There is a lot of activity in Warrenton this April and our publication is an indicator of all that action. Local businesses are working harder than ever to bring you the best Warrenton has to offer. Take a long, leisurely look inside and you will see what I mean. We finally are bringing you a column I have envisioned about for many months profiling several women I originally dubbed Phenomenal Fauquier Females. Anne Hall was partially right. She said there are probably 5,000 other women in the County like her. While I agree we could have chosen dozens of others to profile, there is only one Anne Hall. The concept for the article started with her, a woman that I have admired for over 20 years. We should all try to be more like her. Everything she does is done with enthusiasm and class. Laurie Enright is a single mom, business owner, and a warrior who has championed numerous causes in the past several years along with sister, Kitty. They use their business as a means of doing good in Warrenton and around the world. Laurie is an enigma. She has been on the fronts in places like Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan and recently delivered supplies to Haiti. Yet, her face does not tell this story. Her eyes are soft, her Irish smile wide. Laurie loves to discuss how we can next make a difference. Jill Vogel is a dynamo. I do not know how she does it but Jill can switch from being a senator to a business owner, super mom and good friend in an instant. Or, somehow, do all of the above simultaneously. Jill can make you laugh and has a great sense of humor. However, when she is in front of an audience talking about pressing issues, you can tell she has done her homework and comes prepared with her ‘game’ face on. Linda Reid has a heart as big as anyone’s does. She is patient, determined. Linda has worked with several other volunteers to bring us to the verge of having the area’s first boundless playground, a facility accessible to children of all abilities. Faced with the daunting task of raising $300,000 to construct the project, Linda has never wavered as her committee has secured some 70% of the needed funds. I first spoke with Samantha Casey to determine if there was a story about her going from Highland School student to Miss Virginia and maybe the next Miss USA. However, after meeting her, I became aware that was not the important story. This young woman has a great head on her shoulders and is already serving worldwide causes. She uses her stage to get her message out about saving exploited children, preventing breast cancer or keeping students safe. An exceptional student, Samantha shows leadership qualities usually not honed by people twice her age. There is a commonality among these women. These women are leaders in our community that balance all aspects of their life in a remarkable fashion. Each possesses a wide smile that will warm a room instantly. We have something to learn from each of them about how we live and how we serve. Their stories are inspirational. Best, Tony Tedeschi, Publisher

Writer’s Note Anita L. Sherman

Inspired to write


hen Tony asked me to write an article for his Warrenton Lifestyle magazine, I was pleased. While the majority of my time is vested in putting out a weekly newspaper for Times Community, I enjoy occasional forays into freelancing.

I was intrigued with Tony’s idea of spotlighting several women who he has observed making a difference in the community. He thought their stories would be worth sharing. What landed in my lap has been more than a neat writing gig. It has been a gift. Talking with all of these women energized and inspired me. The process itself was revealing. I have a daughter a few years older than Samantha Casey. Many of today’s young women are so together, focused and fun. They embrace life with gusto. They give me hope that the next generation is going to be just fine. Jill Vogel debunks the notion that we have to limit ourselves in any way. She moves in a world where she can make things happen. It’s empowering. It’s a high. Certainly she is fortunate to have access and the means to forge new waters but we are all better for her commitment and the path she has chosen. Our middle son recently enlisted in the US Army. He is at Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri. When I met Laurie Enright we had an immediate connection. Her eyes teared as I spoke of my son. She’s been there. She’s seen it. She knows the harm that can befall young soldiers. She knows about service to your country and what that has meant for her and anyone who chooses the military. She’s also a hard working businesswoman. The success of Molly’s has not come easily and the economy hasn’t helped. I like her. I admire her tenacity and optimism. While not close friends, I have known Linda Reid for years. Our children have gone to the same schools. We’ve bumped into each other at school events or on sports fields. Sharing some time with her was tinged with a bit of sadness as our children are now young adults with all the challenges of growing up. Have we done all we can to help prepare them? Will they be able to survive? Seeing Linda rekindled those long ago days of school committee meetings, massive cupcake baking and shuffling kids to practices—all good and all in other chapters of our lives. As the oldest of the group, Anne Hall exemplifies what aging gracefully should be all about. There are no ends...just a series of new beginnings. The word ‘retirement’ isn’t in her dictionary. In her 70s, Anne works out regularly, loves traveling and relishes deep-water fishing. She supports all that is good about Fauquier County. She makes you feel proud to be a part of this community. She’s high on life. In each encounter, I came away refreshed and invigorated. Briefly connecting and linking their lives with mine has already made a difference for me. 6

Healthy Happenings

Farmer Girls Get It Fresh by George Rowand Innovations in any field involve someone taking an idea, tweaking it and coming up with something that is better, faster, easier or cheaper for the consumer. Take farmers markets, for example. For consumers, finding good, locally grown, locally raised food sometimes can be problematic. For farmers, finding customers for their good, locally grown, locally raised food sometimes can be a chore. Farmers markets often fill the bill, but customers usually cannot be certain what goods will be at what farmers market, while farmers are not certain if the goods that they carry to market will find customers on that day. Enter Farmer Girls, LLC, the brainchild of Deanna Child and Deborah Williamson of Fauquier County. Like many businesses that have introduced the power of the Internet to their business model, Child and Williamson have taken the idea of a farmers market to the next level. “The extension office had been working almost a year and a half to figure out how to help local farmers,” Child related. “I raise pigs and chickens on our farm in Orlean. I sell eggs, broilers and all pork products. Deborah and I started talking, and the next thing we knew, we were on our way. We are the organizers of Farmer Girls, LLC, and we started in August.” Now Farmer Girls runs a service that connects local farmers with local customers via the Internet. “We have a variety of farms that supply goods for us, from those that are certified organic to organic that’s not certified to food that is grown locally,” Child said.

The Idea People who have a desire to eat locally produced food often offer the same reasons: they are tired of buying food that has been grown who-knows-where, under conditions that are unknown, picked before it’s ripe and shipped across the country, or a hemisphere, to a nearby store. They often say that they want to help local farmers stay in business. There’s a lot to like in that formula. Farmer Girls, LLC allows a customer to go online, select what they need, and pick it up at one central location. “Customers shop online from Sunday through Wednesday morning,” Child said. “Then the food is delivered on Thursday. Customers can pick up the food here at Vint Hill on Thursday afternoon, and we deliver to the Marshall IGA, the Lee Highway Nursery in Warrenton, and to Burke. And we’re thinking about deliveries to Washington DC.” Fresh Food Continued on page 10 8

Fresh Food Continued from page 8

Beef, bison, goat, pork, poultry and rabbit are “It was a strong start,” Williamson, who raises lavender on her family farm, just a few types of meats that are available for said. “We thought that we had better perspective – a farmer’s perspective – to ordering. make it work. We’ve been gaining customers every month, and everybody is extremely happy with the quality of the food.” The list of what is offered is extensive, and the pickup is simple. “Every customer has a basket with a list of what they have ordered, and when farmers come in, they go around and put their products in the baskets,” Williamson explained. “We have 150 customers. We have a bigger variety of food than most farmers markets. We have cheese, all kinds of meat including beef, pork, chicken, bison, and turkey, and we have a lot of prepared things here. Our sausage maker buys the meat from one of our farmers. We have honey, vegetables, nuts, fruit, locally roasted coffees, herbal teas, baked goods like sweet rolls, bread, buns, cookies and cupcakes. The meat comes frozen and stays right in the basket, and all the meat is USDA approved.” The building at Vint Hill was humming a couple of weeks ago when the interview took place. Farmers and food producers were coming and going, putting items into baskets, filling paid orders, and then leaving, bare minutes of their time consumed. Carrie England, from Winchester, was among the producers that showed up that morning. “I have a business called ‘Fresh Flours,’” England explained. “I do soups from scratch and use all local and organic ingredients, and I do baked goods with local flour from Loudoun County.” Reaching into her satchel, she continued, “Today I have a roasted tomato basil soup, almond shortbread with cherries, and I do a ginger molasses cookie. And my chocolate zucchini bread sells out immediately.” England said that her business supports local farmers as well. “I go to orchards and pick my own fruit,” she stated. “That’s why my food is seasonal.” Dave Cybulski is a driver for Virginia Green Grocer in Warrenton, and he had a full load of goods for Farmer Girls. “Even though it’s winter, we still have greenhouses on the premises that are producing, and we also have organic eggs,” Cybulski said. “We have 80 Rhode Island Reds. They are good for eggs and for the meat, but we use them just for the eggs. Everything is certified organic. We have 16 Jersey cows that produce some wonderful milk.” Farmers of all ages bring their goods to the Farmer Girls. Items placed into baskets at Vint Hill that Thursday included bok choy, eggs, pasta sauce, lentil soup, ground beef, cheese, arugula, Swiss chard, steak, ravioli, celery, bacon, sausage and blueberry coffee cake. “It’s like a big general store,” Williamson said. “I’m so proud. Everything looks so beautiful, and everybody’s so ecstatic when they come to pick things up.” Farmers markets represent a good idea, connecting local farmers with local consumers. Farmer Girls, LLC took the idea, tweaked it and came up with an online farmers market that features a greater variety of food items and more convenience for the customer, along with the possibility of lower costs, and thus higher profits, and a reduction in time spent selling the produce for local farmers. It’s an innovative idea, and it’s working. The website for Farmer Girls, LLC is farmergirls.net. Customers pay a membership fee of $25 for six months or $40 for a year to purchase goods from Farmer Girls. Farmers interested in participating in the program should contact Depending on the time of year, a healthy Deanna Child at 703-868-6510 or deanna@farmergirls.net. Customers should variety of fruits and vegetables make their contact Deborah Williamson at 540-272-7839 or deborah@farmergirls.net. way from the farms to you. 10

Old Town Happenings


hile Warrenton has been cleaning up from the winter storms, the Partnership for Warrenton Foundation has been cleaning up on awards. Congratulations, Partnership, for garnering three prestigious awards from the Virginia Main Street Program. The Partnership was presented the awards by the Virginia Main Street Center at their 25th Anniversary Milestone Achievement Awards in Lynchburg. The awards are for Volunteerism, Private Investment, and Building Improvement. The Volunteerism award is for the contribution of over 40,000 hours of volunteer time since 1989. The value of the actual 42,631 hours logged is estimated at a market value of $852,092. Amy Gable, executive director of the Partnership, remarked, “There is no way the Partnership could exist without the wonderful volunteers it has enjoyed through the years. They are the main stay of the Main Street Program.” There are some impressive statistics from the Partnership’s 2009 Main Street program. Totals from the Program Funding for Main Street (five year leveraging) show the ratio of budget to all investments is $16.35 to 1, the ratio of budget to private investment $12.62 to 1 and the ratio of budget to public investment is $3.73 to 1. The economic impact on Old Town is why the Partnership received the Private Investment award for creating the climate for more than $30 million in private investments. Old Town Warrenton’s private investments to date are well above that with a total of $32,518,854.

The Building Improvement award is a new award from the Virginia Main Street Center and the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The Partnership received this award because of outstanding stewardship of historic preservation and fostering more than 500 downtown building improvements by private investors. Old Town Warrenton has had 650 rehabilitation projects with an average investment of $50,029. The Partnership for Warrenton is the first recipient of this award and is considered the Commonwealth’s leader in downtown historic preservation. All of this adds up to Warrenton’s Main Street Program, under the auspice of the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development, being herald as the leading Main Street program in volunteerism, private investments and building improvements. The Partnership would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to all of the volunteers, investors, merchants, businesses, employees of Old Town, for all of your time, expense and energy you put into Old Town and the community. This month, we have our Spring Sidewalk Sale to look forward to, on Saturday, April 17. Come to Old Town to enjoy shopping, sales and special offers from all your favorite Old Town shops! The rain date will be April 24th. Don’t forget First Fridays will begin in May and continue through October. If you are interested in volunteering for the Partnership for Warrenton in the office or for our events, please contact us at 540-349-8606. The Partnership for Warrenton is a non-profit organization dedicated to fostering the economic and aesthetic development of Old Town Warrenton through a comprehensive process of economic revitalization that seeks to protect, enhance and promote its architectural and historical heritage.

Jerry and Dennis Bowers and the Shortcut High School Bus are on a mission to collect school supplies for underprivileged children around the world. Shortcut High Inc. has teamed up with Operation International Children (OIC). OIC is a program established to bring desperately needed school supplies to the children of war-torn regions served by American troops. Founded by actor Gary Sinise Forrest Gump, Apollo 13) and author Laura Hillenbrand (Seabiscuit: An American Legend) OIC promotes the collection and contribution of both supply and monetary donations. 100% of all contributions to OIC are used solely for the project. With the help of the United States Armed Forces, OIC’s contributions are distributed to children throughout Iraq, Afghanistan and other nations. The goal of Operation International Children is to improve the quality of education for children by ensuring their access to the basic tools of learning, and to foster goodwill between American troops and local citizens while promoting the peace process. Shortcut High Inc. is a non-profit organization composed of a 1949 Ford custom low rider school bus and a couple of retired, volunteer Fauquier County residents. Restoration took five years and the bus was featured on Monster Garage. You may have sighted the bus cruising around Warrenton. The bus and crew recently attended the Battlefield High School’s Rock to Recovery Car Show, The Flying Circus Wings 14

& Wheels Car Show, Joe Gibb’s Youth for Tomorrow Country Fair, and the American Legion Post 72 Car and Truck Show. At the end of October the first local fundraiser took place at Fauquier County’s Greenville Elementary School and there are currently fundraisers by the Junior National Honor Society of Auburn Middle School and Sunday school classes of Our Savior Lutheran Church. Shortcut High welcomes support from schools, corporate organizations, church groups, scout troops and private individuals to help them promote Operation International Children. Listed on their website www.shortcuthigh.com under the tab “Helping Soldiers Help Children” is a list of the basic school supplies needed for the kits. Small stuffed animals and small sports supplies (Frisbees, soccer balls, footballs and jump ropes) are also welcome. If scheduling allows the bus will make an appearance at the kick-off and/or closure of a school supply drive. For additional information on OIC see www.operationinternationalchildren.com. Help them build peace in the world by making a difference in the life of a child! It is the children of the universe that are the real hope for peace in the future. The bus is headed to Kansas City, Missouri at end of April and dropping off a busload of supplies and goodwill. For more information please contact them at shortcuthighbus@yahoo.com.

Serving the Community

For those of us who live here, we know that Fauquier County is a cool community. After a while, you’ll start seeing the same faces show up at the banks, grocery stores or when you stop for gas. It is a comforting familiarity and one that speaks volumes about the place we call home. Featured this month in Warrenton Lifestyle are the faces of a few women who add to the soul and heart of this county. They vary in age and occupation. They represent a small scene on a much larger stage. As Anne Hall commented, “Five? There are probably 5,000.” Selected by the publisher for their ability to make a difference in the lives of others, their stories are worth sharing. They are inspiring. Cuddle up on a couch, take a break from your tasks, and enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of wine. Meet a pageant princess, politician, pilot and pub owner, playground promoter and property queen. They are phenomenal women.

Anita L. Sherman has worked nearly 10 years for Times Community papers. Currently she is the managing editor of the Culpeper Times. An award winning writer, she enjoys freelancing and has contributed to The Piedmont Virginian and Flavor Magazine. Originally from Oregon, Anita lives in Warrenton with her husband, Donald. They have three children - Sophia, Douglas and Alexander. 18

Fabulous Anne Hall Anne Hall deals in matchmaking. For over three decades, she has found success in the high stress arena of buying and selling homes. “It’s very satisfying to find just the right home for a family’s needs,” said Hall who orchestrates her pairings from a cheery office at the new Long and Foster building located on Blackwell Road. Hall excels at her craft. She knows that the idea of the perfect home coupled with affordability can be a harsh reality check. “It’s really important for the buyer to be pre-qualified before we start our search,” said Hall, “and to have a clear understanding of what that mortgage payment will be and if they are comfortable paying it, that way neither of us is disappointed.” Hall, who has been happily married for over 50 years, values what makes relationships work ― being happy in your home is a key factor. Hall takes great pride in putting together winning combinations between prospective buyers and their places of sanctuary. Hall tells her clients. “If you can see yourself in the house, then it’s the home for you.” Hall laughs as she recalls her shortest sale. “This couple looked at one house, loved it and have been there for 30 years.” With another sale it took three years. “They were friends and in no hurry and fine to work with,” said Hall whose business has been built through repeat customers and referrals. While some real estate agents may come and go, Hall shines as a stalwart in Fauquier County. The walls of her office are filled with accolades testifying to her credentials – Realtor of the Year, Salesperson of the Year, Code of Ethics Award, Life Member of Million Dollar Club Hall’s career didn’t start in real estate. After graduating from college, Hall taught sixth grade in Richmond. “You’re not going to believe this, but in those days, if you got pregnant while teaching in the public schools you had three months to resign,” reminisced Hall. Leaving the classroom coincided with the start of her family and a career change. A friend suggested that she try real estate because of her outgoing personality. “I didn’t want to be a total flop,” said Hall who has never looked back. Hall is a believer in and advocate for all things Fauquier County. “We have a

lot to offer and there are plenty of good people who live here,” said Hall who is crystal clear about what it takes to foster strong communities. Hall stressed that the two most important areas that speak to the wealth of a community are education and health care. To that end, along with juggling multiple listings and raising a family, Hall has been a major force on the volunteer scene. Starting as a pink lady 25 years ago with Fauquier Hospital, Hall now sits on all three of their boards as well as others where she has an impact whether it’s senior issues, the Free Clinic, Lord Fairfax Community College, Highland School, Rotary, or any number of fundraisers including support for the Society for

the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Hall also served two terms on the 7th District Committee of the Virginia State Bar. Currently, she serves on the vestry at St. James Episcopal Church. Religious in other ways, Hall enjoys her long walks and doesn’t miss her sessions with Susan at the Old Town Athletic Club. “Susan is keeping me alive,” laughs Hall, “I never know what new form of torture she will have for me but I love those Pilates.” Mounted on Hall’s wall is another testimony to her tenacity. Neon shades of blue streak his back and the his eyes are a steely black on this deep water Pacific wahoo that Hall caught while vacationing in Cabo San Lucas. Hall’s eyes twinkle. “I love deep water fishing,”

smiled Hall, “he was a fighter and if I caught him, I wanted him mounted.” She looks at the fish and remembers other seas. “Our son, John Nelson Hall, lives and works in London. In 2008, for our 50th wedding anniversary, we spent eight days with his family sailing the British Isles on a catamaran. It was absolute heaven.” Still on her “to do traveling” list is the General Bradley tour in Normandy. “That’s a big place that I would like to see.” One thing not on Hall’s agenda and not mandated by her profession is retirement. “Never,” she said. “I absolutely love what I’m doing, it keeps me sane and I will keep doing it until someone tells me that I’ve gone senile.”

Above: Linda with daughter Teylor. Below right: Linda and Teylor checking out the site of the future Fun For All Playground located on the grounds of the Warrenton Aquatic Recreation Facility.

Linda Reid is an advocate. For the past 14 years, she has devoted the majority of her time to the welfare of her daughter, Teylor, who was diagnosed with autism at an early age, is visually impaired and suffers from a seizure disorder. Coping with Teylor’s challenges catapulted Reid on a volunteer path through the years where she has served with numerous PTO groups but more specifically on county special education committees and as a member of the disability board. Reid happily admits to being a “coach’s wife.” Her husband, John, is active in Fauquier Youth Football and the Babe Ruth baseball program. “I’m always there as support,” said Reid who was instrumental helping with the Special Olympics events held in the past. A tennis player herself, she, along with another parent of a special needs child, John Schlenker, put together a tennis program under the umbrella of the county’s parks and recreation division.

Reid sees in her daughter the same aspirations that any 17-year-old would have – a desire for independence and a desire to do what her friends are doing – going to school and being part of her community. “She’s a young lady, I’d like for her to have the fullest life possible,” said Reid who is proud of the baby steps taken to give Teylor a taste of the world outside of her disabilities. Teylor has a small, parttime job at Country Cookin’ where she assists with table preparations. She also enjoys watering the plants at a nursery on Lee Highway. “Becky Campbell is so good allowing Teylor to help,” said Reid who has home schooled Teylor for the past two years. Teylor loves music and singing. Attending a regular play isn’t practical as she is visually impaired. However, as a family, several times a year, they will get dressed up, enjoy a dinner out and head

Samantha Casey Samantha Casey’s blond hair, porcelain complexion, and dazzling blue eyes scream model material. She is statuesque, svelte, and sophisticated. Casey’s youth and energy are bolstered by a bold and beautiful style. She wears a crown like it was always meant to be there. Capturing the Miss Virginia title in November, 21-year-old Casey prepares for a grander stage. In May, she competes in Las Vegas for the Miss USA 2010 title. Casey’s head turning good looks and winning smile make her a standout in any crowd. For a girl in her early twenties, she also has plenty of smarts and business savvy. She intends to capitalize on both as she walks the pageant path at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino. “I never considered myself a big pageant person,” said Casey shortly after winning the Miss Virginia title. But her road to that success came from her high school years. A stellar student at Highland School, Casey made time for volunteer work. She was active in Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD). She also spent time keeping herself in super shape for her bid for the Miss Teen Virginia title. Starting in her sophomore year, Casey, at 17, took home that crown as a senior. Continuing with her education, Casey joined the ranks of the student body at William and Mary, her longtime favorite school. Majoring in business and marketing, Casey faced a tough decision in her senior year. With just a few classes left to graduate, she opted to step back into the spotlight. Putting books on the back burner for now, she faces bright lights, body toning and being on 24/7 for the remaining weeks. 24

Casey prides herself on being a planner. “I’m very focused right now but it’s different, there is so much up in the air.” At William and Mary, Casey is a top student carrying a 3.7 GPA. She is active as a leader with the student chamber of commerce and has been admitted to several honor societies. It was in college that she learned of a cause that she now champions. “A friend of mine told me about it and when I looked into it, I was on board, said Casey of the international organization that has as its mission the end of child sex slavery and exploitation - LOVE146. Named after a young Asian girl, only identified by the number she held on a piece of cardboard, a team comprised of committed doctors, psychologists and other caregivers work tirelessly to help thousands of young children - like 146 - who are victimized globally and end up in prostitution, pornography or sex tourism. As a choice for her celebratory cause, Casey did not shy from tackling a touchy subject. One of the motivating factors behind Casey’s decision to go for the Miss USA pageant crown now was the opportunity to have international attention. “I’m really hoping to make it to the top five, if that happens, I’ll be in front of an audience of 60 million or more and I’ll be in a position to talk about this organization. That would make me very happy,” said Casey who is learning as much as she can about their ongoing work and needs. Working as a volunteer with Hospice of the Rapidan, Casey caught the eye of Tammy Barboza who had worked with that board as Director

of Development. Now with Virginia Living Television, Barboza has approached Casey about being a spokesperson for a leukemia association. “She’s very charismatic and a good speaker,” said Barboza. Sponsored by Gold’s Gym in Warrenton, Casey’s slim frame is kept sculpted and strong by regular workouts and a diet not always to her liking. “I get grouchy when I can’t eat what I want,” giggled Casey who leans toward Warrenton Lifestyle

spinach salads rather than spinach Alfredo pizzas. But, she loves pizza and, for now, isn’t looking to be a model anytime soon. Hovering between a size 4 or 2, Casey lets out a laugh. “Oh, I’d be too fat...you have to be a 0.” The son of a politician, Casey’s boyfriend Brett lives in Seattle. “He’s used to moving in high social circles and he’s taught me a lot,” said Casey of their long distance relationship. Casey confidently asserts that, “there are no skeletons in my closet.” Casey is not about to jeopardize her glamorous persona, advocacy for her cause and public profile. There’s too much at stake.

Casey smiles. “I’d like to elevate the image nationwide of pageants and I’d like a chance to talk about LOVE146.” Entering the scene, sponsor Donald Trump has spiced up the Miss USA pageant in recent years capturing ratings from the Miss America contest. At last year’s event, it came to a showdown between Miss North Carolina, Kristine Dalton, and Miss California Carrie Prejean. Asked by openly gay blogger Perez Hilton, one of the judges, about her stance on gay marriage, Prejean replied that while people were entitled to their choices she believed that “a marriage should be between a man and a woman.” While praised for her honest answer, Prejean took runner-up losing to Dalton - many convinced that it was due to her answer. Trump made headlines over the final outcome so perhaps prettiness and politics are mixing it up in pageants these days. Either way, Casey is pumped. “This is the perfect time to do this.” Her parents, manager, boyfriend, professors, fellow classmates and countless friends and supporters agree. It’s prime time for Samantha.

Jill Vogel Jill Vogel hurries out of her car perfectly coiffed in a stylish suit and high heels. She has breakfasted with her boys, has an hour or so at her office on North Hill Drive and then she’s back in the car for the two-hour drive to Richmond to attend General Assembly. Vogel is on track for her day - as a wife, mother, managing partner of HoltzmanVogel, PLLC, and state senator for the 27th District. “Care for some coffee,” she asks as she deftly maneuvers the hallways of her law firm that specializes in charity and non-profit organizations, election law and ethics. Framed photographs and certificates adorn the walls of her office displaying her Republican roots and credentials as an attorney. She’s most proud of one. “We’ve been named the best law firm in the area by the Washingtonian magazine for three straight years in a row,” beams the attractive brunette who multi-tasks effortlessly as she sends non-urgent cell phone calls to voice mail or intuitively takes others. Vogel’s nationally recognized status as an attorney coupled with her keen interest in 26

domestic policy prompted her to run for the state senate. “I felt that I could have an impact, that I could make a difference, that I could be a voice in public policy,” said Vogel. In 2007, she campaigned often with a child on her hip going door-to-door to win votes. Vogel won the election that sent her to Richmond as a state senator representing the 27th District that includes Frederick, Fauquier, Clarke, parts of Loudoun and the City of Winchester. Her work in the General Assembly mirrors her practice. She serves on the Senate’s Committee on Rehab and Social Services, the Committee on General Laws and the Privileges and Elections Committee.

many do not know all that she does. “At school, I’m the boy’s mom or the person on that committee,” laughs Vogel, “they don’t realize I’m a state senator.” Navigating in the professional ring, she is known for her legal prowess or her work serving on the Boards of the Virginia Outdoors Foundation or Massanutten Military Academy or the Board of Directors for the Belle Grove Plantation. Vogel is comfortable in her skin whether she’s a professional fashionista in her workplace or Richmond or donning sweat clothes for a trip to Subway or the grocery store. In all roles, she is sincere. “We are a true citizen legislature,” voiced Vogel of her role in Richmond.

three young boys – ages six, four and one – are the highlight of her life. Vogel is crazy about them. Times have changed. Virginia legislators used to be an all-male club. In its early history, there was no ladies room in Richmond. Vogel has further distinguished herself by being the first woman in the Virginia legislature to have a baby. Politically, Vogel defines herself as right of center. She knows how to run a business, a family and hopes to influence Virginia government in a positive and effective way. She’d like to see more done on the front end of issues - she can justify spending for health care initiatives which tackle problems early on before

“I couldn’t do what I do if the legislature met year round,” said Vogel, “this works because of the flexibility I have as a business owner and the schedule in Richmond.” Vogel’s enthusiasm for her work in the General Assembly, her pride for the law firm she helps run and her role as wife and mother paint a picture of super woman personified. Vogel’s engagement in each of her many spheres has her running a good race. She has raised the skill of multitasking to a new level and does so with confidence, an easy smile, gracious manner and tremendous heart. She moves in so many arenas that 28

“I love it because there are people there representing every walk of life and work and they all come from a unique perspective and they all have something to offer.” Vogel’s professional, political and personal reins pull her in many directions. She takes all three of her jobs very seriously. She’s an artist at prioritizing and can quickly make decisions about who in her life will get top billing for any moment in her long and full day. She’s most relaxed when she can slide into her role as a mother of five. The oldest two are stepchildren who spend most of their time in California. Her

Born and raised in the Shenandoah Valley, she lives in Upperville with her husband, Alex, also an attorney, three boys, two dogs, two birds and one lizard. “Oh, I am very fortunate...I am blessed with my family and work,” said Vogel. “I don’t have anyone that lives in but I do have help...I couldn’t do it otherwise.” Vogel scans the office for her briefcase, makes sure she has her cell phone and cheerily says goodbye to the girl at the front desk. She’s off doing what she does so well navigating the logistics of her many worlds and being a key player in all. Warrenton Lifestyle

Laurie Enright

Laurie Enright has logged over 500 combat flying hours. Her call sign is “Slider.” Her combat deployments have included Kuwait, Bosnia, and Kosovo, two tours in Afghanistan, four tours in Iraq as well as numerous humanitarian relief and contingency operations. Most recently, Enright was in Haiti. Enright is a Lieutenant Colonel in the Air National Guard where she has served for 24 years. As a member of the 193rd Special Operations Squadron, she flies C-130J aircraft as a Weapons Systems Officer. She is Chief of Weapons and Tactics and she also serves as a flight instructor. To say that Enright reaches for the stars is an understatement. She is right up there with them but she blushes easily when talking about her service. For her, it is a way of life that she


cherishes and one that comes naturally to her. “I was raised by parents who taught us about service and how everyone can make a difference in our world, no matter how small. My father was a police officer and my mother a librarian. They were both always volunteering and giving even though we didn’t have much to give,” said Enright. From a young age, Enright knew that she wanted to fly. Being a member of the military for her was right for all the right reasons. At 17, she enlisted in the Arizona Air National Guard. She received her undergraduate degree from Arizona State University. Enright sees the world from a vantage point that most of us will never experience. But, for many, her familiar face is well grounded on Main Street in Old Town Warrenton. While wearing wings as a pilot, Enright is perhaps best known in Fauquier County donning an apron and scurrying between tables and kitchen at Molly’s Irish Pub that she coowns with her sister, Kitty. The plot to hatch the pub was the brainstorm of three women on a plane coming home from a trip to Ireland. Laurie, her daughter Molly, and sister Kitty conceived the idea that many argued would not make it in Old Town. “We risked a lot,” said Enright “Kitty had worked for 11 years as a vice-president for airline sales. She and I are very close; we are tightly knit as a family...why not start a business together.” “When we opened Molly’s Irish Pub in 2001 we knew that in addition to it being a business and our livelihood, that we would make it a community gathering place with values based on giving back whenever we could,” said Enright who admitted that there is no end to good causes. “The Pub has been a venue for people who want to be involved and who want to give, we simply offer the opportunity.

Laurie Jane Enright Age: 42 Family: Daughter - Molly Home: Warrenton Work: Co-Owner - Molly’s Irish Pub and Lieutenant Colonel Air National Guard Education: Undergraduate from Arizona State University, Graduate Studies at Georgetown University, Graduate USAF Air Command and Staff College Website: www.mollysirishpub.com/

Laurie at the starting line of this year’s 5K Run/Walk which raised $20,000 to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project. (photo by Jeff Crites) We have had fundraisers all year, every year, from 5Ks, food drives, clothing drives, and Toys for Tots.” “What we realize is that if a little independent 80 seat pub in Warrenton can achieve so much for those less fortunate, imagine what all of the businesses could do,” smiled Enright. Volunteering at a base hospital while on a tour in Afghanistan gave Enright a firsthand look at the physical and emotional suffering endured by the injured men and women serving. “We all need to give back to them,” said Enright, “they are doing so much.” With that in mind, Molly’s 5-K Run and Walk to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project was held in March. (At press time, the event raised over $20,000.) The Enright sisters manage a staff of 14. Molly’s is open 7 days a week serving lunch and dinner. Live music several days a week keeps the place hopping. 32

Enright is grateful. “We love it, this is our home and we’re so fortunate that our patrons continue to support us.” Being a single mother, business owner and military officer, Enright constantly juggles roles and responsibilities. “It’s a balancing act, never forgetting my priorities and always remembering those who have made it possible for me,” said Enright. “Without the love and sacrifice of my sister I simply could not do what I do. Every time I’ve deployed Kitty becomes a second mother to Molly, she manages everything in my absence. For those of us in the military we cannot give enough credit to those family and friends who stay behind and take care of it all so we can do our job on behalf of our country.” Molly has her mother’s heart. The hardest part about deploying for Enright is leaving her daughter. They have missed many holidays and special

occasions. Nevertheless, despite personal challenges, Enright embraces her many roles with grace. “I do not consider myself extraordinary I only consider myself extra fortunate. I have been blessed with a loving family, friends, a successful business and most important a daughter who gives me all the joy and love one could ever imagine.”

Medication Review Proves Valuable Tool for Seniors

By: Margaret Rowe, PharmD, Director of Pharmacy, Fauquier Health.

When she was hired by Aging Together in 2005 Kathi Walker didn’t anticipate just how quickly her new found knowledge of aging issues would become personally so important. “A few years ago my mother, age 73, started showing signs of change in her physical and mental abilities. Mom was an independent woman in relatively good health. She’d been married for more than 50 years, raised three children, received her GED and gone on to college. In between raising children she worked, enjoyed traveling, volunteered at Church, and was an avid reader.”

Approximately 90% of the elderly in the United States take medications, and almost 1 in 3 older adults take at least 5 medications. The more medications taken by an individual, the more likely they are to cause drug reactions or side effects. This is particularly true in the elderly, who may be more sensitive to drug effects. More medications to keep track of also means increased likelihood of mistakes in taking doses correctly. People 65 years of age or older are two and a half times more likely to visit the emergency room due to an adverse drug reaction than are younger people.

As a young adult, Kathi’s mother suffered from depression that she and her doctors were able to manage with proper medication. As an older adult she was diagnosed with diabetes and high cholesterol, requiring additional medications. Shortly thereafter, depressive symptoms seemed to reemerge. But she wasn’t sure where the new symptoms were coming from.

Kathi’s mom scheduled an appointment with her doctor and also made arrangements for a medications review. She discovered that some of the medications she was taking were older and no longer considered appropriate for someone her age. She was taken off some medications while others were either replaced or had dosage changes.

While advances in medical treatment, including medication therapy, have increased both the quality of life and longevity in the elderly, the benefits may be offset by other concerns.

Situations like this are frequently experienced by older adults. But unlike Kathi’s mother, many do not think to include periodic reviews of medications Medication Continued on page 40

as a part of their ongoing healthcare. Take time with your physician to review prescribed drugs, vitamins, and herbal supplements. A drug taken in your 30’s and 40’s may not have the same affect when you are in your 70’s or 80’s. as lifestyles change, individuals gain or lose weight, or people build up a resistance to a particular drug or supplement. Age alone is not the only factor that puts a person at risk for an adverse drug reaction. People with multiple medical conditions require ongoing treatment with a number of drugs. In the world of pharmacy, it is a well-know fact that the more drugs a person takes, the more likely they are to experience

The best ways to assure you get the most benefits possible from your medications are to be well informed and to keep your doctors well informed. Below are a few tips on protecting you or your loved one from a medication error: • Carry a list of all medications you take. This should include all prescription drugs, nonprescription medications, vitamins and herbal nutritional supplements. Share this list with your healthcare providers, including your pharmacist(s). • Tell your healthcare provider how and when you actually take your medication, especially if this is different from the originally prescribed directions. • Your medication list should also include medicines you cannot take because of allergies or other reactions, as well as allergies such as peanuts, latex or shellfish. • If you have questions about your medicine, ask to speak to the pharmacist. • Ask the names of medications you are receiving during your hospital or clinic visit. • Request any written information about your medications. • If you don’t understand something about your medications, ask your physician, nurse or pharmacist. Be especially alert to unexpected changes, such as the appearance of your medication. • Enlist a family member or friend as your care partner to be your advocate and help you understand the information you are receiving.

a drug-drug interaction. Additionally, people with multiple medical conditions often see specialists in addition to their regular physician. Not all of the physicians who see a person are fully knowledgeable about the other medications the patient is taking when prescribing new drugs. A physician may inadvertently prescribe a drug that is not appropriate for that individual. Some people use more than one pharmacy, perhaps to save money on high prescription medication costs. This practice may seem penny-wise but does not allow a pharmacist to assure a full medication review as new or existing prescriptions are filled, compounding the possibility of medication interactions. One local pharmacist shared the story of a 76 year old man who used various pharmacies in the community. He also had his son help him get medications on-line. When this man was prescribed a medication for depression, it was not apparent from his records that he also received anti-seizure medicine from an on-line Canadian pharmacy. His seizures began increasing until his daughter called the doctor to review his entire medication list and the interaction between the seizure and depression medications was discovered. Pharmacists are a tremendous resource in assessing safe 40

• Upon discharge from the hospital or emergency room, make sure you are provided with an updated list, noting any changes to your medication regimen. • Always provide your newest medication list to your physician when you have your next office visit.

medication usage. Brown bag reviews, named to reflect putting all your medications in one brown bag for your pharmacist to assess, are a great way to assure that your medications are causing you any unknown interactions or side-effects. Many local pharmacies will schedule brown bag reviews for groups or individuals. Aging Together’s Health and Wellness Committee will help schedule a brown bag session for an older adult community group. Sandy Harris, pharmacist at Culpeper Regional Hospital, has conducted many brown bag sessions for older adults in the area. One of her concerns is the potential interaction of Vitamin K and the blood Medication Continued on page 42 Warrenton Lifestyle

thinning medication Coumadin. She always reminds seniors to watch the amount of Vitamin K in over the counter vitamins if they are taking this medication. Sandy reminds everyone that it is important to include over the counter and herbal remedies also in your brown bag review. People are living longer, scientists are constantly identifying new treatments, and our knowledge of the process of aging is developing as well. There are a variety of resources that can be accessed to identify medications that may pose concerns for older adults. One of many examples, the “Beers List,” provides 42

guidelines about medications that should rarely be used by seniors. The Beers List is not used by all physicians, but at the very least serve as an example of growing need for all of us to ask for regular review of our medications to determine their usefulness and risk as we age and change. Kathi’s mother continues her regime of daily prescribed drugs and herbal supplements. She schedules routine doctor visits to monitor her health and carries an updated medications list in her wallet.. As her condition changes, one of the first things she makes sure to do is ask for a review of her medications. This has proven to be a valuable assessment

for all involved - patient, family, doctor, and pharmacist. She experiences fewer side effects from medication interactions and feels better overall.

Evolution of The Piedmont Symphony Orchestra Rock Music With Full Orchestra Evolution – The Season

The Performances

Thus, “Evolution” became the title of the 2009/10 season. As the PSO Board of Directors met early in 2009, Quader again raised the bar: “To attract a younger audience that will want to return and see our classical performances, the Orchestra must consider performing contemporary music.” An epic musical project was born and dubbed “Nights in White Satin – A Rock Symphony Orchestra Performance.”

The performances will be held at Highland Center for the Arts located at 597 Broadview Avenue in Warrenton, VA. Shows are Saturday, 10 April at 8PM and Sunday 11 April at 3 PM (doors open ½ hour before the show). Tickets are $20/Adults, $15/Seniors 60+ and $5/Students. PSO recommends purchasing tickets in advance at www. piedmontsymphony.org as we expect these concerts to sell out. If you have questions, please call (540) 270-3168 and leave a voice mail. If you would like to make a donation, you may do so online or mail a check to PO Box 509, Warrenton VA 20188.

The Rock Band

Hanna Rodriguez (left) and Laural Gravatte (right) concentrate on their violin parts in Kashmir by Led Zeppelin

The Vision “You have to make the orchestra exciting to today’s audience. Our culture’s way of being entertained is different than it was 50 years ago. Piedmont Symphony must consider this as it evolves.” Music Director, Glenn Quader, laid out his vision for the Piedmont Symphony five years ago and he has since made good on his plans. As the orchestra has grown in size and professional scope, it has presented three world premiers, three U. S. premiers and it has incorporated multimedia into its performances. On the technical side, the PSO has built an innovative website including video podcasts, and introduced the first microsite designed specifically for mobile devices. PSO has received national recognition for these aspects of its marketing efforts. 44

The full PSO will surround a rock band as it plays songs by the Moody Blues, Chicago, the Beatles, and other hits by Led Zeppelin and Kansas. Performing with the Orchestra will be Russ Hasty (vocals/drums) and Ken Hasty (vocals/ guitars), formerly of the Canaveral Band, a popular touring act in the late 80s. Russ and Ken also toured with Kansas from 1994 to 1998 as musical support technicians and backup musicians. Jack Macinnis, who is currently Director of the Performance Theatre and Operations Engineering at Sirius XM Satellite Radio, will be on electric and acoustic guitars. Thomas Tucker (bass/sax/guitar/vocals) has performed and recorded with many regional musicians. Regular PSO member Brian Jones will handle piano for the group and Lyle Muncy, wellknown locally, will be singing lead on many of the songs. PSO Music Director Glenn Quader will also play bass and PSO Assistant Conductor Paul Kim will tackle rock violin. Russ Hasty may have summed up the band’s excitement saying, “I am so stoked to do this. After all the cool things my brother and I have done, getting a chance to do this music with a full orchestra of the quality of Piedmont Symphony is awesome. I can’t wait!”

This concert is generously sponsored by the folks at Country Chevrolet. (photos by Karl Pittelkau)

In a Short Sale transaction, a lender agrees to accept less than the amount owed on a mortgage. This process can be stressful and time-consuming.

What are the benefits of a short sale with Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc./Platinum Services Group? • May be faster and less expensive than a foreclosure for both the lender and the homeowner. • Could help prevent a homeowner from foreclosure or bankruptcy. • A Short Sale may be less damaging to the homeowner's personal credit.

Introducing Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc./Platinum Group Services This team was created to help homeowners who may be facing this scenario. Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc./Platinum Group Services is a short sale processing company that is specially trained to work exclusively with Long & Foster Sales Associates and lenders to help homeowners navigate the complex world of Short Sale. They have an efficient and streamlined process to help make the short sale transaction less stressful for the seller.

If you think this may be your answer, you will want to work with the best trained team in real estate—and get access to the exclusive Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc./Platinum Group Services. Contact a Long & Foster Sales Associate today. 00598IBN©FLS10

Have you spoken to your doctor? • Envision how your life would be different one year from now if you were to become physically active. Where would you be? How would you feel? What would you look like? • Why do you want a healthier and more active lifestyle? For change to be successful, it has to be aligned with your core values. Be honest here. Why is this change important to you? What is your primary reason for becoming more physically active? • How will you personally benefit from becoming physically active? How will your family benefit from this change? List at least four benefits to help you stay focused. • What obstacles and challenges will you face when beginning your fitness program? How will you overcome them? Be specific. • What people, resources and systems can you rely on for support? • Make a list of the types of physical activities you enjoy or can envision yourself trying.

Mental Health


Who among us is perfect? Who among us does not find his vision impaired, or his legs less than sturdy, or his hairline gradually receding? Who can say that his memory is completely accurate, his ability to understand acute, and his power of logic beyond reproach? Who among us is not disabled in one form or another? Is it not so that we are all mere fractions of what we would like to be or ought to be? Folklore tells us that “practice makes perfect” yet we know within us that neither we ourselves, nor anything we do can ever be perfect. We struggle through each day, sometimes trying to our utmost sometimes not doing our best – but subconsciously realizing that everyone of us is disabled. As we do so, we try to hide our disabilities from others. We feel guilty that we are not all we pretend to be. We smile and act as though we were doing exactly what we had intended to. Being disabled, then is a universal condition. It is common to all of us and varies only in that each of us has different disabilities and to different degrees. At the same time, no matter to what extent the disability exists, the fact remains that most of us are born with brains of great potential. Of the ten billion or so cells in the brain, some of them – many of them – are available to be stimulated and used. There are those among us who try to hide their disabilities, but find it more difficult to do because their so-called “disabilities” are too conspicuous. If one leg is shorter than the other, it is hard to hid the fact that one is limping. If one’s

DISABILITY? by Dr. Robert B. Iadeluca

eyes aren’t functioning, it’s hard to walk along the street and pretend no help is needed. If a person’s brain injury causes him to shake constantly or to speak with a slur, or to have trouble reading, he can’t smile the same smooth smile and act as if he was doing exactly what he would like to do. His lack of perfection is more obvious so we label him different. Our advanced age of technology, however, has made us ask, “What is a whole person?” If your appendix has been removed, are you still a whole person? If one of your kidneys has been removed or

Who among us is capable of learning without help from others, without a pat on the back, without that wavering ray of hope?

Disability Continued from page 52

your heart replaced with another one, are you still a complete individual with capabilities? What if you lose the use of one lung? Or come back from combat without arms or legs? Don’t you still have the same childhood memories and perhaps the same hopes and wishes? You are you, disability and all. The wonder of nature is that you are never without any ability at all. Regardless of disabilities, obvious or not, there is within each of us the power to think and to do. The person without any brain cells is dead. The person with living brain cells is capable of doing something, and the goal is merely to find each person’s limits. Almost never do we push ourselves to our limits. Furthermore, not only do we take it easy on ourselves, but we often commit the crime of blocking others from reaching their limits. We block them in many ways – putting them out of our sight and away from our aid; depriving them of opportunities to do things; speaking to them bluntly or acting as if they are utterly helpless; giving them a job far beyond their limits, there forcing them to fail and perhaps to give u hope. Who among us is capable of learning without help from others, without a pat on the back, without that wavering ray of hope? Most of us who feel that in some small way we have succeeded can point to a parent or a teacher or a friend who gave us that extra boost. Do you consider yourself a “self made” person? Pause, if you will, and re-examine your life. Do you really mean that you have never received any important help of any sort? From anyone? At any time in your life? The likelihood is that none of us has succeeded on his own. Putting it simply, we are all disabled. What has happened, then, is that various people in our lives have urged us – by patting us on the back, either high up or low down – to use our brain potential just a little bit more. Some of us tend to emphasize our disabilities.

“Musical notes all sound the same to me.” “It’s no use – I can’t even draw a straight line.” “You want me to multiply that”? I cant even add a column of figures.” “Science was always a mystery to me.” Despite our disabilities, though, someone saw that we were whole persons, that we had billions of brain cells not being used. To our never ending surprise, we are able to tote up grocery lists, pick out a popular tune, draw a fairly decent sign and catch the general plan of orbiting a human being around the moon. We are all teachers. We are all able to urge forward others who are disabled. We can do it through empathy. We can to some degree put ourselves in another person’s shoes. We dislike admitting it openly, but within us we know that there is not much difference between having wobbly legs and being without legs – between having poor vision and no vision at all – between a bad memory and a terrible memory. Everyone we meet has some sort of ability and some sort of desire to learn, so everyone we meet is a potential student whom we can help, regardless of his apparent disability. Everyone has disabilities, and everyone also has great potential. Everyone has the desire to advance. Everyone has unlimited informational resources available to him. Everyone has a brain just waiting to be stimulated. Everyone can be educated and perform – even to a greater extent – day after day until the last moment of his life. So, what is your disability? And what are you doing about it?

What’s New



Spring is here, Easter is just around the corner and we are all ready to get outside after the snowy winter we had this year. It is time to clean up or just get out and explore our wonderful county. We have a new business to help with the cleaning up part, Executive Auto Detailing is ready to do a full detail on your car and get it ready for spring. The detail includes a wash, wax, buffing and carpet cleaning. They are running a spring special of $75 for cars and $85 for trucks and mini vans, and you can bring it to them or they will come to your home or work. How is that for convenience? Call Justin Ulrich at 540-272-5820 to make your appointment now. When your car is clean and you are ready to explore, you might want to start with the new Iron Tree Tea Garden in Marshall. You can get anything from a pot of tea to high tea with scones, savories and sweets. Or try the featured sandwich, soup du jour or a special dessert; they even have a menu for the kids. The Master Tea Gardener is Sherry and they open Thursday through Saturday at 11:30 am, with the last seating at 3:00 pm. The tea garden currently accepts cash or checks only. If you want to do something special for the little girls in your life, try the Pampered Princess Day Spa on Culpeper Street in Old Town. They offer manicures, pedicures, chocolate facials, shimmering make-up and hair up-dos for girls ages five to fifteen, with snacks, if you wish. They also have a party room for up to six children and can add pizza, drinks, cupcakes and gift bags to the party. If you are looking for something a little more outdoors for the whole family, Buckland Farm Market is now open for the season from 9 am until 7 pm Monday through Saturday and 9 am to 6 pm on Sundays. So stop by and pick up some fresh produce, fresh baked items or a jar of your favorite jam. And for ice cream, hot dogs and french fries, Carousel Frozen Treats is now open for the season also. Sure makes a tasty outing on one of these warm spring afternoons. Watch for the grand opening of the new Great Harvest Bread Company on Main Street, April 16th. The space is shaping up beautifully and they will be selling their whole grain breads soon. Last month I mentioned that Bartleby’s Café appeared to be closed, but that was only temporary and everything is back into full swing. So, the next time you are walking down Main Street and need something good to eat, stop in for coffee or a sandwich, you won’t be sorry. I also put in last month’s column that a Lone Star Steak House was coming near the Harris Teeter, but I need to correct that, it is a LongHorn Steak House that is being built there. So, get out and try something new, Warrenton and Fauquier County have a lot to offer.
