Tony Vanderwarker, raised in New England, spent a couple years at Yale and then served two years in the Peace Corps where he got bitten both by tsetse flies and the writing bug. He went to film school at NYU and made documentaries and a full length film which didn’t sell so he decided to try shorter films and went into advertising. Fifteen years later, he had his own ad agency in Chicago where he did “Be Like Mike” for Gatorade. When his partners bought him out, Tony finally had a chance to write full time. It only took him fifteen more years to finally get a book published. “Who cares?” Tony says, “some writers hit paydirt fast, others take longer. I’m just glad my time has come.” visit www.tonyvanderwarker.com

Nate Anda Butcher, Chef Red Apron & The Partisan ADAPTED FOR KESWICK LIFE
Nate Anda takes his meat seriously: a combination of
classic culinary training, immersion in the art of charcuterie, and an unshakable commitment to the tradition of butchery has shaped every aspect of his work. Raised in New Hampshire, Anda’s family later moved to Keswick and first started cooking as a teen, working under Chef Angelo Vangelopoulos at the Ivy Inn in Charlottesville, Virginia. There, and at subsequent internships that followed, he learned about the craft of charcuterie. Eager to make cooking his profession, Anda soon enrolled at the New England Culinary Institute in Montpelier, Vermont, where he took every course offered on butchery and charcuterie. Returning to his home region of the Mid Atlantic, Anda continued to hone his skills at Equinox Restaurant in Washington, D.C., and Salamander Market in Middleburg, Virginia. In 2004, he accepted his first executive chef role at Tallula in Arlington, Virginia, where he gained critical notices from USA Today and The Washington Post for his charcuterie, especially the house-made bacons.

Each product is cased by hand, aged or smoked – often for months and under careful watch – until it’s just right. was long defined by the classic steakhouse. Anda’s work earned him a Good Food Award in 2011 for charcuterie, and accolades from The Washington Post, Men’s Health, Bon Appetit, Washingtonian, Urban Daddy and others. Anda is pushing butcher-shop boundaries and making Red Apron home base for artisan charcuterie in the region, earning himself a StarChefs Rising Star Concept Chef Award in 2014.
flavors inspired by old world technique. Nathan Anda is the Butcher and Chef at Red Apron Butcher, an artisan butchery and small batch producer of handmade charcuterie founded in 2009, as well as The Partisan, its adjoining restaurant and bar. His combination of traditional techniques and culinary expertise has helped Red Apron emerge as D.C.’s definitive source for real and honest charcuterie, pâtés, salumi, terrines, sausages and more.
Red Apron Butcher, a creative collaboration between Chef Nathan Anda, the Neighborhood Restaurant Group and a handful of dedicated regional farmers, is a locally sourced whole animal butcher and small-batch producer of handcrafted charcuterie and fine provisions.
All the while, Anda continued to build upon his expertise with butcher-shop tours of Italy, fermentation and curing workshops at Iowa State University, and with an internship at The Fatted Calf in San Francisco. In 2008, Anda founded Red Apron Butchery, rooted in Italian charcuterie with a style that emanates from his endless experimentation and curiosity—using flavors from Asian chiles to Fernet Branca to enliven his program.
Their philosophy is driven by an inflexible commitment to using only the finest all-natural, hormone and antibiotic free, humanely and sustainably raised beef, pork, lamb and poultry. They have spent years developing the relationships they have with their farmers, and have been recognized as the first American butcher shop to source 100% of its pork from Animal Welfare Approved farms, an organization whose standards are the most strident and rigorous in the nation.
Through Red Apron, Anda has built close relationships with local farms that all raise their animals following sustainable and humane rearing practices, and many of which are Animal Welfare Approved. During production, he hand-grinds and mixes meats according to his
Their craft is defined by an inimitable catalog of nearly 80 original artisanal products – all of which are 100% handmade and deliberately produced in small batches designed not merely to mimic traditional or familiar foods, but rather to introduce both new and innovative
Olympic Bound Locals, Saddle Seat World Cup and More... BY KESWICK LIFE
Olympic Bound Allison Brock and Rosevelt, a 13-year-old Hanoverian
stallion owned by long-time Brooke USA patrons Fritz and Claudine Kundrun will compete with Team USA in Dressage at the Rio Olympics. Brock and Rosevelt made their name on the national stage with a stellar performance at Dressage at Devon in 2014, earning double wins that foreshadowed their future success. Since then, they continued to make a name for themselves with multiple victories during the highly competitive winter season in Wellington, Florida. During their 2016 European tour they were consistent and scored well, earning themselves a spot on the U.S. Olympic team from a very competitive field. The Rio Olympics will be the first major championship team competition for Brock and Rosevelt. Hyperion Stud owner, Vicky Castegren recently announced that her prized stallion Imothep, has been short-listed for competition at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics, under Japanese rider and 5 time Olympian, Taizo Sugitani. A very joyous Vicky Castegren, said “I never thought that when I dreamed about qualifying for the Olympics it would be like this. As a rider I dreamed of it for myself, but as an owner I did not even conceive
of it. Yet here I am almost astonished that after this wild ride we have all been on, we can legitimately say we have arrived. I am overjoyed with having the honor of being surrounded by such an incredible team who has brought us to this point, and I hope we are given the opportunity to represent each and every one of the people who have helped us along the way.”“I have had the honor of representing my home country in five previous Olympics, and have an extremely bright outlook for what we are bringing to the upcoming Olympics in Rio,” said Taizo. “I feel as though we are bringing a strong effort to Brazil, and the relationship between Imothep and myself is getting stronger and more comfortable as time goes on.”
according to the Longines FEI Jumping Rankings.
Sugitani has represented Japan in individual competition during every summer Olympics since Atlanta in 1996, with his best result to date being tied for 15th in Athens during the 2004 Games. Additionally, Taizo has been a part of team competition in the 1996, 2000 and 2004 Games, with Japan’s best result of those years being 11th place at the 2000 Sydney Olympics. In addition to Taizo’s Olympic experience, he has remained quite remarkable, as he has earned two Bronze medals in the 2014 Asian Games, six appearances at the World Equestrian Games and twice appearing in the World Cup Finals. Sugitani is currently ranked #177 in the world,
As the highest ranked Japanese show jumper, Taizo Sugitani has been named to the four person team for Japan. Also representing Japan, his teammates are Toshiki Masui, Reiko Takeda and Daisuke Fukushimo, with Koki Saito as a reservist.Chef d’equipe, Hirokazu Higashira is expected to release the official horse and rider combinations within the next couple of weeks, as teams make final preparations for their travels to Brazil in August. Rio de Janeiro Olympic equestrian showjumping competition will begin on August 14, 2016.
Castegren added, “I am a true believer that everything happens as it should even though the path can be difficult. Each and every one of the talented people who have been a part of Imothep’s education over the years have brought us to where we are today. When I take a look back at what we have accomplished as a group, since I purchased Imothep as a 6 year old in 2009, I am completely humbled at the level of success we have attained to this point. It brings me an immense amount of pride and joy to see everyone involved, especially Imothep’s trainer Craig Yates, acknowledged in this way. This is the pinnacle we all dream of in some capacity.”
U.S. Saddle Seat World Cup Team Wins Gold/Silver Stellenbosch, South Africa - The U.S. Saddle Seat World Cup Team traveled to South Africa to compete in the 2016 International Saddle Seat Equitation World Cup at the Mistico Equestrian Centre, July 7-9.

Under the guidance of coaches David Cater (Dunbarton, N.H.), Pam Roush (Lutz, Fla.), and Kent Swalla (Columbia, Mo.), the ThreeGaited section won Gold and the coveted Three-Gaited World Cup trophy while the Five-Gaited section won Silver. “We could not be more proud of the team as a whole and both the Three- and FiveGaited teams had brilliant performances. More importantly, they came together as
a team which made the whole event more meaningful.”The U.S. Team and supporters were thrilled with the final results announced at Saturday evening's Award Ceremony.

Boys & Girls Clubs Visit Keswick Hunt Kennels On Tuesday, June 28, Keswick Hunt Club welcomed a group of children from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Orange to their Clubhouse and Kennels in Albemarle County, Virginia. The youngsters first heard from whipper-in and historian Barclay Rives about the goals and planning involved in organized foxhunting. Nancy Wiley, MFH, a former board member of the Boys & Girls Clubs, encouraged the children to share their outdoor experiences and to be keen observers of nature and wild animals.These Boys & Girls Clubs participants quickly mastered the technique for holding their hound's attention. Noted artist, Lee Gildea, continued this theme by displaying several of his works: paintings, carvings, and spectacular walking sticks formed from saplings twisted by honeysuckle or other vines (including one featuring whittled and painted likenesses of the Keswick pack). The children enjoyed examining the pieces and hearing Mr. Gildea explain that he began carving as a hobby while out in the woods waiting for hounds to come home.The visitors then followed Huntsman Tony Gammell into kennels, where they were enthusiastically greeted by this year’s adolescent puppies. Human and canine youngsters had a terrific time romping together and exchanging affectionate hugs and kisses. Eventually, Tony and kennelman Mike Poindexter, brought out several couples of adult hounds, and with a precautionary ratio of two children per hound (with several adults distributing biscuits and assistance as needed), the group went for a brief but energetic walk around the Keswick Horse Show grounds. All the guests had a newfound appreciation for the work involved in training and caring for hounds and some new inspiration to get outside and explore our natural world.
The Boys & Girls Clubs seek to “provide an after school and summer program for children and teens ages 6-18, comprised of diverse activities that meet the interests of all youth,” with the goal of “promoting and enhancing the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence.” The Clubs in Orange, Virginia, have developed a nature trail adjacent to their building to encourage outdoor exploration and also visit different area farms as part of their enrichment programs.
Keswick Hunt, established in 1896, participates in several community outreach events through the year. The club has an active program for its junior members, the Keswick Cubs, including mounted, unmounted, and social activities. Staff planned to bring hounds to the Boys and Girls Clubs headquarters as a follow-up experience for the children shortly after this article was written.

ONLY IN KESWICK I Married a Garden Club
At first I thought, “What could be wrong with it?” Annie loves flower arranging and is good at it, why shouldn’t she join a group of ladies with a similar interest? What could be the downside of signing up with a couple and hanging with fellow flower fans? What I discovered is that garden clubs are like crack cocaine. You try a little bit and before you know it you’re hooked. In no time the garage is jammed with tables covered with greenery, containers, hunks of driftwood and a million other bits and pieces of flower arranging detritus. Flowers are flying in from Florida and boxes of containers and Oasis arrive from Amazon. You have to perform an acrobatic ballet to get from the car into the house. “I’ll clean it up after the Daffodil Show,” she promises. But then comes the Lily Show, then the presentation to the club in Norfolk followed by the one in Winchester. Instead of getting cleaner, the garage turns into an obstacle course. One false move and after tripping over a hidden flower bucket you’re flat on your keyster. “I know it’s a mess but I just have to get through these next three shows and then I’ll get to it. And by the way, I have a delivery coming tomorrow with a bunch of stuff I’ve ordered and I’m going to be up in Orange so could you take care of it for me?” The delivery turns out to be seven five-foot long boxes that have to be hustled in from the cold, opened and the flowers have to be “processed”. Processing is like a booster rocket for flowers, dousing them in water

and adding a couple jiggers of plant food to restore them to their original condition. So I’m impressed into the garden club as a temporary guest worker, opening the seven boxes, unpacking the flowers, unwrapping them, making fresh cuts in all the stems, stripping off excess foliage and immersing them in water sweetened with flower preservative. As I’m processing, it occurs to me that all these flowers were packed up by migrant workers who take home maybe seven dollars a day—I’m unpacking the same stuff so what does that make me? It takes me an hour and a half and I don’t even see the measly seven bucks. And when she gets home, invariably I get the remarks, “You cut these too short.” “You left too many leaves on.” “These need to be in a bigger container.” I want to say, “That’s what happens when you hire unskilled labor,” but I know better. Instead I grin and bear it. When the garden club comes over for cocktails, guess who turns into the butler/bartender? And when she forgets something critical for one of her lectures, guess who turns into delivery boy? That’s okay, I only write for three hours a day, I have plenty of time to do menial work. Let’s not even talk about when Annie does an arrangement and calls to me, “Will you come here, there’s something I want you to look at.” Carefully making my way through the garage minefield, I see my wife stand-
ing in front of a half-finished arrangement. “Does this look too representational? It’s supposed to be abstract,” she asks. Demurring does no good, “C’mon, I need your help, please tell me what you think.” So with no other choice, you step right in it. Now here’s where the ice gets really thin for a garden club guest worker. Because if she takes your advice and doesn’t bring home a blue, you’re getting some of the blame. “I shouldn’t have listened to you,” is what you get. “I knew it was too representational right from the start but I let you talk me into it.” But it gets worse. From crack cocaine, addicts often go on to heroin. It’s the same with garden clubbers. They take the leap from doing flower shows to putting on Garden Week. Annie got dragooned into being deputy-dog this year. It’s like a military campaign. All across Virginia, thousands of garden clubbers mobilize to put on a week of house and garden tours across the state. It’s an 11 million dollar operation and it takes regular army to pull it off. Chief-of-Staff, generals, colonels, captains, lieutenants and thousands of grunts. Annie is a captain reporting to Colonel Catherine. The campaign begins a year before when Google Docs start flying and they begin reporting to Richmond on a regular basis. As Richmond was the capital of the Confederacy, it’s now the nerve center of the Garden Week campaign.
week. Annie’s target is Culpeper. So if she’s not off to Richmond, she’s in Culpeper. A year ago, they sweet-talked a bunch of poor suckers into putting their farms on the tour. In late winter, their properties get invaded by the army. They make plans to station women in each house as guides, assign teams to do multiple flower arrangements, recruit car parkers, hire buses and port-apotties, make arrangements for food and drinks. As you can imagine, our phone rings off the hook and emails pile up on Annie’s computer. “I must get fifty a day,” she tells me as her fingers tap, tap, tap, on her phone. So even though my wife is home, she’s really not because she’s got her nose in her iPhone 24-7. If I have something to say to her, I have to book the time to talk. And then there are the crises when she makes a mad dash to the car, screams down the drive and speeds to Colonel Catherine’s for an emergency meeting. If I try to tell her she’s taking everything too seriously and needs to step back and get some perspective, I get, “You just don’t get it, do you? This is a tremendous undertaking and we have a million things to do. So you just better get with the program, okay?” Oh well, after Garden week is over maybe I can divorce the garden club and see if I can remarry my wife.
“I’m going to Richmond tomorrow for a meeting,” is what I hear a couple times a

Make A Wish. Take A Chance. Make A Change. BY MARY MORONY
Wishing and dreaming can be some potent
night at the palace. With too many dances with the Prince and all the tedious bowing, the ‘wished-for’ becomes empty and vacant, inciting yet another longing for even the socalled ‘happily ever after’ to be different.
stuff. If you look back on your life and see how many things you wished for showed up, you just might be surprised. Sometimes we miss a fulfilled wish because it didn’t manifest in the exact way we envisioned.
The Germans have another word that encapsulates weariness with the world and all that is in it - Weltschmerz or “world pain”. Not logical, like the philosophy of pessimism, but an emotional response to the idea that there is more bad than good in the world including your wishes and dreams. If you have given up wishing due to the sadness and you know your dreams will never be all that they could - you are suffering from Weltschmerz.
Take this gig (Life Happens) for example; I never dreamed or imagined having a monthly platform to share my thought du mois, but I did regularly toy with the idea that it would be fun to share my deepest (and oft times meaningless) thoughts with a larger audience than Hubs. The chances are good that he did too, possibly for a whole set of different reasons which we will not go into here. Wish fulfilled in my case, whether for my husband’s sake or my own - but what about the cost? Everything, we all know, has a cost. The cost for your wish coming true may not be apparent at first and certainly, doesn’t always show up in dollars and cents. Nonetheless, it comes with a vibrating –for emphasis, not palsy- hand out. Hence, the caution we often hear “careful what you wish for - you might get it.” When the time comes to pay for it, you might have wished you’d been a little more circumspect. The cost of a wish fulfilled in my example is that it has become incumbent on me to have a thought worth sharing, every single month! No biggie, right? Sometimes coming up with an idea to write about is like making orange juice from an already juiced orange. But that is only one part of being on the fulfilled side of wishes and dreams.
Getting bogged down by day-to-day life is part of the design, even when the day-to-day is a dream come true. Think how well evolution would have worked if our Neanderthal forbearers had been happily content just to plop themselves down in their undecorated caves with a just a stick and a club and no other plans, hope or desire. Driven by an evolutionary to-do loop; we humans Seek, Find, and Repeat. If a genie granted you just one wish - what would you wish for? Another wish. We can never be satisfied with what’s in front of us. Boredom is built into the human psyche right along with fear and world-weariness. How do I know this, you just might ask. That’s simple. The French and Germans have specific words for it, so it must be so. SPRING CREEK. Immediate possession and closing available if you seek the golf and leisure lifestyle. A beautiful 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath home with 3,872 sf of living space plus basement storage and a garage. Wood floors, Granite counter tops, open floor plan, Chef’s kitchen, many owner upgrades, luxurious master suite with twin walk in closets. Tennis, pool, Club House, exercise rooms, restaurants and more. NOW $429,900
There is “angst” from the German for fear, which occurs when your wished-for, let's say, JOB appears. Will you keep it? Is there a better one? It’s a long commute. Your coworkers are just meh. If you even notice this angst working on you, dismiss these things as the cost of a wish fulfilled. You aren’t exactly worrying about it, but thoughts of dissatisfaction have a way of worming their way into your initial joy. As the worm trails start to overlap, you find yourself wishing for a new job. Then there’s the French word “ennui” for boredom. Boredom can suck the life and soul out a dream that comes true. Cinderella would have been an entirely different story if her fairy godmother hadn’t the foresight to impose a very strict deadline on her big
Every dream that comes true and wish fulfilled is the stuff of miracles and the juice that makes life so good. Remember that dream job? Great at first, right? When tedium sets in, ‘great’ morphs to ‘good’ and sometimes not even close to that. What do you think is the trick to keeping our dreams alive and vibrant? Why do suppose we lose our verve? Like Thomas Wolfe said, “you can’t go home again.” You can never stand in that exact spot where you initially dreamed your dream or wished your wish. That was thenwater over the dam. The fulfilled desire is over, and there is a new desire, dream and wish to dream anew. Don’t be too hard on yourself if you find that your wishes lead to more wishing and dreaming, if wishes were horses, beggars would ultimately be unsatisfied, even with a Ferrari.

an oft-remembered part of Sweet Briar lore that Dave Matthews performed at least twice at the College in the mid-1990s. What is less well known is that a highquality recording exists of his solo concert in the Dell on April 14, 1996. Dave Matthews Band announced on its website today that it is releasing “Live at Sweet Briar College 4.14.1996” through its official store along with a companion T-shirt commemorating the event. Net proceeds from the sale of both items will benefit the College. For those curious about Matthews’ ties to Sweet Briar, a description of the release offers some background: This special, uncirculated Dave Matthews solo acoustic performance was recorded in Spring, 1996 outside at the Sweet Briar College Dell, just before the release of the band’s sophomore album Crash. The show is intimate and carefree and Dave takes his time sharing stories regarding the place of inspiration for “Crash Into Me” (a dorm within viewing distance of the stage) and a recent trip to Africa. This rare performance features beautiful solo acoustic renditions of full-band songs with highlights including “#41,” “Lie In Our Graves,” “Seek Up” and “#36.” When Matthews first played at Sweet Briar in Prothro on Feb. 25, 1994, the band — now in the midst of a 25th anniversary summer tour — was gaining national prominence. By the 1996 solo concert, DMB was weeks away from releasing “Crash,” its second album with the RCA label. Pre-orders of the recording, available in three formats — MP3 for $11.99, CD and FLAC for $13.99 — may be made now to begin shipping in time for the Aug. 19 release date. T-shirts are $25 or may be bundled with the CD for $29.99. Visit DMB’s official store for details. The CD and T-shirts will also be available for purchase at the Sweet Briar Book Shop after Aug. 19.

ia Center for Politics, delivered the keynote speech in which he praised diversity and urged the new citizens to vote but refrained from commenting directly on the upcoming presidential election.Voting registrars were on hand at Monticello to help the new citizens prepare to exercise their newfound right to vote.After the ceremony, Sabato said that Thomas Jefferson laid the groundwork for a more just and equal country, and Sabato said the ceremony at Monticello is a powerful symbol of what America can and should be."Jefferson was the author of the Declaration of Independence," he said. "The fact that he personally didn't live up to all of the words of that document does not make them any less important, any less profound to people yesterday or today. All of American history has been an attempt to cause us, the society, to live up to them, so we honor Jefferson for the words, and I think we can honor lots of other people for helping us live up to the words."
Rapidan’s Waddell Church pastor, Reverend Charles McRaven, also a well-known author of five crafts books, will be featured at a book signing of his first novel at The Arts Center In Orange on Saturday, August 6 at 4 p.m. A prolific writer for many years, contributing to magazines, newspapers, TV and radio, McRaven published his first how-to book,Building the Hewn Log House in 1978. He was at the time a former Journalism professor and a restoration contractor, specializing in historic structures. This volume was followed by Building With Stone, a book he completed in one week, which has outsold all his others. Country Blacksmithing followed, which has currently become popular again with practitioners of that craft. Two other books on stonework were the result of his publisher’s requests: Stonework and The Stone Primer. All these books are currently in print, available at bookstores and on Amazon, as is his novel. Reverend McRaven’s debut fiction, Build Me a Tower, is understandably about a stonemason, an aging, misfit working man facing the challenges of a complex world, in a way that often gets him in trouble. Most of the trouble comes with a much younger female apprentice with baggage, her own life full of dead ends. The first chapters of the book were submitted to the Charlottesville fiction contest as a short story, judged by author John Grisham, who wrote that the characters should be central to a novel. It won first place out of 130 entrants, as did a later Civil War story by this writer. Noted author Cary Holladay, with several books of Virginia short stories and novels to her credit, writes of Build Me a Tower: “This magnificent story captures the rhythms of work, love, and talk—the banter of romance, the pain of confession, the silence of estrangement… At the center of this beautifully-written novel is a passionate, unstable relationship between two complex people who know how to create, and how to destroy.” Since the publication of this novel, the writer’s publisher, Secant Publishing of Salisbury, Maryland, has contracted for two more of his books, to be available later this year. One of these is a post-Revolutionary War story set in east Tennessee, and the other is a 1950’s Ar-
kansas mountain feud, the author’s native region. He tells us this one took three weeks. McRaven is a history buff, and his other as-yet-unpublished novels are a mix of historic subjects and moderns. He and his wife Linda, a former National Geographic picture editor, have lived and raised their five children in Albemarle County for nearly 40 years. The event is FREE and the public is invited.

The parent companies of Giant Food and Food Lion have completed their $29 billion merger after receiving regulatory clearance by the Federal Trade Commission and are expected to sell to competitors nearly 40 Food Lion stores in Virginia. None of those stores, however, is in Central Virginia. European-based food retailers Royal Ahold, which owned Giant Food, and Delhaize Group, which owned Food Lion, are now known as Ahold Delhaize. Company officials on Monday unveiled a new website, aholddelhaize.com, and logo that combines their crown and lion iconographies.“Today is the start of an important new chapter and a unique opportunity to deliver even more for customers and communities, associates and shareholders,” Ahold Delhaize CEO Dick Boer said in a news release. Although Delhaize Group has agreed to sell 38 Food Lion stores in Virginia, none of the 14 supermarkets in Central Virginia, including the four in Charlottesville and Albemarle County, is slated for sale. Neither is the only Giant store in the region, located on Pantops in Albemarle County.

Filmmaker Lorenzo Dickerson Local filmmaker Lorenzo Dickerson wants to bring to light to the lesser known parts of Charlottesville’s past.
ADAPTED BY KESWICK LIFE Burley Bears and taught them professional plays. Dickerson said he thinks stories like that of the 1956 Burley Bears are vital, under-acknowledged parts of local history. While Burley Middle School dedicates a hallway to images and memorabilia from the high school, Dickerson said such displays are too easily ignored.
His latest documentary, “Color Line of Scrimmage,” tells the story of the undefeated and never-scored-upon 1956 Burley High School Bears football team.The film premiered at the Maupintown Film Festival at the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center on Sunday. Before being converted to a middle school in 1973, Burley served for 18 years as the area’s only black high school during the time of segregation and Massive Resistance.“Even though [the 1956 Bears] played during segregated times, because they were so good, both African-Americans and whites attended their games in mass amounts,” Dickerson said. Filmmaker Lorenzo Dickerson also works as a web and social media specialist for Albemarle County Public SchoolsAccording to the film, Lane High School had an underwhelming season in 1956, and the University of Virginia was suffering through a 28-game losing streak around the same time.“We would have people who wanted to see a good football game. They knew Friday night at Burley was the place to be,” team member William Redd said in the film. On Sunday, Dickerson introduced the film and led a brief question and answer session after the screening. Also in attendance were four members of the 1956 team. Born and raised in Albemarle, Dickerson had grandparents who attended Burley and he grew up hearing stories of the school’s accomplished sports teams. The story of the 1956 football team came up again at a family gathering when Dickerson moved back to Charlottesville from Maryland last year, and he saw the potential for a documentary.Aiding in the research and interview process was the Burley Varsity Club, an organization of Burley High athletics alumni.“I got in touch with the president of the group, and off the top of his head he already knew one of the players who was still here
On Stage The Wonder Bread Years Tuesday, August 2, 2016 to Saturday, August 6th at the Ruth Caplin Theatre, University of Virginia As a former writer for Jerry, George, Elaine, Kramer, and Co., Pat Hazell knows how to make something funny out of nothing. In his acclaimed The Wonder Bread Years, Hazell is the
in Charlottesville,” said Dickerson. “That was the first interview I did, with Mr. William Redd. He put me in touch with a few of the other players, so I was able to meet with those guys and do interviews, as well.” Also interviewed for the film was Charles Barbour, the city’s first African-American mayor and an early proponent of the Downtown Mall. In the interview, Barbour recalled getting married and starting to work at the UVa hospital the same year he began attending Burley and playing football. The players also recounted meeting and being coached by Charlottesville native and New York Giants offensive lineman Roosevelt Brown. The same year, the Giants won the NFL championship. Brown inspired the
highly-entertaining chaperone on a “field trip back in time.” This nationally touring one-man show is a warm and funny salute to Americana and a nostalgic and comedic love letter to Baby Boomers everywhere that comes complete with tales of Country Squire station wagons, lawn darts, Big Wheels, Eskimo Pies, and a sense of wonder that is much needed in today’s world. Seinfeld himself calls the show “milk-snortingly funny.”

“People walk those hallways all the time without paying attention. If you don’t enter the school, which the vast majority of people here have no reason to do, then you never know the story,” he said. “When I went to Burley to film parts of this film, I was in that hallway, and I realized there was a picture of my own grandmother on the wall and I had never seen it before.”That discovery shows Dickerson’s deeply personal connection as a filmmaker to his subject matter. His first documentary, “The Coachman,” followed his own greatgreat-grandfather’s life as a coachman in what is now Keswick Estates.“The Coachman” sparked Dickerson’s love for the art. In addition to “Color Line of Scrimmage,” he will soon release a documentary about the historical experiences of students and teachers in rural schools and black high schools called “Albemarle’s Black Classrooms.”“Part of what I do as a filmmaker is really wanting to tell the stories that are here, locally, that we don’t hear and are not taught about in school,” he said. “The Coachman” is a documentary short film about the life (1887 - 1946) of a local African-American domestic worker in Albemarle County, Virginia for one of the area's most distinguished estates. He came from slaves, held a position of prestige, enjoyed love, and endured heartache and loss. He lived through Jim Crow, The Great Depression, Great Migration, WWI, and WWII. And though he died with a less than glamorous social status, he built a family of people willing to work hard and strive for greater heights. This film is about researching the past and getting to know your ancestry.

Reflecting on Great Summer Pool Reads The heat of the summer is upon us and I returned to a tradition that I instituted when my children were little…a weekly excursion to the downtown library. There is nothing more satisfying than returning home with a stack full of new books to explore. Chores are left undone and the bedside light stays on a little later as I indulge myself. There is nothing quite so satisfying! So here are some of my latest finds and I hope they inspire you to make the journey to your local library and load up on mystery and fantasy this month.
In the mystery category, William J. Mann has done a marvelous job recreating Hollywood at the beginning of the film industry (1920’s). Tinseltown: Murder,
Morphine and Madness at the Dawn of Hollywood takes place when the movie industry was just beginning to deal with the threat of censorship. The murder of a well-respected Hollywood resident, William Desmond Taylor, brings the decadent lifestyle of the stars and producers into clear focus. Mann provides wonderful insight not only into the murder but also explores the men who are responsible for the beginning of the film industry. He has done an incredible amount of work to give a possible and profitable conclusion to this real life murder.
A Certain Age by Beatiz Williams takes you to the same time period…the 1920s, but on the other side of the United States. Mrs. Theresa Marshall of Fifth Avenue and South Hampton, Long Island is having an affair with The Boy (Captain Octavian Rofrano). A hero of the Great War, The Boy caught the eye of Theresa while summering in the Hamptons. Theresa’s husband, Sylvo, keeps himself busy with his mistresses, leaving Theresa to amuse

herself. For those of you familiar with opera, this is a re-interpretation of Richard Strauss’ comic opera, Der Rosenkavalier, set in the Jazz Age. It is very well written and the mystery is kept taut until the end.
Another mystery which carries over the operatic theme, Sent to the Devil by Laura Lebow takes place in Vienna, Austria in 1788. Dupont, who writes librettos for Mozart’s operas, used to be a priest but when his friend, Father Alois, is murdered, Dupont is pulled into the investigation against his will. Memorable characters that you will recognize from history populate this enthralling novel. Vivid descriptions of Vienna…the parks, the coffee houses and the palaces make this a perfect summer read if you want to be taken on a journey to Europe.
genre in the summer so if you have never delved into fantasy before, now is a good opportunity.
The House of Shattered Wings takes place in France sometime after the war between the Houses of Mortals and Fallen Angels. These houses are now vying for control over the once beautiful Paris. There is a dark evil lurking in the shadows, killing mortals and the fallen equally. Filled with magic and mystery, this novel by Aliette de Bodard reminded me a little of a Harry Potter for adults.
istence of her youth. Unfortunately she finds herself in another web constructed by her mother-in-law. This novel is about three generations of woman who can weave spells of magic to control their world, sometimes with devastating effects.
The Fourline Trilogy begins with The Gateway to Fourline. It is actually considered young adult fantasy but I loved it…maybe that says something about me. Author Pam Brondos has done a wonderful job creating a world that is alluring, frightening and addicting. Natalie Barnes is struggling to keep her grades up and come up with a way to pay school fees without causing her family to lose their farm. She comes into contact with some strange characters who offer her a way to solve all of her problems and suddenly she is pulled into an intrigue that encompasses two worlds. She must learn to fight and defend herself and her new friends in a world with completely different rules. I enjoyed the first book so much I got the other two in the series and had them read within the week. So if you are in the mood for literary indulgence go take a trip to the library and grab a selection of titles to tempt you into some late night reading.
There are several lovely fantasy novels out currently and I always enjoy this
