“Three Generations Serving You”

what’s cooking?

Chef Ika Zaken executive chef, Williamsburg Winery

By Ann M. EÀmetz Chef Ika Zaken has a straight-forward approach to his cuisine. “Delicious simplicity,” he said in a recent interview at the Williamsburg Winery. He provides his culinary expertise to the kitchens at Gabriel Archer Tavern and Café Provencal at Wedmore Place. His skill is in transforming the bounty from local gardens, farms and waterways into recipes that provide memorable, flavorful experiences. “There is always a wave of fashion in cooking, but at the end of the day, the average person wants to go back to a nice piece of fish or meat, with a good vegetable and a nice sauce,” Zaken said. “There is a tendency to mix too many ingredients in one dish. If you have a good product, you want to let it stand alone on the plate.” Zaken learned his craft in kitchens throughout the world, including his native Jerusalem, Israel, where he grew up cooking and eating elaborate meals within his family. His eye for knowing quality meats was honed working for the famous butcher, Iwo’s International Delicatessen in Jerusalem. At age 22 Zaken opened a butcher shop of his own. He has studied French cuisine in Paris, where he met his wife, Molly, a Williamsburg native. In 2002, he and Molly opened a restaurant in Antwerp, Belgium which featured Mediterranean, French and Moroccan cuisine. After several successful years, they sold the restaurant and moved stateside to raise their three children closer to family in Williamsburg. His position at the winery gives him the chance

to stretch his culinary muscles in the kitchens of both Gabriel Archer Tavern and Café Provencal. His philosophy is that the best ingredients make the best food. That’s why he works with local farmers and businesses to obtain what’s freshest. “I love to work with the locals because of the quality,” he said. “For instance, carrots may be a simple vegetable, but there is a big difference between a carrot bought from a large company, and one that was pulled out of the ground three days ago.” Zaken enjoys preparing fish and lauds our area for an abundance of fresh products from the Chesapeake Bay and regional rivers including grouper, monk fish and oysters. “We live next to the water,” he said. “We need to get what the water has.” Zaken’s passion for his job is apparent in his voice. He recalls a time in Europe when he decided to take a respite from the kitchen and pursue a job in digital printing. Although it was a good paying job, he was unhappy. “I was miserable,” he said. “I have to do something with my Photos by Ann M. EÀmetz hands, I have to create. There is adrenalin in cooking that is like nothing else.” He continues to vary the menus and offer dishes that showcase the freshest ingredients. “I write the general title of the dish, but will leave things open,” he said. “Maybe today I have baby beets to put on the dish, tomorrow, I may have something else. This makes it good for the customers, and good for the cooks. It is exciting and challenging.”

Positive results I cannot say enough good things about the effectiveness of advertising in the Williamsburg Magazine. This magazine is distributed so widely, via the newspaper, at businesses all over town, at rest stops, etc. If you are not advertising in the Williamsburg Magazine, you are missing a very crucial opportunity to reach those who visit and live in this community! The rates are very reasonable for what is offered and it is truly the most bang for your buck!

a great Ànd

By Ann M. EÀmetz The Velvet Shoestring on Second Street has hundreds of distinctive items for home and office. This month’s A Great Find is a classic Sligh desk. The piece has leather inlay and is designed in rich wood. A local person who was changing their décor brought the desk into the store, which is located on Second Street. “It is a beautiful piece,” said Betty Stephans, owner. “You could use it in a library, dining room or master bedroom. It never goes out of style.” It arrived at the store in January. The piece will be priced at $433.38 on April 14. Photo by Ann M. EÀmetz

Ruthie Mitchell, Blinds Galore

By Ann M. EÀmetz When you walk in the front door of Blinds Galore in Quarterpath Crossing, you will be greeted warmly by store owner Ruthie Mitchell. Mitchell, who with her husband, Woody, has been in business for 46 years, finds great satisfaction in helping people beautify their homes or offices with top-rate window treatments including plantation shutters, blinds and shades. “I love people,” Mitchell said recently. “I have been working in retail since I was 16 years old. I like to meet the different people who come to the store and talk to them about where they used to live, and why they have moved to Williamsburg. It is very interesting. You never know who is going to come through the door.” Mitchell’s family helps keep the business running smoothly. Woody 20


visits the homes, takes measurements and provides estimates. Son Roger and his wife Diane lead the installation process. Mitchell oversees the process from beginning to end, ensuring customer satisfaction. It’s that ability to work with customers that gives her the greatest joy. “When the customers come in they want to see what we have and I show them all the possibilities,” she said. “I work very closely with the customers.” In 2003, Mitchell was diagnosed with breast cancer. Although the challenges of facing the disease were daunting, she never allowed it to discourage her. “I took chemotherapy and radiation and still got up and came to

work,” she said. “It was better than staying home and crying, looking at four walls.” She credits her work at the store in helping her overcome the illness. She now enjoys good health and at age 73 has no intention of retiring. “I won’t retire, not at this point,” she said with a big smile. “If I am off from the store for even a day or two, I really miss it.”

Why We Were Voted #1 “I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Clint Payne, I was interested in purchasing a 2014 Silverado. I explained what I wanted and Clint took it from there, he was most professional in all aspects of his job. I walked out the door with a smile on my face. I have been buying new automobiles and trucks since 1967, and I rate this as my best experience to date.

“Good Service is sorely undervalued these days and great service is even more rare, every time I have been to Holiday I’ve received nothing but exceptional courtesy and service. Thanks so much you have a great team.”

“Lynne Clarkson… what a sweet person. Lynne’s humor takes all of the pain out of the payment process.”

“I want to commend the Holiday Service Department on a job well done. I was in Williamsburg for a family wedding when I had the misfortune of having car trouble. My misfortune turned into luck when I pulled up to your service counter and asked for help. Your wonderful master tech Joel came to the rescue; test drove the vehicle and had me up and running within 45 minutes of pulling through the door. We had an hour to spare thinks to the excellent service provided by your team.”

“Clint Payne should be truly recognized for his professionalism, he is an asset to your fine dealership.”

Kittens by the boodle By Ann M. EÀmetz

Is there anything cuter than a kitten? The adorable factor is high when it comes to kittens, and the Heritage Humane Society needs people to foster and to adopt the hundreds of baby animals that come to the shelter each spring. “Spring is a very busy time for Heritage Humane Society,” said Michael Rhodes, director of communications and outreach at Heritage Humane. “Beginning in April and running all the way through October, kittens continue to inundate the program.” The foster program kicks into high gear as homes take in hundreds of bottle-baby orphans and nursing kittens brought in with their mothers. Heritage Humane needs people to become part of the foster care network. Foster care coordinator Nicole Gonzalez can be reached at for those interested in helping. continued on page 31

Diversifying Art on the Square By Ann M. EÀmetz Those who attend the annual Art on the Square show in Merchants Square at the end of this month may notice a more eclectic mix of media. That’s because this year, for the first time, the organizers of the show sponsored by the Junior Woman’s Club of Williamsburg used a new online system to encourage artists from outside the area to apply for a spot in the show. What resulted was a host of new entries from artists from as far away as Pennsylvania. “A quarter of all the people who are showing this year are new to the event,” said Amy Haley, the show chair. “We are excited to have our returning artists as well, but this year

51st Annual Sunday, April 27, 2014 • 10 a.m.-5 p.m. • Rain or Shine Merchants Square, Williamsburg Over 170 artists on exhibit. Free & open to the public. Featured painting to be raffled at 4:30 p.m. Raffle tickets available at JWCW registration tent. 1/$2 or 3/$5 26


we were interested in reaching out to artists from further away. We are excited about the new talent that is coming.” Jurors Lanette McNeil, Michael Kirby, Kathy Hornsby and Terry Buntrock, pored over 215 entries last fall. They decided on the work of 173 to exhibit. The range of artists will encompass everything from jewelry to photography. Although the scope of the work available has diversified, Haley said there is emphasis in maintaining the tradition of the show. “One of the things the club has decided is not changing,” she said. “We want to maintain the focus as a fine arts show. We want to maintain the high quality of artists. We have had feedback from our artists about the importance of maintaining it as a fine arts show.” Proceeds generated by the event are used to award money to area high school students who will pursue fine arts education. This year the scholarship program has been named after longtime sponsor and resident artist, Richard DePaul and his wife, Janet. DePaul has created the show poster for years. His creation this year is a watercolor, “Summer at the Print Shop.” The show will be judged the day of the event by six area art experts. Cash prizes will be given. Haley is confident that those who attend the show will be impressed with what they see and hopes they will purchase artwork for their homes, offices or to give as gifts. The only variable? As with any outside event, it’s the weather. “Oh, but it is going to be a beautiful, sunny day,” she said with a laugh. Art on the Square will be held 10 a.m. - 5p.m., Sunday, April 27

continued from page 24 People looking to adopt animals can look for special promotions offered by Heritage Humane to encourage families or individuals to welcome a pet into their home. That includes the “Name Your Own Adoption Fee” program, which Rhodes said has worked well. ‘’It’s a win-win for everyone,” Rhodes said. “It works very well for us and very well for the community. People can definitely look forward to more of those promotions this year.” Once the first wave of kittens arrives, Rhodes said people can be on the lookout for specials. To get a scoop on promotions, like Heritage Humane Society on Facebook at hhswilliamsburg. Heritage Humane Society will again offer Animal Camp returns with a spring break camp April 7-11 for ages 5-13. There will also be four summer sessions. “Animal camp covers many topics,” Rhodes said. “Every day of camp is focused on a specific area of animal welfare.” For more information, call Heritage Humane Society at 221-0150 or visit

April See & Do • Historic Jamestowne re-enacts the wedding of Pocahontas and John Rolfe on Saturday, April 5 — the 400th anniversary of the ceremony — on the exact spot where it happened in 1614. Performances are at 10:30 a.m., 1 and 3:30 p.m. • Revolutionary City Returns — Colonial Williamsburg’s flagship daily street theater presentation returns for its ninth season, re-enacting real events of the American Revolution in the locations they occurred. Guests can follow the stories of colonial unrest as loyal subjects turn against their king and must choose between monarchy and self-government. But the challenges don’t end there, as both free and enslaved cope with the effects of war profiteering, rampant inflation and other hardships while they ponder their loyalties and what the future holds. • RevQuest: The Old Enemy. The highly popular, interactive game series returns! Participants act as agents of the Committee for Secret Correspondence as they play the alternate reality game. Gamers use their set of orders, maps and cipher books to break codes and hunt for hidden clues as they pursue their mission to secure America’s best ally in the American Revolution’s fight for independence. • The Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg – “A Rich and Varied Culture: The Material World of the Early South” is a groundbreaking new exhibition examining the material culture of the early South from the 17th century through 1840 — the first of its kind to include a dozen categories of media and represent three geographic regions of the South. Some 350 objects on view are drawn from the Colonial Williamsburg collections, plus those of 10 other institutions and 14 private collections. Many of the items in the exhibi-

tion are on public view for the first time in a museum setting. At the DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum, one of the Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg. • Religion Month 2014: Revolutions in Faith – During the month of April, Colonial Williamsburg explores the role of religion in making the new American nation. The ideas surrounding the War for Independence revolutionized the relationship between faith and government. They abolished the state’s connection with any church and permitted the free exercise of religion. A variety of events explore these “revolutions in faith” and examine how the ideas and events that created America also transformed religion. Programming takes place at various sites in Colonial Williamsburg’s Revolutionary City. • Spy Craft – Save the Revolution! Museum visitors learn about real secret codes and ciphers used by George Washington and other leaders during the Revolution and can try “cracking the code” using the spy techniques learned in the program. Ages eight and older. Thursdays in April 4 – 5 p.m. in the Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg. Programs and exhibitions at The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation’s DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum are supported by the DeWitt Wallace Endowment Fund. • Wine, Wit and Wisdom – “Searching for the Perfect Pinot” 2- 4 p.m. April 12, Williamsburg Lodge. Wine lovers will enjoy this unrehearsed presentation of Pinot Noir – Burgundy’s most celebrated grape. $45.50 per person, including tax and gratuity. Open to the public

For more information, call 1-800-HISTORY or visit the Colonial Williamsburg Regional Visitor Center, Greenhow Lumber House Ticket Office or Merchants Square Ticket Office.

Compassionate and caring Dr. Anna Stankiewicz, Sentara Urgent Care

Photo by Ann M. EÀmetz

By Ann M. EÀmetz

“I love to get to know the person behind every patient,” said Dr. Anna Stankiewicz of Sentara Urgent Care in New Town. “I want to understand their needs and thereby exceed their expectations of excellent medical care.” Stankiewicz is the newest member of the Sentara Urgent Care team, recently joining the practice following her position as a family medicine physician with Valley Medical Group in New Jersey. Since arriving in Williamsburg at the beginning of the year, she has been impressed with the people she has met.

“They have welcomed me with open arms,” she said in a recent interview at the practice located on New Town Avenue. “The smiles you get from people are meant. They are real here.” Stankiewicz has a background in family and urgent care practices that translated well. “Leaving my family medicine practice, I knew that I would miss the close physician and patient relationship,” she said. “Surprisingly, I am finding that that physician-patient relationship even filters into the urgent care setting.” Urgent care centers have the ability to offer hours that are convenient for people who may otherwise have difficulty getting to the doctor. As people’s lives become busier and need for health care is ever present, urgent care fills the need. “In a way, I see myself as a first-responder when a patient does not know where to go,” she said. “I can treat them urgently and direct them to the proper follow up and care.” The center can address a variety of medical issues using services on site, and it offers longer hours than most medical offices. “We have extended hours and we have immediate access to lab, x-ray, CAT scan and ultrasound services which may not be available in a traditional doctor’s office,” she said. Stankiewicz completed her third and fourth year of medical school in Louisiana. During that time, she gained an affinity for Southern living. However, she also missed the opportunities for entertainment and culture of the big city. That’s why she thinks our area is an ideal melding. “I believe Williamsburg is the perfect mix of southern hospitality combined with northern influence,” she said. “It is a quaint town with a cosmopolitan influence.” She looks forward to each day, each patient, offering them compassionate, thorough care. “One of the nurses I used to work with once said to me, ‘You leave every patient room smiling,’” Stankiewicz said. “That’s true. That’s how you know that you love your job.” WILLIAMSBURG MAGAZINE / APRIL 2014

Bowling green By Ann M. EÀmetz There is a lawn bowling green located in the back of the Williamsburg Inn that’s home to the Williamsburg Lawn Bowling Club. Members regularly participate in competitions and demonstrate the sport to Colonial Williamsburg guests and the general public. The sport has a long and colorful history, with early documentation of it played here in the early 1700s. The local green was constructed in the late1960s and

has been the home to local bowlers since. The green is open every day, 3-6 p.m., from April 1 to Nov 1. Each day a member of the club serves as a green keeper, helping anyone interested in trying the game. Free lessons are given on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The club holds open houses to introduce the sport and there are tournaments held that spectators can watch. For more information, visit

Colonial Heritage Community Foundation Members of the Colonial Heritage Community Foundation have long had the goal of helping area seniors stay in their homes as long as possible. Through the years, various options to provide services to older adults and their caregivers has been in the forefront of the foundation’s mission. Helping seniors participate in programs to maintain their health and to provide needed respite for those who care for them has been a primary focus. The foundation’s long-term mission to bring an adult day center to our area has continued with the recent implementation of a pilot program for adult day services, “Innovative Senior Champions Program.” The program has found support through the foundation, New Zion Baptist Church and Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church. Financially, Langley Federal Credit Union has made a $10,000 donation to get the program up and running. That amount has been matched by CHCF. Members of the foundation and the churches signed an agreement to develop and implement the program.

Schedule a tour today!

“I think that the program is great for the community,” said Rev. Rob Whitehead, pastor of New Zion Baptist Church. “We are excited to be a part of it with our community partners.” The challenge facing our area as the population ages provided the impetus behind the program’s development. According to a report by the Colonial Heritage Community Foundation, our area is in the midst of a rapid growth of an older adult population. Statistics are cited from the Administration on Aging, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, regarding our area’s demographic. The local senior population is currently at 26 percent, compared with the state average of 12 percent and the national average of 13 percent. Further, research cited by the U.S. Census indicates that by 2030, one in three greater Williamsburg residents will be at least 60 years old. continued on page 49

Love Life at Heritage Commons Ann Bowe, our Executive Director, can tell you there are many reasons to love life at Heritage Commons. But for animal lovers, being able to keep your pet when you move here is the best reason of all. It’s why Williamsburg’s pet-loving seniors love life here. Stop by or call and schedule a tour today!

continued from page 44 That’s what makes the need for affordable adult day care so imperative. “We wanted to address some of the issues that would help seniors stay in their homes as long as possible,” said Dick Boyden, of the CHCF. “And a lot of times that is dependent on the caregiver and the caregiver’s stress.” The pilot program is considered the first step in providing tangible relief for caregivers and a place for social interaction for seniors. Isolation among seniors can be a contributing factor in cognitive decline. “There are a lot of seniors in the home who do not have social engagement,” said Rev. James Nickols, pastor of Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church. “We all need social engagement. It is a good thing to get seniors involved with other seniors.” “Isolation can become more acute,” Boyden added. The program will run at New Zion Baptist and Our Saviour’s Lutheran for several more weeks. The ultimate goal is to expand the program to other churches, offering services five days per week throughout the year. The decision for Nickols and his church to be involved had personal and community-wide focus. Nickols provides care for his 88-year old mother, and also observes the aging of the local population. “I looked at my own personal need and also the needs of the community,” Nickols said. “We have a large hall at the church and so when I got the e-mail about this program, it was a no-brainer.”

Volunteers for the program are being assembled by project director Nancy Rivolta to help in the overall implementation and in specific planned activities. Participants take part in the following programs: Memories in the Making—The program offers seniors with an effective means of creative expression through art. It is presented by Marjorie Hilkert. Music therapy—The program is effective with those with challenges in physical, psychological, cognitive or social functioning. It is presented by Becky Watson, founder and owner of Music for Wellness. Therapeutic gardening—The program is designed to provide a positive outlet for emotional and creative wellbeing. It is presented by members of the Colonial Heritage Garden Club and local Master Gardeners. Nutrition and wellness—Programs addressing brain fitness, yoga, healthy eating, fall prevention and heart health can be offered. The program is presented by Bernice Perkins. When the program wraps, there will be an event to display all the work that participants created during the pilot program. The hope will be to get more churches involved and more support for the continuation of the program. Surveys will be given and data collected so that going forward, improvements and modifications can be made, dependent on need. “We feel very confident in getting this off the ground and that success can be achieved,” Boyden said. More—Call Boyden at 345-6974, Nikols at 561-3093 or Whitehead at 258-0491.

Emily’s Donuts finds quick success By Ann M. EÀmetz The store has only been open for a couple months, but already Emily’s Donuts has found a loyal, growing clientele. The shop, owned by Debbie Sullivan-Yates and her husband H. James Yates, offers handmade donuts, gourmet coffee and various pot pies. So far, the response has been positive.

“We are all off and running,” H. James Yates said in a recent interview at the store. “We aren’t trying to be in competition with anyone. We are just trying to bake the best donut around.” Yates, who owned a fire equipment business in Hampton for 25 years, said he decided to open the store after thinking about it for a couple of years.

subject with his wife Debbie, who was a bit skeptical of his plans. “She said, ‘You never baked a donut in your life,’” he said with a laugh. “So I told her I would learn. She said, ‘Have at it.’” He became proficient at the technique used in the store from a master baker and began the process of creating the quintessential donut. The location is the former Short Stop Deli, which was gutted for the new shop. The emphasis was on the kitchen, providing enough room for the cooks to work. “The people working in my kitchen have created unbelievable donuts,” he said. “I turned the people in the back loose to create any kind of donut they wanted. “ What they have come up with are recipes running the gamut from the most popular, Boston Cream and blueberry to peanut butter and jelly donuts. The staff bakes all night, beginning at 11 a.m., getting ready for the 5:30 a.m. opening. “We are in the baking business,” he said. “That is what we do.” The name of the business is close to his heart. “Debbie and I had fights at the kitchen table as to what to name the place,” he said with a laugh. “Then our daughter Emily called from college one night and said, ‘Why don’t you just name it Emily’s?’ And she hung up. And that is what we decided.” The store also offers savory choices. There are chicken, vegetable and seafood pot pies available, with the potential to add meat pies in the future. Whether it is a donut or a pie, Yates assures customers that the end product will satisfy. “All the donuts are handmade,” he emphasized. “Everything we put into our donuts is the best available to us. I spent two years researching how to do this, and I think we have the best of the best. There is a process you have to do to make a quality donut. You can’t short cut it. ” WILLIAMSBURG MAGAZINE / APRIL 2014

Andy Jacobs Principal, Matoaka Elementary School By Ann M. EÀmetz How long have you been at your job?— I have been principal at Matoaka for seven years. Previously principal at Matthew Whaley for 10 years, assistant principal at Magruder Elementary for two years and a teacher at Rawls Byrd Elementary for 10 years. How many students are at Matoaka: 750 What about staff? There are approximately 90 faculty and staff.

and practices regarding effective instruction and assessment, and the infusion of technology to support instruction and student learning are perhaps the biggest changes. What impact do you think social media has on education? Social media and technology can certainly be in “competition” with traditional teaching practices, however a skillful educator can find ways to use such media and technology to support and enhance their daily instruction, make their teaching relevant and current.

What do you like best about your job? I love working with people, particularly “little people.”

What is the greatest challenge for public education? Continuing to find effective ways to reach all learners and keeping pace with the expectations of our fast paced society’s expectations.

What is your biggest challenge—Keeping up with the ever-changing landscape of public education.

Do you have any future goals? – I will continue working with children until retirement calls my name.

What has changed most in your tenure? Public education has changed a great deal in my 29 years. Research 58
