THIS WEEK Charlottesville let Police Chief RaShall Brackney go last week. Whatever your opinions of Brackney’s tenure as chief, one thing is for sure: She was given a tough assignment, and whoever takes over the department will have a tough assignment, too. The police chief in a town like Charlottesville has to juggle two extremely different constituencies. On the one hand, the chief should be answerable to a liberal-to-progressive town population in which almost everyone votes Democrat and some people would like to see the department defunded entirely. (The chief also has to work with City Council members, who are elected by these citizens.) At at the same time, the chief has to marshal the officer corps. An anonymous survey of officers published last month hints at just how different they are from the average Charlottesville citizen. “The Commonwealth Attorney and his office is spineless and pitifully soft on crime,” one officer wrote. “The Chief and Command Staff base too many of their decisions off of the possible public opinion, and how their decisions will be viewed in the media,” complained another. Is it possible to bring these two constituencies—the people, and the officers who are supposed to protect those people—into a productive relationship? I genuinely don’t know, but I know that whoever fills Chief Brackney’s shoes will have plenty to do from the very first day.—Ben Hitchcock

IN BRIEF

Planning commission hears (lots of) zoning comments Debate continues around the city’s new Comprehensive Plan and subsequent zoning overhaul. Last week’s Planning Commission meeting lasted for more than five hours, with dozens of speakers tuning in to offer their opinions on the map. Some, especially those who live in neighborhoods currently zoned for single-family housing only, have advocated for the continued existence of singlefamily-only neighborhoods. Others want increased housing density throughout the city, and especially in neighborhoods where dense development isn’t currently allowed. Watch this space for updates as the process continues.

A customer was shot at Boylan Heights in the early hours of Saturday morning when a bullet was accidentally discharged and went through the wall of one bathroom to another. The female victim, who was hit in the arm, is in stable condition, reports a UVA community alert, and an arrest has been made.

Richard Spencer

Richard Spencer, the white nationalist UVA alum who played a key role in the 2017 Unite the Right rally, isn’t doing so well these days, according to a New York Times report published over the weekend. The Times story says that Spencer “is now an outcast” in his Whitefish, Montana, home, that his organization has fallen apart, and that he can’t pay for a lawyer for his upcoming appearance in the trial over Unite the Right. “Richard Spencer wanted [Whitefish] to be his happy vacation place where he could play and have fun, and people would just live and let live,” area Rabbi Francine Green Roston told the Times. “Then he started suffering social consequences for his hatred.”

At press time, the statue of Robert E. Lee in downtown Richmond still stands—but that won’t be the case for long, as the statue is slated to come down on Wednesday, September 8. Last summer, Governor Ralph Northam ordered the statue’s removal, and a recent Virginia Supreme Court ruling confirmed that the state does in fact have a legal right to take the monument down. The city will have to chop the statue up on the spot in order to haul away the 60-foot-tall monstrosity. There are no plans to remove Lee’s stone pedestal, which is still covered in graffiti from last summers’ protests. The area around the statue, informally known as Marcus-David Peters Circle, in honor of a Black biology teacher who was killed by Richmond police, will remain a community gathering space.

Dr. Royal Gurley will begin as CCS superintendent on October 4.

His other priorities include ensuring that the division’s gifted programs and advanced courses adequately reflect the student body, and properly preparing students for graduation and beyond. Gurley also plans to continue the equity work he began in Dinwiddie. “We need to make sure that we’re not creating any barriers for our students,” he says. “But also, when we talk about equity, what are we doing to move the needle for our students? Are we providing our students with opportunities they need in order to be successful?” In the coming weeks, Gurley said he will get to know the community by visiting schools, attending fine arts events, and cheering on the Charlottesville High School sports teams. “I am a big football fan. I’m going to be at every home game. I pop in at all the basketball games,” said Gurley, who will soon move to Charlottesville with his husband, Derrek, and their labradoodle, Cooper. “That’s my outlet—it’s my way to still be at work, but not at work.” “I’m very approachable,” he added. “I don’t always sit at the same place when I’m at the football games. I like to be among our families.” “I just want to get to know people [and their] experiences, so we do not replicate things that have not been favorable for people,” said Gurley. “We can write a new history.”

Wanna Wardak is president of the UVA Afghan Student Association.

There’s a whole bunch of news you’re missing! Follow @cville_weekly, and @cville_culture to get the latest scoop on what’s going down in Charlottesville.

facebook.com/cville.weekly

At the University of Virginia, the Afghan Student Association has hosted two rallies on Grounds to raise awareness about the crisis in Afghanistan, and organized social media campaigns to educate people on ways to support refugees. In addition, the group has been working with fellow student group Muslims United to collect donations and provide assistance with translation. “We’ve been trying to keep in contact with [the families], meet them, and let them know they have people in the community and UVA students they can count on who have access to a lot of resources here,” says fourth-year student Wanna Wardak, president of the ASA.

UVA’s Muslim Students Association has also been supporting ASA’s protests, and providing donations to the Islamic Society of Central Virginia and Muslims United. It plans to soon host its own supply drive for local refugee families, says president Shahira Ali, a fourth-year student. In addition to providing donations, Kuhr encourages community members to get involved in advocacy work by urging their senators and representatives to support progressive immigration legislation, which may make it easier for immigrants and refugees to come to the U.S., and bring their families with them. “Picking up the phone and calling your congressman still has power,” Kuhr says. Wardak and Ali stress the importance of listening to and rallying around Afghan voices at this critical time. “We always need to be asking refugees directly what they need,” says Ali. “They are the ones who need the support and the aid.” “We just want people to care,” Wardak says. “People are desensitized to what’s happening in Afghanistan because it’s been 20 years of conflict with the U.S., and 40 years of non-stop war and terror.” That constant drumbeat of news can obscure the human cost of the conflict, Wardak says. “We have real people, here in Charlottesville, who do need help, and have had no choice in what’s been happening in their lives.”

Protesters downtown urge Charlottesville to open its arms to Afghan refugees.

September 8 – 14, 2021 c-ville.com

ince the Taliban seized control of Afghanistan a few weeks ago, more than 100,000 Afghans have fled the country, fearing for their lives. Many are currently going through strict immigration and security screening in other countries, like Qatar and Bahrain, but thousands who are further along in their applications for Special Immigrant Visas—which allow interpreters, translators, and others who aided U.S. forces to become permanent residents—have been permitted to enter the U.S., and go through processing at military bases across the country. According to the local International Rescue Committee, a dozen Afghan families have taken refuge in Charlottesville. However, the agency expects to welcome up to 250 Afghan evacuees in the coming weeks. “Several families had their visas issued already, so they were able to get on the last commercial flights out, walk into our agency, and ask for services,” says Charlottesville IRC Executive Director Harriet Kuhr. “We thought we were going to get a lot like that, but the commercial service got cut off so fast...so a lot of people who would have done that ended up on the early evacuation flights.” Though the other SIV families who have arrived in Charlottesville were only on a military base for a few days, “the people who are eligible for [SIVs], or maybe started their applications and aren’t very far along, they’re going to be on these bases for several weeks until their processing is completed,” Kuhr says. “There’s been this big empty space in between waiting for the next wave.” Over the past few weeks, the IRC has received a large amount of in-kind donations from the community, as well as financial support. The agency plans to reach out to community groups soon to find sponsors for individual Afghan families in Charlottesville. “It’s just so heartwarming to see the people throughout the community reaching out, and how much they want to help,” says Kuhr. “It says a lot about Charlottesville as a welcoming community.” “We’re trying to figure out what we still need more of,” she adds. “The best place for people to look is at our webpage...We’ll be posting updates on what we do and don’t need.” International Neighbors, another local refugee resettlement group, has also been active in helping families as they arrive. The group reports that 200 locals have reached out to assist with completing paperwork that will help bring Afghan families across safely. They’re still looking for people to donate money and time to help with the resettlement efforts.

officers who Brackney herself had hired began to leave. “I’ve been generally quite impressed with the folks who have been hired,” Snook says. “The problem is that most of the folks who I was impressed with didn’t stay.” Mayor Nikuyah Walker, who had spoken favorably of Brackney throughout her stint as chief, disagreed with the firing. “The City of Charlottesville publicly eviscerated Dr. RaShall Brackney to protect police officers who are fighting the internal reforms she’s implementing,” Walker wrote on Facebook after Brackney’s dismissal. “I supported Dr. Brackney because she is as committed to breaking down these racist systems as I am,” Walker wrote in a separate post. “I’m saddened because little Black girls everywhere are looking at this and learning what happens when you risk everything to tell the truth.” Shortly after the news broke, Walker posted a four-page memo that Brackney had shared with councilors in early August, which goes into further detail on the type

of behavior that was common in the police department. Officers let their children fire police weapons and detonate explosives, swapped pornographic images and racist jokes on department cell phones, and shotgunned Bang energy drinks before their shift on the anniversary of August 12, the memo reveals. SWAT team recruits “were frequently subjected to humiliating comments regarding their skin tones and ethnicity, as well as stereotypical references to an African American recruit eating chicken,” it reads. The document also includes a transcript of a text exchange between three officers, in which one high-ranking department member brags

harlottesville Police Chief RaShall Brackney is on the outs—City Manager Chip Boyles terminated her contract last Wednesday evening. Brackney, the first Black woman to hold the job, had been at the head of the department since June 2018. A recent survey of police officers indicated that the rank-and-file had lost trust in Brackney, but other newly public documents give numerous examples of misconduct within the department and detail Brackney’s efforts to turn things around. Seven officers have been terminated for bad behavior since Brackney took charge. The city initially announced Brackney’s firing in a brief press release on Wednesday evening, and then elaborated on the decision in another release on Friday. The city manager’s team declined to speak directly to C-VILLE about the termination. “I fully supported the difficult personnel decisions made recently by Chief Brackney,” said Boyles’ statement. “However, in order to dismantle systemic racism and eliminate police violence and misconduct in Charlottesville, we need a leader who is not only knowledgeable in that work, but also is effective [at] building collaborative relationships with the community, the department, and the team at City Hall.” Councilor Lloyd Snook, the only city councilor who could be reached for comment, echoes Boyles’ concerns about Brackney’s ability to build consensus. “When Chief Brackney came, she very early on ruffled a lot of feathers among the good old boys network,” Snook says. “That didn’t bother me. There were a lot of people who had been in the job too long or had brought an unhelpful attitude.” But Snook says he became concerned when reports surfaced that department morale had reached an all-time low, and when

that he “just threw the boys into the octagon at the house and told them to fight for my amusement…winner got ice cream. Loser got to watch the winner eat the ice cream…I’m breeding next gen savages!…I want them both fucking the prom queen one day.” As a result of these incidents, the SWAT team was disbanded, one officer was fired, and two more resigned. Those personnel moves were among the decisions that had irritated the department’s officer corps— some officers complained about the departures of their colleagues in an anonymous survey released two weeks ago. On the other side, some police reform activists expressed mixed opinions about Brackney’s firing. “While the Chief was not particularly in favor of community oversight, the City’s firing her for trying to change police culture is a step in the wrong direction,” reads a statement from the People’s Coalition, a police oversight advocacy group. “I’ve never been able to understand, or get a clear answer, as to why there was the development of a Civilian Review Board here,” Brackney said in a 2019 interview with C-VILLE. Snook says he understands the gravity of letting the department’s first Black woman police chief go, and that he’s heard from some in the community that “by firing Chief Brackney you’re allowing the racists in the police department to win.” “All I can say is right now, what’s clear is that Charlottesville is losing,” the councilor says, “and we need to figure out a better way to do this.” Brackney will be paid a lump sum equal to 12 months of her $160,000 salary. Charlottesville has made a habit of paying large severance packages to outgoing officials: Last year, former city manager Tarron Richardson took a check for $205,000 with him on his way out the door. Assistant Police Chief James Mooney will take over while the department conducts a national search for a new chief.

None better The talent of Terry Martin remembered by the local music community By Julia Stumbaugh

Originating in the late ’80s from Charlottesville High School’s pep band, the disbanded Ebony Groove started discussing a potential reunion in 2008—but it wasn’t until 2018, when Orr mentioned it to Martin in passing, that Martin made it happen. He arranged a gig at IX, then stood behind the mixing board as hundreds packed the audience for Ebony Groove’s Alumni Weekend concert. “Their very first show, that just blew minds, man,” says Falsini. “Terry built them from the ground up, got these guys back together, got them practicing, then unveiled them to Charlottesville and just packed the house.” Go-go wasn’t the only genre Martin blew minds with. A veteran of everything from bluegrass to reggae to rock to opera, Martin was always willing to twist knobs for new

Beloved sound engineer Terry Martin made Charlottesville musicians, and the local scene, better through his advice, charisma, and extraordinary sound work.

Loved by drummers and bass players for his low end-heavy mixes, Martin was famous for what Jeyon Falsini, who helped Martin book bands at the Outback, calls “the shortest, most concise, fastest sound check you’d ever heard.” “He held artists to a pretty high standard,” says Falsini. “No matter what genre of music you play, he always had some advice. I think if you talk to any musician in town, you’d find something that Terry told them to do that ended up working out really well for them. That’s probably one of his greatest legacies.” On the other side of the mixing board, Martin shaped the lives and careers of everyone from Falsini, whose club, The Ante Room, he helped name, build, and sound engineer, to Burley Middle School instructor Ivan Orr, the vocalist and saxophonist for a local go-go band that Martin reunited.

HOWARD HERZ

genres. Orr and Martin even had plans for an upcoming gospel show at IX. “A lot of opportunities I had to play music that I enjoy—funk, R&B, go-go—would not have happened without Terry being an advocate for booking that type of music,” says Orr. “Part of his legacy was about inclusiveness and diversity of sounds and people.” While his loved ones mourn the loss of the man with the infectious laugh, who won the lottery twice and shared stacks of the winnings with friends and family, Charlottesville’s music lovers will grieve for an architect and core member of the city’s variegated live concert lineup. “He was such a deep part of the scene,” says Herz. “What he brought to the table was so multifaceted and complex from a personal, social, musical, technological standpoint, that I just don’t know if there’s ever going to be another him.”

@cville_culture

pelling the Lodge—and Charlottesville—to a new level of recognition as big names began drawing large crowds to the Preston Avenue club’s cramped interior. “Those guys wouldn’t have played the club if it wasn’t for Terry being there,” says Herz. “They could have played a lot of places in town. They came there because Terry was there.” That talent and charisma is something that lifelong friend Tyler always saw in Martin, beginning when he was an 18-year-old building a hot tub in the bed of his truck to drive girls around in between DJ gigs at the Days Inn on Emmet Street. “He wanted to be a trendsetter,” says Tyler, who followed Martin to his most recent job at IX Art Park. “He didn’t want to play one genre...he didn’t just want to be a hip-hop DJ. He didn’t want to be a disco or country DJ. He wanted to be a DJ of the people.”

“Those guys wouldn’t have played the club if it wasn’t for Terry being there. They could have played a lot of places in town. They came there because Terry was there.” September 8 – 14, 2021 c-ville.com

t was 1996, and inside Charlottesville’s Outback Lodge, Howard Herz was preparing for one of the hundreds of shows booked and mixed there by the late, beloved sound engineer Terry Martin. Herz went to bouncer Bill Tyler and told him that Martin’s new guitar act, a guy named Derek Trucks, was here. He was Butch Trucks’ nephew, and said to be the reincarnation of Duane Allman, so Tyler had better go tell those kids playing foosball to clear out so the Outback could set up for the band. When Tyler returned, the miniature soccer match hadn’t slowed. He told Herz they had a problem. “Why’s that?” asked Herz. “Because that’s the band,” said Tyler. A decade and a half later, that teenage foosball player would win his first Grammy as the head of The Derek Trucks Band. Thanks to Martin, who passed away unexpectedly at the end of July, the Outback Lodge was home to one of the band’s earliest shows. “It was a tiny little place, and some bands would show up and be like, ‘What the hell is this?’” says Herz. “Then they would meet us and they would meet, more importantly, Terry…and the looks on the musician’s faces when they heard the mix coming through the monitors, or saw the reaction of the crowd or how professional he was, was really something special.” Everyone from Allman Brothers Band guitarist Dickey Betts, to Buddy Miles (a drummer and Jimi Hendrix collaborator), to Dave Matthews Band guitarist Tim Reynolds, would walk into the Outback Lodge and ask for Martin. The venue hosted The Seldom Scene the evening after the band played at the Kennedy Center for Bill Clinton. “The next night, they’re at the Outback, back behind the gas station in a roadhouse with no windows,” says Herz. “People in the crowd are handing them shots on stage and they’re drinking with the crowd after they just hung out with the president the night before. Honestly, I think they were happier at our place.” Sound studios around Virginia sent fledgling bands to the Outback to get their “live feel” with Martin at the mixing board, pro-

Truth, be told Local art installation organizers want patrons to engage the difficult questions By Shea Gibbs

T

“When people harden their views, they lose their curiosity. You have to be curious to understand issues. Truth requires some inquiry and listening to others.” JOHN KLUGE

The Truth Farm installation, created to draw attention to immigration issues, was initially centered around a 120-foot sign made from mylar blankets, which are often given to refugees.

“When you mix the two, you are seeing a full, embodied parent holding the idea of a child,” Valencia says. “The portraits start to create a conversation about separation and the layers that occur through immigration.” The Truth Farm artwork itself has had a migration. Valencia’s work has been featured at the Instituto Cultural de México in Miami. Federico Cuatlacuatl’s Truth Farm contribution, sculptures in the shape of traditional Mexican kites, departed to a museum in Toledo, and the Truth Table itself traveled to Champion Brewing Company and the IX Art Park. Kluge, Valencia, and Fernandez hope the art’s impact extends even further. They are planning another physical installation in Napa Valley, California. While they positioned the first piece next to a Trump prop-

erty to draw the former president’s attention, the work of pushing folks to talk through immigration issues continues, even as a new commander-in-chief has taken office. “I think that one of the really interesting things that has been occurring is the shift in all the information coming out after what happened on January 6 at the Capitol,” Fernandez says, referring to this year’s armed insurrection at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. “There has been a lot of reconciliation with the facts, but all of this rhetoric is still permeating. It is still a tug of war with this word [truth], and with John being Trump’s neighbor, we enacted everything we want to see good neighbors doing— cooking together and bringing people to the table, being inclusive not exclusive.”

The forced isolation of 2020 brought both struggle and opportunity for the local arts community. Now, WTJU, The Bridge PAI, and UVA Music have joined forces to create a “long-term COVID arts time capsule” that explores that impact. “We Hope This Art Finds You Well” will be exhibited inside WTJU’s bright blue camper-turned-micro-gallery, and features a diverse range of local artists and media. “One thing that this project has affirmed over and over is that artists are the soul of our town,” says The Bridge’s Alan Goffinski. “[The exhibit] showcases the way Charlottesville artists supported and inspired each other—and the rest of us—throughout this life-altering pandemic.” A digital exhibit will be also available at artfindsyouwell.org.

ber, Kluge conceived the Truth Farm project along with the group’s deputy director, Enrique Perret, and Fernandez. Fernandez had previously worked with mylar and thought it fit the Farm perfectly. The installation grew from there. In addition to the Truth Table, the Truth Farm artwork includes a working adobe oven built by artist Ron Rael and portraits by undocumented dreamer Arleene Correa Valencia. Valencia’s pieces depict migrant parents and their children against black backgrounds. A friend of Fernandez’s and a professional artist herself, Valencia composes the parents using reflective material and fabric repurposed from her own family’s clothing. She etches the children in glow-in-the-dark thread, implying them only by an empty background.

September 8 – 14, 2021 c-ville.com

The artist’s Truth Table is surrounded by chairs, places where those with different opinions might come to sit, literally break bread, engage, and talk through complex immigration issues. “When people become entrenched in their ideas, they pull a sound bite or barrage of sound bites that they have been spoonfed, and that becomes their understanding of an issue,” Kluge says. “When people harden their views, they lose their curiosity. You have to be curious to understand issues. Truth requires some inquiry and listening to others.” Kluge is not an artist, he says, or even a professional curator. But he thought art might kindle at least some people’s curiosity. A U.S.-Mexico Foundation board mem-

EZE AMOS

he folks behind the art installation known as the Truth Farm want everyone to know the truth about immigration. But what is the truth? And could there be more than one? Unveiled on Refugee Investment Network founder and managing director John Kluge’s family property within the Trump Winery, the Truth Farm installation first centered around a 120-foot sign spelling out “TRUTH” in mylar. Aid workers often give mylar blankets to refugees seeking asylum, and artist Ana Teresa Fernandez used the material to draw attention to wider immigration issues— namely, that worldwide systemic problems beyond people’s control drive them to flee their countries for safety.

It pairs well with spicy foods, fish tacos or chips and dips. And, if you love strawberries, then you’ll love our Sparkling Strawberry. It’s all strawberry and as our winemaker likes

to say, “no grapes were harmed.” Slightly sweet and like drinking a fizzy alcoholic strawberry smoothie—it’s hard to drink just one. Pair it with a burger, grilled cheese or key lime pie.

By Rob Brezsny

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct.22): College student Amelia Hamrick studied the right panel of Hieronymus Bosch’s 15th-century painting “The Garden of Earthly Delights.” It depicts a hellish scene. Cities are on fire. Weird beasts devour sinful humans. There are demons and torture chambers. Hamrick did what no one in the history of art had ever done: She transcribed the musical score that the artist had written on a man’s naked hindquarters. Her work inspired a composer to create a recording entitled “500-Year-Old Butt Song from Hell.” In the coming weeks, I invite you to perform feats comparable to Hamrick: 1. Explore the past for useful, overlooked clues. 2. Find or create redemptive transformations out of stressful situations. 3. Have fun telling stories about your past misadventures.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Born on one of the Galapagos Islands, Diego is a giant tortoise who has lived for over 100 years. He’s a member of the Hood Island species, which had dwindled to a population of 15 by 1977. That’s when he and his tortoise colleague, whose name is E5, became part of a breeding program with 12 female tortoises. E5 was reserved in his behavior, but Diego was a showboat who vocalized loudly as he enjoyed public mating rituals. Together the two males saved their species—producing over 2,000 offspring in subsequent years. According to my astrological analysis, you could be as metaphorically fertile as Diego and E5 in the coming months—even if you prefer to adopt an approach more akin to E5’s.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “The meaning of my existence is that life has addressed a question to me,” wrote psychologist Carl Jung. “Or, conversely, I myself am a question that is addressed to the world, and I must communicate my answer, for otherwise, I am dependent upon the world’s answer.” These are superb meditations for you Sagittarians during the coming weeks. Between now and October 1, I invite you to keep a journal where you write about two subjects: 1. What is the main question that life asks you? 2. What is the main question that your life asks the world?

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): North Korea’s Capricorn leader Kim Jong-un has an amazing résumé.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Between 37 and 41 BCE, Virgo-born Caligula served as third Emperor of Rome. To do so, he had to disprove the prophecy of a renowned astrologer, Thrasyllus of Mendes. Years earlier, Thrasyllus had predicted that Caligula, despite being well-connected, “had no more chance of becoming emperor than of riding a horse across the Bay of Baiae”—a distance of two miles. Once in power, Caligula arranged to have a series of pontoon boats arrayed across the bay, enabling him to ride his favorite horse Incitatus from one shore to the other across the Bay of Baiae. I foresee the possibility of a comparable turn of events for you, Virgo. Is there a curse you want to undo? A false prophecy you’d like to cancel? Someone’s low expectation you would love to debunk? The coming weeks will be a favorable time. Official reports say he learned to drive at age three and was an accomplished sailor at nine. As an adult, he developed the power to control the weather. He’s a skilled musician and artist, as well as a scientist who developed a miracle drug to cure AIDs, Ebola, cancer, heart disease, and the common cold. Most impressively, Kim is an archaeologist who discovered a lair where magical unicorns live. Is it possible you have unexpressed powers like these, Capricorn? If so, the coming weeks will be a favorable time to identify them and start tapping into their potential. It’s time to develop your dormant talents.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Aquarian author Toni Morrison testified, “I think of beauty as an absolute necessity. I don’t think it’s a privilege or an indulgence. It’s almost like knowledge, which is to say, it’s what we were born for.” I urge you to adopt her perspective during the next four weeks, Aquarius. In my astrological opinion, a devoted quest for beauty will heal exactly what most needs to be healed in you. It will teach you everything you most need to know.

Aries (March 21-April 19): “We need to become more unreasonable but in an intelligent way,” says Aries politician Jerry Brown. Yes! I agree! And that’s especially true for you right now, Aries. To Brown’s advice, I will add this message from Aries fashion designer Vivienne Westwood: “Intelligence is composed mostly of imagination, insight—things that have nothing to do with reason.” Here’s one further suggestion to help you take maximum advantage of cosmic rhythms, courtesy of Aries historian Arnold J. Toynbee: “The supreme accomplishment is to blur the line between work and play.”

Taurus

Pisces

(April 20-May 20): “I have become whole and complete, like a thundering cloudburst in summer,” wrote Taurus poet Miklós Radnóti. I love that metaphor for fullness: not an immaculate icon of shiny, sterile perfection, but rather a primal, vigorous force of nature in all of its rumbling glory. I hope you like this symbol as much as I do, and I hope you use it to fuel your creative spirit in the coming weeks. P.S.: Keep in mind that many indigenous people welcome rainstorms as a source of fertility and growth.

(Feb. 19-March 20): Poet and translator Anne Carson periodically joins with her husband Robert Currie to teach a workshop called EgoCircus. It’s an ironic title, because the subject they teach is the art of collaboration. To develop skills as a collaborator, of course, people must lay aside at least some of their egos’ needs and demands. In accordance with current astrological potentials, I encourage you to stage your own version of EgoCircus in the coming weeks. The time is ripe for you to hone your creative togetherness and synergistic intimacy.

(May 21-June 20): Pandiculation is a word that refers to when you stretch and yawn at the same time. According to my understanding of the astrological omens, you will benefit from doing a lot of pandiculations in the coming days. I also recommend gazing lazily out the window and looking at the sky a lot. Keep your shoes off as much as possible, get a massage or three, and let yourself sleep more than you customarily do. Did you know that sighing deeply is good for

Gemini

your lungs’ health? Here’s your homework: Dream up all the things you can do to relax and renew yourself. It’s prime time to indulge in generous acts of self-healing.

Cancer (June 21-July 22): The ancient Roman author Pliny’s 10-volume Natural History, written in the first century, was a monumental encyclopedia of the natural world, unprecedented in its own time and for centuries afterward. It offered compilations of facts about astronomy, geography, zoology, botany, mineralogy, and many other subjects. There was one big problem with it, however. It contained a great deal of erroneous information. For example, Pliny described in detail many non-existent animals, including dragons, flying horses, and giant serpents that swallowed bulls and snatched birds out of the sky. My reason for telling you this is to inspire you to be extra discerning in the coming weeks. Be especially skeptical of authorities, experts, and other know-it-alls who are very confident despite being inaccurate or erroneous. It’s time for you to increase your trust in your own authority.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): “There are those fortunate hours when the world consents to be made into a poem,” writes Leo poet Mark Doty. That’s great for a poet. But what about for everyone else? My variation on Doty’s comment is this: There are fortunate hours when the world consents to be made into a holy revelation or a lyrical breakthrough or a marvelous feeling that changes our lives forever. I expect events like those to come your way at least twice in the immediate future. Expanded weekly audio horoscopes and daily text message horoscopes: Real Astrology.com, (877) 873-4888.

Q&A

How can Charlottesville be more welcoming to immigrants and refugees—and what do we already do well?

Businesses could post signs in other languages.

Hold a Fridays After Five performance of Afghanistan or other cultural music of the refugees, with food trucks serving their traditional food and a craft fair of the crafts of their former homelands. Advertise the heck out of it to get everybody together and involved. Let Cville meet the refugees. PETER LUNSFORD/FACEBOOK

IRC, Int’l. Neighbors, and Lit. Volunteers are great!

@SUZSOREN/INSTAGRAM

So many people are so judgmental about having refugees and immigrants come into our country, this is a shame because if you look at it from the perspective that it could be you, your family escaping persecution and trying to find a better place to live in with freedom. And so many never look back and realize this is how America was founded, and yes it should be done legally but also never forget we stole all the land basically from the Native Americans and placed them in reservations. My family came here in 1666 and most likely were persecuted or fleeing something. It’s time for kindness and love and the bickering politicians need to all be replaced. @MELISSASHIRLEYMILLER/INSTAGRAM

Gardening, food, and music are universal languages. The places where these things happen are where our cultures intersect and merge and where we will find fertile ground for lasting and positive connection. @MAGGIORE1193/INSTAGRAM

Best way to help everybody including refugees is to get the unfinished (14 years) disaster project in mid-C’ville Dewberry jungle concrete monument completed ...please City Council. @LUFFAKLEIN/TWITTER

Oh What We Have

TO EAT!

W

BY KEN WILSON

e eat for sustenance, we eat for comfort, we eat for entertainment. Some of us even laugh at ourselves and say, a little ruefully maybe, that we live to eat. “Foodies” say that too, but they say it joyfully, unapologetically. Foodies eat to savor. They eat for excitement and for the thrill of discovery. Foodies know food is more than fuel and diversion. And foodies have it mighty

good around here. From cucumber kimchi to rosemary fries, from wild-foraged edible flowers to spam musubi (what?), if you can dream it, you can probably find it in Charlottesville—at a bistro, at a white tablecloth restaurant now offering grab-and-go, at a pop-up food truck, or even a cake and bubbles bar. You can’t open your mouth in this town without it starting to water. Let’s meet a couple of the many creative chefs and restaurateurs who keep us hungry and happy.

Cake Bloom And let’s start with dessert first. A slice of Seasonal Citrus Lemon Cake, perhaps, baked with lemon curd and organic summer berries, topped with an edible floral crown, and paired with a glass of champagne? Sure you can get that here, thanks to Susan Sweeney and Cake Bloom, her brand new cake and bubbles bar on West Main. After seven years in the wedding industry, Sweeney is excited to be experimenting with the traditional cake and champagne wedding pairing. “My husband’s in the wine industry, so we’re kind of merging our two worlds with this new venture at the storefront,” she says. “The pressed floral cakes and botanical cakes are what set me apart the most and what I get most excited about. They’re a fun creative outlet to keep exploring different designs.” What Sweeney’s talking about is using botanical extracts to color buttercream, and decorating with wild foraged edible flowers, and freshly picked herbs, berries, and culinary greens. But let’s back up, because the extraordinary doesn’t come out of nowhere. The culinary arc of Sweeney’s career, one could say, can be traced from sugar and butter to luscious buttercream. “Sugar has been a theme in my life for as long as I can remember,” she says, recalling her 1980s Tennessee childhood. Butter too: “My sisters told me I used to eat sticks of butter as a little baby.” When those same big sisters went off to cities like New York and San Francisco, they introduced her to unheard of treats like artichoke and roasted garlic.


35 stations, Walmart—everywhere.” Hawaiians eat more Spam than any state in the country.” His “Mochiko sauce” is a concession to American tastes, however. Ask him about it and he’ll laugh. “When you go to Hawaii, there’s no sauce,” he says, “but when I started serving chicken here, people said ‘But you forgot my sauce.’ It got to the point that I just had to make up a sauce so I just grabbed this recipe for a yumyum sauce and said ‘OK, here’s a sauce.’” Asian quinoa patties with kale, scallions, and sesame oil are another of Tanabe’s tweaks of Hawai’in tradition. “People back in Hawaii don’t eat vegetarian at all,” he says. “Growing up there I never knew how to cook without meat.”

Otto’s Turkish Street Food Specially prepared meat is the highlight at another of Charlottesville’s most interesting dining establishments as well. Turkish natives and business partners Ali Sevindi and Haldun Turgay had planned to open a fine dining establishment serving food from their native Turkey last year—and then COVID hit. That restaurant is still a possibility, Sevindi says, but meanwhile, who’s complaining? Otto’s Turkish Street Food on Water Street, the casual place they’re operating now instead, is Charlottesville’s only authentic döner restaurant, using the same traditional recipes found on the streets of Turkey and throughout Europe. What is döner? In Turkish the word comes from dönmek, “to turn” or “to rotate.” Döner is a “rotating roast,” in other words, and of Central Asian origin, dating to the mid-nineteenth century in Turkey and hugely popular in Germany as well, where as many as two million are sold a day. On the street, döner comes wrapped; Otto’s offers theirs, either beef and chicken, as a wrap, bowl, or as a sandwich with thick pita from a bakery in New Jersey. “The reason we chose them is that they’ve been making the same bread since the 1930s,” Sevindi says. “They sell us unbaked bread; we bake it here. It’s so delicious, you can just eat the bread by itself.” Almost everything else is homemade, like the Arabesk hot sauce, a blend of Turkish and other roasted hot peppers. For vegans and vegetarians there is falafel. Optional add-ons (“like harmony”) include fried eggplant, sumac onion, and

Over at Mochiko in the Yard at 5th Street Station, chef and owner Riki Tanabe is serving the food he grew up eating on the beautiful Hawai’in island of O’ahu: poke and passionfruit dessert and, most of all, Hawai’in fried chicken. Tanabe Sweeneyd his restaurant after that chicken, marinated in garlic and soy sauce, then breaded in sweet rice flour. It was his favorite dish, one he remembers his grandmother making, one he calls the native potluck and picnic food. Cooking became a passion for Tanabe. After college he completed a culinary arts

Hawai’in food is a melting pot reflecting the traditions of the island’s Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Filipino, and Vietnamese immigrants. That’s why you’ll find dishes as various as cucumber kimchi, teriyaki beef, Asian kale quinoa patties, and that intriguingly Sweeneyd and highly popular Spam Musubi—crispy Spam glazed with teriyaki sauce on a rice bed seasoned with furikake (sesame seasoned Japanese seaweed), all wrapped up in nori. “Think of it as a Spam sushi, Tanabe says. “You’ll find it in stores, gas

program at what is now the Culinary Institute of the Pacific. Studies there led to an apprenticeship at West Virginia’s famed Greenbrier Hotel, where he discovered what he calls his culinary calling: pastry. That in turn led him to Charlottesville, and a long stint at Albemarle Baking Co. Nowadays Mochiko’s dessert menu is dominated by passionfruit (Liliko), another Hawai’in favorite: Liliko Meringue pie and Liliko bars, i.e. shortbread cookie with passionfruit curd.

“Farmer’s market culture hadn’t really hit my town, so we didn’t grow up with a lot of fresh produce,” she remembers now. “When my sisters came home, they opened up my eyes to a lot of new things I had never experienced.” Meanwhile Sweeney was dreaming and discovering on her own—whipping up new concoctions, baking for her friends’ birthdays in high school, doodling cakes in her college notebooks. Though she eventually trained at California Culinary Academy in San Francisco, she’s “more self-taught than school-taught,” she says. “I worked for an artisan olive oil company and worked closely with the farmers markets and got well versed in the seasons and the origins of food. I also studied in France.” Here in Charlottesville, she began offering cakes for order in April of 2020. Today along with cake and cake parfaits, curious customers at the storefront can enjoy 12 varieties of champagne and other types of bubbly at the sparkling wine bar. Coffee is coming. The first thing you’ll notice about the cakes, before you even try imagining their taste, is how beautiful they are. They can be ordered in three sizes, with a rotating selection of frostings using cream cheese, ganache, and Swiss meringue buttercream. Decorations come in two basic styles: floral crowns and floral posies. Floral crowns feature three to five botanical elements placed on the top of the cake. Floral posies are small vertical arrangements of one or two fresh stems and seasonal greenery tucked inside a small hydrating pick within the cake. This summer’s lovely add-ons—take a deep breath—include fresh mint, basil, and flowering thyme, fresh strawberries and blueberries, zinnia and dahlia petals, pansies, calendula, bachelor’s buttons, lavender, marigold, bee balm, feverfew, dianthus, chive blossom, rose geranium, chamomile, nasturtium, asparagus fronds, oregano, hops, amaranth, sunflowers, and other seasonal edible blooms. All this, shall we say, elegant epicurean innovation is ongoing—and the fun is not the customer’s alone. “I’m really excited about pairing the cakes with sparkling because I’m not into sweeter wines,” Sweeney says. “So I’m excited about opening up my world a little with pairings. We hope people will think of us as more than cake and more than a bar, and something that’s more about an experience. We’re not really a traditional bakery, but something that’s entirely fresh and new.”

bowl is definitely the chicken with tzatziki and all the fixin’s, especially the lentil ball and pickled beets. The rosemary fries are a great touch too. In fact, I’ve yet to have anything that isn’t insanely tasty.” So it’s quite a restaurant town we’re living in, and the restaurateurs are the first to say so. “Everybody (in the business) knows each other,” says Sevindi, who traveled all over the country before choosing where

to settle. “We hang out, everybody communicates.” We have inquisitive palates around here, and we have the ways and means to satisfy them. This is a town where a man can joke about wanting Jackie Onassisstyle, crème fraiche and caviar eggs at a church breakfast, and find them actually served him. “I’m just really grateful for being in Charlottesville,” Sevindi says. So is everyone with an appetite.
