THIS WEEK A lifelong city resident with a passion for mentoring the next generation. A young politician with a deft understanding of the levers of power. A theatrical superstar adapting classic works for the current moment. These are just a few of the people you’ll meet in this week’s feature (p.14)—and by the way, none of them have celebrated their 30th birthday yet. (Some of them aren’t even close.) This collection of rising stars makes up our annual Power Issue. In the past, the Power Issue has focused on the people who hold the power right now—which, let’s face it, usually winds up being a bunch of rich old men who everyone already knows about. So this time, we’re focusing on the next generation of movers and shakers, people who are challenging the status quo and excelling in their fields. Obviously, our list isn’t comprehensive—some of you gave a shout-out to the impressive young people you know in our question of the week (p.37), and if you have a rising star you feel deserves further recognition, definitely tell us. If you’re an older person, I hope you’ll read this feature and feel like the future is in good hands. Whether or not you understand them, you can’t deny that these young folks are bursting with ideas and talent. And if you’re under 30, I hope you’ll find inspiration here. I certainly do—I’m 24, and I’m astounded at the creativity, dedication, poise, and energy on display among this group of my peers. If you ask me, the kids are all right.—Ben Hitchcock

IN BRIEF Masks won’t be prosecuted

equal say at Montpelier

Virginia state law says it’s illegal to wear a mask in order to conceal your identity. For obvious reasons, that law was put on hold during the pandemic, but it’ll go back into effect on June 30, when the state government’s COVID-inspired state of emergency ends. Locally, however, people who plan to continue masking shouldn’t worry—the Charlottesville and Albemarle Commonwealth’s Attorney’s offices released a joint statement this week saying, “Those who wish to continue to wear masks in public to mitigate the risks of COVID-19 spread and exposure may do so without fear of prosecution.”

New cases, Charlottesville and Albemarle

From June 7 to June 21, Charlottesville and Albemarle combined reported 20 new cases of coronavirus. That’s the smallest number of new cases in a two-week stretch since the early days of the virus in the spring of 2020. The Blue Ridge Health District, which includes Charlottesville, Albemarle, and four neighboring counties, reported just two new cases on Monday and two new cases over the weekend. Sixty-eight percent of Albemarle adults and 57 percent of Charlottesville adults are fully vaccinated. Statewide, 60 percent of adults have had both shots.

A study from Johns Hopkins University highlights just how aggressive UVA and VCU hospitals were in suing patients for unpaid medical bills, reports the Virginia Mercury. Both facilities stopped suing patients in 2020 after facing public pressure over the practice, but the study reports that the two hospitals were the most litigious of 100 hospitals analyzed. From 2018 to 2020, VCU initiated legal action 17,806 times. UVA finished second at 7,107.

The Montpelier Foundation voted last week to share governance of the historic property with the Montpelier Descendants Committee, an organization comprised of descendants of the enslaved laborers who once lived and worked on the plantation. Montpelier is widely known as the estate of James Madison, the fourth U.S. president, but the Orange County property was also home to more than 300 enslaved laborers. In recent years, the organization has sought to bring their history to the fore. The move to formally share control of the property with the descendants community is “unprecedented,” says the foundation. James French, the chair of the Descendants Committee, praised the decision in a statement. “This vote to grant equal co-stewardship authority to the Descendants of those who were enslaved is groundbreaking,” said French, who’s a financial technology entrepreneur by day. “The decision moves the perspectives of the Descendants of the enslaved from the periphery to the center, and offers an important, innovative step for Montpelier to share broader, richer and more truthful interpretations of history with wider audiences.”

The Albemarle Planning Commission voted 6-1 in favor of a proposed development that will see 190 affordable units, and 332 total units, constructed near the Forest Lakes community off Route 29, reports The Daily Progress. Since the proposal’s debut in March, some Forest Lakes residents have voiced their opposition to the construction, but the planning commission cited the high cost of living in the county as a key reason for allowing the project to move ahead.

he University of Virginia is deeply invested in the study of democracy. On Grounds, you can study democracy at the Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy, or the Miller Center of Public Affairs, or the Center for Politics, or the Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service, or the Democracy Initiative in the College of Arts and Sciences, or the Karsh Center for Law and Democracy at the law school. Now, the school is adding another institute to the collection. In May 2019, UVA President Jim Ryan opened the university’s Presidential Ideas Festival with a vision for an institute of democracy at the university, and in June 2021, his vision is coming to fruition, thanks to a $50 million donation from Martha and Bruce Karsh. The Karsh Institute of Democracy, complete with shiny new facilities on the Emmet-Ivy corridor, will serve as a collaborative enterprise, bringing together scholars from all over the university to research and strengthen American democracy.

“The idea behind the institute started with a way to not take over those schools or centers, but to enhance and accelerate collaboration, so that we can do it in a more robust fashion,” says Melody Barnes, former director of the White House Domestic Policy Council under President Barack Obama, codirector for policy and public affairs at UVA’s Democracy Initiative, and inaugural executive director of the Karsh Institute. The Karshes made their money in investing, and are now part owners of the Golden State Warriors, among other endeavors. After getting his UVA law degree, Bruce Karsh clerked for Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, who was known as the swing judge during his time on the court.

Albemarle County, which had outgrown its downtown office building and was leasing additional space, is now reassessing what jobs require employees to work on-site.

to be part of a team. So they’re telling us they want a hybrid model, where they can be in the office two or three days a week.” “Sometimes the need to focus [on a project] means working from home works better,” Tessier says. “But a lot of what architects do is collaborative—showing your ideas to a colleague, noodling it through. Some of our teams have been getting together for meetings with masks.” His 14-person firm is in the process of developing a hybrid model that combines the best of both approaches. “We recently had our first face-to-face all-office meeting [since the shutdown]—which was just really nice.” But business owners also have to consider their customers’ needs and expectations. While most people seem to have adapted to Zoom meetings and digital data exchange, many still prefer in-person interaction. “We’ve given clients the option to meet anywhere they felt comfortable—in our office, at their home, outdoors at a restaurant, on Zoom,” says Heneberry. “I think that will continue.” Then there are logistical concerns. Would a hybrid model, allowing both remote and in-office work, mean supplying employees with high-tech workstations in both places? Do employees still need individual office space if they are only coming in one or two days a week? With employees working flexible hours, how does the company ensure responsive service and client coverage? Many of these decisions have an impact on the bottom line.

“Our employees have found they can get so much more done at home. But they also need contact with colleagues and clients.” DAWN HENEBERRY, OLD DOMINION CAPITAL MANAGEMENT

What about offices themselves? Prepandemic, Kilroy says, Albemarle County had almost outgrown its downtown office building and was leasing additional space. Now, with a teleworking policy in place, every manager is being asked to designate which positions can offer flexibility and which will require on-site work, so the county can reassess its space needs. ArcheMedX, which currently has core staff working out of office space at Vault Virginia, is also in the process of deciding what’s next. “We’ve proved we can do much more than we thought we could virtually, but there are times when being together with a white board is necessary,” says Selzer. “We’ll likely continue in a hybrid model, with some [physical] presence downtown— Charlottesville is still the heart and soul of ArcheMedX.” “I hope we can embrace what has worked,” says Selzer, “but there’s always a time and a need to meet face to face.”

ou get to wear slippers all day. You don’t have to commute. You have more flexibility with childcare. After a year of remote work, is the office a thing of the past? A high local vaccination rate makes the return to in-person work feasible for many area businesses, but that doesn’t mean everyone is headed back in. Some outfits have ditched office space and others are downsizing, as hybrid work arrangements become more common. Before COVID hit, many businesses were already accommodating employees who wanted to work from home occasionally— but others had to scramble. “When the shutdown happened, Albemarle County didn’t have a teleworking policy,” says Emily Kilroy, director of communications and public engagement for the county. “Within three days, people were sent home, and we had to make sure they had the equipment and IT they needed—which sometimes meant borrowing or renting laptops.” ArcheMedX, which develops software for life sciences and health care clients, was at the other end of the spectrum. “We have always had some remote employees, but most worked in our downtown office,” says Joel Selzer, co-founder and CEO. “As soon as the pandemic hit, we moved everyone to remote. We got them whatever they needed—workstations, desks, even furniture—from the office, and everything else we gave away or put into storage.” And the firm isn’t looking back. The company used to rent offices on East Main Street, but gave up the space last summer. “Our offices never went completely remote—we had staggered schedules, so attorneys could come in to work with staff a couple days a week,” says Mike Griffin, business manager at Tucker Griffin Barnes P.C., a law firm with four offices in central Virginia. “The decision now is when to allow clients back into the office, and how do we do that safely.” After safety, the big concern for employers and their workers is child care. “Fifty percent of our employees have children under the age of 18 at home,” says Kilroy, so the reopening of schools was a critical factor in bringing employees back. Tim Tessier, one of the principals at Bushman Dreyfus Architects, agrees: “I have teenaged boys, and we had homeschooled for a while—but that’s not as challenging as for employees who have grade-school kids.” As schools and daycares re-open, why would employees want to continue working from home? “Productivity,” says Dawn Heneberry, managing director of wealth management firm Old Dominion Capital Management. “Our employees have found they can get so much more done at home. But they also need contact with colleagues and clients

along better,” he says. Ryan’s introductory words on the institute made Vaidhyanathan worry that a safe space, rather than a space for truth, was his goal. In an op-ed posted shortly after the announcement of the gift, Ryan wrote that universities “have our own work to do in rebuilding trust and credibility with all Americans, especially the skeptics who portray us only as instruments of liberal indoctrination or protectors of ingrained systems of power.” “The most valuable work universities can undertake to support democracy is purposeful and nonpartisan,” he added. “The worst thing that can happen to the Karsh Institute is that we become merely academic and merely committed to making UVA look like a safe space for convening,” Vaidhyanathan says. “We have to tell the truth first.”

of Arts and Sciences that she can help meld together a disparate set of academic disciplines and perspectives on democracy.” “It will be really valuable to have somebody who can look across the water and bring us together on an ongoing basis.” Certainly, now seems like the perfect time to study democracy, with an unprecedented insurrection just six months in the rearview. According to Barnes, anyone you talk to might identify a different problem with our system, whether it’s white supremacy, or attacks on the media, or the rollback of key voting rights. Barnes will be working this summer to create a programming plan for the first couple of years, with a focus on how the university can be legitimately helpful in strengthening American democracy. To Barnes, the announcement of the institute was a “significant commitment by the university to the challenges facing democracy, to leverage these really wonderful assets that we already have at the university, and to bring new and original ideas with the heft of a pan-university institute to the table.” “We really are in desperate need of a deeper understanding of what has happened to American democracy,” says Siva Vaidhyanathan, professor of media studies and director of the Deliberative Media Lab, which is a part of the Democracy Initiative. “We need historical, sociological, and economic, as well as political analysis to really understand how we might rebuild American democracy.” However, Vaidhyanathan worries about what the Karsh Institute will become. “I don’t want to see the Karsh Institute end up being a mealy-mouthed, mediocre forum for talking about how we all need to get

Zeniah and Zaneyah BRYANT, 15 FIGHTING AGAINST SYSTEMIC racism and injustice runs in the family for the Bryant twins. They grew up watching their mother, Zeneida Howard, stand up for Black residents in town. And you already know about their older sister, Zyahna, who has become a global powerhouse in the years since she first petitioned City Council to remove the Robert E. Lee statue. Now, the 15-year-old activists are making their own mark on Charlottesville. Following the murder of George Floyd last year, the pair led multiple demonstations demanding justice for Black people killed by police. They also founded the Charlottesville Black Youth Action Committee to address racial issues in policing and education, like the school-to-prison pipeline. But activism is way more than just protesting, the sisters emphasize—it’s mutual aid, too. Throughout the pandemic, BYAC has distributed free food, water, money, and other necessities to unhoused people on the Downtown Mall, as well as paid for their hotel rooms. The new group has also hosted teach-ins on student activism, fundraisers for young Black mothers, and a Black joy festival. This fall, the rising Charlottesville High School sophomores plan to revive CHS’s Black Student Union—started by their sister—and encourage their peers to take advanced classes. They ultimately hope to inspire other Black youth to speak up for themselves, and refuse to be silenced. “There are generations coming after us,” said Zaneyah (standing on the right in the photo). “If we set things in place, they may not have to go through what we’re going through right now.”

Ames began singing as a child in church, and was attending Live Arts summer theater camps at age 9; by 12, they had joined the Virginia Consort, Charlottesville’s chamber chorus. After graduating from Oberlin College with degrees in theater and Africana studies, Ames returned to Charlottesville to dive even deeper into its theater and music scene. Ames is now leading those summer camps at Live Arts, and considers the Charlottesville Player’s Guild their “second home.” It was with the CPG that Ames directed Black Mac, an all-Black adaption of Macbeth, and more recently, staged their own original radio play, See About the Girls. Ames also teaches vocal lessons, using an Africana aesthetic that plays off of call and response. As they explain in a video for the Front Porch, “The song itself is a character. It gives you things to work with, and it is your job to respond to whatever it’s giving you.”

HENRY BORGESON KNOWS his way around a board meeting—and a charcuterie board. The avid cook and passionate foodie has been bringing his combination of epicurean passion and business savvy to his profession since 2017, when he became an indispensable member of the team at Charlottesville-born restaurant group Roots Natural Kitchen. The Roots empire launched in 2015 with just a single restaurant on the Corner. In less than six years, the eatery chain has grown to include three Virginia locations—in Charlottesville, Richmond, and Blacksburg—as well as further afield in Newark, Delaware, and State College and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Borgeson, a 2014 UVA grad, began serving as Roots’ director of finance in 2017 and quickly moved into the C-suite, starting as chief financial officer in November 2018. If you want to turn leafy greens into greenbacks, Borgeson’s your man.

Karina MONROY, 28

WHEN JEREMIAH JORDAN started working at Ivy Provisions in 2017, he was a line cook with little passion for food and zero professional culinary experience. Jordan had tasted excellence before—he went to college to play football and had a bright future ahead. But legal issues brought him home and away from his athletic career. That’s when a friend helped Jordan get his foot in the door at Ivy Provisions. In just two months, the restaurant promoted him from cook to kitchen manager. By May of this year, he had worked his way up to Ivy Provisions’ sous chef. “Ivy welcomed me back with open arms,” Jordan says. “I love food. It’s become more of a passion because I take pride in my work.”

KARINA MONROY ARRIVED from California a couple of years ago, and since then she’s wasted no time getting involved in the Charlottesville community. She’s the executive director of Creciendo Juntos, on the planning committee at the Bridge Progressive Arts Initiative, and co-creator of the wellness podcast Cultivando Tu Bienestar. That on its own would be enough to merit a mention as a rising star, but Monroy is also a gifted artist. Lately, she’s been creating delicate needlework renditions of figs, cantaloupes, and pomegranates, fruits she remembers from her grandmother’s orchard in Southern California. For Monroy, a daughter of Mexican immigrants, a typically feminine task like needlework is an entryway to exploring the nuances of womanhood in Mexicano and Chicano culture. As she puts it in a video made for New City Arts, “It’s been my way of showing the women in my culture that the work we’re doing is appreciated and an art form.” She’s spreading that feeling of appreciation and sisterhood with La Cultura Cura, an intergenerational support group for Latinx women and femmes, that promotes “sisterhood, culture, social solidarity, and self-actualization.”

WHEN GEORGE FLOYD’S murder sparked worldwide protests against police violence last year, actor and poet Shelby Marie Edwards felt a shift inside herself. She wanted social justice to play more of a role in her day-to-day life, but was unsure what her next move should be. She soon learned that the Public Housing Association of Residents was hiring its first-ever executive director, and—after a pep talk from activist Joy Johnson—felt called to continue the work of her mother, former vice-mayor Holly Edwards. For years, the elder Edwards served low-income Charlottesville residents as a program coordinator for PHAR and a parish nurse for the Jefferson Area Board for Aging. Following her mother’s death, Edwards moved back to Charlottesville in 2019 from Chicago, where she’d been teaching theater and writing classes for Black youth. She began working as a development coordinator for Live Arts, and offering performance arts classes through the Boys & Girls Club of Central Virginia. Since joining PHAR in December, Edwards has hired a leader for the nonprofit’s Residents for Respectful Research program and revamped its website and online presence. She’s also working to bring on more resident organizers, as well as expand the resident-led redevelopment of the city’s public housing. Edwards hopes to act full-time one day, but plans to stick around at PHAR long enough to build up the next generation of young Black resident leaders. And she doesn’t rule out following in her mother’s footsteps. “If I just so happen to be in Charlottesville for a long time, it is not outside of the possibility that I would run for City Council,” she says.

RAYLAJA WALLER HAS always been passionate about working with kids. Born and raised in Charlottesville, she grew up babysitting her siblings and cousins. Since graduating from CHS in 2015, Waller has served as a camp counselor for Charlottesville Parks & Recreation and a substitute teacher for the city schools. And now she is the fifth- through eighth-grade pathway coach at City of Promise, which prepares youth living in Westhaven, 10th and Page, and Starr Hill for college and careers. Waller joined City of Promise’s first youth council as a high schooler, helping to organize free community events for children. While earning her degree in criminal justice and political science from Virginia State University, she returned to City of Promise multiple times to speak about her college experience. Now, as a pathway coach, Waller helps kids explore career options and extracurricular activities. She’s currently creating a curriculum of skills for students to develop before high school, including critical thinking, media and technology literacy, time management, leadership, and self-empowerment. In the future, she plans to collaborate with City of Promise to create her own nonprofit to help divert youth who are headed in the wrong direction by providing them with mentorship, jobs, and career development. “Become that teacher, become that lunch lady or man, become that school janitor—they also make a difference,” she says. “Having that Black person in the building that cares for these kids, even if you’re not the one teaching them, is giving us a better outcome of how our kids act and what they get involved in.”

Abel LIU, 21

HAVE YOU HAD a great meal in Charlottesville recently? If so, there’s a good chance Alicia Simmons was involved. She began her career in cuisine at Tavola, in Belmont, after graduating from the Piedmont Virginia Community College culinary arts program. A standout sous chef at the Italian eatery from 2015 to 2020, Simmons left Tavola last year for a gig as the sous chef at Restoration Crozet at Old Trail Golf Club. But now she’s back in Belmont—as Tavola’s executive chef, a job Simmons chose over several other offers. “She got her start here, and the talent was immediately obvious,” Tavola owner Michael Keaveny says. “[We] watched her grow into a leader and are very excited to have her take on the next era of Tavola.”

ABEL LIU IS a UVA Echols Scholar, Royster Lawton Fellow, Truman Scholar, and the nation’s first university student government president who was openly transgender when elected. Before winning the Student Council presidency in a landslide last spring, Liu served as a Student Council representative and chair of the Representative Body for two years. The rising fourth-year says he’s passionate about building systems of dual power by using an institution like Student Council alongside a counter institution, such as Young Democratic Socialists of America at UVA, Minority Rights Coalition, or the Virginia Student Power Network, to exert the maximum amount of pressure and leverage against the ideological and political hegemony of the university. In recent months, Liu worked alongside YDSA, Minority Rights Coalition, and the Covid Action Now campaign to secure optional credit/no credit grading policies for the entire 2020-2021 school year and a tuition freeze for 2021-2022. Currently, he’s teamed up with Housing and Residence Life, the Equity Center at UVA, UndocUVA, the Black Student Alliance, PLUMAS, and the University Police Department to set up alternative sources of care in non-violent situations, such as mental health crises or alcohol poisoning. He hopes this will lead to long-term funding in Student Health and Counseling & Psychological Services. With that many initiatives underway, it might seem like Liu is all business, but he has a more relaxed side, too. In his free time, he enjoys bird watching and hiking with Chip, his 6-month-old puppy.

IBBY HAN IS an organizing powerhouse—not just in Charlottesville, but throughout the commonwealth. As the co-executive director of Virginia Student Power Network, Han has supported students across the state in organizing efforts, from VCU’s campaign to get police out of mental health crises to UVA’s Covid Action Now campaign, calling for better support for students and workers during the pandemic. Han’s work centers around creating sustainable student organizing, which can be difficult when student leadership turns over every four years. VSPN spends a lot of time running training and leadership development programs for student organizers. In addition to helping students directly, VSPN does statewide legislative advocacy, and has advocated for financial aid for undocumented students and marijuana legalization. Han says one of her proudest moments was the community’s COVID response last year. She worked with Cville Community Cares and Congregate Charlottesville to design mini-grant programs to move money quickly to those who needed it. Han emphasizes that everything she’s worked on has been with a tight-knit team of people who have deep trust in each other. Still, it’s clear that any team with Han on it is a team that gets things done.

MILLA CIPRIAN IS a standout volleyball player—but also a standout for her work off the field, where she’s become an important advocate for Black student-athletes at UVA. Milla helped start an organization called BOSS, or Black Student-Athletes Offering Service and Support. BOSS aims to create and build community among Black athletes and to create a safe space where they can authentically be themselves. Throughout COVID, Ciprian worked to set up talks with Black alumni, and orchestrated conversations between the Black studentathlete community and the non-Black student-athlete community to figure out how they can work together to move the needle forward within the athletic community. Last fall, BOSS collaborated with the university’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee to register all student-athletes on every team to vote. And if all that wasn’t enough, Ciprian was also chosen to sing the national anthem before the start of the UVA men’s basketball team’s 2019 Final Four appearance. Oh say can you see a bright future for Ciprian? Because we sure can.


Alex BRYANT, 28 WHEN IT COMES to working for your community, Alex Bryant walks the walk. In addition to serving as the new associate director of IX Art Park, Bryant is president of the Downtown Business Association, secretary for the African American Teaching Fellows, and a board member at Bennett’s Village and Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Central Blue Ridge. “These one-on-one connections are the ripples that will start creating a really cohesive community,” he says. “I want to do whatever I can do to help to foster and build that community. In Charlottesville it hasn’t always been that way, and there’s a lot of work to do ahead.” After receiving a degree in music from the University of Virginia in 2015, Bryant, originally from Richmond, became the coordinator of Monticello’s Heritage Harvest Festival, highlighting the impact and influence enslaved laborers had on Southern food. He then began volunteering with the Tom Tom Foundation’s food programs before serving as the nonprofit’s project manager, operations director, and, eventually, managing director. “It’s so easy to just give money to a nonprofit...but everyone’s got time and talents that they have,” he says. “Just showing up and asking, ‘How can I plug in and use what I know to help you guys?’—that’s what I really love.” At IX, Bryant says he’ll work to make the arts more accessible through community outreach, educational programming, and partnerships with local art galleries and organizations. He also plans to expand The Looking Glass immersive art space this fall, as well as collaborate with diverse local artists to redo the art park’s murals and sculptures. And most importantly, he will make sure IX remains free for everyone.

IF YOU LOVE local news, you owe Allison Wrabel a big thank you. Over the past six years, she has written more than a thousand stories for The Daily Progress. After receiving a degree in journalism from the University of Missouri in 2015, Wrabel, a Cleveland native, was tapped to apply to the Progress by a mentor at her school. Then-Progress editor-in-chief Nick Matthews had reached out, and was looking to hire new grads from his alma mater. Wrabel started off at the Progress reporting on the local business community, and has been on the Albemarle County beat since 2017. In addition to covering hours-long government meetings, she writes about transportation, housing, land use, and other pressing issues that impact the county. “I really enjoy talking to people. That’s the part I like most about it,” she says of her job. “I love helping people know what’s going on in their community.” It’s no secret that journalism is in a period of upheaval, with layoffs and pay cuts happening at news organizations across the country. But Wrabel wants to stay in the business for good. She sees herself doing long-form investigative reporting in the future, perhaps in a bigger city. “When will that happen? I don’t know,” she says. “But eventually someday, hopefully!”

When she chose photography as an elective in her freshman year at Charlottesville High School, she couldn’t have imagined that she’d graduate with her own thriving portraiture business—as an alternative to the corporate school picture services that create the same posed images over and over, Hendricks spent much of her junior and senior years taking photos of her fellow students. “I created an Instagram account (@shendricksphotography), which attracted attention, and my business grew from there,” says the 2021 grad. She estimates that she’s snapped over 5,000 shots since launching in 2019, and says Sabrina Hendricks Photography will remain in business while she attends the University of Virginia in the fall.

THE POWER ISSUE

ZIMBABWE NATIVE AND UVA soccer player Cabrel Happi has been a winner in the studentathlete community on Grounds. As president of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, he’s made it his mission to empower student-athletes and utilize the power and platform that they have. Happi says student-athletes have a unique college experience, living season by season rather than semester by semester, which makes it easy for them to forget that life exists outside their sport. He says he hopes to remind his peers that they’re students first, and that the platform studentathletes are given should be used for the betterment of society. He pointed to the Groundskeepers initiative, started last fall by Black football players, as an example of student-athletes taking advantage of their platform to empower and educate others. You might think that a soccer player’s feet are his most valuable asset, but Happi has another trick at his fingertips. When he’s not advocating for change or speeding down the pitch, he works as a hand model—his wrists have appeared in multiple watch advertising campaigns. So watch out, everyone!

YAS WASHINGTON IS running for City Council. Oh, and she’s only 23. After graduating from Albemarle High School in 2015, Washington served as an administrative assistant for the Albemarle Housing Improvement Program and as a youth counselor in the city’s human services department. In 2019, she founded Rocket Science Integrated, which uses art to raise awareness about equity issues. Working on campaigns for Albemarle Commonwealth’s Attorney Jim Hingley in 2019 and Congressional candidate Dr. Cameron Webb in 2020, Washington came away with a passion for criminal justice reform, affordable health care, and environmental sustainability. She realized she wanted to be more involved in setting critical policies and making systemic change. “Just because [someone] lives in a particular area and wouldn’t typically have access to certain things or opportunities, that shouldn’t cause them to be put in a predicament where they’re not able to see themselves in a different position,” she says. If elected to City Council, Washington’s top priority is to work with the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail to allow people charged with low-level offenses or nonviolent crimes to be released before their trial with affordable bonds. She also wants to reallocate ACRJ funds to social work, education, and civic programs, and see more people diverted to alternatives to incarceration. No matter the results in November, Washington sees herself in politics for the long run. “The true way to bring about change and break down barriers is by having more Black Americans not just in elected positions, but positions of power,” she says.

La Bohème cast members rehearse ahead of two Charlottesville Opera shows this week at the Ting Pavilion.

Every day is pride day, but especially on Thursdays in June at Vitae Spirit’s Pride Party Happy Hour. The bartenders serve up rainbowcolored cocktails as they bop to a fabulous playlist, and you can peruse a selection of queer prints and artwork made by staff or enter a raffle benefiting the Charlottesville Pride Community Network. If you show up decked out in rainbows, expect an especially enthusiastic reception from everybody in the place. Free, 5-9pm. Vitae Spirits Distillery Downtown, 101 E. Water St. vitaespirits.com.

THURSDAY 6/24 & SATURDAY 6/26

FILE PHOTO

There’s something timeless about cash-strapped bohemians in love, which may be why La Bohème, first staged in 1896, has become one of the most performed operas in the world. Charlottesville Opera’s outdoor performance is updated to occur during the profound social changes of 1960s Paris, and the 90-minute abridged production features Charlottesville’s own Jeremy Weiss as a principal player. Oh, and the chemistry between the singers who play the lead couple? It ain’t faked—the pair are married in real life. $15-50, 8pm. Ting Pavilion, 700 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. tingpavilion.com.

A successful pairing Culinarian Myo Quinn’s unexpected journey to Charlottesville arts@c-ville.com

M

yo Quinn admits that she was never supposed to end up in Charlottesville. But when COVID-19 surged through New York City in spring of 2020, she and her husband packed their three boys into a rental car and headed south. They stopped in Orange, Virginia, for a night. That turned into a week, then a month. Eventually Quinn says they set their sights on “the biggest, closest town” and landed in Charlottesville. It wasn’t the first time Quinn had made a radical pivot. She quit a hedge fund career after having her second child, and went to culinary school, where she put her love of cooking and her mother’s food wisdom together for what she calls her second life. After cooking on the line for Danny Meyer’s Gramercy Tavern and Untitled, Quinn turned to food writing and recipe development. Her contributions can be found digitally on the Food Network, Delish, and Good Housekeeping. Last fall, her friendship with Holly Hammond of Whisper Hill Farm led to the formation of Pear, an IX Art Park Farmers Market stall that offers unique baked goods. This year, it’s been more important than ever to be optimistic when we can, and Quinn’s arrival on the local food scene definitely counts as a bright spot.

Do you have a favorite or a major success? The platform would measure that by likes, or comments, or ratings. For me, I am proudest when it’s a recipe that is familiar to me. A recipe that comes from something that I cook frequently for my family. Most recently it was a miso-braised kale that is served over multigrain rice. Was cooking a big part of your childhood? Yes. My mother is a very good cook. She is also a very smart cook. I always joke that all of the things I could’ve learned in a professional kitchen I came into the professional kitchen already knowing because my mom had taught me: How to be efficient. How to be thoughtful. How to work with urgency. How to clean up as you’re working. And how to be a better eater, which means trying everything. How did Pear come to be? Pear is the result of a friendship between Holly of Whisper Hill Farm and me. We met at the IX farmers’ market last summer. Over this past Christmas holiday, Holly came up with the idea to make cookie boxes...I think the final count was 4,200 cookies between the two of us.

Myo Quinn says her mother taught her most of the things a chef should know: How to be efficient, thoughtful, work with urgency, and clean up as you go.

That number is representative of how Holly and I approach life. We often joke that we do everything with gusto. So Pear is a continuation of holiday baking. Holly recently went back to farming so it’s just me right now. Every Thursday on Instagram we announce the menu that will be available on the following Saturday. I always try to have something with citrus, seasonal fruit, chocolate, caramel, and spice; something with a vegetable; and something with cinnamon. Recently I had an ah-ha moment when I realized I needed to always have something for kids. Because when a kid walks up and says, “This is all grown-up stuff ” and walks away, the whole family walks away.

What are some of the local discoveries that have impressed you? When I arrived I put out a message on a Facebook group, asking, “What is the one thing that represents Charlottesville?” and people said it was the ham biscuits. So we worked our way through the ham biscuits. I think something Charlottesville does really well is curry. Thai curry, even compared to New York, the red curry from Chimm. Pearl Island chicken curry is phenomenal. I went out of my way to talk to [chef Sober Pierre] because I was in tears when I had it. I was like, “Wow. I didn’t realize how homesick I was.” What do you make of Charlottesville’s food scene? As a chef that has been cooking and eating in New York City for the past 15 years or so, the biggest challenge I’ve had is to figure out what this community is willing to eat. Just like each family has specific eating habits, each community has food preferences. There are times when I feel very vulnerable baking here. I love that the customers will ask lots of questions and try things, then come back every week. But I’m making something completely different, and always feeling like, “Are people gonna come?”

What does a recipe developer do? There are two approaches. First, you pitch a recipe that you want to put out there. For example, I’m Korean so it might be a Korean recipe that the Food Network is lacking. If it gets approved, you write the recipe from beginning to end. You cook it, test it. Then

What ingredient will never be used in your cooking? I grew up in Asunción, Paraguay. There are so many mango trees there, and as a child you ride your bicycle on the roads and you squash the mangoes. It splashes up through your bicycle wheels and you end up smelling of ripe mango, which some people covet, but it reminds me of really hot, humid summers where you just can’t get rid of it. So, mangoes.

a big part of it is introducing it to the reader. What it is, what to keep in mind, what’s important—the tips and tricks. A second way is that the platform might come to you and say, for instance, “We don’t have a good stuffed cabbage recipe.” So they’ll assign a recipe to you. You’ll have to research it. If it’s a flavor profile you’re not familiar with you’ll have to make it several times. Ask the right questions to the right people.

The deep end Sharon Shapiro’s new show reflects America through a swimming pool By Sarah Sargent arts@c-ville.com

Sharon Shapiro’s “Stars and Stripes” is on view in “Social Fabric,” her exhibition at Second Street Gallery.

The work focuses on what it means to be female in America and, given the themes explored in the work, their patent vulnerability jolts the viewer. We’re not quite sure what’s up except that an overall feeling of discord pervades the work. Shapiro is adept at adding just the right cultural references—flip flops, Birkenstocks and wrist adornments position the works in their time period. Similarly, the artist appropriates architectural items, the Palladian window and lantern, as vestiges of an antebellum South. Her use of watercolor has an insubstantiality that goes well with the pool theme and also the fragility of the girls. The work has the feeling of collage, with the fore-

tive entreaty to remind us of who we can be. Other recurring objects include Charlottesville’s Robert E. Lee statue, a Palladian window and lantern from the Albemarle Charlottesville Historical Society, tiki torches, and three teenage girls. The work focuses on what it means to be female in America and, given the themes explored in the work, their patent vulnerability jolts the viewer. Not only are they young and tender, they’re also members of a generation that faces a troubled legacy on many fronts. Shapiro’s girls seem to be watching while functioning as symbolic reminders of what’s at stake. The triangular arrangement of “Traveller’s Rest” recalls heroic academic-style paintings. In this case, the mounted general and his horse are relegated to the background. The main action is in the contemporary color scene at the bottom. What are the girls doing here? Why is one of them gesturing with an American flag, and what does the expression on her face mean?

Originally drawn to swimming pools for aesthetic reasons and because “they’re fun to paint,” Shapiro began to dig deeper into their history. “We didn’t really talk about it in the South when I was growing up. Like, why weren’t there any Black kids at the public pool?” She goes on to point out that, following integration, many municipalities opted to fill in their pools rather than integrate them—a clear example of how racism hurts everyone. Initially, Shapiro, who is white, was hesitant to paint people of color and their experiences. “But then when 8/12 [the Unite the Right Rally] happened right here in Charlottesville, I thought, ‘I can’t not make work about this.’” Her pools run the gamut, from the Villa Artemis’ Grecian-style exemplar in Palm Beach, Florida, immortalized in a 1959 Slim Aarons’ photograph of socialite C.Z. Guest, to an above-ground number in the yard of a foreclosed house, and the abandoned pool at the defunct motel on the top of Afton Mountain. Collage has always been an important aspect of Shapiro’s work. She produces both actual collages and trompe-l’oeil versions made by layering media and images. In both cases, what occurs is a fracturing of the image akin to how things appear in dreams and memory. Shapiro uses a language of bright colors and quotidian settings to depict exceedingly serious matters. This contrast between messaging and content serves to highlight the latter, and the comfortably familiar trappings enhance the sense of foreboding inherent in the work. Various iterations of the American flag are repeated throughout this exhibition. The flag has become loaded symbol, often co-opted by the political right, but in Shapiro’s work the flag seems to express a plain-

ground superimposed on the statue. Photo transfers of newspaper and Playboy magazine articles are scattered across the surface, reinforcing the collaged effect and alluding to the patriarchal forces surrounding the girls. Lee’s horse, Traveller, is beautifully rendered in graphite, and while the statue’s clearly been demoted, it still looms over us. In “Stars and Stripes,” the girls appear again, this time in front of an expanse of graffiti. They appear to be on a balcony or a viewing stand of some sort, with an unraveling flag draped over the balustrade. To their left hangs a fancy chandelier. The girl in green (the same model as the girl in red) is partially replicated, like an oddly disturbing Photoshop gone wrong. The girls are watchful, of each other and of things we can’t see. A 13-star flag forms the background of “Miss 1976 (Spirit).” Again, Shapiro layers mostly pool-related images—the aboveground pool, assorted vintage lawn furniture, an inflatable tube. She reduces the palette to yellow, orange, and hot pink with a touch of blue, recalling the Day-Glo aesthetic of 1970s posters. Examining the photo transfers, one sees the girls standing in front of the Lee statue plinth, casually holding tiki torches like lacrosse sticks over their shoulders. These once-benign items now trigger traumatic memories of the Unite the Right torchlight parade. In “Anthem (Once Upon a Time)” Shapiro replaces the WASP icon at the Villa Artemis with a young Black woman wrapped in the flag. She doesn’t have a shadow, which may mean she’s otherworldly, and perhaps just an apparition. But her being here proclaims she has as much right to a place in this narrative as someone like Guest. “For me it’s got to be both,” says Shapiro about balancing aesthetics with the underlying message of her work. “It’s got to be something that I want to investigate. Painting is like a puzzle, you’re setting up problems and then you’re solving them with paint.” With “Social Fabric,” Shapiro remains true to her goals, creating works brimming with drama and visual allure that urge us to ponder the issues she explores.

TES

VILL

E


By Rob Brezsny

Cancer (June 21-July 22): “I was so flooded with yearning I thought it would drown me,” wrote Cancerian author Denis Johnson. I don’t expect that will be a problem for you anytime soon. You’re not in danger of getting swept away by a tsunami of insatiable desire. However, you may get caught in a current of sweet, hot passion. You could be carried for a while by waves of aroused fascination. You might find yourself rushing along in a fast-moving stream of riled-up craving. But none of that will be a problem as long as you don’t think you have something better to do. In fact, your time in the cascading flow may prove to be quite intriguing—and ultimately useful.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): In my opinion, psycho­ logy innovator Carl Jung, born under the sign of Leo, was one of the 20th century’s greatest intellects. His original ideas about human nature are central to my philosophy. One of my favorite things about him is his appreciation for feelings. He wrote, “We should not pretend to understand the world only by the intellect; we apprehend it just as much by feeling. Therefore, the judgment of the intellect is, at best, only half of the truth, and must, if it be honest, also come to an understanding of its inadequacy.” I bring this to your attention, Leo, because the coming weeks will be a favorable time to upgrade your own appreciation for the power of your feelings to help you understand the world.

Virgo

(May 21-June 20): “We were clever enough to turn a laundry list into poetry,” wrote author Umberto Eco. Judging from astrological omens, I suspect you’re now capable of accomplishing comparable feats in your own sphere. Converting a chance encounter into a useful new business connection? Repurposing a seeming liability into an asset? Capitalizing on a minor blessing or breakthrough to transform it into a substantial blessing or breakthrough? All these and more are possible.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct.22): Author Aslı Erdoğan writes, “It had been explained to me from my earliest childhood that I would know love—or that thing called ‘love’—as long as I was smart and academically brilliant. But no one ever taught me how to get that knowledge.” I’m sorry to say that what was true for her has been true for most of us: No one ever showed us how to find and create and cultivate love. We may have received haphazard clues now and then from our parents and books and movies. But we never got a single day of formal instruction in school about the subject that is at the heart of our quest to live meaningful lives. That’s the bad news, Libra. The good news is that the rest of 2021 will be one of the best times ever for you to learn important truths about love.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Before he journeyed in a spaceship to the moon in 1971, Scorpio astro­ naut Alan Shepard didn’t think he’d get carried away with a momentous thrill once he arrive at his destination. He was a manly man not given to outward displays of emotion. But when he landed on the lunar surface and gazed upon the majestic sight of his home planet hanging in the sky, he broke into tears. I’m thinking you may have similar experiences in the coming weeks. Mind-opening, heart-awakening experiences may arrive. Your views of the Very Big Picture could bring healing upheavals.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Sagittarian author Clarice Lispector observed, “In a state of grace, one sometimes perceives the deep beauty, hither­ to unattainable, of another person.” I suspect that this state of grace will visit you soon, Sagittarius—and probably more than once. I hope you will capitalize on it! Take your

time as you tune in to the luminescent souls of the people you value. Become more deeply attuned to their uniquely gorgeous genius.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Trailblazing Capricorn psycho­analyst Ernest Jones said, “There is no sense of contradiction within the unconscious; opposite ideas exist happily side by side.” In other words, it’s normal and natural to harbor paradoxical attitudes; it’s healthy and sane to be awash in seemingly incongruous blends. I hope you will use this astrologically propitious time to celebrate your own inner dichotomies, dear Capricorn. If you welcome them as a robust aspect of your deepest, truest nature, they will serve you well. They’ll make you extra curious, expansive, and non-dogmatic. (P.S.: Here’s an example, courtesy of psychologically savvy author Stephen Levine: “For as long as I can remember the alternate antics of the wounded child and the investigations of the ageless Universal played through me.”)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Aquarian guitarist Django Reinhardt was a celebrated jazz musician in occupied France during World War II. Amazingly, he was able to earn good money by performing frequently—even though he fit descriptions that the rampaging Germans regarded as abhorrent. Nazis persecuted the Romani people, of which he was one. They didn’t ban jazz music, but they severely disapproved of it. And the Nazis hated Jews and Blacks, with whom Reinhardt loved to hang out. The obstacles you’re facing aren’t anywhere near as great as his, but I propose we make him your role model for the next four weeks. May he inspire you to persist and even thrive in the face of challenges!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Piscean author Richard Matheson believed we’ve become too tame

and mild. “We’ve forgotten,” he wrote, about “how to rise to dizzy heights.” He mourned that we’re too eager to live inside narrow boundaries. “The full gamut of life is a shadowy continuum,” he continued, “that runs from gray to more gray. The rainbow is bleached.” If any sign of the zodiac has the power to escape blandness and averageness, it’s you Pisceans— especially in the coming weeks. I invite you to restore the rainbow to its full vivid swath: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. Maybe even add a few colors.

Aries (March 21-April 19): Author Albert Camus advised everyone to “steal some time and give it freely and exclusively to your own self.” That’s excellent advice for you to heed in the coming days. The cosmos has authorized you to put yourself first and grab all the renewal you need. So please don’t scrimp as you shower blessings on yourself. One possible way to accomplish this goal is to go on a long stroll or two. Camus says, “It doesn’t have to be a walk during which you’ll have multiple life epiphanies and discover meanings no other brain ever managed to encounter.” But I think you are indeed likely to be visited by major epiphanies and fantastic new meanings.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): Robert Mugabe was Zimbabwe’s leader for 37 years. In the eyes of some, he was a revolutionary hero. To others he was an oppressive dictator. He was also the chancellor of the University of Zimbabwe, where his wife Grace received her Ph.D. just two months after she started classes. I suspect that you, too, will have an expansive capacity to advance your education in the coming weeks—although maybe not quite as much as Grace seems to have had.

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): For the indigenous Ojibwe people, the word Adizokan means both “story” and “spirit.” In fact, story and spirit are the same thing. Everything has a spirit and everything has a story, including people, animals, trees, lakes, rivers, and rocks. Inspired by these thoughts, and in accordance with cosmic omens, I invite you to meditate on how your life stories are central elements of your spirit. I further encourage you to spend some tender, luxurious time telling yourself the stories from your past that you love best. For extra delightful bonus fun, dream up two prospective stories about your future that you would like to create. (Info about Adizokan comes from Ann and John Mahan at SweetWaterVisions.com.)

Waterfront Properties

JUNE 23 - 29, 2021 ISSUE 3025

48 LAKEFRONT PROPERTIES ARE ALL

THE RAGE. And why not? Beauty, recreation, and the soothing effects of water are hard to beat. With each of five major area lakes offering something a bit different, choosing the right one is the first challenge. Another challenge involves the most basic economic principle. The ultimate case of limited supply and high demand is playing out on the waterfront. These properties are behaving like the rest of today’s real estate market, on steroids. Whether you’re looking at the smallest neighborhood lake or some of the largest in the Commonwealth, size doesn’t matter. With so many buyers chasing so few properties, they need to be prepared, persistent, and patient. And the first step is to figure out the location, setting, and lifestyle that offer you the best choice.

IN CENTRAL VIRGINIA:

CAAR REAL ESTATE WEEKLY WWW.CAAR.COM

Lake Anna Bordering Louisa, Orange and Spotsylvania Counties, Lake Anna offers unique waterfront living and choices galore. Tiffany Hazelwood, REALTOR® and Associate Broker with Lake Homes Realty, says, “The lure of Lake Anna is the proximity to Northern Virginia, DC and points north, offering a peaceful retreat within one to two hours, making a weekend get-away easy, or even a full-time commute feasible. In the aftermath of COVID, Lake Anna has welcomed more full-time residents and looks forward to even more commercial growth.” The law of supply and demand is operating in full force here. Only a few waterfront homes are available. “Two years ago $500,000 was the entry point for waterfront homes, [and] that quickly jumped to $700,000 in one season. New construction is also hot. Some premium waterfront lots remain, as well as water access lots.” Buyers wanting access to the lake with lower costs have that option. “You can enjoy a golf cart ride to your neighborhood’s common area where you hop on your boat and go without the maintenance that comes with waterfront properties.” Before pinpointing one of the 100 communities along its 200-mile shore, you’ll have to choose between the 9,000 acres on the public “cold side”, or the private 4,000 acres warmed by Lake Anna’s most famous resident, Dominion Energy’s North Anna Nuclear Power Station. North Anna processes two million gallons of water per minute when fully operational, taking water from the cool side and discharging it into the warm side. The warm side can be 14 degrees warmer than the cool side. Hazelwood explains, “On the private side, you’ll enjoy swimming and boating as early as March and through the end of October, but you’ll experience hot-tub like temperatures in July and August. On the public side, you can boat to waterfront restaurants, marinas, and shops and have access to the bigger portion of the lake.” Many buyers purchase homes as vacation or investment properties, with the potential to bring in $6,000 in seasonal weekly rental income.

Challenges and Choices BY CARLA HUCKABEE

Lake Louisa If a neighborhood-sized lake is more your speed, head west about 25 miles to Lake Louisa and the gated resort community of Blue Ridge Shores. Still only an hour’s drive from Washington and Richmond, this is an attractive community for anyone wanting the cultural and transportation advantages the location provides, with a neighborhood feel to

the lake and community. Optimizing the five miles of shoreline, Lake Louisa offers two sandy beaches, a designated swimming area, walking trails, and an 1,100 square foot community center. The marina at the main beach has 38 boat slips with an additional 15 slips elsewhere on the lake. Residents enjoy the water on a variety of motorized boats, kayaks, paddleboats, Jon boats,

and canoes. Water skiing and tubing are also popular, with plenty of bass, carp, catfish, and perch to keep the fishermen coming back. JoAnna Von Arb, REALTOR® with Lake Homes Realty, notes that Blue Ridge Shores’ small size translates into few properties coming on the market. “Only 22 homes have changed hands in the last 12 months. Average lot sizes are one-third

range from the mid $150 to $400,000+. Land is even more scarce with prices ranging from $9,000 for water access to $100,000 for waterfront.” For a slower-paced resort lifestyle just an hour from city amenities, Lake Louisa and Blue Ridge Shores may be your ticket.

pool, and clubhouse. The amenity package resembles resort living at its best. And for all those reasons, inventory is down significantly with no sign of coming back soon. John Licata, REALTOR® and Managing Partner with Licata Group Real Estate Advisors, lives at Lake of the Woods and understands the dynamics driving interest: location and lifestyle. “DC is such a powerful economic engine. And Lake of the Woods is in a perfect position to benefit. It’s just a 90-minute drive to DC and new HOV lanes are coming. Or relax and take the train. We have a new Veterans Administration Hospital breaking ground within two years in Fredericksburg. All of these make Lake of the Woods even more attractive. “COVID is giving everyone with money a reason to buy a second home. I’m working with a couple from DC looking at Lake of the Woods. She is 35 years old and making in the upper six figures working remotely. He is a restaurateur commuting to DC. “The other end of the spectrum works here too. If I’m a young teacher with a family I may not be able to live in Fairfax, but I can afford to live at Lake of the Woods. If I’m making $150,000 at Amazon, Arlington may be too expensive, but I can afford to live at Lake of the Woods.” And like every other place subject to the law of supply and demand, prices are escalating. Quickly. “Things are selling so far above what I expected. This month we had a house listed at $715,000 thousand and it sold for close to $900,000. Typically, there are 80-90 homes for sale. Today we have 12. The balance between supply and demand is so skewed that the only possible outcome is for prices to shoot up. We have a water view lot listed at $80,000. A year and a half ago it would have been under $30,000.” Adding to the pressure is that fewer and fewer owners are even considering selling. Licata asks, then answers his own question. “Why would they sell? Even if they can get top dollar, where are they going to go? Secondly, the grandkids love coming here. And the owners love it here, too.”

LAKE ANNA

Lake Monticello Slightly bigger with 22 miles of shoreline and 12,000 residents, Lake Monticello is the largest community in Fluvanna County. And for good reason. Five beaches, a golf course, marina, club house, pool, tennis courts, and sports fields make this private waterfront community feel like resort style living year-round. And its affordable prices, and low taxes are a powerful draw for vacationers and full-time living. Vicky Wilson, Principal Broker/Owner of Monticello Country, REALTORS®, says “This past year has made people realize that they can afford a second home or vacation home at Lake Monticello. Compared to other places, our home prices and tax rates are low, bringing many buyers here for value or investments, or both.” “Buyers from Northern Virginia or other regions of the Northeast can’t believe what they’ve found here,” says Diane Miller, Associate Broker with Long and Foster Realty – Lake Monticello. Over the years, Miller has seen the population at the Lake shift from mostly vacation homes and retirees to households of all ages. “With Charlottesville only 13 miles away, you don’t need to wait until you retire to have this great lifestyle. Richmond is a bit further, but even that can be a reasonable commute, given the value we offer.” Miller echoes a familiar refrain. “Our biggest barrier right now is our low inventory. The problem is so few people want to leave once they move here!” Homes at Lake Monticello are mostly owner-occupied with full-time residents, although some are rented long term. Short-term rentals are not permitted at the Lake creating a more stable neighborhood feel to the area.

SMITH MOUNTAIN LAKE

LAKE OF THE WOODS

CAAR REAL ESTATE WEEKLY WWW.CAAR.COM

Smith Mountain Lake The second largest freshwater lake in Virginia lies 20 miles southeast of Roanoke. Called the “Jewel of the Blue Ridge,” Smith Mountain Lake (SML) has more than 500 miles of shoreline and 40 miles of navigable water from end to end. Sailors, paddlers, power boaters, and anglers easily coexist on SML’s more than 1,200 acres of water. Located four hours from Washington and two hours from Raleigh, SML is more rural than resort. Less than half of the population are full-time residents. The remainder are investors and owners who rent their homes for much of the year. Smith Mountain Lake State Park, along the northern shore, offers camping, boat rentals, hiking trails, guided night hikes and canoe trips. Buyers looking for a more developed area with shops and restaurants choose Franklin County on the north and west side of the lake. These locations are just a 30-minute drive from Roanoke.

No Bad Choice Charlene Jones, with RE/MAX Lakefront Realty, Inc., says, “The average price for a waterfront home is about $700,000. And lots are just under an acre. Most of our buyers come from Northern Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. Unfortunately, we are suffering through an inventory shortage just like everyone else. “About 30 homes are on the market now. We usually have more than 10 times that number of homes for sale. This year nearly every home, townhome, or condo is getting 10 to 12 offers with escalation clauses and no inspections. Many properties sell within hours. Some building lots are available, but construction costs have nearly doubled, with no guarantees of a quick delivery due to supply chain issues.” SML is an easy choice for those who value a large lake near the mountains and want to enjoy a mostly rural area. It’s an equally good choice for investors wanting to use their lake home part time.

Lake of the Woods Like the other lakes at the northern end of Central Virginia, Lake of the Woods (LOW) is in the sweet spot—just far enough away but not too far. Seventy miles south of Washington and 60 miles north of Richmond, LOW is a private gated community with 4,260 lots and a population approaching 9,000 residents. The Main Lake covers 500 acres and has two marinas and eight sand beaches. Residents enjoy swimming, waterskiing, tubing, sailing, pontooning, and paddle sports. Non-boat owners can rent fishing boats with motors, canoes, and kayaks, so water access is available to all. A 24-acre fishing lake has one boat launch and a sand beach. A no wake speed zone and no gas-powered engines make for a serene day of fishing. Besides water sports, LOW has a golf course, equestrian center, swimming

While this sounds like doom and gloom to a potential buyer, there is one compelling reason to stay in the hunt for that waterfront home. The supply will always be limited because no new waterfronts are being created. A limited supply will make it a reasonably good investment even at today’s prices. Partnering with the right REALTOR® will give you an advantage in a challenging market. It’s not enough to have a generalist who sells waterfront properties. An agent intimately involved in a specific market will give you the best chance for success. Start with the fun part by exploring these lakes to get a feel for what they offer and how they fit your lifestyle. There’s not a bad choice among them, simply good and even better still. Carla Huckabee writes about high performing real estate.
