Savoring Sixteen by Hannah M. Borja

a quick road trip through the life of a local sixteen year old including the mapping of college, driving and world travel. Unlike my mother, who is a scheduling master, I have never been talented in the art of updating one’s calendar. Not only do I hardly ever actually write anything in those demanding little boxes, a day will stretch on two or three weeks before I realize my horrid tardiness. Then, suddenly, twenty-one days of my life will be accounted for in less than thirty seconds. I finally committed myself to changing the month, in a tiny flip of a page, on the even tinier Teen Vogue calendar that I have taped to a wall in my room. It was then that I had a fantastic, 72-hours-late revelation as Ashley Benson gazed at me with expectant eyes: it was the month of my birthday. Moreover, I will suddenly be thrown into this oddly new and frighteningly familiar World of Sixteen. It is a world that beckons with driving, travels abroad, and freedom; a world that threatens with work, college preparations, the hardest schedule known to mankind, and even less sleep than before.

of these four are full year classes: AP Calculus, which I am absolutely dreading, and AP Biology, which I am ecstatic about. AP US History is supposed to be a massive workload. English 11 Lang & Comp AP should be easy for me. My two electives, however, are as crucial to me as my core classes: I need them to be interesting and worthwhile enough that I actually learn something, but I also need them to be a breeze. I decided on Photography 1 and Speech Fundamentals. So now, upon finishing

division of zero by zero to get three and analyzing the long-term effects of the Whiskey Rebellion, I can just take pictures and talk to myself in a mirror (perhaps even both at the same time). Academically, my junior year is supposed to be my hardest in my high school career, all in purposeful preparation for college. That reminds me of all the other college preparations I have to do, like research and planning, throughout this year. I get tired just thinking about it. savoring continued on page 8

Regarding school, this year is supposed to be one fantastic transition. Now, I am simply trying to enjoy the time I have left before all my core classes are AP: English, Math, History, and Science. Two 6

Driving is another prevalent theme in the novel of one’s sixteenth year of life. I received my learner’s permit last October, effectively striking fear into the hearts of my parents. I look back on my DMV experience and laugh to myself. The first time I went to the DMV in Warrenton, I did not know that, while the work day ends at 5 p.m., they stop giving tickets for the permit test at 4:30. I got through the door at 4:29. Fast forward to the second time I went to the DMV (on time). On the test, you cannot miss any questions about street signs. Now, unlike most of my friends, I actually read the driving study-guide book and I was not worrying about that portion of the test. Maybe I should have been, because I clicked business district instead of school-crossing. Third time’s the charm. Despite the obviousness of the following statement, I cannot wait to start driving independently. But scenes of secret outings and joyful cruising are not exactly the ones dancing in my head. Instead, I will not have to take the bus to school. I will get to quit worrying who is my ride home back from sports and extracurricular activities. Even better, I will able to keep my mom from stressing out that she has to take us everywhere. And, even though my parents are probably hesitant to agree, I will have significantly more freedom. Best part, period.

Wait, what about my Sweet Sixteen celebration? Actually, I am not having one. I am Hispanic, so culturally we focus on our fifteenth birthday (will a celebration called a quincenera) instead. As a late quince gift, I will be blessed to have the opportunity to travel abroad on an educational tour in France and Spain this summer. After that, I will get to go back to Puerto Rico to see my family (and the beach!) again. I am really hoping that traveling now will allow me to broaden my horizons even more when I am older. Honestly, I absolutely love being a teenager. I love our responsibilities and our opportunities. I love the excitement of not knowing exactly where we are going to be or what we are going to do in two years’ time. Obviously, our stress will just increase the older we get. I think that is okay. That is why enjoying this time of our lives is so important (and well, awesome). Sometimes I feel like the world, with all its blessing and horrors, and my future, with all its ups and downs, are just waiting for me. They are out there, somewhere. I am in no rush to reach them. I am too busy savoring sixteen.

all in the family all in the community by George Rowand

Father to son. Father to sons. It has been the way of the world for centuries, but not so much lately, especially in America. Yet in Warrenton, that story is playing out at Austin Realty Management and Investments, Inc. where father Fred has been joined by two of his sons, James Frederick Austin III – called “Trey” by everyone – and Will. It’s a rerun of what Fred did in his day, but let them tell the story.

“I finished college and went to China to teach English and slowly made my way back,” he explained. “I stopped in California and did construction management there for three years. Then I came back to Richmond where I met my wife and worked two years in construction management before coming back here.” For Fred, the reunions have been extremely positive.

“I started out working at Blue Ridge Hardware on Main Street with my Dad,” Fred said. “I’ve been here in Warrenton most of my life, except for a stint in the Army and at UVA.”

“I have a great working relationship with my sons,” he said. “They have brought different ideas, different energy levels, different interest levels.”

“I think it’s a neat story that you took over a family business and worked with your Dad, and we’re doing the same thing,” Will said. “It’s pretty rare that happens these days.”

For the twosome who are graduates of Fauquier High School, working back where they started has its benefits.

Complete the circle The sons didn’t start out working for their father. “I came aboard 10 years ago,” Trey stated. “I was in the IT world, an IT manager. I had taken some real estate courses in college, and when I was preparing to get married, I was looking for some extra income, so I came in and worked part time for Dad, showing properties. He was expanding 10 years ago, so he asked me to come in full time, and I did.” Will took a more circuitous route back to Warrenton.

“In your career, you always think, ‘salary and title,’ and I went out looking for it and slowly made it back to Warrenton,” Will said. “It’s just once you realize that quality of life and a sense of community is most important, then you can do whatever you want to do, and your work rewards you if you’re successful at it.” “Sometimes your rewards aren’t just money but joy, satisfaction and fulfillment,” Trey added. “I get to do something I really like to do. If I want to have lunch with my child at school, I can do that. I’m right here.” family continued on page 12

Then and Now: Trey and Will sit with their Dad in their Warrenton office. The photo to the right is a 1984 campaign photo for the Town Council that includes Fred and his three boys. Working the business The business has been a going concern for 17 years, moving from one location to another while adding space and employees. The company opened an office in Gainesville in 2010. “I started with one part-time secretary and now we’re up to 14 people working here and in Gainesville,” Fred said. “We’re busting at the seams. We need more space.” Business has been good, even through the latest downturn in real estate. “We rent property and we manage properties,” Fred said. “We buy and sell property. We manage commercial buildings. We manage homeowners associations. Because of our involvement, we are able to give a lot of emphasis to see where investments in real estate are moving.” “Our core is property management, but we’re very client driven and relationship based,” Will stated. “We manage over 600 units of rentals,” Trey added. With that many properties in their management portfolio, one can see how time consuming the work can be. “These are a day-to-day, every-day kind of business,” Fred said. “Somebody calls and they’ve got a place they want us to manage. We collect the rents. We take care of the repairs if something’s wrong. Somebody’s on pager 24 hours a day, and he goes out. We’ve got good working relationships with the contractors in the area.” “One of the things we do is regular inspections,” Trey stated. “Because we’ve got so many properties under management, we’re always passing a property, it seems, and we’ll take notice as we go by … is the grass being cut, is the trash piled up, does it look nice? Are they complying with the rules? So we’re regularly keeping an eye on that, and also we do interior inspections of the home where we go through and check to make sure that the tenants are taking care of the property. One of the things I hear most from owners who have tried to manage their property themselves is ‘I 12

was just getting the rent every month, I didn’t really check on them. I know I should have,’ but people sometimes feel uncomfortable going into somebody else’s home, and we’re very comfortable doing it.” Regular inspections of the property tend to work to the advantage of the landlord and the tenant, Fred explained. “Many of the times, when the inspector goes in, she’s not only looking for cleanliness and things that they’re not doing that they should be doing, but she’s looking around to see if there is a problem with the home,” he said. “In one instance, the tenant had boxes in their basement, and there was a little wet spot under the water heater. Our inspector said, ‘How long has that been down there?’ The tenant didn’t know. Well, that hot water heater was getting ready to blow, and it would have ruined their stuff. So we were able proactively to see that and get it taken care of before it was a major problem. And that’s the purpose of the inspection … not just to make sure that the tenant’s in compliance, but to see if the home is being maintained. We do that twice a year for each property.” “It’s also a good opportunity for the tenant to let us know of any issues that they have,” Trey added. “‘Hey, the tub drips from time to time.’ It shows that we care about them, too. Most of our tenants are great tenants, take great care of the property, and they want an opportunity to be heard.” family continued on page 14 Warrenton Lifestyle

With as many natural disasters as the area has experienced in the past few years – hurricanes, an earthquake, heavy snowstorms – the Austins have had plenty of practice handling emergency situations. “We’ve addressed property damages multiple times,” Fred said. “We’ve had trees down, roofs blow off, fires, floods, termites … every natural disaster, we’ve dealt with it. Preparedness is something that you do on a daily basis. If somebody’s water heater goes out, you can’t wait until Monday to get it fixed. You have to do it today.” “We get drills,” Trey stated, “the Derecho, for example, or large snowstorms. Before large snows, we go through our list of contractors, snow removal folks. We get the occasional crushed shed or ice dams or tree falling on the houses, so we get to test ourselves on a regular basis.” Their regular business practices have helped them develop good relationships that can be called upon when times get rough. “Our contractors generally are local people,” Fred said, “though some are regional. Our contractors know that we are going to be fair with them, and we expect them to be fair with us. With this many homes, we know what a water heater should cost, we know what an air conditioning unit should cost, so when we get the bids, it’s apples to apples. And we pay our bills promptly, so when we call at 5:30 on a Friday evening, they will answer the phone, and they say, ‘Okay, we’ll get someone there.’” The market As active as they are in real estate, the Austins have some firm opinions about the current market. “Rentals are doing very well,” Trey stated. “We’re finally seeing some increases in our rental prices after the last few years. Sales over the past two quarters are really improving. We’ve seen some multiple-offer situations. We’ve seen some homes that are in good condition, that are cleaned up and that are desirable, move very quickly. We’re starting to see more movement in the $400,000 to $600,000 range, whereas last year, that was pretty still. We’re feeling optimistic.” How can an investor make money in this market?

Fred, pictured here, in the late 80’s handing out candy in front of Blue Ridge Hardware. for anywhere from $1,000 to $1,500 a month. The minimum return that we want to see is 20 percent on investment. For some of them, it’s 30 or 40 percent.” The investors are not just local people. “There are a number of international buyers that are looking at properties in the area … vineyards and dairy farms,” Will said. “We have one big investor from Italy, and they have a number of properties over there, and they’re just treading water,” Fred added. “They’re very happy they have investments here. They’ve been in the real estate business in Italy since after World War II, and this is the worst they’ve seen.” In spite of the load of paperwork that is necessary to keep more than 600 rental properties in good shape and homeowners’ associations running well, Fred Austin said that he enjoys the business that he started and that has turned into a family concern. “The old saying is that you own your own business, you can work half-days, and it’s true,” he explained. “You can work any 12 hours that you want. We enjoy where we live. We know the community. We know day-to-day issues, we can talk to people here about life. It’s changed a lot from when I started the business, but it’s still a rural lifestyle.”

“We’ve had several individual investors come to us in the past year who want to take advantage of the low prices in the market,” Trey said. “The entry level kind of homes – the small ramblers, the townhouses – those are still priced so you can make pretty good money on a rental investment situation.

“One of my friends works in Northern Virginia,” Will said, “and his lease is up, and he’s wondering, ‘Should I move to Burke or back to Warrenton?’ I was like, ‘Well, do you want convenience or community? Do you want to be a part of something bigger than going to the supermarket and having a restaurant to go to? You want to be home, right?’”

We’re finding homes anywhere from $80,000 to $140,000 in Fauquier and Culpeper. These are homes that can rent out

Warrenton’s Stuyvesant School Part 1: Edwin B. King ‘put his heart and soul into this school’ by John T. Toler

From its earliest days, Warrenton has been the home of private and public schools, starting with Hezekiah Balch’s Warren Academy, founded in 1777, and the inspiration for the naming of the town when it was chartered in 1810. Throughout the 19th century and into the 20th century, several private schools and academies passed in and out of existence in Fauquier County, reflecting the educational and demographic trends of the day. The early classical schools yielded to military academies, which in turn were replaced by less regimented institutions that focused on the individual student, athletics and social development. Two schools were opened in 1912, after the closing of the Bethel Military Academy the year before. The Stuyvesant School for boys was located on Winchester Street on the site of the present-day St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church and St. John’s School. The Warrenton Country School for girls was located just outside of town on the Springs Road. It closed in 1949, and was purchased by the U.S. Government and developed as Station A of the Warrenton Training Center. Stuyvesant lasted a few years longer, closing before the start of the 1954 school year, and passing into history. Stuyvesant School: the ideal Stuyvesant School was founded by Edwin Burruss King (1876-1950), the son of Dr. and Mrs. J. Francis King, and a native of Wilmington, N.C. Educated in New England, Mr. King 18

This large house on the Winchester Road was the nucleus of the early Stuyvesant School. According to historian Annie G. Day, ‘During the Civil War, Burnside superceded McClellan in command of the Army of the Potomac in the rear of this house.’

graduated from St. Mark’s School in Southborough, Mass., and Yale University. He was a lineal descendant of Peter Stuyvesant, the last Dutch governor of New Amsterdam, renamed New York after the British took over the city in 1664. After earning his MA degree from Yale, Mr. King returned to St. Mark’s, where he served as headmaster for nine years. From there, he spent two years as the senior master at Ridgefield School, Ridgefield, Mass., followed by three years as headmaster of the Gilman Country School for Boys in Roland Park, Md.

Although his early career was spent in the north, Mr. King always considered himself a southerner. In June 1905, he married Miss Mary Semmes Forbes (1878-1961), the daughter of Murray and Emily North Forbes, a family with deep roots in Warrenton. Mr. and Mrs. King had three children, Mary Forbes (19091988), Edwin Jr. (1911-1915) and Emily North King (1916-2004). According to Annie G. Day in Sketches and Illustrations of Warrenton and Fauquier County, Va., in 1908, Mr. King’s mother was living at in a prestuyvesant continued on page 20 Warrenton Lifestyle

Civil War home on Winchester Street owned by T. North Fletcher and his brother Albert Fletcher, who was married to Mrs. King’s sister, Emily Forbes Fletcher (1876-1971). She named the home “Stuyvesant.” The property consisted of 91 acres, and stretched from the Winchester Road (present-day Winchester Street), south to what later became the Old Bypass, and east almost to Waterloo Street. Stuyvesant was the King family’s home place in Warrenton; it is recalled that another of Mrs. King’s sisters, Jane Caroline Forbes, was married to William Fitch Wilbur and at Stuyvesant in 1910.

According to a description of the school published in The Fauquier Democrat in 1933: “Education has taken on a different aspect in late years with the development of new methods and ideas, and the result has been a major aid to ambitious children who have a desire to really attain in life. Stuyvesant School has virtually perfected a combined healthful student program… that assures development of mind and body, and preparation for any college devoted to the usual training or scientific study.

Stuyvesant students were involved in other equestrian activities, including hunter trials and riding in local foxhunts, and in 1934, they established their own hunt club. For years, Mr. King served as chairman of the Warrenton Hunt, and after graduating from the University of Virginia, Billy Wilbur returned to Stuyvesant as the riding instructor.

The large house where his mother lived served as the main building of the school until Mr. King could erect the frame classroom and dormitory building on the Winchester Road side of the property.

A letter on file at the Old Jail Museum from Mr. King to Malcolm Gordon, dated Feb. 9, 1918, reveals his thoughts about the school. At the time, he was recruiting Mr. Gordon to serve as assistant headmaster, a position he later accepted. “I am glad you are interested in Stuyvesant. My heart and soul have gone into this school, and I have no thought of leaving it for many years to come,” he wrote. “The South needs good schools. It was that, and the feeling that eventually I should be interested in establishing such a school, that caused me years ago to leave St. Mark’s … I turned to Warrenton, and to my own home, where untrammeled, I might work out my ideal.” 20

Top honor for many years was the engraved silver spurs contributed by Mr. and Mrs. George Sloane, given to the boy “…who had shown the greatest proficiency in riding, best knowledge of horsemanship, and greatest courtesy in the hunting field.” William Nelson “Billy” Wilbur (19132010), son of the aforementioned William F. and Jane Caroline Wilbur, won the silver spurs in 1932 while competing in the senior horsemanship division. Others in the division included Arnold Ladd and Arthur McMullen.

Wishing to return south and start his own boys’ school, Mr. King chose Warrenton for the site, and purchased the property from the Fletchers for $13,500. Stuyvesant School was opened in 1912 for students in grades 8-12, organized in six forms, after the British private school fashion.

Many of the boarding students were referrals from St. Mark’s School, where Mr. King had retained contacts, and a number of local boys attended as day students.

The shows were held on the open grounds across Winchester Street from the school. The Stuyvesant School Horse Show Association, consisting of alumni and other interested parties, including members of local foxhunting clubs, managed equestrian events.

Edwin B. King (1876-1950) founded the Stuyvesant School in 1912. Courtesy of the Fauquier Club.

“Mr. King has provided individual attention to the students enrolled. A faculty of eight instructors is devoted to the work of imparting knowledge and training to the limited enrollment of fifty students. Each afternoon, a group of the boys will be seen riding with Howard Fair, enjoying the healthful, wholesome American pastime and exercise of riding on a brisk steed.” Equestrian activities, athletics Indeed, equestrian activities were central to Stuyvesant during most of its existence, with stables down near the gymnasium. Starting in the 1926, an annual horse show was established, which at its peak attracted over 200 entries in almost 20 categories. Both boys and girls competed in several classes, and there was also an alumni class.

Athletics were not limited to equestrian events, and the school’s teams, called “The Flying Dutchmen,” often acquitted themselves well in competition. By the early 1930s, Stuyvesant had a very successful boxing team, fighting bouts with regional schools and boys’ clubs in a ring set up in the auditorium of the Warrenton High School on High Street. The proceeds were donated to local non-profit organizations, including the Warrenton Volunteer Fire Department. In one memorable meeting in February 1933, the Stuyvesant boys, coached by Joe Bateman, took on boxers from the Alexandria Boys Club and the Northeast Boys Club in eight tough bouts. Stuyvesant’s Joe George took first place in the 90-lb. class, as did Parke Longcope in the 85-lb. class. Starting in 1937, Stuyvesant also fielded a football team. Frank Sippley, a star player at the University of Virginia in 1929-31, coached the boys. Captain Warrenton Lifestyle

shows, dancing, food, and of course, a horse and pony show. Again, proceeds were given to local non-profits.

While young and inexperienced, in their first season the boys faced teams from Virginia Episcopal School (losing 12-0 and 26-0), Sidwell Friends (a 1912 loss), and the Landon School. A standout player early in the season, Capt. Marshall was injured and missed the final game, but Stuyvesant rolled over Landon, 33-0.

In the second gymkhana held in April 1936, winner of the children’s musical chairs on ponies was Patsy Downs, while Harcourt Lees was the winner while competing on foot. In the bareback riding competition, John Mason McClanahan took the top honor.

A Warrenton family with close and long-lasting ties to Stuyvesant School was Col. (1873-1940) and Mrs. Robert R. Wallach and their sons Robert Jr. (b.1916) Marshall (b. 1918) and Henry (b. 1920), and their daughter Hope (later Mrs. S. Prentiss Porter, b. 1924). The Wallachs moved from Washington, D.C. to Hopefield, not far from Stuyvesant, in 1924.

During the warm months, Mr. King and his staff took the students to a fishing camp on the Shenandoah River near Luray for recreation.

“One of the reasons my parents chose to live in Warrenton was the schools,” recalled Mrs. Porter. “They wanted their children to attend good private schools,

In addition to athletics, the school was involved with community outreach, hosting gymkhanas for several years. These events included sack races, pet

but be able to live at home. Warrenton offered Stuyvesant for the boys, and Warrenton Country School for me.” In addition, Col. Wallach’s nephew Richard (1903-1948) had graduated from Stuyvesant, and his niece, Edith Shepherd Wallach, was one of the few girls admitted to the school, staying for a year before going to Foxcroft. Another was Emily North King, who came back to her father’s school after a year at Oldfields School in Maryland. There was at least one Wallach boy at Stuyvesant in the years between 1924 and 1937, and during this time, there was interaction between the school and Wallach family. Mrs. Porter recalls attending dances at the school with her older brothers when she was ten years old. Later on, friendships she made there gave her an advantage over the other local girls at the Warrenton Country School, when they were allowed to socialize with the Stuyvesant boys. The Wallachs occasionally entertained the Stuyvesant students at Hopefield at wellchaperoned parties, and sometimes Mrs. Porter and her friends had unexpected encounters with the boys. Hopefield is located above Cedar Run, where the Stuyvesant boys had discovered “Blackwell’s swimming hole.” Horseback riding in the area, young Mrs. Porter and a friend stumbled on a group of boys cavorting in the water – skinnydipping. Seeing the girls cantering by, the boys dove for the deep water. Not happy at Warrenton Country School – with its strict rules and requirement that the girls speak French most of the time – Mrs. Porter

openly rebelled. “In fact, I hoped to be expelled, because I thought that Mr. King would take me in at Stuyvesant,” she recalled. “He had done so for my friend Jane Baldwin, but in my case, this was not to be.” Mrs. Porter completed her schooling at WCS, but after graduating, never came back. Her brothers’ experiences at Stuyvesant were all positive, but with outcomes as different as the boys were. Robert Wallach Jr. graduated from Stuyvesant in 1933, and went on to the University of Virginia. After college he started a banking career, which was put on hold while he served in the U.S. Army during World War II. Before his senior year, Marshall Wallach left Stuyvesant to attend a “cram school” in order to prepare for the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, where he graduated in 1939. In 1940, he married the former Elizabeth Wilbur, a niece of Mrs. E. B. King. After an eventful career that included fighting in Europe during World War II, he retired at the rank of colonel. “My brother Henry was the least motivated of the three, and was happy just to be a Stuyvesant student,” said Mrs.

Porter. “Finally, my father asked Mr. King if he didn’t think it was time for Henry, who was still a junior, to finish up.” Responding to the request, “Mr. King advanced Henry to the graduating class, where he was the only student that year… and as a result, the class valedictorian!” she recalled. “He began his valedictory address with, ‘As I look out into the faces of my classmates…’ and everyone broke out in laughter.” During World War II, Henry joined the Royal Canadian Air Force, and was sent to fight in North Africa and Sicily. In an odd twist of fate, the mechanic who worked on his airplane was a former classmate at Stuyvesant. After the war, Henry went into business. Reflecting on the two private schools, Mrs. Porter believes that Stuyvesant was much more a part of the community than Warrenton Country School. In addition to the different cultures the schools represented, the Kings and their staff were very involved in community affairs. Mr. King was elected president of the Fauquier Club in 1914, and was stuyvesant continued on page 24 Warrenton Lifestyle

Mrs. King was a member of the Warrenton Fire Department Auxiliary and the Warrenton Garden Club. Both were members of St. James Episcopal Church, where Mr. King was a vestryman. Changes comes to Stuyvesant Perhaps as a way to provide for the future, in 1937-38 Mr. King had the open property across Winchester Street used for horse shows and other events platted for a large subdivision. The land, consisting of about 80 acres, was divided into residential lots, as well as commercial parcels fronting on the new Warrenton Bypass. However, it would be nearly ten years before he would start selling lots in what was originally called “Stuyvesant Acres.” The first half of the 1940s was marked by the same challenges most Americans faced during World War

II, with occasional blackouts, rationing and manpower shortages. In response to the conflict, in April 1942, a Rifle Club was started at the school that was recognized by the recently established National Rifle Association. About 30 boys participated. Due to a serious heart condition,

in early 1945, Mr. King decided to retire. He worked out a lease-purchase agreement for Stuyvesant School with Clark C. Copp, Donald A. Williamson and Frank H. Limacher, effective Aug. 1, 1945. Mr. and Mrs. King moved from Stuyvesant to the small, rambling house across Winchester Street from the school, which Mr. King called “The Bowery.” Previously, Copp and Williamson were affiliated with the Elgin Academy in Elgin, Ill., and Limacher with a boys’ school in Homewood, Ill. The new corporation was called the Stuyvesant School Inc. At the time, 45 students were enrolled, and Williamson assumed the duties as headmaster. At the end of the first year, the corporation began the process to purchase the school.

Four boys graduated from Stuyvesant School in 1936: William Wirt Neale Jr., Newell James Ward Jr., Malcolm K. Smith Jr. and Parke D. Longcope.

When you head out on a Saturday afternoon drive in the beautiful Fauquier County spring, chances are good you’ll pass a baseball field. On the fields, children between the ages of 4 and 15 will enjoy the American pastime. The clink of the aluminum bats and the scuffle of sprints on the infield dirt remind of the game’s simplicity. Since 1960, organized youth baseball has been a staple of the county’s community. Now, 53-year old John Kemper and his wife Lisa are doing their part to keep it going strong. John serves as the president of Fauquier Babe Ruth Baseball. Lisa – his wife of 30 years – is the non-profit organization’s treasurer. “We hope to teach the rules of the game,” Lisa Kemper said. “How to respect others with no bullying; we want to teach kids how to lose as well as how to win.” Babe Ruth baseball first came to the county in 1991 when the 13-year old age group was certified. Two years later, the entire league was sanctioned by the organization based out of Trenton, NJ. The Kempers have watched their three children – William, Beth and John Edward – play on the county’s diamonds. Each of the three remains a part of the local sports community. William, a 29-year old deputy in Warrenton’s Sheriff’s department is the president of the Fauquier Umpire

Association. The association is contracted by Fauquier Babe Ruth. The eldest Kemper son knows first-hand how much effort and energy his parents put into the leagues. “They put in a lot of time in getting things coordinated,” he said. “It’s unbelievable the amount of hours they put in. “It’s an everyday thing and a day never goes by when baseball doesn’t come up.” The Kemper’s middle child Beth played baseball until the age of 12. Then, she played softball. Beth Kemper has also served as Fauquier Babe Ruth’s T-ball commissioner. John Edward Kemper was last to enter the batter’s box. He played until he was 12. Now, the 18-year old helps youngsters select proper equipment at Warrenton’s Olympia Sports store. Despite spending their fair share of time in the bleachers, John and Lisa Kemper are familiar with more than the games. The two county natives have been volunteers within the organization for over 40 years combined. In 2006, John assumed the role of president, and they haven’t looked back.

John Kemper knows that donation money is hard to find in today’s struggling economy. But, it doesn’t stop him from making sure there’s a baseball season. He pointed to local businesses such as Country Chevrolet when explaining the community’s help with funds. The car dealership helped the Kempers raise over $10,000 for this year’s season. Fauquier Babe Ruth estimated that around $100,000 are needed to help the organization run over a year’s time.

Despite the need for registration fees to run the 20-year old organization, the “I was commissioner of the league’s major Kempers try their best to keep costs and minor leagues before I took the job down for local families. of president,” John said. “I wanted to Registration fees range from $100 to make sure the kids’ fundamentals were $140 dollars for players. Due to a ‘No in sync.” Child Left Behind’ policy, any player Working together, the two have helped who can’t afford to register can apply for set an excellent precedent for local scholarships with Fauquier Parks and sports. During the offseason, they seek Recreation. sponsorships and donut sales to raise money for equipment, uniforms and field rental among other things.

The games are played on 18 fields in the county from H.M. Pearson Elementary in Catlett to four fields in Marshall. Between April and June, those diamonds are in high demand for the 500 participants. From September to November, and estimated 300 kids will play for the league’s fall teams. Teams play in five age groups determined by age; 4-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12 and 13-15. For an organization with no paid employees, volunteers make the wheels turn. “We have a good group of people who continue to amaze me with what they can accomplish,” John Kemper said of the 125-plus citizens who volunteer – including 15 board members. “We get kicked pretty hard at times and we try to do the best with what we have. “We want everyone to know we’re here to do it for the kids.” Barry Burke explained the importance the league serves for children in the area. His 12-year old son Bailey will play in the county and with Babe Ruth’s travel team this season. “It teaches the kids that if they’re going to get better at something, they have to work at it,” Burke said. Burke is an avid supporter of his son’s interest in baseball. He serves as the travel team’s commissioner. During the season, you can find him at a local diamond watching practice. On weekends, you might see his Ford truck – with a Babe Ruth sticker on the tailgate – traveling to Winchester or Spotsylvania on the way to a doubleheader. His commitment to helping his son succeed and learn at the ballpark carries on the family theme that the Kempers know so well. “For the most part, the important thing is parents being there with their kids,” Lisa Kemper said. “There’s nothing better than seeing their kid hit a home 30

run or a double and looking up to the stands to see their mom or dad.” Don Forgacs has coached his sons’ Babe Ruth baseball teams 13 consecutive years. He now coaches his son Phillip’s 13-15 year old group. “I like to see the look on their faces when they get something you’re trying to teach them,” the 46-year old Warrenton resident said. “Instead of sitting at the house, they’re getting exercise….to see them grow up is pretty neat to me. It inspires me to keep coaching.” Forgacs heaped high praise on John Kemper for his work as president. “John does all he can to be accommodating to everybody,” Forgacs said. “It’s a thankless job and he stays even-keeled and keeps things balanced. “Just as a coach, the parents see you on the field and think that’s all you do but there are hours before the game and sometimes after, too. You’re making phone calls and checking emails. There are probably six hours extra that people don’t know about and John is probably doing triple that (amount).”

Increased awareness about the league has helped grow the game. John Kemper mentioned a game of the week feature that highlights two teams every Friday night. Attendance for the special game grew during the season. This season, Fauquier Babe Ruth will continue to do the game of the week as well as many other events. The first big idea will be the opening day festivities on April 6 at H.M. Pearson. T-ball and rookie league players will fill the fields for the big day. Players ages 4-8 will take the field in excitement. Even after all these years, the Kempers will be excited too. “When you get out there and see those kids, we remember what we’re doing it for,” Lisa Kemper said. “It’s good to work alongside (John) and do it.” As for John Kemper, he’s ready to embark on another season of teaching youngsters how to enjoy America’s pastime. With a reference to Babe Ruth baseball’s namesake, he smiles when asked about opening day. “The Bambino himself said, ‘Play ball!’”

How does John Kemper do it? “It takes a special kind of person,” Forgacs remarked. Perhaps it takes two special people. The husband-and-wife duo continues to make an impact on and off the fields. For the first time in a few years, participation numbers are up. The Kempers estimate an increase of 30 registration forms this year.

Clinical Depression is a debilitating illness and one of the leading causes of disability in the U.S. Some of the symptoms might be constant fatigue or loss of energy, diminished ability to concentrate, lack of interest in former pleasures, feelings of worthlessness, hopelessness or helplessness, diminished sexual drive or a change in weight either up or down. There may be recurrent thoughts of suicide or death or a feeling that life is passing you by. While medication may help to stabilize the illness, cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy can help the sufferer gain insights and modify his/her thoughts and feelings.

The Hudson River

Muh-he-kun-ne-tuk, (the Great Mohegan) The river that flows both ways. by Dr. Robert Iadeluca

I have visited almost every state in the union but prior to coming to Virginia, had lived only in New York State. I have lived in the rural eastern end of Long Island, in Geneva on the Finger Lakes, in the rural outskirts of Albany and Syracuse, and even in the “Big Apple.” Yes, I know the state well and in coming to this area in 1980 was worried that it would not give me the joy New York State had furnished me for over 60 years of my life. New York, after all, has both urban and rural areas, mountains and flatlands, ocean front and lakes, and the separate four seasons with their different temperatures. To my extreme pleasure I found that Virginia had all the above and with little difficulty I settled into my new home. It furnished all the above, however, except for one major difference — the Hudson River. Virginia, with all its scenic rivers, has no equivalent to the mightiest river in the Eastern United States and, with all due respect to the Mississippi and the Colorado rivers,, the one with the earliest historical relationship to the formation of this great nation. It is the maritime gateway to New York City and was the gateway to the development of the American interior starting with its exploration by Henry Hudson in 1609. We are speaking of a river that travels 315 miles along almost the entire eastern state boundary from the Adirondack Mountains to New York City where it empties into the Atlantic Ocean. All rivers end ultimately at an ocean but the Hudson River has an intimate relationship with the Atlantic. It not only affects the ocean

March 34 2013

by flowing into it, it is in return affected by it. In what is known as the Lower Hudson extending as far north as Albany, the tide changes from north to south several times a day. It can be a dangerous river responsive to these strong tides which cause powerful currents making it difficult to navigate at certain times and locations. Because the lower Hudson is a tidal estuary, ice flows drift south or north leading to the Mohican name of the river, Muh-he-kun-ne-tuk, meaning “the river that flows both ways.” It is, indeed, a river with a strong personality of its own and many of my memories are connected closely with it, starting with the Lower Hudson as it empties into the Atlantic. I remember my father taking me to see the many activities at the docks in lower Manhattan. I saw and admired the bulging muscles on the many stevedores loading cargo ships. There were always ocean liners taking on or unloading passengers. We would tour the interiors of these sumptuous hotels on water. Shortly after graduation from high school I got a job delivering Bon Voyage fruit and flower baskets to passengers about to depart. I also remember a friend who was married to an Army officer and living on Governors Island taking me there on a Sunday to see the Army Post. Now administered by the National Park Service, this 172 acre gorgeously landscaped island only one mile from the tip of Manhattan has a peace and quiet entirely different from the boisterous New York City. One can sit there for hours and

enjoy not only the Manhattan skyline but the beauty of the Hudson. I remember my father taking me to Bedloes Island (now Liberty Island) and climbing as high as the crown of the Statue of Liberty where I could gaze over the extent of the Hudson and the Manhattan skyline. We would return back to Battery Park where hot dog stands gave us an opportunity for a picnic. Many years later I would take girlfriends of mine to Battery Park where we would sit and enjoy the sea breeze. I remember many, many years after that crying along with thousands of other soldiers as we passed under that wonderful statue after having been in combat for over two years. That night our ship anchored quietly in the Hudson all night long allowing me to look out at my familiar river and dream. I remember my father taking me on cruise ships along the Hudson River. Not only did they allow opportunities to see spectacular scenes as the ship progressed but afforded a curious little boy an opportunity to view through a glass enclosure the giant ship pistons as they battled the resistance of the water. One of the spectacular scenes was the New Jersey Palisades. These are a line of nearly vertical cliffs over 500 feet high and stretching for approximately 20 miles. Sometimes we would get off at Indian Point where there was a park with a swimming pool. He would sit by the side and watch me swim under water. I loved to swim under water. hudson continued on page 36

As busy as life near New York City may be, the river has much more to show us. I remember as I grew older numerous visits to West Point Military Academy 150 feet above the west side of the river. At that point the Hudson occupies a strategic location where the river makes a distinctive “5” curve. In 1778 soldiers created a 600-yard chain with two-foot links and positioned it across the Hudson from West Point to Constitution Island. The British never tried to run the chain. Following the definition that fjords, such as are found in Norway and other locations, are valleys which were eroded below sea level by glaciers and then filled by the sea after glacial melting, the Hudson Fjord near West Point meets this definition and varies from 175 to 216 feet deep. Further north on the west side of the Hudson River are the 4000-foot Catskill Mountains were I have often camped and once was almost caught in a forest fire. The mountains rise suddenly from the river. This is the location of the story of “Rip Van Winkle” written by Washington Irving, the first internationally acclaimed American author. As Assistant Director of Public Relations for the N.Y. State Department of Education located in Albany, I crossed the river daily on my way home. One crossing remains vividly in my mind. My position had been affected by the state budget being frozen. I was considering returning to graduate studies and remember saying out loud to myself: “Why not?” That affirmative answer to myself led to the doctorate I hold today. As we travel upstream, it is obvious that the river remains strong. We have gone approximately 200 miles and have over 100 to go. Along side the river we see the railroad tracks which have been paralleling us the entire trip and have not come to an end. The Albany railroad station is right next to the river. In 1807

Robert Fulton tested the strength of his steamboat. Clermont, against the strength of the river, taking 32 hours from New York City to Albany. Throughout this trip one encounters a series of remarkable bridges starting with the George Washington Bridge whose upper and lower deck sustain an annual traffic of over 50 million vehicles, past the Tappan Zee Bridge named for the Native American tribe which inhabited that area plus the Dutch word for wide expanse of water, and on to the Poughkeepsie Bridge which in 2009 was named the longest (1 1/2 miles) pedestrian bridge in the world. Almost all of these bridges are homes for the Federally protected Peregrine falcons, the fastest bird on the planet. Not to be ignored are the various tunnels tinder the river. The Holland and Lincoln vehicle tunnels, the PATH subway tunnel, and the Pennsylvania Railroad tubes were marvelous engineering feats but constructed at the expense of much human life. Above Albany is what is known as the Upper Hudson. Glens Falls is the major city on this part of the river and is the site of the Hudson’s confluence with the Mohawk river, its major tributary. It is also the area where, in 1825, the Erie Canal opened allowing Lake Erie to empty into the Hudson. Lake Tear of the Clouds in the Adirondack Mountains is considered the source of the Hudson. This small, unimposing lake probably has no conception of its rapid imminent growth as it moves toward the sea. Its quiet beauty, however, attracted Vice President Theodore Roosevelt to stop there following his climbing Mt. Marcy. While there he heard of the assassination of President McKinley. He hiked 10 miles down the mountainside, took a midnight stagecoach ride to the nearest railway station, and rode the train to Buffalo where in September 1901 he was sworn in as President.

In the mid-20th Century, many industrialists, not thinking of the environment, began to foul the river with sewage and other waste. Pete Seeger, singer and environmentalist, formed the Clearwater organization. It was my voluntary responsibility of handling public relations in New York City for the first Earth Day in April 1970, Seeger and I often worked together rousing the people to help return the river to its original natural clean state. Today the river is healthy and regenerating itself. In 1998 the Hudson River was named one of the fourteen American Heritage Rivers. The Hudson River travels in almost a straight line from its source to its meeting with the Atlantic Ocean. Virginia’s rivers are of a more meandering type, undoubtedly beautiful but lacking (in my obviously biased opinion) the majesty of the Hudson. Virginia’s waterways, however, furnish different recreational opportunities. In the western mountain regions of Virginia are plenty of whitewater rivers. In other rivers are almost year round opportunities for tubing, rafting, kayaking, and canoeing. Not to be forgotten is the wide variety of game fish including rock bass, striped bass, yellow perch and catfish. People’s lives are a series of chapters. I am currently living the final chapter(s) of my life in Virginia and thoroughly enjoying them. The above paragraphs will help my readers, however, to understand the powerful effect the Hudson River and its environs had on my earlier chapters.

The Power of Flowers

Even Dr. Oz is on this bandwagon…. proclaiming that energy healing/medicine is the wave of the future. In actuality, energetic methods of healing have been around since the beginning of time, but only pursued, contemplated and accepted by a few. In this new paradigm of looking for alternatives and new solutions to our growing epidemics of degenerative disease and health crises, the modalities for energy healing are expanding and opening. To begin to accept these ideas, one only has to realize and notice how many of our physical problems have been caused by stress and being out of balance either emotionally, psychologically and/or spiritually. Flower Essences were originally discovered and developed by Dr. Edward Bach, an English surgeon, bacteriologist, pathologist and homeopath in the 1930’s. Dr. Bach was a pioneer in understanding the

connection of our emotional selves to our physical health. He developed 38 flower remedies, which have been used and continue to be used successfully to treat the underlying emotional causes of diseases.**As a side note, one of my favorite visionaries, Prince Charles, has been using Flower Essences and homeopathy for years. Flower essences are the blossoms of plants prepared from a sun infusion in a bowl of water, then further diluted, potentized and then preserved with brandy. These vibrational preparations embody the distinct imprint, or energetic pattern of each flower species incorporating the use of life energies within the living organism. This vibrational method of healing can also be understood by accepting the concept of water memory (you can check out Masaru Emoto’s research for more information about that discovery). Along with self reflection, observation, kinesiology testing, Flower Essence resource books and/or possibly a skilled practitioner, the essences can be chosen. In fact, just selecting the essences can be a process of inner growth and awareness. I, personally, like to read the books and can easily identify my conscious issues. A few drops are applied under the tongue or mixed into water to be sipped throughout the day. Although people occasionally notice immediate shifts when taking Flower Essences, one needs to understand that perceived changes can be gradual. Taking the drops over time will build a strong and stabilizing influence in our overall state of well-being. Because vibrational energy is difficult to measure by scientific means, the medical community is not convinced that there is enough evidence to support the effectiveness of Flower Essences. Yet, the holistic community has embraced the use based upon the essences’ strong reputation of being highly effective and safe to use as an adjunct to your chosen health protocol.

In fact, they are so popular, that there are now many more holistically educated practitioners that have developed even more sophisticated versions of Flower Essences addressing our ever evolving complex emotional issues and blocks that come around with each new generation. Many, many years ago, when I was a young mother, my progressive mother, who is now all of 89 probably due to her diligent holistic health research and vitamin program, suggested that I try a Bach Flower combination remedy called Rescue Remedy. This remedy never gets too far away from me as a bottle lives in my purse, my car and my desk at work! Being a highly sensitive person, with my own version of issues, I have found over the years that these remedies have offered up incredible support to me during times of stress. As I discover new and more sophisticated selections of Flower Essences, I am compelled to commit to using them daily to discover, weed out and balance the myriad of complex emotional patterns that have been inherited and learned throughout a lifetime…..a neverending challenge that is enlightening and pleasurable with the support of these marvelous subtle helpers. You can find Bach Flower Essences at Whole Foods and The Natural Marketplace in Warrenton. The Natural Marketplace is in the process of adding Austrailian Bush Essences which we are finding, through research, to be very reputable, efficacious and powerful. We will have books and flyers on the subject to help you educate yourself. Perelandra, a local producer of essences in Jeffersonton, is another source of incredible remedies that can be procured via the Web. My advice….at the very least, get your bottle of Rescue Remedy and keep in mind that in order to fully accept and embrace a new concept, we need to do the research and have the experience … then we can form an educated opinion!

Fauquier Health

Pursues Partnership

with LifePoint Hospitals

The Fauquier Health Board of Directors announced on March 6 that it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to form a joint venture with LifePoint Hospitals®, a leading hospital company focused on providing quality healthcare close to home. The proposed partnership offers many potential benefits to Fauquier Health and the communities it serves by providing resources and support that will allow Fauquier Health to expand and enhance its services, invest in its facilities and new technology, and improve its efforts to recruit and retain needed physicians. LifePoint representatives visited Fauquier Health on March 12 to speak with employees and volunteers about the potential partnership. Bill Carpenter, LifePoint CEO, emphasized that all employees would retain their jobs, at the same pay grade and seniority. He said he wanted to lessen any anxiety staff might feel, so they can just continue to concentrate on caring for patients. “You all have a great hospital here. Just walking through the halls and seeing the smiling faces of the staff, I can tell you really love working here. We want to see that continue.” “This proposed joint venture with LifePoint is a very exciting development for our hospital and community,” said Marshall Doeller, chairman of the Fauquier Health board. “By partnering with LifePoint, Fauquier Health has an opportunity to maintain local ownership and an equal voice in the governance of our hospital and also gain new financial, operational and clinical resources that will help us better serve our communities and grow and prosper into the future. We are pleased 40

that LifePoint recognizes the value of patient-centered care, and will continue to support our very special culture.” The MOU is a non-binding agreement that authorizes Fauquier Health and LifePoint to move forward with the necessary steps to pursue the proposed joint venture. Following due diligence and a negotiation process, which will take place over the next few months, the parties would enter into a definitive agreement. The agreement would then be subject to review by the Attorney General of Virginia before being finalized. Under the terms of the proposed partnership, Fauquier Health and LifePoint

would share ownership and governance of the hospital, with LifePoint obtaining the majority ownership interest. Governance would be shared equally between Fauquier Health and LifePoint, preserving the community’s input into the strategic direction of the hospital and health system. “LifePoint is delighted to have been chosen as a joint venture partner for Fauquier Health,” said LifePoint Chairman and Chief Executive Officer William F. Carpenter III. “Fauquier is a great hospital with a demonstrated commitment to its patients, employees and physicians. We look forward to exploring this potential partnership partnership continued on page 42

Fauquier Health CEO and president Rodger Baker has been leading the health system since 1979.

LifePoint CEO Bill Carpenter meets with Fauquier Health employees and volunteers at a gathering on March 12. Among those learning about the potential joint venture are volunteers Barbara Scheulen and Joan Staiko, and Wellness Center employee Sara Freeman.

further and to examining how we can collaborate to further strengthen Fauquier Health and advance healthcare throughout this region.” The retained assets and proceeds from the transaction would eliminate Fauquier Health’s debt and allow for the development of a charitable foundation that would support crucial community health needs. Also, the new joint venture would become a tax-paying organization, providing an important source of new tax revenue to support the local economy. “After an exhaustive search process by our board, LifePoint stood out as the ideal partner for Fauquier Health,” said Rodger Baker, Fauquier Health President and CEO. “LifePoint shares our commitment to improving the health and well-being of our community, and is dedicated to ensuring that Fauquier Health remains an excellent place to work and come for care.”

Headquartered in Brentwood, Tennessee.

LifePoint’s Mission: Making Communities Healthier

Founded in 1999, and has grown to a leading hospital company with more than $3.5 billion in revenues.

LifePoint’s Vision: LifePoint wants every one of its hospital to be a place where:

Has a financial stake in 57 hospitals across the U.S., five of which are located in Virginia.

People choose to come for healthcare,

Employs 28,000 and partners with 3,000 physicians. LifePoint is the sole hospital provider in most of its communities. In 2011, LifePoint became the only private organization in the country chosen by the Department of Health and Human Services to be a Hospital Engagement Network in the Partnership for Patients initiative, a nationwide public-private collaboration to improve the quality, safety, and affordability of healthcare for all Americans.

Physicians want to practice, and Employees want to work. Five Guiding Principles: LifePoint was founded with five core guiding principles. Delivering high quality patient care Supporting physicians Creating excellent workplaces for our employees Strengthening the hospitals’ role in their communities Ensuring fiscal responsibility

Where We’ve Been: A Brief History of Fauquier Hospital The first hospital in Fauquier County opened its doors on February 26, 1925. It was located in a former residence at 32 Waterloo Street, Warrenton. Garner House, as it had been called, had been purchased by the Fauquier County Hospital Association for $14,000 from Mrs. Frances Garner Grayson in 1924. By the end of 1925, a total of 344 patients had been admitted to Fauquier County Hospital, as the facility had become known. There were 184 operations that year and 57 emergency treatments. Twenty-two babies were born there that year.

From 1926 through 1938, Fauquier County Hospital did rather poorly. The tiny non-profit hospital could not compete with other area hospitals. For lack of support, Fauquier County Hospital closed in 1940. But in 1941, a group of local physicians formed a for-profit corporation and purchased the old hospital with the goal of reopening it. Physicians’ Hospital, Inc., as it was called, reopened on February 13, 1942, and was successful. During the war years it remained full to capacity, and a 16-bed wing was added to handle growing demand. Physicians’ Hospital remained profitable until 1953, when once again it failed to stack up favorably against other larger hospitals. On January 29, 1954 its ten physician stockholders met and resolved to solicit offers for the sale of the hospital. Quickly a group of local citizens expressed interest in purchasing the hospital. In May 1954, the citizen group, headed by prominent local businessman and civic leader Tom Frost, signed an option to buy Physicians’ Hospital for $70,000.

Fauquier Hospital has continued to grow to meet community need. The most recent addition is an expansion of the interventional radiology suite, which was completed in March. 42

Frost would go on to become the driving force in the life of Warrenton’s hospital for the next 15 years. It was, to a great extent, his vision that brought about the Fauquier Hospital of modern times. The plan Frost and his group had was to quickly launch a community fund raising drive to collect $110,000, adequate funds to purchase, repair and equip the hospital. Everyone involved pledged that no one would be refused admission to the new hospital. partnership continued on page 44 Warrenton Lifestyle

Just ten days before the purchase option was to expire, the group was $32,000 short of its goal. With just three days left, the effort was still $26,000 short. But a wave of contributions came in during those last three days, and by the deadline, August 1, 1954, the committee had raised $112,000 -- $2,000 over the goal. In total, 1,090 donors gave to the campaign. On September 1, 1954, the new Fauquier Hospital Board of Trustees became stewards of the community’s new hospital. Once again, the hospital served patients, and once again, residents all too soon saw the need to expand its footprint and the services it could offer. On November 16, 1958, 2,500 people attended the dedication of a new Fauquier Hospital on Hospital Hill. The 71-bed facility featured air conditioning throughout, a 30-foot square lobby with an aluminum entrance canopy, and three distinct nursing wings. There was a radiology department, laboratory, solarium, doctor’s lounge and meditation room. Everyone agreed it was first class and state-of-the-art. The community took a real pride in the new building. It had been built with tremendous community support, and countless hours donated by an army of volunteer supporters. Other renovations took place over the years, but in 1999, Fauquier Hospital embarked on a new journey that created

the hospital residents know today. A five-story patient tower was built, featuring beautiful single-patient rooms. The expansion was created using Planetree, patientcentered principles, and was the beginning of a new era. The expansion of the Emergency Department to 33 rooms; 11 fourth-floor rooms to handle more medical and OB/GYN patients, a new Infusion Center and interventional radiology suite are more recent additions. Outside the hospital walls, Fauquier Health added a rehabilitation and nursing center, a wellness center, a wound healing center, and an assisted living facility, in addition to several physician practices. All have been guided by the same patient-centered principles, and all with tremendous community support. The story of Fauquier Hospital is the story of Fauquier County and its residents. The area has grown, and so have its healthcare needs. As the health system’s board of directors considers a partnership with LifePoint Hospitals, residents’ needs are still at the forefront. The community built Fauquier Health. Through an equal-share governance agreement with LifePoint and a new charitable foundation, the community will continue to guide its future.

growing needs. Fortunately, we have been able to examine our options from a position of strength; our balance sheet has never been better. We received national and regional interest offering a variety of opportunities. LifePoint has a financial stake in nearly 60 hospitals all over the country. We have spent the last few months talking with LifePoint executives and with folks who work at LifePoint hospitals; we have been encouraged as we’ve seen with our own eyes and ears that our missions are aligned. We have always felt that our community is essential to the success of the hospital, and the hospital is crucial to the success of the community. LifePoint sees that too. Employees’ jobs will be protected, services will continue – in fact, with LifePoint’s increased resources, we expect them to expand. Also, the creation of a multi-million dollar charitable foundation is an integral part of the plan so we can continue to support healthcare needs in our area. The principal of this foundation is representative of the time and investment this community has made since the hospital’s founding. Fauquier Health will be debt free, and the monies raised here will remain here. Another key point is that partnership with LifePoint will allow Fauquier

Carousel Frozen Treats

On the corner of Waterloo Street and West Shirley Avenue is a town landmark, distinct with a flowing fountain, music, bubbles, laughter, pink fluorescent lights and blue umbrellas. Carousel Frozen Treats has been the outdoor oasis for Warrentonians since 1999 when owners Carl Norskog and Dennis Bachetti opened the brilliantly pink and white building. Carousel’s patio entertains customers beginning in the spring, throughout the summer and into the fall providing a wholesome and jolly atmosphere for friends and family to enjoy.

Offering twenty delightful flavors of soft serve ice cream that gracefully top any traditional cake or waffle cone.

Twenty-five fun, quirky and tasty toppers will personalize your sweet creation with options like gummy worms, coconut, pralines, sprinkles, and Reese’s Cups. Their shakes and sundaes are craveable and worth the short wait in line. Popular shake flavors top the menu like vanilla, chocolate and strawberry, but they also offer marshmallow, hot fudge and Grasshopper – a mix of mint and Oreo. Mixing and matching the flavors on the menu make over three million terrific concoctions, ensuring that every customer will be satisfied. Reminisce in childhood memories over a delightful sundae. Try the caramel or raspberry, they also offer indulgent specialty sundaes like the Dirt and Worms with Oreo crumbs and gummy worms or the Turtle Sundae with hot fudge, caramel and pecans. Give the Potato Head sundae a try, topped with crispy potato chips, peanut butter and caramel. Can’t make a decision between a shake and a sundae? Order the Waterloo! It combines the best of both…a smooth milkshake on the bottom and a decorative sundae on top. Carousel’s Classics are anything but, these totally inventive and playful

creations keep customers coming back for more. The Funnel Cake Sundae, the Fresh Baked Strawberry Short Cake, the Twinkie Split and the Funky Monkey are just a few to add to your must try list.

Carousel offers smoothies made with real fruit too! Bananas, mangos, peaches, raspberries and strawberries are blended to make an energizing smoothie, smoothie float (with ice cream) or lava flow (a smoothie poured over any other flavor.)

They have perfected the all-American snack food like hot dogs straight from the fiery grill. A masterpiece with every mouthful, try adding chili, cheese or a combo for a flavor explosion. Check out the Hot Dog special with a drink and a side of boardwalk fries topped with sea salt for less than $6. The middle of the workweek brings a special treat – Corn Dogs!

Lifting Your


Boxwood Winery Oh the Taste of a Local Wine!

And now we head to Middleburg Virginia not for the horses or the foxes but for some very delightful wine, yes wine in Middleburg! The winery, Boxwood Estate Winery to be exact, is located right off of Rte 50 on State Rte 626. It is a beautiful state of the art winery set on 160 gorgeous acres of rolling hillside with 19 of those planted with vines. Boxwood makes red wine, only red wine, from the traditional Bordeaux grapes, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec, these are truly enjoyable red wines. The wines produced at Boxwood are a combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot which produces a Medoc style Bordeaux wine that is absolutely delicious. I took my bottle home, 2007 vintage, and immediately opened the bottle let it breathe for about 45 minutes while my lamb chops were cooking, I was in heaven at the 47 minute mark, wine in one hand and lamb at the end of my fork. Great fruit mostly blackberry with some cedar on the nose and a nice smooth plum and mixed berry coating on the mouth, very nice! The Topiary made up of Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec was also a delight and should be for the next 10 to 15 years, both wines will age nicely. The Topiary was a perfect complement to my grilled strip steak and coconut shrimp dinner! Boxwood Winery is the brainchild of John Kent Cooke and run by his Daughter Rachel Martin. Rachel has made quite the impression on the Virginia Wine industry with great wines, hard work and a terrific experience for all who visit Boxwood. You definitely want to add this winery to your tour! Look for Boxwood Winery on the Virginia Winemakers Tasting Series starting in March 2013 being held at the Iron Bridge Warrenton, where only Virginia wines are featured every Thursday night from 6:00pm until 8:00pm throughout the spring and summer. Bob Grouge has been a resident of Fauquier County since the fall of 1988 from his move from Vienna, Virginia. He has 21 years of restaurant experience and 12 years of automobile experience prior to becoming the General Manager of “The Bridge,� and currently now the owner as of October 2012. He has a full family being married to Kimberly with two children Kelsey and Grayson, daughter and son respectively. He also has 1 dog, Lily, along with two cats buried in the backyard and 1 fish in an empty hummus cup... buried with the cats! 54
