Fauquier officials brace for Hurricane Florence By James Ivancic Times Staff Writer

Emergency services in Fauquier County were preparing this week for the arrival of Hurricane Florence, a fierce storm expected to hit North Carolina early Friday that’s predicted to bring between 4 and 6 inches of rain to Northern Virginia, depending on how long it lingers over land. “We are urging Fauquier County residents to not take this lightly. High winds and flooding are predicted for this area and we are already experiencing high water due to the amount of recent rainfall,” said Sgt. James Hartman, spokesperson for the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office. “The most important thing to remember is that we will most likely experience power outages, some of which may take days to repair,” he added. Hartman said the sheriff’s office has cancelled all leave and staff is on stand-

by and subject to call-out depending on the severity of the storm. The sheriff’s office is also working with local, state and federal partners to monitor the storm and its potential impact and would be updating and modifying emergency plans accordingly, Hartman said. Dominion Energy suggested keeping a supply of non-perishable food and bottled water on hand. Its customers should update their contact information with the utility. Heavy rains frequently resulted in flooding in parts of Fauquier County in recent months. It often occurred in areas along the Rappahannock River and small streams that overrun banks easily.

Filming for the movie “Billy and Blaze” returns to the Warrenton Horse Show grounds on Shirley Avenue Wednesday, Sept. 19. Producers expect to be at the historic showgrounds, a stand-in for the county fair in the 1936 C.W. Anderson classic, for a week or more. Period-attired extras are being sought, says production assistant Becky Hannam, to act as “spectators at the big county horse show,” and associated horse show action. Some horses and ponies may be needed, Hannam said, but the exact set requirements were not complete at press time. And, she cautioned, the wildcard factor of the weather forecast may shift the dates. “But our plan is to be in Warrenton next week to finalize this important scene,” she said. Based on Anderson’s beloved children’s series, the film tells the timeless the tale of Billy and his trusty pony Blaze. Filming began last fall around Charlottesville with outside shots captured near producer and screenwriter Cindy Erkel’s home in Afton.

Fauquier officials brace for Hurricane Florence STORM from page 1

On its Facebook page, the sheriff’s office warns against attempting to drive through high water. A video on the page urges having enough “food, fuel, pet supplies and medicines” on hand and to be prepared for an extended power outage. The Fauquier County Department of Fire, Rescue and Emergency has been posting updates on the track of Hurricane Florence on its Facebook page. “All I can emphasize is to get your storm prep done, check on neighbors that may not be able to get to the store, the elderly, the home bound” was the advice on the page Tuesday morning.

The fire, rescue and emergency service was coordinating with the volunteer companies to assess the need for increased staffing to handle water rescues.

Cockburn, Riggleman spar at Rappahannock forum By James Ivancic Times Staff Writer

Health care, gun control and immigration — and yes, Bigfoot — were in the mix during a spirited forum featuring Republican Denver Riggleman and Democrat Leslie Cockburn Wednesday, Sept. 5 in Rappahannock County. The two are in the final stretch of their campaigns for the congressional seat representing Virginia’s 5th District, which includes most of Fauquier County. They are vying to succeed Republican Rep. Tom Garrett, who withdrew from seeking a second term, citing a problem with alcoholism. The election is Nov. 6.

Health care

During the forum, Cockburn called for restoration of the Affordable Care Act. “Trump pulled the legs out of the subsidies” that helped make insurance through the ACA more affordable, she said. She favors a “Medicare for all” option as well as negotiating with pharmaceutical companies to lower the cost of medications. Cockburn said foreign nations provide universal health insurance at far less cost and that the U.S. should learn from their example. Riggleman questioned whether Americans want “a single-pay system like the Veterans Administration,” which has been beset by complaints about the medical care provided to veterans. Riggleman said he supports an expansion of Health Savings Accounts and raising the amount people can deposit in them. Medicare for all will cost trillions of dollars, Riggleman asserted. He called for an audit of all government spending and then “roll[ing] in” presumed savings into programs serving public need.


Cockburn called for the closing of the “gun

show loophole” that allows gun sales without a waiting period for a background check, to ensure that domestic violence perpetrators can’t purchase guns and the elimination of the sale of large-capacity ammunition magazines, which she said put police at risk. Riggleman noted that felons — such as the domestic violence perpetrators Cockburn referred to — are already barred from buying firearms.


Riggleman said he supports the bill blocked by the Senate early this year that would have banned abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy. The bill had exceptions for victims of rape or incest and to protect the mother’s health. Cockburn said she opposed cutting off funding to Planned Parenthood, which she noted is a source of care beyond reproductive services for 24 million women.


Riggleman maintained that farmers want strong borders. He said they want to make it easier to hire immigrant labor through a program called H2C that would allow foreigners to stay in the U.S. year-round with a 36-month renewable visa. The worker would have to leave the country for a total of 45 days during that time. H2C was in a comprehensive immigration reform bill that failed in the House of Representatives in June. Cockburn called for comprehensive immigration reform rather than a longer border wall as President Trump wants “ICE [U.S. Immigration and Custom Enforcement] is really behaving in a way that we need reform,” she added.


Cockburn was on home ground. She lives in Castleton in Rappahannock County, though Rig-

gleman noted she also has a residence in Washington, D.C., and he referred to two others. He mused that much of the mileage she’s put on her car was because of the D.C.-Rappahannock commute rather than traveling the district campaigning, as she said was the case. Cockburn replied that the D.C. home is used by her husband, Andrew Cockburn, who is Washington editor of Harper’s Magazine. That exchange came after Cockburn called out Riggleman for choosing Pennsylvania as the site for an expansion of his Nelson County distillery. “The reason that Virginia is not a good place for sales is because they have a 54-percent tax per bottle on everything I sell from my distillery. In Pennsylvania, it’s 3 to 6 percent,” Riggleman said. Production remains in Virginia. Riggleman said he’s been able to hire more workers thanks to the Trump tax cuts. Gross sales have increased 23 percent since Trump became president, he added.


Riggleman made light of a Cockburn tweet about a Riggleman Instagram post that showed an illustration of the mythical creature Bigfoot with a black bar over its genitals. Riggleman co-wrote one book about Bigfoot and just wrote a second titled, “Mating Habits of Big Foot and Why Women Want Him.” Riggleman said the illustration was a joke among military buddies and insisted once again that he isn’t into “Bigfoot erotica.” He did wear Bigfoot-illustrated socks, which he revealed by pulling up his pant legs. Both candidates drew supporters who filled the 225-seat Little Washington Theater. Others couldn’t get in. The forum was sponsored by the Rappahannock News and the Businesses of Rappahannock.

Herring promotes local effort to combat elder crime Virginia’s attorney general one of 16 signers to Fauquier’s first TRIAD agreement By Karen Chaffraix Times Staff Writer

The Fauquier Senior Center was the setting for the Sept. 6 signing of the Virginia TRIAD, an agreement between local law enforcement and senior-citizen service providers to prevent crimes against the elderly. The signing cemented an open-ended campaign of information-sharing and education that aims to help seniors become aware of common fraud schemes targeting the elderly and to provide them tools to ward off trouble and feel comfortable interacting with

local law enforcement. About 40 people attended the event, some with wheelchairs, walkers and canes. They joined Warrenton Mayor Carter Nevill, Fauquier County Sheriff Bob Mosier and directors from 15 local agencies serving the elderly. Virginia Attorney General Mark R. Herring (D) was the featured speaker. “I am so glad we are getting this partnership started,” Herring said. “In a world that feels tumultuous and uncertain, everyone should know that their attorney general and their sheriff will always stand with

them, and fight for them and fight for your families and your community. Our obligation is to keep you safe and protect you from crime. That’s why TRIAD is so important. “ Called the Fauquier County TRIAD Cooperative Agreement, the document states that because crime and fear of crime impact the elderly, a growing segment of the population, it’s important “the area’s leading law enforcement agencies devote special attention to the needs of senior citizens.” While national in scope, Virginia’s TRIAD program is unique in that it’s administered by the state attorney general’s office. The commonwealth now has 141 TRIADs in place. Fauquier’s was one of 16 that received grants this year. TRIAD, which means “group of three,” was established in 1988 when three national organizations — the American Association of Retired Persons , the International Association of Chiefs of Police and the National Sheriffs’ Association — determined the elderly are best protected from crime by agreement between law enforcement and those serving seniors. “TRIAD is a proven crime-prevention tool because knowledge is power,” Herring said. “TRIAD partnerships get a tremendous amount of work done. Public safety threats are constantly changing, so our response

Things like identity theft, cybercrime, financial crime — older Virginians especially are targeted.” “You all had a generation where you trusted each other, looked out for each other, your word was your bond. Financial fraudsters know that. They think you are more vulnerable. What TRIAD is all about is giving you the tools you need to protect yourselves,” Herring added. Staying informed by way of statewide outreach directors, the AG’s office helps coordinate TRIAD conferences and trainings and funds a

Former PTO president could face prison for embezzlement

A former president of the Grace Miller Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization has pleaded guilty to seven felonies in connection with charges she stole about $13,000 from the organization and forged checks, according to Fauquier County Commonwealth’s Attorney Jim Fisher. Kiley Morgan Gonzalez, of Bealeton, was arrested in April and charged with five counts of forgery and uttering and 10 counts of embezzlement in connection with transfers made between her personal bank account and that of the Grace Miller Elementary PTO. The Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office received a complaint in early April regarding suspicious activity involving the PTO account. A police investigation determined the fraudulent activity occurred between October 2017 and April 2018, according to an earlier press release. Gonzalez faces a Nov. 13 sentencing hearing.

Fauquier Times | | September 12, 2018

In a press release, Fisher said Tuesday Gonzalez could face a possible 90-year prison term, although he noted that such an extreme sentence “is unlikely.”

Deputies deploy taser 3 times to subdue man armed with machete

A 27-year-old New York man who witnesses said was “waving a machete at passing cars” was arrested Sunday night after Fauquier County sheriff’s deputies shocked him with a taser three times in an attempt to subdue him. Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a 911 call on Turkey Run Road, off Meetz Road, at 8:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 9. The caller reported a man armed with a machete, Sheriff’s Office spokesman Sgt. James Hartman said in a press release. They located the man standing with three other individuals next to a car on the side of the road, Hartman said. Three of the four individuals obeyed deputies

commands. The man described in the 911 call as having a machete repeatedly challenged deputies and was extremely uncooperative, Hartman said. “Deputies then deployed a taser twice with no effect,” Hartman wrote. “A K-9 was unsuccessful in bringing the man under control.” Daniel Reyes-Estrada, 27, of Central Islip, New York, was charged with drunk in public, obstruction of justice, possession of marijuana, possession of a schedule IV narcotic and two counts of brandishing a machete in connection with the incident, Hartman said. Reyes-Estrada was also found to have sustained injuries prior to his encounter with law enforcement and was transported to the Fauquier Hospital Emergency Room, Hartman said. There was no word on what kind injuries Reyes-Estrada suffered. He remained in the hospital Tuesday morning, Hartman said. Dalyn James Skinner, 20, of Warrenton, was released on a summons for possession of marijuana in connection with the incident.

NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC OF AN APPLICATION BY COLUMBIA GAS OF VIRGINIA, INC., FOR APPROVAL TO IMPLEMENT A 2019 SAVE PLAN INFRASTRUCTURE RELIABILITY AND REPLACEMENT ADJUSTMENT IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION 20 OF ITS GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS CASE NO. PUR-2018-00132 On August 15, 2018, Columbia Gas of Virginia, Inc. (“CVA” or “Company”), filed with the State Corporation Commission (“Commission”), pursuant to the Steps to Advance Virginia’s Energy Plan (SAVE) Act, Chapter 26 of Title 56 (“SAVE Act”) of the Code of Virginia (“Code”), an application (“Application”) for approval to implement a 2019 Infrastructure Reliability and Replacement Adjustment (“IRRA”). Section 56-604 A of the SAVE Act allows CVA to recover SAVE eligible infrastructure costs (as defined in Code § 56-603) through a SAVE Rider, which is defined in the Company’s tariff as the IRRA. Accordingly, CVA requests authority to implement a 2019 IRRA in accordance with Section 20 of its General Terms and Conditions, as contemplated in the Commission’s November 28, 2011 Order Approving SAVE Plan and Rider in Case No. PUE 2011-00049, and most recently modified by the December 13, 2017 Order Approving Amended SAVE Rider for Calendar Year 2018 in Case No. PUR-2017-00095. The 2019 IRRA comprises a 2017 Infrastructure Replacement Reconciliation Rate (“IRRR”) and a 2019 Infrastructure Replacement Current Rate (“IRCR”) and is billed as a combined fixed charge each month. The 2017 IRRR is designed to true-up, on an annual basis, the actual IRRA revenues against the preceding year’s actual cost of service as determined from actual SAVE-eligible expenditures. The 2019 IRCR is designed to recover projected costs associated with SAVE-eligible infrastructure replacements during calendar year 2019.

Warrenton considers water, sewer for possible community college expansion By James Ivancic Times Staff Writer

Lord Fairfax Community College needs more room for trade and workforce classes at its Warrenton campus. A possible expansion could hinge, in part, on whether the Town of Warrenton is willing to provide the necessary water and sewer service. The Warrenton Town Council’s public works and utilities committee will consider a request to supply the service to land Fauquier County proposes to donate to LFCC for a proposed new building. The town currently supplies town water and sewer to the LFCC buildings on its Warrenton campus off U.S. 17/29 under an existing agreement. The county is considering a donation of 50 acres adjacent to the college for a new trade skills building. Fauquier students now have to travel 45 minutes to the main campus in Middletown for such training or take classes in makeshift locations, such as at the Boys and Girls Club in Warrenton where plumbing is taught, said County Administrator Paul McCulla during a Warrenton Town Council work session Thursday, Sept. 6. McCulla said there are impediments to getting state funding for new academic buildings. “It took 20 years and a $1 million

“The board of supervisors needs an indication from the town that it’s willing to extend service and an affirmative statement from the college that it wants a workforce center.”

Hazel grant to get it moving forward,” he said, referring to Eleanor C. and William Hazel Hall, a building for science, health and engineering instruction. Ground was broken on the Warrenton campus for it last December. “We can’t expect any more state funding for 10 years,” McCulla said. “If we want another building we

have to do it.” The county proposes to donate the 50 acres to the Lord Fairfax Community College Foundation. The foundation would raise the construction money. “The board of supervisors needs an indication from the town that it’s willing to extend service and an affirmative statement from the college

that it wants a workforce center,” McCulla said. The college won’t get the land if it decides it doesn’t want the building. During peak periods, the college is currently using about one-tenth of the 150,000 gallons per month of water and sewer service allowed under the 1995 agreement, said Edward “Bo” Tucker, the town’s public works and utilities director. Councilman Brett Hamby (Ward 3) said he wants to bring the matter before the public works and utilities committee to consider and make a recommendation to council. Contact James Ivancic at

A POSITION OF HONOR Those selected to be pallbearers at a funeral should consider it an honor to be asked to accept responsibility for carrying a loved one to his or her final resting place. Depending on the size and weight of the casket, there are typically six to eight pallbearers who have both the distinction and duty of carrying the casket. When making this important decision, some may feel that it is not proper to ask a family member to make the commitment. With this in mind, if a family member is neither physically nor emotionally able to assume the task, it may be preferable to ask a friend, business associate, or other family member to accept the honor. After someone you love passes away, surround yourself with people who care about you and can help you with whatever need arises. This includes selecting the best pallbearers. Caskets can be quite heavy, so make sure all of the pallbearers are capable of lifting. They may have to walk over uneven ground, so pallbearers should wear comfortable.

Fauquier Health breaks ground on $12.5M cancer center By Karen Chaffraix Times Staff Writer

Nurses, doctors, hospital staff and company representatives gathered under a blue and white tent stamped with the Fauquier Health logo. Seven shovels leaned against its canvas wall, facing a long box of dirt. It was 10 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 7, ceremonial groundbreaking day for the new Fauquier Health Center for Cancer Care. Soon to break ground for real, the structure should come to life, on this grassy slope at the corner of Carriage House Lane and Veterans Drive, in August 2019. Fauquier Health’s new cancer center will be a two-story, 25,650-squarefoot structure built adjacent to the hospital. Infusion services currently offered at the hospital will be housed there, along with a hematology/oncology clinic, a pharmacy, lab services, counseling services to include financial counseling, a meeting room and room to grow. They hope to attract specialized practitioners and expand to include radiation services. “We are already talking to new groups about space for sub-specialties we don’t currently have available in the market,” said Fauquier Health CEO Chad Melton. “Oncology is not new to us,” he added. “We’ve been providing that service for many years. Just to give you a few statistics from 2017: We saw 239 oncology patients. Sixty

were breast cancer patients, 41 were prostate; 40 had urinary tract-type issues related to oncology. Our infusion center team [was responsible for] over 6,000 treatments in 2017.” Additional speeches drew upon recollections of loved ones who had fought cancer and succumbed. “It’s emotional for me to be here,” Warrenton Mayor Carter Nevill said, mentioning that not only was he born in this hospital, his stepmother was born at its earlier incarnation on Waterloo Street. “Cancer is indiscriminate. It affects us all. My wife, Kathleen, is in Lynchburg today, taking her mother to treatment,” he said. “We welcome the construction of Fauquier Health Center for Cancer Care.” Birds chirped and a warm breeze blew. “Patients are going to have a nice view, one woman said to another during an interlude. “Their windows will look out on this side — at the trees.” “This is just the beginning of further service line integration for this community,” said Victor Giovanetti, president of LifePoint Health’s Eastern Group. “We are committed to supporting communities that want to provide advanced, quality care close to home. “Cancer is one of the scourges of the earth,” he added, divulging that in 2007 his older brother died of leukemia. “Families come into our organizations in many cases unsure, scared to death, in the most vulnerable moments of their life, and we have an obligation to take good care of them spiritually,

Representatives ceremoniously break ground on the new Fauquier Health Center for Cancer Care Friday, Sept. 7. The two-story, 25,650-squarefoot structure built adjacent to the hospital. ROBIN EARL/ FAUQUIER HEALTH emotionally and physically.” Last to speak was state Del. Michael Weber, R-18th, who said both of his children were born at Fauquier Hospital. “We have always received quality care here, and that is key,” he said. “But it is also key for a healthcare system to be tied to the community. As LifePoint came on, as the PATH foundation was formed, the ties to this community have always been here and always will be.” Webert said Fauquier has always been a place where people rally around those in need. Now people who need cancer care will be able to be treated in the community where that support system exists, he concluded. Celebratory words delivered, it was time for photographs. Twenty-one people, doctors and all, took turns — there were only seven shovels — donning white construction helmets as they — three, two, one — tried to shovel dirt out of the box in unison and all to the left, faces up, smiling.

LifePoint Health invested “nearly $12.5 million” for construction of the cancer center, according to its press release. The Tennessee-based company, one of the 10 largest health-care services aggregates in the country, currently owns Fauquier Hospital along with 83 other “non-urban” hospitals in 30 states, according to its website. While LifePoint Health continues to acquire regional health care providers, it recently merged with RCCH HealthCare Partners, and both are owned by investment fund Apollo Global Management, founded in 1990. As of the second quarter 2018, Apollo showed assets under management of $269 billion, a 10-year climb from $53 billion, according to its website, “driven largely by yield-oriented permanent capital vehicles, and by Apollo’s continued success in opportunistic investing.” Reach Karen Chaffraix at

From sweaty students to leaky roofs: Virginia’s aging schools need help Once upon a time, the mantra in late May or early June, when the school year came to an end, was: “See you in September!” As kids, we looked at the Labor Day holiday as the last hurrah. D-Day. More recently, school districts have pushed their first day into August, squeezing maintenance schedules and shortening summer break from just short of three months to something closer to two. While certainly not second guessing the needs of today’s school systems, it is nonetheless concerning when temperatures reach into the upper 90s, as they did last week. No doubt, it can get just as hot in September or even early October. But they call late August the “dog days of summer” for good reason, and images of kids sweating to death in buses or classrooms — either without air conditioning OUR VIEW or with aging, inadequate air conditioning systems — is something no one wants to see. Even worse, some school divisions declare it “too hot” to go outside for recess. Obviously, the safety of students is our school districts’ No. 1 priority, and we know they are making wise decisions. Indeed, some rural districts dismissed early last week in response to the heat. But regardless of intentions, there is no doubt starting school in August, along with the trend of hotter summers, has to put a far greater strain on school infrastructure, and we find that concerning, too. That’s part of the motivation behind state Sen. Bill Stanley’s tour of aging and obsolete schools across the state. With Virginia eyeing a move to collect taxes on internet sales, Stanley, R-20th, is promoting an idea to use at least half of the expected $250 to $300 million in additional revenue to finance $3 to $4 billion in bonds for new school construction. He has also proposed allowing businesses to qualify for historic tax credits if they donate money to renovate old schools. Last week, Stanley was among three Virginia state senators visited Fred Lynn Middle School in Woodbridge to hear about the 54-year-old school’s needs. Stanley, who notes more than 60 percent of Virginia’s 2,030 schools are more than 40 years old, has seen it all: schools where trash cans catch water from leaky roofs; where children have suffered burns from exposed pipes and where staff members tell of rat infestations. I think we can all agree these are not the conditions we want our children learning in. We applaud any effort to find new and creative ways to improve conditions in our schools as well as any effort that draws attention to deficiencies in our school facilities. We encourage our local state senators and delegates to use Stanley’s tour as a springboard to listen to our local officials about local school needs. In Fauquier County, the decadelong effort to build a new middle school to replace the aging Warrenton and Taylor middle schools immediately come to mind as a project that could benefit from a boost in state funding. We need to make improving our aging schools a priority. It’s the least we owe our children.

FAUQUIER FLASHBACKS: FROM THE FAUQUIER TIMES In November 1964, Tom Frost provided Fauquier County Public Schools with a new dual-control Ford sedan for the drier training program. From left: Tom Frost, Superintendent Carson Bradley, Assistant Superintendent Jack Harner, Driving Instructor Robert Downs, Principal Ryland Dishner and students Richard Evans and William Lewis. 75 Years Ago Sept. 16, 1943 In order to raise Fauquier County’s $600,000 quota in the Third War Loan Campaign, it will be necessary that those citizens who have available resources invest such funds in war bonds, P.G. Marsteller, campaign chairman, said Tuesday. Powhatan M. Kehoe, son of Mr. and Mrs. John C. Kehoe of Bealeton, won his Navy “Wings of Gold” and was commissioned an Ensign in the Naval Reserve this week, following completion of the prescribed flight training course at the naval Air Training Center, Pensacola, Fla. Fauquier County’s Service Honor Roll has been brought up-to-date, and now bears nearly 1,400 names of the county’s men and women serving their country in the armed forces. More names are being received by T.E. Bartenstein and will be added to the list. During the last war, 886 men entered the various branches of the service, 686 under draft and about 200 volunteers. 50 Years Ago Sept. 19, 1968 The Fauquier Hospital’s trustees learned Monday that the hospital’s endowment fund has received a $140,438 bequest from Col.

Disappointed with cell tower’s signal

“… if it ain’t broke, don’t break it,” begins the letter in support of Rob Wittman’s re-election campaign. I’m wondering by what metric the author sees this Congress as functional. After the GOP’s 1.5 trillion dollar tax cut for the wealthy, the national debt tops 21 trillion for the first time ever. The administration and the GOP Congress seek to balance the budget on the backs of federal workers, blocking a pay raise for 1.5 million workers, and by cuts to food stamps (cuts that would affect military families and children) as well as proposed cuts to Social Security and Medicare. Additionally, under the GOP controlled Congress, we’ve seen cuts to regulations protecting worker safety, consumer protections, the environment, and more. After all, what does a little coal ash in your drinking water hurt? Furthermore, this Congress refuses to perform their most important constitutionally mandated duty which is to be a check on the power of the executive branch. He then goes on to argue that “… the devil you know, is better than the devil you don’t know.” Actually, as a constituent of Rob Wittman, I know his record quite well and I firmly believe it’s time for a change! I know that Wittman has been in office for almost eleven years and has passed only five of his own bills. Two of these were to name a post office and a section of river, another was the “Permanent Electronic Duck Stamp Act.” I also know that Wittman has a 0 percent rating from the NAACP, the ACLU and multiple teachers’ and workers unions. I know he has a 100 percent rating from the NRA and a 0 percent rating from the Brady Campaign. I know that he fights vigorously for increased defense spending while his top campaign contributor is the defense industry. I was interested to read that the author, who admitted he is not currently a resident of the 1st District, finds Wittman to be “one of the most communicative congressional representatives” he’s experienced. I am a constituent of Wittman’s and have

I read with interest your recent article on the new cell tower near Casanova and I would like to offer a comment or two. I live 1.2 miles due south of the new tower. Before the new tower we had very poor cell service at the farm. Promises, politics, and policy aside, we still have poor cell coverage. The best signal now is two bars and frequently one What is troubling about the situation is that during the final adjustment and alignment of the tower antennas we frequently had a four bar (max) signal. Neighbors noticed this also. When they finished the project we

Never forget Every September I wear a 9/11 pin on my lapel that says “never forget.” Designed by a Philadelphia jeweler and sold in conjunction with Michael Smerconish on his radio program, all of the profits from sales go to 9/11 charities. Not usually prone to such expenditures, I was drawn to it because the original charity benefiting was the Flight 93 memorial, heroes who should never be forgotten. The planes that hit the twin towers and the Pentagon that day left an indelible mark on their respective cities, but the plane that was forced down in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, before reaching its target really only left some scorched earth on a hill. Their sacrifice deserves far better. For many of us, 9/11 is like Pearl Harbor or the Kennedy assassination. We remember where we were and what we were doing when we first heard. I remember being woken up in time to see the second plane hit in

contacted him many times by email, phone, and facebook messenger yet have never received a response other than a generic form letter that doesn’t address my specific concerns. Wittman virtually never has an open, advertised town hall, in spite of many requests by his constituents. Instead he chooses to conduct Facebook town halls or unpublicized gatherings with select supporters. In contrast, his opponent Vangie Williams has conducted innumerable open events with potential constituents from all over the 1st District. Williams is a wife, a mother of six daughters, has a full-time job as a strategic planner, and is in the process of completing a PhD, yet she finds time to attend events multiple nights a week and on the weekends. Williams welcomes the opinions of all as she seeks to become the “people’s Congresswoman.” Williams has rejected all donations from PACs while 47 percent of Wittman’s campaign cash has come from PACs and another 46 percent from large contributors. Vangie Williams has worked for 30 years, overseeing federal contracts which have kept Americans safe. Williams believes in Medicare for all including dental and vision insurance as she doesn’t think hardworking Americans should go bankrupt taking care of their medical needs. Williams has a plan, her INVEST initiative, which would give a tax break to those who need it the most: veterans, service men and women, teachers, and first responders. As we approach the Nov. 6th elections, let’s follow John McCain’s lead, look past partisan labels, and choose a candidate based on their values and platforms. Don’t choose the “devil you know” when there are ample opportunities to educate yourself. Go to, find an event where you can talk to Williams in person, visit and for more information. Democracy is not a spectator sport!

Every mother’s nightmare

Andrea Martens Sumerduck

When University of Iowa student, Mollie Tibbetts, went missing while on a run, my heart sank and I had a physical reaction to her disappearance. How often had my own daughters jogged alone against my advice? How often do they still do so? It could easily have been them. When her body was found, I was deeply saddened and couldn’t imagine the grief her parents were feeling. When her alleged killer was arrested, I was relieved. If this man was her killer, he was now in police custody and unable to harm anyone else. When I realized that the suspect was an illegal immigrant, I felt a range of emotions. Among those emotions was dread. Why? I believed that anti-immigration forces would use this alleged killer as their rallying cry for hatred and bigotry and, indeed, that is precisely what transpired. “This is why we have to build that WALL!” and, “Remember Mollie Tibbetts when you vote in November!” When I read the courageous and compassionate words of Mollie’s Aunt, Billie Jo Calderwood, I was filled with gratitude. She stated, “Please remember, evil comes in EVERY color.” “Our family has been blessed to be surrounded by love, friendship and support throughout this entire ordeal by

real time. I remember that it was one of those bright, sunny September days where you don’t want to go to work, because summer is fading. I remember that all hands were on deck at the paper, not because we received a call, just because we knew that was where we were needed. And it was a day where you wanted to be needed. To do something. All day culling stories, building pages and calling anyone we knew who might have witnessed something and had ties to our area. The entire day, the TV on in the background, as we watched the towers fall. One of the remarkable aspects of a monumental moment such as 9/11 is the passage of time. Seventeen years have now passed. Today’s high-schoolers were too young to remember or had

yet to be born. They have only known this country in a time of war. And that’s one of the most important reasons we can never forget. The casualties of 9/11 are still happening today. Just last week, in an insider attack, a U.S. service member became the sixth to die this year in America’s longest war. A war many in this country don’t really pay much mind to. A war longer than the Civil War, World War II, even Vietnam. A war that will soon be fought by many of those children currently in high school, and I’m starting to fear as I grow older, their children as well. Meanwhile, five years after the death of Osama bin Laden, al Qaeda’s number two, Ayman al-Zawahiri is still out there. Whether he is the mastermind now, or simply a pretender, the videos keep coming. They just don’t make the news anymore. Bin Laden’s death may have provided a convenient bookend for many, but tell that to the men and women down range. Casualties happen here at home


were back where we started. What was possible and promised from the new tower and what we got is where the disappointment lies. The tower was not an improvement for a lot of Verizon customers. I would like to commend Ms. Pivec of Calvert Crossland for her prompt answers to my calls and questions. A more equitable distribution of signal from the new tower would be a big help to a lot of customers.

friends from all different nations and races,” she added. “From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.” When I vote in November, I will be thinking of Mollie Tibbetts and the individuals who tried to leverage her tragic death for their political agenda. I will be voting for the candidates who offer reasoned solutions to our Nation’s immigration challenges. I will be voting for those candidates who support an agenda of compassion, equality, and the rule of law and will hold our Nation’s leaders to that standard. I will be voting for progressive Democrats. I hope you will, too. Kathy Kadilak The Plains

Thanks from Fauquier High Class of 1978 Fauquier High School Class of 1978 expresses its thanks to the following businesses for sponsoring our 40th Reunion Events: • Blue Ridge Seafood Restaurant • Passmore Contracting • Country Chevrolet • Appleton Campbell Plumbing, Heating, A/C, Electrical • JL Ashby Excavating, LL Allen Gibbs Chesterfield as well, and not just to those scarred by war. A recent story in the Los Angeles Times documented the alarming level of cancer deaths among first responders and investigators exposed to toxins in the aftermath of the attacks. “It’s like Bin Laden is still reaching out from the grave,” FBI Agent Thomas O’Connor, president of the FBI Agents Association, is quoted as saying. Not 17 years ago. Today. Many first responders were lost that day. Many lives were lost in the wars that followed. And an increasing number are still dying. Each and every one should be remembered. They chose to sacrifice their lives for something greater: their fellow citizens in a moment of need, the safety of their nation from foreign attack. That’s their legacy, and we should use it to dedicate ourselves to the greater good. To finding a way to bring those war fighters home. To do right by those FBI agents. None should die in vain or in the shadows. Never forget.

Jacked-Up Foods tones down the heat Sauces, jams, rubs focus on flavor while supporting autism research By John Hagarty

Contributing Writer

The bottled magic all started with a 10-year-old in the kitchen. The young chef triggered what today is a successful spice and sauce gig that’s headed for a bigger and more flavorful future. The young man behind the idea is Jack Zalewski, now a maturing 14-yearold whose parents, Jon and Kat, own and operate the Fredericksburg condiment business Jacked-Up Foods. Their product line is available at a number of establishments in the Piedmont region including Fauquier County. Their daughter Aubrie also plays a creative role in designing product labels. And if creating a thriving small business with the core family wasn’t enough, Kat Zalewski’s two brothers, Andy and Chris Morgan, are also driving the business forward. Clearly this company is a family-first organization. So, what was Jack Zalewski’s creative flash point that started it all? “One morning we came down to the kitchen and Jack was standing on a chair making up his own spice rub. He wanted to learn how to cook,” said Kat Zalewski. The lad’s interest in spices occurred the same summer the family had been growing hot peppers and making sauces and jams. Friends and family loved the taste and encouraged


Kat Zalewski’s brothers, Andy and Chris Morgan, are also in the business. Pictured, Andy Morgan, who grew up in Warrenton, welcomes all to try their barbecue sauces. the couple to go commercial. “We came up with the idea of starting a business where we would also donate part of our proceeds to various autism charities. Jack has autism spectrum disorder and at some point, we’ll have him working in the business. We also want to hire people with special needs in the future. Everyone deserves something they can do,” said Zalewski. Contributions to autism organizations range from 1 percent to 5 percent of all sales. Because of Jack’s autism he cannot have anything artificial in his diet. It was the goal of the family to create products that contained all-natural

ingredients that were highly flavored. If they do not use their own grown vegetables, they purchase them from Piedmont Farms in Fauquier County.

Kitchen magic

As the embryonic business began to gain traction, the jams, jellies and rubs caught spice aficionados’ attention. Meanwhile Zalewski’s brother, Andy Morgan, was making barbecue sauces for home use and also entering them in competitions. She and her brothers grew up in Warrenton. “Andy made this incredible sauce. I tried to out-sauce him and could not do it. I said, ‘Hey, we could work together,’” said Zalewski. Today, Andy

and his brother Chris Morgan contribute five barbecue sauces to the company’s Jacked-Up Foods product line called Uncle Andy’s sauces. Two of the sauces are sold on Amazon Prime – the Awesome and Blackberry Habanero – and sport five-star ratings from enthusiastic buyers. All of the products are currently made in the home kitchen for now. From purchasing the ingredients, to preparation, bottling and labeling it is a five-day-a-week operation. A passion for the business is evidenced by the fact that Kat Zalewski works part-time as a registered nurse and prepares all the recipes. See JACKED-UP, Page 12

Don’t tell – our national aversion to discussing personal finance As I write this I’m visiting longtime friends in Germany. Over dinner the past few evenings, our conversation has turned to retirement, as within the next decade both they and I will be approaching retirement age in our respective countries. A couple data points have piqued my interest, including the fact that though average Germans save more than average Americans do, a 2018 survey indicates they do not have appreciably more in retirement savings. According to the survey, this is largely due to the fact median incomes in Germany are somewhat lower and the cost of living higher, than in the states. When I asked my friends about their retirement funding they pointed to their daughter and said, half-jokingly, “She’s a big part of the plan.” But here’s a personal observation: We Americans tend to speak of retirement finances with much more judgmentalism and a much greater degree of shame and secrecy. Did your 401(k) take a big hit after the financial cri-

U.S. of Aging LAURIE MacNAUGHTON sis? Tsk-tsk. Have you not saved the recommended $1.5 million for retirement? For shame. Are you considering a reverse mortgage? Don’t tell friends or family – not now, not ever. I see the impact of this attitude played out time and time again. A homeowner encounters an unexpected event – illness, loss of a spouse, loss of employment shortly before retirement, a later-in-life divorce – and suddenly needs access to a significant amount of funds. Because we Americans do not feel comfortable openly discussing finances, for many the only option is to look to their bank for a traditional home equity loan. But here’s the thing: Let’s say the homeowner qualifies for a tradition-

al home equity loan. For the first 29 days after closing everything seems fine – cash need solved. However, day 30 is the kicker because now there’s a mortgage payment due. And, for some homeowners this new loan payment is on top of an existing mortgage. Even if the homeowner can juggle payments over the near term, over the long term, the situation can be a recipe for disaster. So, what are some potential alternatives? First, awkward as it may be, the homeowner needs to talk to family. They’re going to know sooner or later, and these conversations do not get easier over time – nor do financial situations typically get better over time. Over the years, many adult children have told me they wish their parents had been more open in discussing financial matters. Second, the homeowner should speak with a qualified financial planner, wealth manager, or elder law attorney who can help put together a long-range financial plan.

Third, the homeowner should consider using the home as a source of retirement funding. Several options exist here, including selling the home and downsizing, renting out a portion of the home or doing a reverse mortgage. Money is not a moral issue, though it can feel like one. Running short on money is not a sin, though we can be made to feel it’s one. And asking for help is not a weakness, though our culture may imply it’s one. If you have questions about how a reverse mortgage may benefit your loved one, or if you would like contact information for elder law attorneys, financial planners, or wealth managers – or just about anyone associated with aging-related issues – give me a call. I always love hearing from you. A member of the 2017 President’s Club, Laurie MacNaughton is a reverse mortgage specialist and freelance writer. Reach her at www. or 703-477-1183.

Falcon subs key strong volleyball showing at Albemarle By Fred Hodge

Special to the Times

Fauquier traveled Saturday to the Albemarle Invitational Volleyball Tournament knowing it would not have all of its senior weapons available. Middle blocker Kayla Pavlock was out for a family trip and Jules Oravec was involved in academic testing for the morning session. Coach Diana Story chose sophomore Kate Wilvert and junior Olivia Eisele to play prime roles and the duo met the challenge with their best play of the fall, helping the Falcons produce four victories in five matches for third place in the eight-team field. The wins raised the Falcons’ overall record to 5-3. Senior Kiki Scott earned an all-tournament berth for

her day-long solid play. Wilvert, playing the right side hitter, registered 12 kills and two blocks in her two matches as a starter, while Eisele also was effective along the forward line. “I had to put together the right group on the court,” Story said. “Kate is a varsity returner, but she has been lying in wait for her time. Kate came out from the right pole, and she was a deal breaker.” Story said Eisele also flashed her skill set. “Olivia played in the middle and on the right side. She was a difference maker, too.” Fauquier opened with a 25-9, 2510, 25-6 rout of Osbourn. Then came Western Albemarle, a 25-23, 25-10,

“Coming off a lengthy hiatus, I would say yes, they are back on track.” – COACH DIANA STORY

25-21 Falcon victim. Pool play concluded with a successful 25-18, 25-13, 27-29 battle over Franklin County. The three victories set up a semifinal bout against host Albemarle. The Patriots took a 25-19, 25-18 decision. “We came out flat after lunch, and they took advantage of it. If Kayla had been there, we would have beaten them. I can say that for sure,” said Story, noting the Patriots’ top outside hitter was a thorn in both sets. The Falcons won a rematch with Franklin County 25-14, 25-21 for

third place. The day reaffirmed the coach’s belief her 13-girl roster is deep in talent. “It was a great day. We played a lot of good volleyball, and it was fun,” Story said. Story also sees continued recovery from Fauquier’s Aug. 22 threeset “debacle” against five-time defending state champion Loudoun County. Fauquier rebounded with a four-set victory over a good Patriot unit before entering an 11-day layoff before the tournament. Fauquier hosts Liberty on Thursday. Freshman and junior varsity action commences at 6 p.m., varsity at 7. Liberty had defending district titlist Millbrook coming to Bealeton Tuesday.

0-3 Falcons hope bye week is the answer By Peter Brewington and Jeff Malmgren Times Staff Writers

The Fauquier Falcons’ 0-3 start is resulting in some worrisome research. The six previous times the Falcons opened 0-3, they finished no better than 3-6-1. After losing to Heritage 21-14 last week, Fauquier has a bye week to prepare for a breakthrough victory. With Hurricane Florence headed north, FHS coach Joe Prince quipped, “We have to learn how to either swim or learn how to boat. No, but we’re going to work on getting better and try-

ing to cut out mental mistakes.” Quarterback J.T. Diehl and receiver Shane O’Hara were both cleared to practice Monday after missing last week with injuries. “So that was good,” Prince said. “We should be back to 100 percent.” The Falcons next play Millbrook on Sept. 21. “With just a little luck we could be 2-1 right now,” Prince said. “I’m disappointed. ... But we’re getting better.” The Falcons have lost each of their past two games by only seven points, falling to Dominion 21-14 this past week.

In its 55-year football history, Fauquier has started 0-3 seven times.

Kettle Run dominating rain-soaked golf season Sept. 18 district tourney in limbo By Jeff Malmgren Times Staff Writer

The Kettle Run Cougars began this week having not practiced in 10 days due to persistent rain. And now Hurricane Florence threatens to further soak area golf courses. So even the Sept. 18 Class 4 Northwestern District tournament may face postponement at Fauquier Springs Country Club. “I’m not sure what’s going to happen,” Kettle Run coach Dale Edwards said. “We’re praying [Fauquier Springs] doesn’t flood again. We’ve had five floods already” this season.

The Cougars last played Aug. 30, winning a nine-hole match at Shenandoah Golf Club, and Edwards expected their two matches this week to be canceled. “This year’s been crazy,” he said. Kettle Run, at least, will face less pressure than teams such as Fauquier at Liberty during the district tournament because the Cougars already earned a region berth by winning the regular season district championship. They clinched Aug. 13 by winning the district’s third mini tournament. “We’re comfortable because we’re already in,” said Edwards, whose team hadn’t won a district-level regular season title since 2015. “They’re not going to be as worried. “But it’s going to be interesting to see how all the kids do from the county,” he said. “Hoping Fauquier and Lib-

Hurricane Florence causes Eagles, Cougars to bump games to Thursday By Peter Brewington and Jeff Malmgren Times Staff Writers

A trip to Culpeper was supposed to get the Liberty Eagles back on track. Instead, it has their season slightly off the rails at 1-2. After losing 21-13, the Eagles next host Chancellor (1-2) on Thursday at 7 p.m. in a game moved up due to Hurricane Florence. “Get ready as we usually do,” Eagles coach Sean Finnerty said, “just a day soon.” “We have to be disciplined with our assignments,” Finnerty added. “We have to get tougher mentally and physically.” Culpeper (1-2) hurt Liberty with a balanced attack and now the Eagles brace for Chancellor’s triple option. Finnerty said his team lacked energy in losing to the Blue Devils for the first time since 2002.

Cougars brace for Homecoming

Kettle Run also moved its game up a day and will host Culpeper Thursday at 7 p.m. in its Homecoming game. The Cougars mauled Brentsville, 37-6, last week in moving to the fourth 2-0 start in school history. Kettle Run has outscored Brentsville


STARS OF THE WEEK Liberty: Justin Lawson had rushing touchdowns of 76 and 25 yards in the 21-13 loss to Culpeper. Fauquier: DeAndre Chavis had 98 yards and one touchdown on 19 carries in 21-14 loss to Heritage. Liberty: Gabe Chumley had 138 yards and one touchdown on 10-for-14 passing as well as 55 yards on six carries, while Ridge Scott had 37 yards and two touchdowns on four carries in 37-6 win over Brentsville.

Levi Carver and the Cougars enter Thursday’s Homecoming flying high at 2-0. and Warren County 72-13. “We’re settling into all three phases of the game,” Cougars coach Charlie Porterfield said, “and we’re pruning some of the things … that we don’t need or use so we can play at a fast pace. “We’ve been lucky and remained relatively healthy,” Porterfield said. Culpeper, meanwhile, entered

this week with confidence after defeating Liberty to end an 11-game losing streak against the Eagles. “They’re coming off of a huge program-win and I think they feel pretty good about their team,” Porterfield said. “I think it will be a pretty good test for us. “They’re pretty big up front and super athletic,” he said.

Hot weather, hot start for 4-1 Cougars By Fred Hodge

Special to the Times

Kettle Run’s first field hockey loss of the season came to Class 6 powerhouse Patriot, 2-0. The Cougars (4-1) registered a 5-1 advantage in penalty corners, but came away scoreless. “We just didn’t capitalize,” said coach Beth Todd said. “It’s been a consistent problem. It’s been gradually improving, but it’s going to take more time.” Kettle Run battled the heat in a 1-0 home win over Freedom the previous day to win its fourth in a row as Anna Lee worked her way through the Eagle defense to fire a shot. Maddy Woods converted the rebound for the goal. Todd said the heat has been a factor. She cited fatigue as a probable reason Patriot es-

tablished control in the latter portion of the first half and most of the second. “I would say it’s been a hard week for every team out playing. We had a hard time after playing in the heat last night,” Todd said. “But we condition in the heat so we can come out here a do this.” Despite still lamenting the lack of scoring, Todd admitted her young team has exceeded some of her early expectations. The four wins is just two shy of the six recorded last fall, and two thirds of the games remain. She pointed to a pair of factors for the good start. “A lot of them played in the offseason ... so when they come here, they are ready to go,” Todd praised. “In years past we haven’t had people take advantage of that opportunity.” PHOTO BY RANDY LITZINGER The Kettle Run and Patriot JV teams Anna Lee set up Kettle Run’s winning goal in a 1-0 win over Freedom. fought to a 0-0 draw.

‘We were so in it to win it’ Down a set, Cougars storm back for clutch volleyball win vs. Woodgrove By Fred Hodge

Special to the Times

Tenacious, unbreakable, determined. Kettle Run fought back to beat Woodgrove 22-25, 25-17, 25-17, 2725 last Thursday, pleasing coach

Janelle Sutliff, who saw a noticeable toughness in her volleyball squad after losing the first game. “We didn’t do that in the past,” Sutliff said. “We were likely to collapse.” Kettle Run led 20-13 when the Wolverines unleashed two prolonged service strings to claim the opening set, 25-22. Kettle Run’s resolve stiffened with 25-17 victories in the second and third sets. Kettle Run led 8-1 in the fourth before Woodgrove rallied

for a 24-22 lead. But Kettle Run refused to die, tying it at 25-25 before Mae Sutliff served two consecutive aces for a 27-25 win and the match. “It’s definitely the hardest time to serve in my opinion,” said Mae Sutliff, who cut loose with two powerful offerings and finished with 19 service points. “Not just get ball over the net. It was get the best serve it can be,” she recalled, crediting assistant coach Mike Howard for calling the service location. Mae Sutliff finished with 10 aces to go with four from Olivia Conte (seven points) and three by Erin

Salzman (six points). Nicole Piercy served 10 points, Chelsea Dodson eight and Katie Pohlmann seven. Sutliff handed out 15 assists and Lily McIntyre added seven, as the winners unleashed a broad and potent service game. “We have to serve better to keep other teams out of their offense,” Janelle Sutliff stressed. “We can’t out power people, but we can play smarter. We have to be patient. We are playing for long rallies,” she added. Kettle Run also received solid production up front at key junctions, led by seniors Meghan Meador and Piercy.

Four Virginia riders headed to World Equestrian Games Gordonsville’s Will Coleman is late sub By Betsy Burke Parker Special to the Times

Even as Hurricane Florence bears down on the Tryon International Equestrian Center from the south, a powerful force from horse country is storming in to the North Carolina facility from Northern Virginia’s Piedmont region to represent the U.S. in what’s being hailed as the horse Olympics. Spread over two weeks from Sept. 11-23, the World Equestrian Games are the championship finals for eight international horse disciplines, including show jumping, carriage driving, dressage, three-day eventing, reining, vaulting, endurance and para-dressage. Reining and vaulting will be held in TIEC’s vast new indoor stadium, with all dressage and show jumping contested on all-weather footing in open, but well-draining show arenas. Three events could be negatively affected by predicted heavy rain, though Wednesday’s 100-mile endurance test should be complete before the storm makes landfall.

STAND UP FOR YOUR PROPERTY RIGHTS YOUR PROPERTY RIGHTS ARE IN DANGER Fauquier County government officials are at it again in a supposedly agricultural friendly community!

First it was Martha Boneta with her farm in Paris, Virginia. Now they are moving on to other farmers in the county and requiring an agricultural affidavits for pastures. Seeing livestock in pastures isn’t enough for this county. On August 16, 2018, the planning commission recommended approval for a text amendment to the zoning ordinance that would RESTRICT us to bring in from off-site or from other farms the amount of manure and/or bio-solids needed to fertilize fields and/or soil to build a farm or to level out existing fields to increase crop area which would increase yield and have better manageable fields to cut hay, nor make it easier to plant and harvest or for livestock to get around easier. This would also not allow us to fill in old livestock ponds no longer needed to make a better more productive use of that area which up until now we had a by-right use of our land to do with what we saw fit and suited us. Now the county wants to step in and regulate what we can do with our own property which as previously stated, is a by-right use and take that away from us and require stormwater management plans and engineered erosion and sediment control plans. What is going to be next? How many rows of corn you can grow in one year? How many yards of sod you can harvest in one year? Or how many cattle you

can raise in one year on your property? This is not good for any of us as this will be used as a stepping stone to take more of our by-rights away and constrict us to what they feel is fit for our own property.

Please let’s make our voices heard to the Board of Supervisors at their meeting on September 13, 2018, at 6:30 pm at the Warren Green Building, 10 Hotel Street, Warrenton, Virginia. You can call them at their office at 540422-8020 or email them:

Bill and Bette Hine, Joan Anthony and Jane Steinard are Cuddlers in Fauquier Hospital’s Intensive Care Nursery.

Fauquier Hospital ‘Cuddlers’ give the gift of touch By Robin Earl

Special to the Times

The opioid crisis is a monumental problem. According to the U.S. Department of Human Services, 11.5 million people in the United States misused prescription drugs in 2016. Every day, 116 people (a total of 42,249) died that year from opioid-related drug overdoses. In 2015, Fauquier Hospital saw six babies in its Intensive Care Nursery who were born withdrawing from opioids. In 2016, the number of babies diagnosed with neonatal abstinence syndrome jumped to 19. Since January, a team of Fauquier Health volunteers has been focused on helping the tiny victims of this big problem. The Cuddlers, a four-person subset of Fauquier Health’s volunteer force, provide warmth and security for infants who are born with NAS. Cheryl Poelma, director of the ICN, said babies born with NAS can be very sick during their first month because they are withdrawing from opioids. “After they are born, they are given medication to help with their withdrawal symptoms. The medication is slowly weaned as the infant

improves. Withdrawing can make the infant uncomfortable and irritable. Reducing stimulation and promoting a quiet environment helps these infants recover,” Poelma said. “Holding and cuddling these infants also helps in their recovery.” Research from the American Academy of Pediatrics states that for NAS babies, “Swaddling lessens stimulation, decreases crying times and promotes sleep that is more sustained… Holding, cuddling and manual rocking also can help.” Deb Clinard, from Fauquier Health’s Volunteer Services, said it takes an exceptional person to provide this service. “Cuddlers are required to stay almost completely still for two or more hours, holding an agitated newborn,” she said. “They have to be able to turn off their emotions while they are working with the babies, and just provide consistent, gentle touch therapy.” Clinard added that Cuddlers are carefully trained and monitored by the ICN nurses. Cuddlers don’t feed the infants or change diapers. Their job is to hold the babies when their parents or the ICN nurses can’t. Cuddler Joan Anthony remembered

having trouble soothing one newborn. “He was so upset. He had kicked his little legs and arms out of the swaddling and I couldn’t get them back in. One of the nurses showed me how to get him bundled back in and how to hold him closer. I have learned a lot since we began,” she said. “I am more relaxed now. Our nurses are so good to us, so appreciative of our help.” Cuddlers are called on as-needed and work for two-hour shifts. “Once the baby is placed in our lap, we can’t stand or stretch. Sometimes, when the two hours are up, we will wait until a nurse is free; it means that sometimes we are in that one position for close to three hours.” Cuddler Jane Steinard said. “My stamina has improved a lot since January.” Cuddler Bette Hine added, “Early on, I couldn’t do it for three hours straight; now I can. You have to hold them very close. As the baby starts to wean off the drugs, and you get more experience with that baby, you see when they are ready to sit up a little.” Steinard agreed, “As they move through the progression of drugs, the infants get more comfortable, they can handle a little more. We are care-

Building a sound foundation

Haymarket mom launches national nonprofit for rare hip disorder By John Hagarty

Contributing Writer

It was Halloween 2016. Colleen and Drew Rathgeber were taking their three children on a neighborhood candy walk. After “tricking” out five houses, their middle child, 3-year-old Kaelan, complained of an aching left leg and had to return home. What should have been a fun evening for the young lass turned into an alarming ordeal for her parents. Within a few months, the girl would

be diagnosed with a rare hip disorder known as Legg Calve Perthes. Named after three surgeons who discovered the disorder, it is commonly known as Perthes and primarily strikes children. When it affects adults, it’s vascular necrosis. To envision its impact on a youngster’s life, think of any adult who suffers from a degenerative hip disease. Debilitating. Painful. And a loss of lifestyle for those afflicted. But snatching joy from a youngster’s life is partic-

ularly difficult to deal with, especially if they become wheelchair-bound. “It was rare for a 3-year-old not be able to go further than a few nearby houses on Halloween. We took her to the doctor who diagnosed the problem as a virus affecting her joints,” said Colleen Rathgeber. “They said it would clear up in two weeks.” Indeed, the problem faded until the Christmas holidays a few months See FOUNDATION, Page 20

ful not to rock them and talk to them at the same time. And we can’t have any fragrance on us. They can’t deal with more than one sense at a time.” Clinard said that would-be Cuddlers must volunteer in other parts of the hospital for six months before they can be considered for the Cuddler program. “I need to get to know them first, to make sure they have the patience, reliability and temperament for such a delicate job. I look for someone who is relaxed and can work as part of a team, someone who can take things in stride and has a very flexible schedule,” she said. Clinard has seven Cuddler hopefuls ready to be trained and would like to eventually have 20 on the team. “Sometimes we know when we will be getting a baby in who needs cuddling, and sometimes there are walkins,” she said. “I’d like to have a robust group to support our ICN nurses and the parents of these fragile newborns.” Robin Earl is the public relations specialist for Fauquier Health.

Building a sound foundation: Haymarket mom launches national nonprofit for rare hip disorder FOUNDATION, from Page 19 later. Kaelan began limping again and displaying considerable pain with everyday movements. While attending a neighborhood Super Bowl party in February 2017, one of their friends pointed out the child’s limp appeared to be more pronounced than ever. After extensive blood tests by their pediatrician and X-rays from an orthopedic surgeon, the parents were assured their daughter was fine and would shake the limp over time. Yet one month later, Kaelan was sent home by her gymnastics teacher because of the painful leg. “When she walked into the house her leg looked like it was detached from her body. She was dragging it behind her,” Colleen Rathgeber said. “It was scary and traumatizing and we immediately took her to the pediatrician again.” “After a full examination, the doctor said it was either cancer or a rare bone disease that he had not seen in his 24 years of practice. He tended to rule out cancer since her white blood count was normal,” said Rathgeber. The parents scheduled an appointment with a specialist at Inova Children’s Hospital in Fairfax. “The doctor walked in with the original film in his hand and said, ‘It’s right there on the X-ray.’” She had Perthes.

Birth of foundation

Roughly five in 100,000 have Perthes, which most often strikes children between the ages of 4 and 8.

Colleen Rathgeber with her daughter Kaelan, 5, who, while not wheelchair bound, will use one for extended day trips or when hip pain dictates. It is more common in boys. It evolves slowly as the blood supply to the affected hip is interrupted causing the femoral head, or hip ball, to ultimately fragment away. If the hip receives constant high impact during the youthful stage it can alter its shape and lead to ongoing pain in adults. Rathgeber began to research the disease in an effort to have Kaelan enrolled in a study group. Her singular most important contact was Dr. Harry Kim with the Scottish Rite Hospital for Children in Dallas, Texas. Kim specialized in the disease and had formed a study group tar-

geted at 6- to 8-year-olds. “The doctor said he had been working with Perthes for 25 years and couldn’t understand why there was no foundation to support research and awareness of the condition,” Rathgeber said. “The more I thought about that, the more I could not shake the idea there was no single point of reference for parents seeking to better understand the disease and help treat their children.” The working mom and mother of three – sons Kade, 8, and Bode, 3, round out the family – seemingly had little time to build and launch such a foundation. But never underestimate the power of a mother’s love. With the decision to move forward, Rathgeber applied for a 501(c) (3) nonprofit status. She was required to form a board of directors and asked a friend, Shelley Crawford, who was studying for her physician assistant’s degree and Kim to serve on the board with her. They agreed. The Legg Calve Perthes Foundation was born. Her motivation to act accelerated when Kaelan, who turned 5 this week, was subsequently diagnosed as suffering from Perthes in both hips. The child is not wheelchair-bound but does require the use of one on long day trips or whenever her hip pain dictates. Kim also pointed out there was no event that enabled parents to meet annually and discuss their children’s conditions and receive updates on research. So Rathgeber planned and hosted, in concert with Kim, the first Perthes conference, which was held in Dallas in October 2017. The daylong event was attended by 25 parents from across the country with 15 surgeons and 10 hospital employees presenting insights into the disease and its research. “The parents felt they got more out of attending that conference than they had ever learned from their doctor or online. The disease affects the entire family, and it was amazing to see these parents sharing their stories and crying together. “They were all feeling similar pain, isolation and sadness because

Perthes robs their child of their childhood. Restrictions include no running or jumping, and it’s really hard to stop young kids from such activities,” said Rathgeber. The positive news is 70 percent of cases resolve themselves by the age of 10 when the femoral cap recovers its blood supply and regrows the hip ball. “But that requires parents to restrict their children’s activities. If the hip ball is constantly pounded, it will flatten the head and require surgery, which is very painful.”

Awareness and fundraising

Bringing her extensive business experience to bear, Rathgeber, who holds an MBA, sponsored a Perthes awareness event at a Washington Nationals ballgame in June. She, board members Crawford, and Dr. Benjamin Martin were recognized on the ballfield for their work. Locally, the town of Haymarket issued a town proclamation in support of her foundation in June and lit the town hall in blue lights in recognition of all those who suffer from the disease. The foundation has also been accepted into the National Organization of Rare Disorders. Acceptance resulted in two additional members joining the board, Drs. Wudbhav “Woody” N. Sankar and Jennifer Lane. Additionally, an honorary member of the board is actor and TV host Cameron Mathison who had Perthes as a child. Sankar believes the foundation provides a valuable role because of the limited information available on the disease. “The Perthes Foundation helps plug these gaps by providing invaluable support and networking opportunities. It has been amazing what Colleen has accomplished. She and the foundation have made a real difference in the lives of patients,” said Sankar. On Oct. 20, the Second Annual Perthes Family Conference will be held in Dallas, Texas.

Fresh from the farm food adds to school menus Fauquier’s FRESH program employs enthusiastic chef By Vicky Moon

Contributing Writer

“My grandma made wedding cakes and catered for friends and family – just for fun,” says Natalie Ortiz, the chef for FRESH (Fauquier Reaches for Excellence in School Health). “We always gathered around food, so I’ve always equated food with good times and love.” Virginia Farm to School Week will be held Oct. 1-5 to coincide with National Farm to School Month. The Fauquier County program includes introducing fresh and nutritious meal options for students for the duration of the school year. The FRESH program creates a culture of health and wellness for students, staff and is funded by the PATH Foundation. Students learn about the seasonality of food products and the importance of supporting local agriculture. Northern Virginia native Ortiz, 36, went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in culinary arts and hospitality management at Stratford University in Falls Church. “I wanted to take that degree and use it to enhance


Students have an opportunity to try new taste treats. FRESH assistants include (l-r) Dorothy Rose, Mary Lou Holczer and Bryant Jennings. people’s lives,” she said. Each month, there are one or two featured produce items incorporated into the Fauquier County schools lunch menu for grades K-12. They may be in the form of cooked items or raw fruit and vegetables. Ortiz works with the various schools’ nutrition departments and said, “At the end of each day, we’re able to have a positive impact on helping our students create healthy habits for life.” “As the FRESH chef, my work lies in training the cafeteria staff to properly utilize fresh produce,” said Ortiz, who developed and recently ran a halfday Farm to School training seminar at Airlie Farm and Conference Center near Warrenton, presented by the Virginia Cooperative Extension. “The relationship with Airlie Farm is brand new,” she said, adding that school nutrition experts are working directly with farm staff on

a pilot program to figure out the best way to efficiently grow the relationship. For this season, Ortiz has chosen three schools to receive the early crops that Airlie is donating. In addition to training staff on how to process produce items, Ortiz also works with local farmers to bring monthly fresh tastings to the schools. “Studies say that it takes upwards of 20 times of being exposed to a new food for children to try it,” she added. “Most people don’t realize that school food works to fight childhood hunger as well as food equity. If students are going to class hungry because their families are suffering from food insecurity, their brains and bodies are not prepared to process and retain the information and experiences their teachers and other school staff are providing.” Ortiz works with the school nutrition department’s lead cooks on how to clean, store, process and prepare

Annual 5K to benefit CAYA substance abuse prevention programs By Amanda Heincer Times Staff Writer

For many people dealing with substance abuse, and for their families, finding help is a challenge, said Moira Satre, founder of CAYA, Come As You Are, a coalition that aims to address that problem. “When I was dealing with my son’s addiction, I didn’t know where to find help,” Satre said. “And that’s the number one question I hear from people… you just don’t know where to go to get help and find help.” After Satre lost her 31-year-old son, Bobby, to a heroin overdose in April 2015, she decided she wanted to become part of the solution. CAYA, described on its website as “a coalition for anyone affected by substance abuse,” was founded in 2016. The coalition aims to connect people dealing with substance abuse – those who are addicted or recover-

ing and their families – with available treatments and support groups and to promote awareness and prevention programs. CAYA will hold its third annual 5K on Saturday, Sept. 22, to raise the needed funds to continue and expand its programs. The run begins at 9 a.m. at Verdun Adventure Bound, 17044 Adventure Bound Trail, Rixeyville. On-site registration begins at 7:30 a.m. “This is our major fundraiser of the year,” said Satre. “And it’s a really fun event.” The event also includes awards for top finishers, music, food, and

remarks by a guest speaker. “We always have a speaker with a hopeful message,” Satre said. “We always want to feature someone who is in recovery and who can give the message that… recovery is possible.” The list of programs that CAYA is involved in is long and growing, Satre said. CAYA is involved in offering Revive classes, to train people how to recognize and respond to opioid overdoses, in support groups such as FODA (Families Overcoming Drug Addiction) meetings held twice a month at Fauquier Hospital, in recovery coaching at the Warrenton Recovery Center and in various awareness and education campaigns. This summer, CAYA helped send teams from two area high schools, Highland School and Fauquier High School, to the Youth Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention Project at See CAYA, Page 23

the produce. They’re able to take the information back to either use themselves when cooking the hot meals or to convey to the team member who preps the fresh produce of salads, vegetables or fruit cups. When possible, produce is purchased from a local grower. Fauquier County schools purchase the majority of the fresh items from Produce Source Partners in the Richmond area through a bidding process. A “What’s FRESH” tasting cart rotates through three schools on a monthly basis. Students sample either raw produce or a cooked item. They then vote on whether or not they like the item, which gives an idea of how successful it will be. “We work with school nurses and cafeteria staff to be aware of student allergies,” Ortiz said. “Teachers and staff also sample the fresh items as a positive role model behavior. Master gardener and master food handler volunteers from the extension office programs volunteer to run the cart. They talk to students about how the produce is grown and help sample items.” Vicky Moon can be reached at

From politics to prose By Anita L. Sherman Community Editor

Harry F. Burroughs III has called Virginia home since 1965 when he and his family relocated here from Riverbend, New Jersey. With a degree in political science, he was destined to work in Washington. A visit to the U.S. Capitol and watching a legislative session piqued his interest in the legislative branch – how it worked and what could happen to make things better. He began his career in the U.S. House of Representatives in 1977. For nearly 40 years, he worked for several members of Congress, served as the Republican chief of staff of the House Merchant Marine and Fisheries Committee, and as the staff director of the Committee on Natural Resources Subcommittee on Fisheries, Wildlife and Oceans. Even before coming to Washington, at the young age of 8, Harry was handing out flyers for a relative who was running for public office. In 1969, as a high school student and member of the International Club at W.T. Woodson in Fairfax, he was instrumental in bringing a Model United Nations program to the student body. A lifelong Republican, Harry will happily admit to being a political animal.

FAUQUIER FOCUS “I love politics,” he says with a broad smile. But he shares another passion and that is writing. “For so many years on Capitol Hill I was writing briefs, reports and speeches. All for someone else,” says Burroughs, a fan favorite of Déjà Brew Coffee House on Main Street in Warrenton. Harry is a familiar face there. “I decided…why not write for myself?” chuckles Burroughs who has authored three books and is now working on another chronicling Fauquier County sheriffs since the 18th century. Speaking of sheriffs, Bob and Cindy Mosier were one of the first folks Harry and his wife, Gayle, met when they moved to Fauquier County more than 30 years ago. Cindy was a DARE officer at P.B. Smith Elementary where the Burroughs’s two sons, Rick and Chris, attended school. “I started following Bob’s career,”


Author Harry Burroughs is a familiar face at Deja Brew on Main Street in Warrenton. said Burroughs…when he was in Bosnia and Iraq…his work with human trafficking. In 1996, Mosier was selected by the U.S. Department of State to serve in Bosnia and Herzegovina with the International Police Task Force as a station commander where he represented the Fauquier County’s Sheriff’s Office. “Bob Mosier is one of the finest human beings I have ever met and having him as a friend is an honor,” said Burroughs who worked vigorously on Mosier’s campaign for sheriff in 2015. He intends to support him again. Burroughs will discuss his latest

book, “The People’s Sheriff,” at an upcoming book signing sponsored by the Fauquier Historical Society. In that book, he details not only his personal friendship with Bob Mosier but his professional support for him as an elected official. His other books, “My Life on Capitol Hill: Five Decades Working in the People’s House,” and “The National Wildlife Refuge System: History, Laws and Abuses of Power,” cover other facets of his career. Harry is a member of the Marshall Writing Group. “It’s a great group. We share information and we read and critique each other’s work,” said Burroughs, who is spending a good deal of time in Fauquier’s Public Library doing research for his next tome, which talks about Fauquier County’s legacy of sheriffs since 1759. Retired since 2015, when Harry isn’t talking politics, campaigning for a favorite candidate, researching and writing, he enjoys working on his golf game and traveling. “We’re going to Florida and we’ve got tickets to the Virginia State Fair,” laughs Burroughs who is super proud of their two sons and four grandchildren. If you’d like to learn more about Harry Burroughs, plan to attend his book signing this coming Saturday, Sept. 15, from 12-3 p.m. at the Fauquier Historical Society located at 10 Ashby St. in Warrenton. Books will be available for purchase and signing. Contact: 540-347-5525.

Annual 5K to benefit CAYA substance abuse prevention programs


CAYA, from Page 21 Longwood University. The coalition hopes to expand that program and send teams from each of the high schools in the future, Satre said. CAYA is also regularly involved in supporting other local programs and groups that help at-risk populations, Satre said. “We’re busy,” she said with a laugh. “We have a lot of stuff going on.” CAYA is also working to expand and improve its website to eventually offer a comprehensive list of resources, from support groups and treatment options to sober activities in the area, Satre said. “We want to help connect people to the support that is available,” Satre said. “We want to help our community to be a healthy place in any way we can,” she said. “There is no one path to recovery and we want to be able to help connect people to a variety of resources that might suit them, that might appeal to hem and that might help with their recovery.” For more information about CAYA, or to register for the 5K visit www. Registration is available online or can be submitted by mail to CAYA, P.O. Box 3457, Warrenton, VA 20188. Pre-registration by Sept. 13 is $25 and includes a goodie bag and T-Shirt.

David Goetz discusses ‘Ever the Gray Ghost: Colonel John Singleton Mosby and the Lincoln Conspiracy’ Fauquier County Public Library will host author David Goetz on Sunday, Sept. 16, at 2 p.m. at the John Barton Payne Bldg. in Warrenton. Goetz will discuss “Ever the Gray Ghost: Colonel John Singleton Mosby and the Lincoln Conspiracies,” which examines the background of individuals and groups from both sides of the Civil War who wanted to capture or kill confederate President Jefferson Davis and U.S. President Abraham Lincoln. The author will discuss in particular Colonel Mosby’s role in the conspiracies against Lincoln. “Ever the Gray Ghost: Colonel John Singleton Mosby and the Lincoln Conspiracies” is Goetz’s newest book.

Lord Fairfax Community College

Warrenton Resident Scrubs Her Nursing Plans for Surgical Technology By SALLY VOTH Lord Fairfax Community College

WARRENTON, VA – When she graduated from Battlefield High School in Haymarket in 2015, Warrenton resident Hollie Hurdle wasn’t sure what her next steps would be. She watched her friends go off to college, many with funding from their parents. Hurdle knew whatever she did, she had to do it herself. Like her older sister, she decided to enroll in Northern Virginia Community College, referred to as NOVA. Hurdle, 21, thought she’d go into the RN program at NOVA, knowing that nursing was a field with excellent job security, but wasn’t accepted into the program. At the time, she wasn’t aware of LFCC’s RN program, which is accredited through the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing. And, while Hurdle didn’t know about LFCC’s nursing program in time to apply, she did notice the surgical technology certificate program, and applied. She decided to go for it, figuring it would be a year before she could apply to the nursing program at LFCC. Hurdle was in the second

cohort of students taking surgical technology classes at LFCC’s Vint Hill site. Surgical technologists are part of the surgical team – they set up equipment and supplies needed during an operation, and pass instruments to the surgeon. According to Lisa Day, program instructor at Vint Hill, they can become educators or surgical assistants, and can work in hospitals, surgical offices, ambulatory care units or the military. Day is also the president of the Virginia State Assembly of the Association of Surgical Technologists. LFCC’s surgical technology program started at the college’s Middletown Campus in 2004. The three-semester program includes classes in anatomy and physiology, medical terminology, fundamentals of surgical care, surgical pharmacology and microbiology. Students must graduate from an accredited surgical technology program in order to take the national certification exam to become a certified surgical technologist. “I was kind of intimidated when I first started my surgical technology classes,” Hurdle says. “Lisa told us we’d have to know all of the instruments by

the end of the first week. To my surprise, I did know all of them by the end of that week. That’s when I realized I was capable of doing something I didn’t even realize I could do.” All of the surgical technologists-in-training must participate in at least 120 surgical cases in order to graduate from the program. Hurdle did most of her cases at Reston Hospital Center, a Level II trauma center, meaning it can provide the start of care for all types of patients. She also got a job in the hospital’s sterile processing department. Shortly after graduating from the surgical technology program in late July, Hurdle started her new job at Reston Hospital Center, “People are really nice and very helpful at the hospital,” she says. “It’s very busy, but it’s a very rewarding feeling after a case is finished.” Day and instructor JaLynda Buckingham were “so nice,” according to Hurdle. “Lisa shares her reallife experiences as a surgical technologist and surgical first assist,” she says. “It’s not like she’s just reading out of a textbook. We’re not going into the operating room textbook-

smart. We’re going in there real-life smart. “Lisa and JaLynda always looked out for us. Knowing they were there behind me made me less nervous during clinicals. It’s like having another mom.” Hurdle, who plans to finish her associate degree through NOVA this fall and may later earn a bachelor’s degree in nursing, community health or medical management, says she recommends LFCC’s surgical technology program to “everybody.” “I give out Lisa Day’s business cards like candy

LFCC Cybersecurity Experts Take Part in StateWide Conference By SALLY VOTH Lord Fairfax Community College

MIDDLETOWN, VA – Cybersecurity program manager Professor Henry Coffman and several LFCC colleagues presented at a recent statewide cybersecurity educational conference. Coffman, Computer Science Professor Melissa Stange, Associate Professor of IT Darrell Andrews and Workforce Solutions program manager Samantha Brill attended the inaugural Virginia Cybersecurity Education Conference at James Madison University in midAugust. The Virginia Cyber Range Office, which is located at Virginia Tech, managed the conference. The conference attracted nearly 200 attendees, which included representatives from cybersecurity firms and students who competed in a Capturethe-Flag competition. Virginia

Secretary of Education Atif Qarni served as the keynote speaker. “The purpose of the conference was to allow educators and our partners in government and industry to learn about cybersecurity efforts underway around the commonwealth,” says Coffman. “High school teachers were awarded scholarships to the conference so they could learn all that is happening in this critical field at the K-12, community college and fouryear university levels, and take that back to their classrooms. Students learned how to incorporate creative thinking and teamwork in competition maneuvers, while establishing contacts with potential future employers.” Coffman represents Lord Fairfax on the Virginia Cyber Range Executive Committee, and Stange is an alternate member of the executive

committee, which meets on a monthly basis to discuss strategic direction of the Cyber Range, as well as cybersecurity needs and opportunities throughout the state. LFCC has a seat at the table thanks to its designation as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense. The designation – awarded by the U.S. National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security – was bestowed in 2015. “I was there to share the great things LFCC is doing in cybersecurity and computer science when it comes to producing graduates who are successful when they leave the college,” Stange says. “The most exciting part for me was learning what others are doing and finding new ideas and techniques to bring back to LFCC to make our classes even better.” Lord Fairfax offers

all the time,” she laughs. “I think the program taught me more than just how to be a surgical technologist. I feel like it’s also helped me learn time management and how to prioritize.” As of May 2017, the average salary of a surgical technologist in Virginia was $51,450, according to data from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The escalating deer population means trouble for local landscapes. While they look harmless enough, deer devour plants, foliage and shrubs, leaving gardens barren.

Reducing deer damage to your landscape is now possible. Bartlett Tree Experts has an effective deer repellent program that can be customized specifically for your property. Extensive research conducted by scientists at our 350-acre Lab means we use only the most effective products, which pose no risk to people, pets or the deer. While deer feed all year long, they cause the heaviest damage to shrubs and trees during the winter. That is why it is important to take advantage of this valuable service now. Treatments applied in fall will help repel deer from plants before they develop feeding patterns and before their browsing becomes damaging. For more information on deer repellent programs, or any of the tree and shrub care services we provide, please call us at (540) 364-2401 Remember, this service is most effective when performed in late fall/early winter, so please contact us today! or 1-877-Bartlett.

auditorium for live entertainment, such as musical performances, plays, movies, dance recitals and comedy shows. There will also be an art gallery for paintings, photography and sculpture, with submissions from both local and out-of-town artists. When not in use as a performance venue, the space will be available for a small fee to community and business groups for such events as meetings and workshops. The mission of the Center for the Arts is to enrich the quality of life in Fauquier County by encouraging the creation, joy, and understanding of artistic expression. What a great mission to have! Shelf Life at 52 Main St. is known for its “functional furnishings.” Often the store puts many delightful items on the sidewalk for sale. One humorous sign caught my attention. It read: “A recent study has found that women who carry a little extra weight live longer that the men who mention it.” The sign brought to mind that Weight Watchers holds weekly meetings at 65 Main St. Meeting

times are Wednesdays at 10 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. and Saturdays at 8:30 a.m. and 10 a.m. Both men and women are welcomed as long as the men don’t mention the little extra weight as indicated in the Shelf Life sign. A new nail salon, Tip Toes, has just opened at 92 Main St., # 201-4. Owner Christen Miller is experiencing her life’s dream and her salon is open Tuesdays through Fridays. You may make appointments by calling 540-229-7872. Talented local artist Dorothy Smith is putting the final touches on her LOVE sculpture which will be unveiled by the park in front of the Greenway and Claire’s on Thursday, Sept. 13, at 5:30 p.m. It will be a great addition to the art environment! Meet local author Dave Goetz on Sunday, Sept. 16, at 2 p.m. at the John Barton Payne Building, where he will discuss his latest book, “Ever the Gray Ghost: Colonel John Singleton Mosby and the Lincoln Conspiracies.” The book will be available for purchase after the program.

Remember, smoke alarms save lives It seems that time is moving at a rapid pace or perhaps that is because as we grow older and move more slowly, we do not accomplish things as fast as we once did.

In preparation for that, every fire station in Fauquier County and the Fauquier County Fire Marshal’s Office will be implementing a smoke alarm installation program. County residents who do not currently have working smoke detectors can email smoke alarm@ or call 540-4228800 to request smoke alarms for their home. Fire and rescue station person-

Patrick Dennis Debrow Patrick Dennis Debrow, age 77, of Marshall, VA died on Thursday, September 6, 2018. Patrick was born on December 5, 1940 in Foxworth, MS to the Joseph W. and Margie Dell Leonard Debrow, and was raised in Hattiesburg, MS with his four younger siblings: sister Jimmie Fay, twin sisters Georgia Jayne and Virginia Layne, and brother Richard. The house on Pack Avenue was filled with love and often a dishpan of banana pudding, Patrick’s favorite. Patrick joined the Mississippi National Guard as a teenager and after high school (Hattiesburg H.S., Class of 1958), served in the US Army, stationed in Germany. Patrick attended the University of Southern Mississippi, obtaining BS and MS degrees in Physics and English Literature, and spent time working on oil rigs and surveying in the Middle East and South East Asia. Patrick moved to the Washington, DC area and served in the Directorate of Operations in the Central Intelligence Agency for 24 years. Patrick was stationed in Okinawa, Japan and Moscow, Russia, then settled in Vienna, VA. Patrick traveled all over the world for work, always bringing local dolls back to his two daughters, Melissa and Jennifer. Patrick loved a family road trip, traveling all across the US and up to Nova Scotia, Canada multiple times. Following retirement from the CIA, Patrick founded his own company, Cobbler, Inc., creating surveillance equipment for the government and law enforcement. As a friend of Bill W. since 1979, Patrick was deeply involved in the work of sobriety and recovery for himself and many friends. Patrick found peace and serenity on Big Cobbler Mountain, where he designed and built his log mountain home, Valeview. Since 1994, Patrick and his wife Sharon have enjoyed the beautiful views and many friends in Fauquier County. Patrick loved riding his tractor in overalls and keeping his dogs (Lucy and Snoopy, and the late Happy and Phoebe) safe from bears. Although living far from Mississippi, Patrick always found time to go back to visit family and friends in and around Hattiesburg. Over the past decade, Patrick researched his family genealogy across the South, meeting new family online and in person. Patrick is survived by his beloved wife of 34 years, Sharon Diedrich, daughters Melissa Debrow of Herndon, VA and Jennifer Debrow (Edwin van der Hoek) of Minneapolis, MN, stepson Paul Kerlin of Linden, VA and stepdaughter Lori Kerlin of Ruther Glen, VA, and treasured grandchildren Noah, Joshua, Katie, Nathan, Shawn and Evelyn.
