LOCAL NEWS Vandals strike Culpeper location of Pregnancy Centers of Central Virginia Friday ➤ Windows broken, graffiti sprayed on signs, center vows to go on By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer The Pregnancy Centers of Central Virginia in Culpeper was vandalized early Friday morning. Culpeper Town Police are investigating the vandalism, which included signs being spray painted over with phrases such as “fake,” “you hate women,” and other vulgarity. A front window was broke out as well. Patient Advocate Coordinator Lindy Dimeo said this is the first time in the 20 years the Culpeper Pregnancy Center has operated that something like this has happened. “I think it’s connected to what’s going on in our country,” Dimeo said Friday morning, standing near broken glass that littered the front office. She said that she received word on social media early Friday morning, and that someone had called in the incident to the Culpeper Police Department around 3:30 a.m. Friday morning. She said staff had been at the center until 7 p.m. Thursday evening, so it happened sometime within that time frame. The Culpeper Pregnancy Center is one of four pregnancy centers of Central Virginia - including two in Charlottesville and one in Orange. The non-profit centers provide free services for anyone that is pregnant including ultrasounds, preg-

nancy tests and materials (diapers, supplies, cribs) for children up to two years old. The center has a doctor on staff who provides medical information and they are Hippa and OSHA certified. “We don’t tell people what to do, we just give them information,” Dimeo said. Friday’s actions left Dimeo shocked and saddened because the Pregnancy Center has always had community support. “"I'm not angry at anyone that did this, I'm sad for them," Dimeo said. "I'd invite them to come and talk with us and see what we do." She said that the Pregnancy Center operates entirely through donations and receives no government funding of any kind. “This costs money,” she said, motioning at the damage. “These signs are very expensive.” She said that the center hadn’t seen any suspicious activity leading up to Friday’s vandalism. She said she’s already received countless calls of support and volunteers were on their way Friday morning with a pressure washer to take down the graffitti. “This isn’t going to stop us,” Dimeo said. Dimeo said the center is part of Healthy Culpeper and she serves on the teen coalition and works with social services. “We work with any agency that wants to better the community,” Dimeo said. The Pregnancy Center is open Monday through Thursday, “it’s a good thing we were closed today,” Dimeo said.

The Pregnancy Center of Central Virginia Culpeper Patient Advocate Coordinator Lindy Dimeo stands beside some of the graffiti that was sprayed on the building in the early morning hours of Friday. She expected to open for business as usual on Monday. Dimeo stressed that the Pregnancy Center is a medical facility, including a doctor and a volunteer sonographer, “they’re saying we’re something that we’re not,” she said. In a statement released Tuesday, the The Pregnancy Centers of Central Virginia expressed sadness at the vandalism. “We do not know the intentions or exact motives of the individual(s) who acted out in aggression toward us,” the release said. “This act will not hinder us from continuing to provide outstanding medical services and support to the women and families of Culpeper and all the surrounding communities we serve. “Our organization has embraced the Culpeper community for over

20 years, and we know they embrace us as was apparent by the many visits, calls and offers to help us clean up and re-open. We are so grateful for this outpouring of support.” Culpeper Town Police said the investigation is ongoing. “We encourage anyone who may have been in the area or noticed anything suspicious last night to reach out to our detectives to assist with bringing the person(s) responsible for this crime to justice,” said CPD Chief Chris Jenkins. Anyone with additional information is asked to call Detective Curtis Pittman at 540-829-5508. Callers can also remain anonymous by calling Culpeper Crime Solvers at 540-727-0300.

BOS approves pursuit of grant for bell towner Where have the bells gone? It’s a question many Culpeper residents have asked as the courthouse bells haven’t sounded in six months. It’s part of a larger issue with the clock at the Culpeper County Courthouse and on Tuesday the Culpeper County Board of Supervisors voted 6-0 to authorize a grant application to the National Park Service Department for renovations to the bell tower. Laura Loveday, Special Projects and Grants Administrator for Culpeper County, explained that the grant request is under development but will not exceed $200,00 with a maximum local match of $20,000 from previously budgeted items. The tower was built in 1874 and the bell and clock was installed in 1890 for $750 by the E.C. Howard Clock Company. The clock was electrified in the 1950s and has had issues over the years - including the latest where the arm for the bell strike stopped working. Paul Howard, Director of Environmental Services for Culpeper County, said there was a proposal to refurbish the clock before the grant was discovered. Loveday said the grant was established on Dec. 20, 2018, two days before the government shutdown. Since then, she said, it’s been difficult to reach the National Park Service to garner more information. The original deadline to submit an application was March 1 but it has recently been pushed back to April 1. Howard said that years of use has caused build up on the clock, including the use of oil to grease the device when a graphite should have been used instead. The original estimate to refurbish the clock was $38,500. Howard said there is $50,000 budgeted for courthouse renovations, that could be used toward refurbishing the clock. That would not be needed if the county received the grant. “It’s an unusual grant,” Howard said. Catalpa Supervisor Sue Hansohn supported the grant, but wondered if they went back to the original design of the clock would they have to have someone change the weights for the bell every week. Howard explained that they could make it automated so that wouldn’t


Culpeper Youth (Editor's note: This is weekly series highlighting members of Culpeper's Youth Council. To join Culpeper Youth, go to to apply.) Culpeper Youth has always been lead by the Youth. This is the best part. We’re different from different organizations in that sense, instead of asking the youth what they want, we simply are the youth. It’s incredible and we are a family. The set up of our organization has allowed us to grow into what we are now because of it. We wrote our own bylaws ( in which there were numerous drafts), we went through a complete strategic planning course and we’ve planned a few events. We make mistakes together, we fail together but we triumph together as well and it is so much more powerful because we did it. As our mission statement states, “Culpeper Youth creates an inclusive and empowered environment where youth works to help the community and is free to express their ideas and opinions. Through our work, we learn leadership, business skills and develop personally and professionally. We create change for youth today and become the leaders of tomorrow.” which is precisely what has occurred. Through our work, over these past two years, we have learned leadership skills as well as business skills. I also know that through Culpeper Youth I have grown professionally and personally. As the current and first President of Culpeper Youth and the Youth Advisory Council, I am incredibly proud to have been at the helm of this organization where the youth is free to express their ideas and opinions. Culpeper Youth, where the Youth today become the Leaders of tomorrow.

happen. Loveday said the grant has $5 million available throughout the country with the stated goal to rehabilitate historic properties. The other point of discussion is whether this would make it harder for the Town’s Architectural Review Board to allow future changes to the courthouse tower if needed. Loveday said it could add an extra layer but not set further restrictions for the town’s ARB. The supervisors approved pursuing the grant by a 6-0 vote. Cedar Mountain supervisor Jack Frazier was absent. In other business: The county heard from VDOT Warrenton REsidency Administrator Mark Nesbit that a proposed roundabout in the town of Culpeper at the intersection of Route 3 and McDevitt Drive was one of four projects in the Culpeper District that met Smart Scale qualifications. The roundabout is estimated to cost $6.1 million and would relieve congestion in the area that sees approximately 11,00 vehicles per day according to town staff. The area is heavily used by Germanna Community College students and is the site of a proposed Career and Technical Education School for Culpeper County Public Schools. It would be the fourth roundabout in the town of Culpeper.

Open Door Baptist Church hosts Night to Shine prom By Amy Wagner For the Culpeper Times Excitement has been growing at Open Door Baptist Church for weeks as they prepare to host Night to Shine this Friday for the third year. With the church transformed into a prom venue, over one hundred people with special needs, ages fourteen and older, from the local area, are expected to attend and dance the night away. Launched in 2015, and sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation, forty-four churches hosted Night to Shine the first year. This year’s event is expected to be held at over 700 churches across the United States and the globe, all on the same night. Open Door Baptist chose to host Night to Shine again this year, teaming with Shooting Stars, a local non-profit organization affiliated with the National Down Syndrome Society. They are continuing to work together because of the importance of the event and the impact it has on people in the community with special needs. From limousines to red car-

pets, guests at this year’s prom can expect the royal treatment. Business Administrator at Open Door and chairwoman for the event, Michele Hitt, describes Night to Shine as her favorite event that the church hosts each year. “This is an opportunity to truly put feet on our faith,” she said of the event which runs from 6 – 9 p.m. Guests may arrive at the MinuteMan Minimall at 5:30 p.m. and ride limo-style over to the church or they may go directly to the church where paparazzi will greet them as they make their red-carpet entrance. Once inside, guests may pick out a boutonniere or corsage, get their prom picture taken, and have their makeup or hair professionally touched up; all before making another red-carpet entrance into prom. Hitt, who is organizing the event for the third year this Friday, recalls 104 guests last year and expects 125 this year. “It is a very emotional night. It’s just that much fun. They are at their prom and it’s just really a good feeling to know that you’ve made them feel good.

Special.” She credits the sixty-five volunteers, which include four photographers, a videographer and a Dee Jay, that will be present to assist them with whatever they need throughout the night for the night’s success. Wistful of years past, Hitt shared a memory from last year. “Pastor [Bernie Jernigan] got up before the end of the evening and presented a Gospel and reminded them how much God loves them. A little later a little gal came up to him, after he spoke, and quietly told him,

‘You know? I saw the angels all around when you were talking.’ Then she looked around and over each shoulder and said, ‘Jesus is here. He’s all around us.’” As the dancing ends and the evening comes to a close, each guest will be crowned prom king or queen and told how special they are. They will all receive a goodie bag as they head home. And, those prom photos? Each one will be framed while the guests dance the night away, placed in their goodie bags and serve as a reminder of how special they are.

Madison native James Tamelcoff prepares for his "Cash Unchained" show at Germanna Community College's Daniel Technology Center Feb. 2.

'The Man in Black' ➤ 2017 Madison High School graduate James Tamelcoff takes his portrayal of Johnny Cash nationwide By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer “Well, you wonder why I always dress in black…” It’s the opening line to Johnny Cash’s famous “Man in Black,” which lays out the iconic country singers entire mindset - it also explains some of the mystique of the man that Madison native James Tamelcoff pays tribute to. Tamelcoff performed his Cash Unchained tribute show at Germanna Community College’s Daniel Technology Center Feb. 2, coming back to Culpeper for the first time since 2016 when he unveiled the show at the now closed State Theatre. In those three years, the show has grown and flourished - he’s headlines the House of Blues in Chicago, played the House of Blues in New Orleans and Myrtle Beach and has toured extensively on the East Coast. It’s been a dream come true for Tamelcoff, performing the music of one of his idols. There may be other Cash tribute artists, but none as young and as experienced as Tamelcoff. At age 20, he’s already been playing professionally for 12 years. He played guitar with his father James Tamelcoff Jr. in Cashless Society and came to prominence during Culpeper Has Talent. He garnered a following playing 200-plus shows a year and now those local fans follow along on social media

as he posts his long list of triumphs. Coming back home last week was an opportunity to return to where it all started. “All the people that have been following along on social media being able to finally see the product that we’re presenting everywhere else,” Tamelcoff said. “Our mission was to bring that concert feel right here to Culpeper. This room is just a room, our plan was to change the atmosphere and give it that concert feel.” A full stage with multiple light changes and a stadium-like sound system greeted concert goers that were treated to Tamelcoff’s unique tribute concert. Cash Unchained takes listeners through the Sun Records era of Cash, into his duets with June (sang by Tamelcoff’s girlfriend Carlie Lambrich) through his work with the Highwaymen and ending with his collaboration with Rick Rubin on the American recordings. “It’s not easy because everyone is a one of a kind person, but I feel Johnny is a very special one of a kind person,” Tamelcoff said. “To be able to capture his essence and his presence and kind of be the middleman to portray that to people, it’s something I’ve worked really hard to study and improve on every day. We don’t try to impersonate Johnny in any way, we don’t take credit for his music, we’re here to pay tribute to the music and keep it alive for people to enjoy.” When Tamelcoff and the band started this at the State Theatre three years ago, he never dreamed it become this big. They sold out the Queen in Wilmington, Del. - their first Live Nation sell out - and ➤ See Tamelcoff, Page 7

➤ Tamelcoff, from Page 6 they will perform at the legendary Gramercy in New York City July 12. “It’s really cool to see people that I haven’t talked to but have known for a long time come out,” Tamelcoff said. “Music brings people together, what we’re doing here is something I never anticipated doing in the very beginning. It was supposed to be a one show and done at the State (Theatre) when we debuted it. It’s grown to be a national touring show, which I’m very proud of.” “Honestly, my goal was to do one a month, now can do up to 10 a month Sold out the Queen in Wilmington in Delaware, first Live Nation sell out, did Fillmore in Charlotte, performing at the Gramercy Theatre in New York City on July 12. “It’s all crazy,” Tamelcoff said. “I try to work as hard as I can and the way I look at it is if I can do it, anyone can do it. It’s something that I’ve done since I was 8 years old. To be able to take what I do on stage across the country is very special.” A 2017 Madison County High School graduate, Tamelcoff said that social media has played a role in their growth but that the biggest draw has been from people seeing the show and then bringing their friends and family. “I think with anything, word of mouth is the best,” Tamelcoff said. “I think you put 5-10 people in a room and the next time you double it.” On Saturday, more than 300 people turned out at the Daniel Technology Center to see their hometown singer croon the Cash hits. “The show we presented back at the State Theatre in 2016 is very different, it’s gotten so much better,” Tamelcoff said. “Everything across the board has gotten more professional, more polished.” His portrayal of the Man in Black has improved as well. “With as much rehearsal it takes to pull this off, once I put the black on I’m good,” Tamelcoff said. “Once I get my attire and appearance where it needs to be, I’m good. Once you step into that character, that’s where you need to be.” Growing up on 1950s music - Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly and of course Cash - Tamelcoff was drawn to paying tribute to Johnny because of his stature. “Johnny is one of the very few artists that has that timeless impact on music and on society as a whole,” Tamelcoff said.

He acknowledges those are big shoes to fill, and he is constantly humbled by the reality of the success that he’s encountered. “When we’re talking to the production team and they had Willie Nelson two weeks ago, or Guns ‘n Roses, it doesn’t set in for me until after the fact and I look back on it,” Tamelcoff said. “To be sharing that same stage with superstars is incredible.” In 2016, the band sold out the State Theatre and were leading the charge of a vibrant music scene in Culpeper. Since the State Theatre has closed, that scene hasn’t been as visible. Tamelcoff hopes that his success will show younger musicians there is an opportunity. “My goal with this is to bring live music and live entertainment (to the area),” Tamelcoff said. “There’s so much talent out here. I have a lot of friends that are the same age that are out here that are talented. With the State Theatre there was a goal, ‘hey, I want to work myself up to play that stage.’” On that stage is where Tamelcoff loves to be, and he gets to share it with his girlfriend Lambrich who portrays June in the show. She only started singing professionally last year and has to pinch herself when they are on these big stages performing. “It’s definitely unbelievable,” Lambrich said. “I wouldn’t have seen myself here even three years ago. I never sang before this, for him to even suggest (this) was crazy.” The loving relationship between June and Johnny is one of the classic love stories in country music - and Tamelcoff and Lambrich enjoy portraying it during the show. “We definitely bring it out on stage,” Lambrich said. “She was so dominant on stage, just so homey. When I get up there, I make sure I bring that presence to the stage. We just try to make it fun and go back and forth at each other. Lambrich isn’t the only loved one that Tamelcoff gets to share the state with, as his father James Jr. plays guitar and portrays Waylon Jennings during the Highwaymen segment of the show. “To be able to do something together, that’s the most fun - that we can do this for over 10 years now,” the older Tamelcoff said. For James, this stop in Culpeper is special but he’s always looking to take things to the next step. “I’m the type of person that I like to do everything 100 percent, so I want to take this to the highest possible level,” Tamelcoff said. “My dream place to play is Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado.”

HISTORY Sticks and stones, part four This will be the last of this series regarding the existence on racism in America and I would include in that other forms of prejudice against people of different religious faith, gender, education and economic status. Differences are normal and often to be celebrated, however, there is no place for them in determining who should receive privileges and who should be denied opportunity or worse yet be the brunt of oppression and hatred. Perhaps the most difficult challenge we face is changing attitudes. Attitudes that have for are generations been taught and engrained in our culture. Are those that hold those same attitudes today to be scorned, I think not.

ZANN’S PLACE Zann Nelson

Are we tasked with altering those inaccuracies and inequalities by seeking and documenting facts and truths long denied? My humble opinion is absolutely! With that thought in mind please read the last of the dialogue between me and Reader # 2. Zann: Does this mean you guys will not be supporting the resolution? If one has to err, I vote for erring on the side of truth and inclusion. I must say, I wish you had addressed some of the other questions I put forth, but maybe another time. Thank you. Reader # 2: Yea, that's like asking if I have stopped beating my wife. Ether answer indicts me - either you say I supported lynching in the past or I am an idiot for propagating idiocy here. But for clarity, no I do not support resolutions that address 100 year old issues that are no

longer relevant. I would support a resolution asking that black fathers take care of their kids and wives (70% unmarried households) and stop shooting each other and stay in school and get a job. THAT is today and the future for blacks. Note: the 70% statistic is based on 2010 data and is at face value accurate. However, it does not consider such data as unmarried but cohabitating households and whether or not children have a functional relationship with their fathers outside the household. Rates for High school graduation, employment, and incarceration vary widely by region and cannot be considered accurate without looking at the complete picture. Take a look at the dropout rate for Caucasians living in the most impoverished areas of the Appalachian region. Zann: OK, now I see where you are coming from. Thank you for clarifying. Stay warm.

Zann: I do have another question based on what you will not support. Do you think then that we do not need to be spending millions of dollars on monuments, battlefields, resolutions in support of warriors from any war that is 100 or more years old and over and done with? This is not a trick question; I am truly interested in your opinion. Reader # 2: I believe we should maintain a vigilant understanding of our history in all manifestations - in word and relics, both museum and other including battlefields and public displays. Today's kids are woefully under-informed, not only about American history but world history. The founders said we could only maintain a democracy (Democratic Republic) through good public education and knowledge. The Federalist papers discusses this.

About Deena and Bones… CALLY TALES

Deena is a “talker.” She can carry on a decent conversation with a human that both seem to understand. That’s how she “marketed” herself at the animal shelter when she was up for adoption. She didn’t do words exactly, but she used her voice in a sliding scale of sounds which answered human questions in some mysterious way. I consider myself semi-vocal. I have no problem letting my Widow know I am hungry or more than ready for a treat. I’m heavy into meowing and light on purring. My favorite word is “humph” which sometimes means, “I agree,” or more often, “Just do it.” But Deena takes it to a new level. It was her conversation at an open window that brought Boo into the house. And before Boo, she attracted Bones at the same window. Desperate for a home and food, Bones was a walking skeleton that might have blown away in a strong wind if she hadn’t been weighted down by a belly full of kittens near term. Her situation was desperate and heart-wrenching. Who could refuse such a spunky little mother? Bones was immediately adopted and given all she could eat. When the birthing finally began, five little gray balls of fur arrived, wiggling and hungry for their mama’s milk. Bones did her best, and so did her humans, but it wasn’t enough. Three fur balls survived, but two did not. When the three survivors were strong enough to be on their own, there were many potential adopters. Bones went into street-smart mode to make the best selections. Does she miss her babies? Of course she does. But she is a realist


and understands the limits of an overcrowded household. The good news is she is no longer a walking skeleton, but a ravishing beauty of gray and white and black. Although she still answers to Bones, it’s probably because she is too shy to speak up and risk offending her food suppliers. Bones is also a seasoned traveler. Along with Deena and Boo, she has spent many nights in motels and days in cars. Each of them has her own carrier and her own travel style. Mostly it’s sleep, yawn, and stretch on the road, but once they hit the motel and the carrier doors open, SHAZAM. Boo explores, Bones finds a dark place to hide, and Deena arches her back, scratches her ears, and takes a leisurely bath. In the morning, the cat carriers are lined up in the bathtub with the door ends up. At the count of three, one human grabs the closest cat, while the other pops open the door and assists with the stuffingin process. The very shy Bones is always last because she has to be pried out of some secret and dark place. Then it’s another day on the road and another night at a motel. Speaking for the trio, Deena wants the world to know that traveling with cats is a breeze compared to traveling with children. The three main advantages she mentions are no potty stops, no fussing for ice cream, and no whining about “How much longer?” Next time I’ll tell you about the warm places we all love to find – and about Herbie’s experience in the clothes dryer. Herbie is a character. The stories I tell you are all real stories about real cats. My Widow writes down what I tell her – mostly.

According to Holy Scriptures, all love originates from God. The Greeks had three main words for love. Agape, which is sacrificial love; Philia, which is a brotherly love; and Eros, which is romantic/ sexual love. The sacrificial love of agape can be seen all over the bible. Whether we’re commanded to love God, neighbor and self, or we realize that nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord, love is truly the center of God’s Word. But when it comes to God’ love, it's just not words, but action! In 1 John 3:18 it is written, “Little children let us not love in word or talk but in deed and truth.” As the Father has shown us love by sending Jesus to be the world’s savior, we are called to physically share that love with others. In I John 3:16-17 it says, “By this we know love, that he (Jesus) laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need,

yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him? When I was a pastor in Upstate New York, there was a woman in our neighborhood who gave of herself to help others. Whether it was digging graves in the church cemetery, helping senior in need, or providing home repairs, Brenda was always ready and willing. She loved assisting others. And that’s exactly our mission. The greatest asset we have is time. May we freely use it out of love to touch another life. Whether it's volunteering to help a children’s program, taking a moment to visit with a senior or drive them to an appointment, assist at a warming shelter, or volunteering in any matter, this “love in action” makes a different. Within the next week many of us will be buying cards, flowers, candy, making dinner reservations and looking for that perfect gift to express our love to those very close to us. While all these displays are important to nurture relationships, ➤ See Hales, Page 11

to and embracing the future and not dwelling on superstitions or the past. I wish folks well in their personal and cultural rehabilitation. Zann: Can you see the educational components in both the effort being expressed here as well as in the language and plans that will follow the passing of the resolution? Reader # 2: NO I can't at all. History as represented in plain fact speaks for itself, not in some academic's or politician's neo-interpretation of it. Not via a revisionist history judged by WHOM? Would you allow anyone to write historical resolutions or just some special designated segment? Could the KKK write resolutions or just duly qualified liberal academics? Yea, thought so. Again, Soc101A teaches that we cannot judge historical events by today's standards - remember - and any resolution today condemning the past is doing that. We could spend a lifetime and millions making resolutions going back to Indian slights, colonization, Egyptian and African slavery, and cave men and it would do NOTHING for solving today's problems for the future. Again, you dwell solely in grievances of the past. Or you are an academic who benefits form such work. Move on. Can you? Zann: I will think on that and get back to you. Reader #2: Please don't. We're done. Thanks Until next week, be well. Zann Nelson is a researcher specializing in historical investigations, public speaker and award -winning freelance writer and columnist. She can be reached at or www.

➤ Hales, from Page 10 there is so much more to loving. Rather than thinking that responding to love only happens once a year, may we be in a “loving mode” each day. Yes, words of affection and care are extremely significant, but actions trump everything. President Theodore Roosevelt was once quoted, “Nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care.” Let us all think about that. Brad Hales is the pastor of Reformation Lutheran Church in Culpeper. Along with being ordained for over 24 years, he is also the Director of Domestic Mission for the North American Lutheran Church.

Among its many accolades, the film won seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actress (Gwyneth Paltrow), Best Supporting Actress (Judi Dench as Queen Elizabeth I), and Best Original Screenplay. * No one under the age of 17 will be admitted without a parent or guardian. 35mm archival film print. 123 min.

RAPPAHANNOCK COUNTY FEB. 8 SECOND FRIDAY TALK • Award-winning writer Sally Mott Freeman discusses “The Jersey Brothers,” a true, heroic story of three brothers in World War II at 8 p.m. at the Rappahannock County Library, Washington. The youngest was captured by the Japanese. Freeman tells the dramatic, harrowing story of the search to find him. “Her book is liable to break the hearts of ‘Unbroken’ fans,” the New York Times raved, “and it’s all true.” This was a family saga as well as a war story – the missing man was the author’s uncle, but her family had never known the true facts surrounding his disappearance. Her quest to find out took ten years." Freeman’s dogged investigative skills, the truth they reveal, and her ability to render it with grace,” wrote the Richmond Times-Dispatch, “combine to make her book unforgettable.” The talk is free.

VIEWS How did we get here? Our nation is changing all around us and not necessarily for the better. We have seen the rancor online and in the media and a number of people have asked, "How did we get here?" Some want to lay the blame on President Trump…which is short-sighted and incorrect. We got their on our own - and it was not just one thing or person that has gotten us to this current state of our culture. Here are the factors I think drove us here. 1. Social media has provided a stage for people who have long kept quiet to tell the world what they think in any given moment. We live in a world of reactions where we feel it is important to offer our opinions. We rank of everything around us. Social media gives the same credence of perspective to a moron as we would a genius. 2. There is no truth, only slanted, often twisted facts that support ideologies. We have so much access to data, we can no longer discern the truth. Facts have been replaced with beliefs. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez voiced this best in a CBS interview when she said, "“There's a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than about being




Your wallet, your money When we wake up each morning we have a certain amount of money. When we leave home that money leaves with us. Other money and any wealth we have accumulated, is affected by costs that occur daily, some are affected in ways we don't realize. When we return home we have an amount leftover in our wallets, that's not taxed. There are proposals to add more taxes, regulations, and fees (regulatory costs.) If these proposals

morally right.” 3. People have come to accept that anyone not believing what they do are inherently bad and must be loudly/ violently confronted. "You don't believe what I do, so now I must tell you why you are completely wrong about every aspect of your life." 4. It has become acceptable to use threats, intimidation, and even violence if you believe your cause just. 5. Labeling those that don't share your values and assigning negative attributes to those groups is publicly permissible. "If you support Trump, you are a Nazi/racist/xenophobe." We prescribe traits to labels. We have confused labeling something with solving something. 6. The media is an entertainment political party in its own right. The media not only slants their news coverage, but creates inaccurate news stories/photos, runs deceptive surveys, and editorializes its coverage. They subtly alter facts to fit an agenda. Example: President Trump doesn't send out a Tweet -- he, "Unleashes a Twitter-storm..." They believe it is not enough to cover the news, but to use their channels to drive political agendas, up to and including removal of a sitting US President. This is not the free press. 7. We have started to equate how someone feels with actions. Thus if someone is offended, it is considered equivalent to physical bullying, assault, etc. Likewise we have allowed thinking

that equates "social justice" with real justice. The result is we have become thinskinned, where everything we experience that doesn't agree with us is an assault on us personally. 8. It has become more important to be a victim than be part of a solution. We have people whose lives revolve around finding new ways to be insulted so they can relish being victims or champions for others they deem offended. 9. It has become trendy and acceptable to oppose any authority or institutions. We have spent the last few years watching as police, ICE, and even the churches are demonized. This removes moral and legal authority in our society. 10. Celebrities and the media believe their opinions are the most important over the common man. 11. There is no longer a standard for good behavior. "If we do it, it is right. If the other side does the same thing, it is horrifically wrong." We have always been a divided country - it is not new. I remember 1968 (barely) and our nation was divided then as well. The difference is that we are so connected to each other now, that there is no civility, no dignity, between us. We parade our raw emotions for the world to see…and that is not necessarily a healthy thing. While this says how we got here, it is up to us to determine the most important thing – where do we go from here?

are approved, we have less money, because our money has been removed. It is gone. It has been removed from our wallets, during the day, before we return home. The next day, before our feet touch the floor, we are still losing more money through regulatory costs. How do we recover this lost money? When we have a spouse and/or a family, how do we get the money back? How can we have a budget, if we do not know how much money we really have? Should government

keep taking more of our money? It is true, these proposals are aimed at taxing the rich, (billionaires.) If we continue to remove more and more money from the rich, how do they replenish their wallets? If the rich can no longer invest their money into our economy, how can our economy grow stronger? The loss of the rich people’s money affects all, from the poorest upward. These proposals affect not just the rich, they affect everyone. Nancy Richmond Reva

February being the month of Valentine’s Day, what better way to celebrate the approach of spring than by banishing the cold with the warmth of artistic friendship, the joy of seeing the

resulting art, and perhaps the excitement of a purchase in the name of love or friendship? A few highlights: Carolyn Roth is showing her glowing abstracts along with the work of member Anita Zymolka Amrhein; Sara Schneidman, of Culpeper fame, shows a pot as the friend of Linda Croxson, while Linda’s husband Philip Ward shows his work together with a piece by the locally very well known sculptor and painter Hans Gerhard.

L E T S E AT ! The Southern cheese trail Southern cheeses need their own trail. A highlighted route or map for turophiles (lovers of cheese) to explore. More than one state - that’s California’s gig - we are better and bigger than that. Connect the curd all the way from Maryland to Florida. We need to show folks the whey. Seriously this needs to be done. Like that west coast behemoth, not all of our Southern producers / facilities are open to the public. That’s ok, but creating an awareness that we are dairying, in the South, would be a boon for small producers to tell their story. That and it supports the ever popular “Buy Local” sentiment, with increased cheese awareness. I mean, how well do you know your state’s cheeses today? Specifically, how many Virginia cheese producers or cheeses can you name? If you are holding five fingers up you are doing very well. Now contrast your Virginia cheese awareness against say, European cheese varieties and producers. More than fingers and toes you will likely need a notepad to capture them all. That’s my point. We know more about cheeses from an ocean away. Having recently driven thousands of miles exploring southern cheeses, I believe the unique tastes and character of Southern cheese are

➤ Cheese, from Page 22 in Chattanooga or (if you are in touch with the creamery) at the Trading Post. Their cheeses, like the soft ripened, bloomy rind Dancing Fern (heavenly), or semi soft Coppinger with ash layer similar to Morbier or Shakerag Blue share a common thread - they are each made from raw milk. Working exclusively with raw milk preserves time honored cheese making traditions while preserving the distinct flavors of place that are commonly lost in pasteurization. Sequatchie Cove also takes further steps toward preserving itself re-purposing their whey to some very contented pigs and being 100% reliant on solar energy. It’s the sort of place where the room in which cheese is made has picture windows to the outside and to views of the milking parlor and, if the staff let Nathan, the Grateful Dead will be playing over the speakers. Bottom line, it feels genuine, homey with the sense of welcome that you could join in and help. Further South, in Thomasville, Georgia (Which is a must see destination on it’s own), lies Sweet Grass Dairy. In this business endeavor cheese is a family enterprise has expanded from dairying into a restaurant / retail operation that showcases their


cheeses. Here, too, you can’t get inside the creamery, but man oh man is it sweet. The cheeses are rock stars in own right (Thomasville Tomme (a personal favorite), Green Hill (silky double cream) Asher Blue & others), and it’s great to see the make and aging of same. What struck me most at Sweet Grass were the people. I could call out so many magical moments (like hugs) that resonated, but the playfulness of employees about things as seemingly mundane as cheese wrapping or making Pimento Spread (yeah, they make a good one of those too) explains much about their success. If it makes any sense, somehow all that love and fun comes through in their cheese. Southern Cheese. If you ask me, Southern Cheese is the next big thing. We just need a map (or an application) to guide people desirous of hopping from one curdelicious destination to the next. Something like California’s Cheese Trail just bigger and with Southern charm, y’all. Jeffery Mitchell is the owner of the Culpeper Cheese company. He is also a freelance contributor with the Culpeper Times. You may reach him at or 540.827.4757.
