The future is now Sharon Hart thinks you need a life coach. In fact, she thinks anyone with a heartbeat needs a life coach—herself included. “It was one of the best experiences, having my own life coach,” she says. A Los Angeles transplant, Hart hired a coach as she climbed the ladder at an LA […]

Twenty years of local news and arts in the spotlight

It’s amazing to us that a little less than 13 years ago, we sent a reporter to investigate a pending facelift in Belmont and he came back writing about the neighborhood’s “P.R. problem.” Sheesh, where did that go? These days, the place has an image too hip for its own good. At least that’s what […]

This week’s feature story on Nelson County butcher Richard Bean fits nicely into the ongoing coverage of local food and drink that we at C-VILLE have been publishing for a number of years now. A lot of it’s been in a celebratory vein: introducing you to Virginia winemakers, giving shout-outs to the restaurants that list […]

Checking in with Sam Bush

Checking in with Sam Bush

What are you working on these days? We’re trying to record over the next month or two. What that’ll look like at first is probably a few demos, before we start putting a lot of time and money into it. We’re really starting from scratch, which is exciting, because there are so many opportunities that […]

Stand up and be counted. When C-VILLE first started reporting on the best of what’s around here, we relied exclusively on our own wit and wisdom—earned from hours spent sitting in a cramped basement! Since then, we’ve gone the full circuit, seeking your insights over ours, dear readers, on an electronic ballot. This year we […]

Certain mysteries remain unsolved, lo these two decades. To wit: Why did local musician Stephen Barling pen his music column under the name Cripsy Duck? (We know, but if we tell you, then we’ll have to serve you with fried rice.) Why do people keep coming back for more once they decide to move away […]

Some bouts mean more than others. The struggle against bulldozers and development is no laughing matter. It concerns the look and temperament of a place, and if a battle is lost, hardly anyone can call for a do-over. What would that even mean? In light of major changes underway in McIntire Park, we consider the […]

Local Food Hub linking farm and table in five counties

Local Food Hub linking farm and table in five counties

Think of the Hub as a missing link. Enthusiasm runs high in these parts for local food—it represents an alternative to the big-box way of doing business, among other much-discussed benefits. But that doesn’t mean it’s always easy for consumers to find or for farmers to market and distribute. To close the gap between supply […]

Twenty years of local news and arts in the spotlight

It’s a matter of precision. With the word “local” at risk of becoming a term as ubiquitous and somewhat meaningless as “green” or “organic,” as this week’s cover story illustrates, we remind you of the specific use of that term when we applied in our cover package from last year, “How local can you go?” […]
