Rep. Tom Garrett talks about dealing with alcoholism, moving on By Leland Schwartz Times Staff Writer

After telling the world he’s an alcoholic and dropping his re-election campaign for Virginia’s 5th District congressional seat, you might think Rep. Tom Garrett would be pretty bummed out. Hardly. Instead, Garrett (R) seems suspended in a whirlwind of relief, excitement and optimism about starting a new — and sober — life at age 46. “It’s nothing I can’t handle with the help of God and a support group,” he said in a recent interview. Garrett, who is finishing up the last few months

of his first term in office, said his decision to leave Congress wasn’t driven by news reports that he used his staff to run personal errands, charges he called “antithetical to the truth.” Rather, he said he’s leaving because of the introspection that followed those reports, which made him consider “what matters.” The soul searching, Garrett said, led to a different question: If “they said something about you that burned, not because it was false, but because it was true, what would that be?” Certainly, he said, it would be his alcoholism. “So where am I going to tell the world this darned secret?” he asked himself.

Garrett chose the Virginia Civil Rights Memorial at Virginia’s Capitol Square in Richmond as a backdrop for the Memorial Day video in which he made his announcement because the memorial is “about freedom,” he said. The monument celebrates Barbara Johns, the young Virginian whose protest against her underfunded and overcrowded black Farmville high school led to a lawsuit that eventually became part of Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, the landmark Supreme Court case that outlawed school segregation.

Sgt. Franz Mahler retires after three decades with the state police Sgt. Franz Mahler, a veteran member of the Virginia State Police serving in Fauquier County, recently concluded a 31-year career in law enforcement. Mahler, 55, moved up the ranks in the VSP since he was assigned to Area 12 as a trooper in December 1989. He officially retired June 1. Mahler, of Sumerduck, began his law-enforcement career in 1987 after earning a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice in New Jersey. His first job was as a special police officer for the Lake Monticello Home Owners’ Association outside of Charlottesville. While working there, he attended the basic police academy in Waynesboro. Mahler was hired by the VSP in May 1989 and began training at the

FAUQUIER FOCUS state police academy in Richmond. That was followed by six weeks of field training in Area 45 in Arlington and graduation from the 85th Basic School in December 1989. Trooper Mahler was then assigned to the Area 12 office in Warrenton, which covers Fauquier and Rappahannock counties. He spent the rest of his career here. In 2001, Mahler was promoted to senior trooper, and in 2004, to sergeant. He earned additional certification as a crime-prevention specialist and was a CPR/first aid instructor.

During his time on the Tactical Field Force, Mahler was assigned to three presidential inaugurations, several civil unrest situations, search and rescue missions and the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001. As a member of the VSP, Mahler made lasting friendships with several troopers and supervisors he met, including personnel serving on the command staff in Richmond and the new VSP Superintendent, Col. Gary T. Settle. “Sgt. Mahler has been a great leader, supervisor and example of what a ‘trooper’s supervisor’ is supposed to be,” said his colleague, Senior Trooper Derek Mabie. “He always had our best interests, asked about and cared about our families.” Sgt. Mahler plans to remain in the area and is looking forward to a promising future and new job opportunities. Sgt. Franz Mahler

State VFW commander visits Warrenton

Virginia state VFW commander Ken Wiseman shares a laugh with with Geoff Lyster and Tim Nosal during the Star Spangled First Friday Warrenton on July 6.

No ‘surprise inspections,’ just chance to meet vets

Ken Wiseman, newly elected state commander of the VFW in Virginia, took in First Friday activities in Old Town Warrenton during a weekend visit that took him to VFW posts in the region. The July 6 First Friday featured a parade of veterans down Main Street. After spending Friday in Culpeper and Warrenton, Wiseman visited the other posts in VFW’s District 8 in Morrisville, Fredericksburg, Manassas and Manassas Park. Visits like the one he made to Warrenton allow the state commander to “engage the community” about what the VFW — Veterans of Foreign Wars — is all about and to meet fellow veterans. “I don’t have any hidden motives

— no surprise inspections,” Wiseman joked. “As a state commander you get to see a lot of extra stuff,” said Wiseman, 34, a Navy veteran who worked his way up through VFW’s ranks before becoming state commander in June. He spent three years on the national legislative service staff in the VFW’s office in Washington. In that capacity, he testified to Congress on behalf of the VFW. There are more than 32,000 VFW members in Virginia. The organization helps veterans in filing claims and securing benefits that they’ve earned. Individual posts are also active in their communities. Locally, financial assistance is given to the Fauquier Free Clinic and to the homeless. Military service runs deep in his family, Wiseman noted. He has ancestors who fought in the American Revolution. While he was born and raised in North Carolina, he said his family first settled in Virginia in 1715. Reach James Ivancic at jivancic@

Highland teacher enters race to unseat Vogel By James Ivancic Times Staff Writer

Ronnie Ross, a teacher, administrator and athletic coach at Highland School in Warrenton, has announced he’s running for the Democratic nomination in the state Senate’s 27th District. If he’s nominated, he likely would face incumbent Republican Jill Vogel, who said she will run for another four-year term. Vogel hasn’t faced a Democratic challenger since 2011. The election is in November 2019. Ross said he’s among people “stepping up” to run for the first time “because the stakes are too high” not to do so. Ross also believes “everyday working people should run for office” and “not just the wealthy and the lawyer class.” Vogel is a lawyer.

Top issues: schools, economy, environment, health care

Ross said more can be done in the areas of education, the economy, the environment and health care. While the recent state budget funded a 3-percent pay increase for teachers next year, they are still behind when figures are adjusted for inflation, he said. Class sizes also are too large, and too many schools are overcapacity, making the job of teaching effectively more difficult, Ross said.

Ronnie Ross “Research says the biggest a class size should be before it negatively affects education is 25 students,” he said. The ability of a teacher to bond with students is hampered when classes are too large, he said. “Teachers are working their butts off” just to keep up, Ross said. Ross supports universal preschool to give young students a good start, as well. Regarding the economy, he said, “We need to address the wage gap.”

Not everyone has benefited from an improved economy. Wages are mostly stagnant, Ross said. An indication that households are still struggling can be seen in the fact that 60 percent of Winchester’s public school students qualify for free or reduced-price meals, he said. The 27th District includes Fauquier, Frederick and Clarke counties, Winchester, and parts of Loudoun and Culpeper counties. The Democrat said expanding

broadband to rural areas could boost economic growth, providing jobs where people live so they wouldn’t have to move elsewhere or commute long distances, he said. Ross has filed a statement of organization with the Virginia Board of Elections and will start collecting the required number of signatures from eligible voters to qualify for the ballot in January. The 31-year-old lives near Middleburg. He’s been teaching at Highland School for 10 years and is currently chairman of the English department and dean of the freshman class. Ross and his wife, Josie, have a son, Ronnie Jr. Vogel, who lives in Fauquier County, has represented the 27th District since 2008. She currently serves on the General Laws and Technology, Rules, and Finance committees, and she chairs the Privileges and Elections Committee. Vogel was the Republican Party’s nominee for lieutenant governor in 2017 but was defeated by Democrat Justin Fairfax. In a text message, she said, “I love my job and love serving our community, doing the constituent service and the legislation serving the needs of our area. I do plan to run again.” Reach James Ivancic at jivancic@

Rep. Tom Garrett: ‘I’m not dying, I am starting over.’ GARRETT from page 1 “The funny part is that it’s like watching your own funeral,” he said of the weeks that followed. “People say, ‘I’m so sorry this needed to end this way.’” But he asks, “What ended? What ended?” “This shouldn’t be a wake,” he said. “This should be a birth celebration. I am not dying, I am starting over.” Garrett said he’s “happy with where I am.” “Look at me,” he said. “I have failed a million times, but I have never been a failure.” Already, he said, life is better. “I am 34 days without a drink.” “I’m never going to be perfect,” he added. “Maybe I can be perfected, but I am never going to be perfect.”

Drinking when ‘nobody was looking’

Garrett said he had been drinking for more than 20 years but still did his job as a lawyer, state prosecutor, state senator and, since January 2017, a U.S. congressman, because: “I am disciplined.” Garrett said he spent those years “drinking to excess on a very regular basis, probably once or twice a week, just getting obliterated” when “nobody was looking.” “Just imagine what I could do when I’m not drinking?” he said with excitement. He said he’s looking forward to at least 30 more years, “God willing.” Garrett said he never drank on the House floor. “But because I didn’t drink there, I would opportunistically find my spots,” he said. “If you can find somebody to say they have seen me drunk on the floor of the Virginia Senate, the House of Representatives, in a courtroom, or anything, you’ve found a liar because it’s never happened,” he said. Garrett said he’s been asked if his drinking affected his work in Congress. He said he’s thought about it and replied: “never or always.” “What I mean is that is if you drink too much it affects you even when you’re not drinking too much,” he said. Garrett said he kept his drinking to after hours and “usually with other members but never on the floor, ever, never in committee, and never between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m.” “I just didn’t,” he added. “It was against the discipline thing.”

Still confident about a GOP win

As for his 5th District seat, Garrett predicts it will stay in Republican hands, filled by Charlottesville distillery owner and defense consultant Denver Riggleman, who was picked to be the new GOP nominee in a hastily-organized meeting of party officials in early June. He faces Democrat Leslie Cockburn in the Nov. 6 election. “There will be any number of stories about how the 5th is going to flip, but it’s not going to,” Garrett said. “We won by almost 17 [percentage points]. Denver is going to win, I would wager, by 10 [points].” University of Mary Washington media and


Rep. Tom Garrett in front of the Capitol building. politics professor Stephen Farnsworth said he thinks the odds Republicans keep the 5th District seat are a little better than 50-50. “It would take substantial winning to dislodge the natural Republican orientation” of the district, Farnsworth said in a recent interview. The 5th District stretches from Fauquier County to the North Carolina border. Farnsworth said he believes Virginia is still a purple state but notes, “The Republican party is in a difficult spot because [President] Trump generates so much hostility that you can count on high Democratic turnout.” Garrett won the 5th District with 58 percent of the vote in 2016, the same year Trump won the support of 55 percent of the district’s voters. A Democrat last won the seat in 2008, when former Rep. Tom Perriello beat his Republican opponent with 50.1 percent of the vote while President Barack Obama became the first Democrat to win Virginia since President Lyndon B. Johnson won the state in 1964. Perriello served only one term, losing the seat in 2010 to former Rep. Robert Hurt, who did not seek re-election in 2016.

Looking ahead

As for his own future, Garrett said his family, which includes his wife, Flanna, and three daughters, ages 19, 16 and 10 months, are with him and helped him decide to get out of the race. Garrett said he is going to Alcoholics Anony-

mous meetings frequently and looks forward to not having to attend meetings out of state, which he did to avoid being recognized. Even then, he said, “I’d park two blocks away.” Garrett said he’s perplexed by the stigma against alcoholics. If a congressman is seen walking into an AA meeting, he says, “The story should not be, ‘He’s an alcoholic.’ The story should be, ‘He or she is doing something to address the problem.’” Garrett said society has created a situation where, “What you ought to do, which is help yourself, is discouraged by the paradigm that’s evidenced by the harm you would do if you did help yourself.” Garrett said he hopes to eventually teach or be involved in international humanitarian affairs. Garrett said he never physically harmed anybody, “but I have come really close.” He says the harm he did was the “wear and tear I have created.” Garrett said he realizes alcoholism is “a math game” where “if you keep on living, making poor decisions, sooner or later it will catch up with you.” “So, they say you confront it usually when you hit rock bottom,” he said, adding: “If this is my rock bottom, I am a lucky son of a bitch.” “I don’t like the circumstances that led to this point, not one bit,” he said. “But I like where I am.” Leland Schwartz can be reached at lschwartz@

NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC OF AN APPLICATION BY VIRGINIA ELECTRIC AND POWER COMPANY, FOR REVISION OF RATE ADJUSTMENT CLAUSE: RIDER S, VIRGINIA CITY HYBRID ENERGY CENTER CASE NO. PUR-2018-00086 •Virginia Electric and Power Company d/b/a Dominion Energy Virginia ("Dominion") has applied for approval to revise its rate adjustment clause, Rider S. •Dominion requests a total revenue requirement of $219.966 million for its 2019 Rider S. •A Hearing Examiner appointed by the Commission will hear the case on December 5, 2018, at 10 a.m. •Further information about this case is available on the State Corporation Commission's website at: On June 1, 2018, Virginia Electric and Power Company d/b/a Dominion Energy Virginia ("Dominion" or "Company"), pursuant to § 56-585.1 A 6 of the Code of Virginia ("Code"), filed with the State Corporation Commission ("Commission") an annual update of the Company's rate adjustment clause, Rider S ("Application"). Through its Application, the Company seeks to recover costs associated with the Virginia City Hybrid Energy Center ("VCHEC" or "Project"), a 600 megawatt nominal coal fueled generating plant and associated transmission interconnection facilities located in Wise County, Virginia. In Case No. PUE-2007-00066, the Commission approved Dominion's construction and operation of VCHEC and also approved a rate adjustment clause, designated Rider S, for Dominion to recover costs associated with the development of the Project. VCITEC became fully operational in 2012. In this proceeding, Dominion has asked the Commission to approve Rider S for the rate year beginning April 1, 2019, and ending March 31, 2020 ("2019 Rate Year"). The two components of the proposed total revenue requirement for the 2019 Rate Year are the Projected Cost Recovery Factor and the Actual Cost True-Up Factor. The Company is requesting a Projected Cost Recovery Factor revenue requirement of $208,664,000 and an Actual Cost True-Up Factor revenue requirement of $11,302,000. Thus, the Company is requesting a total revenue requirement of $219,966,000 for service rendered during the 2019 Rate Year. For purposes of calculating the Projected Cost Recovery Factor in this case, Dominion utilized a rate of return on common equity ("ROE") of 10.2%, which comprises a general ROE of 9.2% approved by the Commission in its Final Order in Case No. PUR 2017-00038, plus a 100 basis point enhanced return applicable to a conventional coal generating station as described in Code § 56-585.1 A 6. For purposes of calculating the Actual Cost True-Up Factor, the Company utilized an ROE of 10.6% for the months of January 2017 through March 2017, which comprises the general ROE of 9.6% approved by the Commission in its Final Order in Case No. PUE-2015-00060, plus the 100 basis point enhanced return; an ROE of 10.4% for the period of April 1, 2017, through November 28, 2017, which comprises the general ROE of 9.4% approved by the Commission in its Order in Case No. PUE 2016-00062, plus the 100 basis point enhanced return; and an ROE of 10.2% for the period of November 29, 2017, through December 31, 2017, which comprises the general ROE of 9.2% approved by the Commission in its 2017 ROE Order, plus the 100 basis point enhanced return. If the proposed Rider S for the 2019 Rate Year is approved, the impact on customer bills would depend on the customer's rate schedule and usage. According to Dominion, implementation of its proposed Rider S on April 1, 2019, would increase the bill of a residential customer using 1,000 kilowatt hours per month by approximately $0.18. The Company proposes a change in the methodology for the calculation of a certain allocation factor beginning in 2018 to recognize the output of certain non-utility generators to be used to allocate cost responsibility to the Virginia jurisdiction. In addition, with the exception of the removal of certain Federal and retail choice customers from the Virginia Jurisdiction, the Company indicates it has calculated the proposed Rider S rates in accordance with the same methodology as used for rates approved by the Commission in the most recent Rider S proceeding, Case No. PUR-2017-00073. Interested persons are encouraged to review the Application and supporting documents for the details of these and other proposals. TAKE NOTICE that the Commission may apportion revenues among customer classes and/or design rates in a manner differing from that shown in the Application and supporting documents and thus may adopt rates that differ from those appearing in the Company's Application and supporting documents. The Commission entered an Order for Notice and Hearing that, among other things, scheduled a public hearing on December 5, 2018, at 10 a.m., in the Commission's second floor courtroom located in the Tyler Building, 1300 East Main Street, Richmond, Virginia 23219, to receive testimony from members of the public and evidence related to the Application from the Company, any respondents, and the Commission's Staff.

Fauquier supervisors to discuss overgrazing, well rules By James Ivancic Times Staff Writer

The Fauquier County Board of Supervisors will hold public hearings Thursday on proposed changes to ordinances addressing overgrazing and the location and testing of drinking-water wells, as well as a pair of special permit requests. The hearings will take place at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, July 12, in the first-floor meeting room in the Warren Green building, 10 Hotel St., Warrenton. The supervisors could act on any and all of the requests during their regular meeting that night.


Overgrazing can cause erosion and off-site migration of waste or waste by-products. The current county ordinance does not speak to overgrazing issues associated with parcels greater than 5 acres. The proposed change adds limitations on parcels greater than 5 but less than 10 acres.


A subdivision text amendment would change hydrogeological testing rules to require all new production and observation well locations to be approved by the county and the Fauquier County Water and Sanitation Authority, possibly setting aside an observation well or wells for long-term monitoring. Another proposed change would add drinking-water quality testing requirements for subdivisions with individual private wells. The new amendment would exempt property transferred within families as well as administrative and large-lot divisions. Except in the Town of Warrenton, Fauquier County depends on groundwater wells to serve all public and private drinking-water needs.

Permit requests

The supervisors will also hold a public hearing to consider a request from St. Michael’s Academy to extend its stay at the Community Christian Fellowship, 6317 Vint Hill Road, while it continues its search for a permanent facility. The academy received a one-year special exception last year. It is requesting a two-year extension. A public hearing will also be held for a special exception and a special permit on a request from Sammy’s Rental, 11520 James Madison St., Remington, to waive a requirement to connect to public sewer.

KKK flyers turn up in Prince William, Fauquier By James Ivancic Times Staff Writer

White supremacy groups seeking recruits and instilling fear were busy again this weekend in Fauquier and Prince William counties and the Town of Warrenton. Law enforcement agencies said they received multiple reports of white supremacy messages left in residential neighborhoods. Prince William County police investigated instances of pamphlets containing hate propaganda found at the ends of multiple driveways in the Gainesville and Bristow areas. “A caller reported to police that they had located a bag that contained birdseed and pamphlets that appeared to be recruiting material for the Ku Klux Klan,” Prince William County police spokesman Officer Nathan J. Probus reported in a press release. The distribution appeared random rather than targeting anyone specific. Probus said the bags were seemingly left on driveways sometime

Police: Distribution appears random during the overnight hours of Saturday into Sunday in the Gainesville area along several residential streets off Lee Highway (U.S. 29) between Carver Road and Old Carolina Road. Similar bags were also located in the Bristow Village neighborhood in the Bristow area. The bags were weighed down with birdseed and possibly thrown from a vehicle, Probus said. No property was damaged. A similar incident occurred in April 28 in the 4500 block of Forestburg Lane in Triangle. Both incidents remain under investigation. In Warrenton, more than 60 flyers were left in eight or more locations on the north and west sides of Warrenton over the weekend, Warrenton Interim Police Chief Daniel Boring said. The flyers were left in individual bags and tossed in residential areas. A similar distribution occurred last November. Residents on Norfolk Drive,

Foxcroft Road, Evans Road and Fauquier Road were among those reporting the fliers, Boring said. “At this point we’re looking into it. We’re also sharing with other agencies,” the interim chief said. “Beyond that I don’t want to say anything.” Sgt. James Hartman of the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office said that many racist flyers were collected over the weekend but said the office has decided not to publicize the incidents. The “FCSO is not issuing a release as it only serves to give this group exposure, which is exactly what they want,” Hartman said. He said flyers were reported on Free State Road in Marshall and Hazelwood Court, Mosby Drive and Meetze Road in Warrenton. Hartman said the flyers were likely distributed by the same group that left them on area driveways last November. Hartman said the Fauquier sheriff’s office is sharing information with other police agencies.

Some recipients of the KKK literature posted pictures on Facebook to report the flyers distribution. “They are all over the region and in the Shenandoah Valley,” Hartman said of the flyers. “To be frank, there is no violation here other than littering,” Hartman said. “But it is disturbing.” Reach James Ivancic at

$1M gift allows Middleburg Humane to build new shelter By Leonard Shapiro Contributing Writer

A recent $1 million gift will allow the Middleburg Humane Foundation to complete its new $4.7 million shelter facility on 23 acres at the west end of Marshall. Josh Muss, a Middleburg resident and chairman of the board of Middleburg Humane, confirmed the recent donation and said MHF will quickly select a contractor to complete work on the facility. He said he hopes it will be totally up and running by mid-winter early next year. “I got a call from the donor’s representative and he basically said, ‘Have I got a surprise for you,’” Muss said. “We’re very excited about it. We’re hoping to be under construction within the next 30 days.” The donor has declined to be publicly identified. Founded in 1992 by Hilleary Bogley of Middleburg, the nonprofit has been occupying space since 1994 at the east end of Marshall behind the Fauquier County trash and recycling center. The lease on that property, just off Va. 55, runs out this summer. A number of animals in that shelter have already been moved to temporary quarters at the new site, Muss said. A stable and an equipment shed have already been completed, along with other work on the 23 acres previously donated to MHF by Marshall residents Lisa and Zohar BenDov, also off Va. 55 at the other end of the town. Muss said the board wants to complete the last phase of the new

facility only after it had raised the necessary funds. The $1 million donation “put us over the top and will allow us to do that.” Middleburg Humane is an independent organization that relies totally on private funds raised through donations and proceeds from a number of events scheduled throughout the year. It accepts animals from about a 75-mile area that includes Fauquier, Loudoun and Prince William counties and even into West Virginia. The new Marshall facility will include an 8,000-square-foot main shelter with 24 dog runs and five major turnout fields over 15 acres for horses and other large animals. There will be a spay/neuter clinic as well as office space and living quarters on the property for caretakers on duty or on-call around the clock. “We take abused or neglected animals seized by public entities or voluntarily surrendered by their owners,” Muss said. “We spend a lot of money on medicine, surgery and rehabbing. We don’t take strays and we do not euthanize unless it is a vicious animal or it is suffering beyond redemption. And we keep them until they’re fully recovered and can be placed.” According to its website, on average MHF has been caring for about 60 animals at its current location, including a large number of cats and dogs. That number likely will increase at the new facility. The annual budget for 2018 is $962,000, not including construction costs. “We also provide care for horses and various other livestock,” reads the site. “Most of these animals have

come to us from cruelty or neglectful situations; therefore, they require

intensive daily behavioral and medical care.”

WILL YOU HAVE THE FINAL SAY? There is no question that a discussion will take place during which all the details of your funeral and body disposition will be considered and decided upon. The only question is: Will you be taking part in the conversation? It certainly seems fitting that you do, when you consider that no one has a better understanding of your wishes and beliefs than you do. You also have a responsibility to take such personal matters into your own hands. Otherwise, those who love you most will be forced to make the decisions for you at a time when they are likely to have their thinking clouded by high emotion. Funeral prearrangement enables you to take a clear-headed approach to funeral planning. At the time of an actual funeral, most decisions need to be made within a few hours. By preplanning the service options, you can take your time and make the decisions in an unhurried and thoughtful way. The funeral home is an important part of any community. To learn more about our services, please call MOSER FUNERAL HOME at (540) 347-3431. Please stop by our tastefully appointed facility at 233 Broadview Ave., Warrenton, and be sure to ask about our BRIGHT VIEW CEMETERY, located just outside of Warrenton. Northern Virginia Community College does not sponsor or endorse this event. If you need any accomodations for a disability, please call 703-323-3805

‘A heart as big as the whole outdoors’ Candlelight vigil held to remember 19-year-old killed in Friday crash

Before darkness fell, friends of Steven Kendall signed a memory book and T-shirt for Kendall’s family. Friends and family gathered at Liberty High School’s baseball field Sunday night to remember Kendall in a candlelight vigil. The 19-year-old member of Class of 2017 played third base on the Eagles baseball team. Right, there were hugs, tears and remembrances of the 2017 Liberty High School graduate who was killed in a crash in Catlett Friday night. By Leland Schwartz Times Staff Writer

Dozens of Steven Michael Kendall’s friends, family members and classmates gathered at home plate on Liberty High School’s baseball field Sunday night to hold a vigil for the 19-year-old who died in a car crash Friday in Catlett. Amid tears and prayers, they lit candles and signed a memory book and a T-shirt for the former Eagles third baseman. He leaves behind two sisters and his mother. Kendall was a member of Liberty High School’s Class of 2017. “He was a good guy. He was kind-hearted,” said one friend who attended. “That’s all I can say.” Kendall’s grandfather, Mike Gonzales, fighting back tears, said Ste-

ven “had a heart as big as the whole outdoors.” “He was an old soul,” Gonzales said. “I think he came out of the shoot as a grown man.” Kendall, of Bealeton, died at the scene of the crash Friday night at the intersection of Burwell Road and Dumfries Road, according to the Virginia State Police. Kendall was thrown from the back seat of the 2006 Ford Focus that he and two other friends were riding in. The car failed to stop at the stop sign and was struck by a 2010 Toyota Sequoia SUV, the state police said. Several of his friends at the vigil said the other passengers were not seriously injured.

Three killed on area roads since July 1


WARRENTON Warrenton Village Center 141 West Lee Highway

Staff Reports Traffic crashes on Fauquier and Prince William county roads in the first seven days of July have left three people dead. Dylan Christopher Davis, 31, of Nokesville, was killed early Saturday morning in the latest of three fatal accidents this past week. Davis’ pickup truck collided head on with a with a box truck at the intersection of Va. 28 and Fauquier Drive at about 6:11 a.m., according to Prince William police. Davis was driving a 2002 Ford Ranger, while a 48-year-old Fredericksburg man was driving the box truck, a 2013 Ford. The Fredericksburg man was transported via ambulance to an area hospital with minor injuries, the press release said. The exact cause of the crash is still under investigation. That crash came just eight hours after a Friday night wreck that killed Steven Michael Kendall, a 19-yearold from Bealeton, who graduated from Liberty High School in 2017. Kendall was ejected from the backseat of a 2006 Ford Focus that was traveling north on Burwell Road and failed to stop at a stop sign at Dumfries Road, also known as Va. 605. The Focus collided with a 2010 Toyota Sequoia SUV traveling on Dumfries Road, according to the Sgt. Les Tyler, of the Virginia State Police, which is investigating the crash. The crash was reported to police at 10:09 p.m. Friday, July 6, Tyler said, and remains under investigation. Two other people riding in the Focus were transported to the Fauquier hospital emergency room after the crash, according to Sgt. James Hartman of the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office, which assisted at the scene. Kendall’s friends and relatives gathered at the Liberty High School baseball field for a candlelight vigil held in his remembrance Sunday night. Kendall played third base for the Liberty Eagles. On Sunday, July 1, a Manassas woman was killed in a one-car crash on Va. 28 outside Calverton, also according to the state police. Amy Louise Hough, 57, was driving north on Va. 28, about 50 feet north of State Route 643, when she apparently lost control of her 2006 Nissan Armada and ran off the road. Hough’s SUV struck what police called a “dry-bulk trailer” parked on the side of the road, Tyler said. The wreck was reported to police by a Fauquier County Sheriff’s deputy at about 2:45 a.m. Sunday, July 1. Hough died at the scene as a result of her injuries. She was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, Tyler said.

A nation half-full or half-empty? A July 4 assessment Last Wednesday was Independence Day, the 242nd birthday of what George Washington called “The Great Experiment.” Many events have threatened the country through the years, from the flawed Articles of Confederation to the Civil War, the Great Depression, communism, fascism, the battle for civil rights and the backlash against the Vietnam War, just to name a few. Most generations believe the times in which they live in are the worst ever, that things have “never been this bad before.” And today is no different. The election of President Donald Trump has polarized an already OUR VIEW divided nation. Whether we believe that to be true or not, it begs the question: How do you feel about our nation? The Times took to Facebook to find out. The responses we received included the following: Tracey Pearson: In the people there is always hope.


Lynn Mullins James: I’m fortunate to live free in the USA!!

Demolition of the old Sowers Building on Main Street, Warrenton, began in the early 1970s, in preparation of the expansion of the Peoples National Bank. Everything was proceeding normally until the front of the building collapsed onto the street and sidewalk. Fortunately, there were no injuries.

David Crummett: I love this country, always have always will. However, we as a country are at a crossroads for who are, were and will become. Our fate isn’t written but we need to figure out how we can all live together as one nation. Josh Stevic: Freedom to live. Freedom to die. Freedom to serve. Freedom to speak. Freedom to print. Freedom to protect. Freedom to maintain. Freedom to vote. This is why I love the USA. I love our veterans. I love our president. I love that we can be great, will be great, should be great. Thank to those who serve, have served, and thank you to the men and women who gave their life for our freedom, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Patricia Mullins: I love this country but am ashamed of what this president and administration is doing to our democracy and our standing in the world. Our deficit is spiraling, our infrastructure is crumbling, Congress is not doing its job to put country first and to protect the Constitution and the citizens; racism and bigotry still exist and are being disguised as patriotism. I am not feeling pride or proud of the nation we are becoming, and I grieve for it. The results were varied, but there was a thread connecting many of them. Some may agree with the president, some not. Some may take issue with an administration’s policies or how it comports itself on the world stage. But our collective love of the country — our admiration for the ideals laid out by our forefathers so many years ago in Philadelphia — are greater than any one man, or administration. That is heartening. The founding fathers were dubious about the future of the nation. John Adams, in particular, noted the history of failure of republics. But we still believe, fragile as this great experiment might be, that our nation offers the best hope of a government of, by and for the people. We know in whose hands its future rests and are best reminded of it in the words of Benjamin Franklin, who at the close of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, when asked what they had wrought, replied, “A Republic, if you can keep it.”

75 Years Ago July 15, 1943 The five sons of Mr. and Mrs. William H. Rector of Warrenton are serving their country in the U.S. Army. Walter is at Langley Field, Paul is overseas with the air force, Forrest is stationed with an anti-aircraft unit at Seattle, Joseph is at the A. P. Hill Military Reservation near Fredericksburg, and Davis is at Truax Field, Madison, Wisc. R. Mason Carter, for 16 years assistant cashier for Marshall National Bank and Trust Co., has been appointed acting treasurer of Fauquier County by the Circuit Court, Judge J. H. R. Alexander presiding. Mr. Carter will serve in place of Lt. (j.g) J.E. Cox, who will leave this month to begin active duty in the Navy. 50 Years Ago July 18, 1968 Warrenton is expected to become a center of medical attention next year with the opening of a revolutionary medical clinic and nursing home featuring extensive automation and the use of computers. Dr. James Pray Baker, Warrenton surgeon and president of the Albert Lundy Baker Foundation, which is sponsoring the clinic, disclosed his plans last week. Photographer’s Mate Airman Thomas W. S. Davis Jr., USN, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas W. S. Davis of Baldwin’s

Ridge Road, Warrenton, was graduated from basic Photographer’s Mate School at the Naval Air Station at Pensacola, Fla. The Peoples National Bank of Warrenton has bought the Sowers Building on Main Street to provide for the bank’s possible expansion, says President P.N. Brittle. The building is leased at present by Willard Kirby, who operates the Down Town Store there. The descendants of Joseph and Harriet Royston of Thumb Run, Marshall plan to hold a family reunion Aug. 4 in the Thumb Run Church grove near Marshall. Each family will bring a picnic basket. 25 Years Ago July 14, 1993 Warrenton is going to take a shot at approximately $14 million in grant money available from the state that will allow the region to transform an abandoned strip of railway into a linear park, the Town Council decided Tuesday night. At an informational meeting July 6 and public hearing July 8, Michael Moon, director of public works for the town, and Larry Miller, director of parks and recreation for the county, fielded questions and concerns from citizens. State Delegate Jerry Wood (D-31st) wants to take the place of retiring Al Smith (D-29th) on the important Appropriations Committee, Wood said last week. — Compiled by John T. Toler

Newspaper coverage brought back memories Editorial ‘demonizes the president’s supporters’ Betsy Parker’s excellent coverage of the 99th annual Warrenton Pony Show brought back many wonderful memories and impelled me to attend the show. To say that my socks were knocked off by the event would be an understatement. Today’s four-day show with trailers and horse vans and auxiliary stabling covering every available square inch of the Warrenton Horse Show grounds, attests to the show’s continuing popularity among exhibitors. Gone, however, from all horse shows today, are the crowds that used to fill the grand stands. My knowledge of the early days of the Pony Show comes from hearsay. The Keith girls (the mothers of Barry Hamilton and Mel Bearnes) and Mildred Gaines founded the Warrenton Pony Show that was to be for and run by children, 18 years and under. The first couple of years, the show was held at Neptune Lodge on Culpepper Street. Mildred Gaines didn’t quit the Pony Show when she became 19 but stayed on as an unofficial manager. At my first meeting when I was 10, the older members of the committee told Mildred she would have to stop running the Pony Show. It was an awful moment. Mildred was in tears, but the older children on the committee stood their ground. Mildred left Warrenton and went to the Madeira School where she established a very successful riding program which brought her many devoted friends and a happy life. She never returned to Warrenton, I left that meeting, which had been

a shattering experience, with a list of people I had to call to ask for money to buy silver cups. This started a lifelong career of trying to induce people to do things they would rather not do. When my pals and I were 15, and took over running the Pony Show, the retiring directors started The Leny Manor Horse Show on Polly Buchanan’s family’s farm, next to Airlie. It was a lighthearted show that lasted until more serious things had to be attended to. It was under our administration that the Pony Show became a twoday show, I look back on the three years that my pals and I were in charge as among the best of my long life. Our parents’ only involvement was in occasionally providing food and lodging for our judges — of which we always had three. Just before World War II, one of our judges was Col. Skinny Wainwright who within a couple of years would become the famous Gen. Wainwright, the commander of the Allied army in the Philippines at the time of its surrender to the Japanese. In the attic of our house is a battered sliver cup with a barely legible “Warrenton Pony Show 1922” engraved on it. A recently unearthed letter from my grandfather described my 5-year-old brother winning that cup in a jumping class and his 6-yearold brother’s pony, Chubby, winning the Shetland pony championship. Everything in our family has been downhill ever since.

“I don’t really care, do U?” So said Melania Trump’s jacket when she was visiting the migrant children who have been brutally separated from their parents seeking asylum in the USA. Obviously, Donald Trump, Melania and their self-serving sycophants don’t care and don’t care who knows! Many of his followers, white evangelical Christians, never seem to have heard Jesus speak about harming His “little ones.” According to Matthew 8: 1-6, KJV, especially verse 6, if anyone “offends” one of His “little ones” it would be better to tie a millstone around their neck and jump into the sea. And these migrant children and their parents are His “little ones.” How can we, as an immigrant nation, turn our backs on the travails and suffering of these people and treat then as common criminals? If they were Caucasian, I doubt there would be such hideous behavior on the part of a nation which prides itself on civility and helping the less fortunate. And as for being drug traffickers, it would seem they are attempting to get away, with their families, from the dangers in their countries, partially caused by the incessant need for drugs from our more wealthy and fortunate American citizens, who can’t seem to get enough of

drugs of any kind and pay exorbitant prices for these drugs from any source. Separating these youngsters and infants from their mothers and fathers is inhumane and, to our minds, torture resulting in trauma from which these people will probably never recover. Hispanics traditionally put family first and take care of their own. Separating families and letting our government take their babies and put them in cages with inadequate care equates to inhumane torture. Canada, Germany, France, etc. (our allies) are taking refugees seeking asylum In unparalleled numbers and we have forcibly separated over 2,000 children of various ages. The international community is rightfully horrified by the treatment of these human beings by the American government. The harm has been done and will most likely be unable to be rectified. To quote Nelson Mandela, “As long as poverty, injustice and gross inequality persist in our world, none of us can truly rest.” We can’t really rest, can U?

I have subscribed to The Fauquier Times for about two years after being totally disgusted by the main Washington-area newspaper in its never ending and unfair liberal bias. I have basically been happy with the not so extreme political slant of the Fauquier Times, although I feel the paper does slant slightly to the leftish ideology. Needless to say, I was shocked to read the editorial “In Defense of the Truth” in the June 27 edition of the paper accusing “our president to make statements completely at odds with the facts.” The editorial demonizes the president’s supporters who have the audacity to “declare the media biased,” and goes on to decry Trump supporters who “deem fact checkers biased when the

“fact-checkers prove certain statements incorrect.” Also, if “science doesn’t back up the premise, the supporters “question the validity of science” and “if courts rule against it”(whatever it is) supporters “blame partisan judges.” This is so biased, incorrect, arrogant and insulting to the president and his supporters. I am puzzled why these “truthful facts” weren’t enumerated instead of accusing half the country who support President Trump of being “far less receptive to ideas that challenge their core beliefs.” Does this scenario not apply to the other political side Fauquier Times?

America has shown it has great potential to become a leading fascist state. But we’re not there yet. Here’s what we’ll need to succeed in building it. For starters, we need a citizenry that knows little about matters of governance and public policy. We have that criterion well in hand. It’s a well-established fact that Americans know far more about Kim Kardashian or the Philadelphia Eagles than the real effects of, say, the supposed “middle class tax cut.” Truly, ignorance is bliss and a sure pathway to manipulation by demagogues. Truth is the backbone of democracy. For fascism to break that backbone, lies must replace the truth. The “Big Lie” tactic was perfected by the National Socialists in the 1930s. It can be used once again to misdirect a citizenry incapable of critical thinking to accept made up “facts” as though they were reality. Dressing up lies as “alternative facts” can help make them more palatable to a squeamish and uncritical populace. A corollary is to discredit sources of truth whenever possible. The journalistic media, for starters, must be branded as purveyors of “fake news.” The goal is to eliminate truth from political discourse; this enables an alternate reality to be substituted in the minds of the impressionable. In addition, the voices of the intelligent in academia and other spheres must be silenced by any means necessary. Fascist tyrants thrive when they have a scapegoat target on whom to cast aspersions and place blame. For the Nazis it was the Jews, among others. America has chosen Hispanic immigrants who, though fleeing for safety and better lives in the U.S., have been branded as “murderers and rapists.” This easily justifies even the most draconian measures in the minds

of impressionable citizens. Tyrants and would-be dictators often engage in foreign wars to divert attention from domestic issues by calling on patriotic fervor. Though war remains a part of our experience in the Middle East, no large war presently fills that role. For fascism to win out in America, we clearly need a major war for our beefed-up military to fight. Since we are now evidently friends with North Korea, perhaps we can find some pretense to attack Iran. Our Constitution provides numerous checks and balances that inhibit the formation of a fascist state. But these checks and balances require congressional and judicial leaders to put honest statecraft above the petty desire to hold the reins of power. So far, America’s leaders, at least those in the controlling congressional party, have succeeded in throttling the constitutional checks on an executive branch enamored with fascism. This silent collusion of Congress is a wonderfully powerful stimulant to fascistic tendencies. All of this has been seen before, in other times and other locales. But history repeats itself. Americans’ ignorance of history matches their ignorance of governing principles and gives a major boost to fascism. As George Santayana famously stated, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Is fascism now an inevitable part of America’s future? Are we in denial that it could happen here? Is it, in moments of careful reflection, what we really want for ourselves and our posterity? Or shall we allow our glorious American experiment to silently slip away?

JULIAN SAMS Powerful Julian Sams picked two of the toughest sports imaginable and shined as a state runnerup wrestler and all-state lineman who’ll play at Kent State.

MAKAELA KESTNER Makaela Kestner departed for the University of South Florida as Fauquier County’s all-time basketball scoring leader with 1,545 points.


Big guy was big asset in football, wrestling By Jeff Malmgren Times Staff Writer

No one scored more points than Makaela By Fred Hodge

Special to the Times

Makaela Kestner packed deliberately for her new Florida lifestyle, bringing a wardrobe that consists of shorts, T-shirts and bathing suits. “That’s all I’m wearing,” she says. But don’t think the Liberty High girls basketball star is relaxing after her legendary four-year run ended with graduation in late May. Kestner has been at the University of South Florida in Tampa since June 18, attending two classes, working on conditioning and improving individual basketball skills as she prepares for her freshman year on the Bulls’ nationally-ranked program. Kestner, the 2018 Fauquier Times Liberty Girls Athlete of the Year, departed as Fauquier County’s all-time leading scorer, female or male, with 1,545 points, and also earned three letters in softball. Seventy-five college basketball

programs contacted the versatile 5-foot-11 guard with speed, court vision and shooting ability, making her perhaps the highest recruited athlete in school history. Kestner realizes those accolades don’t matter now. “I’m going to have to work my butt off,” she stressed.

From Tar Heel to Bull

Kestner’s much-chronicled career took an eye-opening turn her senior year when she de-committed from the University of North Carolina. Kestner selected UNC, her childhood favorite, way back in September, 2016, following a high profile home visit from famous Tar Heels coach Sylvia Hatchell before the start of her junior campaign. But, as the November, 2017 signing period approached, the Liberty administration was quiet about plans for a grand ceremony befitting her status as an elite recruit.

See KESTNER, page 16

helped make him the Fauquier Times 2018 Liberty Boys Athlete of the Year. “While being a great technical football player he also plays with great aggression,” Liberty football coach Sean Finnerty said. “That makes him a very dangerous football player.”

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, according to the adage. So does a 6-foot-3, 280-pound football player wearing any other jersey number look more intimidating? Julian Sams pondered that question enough to switch as a Liberty se- See SAMS, page 16 nior from No. 74 to 55, with former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs as a menacing model. “It’s just an intimidating number,” the 18-year-old Sams said. “I tried to intimidate [opponents]. The way that they looked at me and the way they tried to block me, they looked scared.” So Sams dominated as an all-state offensive and defensive lineman for an Eagles team that finished as the Class 4 Region C runner-up with a 9-3 record. He also finished as a state runner-up heavyweight wrestler while helping Liberty earn its best state placement in history — third in Class 4. See Ad on Page 17 His size, skill and aggressive approach to both sports combined to make him intimidating, which also

The Sams File

Eagles wrestling coach Wes Hawkins viewed Sams similarly. “That kid’s a phenomenal athlete; top notch.” Hawkins said. “I loved how he threw kids around.” The highlight of Sams’ wrestling season came during the Class 4 state semifinals. He beat a tough opponent in Dinwiddie’s Brandon Harris by throwing the heavyweight to the mat for two points with only seven seconds remaining in the third period. That broke a tie and gave Sams a 3-1 win that gave him a rare bid to the state finals for a Liberty wrestler. Throws were some of Sams’ greatest assets on the mat, but that move also cost him most of his senior wrestling season. During the Eagles’ fourth meet of the winter, Sams tried to throw a shorter opponent without establishing enough leverage and he felt a “pop” in his knee. He won two more matches in the meet, but then had to sit out nearly two months due to a hamstring injury. Sams returned to Liberty’s lineup for the Northwestern District championship meet and finished as the 285-pound runner-up despite not being “in good wrestling shape.” He followed that with runner-up finishes at the Class 4 Region C and state meets. So Sams advanced to the finals of all three postseason competitions, but he lost to Millbrook’s Tavon Blowe each time. Blowe won the state title over Sams. “I think if he wouldn’t have been hurt … those matches would have been a whole lot different,” Hawkins said. “I’m happy with what he did. That being said, I wanted him to be a state champion.” Sams also came close to that accomplishment as a junior by placing third at state after failing to win a state match as a sophomore and failing to qualify as a freshman. “Freshman and sophomore year I really didn’t care what happened,” he said. “Coach Wes told me I needed to want it or else I wasn’t going to be successful. That really changed my mindset — being tough and pushing through and not giving up.” Sams also became only the third Liberty wrestler since 2001 to advance to a state final. He did so despite beginning the sport as only a rising freshman. “I did not want to wrestle at all,” he said. “But Coach Wes and [his coaching

staff], they really helped me stick with it,” Sams said.

Scholarship football recruit

Julian Sams began playing football as a 6-year-old running back. Then he grew too big for those cleats and switched to shoes used to blaze a trail for other running backs in middle school. That transformation into a lineman eventually set Sams up with a college football scholarship from Kent State University. “I like playing line,” he said. “Just knowing that I’m contributing to helping my people score, get touchdowns and put up numbers.” During his senior season, the Eagles outscored opponents 403-162, including a playoff victory over Kettle Run, 28-14, that avenged a regular season loss to the Cougars. Liberty hadn’t won a playoff game since Sams’ freshman season, when the Eagles made a run to the state semifinals. But he did not actually play during that 2014 season, so winning a playoff game this winter had extra significance. “It meant a lot just knowing that I was contributing to the success that we were having,” Sams said. “It felt good knowing that I was a pretty dominant player out there.” Liberty also defeated Fauquier, 5713, to claim the Bird Bowl trophy for the 15th consecutive season. The Eagles’ postseason run then ended with a 33-21 loss to Sherando after they beat the Warriors in during the regular season, 31-28. He also felt proud to make the allstate first team as both an offensive guard/tackle and defensive tackle. “Julian was a huge asset,” Sean Finnerty said. “To make all-state on both sides of the ball is incredible. “He is one of the most coachable kids I have ever been around,” the football coach said. “He is able to fix his mistakes the first time and they never come back. This is a talent that not many people have.”

The period closed with no signing, leading to questions whether the UNC-Kestner relationship had soured. It had. In a Twitter post, Kestner declared she was reopening her recruitment as James Madison, Florida, Clemson, Florida, Villanova, Georgetown, Radford were named as interested programs. After a phone call from USF coach Jose Fernandez, she scheduled an early January visit to the American Athletic Conference school, which has superpower Connecticut as a member. She saw UConn play, liked the Bulls’ up-tempo style and committed. Later, Kestner admitted the UNC situation had been painful, but she’s happy with the way things turned out. “I am,” she answered strongly. “It feels good down here. I feel like I fit in. I think this is where I was supposed to be. As I [have] said, everything happens for a reason, God has a plan. It all has turned out as expected.”

Points, and more points

Kestner and her teammates went 17-6 her senior year, with three defeats to Class 4 state champion Millbrook (28-0), including Millbrook’s closest win of the year, a 47-43 battle at Bealeton in mid-February. Liberty finished second in the Northwestern District and made the region semifinals, falling to Loudoun Valley. “I thought we had a good run. I had a lot of fun,” said Kestner, who said the team goal was to make the Class 4 tournament. “But I myself feel I could have done better.” Kestner became Liberty’s all-time leading scorer Feb. 6 in the first quarter of a win at Kettle Run. She finished the night with 1,479 total points to surpass the former record of 1,467 held by 2012 graduate Liz Wood. The Eagle soon passed Tera Davis, a 1999 Fauquier graduate, who held the county’s previous all-time scoring mark at 1,492. Kestner then easily became the first local player to reach the 1,500 point tier, finishing with 1,545. She gained all-district and all-region honors for the fourth straight season. She was voted second-team all-state as a junior.

Darned good in softball, too

Kestner also is a decorated softball player who started playing alongside of former Fauquier star Leann Brown at age eight. “I was a young ’un,” Kestner said. Several colleges extended offers to play both sports. She had started as a freshman in softball. The next spring, coaches of the former Conference 22 voted her the league’s most valuable player. The Eagle was an ace hurler and also saw time in the outfield and at first base. Kestner opted to forego softball as a junior to concentrate on basketball, but felt pangs of disappointment during the spring and returned for a senior crusade. Little rust showed as the Northwestern District coaches selected her to the first team at both pitcher

and outfield. “I really did miss it. I had fun with it again,” she said.

Workout, workout, class

While many of her former schoolmates are still asleep, Kestner finds herself at the South Florida women’s basketball facility by 7 a.m. most mornings. Conditioning sessions are followed by weightlifting and individual skill work. Then it’s off to her two classes involving composition and literature analysis. She next attends mandatory study hall sessions in the afternoon. “I enjoy it. I like having people to push me,” Kestner said. “I hope to get stronger from lifting weights and learning new [skills].” Her schedule provides free time later in the day and evening. Kestner shares a four-bedroom, two-bath apartment with three teammates. Although she’s yet to explore the Tampa-St. Petersburg area, she’s liking the hot weather and adjusting well, and hasn’t gotten homesick yet. “Nope, I’m good,” she said. “I really like the people.” Ryan Washington, who coached Kestner in both sports, called Kestner a generational talent. She told her to work hard at USF and enjoy life in the NCAA fast lane. “You’ll travel to some great places, get some cool athletic gear, meet some of the coolest people you’ll ever know. Play UConn often. Make some of the most memorable memories, but most of all you’re doing something that you love. “All I have to say is ‘Take flight, kid,’” Washington said.

Excerpts from Fauquier County’s Doug Harpole as he hikes the Appalachian Trail.

A toxic orange snack

One day I was with three hikers and we were looking at a red eft, a type of salamander that is the nonbreeding, juvenile form of the red spotted newt. I explained their complex life cycle in great detail and answered questions. I went on to tell them that they have toxins in their skin that make them noxious and distasteful to would-be predators. Their bright orange coloration is a warning that they should not be eaten. By the way, this is true. After all this, I had pretty well established that I knew what I was talking about, so I decided to see how far I could go. I told them that while the toxins are bad for small animals, they wouldn’t hurt humans. In fact, if you rubbed the little guy on your lips, your lips would go numb. They looked at me. It didn’t take long before one of them gave it a try. He said he didn’t feel anything. I suggested that he wet his lips to help increase the effect. He said he thought he could feel a little tingling. Now number two hiker wanted to try. He wet his lips, applied the salamander and passed it to number three. And so on. Now we had one slight tingling and two no-effects. They questioned my assertion, and I said it didn’t work for all efts evidently. Maybe if they got it really wet it would work. Perhaps if they licked the salamander it might enhance the effect. And so they did. The poor moist little critter

Big City Selection & Savings

Doug Harpole saw the New York City skyline from the Appalachian Trail last week. The Amissville man is closing in on the final third of his 2,180-mile hike. At left is a salamander like the one he suckered fellow hikers into tasting. probably wondered what hit him. A couple of enthusiastic maybe responses later, they were still questioning me. One of them finally asked me if it worked when I did it. This was the moment I was waiting for. I responded, “Are you crazy? I’m not stupid enough to lick a salamander!” Fortunately, I wasn’t wearing my backpack and was able to run away.

Me and Cannonball

I have been hiking by myself for 1,100 miles. Coming out of Harper’s Ferry I ran into a young man that I first met at about the 800-mile mark. We’ve crossed paths several times since then but he has been hiking with his twenty-something group of five since Georgia and I avoid groups. He’s 24 and from Indiana. Name: Cannonball. We kind of fell in together because we hike the same speed (2.5-3 mph) and daily distances (2025 miles). We both get up at sunrise and both like our quiet time when hiking. He’s kind of like a big puppy. He runs really hard and then crashes. He can fall asleep anywhere, anytime.

We have a pretty set routine. I wake up at 5 a.m. and start breaking camp. If Cannonball does not hear me, I shake his tent. I take off hiking first and he always catches me a few hours later and we stop for first lunch. We’ll hike together or separately for another 8-10 miles and then stop for second lunch. He then heads out first (he hikes faster) and we hike towards our final destination alone again, stopping between 4-6 p.m.

Ranking the northern states

Pennsylvania: Rocky, tedious, brutal. My feet still hurt. New Jersey: Slightly less rocky, surprising, I met some fantastic people. New York: Not particularly memorable, water sources were terrible/dry/unusable, thank you to so many Trail Angels who gave us water. Connecticut: Easy hiking, very pretty, welcome break, we were lucky to be here during the peak of the heat wave, found swimming hole at just the right time (photo). Massachusetts: The Berkshires are beautiful, easy hiking terrain.

WILL COLEMAN The margin — .1 penalty point — made Coleman wince. “That was close,” said Coleman, who trains out of his family’s Tivoli Farm in Orange County. “I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t paying attention to the scoreboard.” Coleman rode the course early on Soupcon du Brunet, jumping clear but incurring time faults. He went late with Off The Record, so he got to watch how others were handling Mike Etherington-Smith’s challenging 33-effort track. Three water combinations, a maximum height hanging trakehner jump and a beefy corner-to-corner brush in-and-out were testing accuracy and boldness in equal measure, he said. And he watched as horse after horse glanced off the tricky Beverly Corners combination in the main arena, each incurring 20 penalties for the runout. He formulated a plan based on that viewpoint. “It was disorienting for the horse to go from the grass track to the (nearly-white sand in the) arena,” Coleman explained. He lined up super straight to the two corners, giving Off The Record a long look at the massive question, “so he’d understand where he was going,” Coleman added. The strategy worked: Off The Record jumped flawlessly, finishing in 6:30, three seconds better than the optimum time for the winning final, 35.1. “He’s genuinely a horse that runs better when he goes out and has a crack at it,” Coleman said. “When I saw that maybe there was an opening (to win the event,) it was a bit easier to just go let him run. He likes to go like that.” England’s Georgie Spence was second with her Halltown Harley, the only pair to finish on their dressage score, 35.2. Third was Canada’s Jessica Phoenix and Pavarotti in 36.7. Coleman took fourth with Soupcon du Brunet with 37.

PHOTO BY BETSY BURKE PARKER Off The Record jumped flawlessly for Will Coleman, helping the Gordonsville rider win the Great Meadow International in The Plains. Great Britain won the Nations Cup. 148.7 points, with Lisa Marie Fergusson, Jessica Phoenix, Waylon Roberts and Shelby Brost. After winning the only North American eventing Nations Cup the past two years, the U.S. ended up third. Phillip Dutton and Sydney Elliott delivered fast, clear rounds for the team, but Caroline Martin and Buck Davidson had stops at the Beverly Corner. British chef d’equipe Philip Surl was thrilled to bring home the win in his third try at Great Meadow. “Today was a roller-coaster from start to finish,” Surl said. “It just shows that in a team competition, anything can happen until the very end. Cross-country was critical.” The importance of cross-country scores wasn’t lost on former Olympian and Olympic coach Jim Wofford. Recent changes in scoring lessen the influence of dressage, said the Upperville horseman, something that returns the sport to its military roots. “At the Kentucky (Three-Day Event in April), the buzz was that scoring changes increased the influence of show jumping,” said Wofford. “Well, not really. Look at these scores — cross-country was definitive at Great Meadow. But the main reason — it’s not provable, but it’s true — is that cross-country ran last. “If show jumping runs last like at Kentucky, people say ‘oh, show jumping scores have the biggest influence.’ It’s not the phase, it’s when it runs.” Complete interactive results are at coursewalkapp. com/livescores/2018_07_07_GreatMeadow/#.W0M5IdJKi

Family-owned firm keeps rockin’ along at bone-rattling pace By John Hagarty

Contributing Writer

The company specializes in the demolition of rock and concrete. And lest you think it might be hard to conjure a viable business that simply breaks rock, think again. Curtis Hambrick toiled in the construction industry for years before the idea struck him that the demand for rock and concrete removal held economic potential. And why? Northern Virginia and the Piedmont region is a motherlode of subsurface rock. Combine that fact with the explosive growth in home and commercial construction, highways and pipeline trenches, and the recipe for success was as clear as a mountain brook. Nonetheless, it takes courage to


Curtis Hambrick is at the helm of Hambrick Hammers in Marshall.

create, fund and execute a new small business. The average life span of a small business is eight and a half years; 555,000 close their doors annually. This firm, however, is generating more than $1 million in business a year. Michele Hambrick shared her thoughts on how that success was achieved and her pride in what she and her husband have built. Curtis Hambrick, 56, was not available for comment because he leaves the house at 4 a.m. five to six days a week and returns around 7 p.m. “We run the business out of our home. But Curtis leased a shop on a nearby farm 10 years ago for the maintenance and repair of the machines,” she said. Repair work is so significant the company has its own mechanic. The arsenal of heavy-duty tractors, backhoes and trucks totals 14 pieces valued at several million dollars. “The machines range in cost from $150,000 to more than $300,000 each,” said Hambrick. The workhorse and frontline agitator of peaceful rock is called a hoe-ram. Picture your one-man jack hammer plugging away at a piece of asphalt. Now, put that jack hammer on steroids and attach it to the arm of a large backhoe and you’ve got the picture of what is brought to bear on recalcitrant rock and concrete. And where is all this rock? Everywhere. But the company’s fortunes are centered on Northern Virginia

and especially Loudoun County, where work on data centers, pipeline trenches and commercial and home construction thrive. The company has six full-time workers who are all experts on the heavy-duty equipment. The Hambricks have known three of the men for decades. Suffice it say loyalty is a reigning character trait among the small and highly experienced workforce. While large rock removal jobs are the company’s forte, no job is too small to get their attention. “We have broken rock for individual homeowners putting in a swimming pool and for farmers seeking removal of rock and boulders in their pastures. The Orange County Hounds even used us to remove rock from their fields,” Hambrick said. A particularly unique application was RdV Vineyards in Delaplane, which needed some rock removed from their property. We’ll drink to the success of that job. The firm is also licensed in West Virginia where Richmond American homebuilders is building subdivisions. Home construction firms may think site preparation will be a breeze until they stumble upon the hard stuff. Lucky for them Hambrick Hammers is on their speed dial. While the Hambricks were building their business, they were also raising two sons, Kurt and Carson. Kurt, 27, is See HAMBRICK, page 23

Taj Palace: Warrenton’s only place for Indian fare By James Ivancic Times Staff Writer

The Taj Palace holds the distinction of being the only Indian restaurant in Fauquier County. It isn’t brand new – it’s been in Warrenton for more than a year – but a grand opening this spring served to reintroduce it to the community. “We wanted to understand the locale well and appreciate its palate” before going “big,” explained Arun Bhattarai, one of three co-owners. Taj Palace has expanded into catering. It’s also offering free delivery service within a 5-mile area.

Prakash Kandel, manager of Taj Palace, shows the day’s selections at the buffet bar of the Taj Palace.

Bhattarai runs the restaurant with Nepal Thapa and Resham Subedi. Subedi works as a chef, turning out the restaurant’s selection of mainstream dishes from northern India and Himalaya. Prakash Kandel is the restaurant’s manager. Kandel worked in hospitality management in India and then capitalized on his interest in and knowledge of food to get into restaurant work. The Taj Palace employs a staff of eight, including two chefs. The restaurant’s interior has tall ceilings, brightly colored walls and arches. Diners can choose from a range of dishes available on the buffet table (open during lunch hours) or order from the menu. The 25-percent off buffet selections change every day, but typical options Monday through Friday are chicken curry, butter chicken, two types of rice, lentils, two vegetables, salads, naan breads, papadum, chicken chilly, Tandoori chicken and gulab jamun (a sweet dessert). Goat or lamb curry are added on the weekend, and fish curry sometimes appears. Appetizers include vegetable samosa, pickled peanuts (mildly spiced, marinated peanuts) and a Taj trio platter of samosa, veggie roll and aloo tikka served with chutney. A Nepalese appetizer – Kathmandu chili chicken – is also served. Soups and salads are options.

PHOTOS BY JAMES IVANCIC Dining outside during good weather is an option at Taj Palace. Curry specialties include Taj butter chicken, “very spicy” chicken vindaloo, lamb rogan josh, Annapurna goat curry and fish tikka masala. Curry

dishes are served mild, medium or hot, so let the server know your preference. See INDIAN FARE, page 23

An education against e-cigarettes Local teens work to combat tobacco use and ‘juuling’ among peers By Gabriela Tobar Contributing Writer

With encouragement from Y-Street, an initiative of the Virginia Foundation for Healthy Youth, Fauquier County schools adopted a stricter tobacco-free policy earlier this year that forbids smoking and tobacco use on all school property and events. Fauquier High School students joined the effort to discourage the use of both traditional tobacco products and newer e-cigarette devices, the latter of which have become increasingly popular among teens nationwide. In 2017, e-cigarettes were found to be the most commonly used tobacco product among U.S. middle school and high school students for the fourth year in a row, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Nicole Bartholomaus, a rising Fauquier High School senior who advocated for the stricter policy, said the new rule and an educational push about e-cigarettes seems to be making a difference. “Although [the use of e-cigarettes] is a statewide problem in schools, I have also seen it in the county—especially in the beginning of the year before the policy was changed,” Bartholomaus said. “Once [Fauquier County schools] had their policy changed, and we were able to make more announcements about the program, I did see a decrease in the amount of these devices being used on school property or school functions.” Y-Street’s “24/7 campaign” helps schools in Virginia understand, adopt, implement and enforce a zero-tolerance policies on tobacco and e-cigarette use. Student members, called


E-cigarettes resemble a flashdrive and are easy to conceal, but they can deliver the same nicotine hit as a pack of cigarettes. “Y-sters,” publicize the campaign on their school campuses with the help of health-class presentations and educational posters and literature about the dangers of smoking and e-cigarettes. “It’s been pretty effective since

students are more scared to use the devices from knowing the negative effects nicotine has on their bodies,” Bartholomaus said. The group’s efforts include raising awareness about “Juul” e-cigarettes, the use of which is commonly known as “juuling.” The brand has become particularly popular among teens mostly because of its miniature size. Juul pipes are small enough to hide in a closed fist, which make them easy to conceal both at home and at school.

What is ‘juuling’?


Members of the Fauquier County School Board, including, from left, Duke Bland, Don Mason, Chair Donna Grove and Vice Chair Suzanne Sloane, pose with FHS students Kit Harmon, left, and Nicole Bartholomaus, right. The students are members of “Y Street,” a health-conscious volunteer group that spearheaded an expansion of the school division’s no-smoking policy.

Resembling a flash drive, Juuls can be charged through the USB port of a laptop computer. The e-cigarettes also produce less smoke than similar devices—such as vapes, e-hookahs or e-cigars—making them more discreet in public. As of March 2018, 47 states had passed legislation prohibiting the sale of e-cigarettes to minors, including Virginia. Still, the use of electronic smoking devices has been on a rise across the nation. Studies have shown youth are more likely to use e-cigs than adults in the United States. According to a report from the CDC,

more than 2 million high school and middle school students used e-cigarettes in 2016. Although the FDA has not approved them for such uses, Juuls are marketed as a smoking alternative for adults to substitute regular cigarettes and other smoked tobacco products. The Juul device ranges from $35 See E-CIGARETTES, page 27

This summer, 115 students will be participating. First-time campers attend the Level 1 Medical Camp, learning skills like typing blood in the lab, how to intubate a patient, how to suture, starting an IV, mixing medications in the pharmacy, and seeing how X-rays are performed. Students participate in a mock code in the Emergency Department, learn how to triage patients, take blood pressures and harvest a cornea from a human eye. Level 2 Medical Camp activities include all of the following on the first day: applying a cast to a partner’s arm (and cutting the cast off using the cast saw); placing internal sutures and closing skin incisions with staples and extricating a patient from a vehicle using a cervical collar and backboard. On the second day, students learn to do injections and

Juuling on the rise New diabetes research challenges medical status quo

to $50. The electronic devices convert liquid from cartridges or ‘Juul pods’ into a vapor that is inhaled. The $4 pods are made up of glycerol, propylene glycol, nicotine, benzoic acid and come in a variety of flavors, including mango, mint, cucumber and crème brulee. Each contains about as much nicotine as one pack of cigarettes or about 200 puffs. Juul’s website provides educational resources, regulation and public policy information to the public. The company says it supports legislation to prevent the use and purchase of its products by minors. They have pledged $30 million over the next three years to research, education and community engagement. Scientists are still conducting research about e-cigarettes’ long-term health effects. What they do know is that most e-cigs contain nicotine, which has been found to be highly addictive. Nicotine is not only toxic to developing fetuses but can harm adolescent brain development, which continues into the early to mid-20s. E-cig aerosol also contains potentially harmful substances that include heavy metals such as lead, nickel, tin and volatile organic compounds. These chemicals expose individuals to cancer-causing agents.

Sending a message

Y-Street provides visual infographics for students to be placed in cafeterias, gymnasiums, parking lots, athletic fields and hallways to remind students of the zero-tolerance policy. Some posters provide a QR code that students can scan to get cessation information. Along with talks in classrooms and announcements made throughout the day enforcing the policies, the Fauquier County’s student code of conduct includes the zero-tolerance policy. “The rise of these devices in students is why we provide updated policies—and that language is very clear—along with resources such as announcements and signages,” said Holley Tillman, who manages the “24/7” tobacco-free schools initiative for the Virginia Foundation for Healthy Youth. “We continue that partnership to make sure folks know these devices do contain nicotine and they are not allowed.”

Why are teens using e-cigarettes?

Reprinted from The Virginia Gazette Diabetes is reversible. That's the exciting conclusion of a study I'm leading at Indiana University Health. In the study, 262 patients with Type 2 diabetes recently completed one year of a clinical trial examining the impact of a low-carbohydrate diet, which limits foods such as grains and pasta while boosting consumption of healthy fats, such as like avocados and butter. The diet didn't restrict calories. Using smartphone technology, health coaches worked with participants while physicians monitored and adjusted medications. A control group of 87 patients with diabetes received the American Diabetes Association standard nutritional treatment. A full 94 percent of patients on the low-carb intervention have been able to reduce or eliminate their need for insulin. For six in 10 patients, average blood sugar levels fell so low that technically, they had reversed their diabetes. These findings are promising for treating one of America's deadliest, most expensive diseases. Diabetes is a public-health emergency, with 30 million Americans suffering from diabetes. The illness is the nation's seventh leading killer, with serious side effects including heart disease, kidney damage, limb amputation, and blindness. Last year, diabetes cost the coun-

SARAH HALLBERG try about $327 billion in medical bills and lost productivity. Despite this staggering cost, health experts have focused on managing the disease rather than reversing it. When patients consult the ADA website, they learn that "there is no cure for Type 2 diabetes, but it can be managed." "Management" usually involves costly medications. Medical expenditures for people with diabetes total about $13,700 per year — double the figure for people without the disease. Bariatric surgery, the procedure that helps people lose weight by stapling, binding or removing part of the stomach, has even become a "first line" treatment for obese individuals with diabetes. This was once seen as a last resort, as it costs about $26,000 and one in six patients experience complications. Yet in 2016, the ADA led 45 international diabetes organizations to begin recommending the surgery as standard treatment. That's misguided. Plenty of research — including our own — shows that dietary adjustments can curb diabetes. A 2017 study from University of California San Francisco found that 60 percent

of diabetic patients put on a very lowcarb diet were able to stop common medications for their condition in one year. A 2008 study found that 95 percent of patients on a low-carb diet either cut back on diabetes medications or stopped taking them entirely. With conventional treatment regimens, according to a study in Diabetes Care, only 0.1 percent of patients achieve complete remission. Nutrition-centric treatment was once the standard. In the 20th century, people with diabetes were told to avoid foods high in carbohydrates. That treatment fell from favor with the commercialization of insulin. Employing insulin, patients could again consume carbohydrates, and when the U.S. government launched its low-fat, high-carbohydrate advice via the dietary guidelines in 1980, those with diabetes fell in line with everyday Americans, eating bread and pasta with gusto. Critics worry that low-carb diets are too difficult. But in our study, 83 percent of patients stayed with it. With individualized support, changing a grocery list is far less daunting than a lifetime of dependency on costly medications. Reversing diabetes is possible—and should be our goal.

Vintage vehicles visit The Plains Grace Episcopal hosts third annual car and truck show


The third annual Grace Episcopal Church car and truck show fundraiser will be Saturday, Aug. 4. Proceeds go toward the Rise Against Hunger food-packing event this fall at Grace. Last year’s show drew 107 vintage cars and trucks. Staff Reports The idea started as a lark. On July 25, 2015, at the monthly Saturday free community lunch at Grace Episcopal Church in The Plains, church members Richard Asher and Paul Smith thought it’d be nice to have a picnic on the church grounds and invite a few folks who owned vintage cars. “We had eight cars and a restored 1950 John Deere tractor,” Asher says. Sue Smith, Paul’s wife who has organized the community lunch for the past 13 years, said the outside picnic with hot dogs and barbecue on the grill would be a unique way to celebrate the community lunch, normally held in the church’s parish hall. The third annual Grace Episcopal car and truck show coming up Saturday, Aug. 4, on the church grounds, 6507 Main St. in The Plains, has turned into the iconic church’s second biggest fundraiser, next to the Piedmont Regional Art Show and Sale each May.  “We had 50 cars in 2016, 107 last year and are planning for at least 150 this year,” says Smith of Haymarket, who believes spectators and participants are drawn to the fieldstone-laden church with shaded trees and picturesque setting. About 500 spectators showed up last year, maybe double that this year. Proceeds will benefit the Rise Against Hunger food packing event held in November at Grace, The Plains. Last year, 15,000 meals were packed and the church expects to package even more this year to help those in need throughout the world.

There are plenty of family activities at the show, to go along with hot dogs and BBQ for purchase. A Disney moon bounce, face painting, cornhole games and, new this year, a rector’s dunking booth. The Rev. Weston Mathews — the rector at Grace — will be the victim (or beneficiary). And, a 1969 Good Humor ice cream truck will sell frozen treats. Admission is free, but donations are gratefully accepted. Also, there will be a bake sale, 50/50 raffle and silent auction featuring items such as Washington Nationals tickets, die cast replica NASCAR cars, resort condo rentals and Virginia Tech football tickets. To enter a vintage display vehicle, day-of-show registration is $25. Cars can start arriving at 8 a.m. Aug. 4. Rain date is Aug. 11. A registration form can be requested ahead of time by contacting Asher, Smith or the church. Participants can complete and bring the form (with $25 fee) the day

of the show. There will be door prizes for the participants, top 20 awards, kids’ favorite award and best in show and rector’s favorite trophies. The Plains Volunteer Fire Department will display one of its fire trucks. Asher, whose wife Diana entered her 1960 Austin-Healey Bugeye Sprite in the first show, says the fundraiser has exceeded expectations. “We netted $4,000 in 2016 and $7,800 last year for the church’s outreach programs,” says Asher, who lives in Broad Run. “This has become a community event all the way. Plenty to do for entire families and great food.” For more information, contact Asher at or 540-272-3675 or Smith at or 540-270-0411 or Grace Church at www.gracetheplains. org, 540-253-5177 or gracechurch@


The Rev. Weston Mathews (right), rector of Grace Episcopal Church in The Plains, is shown with Larry Settle of Culpeper, who won last year’s Rector’s Favorite Trophy in the Grace Episcopal car and truck show. At least 150 cars and trucks are expected for this year’s fundraiser, set for Saturday Aug. 4, in The Plains.

‘Summer on the Green’ music to Fauquier’s ears By Anita Sherman Community Editor

News hit hard in April that the Bluemont Concert Series would be no more due to rising costs and revenue loses. For more than four decades, this popular concert series entertained audiences in several counties throughout Virginia. But, music lovers in Fauquier County weren’t disappointed long. Warrenton’s Allegro Community School of the Arts stepped up in royal fashion recasting this favorite summertime Culpeper Street gathering. “We were approached by the Town about coordinating these events for Warrenton when Bluemont announced the organization’s termination,” said Allegro Executive Director, Sam Yoder, in April. “The events fit well within the mission of Allegro. Allegro is pleased to assume responsibility for the concert series and intends to conduct them in a way that honors those who created and sustained Bluemont for 41 years. It is important that the concert series continue in the spirit of Bluemont and what they created.” “We were heartbroken when we got the news,” said Aimee O’Grady, a current board member and communications officer, “but Sam and Lachelle [Yoder, Allegro’s program

director] are ‘yes’ people, their first response is always ‘yes’ and when Brannon [Godfrey, Warrenton town manager] approached us about taking it on and continuing to bring arts to the community, it was an immediate ‘yes.’” “Because of its history of involvement in performing arts and the capacity to pick up the project, I was confident that Allegro could resume the programming with the support of the Town and the VCA [Virginia Commission for Arts] grant,” said Godfrey. “The summer concert series is a long-standing cultural event for the Town, and I believe this is a good option to preserve it for 2018.” Godfrey clarified that the VCA Local Government Challenge Grant is for $4,500 and is a one-to-one match. In fiscal 2018, the Town funded the Summer Concert Series for a total of $10,000 ($4,500 from the VCA grant and $5,500 from Town General Fund).

Hope your Fourth of July holiday was happy and safe. We know that it was very hot and many stayed in the comfort of air conditioning. We enjoyed several lovely cool evenings with friends at their mountain home where the temps were pleasant. Congratulations and best wishes to our sweet friends, Ina and Henry Ayres, who have recently celebrated their 57th wedding anniversary. Both stay very busy and active with church duties and family affairs. We wish them well. The Blue Ridge Flower Club held its June meeting at the Leeds Church

We recently had 4-H Camp and Congress. Backto-back weeks we had kids at camp and Congress representing all the 4-H is and this great community. Camp is held at the 4-H Center in Front Royal. This year the kids had the opportunity to take lots of different classes. Some of the class options were shooting sports, canoeing, fishing, baking, rocketry, a STEM-related course, doll making, leather crafts, outdoor cooking and sports. They also had a daily theme that many dressed up for and nightly activities such as dances, movies, and box car races. Since the

rain washed out many of those plans, there were fashion shows and board game tournaments to pass the time. Congress is a yearly event for older 4-Her’s to showcase their efforts in contests, spend time in workshops growing, and even have the opportunity to be tapped as an All Star. Congress week was wonderful and we had the honor of having two girls be selected for National 4-H Congress, which you must interview for. We said farewell to our own ambassador and state cabinet president but were very proud of all they accomplished this year. Coming up this summer is the Fauquier Fair Food Challenge where families and teams can compete in an event similar to “Chopped” on July 11. For the kids, on Aug. 8 and 9 we will have our Farm

Farm Service Agency acreage reports due July 16 By Vicky Moon

Contributing Writer

Charles Bennett, U.S. Department of Agriculture Farm Service Agency executive director in Fauquier, Loudoun, Prince William and Fairfax Counties, has announced that producers who file accurate and timely reports for all crops and land uses, including failed acreage, can prevent the potential loss of FSA program benefits. “In order to comply with FSA program eligibility requirements, all producers are encouraged to visit the FSA office in Warrenton to file an accurate crop certification report

by the applicable deadline,” Bennett said. The offices are located at 90 Alexandria Pike, suite 12 and can be reached at 540-347-4402, ext 2. Corn, soybeans, grain sorghum, and most NAP crops acreage reporting are due by July 16. Bennett has also sent word to The Fauquier Times of the following exceptions to the acreage reporting dates: • If the crop has not been planted by the acreage reporting date, then the acreage must be reported no later than 15 calendar days after planting is completed. • If a producer acquires additional acreage after the above acreage


reporting date, then the acreage must be reported no later than 30 calendars days after purchase or acquiring the lease. Appropriate documentation must be provided to the county office. • If a perennial forage crop is reported with the intended use of “cover only,” “green manure,” “left standing” or “seed,” then the acreage must be reported by July 15. Producers should also report crop acreage they intended to plant, but due to natural disaster, were prevented from planting. Prevented planting acreage must be reported on form CCC-576, Notice of Loss, no later than 15 calendar days after the final

July is the ripe time for heirloom tomatoes By Vicky Moon

Contributing Writer

In Spain, they celebrate “La Tomatina” near Valencia in late summer for an amusing tomato “dispute.” In Colorado, there’s the “Colorado Texas Tomato War.” Think tomato pie and fried green tomatoes for the Hannover Tomato Festival, July 9, in Mechanicsville. The tomato season is on the cusp of peaking and for our purposes, we’ll focus on the heirlooms. By now, we all know the tomato is considered a fruit because it contains the seeds of the plant.

The Cherokee Purple heirloom is one of the most popular in this area. An heirloom is defined as any tomato that has been around for more than 50 years. In generations past,

farmers shared seeds with friends and neighbors that adapted effortlessly to the local environment and territory. One such variety in our area is the Brandywine, which thrives on heat and humidity. It comes from Ohio, not Pennsylvania, as many may assume. To get up close and personal with these prized fruits in Fauquier and Prince William counties, consider the Warrenton Farmers Market on Wednesday and Saturday. Amanda and Stephen Day of Starstead Farm in Rixeyville will have the beginning of their crop of heirloom tomatoes this month.

The Days have been busy with 700 tomato plants they planted in two new, high tunnels this year. “The tunnels do not get rain and this prevents disease,” Amanda Day said recently. “We expect the heirlooms to be more productive this year.” They’ll sell them for $4 per pound, and all are organic. Their varieties include striped German, which is a ribbed and marbled red and yellow, green zebra, black prince and a Greek variety called Thessaloniki. Marie Smith, a former seventh grade math teacher at Parkside Middle School in Prince William, started her own farming business five years ago. Moose Acres Farm sits on 10 acres in Nokesville. She has a quarter-acre set aside for produce and has grown a number of heirloom tomatoes this season. They include the ever popular Cherokee Purple and a circa 1800 plant originally from West Virginia called hillbilly (Olanum lycopersicum) for both Warrenton markets. “With the (rainy) weather this year, it’s been a difficult project,” she said, adding, “because my husband helps on the weekends, but this is only me.” Jose Medina travels from Montross in Westmoreland County for Sunday’s Farmers Market at Archwood Green Barns in The Plains. He starts off selling his heirloom tomatoes for $3 per pound. As the season progresses, the price comes down to about $2.50. His Santa Cruz Produce will have Chocolate Cherokee, Virginia Sweets and Brandywine. “They are all well on the way,” he said. Just across from the lot at Archwood, Chester Hess also has a plethora of tomatoes with the big beefy Mr. Stripey, the ever-popular Cherokee purple and, of course, the Brandywine. He comes from Martinsburg, West Virginia, for the Sunday market and sells his for $2.99 per pound.

All local markets offer a wide selection of heirloom and hybrid tomatoes.

At Starstead Farm near Rixeyville, the tomatoes are grown and strung up in a high tunnel.

Christmas in July: Time to start crafting Most of us are familiar with the expression “Christmas in July,” referring to Christmas-themed events that occur in July. But where did the phrase originate? Here are some of its earliest known uses: • In the 1892 French opera “Werther,” a widowed Bailiff teaches his young children a Christmas carol in July. One of the characters comments: “When you sing Christmas in July, you rush the season.” • The Keystone Camp for Girls, near Brevard, North Carolina, began celebrating Christmas in July in the 1930s. The girls placed laundry bags outside their cabins to be filled with candy. The celebrations included Santa and Mrs. Claus, a Christmas tree, carolers and fake snow.

• The phrase gained prominence in 1940 when Christmas in July, a Preston Sturges comedy film starring Dick Powell and Ellen Drew, debuted. Retailers use Christmas in July promotions as a marketing tool to fill the void between Independence Day and Labor Day when sales often slow. For crafters, Christmas in July is a reminder to start work on homemade gifts to give during the holidays. Try your hand at book page ornaments and other holiday crafts at the next DIY program at the Warrenton central library – Christmas in July Crafts –Saturday, July 14, 10 a.m. – noon.

LFCC student transfers to Ivy League University, hopes to serve in CIA In the six years since he’s graduated from Central High School, Matthew Baroncelli has traveled the world as a U.S. Marine, completed humanitarian work, done research in South America, earned 30 credits at LFCC and taken part in the Warrior-Scholar Project at Yale University. Soon, he is transferring to Columbia University, one of the eight private colleges that make up the Ivy League. In addition to being accepted into Columbia University – where he expects more than 30 credits he earned while attending LFCC during the 2017-2018 year and as a dual-enrollment student in high school to transfer – Baroncelli has been named a Veterans in Global Leadership (VGL) fellow. He was one of just 30 college students accepted into the VGL fellowship this year, and the only one from a community college. The program starts with a four-day summit at Georgetown University that features intensive workshops, roundtables and presentations by former Cabinet secretaries, university presidents, think tank presidents and industry leaders, according to Throughout the next academic year, there will be seminars, panel events and networking, Baroncelli says. “Our goal is to cultivate student vet-

erans with high potential to serve as change agents and leaders in a range of fields,” the VGL site says. “VGL is focused on building the leadership pipeline of these veterans: highly competent, skilled leaders who have already excelled in facing and solving the complex challenges the U.S. and our allies face abroad. We recruit and guide the most qualified young student veterans from across the country who aspire to positions of global leadership.” Baroncelli always knew he wanted to both go to college and serve his country. Initially, he thought he would go to college first, but changed his mind. “At the age of 17 or 18, I felt my mind wasn’t ready to be in that college environment,” Baroncelli says. “I knew instead of blowing the next four years, I wanted to do something I had always wanted to do for this country while also receiving great direction and a goal-oriented mindset.” So he enlisted. While in the Marines – where he rose to the rank of corporal – for four years, he was deployed to Australia, New Zealand, South Korea and Thailand. During that time, he was able

to participate in a couple of humanitarian missions. In Thailand, Baroncelli worked with young children at the Child Protection and Development Center. “They were so ecstatic to have big kids playing with them and giving them the attention and interaction they needed,” he said. Baroncelli did similar work with aboriginal children in Australia. When it was time for his discharge, he was “yearning” for higher education. “At LFCC, I had an amazing experience,” Baroncelli says. “Sharon Painter (veteran academic advisor/certifying official) was wonderful. She went above and beyond what is expected. Sharon was right there from the beginning. She made everything very clear for me.” He is impressed by how much the Middletown Campus has expanded and improved in recent years. “It was a very enjoyable environment with very enjoyable classes to attend,” Baroncelli says. “It differed from the negative stereotype some people have of community colleges. I felt like I was

really on the right path towards something.” It was just the right transition from the military and later into Columbia, he says. He found out in March he had been accepted into the prestigious school. He will major in East Asian studies and will learn Mandarin. Baroncelli’s goal is to work for the CIA. His overseas adventures didn’t end when he got out of the Marines. Baroncelli recently returned from Formosa, Argentina, where he helped in behavioral observation and recordings with howler and owl monkeys as part of a long-term project among several universities. Clearly a passionate and compassionate young man, Baroncelli has also volunteered with veterans dealing with combat and service-related trauma.

College planner touts the rewards of community college Choosing to spend the first two years at community college in pursuit of a bachelor’s degree makes sense – well, actually lots of dollars and cents. That’s the advice often given to parents and prospective students by college planner and chartered federal loan specialist Luanne Lee, owner of Your College Planning Coach, located in the

Mason Enterprise Center at 70 Main St., Suite 23, Warrenton. One year of attending LFCC full-time cost $4,626 in the 2017-2018 academic year, which is just one-third the average cost of a Virginia public four-year institution’s tuition. “I just believe so much that community college is such a wonderful option for

so many students and families, not just from a financial standpoint, but an educational one as well,” Lee says. The Broad Run resident has been licensed in financial services since 1999. A few years after obtaining her license, she started seeing a disturbing trend in credit reports when working on getting clients mortgages. “Students, as well as their parents, were taking on all of this debt, and sometimes they weren’t getting jobs in the fields they’d studied,” Lee says. “I realized there was a niche, which is how I started doing college planning.” In addition to helping families navigate the financial aspects of choosing a college, she helps students select a career and find a college that is a good match for them financially, socially and vocationally. Many parents who are college graduates themselves are shocked at how expensive four-year universities are now and how little scholarship and grant money is available, Lee says. “When they graduated from college, which in many cases was 30 years ago, it wasn’t like it is today,” she says. “There are so many colleges that don’t give scholarships for good grades and SAT scores. The community college starting point is an excellent place for students.” Not only are there courses they could take that will allow them to seamlessly transfer to a four-year school, but sometimes they could choose a career that only requires an associate degree, or where a

career studies certificate is sufficient. Lee has noticed that community colleges have gained some luster in more recent years. “They really have gained the acceptance of parents, who are more open to sending their children to one,” she says. A young woman recently sent Lee a thank you note for her advice. Unable to attend a four-year university her freshman and sophomore years, she instead opted for community college those years. Many of the student’s friends who’d gone away to college were floundering, and some had to drop out due to financial constraints. “However, by this young lady going to community college first, she saved her family pretty close to $80,000 for the first two years,” Lee says. Another client of hers did extremely well in school and on his ACT, but couldn’t afford four years of tuition at a university. He decided to do the surgical technology program at LFCC, Lee says. “In a year he will have his certificate, be a surgical technician and be able to transfer as a junior into a four-year program – and beyond – if he chooses,” she says. “If not, you can make six figures as a surgical tech and have a wonderful career. “There are just so many options out there. People have to open their eyes and not get into a panic at the thought of their child not getting a four-year degree right out of high school.”
