Culpeper County Sheriff signs 287(g) agreement ➤ Hispanic groups express outrage at new jail program By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer Culpeper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins signed an agreement Tuesday to enforce the 287g program through the office of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in the Culpeper County jail. The decision has been met with vocal opposition from Hispanic groups in Culpeper County who feel the program puts an undeserved target on their population. On Saturday, those groups held a rally at Yowell Meadow Park to oppose the signing of the agreement. The program, one of ICE's top partnership initiatives, allows a state or local law enforcement entity to enter into a partnership with ICE, under a joint Memorandum of Agreement, in order to receive delegated authority for immigration enforcement within their jurisdictions. Jenkins on Tuesday refuted the claims of the groups opposing the

program, insisting he has the community’s safety only in mind. “My message is simple today, just last week we had a detective out of state assisting on a federal investigation, that’s not unusual for us,” Jenkins said. “We cooperate and regularly work with federal authorities. The ICE agreement is just another example of our cooperation with federal law enforcement.” Monica Sarmiento, executive director, Virginia Coalition for Immigrant Rights, a collaborative of 25 organizations in commonwealth of Virginia, said the program will “turn off” the Hispanic community to Culpeper. “We are here in opposition of the 287(g) agreement which is a blatant manipulation from the sheriff’s office, to intimidate specifically the minority communities of Culpeper,” Sarmiento said. “This is an illogical proposal of an agreement.” Jenkins responded Tuesday, reiterating that the program will only affect illegal immigrants who are jailed in the Culpeper County jail. “Persons with an agenda will continue to attack the 287(g) pro-

illegally, have never committed a crime in Culpeper that have caused them to enter the jail population. “If your poor decisions cause you to enter our jail, after already being an illegal guest in our community, then I cannot understand why you think you shouldn’t be handed over to ICE through this new screening ➤ See ICE, Page 4

Shifa Tewari (Editor's note: This is weekly series highlighting members of Culpeper's Youth Council. To join Culpeper Youth, go to www. to apply.) As a contestant in the Miss Culpeper pageant, I had a lot to think about. First, how would this impact me as a person? Second, how will this benefit me? And third, what will I remember this pageant as? As the pageant is rapidly approaching, these questions have slowly been answered. As a person who had self esteem issues, this pageant has helped me gain confidence in myself. For the past few weeks, I have become happier with myself and opened up more. I will remember this as an event that helped me love myself. Not only am I confident, but I'm proud of the person I've become. Pageants aren't just an event for girls to flounce around in pretty dresses, but a good way for us to find our strengths.

➤ ICE, from Page 2 process we’re about to implement,” Jenkins said. He signed the agreement Tuesday in memory of Zulma Alvarez, a young woman who, along with her unborn child, was killed by an illegal immigrant who was driving drunk on Sept. 6, 2012. Alvarez’s family took umbrage with the fact their daughter’s name was used to promote 287(g). “(I’m) very uncomfortable with the use of my daughter’s memory in this way,” Jose Alvarez, her father, said through an interpreter. “It's very unfair, because I am a longtime resident of Culpeper, that the sheriff would use his name in this way, to benefit and support a program I don’t agree with.” Alvarez said no one from the sheriff’s office reached out to him prior to the announcement and his family was not invited to the ceremony. “My heart goes out to her family, at the same time she is one of many victims and we reference those on a daily basis when speak about topics such as this,” Jenkins said. “I feel so sorry for the entire family and I had no intent to stir up emotions or hurt them in any way. It touches me, that was the first death in my term of sheriff.” Jenkins referenced Alvarez as

many of the victims that he “has blood on his hands for,” also referencing Milton Eduardo Grijalva, who was killed at Sisk Field in Brandy Station in a violent attack at a soccer match. Five illegal immigrants were charged with the crime and were jailed in connection with his death. “We convicted those people, one got a sentence of a year or two, was deported and in less than a year is back in Culpeper and under arrest by the town police for assault under a different name,” Jenkins said. “I saw him, I stumbled upon him at the magistrate's office.” Now, Jenkins hopes that those occurrences will be lessened by the agreement with ICE. Matthew Albence. Executive Associate Director, Enforcement and Removal Operations said the partnership, of which there are now 76 nationally with another three expected in the coming month, is a “force multiplier.” “You ask any law enforcement professional at any level of state, local or federal government if they have enough resources to do their jobs, and they’re going to tell you no,” Albence said. “That's why these partnerships are so important. Because now, with the great help of Sheriff Jenkins and those officers in the jail, they’ll be able to screen individuals who are foreign born

who are being put into that jail in violation of a criminal statute.” The program will train four deputies at first, with another two expected later. The basic training occurs in Charleston, S.C., and Jenkins said he is unsure when it will begin. He said that command staff officers will serve in place of the deputies who will be away on training, in a show of solidarity and in an effort to combat expensive overtime. Sophia Gregg, Attorney, Immigrant Advocacy Program, Legal Aid Justice Center, said last week that the sheriff’s actions will cause serious repercussions in Culpeper. “When someone is brought into jail they may be screened and subject to deportation,” Gregg said. “The sheriff will no longer have control over the deputies in their day to day activities as an acting ice authority.” Jenkins refuted the claim, saying he will still control the deputies. “That’s false, deputy sheriff’s serve at the pleasure of the sheriff,” Jenkins said. “This program being implemented, yes they’ll fall under the guidelines and conduct as ICE dictates for their program. I would compare it to the use of the state and federal criminal information network that we utilize each day. The officers will already be on

duty will just add some more work when it comes to these situations with these illegal aliens. It’s not a complicated process, it’s simply a screening process.” Jenkins also stressed that the program is a jail model only and will not impact any deputies at a street level. “It’s unfortunate we have people spreading fear that it’s a street level program, which it is not,” Jenkins said. “I can’t emphasize enough, it’s strictly concerning those who are arrested for other crimes and are in our jail. Once you are in our jail, you would be subjected to this screening process. I think it’s unfortunate that we have so many law abiding residents of our community who are being put in fear that we are somehow going to change how we do our business day to day.” Gregg said that the Legal Aid Justice Center will be keeping a close eye on the county and the program. “From our point of view, we will be watching the sheriff very closely,” Gregg said. “We will be watching not only the financial impact on Culpeper, but also the human impact and how this program is carried out. When and if the legal issue presents itself, we will be there. We want the sheriff to know, this doesn’t end on the 24th.”

Monica Huseby, owner of Prophetic Beauty, applies makeup at the Prom Princess program, sponsored by Alaska Airlines in Sitka, Alaska.

Prophetic Beauty spreads message of positivity By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer Monica Huseby wants women to know they’re beautiful - inside and out. The owner of Prophetic Beauty in Culpeper is spreading her message of positivity and love nationwide, having recently returned from Sitka, Alaska, after having participated in the 10th annual Prom Princess program, sponsored by Alaska Airlines. The program takes students from Mt. Edgecomb High School, a boarding school in Sitka, and provides a prom for them. Huseby was invited by a friend of hers who she knew years ago from working at Estee Lauder. About 260 students attend the high school and while their education is paid for, they cannot afford special events like proms and many of their family members (who would traditionally help prepare them) are miles away. That’s when Huseby and other professionals volunteer their time to help give these students a prom. “It was overwhelming,” Huseby said. “The best part was I was able to bring my 10-year-old daughter.” Huseby ended up providing Prophetic Beauty makeup - makeup that she calls “as organic as you can get without refrigerating it” - to 21 students. “You had some that were very grateful to hear it and you had some that were very honest that said things like ‘I’ve always felt so ugly,’” Huseby said. “I would literally grab their hands and tell them how special and worthy they are. I knew then that’s why I was called to go.” Prophetic Beauty started two and a half years ago after the company she worked for closed. Her friends, knowing her background of working as a makeup artist for

almost 20 years, encouraged her to take her knowledge and brand her own makeup line. Working with a vendor out of the U.S., Huseby started her line but made sure to incorporate the positive message of empowering women. “Bigger than that it was a message for me,” Huseby. “I wanted to sit women in the chair and make sure they understood they were beautiful from the day they were born. That they are are created special, worthy, unique and enough.” Prophetic Beauty is at its core a Christian-based company, but Huseby says her message can speak to any woman to teach them to love themselves and to teach them from where their beauty comes from. The recent emphasis on empowering women and movements such as “Me Too,” has emboldened her message. “It’s as if it’s just backing me from everything I’m saying and doing,” Huseby said. She’s worked with SAFE to help provide makeup to women working with the abuse organization and helped at “Night to Shine,” the Tim Tebow event at Open Door Baptist Church in Culpeper. “That began me realizing I wanted to pour more into it and give back,” Huseby said. Her message is one that young women need to hear, she said, as society starts to become bullies earlier now. “I think it starts at a really young age,” Huseby said. “Young girls start looking in the mirror and loving on themselves and trying on jewelry and playing dress up, to going to not being able to look at themselves in the mirror anymore. I think a lot of it comes from social pressure at school. It’s happening at recess and lunch time, you just ➤ See Beauty, Page 9

C.R. Farms LLC looking for investors to produce A2 milk By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer Josh Colvin wakes up in the morning and asks himself a hard question. “Why am I doing this to myself again.” It’s a question the dairy farmer has become familiar with as it become increasingly difficult to make ends meet. The owner of C.R. Farms LLC, Colvin has a family of six, more than 60 cows and two jobs to tend to. “It’s not fun anymore,” he said. “When you can’t pay your bills it’s not fun. You get up and go to work knowing you’re not going to pay the bills for that day.” He drives truck on the side, but his passion is still for the family-run dairy farm and the cows he has a soft spot for in his heart. That’s why he’s looking for help. He sees the future, he knows he has the cows that can produce it and he’s hoping investors can get onboard to help him live the dream. Colvin has been breeding cows to produce A2 milk for 15 years, before there was even a market for it. He now sells his milk to Organic Valley, but it’s just organic, not rated for A2 - yet. His dream is to bottle and process his own milk at the land he rents off Threlkeld Lane in Brandy Station, but he needs money to do it. The harsh reality is that farming takes more money than it used to. A longtime dairy farmer, Colvin remembers the words his friend David Burton from Calverton told him. “He said ‘If you can ever get to where you had an extra milk check, you’ll be doing good,’” Colvin said. “Now it takes two extra milk checks.” His truck driving endeavors help some, but that also means he’s away from the farm, leaving his wife Anna to handle the milking responsibilities. He sees hope on the horizon

though, when he can go back to just one job, as long as he can convince investors to see the future of A2 milk. Seeing the future with A2 A2 milk is cow's milk that mostly lacks a form of B-casein proteins called A1 and instead has mostly the A2 form. Colvin recognized the advantages and the trends 15 years ago when he started to breed heifers to produce A2 milk. “I’ve been breeding for A2 milk for close to 15 years,” Colvin said. “When I first started breeding A2 milk, there was only one sire company, Select Sires. They were the only ones that would talk to me about A2. I feel A2 milk is something we need to really look at.” Colvin hasn’t had his cows tested yet, because there’s no market available. Once the market presents itself locally, he said he’s prepared to have his cows tested and be certified as an A2 producer. The trick is having enough cows to produce enough milk to satisfy the demand. At the moment, he’s milking 66 cows. His dream is to bottle and process his own milk, but that will need capital. He estimates that the initial investment will be $1.5 million and it will take three years to be in the black financially. “When we get to that point, I want to get investors interested in it,” Colvin said. “We’re ready to go to A2, but if I don’t have enough A2 to satisfy my market there is a small group of farmers in Pennsylvania that have been breeding for A2 as well.” They receive about 20 pounds of milk per cow per week, which is impressive considering he’s strictly grazing on grass at the moment. He said he does feed grain when there’s ➤ See Milk, Page 7

a fescue shortage or if the cows need more energy. He also believes in more holistic methods with the cows as well. “Genetics make a big difference whether or not you can get cows to perform on milk,” Colvin said. “One thing I’ve learned, especially with grass cows, I keep my heifers with their mom until they’re 10 months old. They come off the cow, and three or four months later they’re bred. It makes a better cow.” The cows feed on the native fescue grasses, some orchard grass and clover. His goal is breed a cow by two years, though that’s not a hard and fast rule - it depends on the cow. “We need to learn to work with nature and not try to change a bunch of stuff,” Colvin said. “It is hard to make milk on fescue, right now it’s easy but talk to me in six weeks from now and it’s going to be hard.” The cows at CR Farm are kept in the field except for when they come to the barn to milk, as Colvin explained that they are most comfortable in weather when it’s zero to 40 degrees. In the summer, they move the cows around to pastures with shade during the hot afternoons and then to a pasture with no shade in the evenings. “The only shelter these cows have is the barn they milk in,” Colvin said. “In the winter it can be a management nightmare, but they’re meant to be outside. The only time I get greatly concerned is when we have ice.” How do you know when to move a herd of cows? It’s not easy, he said. “That’s hard learning, when, where and how to move a cow,” Colvin said. “It’s an art. You can kind of set the rule but you need to be able to come out and say ‘they should have more grass’ so the next time you move the fence 10 or 20 more feet. Then they get that much more grass to eat.” Colvin believes in being a good steward to the land, pointing out fence improvements and processes to keep water clean. “If money comes up, we need to make upgrades,” Colvin said. “The upgrades will be a better stewardship of managing the resources we have.”

Colvin’s milk leaves the farm and goes to H.B. Hood in Winchester, where it’s processed for Organic Valley. “The other thing I really like organic milk, is that organic pays a whole lot more for a quality premium,” Colvin said. “If you send them a better quality product, they will pay you more money. That makes a great deal difference in my eyes.” How to help It’s a family affair for the Colvins, as his mother Margaret Rhodes, points out. His wife Anna tends to the cows and their four children - Susanna, 8, Phillip, 7, Myrtl, 3, and newborn Woodie. Despite the long hours and financial hardships, Anna beams when talking about the pride they take in their work. “I wouldn’t trade it,” Anna said. “It means the world to me.” They’ve never had to send the kids to daycare, which is nice because when you farm for dairy, there’s always other expenses. Josh’s hope is if they can get big enough, they can help other local small farmers. Josh stands in his kitchen, talking about feasibility studies, genetics and logistics. He grins, knowing that’s not the stereotype of a farmer, but he explains that if you want to be successful you have to know all facets of the business. “You wouldn’t expect me to come up and hand you a feasibility study,” Josh said with a laugh.“I’ve had a lot of people look at you like ‘what does he know?’ I’ve gained a lot of respect at corporate meetings by being able to know the business side of it and know the math parts of it.” He’s quick to point out he’s had plenty of help - from Select Sires and Organic Valley, from the extension offices in Culpeper and Fauquier counties and from other farmers. It’s a fraternity that’s dwindling - and conventional or organic farm - they stick together. If investors are interested in learning more about the farm and how they can help, contact or call Rhodes at 540-636-4402. “If a consumer wants to know what they can do to help, it’s drink milk,” Colvin said.

Cecilia Dohm, works for Fauquier County Public Schools through the PATH Foundation’s FRESH program and serves as Allegro’s choreographer for musical theatre productions and instructor for its dance classes. Production directors rotate depending on the show chosen, and have included Warrenton’s Kevin Mettinger and Hannah Butler, both professional acting coaches and actors themselves. All of Allegro’s theatre department instructors have a degree or two in the thespian arts and related fields, and many have professional performance experience.

York – to lead student workshops. Before launching Allegro Community Players in 2016, Allegro had already put several productions on stage. Co-founders and owners, Sam and Lachelle Yoder know a thing or two about theatre production themselves. They met while working on a multi-level musical theatre production in Manassas at their church. All Allegro classes to date have been taught in Allegro’s 3,000 square foot building. Historically, Allegro rents stage space for its performances from a Fauquier school. “As a non-profit, Allegro’s purpose is to serve the community through the arts the best we can,” says Yoder.

A musical crescendo Allegro began its theatre instruction four years ago, offering an after school drop-in class, called theatre gym. It was taught by a Fauquier County High School drama teacher and quickly gained popularity. Around that same time, Allegro began a three week summer theatre camp with professional direction that culminated in a theatrical production for the community. In recent years, because of the success of the summer camp, Allegro has brought actors and musical theatre coaches – from Hollywood and New

Growing into 2018 Allegro plans to offer dance with an eye to musical theatre beginning this winter, starting with basic ballet and music theatre choreography, and perhaps launching a show choir. This musical theatre program has always been open to children, teenagers and adults, ages 11 and up, however, theatre classes are broken down more specifically by age. Current enrollment is open for ages 5-18. “Our ballet classes are designed ➤ See Allegro, Page 12

➤ Allegro, from Page 11 to give students a solid base in order to allow them to move to all genres of dance. Our objective is not to produce classical ballerinas, but to give students a solid foundation of skills, technique and stamina to take on the music and dance of theatre,” said Dohm. It takes a village This past fall, Allegro became the joyful beneficiary of a wardrobe on lend, complete with handmade costumes for every character in the 22-actor ensemble, to round out the colorful musical. As in community theatre, volunteers work feverishly to build and paint the sets. Most details, such as make-up artistry and marketing is donated time as well. The Allegro Community Players currently rehearse in the Allegro space, located at the corner of Main and Culpeper streets. Many Allegro families walk to lessons or grab a bite to eat on Main Street before or after a class. “We are so grateful for everything we have,” says Lachelle. “We have been blessed with an amazing location and terrific volunteers.” Allegro has seen community interest for musical theatre productions and plays of all genres throughout the year here in Fau-

quier – both from participants and patrons. The school system offers a variety of shows performed by their own theatre programs year-round, and community orchestral, band, dance, and vocal ensembles have a strong following to their performances. “We believe in the unaltered flavorings of many different art programs throughout the community,” says Sam Yoder. “There can always be more art.” The demand and interest is here, Allegro says, from those desiring to take part in and to watch a show, but the ongoing challenge is that performance space is limited. Allegro’s long-term plans are to grow its theatre department into a larger rehearsal and performance space, and keep its private lessons and administrative offices on Main Street. Next up for Allegro’s theatre department is a production of The Little Mermaid, directed by Hannah Butler. The January auditions brought in more than 50 actors from Northern Virginia, Culpeper and surrounding counties, as well as Fauquier. Performance dates are in the spring, and then auditions for Allegro’s summer programs will begin. Allegro has hopes of producing a Christmas show – stay tuned!

Local News

HISTORY Did Culpeper receive $500,000 war claims? I bet you are a little curious as to what this is all about and wondering if Culpeper got any of that $500,000. We may not discover why it took Congress twentyfive years to make this decision, but let’s lift the curtain and see what we find. The “war claims” noted in the headline pertained to the damage resulting from the American Civil War. I find it interesting that the secondary headline states that the this comes after twenty-five Years of defeats. Using a calculator to avoid even the simplest of mathematical errors, twenty-five was subtracted from 1915. The result is 1890! Are we to understand that despite the 1865end of the Civil War that claims were not submitted until 1890? One can comprehend a reasonable amount of wait time accounting for political chaos and confusion related to the assassination of Lincoln and general bureaucratic procedures, but twentyfive years before submission seems implausible. In fact, records support that many claims were submitted before 1865. If the headline was not a typographical mistake, then it should be made clear

ZANN’S PLACE Zann Nelson

that the claims were approved fifty years after the fact. Moving beyond the remarkable span between the submission of claims and the receipt of same, the article identifies by county where located which entities were successful. Claims were submitted for damage to property by Union forces. Some destruction transpired during the battles from artillery engagements and subsequent fires as in St. James Episcopal Church at Brandy Station, VA in 1863. The majority of claims however were for damage to buildings used for hospitals, headquarters or the quartering of livestock during the non-combat periods of occupation and winter encampments. In many cases, the buildings were dismantled for the materials. The encampment of an estimated one hundred thousand troops during the winter of 1863-’64 resulted in veritable military cities in three primary locations of Culpeper County: Culpeper Court House, Stevensburg, and Brandy Station. Where there was a shortage of existing housing or none at all, materials were appropriated for huts, chimneys and walkways. No doubt, readers are now waiting anxiously to find out who were the fortunate few in Culpeper that received remuneration for their losses and just how much was the sum they collected. ➤ See Claims, Page 15

➤ Claims, from Page 14 Reparations were paid to twelve entities for a total of $12,780the equivalent of 315,059.90 in 2018. Without further ado, this is what was reported. To the trustees of the Baptist Church of Culpeper, $1,750. To the trustees of Fairfax Lodge No. 43, Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons, of Culpeper, $700. To the trustees of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, of Culpeper, $1,850. To the trustees of the Presbyterian Church of Culpeper, $760. To the vestry of St. Stephen’s Protestant Episcopal Church, of Culpeper, $1000 To the trustees of Calvary Protestant Episcopal Church, of Culpeper County, $1,650. To the trustees of the Cedar Grove Church, of Culpeper County, $390. To the trustees of the Cedar Run Baptist Church, of Culpeper County, $900. To the trustees of the Chestnut Fork Old School Baptist Church, of Culpeper County, $1,180. To the trustees of Ebenezer Methodist Episcopal Church, of Culpeper County, $900. To the trustees of New Salem Baptist Church, of Culpeper County, $1000. To the wardens and vestrymen of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, of Culpeper County, $700. The 1915 list suggests that some of these churches have been renamed, no longer exist or were misidentified as being in Culpeper. All fodder for another article. Until next week, be well.

Culpeper Times • April 26-May 2, 2018


In his posthumously published memoir in 1964, Ernest Marshall Conner Hemingway described the lasting impact of the city of lights, “If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.” On Saturday, that feast of the heart and spirit moves to Culpeper. This year’s 10th Senior Prom, sponsored by Aging Together will be held at Culpeper Christian School this Saturday (April 28th) from 2-5p.m. The school is located at 810 Old Rixeyville Road. This year’s theme is “April in Paris.” Never doubt the rejuvenating power of a great time spent with friends. The magic of a good song can

provide a shot of youthful vigor on the dance floor regardless of age. Over the last ten years I have covered the senior prom and I have many fond memories of the event. Great memories include putting my camera and pen aside and dancing the twist with Pat Kosalinski, a friend from the Culpeper Silver Club and my yearly interview with the ever-bubbly Freda Tarza, of Warrenton. Tarza is the perfect ambassador of fun for this event and she’s been the life of the party for eight-outnine years I’ve covered it. She is a whirlwind of energy. She dances to every song and even manages to teach other attendees how to limbo, twist, waltz or swing. “I believe we should all just dance, dance, dance,” said Tarza last year. “Don’t wait for the golden years to arrive, get out there and enjoy the golden moment. The time to have fun is now.” Sadly, this year I will not be able to attend due to another nostalgia-

centered event—my 32nd high school reunion at Fishburne Military School. Despite my absence I wanted to fully endorse the senior prom---mainly because I’ve witnessed its magic. Music and dancing provide a glimpse of a momentary heaven where aches, wrinkles and years retreat for a few precious hours. Notable highlights are sure to include the positive energy of the prom’s host Pastor Brad Hales, the crowning of a king and queen - plus music, dancing, light refreshments and door prizes. The prom is also a free event for senior citizens ages 50 and better. In its history the Senior Prom has grown in popularity among senior citizens in the five-county area. The dance organized by Aging Together is supported by families, individuals and businesses. The event is also a true labor of love for the Culpeper Town Police and volunteers from all the area’s senior groups.

This year’s sponsors include the Culpeper Star Exponent, Hope InHome Care, Home Instead Senior Care, Grace Retirement Village, The Arbors of Culpeper, Visiting Angels, Heartland Hospice and New Century Hospice. Large groups of seniors from Culpeper Parks and Recreation’s Silver Club, Culpeper Senior Center, churches and assisted living residents usually attend this event. According to past attendees, one of the best things about earning an advanced age is the power of perspective and the wisdom to know a good time when it presents itself. Most attendees carpool to the event with friends and there will be many opportunities to meet people from other senior-oriented groups and clubs. Give your date a call or go meet some new friends at this popular Culpeper event. For more information call Aging Together at 540-829-6405 or email them at

The Key to Specific Bequests ESTATE STEWARDSHIP

Picture a major, metropolitan city with bright Katherine Charapich lights and people busily going about their lives. There are the smells of pizza – you know the kind, where one slice barely fits on the paper plate and if you don’t fold that plate just right the cheese begins to slide . . . There are the sounds of taxi horns, and people yelling greetings. There is a hum that never stops. Without identifying the location, so as to provide some anonymity, a recent speaking engagement prompted a story that encompassed such a setting within a bustling city - where people live in close quarters, and there is a beauty that rises from the lives that become intertwined. One could say, “it was one of those ‘aha’ moments,” when something in the course material comes alive for an attendee. During the seminar, I had just transitioned from giving an overview of estate planning documents to

examining the structure of a last will and testament, when a gentleman eagerly raised his hand. As soon as he began to speak, his accent captivated the twenty-or-so in attendance. The gentleman said that as I was talking about specific bequests of tangible personal property, meaning the items that we can touch and which we may convey or bequeath to a particular person or entity, the discussion reminded him of a story in which he played a fairly major role. The story involved this gentleman who lived in a building nestled within the city, and who had the privilege of witnessing the friendship that grew between neighbors in adjoining apartments - an older adult lady and a woman not yet entering such a season. One can imagine that the building may have been a high rise with many rent-controlled apartments, where perhaps the landlord remained a little scarce, and the neighbors were not just dependent upon one another, but truly enjoyed each other’s company. As the story goes, the two ladies became very good friends - picture the shared cups of coffee, the quiet

moments perhaps no longer so remote. Especially important, when there were adult children who never came to visit the older adult lady; not a note, not a call. Whether two, three, or more – the number is not important here. The poignancy is in the life lived without those to whom one gave life. Time passed and the older adult lady became ill, and eventually she had no fight left; her departure was a graceful one. Unbeknownst to those who were her friends, the older adult lady had prepared to pass on her meager belongings with dignity. This lovely lady, who towards the end of her life built memories on her own without the help of her children, made a specific bequest in her last will and testament – leaving a piece of furniture, and the contents therein, to the woman next door who had become her friend. Perhaps that piece of furniture was all she had to leave, those elements of the story we do not know. What can be shared is that there was no devise or bequest to any of the children. And, when the non-descript piece of furniture was delivered to the

neighbor, inside a drawer was a key with a note attached. The note instructed that the beneficiary give the key to the very gentleman who was in the audience of my seminar stating, “he’ll know what to do with it.” Looking over the worn piece of furniture gave no indication of the magic within. As this gentleman got down on his knees, peered underneath, shined his small flashlight from corner-to-corner, there it was . . . a secret compartment, and the key was a perfect fit. A thank you contained therein for a friendship when one may have been most needed – a compartment filled with gems that glittered, worth millions one said. True friendship is priceless – this story is about principle. A simple specific bequest made in a Last Will and Testament may speak volumes where no voice previously stood. Plan ahead. Protect what is yours. Give thanks as appropriate. Write a beautiful verse. Katherine S. Charapich, Esq., operates the Estate Law Center, PLLC in downtown Culpeper. Call 540-812-2046.

Marketing Minute - Event Exhibiting Success - Part Two Happy Spring - Finally! If you read last month’s article you will recall we are talking about reaching potential customers via trade shows, festivals and events. There are many such opportunities in the region. They offer an unparalleled opportunity to market your business by making tangible connections in person. Your level of success however, depends on your ability to hold the attention of the available audience long enough to deliver your message. More over, a clearly defined goal and message will give you a greater return on your investment. Firstly, you will want to look the part. People naturally gravitate to the exciting, eye catching displays, and warm welcoming faces. Invest in a tablecloth (please no wrinkles!) and backdrop with your logo - this will easily identify you from across the room and give you the right air of professionalism. Dress your staff in company uniform and smiles. A good way to lure people from across the room can be a game or an activity. Giant games such as Spin to


Sophie Hudson

Win, Plinko, Jenga and Cornhole offer you many benefits. They require a person to spend a little extra time at your display, giving you more chance to interact and talk about their needs and how your products and services may fulfill them. Plus, they will be having fun doing this, so less likely to feel a hard sell from you. Games that require an action to win a promotional item / prize will save you money in the long run as they have to be earned not grabbed. If a giant game is not for you, consider offering activities for children such as face painting, coloring or crafts. This will still give you one on one time with parents while creating a memory and reference point about your company. Offering a quality promotional item that is a good fit for both your business and the recipient will carry your message thousands of times, for months after the event, each time it is looked at or used. This should not be looked over. The right giveaway is a reference point for the recipient, something they will use to remember you by. This is especially true when it comes to Millennials. Ready for some statistics?! After receiving a promotional item, 87% of Millennials will look up the brand, and are 88% more likely to do business with that brand. Figures are not much less for us older folks.

Again, picking the right item should be specific to your company, your message and the recipient. This is a delicate balance. NEVER get the cheapest thing you can find, just to give something out. If you wouldn’t keep/use what you are giving away, why would someone else? Save your money and put it into supplies for a fun activity, a new display item or a single prize drawing. Look at the infographic, “Staying Power of Promotional Products.” This shows where people keep their promotional products. This tells you items that are kept on the recipient or in the kitchen are safe choices if you are at a loss for ideas. I would include the cellphone as items that are “on self.” Items such as phone stands, loaded with your business card are great for this. Kitchen utensils are excellent choices; I saw a promotional whisk the other day. I would LOVE to be given a promotional whisk! I could (and do) do this all day! In part 3 next month we will talk about data capture and follow up. If you have a question to put to Sophie on marketing your business, you can contact Sophie Hudson at: Kash Design, 629 Sperryville Pike, Suite 204, Culpeper, VA 22701 540.317.1473,,

Understanding the progression of dementia AGEWISE

You may have heard the expression, as written by Shakespeare in Hamlet, “They say an old man is twice the child.” For just about everyone moving into the upper age brackets, we can understand this sentiment – older people often lose their teeth, their ability to walk, etc. But when dealing with dementia, a person is even more apt to “become a child” as the disease progresses. We had a very informative speaker at the Library on April 7, Judy Cleary of Branchlands in Charlottesville. Judy has worked with residents with memory impairment for many years and she shared some of her knowledge and experience with the audience. As part of her presentation, Judy reviewed what she called the “age of acquisition” in order to better understand the stages of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

Carol Simpson

In the early stages of dementia, those affected are generally able to function relatively independently, as can a 12year old, but may have poor judgment and need help with certain tasks. As the person advances in their memory impairment, they “move backward” through the stages they gained as they went from infancy, through childhood, to adulthood. So, for example, in the middle stages of dementia, the person may lose the ability to select proper clothing (a skill they gained at about age 5). In the later stages, the ability to shower and toilet independently becomes lost (acquired at age 2-4). And in the last stage of dementia, the capacity to speak is lost (as it was attained at 1-2 years) and to do much beyond smile and hold up one’s head (learned at 1-4 months); at this stage, the person with dementia is completely dependent upon others to sustain life, as are infants. Understanding this disease progression helps us as caregivers to come to terms with which skills are retained and which are no longer available.

“The seasons form a great circle in their changing and always come back again to where they were. The life of man is a circle from childhood to childhood.” Black Elk, 1863-1950. We are very pleased to invite you to our 3rd annual caregivers’ conference, to be held on Tuesday, June 19, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Germanna Community College’s Culpeper Campus. Internationally known dementia care expert, Teepa Snow, will conduct an allday workshop, "Helping Throughout the Journey of Dementia." She will use a variety of teaching methods to train the audience, both professional and family caregivers, in understanding behaviors, communication strategies, and changing the environment for better outcomes. The workshop is $30, which includes breakfast and lunch, as well as continuing education credits for those wanting them. Go to www. for more information and registration. Scholarships for unpaid family caregivers are available; call Aging Together for scholarship information at 540-829-6405.

'Oney Judge' tells her story at The Culpeper County Library By Fran Cecere SPECIAL TO THE CULPEPER TIMES

Friday, March 30, an audience of adults and children learned about Oney Judge. She was born in 1773 at Mount Vernon and was a slave because her mother was a slave. Her parents were Betty, a seamstress, and Andrew, a tailor, an indentured servant. At the age of ten Ona, as her friends called her, became the hand maiden of Martha Washington. She was the property of the First Lady of the United States. Sheila Arnold, who has worked at Colonial Williamsburg, stayed in character throughout the performance including a time period outfit, halting voice, and shaking hands depicting her age and sta-

tus. Even her walking and taking a sip of water was done in the character of a much older woman who had finally come out of hiding and lifetime of hard work. To help share the information, Oney asked a young girl, Amari Jackson and an adult woman, Edna Mason to come to the front of the room. They had only expected to attend the performance but they soon became part of the story. Jackson, just eleven years old, acted the part of Oney, the hand maiden. As Oney explained her daily chores, the young girl pantomimed the activity while Mason acted the part of Martha Washington. Each day Oney woke at about five in the morning to prepare for Martha Washington’s bath. She dressed her, walked with her, car-

OBITUARIES Patsy Ann Stephens Law Patsy Ann Stephens Law passed away peacefully April 6, 2018 at the age of 83 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s Disease. Patsy was born March 22, 1935 in Carrollton, Georgia to Robert Golson Stephens and Malinda (Bailey) Stephens. She graduated from high school in Marshalltown, Iowa and returned to Georgia where she began working in Atlanta. It was there that she met her husband of nearly 62 years, Howard Vance Law. Howard and Patsy were married June 10, 1956 and began their lives together in Arlington, Virginia. Howard’s career took them to China Lake, California; Macon, Georgia; Mobile, Alabama; and back to Fairfax then Marshall, Virginia before retiring here in Casper. Along the way they were blessed with three children: Vicki Law Burger, Vance Stephen Law, and Howard Andrew Law. Patsy enjoyed RVing with the family and many a weekend was spent in the mountains of Virginia. She was also an accomplished seamstress and floral arranger, employing her talents to arrange flowers for the altar of Trinity Lutheran Church. Shortly after arriving in Casper she had surgery for breast cancer and subsequent chemotherapy and radiation. She went on to use her experiences to guide and support others through the Casper Angels Program. In addition, Patsy spent many years with Howard delivering Meals on Wheels. The great joy of Patsy’s life was her grandchildren, Michael (Sara), Alex (Holly), Whitney, Max, Stephen (Brooke), Will, and Drew (Devan), as well as her great-grandchildren Cayden, Cooper, Libby, Brooklyn, Reagan, Hayden, Avery, and Spencer. Patsy was preceded in death by her parents, son-in-law Dr. Gerald Burger, and great-grandson Jacob Burger. She is survived by her husband, Howard; children, Vicki, Vance (Carole), Andy (Teresa), grandchildren, and greatgrandchildren, and her brother, Douglas (Waldi) Kirk of Indiana. Services to celebrate Patsy’s victory in Christ will be held at Trinity Lutheran Church on April 28th at 10:30 am. The family requests that any donations be made to Trinity Lutheran Church or Wyoming Dementia Care.


Shelia Arnold, seated, portrays Oney Judge at Culpeper County Public Library March 30. ried shopping purchases, and performed everything asked of her. Most nights she even slept by the door in the First Lady’s room so that if she was needed she could respond quickly. Occasionally she was allowed to spend time in the slave quarters with her mother. Mrs. Washington was in complete control and Oney was like a “chair in the room.” She was visible, but essentially invisible. After George Washington became the First President, Oney

would travel with the family to the first Capital, New York City. Eighteen months later the Capital was changed to Philadelphia and the Washington’s had a home there. Oney loved the grand parades, fireworks, balloons, splendid horses, and finest carriages and enjoyed a circus performance with huge elephants. She lived in Philly with the Washingtons, but every five months Martha Washington and her slaves ➤ See Judge, Page 23

➤ Judge, from Page 22 returned to Mount Vernon, Virginia. Oney then had a chance to see her beloved mother and family. Later she learned from a laundry worker that if they had not returned to Virginia or New Jersey every six months, she would have been considered to be Free. During this time, Martha’s daughter Elizabeth was going to be married and Oney was going to be given to her as a wedding present. She did not like Elizabeth and did not want to go. In May, 1796, at the first opportunity, she escaped. With the assistance of others, she hid in a dark compartment deep in a ship. She was provided with a little food every day, but was sea sick and very scared. Oney was told not to come out of the room until she heard the announcement for New Hampshire. Finally she had her feet on free land and she inhaled the sweet, clear air. She worked as a cleaning woman, eventually married John Stains a sailor, and had children. Although she never again saw her parents or her family, she remembered the words her mother said, “Freedom means everything, more than shoes, clothes, or home.” Freedom meant sacrifice. In her life she felt that slavery hurts the person who owns, and

the person who is owned. During her time with the Washingtons, she learned that George was in favor of freedom for the slaves but Martha was vehemently opposed to freedom. Oney felt a responsibility to help others and care for members of the community. She learned to read and write because parishioners of the Congregational Church took the time to teach her and many others. Two of Oney’s children died at a young age due to diseases which were common during that time period. One of her daughters became on indentured servant to help with supporting the family. An indentured servant serves for a designated period of time and is given money or land for their service. The audience attending this presentation laughed or felt sad during this story-telling event. After Oney removed her white wig, stopped the pretend shaking of her hands, and again became “Sheila Arnold,” she said that Oney died in 1846 at the age of 75. Arnold remained for another half hour talking with participants and answering their questions. She explained that she initially learned about Oney Judge when she visited Mount Vernon and knew that she had to do her story.

blood of the local economy,” said Coyle. “More importantly, the industry brings the whole town and surrounding area together as a family. That’s why I’m hopeful that this e-commerce site takes off, because the people of Culpeper and the hardworking family owned farmers and ranchers in the area deserve to grow, thrive, and to be happy and healthy – for generations to come. With Lakota Foods, we’ll hopefully be the catalyst for a groundswell of positive economic activity, job creation, and prosperity right here in Culpeper. And, I couldn’t be more honored and proud to partner with the Engh Family on this exciting new venture.” Farming in Northern Virginia since the 1950's, the Engh family moved from Effingham plantation in Nokesville, Virginia to Lakota Ranch on the edge of Culpeper County in Remington, Virginia in 1990. With the family history rich in agriculture and livestock production, the Engh’s have long been recognized for the gourmet quality grass-fed beef produced by their Devon cattle and for the quality of the cattle themselves. “My family has been proud to be a part of Culpeper and the local farming community for a half-century,” said Jerry Engh. “We love it here. We know that the future of food is local. And, we know a significant part of the future of commerce is e-commerce. For the well-being of folks in Culpeper and beyond, we’re proud to be able to work with our local community to provide folks with local, great-tasting, healthy food options that with the new Lakota Fresh Foods site are just one-click away.” The online grocery market is heating up with sales expected to increase from around $71 billion last year to $177 billion by the year 2022, according to Cowen & Co. In seeking out an e-commerce platform provider to partner with, Coyle said that choosing Lulus Local Food was a “no-brainer.” A software solution for operating online farmers markets and food hubs, Lulus progressive program is designed to serve as an online tool for establishing a local market food system. Lulus is building local markets and establishing small food hubs in communities throughout Virginia and Montana and neighborhoods in-between, according to the company’s website.

Excavation has begun at the Bright Spot Playground by B.F. Wise and Son Excavation. The land was surveyed by Piedmont Land Surveyor. ➤ Nonprofit, from Page 8 pahannock Goodwill, said many residents hear Goodwill and think immediately of their thrift store. There’s more to their mission. “The only way we are to do our mission is collaboration, working with other nonprofits and companies,” Bywaters-Baldwin said. “It’s always good to network and share how we can work together. The Thrift Store just helps us fund our mission of helping people get to work in the community. That’s the heart and passion of what we do.”

They’ll be hosting a regional job fair April 28 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Germanna Community College’s Daniel Technology Center. The job fair will feature 20 employers and will be held from high school and college students from 10 to 11 a.m. and then open to the public. Mike Timm, with Verdun Adventure Bound, praised the efforts of the nonprofits and the partnerships of local businesses, like Dave Jenkins of Firestone in Warrenton. Jenkins has his own business specializing in sound and equipment and donated his services for the

many performances hosted in the afternoon. “These guys do a great job for kids out here, I’ve said for many years there’s not enough for kids to do in the county, Fauquier or Culpeper,” Jenkins said. Adriana Bustamante, of Theatrical Artists, said the Nonprofit Day helps expand their reach. “I know there’s a lot of activities that are going on here and maybe a lot of children that are looking for things to do,” Bustamante said. “I think it’s just great to have the opportunity to expand where we reach out to.”
