From The Publisher
Warrenton Lifestyle Magazine Begins Eighth Year This issue marks the beginning of our eighth year of publishing The Warrenton Lifestyle Magazine. We believe we have become an important part of building our community by providing history, resources and ideas from various sections of our region. Our advertisers love our market penetration and affordability and their ROI has helped fuel success locally.
Thank you to all the writers, photographers and readers who contribute their ‘slice of life’ each month. In addition, almost every one of our 20 person crew here at Piedmont Press & Graphics seems to be involved in our publications’ production. From ad sales to layout, design to editing, supplies to printing, binding to mailing and distribution to accounting, it takes a lot of talented people to bring you this magazine each month. Our chief mission at The Warrenton Lifestyle Magazine is to give greater exposure to our businesses and organizations to the people that live here, over half of whom are commuters, without promoting their competition from other tax bases. This month, we are pleased to present the winners in the seventh annual Best of Warrenton Awards. Almost 5,000 of you took the time to complete a ballot online to select this year’s favorites. Your responses are as
diverse as they are plentiful and we applaud the time you took to call out your favorites. People will debate the winners until next year. We’ve always considered that as ‘good’ because it means we have choices here in greater Warrenton, varying as much as our opinions. Less than half of the organizations or people that I chose on my ballot actually won. Some of mine didn’t even make the runners up list. Yet, the winners tell the community a lot about what we like and what may still be missing here. National chains, family stores, new shops and long-time landmarks were all winners again. A dozen ‘New-Winners’ were crowned this year. And, the Best All-Around Restaurant category received votes for a record 65 different restaurants, all located in Fauquier County. In no categories were the winners anywhere near unanimous. No one received over 50% of the votes. There were tightly contested races that came down to the final day. While some were great surprises, in our opinion, there were no real disappointments. So, whether you agree or disagree with the voting public, please take the time to discover some new local favorites for yourself. Let’s continue to explore our community together. We consider the Best Of list as just a “slice” of the thousands of wonderful businesses, places, and people we have to offer.
Thank you to the readers of The Warrenton Lifestyle Magazine for caring enough to vote. And the winners are….

When you’re at your best, so are we. Physical therapy is about making pain better. It’s about striving for consistent improvement. It’s about helping you be the best you can be. Reaching these goals with every patient is what motivates our physical therapists. Nothing satisfies our dedicated therapists more than achieving these goals, but there’s one thing that comes close: being voted Best Physical Therapy practice in Warrenton for the second consecutive year.
Thank you. 2012

Fauquier’s Own Mineral Water Resort Site of a Civil War Skirmish by Jennifer Scheulen and Mark Smith
Just seven miles southwest of the Town of Warrenton, along the Rappahannock River, is the site of one of the grandest resorts that defined the old Virginia Southern tradition--Fauquier Springs. This August, the Springs marks the 150th anniversary of the defining event from its role in the Civil War. Before the War Between the States, Fauquier White Sulphur Springs was the most celebrated mineral water resort in the country. In the late 1700’s, Captain Hancock Lee built a lodge near the sulphur water spring on the Rappahannock River. The location of the Springs was fortunate, as it was just a one-day stage coach ride from Washington, D.C., making it accessible to the entire Atlantic seaboard which was already served by railroads. Southern plantation owners would spend a month or two each summer with their families at “The Springs.” The fame of the sulphur waters and their miraculous healing properties for all sorts of ailments spread and people began to flock to the Springs. In the 1830’s, Lee’s son and a business partner purchased additional land totaling 3,000 acres and built a grand hotel, a semicircle of 16 cottages, a spring house and a variety of other buildings, walks and fountains to accommodate the growing number of visitors. The grand hotel, known as the Pavilion,
stood four stories high with majestic columns, a large dining room that would seat 400 guests and a 4,000 square foot ballroom that would host the finest orchestras in the country. Horse racing, medieval-style jousting tournaments, fox hunting, bowling, billiards, cards, and fancy dress balls were all provided for the entertainment of guests, including many celebrities of the time including Chief Justice John Marshall and Presidents James Monroe, James Madison and Martin Van Buren. To escape a cholera outbreak in Richmond in 1849, the Virginia Legislature moved their entire operations to the Springs. Chief Justice Roger B. Taney spent the summer of 1856 at the Springs--the same year he authored the famous Dred Scott Decision which became a catalyst for the Civil War. The Fauquier White Sulphur Springs resort was located directly in the center of the greatest concentration of fighting during the War Between the States. On July 21, 1861, Union Commander Brigadier General Irvin McDowell and his Army of Northeast Virginia moved against General Beauregard’s Confederate Army of the Potomac, beginning the Battle of First Manassas just 30 miles northeast of Fauquier Springs. During this first major battle, Colonel Thomas J. Jackson earned his famous nickname “Stonewall” as he inspired his Confederate brigade to withstand a strong, but inexperienced, Union attack. skirmish continued on page 10

Bridge construction at the Springs over the Rappahannock River, 1862
Stonewall Jackson led the Valley Campaign against Major General Nathaniel Banks’ Union forces in Winchester, Front Royal and Strasburg. Meanwhile, Confederate General Joseph Johnston resisted the advance of General McClellan’s Union forces as they made their way up to Richmond from the southeast. General Robert E. Lee replaced an injured Johnston and led his Army of Northern Virginia to many victories during the war.
Taking advantage of McClellan’s pause in his offensive advance to Richmond, Lee turned his attention to John Pope’s Union Army of Virginia in 1862. Lee divided his troops, immobilizing McClellan while sending Major General James Longstreet to reinforce Jackson’s Confederate forces along the Rappahannock River near Fauquier Springs. Lee arrived at Gordonsville on August 15, hoping to defeat Pope by cutting bridges along the river and then attacking before McClellan’s Ruins of The Pavilion, the grand hotel of the Fauquier White Sulphur Springs resort, army could arrive to reinforce it. To foil Pope, Lee needed to destroyed by fire in 1862 be able to cross the river even though he was cutting bridges. To that end, Confederates built several bridges themselves, including a key crossing at Fauquier Springs. Unfortunately, this bridge created a strategic target and there was a series of skirmishes. On the afternoon of August 25, 1862, while the Springs was occupied by Confederate troops, a shell struck the main Pavilion hotel at the Springs, which burst into flames and burned to the ground. In the days that followed, Jackson’s and Longstreet’s wings of Lee’s army marched and reunited at the First Bull Run battlefield in Manassas, leading to the Second Battle of Manassas on August 28, which became the decisive battle of the Northern Virginia Campaign.
Fauquier White Sulphur Springs Hotel, circa 1881
Cadets of Bethel Academy when it was housed in the Pavilion in the 1890s
The Springs lay in ruins throughout the remainder of the War and during reconstruction after the end of the War in April, 1865. In 1877, before becoming Governor of Virginia, Fitzhugh Lee, along with several other prominent businessmen and former soldiers, sought a charter to reincorporate the Springs and restore it to prominence as a grand resort with miraculous healing springs. On April 4, 1877, a charter was granted to form a jointstock company to purchase the Springs property and draft plans for a summer resort and sanitarium for the invalid. The plan called for a grand hotel with 100 rooms and modern improvements, as well as a 200 acre park and building lots. By the fall of 1878, the construction was under way. Architect John Hoffman designed an all brick hotel in the Scots baronial style with high ceilings, wide hallways and airy chambers to optimize ventilation. Modern features included gas, elevators, electric bells and indoor plumbing using sulphur water from the wells. Unlike the Pavilion hotel, the new structure was built along the Rappahannock River with the Blue Ridge Mountains as a backdrop. Cottages still standing from before the war were renovated and new cottages were built to form a semi-circle facing the hotel. By 1885, the new hotel and park were in full use. Roadways and exotic gardens were constructed to allow guests to ride through the park and enjoy the waters and scenery. The resort became a popular location for wedding receptions and was featured in the 1894-1895 edition of “Where to Stop—A Guide to the Best Hotels in the World.” However, the demand for construction of new cottages on the building lots was not

Present Fauquier Springs Country Club clubhouse
materializing as the investors had hoped, and by 1896, the appeal of the healing springs and the prosperity of the resort was waning. In September 1896, the company leased the entire property to the Bethel Military Academy for use by the cadets as housing and classrooms in order to try to increase enrollment. After only two years, the academy left the property and it once again returned to a resort. However, on November 14, 1901, a mysterious fire broke out in the top of the hotel and consumed the entire building. The property remained abandoned until the 1920’s when Bobby Winmill, a prominent stockbroker and social leader, purchased it. The Springs remained with the Winmill family until it was acquired in 1943 by the son of Walter Chrysler, the automotive entrepreneur. Walter Chrysler, Jr. envisioned a “sporting club” on the property and employed returning WWII soldiers for the renovation of several buildings including the Garden Cottage and the Bell Cottage. Colonial Williamsburg architect Washington Reed was brought in to improve the 1830’s “Warrenton House” for modern dining, and to oversee the redevelopment of the stables and carriage house to accommodate Chrysler’s many dances and parties. It was during this time that the new “pagoda” was erected over the springs. The Springs entered a new era in March of 1953 when the 228 acre estate with ten buildings was purchased by William Doeller. Doeller imagined the idyllic setting of the Springs as a golf course and country club. He divided the property to separate the existing residential structures from the grounds. In 1957, the golf course, designed and built by Reuben Hines, was opened on 223 acres. During construction, many Civil War relics were uncovered and donated to the museum at the Manassas Battlefield Park. The century-old stables and carriage house were converted into the clubhouse, the Monroe Cottage served as the Pro Shop, and the Warrenton House offered food service. Doeller sold the Springs to Brooke Vickery and the newly formed Fauquier Springs Country Club Corporation in October of 1965. Membership in the private club continued to grow,
Present Fauquier Springs Country Club gazebo, built in 2010
and a swimming pool and tennis courts were added. In April of 1971, the club was sold to the Sulphur Springs Investment Corporation, which was formed by existing members of the club. The clubhouse continued to expand, including the addition of modern baths, locker rooms, a kitchen and dining room, a ballroom and a grill. On May 15, 1990, tragedy struck the Springs a third time as a mysterious fire destroyed the clubhouse. The Pro Shop was spared and the golf course, swimming pool and tennis courts remained open as plans began immediately for the reconstruction of the clubhouse. A large ballroom, additional banquet facilities, two kitchens, a private dining room and a grand staircase were all designed to create the “country elegance” that had become synonymous with Fauquier Springs. The Warrenton House and the cottage that served as President Monroe’s summer home still stand near the property and look the same today as they likely did in the resort’s heyday. The original Springs source is marked by a foundation where a gazebo stood until it was destroyed by storms in 2009. Still visible is a portion of the “Grand Allee”, the original brick walkway on which guests took healing waters from the Old Gazebo site up the hill to the Pavilion Hotel. A new Gazebo, which remains the logo of the club, was rebuilt closer to the clubhouse in 2010, standing prominently on a hill as a symbol of pride, resilience and history. On Saturday, August 25, 2012, Fauquier Springs Country Club will mark the 150th anniversary of the Civil War skirmish that resulted in the Pavilion hotel burning to the ground at the Fauquier White Sulphur Springs resort. From its early days as a healing spa, vacation spot for presidents, and resort for Southern aristocrats, to its current status as a private country club, Fauquier Springs is proud of its central role in Fauquier social life.

Fauquier Health Ahead of the Curve Fauquier Hospital Leads the Way by Providing Critical Screenings for Newborns Eight out of every 1,000 newborns have some form of congenital heart disease, making it the most common birth defect. If the condition is not detected before the baby leaves the hospital, critical congenital heart defects (CCHD) can result in sudden death or require emergency surgery in the first few days and weeks after birth. Understanding the importance of early detection, Fauquier Hospital instituted a new screening for CCHD last November. Virginia Gov. McDonnell recently issued an executive order directing the Virginia Department of Health to develop a plan for implementing statewide newborn screening for CCHD in hospitals. Fauquier Hospital provides a perfect example for other medical facilities. Amy Powers, RN in Fauquier Hospital’s Family Birthing Center, has been involved in the project from the beginning, reviewing the research and working with experts at Children’s Hospital in Washington, D.C. to
All babies born at Fauquier Hospital’s Family Birthing Center are screened for congenital heart defects after the first 24 hours.
bring the screenings to Fauquier. She said, “We saw that other states were requiring the screening, and when we looked at the research, it was overwhelming. With support from our administration, clinical staff and pediatricians, we decided to go ahead and make it part of our standard of care.” The Fauquier Hospital’s Family Birthing Center screened 442 infants between November, 2011 and May, 2012. Powers said that the key to the program’s success is an ultra-sensitive pulse oximeter that substantially reduces false positive readings; the pulse oximeters cost about $3,000 each. “Because the Massimo Pulse Oximeter we use provides very accurate readings, pediatric cardiologists are called in only when necessary, easing the process for pediatricians, heart specialists and the hospital,” she said. The non-invasive test is administered at the same time as regular newborn hearing screenings, takes 30 seconds to do, and has become a seamless part of Fauquier Hospital’s routine. The pulse oximeter is placed on the baby’s right hand and on one other extremity. It measures the amount of oxygen in the baby’s blood. If infants do not pass with a healthy percentage the first time, they are given the test again an hour later and if necessary, an hour after that. If a child fails the screening three times, the pediatrician is contacted and usually, a pediatric cardiologist is consulted. So far, eighteen babies have had to be rescreened once and one a third time, but all have passed within the required time.
OB/GYN Wesley Hodgson, M.D., says that the new screening Fauquier Hospital has put in place will detect heart defects in babies that don’t present any symptoms.
Dr. Wesley Hodgson, OB/GYN with Fauquier Health OB/GYN, says that congenital heart disease is discovered prenatally, through ultrasound, only 23 percent of the time. “Parents think these kinds of birth defects can always be detected through ultrasound, but even though ultrasound technology has come a long way, CCHD is usually found after the baby is born. “It’s a very common birth defect. Examination of a newborn by a pediatrician reveals the problem about 50 percent of the time, when the child has other symptoms. The screening that the hospital began doing in November will help us to find the defect in babies that present no other symptoms.”

Warrenton Assembly of God
CHURCH AS A FELLOWSHIP
The Assemblies of God was born out of the Azusa Street revival at the turn of the Twentieth Century. It was during this time that many people were blessed with the Pentecostal experience of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit as mentioned in Acts 2:1-4. This gift is available to any believer and empowers the person to become a witness for the LORD Jesus Christ. This is the eighteenth in a series of articles about local churches and houses of worship. The purpose is to introduce you to the distinct features of each congregation, their philosophy and atmosphere. We believe that churches, temples, synagogues, etc are some of our best community centers. As you read about them each month we hope you will find one that interests you and your family. This month, we take a look at Warrenton Assembly of God. 16
The Bible is foundational to everything they believe, preach, teach and practice. Though heaven and earth will pass away God’s word will live forever. The unchanging instrument of the Holy Spirit and our infallible guide, God’s word is the authority for their faith and practice. They believe Jesus… God who became man is the Redeemer of lost humanity the Savior of the world. He gave his life to redeem mankind from sin. Only through Him do they have peace with God. They believe Jesus rose from the dead, and whoever believes in Him can have everlasting life. He is presently preparing a place for us and He has promised to come again for us so they can be with Him for eternity.
They depend on God’s power because our mission depends on miracles. They know that just preaching and publishing the message are not enough. Hearts must be opened, lives must be changed and church must be established. God Himself can only accomplish this. The Holy Spirit imparts gifts and abilities to God’s messengers and the same Holy Spirit who inspired God’s written Word, illuminates its truths to the minds of hearers and opens their hearts to respond to its message. They rely on the Holy Spirit to give life to the message they preach and to cause growth from the seed they sow. The Spirit convinces of sin, brings assurance of sins forgiven, imparts peace that passes understanding and guides us into all truth. assembly of god continued on page 18

Their mission, through the power of the Holy Spirit, is to seek and save those who are lost, teach them to obey God’s Word, equip the Saints for service, build loving and accountable relationships and worship God through the LORD Jesus Christ.
Pastor Hurley R. Shortt and his wife Bonnie
This statement recognizes all three persons of the Godhead. The mission of the church is fivefold namely, evangelism, discipleship, ministry, fellowship and worship. Everything the church seeks to do is accomplished through one of these purposes. First, the church is evangelical in that it accomplishes one of the purposes for existence through evangelism. Jesus Christ came to this world to “seek and save those who are lost (Luke 19:10), and forgive people of their sins (Matthew 1:21).” Jesus is God’s answer for mankind’s sin. This purpose is accomplished through personal and corporate evangelism by reaching out to others and through the efforts of missions, both foreign and at home. Secondly, discipleship is accomplished through preaching and teaching the Word of God. “Without faith it is impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6)” and “faith comes by hearing by the Word of God (Romans 10:17).” Every born-again believer has a spiritual gift with which to accomplish ministry. At this church, every person is encouraged to become involved is some type of ministry and use their gifts to build-up the body of Christ. The church is a fellowship (Acts 2:42) and as such, each person is encouraged to build loving and accountable relationships with fellow believers. This is accomplished through various church activities. Church picnics, fellowship dinners, workdays, mission trips are all designed to promote fellowship. As believers, they all are admonished to worship God. This is accomplished through public worship services and encouraged through private daily devotions and quiet time. Each Sunday the church meets for worship and participants are encouraged to sing and praise God for who He is and the blessings that He provides. The members seek to fulfill the Great Commission of Matthew 28:19, by 18
Easter Sunrise Service
Praise & Worship Team
providing the main worship service on each Sunday morning starting at 10:45 am. A mixture of traditional and contemporary praise singing is presented and everyone is encouraged to worship the LORD. The Prayer Partner Team, led by Lynn Vinson is available to pray for those who have needs. The Holy Spirit provides the Gifts of the Spirit as He directs. People are healed and miracles are experienced as the Holy Spirit provides the Gift. Pastor Hurley R. Shortt usually presents a sermon from a selected passage of scripture from the Bible. At the conclusion of the service, an altar time is provided for those who desire to make a dedication of salvation in the LORD Jesus Christ. The ordinance of Holy Communion is usually held on the first Sunday of each month and is open to all born-again believers. Water baptism by immersion is provided for those who receive salvation and desire to follow the LORD to fulfill all righteousness. The church participates in various community activities. Pastor Hurley serves as a Volunteer Chaplain at Fauquier Hospital. Following a funeral, a meal is usually provided for the family experiencing the death of a loved one.
They participate in providing Backpacks to schoolchildren in Fauquier County. The church presents a community Sunrise Service at Bright View cemetery each Easter Sunday morning. Mission trips have been conducted in Haiti, Ghana and the Sioux Indian Reservation in North Dakota. The Church Prayer Partners are intercessors that have a heart for prayer and people. They have a coordinator with nine Prayer Partners. This volunteer group covers the pastors and their spouses in prayer every day. Each Sunday service they administer prayer for any one in need. Two prayer events are scheduled during the year, a Prayer Partner Breakfast in the spring and a fall day away retreat. The church believes and practices the scripture that says, “The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.” James 5:16 In February 2012 children’s Pastor Debbie Gillispie along with her husband, John, partnered with lead Pastor, Dr. Hurley Shortt, and the leadership team of Warrenton Assembly to launch a children’s ministry, now known as KidsKonnection.

Mega Sports Camp
Prayer Partner Ministry
KidsKonnection utilizes relevant, age appropriate methods to meet the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of children of all ages. Currently KidsKonnection meetings are held on Sunday mornings at 10:45 am. The mission of KidsKonnection is three fold. 1. Connect
kids to Christ by incorporating sound Biblical doctrine into each weekly service, and providing opportunities for children to relate personally to Jesus Christ through prayer and worship. 2. Connect kids to the Church by
encouraging participation in weekly services, providing opportunities to use the gifts given by the Holy Spirit in a safe, nurturing environment as they seek to fulfill the role in the Church that God has designed for each member. 3. Connect kids to Community through
raising awareness of the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of diverse people groups. Monthly Boys and Girls Missionary Challenge services encourage children to provide financial and prayer support for Christian missionaries around the world and in their own neighborhood. 20
KidsKonnection has a vision to continually grow as children share with their friends and family the love of Christ experienced in their own lives. The first childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outreach was conducted the last week in June. Mega Sports Camp 2012 took place in the evening hours on the church property. Kids enjoyed basketball, soccer, or kickball & side walk chalk each night for six consecutive days. The sports coaches shared their knowledge and encouraged participants to improve in their respective sport while huddle coaches shared true inspirational stories of athletes that have overcome difficulties. Teamwork, perseverance, sacrifice, respect and strategy were principals demonstrated by the volunteer staff of Warrenton Assembly throughout the week. The week concluded with Mega Sports Olympics. This fun filled evening included an obstacle course race, awards, music, and food.
Future 2012 plans for KidsKonnection include a fall back to school bash, Thanksgiving community service project, Christmas production and the launch of boys and girls weekly clubs.

step to a lean body ood Habits
It’s natural to set goals for one’s self, to aspire to make positive changes that will enhance one’s health and wellbeing. Whether the goals are lofty or simple, they are the “outcome” of a process. If you think about it, it is a process that involves developing good habits, which over the years pave the way for you to achieve your personal goals. These good habits empower you to be successful, productive, and confident. And amazingly, most of the time you are performing these habits on autopilot. I call it “habitual autopilot,” and it’s a very good thing. Let me explain…. Think back to when you first started living independently. It took time and effort to learn how to manage life outside the comforts of home with mom and dad. You had to work hard to develop the good habits needed to be successful living on your own. But as time went on, the behaviors that felt like hard work became habits, and you eventually incorporated them into your daily routine. When you stop and think about it, getting ready for your busy day is quite a process. Amazingly, most of the 44
time you are not thinking about all the planning and preparing it takes to make your day run smoothly. It means you’ve incorporated a whole lot of helpful habits that come naturally, and help to ensure your day is a success. As you’ve added new responsibilities and activities to your life, each has required incorporating more new habits. Developing new and helpful habits is never easy in the beginning. No doubt, you’ve made mistakes, and made adjustments, but eventually new behaviors have become good habits. Slowly but surely, what once felt new and awkward, is now done on habitual autopilot. You just do it, and you do it really well! Do you ever wonder why it is we sometimes can make huge changes to meet our health and fitness goals, and other times we get stuck? Ever wonder why sometimes we get bogged down in the process struggling to establish the good habits needed to achieve our goals? And we all struggle to break from the not-so-productive habits that interfere with meeting our health and fitness goals. So how do we make the shift to good habits, and to the habitual autopilot that helps us meet our goals?
First things first…identify your motivation. Make sure you have a compelling reason to achieve your goal. Make it personal for YOU, and strong enough to support you through the process. Once you identify your motivation for change, the second part of the process is two simple steps toward achieving habitual autopilot: ● The new habit has to be easy
enough to embrace, and
● The habit has to advance your goal/
Here are a couple of specific suggestions: ● Tweak your environment-this is about
making the right behaviors easier and the wrong behaviors a little bit harder. Example: Stock your kitchen with foods that are aligned with your goal. Remember your kitchen makeover in Step One to a Lean Body? ● Preload your decisions-make your
decisions in advance and prep for success. Example: Instead of committing to “going to they gym” four times per week, it might be easier to preload this outcome by packing your gym clothes in your car the night before (you are setting yourself up for success) or offering to pick up a co-worker or friend on the way (now you have not only made a commitment to yourself but to someone else as well!) ● Be prepared to fail. Just as mentioned
above, habits are developed over time and tweaked along the way through our failures. It is critical to understand that failure is a natural part of the change process. Change is rarely a straight line from beginning to end. When you embark on a new process, you start out with great hope and optimism. As you start to implement your process, your plan will likely get detoured a bit and you will likely feel discouraged. Remember it can be hard to develop new habits. ● Stay the course, build momentum,

The National Championship
Country Music Contest
Part 1: Warrenton Jaycees’ fundraiser gains national attention by John T. Toler For three decades, the local Jaycees put Warrenton “on the map” with their National Championship Country Music Contest. During its lifespan (1951-1981) the event provided music fans with something unique and special, while creating an opportunity for the young men in the organization to put into practice lessons in leadership and organization central to the Jaycee mission. In addition to raising money for the Jaycee’s Christmas Toy Workshop and other charitable projects, the event brought musical talent to Warrenton for an intense two-day competition. Almost from the start, talent scouts watched the competitions, and a number of significant careers in country music had their start in Warrenton.
Remarkably, the National Championship Country Music Contest (NCCMC) was nearly as old as the Warrenton Chapter of the Jaycees, which received its charter in early May 1951. The list of 30 charter members reads like a “Who’s Who” of Warrenton of the day: Luther Lee Allison, Dr. Bob Anderson, Walter Arrington, Clint Burdette, Wallace Brown, Dave Crandall, Johnny Crupper, John Cutting, Leo Carrico, Ray Davis, Henry Decker, Daniel Desmond, Bill Elgin, Thad Fletcher, Gene Garrett, Maston Harris, Johnny Johnson, Dr. Jim Hodgkin, Arthur Kelly, George Kyle, Wilbur Moffett, D. Harcourt Lees, Charles Moser, Harvey Pearson, Wallace Sanders, Earl Straw, Fred Wilson, Rev. J. Richard Winter and Dr. Gelfer Kronfeld. The first president was Tony Walker. Sponsored by the Alexandria Jaycees, the Warrenton Chapter received their charter from David White of Richmond, president of the Virginia Jaycees. “The primary purpose of the Jaycees is civic improvement by constructive action,” said Mr. White. “The secondary purpose is the training of young men in community responsibilities.” Charter member Harvey Pearson recalls that the local chapter remained relatively small in the early years, with an emphasis on the quality of the membership. The process of retiring members at age 36 (as “Exhausted Roosters”) was strictly observed. The members of the new chapter quickly started working on their first fundraiser, and by mid-July came up with a plan to hold a “Hill Billy Music Festival,” at the Warrenton Horse Show Grounds on the weekend of Aug. 4-5, 1951.
This is the logo used by the Jaycees throughout the NCCMC.
the event, “… arranging the financing and serving in an advisory capacity, as well as providing assistance as needed,” according to contemporary newspaper reports. The Jaycees were responsible making all of the arrangements for the event, as well as publicity, refreshment sales, preparation of the event site, scheduling presentations, ticket sales and other details. Profits were to be split 50-50, and would represent the first income for the Warrenton Jaycees chapter. Committee chairman for the event was Johnny Crupper, a salesman at Tom Frost Ford-Mercury in Warrenton. “The first thing Johnny did was to call on Connie B. Gay of ‘Radio Ranch,’ Arlington station WARL-AM,” wrote Tony Walker in the November 1951 edition of The New Dominion, a publication of the national Jaycee organization. “The next thing anyone knew, the project had developed from a local square dance event into a national country music event.” Mr. Gay served as the master of ceremonies, and his contacts and experience proved central to the success of the premier event. It is remembered that it was Mr. Gay who strongly recommended that the name be changed from the “Hill Billy Music Festival” to the “National Championship Country Music Contest.” For his involvement, any profits would be divided equally between Mr. Gay, the Jaycees, and the AGW. “Surprise special attractions” arranged by Mr. Gay were promoted, along with “…competitions for local bands and instrumentalists – banjo pickers, guitarists and vocalists – and opportunities to win prize money totaling more than $1,000,” according to the Jaycees. The competitions

were open to everyone, and no entry fee was charged. Prizes were awarded based on “popular applause,” and the decisions of a panel of judges headed by James R. Denny of Nashville, of the “Grand Ole Opry” radio show. Preparing the Warrenton Horse Show Grounds for the contest, Jaycees built a bandstand in the middle of the show ring, and devised a seating plan. Working with Mr. Gay and his administrative assistant, Miss Jane Trimmer, they came up with the order of competition categories and schedule of announcements. Members of the Warrenton Volunteer Fire Company assisted with parking and refreshments, and it was decided that each Jaycee would be given a specific task or responsibility, which he would handle throughout the contest. With everything in place, Mr. Gay promoted the festival on WARL-AM up until the weekend of the event, and on Saturday morning of the contest weekend, broadcast the “Town and Country Show” from the Tom Frost dealership. By all accounts, the first NCCMC was a huge success, with 8,000 spectators and musicians coming from as far as Cheyenne, Wyoming to participate. Local groups did well, with Fauquier County’s Free State Ramblers tying with the Georgia Boys of Washington, D.C. for first place in the musical group category. The square dance team assembled by Vincent Jacobs of Warrenton made it to the 50

finals, but ultimately lost to the semi-pro Saints and Spinners of Rockville, Md. The reputation of the NCCMS immediately began to spread, attracting the interest of country music fans and performers up-anddown the east coast. In 1952, the Jaycees were presented with an interesting problem. Johnny Wise, of Washington, D.C. asked if he could bring his horse, named “Bob White,” to compete. When told there would be no animal acts, Mr. Wise replied that Bob White played the guitar. Finding nothing in the rules prohibiting animal musicians, the committee allowed Mr. Wise and his horse to enter. They performed for an amused crowd, with “Bob White” plucking the strings of a guitar with his teeth, but man-and-horse did not place among the finalists. The 1953 NCCMC was particularly notable for the fact that the Free State Ramblers took first place in the Five-String Band category, and attendance reached 10,000 fans and performers for the first time. Harvey Pearson was the president of the Warrenton-Fauquier Jaycees in 1954, and by then, Connie B. Gay had arranged for Jimmy Dean and his Texas Wildcats to appear at the contest – a real draw. A young singer from Winchester named Patsy Cline competed in the vocal category that year, winning first place and later joining Mr. Gay on the Town and Country Show. After putting on successful contests for three years, the Jaycees knew what it took to get ready. Mr. Pearson recalls an incident that showed how everyone worked together to get the job done.
“It was Friday night about 2 a.m. and a man pulled into the Horse Show Grounds. “He said he was performing the next day but couldn’t get a room, and asked if he could park his car and sleep there,” said Mr. Pearson. “Knowing how long I was going to be tied up over the contest weekend, my wife Dorcas had gone to visit friends. So I told him he could stay at my place, which he did. “It turned out that that my houseguest was Hoyt “Slim” Morrison, of Ednor, Md., who went on to win first place the male vocal category,” Mr. Pearson recalled. “Unfortunately, he was later killed in an auto accident.” Contest Continues to Grow To encourage participation in the NCCMC, members of the Warrenton-Fauquier Jaycees went “on the road” to encourage other Jaycee chapters to enter contestants from their communities, which they offered to pre-screen. Mr. Pearson remembers heading south with Wallace Brown to judge the talent assembled by the Lynchburg Jaycees. “Of course, we knew nothing about country music,” he said. “Winning performers were given a brown, one-gallon ‘moonshine jug’ which allowed them to compete in the contest without having to go through the audition process.” The 1955 NCCMC was held Aug. 7-8, and saw attendance at the NCCMC at 8,500

fans and contestants, down from the year before due to rain on both days. “At least we broke Fauquier’s drought with the downpour,” according to one optimistic Jaycee. Again, Connie B. Gay again brought Jimmy Dean and the Texas Wildcats to perform, and Sally Starr – a popular television hostess who had a children’s show on WFIL-TV in Philadelphia – promoted the event on her show. Miss Starr also chartered a bus to bring fans from Philadelphia to Warrenton and back for the contest.
Country music promoter Connie B. Gay was instrumental in making the National Championship Country Music Contest truly ‘national.’ Rountree (1911-1999) was the first (and only female) moderator of the popular Meet the Press public Affairs program, and later publisher of Know the Facts magazine.
On the local scene, Rev. J. Richard Winter and several Fauquier County dancers and musicians visited television station WTTG (Channel 5) in Washington, D.C., on Friday afternoon, Aug. 6, to talk about the contest. “…and Jimmy Dean was there!” recalled Rev. Winter recently. As in prior years, on Saturday morning Connie B. Gay hosted a three-hour radio program from Tom Frost’s dealership.
Participants at the 1955 contest ranged in age from vocalist Gary Baker, 5, of Washington, D.C., to fiddler Emil “Pop” Larson, 70, of Fargo, N.D. Kenny Cummings, 13, of Whitehall, Md., was one to the contestants “discovered” by the Jaycees after winning the local competition in Annapolis, Md. He would later be signed to appear on a country music show that was broadcast by 40 television stations.
Other outreach efforts included hosting 20 Washington, D.C. and Virginia newspaper columnists and writers on Saturday night at Martha Rountree’s estate north of Warrenton. It is remembered that Miss
Also present at the 1955 contest were Col. Joseph Goetz, who was in charge of forming talent tours for U.S. troops overseas, and Hope Miller, talent scout for Ted Mack’s Amateur Hour.
Among the popular musicians performing at the NCCMC during the 1950s and 1960s were (from left) Marvin Carroll, Jimmy Dean and Roy Clark. Courtesy of Duane Thompson. After seven years at the Warrenton Horse Show Grounds, it was determined that the National Championship Country Music Contest had grown to the point that it needed to be held outside of town. The contest moved into a new era when it was held for the first time at Lake Whippoorwill, off Route 605 north of Warrenton, in August 1958. Part 2, to be published in September, deals with the years at Lake Whippoorwill, the many people involved, and the final year of the contest.

First Friday Rock Concert Here’s a short quiz: The Piedmont Symphony: a. Is an enduring, creative outlet for musicians and the community b. Is the premier orchestral ensemble of the Greater Piedmont region c. Rocks Old Town Warrenton is: a. A well-preserved and vibrant 200-year old historic site b. An exciting place where dozens of events take place each year c. A lively exuberant Mecca of unique shops and fine dining. The correct answer to both questions is (d) All of the Above. And on Friday August 3, the Piedmont Symphony Orchestra (PSO), in collaboration with the Partnership for Warrenton Foundation, will show you why, presenting an outdoor version of its soldout rock symphony concerts. And best of all, it’s free. “We are very excited about the tremendous draw for Old Town Warrenton that this concert promises to deliver,” said Jennifer Heyns, Executive Director of the Partnership for Warrenton. Glenn Quader, PSO’s conductor, began his career as a bass guitarist, playing with rock groups all over the world. Eventually, realizing he couldn’t continue both travelling
and pursuing a career as a conductor, he reluctantly gave it up. But rock remained as his first love, hovering in the back of his mind, and two years ago he decided to give it a voice and presented Warrenton with an entirely innovative “Rock-Symphony” concert, Nights in White Satin. The concert sold out, playing to a stomping cheering standing room only audience. This past June he repeated the venture in a performance called Floating World, with the same success. On Friday, August 3, as a special gift to the community, the PSO will present a combination of the two performances at 7:00 PM on The Fauquier Bank’s Plaza. Dedicated to promoting and preserving Old Town Warrenton, the Partnership for
Warrenton organizes special events on the first Friday night of each month from May through October. During these events, Main Street is closed to traffic while shops remain open late with open houses and specials. There are music, artists, entertainment and activities for the entire family. Main Street bustles with shoppers, diners and fun. Each month offers something different for all ages. Now the Partnership has joined forces with the PSO in what is anticipated to become an annual event. The program will include selections by The Beatles, Elton John, David Bowie, Prince, Chicago, and a lot more. Internationally and nationally famous musicians, like two-time Grammy winner guitarist David Cabrera, drummer Sammy Sosa, vocalist Kaila Parker, Vincent Parrish, Lyle Muncy, Jackson MacInnis, Ben Stivers, and former PSO president and Warrenton native Tom Tucker, will star. “This is going to be huge,” said Tucker. “Nothing this big has ever hit the Town of Warrenton.” The PSO is grateful to the Fauquier Bank for their continuing support and help with this event. For more information, call Jennifer Heyns of the Partnership for Warrenton at 540-349-8606, or visit the PSO website: www. PiedmontSymphony.org.

Return To Fauquier County
Fauquier County is again playing host to the Northern Virginia Senior Olympics this September. Fauquier will be the site for two of the 30th annual NVSO’s athletic events. The County is hosting the 10 and 20k cycling time trial bike races, as well as the volleyball competition, with the cycling time trials being held at the Northern Fauquier Community Park in Marshall on September 16th, and the Volleyball competition on September 22nd, at Kettle Run High School in Nokesville, Fauquier County. The NVSO is a competition for senior citizens, 50 years old and above. There are 26 competitive events ranging from track and field, swimming, golf, and tennis to indoor table game competitions in scrabble, cribbage, and Mexican Train dominoes. It’s sponsored by the Counties of Arlington, Fairfax, Fauquier, Loudoun, and Prince William as well as the cities of Alexandria, Fairfax and Falls Church. All contestants must reside in one of these jurisdictions in order to participate. The entry fee is 12 dollars and athletes may enter as many events as they wish on the single fee.
This is the second year that Fauquier County has held a cycle race for the Northern Virginia Senior Olympics. In 2011, the inaugural race was held at Vint Hill. This year, due to the popularity of the 10k cycle race, a 20k event was added. Melissa Nester with Fauquier County Parks and Recreation and NVSO Committee, is the event coordinator for this year’s cycling and volleyball venues. Former 1997 Virginia Commonwealth Games cycling champion, Chuck Williams is the Fauquier NVSO committee chair for the two cycle races. Williams, Nester and a local volunteer staff of about 15 people are working to make the 2012 races a success. Clayton Lescalleet of the Parks and Recreation Board noted, “The Department is excited to be able to make these contests available to Fauquier County residents. While the focus of the program is to promote a healthy lifestyle, which is a primary goal of the Department, the events also offer great opportunities to make new friends. We especially encourage Fauquier residents to take advantage of two wonderful opportunities hosted by Fauquier
County and held in the County - volleyball and bicycling.” Last year’s NVSO 10k bike race at Vint Hill hosted about 40 male and female contestants in the 50 to 80 year old age categories. Both Nester and Williams say they are optimistic about seeing the entries for both cycle racing and volleyball to at least double over 2011. The 2012 Northern Virginia Senior Olympics begins a two week run on September 15th with opening ceremonies at the Thomas Jefferson Community Center in Arlington. The opening ceremonies will include the NVSO torch lighting. Following the opening ceremonies, the two week event kicks off with running competitions. On Sunday, September 16th the NVSO bike races will be held in Marshall. Registrations for the NVSO are being taken now, either on-line at www.NVSO.org or by picking up a registration form at any Fauquier County Parks and Recreation Community Center or by calling 703-2283300.

Back in my newspaper editing days, when land development boomed, we used to have lively debates about everything, including “Fauquier’s biggest industry.” A prominent local lady liked to remind me that, in her view, agriculture held that position I disagreed. Yes, it occupies more land than any other local industry, I would say. But, by no other measure would farming rank No. 1, I argued. It contributes mightily to making Fauquier wonderful, but agriculture doesn’t rank first in annual sales or employment. Well, then, what does? she would ask. “Real estate,” I’d respond. “The building, selling, financing and insuring of homes.” That may remain the case — or it may not. But, reflecting on 29 years here and the changes during that time, something else rises to top-of-mind status. Medicine, health care, whatever we call it, has exploded in size here as it has across the nation. With 1,200 on its payroll, “the hospital” or Fauquier Health — with all its affiliates — ranks as the county’s largest non-government employer. With salaries and other expenditures, Fauquier Health pumps about $150 million annually into the economy. But, it doesn’t stop there. Medical practices have boomed. The Blue Ridge Orthopaedic & Spine Center in Warrenton, for example, has a huge building and a staff that goes well beyond surgeons to include physical therapists, technologists, nurses and other support staff. It has its own operating suites and diagnostic equipment. Other practices have grown quite large, as well. The community has more specialists. Add dentists, eye doctors, audiologists, physical therapists, nursing homes, home health suppliers, pharmacies and the health-care industry in Fauquier must account for at least a quarter-billion dollars annually. As the cost of care — or at least health insurance — continues to rise faster than just about anything else, we wonder what the future will hold. Can the local hospital, one of only six independents left in Virginia, remain that way in an environment that encourages “economy of scale?” What effect will the 2014 opening of a new hospital on Fauquier’s doorstep, at Haymarket, have? Does the industry have room to grow here, providing more well-paying jobs, which we so desperately need? What role will the local campus of Lord Fairfax Community College play in training skilled workers for a rapidly-changing health-care system, where technology and communication grow increasingly important? The answers to those questions will have great bearing on our community in the next five years and beyond, I predict. A few news items: • Liz and Jesse Straight have moved their organic agricultural operation to historic Whiffletree Farm, about 2-1/2 miles west of Warrenton on Springs Road. The Straights this year plan to raise, process and sell 6,000 chickens, 50 pigs, 13 steers and 450 turkeys — more than doubling their annual output. And, despite a devotion to the simple life, they’ve launched a website: www. whiffletreefarmva.com. • Fauquier native Dean A. Honeycutt has joined Saratoga Title & Escrow in Warrenton as vice president of operations. Headquartered at 550 Broadview Avenue, Saratoga has operated 13 years in Warrenton. • Most respondents to a recent survey told the board of supervisors that the new economic development director should be a county employee, not an independent contractor. The supervisors pledged to move ahead with filling the position, vacant since the county’s first economic development director, Talmage Reeves, resigned in March. “Lou” Emerson edits FauquierNow.com.
