That was…it? I got the shot this weekend—a five-minute sit down with a chatty nurse in the back of a CVS, and I was on my way, silently becoming immune to the coronavirus. No trumpets sounded a joyful hymn of victory. No parade sprung up in the streets. I had no action hero moment, coolly walking toward the camera as the vanquished villain went up in a fiery cloud behind me. Instead I went home, lay on the couch, popped an Advil, and hoped the side effects didn’t hit too hard. This is the way the pandemic ends: not with a bang, but with a slightly headachy whimper. It’s pretty easy to pinpoint COVID’s beginning. The shit hit the fan for all of us at about the same time—March 11-13 of 2020. We all watched, together, as concern escalated, as events got canceled, as the world shut down. We will not all feel the pandemic’s end in unison. We’ll reach a critical mass of vaccinations over a period of weeks. Some things we love, like carefree indoor dining, will come back soon, while others, like fully fledged live music, might take longer. (Personally, I’ll feel like the pandemic is really over when I hear the first rippling chords in a crowded concert hall.) But we’re almost there, wherever there is, thanks to the vaccines and the people who have worked to distribute them over the last few months (p. 8). So for now, get your jab, and don’t be alarmed if you don’t hear the trumpets blaring right away—they’ll start up soon.—Ben Hitchcock

UVA remembers

Local media mogul Jerry Miller announced that he’s running for the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors. In a rambling campaign announcement livestreamed on his I Love Cville Facebook page, Miller said he’d seek to prioritize economic growth, job creation, and support for small businesses, as well as public transportation and broadband internet expansion. If you’re itching to head to the polls and cast your ballot for Miller, you’ll have to wait a while longer—the seat won’t be open until 2023.

legacies manifested in particularly complicated ways. They were everywhere and in everything. ...Memory of a complete history is what we were denied.” Throughout the program, multiple speakers emphasized that the memorial is the beginning, not the end, of racial justice work at UVA. “We feel this project has brought life and light to the buried and forgotten,” said Khalifa Sultan Lee, another former student whose work was instrumental in the memorial’s creation. “We pray everyone joins us in the consistent remembrance and the ongoing reparations work to come.”

Bugging out You might have heard some buzz about a wave of cicadas swarming across the East Coast this May. Billions of winged creatures—the ominously named Brood X—will soon wake up from their 17-year slumber and emerge ready to mate, lay their eggs in trees, and then burrow back underground. If that prospect gives you the heebie-jeebies, don’t leave town this spring. Northern Virginia skies will ring with the high-pitched wail of the insects, but central Virginia’s cicadas, known as Brood II, are set to snooze until 2030.

Governor Ralph Northam has endorsed his former boss, Terry McAuliffe, in the 2021 governor’s race. Northam served as McAuliffe’s lieutenant governor during The Macker’s first term, from 2013-2017. McAuliffe was among the many state political leaders who called on Northam to resign after Northam’s 2019 blackface yearbook scandal, but apparently any bad blood from that moment has passed. Northam chose to endorse McAuliffe over state legislators Jennifer Carroll Foy and Jennifer McClellan, either of whom would become the nation’s first Black woman governor should they triumph in November.

The Omni Charlottesville Hotel is suing the City of Charlottesville, reports The Daily Progress. In 2020, the city charged the downtown hotel $440,000 in taxes. On its website, the hotel advertises “Downtown Luxury, Southern Splendor,” but in court filings the hotel’s representation insisted that the place is actually not nearly so resplendent, and that the tax figure should have been closer to $350,000. City Council voted last week to retain an outside lawyer to argue on behalf of the city.

s millions of people across the country struggle to get back on their feet, an eviction crisis rages alongside the coronavirus pandemic. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s nationwide ban on evictions has been extended until June 30, and states continue to offer rent relief options for struggling tenants—yet these protections have not been enough to keep people safely in their homes, including in the Charlottesville area. From January 1 to April 12, 97 eviction hearings in Charlottesville resulted in 17 evictions, and 67 Albemarle County hearings led to 15 families being removed from their homes. One persistent problem with the nation’s eviction system is that tenants facing eviction often go to court without legal counsel. Those with lawyers are far more likely to remain housed, yet few can afford them. Meanwhile, a majority of landlords have attorneys with them in the courtroom. Since March, several advocacy groups including the Charlottesville Democratic Socialists of America, the Human Rights Commission, and the Public Housing Association of Residents have pushed City Council to commit $460,000 to establish a right-to-counsel program for low-income households facing eviction. The funds would go to hiring three full-time attorneys and an outreach worker to ad-

minister the program, which would be overseen by the Legal Aid Justice Center. “People who don’t have an attorney, their outcomes are much worse. So this will level that playing field,” says Brian Campbell, co-chair of DSA’s housing justice committee. According to the National Coalition for a Civil Right to Counsel, New York City established the first right to counsel program for evictions in the country in 2017. The program has been wildly successful—86 percent of tenants represented by legal counsel have been able to stay in their homes, and eviction filings have dropped by 30 percent. Seven other cities now have right-tocounsel programs for evictions. If Charlottesville moves forward with a right-tocounsel program, it would be the first city in the South to establish one. Last month, City Council discussed setting aside $117,000 of the $10.5 million it will receive from the American Rescue Plan next month to create a right-to-counsel program, which housing advocates immediately protested as an insufficient amount. During an April 5 council meeting, City Manager Chip Boyles announced that the city will use ARP funds to establish the program for at least two years. Yet it remains unclear if it will receive all of the requested funding. “Getting them to agree in principle to the $460,000 is important. It means the

rare type of blood clot, had significantly sped up the vaccine rollout. Before the pause, BRHD administered several thousand doses of that vaccine each week. Of the almost 7 million doses of the J&J vaccine given in the United States, six women, between the ages of 18 and 48, reported clotting symptoms six to 13 days after vaccination. Per the Virginia Department of Health’s latest data, around 20,000 Charlottesville residents—almost half of the city’s population—have received at least one dose of the three vaccines, and around 10,000 are fully vaccinated. In Albemarle, nearly half of the county’s population—around 53,000 people—have also received one dose, and around 30,000 are fully vaccinated. Across Virginia, about 3,100,000 residents—36 percent of the state population— have received at least one dose, and about 1,800,000—21 percent of the population— are fully vaccinated. On average, nearly 75,000 vaccine doses are administered each day. The commonwealth currently ranks 13th out of 50 states in percent of residents who have received at least one shot, according to The New York Times. In addition to administering vaccines at its Seminole Square and Fashion Square Mall sites, BRHD will continue to host at

least one vaccine clinic in every locality within its jurisdiction per month, in an effort to reach residents living in rural areas. To get the vaccine out to Black and Latinx communities, the health district has partnered with an array of community organizations to host clinics in neighborhoods, apartment complexes, churches, and other easily accessible locations. It’s also hired Spanish speakers to staff its COVID-19 hotline. It currently remains unclear how long it will take to vaccinate every adult in the health district and the state. “One of the things that we’re seeing is that some people who didn’t want [the vaccine] before, are deciding that they do want it now,” Elliott says. The CDC reports the current vaccine options are highly effective at preventing people from contracting the virus and developing severe symptoms, and may keep them from spreading the virus to others. The vaccine also offers protection against several super-infectious variant strains. Per the CDC’s recommendations, it is safe for fully vaccinated people to socialize without a mask with other fully vaccinated people in a private setting. They may also travel domestically and internationally without a pre- or post-travel test (depending on the international destination), and without quarantining after travel. However, fully vaccinated people should still wear a mask in public and around highrisk people, practice social distancing, wash their hands regularly, and avoid attending large gatherings, says the CDC. “It’s really important, while we’re all becoming vaccinated, to remember not everyone around us is and that we’re still in this,” says Elliot.

fter months of reporting on the local COVID-19 vaccine rollout, I finally received the email I had patiently been waiting for: I was eligible to get the shot. I scheduled my appointment and headed over to the vaccination clinic inside the former JCPenney at Fashion Square Mall the next day. The long Moderna line moved quickly enough, and I was out the door around two hours later, with a pink bandaid on my arm, a vaccine card in my hand, and a huge smile on my face. For many in the Charlottesville area, the anxious wait for a vaccine will also soon be over. On April 12, the Blue Ridge Health District moved into phase 2 of vaccine distribution, meaning all residents age 16 and older are now eligible to receive a free jab. Those who want one must pre-register with the Virginia Department of Health, and wait for an email or phone call from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention inviting them to schedule an appointment. Vaccine appointments may also be available directly from local pharmacies. “All vaccine appointments will remain by appointment only,” says health district spokesman Jason Elliott. “Maybe one day down the line we’ll have the option to expand to walk-ins, but that’s going to depend on a consistent supply [and] other factors.” Because the Charlottesville area has a high population of health care workers and senior citizens, it took the health district much longer to move through the rollout’s initial phases than other parts of the state, Elliott says. “One of the biggest challenges that we’ve had...is limited vaccine supply,” he says of the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines. “Even though we had staffing and people who wanted the vaccine, we didn’t necessarily have enough vaccines to make all of those moving parts come together.” There have been other kinks in the complicated rollout process. Since vaccines became more widely available, area residents jockeyed for position in the virtual vaccine lines, traveling to other localities to seek shots. Recently, some mixed messaging from the state sent waves of central Virginia residents south to a Danville mass vaccination site, only for the state to halt walk-ins at the clinic a few days later. In Charlottesville, vaccine seekers at the JCPenney site, and its predecessor in the old Kmart parking lot, have occasionally experienced long lines. There have been small-scale technical difficulties, too. Last week the Blue Ridge Health District tweeted an apology for an email that erroneously told users their vaccine appointments had been canceled. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which was temporarily halted on April 13 due to a

program will be robust enough to work,” says Campbell. “It’s not window dressing—this is an actual real program that will help people.” Since last summer, DSA volunteers have visited tenants with eviction cases on the docket in Charlottesville and Albemarle County, informing them of their legal rights and connecting them with rent relief programs. “A lot of people we canvass don’t know the [moratorium] is in place…[or] that they are being evicted until a DSA volunteer knocks on their door,” says Campbell. From July 14 to March 9, DSA observed 142 of the 259 eviction hearings that occurred in Charlottesville. Around half of the tenants did not show up, and half of those hearings resulted in an eviction judgment. Only around 8 percent of tenants who attended their hearings came with an attorney. These few fared much better in court— their cases were either dismissed or set for trial, instead of resulting in an eviction. Meanwhile, nearly 30 percent of tenants without legal representation were evicted, and almost 50 percent had their cases continued or set for trial. Charlottesville’s long history of systemic racism and wealth inequality makes the eviction crisis a racial justice issue too. More than half of the tenants facing eviction were Black, reflecting a much higher risk of eviction for Black families than white families. According to DSA activists, the federal eviction moratorium has been weakened by loopholes. Landlords are still able evict tenants for reasons besides non-payment of rent, such as noise complaints. They can also refuse to renew the leases of tenants they want to evict. In Charlottesville, LAJC currently takes on a limited number of eviction cases, typically those involving public housing residents. “The way that we’ve been doing it is kind of a triage approach, [helping] people who are in the worst-case scenarios,” explains Deputy Director for Advocacy Elaine Poon. Because Charlottesville has 500 to 700 eviction filings a year, “it’s just not enough people to handle them.” City Councilor Lloyd Snook says he recognizes the dire need for a right-to-counsel program in Charlottesville. While managing his private law firm, he often received calls from residents facing eviction who needed legal representation, but most of them could not afford it. He agrees the program should be run by LAJC, and hopes the city can collaborate with Albemarle County, which is set to receive $21.2 million in ARP funds. “When somebody is getting evicted, they may not even know if they’re living in the city or county,” says Snook. “We ought to approach the problem in a unified kind of way.” But to keep evictions from happening in the first place, housing activists continue to emphasize the critical need for affordable housing in the Charlottesville area. “One of the reasons that this is such a crisis is because people are spending so much of their income on rent,” says Campbell. “Affordable housing is the long-term goal.”

irginia’s marijuana legalization law will go into effect on July 1, making the Old Dominion the 16th state in the nation and the first state in the South to legalize adult recreational cannabis use.

Northam returned the bill with a series of amendments, and last week the legislature voted to approve those changes. The gov’s amendments accelerated the legalization process significantly.

The vote on final bill was deadlocked 2020 in the state Senate, with Democrat Chap Petersen of Fairfax joining all 19 Republicans in opposition to the legislation. Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax stepped in to break the tie in favor of passage. The bill does include a few contradictions. If possession is legal this summer but sales aren’t allowed until 2024, how are law-abiding stoners supposed to get their herb? One way is to pick up the fertilizer. It’ll be legal to grow up to four marijuana plants beginning July 1, and it’ll be legal to receive the drug as a gift from a grower.

of marijuana—but officially sealed containers don’t exist yet, as state-sanctioned distributors won’t be in action until 2024. The final version of the bill includes some important criminal justice provisions aimed at redressing the state’s long history of racist implementation of drug laws. The law says that all misdemeanor marijuana possession charges will be automatically expunged, and those with marijuana felonies will be able to petition for expungement. The General Assembly delayed making a decision on what to do about those currently serving time for marijuana-related crimes. The commonwealth stands to make a tremendous amount of money from taxes on marijuana sales, with early estimates suggesting $300 million over the first five years of legalization. The governor did not change the initially proposed disbursement plan for those funds. Forty percent will be devoted to preschool programs for at-risk kids, 30 percent will be placed in a new Cannabis Equity Reinvestment Fund, 25 percent will go to substance abuse treatment programs, and 5 percent will be left for public health programs in general. The General Assembly will continue to iron out details in the legalization process during its session next year. In a statement after the bill’s passage, Northam said he was pleased that the state’s “framework for legalization focuses on public health, public safety, and equity.” “Marijuana laws were explicitly designed to target communities of color,” he said, “and Black Virginians are disproportionately likely to be stopped, charged, and convicted. Today, Virginia took a critical step to right these wrongs and restore justice to those harmed by decades of over-criminalization.”

Both sides of joy Russ Warren draws on humor and intensity in ‘The Disciple’ By Sarah Sargent arts@c-ville.com

A

sense of joy permeates Russ Warren’s “The Disciple” at Les Yeux du Monde. The feeling comes from the jazzy Tex-Mex inflected palette— fiery reds and oranges, slicker yellow and bright turquoise—Warren favors. But it’s also conveyed by the sense of humor, surrealist flourishes, and simple, almost childlike forms that inhabit Warren’s particular brand of figurative abstraction. Nearly all the work in the exhibition was created over the past two years, and much of it touches on COVID-19. There’s an amusing portrait of an appalled looking Dr. Fauci, mouth agape and surrounded by floating viruses. The subject is serious, but Warren puts his own wry spin on it. “Deep into August” is another matter. A rare departure in its grim intensity, the triptych was painted when the pandemic was settling in and the future looked pretty bleak. “I was getting really tired of COVID,” Warren says. “I’d thought it would be gone by then, but it was in full force. I was working on each panel individually, sitting outside on a terrace where wrought iron furniture was casting these weird, threatening shadows. It was spooky and intense. The first panel is the pandemic going on, the center one, it’s letting up, and then boom, back to the pandemic.” By contrast, “Pineapple Ascending” offers hope with its rising symbol of hospitality and welcome, the promise of future interactions with other people. A Houston native, Warren grew up surrounded by a combination of Mexican influences and cowboy culture. Visiting his father’s office in the Southwest Bank towers as a boy, Warren was dazzled by an enormous mural in the lobby by Mexican artist Rufino Tamayo. “It was the first real art I’d ever seen and it became my idea of what art should be,” he says. Like any good Texas boy, Warren helped out at his family’s cattle ranch. That legacy is commemorated in a series of works on paper that he has been producing for many years. They feature line drawings of bulls and horses placed against a field of sumptuous color, and Warren titles them by number using Roman numerals, which he places on the animals’ rumps like brands. For the background, he uses liquid acrylic and livestock markers, applied and then scraped away, creating a rich, subtly mottled effect. “My family used to be a cattle family, in a real small way,” says Warren. “And they

“Things kind of went south during the painting process and the figure switched to become more androgynous. It came together so fast, I never thought it would become one of my favorite paintings.” used to brand everything. So from the time I was a little boy I was involved and, whoo—the branding was horrific! The Roman numeral brands and the livestock marker are pictorial devices that also reference Texas and this personal history.” Other artists figure prominently in Warren’s work. He’s co-opted the dots of Picasso and Braque Synthetic Cubism to mute down or heighten a field of color, provide surface variations, or represent things like stars. Warren is also drawn to pattern and texture, working stripes and scumbles into his picture planes. In “Oh Tamayo,” he mixes crushed glass beads into acrylic medium and black pigment to create a lustrous tarry background. The painting includes a collaged newspaper thought bubble in the body of the animal, meant to convey its frustration at not being able to communicate. “Queen Anne’s Revenge” features a mound of skulls, bones, and other body


CULTURE FEEDBACK parts, rendered in bulbous Dubuffet fashion with red and green outlines against a field of black. “‘Queen Anne’s Revenge’ sounds Dylanesque, which being a huge Bob Dylan fan, I like,” says Warren. “It’s an homage to the South Carolina Coast where we go often. Edward Teach, a.k.a Blackbeard, hid out there; Queen Anne’s Revenge was his ship.” The commanding visage of “The Disciple” is fractured into two distinct expressions. The left side appears alert and interested, while the right is affectless and blank. The two sides meet in the lower part of the face

“There is no better time to innovate in the live music business than right now.” MICHAEL ALLENBY

with the slightly pursed lipstick-red mouth. The bold palette pairs a rose and moss green background with black, white, and yellow ochre defining the head. “The disciple is me,” says Warren. “And the mentor was painter Earl Staley.” The two had a friendly yet competitive relationship that Warren feels was important to his development as an artist. “Things kind of went south during the painting process, and the figure switched to become more androgynous. It came together so fast, I never thought it would become one of my favorite paintings.” A series of small sketches reveal a bit about Warren’s working process and also showcase his line—something you don’t notice in his paintings. “I have different sketch books,” Warren says. “Some are for pen and ink, others for watercolor. I work in one or the other every day. It’s like a third cup of coffee. I’ll go into my studio, do one, let it dry, turn the page and do another. It limbers me up and affects my line and my mark and everything.” But the joy in the sketches, and that of the paintings, is tempered with the weight of reality—of being human. We get glimpses of this in the memento mori skulls, the specter of COVID, the branding references, the expanses of black that pervade certain works. These things bring an elegiac quality that gives depth and resonance to work that at first seems so simple and so sunny.

G. MILO FARINEAU

Russ Warren painted his way through the last 14 months of pandemic quarantine, resulting in his new show “The Disciple” at Les Yeux du Monde through May 16.

esty founder Michael Allenby wants to rock the concert production business. And he has no second thoughts about whether he will succeed. “It doesn’t make me nervous at all. It makes me enthusiastic,” Allenby says. “There is no better time to innovate in the live music business than right now. This is way more tremendous than the internet hitting the record business. ...This was immediate and swift.” The catalyst Allenby’s talking about is of course COVID-19. So, what’s Festy’s innovation? Allenby and the Festy team canceled their regularly scheduled outdoor festival last fall. The multi-day music, camping, and lifestyle mash-up had cast itself as somewhat unique ever since its 2010 inaugural. Founded with a jamgrass band with local ties, The Infamous Stringdusters, and initially held on the grounds adjacent to Devils Backbone Brewing Company, Festy set out to be a smaller, boutique event, crowd surfing over the monstrous music blowouts proliferating around the nation. But even a small-scale outdoor festival seemed ludicrous during a global pandemic. You just couldn’t bring crowds of people into a space while a highly transmissible virus ran through the community. The result was a series of 14 live music events from September to November at Chisholm Vineyards in Earlysville. Concertgoers bought tickets in pods of two to six and watched the shows from private boxes, roped off and six feet apart, from which they could make contactless food and drink orders. Restroom trailers in place of cramped port-a-johns completed the high-end outdoor COVID concert experience. “We thought, ‘what if you just took the VIP section from one festival set and made that the whole event?’” Allenby says. The rest of the fest—general admission ticket holders more interested in socializing than scrutinizing their favorite band’s every move—could casually watch the shows streamed on the internet. And hey, their running commentary, typed silently into the ether, wouldn’t even bother the superfans. Allenby says Festy’s new strategy was a success. Sales met projections, with more than 2,000 attending the series, and anecdotal evidence suggests folks enjoyed the format. “First live, in-person concert since January,” local artist Elizabeth Rodriguez said on Instagram during the October 17 Carbon Leaf Festy show. “It was outdoors, masked and socially distant, and it was awesome.”

Allenby thinks demand will be just as high as it was in 2020. One thing he figures Festy has going for it: His team crowdsources the festival’s artists, letting fans vote for who they want to see before the organizers reach out to book the bands. Not all the artists people want to hear will play intimate shows at wineries, Allenby admits, but he expects Festy’s stable of bands to grow in the months to come. Festy will also retool the online production of its concert series this year, offering livestream tickets at $10 per. Allenby and his team didn’t market online sales in 2020, he says, instead taking time to streamline and elevate quality. He says he feels like Festy now has a product worth pushing out. If the new Festy format feels like a longterm solution to a short-term problem, Allenby disagrees. “Festy is a sustainability brand, and live events—festivals as we know them—are inherently unsustainable,” he says. “Environmentally? There is no environmentally sustainable festival. And they’re not economically sustainable.” Speaking to the economics, Allenby says it’s just a matter of time before another pandemic shuts live music down again. Why continue following a business model completely at the mercy of infectious viruses? Others will certainly go back to their old ways. But Festy won’t be a part of it. “COVID set up a unique set of conditions so we could maybe start looking at the live music experience,” Allenby says. “There is a lot of weird history about how the live music business has been created. I have always fantasized about starting from scratch.”

April 14 – 20, 2021 c-ville.com

The whole scheme made sense in 2020, a year during which the live music events industry lost more than $30 billion, according to concert trade pub Pollstar, and any fund recovery was considered a win. But what about in 2021? While many early season festivals like SXSW and Coachella have been streaming-only or postponed, other big outdoor concerts—Chicago’s Riot Fest, Life Is Beautiful in Las Vegas, and California’s Aftershock, among others—are on the schedule to return by this summer or fall. Allenby has doubled down on his design. Instead of gearing back up for a Festy in the Blue Ridge foothills later this year, he’s expanded his concert series concept to two more markets. In Charlottesville, Charleston, South Carolina, and Asheville, North Carolina, Festy will host 150 shows from April to November. C’ville residents will get Carbon Leaf on April 17, followed by Saturday night shows (on a mostly weekly basis) featuring the likes of Kendall Street Company, Mipso, David Wax Museum, Molly Tuttle, Everything, Martin Sexton, and Eddie From Ohio. Some artists will do two shows, at 6pm and 9pm, others only one. Tickets range from $40 to $60, depending on pod size.

It’s just chicken, man—and I mean that as a serious compliment. Wayside doesn’t get cute. Its fried chicken is everything fried chicken should be: crispy on the outside, tender on the inside, salty enough to sting your lips, and greasy enough that the box gets damp. Scarfing down a couple of wings will leave you in a glorious, satisfied haze. The sides complete the picture. The coleslaw cuts the grease a bit, the beans add a little sweetness, and the cornbread fills in the cracks—if you still have room. The Jefferson Park Avenue shop has always done a brisk takeout business, so the pandemic hasn’t disrupted its usual system. The decadent chicken is affordable, reliable, and fast. You can’t eat like this every day, but it would be a sad world if you couldn’t eat like this once in a while.—Ben Hitchcock

The menu at the new Ivy Road House has something for everyone. The wide-ranging offerings from chef Christian Kelly (Maya) infuse traditional American fare with Asian and Mediterranean influences, and feature small plates, entrées, salads, a kids’ menu, and even family meal packages. I decided to order the best of all words—artichoke corn cakes (featuring cilantro and kimchi mayo), lamb meatballs with braised greens, tzatziki and harissa, and the (phenomenal) Winter Vegetarian Lasagna comprised of sweet potato, spinach, roasted red pepper, and herbed ricotta cheese. I recommend IRH for the sauces alone—all of them are housemade and unique. The bistro, located outside Crozet, opened for take-out in January and dine-in in March. There’s a price adjustment to account for the packaging costs, but the food is worth the few extra cents. Each takeout container is microwave-safe, to ensure a proper warmup if you have a long car ride home.— Desiré Moses

When your soul needs soothing, Angelic’s Kitchen offers a variety of fried foods, as well as homestyle sides. Unable to decide, I ordered Angelic’s Sampler Tray so I could try a little bit of everything. It came with fried fish, two crispy wings, macand-cheese, hush puppies, cheese sticks, and street corn fries with ranch and marinara. There’s enough here to share, and my roommates got to feast on what I unfortunately could not finish from my delicious meal. The hush puppies and mac-and-cheese were the best part of my order. (You know a hush puppy is going to be good when you can see real corn on the inside.) The mac-and-cheese was clearly made with love, and had gobs of melted cheese and a crispy top. Next time it will be a large order of mac, just for me. While I feel I got an ideal sampling of Angelic’s food, I’ll be back soon because I can’t stop thinking about everything else on the menu. The service was also excellent. Angelic herself enthusiastically welcomed me to her Dairy Market stand, which is open seven days a week, gave me my order, and was eager to offer me extra sauces. I felt like I was at home in my own kitchen.—Madison McNamee

Camp has become a staple of the summer season. Each year, millions of children, youth, and adults head to the hills, lakes, valleys, and parks to participate in the time-honored tradition of camp. And, while most people easily conjure up images of campfires and canoes, there is a lot more to the camp experience. Here are ten of the things you may not have known about the camp experience. 10. Camp is older than dirt, almost literally. Started in 1861, the camp experience turned an impressive 150 years young in 2011. The secret behind the longevity? “One hundred and fifty-five years later, there is a camp for every child,” said Tom Rosenberg, president and chief executive officer for the American Camp Association® (ACA). “from specialized camps to general, traditional camps, the essence of the camp experience is stronger than ever.” 9. Camp is worth its weight in gold, and then some! The camp experience is lifechanging – developing friendships and memories that last well beyond the final campfire. And, there is a camp for liter-

Education reform debate and concern over summer learning loss have pushed academic achievement into the spotlight. Research shows that participation in intentional programs, like camp, during summer months helps stem summer learning loss. In addition, camp provides

ample opportunity for developmental growth, which is a precursor to academic achievement. And, because of the “hands-on” nature of camp, often children who struggle in traditional education settings do well at camp. 1. Camp builds leaders for the 21st century and beyond!

tion option, allowing adults to try a variety of new activities in a safe and fun environment. Try this on for size! Camp is a great place to try new activities and hobbies. Afraid of rock walls? According to ACA research, 74 percent of campers reported that they tried new activities at camp that they were afraid to do at first. And, those activities often leave lasting impressions. In the same survey, 63 percent of parents reported that their child continued new activities from camp after returning home. Manners matter, and often linger. The camp experience teaches more than just archery or lanyard making. The entire experience is made of teachable moments, perhaps one of the biggest is how to live with a group of people. Campers learn to pick up after themselves, respect each other’s property, and to say “Please” and “Thank You.” Veggies taste better with friends. Hollywood and fictional novels may have given camp food a bad reputation, but in truth, camps are constantly exploring healthy food options, and often are at the forefront of things like allergy specific diets, healthy snack options, and vegetarian meals. According to ACA’s 2011 Emerging Issues survey, 90.7 percent of responding camps indicated that healthy eating and physical activity was an important or very important issue. If everyone else went to camp, maybe there’s something to it! Camp has played an important role in the lives of some of the most talented people in history.

By Rob Brezsny

Taurus (April 20-May 20): Taurus philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein was called a genius by Nobel Prize-winning author Bertrand Russell. His Philosophical Investigations was once voted the 20th century’s most important philo­sophy book. Yet one of Wittgenstein’s famous quotes was “How hard it is to see what is right in front of my eyes!” Luckily for all of us, I suspect that won’t be problem for you in the coming weeks, Taurus. In fact, I’m guessing you will see a whole range of things that were previously hidden, even though some of them had been right in front of your eyes. Congrats! Everyone whose life you touch will benefit because of this breakthrough.

Gemini (May 21-June 20): Why don’t rivers flow straight? Well, sometimes they do, but only for a relatively short stretch. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, no river moves in a linear trajectory for a distance of more than 10 times its width. There are numerous reasons why this is so, including the friction caused by banks and the fact that river water streams faster at the center. The place where a river changes direction is called a meander. I’d like to borrow this phenomenon to serve as a metaphor for your life in the coming weeks. I suspect your regular flow is due for a course change—a meander. Any intuitive ideas about which way to go? In which direction will the scenery be best?

Cancer (June 21-July 22): Cancerian poet Denis Johnson eventually became a celebrated writer who won numerous prizes, including the prestigious National Book Award. But life was rough when he was in his 20s. Because of his addictions to drugs and alcohol, he neglected his writing. Later, in one of his mature poems, he expressed appreciation to people who supported him earlier on. “You saw me when I was invisible,” he wrote, “you spoke to me when I was deaf, you thanked me when I was a secret.” Are there helpers like that in your own story? Now would be a perfect time to honor them and repay the favors.

Aries (March 21-April 19): “Today I feel the whole world is a door,” wrote poet Dennis Silk. In a similar spirit, 13th-century Zen master Wumen Huikai observed, “The whole world is a door of liberation, but people are unwilling to enter it.” Now I’m here to tell you, Aries, that there will be times in the coming weeks when the whole world will feel like a door to you. And if you open it, you’ll be led to potential opportunities for interesting changes that offer you liberation. This is a rare blessing. Please be sufficiently loose and alert and brave to take advantage. ger serve you, no longer excite you, and no longer fit your changing understanding of how life works. For extra credit, I invite you to dream up some fun new beliefs that lighten your heart and stimulate your playfulness. For example, you could borrow poet Charles Wright’s approach: “I believe what the thunder and lightning have to say.” Or you could try my idea: “I believe in wonders and marvels that inspire me to fulfill my most interesting dreams.”

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Virgo poet Charles Wright testifies, “I write poems to untie myself, to do penance and disappear through the upper right-hand corner of things, to say grace.” What about you, Virgo? What do you do in order to untie yourself and do penance and invoke grace? The coming weeks will be an excellent time for you to use all the tricks at your disposal to accomplish such useful transformations. And if you currently have a low supply of the necessary tricks, make it your healthy obsession to get more.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct.22): Kublai Khan, ruler of the Mongol Empire and China in the second half of the 13th century, kept a retinue of 5,000 astrologers on retainer. Some were stationed on the roof of his palace, tasked with using sorcery to banish approaching storm clouds. If you asked me to perform a similar assignment, I would not do so. We need storms! They bring refreshing rain, and keep the earth in electrical balance. Lightning from storms creates ozone, a vital part of our atmosphere, and it converts nitrogen in the air into nitro­ gen in the ground, making the soil more fertile. Metaphorical storms often generate a host of necessary and welcome transformations, as well—as I suspect they will for you during the coming weeks.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “Unexpressed emotions will never die,” declared trailblazing psychologist Sigmund Freud. “They are buried alive and they will come forth, later, in uglier ways.” I agree, which is why I advise you not to bury your emotions—especially now, when they urgently need to be aired. Okay? Please don’t allow a scenario in which they will emerge later in ugly ways. Instead, find the courage to express them soon—in the most loving ways possible, hopefully, and with respect for people who may not be entirely receptive to them. Communicate with compassionate clarity.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Sagittarian author Cristin O’Keefe Aptowicz wrote a poem entitled “Not Doing Something Wrong Isn’t the Same as Doing Something Right.” I propose that we make that thought one of your guiding themes during the next two weeks. If you choose to accept the assignment, you will make a list of three possible actions that fit the description “not doing something wrong,” and three actions that consist of “doing something right.” Then you will avoid doing the three wrong things named in the first list and give your generous energy to carrying out the three right things in the second list.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In the past few weeks, I hope you’ve been treating yourself like a royal child. I hope you’ve been showering yourself with extra special nurturing and therapeutic treatments. I hope you’ve been telling yourself out loud how soulful and intelligent and resilient you are, and I hope you’ve delighted yourself by engaging with a series of educational inspirations. If for some inexplicable reason you have not been

attending to these important matters with luxurious intensity, please make up for lost time in the coming days. Your success during the rest of 2021 depends on your devout devotion to self-care right now.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Sometimes when a disheartening kind of darkness encroaches, we’re right to be afraid. In fact, it’s often wise to be afraid, because doing so may motivate us to ward off or transmute the darkness. But on other occasions, the disheartening darkness that seems to be encroaching isn’t real, or else is actually less threatening than we imagine. Novelist John Steinbeck described the latter when he wrote, “I know beyond all doubt that the dark things crowding in on me either did not exist or were not dangerous to me, and still I was afraid.” My suspicion is that this is the nature of the darkness you’re currently worried about. Can you therefore find a way to banish or at least diminish your fear?

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): “Some people, if they didn’t make it hard for themselves, might fall asleep,” wrote novelist Saul Bellow. In other words, some of us act as if it’s entertaining, even exciting, to attract difficulties and cause problems for ourselves. If that describes you even a tiny bit, Pisces, I urge you to tone down that bad habit in the coming weeks—maybe even see if you can at least partially eliminate it. The cosmic rhythms will be on your side whenever you take measures to drown out the little voices in your head that try to undermine and sabotage you. At least for now, say “no!” to making it hard for yourself. Say “yes!” to making it graceful for yourself.

Sales at U.S. seed company W. Atlee Burpee & Co rose to their highest in the company’s 144-year history when the country locked down last March. Overseas, Russian demand for seed rose by over 20 percent, while Britain’s Royal Horticultural Society reported five times the previous rate of advice-seeking inquiries. These people are on to something. Here in Virginia, Historic Garden Week, an annual tour of outstanding private and public gardens hosted by the Garden Club of Virginia and its 48 member clubs, has soothed the souls and inspired the imaginations of household gardeners since 1927, along with those of kitchen and dining room table bouquet arrangers. A signature feature of the tour is its abundance of creative floral arrangements—an estimated 1,000 this year—highlighting seasonal native Virginia plants cut from Garden Club of Virginia members’ own gardens. This year’s local tour, presented by Albemarle Garden Club on Sunday, April 18, will focus on smaller than usual properties located within the city of Charlottesville, making it even more stimulating for avid gardeners with modest plots and immoderate dreams. Each belongs to a member of one of the area’s three Garden Clubs, Albemarle, Charlottesville, and Rivanna. The smaller garden sizes, says Michele Silver, a Master Gardener and Co-Chair for the local 2021 tour, “is something we’re really excited about, because they’re really gardener’s gardens. If you’re a plant connoisseur or just a tree and flower lover, you’ll love this.” Let’s look at each.

Lewis Mountain Neighborhood “To stroll through this cheerful garden,” says the 2021 guidebook, “is like walking through the pages of a wellcurated flower catalog.” Since certified horticulturist and professional gardener Leslie Harris moved here from Connecticut with her husband Jeff in 2014, she has transformed a plot of ivy, weeds and neglected trees into a garden deserving of a visitor’s attention. Today the carefully massed flower plantings—orange cannas and elephant ears alongside native blue wild hyacinths, for example—make for bright and bold color fields throughout the growing season. Beds and borders of shrubs, annuals and perennials surround the house. In front, tour-goers are greeted by large beds of blooming perennials. Walking trails along the back lead through wooded areas with over 150 rhododendron and azaleas, but many uncommon species as well, including glossy-leaved Fatsia japonica and Edgeworthia chrysantha. Other delights include an herb garden, a small kitchen garden, and a knot garden composed of boxwood which Harris propagated in her Connecticut garden and transplanted here. Not only is this garden lovely, it offers a lesson in urban landscaping as well. A former ugly drainage ditch bisecting the back yard is now a stone-lined stream and fishpond, fed by a recirculating pump. Ten compost bins are tucked away in the corners of the property for recycling garden waste, and a cistern and irrigation system catch storm water runoff from the

street. Pea gravel covers a plot of land that was formerly a basketball court. Like the other gardens on this year’s tour, this outdoor haven will inspire those interested in learning about designing outdoor spaces.

Park Street Specimen trees tower over shady beds of blooming shrubs and perennials at Mary and Dick Howard’s home on Park Street. The 100-year-old, Georgian-style house has had only a few owners, and many original trees and shrubs survive from the 1920s. Dick, a Constitutional

law professor at UVA, bought the property in 1965. Mary has been tending the garden since the early 1980s. Its most impressive sight is a massive American elm, one of the oldest and largest surviving elm trees in Virginia, whose beautiful canopy extends over the neighboring property. Below is a large, shady bed of white-blooming shrubs and flowers; chairs set on a stone base are covered with mosses collected from elsewhere on the property. The Howard’s tallest tree is a Metasequoia, or dawn redwood, which they purchased as a one-foot sapling at one of the premier

horticultural display gardens in the country, Longwood Gardens in West Chester County, Pennsylvania. It has grown at a steady clip of six feet per year. Other noteworthy trees on the property include a mature Japanese umbrella pine, a dove tree (native to South Central and Southwest China), an American yellowwood, and many different types of magnolia. A predominantly white and green color theme unifies the landscape design. The flower beds are planted with daffodils and tulips, a variety of other perennials, roses and mature shrubs, while the beds around the lawn are edged

with shade-loving plants like begonia, fern, hosta, toad lilies, and periwinkle. Larger beds feature understory trees and generous shrubs. The large 19th-century gazebo was originally from Augusta County. Visitors will also find an old English fountain, a small fishpond, and a potting shed, which is a reproduction of a smokehouse at the Governor’s Palace in Williamsburg. Many follies, fountains, statuary and relics from the couple’s travels add further charm.

Barracks/Rugby Neighborhood Formal landscaping in front and a private Asian-influenced garden to the rear beautifully complement this corner lot, Nantucket-style shingle home in the Barracks and Rugby Road neighborhood. Purchased in 2006, it was transformed within four years from a typical city yard, with grass and old trees, into a sophisticated, showcase tree and plant garden.

Viewed from the street, the landscaping harmonizes beautifully with the home’s blue-gray shingles. Mature Japanese maples and other small trees at the front of the house anchor beds filled with tulips, daffodils and a large collection of perennials; a geometric boxwood hedge completes the design. From an arched gate, a path leads around the side of the house, where the vibrant plantings in the front give way to a different and more serene aesthetic in back, suitable for peaceful, leisurely walks, or a quiet meditation accompanied by a cup of green tea. A large collection of Japanese maples, a pleasure to contemplate in all seasons, offers contrasting forms and textures and complementary shades of green. Swaths of ornamental grasses, including Japanese acorus, continue the Asian theme, while a fern grotto features an ostrich fern and other unusual specimens such as ‘Dre’s Dagger.’ Raised beds remi-

The 2021 Charlottesville-Albemarle tour may be only one day, but it’s packed full. “All three gardens are going to have something extra in them for visitors to enjoy,” Silver promises. “Pour la Maison Tabletop & Home Décor Charlottesville will display a tablescape in one garden, and Caspari will display one in another. They’ll be set up like someone is coming over for afternoon tea or cocktails. In the other garden, Albemarle Garden Club is going to be doing something very special as well.” In addition to the featured gardens, tour-goers will enjoy Floralscapes, a display organized by Caspari and on view at Tour Headquarters at Zehmer Hall as well as in all the featured gardens. J.W. Townsend Landscapes will provide demonstrations at Tour Headquarters, the Charlottesville Visitors Bureau will have representation, and the Simeon Market food truck will serve from 9 a.m.

Since that first Historic Garden Club event 94 years ago—a flower show that raised $7,000 to save trees Thomas Jefferson planted at Monticello—the Club has contributed $17 million to preservation and restoration of such treasured Virginia sites as Mount Vernon, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, and the Pavilion Gardens at the University of Virginia. Tour proceeds currently fund work at more than 40 of Virginia’s historic public gardens and landscapes, plus a research fellowship program and a new initiative with Virginia’s state parks. Its economic impact on the state of Virginia since 1969 alone totals $518 million. Women like Silver and Cherry who dream and plan and present this much anticipated event are carrying on a proud tradition of not only creativity but community service as well. “When the Garden Club of Virginia was formed in the 1920s,” Silver notes, “women had just

gotten the right to vote. Up until that point, a garden club was one of the few ways women could join together and effect change in their communities.” “From its very inception,” reads an early Club statement, “the Federation has stood for good roads, conservation of native trees and flowers, intelligent warfare against plant pests, and the abolition of the disfiguring billboard. This body of intelligent women has been a potent influence in the life of the state for the conservation of native beauty and the preservation of its historic homes and gardens.” “A committee was formed on the re-

striction of billboards, but met resistance with the General Assembly,” Silver says. “The campaign continued, and the General Assembly resisted again. Legend has it that members with their axes could be seen along the roadsides chopping down the offensive signs. Dogwoods were planted in their place.” It’s a story to warm the hearts of gardeners in an age that is community minded and environmentally responsible thanks in part to the pioneering courage of women like those early Garden Club of Virginia members. And it’s spirit that still animates the club today. “Five years ago, the Garden Club of Virginia pledged $500,000 to the state park,” Cherry says. “That’s an ongoing commission. Through Historic Garden Week the Club funds three different fellowship and restores 39 properties within the state. Locally they are Monticello and the UVA Pavilion.” Among the local community projects Albemarle Garden Club itself funds and conducts is the entrance garden at Route 29 and Fontaine. “In the last two years,” Cherry adds, “we’ve also been putting a fence up at the Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry on Lamb’s Road near Albemarle High School, making some beds, and sprucing it up with plants.” Beautification, edification, and pure delight—fruits all of Historic Garden Week. This unusual year’s “week” is Sunday, April 18, and “our fingers are crossed,” Silver says, “that it’s a sunny day.”

niscent of islands in the grass are bisected by stone walking paths, and a stone-lined dry creek, planted with Viburnum and camellia and other shrubs, runs along the back. A high hedge of cryptomeria and arborvitae provides privacy and a sense of seclusion. “The front of the garden,” says tour Co-Chair Robin Cherry, “is very formal, loaded with a lot of color. Everything pops. In the back there are between 15 and 20 different Japanese cultivars. It almost feels like a Zen garden, it’s so peaceful.”
