With so much “bad” happening right now, ranging from the Invasion of Ukraine to the rage over abortion again taking center stage in America, let's escape for a few minutes and talk about something less important, seemingly trivial, yet necessary to confront.The Major League Baseball and National Football League Hall of Fames are the most coveted and noteworthy Halls in all of America. There's a Hall for almost every interest, ranging from croquet to paper. I'm not sure why we need an Insurance Hall of Fame, but I sure am glad there's the AVN Hall of Fame, which honors the best of the best in the porn industry. I suppose there's a reason why the Mascot Hall exists, so too the Quilters, Scuba Divers, and Internet Halls of Fame.All of which makes the most embarrassing Hall of Fame of them all so shameful.You see, the Basketball Hall of Fame actually inducts people that have something to do with the game; either as a player, coach, or even referee of the game of basketball.The AVN Hall of Fame includes porn stars, directors, and even companies that directly play a role in making world class pornography.The debate over what exactly a genre of music is defined as has raged since the first caveman uttered out the original version of Ooooooga-Booooga. Just recently on the RAD show, we debated what exactly defines “Classic Rock,” music; is it age? Feel? Sound? Can Grunge be Classic Rock since Grunge, at its' height, was played endlessly on every mainstream rock station in America? Are hair bands classic rock? What about bands like Linkin Park, who were at their peak 20 years ago?One thing that was never debated was whether or not Janet Jackson belongs to the category. Do you know why? Because she clearly has nothing at all whatsoever to do with rock music. Oh sure, occasionally a rock artist will find their way to the pop category with a certain song, or specific sound. Aerosmith has charted on the Billboard Hot 100 more than once, Journey a dozen times, and the aforementioned Linkin Park a half dozen times, all while also being played on Rock stations. But never have you once turned on a self-respecting rock station, whether it be classic, mainstream, grunge, or anything in between and heard Madonna.And yet, somehow, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame includes both Janet Jackson and Madonna amongst its' inductees. Not to mention James Taylor, Abba, Donna Summer, Run DMC, Bill Withers, Public Enemy, and NWA. Jesus jumped-up Christ.I realize this complaint is neither unique nor new; people have been arguing about how in the world pop and rap stars are in any way deserving of being enshrined alongside the inarguables like Zeppelin, The Beatles, Pink Floyd and the like since the Hall began. And of course, there's the annual list of bands that aren't in the Hall, which, when compared to knowing Abba and NWA are in, makes the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame lose all credibility. Somehow, Madonna and Donna Summer are in, but Iron Maiden, Motley Crue, Pantera, Stone Temple Pilots and even Ozzy Freaking Osbourne (as a solo artist) aren't!Nothing has been more embarrassing and telling than the 2022 inductees for the shear whiplash you get from imaging how the extremes on each side could ever possibly be uttered in the same sentence as “rock and roll.” The only acts that belong amongst this year's inductees are Judas Priest and Pat Benatar. The absurdity of Harry Belafonte, Carly Simon, Duran Duran, and The Eurythmics speak for themselves. But the three points on the triangle that level waste to this garbage hall are Eminem, Lionel Richie, and Dolly Parton. Yes, Dolly Parton, whose only association with this genre of music is a lyric in one of her songs in which she says “I'm a little bit country, a little bit rock and roll,” which she sang in a COUNTRY song (and it was a remake of Donny and Marie's biggest hit…also, not rock and roll artists).All of this would be a non-issue if they would have named the Hall what it clearly is; The Musical Performers Hall of Fame. There's nothing at all “Rock and Roll” about so many of the inductees that it's both an insult to the genre, and a slap in the face at some of the greatest musical performers of all time who AREN'T in. After all, if somehow NWA and Public Enemy are in the Hall, how is Snoop Dogg not? Or Mariah Carey, for that matter?And don't get me started on the fact that what is supposed to be the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is in one of America's worst cities, Cleveland, and for no legitimate reason at all whatsoever. Juts because Drew Carey sang “Cleveland Rocks,” doesn't make it true. Other than Nine Inch Nails and Joe Walsh, nothing resembling rock has come out of that sewer by the Cuyahoga River, unless of course you consider Tracey Chapman and her depressing ass “fast Car,” Rock and Roll, which the Hall of Fame probably will soon. Pathetic.See? Wasn't that a fun few minutes? Isn't it nice to occasionally get all ginned up over something meaningless, yet not?Now, you may resume worrying about soaring prices, Roe versus Wade, Covid, masks, the legitimacy of the 2020 election, the current President's mental state, war in Europe, the baby formula shortage, hepatitis in children, the soaring crime rate, record-high illegal immigration, The Johnny Depp/Amber Heard cringeworthy trial, the popularity of Doctor Strange and what it says about our society, and why the UFC scale wasn't working properly this weekend.

Soon after that, Kathryn was asked to represent the United States as ambassador to Austria by then President Bill Clinton. After serving for several years, the Halls returned to Napa Valley and set about establishing Hall Wines. Our guest, Mike Reynolds, was hired as founding winemaker and eventually became President of Hall Wines. Known for their wide array of Napa Cabernet Sauvignon (they produce 18 cabs!) and the beautiful artwork not only on their labels but in their tasting room and operations offices, Hall represents the essence of Napa Valley wine country - from their farming rustic roots to the artistic expression that calls to  winemakers to the wines that allow the variances of the mountain and valley's terroir to shine through.Listen today to learn about the 18 Cabernet Sauvignon offerings from Hall Wines, the specific two we tasted and how they can each be distinctly different from one another (they can!).

Legendary Montauk Project researcher, Peter Moon, discusses a space time portal from Romania to Tibet and a secret tunnel to Egypt's Hall of Records that are described respectively in books two and three of the Transylvania book series. The popular series contains the revelations of a Romanian insider, Radu Cinamar, who works for Department Zero, a paranormal research division of the Romanian Intelligence service. Peter Moon discusses several efforts to corroborate Cinamar's information through Romanian news outlets, and why Cinamar was recruited into Department Zero's paranormal divisioin after being taken to Tibet through a space time portal located in Romania's Apuseni Mountains. After his encounters with an alchemist called Elinor who can prolong life through a mysterious geometrical device, Cinamar meets a Tibetan lama who guides him through the portal to meet with 'Machandi' a Dakini/Goddess in Tibet. Upon his return to Romania, Cinimar is formally recruited into Department Zero due to his new contacts and experiences. In book three, Mystery of Egypt, Cinamar travels from an ancient Hall of Records found inside Romania's Bucegi Mountains to a similar structure in Egypt under the Giza pyramid complex. The Egyptian Hall of Records contains tens of thousands of metal disks with holographic information stored in them, as well as a time machine (aka chronovisor) used for viewing past and future events, along with a levitation platform used for aerial travel. In this Exopolitics Today interview Peter Moon elaborates on these and other fascinating developments in the Transylvania book series.

Today consists of a four and four twos, adding up to April 22, 2022. Far more understandable than Day 112, which is another name this Friday could go by. My name is Sean Tubbs, and this is another installment of Charlottesville Community Engagement, a newsletter and podcast that seeks to provide information about all manner of items in local and regional government in and around Charlottesville. Charlottesville Community Engagement is a reader-supported publication. To receive new posts and support my work, consider becoming a free or paid subscriber.On today’s program:Charlottesville City Council learns of an even higher surplus than expected for the current fiscal yearVirginia is set to end its rent relief program in mid-MayA Colorado educator will become the next president of Piedmont Virginia community College A series of speakers wants Charlottesville Area Transit’s Route 6 to continue to stop at the doorstep of Crescent HallsAnd former UVA basketball star Sean Singletary enters the development community in Charlottesville First shout-out goes to the Piedmont Master Gardeners for their annual plant saleIn today’s first subscriber-supported shout-out, the Piedmont Master Gardeners are pleased to announce the return of their annual plant sale! That’s happening on Saturday, May 7, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Albemarle Square Shopping Center. The sale will offer thousands of annuals, perennials, shrubs, vegetables, herbs and houseplants, including a large selection of native plants.In addition, shoppers can purchase garden implements, yard ornaments and other “Green Elephants”; have their tools sharpened by an expert; and drop off their surplus plastic nursery pots for recycling. The sale will also feature a Help Desk for gardening questions and information tables on native plants, soil and composting, invasive plants, conservation landscaping and much more.For more information, visit piedmontmastegardeners.org. Before we begin today, a quick program note. This show is a product of the pandemic. For the past two years, I’ve been producing informational podcasts to help people know what’s going on. I became a journalist almost 30 years ago because bringing people information is what I’ve always wanted to do. At no point do I want to tell you what to think. And for the past two years, I’ve more or less  been able to do this all from home. And for a lot of that time, most of you were at home too. Now that Albemarle and Charlottesville have both gone back to in-person meetings, it’s a bit jarring. I’m not used to it yet and I still have one eye on COVID cases to see what’s going on. Tomorrow’s show will contain an update from the UVA Health System.But I know I’m not alone. At Monday’s first in-person meeting in 25 months, Charlottesville Mayor Lloyd Snook had a similar sense of disorientation when a resident of Crescent Halls came up to speak. “You’re Miss Sandridge… I know what you look like without a mask on a Zoom call but I don’t know what you look like face to face,” Snook said. We’ll hear more from Judy Sandridge later in the show, but I wanted to begin today by acknowledging the past two years and how they were very different from any other time in my career. I’ve gotten used to writing from home. Soon I’ll be back out there doing more, but it’s still an end to an era. The writer Addison Del Mastro has a piece on his Substack Deleted Scenes called Final Pandemic Thoughts which I think is worth a read. That’s not really within the scope of Charlottesville Community Engagement, nor is this whole first segment. But I am curious to know what your thoughts are on where we’ve been the last two years, and what you’d like to see going forward. As for me, I hope to continue bringing you this program.Council gets revenue update Even though Council has recently adopted a budget for the fiscal year that begins on July 1, there is never a time when the city’s finances are not in the public eye. Interim City Manager Michael C. Rogers briefed Council this week on the state of revenue collection for the current fiscal year that ends on June 30. “So far this year we have currently collected 66.93 percent of our budgeted revenue and we remain on track to collect more than the adopted revenue budget of $192,212,843,” Rogers said. The next tax bills are due on June 6 and will include the one cent real estate tax increase adopted by Council earlier this month. Tax rates go with the calendar year, not the fiscal year. That means a budget surplus is almost certain. “While we discussed during the budget process that we would end up with $12 million more, what I’m seeing now based on that revision, it’s $13 million,” Rogers said.Final decisions about how to use that funding will be made by Council later this year after the FY22 books are audited. Runyon named as PVCC’s next presidentThe chancellor of Virginia’s Community College System has named a Colorado educator as the next president of Piedmont Virginia Community College. Dr. Jean Runyon is currently the campus vice president at Front Range Community College in Larimer. . “We are excited to welcome Dr. Runyon to PVCC and believe she will be able to build upon the success and great potential that exists here, not just at the College but throughout the community,” said PVCC College Board Chair Lola Richardson in a statement. Runyon will be PVCC’s sixth president since it was founded in 1972. She’ll succeed Frank Friedman in the position he has held since November 1998. The new president has a long history in higher education with positions such as the director of the Innovative Teaching Center at the College of Southern Maryland and eight years in various positions at Anne Arundel Community College in Maryland. She’ll take the reins at PVCC in July. Virginia rent relief program is set to end In another sign that the pandemic era is over, the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development is closing an online portal through which people can apply for rent relief. Virginians have until midnight on May 15 to make a new application. Virginia was one of the first states in the nation to put a mortgage and rent relief program in place soon after the federal Coronavirus, Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES). The program went live in June 2020 and has provided more than $713 million in relief for 104,990 households across the Commonwealth. To be eligible, households need to have an income less than 50 percent of the area median or have to have had one member out of work for up to 90 days. “DHCD will continue to work with partners and stakeholders across the state to create comprehensive strategies to increase the supply of affordable housing, address and prevent evictions and reduce barriers in housing throughout the Commonwealth,” reads a notice on the agency’s website. For more information, visit the DHCD’s website.Today’s second shout-out goes to WTJUAlgorithms know how to put songs and artists together based on genre or beats per minute.

Charlottesville and UVA have done so much for me.” A preliminary site plan has been filed with the city of Charlottesville to build several townhomes in the Little High subsection of the Martha Jefferson neighborhood at the intersection of East Market and 11th Street. In all, 11th Street Partners seeks to consolidate four lots into one before building ten townhomes. Several existing structures on those properties would be removed, but a house at 1103 East Market Street would remain as it is not part of this project and is owned separately. As part of this plan, the house at 1101 East Market Street would be replaced with a new structure.  “We determined that the most beneficial to the community would be to demolish these existing structures and replace them with very attractive units that we think are going to add a significant benefit to the community at large,” said engineer Eric Woolley.One of these would be a sidewalk on this stretch of East Market where there currently is not one on the northern side of the road. Utilities would be placed underground. Each townhouse would have three bedrooms and three off-street parking spaces. “The way we’ve oriented the units, we think it’s going to be beneficial to the neighborhood by actually providing more parking within the development which alleviates the pressure of overlap parking to other neighbors,” Woolley said. While the application for the Vue at East Market is by-right and would not require a decision by elected officials, a request to close off a public right of way does.“The alley closure piece does have discretionary review by City Council but the other components would not,” said Carrie Rainey, a city planner. One of Singletary’s three partners is Keith Payne, an All-ACC conference running back on the UVA football team. “This is extremely exciting for our team to be able to develop in Charlottesville, especially downtown in a great neighborhood,” Payne said. Payne said he and Singletary graduated together, and have always been looking for an opportunity to develop in Charlottesville. “Being on the corner there, we felt this could be a vibrant site for the city,” Payne said. The team wants to develop other projects in the community. No one spoke at the community meeting on Wednesday. To view the discussion, take a look at the video here. PHAR seeks to keep Crescent Halls bus stop in placeA series of speakers at Monday’s City Council meeting asked the elected officials to weigh in on a decision by Charlottesville Area Transit to relocate the bus stop at Crescent Halls, a public housing site that is currently undergoing renovations. The homes are currently served in both directions by Route 6 and the agency is making the change to help speed up the route. That had not been the plan, according to one resident. “We were told that they would pick up one side and when they come back they would let people off in front of the door,” said Alice Washington. “We need that. Crescent Halls is a senior and disability building.” As such, Washington said many residents use wheelchairs or walkers to get around and need to be able to board the bus. That will be much harder if they have to walk what she said were the 89 steps to the new stop. “If they got to walk from way over here over there and some of these people are almost 80 or 90 years old, it’s impossible,” Washington said. We briefly heard from Judy Sandridge earlier. Let’s hear her again. “If you see me hear with my cart here again, my oxygen, and a thing full with food trying to walk 89 steps?” Sandridge said. “She walked 89 steps. I can’t do that.” Other voices included Brandon Collins, the redevelopment coordinator of the Charlottesville Redevelopment and Housing Authority who said keeping the bus stop where it is has been a high priority during renovation discussions. Another was Shelby Edwards, who succeeded Collins as the main voice of the Public Housing Association of Residents in her capacity as executive director. “PHAR has hosted both private and public conversations with CAT about this topic,” Edwards said. “We don’t understand why this has been such a laborious task. We know that that CAT would like to move to the 30 minute service to increase ridership, but this means little if the people who switch over already have other forms of transportation. Yes, we do want a world where everyone can use mass transit but we first need one where everyone who has no other form of transit can continue to move around freely.”Council also heard directly from CRHA’s Executive Director, John Sales. “We need that bus stop in front of the building,” Sales said. Sales added that a site plan amendment to the Crescent Halls renovation would be required, which could delay the ability for residents to move back in. Sales also pointed out that the route change has not yet been finally approved by City Council. “So I just want to make sure that any other route changes that are going to be impacted by this 30 minute transition gets discussed because not only will Crescent Halls be impacted, but people all over the city are going to be impacted, without anyone knowing,” Sales said.In 2021, Charlottesville Area Transit worked with a consultant to realign the routes, but the changes have not yet been implemented. Under the new changes, Route 6 would no longer travel to the University of Virginia Health System but would stil travel between Willoughby Shopping Center and Downtown. The route would also no longer travel on Ridge Street via Brookwood Drive. No action was taken at the meeting, but this morning Deputy City Manager Sam Sanders and CAT Director Garland Williams offered the following statement:“The City Manager has asked staff to consider options regarding the bus stop service to residents of Crescent Halls, including the Paratransit service administered for the City by JAUNT.  There are multiple conversations in progress and a number of options are being considered but the iterative process of review, feedback, and costing is in full motion.  We will be convening all parties to review and determine workable options to present to Council as soon as possible.”The route changes have not yet been made because of a lack of drivers that would be required to provide the additional service.

Lori Taylor, founder of The Produce Moms, joins Nick to talk about the origin story of her company, the importance of ethically serving and advocating for their audience, and working to get produce on the plates of kids (and adults) everywhere. Nick Carter (Host - Market Wagon) (00:00): Welcome to More Than A Mile. Today I am joined by Lori Taylor. She's an Indianapolis native who turned her solo blogging gig into a nationwide platform that earned her a seat at the table with the U.S.D.A. to make sure school lunches are healthier. I hope you enjoy it. Nick Carter (Host - Market Wagon) (00:17): Welcome to More Than A Mile, a local food podcast from Market Wagon, focused on connecting you to local food through farmer stories from across America. I'm Nick Carter, your host, a farmer and CEO and co-founder of Market Wagon. We are your online farmers market with a mission to enable food producers to thrive in their local and regional markets. Food is so much more than just nutrients and calories. It's actually the fabric that holds us together. And I look forward to crafting a generational quilt of farmer stories and experiences, the victories and challenges of individuals, families, and teams doing their part to help democratize food in America. Thanks for joining me for this episode of More Than A Mile, and thank you for buying local food. It's one critical step in making an investment in food for future generations. Nick Carter (Host - Market Wagon) (01:07): Well, I'm excited to have my guest today, Lori Taylor. Lori is the host of another podcast, The Produce Moms, and a lot more behind that than just the podcast, but I was able to be a guest on Lori's podcast almost exactly a year ago today, I think. And here we are. I get to put Lori in the hot seat and ask her the questions about her story. Lori say hi. Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (01:31): Hello Nick. Thanks for having me. And for all of you that are with us today, here you go. You've got two people who love a microphone in one episode. So saddle up it's gonna be a great conversation. Nick Carter (Host - Market Wagon) (01:43): Oh man, that's a great intro. We're gonna be talking over each other the whole time. Perfect. So how long have you hosted your podcast? You--this is what episode? This is less than 10 for us. So I I think you... Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (01:58): Yeah. We started in 2018. And so we just, you know, in terms of milestone episodes, we are you know, we recently published episode 200 and you know, we're, we're staying committed to at least our, our primary show publishes every Wednesday. And what we have learned is you know, folks are kind of leaning on us for what we call miniseries. So for instance, you know, I'm not sure Nick, when this is gonna publish, but you know, we're in the month of March right now, and we are celebrating the International Women's Month. And right now we are doing a Friday series with Nature Right Farms to spotlight women in agriculture. So yeah, I love anytime you see a Produce Moms podcast pop up on a Monday or a Friday, that means we have a really cool, special edition. So but yeah, our primary show run publishes weekly every Wednesday. Nick Carter (Host - Market Wagon) (02:54): Cool. So The Produce Moms--tell us, but let's start with the title. Tell us what The Produce Moms is all about, what's that mean? Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (03:03): Okay. Well, it means that if someone were just to ask me, like, why did you choose The Produce Moms? Okay. So I'll, I'll tell you the real, the real definition of my business. You know, that elevator pitch, after I tell you what's in my heart about my business. So for me, you know, I truly believe that if anyone can change the world, moms can change the world. And as it relates to the consumption behaviors for the healthiest food in the world, which is fresh produce--fresh fruits and vegetables, it is a struggle that unifies all, all moms, you know, like kids are just, it is extremely difficult to get our children excited about fruits and vegetables. And frankly, it's extremely difficult for us as moms with all of the pressure that's coming our way with running our household, working outside the home, being a good mom, it's extremely difficult to you know, be deliberate about what you're putting into your own body, you know? Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (04:02): And I think that the, the rise of social media has exasperated that like mom guilt, you know, you see all these you see all these like Instagram perfect mommies. And you're like, oh my God, I am, I, I am a loser. I am fat. And my house is a pit, you know? And so that is, and so I think that all of that combined, like when I think about what The Produce Moms is all about our business, our community is simply a place for you to come. All people, you don't have to be a mom. You know, I mean, there, if you want to eat more fruits and vegetables, you are definitely in the right place when you visit TheProduceMoms.com. But you know--all of that pressure that I feel as a mom has driven me to stay steadfast with my commitment to making my business a welcoming place where all feel like they can belong. Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (05:01): And so now that, you know, I guess kind of my motivation , you know, what is The Produce Moms? Well, we're a media platform or a lifestyle brand. But we're so much more than that, you know, and I hope that as we carry on in this conversation, folks can kind of see that come to life. But our mission is to get more fruits and vegetables on every table. And I founded this business in 2012 as an employee of Indianapolis Fruit Company. I pitched it as the marketing director and then in 2015 I had the opportunity to take it off on my own. And I took that entrepreneurial leap at that time because I knew we could great things with The Produce Moms. And that is, you know--and that is exactly what we've done. We've built the number one resource on the entire internet that's fully focused on fruits and vegetables. Yeah, thank you. It feels amazing, you know, when I think about it, but I also have a tremendous amount of responsibility now, too, you know? Nick Carter (Host - Market Wagon) (06:03): Oh yeah. Everybody's looking to you. Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (06:04): Yeah. And I have to make sure that I stay true. I mentioned, you know, that I worked at Indianapolis Fruit Company. That's how I learned, you know, that's how I gained the knowledge to be a industry thought leader, to be a person who can share these facts with folks about fresh produce, the food supply chain, agriculture--it's because I worked in the supply chain myself for a whole decade. And for 10 years, I sold fruits and vegetables to grocery stores really throughout the central corridor of the United States. An 18 state region, over 300 groceries, all sizes formats. You know, I just learned so much when I was selling it and now, and one of the biggest things I learned Nick, was people don't understand fruits and vegetables, you know, I mean, even within the trade, as someone who was selling fruits and vegetables, I didn't know these brands that I was selling. I didn't have any... Nick Carter (Host - Market Wagon) (06:58): As the seller they were just another line item on a wholesale price list for you? Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (07:02): It was just a name on a box you know. And when you consider the timeline for when I was at the sales desk, you know that 2005 to 2012, essentially--that was the, it was hit or miss with whether people even had a digital presence, you know? And they certainly.. Nick Carter (Host - Market Wagon) (07:25): Web 1.0, right? Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (07:27): Pretty much. I mean, we were really revolutionary in 2012, launching a WordPress blog. Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (07:33): You know? So that is--but it is it's been a tremendous honor to usher in this kind of access to the, in consumer for all of the growers and supply chain stakeholders that we proudly represent. You know, it's, it's been a true honor to represent moms as we kind of push on the supply chain, like, 'Hey, get more transparent, tell us facts about farming, you know, help us answer these difficult questions.' Like we don't understand why you use pesticides and we want you to tell us why. And then, you know, I mean, those are all things that we've been able to be a real catalyst to increase education and understanding of fruits and vegetables. Nick Carter (Host - Market Wagon) (08:16): That's really cool. I wanna talk more about that. I wanna talk about the mission that you have and how you're accomplishing it today. But first I want to go a little bit deeper into your origin story. I appreciate you sharing all of that, but so 2015, you've got a solid gig. You're head of marketing. You're at a decently large company. You've been successful and you've been there over a decade and then you leave and you go start, a what? Edutainment company, what does that look like? How does that risk, that jump out on your own, walk us through that mindset so many years ago. Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (08:54): So it's really one of my favorite stories to recount because I can't believe I had the guts to do it and I can't believe I had my family support, but 2012, I mentioned previously that's when the blog went live, you know, and we monetized it as a brand property of Indianapolis Fruit Company. We were able to get brand sponsorships, you know, ad incentives. There were a lot of different ways since we were directly tied to a procurement house, there were a lot of different ways that we were able to monetize this you know, B to C marketing that we had launched. So, you know, three years we built it together and Indy Fruit, my former employer, they supported me at the highest level. I mean, non-family member at a family-owned business. Like they empowered me to bring my idea to life. And then they supported the growth of it and we grew it to where it was self-sustaining, but it certainly wasn't like this big cash cow for the company. Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (09:48): And when you consider the supply chain of fresh food the wholesale distribution stage of the supply chain, you're talking about the middleman. Okay. I mean, like really does marketing even make sense, you know, . And so it really, it wasn't part of their core value or mission to have this whole brand that was dedicated to nothing more than marketing at the time. In 2015, when they said, 'Hey, Lori, bring your laptop and meet us at lunch. at downtown Indianapolis offsite,' I mean, I knew something was up when that happened. I was like, okay, I'm getting fired. And my husband assured me, he's like, no way you have way too many solid relationships with their vendors for where they're gonna fire you. I was like, yeah, well, something's up? And he, we agreed when I went off to work that day, something was up. Nick Carter (Host - Market Wagon) (10:39): Side note, and for listeners, if your boss asks you to start your Monday morning at an offsite meeting Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (10:45): Yeah, well, it was a Friday at that, so it was a Friday Nick. So even more like, oh, eyes wide, open something's coming. And... Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (10:54): Oh geez. And so I go to this I go to Mesh On Mass in downtown Indianapolis and have this meeting with the, you know, executive vice president and the CFO of the company and myself and my laptop. And they tell me, after an awkward, you know, small talk of how are your kids let's order some salads, yada, yada then they say Indianapolis Fruit Company is done with The Produce Mom. And at the time it was singular, The Produce Mom. And I, it was just, I couldn't help it. The tears just came down. Like, I didn't know what to think about that because it was at this point, three years into this--2015, it was my only job at the company. And so my first response was, well, where does that leave me? Because that is my only job responsibility. And they said, well, we're not looking to get rid of you, but we're not going to carry forward with The Produce Mom. Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (11:52): And I was very confused. Well, they slid a legal document across the table for me to read. And it had very clearly mapped out two pathways. Pathway A was we sunset The Produce Mom, you know, the blog and the digital platform. And I basically go back to my job as a sales representative. Then option B was I could buy it, you know, and take it and do whatever I want with it. I could buy back my idea and all of my work for hire--all of the IP that we had built. And, you know, so it's 2022--you know what I chose . Nick Carter (Host - Market Wagon) (12:33): Wow. Red pill, blue pill, right? Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (12:34): Yeah, pretty much. And when I looked at that and I, I was like shocked, obviously... Nick Carter (Host - Market Wagon) (12:42): Did you decide that right there over salads or did you take those two documents home and tell your husband what was up? Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (12:49): Okay. So a little bit of both. I shoved the paper because at this point I'm mad and I'm crying, you know, and I'm like, oh my God, don't let these men see you cry. You're stronger than this. Well, at this point I took the paper and I literally just shoved it back across the table. I said, 'Well, I'm buying it.' And my exact words were, I would be a caged animal going back to the sales desk and sitting in a cubicle. And they just looked at me and they were like, okay. And then they had another document that had the price and I could not believe the price. I mean, we're talking six figures. More than the home that my family and I lived in. And so at that point, I said, well, I'm gonna need to talk to Chip, who is my husband . And so I gathered my things and I left. I was like, I don't want the salad, you know... Nick Carter (Host - Market Wagon) (13:42): I was getting ready to ask, how was the salad? Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (13:44): You know, I need to go back and give Mesh On Mass another another shot, because I have not been back to that restaurant since this day in 2015. But yeah, I gathered my things. I was pretty upset as you can imagine. And really just felt like I was at this crossroads that my family could not--like, we, I felt like we really didn't have an option, you know, like I knew where my heart was at, but we were a young family. We had two children under the age of like four years old. I was making $43,000 a year at my marketing job. Like I certainly didn't have money for a six figure acquisition. And and I did not know how we were gonna do it, but I, I knew that that's what I wanted to do. Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (14:32): And I also knew from the documentation that I had to let them know--it was April and I had to let them know by the end of May if I was planning to buy. And so I went home and we just kinda tried to figure out how can we do this? I mean, we knew considering that we were, you know, we had recently bought a home that was, you know, kind of a stretch for us. And this price point was more than our home, you know, and we had a mortgage on that home. I was like, I don't, no one's gonna loan us money. You know, we knew that. And so I cashed out my 401k and then I borrowed money from my family. And that's how we were, that was how we were able to do it. And then I will tell a quick story too, about how we negotiated the price. Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (15:21): And when I realized my husband and I are a true united front I had to go to all these, you know, smoke and mirrors meetings, where they were justifying the six figure price and going through all the documentation, trying to help me understand what it means to buy an IP portfolio, because you've got to think in 2015, we did not even have a national audience. The unique monthly, or the unique annual visitors to our website were less--like we get that number now about every 14 days on The Produce Moms. Like, you know, it is it, I wasn't buying the super robust digital, anything, you know, we had a regional audience. Less than a hundred thousand annual visitors to our website. Yeah. I did have one brand partner who told me that they gave me a verbal commit that they would stick with me, but I went to these meetings and I was--I got to the point where I was very intimidated because it was like me sitting across the table from people who were my coworkers for a decade, you know? Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (16:24): And I was like, I can't do this. I need another warm body next to me. And so I asked my husband can you come with me to this next meeting? It's really horrible. Like I had already cleared out my cubicle because they said it was for office morale. Like it didn't really make sense for me to be in the office. Like just, you know, so I'd come into the workplace just for acquisition meetings. And my husband was in the very first one that he came to me with for like maybe five minutes and he took the binder and he like slammed it, shut, shoved it across the table. And he says, what if we pay you cash in 90 days? What's the price then? And I'm sitting here thinking, 'Oh my God, we have no cash.' Like what are you talking about? Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (17:03): And so , but it did get them to slash the price in half. I mean, it was still a six figure acquisition. It was still more expensive than our home, but it wasn't as much of a risk, you know? And so that was when we cashed out my 401k, we borrowed the cash from family. And off we went, but it was, I mean, my God, I opened our business checking account with a $4,999 check from USA Pears. It was a 12 month scope of work. I mean, five grand does not pay the bills for 12 months. Nick Carter (Host - Market Wagon) (17:38): You brought the advertisers, the brands with you, and stood this up on your own. Well, congratulations, Lori, because you are the only person I know who has ever paid your employer severance. Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (17:52): I know. And I'm looking for... Nick Carter (Host - Market Wagon) (17:53): Person I've ever known to pay someone... Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (17:54): I'm looking for the other Nick Carter (Host - Market Wagon) (17:56): ...to fire you. Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (17:56): I know I'm looking for the other entrepreneur out there who also, you know, had to buy back their idea , you know, to start their business. It's not like we, you know, this is like to start my ownership journey. I had to buy my idea. Nick Carter (Host - Market Wagon) (18:12): To buy back your own idea. Well, it's always easy to be the Monday morning quarterback, but it seems like you're glad that you did so today.... Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (18:20): Super glad I did. Yeah. Nick Carter (Host - Market Wagon) (18:21): You were, today The Produce Moms is plural. So that it ties into your mission, right? This is not just about you as the mom, but about the moms that you serve. And, do I have this right? You were one of the first 10 in Indiana to become a B corporation. Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (18:40): Yeah. B Corp certified. We just... Nick Carter (Host - Market Wagon) (18:42): B Corp Certified. What's a B Corp? Tell our listeners just a little bit about what that means. Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (18:44): It's a global certification. It's rooted in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and it's a rigorous third party certification that essentially validates this business as a force for good, you know, they, they have, they have processes in place that are rooted in empowering their workforce, empowering their community, protecting the environment and frankly, Nick, the values of B Corp were taught to me by the industry of agriculture. You know, every farmer that we're blessed to work with and for every supply chain stakeholder that we support at The Produce Moms, these are values that they brought to life and taught to me. And the more that I learned and as I studied other brands that I really admired--brands like Patagonia or Tillamook, or even in outside of agriculture you know, brands like Eileen Fisher has a great story about how she has changed the fashion industry to being more sustainable. Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (19:50): Those are all brands that I was like, that really moved my soul. And then I realized, wow, they all have B Corp certification. What does that even mean? And then I started look into it and I was like, wow, this is exactly what I'm looking for. Because far too often, people misunderstand The Produce Moms as like, oh, this is a blog. This is an influencer. And really we do a lot more than that. And so this certification was an opportunity for me to formalize everything that we do, identify our stakeholders, validate our claims. You know what I mean? It's like super easy for me as the founder of this company to be like, oh, we're so mission driven. And you know, we're doing great things for the world. Well, when you have one of the most rigorous third party certifications come in and actually validate it then it's, it's no longer just your passion that is saying that, you know, it is actually validated and I'm not only proud to be one of the first businesses in our home state to have this, but we actually, of all the folks, all of the businesses that are B Corp certified, we have the highest impact model score. Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (20:57): So we rank high in B Corp overall, and most definitely in the state of Indiana. We're the, we're the number one in impact. So, yeah. Nick Carter (Host - Market Wagon) (21:07): Congratulations. That's really exciting. Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (21:09): Yeah. Thank you. It's you know, March is National B Corp Month. So we look forward to having some more robust announcements about that, but there are some amazing brands that are part of this movement, you know, there's for anyone who's outdoorsy. I know I already mentioned Patagonia, but Burton, the snowboard company is. Profession Folks. You've got like Toms and Bombas and Eileen Fisher, like I said. In the ag industry, there's quite a bit in dairy that are part of this. Danone, which is a huge company of, of food brands. All of their brands at Danone are B Corp certified. So for a while, Earthbound Farm, prior to Danone selling Earthbound Farm, Earthbound Farm was B Corp certified, but their new owners did not carry forward with that certification. So it's hard. I mean, you gotta maintain it. You know, and it took us, it's a ton of work. I mean, I did the application process and the certification process in January of 2021. And we certified in March of 2022. Nick Carter (Host - Market Wagon) (22:15): Wow. Yeah. That's a long process. Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (22:18): It's a long process. Nick Carter (Host - Market Wagon) (22:20): Wow. So you're making an impact. You're not not just a blog, not just an influencer, but you're using your blog and your podcast and your influence to make an impact in the world, getting fresh fruits and vegetables into the hands of children. Right? Moms can impact people. Now from our perspective, you know, I talk to farmers all the time and we're talking with smaller farmers who are selling on Market Wagon. You were talking, it sounds like with produce suppliers who are at a much larger scale than a lot of the ones that I have the opportunity to deal with. And I talk a lot about relationship, relationship, relationship. They have to have a relationship with their customers. But I'm--it sounds like, you know, the values that you talk about from food producers that you work with, relationships are still key, even in your business as well, right? Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (23:15): Oh, 100%. Yeah. We, I mean, we have we have to be very particular about who we work with and the brands that we're gonna support, you know, they have to align with our values and you are right. I mean, we definitely work with the brands that you're gonna find at mass grocery retail. Yeah. And, you know, Nick, you have exposed how difficult it is for brands to get on shelf at grocery retail. So out of all the farms that we represent and support at The Produce Moms, I think the smallest one is 10,000 acres. So we're talking definitely big scale, you know. Nick Carter (Host - Market Wagon) (23:50): But you mentioned at the beginning of our conversation, you were talking about transparency. People want to know about how they're raising even on 10,000 acres or on a hundred thousand acres, right. The customer at the grocery store wants to understand how the food was raised. How do you help food producers do that at that scale? Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (24:06): Yeah. Well, thanks for the question. It is, this is one of my greatest passions. You know, people have to know, I also have a burning curiosity to know more. And as my audience at The Produce Moms grows, I have a responsibility to make sure that I always, you know, have clarity on how things are grown and the types of--from how they're treating the human capital to the environment and everything, you know, the outputs, all of that. It's all very important. It's all part of it. So we, there's a lot of ways that we demonstrate that to folks. So I've probably personally been to over 200 farm visits in the last, you know, four years throughout north, central, and south America. So obviously there's... Nick Carter (Host - Market Wagon) (24:54): That sounds like fun. Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (24:55): Yeah. Like boots on the ground documentation. For sure. My most amazing experience was in Costa Rica with Del Monte. I went out there to support them with their 2019 sustainability initiative where they were actually formalizing their sustainability report and presenting it to the end-consumer for the first time ever. Prior to 2019, their sustainability report was something that was, you know, available as a PDF download for their shareholders. And it was never really promoted to the general population and their end-consumer. So that was probably the most tremendous experience I ever had. It also really opened my eyes up about the importance of better pricing models in the United States. You know, I mean, I, when I sat at the sales desk at, I can't tell you how many times we would sell bananas at 29 cents a pound on promo. And then I get out there to Costa Rica. Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (25:49): I'm like, oh my God, there is no reason anyone should ever be selling a banana in the United States for 29 cents a pound, you know? And so I started to see that trip changed my, that widened my lens even more where I started to see agriculture as as the industry that can have--we can break the cycles. If we do it right. I mean, so much of our food is grown, whether you're talking about rural America or, you know, the equator, you know, these tropical regions like Costa Rica. So much of our food is grown in very poor areas and it is, it is an opportunity for us, you know, I've learned through different industry involvements, whether it's the trip to Costa Rica, or I sit on the board representing the United States for Global Women Fresh, which is a, non-for-profit about female empowerment in ag. And I'm also on the board for the Equitable Food Initiative, which is about farm worker empowerment throughout the entire ag ecosystem. So these experiences combined helped me realize some critical facts. You know, if we wanna talk about something as important as, you know, female independence and, financial literacy throughout the world. Well, in most places in the world--where females are oppressed, the only job that they can actually get to earn that financial independence is within the agriculture industry. Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (27:20): And when I learned and things like that, you know, I I'm like we have to tell this to people. People have to understand the purpose of ag at a local, national, and even a global scale because we are, you know, and another thing that I'm really passionate about is, you know, like in the in the name of transparency I just found out frankly, through my B Corp journey meeting some other B Corp founders, I found out my eyes were opened wide about the chocolate industry. I did not know that the chocolate that I was buying in my home for years, people have been pushing on these big companies and it's every single one of them--every single company that's on, you know, for the most part, there's a few outliers that, you know, have tried to combat this, but they cannot guarantee that their supply chains are free of child slave labor. Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (28:16): And if you start Googling that and doing your own research, you will find the facts, but they've also, you know, these industries have done a pretty good job of, of concealing that, so I find the producers that are trying to make change yeah. In these, you know, I mean, that's a massive industry, massive global industry. And when you look at what's happening in Western Africa with boys, the same age as my children and the way that chocolate is available at scale, it's changed my point of view. And I'm like, okay, now at the, I know this, I have a responsibility with my platform to share it. And that's exactly what we did. I brought the founder of the company that taught me that I brought it on the show and we talked about it on the podcast. So I think that, I think that 95% of what we do in agriculture is best in class, but I'm never going to be someone who turns my head at the 5% where, you know, we gotta improve. Nick Carter (Host - Market Wagon) (29:10): With your, with your platform, with the audience that you have, you have a great responsibility. And it sounds like you're taking that very seriously. Thank you. Thanks for helping to expose that kind of stuff. Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (29:20): Yeah. Thank you, Nick. Yeah. Thanks. It's an honor, you know. Nick Carter (Host - Market Wagon) (29:25): So shift gears back to our home state, spring's coming up. So what as, as weather starts to warm up, what are you looking forward to the most of local seasonal, can only get it off of the soil here in Indiana, or the Midwest. What are you looking forward to the most of our local seasonal produce? Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (29:44): Oh, my, that is a tough question. Okay. So I love and I know that it won't necessarily be a springtime crop, but out of all of the, all of the time I spent at the sales desk, I got the most excited about two items in particular: Indiana tomatoes and Indiana cantaloupes. Like I know we're talking more. Oh yeah. I'm convinced. I have told everyone we work with, and this really, this really upsets the people in California when I'm like, the Wabash River Valley has the best tasting cantaloupes in the world. So those are my two: like Indiana field grown tomatoes, because I think even like, as we see the, the surge of indoor vertical farming and greenhouse growing, especially for vine vegetables and, and leafy greens you know, tomatoes are one of those items where a really good field grown tomato is becoming a rare find at grocery retail and... Nick Carter (Host - Market Wagon) (30:43): Distinctly different flavor than indoor grown or, or truck ripened. Yeah. Lori Taylor (The Produce Moms) (30:47): Totally. Totally. So those are my two absolute favorite things. Now, when we talk about specifically the springtime items, you know, things that I love to get in my Market Wagon delivery, frankly include like, you know, the really unique, like I love, I love all the radishes. I love like the patty pan squashes. I love the, you know, the, the fancy kales, like I, those are, I love those things. And I'm a huge believer and anyone who's had, you know, who's been able to come over and enjoy a meal with me at my home kitchen. I am--my approach to food is very simple. Find the best, most beautiful and most delicious ingredients possible and keep it simple, you know, let those ingredients shine. And so when I have the opportunity to buy something like, you know, a romanesco versus white cauliflower, I'm all in, like, I will pay the extra dollar or whatever to do that. And that is how, you know, and I can't tell you how many people have complimented, you know, meals that I've served here in my home kitchen by saying, that's the best meal I've ever had. And I'm like, and you would be amazed at how simple it is too. Like you just have to seek out fresh quality ingredients and let them shine because they will. Nick Carter (Host - Market Wagon) (32:03): Great. Well, if people wanna learn more about that, and we've talked over and over and over again about your blog, your podcast on your website and the education that you do and the cause that you do, how can people find The Produce Moms led by Lori Taylor?

The final day of the month, and the final day of 2022’s first quarter. A lot has happened so far, and there’s still a lot more to go. Mathematically we are 24.66 percent of the way through the year, and for those who want to take the long view, we are 21.25 percent of the way through the 21st Century. It all adds up in this installment of Charlottesville Community Engagement and I’m your host, Sean Tubbs. Sign-up for free for as much material as I can manage to write! Payment is optional but very much supports continued production!On today’s program:People are warned to not come into contact with water in an urban stream in Charlottesville due to high levels of E. coli bacteriaThe director of the Charlottesville Redevelopment and Housing Authority is hopeful Crescent Halls can be reopened this year Charlottesville City Council will meet three days in a row beginning with tonight’s budget work sessionThe Rivanna Water and Sewer Authority gets an update on capacity in Albemarle’s northern growth areaFirst Patreon-fueled shout-out goes to the Charlottesville Area Tree StewardsIn today’s first Patreon-fueled Public Service Announcement, the Charlottesville Area Tree Stewards are preparing to hold their first in-person tree sale since 2019. On April 9 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Charlottesville Area Tree Stewards will open up their tree nursery at the Fontaine Research Park and will sell saplings of native trees, some of which are hard to find from commercial sources for between $5 and $15. There will be large trees from Birch to Sycamore, smaller trees from Blackgum to Witch Hazel, and shrubbery! Visit charlottesvilletreestewards.org to learn more!High bacteria levels in urban streamCharlottesville is warning the public to stay out of Pollocks Branch between Elliott Avenue and Rockland Avenue due to elevated levels of E. coli. Pollocks Branch is a waterway that travels south from downtown Charlottesville and is one of many locations monitored by the Rivanna Conservation Alliance.“E. coli is a type of fecal coliform bacteria and when it is found in water, it is a strong indicator of sewage or animal waste contamination which can cause disease or illness,” reads an announcement from the city. City officials are investigating the situation and advise that no one touches the water. Pollocks Branch runs underground from the Downtown Mall and underneath the Ix Art Park before daylighting at Elliott Avenue where it flows into Moores Creek. The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality certifies the Rivanna Conservation Alliance’s monitoring efforts as a Level III which means the data can be used for official scientific purposes. The RCA has been monitoring bacteria since July 2012. Charlottesville City Council to hold retreat this weekendThe Charlottesville City Council will meet in-person for the first time in over two years tomorrow when they convene at CitySpace for a retreat. A limited amount of public spaces are available, but the event can be viewed via Zoom.The two-day retreat will be facilitated by the Virginia Institute of Government, a branch of the Weldon Cooper Center at the University of Virginia. On the agenda is a facilitated discussion of City Council goals and strategies, as well as an item called “Identify and Build Consensus for Priorities and Actions Items.” The retreat begins tomorrow at 4 p.m. and on Saturday at 10 a.m. (Friday meeting info) (Saturday meeting info)Tonight Council will meet at 6 p.m. for a budget work session. Read previous coverage courtesy of this Tweet thread. CHRA Director wants Crescent Halls reopened by AugustOn Monday, the Charlottesville Redevelopment and Housing Authority’s Board of Directors voted to approve a $12 million budget for the fiscal year that begins tomorrow. They also learned that at least one revenue source for the current fiscal year is coming in much lower than had been anticipated. The CRHA had expected there would be some residents at Crescent Halls while it was renovated, but a flood last summer changed the plan.“There was some knowledge as to what was going to happen but obviously with the flood it created a different wrinkle and deficit,” said Mary Lou Hoffman, CRHA’s finance director. The CRHA had budgeted $291,049 in yearly rent from Crescent Halls but only received $122,745. The building is currently unoccupied as crews work to renovate all apartments. CRHA Executive Director John Sales said the original plan had been to do to the renovation in stages and the budget had expected 70 units would be occupied at all times. “After that we emptied half the building and put them in hotels,” Sales said. However, Sales said insurance would not cover that expense long-term because the units that had been damaged were going to be renovated anyway. “Then we started having the conversation with the residents that were living in the building about the conditions of the building with half of the building being empty, the work that was going on on the other side with the walls being town down, applianced ripped out, and just the morale and how depressing it was living in a building with only four floors occupied and only half of those units occupied,” Sales said. Sales said some residents were moved to other public housing sites and others were given housing vouchers. The CRHA lost revenue not only from rent but from subsidies from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Sales said the project needs to be completed on time. “So I’ve been pushing the contractor that we’re not changing that August date,” Sales said. “We have to make that date work.”Sales said the first phase of South Street also needs to come online on time in order to meet the revenues that HUD officials are expecting. The federal agency considers CRHA to be a troubled agency. When Crescent Halls does come back online, not all of the units will be considered public housing units by HUD. Sales said the units will remain affordable. “At Crescent Halls you’re going to have your traditional public housing units, but then you’re also going to have the project-based voucher units where they will be higher rents but they’ll be subsidized with the voucher,” Sales said. Sales said under the vouchers, tenants would only have to pay thirty percent of their income toward rent.“So we can charge $1,000 for a one-bedroom unit while not impacting what the resident that is living in that unit can actually afford because the voucher is going to subsidize their rent above their 30 percent,” Sales said. “So if they make $1,000, their rent is going to be $300. The voucher would cover the $700.”For the public housing units, the CRHA can only charge what the tenant is able to pay. CRHA Board members also asked City Councilor Michael Payne to ask Council to waive the payment in lieu of tax that CRHA pays to the city each year. Payne said he would bring up the matter at tonight’s budget work session. See also: Public Housing projects move forward after Council talks on CRHA financial sustainability, CCDC property tax liability, October 4, 2022Rivanna Water and Sewer Authority turns 50 this JuneThe government entity responsible for providing drinking water and collecting and treating sewage will officially have to ask the state of Virginia for permission to continue existing. “Authorities are authorized for 50 years and then they have to be reauthorized,” said Bill Mawyer, the executive director of the Rivanna Water and Sewer Authority.The Rivanna Water and Sewer Authority received its original authorization in June 1972, marking the 50th anniversary of the decision to create an authority to provide basic essentials for a growing urban community. “So a part of our celebration will be submitting resolutions to the Albemarle Board of Supervisors and City Council to reauthorize the Rivanna Water and Sewer Authority,” Mawyer said.The RWSA owns and operates facilities that serve the urban ring around Charlottesville as well as Scottsville and Crozet. Mawyer said the Beaver Creek Reservoir has recently been treated to bring down levels of algae. “It is the earliest we’ve seen that we’ve had an algae bloom at any of our reservoirs since our current staff have been around,” Mawyer said. “In the long term, we plan to have a hypolimnetic oxygenation system which is a pipe that goes along the bottom of the reservoir that bubbles air into the water and helps to oxygenate it to minimize the conditions that are conducive to algae blooms.”That pipe will be installed as part of the upgrade of the Beaver Creek Dam scheduled to take place next year. Another major capital project is a proposed waterline to connect drinking water from the Observatory Water Treatment Plant to other portions of the urban water system in Albemarle’s growth areas. Some have expressed concern about the route preferred by staff. RWSA officials have been meeting with neighborhood groups to explain its purpose and to discuss its path through the Fry’s Spring neighborhood along Cherry Avenue, 6th Street NE, and East High Street before connecting to a waterline that serves Pantops. “So the plan is that we’re going to collect all the information and feedback from the neighborhoods, assess it, get any feedback that Council may provide us or the Board of Supervisors and assimilate all that data and come back to the RWSA Board at the June meeting for the final location of the waterline,” Mawyer said. The project has an estimated cost of $31 million and may be further informed by the completion of a master plan for water infrastructure. Second shout-out goes to the JMRL Friends of the Library In today's second Patreon-fueled shout-out! Lovers of used books rejoice! The Friends of the Jefferson Madison Regional Library is back again with their annual Spring Book Sale opening this Saturday through Sunday, April 10! The Friends of the Library sale will once again take place at Albemarle Square Shopping Center from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day. There’s a special preview for members tomorrow from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. and there’s still time to volunteer! Visit jmrlfriends.org to learn more! See you there! Planning for additional homes and businesses in northern Albemarle The RWSA Board of Directors were also briefed on whether there is enough capacity in Albemarle’s northern growth area to support additional homes such as at the University of Virginia’s North Fork Discovery park. There are also hundreds of homes coming online at Brookhill, RST Residences, North Fork, and other developments under construction. “What we’re looking at now is that these significant utility demands that are being proposed may force one of two options,” said Jennifer Whitaker, the RWSA’s chief engineer. “One is to accelerate the utility plan or require some phasing so that we don’t have an unmet need in the future.” According to a demand study from July 2020, current demand for the whole system is at 10.4 million gallons a day (MGD) and capacity can provide a safe yield of 12.8 MGD. “Every ten years we try to take a very strong look at what we know as a community about growth and development and use within our community and then we also take a look at what’s going on in our reservoirs,” Whitaker said. “We try to look at how the raw water supply and the finished supply match up.”Whitaker said there is enough water through 2060 as long as several parts of the Community Water Supply Plan are built by 2035. They are construction of a pipeline to connect the South Fork Rivanna and Ragged Mountain Reservoir and the raising of the pool at the Ragged Mountain Reservoir. Northern Albemarle is served by the North Fork Rivanna Water Treatment Plant which Whitaker said can effectively treat one million gallons a day. There’s a demand of about a half million gallons a day. The RWSA is planning to decommission the plant but has to first connect that area to water from the South Fork Rivanna Water Treatment Plant.  “Some of the growth demand at the North Fork Research Park and another northern Albemarle areas, the need has picked up and we’re now looking at that plan and trying to figure out how to sequence it to meet that need,” Whitaker said. Wastewater flows via gravity to the Moores Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant and Whitaker said improvements to what’s known as the Powell Creek Interceptor are currently slated for some time between 2045 and 2065. “As we evaluate future growth in this area we’re looking at potentially having to accelerate that as well,” Whitaker said.Whitaker said the RWSA is working with the University of Virginia Foundation and the county as a rezoning for the North Fork park makes its way through the approvals process. They’ve asked for a maximum potential of 1,400 homes there. UVA has announced that some of these units will count toward UVA President Jim Ryan’s goal to build up to 1,500 affordable housing units. “Ultimately we will be able to serve all of it but the question is how quickly will we allow them to bring that online,” Whitaker said. The other two locations for affordable housing are on Fontaine Avenue at the Piedmont housing site as well as Wertland Street. There was no action at the meeting, but certainly a lot to pay attention to into the future.Support Town Crier Productions!Special announcement of a continuing promo with Ting!
