President Obama in CHO yesterday. A combination of festival and lockdown but naturally it’s best if it feels like a festival.
Andy Lofton of Obamarocks.org on hand with his product.
I’m guessing this fellow was not a supporter.
A perimeter was established.
Not a good day to cross the railroad tracks.
Watchers were watching.
It takes a village to protect and coordinate for a Presidential trip.
We have the product but we have not had quality creative people.–Susan Payne – Payne, Ross & Associates
Hear the pitch, hear the clients offer feedback and advice to the Creatives. Hear about placemaking, branding, telling the story, creating the creative, pushing product to screens, authentic experience, extracting more time and money from tourists. Hear political correctness go a round with the copywriter…
Shocking, and I’ll let you go, the hour is late, but I’ll tell you, your number one tourism attraction that comes up from all the statewide surveys that are done is birding, isn’t that surprising?–Susan Payne
My one fervent hope. Please please please do away with the “home of the Cavaliers” sign at the airport. New slogan, new sign:
Charlottesville-Albemarle, for the birds….

Charlottesville was established as a gridded town plan from the start. Dr. Thomas Walker was assigned by the County as Trustee, and a two acre public square was set aside for the courthouse at the northern edge of the fifty acre town. The site for the courthouse was selected on a hillside directly above the gridded village, several blocks above Three Notch’d Road or the main street of town. Over time, business activities around the Court Square included taverns, tailors, milliners, a printing shop, a gunsmith, and a jeweler. A portion of the original courthouse (1803) still stands as a part of the current complex of structures. The original twenty-eight block grid corresponds to the following existing streets: Sixth and McIntire on the east and west respectively, Jefferson and South on the north and south. A plan from 1818 indicated east/west streets as 66 feet in width, while north/south streets as 33 feet wide; this plan also indicated a two block by seven block annexation added directly to the north of the original grid.– Ken Schwartz
