Twenty years of local news and arts in the spotlight

We cannot deny it. We’ve picked up some trade secrets in the past 20 years—at least as far as living local goes. But we’ve also done more than our fair share to make sure some things, like the City Market, remain well-known, public treasures. Year after year, we have compiled lists of summer must-dos and […]

Twenty years of local news and arts in the spotlight

Is there anything that won’t thrive in Charlottesville? In 24 weeks of looking back through our 20-year archives, the answer seems to be no. Whether it’s local rock or a rock-hard will to reconfigure local buildings and public spaces, people in Charlottesville get things done. Take Jessica Nagle, for instance. Her drive to remake Downtown […]

Twenty years of local news and arts in the spotlight

In covering this town for 20 years, we’ve seen a lot of people go through changes. Friendships are made or restored. Folks change jobs or political persuasion. They get famous overnight.
