Diversity Awareness Picnic by Leah Nanako Winkler

Directed by Michael Jerome Johnson October 7, 8, 2021 and 14 -16 at 8pm October 17 at 2pm Ruth Caplin Theatre It’s Diversity Awareness Week at JohnsonBrown University, but the employees of the tele-FUN-draising department are reluctant participants in the afternoon’s mandatory group activity.

THIS WEEK

Debates over the state of justice in Charlottesville continue. At UVA, the police department is expanding its jurisdiction, even as students try to figure out ways to minimize the need for cops in their community (p. 15). In the city, work groups are trying to figure out how to fulfill the new requirement for a mental health first responder system (p. 13). It’s been more than a month since the controversial police chief was controversially fired, and the postmortem is still ongoing (p. 14). Meanwhile, Virginia’s three-year marijuana legalization process is underway. Data from around the state shows that arrests are way down since simple possession became legal—and here in town, entrepreneurs are jockeying for position in the evolving legal weed industry (p. 18). Last summer’s protests felt like a transformative moment for justice in this country. But now, with the energy and the demonstrations in the rearview, we see how difficult it can be to actually make the changes that so many in this community agree are necessary. Bureaucracy moves in fits and starts. The system is pretty good at protecting itself. The road ahead is long, but moving forward is vital.—Ben Hitchcock

Also at Monday’s meeting, council voted to put $75 million into the city’s capital budget to renovate and reconfigure Buford Middle and Walker Upper Elementary schools. The vote is a major step forward in the years-long process. Last month, VMDO Architects, which has been tasked with leading the schools’ redesign, released three possible conceptual plans for how the rehabbed schools might look (left).

That represents a tiny percentage of health care workers in the state: Sentara, which operates 13 facilities around the state including one in Charlottesville, says just 13 of its 28,000 employees have resigned over the coming vaccine requirement. UVA has given its employees until November 1 to get the shot, or they’ll be heading out the door.

The proposed term of the lease is 40 years, and the Botanical Garden of the Piedmont will be allowed a five-year period to start construction of the garden, with an additional three years to complete it. At the meeting, several commenters spoke in favor of approving the lease. Now that the land lease agreement has been secured, the organization in charge of the garden can begin fundraising for the garden’s construction, said Executive Director Jill Trischman-Marks.

ity Council unanimously approved the lease of city park land to the Botanical Garden of the Piedmont at Monday’s meeting, a significant step forward in the decade-long endeavor to establish a garden in McIntire Park. Formerly called the McIntire Botanical Garden, the garden’s name was changed by the board of directors because the parcel of land on which the garden sits was not donated by Paul McIntire, but rather was bought by the city and added to the park in 1972. The Botanical Garden of the Piedmont was designed by the international, woman-owned landscape architecture and urban design firm, Mikyoung Kim Design, in partnership with Charlottesville’s Waterstreet Studio. “Much more than just a simple garden,” the Bo-

The second and final gubernatorial debate between Republican Glenn Youngkin and Democrat Terry McAuliffe was held last week. Candidates were pushed by moderator Chuck Todd on vaccines and education, and the two clashed on abortion, with Youngkin confirming that he supports a “pain-threshold bill,” which typically bans abortions after 20 weeks, and calling his opponent “the most extreme abortion candidate in the country,” while McAuliffe asserted himself as a “brick wall to protect women’s rights.” Youngkin maintained his position that vaccines should not be mandated, while McAuliffe called the position “disqualifying.” Early voting is now open.

Last weekend, the United States Postal Service issued an employee “surge” to Charlottesville, sending postal workers from around the state to the area to help clear the backlog of mail that’s plagued us in recent months. Senator Mark Warner informed Charlottesville and Albemarle County residents via email that additional mail carriers would be passing through mail routes multiple times over the weekend, including on Sunday, to resolve the issue. Warner says he’ll come back to Charlottesville soon to check on things.

On call City works to create a mental health crisis team By Brielle Entzminger reporter@c-ville.com

EZE AMOS

L

Last summer’s protests prompted Virginia legislators to pass the Marcus-David Peters Act, which limits the role of police during mental health crises.

“There have been times where I’ve found the police to be very helpful, [and] there have been times when things have gone horribly wrong,” said Anderson. “But I feel like when I’m in a crisis, I shouldn’t have to play Russian roulette with how they are going to show up.” Lieutenant Larry Jones, who works with CPD’s crisis intervention team, expressed his support for the Marcus alert system. Responding to mental health calls is often very time consuming and costly for police, he said. He suggested the department create a specialized mental health unit specifically for highrisk calls requiring police intervention. In order to establish a robust response system, mental health care professionals and facilities will need a lot more funding and community support, explained Region Ten Executive Director Lisa Beitz. In July, five of Virginia’s eight state-run mental hospitals stopped accepting new admissions due to staffing and capacity issues. Many people experiencing mental health crises have had to spend

days with a police officer in their local emergency room, waiting for a bed to be available at a state or private mental hospital. Representing the Imagining a Just Cville work group, which was organized by Mayor Nikuyah Walker last year, Neal Goodloe of the Jefferson Area Community Criminal Justice Board shared the results of his study on crime in Charlottesville over the past decade. Though reported crime has decreased by similar percentages among Black and white residents, Black people are more likely to be arrested and incarcerated, and white people are more likely to stay in jail for less than a day. Charlottesville resident Wanda Smith, Walker’s cousin, spoke about how her family has been impacted by mass incarceration. While her brother and sister were incarcerated for over a decade, she had to help raise her nieces and nephews, preventing her from pursuing her own life goals. Raylaja Waller of City of Promise discussed how seeing her

“When I’m in a crisis, I shouldn’t have to play Russian roulette with how they are going to show up.” MYRA ANDERSON, MENTAL HEALTH ADVOCATE

her recent firing—suggested the city create a diversion program that people accused of certain offenses could opt in to before being arrested or charged. City Manager Chip Boyles expressed his support for the recommendations and a willingness to get to work on them. “These are just really starting points,” said Walker. “There’s a lot of work still left undone, and those things are going to require some funding [and] whoever is at the table in the city to see the vision.”

The Strength of Advice® comes to Charlottesville.

October 6 – 12, 2021 c-ville.com

ast summer, hundreds of people took to the streets of downtown Charlottesville, demanding justice for Black people murdered by police across the country. Many protesters urged the city to drastically reduce the Charlottesville Police Department’s $18 million budget, and reallocate those funds toward community services, including mental health treatment. Thanks to new legislation, a mental health crisis unit could soon be coming to Charlottesville. In November, the Virginia General Assembly passed the Marcus-David Peters Act, named in honor of a 24-year-old Black high school biology teacher killed during a severe mental health crisis in 2018 by a Richmond police officer. The act directs localities to limit the role of law enforcement in mental health crises, instead establishing a Marcus Alert system to bring non-police responders into the fold. By July 2022, the city must create a 988 phone number for mental health crises, and develop a response protocol defining when law enforcement will—and will not—need to be involved in answering calls. In January, a work group—including city councilors, community leaders, emergency services professionals, and individuals who have experienced mental health crises—began exploring how to create a new mental health response system in Charlottesville. Last week, the group presented its findings to City Council, alongside the Imagining A Just Cville work group. Mental health advocate Myra Anderson, co-chair of the Marcus Alert group, explained how police have mistreated her during many of her mental health crises. She also highlighted the cases of Black people who were killed by police while experiencing a crisis, including Corrine Gaines, Deborah Danner, and Anthony Hill.

father go in and out of jail deeply affected her as a child, and she advocated for more grassroots re-entry programs. CPD intern Nancy Amin, a University of Texas School of Law student, highlighted the effects of officer discretion during arrests, using recent police department data. She described a traffic stop involving a white woman who admitted to driving drunk, but started crying and claimed that another CPD officer was her best friend. The woman was allowed to park her car and take an Uber home, and was not arrested. During a similar traffic stop involving a Hispanic man, the officer became impatient because the man did not speak English. The man did not understand the officer’s request for a sobriety test, but the officer arrested him for “refusing” the test, and he was found guilty of a DUI. (The charge was later dismissed.) To take discretion away from officers, former CPD chief RaShall Brackney—who continues to work with the group despite

VA’s police force has beefed up its presence on the Corner. The es­ tablishment of a new unit—the Community Oriented Policing Squad, COPS for short—comes after a year in which violent incidents around the uni­ versity have increased. Four COPS officers will patrol the Cor­ ner and surrounding areas between the hours of 7pm and 3am every Thursday through Saturday. The goal of COPS is to create a “sus­ tained police presence in those neighbor­ hoods where students live, gather, and integrate into the community,” according to a news release. The expanded police presence comes at a time when UVA students are advocating, in a variety of ways, for fewer police on and around Grounds. In its 2020 annual report, the Charlottes­ ville Police Department reported 292 calls for reports of shots fired, 42 percent higher than the year before and 37 percent more than 2018. Since the start of the academic year, nine community alerts have been sent out to students, alerting them of violent incidents in the area, including shots fired, aggravated assault, and prowling. The most recent incident occurred on September 27, when a student reported that she was being followed on 14th Street NW. On September 3, a student was struck by a bullet fired inside the popular student bar Boylan Heights. “While no amount of policing or oth­ er resources will prevent every criminal act, we will continue to work as hard as we can to keep our community safe,” UVA

President Jim Ryan said in a message to the student body following the incident at Boylan. In an email sent on Thursday, Septem­ ber 16, UVA administrators Robyn S. Hadley and Julie I. Caruccio noted the uptick in violence, and encouraged stu­ dents to take steps to keep themselves and others safe, including calling a safe ride, calling 911 when something seems “off,” and making plans for getting home before leaving for a night out. Meanwhile, C-VILLE reported last week on the school’s Young Democratic Social­ ists of America request that UPD stay away from the Multicultural Student Center. “We have an abolitionist mindset,” said YDSA Chair Sarandon Elliott. It’s not just activists calling for change: In its most recent budget, the UVA Student Council approved funding for a new pro­ gram called University Networks of Care, a police-free crisis intervention program designed to remove UPD officers from non-violent interventions, and instead dispatch counselors and medics. UPD’s Crime Prevention Coordinator Ben Rexrode hopes the COPS initiative will re­ duce violence by “building stronger rela­ tionships with the people who live, work, and visit these areas.” COPS will patrol the UVA Corner, Rug­ by Road, 14th Street, Madison Avenue, 10th Street, Wertland Street, and portions of Preston Avenue. Rexrode thinks the initiative will be successful, despite how the students might feel about it. “I am not anticipating, nor would I expect, any adverse outcomes from our efforts,” he says.

WORLD

few leafy green hemp plants sit on the second-floor windowsills in the Charlottesville Cannabis Club’s lounge. A puffy, white sectional couch fills the center of the room. The highceilinged space is a little brighter than the tapestry-draped basement you might expect at a members-only marijuana club, though there’s plenty of evidence that stoners dwell here: A bright green print of a weed leaf hangs on the wall, with bullet points taking visitors through a brief worldwide history of cannabis. Matt Long, the tall, stubbled, 30something proprietor of the month-old business, shows me around the lounge. There’s a projector aimed at a blank wall—for “Cheech and Chong, or a football game,” Long says. He points out the snack bar, where bags of chips and cookies are on sale for patrons who might get hungry. It’s four o’clock on a Thursday. Two men sit at the lounge’s table, swapping observations about each others’ vape pens, and a soft herbal aroma fills the air. A battered copy of The Rolling Stone Illustrated History of Rock and Roll sits on one coffee table, a box set of the complete works of Calvin and Hobbes on another. The Cannabis Club is a new venture, a result of Virginia’s stop-start overhaul of the state’s marijuana laws this summer. The commonwealth’s Democratic majority voted to legalize recreational marijuana sales starting in 2024. In the meantime, in an effort to depress arrests, Virginians are allowed to possess and consume marijuana in private spaces, but aren’t allowed to smoke in public. “Since you can consume in a private setting, we created a private members’ lounge,” Long says. For $200 per year, club members can stop by the rooms above Ten Thousand Villages on the Downtown Mall and smoke to their hearts’ content, before heading out, blearyeyed, toward Charlottesville’s restaurants, bars, and music venues. And anyone can come up to browse the glass-topped counMatt Long’s father, Allen, was featured on the cover of the first issue of The Hook. ter full of non-psychedelic marijuana-adjacent CBD and Delta 8 products. It’s a new business model for our stuffy old commonwealth. Long, though, isn’t exactly new to this game. In fact, he’s cannabis royalty.

All in the family

In the 1970s, Charlottesville native and Western Albemarle High School graduate Allen Long smuggled a million pounds of pot into the country. Allen flew rickety planes into the Colombian brush to pick up product. He nearly found himself on the wrong end of a Cuban-American smuggler’s gun. He made $25 million. He was the subject of a 2002 bestselling book, Smokescreen: A True Adventure, by Robert Sabbag. Allen Long—Matt’s father—attracted the attention of his hometown, as well. His face graced the cover of the very first issue of The Hook, the Charlottesville alt-weekly that published from 2002 to 2013.


In business

“I am doing some of the cannabis stuff to keep the heritage going,” Long says. “We have family friends and stuff, farmers in California that we’ve known for a long time. It’s a second-generational business now.”

Matt moved to Los Angeles after college to work in finance, but remembers visiting a hash bar in Hollywood and understanding the legal pot industry’s possibilities. When Virginia legalized growing industrial hemp in 2018, Long returned home and started his own farm. It’s called Smokescreen Farm, after the book about his father, and is the origin of many of the products for sale at the club. “I am doing some of the cannabis stuff to keep the heritage going,” Long says. And having dad’s connections is helpful. “We have family friends and stuff, farmers in California that we’ve known for a long time. It’s a second-generational business now.” Long hopes to turn his space above the mall into a fullfledged marijuana dispensary when it becomes legal to do so in 2024. The state will hand out a limited number of dispensary licenses, but the Charlottesville Cannabis Club will have a good shot at getting one. Virginia plans to issue some dispensary credentials through a social equity licenses program, designed to help people who have been affected by the racist enforcement of drug laws get a foothold in the new cannabis industry. If you’ve graduated from an HBCU,

Growing up

live in an “economically distressed” area, were convicted of a marijuana-related crime, or have a direct family member who was convicted, you can apply for a social equity license. Long, because of his father’s record, will be able to apply through this program. “People whose lives have been ruined by some sort of cannabis conviction—doesn’t matter what color you are, but specifically minority folks—they should definitely have a right to some sort of ownership in the industry,” Long says. At this point, the local CBD and cannabis industry is predominantly, if not entirely, white-owned. The committee engagement director for the city’s Chamber of Commerce says she isn’t aware of any Black-owned CBD businesses, and the Office of Economic Development doesn’t know of any either. The Charlottesville Black Business Directory also doesn’t show any businesses operating in that industry. In the few weeks that he’s been open, Long has attracted 45 members. He hopes to reach 150. He also plans to have live music performances and art exhibitions in the large showroom area, where psychedelic paintings hang opposite the glass case of products. Earlier this year, Long’s Smokescreen Farm paired with Three Notch’d to create a hemp-based beer. (Three Notch’d marketed the beer as a “big, pungent, super dank IPA.”) You’d be forgiven if you mistook Long for one of the many craft brew masters wandering around the central Virginia countryside. He’s a millennial white dude brimming with enthusiasm for his locally made product; he’s wearing a baseball hat and a T-shirt with his company’s name written in a curly font. Ultimately, the goal is to be the Devils Backbone of weed, Long says—“a solid operator in our own backyard.”

Preston Avenue’s Fifth Season Gardening sells all the equipment its customers need to get a home cannabis garden started.

Late afternoon light filters through the smoke of the members lounge. “It’s cool to be able to have a spot to duck in, be with friends,” says one club visitor, in between bong rips. “It’s gonna build a community.” The conversation soon drifts easily to recollections of exactly where everyone was when UVA’s men’s basketball team won the national title in 2019. A neon sign in the window reads “open” in looping green letters, advertising the club’s presence to passersby on the street below. The industry has changed since Allen Long’s time. “You don’t meet people like that anymore,” Long says of his dad. He was like a bank robber in an old western flick, someone who really did the dirty work, says the son. “Now it’s a real industry. People are seeing the recreational and the medical benefits, and the tax revenue and the employment that can come from this,” Long says. “The green wave is rising.”

The Charlottesville Cannabis Club isn’t the only local business that’s angling to benefit from Virginia’s new cannabis laws. The commonwealth’s new rules allow individuals to grow their own marijuana plants. That’s meant a big uptick in business at Fifth Season Gardening, which sells all the equipment you need to get your home garden started, either hydroponically or in soil. “People are so excited about their own personal growth,” says store manager Pam Scott. “We’ve been selling a lot of tents and nutrients and soils, and all sorts of equipment.” New growers can set up anywhere, Scott says. A 2 X 2-and-a half-foot tent—necessary to block out light at the end of the grow— will run you about $130, and the lights cost around $160. Fifth Season isn’t allowed to sell seeds— you’re on your own there.

The younger Long says he’s keeping everything clean. The Cannabis Club has a storefront of sorts, and a lawyer, and a UVA intern. “We are working with legal counsel, we’re trying to do things above board and pay taxes,” Long says. “I don’t want to go to jail.”

In his heyday, Allen “was spending his millions, doing coke day and night, wearing thousand-dollar suits, leasing a jet year-round and tipping the pilot $10,000 at the end of each flight,” wrote The Hook. He had “balls like a bull elephant’s—with charisma and cunning in the same large measure,” reads the back cover of Smokescreen. Eventually, Allen Long’s luck ran out. He spent five years in jail, starting in 1992, when Matt was a little kid. The Hook story portrays the recently-freed Long as a reformed man, participating in local charities and trying to raise his children the right way. Allen told The Hook that he’d send his kids to military school if they got caught smoking pot. He kept that promise—Matt did a stint at Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham before graduating from Western. The older Long wasn’t reformed, however. He got back in the game, and went back to prison. Allen Long did three more years for smuggling, starting in 2006, and passed away in 2012. Growing up, Long knew that his dad wasn’t like all the other dads in the carpool line. “The book came out when I was in high school,” Matt remembers. His classmates “made interesting remarks [about] it,” he says wryly. “A lot of them read it, and did papers on it—they’d turn it in for class,” says Long. “The teachers would stop me in the hall and be like, ‘this is not your dad is it?’ And I’d say, ‘No it’s not my dad.’” It wasn’t always easy. “There were times where it was shameful,” Long recalls, especially in the conservative central Virginia of 20 years ago. “‘Oh, you know, that kid’s dad is a drug dealer.’ That was a real remark from time to time.” “And he was a drug dealer,” Long says. “So what could I say about it?” The younger Long doesn’t remember his father expressing much remorse for the smuggling itself. “He was regretful of how much time he spent away, incarcerated,” Long says. “He fell into that industry, and fell in love with it, and became successful at it. When you become successful at something, it’s kind of hard to pull out of it.” Matt’s mother, Simone, still lives in the area. How does she feel about her son getting in to the business? “I think she’s proud of what we’re doing, and would like to see it continue,” Long says. “The cannabis industry, it’s always been around. So it’s good that it’s going legal.”

CHARLOTTESVILLE'S CITY COUNCIL WILL SOON VOTE ON A FUTURE LAND USE MAP THAT WILL AFFECT

YOU.

The new map calls for radical changes to our city's neighborhoods. These changes may destroy Charlottesville as we know it, leading to increased traffic, environmental degradation, destruction of tree canopy, strained social services, crowded schools, and significantly higher taxes. Proposed changes include: §

Elimination of all single-family and two-family zoning.

§

At least four and in many cases twelve units will be allowed on all single-family lots. Subdivision of lots will be permitted. Height and affordability guidance remain undefined.

§

Proposed “by-right” development means developers can build whatever they want, without neighborhood input or government review, as long as it meets the zoning code.

§

Proposed “affordable housing overlay” means developers can bypass parking, height, and street setback restrictions by meeting affordability criteria that remain undefined.

§

Selected neighborhoods will be subject to different zoning standards and restrictions explicitly based on racial makeup of population.

The new map has been developed in the absence of economic or environmental analyses and is dramatically more aggressive than any upzoning initiative in the country—including that of Portland, OR. It relies on a single, flawed approach to creating affordable housing. It is an experiment likely to have the following extremely damaging outcomes: §

Doubling Charlottesville’s population without appropriate upgrades to infrastructure, services, or schools. The city simply hopes that with the new zoning in place, developers will build approximately 2000 affordable housing units. If 10% of new construction is “affordable,” we’re looking at 20,000 new units—and 60,000 new people.

§

Failing to create affordability. 90% of the apartments built in Charlottesville since 2008 have been luxury; there’s no reason to think the current council will improve on this record. The new plan notes that affordable units will only be built after market-rate units. The Planning Commission’s consulting firm has already acknowledged that little if any affordable housing will result from this plan.

§

Incentivizing developers to tear down homes throughout Charlottesville’s neighborhoods.

Charlottesville’s citizens deserve better. We need a real plan and real solutions. Clearly, Council should consider addressing the issue of affordable housing directly, as communities from Blacksburg, VA, to Vail, CO have done. It should consider such tried-and-true alternatives as developing a sizeable community land trust, building affordable housing on city property, and redeveloping vacant commercial space in excellent locations. These approaches are well understood and have been successful in other communities. Charlottesville’s City Council has refused to listen to thoughtful proposals meant to ensure an affordable, livable, sustainable future for all of Charlottesville’s citizens. Why aren’t they serving the community that elected them? Contact Charlottesville's city councilors, planning commissioners, and consultants to voice your opinion: City Council: Lloyd Snook: lsnook@charlottesville.gov Sena Magill: smagill@charlottesville.gov Michael Payne: mpayne@charlottesville.gov nwalker@charlottesville.gov Heather Hill: hhill@charlottesville.gov Planning Commission: planningcommission@charlottesville.gov Consultants: engage@cvilleplanstogether.com Build Smart Charlottesville.

Anxiety disorder Dear Evan Hansen falters on the big screen By Deirdre Crimmins arts@c-ville.com

PERFECT WORLD PICTURES

Ben Platt took his leading role in Dear Evan Hansen from Broadway to the big screen.

ing by lockers and fellow students, and it feels plopped into this world without addressing the tension between a real school setting and the unrealistic behavior of a student belting out a song without getting a single glance from fellow students. Despite the production’s weaknesses in writing and direction, the actors are not part of the problem. As many online commenters have pointed out, Platt is far from high-school aged, but he’s still capable of stepping into Evan’s skin. Amy Adams, Julianne Moore, and Kaitlyn Dever add gravitas to their mostly simplistic characters, and are all capable singers.

Dear Evan Hansen PG-13, 137 minutes Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, Regal Stonefield 14 and IMAX, Violet Crown Cinema Perhaps the greatest offense in Dear Evan Hansen is the film’s glib attitude toward mental health. It deserves minor kudos for addressing how common struggles with mental health are among teens, but that’s where the concern and nuance end. The profound

struggles that led to Connor’s suicide are not discussed, and while a larger social safety net certainly benefits Evan, the notion that he could have been healed with a little more love is both inaccurate and offensive. The film never indicates that teen suicide and mental health are complicated matters that cannot be easily solved by getting more attention or more friends. Fans of the Broadway show may have enough affection for the theatrical experience to buoy them while watching Dear Evan Hansen, but new audiences watching the film will be met with a confounding and unsuccessful adaptation.

Many of the songs are performed well, but the way they are incorporated into the earnest film feels forced.

ear Evan Hansen is based on the hit Broadway musical of the same name, which won six Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Alas, the film does not ascend to the same heights as the stage production. As harsh as it might seem, idiot plot is a handy descriptor for Dear Evan Hansen. Essentially, idiot plots are ones where the characters fail to act intelligently—the kind where one small mix-up spirals out of control, seemingly beyond repair, when in actuality the resolution is obvious. In that regard, this is a classic idiot film. Evan Hansen, played by Ben Platt, who nabbed a Tony for his stage portrayal, is a loner in high school. He suffers from anxiety, is awkward socially, and craves popularity. Connor Murphy (Colton Ryan), a fellow student and borderline misanthrope, bullies Evan at school, and one day takes a letter that Evan has written to himself as an exercise from his therapist. When Connor kills himself later that day, the letter that begins “Dear Evan Hansen” is found on his body. High jinks ensue. As the misinformation spirals, it’s not played as a quirky mix-up or hilarious folly. Instead, the lies that Evan tells to the school administrators and to his and Connor’s family are shaped as kind, not selfish or harmful. Connor’s family makes Evan one of their own. Evan’s actions aren’t meant to be malicious, but on screen he comes across as callous and self-indulgent. The film also fails to successfully integrate the play’s musical numbers. Many of the songs are performed well, but the way they are incorporated into the earnest film feels forced. When we first see Evan, he is moving through his high school hallway, staring at his shoes, and avoiding eye contact. He begins the introductory number as he is walk-

Time stamp New show at Chroma sends a message of hope

T

he hollowing out of the U.S. Postal Service might not be the most dramatic thing that’s caused stress and anxiety over the last 18 months—but for Chroma Projects, it’s the motivation behind “Pandemonium: Postcards from the Edge,” the gallery’s latest installation. When co-curators Deborah McLeod and Sarah Sargent (a C-VILLE contributor) invited artists to reflect on their experiences during the pandemic, they thought postcards were the perfect medium for it. They’re “inexpensive, democratic, humble, and extremely portable objects,” the curators say. Plus, sending them in the mail supports the post office—an act of positive change in the face of grim circumstances. In answer to the call for contributions, nearly 100 postcards arrived, postmarked from around the country and the world. Each artist, whether sculptor, painter, or filmmaker, faced the same template: a small rectangle of paper not to exceed more than 4.25 X 6 inches. It pushed people out of their comfort zone, and functioned as “a metaphor for how we have all been pushed out of normalcy during the pandemic,” the curators say.

Artists used a range of mediums—charcoal, gold leaf, even embroidery—to transform their postcards into show pieces. Barbara Page’s “Where I Wasn’t 2020-2021” is a collage of antique stamps depicting tropical, faraway places that expresses longing for new scenery while trapped in social isolation. Alex Gould’s “Points” features watercolor drawings of two arrowheads, dated 7500 BC and 1200 AD, fol-

lowed by a vaccine needle, dated 2021 AD. It places this interminable current moment into a larger context, a reminder of the challenges we’ve faced throughout history. Lined up on the gallery wall, the postcards mimic dozens of Zoom boxes. Yet refreshingly, this Zoom screen is not a soul-sucking experience. Instead, it reflects back not our own preening image, but a reminder that even in the darkest of times, there’s opportunity for creativity and hope.—Alana Bittner

CULTURE SOUND CHOICES

Fellowman Walking Tours, Rugged Arts

Matthew E. White K Bay, Domino As the founder of Spacebomb, the hybrid studio, record label, and publishing house based in Richmond, Matthew E. White doesn’t have much downtime. For the past six years, he’s channeled his efforts into his role as a bandleader and producer. On the heels of this year’s collaborative release with Lonnie Holley comes K Bay, White’s third solo album (his first since 2015). With influences of soul, funk, and electronica, K

Bay boasts all the touchstones of a typical White production. Bursts of energy are interspersed throughout—from the appropriately named “Electric” to the disco revival “Let’s Ball,” which received a choreographed dance treatment for the music video. Plenty of surprises arise throughout this captivating listen, which blends modern and retro elements, making it a contender for one of the best albums of the year in the format (released 9/10).

Kate Bollinger “Shadows”(Single) Self-release Following last year’s full-length release, A Word becomes a sound,

“Shadows” is the first listen from a new batch of songs that Charlottesville artist Kate Bollinger cooked up during the pandemic lockdown. Possessing a dreamlike quality, the track carries the listener through breezy gossamer vocals and indie minimalism; it’s a promising preview of what’s to come from Bollinger (released 9/8).

Kendall Street Company The Year the Earth Stood Still: Inertia, What is Yes Records The Charlottesville alt-jam band has spent years building an audience through its festival sets and steady stream of live shows

around central Virginia. Now, the group is positioned for a wider breakout with its largest undertaking to date: a double LP titled The Year the Earth Stood Still. In June, the band released the first installment, Ninurta, with the lead single, “Say Hey!,” laying out a dystopian fantasy across straightahead guitar and piano lines. The second installment, Inertia, completes the series, with the softer, psychedelic “Livin’ on the Bone” leading the way. Taking on the collective experience of COVID quarantine, Kendall Street Company invites the listener to join in on a spaced-out romp through an alternate reality that becomes all too real (released 9/24).—Desiré Moses

Charlottesville-based rapper and producer Fellowman explores the racial, social, and economic disparities in our own backyard with his latest interactive album, Walking Tours. In conjunction with the musical release, Fellowman invites listeners to participate in a public art project by visiting eight different locations throughout Charlottesville that inform and correspond to the album’s tracks. Each site features a QR code that takes visitors to private links for each song—the only way to currently hear the album in full is to follow the map posted on the artist’s website and social media accounts, scanning QR codes individually. A physical release is forthcoming, but for now, the format of this digital release is intentional. And the impact is twofold: Listeners are able to experience the collection as Fellowman did (he came up with most of the album while on walks), and they are also forced to confront one of the album’s central themes of inequality by

acknowledging that navigating the city by foot is very different than by car (released 9/11).

EASTWOOD FARM AND WINERY Merlot Aged for 20 months in French & American Oak, notes of black and red fruits like black cherry and strawberry are pronounced on the nose along with notes of baker’s chocolate, spice, and vanilla.

HORTON VINEYARDS 2019 Rkatsiteli Rkatsiteli is an ancient vitis vinifera grape that can be traced back to the country of Georgia, located at the crossroads of Western Asia and Eastern Europe. This grape is very versatile as it can be used for table wines, liqueurs, fortified wines or sparkling. After extreme cold temperatures killed off some of Horton Vineyard’s vines in 1996. Founder Dennis Horton sourced some cold hearty Rkatsiteli given their late bud break gives it the ability to make it through freezing winters.

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

Special orders of Kilaurwen wines are available any day of the week to those preferring to arrange gate-side pick up at a date and

Wild Common 2018 2018 vintage is 100% Merlot, aged 20 months in a combination of neutral and new French oak barrels and lives up to the high standards set by our award-winning 2017 vintage.

REYNARD FLORENCE VINEYARD 2016 Recherché *2021 Governor’s Cup Silver Medal & 2019 Monticello Wine Trail Silver Medal* Produced in the Bordeaux style, the 2016 vintage is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. This wine is particularly well balanced with smokey spices on the nose, and earthy rich red and black fruit notes on the palate. Aged in both new and neutral French oak for over 20 months, it has a silky finish with soft tannins. The 2016 Recherché pairs wonderfully with both red meat and chicken dishes. Think of Boeuf Bourguignon, Coq au Vin, and Cordon Bleu. Bon Appetit et Santé! After 35 years of teaching French and being a lifelong Francophile, our owner wanted to make sure one of our wines had a French name. We decided to name our Bordeaux style red blend Recherché (re-shair-shay) which roughly translates to “highly sought after”. The French name is

also a reflection of our aspiration to create wine like the finest wines in France, specifically Bordeaux. We grow beautiful varietals and create blends from grapes grown in our vineyards. The wine is produced on site in our winery, centrally located in the Monticello Wine Trail. Visiting Reynard Florence We look forward to welcoming you to our small, cozy, and intimate winery. As you drive down our driveway, you will be greeted by our stunning mountain view. We are truly a hidden gem. Our service is warm, friendly, and you will likely have an opportunity to meet the owners and their two corgies Ti Rey and Brixie. Reservations are not required, and seating inside the tasting room is first-come-firstserve. We have lots of outdoor seating and space available on our front patio, back deck, and pergola.

By Rob Brezsny

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Scottish Poet Laureate Jackie Kay, born under the sign of Scorpio, writes, “It used to be that privacy came naturally to everybody and that we understood implicitly what kind of things a person might like to keep private. Now somebody has torn up the rule book on privacy and there’s a kind of free fall and free for all and few people naturally know how to guard this precious thing, privacy.” The coming weeks will be a good time for you to investigate this subject, Scorpio—to take it more seriously than you have before. In the process, I hope you will identify what’s truly important for you to keep confidential and protected, and then initiate the necessary adjustments. (P.S.: Please feel no guilt or embarrassment about your desire to have secrets!)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “All our Western thought is founded on this repulsive pretense that pain is the proper price of any good thing,” wrote feisty author Rebecca West. I am very happy to report that your current torrent of good things will not require you to pay the price of pain. On the contrary, I expect that your phase of grace and luck will teach you how to cultivate even more grace and luck; it will inspire you to be generous in ways that bring generosity coming back your way. As articulated by ancient Chinese philosopher Sun Tzu, here’s the operative principle: “Opportunities multiply as they are seized.”

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): “If you don’t ask, the answer is always no,” declares author Nora Roberts. In that spirit and in accordance with astrological omens, I urge you to be bold and lucid about asking for what you want in the coming weeks. In addition, I encourage you to ask many probing questions so as to ferret out the best ways to get what you want. If you are skilled in carrying out this strategy, you will be a winsome blend of receptivity and aggressiveness, innocent humility and understated confidence. And that will be crucial in your campaign to get exactly what you want.

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “Few persons enjoy real liberty,” wrote poet Alfred de Musset. “We are all slaves to ideas or habits.” That’s the bad news. The good news is that October is Supercharge Your Freedom Month for you Aquarians. I

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “Some people are crazy drunk on rotgut sobriety,” wrote aphorist Daniel Liebert. I trust you’re not one of them. But if you are, I beg you to change your habits during the next three weeks. According to my reading of the astrological omens, you have a heavenly mandate to seek more than the usual amounts of whimsical ebullience, sweet diversions, uplifting obsessions, and holy amusements. Your health and success in the coming months require you to enjoy a period of concentrated joy and fun now. Be imaginative and innovative in your quest for zest.

invite you to use all your ingenuity to deepen, augment, and refine your drive for liberation. What could you do to escape the numbness of the routine? How might you diminish the hold of limiting beliefs and inhibiting patterns? What shrunken expectations are impinging on your motivational verve? Life is blessing you with the opportunity to celebrate and cultivate what novelist Tim Tharp calls “the spectacular now.” Be a cheerful, magnanimous freedom fighter.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): The brilliant Piscean composer Frédéric Chopin wrote, “I wish I could throw off the thoughts that poison my happiness, but I take a kind of pleasure in indulging them.” What?! That’s crazy! If he had been brave enough and willful enough to stop taking pleasure in indulging his toxic thoughts, they might have lost their power to demoralize him. With this in mind, I’m asking you to investigate whether you, like Chopin, ever get a bit of secret excitement from undermining your own joy and success. The coming weeks will be a favorable time to dissolve that bad habit.

Aries (March 21-April 19): Aries poet Anna Kamieńska said her soul didn’t emanate light. It was filled with “bright darkness.” I suspect that description may apply to you in the coming weeks. Bright darkness will be one of your primary qualities. And that’s a good thing! You may not be a beacon of shiny cheer, but you will illuminate the shadows and secrets. You will bring deeper awareness to hidden agendas and sins of omission. You will see, and help others to see, what has been missing in situations that lack transparency. Congratulations in advance!

Taurus (April 20-May 20): “There is something truly restorative, finally comforting, in coming to the end of an illusion—a false hope.” So declared author Sue Miller, and now I’m sharing it with you, Taurus—just in time for the end of at least one of your illusions. (Could be two, even three.) I hope your misconceptions or misaligned fantasies will serve you well as they decay and dissolve. I trust they will be excellent fertilizer, helping you grow inspired visions that guide your future success. My prediction: You will soon know more about what isn’t real, which will boost your ability to evaluate what is real.

Gemini (May 21-June 20): Afghan-American novelist Khaled Hosseini writes, “People mostly have it backward. They think they live by what they want. But really what guides them is what they’re afraid of—what they don’t want.” Is that true for you, Gemini? The coming weeks will be an excellent time to meditate on that question. And if you find you’re motivated to live your life more out of fear than out of love, I urge you to take strenuous action to change that situation! Make sure love is at least 51 percent and fear no more than 49 percent. I believe you can do much better than that, though. Aim for 75 percent love!

Cancer (June 21-July 22): “Sometimes dreams are wiser than waking.” Oglala Lakota medicine man Black Elk said that, and now I’m passing it on to you. It’s not always the case that dreams are wiser than waking, of course, but I suspect they will be for you in the coming weeks. The adventures you experience while you’re sleeping could provide crucial clues to

The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® is full of flowers — each carried by someone committed to raising funds and awareness to help end this disease.

inform your waking-life decisions. They should help you tune into resources and influences that will guide you during the coming months. And now I will make a bold prediction: that your dreams will change your brain chemistry in ways that enable you to see truths that until now have been invisible or unavailable. (P.S.: I encourage you to also be alert for intriguing insights and fantasies that well up when you’re tired or lounging around.)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): “Don’t hope more than you’re willing to work,” advises author Rita Mae Brown. So let me ask you, Leo: How hard are you willing to work to make your dreams come true, create your ideal life, and become the person you’d love to be? When you answer that question honestly, you’ll know exactly how much hope you have earned the right to foster. I’m pleased to inform you that the coming weeks will be a favorable time to upgrade your commitment to the work and therefore deepen your right to hope.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “To be truly visionary, we have to root our imagination in our concrete reality while simultaneously imagining possibilities beyond that reality.” This shrewd advice comes from author bell hooks (who doesn’t capitalize her name). I think it should be at the heart of your process in the coming days. Why? Because you now have an extraordinary potential to dream up creative innovations that acknowledge your limitations but also transcend those limitations. You have extra power available to harness your fantasies and instigate practical changes. Expanded weekly audio horoscopes and daily text message horoscopes: Real Astrology.com, (877) 873-4888.

No Better Time Than Now

CAAR REAL ESTATE WEEKLY WWW.CAAR.COM

BY CARLA HUCKABEE

Aah, fall. Cool nights and golden days. Nestled in between the back-to-school frenzy and the pressures of holidays and wintering, there is no better time to fancy the joys of new homes and better living. Fortunately, the annual Blue Ridge Home Builders Association (BRHBA) Parade of Homes caters to our imaginations on October 9 and 10, and October 16 and 17, from noon to 5:00 p.m. each day. The fall timing isn’t an accident. “The Parade of Homes has always been a positive event for our area during the fall months,” said Suzie Pace, Marketing Agent with R.L Beyer Custom Homebuilders, Inc. Now in its 58th year, “it was originally scheduled to boost the market prior to winter. Today the market tends to be more consistent throughout the calendar year, but the Parade of Homes has grown into a community event that is attended by so many potential buyers and curious visitors.” Whether you are planning on buying a new home or looking for ideas for your next remodeling project, the Parade of Homes, sponsored by Nest Realty, will

inspire and motivate. It is truly the easiest way to see the new crop of homes, design trends and the best in energy efficiency and comfort delivered by local artisans, designers, and builders. Building on the success of last year, when more than 1,400 people toured the available homes virtually or in person, BRHBA is taking the same approach. Jenny Tapscott, Executive Director, expects to surpass even last year’s numbers. “Every home in this year’s Parade can be toured virtually. That makes it so easy for anyone contemplating an upgrade in their living situation to see each of our homes. Prior to 2020, many people had to pick and choose what they had time to tour. The virtual tours, sponsored by AirLens, LLC, enable you to see all these beautiful homes by just clicking on each Parade image to start the tour. “Of course, if you’re able to come in person, you’ll have a richer experience and get a sense of all the great communities in which these new homes are sited. We are completely sensitive to the ongoing impacts of COVID-19 and are incorporat-

distancing, recommended face coverings, and other precautions.”

By the Numbers This year’s Parade features 21 in-person entries and two additional entries that are virtual only. Additionally, every in-person home is also available virtually for maximum viewer flexibility at the Parade website (brhbaparadeofhomes. com). Select the 2021 Parade Entries tab and click on each image to experience the virtual tours. There are 11 builders participating in the Parade, one more than last year. Greenwood Homes, with two entries, is new to this area and has not participated in the Parade before. Two entries are available only online. Charlottesville Area Builders (formerly Jefferson Area Builders) has a 3,200 square foot modern three-story home and True Living, LLC is featuring a 6,115 square foot modern farmhouse. The Parade is not only for buyers with deep pockets. Yes, there are entries with prices over $1 million, but there are others priced in the upper $200 thousands. Single family homes and attached townhomes with cutting-edge features appeal to all levels of buyers with all kinds of space needs, from less than 1,400 square feet to more than 6,000 square feet. In addition to the individual homes in the Parade, one neighborhood is featured. North Pointe is being developed just north of the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Airport. Tapscott says, “With all the roadways in place, it is a great way

for interested parties to interact with the two major builders and developers of the community, Craig Builders and Southern Development Homes. It’s such an exciting time to get involved and make your selections as the builders are just starting to break ground. “One design center is also featured in this year’s Parade. Southern Development Design Center in Charlottesville is

a super-efficient way for homeowners or buyers to see lots of different options. It doesn’t matter whether you’re building or rehabbing, you can see the latest trends in fixtures, cabinets, countertops, and other interior and exterior features—all in one place.” For those Parade attendees planning their in-person itinerary, there are seven homes in the western region, with one in

Waynesboro and the others in the Crozet area. Five homes are in and around Charlottesville. The eastern area has seven homes covering Keswick, Palmyra, and Zion Crossroads.

No Better Time. No Better Tool. Anyone considering checking out the 2021 Parade of Homes in person or virtually, should make sure they take that step while the opportunity is available. Some potential buyers, when they hear how much the real estate market favors sellers, give up before they even get started. “In this real estate market right now, one of the hardest things to do is to take that first step,” according to Jeremy Rowe, Neighborhood Sales Manager with Stanley Martin Homes. “That’s one of the best things about the Parade. Even someone who doesn’t consider themselves a buyer can get out and see what builders have available now and what’s in their pipeline. You can do it without any pressure to buy, and, if you want, you can have complete anonymity while you explore new designs, existing homes, model homes, and get familiar with the quality of work by area builders. You can find out what it takes to make a home your own without making a commitment. There really is no better time than now, and no better tool than the Parade.”

“That’s one of the best things about the Parade. Even someone who doesn’t consider themselves a buyer can get out and see what builders have available now and what’s in their pipeline.” Stanley Martin has two homes in this year’s Parade, one in Zion Crossroads and one in Glenmore. Both are maturing communities in the eastern section of the Parade and deserve a second look for all they have to offer. Rowe said, “I invite everyone out to Glenmore to explore the neighborhood. It was established in the mid-2010s and there is still a ton of activity. But all that building means this community is close to being fully built out. If you haven’t been out recently, it’s worth the drive to see how much has changed and what the community has to offer before it’s too late. We have everything from main level living to three stories. And there’s nothing like being this close to Charlottesville and still being able to enjoy lots up to one third to three fourths [of] an acre.”

From the Ground Up If getting in on the ground floor of a new community appeals to you, don’t

miss your chance to be a part of North Pointe. The Parade’s featured community consists of 224 acres across from the UVA Research Park. The mixed-use community will have single family homes, apartments, condominiums, ample commercial space, and extensive amenities for residents to enjoy. Blissie Du Bose, Customer Representative with Craig Builders, explained, “North Pointe is an entirely new community and Craig Builders is truly honored to be part of it. We are currently selling from our on-site Sales Center and will be set up outside this year for the Parade as

we start to break ground on our Model Home. That way people get to see our floor plans, learn about North Pointe and tour the available homesites.” The roads are in place for North Pointe and both builders, Craig Builders and Southern Development Homes, are poised to begin moving dirt. The Parade virtual tour of North Pointe offers videos of the community and future animations. But actually walking the grounds and seeing what each view of the Blue Ridge might look like from a particular homesite can make all the difference in helping to see yourself as part of this

brand new community. Du Bose said, “I’m really hopeful that people will stop by to learn about this community that’s convenient to all things Charlottesville! “We will have a variety of floor plans coming up off the ground but we’re highlighting a new, single-family floor plan called the Afton. It’s 2,075 square feet (can get up to 3,396 square feet with a walkout basement), offers an abundance of living and has vaulted ceilings. It can truly fit any homeowner’s needs and the homesites will overlook a picturesque pocket park with attractive plants and trees.

the last 12 months. During the pandemic people spent a lot of time in their homes and we changed the way we live. You will notice in our designs, some areas that we focus on with those new lifestyles in mind. Our plans have walk in pantries, multi-use spaces such as second floor lofts that can serve as additional office or family room space. We have introduced the ‘pocket office’ as a dedicated space for taking a video call, participating in online learning, or working from home.”

“Located just off 29N, North Pointe will have a lot of amenities such as miles of walking and bike trails, nine pocket parks (featuring tennis and basketball courts, playgrounds, dog parks, etc.), a pool and clubhouse and a 24/7 fitness center. We are really excited to break ground on our Aftons in the next few months.”

New Builder in Town The 2021 Parade’s newest builder is Greenwood Homes. The company has two entries, one in Zion Crossroads and the other in Glenbrook at Foothill Crossing in Crozet. Partner Chris Sylves said, “Greenwood Homes was launched in the second half of 2020, and this will be our first Parade

of Homes as Greenwood. Our team is comprised of local industry professionals that have been participating in the Parade for over 15 years and we are excited to unveil our brand and product as a semicustom builder. “This will be a chance for Parade attendees to view brand new architecture and design that has just been created in

Hillsdale Conference Center

Since the physical homes are available to visit for the next two October weekends and the virtual entries are online for the entire month, it’s best to have a plan of attack to optimize this year’s Parade. A look at the map for how best to prioritize your in-person visits will let you take the rest of the month to fill in with virtual tours. The builder representatives are geared up to respond to inquiries and questions you may have in the low-pressure environment the Parade offers. Even if you’re not ready this month or even this year to commit, it can be extremely helpful to know what’s available, what’s trending, and what’s coming to help plan your next move. Let the 2021 BRHBA Parade of Homes help you do anything from choosing a paint color for your next project to selecting a builder for your next home. With all the resources in one place, it doesn’t get any easier than this. Carla Huckabee writes about high-performing real estate.
