THIS WEEK

Imagine that you live in an apartment building with100 residents. Then, all of a sudden, seven people show up in the street, with U-Hauls full of dressers and rugs and TVs. They tell you that they now live in your building. What happens next? Do you knock down a couple walls and squeeze everyone tighter together? Do you build another floor? Do the seven people who can pay the least have to move? The above scenario is a little bit of a simplification, sure—but it’s a useful way of thinking about what happened in the City of Charlottesville over the last decade. New census data (p. 9) shows that the city has 7.1 percent more residents than it did in 2010, even though it’s still just 10.26 square miles in size. In Albemarle, the change has been even more noticeable. The county’s 100-unit apartment building has 14 U-Hauls lined up outside. I’ve written before about how Charlottesville—which has long thought of itself as a town, legal designation be damned—is evolving into a real city under our very noses. The recent census figures offer another reminder of that transformation. Guiding this evolution is the next big challenge facing our city. That process is underway, with a new comprehensive plan and sure-to-be-debated zoning rewrite in the works. Get ready to make room.—Ben Hitchcock

Comedian Trevor Moore passes away Comedian and Charlottesville native Trevor Moore passed away unexpectedly last week at age 41. Moore attended Covenant High School and got his start on Charlottesville area public access television before becoming nationally known for sketch comedy work with his group Whitest Kids U Know. He went on to work for Comedy Central and direct multiple films. “Making @itrevormoore really laugh always gave me a sense of accomplishment. I’m so lucky I got to spend the last 20 years trying to get good at that,” tweeted long-time Whitest Kids U Know collaborator Sam Brown after hearing news of Moore’s death.

The Whitest Kids U Know skits, which aired from 2006 to 2011, have a spontaneous, early-internet-era charm. In “Sex Robot,” a cardboard-and-tinfoil robot parades down a residential street while techno music plays. And in “Lincoln,” the group reveals that Abraham Lincoln was assassinated not for his political views but because he was persistently heckling other audience members at Ford’s Theater from his presidential box. On July 8, Moore tweeted, “When I die I want the obituary to refer to me as ‘local sexpot.’” Rest in peace Trevor Moore, local sexpot.

You’ll never walk alone By Amelia Delphos

T

his fall, UVA will debut a new app, Rave Guardian, designed to help keep students safe on Grounds. The app is a one-stop shop that allows users to read safety alerts, locate phone numbers for SafeRide, Dean on Call, and CAPS on Call, submit tips to the school’s Just Report It tip line, anonymously text the university police department, and call 911. The app also has a virtual escort feature, where users can invite trusted people to virtually walk with them when they’re walking alone. The Rave Guardian app was developed by a third party and sold to organizations that want to provide safety resources for their people. (Other customers include Cornell and the University of South Carolina.) The app came with an upgrade to UVA’s emergency alert software and costs the school’s emergency management office around $7,800 annually. Downloading the app is not required for students, but it is encouraged. Users will need a virginia.edu email address to log in.

According to Sergeant Ben Rexrode of UPD, the app is anonymous. UPD does not know who is using the app unless the user allows, such as identifying themselves when reporting a tip. Rexrode did clarify that in an emergency situation, the police are able to ping users’ locations, just like when someone calls 911. “We’re not able to gather data off of it, or anything for our personal use or gain,” Rexrode says. “We’re really just trying to offer it to the community for larger community safety.” Student safety is a concern among students, parents, faculty, and staff alike. On June 29, a woman was sexually assaulted after falling off a scooter near the UVA medical center. On July 3, a woman was raped in the area of 14th Street NW and Grady Avenue, a popular residential area for students. Abby Palko, director of the Maxine Platzer Lynn Women’s Center at UVA, says the app looks promising. “I think safety tools that empower students, particularly women, and empower them to feel confident moving across Grounds are important,” she says. “At the Women’s Center, we are huge fans of having multiple options for students,” Palko continues. “The issues that we work

on and engage with students on are really big, complex issues, and there isn’t a onesize-fits-all answer to them.” Palko points out that due to the pandemic, 75 percent of undergraduates this fall will have never completed a full year on Grounds. Many students, women especially, share their locations with others while walking at night, but new underclassmen may not have people they trust enough to track them in Apple’s Find My Friends app or Snapchat Map. The new app’s virtual walk feature could help in those situations. “Something we try to discourage is traveling alone, especially at night,” says Rexrode. “As a student, you’re sometimes just going to be by yourself at night. It’s not realistic to say never walk by yourself.” When asked whether there’s more the Office of Emergency Management and/or UPD could be doing to increase student safety, Palko says that safety is a community issue. She encourages people to think about how they move through the university and city, and how they might contribute to community safety. “It sounds corny but it really is on all of us,” she says.

City will draft ordinance allowing employee unionization Despite support from city firefighters and bus drivers, on Monday Charlottesville City Council unanimously voted not to approve the collective bargaining ordinance proposed in March by Greg Wright of the Charlottesville Professional Firefighters Association. Instead, councilors adopted a resolution allowing City Manager Chip Boyles to draft a new collective bargaining ordinance, as Boyles recommended. “I do not believe that council has sufficient information to make an informed decision about a particular collective bargaining ordinance,” said Boyles at the meeting. “[We] have a number of decisions to make as to what procedures might best fit the city administration and workforce, how many bargaining units may be authorized, and what departments should and could be included.” Boyles suggested the city follow the lead of the City of Alexandria and Loudoun County, which hired consultants and

Charlottesville bus drivers, firefighters, and other city employees will be allowed to form unions. gathered input from labor unions for over half a year before adopting collective bargaining ordinances. Since new state labor laws went into effect in May, Charlottesville Area Transit drivers have been pushing the city to allow them to unionize, primarily to negotiate higher

wages. Firefighters have also asked the city to formally recognize the CPFA as a union. City bus driver Mary Pettis spoke in favor of the unionization efforts during public comment. “I have driven the bus for 35 years in the City of Charlottesville. I’m here to ask that y’all

allow us to have a union, because I feel that it’ll help us get more things that we need,” Pettis said. “I personally had to move from Charlottesville to Waynesboro because I couldn’t afford to live in Charlottesville. I have three jobs because I don’t make enough money just driving the bus.” “I’m a single parent. I’m not the only driver who has had to do these things,” Pettis continued. “I love driving, I love my passengers. I just need more from it financially.” “We just want a seat at the table as the professionals that we are,” said Wright during public comment. “We want to...ensure that there’s always a chance for all city employees to be recognized. Wages and benefits is a huge part of this, but it’s really to have that opportunity to have an open and honest dialogue with city management.” “It shouldn’t take collective bargaining,” said Mayor Nikuyah Walker after hearing Pettis’ comments. “We

should figure out as a city how to take care of people. I fully support it, but it shouldn’t come down to who can organize and who can’t.” Councilor Michael Payne agreed with Boyles’ assessment that the city needed to take enough time to make the ordinance “as powerful as possible,” but emphasized that the city should not take too long to draft it and should look to other unions around the state for a starting point. “Our goal is to have [an ordinance] finalized during this year’s budget cycle and not delay our employees’ right to collective bargaining,” Payne tweeted after the meeting. “Hopefully this will be one small step towards winning even bigger fights: expanding unionization and repealing ‘right-to-work’ in Virginia.” Boyles said he planned to present a timeline to council next month, and get the ordinance drafted in time for the FY23 budget year.—C-VILLE Staff

Susan Bro, photographed during a 2018 memorial for her daughter, Heather Heyer, who was killed on August 12, says she supports the lawsuit to hold Unite the Right organizers accountable.

and during Unite the Right: what the groups were planning to do, how they went about it, and how they celebrated after the fact. “I believe it is so important for the American people to actually hear it and see it… with their own eyes, what really happened,” Kaplan said. Amy Spitalnick, executive director of Integrity First for America, spoke to the consequences the organizers have already faced before the trial. According to Spitalnick, Richard Spencer has called the lawsuit “financially crippling,” and other defendants have faced large financial penalties, jail time, and evidentiary sanctions. Some defendants have even talked about how this lawsuit has deterred them from participating in additional violent acts.

“When we go to trial this fall, we put these extremists on trial before a jury of Virginia residents who will finally hold them accountable,” Spitalnick said. The plaintiffs first filed the lawsuit in October of 2017, shortly after the attacks. The next year, the defendants moved to dismiss the lawsuit, but their motion was denied. “The Court holds the Plaintiffs have plausibly alleged the Defendants formed a conspiracy to commit the racial violence that led to the Plaintiffs’ varied injuries,” wrote Judge Norman K. Moon in an opinion at the time. Most recently, in June of this year, a federal court wrote that Unite the Right organizers had disobeyed a court order to provide evidence. The defendants “chose to withhold such documents because [they were] aware that such documents contained evidence that [they] conspired to plan racially-motivated violence at Unite the Right,” the court found. A theme of the IFA panel was precedence: this trial will set a precedent to deter future individuals and groups from organizing something of this magnitude again. “We will follow you wherever you go,” Kaplan said. “We will bring lawsuits against you and we will make sure that you will never want to do anything like this again, because there will be consequences to it.”

Liners Employment Community Celebration Announcements

August 18 – 24, 2021 c-ville.com

ast Tuesday, Integrity First for America hosted a program to remember August 11 and 12. IFA is a nonprofit and nonpartisan organization that represents the plaintiffs in the upcoming Sines v. Kessler federal lawsuit, where August 11 and 12 victims are suing the organizers and participants of Unite the Right. The trial will take place in October and run for multiple weeks. “A Call to Justice: Four Years After the Charlottesville Attack’’ was a virtual panel to update members of the public about the upcoming lawsuit and pay respect to victims and their families. The program featured community leaders, experts, and other partners involved in the lawsuit. “This was the loss of my baby girl,” said Susan Bro, mother of Heather Heyer, the activist who was killed in the terrorist attack that day. “Those who were injured besides Heather need compensation for ongoing surgeries, ongoing trauma, ongoing difficulties caused by this.” Although Bro is not a plaintiff in Sines v. Kessler, she said she supports the effort to ensure the organizers of Unite the Right are held accountable. She said Unite the Right was a “wake up call” to white America to realize the dangers of white supremacy. “We have much systemic change to make but this trial is definitely a step in the right direction.” “Those memories will undeniably haunt me for the rest of my life,” said Elizabeth Sines, one of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit. Sines, a counterprotester, was in her second year of law school at UVA during the August 11 and 12 attacks. “I will never forget watching them [Nazis] attack my fellow students, or the feeling of running for my life through the streets I had walked with friends and family countless times before.” Sines said she often gets asked why she showed up to counterprotest and why she decided to join the lawsuit. She said the answer to the two questions is the same: “I believe that the organizers of the Unite the Right Rally must be held accountable for the harm they’ve inflicted,” she said. “We’ve seen time and time again that without accountability, the cycle of violence, hatred, and misinformation continues and grows.” Roberta Kaplan, one of the lawyers representing the plaintiffs, talked about the importance of the lawsuit. Kaplan believes the court appearances will allow the American public to learn, for the first time, what really happened leading up to

In the days that followed, Charlottesville actor and director David Vaughn Straughn sat down to write a play. “I felt this anger and intolerance and frustration,” says Straughn. “I knew that was inside of me, and I wanted to find a healthy and constructive outlet to get all of that out.” The shooting came to the attention of Straughn—and the entire nation—because one of Blake’s neighbors filmed the incident on her phone. Earlier that summer, 17-yearold Darnella Frazier captured the world’s attention when she filmed the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Straughn’s new play turns the camera onto those videographers, exploring the life of the fictional Tanesha, a teenage girl whose life is upended after she witnesses and records the murder of an unarmed Black man. “[Frazier] stood there for 10 minutes and had the courage to watch a man die and not walk away, and admit to her affected mental health after this incident,” says Straughn. “The backlash, and the angst, and the hate that she’s received for bringing this to the forefront just speaks to how we treat Black women when they do the right thing.” Straughn’s new play, entitled Tanesha after its central character, explores how the girl and her family grapple with the fallout of her filming. Straughn says the inspiration he felt was so intense that the script took him just four days to finish. When he showed the finished work to his friend Leslie M. ScottJones, artistic director of the Charlottesville Players Guild, the only question she had was how soon she could get it on the stage. “I think this is a conversation that Charlottesville has been having for the past four years now on a grand scale,” says Scott-Jones. “But I also believe that this is a conversation that has been going on in some form or fashion in every Black household in Charlottesville since the beginning.” Straughn has worked as an actor and writer across Virginia and along the East Coast, including in two off-Broadway plays. He considers the CPG, where he was able to influence everything from the script to the lighting to the set design as he directed and starred in his first original production, to be something special. “Good theater is hard to find, and when you do, you stick with the theater house that has the intention of challenging the thought of the community while compensating their actors,” he says. “We are not just volunteer community artists doing a really fun project. We are artists. We are committed to this production.”

contemplating their identities; and Teresa Dowell-Vest’s Vinegar Hill, a bittersweet reflection on Charlottesville’s now-torndown Black neighborhood. In November, the series will conclude with Aiyana Marcus’ She Echoes on the Vine, an examination of a women exploring her identity through memories of her ancestors. Veering among heart-breaking, uplifting, and rage-inducing, these productions have captured the attention of people across Charlottesville by grappling with poignant issues of race from a Black perspective. “What I want people to take away from [Tanesha] is that police brutality, and the pervasive violence towards people of color, is not only harmful to people of color,” says Straughn. “It’s harmful to everyone in America.” Scott-Jones hopes to continue including at least one original title from a Charlottesville writer in each of CPG’s upcoming seasons, in addition to providing other opportunities for local Black creatives. The CPG is partnering with the Hamner Theater and Four County Players, two organizations Scott-Jones describes as working to produce actively anti-racist theater, for a September production of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing that will help recoup some of the theaters’ recent financial losses. This multi-theater production marks CPG’s substantial growth since 2017. Its plays resonated with a community still wrestling with the violence that shook Charlottesville that August. Tanesha, which will run from August 19 to 22, will premiere to both a limited crowd of season-ticket holders and also a wider audience via general admission livestream. “This is not just a play about Black men dying,” says Straughn. “It’s a play about people dying, and people dying unjustly.”

August 18 – 24, 2021 c-ville.com

In recent years, the CPG has been the nucleus of Charlottesville’s Black theater community, regularly performing at the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center. This iteration of the Guild opened its first play, August Wilson’s Fences, in April 2017. “When someone says ‘theater,’ automatically people think ‘white theater,’” Scott-Jones says. “This is why we have to quantify this is Black theater, from a Black perspective.” Three years later, as pandemic-related shutdowns rippled across Virginia, it became clear that even well-established Broadway scripts wouldn’t be enough to guarantee a profitable season for the group. While other local theaters were forced to cut back their lineups, ScottJones decided to turn financial void into creative opportunity, with one of CPG’s busiest seasons ever. The 2021 lineup provided a metaphorical megaphone for the Black voices of Charlottesville by showcasing original productions. “It’s really hard for a Black playwright, especially in this area, to have their work produced, to have it put on its feet in front of an audience and get feedback,” says Scott-Jones. “Because we’re in a small market, community theaters can’t really make the choice to produce a whole lot of independent work, because they have to keep the lights on. So this was the perfect opportunity to be able to showcase these writers and their work.” The 2021 season, called Amplify, began in March with shows written and produced by local playwrights. These have included Scott-Jones’ Thirty-Seven, in which an eighth-grader considers what it means to become an activist; Ti Ames’ See About the Girls, a companion to Amiri Baraka’s 1964 The Slave, which focuses on bi-racial sisters

Fresh eyes The Bridge offers a new perspective on traditional Haitian art

PVCC4U. 100%!

hen Haitian American art collector and curator Jeanremi Verella first encountered the Sen Soley art collective during a residency in Port-Au-Prince, he knew he had to bring the artists to America. But he quickly learned that strict visa quotas made this nearly impossible. So he brought their artwork instead. Sen Soley is a Haitian art collective that includes artists Mackenley Darius, Anthony Martial, Richard Nesly, and Erivaux Prospere. It takes its name from the patois spelling of Saint Soleil, a Haitian art movement founded in 1973, and revives the stylized human and animal forms and Haitian Vodou symbolism that was the focus of the earlier group. Haitian Vodou is a religion that fuses the West African Vodun religion with Roman Catholicism. For Saint Soleil and Sen Soley alike, visual art represents a synthesis of mind, body, and nature. These artists look to their rural roots and the Haitian traditions of storytelling, music, writing, and religion, as well as dreams and visions for their inspiration. Verella, who attended UVA, spent time learning about the artists in Haiti, and has now helped organize an exhibition at The Bridge Progressive Arts Initiative. “Eyes on Sen Soley” is open until September 30.

“It’s been such a humbling journey of living with the artwork and getting to unfold it at a different location and look at it with people.” JEANREMI VERELLA

Haiti is in the midst of a tumultuous period. “There’ve been natural disasters, and political tension, again and again,” says Verella. Earlier this year, the country’s president was assassinated, and this week an earthquake killed more than 1,200 people. “With everything that’s happening in Haiti right now, it feels really valuable to offer something beyond the headlines,” says Alan Goffinski, executive director of the BPAI. Verella still hopes to find a city or organization willing to sponsor the artists. This would enable them to get their visas, interact with other artists, and expose their work to a wider audience. “It’s been such a humbling journey of living with the artwork and getting to unfold it at a different location and look at it with people,” says Verella. The work is characterized by bold color and design with a surface that is kept flat with no illusion of depth. This jibes with the paintings’ role as symbolic entities depicting spiritual matters, rather than realistic vignettes of the physical world.

“Eyes on Sen Soley,” featuring work by Mackenley Darius, Anthony Martial, Richard Nesly, and Erivaux Prospere, is on view by appointment at The Bridge through September 30.

Alicia Walsh-Noel went from bussing tables to creating a buzz for local restaurants with her marketing agency Do Me A Flavor.

Now serving Go-getter foodie launches her own culinary marketing business By Caite Hamilton living@c-ville.com

Wilson Richey was my first client. When I pitched the idea of running marketing for his group, Ten Course Hospitality, he said yes before I could finish my first sentence. I also work with F&B Restaurant Management, whose family members are Ivy Provisions, Shadwell’s, and Fry’s Spring Station. This year, we collaborated with both Crozet Pizzas and the Dairy Market on several projects. We’ve been experimenting with retail lately as well, throwing around ideas for independently owned grocery stores or specialty food shops. What do you like to eat in Charlottesville?

What types of services does Do Me A Flavor provide?

@cville_culture

licia Walsh-Noel is no stranger to a career pivot. Seven years ago, she left her cubicle job to start as a busser at Zocalo. And in 2018, while working at Brasserie Saison, she approached Will Richey with an offer to run the marketing for his restaurant group. “My background is a potpourri of photography, communications, and food and beverage,” she says. “But more importantly, I have a background in being scrappy AF.” Richey said yes, and in June 2019, after the birth of her son and increasing requests to take more clients, Walsh-Noel launched Do Me A Flavor, a local food-focused marketing agency. We asked her to tell us more about her restaurant cred and what local menus she’s pouring over—in and out of the office.

The exception to this is the work by Mackenley Darius, which has three-dimensional volume. “His style kind of branches out of the Sen Soley movement,” says Verella. “He does ethnography of Haiti and I think this gives him additional perspective, enabling him to blend the ideas of Sen Soley into his artwork.” The stunning portrait of Haitian American art superstar Jean-Michel Basquiat (“Honor to My King”), who gazes soulfully from the canvas, is his. Basquiat incorporated Vodou images in his work. Here, Darius not only captures Basquiat, but he does so while emulating his subject’s distinctive style. Richard Nesly’s paintings have the allover rhythm of a frieze or piece of fabric. He reduces the palette to one or two colors to showcase the pattern that undulates across the work. Human, animal, and plant forms ooze out to form other entities, or flow into one another to suggest the interconnectedness of all things. In some pieces, these take on the appearance of a serpent, an important Vodou symbol. Smack dab in the middle of Nesly’s “Nids Dé Zwazo,” you can see a Vodou symbol called a vèvè. An important part of Vodou ceremonies, vèvès are “drawn” on the ground using corn meal, flour, or some other powdery material. The vèvès are ritualistically destroyed during the ceremony when congregants dance across them, scattering the powder. Vèvès also appear in other works in the show. Looking around the room, and perhaps with the exhibition’s title in mind, one is struck by the number of eyes that stare back at you. Prospere’s “Untitled 1” and “Untitled 2” feature densely packed ribbons of richly hued paint, that at first appear to be completely abstract, before you notice the eyes and mouths emerging from the ornate bands of color, and the suggestion of a figure. Are these intended as representations of otherworldly presences observing us from another dimension? The eyes are also remarkable in Nesly’s “Lé Ancien,” adding a punch of energy to this striking work. Nesly creates enormous visual excitement through the interplay of pattern, figures, and color. Though Nesly’s work is highly stylized, the figures are individualized with characteristics and features that give us the impression of real people. Anthony Martial’s work seems the most serious, perhaps because it is rendered in black and white. His figures of humans and birds are simple, but his works have a complexity and power, thanks to his compositional arrangements and sophisticated surface patterns. When dealing with Haiti, it’s natural to focus on the suffering endured by the Haitian people, whether at the hands of Mother Nature or corrupt politicians. But “Eyes on Sen Soley” shows another side of Haiti, and in Goffinski’s words, “presents some humanizing culture so we can appreciate the Haitian people as people, and these artists as individuals.” The paintings in the exhibition are all for sale as are prints of them. All proceeds directly support the artists.

By Rob Brezsny

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Author Katherine Mansfield once told her friend Virginia Woolf, “You put me in touch with my own soul.” I’m sorry Mansfield didn’t previously have that precious connection, but I’m elated that Woolf helped her make it. In the coming weeks, I expect you will encounter an abundance of influences like Woolf: people and animals and places and experiences that can bring you into more intimate contact with your soul. I hope you take full advantage.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct.22): At the age of 70, Libran novelist Magda Szabó mused, “I know now, what I didn’t then, that affection can’t always be expressed in calm, orderly, articulate ways; and that one cannot prescribe the form it should take for anyone else.” In that spirit, Libra, and in accordance with astrological omens, I authorize you to express affection in lively, unruly, demonstrative ways. Give yourself permission to be playfully imaginative, exuberantly revelatory, and vivaciously animated as you show the people and animals you cherish the nature of your feelings for them.

Scorpio

August 18 – 24, 2021 c-ville.com

facebook.com/cville.weekly

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Do you Scorpios lie to yourselves more than the other signs lie to themselves? Are you especially prone to undermine yourselves through self-deception? I don’t think so. However, you might be among the signs most likely to mislead or beguile other people. (But here’s a caveat: On some occasions, your trickery is in a good cause, because it serves the needs of the many, not just yourself.) In any case, dear Scorpio, I will ask you to minimize all such behavior during the next five weeks. I think your success will depend on you being exceptionally honest and genuine—both to yourself and to others.

CULTURE FREE WILL ASTROLOGY

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): “If we wait until we are ready, we will be waiting for the rest of our lives,” declared novelist Lemony Snicket. This is good advice for you to heed right now. I really hope you avoid the temptation to wait around for the perfect moment before you begin. In my vision of your best approach, you will dive into the future without trying to have all your plans finalized and all your assets gathered. I expect you will acquire the rest of what you need once the process is underway. ing down. Think of it as a reward for the brave work you’ve been doing lately. Enjoy this chocolatey grace period!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Abraham Joshua Heschel was a Jewish theologian born under the sign of Capricorn. He wrote, “Indifference to the sublime wonder of living is the root of sin.” That’s a different definition of sin from what we’re used to! To be a moral person, Heschel believed, you must be in “radical amazement” about the glories of creation. I hope you will cultivate such an attitude in the coming weeks, Capricorn. It would be a mistake for you to numbly take things for granted. I dare you to cultivate as much awe, reverence, and adoration as you can muster.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A blogger who calls herself Hopeful Melancholy wrote a message to her lover. She said, “My favorite sexual position is the one where you work on your paintings and I work on my book, but we’re in the same room and occasionally smile at each other.” You might want to consider trying experiments comparable to that one in the coming weeks, Aquarius. The time will be fertile for you and your dear allies to work side-by-side; to cheer each other on and lift each other up; to explore new ways of cultivating companionship and caring for each other.

Sagittarius

Pisces

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “I like being broken,” says Sagittarius actor Jamie Campbell Bower. “It means I can have chocolate for breakfast.” I guess that when he feels down, he gives himself special permission to enjoy extra treats and privileges. According to my assessment of the astrological omens, you now have the right to give yourself similar permission—even though I don’t expect you’ll be broken or feel-

(Feb. 19-March 20): Dick Dudley was a 17th-century swindler. Among his many victims was the Pope. Dudley offered an item for sale that he claimed was a divine relic: a piece of the beard of St. Peter, founder of the Roman Catholic Church. The Pope paid Dudley a small fortune for the treasure, and kissed it copiously. Only later did the full story emerge: The so-called beard was in

fact a sex worker’s pubic wig. I hope you don’t get involved in switcheroos like that anytime soon, Pisces. Make sure that the goods or services you’re receiving—and offering, for that matter—are exactly what they’re supposed to be.

Aries (March 21-April 19): A blogger who calls herself TheSaddestChorusGirlInTheWorld writes, “Having sex with someone is a big deal and involves a ton of vulnerability. And I think it’s troubling and gross and unhealthy and, yes, dangerous that we pretend otherwise and encourage people to ‘be mature’ by compartmentalizing or completely eliminating their deeper emotions from their sexuality. And even worse, any other view is dismissed as prudish and invalid and unenlightened and restrictive.” You may agree with everything TheSaddestChorusGirl says here. But if you haven’t arrived at her conclusions, now is a good time to meditate on them. Why? Because your assignment in the coming weeks is to deepen and refine your relationship with your sexuality. Be extra reverent about your sensual longings. Ensure that your erotic activities serve your highest ideals and noblest goals.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): The popular American TV sitcom “30 Rock” produced 138 episodes in seven seasons. At the height of its success, it crammed an average of 9.57 jokes into every minute. Its comic richness derived in large part from multi-talented Taurus star Tina Fey, who created the show and played one of its main characters. She was also a writer and executive producer. I propose we make her your role model in the coming weeks. According to my projections, you’re entering a charismatic, ebullient, and creative phase of your astrological cycle. It’s time to be generous to the parts

of your life that need big happy doses of release and liberation.

Gemini (May 21-June 20): I got an email from a Gemini reader named Jaylah. She wrote, “Hi, not sure if you remember me, but in our past lives, you and I used to write sacred cuneiform texts on clay tablets while sitting across from each other in a cave in Mesopotamia 4,910 years ago. Your name was Nabu. Mine was Tashmetu. I was always a little jealous because you earned more money than I, but it didn’t get in the way of our friendship. Anyway, if you ever want to catch up about the old days, give me a holler.” I loved receiving this inquiry from a soul I may have known in a previous incarnation. And what she did by reaching out to me happens to be the perfect type of activity for you Geminis right now. Secrets of your history may be more available than usual. The past may have new stories to tell. A resource from yesteryear could prove valuable in the future.

Cancer (June 21-July 22): Cancerian-born Franz Kafka was an interesting writer and a master of language. But even for him, it could be a challenge to convey what he really meant. He said, “I am constantly trying to communicate something incommunicable, to explain something inexplicable, to tell about something I only feel in my bones and which can only be experienced in those bones.” Now here’s the good news, as far as you’re concerned, Cancerian: I suspect that in the coming weeks, you will have more power than usual to do exactly what Kafka aspired to do. You will be able to summon extra ease and grace in expressing your truths. I invite you to be a connoisseur of deep conversations.

NEWS & VIEWS

Recently Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville celebrated two families purchasing affordable homes on 12th Street NW. The dedication ceremony honored the partner families’ completion of Habitat’s Homeownership Program including homebuyer education, financial counseling, and hundreds of hours of sweat equity in preparation for the purchase of their new Habitat homes. Both Anderson and Jackson, the two mothers purchasing the Habitat homes, are graduates of Habitat’s Pathways to Housing Program. Families in the Pathways program often struggle with debt, credit issues, and low wages, but have the drive and potential to achieve their goals. Through one-onone financial coaching, homeowner education classes, and monthly group meetings with their cohort, Pathways to Housing families work diligently toward graduation. Upon graduation, families are able to purchase a home through Habitat or, if they choose and qualify, on the private market. “The Pathways program helps partner families find innovative, creative solutions to their specific financial and housing challenges. We work with low-wealth and debt-burdened families to help them achieve economic stabil-

ity and self-sufficiency and put them on the path to homeownership—be it Habitat homeownership or otherwise,” says Janette Kawachi, Habitat’s Chief Partnership Officer. By investing in families that otherwise would not qualify for homeownership, Habitat is committed to providing wealth building opportunities for Charlottesville families who have no other pathway to home equity. In areas of town that are facing the pressures of gentrification, like the 10th and Page neighborhood, Habitat focuses on families from the neighborhood and the Charlottesville community to allow them to move up without moving out. “These homes and the work of these wonderful families demonstrates that you can reinvest in neighborhoods without displacing the people and the bonds that make communities great,” said Dan Rosensweig, Habitat’s CEO and President. About Habitat: 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, mixed-income communities, where local families can achieve their dreams of homeownership. Since our founding in 1991, we have built 225 new homes and safely housed 2,000 neighbors, thanks to the commitment and dedication of our thousands of volunteers and supporters.

t rises directly east of Charlottesville, right across the Rivanna River, once a major trading route. Thomas Jefferson’s family once owned the land, and he coined the name, incorporating the Greek prefix “pan” (all) to allude to the panoptic view from the top. But you don’t need to stand on TJ’s own patch of Pantops for a heartlifting view. Just drive down Route 250 heading into town—and “down” is the direction you’ll be heading—and you’re bound to smile at the beautiful sight of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Now imagine doing that every day as you go to or from work. Imagine you lived on Pantops. You’d have fast access to Route 64 and points east and west. You’d have shops, restaurants, and medical facilities aplenty to choose from, and you’d have the Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Speech and the Kluge-Ruhe Art Museum for classy institutional neighbors. You’d likely have pool privileges.

“The location seems to really resonate with homebuyers,” says Simone Alley of Howard Hannah Real Estate Services. “I would say that that’s the key: the sheer convenience of being close to everything, and the ease of getting to the interstate and of getting to the downtown area. A lot of folks love the fact that Darden Towe Park is there; and new restaurants have been coming in.”

Pizza, Mexican food, “anything you’d want in that area” you can find, Alley says. “That’s been very attractive for a lot of families.” She loves the new, locally-sourced burgers, pizza, and more American fare place called Riverbirch, owned and operated by Charlottesville transplants Joan and Kenny Mady, and named after the sturdy riverbirch tree. A comfortablysized, popular and locally owned Grit Coffee serves java, espresso, tea and baked goods. Tropical Smoothie offers wraps, sandwiches, flatbreads and salads along with dozens of smoothie options. Sticks

Kabob Shop has Mediterranean skewers. The Lazy Parrot “is always packed after work,” probably because “they have great wings.” Half the fun in getting to know a region’s cuisine is reading the enticingly named dishes on the menu. At Mi Casita Salvadorian Restaurant, open early to late, are Salvadoran-Honduran breakfasts, pupusas, baleadas, Carne Asada, Pollo con Tajadas, and Yuca con Chicharron. Shadwell’s, an old Pantops standby, serves fresh and creative Southern comfort food—fried oyster burgers! Pimento cheesesteak eggrolls!—plus beer, wine, cocktails. Another beloved Pantops eatery is Tip Top Restaurant, a lovely diner—check out the old-fashioned blackand-white checked tile floor and service counter in the front room—serving breakfast all day, plus subs, pasta, pizza, pitas and other Greek specialties, and much (much, much) more. But the oldest restaurant around, established in 1935, back when a workingman didn’t mess around with hummus and would have eyed smoothies with disdain and

suspicion, is Riverside Lunch, still by many accounts the best greasy burgers and fries joint in the city.

Easy Shopping, Easy Getting Around The main Pantops artery, Route 250 (Richmond Road), scoots right into Charlottesville heading west, with exits onto East High Street, McIntire Road, and Route 29 North among others. Charlottesville Area Transit buses run to, through and from Pantops via several routes, making for quick trips downtown. Pantops is also close to Charlottesville’s Amtrak and Greyhound stations, and is only 11 miles from CharlottesvilleAlbemarle Airport, with connections to Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago, New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. It is a convenient place to shop as well. Pantops Shopping Center has over 30 retail stores, professional service providers, and restaurants—from Food Lion, H&R Block, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Jiffy Lube, and Rudy’s Cleaners to Mountain Kim Martial Arts Academy, Animal Medical Center, and Pantops Pet Salon.


Unlike many other desirable spots, Pantops has fantastic medical facilities. Award-winning Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital’s website lists services literally from A to Z, including cancer, maternity, imaging, weight loss surgery, heart and vascular, orthopedics, and home care. An outpatient center serves cancer patients. What’s more, the facilities are attractive and inviting, with art on the walls and lovely country views out the windows. UVA Health’s Primary and Specialty Care Clinic on the lushly landscaped Peter Jefferson Parkway offers a wide range of services. These include treatment of acute and chronic illness; health promotion and prevention of illness; wellness visits for adults and children; women’s health services, including prenatal care; assessments and lab tests; acupuncture; mindfulness-based stress reduction; medical yoga therapy; and cancer survivor support.

cases before the U.S. Supreme Court and sometimes lower federal courts. The Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection is the only museum outside of Australia dedicated to the exhibition and study of Indigenous Australian art. The museum comprises five galleries, an interactive activity space, a library, a classroom, five offices and three art storage facilities, all on the ground floor and basement of a lovely, colonial revival style house completed in 1938.

Pantops Area Real Estate Most Pantops homes—single-family detached homes, townhouses and apartments with Colonial architectural features—are located on and around Richmond Road/250. Many enjoy panoramic views of the Rivanna River or Pantops Mountain. “I’m seeing more young families coming into that area,” Alley says, noting its “immense amount of condos.” The

relatively new Pavilions at Pantops development includes modern row houses and townhomes with large lawns. One of the oldest developments in the area is Fontana, with its 160 existing homes and an additional 34 still to be built. Located on Route 20, a half a mile north of its intersection with Route 250, Fontana enjoys views of Darden Towe Park, the Blue Ridge Mountains, and Monticello, along with Browns Mountain, and the Carter’s Mountain range to the south. The Hyland Park section of Fontana features quarter-acre elevated home sites. “I’ve had several clients in Hyland Park at Fontana. I had some older clients go in there because they really liked the proximity to Martha Jefferson but were able to buy a house with mostly one-level living. They really liked the way it was laid out, sort of tucked away back there. On rolling terrain behind Fontana is Hyland Ridge, where each home sits on roughly half an acre. Homeowners in all these neighborhoods enjoy amenities like a clubhouse, exercise room, pool, trails, basketball and tennis courts, and a playground. “There are so many entrances to the Rivanna Trail in that area,” Alley says. Another booming community, Cascadia, a mixture of attached and detached homes, is right across from Darden Towe Park. “Cascadia had three developers,” Alley says, “Ryan Homes, Southern, and Craig Builders, and it built out quickly. In addition to retirees and second home owners, “quite a few families settle there because they find they can be in Albemarle County but still close to town. They like the schools, and they like the convenience to anything you need—groceries, shopping, hospitals, doctors, parks. There is walkability back there, especially with the park. The river is there so you can kayak and canoe, and then there is the Rivanna Trail. “I had another couple who were retirees who bought in Cascadia (as well) to be close to the younger family they had in the area. So, proximity again, but the proximity to the hospital was important to them as well.” Retirees can also choose from several handsome appointed retirement communities on Pantops, including Westminster Canterbury and Commonwealth Senior Living. One of the oldest and most established communities in the area, Key West, is close by Pantops, Alley notes: “It’s a really cool community. Everything is different there. You have a lot of space around you—most lots are half an acre. In fact, Key West is a mere mile or so from Pantops, just off lovely Route 20, which runs through Albemarle County countryside. Community members love to gather at the Key West Club for swimming, tennis, and social activities. The homes there enjoy privacy, are surrounded by trees, and are close to Rivanna River walking paths. Views and chews, and stores, banks, and all the rest that help grow a community—Pantops boasts them all, and more keep coming—and so do the people. Look around. You might want to join them.

FEATURE

Pantops homeowners are also close to lovely Darden Towe Memorial Park, with its playgrounds, dog run, ball fields, and canoeing facilities. This 113-acre space, open from 7:00 a.m. to dark all year round, holds one Little League baseball field, three softball fields, four multi-purpose fields, four tennis courts, horseshoe pits, a grass volleyball court, and 3.8 miles of trails. A boat launch affords access to the Rivanna River, and a one-acre dog park is fenced in so that dogs can run free. The playground is wheelchair-accessible, and the picnic shelters are reservable and have electrical outlets and open charcoal grills. The park is also home to the Lewis & Clark Exploratory Center, a hands-on center focusing on the historic expedition led by Meriwether Lewis from 1804 to 1806, which educates visitors about history, exploration, transportation, the arts, science, the natural environment, and native cultures. “We acknowledge the Monacan Nation,” the Center’s mission statement says, “who lived on the land where the Lewis & Clark Exploratory Center now stands. We also seek to listen to native peoples about the Lewis and Clark Expedition and its impact, as we travel along the trail of the Expedition often hosted by tribes of the areas, learning more to convey to our visitors in Charlottesville.” Currently the Lewis & Clark Exploratory Center is offering both virtual and on-site programs. Carpentry, photography, and other arts and crafts projects for kids and adults center on the explorer’s own maps, drawings, and written accounts. Completed projects are put on exhibition and have included boatbuilding and 3-D mapmaking. The socially-distanced “Introduction to Nature Journaling and a Hike” teaches the art of keeping a journal, while focusing on Lewis and Clark’s own writings and what Thomas Jefferson hoped to learn when he commissioned their expedition. All ages are welcome. Not much further away, off East Rio Road on Pen Park Road is Pen Park. At

280 acres it is the largest park in the City of Charlottesville. Named more than 200 years ago, its excellent recreation and leisure facilities include the 18-hole Meadowcreek Golf Course with clubhouse and pro shop, and an outdoor physical fitness course with 10 exercise stations along a nature trail winding toward the Rivanna River. At its end is another 1.5-mile trail along the Rivanna River. Leashed dogs are allowed in the park, but not on the golf course. Today the University of Virginia owns a portion of the land that once belonged to the Jefferson family and is home to two institutions that would be a credit to any area. Founded in 1990 and previously directed by Robert M. O’Neil, a former president of the University of Virginia, the Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expression is a nonprofit organization that regularly files amicus briefs in First Amendment
