Congratulations, Kristen!! You are perfect for that! I’m so very happy for you. What great news!
What's the catch?
I natived there !! Lovely Market in best county !! Of course .
Wishing you the best, Kristen. That place is a big and very special part of my childhood! I am the granddaughter of Julius Craig, Sr. Of the Craig’s Store Rd in front of your business.
Kristen, a note from a local: please be all inclusive to a majority of your clientele. Not every one wants to be a part of the Saturday night wine fest and spend gobs of money on food I could get in Charlottesville. Rather consider a convenience store atmosphere that would be a great go to for those that don't want to drive back into town to get cigarettes, milk, bread , toiletries ect. Breakfast sandwiches like the well known trading post would also be a nice additive. I spend most of money in that store since there is literally nothing here in batesville. A 12 oz. Coke was 1 dollar the one and only time I stopped in. I also noticed the batesville store served more of a wealthy older generation rather than everyday folks that live here and still actually work a 40 hour work week. Not everyone in this community is old with time and money to burn. Not everyone that resides in batesville is "green" . If you provide the community with convenience, I will provide you with my dollars. Otherwise I will continue to utilize the trading post and continue to drive right past the batesville store .
A frustrated, forgotten local
Good luck congrats
Good Luck and Best Wishes on a super great venture!!! I cannot wait to visit and enjoy myself in that slice of heaven!!!
Has anyone addressed the issue of traffic congestion on those Saturday night get together. It’s a nightmare, we can only hope emergency vehicles would not be needed on Craig’s Store Road. Cars are parked everywhere along the sides of the road.
Congratulations kristen!!! You will be fabulous!
I was born and raised a few miles up the road from the store at that time it was called Page's Store but moved from the area about 40 years ago. My family all my aunt and uncles families and my grandparents frequented the store back in those days. Everything you needed for everyday living could be found on the shelves. Times were hard very hard when me and my brother were very young and money for groceries and necessities were very bleak at times on one of these occasions my father went to Mr.Page with a cloth sack that contained 15 dollars in silver nickels that had been handed down through the family dad explained his trouble to Mr. Page and asked if he would hold the nickels in exchange for some needed groceries until he received his next paycheck. Mr. Page didn't hesitate when dad got his paycheck he paid the bill and Mr. PAGE returned the nickels. When me my brother and cousins were old enough to ride bicycles up and down the roads ( it was safe back then) we would always have a little change to stop a grab a soda or some penny candy. I still frequent Batesville to visit with family and spend a little time at Wild Rose Cemetery to visit dad and my grandparents but haven't been in the store in years because after stopping by there and seeing that the store didn't resemble anything from my childhood and teenage years upset me so bad I swore to never stop again. Change is good but if the store could convert back a little to the Old Country atmosphere the original Batesville community people who's families have lived in Batesville for generation after generation and not just cater to the transplants that moved into the area it would make a world of difference to the original Batesville community.
Good luck on your adventure

Please stop sharing stories not local. It’s very confusing.
Slow news times in C’Ville someone steal a statue or something.
An incredible story of heroism & all the responses are “stop sharing news that’s not local”. ?! Really??! How about applauding the fact that this lady is a brave warrior? Better yet, let’s all pick up on imitating her selflessness!
I wish everyone was like that.. instead the film everything. So so so sad
An excellent way to SEE the ‘zip code’ driver of health resources and health outcomes disparities is the map at County Health Rankings: www.countyhealthrankings.org/reports/state-reports/2019-virginia-report See that the many counties south of the James river have much WORSE health resources and health outcomes than north of the James river. Yet Charlottesville people call all these rural folks rednecks, ignorant, ’voting against their own interests’, ’deplorables‘ (Hilary Clinton), ‘clinging to their religion and their guns’ (Barack Obama), and racists. Paternalism is hateful even when - or especially when - well educated, affluent elites should be genuinely curious, compassionate, and knowledgeable. For example, calling there rural folx ‘racist’ is beyond ignorant on the part of Charlottesville elites, because many of the counties south of the James river have a plurality POCz (People of Colors), and HIGHER proportions of POCz than Charlottesville (MUCH higher, in fact). And to put icing on that cake of paternalism and ignorance Charlottesville and UVA elites DUMP their filthy, stank, rotting, diseased, polluting, toxic waste into those counties! City elites - including the ‘climate action’ elites - seldom wonder or care where their MOUNTAINS of waste go. Because it they did care they would demand that it all stay in City limits or on Grounds! Rather than committing immense environmental racism as they currently do.
while a student there, my daughter narrowly missed being hit when crossing the street on grounds.
These kids have a 200 hundred thousand education and a ten cent brain. Look both ways before entering a cross walk and take the ear buds out you're ears.
Yes and they can pass out lollipops to all the kids who can't look up from there phone before crossing the street.
I mean if the students didnt just walk out in front of cars maybe they wouldn't need extra crossing guards for COLLEGE STUDENTS
Don't forget to hold their hands!
They should start ticketing people that don’t obey signals— drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians.
Seriously......are they in elementary school...crossing guards really.
Some common sense has to be exercised by the students. Multiple times I have driven through that area with a student walking along the street, only to take a hard 90 degree turn into the crosswalk without so much as looking or giving any indication they were about to walk out in the road..... With me driving 10 feet away towards said crosswalk.
Yes they have the right of way.... But that doesn't help when they're pealing you off the pavement.
They need one in front of the hospital!!
They have their faces in a phone and walk right out in front of vehicles.
Kristy be careful when you go back to McCormick. Theres been alot of students coming from that library near the loading docks and they will just come out of nowhere without even looking up.
If they put the cell phones down and watched what they was doing they won't need them. They all act like they own everything until it comes to an accident. Then it wasn't my fault. ( insert eye roll here)
Ooooo k. If they quit busting out in the road and check both ways first then that would really help. Do they teach common sense in college??
I can’t believe the comments here ! What snark ! Isn’t it worth your kids’ safety to do anything & everything we can to save a life ??!! Yes .., I get it ... ‘they should be looking’... but that will be cold comfort if someone you love is hit !!! And how many of you are still holding your cellphone in your hand as YOU are driving ??!! Just might not always be the walker’s fault !!
Just hold a class on what this means
Yet another "obstacle" being removed for this generation of kids...a skill they should've learned at at 4 or 5 is being done for them at 20. This generation will never understand situational awareness at this rate.
Wow. Ignorance runs amok in Charlottesville.
These students want to be taken seriously and treated like adults? I would ask that they start acting like adults to start with. These snowflakes need to have their hands held while crossing the street while their betters are putting on the uniform to serve this country...pa lease.
If they could just get the pedestrians to get there heads out of there screens and pay attention to where they are going that would really help.
Get hit = free tuition....some of the students goals
Seriously tell the pedestrians to stay off of the cell phones while walking across intersections. Take off the headphones too. Just saying as a former ER worker
Seriously, students can't walk across the street at cross walks by themselves?
Love this place! Just had their brisket this weekend!
A couple of pounds goes with me almost every time I drive out to McHenry Illinois. Plus extra Hogfire and especially Hellfire sauces. Great stuff! My daughter loves the meat and Hogfire. Her husband is really into the Hellfire.
I love how 29 is posting this and showing this story but when told about a local woman who lost her life and left behind 6 girls and the little baby she was pregnant with is currently fighting for her life in the NICU at Uva they didn’t want to help that local family. but this SCAM gets a headline!!! SHAME ON YOU WVIR NBC29

Being bullied myself, I can understand wanting to die. You want to die when you cant take it anymore. It is a curse that follows you through your entire life. People, think before you put another human being through this! What is it all for? This little darling does not deserve this life.

Gotta fight.whether u take a whippn or not.everyday.fight back!!
I'll bet. There's a city to plunder and sister cities to visit.
No no no no
Charlottesville city government will never get better until the have a government like every other large city in Virginia. An at large elected Mayor, and council members elected by their district. Until then, it will be more of the same. Mob rule deciding all elections and no true representation by neighborhoods.
Even my new home county of King William, population 16,000, has 5 Board members elected by their districts... 🤣
The LACK of election districts in the City (the way most Counties and Cities have them!) is an artifact of the 'Jim Crow' era City Charter! It is shocking that anyone thinks that every Councilor can represent every neighborhood of the City! Only some sort of AUTHORITARIAN ('machine politic') or ELITIST could actually believe that.
I admire her for standing on her cankles...er, principles...
Didn't she tell Bellamy during his little "farewell" that she would fear for her life without him on council? Or something to that effect? What changed? Or maybe she's just full of sh*t.
You need a mayor the represents everyone .
she’s not the one
Please noooooo. We need someone for everyone.
Oh, brother! But then again, Madame Mayor has unfinished work to do. She's been working on getting surplus funds spent to raise the salaries of women of color who are city employees, like herself, who are allegedly underpaid for solely that reason (?) -- and thanks to the recently passed bill in the General Assembly, she'll soon be able to follow through with raising the salaries of allegedly underpaid city councilors....like, uh, like herself. Nah. No possible conflict of interest here.
My personal favorite NW quote; "I am in a position to make sure that work continues and I am in a position nationally and internationally to continue this conversation in 100% truth,” Walker said.
No. Really? Just after her friend quid-pro-quo Hudson in Richmond just put in legislation for local city council raises. Naw! Say it ain’t so!

Congratulations! County is stepping out on these conversations. The one convening at the Lewis and Clark Center was so full there was no room to squeeze in anyone else. Thank you County supervisors, and County staff, particularly Siri Russell.
Hopefully one of the history discussion will be to discuss why the County allows 'trash haulers' to take County-generated waste to dump - stank, filthy, nasty, diseased, toxic, polluting waste! - in poor and working class rural communities! Many of those communities of POCz (People of Colorz). This is part of the County's history of environmental racism harmful to POCz and to poor and working class people, particularly poor and working class RURAL people. Because THAT IS WHERE County waste goes.
A burial preserve in Tennessee offers a “simpler, more natural” way of burying the dead: no casket, no embalming, and no cost. With the average funeral costing between $7,000 and $12,000, would you consider a "green" cemetery if it were an option in central Virginia? ... See MoreSee Less
Sure,I don't want my death to be a financial burden to my family.
I want to be cremated anyway, so yeah...as long as it's not in a flood zone.
Why not!! From ashes we come, to ashes we go...❤
No thanks. I’m being taken to a taxidermist when I die.
May have to go back to putting a bell at each grave 😉
This is the way should be
In my youth I remember when the family built a wooden box dressed up their loved ones held a service at home and buried them all the same day .and their graves are still there. Right beside the 10 thousand dollar graves. And no one can tell the difference
Melissa Sutherland Sipe
No because you are contaminating the soil and eventually the water supply when you put dead people ashes or body in the group without protecting the environment lol green by foot!
I want to be planted with one of those trees, its a new thing.I would love that! They put your ashes in with a tree and plant it..
My granddaughters would love it..
I'm being cremated as stipulated in my living will. I don't want my family feeling tied down to a cemetery simply because I'm buried there. Cremation is cheaper and my wife can take my insurance money and get on with her life along with my kids.
That’s what my husband and I want
Yes but that's also why I will be cremated
All I want is a pine box I want to be buried on my land in the ground no embalming. 🙂
I absolutely love this! If I had it my way I'd be buried in my backyard garden next to my furbaby ❤
Oh my some one said a word that hurts my little feelings. But yet I can listen to it on any hip hop song recorded. Stop letting a simple word affect your mindset.
Seriously does that word stop you from living your life? Does it stop you from making money? Does it stop you from raising your kids?
If your so weak minded that a word can through your whole train of thought off you have much bigger issues
WVIR NBC29 what's with all the syndicated news lately? I follow you over the Daily Regress because you have carried the local headlines instead of whatever they feel like reprinting from the AP.
WVIR NBC29 Waiting for your article about racism at UVA or are you guys ok with certain racism?
Why would they be upset? If he or she is gonna use the word then they should know exactly how and what it means
Never fails to amaze me how white folk can justify using the N word.
Most of the logic surrounds the point that if black people say it, anybody can say it. Like when I ask your wife to suck my dick. That doesn’t offend you because you say it all the time, right?
What if they were making fun of a racist like, "lol you can't even say it right!"
He's right, get that teacher the pass. Problem solved.
Boo hoo hoo
I’m so sad that my kids have to be raised in a society with you idiots!
The child shouldn't have been using the word at all and wouldn't need to be corrected. What was the patents teaching the child at home?
Man, some of these racist comments make me very glad I don’t live in Charlottesville anymore. Let me tell you one thing, tearing down the statues would seem to be a bandaid on a really bad systemic problem of racism.
I agree with this move. A poster should educate and motivate, not cause students to yell and scream at each other. We need to learn from history, not use it to cause further hatred and anger.
Why not put up tons of posters celebrating all that African Americans have started, contributed, and continue to give? Slavery is for the textbooks, not the wall.
Just my opinion, nothing more 🙂
What “misunderstandings” need to be cleared up? The poster seems pretty factual and straight forward to me 🤔
I agree with Courtney Marie.
Looks like the snowflakes are melting down again. There was absolutely nothing wrong with that poster. I guess some folks just can't handle the truth.
Maybe if the word "potential" was in front of the list of careers/jobs it would work for everyone. They were all fathers, mothers, sons and daughters prior to being kidnapped and enslaved.
And a missed opportunity to talk about how facts make us feel. Talk about it. Confronting and living with uncomfortable situations is a skill that needs to be taught.
Sad how some people can't handle facts about our history, black people's history and facts but we're supposed to accept statues of losers and rebel flags flying high. Two faced, double standard county🤬
Why not? Statues removed because of the same thing.
All of this saddens me. I was thinking the other day about my Dad and his recently passed best friend. Gene was in his 80s. He had seen segregation and knew what things were like. Those two both white and African American were the best of friends. They valued that they could share laughs and good times. Nobody would separate this over keep bringing up the past. The past was horrible. They felt blessed to live in a time where they could be together. The younger generations create more divide than the ones that experienced the horrors of the past. Let’s have all history in the books and everyone recognized. That way there is no black, white, native month. There is history of all mankind. Equality. We have a lot to learn from the older generations.
They don’t like it wen u tell the truth... hence why they always reject black biz and or don’t give out biz loans to black ppl 😴😴
That school always has been racist
Because it's part of the " black history " why not included it ! It goes hand to hand DUH!
Thank you pay back in three fold
doesn't sound so controversial to me.
We can never be great man 🥴but it’s fine bc we will never go where and we will continue to be great. They can try to swipe us out as much as possible but again ...it’ll never happen.
This whole thing is just sad.. Lack of Knowledge breeds Ignorance. Stop taking away and hiding History. Don't take down the signs, the statues, etc. Taking it down is a means of hiding the past. It is the past. It happened. No matter how wrong we feel it was. It is a part of History. Teach our children what it was about. But teach them all the facts not just those cherry picked moments. Teach the good and the bad.
One of my son's played a football game there and the players were calling them n*****s now I wonder where they got that from
There might have been white slave but how many of them you see portrayed
What? Whites can’t handle our common history??
We better check out that administrator. Seems like some bias involved to me. Black history month is not the ideal. It is necessary because the history of Africans in America is currently under emphasized in the history of the United States and of The State of Virginia.
Kids are born racist they are taught it. Maybe some people need to look in the mirror to see where it starts
Maybe it offended someone. Apparently, if something offends one person, you can remove it. You can't have things just one way, peeps.
They don’t teach real history in school anymore! So why should we live in the past?

Did anyone read the article or are you only assuming its about people trying to cross illegally, its about them trying to cross the legal way and being treated like animals and thrown into barbaric conditions is that what we want to advertise?

How would you feel migrating to australia being treated like a dog i bet you wouldnt have it because you've been fed by a silver spoon your whole life. Its about time someone cares were all human and race, color, nationality doesnt say a word about terroism but what does is the barbaric conditions that people are put under to gain access to this country.
Here's an idea! Don't hold them. Instead march them right back across the border and shoot them if they enter illegally again!
