LOCAL NEWS PDM Motorworks has a passion for classic cars ➤ New business venture will host grand opening Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer Zeb Pixley loves to see the reaction of customers when he rolls out a renovated classic car. Akin to Christmas morning, it’s a culmination of his hard work and pure elation by the customer that makes it special when he finishes restoring a classic car to its previous glory at PDM Motorworks. PDM Motorworks, located off Route 666 along Enterprise Way, behind the Schewel’s Furniture warehouse, is Pixley’s latest venture with business partner Andy Dellett hosting a grand opening May 4 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Pixley, who previously operated Pixley Automotive on Montanus Drive, quietly sold that business in October 2018 and redirected his energy to a business that he’s been operating since March 2016. “I’ve always maintained and worked on classic cars, I’ve always had people ask if I would work on classic cars for them,” Pixley said. “The next thing I know, we’re overwhelmed.” His current venture started when a company asked him to create a custom Chevrolet Suburban into a limo and he started to work more on custom and classic car builds. He joined with Dellett this summer, after working on one of Dellett’s personal vehicles. “Andy was working with me last summer, I painted a car for him and I started to see him working out of his garage, and I saw the opportunity,” Pixley said. “He came up and started over the summer and the

next thing he’s working five days a week with me. I said why don’t you just join me?” Now the duo have a steady stream of classic cars coming into their shop, as they do as much as a client wants to restore the car. Pixley said they can fix mechanical problems, paint the car or do a full rebuild and restore - it just depends on what the customer needs. “It’s fun,” he said. “You don’t have to do this to the car, but it’s just a fun hobby to have. It’s a good investment too. If you invest in the car correctly and you build the car correctly, you’re going to have a return out of it.” He said most people want the “turn key” experience, where they bring in a car and he restores it handing them the keys and having them drive it off the lot. He says that most people that come in have a car, but don’t know what direction to take it the rebuild - and that’s where he and Dellett come in. He’s rebuilt thousands of cars during his career, and he brings that expertise to helping recreate memories for his customers. “I don’t know who’s more excited, me or them,” Pixley said. “I get just as excited to finish a car and see the work quality come out. To see them, it’s just like Christmas morning.” It is quite the investment, he said, pointing out a 1967 GTO he’s working on now. That rebuild could end between $100,000 to $130,000. It’s a time investment for Pixley, who has focused all of his energy on this new venture. “Since restoration has taken over, I’ve sold all my racecars,” Pixley said. “I was doing it as a career and it was a lot of money spent and a lot of time spent away. I can’t neglect my clients right now. I may get back into it eventually.” He said he helps connect customers with the cars they want as well,

PDM Motorworks owners Andy Dellett and Zeb Pixley will welcome the community to their business for a grand opening May 4 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. which he and Dellett can then restore. “I broker deals all the time,” Pixley said. “I have a client I’m getting ready to do a Corvette for him. The big thing is I want to find something that’s not a money for him, so I do a lot of that - go look at cars.” He said he’s seeing more requests for cars and trucks from the 1970s, but said that Baby Boomers continue to make up the majority of his consumer base. “It’s mainly the Baby Boomers coming in to have the income to support it,” Pixley said. “It’s definitely an expensive undertaking when you come through the process. I’ll give it another third years, you’ll see the third generation Camaros coming in.” He’s also an ardent supporter of the Cruisin’ For Heroes nonprofit, who will have a booth set up to accept donations for the Fisher House during the grand opening event. Fisher House Foundation is best known for a network of comfort homes where military and veterans’ families can stay at no cost while a loved one is receiving treatment.

Cruisin’ For Heroes helps support the home that are located at major military and VA medical centers nationwide, close to the medical center or hospital it serves. Fisher House Foundation ensures that there is never a lodging fee. Since its inception, the program has saved military and veterans’ families an estimated $400+ million in out-of-pocket costs for lodging and transportation. Lou Realmuto, with Cruisin’ For Heroes, said Pixley has been great to work with. “We try to advertise for him to have people come over to him,” Realmuto said. “There’s nothing in this area, most of the people we know have to go to Fredericksburg. Having someone local is great. “For us it’s awesome, we’re just a handful of old folks who are trying to do good,” Realmuto said. “He donates door prizes for Bruesters and stuff like that. His generosity and cooperation has been great.” The grand opening will feature a DJ and Burnt End BBQ will be on site as well. For more information about PDM Motorworks, call 540.729.1979.

GOP nominates six for local races The Culpeper Republican Party nominated six candidates for the November election following a canvas April 27. Candidates that will be running as Republicans this election will be: Paul Walter (Commonwealth’s Attorney), Missy Norris White (treasurer), Scott Jenkins (Sheriff), Ben Phillips (East Fairfax Board of Supervisors), Tom Underwood (Salem Board of Supervisors), Nate Clancey (Catalpa Board of Supervisors). “The Culpeper Republican Committee is ecstatic of the quality and quantity of Republican Candidates moving forward to the General Election,” said Culpeper Culpeper Republican Committee Executive Member Marshall Keene. “Each one of the nominees clearly demonstrate in their personal and professional lives that they are true stewards of the principals of the Republican Creed. We are confident that Culpeper Republican Voters will continue to turn out to support our slate of candidates. Keene said Saturday’s election was a huge win for the local GOP. “Anytime a party has a contested race and can pull it off without any setbacks speaks volumes about Republicans in Culpeper,” he said, acknowledging the efforts of canvass chairman Dale Duvall. Keene congratulated Underwood, saying he is the last to join what the local party believes to be a strong ticket for the November General Election. Underwood was in the only contested race for the Republican nomination, defeating Clint Oxidine 62 percent to 38 percent. For endorsements for the Republican party, Salem School Board candidate Anne Luckinbill is the only school board candidate who has asked for an application.

Luckinbill announces for Salem school board seat Anne Luckinbill is seeking re-election to the School Board representing the Salem District. She is a former Chairman of the Board and has served on multiple board committees including; Family Life Education, Student Health Advisory, Administration Committee, PREP, Finance Committee, Gifted Advisory Committee, Capital Improvement Committee, and Career Partners. Anne’s relationships with staff, students, and families enable her


to fully understand the celebrations and concerns of the Culpeper community. She is an advocate who seeks better solutions. Anne has been an involved participant in refining and approving annual school budgets which are both fiscally conservative and supportive of student and staff needs. She is a mother to four children who have graduated from or are currently enrolled in Culpeper County Public Schools. She is married to her husband, Gene, who is an Army veteran and professional firefighter for 25 years. Anne was a public elementary school teacher then a stay at home parent for many years. When her youngest child was in elementary school, she attained her Master’s degree in counseling and completed a counseling residency. Anne is currently a Licensed Professional Counselor who owns a therapy business in downtown Culpeper. "My experience, community connections, thoughtful insights, financially conservative perspectives, and in-depth knowledge of CCPS afford her a unique ability to serve her Salem District and Culpeper wholeheartedly and effectively," she said.

Culpeper Times wins eight VPA press awards

Paige Simpson (Editor's note: This is weekly series highlighting members of Culpeper's Youth Council. To join Culpeper Youth, go to to apply.) Recently there has been a focus on the lifeline of our environment. Although the premise of climate change and the decreasing well being of our planet as we know it seems daunting, there are many things we can do right here in Culpeper to change the odds of Earth's future. After much research on how tremendous the damage truly is, it is obvious that we need to realize how important it is to make changes to our daily lifestyles. So here's some simple ways you can save the environment one step at a time: -go vegetarian/vegan -buy a reusable water bottle -use metal straws instead of plastic -invest in reusable grocery bags and reusable containers -one bamboo toothbrush replaces the waste of 4 plastic toothbrushes -replace harsh cleaners with natural ones -use organic makeup/beauty products, especially reef-safe sunscreen this summer -RECYCLE and compost -plant your own garden -go thrift shopping to cut down on unnecessary clothing products -take shorter showers -turn off your lights when you can and unplug cords when not in use -support your local shops and farmer's markets Hopefully this will influence you to make a change in both Culpeper and the world!

The Culpeper Times won eight awards, including three first-place prizes, in the Virginia Press Association’s competition for excellence in journalism and advertising during 2018.

➤ CTE, from Page 5 fess their intentions for their future,” Richards-Lutz said. “This represents an investment that all parties are making in the development of the students’ future.” Richards-Lutz praised the work of Marty Bywaters-Baldwin, director of Workforce Services at Rappahannock Goodwill Industries, Inc., for his willingness to work with the students and businesses to find the perfect fit. “Marty has spent countless hours working directly with our kids on resumes and cover letters,” Richards-Lutz said. “This evening is a success because of his caring, hard working traits as well as his skills in human resources.” Following the signing, where students donned the hats or help up shirts of the business or military branch they were joining, Richards-Lutz said the day could be called nothing but a success. “In 23 years here in Culpeper, this has been the best day,” Richards-Lutz said. “The senior job fair, I left that day feeling the same way I feel now - I’m just absolutely proud. I’m proud of our students, I’m proud of our em-

ployers.” She said the students had worked closely with the administration to make the signing day happen. “They were really excited about it,” Richards-Lutz said. “We have such wonderful students. They care, they want to learn. They want to do their best. We have high expectations and they rise to it.” Eastern View High school senior Jacob Settle was one of three students who signed with Chemung Contracting. He will join their apprenticeship program starting out at approximately $40,000 a year and will have any of his future education paid for through Ed and Cathy Dalyrymple’s business. “With the job opportunities they have and all the courses you could take through them and all the opportunities, I couldn’t turn it down,” Settle said. Settle said the business fair held on April 9 and the signing day signals a sea change for CCPS, as they’ve helped direct students who aren’t going to college to find jobs right out of high school. “Students usually come out and they don’t have a job, but this right here gives them an opportunity to get a job and meet

different employers and it’s a good experience,” Settle said. Bywaters-Baldwin said the school system should be commended for their efforts - which includes the building of a new CTE school near Germanna Community College’s Daniel Technology Center. “The schools are knocking it out of the park connecting all these young people with jobs and careers,” Bywaters-Baldwin said. “For Goodwill, that’s what we’re all about - connecting people to work. To be a part of this to see the future for the young people but also the talent for the local businesses, it really celebrates our business community too.” Dalrymple said Chemung Contracting and Cedar Mountain Stone have been looking forward to a program like this for years. “This is our future,” Dalyrymple said. “We’ve worked at this for years. This is the first time we’ve successfully brought people into the program and signed them. The three people who are coming to work right now are our future. We’re going to train people to work in our industry. They’ll be trained to run asphalt plans, to do asphalt, mix designs and test them. Everyone of them is like three people to the company.”

EHE students perform at All Virginia Elementary Chorus Contributed report Six fifth grade students from Emerald Hill Elementary School recently participated in All Virginia Elementary Chorus with Mrs. ter Weele on Saturday, April 6th. A day long rehearsal culminated with a public concert at Harrisonburg High School. Malia Allison, Lindsey Brown, Alyssa Harding, Miranda Prezleski, Layla Rollins, and Ashlyn Vasilas are to be congratulated for their dedication, beautiful singing, and the beginnings of their choral careers! They were all model citizens and excellent representatives for Emerald Hill. 230 outstanding 5th grade singers from all over the state of Virginia experienced the joy of making music together. Students worked with a master conduc-

tor, learned a varied repertoire of quality choral literature, and increased their knowledge of vocal

skills. Students were chosen by audition by their elementary music teacher and practiced the mu-

The primary themes throughout them all are encouragement and mental health advocacy. I have a small team of women helping to spread kindness in their own communities.” She said that she hopes her blog helps the notes grow a wider audience, and already has notes going out to Canada, Mississippi, New Hampshire, North Carolina and Minnesota. Her goal is to encourage people to write their own as well. She recently showed off a note she was planning to leave at a local coffee shop, inside the message read “your past does not define you.” It’s a message of self-forgiveness, forgiveness of others and encouragement to be true to yourself.

Strong in her Christian faith, Newbauer says the notes aren’t overly religious but come with that subtle message. “I do pray over every card before I send them out,” she said. “I think every card has the love of God stamped on them, although it

doesn’t overtly say ‘God bless.’” She said her daughter Amaya, 5, helps write and hide the notes and pointed out it’s important to help teach the younger generation that kindness matters. It’s a theme she’s noticed through her job at the Salvation Army. “I encounter a lot of people in crisis,” she said. “Although I try to meet that tangible need, what I found most is that everyone has the need to be heard. Seeing people’s authentic reaction is sometimes shock. When creating this kindness initiative, I’m thinking of certain client’s reactions if they were to find the cards.” She hopes that people who find the notes visit the website and contact her. “If anyone ever wants to continue the conversation or ask why I’m doing this, then I can tell them it was the love of God that made me love a stranger,” she said.

HISTORY Lying: What is that? A new series Part 1 ZANN’S PLACE Zann Nelson

Good Morning. This column and a few that will follow over the next few months will be a bit different, and even if you do not initially care for the subject matter, I am ever hopeful that it will cause

you to think. The subject is lying and all its parts. Who lies, what do they lie, who do they lie to, is lying always a bad thing and why or why not? Do you tell lies, do you live lies? What kind of lies have you been told; if you know it is a lie, what do you do? Do you accept it or challenge it? Let’s start with the definition of a lie. Miriam Webster defines the verb to lie is “to make an untrue statement with intent to deceive.”

The same source defines the noun a lie as “an assertion of something known or believed by the speaker or writer to be untrue with intent to deceive.” Wouldn’t you say that the key word here is intent? If the intent is to deceive does that not cause you to wonder about the motivations of the purveyor of the lie? Why would they want to deceive me, you or anyone else? My guess is that there is an ulterior motive, right? That seems logical. Is it incumbent upon me to question if I think there is a lie in the room? Maybe or maybe not. Does it depend upon the lie, the ultimate rationale, the outcome and assessment of if there is resulting harm or even an assessment of who gets harmed? Does the lie confirm an idea or a fact that we have already accepted? There are so many ways to look at the questions and if I can stay the course, we will try to look at them all together.

What were we taught about lying? I do not know about you, but I think it fair to say that most of us were taught that lying was wrong. That was the message I received throughout my childhood and beyond. It did not mean that we did not lie, some would even suggest that lying is a natural occurrence with children: afraid that the truth will have unwanted consequences e.g. a spanking, grounding, more chores and such. It begs the question, “Why tell the truth if it will only get you in trouble?” One could make a pretty strong argument in favor of that logic; however, others might proffer that in telling a lie about a misdeed is conflating the two separate issues and compounding the offense. Nonetheless, that is a challenging lesson to teach those in the learning phases of ethical behavior. The lesson I received at home was this: if I broke a rule or made an honest mistake

that caused some damage and then lied about it, my punishment was two-fold. I was punished first for the damage and if it was an accident the punishment was mild, but then I was chastised more severely for the lie. It is a complex issue and we will dig deeper as to what our culture tells us about lying and we will be sure to examine those incidents that are considered OK: the “white” lie. I am already pondering why it is called a “white” lie. One more thing, think about the content and do not try to read between the lines: there is nothing there! Until next week, be well.

Pippin and Scooter are not telling – ever CALLY TALES

Pippin is a friend who lived in North Carolina in a wooded and gated community, but had indoor-outdoor freedom through his cat door. He loved to explore the yard and nearby woods, and Elsa, his shy housemate, sometimes followed him out the door. Trouble was, Elsa had a poor sense of direction and usually got lost in the woods. Feeling responsible, Pippin always stepped up to the plate to round her up and bring her home. He called it “search and rescue,” but it was only a sideline business. Pippin’s real love was hunting. He regularly bagged mice and chipmunks, bringing them home through his cat door to Pippin’s Corner in the family room. He wanted applause and adoration from his humans and always waited around for it. He finally got bored with the small stuff and moved up to squirrels, and finally he set his sights on rabbits. His prize was a large rabbit, roughly his own size, which he “did it” and dragged in for viewing. Word on the street is that when his teenage human found the rabbit, stiff as a starched shirt in his Corner, she let out a scream that rattled windows a block away. But the mystery is this. How did Pippin get his rabbit through the cat door? I haven’t yet seen a cat door big enough for both a large cat and a large rabbit to go through. Have you? When asked how he managed this miraculous feat, Pippin only smiled the classic cat smile—which meant he wasn’t telling— ever. And since he recently relocated to the Other Coast and a high-rise condo, I doubt I will ever be able to pry it out of him. So let me tell you about Scooter, a friend of a friend here in Virginia, who also had miraculous powers. Like Pippin,


Scooter was a mighty hunter, an indooroutdoor cat who could be counted on to tidy up the neighborhood of mice and moles--although he didn’t bring his kill into the house for applause and adoration. Then one day Scooter abandoned his outdoor life of hunting for an indoor life of cuddling. Just like that—a full wrap-around-the-neck cuddle with his Mama human which turned out to be an announcement of her pregnancy, in advance of her doctor telling her the news. Imagine that. Scooter rearranged his life to make this announcement and to ensure her he would be there for her the entire nine months. And he was. His Mama human thoroughly enjoyed his companionship. However, when the baby was born and brought home for viewing, Scooter considered his job finished and reverted to his outdoor life of hunting. A year or so went by, then came another neck wrap with his Mama human. Sure enough. Scooter knew what he knew. Another baby was on the way. When the same thing happened a third time, Scooter’s human didn’t hesitate. She took the bassinet out of storage and called her doctor to tell him the news. How did Scooter know? He only smiled the classic cat smile when asked how he knew what he knew— which meant he wasn’t telling—ever. And he never did. He took his secret with him to wherever cats go when they depart. I’m not making up these stories. These are real stories about real cats. I write down what I’m told. My only secret, which I'm eager to tell, is that I love treats, really love treats—especially the ones they have at Reigning Cats and Dogs on Davis Street in Culpeper. Ask your human to get you some, and tell them Cally sent you. Next time I'll tell you about Sebastian and Cat Carriers.

Defense attorney Zach Brown questions a witness while Judge Gary Close looks on during a mock trial at Eastern View High School April 16.

Mock trial teaches students about inner workings of justice system ➤ EVHS students participated in mock trial created by Oregon State Bar By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer Not guilty. Portraying defendant Beck Martin, Ryan Seation threw his hands up in jubilation. He was innocent. The verdict was part of a mock trial hosted at Eastern View High School April 16 by former Culpeper Commonwealth Attorney Gary Close for juniors and seniors in his law class he teaches at the high school. The case was based on a mock trial competition called State v. Martin, created by the Oregon State Bar. It recreates a fictional high school, Driftwood City High School, and a defendant - Martin, accused of murdering his classmate Anne Marcus in a school cheating scandal. Marcus, an avid rock climber, was found dead at the base of a rock wall near the beach and Martin was the last

person seen with her. The defense, led by senior Zach Brown and Julia Hall, argued that Martin was innocent and that evidence entered in at the end of the first day of trial - that Martin had confessed while being transported to jail - was inadmissible. That piece of evidence was a wrinkle thrown in by Close, and Brown said it caused them to put in extra work that helped them win the case. “I did some work last night and I did some work at school getting all the facts straight and getting all the actual legal stuff correct and finding real court cases that occured and having to take what they determined and put it into my own case,” Brown said. Brown said the exercise, which was viewed by a large group of students in the school’s forum, was hard work but extremely interesting. “It just goes to show that there has to be valuable evidence to show that someone is actually guilty and it just shows our court system and how it works,” Brown said. “That was the best part about the whole thing.” Seation maintained that key witness Cody Ward was the actual ➤ See Trial, Page 11

➤ Trial, from Page 10 murderer, even though Close said there is no right or wrong answer. “During class when we were working on this we all discussed it and determined what questions we should ask and it came out to be not guilty, we did a good job,” Seation said. Close, who served as judge, said it was evident how much work both the prosecution and defense put into the project. “I think they did excellent,” Close said. “What you take into account is the strength of the argument, and

that was created by the work they did.” Lily Galvin, who served on the prosecution with Jensen Armstrong, said she was disappointed they didn’t get a guilty verdict but said the mock trial was a valuable lesson. “I think there were some other points we should have nailed a little harder, but at the end of the day the jury does what the jury wants,” Galvin said. “It was a little nerve-wracking, maybe not because of just Judge Close but because there was a crowd here. I think everyone overall did a really good job.”

Written and directed by Darnell Martin making her feature film debut, “I Like it Like That” was nominated for four Independent Spirit Awards: Best First Feature, Best Female Lead (Luna Lauren Velez), Best Male Lead (Jon Seda) and Best Cinematography (Alexander Gruszynski), and Martin

FILM • “Mother”(Paramount, 1996) Debbie Reynolds, in her first leading role in 27 years, steals every scene she’s in as Beatrice Henderson, whose son John (Albert Brooks, who also directed)

wants to move back home after his second marriage has ended in divorce. A prickly, set-in-her-ways widow, Beatrice cooperates but is not pleased and the two constantly butt heads over dayto-day minutiae including Beatrice’s insistence on buying the cheapest brands of everything (“Sweet Tooth” sherbet, anyone?). The film was a hit with audiences and critics alike. New York Times film critic Janet Maslin wrote, “Mr. Brooks, whose humor thrives delightfully in this hothouse of Freudian confusion, brings vast reserves of quarrelsome, hairsplitting hilarity to the story of a man going mano a mano with his sweet little mom.” Albert Brooks and co-writer Monica Johnson won both the New York Film Critics Circle Award and the National Society of Film Critics Award for Best Screenplay and Reynolds was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress.

VIEWS Battle of Lexington and Concord CHARLES JAMESON

I’ve spent a lot of time writing about the Revolutionary War’s southern campaign. Maneuvers during that campaign were instrumental in ending the war, but April is the month in which the war began. So let’s head up north and take a look at April 19, 1775 and the Battles of Lexington and Concord and the “Shot Heard Round the World.” Boston was particularly troublesome for British leadership. Taxation and other acts riled the populace and the Sons of Liberty, led by Samuel Adams, was bringing the colony to the point of rebellion. In order to insure the British military could maintain control of the city and the surrounding area, British General Thomas Gage had taken to seizing guns and powder he felt would be used to arm an insurrection. When he got wind of a stockpile of arms and gunpowder in Concord, Massachusetts, he ordered a raid to confiscate the supply. Patriot spies soon got wind of Gage’s plan and dispatched riders, including a Boston silversmith named Paul Revere, to spread the word that 800 British regulars were marching on Concord. The Patriots didn’t know the purpose of the mobilization and thought that one of the objectives was the capture of Samuel Adams and John Hancock, both of whom were in Lexington that night. The riders spreading this news brought out more than the usual number of minutemen to the fight. The King’s troops arrived in the small town of Lexington around 5am and to their surprise, found a militia company of more than 70 men led by Captain John Parker. The British force rushed forward upon the green in a show of force to convince the colonists to back down. Captain Parker, seeing he was outnumbered, ordered his men to disperse, but in the ensuing confusion, a shot rang out. No one knows who fired that shot, but it sparked a British volley which killed eight, one of which was Jonathan Harrington, who managed to crawl home and die on his doorstep. The British moved on to Concord, leaving the dead, wounded and dying in their wake.


Arriving at Concord around 8am, British Commanders Francis Smith and John Pitcairn dispersed several companies to secure the crossings of the Concord River and search the town. Commander Pitcairn would be one of the first British officers killed two months later at the Battle of Bunker Hill, supposedly by the hand of an African American named Peter Salem or Salem Poor. But here in Concord, he ordered his men to Barrett Farm to secure a cache of arms and powder suspected of being there. By the time the British reached the North Bridge, a growing assembly of close to 400 militia from Concord and the surrounding towns had gathered on the high ground overlooking the bridge. From their vantage point on the hill they could see smoke rising from the town, the result of the British burning military supplies they had discovered. Thinking the town was being put to the torch, Lt. Joseph Hosmer of Concord shouted “Will you let them burn the town down?” Action needed to be taken. Col. James Barrett ordered his companies to march upon the bridge, but not to fire unless fired upon. The Acton Company, commanded by 30 year old Isaac Davis, was placed at the head of the column. When asked if they were prepared to confront the British troops, Davis replied “I haven’t a man afraid to go.” The minutemen formed up and marched down the hill. A detachment of about 90 British soldiers were stationed at the North Bridge, and seeing the colonial numbers and their orderly advance, retreated to the opposite shore and prepared to defend themselves. When Davis’ company came within range, British soldiers opened fire, killing Davis, Abner Hosmer and another minuteman. At this Maj. Buttrick of Concord exclaimed “For God sake, Fire!” The minutemen replied with a volley of their own, killing 3 British soldiers and wounding nine others. Outnumbered and out gunned, the British retreated from the bridge and regrouped with the rest of their forces. The colonist were stunned, not only that they were able to take the bridge, but more importantly, that the British troops had actually fired on them. This was a level of aggression that had not been experienced, and returning fire on the British troops was also a potentially treasonous action.

Some of the men, realizing the gravity of the situation, returned home to ensure the safety of their families. It took a while for Col. Barrett to regain control of his men and move them back to a defensive position. Commanders Smith and Pitcairn soon ordered a return to Boston. Where the British experienced a couple minor skirmishes that morning, they were about to experience all-out war. Thousands of minutemen patriots descended on the area. The British were attacked on all sides by angry minutemen along what is now known as Battle Road. When they reached Lexington, Capt. John Parker and his men exacted their revenge, firing on the British regulars from behind cover. For the next 12 miles the British were continually ambushed by minutemen from behind trees, rock walls and buildings. It was clear that day had been a disaster for the British. Seventy three British were killed and many more wounded compared to the Patriot loss of 49 killed. The emotions of this fight carried well beyond April 19th, inspiring American warriors to rise up and fight again. The British conducted a running fight until they could get under the cover of British gunships anchored in waterways surrounding Boston. Minutemen continued to pour in as word spread throughout the area. Among these minute and militia companies were many African Americans, both free and enslaved, who took up arms and fought alongside their white neighbors. Concord poet, Ralph Waldo Emerson dubbed them the “embattles farmers.” The Patriots were not American citizens yet. That would have to wait until 1776 and the Declaration of Independence. On April 19, 1775, they were simply ordinary people who believed that they were standing up to defend and fight for their rights as citizens of Great Britain. In doing so, they changed the world forever. Charles C. Jameson is a member and past president of the George Washington Carver Regional High School Alumni Association, vice president of the Culpeper Minute Men Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution, member of the Board of Trustees for the Museum of Culpeper History, and member of the Culpeper Branch #7058 of the NAACP.

They check in, they play their own personal dramas, sometimes they even intersect, and then they check out. Vicki Baum’s novel was set in 1928 Berlin, a place and time of financial and cultural recovery from WWI. Unlike “Cabaret” where German hedonists dedicated themselves to a “Tomorrow we die!” debauchery, “Grand Hotel” has a more restrained clientele. From the novel, it quickly became the 1932 film starring Greta Garbo, John and Lionel Barrymore, and Joan Crawford and won the Oscar for Best Picture. It was only a matter of time before someone thought it should be a musical. That 1989 musical, directed by Eric Schaeffer, is what’s on the Max stage at Signature Theatre. In terms of performances and design, it’s polished to a gleam. In terms of music and story, the memorable songs are the rare ones while the book itself is a patchwork, some stories more intriguing than others, none more than a piece of the web. Scene designer Paul Depoo III has wrapped the Max in ornate Art Decostyle rails suggesting that as viewers, we are intimate but silent guests of the Grand. A glossy front desk upstage center is framed by symmetrical curving staircases leading to an upper level of bronze wall sconces and more intricate railing. Colin Bills’ specific lighting adds depth and focus to individual performers on the marble tiled squares. From his quiet perches throughout the stage, Colonel-Doctor Otternschlag (Lawrence Redmond), an eye-patched veteran of the previous war, watches and comments on the human traffic before us. In spite of its bubbling energy and Kelly D’Amboise’s kicky choreography, the show is a bit of a slow starter. In an hour and forty-five uninterrupted minutes of play time, it takes nearly a half hour to introduce the disparate characters and get a grasp on who they are and why they’re here. Radiating fears of ruin, General Director Preysing (Kevin McAllister) bustles importantly about as he awaits news of the corporate merger that will save his company as well as his own financial life. When he, a penniless Baron, and ensemble belt out

What: “Grand Hotel” Where: Signature Theatre, 4200 Campbell Ave., Arlington, Va. Call: (703) 820-9771 Playing through May 19

“The Crooked Path” there isn’t much mystery as to the trajectory of their lives. Hitting an entirely different note is the naïve but anxiously optimistic typist, Flaemmchen, (Nicki Elledge) who has her sights set on a Hollywood career and imagines that being secretary to an important person (such as the omnivorous Preysing) on his Atlantic crossing will give her a start. Her touching song “Girl in the Mirror” reflects that hopefulness even as we want to send her a warning telegram. A strange bright piece of punctuation is The Two Jimmys (Ian Coleman and Solomon Parker III) in their highly carbonated and infectious song and dance “Maybe My Baby Loves Me.” That high note of fun gives way to Elizaveta Grushinskaya (Natascia Diaz), prima ballerina, and her entourage as they perform “Fire & Ice.” At 49-plus years, she knows more viscerally than anyone that her professional life is closing. Her loving aides, which include the faithful assistant, Raffaela, (Crystal Mosser) have high stakes in the show going on. But for all her star reputation and delicate beauty, she is the one who hears the lackluster applause. Baron Felix von Gaigern (Nkrumah Gatling), a titled European aristocrat who is, of course, broke, strains our sympathies for his entitled habits. Nevertheless, when he sparks the only true love affair of the evening (“Love Can’t Happen”) with Elizabeta, his ardor is convincing, which makes the unexpected events to follow more tragic. Perhaps most engaging of the characters is Bobby Smith’s portrayal of Otto Kringelein, a Jewish accountant who is dying. Looking back on a life of colorless tedium, he has decided to spend what time he has left and all his money in a place of luxury. Some hardened prejudices erupt when he shows up, clearly not the “sort of person” the Grand is accustomed to serving, but a word from the Baron eases the situation. Kringelein’s unfamiliar joy is reflected in the touching “Table with a View/At the Grand Hotel.” Characters are dressed in Robert Perdziola’s costumes of pearl and silver greys tailored up or down to reflect the social standing of the wearer. Convincing range, from Elizaveta’s fabulous fox furs to the grime and dirt of the scullery workers.


Solomon Parker III (Jimmy 2), Nicki Elledge (Flaemmchen) and Ian Anthony Coleman (Jimmy 1) star in Grand Hotel at Signature Theatre. It takes awhile, but ultimately we invest in the stories, take an interest in the outcome, and admire the singing to Jon Kalbfleisch’s orchestra tucked away behind a scrim. Some might

find an hour and forty-five a lengthy sit without a break, but there’s really no coherent place to pause without disrupting the forward motion of unfolding stories.

We shall never forget FAITH IN THE COMMUNITY Pastor Brad Hales

This month, I will have lived in Culpeper, Virginia for the last 14 years. I have had the honor to pastor a church, set on boards, give battlefield tours, pray at several community events and meet some

wonderful people. This is a great place to live. But one opportunity which I’ve been provided which gives me the most honor and humility is when I’m invited to provide over funerals at the National Cemetery for veterans and their families. Whether it was for the World War II veteran who landed on the beaches of Normandy during D-Day or the Korean/Vietnam War veteran who fought in the jungles of South East Asia, having the privilege to say goodbye to these hero’s is an unbelievable experience. Simply, by they’re donning the uniform of this country and sacrificing for our freedom, that’s why should always remember and never forget. The reason why we recognize Memorial Day. Yes, Memorial Day. The day which is far more than picnics, barbeques, vacations, and the opening of swimming pools. It’s the day as a nation when we pay our upmost respect to the brave for allowing us to continue to live in liberty rather than bondage. We pay homage to those who defended the Constitution of the United States of America with their sweat and blood. In John 15:13 Jesus says, “Greater love has no one then this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.” There is no one greater then those who are willing to serve their country. But it has not been an easy road for many veterans. Along with coming home with PTSD, dismemberment and mental health concerns which drives some to take their lives, this service has come at a great cost. That’s what we experienced with my great Uncle Jack. He was in the armored tank division under General Patten in WWII. When he came back from the war he began to isolate himself, distancing from the family and literally became a recluse. Attempts to reach out to him were futile.

Several years ago, my dad received a call from a rental manager telling him that they had found Jack’s dead body in his apartment. He had been dead several days, and no one knew. Just imagine. As so many men and women have responded to the call of this nation in both times of war and peace, it was to preserve the freedom of the republic. The freedom of speech, the freedom of religion, the freedom of assembly, the freedom of the press, the freedom to vote, the freedom to bear arms, and the list goes on. So, since this freedom has been brought for us at a price, what is our responsibility to preserve it? In I Peter 2:16 it is written, “Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover up for evil but living as servants of God.” Living free has some different dimensions. First, Jesus Christ of Nazareth who shed blood, died on the cross and rose from the dead has freed us from the chains of sin. Second, living free means taking personal responsibility for our actions. Unfortunately, some believe that freedom represents doing whatever they want, focusing on self, not interested what others have to say. But that is not the essence of real liberty. Freedom means caring for yourself, your family, your faith, and your community. And thirdly, living free means taking care of your neighbor. Last month I drove out to Ohio to see my mom. Once there, the phone rang, and it was her neighbor Kathy wondering what unknown car was in my mom’s drive. Ever since my dad’s death Kathy and her husband Dave have watched over my mom, spent time with her when she was ill, cooked her meals and plowed out her snow, covered drive. They see it as their responsibility to care for their aging neighbor. Memorial Day is not just another day on our over scheduled calendars. It’s a day of memory, a day to give thanks for all those who were willing to give their lives, so we could have life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. For those who selflessly gave for their love of country, we will always remember and never forget. Brad Hales is the pastor of Reformation Lutheran Church in

Culpeper. Along with being ordained for over 24 years, he is also the Director of Domestic Mission for the

North American Lutheran Church. You can contact Pastor Hales at bhales@

Brandy Station Volunteer Fire Department Fair and Parade returns After a two-year absence, the Brandy Station Volunteer Fire Department Annual Fair and Parade will return to Brandy Station in 2019. The Fire Department membership recently chose to once again have this annual fundraising event and finalized a contract with a midway provider. The 2019 Fair will be held Aug. 7-10, 2019. The annual Parade will be on Thursday evening August 8th. With schools reopening in Culpeper County on August 12th, 2019, our fair would be an excellent opportunity to enjoy some family fun just before the kids return! The Fire Department has signed a contract with RC Cole Shows Amusements from Covington, Virginia to provide the midway. Cole Shows Amusement Company has been supplying magnificent amusement ride midways to Fairs, Festivals and Corporate Events across Virginia for over twenty-five years. They most recently appeared in Vienna, Virginia at the Viva Vienna Festival, the Fauquier County Fair in Warrenton, Virginia, the Shenandoah County Fair in Woodstock, Virginia, in Orange, Virginia at the Orange Volunteer Fire Company Fair, and the Arlington County Fair in Arlington, Virginia. We are extremely thrilled to have this fine show provide its amusements for our event this summer. The Brandy Station Volunteer Fire Department was founded and chartered in 1951. The Brandy Station Volunteer Fire Department Auxiliary sponsored

the first carnival in August 1951, later turning that responsibility over to the firemen in August of 1955. The Fire Department has received numerous requests over the last two years to resume this traditional event. The fair can take you down memory lane. It is a nostalgic event for “older” folks and younger ones alike. The fair is a means to cement relationships with friends and neighbors who are kept apart by busy schedules throughout the year. More details about the Brandy Station Volunteer Fire Department Fair will be coming soon. Please watch our web site or visit us on Facebook at and mark your calendars now for Aug. 7-10, 2019.

Weekly Tarotscope - May 2 The Hierophant, 5 of Pentacles The Hierophant is the perfect card to Cara Cutro kick off the month of May, as he is ruled by Taurus and encapsulates the essence of the astrological season we happen to be in right now. Strong and solid on the earth. When we see The Hierophant, it’s time to examine our belief systems and trust ourselves in determining what is working and what isn’t. Is there anything we are believing that’s hindering our perception? Should we seek wise counsel to become clear about what beliefs we are holding? We may need to remain within a structure of some system that we’ve been working within. Especially if it has served us well. However, if you are attached to


outmoded beliefs, know that you can trust yourself to decide to let them go. The 5 of Pentacles in combination with The Hierophant speaks to beliefs around giving and receiving. Are you thinking in a way that allows you to give too much of your precious time and energy? Examining how we invest our time and energy is a strong theme with these two cards together. This combo could also be about a commitment to some type of investment or giving. Cara Cutro is a spirit centered teacher and life coach residing in Sperryville, VA. She is an herbalist, massage therapist, reiki master, intuitive counselor, tarot reader, and the owner of Abracadabra Massage & Wellness and the Wisdomkeepers School. For a full list of services or to setup an appointment with her or one of her team members, book online www. or call 540-878-7085.
