Hippie Chick Apiary wins 2018 Good Food Award ➤ Using flow hives, Culpeper business keeps honey pure By Jeff Say


Hunter Diesman calls his mom “the bees knees.” It’s only fitting considering Dee and Joe Diesman’s latest venture has garnered them a national award. Dee and Joe, owners of Shear Love in Culpeper, started Hippie Chick Apiary almost a year ago and already have two and a half gallons of honey and a Good Food Award to show for it. The honey business was a sweet idea that came about when Hunter saw an idea on Indie Go-Go called a flow hive. Dee, whose father was a founding member of the EPA, liked the sound of the plan and decided to support it while they were living in Newport News. Shortly after, the family moved to Culpeper when she got an email saying that ➤ See Bees, Page 4

Powell Wellness Center earns medical fitness facility certification Powell Wellness Center has achieved certification by the Medical Fitness Association, the country’s leading organization dedicated solely to medically integrated fitness facilities. The certification process involves an in-depth, on-site review of a facility’s adherence to internationally recognized Standards and Guidelines for Medical Fitness Facilities. The Medical Fitness Association Facility Certification is recognized as a mark of excellence in the health and wellness industry. “We are proud to join a select group of industry leaders who are committed to improving health and promoting wellness through exercise. "The certification process has taken two years to prepare and represents a real team effort between our staff and volunteers.” said Eric Good, Director, Powell Wellness Center. As an MFA certified facility, co-medical directors, Drs. Armin Aalami Harandi and Brevard Wallace provide oversight for Powell Wellness Center’s medical fitness programs. A volunteer Medical Advisory Committee also advises staff in the development and oversight of fitness programs designed for people with chronic health conditions like obesity, heart disease, Parkinson’s, arthritis and more. “The importance of offering this integrated wellness approach across all age groups and income levels is vital to our community in helping to achieve better health both mentally and physically,” said Dr. Brevard Wallace, Medical Director, Powell Wellness Center. “This certification continues to advance our original vision for providing an atmosphere that allows all-around wellness for the entire community.” Powell Wellness Center provides fitness scholarships for people who are referred by their physician, meet income guidelines and actively participate in the program.

Terri Hudgen (Editor's note: This is weekly series highlighting members of Culpeper's Youth Council. To join Culpeper Youth, go to www. to apply. Why I joined Culpeper Youth: I am fortunate enough to be a part of the Youth Advisory Council and also be the secretary for Culpeper Youth. With that, I get to work with an innovative group of people to help advocate inclusion and allow voices to be heard from the youth of Culpeper. From this experience, I've learned the importance of communication, involvement in the community, and planning/networking. Culpeper Youth has given me the opportunity to find my voice and engrave myself into the community in ways I would have never thought of. I intend to use all that I have learned from Culpeper Youth after High school. In the fall I plan on attending Lasell College (in Boston, Massachusetts) majoring in Fashion Merchandising with a minor in entrepreneurship. Culpeper Youth has given me the tools I need to prosper in my new environment and future. I can't wait to embark on my new journey.


Powell Wellness Center Advisory Board Chair, Tripp Butler, has personal experience with the facility and said, “I am very excited about this important achievement at the Powell Wellness Center. I have seen firsthand the impact Powell has on our community. "In addition to my own activity at PWC, a local physician prescribed participation in the “Fit Scripts” program for a family member. Fit Scripts is a supervised exercise program that is a great way for people to increase their activity and improve overall health. "The positive, supportive atmosphere and variety of classes at Powell Wellness Center is impacting my family in a very humbling way.” Recently an Advisory Board member asked Good what MFA certification means to the members at Powell Wellness Center. He responded, “That’s a great question. MFA certification requires that our staff have industry-specific credentials to insure high quality programming. "It also means that we work closely with local physicians to help our members prevent illness and chronic disease, recover more quickly and completely after a medical event and that our staff are well-trained in emergency response and ensuring member safety. PWC is one of only three certified facilities in Virginia and offers a member experience that simply isn’t available elsewhere in our region.”

➤ Bees, from Page 2 they needed to update their information as the hives were going into production. Nine months later, the hives showed up at their door and Hippie Chick Apiary was born. “Just like a baby,” Joe said with a laugh. By the time the hives arrived, it was too late to start so the Diesman family began their bee venture in March 2017. There has been trials and tribulations along the way one queen and her brood escaped, and they’ve had to deal with Varroa mites, an invasive bug from Asia. That however, turned out to be a blessing in disguise. They had to harvest early due to the mites, which led to them winning the Good Food Award. Business is buzzing The Diesmans are selling their honey on and decided to enter the Good Food Awards after joining the Good Food Guild. Their hives have two queens with 20,000 bees each at the moment. The broods can get up to 80,000 to 90,000 per colony in the summer. “They’re buzzing around here all the time,” Dee said. “With the flow hive, which a lot of beekeepers don’t like the flow


hive,” Dee said. The flow hives, which Dee says many traditional beekeepers don’t like, have food grade plastic frames that store the honey. The bees fill any void with wax and put the honey in, and the frames are capped when it’s full. Then a metal bar is inserted that breaks the seal and honey flows down and out - thanks to gravity - into a waiting jar. It’s more humane, Hunter says, as they don’t have to disturb the bees. “There’s no smoking, it doesn’t harm or disturb the bees at all,” Hunter said. The hive allows honey to be removed without opening or removing the frames, hence not disturbing the bees. “My delicious honey was extracted using new revolutionary Flow Technology which allows for the honey to be extracted from the hive without opening and removing the frames or disturbing the bees,” Dee said. “The Flow Method of harvesting allows for the honey to be removed from the comb without the need to strain or process in any way. This gives our honey the unique advantage of tasting exactly like honeycomb honey, which has not had it's flavor or composition compromised by any extraction processes.” They harvested two and a half gallons on their first try, but weren’t sure what to do next. Dee turned to

After filling out the information and being informed they were a finalist in November, they were named the winner in January at a ceremony in San Francisco. “The whole experience there in San Francisco, being amongst other honey producers, it was an amazing coveri adventure,” Dee said. “The people peper ng

we met were amazing.” It’s a family affair for the Diesmans as everyone chips in to help - sons Justin, Michael, Hunter, Patrick and Michael’s girlfriend Leilani. Dee said adding to the ecosystem in Culpeper has been a joy, noting that in the past year her neighbors have said their bees have been helping pollinate all over. “Since we’ve done this, we’ve had people tell us their gardens were more fruitful than any year prior to us being here,” Dee said. “The flowers we planted were good up until our first frost in November.” The bee business is all about being natural, for Dee. “For me it’s providing the allnatural bee product as they make it,” Dee said. “We don’t put it in a centrifuge and blend the flavors. Each one of those frames will taste different depending on what they’ve pollinated.”

'Blonde' is beautiful ➤ CCHS theatre presents 'Legally Blonde - The Musical, Jr.' this weekend By Jeff Say


"Omigod You Guys," Elle Woods is coming to Culpeper. Culpeper County High School’s theatre production of “Legally Blonde - The Musical, Jr.” will be presented Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. CCHS fine arts teacher Maxi Mitchell said the students helped choose the musical, which is based on the novel “Legally Blonde” by Amanda Brown and the 2001 film of the same name starring Reese Witherspoon. “What we do is present four musical options that the directing team selects at the end,” Mitchell said. “We let the kids vote to get their input and we come to

a decision together. This is a marriage of the students choice and the director’s choice.” The story is based on the the novel “Legally Blonde” by Amanda Brown and the film that stars Reese Witherspoon. It tells the story of Elle Woods, a sorority girl who enrolls at Harvard Law School in an attempt to win back her ex-boyfriend Warner. She finds that she has a natural propensity for law and helps defend exercise queen Brooke Wyndham in a murder trial. It shows how believing in oneself can help you defy expectations. “It follows the storyline very closely, with musical numbers added in,” Mitchell said. Alyssa Bauer plays Woods, while Micah Leuterio performs as Warner. Chad McKnight plays her Harvard Law love interest Emmett Forest and Skylar Hagen is Paulette, the beautician.

Culpeper Times • Feb 15-21, 2018 ➤ Blonde, from Page 6 “I grew up on the movie, my mom and I love it and we watch it all the time,” Bauer said. “It’s really a dream come true.” Bauer said the message of the musical is an uplifting one. “I like how optimistic she is, I like to think I’m like that in my everyday life,” Bauer said. The play opens with the Delta Nu sorority sisters singing “Omigod You Guys,” as they prepare for Elle to be proposed to by Warner. Instead, he breaks up with her as he goes off to Harvard Law, saying he needs to date someone more “serious.” That leads to Woods following him, earning entry in the Harvard and finding out he has a new girlfriend. She goes to Paulette’s hair salon to become a brunette, convinced that will make her more serious. Hagen, utilizing a New England accent, talks her off the ledge. “It was a little difficult at first, I was kind of nervous to do the accent,” Hagen said with a laugh. “I just kind of went

with it and it came out.” Hagen said she was excited to find out the school was doing a production of Legally Blonde, and says her favorite number in the play is “Bend and Snap.” “All the girls help Paulette get guys, and she’s not having it,” Hagen said. McKnight said it was a little weird getting into the role as a Harvard “preppie.” “It’s definitely a little weird, I think I carry myself a little different than a Harvard person does,” McKnight said. His favorite number in the musical is “Legally Blonde.” “I just think it’s such a fun and exciting show, it’s one of the few heartfelt moments,” McKnight said. Mitchells said the cast and crew of more than 50 have been working on the show since December, practicing the grueling transitions and 15 musical numbers. “We’re using one of our new fly systems, we have projections,” Mitchell said. “It’s the fastest transitional show we’ve ever done. Everything is very fast paced.” Tickets at the door are $5 for students and $10 for adults.

Making a commitment to Mason Bees BEE HAPPY Felecia Chavez

Happy February Culpeper! I don’t know about you but I am so ready for spring, for me that has always been a time of renewal and I am anxiously waiting for the weather to start warming up, things to start blooming, and my bees to

become active. On some of the warmer days this past winter we’ve we were able to see the bees flying in and out of the hives which did my heart good. Even though this winter was bitter cold I knew we had done everything to insure they would make it into spring, but there are times you find yourself second guessing and find if a hive isn’t as strong as you thought it was you might find you’ve lost them. The first time I lost a hive I was so upset I found myself crying, and kept

asking myself, what could I have done differently? It happens, all you can do is put on your big girl/boy bee suit and carry on, that’s how we beekeepers roll! There have been many people

that have come into my shop and have asked about Mason Bees. They cannot make the commitment for becoming a beekeeper but would like to do something on a smaller scale to help our pollinators and often the questions asked are; how much time and effort do they take, do they have to do any maintenance, will they work for pollinating gardens? Well this year I am going to find out how well these little creatures do. But first a few facts about mason bees which are native to the Americas, are of hardier stock and are more resilient, they are low maintenance, and are less aggressive then their honey bee sisters and do sting, I have been told that their sting is unlike the sting of a honey bee and more like a mosquito bite (people are always asking me if I ever get stung and does it hurt? My answer? Yes, and Yes. I do not like getting stung, but it happens, it is not an excruciating pain but does hurt, but that’s just me, my husband can get stung and it doesn’t bother

him as much, go figure!) The mason bee does not forage as far as a honey bee and stays in close proximity to a much smaller area such as 300 feet from their home. Mason bees spend their entire life cycle, which is about 6-8 weeks continually pollinating, cross pollinating, and collecting pollen whereas a honey bee hive requires closer inspection and monitoring. The great thing about mason bees is that the startup cost is very minimal, and they are less susceptible to disease, pests and are great for a backyard garden. There are a number of places you can buy mason bee houses such as your local garden centers with many price ranges. I am excited to start this small adventure and will keep you posted on my mason bees! Felecia Chavez is the owner of La Bee da Loca located at 236 E. Davis Street in Culpeper.

New worship leader Pass brings her vision to CUMC By Amy Wagner


Culpeper United Methodist Church has joined forces with a sought after speaker, worship leader, song writer and recently published author whose vision includes transforming Sunday morning worship into a more openly expressive relationship with God. Denise Pass began her journey with CUMC on January first of this year as the Praise and Worship leader for the 9:29 a.m. service. Pass came to CUMC during a time of transition. Two new youth leaders arrived late fall of 2017 and the church body had been undergoing a leadership transformation that recently led to hiring of an Executive Director. Pass is not disheartened in any way however, noting that her acceptance at CUMC was a calling from God. “I believe every church has their seasons, challenges and victories. I had been praying to be sent somewhere if that was His will. I am amazed at the graciousness of people at Culpeper United Methodist” Pass said last week. Pass served nine years in a wor-

ship leader role at New Life Community Church in Louisa prior to this appointment. “I felt a nudging from the Holy Spirit to move on,” said Pass who felt led to allow someone else to step into her previous position. Following a personal crisis in 2007 that dramatically affected her life Pass found healing and restoration and uses her ministry and songs to speak to others and lead them to God’s truth. “God has brought her through a lot and she is in a place to be able to minister to others in their pain to bring a deeper level of healing and hope,” said lead Pastor Randy Orndorff who is excited about the talent, gifts, passion and experience Pass brings to CUMC. Pass describes herself as “the real deal” using words like authentic, humble and passionate. A meaningful worship experience is important to Pass. “I could never have the power to lead someone to God – it’s their choice. If I can provide authentic space where they can meet God, I want to do that. In church we can often be silent and I want them {congregation] to know that worship is a relationship with God. Worship is an expression of

Orndorff said Pass “not only moves us to worship through songs and scriptures on Sunday mornings, but to go live it out in our homes, community, schools, work places and neighborhoods each day”. Pass lives in Unionville with her husband Clay and they have five children. Pass has recorded several CDs including Praying for You, recorded

in Nashville in 2005, and most recently Seeing Deep, in 2015. A published author with the Upper Room, Pass recently wrote a book, Shame Off You, which will be published this fall and has a podcast, www.blackandwhitepodcast. org, starting this month which will address relevant issues, speaking truth with hope. ➤ See Pass, Page 11

The celebration begins in March SECRETS OF THE LIBRARY

The Culpeper County Library celebrates the 20th Anniversary at its current location. On Friday, March 2, the celebration will begin with something that many people have never seen. An 18 hole miniature golf course will be set up throughout the stacks. The Library will close at 3:00pm that day so the course can be set up. The doors will reopen to the public from 6:00pm to 9:00pm for a Homemade Dessert Buffet and Mini Golf for a five dollar fee. Pre-registration is required. To pay the fee, stop by the Circulation Desk at the Library any day through February 26, 2018. On Saturday, March 3, the course will still be set up for use on a first come, first served basis. This is a free event. Calfee Garden Club members will be adding to the decoration with beautiful floral arrangements. Sponsors are needed to decorate each hole with obstacles for the golfers to play around. The purpose is to

depict your particular business. If you would like to sponsor and join in the fun, contact Kathy Clevenger at 540825-8691 or visit for more information. Starting on March 5 there will be an interactive Social Media Scavenger Hunt for items in the Library. The participants will be tasked to find two things each Tuesday and Friday. This will be a Facebook challenge. After the last challenge, the first person who found the most objects will receive a prize. Each week of the month, “Word Find Puzzles” will be available. Puzzles are different for children and adults. When all the words are found and it is handed in to the Circulation Desk, the person will receive a small gift. Their name and email will be entered into the large drawing for a basket donated by community businesses. Posters with a collage of pictures depicting the 20 year Library history will be in different locations throughout the building. There are many plaques on the walls honoring those community members who contributed to different areas. The original blueprints of the Library and the most popular books of 1998

talists and audiovisual people, “that they would be greatly encouraged”. “It’s not just singing a song. I want to live these lyrics together; it unifies the church,” she said. Pass invites women to attend a women’s retreat at CUMC February 23 – 25 where she will be the keynote speaker and worship leader. More information about the renewal conference can be found on the church website at

Fran Cecere

Pass has a vision for the contemporary 9:29 a.m. service at CUMC. “First and foremost when people come into church, that they are accepted. There is a freedom in worship – to clap, dance, be authentic and encounter God. I hope their hearts are prepared once the songs are done so they can hear the sermon.” As far as the team, which includes other vocalists, instrumen-

will be on display. Other historical objects, such as the card catalog will be featured. The youth of today can learn about the cataloguing system used before computers became popular. An informational poster on top of the card catalog will explain how the information on the paper cards became computer data. Who used the Machine Readable Records (MARC) system to convert the data? Where was this work done? And why were these special workers employed to do this? On March 10 the Fifth Annual Culpeper Tells will be presented at the Culpeper Baptist Church. The afternoon activities are from 1 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. The three story-tellers are Josh Goforth, Ed Stivender, and Charlotte Blake Alston. For the first time this year, as part of the afternoon events Stivender will be presenting a storytelling workshop. Again this year there will be a Story Slam. Amateur storytellers can submit their names into a hat and may be selected to tell their story on stage for a chance to win a cash prize. The dinner break is from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to dine at some of the downtown restaurants who offer discounts if Culpeper Tells is mentioned. The evening performance begins at 7:30pm and this includes all three of the national story-tellers. The tellers are funny, poignant, and educational. Elana Clements one of the event coordinators stated, “Every one of us


is a storyteller. Culpeper Tells is such an inspirational event. Each year I leave wanting to share my own stories and reconnect with family and friends through them.” In addition to presenting at the main event, Josh Goforth and Ed Stivender will be telling stories at six Elementary Schools on Friday, March 9. This is the second year of partnering with the Culpeper County Public Schools to give students the opportunity to experience storytelling from some of the best professional storytellers in the country. It has been well received by the students and the teachers. Kelly Rozwadowski co-coordinator of the event said, “ Sharing stories brings us together as a community, highlighting how much we have in common. Storytelling fires the imagination with its vivid descriptions, providing a creative spark that can help students with their assignments and projects. It is also great practice to help us all become better listeners.” This part of the program is supported by The Meade-Palmer Grant from The Northern Piedmont Community Foundation and The Friends of the Library. While there will be activities celebrating the 20th anniversary, all regularly scheduled activities will continue to be offered during the month. For public transportation, The Culpeper Trolley has a bus stop at the Library. For more information see or the Library Facebook page.

LET’S EAT! Farmers’ dry winter worries getting stronger


Best BBQ in Culpeper...

A dry fall and an even drier January are creating some concerns for Virginia farmers. “I don’t think I stepped foot in mud on the two farms where I feed cattle until last Monday. That’s how dry it is,” said Robert Harper, who raises cattle in Goochland and Powhatan counties and serves as Virginia Farm Bureau Federation grain marketing manager. It’s good that farmers can get out in the fields during this mid-winter dry spell, Harper noted. But topsoil moisture rates are low on 29 percent of Virginia’s farmland, according to a National Agricultural Statistics Service report Jan. 29. That’s worrisome if the dry spell continues much longer, said Jerry Stenger, director of the state office of climatology at the University of Virginia. “We could be in a bad situation regarding water supplies for everyone once we get to the beginning of the growing season,” Stenger said. “We’re in the part of the year when it’s cold-

er and there’s very little uptake by plants. So what precipitation we do get has a good chance of passing down through the topsoil into our groundwater system.” However, Harper said there is a silver lining. “Farmers have told me they’ve gotten some deep tillage done. Some folks have gone over their farmland and gotten lime down and not gotten stuck. And some of the tobacco growers we work with have had a real good month working land and getting ready for next spring. “Wheat, barley and oats are pretty much dormant now, so they can handle dry weather this time of year. In my opinion if folks got their crop well established, this isn’t hurting them any,” Harper added. At the end of 2017, Virginia’s groundwater system statewide was not in good shape, with levels either low or approaching critical levels, Stenger noted. “We have had very few moisture-bearing systems coming through Virginia this winter, the exception being some systems in Eastern Virginia that brought levels up near normal there,” he added. But in the Shenandoah Valley and the rest of the state, groundwater supplies are below 75 percent what they normally are in winter.

It seems the Democrats in Congress have once again demonstrated their total lack of fitness to offer America anything other than disdain for our great nation.

He purposely motioned to the other side of the chamber, most of them mostly sitting on their hands as if in despair.

Culpeper County Parks and Rec programs

Culpeper County Parks and Rec has a few great programs to help chase away those winter blues. What better way to get rid of the winter blues than to come up with a story about being somewhere else? We also have fun fitness classes to help keep your New Year’s resolutions – come try Zumba or Hot Hula (as in grass skirts – not hula hoops). You’ll have a fun time and not realize you’re getting a workout, open to ages 13 & up. Also, our new Class Transform – it combines the best of yoga and sports training. For the younger kids, give our Little Tigers of Karate program a try, open to ages 6-11yrs. For the active adults out there, Tai Chi is a relaxing way to stay in shape, practice your balance, and meet new friends. Looking for something more “artsy” – we have a one day Landscape Painting class, separate times for kids and adults.
