The Villa reopens at 50 percent capacity; Ragged Mountain operates outside


We are updating news about a couple of our sponsors to allow our readers to know how they can support them as we continue to emerge from the pandemic virus.

The Villa Diner, which not only sponsors our website but also hosts our monthly “ACC Roundtable” lunch when life is normal, has reopened its dining room with 50-percent capacity.

“We welcome back all of our customers and we’re looking forward to getting back to business again,” said Ken Beachley, owner of The Villa.

Meanwhile, Mark Lorenzoni of Ragged Mountain Running & Walking Shop reports that his business features six separated stations outside the store, all under tents, to service customers.

“We all wear masks and our customers love it as it is so much safer outside with less risk,” Lorenzoni said. “We can do everything outside that we do inside, including gait analysis.”

Please support our sponsors during this very important and challenging time: Aberdeen Barn, Riverside Lunch, UVA Orthopedics, Mincer’s, Boar’s Head Resort & Birdwood Golf Course, Ragged Mountain Running Shop and The Villa Diner.

If you would like to advertise at (our readership is skyrocketing) or “The Jerry Ratcliffe Show” on ESPN-Charlottesville, please contact me at and we will be delighted to talk to you.
