County agrees to settle in civil lawsuit ➤ Islamic Center of Culpeper moves forward By Anita Sherman


It’s been a full year since the Culpeper County Board of Supervisors considered a request by the Islamic Center of Culpeper for a pump and haul permit on a parcel of land, about an acre, located on Route 229 at 14434 Rixeyville Road. It was at their April board meeting in 2016 that the board denied the request by a 4-3 vote. Those opposed were Stevensburg representative Bill Chase, Chairman Jack Frazier, East Fairfax representative Steve Walker and West Fairfax representative Gary Deal. Those in favor were Catalpa representative Sue Hansohn, Salem district representative Alexa Fritz and Jefferson District representative Brad Rosenberger. “If there is a situation where there is no other alternative, I see that, but in this case there is not a hardship...they’re buying this property at a cheap price and stand to enhance their situation by doing this. They can walk away from this property and look to another [that doesn’t have these issues].” “I cannot support, it’s not about who but about what,” said Frazier last year. Flash forward and the board’s decision last year escalated into a civil lawsuit based on religious discrimination. Looking back the board had approved the majority of pump and haul requests that had come before them. After their denial last year, the county revisited their policy on pump and haul requests. On Tuesday evening, the board held a public hearing to receive comments on the proposed FY18 budget and proposed tax rate. The county administration building meeting room had many rows filled. But only two spoke and both were complimentary about the board’s work with the budget. The majority were there to learn of the board’s decision following a later closed session in which the settlement agreement would be discussed. Once again the vote was 4-3 to

“I cannot support, it’s not about who but about what.” Jack Frazier Culpeper County BOS chairman said in a quote last year agree to settle in the long standing case. As they were last year, Chase, Frazier and Walker were opposed As they were last year, Hansohn, Fritz and Rosenberger were in favor. Gary Deal reversed his position from last year and voted to approve. At the time the request was made last year, the applicant was in negotiations to purchase the property. Since then, that did happen with a purchase price around $15,000. With the county’s agreement to settle, the applicant will not need to resubmit any additional information. As stated in the settlement agreement, “The County and the ICC (Islamic Center of Culpeper) are glad to resolve this matter expeditiously and without further litigation. The Board of Supervisors welcomes the ICC to Culpeper County as it does all other religious organizations. This matter is resolved in the spirit of compromise and good will without being tried. The County makes no admission of wrongdoing and believes that, if the case had been tried, the County would have been absolved of any wrongdoing. The ICC believes that, if the case had been tried, the ICC would have prevailed. The County will issue a pump and haul permit to the ICC until such time as water and sewer becomes available to the property.” In the settlement agreement, the County agrees to compensate the ICC for the ICC’s direct, outof-pocket expenses arising from the denial. The ICC and the County agree that this amount totals $10,000. According to the agreement, once signed by all parties, the County has 14 business days to pay this amount. With the county’s agreement to settle, the parties will jointly move the Court for an order that dismisses the Civil Action with prejudice. One bystander commented that if the county had decided to take the case to trial it would have cost the county considerably more.



Frank Reaves is a jack of many trades. I often extol the virtues of Yowell Meadow Park. It is such a great benefit for the people of the Peper. This spring there has been a lot of "sprucing up" going on there. If you haven't taken a walk on the newly recovered should. Frank is a bike officer who rides through the park meeting and greeting folks and making the place a little friendlier and a little safer. He reminded me that I had taken his picture before at Mountain Run Lake where he was officiating at a wedding. Two parks and two kinds of service for Frank. He is a pretty cool guy and he sits on the Culpeper Town Council making him even cooler. ➤ Check out Rich’s blog at and Faces of Culpeper on Facebook

County welcomes new director of economic development ➤ Sheridan focuses on balance with his new position By Anita Sherman Culpeper Times Staff Writer No county is an island when it comes to establishing its footprint in the region and state business map. Lots of partnerships are involved bringing new business into one county versus another or one state versus another. Culpeper’s new director of economic development, Phil Sheridan, hopes to capitalize on an existing network of such partnerships as he looks to guide Culpeper’s future business footprint. His last position as a business manager with the Virginia Eco-

nomic Development Partnership in Richmond and before that working in business development with the North Carolina Department of Commerce would seem to have him well suited to make things happen moving forward. “It’s all about balance,” he said already impressed with what he has observed in Culpeper’s people and infrastructure. “What we have here is worth preserving,” he said in terms of the county’s historic rural heritage. But Culpeper is equally poised to attract businesses because of its location, access to major highways, regional airport, and quality of life. “When you think about future businesses locating here...things to consider are businesses that will have a long life and employ our youth and perhaps slow the num➤ See Sheridan, Page 5

➤ Sheridan, from Page 4 ber of folks who commute to other places for work.” Along with preserving while at the same time promoting the county, Sheridan is an advocate for patience as well. “You want to do things right, put in the planning necessary and look to smart, sustainable growth...that in the long run will have the most positive effect.” Here just a little over a month, Sheridan see’s a solid base in the town, the county, the Chamber, Culpeper Renaissance and tourism. He views all as a strong team, working collaboratively and having success. “Our success is their success,” he stated referring to state pride when a business decides to locate in your an example companies like Euro Composites, Rochester, Continental Automotive, SWIFT, Verizon Terremark to name a few that call Culpeper home. It’s usually through the state or

regional groups like the Central Virginia Partnership for Economic Development that counties will learn of companies looking for a home. “They’ll look at your infrastructure, availability of utilities, etc. and other site specific’s a process.” Sheridan smiles when asked if his engineering and business background benefits his ability to make connections and put things together. He has a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Maine, a master’s degree in civil engineering from North Carolina State University and an MBA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Right now his work is all consuming but Sheridan loves the mountains and enjoys hiking “It’s all very exciting,” he admitted. “I’m looking for good things.” Sheridan’s office is located at 803 S. Main Street. You can reach him at

Dave Brat (Va-7) orders coffee from Wally Hudson at Moving Meadows Farm & Bakery Tuesday afternoon during a Brat Chat.

Brat deals with harsh questioning at 'Brat Chat' ➤ Constituents hammer congressman on health care, working across the aisle It was billed as a Chat with Brat. Congressman Dave Brat (VA-7) arrived in Culpeper Tuesday afternoon for a scheduled conversation with the community. It was held at Moving Meadows Bakery on Davis Street, a place that Brat has visited before. Roughly 50-60 filled the standing room only area. Brat bought himself a cup of coffee and turned to the crowd thanking them

all for coming to what he envisions as several of these informal visits to hear from his constituents. “Let’s talk about the elephant in the room,” began Brat referring to the healthcare debacle. Many had already approached him about the subject hoping to hear his views. Not a few sentences in, a group of women began heckling, laughing and contradicting his statement denying that America’s healthcare system was in collapse. Brat reminded the audience that it was his intent to have a conversation but that he be allowed an opportunity for civil discourse and then would gladly take

Springtime and the urge to swarm

This month was a little weird. Between the storm we had with lightning hitting one of our trees and falling on our neighbor’s fence and all the devastation around town, I was sure that when I got home (visiting grandchildren out West), I would find our hives knocked over or worse with our bees scattered to the four winds. Upon checking, I found them to be just fine, whew! With our observation hive at the shop we found that we were getting close to an over populated hive and would have to move them home and take a few frames out, essentially splitting the hive. Now with the weather all

➤ Swarm, from Page 8 wonky, finding a day that would be beneficial to move them, and checking my husband’s schedule imagine our surprise when we went to move them, we were too late, yup they had swarmed. After talking to a way more experienced beekeeper, Jerry Headley, of Virginia Bee Supply, he said, "Every healthy hive has the urge to swarm in the spring. Swarm Cells are ALWAYS located out of the way at the bottom of the frames. Once a Queen Swarm Cell is capped, the old queen and up to half of the hive will leave to find a new residence...increasing the likelihood of giving the species a better chance at survival." And yes, that is exactly what happened. The queen left behind quite a bit of brood (baby bees waiting to be born) and yes there were a few queen cells. After deliberating with Jerry we decided to let nature take its course, after all this is the workings of a hive, so we will let it play out. So come check on our bees and see what they have decided. What I failed to mention was that earlier that day I was called to retrieve a swarm which was in a most auspicious location, thank you Battlefield Ford for calling me.

Speaking to a few people that work there they felt strongly enough to not want to destroy them and called us. They have a proper new home and after checking them this week they are doing quite well. Retrieving a swarm is really exciting, not so exciting is when your bees swarm! This is also the time of year when everything seems to be in bloom and the bees are working hard to bring in everything they can. This also means that I may get a call and have to close the shop. Please be aware that the bees are a very important part of my life and I hope to share my many adventures with you. I will also keep telling people that want to become beekeepers to take a class, see if this is something you want to do and learn everything you possibly can either with the Northern Piedmont Beekeepers Association or Virginia Bee Supply. These are two that I know of but I'm sure there are more organizations out there. One other thing, and if nothing else, please remember these are living beings and when you take on the mantel of caring for them you become a keeper of the bees..

➤ Schools, from Page 13 FCCLA Programs and received the Silver Outstanding Chapter Award. In addition, our chapter was awarded the Largest Chapter in Virginia trophy. This year’s conference featured skits, speakers, and workshops on topics centered around the theme “Unlimited Possibilities.” In addition to these activities, students participated in competitive events. STAR (Students Taking Action with Recognition) Events give students the opportunity to create a project and present it to a panel of judges. There are 32 different events from which students can choose. Katelyn Myers, Maddie O’Reilly, and Kayla Sain competed in the National Programs in Action Senior Level. They received gold and 2nd place in their category qualifying them to compete at the FCCLA National Leadership Conference this July in Nashville, TN. Each year during the conference, eight students are elected from Virginia to serve as a state officer for Family, Career and Community Leaders of America. Students who run for office must complete a knowledge test and give a speech in front of all those in attendance at the State Leadership and Recognition Conference.


Each chapter has representatives who votes for the leaders they want to see in office. Once elected, the officers-elect immediately go into a private interview with a committee to determine which office they shall hold for the upcoming year. Eastern View High School 11th grade student, Katelyn Myers, daughter of Melanie and Darrell Myers, was elected and inducted as the 2017-18 Virginia FCCLA Vice President of Public Relations. Throughout the year, Katelyn will attend the National Conference in July as a representative of Virginia, travel to various schools to lead workshops, attend meetings with the other state officers, and plan the 2018 Virginia FCCLA State Conference. She has taken on the great responsibility to be a leader among her peers, the community, and the state. FCCLA is unique among student organizations because projects and events--such as the State Leadership Conference--are planned and run by its student members. This prime focus of Virginia FCCLA, youth-centered leadership, helps members develop those skills for life--planning, goal setting, problem solving, decision-making, and interpersonal communication— that are necessary in the workplace and in the home.

Map making, part two:

In April 1819 John Wood began his survey of Virginia counties in preparation for the publication of a state map. He had secured the job through the recommendation of Thomas Jefferson. Wood had been the mathematics instructor of Jefferson’s grandson, Thomas Jefferson Randolph, at the Academy of Louis H. Girardin in Richmond from 1809 to 1810. Wood worked with a team of assistant surveyors and completed the surveys of roughly 10 counties every six months. On August 14, 1821, in a letter to the Virginia Executive Council, he reported that 80 counties had been completed. Included were large counties beyond the Blue Ridge where he noted his expenses were double that of his work for counties on the eastern side. By February of 1822, Wood had completed 96 of Virginia’s 102 counties and noted that, “There now only

remains six counties to be returned, which I shall do by the 1st of June, and I flatter myself that the General Map will be completed by the 1st of August.” Unfortunately, Wood died at his home in Richmond sometime during the spring at the age of 47. He left no will, and the cause of his death was not known. An inventory of his belongings included the expected surveying tools, but also a large library containing books in Greek, Latin, and French. The surveys were completed by Herman Boye, an engineer and cartographer from Denmark. The finished state map was published under Boye’s supervision in 1827. The Philadelphia firm of Henry S. Tanner took a year to engrave it using copper plates, and the Virginia legislature had to appropriate $6,000 to pay for the printing of 12,000 copies. The map was well received, praised by the press, and a source of pride for the Virginia Governor, William B. Giles, who ordered a copy sent to Lafayette in France. Among the county surveys completed by John Wood in 1821 was the map for Culpeper County. The map was a crosshatch of roads

and runs, the landscape dotted with numerous mills. Only two of the roads were named: Fox Mountain Road, and Poe’s Road (in the area of future Rappahannock County). The mills included Norman’s Mill, Slaughter’s Mill, Wither’s Mill, and Hashbarger’s Mill. Some of the taverns noted were Herring’s Tavern, Colvin’s Tavern, Smith’s Tavern, and Ralls Tavern. Towns, or villages, located on the map included Fairfax, Amissville, Waterford, Jefferson, Springfield, Stevensburg, Georgetown, Sperryville, Woodville, and Washington. The map showed the locations of some of Culpeper’s earliest Baptist Church buildings: Mt. Poney Meeting House, Cedar Run Meeting House, and Salem Meeting House. The earliest Methodist Church was indicated on Potato Run and known by the grand name of “The Tabernacle.” East of Stevensburg, the old “Fork Church” of the Church of England still stood. And below it was the most intriguing item on the map, a notation of “Old Rope Wks” near the present vicinity of Lignum.

paign has focused on his resistance to what he calls the hateful politics of President Trump. He has proposed a plan to make community college debt-free for two years. Perriello has been endorsed by former Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, a U.S. senator from Vermont.


Virginia will elect a new governor this year. The governor’s position is one of great power and influence, as the current officeholder, Terry McAuliffe, has demonstrated by breaking the record for most vetoes in Virginia history. However, during the last gubernatorial race in 2014, the voter turnout was less than 42 percent, compared with 72 percent during last year’s presidential election. While not as publicized as the presidential campaign, the governor’s race will have just as much, if not more, influence over the everyday lives of Virginians. That’s why it’s important to stay informed about who is running and what they stand for. The state Democratic and Republican parties will each hold a primary on June 13 to choose a nominee for governor. The general election will be Nov. 7. Here is a brief summary of each candidate’s qualifications. We also have developed a quiz to help determine which candidate best reflects your political views. Democrats Ralph Northam is lieutenant governor of Virginia and a pediatric neurologist at the Children’s Specialty Group in Norfolk. He served in the U.S. Army and as state senator for the 6th Senate District, before joining McAuliffe’s gubernatorial ticket in 2013. Northam hopes to continue the work he started

Republicans including presidential candidate John Kasich, George W. Bush and former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell. He served as counselor to President Bush during Bush’s second term of office, co-founded a bipartisan lobbying firm and in 2014 narrowly lost a bid for Virginia’s U.S. Senate seat to Democratic incumbent Mark Warner. Gillespie vows to pursue “timeless conservative principles,” including a 10 percent cut in state income tax rates.

Ralph Northam with McAuliffe and is focusing his campaign on economic progress. He said his priorities are affordable healthcare and education and has introduced a plan to make community colleges and workforce training free for what he calls “newcollar” jobs in high-demand fields like health care, cybersecurity and skilled construction trades.

Be Bear Aware Virginia is home to a healthy population of black bears – one of our biggest conservation success stories. Black bears are found almost everywhere throughout the Commonwealth, so it is common for people to live, work and play in bear country. It is incredibly important for people to learn the facts about black bears and to know what they can do to prevent conflicts. This way, we can make sure we keep bears wild and coexist for generations to come. To keep bears wild, what YOU do really matters. A highly adaptable and intelligent animal, bears can live close to people. While local residents often do not know bears are living close by, some bears may wander into residential areas due to the smell of food around homes. The most common food attractants are birdfeeders, garbage, and pet food; however, outdoor grills, livestock food, compost, fruit trees, and beehives will also attract bears. With some simple steps, you can reduce the chances of bears making repeated visits to your neighborhood or property. l Secure your garbage in bear resistant trash cans or store it in a secure building. l Take down bird feeders if a bear is in the area. l Don’t put meat scraps in your compost pile. l Don’t leave pet food outdoors. l Keep your grill clean. l Make sure your neighbors are following the same recommendations. l Install electric fencing, an inexpensive and extremely efficient proven deterrent to bears, around dumpsters, gardens, fruit trees, beehives, or other potential food sources. l After a few failed attempts to find food around homes, bears will usually leave the area in search of natural wild foods. l In almost all cases, a black bear will detect you and leave the area before being noticed. However, if you do encounter a bear, here are some suggestions: l Never run from a bear. Run-

ning could prompt the bear to chase. If in a group, stay together and make sure that your dog stays leashed. l Enjoy and keep a respectful distance! If a bear is up a tree on or near your property, give it space. Do not approach, and bring your pets inside to provide the bear a clear path to leave your property. l If the bear hasn’t seen you, calmly leave the area, while making a bit of noise so the bear will not be surprised by you. l If the bear has seen you, back away slowly while facing the bear. Speaking softly may also let the bear know you mean no harm. What do I do if I see a bear cub on my property? Until April/May, sows with cubs are typically in dens. Most small bears people see in early spring are not actual “baby bears” but yearlings (>12 months old). They do not need their mothers to survive. If a small yearling is on your property, the worst thing you can do is feed the bear. Yearlings need to learn how to find natural foods and not become food conditioned or habituated to humans. Once females leave their dens with 4 to 5-month-old cubs, they will typically travel in close groups unless something makes the female nervous. If you see a very small cub, do not try to remove it from the area or “save it.” When sensing danger, a female bear will typically send her cub(s) up a tree and leave the area. In such cases, the female will almost always return to gather up the cub(s) when no people or pets are around, usually after dark. Preventing problems with bears is a shared responsibility between the citizens of Virginia and the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries. Always remember that a bear is a wild animal, and that it is detrimental to the bear, as well as illegal in Virginia, to feed a bear under any circumstances. Even allowing a bear to feed on trash or bird seed is illegal. You can help manage the Commonwealth’s

A dream explodes at Arena CURTAIN CALLS

What happens to a dream deferred? Langston Hughes’ seminal poem, “Harlem”, helped seed Lorraine Hansberry’s masterpiece, “A Raisin in the Sun”, a work which set off seismic rumblings still felt today. Produced for the first time at Arena Stage, the problems of the Younger family presented fifty-six years ago still seem immediate and familiar. Thanks to Tazewell Thompson’s muscular direction, every conflict – and there are plenty of them – has its share of sympathy as well as grit. The ten thousand dollar life insurance check, waited for, counted on, dreamed about, becomes no small player itself as the needs of this three generation family come to the fore. Inspired by an event in Hansberry’s own childhood, the matriarch, Lena (Lizan Mitchell), makes the bold decision to buy a small house in Claibourne Park, an all- white neighborhood. And it’s 1959. She also has enough money to foster the dreams of her two children, and puts son Walter, Jr. in charge of the accounts. This turns out to be the fatal flaw in an otherwise gently heroic life of struggle. Ms. Mitchell’s performance is truly the magnetic force that keeps the family’s storms from tearing them apart. Tiny, vigorous, soft with her grandson, hard as flint when the name of God is belittled, she approaches each moment with a diamond clarity and masterful timing that can find the humor in a moment or its pain. Donald Eastman’s set design for the Fichandler’s four-sided space makes a virtue of limitations by showing us the main living space of the Youngers’ cramped quarters where the furnishings are respectable but secondhand, clean but well-worn. Will Cobbs as Walter, Jr. brings an explosive tension with him at every entrance, and his marriage to Ruth (Dawn Ursula) is filled with collapsed hopes, burned out romance and frequently broken truces. He is the wild card in the deck – the one who, obsessed with money and financial gain, must ultimately decide the value of his own manhood. The play seems to emphasize mismatches and less than ideal pairings. Walter and Ruth radiate the sullen resentment of two people who know they have disappointed each other. She counters his wild ambitions with the steadfast weariness of a woman trapped in her work as a domestic and her life as the wife of an angry man chasing dreams. The discovery that she is pregnant again

Want to go?

What: “A Raisin in the Sun” Where: Arena Stage, 1101 Sixth St. SW, Washington, D.C. Call: (202) 488-3300 or visit Playing through May 21 becomes a touchstone for revealing how this family sees its future. Pulling in her own direction is Walter’s sister, Beneatha (Joy Jones) “the first person in the history of the human race to brainwash herself.” Her medical studies are only second to her search for identity, and as an aspiring doctor, self-proclaimed atheist, and African National wannabe, she seems strangely out of place. Two gentlemen callers reflect the two sides of her struggle. The rich but steadfastly traditional George (Keith Smith) seems to frighten Beneatha with his symbols of the status quo, and Walter can’t resist shooting down his expensive clothes and white shoes even as he longs for them. Joseph Asagai, on the other hand, (Bueka Uwemedimo) a first generation Nigerian, radiates natural wisdom and shows Benny to herself as he holds up the mirror of affection and reason to her wildly reactionary impulses. Hansberry was too good a writer to fall into the all good/all bad trap, and Lena recognizes early on that the idol of money has replaced for her people the idol of freedom. She learns – and Walter discovers too late – that a future equality also holds that crooks, thieves, and idiots will now be black as well as white. That ugliness can be soft spoken and have good manners is aptly illustrated

Dawn Ursula as Ruth Younger and Will Cobbs as Walter Lee Younger in A Raisin in the Sun at Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater, running March 31-May 7, 2017. with the arrival of Karl Lindner in a smooth performance by Thomas Simpson. He isn’t oily or repellent and he doesn’t twirl a villainous moustache. He speaks in generalities about people trying to understand each other – and how they should try to understand that the white neighbors don’t want them moving in. At almost three hours, many plays run out of gas, losing their strength in an overworked redundancy. Not this one. So keen edged are the conflicts and so high are the stakes that attention is never allowed to waver. “A Raisin

in the Sun” is also unique in that what appears to be a happy ending is anything but. While the Youngers tumble enthusiastically out of the shabby little apartment and into the world of “the takers and the tooken”, it is we, the audience, who are left behind with the fatalistic knowledge of what awaits them. Maggie Lawrence is a member of the American Theatre Critics Association. She is a retired drama and English teacher.

deputies administered a dose of Narcan / Naloxone. With no immediate response, deputies utilized the A.E.D. The A.E.D. advised compressions. While deputies were administering compressions they could feel a faint pulse. Still unresponsive, a second dose of Narcan / Naloxone was administered. After the second dose of Narcan / Naloxone was administered, Culpeper County EMS arrived on scene. Culpeper County Emergency Services administered a nasal dose of Narcan.

EMS then started an IV and Frazier began coming to. Deputies recovered evidence of a “dollar bill” with residue and a torn baggie in the room. Frazier advised she wanted help and was transported by ambulance to Culpeper Regional Hospital. The investigation into this case is ongoing and charges will be pending the results of the investigation. Frazier has overdosed at least once previously which has required assistance from Culpeper deputies.

Chocolate and the all occasion gift


Can chocolate be considered a gift for all occasions or is it a gimmick made Meg Oremiatzki-Ast up by marketers and advertisers in order to help make chocolate appear indispensable? While it might not occur to everyone that they could buy chocolate as gifts for all occasions, the simple fact is that they can. Chocolate will always be an appreciated gift. Why is chocolate a great gift to give for all occasions you ask? Well, the answer is quite simple. We all view chocolate as a treat and something quite special. This view of chocolate is all due to the history of chocolate from the pre-Christian times when chocolate was used in rituals by the Mayan civilization, to it arriving in Europe as an expensive beverage, it having aphrodisiac properties attributed to it – right up to modern times when it is renowned as a great comfort food with possible health benefits. In an age when chocolate is in plentiful supply; even the most devout of chocolate consumers can appreciate and value receiving a chocolate gift that’s unusual and special. While many people have a favorite chocolate product that they will buy for themselves, the range and quality of chocolate allows it to still be given as an all-occasion gift that will always be appreciated by those recipients. There does exist those traditional occasions on which chocolate is frequently given as a gift. What occasion would most people consider sending a gift of chocolate? Most people would probably say Easter. Whether that chocolate gift is for a loved one, either male or female, or a child; chocolate Easter Eggs or Easter Bunnies are probably the most traditional of chocolate gifts in modern times. Giving chocolate gifts for all occasions to women, has in itself, has become an accepted and acceptable practice. Along with flowers the giving of chocolate for Valentine’s Day and


Chocolate can be a gift for all occassions. Neuhaus chocolates make a decadent treat for the special person in your life.

Mother’s Day is a pretty well an established practice. Sending Valentine chocolates along with red roses and a bottle of champagne says it all. Sending chocolates as a Mother’s Day gift is a great way to say to your mother – here’s a treat to indulge yourself on this special day. Not that you will have any trouble selecting those special chocolates for your mother, a chocolate gift particularly recommended for Mother’s Day is chocolate truffles; which will add that “something special and a real treat” to the chocolate gift. You can always buy and send chocolates from an online chocolatier, however, for that special touch, I recommend stopping by your local chocolate shop The Frenchman’s Corner at 129 E. Davis Street to pick up those truffles for your mother on her special day or a box of liquor chocolate for your Dad on Father’s Day. For those of you that need a reminder, Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 14th. The Frenchman’s Corner is the one store that has those chocolates for all occasions.! Marc and Meg Oremiatzki-Ast are the owners of The Frenchman's Corner on Davis Street. You may reach the Frenchman at 540-825-8025.

COOKING FROM THE HEART. At 26, Nishan Khatri is running restaurants and couldn’t be happier although he admits that his life is “busy” between their location in Winchester and the one on Davis Street in Culpeper. Natraj opened last October serving Indian cuisine bringing a mixture of subtle and zesty flavors soothed with warm Indian spices. Manager and chef Bikash Puri has his own definition of the large and varied menu offered at Natraj. “We define Indian food not only as shown in the menu but we redefine it per customer choices by adding and removing flavors and ingredients on their plate to their liking.” Puri left a chef position in California to move to Virginia specifically to run the restaurant and answer questions on the misconceptions that most have about Indian food. “I love to cook food on the customer’s table defining and describing the entire process,” added Puri. Khatri shares and echoes those sentiments smiling as he recounts his own arrival in the United States in 2009 from Nepal and how he and his brother became immersed in the restaurant business. “It doesn’t have to be can order with various degrees of heat from one to six with six being the hottest.” Khatri’s mother prepares the chilis in her kitchen in a time honored tradition. Try their Chai tea which has an extra kick due to her unique blend of ingredients. It’s very tasty and while a bit zingier also very calming. Khatri said that they’ve had their eye on Culpeper as a place for one of their restaurants since 2013 and are very pleased with the community’s reception and the friendliness extended from their neighbors on Davis Street. Offering a daily lunch buffet of more than 30 items, carryout services and catering, Natraj has added yet another dining out option for Culpeper foodie fans and those who travel to Culpeper for Indian cuisine not found in immediate surrounding counties. “We cook from the heart and treat our customers like family.” Pictured are (L to R) Nishan Khatri, Dinesh Sunuj and Bikash Puri. Natraj is located at 219 E. Davis Street. Open Tuesdays-Sundays, you can reach them at 540-3175293. (540) 764-4902

Novant lifts flu-related visitor restriction As of Tuesday, April 18 at 7a.m., all Novant Health facilities have lifted the visitor restrictions that were put in place on Feb. 24. During the height of this flu season, Novant Health asked the community to keep visitors age 12 and under out of all its hospital facilities. As a result of the declining number of flu cases seen over the past few weeks, these restrictions have been lifted. The decision has been made in collaboration with other regional hospitals including Novant Health, Carolinas HealthCare System, Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, Cone Health, High Point Regional Health System and Randolph Health. Individuals exhibiting flu symptoms still should not visit patients. Those symptoms include fever, cough and/or sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, headaches and/or body aches, chills, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, and/or diarrhea. However, people who are seeking treatment at hospitals are not subject to the restriction.
