Twenty years of local news and arts in the spotlight

And we’re now 18 weeks into our highly selective tour through the past 20 years of local news and arts in C-VILLE. This week, familiar faces and familiar structures. Some 12 years ago, we reported on what seemed a likely outcome for the four storefronts known collectively now as the Wachovia buildings: demolition. If only! […]

Corrections to the April 28 issue

Due to a reporting error in last week’s cover story, we mistakenly stated that a former Country Vintner employee directs J.W. Sieg’s wine import and distribution business. Derek Robinson, formerly of the Country Vintner, is a wine consultant for J.W. Sieg, but the business is under the direction of J.W. Sieg Vice President Smith Williams. […]

Twenty years of local news and arts in the spotlight

And we just keep going in our highly selective tour through the past 20 years of local news and arts in C-VILLE. This week, a “green” story from a perhaps unexpected source: Dominion Power, whose Lake Anna nuclear facility, merely 30 miles from town, creeps closer and closer to expansion. Also, this week, remembrances of […]

Twenty years of local news and arts in the spotlight

Though their cover dominance might suggest that in 20 years C-VILLE has covered nothing artsy but Dave Matthews Band, we want to set the record straight right here and now: Once in a while we have reported on other pressing cultural matters, including the controversy over the state song and the 20 minutes that Georgia […]

Twenty years of local news and arts in the spotlight

We’re now almost a quarter of the way through our highly selective tour through the past 20 years of local news and arts in C-VILLE. And we’ve started to notice a trend: The more things change, the more they stay the same—at least in the past decade or so. The Cavaliers get a new basketball […]

Clarification from March 17 issue

A photo caption in the March 17 cover story [“Battling again”] misidentified the location where Orange County Supervisor Teri Pace was photographed. The photo was taken at a site Pace suggests would be a good alternative for the proposed Wal-Mart.

Correction from the March 3 issue

A sidebar with the feature story in the March issue of Abode misstated the name of a partner in the River’s Edge development. He is Chris Hays. Also, the sidebar incorrectly made a connection between the Rivanna Collaborative and the RiverBluff development, which is actually a project of Richard Price, Frank Smith and Jeff Smith.
