The latest Democratic loss—and it was a big one, with Glenn Youngkin and co. flipping Virginia red—has of course sparked a wave of soul searching for the party. Joe Biden won Virginia by 10 percent last year. How could this have happened? Some have suggested that the key to success for the Democrats is to moderate; to focus more on what sells than on lofty, perhaps-unpopular-right-now ideas. (As the always-sharp Jen Sorensen points out in her comic on page 4, calls for moderation can start to sound ridiculous pretty quickly.) Others, meanwhile, have argued that Dems should swing further left, running more progressive candidates with more progressive visions, leaving party water-carriers like Terry McAuliffe behind. Would Jennifer Carroll Foy have beaten Youngkin? Don’t listen to anyone who has a sure answer: We have no way of knowing. Speculating about the causes and results of elections is a comparatively easy part of politics, though. The legislators who now find themselves in the minority have real work to do, as they say in our story on page 15. Virginia Democrats got a lot done in the last few years, and they’ll have to fight tooth and nail to protect those gains. Republicans have their own vision for the future of the state, and they’ll now have a chance to push their agenda forward, with just a few Democratic senators standing in the way. We’ll see how it goes.—Ben Hitchcock

—Former police chief RaShall Brackney at a press conference announcing formal complaints against the city

NEWS IN BRIEF

Local kids get vaxed Children ages 5 to 11 are now eligible for COVID vaccination, and there are plenty of opportunities for families in the Charlottesville area to have their kids inoculated. The Blue Ridge Health District is offering vaccines for children by appointment at its Seminole Square space. Both city and county schools are planning to hold drive-through vaccination clinics on their campuses, and some pediatricians’ offices have begun vaccination events, starting with high-risk patients.

harlottesville announced that Marc Woolley will become the city’s next interim city manager. Woolley has spent the last four years as the business administrator of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. “Right now there are certain acute issues that need to be taken care of, namely the budget and the comprehensive plan,” Woolley said at a virtual introductory press conference on Friday. “My role is to sit down with council and stakeholders and plot a course forward for the short term.” The last city manager, Chip Boyles, resigned in October amid community outcry over his decision to relieve police chief RaShall Brackney of her duties. “I’m not here to upset the apple cart, unless it’s called for, but I don’t see that as my main charge,” Woolley said. In Harrisburg, Woolley said he helped get the city’s finances back on track. Harrisburg is Pennsylvania’s capital, a majority Black city with a population of 50,000 and a metro area population of 590,000. Before that, he worked at the Philadelphia Housing Authority, Delaware River Port Authority, and the Hershey Trust Company. Woolley will become the sixth person to Marc Woolley, Charlottesville’s new interim city manager, is the sixth person to hold that job serve as city manager since 2018. On Friday since 2018. he said the high turnover doesn’t phase him, and that he’s accustomed to “high-stress environments.” That apparently didn’t bother the Charlottesville City Council too “I’ve been doing this for many, many years, and I’ve been in almost much—Councilor Lloyd Snook encouraged those on the call to read any type of situation.” Woolley said. “Virginia does not have the past “the first page of Google” when looking at Woolley’s background. monopoly on complicated or arcane versions of government.

The office has also recently brought in a new acting postmaster and two additional senior officials. To handle the holiday surge, the office has recruited 11 retirees and 21 postal employees from around the state. During a “mail surge” in October, management brought in around 45 additional mail carriers, who helped deliver around 90 percent of backlogged mail. It’s since seen a 90 percent decline in complaints about mail delivery at the post office window. “I’m cautiously optimistic,” said Warner. “It felt like walking around the facility, there was a different attitude, but the proof is going to be in the reaction. I need to hear [from] the community if this is not taking place.”

For months, area residents have reported going weeks without receiving mail, largely due to staffing shortages and poor management at the Charlottesville Post Office. Last week, Virginia Senator Mark Warner met with USPS management to discuss recent improvements. “I think we got their attention,” said Warner during a press conference on the Downtown Mall last Thursday. “From the back office of operation, it looked much more organized, much cleaner, much different from before.” Since Warner’s last visit on August 15, 22 new employees—four clerks, eight city carriers, and 10 rural carriers—have been hired. Twenty applicants are currently waiting to pass background checks.

In a downtown press conference on Tuesday, former Charlottesville police chief RaShall Brackney revealed that she has filed formal complaints with CPD’s human resources department, the local Office of Human Rights, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and the NAACP, concerning her firing in September. She says city leadership defamed, harassed, and discriminated against her for her efforts to dismantle systemic racism within the department. She is demanding $3 million from the city. If the city does not respond to the complaints soon, Brackney and her attorney say they will take her case to federal court.

In a bizarre election footnote, Glenn Youngkin’s 17-year-old son attempted to vote for his father in last week’s election, even though the minimum age for voting in Virginia is 18. The poll workers at the Great Falls Library turned the boy away, reports The Washington Post. He “honestly misunderstood Virginia election law and simply asked polling officials if he was eligible to vote,” responded the Youngkin campaign. “Election integrity” was a major plank in Youngkin’s campaign platform.

White nationalists take the stand Defendants in Unite the Right trial testify during case’s second week By Lisa Provence and Courteney Stuart

Defendant Richard Spencer leaves the courtroom on the first day of the trial.

“There’s a template of charges that you find in present antisemitic rhetoric.” DEBORAH LIPSTADT, EMORY UNIVERSITY

resenting himself, cross-examined one of the nation’s leading experts in Holocaust denial. “There’s a template of charges that you find, if not all of them, in present antisemitic rhetoric,” said Deborah Lipstadt, a professor at Emory University who has authored numerous books and peer-reviewed articles on antisemitism and Holocaust denial. Those charges, she said, include Jewish people having “inordinate financial power,” being “clever, conniving, crafty,” “controlling a large portion of society,” and finally, “being the devil,” working to harm the public for their own benefit. “Antisemitism is ubiquitous,” she said, noting the logical fallacy of Holocaust denial. Spencer, the one-time poster boy for the alt-right, was on the witness stand for over four hours on Thursday. Much of his testimony involved quibbling over what he’d said in a 2020 deposition, texts, and other public statements. “Do you believe the races should be separated?” asked plaintiffs’ attorney Michael Bloch.

ery, and he’s a fugitive on two warrants, one from the August 11 torch rally and another for failure to comply with a court order last year. In September, a federal judge sanctioned Ray by authenticating evidence that established as fact multiple allegations, including that Ray “entered into an agreement with one or more co-conspirators to engage in racially motivated violence in Charlottesville, Virginia,” on the weekend of the Unite the Right rally. Ray “was motivated by animus against racial minorities, Jewish people, and their supporters when conspiring to engage in acts of intimidation and violence,” the evidence shows. In the videos, Ray is seen participating in the torch rally and spewing antisemitic vitriol near the now-removed statue of Robert E. Lee in downtown Charlottesville. The plaintiffs presented extensive evidence from the Discord web platform showing Ray’s communications with other white nationalists in the months leading up to the rally. “Our guys need to get a grip on the fact that they’re probably going to have to physically fight these people,” Ray wrote on August 7, less than a week before the rally. Ray’s other posts expressed his hatred of Jewish and Black people and his desire to inflict physical harm. “I just got done with an hourslong chat with some of the event organizers,” Ray wrote. “The plan is the same. Gas the kikes.” In what may have been the most surreal exchange of the week, Cantwell, who’s rep-

he second week of the Sines v. Kessler trial saw warm praise for Adolf Hitler, AWOL defendants, and a white nationalist antisemite cross-examining a Holocaust scholar. The lawsuit was brought by a collection of nine plaintiffs who claim the organizers of the 2017 Unite the Right rally conspired to commit racially motivated violence. The trial opened with jury selection on October 25, and the latter half of the first week was full of testimony from the plaintiffs, who described the effects of the physical and emotional injuries they sustained that day. In the trial’s second week, defendants began to take the stand. Much of last Tuesday was spent with defendant Matthew Heimbach, head of the Traditionalist Worker Party in 2017, on the stand. The court has already sanctioned Heimbach for failing to turn over evidence during discovery. Heimbach blamed his ex-wife for destroying his electronic devices and deleting his social media accounts. Heimbach says he was “partially inspired” by Hitler and that at some events, followers would exclaim, “Heil Heimbach.” Exhibits showed that neo-Nazis planned the Unite the Right rally on a Discord server called Charlottesville 2.0. The Traditionalist Worker Party had its own server, where Heimbach called for the “total destruction of Jewry.” The exhibits showed that organizer Jason Kessler and Heimbach discussed the white polo shirt and khakis dress code, and that Kessler worried about KKK members showing up in robes. In his deposition, Heimbach said Trad Workers had their own dress code: all black, because “black is a good color to hide blood. Blood on white polos is not a good look.” Defendants in the conspiracy case have tried to distance themselves from each other—despite presiding Judge Norman Moon telling jurors conspirators don’t have to know each other. Heimbach said he’d had maybe one conversation with Richard Spencer, a featured speaker at Unite the Right, and they talked about their families. He also professed to barely know Kessler, Elliott Kline, and “Crying Nazi” Christopher Cantwell. Heimbach had appeared on Cantwell’s “Radical Agenda” podcast. On Wednesday, the jury saw videos of Robert “Azzmador” Ray. Ray worked for the racist and antisemitic website The Daily Stormer, and hasn’t shown up for the trial. He’s also one of several defendants who have been sanctioned in the case for failure to comply with discov-

“No,” said Spencer. Bloch pulled up Spencer’s July 2020 deposition, in which he agreed that the races should be separated. “That’s a semantic issue,” insisted Spencer from the witness stand. Spencer conceded he was an advocate for a white ethno-state, but disagreed that such a move would result in a race war. “I was trying to effect social change,” he said. Bloch introduced a video in which Spencer proclaimed his ownership of a white America, and said, “For us it is conquer or die.” The antisemitic rhetoric carried into the next day, when League of the South founder Michael Hill took the stand. “One hundred and nine times in the history of the world, the Jew has been banished from our midst. Lord, we ask that you make 110 come soon for our southland,” said Hill in a video played for the jury. In the video, Hill, an adverse witness for the plaintiffs, calls the Holocaust “that hoax that the Jew has been perpetrating for 80 years now,” before he burns the Israeli flag, a copy of the Talmud, and The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx. Levine also questioned Hill about his role in helping to organize the rally. “I did speak with Mr. Duke, and I put him in contact with Mr. Kessler and they made the arrangements,” Hill said of David Duke, the infamous white supremacist, longtime KKK leader, and one-time candidate for the U.S. Senate in Louisiana. Duke was present at the Unite the Right rally, and spoke briefly in McIntire Park after the rally was officially canceled. Plaintiffs, too, shared testimony. Marissa Blair narrowly missed getting hit by James Fields’ car when he plowed into a crowd of counterprotesters on August 12. Heather Heyer, her best friend, was killed, and her then-fiancé Marcus Martin was injured. On Monday, she described the terror, chaos, and confusion that followed the attack. “We didn’t know what had happened,” she said. “I was looking for Marcus. I went to where we had been. I saw his red baseball hat.” Her voice choked with emotion. “It was covered with blood.” People led her to Martin and she went with him to the hospital. There, she said, she learned Heyer was dead. “I dropped to my knees and sobbed,” she said. Blair said she could count her friends on two hands, and Heyer was one of them. “She said I was an optimist and she was a realist. She cared about people.”

‘This is a nightmare’ Reports of hazardous conditions in regional jail persist hole finally closed, it still was swollen...they kept putting me on antibiotics instead of just checking on it to make sure it was fine. They just gave up.” Other men in the jail have also gotten spider bites, including on their faces, claims Winston. “We reach out, we ask for help...and we pretty much get treated like shit,” he says.

“T

his is very unhealthy in here for all,” reads one letter. “No one deserves this kind of punishment.” In dozens of letters written over a period of months, people incarcerated at the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail reported that shoddy COVID containment procedures, poor general hygiene, and strict visitation policies have plagued the facility. These complaints are not new. Since last year, the Charlottesville chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America has been corresponding by mail with more than a dozen people in the ACRJ. In January, C-VILLE published a story detailing the unhygienic conditions and other issues at the facility. According to recent interviews with CVILLE—and additional letters collected by DSA—very little has changed at the jail.

Little to do

Inmates at the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail say conditions at the facility are unhealthy, with complaints ranging from poor hygiene to unacceptable COVID containment procedures.

Incarcerated people also report that jail leadership hasn’t addressed their complaints about the building’s numerous health and sanitary issues. One woman, who asked to remain anonymous, claims that the older part of the jail, built in the 1970s, is filled with cockroaches and spiders. The showers get backed up regularly, and the faucets don’t work properly. “We are always getting watered down cleaning solution,” she wrote of the women’s quarters. “And the towels that we get to exchange once a week ALWAYS smell bad.”

The men—housed in the newer part of the jail, which was built in 2000—report similar conditions, including black mold in the showers, cells, and air vents. There are also leaks in the ceiling. One letter writer reports that the heat hasn’t been turned on yet, either. “There is a bag full of poop water hanging from a pipe from the ceiling,” wrote Winston. “It’s filthy as fuck.” “This is a nightmare,” wrote Allan Via, who has been incarcerated at ACRJ for four years. Men also report cockroaches, maggots, spiders, silverfish, and fruit flies running rampant in the facility. While heading to bed one night in August, Winston realized he had a small bump on his left arm. When he woke up, his entire arm was swollen and filled with fluid. Though the nurses told him it was a staph infection, he believes it was a spider bite. “I’m sitting there playing spades, and it just busted. This stuff just starts bleeding out of my arm,” explains Winston. “It was the most disgusting thing I’ve ever seen in my life.” “I had a humongous hole in my arm. They were supposed to treat it every day, then they wanted to stop,” he continues. “Once the

“Initially I praised ACRJ’s handling of COVID, but now I’m simply appalled,” wrote Brown. “[Jail administration is] moving all these people around, potentially exposing healthy people to sick people and making a huge mess out of this whole situation.” When he wrote his letter, Brown was still experiencing severe symptoms of the virus. “Now it hurts to breathe, I can’t smell anything, my whole body aches, and I feel like shit, all because they forgot the meaning of the word ‘lockdown,’” he wrote.

In recent months, the ACRJ has failed to properly treat COVID cases and keep the deadly virus from spreading, according to multiple sources from within the facility. Over the summer, Terrence Winston says that his entire cell block contracted coronavirus, even though most of the men were fully vaccinated. “One person had to go to medical, and we quarantined, but they never came and COVID tested us,” explains Winston, who has been incarcerated at ACRJ since 2019. “The only thing they did was check our blood pressure, check our temperature, and gave us this cough and cold medicine.” “Some people just had the sniffles, but others had the cough, sore throat, congested head cold, lost sense of smell and taste, body aches,” he adds. “I still really don’t have my full sense of taste and smell back.” According to ACRJ Superintendent Martin Kumer, there are currently three active COVID cases at the jail. Around 47 percent of the population is fully vaccinated, and 55 percent have received at least one dose of the shot. In September, Deryck Brown claims the jail added a new person to his block in the middle of a lockdown. The man soon started exhibiting minor COVID symptoms, and the whole block had to get tested. Four people tested positive and were put into quarantine, but “we all had it, all 12 of us,” wrote Brown. Over the next few days, he and another man started to experience COVID symptoms too. They were tested again and moved to a quarantine block. However, they were later moved to the medical unit due to issues with a “problematic bunch,” then back to quarantine.

SKYCLAD AERIAL

Poor COVID management

Since the start of the pandemic, the jail has banned in-person visits, which has taken a heavy toll on the population’s mental health. “The ban was horrible,” wrote one man, who wished to remain anonymous. “I only gotten to see my kids in pictures.” “The ban on visits takes away from your spirit, your hope, adding to your loneliness and the great hurt you already have being separated from your loved ones,” wrote Via. After months of waiting, every person in the jail now has their own tablet, which they can use to do video visitations with those outside, as well as watch TV, listen to music, and send emails. However, it costs $15 per video call, and 5 cents per minute for other tablet activities. Want to catch a football game? It’ll cost you around $9. And the tablet system doesn’t work for everyone. “My papa has no smartphone or computer, so even video visits are not [worth it] for some of us,” wrote the incarcerated woman. Kumer says the jail will allow in-person visits again “as soon as it is safe to do so.” With classes and programming also still on pause, people at the jail are left with little to do. They are not allowed to go outside, and have limited indoor recreation time each week. They are also banned from ordering books online, meaning they can only read books already inside the jail. The jail says this rule was put in place because people had used books to smuggle drugs into the building. To pass the time, many people feel they have no choice but to become trustees, says Winston. “Without the trustees, this jail would be fucked. Right now they’re short staffed,” he says. “[Trustees] fix the jail, they help clean the jail, they help keep the jail presentable, they cook...They work like slaves down there.” Though they do not get paid or receive any special benefits for their hard work, they at least have “something else to do for the day,” Winston says. Winston himself has not been allowed to be a trustee due to his charges. “I’ve been sitting up in this jail for almost three years. There’s no programs that will help me,” he says. “It’s like I can’t do nothing. I just gotta sit here.”

Painting the town red Looking ahead at a GOP-controlled Virginia

The Republican ticket of Glenn Youngkin, Winsome Sears, and Jason Miyares prevailed in Tuesday’s election.

Local winners and losers

facebook.com/cville.weekly

Republicans Chris Runion, Rob Bell, and Matt Farris, and Democrat Sally Hudson, the four House of Delegates members who represent Charlottesville and Albemarle, each easily won re-election for another two-year term. Locally, former school board member Juandiego Wade and UVA planner Brian Pinkston cruised to victory in the City Council race, earning 42.5 percent and 36.9 percent of the vote, respectively. Independent candidate Yas Washington finished third with 12.5 percent. Current Mayor Nikuyah Walker, who dropped out of the race in September, after her name had already been printed on the ballots, earned 7 percent of the vote. The vote split between council candidates was remarkably even across the city’s voting precincts; no candidate had particular strengths or weaknesses in any part of town. Lisa Larson-Torres won re-election to the Charlottesville school board, where she’ll be joined by newcomers Emily Dooley, a former teacher, principal, and realtor, and Dom Morse, a teacher at Community Lab School. In Albemarle County, incumbent Graham Paige dispatched a write-in challenge from conservative Randy Zackrisson.—Ben Hitchcock

phasized his opposition to critical race theory, a high-level framework for understanding race, which is not taught in any primary schools in Virginia. “By the end of the 2021 campaign, Youngkin was very clearly the ‘education’ candidate. Perhaps the bigger lesson there is that candidates would be smart to pick one or two signature issues like that and stick with them,” Coleman says. Virginia’s 11 U.S. Congressional representatives are up for reelection in 2022. Democrats currently hold seven of those seats, but at least two will be very competitive elections. Democrats need to “communicate their successes better,” Hashmi believes, pointing to the recent federal infrastructure bill as an example of the kind of thing worth emphasizing. UVA politics professor Jennifer Lawless agrees, saying that “Democrats need to focus on what they have delivered to everyday Americans.” “No politics is local,” Lawless says. “In recent decades, national issues have dominated local political agendas. National figures endorse and stump for local candidates. And money for state-level candidates floods in from national donors. Despite talking points to the contrary, that’s exactly what we saw this time around.” Hudson says delegates have to push back on this trend. “Candidates who prevailed did the best job connecting with their community, and addressed issues at the top of their constituents’ minds,” she says. “There is something very small-d democratic about running for delegate.” Democrats won’t change their policy priorities given the new landscape, say Hashmi and Deeds. The party will continue to prioritize public schools, higher education, infrastructure, the environment, support for small business, and access to health care. “We’ll get through this,” Deeds says. “We just have to work harder.”

hen I was a young man… I’d get so wrapped up in elections,” says state Senator Creigh Deeds, who represents Charlottesville and some surrounding rural areas. “But an election is not an event, it’s part of a process. The work continues after the election.” Still, it was a consequential election: For the last two years, Democrats controlled all three branches of state government. Then, on Tuesday, Glenn Youngkin beat Terry McAuliffe by 2 percent, ending a losing streak for Republicans, who haven’t won a statewide Virginia election since 2009. The GOP also flipped the House from a 55-45 Democratic majority to a 52-48 Republican advantage. Democrats hold a slim 21-19 majority in the state Senate. The change in party control of the legislature could have huge consequences for the state’s future. Despite the losses, Deeds remains hopeful that there’s legislation the Democrats can get passed with a Republican House of Delegates and a Democratic Senate. Deeds has spent 29 years in the state legislature, and he’s been in the minority for 16 of those years. “Democrats won’t put the breaks on anything, they’ll just temper policy goals with a little realism,” he says. Delegate Sally Hudson, meanwhile, is concerned that some of the progress of the last two years will slow or halt. For example, meaningful change Democrats had made on criminal justice reform risks being undone by Republicans. “Virginia still has draconian laws that Democrats were trying to unwind,” Hudson says. “I worry that work will start slowing down.” Some new initiatives, too, are suddenly in jeopardy. “Marijuana legalization is still a work in progress and there’s a lot to be determined,” Hudson says. “Democrats

and Republicans have a very different vision for that.” On the bright side, “we still have a lot of energetic members of the House—there’s been a sea change in the past few years and we now have a diverse and vibrant body of members in the House,” Hudson says. Rob Bell, a Republican delegate representing parts of Albemarle County, declined to comment. Shenandoah Republican Delegate Todd Gilbert is set to move from House Minority Leader to Speaker. In a recent statement, he claimed that for the past two years, “the Constitution and the rules and our procedures have been run over.” Republicans are going to try to “run a more open process,” and fix some of the institutional damage they claim was caused by the Dems. Gilbert said in a news conference that Republicans’ top priority will be education and that they’ll also work on “tweaking, not scrapping” the recently implemented marijuana legalization bill. Many of the promises Youngkin made on the campaign trail, such as slashing the transportation budget, privatizing public education, and limiting women’s access to safe and legal abortions, will likely be “hugely unpopular” in Virginia, says state Senator Ghazala Hashmi, a Democrat representing District 10, which contains parts of central Virginia from Powhatan to the outskirts of Richmond. “We know that Virginians have no desire to replicate the failures of other GOP-led states such as Texas and Florida,” she says. Looking around the country, Youngkin’s win could change the way Republican candidates approach their 2022 races. In particular, other GOP candidates might borrow from Youngkin’s education playbook, according to J. Miles Coleman of the University of Virginia Center for Politics. In the final stretch of the campaign, Youngkin promised more parental involvement in the educational process and em-

Charlottesville City went 82.9 percent for McAuliffe and 16 percent for Youngkin, and McAuliffe took Albemarle County 61.9 to 37.4. Those might sound like Democratic blowouts, but it’s a lower margin of victory than other Democrats have enjoyed here in recent elections. In total, McAuliffe won the combined Charlottesville-Albemarle area by 36 percent. In 2020, Joe Biden won the area by 46 percent, and in 2017, Ralph Northam won here by 40 percent. Cutting down Democratic margins of victory in super-blue areas was one key to Youngkin’s victory. Additionally, turnout fell from the 2020 presidential election, as always happens in off-year elections. Biden got 17,500 more votes in Charlottesville and Albemarle in 2020 than McAuliffe did last week.

Water works Local Black-owned business looks to make a splash in H20 By Shea Gibbs

order on March 23 requiring executive branch state agencies to stop trafficking in single-use plastic water bottles, as well as disposable plastic bags, plastic, and polystyrene food containers, and plastic straws and cutlery. The gov gave necessary medical, public health, and public safety plastics some exemptions, but the agencies must phase out all non-medical, single-use plastic and polystyrene by 2025. “About 9 percent of plastics that get recycled actually get repurposed,” Kelley says. “Aluminum is of course the number one most recycled material.” Kelley’s right, but it does take some effort to move aluminum down the recycling stream and get it back on shelves. She suggests taking your empty bottles directly to a recycling center, rather than throwing it in your single-stream bin. You have to be “religious about physically taking your items,” she says. So what’s next for the self-funded, two-employee Civil Water? Kelley and co-founder Neil Wood are confident they can grow with demand—they contract with a third party to bottle their water, which they say is direct from an Appalachian Mountain source, and have plenty of capacity. They’re now looking for funding to expand, Wood says. “We want to be able to hit the huge retail chain stores to become accessible for everyone around the country,” Wood says. “And then from there, we will offer some smaller options for packaging.” And what about those bubbles and flavors? “We actually haven’t thought about that,” Wood says. “There is a market for it. But we don’t drink it.”

I

t makes up around 60 percent of the human body. It covers more than 70 percent of the Earth’s surface. And it makes up 100 percent of local Black-owned business Civil Water’s product portfolio. Good old-fashioned water—in bottles. No bubbles, no flavors, no harmful chemicals, no healthy minerals removed. So what’s the big deal then? Barely 6-month-old Civil Water sells its liquid to wholesalers or direct-to-consumer only in aluminum bottles. The 12-ounce vessels are available online—and by subscription service—in 24-packs for $43.99. “We’re in five states on the East Coast,” said Faith Kelley, one of two just-over-20-year-old founders running Civil Water out of a Charlottesville office. “As far as being in large chain stores nationwide, that’s more difficult. Our timeline is about a year or two.” It’s tough to figure out how well Civil Water is doing relative to its competitors and the overall market, as data on packaged water are scarce. But anecdotally, boxed and metaled water firms keep pouring out. Liquid Death, JUST Water, Open Water, Proud Source. Along with C’ville’s own, they’re all looking to irrigate a portion of the market. “What makes Civil Water unique is a lot of people are really connected to the fact that we are local,” Kelley says. “And, only a few of the other aluminum bottled water companies are actually spring water.” By any measure, aluminum is way more recyclable than plastic. Regulators and the packaged water industry have taken notice. Governor Ralph Northam signed an executive

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Scorpio theologian Eugene Peterson cleared up a mystery about the nature of mystery. He wrote, “Mystery is not the absence of meaning, but the presence of more meaning than we can comprehend.” Yes! At least sometimes, mystery can be a cause for celebration, a delightful opening into a beautiful unknown that’s pregnant with possibility. It may bring abundance, not frustration. It may be an inspiring riddle, not a debilitating doubt. Everything I just said is important for you to keep in mind right now.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): In 2017, Richard Thaler won the Nobel Prize for Economics. His specialty: researching how unreasonable behavior affects the financial world. When he discovered that this great honor had been bestowed on him, he joked that he planned to spend the award money “as irrationally as possible.” I propose we make him your role model for the near future, Sagittarius. Your irrational, nonrational, and trans-rational intuitions can fix distortions caused by the overly analytical and hyper-logical approaches of you and your allies.

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): “Neurotic” and “neurosis” are old-fashioned words. Psychotherapists no longer use them in analyzing their patients. The terms are still useful, though, in my opinion. Most of us are at least partly neurotic—that is to say, we don’t always adapt as well as we could to life’s constantly changing circumstances. We find it challenging to outgrow our habitual patterns, and we fall short of fulfilling the magnificent destines we’re capable of. Author Kenneth Tynan had this insight: “A neurosis is a secret that you don’t know you are keeping.” I bring this to your attention, Capricorn, because you now have extra power to adapt to changing circumstances, outgrow habitual patterns, and uncover unknown secrets—thereby diminishing your neuroses.

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Author Darin Stevenson wrote the following poetic declaration: “’No one can give you the lightning-medicine,’ say the people who cannot give the lightning medicine.” How do you interpret his statement? Here’s what I think. “Lightning medicine” may be a metaphorical reference to a special talent that some people have for healing or inspiring or awakening their fellow humans. It could mean an ingenious quality in a person that enables them to reveal surprising truths or alternative perspectives. I am bringing this up, Aquarius, because I suspect you now have an enhanced capacity to obtain lightning medicine in the coming weeks. I hope you will corral it and use it even if you are told there is no such thing as lightning medicine. (PS: “Lightning medicine” will fuel your ability to accomplish difficult feats.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): The superb fairywren gives its chicks lessons on how to sing when they are still inside their eggs. This is a useful metaphor for you in the coming months. Although you have not yet been entirely “born” into the next big plot twist of your hero’s journey, you are already learning what you’ll need to know once you do arrive in your new story. It will be helpful to become conscious of these clues and cues from the future. Tune in to them at the edges of your awareness.

Aries (March 21-April 19): For much of her life, Aries poet Mary Ruefle enjoyed imagining that polar bears and penguins “grew up together playing side by side on the ice, sharing the same vista, bits of blubber, and innocent lore.” But one day, her illusions were shattered. In a science journal, she discovered that there are no penguins in the far north and no bears in the far south. I bring this to your attention, Aries, because the coming weeks will be a good time to correct misimpressions you’ve held for a while—even as far back as childhood. Joyfully modernize your understanding of how the world works.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): Actor Elizabeth Taylor described her odd rhythm with actor James Dean. Occasionally, they’d stay awake till 3am as he regaled her with poignant details about his life. But the next day, Dean would act like he and Taylor were strangers—as if, in Taylor’s words, “he’d given away or revealed too much of himself.” It would take a few days before he’d be friendly again. To those of us who study the nature of intimacy, this is a classic phenomenon. For many people, taking a risk to get closer can be scary. Keep this in mind during the coming weeks, Taurus. There’ll be great potential to deepen your connection with dear allies, but you may have to deal with both your and their skittishness about it.

Gemini (May 21-June 20): There are many different kinds of smiles. Four hundred muscles are involved in making a wide variety of expressions. Researchers have identified a specific type, dubbed the “affiliation smile,” as having the power to restore trust between two people. It’s soothing, respectful, and compassionate. I recommend you use


Q&A it abundantly in the near future—along with other conciliatory behavior. You’re in a favorable phase to repair relationships that have been damaged by distrust or weakened by any other factor.

Cancer (June 21-July 22): According to feminist cosmologists Monica Sjöö and Barbara Mor, “Night, to ancient people, was not an ‘absence of light’ or a negative darkness, but a powerful source of energy and inspiration. At night the cosmos reveals herself in her vastness, the earth opens to moisture and germination under moonlight, and the magnetic serpentine current stirs itself in the underground waters.” I bring these thoughts to your attention, fellow Cancerian, because we’re in the season when we are likely to be extra creative: as days grow shorter and nights longer. We Crabs thrive in the darkness. We regenerate ourselves and are visited by fresh insights about what Sjöö and Mor call “the great cosmic dance in which everything participates: the movement of the celestial bodies, the pulse of tides, the circulation of blood and sap in animals and plants.”

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Your heart has its own brain: a “heart brain.” It’s composed of neurons similar to the neurons in your head’s brain. Your heart brain communicates via your vagus nerve with your hypothalamus, thalamus, medulla, amygdala, and cerebral cortex. In this way, it gives your body helpful instructions. I suspect it will be extra strong in the coming weeks. That’s why I suggest you call on your heart brain to perform a lot of the magic it specializes in: enhancing emotional intelligence, cultivating empathy, invoking deep feelings, and transforming pain.

My thoughts: unprintable. @AGRENADIER/INSTAGRAM

Thankful for a fresh set of eyes for my home state and the direction our country is headed with this win. @_ITSMEKRIS___/INSTAGRAM

Not surprising. The question is: Can Virginian Rs and Ds work together for the good of the entire commonwealth? Just imagine. If compromise could happen for the good of all. We could be a model for the entire country. Moving beyond the quagmire of polarization. @HUCKLEHOO/TWITTER

Sorry to see parents not knowing what their children are taught, and who would believe a lie about the curriculum of Virginia schools. Not surprised people are disappointed in the economy of COVID, and blamed it on (no matter how wrong) the administration in power. JANET LUFF/FACEBOOK

Another stain on the history of Virginia. @STOSE/INSTAGRAM

It’s time for Democrats to stop nominating empty suits. McAuliffe was just that during his first term. Why did anyone think that he could win in the age of Trumpism?

I’m glad we had a physician as governor during the pandemic. I wish Gov-elect Youngkin success. CAROLYN O’NEAL/FACEBOOK

The Democrats ran a corporatist retread. When will they ever learn? SHARON PIERCE/FACEBOOK

Racism and misogyny via Trump Youngkin.

What’s the difference? Those of us who work for a living get screwed regardless of who the governor is. They’re all scum.

LESLIE GREER FENDLEY/FACEBOOK

@VONFURSTER/INSTAGRAM

@PATRICK.D.WATTS/INSTAGRAM

For just twenty million dollars you too can become governor in Virginia. In case you were wondering. @ROXYMUNDO1100/INSTAGRAM

Youngkin is a wolf in fleece clothing.

Very disappointed, but not overly worried. He seems like a decent human. This is democracy at its finest. Sometimes we win, sometimes the other team wins. Virginia historically creates a balance of power with the gubernatorial election, going against the party in the White House, so it’s really not a surprise. LYNNE BRUBAKER/FACEBOOK

Next week’s question: How are you shaking up your Thanksgiving traditions this year? Send your answers to question@c-ville.com, or respond via Twitter @cville_weekly (#cvillequestion), Instagram @cvilleweekly or on our Facebook page facebook.com/cville.weekly. The best responses will run in next week’s paper. Have a question of your own you’d like to ask? Let us know.

facebook.com/cville.weekly

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You could soon reach a new level of mastery in an aptitude described by author Banana Yoshimoto. She wrote, “Once you’ve recognized your own limits, you’ve raised yourself to a higher level of being, since you’re closer to the real you.” I hope her words inspire you, Libra. Your assignment is to seek a liberating breakthrough by identifying who you will never be and what you will never do. If you do it right— with an eager, open mind—it will be fun and interesting and empowering.

What are your thoughts on the Republican sweep in the Virginia election?

November 10 – 16, 2021 c-ville.com

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): How did naturalist Charles Darwin become a skillful thinker who changed the world with his theory of evolution? An important factor, according to businessperson Charlie Munger: “He always gave priority attention to evidence tending to disconfirm whatever cherished and hard-won theory he already had.” He loved to be proved wrong! It helped him refine his ideas so they more closely corresponded to the truth about reality. I invite you to enjoy using this method in the coming weeks, Virgo. You could become even smarter than you already are as you wield Darwin’s rigorous approach to learning.

Trails All that pizza is easy to work off on the lovely, four-mile, Crozet Connector Trail system that links many of the city’s neighborhoods. “The trail links from Claudius Crozet Park, but it connects to the backsides of the Glenbrook, Foothill Crossing, Westlake Hills, West Hall, and Western Ridge neighborhoods,” Cromer says. “It loops around, so if you don’t want your kid to ride their bike on the street, they can take the trail.” Other connecting points are Lickinghole Basin (a popular spot for birding), Beaver Creek Park (219 acres with a 104-acre fishing and boating lake), and Old Trail Village. At the head of each trail is a paved parking lot. A largely volunteer group, the Crozet Trails Crew (CTC), established the trails and carefully maintains them. Special events including guided hikes and an annual 5K run raise funds and awareness.

WELCOME TO

“not-for-the-timid” sauced creations not just great, but “the best in the world.” Originally opened by Bob and Karen Crum in 1977, and now run by their daughter Colleen and her husband Mike, Crozet Pizza is a downtown institution. And you no longer have to order days in advance.

Doing the Tunnel

BY KEN WILSON

Gaze and Read very welcoming. It kind of grounds the heart of Crozet right there.” A former track and field star and UVA coach, now with Cromer Team Realty, Cromer and her husband moved to Crozet seven years ago, looking for more space for their young family. They found a place to grow, and a place to relax a little. “It has just a notch slower pace of life,” Cromer says now. “When you have a growing family and it’s chaotic and crazy all the time, it’s nice to be able to soak in that—to have the recreation and the mountain views and be able to jump over to the orchard or the vineyard for an hour for a picnic. Everything is a bit slower; that was most welcome.”

Pizza You’ll want to slow down, the better to savor, when you’re downtown having a bite at Crozet Pizza. A city with an estimated population of only 7,159 in 2019

is an unlikely place to find world-class pizza. But if anyone should know, it’s the globetrotters at National Geographic, who called Crozet Pizza’s three-day-dough

rive 12 miles west of Charlottesville or 21 miles east of Staunton and you’ll find one happy and friendly community. Want proof? Just drive downtown and look up. While your typical young adult is more likely to leave town than to tout it, twenty-one-year-old Virginia Tech architecture student Charlie Crotteau and his former Western Albemarle High School classmate Emmy Thacker teamed up to give their own hometown a sevenfoot-tall sign of affection. “Welcome to Crozet” it says. Crotteau designed the cheerfully colored mural, with it fruits and flowers and expansive Blue Ridge Mountain view; Thacker and a couple of assistants stenciled and painted it onto a blank wall. “I luuuv that mural,” says Dawn Cromer with enthusiasm that leaves no room for doubt. “It’s beautiful and it’s

If You Look, You’ll Stay

Another cool reminder of local history is the newly re-opened Claudius Crozet Blue Ridge Tunnel, now repurposed for new generations as a walking and biking trail. Built to be a railroad tunnel, it was designed by Claudius Crozet, a Frenchborn civil engineer and West Point instructor, who resided in the town (then called Wayland’s Crossing) during its construction between 1850 and 1858. “It’s a fabulous resource,” says another lifelong area resident, REALTOR® Ross Stevens of Stevens Company. “They’ve really done a nice job converting it into a public trail through the mountain. From Crozet it goes through Afton Mountain on the east slope into the Waynesboro side in Nelson County.”

Fruit Picking Who wants peaches? Who doesn’t? Crozet’s Chiles Peach Orchard and Farm Market dates back to 1912, when the Chiles family planted its first trees and began shipping the crop ‘round the country for commercial production. In 1974 a bad freeze left them so little fruit that the usual picking and packing routine wasn’t worth its while. They coped. They ran an ad in the newspaper, set up a card table, scales and a cigar box, hoped for the best—and sold out. Local pickers have been welcomed ever since. Today April through November you can find peaches, strawberries, sweet cherries, pumpkins and seventeen varieties of apples, and numerous enticing fruit products. Kids and grown-ups love the peach frozen yogurt and milkshakes sold in season. Another old Crozet family, the Henleys, founded its orchard back in 1932 when Joseph T. Henley, Sr., the Commonwealth of Virginia’s first fruit inspector, purchased five acres of land and planted apple trees. As Henley expanded his property, he added nectarine and peach trees, and the orchard has been in family hands for four generations now. Most of its fruit is for sale from mid-June till the end of October. Its late-season apples, kept in

cold storage, are sold throughout the winter until April.

Parks and Rec For family outings and play dates right in town there is twenty-two-acre Claudius Crozet Park, with baseball and soccer fields, tennis courts, walking trails, a pool open year-round, and a dog park.

A 47,000 square foot aquatic and fitness center is coming. Crozet’s Piedmont Family YMCA makes its home in the park, as do the Peachtree Baseball program and the award winning, 300-or-so member Gators Swim Team. During the park’s annual Arts and Crafts Festival each fall over 120 jury-selected fine art and craft exhibitors sell their work.

Mint Springs Valley Park stretches across 520 acres, including two acres of sandy beach and eight of water, 1.8 miles of trails, plus playgrounds and grill-equipped picnic shelters. U.S. Coast Guard-approved boats with electric motors are welcome on the lake, which is stocked with largemouth bass, sunfish and channel catfish.

Sipping and Swirling For beer lovers, one of the best and most well-known of the Commonwealth’s 290 craft breweries is here too. Starr Hill Brewery and Tap Room, operating in the former Morton Frozen Foods plant, shares its building with the entertainment marketing company Musictoday, founded by Dave Matthews Band manager Coran Capshaw. Just a few minutes out of town is King Family Vineyards, a gorgeous spot for picnics and weddings, or just lazy afternoons. Wine was an afterthought when David and Ellen King arrived here from Houston, Texas in 1995. As an avid polo player since 1980, David wanted a farm with twelve flat acres for a polo field. Today their property is a destination spot for polo players and oenophiles alike.

New construction goes from the mid$500,000s and up. So look around. For homebuyers with a $300,000 to $400,000 budget, “Highlands is a great neighborhood to start off in,” Cromer says. “A majority of the homes there are duplexes; they’re attached, yet they feel like they have their own yards.”

For higher end purchasers, Cromer recommends Western Ridge: “I’ve always adored that neighborhood. It’s fabulous because they turned the old farmhouse into a clubhouse with a recreation area including a pool. That adds a lot of value to the neighborhood. The Crozet Trails are right off of that neighborhood as well.” Retirees—but not only retirees—love

“There is no compelling reason to leave Crozet unless your job requires it,” says Jim Duncan of Nest Realty, a “Crozetian” for 19 years. The town may not be as small as it was back then,” he says, but “it’s still a great place to live. The mountains haven’t changed.” And the restaurants, coffee shops, cool places to shop, and other area attractions have multiplied. “We have more amenities that don’t require us to go to Charlottesville or over the mountain to Waynesboro.” “Crozet has grown a lot in the last 15 years and is probably going to double in size in the next 15 or 20. But we’re still going to be close to the mountains and the Shenandoah National Park and Blue Ridge Parkway.” What’s more, Duncan says, “There is a great sense of community in Crozet; but there [are] also many micro-communities within the broader Crozet community. I have clients who are in knitting clubs and book clubs and soccer and bicycling and running clubs.” It’s a dynamic place, Crozet. “Crozet Sports is raising money for more fields and recreation facilities,” Cromer notes. “There is so much talent in the kids out here.” So much talent—and so many contented people.
