use her real name, was referred to the Albemarle Charlottesville Restorative Justice Diversion Program as an alternative to prosecuting her assailant. According to Tarek Maassarani, the program’s advisor, restorative justice functions as an alternative to the criminal justice system, operating through an agreement with the city and county. Attorneys bring the cases and, along with three coordinators, Maassarani assigns those cases to a pool of facilitators who help harmed and harming participants come to a resolution. “It’s meant to address the sort of root causes of the harm in the first place,” says Maassarani. “Things that would prevent future harm. It’s meant to address the needs of those who’ve been harmed, what would repair their harm.” The program operates with a memorandum of understanding between the commonwealth’s attorneys, the city, the public defender’s office, and the coordinators, allowing participants to speak with attorneys and facilitators freely without worrying that what they say may be used for subsequent prosecution. Once a case has been completed, facilitators bring it before the court to dismiss the charges. Maassarani works as a visiting professor at Eastern Mennonite University, and also teaches law at Georgetown University, where he met Joe Platania, Charlottesville’s commonwealth’s attorney. “The traditional model of prosecution is all centered around, appropriately so, the rights of the accused,” says Platania. The victims are “sometimes left feeling revictim-

“The last five years in our country have been tumultuous,” says Saunier. “August 12 in Charlottesville. George Floyd. There’s been just a significant number of cultural shifts and things that have taken place that have changed the landscape, and I think it provided an opportunity.” Maassarani says the new program’s efficacy can be traced to these changes as well as the evolution of modern restorative justice. Currently, the program has no specific criteria for eligible cases, leaving it in the hands of the attorneys. “We’ve mostly had adult cases,” Maassarani says. “It’s not limited to misdemeanors or what would be considered minor offenses, and that tracks the larger growth and acceptance of restorative justice on handling serious harms.” For instance, Maassarani says resolutions could include attending AA meetings, paying off medical bills, or attending an anger management course. The process and agreement remain completely in the hands of the participants and require a consensus to move forward. Julie’s case was resolved through her assailant’s participation in a mentorship program and fostering dialogue about masculinity. Restorative justice allowed Julie to see the man as a person and how the incident affected his life, something she says the criminal justice system neglects. “We know that our criminal justice system is deeply flawed,” says Julie. “Restorative justice can be associated with a softer approach, a weaker approach. What I would like people to think more about is who has autonomy in the situation, who has agency.” The program, being in its early stages, has so far completed 18 cases. Maassarani says the program has four active cases and two on pause due to the sensitive nature of the incidents. “We’re looking at prosecution being the diversion and restorative justice being the default,” says Maassarani. “When restorative justice doesn’t offer, for whatever reason, a satisfying option, then there would be prosecution.”

‘It’s scary’ Parents, activists push back against governor’s proposed transgender student policy By Brielle Entzminger reporter@c-ville.com

to not support transgender students at all. Even transgender students who are supported by their families may not have legal documentation supporting their gender identity. “Parents of young children are not going to have taken any legal steps probably,” says Sarah. LGBTQ+ activists stress the detrimental impacts that not affirming and supporting a child’s gender identity can have on their mental health. According to The Trevor Project, transgender children are more than two times more likely to have depression and attempt suicide compared to their peers. “Using someone’s name and pronouns greatly reduces emotional distress,” explains Mary Sullivan of UVA’s Teen & Young Adult Center. “For some young people, that’s all they really want in terms of a transition.”

“This [policy] could go as serious as a child taking their life,” says Charley Burton who serves on the Virginia LGBTQ+ Advisory Board and several other LGBTQ+ organizations. “You’re literally putting a child’s life in your hands and destroying it.” Legal analyst Scott Goodman expects the policy to face numerous legal challenges, and have some aspects struck down in court. “Federal courts have upheld students’ rights to use the bathroom that aligns with whatever their gender identity is,” he says, but there may be legal ground for the parental consent requirement regarding names and pronouns. LGBTQ+ activists also accuse the policy of violating the Virginia Human Rights Act, which bans discrimination in schools based on gender identity. If Youngkin’s policy is successfully implemented, Sarah hopes CCS will do “the things they need to do to help kids feel safe so they can focus,” she says. “If that means using a preferred name, then we use the preferred name.” “What we would hope to see is that there are teachers, school boards, and administrators who step up and say, ‘This may be a policy from the governor,” adds Nick Morrow of the Charlottesville Pride Network, “but we can create an inclusive environment at our school in a way that can hopefully mitigate some of the negative impacts.” To comment on the governor’s proposed transgender student policy, visit townhall. virginia.gov.

the law did not include an enforcement mechanism, according to Equality Virginia. Both governors’ policies do not address sports, which are subject to Virginia High School League’s rules. The league currently permits transgender students to play on sports teams aligned with their gender identity only if they have undergone sex reassignment surgery or been administered hormonal therapy “for a sufficient length of time,” per its website. In response to Youngkin’s proposed policy, both school districts reiterated their commitment to creating safe and supportive environments, free from discrimination and harassment for all students. Still, Sarah fears the range of negative consequences the policy could have on the safety and wellbeing of her child, as well as of other transgender students across Virginia. “If a teacher honors my child’s name and pronouns, is that teacher now at risk for legal action … [and] who’s going to enforce that?” she asks. “What happens when a teacher decides not to honor the name or the pronouns, or another student teases or harasses my child—are there still protections? Does anyone care if my kid is feeling safe?” The policy is rife with barriers for transgender students—some are not supported by their families, or do not want to come out to the them out of fear of punishment, preventing them from receiving parental permission. School staff may be required to out students to their families and others, and may choose

Charlottesville City Schools may have to change its transgender student policy, which allows students to be referred to by their preferred name and pronouns, and participate in activities and use facilities that align with their gender identity, if Gov. Glenn Youngkin has his way.

September 28 – October 4, 2022 c-ville.com

hen Sarah first heard about Governor Glenn Youngkin’s proposed transgender student policy, she sat down at her desk and cried. Her 10-year-old transgender child, who attends Charlottesville City Schools, was now in danger of losing critical protections and facing discrimination at school. “I realized that things are about to get really tough,” says Sarah, who asked that we not use her real name. “It blows my mind that the intention of the Youngkin administration is to harm kids, [and] have families like mine experience this stress—it’s scary.” Posted online on September 16, the controversial policy would force transgender students to participate in school programing and use facilities, like bathrooms and locker rooms, based on the sex they were assigned at birth. School staff would also be prohibited from concealing information about a student’s gender from their parents, and from referring to transgender students by their preferred name and pronouns—unless a parent submits legal documentation of their gender identity, and requests in writing that their child’s name and gender be changed on official school records. Even with parental permission, staff would not be required to use a student’s name and pronouns if it goes against their personal or religious beliefs, says the policy, citing constitutional free speech rights. The policy is subject to a 30-day public comment period, which began on September 26, after which Superintendent of Public Instruction Jillian Balow will decide whether or not to approve the policy. If it is adopted, Virginia’s 133 school districts must implement transgender student policies that are “consistent with” the governor’s guidance—a major rollback of protections that has sparked fear and outrage among transgender students, parents of transgender children, and LGBTQ+ activists and supporters across the state. Under these new rules, Charlottesville and Albemarle County schools would be forced to change their current policies, adapted this year and last year, respectively, which allow transgender students to participate in activities and use facilities that align with their asserted gender identity, and requires staff to address all students by their preferred name and pronouns—no parental permission required. Staff must address a student’s transition with their family, but also prioritize the wellness and safety of students who may face punishment if their families find out about their gender identity. These policies are in line with model guidance issued by then-governor Ralph Northam in 2020—however, 90 percent of state schools ignored or rejected Northam’s orders, since

Through a different lens Revealing Black portrait exhibition opens at UVA Library By Kristin O’Donoghue

John Edwin Mason, chief curator of “Visions of Progress,” says “the magic of these portraits is that you don’t see the oppression in them.”

nects the local history of central Virginia to national history. Linwood Stepp was one of those who left. Born in the Free Union district of Albemarle County to Lindsay Stepp, a blacksmith, and Jemima Stepp, a homemaker, Linwood served in France during World War I with the 349th Field Artillery. Stepp may have commissioned his portrait as a gift to his family. Less than a year after the photo was taken, he moved to Buffalo, New York, to work at a steel mill. He married Maggie Hansberry in Albemarle County in 1921, and the couple had three daughters. “The magic of these portraits is that you don’t see the oppression in them,” says Mason. “And that was intentional on the part of the people who had their images made.” Mason explains that the most attention has been paid to the oppressive side of history. “Here, we’re approaching history from a different direction.” Though the photographs were taken during the height of the Ku Klux Klan’s violence, they do not illustrate scenes of abuse. Rather, the subjects of the portraits are dressed beautifully to resist the commonly distributed racial caricatures produced at the time. “It’s really important that the job and status and oppression in Jim Crow are completely invisible in these pictures,” Mason says. “African Americans were not defined by their oppression.”

enry Martin stands tall in the photo, his eyes piercing and thoughtful, dapper in his jacket. Martin was born enslaved at Monticello in 1826. In the early 1900s, he was one of the most recognizable figures on Grounds. He rang the Rotunda bell, and was the head janitor at the University of Virginia. But most of the knowledge created by white people about Martin reflects their racial prejudice. The Daily Progress wrote that Martin was a “personification of the qualities that go to make the most faithful servant.” Martin, however, was well aware of how he’d been misrepresented, so he spoke for himself through portraiture. In the photo, part of “Visions of Progress: Portraits of Dignity, Style, and Racial Uplift,” a new exhibition at the University of Virginia’s Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library, we see a reflection of Henry Martin through his own eyes. And he is surrounded by nearly 100 portraits that similarly honor and express the personality and individual dignity of their subjects, defying a society and culture that denied them equal rights. “Visions of Progress” features photographs taken by Charlottesville photographer Rufus Holsinger during the height of the Jim Crow era. The images, commissioned by African Americans in central Virginia, are part of an exhibition that reveals new biographical information about the subjects unearthed over the past few years by the Holsinger Studio Portrait Project team. Holly Robertson, curator of exhibitions at the University of Virginia Library, designed “Visions” with the intention of making the portraits and their subjects “true to life.” The stories that accompany each image help to do just that. Typical sources, like military records, birth and death certificates, and census records, wouldn’t suffice. John Edwin Mason, the exhibition’s chief curator, and his team wanted to introduce these individuals as whole people. Was Henry Smith funny? Was Cora Ross kind? So the team asked the descendants of the individuals for help. C-VILLE Weekly documented this undertaking in 2019, as people were invited to Family Photo Day at the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center to help identify the photographed individuals. In the C-VILLE article, Mason shares that up until that point, the photographs from the Holsinger Studio Collection had not been presented in a way that represented the Black community of Charlottesville; rather, they portrayed “a very specific, very white image of Charlottesville.” “Visions of Progress” documents the stories of the African Americans who left central Virginia and flocked to cities in the North and Midwest during the Great Migration. In doing so, the exhibition con-

Henry Martin, who was born enslaved at Monticello, was described as a man of “true dignity.”

While the exhibition acknowledges the presence of the KKK, the effects of restrictive covenants, and the many forms of oppression endured by local African Americans at this time, the images serve as a form of silent protest against those injustices. “They are saying, ‘We are not who you think we are. We are not those stereotypes; we are not defined by our status in Jim Crow society,’” Mason says. This truth struck undergraduate researcher Ben Ross, too. “It’s easy to hear about the ways that the community was mistreated and oppressed and believe that they only knew hardship, but in reality this was a community full of love, dignity, and honor,” Ross says. Rufus Holsinger—Holly to his friends— employed up to 25 people in the 1920s. Most

of them took the photos included in the exhibition, yet we don’t know who they were. Mimi Reynolds, an undergraduate research assistant who’s managing the social media accounts for the exhibition, recently posted a Holsinger photograph of Susie Lee Underwood Henderson and her child on Facebook. A little while later, Helice Jones commented that the woman and child were her Great Grandmother Susie and Aunt Evelyn. “My hope is that the exhibition leads people to broaden their perspectives by uncovering this quiet yet powerful piece of history,” Reynolds says. Mason and library staff members urge anyone who might recognize ancestors or have any information about the portrait subjects to email the team at HolsingerStudio@virginia.edu. The project’s website, which is currently under construction, but soon will be ready for public consumption, is a place where the team hopes people doing genealogy will download the document listing the photographed individuals and their stories, and that they’ll identify their ancestors. This exhibition is for everyone, Mason says. Ultimately, he hopes that UVA “changes the way that everyone in central Virginia sees their history. We can tell a history of resilience, of people living complex lives in the midst of Jim Crow and living during the era of the New Negro.” And perhaps some people will even find their ancestors brought back to life.

Everything about Cora Lee Ross’ (1884-1969) portrait suggests that she was an extraordinary woman— strong, proud, and wise. Her life story confirms that she faced the triple challenges of racism, sexism, and economic exploitation with an indomitable spirit. When Ross commissioned her portrait from the Holsinger Studio, she lived in Charlottesville with her husband, James Lemuel Ross, and their five children—four girls and a boy. Cora was a housemaid, and James was a manual laborer. The couple would eventually have several more children—a daughter and two sons. Cora and James remained married until his death, in 1952. By 1920, the family had moved to a farm in Albemarle County. James supplemented the family’s income by working as a railroad guard. Cora assumed the duties of a farm wife and mother while also working as a housemaid. Cora returned to Charlottes­ ville in late middle-age, living in Fifeville with two of her children. Cora’s portrait befits a woman who had the strength to raise a large family while jointly running a family farm and the style of someone with cosmopolitan tastes. Nothing about it hints that she also spent much of her adult life working as a housemaid in other families’ homes. That is precisely the point. As the University of Virginia historian Kevin Gaines has written, “[t]o publicly present one’s self ... as successful, dignified, and neatly attired, constituted a transgressive refusal to occupy the subordinate status prescribed for African American men and women.”

Aging in the Suburbs: Is Our Community Prepared?

During the boomer generation, the suburbs grew into an ideal of American life as young families moved away from urban centers for more space, privacy and safety. And they fought zoning efforts to keep their beloved suburbs free from commercial development. Lovely oases with lawns and gardens, safe streets and cul-de-sacs where children could play, and a few cars in the driveway to get to work, shop or cart the kids around.

It was the American Dream. Flash forward a few decades and the dynamic of those suburbs has changed. According to a 2019 Harvard study, residents over 50 in lower-density neighborhoods across the country more than tripled between 2000 and 2016. According to U.S. Census data, Albemarle County’s 65+ population grew from 14.3% in 2010 to 19.7% in 2020, a 37% percent increase. That’s nearly double the

number of people 65+ living in Charlottesville. At the same time, AARP reports that 1 in 10 Americans want to stay in their homes as they age. But what if you live in a suburban home where there are no social services or public transportation nearby and you have to drive everywhere? Another issue -- suburban homes are often not designed to be senior-friendly, and retrofitting them can be costly. Then there are the yards to take care of, the garbage to haul out to the end of the street, and the constant upkeep and maintenance of owning a stand-alone home. And despite what you might think, boomers aren’t rich. According to a Pew Research study, almost half of the nation’s boomers haven’t paid off their homes, one in four has no retirement savings and 91 percent have less than $25,000 in assets. “By 2024, one in four people in our area will be over the age of 65,” said Marta Keane, CEO of the Jefferson Area Board for Aging and an organizer behind Charlottesville Area Alliance (CAA), a collaborative seeking to make our area more age-friendly. “And so we know that population is growing, and we know that people are choosing to age in place. That will require new programs and services.” A mission of the CAA is to work with localities to address this reality, from putting in benches with backs on them to improving public transportation and infrastructure. In Japan, where the aging population has increased dramatically, we can see how suburban life can change. For example, a suburb of Osaka began thriving in the 1970s, but today 4 in 10 people who live there are over 65. They recently had to install an autonomous vehicle service, a 7-seater,

driver-supervised golf cart guided by a magnetic track embedded in the streets, which follows specific routes and uses as its hub a recently developed central supermarket. Of course, propositions like that can be costly, especially for local governments already straining under costs for schools and basic government services. One study estimated that meeting the public transit needs of seniors wanting to stay in their homes would result in budget increases of more than 80 percent by 2030. “This is no longer about planning for a ‘future’ aging population; there is much work that must be done today to prepare for the age wave that we are in the midst of,” said Peter Thompson, executive director of The Center and a CAA partner. Technology has brought some relief to the situation. Self-driving vehicle technologies will allow people to drive safely longer, there are ride-sharing travel services like Uber and Lyft, and the tremendous growth in e-commerce and delivery services for everything from groceries to kitchen supplies makes it possible to avoid leaving home. Virtual learning and socialization, voice-controlled online assistants, smartphone technologies, and the fast-developing world of AI and robotics present ways for older adults to combat isolation, access services, and stay connected. Still, as Thompson pointed out, the impact of aging in suburban and rural areas is already upon us, and the need for localities to address the situation is only going to become greater.

Gary Clark Jr. tells it to you straight on his third studio album, This Land. “Fuck you, I’m America’s son. This is where I come from,” he sings on the titular lead single, a song that arose from an encounter with a racist neighbor at his ranch “in the middle of Trump country” outside of Austin. The record, which won Clark three Grammys, pushes past the bounds of modern blues and slides into rock, reggae, metal, and funk as Clark explores themes of parenthood, the justice system, and love. Highlights include the falsetto-filled “Pearl Cadillac,” the high-energy “Gotta Get Into Something,” and “Don’t Wait Til Tomorrow,” an R&B ballad with Latin influences. $45-75, 7pm.

ill Evans left a lasting impression on the Charlottesville music scene. After graduating from the University of Virginia in 1978, the innovative banjo player stuck around town and started a concert series at C&O Restaurant with Cloud Valley, his bluegrass outfit. The group, which also featured awardwinning bassist Missy Raines, would also host guest bands and recruit premier string acts, including Peter Rowan, Hot Rize, and Sam Bush and Bela Fleck’s Newgrass Revival, to share the bill. The series of gigs had an intimate grassroots vibe—with capacity at around 140 people—but it helped put Charlottesville on the map as a friendly stop on the national acoustic music circuit, and set Evans on a path toward a four-decade-plus career as a performer, composer, author, and teacher. Now, he returns to Charlottesville on September 28 to play The Southern Café & Music Hall with a six-piece group touring as the California Bluegrass Reunion. “We ran the sound, put posters up around town, and got to meet our heroes,” Evans says about his early career, during a phone interview from his current home in New Mexico. “And we had a great local audience. There was a really supportive environment for music in Charlottesville at that time.” While booking the C&O shows, Evans often found himself hanging out with the instrumental masters he admired, gathering knowledge during his formative years as a musician from banjo aces like Tony Trischka and J.D. Crowe. “These folks would oftentimes spend a few days with us, and that’s where musical associations really blossomed,” he says. “The bluegrass community, across generations, is really welcoming, so it moved us all forward professionally.” Cloud Valley toured nationally and earned slots at some of the top bluegrass festivals in the country. Evans says one of his favorite gigs with the group was opening for Doc Watson at Old Cabell Hall. After the band members parted ways in 1985, Evans eventually moved west to attend graduate school at the University of California, Berkeley. Music education and academic study have since remained big parts of his work. He’s written multiple books on banjo instruction and given lessons to younger successful players including Greg Liszt of Crooked Still and Chris Pandolfi of the Infamous Stringdusters. Evans’ long-running solo show, The Banjo in America, offers a historical tour of the instrument, tracing its roots in Africa to current styles of playing. A CD/DVD set of the performance, which covers 250 years of the banjo’s sonic evolution, came out earlier this year.

Banjo aficionado Bill Evans brings the California Bluegrass Reunion to the Southern Café & Music Hall on September 28.

“We ran the sound, put posters up around town and got to meet our heroes.” BILL EVANS The release adds to his lengthy discography, which includes a handful of solo albums and credits as a member of Due West and Dry Branch Fire Squad. During his time in California, Evans became embedded in the Bay Area’s progressive string scene, collaborating with some of the genre’s biggest boundary pushers, including mandolin whiz Mike Marshall and dynamic fiddler Darol Anger. Both appear on Evans’ guest-heavy 2012 album In Good Company, perhaps the most well-rounded look at his fleet-fingered prowess. On the record, winding instrumental compositions mix acrobatic fret work with nuanced, jazz-minded explorations. It features the multi-dimensional acoustic style that Evans will showcase in his return to Charlottesville with the California Bluegrass Reunion. The lineup came together as an offshoot of the California Banjo Extravaganza—another

one of Evans’ creative touring projects—and features an all-star lineup of Golden State pickers who boast stacked resumés. In addition to Anger, who’s spent time in the David Grisman Quintet and Republic of Strings, the show will feature renowned mandolin player John Reischman, a founding member of the Tony Rice Unit. Bass duties will be handled by Sharon Gilchrist, a versatile player who toured for many years in Rowan’s band, and additional fiddle power will come from Chad Manning, another Grisman alum. “It’s a superpowered bluegrass jetliner, especially with the double fiddles,” Evans says of the group, which is currently on an extremely rare East Coast tour. “It has a really big sound. We’ve all been around the block and most of us are bandleaders. The focus is on original material.” The show at the Southern is being presented by local radio station WTJU, where Evans hosted a bluegrass show for more than a decade. It’s another callback to his early roots. “When I return to Charlottesville it doesn’t feel like things have changed all that much,” Evans said. “For me, the landmarks are still there.”

A

s a founding father wine geek, Thomas Jefferson is typically the first person who springs to mind when discussing the history of our wine region. But it was Emma Randel who literally put Virginia wine on the map in 1982. Largely due to the efforts of Randel, who recognized the importance of the area as a unique growing region, Shenandoah Valley AVA was the first AVA in the state. Randel and her husband, Jim, are considered some of the original visionaries of the Virginia wine industry, having founded Shenandoah Vineyards in 1976, the oldest winery in the valley and the second oldest in the state. An American Viticultural Area is a federally recognized grape-growing region with defined boundaries. To achieve this, a region must show evidence of something distinctive and defining, such as climate or soil. Currently in Virginia, there are eight AVAs, a testament to the wide range of growing conditions that exist in the state, and the diversity that is possible in the local wine industry. Area wine-lovers are likely most familiar with the Monticello AVA, with Charlottesville at the heart and center of the region. Many may not be as familiar with the Shenandoah Valley AVA (it borders the Monticello region to the west), and the wineries that are a short drive away. It’s a scenic, exciting area that’s worth exploring—and it plays a significant role in both the history and the future of the Virginia wine industry.

The Shenandoah Valley AVA is also the largest in the state, bounded on the eastern side by the Blue Ridge Mountains, on the western side by the Appalachian and Allegheny plateaus, and spreading north into West Virginia. The region features limestone soil, warm daytime temperatures combined with cooler nights, an almost constant breeze, and much lower average rainfall than any other location in Virginia. Drier conditions, due to a “rain shadow” that exists between the Allegheny and Blue Ridge Mountains, help with the challenges of mold and mildew in growing grapes locally, and allows the production of high-quality grapes with less vineyard spraying. The result of this climate is wine higher in acidity and slightly lower in alcohol that often taste brighter, livelier, and leaner on the palate. This parallels the evolution of consumer preferences, as a younger generation seeks lower-alcohol, lighter-bodied, easier-drinking wines that don’t require years of aging. There is also value to be found here, as increased distance from major cities and lower production costs result in high-quality wines at relatively low prices. Many Virginia wineries not located in the Shenandoah Valley are sourcing fruit from the region because of these characteristics. It’s a trend that isn’t going away. There is growing demand for vineyards and land to plant future vineyards. So, look to grapes grown just to the west for fantastic wine to drink now—and even better wine to come. It’s clear that the Shenandoah Valley not only has a historically important place in Virginia wine, but also a promising future.

Brix & Columns Vineyard Owners Steve and Stephanie Pence began planting vines in 2015, and continue to expand their estate vineyards. The tasting room features mountain views, and is presided over by Wyatt, a black and white Great Dane who acts as unofficial greeter. Try the 2019 Chardonnay, which balances a full body with bright fruit flavor. Bluestone Vineyard Family owned and operated, the vineyard was started in 2008, and its name comes from the local slang for limestone, which can be seen at various places on the property. Winemaker Lee Hartman is focused on wine that truly reflects the Shenandoah Valley. His 2017 Houndstooth red blend won both a Governor’s Cup Gold Medal and the 2021 Shenandoah Cup. Jump Mountain Vineyard About a 75-minute drive from Charlottesville, Jump Mountain requires reservations and is open only on weekends. Some lesser-seen grapes are grown here including refosco, lagrein, and sagrantino. The core wine is cabernet sauvignon, which doesn’t always flourish locally, but good vineyard site selection appears to have made all the difference. The 2017 bottling impresses with structure and flavors characteristic of the variety.

BIT.LY/CVILLETWOSENTENCEHORRORSTORY


By Rob Brezsny

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): I invite you to be the sexiest, most intriguing, most mysterious Scorpio you can be in the coming weeks. Here are ideas to get you started. 1. Sprinkle the phrase “in accordance with prophecy” into your conversations. 2. Find an image that symbolizes rebirth and revitalization arising out of disruption. Meditate on it daily until you actually experience rebirth and revitalization arising out of disruption. 3. Be kind and merciful to the young souls you know who are living their first lifetimes. 4. Collect deep, dark secrets from the interesting people you know.

Sagittarius

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21): There’s an ancient Greek saying, “I seek the truth, by which no one ever was truly harmed.” I regard that as a fine motto for you Sagittarians. When you are at your best and brightest, you are in quest of the truth. And while your quests may sometimes disturb the status quo, they often bring healthy transformations. The truths you discover may rattle routines and disturb habits, but they ultimately lead to greater clarity and authenticity. Now is an excellent time to emphasize this aspect of your nature.

Capricorn

Aquarius

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): To honor your entrance into the most expansive phase of your astrological cycle, I’m calling on the counsel of an intuitive guide named Nensi the Mercury Priestess. She offers the following advice. 1. Cultivate a mindset where you expect

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh was born under the sign of Libra. He said, “The root-word ‘Buddha’ means to wake up, to know, to understand; and he or she who wakes up and understands is called a Buddha.” So according to him, the spiritual teacher Siddhartha Gautama who lived in ancient India was just one of many Buddhas. And by my astrological reckoning, you will have a much higher chance than usual to be like one of these Buddhas yourself in the coming weeks. Waking up will be your specialty. You will have an extraordinary capacity to burst free of dreamy illusions and murky misapprehensions. I hope you take full advantage. Deeper understandings are nigh. something unexpected to happen. 2. Fantasize about the possibility of a surprising blessing or unplanned-for miracle. 3. Imagine that a beguiling breakthrough will erupt into your rhythm. 4. Shed a few preconceptions about how your life story will unfold in the next two years. 5. Boost your trust in your deep self ’s innate wisdom. 6. Open yourself more to receiving help and gifts.

Pisces

(Feb. 19-March 20): Author Colin Wilson describes sex as “a craving for the mingling of consciousness, whose symbol is the mingling of bodies. Every time partners slake their thirst in the strange waters of the other’s identity, they glimpse the immensity of their freedom.” I love this way of understanding the erotic urge, and recommend you try it out for a while. You’re entering a phase when you will have extra power to refine and expand the way you experience blending and merging. If you’re fuzzy about the meaning of the words “synergy” and “symbiosis,” I suggest you look them up in the dictionary. They should be featured themes for you in the coming weeks.

Aries

(March 21-April 19): Poet Susan Howe describes poetry as an “amorous search under the sign of love for a remembered time at the pitch-dark fringes of evening when we gathered together to bless and believe.” I’d like to use that lyrical assessment to describe your life in the coming days—or at least what I hope will be your life. In my astrological opinion, it’s a favorable time to intensify your quest for interesting adventures in intimacy; to seek out new ways to imagine and create togetherness; to collaborate with allies in creating brave excursions into synergy.

Taurus

(April 20-May 20): Social reformer Frederick Douglass had a growlery. It was a one-room stone cabin where he escaped to think deep thoughts, work on his books, and literally growl. As a genius who escaped enslavement and spent the rest of his life fighting for the rights of his fellow Black people, he had lots of reasons to snarl, howl, and bellow as well as growl. The coming weeks would be an excellent time for you to find or create your own growlery, Taurus. The anger you feel will be especially likely to lead to constructive changes. The same is true about the deep thoughts you summon in your growlery: They will be extra potent in helping you reach wise practical decisions.

Gemini

(May 21-June 20): “Conduct your blooming in the noise and whip of the whirlwind,” wrote Gemini poet Gwendolyn Brooks. I love that advice! The whirlwind is her metaphor for the chaos of everyday life. She was telling us that we shouldn’t wait to ripen ourselves until the daily rhythm is calm and smooth. Live wild and free right now! That’s always good advice, in my opinion, but it will be especially apropos for you in the coming weeks. Now is your time to “endorse the splendor splashes” and “sway in wicked grace,” as Brooks would say.

Cancer (June 21-July 22): “Don’t look away,” advised novelist Henry Miller in a letter to his lover. “Look straight at everything. Look it all in the eye, good and bad.” While that advice is appealing, I don’t endorse it unconditionally. I’m a Cancerian, and I sometimes find value in gazing at things sideways, or catch-

Leo

(July 23-Aug. 22): Tips to get the most out of the next three weeks: 1. Play at least as hard as you work. 2. Give yourself permission to do anything that has integrity and is fueled by compassion. 3. Assume there is no limit to how much generous joie de vivre you can summon and express. 4. Nuzzle with eager partners as much as possible. 5. Be magnanimous in every gesture, no matter how large or small. 6. Even if you don’t regard yourself as a skillful singer, use singing to transform yourself out of any mood you don’t want to stay in.

Virgo

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In the coming weeks, you should refrain from wrestling with problems that resist your solutions. Be discerning about how you use your superior analytical abilities. Devote yourself solely to manageable dilemmas that are truly responsive to your intelligent probing. PS: I feel sorry for people who aren’t receptive to your input, but you can’t force them to give up their ignorance or suffering. Go where you’re wanted. Take power where it’s offered. Meditate on the wisdom of Anaïs Nin: “You cannot save people. You can only love them.”

ing reflections in mirrors, or even turning my attention away for a while. In my view, we Crabs have a special need to be self-protective and self-nurturing. And to accomplish that, we may need to be evasive and elusive. In my astrological opinion, the next two weeks will be one of these times. I urge you to gaze directly and engage point-blank only with what’s good for you.

September 28 – October 4, 2022 c-ville.com

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Let’s imagine you are in your office or on the job or sitting at your kitchen table. With focused diligence, you’re working on solving a problem or improving a situation that involves a number of people. You think to yourself, “No one seems to be aware that I am quietly toiling here behind the scenes to make the magic happen.” A few days or a few weeks later, your efforts have been successful. The problem is resolved or the situation has improved. But then you hear the people involved say, “Wow, I wonder what happened? It’s like things got fixed all by themselves.” If a scenario like this happens, Capricorn, I urge you to speak up and tell everyone what actually transpired.

Cat socializers allow our cats to receive one-on-one attention and interact with other cats. The socializers get to know each cat and talk about them with potential adopters.

All proceeds from the SPCA Rummage Store go to support our homeless animals in need. We need help sorting through donations and setting up displays at the store.

Our dogs need volunteers to help them get all of the exercise and affection they deserve! Dog Handlers are responsible for taking dogs on walks, to playgroups and other activities.

Our animals attend many fundraising and adoption events. If you like being out and about and around animals, this gives you the opportunity to do both!

apples are big business in Virginia; the state ranks sixth in the nation in apple production. Approximately $30 million is added to the state’s economy each year through the sale of fresh market apples and products such as applesauce, processed apple slices, apple butter, apple juice and cider. In addition, there are the tourism dollars, generated by the many regional apple festivals. Our more than 100 apple growers produce an average of 5-6 million bushels annually on more than 16,000 acres of land. Their most popular varieties include Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, Rome, Stayman, Gala, Winesap, York, Granny Smith, Jonathan, Fuji and Ginger Gold, but …... Let’s look around.

e like pumpkins for our muffins and pumpkins for pies and for our Halloween displays. We like apples for munching, and apples for pies, and apples for pancakes, fritters, candy apples and . . . you name it. If it’s sweet and it’s a treat, there is probably an apple variety. If the leaves are turning in Central Virginia, it’s time to carve and to bake, and first of all to visit our local orchards, and delight in their bounty. “Apples have been grown in Albemarle County since Thomas Jefferson’s time,” says Cynthia Chiles of Carter Mountain Orchard and Chiles Peach Orchards, whose own family has been continuously farming its land for over a century.

“He was a big horticulturalist and grew a lot of heirloom varieties of apples.” Perhaps the most curious, ambitious and eagerly experimental farmer of his day, Jefferson’s eight-acre, horseshoeshaped “Fruitery” at Monticello held 400 trees, two small vineyards, plus beds for strawberries, “berry squares” for currants, gooseberries, and raspberries, and a nursery to propagate plants and trees. Jefferson grew eighteen different varieties of apples, including the Esopus Spitzenburg, his favorite to eat, and the Taliaferro (now extinct), his favorite for cider. One year he also grew both white and black pumpkins—Zucche Bianche and Zucche nere. Nowadays, Jeffersonian pumpkins may still be found—they’re the ones carved with his likeness! Latter day Virginians share his enthusiasm. More than just tasting great,

Let’s start in Nelson County. Drumheller’s Orchard in Lovingston has been family-owned and operated since 1937, when Everette and Eva Drumheller purchased the property and planted peach and apple trees in its abandoned orchard. “My mother-in-law and father-in law bought this place,” Doris Drumheller remembers. “My husband went in business with his father from 16-17 years old until he passed away at 64.” That’s when Doris took it over, in 2005. “We’re just trying to carry on. My in-laws were the first generation, my husband was the second, and my son is with me now, so he’s the third generation. Now his daughter is working with us, so actually we’re into the fifth generation here. It’s hard work, but it’s a good life being on the farm.” Head out to Drumheller’s this time of year and you’ll find a variety of ripe

SILVER CREEK ORCHARD

apples: Stayman, Winesap, Rome, Black Twig, Fuji, and Granny Smith. Soon there will also be Pink Lady and Arkansas Black. Drumheller’s holds two apple festivals per year, one on the last weekend in September and another on the third weekend in October—that’s October 15 and 16 this year. Besides apples, apple butter, and non-pasteurized, preservativefree apple cider, you’ll find honey, side meat, country hams, pumpkins, baked goods, baskets and cookbooks, etc. The side meat and country ham are cured in southern Virginia. Drumheller’s apple butter comes, of course, from an old family recipe. The local Ruritan Club will sell barbequed chicken and barbeque sandwiches, plus hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, and drinks. Other vendors will offer funnel cakes, pork skins, apple dumplings, and Brunswick stew. But a festival is more than food—it’s also fun. Expect activities for all ages, including hayrides to the pumpkin patch, an apple sling shot, a kids zone, and good country music. “We have this thing called the Apple Slingshot,” Doris Drumheller says. “People just go wild about it.” For the price of a ticket, festivalgoers shoot small apples; sharpshooters win bigger ones. Then there is the Drumheller’s Corn Maze. “We go through and cut out a pattern,” she says, “and they pay to go through. We give them a little card when they pay. We put about ten stations in there and they mark the stations, and if they can find every station and complete their cards we give them a peck of apples.”

CARTER MOUNTAIN ORCHARD

Seamans’ Orchards Also in Nelson County, Silver Creek & Seamans’ Orchards (SCSO) is a family (or rather, families) affair as well, dating back to the 30’s. Today the orchard grows about 25 varieties of apples, including Jonathan, Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, Virginia Gold, Mutsu, Jonagold, September Wonder (Early Fuji) and Empire, and presses its own cider. Silver Creek and Seamans’ Orchard is open seven days a week; the Seamans Pumpkin Patch is open to visitors through the end of October; come pick your own apples rain or shine through October 22. Call ahead to see what varieties are available. The Seaman and Flippin families have been holding Apple Butter Makin’ Festivals on the first and third Saturdays in October for over 30 years. Festivalgoers also get to pick their own pumpkins and wander through a corn maze. Theirs is apple butter made “the oldfashioned way,” constantly stirred as it cooks in large copper kettles. The 2022 Festivals are set for October 1 and 15 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Graves Mountain Lodge Graves Mountain Lodge in Syria in Madison County is a rustic retreat that prides itself on down home hospitality, home cooked food, and a beautiful Blue Ridge view.

tober 1 and 2, 8 and 9, and 15 and 16. Come pick your own apples, and enjoy live bluegrass music and clogging, plus the hayrides, pony rides, and donkey and cart rides around the longhorn pasture. Kids will love the farmyard with its goats, pet pigs, and pet calf. Some 70 crafters and vendors will be on hand. Pumpkins, gourds, apple preserves, apple butter, and apple butter donuts will be for sale, as will fresh apple cider and Graves Mountain Squeeze hard cider, funnel cakes, Brunswick stew, barbequed pork sandwiches, burgers, dogs, pork rinds, kettle corn, french fries, and homemade ice cream.

The beer and wine tent will have hard cider on draft, Graves Mountain apple wine, DuCard Vineyards wine, and Beer Hound Craft beers.

Carter Mountain Orchard and Chiles Peach Orchard Albemarle County’s Chiles family has been growing peaches and apples since 1912, and first began selling them by the roadside. “My two great grandfathers planted our first peach and apple trees over in Crozet,” says fourth generation farmer Cynthia Chiles. Third, fourth, and fifth generation members of the family are still planting, pruning, picking, and

providing fresh fruit to Central Virginia and beyond. The Chiles family began operating Carter Mountain Orchard, just down the road from Monticello, in the 1970s, and began selling peaches and apples in 1974 after a bad freeze left them too little fruit to sell wholesale. Left with so little fruit that the usual picking and packing routine wasn’t worth its while, the family put an ad in the paper, set up a card table, scales and a cigar box—and hoped. It worked. They sold out, and what was meant to be a one-time, emergency measure became an annual April through November,

Up at Carter Mountain Orchard, with its 40-mile view and observation tower, it’s apple picking season. Specifically, that means you can now pick Ambrosia, Gala, Golden Delicious, Golden Supreme, Honeycrisp, Jonagold, Jonamac, and September Wonder apples. Carter’s is also the place to find pre-picked gourds, pie, and decorative pumpkins. Over at Chiles Peach Orchard, at the foot of the mountains in Crozet, look for the same selection of apples and pumpkins, plus zucchini and summer squash. Tickets are required to pick-your-own . No visit to Chiles is complete without a peach cider donut, a peach milkshake, or a soft-serve peach ice cream cone.

Peach butter and other preserves and goodies are for sale in the Chiles Farm Market and Bakery. Picnic tables, some covered, allow for socially distanced eating, and kids enjoy climbing on the small nearby stage. Carter Mountain Orchard is open every day of the week from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Chiles Peach Orchard is open Mondays through Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Sundays from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

bought a small farm in North Garden, named it Rural Ridge after Rural Plains, the Shelton family seat in eastern Virginia, and built their dream house. With the help of their four children, Bud planted apple, pear, peach, and cherry trees. Inspired by the heirloom apple tastings conducted at Monticello by author and apple historian Tom Burford, in 1992 the Sheltons purchased trees from Burford’s own orchard. Today Burford, known as “Professor Apple,” serves as their orchard consultant, and the Sheltons sell several dozen kinds of apples. In 2000 the family founded Vintage Virginia Apples, and in 2009 it opened Albemarle CiderWorks. Among their thirteen varietals on sale are Old Virginia Winesap (with notes of baked apple, cedar, and strawberry), and Brut D’Albemarle (a champagne-style cider crafted from the juice of Albemarle Pippins). Saturday and Sunday afternoons at Albemarle Ciderworks are for Live Music at the Orchard. Susan Munson and Frank Bechter, local songwriters who call themselves Mojo Pie, perform Saturday, October 15. C’ville Jazz Congregation visits the orchard on Sunday, October 16. Vintage Virginia Apples and the Cove Garden Ruritan Club will hold their 22nd annual Apple Harvest Festival, rain or shine, on Saturday, November 5 from

The Market at Grelen Many visitors to James Madison’s Montpelier estate in Orange County have a charming outdoor lunch at The Market at Grelen, only three miles from our fourth president’s home. Grelen is a 1,000-acre tree nursery and pick-yourown farm, with a European-style garden shop, a casual farm-to-table cafe, and hiking trails that connect to Montpelier’s own. Grelen is currently “loaded with apples, specifically Gala, Jonagold & Golden Delicious.” Pre-picked paw paws are also for sale, and pre-picked figs may be available by the time you get there. Pick Your Own hours are 9:00 a.m. to 3:45 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday.

He may as well have been writing about Central Virginia.
