Young Life Culpeper hosts golf tournament April 27 By Jeff Say

CULPEPER TIMES STAFF WRITER

Culpeper Young Life is ready to hit the links. The youth ministry will be hosting its annual golf tournament April 27 at Meadows Farm Golf Course beginning at 8 a.m. According to Culpeper Young Life Leader Will Orr, there are two options for golfers. One is to commit to raising $500 and be able to golf all day. The other is to register for a traditional 18-hole tournament, with teams of four and captain’s choice, beginning at 1 p.m. That costs $75 for an individual or $200 for a foursome. To sign up for the tournament, visit www.culpeper.younglife.org. If a business would like to sponsor hole, that costs $250. The annual golf tournament is one of two of Young Life’s biggest fundraisers, using the funds to pay for Orr’s salary, support and development of volunteers and the many programs the ministry offers. In the high schools, Young Life has eight volunteer leaders, with Culpeper Times Aug.middle 24-30,schools. 2017 another five in •the They also have a teen mom minis-

try, Young Lives, that adds another six volunteers. “Being in the schools, we want kids to know who we are,” Orr said. “When things happen, I want it to be like when a tragedy happens, a kid knows they can talk to their parents or talk to their young life leader. We hang out at the school and hopefully the kids know us as Young Life leaders.” Orr said that it’s important to form those relationships with students as Young Life serves as another support system within the schools. He mentioned a recent tragedy at Culpeper County High School, where he quickly received a call from a guidance counselor to be on alert. “I hope this shows what Young Life can do in the school,” Orr said. “I got a call from a guidance counselor at a school informing me that it had happened. They were just letting us know because they wanted us to come in. We’re a support system that kids know us and respect us and know we are there to listen to them. That’s the big thing, just listening.” While a Christian ministry, Orr explained that members don’t have to be part of a religion to join. “Young Life hopes to reach kids

Young Life Mulch Madness Fundraiser

Culpeper Young Life is partnering with JK Enterprise to kick off their annual Mulch Madness Fundraiser. This mulch is premium quality, double-shredded, hardwood dark much and black mulch. Students sell mulch by the 2 and 3 CU FT bag at competitive prices, and deliver it themselves, with the help of willing adult volunteers. It's a way for them to raise money to go to Young Life camp by providing a quality product and the sweat-equity of free delivery. Culpeper Young Life is a Christian ministry that values faith, friendship, and fun. Young Life leaders are actively investing time with students in Culpeper County high schools and middle schools to build lasting friendships and to help them live life to the fullest. Young Life is serious about adventure. Young Life’s summer camps are a testament to that. “Ask anybody who’s been to a Young Life camp how it was, and they will tell you they had the best week of their life,” says Will Orr, Area Director, Culpeper Young Life. The challenge for kids: the camp experience cost money. "We never want money to be a reason that one of our friends can’t go to camp. We tell them ‘If money is the issue then there is no issue’. And that’s why we sell mulch. That’s where the community comes in." says Orr. All money raised in the fundraiser goes to help kids go to camp, the goal is to raise $12,500. Orders will be received now through April 23 and will be delivered every Saturday in April. For more information or to place an order, call 540-219-8043 or email ylculpeper@gmail.com.

She brings her stories and songs to national and regional festivals, schools, universities, museums, libraries and performing arts centers throughout the United States and Canada, as well as local and national radio and television.

➤ Now under direction of Culpeper Wellness Foundation, club is keeping kids busy By Jeff Say

CULPEPER TIMES STAFF WRITER

Culpeper Sport and Fitness Club is participating in the youth movement. The longtime Culpeper business (formerly known as the Culpeper Sport and Racquet Club) is putting more of a focus on youth programs, ever since being purchased by Culpeper Wellness Foundation Sept. 1, 2017. Shari Landry, President, Culpeper Wellness Foundation, said that was a main part of the focus when CWF started discussing purchasing the business from Culpeper Sport and Fitness manager Preston Will. “We were looking to expand the Powell (Wellness) facility and discovered we were not going to be able to do that in the near term,” Landry said. “We wanted to expand our services, to serve more young people. There was an opportunity to purchase the business here.” Will, who has been a member since he was 5, was open to selling the business and has stayed on as manager. “I thought there was a great opportunity to combine forces, and do better for the community,” Will said. On a recent Wednesday groups of students took tennis lessons the green arti-

ficial indoor courts while other athletes participated in sports performance classes - focusing on agility, speed, strength and balance. They are also working with youth organizations like Kid Central and Young Life to partner on other programs. They recently hosted Young Life for a pickleball tournament and Kids Central will have 30 kids coming out each week. “We’re just starting to try to introduce more programs for youth,” Will said. “We’re inviting families to come participate in classes together.” Pickleball is like tennis, ping pong and beach paddle ball in one sport. Children play with a wiffleball play with a paddle on a miniature sized tennis court. Classes like pickleball appeal to the younger generation but the fitness club doesn’t stray too far from its roots as well, offering tennis lessons for a reasonable $7.50 per class per child. “What we try to do is keep the tennis for the little ones as reasonable as possible,” Will said. Their rates are also reasonable, $36 per month for a single plan, $65 a month for a couple and $73 a month for a family plan. Family plans also include daycare. Members at Powell Wellness Center can also purchase a total fitness package, providing them access to both facilities. “We offer scholarships for people here as well,” Landry said. “I think it’s not well-known. We have more people at Powell who take advantage of it.” Scholarships are offered for residents within 200 percent of the poverty line and ➤ See Club, Page 7


Culpeper Times • March 8-14, 2018 ➤ Club, from Page 6 below, for example a family of four at 200 percent above poverty line is $49,200. The 15 members of staff, including three full time, work with the young athletes to help prepare them for whatever sport they are interested in. Will, also Eastern View High School’s boys tennis coach, said that his team along with the Cyclones’ football team has been in. “We’re really just getting started and the word is just beginning to get out,” Landry said. “We really want to develop and offer activities for kids that they are interested in. If there’s nothing to do, tell us what you want.” Will pointed out that even if kids aren’t interested in sports, they can utilize the upstairs room at the club just to do homework, in an effort to get them acclimated to the facility. “The possibilities are really endless, we are only limited by our imagination,” Landry said. “We’re open to looking at developing anything that lets kids be more active and live a healthier lifestyle.”

Despite being in the community for 31 years, people still are often unaware the club exists. “Every day there’s somebody who comes by and says ‘I had no idea you were out here,’” Will said. “I was shocked at how many people didn’t know how many people didn’t know this was here,” Landry said. Other programs being discussed include Girls Acing Life (GALS), a program similar to Piedmont Girls on the Run Piedmont. “We’re going to piggyback off that a little bit and do some of the things they are doing,” Will said. Physical activity will be based around tennis and pickleball, while another component will focus on activities and mentoring. “This for us is really a pilot project to see if we can get kids engaged in activities,” Landry said. The fitness center is open Monday through Thursday from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is located at 19055 Industrial Road, Culpeper.

it. When she tries to share it with the people of China, it doesn’t sing and it’s song is stifled. After hearing from the Ancient Oriental Gods (Jason Komar and Alyssa Price), the emperor is visited by Darkness (Haley Sanchez) who convinces her to open her heart. “She saw there was no love in her heart, and the Nightingale was free to sing again,” Detwiler said. Edwards thanked the kindergarten students, A.G. principal Sue Bridges, Binns principal Nathan Bopp, kindergarten teacher Mary DeJarnette for coordinating the event and A.G. music teacher Chris Gibson and A.G. assistant principal Brock Hodgson for helping set up. “I’m so proud of you,” Edwards said to the sixth graders following the presentation. “You guys almost brought me to tears.”

K&M Lawn, Garden & Arborist Supplies contributes mower for annual Go For The Gold Sweepstakes By Sharon Hitt

K&M LAWN, GARDEN & ARBORIST SUPPLIES

Spring is right around the corner and Larry L. Bryant of Waynesboro will be ready. He was pleased to learn that his name had been called during the NBC Channel 29 6 p.m. news broadcast on February 27 as a winner in the Go For The Gold Sweepstakes. Mr. Bryant said he wasn’t home at the time and didn’t actually see the drawing, but when he walked in his door his phone was ringing telling him his name had been called. He didn’t waste any time calling to claim his prize – a new 48” Scag Freedom Z riding mower. Mr. Bryant said it currently takes him about 2-1/2 hours to mow his lawn with an older lawnmower so

he said the timing could not have been better because he was getting to the point when he was going to have to invest in a new mower. For the fifth year in a row K&M Lawn, Garden & Arborist Supplies has participated in the NBC Channel 29 Sweepstakes and has had the pleasure of giving away a Scag riding mower, and in fact K&M also gave away a Stihl trimmer in addition to the Scag mower. Buck Hitt, General Manager of K&M Lawn, Garden & Arborist Supplies said “Channel 29 is always great to work with and the drawing brings in fresh faces from surrounding counties.” Mr. Hitt said, “We are very appreciative of the support we receive from our distributors.” Chris Martinelli, Territory Manager from KPM, was on hand when

Time to prepare as spring nears So close you can smell it. Oh man I love this time of year. Daffodils and crocus pushing up through the cool soil giving us the first few flowers of spring. Forsythia and fruit trees showing off their vibrant flowers. Grasses turning green, maples showing buds. Dogwood and Red buds preparing for the show. The fragrant sent of spring filling the air. The world is waking up, stretching out, and asking "Are you ready?". What will your answer be? Will you take the time to enjoy this spring? Will you look around you? Will you take a moment to breath deep and let the warm sweet air of spring fill your lungs? Will you take in the beauty that is spring in Virginia. I hope you answer yes to at least one of these. I hope you take every opportunity to enjoy every moment of your life and the world that surrounds you. We will not get today back, take advantage of the moments within it.

OUTDOOR OUTLOOK

Donald Sherbeyn

It's easy to forget this is supposed to be an article about what to do in your landscape this month. So.. its March, What would you like to do in your landscape this month? Pretty good chance if you want to, in March you can. For me March is typically the first time I really start getting into the beds and the lawn. Gardening in spring is an open canvas we can move plants, install new plants, add new lawns or cut out lawn to make new bed space. We can plant trees or build new outdoor spaces we will use throughout the year. A few must does on my list for march each year are as follows. Beds: Inspect all planting, Edge and clean, treat with systemic all in one, install pre emergent herbicides as needed and mulch as needed. When mulching you only need 3-4 inches of total mulch in your beds, more than this can be harmful to your plantings. Mulching early means you get everything done before most of the perennials start popping through the soil. Lawn: Inspect lawn, determine if weeds

are an issue or if new turf is needed. (Its almost impossible to deal with both of these issues properly at the same time) Aerate, seed, and fertilizer * or* treat for problematic weed. Many weeds can be dealt with later in the season but new seed won't be as easy to get growing so depending on your exact issue it may be a good idea to go ahead and get that lawn jumping now and worry about the weeds later. Mature trees: Inspect and treat issues if found. If winter or wind damage is present I recommend contacting a good licensed arborist to have the issues dealt with. There are tree companies that specialize in the removal of trees. These same companies may not be as good at corrective pruning as they might be at removal. If pruning is done wrong serious damage can

be done to trees. As with anything Choose the right professional for the project at hand. In Landscaping, Hardscapeing, Aquascaping and Landscape maintenance the right pro should be chosen for their knowledge. Don't be afraid to ask the tuff questions and be sure the pro you are about to hire actually knows what they are supposed to be doing for that hard earned money you are about to pay them. Life rule #2 Things happen we cannot control, We can however control how we react to them. Choose to react in a positive way. Donald Sherbeyn is the owner of Sherbeyn’s Landscape.

Culpeper Times • March 8-14, 2018

➤ CCCMA, from Page 14 and his congregation has been instrumental in the organization of many events in the Culpeper community. During his three-year term as president Kalenga plans to encourage the CCCMA to spear head some of these community events. “I want to bridge the gap between our community and the association,” said Kalenga adding, “I want them (CCCMA) involved in the community”. He hopes to be able to have the CCCMA step into that role this year. Originally organized as the Culpeper County Ministerial Association (CCMA), the group recently added “Christian” to their name becoming CCCMA. During a recent conversation Kalenga expressed concern that some members wanted to become more inclusive and invite others into the association. He referred to the association’s vision which he said is “to unite Christian pastors. To provide a place where pastors will encourage and support each other and other ministries in our community.” Stressing the word pastors and Christian he added, “It’s one thing to have collaborations and other religious sects or entities included but when it comes to fellowship with fellow believers we want to come together and pray together in Jesus’ name,” said Kalenga. He went on to clarify that Christians pray in the name of Jesus and oth-

ers pray in other ways therefore the group becomes no longer unified. “The CCCMA is a fellowship of people in the same sect so we have to be a little selective,” said Kalenga about the unity of the association. He is quick to add that as a community member, a local pastor and the president of the CCCMA, he has no judgement about different beliefs, religions or entities. “It’s not a problem working with others during times of crisis or community problems but we [CCCMA] are a Christian group coming together, and meeting, with each other.” As president of the CCCMA Kalenga said, “I will reach out to other organizations during my term. Our fellowship with each other inside the association is different than getting together with others in the community of different faiths.” Unity comes up often when Kalenga speaks of his church family, other churches, the community and the organization he currently leads. “I am very optimistic. This year we are going to do a lot for God; the churches as well as the CCCMA.” He said, “we ALL have to work together to get things done,” and he wants the members of the CCCMA to come together to deal with community and socioeconomic issues. Currently the association is planning a prayer breakfast for community and business leaders in March. Kalenga invites any local Christian pastor seeking more information about the CCCMA to contact him at erick@hisvillage.org.

VIEWS

'Teen Talks' stresses importance of listening

THE FINAL SAY Jeff Say

Just listen. Sometimes, it’s hard to do in our society. We’ve been trained over the years that we all have an opinion, we all have a voice, and we all need to be heard. However, it’s hard to be heard when everyone is speaking over each

other. That’s why it was refreshing to just sit and listen to the members of Culpeper Youth talk to the community Wednesday night at “Teen Talks,” at Eastern View High School’s forum. Designed as a way to have an open, honest conversation with peers and adults, the discussion was frank, heartbreaking and ultimately uplifting. As I said, it can be hard to listen. As adults, we often feel we have all the answers. We’ve been through tumultuous times, we’ve dealt with adversity, so we believe teens should listen to us and take our advice and they’ll turn out just fine. It’s a two-way street, we need to take our own advice and listen as well. So I sat on Wednesday, surrounded by young people and community leaders as the Culpeper Youth members addressed serious issues that were brought to light recently through a student survey at Culpeper County Public Schools. Students talked about depression and anxiety, bullying and body image, and all of the related issues. As parents, we know that educators see our children just as much as we do, so often times we have to rely on them to be aware of warning signs that students are suffering from anxiety or depression. “Anxiety and depression are pervasive,” Eastern View High School counselor Michael Baird said. “As educators we talk with students everyday dealing with these issues. It’s not our job to diagnosis anxiety or depression, that’s in the hands of a licensed mental health professional. We are aware of the signs of students struggling. The best way to know if students are struggling are by making connections and building relationships.” For Culpeper County High School

Members of Culpeper Youth take questions from the community during "Teen Talks," held Feb. 28 at Eastern View High School's Forum. The teens talked about issues affecting them in school - including anxiety and depression, bullying and self image. junior Shifa Tewari, those connections could have helped if an educator would have listened to her with an incident she faced in the ninth grade. She explained about how a friend was called to the office, and he handed her a knife he had snuck into school to deal with a bully who had threatened him. The incident turned to be a trap by another student, she and her friend were both discovered with the knife and she was suspended for 364 days. She ended up going to the Annex and stayed there for eight months before being let back into school. “It was in my bag for five minutes, and those five minutes changed my life,” Tewari said. “I’m not saying what I did was right, because I know it wasn’t. In the time between the incident and going to the annex, I was thrown into a whirlpool of blame, over the top consequences and guilt. Not once did anyone ask me how I was handling things and I felt awful.” She suffered from anxiety and

depression and struggled. This is where we, as adults, need to step forward and listen, to understand and hear the students’ side of things. It was a common thread among the student speakers on Wednesday night. When talking about bullying, Hayden Zarn talked about how she has been bullied since the time she could be without her parents at her side. Other kids wouldn’t want to play with her and she would cry everyday after school in the hopes that she wouldn’t go back. It didn’t get any better as she progressed through school, as teachers weren’t sympathetic and kids remained cruel. At one point, she attempted to kill herself in the eighth grade, thankfully she survived and decided to live her life her way - dressing the way she wanted and listening to music that resonated with her like My Chemical Romance and Thursday. “The bullying has stopped,” the CCHS junior said. “I still have anxiety and depression and I’m still afraid to go

places in public because of the way I’ve been treated in the past.” I’ve been out of high school for 20 years, and while not on the level of some of these students, I’ve had experiences with bullying and being put down. I’ve watched as these students have grown up, thinking it’s better now than it was when I was in school - but it’s not. They still deal with the same issues and feel the same way I did - lost, confused, hopeless. As a community, we can help. We can listen. We don’t have to tell them what to do, how to do it or chastise them for their mistakes. We can simply listen, offer a hug and be supportive. Wednesday’s “Teen Talk” was a step in the right direction. Nearly 100 community members came out to hear the concerns, praise these students for speaking up and make connections. If we truly want our youth to be our future, we need to help protect and help them. We can do that by listening.

We're getting too politically correct I would like to take this time to show America how looney we have gotten with political correctness. It is the bain of our existence. Everything is based on this inane philosophy that people are tongue-tied with a furrowed brow and wringing hands. No one in the future will be able to communicate for fear of offending someone or something. This is a sickness. Here are 11 reasons to prove the point compiled by Kathryn Timpf: 1. It was declared “cultural appropriation” for a white woman to wear hoop earrings at Pitzer College. 2. Berkeley students claimed they did not have enough “privilege” to take their exam in class. 3. Evergreen State College told professors to take students’ feelings into account when grading them. 4. Certain kinds of eyebrows were deemed “cultural appropriation” at LSU.

DR. TOM NEVIASER

How I See It

5. The size of chairs was declared a “microaggression” against the overweight at The New School, a private college in New York City. 6. A city councilman was concerned that hosing poop-covered sidewalks might be culturally insensitive in Seattle “because it brought back images of the use of hoses against civil-rights activists.” 7. The University of Arizona hired students, “social-justice activists,” to tattle on each other. 8. A British student union tried to ban clapping and cheering because it was not inclusive to deaf people. The instructed participants to use “jazz hands” instead — as if they don’t even realize how exclusive that could be for blind people. 9. Expecting people to be on time was declared “culturally insensitive” at Clemson University because “time may be more fluid in other cultures?” 10. Authors were hiring “sensitivity readers” to problematic-proof their novels to make sure that they don’t portray fictional characters from other communities in an inaccurate way. 11. A social-justice math class taught participants how “math has been used as a dehumanizing tool.” 12. And recently, a Corsicana,

Texas city council, sighting “a surge of complaints” about a park statue of a gorilla in one of the cage jungle gyms (present there for 19 years) was offensive to some, removed the gorilla that children had dubbed King Kong and played around for years. “We can understand this, because we have an obligation to listen to all our citizens, to determine what is offensive and not, especially in public places” was one of the council’s response. So, for the complaints of a few, hundreds of those not offended are ignored. If you can find any rational and logical reasoning behind any of these, you may just want to reevaluate your priorities. Some of the items above are just pure silliness and others are seriously considered to be very far over the top, but they all show a worrisome tendency for people who find just about anything “offensive” are able to convince powers-that-be to remove or destroy something without the input of others who do not find anything offensive about it. To do so is to either knowingly or unknowingly divide people even more than they are. The squeaky wheel does not always need to be oiled first or be considered the most important.

2018 General Assembly Session Legislative Agenda Delegate Nick Freitas (R-Culpeper) is very encouraged about the progress his bills are making in this year’s session. “He is very proud to serve the people from his community.” The Delegate is focusing on a multitude of issue that are of great concern to his constituents, as well as all Virginians. A few of his Bills that he would like Highlighted are : HB 900 Protects the liberty and property of all Virginians and places 4th Amendment protections back into the Code by requiring a criminal conviction before the government can sell your property. HB 901 Allows for an expedited permit process for highspeed internet and other communication providers, so that we can expand broadband into rural areas. HB 543 Places special emphasis on the leasing of surplus government property to charitable organization providing addiction recovery services. HB 533 Requires our state agencies to better inform our veterans as to the benefits and job opportunities they have in the Commonwealth as they transition out of the military.

FROM THE DESK OF

Nick Freitas

HB 544 Provides a path to establish more High School Apprenticeship programs HB 532 Drastically reduces the current restrictions on the cultivation and sale of industrial hemp, which would give rural Virginia access to a new cash crop that could economically revive the central and southern regions of the Commonwealth. HB 883 (Co Patron with Mike Webert) Establishes a pilot program whereby we can drastically reduce onerous and outdated regulatory burdens on our entrepreneurs and business owners. HB 532 Significantly reduces the onerous tax burden placed on our distillers who currently pay 54% of every in-store sale to the government. As a member of the Finance Committee, my focus remains on keeping taxes low and making sure that taxpayer dollars are expended only for legitimate functions of the government. This year alone dozens of Democratic tax increase proposals that would have raised taxes on hardworking Virginians by over $770 million has been voted down. We loudly voiced our opposition against a tax on Uber and Lyft that Democrats in the senate purposed. We also opposed House Bill 1051 introduced by Democrat Delegate Watts which would have instituted a tax on Streaming video services such as Netflix, Hulu

and Pandora. Regulatory reform, too often regulations imposed by Washington or Richmond end up restricting the ability of free people to enter the marketplace and provide for their families and communities. The regulatory reform pilot program (HB 883 Webert) This legislation establishes a regulatory reform program with a goal to reduce or streamline regulatory requirements by 25% over the next 3 years. sincerely believe that Americans are through with government interference in every aspect of our lives. As your Delegate, my mission has been to take power out of the hands of politicians and bureaucrats and place it back into the hands of the people. I am happy to report that this session, much progress has been made on that front. Combating the Opioid Crisis during this session, the house Republican Caucus carried and passed seven pieces of legislation to help end the Opioid Crisis. Substance-exposed infants (HB1157 Pillion) This legislation builds on the creation of the substance-exposed infants workgroup last year, which held regional town halls across the commonwealth to receive input from local stakeholders. The plan adds a trauma-informed approach to Identify and treat of substance-exposed infants and improves screening and Identification of substance-using pregnant women.

Country Shoppes of Culpeper celebrates 25 years By Jeff Say

CULPEPER TIMES STAFF WRITER

Country Shoppes of Culpeper will be a quarter century old this year. The longtime antique and collectibles store along U.S. 29, owned by Lois Alperstein, has weathered the economic storm by keeping regulars coming back and attracting travelers visiting from Charlottesville and Washington, D.C. The 17,000 square foot store features more than 100 dealers that offer antiques, collectibles, primitives, jewelry, Civil War pieces and much more. Walking into the store, customers are greeted by manager Terri Crawford with a friendly “good morning,” and then they are immersed in a cavalcade of collectibles. On your left are baseball and football cards, directly in front of you are primitives and home decor and the offerings just grow as you walk through the store. It’s the dealers who search out unique items that keep the store thriving. ➤ See Shoppes, Page 23

Culpeper Times • March 8-14, 2018

➤ Shoppes, from Page 22 “We still have some original dealers from the beginning,” Crawford said. “They rent the spaces from us. We give them a dealer code and everything that comes up front, we take care of.” Alperson started the business 25 years ago after her husband made contact with Ed Reeves at MinuteMan Mini Mall and Reeves helped the couple get the business going. Alperstein and her husband had collected for years and have been up and down the East Coast scouting, so setting up shop in Culpeper only made sense. The business has grown over the years, thanks to the work of the vendors, Alperstein said. “I expanded the store the last several years, took an additional 1,500 square feet,” Alperstein said. “We’ve really had a lot of vendors for a very long time. A lot of them have stayed with us for a while, they are exceedingly loyal to us. We are very grateful for that.” The longtime customers, obviously, have played a big role as well. “We always thank them for being part of the Country Shoppes family,” Alperstein said. She credits the staff, two fulltimers and four to five part timers, for their dedication to customer service. “We have an amazing staff who

are on top of their game, and are very friendly,” Alperstein said. She can’t believe that it’s been 25 years. “I keep pinching myself, that this is absurd,” Alperstein said. “This wasn’t a whim, but close to it in a way. I’ve really enjoyed it.” After 25 years, there is still a pull to the past that keeps people coming back. Crawford said it’s normal for people to walk in and exclaim “I remember my mom or grandma having this.” “The love for antiques and collectibles is still strong,” Crawford said. Over 25 years, the styles people have looked for have changed - from country to vintage - but people still want that connection to their past and they love to collect. There’s been thousands of pieces come through their doors over the years, many unique furniture pieces and Civil War finds that the dealer digs up himself. “You never know what he’s going to find,” Crawford said. In the Civil War and military booth, now sits a pair of artillery shells - certainly a conversation piece. Regulars stop in once or twice a week, knowing that the vendors constantly find something new. “They know the dealers are always changing out their booth,” Crawford said. “They come in and

do their walk through.” Crawford said it’s fun to meet all the families that come in through the door. The store is open Tuesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 12 to 5 p.m. On May 12, there will be a spring event celebrating their 25 years of existence and on Dec. 1 will be their an-

nual Christmas open house. Crawford said that it’s been a team effort to be able to celebrate 25 years. “Through the recession, a lot of antiques closed up and we’re still thriving,” Crawford said. “It’s a testament to our dealers, to our loyal customers. It’s a combination of everything.”

Often mountainous soils are rocky and not as rich, leading to more stress and lower yields for the vines, giving a bit more concentration to the grapes that are produced. The higher elevation also has a cooler climate, creating a longer growing season. This longer hang time gives the grapes more time to develop adding more extracted flavors. This super fun red comes with a very appealing range of characteristics, from soft and fruity to robust, with lots of tannin. Again, it all depends on how it’s grown in terms of location, elevation, grape yields and the winemaking process. Generally, the wines are full-bodied with moderate acidity; the pronounced aromatics and fruit flavors stretch from raspberry to richer black cherry and plum and there’s usually a distinctive peppery spice. You can compare it to a few more mainstream grape varieties like merlot, grenache or tempranillo. The layers of fruit and spice are elegant with a round velvety texture to embrace your palate. While it’s a pleasure to just drink, it’s also very food friendly. It’s divine with classic Greek eggplant moussaka, a charcuterie board with plenty of olives or seared duck breast with polenta and lingonberry sauce. Fear not the name and give this luscious red a try. Opa! Kim Kelly is the owner of Vinosity in downtown Culpeper, she can be reached at kimkelly1@hughes.net
