2 Stockley Gardens Art Festival Celebrates 30th Anniversary May 17 & 18 in Norfolk NORFOLK, Va. (April 2014) Since 1984, Hope House Foundation has hosted the Stockley Gardens Arts Festival, a two-day event featuring more than 120 artists displaying and selling their works. This year s spring Stockley Garden Arts Festival will mark the event s 30th anniversary, and the entire community is getting behind the show to celebrate. In addition to great art and music, we are expanding the festival with performance and visual art installations from local artists along the beautiful Hague to the Chrysler Museum of Art, said Elena Montello, festival director. We ve gotten support from our sponsors, TowneBank, the city of Norfolk, artists, musicians, businesses and our neighbors to make this festival truly remarkable. Also along the Hague will be the Chrysler Museum Mobile Glass Studio and the Culinary Institute of Virginia with live artful demonstrations. Stockley Gardens Park provides a unique atmosphere for the festival with its garden setting in the heart of the historic district in Ghent. The festival attracts more than 25,000 people who enjoy the art, live music, an array of food and the community atmosphere every spring and fall. Artists come from across the United States and as far away as California to participate in the festival. The spring festival will be held May 17 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on May 18 from noon to 5 p.m. The judge for this year s festival is Elliott H. King, Ph.D., assistant professor of Modern and Contemporary Art History at Washington and Lee University. A Colorado native educated at the Courtauld Institute of Art (London, England) and the University of Essex (Colchester, England), Dr. King curated the critically acclaimed exhibition, Dalí: The Late Work (2010), at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, which attracted 270,000 visitors. He was also guest curator for Frida and Diego: Passion, Politics, and Painting (2013), the largest exhibition of the combined art of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera ever assembled also at the High Museum of Art. Art winners will be announced during The Art Party on Saturday, May 18 from 5 to 7 p.m. Admission is free. And, to celebrate the 30th Anniversary, the Wax- ing Poetics, one of the region s favorite indie rock bands will perform. The event includes a cash bar with wine and beer from O Connor Brewery and a chance to rekindle friendships from the last three decades. Local rock fans still hear Norfolk s own Waxing Poetics on area and satellite rock radio with their biggest hit, Baby Jane. Born from the post-new Wave scene in the clubs of Norfolk and Virginia Beach, the Waxing Poetics were bright stars in the fertile local music scene of the mid-late 80s. While popular at home, with frequent sold-out shows at the Boathouse, they were propelled to greater success though their three widely available albums, hundreds of gigs at colleges and clubs up and down the East Coast and beyond, tirelessly promoted and managed by late Tidewater radio maverick Carol Taylor. They officially split in 1992, but have remained a strong draw over the past twenty-plus years at occasional reunion gigs, as well as in the digital realm. Festival Music Schedule on the main stage: SATURDAY, MAY a.m. Logan Vath Singer/Songwriter 11:30 a.m. Scott Slay Bluegrass 1 p.m. Sunny & Gabe Funky Electro Pop 3 p.m. DJ P & Mr. T Retro New Wave 5 p.m. Waxing Poetics Indie Rock SUNDAY, MAY 18 Noon Jim Newsome Quartet Jazz played the first festival 1:30 p.m. The Bartones 60s Rock and Soul 3:30 p.m. Time and the Avenger 1984 Theme Featuring Andi Helfant-Frye Another new element is Fork Art. Twelve area chefs have been recruited by food writer and editor Patrick Evans-Hylton to be the focus of a piece of art with their signature dish. These twelve artistic interpretations from local artists will be auctioned off during the show. The works of art will be displayed in the restaurants the week before the show. Participating chefs include: Brad Kelley, Salacia; Rodney Eihorn, Terrapin; Jerry Weihbrecht, Zoes; Mike Farrell, Still; John Mannino, Mannino s; Todd Jurich, Todd Jurich s Bistro; Sydney Meers, Stove; Ed Storey, Bardo; Kenny Sloane, Jr., Fin; Harper Bradshaw, Harper s Table; Scott Simpson, Founders Inn; and Patrick Evans-Hylton, Coastal Virginia. The 30th Stockley Gardens Arts Festival is sponsored by TowneBank, Mancon, Southern Fiat of Norfolk, Millers Neighborhood Market, Capital Group, Ghent Business Association, QVC, Inc., James and Dianna O Brien, VEER, WNIS-WTAR, WHRO Public Media, Coastal Virginia Magazine and BOB-FM. Proceeds from the Stockley Gardens Arts Festivals support the programs of Hope House Foundation, the only organization in Virginia that provides support for people with developmental disabilities exclusively in their own homes. The spring and fall festivals, the largest fundraiser for the organization, generates $80,000 that is used to provide necessities for the people who receive services such as assistance with food, medical expenses, dental care, clothing and housing. Since 1964, Hope House Foundation has worked on the frontlines of the battle for independence, community inclusion and true citizenship for people with developmental disabilities. The organization provides individualized supported-living services for adults exclusively in their own homes or apartments. Currently, it serves 123 people in Norfolk, Portsmouth, Chesapeake, and Virginia Beach. Hope House is known as an innovator and leader in the field, and in 2008, it received the American Association for Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities national award for full community inclusion. In 2012, it was named ANCOR Foundation s Service Provider of the Year. For more information, visit hope-house.org. Advertise in The Downtowner.

4 Off The Beaten Path With Jack Armistead While riding home from school with Matthew Rose, my youngest grandson, I commented on how pretty some of the trees looked this spring. Did you know that trees can talk? I asked. Matthew just gave that look of Sure, granddad. Trees can t talk.. I told Matthew to google talking trees and surely he would find one. Sure enough. If you google talking trees you will find out for yourself that trees can talk. They ve been talking for thousands of years but we just haven t been listening. This from Candice Gaukel Andrews on The Good Nature Travel blog: If you ve ever walked in a forest or a grove on a breezy or windy day, you ve probably experienced that bit of an unsettling feeling that says to you that the trees are talking above your head. With every moan and retort of the wood, you d almost swear that you could hear rumblings. Much like the trees in the film the Wizard of Oz that get annoyed with Dorothy after she picks an apple from one of them and then they begin to throw apples back at her, the trees surrounding you on your walk seem to be whispering to each other about the propriety of your presence. Turns out that your intuition may not be so far from the truth. Scientists are now discovering that plants have similar senses to ours and that they talk to each other not through their roots, but as we do: through the air. Hmmm. I recommend that you read her entire article at this website: nathab.com/the-trees-are-talking/ Thank you, Candice. Plants are joining the conversation as well. This from Kat McGowan at the Wired website: Up in the northern Sierra Nevada, the ecologist Richard Karban is trying to learn an alien language. The sagebrush plants that dot these slopes speak to one another, using words no human knows. Karban, who teaches at the University of California, Davis, is listening in, and he s beginning to understand what they say. See the entire article at: com/2013/12/secret-language-of-plants/ In 1989, this article was published by the Deseret News: Physicist Ed Wagner says he has found evidence that trees talk to each other in a language he calls W-waves. If you chop into a tree, you can see that adjacent trees put out an electrical pulse, said Wagner. This indicates they communicate directly. Explaining the phenomenon, Wagner pointed to a blip on a strip-chart recording of the electrical pulse. It put out a tremendous cry of alarm, he said. The adjacent trees put out smaller ones. An abstract of his research was published in Northwest Science magazine, put out by the Northwest Scientific Association at Washington State University in Pullman, Wash. People have known there was communication between trees for several years, but they ve explained it by the chemicals trees produce, Wagner said. But I think the real communication Of Course Trees Can Talk! is much quicker and more dramatic than that, he said. These trees `know within a few seconds what is happening. This is an automatic response. Wagner has measured the speed of W- waves at about 3 feet per second through trees and about 15 feet per second through the air. After doing research on the internet to see if trees really can talk, I told Matthew I would be getting back to him on the subject. Based on the research in this column I can now say this: Yes, Matthew. Trees can talk.

7 Bobby Brown Celebrates His Sister s 90th Birthday Bob, Edith s daughter Diane and Bob s wife Dottie take a break after serving a sumptuous lunch to Edith and the birthday revelers. Edith and Bob enjoy the pleasure of each other s company. By Gary Ruegsegger Downtowner Contributing Editor Even as a child, Bobby Brown was always full of surprises. Just ask his big sister Edith Coker. Recently the 1950 Maury graduate and his lovely wife Dottie (curiously a Granby grad) surprised his sister with a visit to her 90th birthday party. In typical Brown fashion, they brought both birthday greetings and a sumptuous lunch for Edith and two dozen guests. This was a shock. It s something I ll always remember. I thought I was going to the Red Lobster, said Edith. Bobby looked good, but he s always been handsome. Since he was a little boy, the girls loved him. In their younger days, Bobby starred in football at Maury and Edith sold tickets to see the stars at the Roxy Theater on Granby Street. Our readers may know Bobby better as the eminent Dr. Robert S. Brown, MD., noted psychiatrist and beloved UVA professor. However, Edith remembers him in rags, with a stick as a rifle, playing soldier in Lamberts Point. Dr. Brown still recalls standing in Gray s Pharmacy clutching Edith s hand when he heard the news of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. He will always be her little brother and she will always be his big sister. Young Bobby always dreamed of being a soldier, but he never dreamed the battles he would eventually fight. Nine years ago, Dr. Robert S. Brown gave up his successful medical practice in Charlottesville and started treating combat veterans from Afghanistan and Iraq at Fort Lee s Kenner Health Clinic in Petersburg. At the clinic, Dr. Brown uses individual and group therapy to battle combatinduced Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. He teaches his patients to strengthen their attachment to one another and their families. He is currently writing a book, Sacred Ground, on their experiences. At the birthday party, he read sections of the book to Edith and her guests. His audience was spellbound. Recently Dr. Brown underwent heart surgery and Edith is battling cancer. But nothing slows down Bobby and his big sister. Edith could always jitterbug with the best of them and today she s turned her rhythmic talents to square dancing. The good doctor is back treating veterans and his book will soon be heading to the presses. Sometime during the party, a photo of a bikini-clad Edith turned up and raised eyebrows. A wandering photographer snapped the picture at the beach front in the forties. While the men stared, the ladies envied Edith s beauty. The party was filled with smiles, hugs, kisses and memories. Yet in all the hoopla, you could still see the clear eyes and pure heart of that little boy grasping his big sister s hand in Gray s Pharmacy on Dec. 7, Happy Birthday, Edith. This 1940s photo of Edith even raised her eyebrows at her 90th birthday party. May, 2014 The Downtowner - Norfolk, Virginia 7

Cabooses were used on every freight train until the 1980s, when safety laws requiring the presence of cabooses and full crews were relaxed. The caboose provided the train crew with a shelter at the rear of the train. The crew could exit the train for switching or protect the rear of the train when stopped. Cabooses have become a rare sight. This caboose did stay overnight but was nowhere to be seen the next day. (Photo By Jack Armistead) 10 The Downtowner - Norfolk, Virginia May, 2014

14 Harborfest Set June 6-8 With Distinctive Entertainment The 38th Annual Norfolk Harborfest is slated for June 6 - June 8 in Downtown Norfolk s Town Point Park. An array of national entertainment is scheduled to perform. All concerts are free and open to the public. For three memorable days the Norfolk waterfront transforms into an exciting playground for people of all ages. The historic festival offers a weekend packed with exciting activities on land and sea. The festival includes tall ships and the Parade of Sail, the largest fireworks show on the East Coast, local, regional and national entertainment, family activities, unique and unsual performances, water activities and much more. On Friday, June 6 at 6 p.m. Langhorne Slim performs on the Budweiser main stage. It will be a spirited, inspired slice of real rock n roll. The music drives, but there s not loss of subtlety. The band will be followed by The Head & The Heart at 8:30 p.m. This Seattle group went from playing open mic nights to selling out and headlining shows in prestigious venues. Also on Friday on the Boathouse Stage, Matrimony performs at 7:15 p.m. The group is fronted by the husband and wife duo of Ashlee Hardee Brown and Jimmy Brown. This Charlotte, N.C. based band are accompanied by Hardee Brown s talented brothers, Jordan and CJ, resulting in an intuitive collaboration that is both immediately affective and utterly their own. On Saturday, June 7, The Last Bison performs on the Budweiser main stage at 5:45 p.m. The Last Bison s live show transport audiences from urban music halls to another, less familiar, era. Rich melodies accent unabashedly spiritual lyrics. The Spinners take the main stage at 8 p.m.saturday, June 7. This headliner band has never lost its universal appeal. Throughout the years they have sold millions of records and topped both the Pop and R & B charts with smash hits like I ll Be Around and Then Came You. Their song In a Moment is a classic. At 6:45 on the Boathouse stage, Apache Relay will be featured. They can claim accolades such as opening for Mumford & Sons and hitting such festivals as Bonnaroo, the Newport Folk Festival and more. This is a band eager to push past their boundaries. On Sunday, June 8, Blackberry Smoke takes the main stage. They have toured with befriended idols such as The Marshall Tucker Band, ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd and George Jones. On the Boathouse stage at 3:15 p.m. Sunday, Spirit Family Reunion performs. It s the type of music that blurs the line between past and present so thoroughly, and so deftly, that time feels irrelevant. Lawn chairs and blankets are welcome. Coolers, food and soft drinks are permitted. No alcohol or glass is permitted. Food and alcohol will be available for purchase during the festival. Norfolk Festevents is a private notfor-profit organization dedicated to producing city celebrations including premier concerts, festivals, ship visits, and special events for the residents and guests of Hampton Roads.

15 Hampton Roads Biggest Born & Raised Know-It-All! The Downtowner Answerman Dear Downtowner Answerman, I was driving through the Midtown Tunnel to Portsmouth recently and I noticed many lightbulbs are out and it s difficult to see in some areas of the tunnel. Since we re getting bilked with tolls, why can t these people in charge of the tunnel change some lightbulbs? Left in the Dark, Hampton Boulevard Dear Left in the Dark, With all the money they are collecting with the tolls, you would think surely they would be able to change some lightbulbs. I urge readers to call the tunnel folks if they see any lightbulbs out. It s time to finally see the light. The light at the end of the tunnel. Dear Downtowner Answerman, I was in one of those fancy grocery stores recently over in Ghent and the lines to check out were ridiculously long. Many of the checkout lines had no cashiers.

Did I cause his stuttering? How can I help? Information for parents about children and stuttering is now available in a new 16-minute video titled, 7 Tips for Talking with the Child Who Stutters. It can be found at In the video, four speech-language experts talk about how to promote easier talking as they interact with their preschool-age children. The professionals offer simple tips that parents can begin to use immediately. The so-called wait and see approach, advocated by some, is a bitter pill for a parent to swallow when they find their child struggling to speak, said Jane Fraser, president of the Stuttering Foundation. Parents often think it is their fault and wonder what they have done wrong. This should help ease their fears while focusing their efforts on doing things that will help the child right away, added Fraser. The video features some of the world s leading hands-on therapists working with preschool children who stutter. They include speech-language consultants Frances Cook, MSc, MRCSLT (Hons), Cert CT (Oxford), and Willie Botterill, MSc, MRCSLT, Cert CT, Elaine Kelman, MSc, MRCSLT, Cert CBT, from the Michael Palin Centre for Stammering Children in London; Lisa Scott, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, of The Florida State University s School of Communication Science and Disorders; and Ellen Kelly, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, of Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. Some books and DVDs produced by the 66-yearold nonprofit Stuttering Foundation are available free on the Foundation s web site under the resources tab and on YouTube.

18 The Blotter With Eric Flax By way of introduction, I am Sergeant Eric Flax and I have been in law enforcement for 23 years, the last 16 and a half years have been with the Norfolk Police Department. Since being promoted to Sergeant in 2011, I have been assigned to the downtown sector, commonly referred to as the Green Sector since the summer of The idea of The Blotter actually happened by accident over coffee at The Cure and a chance meeting between myself and Jack Armistead. As we talked about what was happening in the Green Sector, he mentioned that he was the editor of The Downtowner newspaper and I remarked that I thought it would be a good idea to write a column on behalf of the police department as a way to reach citizens and businesses in the downtown area and beyond. It was not long before this sidebar comment started to take shape and become a reality. With that being said, I wanted to share with you my thoughts on what I envision The Blotter to be. I had the idea to share crime tips, suggestions to make your quality of life safer, mention some of the services that The Norfolk Police offers, and to create an atmosphere of exchanges of ideas and information between the citizens, business, and the police department in a format that was somewhat new to both. I hope to have a new submission each month and I have included my address and encourage each of you who read this to send me an with a question or comment and I will try each week to pick a question and address it in The Blotter. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Jack Armistead who was gracious enough to help make this happen. I also wanted to thank Norfolk Police Chief Michael Goldsmith and the Norfolk Police Department Command Staff who supported me in this vision to reach the citizens and businesses of Downtown Norfolk in a medium that we were not currently utilizing. My staff and I are always here to assist. I look forward to hearing from you and I hope to see you in the Green.
