Salute to our Veterans Cruisin for Heroes supports Fisher House Foundation By Lou Realmuto

SPECIAL TO THE CULPEPER TIMES

Several area patriots who make up the group called Cruisin For Heroes have collaborated with Mike and Melissa Martin, owners of Bruster’s here in Culpeper, to provide a monthly Cruise-In. Culpeper local Vietnam veteran Lou Realmuto and Chuck Shotwell of Stafford lead the small group of eight members. Their mission is to bring a family friendly Vehicle Display to an event that will raise awareness and funding for the Fisher House Foundation as well as other charities/local community service groups supporting military organizations, veterans and first responders throughout Virginia while encouraging interest in preserving the great classic automobile hobby for future generations. They have an exclusive list of approximately 70 volunteers/supporters who share a love of country, have a passion for classic cars and enjoy talking to people about their special ride

while supporting charitable causes. Cruisin For Heroes has been able to provide a wide assortment of specialty vehicles from antiques to classics to race cars for their Special Vehicle Displays and various other events for the past nine years. Their display has been a major attraction for many years at AirFest held at the Culpeper Regional Airport. They also organize an annual Toys4Tots run each December to the Marine Corp Museum, assist charities like Paws4Vets and will be providing a few vehicles at this year’s 23rd Annual Scholarship Monte Carlo Night on April, 22 at the Joseph R. Daniel Technology Center for guest photo ops. The Fisher House program is a unique private-public partnership supporting America's military in their time of need. It recognizes the special sacrifices of our men and women in uniform and the hardships of military service by meeting a humanitarian need beyond that normally provided by the Departments of Defense and

Veterans Affairs. The Fisher House Foundation builds and donates "comfort homes," on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers. These homes enable family members to be close to a loved one at the most stressful time - during the hospitalization of a member of our military and no family pays to stay at any Fisher House. Our local Bruster’s/Nathan’s on Roger’s Road will again be the site for the monthly fundraiser Cruise-In from 4-8 p.m. on the fourth Saturday of each month from April through September. There will be a DJ playing oldies and a Manager’s Choice Trophy will be presented each month. In addition to any donations col-

lected at the Cruise-In, a portion of the sales from the night’s event will be donation by Mike and Melissa to the Fisher House Foundation. This is a family friendly event and all are welcome. Cruisin For Heroes can add a unique Vehicle Display to promote a special event/business, to help attract additional spectators/customers to a grand opening, special sale, holiday event/parade, or any special community activity. A few other local sponsors of Cruisin For Heroes include Chrysler of Culpeper, Ed’s Awards & Engraving, Braggs Corner Industrial Centre and Pixley Automotive. For more information go to www.cruisinforheroes.com.

During World War II in the Pacific Theater, the Bataan Death March began as American and Filipino prisoners were forced on a six-day march from an airfield on Bataan to a camp near Cabanatuan. Some 76,000 Allied POWs including 12,000 Americans were forced to walk 60 miles under a blazing sun without food or water to the POW camp, resulting in over 5,000 American deaths.

Germanna selects Gullickson as sixth president

Announced Monday, April 10, Dr. Janet Gullickson will take the helm as Germanna Community College’s new president. Gullickson’s hiring caps off a process that began with a national search, which attracted more than 100 candidates, and finished last month with open-to-the-community visits of three finalists to the college. “Janet brings outstanding qualifications to this presidency,” said Dr. Glenn DuBois, the chancellor of Virginia’s Community Colleges. “She’s a dynamic community college educator with an impressive resume of significant leadership positions. I’m excited to bring her aboard and confident she’ll do a great job at Germanna.” Gullickson has presided over two community colleges, including her current position as the president of Spokane Falls Community College, a position she has held since Gullickson 2012. Prior to that, she served two years as the chief academic officer for the second largest district of the Community Colleges of Spokane. Gullickson served as the president of Front Range Community College in Westminster, CO between 2004 and 2005. She was also the interim president and provost in Minnesota of what is now called the Northeast Higher Education District, which includes Ely, Eveleth and Virginia. She holds a doctorate in education from the University of Minnesota, a master’s degree from South Dakota State University and a bachelor’s degree from the University of South Dakota. “This wasn’t an easy choice and that’s a compliment to the process and the finalists it produced,” said William E. Thomas, of Culpeper, the chair of the Germanna Community

College local board. “The community really engaged with this process and they felt a strong connection to Dr. Gullickson. She really shares their priorities, and seems to understand the challenges we face in a fastgrowing region. During our interview Janet indicated that she very much wanted to be the next president of Germanna, but only if she was a good fit. "The responses from college employees, as well as many stakeholders was that they saw her as a great fit. We look forward to working with her when she arrives this summer.” Gullickson will succeed Dr. David Sam, who has served as Germanna’s president for nearly a decade. Sam announced last summer that he would retire at the end of the current academic year.

WEATHER WARDROBE

Warm or cold? That is the kind of spring it has been and that makes it a bit hard to plan what to wear. Some days it has started in the low 40s and ended up in the 70s. A couple of weeks ago as I came out of Target, I saw a young lady who had just such a dilemma sitting on one of those large red balls waiting for the bus. To cover her bases, Chelsea Cruz was wearing shorts and a fur lined parka. It was still pretty chilly so I guess she had planned well. ➤ Check out Rich’s blog at facesofculpeperva.blogspot.com and Faces of Culpeper on Facebook

On Monday, the Virginia Department of Transportation opened the Route 29 northbound access ramp to Route 666 (Braggs Corner Road/ Greens Corner Road) as construction continues on the Route 29-666 interchange project near Eastern View High School. The temporary access road for Route 29 northbound traffic via Poor Farm Road will be closed and the temporary signal at Poor Farm Road and Cyclone Way will be placed in flash mode and eventually removed. Motorists should use caution in the area while traffic adjusts to the new traffic pattern. Route 29 southbound traffic will continue using the temporary loop ramp while crews construct the permanent access ramp. The $35.3 million Route 29/666 project involves reconstructing the existing intersection as a grade-separated interchange for improved safety and mobility. Work began in May 2015 and is being performed by contractor Chemung Contracting Corp. of Mitchells. The project’s fixed completion date is Aug. 18.

Culpeper Times • April 13-19, 2017

The proposed 2017-2018 Annual Fiscal Plan for the County of Culpeper approaches $165 million. Let’s take a snapshot look at the top five pieces of the county money pie and where most of your tax dollars are going. Seventy-four percent of the total budget goes in three areas: schools, human services and public safety.

about the proposed Culpeper County Budget

3

. Keeping the community safe is a top priority but it doesn’t grab the most money. Public safety dollars in the amount of $11,118,983 make up 6.75 percent giving it a third place ranking. That money is going for court security (bailiff’s), the sheriff’s office, the jail and outside jail services. $950,000 is proposed for outside jail services. $750,000 will add 18 new vehicles but giving the sheriff $255,000 will allow him to purchase them over time. He’d also like to add an SRO (School Resource Officer) which would allow for one at each school campus.

4. Filling the fourth spot in our top five

are what is known in the county budget as ‘enterprise funds’ consisting of the airport, landfill and water and sewer. Comprising 6.24 percent of the budget at $10,279,662. The airport is estimated to bring in more than $4M in revenue for FY18 so it is a selffunding operation but the county would like to acquire more land surrounding the airport and do some paving improvements around the hangars. When it comes to providing water, monies can be recovered from those who use it. Continuing construction of a public water supply system near the closed landfill will provide an alternate water supply to residents at risk for groundwater contamination.

5

. Taking fifth place is monies toward capital improvement projects. Accounting for 1.7 percent of the budget at $2,821,740 the proposed budget includes a ‘to do’ list of items. As an example, $194,000 is included for LED side markers to all four county emergency communication towers. This will result in a long term savings on maintenance on the towers. Funding in the amount of $243,000 is included for the first of two ambulances needed by the Emergency Services Department. Two of the older ambulances are in need of replacement due to their age and unreliability.

1. Typical of most county budgets, the biggest

piece of the pie and coming in at first place is the public school system. Education is vitally important and the public school system has more than 7,800 students. It comprises 60 percent of the total budget and accounts for $98,620,276. Keep in mind you’ve got salaries for some 180 employees and capital improvements to existing buildings and debt service. Salary increases are proposed this year. Career and Technical classes offer students a variety of choices after high school.

2

. Taking second place in our top five ranking is human services which accounts for 7 percent of the budget at $12,406,260. In addition to the operations of the Social Services Department, funding also accounts for the operations of the Day Care Program, Cosmetology Program, Head Start and Early Head Start. State and federal monies do play a part in this area with the county providing matching funds.

Public hearing will allow citizens to comment on proposed FY18 budget By Anita Sherman

CULPEPER TIMES STAFF WRITER

Dealing with numbers, lots of numbers can be daunting particularly when you attempt to sift through pages and pages of a county budget. This year’s proposed FY county budget comes in at $164,618,494. It consists of estimates and requests from all the departments that have been fine tuned and discussed for the past weeks. A public hearing, held at 7 p.m. April 18, will allow citizens to question and comment on the proposed operating and capital budgets. One initiative that did not receive state funding (as was initially thought) is pre-trial services and currently the proposed budget contains a little more than $200,000 to start that program. Proponents argue that jail space would be gained as offenders could be home monitored. This would not be for violent offenders. Additional attorneys/staff would need to be hired to accommodate the added workload. The county pays several hundred dollars per day for each inmate so,

over time, perhaps dollars could be saved if the county adopted a pretrial program. The proposed budget contains a request for six new full time positions and one new part time position. Currently requests include a grant writer/special projects manager, a new deputy commonwealth’s attorney, an additional School Resource Officer, reinstatement of a position in the animal control office, fire and rescue requests an administrative assistant to handle billing services allowing volunteers to focus on running calls, and a maintenance technician for parks and recreation. The finance department has requested a part time position for additional department support. Due to the recent general reassessment the total value of real property, excluding additional assessments due to new construction or improvements to property, increased from last year’s total assessed value by 8.2 percent. The County of Culpeper proposes to adopt a tax rate of $.61 per $100 of assessed value for General Fund tax rate and $.06 per $100 assessed value for fire and rescue tax rate.

The men of Mitchell bring ‘The Last Supper’ to life By Anita Sherman

CULPEPER TIMES STAFF WRITER

Started in 1994 by Rev. Charles Spreight, Mitchell’s Presbyterian Church has carried on a tradition that continues to garner attention and admiration. For the sixth time, they will present a dramatization of The Last Supper based on a play by Ernest Emurian. “We all to some degree have let Jesus down,” said Rev. John Grotz describing the program that includes each player (disciple) asking the question, “Lord, is it I?” When told by Jesus that one would betray him they did not point fingers but became sorrowful and immediately looked inward. We know that ultimately Judas is the betrayer but each of his faithful followers questions their loyalty and commitment. Visually, the Italian frescoes at the church provide the perfect background. Their costuming and the table settings mirror Leonardo Da Vinci’s famous painting of the same theme. Colors are vibrant and rich, characterizations are practiced and soulful and the

The Living Last Supper Mitchell’s Presbyterian Church Thursday, April 13 7 p.m. 540-825-1079 re-enactment is added to with music and worship. “There is a tremendous amount of work that goes into this,” said Grotz who gives much of the credit to Janet Miller who takes pride in setting the stage for the players. “She’s a perfectionist,” added Grotz, “it looks like Da Vinci’s last supper.” While not all Maundy Thursday church services offer communion, Mitchell’s does. “We will all partake in the Lord’s supper after the performance,” said Grotz. Offered every five years, past years have seen record crowds and Grotz expects that the small church will be packed again. The production lasts about an hour with Grotz reciting the poem, “Lord, is it I?” at the end.

Victim/Witness program has a new home, Siebel honored By Anita Sherman Culpeper Times Staff Writer A smiling Mark Nowacki showed no outward signs of the hectic hours that preceded his opening remarks at a ribbon cutting ceremony held last Friday. Gusty winds and chilly weather had the door to the new office locked open, strong winds downed trees to his home and he had no power. Nowacki is known for his optimism so it was all laughs with his positive attitude outweighing any logistic challenges. After dedicating some 20 years of his professional career advocating for victim’s rights, he fittingly dedicated their new office located at 114 W. Cameron Street to the “survivors.” Given his weather hurdles, it was very moving as he spoke about the “winds of change” referring to not only their new location - Nowacki started in what amounts to a closet and after seven offices finally has a fitting home - but more importantly to the transformation from victim to survivor that occurs when the winds of compassion, passion and support reach out. Those helping hands are coming from the county’s law enforcement - state, county and town - and the court system and those attorneys privileged to be a part of that system, as well as support from local elected officials and the community at large. Local churches and organizations like Team Jordan lend their support as well. This year in addition to showcasing their new offices, Nowacki was proud and delighted to recognize a member of the Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office Pete Siebel as

this year’s recipient of the Victim Advocacy Award. Retired from the Virginia State Police Rick Jenkins talked about strength, resilience and justice and how he has seen it many times in his long career. Nowacki shared these comments in his congratulatory remarks for Pete Siebel. Detective Pete Siebel graduated from Central Shenandoah Criminal Justice Academy in 1992. Has held various rank throughout his career up to and including Division Commander. He spent the majority of his career in major crimes as a Detective and Supervisor. He also has many specialties but the most noteworthy is his background as a forensic investigator. Pete also has hundreds of hours of training including the Virginia Forensic Academy where he graduated in 2001. Since then, he has taught at that academy and has done guest lectures at various Criminal Justice Academies as well as the Federal Executive Institute. Pete was also in Afghanistan for several years working with the Counterinsurgency Targeting Operations and Rule of Law. He was formally recognized and commended by the Ambassador of Afghanistan for his efforts. Because of the efforts that he has put forth he has been invited to be a guest speaker several times for the International Forensic Symposium, and has become a permanent delegate to the International Forensic Congress. Pete is also a retired Chief warrant officer from the United States Army and a veteran of multiple Deployments. Pete also is a life member of the Culpeper VFW.

Let’s get that lawn looking beautiful

It's finally spring! Nurseries are brimming with new plants, soil temps are steady and warmth and moisture is plentiful. Everything needed to get your lawn growing is right at your fingertips. I am often asked “what's the secret to a beautiful yard?” The secret is quality materials, start at the right time of year and know what you're up against. The first step is always to get a soil test, you can't fix it if you don't know what's broken. Second, you have to decide if you're going to be fighting weeds this year or installing new grass. These two cannot usually be done effectively at the same time so don't go grab two bags of pre emergent weed and feed and a bag of grass seed from Lowes and hope to fix the lawn. Truth is the weed and feed will most probably just kill your new grass seed.

OUTDOOR OUTLOOK

Donald Sherbeyn

Instead let’s concentrate on getting the desirable grass strong and new grass growing. We can battle weeds at all times of year but establishing new lawn is best in spring. To take a soil test get a large zip lock bag and a claw hammer with about a 3" claw. Use the claw portion of the hammer to pull plugs of soil from at least 15 different locations or one plug per 1k square feet, then mix soil up and bring it to a place like CFC by Walmart to have it tested. The test results will let you know exactly what your lawn will need. Once you know what your lawn needs you can choose a fertilizer that meets those needs. Choose a slow release fertilizer that matches the required nutrients and spread just before a rain to maximize your investment. The three main ingredients of fertilizer are nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium. What do these do for your lawn you ask? Well, nitrogen promotes new growth in the blade of the grass and aids in photosynthesis, phosphorus is important for healthy root development

and potassium helps your lawn stand strong against drought. Choosing a quality grass seed is absolutely necessary if you want to have a beautiful lawn. Choose a seed mix designed for our region and your specific needs. We prefer to use blends of fescue. My top choice for grass seed is “Winning Colors.” This is a blend of four top rated fescue seeds with a 0.00 percent weed seed, 0.00 percent other crop seed, 0.46 percent inert matter and a 90 percent germination rate. Winning Colors will grow in shade and sun and handles heat as well as the cold. It is applied at four pounds per 1k square feet for over seeding and 8 pounds per 1k square feet on new lawns. As far as I know we are the only local supplier of Winning Colors. We do also use Southern Lawn, Southern Lawn shade, and Southern Lawn extreme when conditions warrant them. Southern Lawn blends can be found at our nursery and the Co-op down by the train depot. These blends have been blended specifically to work in our regions. Probably not something you're

Is your privacy about to go public? If a stranger walked up to you on the street and asked to view your search history on your cell phone or read your text messages, would you let them? Would you even feel comfortable letting your spouse, mom, or dad read it? Not likely, but now, it’s perfectly legal for your Internet Service Provider (ISP) to read it and sell it. It has been standard practice for your ISP to collect data from monitoring your internet browsing habits and then sell it off for marketing purposes. In 2016, a rule not yet in effect, was created with the Federal Communication Commission (FCC), which requires you to opt-in before your ISP sells your data. On March 28, both the houses in Congress along party lines, voted to roll back the 2016 rule. The President signed the bill on April 3. With the implementation of this law, ISPs can now do whatever they want with your internet history without your consent. ISPs were lobbying that they were at a major disadvantage when it comes to places such as Facebook and Google that can collect data and can target certain markets. But the key difference is, no one forces you to use Facebook or Google. You have a personal choice if you want to share, when to share it and to which group of people. You don’t have to be on Facebook, but you must use your ISP to use the Internet. Here in Culpeper, if you have broadband internet, you probably don’t have a choice of providers.

DATA DUMP

John Barker

Very few people have that choice, but what can you do to protect yourself from privacy snooping ISPs? First, all web browsers have a “do not track” or “incognito mode”, but this only hides your browsing history from the next person that uses that computer, not from your ISP. You can purchase a third party Virtual Private Network (VPN) service that will encrypt your traffic to a random destination, but you must trust the VPN provider with your data. So, it is important to do your research on the privacy policy of VPN providers. For Chrome, Firefox or Opera web browsers, you can install HTTPS Everywhere that will make sure your browser uses a secure connection. The ISP will still be able to track you to a degree. For example, if you go to WebMD, your ISP will be able to see you went there but not which specific pages you visited. You can also try and call your ISP to opt-out of the tracking. It’s anyone’s guess how effective that approach will work since the customer service track record of ISPs is some of the worst for any type of business out there. It is ironic that with a major ramp up of the government’s cyber security programs due to alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election, that the same elected officials passed a law revoking the rights of citizens to any privacy when using the internet. At this point I cannot see how this law brings anything positive to the average person, but I am curious on your take, agree or disagree?

STAGING SPECIALIST

Your digital presence is the sum of all of the spaces online where your story and your information is available. This might be a combination of spaces which you are aware of and control - your website for example. This may also include spaces you might not be aware of -- directory and review sites, perhaps. The three categories of avenues available can each serve to advance your organization’s objectives in different ways. Will you need all of these right now? Perhaps not.

CYBER BYTES Irene Borys

Why Your Digital Presence Matters With nearly all Americans now online and nearly half of all consumers making decisions based on online data, the digital frontier is more important than ever before. Your potential clients are influenced by your story online. Having a good or bad digital presence can have material impact on your reputation, your revenue, and ultimately, your long term success. Further, many of these activities can offer low cost forms of marketing - a great value for the impact. The Top 3 Avenues of Your Digital Presence When you search for yourself in Google often a number of options come up in more or less three categories. Your Website This should rank high on the list of your Google results - the website is unique among your digital presence, as it serves as the backbone from which all of the rest of your digital identity is built. Really, your website is the only ‘real estate’ - online you own outright and can control 100 percent. In every other channel, you are a ‘renter’ - while you are there, you must play by the rules laid out by each respective channel. Ensure it’s a strong backbone -- a mobile friendly, fast loading website with current, relevant and unique content, stunning images. Ensure the website does a solid job of sharing your best stories, most dynamic achievements, your mission, vision and values.

Further, the website deserves to be the place where your content resides and from which your content is shared. Say, you write a great article to engage your target audience. Where do you publish it first? And where do you share it after? My argument - for the best bang for your effort - publish first on your website’s news or blog page. It resides on your website. Then, from your website, broadcast the link to your social sites, which will direct readers back to your website where they can read it, find other articles, engage other information and get to know you better. If you only are able to spend time on one thing, and do it well - ensure you have a fantastic website which delivers consistent, relevant and unique content to engage your target audiences. Your Directories and Review Sites The next place thing you probably find in your results are channels where you have a directory page, or sites that collect reviews. The difference between the two is - a directory has information about you - a listing site, like yellow pages, the local chamber you belong to, etc. A review site may have similar information about you - hours, address, pictures. However, the purpose of a review site is to collect people’s reviews of their experiences with you. These are the Yelp, Trip Advisors, Angie’s List, and Google+ reviews. Your Facebook Page - although a social media site, is increasing in prominence as a review site. Directories are easier to address - log in and ensure your logo and information are current. In some you can add a photo gallery, offer a deal or coupon, add product information or menus. Take advantage of the best each directory offers. Review sites take more work, but are more important. Reviews of people’s experience strongly influence the behavior of your target audience. You must both deliver quality products, services and experiences - while implementing successful processes to request reviews from your happy clients. Identify the moment in your client lifecycle when they are happiest, ask them to share their positive experience - and be specific to your target review site. If you only have time for one -- focus on Google+ reviews since it will have a disproportionately high impact on your search rankings. Remain active on the review sites to

Whether you are a homeowner, have your own business or both understanding your digital presence can be overwhelming. Here are the basics - what avenues comprise your digital presence and how each might advance your growth. ➤ Digital, from Page 14 manage your reputation -- respond to negative reviews, offer to take an action to ameliorate the situation, and ask for an update to the review. Challenge yourself to do what it takes to change your negative reviewers into your advocates. (I know, easier said than done!) Consumers want an unfiltered view of the experiences you deliver, and review sites are where this can be found. Your Social Media Sites Social media sites offer a unique storytelling opportunity. The time based character of posting offers the ability for you to share relevant, unique and consistent content to your target audiences to build a following, engage an audience around a conversation of interest and establish yourself as an authority in your industry. People read what’s interesting to them. Sometimes what they’re interested in reading happens to be marketing whose intent to influence, inform, educate with a specific targeted action as a result. Social media channels are great avenues for this. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and others offer opportunity for posting content of varying shapes, sizes and lengths. Twitter limits number of characters per post, but Twitter’s algorithm serves all posts to your followers. Instagram is a photo sharing channel. The posts on your organization’s Facebook Page will not naturally reach all of the folks who like your page…but their paid targeting can greatly expand the number of eyes on each post. They offer varying audience sizes. Each channel offers opportunity for

paid marketing some way or another. I recommend each client take the step to sign up for the paid marketing accounts, if only to gain access to the powerful analytics available to see how your content is performing, post by post, and modify your approach based on this. One note of advice. You might think to avoid sharing other folks’ content because you feel you’re promoting a competitor. I’ll advise - the algorithms that measure your relevance increase your authority as your share interesting and relevant information, especially from other reliable sources. So share other people’s stuff, it benefits you. I’d advise if you only have time for one social site, depending on your industry, stick to Facebook - it’s the biggest audience with the best targeting, its reviews are increasingly rendering on Google search, and it’s versatile in terms of content and target audiences. Especially if your services are fun, your products are cute, pretty or otherwise something people engage as recreation or interest. Event venues, artists, dog groomers, home builders, boat rentals. People go to social sites to socialize and check in on their interests… but they are not shopping. This is your opportunity to inform, impress and educate, create brand advocates, increase your following, and on occasion, it’s the right place to sell. I hope this article has served to layout the basic landscape of the avenues available to you in identifying your presence online and why that matters. Happy marketing!

VIEWS

While you’re waiting in the doctor’s office

DR. TOM NEVIASER

Continuing from last month’s column about how an orthopedist’s office schedule can be disrupted, a scheduler’s job is to get everyone seen and keep the schedule running like clockwork. This is not the easiest job. One patient always complained about the time “wasted” in my office. “I should charge you for my time,” she jested. I offered her the job of scheduler at $50,000 a year plus a healthy bonus if she could schedule my days so that no patients ever complained about having to wait. She never took me up on my offer. I understood her frustrations. Sometimes a schedule gone awry is entirely the doctor’s fault. He may spend too much time on hospital rounds and show up late at the office. He might spend too much time on the telephone allowing calls to run into office hours. I answered doctors’ calls but felt it best to return other calls at the end of the day. A doctor, hoping to impress a patient with intense interest, may take too long seeing him. That patient will be impressed, but that time spent lengthened the waiting time of others. Talking about things other than medicine will increase scheduled time as there’s no time for social chitchat. I’ve been guilty of it, but I tried to resist the temptation. Then there’s this type of incident that absolutely destroyed my office schedule. My secretary told me that a

THEM BONES AND JOINTS

patient was on the phone, believe it or not, canceling his appointment as he was about to commit suicide. Honestly, I kid you not. I was on the phone for three hours attempting to talk him out of it, all the while, writing notes to my secretary to call the police and have the call traced. Tracing a call evidently is not as easy as it seems on television. Finally, I was notified that the police were on their way and for me to keep him on the phone, and, in the end, they found him, and a death was averted. At the end, I had 16 patients in my waiting room, some sitting on the floor in the hall in front of me, while I corresponded with this man. They all applauded the successful ending, but office hours ran into the night that day. There is an epilogue to this story. Three to four weeks later, this man called to thank me for saving his life. Sometimes, life can be beautiful in the midst of all its confusion. If and when you do see the doctor, here are a few suggestions that may help make the best use of your appointment time. 1. Write down your complaint in as few words possible. 2. Keep yourself on track at the visit. 3. If you have several problems, describe the most severe one first, then the others. 4. Be ready for questions about the location of the pain, when it started, whether it followed an injury, whether you have had the same pain before, level of pain, is pain constant or intermittent, and so on. 5. Be ready to give a concise history without going off on a tangent. 6. Describe treatments another doctor has prescribed or those you have tried.

7. Carry your notes with you when you go! 8. Before your appointment, arrange to pick up your medical records, X-rays, and reports of any studies to bring with you. If the referring doctor offers to send the material, check ahead of time to be sure it was done. 9. If you’re fearful about seeing a doctor, the “white coat syndrome,” arrange to bring your spouse, another family member, or a friend along. 10. If you’re nervous, tell the doctor, and ask him to repeat the diagnosis and proposed treatment for you. If necessary, ask him to write it down. Don’t let the big medical words go by without asking what they mean or asking to have them explained. 11. If you don’t understand, say so. Don’t just nod “yes” in hopes of getting out as soon as possible. 12. Always review the proposed treatment with the doctor, to be sure you understand and can follow the instructions. If you think you might not be able to follow them, tell the doctor so and why. 13. If you sense that the doctor is not completely focused on your problem, offer to come back at a more convenient time. Nine times out of ten, this will jolt him and redirect his attention. 14. Above all, realize you’re not the only person being seen that day. 15. Respect the doctor’s and the other patients’ time.

There is one wine that holds the American imagination like no other: Champagne. The golden bubbles are the king of celebrations and the muse of more than a few iconic songs. No small part of that special reverence that we as a culture have for sparkling wine comes from the aura of mystery around it. It is a generally misunderstood wine in the American market, and I hope to pull back a bit of the curtain

hiding the magic. Most everyone knows that it is only called ‘Champagne’ if it is actually from the region of Champagne in France. There, the bubbles are made from one or more of three grapes: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. When you find a bottle labelled ‘Blanc de Blanc,’ it is made from pure, unblended Chardonnay, and is among the brightest and cleanest of Champagnes. ‘Blanc de Noir’ indicates pure Pinot Noir, whether the wine is white or rosé, and is usually much richer in style. Poor, lonely Pinot Meunier is never used without being blended. Elsewhere, the bubbles aren’t quite as expensive. Throughout the rest of France, sparklers are referred to as ‘Cremant,’ and will often have a softer, creamier bubble. The Italians are famous for their Prosecco, made mostly from the grape Glera. Whether sweet or dry, these offer a brighter, fruitier take on the bubbles for your party. The Spanish have their lovely Cava, which is much closer to their French neighbors in style than the Italians. Mostly made from the grape Macabeo, Cava is a great money-saver when you’re craving fine Champagne but your wallet is craving tap water. Even the Germans have their elusive Sekt, lively versions of their Riesling, Spätburgunder (their name for Pinot Noir), or other grapes. If you want something refreshing for spring, Sekt will blow you away! Here in the US of A, we have some sparkling masterpieces of our own. Monticello, Virginia, is home to the elegant Thibaut-Jannison, a collaboration between two masters of true Champagne. I first tried it as a gift from a VERY French chef, who told me to my astonishment that it was as good as any Champagne. (I have yet to hear another Frenchman say this about ANYTHING).

Gruet Winery, located in New Mexico, produces some exceptional sparkling wines.

Another surprising set of gems is the collection of wines produced by Gruet Winery, made by another French family in, of all places, New Mexico. After commenting frequently on the fact that the New Mexican terroir could grow excellent sparkling wines (and being routinely mocked for that statement), the Gruet family began producing Champagne-style bubbles there in the late 1980s, and have captured the hearts of bubble-lovers ever since. Last but not least, it is important to note the difference in sparkling wine consumption in American culture and the cultures in the rest of the world. Here we associate sparkling wine, no matter where it’s from, with major celebrations. It is surprising to most of us to learn that we are alone in this belief. In the rest of the world, bubbly is just another style of wine, meant to be paired with the perfect food or simply consumed when you’re feeling like it. We should consider trying these wines with richer, softer cheeses (the bubbles clean the rich, creamy texture from our palates), perhaps with some local honey (great to stave off our springtime allergies!). The bubbles will even cut through the weight of (gasp) fried foods. Champagne and other sparkling wines can be the perfect partner to food and fun this spring and summer. The wines will welcome your attention on any day, but, if you choose to save them for special occasions, I don’t think they will mind the added prestige. Whether you drink them to mark something momentous or as an everyday friend, I hope you have plenty of cause to enjoy some bubbles this year! Jim Hollingshead is a rabid oenophile who was born in Wisconsin, grew up in Texas, and has fallen in love with the rolling hills of Virginia. He is The Wine Nerd at the Culpeper Cheese Company, and occasionally pretends to have other interests. You can reach him at 540-8274757 or jim@culpepercheese.com

DAIRY DAZE. While soft serve ice cream treats are its mainstay, Dairy Queen is sure to dazzle with its array of other offerings from burgers and chicken to their new Alaskan Pacific Cod sandwich. Think fan food not fast food. Their $5 Buck Lunch includes dessert. And if you order a Blizzard and it’s not served upside down, get your next one for free. Speaking of Blizzards, Dairy Queen sponsors one of the local T-Ball teams. Players get one free after their games. For assistant manager, Wanda Jeffries, who has been with this Dairy Queen location for six years, her hands down favorite is the Chocolate Extreme Blizzard. “I make it with chocolate ice cream,” she smiled. Dairy Queen has its own brand of ‘Happy Hour.’ Every day from 2-5 p.m. you can get “whatever you can drink from a straw” for half price. That includes shakes and malts, sodas, smoothies, moolattes, Arctic Rush, Lemonade Chillers and frappies. Community-minded, local churches benefit from their frozen treats and recently members of the American Heritage Girl Scout Troop recently got a cake making demonstration. Starting with one store in 1940, Dairy Queen now boasts 6,000 restaurants in the United States, Canada and 18 other countries. We’re glad that one of those is in Culpeper. Pictured (l-r) Wanda Jeffries, Rebekah Haun, a senior at Culpeper County High School, “only 19 days before I graduate,” and Tim Ramey from Madison County who is having a good time,”we never had one till Randy opened this one.” Dairy Queen is located at 16125 Ira Hoffman Lane.

culpeper WAY OF THE CROSS: If atmospheric ambiance is any indicator, the bright, blue and sunny skies provided the perfect day for Culpeper’s inaugural spiritual and ecumenical ‘Way of the Cross’ event held Saturday. Commemorating the Stations of the Cross, more than 100 arrived to process from St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church to Culpeper Methodist Church stopping at other churches along the way. The procession was interspersed with readings and musical offerings. Main organizers were Pastor Kate Costa and Dr. Michael Watts.

WALKING FOR A CURE: April’s first Saturday had 10 teams walking in support of not only the Driggers family but to fund research on a cure for multiple sclerosis. Culpeper’s Walk MS started in the courtyard of Culpeper Baptist Church and continued down Davis Street. Their fundraising goal of $13,000 was surpassed by raising more than $14,000. Members of the Carefree Cruisers team along with Angie Miller, a regional representative of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, posed for a team photo following the walk.
