Town threatens to close Cheswick Motel Residents left in limbo

By Leland Schwartz Times Staff Writer

The Cheswick Motel, a landmark on Broadview Avenue for more than 50 years, may be shut down if it does not fix myriad problems, including more than a dozen units the town considers unfit for human habitation. About a dozen families and other single residents staying at the Cheswick were told they have to leave the motel by June 22 after an inspection by the Town of Warrenton and the fire department found the degree and number of violations “constitute a dangerous, unsafe and unsanitary structure.”

Gary Booker, a 69-year-old writer, house restorer and University of Virginia alum who has lived at the Cheswick for about three years, said the motel has hired an attorney to seek an extension for residents. “The time frame for people to find a new place to live is just not realistic,” Booker said. “It’s not going to hurt anyone if it stays open another month or two,” Booker said, pointing out the motel has endured “hurricane-force winds … and nothing has happened.” Booker, who has written three novels and has helped with repairs at the Cheswick, concedes the

building is run down, but says “it’s not unsafe.” He said Monday he believes the effort to get an extension will be successful, but that no one will be able to save the building. “It will probably have to come down,” he said. Booker said he is looking for a situation where he might be Gary Booker able to do repair and restoration work in exchange for a portion of his rent. “I live off Social Security and it’s not enough,” he said.

Third time’s a charm for Corey Stewart By Jonathan Hunley and Anita Sherman Times Staff Writers

It was close, but the third time was the charm for Corey Stewart. After unsuccessfully seeking the GOP nomination for lieutenant governor in 2013, and the party nod for governor last year, Stewart has won a statewide primary. He collected the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate with 44.78 percent of the vote Tuesday night, according JUNE to unofficial results. With 97.51 perote cent of the vote re12 ported, Stewart bested Culpeper Del. Nick Freitas, R-30th, who took 43.15 percent of the vote and E.W. Jackson, a minister from Chesapeake, who had 12.07 percent. Now Stewart, the chairman of the Prince William Board of Supervisors since 2006, will take on U.S. Sen Tim Kaine, a Democrat, in November. At his election night party at the Electric Palm in Woodbridge, Stewart promised to unite the coalition that elected President Trump in 2016. “We will win working men and women across the state. We will restore our values. We will restore our economy. We will restore our border and we will restore America,” Stewart said to cheers from the crowd, which numbered more than 100.

Sheriff Bob Mosier: Keeper of the peace It could be at a Fauquier County Chamber of Commerce event, a Fauquier County Republican Committee meeting, church social, a school safety program or the scene of a crime that one might run into Sheriff Bob Mosier. Elected in 2015 and taking office in January 2016, Mosier ran on a platform touting himself as “the people’s sheriff.” He’s proud of that, so it was no surprise that he showed up at Saturday’s Relay for Life event. It took him a while, but he made the rounds to the dozens of teams lining the gym. “I need to check on my deputy,” he chuckled as he headed over to the tent set up by the sheriff’s office. It was popular, especially with the children, as there were lots of fun giveaway items and activities like sand art. Interjecting a bit of history, the word sheriff is a contraction of the term “shire reeve.” Coming from Old English, the word designated a royal official responsible for keeping the peace throughout a shire or county on behalf of the king. The office of sheriff dates back to 1066 in merry ol’ England where the sheriff was himself a member of the royal family. In some ways, things haven’t changed. Sheriffs are still considered keepers of the peace in their respective counties in terms of public safety. A native Virginian, Mosier started as a police dispatcher at the age of 19. At 21, he graduated with top overall achievement as a patrol officer. His

FAUQUIER FOCUS career spans more than 30 years in local, county and federal government as well as domestic and international law enforcement. While in Fauquier, Mosier began as a deputy sheriff and throughout his career served as commander of special operations of the patrol and criminal investigations division. He developed and implemented community policing programs, managed security for large public events and earned 16 letters of commendation, two unit citation awards, a distinguished service award, a community service award and a Valor Award. In 1996, Mosier was selected by the U.S. Department of State to serve in Bosnia and Herzegovina with the International Police Task Force as a station commander where he represented the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office. Following this assignment, Mosier served with the International Justice Mission, a human rights organization, as director of investigations working in Asia, Middle and Near East, Africa

and Latin America. He later served as a senior representative for a large and complex U.S. Department of Defense law-enforcement program. Mosier has a large territory in his realm. The Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office covers 660 square miles. Under his administration, staff are involved in the adult-detention center, animal control, civil process, community services, court security, criminal investigation, patrol and the school resource program. Anne Davis, who pens the Markham column for this newspaper, sent out kudos recently to the sheriff’s office thanking them for their quick response in arresting the person responsible for the theft of a firearm on a home on Conde Road. “It is very reassuring to have the presence of law-enforcement officers on site when needed,” wrote Davis. Many local students have had a chance to meet the sheriff personally when he initiated his “Lunch with the Sheriff” program where he visits public and private schools to share a meal. An updated website is very user-friendly, and if you want to reach out, you can. Sheriff Mosier states, “As always I urge you to help our law enforcement efforts by reporting crimes and suspicious activity when you see them so that we can do our very best to keep this community a safe place to work, play, live, and raise our families. “Once again, my door is always

open to everyone. I want to know what you consider important and necessary to keep ours a safe community.” There is much more to know about Mosier and his service to Fauquier County. Family man, youth advocate and committed public servant, feel yourself fortunate if your paths cross. More than likely you’ll come away feeling better…and safer.

Town threatens to close Cheswick Motel

MOTEL from page 1

Report: Units ‘unfit for human habitation’

In a violation notice sent to the Cheswick last week, town officials said many units do not meet the minimum requirements of ventilation, fire safety and sanitary conditions to remain occupied, according to the Virginia Property Maintenance and Fire Safety and Prevention Codes. The town said the units do not provide adequate food-preparation area and are “suffering from a lack of proper ventilation.” “These units are unfit for human habitation,” the notice said. Nearly 20 units, the town said, were being used for “excessive” storage and contain combustible items with no fire/smoke alerts system. Among other things, the town’s report listed extensive wall and ceiling damage; plumbing fixtures that do not work; and electrical and unsanitary conditions. “These units are unlivable and present a fire-safety hazard given the storage and proximity to occupied units,” the notice said. Warrenton Town Councilman Bob Kravetz, whose Ward 4 includes the motel, said he passes the Cheswick almost daily but didn’t know its true condition before the town inspection. “While I could see that it appeared to be in pretty bad shape, I had no idea the extent of the deficiencies,” he said. “I have sympathy for the current occupants and I do know that the town has been in contact with various social services groups and efforts are underway to, hopefully, find other housing opportunities for them.” The town told the Cheswick May 30 it was “hereby ordered” to correct the violations with-

TIMES STAFF PHOTO/LELAND SCHWARTZ The Cheswick Motel, a fixture on Broadview Avenue since the 1950s, has been ordered by the town to repair more than a dozen units deemed unfit for human habitation. in five days. To avoid any escalation of enforcement, the motel must provide “a plan for corrective action” that includes provisions as to safeguards for tenants. It’s not clear if the hotel responded to the mandate. Attempts to reach the owner of the hotel were not successful. If the motel decides to repair the complex, it would have to provide a detailed plan that includes licensed professionals. If it decides to tear down the structure, demolition “must commence within 60 days,” the notice said.

Residents look for options

The town’s inspection also revealed many tenants, like Booker, are staying at the motel longterm, well beyond 30 days, which is a violation of town ordinances regarding hotel/motel uses. Indeed, in an interview with the Fauquier

Times, one family said they have been staying at the Cheswick for months, and another resident said he has been living there about a year. Antione Barbour, a long-haul tractor-trailer driver who lives at the Cheswick but leaves for a week at a time on trucking trips, said he likes living at the Cheswick. “I’ll tell you what,” he said. “I like being here. The people in the office are really nice. It’s quiet here.” Barbour said he would like to find a new place in Warrenton, Bealeton or The Plains. Jermaine Bumbrey, a landscape worker, has been staying at the Cheswick with his 4-year-old daughter, Jaiona, on and off since February, according to Jaiona’s mother, Lekisha Payne. “We’re both worried about it,” Payne said. “I know a lot of people are going to try and move out at the same time. That’s pretty much going to book the hotels around here.” She said they were “not really having any problems” staying at the Cheswick, which costs $250 a week and includes cable, water and electricity. “We need help,” resident Harry McPeak said Monday. “ We can’t just go live in our cars.” Several organizations, including Community Touch in Bealeton, which focuses on assisting the homeless, have contacted Cheswick residents offering assistance. According to a Cheswick desk clerk, the motel and its surrounding property at 394 Broadview Ave., near the intersection of U.S. 17, is up for sale. It was to have been replaced by a Lidl grocery store, but the chain decided last December not to locate in Warrenton. Leland Schwartz can be reached at lschwartz@

An historic win for Williams in 1st District By Jill Palermo

Times Staff Writer

Vangie Williams, a federal contractor from tiny King George County, won a historic victory Tuesday, becoming the first African-American woman to ever secure the Democratic Party’s nomination in Virginia’s 1st District. Williams, a 49-year-old federal contractor and a mother of six, will become the first woman of color elected to Congress from Virginia if she beats her Republican opponent, incumbent U.S. Rep. Rob Wittman in November. State Sen. Louise Lucas was the first black woman to run for Congress from Virginia in 2001, according to Williams’ campaign. Williams came from the smallest county of her three opponents and therefore was considered less likely to win. Reached at her campaign party in Fredericksburg Tuesday night, Williams said she was surprised but also overjoyed with the victory. She won by nearly 2,000 votes over second-place Edwin Santana, a former

Vangie Williams U.S. Marine who was a favorite in Prince William County. Santana won Prince William by 800 votes, but it was not enough to keep Williams from winning the sprawling district, which stretches from Nokesville to Hampton Roads. Williams garnered 11,001 votes, or 39.9 percent of the total. Santana

received 9,020 votes, or 32.7 percent. John Suddarth, a Prince William native who lives in Hanover County, came in third with 7,546 votes or 27 percent. “They kept telling us we had the numbers, but no way did we think the win would be that big,” Williams said. She gave credit to her volunteers — whom she affectionately calls her “Vangelinas” and “Vangelinos” — whom she said knocked on more than 10,000 doors and reached voters in places sometime overlooked by political campaigns. “We went to churches, we went to nursing homes and we also talked to Republicans,” Williams said of her campaign’s effort to reach voters. “And they donated and supported our campaign,” she added of her Republican supporters. Republican support is likely crucial to any win in the district, which leans decidedly more red than the rest of the state. The party hasn’t held a primary to pick a candidate in the 1st District since 1976. A Democrat hasn’t won

Third time’s a charm for Stewart

Del. Nick Freitas and his wife, Tina, talk with Daniel Cortez outside the polling place at Heritage Hunt Country Club in Gainesville Tuesday morning.

STEWART from page 1 Stewart, 49, said earlier Tuesday that, if he were to win, it would be because he ran a very aggressive race and tied himself to President Donald Trump. “Our whole message [at the] beginning of the campaign was to identify myself as a fighter and a strong supporter of President Trump, and I think, you know, my team did a good job of getting that message across,” Stewart said after he voted with his wife, Maria, and his oldest son, Isaac. It was the first time voting for Isaac Stewart, 18. The message Corey Stewart brought to the campaign trail included talk of illegal immigration, historical monuments and armed security in schools. Illegal immigration has been a signature Stewart issue for years. He championed a Prince William County regulation, passed in 2007 and put into practice in 2008, that requires police to check the immigration status of anyone arrested on criminal charges. As a U.S. senator, Stewart said he would work with Trump to check the immigration status of those arrested in every locality and remove illegal aliens from the population. Stewart also has come to be associated with advocating for the preservation of Confederate monuments, and he said that, if elected, he would sponsor legislation to amend the Antiquities Act of 1906 to federally protect historical monuments. On school security, Stewart said shootings are occurring because of a breakdown in society that began with taking God out of the schools. On the campaign trail, Stewart has said putting up “gun-free zone” signs at schools isn’t an effective way to protect students. The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun, Stewart said, pointing out that Prince William will launch a pilot program July 1 to place five armed civilian security guards in some of the county’s 61 elementary schools in addition to school-resource officers, sworn police personnel who patrol the middle and high schools. It’s a system Stewart said should be replicated

the seat since 1974. Wittman has held the seat since a special election in 2006 and has never won with less than about 59 percent of the vote in the years since. In 2017, 1st District voters picked Republican Ed Gillespie with 54 percent of the vote even though Gillespie went on to lose Virginia to Gov. Ralph Northam (D) statewide by nearly 9 percentage points. Her victory is the latest Democratic win led by women candidates. Williams joins fellow candidates such as Jennifer Lewis, Abigail Spanberger and Jennifer Wexton in their bids for a congressional seat. On the campaign trail, Williams talked about the need to do a comprehensive transportation plan for the district, and she’s in favor of single-payer health care. She’s against assault weapons, coining a phrase that she said even Republicans like: “If it takes you 30 bullets to shoot a deer, you need to go fishing.” Reach Jill Palermo at jpalermo@

across the country.

Freitas in Warrenton: ‘Let’s win in November.’

Freitas, 38, is in his second term in the Virginia House and was endorsed by several prominent names. U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, and former Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, backed him, as did Dels. Michael Webert, R-18th, and Mark Cole, R-88th, who represent Fauquier County, and 5thCongressional District GOP nominee Denver Riggleman. Freitas was also the choice of local Republican activists Martha Boneta and Rick Buchanan. He won Fauquier and Culpeper counties when the vote was counted Tuesday night. At minutes before 9 p.m. an ever-smiling Freitas addressed a large group of supporters who had gathered at McMahon’s Irish Pub and Restaurant in Warrenton. “Stewart has won,” he began to a crowd of sighing “Nos!” “But, I want you to know that we started in relative obscurity and came within 1 percent, that’s unheard of and that’s because of you and all the others

like you,” he said. “I said from the very beginning that this race was never about a candidate…We started Liberty Rising…It’s about a movement and we’re just as strong now as we were 10 minutes ago…you’ve got another candidate to get behind in Denver Riggleman,” stressed Freitas as he asked Riggleman to join him and his wife Tina at the microphone. Riggleman recently won the GOP nomination in the 5th District. “You need to take your energy and passion and get Riggleman, Dave Brat and others across the finish line in November,” Freitas added. “We’re not done, we’re just getting started…let’s win in November.” A national security consultant, he said during the campaign that he believes in strengthening the military but that the U.S. shouldn’t serve as the world’s police force. Also a Trump supporter, Freitas said he believes in lowering taxes and making the recent Trump administration tax cuts permanent. Freitas is up for re-election to his delegate’s seat next year.

New restaurant, boutique hotel planned for former Old Town church By Leland Schwartz Times Staff Writer

What was once the Catholic church on East Lee Street in Old Town Warrenton may soon become a new white-tablecloth eatery called “Restaurant Violette.” The restaurant’s backers also plan a six- to eight-room boutique hotel they will call “Villa V” either next door or nearby. The restaurant will feature healthy selections and will be associated with a nutrition-mentoring service called “Rejuvenescence,” which aims to help people lose weight and improve their nutrition through customized meal plans. “Achieving a health-optimized body requires a professionally-trained nutritional mentor who is passionate about your health, nutrition and happiness,” the company’s website states. Oasis Life Sciences has a contract to purchase the church, at 79 East Lee St., which was built in the 1860s. Also included in the deal is the rectory and a parish hall, all of which lie within the town’s historic district. The property is zoned “central business district,” and the church building can be used as a restaurant by right. CRES Realty listed the property for $895,000. The company says it plans to invest more than $3.5 million in renovations and create more than 40 full-time jobs. It asked the Warrenton Town Council to approve $40,000 in tourism-zone incentives.

Warrenton hires interim police chief “I am pleased to have Dan on board as interim chief. Having worked closely with him in Culpeper, I am confident in his leadership [and] professional knowledge and appreciate the sound advice he gave me when I was town manager there. We are fortunate that he was available to help us out here.”

By Leland Schwartz Times Staff Writer

Former Town of Culpeper Police Chief Daniel Boring became Warrenton’s interim police chief last week, temporarily replacing former Police Chief Louis Battle, who retired in May. At the same time, the town began its search for a permanent chief, saying in its recruitment ad it’s seeking an “innovative, experienced, proactive leader” with a minimum of 10 years of law-enforcement experience in a state, local or county police environment. The town says it wants the new chief to have no less than seven years of “progressively responsible supervisory service, a four-year degree in criminal justice or a related field from an accredited college or university, with a master’s degree preferred.” Boring has been hired to lead the department until the permanent chief is hired, Town Manager Brannon Godfrey announced last week. Boring retired from the Town of Culpeper Police Department in 2006 after serving as chief for five years. Previously, he was the chief of police in the Town of Vienna from 1997 — 2001. He retired from the Arlington County Police Department in 1997 as its deputy chief. The interim chief said he will not be a candidate for the job but is “looking forward” to being in Warrenton and working with the community. During his first day on the job Monday, Boring said he did not know if there was anything in particular he needed to focus on, but he said, “It’s fair to say I am not a placeholder or babysitter.” Boring and his wife Donna live in Tucson but will find temporary housing in the area during his time in Warrenton, Godfrey said.


Former Town of Culpeper Police Chief Dan Boring has been hired as the interim chief of the Warrenton Police Department. “I am pleased to have Dan on board as interim chief. Having worked closely with him in Culpeper, I am confident in his leadership [and] professional knowledge and appreciate the sound advice he gave me when I was town manager there. We are fortunate that he was available to help us out here,” Godfrey said. Boring served on the Culpeper Town Council from 2010 to 2014. He holds a bachelor’s degree in social science from Northwest Missouri State University and a master’s degree in forensic science from George Washington University. He completed the 150th Session of the FBI National Academy and served on the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. for more than 30 years.

Warrenton Police Lt. Art Mellon had been serving as the police department’s interim chief since Battle retired. Godfrey said Mellon “performed admirably” over the last few weeks. “In the absence of a chief and deputy chief on the command staff, I felt it necessary to have an interim chief to carry the load,” Godfrey said. Mellon will begin serving as acting deputy chief during the search for a permanent chief search and selection process, Godfrey said. In its recruitment ad for a permanent chief, the town also said a Virginia Law Enforcement Certificate is required and “preference may be given to candidates who have completed nationally recognized advanced leadership training.” Experience with a municipal or county law enforcement agency is highly preferred, the town said, as is experience at the level of chief, assistant/deputy chief or equivalent. The town set a June 29 deadline for applications. Reach Leland Schwartz at

Flooding at Jiffy Lube Live Saturday blamed on clogged drainage pipe A soggy Saturday night at Jiffy Lube Live turned into an ordeal for some Dave Matthews Band fans who returned to the parking lot to find their cars submerged in flood waters. A clogged drainage pipe in a storm-water management pond at the outdoor music venue was to blame for the flooding, according to the Prince William County Fire & Rescue Department, which tweeted out

a report just before midnight Sunday. There were no injuries, but between 20 and 30 vehicles were damaged “requiring assistance from the scene,” the report said. Tow trucks were called to the scene in Bristow to help people move their cars, the report said.

Electric Co-op warns of potential scammers Rappahannock Electric Cooperative urges members to beware of anyone calling to demand immediate payment for services from the co-op. Callers may claim the electric service will be disconnected unless the bill is immediately paid. If you receive a suspicious call, keep the following in mind: •REC does not use collection agencies to contact members by phone. •Employees from REC do attempt to contact members with delinquent payments to warn them that they are subject to disconnection, but that is done by an automated calling system. The co-op’s member service representatives do not demand immediate payment but can take payments over the phone when necessary. •If you receive a phone call from someone claiming to be an REC employee demanding immediate payment, report the suspicious activity to local law enforcement. If you are uncertain if a call you received came from a legitimate REC representative call REC directly at 1-800-552-3904 to confirm. REC provides electric service to more than 167,000 connections in parts of 22 Virginia counties. With its general office in Fredericksburg, the cooperative operates and maintains more than 17,000 miles of power lines through its service area. For more information about REC, visit

Northam talks budget, economic growth with local business leaders By James Ivancic Times Staff Writer

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam made it back to Richmond in time to sign the budget bill after addressing business and political leaders in Manassas Thursday. Northam touched on the new state budget, economic growth and job training during his remarks June 7 to about 150 people gathered at the Hylton Performing Arts Center on the George Mason University campus. The program was hosted by the Prince William Chamber of Commerce. It took a special session, negotiation and bipartisan support to get a two-year budget passed that expands Medicaid to about 400,000 additional low-income Virginians. “This may not be the easiest time to be a public servant, but it’s the most important,” Northam said. The new budget includes: • A boost to the commonwealth’s rainy-day fund and the new revenue reserve fund, bringing total deposits to nearly $1 billion by the end of the biennium. • Another $189 million in new general-fund resources for behavioral health and developmental services, including $84.1 million for community mental health services and $67 million to expand services for people with developmental disabilities. • More than $530 million in general funds for K-12 education, and $131 million for a 3-percent pay raise for teachers and support staff, effective July 1, 2019.

“This may not be the easiest time to be a public servant, but it’s the most important” GOV. RALPH NORTHAM

another $38 million for a 2-percent merit raise for state workers with at least three years of service. The budget also provides $49 million for targeted pay raises for direct care staff at state behavioral health facilities; corrections officers at Department of Corrections and Juvenile Justice facilities; and marine police and deputy sheriffs. Northam told the audience that it is a “structurally sound budget that protects our triple-A bond rating.” As a physician, the governor said he felt strongly that more Virginians in need should be eligible for Medicaid. Northam also noted the commonwealth’s current average unemployment rate of 3.3 percent is the lowest in 10 years but that unemployment is higher in rural regions, and more needs to be done to address it. The governor said the commonwealth ranked fifth on Forbes magazine’s “best states for business” list last year, better than the ranking of 13th it had two years ago. Forbes ranks states based on business costs, labor supply, regulatory environment, economic climate, growth prospects, quality of life and population. Northam called for a greater push to create renewable energy, from sources such as from solar

and wind. He set a goal of 30 percent reliance on renewable energy by the year 2030. He also called for “universal broadband” throughout the state to help students needing Internet access to do homework and business people conducting their work. “No region should be solely dependent on one industry. We need to diversify our economy and that comes down to workforce development,” Northam said. More can be done to promote apprenticeships, vocational education and two-year degree programs offered by community colleges that can lead to jobs, the governor said. Northam singled out cybersecurity, biotechnology, data collection and analysis, and biotechnology as job-growth areas. GMU President Angel Cabrera said that half of the 1,000 new students enrolled at the university are pursuing engineering degrees, and that GMU has the most graduates in information technology of any educational institution in Virginia. Cabrera said more students are enrolling from community college than from high school. GMU has a dual-admission program with Northern Virginia Community College to smooth the transition from the two-year to four-year institution. A new program called ADVANCE creates a single point of admission, giving students a dedicated adviser to work with them from the time they enter NOVA through graduation from GMU. The program also provides more financial aid to needy students, he said. Cabrera said the nation’s work force needs both talent and those with ideas. “We need a new wave of entrepreneurs, and that’s where universities play a huge role,” Cabrera said.

Recent rains a mixed blessing for Virginia farmers By Vicky Moon

Contributing Writer

Many farmers will tell you they prefer drought to excessive rain. With parts of Virginia receiving two months’ worth of rain in two weeks, this spring’s rainfall definitely counts as extensive. Too much rain for too long can be devastating to an agricultural operation. It affects different farms differently, depending on location (top of a hill vs. the bottom), soil type, crops produced, or animals raised, the time of year and where a farm is in the planting, growing

or harvesting schedule. A recent Virginia crop progress and condition report from the National Agricultural Statistics Service noted some farmers in the state have been watching their crops for disease and in some cases have delayed planting because of wet fields. The recent heavy storms also delayed fieldwork and had some impact on previously planted corn and soybeans and nearly mature small grains, according to the report. Robert Harper, grain manager for Virginia Farm Bureau Feder-

ation, said many farmers have reported 3 to 16 inches of rain. In many places, he noted, “There’s water standing where it hasn’t been standing for a long time.” Harper said producers he spoke with were “cautiously optimistic, looking forward to the sun coming out.” As for planting delays, “We were a little bit behind anyway from the cooler weather in early spring. And with the kind of equipment we have now, people can catch up really fast.” According to NASS, as much as 52 percent of topsoil and 61 percent of subsoil on the state’s farms

had adequate moisture to sustain crops. Forty-six percent of the topsoil and 32 percent of subsoil had surplus moisture. Conditions were rated mostly good for barley, corn and winter wheat and fair or good for hay and pastureland. Two percent of barley grown for grain had been harvested, 91 percent of the wheat crop had headed, and 85 percent of corn had been planted. In addition, producers had planted 59 percent of cotton, 50 percent of peanuts, 95 percent of summer potatoes and 26 percent of soybeans, according to NASS. Tobacco growers had transplanted 40 percent of burley and fire-cured tobacco and 60 percent of flue-cured tobacco. In Fauquier, as in other counties, wine grapes and other plants are very susceptible to fungi, which like wet weather. Excess water can affect crops in numerous ways. Plant roots need water and food, but they also need air. Standing water can drown plants, especially young ones. Roots of new plants don’t have to search for water, so roots might be shallow in the soil, making them more susceptible to later drought. When farmers have to replant, the growing season is shorter, which reduces yields - the amount grown per plant. Rain on cotton can destroy its quality, reducing its value as a crop, according to the report. Animal agriculture is also affected by the rain. It can destroy hay or greatly reduce its yield, or extremely wet fields can keep animals from grazing efficiently. Parasites thrive in the wet weather, causing problems from disease to loss of quality of wool. In horses and cattle, excessively wet conditions and flooding can cause foot rot. Farmers are more dependent on weather than almost any other occupation, and for them, it is not just an inconvenience. Weather, including too much rain, can make the difference between a good year and a disastrous one. Numerous Virginia Cooperative Extension agents and others who shared weather updates for the report indicated rain was needed. Doug Horn, an Extension agent in Rockingham County, said that area “got a month’s worth of rain in six days.” Mike Broaddus, an agent in Caroline and King George counties, noted that crops there “have vastly improved since last week’s rains.” The rainfall was more than needed for other parts of the state. “Rain and ripe strawberries do not mix,” reported Roy Flanagan, an Extension agent in Virginia Beach. Agent Scott Reiter, who serves Prince George, Surry and Sussex counties, shared that standing water in crop fields “will mean that replanting will be needed in some areas. Corn, cotton, soybeans and peanuts are affected.”

Land Trust of Virginia receives $20,000 grant The Land Trust of Virginia received a $20,000 grant from Virginia Environmental Endowment for its Blue Ridge Conservation Initiative. Several years ago, the trust began a study of a 200,000-acre area along the Blue Ridge in Loudoun, Fauquier, Clarke, and Warren counties. Of this 200,000-acre study area, only about 15 percent are protected through state and federal parks or by conservation easements, thus making it the largest unprotected stretch of the Blue Ridge in its entire 600-mile length, according to a news release. The study produced 21 maps displaying natural resources, conservation values, and vulnerability to development. A composite analysis was then completed, which identified 286 priority properties, totaling more than 41,000 acres. These 286 properties are all more than 50 acres in size and contain the greatest number of conservation values identified in the mapping. The data compiled in the study will help direct and focus the trust’s efforts as it moves forward in its conservation work. The grant will help fund trust efforts to reach out to the landowners in this area identified in the study with the goal of helping them permanently protect their properties through con-


In societies less advanced than ours, it’s not uncommon to read stories in worldwide media involving individuals being buried alive after the local authorities have incorrectly deemed them to be dead. The possibility of a premature burial occurring today in this country is nearly impossible, because a medical determination of death and a death certificate are requirements for burial. However, centuries ago, when comatose and unconscious individuals were not so easily distinguishable from the dead, it was possible for U.S. citizens to be buried alive. Consequently, socalled “safety coffins” were developed, which had devices (a string attached from the hand of the buried person to an aboveground bell) that would enable prematurely buried individuals to convey their status to passersby. A funeral is a meaningful event that can help ease the pain of separation that naturally accompanies death. Honoring the life of your loved one means you value the relationship you shared. We look forward to helping you decide how to celebrate that bond and honor the unique person you’ve lost. To learn more about our services, please call MOSER FUNERAL HOME at (540) 347-3431.

Celebrating the flag, and all for which it stands

Thursday, June 14, marks Flag Day, celebrating the resolution adopted by the Continental Congress “that the flag of the United States shall be of thirteen stripes of alternate red and white, with a union of thirteen stars of white in a blue field, representing the new constellation.” This flag was first carried into battle on September 11, 1777, at the Battle of the Brandywine. The American flag was first saluted by foreign naval vessels on February 14, 1778, when Capt. John Paul Jones’ Ranger arrived in a French port. While there are many claims to the first celebration marking the flag’s birthday, most agree it was nearly a century after the flag’s adoption. It wasn’t until 1916 that it was officially proclaimed by President Woodrow Wilson, and not until 1949 that President Truman signed an Act of Congress designating June 14 of each year as national Flag Day. Rules governing the flag fall under the federal Flag Code. Quoting a U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs document, the code “contains rules for handling and displaying the U.S. flag” but contains no penalties for misusing the flag. States have their own flag codes and OUR VIEW may impose penalties, but the federal code makes clear the flag is “a living symbol.” A symbol. Full of meaning for many of us. One we do not wish to see disrespected or desecrated. Yet, we are not a nation based on symbols, we are a nation of laws. It is the Constitution that binds us. The Supreme Court has ruled twice that destruction of the American flag is protected by the Constitution — in Texas v. Johnson in 1989 and in U.S. v. Eichman in 1990. The First Amendment’s protection of free speech must take precedence, no matter how uncomfortable it makes us feel. The late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia put it this way in a 2012 interview with CNN: “If I were king, I would not allow people to go around burning the American flag. However, we have a First Amendment, which says that the right of free speech shall not be abridged — and it is addressed in particular to speech critical of the government, that was the main kind of speech that tyrants would seek to suppress.” The same could be said about kneeling during the national anthem, a controversial practice at the center of much recent debate. In 2016, some athletes in the NFL began kneeling during the national anthem to demonstrate against what they perceive to be ongoing police brutality mostly affecting African Americans. As other players showed support for the silent protest, the issue became yet another dividing flash point that many have used to their political advantage. Just last week, the Super Bowl-winning Philadelphia Eagles were disinvited to the White House over the kneeling controversy, although no Eagles players kneeled during the regular season. It was later revealed that most of the players had declined the invitation. Amid all of this, it’s important to note one more Supreme Court ruling, a 6-3 decision on West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette, which was delivered on Flag Day in 1943, of all days. The court held that the Free Speech Clause of the First Amendment protects students from being forced to salute the American flag or say the Pledge of Allegiance in public school. The students in this case were Jehovah’s Witnesses, a religion that specifies the law of God supersedes the law of man. The decision, delivered by Justice Robert H. Jackson, said free speech and constitutional rights are “beyond the reach of majorities and officials.” “If there is any fixed star in our constitutional constellation, it is that no official, high or petty, can prescribe what shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion, or other matters of opinion or force citizens to confess by word or act their faith therein.” On June 14, the nation celebrates our flag, a symbol of all the nation stands for: its people, of all races and creeds, and the grand experiment of democracy, freedom and liberty. Inherent in that liberty is the right to stand and recognize the U.S. flag and the national anthem — or not.

FAUQUIER FLASHBACKS: FROM THE FAUQUIER TIMES Built before 1856 by John Beckham, the building at 28 Main St., Warrenton was demolished in November 1971 to make way for a modern building, originally used as dress shop. George A. Vose went to work in Addison’s grocery store on the site in 1902; he bought the business from Addison in 1905, and the building in 1918. Vose continued to operate this grocery there until the end of 1969. 75 Years Ago June 17, 1943 There is a possibility that fathers will not be drafted until October, according to an announcement made by the Selective Service. Steps are being taken to speed up the induction of childless married men, thereby delaying the drafting of fathers for two additional months. Turner Grimsley, well known in Warrenton, took over his duties Tuesday as one of the town’s two policemen, succeeding Tom Stafford, who resigned because of the press of other business. Officer Grimsley was sworn in Monday by Recorder J. Hunter Bowman. Lt. Christopher Greer Jr., U.S. Army, and Mrs. Greer have purchased Boxwood, near Middleburg, home of the late Gen. “Billy” Mitchell, from Mrs. Thomas B. Byrd of Millwood, the former Mrs. Mitchell. 50 Years Ago June 20, 1968 Beverage merchants carried the day last Thursday at a public hearing of the Board of Supervisors on a petition to repeal prohibition of Sunday sales of beer and wine in Fauquier. Warrenton attorney Carroll J. Martin Jr. plead the merchants’ case last Thursday, saying Prince William County had just repealed a similar Sunday ban. About 275 persons attended a $25 a plate dinner for George C. Wallace at Richmond’s Jefferson Hotel Monday night, and later joined 6,000 to hear the

presidential candidate speak at a rally in the Richmond Arena. The University of Virginia’s Board of Visitors this week announced the appointment of Fauquier County Planning Consultant Rosser H. Payne to the position of visiting professor in city planning. Gary Lee Carroll, son of Mrs. Marvin Carroll of Warrenton and the late Mr. Carroll, was named to the dean’s list of distinguished students at the University of Virginia’s College of Arts and Sciences for the second semester. 25 Years Ago June 16, 1993 As the residents of Marshall and Orlean clean up after the destruction of more than 300 gravestones in the local cemeteries, Fauquier County Sheriff Joe Higgs is anxious to reassure the public that last week’s vandalism was perpetrated by disrespectful individuals and not devil worshippers, as widespread stories have suggested. Over $100,000 worth of damage was done in the cemeteries, he estimated. June calendars should include the Grace Church Jubilee on Saturday, June 19 from 2 until 4 p.m. on the eve of the 75th anniversary of the Consecration of Grace Church in The Plains. Warrenton native Jo Anne Orndoff, formerly a classified advertising adviser, has returned to the Fauquier Times-Democrat to become the newspaper’s business manager. — Compiled by John T. Toler

While Virginia does not require a parenting plan, it doesn’t preclude one either (if parents bring one forward). Still, this is one simple area in which Virginia could bring its statutes to be more in line with what mediation experts have been saying for years: Decreasing conflict in divorce and child custody is a good thing and benefits everyone, most importantly the precious children who are caught in the middle. We should all be encouraged by Virginia’s new law; it represents a step to strike a balance between long-overdue progress and concern with keeping things as they are. And, importantly, Virginia’s recent shared-parenting legislation still protects victims of domestic violence and continues to give judges the discretion they need to address unique circumstances. It is imperative that Virginia continues to champion thoughtful, balanced shared parenting legislation in these polarizing times, and everyone should be proud of our state’s new law, especially since it supports the best interest of all our children.


Can’t the party of Lincoln do better? As the 2018 midterm elections approach, the 2020 Presidential election seems around the corner.

I would like to respond to the May 3 letter by Leslie Cheek. The Fauquier County Comprehensive Plan is a great concept that has not been executed effectively. Most of our service districts are lacking key services that businesses require. Some have water and no sewer; some have sewer and no water; some have neither, and all of them mostly lack one key thing that millennials absolutely require: connectivity. All the boutique shops and businesses aside, millennials still have to travel some distance to have a real choice of eating establishments, view a movie, spend an evening socializing with other millennials and any number of other activities, including shopping opportunities and services millennials find vital to their modern existence. Millennials have little interest (or money to spend) in the types of

boutique businesses that the writer points to as Fauquier assets. Fauquier also offers little in the way of employment of the type that careers are built on. Millennials are well aware that moving to Fauquier involves a lengthy commute that will only get worse over time, and that the ability to telework is non-existent due to the aforementioned lack of connectivity across the county. If they don’t know these things upfront, they will learn them the first week after they move here. Until Fauquier wakes up and actually follows through on the comprehensive plan, we will have little to offer the younger generation and we will continue to be an aging community with rapidly rising taxes.

ing the combined Gene McCarthy and Robert Kennedy challenges that influenced President Lyndon Johnson’s decision to withdraw from the race in 1968. The important rationale for a primary challenge to Donald Trump should not be whether the challenger will ultimately win the nomination, but rather the moral imperative to support a candidate who espouses the essential rights of all Americans as stated in our Declaration of Independence “…that all men are created equal & independent, that from that equal creation they derive rights inherent & inalienable, among which are the preservation

of life, & liberty, & the pursuit of happiness; ... ” (Editors note: The quoted text is from Thomas Jefferson’s “original Rough draught” of the Declaration of Independence, according to the Library of Congress) Suppose a million Republicans stood up and declared that the party of Lincoln can do better?

Caps win! And two Fauquier County residents celebrate Before the Stanley Cup, there was that green trash can It’s a long way from my home in Fauquier County to the Capital One Arena in downtown Washington, D.C. But think about the even longer journey the Washington Capitals had to endure from their first disastrous expansion franchise baby steps in 1974 to the pinnacle of professional hockey last Thursday night in Las Vegas. That’s when and where a historically star-crossed organization I once very occasionally covered for The Washington Post 44 years ago secured its first Stanley Cup Championship. The Capitals soared to a pulsating 4-3 victory over a team that happened to post the best-ever record for a first-year expansion franchise in all of sports. The fact that the Vegas Golden Knights succumbed in the fifth game of the best-of-seven final series to what had been the absolute worst expansion franchise in American pro sports history – the Washington Capitals – made the local team’s triumph just that much sweeter. For


those of a certain age who remember just how bad those old ’70s Capitals happened to be, it was truly exhilarating, present company included. How bad were the first-year, 197475 expansion Capitals? They played 80 games that year. They lost 67, with five ties. They played 40 games in arenas far away from the not-so-friendly confines of their own home ice at the old Capital Center in Largo, Maryland, just off the beltway. Their revolting road mark was 1-39, another record for hockey futility. When the Capitals finally defeated the California Golden Seals, 5-3,

Former Washington Post sportswriter Len Shapiro covered the Capitals in the lean years, including their 8-67-5 first season in 1975. in front of 3,933 spectators at the old Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum on March 25, 1975, my late, great colleague, Post columnist Ken Denlinger, wrote: “The Washington Capitals won a road hockey game tonight. Honest.” That evening, the giddy winning players celebrated in the locker room by taking turns lofting a green garbage can over their heads and marching around in their underwear. Then they signed their names on it with a black Sharpie. “That was our Stanley Cup,” goalie Ron Low, who recorded the victory that night, said many years later. “We came into the dressing room and the trash can was tall and skinny, so guys just started lifting it up and parading it around. Ace Bailey, one of the great jokesters of all time, took it after every-

body signed it and twirled the rink with it. It was the most hilarious thing.” Covering that team, even for only a few games as an occasional replacement for my long-suffering hockey-beat-writer colleague, the late Robert Fachet, was not much fun. In more than 40 years of writing about a wide variety of sports for The Post, I visited my fair share of losing locker rooms to grab a quote or three from a typically dejected player. The Capitals were almost always dejected. That year, they gave up an average of more than six goals a game. And the aptly-named goaltender, Low, actually performed highlight miracles night after night, game after game as the last line of defense on a team that basically had no defense. See SHAPIRO, Page 19

Howling at the moon in D.C.: For lifelong Caps’ fan, a journey rewarded A young boy, maybe 7, sits on the curb and pulls on a pair of roller blades, snapping the hard plastic buckles with an authoritative click. His brother, about 15, wearing a blue jersey with the iconic “Screaming Eagle” stands over him, skates already on, leaning on a hockey stick. It’s the kind of stick with the plastic blade made for whacking tennis balls on asphalt.


How about them Pens?

The younger boy, now 18, leans over the boards wearing his full

black-and-purple uniform. A hockey stick, designed for hard slap shots and frozen rubber pucks, dangles loosely in the crook of his arm. A bright red mouth guard, ragged with bite marks, hangs half out of his mouth, being gnawed on mindlessly. A teammate skates by and jabs his stick at our hero’s, waking him from his mouth-guard-gnawing daze. “How about them Penguins?” the other player chirps as he glides by.

ing nervously on his lower lip. Finally, the ocean swells in unison, chanting down the last seconds of the game: “10, 9, 8...” His hands go to the top of his head... “7, 6, 5...” His mouth hangs open in anticipation as the energy level rises, fed by 44 years of waiting and shared by 50,000 fellow fans... “4, 3, 2...” See GUINN, Page 19

Oh no, not again

Languished and alone, our hero sits slumped over the steering wheel of his 2004 Dodge Ram. He’s wearing a red jersey with No. 8 on the back and some Russian fellow’s name written above it. The radio plays the Washington Capitals’ post-game report, finding whatever good news can be offered after another Game 7 elimination in the second round of the playoffs.

‘In the sixth, the wheels came off’

Falcons lose to Salem, 8-3, in state semis By Jeff Malmgren Times Staff Writer

Matt O’Saben fought back tears after watching the Salem Spartans fight back fearlessly. The Spartans trailed O’Saben’s Fauquier baseball team by two runs entering the sixth inning Friday, but rallied to win 8-3 in the Class 4 state semifinals at Kiwanis Field in Salem. It ended one of the Falcons’ best seasons in history and O’Saben’s time coaching his senior son, Blaze. “It’s not the loss [of the game] that’s killing me, it’s the loss of the seniors” to graduation, Matt O’Saben said. “Those are guys that I’ve literally coach – most of them – since they were 5 and 6 years old.” Salem kept Fauquier from advancing to its first state championship game in history. “Last time I coach my son, so it’s a little rough,” Matt O’Saben said. “It’s super emotional. I couldn’t be prouder of those moments I’ve had with him. It’s been an opportunity that most dad’s don’t get to get, and I’ve been lucky enough. I’m never going to forget it.” A shortstop and No. 3 hitter, Blaze O’Saben was part of a strong Falcons


Ahead most of the game, the Falcons lost to eventual state champion Salem, 8-3, in Friday’s Class 4 semi. squad that went 19-7, won their second region championship (Class 4C) in history and earned their fourth state berth. Nonetheless, they couldn’t withstand a seven-run sixth inning by the Spartans, who went on to win the state championship Saturday over Jamestown, 2-1. “We thought we had it there going into the sixth,” O’Saben said Friday. “It’s pretty hard” to swallow. Salem’s sixth inning featured five singles, four steals, four RBIs, three walks, two errors, one passed ball and one wild pitch for three earned runs and four unearned – all with one out to easily overcame the Falcons’ 3-1 lead.

“In the sixth, the wheels just came off there for a little bit, and we couldn’t get them back on,” said Matt O’Saben. Over the opening five innings, Fauquier starting pitcher Carson McCusker allowed only one run on four hits and two walks, but then he allowed a one-out single in the sixth inning before walking consecutive batters to load the bases. So O’Saben sent relief pitcher Cameron Lee to the mound. A Lee wild pitch allowed one run to score before Austin Sowers hit an RBI single with a ground ball up the middle to tie the score, 3-3.

“If that ground ball is a little bit to the left or to the right, we turn a double play and we get out of that,” O’Saben said. That was Lee’s first pitching appearance since May 9 after he recently had surgery on a torn ACL. He wore a knee brace under his uniform Friday. Following the game-tying single, Lee allowed a walk to load the bases again before ceding the mound to Lane Pearson, who began by facing Zac Honaker, the Spartans’ No. 9 hitter. Honaker hit a challenging ground ball to Blaze O’Saben, who made a fielding error that allowed Hunter Clifton to score for a 4-3 lead. A subsequent O’Saben throwing error on the play allowed Sowers to score. So Pearson allowed two unearned runs on three hits with one strikeout over 1 2/3 innings, while Lee allowed two runs (one earned) on one hit and one walk without recording an out. McCusker took the loss despite allowing only four runs (three earned) on five hits and four walks while striking out three over 5 1/3 innings. “Carson pitched his heart out,” Matt O’Saben said. “But it’s hot out. I probably should have gotten him out of there a little bit earlier. Once we started walking guys, bad things started happening.” Blaze O’Saben led the Falcons with two RBIs and a double on 3-for-4 hitting, but he also made the final out of his senior season with a ground ball to shortstop.

Fauquier baseball team wins 13U title By Peter Brewington Times Staff Writer

The Blue Ridge Titans 13U travel baseball team won the 13U Memorial Day Classic at the Ripken Experience in Aberdeen, Maryland. The Fauquier County-based Titans avenged their only loss in the tournament by defeating the Hatboro (Pennsylvania) Hornets, 4-2, in the championship game. The title capped a successful weekend, which included a one-hit performance shared by pitchers Connor Dean and Derek Reece, and a no-hitter by C.J. Beier and Trey Western. Peyton Mehaffey, Ben Gray, Connor Dean and Dakota Lindsay were all selected as game MVPs. “The boys never quit fighting and didn’t take the lead until the sixth inning in the championship game,” said coach Chris Beier. “Total team effort.”

anyone who can make a National Hockey League roster these days. Back then, virtually all of them were from Canada, very few had gone to college and most grew up playing in small-town indoor and outdoor rinks, often in sub-freezing or even sub-zero weather. And yet, those woebegone Capitals almost always were willing to talk after all those disheartening losses. There were even times you had the feeling they were trying to console the equally beaten-down writers, who only had eight victories to describe that entire season. From a distance, these newly-crowned Stanley Cup champion Capitals seem to be chips off the old

(ice) block. Two players, T.J. Oshie and Matt Niskanen, actually rode Metro to their last home game of the finals. And Captain Alex Ovechkin’s emotional post-game performance and obviously heartfelt comments after finally winning the title spoke volumes about how much this all meant to him and his equally grateful teammates. So, good for the 2017-18 champion Capitals, and good for the rest of us exulting in their remarkable playoff run this year, including this grateful follower watching from afar in Fauquier County, thoroughly delighted to forget the bad old days, as well.

Who is our hero? Everyone in this crowd. Everyone at home watching on TV, and all those still here after years of heartbreak. Add to that everyone who discovered a love for a sport they never knew much about before watching the Caps finally break through last week. Now we’re part of a red tide rolling onto the streets, high-fiving and howling at the moon like proud wolves in celebration. Those of us who were there, we who remained faithful, who believed in our team and never gave up. We are heroes. A city, nay an entire region, from Richmond to Baltimore is now finally celebrating. To our true heroes on the ice, we say thank you. And for the record, the name on the back of the jersey is that of Alex Ovechkin, a Russian fellow whose name is now etched forever on the Stanley Cup.

The friendly confines of Athey Field Falcons win state quarter, 3-2 By Jeff Malmgren Times Staff Writer

Carson McCusker and his teammates didn’t exist the last time Fauquier won a state tournament baseball game. But they made their presence felt June 5 by beating Amherst, 3-2, during the Class 4 state quarterfinals at home in Warrenton with McCusker hitting a two-run single and pitching 2 2/3 innings for the save. They became the second Falcon team to win a state game; the first was in 1998. “Something so rare, it’s huge,” Fauquier coach Matt O’Saben said. “It’s a lot of guys that don’t want this ride to end. … We’re made up of guys that have been playing together forever, and they want to keep playing together.” Back in 1998, Fauquier made its first state appearance. The Falcons beat Grafton 14-3 in the Group AA quarterfinals, then lost to Dan River, 3-2, in the semis. Fauquier returned to the AA state tournament in 2004 but lost in the quarterfinals. In 2015, O’Saben’s Falcons lost in the semifinals, which served as the first round of state that season.

So McCusker earned the save after allowing one run on four hits and two walks while striking out two. “I don’t know what was happening to me,” the junior said of the seventh inning. “I started babying the ball a little bit. “Then I just heard Coach Matt yell, ‘Throw it’ from the dugout, because I was aiming it more than throwing it,” McCusker said. “Once I heard that, and got that through my head, I just started … throwing more strikes.” Fauquier starting pitcher Lane Pearson earned the win by allowing PHOTO BY RANDY LITZINGER only one run on two hits and two Lane Pearson (above) started and Carson McCusker finished last week’s 3-2 win walks while striking out three over 4 over Amherst in the Class 4 quarterfinals in Warrenton. 1/3 innings.

Longer strides equal victory for Casall By Betsy Burke Parker Special to the Times

It came down to the last exuberant stride from the last horse on the last day at the oldest horse show in the nation to clinch headline victory, a bold leap from Ali Wolff’s Casall propelling the pair to win Sunday’s $216,000 CSI**** jumper classic. A field of 31 representing six nations tackled Marina Azevedo’s 13-effort first-round course. Eight advanced to the jump-off, eight fences scattered widely across the main Salem Farm arena, a test made up of not so much jumper turns as extended gallops. Azevedo’s open route was key to victory, Wolff said. She went last in the jump-off, and used the time to hatch a plan. She knew to beat the fast, clear round of pathfinder Cormac Hanley – clean in 43.09 – she’d have to really run between fences, using longer strides to finish faster. An exuberant leap over the first fence set the tone for Casall’s entire round, said the 28-year-old pro, and his confidence over the last fence clinched it. “He left out a stride to the first,” said a wideeyed Wolff later, who was left wondering about the timing leading to a key jump. “Seeing the forward nine (strides) …. is a little terrifying (leading into) to a monster vertical.” Still, the strategy paid off, with Casall clear and fast in 41.5 to beat Ireland’s Kevin Babington and Shorapur – 43.01, and fellow countryman Hanley on VDL Cartello. Babington said he lost his stirrup at the third to last jump. “I lost maybe a split second trying to get that back,” he said. “It still wouldn’t have made a difference … she blew us away.” Casall, a 13-year-old Holsteiner, won the Welcome Stakes at Devon last week. As a junior, Wolff won North American Young Rider Conference gold, and she’s represented the U.S. in Nations Cup classes. Upperville was her first international grand prix score. A native of Columbus, Ohio, Wolff graduated from Pace University with a business degree, but her heart is in the jumper ring, she said. She turned pro two years ago, and currently has three active grand prix horses and several young horses she’s bringing up through the ranks. “This is my second year coming (to Upperville),” Wolff said. “There are so many horse shows we can choose from these days. They have quality footing, high standards, they treat horses and athletes amazing.” FEI show organizer Mike Morrisey said what started as a local backyard event has steadily ascended into relevance on an international stage.

HORSE BRIEFS DRESSAGE Homestead show set June 24

Homestead Farm hosts a dressage show on Sunday, June 24. All levels are offered, and points count for Virginia Dressage Association and Commonwealth Dressage and Combined Training Association. See foe entry details.


Rider Ali Wolff was pleased with Casall’s winning run in front of a packed crowd with a pressure-cooked atmosphere at the 165th Upperville Colt and Horse Show. “This is one of the most important horse shows in the U.S.,” Morrisey said. “The committee elevated it to a whole new level with all the improvements to the rings and the footing.”

Rave reviews

Show president Mike Smith called the 2018 renewal the most successful to date, with entries, classes and sponsors all up. The trend will continue, Smith said. “We’ve been talking to landowner Shelby Bonnie (to develop) another jumper ring, so stay tuned.” Show vice-president Barbara Roux, whose St. Bride’s Farm was title sponsor, said success is tied to two things, top-quality footing, plus, “we do southern hospitality well,” with exhibitor events and sponsor swag.

It’s about empowering, strengthening and inspiring

Six graduate from first ‘Be the Change Foundation’ classes

Six graduates celebrated completion of a debut 12-week course offered by Be The Change Foundation focused on starting and/or building a business. Graduates included (l-r) Caroline Elgin, Ana Montoya, Sandy Copeland, Anna Kakadelis, Elizabeth Verna and Renee Beavers.

By Anita L. Sherman Community Editor

Lots of attention is given at this time of year to hundreds of graduates from middle school, high school, college and graduate school. On Sunday, June 3, a small group of six attended a very special and unique graduation ceremony. Held at A La Carte Catering in Vint Hill, some 30 gathered to pay tribute and congratulate the first group to graduate from the Be the Change Foundation’s series of classes. Focused on empowering women, the 12-week series is all about starting and/or building a small business. Topics ranged from writing business plans to understanding profits and losses, keeping books, branding, advertising, social media and whether it’s a good idea to hire your sister to work for you. In other words, all aspects of what it takes to launch your own enterprise. Held at Lord Fairfax Community College, each workshop was presented by local professionals. Designed specifically for a small group, each session provided plenty of opportunity for questions and answers. Before each class, local business people shared their experiences and offered advice. One comment that resonated came from Tim Dingus, owner of Drum and Strum in Warrenton. “Surround yourself with good people,” he told them. “It’s often hard to delegate, but you’re not going to know everything…but get people in who do.” “I really enjoyed the program. I


gained valuable knowledge about small business,” said Elizabeth Verna, one of the participants. “These personal stories, along with the lesson each week, offered so much insight and encouragement.” Verna’s husband and three of her children were there to cheer her success. “Something I will take with me into my future endeavors is a renewed sense of confidence and plentiful optimism, which I think all small business owners possess,” she added. Amelia Stansell, who works at Middleburg Bank and serves on the Be the Change board, gave a lively presentation on social networking – everything from where to place your nametag when working a room to the value of cultivating connections when building a business. Each presenter and each guest business owner left a lasting impression with the group. Founder and president of Be the Change Foundation Marianne Clyde attended every workshop, as did many of the board members as they were able. While on the chilly and drizzly

side Sunday, the dreary weather did nothing to dampen the spirits of those who attended. There were lots of smiles, hugs, enthusiasm and energy. For Clyde, who along with Cynthia Legg and Lisa Burnside conceived the idea in 2016 of offering such a series, it marked the culmination of their vision. While this inaugural series is finished, it is also the beginning of more to come. In 2018, Clyde expanded membership on the board, which now numbers seven. In addition, there is an advisory council. Several of those members attended including Mark and Gloria Williams and Sylvia McDevitt. “Thank you so much for coming to our first graduating class of our first series of workshops,” said a smiling Clyde. “This is a debut.” Co-founder Legg shared comments about each graduate, taking special notice of their individual personalities and dreams, and her optimism for their future success. Board member Pamela Symington introduced the owner of A La

Carte Catering, Karen Baker, who shared her own story of growing up with a love for food and people, which eventually brought her to Virginia and at the helm of one the area’s leading caterers. “Answer the question to yourself, why are you doing this? What’s the why?” said Baker who urged the graduates to listen to their own hearts and not let others, particularly family, discourage their dreams. “Surround yourself with positive people and positive energy…if there’s negativity, you don’t need it.” After certificates were distributed and delightful munchies consumed, the now close-knit group of new friends shared their plans. Several said they have others in mind to whom they plan to recommend the next series of classes, which begin in September. The first graduating class consisted of Caroline Elgin, Elizabeth Verna, Sandy Copeland, Anna Kakadelis, Ana Montoya and Renee Beavers. “Be the change class – don’t be late or you’ll miss the entrepreneurial spotlight! My favorite part of the class. I loved hearing local business owners tell us about their journey, trials and accomplishments in opening their own business. They were so inspiring! It really gave me the confidence to think…I can do this too,” said Beavers, known by her classmates for her bubbly and effervescent personality. Registration is now open for the next series of workshops which will begin in September.

Marking a centennial at Grace Episcopal Church, The Plains By John Toler

Associate Editor

On Sunday, June 24, the congregation of Grace Episcopal Church will celebrate 100 years since the consecration of their church building on Main Street in The Plains. The consecration service, while not a re-enactment, will recall the historic event that occurred 100 years ago, according to the Rev. Weston Mathews, rector of Grace Church. Special guests will include Fauquier native The Right Rev. Ted Gulick Jr., assistant bishop of Virginia (retired), who will preach the sermon, and former clergy, including the Very Rev. Zachary Fleetwood, the Rev. Caroline Parkinson and the Rev. Dr. Brown Morton. A festive day is planned, with tours of the grounds led by a church historian and a community lunch. The centennial will continue through the summer with special events planned for the church’s Homecoming on Sept. 9, 2018.

A brief history of Grace Church

While the celebration marks 100 years in the existing buildings, Grace Episcopal Church is much older – consecrated in 1855 in a frame, cruciform building on the same site. At the time, Episcopalians living in the area had to travel to Trinity Church in Marshall, and needed a closer place to worship. Work was begun in April 1854 on a 1-acre lot in the town donated by Dr. Alex Chapman. Other principal contributors to the church included Edward Turner of the Netherlands, Thomas Henderson of Roland, and Robert Beverley of Avenel. Grace was originally part of Piedmont Parish, and shared a rector with Trinity and Emmanuel Episcopal in Delaplane. After the difficult years of the Civil War, Grace became part of the new Whittle Parish, where it remains today. There were significant changes during the late 19th century. In 1870, the congregation established Whittle Chapel at Hopewell for parishioners living far-off in the Bull Run Mountains. It would serve until falling into

Now 100 years old, Grace Episcopal Church continues as “A place of spiritual refreshment and Christian fellowship; a haven, a place of beauty, peace, renewal and strength.”

Consecration, 100 years ago

Built in 1855, the original Grace Episcopal Church in The Plains served until 1918. disuse and was torn down about 1900. In 1887, a split in the congregation resulted in the establishment of the Church of Our Savior at Little Georgetown, near Thoroughfare Gap. This break was caused when the Rev. James Grammer, rector of Grace, refused communion to parishioners who indulged in waltzing, which he believed to be “sacrilegious, immoral and indecent.” Among those involved with the break-away church was James Bradshaw Beverley, who was instrumental in the founding of the chapel. With the passage of time, the parishioners returned to The Plains, and the chapel and the cemetery surrounding it remain an important part of Grace Church.

Building the stone church

The Rev. Edmund Lee Woodward served as the rector of Grace Church from 1914-21, and it was during his tenure that the planning and construction of the present church began. Selected as the architect for the project was W. H. Irwin Fleming of Washington D.C., who designed several fine homes and other buildings

in Fauquier County. The design he selected was that of 13th century rural English Gothic architecture, constructed of local stone. The design and scope of the project elicited strong community support, as neighboring property owners, and the people of The Plains pitched in to help. The building required 1,000 four-horse wagonloads of stone hauled in from neighboring farms. The largest donor was Mrs. R. H. Downman of nearby Ravenscroft, who provided a large amount of stone from her fields and falling-down stone walls. Fleming managed the construction to the point that he directed the stone masons to pick the green stones for prominent placement for the exterior walls and the others in less visible areas. The cornerstone was laid with the silver trowel used by George Washington in 1793 to lay the cornerstone of the Capitol Building in Washington D.C. The congregation continued to worship in the 1855 church as the new structure rose behind it. Once the work was done, the old frame church was demolished.

The consecration of the new Grace Episcopal Church in The Plains was conducted on the morning of Friday, June 28, 1918, beginning at 11 a.m. As recounted in the consecration Order of the Ceremonies, “It is a witness in stone of what great things God hath wrought, where devoted hearts are united in His service. Here is a typical rural parish which in four years has given a third of its former bounds to strengthen a weaker neighboring parish, doubled its own communicant membership, quadrupled its gifts for current support and missions, and provided the unprecedented sum of nearly $50,000 for rebuilding the rectory and church and for new parish house.” The weather was perfect for the ceremony, and although it was taking place during a busy harvest time, every seat was filled, as well as chairs placed in the aisles.

Marking a centennial at Grace Episcopal Church, The Plains CENTENNIAL, from Page 27 Music was provided by a full vested choir, composed of the choirs of St. James’ Church, Warrenton; St. James’ Church, Leesburg; and St. Paul’s Church, Haymarket. Mrs. Charlotte Nelson Holt of St. James’, Warrenton, played the organ. Representatives of the other Episcopal churches in the region were present, as well as friends from other denominations. The service began with a procession of the clergy led by the Bishop of Virginia, the Right Rev. Robert A. Gibson who also served as the consecrator. Reaching the front door of the church, Bishop Gibson knocked three times, in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. The door was opened by Junior Warden Edward C. Turner and the vestry, who gave welcome on behalf of the congregation waiting inside. As the procession passed through the center aisle, they recited the 24th Psalm, and the congregation sang Hymn 485, “I Love Thy Kingdom, Lord.” At this point, “…the instrument of donation was read by A. Walton Fleming, registrar of the vestry, and presented to the bishop by James R. Foster, senior warden, accompanied by the vestry,” according to the Order of the Ceremonies. After placing the instrument on the holy table, Gibson read special prayers for consecration, and then delegated the reading of the sentence of consecration to Rector Dr. Edmund Lee Woodward, who placed it on the table. The bishop’s blessing closed the act of consecration. The first worship service in the new church then followed. Morning Prayer was read by the Rev. William Meade, great-grandson of Bishop William Meade, who consecrated the original church in 1855, and other visiting clergy. The ante-communion was read by Bishop Brown who read the Epistle, and the Rev. Dr. S.A. Wallis, the

Gibson, as celebrant, conducted the service through communion, which was served to more than 200 communicants. Following the Consecration Col-

Looking back, looking ahead

June 2018 marks another anniversary, the one-year mark since the Rev. Weston Mathews was called to serve as the 21st rector of Grace

Episcopal Church. Ordained in Alexandria in 2014, Mathews, 37, served at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Richmond for three years before coming to Grace Church in June 2017. He and his wife Hannah reside in The Plains. Building on existing ministries led by strong lay leadership, Mathews has been working with the congregation to build even stronger ties with the community. This is being done through the free community lunch on the fourth Saturday of each month, Summer Meals for Kids, Food First Sunday ministries, the 3rd annual Grace Car and Truck Show to benefit Rise Against Hunger, the Grace Concert Series and the Piedmont Regional Art Show and Sale. Mathews adds that the parish hall continues to be available for weekly Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, civic events, painting classes and the Community Music School of the Piedmont. New in 2018-19 is a partnership between Grace Church and the Shakespeare Opera Theatre, which will feature performances such as “Amal and the Night Visitors” in December 2018, and “Romeo and Juliet” in February 2019. Several new initiatives are underway to honor the consecration anniversary. Funds are being raised to install a new digital carillon, restoring an old tradition of calling parishioners to worship and heralding special seasons of the church year. An energy audit was conducted this spring by Dr. Tom Nutt-Powell of Massachusetts Interfaith Power and Light to guide the church’s vision for a more sustainable and energy-efficient campus. Finally, discernment is underway to consider a revitalized, faith-based preschool at the church to serve young families in The Plains and surrounding areas. Contact John Toler at

Prince William County has created a web app for its historical markers

Online application showcases historical markers There’s good news for history buffs and those who have a goal of seeing all 101 historical markers in Prince William County. The county created a new, web-based application for users to learn about the location of historical markers and read the citations that each bear. “The web application is an innovative presentation of the Historical Commission’s Marker Guide with interactive maps that can be used on any device with a web browser and connection to the internet,” said Prince William County archeologist Justin Patton. Patton said the markers recognize a wide range of subjects. “They identify locations of historic buildings and events,” he said. “They also recognize important persons and groups in the county’s shared past.” For example, the web application shows that one of the markers in Occoquan talks about Capt. John Smith exploring the region in 1608. Another at U.S. 1, near Prince William Forest Park, notes that in April 1781, the Marquis de Lafayette “passed through the county on the King’s Highway with a portion of Gen. George Washington’s army.” Markers in the western end of the county note the 22 Civil War battles that were fought in the Manassas area. A marker in Brentsville shows it was Prince William County’s fourth county seat, and that Col. John S. Mosby operated out of the area during the Civil War. There are multiple categories that can help narrow searches for interested users. Those categories include Prince William Forest Park, Colonial Virginia, Washington-Rochambeau Road, Historic Brentsville, Orange and Alexandria Railroads, battlefields and Journey through Hallowed Ground. The online Historical Marker Guide can be found at or from the Planning Department’s webpage at

New historic marker honors Lovings on their 60th Anniversary Sixty years ago, Caroline County natives Richard and Mildred Loving traveled to Washington D.C., to get married, a trip necessitated by Virginia’s 1924 Racial Integrity Act, which forbid unions between couples of different racial backgrounds. On June 2, Virginia unveiled a historical marker dedicated to the late couple whose lawsuit against the commonwealth of Virginia led to a U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing interracial marriage across the country. The marker, on U.S. Route 301 in Caroline County, was dedicated in a ceremony June 2. It’s located about 11 miles west of Central Point, where Richard and Mildred grew up, according to a press release issued by the Virginia Department of Historical Resources. “This historical marker memorializes the powerful story of Richard and Mildred Loving and their courage to fight a state law prohibiting marriage between people of different races,” said Gov. Ralph Northam(D), in a statement. “Their perseverance and sacrifice profoundly changed American society for the better, and with this marker we commemorate an important part of Virginia’s history and ensure that their story continues to be told.” The Caroline County marker is the second highlighting the Lovings’ case. Last year, a marker celebrating the 50th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court decision, Loving

v. Virginia, was dedicated in Richmond on Capitol Square in front of the building that housed the Virginia Supreme Court, where the case was heard, the press release said. The new marker tells more details about the couple and what happened to them when they returned to live in Caroline County after their June 2, 1958, wedding. “They were arrested for violating [Virginia’s] laws against interracial marriage, which made it a felony for interracial couples to leave Virginia, marry and resume residence in the state,” the text of the marker says. In 1959, the Lovings were convicted at the Caroline County courthouse. In 1963, with the assistance of the American Civil Liberties Union, the couple challenged their convictions under the law, and their case reached the Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals, which upheld Virginia laws in a 1966 decision. Through subsequent appeal, Loving v. Virginia reached the U.S. Supreme Court, which ruled in favor of the couple on June 12, 1967, in a decision that struck down Virginia’s Racial Integrity Act and all state laws prohibiting marriage between people of different races. “The decision had an immediate impact throughout Virginia and in a number of states across the country and is considered a milestone in advancing civil rights nationally,” the press release said.

Mildred and Richard Loving photographed after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down Virginia’s miscegenation law in 1967. Richard died in a car accident in 1975. Mildred died in 2008. The aim of the marker is to commemorate the Lovings’ contribution to Virginia and the country. “Today we know Virginia is for lovers,” said Randall Jones, a spokesman for the Virginia Department of Historic Resources. “The Lovings and a Supreme Court decision made it true for the nation.” Text of marker: Richard and Mildred Loving Richard Loving and Mildred Jeter, of different racial backgrounds, grew up near Central Point, 11 miles east of here. They fell in love and in June 1958

were married in Washington, D.C. After returning to Central Point, they were arrested for violating the state’s laws against interracial marriage, which made it a felony for interracial couples to leave Virginia, marry, and resume residence in the state. The Lovings were convicted in 1959 at the Caroline County courthouse. The case reached the Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals, which in 1966 upheld the state’s laws. In 1967 the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark ruling in Loving v. Virginia overturned all laws prohibiting interracial marriage.

Battlefield protection effort reaches 50,000-acre milestone With its acquisition of 13 acres at Cedar Creek in the Shenandoah Valley, the American Battlefield Trust reached a historic milestone: 50,000 acres of hallowed ground saved at battlefields of the Revolutionary War, War of 1812 and Civil War. The milestone was announced at the recent opening of the Trust’s annual conference in Newport News. The American Battlefield Trust is best known for its work as the Civil War Trust, now a division under the American Battlefield Trust banner. The umbrella organization and its predecessors have cumulatively protected 50,000 acres at more than 130 battlefields and associated sites spread across 24 states, from Glorieta Pass in New Mexico to Lexington in Massachusetts. Trust President James Lighthizer told members and supporters gathered in Newport News that much of that progress has occurred just since 2014. In that time period, more than 10,000 acres of progress has been made at historic shrines such as Antietam’s “Epicenter” tract near Dunker Church; Gen. Robert E. Lee’s now-restored headquarters at Gettysburg; and a War of 1812 battlefield in New York where Americans wrested dominance over Lake Ontario from the British.

The Trust drew within striking distance of the 50,000-acre milestone in 2017 with deals to protect Civil War sites at Appomattox Court House, Shiloh, Gettysburg, Second Manassas, Trevilian Station, and Prairie D’Ane in Arkansas. So far in 2018, the Trust has most notably acquired battlefield acreage at Corinth and Champion Hill in Mississippi; Brown’s Ferry and Fort Donelson in Tennessee; and Appomattox Court House, Brandy Station, Cold Harbor and Second Deep Bottom in Virginia. The Virginia property, known to modern-day residents as the Battle of Cedar Creek Campground, figured in the fierce Oct. 19, 1864, battle that gave the Union control over the Valley. The parcel includes one of the few remaining sections of the Valley Pike, among the nation’s first engineered roads – 22 feet wide, ditched and “macadamized.” The property was acquired with the assistance of the Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Foundation and the HTR Foundation. To help the American Battlefield Trust continue its battlefield preservation efforts, visit savebattlefields to learn more about current projects across the nation.

It’s a BIG weekend for tiny homes

The latest news from and about the Fauquier County public library

DC/Virginia Tiny House Festival coming June 15-17 Tiny houses are about to be a big deal this weekend. The 2018 DC/Virginia Tiny House Festival is coming to the Prince William County Fairgrounds in Manassas June 15-17. The festival is being hosted by the United Tiny House Association, which has organized some of the largest tiny house conventions in the country. This year, UTHA will put on three events, the Virginia tiny house festival and two others this fall in Massachusetts and Florida. The Virginia festival opens on Friday afternoon and continues through the weekend with tiny house tours, seminars and presentations on a range of topics dealing with tiny house living. The United Tiny House Association was founded in 2015 by John and Fin Kernohan, of Georgia, to support the tiny house movement and individuals either “living the tiny house dream or hoping to begin their own tiny house journey,” according to the UTHA website. The Kernohans walk the walk. They have lived in their self-built 304-square-foot tiny house, which they call “Beloved Cabin,” since December 2011. They currently reside a small homestead in Georgia, where they use solar energy, collect rain water, raise chickens and grow their own vegetables and fruits, according to their website. The two have years of experience with organizing nonprofit outdoor concerts and festivals as fundraisers for students and college-bound homeschool students. Previous tiny house festivals organized by the Kernohans have attracted as many as 60,000 attendees, according to their website. The United Tiny House Association embraces all modalities of tiny living, including professional-built

‘Managing Invasive Weeds Workshop’: June 19 and 26 Invasive plants are non-native plants with high reproductive potential are the bane of all gardeners and homeowners. They have a pesky habit of outcompeting our native species for sunlight, nutrients and real estate, but help is on the way. The Virginia  Cooperative Extension, Virginia Department of Forestry and Fauquier and Rappahannock Master Gardeners will

present, “Managing Invasive Weeds Workshop” on two successive Tuesdays: June 19 and June 26 at 6 p.m. in Warrenton.  These plants  often produce large quantities of seed, have aggressive root systems, thrive in disturbed areas and some even produce chemicals that make it difficult for other plants to grow near them.   Gardeners can learn how to manage the invasive plant bullies in gar-

den and forest areas. The training will cover the biology and identification of many weedy plants. Handson practice and a review of safe practices around chemical use will also be offered.  Participants also will have a chance to practice measuring and mixing these herbicides and will learn how to apply them with various types of equipment.    The fee is $30 and includes resource

materials and refreshments. Individuals may also register by stopping by the VCE office at 24 Pelham St. in Warrenton to complete the registration process and make payment with cash or check made payable to Treasurer of Virginia Tech  or  call  540341-7950, ext. 3.  The program is open to the public and will take place rain or shine. Participants should plan to attend both days.   

Eight highly invasive plants commonly seen in Fauquier County: • Tree-of-heaven (Ailanthus altissima) • Autumn olive (Elaeagnus umbellate) • Japanese stiltgrass (Microstegium vimineum) • Garlic mustard (Alliaria petiolate) • Wineberry (Rubus phoenicolasius) • Multiflora rose (Rosa multiflora) • Oriental bittersweet (Celastrus orbiculatus) • Japanese honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica)


Many aggressive vines such as kudzu, English ivy and oriental bittersweet, pictured here, are detrimental to tree and forest healthy.

A chance for kids to learn to sew row by row “I learned to sew on a sewing machine and I made this!” That’s what hundreds of quilt shops across America and Canada hope to hear from kids ages 6 to 14 in their communities this summer.  Local quilt shop proprietors like Kelly Ann’s Quilting in Warrenton are welcoming kids to their shops, June 21 through October 31, by participating in Row by Row Junior. It’s the kids’ version of the widely popular summertime travel event for quilt-making fans known as Row by Row Experience. Kids visit shops in person and collect a free sewing pattern designed just for them to make. They’ll find encouragement and be inspired by the colorful, creative world of sewing right in their own hometown. “We want to introduce kids to the intrinsic benefits of learning how to sew,” says Janet Lutz, creator of

Row by Row Experience. “Making things on today’s modern sewing machines incorporates all the elements of STEM education in an artful way that builds self-esteem and perseverance.” When offered for the first time in 2017, Row by Row Junior was the largest initiative of its kind ever attempted in the sewing industry. This year, six new patterns and project ideas designed around the theme “Sew Musical” will appeal to kids and their families. “Fostering intergenerational relationships and learning to sew at home is important to the Row by Row Junior program,” says Lutz. Kids will enjoy the uniquely educational experience of visiting the shops. At home, families can find free tutorial support and activities online by visiting

New dean Ia Gomez brings passion for science, art to her role The art decorating the office of new Science, Engineering, Math and Health Dean Ia Gomez is as colorful as she is. The paintings and models of the DNA double-helix were done by her former students at Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) Manassas Campus where she was the associate dean of science and applied technologies until accepting the deanship at LFCC in April. She is taking the position left vacant when previous dean, Karen Kellison, was promoted to vice president of academic and student affairs. Gomez spent 11 years at NOVA, and her previous positions there included biotechnology program head and assistant dean of science. She also taught biology and biotechnology. “I have always wanted to do more and think outside the box, and I think I will be able to do so as dean of science, engineering, math and health,” Gomez says. Kellison sees Gomez’s professional depth as an asset. “Dr. Gomez is an expert in her field and brings to her role the perspectives she gained while a faculty member and an administrator,” she says. “Her leadership will help the

college maintain current programs while also adding in-demand programs to our array of offerings.” A new resident in Warrenton, Gomez is especially excited about the new Hazel Hall, an academic building that will have science, health and engineering classrooms when it’s completed on the Fauquier Campus. “That was one of the main reasons I was so excited – that new building is going to come with new opportunities,” Gomez says. “I’m very passionate about expanding the STEM

areas and growing programs.” At NOVA each April, Gomez would organize – with her students’ help – special celebrations of National DNA Day commemorating the discovery of the double helix in 1953 and the completion of the Human Genome Project 50 years later. “I like to get engaged with students outside the classroom because I believe extracurricular activities can enhance student success and get them motivated about what they’re studying,” Gomez says. The National DNA Day celebrations would often include art contests – which is how she came by her office decorations. Other activities during the all-day events included experiments, face painting, singing, DNA-themed jewelry making and guest speakers. Gomez also led various STEM initiatives in her prior role, such as STEM academies for high schoolers, IT and cyber security promotions and a community STEM Fest. At LFCC, Gomez will prioritize enhancing and growing programs, as well as developing and enhancing collaborations with other institutions of higher learning, area school districts, industry and local government.

“I also want to collaborate with other departments to promote and enhance student success,” she says. “My whole passion for my job is kind of like a mix of my father and my mother.” Her father is a professor emeritus in the department of animal production at the University of Cordoba, in the Andalusia region of Spain where Gomez grew up. Her mother is an artist. It was at the University of Cordoba where Gomez attained her Ph.D. in biochemistry with a concentration in molecular biology. Part of Gomez’s Ph.D. research was conducted at Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y. and at the University of Liege in Belgium. She completed post-doctoral fellowships at the University of Connecticut Health Center. Gomez and her husband, James Ross, have a 13-year-old son, Jaymes.

LFCC to start offering credit classes in Rappahannock County Lord Fairfax Community College is joining forces with RappU in a bid to bring more Rappahannock County residents to the higher education table. Three classes bearing LFCC credits will be offered in Rappahannock County starting Aug. 20. They are U.S. History 121, Public Speaking 100 and Music Appreciation 121. RappU is a nonprofit that offers

lifelong-learning classes and workforce development courses in Rappahannock County. Caroline Wood, the dean of LFCC’s Fauquier campus in Warrenton, says the two organizations have been discussing offering some Lord Fairfax classes in partnership with RappU since earlier this year. “Of course, we have been serv-

ing Rappahannock County residents at our Fauquier campus, but we also want to be able to bring some of our classes closer to home for those unable to make it to campus,” Wood says. Bringing LFCC classes to Rappahannock County will benefit those who lack adequate transportation, or who may not be comfortable commuting to Warrenton, says Kathy Grove, who is on the RappU Board of Directors, and is the treasurer of Headwaters, a Sperryville-based organization that provides mentoring; offers college, vocational and career resources; gives educational grants and more. “Educational opportunities can be particularly challenging in rural areas, and not every household has three vehicles – one for each parent and another for a child living at home,” Grove says. The LFCC classes should be attractive to a variety of students, whether they are fresh out of high school – or even still in high school as dual-enrolled students – are looking to revamp or change their careers or are lifelong learners, according to Grove. “This has the potential to increase employability, increase income for our residents, and maybe even keep more residents from having to move out of Rappahannock County,” she says. Wood agrees. “It’s getting their feet wet,” she says of those who might find it intimidating to take the first steps needed to attain a degree. “They can go to college in their neighborhood, and then

realize they really can do it, that this is something that is achievable and is something they can do anywhere. “We’re very student-focused. We pride ourselves on being with our students through the whole process so they don’t feel like just a number.” Grove was one of the founders of RappU, which she has seen expand from just offering lifelong learning classes to now offering workforce programs, such as certified nurse aide, phlebotomy technician and certified clinical medical assistant. “We’ve always dreamed of having some Lord Fairfax classes,” she says. “I’m so pleased the college’s administration is open to the possibility.” Wood noted financial aid will be available to those who qualify. Classroom locations are still being determined. Learn more about the classes by visiting Starting June 25, you can also find more information at

May the cure be with you


This was my first year participating in Fauquier County’s Relay for Life event. I had decided to join the newpaper’s FT Warriors team to honor two people close to my heart. First, my husband Don who survived a bout with colon cancer last year. Secondly, to honor a good friend’s granddaughter, Austen, diagnosed with RMS (Rhabdomyosarcoma). At 5, Austen has recently completed a 24-week chemo regimen. All good for now. With high heat and thunderstorms predicted, the event was moved inside at Fauquier High School. That was a good move as the sky darkened and the rains did pour. But inside the gym was a different story. Spirits were high and the energy contagious. Thirty groups formed a large oval of supporters around the indoor track. Several had tents set up. All of them had food and fun things. This year’s theme was Star Wars so look out for dueling light sabers and costumed walkers. After a few times around the track you can’t help but notice the different T-shirts representing the myriad of teams from church groups and businesses to the Boy Scouts and Jazzercise dancers. They are all walking for different reasons – remembering a loved one, supporting another, offering inspiration, hoping to make a difference. Their paces are

Top Individuals different. Each has their own rhythm, some at a good clip, others slower and some breaking into runs or fun skips. Round and round we went. As I looked around the room, it was clear that sex, race, age, disability or political persuasion didn’t matter or were even considered. This is an event where common ground is shared – a cure for cancer. And not only a cure but an attitude while the challenge continues. That attitude is positive, empowering, inspiring and also tenacious, gritty and, in keeping with this year’s theme, “may the force be with you.” White bags, each creatively and thoughtfully decorated, lined the side gym for the evening’s luminary ceremony. Cans kept them weighted, glow sticks provided the light. The room darkened, and hundreds of white bags now glowed softly in shades of pink, yellow and purple. Inside the circle, the bags were arranged to spell

As we walked in silence, I saw the many, many names of grandfathers, fathers, husbands, brothers, uncles, grandmothers, mothers, sisters, aunts, friends and relatives. One young girl sat in front of her bag, protective, sorrowful. So many names, each representing a unique story of a loss, a struggle, a wish, a prayer. There were tears, heavy sighs, a quiet, shared acknowledgement that cancer is the reality and a cure, the hope. And then it was moving from the dark back to the light and more walking. The relay in Fauquier lasts 12 hours and there was a small group who, in fact, walked for the 12 hours with intermittent 10-minute breaks. One in particular caught my atten-

tion. He was a slight gentleman, walking at a good clip carrying a long string of colored beads. It was estimated that roughly eight laps around the track equaled about one mile. You could reach into several buckets of beads, pull one out and add it to a long, thin plastic thread to keep track. His smile never wavered. As dawn came and went and things started to wrap up, folks were noticeably fatigued. Some snuggled in sleeping bags on the floor. Perhaps physically tired but in spirit, tireless. The fight goes on. I walked beside James C. Thomas for a while. At 60, he told me that this is the fifth year that he has been a 12-hour walker. “I’m walking for my sister and my mother,” he shared with me. The intrepid group of 12-hour walkers led the final lap. Logged in at 28 miles for the event, Thomas was pleased, “I enjoy this, it’s fun and it’s for a good cause.” I felt the same. For me, this man’s walking summed it all up…consistent, determined, and uplifting. Not so much in the sense that hundreds walking will lead to a cure but hundreds walking in community says that there is love, support and care and that makes our lives just that much better.

Start your next camping trip … at the library Do you love sleeping under the stars, toasting marshmallows, listening to campfire stories and spending time in the great outdoors? Then grab your tent and sleeping bag, and hit the camp trail this month, for June is National Camping Month! Camping is an opportunity to unplug and tune into nature -- listening to crickets and birds, fishing for some dinner to grill over the campfire, hiking in the woods, and observing the stars in the nighttime sky. Spending time in nature can be a wonderfully fun adventure, as well as restorative. There are some terrific camping locations nearby -- Shenandoah National Park, Sky Meadows State Park, Shenandoah River State Park and Prince William Forest Park all offer camping; log onto their web site to learn more or make a reservation. Nature backpacks, available at all three library locations, are fun and informative, with field guides, specimens, tools and activities for families to explore the outdoors. And don’t forget to bring a book of scary stories to read in the dark! Fauquier County Public Library is celebrating the wonder of the great

outdoors during National Camping Month at the library was part of the 2018 summer reading program. It will be a very fun event for campers in grades K-5, with stories about camping, camping games, crafts and information about camping safety.

Here are just a few to get you started.

Welcome new Catlett/Calverton/ Casanova columnist A community is a group of people living together in the same place, sharing the same interests. It is also a feeling of fellowship with others. For me and many others, this is what the Catlett, Casanova, Calverton areas represent. Virginia Copeland loved this area. She and her husband, Warren, devoted their lives to Jehoash Church. Mrs. Copeland served her community by spearheading Catlett Day activities, volunteering with the Catlett Volunteer Fire Department and working for many years at the State Bank of Remington, Catlett Branch, until her retirement. I had the pleasure of knowing Mrs. Copeland and her family. I spent many summer evenings helping to decorate the Queens’ float for the annual firemen’s parade and working with her on the Catlett Day activities. Virginia Copeland’s quiet demeanor and thoughtful ways that brought our communities together will be greatly missed by many people. I have a strong understanding of what belonging to a community means. My father, William Armstrong, recently passed away. He too loved his community and dedicated many years to both the Catlett Volunteer Fire Department and the former Cedar Run Rescue Squad by serving in many leadership roles. My husband, Jeff, and I consider ourselves “homegrown” Catlett folk. Both of our families go back several generations in the Catlett area. Jeff and I have been married for 25 years and have been blessed with two boys, Zach and Zane. I work for Fauquier County Parks and Recreation and volunteer my time as a 4-H leader, with the Trinity United Methodist Church and with the Catlett, Calverton, Casanova Ruritan Club. I am honored to continue the area news. Thanks to those of you who recommended me. I will do my very best to serve this community. As I move forward with this column, I ask each of you for your help. Let me know what activities are happening in the area. Be sure to give me your information a week in advance of the Wednesday weekly publication date. The best way to reach me is by email at or by phone/ text at 540-295-4925.

A humanitarian disaster occurs. Good people around the world respond by sending assistance. But what happens when doctors, emergency


personnel, medicine, food, and relief supplies can't reach their intended destinations to help those most in need? What happens when there are no roads to access isolated locations and hardest hit communities? Air Serv International flies to the rescue. Since 1984, Air Serv International has used aircraft to provide transportation for humanitarian organizations operating in regions too difficult or dangerous to reach by land. By flying where no one else will and reaching the most inaccessible places under the most extreme conditions, Air Serv goes the last mile to help those no one else can.
