LOCAL NEWS ToyMakerz star wows car show crowd on July 4 ➤ TV star has always loved tinkering and brought his love of innovation to Culpeper By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer David Ankin’s creations turned heads at Culpeper Renaissance Inc.’s annual car and motorcycle show on July 4. The star of ToyMakerz returned to Culpeper to show off some of his creations and sign autographs for his fans. “I’ve been involved with Culpeper now for eight or 10 years, we shot our second episode in this town, and Culpeper has always been good to me,” Ankin said. Ankin and his team manufacture the chassis for the Tanom Motors Invader, produced in Culpeper. They’ve filmed episodes of ToyMakerz, which is moving to the History Channel in January from Velocity, in Culpeper and on Wednesday he helped judge the annual car and bike show. “It’s always nice to come down and enjoy an event like this, where some people don’t realize this car show has a great cars and some great people,” Ankin said. “A lot of times at a car show like this,

Town Council discusses moving election to May Culpeper Town Coucnil voted 5-4 Tuesday night to approve a discussion the town election back to May. In 2013, voters of Culpeper passed Referendum 1 with 85% of the vote to move town elections for mayor and council from May to the November ballot in the odd year elections. The discussion will take place on Tuesday, July 24 at 9:30 a.m. in the Personnel and Ordinance Committee located at the Culpeper Economic Development Center 803 S. Main St Culpeper. Councilman Jon Russell spoke out against the discussion. "Imagine my surprise at last night’s council meeting when five of nine councilmembers approved a discussion to move the town election back to May in spite of 85% of voters," Russell said. He encouraged residents to come out and voice their opinion at the meeting July 23. "If these councilmembers are successful in overturning the vote of the people, taxpayers will have to pay over $10,000 for a special May election and voter participation will decrease to 9% again," he said.

Be the Change Foundation offers fall business workshops Be the Change Foundation is offering a 12-week series of business workshops for women in Fauquier and surrounding counties at Lord Fairfax Community College starting September 11. Conducted by local professionals in their respective fields, previous participants learned about how to create a business plan, the relationship between profit and loss, keeping the books, marketing, social networking and using social media, legal pitfalls and whether it’s a good idea to hire a relative. Each session was introduced by local business owners who shared


Riley Reynolds (Editor's note: This is weekly series highlighting members of Culpeper's Youth Council. To join Culpeper Youth, go to to apply.) As President of Culpeper Youth, summer is a weird time. Some of our most ambitious ideas need to explored and planned over the summer but most of us are off exploring ourselves. That’s why this year we voted to knock our normal three meetings a month, down to a one meeting a month on whatever day the most of us could manage to get there. And with the lessened meeting schedule we have all explored some different aspect or program. I have been home on and off during the summer. When I’m home I am going to yoga twice a day at Golds Gym and going to Raven’s Nest in between classes, sometimes taking an hour to have a cup of coffee and talk with my Vice President, Josh. Or, I’m off in Orange at the best used bookstore I’ve been to in a while, or I’m thrifting with my Treasurer, Angie. Even when CY says goodbye we still hang out! That’s probably one of my favorite things about CY, we’re close. When I’m not at home I’ve been on a college campus! I was on Longwood’s Campus earlier this summer, in June, attending Virginia’s American Legion Auxiliary Girls State, a program where you learn about the local and state government by creating and electing it! As of this week I am in Long Island, studying Journalism at Long Island University. Next week I will be in Brooklyn, at the Long Island University Brooklyn Campus, studying the U.N. and Global Affairs! At the end of next week I get to come back home and meet with my fellow CY Youth Advisory Council members, I can’t wait to see them all.

their stories and offered advice. The debut series of classes graduated six people in the spring, including Warrenton resident Elizabeth Verna. “I really enjoyed the program,” said Verna. “I gained valuable knowledge about small business. These personal stories, along with the lesson each week, offered so much insight and encouragement.” The series was previously limited to residents of Fauquier County, but board members recently decided to open up participation in the fall to surrounding counties. Be the Change Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission is to empower, strengthen and inspire women. The cost of the 12-week series is $250. Financial aid is available. Registration is now open for the next series of workshops.

➤ Car, from Page 2 Ankin said it, like all of his creations, is street legal. “It’s just a wow factor,” Ankin said. His other custom made car - a ¾ scale Grand Prix car - also was a hit with the crowd. That car was handmade by Ankin and his team, with only the tires not being custom made. The other custom job he brought belonged to his business partner David Young, of Culpeper. He explained that Young just retired from Merrill Lynch and he never had a hot rod, so Ankin built him one. The 1963 Ford Ranchero featuring a small block engine was a beast of a machine. “It’s a bad boy,” Ankin said. Ankin said the custom made cars take about a year and a half to make, while the ones that are retrofitted - like Camaros and Mustangs - take just a few weeks. Asked what his favorite car he’s made is, Ankin just smiled. “I haven’t built it yet,” Ankin said. “I’m almost done with my season two finale car for this year. I’m already working on next year’s season finale car.” Building vehicles is something he’s enjoyed for a long time, starting as a youth and continuing through his days as a stuntman

at Universal Studios for their Batman and Water World shows. “As a kid, you built the lawn mowers, and the go-karts and mini bikes,” Ankin said. “When you got older you wanted the nice toys and you couldn’t afford to spend $50,000 to $100,000 so you just had to learn to build it. Now once a year I built one car you’ve never seen.” Denver Jenkins, of Culpeper, marveled at the creations Ankin brought. “I’ve known him for a while, we did the Invader stuff together,” Jenkins said. “It’s unique, Sandy (Hall) and David (Young) had a real good idea with it. It was a pleasure to do something that unique.” Unique rides were the highlight of the car show, including Scott Wieduwilt’s 2017 Ford Mustang Shelby GT - his “Deadpool” car. The ruby red creation has a black stripe down the front and his family gave him the idea to name it and use it to promote cancer research. “My granddaughter named it after we went to 7-11 for a Slurpee and she saw the Deadpool promotion,” Wieduwilt said. “My wife is a cancer survivor and so is Deadpool so I thought that made sense.”

BIZ BIO The People of Wellspring: Susan Suleske, PA Susan Suleske may be new to the Wellspring health team, but she’s a familiar face to Madison residents. Suleske, who began her role as physician assistant at Wellspring’s Madison family practice in early June, is no stranger to the area, having practiced with M. David Schenck, MD, at Madison Family Physicians for the past seven years. “We built a great practice over the years, and I have enjoyed the Madison community,” Suleske said. In her role at Wellspring, Suleske will continue to work with Schenck as supervising physician at the very same location occupied by Madison Family Physicians. Aside from time spent earning her physician assistant degree in North Carolina and a year in Arizona working in a geriatric clinic, Suleske has stayed close to her Culpeper roots. “I have a large family in the area, and it’s nice to be able to stay connected with them,” she said. Health care in general—and family practice in particular—were natural choices for Suleske. “I have always felt my role in

life would be to care for others,” Suleske said. “My early experiences as a member of the Fredericksburg volunteer rescue squad and an ER tech for Culpeper Susan Suleske, PA Memorial Hospital really helped me feel my calling to the PA profession.” That calling also drew Suleske toward family practice. “In family practice, the patient’s entire health picture is considered,” Suleske said. “Even if a patient requires the care of multiple specialists, we’re always there for them as a ‘home base’ they can depend on.” And even though she may be new to Wellspring, Suleske’s approach fits perfectly with Wellspring’s patientcentered philosophy. “I think it’s important to build relationships with patients so that they can feel empowered to participate in their own health care,” Suleske said.

VeloConcepts/18 Grams Coffee Lab provides precision By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer Come to get fitted for a bike at VeloConcepts and stay for the coffee. Bicycles and cafes don’t seem like they would have much common except for being close in the alphabet, but owner Joe Coppola of VeloConcepts says it’s a natural fit for bicycle enthusiasts to also have a love of coffee. That’s why he’s opened his boutique bike shop with an equally trendy coffee shop - 18 Grams Coffee Lab. The two businesses had a soft opening the weekend of June 30 and will continue to refine their business model for the next two or three weeks before hosting their grand opening. What started as a hobby at home of brewing high end espresso turned into a full time passion for Coppola and his wife Carolyn. He has run VeloConcepts for about three years - previously being located at Crossroads Parkway near the Department of Motor Vehicles. After that lease expired he floated around town looking for the per➤ See VeloConcepts, Page 7

➤ VeloConcepts, from Page 6 fect location - which he found at 201 Waters Place. Located at the rear of the building that houses Beer Hound Brewery, the cafe and bike shop seems like a perfect fit in the neo-industrial setting. “Our location is very important to us,” Coppola said. “Because we host so many rides, we wanted to have a place that has ample parking, that we could easily host rides that are safe to get out of town.” VeloConcepts isn’t your typical bike shop - being more of a showroom than an actual store, Coppola explained. “We’re definitely geared toward the cycling enthusiast,” Coppola said. “We’re not the mom and pop shop. If someone wants to come in and buy a hybrid to ride with their kids, we can get it, but it’s just not our sweet spot.” Coppola and his staff focus more on finding out what the customer wants - do they need an endurance bike, a race bike or an aero bike. Then they fit them via a high tech, computer controlled fitting system, the GURU Dynamic Fit Unit, this unite allows dynamic repositioning of the fit while on the bike. They also leverage the gebioMIZED pressure mapping system which analyzes the pressure distribution of where the rider sits on the bike and how that affects their fit. It’s that hands on and intensive customer service that drips over to their coffee business. At 18 grams, they offer types of coffee espresso-based drinks, a traditional filter based coffee and a single origin pour origin that changes depending on the season. The process is heavily focused on precision and weight - they weigh each single origin pour over and have a computer program that shows them exactly when to continue adding water and exactly what weight the coffee should measure when finished. “It’s a very unique experience,” Coppola said. “One of the things is we’re working with Counter Culture to supply all of our coffee. Our single origins change seasonally, based on what’s available and what’s good.” They single origin being offered now is an

Ethiopian bean, the batch brew is a single origin from Columbia and the espresso is a blend from Counter Culture called "Big Trouble" which currently features a Guatemalan and Colombian coffees VeloConcepts has hosted rides for years including a popular Thursday and Saturday ride and between 20 and 40 riders were always looking for a place to hang out. “In the back of my mind I always had the idea of adding a cafe to it,” Coppola said. “Once we kind of saw this new space, and we saw how much space we had, it made perfect sense to add a cafe into it. The reality of the situation is that bike shops today are struggling. Bike sales have been down consistently over the last bunch of years. You’re starting to see bike shops expanding and offering other things besides bikes.” They hope to add their ABC license in the near future to offer wine and beer as well and they already offer light and healthy food choices. Avocado toast, banana ricotta toast and a curry chicken salad on toast are the current offerings with acai bowls coming. All offerings can be made gluten free as well. Coppola and VeloConcepts are heavily involved in Culpeper’s cycling community - as he created and works with Culpeper County Parks and Rec to create the route for the annual Culpeper Cycling Century. He said the community in Culpeper is unique and welcoming. “The interesting thing about Culpeper compared to other areas is that it’s very unified,” Coppola said. “Everybody rides together.” He hopes to spread that vibe through neighboring regions. “We’re trying to become a destination store, we’re not just here for the locals, we’re for the people coming from D.C., Richmond and Charlottesville too,” Coppola said. The cafe is currently open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. but the plan is to open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and possibly later. The bike shop is open from noon to when the cafe closes and Coppola said all employees are cross trained so they can all help out. It all ties into their philosophy of precision.

HOME & GARDEN Here comes another one just like the other one? Between rains, which most reptiles avoid, I’ve had two sightings of box turtles this year where I live — one as I was driving down the driveway, the other in the yard next to my house. While I couldn’t stop to check out the one in the driveway, I did take a good look at the one in the yard and wondered if I’d seen it before. The turtle was digging for food under the sod, judging by the disturbed earth beneath its rear end and the dirt on its beak. Turtles have a varied diet, and it could have been going after the earthworms or grubs that are plentiful there. I hated to disturb the turtle but wanted to check its gender, so I carefully lifted it up, looked at 2018_3rdThur_Ad_TIMES_JUL.pdf 1


the plastron (bottom shell) without turning it over, since that can be very disconcerting for turtles. The plastron was concave, which indicated the turtle was a male. The depression is to accommodate the male’s mounting the female during mating. Both the plastron and the carapace (top shell) of a box turtle are made from fused bones. This turtle was shy even before I picked it up, barely sticking his out his nose when I tried to photograph him. I decided to sit down and wait until he came out, but the brief lull in the rain that got me outside ended, and I headed inside. Virginia’s native box turtle, which I’ve always loved and, as a kid, kept as a pet, was officially known as the eastern box turtle (Terrapene carolina) then. But the recent advent of DNA testing led to its being reclassified in 2012 as a subspecies, Terrapene carolina carolina, by a ➤ See Wild, Page 9 5/19/18 2:51 PM

is often brown with a few faded markings but can be brightly colored as well. The body and head usually has some combination of the colors on the shells. The markings on the one side of the carapace tend to be mirrored on the other side. Although I’d shot most of the turtles from only one side most years, and sometimes from the front, the patterns on the two turtles I’d photographed mating seemed to match photos from other years. The mating male looks like the one I photographed this year, and shots of lone turtles I’d taken in 2014 and last year. It’s generally hard to tell plastrons apart, since most have distinctive markings, but his face looked similar in all the photos. The markings on his mate’s top shell as well as her face were clear in the photos and seemed to match a female I had photographed last year trying to lay eggs in my driveway. Wanting to discourage her from mating in such an unsafe location, I photographed her for a while, which apparently was enough of a disturbance to get her to move on. Later, my landlady said she spotted a turtle laying eggs near her house, which is nearby, so probably the same turtle. I found two other turtles among those I’d photographed only once:

➤ Wild, from Page 8 committee of scientific organizations led by the Society for the Study of Amphibians and Reptiles. The turtle’s common name is now woodland box turtle. I’ve been living in my current house, near Sperryville, for seven years, and I’ve seen box turtles every year, often wondering if I’m seeing the same individuals from year to year. But I’d never actively tried to tell them apart, as reflected in the photos I’ve taken of them, which are often from just one side or the front. It was only after I’d photographed this turtle that I thought of comparing all the photos to see if I could sort out the individuals in them. In 2011, I had taken a shot of two box turtles mating on a hill, with the ambitious male having fallen over onto his back and the female looking oblivious to his situation. After taking the photos, I left the pair alone but checked on them every few minutes, knowing that a turtle on its back will die if it can’t right itself, but it wasn’t long until both had disappeared. The color and pattern of markings of individual box turtles can vary in bold and subtle ways. The carapace is usually brown, sometimes black, with markings ranging from olive to yellow or orange.

one young male in 2012 and one mature male with a striking yellow head in 2014. After photographing them, I never saw them again. Strangely, I’ve yet to find any baby box turtles here. But while adults are usually safe in their shells, babies and eggs can be gobbled up by skunks, foxes, coyotes, raccoons, opossums, chipmunks, snakes, crows, owls and many other predators. Woodland box turtles stick close to where they hatched out, ranging over about three to 11 acres, with a population density of up to four individuals per acre. And some can live longer than 100 years. This

R E A L E S TAT E Local Businesses Partner to Support Operation Finally Home Operation FINALLY HOME and a number of local businesses are in the early stages of planning to honor a military hero with a mortgage-free home in Culpeper, Virginia. The nonprofit organization provides mortgage-free homes to wounded, ill and injured veterans and widows of the fallen as well as home modifications for injured veterans at no cost. To date, Operation FINALLY HOME has over 250 projects in 33 states which have been completed, under construction or planning. CTS Properties, a client of Long & Foster Real Estate agent Jackie Hitchcock, got involved with the project through the Structural Building Component Association of the Capital Area (SBCACap), which represents manufacturers of engineered floor, wall and roof structural components. “The Washington chapter of the SBCA has wanted to participate in this cause for some time,” said Ken-

ny Shifflett, who co-owns CTS Properties with Stacie Shifflett. “They’ve been holding charity golfing events for the last few years to help raise money to purchase a lot for the home.” CTS Properties owns a number of lots in the Rillhurst Estates community in Culpeper and is donating a portion of the cost of one of its lots to the cause. Shifflett said Gene Frogale, president of SBCACap, has been the driving force behind the project and in asking members of SBCACap to donate services and materials. The builder of record for the home will be Anthony Clatterbuck of Graystone Homes, who has been building homes in the Culpeper area for more than 20 years. On July 15, Hitchcock and CTS Properties will host a barbecue and open house at Rillhurst Estates to promote the charity project and the new homes community. Representatives from SBCACap, Graystone

Homes and Jefferson Home Builders will be in attendance. Operation FINALLY HOME, which is based in Texas, also hopes to have a representative at the event. Local community members are welcome to come out to learn about the project. Shifflett said they are encouraging other homebuilding trades who are interested in getting involved to come out as well. “Operation FINALLY HOME is a fantastic organization, and we’re so thankful to the SBCA and SBCACap for leading this effort,” Hitchcock said. “Supporting military families and veterans has been one of Long & Foster’s primary philanthropic focuses, so this is a cause that resonates with us as a company and one that I am pleased to support.” As the project is still in its early stages, there is still much to be done. The build team along with Operation FINALLY HOME will plan a town hall meeting to determine what do-

nations can be expected from trades and suppliers, and then will work to raise funds to cover any additional costs not covered by donations before holding a groundbreaking and other events. Open House & Barbecue Information • Sunday, July 15 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. • Location: Rillhurst Estates, Section IV, adjacent to 15198 Rillhurst Drive, Culpeper, VA 22701 • Jackie Hitchcock of Long & Foster Real Estate, representatives from CTS Properties, Operation FINALLY HOME, SBCACap, Graystone Homes and Jefferson Home Builders. • Who’s Invited: Community members who are interested in learning about Operation FINALLY HOME, as well as those interested in building a new home in Rillhurst Estates.

Fauquier Host Lions Club dissolves After a long, difficult and emotional time the Fauquier Host Lions Club has made the painful but necessary decision to essentially turn in their charter and join the Warrenton Sunrise Lions Club. This arrangement will allow the citizens of Fauquier to continue receiving the support they have received since the Host club was chartered in February 1949. This decision was driven by illness, death and departure from the local area by a significant number of members. The remaining members, devoted as ever, could not gain the traction necessary to recruit new members in sufficient numbers to continuing to support the community as they have in the past. Once this decision was made, club membership immediately began to identify the needs of the charitable organizations they have supported over the years. Paramount on this list was the needs of the local Heads Start program. Their primary need is transportation for the children doctors visits, etc., and to carry

various supplies used by the program to support their children. Without serious debate, the club elected to use a sizeable portion of the financial resources they have earned over the years to purchase a cargo van to satisfy this need. After this purchase has been completed, outstanding bills paid, and grants promised for this year are delivered, an financial resources remaining will be given as a grant to the Sunrise Club. Fauquier Host in negotiations with Warrenton Sunrise has been assured that selected funding commitments made in the past will continue to be funded after the consolidation of the two Lions Clubs are complete. Over these many years that the Fauquier Hose Lions Club has been a leader in supporting the needy in their community. It is only appropriate that the long record of service performed by the group of dedicated citizens ends with a gift that benefits a significant number of young folks in the Fauquier County community.

Rappahannock County approves tower lease for paging system ➤ Issue now heads to planning commission for further recommendations By Sara Schonhardt For the Rappahannock News After months of deliberations, the Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a resolution last week that will allow the county to sign a lease agreement with Community Wireless Structures to put its public safety paging system on a proposed tower off Woodward Road. “I believe that time is of the essence, and I do believe we don’t have any other options here,” said Supervisor Chris Parrish before moving to adopt the resolution. The board has had multiple discussions in recent months over the lease terms and location of the proposed tower, which is needed to support Sperryville Fire and Rescue’s paging antenna. At a board meeting last month, supervisors agreed for County Administrator Garrey Curry and County Attorney Art Goff to negotiate lease terms with CWS and request that the company consider relocating its proposed tower fur-

ther off the road. In a letter, CWS declined the request, saying it chose that specific location to “maximize elevation, avoid sloping terrain and facilitate access to the tower compound.” The company, which already has a ground lease for the spot, also noted that it has spent “significant” time and money to determine the site’s viability. CWS said it has received a letter of intent from Shentel, a highspeed internet service provider, and is working to secure a second cellular phone carrier to utilize the tower. Given that interest, CWS has sought a zoning permit even without the county’s commitment. Having multiple users would reduce the county’s rent, which under the terms of the lease agreement would start at $950 a month if no other cellular providers are included as tenants and drop to $0 if there are three or more other lessors. The alternative to approving the lease would be for the county to build a separate tower solely for the fire and rescue paging system at an estimated cost of $250,000. “The main thing is we don’t have the expense of the tower to start with,” Parrish told The Rap-

pahannock News. “If this goes through, we essentially get a paging system for free.” The planning commission is currently considering a zoning application submitted by CWS for the tower. It will hold a public hearing at the next planning commission meeting followed by another public hearing at the BOS meeting in August. The planning commission can issue a recommendation to build the tower, but the final decisions will come from the BOS. The proposed location on Woodward Road has met some resistance from residents who worry it will ruin their views, harm property values and possibly their health. “A cell tower 800 feet across Woodward Road could decrease the value of our property upwards of 25 percent if we try to sell … and would make it difficult for us to rent one of our homes,” Mike Luthi, who lives across the street from the proposed site and relies on money from a rental unite there to supplement his limited income, said at last week’s BOS meeting. CWS recently launched a balloon at the site to demonstrate the tower’s height. Luthi said the test was not an accurate repre-

sentation of its visual impact. He urged the BOS to separate the need for a paging system tower from one for cellular service. “One tower is to help in saving lives, and we consider that a necessity, we have no problem with that,” he said. “The other one will do nothing but create a financial burden for our family.” Several members of Sperryville’s Volunteer Rescue Squad spoke at the BOS meeting about the urgency of updating an aging paging system one described as held together by bubblegum and Duct Tape. “The equipment is obsolete,” said Lieutenant Todd Summers. “We’re using borrowed parts to keep together the emergency support system for this county.” “We often simply don’t get emergency pages,” said Harold Beebout, chief of Sperryville’s Volunteer Rescue Squad. An earlier proposal to locate a tower on the Sperryville Volunteer Fire Department property was rejected because the land was dubbed structurally unsound. The BOS has reviewed other potential sites for the tower but determined that the cost to use the CWS site combined with its paging coverage makes it a favorable location.

Real Estate

Rapp real estate market down and up By John McCaslin Rappahannock News Editor The number of real estate transactions in the heart of the Piedmont — Rappahannock, Fauquier, Culpeper and Madison — decreased 5 percent for the second quarter of 2018 as compared to 2017, and Rappahannock continues to see the sharpest decrease in activity. “Similar to the first quarter, Rappahannock was the slowest market, with land transactions decreasing 50 percent and residential transactions decreasing 14 percent for the second quarter,” says Adam Beroza, vice president for sales and marketing with Cheri Woodard Realty in Sperryville. Then again, the agent points out that when gauging real estate transactions in a county the size of Rappahannock, only a few sales — or lack thereof — can greatly impact percentages. Specifically in Rappahannock, Beroza says 25 residential properties sold in the second quarter of 2018 compared to 29 residential properties in the same quarter of 2017. Year-to-date, transactions are down 14 percent, although that represents only seven sales. The majority of the decrease is in the $250,000 to $500,000 range, which is down 45 percent; the rest of the market segments showed

year over year growth. “It is worth noting that several properties over $1 million have sold this year, which brings the total transaction value for the county above last year even though transactions are down,” he says. There are currently 112 homes for sale in Rappahannock County which is about a 16-month supply based on the last five years sales. The average list price for all homes on the market is $748,918 and the average days on market is 257. Year to date, homes are selling 8.9 percent below list price. As for land sales in Rappahannock, five properties sold in the second quarter of 2018 as compared to 10 properties in the second quarter of 2017. Land sales were down 45 percent in the county. There are currently 62 lots on the market in Rappahannock, which is roughly a two-year supply. Residential transactions in Fauquier decreased by 10 percent, while land transactions were up 10 percent. In Madison County, both residential and land transactions were up 18 percent and 86 percent respectively (the 86 percent increase in land transactions was only six additional sales). Culpeper County saw a 4 percent decrease in residential sales and a 57 percent (8 transactions) increase in land sales.

Noel Coward appears in a small role with cameo appearances by Marlene Dietrich, Tony Curtis and Hepburn’s then-husband Mel Ferrer. Directed by Richard Quine, this romantic comedy was not well received by critics when

released but over the years has earned a reputation as a guilty pleasure for those who enjoy in-joke movie spoofs and an absurdist storyline played out against the glorious backdrop of the City of Light. 110 min. 35mm archival print.

Back in the Summer of 1975 This week I found myself giving multiple presentations on sharks to a highly energetic and enthusiastic group of my Marshall Conner “little friends” at Kid Central’s summer camp program. The presentations were a mix of personal interactions with sharks and my evolution of thought on these oftenmisunderstood creatures. I told them about the sharks I have encountered, caught and photographed over my lifetime, but the story that entertained them the most was my nostalgic recollection of a steamy summer when a Peter Benchley novel was adapted to film – and director Steven Spielberg incited fear at many a coastal town. It was the summer of 1975 I told the campers – this alone made them drop their mouths open in awe of my age. It’s the reaction that says you are getting old. One kid points out to me that I’m going bald. The story went something like this: I was into fishing, comic books, dinosaurs, backyard football and all things military 43 years ago. I had just watched the movie Jaws with my father, a Vietnam veteran and Army paratrooper. He was a city-boy as they like to say around here. He was a dad who liked to watch old movies, sketch, read and study history. The movie freaked him out about the ocean just like everyone else that summer. The ocean waves had a slight green hue and the water was a bit cool for June. The air was hot and North Carolina’s state bird, the mosquito, buzzed with a blood-thirsty glee in the shadows of a wooden walkway to my family’s vacation rental near Topsail Beach. Did you know mosquitos kill 725,000 people annually in the world? Sharks kill about 65 peryear. I was an 8-year-old playing in the surf. I loved the ocean – it was always one of my favorite places to be. I loved body-surfing and simply watching the waves break. I loved the ocean’s beauty and its cruel justice. After the film Jaws, the ocean felt a little bit

less friendly. My parents noticed a variation in my usual pattern of bounding straight into the surf for a swim. Their ocean-loving son was swimming in a distinct pattern around three round ladies with rubber flowers dangling from their sun hats. The kid swam in a tightening circular pattern around the cackling trio. The ladies were largely unaware of the scrawny kid using their buoy-like presence as a decoy to trick a more sinister creature that surely lurked somewhere in the shadowy depths. As I emerged from my swim my parents asked me a question, a question that revealed a fear I had cleverly hidden. “Why were you swimming around those ladies Marshall?” asked my mom. I answered her with the best logic I could muster. “It was for safety mom. You see I was worried about sharks. Those ladies would surely catch a Great White’s attention more than a skinny kid, right? I thought any shark would eat them first

had ever heard such an announcement in an airport. Nice, I thought. Time passed, then passengers began gathering at the window. I joined in to view a military ceremony on the tarmac. Men in uniform, salutes, music, a folded flag, and then a white coffin being loaded onto our plane. After we boarded, we learned from the cockpit that we had the honor of carrying the

and give me a little time to escape,” I reasoned. The beach had very few swimmers that week. In fact, that whole summer people seemed a bit warier of the “Man in the Gray Suit,” as the surfers like to call sharks. The movie theaters, in contrast, were packed with people in the summer of 1975. Like millions of other kids, I had experienced Jaws on the big screen multiple times. My friends and I tallied how many times we saw it and we could recount every horrifying scene. It still holds up. The sinister tuba notes, Capt. Quint’s speech about the sinking of the USS Indianapolis, poor Ben Gardner’s head bobbing out of a boat wreck and all the bloody morsels of dark humor within this magical ribbon of nightmarish dreams. It’s rather funny but I looked up to Quint in the aftermath of the film---I admired his salty swagger. He was a fisherman and World War II veteran like the men I looked up to as a kid. He wasn’t soft, scared or whiny. He even went out in a spiteful spray of claret as the shark chomped him in half. His only real fault dawned on me later as a fisherman. Capt. Quint was perhaps the worst charter captain ever. Let’s review the facts. He fished out of revenge. He destroyed his own radio. He ranted at his customers and made fun of Hooper’s “silly, soft, money-counting hands.” He let a customer drive his boat. He drank on the job. He burned up his own engine. The shark he’s trying to catch eats his boat piece-by-piece and he caps it all off by sliding down the shark’s gullet. His customer must then shoot an oxygen tank lodged in an angry shark’s snapping yap while Quint’s beloved boat Orca slips into a watery grave. Thankfully, the shark is blown to bits and Hooper and Chief Brody swim back home. We can assume no tips were required. The film in retrospect remains great, but it is also disservice to sharks and humans. Statistics show that there is a 1-11.5 million chance of a shark attack on those swimming in the ocean. These are also the odds of finding my old Jaws t-shirt or my 8-track copy of John William’s amazing soundtrack. Sharks are not monsters—they are predators perfectly suited for their environment like lawyers. Remember, don’t skinny dip after midnight and always get out of the water if you hear a tuba.

body of a World War II fighter pilot back to Washington, DC for burial in Arlington National Cemetery. He had been missing for 70 years. I, for one, was chocked up. When we landed in Washington, we all waited until a brief ceremony on the tarmac ended and a black van filled with military men followed the hearse to its official destination. One of my seat mates was a young

mother who worked for Homeland Security. We shared the honor we felt at being passengers on this special flight. God Bless America, the country who values the lives of her fighting men and never gives up on bringing them home. Even when it takes 70 years.. Sally Humphries Culpeper

Roadmap for an Executor – Seven Steps The call comes late one evening, or early the next morn. Whether Katherine Charapich a client or an inquiry from a stranger seeking guidance, when I hear the question, “My loved one has passed, now what?” I so wish I could take away the pain – ease the grief. The interruption - there is nothing in life that prepares one for the passing of a family member or a friend. Not only is one grieving the loss of a loved one, often the same individual finds him or herself named as the Executor (or Executrix) in the decedent’s will. Out of respect for the decedent, the Executor will want to ensure that her intent for her estate is honored. The following is a roadmap for the Executor, outlining the possible steps to take if you have been named in a will as an Executor. Please keep in mind, that each will is different, and there may be variations to address or situations that arise that need specific legal advice from an estate planning attorney, an answer from the Commissioner of Accounts, or an opinion from the Circuit Court. The following instructions are applicable to the Commonwealth of Virginia (the Commonwealth) and are not comprehensive or case specific. Nor are they intended as legal advice. Step One: Qualification of Executor/Executrix When your loved one passes away and you have been named as Executor, you may choose to submit the will for probate and qualify as the Executor. Prior to submitting the will, you are encouraged to seek legal advice. In the event that the estate is insolvent, meaning the debts outweigh the assets, consulting with an estate planning attorney is critical. To probate an estate in the Commonwealth, you must submit the Last Will and Testament to the Circuit Court of the county in which the decedent resided at the time of death, and qualify as the Executor. The Clerk of the Circuit Court will want the following documentation prior to setting the time for the appointment: (1) Last Will and Testament, (2) Death Certificate, (3) Probate Information Form, (4) List of Heirs, and the (5) Probate Tax Return. Unless an asset falls within the definition of a Small Estate (valued under $50,000) and can be handled


under a Small Estate Affidavit, it is necessary to probate an estate when the decedent has solely held assets; that is, assets which do not have a joint or co-owner with rights of survivorship, a beneficiary (on the security or account, not in the will) or a transfer on death designee. Assets include real property and personal property (both tangible and intangible). Step Two: Attending the Appointment for Qualification If the decedent died with a will, having provided the information required under Step One, in addition to providing the money for the bond or the bond with surety, bring the following with you to your appointment with the Clerk of the Circuit Court: (1) the original will and self-proving affidavit, (2) certified copy of the death certificate, (3) a Virginia resident who can qualify as the registered agent if the Executor resides outside of Virginia, (4) photo identification, and (5) cash or check to pay fees (for example, state and possibly local probate taxes). Step Three – Taking on the Role of Executor Control: Once you have received the Certificate of Qualification, it is your duty/authority to take control/ possession of the estate assets. Determine what real property and personal property is owned by the estate of the deceased. No Commingling of accounts: Obtain an EIN for the Estate. Establish a checking account in the name of the Estate of the deceased. Investment and Diversification: The Executor has the responsibility to invest and preserve the value of the principal funds of the estate. Be aware of the governing Code of Virginia requirements (§ 64.2-1501), as well as if the “prudent investor rule” (§ 64.2-781) has been waived within the will. Record Keeping: Keep precise and accurate record keeping of all assets and any and all distributions, as well as additional items the Commissioner of Accounts may require. Do not commingle any of the estate assets with your personal assets. Notice to Heirs: Within thirty days after your date of qualification, you are required to provide notice to all the heirs at law and all the beneficiaries under the will, using the form titled, “Notice Regarding Estate,” Form CC-1616. Within the same timeframe, you are required to submit the “Affidavit of Notice Regarding Estate.” This form is submitted to the Clerk of the Circuit Court. Taxes: The Executor is charged with the responsibility of filing any income, inheritance, or estate

tax returns required by state or federal law. Tax questions should be addressed by a certified public accountant who has an understanding of final estate filings. Step Four – Inventory Within four months after your date of qualification you must submit the completed “Inventory for Decedent’s Estate” form (Form CC-1670) to the Commissioner of Accounts (§ 64.2-508 of the Code of Virginia). The assets reported on the Inventory are those assets that comprise the estate of the decedent and their fair market or tax assessed value at the date of the decedent’s death. Step Five – First Accounting Within 16 months after the date of qualification you must submit the completed “Account for Decedent’s Estate” form (Form CC-1680) to the Commissioner of Accounts, showing the estate transactions for the initial twelve-month period. Annual Accountings are filed until the Estate is distributed. Step Six - Debts and Demands Hearing In the event that the Executor does not have a comprehensive understanding of the decedent’s financial encumbrances, it is good practice to submit a request for a Debts and Demands Hearing to the Commissioner of Accounts. Step Seven – Show Cause Against Distribution and Order for Distribution File a motion with the Circuit Court for a Show Cause Against Distribution Hearing, allowing legatees or distributees a forum for contesting the distribution of the Estate. The anticipated Order of Distribution that follows such Hearing, is the blessing from the Court to proceed with said distribution. Such Order affords the Executor a protection against demands of creditors and all other persons as stated in § 64.2-556 of the Code of Virginia. Seeking advice from legal counsel, a certified public accountant, and a financial advisor regarding estate administration prior to taking any action should reduce the fear or trepidation regarding the probate process. As stated earlier, the above steps are not case specific. Though each estate matter is unique, the Code of Virginia truly affords protections for both the intent of the decedent and the good faith efforts of the fiduciary. Katherine S.

Culpeper resident witnesses Duvall make history ➤ The Plains resident and movie star becomes first American honored By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer One of Culpeper’s premiere historians got to witness a special piece of Virginia history last month. Culpeper Times columnist Zann Nelson was a special guest as Scenic Virginia’s and the Thames Landscape Strategy (based in Richmond-upon-Thames, England) honored noted actor and conservationist Robert Duvall as the first U.S. recipient of The Richmonds Medal at a Gala Reception on May 22 in the Rotunda of the Virginia State Capitol. On hand to present the Medal to Mr. Duvall was HRH Prince Richard, The Duke of Gloucester, who serves as patron of the Thames Landscape Strategy. “It was a treat,” Nelson said, who went as a guest of former Di-

rector of the Virginia Department of Historic Resources Kathleen Kilpatrick and was on hand to witness a fellow preservationist receive the historic award. “I’ve worked with the Duvalls in the past,” Nelson said, referencing Robert and his wife Luciana’s work to help relocate the Walmart in Locust Grove away from the Wilderness Battlefield. So it only made sense for Kilpatrick to invite her as Robert Duvall became the first American to receive the award for his conservation work. “It was wonderful to share this important milestone and historic evening with Zann, who is always great, good fun,” Kilpatrick said. “She is a terrific friend, a fine scholar and writer, a great advocate, and someone who has been at the heart of a lot of good work around Virginia and beyond. We were delighted that she could join us.” Duvall was honored for his many years of preserving Virginia’s history, most notably in three specific efforts: Stopping Disney America from building near the

Manassas National Battlefield in the 1990s, his work in stopping the Piedmont Transmission Line in 2007 and the efforts in 2008 to prevent Walmart from building on the eastern edge of the Wilderness Battlefield. “Ours was an easy decision in that Robert Duvall has done both,”

Scenic Virginia Executive Director Leighton Powell said. “He and his wife, Luciana, are consummate conservationists, and they show with their words and deeds how much they care for the land. In each case, Mr. Duvall’s participation brought national attention, ➤ See Duvall, Page 23

➤ VeloConcepts, from Page 22 garnering additional support from across the county and ultimately resulting in victory. In the case of Walmart, the corporation not only agreed to find a new location; it also deeded the original site to the Commonwealth.” The award was created by Lord Alan Watson of Richmond-upon-Thames in England, to strengthen the ties between Scenic Virginia and the Thames Landscape Strategy, two like-minded organizations based in Richmonds on either side of the Atlantic that are dedicated to preservation of the scenic environment. The Richmonds Medal international award recognizes excellence in scenic preservation. Luciana Duvall said that she and her husband love the beauty of Virginia and recognize the importance of preserving it for future generations. “The beauty of a place like this is important, so you have to save it to share with others,” she said. Residents of The Plains, they own a farmhouse that dates back to 1743 that was a safe house in the Civil War. That history and the history that surges through Virginia resonates with the Duvalls. “Virginia is just a very special place,” Luciana said. “It’s very im-

portant to use to support and preserve this beautiful land.” She said the award was a “pleasant surprise” and very thrilling for their family. Kilpatrick said their passion for preserving history is evident when they speak about their efforts. “The connection and commitment are manifest in their own acts of stewardship, in their support of many organizations, and in the powerful testimony they share with others in behalf of the causes of conservation and preservation,” she said. That passion is what led the Duke of Gloucester to bestow the award on Duvall. “HRH eloquently summarized our relationship in a letter that he presented to Scenic Virginia President Lisa Dickinson Mountcastle during The Richmonds Medal ceremony, in which he noted: “Both Scenic Virginia and the Thames Landscape Strategy are quite extraordinary in very many ways; they share real popular appeal and an imaginative sense of what it is about scenic Landscapes that fire people's' imagination. We should rejoice in having such enthusiastic and committed partnerships to guide the process of change along two such special stretches of river,” Powell said.

HISTORY The Discovery Bug ZANN’S PLACE Zann Nelson

The guides at Jamestown would be still be telling us that the original fort lies beneath the James River. A dozen or so years ago a portion of the original fort was discovered lying beneath the statue of Captain John Smith. Incredible findings have been revealed and history is literally being rewritten. I placed my quest for discovery on a dark shelf in the pantry on the back porch and pursued more important aspects of life: making a living, raising children and managing a household. But every now and then I would pull that quest for discovery off the shelf and attempt to infect my children. My son Nathan was not yet steady on his feet when I took him on his first house hunt. His older sister, Jessica, already had the affliction and helped me strap her brother into a backpack. It was the first of many adventures the three of us would share. Metal detecting is another love. The truth is, I am not very good at that either, but it is wonderful fun. The children

I once dreamed of being an archaeologist. This was long before the tales of Indiana Jones; nonetheless I pictured myself discovering lost cities, ancient ruins and secret treasures buried within dense jungles or beneath

shifting sands. My brief foray as a volunteer on a local dig convinced me that this line of work required far more patience than I was willing to commit. The idea of spending weeks, months, sometimes years with a spoon scratching at a tiny square in hopes of finding a microscopic piece of charred dirt was beyond me. More power to those with the talents I do not possess. They have my complete admiration and gratitude. If it were not for the archaeologists, history, as we know it would not be, as we know it!

would put up with hours of digging nails, pop-tops and other miscellaneous scrap for the anticipation of something grand. We had our share of significant finds, but keep in mind that significance is relative. After hours of digging junk, finding an old iron trunk lock was a really big hit. For hours it would be a source of speculation; how old was it, who used it and what were they locking away? The quest would ultimately be returned to the shelf beside the accumulating boxes and bags of “artifacts.” We weren’t sure what many of the items were so we threw nothing away. Sometimes, we would get them out again in hopes of figuring out what we had found. And so it went. However, what once was a hobby became a mission. As the case with many discoveries, it isn’t that they were never known but that they have been misplaced or lost to history due to insufficient records. It may be more accurate to define what I do as rediscovery with the added elements of documentation and publication. Documentation will prevent future loss or misplacement, even if destroyed. Publication serves as another form of

recordation and has the added benefit of reaching those who may hold more information. They may be unaware that they possess missing pieces to a fascinating puzzle. Publication fosters vital communication. Before you can find the answers, you must first acknowledge the questions. Once a set of questions is established the investigator is hooked. Of the many types of addictions available to us these days, this one is a keeper. It is cheap, healthy, productive, and can be implemented by one or many. Recently my oldest granddaughter, Marley, experienced her first house hunting. We explored two houses, both believed to be more than 150 years old; before we were done, she was teaching her mother about recognizing chimney ghosts. Perhaps she will be the next great explorer. Until next week, be well. Zann Nelson is a researcher specializing in historical investigations, public speaker and award -winning freelance writer and columnist.

CMI schools mongers The back to school essay, “What you did this summer” was always a bear to tackle. To me, the hardest part was connecting summer events to a cohesive storyline while paring down the lesser (albeit exciting) things. That perennial writing assignment was mixed bag of excitement to tell a story while simultaneously being overwhelmed with how to tell it. Candidly, it’s kind of like now as I try to relay the three days of Cheesemonger Invitational, “CMI.” Conceivably, three days should be easy to surmise. Cheese. Lots and lots of cheese right? Seriously though, cheese is a way of life for all of the folks at CMI. The event is designed to share knowledge and elevate an understanding of cheese. From makers, affineurs to buyers to distributors to mongers - cheese, in so many facets, was the central to what united us. In interactive lectures and roundtable discussions with some of the world’s best in class operators it became abundantly clear that there’s an endless amount to learn. This may have been one of the few times that I have eagerly looked forward to days of classroom discussions and learnings. Neatest part was as we shared knowledge we realized our individual strengths. Then there was the CMI test itself. Described akin to sommelier test for cheese, the actual CMI contest was held on the third day. Written, aroma, practical and production tests faced each of the 45 CMI competitors. For me, it was a journey years in the making. A journey that shattered fears, eliminated biases and brought me close to a collection of friends that, heretofore I had not known. Longtime column readers may remember my 2015 CMI piece in which I was thinking about participating. If you are counting - that’s three years to gain the courage to try. Understand that locally the bar is set high. Sara Adduci of Feast in Charlottesville is a CMI winner. So to is former Flora (Charlottesville) owner Nadjeeb Chouaf. If they could, why not me I reasoned? Both of them

Nobody wins CMI their first time out and my experience was no different. The test is designed to make you better. Consider that this year’s winner, Eric Schack, Eataly won on his third time out building on the cumulative feedback from judges. To me, what’s unique about CMI is the feedback from top industry peers. Feedback meant to guide your development . Where I own my failures, I may frame the positive comments about my cheese pairing. The lesser marks are skills to work on. After all there are two, (possibly three?) CMI events in 2019 and I want to see all of these amazing cheese people again.

Culpeper man arrested with large supply of heroin A Culpeper man faces drug charges following an incident Monday. On July 9, 2018 at approximately 4:06 pm, the Culpeper Police Department responded to a trespassing complaint at Belle Court Apartments. Upon arrival, units began investigating the complaint and located a subject who had previously been barred from the property at Belle Court Apartments. As a result of this investigation, Richard Lawrence Cannon, 35, Culpeper was taken into custody for trespassing. Officers then furthered their investiCannon gation while on scene and subsequently seized a large quantity of narcotics from Cannon. Officers seized over 20 individual bags of suspected heroin, a large quantity of cocaine, and marijuana. Officers continued to follow up on this investigation, which led them to a local hotel where Cannon was staying. Additional narcotics and a large amount of U.S. currency were located during a search of the hotel room.

As a result of this drug investigation, the Culpeper Police Department placed the following charges against Cannon: misdemeanor trespassing, felony distribution of controlled substance (2 counts), and misdemeanor distribution of marijuana. Cannon is being held without bond at the Culpeper County Jail.

“Our office is committed to the continuing fight against one of our nation’s worst drug epidemics in history with heroin," Culpeper Town Police Chief Chris Jenkins said. "We ask citizens to continue to call in suspicious activity to our office because this is a perfect example of something that started as a trespassing complaint leading to

something more serious.” This is an active and on-going investigation. Anyone with additional information is asked to call Officer John Slaughter at 540727-3430. Callers can also remain anonymous by calling Culpeper Crime Solvers at 540-727-0300. Tips can also be submitted at tips@
