THIS WEEK Hello, Charlottesville, and thank you for reading C-VILLE Weekly. This week’s news is, frankly, horrific. A shooter at UVA kills three bright young students and injures two others. There are so many words being used to describe the situation—you’ve likely heard them on the local and national news—words that condemn this tragic event, that express outrage and sadness, that send hearts out to loved ones and offer condolences. To me, one of the saddest things about these all-too-frequent acts of violence is that we seem to run out of ways to express our grief. And those who are affected by this shooting—from the families of victims to the students on Grounds who are terrified of an active shooter on the loose— are surely emotionally exhausted. No words can truly capture that pain. But, write, we must. To print words isn’t just the imperative of the newspaper or the journalist; writing makes us human, even when words don’t seem to suffice. And so, this week, a UVA student writes for C-VILLE about the events that unfolded between November 13 and 14, from the beginning to the aftermath (p. 16). We include information about the young men who died, who they were and what they meant to the people in their lives. We cover the university’s response, and, importantly, what happens next. In the United States, the aftermath of a shooting can too often feel like the preamble to another burst of gun violence. But it doesn’t have to be this way, even if many people in this country disagree over the cause of such tragedies. In this week’s paper we also look at what the aftermath has meant for other school shootings, from the perspectives of survivors and activists. I hope their experiences resonate with you.—Richard DiCicco

Bryan Silva was arrested at his West Main Street residence on November 14.

“The challenges that we face, as a district, a nation and a planet, remain stark, and my commitment to addressing those challenges remains firm,” he said. “I will not forget the many residents of the 5th District I met during this race: the good, hardworking people who simply want a better, fairer, more just world for their families and their communities.” “I will pray for Bob Good,” he added, “and pray that he can rise to the challenge of being a representative who helps those people build the world they seek.” Reflecting on other midterm races lost by Democrats, Throneburg encouraged his party members to “do better at working together,” and implement better campaign strategies. “We have great ideas, I think we actually have great hearts, but we don’t always have the strategy we need,” he told CBS19. “I think there’s some opportunity to be more efficient, integrated, and cooperative.” Republican Governor Glenn Youngkin also voiced disappointment over some of Virginia’s midterm results. GOP candidates Yesli Vega and Hung Cao—who the governor had stumped for—lost to Democratic incumbents Abigail Spanberger and Jennifer Wexton in the 7th District and 10th District, respectively. “I do think that as a Republican, we had hoped that we would win more races,” Youngkin told NBC29. “I do think that the ultimate outcome of a change of leadership in Congress will happen in the House.” At press time, Republicans were on track to gain a majority in the House of Representatives, while Democrats will maintain control of the Senate.

The Virginia Department of Education has proposed revisions to the state’s history and social science learning standards that “recognize the world impact of America’s quest for a ‘more perfect Union’ and the optimism, ideals, and imagery captured by Ronald Reagan’s ‘shining city upon a hill’ speech,” reads the draft revisions, which were released on November 11. “Students will know our nation’s exceptional strengths … while learning from terrible periods and actions in direct conflict with these ideals.” Critics, including the Virginia Education Association, say the changes are full of conservative bias, reports The Washington Post. The state education board is expected to vote on the standards early next year.

ifth District Republican Bob Good will serve a second term in Congress, after beating Democratic challenger Josh Throneburg on November 8 by 16 percentage points—around 48,600 votes. After last year’s redistricting, the 5th is considered competitive, but remains Republican-leaning, according to FiveThirtyEight. A Democrat has not won the seat since 2008. “The people of the 5th District have spoken loudly and convincingly that the 5th District is a bright red conservative district,” Good told reporters outside his Election Day campaign party in Lynchburg, reports NBC29. “I’m just so encouraged and so thankful to the voters of the 5th District who gave us overwhelming support, about 10 points above where we finished two years ago.” “The American people are asking the Republican Party to rescue them from the Democrat party,” added the hardcore conservative. “That’s what’s happening tonight.” Throneburg, an ordained minister and small business owner, congratulated Good on a “long, hard-fought race,” and thanked his many supporters in his concession statement. “I’m so grateful to the people who supported me through this campaign—the tireless volunteers, the local committees, the grassroots donors who helped us do everything from gassing up our cars to putting commercials up on television. I’m grateful to my staff and to Eleanor, my campaign manager,” he said. “Most of all, I’m grateful to my family: Minhee, Lucy and Agnes are the reasons I got into this race … [and] continue the fight to build a better world.” Throneburg expressed disappointment over his loss, but promised to continue to serve the district.

On November 14, the CPD received a report of threats that 31-year-old Bryan Michael Silva made on social media against UVA, and obtained a search warrant for his West Main Street residence. Silva was arrested and charged with possessing a controlled substance, and a weapon or ammunition as a convicted felon. On November 13, Silva, a social media celebrity and adult content creator, said on Facebook that he wanted UVA to “know what pain and suffering is”—just three days before, he posted a video showing hundreds of bullet cartridges. Police do not believe his threats were related to the shooting at the university.

The Charlottesville Police Department rejected most of the recommendations former Police Civilian Oversight executive director Hansel Aguilar made in his neutral evaluation of the board’s first case.

icy,” continued Aguilar. However, the former director agreed with the CPD that “the officer had established probable cause to affect the arrest of C.G. in violation of the state’s public intoxication law,” which states that “if any person is intoxicated in public … he is guilty of a Class 4 misdemeanor.” In response, the CPD claimed that Aguilar was not authorized to publicly release these details from Houchens’ interview, according to a standard operating procedure—but did not explain how Houchens determined Gonzalez was a danger to himself or others, or clarify which department policy directed him to get Gonzalez “out of the public’s view.”

Aguilar also questioned why the CPD did not submit the complaint to the commonwealth’s attorney during its criminal investigation into the matter. “It was unclear what specific investigative steps the CPD Captain took (beyond the interview of Officer L.H.) to reach the conclusion that no criminal violation took place since there is only one email from the CPD Captain,” wrote Aguilar. In the email, the unnamed captain explained that the department did not contact the commonwealth’s attorney because Houchens’ use of force was appropriate and lawful under CPD and state criminal justice department policies. The CPD countered that then-chief RaShall Brackney agreed with the captain and criminal investigations division that Houchens’ “response to the resistance did not rise to a criminal violation” and “was in accordance” with its response to resistance policy, and therefore “did not require review by the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s office.” However, the department’s response did not explain why Houchens did not wait for backup to help de-escalate the situation, or why investigators did not interview Gonzalez, among other questions in Aguilar’s report. Concluding its responses, the CPD rejected six out of Aguilar’s nine recommendations to help increase communitypolice transparency and accountability, including “lowering the probable cause standard to reasonable suspicion when determining whether to refer complaints to the Commonwealth’s Attorney,” “updating UOF/RTR [use of force/response to resistance] to include explicit identification and handling of pre-assault indicators,” “retraining [Houchens] of de-escalation techniques,” and “revisiting how much information is made available to complainants of misconduct.” CONTINUED ON PAGE 14

efore ditching Charlottesville for California last month, former Police Civilian Oversight Board executive director Hansel Aguilar evaluated the board’s long-awaited first case, which concerned the violent arrest of a man experiencing homelessness on the Downtown Mall in 2020. Though the board was initially scheduled to hold a hearing on the case in July, complainant Jeff Fogel, a local attorney, and the Charlottesville Police Department agreed to an alternative dispute resolution on the day of the hearing, due to Fogel’s claim that two board members were biased against him. After city attorney Lisa Robertson expressed legal concerns over the ADR, the board and two parties then decided in August to allow Aguilar to conduct a neutral evaluation of the case. On September 28, Aguilar—who resigned from the board on October 12, after accepting a new gig as the director of police accountability for the City of Berkeley, California—issued his 63-page evaluation, which determined the CPD did not “thoroughly, completely, and accurately” investigate Fogel’s complaint. On October 24, the CPD refuted some of Aguilar’s findings and rejected most of his recommendations for the department, but neglected to address multiple questions and concerns raised by the former director. Fogel filed his complaint against the CPD in July 2020, after a Charlottesville police officer—identified as Officer Houchens in Aguilar’s report—arrested 36-year-old Christopher Gonzalez, who was lying down on the Downtown Mall. Gonzalez admitted to drinking alcohol, and said he was homeless. Houchens threatened to arrest him for public intoxication unless he left the mall, which Gonzalez refused to do. Houchens tried to handcuff him, but Gonzalez pulled

away. Houchens then pinned Gonzalez to the ground, and put him in a headlock for nearly a minute, according to a now-deleted Instagram video. Gonzalez was later charged with assault of a police officer, public intoxication, and obstruction of justice, and was held without bail for almost three weeks at the local jail. Though Gonzalez’s charges were later dismissed, in September 2020 the CPD exonerated Fogel’s allegations of excessive force, and concluded that the allegations of bias-based policing were unfounded. In his report, Aguilar asserted that the CPD should have evaluated the appropriateness of Houchens’ threat to arrest Gonzalez “through the lens” of its public intoxication policy—which directs officers to arrest intoxicated people when they “may cause harm” to themselves or others—instead of just its biased-based policing policy. Investigators also should have better questioned Houchens to determine if his actions were biased, Aguilar said. “I like to give them the opportunity to go sober up or go somewhere,” Houchens said during an interview with a CPD investigator. “I know that these people don’t have anywhere to go, really anywhere to be. … Once we start getting calls from citizens about it, that’s kind of when it starts to become a problem, but I still will try to get them at least out of the public’s view.” “Who are ‘these people’ that the officer is referring to?” asked Aguilar in his evaluation. “Was C.G. ‘causing a problem’ other than community members calling in about him? Under what departmental guidance, practice, or procedure is Officer L.H. operating under when he states the need to ‘try to get them at least out of the public’s view’? Is Officer L.H. suggesting that being intoxicated in public is acceptable just if it is not on the downtown mall?” “Without asking sufficient questions … it is difficult to ascertain whether the threat to arrest C.G. followed the Department’s pol-

wo dozen student veterans came together November 11 at Newcomb Hall to celebrate Veterans Day and share the struggles they’ve faced transitioning from military to student life— as well as the advantages being a veteran has afforded them. UVA President Jim Ryan, along with other university officials, also attended the event, hosted by the Student Veterans of America. Student veterans detailed the struggles they faced adjusting to UVA. Alex, a secondyear statistics major, shared that he had difficulty adapting to the amount of downtime he now has as a student, and learning to manage his own time and commitments. However, many veterans praised UVA for offering them opportunities they may not have had elsewhere. As a first-year computer science major with a young daughter, Dalton expressed gratitude for being afforded early enrollment and graduate housing for his family. He felt that these advantages helped him better navigate the university as an unconventional student: “I felt the UVA hand reach out,” he said. Halfway through the event, Ryan arrived to give the Veteran Student Center a check for $25,900 “due to the generosity of others,” he said, detailing the ways in which he wants to “make UVA synonymous with service.” He expressed admiration for those who have served in the military, and said he felt honored to be in the presence of student veterans, particularly on Veterans Day. UVA offi-

cials in attendance—many of whom were veterans themselves and work closely with student veterans—also shared stories about their time in the military. Though the students discussed their gratitude for the Veteran Student Center, some said they often faced additional stress because of the lack of representation in the upper echelons of UVA administration. Brett Schriever, a third-year aerospace engineering major, detailed his struggles getting help from the university when he faced complications with his GI Bill benefits. In the end, Schriever—who spent two years on active duty, and is now in his eighth year in the Army Reserves—said he had to ask another student veteran for advice. Marine Corps veteran and first-year student Romeo Sarmiento, treasurer of UVA’s Student Veterans chapter, expressed similar concerns. Sarmiento, who spent seven years as an infantry assaultman, articulated his disappointment that there is still no veteran representation among the university’s faculty, and that there are no faculty advisors to help veterans with all the aspects of their transition into university life. Sarmiento also explained the ways in which his time in the military affected his career path—he plans to apply to the McIntire School of Commerce, and eventually become a lawyer to serve his country in a new way. “Service doesn’t end,” he said. Concluding the event, Sarmiento expressed hope that the Veteran Student Center will be able to organize more events in the future incorporating the general student body. There is an “important opportunity for exchange,” he said.

An ‘unimaginably sad day’

Christopher Darnell Jones Jr. was taken into custody in Henrico, and arrested on three counts of second-degree murder and three counts of using a handgun in the commission of a felony.

“It was a really long night. People were really tense and pretty much everyone was terrified when we heard the car was going down Jefferson Park Avenue because we were right over there,” Sheridan said. First-year students remained locked down in dorms. Resident advisors told students to lock their doors and close their blinds. From the first-year Balz-Dobie dormitory, Esme Merrill reported that “the situation in the dorm is a really dark one. I just am so uncertain about what my next hour is going to look like, let alone what my college experience is going to be after the tragedy.” The messages from the UVA Alert system persisted, repeating that the suspect was at large and armed. He was described as a Black man wearing a burgundy jacket or hoodie, blue jeans, and red shoes. At around midnight, the local police scanner reported that, based on social media posts, the suspect seemed to be in GrandMarc, a residential apartment near Grounds. Emma Troischt, a third-year, lives on the fifth floor of GrandMarc. When she heard the news, she barricaded her door and locked herself in the bathroom of her studio unit. “Occasionally, I could hear

hree students were killed, two injured, and a community was left traumatized on November 13, following a shooting at the University of Virginia. The first message from the UVA Alert system notified the community of shots fired at Culbreth garage. It was followed seven minutes later by a report of a shooting on Culbreth Road. The third message urged students to “RUN. HIDE. FIGHT.” Students were advised to shelter in place as an active search persisted from 10:39pm on the 13th to 10:35 the following morning. The alert system sent a total of 57 messages during this period. Group chats were flooded with notes of love and support, and urged students to check in with friends and family. Students organized Zoom calls so they could be with one another, rather than alone and afraid. Five-hundred students spent the night in UVA buildings, including libraries and recreational facilities. Isabella Sheridan, a third-year and director of a performing arts program for first-years, sat with underclassmen as they sheltered in place at the Student Activities Building.

Crime scene tape was strung at the Culbreth Road Garage, near the spot where three UVA students were killed and two others injured on November 13.

Remembering those who were lost

D’Sean Perry was a junior reserve linebacker from Florida who appeared in six of the UVA football team’s 10 games. “D’Sean was an amazing soul that made his family and community proud,” said Earl Sims, the head football coach at Gulliver Preparatory School. Charles Snowden, UVA football alum and Tampa Bay Buccaneers outside linebacker, posted a tribute to Perry on Instagram: “D’Sean is the human embodiment of resilience and perseverance and I couldn’t be more proud of him. I really did try to pass down everything I’d learned because I knew he could be much better than I ever could.” Perry’s parents have decided not to speak publicly about the incident, “as their grief is only beginning, and out of respect for

footsteps outside in the hallway. It was terrifying not knowing if it was the police keeping us safe or him,” she said. At 1:20am, UVA Alerts officially named the suspect as Christopher Darnell Jones Jr. “This is a message any leader hopes never to have to send, and I am devastated that this violence has visited the University of Virginia,” UVA President Jim Ryan wrote in an email that went out at 4:27am. During a press conference later in the morning, Ryan fought back tears as he spoke of the “unimaginably sad day for our community.” The three students whose lives were stolen are Devin Chandler of Huntersville, North Carolina; Lavel Davis of Dorchester, South Carolina; and D’Sean Perry of Miami, Florida. Two of the slain victims were found inside the charter bus they had taken back from Washington, D.C., where they had been on a field trip to see a play. Two other students are hospitalized, one in critical condition and the other in good condition. Jones was arrested on three counts of second-degree murder and three counts of using a handgun in the

the University of Virginia community [which] has been terrorized by another mass shooting in the United States.” Lavel Davis Jr., a junior from South Carolina, was a starting wide receiver and the third-leading pass receiver on the team this season; he caught two touchdowns. Davis was also a member of the Groundskeepers, a group of Virginia football players that pushes for social change. “He never bothered a soul,” Kim Richardson, Davis’ aunt, said. “He just wanted everyone happy.” Jack Hamilton, one of Davis’ UVA professors, shared in a Twitter post: “One thing that struck me about Vel was how much his classmates liked him and vice versa. … In my experience, star athletes tend to hang out

with other athletes, but Vel seemed to go out of his way to make friends with non-athletes.” Devin Chandler transferred to Virginia from the University of Wisconsin, and had yet to play in a UVA football game. “He was so full of life. He was a great kid,” Alvis Whitted, a coach at Wisconsin, said. Hamilton, who also taught Chandler, called him “an unbelievably nice person, always a huge smile, really gregarious and funny. One of those people who’s just impossible not to like.” Wisconsin’s Defensive Coordinator Jim Leonhard said Chandler “had a lasting impact on his teammates, even after he left UW, which is a testament to the type of person he was.”

commission of a felony, and was taken into custody in Henrico, about 80 miles southeast of Charlottesville. At the press conference, UVA police chief Tim Longo reported that Jones had come to the attention of the university’s threat assessment team in the fall of 2022. He had made a comment about possessing a gun to a third party, but the comment was not made in conjunction with any threats. Jones was also connected to a hazing situation, though Longo had limited information about that investigation. A Richmond Times-Dispatch article noted that Jones’ parents divorced when he was 5 years old, and Jones described his father’s departure as “one of the most traumatic things that ever happened to me.” Following the divorce, Jones got into fights with other students and suffered disciplinary action as a result. He had a successful high school career, and Petersburg chose him as the top male studentathlete for an annual scholarship program. Little is known about Jones’ history on the UVA football team and his relationships with the players. “The search for the suspect may be over, but the work of understanding this terrible crime

“I cannot find the words to express the devastation and heartache that our team is feeling today after the tragic events last night that resulted in the deaths of Lavel, D’Sean and Devin, and the others who were injured,” said UVA football coach Tony Elliott. “These were incredible young men with huge aspirations and extremely bright futures. Our hearts ache for their families, their classmates, and their friends. These precious young men were called away too soon. We are all fortunate to have them be a part of our lives. They touched us, inspired us, and worked incredibly hard as representatives of our program, university, and community. Rest in peace, young men.”

and what motivated him to commit it is just beginning,” Ryan said in an email.

Gun violence on college campuses The shooting at UVA was at least the fifth since February on or near campuses in Virginia, according to reporting from The New York Times. According to the Gun Violence Archive, there have been more than 38,000 gun violence deaths since 2013. College-aged students have been habituated to fear shootings on their campuses—places meant to be havens of learning and growth. A generation has been shaped by the tragedies at Sandy Hook Elementary, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, and Virginia Tech. Many of the students who endured those shootings emerged as soldiers in a war that they never sought to fight. Jackson Mittleman, a senior at Georgetown University, launched a gun violence prevention group when he was just 11 years old, after experiencing “the worst day of [my] life,” at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

During a November 14 press conference, UVA Chief of Police Tim Longo (pictured here with UVA President Jim Ryan, third from left) updated the community on the search for the man who allegedly killed three UVA students and injured two others.

According to Goddard, faculty members don’t need to be psychological advisors, but they should allow students to talk freely when back in their classrooms. Once discharged from the hospital, Goddard recovered in the community at Virginia Tech. “It was super helpful to be there instead of being away,” he says. “Be in the community now.” After recovering from his wounds and getting his degree, Goddard volunteered for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, and eventually exposed the shortcomings of gun legislation in the film Living for 32. “People have to be active participants in honoring the lives and legacies of those who were impacted,” he says. “People have to work in any way that they can to make sure that some good comes from it in some way.” Goddard has persisted in his advocacy, and is reminded of the pain he and others experienced at Virginia Tech 15 years ago. “Right now, it’s important for the UVA community to come together, and to invite those from outside the university to join them, too. Virginia Tech greatly benefited from the community with the University of Virginia following the tragedy they suffered.” On the same day as tragedy struck the University of Virginia, a memorial was opened to commemorate the 20 children and six adults lost in the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary almost 10 years ago. One day later, on the evening of November 14, students gathered on the university’s South Lawn. They held candles up in remembrance of the classmates they lost just hours ago. In the coming days, they will mourn and remember together.

get together to address what they had just endured. “Find the time and space to be with one another and think about what healing looks like and what resources are needed,” Fuentes advises. Colin Goddard—a survivor who was shot four times in the Virginia Tech massacre of 2007— echoes Fuentes’ and Mittleman’s calls for unity. “It’s more important that students talk, not necessarily to experts, but it’s the talking that is what’s important,” Goddard says.

November 16 - 22, 2022 c-ville.com

In 2018, he spoke at the March for Our Lives Rally, organized in response to what happened at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. “The Sandy Hook shooting should have been the last shooting in our nation but there have been more and more every day,” he said. Today, many shootings later, Mittleman has advice for UVA students: “First of all, keep an eye on yourself,” he says. “Make sure that you feel comfortable putting yourself in a position where you have to engage with this sensitive and difficult situation of gun violence, especially given that you’ve experienced it so recently.” Mittleman believes the way to avoid the normalization of such a tragedy is to talk about it. “You have to continue to highlight the impact that this has had on your life. You are now one of thousands of communities, schools, and groups that have experienced gun violence.” Mittleman shared that there are many communities and groups that students can join if they feel compelled to take a stand. “Keep being loud,” he says. Samantha Fuentes is an artist, songwriter, and survivor of the 2018 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Fuentes became an advocate for gun violence prevention after suffering multiple injuries by a fellow student who killed 17 and injured 17 with an AR-15. Fuentes believes the most productive immediate action for the UVA community to pursue is “togetherness. … Everyone is grief and trauma-stricken. At these times people want to self-isolate, but the act of being together is very important.” In the days following the shooting, Parkland students organized a town hall and invited community members and local political leadership to

J

ordan Rock’s big brother has been a household name for the comedian’s entire life. That’s certainly had a significant effect on his still-burgeoning career as an actor and stand-up artist—but the Rock clan’s youngest member tries hard not to let Chris’ outsized influence define him. “It’s definitely a balance. I’m still trying to figure it out,” Rock says. “Sometimes I do wish my name was just Ronaldo or whatever. People will say, ‘He’s funny, but he’s not as funny as Chris.’ They already have this bar that I have to be at.” Rock, who’ll join Sean Donnelly, Liz Miele, and Funnyman Skiba for the United Nations of Comedy Tour on November 18 at The Paramount Theater, has certainly plotted his own course. Where his older brother rocketed to fame as a “Saturday Night Live” cast member from 1990 to 1993, Jordan Rock’s been doing stand-up for more than a decade and has slowly developed a workman-like following. Rock also had success as an actor, becoming an unlikely romantic comedy darling on television with recurring roles on HBO’s “Love Life’’ and Netflix’s “Love.” “I feel like I’ve discovered the multiverse of rom-coms,” he says. On the silver screen, the actor’s buzziest role was in Big Time Adolescence, an award-winning indie starring Pete Davidson. TV and movies come and go, though, Rock says. What he says hasn’t gone away since he was 18 years old is stand-up. And he constantly works on being a better comic. Over the years, Rock’s had plenty of ups while holding the mic, earning the public respect of the likes of Jerry Seinfeld and Dave Chappelle, as well as some downs—like any comedian, he’s bombed more than a couple times with sets that just didn’t go over. Now, after 20 years of refining his style and content, he says his “sweet spot … is trying to walk the line and address some things where people are kind of asking, ‘Is he with it or against it?’” At the age of 31, most of Rock’s jokes draw on millennial tropes, taking a meta look at modern social media-driven culture or poking fun at his boomer forebears. “I’m still learning about putting together sets,” he says. “I don’t want to do it the way everybody else has been doing it. I want people to hear a joke and say, ‘I wasn’t looking at it like that, but he has a point.’” Other than a short bit on “The Slap” that Rock did for a few weeks after this year’s Academy Awards, the comedian doesn’t talk much about his famous sibling during shows. He does, however, maintain a close relationship with Chris offstage. In fact, he rarely makes a decision about his career without consulting his big brother.

Jordan Rock (yes, he is Chris’ brother) pokes fun at millennials and boomers alike at the Paramount on Friday, November 18.

“He’s the person I can call and talk to and get reassurance that the game works a certain way.” JORDAN ROCK

“As I get older, I get closer and closer to him,” Rock says. “I’m trying to go places that he’s been before. He’s the person I can call and talk to and get reassurance that the game works a certain way.” That’s a respect Rock’s had for his superstar comedian bro since kindergarten. One morning, his school’s announcements included a note about the HBO special “Bigger and Blacker” winning an Emmy. “That’s when I realized, ‘My brother is really doing something, and it’s cool,’”Rock says. According to Rock, coming of age in the house that Chris built has actually made the scrutiny easier for him to handle than some other family members. Unlike his parents and his older brothers and sisters, he doesn’t remember a time when he wasn’t the youngest sibling of a huge star. “Most of them had established their personas, and this thing was dumped on them,” he says.

Rock last did a Charlottesville show in early 2017. One of the things he remembers best about the date is that, just a few months later, “something horrible happened there.” He says to expect him to come with all new material: “I’ve turned it over in five years,” he jokes. The Paramount show will be one of Rock’s shorter sets; with Donnelly, Miele, and Skiba also on the docket, he won’t be “name dropping” his famous pals or telling long personal anecdotes. “It’ll be a bunch of stuff no one has seen,” he says. “I have some good new jokes—some of them might be topical, some of them might be from the news. I try to stay current.” The United Nations of Comedy Tour, “founded to promote diversity through laughter,” is now in its 11th year. The show, for which C-VILLE Weekly is a presenting sponsor, moved to the Paramount from the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center in 2018. Over the years, it’s featured comedians like Irene Morales, Mike Recine, Antoine Scott, and Brendan Eyre. Rock can’t wait to be the latest headliner. “For me, Virginia’s always been the best. … I used to hop on the bus to go from New York to Virginia—I didn’t care if it was six hours,” he says. “Expect to see a better version of the comic I was the last time I was there.”

By Rob Brezsny

Sagittarius

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21): I like Sagittarian healer and author Caroline Myss because she’s both spiritual and practical, compassionate and fierce. Here’s a passage from her work that I think will be helpful for you in the coming weeks: “Get bored with your past. It’s over! Forgive yourself for what you think you did or didn’t do, and focus on what you will do, starting now.” To ensure you make the most of her counsel, I’ll add a further insight from author Augusten Burroughs: “You cannot be a prisoner of your past against your will—because you can only live in the past inside your mind.”

Capricorn

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): How would you respond if you learned that the $55 T-shirt you’re wearing was made by a Haitian kid who earned 10 cents for her work? Would you stop wearing the shirt? Donate it to a thrift store? Send money to the United Nations agency UNICEF, which works to protect Haitian child laborers? I recommend the latter option. I also suggest you use this as a prompt to engage in leisurely meditations on what you might do to reduce the world’s suffering. It’s an excellent time to stretch your imagination to understand how your personal life is interwoven with the lives of countless others, many of whom you don’t even know. And I hope you will think about how to offer extra healings and blessings not just to your allies, but also to strangers. What’s in it for you? Would this bring any selfish benefits your way? You may be amazed at how it leads you to interesting connections that expand your world.

Aquarius

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Aquarian philosopher Alfred North Whitehead wrote, “The silly question is the first intimation of some totally new development.” He also said, “Every really new idea looks crazy at first.” With these thoughts in mind, Aquarius, I will tell you that you are now in the Season of the Silly Question. I invite you to enjoy dreaming up such queries. And as you indulge in that fertile pleasure, include another: Celebrate the Season of Crazy Ideas.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Scorpio author Sylvia Plath had a disturbing, melodramatic relationship with romance. In one of her short stories, for example, she has a woman character say, “His love is the twenty-story leap, the rope at the throat, the knife at the heart.” I urge you to avoid contact with people who think and feel like that—as glamorous as they might seem. In my view, your romantic destiny in the coming months can and should be uplifting, exciting in healthy ways, and conducive to your well-being. There’s no need to link yourself with shadowy renegades when there will be plenty of radiant helpers available. entertainment industry’s stories are sad or tormented or horrendously painful. They influence us to think such stories are the norm. They tend to darken our view of life. While I would never try to coax you to avoid all those stories, Pisces, I will encourage you to question whether maybe it’s wise to limit how many you absorb. The coming weeks will be an excellent time to explore this possibility. Be willing to say, “These sad, tormented, painful stories are not ones I want to invite into my imagination.” Try this experiment: For the next three weeks, seek out mostly uplifting tales.

Aries

(March 21-April 19): Virginia Woolf wrote a passage that I suspect will apply to you in the coming weeks. She said, “There is no denying the wild horse in us. To gallop intemperately; fall on the sand tired out; to feel the earth spin; to have—positively—a rush of friendship for stones and grasses—there is no getting over the fact that this desire seizes us.” Here’s my question for you, Aries: How will you harness your wild horse energy? I’m hoping that the self-possessed human in you will take command of the horse and direct it to serve you and yours with constructive actions. It’s fine to indulge in some intemperate galloping, too. But I’ll be rooting for a lot of temperate and disciplined galloping.

Taurus

(April 20-May 20): “The failure of love might account for most of the suffering in the world,” writes poet Marie Howe. I agree with that statement. Many of us have had painful episodes revolving around people who no longer love us and people whose lack of love for us makes us feel hurt. That’s the bad news, Taurus. The good news is that you now have more power than usual to heal the failures of love

you have endured in the past. You also have an expanded capacity to heal others who have suffered from the failures of love. I hope you will be generous in your ministrations!

Gemini

(May 21-June 20): Many Geminis tell me they are often partly awake as they sleep. In their dreams, they might work overtime trying to solve waking-life problems. Or they may lie in bed in the dark contemplating intricate ideas that fascinate them, or perhaps ruminating on the plot developments unfolding in a book they’ve been reading or a TV show they’ve been bingeing. If you are prone to such behavior, I will ask you to minimize it for a while. In my view, you need to relax your mind extra deeply and allow it to play luxuriously with non-utilitarian fantasies and dreams. You have a sacred duty to yourself to explore mysterious and stirring feelings that bypass rational thought.

Nor do you need prods and encouragement to do so. As a Leo, you most likely have abundant talent in the epicurean arts. But as you prepare to glide into the lush and lusty heart of the Sensuality Season, it can’t hurt to offer you a pep talk from your fellow Leo bon vivant, James Baldwin. He said: “To be sensual is to respect and rejoice in the force of life, of life itself, and to be present in all that one does, from the effort of loving to the breaking of bread.”

Virgo

Cancer

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Many Virgos are on a lifelong quest to cultivate a knack described by Sigmund Freud: “In the small matters, trust the mind. In the large ones, the heart.” And I suspect you are now at a pivotal point in your efforts to master that wisdom. Important decisions are looming in regards to both small and large matters. I believe you will do the right things as long as you empower your mind to do what it does best and your heart to do what it does best.

Leo

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Social media like Facebook and Twitter feed on our outrage. Their algorithms are designed to stir up our disgust and indignation. I confess that I get semi-caught in their trap. I am sometimes seduced by the temptation to feel lots of umbrage and wrath, even though those feelings comprise a small minority of my total emotional range. As an antidote, I proactively seek experiences that rouse my wonder and sublimity and holiness. In the next two weeks, Libra, I invite you to cultivate a focus like mine. It’s high time for a phase of minimal anger and loathing—and maximum reverence and awe.

(June 21-July 22): Here are my two key messages for you. 1. Remember where you hide important stuff. 2. Remember that you have indeed hidden some important stuff. Got that? Please note that I am not questioning your urge to lock away a secret or two. I am not criticizing you for wanting to store a treasure that you are not yet ready to use or reveal. It’s completely understandable if you want to keep a part of your inner world off-limits to certain people for the time being. But as you engage in any or all of these actions, make sure you don’t lose touch with your valuables. And don’t forget why you are stashing them. (July 23-Aug. 22): I know I don’t have to give you lessons in expressing your sensuality.

Remains Strong Despite Headwinds BY CARLA HUCKABEE

T

After being vacant for five years, redevelopment of the ten-acre former Kmart site has enough momentum to warrant a name: Hillsdale Place.

he local commercial real estate market had its own October surprise with the announcement that TELUS Corporation is acquiring WillowTree for more than $1.2 billion. Billion with a B. With that transaction as the backdrop, it’s hard to focus on headwinds, but they exist and should not be ignored. Supply chain disruptions remain. Inflation has not yet been tamed. The cost of borrowing continues to rise. And climate change is not backing down. Despite all that, experts agree that the Central Virginia commercial real estate market remains strong. Local businesses stilll profit from enduring tailwinds. Public investments in infrastructure are making a real difference. UVA continues to exert its strength. Businesses are forging ahead with expansions and new openings. Consumers continue to consume. All in all, the local commercial real estate market presents intriguing opportunities.

Infrastructure Investment Sets the Stage As Neil Williamson, President of the Free Enterprise Forum, is fond of saying, “Local infrastructure investment feeds economic development.” All around Central Virginia local infrastructure investments are setting the

stage for robust commercial developments. Universal broadband is becoming a reality. Cranes are piercing the sky in Charlottesville and surrounding areas. Transportation investments at key interchanges and intersections are making a difference. SMART SCALE upgrades are bringing our transit into the 21st century. Heck, even public bathrooms on Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall count as infrastructure investments. In Augusta County at the Shenandoah Valley Airport, two new hangars will be complete by next summer. Executive Director Lisa Botkin says “The hangars allow the airport to keep up with technological advances in aviation.” Think electric aircraft and E-VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) technology. Crane #1 in Charlottesville has been hovering over the Belmont Bridge all year. The span is expected to be completed in early 2024 using $38 million of city, state, and federal funds. The new bridge will smooth traffic, sort out a five-way intersection, and provide safer transit for cyclists and pedestrians. Charlottesville cranes #2 and #3 are making quick work of the long-anticipated redevelopment of Friendship Court. Phase I is coming out of the ground with two buildings of stacked townhouses and a 71-unit multifamily building. This is the beginning of a total transformation of this 12-acre superblock near down-

town. When it’s done, the existing 150 low-income residents will become part of a community of 450 mixed-income households in a mixed-use setting. Phase I will welcome residents to their new homes next spring. Across town, after being vacant for five years, redevelopment of the ten-acre former Kmart site has enough momentum to warrant a name: Hillsdale Place. But it’s held captive by pending street infrastructure. Thalhimer First Vice President Jenny Stoner says “Riverbend Development has been working with the city to advance this project. The city and VDOT are hammering out details for a roundabout to replace the Hillsdale traffic light. Once that is finalized, we hope that at long last a site plan can get approved and site work can begin. There are conditional commitments from two anchor tenants. “Without the final configuration of the roundabout, there’s no site plan, and no confirmed number of pad sites and parking spaces. Without a site plan, work can’t start. “But once that domino falls, it will unlock a lot of activity along the Hillsdale corridor.”

UVA as Economic Engine If anyone questions the impact the University of Virginia has on the Central Virginia economy and commercial real estate arena, a drive through the Emmet Street/Ivy Road corridor will quickly change their mind. Last month UVA broke ground on a new hotel and conference center. The $130.5 million project will include 25,000 square feet of conference space and 214 hotel rooms and is part of a much larger undertaking. A pedestrian walkway over Emmet Street will create a welcome entrance to the university grounds. And along Ivy Road, construction continues with the School of Data Science. Eventually, walkers will be able to stroll from Boars Head resort all the way to Emmet Street. Around the corner, another new hotel is under construction to replace the UVA Inn at Darden. This five-story hotel will open next spring with 199 rooms and more than 11,000 square feet of meeting space. UVA has also committed to new strategies to work more closely with local businesses. A three-phase plan is in place that, by 2025, will double the percentage

interest. On Berkmar Drive we’re getting ready to close on a commercial site. “Right now, there’s just no sign of any place slowing down. At some point, inflation and interest rates will impact consumers and businesses. But it hasn’t happened yet.” As a testament to continued consumption, several new self-storage services are at various stages of development in and around Charlottesville.

that partner with the University. Not only does UVA gobble up real estate, attract visitors and alumni, spinoff startups, and shelter this region from some downward economic pressures, this new plan may also spark additional growth and expansion among local businesses.

Foot Traffic Essential Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall will be 50 years old in 2023. The city is preparing for the milestone by opening public restrooms, considering replacing dying trees, increasing accessibility for people with disabilities, adding more seating, and reopening the Downtown Transit Center. A celebratory mood is already in the air with The Front Porch’s doors wide open and mall walkers drawn down the street by a drum circle’s infectious beat. Despite two consecutive weekends of violence last month, foot traffic on the Downtown Mall is brisk. Everyone hopes those were isolated incidents rather than a dangerous trend. A new visitors center opened next to Old Metropolitan Hall. Concierges at the Charlottesville Insider advise visitors and locals on what to do in the area and on the Downtown Mall. General Manager Hannah Mills and Concierge Katie McFarland are excited about what they’ve seen since the doors opened. “It’s been great so far,” says Mills. “We have lots of foot traffic and an incredible amount of interest in what we’re doing. The businesses appreciate having us send traffic their way and the tourists love having a one-stop shop to get advice. Even people who live here find out something new and fun to do when they stop in.” McFarland says, “Halloween weekend was packed, as is every UVA home football weekend. We may see some decline as winter approaches, but this weather has been great for all the businesses that rely on foot traffic. “There are some key vacancies on the mall, like the Union Bank building, and the CODE building’s ground floor retail space, but it feels like things are picking up.” Expect them to pick up even more. Stoner says, “There are some great Class A historic office suites coming online in The Exchange. It’s above Rockfish Brewing Company, the site of the former Downtown Grille space. We already have one section under lease because it’s such a great location and the historic rehab turned out so nicely. “I expect the two floors in The Exchange will go quickly. In general, we’re seeing office space tick back up as some businesses and workers shift back to working onsite rather than from home or embrace a hybrid model. The 2,500 to 6,000 square foot office configurations seem to be the slowest to fill.” Thalhimer’s third quarter report for the Charlottesville area shows office vacancies remaining below five percent and prices trending upwards.

Still Eating Out, Still Buying Throughout the region, storefronts and restaurants are holding their own.

Commercial/Industrial Zones Growing

Some newly opened restaurants in downtown Staunton include Accordia for wine and cheese pairings, Sweet Addie’s for “the best Belgian waffles on the planet.”

Patrons, especially the COVID-conscious, are celebrating November’s warm weather with great al fresco dining options. Peter Wray, Principal Broker with Triangle Realtors, says “I have not yet seen a drop off in the restaurant or retail sectors, but that could quickly change. Certainly, rising interest rates have the potential to put the brakes on. With another rate hike by the Federal Reserve just this month it’s hard to generalize, but that might be enough to slow the commercial sector down.” For now, expansion is going full tilt. Everywhere. Despite rising interest rates, inflation, and lingering supply chain issues. Even as record-low Mississippi River water levels begin to impede barge traffic. Growth in the commercial market continues in Crozet. Stoner reports, “This next phase of Old Trail includes some badly needed office, retail, and restaurant space. It will come online pretty quickly and will help that market while the redevelopment of The Square in downtown Crozet takes shape.

“In Charlottesville, there’s an opportunity for a restauranteur to come into the space being vacated by Little Star Restaurant on West Main Street.” Wray explains, “It doesn’t matter what side of the mountains you’re on. Waynesboro has a half dozen sites that are filling up. In Staunton Crossing there’s one front parcel left and we have eight acres in the back.” Three newly opened restaurants in downtown Staunton include Accordia for wine and cheese pairings, Sweet Addie’s for “the best Belgian waffles on the planet,” and Brisket Taco Co.’s bricksand-mortar store after their resounding farmer’s market and festival success. Wray continues, “I’m excited about what I see, both in the Shenandoah Valley and on the Charlottesville side. We’re 100 percent leased at the Starbucks site on Fifth Street and under contract for the space behind that. On Route 29 North we have six acres, in Pantops at the former Flow Mazda site…almost everywhere, we are seeing a tremendous amount of

Throughout the region, counties try to meet demand by balancing agricultural and business or industrial zoning. Fluvanna County Economic Development Director Jennifer Schmack reports on a flurry of activity in the Zion Crossroads area. “A groundbreaking ceremony was held for a project that will provide 250,000 square feet of much-needed industrial flex space. And the Planning Commission has scheduled two public hearings for the rezoning of 80 acres to I-1 Light Industrial, also in the Zion Crossroads area.” The first building of that industrial flex space has already been claimed by PODS®, the national storage container company. There will be three additional buildings on the site. Commercial development in Fluvanna expands beyond Zion Crossroads. “The Board of Supervisors approved the rezoning of 35 acres from agricultural to business for a commercial center on Lake Monticello Road,” says Schmack. “Wolfpack Properties, LLC plans to bring approximately 146,000 square feet of business commercial space to the county.” A medical emergency center and a grocery store are being discussed as potential uses for the site. Keep an eye out for more commercial development in the pipeline in Fluvanna County. “There are still several more projects in the works,” says Schmack. Meanwhile, in Orange County, Economic Director Rose Deal reports that MPS, a division of Macmillan Publishers, will invest more than $26 million to expand its distribution operation in Orange County. Louisa County is considering a rezoning request to develop more than 15 acres for a planned unit development called Lake Anna Resort. It includes a hotel, a condominium building, a restaurant/ bar, and marina services. Ruckersville, in Greene County, has rezoned a final parcel along Route 29 from agricultural to business, allowing for MedExpress to locate there. “Overall, the commercial real estate market in nearly all sectors is strong,” says Wray. “Markets typically move in cycles. Sometimes there’s lots of opportunity and sometimes you have to look a little harder. But the opportunity is almost always there if you know where to look.” This market is putting opportunity right out in the open. But you’d better grab it now in case the headwinds begin to strengthen. Carla Huckabee writes about high-performing real estate.
