Culpeper Wellness Foundation hosts youth assessment The Culpeper Wellness Foundation will be conducting an assessment this summer for Culpeper youth to discover their recreational interests, needs and desires - including acitivites as well as physical spaces. The assessment, led by Partnerships for Strategic Impact, of Charlottesville, is expected to be completed by September. Culpeper Wellness Foundation President Shari Landy said that an advisory committee of 11 community representatives and students will meet monthly to provide oversight and guidance throughout the process. “The Foundation is interested in supporting programs and activities that promote health and wellness for our local youth,” Landry said. “This recreation assessment will help us understand the needs and interests of middle and high school youth. By understanding what types of recreation activities and spaces will actually attract the participation of youth we will be better prepared to make funding and resource decisions going forward.” Focus groups will be held in June and July and Landry said she expects surveys to be taken by up to 1,5000 6th-12th grade students later this summer, after school is back in session. “We want this process to be objective and inclusive,” Landry said. “We want to be sure that we reach youth of all different backgrounds, economic status and with varied interests. The involvement of an advisory group like the one we’ve assembled ensures that the assessment builds on the unique strengths and resources of Culpeper County. It also provides multiple connections to local young people and helps to build trust and encourage participation.”


Landry said the youth surveys will be short, five minutes or less and web based. “We may off incentives and prizes to encourage youth to complete them,” she said. “We also plan to survey teachers and other youth-serving professionals to get their input on the challenges facing youth and their thoughts on recreation needs.” The results of the survey will be available to the public.

‘Small town girl’ from Rappahannock swept to death in raging river

Adriana Bustamante

(Editor's note: This is weekly series highlighting members of Culpeper's Youth Council. To join Culpeper Youth, go to to apply.) My name is Adriana Bustamante, Founder and Director of Theatrical Arts, I am 22 years old and the Secretary/Treasurer of the Culpeper Youth Mentor Board. As part of the board, I work with my peers to guide youth members in their ideas for future events and ways to grow the organization. I got involved in the board after meeting the President of the then upcoming board, Gary Deal. I had just directed my first musical with a local non-profit and looking for ways to grow on my own and do more for my community, so this initiative seemed like the perfect fit. For those who don’t know me, I love my community. More than the community itself, I love children. As a child, I learned early on that we are to give back to our community if we want to make a positive impact on society. Thanks to the encouragement of great school programs, teachers, and my family, I made myself part of community service projects since the age of 11. I hope to inspire youth in the same way. After much donating, organizing fundraisers, cooking for the homeless, helping at various tasks in local companies, marketing for local events and organizations, performing, leadership conferences, etc. It has come full circle and led me to help new generations of children stay involved in their community, give back, and help others. As an older sister and educator, I look to help kids use their full potential to make them and those around them shine. With Culpeper Youth, I am confident that I am able to do so at a greater scale. Within this organization we give teens a much needed voice for them to tell us their hopes and dreams for our beloved town. With volunteer opportunities, we enable students to acquire life skills and knowledge, as well as provide service to those who need it most. With events like Teen Talks, we can also learn the struggles that they go through nowadays, to better communicate with them and give them the advice and support they need. Overall, I am proud to serve the board of this great non-profit, where we can help teens be the leaders of tomorrow.

A woman with deep roots in Rappahannock County was swept to her death last Wednesday evening after attempting to cross a swift moving portion of river water near Graves Mountain Lodge in Syria. The body of Tasha Rose Hardy, 43, was recovered Saturday morning after an intensive three-day ground and air search that involved local and state law enforcement, search and rescue, and dozens of volunteers who had to be warned in advance of extremely difficult terrain and snakes. Hardy had reportedly set up camp in advance of the annual Graves Mountain Lodge Festival of Music, which began Thursday. The sheriff said the victim’s friend alerted his office at approximately 8:30 p.m. that the pair had attempted to cross the water in an RTV utility vehicle when Hardy stepped out and was swept away. The friend, meanwhile, reportedly became stranded on a flooded spit of land where the Rose and Robinson rivers meet, and had to be rescued in the darkness and transported to the hospital. During the entire three-day search, rescuers faced a constant threat of flash flooding caused by torrential downpours. “Our hearts are really heavy today to learn the devastating news about our Tasha,” friend Nan Butler Roberts told this newspaper on Sunday.

The Dunphys were introduced by committee member Kristi Machon, who noted she is blessed to be neighbors with them. Heavily involved with nonprofits in the community, Ed and Marilyn have a passion for Hispanic culture after meeting in 1978 in Santo Domingo while serving in the Peace Corps. “Ed and Marilyn walk the walk and talk the talk,” Machon said. The Dunphys moved to the area in 1979 and have been heavily involved in the community ever since.

Culpeper Times Staff Writer A love of community binds Jim Bayne and Ed and Marilyn Dunphy. The three were honored last week by the Culpeper 4th of July Celebration committee as Bayne was named the Grand Marshall of the 2018 parade and the Dunphys were named the Spirit Award recipients. Bayne, 89, a U.S. Army veteran and the Illinois National Guard, worked for NASA and settled in Culpeper in 1986 when he and his family was looking for a place to raise horses. They founded Walking H Farm along Bradford Road and Bayne became a visible member of the Culpeper Minute Men Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution.

Aldi hosts grand reopening By Jeff Say

Culpeper Times Staff Writer ALDI in Culpeper hosted its grand reopening Friday, June 1, unveiling a fresh look and new options. Gordon Stewart, Director of Operations at ALDI US, said the Culpeper store orginally opened in 2007 and underwent a small renovation about a year ago. This newest addition includes a 2,000 square foot expansion, taking over part of the shopping plaza that was previously occupied. The new space allowed ALDI to offer more produce,

a fresh interactive bakery and more fresh meat. The addition led ALDI to hire six new employees, giving them 18 at the Culpeper store now. The store was closed for about two weeks while the renovations took place, Stewart said. “I think the customers here in Culpeper have asked for more fresh products,” Stewart said. “They are looking for more produce items, the bakery and fresh meat. We’ve put them right up front so the response is this ‘wow’ factor as soon as you walk in.”


Aldi's hosted its grand reopening last Friday, following a nationwide $1.6 billion renovation project.

The speakeasy in Libertas Manor, owned by Jon and Sarah Russell, is one of the unique aspects of the renovated 1920s era home.

Libertas Manor: An 'urban plantation' By Jeff Say

Culpeper Times Staff Writer Jon and Sarah Russell saw the old house on Sperryville Pike and fell in love. The late 1920s house had obviously seen better days, but they could easily picture turning this former business place into a stately manor for their four children and for the community at large. That’s how Libertas Manor, at 405 Sperryville Pike, came to be. The home, located along Gardner Street and just steps away from Yowell Meadow Park, was purchased by the Russell family for $321,000 on May 23, 2017 and ever since they have been working to make it into an “urban plantation,” as Jon says. “My wife and I really believe in being charitable and hospitable,” Russell said. “We really wanted a home we could turn into an event venue for ourselves and for the community and friends.” As part of their 10-year vision for the home, they will be hosting Blues, Bacon and Bourbon at Libertas Manor June 23 from noon to 4 p.m. Tickets are $20 and will feature three of Jon’s favorite things. It’s just part of their plan to turn their home into a community meeting place - a place where piano lessons and dance lessons take place and another venue for nonprofit organizations to be able to utilize. Jon points to the massive 2 acres in town

and talks about the future - livestock in the one field, the garden already planted in the front, and the orchard going to be planted in the rear. They’ve already started to open their home to the public - last year hosting a fourth of July celebration and since then hosting ballet classes on Tuesdays and guitar, banjo and mandolin classes on Thursdays. “What we’re trying to do is to give people who are into the arts - who are entrepreneurs, who want to have their own business - a place to do that,” Russell said. “We don’t charge them rent, we just allow them to use the space. Our children utilize their services as well. Russell said they named the house Libertas Manor because “we want this to be a place where people feel free to start something new.” The house Originally built in 1929, the house was a residence from then until 1949. That’s when the Russells believe there was a fire, because during renovations they found charred beams when they took the drop ceiling down. From about 1950 until 1989, it served as Geist Funeral Home. After the owner sold the business, the home was used as a rental car location, a church and as a cell phone business. “What we’re trying to do with the house is ➤ See Manor, Page 7

➤ Manor, from Page 6 restore it to a 1920s feel,” Russell said. “The furniture we’re collecting pays tribute to the age of the home.” Inside, there is more than 5,000 square feet, with the downstairs opening into a large great room that is used for the dance hall. In the corner sits a piano from 1843 that was gifted to them. The furniture inside is gently used and from that era of the 20s. “Everything we’re trying to do sustainably and we’re trying to reuse things that are on the property that we find for free,” Russell said. “We’re just trying to do things cost effectively as well as not being wasteful.” In the corner sits a speakeasy, a nod to the prohibition period when the home was built. The Russells’ four children scoot from room to room on a hoverboard, one carrying one of the German Shepherd puppies they recently had. “The kids love it,” Russell said. The house took a lot of work after purchasing. The Russell family did the demolition themselves and then contractors came in and had to replace the roof and almost all of the drywall. Jon said they used 200 sheets of drywall in the project. He said the family got a 1-2-3 step loan for rehabbing a house that was just shy of $100,000. “It still wasn’t enough for everything, so we had to pick up the slack on the backend,” Russell said. “It was well worth it.” Russell, a big fan and student of the 20s, has done extensive research to return the home to its original glory. “It was an era that saw huge economic growth for the country and it was the roaring 20s,” he said. “It was a breather in the era of progressivism. It was a coming of age, America’s renaissance if you will. I just tend to look through books, read things, watch movies and how they decorate from the 20s.”

Local News

Blues, Bacon and Bourbon Russell, a Culpeper Town Councilman, said that when he purchased the home he immediately viewed it as a concert venue. For the Blues, Bacon and Bourbon event, bands will be set up on the back porch. He’s hoping it becomes an annual concert. “Since I’m a big blues fan, we want to be able to start something here,” Russell said. Bands slated to perform include Remington Steel from Remington, playing blues from the 1920s and 1930s, the Kevin Ball Band performing contemporary blues and just recently announced - The White House Band playing instrumental blues. The concert is from noon to 4 p.m. and tickets cost $20. They include pulled pork, bacon, coleslaw, baked beans, three different mixed drinks, bourbon and lemonade, bourbon and cola and mint juleps. Tickets are available at: https://www. Jon said they enjoy hearing from the community and the memories they have of the home. “The most fun thing is when people come here and they used to work here or they had some kind of connection to the building,” Russell said. “We’ve had undertakers come in and say ‘I worked for the guy that owned this place.’” On the back porch, the family grows its own lettuce and herbs, in pots that Sarah sells. The whole house is a conversation piece, and one the Russells hope Culpeper will continue to enjoy. “We’re a real community and one of the things we want to try to do, is that no matter how much we grow we don’t want to lose that identity,” Russell said. “That’s who we are. We’re rural, but we are still able to enjoy some of things of metropolitan living. It’s unique. I really believe in eclectic neighborhoods.”

HISTORY Letters home from William H. Stowe Editors’ Note: In commemoration of the 145th anniversary of the Battle of the Wilderness, Zann Nelson produced and directed a play called Somebody’s Darling based on the letters of William H. Stowe, 2nd Vermont Co F. The narrative, dialogue and letters will be republished for the Culpeper Times in a 4-part series. The dialogue between Mother and William was written specifically for the play while the style was taken directly from Stowe’s letters. John Tole of Rappahannock County was a major contributor to the narrative. A special thanks to Dennis Buttacavoli who owns the letters for allowing us to use them.

He had declared his readiness for yet another battle after a little rest. On May 6,1863, Pvt. Stowe and the 2nd Vermont moved west from Fredericksburg to reinforce the Union Army at Chancellorsville.

If the combat wasn’t hardship enough, word reached the soldiers of a loud and active group of Northerners, called Copperheads, who were protesting the war and demanding that Lincoln negotiate peace with the Confederate government. Stowe penned his sentiments to his family.

BIZ BIO The People of Wellspring: Sarah Russell, FNP For Sarah Russell, health care is about more than fixing what’s wrong: it’s about looking at the whole person, understanding how health plays into daily lived experience, and exploring a wide range of approaches to help keep return visits to a minimum. Now she’s bringing that philosophy to Wellspring. In short, Russell believes that patients are more than a collection of symptoms and conditions. “I take a holistic and integrative approach to all of my patient care and inform patients and their families of both the standard medical approach as well as any alternative or natural approaches,” Russell said. “I want my patients to make informed decisions about their health care, because ultimately, they’re in charge of their health, and my job is to work alongside them and assist them in achieving their health goals.” Russell’s interest in medicine began at a young age, when her family participated in mission trips to the Philippines. It was there Russell

As a family nurse practitioner, Russell has accumulated a wide range of experience in her 13year career, allowing her to gain special insight in areas that include emergency medicine, weight loss, gynecological health, pediatrics, and integrative medicine. At Wellspring, she puts all of those skills and more to use in an environment that’s in sync with her approach to care. “In talking with Wellspring, I learned that if I came on board, I’d be able to practice in the manner I felt passionate about,” Russell said. “The Wellspring philosophy of care is much like my own—patient-focused and holistic, with attention to prevention and not just disease management.”

➤ Zann, from Page 10 copperheads in Vermont. I wish the coming draft would fetch every mother’s son of them out hear. I would like to march them up to the canons mouth with my bayonet at their rear; they would go at a double quick or get the length of my bayonet inserted in the seat of their pants. If they was out this way and should talk as they do up your way they would find themselves acting as a tasle on the end of a rope some fine morning and I would be one to help raise them to that elivated position. I haven’t bin out hear two years fighting for nothing. I came out hear to fight the rebils. I have suffered to much to stand their slangs and insults. It is big business enough for them to stay up in Vermont out of harms way and find fault with our doings out hear. If nothing prevints me from doing so I am a going to see this thing settled. Then I mean to return and diclare ware against the northern rebils. I have already said enough on this subject to let anyone know my opinion on the copperheads.

foliage, the wheat on the diferent plantations is heading out and would look finely were it not for the constent tramp of our armey over this taritory. Virgina is a desolate looking country with the two mightey armeys destroying every thing. The hardest sight that I ever witnest was in the battle of Monday. The enemy thinking to turn our left flank rushed uppon us in solid colums and our artilery opened on them with grape and canister and cut them down by hundreds. The air was full of arms and pieces of men blown to pieces by the murderous fire of our artillery. I never want to see the like again; the ground was covered with the enemys killed & wounded. I had forgotten to say, that the stamps you sent me came safe. Good by for this time your son. William Stowe Until next week, be well.

FILM • “Field of Dreams”

(Universal, 1989) Iowa farmer Kevin Costner one day hears a voice telling him to turn a small corner of his land into a baseball diamond: "If you build it, he will come." "He" appears to be legendary baseball great Shoeless Joe Jackson and his 1919 Black Sox team. Although ostensibly about the great American pastime, baseball here serves as a metaphor for more profound issues. Leonard Maltin lauded "Field of Dreams" as "a story of redemption and faith, in the tradition of the best Hollywood fantasies with moments of pure magic." Also featuring James Earl Jones, Amy Madigan, Ray Liotta and Burt Lancaster in his final screen appearance, the family drama

received three Academy Award nominations: Best Film, Adapted Screenplay (Phil Alden Robinson who also directed), and Original Score (James Horner). It was added to the National Film Registry in 2017. Rated PG, 107 min. Free, at the Library of Congress Packard Campus Theater located at 19053 Mt. Pony Rd. in Culpeper, VA. No reservations taken.

Perhaps screening her films in this presentation will result in discovering more information about the unknown woman.

VIEWS Still 'Crazy' for Patsy Cline She goes ‘walking after midnight’, she ‘falls to pieces’, and – admit it – ‘she’s got you’. You don’t have to be ‘crazy’ to take a show impersonating the great Patsy Cline to her home state, but you do have to be good. Riverside kicks off its 21st season, and scores on some major fronts with Ted Swindley’s flexible slice-of-life, song driven “Always…Patsy Cline.” Like all tribute shows, it is neither musical nor straight drama, but has elements of both as it attempts to resurrect memory of a shooting star who died at the height of fame. Similar theatrical treatments for artists such as Buddy Holly, Hank Williams, and Janis Joplin transport audiences to the time when these were the sounds behind our lives. Patsy Cline ranks with the best of them. There were many possible angles to take, but Swindley opted to tell the story through the lens of an ordinary housewife named Louise Seger whose idol worship of Cline led to their 1961 meeting before a concert in Houston. What followed was a close friendship and letters which the country star signed “love always, Patsy Cline.” One thing sets this production apart from countless other Patsy Cline tributes: the fortuitous pairing of Carter Calvert in the title role and Sally Struthers as Louise. What could be a pleasantly pastel evening of mildly amusing narrative and great songs is now a kick-to-thehead, thousand-watt star power night of music and comedy.

Rusty Bowers Community Day scheduled for Saturday The Rusty Bowers Suicide Prevention Coalition will host the 7th annual Rusty Bowers Life Savers Walk and the inaugural Rusty Bowers Community Day Saturday, June 9 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. We hope our community will come out to support this event to make it a memorable day. We hold this event in memory of our son and brother who lost his life to suicide Oct. 17, 2009. Rusty was a loving, caring person and

In her fifth guest appearance in a Riverside production, the inimitable Sally Struthers scoops the audience up in the palm of her hand and walks away. Her genius for physical comedy, mime, and timing punches up what is actually a simple story. From the moment she first heard “The Cline” on her local radio station, to endless telephone calls to the deejay, to the drum-accented “sexy dude” ride to the grand ballroom in Houston where her idol would appear – these accounts left the audience on my visit helpless with laughter. Nowhere was her professional control and comic grace more on display than in the selecting of a willing volunteer to come up on stage and dance with her. This is not as easy as it looks, but thanks to her well-honed acumen, it created a delightful moment of audience cohesiveness. If there’s one word that comes to mind regarding Sally Struthers the performer, it’s “generous”; a largeness of personality and spirit that embraces a role as it embraces the house. Playing opposite her, Carter Calvert complements that special energy. Not only must she channel the look and sound of the historical Patsy, she must do it with an authority that convinces us that this is the Patsy that Louise would idolize. It doesn’t happen with the same powerhouse wattage, which would be overwhelming, but with a harmonizing friendliness and calm. Backed by a live six-piece band (including Ms. Calvert’s husband on drums) all the songs we came for, twenty-six in total, get their due. While Ms. Calvert sings comfortably in Patsy’s range and has that signature yodel down pat, she was just as authentic in songs that we associate with other performers, such as “San Antonio Rose” and “Love Sick Blues.” My personal

he was loved by everyone who knew him. Please come celebrate his life and the lives of so many others in our community who have lost their lives to suicide. We’ll remember our loved ones by a dove release by Dovely Moments. Arrive at 10 a.m. so that you can hold a dove and remember your loved one as you set it free. We’ll have a one-mile remembrance walk and release balloons in memory of our loved ones. There will be music and our town police have so freely volunteered their time to sit in our Dunk Tank. For our little ones there’s a moon bounce, rock painting and face painting. Alan Rasmussen, RRCS prevention

What: “Always…Patsy Cline” Where: Riverside Center For The Performing Arts, 95 Riverside Pkwy, Fredericksburg, Va Call: (540) 370-4300 or visit Playing through July 15 favorite, aside from the obvious ones, was “You Belong To Me.” Technical support for this show is solidly on track. Riverside’s scenic department gets credit for the set, a blameless re-creation of the standard design used for this kind of tribute show. With live band upstage, center downstage represents performance venues from honky-tonks to Arthur Godrey’s radio show to Grand Ole Opry. Stage right and left, nicely detailed, suggest interiors – Louise’s kitchen as well as a corner of the Houston ballroom Having seen versions of this script before, I’m led to believe that there is a certain flexibility built into the material. At heart it is a vehicle for reviving the songs of the great Cline while getting a cutaway view of her life through the firsthand experience of a friend and fan. There is no great emotional upheaval here, as the fact of her tragic death is as much a part of her story as her great voice. For that reason, when the news of her death comes, it is not overplayed. There is the appropriate somberness to be sure, but you can’t end a joyful evening on a somber note, and Ms Cline is resurrected to lead us in a footstomping rendition of “Bill Bailey, Won’t You Please Come Home.” Maggie Lawrence is a member of the American Theatre Critics Association. She is a retired English and drama teacher.

CHURCH Thankfulness, not complaints I was a teen working in my local, hometown, IGA (Independent Grocers Association) store. My responsibilities were mainly to bag groceries, stock shelves, and radiate a caring attitude of customer service. I also occasionally ran the cash register. One day as I was running the register, a mature man came forward with his items. He continually told me that he deserved a 10% discount because of his age, and that he possessed several coupons to reduce the cost of his purchases. Before I started checking out groceries, my manager/owner specifically relayed to me that I needed to subtract all coupons before adding any discounts. This is what the boss said, so that’s what I did.


Unfortunately, the shopper was not very pleased at all. He yelled. He complained. He berated me in front of the other customers and staff. I felt humiliated. Even at a young age I realized that this behavior was wrong and extremely unhealthy. Complaining does not build up, but it tears down. Unfortunately, there is not one of us who hasn’t inappropriately “lashed out” at another. Whether it’s the telemarketers who incessantly call us at the most inconvenient times, the food servers who we deem to be slow in service and attentiveness, a relentless family member or acquaintance who annoys us, or the insurance companies who refuse to pay our claims, we sometimes lose it. Out of frustration and a lack of feeling cared for, impatience can easily set into our hearts, as grumbling rolls off our tongues. Please don’t get me wrong. There are legitimate reasons why we need

grateful for every blessing that comes from God. Being thankful for others and the services which they provide. In I Thessalonians 5: 16-18 it says, “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” I once ministered to an extremely thankful person. She had spent her life being a rural mail carrier, and this individual did more than just deliver the mail. She actually checked upon, and had relationships with her aging clients. This woman had a servant’s heart. Eventually, as her eyesight was deteriorating, she was forced to retire. But there were no complaints. This believer in Jesus read her beloved books, and continually reached out to others. I was utterly amazed at her gratefulness, especially when someone did the smallest thing for her. As I memorialize her, I sometimes ➤ See Hales, Page 17

to “speak out.” When an injustice needs to be confronted, corruption revealed, or another human being freed from abuse, voices and actions are essential. But just wanting to have our own ways, desiring control, and taking out a “pound of flesh” on another is wrong, and far from Godlike. Holy Scripture has a lot to say about complaining. In Numbers 11:13 we’re told that the Hebrews were complaining about their misfortunes, and God acted decisively against their complaining. James 5:9 tells us, “Do not grumble against one another, brothers, so that you may not be judged; behold, the Judge is standing at the door.” And in Ephesians 4:29 it is written, “Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.” Instead of our first response being that of complaining, how about a response of thankfulness?

➤ Hales, from Page 16 wonder if her thankful attitude stemmed from her simply serving and loving others? As it is written in II Corinthians 9:11-12, “You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God. For the ministry of this service is not only supplying the needs of the saints but is also overflowing in many thanksgivings to God. “ I know. Sometimes it’s just too easy to complain, get it off our chests, desiring to feel that something could be changed or accomplished. But have we ever truly felt how the other person feels at the end of our

wrath? My dad used to always share with me that old antidote, “you win more bees with honey then you do with vinegar.” When we chose to complain rather than be thankful, I think it says so much more about us rather than the person receiving our unkindness.” Brad Hales is the pastor of Reformation Lutheran Church, Culpeper, Virginia.

National Cheese Day highlights growth In case you missed it, Monday was National Cheese Day. Shocking - you also thought it was everyday, right ? So how to celebrate and make this one “cheese” day special? For me, I travelled to New York’s Long Island - the Hamptons. Not just for cheese, but for a wedding anniversary celebration at the site of our Southampton nuptials. Indeed, for me, the Hamptons have long been associated with the good life. For many, the Hamptons means a proliferation of unattainable massive beachfront homes, fancy cars, models, movie stars and over the top parties. That’s all here, but there’s also another side with a welcoming “downhome” mentality, some amazing seafood, and yes, a cheese culture. Considering that the Dutch settled the Hamptons, it should not come as surprise. Something like watching Spring bulbs emerge after a long winter, cheese culture is blooming on Long Island. For instance, the Mecox Bay Dairy is a pioneering cheesemaking operation on the South Fork of Long Island. Similarly, there are a handful of dairy operations on the North Fork as well. At Mecox, the fourth generation farmers of the Ludlow family started Mecox Bay Dairy (Bridgehampton) in 2003, trading the farming of potatoes for milking

cows. Through my eyes, a walk through the Mecox Dairy operations was an observation of courage in action. Courage to change, courage to innovate. Cheesemaker Art Ludlow laughingly described his entry into cheese making as, “a slippery slope”, but one that he is not turning back from. Good thing. His confidence in cheesemaking led him to develop a cheese lineup that is diverse enough to be its own tasting board. Bloomy, washed, natural, cooked curd, blue and more are in their offerings of cheese. Like that diverse offering of cheese at Mecox, the Hampton’s retailers offer lots and lots of cheese, and I mean real cheese. Excellent (and well cared for) cheeses were found at IGA, Citarella, Stuart’s Seafood, Farmers Markets, and the wonderful Cavaniola’s Gourmet. In my experience, the ease of finding cheese here was something very different than what I have come to know in Virginia. What’s driving the change to a cheese culture is hard to say. Though not verified, I learned that New York consumes seven times more coffee than rest of the country. Combine that nugget with people who prefer their coffee black and their dairy in the form of cheese. Then, maybe, you have a root cause. Irregardless of the reason for the cheese, it’s here and plentiful in the Hamptons. Happy National Cheese Day, or simply, Happy Day with cheese.
