HISTORY Genealogy: A walk down Ancestors’ Lane: Part 2 ZANN’S PLACE

Part one left you with this statement: there are a plethora of resources for a genealogical exploration but be prepared to get tired and frustrated and you may also find it necessary to seek a bit of help. Let’s assume for a moment that your family history is out there just waiting for you to start looking. You may ask yourself, do I really want to know? All of us who believe in history and heritage, be it public or private are well aware that it isn’t always glorious. There may exist soldiers, outlaws or leaders. They may have lived adventurous or lackluster lives. They may have been Native American, European, Asian, African or a pinch of this and a pinch of that. But here is the best part of it all; it is your unique story. You can improve on it, learn from it or

simply choose to ignore it. The latter may be a tad difficult if your family enjoys the ritual of periodic reunions, but that is a subject for another day. I had the good fortune to have been raised by a father who felt it was a part of his parental duties to pass along family histories. In addition, I shared many years living with or near my paternal grandparents and have become the keeper of a wonderful collection of family memorabilia. These factors got me off to a good start and the Internet has proved to be a valuable asset. Though not nearly done, I have discovered new relatives and some very interesting stories. I will impose upon your goodwill and share a few of the highlights. My Dad’s side consisted of Nelsons and Johnsons starting out in Maryland and Virginia and emigrating south finally settling in West Texas in the second half of the 19th century. There is a story about great-granddaddy Johnson who joined the CSA 2nd Texas Mounted Rifles when he was 15 stating later that, “He

lied about his age to get in and he would have gladly lied about his age to get out.” My great-grandfather Nelson was orphaned at about 16 and became a buffalo skinner. He was Scurry County’s first sheriff but after his only prisoner set fire to the jail, he decided it wasn’t the life for him and resigned. He moved a few miles from the county seat of Snyder and began ranching. The ranch is still in one piece and the house and at least one original out building survive. My mother’s family of Collins and Royers came to this country in the mid - 1800s from France, Germany and Eastern Europe. They settled in Ohio and Illinois. My research on the Royers and Collins has been more challenging but fruitful, nonetheless. I have found veterans from WWI and II and a first cousin who apparently suffered from wanderlust and possessed some serious commitment challenges. They tell a story on him that he left his fourth wife in Illinois while on the proverbial “jaunt

to the store for a pack of cigarettes.” They heard later he was living in California. Not surprisingly, I discovered three great-uncles from Ohio who fought for the Union Army during the American Civil War. The family history states that they were all killed, but I have yet to confirm. 2019 Update: It was one great-uncle “Leo:” killed July 8, 1864 in Knoxville, Tennessee. Co E, 104th Ohio Infantry. There is much more to unearth, and I find it all fascinating. I think my favorite piece of information may be that my great-grandmother in the Collins line was from Bohemia. Some might say it explains a lot about her great-granddaughter. Until next week, be well.

COMMUNITY NEWS

CulpeperFest moves back to Daniel Technology Center CulpeperFest is moving back to Germanna Community College’s Daniel Technology Center. After being hosted at Eastern View High School the past four years, the Culpeper Chamber of Commerce CulpeperFest committee decided to move the annual business showcase back to the Daniel Technology Center. “I think the biggest reason is the space at the Daniel Technology Center,” committee member Marshall Keene said. “It allows the chamber to expand the number of vendors and the type of vendors we can invite. For many of the chamber members the school setting wasn’t a good fit for them so we’re hoping Germanna can accommodate everybody.” One of the highlights of moving the venue back to the Daniel Technology Center was the ability to host alcohol vendors. Three local breweries - Far Gohn Brewery, Old Trade Brewery, Beer Hound Brewery - and several wineries will be able to offer their selections to visitors. The venue at Germanna also allows for vendors to be in the same space. “Some of that was in response to the general public as well as the vendors,” committee member Mike Jenkins said. “People felt like they were separated. We wanted to get it back to one central location.” While alcohol will be available, Keene stressed that CulpeperFest will still have activities for all ages. “The goal is to still have a family event,” Keene said. “The town has loaned us their stage so we’re still going to have music.” CulpeperFest has become the go to event for seeing friends and neighbors over the years. “Not only do they get the opportunity to see the business people, but many people that don’t see each other between the event,” Jenkins said. “It’s a way to meet up with old friends and acquaintances.” “It’s a way for chamber to showcase Culpeper’s businesses to the community,” Keene said. CulpeperFest will be held Friday, June 14 from 4 to 9 p.m. Businesses do not have to be a member of the Culpeper Chamber of Commerce to be a vendor, though fees are reduced for chamber members.

Jamie Clancey (Editor's note: This is weekly series highlighting members of Culpeper's Youth Council. To join Culpeper Youth, go to www.culpeperyouth.org to apply.) My name is Jamie Clancey and I am the Culpeper Youth Coordinator. I work with the Youth Advisory Council, the leadership of Culpeper Youth, in a supportive, mentoring capacity and to be a resource to them and the members of Culpeper Youth. Through this role, I have built relationships with the members of Culpeper Youth and YAC and I would like to take this opportunity to say that Culpeper Youth is made up of some amazing young people. I have observed as they have taken advantage of the space they are given to practice leadership skills such as communication, problem solving, networking, planning, teamwork, conflict resolution, and even creating a strategic plan for the Culpeper Youth nonprofit. Through my community involvement over the years, I have noticed that meetings took place during which we adults would sit around a table and discuss what the youth need without ever having asked for students to be a part of the discussion. Culpeper Youth acts as a way to remedy that. Members of Culpeper Youth are the voice of the student community and when given the opportunity and the proper supports, they are able to realize their true potential and rise to the occasion. Culpeper Youth is open to all rising 7th12th graders in public, private, or home school.

EV FCCLA members promote increased water intake for students, staff Members of Eastern View’s FCCLA are encouraging students and staff to drink more water this winter. The students of FCCLA, which stands for Family, Career and Community Leaders of America, are using their skills to promote the increase in water intake.

Along with a school-wide lesson on the importance of water intake to the body, students provided free water bottles to more than 60 students and staff for the project. “The students have been the ones who have really led this project,” said Laura Butcher, who oversees the program. “We want to bring awareness to the importance of water to the body.” Each morning and afternoon, FCCLA members provide filtered water to students and staff and fruit-infused water on Friday to

those who joined the Hydration Motivation accountability group by receiving a water bottle. Butcher, who is working on increasing her own water intake, said the program has been a success. “I am trying to get more water in,” Butcher said. “I can’t say that I drink two full bottles [each day], but I have been able to drink more water than before.” The project was funded through a $500 grant from the Virginia FCCLA Leadership Foundation, the Nutrition and Wellness and Graphic Design programs at EV, and Kash Imprints, a local business Jedidiah Johnson, a senior at EV, is among a handful of students gathering data from the project to use it to research the topic of how to promote water intake. “I think it is important for people to drink water so they can stay hydrated,” Johnson said. “Water helps us to keep moving and continue to do the activities we love.” Johnson said the project has taught him how bad soda is for the body and how humans need an ounce of water per day for each pound they weigh. Shawnna Norton, who is also a senior, said she learned just how important it is to drink water each day. Norton and Johnson, along with Bianet Rayon Becerril, are part of a group of EV students who will take this project to state competition later this year. The students plan to compete in the FCCLA’s National Programs in Action STAR Event with a focus on the Student Body category, which helps young people learn to eat right, be fit, and make healthy choices. According to the FCCLA’s national website, the organization’s goals are to “help young people make informed, responsible decisions about their health, provide youth opportunities to teach others, and develop healthy lifestyles, as well as communication and leadership skills.” At EV, the students are hoping their project will lead to lifelong changes in behavior for their classmates and school community. “I would let them know that [drinking water] can really make a difference,” Becerril said. “Ever since I was seven, I would get kidney infections easily [from] not drinking enough water. I would tell people to not wait until they’re in pain or not feeling well.”

Eastern View High School's Kristin Atterberry dribbles up the court against Orange during the Medford Basketball League Tuesday. games throughout the season, three at home and three away - all during the school day. On Tuesday, the four teams met at Orange for the championship tournament, with Culpeper County High School falling to Madison 23-22 and Orange defeating Eastern View High School 20-18. Wins and losses don’t phase the athletes in the Medford League, their smiles showcase how much they enjoy being able to be out on the court performing in front of an audience. “They were really excited,” Calabrese said. “It’s really fun during the home games and even the away games to have the entire student body come watch them. It really means a lot to them because they get

to be the center of attention.” The large crowd at the Orange field house cheered on all four teams, roaring whenever a player made a basket - regardless of what school they were from. While on the court, some players consulted with the student coaches who helped make sure everyone was having a good time. “I think it says a lot about our community as a whole, about the inclusive nature of our community and our school, and how our students care for each other,” CCHS principal Danny Soderholm said. “It’s been great to see the friendships develop within our school, between the coaches and the team.” ➤ See Medford, Page 5

make them feel like normal students. “It’s very important because it’s a good way to advocate for individuals with disabilities,” Calabrese said. “It gives them an opportunity to display their talents that may be overlooked by the general population.” For a student coach like Hatfield, getting a chance to interact with the Medford league players is an amazing opportunity. “It’s awesome, it’s such a rewarding experience,” Hatfield said. “These kids put their heart on the line every time they are out here. It’s so fun to be able to see them compete against other teams.” Hatfield saw the league in action last year and couldn’t wait to volunteer as a student coach, “because we’re impacting these kids lives.” “When we have home games we make them signs and there are so many students trying to get pictures with them,” Hatfield said. “It’s a really good experience.” PHOTO BY IAN CHINI

George Washington Carver alumni Hubert Jackson stands beside the mural he painted at the Four County Museum at the former George Washington Carver Regional High School during a ribbon cutting Friday.

Carver Four-County Museum highlights impact of school ➤ Ribbon cutting for museum brings out more than a hundred interested in history of George Washington Carver Regional High School By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer The legacy of George Washington Carver Regional High School continued Friday with the unveiling of the Carver Four-County Museum. A ribbon cutting welcoming the museum to the community was hosted by the Culpeper Chamber of Commerce and more than 100 people turned out to learn about the history and impact of the regional high school. Museum curator Terry Miller explained that the African American high school was opened in 1948 and closed in 1968. The high school was comprised of students from Culpeper, Rappahannock, Madison and Orange counties and was created following a report by the Virginia Education Commission. Miller explained the report was commissioned by Virginia Gov. Colgate Darden but after he left office the progressive movement to provide education for African Americans took a back seat. It wasn’t until the schools were integrated in the late 1960s that progress moved forward again.

She beamed as she told the tale of Carver’s history. “We’re extremely excited,” Miller said. “This is like the foundation of bringing together information about the four counties, so we can expand that and share that with the entire community.” Hortense Hinton-Jackson, Vice-Chair of George Washington Carver Regional High School Alumni Association, explained the process that went into planning the museum - located in the library of the Carver building. “You can’t imagine how excited we are, and with how much anticipation we waited for this day,” Hinton-Jackson said. “Nobody knows your story like your story. That’s what we realized, there weren’t a whole lot of us left around to tell this story. We needed to get real busy and figure out how we were going to leave this legacy of this place for those that came after us. As we explored this, we learned it was not just about us - the students. We learned it was about the community. It was about our parents, it was about the political atmosphere of the state.” Hinton-Jackson praised Miller for her work in collecting artifacts and researching stories for the inaugural exhibit. Through their research, Hinton-Jackson pointed out that the layman speaker at the opening was Charles Coleman, her grandfather. It showed how the community rallied to create a high school for African American students, she said. “We had a drive and a thirst for education ➤ See Carver, Page 7

➤ Carver, from Page 6 but there weren’t opportunities for us,” Hinton-Jackson said. “When Carver was built, I can’t imagine the joy of my parents and my grandparents. Culpeper students got so mad, they had to have a new school themselves.” The impact of Carver alumni has been felt around the world, Hinton-Jackson said. There are teachers, scientists, authors and more that can count Carver as their alma mater. Hinton-Jackson estimates there are thousands of alumni, but they haven’t identified them all yet. “We do know, we’re quickly leaving the scene, that’s why we wanted to get this done,” Hinton-Jackson said. “It’s been a vision for a long time. This building’s status was going up and down. About three or four years ago we sat down and asked ‘are we going for this?’” The Carver building is in the midst of a resurgence with the New Pathways school teaching skilled laborers in the rear of the building, the American Welding Institute nearby on the grounds and the New Farmers working to learn agriculture skills. “It’s a unique integration of things that speak to Carver,” Hinton-Jackson said. “The new farmers, the tech training, all those things speak to Carver’s commitment to education. In all of that we didn’t want to lose this building's historical significance to the community.” It’s history is represented beautifully in a 16-foot-wide by 4-foot-high mural painted by

When it Comes to Customer Service Jobs, a Nifty Title Can Really Pay Off C

ustomer service job titles are changing, and the one you end up with in your next customer service role could significantly affect how much you get paid, even if the skill requirements are the same. Most job titles have at least one alias: software developer and software engineer; outside sales representative and B2B sales representative; talent development specialist and recruiter, to name a few. But regardless of the title du jour, each role and their analog tend to pay about the same, according to the ZipRecruiter Compensation Estimate. But unlike software developers and HR reps, which tend to have two or three synonymous job titles, customer service representatives are referred to in more than 30 different ways in jobs posted to ZipRecruiter, not including titles that denote senior or management positions. What’s more, even though the core skill requirements for customer service jobs remain consistent across different titles, research

shows as much as a 35 percent difference in pay. THE FASTEST GROWING TITLES PAY A PREMIUM

Novel job titles pop-up on ZipRecruiter all the time. But the sales ninjas and data jedis of the world are usually one-offs, used here and there but rarely gaining mainstream adoption. A few alternative customer service titles, however, are clearly catching on. Although customer service representative still accounts for the largest share of customer service job titles on ZipRecruiter — about 42 percent — the growth in postings using this title pales in comparison to a few of the loftier sounding titles in 2018. The fastest growing customer service job title for 2018 was customer experience associate, increasing 346 percent year over year. Customer engagement representative job postings increased 214 percent, and customer service advisors jumped 138 percent, all three of which significantly outpaced the 89 percent

growth in CSR jobs. To be sure, ZipRecruiter analyzed the job titles of more than 5 million customer service openings posted at the site in 2018 to see what, if any differences existed between the roles. While some of the jobs prioritized a few skills over others, they found that the top 10 skills for each of the job titles were nearly identical. Although the different titles come with the same responsibilities, the pay varies widely. Data showed that the fastest growing customer service job titles pay an average of $2 to $5 more per hour than roles advertised using traditional customer service titles. Someone hired as a customer service professional stands to earn an average of $10,000 per year less than their similarly qualified counterpart working as a customer experience associate. Assuming a 35-year career with a 5 percent annual pay increase, the customer service professional could lose more than $800,000 in lifetime earnings. —Jeffery Marino | Ziprecruiter

Changes in Skill Requirements Herald the Future of Warehouse Work

A

lthough employment in the warehouse and storage subsector has continued to outpace growth in nearly every other industry, you can’t just ask Alexa for a warehouse job and expect one to arrive on your doorstep. In fact, warehouse jobs were the most competitive among job seekers on ZipRecruiter in all of 2018. It’s with good reason that these jobs have been sought after for so long. A relatively low barrier to entry, coupled with an average hourly wage of $14, and the near ubiquity of fulfillment centers across the U.S. have made warehouse jobs the go-to for blue-collar workers for decades. Unfortunately, many of those vying for these positions today may not be aware of the tectonic shift in skills required to be a successful candidate. Advances in automation and drone technology have clearly changed the character of warehouse work: according to ZipRecruiter data, it now has more to do with systems management that it does moving boxes. A BLURRED LINE BETWEEN MANUAL LABOR AND MANAGEMENT

Judging ZipRecruiter’s analysis of thou-

sands of warehouse jobs posted to the site in January of 2018 and 2019, the humans haven’t been totally replaced in warehouses quite yet. Overall, jobs in warehousing and storage posted on ZipRecruiter increased by 85 percent in 2018 compared to the year prior. Management level positions increased nearly twice as much, however. Over the same period jobs in warehousing and storage with the word “manager” in the title grew 164 percent — a trend that is evident from the shifting skills requirements observed in ZipRecruiter job postings. The site compared thousands of job openings posted to ZipRecruiter in January 2018 to January of this year to see how the skills required by employers have changed. The two skills that saw the greatest decline happened to be two of the most fundamental skills traditionally associated with warehouse work: packaging (down 81 percent) and stocking (down 48 percent). The skills that are on the rise sound more like they’re for an entry-level business services role, albeit one that requires JOBS

“heavy lifting.” Relationship management and math skills were the top two fastestgrowing skills requirements that employers in the warehousing industry mentioned in job postings this January. In addition to heavy lifting, there are still some usual suspects in the list of top skills—loading and unloading increased 95 percent year over year, for instance. But even this skill could have greater currency in the age of automation. In a study on the job creation potential of autonomous trucks performed by Uber’s Advanced Technologies Group last year, the authors identified the need for the human touch at distinct moments of an otherwise automated logistics process: “The biggest technical hurdles for self-

driving trucks are driving on tight and crowded city streets, backing into complex loading docks and navigating through busy facilities. At each of the local haul pick ups and drop offs, there will need to be loading and unloading. These maneuvers require skills that will be hard for selfdriving trucks to match for a long time.” But technology still has a ways to go before we can define the relationship between man and machine. Until then, it’s clear that existing technology has called for more employees with management skills to keep these systems running at an optimal level. This includes not only technical acumen but also the administrative and interpersonal skills one would expect any good manager to have. —Jeffery Marino | Ziprecruiter

What’s Happening FILM • “Rise of the Guardians”

(Paramount, 2012) This computer animated action film is based on The Guardians of Childhood book series by William Joyce.

In this story, the Guardians enlist Jack Frost to stop Pitch Black from engulfing the world in darkness. The voice cast features Chris Pine as Jack Frost, Alec Baldwin as North/Santa Claus, Hugh Jackman the Easter Bunny, Isla Fisher the Tooth Fairy and Jude Law as Pitch Black. The film was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Animated Feature Film. Described on Rotten Tomatoes as “a sort of Avengers for the elementary school set, ‘Rise of the Guardians’ is wonderfully animated and briskly paced.” Rated PG. 35mm archival print, 97 min.

VIEWS Al's stories will live on THE MARSHALL PLAN Marshall Conner

This winter I’ve read more Jim Harrison poems than normal— perhaps I’ve absorbed a bit of his crusty spirit. His appreciation of the little Gods that flutter above us, old dogs, overgrown paths, rivers, mortality, and open

spaces. The world---has never been the exclusive domain of perfect things. Life can be cruel, unfair and ridiculous. I have been bitten by Brown Recluse spiders two times and I have the scars to prove it. I mention it only because it influenced my opinion of spiders in a negative way. Spiders do what spiders do—they creep, make cool webs and bite things. Through much of my life I’ve been quick to stomp or bash all manner of arachnids that crossed my path. One day I felt a pang of enlightenment when I spotted a spider crawling across my living room. I picked it up and took it to my front porch where I released it tenderly back into the wild. Perhaps, I was trying to make peace with a bad memory. My kids were delighted that I had made this small gesture of mercy. They giggled at my new-found empathy. I felt empowered with positive karma—right up until the moment a

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Safeway raises close to $1,800 for Culpeper Food Closet Safeway's Neighbor Helping Neighbor program that finished last week was a wonderful example of the atmosphere that prevails in Culpeper! While the Culpeper Food Closet is a Ministry of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, it truly belongs to the community. Culpeper businesses and citizens have always taken the time

hungry little sparrow swooped down from the sky and ate the spider. I had to laugh as the spider’s creepy life ended in such a twisted way. The spider and I had it all for a moment… mercy, forgiveness, freedom and joy. During an interview last week, a friend asked me, “I wonder what our old buddy Al is up to?” Sadly, we found his name on an accident report from the State Police the next day. I was shocked to read that Albert Martin III, one of my old sports and newsroom buddies had passed away from injuries he sustained in a car accident. The tragic news brought back so many memories. We used to edit each other’s stories, gripe about politics, and share our thoughts on life over endless cups of coffee. His expertise in auto racing was always appreciated when I was an inexperienced sports editor back in the late 90s. I will always recall his wit, life knowledge and advice in the often messed up mercenary world of newspapers. He was at his essence a guy that loved his little farm in Reva, freelance writing, auto racing, photography, old dogs, music, and visits from grandkids. I will always remember the boyish glint in his eyes whenever he saw a beautiful lady around town. He was far from perfect, even by his own account, but that gave him perspective, character and a special kind of wisdom. I will miss the "Old Rooster" as I liked

to call him. He used to refer to me as the buzz-cut “Hooligan” from that military reform school. As I've learned too many times the last decade, always seize the opportunity to spend time with your friends and family. You never know when life will throw you the last pitch. When people leave this world, we often say all the nice things we should have told them when they were with us. As the poet Jim Harrison wrote, “Death steals everything except our stories.” I will raise a cup of black coffee in Al’s honor. A cup of the strong, bottom of the pot, bitter, jaded newsroom stuff. The kind of coffee that makes you pace, curse your paycheck, plot, and finally get through the inverted pyramid of one more special section story. Here’s to your farm, the sound of birds, the rumble of race cars and clucking chickens. Here’s to old bylines and opening a newspaper each morning. Here’s to the craft of community journalism in all its subtle glory. Here’s to the writers and photographers who put in the long hours. Here’s to all the stories that mothers save, politicians complain about and sports fans love. Here’s to great songs, beautiful ladies and one more lap around the dirt track. Al used to say, “People have tried to manage us all our lives, haven’t they?” Then with a chuckle he would always add, “I guess they will never learn brother.”

and poured energy into being good neighbors. Safeway has always been an important part of our community and the support you give the Culpeper Food Closet is just one of the many ways it is shown. Your cashiers quietly asking each customer if they would help their neighbor through the Culpeper Food Closet was the key. They raised almost $1,8000! People are always the key. Letting folks know that their gift was staying in

Culpeper really made the difference. Please let each of them know how much we appreciate this effort. We are looking forward to continuing our rejuvenated relationship with Safeway so we may continue serving our neighbor. Please express our thanks to your corporate managers for assisting our local store to keep these funds local. William Green Food Closet Coordinator

Local News

‘The Heiress’ won’t buy his love “Vengeance is mine” saith the Lord. “Mine too!” saith Catherine Sloper. It’s all very well to tell our daughters who are plain that they are beautiful inside and have many fine qualities; however, when they have money, we tell them to beware! Gold digging season is ever upon us in every age, and the quarry must be vigilant. That’s the short message of “The Heiress”, a timeless story based upon Henry James’ novel “Washington Square.” Set in a well-heeled New York City neighborhood during the pre-Gilded Age, “The Heiress” folds its cautionary message into the delicate layers of revelation and character development. Respecting the script’s period limitations, director Seema Sueko mines gold in her cast and crew to produce a seamless production. Her confident staging makes an asset of the sometimes difficult four-sided Fichandler, and the result is three-dimensional, accessible, and enveloping. Catherine Sloper can’t compete with her dead mother – no one can – yet her father, the august Dr. Sloper, spares no

expense to give her every advantage. Grief over his wife’s death in childbirth has translated into the single-minded intention of turning the daughter into the mother, or at least an acceptable facsimile with vivacity, beauty, and talent – but alas. Catherine is plain of face and shy of spirit, and consequently, a disappointment. Enter the ardent suitor, Morris Townsend, a man without fortune or prospects who finds the unremarkable Catherine, heiress to a substantial fortune, irresistible. Does he truly love Catherine for herself? Never having been loved before, Catherine says yes. Knowing the wiles and ways of men and gold diggers everywhere, Dr. Sloper says no. Worse, he implies that no one COULD love her without her money. “The Heiress” rests on this: hope where hope never thrived before, bolstered by the romantic notions of a giddy aunt and pitted against the cynical realism of her father – and all of it pivots on the true nature of young Morris.

A small, sterling cast brings it vividly to life. At the center of this decorous storm is Laura Harris as the bewildered, besotted Catherine. The one truly dynamic character in the play, she moves us to deep sympathy in Act I for the pathos of her loneliness and need. Resisting at first, embarrassed by these unfamiliar proclamations, she soon falls like a ripe peach in the summer sun. By Act II, she is a woman who has learned a thing or two and is no longer the soft sponge absorbing ill-suited advice; subtle shifts of posture and voice make the changes clear. With superb complexity, James Whalen embodies the hard-nosed, unsentimental doctor whose discontent with Catherine could elicit our silent boos and hisses, but faintly. Fate has played him a shabby trick. The psychology of mourning, as he does, for the loss of a woman he adored explains though it does not excuse his treatment of his daughter. The cold, evaluative eye that makes him a good doctor also gives him a trustworthy intuition about character. At the other end of the spectrum is Dr. Sloper’s dizzy sister, dear old Aunt Lavinia, played to perfection by Nancy Robinette. Romance, in whatever form it takes, is her trolley – with or without consideration for the consequences, and her romantic meddling knows no boundaries. And then there’s Morris. A wellmeaning cousin, Arthur Townsend (Nathan Whitmer), and his fiancée,

Marian, (Lorene Chesley) bring Morris under the Sloper roof for his first meeting with Catherine. (They are not, it is whispered, of the aristocratic branch of Townsends.) Jonathan Martin as Morris is disarming and earnest and just humble enough, even as his eyes linger a little too long on the fine crystal and handsome furnishings. Sure, he’s moving fast, but it’s love! Everyone, especially Catherine, delights in her chance for happiness at last. Everyone, that is, except that grumpy cynic, her father the doctor. Ivania Stack’s sumptuous mid-19th century costumes reflect the manners and social restrictions of the era they represent. Movements are fluid and erect, graceful at sitting and having tea, or working embroidery – except for the efficient bustling in and out by Maria, the maid (Kimberly Schraf). Mikiko Macadams’ elegant drawing room and front parlor design complete with imposing staircase and warmed with Sherrice Mojgani’s lighting wants no detail to bring us moment by moment into every scene. This 1947 play adaptation – and its Arena production - successfully distills the very essence of “Washington Square’s” conflict and character from the multifacetted cast of personalities to the final jolting, pounding on the door. A definite “don’t miss!" Maggie Lawrence is a member of the American Theatre Critics Association. She is a retired English and drama teacher.

A D.C. staple is now available in Culpeper. Pap’s Cafe, owned by Patricia Robertson and located at 106 W. Cameron St. - the former home of Radishes and Roses, is offering fried chicken wings with mumbo sauce. Mumbo sauce - a sweet and savory sauce - is an ingredient Robertson picked up living in D.C. for 40 some years, one that she brings home to Culpeper where natives may recognize her from her grandmother’s restaurant. Long’s Diner was located at the old bus station at the Depot, and Robertson fondly recalls hanging out at the diner and watching her grandmother cook. Returning home, she was ready to open her own restaurant. “I always thought about it and I’m not getting any younger,” Robertson said. “I thought I would try it.” She found the old Radishes and Roses location when she came looking to buy equipment, but found the whole location for sale. “I had been looking for a place, I came in by accident,” Robertson said. She’s kept Radishes and Roses’ sandwich menu, but has added fried chicken wings in the mumbo sauce with either french fries or fried rice. Open at 8 a.m., they also serve breakfast with the “kitchen sink” being a favorite. It features

three eggs, a meat choice, fried potatoes and two pancakes. The southern style menu also features fried whiting during the day. Flanked by her niece, the restaurant exudes Southern hospitality. “Most people in our family are cooks,” Robertson said. Her great niece helped design a Facebook page for the business and she’s still getting a lot of people who are stopping by out of habit. “We’ve had a couple people come in thinking it was still Radishes and Roses,” Robertson said. “It’s been more (traffic) than I expected. Everyday we’re getting somebody different.”

MARCH IS COLON CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

USE YOUR HEAD TO COVER YOUR BUTT If you’re 50 or older, don’t wait to get a colonoscopy—the only test that can prevent colon cancer.

One of the smartest things to do when you turn 50 is to be screened for colon cancer. A colonoscopy can detect AND remove precancerous colon polyps all in one visit.

COLON CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

Advanced Digestive Care in Warrenton offers: • A welcoming environment and a full staff of board-certified GI doctors and professionals who are experts in colon screenings and digestive care. • Procedures that cost much less than those performed in hospitals.

Learn more at GetAColonScreen.com or call 1-844-GoGetScreen to schedule an appointment

• An experience that will have you in and out, and on your way back home, in a relatively short amount of time. • An Adenoma Detection Rate (ADR), the most widely accepted measure of quality for colonoscopies, that is well above national benchmarks—the higher the ADR, the greater the ability to identify precancerous polyps and save lives.
