How do I know I’m from Charlottesville? I wore an absurd sequined sash to march with the band during Friday night Charlottesville High School football games. I know exactly how the UVA men’s basketball team performed in each of the last 10 seasons. I can tell you all about the Dillon Rule. I still listen to a Sons of Bill song every once in a while. My last meal would be from Ace Biscuit. Those are my answers. Ask anyone else who considers themselves a native of the city’s 11 square miles, and they’ll have a totally different set of memories that define their relationship with this place. Our “You know you’re from Charlottesville if…” feature (p. 15) is a classic alt-weekly set up, an opportunity to pull together some relatable content that gently mocks the city’s many foibles. But at the same time, “You know you’re from Charlottesville if…” is a deceptively difficult sentence to complete, because Charlottesville is a multifaceted place. One of the most important conclusions from the conversation in and around the city in the last few years is the fact that we don’t all live in the same Charlottesville. Class, race, gender, language, sexual orientation, immigration status—all these factors and more change the way each of us interacts with the city. Generalizing about Charlottesville almost always leaves somebody out. Even so, everyone who says they’re from Charlottesville has one thing in common: They’re from Charlottesville. What does that mean to you?—Ben Hitchcock

NEWS IN BRIEF

Attention, attorneys With Chip Boyles serving as city manager for the time being, Charlottesville is now beginning to look for people to fill other high-level vacancies in the municipal bureaucracy. This week, City Council will hold a closed meeting to interview potential candidates to be the next city attorney, the elected government’s legal advisor. Former city attorney John Blair left earlier this year to become Staunton’s city attorney.

Give me the bat news first Three of Virginia’s native bat species are 90 percent extinct, reports the Virginia Mercury. A deadly fungus called white-nose syndrome, which arrived in the country about a decade ago, has swept through Appalachian bat species, decimating the population of northern long-eared, little brown, and tricolored bats. Biologists have been working to help the nocturnal critters, but the disease continues to spread.

Former UVA basketball standout Anthony Gill didn’t make the NBA right off the bat. The forward earned 2015 and 2016 Third-Team all-ACC honors in his junior and senior seasons under Tony Bennett, but went undrafted after graduating. Gill headed abroad, and spent a season playing for Yesilgiresun Belediye in Turkey, and three years with Khimki in Russia. Recently, however, Gill has started to find his footing in the big leagues. The 28-year-old

Statewide, those numbers are 43 and 29, respectively. That doesn’t mean we can rest on our laurels: The Blue Ridge Health District, which includes Charlottesville and Albemarle, Greene, Louisa, Nelson, and Fluvanna counties, reported 19 new cases yesterday. Since early March, the health district has consistently registered around 30 new cases per day.

BLUE RIDGE HEALTH DISTRICT

The Charlottesville-Albemarle area is setting the pace for vaccine rollout in Virginia. As of Tuesday morning, Albemarle County had the highest proportion of the population to have received at least one vaccine dose of any locality in the state. 56 percent of the county has gotten one shot, and 37 percent is fully vaccinated. In the city, 52 percent have one shot, and 32 percent are fully vaxed.

signed a two-year contract with the Washington Wizards, and after starter Deni Avdija went down with an injury, Gill found himself with an opportunity. He’s averaged 16 minutes, 9 points, and 4.7 rebounds across the team’s last three games. “The guy works harder than anybody on our team,” said Wizards coach Scott Brooks this week. “He comes in every day. He comes in early. He’s always cheering his teammates on.”

Last week, UVA’s newly constituted Naming and Memorials Committee solicited suggestions from the community on the future of the Frank Hume Memorial Fountain. The fountain, better known as the Whispering Wall, has long been considered a piece of quirky school color, thanks to the way sound carries from one side of the curved bench to the other. But Hume, the monument’s namesake, was a Confederate soldier (and, later, a Virginia state legislator). At a recent listening session, every caller recommended scrapping the wall in its entirety, reports the Cavalier Daily. Last year, two students started a petition, which now has more than 2,100 signatures, to remove the monument. In the last week, the statue has been vandalized twice, and as of Monday, it’s been fenced off.

NOTES

t’s been over a year since the coronavirus forced local schools to shut their doors and teach thousands of students online. Thanks to a significant drop in COVID cases and the arrival of the vaccine, many students and teachers have returned to the classroom, with health and safety precautions in place. Some students, however, continue to learn from home—and may have the option to do so permanently. In addition to offering in-person instruction five days a week, Albemarle County Public Schools plans to launch an entirely virtual school this fall, equipped with its own principal, teachers, and students. Though virtual learning has been difficult for many students and families, county teachers say some children will benefit from a permanent virtual option. Unlike current virtual instruction, the standalone school will offer a full schedule of synchronous classes taught by live instructors. And students will be required to have their webcams on at all times. “Students who are learning online will still be able to be a part of the base school community,” explains county schools’ spokesman Phil Giaramita. “They can participate in athletics and clubs. They can run for student government. They still have all of the capabilities of the social part of school.” Because the online school will have its own set of teachers, students won’t have to deal with the challenges that come with hybrid learning. In order to comply with social distancing measures, those in fourth grade and up are currently alternating between in-person and virtual instruction, combined with independent assignments. Some teachers have been required to teach students in the classroom and on Zoom at the same time, a set up Albemarle High School geography teacher Chris Bunin describes as “really challenging.” According to the ACPS’s latest survey, eight to 10 percent of county families—1,000 to 1,400 students—are interested in enrolling in the online school. More than 80 percent of the division’s families responded to the survey. Since March 15, pre-kindergarteners through third-graders have been able to receive in-person instruction four days a week, while fourth grade and up can come into the classroom two days a week. But 42 percent of the school division— around 5,000 students—are sticking with online learning for various reasons. While some do not yet feel safe returning to the

classroom, others have learned and performed better in a virtual setting. Virtual learning has been especially helpful for English language learners, explains ESOL instructor Gini Knight, who currently teaches virtual classes at Monticello High School. “A lot of my students actually do better virtually, because the nature of language learning is you need to see someone’s mouth, and you can’t do that very easily when someone has a mask on,” says Knight, pointing to the mask mandate the school division must follow. Zoom breakout rooms have also made it easier for students to collaborate on projects, and for teachers to work on-on-one with those who are struggling. “They all can see the exact same thing at the same time. They can share their screens. It’s almost as though we’re closer together. And it’s more of a shared experience,” Knight says. On the elementary level, third grade teacher Kate Gerry has seen her “wiggly kids” benefit a lot from virtual learning. “They’re just pacing their room while I’m talking. They’ll come over and unmute and tell me what they’re thinking and keep pacing. And they’re totally there and attending and it’s not an issue, since no one is sitting right next to them getting bumped into,” says Gerry, who currently teaches virtual classes at Broadus Wood Elementary. “They can also read out loud and there’s no one next to them who can’t concentrate,” she adds. Teachers have found online learning to be helpful for students with social anxiety, who may prefer to work in their own private space. The all-virtual school will also be beneficial for those who are homebound due to a prolonged illness or injury. When the pandemic shuttered schools last spring, nearly 1,000 households in the school division did not have access to highspeed internet. To bridge this digital divide, ACPS purchased hotspots for families in need, and partnered with Comcast to provide a subsidized low-cost internet plan. “With the technology capabilities we’ve given to families, [the online school] wouldn’t be exclusionary. Almost anyone who wants to participate would be able to,” says Giaramita. In the coming weeks, principals will reach out to families about their plans for the fall, but parents will have the option to change their minds once the school year begins. If there is enough demand, the school division hopes to make the online school a permanent option for all students. The division’s plans for next school year will be discussed at the next school board meeting on May 6.

strongly benefit from the winner-take-all system. However, both Democrats and Republicans have supported ranked choice, and adopted it for a variety of elections. “In some cases, cities or states need to upgrade their election equipment before running ranked-choice elections. All modern voting equipment is ranked-choice capable, but cities or states who are using equipment that is more than 15 years old may need to upgrade,” says Otis. “There are plenty of other reasons that cities and states update their voting equipment, such as better election security, so time is on our side as election administrators are already in the process of phasing out older equipment,” she adds. Though most Republicans in the General Assembly opposed Hudson’s bill, the Virginia GOP will use ranked-choice voting this year to nominate their candidates for governor, lieutenant governor, and attorney general. On the municipal level, Arlington County is already exploring adopting the new voting system. The locality’s elected officials and registrars office will have to collaborate to make the shift. “We should expect to see [Arlington] be one of the first movers,” Hudson says. “It would be great to see Charlottesville consider it as well.”

@cville_weekly

In cities that have implemented this alternative voting system, candidates have significantly changed how they’ve campaigned. Instead of slinging mud at the opposition, they focus on the important issues in their communities, making races more positive, clean, and productive. “It forces candidates to reach out to voters from a lot of different corners of the community and talk about what really matters to people,” says Hudson. “If all you’re doing is dunking on your opponent, it’s going to be hard to win those second-, third-, and fourth-choice votes.” In addition to increasing voter turnout and engagement, ranked-choice voting has led to a major uptick in women and people of color running for office—and winning. Over the past decade, women have won nearly half of municipal ranked-choice elections, according to electoral reform nonprofit Fair Vote. Localities with ranked-choice voting also can skip party primaries or runoff elections, saving them a lot of time and money. While parties can still endorse their preferred candidate, they no longer keep the underdogs off the ballot. According to Fair Vote research analyst Deb Otis, some groups have argued against ranked-choice voting, mainly because they

April 28 – May 4, 2021 c-ville.com

f you’ve voted in more than a few elections, there’s a chance you’ve cast a ballot for a candidate you didn’t particularly like. Maybe you would have voted for someone else, but you knew that candidate didn’t have enough party support to win the race, and you didn’t want to “throw away” your vote. Under our country’s winner-take-all election system, this predicament is all too common. But in the past two decades, more than 20 cities and several states have turned to a different system that gives voters a wider range of options in elections: ranked-choice voting. 57th District Delegate Sally Hudson is working to bring this system to localities across Virginia. “Right now we have a problem,” says Hudson. “We have lots of people running for office...but our ballots just aren’t built to let voters choose who they really want when more than two people run.” Beginning this July, all cities and counties in Virginia will be allowed to use rankedchoice voting for their elections, thanks to Hudson’s bill, which was passed last year by the General Assembly. After the bill’s passage, Hudson set up a nonprofit, Ranked Choice Virginia. The aim of the organization is to do educational and advocacy work across the state, encouraging local legislators to take advantage of the new law. Under a ranked-choice voting system, voters can rank candidates in order of preference, without their other rankings hurting the chances of their first choice. They can also vote for as many candidates as they want. If their favorite candidate doesn’t win a majority of the first-choice votes, their vote then counts toward their second choice. “This way you ensure that whoever wins has genuine broad-based support from the community,” says Hudson. “You can’t just win by rallying a small, vocal slice.” Hudson points to Virginia’s crowded gubernatorial race as an example of the merits of ranked-choice voting. Five candidates are competing for the Democratic nomination, with former governor and fundraising powerhouse Terry McAuliffe currently leading in the polls. “When you have lots of people on the ballot...it’s really hard to tell who the consensus nominee is,” says Hudson. “Voters often have to choose between voting for who they really like and the person they think can win.” With ranked-choice voting, “even if it turns out your candidate doesn’t win, you can still weigh in on the consensus with your second choice,” she adds.

It’s true what they say: Absence does make the heart grow fonder. After taking last year off (hosting a competition just wouldn't have felt right when so many were struggling to keep their doors open), we're extra ready to get back to celebrating what makes Charlottesville great. This year's Best of C-VILLE boasts 191 categories—almost 100 more than in years past!—which means nearly 100 new opportunities to recognize the best people, places, and things in our city. We're excited to be back, and to share with you what we love about our home—now more than ever.

@cville_weekly

The truck-eating bridge on the Corner has dispatched 15 trucks since the beginning of 2019, according to CBS19 meteorologist and dedicated truck-tracker Travis Koshko. You’d think the drivers would learn, but they never do: Like clockwork, delivery after delivery gets disrupted when the unassuming bridge scrapes the top three inches off of yet another vehicle. You gotta be trucking kidding me!

You can’t afford to live here Charlottesville doesn’t have enough housing stock for everyone who wants to live here, and the price of houses is rising as a result. 2020’s fourth quarter saw the area’s median home sales price increase 13 percent from the same period during the previous year, according to the Charlottesville Area Association of Realtors. The city has recently begun to take steps to remedy the situation, like refurbishing and expanding multiple public housing complexes, but there’s still lots of work to be done.

Sure, you can’t see the stage, and yes, the acoustics are bad because the shell is facing the other way. But there’s something special about free live music. When concerts come back—sooner rather than later, we hope!—we’ll be excited to lean on the railing, look down onto the mall, and hear a few tinny chords from the best seats outside the house.

It’s bad enough that the students choke the roads nine months of the year, but parents and siblings and grandparents too? Forget about it. Memorial Day weekend is all well and good, but around here, the best time to get out of Dodge is the weekend before.

You’re so over Thomas Jefferson

@cville_weekly

Sure, he penned some good turns of phrase, but he was a plantation owner who had six children with a teenager he enslaved. He was a smug aristocrat whose hypocrisy knew no bounds. Some leaders around here talk a big game about equity, and then make people walk past gleaming statues of this guy every day. Really people? Really?

TRISTAN WILLIAMS

He’s a bona fide local legend who reached the highest highs and never forgot where he came from. His band is full of instrumental virtuosos, and he’s done immense amounts of charity work during the latter part of his career. And let’s be honest, who can resist “Crash Into Me?” Come on. You’d have to have a heart of stone.

You hate Dave Matthews TRISTAN WILLIAMS

You love Dave Matthews

He’s an overexposed dad-rocker who hasn’t been relevant in two decades. His voice sounds like a door hinge in bad need of some WD-40, and wearing pajama pants on stage wasn’t cute, either. And no, we haven’t forgotten the time his tour bus dumped 800 pounds of poop onto a sightseeing boat in the Chicago River.

We feel you, Councilor Magill.

Charlottesville’s City Council has plenty on its plate, and its meetings often run into the wee hours of the morning. But this is a city that cares about its future and cares about its government, and twice a month legislators and activists and community members pour themselves a cup of joe at 6:30pm and settle in for three to six hours of municipal presentations and debates. Tax rates! Zoning code! Special use permits! It’s bracing stuff.

You’ve got an answer to the riddle “Why did the salamander cross the road?” Each February, around 1,000 salamanders set off on their winter migration…from one side of Polo Grounds Road to the other. Since crossing the street is a dangerous undertaking for the little lizards, it’s become a local tradition for volunteers to gather on wet winter eves to shepherd the critters to the other side safely. Now that’s a good way to look out for your neighbors!

You consume local media For a town of its size, Charlottesville has an impressive network of journalists working in a variety of mediums—print, TV, radio, and, yes, Twitter—to keep everyone informed about what’s going on around here. In recent years, national and international media have regularly shone a spotlight on the city, too, but the local news, well, they’re the people sticking with it every day. (Okay, we might be a little biased on this one. But the point stands.)

facebook.com/cville.weekly

Any Charlottesville resident who’s been paying attention knows that the city means many things to many people. This is our town’s defining feature: We all live here, and we’re all rooting for the place to succeed, but we have hugely different life experiences, hopes, and priorities. We’ve put together this list to poke fun at a few of the city’s idiosyncrasies. (And believe me, we could have kept going.) But it’s not up to the alt-weekly to determine what makes a local, and we hope everyone who lives here feels like they can take ownership of the place. If you say you’re from Charlottesville, then you’re a local in our book.

With the announcement of its 2021 season, Festy takes a big leap forward by staying seated. Instead of the multi-day jam-out camp-out that’s fueled past Festys, this year’s event sticks with its COVID-inspired model of single shows (in Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina) and VIP-style pod seating. Well suited to the new vibe is North Carolina’s Mipso, with its acoustic-driven dark hollar pop and graceful harmonies derived from traditional folk. Livestream option, $10. Pods, $120-300, 7pm.

Ben Benson records his dialogue for The Lovers, Reversed.

With a pivot to podcasts, UVA Drama’s New Works Festival is all ears this year. The fifth annual student-run fest offers five short audio pieces (including one musical), which will be streamed on WTJU. Faculty mentors Dave Dalton and Doug Grissom realized audio dramas were a creative solution to replace the currently paused live theater experience, but the logistics involved lots of coordination. “Strategy and The Lovers, Reversed, for example, both take place with a limited cast in one location, so a lot of the conflict is resolved in dialogue,” says Dalton. “FUNeral and Half-hour Ride North, by contrast, initially had a lot of visual elements built into the scripts.” Free, times vary. new-works-festival.pinecast.co.

Keith Lee now calls central Virginia home, but his teaching and choreography work began at NewYork’s storied High School of Performing Arts, and was followed by decades of dance artistry everywhere from the American Ballet Theatre to Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. As artist laureate, resident choreographer, and director of diversity and inclusion at the Charlottesville Ballet, he offers local access to the world premiere of his newest piece, And the VIII Journeyed. The virtual program includes a screening of a mini documentary that celebrates Lee and his career, as well as a panel discussion with others in the film. Free, 2pm. charlottesvilleballet.org.

Amiri Baraka’s 1964 play The Slave takes place during a race war and ends with a deadly house collapse. As final as that sounds, local playwright and vocalist Ti Ames (right) continues the story: See About the Girls is set 14 years later, and imagines that Walker Vessel’s biracial daughters survived the house collapse. Now young adults living in the aftermath of the war, they grapple with their father’s past, as the world around them once again begins to crack at its foundation. $20, 7:30pm (streaming). jeffschoolheritagecenter.org.

Recycling for cycling Community Bikes brings nonprofit mettle to refurbished pedals By Shea Gibbs

C

ommunity Bikes has been providing bicycles to Charlottesville kids and adults in need since 2001, but with the widespread rush to ride during the past calendar year, the nonprofit has shifted into another gear. According to Director of Community Development Lauren Riegl, Community Bikes doubled revenues from 2019 to 2020. The organization was fully registered as a 501(c)(3) as of February this year, and now it’s moving into a new central location in Preston Plaza. “It’s funny because it is this old organization, but in a lot of ways, we are starting fresh,” Riegl says. What hasn’t changed over the years? Community Bikes makes bicycles with wheels 24 inches and under available to any kid who wants one. It gives bigger bikes to adults, and partners with other nonprofits that have clients in need of transportation. The rest of Community Bikes’ inventory, collected via tax-exempt bicycle donations, is tuned up and sold to support the organization.

In 2020, Community Bikes gave 600 bicycles to children, and about 250 more to adults in need.

In 2020, Community Bikes gave 600 bicycles to children. It gave about 250 more to adults in need, and sold roughly 450 refurbished bikes. “For these families, kids’ bikes are expensive,” Riegl says. “They start with a balance bike and move up from there. They grow out of them. We help with waste, as well.” Outside of retail sales, Community Bikes runs on monetary donations. Until recently, the nonprofit was 100 percent volunteer-operated, but it’s now hired two fulltime and two part-time employees. The staff growth was a good thing, according to Riegl, because C’ville’s cyclers rushed to bike shops last spring. People who didn’t want to use what little public transportation was available needed a ride. Others wanted to exercise without crowding into gyms. Come summer, most bike shops were out of stock.

Kristen Musselman is the new Chief Hiking Officer for Devils Backbone Brewing Company.

@cville_culture

How’s this for a job description: Hike East coast mountains, drink beer, take pictures, and get paid $20,000. That’s the deal Devils Backbone Brewing Company announced this year, and unsurprisingly, outdoor enthusiasts flooded the brewery’s inbox with applications. After reviewing thousands of eager hiker-drinkers’ pitches, DBBC appointed UVA alum Kristen Musselman to be its first Chief Hiking Officer. Musselman, who currently works as a wilderness therapy field guide in Colorado, says she’s ecstatic to be spending the next six months hiking through all 14 states of the Appalachian Trail, while exploring little-known paths and outlooks along the way. “Like most things, there is no guidebook or roadmap that could have properly prepared me for how to be alone on this trail adventure,” says Musselman. “It’s the skinned knees, sweaty back, failed summits, and wrong turns that have continued to teach me how to be an outdoors woman and have given me the courage to continue taking on new challenges.” Part of the hiking officer’s job is to visit each state’s best overlook, as chosen by Devils Backbone Instagram followers. To commemorate the journey, the brewery partnered with artist Dr. Tyler Nordgren to create Savor the View Vienna Lager labels that feature images of the overlooks. “My three big passions are movement, people, and spending a ton of time outside, which is exactly what the CHO position was offering,” says Musselman. “I have such love for the outdoors and for connecting folks to the things that build them up.” As for her recommendations for unknown hikes around Charlottesville? “First of all, I love Devil’s Marbleyard for a stunning boulder field climb, the Rivanna Trail for a trail run, or one of the many wineries, breweries, or coffee shops around the C’ville area for a post-hike read,” Musselman says. “Venturing a little further, a trip to Wintergreen, Sky Meadows State Park, Raven Rocks, or Bearfence Mountain are well worth the drive.”

April 28 – May 4, 2021 c-ville.com

“By the end of every day, we were cleared out,” Riegl says. “It was sad. We want to be able to get as many people on bikes as possible.” The trend was hardly limited to Charlottesville. According to the National Bicycle Dealers Association, bike sales nationwide jumped by more than 40 percent in 2020. And the increase was none too soon—the previous year, 2019, saw bicycle unit sales decrease by more than 20 percent. The past year was not without its difficulties for Community Bikes, though. The group learned in December that it was losing its rent-free home at 405 Avon St. to a housing development, and would have to be out of the space by June of this year. Riegl says the team fortunately negotiated a new space and signed a letter of intent to move into 917 #D Preston Ave. in February. Riegl says she hopes the community’s increased interest in biking will continue, and NBDA’s forecasts indicate it might. Based on changing lifestyles, heightened interest in bicycling for recreation, and a continued need to take bikes to work, domestic cycle sales should continue to grow, with U.S. revenues reaching $8 billion by 2025. For its part, Community Bikes will continue to do what it can to make bicycling appealing—putting on free repair classes, holding bike-friendly events like group rides and bike-in movie nights, advocating to make the region more cycle-friendly, launching a trailer program to bring repairs to disadvantaged areas, and partnering with the Virginia Institute of Autism. “We don’t want the cost of bike repairs to be prohibitive, and a lot of people have a hard time getting back to the shop,” Riegl says. “We want to expand access...get bikes not just to the people who would immediately come to mind.”

founders involved with the business, but it remains a family affair; their kids often help out at the shop. Like many local restaurants, Baggby’s faced crushing challenges from COVID-19. “The pandemic killed our business,” LaPanta says. They’ve scaled back and spread out their seating, hoping to roll back those changes as the pandemic recedes. “We are lucky to have great loyal customers that have really helped keeping us afloat.” Pandemic or not, those diners keep coming back to Baggby’s for the comfort food they love. LaPanta says the turkey/bacon/ avocado Remarkable and the grilled Navajo and Pueblo chicken subs are perennial favorites. “Our chicken salad has always been popular,” LaPanta says, “but now folks are ordering by the pound for use at home.” With vaccinations underway, the LaPantas are looking forward to brighter times for Baggby’s—and perhaps the chance to try something new, like the cold lamb chop sandwich that Jon has wanted to add to the menu for years. “Keep a look out,” he says, “it may appear as a special soon.”

@cville_culture

aggby’s co-founder Jon LaPanta wants you to know two things. First: To everyone who’s reached out to help keep the beloved Downtown Mall soup-salad-and-sandwich shop going during the COVID-19 pandemic, thank you. “We have been humbled by how many of our customers have reached out not only as customers,” he says, “but letting us know how much it means to them that we are still here.” And second, to everyone else: Yes, Baggby’s is still around. “When we first opened, the challenge was to get the word out about Baggby’s,” LaPanta says. “Now we are faced with a similar challenge of letting people know that we are open and that the Downtown Mall is still a great place to visit.” After LaPanta’s father Mike retired in 1991, he and his wife Ann wanted a project to keep them busy. The LaPantas and their sons, Jon and Jason, fell for Charlottesville and the Downtown Mall—“a perfect fit,” Jon recounts. The Baggby’s name came from the brown paper bags in which they serve their food, “like the lunch bag you carried to school,” LaPanta says. LaPanta credits the shop’s decades of success to his family’s hands-on presence, making their dishes multiple times a day in small batches to ensure freshness. Jon and his wife Erin are the sole remaining

By Rob Brezsny

Gemini (May 21-June 20): Gemini poet Buddy Wakefield writes that after the Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami of 2004, “the only structure still standing in the wiped-out village of Malacca [in Malaysia] was a statue of Mahatma Gandhi. I wanna be able to stand like that.” I expect you will indeed enjoy that kind of stability and stamina in the coming weeks, my dear. You won’t have to endure a metaphorical tsunami, thank Goddess, but you may have to stand strong through a blustery brouhaha or swirling turbulence. Here’s a tip: The best approach is not to be stiff and unmoving like a statue, but rather flexible and willing to sway.

Cancer (June 21-July 22): No educator had ever offered a class in psychology until trailblazing philosopher William James did so in 1875. He knew a lot about human behavior. “Most people live in a very restricted circle of their potential being,” he wrote. “They make use of a very small portion of their possible consciousness, and of their soul’s resources in general, much like a person who, out of his whole bodily organism, should get into a habit of using only his little finger.” I’m going to make an extravagant prediction here: I expect that in the coming months you will be better primed than ever before to expand your access to your consciousness, your resources, and your potentials. How might you begin such an adventure? The first thing to do is to set a vivid intention to do just that.

Leo

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Virgo novelist Agatha Christie sold hundreds of millions of books,

Taurus (April 20-May 20): In her poem “Mirror,” Taurus poet Halina Poświatowska wrote, “I am dazed by the beauty of my body.” I applaud her brazen admiration and love for her most valuable possession. I wish more of us could genuinely feel that same adoration for our own bodies. And in accordance with current astrological omens, I recommend that you do indeed find a way to do just that right now. It’s time to upgrade your excitement about being in such a magnificent vessel. Even if it’s not in perfect health, it performs amazing marvels every minute of every day. I hope you will boost your appreciation for its miraculous capacities, and increase your commitment to treating it as the treasure that it is.

and is history’s most-translated author. While growing up, she had few other kids to associate with, so she created a host of imaginary friends to fill the void. They eventually became key players in her work as an author, helping her dream up stories. More than that: She simply loved having those invisible characters around to keep her company. Even in her old age, she still consorted with them. I bring this to your attention, Virgo, because now is a great time to acquire new imaginary friends or resurrect old ones. Guardian angels and ancestral spirits would be good to call on, as well. How might they be of assistance and inspiration to you?

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct.22): “To hurry pain is to leave a classroom still in session,” notes Libran aphorist Yahia Lababidi. On the other hand, he observes, “To prolong pain is to miss the next lesson.” If he’s correct, the goal is to dwell with your pain for just the right amount of time—until you’ve learned its lessons and figured out how not to experience it again in the future—but no longer than that. I suspect that such a turning point will soon be arriving for you.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): In her poem “Every Day,” Scorpio poet Denise Levertov wrote, “Every day, every day I hear enough to fill a year of nights with wondering.” I think that captures the expansive truth of your life in the coming weeks. You’ve entered a phase when the sheer abundance of interesting input may at times be overwhelming, though enriching. You’ll hear—and hopefully be receptive to—lots of provocative stories, dynamic revelations, and unexpected truths. Be grateful for this bounty. Use it to transform whatever might be stuck, whatever needs a catalytic nudge.

This is our town.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): I hope you’re not too stressed these days. There has been pressure on you to adjust more than maybe you’d like to adjust, and I hope you’ve managed to find some relaxing slack amidst the heaviness. But even if the inconvenience levels are deeper than you like, I have good news: It’s all in a good cause. Read the wise words of author Dan Millman, who describes the process you’re midway through: “Every positive change, every jump to a higher level of energy and awareness, involves a rite of passage. Each time we ascend to a higher rung on the ladder of personal evolution, we must go through a period of discomfort, of initiation. I have never found an exception.”

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): We can safely say that Anais Nin was a connoisseur of eros and sensuality. The evidence includes her three collections of erotic writing, Delta of Venus, Little Birds, and Auletris. Here’s one of her definitive statements on the subject: “Sex must be mixed with tears, laughter, words, promises, jealousy, envy, all the spices of fear, foreign travel, new faces, stories, dreams, fantasies, music.” In response to Nin’s litany, I’m inclined to say, “Damn, that’s a lot of ambiance and scaffolding to have in place. Must it always be so complicated?” According to my reading of upcoming cosmic rhythms, you won’t need such a big array of stuff in your quest for soulful orgasms—at least not in the coming weeks. Your instinct for rapture will be finely tuned.

though. It may lead us to flee from the challenges of the present moment and go hide and cower and wallow in nostalgia. But on other occasions, the fact that we are always at home in the past might generate brilliant healing strategies. It might rouse in us a wise determination to refresh our spirit by basking in the deep solace of feeling utterly at home. I think the latter case is likely to be true for you in the coming weeks, Aquarius.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): “Not everything is supposed to become something beautiful and long-lasting,” writes author Emery Allen. “Not everyone is going to stay forever.” Her message is a good one for you to keep in mind right now. You’re in a phase when transitory boosts and temporary help may be exactly what you need most. I suspect your main task in the coming weeks is to get maximum benefit from influences that are just passing through your life. The catalysts that work best could be those that work only once and then disappear.

Aries

Aquarius

(March 21-April 19): Poet Allen Ginsberg despairingly noted that many people want more, more, more life, but they go awry because they allow their desire for more, more, more life to fixate on material things—machines, possessions, gizmos, and status symbols. Ginsberg revered different kinds of longings: for good feelings, meaningful experiences, soulful breakthroughs, deep awareness, and all kinds of love. In accordance with astrological potentials, Aries, I’m giving you the go-ahead in the coming weeks to be extra greedy for the stuff in the second category.

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “One is always at home in one’s past,” wrote author Vladimir Nabokov. I agree. Sometimes that’s not a good thing,

(July 23-Aug. 22): “Someone in me is suffering and struggling toward freedom,” wrote Greek author Nikos Kazantzakis. To that melodramatic announcement, I reply, good for him! I’m glad he was willing to put himself through misery and despair in order to escape misery and despair. But I also think it’s important to note that there are other viable approaches to the quest for liberation. For example, having lavish fun and enjoying oneself profoundly can be tremendously effective in that holy work. I suspect that in the coming weeks, Leo, the latter approach will accomplish far more for you than the former.

Founded in 1914, the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA has been the core of animal welfare in the area for over a century. We are proud of being one of the first shelters to reach No-Kill status in 2006 and the work we have since done to increase our lifesaving capabilities with your generous support. While 2020 brought its challenges, we'll always remember the incredible support this community showed for the animals in our care. You made it possible for us to place 3,758 pets into homes, the highest number of adoptions in the 107-year history of the organization. We also took in 4,557 animals, which is our highest intake rate since 2007. Your gifts were truly lifesaving in 2020, and we are not slowing down in 2021!

In 2003, when I first started my job hunt as a senior in high school, I had no idea that I would find not only my first job, but my dream job. My name is Leah Williams, and I am the owner of Minerals & Mystics in Seminole Square Shopping Center. For 17 years, I was blessed to be a part of The Crystal Connection family. Kathy and Jim Campbell, the owners of The Crystal Connection, took a chance on a persistent high school student with no work experience. I had a positive and determined spirit and they took me under their wing. I learned from the best and I am honored to carry on the traditions and knowledge of that experience. I started with cleaning jewelry and grew into everything from working with our awesome customers to managing an amazing staff. I love working one on one with geologists and vendors from around the world to bring the best quality, affordable rocks, minerals and jewelry to Charlottesville.

In July of 2020, Kathy Campbell retired and with her The Crystal Connection did as well. In August, Minerals & Mystics opened in the same space with the same staff as its reincarnation. We made some changes and some updates, but we move forward honoring The Crystal Connection with love, remembering our roots, as we should in any spiritual practice. Minerals & Mystics is not just a retail store; we are here to grow together as a like-minded community, empowering each person on our paths of enlightenment. Join us for beautiful treasures, interesting conversations and shared knowledge.

The Mediation Center of Charlottesville (MCC) is here to help you move through the uncomfortable process of conflict resolution. Since 1984, MCC has been providing the greater Charlottesville area with a table to sit at and professional mediators to facilitate the very process most people would rather avoid. We do it by creating a safe, respectful environment and listening. We make sure all involved have an opportunity to speak their truth and be heard; then we look for common ground to build upon. We have conducted thousands of mediations, and we know there is usually at least one little plot of common ground, even if you don’t think there is, and that’s where we start, together.

As the only nonprofit in the area offering the services we provide, we sincerely thank you for your decades-long support, Charlottesville! Together, we are creating a more peaceful community.

48 From pushcarts to modern transportation, Pepsi-Cola Bottling Company of Central Virginia (PCVA) has withstood the test of time. As the holder of the oldest, written, and recorded Pepsi-Cola franchise, PCVA remains family owned and operated over 112 years after its birth in a basement on the corner of 4th and Water Street in downtown Charlottesville. Following the death of the company’s founder, Samuel Ambrose Jessup, or “Mr. S.A.”, in 1960, his youngest son, Jimmie Jessup became President of the company. Jimmie introduced many changes to PCVA, including a move in November, 1963 to a location on Millmont Street. PCVA eventually outgrew this location and in 1983 the current production and sales facility was constructed and occupied. Jimmie remained president of the company until his passing in February, 1984. After their father's death in 1984, Jay Jessup (President) and Suzanne Jessup Brooks (Executive Vice President), became the 3rd generation of bottlers at the helm of PCVA. PCVA has enjoyed over 112 years in the Charlottesville community and looks forward to many more!

The MFP program was created to reach some of the Food Bank’s most vulnerable clients—those living in more rural areas with no access to commercial food providers and/or food assistance services. There are 11 MFP sites, where the Food Bank brings a truck full of fresh produce and shelf-stable proteins to be distributed to families in need. Eight of the MFPs are in the Charlottesville area, serving an average of 175 families per distribution. “Since March, we began seeing an increase in pantry and Mobile Food Pantry visits (21 percent were first-time visitors, triple the number of first-time visitors last year),” said Millie Winstead, Director of Development for the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank. “The Mobile Food Pantry, meeting need by bringing food to where people live, has become an even more important outreach strategy than we could have imagined. CAAR’s gift goes beyond filling our neighbors’ pantries and tables, they are bringing hope to these communities.” “Food is a basic need for all of us. Food is also a way to embrace a culture, to come together as family. Food can be comfort and food can be a celebration. And the worry to provide it when you don’t have money coming in is the reality for so many of our neighbors,” said CAAR 2021 President Quinton Beckham. “We wanted to alleviate the worry for families as we move through the pandemic, just as we were able to do last year. And maybe too, embrace a family, celebrate

a culture of being one community and take this one weight off the shoulders of those in need.” CAAR raised over $30,000 for the Food Bank, the equivalent of roughly 120,000 meals, in 2020. An intimate check ceremony, as well as a CAAR volunteer day, will take place at the Fluvanna Mobile Food Pantry site at Effort Baptist Church (7820 Thomas Jefferson Parkway, Palmyra VA 22963) at 9:15 a.m. on Thursday, April 29th.

Charlottesville Habitat for Humanity’s Student Chapters Receive Three State Farm Grants Habitat at the University of Virginia (HUVA) and the Youth Leadership Team (YLT) of Habitat Charlottesville are two of a selected few campus chapters that received three separate grants from State FarmⓇ over the past two years. The grants awarded were aimed at catalyzing fundraising efforts in partnership with Habitat for Humanity Greater Charlottesville. Recently, State Farm agents, in partnership with Habitat for Humanity International, recognized the financial commitments and the work completed by Habitat at the University of Virginia and the Youth Leadership Team. Habitat at the University of Virginia and the Youth Leadership Team are student-led, student-initiated organizations on UVA and local high school campuses, respectively, that partner with Habitat Charlottesville to build, fundraise, advocate and educate to support the work of Habitat for Humanity. In partnership with the grants received from State Farm, HUVA and the YLT have used the funds to sponsor a home in the Harmony Ridge neighborhood, create a Cost of Home Campaign Introduction video, and fundraise and advocate for affordable housing in Charlottesville. In November of 2019, HUVA received a $20,000 matching grant toward the sponsorship of a new home. Using these funds and student volunteer labor, HUVA supported the construction of one of the completed homes in the Harmony Ridge neighborhood of Charlottesville, one mile from the UVA Grounds. In the fall of 2019, HUVA raised over $24,000 to supply the matching funds through their annual Rake-a-Thon. Additionally, the Youth Leadership Team received $5,000 in grant funds to produce a Cost of Home Campaign Introduction video in September 2020 in partnership with Light House Studios, and HUVA was awarded a $5,000 Chapter Matching Grant in August 2020. In partnership with the support of State Farm, high school and college student leaders were able to further advocacy efforts centered around affordable housing in the Greater Charlottesville area. “It was awesome getting to know other people who are passionate about increasing access to housing, and I now have role models for college and beyond,” said Kaukab Rizvi, a senior at Albemarle High School. His hope for the State Farm funded project is for it with “Habitat chapters and local organizations to bring awareness to the cost of home, inspiring people to get involved and find a voice.” “We are proud to support young leaders in advancing Habitat’s mission in communities across the country,” said Ed Woods, Director of Corporate Responsibility at State Farm. “At State Farm, we make it our business to be a good neighbor and are committed to building safer, stronger and better educated communities.”

On Wednesday, April 21, 2021 local students and State Farm representatives gathered virtually to celebrate the construction, fundraising, and advocacy efforts of Habitat at UVA and the Youth Leadership Team as they further access to safe, decent, and affordable housing in Greater Charlottesville. About Habitat’s Cost of Home Advocacy Campaign: Prior to the COVID Pandemic, more than 17 million U.S. Households were paying more than 50 percent of their total income on a place to live. Habitat’s Cost of Home is a five-year national advocacy campaign committed to mobilizing local Habitat organizations, partners, volunteers and community members across the country to find the solutions and help create policies that will allow 10 million people to meet their most basic needs. About Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville: Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville brings people together to build and rebuild homes and communities while catalyzing new pathways to safe, decent affordable housing. Our work has evolved from building one house at a time to developing vibrant, sustainable, mixedincome communities, where hardworking local families can achieve their dreams of homeownership. Since our founding in 1991, we have built more than 235 new homes and safely housed 2,000 neighbors, thanks to the commitment and dedication of our thousands of volunteers and supporters.

taycation. Birthed in 1944. Reached full maturity in 2020 and likely to be with us for a while longer. What better way to upgrade your staycation than to enjoy it in your own home in a beautiful environment a few hours away? In a post-COVID world, that style of vacation has become appealing to many potential buyers. Central Virginia has always attracted second home buyers due to its temperate climate, central east coast location, beautiful scenery, small towns, and recreational opportunities. Everything that makes it a great place to live, makes it an even better place to own a second home. The good news is that a segment of the population is coming through the pandemic in a great position to buy a second home. The bad news is there aren’t enough homes on the market to

BY CARLA HUCKABEE

meet this extraordinary demand. The same sellers’ market that plagues the rest of real estate buyers also makes it difficult to buy vacation properties and second homes.

Resorts and Rural are Big Winners Choose your ideal setting: lake front, mountain, rural, quaint towns, small cities. They’re all here in Central Virginia. Water communities on Lake of the Woods in Orange County, Lake Anna in Louisa County, and Fluvanna County’s Lake Monticello draw vacationers and year-round residents. The James, Rivanna, Rapidan, and South Rivers expand beautiful waterfront living options throughout the area. Rural counties beckon to part-time farmers, equestrians, view seekers and those who desire a little elbow room

between home and neighbor. More and more home buyers fit into these categories in our post-COVID world. But this region is defined by its mountains and two of the most popular resort communities can be found nestled among the ridges. Wintergreen Resort is famed for its four-season recreational opportunities and magnificent mountain views. The resort spans 11,000 acres on the eastern slopes of the Blue Ridge and offers buyers condominiums and vacation homes. While the focus is on outdoor recreation, a mountaintop spa and first-rate dining options balance the choices. Winter sports, 45 holes of championship golf on two courses, tennis, fishing streams, and trails through the woods make for yearround adventures. Add in Wintergreen’s proximity to the Nelson 151 Craft Beverage Trail and you’ve just sealed the deal

as truly having something for everyone. According to Tim Merrick, with Wintergreen Realty, LLC, 85 percent of Wintergreen homes are second homes. They appeal to those looking for an active lifestyle as well as those who appreciate being surrounded by woods and an incomparable view. The resort is ideally positioned within three hours of its top three feeder markets: Washington, Richmond, and North Carolina’s Research Triangle region. Two counties away and just 50 miles to the north of Wintergreen lies Massanutten Resort. With 6,000 mountain acres of adventure spilling into the Shenandoah Valley, Massanutten has become a premier four-season resort in the Mid-Atlantic region. On the docket are skiing, golf at either of two courses, play at the indoor/outdoor waterpark, hiking Shenandoah National Park, fish-

Proximity to Washington, Baltimore, and other east coast population centers makes Massanutten an easy choice as a place to spend your downtime by recharging and relaxing.

Market Drivers: More COVID didn’t create the demand for vacation properties in Central Virginia, but it sure did set the market on fire. Lifestyle changes fueled by the pandemic account for much of the increase in demand. It all resulted in the desire for more—more control, more flexibility, more space. “The demand for more control over every phase of the vacationing process is one of the key drivers of this heightened interest in second homes,” according to Michael Guthrie, Broker/CEO of Howard Hanna/Roy Wheeler Realty Company. “Even now, not everyone is ready to fly or spend a week on a cruise ship. A second home close enough to drive to is the perfect solution. By controlling your exposure, you control your risk.” More flexibility by employers freed up lots of time to spend in a second home, making internet availability a must. Sharon Donovan, REALTOR® with McLean Faulconer Inc., says, “Fortunately, Central Virginia has made some great progress. Rapid expansion of internet service has opened up many of our rural areas to the market. If there isn’t internet available

now, buyers still might be interested if they can see that expansion is going to hit a certain area soon. We know how important it is and we lead our ads with internet availability, so buyers know what their options are for a home office.” Almost everyone wanted more space after the pandemic hit, especially urbanites. The rolling hills, pasturelands, and majestic vistas of Central Virginia couldn’t be better positioned to fill that need. They say buying is mostly an emotional decision, and then the buyer looks for justification to support that decision. The year 2020 stoked the emotional appeal: having a place to call your own that you control. And 2021 delivers the financial justification: historic low interest rates, discretionary funds because of decreased spending in 2020, the promise of rising real estate prices, a seemingly unsustainable stock market. With these indicators in play, potential buyers are feeling the pressure to make their purchase now.

Investor Mindset Another reason for an unbalanced market is that the buyer pool has expanded. More potential buyers are entering the second home market with the expectation that renting the property part-time will help pay the mortgage. This allows buyers to make a stretch purchase in the hopes that the rental income makes the deal financially feasible. Industry leader Airbnb has more than 660,000 listings in the United States and homeowners are signing up at a rate of 14,000 per month. That popularity is causing many municipalities to increase regulations. Neighbors may not appreciate vacationing revelers and abnormal traffic when an owner leaves his home

in charge of partygoers for the week. Complaints and regulations are usually minimal in rural or resort locations away from more dense neighborhoods. REALTOR® Gerri Russell, with Avenue Realty, LLC, advises clients to fully understand any local regulations regarding short-term rentals before making a purchase. “There is a robust interest in having a second home. Some buyers want to recoup some of their costs by renting when they are not using the property. Others want to have a separate building on the property to rent out anytime. Converting a garage to an apartment or having an apartment over the garage is a popular configuration.” Konstant, too, cautions buyers to be astute about the myth versus the reality of potential Airbnb income. As a REALTOR® and an owner of a rental home in Massanutten, he knows buyers need to focus on a different set of parameters than the average residential buyer to achieve a healthy return. “I am seeing most second home buyers renting out their homes. During the early months of the pandemic, they used them to escape the cities, especially after all their renters cancelled. Since Virginia re-opened, owners are renting more than ever before. Additionally, there have been more homes sold to this sort of buyer. Evolve Vacation Rental named Massanutten Village the second-best place to buy a vacation rental for return on investment in 2020 in the United States. Even with that in a buyer’s favor, it’s not a guarantee of success. “Unfortunately, many of the newer owners find out the hard way that they don’t earn as much as they had hoped,” says Konstant. “I have seen a few homes that sold just a year or so ago come back on the market only to

“Crazy.” That’s how Guthrie describes the current real estate situation. “In my 40 years, I have never seen a market where there is such high demand in every single category of real estate transaction and in every price range.” When a homeowner buys a house, it’s usually a one for one transaction. One house goes on the market and one comes off. When a first-time buyer, investor, or second-home buyer purchases a home, the housing inventory goes down because they are not selling a home to counteract their purchase. The impact these secondhome buyers have had on inventory over the past year is significant. “More people are keeping their other home,” says Donovan. “They like the combination of Washington and Central Virginia, or fill-in-the-blank and Central Virginia. Everywhere is blooming, from Madison County down to Buckingham County. Vacation properties have become an expanded version of second homes. They are ‘temporary primary’ housing. People are using them as much as possible, more than ever before.”

No End in Sight? It’s tempting to think that this is the new reality. And there is plenty of supporting evidence to suggest there is no way out of this situation anytime soon. Guthrie says, “When you have 14-16 offers on a single property it’s hard to see how this ends.” Especially if what is going to decrease demand are higher interest rates, less discretionary income, or a decline in the overall economic outlook. But there are a couple of factors that may come into play to slow demand or increase inventory without having a

broader negative economic impact. After more of the population is vaccinated against COVID, some of those second-home buyers who bought strictly because of pandemic-related issues, may have second thoughts. If, in a mostly vaccinated country they no longer need a second home as a safe haven, they may decide to sell, adding another home to the inventory side of the equation. If, as Konstant forewarns, some investor-buyers get in over their heads and then realize that the short-term rental market isn’t quite as lucrative as they expected, they may offload their purchase. On the demand side, new U.S. Treasury Department regulations took effect April 1. The impact will be more expensive second-home mortgages. This will counteract some of the rush to take advantage of low interest rates. Rising prices may convince more owners to sell or bounce some potential buyers out of the market. These or any other factors causing an uptick in inventory will help shift to a more balanced second home market. There aren’t many places that can compete with Central Virginia as an ideal place to be at home. The combination of climate, awe-inspiring landscapes, and outdoor recreation makes it an appealing destination all four seasons. Easy access from so many major population centers and its central location on the east coast makes it particularly inviting for that home away from home. The pandemic has only increased the level of interest, perhaps to unsustainable levels. Guthrie calls this market frenetic. And if you are one of those buyers trying to find your perfect upgraded staycation, you can’t wait for this market to calm down just a bit. Carla Huckabee writes about high-performing real estate.
