Nearly a year after the Main Street Arena General Manager sent the city a letter complaining about the condition of the crumbling bricks along the building's east side, the walkway has at last been repaired by the city. But who's responsible for paying for the repair is up for dispute.
"We're waiting for the final figure and will be sending a bill to the Arena," says Deputy City Attorney Richard Harris, who expected to receive that information from the Parks and Recreation Department this week.
Arena owner Mark Brown maintains that the City is responsible for maintaining that stretch of bricks and promises to put up a fight.
How do I start trusting my wife again? Three years ago, I caught her (52) having an affair with a 29-year-old aide who came to our house to help with our autistic son.
One of my first questions to her was "What did I fail to give you?" We went the counseling route and, as the months passed, I knew she would text or write him, but I dealt with these things as they came up. She was repentant and wanted to make it work ... and, I love her.
About a year and a half into counseling, I stumbled across another note, this time to a 21-year-old worker with my son. She was having another affair. I left.
She begged me to come back and go back to counseling. I did. The therapist decided she was co-dependent and stopped couple’s counseling to work on her.
So here we are. We appear normal. She won't talk about those days, as she wants to move on. Meanwhile, I have absolutely no trust. I find myself pulling away from her and this marriage I so want to save. She says she loves me, but she said that then, too. I'm not sure where to go from here. Is it just a matter of "time heals all wounds"?– G.(END ITAL)
Time can't heal anything unless the cause of the injur...
The idea behind the Sedona Taphouse is simple: good beer, good food, and a comfortable atmosphere for all.
Although Dish had no luck reaching the owners by presstime, owner Dennis Barbaro recently told local food website The Charlottesville 29 that he "wanted a place that would appeal to women equally as much as men, a place that I would like to go and enjoy quality food and awesome beer and also a place that my wife and her friends would feel equally comfortable.
The upscale brew pub, which is slated to open on Millmont Street (right behind Barracks Road Shopping Center) in the former Millmont Grille location in the first week of June, will be Barbaro’s second Sedona Taphouse. The first, located in Midlothian, won two 2012 Best of Virginia awards in Virginia Living magazine’s – a first place for Best Overall Bar, and a second place for Best Place to Buy Beer.
The Charlottesville location promises to follow this successful model, with a rotating list of over fifty local and international craft beers on tap, and nearly ten times as many bottled offerings, as well as an extensive wine list, and hand crafted martinis.
The food side of things will be captained by executive chef Jordan Clegger, formerly of eclectic Richmond eatery, Mosaic Restaurant.
Though Barbaro is a...
Get ready, Nation. Funny-man Stephen Colbert, host of Comedy Central's The Colbert Report, is coming to Mr. Jefferson's University to deliver the 2013 valediction keynote speech on May 18. But which Colbert will show up? The "well-intentioned, poorly informed high-status idiot" he plays on the show or the guy who, along with his UVA alum wife, Evelyn McGee Colbert, funded a new Arts Scholars program in the UVA College of Arts & Sciences? Maybe both.
Certainly, the former Daily Show correspondent, and Hampden-Sydney College alum (which he attended before transferring to Northwestern University) is unpredictable, having famously lambasted President George W. Bush at a 2006 White House Correspondents' Association Dinner, run for president in 2008, and appeared before Congress in 2010 to testify, in character, about immigration reform.
As far as Colbert's UVA connections go, we have his wife to thank. She graduated in 1985, with a double-major in drama and English and performed at the Heritage Repertory Theatre. Outside of that, Colbert's other nod to Jefferson came in 2004, when the Daily Show team published America (The Book): A Citizen's Guide to Democracy Inaction, which had an introduction said to be written by Thomas Jefferson.
"I'm thrilled that Colbert is our speaker," says Priya Vithani, graduation committee chair for the class of 2013. "This has been a long anticipated event, and our class...
