THIS WEEK Hello, Charlottesville! Thank you for reading C-VILLE Weekly. The holidays tend to sneak up on me. And yet, they begin at the same time every year—as sure as taxes and Madden (as the saying goes). Even that big tree on the Downtown Mall seemed to slowly take shape over the span of days. By the time I realized what it was for, it was almost December (the tree will be lit up and glowing at the Grand Illumination on Friday, December 2!). But perhaps that says more about me than the season. When I worked retail, Christmas music was playing almost as soon as Halloween was over. You knew what was coming. Thanksgiving doesn’t get quite the same fanfare as our various end-of-year festivities, though. Black Friday has steadily creeped into its hallowed date, hour by hour, signaling the jingle-jangle shopping season as soon as the last plate piles up in the sink. Deals are great— I’ll never shame anyone for wanting to save a buck—but let’s not let our shopping sprees diminish the true star of the holiday: food. This week’s issue is well-timed: it’s our food and drink annual, coinciding with what is perhaps America’s biggest celebration of eating. Our expansive feature (p. 20) looks at Charlottesville restaurants big and small, from the sparkling variety of menus around town to the talented chefs and visionary proprietors who make culinary dreams a reality. Sure, Thanksgiving is traditionally a cook-at-home affair, but what about the rest of the week? Get out there and treat yourself.—Richard DiCicco

NEWS Another delay The Virginia Board of Education delayed its review of the state’s new proposed history and social science learning standards again on November 17, following backlash from advocacy groups, politicians, educators, parents, and others. Critics denounced the proposal for omitting Martin Luther King Jr. from elementary standards, and referring to Indigenous people as “immigrants,” among other issues, and accused Governor Glenn Youngkin’s administration of whitewashing history. The board directed Jillian Balow, superintendent of public instruction, to correct the errors and omissions, as well as incorporate public feedback and content from an August draft— which was based on more than two years of input from hundreds of educators, historians, and other experts—into a revised proposal. In-person and virtual input sessions on the standards will be held November 28 through December 16.

Cole Hendrix

New committee

The Virginia State Police are leading the multijurisdictional investigation of the shooting of three University of Virginia football players, who were allegedly killed by another UVA student.

The Daily Progress. UVA bans weapons and ammunition on school property. A November 16 press release from Dance’s Sporting Goods in Colonial Heights, Virginia, said that Jones legally purchased a rifle and pistol from the shop this year. Jones had unsuccessfully tried to buy guns there before—he failed a background check in 2018 for being underage, and another one in 2021 due to a pending felony charge. The attempts were reported to the VSP. During UVA’s investigation into a hazing incident involving Jones in September, a third party said they heard Jones say he had a gun. Officials spoke with the person who reported Jones and Jones’ roommate, who said he never saw him with a weapon, but it remains unclear if they interviewed Jones. The investigation was closed after witnesses would not cooperate.

However, officials investigating the incident discovered that Jones had been convicted of carrying a concealed weapon without a permit in 2021. Because Jones did not report his crime to the university, violating school policy, the student affairs office warned Jones in October that his case would be submitted to the University Judiciary Committee—but the case was not submitted until after the shooting, according to UVA spokesman Brian Coy. Last year, Jones was also charged with a felony for not remaining at the scene of a car accident, but the charge was later reduced to a misdemeanor. Attorney General Jason Miyares’ office announced on November 17 that it would appoint a special counsel to independently review UVA’s threat assessment of Jones, and its response to the shooting, which the university requested.


The City of Charlottesville is forming a committee to discuss the challenges and issues facing the Downtown Mall, and propose potential solutions for the next 50 years, as the pedestrian mall nears its 50th birthday. “It is necessary to revisit maintenance, improvements, and enhancements. … We need to ensure everyone is welcome and has a quality experience,” reads a city press release. Committee applications are available on the city website, and must be submitted by December 20.


ew details have emerged since a shooter killed three students and injured two others at the University of Virginia last week. On November 13, suspect Christopher Darnell Jones Jr. and 21 other students, along with a professor, traveled to Washington, D.C., to see a play. As the group’s bus arrived back at UVA at around 10:15pm, Jones allegedly shot at students, fired additional rounds while exiting the bus, and fled in his vehicle. Officers found a handgun near the scene, according to the Virginia State Police, which is leading the multijurisdictional investigation. After a more than 12-hour manhunt and campus lockdown, police arrested Jones, 23, in Henrico County on November 14. Jones is accused of killing Devin Chandler, 20, Lavel Davis Jr., 20, and D’Sean Perry, 22, and injuring Michael Hollins, 19—all UVA football players. Student Marlee Morgan, 19, was also injured during the shooting. GoFundMe has verified fundraisers for Davis, Chandler, Perry, and Morgan. On November 21, Hollins—who told his family he was shot after running off the bus and then returning to help his classmates— was released from the hospital after undergoing surgeries. Morgan was discharged on November 15. Jones, a walk-on member of the football team during the 2018 season, has been charged with three felony counts of second-degree murder, among other crimes. On November 16, Jones appeared via videostream in Albemarle General District Court, and was ordered to be held without bond at Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail. He agreed to be represented by a public defender, but said he planned to hire a lawyer. The judge set a status hearing for December 8. According to Albemarle County Commonwealth’s Attorney Jim Hingeley, a witness told police that Jones shot Chandler while he was sleeping, and aimed at certain people on the bus, reports NBC29. However, the motive for the shooting remains unclear. The VSP seized a semiautomatic rifle, pistol, ammunition, and magazines, among other items, from Jones’ dorm room, reports



Former Charlottesville city manager Cole Hendrix, who led the city from 1971 to 1997, passed away on November 15, according to a city press release. During his tenure, Hendrix spurred the creation of the Downtown Mall, Omni Charlottesville Hotel, and Rivanna Water and Sewer Authority. He was 88 years old.

Permanent solution Shelter will shut down for affordable housing construction By Brielle Entzminger reporter@c-ville.com



Next spring, the Premier Circle shelter will shut down, and be turned into permanent supportive housing for unhoused and low-income people.

CEO Sunshine Mathon expects the complex to be a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom units, and says the residents may have access to some of VSH’s services, like counseling. Over the next one to two years, PHA will apply for low-income tax credits for the project, and hopes to complete construction 14 to 18 months after breaking ground. “We’ve been blessed to have a supportive city, county, [and] state to make this project work,” says BRACH Executive Director Anthony Haro. “We’re excited for the next stage.” This month, the City of Charlottesville and Albemarle County gave $200,000 each to the shelter, covering its operating expenses from January until it closes its doors in April—a “big relief ” for the shelter’s management, says Haro. “A lot of the funding we used … over the last two years has been COVID relief funding at the state and local levels,” says Haro.

“We’re excited for the next stage.” ANTHONY HARO, BRACH EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

“These last few months, we needed some more funding support to make it through, and really help folks transition over these next four months into housing.” Since this spring, PACEM and BRACH have been working closely with shelter guests— many of whom are elderly, and have serious illnesses—to create housing plans and find them a new place to live, in partnership with local housing authorities. In mid-October, the shelter stopped accepting new guests, in order to focus on transitioning guests into permanent housing. Between 60 and 70 people currently live at the shelter, according to PACEM Executive Director Jayson Whitehead. “We’ve had different types of housing vouchers dedicated to folks living at this

fter purchasing the Red Carpet Inn off Route 29 in Albemarle County last March, the Piedmont Housing Alliance renovated the 40-year-old rundown motel, and transformed it into an emergency shelter for people experiencing homelessness, thanks to a $4.25 million grant from the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation. Since the low-barrier shelter—managed by People and Congregations Engaged in Ministry and the Blue Ridge Area Coalition for the Homeless—opened its doors last May, it has provided 177 unhoused people a safe, welcoming place to stay, in addition to meals, clothing, case management, health care, employment assistance, substance abuse treatment, and other necessities and resources. But in April, the Premier Circle shelter will shut down, and the former motel will be transformed once again into something desperately needed in the Charlottesville area: affordable housing. Virginia Supportive Housing plans to start building 80 permanent supportive housing units at the site in May. The studio apartments will be available to single adults experiencing homelessness, or earning below 50 percent of the area median income. Onsite supportive services, like case management, will be available to residents, as well as a fitness center, community room, laundry facility, and other amenities. VSH has received low-income tax credit awards to help pay for the approximately $20 million project, but is working to secure around $3 million more in funding. Construction is expected to last about 15 months, and be completed in fall 2024, according to Director of Real Estate Development Julie Anderson. After VSH finishes construction, the PHA plans to build around 50 affordable housing units for low-income people making no more than 60 percent AMI. While the project’s design has not been finalized yet, PHA

site, so we’ve been able to transition around 15 folks to permanent housing since September,” says Whitehead. The deteriorating condition of the former motel has further stressed the need for permanent housing solutions. Though 92 of the facility’s 115 rooms were renovated, “we did start to really experience at some point this past summer really sizable failure in rooms,” says Whitehead, “like roof leaks, floors giving way—all types of things that really were reducing the amount of rooms we had to offer.” Once the shelter shuts down and housing construction begins, PACEM and BRACH will still work to find emergency shelter for people experiencing homelessness, and connect them with affordable housing. During the cold winter months, PACEM will also continue to offer overnight shelter at local churches, gymnasiums, and other community spaces. The organization opened its annual temporary congregate shelters on November 14, and plans to close them at the end of March. “We’ve been pretty full,” says Whitehead. Additionally, BRACH currently has two hotel rooms available for unhoused people who are at high risk of becoming severely ill or dying from COVID-19 and need to avoid congregate settings, thanks to a partnership with the University of Virginia. “We haven’t received many requests [for the rooms] … over the past six months or so, [but] that may change this winter,” says Haro. “It’s been a great resource when it comes up.” But to ensure no one has to sleep on the streets at any time of year, the organizations are working to eventually open a permanent shelter. When PACEM’s temporary shelters are not running, the Salvation Army’s 58bed overnight shelter is the sole year-round option for unhoused people in Charlottesville—and it’s often at capacity. “There’s a clear need for [another yearround shelter] in the community,” says Haro. “And there’s been an interest from PACEM and our partners to make that happen.”

pictures of the trio, narrated by teammates and past coaches. The most gut-wrenching speeches were delivered by the slain players’ football teammates. Second-year student Cody Brown spoke about a funny, confident, and kind Chandler whose “smile alone was enough to brighten anyone’s day.” He uttered a tearful goodbye to his fallen friend. “We love you so much, and know you’re smiling down on us in Heaven.” Third-year student Jared Rayman painted a portrait of Davis as a “natural-born

s I reflect on the University of Virginia’s memorial service honoring the victims of the November 13 shooting, it is a struggle to put my thoughts into words. I could mention the names of those who spoke, like UVA President Jim Ryan, Athletic Director Carla Williams, or the large number of students who knew the three young men who were killed. I could tell you what they said about Devin Chandler, D’Sean Perry, and Lavel Davis Jr, the stories they told. I could reflect on the many tears that were shed. But all of this would fail to fully illustrate the pain and suffering present in John Paul Jones Arena on a cold November afternoon. Words fail to express the utter horror I felt while watching the victims’ families walk slowly from the stage to their seats. No words can convey their suffering, yet it reverberated around the arena—and made the space feel like the smallest, most intimate room. Williams admired Chandler’s penchant for dancing—his close relatives fondly referred to him as “Devin the Dancing Machine.” She spoke of Davis’ extreme enjoyment of the 18 scrambled eggs his grandmother made him every time he came home. She recounted that a young Perry insisted on dressing as a red Power Ranger for Halloween, and that he refused to take the costume off until Thanksgiving. Her stories gave every person who did not know these three young men a hint of the lives they led—and it was devastating. She ended her speech with a promise to their families: “We love your sons, and we will make sure their legacy never fades at the University of Virginia.” The speeches were interspersed with musical selections by the Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Choir and gospel singer Cece Winans, as well as videos showing

thing that lessens my grief is the memory of your infectious smile.” First-year student Matt Bettridge admired Perry for many years at their Miami high school, viewing him as a mentor and role model. Reading a letter he wrote to his beloved friend, he said, “Your presence was felt each and every day that I was able to step on the field and share it with you.” Bettridge urged those attending the memorial service to “fight for what you want, and fight for the people you love the most. D’Sean was the best fighter I knew—and always pushed himself to be the best person on and off the field.” Though these speeches could not begin to encompass the richness of the lives of the three men, they offered a glimpse of the smiling, energetic, and kind individuals they were. And for that, I will forever be grateful to their teammates who shared these stories in the midst of their deep, intense grief. UVA football coach Tony Elliott closed out the service by reading a Bible passage, wishing peace to those affected by the tragedy. He also reflected on his time with the three men, pointing to a moment Davis took him by the shoulder during a practice to tell him something important: “Coach, I’m starting to understand it. It’s the little things that matter.” Elliott praised how Chandler brought joy to everyone around him.“You felt and heard Devin before you ever saw him,” he said. The coach also spoke of Perry—who “on the inside [was] intricately woven together with life, beauty, and love”—with much reverence. As everyone filed out of the arena in nearcomplete silence, I was thankful for all that I had learned about the young men, and overwhelmed by the enormity of the loss. Though the feelings in that arena were almost too much to bear, I hope it will give the families and friends of Perry, Chandler, and Davis one simple assurance: We will remember them.

Tavola’s Alicia Simmons balances tradition with creativity and kindness


“I love cooking for all the foodies [in this area], people who appreciate our open kitchen and seeing how hard we work.”

@cville_culture facebook.com/cville.weekly

Alicia Simmons prides herself on preparing some of the area’s finest cuisine, and she says part of her job is teaching others.

Tavola in 2015. In addition to making desserts at the popular Belmont restaurant, she prepped food and helped serve private events. Soon, she was working on the line and putting together salads for Tavola’s then-chef de cuisine Caleb Warr, “a great mentor who took me under his wing and really showed me how a chef is also a teacher,” says Simmons. “He was so patient, and took the time to show me all the little things.” Eventually promoted to sous chef, Simmons was named the Italian eatery’s executive chef in 2021. On a typical day, she arrives at Tavola around 11am to receive the day’s food orders (many of the restaurant’s ingredients come from local farms, and its specials are based on what’s in season), and begin prepping, which means everything from baking bread or cheesecake to preparing sauces or butchering half a pig. “That’s the joy of it,” says Simmons, who earned Best Chef honors in this year’s Best of C-VILLE competition. “And I love cooking for all the foodies here, people who appreciate our open kitchen and seeing how hard we work. They see it all go down, and they like the food even more [because of it].” Simmons prides herself on preparing some of the area’s finest cuisine (linguine alla carbonara, anyone?), but she also makes it a priority to share her culinary knowledge, scoffing at those TV and movie chefs who terrorize their kitchen employees. “Nobody appreciates going to work and being yelled at,” Simmons says. “I had great teachers coming up. And I want to reflect the way my grandma, Justin, Caleb, and [Tavola co-owner and chef] Michael Keaveny treated me. You need to enjoy your job to enjoy cooking. A big part of what I do is take the time to show everyone else how it’s done, so they can take what they learn and teach someone else and keep the ball rolling.”—Susan Sorensen

ASK ALICIA SIMMONS ABOUT HER HAPPIEST childhood memories, and she immediately recalls the many hours spent in the kitchen with her twin sister and grandmother at the family’s farm in the Shenandoah Valley. “We made lunch for dad and grandpa every day,” says Tavola’s executive chef. “That’s how I fell in love with cooking.” Growing up on a farm formed Simmons’ appreciation of food because she knew the hands that touched every morsel she helped prepare and then consumed, the amount of work it took to get an ear of corn from a seed in the ground to her plate. “Farmers,” she says, “are more appreciated now than they used to be. But growing up, farmers were my heroes.” Her grandfather was a dairy farmer who grew a variety of crops, and also raised ducks, pheasant, and trout. “I was lucky to see it all,” says Simmons, 28, adding that it came as little surprise to anyone when she enrolled in the culinary arts program at Valley Career & Technical Center. “Basically, we had a little restaurant at valley vo-tech, which set you up to work in a bigger restaurant,” says Simmons, who quickly increased her knowledge of prepping and cooking and pricing everything out. She says it was a great foundation, something she built on when she graduated from Piedmont Virginia Community College’s culinary arts program several years later. More importantly, though, her vocational training confirmed what she’d known since she was a child: She wanted to cook professionally. Soon after graduating from PVCC, Simmons landed a job making salads at Staunton’s Newtown Baking & Kitchen, where she worked alongside Chicano Boy Taco owner and former Zinc executive chef Justin Hershey. But it was her pastry work—she’d fallen in love with dessert-making while at VCTC—plus a recommendation from Hershey that led Simmons to

In the Tavola kitchen: Janey Gioiosa, Ryan High, Brandon Miller, Alicia Simmons, and Kendall Moore

A MENU IS A CANVAS FOR EXECUTIVE CHEF Alicia Simmons, who presents Through the Seasons, a thoughtfully crafted dining experience, every three to four months at Tavola. The seasonal one-day-only dinner is filled with the restaurant’s recent daily specials, prepared in collaboration with chef de cuisine Kendall Moore. Simmons typically handles the dessert course, while Moore flexes his skills on the mains, both supported by a talented line of cooks. At their most recent dinner in September, the first plate—an “amuse” or quick appetizer—consisted of a homey and warm English muffin with anchovy butter, a salted tomato and shiso taco, crisp in taste and soft in texture, and a fragrant and bold cannoli of squash and mascarpone. It was all paired with a sparkling red Patrick Bottex Bugey-Cerdon La Cueille wine, and my palate was ready for the sumptuous flavors to follow. The antipasti offered multiple options, including roasted oysters with tomato caper relish and crispy calamari with grilled peaches, blistered shishito, Meyer lemon, and caper aioli. The oyster was so buttery and smooth that I wanted to sip it right out of the shell, and the pairing of a Domaine Michel

Brégeon Muscadet was a nice soft companion with a pleasant silky taste. By contrast, the calamari, tender on the inside, was delicate and bursting with flavor from the caper aioli. Grilled peach was an inspired element, adding some playful fruity notes, while the shishito peppers were savory and welcome, commanding my attention. This colorful dish was paired with a funky, bright, and slightly sour Sono Montenidoli Tradizionale. For the entrata, I was treated to grilled halibut with heirloom caponata and basil and fennel salad, and a roasted duck breast with local cabbage and duck jus. The halibut was moist, tender, brusque, and delicious—flavorful but not in your face. Sweet in some places, the dish entertained my entire mouth, and paired nicely with a glass of Tenuta Terraviva MPH, a wine with mango and pineapple flavors and a clean finish. The roasted duck arrived with a strong, salty fragrance, a fatty cut with smooth texture and warmth, swimming in savory jus. The veggie pairings, dark and wispy, contrasted with the wilder duck, and came alive with a strong pour of Davide Carlone Boca. Finally, the dolci, a blackberry mousse cake with chocolate cookie crumble was paired with an espresso Manhattan. The mousse, bright, fluffy, crunchy, and oh-so chocolatey, was a perfect match for the iced latte-like cocktail. I left with a fond memory of soft, whipped mousse and a bold coffee flavor—a whiff of an Italian café.—Richard DiCicco Tavola staff take advantage of Virginia’s bountiful farms and shores to create decadent seasonal dinners. The next Through the Seasons event is on Monday, December 5.

Ever seen what your real estate agent takes from you?





gram presence doing comedic skits with characters like the insatiable Sugar Gollum and a cringey cohort of earnest commune members. She took on issues as heavy as abortion and as light as hiking sandals. She grew her Instagram following to nearly 40,000. “My philosophy about comedy is to be true to your own perspective,” Byrd says. “I have been very deeply involved in the wellness and food industry, and I know a lot about all those worlds. I feel it’s important to be a voice within the food world, because there is a lot of bullshit.” Her next step is to get back to Will Frolic for Food. While she finds so much of the food and wellness influencer space to be about “greenwashing” and selling under the guise of self-help—“there is so much stuff out there that you don’t need to be healthy or happy,” she says—she still believes in the power of the medium. Byrd, who also runs Frolic Coffee at the Ix Farmers Market with her husband, a wellness coach by training, has always focused on freeform health journeys. Folks have to follow their own path to happiness, she says, and they can do so many things to improve themselves without spending any money. “There is a lot of amazing work being done, but it’s buried,” Byrd says. “In the wellness and health and food world, you get the best results with self-led discovery. A lot can be done with a health coach, but they can’t just tell you what to do. Proper coaching is being a masterful asker of questions so people can come to their own conclusions. To reach your own unique, ideal health, some people need to run a lot, and some people need to walk a lot.”—Shea Gibbs




CHARLOTTESVILLE-BASED WELLNESS GURU Renee Byrd was a successful influencer before being an influencer was cool. Byrd launched her blog, Will Frolic for Food, in 2012. The goal was to “provide free tools for living well … recipes, advice, yoga videos, and entertainment to sensitive souls.” In a few short years, she was working part-time hours while making a full-time income through advertisements and sponsored posts. But a bout with illness and a dose of influencer fatigue began to fray Byrd’s enthusiasm. At the end of 2020, she stepped away from her successful blog, which had earned her notice from national outlets like the Food Network, Better Homes & Gardens, and Self, to focus on her personal life and well-being. “The thing that bothers me is the culture around influence,” says Byrd. “It can be very egotistical and fake. Thankfully, a lot of the people I’ve worked with in the past in the food realm have been great. I’ve always thought, ‘If you are going to be an influencer, be in the food space; they are kind people that are there to be educators.’” Now, married and living in Belmont with her beloved Australian sheepdog and a baby on the way, Byrd is plotting her way back into influencer culture. After stepping away from Will Frolic for Food, Byrd continued to create content through comedy. With a background in theater and music, she has counted herself an artist, photogBlogger and influencer rapher, writer, musician, Renee Byrd throws yoga teacher, and entrea bit of comedy and preneur over the years. entertainment into her To stay active, she devel“recipes” for health oped an off-beat Instaand wellness.

Bevvies of fun

Champion Brewing Company has some recent releases that will pique the interest of board game fanatics, mayo lovers, and Hoos alike. Members of the Champion Beer Club have access to a limited selection of Catan-themed beers, each one modeled after one of the game’s six biome tiles: wheat beer for the field biome, Schwartzbier for the mountain biome, Altbier for bricks and hills, and more. This year, Champion also introduced a beer to cheer for: the Cavalier Lager. It’s a light, easy-drinking beer that’s made to pair well with salty game-day snacks and relaxing with friends. And capping off the tie-in trifecta, Champion has a blend of Vienna malt with Magnum and Saaz hops carefully crafted to complement the taste of Duke’s Mayonnaise. That’s right, there’s even a picture of Duke’s on the can.

Here’s the scoop



Emily Harpster’s SugarBear Ice Cream has been partnering with restaurants all over the city to offer unique flavors, like Honey Sea Salt Latte and Buttermilk & Jam. And you don’t have to go very far to get them: SugarBear is served at an ever-expanding lineup of local restaurants, including MarieBette, Bowerbird Bakeshop, Feast!, Greenwood Grocery, and several more. “I came into this wanting to keep it simple and creative and collaborative,” says Harpster. “I would love for Charlottesville to have its own local brand so you can pick up a pint from a local market.” Expect SugarBear’s flavor mashups to change frequently—so, if you see one you like, scoop it up.—Will Ham


THERE’S NOTHING THAT FORGES STRONGER bonds and solidifies friendships quite like collaboration. Whether combining resources, such as different raw materials, or providing an area of individual expertise, it’s exciting to work as a team to produce a new or better result. Blenheim Vineyards and Fine Creek Brewing Company did just that when they teamed up for the release of the Collaboration Wine line. Charlottesville’s Blenheim Vineyards has a longstanding relationship with Fine Creek Brewing Company, headquartered in Powhatan. In the past, Fine Creek has used barrels from Blenheim, and incorporated different varieties of the vineyard’s grape pressings in some of its beers. Blenheim has hosted pop-up events where Fine Creek poured beer at the winery, and Fine Creek has likewise hosted Blenheim to pour wines at the brewery, where they also feature Blenheim on a list that supports the Virginia wine industry. That professional partnership led to personal friendships, says Tracey Love, who oversees sales, events, and marketing at Blenheim. “We have become good friends with Mark [Benusa, Fine Creek’s owner], the brewer Brian Mandeville, and the taproom staff,” says Love. “It felt like a natural progression to invite them to sit down with Kirsty [Harmon, winemaker at Blenheim], and work together on these two wine blends.” Collaboration blends are priced at $20 a bottle, and take the place of Blenheim’s On the Line

blends, a limited-release series intended to help provide healthy meals to frontline workers and others in need during the pandemic. With these new wines, as with their recent launch of the Oenoverse wine club, Blenheim is focused on promoting community and inclusiveness. Collaboration White is a blend of chardonnay, viognier, arneis, albariño, and petit manseng. It was aged 15 percent in oak barrels and 85 percent in stainless steel. On the nose, there are notes of sweet lemon-lime, white peaches, apricot, and beeswax. On the palate, the wine is medium weight and textured, with strong acidity and flavors consistent with the nose. The Collaboration Red is a blend of merlot, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, and petit verdot. It was aged 75 percent in oak barrels and 25 percent in stainless steel. The nose is deep and full of red and black fruit, raisins, and blueberries, with hints of vanilla, smoke, and flint. On the palate, the wine is medium weight in structure with flavors of black plum, fig, raisin, and a long finish with hints of smoke. A bit brooding on first taste, it is best when given time to open up. “A chance to tie the Virginia beer and wine scenes together in any capacity is a great thing, and getting to do it with your friends makes it that much better,” says Benusa, calling Blenheim’s staff, “some of our favorite folks in the industry.”—Paul H. Ting

Virginia wine got a beer boost when friendship led Blenheim Vineyards and Fine Creek Brewing to produce a new line of Collaboration Wines.

One of the most innovative projects to come out of the Charlottesville food scene recently is Multiverse Kitchens, a digital food hall that features seven local brands. Order online take-out and delivery from an array of choices, such as a mother-clucking chicken sandwich from Fowl Mouthed Chicken or Firebox’s grilled oyster mushroom wrap, complete with cucumber salad and yogurt dressing. Or maybe you’re in the mood for a blueberry shortstack from Big H’s Pancakes or a box of fresh-baked cookies from Long Strange Chip. In the Multiverse, anything is possible, (except foods like fries, which don’t travel well). Founder Harrison Keevil (of Keevil & Keevil Grocery) admits the spot’s name was inspired by Albert Einstein and parallel universe theory. “You can cook a chicken an infinite number of ways.” he says. “So you can create an infinite number of concepts from one kitchen.”

Five dishes that will make a vegetarian feel loved Eating out as a vegetarian can be disappointing, to say the least. While joints like GRN Burger and Botanical Fare have dedicated entire menus to tasty vegetarian and vegan eats, many restaurants only offer a token vegetarian dish. So for those who are tired of the seasonal vegetable plate, grain bowl, and mushroom risotto, we found five delicious dishes from area eateries that make dining out as a vegetarian fun.


Philly Cheeseshroom, Kitchenette This neighborhood sandwich shop is known for its meaty eats, particularly the Hot Wet Beef, but its vegetarian sandwiches are just as tasty. The Philly Cheeseshroom is a satisfying take on its meat counterpart, and features a blend of mushrooms sautéed with onions and roasted red peppers, provolone, shredded lettuce, and house mayo on a sub roll. Kimchi Fried Rice, DOMA Korean Kitchen Eating DOMA’s Kimchi Fried Rice is like having a delicious home-cooked meal, which is no surprise considering owners Imsook “April” Lee and her husband, Doyoung Moon incorporate recipes passed down from family members. The simple-but-flavorful dish is prepared with butter and spicy kimchi, topped with a fried egg, and served with doenjang soup. Take it to the next level by adding cheese and tofu. Egg Paffle #1, Iron Paffles & Coffee This decadent, flaky waffle sandwich is the perfect brunch meal. Made with egg, cheddar, and housemade sriracha mayonnaise, the paffle is easily converted to vegetarian by substituting tempeh bacon for regular bacon. Iron Paffles’ menu is entirely customizable, and offers alternative preparations for multiple allergies and dietary preferences.

CHARLOTTESVILLE LOVES TO EAT. WITH A restaurant scene that prides itself on punching above its weight class, there is no shortage of options when an out-of-towner asks me the obligatory “where should we eat?” question. That list of options has evolved over the years, taking stock of the ever-changing landscape. The following is a highlight of some new arrivals.

Siren This spot for Mediterranean-inspired fare with an emphasis on seafood is the brainchild of Laura Fonner, a local chef who gained national attention when she took home the title on the Food Network’s “Guy’s Grocery Games.” sirencville.com Popitos Pizza Popitos is the newest addition to the Rio Hill Shopping center. The Zayas family serves up wood-fired pizzas, with a menu offering appetizers, salads, and signature pies with gourmet toppings like garlic confit and sea salt flakes. popitospizza.com Kyoto Fifth Taste Kyoto, a fixture for Japanese cuisine in Charlottesville since 2005, has introduced a new concept: Fifth Taste. Under the direction of Chef Michelle Chang, the new menu allows diners to experience the healthy and delicious versatility of fermented foods. kyotofifthtaste.com



Brightside Surfs up at Brightside in the Bebedero’s former location above the Whisky Jar (Bebedero has moved a few doors down the mall). Brightside is a beach-inspired pub that offers patrons classic bar bites alongside an extensive tropical drink menu. cvillebrightside. dine.online Umma’s Jen Naylor, affectionately known as Mamabird, has been a staple at the farmers markets for years with her Sussex Farm stand. The lines of loyal foodies never seem to dwindle and her duck egg crème brûlée remains one of my favorite desserts of all time. Pair that with Kelsey Naylor (Jen’s daughter) and her partner Anna Gardner who had been delighting crowds of their own with their food truck Basan, and you get Umma’s. ummasfood.com Birdhouse As cute as its name implies, this cozy brick restaurant at 711 Henry Ave. is bringing the bird. Offering whole, half, and quarter rotisserie chicken, the simple menu keeps the emphasis on the chicken plus a number of seasonal side dishes and a rotating dessert menu. birdhouse-charlottesville.com Organic Krush A new location for the Organic Krush chain has a range of options for those looking to keep it healthy. With bowls, smoothies, and juices, there is something to meet numerous dietary choices and restrictions. organickrush.com Ralph Sampson’s American Taproom Local basketball legend Ralph Sampson has teamed up with Thompson Hospitality to open an upscale sports bar concept with an extensive beer list and a menu offering all the staples that pair perfectly with taking in the game on the big screens. americantaproom.com—Carrie Meslar

Chickadee When Bluegrass Grill vacated the Glass Building, many residents kept their eye on the space to see what would fill the shoes of the beloved cozy breakfast joint. Chickadee answered with breakfast offered all day, a full bar, and diverse lunch offerings. chickadeecville.com

Rigatoni Verdi con Zucca, Tavola It’s all about the sauce with Tavola’s rigatoni verdi con zucca. A sage-marsala cream ties together this seasonal dish, which features heirloom squash, mushrooms, pecorino, and amaretti crumble, served atop housemade pasta. The flavor is seriously unforgettable.—Maeve Hayden


Green Giant, Now & Zen Choosing what to order from Now & Zen’s extensive veg menu can feel like an impossible task. Thankfully, our server came in with a clutch recommendation—the Green Giant. The extra-large sushi roll is stuffed with sweet potato tempura, cream cheese, avocado, and cucumber, and topped with spicy mayo, eel sauce, tempura flakes, and scallions.

Cat Socializers

SPCA Rummage Store

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

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

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

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

etflix has elaborately revived Erich Maria Remarque’s classic World War I novel All Quiet on the Western Front, directed by Edward Berger. Remarque’s novel’s descriptions of trench warfare and mechanized bloodshed have lost none of their punch (likewise, Lewis Milestone’s 1930 film version), but in Berger’s take, many elements don’t fully coalesce into the potent anti-war statement the film is intended to be. German teenager Paul Baumer (Felix Kammerer) and his friends enlist in the Army in a fit of patriotic fervor. Their illusions about war as an exciting adventure vanish as they are thrust into a hellscape of agonizing death. Seasoned soldier “Kat” Katczinsky (Albrecht Shuch) befriends Paul and helps him learn to survive on the front. Meanwhile, in a subplot invented for the film, German diplomats led by Matthias Erzberger (Daniel Brühl) realize their cause is lost, and work toward an armistice with the French. Most of the movie portrays graphic battlefield violence, offset by occasional inter-

ludes of the soldiers at rest. The audience endures nightmarish combat, and some of the battle scenes—especially one involving tanks—are very effective. The production design, costumes, and makeup effects are all first-rate. The opening sequence is probably the most inventive: uniforms being stripped off freshly dead soldiers, cleaned, patched, and recycled, ready to be handed off to the next batch of doomed youngsters. All Quiet is pitched in the gory mode of Saving Private Ryan and Fury, but it’s more deeply indebted to Stanley Kubrick’s Paths of Glory, the gut-wrenching Russian war film Come and See, and Sam Fuller’s masterworks (one of Fuller’s finest lines from The Steel Helmet is paraphrased here). Unfortunately, All Quiet plays like a war movie designed to wow people who haven’t seen many war movies, and it suffers most in its character development, pacing, and scoring. Unlike in Remarque’s novel or Milestone’s film, the audience doesn’t really get to know Paul’s friends well enough for their deaths to register. And the film’s soundtrack prominently features an intrusive and anachronistic three-note leitmotif that is jarringly out of place.

The actors are all fine, and deserve more screen time to offset the violence. Key points are also belabored, like the German High Command’s elegant lifestyle juxtaposed with the squalid lives of its soldiers. And an ancient war movie cliché still holds true here: If a soldier shows off pictures of his loved ones, or even discusses them, he’s a goner. It’s clear just how many antiwar movies are superior to All Quiet in every sense, in-

All Quiet on the Western Front R, 183 minutes cluding the 1930 version, which, despite being over 90 years old, remains better paced and edited. With the quality of cast, crew, and materials at hand, this adaptation could have been shaped into a more impressive film. All the elements are there—the filmmakers just got carried away with bombarding the audience with horror, and lost sight of the movie’s structure and characters. Yes, war is still hell, but there are limits to which viewers can be bludgeoned with that point.

Most of the movie portrays graphic battlefield violence, offset by occasional interludes of the soldiers at rest.

HARK VINEYARDS 2019 Merlot Small vat fermented and barrel aged 16 months, this wine showcases notes of black cherry, cola, and savory herbs. This wine follows nice in the footsteps of its predecessor, our 2017 Merlot, which won Gold in the Governor’s Cup. The 2019 is still a bit youthful, and while it tastes great right now, it’s only going to get better over the next several years. The problem? By then it will be long gone!

PIPPIN HILL FARM & VINEYARDS 2019 Petit Verdot Our single varietal 2019 Petit Verdot is a beautiful example of why we love this grape so much. We age this wine in a blend of French and American oak barrels to enhance its complexity, bringing out its rich aromas of boysenberry, black olive and tobacco leaf and highlighting fruit flavors on the palate of blackberry and pomegranate seed. Its finish is dry, with medium tannins and with notes of pepper. This lovely wine pairs well with rich meat dishes, spicy foods and a variety of hard and semi-soft cheeses.

2021 Montifalco Vineyard Estate Saperavi, Monticello AVA This is the first single varietal vintage of our 100% Estate Saperavi red wine. Saperavi means “dye” in Georgian. Until now we have used our Saperavi in 2020 and 2021 for our popular Estate Rose wine (2021 is almost sold out!). Saperavi is a teinturier-type (French word meaning to stain or dye). It has dark purple skin with red flesh inside. It’s a grape variety native to Eastern Europe. While most of it is grown in Georgia, it is also farmed in Russia, Moldova, Armenia, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan and Australia. If left with longer skin contact time, the wine can actually fall into the black wine category, rather than red wine. A wine that is exceptional with savory dishes and higher fat content as Saperavi’s acidity sings with dishes like smoked brisket and grilled NY strip. Email us for recipes! Our 2021 Montifalco Estate Saperavi will be released this December 2022 and we are excited to farm and represent this ancient grape in Virginia’s wine industry.

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You now have extra power to exorcise ghosts and demons that are still lingering from the old days and old ways. You are able to transform the way your history affects you. You have a sixth sense about how to graduate from lessons you have been studying for a long time. In honor of this joyfully tumultuous opportunity, draw inspiration from poet Charles Wright: “Knot by knot I untie myself from the past / And let it rise away from me like a balloon. / What a small thing it becomes. / What a bright tweak at the vanishing point, blue on blue.”


(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In accordance with current astrological rhythms, I am handing over your horoscope to essayist Anne Fadiman. She writes, “I have always felt that the action most worth watching is not at the center of things, but where edges meet. I like shorelines, weather fronts, international borders. There are interesting frictions and incongruities in these places, and often, if you stand at the point of tangency, you can see both sides better than if you were in the middle of either one.”


(Feb. 19-March 20): Over the course of my life, I have been fortunate to work with 13 psychotherapists. They have helped keep my mental health flourishing. One of them regularly reminded me that if I hoped to get what I wanted, I had to know precisely what I wanted. Once a year, she would give me a giant piece of thick paper and felt-tip markers. “Draw your personal vision of paradise,” she instructed me. “Outline the contours of the welcoming paradise that would make your life eminently delightful and worthwhile.” She would also ask me to finish the sentence that begins with these words: “I am mobilizing all the energy and ingenuity and connections I have at my disposal so as to accomplish the following goal.” In my astrological opinion, Pisces, now is a perfect time to do these two exercises yourself.

(March 21-April 19): One of your callings as an Aries is to take risks. You’re inclined to take more leaps of faith than other people, and you’re also more likely to navigate them to your advantage—or at least not get burned. A key reason for your success is your keen intuition about which gambles are relatively


Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Sagittarian rapper and entrepreneur Jay-Z has stellar advice for his fellow Sagittarians to contemplate regularly: “Ain’t nothin’ wrong with the aim; just gotta change the target.” In offering Jay-Z’s advice, I don’t mean to suggest that you always need to change the target you’re aiming at. On many occasions, it’s exactly right. But the act of checking in to evaluate whether it is or isn’t the right target will usually be valuable. And on occasion, you may realize that you should indeed aim at a different target. smart and which are ill-advised. But even when your chancy ventures bring you exciting new experiences, they may still run you afoul of conventional wisdom, peer pressure, and the way things have always been done. Everything I have described here will be in maximum play for you in the coming weeks.


(April 20-May 20): Your keynote comes from teacher Caroline Myss. She writes, “Becoming adept at the process of self-inquiry and symbolic insight is a vital spiritual task that leads to the growth of faith in oneself.” Encouraging you to grow your faith in yourself will be one of my prime intentions in the next 12 months. Let’s get started! How can you become more adept at self-inquiry and symbolic insight? One idea is to ask yourself a probing new question every Sunday morning, like “What teachings and healings do I most want to attract into my life during the next seven days?” Spend the subsequent week gathering experiences and revelations that will address that query. Another idea is to remember and study your dreams, since doing so is the number one way to develop symbolic insight.


(May 21-June 20): The TV science fiction show “Legends of Tomorrow” features a ragtag team of imperfect but effective superheroes. They travel through time trying to fix aberrations in the timelines caused by various villains. As they experiment and improvise, sometimes resorting to wildly daring gambits, their successes outnumber their stumbles and bumbles. And on occasion, even their apparent mistakes lead to good fortune that unfolds in unexpected ways. One member of the team, Nate, observes, “Sometimes we screw up—for the better.” I foresee you Geminis as having a similar modus operandi in the coming weeks.


(June 21-July 22): I like how Cancerian poet Stephen Dunn begins his poem, “Before We Leave.” He writes, “Just so it’s clear—no whining on the journey.” I am offering this greeting to you and me, my fellow Cancerians, as we launch the next chapter of our story. In the early stages, our efforts may feel like drudgery, and our progress could seem slow. But as long as we don’t complain excessively and don’t blame others for our own limitations, our labors will become easier and quite productive.


(July 23-Aug. 22): Leo poet Kim Addonizio writes a lot about love and sex. In her book Wild Nights, she says, “I’m thinking of dating trees next. We could just stand around all night together. I’d murmur, they’d rustle, the wind would, like, do its wind thing.” Now might be a favorable time for you, too, to experiment with evergreen romance and arborsexuality and trysts with your favorite plants. When was the last time you hugged an oak or kissed an elm? Just kidding! The coming weeks will indeed be an excellent time to try creative innovations in your approach to intimacy and adoration. But I’d rather see your experiments in togetherness unfold with humans.


(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In her book Daughters of the Stone, Virgo novelist Dahlma Llanos-Figueroa tells the tale of five generations of Afro-Cuban women, her ancestors. “These are the stories of a time lost to flesh and bone,” she writes, “a time that lives only in dreams and memories. Like a primeval wave, these stories have carried me, and deposited me on the morning of today. They are the stories

of how I came to be who I am, where I am.” I’d love to see you explore your own history with as much passion and focus, Virgo. In my astrological opinion, it’s a favorable time for you to commune with the influences that have made you who you are.


(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): In accordance with astrological omens, here’s my advice for you in the coming weeks: 1. Know what it takes to please everyone, even if you don’t always choose to please everyone. 2. Know how to be what everyone wants you to be and when they need you to be it, even if you only fulfill that wish when it has selfish value for you. 3. Do not give others all you have and thereby neglect to keep enough to give yourself. 4. When others are being closedminded, help them develop more expansive finesse by sharing your own reasonable views. 5. Start thinking about how, in 2023, you will grow your roots as big and strong as your branches.


(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Even if some people are nervous or intimidated around you, they may be drawn to you nonetheless. When that happens, you probably enjoy the power you feel. But I wonder what would happen if you made a conscious effort to cut back just a bit on the daunting vibes you emanate. I’m not saying they’re bad. I understand they serve as a protective measure, and I appreciate the fact that they may help you get the cooperation you want. As an experiment, though, I invite you to be more reassuring and welcoming to those who might be inclined to fear you. See if it alters their behavior in ways you enjoy and benefit from.

hat do you like in a community? What do you want in a place to lay your head? Maybe you love the sporting life. Or perhaps you want a spot where people know each other and enjoy hanging out together. Or a place with walking trails or a friendly nearby restaurant where you can meet for business or for relaxing evenings with family or friends. Perhaps a golf-front home is what you want, or a wooded lot on which to build your dream home, a place for a large family, or just a modest villa. Whatever it is Spring Creek has what you’re looking for. With all of its many amenities you’ll almost certainly find something that is just right for you. Conveniently located just 15 miles east of Charlottesville down Route 64 at Zion Crossroads, Spring Creek is a gated, 950-acre, 1,200-home resort-style village. More affordable than many such attractive developments, and with lower than average property taxes, Spring Creek’s amenities include a nationally recognized golf course, a fitness center, swimming pool, basketball, tennis, and pickle ball courts, as well as a clubhouse. You’ll also find a park, playground, and miles of trails.

And you can also enjoy the restaurant, pub, and event space that are also perfect for private celebrations and corporate functions.

Spring Creek Living Sherry Palmer of Lloyd’s Real Estate, LLC has been showing homes in Louisa County since 1994, so she knows the region well. It says a lot then, that Palmer and her husband recently moved to Spring Creek. “We like the area and the amenities, and the neighborhood feel and the security,” she says. “It’s a private community, so I like the safety of it; there is a gate guard at all times.” Another thing Palmer loves is the idyllic feel of the place, with its wellmanicured lawns, sidewalks that connect to miles of walking trails, and lots of life on the street. “It’s very well set up,” she says. “We take our little dogs and ride around on our golf carts and see the area. It’s nice seeing the kids out playing. For Halloween we rode around just to see the decorations.” “It doesn’t matter where you go, you’re going to see kids outside playing, and that was important to me, to know that in this day and time you can still send your kids outside to play and not worry about it. You know they’re going to be safe; it’s a community where your neighbors watch out for the children.”

While Spring Creek has many activities for children, the grown-ups have fun too. “When they have yard sales, it’s huge—like 200 sites participating. They had a football pool and we joined that. They do a golf cart Christmas parade. They have craft shows, and bingo. It’s just these little things that you don’t get in other subdivisions. Spring Creek has a nice community feel.” Are we intrigued yet? Clearly Spring Creek is special. Let’s take a closer look. We’ll start at Tavern on the Green, a 144-seat, full-service restaurant and bar with a view of the lake and the Spring Creek Golf Club’s 18th green. Open to the public seven days a week, it’s an appealing spot for a happy hour drink with friends, a meal with family, or a pint after a round of golf. The chef happily provides vegan, gluten-free or kosher meals, and sources as many ingredients as possible from local farms. Tavern on the Green also hosts events each week—Bourbon Nights, for example, and Passport Dinners to such interesting places as Brazil, Morocco, and the Caribbean. A December 3 celebration will mark the anniversary of the 1933 repeal of “The Stupidest Constitutional Amendment,” Number 18—Prohibition. The expansive menu for Brunch With Santa, December 11 at the golf course clubhouse, ranges from a pancake bar and other breakfast items to savory delights like chicken, ham, and brisket.



Spring Creek Golfing And what about that golf course? When it comes to a game of golf, the people at Spring Creek say, “there are basically two kinds of courses; those you play for the convenience, and the courses you truly seek out.” Spring Creek Golf Club was built for “the seekers,” the people for whom “average just doesn’t work,” the ones looking for a golfing experience that is “the best life has to offer.”

Spring Creek Golf Club was built for “the seekers,” the people for whom “average just doesn’t work,” the ones looking for a golfing experience that is “the best life has to offer.”

They aren’t just talking. Designed to be attractive to high-handicap golfers, but challenging even for tournament professionals, the 18-hole Spring Creek course has received awards from Golf Digest and other publications as one of the best public courses in the nation. It was also named the 2021 Golfers’ Choice by GolfPass, as the top public course in Virginia. Meticulously groomed, it traverses rolling hills and woods with views of rock walls and bridges, offering strategic challenges in an especially lovely setting. A driving range, short game area, and golf shop supplement the course. And a staff full of PGA Professionals is available by appointment for individual and group instruction. Tee-times can be booked online. Current course conditions are updated daily. Up-and-coming—young—golfers can choose from three programs. The Fire 12 Junior Program for ages 6-13 intro-

duces key golf concepts, and develops skills through clinics and competition. This eight-week program is offered both spring and fall. Clinics provide formal instruction as well as game-based learning. Spring Creek also offers a “Little Linksters” program for ages four and five. Little Linksters meet weekly for eight weeks, accompanied by a parent or chaperone. Spring Creek’s 9,500 square foot Sports Club & Fitness Center is the place to work out with cardio and aerobic equipment, as well as free weights. The 25 meter pool and toddler wading pool are close by a children’s playground. The Center’s meeting space and banquet rooms can accommodate as many as 150 people, and include a catering kitchen.

Spring Creek Homes What a place to live—and spots are still to be had. But let’s back up a moment. Zion Crossroads hasn’t always had

this much going on. Not much was happening at all until the early 1970s, in fact. Things really took off in the early 2000s, when plans were put in place for both Spring Creek and a business corridor. Take Exit 136 off of Route 64 today, where it crosses Highway 15 (James Madison Highway), go north on 15, and you’ll find the entrance to Spring Creek just a mile up the road. More pre-construction single family lots are now available for buyers, including Neighborhood lots priced from the $80 thousands, Conservation lots priced from the $90 thousands, and spectacular Golf Front lots overlooking Fairway #1 from $175 thousand and up. Buyer incentives include reduced HOA fees until building begins, no time limits on building, the opportunity to choose your own builder, and developer financing. Stanley Martin Homes currently has four 1,877-square foot villa homes available now, and four more to come. Each

villa home is attached to one other home and features main level living. While all are set up a little differently, each shares the same floor plan, and has three bedrooms and two and half bathrooms.

The kitchen features a large pantry. The laundry room is on the main level as well. Near the front door is a half bath and a clothes closet.

Options include an upgraded fireplace and a gourmet kitchen set-up. One such home is currently on the market for $399,990, while another on the same street is priced at $414,990. “The villas are so beautifully built,” Palmer says. “and very nice.” She recently aided a retired couple looking for a villa, who decided to have one built in Spring Creek. “They moved here from further South,” she says. “We spoke to them a couple of weeks ago, and they’re very happy in there.” Another, ready-to-be-built option, priced from the low $500Ks and comprising 2,042 to 3,339 square feet, is called the Willow. These one-level, Arts and Crafts style homes come with a sunny, open floorplan, luxurious main floor owner suite, and a kitchen with stainless appliances, granite counters and soft close cabinetry. The walk in pantry has solid wood shelving. The bedrooms are carpeted. Two-car garages are attached. Two-story homes in what’s been named Parksley style have four bedrooms and three and a half baths.

The high school and Thomas Jefferson Elementary were rebuilt after being damaged by an earthquake in 2011. The new high school has received accolades for its student achievement, which puts it in the top 25 percent of high schools in the country.

What’s Not to Like? Homes for families, singles, first-time buyers, and downsizing seniors. Inviting spots for great golfing, hiking, swimming and you name it. There is something for everyone in this lovely and active community. “When you move into Spring Creek,” Sherry Palmer says, “you know you’re going to get top of the line.”
