For details, visit www.ixartpark.org/soul-of-cville.City on alert for fifth anniversary of A12This week marks five years since the Unite the Right rally and violent conflicts in downtown Charlottesville. Yesterday the city sent out a press release stating that there is no “specific credible threat” but that precautions will be taken. “CPD is maintaining a status of heightened situational awareness and monitoring chatter from intelligence sources to be prepared to increase available coverage Downtown and in parks, which can be activated quickly in response to any pop-up emergencies that might occur,” reads that press release.The eastern vehicular crossing of the Downtown Mall at Heather Heyer Way will be closed from Thursday August 11 at 6 p.m. until Sunday morning August 14 at 6:30 a.m. There is a planned event at the Ting Pavilion for Fridays after Five on Friday. No House of Delegates race in 2022If you’re a candidate for the Virginia House of Delegates, it’s now pretty much certain you’ll be on the ballot in 462 days if you get the nomination or otherwise qualify. Judge David Novak of Virginia’s Eastern Federal District Court has dismissed a second lawsuit seeking an election this year. (read the ruling)“Like just about everything else in our society, the unprecedented COVID-19 global pandemic impacted the work of the United States Census Bureau, delaying the sending of the results of the 2020 Census to the states,” states the introduction to Novak’s order to dismiss the case. That delay meant Virginia did not have updated boundaries for the General Assembly or the House of Representatives until the end of 2021. At the time, Richmond attorney Paul Goldman had an active suit against the State Board of Elections arguing that the 2021 elections were unconstitutional because they were based on data from the 2010 Census. After several months of legal proceedings including an appearance before the Fourth Circuit of Appeals, Judge Novak and two other judges ruled that Goldman lacked legal standing to have brought the case. A few days later, Richmond author Jeffrey Thomas Jr. filed a second suit based on Goldman’s main arguments. Novak’s order recounts the long legal saga to this point, including the failure of the Virginia Redistricting Commission to reach consensus on new maps as well as the COVID-related delays.“Because Plaintiff’s attempts to lay blame on Defendants for the delays caused by the unprecedented pandemic fails, Plaintiffs are unable to trace their injuries to Defendants,” Novak writes. Judge Novak’s order is made without prejudice, which means a new suit could be brought, but there are 98 days until election day. Efforts made to crack down on distracted drivers on U.S. 29Vehicular crashes are up on Virginia roads this year and late last month area law enforcement agencies teamed up on to enforce speeding and distracted driving laws on U.S. 29. On July 21, Albemarle County Police, Charlottesville Police, and the University of Virginia police were out in force from the Greene County border to the Nelson County line. “We usually see at least 700,000 vehicles daily on that stretch of roadway,” said Albemarle Master Police Officer Kate Kane. “Consequently it adds up to a lot of crashes unfortunately.” During the one-day initiative on July 21, there were 197 traffic stops and 201 summons were given out. Just over half of those were for speeding. The chances of surviving are dramatically diminished the faster you go.“Logic would tell you that when speed goes up, survivability goes down,” Kane said. “We don’t realize how fragile we are. Even with the seat belts, even with the air bags, even with the best protection technology, we cannot avoid all crashes. If you’re traveling at 75 miles an hour or higher, your body just can’t take that kind of impact.”As of today, there have been 527 fatalities on Virginia roads in 2022 according to a dashboard on the Virginia Department of Transportation’s website. Charlottesville Fire Department to deploy more devices on medical callsSome vehicles used by the Charlottesville Fire Department on medical calls will soon carry additional devices intended to increase the chances of a patient surviving a cardiac arrest. The Department secured $64,000 from a Community Development Block Grant in the last fiscal year to purchase four chest compression devices to assist in the performance of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). They’ll be placed on two fire engines and two ambulances.“Based on Neighborhood Risk Assessment data, residents in all nineteen (19) neighborhoods are expected to benefit from deploying these devices, most notably Tenth and Page, where the data highlights the significant importance of timely interventions,” reads a press release sent out on Friday. The department will also begin to implement video laryngoscopes, which are devices that assist with the intubation of patients. “The [Airtraq] devices have been used in pre-hospital systems and in emergency departments to improve success in airway management,” the release continues. Yesterday was the first day that Scott Carpenter will serve as the Deputy Chief of Operations. According to a July 15 press release, Carpenter has been with the Charlottesville Fire Department for 22 years. Second shout-out: The Plant Northern Piedmont Natives Campaign Since the very beginning of this newsletter, one long-time Patreon supporter has used his shout-out to draw your attention to the work of the Plant Northern Piedmont Natives Campaign. The campaign is a coalition of grassroots partners including motivated citizens and volunteers, partner organizations, and local governments who want to promote the use of native plants.

Penney as public safety operations centerAlbemarle County will move forward with the lease of a former department store at Fashion Square Mall to serve as a new operations facility for fire and police. “It does have a central location, it’s got a very large warehouse, with a great loading dock,” said Lance Stewart, the county’s director of facilities and environmental services.  “All together it's about 33,000 square feet which is almost a third of the J.C. Penney site. On July 20, Supervisors authorized a lease and signaled a willingness to pay over $3 million in capital costs to get it ready for public safety work. “This has been a known and growing need for many years including capital requests that were submitted for new construction in the past but not funded,” said Lance Stewart is the director of the Facilities and Environmental Services Department in Albemarle County. David Puckett, the Deputy Chief of Operations at Albemarle Fire Rescue, reminded Supervisors that they have hired several personnel in recent years to expand capacity. “While the vast majority of those positions are out in the field directly providing service there are a number of administrative positions added to make sure we could successfully on-board, train, and support those personnel long-term.” Puckett said. Puckett said space is full at the county’s offices on Fifth Street Extended.  The Department also now has its own dedicated fleet manager as well as a mechanic to conduct in-house repairs. All that work also requires space, and the J.C. Penney used to have a tire shop. “The lack of a centralized facility has required us to store parts and equipment in fire station closets and storage rooms throughout the county,” Puckett said. “This has resulted in loss productivity. As an example, if a mechanic is out working on a truck only to determine that the part needed to complete the repair is halfway across the county, it requires more time and energy to go get the part before they complete it.”Puckett said stations themselves are not really set up for vehicle repair.Albemarle Police Chief Sean Reeves said more space has also been a capital need requested by law enforcement. “Some of the capital improvement projects from over ten years ago, from two chiefs of police ago, called for a site that we could use to expand stored evidence, store vehicles that are in evidence, and an evidence processing bay that we do not have,” Reeves said. Colonel Reeves said using the J.C. Penney site would cut down on the capital cost to build such a place. He also said the traffic unit would move to the new location, freeing up space at the County Office Building on Fifth Street Extended.“And that space that’s freed up at COB-Fifth, what that would do is go toward supporting the mental health unit, the officers that are going to be picked and selected as staff for the new mental health unit,” Reeves said.  The J.C. Penney site is owned separately from the rest of Fashion Square Mall by a subsidiary of Seminole Trail Properties. Stewart said this use would not preclude redevelopment of the site in the future. The project is also outside of the jurisdiction of the Albemarle Architectural Review Board. The lease would be for ten years with options to extend that as well as to expand to more of the J.C. Penney site in the future. The rent of $558,000 a year is based on $12.50 per square foot, and the rent would increase by 3.5 percent each year. “And I can tell you that having looked at a number of industrial and commercial properties that we thought might be suitable options, that is well below typical for the market,” Stewart said. Final details will be worked out as the lease is negotiated. Supervisor Ned Gallaway lauded staff for negotiating a good price and said this was a good location for this use. “This is an area where the Rio Road Small Area Plan is,” Gallaway said. “When we think of the county investing in this location, we can be a vibrant anchor tenant to an area that needs redevelopment and needs activity.Housekeeping notes for edition #414If you’ve been wondering if there is going to be a summer break for Charlottesville Community Engagement, we’re sort of in it.

The day starts like any other day on the prairie.  Doc Baker is in his office checking on his patients: those who actually need him and those who only want attention. However, his most important patient at the moment is Beth Novak, a women who is 7 months pregnant and lost 2 pregnancies before.   And if that wasn't enough to think about, just before Doc Baker shows up, Stanley Novak, husband to Beth, falls off the roof while preparing the house for the newborn.  A quick examination reveals it to be nothing but by that evening Stanley collapse at the dinner table and Beth finds herself a widow.  Feeling the blame for not identifying the injury, Doc Baker questions his own purpose in Walnut Grove and if even being a doctor is what he wants to continue.  And he bows out, handing his office over to a profit driven, out of town doctor who goes by the name of Doctor Asa Logan.  And when it comes to the patients that actually need his help, his uppity behavior can't be bothered by those who can't afford his help. It's not until Beth Novak starts to have contractions that Doc Baker realizes that his place in Walnut Grove is not out in the fields behind a horse but still in his office caring for the patients that need his care the most.  Where exactly did Doc Baker graduate from medical school? When did the Novak's move to town and take over the old Taylor/Clark/Bowers' places? How come we didn't see Laura at all in this episode?

It all begins with an emotionally unsettling film they have been championing since Sundance featuring another knockout performance by Rebecca Hall and a never creepier Tim Roth (Resurrection). Steve checks out Juliette Binoche as a trucker who gets involved in child trafficking (Paradise Highway) while Erik covers Angourie Rice as an overachieving high schooler trying to sabotage her competition (Honor Society). Zoey Deutsch is an underachieving photo editor who tries to manipulate a fresh grief hashtag in a new satire (Not Okay) and Katie Holmes and Jim Sturgess are forced to white-people-problem their way through the start of the Covid pandemic (Alone Together). Steve also looks at the new animated effort from the other comic book studio (DC League of Super Pets). Finally, the pair heap praise upon the writing/directing effort from B.J. Novak that is certainly one of the strongest surprises of the year.   0:00 - Intro 2:35 - Resurrection 15:23 – Paradise Highway 23:55 - Honor Society 33:04 - Alone Together 44:16 – Not Okay 1:00:47 - DC League of Super Pets 1:09:42 - Vengeance 1:29:10 - Outro

Vengeance follows journalist Ben Manalowitz (B.J. Novak), a self-indulgent writer for the New Yorker, desperate to find an angle that'll let him successfully pivot into podcasting. After a late night call leads him to Texas, and the funeral of Abby Shaw (Loi Tipton) a past hook-up, Ben allows himself to get roped into investigating her death - by her distraught brother Ty (Boyd Holbrook) - in the hopes he can mold the experience into a true-crime show. As writer, director, and star, B. J. Novack leads an eclectic ensemble in surprisingly entertaining a dark comedy with a finely honed satirical edge. The movie's cold opening almost guarantees you won't like Ben. His personality's mostly just vibes and pretentious assumptions. He's never bothered to learn how to be his authentic self. When people try to point out that his detachment holds him back, it goes in one ear, and out the other. So, once he's out of comfort zone, Ben doesn't know how to relate. And his belief that it's everyone else who's out of step leads to hilarious smack downs, rude awakenings, and emotional life lessons. Thankfully, Novack does more than just take potshots at the obsessively ambitious and emotionally disengaged. He's crafted a constantly engaging narrative to mix with his metaphors. Vengeance is both a fish-out-of-water comedy and an intriguing mystery. Along the way, you'll laugh, cringe, and wonder how many times he can miss seeing what's right in front of him.  By turning the true-crime angle into the framing device Novack creates a way to naturally take his lead's worldview with a grain of salt. From the outset, he shapes each character's arc to simultaneously embody and combat people's preconceived notions about one another. Just as soon as you think you know what someone thinks or how they'll behave, Novack throws a curveball. Every passing encounter designed to pull the picture slowly (but not too slowly) into focus. There's never a moment when the cast can phone it in. The film's quips, slick dialogue and surprisingly impactful monologue showcases how the impulse to treat people as caricatures results in squandered moments to connect with one another on a real level.  In a time where it's commonplace to listen with half an ear and keep both eyes trained on a phone, Vengeance pushes its main character onto a path that demands his whole attention.  B. J. Novack makes his directorial debut in full creative control and taking some big swings. Don't be surprised if between the laughs, you end up doing some serious self-refection before all's said and done.  Listen as Ro and Kriss review Vengeance and discuss why its off-kilter story and tight ensemble performances hit just the right note.  Vengeance opens in theaters July 29, 2022 Like what you hear?
