From The Publisher

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays

from all of us here at The Warrenton Lifestyle Magazine and Piedmont Press & Graphics! Many of you have contacted us regarding the 100th edition of The Warrenton Lifestyle Magazine published last month; we are grateful that you enjoyed the review of our previous 99 issues. With a shorter holiday season this year, we have a few tips for minimizing the chaos during the holidays. First, take a few minutes to read Michelle Kelley’s article on page 26. The second thing you can do for yourself is to create a life-changing experience by volunteering and/or contributing to one of the dozens of wonderful non-profit organizations we have in and around Warrenton. The volunteer based groups are dedicated to helping those who cannot completely help themselves. They need money for programs and projects but can always use your time, effort, talents and commitment. In the spirit of giving, please remember our local organizations that help those that are having trouble helping themselves: Fauquier Family Shelter, Habitat for Humanity, Fauquier Free Clinic, SPCA, FISH, Fauquier Food Distribution Coalition, Community Touch, etc. The beauty of giving locally is the results of your contributions help our neighbors. Not only do organizations need funds to keep their doors open and food for inventory, they seek your time and your

skills. For a list of local organizations and how to contact them, please pick up a copy of the Fauquier County Community Resource Guide available at our office and around the County or view it online at www.FauquierResources.com. Beginning on page 22 of the guide is a list of places to assist with contributions. Third, for a truly enjoyable holiday shopping experience, stay here and patronize the fine merchants we have in Warrenton. Enjoy a Friday night in Old Town, a Saturday afternoon exploring the area stores and Sunday afternoon at one of our active shopping centers. You’ll be greeted by friendly, familiar faces and receive first-rate, personal service. In between shopping you can dine at one of our terrific restaurants (see page 58) and enjoy celebrating with your neighbors. All the while you will feel good knowing your hard-earned dollars are going back into the community you live in. Avoid the traffic! Save time! Enjoy your gift-shopping! Thank you, everyone, for a record-setting year for our publications. We gratefully appreciate your support, patronage and that you allow us to provide good jobs in our community while benefiting dozens of local organizations.

May God bless you and your family.

Rosemary Groux, Local Teen Author

Brenwyd Legacy: Finding Truth The Blue Ridge Mountains and Glastonbury, England have something in common, the setting of local teen author Rosemary Groux’s new trilogy, Brenwyd Legacy: Finding Truth. The seventeen year old just released her first Christian fantasy novel following the story of a young girl, Cassie Pennington, who discovers she is a descendant of the Brenwyds, an ancient people who are in as much trouble as they are special. When her parents are kidnapped she starts to wonder if it’s because of her dad’s new research on King Arthur’s treasure or do enemies of the Brenwyds seek to prevent Cassie’s destiny. With the help of her two best friends, a new acquaintance named William and her animals, Cassie sets out on an adventure to rescue her parents and seek the truth. Groux, a current junior at Highland School, got her inspiration for the book from some of her favorite authors as well as adventures on the school bus. An avid reader, she grew fond of books by C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien at an early age and an interest in King Arthur. Shying away from writing about popular teen topics like zombies, death, murder and morality, Groux chose a lighter approach to offer readers something more quest-like. “I turn to the teenage section and it’s almost all dark cover art,” Groux said about visiting her favorite bookstores. “So if I see a patch of brightness I always end up going toward that book.” Groux was able to fit us in to her hectic teenage schedule – balancing high school including three AP courses, extra curricular school activities like the theatre club and her active membership in the Casanova Pony Club – for a quick question and answer session about the books release.

Brenwyd Legacy: Finding Truth is currently available for purchase at $14.99 on Amazon and Believe Books.

q & a continued from page 8 Local teen and author Rosemary Groux answers questions about her recently published book.

WL: It was said that you wrote this book entirely on your own, and it started out as daydreams?

G: It started back in 5th grade when I was riding the bus, I would think of my favorite books and started thinking about their story lines by going through the sequence of events in my head. I’m pretty sure a lot of people have imagined themselves in their favorite books – going through the things that the characters went through. The difference is that I found myself within the story and eventually made that a character that represented myself. That was the birth of the main character. Once I had done that, I made up a back-story and it became much more complex.

WL: When did you do the majority of the writing? G: I think a bunch of it happened over the school year, but I started over the summer. I wasn’t really that dedicated with it and by Thanksgiving I was up to nine chapters. As I got farther into it and it became more of a story and more of a book, I started working on it more. That part was mostly during the school year. Sometimes weeks would go by and I wouldn’t write anything, but then there were days that I would write through the whole afternoon.

WL: Did you bring any of it to school? G: I had an all purpose notebook that I would bring to school and when I had free time I would continue writing the story where I had left off on the computer. Then I would get home or when I would have time I would enter what I had written in the computer. When I finally finished book one and I had it in manuscript form I would print it off and edit it, but I was really careful not to let anyone see it while I was working on it.

WL: When did story really take off? G: It was years later on a family vacation, I was trying to help pass the time in the car with my little sister so I started telling her the story. When I finished my Mom mentioned that I should write it down, and I thought “sure, maybe.” It wasn’t until weeks later that the idea really grew on me. I never thought, “I’m going to write a seventeen chapter book.” It just all happened from there.

WL: Where did you find inspiration? G: One of the things in this book is the King Arthur legend; I really took off with it. Bryan Davis’ series integrates it into his storyline where it’s not the focal point, but it’s still an important part. It’s where I first heard of King Arthur. Stephen Lawhead wrote a whole series on a King Arthur story and his own take on it. That again is a book that has Christianity throughout, but he wasn’t beating you over the head with it. Lawhead was really good at recreating the culture of the time and what they were really going through. I read all of those and they were really interesting. Those books are probably where I got the first idea for the Brenwyd. The Brenwyd people are kind of like elves and have pointed ears and are really pretty, but they aren’t elves.

WL: Did you always know where you wanted this book to go? Did you have a clear vision?

G: I never really had a clear vision. I would say that I really started taking the idea and thought it really might become something when I introduced the fourth major character. For the first six to seven chapters I only had three main characters (two boys and a girl), and I like having my characters neatly paired up. At this point I was like, “well what do I do with her?” So I made up another character to help balance her out. That was a huge turning point for the story. That character becomes very important in the later books, and it gives the story much of its depth.

WL: When did you tell your family that you were working on this?

G: I don’t remember so much telling, but I remember my younger sister came upon me while I was typing. I would sit in my room with my door shut just working on the computer. I told my cousin about it voluntarily, because we are close and sent it to her for her birthday - it sort of came out that way. q & a continued on page 12

Illustration of Cassie Pennington, the main character in Brendwyd Legacy.

WL: How would you describe the book to someone who hasn’t read it yet? G: Generally, I would say it’s about a girl and her parents get kidnapped. When she goes after them, as a result she has many adventures.

WL: Could you touch on how this is a Christian novel? G: It’s how the character, Cassie Pennington, expresses her faith through her life and through her actions. It’s a natural thing for Cassie, she isn’t trying hard to be Christian, its just how she lives. It’s her defining code of character in how she responds to situations. The late character I was telling you about, William, he comes into the story as a skeptic. He’s hearing, seeing and learning things that are so different than how he was raised. He tries to work through and reconcile his actions. Of course, he isn’t able to and has to pick a side, but he gives an outside perspective that I think people will be able to relate to more. He comes into the chapter pretty sure of himself, where he is coming from and his worldview. He spends a week with these people and he starts thinking about ‘what’s right?’ and challenges his views.

WL: Is there anything that you would want to tell readers specifically about the book?

G: I think mainly in Christian fiction there actually isn’t a lot of fantasy, adventure type of stories. There is the author Bryan Davis, his stories are amazing but a bunch of the other fiction stories are for a younger age group rather than older teenagers or they are Christian romances. I like the romances, but sometimes I really want to read an adventure story. Brenwyd Legacy is a Christian story but there is action and adventure, and they are doing things along with historical references.

WL: Do you see yourself writing more?

G: Maybe. It’s not something that I set out consciously to do. A lot of it goes on in my head, I think through stories and I add in my own characters and fuse things - through that I will get ideas. My Latin teacher handed out an assignment last year and it’s a story I started. It was supposed to be about 1,500 words but I’ve written well over that and I’m still working. That’s not a book though, just something I’m working on.

WL: Did you have aspirations to get this published?

G: I didn’t really think it would get published, but it was sort of in the back of my head.

WL: Do you have a plan as to when you’ll release the second and third books?

G: The second book will be released next fall (2014) and the third the following fall (2015). If there is a higher demand for the book then the third will hopefully be released sooner.

WL: Where is the book available?

G: The website is brenwydegacy.com with options for purchase.

Brenwyd Legacy: Finding Truth is currently available for purchase on Amazon and through Believe Books. The book recently received the honor of a silver medal from the Mom’s Choice Awards. Groux will have readings and book signings in the area over the next year. She also mentioned donating copies to the local libraries as well, that will be available to checkout.

Youthful leadership

Leading a New Generation Fauquier County native, Sam Parker comes back to build a better community through family, business and volunteerism. by George Rowand

Sam Parker says that working for a community bank can sometimes seem like something out of the movies. “We did ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ theme for our Christmas float one year,” Parker stated. “We had Mr. Potter, and we had George Bailey, and working in a local bank, you sometimes feel like that whole movie. You really do.” Parker is vice president-loan officer for Oak View Bank in Warrenton. He grew up in Fauquier County, went away to college and came back to start his career. “I was raised in the southern end of Fauquier,” he said, “graduated from Liberty High School and went to William and Mary.” With a degree in business administration, Parker went to work for Marshall National Bank for three years. When that bank became PNC Bank, he worked an additional three years there and moved over to Oak View Bank when they opened up. He’s been there for four years. The work – and the working conditions – suit him. “Coming back into the community, I really found my sense of belonging,” Parker said. “I was enjoying my job, enjoying the people I worked with, enjoying working and being a professional in the community I grew up in. I minored in sociology, and my senior year I had a class, ‘Society and the parker continued on page 16 14

Individual.’ One of the major tenets in that class was how the individual relies on the community … that network. When I got back in the community, I just felt that sense overall. I have a two-mile commute … max. I come home at lunch and have lunch with my kids. I have friends who tell me how lucky I am, and I know how blessed I am, but I consciously built my life around this.

Multi-tasking “When you’re a small bank like we are, you wear so many different hats,” Parker said. “As a lender, I also work with the asset liability committee. You see so many different aspects of banking, and that really makes it fun.” A banker when the Great Recession hit, Parker saw first-hand the difference a banker with a business relationship could have on a small business.

“When the economy went bad a couple of years ago, some banks really didn’t know their clients, and if a business got into a bit of trouble, they didn’t have the authority to do anything,” he stated. “The only authority they had was to put that information into a computer which sent it off somewhere, and they made the decision for you. They looked at the numbers and the trends, and in 2009,the trends were all going down. Some businesses that had lines of credit discovered that the bank would change the rules, and if you take a loan with an interest-only payment and put it on a short-term principal and interest payment, well, that’s a sure-fire way to put a company out of business.” Locally-owned Oak View is different, Parker said. “We have a simple balance sheet. We have deposits from the

community, and we give out loans to the community. That’s really it. When you have experience with somebody, and you’ve seen them pay off smaller loans, and you’ve seen them come into your bank, making deposits, and you can talk with them, and you know their business. You can stop in there and see how they run a shop, that without a doubt makes a difference. When we see potential, we always try to figure out, ‘How can we make this loan,’ and not the other way around.” With wife Lauren and their two young kids, Parker said that he appreciates how his life has turned out. “I’m a local kid that grew up and wanted to be part of this community. The other Saturday, I walked my daughter up to the library and then I walked her over to Red Truck Bakery and got her a treat, and you can’t do that in every community. I’m blessed.”

life &

living it

trust by Dr. Robert Iadeluca

When was the last time you looked into the eyes of an infant as he gazed up at his mother? Absolute unconditional unwavering trust – can there be a more accurate way of describing what you are seeing? Without yet being able to put this into words, this child has placed his very being into the care of another. When was the last time you felt that secure in your relationship with another person? Today? Last week? Last year? Never? And yet although we may never again trust to the extent experienced by this infant, whether we have thought of this or not, practically every action we take in our lives is based on our need to trust. As a psychotherapist I hear concerns from my patients that in many cases they do not even share with close family members. They know that once my door is shut, unless their life or health is in jeopardy, everything said is confidential. I not only keep completely confidential what they are telling me, I have made it a practice to not even share the identity 20

of my patients. My lips are sealed and my patients know it. This trust that they have in me has much to do with the success of their recovery from their illness or the solution to their problems. Much earlier in my life I was employed by a very large advertising agency. On behalf of its clients, its responsibility was to convince the public that the products or services being advertised were of the highest quality. The buying public had no way of knowing before they purchased the item whether or not it lived up to the claims being made. They trusted what they heard or read and bought the product. The majority of people are news hungry and either watch the TV, listen to the radio, or read a newspaper on a daily basis. Do you believe what you are being told? Whom do you trust or distrust? Some citizens choose one TV or radio station or newspaper over another. Others distrust the media in general. If you are one of the latter, where do you obtain your news? A friend? Facebook? Twitter? How do you separate facts from rumor? And as we follow the news we learn about the pervasive lack of trust in our political system and the behaviors of various politicians within it. One party distrusts the other party and a majority of the populace distrusts both. Nevertheless we continue to place faith in our constitution believing that our representative form of democracy is the best form of government in existence. Why do we continue to believe in this document created over two centuries ago? trust continued on page 22 Warrenton Lifestyle

trust continued from page 20

Going beyond internal problems and gazing worldwide, what opinions do you have? Do you trust other nations who have or are trying to build nuclear weapons? In your opinion, do you believe our top leaders should trust them? What about our allies? History has shown that nations sometimes change allegiances to the point of war. Extending our view, do you believe that we actually landed one of our men on the moon? Yes, you saw the portrayal on TV but was the picture concocted in order to boost America’s image? How do you truly know such an event happened or do you trust it to be so. But let us return to our personal lives. Do you take this man/woman to be your ……? Sound familiar? When you heard the other person say “I do,” was there implicit faith within you that he/she meant it and would hold steadfastly to that vow? You are aware of the 50% divorce record in the United States. Despite this, do you trust your spouse completely? At the age of 52 I became a full-time student at the University of New York in Albany aiming at a doctorate. Three years later I officially applied to be part of the doctoral program and was rejected due to my age and “probable” memory problems. I trusted my own ability and transferred to Syracuse University where they recognized what I already knew and granted me my Ph.D. at the age of 59. Throughout my 21 years as a clinical psychologist I have heard numerous teen agers tell me that they shared their college aspirations with school counselors only to receive a recommendation that they “forget the idea.” I have urged these hopeful students to trust their own abilities and to work hard. One can trust (or not trust) machines in the same way that one can place trust in individuals. When you get into your car in the morning do you expect it to start immediately? When you take out your cell phone, do you expect it to work? How about trust in your pets? When you call your dog, do you expect it to come? When the time comes around for you to receive your paycheck, do you trust completely that you will receive it? Christmas is approaching. Does your child or grandchild trust that there is a Santa Claus? And as you shop for their gifts how do you pay? Why do you assume that when you hand the retailer a few pieces of green paper he will accept that in return for valuable merchandise? On these slips of paper are imprinted the words “In God We Trust.” Is that what makes the transaction binding? Or perhaps you hand him a credit card and he trusts that you will make the monthly payments or that the credit card company will make good.

Each week I attend a meeting of Chamber of Commerce members where we explain in detail our occupations. The purpose is to make known to each of us where we can go when we have business needs. Most of us have attended these meetings for years and can now cite the occupations of our fellow members even without their telling us. The “hidden” advantage? In the process of sharing knowledge about ourselves trust is built. We get to know not only the occupation but the person behind it. When a product or service is needed we turn to our friend to furnish it trusting that the odds of receiving a good product or service are greater than those promised by a stranger. Considering the fact that we live “on the edge” never truly knowing for sure whether our expectations will be realized, why do we nevertheless tend to trust? Neuroscientists have one possible answer. A simple molecule, Oxytocin, made in the brain helps to make us trusting individuals. This same protein which stimulates milk flow in nursing women and induces labor, encourages cooperation (which requires trust) and promotes friendly interactions. Receiving a sign of trust makes people feel positive. Humans have a powerful propensity for attachment. Perhaps this is built within us genetically. Aside from possible biological causes, it becomes obvious that without trust inaction is the result. Society needs trust because we are eternally between a solid confidence in what is always definitely known and the contingency of new possibilities. With trust we can create a sense of community and, to some degree, make social life predictable. As indicated at the start of this article, trust starts with the family. Psychoanalyst Erik Erikson said that the first state of success or failure takes place during the first two years of life. A positive relationship between parent and infant leads toward the child’s becoming secure, trusting and optimistic. Placing a trust in someone increases subjective well being and enhances relationships. However, once trust is lost, it is very hard to regain. Being and acting trustworthy is the only sure way to maintain a trust level. Trusting is making a bet that one may receive benefits. Taking out life insurance, for example, is nothing more than betting the insurance company that I will “win” by dying and my family will benefit monetarily. I have personally “lost” monetarily by living and paying premiums to my present age of 93. I am now at the period which hospices term the “end of life.” It might be just another two weeks or it might be seven or eight years. I am a trusting person and am planning to be active to the point of being a centenarian.

Fauquier Health Babies Receive Advanced Care Sooner Through Fauquier Hospital, UVA Health System Partnership Babies born at Fauquier Hospital can now quickly receive advanced evaluation and care from specialists at University of Virginia Health System (UVA) through a new telemedicine partnership. Supported by UVA’s Center for Telehealth, the first neonatal telemedicine program in Virginia provides secure video, audio and data links between Fauquier Hospital’s Family Birthing Center and UVA’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). With the telemedicine program, Fauquier Hospital newborns and clinicians now have around-the-clock access to board-certified UVA neonatologists who specialize in caring for very small or ill infants. “For infants born at Fauquier Hospital who need advanced care, this partnership will ensure they are evaluated and treated as soon as possible,” said Linda Sharkey, Fauquier Health’s vice president for patient care. The telemedicine program will also help UVA neonatologists more quickly determine which infants need to be transferred to UVA’s 45-bed NICU and which newborns can be cared for at Fauquier. “We know how important it is for parents and newborns to remain close to home whenever possible,” said Robert Sinkin, M.D., division head of neonatology at UVA. “This will help newborns and their families in the Warrenton area get as much of their care as possible near home while providing them with easy access to the specialized care we provide at UVA.”

Dr. Maria Juanpere, medical director of the Mars Family Special Care Nursery at Fauquier Hospital, watches the University of Virginia portion of Wednesday’s ribbon cutting ceremony. The celebration was held at UVA and in the Family Birthing Center at the same time, and shared via the new telemedicine technology. The program allows neonatal nurse practitioners and physicians at Fauquier Hospital to consult in real time with the expert neonatologists at the University of Virginia. 24

Fauquier Hospital joins UVA Center for Telehealth’s network of more than 85 telemedicine sites across Virginia that help thousands of Virginians access specialty care not available in their home communities. “We’re pleased to help expand access to neonatology care in the Warrenton area,” said Karen Rheuban, MD, director of the UVA Center for Telehealth.

Fauquier Health Seeks Nominations for

DAISY Award for Nurses

Fauquier Hospital is asking for input from the community to honor its most compassionate and dedicated nurses. A special nurse will be recognized in January with a DAISY Award for his or her hard work. Because patients are the best judges of the care they receive, Fauquier Hospital’s patients and their families are asked to submit nominations. DAISY recipients receive many perks in recognition of their hard work and dedication. A banner is hung in the recipients’ department and each DAISY winner receives a certificate, pin and hand-carved sculpture. Nurses and staff members from the recipient’s unit will enjoy cinnamon rolls and other treats at the award presentation. Anyone can nominate a nurse. The nomination form may be found in the front lobby of Fauquier Hospital, or on the health system’s website, www.fauquierhealth.org (scroll to the bottom of the home page and look for the daisy). A new recipient is chosen each quarter. What is a DAISY Award? DAISY is an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System. The DAISY Foundation was formed in 2000, by the family of J. Patrick Barnes, who died at age 33 of complications from Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP). After his death, Barnes’ family found comfort in the positive experiences they had while he was in the hospital. They created the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses to recognize the super-human work nurses do every day all over the country. Warrenton Lifestyle

Addicted to Chaos by Michelle Kelley, LCSW

the holidays should be a time for family and friends, make sure your holiday is full of cheer instead of stress. We all know that alcohol, drugs, gambling, and sex can lead to addictive behavior. But did you know that living in chaos is an emerging and increasingly common addiction as well? If you know any drama queens, kings, or other people who love to “stir the pot,” they could be living case examples of “chaos addiction.” According to one poll, 68% of Americans are addicted to some sort of chaos or busyness. Add the demands of holiday shopping, party planning and celebrations to the mix, and chaos addiction can become even more pronounced at this time of year, robbing us of the very joy and peace that we seek to experience during the holiday season.

What Is Chaos Addiction?

“Chaos addiction” is a relatively new psychological term that refers to living in a constant state of chaos, turmoil, tension or drama. Alcoholics and drug addicts often live in a chronic state of chaos, but many sober people are succumbing to this life style as well. Chaos addiction can be emotionally destructive and create havoc in relationships. All addictions offer escape and refuge from life’s stresses and problems. People who are addicted to chaos may be trying to distract themselves from experiencing something painful: a bad relationship, feelings of unworthiness or traumatic memories from childhood, for example.

Changing Chaotic Behavior

Changing one’s chaotic behavior is not easy. To start, a chaos addict must admit they have a problem. They must have a strong desire to change destructive behaviors and consciously choose to adopt new habits. They must addicted to chaos continued on page 28 26

addiction or they are affected by someone who has such an addiction. I, too, have allowed myself at times to get sucked into the fast lane or lured into unconscious “busyness.” Mothers, especially, can find themselves multitasking constantly to manage their households, children’s school activities, and their own jobs as well. While compulsive multitasking can feel like a necessary and unavoidable part of life, we need to remember that we do have choices and it all begins with awareness. You may be suffering from chaos addiction if you answer “yes” to the following questions: • Do you have trouble saying “no” to people and requests? • Does your life feel over-scheduled? • Do you feel panicked and anxious, yet still feel the need to accomplish? • Does your To Do list rule your life? • Are you constantly too busy to make time for friends and family?

Quiet Time: The First Step to Managing Chaos Addiction Do you know how to be quiet? In today’s world it can be an incredible challenge to “stay in the calm.” Chaos and drama can creep into your life without you realizing what has happened. Too many demands on your time or interacting with toxic people will drain you of your patience and your peace of mind. Taking time out every day to simply be quiet and alone with yourself so you can pay attention to what you are thinking and feeling, without outside distractions, is a first step to managing chaos addiction. addicted to chaos continued from page 26 slow down and stop doing so much, and this can feel very uncomfortable. The chaos addict’s path to healing may involve mindfulness practices and counseling. While all change is difficult at first, the payoff is a calmer, more peaceful life filled with meaningful relationships and experiences.

Technology’s Role in Chaos Addiction

Round-the-clock access to computers, cell phones and the internet are contributing to the rise of chaos addiction in today’s society. While technology enables us to stay connected 24/7, obtain and deliver information nearly instantaneously and exponentially increase our productivity at work and at school, it also presents challenges to those who have a hard time establishing and enforcing boundaries. Technology is seductive. We all know people who are reluctant to unplug, turn off, silence or walk away from their computers and their cell phones. The constant state of being plugged in and turned on reinforces and aggravates chaos addiction.

Symptoms of Chaos Addiction

Many of my clients are either struggling with a chaos


Women, especially, need to learn to take a time out so they can be “good to themselves.” This means giving yourself permission to have downtime, fun time or special time, without feeling selfish or guilty. Many women silently fear they will be perceived as selfish. Taking care of yourself is not selfish. The calmer you are, the less likely you are to yell, snap at someone, feel irritated or short-fused -- and that is good for everyone around you.

The Health Consequences of Chaos Addiction

Excessive drama and chaos can trigger the body’s stress response, releasing destructive hormones that can wreak havoc on your mind and body. A constant stream of chaos and drama in your life will trigger the fight-or-flight response in your body. When your mind and body are not able to experience adequate and regular reprieves from the fight-orflight response, you increase your risk of developing anxiety, depression, digestive problems, sleep problems, weight gain and memory/concentration impairment.

How to Minimize the Chaos

• Identify stress-producing behavior or stress-producing people in your life, then create a plan to limit these behaviors or exposure to these people. • Set limits. Create boundaries to keep you calm and the chaos out. Warrenton Lifestyle

• Focus on creating a healthy lifestyle which includes adequate sleep, exercise and healthy food choices. • Make a conscious decision to attract calm into your life, not chaos. Enjoy the Holidays and Let us Deliver

How to Minimize Chaos During the Holidays. Ask Yourself These Questions:

Fresh and Permanent Christmas Centerpieces, Wreaths, Arrangements and Home Accents

• Do you spend too much money during the holidays? If so, consider sticking to a holiday spending budget. • Have a family meeting to discuss holiday stress. Ask for suggestions on how to reduce the stress/anxiety/chaos of the season.


• Schedule down time or fun family time. This could be something as simple as pizza night or game night.

• Turn off technology for one hour or more each day with the focus being on spending quality time together. Staying plugged in too much can add to your over all stress level. Set boundaries with technology and help your children do the same. For example, do not answer email after 7pm or on weekends.

Albert Einstein reminds us that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. In order to get out of a rut or change a behavior pattern, you must consciously choose to change and practice new and different behaviors.

R O C P N O I R E A L T P ED O E Community Action for Fauquier County! by Jane Burnette

People Incorporated is a community action and community development corporation. You may remember the Fauquier Community Action Committee (FCAC) that provided help with Volunteer Income Tax Assistance, heating and cooling, some home repair and also Head Start. Many of FCAC’s programs found homes in other agencies; the food bank and thrift store and also Head Start, became separate nonprofit agencies. Since FCAC disbanded, People Incorporated has been designated as the community action agency for Fauquier, Prince William, and Rappahannock Counties, Manassas, and Manassas Park in the Northern Piedmont Region. Community Action agencies were begun as part of Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society program, which included the War on Poverty. These non-profit agencies are charged with going into a community, assessing its needs and developing programs to address the unmet needs of people experiencing low incomes. Since community action agencies provide different services in different communities, it is often confusing to know what to expect from them. People Incorporated, based in Abingdon, Virginia since 1964, is one of the oldest community action agencies in Virginia. In fifteen counties throughout Virginia, People Incorporated operates various programs such as Head Start, affordable and supportive housing, workforce development, community economic development, and other community-driven services that are designed to help people build assets and enter the economic mainstream. People Incorporated does not duplicate services; rather, it identifies service gaps and develops programs where it can be most beneficial. Bridgeforth Design began with support from People, Incorporated, and has grown into a full-service custom art and graphic studio. People, Incorporated, provided business development assistance and a small start-up loan.


In Fauquier County, People Incorporated is beginning to develop its programs. It is continuing the very important Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program. This IRS program recruits volunteer tax preparers and assists people whose household incomes are $52,000 per year or less. By ensuring that people take all of the tax credits they are due (such as the Earned Income Tax credit and the Child Tax Credit), the program helps to keep people out of poverty. Use of these two tax credits was tracked by the IRS and has kept more than 160,000 people in Virginia out of poverty. More than 84,000 of them were children. This program brings money into the county in the form of tax refunds. When people use this money for savings, to buy a home, to start a business or to go to school, our county benefits. People Incorporated is exploring the potential to provide programs to support such activities and is working on affordable housing and business development services. The mission of People Incorporated is to provide opportunities for economically disadvantaged people to reach their goals in order to enhance their lives, their families and their communities.

The Warrenton Speedway by John T. Toler

Despite its brief existence, many people were involved in the racetrack For many people, competitive racing in Warrenton only conjures up images of horses at the Virginia Gold Cup galloping around the old Broadview course. But long ago, competitive auto racing was big in Warrenton as well. It is remarkable that auto racing here was popular in the mid- to late 1920s, not long after mass-produced cars and trucks became available to average Americans. A new sport was born as local mechanics and drivers competed with skill, imagination and courage. Most of the early racecars were built on Ford Model-T chasses, and powered by modified 4- or 6-cylinder engines. They were designed and built in auto repair shops, private garages and racing enthusiasts’ back yards. The typical racecar was a stripped-down affair with a narrow body, pneumatic tires on 32

spoked wheels, no fenders and few, if any safety features. Auto racing originated at big-name tracks like Indianapolis, but it was not long before auto racetracks of one sort or another were established outside of cities and towns like Richmond, Winchester, Fredericksburg and Manassas. Locally, there were at least two racetracks. One was outside of Marshall on the site of the old fairgrounds. The other was the Warrenton Speedway, built in New Baltimore in 1925. It was a substantial half-mile dirt track with banked curves, an infield, fencing and other features. Part of the Snow Hill development now occupies the site. A group of local men built the racetrack: Warrenton residents Tom Frost (1905-1969), Harry Edwards (19051985), Wilbur Edwards (1898-1954), and

Kenny Kays (1906-1984), and Marshall boys James D. Beatty (1898-1956) and John T. Beatty (1902-1930). They were close friends as well as competitors, and during the time the track operated, other drivers joined them, including W. Neville Hatcher, G. T. Roberts and Bill Clatterbuck. Perhaps the best known of the organizers was Tom Frost, who grew up in the Marshall area. In 1920, he went to work for Warrenton Supply, “…sweeping floors, changing tires, or anything else they wanted him to do,” according to Mrs. Tom Frost in Recalling My Life and Times (2000). “Warrenton Supply had a hardware store and the Ford dealership, as well as a service department. I think Tom’s love affair with the automobile began then, and lasted all his days.” Warrenton Lifestyle

Tom went to Indianapolis on Race Day in 1924, where he got to work on a pit crew. While there, he met such racing legends as Eddie Rickenbacker and Ralph DePalma. After experiencing the excitement of racing, Tom returned to Warrenton, and convinced his friends to join him in building a racetrack. A large, open field on the W.W. Sanders Sr. farm on the west side of the old Alexandria Turnpike was available, and work on the track started soon afterward. That the track built there, and who built it, was no accident. Harry and Wilbur Edwards as well as their father, Sam Edwards (1872-1940), all worked for the county highway department. Their boss was Mr. Sanders, the resident engineer. J. Downing Beatty and John T. Beatty were both expert mechanics, and had opened Beatty Brothers Garage in Marshall in 1918. Auto racing came naturally to the brothers; when they were not working on customers’ cars, they built their own hotrods, and raced them at several tracks. An electrician with his own business, W. Kenneth “Kenny” Kays was also a self-taught auto mechanic. “I feel

that Dad was captivated by auto racing through his close association with Tom Frost and the Edwards brothers,” recalled his son, William K. “Pop” Kays, of Bristow. Kenny Kays built his own racecar, based on a Ford chassis and powered by an overhead valve engine. “Lord only knows where he got the money to build it,” said Pop Kays.

The Great Race of 1927

Perhaps the biggest event ever held at the Warrenton Speedway was on July 4, 1927, when over 1,000 spectators gathered at the course for a day of racing. Among those present was William H. Gaines, who wrote a colorful account of the contests for the July 6, 1927 issue of The Fauquier Democrat. “For weeks, Tom Frost, the Edwards boys, Kenny Kays, Roberts, the Beattys and other pioneers in auto racing locally have been laboring to make a track – a dirt one, but a good, fast one with well-banked turns,” Gaines wrote. He noted that Tom Frost was the General Boss for the race day. A photo of Mr. Frost directing traffic coming into the racetrack ran in the newspaper. “Monday afternoon the gates were thrown open and the crowd poured in,

to the joy of George Cable, the Publicity Boss. Seventy-five cents passed you in, and another quarter saw your car through the gate,” said Gaines. “Anyone that didn’t get five dollars back for their lonesome one buck is an unappreciative cuss that didn’t have any business there anyway. The races were good – all of them.” The first race of the day was a 10-miler, done in 20 laps around the track. Four cars competed, and all four finished. “The Tom Frost Warrenton Supply Special, resembling a horizontal barber pole with a 7 emblazoned on the side, showed the dust all the way to the rest of the bunch, and believe me, there was dust blown,” according to Gaines. Coming in second was Kenny Kays in his Habe Special, followed by G. T. Roberts and one of the Beatty brothers. The winning time was 12.09. Following the first race there was a break, with spectators taking refreshments at Bill Kays’ concession stand. Then, a children’s competition in handmade “racers” was held on the track, with young Charles Moser leading all the way, followed by Joe Taylor and Nick Gaines. speedway continued on page 34

Courtesy of Mrs. E. C. Schwab. The next race was for 25 miles – 50 times around the dirt track – with seven drivers competing. Tom Frost’s cars driven by Harry Edwards and Wilbur Edwards took first and second place, respectively, an third place was taken by Kenny Kays. “The 25-mile grind… was so fast you could hardly see the cars for the dust,” wrote Gaines. “Neville Hatcher ought never to say another word about speeding, as that boy surely did hit it up; he was fourth, but a number of times threatened the leaders with his spurts.” Hatcher was followed by Beatty,

Clatterbuck and Roberts. Winning time for the 25-mile race was 31.40 The next event was a 10-mile match race, with G. T. Roberts coming in ahead of Harry Edwards and Kenny Kays. “All in all, it was an afternoon of real racing. The large crowd was enthusiastic, and not an accident marred the proceedings,” wrote Gaines. “To the winner of the big race went a handsome silver cup. Those who worked so hard to make this first race meeting a success should feel more than satisfied.”

Life after the racetrack

No records have been found of large-scale racing events at the Warrenton Speedway after 1927. But it is clear that changes came swiftly in the lives of the participants, and for various reasons, involvement in the track faded. But the men who created or raced at the Warrenton Speedway remained friends for life. In June 1928, Neville Hatcher was hired as an inspector for the enforcement division of the Division of Motor Vehicles, which later became the speedway continued on page 36

That summer, Harry Edwards established a local speed record of 98 miles per hour in Tom Frost’s No. 2 racecar, heading down the straightaway on Route 29 near the Warrenton Speedway. According to Harry’s daughter, Mrs. E.C. Schwab, of Warrenton, Harry’s record speed was clocked by Inspector Hatcher, who rode behind him on his motorcycle. A courageous and dedicated officer, Neville Hatcher’s career was cut short on Aug. 15, 1928, when he was shot while trying to apprehend a murder suspect in Culpeper County. He died of his wounds on Aug. 28, 1928. Inspector Hatcher was the first VSP officer to die in the line of duty. (See Warrenton Lifestyle, April 2011). Downing and John Beatty operated the Beatty Brothers Garage

in Marshall together until December 1930, when John died at age 28 – not in a racecar crash, but from pneumonia in a Washington, D.C. hospital after undergoing a tonsillectomy. Downing continued to operate the business for several more years. Harry and Wilbur Edwards continued their careers with the highway department after county roads were taken over by the state in 1931. As employees of the new Virginia Department of Highways, Harry became superintendent of the of the Warrenton Residency of the Culpeper District, and Wilbur was put in charge of all the equipment maintenance and repair operations. Kenny Kays married Miss Annie Noland (1911-1989), who was the bookkeeper at Warrenton Supply when Tom Frost worked there. “Mom always told us that she refused to marry Dad as long as he was racing cars, because he

Schwab. was going to kill himself,” recalled Pop Kays. “She told us that one Sunday, Dad was racing on the track at New Baltimore and lost control of his car. He went off the track, and crashed between two trees, tearing the wheels off. He wasn’t injured, but he didn’t have the money to fix the car, so they secretly ran off to Washington, D.C. and got married. That was the end of his racing career.” Years later, when they were preparing their parents’ final home on Locust Street, Pop Kays and his sister, Barbara Fisher, found the overhead valves from their father’s race car in the basement. “I wish we had kept them,” Pop lamented. Tom Frost proved to be a valuable asset at Warrenton Supply, and by 1932, he was the vice president of the firm. speedway continued on page 38

Lifetime friendships During World War II, Tom Frost operated a large storage facility in Warrenton for rationed automobiles and tires. In this photo, Mr. Frost (right) unloads a truckload of tires with the help of Harry Edwards (at rear) and Harvey Craun. Courtesy of Mrs. Barbara Kays Fisher.

Tom Frost left Warrenton Supply in 1935, and started several small businesses in Warrenton, including a Texaco filling station, an auto repair shop and a restaurant. “He was a Firestone dealer, and had the Oldsmobile, Plymouth and Dodge agencies at various times,” wrote Mrs. Frost. Annie Kays left Warrenton Supply when Tom did, and worked for him as the bookkeeper for his various enterprises. After the United States entered World War II, the War Production Board mandated that all new, unsold automobiles be rationed, and needed places to stockpile its inventory of new cars. Because of his automotive background, Tom Frost was put in

“Tom would call my father and tell him that he was coming by at a certain time, and to be ready to go somewhere with him,” recalled Mrs. Schwab. One trip in March 1962 was especially memorable. “Tom called and asked my dad to go to Richmond with him, but didn’t tell him why, until they got there.” It was a special gathering at the Old Senate Chamber of the State Capitol Building, where a new portrait of their late friend Inspector Neville Hatcher was unveiled by then-Gov. Albertis S. Harrison.

speedway continued from page 36 That year, he married Miss Frances Hundley, a teacher who had come to Warrenton in 1928 from Tidewater. By then, America was in the depths of the Great Depression, and virtually all small businesses were struggling. “Tom still had two race cars when we were married, but he sold them because we couldn’t afford them,” wrote Mrs. Frost in her book.

Mrs. Schwab, Harry Edwards’ daughter, recalls the many close friendships her father built over the years, especially with Tom Frost.

charge of the regional storage project, and had four large warehouses built along the present-day Old Bypass for storing the vehicles. In these secure buildings, Mr. Frost maintained over 1,400 brand new 1941 and 1942 automobiles, as well as thousands of rationed tires. One of the men who helped him was Harry Edwards, who came by nearly every day after work, as well as on weekends. In 1945 Warrenton Supply gave up their Ford dealership franchise, and Mr. Frost realized his dream to own and operate the Ford dealership in Warrenton. He built a large, modern showroom and garage on the Bypass near Waterloo Street, which opened in 1946. According to Mrs. Frost, her husband’s combined Ford/Mercury dealership was the first of its kind established east of the Mississippi. He also had the Firestone Tire franchise in his new building. As in the past, Annie Kays was the bookkeeper for the new dealership, and stayed on until it was sold after Mr. Frost’s death in 1969.

The painting replaced an earlier sentimental rendering by Walter Whitehead done in 1944 that showed just Neville’s service cap and gun belt. At the time the first painting was commissioned, the Hatcher family didn’t have a picture of Neville for the artist to use, so his cap and gun belt and the legend, “Although his image is not with us, his memory will live forever” had to suffice. Years later, the State Police sought to properly honor the first of their own to fall in the line of duty, and in 1961, Tom Frost – then serving as Fauquier County’s representative in the Virginia House of Delegates – found an old photograph of Neville Hatcher, sitting in Tom’s racecar at the Warrenton Speedway. The photograph was given to the Virginia State Police, who commissioned Petersburg artist Gertrude Russi to paint Hatcher’s likeness. It can be seen on the VSP Web site, www.vsp.state.va.us/memorial_ gallery.shtm as well as in the gallery at the State Police Academy in Richmond.

The Partnership for Community Resources (PCR) was formed several years ago as a monthly discussion group and support network for people working at agencies, programs, and businesses addressing community problems such as poverty, nutrition, domestic violence, disability, lack of affordable medical, dental or mental health care, and senior issues such as housing, dementia and in-home care. The group meets at 10:00 a.m. on the first Friday of each month in the Sycamore Room at Fauquier Hospital. Meetings are open to the public. “The community feedback from the first edition compelled us to move forward with an updated version for 2014. Volunteers from the community, especially Amanda Rosier-Baker of Oak Springs of Warrenton and Jean Lowe and Edward Jones of the Partnership for Community Resources worked tirelessly to update the content,” said Piedmont Press & Graphics Managing Editor, Krysta Norman. For further information on the Partnership for Community Resources please email PCRguide@gmail.com.


About Fauquier County Partnership for Community Resources: The Fauquier County Partnership for Community Resources is a coalition of approximately 80 groups, both non-profit and government, which was formed to create better working relationships between its members as well as with other organizations in Fauquier County.

& the arts

On Pointe Dance Studio Provides Instruction with Professional Experience Since 2011 the Lasley Centre for the Performing Arts has been classically teaching Fauquier County dancers. Owner, Kalie Lasley wanted to provide young and aspiring dancers the opportunity to have a studio that would educate and train in a nurturing yet structured environment. Their staff is built completely from professional dancers in the area that have impressive resumes, which include professional dance experience nationally and aboard. The centre just recently opened a brand new facility in Vint Hill that will handle their increased enrollment as well as future class offerings. For only being opened for two years, the Lasley Centre has positively influenced the dance community and has put on splendid performances. “We are training dancers who, theoretically, will perform at the 50

Kennedy Center,” Lasley described the studios goals. The centre’s philosophy and instruction has much to do with their success. Within their positive environment they work to encourage personal growth from each student as a whole. This growth includes personal responsibility, both in terms of practice and performance in their artistic disciplines and their conduct outside of school. Lasley and staff all recognize the importance of etiquette, proper speech, appropriate behavior and poise; together they work to instill these characteristics in each dancer. Possessing the training, technical skills and professional performing experience, Lasley instructors are able to prepare students to pursue careers in the arts and to ensure that all students regardless of their potential career goals improve themselves.

“We were very careful and thoughtful about our environment,” she said when building the Lasley Centre. Their instructors have danced with the San Francisco Ballet, the Joffrey Ballet, Ailey II as well as holding many leading roles on Broadway. This experience is intricate in their instruction and provides students with insight and first hand knowledge from previous and working professionals. Lasley worked hard to build staff that not only had impeccable resumes, but that were diverse in their backgrounds and possessed the ability to instruct and communicate in a variety of ways in order to reach all of their students. The centre offers instruction in ballet, pointe, modern, tap, jazz, hip hop and ballroom. on pointe continued on page 52 Warrenton Lifestyle

“We looked at this group of teachers and kept saying “look at these teachers, we could do something really amazing,”” she said when describing the potential of starting the dance school with her daughter. Mark Rubin their Ballet Master has professional credits to the Bertram Ross Dance Company and the Batsheva Dance Company as well as others. He has been teaching for over thirty years before coming to the Lasley Centre. Rubin specializes in ballet, modern and jazz. The Artistic Director, Belén Rodas, is associated with the Kathy Harty Gray Dance Theatre and is a gifted choreographer and teacher. She is trained in modern and ballet. Original and creative best describe her work as a choreographer as she always presents students with a challenge in both technique and expression. “All of our teachers are lovely, kind people,” Lasley said. Additional instructors are Baakari Wilder who is well versed in tap and teaches beginning, intermediate and advanced classes; Debra Denson is a jazz specialist and has performed on television and toured in Europe; Jodeci Milhouse teaches hip hop and has danced in Disney theme parks at the Kennedy Center and Showtime at the Apollo; Carrie Rodriguez teaches ballet, jazz, modern and liturgical – she works closely with students to help 52

them develop their artistic awareness; Lauren Lasley works with the itty bitties teaching pre-ballet to ages three to six working specifically on development; and McKenzie Waters a ballet devotee since age three is an advocate of dance education, which focuses on dances ability to build character and imagination. Their combined talents and drive to teach have inspired four performances to date with two additional coming this month. Their first performance was in December 2011 at the Manassas Assembly of God as they performed “Imagine Christmas.” The first spring recital in May of 2012 featured twelve exciting performances like the pre-ballet ice dance and Don Quixote, Kitri’s Variation. Their 2013 spring recital grew in numbers and in talent providing an entertaining show. In December of 2012 the centre performed The Nutcracker for the first time and will be presenting it again this month. “Our Nutcracker will grow and expand as we grow and expand,” she said. “Our Nutcracker is only two years old; we felt like it needed to be very representative of who we are. We have our students, teachers and even our parents performing!” On December 7th at 6pm and on December 8th at 4pm the Lasley Centre for the Performing Arts will

present Fauquier County’s first and only homegrown full-length production of The Nutcracker at Fauqueir High School. “We take a lot of artistic license with it because we thought it [The Nutcracker] was boring,” Lasley laughed. “We decided to make it a dream – everything that is represented in the second act we added to the first act.” All of the their previous performances are document on their website and are available to see through video or photo. As the Lasley center continues to grow and make a lasting impact on the community with dance they are hopining to expand. “We are looking to add additional courses in yoga, pilates and fitness classes,” Lasley mentioned as their next step. Lasley Centre for the Performing Arts is located in 7112 Lineweaver Road in Vint Hill near the Covert Café, The Cold War Museum and the Vint Hill Craft Winery. They are currently enrolling for classes for 2013-2014 year and tuition prices are available on their website. For more information on the Lasley Centre please visit their website at lasleycentre.com or give them a call at (540) 905-8311. Warrenton Lifestyle

T’was the night before Christmas, when all through the house Not a creature was stirring not even a mouse; It was then that I glanced there by the tree, Tubs, toilets, faucets-I smiled with glee! There was a water heater, a jacuzzi and fancy fixtures galore. I turned and saw him standing by the door. I heard him exclaim as he flew out of sight, MERRY CHRISTMAS to all, and to all a good night!

Italian Sub

Chef Salad Hamburger

French Toast

A new restaurant on Main Street is cooking up home-style favorites in plentiful portions. Sunny Hills American Grill opened its doors in September replacing an old town favorite, Main Street Grill, to continue serving great food in a casual setting. The wait staff is upbeat and welcoming, offering guests seating at private tables or at the community bar. The generous menu is filled with breakfast, lunch and dinner options sure to satisfy any Warrentonian.

Main Street just got a little


“It’s really different in Warrenton,” said owner, Homin Sehhat. “I’m beginning to learn the community, [we have] the nicest people in the world.” Start your meal with one of their appetizers, soups or salads. Their Wings are meaty and served plain or tossed in Buffalo or barbecue sauce. The Chicken Noodle Soup and the Beef Chili are customer favorites. There are ten salads on the menu ranging from House to Caesar to Tuna to Gyro. The Soup du Jour and the small dinner salad are recommended for a lighter dish. “Our subs are huge,” Sehhat laughed. “We’ve had people come in and order and ask for a box before they start eating them!” The submarine sandwiches are gaining recognition in town for their massive size and loaded toppings. The Italian Cold Cut, Ham & Swiss, Turkey Breast & Provolone and Roast Beef & Swiss are excellent both hot and cold with lettuce, tomato and mayo. The Grilled Veggie is a piled high with fresh vegetables and smothered in provolone cheese. Under Burgers and Things they have sandwiches of all sorts including half-pound burgers, chicken and catfish. The All American Burger is a requested often as well as the flavorful Mushroom Provolone Burger. Their Grilled Chicken Breast Sandwich and the Southern Catfish Sandwich are also notable.

Owner of Sunny Hills American Grill, Homin Sehhat pictured on the left with Chef JR(center) and Rachel(right).

Spaghetti & Meatballs and Fettuccini Alfredo with Chicken top the list of the Entrees. The New York Strip is savory and is an excellent option if you’d like to go sans pasta. They also have platters like Hot Roast Beef, Grilled Chicken and Chicken Dijon. Don’t forget about breakfast, Sunny Hills offers everything from three egg omelets to French toast. “I decided to serve breakfast because there aren’t a lot of places on Main Street that serve breakfast,” Sehhat mentioned. The Spinach Omelet is folded with tomatoes, green peppers, onions, cheese and salsa. Their Knock Out

Platter boasts two pancakes, two eggs, roasted potatoes with bacon, sausage or ham. The Trim Line Platter offers health conscious guests a dish with two eggs, sausage, bacon, sliced tomatoes and a vanilla yogurt with peach compote.

Lifting Your


DESERT ROSE RANCH & WINERY Let’s head over to Hume Virginia for another great local wine tasting! The winery is Desert Rose Ranch and Winery. Not only do they make great wines but they are serious about their horses as well. Bob and Linda Claymier, the welltraveled owners of Desert Rose, started with horse and cattle and in 2004 planted their first vines, the Norton Grape. Soon thereafter they added Cabernet Franc which is quickly becoming one of the best varietals for the Virginia Wine industry and turned out to be my favorite on this visit. Desert Rose Ranch and Winery offer several very nice wines, Chardonnay, Ole Moo Moo (a changing blended white), Cabernet Franc, Merlot, ‘Sparky” (a rose’ blend), “RED” a Chambourcin, A Port Style plus a fruit and a sweet wine - I did not get to the last two. As I mentioned I liked the Cabernet Franc the best and as it ages I believe this will be a great dinner wine with

Oh the Taste of a Local Wine! nicely grilled meats like a New York strip or Filet Mignon.

The “R.E.D.” ( RETIRED AND EXTREMELY DANGEROUS ) Chambourcin was also very nice. I picture myself next to the fireplace or fire pit sipping on a glass or two of this delightful wine. Of course everyone knows the best way to end the day or evening is a Port Style glass of wine. Again Bob and Linda have done a fine job with their Starboard Port style wine, it’s delicious and made with Virginia Norton grapes. Desert Rose Ranch and Winery is just that, a beautiful ranch and a beautiful winery rolled into one, pet friendly, children friendly and wine drinker friendly. You may notice I didn’t go into fancy words or descriptions about the wine and varietals because that is not what this place is about. Bob and Linda offer really good wine in a really nice setting, surrounded by really nice people, so stop in and see them soon. I’m sure you will enjoy.
