H E A LT H Beating the Holiday Weight Gain Picture a typical holiday party, and what comes to mind? Sugary, frosted cookies; rich, whipped cream-topped drinks; tables covered with enough food to feed an army? A common theme among all holiday traditions and celebrations seems to be food, and often plenty of it. A delicious spread of party food can be pleasurable in the moment, but for many, overindulging throughout the season results in weight gain and regret. Even though the weight gain may be moderate, (a recent study from the New England Journal of Medicine found that the average American actually only gains 1 to 2 pounds between Thanksgiving and the New Year) the issue arises when those extra pounds hang around. Those modest gains can add up over time. “You may be able to avoid weight gain around the holidays simply by being mindful about what you’re eating, why you are eating and being strategic about your choices,” says Teri Travi, RD, a Registered Dietitian and Novant Health UVA Health System diabetes educator. “By making a plan and setting realistic goals, you’ll feel empowered and successful when the New Year rolls around.” So, how do you combat the excess intake and make sure you’re balancing treats with healthy, energizing foods? Travi offers the following tips to curtail increasing weight. 1. Practice moderation and mindfulness. Freshly-baked treats are tempting so be selective and set personal limits. Find the things that you love and aren’t available at other times of the year and allow yourself to enjoy. Fill half of your plate with vegetables first to leave less room for calorie dense foods and eat the vegetables first. By the time you get to the other foods, you will be less hungry. While eating, savor the texture, flavor and

smells. Eat slowly and pay attention to how you are feeling. (It may take 20 minutes before your brain gets the signal that you have had enough). Set limits on portions that are realistic and achievable. 2. Incorporate activity into your day. Hit the pavement solo, or if you’re with family invite them to join and use a walk as a chance to catch up while being active. Schedule active family events instead of sedentary ones – go bowling or hiking or even caroling! Keep up with your usual exercise routine. Getting your body moving after a meal kick starts energy utilization and will help keep you alert. 3. Simplify. With all the shopping, cooking, hosting and busy schedules associated with the holidays, feelings of stress and anxiety are common. An increase in the body’s stress hormone, cortisol, makes our bodies more resistant to insulin and may increase blood sugar and contribute to weight gain. Remember to relax, prioritize and simplify. Decide what is really important – it probably isn’t the food, gifts and activities! Remember, it’s okay to say no and not wear yourself out. 4. Drink smartly. Gatherings often include alcoholic beverages and it comes as no surprise that many people wind up drinking more during the holidays than at other times of year. But with alcohol comes empty calories that can really make a difference in your waistline (a single glass of eggnog can have as much as 400 calories), not to mention your judgement. If you are drinking, consider alternating a glass of water or club soda for every alcoholic beverage you have. Choose calorie free mixers and use lots of ice! You’ll

be more likely to make good decisions about food choices and you will feel more energized the next day. 5. Out of sight, out of mind. A study published by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition determined that people are more likely to eat – even if they aren’t hungry – when there is food in front of them. This is particularly true when the person is distracted by conversation or other entertainment. To help avoid mindless eating, socialize away from the buffet table or gather for a game or puzzle in the living room. Put away leftover treats at home rather than leaving on the counter or send them home with guests. Only make what you know will get eaten at the first sitting. Move tempting foods to the back of the refrigerator. (Many treats can be frozen and eaten at a later time!) 6. Swaps and substitutions. Access to health and fitness information and culinary advances have brought us more healthful alternatives to a variety of foods, making it easy to create more nutritious versions of your favorite comfort foods with more nutrients and lower calories, saturated fat and

cholesterol. Are mashed potatoes a staple at your holiday dinner? Try mashed cauliflower instead or a combination of the two. Do you love to bake? Switch up a recipe or two by using unsweetened applesauce or sunflower oil and/or whole grain flour for part of the white flour as tasty substitutions. Do you crave a big bowl of pasta after a long day of party prepping? Trade carbohydrateheavy noodles for spaghetti squash or spiralized zucchini. Travi suggests being realistic in setting your holiday eating strategy to avoid weight gain. Aim for maintenance rather than weight loss and don’t dwell on what has already happened. Look ahead and be mindful. Avoid skipping meals to “save up” for an event – it almost always results in excess intake at the next meal. While following all of these tips may not be possible, adopting a few will keep your weight goals in check and give you a healthier start to the New Year!

COMMUNITY NEWS

Northam awards grant to Culpeper County Governor Ralph Northam announced that $5.9 million in grants administered by the Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) have been awarded to support the Commonwealth’s criminal justice system. The grants were approved by the Criminal Justice Services Board (CJSB) at its meeting in Richmond on Dec. 6. These grant funds are allocated to Virginia through the federal Violence Against Women Act and the Byrne Justice Assistance Grant Program. The awards include over $4.5 million to bolster the response to crimes of violence against women and services for survivors, and $1.4 million to provide equipment, technology, and training for law enforcement agencies throughout the Commonwealth. Included in the awards is a grant to expand the Court Appointed Special Advocate Program (CASA) to the 16th Judicial District in Culpeper County, an area currently without CASA services. CASA is a child advocacy organization that seeks to provide trained volunteers to speak for abused and neglected children who are the subjects of juvenile court proceedings. “These grants are just one example of the many great ways DCJS and the Board have worked to expand the availability of these critical services in Virginia,” said Secretary of Public Safety and Homeland Security Brian Moran. “I know that the availability of these programs and services for crime victims, as well as funding for law enforcement, will have a tremendous impact on communities across the Commonwealth.” “We are delighted that the children of Culpeper County will have the support of CASA volunteers when their cases are before the court,” said Culpeper Human Services Director Lisa Peacock. “Already an extremely

CULPEPER YOUTH SPOTLIGHT

NLJC looking for cotillion director

Abby Stern (Editor's note: This is weekly series highlighting members of Culpeper's Youth Council. To join Culpeper Youth, go to www.culpeperyouth.org to apply.) Is student loan debt a problem in this country? Student loan debt is a problem. College tuition is extremely high and is only continuing to rise. Not only is the cost of getting a degree rising, the need for a degree in a workplace is increasing as well. This needs to change. One of the main reasons students choose to either attend or not attend college is money. Student loans are holding people back from reaching their full potential. Educations is supposed to broaden your abilities but the only this it does is hold people back because of the excessive debt. The amount of financial aid granted to each student is normally dependent on how much each of their parents earn annually. The problem with this is a students financial stability is not only determined by how much their parents make. Changed need to be made. Student debt causes stress and only holds people back.

The National League of Junior Cotillions (NLJC), a program of etiquette, character education and social dance training for middle school students, has announced plans to reestablish its national program in Culpeper County. Says Charles Winters, President of the National League of Junior Cotillions, “We will beselecting a director for a local chapter who will receive complete training and an exclusive territory for expansion.” The organization currently has directors operating hundreds of chapters in 30 states. “This program is making a positive impact on students across the nation and we are delighted to know that more young people in this area will have the opportunity for this vital training," Winters said. The purpose of the NLJC program is to give students instruction and practice in the courtesies that make life more pleasant for them and those around them. Students actively learn courtesies through a creative method employing role playing, skits, and games. Standard ballroom and line dancing is taught using nationally approved top 40 music. The program, with headquarters in Charlotte, North Carolina, was established in 1979 and has licensed local cotillions nationwide. Applications or nominations for cotillion director are currently being received.

LOCAL NEWS 'Making of a Soldier:' A look inside Bill Chases's past Bill Chase is a character. Anyone who has attended a Culpeper County Board of Supervisors meeting in the last 36 years can attest to his often witty, self-deprecating humor. That humor shines through in his new book, “The Making of a Soldier,” published by Politics and Prose Bookstore in Washington, D.C. The more than 500 page memoir takes readers through Bill’s early life growing up in Clearfield, Pa., the son of a country lawyer and his struggles to make it through school and into the military. Much of the first half of the

book, which focuses on his quests acquire a car, alcohol and good times, is read with disbelief that he even survived many of his escapades. 1

12/6/18

The laughs come fast and steady in “Making of a Soldier,” starting in the first chapter as Bill describes his childhood - one in which he pretended to be a soldier, even making hand grenades out of a mud and corn. It was one of those “grenades” that broke out the front window of the door to his home, which led to a swift spanking from his father. From there, he and his friends moved to playing on the train tracks that led through Clearfield - and it’s with an almost matterof-fact tone that Bill explains one of his friends was cut in half by a train and covered with newspapers before the authorities came. His mother soon forbade him from playing on the track with a phrase he became familiar with throughout his life, “The good Lord must be looking out for you and saving you for a purpose.”

School was not that purpose, as Bill often says with a chuckle. His school tales in “Making of a Soldier” are varied and are antics that would likely lead to charges and jail time today. In junior high, he tells one tale of going to the junior high prom and sneaking in a pocketful of 10 firecrackers. Fireworks were illegal in Pennsylvania, so Bill still isn’t sure where he got them from. He and a group of friends threw a lit firecracker into an air vent down onto the dance floor, thinking that they would never be caught. As is the case with many of Bill’s stories - he was caught. He had hid several firecrackers in the cuff of his trousers, thinking that if teachers searched him they wouldn’t be smart enough to ➤ See Dough, Page 5

He received detention hall for the rest of the year but was still eligible for basketball and football and was still allowed to practice for basketball. One of my favorite stories in the book revolves around Bill’s quest to get a car and his travels around Clearfield with his “driving crew.” In the summer of 1954, most of his school friends were away or busy and he was working in the coal mine at the time - a job his father lined up so Bill would learn it was a job he didn’t want to pursue after high school. The lack of his friends during that summer led him to two of his favorite pastimes, traveling to Erie, Pa. on the weekends or hanging out with the strange men he had gotten to know in Clearfield. He assembled a motley crew four - two brothers in their 60s who were retired coal miners who walked bent over, one with just

one eye. Another man, “Moose,” was injured in the strip mines when a steam shovel rolled over his leg. He more or less lost his mind due to the pain and couldn’t speak - instead grunting out responses. The other rider was “Red” - a 70ish year-old man who wore Western clothes around town who slept in his 1941 Lincoln. Bill would ride around town with his “crew,” but as he said he never laughed at his friends, just with them. Bill’s affinity for characters defines this book. He introduces to many throughout his travels from Clearfield to Sullivan’s Preparatory School to West Point to Christmas Island to Vietnam. The book dedicates a little more than 100 pages to the conflict in Vietnam, but it’s the most chilling and obviously the hardest for Bill to write. It was after his tours in Vietnam, that Bill decided he wanted to write about his experiences. “I thought well when I go back to Vietnam, I knew I was going back, I thought I’d write this stuff down and write some book full of humor,” Bill said. When he returned from Vietnam the second time he started to write the book, but he couldn’t

find the humor. He did keep all the notes and revisited after his wife died and an old friend edited. “I haven’t really read it since it’s been together, so I’m not sure what she used and what she didn’t,” Bill said. “Some of it I’m not proud of.” It was hard for him to revisit some of the experiences, but because of a brain injury he suffered in the 1980s those memories are more vivid. “It was very hard, with this brain damage I can remember clear as a bell what went on in the 50s, 60s and 70s but after this brain injury I have trouble remembering the day of the week,” Bill said. The hardest part of the book was the death of Major Thao, who took a bullet for Chase, dying in his arms. It’s a story Chase has told hundreds of times, but it doesn’t get easier. “We were involved in a firefight and we were bringing in Vietnamese artillery to support us,” Chase said. “Our American advisor called ahead and said our forward observed was Viet Cong and he was adjusting the artillery on us. I went and told Thao and we bought a helicopter to take this guy out. They had him tied and

were leading him with his hands behind him. They thought they had disarmed it. As he was being led to the plane there was confusion and all of a sudden broke free. He tore open his raincoat and he had a shoulder holster and a .45. So he pulled it out and he came running toward me. I backed up, I should have shot him but I didn’t. I fell over a log and Thao couldn’t get his own .45 out quick enough. So he dove in between us and took the round right in the head.” The Vietnam stories continue, concluding with Bill’s only visit to the Vietnam Wall. It’s a moving ending to a book that paints a picture of a man that was born to be a soldier. It’s only fitting he ends on Gen. Douglas MacArthur’s quote, “Old soldiers never die, they just fade away.” Thankfully, Bill shared his stories before fading away and as he notes, there’s another 40 years he doesn’t cover - the time he’s spent in Culpeper as a farmer and supervisor. It’s a book that focuses on good times, bad times and wild stories. One thing it doesn’t lack is character.

Garrett lights up Reva during Christmas season By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer For years Nancy Garrett has been a light in the community, now she’s lighting it up. Driving down Reva Road, it’s hard to miss Garrett’s Christmas decorations at 14325 Reva Road they light up the night sky like a beacon. “One little boy came with his dad and yelled out ‘Papa, Papa, Disneyland,” Garrett said with a laugh. It’s that joy that she loves to instill with her giant light display - consisting of more than 60 inflatable characters and one thousand lights. Christmas hasn’t always been the most joyous time in her life when she was five going on six, her mother passed away from pneumonia, leaving behind a husband and four young children. Nancy became not only the big sister but also the mother for her sisters and brother. Shortly after her mother passed, a neighbor brought over a wreath and hung it on their door signifying loss. To this day, Garrett still doesn’t hang a wreath on her door or have a

Christmas tree - but instead she has one of the largest light displays in the county. She laughs as she points out she puts them all up herself, and this year it grew with 12 more inflatables. “No more, no more,” she says laughing, saying that it takes almost two weeks to set everything up. Her display came from grief and wanting to honor her youngest sister Bonnie, who passed away four years ago at age 64. Nancy spoke to her on the phone one night and then couldn’t reach her the next two days. Living across the country, her sister lived in Seattle, Nancy called her niece and said something was wrong. The sheriff's department found her dead in her apartment and Nancy decided she wanted to honor her with the largest display she could think of. Then, last year, her other sister’s husband committed suicide and she decided to go bigger to help honor him. “My baby sister who was very close to me was found dead in her house four years ago,” Garrett said. “I never could handle it, so I started doing this in memory of my baby

Her favorites are the 15-foot Toy Soldier, the Teddy Bear that gives hugs, the 16-foot Frosty the Snowman and Mickey Mouse at the piano, with Minnie Mouse adoringly looking down on her beau.

On weekends she stands out with a plate of cookies for the kids and a box of toys - each child that visits gets a special present to take home with them. “The people who have been here, it’s hard for me to tell you what they say, ‘amazing, unbelievable,’” Garrett said. “One woman was here the other night and she said she’s never seen anything like this.”

Sheriff's Peppermint Parade brings Christmas spirit to Culpeper Dec. 22 By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer It’s a story that could almost be a script for a Hallmark Christmas movie. Just weeks before Christmas, the Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office decided they were going to put on a Christmas parade - something many in the community have been requesting for many years. Within days, they had a venue, participation and excitement to go along with it. Deputy Mike Jenkins, project manager for the CCSO, was just wrapping up their annual Deadwood Haunted Trail that helped raise funds for the Santa Cop Christmas program when he thought - what else can we do? “We finished our money from our Halloween event and we started to shopping process for the Christmas program, we said what can we do to improve?” Mike Jenkins said. “The initial thought was that people have had this discussion for years, that we need a Christmas parade, but no one can seem to get the momentum started. We said can we take this task on?” They could and they did. The initial response was heartwarming for Jenkins and his brother Sheriff Scott Jenkins, who gave his brother carte blanche to make it happen as long as it was called a Christmas parade and it was extremely festive. Set for Dec. 22 at 5 p.m. at Culpeper County High School, the parade was originally scheduled to be held downtown but time constraints became an issue. Instead, the Culpeper County Public School system happily offered the use of its Culpeper campus for a safe, organized venue. The excitement that Mike Jenkins received from the community was almost unanimous. “We started contacting others around the area that have done parades for assistance and everyone immediately got excited on this conversation,” Jenkins said. “The response repeatedly has been ‘this is a wonderful idea.’”

Jenkins admits he had some anxiety about trying to put the parade together too quickly, but everyone’s enthusiasm led the CCSO to move forward. “Everyone was so excited, we didn’t want to lose that momentum,” Jenkins said. Jenkins cited Chris Hively, Town of Culpeper manager, and the Brandy Station Volunteer Fire Department as huge advocates, helping them set up the parade. The BSVFD stopped having their annual summer parade two years ago, but with their expertise from previous years, they believed the CCSO could make the event happen in short order. Salem Volunteer Fire Department offered their equipment to help populate the parade, but the CCSO hasn’t had a lack of participants. “We wanted to make sure we had a good size parade,” Jenkins said. “We’re in the process of contacting all the volunteer fire departments now and I’d love to have them all participate.” His wife was the one who said it felt like a Hallmark movie. “It really set the tone for what we’re trying to do,” Jenkins said. “It was day three of the process, my wife Faith and I sat down and said this is like a real-life Hallmark movie we are making happen.” They’ve been provided a sleigh and even though it’s just three days before Christmas, they were able to convince Santa to come and participated. “The community saw there was a need, there was a void that hadn’t been filled for years and it just took someone presenting it to make everyone participate,” Jenkins said. Vendors are expected, with hot chocolate and sweets being the focus for the first year, but Jenkins again thinks it could grow. By hosting it at the high school this year, Jenkins is hopeful parking won’t be an issue. “It provides a safe, effective location because we don’t have traffic to impede and it’s a well-light campus,” Jenkins said. “It ➤ See Parade, Page 9

HISTORY More Christmas Traditions….The tree, decorations and presents ZANN’S PLACE

The role of the evergreen tree, in its natural form or a facsimile, as a focal point in the celebration of Christmas was the brainchild of the Germans, even before they were known as Germans. Snippets of early records indicate such activity as early as the mid -1700s in German settlements in Pennsylvania. However, without mass communication, pockets of activity did not translate into the development of widespread traditions. The idea of the Christmas tree languished during the early 19th Century, but the popular ruling family of England was about to change the world. In the 1840s, Prince Albert, husband of Queen Victoria introduced

Chamber hosts annual legislative breakfast The Culpeper Chamber of Commerce hosted its annual Legistlative Breakfast Wednesday morning at Germanna Community College's Daniel Technology Center. Del. Michael Webert (R-18th District, Del. Nick Freitas (R-30th District), Sen. Bryce Reeves (R-17th District) and Sen. Emmett Hanger (R-24th District) listened to community and business leaders discuss needs that they face in their fields.

The most pressing need came as Carl Stafford, Senior Extenstion Agent for the Virginia Cooperative Extension, talked about the hard summer the agriculture community faced. The wet conditions led to low yield and low quality of many crops including wheat and soy beans. He stressed the importance of the legislators helping with agritourism and how farmers can fill in the gaps with disaster relief.

➤ Parade, from Page 7

We’re happy to support their efforts.” Culpeper County School Board Stevensburg representative Marshall Keene, also a CCSO employee, said it was a natural fit. “It’s pretty obvious with the relationship between the schools and the Sheriff’s office, it’s not just having the deputies there, it’s more of a partnership,” Keene said. “We work really well together. There was no question when we were looking for a place in the county, the schools were an option and Dr. Brads and his staff were 100 percent on board with it.” He was excited to offer something that has - to his knowledge

gives a good view, if you think about it. With that route, people can even sit in their car and take it in if it’s too cold. I really feel like it’s a good location.” CCPS Superintdent Dr. Tony Brads was excited to offer the school and his only request was to include the district’s new activities bus and the Eastern View football and field hockey teams and Culpeper County High School football team that went to states. “It’s starts with our partnership with the sheriff’s office,” Brads said. “They came to us to offer something that we haven’t had here before.

- never been done in Culpeper before. “For me, I’ve asked people who have lived here their whole life if we’ve had a Christmas parade and no one can give me an answer,” Keene said. “Just the idea of bringing the whole community together, it’s the season to be merry, but we also have to remember it’s the time of year to celebrate the birth of Christ.” Other attractions will include Culpeper resident Lisa Freiburg and her three daughters who recently were named Miss Christmas for the Eastern Virginia region. Fireworks will also be provided at the end of the parade.

“It was well into the process, we had reached out to Warrenton to find out how they do theirs and we found out they do a fireworks display at the end of theirs and it's so appreciated,” Jenkins said. “We found out we had an individual who was willing to donate and we found out they could help fund that process.” Jenkins said he’s hoping they have a large crowd for the first year. “Honestly my first concern was will we have participation, will we have an audience?” Jenkins said. “Quickly that grew to the schools can accomodate a large football crowd, so if we can draw in that number, I’d be thrilled.”

HOME & GARDEN The holiday table OUTDOOR OUTLOOK

I cannot remember a single present I received as a child but I will never forget the time I spent dragging a 16' cedar tree though the woods and up a quarter mile long driveway with my mom just to realize it was too big to fit in the house. I still remember dad laughing at us and having to basically cut the tree in half to fit it in the living room. I remember sitting at the dining room table taking grasses and cuttings and turning them into decorations as a family. I remember going out into the woods or the fields and gathering everything from decorations we put on the dinner table to the garland we would wrap the banister with. I will never forget the time we spent wandering through the woods and fields looking for the perfect tree to

Donald Sherbeyn

cut down and make our Christmas tree. Growing up with mom managing farms there was always something to do outside and we were able to make some memories that will stay with me forever. Since not everyone gets to grow up on 300 acres I thought it would be cool to share some ideas on how others could create their own memories and decorations using what might be available to them. Most of our landscapes offer plenty of opportunity to gather different things and create a nice decorations for the home, so if you're reading this then grab your kids, your loved one or go grab your mom (bet she will come play with you no matter how old you are)and make a memory. Here are some plantings we have locally that could be used to create a great centerpiece for your holiday table. How you put them together is up to you so be creative and use what you have, maybe even ...borrow some from the neighbor. Just kidding

®

make sure you ask permission before you go cutting down your neighbors landscape I don't want to get yelled at by anyone. For berries and foliage Holly are great or if you want a berry without the foliage winterberry are amazing. The red berry set along a strong bare branch of the winterberry or nestled amongst the holly leafs both bring interest. Heavenly bamboo, Cotoneaster, coralberry and beautyberry all locally found. The beautyberry has a purple berry so if you find this one you are doing great. Ornamental grasses can be used in the arrangement. I personally like to use Miscanthus because if reminds me of the old field grasses I grew up with. This time of year the grass has already seeded and the stalks have browned. Take a tuft from the top 1' of the grass, it will present you with a great fill or frame depending on how you decide to use it. Fern.. surely he did not say fern.. It's winter time. Yup I said it,

Christmas fern is beautiful and still just as beautiful this time of year as it would be in spring, maybe even more so. Camellia has a fantastic heavy green leaf and some of them will even be blooming, pair this with some twigs from a red twig dogwood and maybe some Helleborus and a few branches of Mahonia, Lace in a few blades from a variegated liriope and you're on your way to something pretty cool. Honestly it does not matter what you use so long as you put a bit of creativity with it you could use just about anything and get a beautiful finished project. Regardless of what you make, make it with a friend or loved one and you will remember the day long after we forget what was found under the tree this year. Phrase for the day: Build today to remember tomorrow. Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas everyone.

is a standout as the Civil War veteran grandfather who insists upon doing his civic duty and fighting back against the criminals, no matter the cost. The film, which was Oscar nominated for Best Writing, Original Story by Lucien Hubbard, was inspired by a real life incident of a gang shooting in Harlem in which several children were shot and police were unable to convince witnesses to talk in the case. Warner Bros. rushed the film into theatres while agreeing to turn over all proceeds from the first two screenings of “Star Witness” to the families of five children injured by gang bullets. 35mm film print produced by the Library of Congress Film Preservation lab in 2013. 68 min. “Those Who Dance” (Warner Bros.,1930)

Much studied, imitated, even parodied, but never outdone, Ingmar Bergman’s stunning allegory of man’s search for meaning, “The Seventh Seal” (“Det sjunde inseglet”), was one of the benchmark foreign imports of America’s 1950s art-house heyday, pushing cinema’s boundaries and ushering in a new era of movie going. “The Seventh Seal” won the Special Jury Prize at the 1957 Cannes Film Festival. In Swedish with English subtitles. 35mm film print on loan from Janus Films. 96 min. Free, at the Library of Congress Packard Campus Theater located at 19053 Mt. Pony Rd. in Culpeper, VA.

VIEWS Tips to have a healthy holidy season HEALTH AND WELLNESS

It’s hard to believe that it is already the holiday season and that 2019 is right around the corner. What a delightful, busy and, for many, complicated time of the year! Once Thanksgiving arrives, the events, parties and gatherings begin. There is so much fun to be had and even more eating to be done. It seems like food is everywhere…candy, fudge, cakes, dips, finger foods, casseroles and more. For me, it becomes almost impossible to get through a day without indulging in food I can easily pass up any other time of the year. I recently asked Jena Savadsky Griffith, RDN, nutritionist at Powell Wellness Center, for suggestions about how to eat my way through the season without shame and the addition of a whole lot of extra weight. Jena reminded me of several good tips that I’ve heard before:

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Thank you from Team Jordan for success of annual fundraiser

The members of Team Jordan would like to thank everyone who contributed to our recent fundraiser on Nov. 28, 2018. Team Jordan, in collaboration with Rappahannock Rapidan Community Services, is a suicide prevention coalition committed to providing resources to those most at risk and also to those in need of immediate help. Team Jordan and RRCS provides additional assistance to survivors with individual or group support. Because of the generosity of many

• Make a tasty, healthy dish to share at potlucks. • Don’t skip meals in order to save calories or space for a big eating event. • Use small plates and start with veggies when offered lots of food choices at a buffet or party. • Be mindful of medical conditions or allergies and eat accordingly; don’t be tempted to eat things that could compromise your health. But my real question to Jena was, “How do I make relatively healthy choices without feeling like I’m depriving myself of all the good food that is surrounding me?”. Jena suggested the following: • Eat some light, healthy snacks before going to a party or event. You’ll make better choices if you aren’t starving when you arrive. • Celebrate with foods that are naturally sweet and in season like pumpkin, squash, and cranberries which are readily available and can satisfy your craving for sweets. Enjoy the flavors of butternut squash or sweet potatoes or make a creative dessert like figs stuffed with nuts. • Eat mindfully. Choose your

real indulgences consciously (for me that will be pecan pie!). Enjoy every bite and eat it slowly. When we eat mindfully, we naturally eat less and feel more satisfied. • Don’t stand near food tables at a party. Stand far enough away that you need to think before you refill your plate with all the tempting goodies. • Be nourished by the people you are with. Instead of focusing on the food, spend time reconnecting with old friends, getting to know someone new or go out of your way to include others in a conversation. Nourishment comes in many forms and sharing time with friends and family is a most meaningful way to nourish yourself. I’ll be keeping Jena’s suggestions in mind over the next several weeks and hope you might find them helpful as well. From all of us at Culpeper Wellness Foundation, we wish you good health and much happiness during this holiday season..

local businesses and individuals, this latest fundraising effort generated in excess of $33,000 that will be used to further our outreach efforts and educate our community about reducing the risk of suicide. Your donations of time, monetary gifts, purchase of raffle tickets, and other contributions mean Team Jordan and RRCS can teach more people how to better recognize someone at risk, to learn where to get help, and to offer the vital support surviving loved ones and friends need. Team Jordan also supports local youth groups working to strengthen children who are vulnerable to pressure, building their confidence and self-worth.

The community support and attendance of this year’s fundraiser was bigger than ever. We thank you and commend you for caring. There is nothing greater that one can do than to contribute to a community’s well-being, and your very generous help will certainly be felt by those who need it, when they need it most. And if you were not able to join us on Nov. 28, there’s always next year -or you can contribute anytime by sending your donation to Team Jordan, PO Box 773, Culpeper, VA 22701.

The holiday countdown is on and the season of giving is taking center stage. The lists are coming out and everyone’s creative “juices” are flowing – maybe with a little help from a glass or two of wine. Whether you’re seeking something for that special someone in your life, a hostess gift or a Secret Santa under $20, the gift of wine is a beautiful thing. There are plenty of options to please all palates, you never have to stress about whether it’s the right size, maybe the right color, but overall, there’s a very good chance it will be well received. Here are few ideas to get you started. Hostess gifts are always appreciated and fun to put together. Theme it out and make it an Italian Adventure. Start with a bag of Taralli Con Semi Di Finocchio (traditional fennel crackers from Puglia) these addictive “biscuit” are made with whole wheat flour, white wine, EVOO, salt and fennel seeds. Add a stick of Creminelli Sopressata, nitrate and antibiotic free uncured Italian Salami, seasoned with garlic, spices and wine. Both are spectacular served with red wine, especially a Tuscan blend like Avignonesi Cantaloro, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese. Perfection. Not sure about your Secret Santa person? A versatile dry German Riesling will pleasantly surprise someone with wine knowledge or none at all. You can find a great bottle under $20 that will leave them hoping you get their name again next year. Beyond Riesling, a bottle of sparkling wine is always a sure bet. It gives your recipient a great excuse to make Sunday brunch and maybe even score you an invitation. Suppose you want to splurge on a super special person, a bottle of Vintage Port is at the top of the list. Vintage Port in particular is very limited

because it isn’t just automatically produced every year. In the world of Port, a vintage is declared through a formal process with approval from the Porto Wine Institute. The producer must submit a sample of the wine for evaluation by the Institute and the approval is given only if an expert panel, tasting blind, agrees that the port is superlative. It is up to each individual producer or house to decide if they want to request a review and declare a vintage year. Once declared, the wine is aged for two years in barrel and bottled unfiltered. Once in bottle, it requires quite a bit of bottle aging, as much as 20 years, to achieve its full potential. Vintage Port represents a mere 2% of total production. In fact, 2016 was just declared this year, the first since 2011. Add a box of dark chocolates and this is a truly a magical gift. Happy Holidays!
