A NEW STORY FROM A FAMILIAR FACE. Early in my career, I had a life-changing encounter with a customer. I made the sale, but not a client for life. It became clear to me that strong, enduring relationships create more than a successful business. They create a family. Today, the Country Chevrolet Family of Dealerships gives you an experience beyond buying cars. When you do business with Country Chevrolet, you’re choosing to be respected and highly valued — for life.

There’s a new Chief in town. A highly motivated and focused law enforcement professional, new Haymarket Police Chief Eric Noble strives for perseverance on the job and off. An avid outdoorsman and adventurer, Noble spends his down time getting up and out of the house. Noble thrives on the physical and mental challenges of running marathons and ultramarathons, an activity he didn’t know he enjoyed until 2009 when training at the FBI Academy. Besides running in some of his favorite locations such as the Antietam Battlefield, Noble also enjoys skiing, riding his motorcycle, kayaking with his wife, Lee Ann, and spending time with his two daughters who “make him the most proud of anything in life.” Also “a bit of a neat-freak” and someone who enjoys “experimenting with chili recipes,” Noble may not be Adrian Monk or the next Guy Fieri, but he plans on bringing his own unique focus, organization, and flavor to the Haymarket Police Department. 6

Noble’s early career didn’t immediately develop into law enforcement, but he remembers at 16 years old being impressed by a close cousin who lived with his family in Charlottesville while attending the Police Academy and working as a state trooper. After majoring in civil engineering at Virginia Tech and graduating with a degree in business from the University of Virginia, Noble worked for one year in the stock market — and learned that he hated it. After his stint in the stock

market, Noble became an insurance investigator for a private company in Manassas, and found his interest in law enforcement becoming stronger. Finally attending the academy, becoming a patrol deputy, and eventually retiring as a senior Commander, Noble served in law enforcement for a total of 27 years. But retirement to Noble meant missing law

enforcement as well as the opportunity to serve the community and be a part of a team. A few opportunities arose, but Noble was “picky” about choosing the position that would take him out of retirement. Noble found himself drawn to the Haymarket area because of his relationships there and the residents’ strong love for the town as well as the small department atmosphere and ability to get involved and interact with the community. As Chief of the Haymarket Police Department, Noble hopes to bring a fresh start to the department. He credits Interim Chief Greg Smith with coming into a very difficult position and developing the momentum for the department to move forward in a positive direction. Noble hopes his belief that a Chief’s position is not just a 40-hour work week and his personal level of expectation for the job will help to maintain the forward momentum and “do justice for the position.” “To make change happen, you have to create a sense of urgency,” says Noble. One of the major changes

Noble hopes to make is to attain accreditation for the Haymarket Police Department. It’s a significant endeavor, he explains, that requires maintaining hundreds of standards, rewriting policies, and developing proof of adherence to those policies. He also seeks to develop a strategic plan for the

“TO MAKE CHANGE HAPPEN, YOU HAVE TO CREATE A SENSE OF URGENCY” ERIC NOBLE department’s present and future that incorporates and includes the changing environment of a small town that is expanding so rapidly. Most of all, Noble desires for the people of Haymarket to feel safe in

their community. This may be due to the part of his law enforcement career that had the most impact on him — auto crashes. He says something he will never forget is witnessing his first fatal crash scene and explaining to a parent why and how this child lost her life in a crash. What struck him the most in these situations was that many motorists see auto crashes as an acceptable part of the northern Virginia landscape. One of his goals is to prevent fatalities and reduce crashes in Haymarket by understanding why and where accidents happen and then take steps to keep the community safer. Chief Noble welcomes interaction with the community. He also solicits questions and comments from people who live and work in Haymarket so that he can understand the concerns and better work to resolve issues. He says that if it’s important to the people who live here, it’s important to the police department.

HOLIDAY GRIEF by Esther Boykin

With the holiday season upon us, our thoughts often turn to family and friends. Whether our gatherings are full of joy and laughter or frustration and passive-aggression, for most of us, the holidays mean coming together. But what about those who are alone? What about those who have lost someone special? What do the holidays really mean when you’re grieving? As a marriage and family therapist, it is often my job to empathize and share the right bit of wisdom or insight to help people deal with the greatest challenges in their life. Often I’m successful, to some degree or another, in offering my clients a sense of hope in their personal moment of hopelessness. And yet, when grief is the pain, I can findmyselfatalossforwords. Loss and bereavement are universal experiences and yet for most of us, myself included, they can be hard emotions to connect with. As Joan Didion said in her memoir, A Year of Magical Thinking, “grief turns out to be a place none of us know until we reach it.” It is impossible to ever truly know the pain that each person experiences after a loved one has died. It is a highly personal journey that does not really conform to rules or steps as some books and experts would suggest. There is sadness, anger, denial, bargaining, and even some form of acceptance, but I have 8

found in both my professional and personal life that these emotions don’t fit neatly into some step-by-step process. Each person must navigate their own path through grief. And just as there is no cookie-cutter plan to “get over” the loss of a loved one, there is no simple plan to support someone through that process. There are some guideposts you can use, however. MEET THEM WHERE THEY ARE. If we agree that each person’s experience of grief is different, then it makes sense to accept them wherever they are emotionally. The holiday season brings up memories and family rituals for all of us. Allow the person who has experienced the loss to set the tone and agenda for holiday celebrations, or lack thereof. For some individuals, the need to maintain certain holiday rituals or activities can seem as important as eating and sleeping. For others, the mere mention of Christmas dinner or a New Year’s Eve party is enough to send them back to bed. Either way, lend your support to their plans and try not to let your expectations or even what you know about who they are (or more accurately who they used to be) color your perception of what’s “right” for them. SEEK YOUR OWN SUPPORT. Regardless of how well you knew the deceased, when someone you love loses someone they love, you both experience grief. It’s important to recognize that grief is one of the loneliest emotions that we experience as human beings. In an instant our lives change and our hearts experience a missing piece. But the world around us continues on. Because in many respects life does keep going as if nothing has changed, it can be overwhelming to deal with grief, however secondary, on our own. This is the time to implement the “airplane rule”— put on your oxygen mask before you try to put anyone else’s on. Talk with friends and family, join a support group, talk with clergy, or find a therapist. Having someone to talk to, especially someone with no emotional ties to the situation, validates your experience and fills you up emotionally, allowing you to then be a support to someone else. HOLD THE HOPE, BUT DON’T FORCE THEM TO BELIEVE. The death of a loved one can be like suddenly finding yourself at the bottom of steep canyon. You can’t imagine that

you will ever climb out. The sadness, anger, and loneliness can be so powerful that the idea of one day enjoying your life again can seem almost laughable. The truth is that the human spirit is amazingly resilient. People overcome profound loss and trauma every day. Often, the work I do with bereaved clients is what I call “holding the hope.” I am the keeper of hopeful and joyful thoughts until they are ready to own them again. As a friend or loved one, you can also hold the hope. Don’t argue when they say they’ll never eat pumpkin pie again because that was their brother’s favorite Thanksgiving treat. Don’t offer a blind date when they are emphatically proclaiming they will never find love again after the loss of a spouse. Save the encouraging words for when they are ready to hear it. In the meantime, just hang on to the hope and encouragement while you hold their hand and introduce them to the virtues of apple pie this Thanksgiving. HONOR THEIR GRIEF BUT DON’T BE AFRAID TO ENCOURAGE THEM TO SEEK HELP. Each individual has their own unique process and timeframe for grieving. There is no magical number of months you are allowed to cry or be sad or even angry. As a general rule, I encourage anyone concerned about a family member or friend’s emotional health to ask themselves one question — is the behavior I am worrying about interfering with their ability to function in daily life? This is often a useful litmus test to help you decide if professional intervention is needed. The American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy and the American Psychological Association offer resources and therapist directories. Sometimes the holiday season (or a birthday or anniversary) can act as a trigger. Talk openly about your concerns and the possible benefits of therapy not only to address problematic behavior or overwhelming emotions, but also as a tool to learn coping skills for future difficult times. And remember, a therapist is an excellent resource for the entire grieving process regardless of the length or severity of anxiety or depressive symptoms. You don’t have to have a clinical problem to talk to a therapist. In fact, sometimes the best time to go is when you or your loved one still feels they can manage.

Claudia Reyes, of Casero Creations, puts the finishing touches on the empanadas, which are cooked using Bolivian family recipes.

An exciting new business concept has made its way from DC out to the suburbs. Frontier Kitchen, a “business incubator for the culinary industry,” has opened its doors in the QBE building on Washington Street in Haymarket. “Boundless Dreams. Limitless Impact” reads the tagline, and Frontier Kitchen lives up to it. People who have long been aspiring to open their own businesses are now living out their dreams, all because of a husband and wife team who brought the right players together to create this unique place. The concept for Frontier Kitchen came about when Grant Brown was ready to make a career change, he says. Working as a ‘computer guy,’ Grant explains says he was tired of not having an outlet for the creative 12

side of his personality. While his original idea to open a bakery was a retirement dream, his wife Brenda urged him to make it a more current plan. Grant quit his job, attended pastry school, and began selling his award-winning cakes, pies, brownies, cupcakes, and other baked goods at farmers markets. However, when looking for space to grow their business, Brenda and Grant noticed the expense to build a commercial kitchen, especially when starting a business from the ground up, or finding a rental kitchen that would fit their purpose. The idea for a shared commercial kitchen space, as well as a community for others in the same situation, was born. With Brenda’s experience in capacity building and Grant’s inspiration for launching

Granted Artisan Bakery, the concept couldn’t have been a better marriage of their passions and skills. Needing a partner with experience in the pastry business and a knowledge and understanding of commercial kitchens, Brenda brought Cassity Jones on board to become the Chief Operating Officer. With over 14 years of experience as a pastry chef in high-end restaurants and the founder and CEO of his own pastry business, Xocolata, Jones “wants to see people make it.” He has a vision and a goal for Frontier Kitchen to create opportunities for others looking to leave their jobs and pursue their passion by opening their own culinary business. He also sees Frontier Kitchen as more than just a rental space, realizing that the Haymarket Lifestyle

members can learn so much from one another and share that knowledge to help each other succeed. Those looking to start their own business have become members of Frontier Kitchen in order to use the facility. The kitchen includes culinary and catering stations, complete with a fully-vented five burner stove, a conventional oven, a double-deck convection oven, prep tables, and a fryer. The bakery equipment includes a commercial mixer, induction burners, and baking racks. Custom work stations can be created to suit individual culinary needs. Frontier Kitchen is available 24/7 for their members so they can cook any time they’re able. The membership fees however, don’t pay for just the rental of the kitchen. They also pay for the many other services the company provides, such as “storage, certifications, staffing for deliveries, setting up networks for distribution and support, supplier discounts, professional expertise,” and many other administrative services. These services make it easier for those just starting to sell their products to gain knowledge and to have the support they need for success. Frontier Kitchen has contributed to the success of the mother-daughter owned Casero Creations. Claudia and Silvana Reyes began their business by cooking out of their homes and selling their dishes at farmers markets. The demand for their delicious family recipe empanadas and sweet, savory salteñas grew mostly by word-of-mouth. The customers came back again


and again for more products, which was difficult for the pair to produce in their home. After being introduced to Frontier Kitchen, they were able to expand and bake more products at a faster rate. Although they eventually dream of having a storefront, Frontier Kitchen makes it possible for Claudia and Silvana to bring their Bolivian recipes and traditions to more people in and around the area. Pies + Petals owner Lissy Tropea’s interest in becoming a business owner began when she realized baking was a form of therapy for herself. While her company began online with door-to-door deliveries, she partnered with her mother to create a unique package of homemade pies and floral designs that customers can purchase or send to family and friends. She credits Frontier Kitchen with giving her the ability to leave her job and run the company full time by offering a place to bake more pies. Some of Tropea’s pie flavors include: salted caramel apple, chocolate caramel pecan, maple pumpkin brulee, bourbon sweet potato, as well as her flavorful tarts like marbled pumpkin gingersnap, chocolate, and brown sugar among others. In addition to the Haymarket location, Frontier Kitchen has also opened a facility in Lorton to serve even more culinary entrepreneurs. Those interested in learning more can visit frontierkitchen. org or call 571-494-0897. Frontier Kitchen could very well be the place where dreams become reality for even more people in northern Virginia who have a passion for food.

FOREST BATHING A visit to the Conway Robinson Memorial State Forest by Andreas Keller

“Forest bathing” in Japan means a short and leisurely visit to a forest for relaxation and recreation as part of a good lifestyle. To enjoy forest bathing nearby we only have to visit one of our beautifully-cared-for state forests, the Conway Robinson Memorial State Forest located near Manassas National Battlefield Park on Route 29 just east of Heathcote Boulevard. Named after a distinguished 19thcentury Virginian lawyer, historian, and author who argued approximately 100 cases before the U.S. Supreme Court, the Conway Robinson State Forest serves as a forest research and educational site and is available from dawn to dusk for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. A plaque at the trailhead speaks of the astonishing achievements and contributions of Conway Robinson. At the entrance of the 444-acre forest of mostly pines and old-growth hardwoods, is the Conway Robinson pavilion constructed in the 1930s 16

by the Civilian Conservation Corp, which also planted the surrounding “Penny Pines” — loblollies bought by the public as a war-relief fundraiser during World War II. There is still a plaque dedicated by the Daughters of the American Revolution which commemorates this program. This forest park features 5.1 miles of wellmaintained hiking trails suitable for all ages. Walking on these gentle trails offers not only a welcome reprieve from all the surrounding hustle and bustle of northern Virginia, but also a little taste of history as well. The observant hiker can see an unfinished railroad bed of the Manassas Gap Railroad planned in 1850 with work halted in 1858 due to lack of funding. During the Second Battle of Manassas, Stonewall Jackson’s forces used the railroad bed as cover and successfully withstood attacks from Union forces, giving Robert E. Lee time to move his men in position and launch his attack which

resulted in a Confederate victory. Walking the Conway Robinson is especially rewarding by using the QR Trail. This interactive trail is the result of the Virginia LEAF (Link to Education About Forests) partnership program. LEAF provides educational opportunities by combining outdoor experiences with heritage tourism. QR codes, which are coordinated

Haymarket Lifestyle

with a downloaded app, are posted throughout the Conway Robinson State Forest. To learn more about this program, you can log on to manaleaf. weebly.com. Of special interest to all dog lovers, dogs are permitted on the trail. However, for those who want to ride horses or a mountain bike, a State Forest Use Permit is needed. The Conway Robinson State Forest requires the Leave No Trace outdoor ethic regarding trash. Since the Conway Robinson forest is a working forest managed for more than just recreational purposes, one can find trees cut down or thinned which promotes the health of the

forest and its wildlife. When the property was given to the State in 1938, it was half forested and half open land. Every 10 years, the Virginia Department of Forestry reevaluates its forests and creates new management plans for the next decade. These plans are designed to help improve, maintain, and enhance various aspects of the forest, such as wildlife habitat, natural beauty, timber income, etc. The State Forests of Virginia are self-supporting and receive no taxpayer funding. Operating funds are generated from the sale of forest products and up to 25 percent of the revenue received from the sale

of forest products is returned to the counties in which the forests are located. To encourage people to get out in nature, walk, and indeed forest bathe, the Warrenton Hiking Club “Boots ’n Beer” is offering a free Hiking Clinic the third Saturday of every month. Everyone is welcome! Our next Hiking Clinic is offered at the Conway Robinson Pavilion on November 21, 2015 at 10 am. Interested parties can sign up at the Meetup site for Boots ’n Beer. You can log on at meetup.com/ Boots-n-Beer-A-Drinking-Club-witha-Hiking-Problem.

10 Tips for Holiday Baking by Kim Newman More and more scientific studies are showing that baking can actually help cure depression and anxiety. Many therapists say that cooking and baking classes can help people by soothing stress and building self-esteem. Focusing the mind on following a recipe can also help curtail negative thinking. Who knew? Well, my mom knew, and her mom knew, and because of them, I know, too! It all started with my brother and I going to Grandma’s house and heading straight to our favorite cabinet in the kitchen. We’d open up the plastic lid on an old repurposed coffee can and found the treasure. Somehow that old can was always magically filled with homemade cookies. Snickerdoodles were our favorite! For breakfast, Grandma always had some amazing coffee kuchen (traditional German coffee cake) on hand. I remember sitting on the counter watching her take out a little teacup to measure the sugar and flour knowing I wanted to do what Grandma did—spread joy!

Some of the fondest memories of my childhood are of baking at home with my mom. Whether baking an apple pie for a Thanksgiving feast or delicious Christmas cookies to share with our family and friends, holiday baking quickly became my favorite activity. Carrying on this tradition with my own children has given me joy beyond compare. Remembering how their faces lit up with excitement when they got to mix the batter and lick the spoon still puts a smile on my face. Even though they’re older now, I still get the occasional, “Hey mom, can we bake some cookies?” I love it! I so look forward to carrying on our baking tradition and spreading that same joy to my future grandkids. I cannot guarantee that baking holiday cookies can cure depression, but I do know this—sharing those delightful treats can spread joy and a smile to anyone they touch. So if you’re feeling down or stressed-out, grab a wooden spoon, follow these tips, and whip up a batch of your favorites. And don’t forget to share!

10 Baking Tips 1. Weigh your sugar and flour for accurate measurements. Baking is a science! 2. Always bring ingredients to room temperature. And make sure they’re quality. 3. Check for freshness. Don’t use an ingredient if it has been in your pantry for ten years! 4. Don’t overbeat your dough after you add flour. No one likes tough cookies. 5. Use a scoop and light colored cookie sheets. A scoop creates uniformity and light colored sheets prevent dark bottoms.

6. Cool cookie sheets between batches. This prevents dough from spreading into thin cookies. 7. Chill sugar cookie shapes before baking. This helps cookies maintain their shape. 8. Make a double batch and freeze the extra. Just pop in the oven later for a yummy, quick treat! 9. Check your cookies and rotate if baking unevenly. Ovens bake differently. No one likes overbaked cookies. 10. Bake a test batch of two or three cookies. This allows the opportunity to fix dough if it’s not correct. Add a couple tablespoons of milk if cookies are puffy and dry, or add flour if too thin.


1-1/2 tsp cream of tartar 1 tsp baking soda 1/4 tsp salt

Mix first four ingredients thoroughly. Stir in dry ingredients.

Drop spoonfuls of dough and roll into balls in mixture of 2 tbsp sugar and 2 tsp cinnamon. Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes.

Woman Owned Business






Kelsy Dominick spends a lazy Saturday night on the couch bingewatching Scandal and Shark Tank like everyone else. There’s one show Dominick watched recently, however, to which none of us can relate. In September, Kelsy Dominick, only 24-years-old, watched as her fashion designs walked the runway at New York Couture Fashion Week for the first time. Dominick comes from a long line of textile entrepreneurs. Dominick’s mother is an accomplished seamstress and her grandmother owned and operated an upholstery business. 22

Destined to work with fabrics, Dominick learned to sew at an early age. What started out as making a simple pillowcase turned into creating doll clothes and then morphed into designing her own prom dress. “I couldn’t shake it off,” Dominick said. A Virginia Tech graduate with a double major in apparel resource management and international studies, Dominick officially started her business in college when her parents paid the $25 to purchase her an LLC. After receiving a lot of interest from students to make custom gowns — usually from

students she met in the tailor shop on campus where she worked — Dominick started competing in college fashion competitions and making costumes for the university’s cultural shows. Although freshmen aren’t allowed to enter the competitions, Dominick managed to get into the show her first year and even though she didn’t win, she “learned how to gauge what to do for the next year,” Dominick said. She won the competition every year after that until graduation. The winning prize was often the opportunity to show at a boutique or store in town and Dominick Haymarket Lifestyle

Dominick remembered thinking. “What if I’m not good enough?” Almost on a whim she applied anyway, thinking, “if you don’t try, you’re never going to get it.” Dominick had to apply one year in advance with information on previous shows she had participated in and photos of her designs. On the very last day of the invitation period, Dominick got a call. She was in. “I was definitely shocked,” Dominick said. “I applied thinking I wasn’t going to get in.” With six months to prepare for Fashion Week, Dominick finished in only three. But she then decided to completely scratch the emerald green she’d chosen as the main feature of the collection. With three months left, she designed and made an entirely new collection. “My hands almost fell off a couple of times,” Dominick said. “I’ll know better next year.” Dominick described the feeling she had standing backstage and watching her models walk down the runway as, “So exciting, but nerve-racking at the same time. I was concentrating really hard.” Dominick said she was concentrating on her models not falling. Although Dominick was so overwhelmed with photos and interviews that she didn’t have time to see or meet many other designers, she did make one acquaintance that could mean big things to come. On the first day of the show, Dimitri Chkheidze, Director of New York Fashion Life, came by her collection, looked through her garments and said, “So, we get you to Paris, huh?”

WHAT SHE’S ALL ABOUT started to gain some exposure. Post graduation, Dominick continued to gain notoriety by participating in city fashion shows such as Roanoke Fashion Week and Blacksburg Fashion Week. She also interned for Launch My Line finalist and fashion designer Galina Sobelev in Los Angeles. After applying to the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York and being denied because of her “lack of seamstress skills,” Dominick was trepidatious to apply for New York Fashion week. “What if I still am that,” November 2015

Dominick credits a large portion of her design aesthetic to her own mixed heritage as well as the influence that her many travels around the world have had on her. Of Italian and African-American descent, Dominick was bit by the travel bug early through missions trips that she took with her church as teen. Since those days, Dominick has traveled to Dubai, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Vietnam, Singapore, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Mexico, and this month she’s headed to Haiti. Wherever she travels, designing is never far from Dominick’s mind. These days, her packing list always includes a

Dominick’s advice to a young person interested in fashion design?

“Get started now. There’s no substitute for experience. The earlier you get started, the easier it will be.” vintage Singer sewing machine that she bought online for $150. The 100-yearold crank-machine was originally sold as a toy for children and only weighs a few pounds. Not just for pleasure, traveling allows Dominick to source 100% of her fabrics. Dominick is passionate about culturally-inspired gowns using textiles from that region. Gowns from her collection that showed at Fashion Week include fabrics from Tel Aviv, Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia — all that she personally found, saw, and touched in person. A core element to Dominick’s design is her faith. Dominick described choosing her company name while in college, wanting to find something that uses her surname in the original Italian. When she discovered that DiDomenico means “Day of God,” she knew it was a perfect fit. She also decided to name the collection she showed at Fashion Week, “Virtuous” — after the virtuous woman described in Proverbs 31 of the bible. In speaking about how her faith influences her designs, Dominick said, “Everything we do, or any type of talent we have, we should do for Him. So this I don’t think is an exclusion. Even though it might be more challenging based on what other people are doing with very scandalous looking dresses that pretty much show everything, I think that’s where you find that corner of creativity because you are forced to think outside the box about things that matter, like the construction or the textiles or how someone really feels when they put the garment on. You don’t have to do 23

Dominick describes her ready-to-wear line as catering to a woman in her 20’s and 30’s who know’s what she’s looking for — classic pieces that will transcend time and stay in her closet. “I want to dress you on your best day,” Dominick said. Dominick, herself, has gone through many fashion phases including an emo phase and a vibrant, MAC makeup phase. But she feels that she’s finally landed on a more refined look, “I truly know what I’m shopping for now.” Dominick believes in investing in quality pieces that will last the trends and the wear — except for shoes. “It’s so bad. I bought four pairs the other day. It’s gotten really bad.” She’s also crazyobsessed with vintage-inspired capes this year. Thanks Olivia Pope.

something so in-your-face that it’s not tasteful anymore.” And Dominick is definitely passionate about textiles and construction, especially when it comes to custom wear. She talked about the size and shape differences among women as well as her own struggle, at a size 00, to find something that fits her frame and she feels great wearing. No matter the size or the shape, “I’m very passionate about designing something that reflects the best part of you. Bringing out the best,” Dominick said. “I want to be the number-one place women can go online for a custom dress,” she added. When asked about who she designs for, Dominick replied, “I want to say everyone. The woman who looks for the best in everyone. The best in herself.” While Dominick has seen her custom orders expanding, especially bridal requests, she also has an entire ready-to-wear line on her website. 24

In thinking about what’s to come for DiDomenico in the next year, Dominick has some pretty grand ideas. She hopes to start participating in international fashion shows (Paris and Milan, eek!), opening an independent studio space where she can consult with clients, and dressing more red carpet celebrities. “I think it’s possible in a year’s time,” she stated confidently.

Dominick already has a few celebrity clients. She designed a stunning evening gown for Miss Russia, Jen Sidorova, to wear in the Face of Beauty International competition in Taiwan in October, and she will be dressing Eric Benet and Manuela Testolini for their next red carpet event. In five years, Dominick hopes to see the brand running more on it’s own, allowing more time for her to focus on designing. Right now, she’s not only a designer but a webmaster, accountant, photo editor, marketing director, and more. But when discussing the hard work and sacrifice it will take to pursue building her business and the mission of her brand, Dominick said, “You want your business to be good so that it can represent Him in a really good light, not the other way around. I think that’s how you can go to work and be happy every day, too.” WEBSITE DiDomenicoDesign.com FACEBOOK @ DiDomenicoDesign TWITTER @ DiDomenico_Desi INSTAGRAM @ DiDomenico_Design #SewingTheWorld

Saving Our Children:

Training the Community to be First Responders by Frank Rachal

In 2013, injury and violence were the leading causes of death for Americans between ages one and 44. That is more than those who died from illness and infectious disease combined. With this statistic in mind, professional first responders have worked to improve the survivability of traumatic incidents by focusing on three steps: early recognition, early treatment, and quick access to a medical facility. Unfortunately, the implementation of these efforts has coincided with a three-fold increase in mass shootings as well as the continued threat of terrorism like the Boston Marathon Bombing and of natural disasters like the tornado in Joplin, Missouri, and Hurricane Irene in New Jersey. While first responders have received extensive and increased training in dealing with these types of events, there are limited avenues available for Americans that want to be prepared to respond on their own. Any first responder will tell you that in an emergency, seconds matter. But from the time an emergency occurs to the time a first responder is on the scene, takes on average 11 minutes – and in some cities, it can take as long as an hour. In an emergency, and especially when facing trauma and injury, those minutes mean the difference between life and death. Addressing the realities of this “new normal,� Spartan Medical and Consulting, a Manassas-based team, has taken it upon themselves to provide lifesaving training to teachers, pastors, and the general public. In September, Spartan taught an inaugural group of educators at Haymarket Baptist Preschool how to respond in the event of an emergency to prevent the loss of life in their classrooms. The Saving Our Children program provides necessary equipment and empowers those who care for our children on a daily basis to continue to do so in emergency situations. The longer a trauma goes untreated, the more life-threatening it becomes. Simple, but effective, 26

treatments like the use of a tourniquet or hemostatic gauze unequivocally save lives. It makes sense to get this equipment and training as close to an injured child as possible. The training program is a one-day, five-hour class that consists of both lectures and didactics training. Because of the simplistic nature of the program, the training consists of only the “when and how” of patient treatment and use of the medical equipment. Topics covered are bleeding control, chest wound treatment, wound packing, pressure bandages, tourniquet usage, basic airway management, and scene management. Laurie Frasz, Director of Haymarket Baptist Preschool said, “In my more than 25 years as an educator, I’ve never appreciated the need for a program like this as much as I do now. Spartan’s team helped our staff feel empowered to continue to care for our children, even in times of crisis. While we certainly hope never to have to use this training, it feels good knowing how to react in these situations.” Spartan Medical and Consulting developed the Saving Our Children program as well as the companion Safe Workplace and Everywhere Safe programs to address the growing need for immediate response to mass-casualty incidents. As two-part initiatives, these programs provide participating schools, companies, and public spaces with a compact package of medical equipment and the necessary training to enable anyone to respond using simple, lifesaving skills. While it is important to provide immediate, lifesaving care in emergency situations, the priority in every situation is first and foremost to protect yourself. As every first responder knows — you can’t help someone else if you’re also injured. In an emergency, individuals should remove themselves from the direct threat, move into an indirectthreat area, treat further, and finally prepare for evacuation. Dr. E. Reed Smith, an emergency physician and recognized expert on response to active killing and masscasualty events, says, “The need in our society for training and empowering civilian non-medical First Care Providers to quickly address life-threatening injury in intentional mass casualty is now more than ever. Through operational programs such as the Rescue Task Force or 3-Echo, we have addressed the traditional delay in public safety response in getting to the patient’s side. However, there still remains a time gap from point of wounding to arrival and deployment of professional medical first response. Empowering and training civilians in simple stabilizing medical procedures has been clearly shown to decrease the delay from time of wounding to first medical intervention; additionally, courses such as this improve both personal and community resiliency. We in the professional response

community have known for a long time that bystanders will be present, bystanders are willing to act, and bystanders can and will save lives. Citizens should seek out First Care Provider training as part of a prepared and resilient society.” For more information on bringing the Save Our Children training to your school, church, or business, contact Spartan Medical and Consulting CEO, Frank Rachal at frank@spartanmac.com.

Participants at the inaugural Saving our Children program hosted at Haymarket Baptist Preschool learn lifesaving techniques such as packing a wound and pressure dressings.

Frank Rachal is the president of Spartan Medical and Consulting. Prior to the founding of Spartan Medical, Frank was the Chief Operating Officer of Ark Medical LLC and Director of Programs for Regulus Global out of Virginia Beach, VA. A veteran of the U.S. Navy, he still continues to serve as a Firefighter Paramedic with the Arlington County Fire Department. Rachal has also served as a member of the Hazardous Material Regional Response Team, National Medical Response Team - National Capital Region, Rescue Task Force cadre. Frank was one of the first responders at the Pentagon on 9/11 and participated during hurricane Katrina rescue efforts. He remains as an adjunct faculty instructor for The George Washington University school of medicine in Washington D.C. Rachal has also been awarded the medal of valor. 28

Part 1, published in October, provided the background of the Peace Jubilee marking the 50th anniversary of the First Battle of Manassas in July 1911, and the story of Lt. George Carr Round. His vision of reunion and reconciliation was the basis of the Peace Jubilee. The Jubilee of Peace began on Sunday, July 2, with a Peace Service conducted at the Manassas Baptist Church by Dr. Benjamin Trueblood, Secretary of the American Peace Society. The topic of his sermon was “Universal Peace.” The next event was the Blowing of the Jubilee Trumpet with musical presentations under the direction of Mrs. B. T. H. Hodge, held on July 10 at Conner Hall. It featured the chorus of 48 “Peace Jubilee Maidens” dressed in white, with a sash bearing the name of each state of the Union. Miss May Leachman represented Virginia. The Maidens were accompanied by the Manassas Orchestra, and special selections included “United,” the Manassas National Jubilee Anthem composed by Mary Speed Mercer, and Rudyard Kipling’s “Recessional.” Also sung were “America,” “Flag of the Free,” and “Auld Lang Syne.” The concluding song was the Civil War-era favorite, “Tenting Tonight on the Old Camp Ground.” Dr. Henry M, Clarkson of Haymarket, known as “The Poet of the Confederacy,” read a poem entitled “The Southern Flag,” written especially for the Jubilee. Col. John A. Joyce, a Union veteran “and poet of national renown,” joined him. The Jubilee continued on Sunday, July 16, with the National Jubilee Sermon on the lawn of the Prince William County Courthouse conducted by the Rev. H. M. Couden, chaplain of the U.S. House of Representatives. It was noted that Rev. Couden, a Union veteran, had been wounded in the war, and left blind. Early on July 18, Capt. James E. Herrell, CSA, who took part in the fight nearly 50 years before, conducted a visit to 30

Blackburn’s Ford, where the opening shots of the First Battle of Manassas were fired. Later that afternoon was the dedication of the Groveton Pavilion on the battlefield, built by the Manassas Chapter of the UDC. Participating in the event were the Fort Myer Cavalry, which gave a drill, and the Fort Myer Band, which performed for the occasion. Lt. Round gave the address, describing the battle, and W.A. Buckley, of Bushy Park near Catharpin, recited his poem, “The Blue and the Gray.” Two troops of cavalry from Fort Myer and a detachment of the Virginia militia camped on the battlefield that night. With more veterans arriving, on July 19, Dr. R. C. Buck of Milford Mills conducted a tour of the Bristow Battlefield, and on July 20, there was a visit to the contested area at Groveton. Later that day, Gen. Julian S. Carr of Durham, N.C, conducted a seminar on “The Blue and Gray and Their Sons” at Eastern College at Manassas.

REUNION OF THE BLUE AND GRAY The climax of the Jubilee was on Friday, July 21, 1911. Activities began with a mass reunion of Civil War veterans on Henry Hill, the site of great suffering and carnage 50 years to the day after the battle. Chief orator at the gathering was Virginia Gov. William H. Mann, who with his staff arrived on Henry Hill escorted by the men of the Warrenton Rifles and Front Royal Guard. Others speaking included Col. Edmund Berkeley, former commander of the 8th Virginia Volunteers; Gen. John E. Gilman, commander-in-chief of the (Union) Grand Army of the Republic; and Virginia Sen. Thomas S. Martin. The veterans were presented with a souvenir badge by the Hon. Adrin Larkin of New York, on behalf of Col. Robert Means Thompson. At noon, the veterans—about 400 former Confederates and 200 former Union troops—fell into two parallel lines and Haymarket Lifestyle

passed in review, each clasping the hand of his former enemy as he passed. A “Love Feast” basket-luncheon prepared by the Manassas Chapter of the UDC was served at 1 p.m., and the veterans brought back to town by 3 p.m. They witnessed streets along the way “…brilliantly decorated with Stars and Stripes and the Confederate Stars and Bars,” according to the Manassas Democrat. Their final destination was the Prince William County Courthouse, where the speakers’ platform had been draped with bunting, and the backdrop consisting of a huge U.S. flag. Approximately 10,000 people, including 1,000 veterans, crowded onto the courthouse lawn and the streets around it. The original plan called for U.S. Pres. William Howard Taft to arrive in Manassas by 4 p.m. to greet his hosts and Jubilee participants, and to speak at 4:30 p.m. A careful protocol had been worked out: the presidential party would be met by two troops of cavalry on Main Street at the Presbyterian Church, and escorted to the south entrance of the courthouse, where the Reception Committee awaited them. As the President approached the reviewing stand, the chorus of 48 Maidens representing the states would symbolically join hands, and sing the Manassas Jubilee of Peace Anthem. A specific seating plan for the speakers’ platform was worked out, as well as the order of introductions: Jubilee CoChairman Westwood Hutchison would introduce Rep. Carlin, who would then introduce Gov. Mann, who would introduce Pres. Taft. But that afternoon, the weather played a major, disruptive role. ORDEAL OF THE PRESIDENT’S PARTY The presidential motorcade 32

left Washington, D.C. at 12:30 p.m. Accompanying the President were his secretary, C.D. Hilles, White House Military Aide Maj. Archibald W. J. Butt; Sen. Martin, U.S. Rep. Carlin, and Secret Service officers James Sloan and R. L. Jervis. “About five miles out of Fairfax the clouds began to gather, and we did some swift and dangerous running to reach the town before the storm would break,” wrote Maj. Butt in a letter to his sister-in-law, Clara Butt. The storm broke just as they reached the old courthouse in Fairfax, and they stayed briefly to have lunch at the home of State Senator Thornton. The sun returned at 2:45 p.m., and they headed toward Manassas, figuring it would take one hour to get there. “We turned into the old Manassas Pike, and were bumped and jolted over the worst road I have ever seen, for about five miles, when coming to the top of a hill, we saw a motor car midstream filled with a lot of frantic people,” wrote Maj. Butt. “It was Senator Brandegee’s party. We stopped at the water’s edge, and the party yelled to us not to attempt to cross.” However, Pres. Taft wanted to proceed. At that point, Maj. Butt took off his boots and waded into the stream to check the depth of the water, and told Runnle, the President’s chauffer, to come ahead. “We knew that the pilot light (of the steampowered car) would go out, but it was only a question if we could get up enough steam to last to get over.” The plan worked, but two miles further down the road, they encountered a flooded Rocky Run. Sensing that it was getting too deep, the President ordered the gasolinepowered Secret Service car to attempt the crossing first. It stalled, and was left there. “I was told there was a round-about way of about ten miles whereby we might reach Centerville,” wrote Maj. Butt.

They had to cross the first stream again, and found it had risen another foot. Chauffer Runnle again pressed forward, but none of the other cars made it through. “We were due at Manassas at quarter past four; we ought to have been there by four, but we did not reach Manassas until a quarter of six,” wrote Maj. Butt. Strangely, not a drop of rain had fallen in Manassas that day. They were met at the edge of town by a troop of cavalry from Fort Myer under Capt. Dean, “…and through clouds of dust were escorted to the place of speaking,” wrote Maj. Butt. A MOVING PRESENTATION Following the introductions, the President opened his remarks by stating, “It is a great pleasure for me to be here today. We ordinarily do not enjoy those things we get without effort—and it has been some effort for me to get here today. We came down very slowly… much more slowly than some of the senators and representatives who came down here 50 years ago, and then went back to Washington.” By all accounts, the wait was worth it, as the President’s remarks about the sacrifice of the soldiers on both sides during the Civil War left few dry eyes in the crowd. Moving to current events, Pres. Taft announced efforts by international leaders to ensure that there would be no more wars, and that treaties were under study that could solve problems between nations without ever resorting to war. Jubilee exercises concluded with Pres. Taft’s remarks and a song by the chorus. Leaving the reviewing stand, he spent about a half-hour shaking hands with the veterans before departing. The audience remained standing while the President left the courthouse grounds, passing between a double line of infantry. “While I remained to look after Haymarket Lifestyle

the President, Hilles and Carlin went in search of a railroad man to see what could be done about getting to Washington by train,” wrote Maj. Butt. “They succeeded in finding a railroad magnate with a private car, which was put at the disposal of the President, and was to start back by seven, or a little after.” Apparently, due to the lateness of the President’s arrival, he was not able to make the dinner at Annaburg.

AFTERMATH For a day or two, the Jubilee Committee and the citizens of Manassas enjoyed the overwhelming success of their efforts, certain that the goals of respect and reconciliation had been achieved, and in great measure. Unfortunately, on July 23, 1911, The Washington Post published two “special dispatches,” one allegedly from a writer in Erie, Pa., and the other from someone in Manassas, which were highly critical of the Jubilee, and in the words of Lt. Round, were “false and fabricated,” and the work of a “sore-head.” While the content of the actual “dispatches” was not published in the Manassas newspaper, the Erie dispatch – meant to offend Southerners – stated that members of the Grand Army of the Republic were deeply offended by the display of Confederate flags in Manassas. Likewise, the Manassas dispatch alleged that Union veterans at Henry Hill were denied food and water by the women serving the luncheon there on Friday, July 21 – obviously an affront to Northerners. Jubilee Members analyzed both complaints, and established the fact that there were far more U.S. flags displayed than the Confederate Stars and Bars, and that the effort was clearly to celebrate the “Re-United States,” not the period of division. As for the complaint about food and water, it was noted that water was not in short supply at Henry Hill until 2 p.m., when most of the veterans had left to go to town, and that there were at least a dozen leftover food baskets, proof that no one went away hungry. This fact was backed up by members of the 15th U.S. Cavalry who were at Henry Hill, and made it “…emphatically and indignantly clear that they had no cause for complaint of their treatment by anyone.” Members of the Jubilee Committee believed that the dispatches “…were the work of a disgruntled reporter who was denied the privilege of working his camera at a point objectionably near the platform from which Pres. Taft was speaking, and left Manassas with the avowed intention of scotching the Jubilee management and the people of Manassas,” according to the July 27, 1911 edition of the Democrat. The committee immediately contacted the Post, which refused to publish their side of the story. In an open letter to the Post, Lt. Round stated that he could prove the falsity of the dispatches, and demanded “… amends and apologies.” It is not known if this was ever done. In any event, the memories of the Jubilee of Peace were good, and a permanent memorial to the event was unveiled on the courthouse lawn on Sept. 30, 1915. It consisted of a tablet of white bronze on a block of white granite flanked by two cannons, and two 400-lb. Anchors and chains sent from the New York Navy Yard by thenAssistant Secretary of the Navy, Franklin D. Roosevelt. Haymarket Lifestyle


Let those flags be furled forever, Just as when we laid them down. Emblems of a vain endeavor – Duty done without its crown. Covered as they were with glory, Let them moulder into dust. Emblematic of their story, Emblematic of our trust. Let those brave who charged upon them, Men, who met us in the fight. They, who by their valor won them, Let them keep them – theirs by right. Let them keep them, torn and tattered, Tokens of the tears they cost. Symbols of a people scattered, Emblems of the cause they lost. Emblems of a people dashing, Down the tide of Time to die. Meteor-like in splendor flashing. Flaming ‘cross the Southern sky! When before did any nation, Born of only hopes and fears, Freely offer such libation, Pouring out its blood and tears? Not old Rome’s heroic ages, Not e’en Greece’s grandest days, Not the world’s historic pages, Furnish such a theme for praise. Classic Greece yet tells the deeds of Heroes of her land and sea: Wondering, all the world now reads of Raphael Semmes and Robert Lee.

The inscription on the plaque reads: In Commemoration of the MANASSAS NATIONAL JUBILEE OF PEACE The First Instance in History Where Survivors of a Great Battle Met Fifty Years After And Exchanged Friendly Greetings At the Place of Actual Combat Here on July 21, 1911, the Closing Scene Was Enacted THE TABLEAU OF THE REUNITED STATES The President, the Governor of Virginia And Forty-Eight Maidens in White Took Part With 1,000 Veterans of the Blue and the Gray and 10,000 Citizens of THE NEW AMERICA November 2015

On July 19, 1986, a celebration marking the 75th Anniversary of the Manassas National Jubilee of Peace was held, organized by the Manassas Historical and Museum Committees. Douglas K. Harvey, Curator of the Manassas City Museum, compiled a fine keepsake booklet. Obviously, no Civil War veterans were present, except in spirit, but what made this celebration special were the seven Peace Jubilee Maidens of 1911 who returned as honored guests: Ruth Round Houff, of Alexandria; Margaret Temple Hopkins, Manassas; Marie Leachman Janney, Fredericksburg; Marion Lewis Lewis, Orange; Mary Larkin McKibbin, Dayton, Ohio; Eleanor Lewis Moffett, The Plains; and Esther Dogan Terrell, Purcellville.

Never marched men into battle, Braver men with firmer tread, Spite of all the roar and rattle, Spite of dying and the dead. Rest, ye weary warriors, from your labors, Rest your banners worn to rags, Sheathed forever are your sabers, Furled forever be your flags. Though in vain our brave endeavor, Though our skies be overcast, Appomattox meant “forever,” No repining for the past. Symbols of a grand oblation Keep those flags forever furled, Emblems of a vanished nation, Once the wonder of the world.

by Rebekah Grier This isn’t the first time Jake Miller has been a street urchin, and it probably won’t be the last. After playing the character of Tiny Tim in a production at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg last holiday season, Jake, age 9, recently landed the lead role of Oliver in the musical production Oliver! at the Arena Stage in Washington, D.C. After originally sharing the role with another actor, Jake will now act in all 75 showings full-time. Despite his young age and even younger experience, this pint-sized platinum is proving to have some big talent. Jake, a Fauquier County native, has been interested in singing from a very young age and taking vocal lessons for several years. After doing some modeling and getting three callbacks for Broadway shows in New York City, Jake’s parents, Jim and Jennifer Miller, started to realize this could be more than just a hobby. Jake landed his first role at Busch Gardens and was then chosen out of an open casting call in New York to sing “America the Beautiful” at the US Open tennis tournament in September. He was hired in April to play Oliver, and is well on his way to becoming a successful stage performer. A week into rehearsals for Oliver!, Jake met with us to discuss the show. When asked how rehearsals were going, Jake answered quickly and with a little bounce, “Very well.” 36

For Jake, rehearsals mean very full weeks. Tuesday through Friday he leaves directly after school to drive into D.C. for rehearsal from 3pm to 6pm. On Saturday and Sunday, Jake must be at rehearsal all day from 10am to 6pm. When asked if after a week of this schedule he was tired, Jake replied, “Not really, it was actually fun!” With that kind of schedule, how does homework get done? “I do it. I don’t care how long it takes, I will finish it. If I don’t do my homework, I just can’t do anything else until I finish it.” About his feelings walking into the first day of rehearsal, Jake said without hesitation, “I was nervicited. I was nervous and excited at the same time.” But he loved meeting the other actors for the first time, especially the other children closer to his age. “It was good getting to know people so you know how they’re going to be and if you’re going to like them or not.” Jake’s last role was the only child among all adults. “There was no one to really interact with, I was by myself.” So far, Jake’s favorite person on the cast is 38

Eleasha Gamble, playing Nancy. “She was the first one I ever met in the cast, so I’ve had more experience on stage with her.” Jake’s father, Jim Miller, described how Oliver! is so much different than other productions where Jake has been cast. Rehearsals include incrementally breaking down each aspect and studying it individually. There’s dialect class, fight scene choreography, dance choreography, music, and table work. Sometimes they even throw in a little improv just to challenge actors on what their character would do in any given situation. Jake even has his own “childwrangler” while at rehearsals to keep him on task. Table work periods, where the cast reads a scene and then discusses it, is a part of rehearsal that Jake particularly enjoys. “I like it because it actually helps you know it better, get what the character’s purposes are,” Jake said. Jake also likes practicing through the musical score, ‘Where is Love’ being his favorite song. In the story, Jake’s character, Oliver, begins singing ‘Where

“I was

nervicited. I was nervous and excited at the same


is Love’ after getting into a fight with a servant of the undertaker and being thrown into the cellar of a funeral parlour. Although he hadn’t practiced it yet, Jake is also excited about performing ‘Food, Glorious Food,” one song in the score that has a very strong nod to STOMP. Jake’s vocal coach, Elysabeth Muscat, described Jake’s vocals as one of his strongest qualities. She said he has a strong voice capable of a lot of volume. Muscat also said, “He’s good with corrections. He understands and Haymarket Lifestyle

implements. He doesn’t take correction personally. He learns quickly and rarely makes the same mistake twice.” Out of all the elements he must learn — the script, the songs, the choreography — “I think choreography is the hardest because I’ve never actually danced. Never,” Jake said. And “there’s a lot of dancing,” Jake said about Oliver!, “A lot.” Despite the choreography possibly posing a challenge, Jake described rehearsals as overall going “In the middle. It’s going good, but other times it gets harder. It just depends.” Even if he does make mistakes, Jake said that Director Molly Smith encourages the cast to “Make mistakes. And make them big and juicy so she can hear them!” Smith said of Jake, “To lead a play like this, the actor playing Oliver needs to have a big presence and bring the audience along with him throughout the entire play. Jake is proving in rehearsals he’s up to the task. He is a talented young man and brings such intelligence and simplicity to the role. He’s a very bright actor at such a young age.” When asked what he will miss most about the show when it ends in January, Jake said, “The people that are there. The cast members. How much they’ve taught me.” Jake agreed that he will probably stay friends with several of the other cast members. “And I think it will be good because they can tell other people about me, and they can call me in for an audition. And if I know people, I can tell them about them (Oliver! cast members) and they can call them (Oliver! cast members) in for an audition.” But Jake is incredibly excited about opening night for Oliver! and all his family and friends who’ll be there. According to Jake, it might even include the whole third grade class of P.B. Smith Elementary School in Warrenton where he’s a student. Colette Palermo, Jake’s manager, said she sees Broadway as the next step for Jake. “He has had many Broadway auditions and I believe this experience will give him even more confidence and experience to nail a Broadway role.” When asked if he’s ready now to do other large productions, Jake’s simple response, “Yeah. Pretty much.” Photo Credit: Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater

Living It

Honoring Our

VETERANS by Louis Dominguez


There are more than 800,000 military veterans living in Virginia. Their ages range from twenty-years-old to ninetysix-years-old and they are all U.S. Armed Forces Veterans. Many are suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), while others were seriously wounded and are facing a long and painful recovery. Some lost a limb or two fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. Most of these are young men. In addition, tens of thousands are afflicted with all manner of diseases and conditions that resulted from exposure to Agent Orange in Vietnam. There are also many disabled veterans from the war in Korea and some from World War II as well as veterans from smaller wars like the Panama invasion and other covert operations like those in Central America. Millions of Americans have served in the U.S. Army. Most are foot soldiers that have fought in all the United States’ wars around the world — and have suffered the most casualties. U.S. Army veterans include Special Forces, paratroopers, and other specialized units. The majority of living veterans are from the U.S. Army. Combatants or not, they served with great courage and distinction. Other courageous veterans include those that fight from the sky — members of the U.S. Air Force. They fly dangerous air strikes in the heat of battle to support ground troops and destroy enemy installations like ammo and fuel depots. They also transport troops and supplies to the front lines. They are heroes. And who can forget the contributions of the U.S. Navy. They operate and fight on and from a variety of vessels such as destroyers and aircraft carriers. And then, there are the hidden heroes that man the submarine fleet. In recent years, the Navy has also been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan for disarming roadside bombs with specialized EOD teams (explosive ordnance disposal). The U.S. Coast Guard is another less-talked-about group of sea-fighters that keep contraband out of America. Many Coast Guard veterans have also served in war zones around the world. Finally, there is the elite fighting force that has been serving with great courage and distinction since the Revolutionary War — the U.S. Marines. For more than 200 years, the Marines have been at the front of every battle that America has fought. Marines survivors from these wars have earned the respect and admiration of every Haymarket Lifestyle

American for their service to our nation. Veterans, veterans all. Whether volunteers or drafted, whether combatants or support troops, they all served our nation with distinction. Mothers, fathers, wives, husbands, sisters, brothers, sons, and daughters also served. They worked hard at home to produce armaments, uniforms, medical supplies, vehicles, tanks, aircraft, ships, and other vital supplies such as Meals Ready to Eat. Their contributions to the preservation of freedom are legendary and unique. Veterans did not serve alone, there are thousands of volunteers that have helped stateside and abroad. Volunteers such as the Red Cross, women that baked cookies and cakes, children that sent greeting cards with loving messages, Chaplains in the front lines, the faith community at home that offered spiritual guidance and support, the spouses and families that took on extra responsibilities at home, and so many others that made veterans feel loved and not forgotten. In addition to the volunteers, we cannot forget the doctors, dental surgeons, nurses, physical and occupational therapists, and many other health care professionals that do so much to care for veterans. Sadly, today there are thousands of homeless veterans and many others who have not been able to adjust to civilian life. Many have not been able to find employment and others are not receiving the medical care they need. Veterans Day on November 11 is a good time to honor our veterans and volunteers and thank them for the sacrifices they made to keep this nation free. America is

still a beacon of freedom in the world thanks to our servicemen and servicewomen. Living veterans today have served in near and far battlegrounds — World War II in Europe and the Pacific, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Iraq and Afghanistan invasions, and many other theaters of operation such as the Dominican Republic, the Panamanian invasion, and other fields of battle in Central America. There are many ways to celebrate Veterans Day. Speak with a veteran and thank them for keeping America safe and free. Assist a homeless veteran find shelter and rehabilitation. Train a veteran so he or she can find gainful employment. Make the workplace a welcoming environment. Help those who are ill get the health care that they need. Hire a veteran. Organize a veteran community group. Sadly, some veterans were not given the welcome that they deserved. Fortunately, this has started to change and the treatment of veterans upon their return has dramatically improved. Many local and national businesses contribute to making the lives of returning veterans and their families better. It is wonderful to see entire communities come together. Finally, let us not forget the veterans that have yet to come home to their families. So, on Veterans Day this year, raise the American flag as high as you can, attend a parade and wave at veterans. Speak with your children about veterans and tell them what they have done for America. Go to your church and say a prayer for the many veterans that are still hospitalized and have yet to come home. Pray for their recovery. May God Bless America’s veterans and their families.

Louis Ginesi Dominguez is a U.S. Army veteran. He also served as volunteer in the Virginia State Guard (now the VADF) for 21 years. He writes opinions and other commentaries in various newspapers and magazines. He resides in Warrenton with his wife, Maria. November 2015

About five years ago, I wasn’t happy with the job I had — I wasn’t learning and growing. With the encouragement of my family, we decided that this was the right thing to do for our future.

Starting my own company allowed me to focus on the relationships with my clients. I now have the time to genuinely care about the couples, families, and companies I work with. No longer are they numbers to fill a sales quota. I feel like I get to go on a little journey with each client. I am extremely blessed and lucky! How does your business serve the HaymarketGainesville community? I work out of my home office but I really feel like Gainesville and Haymarket are my business “home-base.” In the event industry, especially the wedding business, I feel that many people are unaware of the great professionals, venues, and services that our area has to offer. I serve the community by being a great source of referral and advocacy for the professionals in our community. I love being able to recommend great people that live or work right here to my clients. Please share one of the greatest moments you’ve experienced in your business. While I offer event planning services for many kinds of events, both corporate and social, I focus on weddings. Every time I help a bride down the aisle, after working for months with she and her fiance to plan a perfect day, I get a sense of relief and happiness. It is a huge source of gratification for me. I still tear up just a little at almost every wedding ceremony, even after being a part of hundreds of weddings over many years. Have you had an experience with your business that you wish you could redo differently? I don’t know that I have one single experience that I wish I could do differently. But I do relive every event, every conversation over in my head to see what I could have done better or more efficiently. It’s about constantly learning and striving to be a better professional. November 2015

What are the top 3 business tips & tricks you can offer other business owners & professionals? 1. Someone will always do it better than you. Accept that, and stop comparing your business to that of your neighbor. 2. Network! Networking is an invaluable tool. I started my business not knowing anyone in northern Virginia. I didn’t have a built-in network of contacts. My business and any successes have come from networking and building relationships. It has made all the difference. 3. Thank those that help you. And thank them sincerely. How have you been involved with HGBA? I started attending meetings about eighteen months ago and have tried to be an active member. Recently, I joined the board and now hope to help HGBA to continue to grow and build our community presence. For you, what is the primary benefit of being an HGBA member? I really enjoy the sense of community. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live? That’s tough. Germany or Italy. If you could have a superpower, what would it be, and why? I have to pay bills today, so I think I would love to make money! What is your favorite take-out food? I love Chinese. And there’s a place I know that makes ridiculously good Chorizo Tacos. I love to bring them home and settle down to watch a movie. HGBA Member since: 2013 Phone: (703) 398-7617 Email: johanna@simplicityeventsonline.com Web: www.simplicityeventsonline.com

Aspen Dale

Winery at the Barn

by Steve Oviatt “What do you serve at home? We probably have a wine for that.” That’s the philosophy of Aspen Dale Winery at the Barn in Delaplane. With a rich historic heritage, the name Aspen Dale can be dated back to county maps as old as 1914. Since the winery’s founding in 2009 by Shay McNeal-Poulin, Aspen Dale has focused on wines that go with food you eat every day at home. But when health problems forced McNeal-Poulin to sell only three years later in 2012, Larry and Kelly Carr purchased the winery. The Carrs had no previous winemaking experience, but “we just drank a lot. So this seemed like a more economical way to do it,” Kelly Carr said. The Carrs have continued the tradition of pairing Aspen Dale wine with “foods from home” by working with local farmers to provide samples of various foods to accompany a wine tasting. The tasting room in Delaplane is housed in a beautiful old barn restored to exude a rustic, industrial charm complete with a spiral staircase leading to an attic loft space reminiscent of Little Women. Spicy food lovers will like Mary Madeleine’s Rosé, a fruity and sweet wine paired with 46

cheddar cheese at the tasting. This is the base for the popular Maria’s Sangria, which is available by the bottle. The rosé is also a good picnic wine, as well as Sarah’s Chapeau, which is paired with dried apricot. Islington is paired with a green Sage Derby cheese and goes well with vegetable stir-fry, barbequed pork and grilled fish. Red wine lovers will be surprised by Bridgetown Red, a Pinot-weight Bordeaux blend that is served with a dried cherry. Kelly Carr recommends this with a mushroom pizza. Burger and steak lovers Top left: Larry and Kelly Carr, owners of Aspen Dale Winery. will enjoy the Parris Country Top right: Visitors Jasmine Hill and Amber Gunnoe enjoy a Blend, which is paired with a tasting at Aspen Dale. mild pheasant sausage during the tasting.
