Ironman Bike Mechanic Bob Leftwich ready on race day

Warrenton’s Clark Kent Bike Shop owner, Bob Leftwich, leads dual life by Aimée O’Grady

If you need to get a hold of Bob Leftwich, owner of the Bike Stop in Warrenton, you had better hurry. In a few short weeks, he will be assuming his alter ego as a bike mechanic for Ironman ® (IM) Competitions, a role he has performed for the past decade for 20 annual events. This year, that number is expected to rise to 30 events. In 1984, Leftwich opened the Culpeper bike shop before coming to Warrenton. Leftwich has had his shop in the Warrenton Village Center since 2010. Prior to that, he operated a store near the Warrenton Greenway. In addition to selling bikes, the Bike 6

Stop offers group rides on mixed terrain as well as on roads. They also conduct monthly workshops on bike maintenance and safety, including what repair gear to ride with and how to use it. Leftwich became an IM bike mechanic through contacts in North Carolina. In 2005, a former employer from a Raleigh bike shop reached out to him about an opportunity with IM. At the time, that shop was the official bike shop for Ironman and was looking for mechanics to hire for the events. Leftwich felt privileged to receive the invitation and accepted the offer. He soon found that working as an

event mechanic was an endurance challenge not unlike that faced by IM competitors. The Ironman competition began in 1978, when John Collins, a US Naval Commander, and his wife, Judy, had the idea to combine Oahu’s 2.4 mile swim race, 112 mile bike race, and 26.2 mile marathon. On February 15, 1978 fifteen athletes, including Collins, accepted the challenge and met in Waikiki to compete in the first Ironman competition. Today, there are nearly 200 Ironman-sponsored events occurring annually in over 30 countries. There is also an Ironman 70.3, half the distance of a full Ironman. Leftwich mainly works US events but has taken a few trips outside the States to work events in Brazil and Canada and works at both the full and half distance events. When Leftwich arrives on site for an event, he begins a week-long endurance challenge of his own. At the competition site, Leftwich represents SRAM, the Official Pro Warrenton Lifestyle

Hang in there, Spring is around the corner! The 5 Golden Rules for Home Staging: 1. DEPERSONALIZE Remove personal items that will distract a buyer from being able to see the home as theirs and not yours.

2. MAXIMIZE/ DECLUTTER Highlight and maximize the space in your home by removing items from your home that aren’t essential. Overcrowded rooms and closets tend to make a house look smaller.

3. SANITIZE A deep cleaning is the easiest and least expensive part of staging your home and has a lot of impact.

4. NEUTRALIZE Neutral paint colors appeal to a wider variety of buyers.

5. MODERNIZE Consider simple changes like hardware and fixtures that will make your home look current.

The Bike Stop sells a variety of bikes including off-road, road, and TT (time trial).

Neutral Support provider for the US Ironman series. Having worked the events for so many years, the faces he sees at each site have become familiar. “It’s same group of guys at each event. Over the years, we have all gotten to know each another.” For a Sunday race, he and his team of only four other mechanics arrive on Tuesday and begin constructing a bike shop four times the size of the Warrenton shop in the IM event exposition hall. The team of mechanics assists upwards of 3,000 IM competitors with maintenance, repairs, and even bike rentals. For international competitors, they receive and prepare bikes shipped to the competition site. For four days, the team works on competitor bikes, logging at least twelve hours each day. Come race day, Leftwich is up by 4:30 am. The pro athletes hit the swim portion of the IM at 7:00 am. By this time, Leftwich’s team has pumped nearly 2,000 tires on bikes racked and ready for the road course. At 8:00 am, he is on his motorcycle following a pack of riders. He will follow riders until the bike course concludes at 5:30 pm, with only one fuel stop…for the motorcycle. During this time, the mechanics will repair 200-250 bikes. As a veteran mechanic, Leftwich is responsible for all the riders in the CEO Challenge. The normal entry fee for an IM competition is around $700. CEOs can enter the CEO Challenge 8

for a staggering $10,000 entry fee. This provides them with valet service for the duration of their stay at the event site. “I have to provide excellence in service to the VIP athletes of the event prior to the race, whereas on race day all athletes are equals,” explains Leftwich. The CEO entry fee is donated to charity. The mechanics offer neutral support for all IM competitors. They are not there to help any one rider finish the bike portion of the event. They do not carry any one rider’s gear. They are there to ensure that all riders have the best possible chance to finish the ride, rack their bikes, and head out for the run. The SRAM website explains that their race-day technicians are “equipped with the fastest wheels and surest hands on the planet [to] support competitors.” Kathleen Higgins Nevill, owner of Carter and Spence on Main Street, Warrenton, has competed in three half Ironman distance events and emphasizes the need of a bike mechanic while in the race, “I would say bike mechanics are essential in triathlon. It is like NASCAR - the mechanics make the difference between finishing the race or not. Except the bike mechanic has to keep moving along the race course - judging where to be and when. An amazing skill on its own.” Nevill explains how a competitor can train for months, perhaps even years for an Ironman competition and a flat tire could end

their race. Thanks to the spare tires the bike mechanics carry on their motorcycles, flat tires can be repaired and give all riders the opportunity to finish the bike course. Having been a mechanic for so many years, Leftwich has his share of stories. At one event, Leftwich remembers a first-time female IM competitor. The event took place on a looped course, which means the pro athletes eventually lap the slower riders. One of the pros struck the first-time competitor’s bike, severely bending her wheel and damaging her gears. Leftwich was able to repair the bike by replacing the tire and removing all the gears, making it a single-gear bike. The flat course made this a feasible solution to enable this first-time competitor to finish the ride. The damage done to her bike shorts, however, was another issue. Having torn her shorts when she hit the ground, she was unable to ride. Leftwich called a female mechanic and reported a “wardrobe malfunction.” After some consideration, the two Warrenton Lifestyle

Leftwich Helps Pro Woman Regain Her Lead

Mechanics the day before the 2014 Lake Tahoe Ironman. mechanics ripped up one of their motorcycle rain covers, and the rider used it to cover her torn shorts. “She was one of the riders whose bike I looked for on the rack when the bike course closed and was happy when I saw it,” Leftwich said. “There are some riders that you want to make sure finish the ride. That’s our job, to make sure they all rack their bikes,” he explained. When asked why he continues as a mechanic for the IM competitions, his quick response is, “That’s a good question.” But after some thought, Leftwich describes the energy level at an event. Over 3,000 international athletes convene for an IM event. For the pros, Ironman is their livelihood. It is what they train for all year long. For others, Ironman is the endurance challenge of a lifetime. The event will take approximately 7 or 8 hours for a pro athlete to complete. A strong athlete is looking at a 12-hour day. The average bucketlist competitor, however, will be facing a 17-hour endurance challenge unlike any other. Leftwich explains the excitement near midnight, at the 17th hour of the event. “These competitors don’t quit. They keep going so they can be finishers, to hear the official voice of Ironman Mike Riley announce “you are an Ironman” as you make that final approach to the finish line. The following morning, for those whom placed in there division receive mention, trophies and some win a slot allowing them to compete at the World Championship in Kona, Hawaii held every October, these folks

are recognized at the athletes awards breakfast .” Leftwich also says that “it is very encouraging to see all the competitors, especially the survivors, line-up and prepare for the event.” Some are cancer survivors, others are war heroes, but all leave a strong impression on Leftwich. Some IM competitors have even lost limbs in combat and are competing with prostheses. The league of survivor competitors is inspiring. Of course, there is also the travel. Leftwich has had the opportunity to visit some of the most beautiful areas of the country, including Kona, Hawaii and Lake Tahoe, California. After some events, he is able to add a few days to his stay and play the role of tourist. There is an appealing technical challenge to being an Ironman event mechanic as well. During the race, Leftwich has a limited number of tools. He has to repair breaks with what he has on hand. “It’s not like the shop, where I am familiar with most of the bikes that come through for repairs. On the course, I come across things I have never seen before,” explains Leftwich, who enjoys getting a glimpse at some of the most advanced bikes available, some not even on the market yet. And when the event is over, the last bike packaged up and ready to ship, and the event bike shop torn down, Leftwich takes off his official SRAM mechanic uniform and returns home to Warrenton, until the next IM event beckons.

“Being a pro level bike mechanic can, and this past year has proven to, be a game changer. At the Steelhead 70.3 triathlon in Benton Harbor Michigan, in the pro women’s field Caitlin Snow was battling for position with Ashley Clifford. Snow had the lead on the bike as I’m roaming the course on the Moto. I didn’t know how far behind the women leaders I was at the time when I came around a sharp corner on the race course and there Snow was pulled off the side of the road her wheel was locked in place into the bicycle rear triangle of the frame. Snow did not have a clue what happened: it was running fine then suddenly locked up. On the approach I had a good idea what was going on just by her action and the loose chain and her trying to spin the wheel by hand. As I assisted her along the road the second place female quickly passed and Ashley Clifford took the lead, with a little luck and raceday “magic” I was able to quickly resolve her problem getting her back on the bike within minutes. It was a mechanical fix that had to be resolved by a bike tech with the proper tool not something an athlete could have done on their own. Snow was back on the course and caught Clifford and eventually won the race. Afterwards she approached me with a sincere thank you.”

Desperately Seeking Love by Michelle Kelley, LCSW


form of love is most important. I would say that all love is important and equal in value. So why do we allow one form of love to take precedence over another? Possibly it is because we have not stopped to really think about this. We need to challenge our thoughts and the messages we have received from others, our culture and the world. I encourage you to do so now. I have counseled many girls and women who are “desperately” seeking love. Sometimes it’s to help them feel complete, to feel valued or special, or to cover up their feelings of lack or not feeling good enough. Being in love or falling in love can be equated to a euphoric state – similar to a drug-induced state. Yes, it’s fun and exciting but whether we know it or not, it’s usually just temporary. And then what happens? Then our old feelings of not being good enough or feelings of lack may resurface. We might even think we are with the



hy are so many people desperately seeking love – as if it can be found outside of them or in another person? What is love? And can a single description or label contain the essence of love? I won’t pretend to know everything about love, but I contend there are different types of love. For example, I believe there is only one pure form of love, which the Greeks called Agape. Agape love is a more perfect form of love. It’s the love between a mother and a child or between God and man. There is another form of love which many of us feel very connected to and that is Eros love. Eros was the Greek god of love. This form of love represents romantic or sexual love. In our Westernized civilization it can be difficult not to over-focus on romantic love. The media and our culture seem to place high value on romance. We have eaten of the apple and many of us believe or act as if this

wrong person or we are the wrong person. Our thinking can get very wonky when it comes to love. Around the end of elementary school is when I have noticed a trend with girls. They start the “boyfriend talk”. And by middle school they are in full swing dating mode. Of course “dating” means they officially like each Warrenton Lifestyle

other and it could last for several days or several months, on average. During this time girls share with me how “special” they feel and how important it is to them to “fit in” and be in a romantic relationship. The point is that early on girls are receiving messages about the importance of being in a romantic relationship. Some begin to search for or desperately seek what they consider to be “love” for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately some women never outgrowing this “someday my prince will come” mentality. I know plenty of women – single, divorced, widowed – who are still searching, and I fear they are searching for the wrong thing. Several years ago when I was talking to my youngest daughter, I mentioned that we were in a relationship. I could tell she was a bit shocked at my use of the word “relationship” because she probably was thinking about a romantic relationship. After talking with her about all of the different types of relationships in existence, she then asked me if we could break up. Of course, my response was “Never. I will never stop being in a relationship with you – even if you one day choose not to be in a relationship with me.” In case you didn’t know, it only takes one person to be in a relationship. This is definitely contrary to popular

belief. Relationships are created and nourished within one’s heart, and so the other person’s participation is not necessary though it may be desired. Remember, love is not controlling or demanding. We should broaden the container we have created for love. Love need not be confined to a special, romantic relationship for love makes all relationships special. So in this month of February, the so called “love” month, how about focusing on different types of love…the love you have for your children, your friends, your family, your work, your pets or even life itself. If we look for love in places other than romance, then we will most likely find it wherever we look.

Champions for the Poor

FEEDING FAUQUIER How we’re helping Fauquier’s most impoverished, Part I by Danica Low

On a cold and rainy Saturday this holiday season, 150 families waited in line at True Deliverance Church in Bealeton to receive a box full of dinner food – which they would serve on their holiday table. For seven hours, Fauquier folks who struggled to provide themselves with a meal, came and went…leaving with a box full of fixings and a large-sized turkey. The next day at 4pm, a single mother with three young children knocked on the doors of this church and asked to be fed. She had no way of providing a holiday dinner to her family and needed help. She pleaded for assistance, even though the food distribution had ended. Rev. Tyronne Champion and his wife Felicia, who pastor the church and lead the local non-profit Community Touch, were prepared. Fortunately, they had purchased enough food to provide 600 people with a holiday meal the day before at the food distribution, and had some left to share. The young mother walked away with a large turkey, eight cans of

Cornerstone Baptist Church’s Feed Fauquier event created 50,000 servings of macaroni and cheese for low-income residents of Fauquier over the coming months. For some, this will be the only hot meal they eat in a day. Photo courtesy of Feed Fauquier 18

vegetables, four cans of fruit, a bag of potatoes, and four boxes of macaroni and cheese. And perhaps just as important as the food in her arms, she left with a hope in humanity, having been loved by members of her community when she needed it most. A Number We Can’t Ignore Perhaps a startling fact to some of us: 4,500 people in Fauquier are impoverished.* Historically, Fauquier County’s poverty rate is significantly below the Virginia state average (9.6%) and the national average (12.4%). However, of Fauquier’s 67,207 residents, 5.3 percent, or 3,562, live below the poverty line. *According to the 2013 U.S. Census Bureau, last revised December 2014. This number does not include residents in the Town of Warrenton, as its data is collected separately. Of the Town of Warrenton’s 9,862 residents, 9.5 percent of persons live below the poverty line, which is 937 people.* The Champions have made their lives a crusade to help others in need. And like a lot of other do-good organizations in Fauquier, they rely on contributions of time and resources from others in the community. Fauquier boasts hundreds of nonprofit organizations and there is an abundance of awareness and care for those in need and with special needs in this County. But, what are we doing to help feed Fauquier’s hungry? And are we all doing enough? Let’s take a closer look. For starters, Rev. Champion, Sharon Ames at the Fauquier Community Food Bank, and Pastor Mike Poff of Cornerstone Baptist Church, among others – groups large and small, work passionately to ensure Fauquier is fed. From large year-round operations to small bountiful efforts, every citizen’s hands are making a difference in this crusade to feed our neighbors. Since November of 2001, when the first arm of Community Touch, Inc. (a food pantry) opened, Rev. Champion says it has fed people 45,000 times. Community Touch consists of two homeless shelters in Fauquier (Victory Transitional 20

Housing), a food pantry, Noah’s Ark Outreach Program (which offers free furniture and clothing closet) and Noah’s Ark Thrift Store (open to the public). Turkeys Warm the Heart The Food Bank has quite a reach as well. And plays a large role in feeding Fauquier’s impoverished during the holidays. Each summer, five to six months prior, Ms. Ames is notified by the USDA of how many turkeys the Fauquier Community Food Bank will receive to distribute to needy residents for the holidays. Because this year that number came up short for the 850 families she was preparing to serve, Ms. Ames sought the help of the Fauquier community. And the community responded. The local Giant grocery store added a prompt at the end of cashier checkout this holiday season, stating: “Would you like to donate $3.99 to the local food bank today?” Lord Fairfax Community College students started a “Fill the Fauquier Freezer” campaign and encouraged others to donate a turkey to the Food Bank by taking a selfie with the purchased turkey and posting to Facebook. The local Police Department participated in this Facebook challenge as well. And perhaps making the greatest impact, Drs. Woodside and Sentz family and cosmetic dentistry and its patients offered to match every turkey donated to the Food Bank, bringing in $4,000 worth of turkeys. “There are a lot of people I know of that were able to sit down to enjoy a holiday dinner, who otherwise would not have,” said Ms. Ames of the wide-spread effort to contribute turkeys and food to the Food Bank. Its slogan, “Giving a Helping Hand” underestimates the impact this non-profit has on Fauquier.

“You have to wear compassion,” said Ms. Ames, “and there are a lot of hats you have to wear.” She’s referring to the many situations she deals with every day, and the varying needs across Fauquier’s impoverished. Additionally, 115 gift cards were given out to needy families to purchase a pre-cooked turkey, ham, or steak for a holiday dinner, as some do not have an oven large enough to cook their own. Many of these gift cards were contributed by Fauquier citizens. Winter Woes Year-round, the Food Bank feeds approximately 60 families each day. But, in the winter, that number grows exponentially. Summer jobs such as construction and landscaping are non-existent in the winter. Heating costs, clothing needs, medical care due to winter illnesses, and a desire to purchase holiday gifts for family members, all contribute to making the winter season more costly for us all – but the impact on the poor is great. Rev. Champion points out that some chose to purchase Christmas gifts for their children instead of buying food for their families, or will choose to heat their homes instead of purchasing food. And to help meet this need,

many organizations have been hard at work. The Powers of Mac N Cheese One recent event, called “Feed Fauquier” brought together 400 volunteers across organizations at the Highland School to prepare 50,000 servings of a nutritiously-fortified version of macaroni and cheese. Aside from the astounding number of meals made, the other remarkable aspect of this event is that this was accomplished in a four hour period of time. Volunteers stood side by side and across from each other at filling stations, and donned in gloves, hairnets and aprons, weighed, counted, separated, filled and packed each of the 50,000 servings of pasta and dried cheese sauce. “It was amazing to see folks all across Fauquier come out to help,” said Josh Hayden, a volunteer, organizer and participant in this event. “There is a job for everyone in a Feed Fauquier event – anyone with a helping heart and who is able to stuff pasta into bags, has a place here.” Many children and teens between the ages of 5-18 participated. These 50,000 servings of macaroni and cheese were distributed to the Fauquier Food Bank, Community Touch, the Fauquier Weekend Power Pack Program, and Fauquier County Food Distribution Coalition. Ms. Ames said of the macaroni and cheese meal, “We cooked it and we liked it…we wanted to taste it to see what we were giving our people. It is an excellent product.” She makes sure those served by the Food Bank do not feel less than. (Ms. Ames is quick to point out the Food Bank does not distribute food in the typical boxed fashion – people are encouraged to use a shopping cart and go through the store to find what they need.) “Getting the Feed Fauquier event off the ground was fairly simple with the hands and efforts of many,” according to Mike Poff, an organizer of the event and Pastor of Cornerstone Baptist Church. In order to purchase the $12,500 worth of macaroni and cheese meals, 22

Cornerstone Baptist Church called for donations from its congregation and the local business community. Pastor Poff was astonished at how much funding was raised in a two month period of time. To fill the gap, each participant who prepared the bagged meals paid $10. “This was not a fundraiser, one hundred percent of the registration fees went to purchasing the food for Fauquier families,” said Pastor Poff. “This was not your regular food drive or soup kitchen. We literally all worked together side by side, and across from each other in an assembly line, to meet our goal for our community.” It Takes a Village In December, Fauquier County Public Schools delivered 12,000 lbs. within 3 buses full of food to the Food Bank, as part of a “Stuff the Bus” campaign. Students, faculty and staff at all County schools contributed. Highland School delivered another 2,000 lbs. of food by bus. Organizations such as Fauquier County Public Schools, Messicks Farm Market in Bealeton and other local grocery stores also contributed to the Food Bank to help feed the hungry in Fauquier through the holidays. And of course, the Fauquier County Food Distribution Coalition reaches hundreds every month as well, as a collaboration between Fauquier County government agencies, civic organizations, businesses, and churches. Every third Saturday from 9-11am at Warrenton United Methodist Church, “food items are distributed at no charge to those who qualify or demonstrate need.” “People need to know that folks are going hungry every day of the year, not just during the holidays,” said Ms. Ames. She reminds us that the winter months continue to be a most difficult time for the hungry. “These are not just stories of people, these people are REAL and these stories are their lives,” said Rev. Champion. “We’ve been doing this long enough to know, when cold weather hits, that’s when we’re going to want to make sure we have the resources to help.”

How you can help now The Fauquier Food Bank currently requests the following items: canned meat, hot cereal (oatmeal, cream of wheat), pancake mix, condiments (ketchup, mayo, syrup, mustard), canned fruit, soup, canned vegetables, boxed meals (hamburger helper, tuna helper), baby food (plastic containers only), diapers and wipes, personal Items ( soap, deodorant, shampoo). Donations are gladly received Monday – Friday, 9am to 3pm, and it is located at 249 East Shirley Ave., Warrenton. Community Touch, Inc. currently requests monetary donations here: http://www. communitytouchinc.org/howyou-can-help.html Other contributions needed include: road pavement work; linen/beds including sheets, blankets, pillows, new and used beds for the shelter; donated food or grocery gift cards to purchase food for the food pantry; toiletries including toilet paper, soap, trash bags, light bulbs; new door locks; fundraising ideas: if you have a fundraising idea or project to help the homeless, feed the hungry or to provide household furnishings please Community Touch at (540) 439-9300.

Fauquier Health Fauquier Hospital Earns Accreditation as Chest Pain Center


Dr. Michael Jenks heads up the Fauquier Hospital Emergency Department.

auquier Hospital received full accreditation status as a Chest Pain Center from the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care (SCPC) on December 12. The threeyear accreditation from SCPC is the result of the rigorous evaluation of Fauquier Hospital’s ability to assess, diagnose and treat patients who may be experiencing a heart attack. The accreditation assures that processes are in place aimed at: reducing the time from onset of symptoms to diagnosis and treatment; treating patients more quickly during the critical window of time when the integrity of the heart muscle can be preserved; and monitoring patients when it is not certain that they are having a heart attack, to ensure that they are not sent home too quickly or needlessly admitted to the hospital. Michael Jenks, M.D., chief of the Fauquier Hospital Emergency Department, explained, “Hospitals that have received SCPC accreditation have achieved a higher level of expertise in dealing with patients who arrive with symptoms of a heart attack. They emphasize the importance of standardized diagnostic and treatment programs that provide more efficient and effective evaluation, as well as more appropriate and rapid treatment of patients with chest pain and other heart attack symptoms. The accreditation process has been a long and worthwhile process that has involved every one of our hospital departments.” Rodger Baker, CEO and president of Fauquier Health, added, “Our clinicians and support staff have done an amazing job, examining our protocols and processes to make sure that folks who come to our Emergency Department with chest pain are treated quickly and effectively. This accreditation comes after more than a year of focused work in chest pain care.”

Fauquier Hospital Offers 3-D Mammography New 3D mammography (also known as breast tomosynthesis) is an advanced, clinically proven screening and diagnostic tool for early breast cancer detection. During the 3D mammography exam, the X-ray arm sweeps in an arc over the breast, taking multiple low dose images. A computer produces a 3D image of the breast tissue in one-millimeter slices, providing greater visibility for your radiologist to see breast detail in a way never before possible. As a result, early breast cancer detection is significantly improved and the need for follow-up imaging is reduced by 15 percent. With conventional digital mammography, the radiologist is viewing all the complexities of the breast tissue in one flat image. Sometimes breast tissue can overlap, making normal breast tissue look like an abnormal area, or potentially hiding a small cancer. By looking at the breast tissue in slices, the radiologist can provide a more accurate exam. Several recent clinical studies show that 3D mammography demonstrates a 40% increase in the detection of invasive cancer and a 29% increase in the detection of all cancers. A screening mammogram is an annual mammogram that is done every year, when there are no signs or symptoms of a problem. A diagnostic mammogram is used to evaluate a specific symptom of possible disease, such as a lump, or to further evaluate a specific area of the breast as follow-up to a screening mammogram. 3D mammography complements standard 2D mammography and is performed at the same time, with the same system. Low radiation exposure Fauquier Hospital is the only facility in the region to have the lowest dose technology available for 3D mammography. This allows for both the 3D and 2D images to be taken with the same radiation dose as 2D images alone. It also means that the length of time a woman is in compression is the same as only a 2D examination; some 3D systems require double the compression time. 3-D mammography can benefit all women who undergo a standard mammogram, either a screening or a diagnostic examination. However, it may be even more beneficial for a woman’s first baseline mammogram; for women 40-60 years old; women with a significant amount of dense breast tissue, and women with a personal history or a close family history of breast cancer.

Call 540-316-5800 to schedule your annual 3D screening mammogram appointment at Fauquier Hospital. You must have a doctor’s order to schedule the exam. 24

Key areas in which an Accredited Chest Pain Center must demonstrate expertise include:

• Integrating the emergency department with the local emergency medical system • Assessing, diagnosing and treating patients quickly • Effectively treating patients with low risk for acute coronary syndrome and no assignable cause for their symptoms • Continually seeking to improve processes and procedures • Ensuring the competence and training of Accredited Chest Pain Center personnel • Maintaining organizational structure and commitment • Having a functional design that promotes optimal patient care Heart attacks are the leading cause of death in the United States, with 600,000 people dying annually of heart disease. More than five million Americans visit hospitals each year with chest pain. Another important aim of the SCPC accreditation is to significantly reduce the mortality rate of these patients by teaching the public -- through community outreach programs -- to recognize and react to the early symptoms of a possible heart attack.

Brain Games

and Play for Your Dog by Charlotte Wagner

Mental stimulation through interactive toys and structured play is one of the most important and overlooked elements of dog ownership. A lack thereof is commonly linked to nuisance behaviors such as: excessive barking, destructive chewing, pacing and restlessness, hyper activity, digging, and inappropriate drive behaviors. Consider incorporating brain games and activities into your routine to help manage and prevent the backlash of boredom. Dispensing Food and Enrichment

Many interactive toys today are designed to be stuffed with food in order keep our furry friends mentally engaged, occupied and entertained. Swapping out food bowls for filler toys is a great way to provide enrichment during meal times. Food dispensing toys are great for assisting in crate training, redirecting chewing, pacifying your dog when alone, pacifying when visitors are around, and so much more! A variety of toys are designed for dry, wet, raw, or home made foods and can be frozen for prolonged use. Amongst the most common brands are: Kong, StarMark, Busy Buddy, Buster Cube, and JW toys. 26

Problem Solving Brain Teasers

Pet retailers have become increasingly savvy to the intellectual needs of our canine companions. A variety of companies are now producing problem solving puzzles that require physical manipulation by your dog to gain access to a hidden reward. These are a great way to provide your high drive dog with appropriate problem solving opportunities. Keeping your dog mental engaged will also assist in exhausting energy and allow for redirection of inappropriate destructive behavior. These puzzles come in a variety of forms and substrates with the most popular being the Nina Ottossen and Kyjen toys. Warrenton Lifestyle

Appropriate Interactive Play

For dogs play is the mimicry and role rehearsal of hunting, fighting, and courting behaviors. We see this through their jumping, mouthing, chasing, shaking, pulling, and wrestling gestures. Structured play through toys and games is a great way to add fun mental activity, establish rules, increase impulse control, and further strengthen your bond. Consider playing these games with your dog:


Some dogs are more natural than others at retrieving, however all dogs can learn to enjoy this game given the opportunity to learn. In order to retrieve the dog has to perform a variety of tasks including: targeting the toy, carrying it, recalling to owner, and giving up the toy. Try practicing each step separately and reward your dog for grabbing it, holding it, or dropping it in front of you. Start off in a low distraction setting with a high value toy in a confined space so your dog has a high success rate.


Tug of War

This game is appropriate for dogs that have some obedience, control, and drive, but is not ideal for dogs who are impulsive and have no boundaries. High arousal during tug can lead to accidental nipping or biting, and further over stimulation. Make sure your dog learns a good “give” or “drop” command and ensure to use a specific “tug” cue when playing. Tug is a great way to introduce play as a reward into your obedience training routine.

Hide and Seek

This game is fun to play with the whole family and helps strengthen recalls. Start off by calling your dog back and forth in plain site and reward for successful arrival. Once this is well rehearsed try hiding in separate rooms around the house and calling your dog’s name followed by the “come” cue. Outside run in opposing directions to speed the recall and consider hiding behind trees, shrubs, and other places.

A few things to remember when playing with your dog:

• Make sure you are the one initiating and ending play, a dog that has learned to drop toys in your lap for attention can become pushy and develop into a nuisance. • Keep your dog’s arousal level at a moderate level during play to minimize hyper, impulsive, and inappropriate behavior such as excessive barking, grabbing, and jumping. If your dog becomes over-stimulated interrupt play and allow him to calm down before resuming. • Establish rules to play by and stick to them! This minimizes inappropriate behaviors and allows you to incorporate obedience and control behaviors into your routine. Keeping your dog stimulated will help relieve symptoms of boredom and increase the human canine bond. It’s time to ditch the food bowl and spend some time integrating play into your routine for a happy, healthier hound!

SEASONAL AFFECTIVE DISORDER S easonal Affective Disorder, commonly known as S.A.D., is a seasonal depression that happens with the change in seasons. While it can happen at any time of year, most often I find the most people suffer from late November through March, most profoundly in February. Many people get the “winter blues,” when it’s too cold to go outside, cloudy, rainy, snowy, icy. Activities get cancelled; it’s more difficult to get places and there’s a post holiday kind of let down. However when the 5 or more symptoms of depression occur almost all day every day for a period of two weeks or more, it’s time to get help.

symptoms, know that it is very treatable. Take the time to call a doctor or therapist. Here are some of the suggestions I make to clients. 1. Plan specific activities that are fun and keep you involved with and connected to people. This gives you things to look forward to and keeps you from being isolated. 2. If you can plan a trip to a sunny place, great. If you cannot, some of my clients tell me that a sun lamp works for them. 3. Get involved with activities that give you a sense of purpose. 4. Get moving! Even if you can’t go running outside, little rebounder trampolines work well, as do treadmills and other aerobic equipment…but they only work if you use them. 5. Join a dance class, go dancing, practice an indoor winter sport. 6. Eat a healthy diet; resist the urge to binge on simple carbohydrates as comfort food. 7. Laugh. Go to funny movies, rent funny videos, play with your kids. 8. Get professional help if you need it.

So to help with this, I have decided to offer funny movies as a service to the community. Fauquier Health is offering the space, as well as popcorn.

February 2015




Our future has crumbled. In the late 2020s, the grid finally flickered out for the last time, succumbing to attacks from a newly formed Resistance, fuel scarcity, and general entropy. It is now the year 2037 and many have died, with the few that managed to escape death solely concerned with their daily survival. Gavin Collier is one of those lucky few, but survival alone isn’t enough for him anymore. Recognizing that the meaning of life didn’t crumble along with the rest of the world, he embarks on a dangerous and personal journey. Gavin’s family had been surviving with little help from the outside world, but now they must come together with their neighbors to fight for their land and those they love. Personalities clash, lives are lost, and fear is inescapable. They all must struggle to keep their humanity in this new, brutal world. Gavin knows that they must prevail at all costs, and keep the flames of freedom and faith burning during one of humanity’s darkest times.

AFTER THE CRUMBLE A post-apocalyptic story of love and death in 2037

Devon Porter, a local farmer and banker, has released his first novel, After the Crumble, in the first of a four-book deal with Prepper Press. The story is set in the year 2037 where Porter merges northern Fauquier and southern Loudoun counties into the fictional “Colton County.” The book touches on several of Porter’s hobbies, such as hog farming, gardening, and self-sufficiency. Porter renews the concept that hope is our greatest resource in the darkest of times; that the human spirit will always endure. Porter offers, “I deal with several themes, including the fact that no matter what the circumstances, human beings will find a way to adapt and flourish, and still have love, faith, family, and joy in our lives.” “I wrote After the Crumble as a fan of the dystopian genre (postcollapse society), and I felt I had a unique perspective on the subject. This novel centers around two people

that fall in love in a world where survival is a struggle and communities must rely on one another. After the Crumble is packed with action, has a hint of science fiction, and will generally appeal to anyone interested in a fictional setting centered in Virginia,” says Porter. In a story that is quite enjoyable to read, Devon Porter, a true Renaissance man, manages to offer us lessons in history, theology, politics, music, romance, the art of war, farming, literature, family -- all with a tongue-in-cheek sense of humor. Porter lays out the blueprints of what might come of our society. As you read the book, you’ll realize that much of what is happening today is already part of this novel. Get a copy before it’s too late! And call me a Crumblehead. - T.T.

Shocked at the fragile and toxic state of farming across the planet, Devon Porter began prepping and growing his own food. After studying slow collapse theory, Devon came to the conclusion that the Crumble is happening now, and will continue to accelerate in the years to come. He believes that population pressure, resource scarcity, hyper-complexity, and environmental degradation will continue to intensify, until the creaking machine of industrial civilization is finally brought to a halt. After the Crumble is gaining significant buzz and its Facebook page already has more than 10,000 “likes,” The novel’s website features video blogs and interactive articles.

Good Times R In a Box of O


Rediscovering the Warrenton H by John Toler



Warrenton Lifestyle

s Recalled Old Photos


n High School Class of 1959

It has been said that looking into the past is like visiting a foreign country, since “things are different there.” You need not go very far back in time, or far from home, to realize that this is true. Born in Warrenton in 1941, Joseph M. “Joe” Austin was the eldest son of James F. “Jimmy” Austin and Drusilla Davis Austin. Jimmy was one of the partners that owned the Blue Ridge Hardware on Main Street, as well as a member of the Town Council and Center District Supervisor. Joe graduated from the old Warrenton High School on Waterloo Street, Class of 1959. From there he went to the University of Virginia, where he earned a degree in Engineering, and after graduation, married Sandy Ikenberry, of Lexington, Va. After a long career in engineering ranging from working on the Apollo space capsule to computer design and software, Joe and Sandy settled in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts. He retired in 2009. In 2011, Joe found a box of old photographs he and Arthur Portnoy had taken in the 1950s, when they were partners in the “Austin and Portnoy Studio.” Arthur was the son of Ted and Molly Portnoy, who for years owned the Lerner Bros. Department Store on Main Street. The photos ranged from 1953, when the boys were in seventh grade, until they graduated in 1959 – Joe from WHS, and Arthur from Randolph-Macon Academy. “After developing the photos in my darkroom (the Austin home on Winchester Street), we took them to school and sold copies – 10 cents each for a 3x5 print,” Joe recalled. “We had fun playing around with the equipment, learning about exposure times, cropping pictures, and trying out different editing techniques. As beginners, the quality of many photos suffered.”

After the rediscovery of the old photos – and an awareness of the passing of several of his high school classmates – Joe felt that the best of his collection should be published in a book, and “…as soon as possible.” Contacting some of his friends, Joe began adding to his collection, identifying people in the photos, and recalling when and where they were taken. Among those contributing photos to the project were Sue Bowman Sutherland, Anne Rogers Bradley Greene, Bill Candler, Janet Sophia Craft, Fred Hufnagel and Marshall Wallach. “It was rewarding to see that many of the pictures (in his book) were still in classmates’ keepsake boxes,” said Joe. “Several were loaned to me for this collection, some making up for ones lost from my own horde.” Photos also came from old copies of The Memoir, the WHS yearbook. In addition to those who contributed photos, others involved in the creation of Joe’s book included Bob Powell and Larry James. Assistance in identifying the people in the photos was provided by Robert “Pooch” McClanahan, Gina Farrar, Joe’s sister, Dru Austin King, Peggy Hiner Moynihan’s WHS Web site, www.fauquier00.com., and the collection of yearbooks loaned by Anne Rogers Bradley Greene. “Particular thanks go to Bill Candler, our resident magazine editor, who provided extensive proofing of this work,” said Joe

(1) In 1953, Bill Candler and Kay Harris were among the Warrenton teenagers who were enrolled in dancing lessons, which in addition to teaching dance steps, helped them to learn how to ‘break the ice.’ (2) Among the seventh graders who went on a class trip to Washington, D.C. in 1954 were (front row) Mary Ellen Armstrong, Alice Clark and Sandra Poe. Back row: Janet Sophia, Sharon Greene, Sue Bowman, Nancy Noland and Barbara Hagen. (3) Most teen parties had a theme. In 1954, Anne Rogers Bradley hosted a ‘Hobo Party’ at her parents’ home on Winchester Street.

in the acknowledgements. “And to Bill’s fiance’, Jean Trask, who after seeing these photos, was ‘perfectly happy to see all of Bill’s unrequited crushes preserved only in pixels,’” hence the title of the book, Pixels in the Cloud, Teenage Photos of the 1950s. An interesting part of the book is the “Cast of Teenagers,” where Joe lists the names of 129 WHS students from the classes of 1956-62 that appear in the book, and a note about what happened to them after graduation, if known. Each person in the “cast” is listed alphabetically by first name, in order to make it easier to locate the names of the girls who have married, and have a different last name. In the list and the details it provides, there are likely to be a number of surprises, even for those who have no recollection of WHS. After going through three drafts before the final, Joe’s book was made available to classmates and others who attended Warrenton High School, or lived in Warrenton in the 1950s. For those, Pixels in the Cloud will have a flood of memories, and a sentimental impact. Others who read the book – especially those under age 50, and

newcomers to Warrenton – will enjoy a true snapshot of the lives of teenagers growing up in a much different time. LIFE IN THE 1950S Most of the teenagers in Joe’s book were born during World War II, at a time when the population of Fauquier County had been steady for years at around 25,000 people. There were four high schools back then: Warrenton, Marshall and Cedar-Lee for white students, and W.C. Taylor in Warrenton for AfricanAmerican students. There were only 26 in the WHS Class of 1959. While many of the students had been together since grade school, reaching adolescence changed their relationships. In 1953, the Arthur Murray Dance Studio, sponsored by the Soroptimist Club, came to Warrenton, offering ballroom dancing lessons for teens, much to the delight of their parents. Lessons were given at the Warren Green Hotel and St. James Episcopal Church. “The classes did a good job of teaching us the basics and breaking the ice,” Joe recalled. The teens were taught standard adult dances like the waltz, polka and jitterbug, but not the other

latest “teenager” dances that were gaining popularity. “Those we learned on our own later – with a little help from our friends,” said Joe. Dancing lessons were offered in Warrenton well into the 1960s. “I think our parents wanted to provide a safe and healthy social life for us, because we were approaching, or were in the puberty stage, and they wanted us to have parties in the homes,” added classmate Sue Bowman Sutherland. “We pretty much took turns having parties after those dance lessons… our parents were great at providing the refreshments and a 45-rpm record player, and then kind of scooting into the other room and letting us dance and have fun.” Subsequently, a group of parents organized a “party group” of about a dozen of their teenaged children, which would get together at one of their homes every two weeks or so. “It was not an exclusive membership, but the parties were by invitation only, and usually included other friends, schoolmates, siblings, cousins and visitors from out-of-town,” said Joe. “This group formed a nucleus for other parties, and many of us were included in parties by others.” Besides Joe and Arthur, whose fathers were prominent businessmen in Warrenton, regular attendees included Susanne Marriott, whose father, Richard Marriott was the mayor of Warrenton, and Betty Scott Haley, daughter of Dr. Byrnal Haley, who succeeded Judge Marriott as mayor. T. Eugene “Gene” Grimsley was the son of Warrenton Police Chief Turner Grimsley, and Anne Rogers Bradley was the daughter of Fauquier county Public Schools Superintendent Carson Bradley and his wife Dorothy, an elementary school teacher. The party group was eventually disbanded as some of the original members “drifted away,” and the social group was expanded. Dress was usually semi-formal, unless there was a party theme or outdoor activity. In addition to

dancing, games were played during the early years. “Some of the parties were held in the living rooms of the homes. Most, however, were held in a finished or semi-finished basement area set up as a recreation room,” said Joe. “On several occasions in the summer of 1955, my sister Dru and I hosted a few casual get-togethers at our house. Indoor activities included dancing and cards, while outdoors, the favorite was a game of ‘Capture the Flag.,” In addition to the Austins, Bradleys and Haleys, other parents who hosted parties included Bruce and Barbara Noland, Paul and Leah Candler, and Barney and Zinnia Harris, owners of the Warrenton Motor Lodge north of town. A memorable gathering took place in 1958 at Canterbury on the Springs Road, hosted by the parents of Martin Choberta. Summers were spent hanging-out at the private Fauquier Swim Club. Not all of the group were members, but often came as guests. “Even though we were all good swimmers, there wasn’t much swimming going on,” wrote Joe. He notes that the pool was large and of an unusual design, a shack for the snack bar and restrooms, and a round “kiddie pool.” The photos in Pixels in the Cloud show how bathing attire has changed over the years: “…the boys wear more, and girls wear less,” according to Joe. SCHOOL ACTIVITIES As the teens advanced at WHS, they became involved in the school’s social life, including sports events, dances, Homecoming and the annual JuniorSenior Prom. A Freshman Class Picnic was held each year for the entering class, chaperoned by WHS Principal P. B.Smith (1892-1962) and members of the faculty. They also participated in club activities, including a Junior Classical League Picnic behind Fred Kines’ parents home (today the site of Battlefield Baptist Church on U.S. 29) in 1957, and later in the year, a JCL Banquet, complete with togas.

(1) At a party hosted by the Choberta family at Canterbury in 1957, Robert ‘Pooch’ McClanahan, WHS Class of 1956, played a game of pool with George Littrell and Larry James. (2) The theme of the 1957-58 WHS Junior-Senior Prom was ‘Around the World in 80 Days.’ Mrs. Mildred Bartenstein, an unidentified student, and Bobby Utterback (on ladder) hung the symbolic, hand-made globe in the old school gymnasium.(3) Teenagers spent the summers of 1957-59 at the Warrenton Swimming Club. Shown above are (from left) Beverly Harrison, Dru Austin, Linda Eakin, Betsy Goin, Fred Hufnagel and Nancy Noland.

Richard ‘Dick’ Winter was a substitute teacher at WHS in 1958. (3) P. B. Smith, shown in his office in 1958, was the principal of WHS for many years until his death in 1962. Joe Austin notes that Mr. Smith was the principal of WHS when his parents graduated in the early 1930s. (4) Photographed while on their Senior Trip to New York City in 1959 were from left: Joe Austin, ‘Tilley’ Minter, Anne Rogers Bradley, Danny Canard, Susan Heineken and ‘Buddy’ Curtis.

Seated, from left: Charlotte Curtis Beck, Alice Clark Budd, Sue Bowman Sutherland, Anne Bradley Rogers Greene and Lewis Sublett. Standing: ‘Buddy’ Curtis, Bill Candler, Bobby Powell, Larry James and Tom Dineen. (6) Joe Austin The theme of the 1957-58 JuniorSenior Prom was “Around the World in 80 Days,” based on the motion picture of the same name. Joe’s junior class was responsible for decorating the gym at WHS. “Decorating for the prom was so much fun,” recalled Anne Rogers Bradley Greene in Pixels in the Cloud. “Nancy’s mother (Barbara Noland) helped us with the backdrops. She was so very talented.” Teachers and staff also helped, including Mrs. Gertrude Fell, Mrs. Mildred (“Miz B”) Bartenstein, and Miss Mildred Buckner. Joe collected a number of photos for the 1958 prom for Pixels in the Cloud, but only a few were found for the 1959 prom, which was based on the movie Gone With the Wind. Perhaps the climax of the 1958-59 school year was the Senior Trip to New York City. Joe Austin recalls that “Miz B,” was one of the chaperones, and while

there was partying in the hotel, everyone behaved appropriately. Sue Bowman Sutherland also enjoyed the trip, which included visits to Radio City Music Hall, the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty. “On the way back, we stopped at a restaurant for lunch, and were astonished at the prices,” recalled Sue. “Well, it was expensive by Warrenton standards.” In May 1959, members of the WHS school band, led by Drum Major Pete Hume, and majorettes, including Carolyn Fletcher, Sue Bowman and Carolyn Sutherland, marched in the Fauquier County bicentennial Parade. After graduation, the group went their separate ways. Some went to college and became teachers; Nancy Noland returned to teach English at the new Fauquier High School, and Sue Bowman, to the recently-opened Loudoun Valley

High School, where she taught Spanish. The Vietnam War started in 1959, and over the next decade, several WHS graduates served there. All would come home, but the most seriously wounded was Capt. Reid Dennis, USMC, who lost a leg in Vietnam. Sixteen men from the WHS classes of 1957 to 1962 who served in the military are honored in the Dedication at the beginning of Pixels in the Cloud. Also remembered in the Dedication are the names of the 21 classmates featured in the book who have passed away, “…with regrets that I was too late to share these reminders of our happy times with them,” noted Joe. A limited number of copies of Pixels in the Cloud are available for $29.95 plus $5 shipping and handling. To order, write Joe Austin, Blue Reb Studio, 100 Harrington Farms Way, Shrewsbury, MA 01545

When to Use It? by Dr. Holly Moriarty

Have you ever had an injury and wondered if you should use heat or ice? I’m sure you have, we all have. In the next few paragraphs, we will help you decide which option is the best for you based upon a few variables. Heating an area is ideal for increasing blood flow, reducing muscle spasm, and increasing range of motion. Cooling an area is ideal for decrease swelling and pain; ultimately numbing an area to decrease the pain sensation. Always Ice a newly injured area for 10-15 minutes, every hour. Keep in mind, NOT to apply ice directly to skin. Ice packs can be gel packs from the store, a frozen bag of peas or crushed ice from the freezer. Never heat an injury within the first 24-72 hours because the healing process has already created inflammation around the area. Adding heat to an already inflamed area is going to make the pain worse by increasing the blood flow which can lead to increased pressure. After 72 hours, you can alternate between ice and heat. If heating and cooling does not fix the problem, seek treatment from a qualified Sports Chiropractor, Primary Care Doctor or Orthopedist. A good sports chiropractor understands these types of injuries. They will help you reduce the pain and discomfort in addition to strengthening the injured area to limit the possibility of reoccurrence.

Virginia Sports Chiropractic of Warrenton is a local sports chiropractic office in Warrenton and their sister office is Haymarket Physical Therapy and Chiropractic in Gainesville, VA. Dr. Holly Moriarty, DC, Sports Chiropractor and owner and Cierra Washington, ATC, Athletic Trainer. 44

Irish Flair & fare M cMahon’s Irish Pub & Restaurant offers an authentic taste of Irish hospitality, Gaelic cuisine and lively spirit to Warrenton. Native sons and daughters opened McMahon’s in 2006, recreating a true Irish atmosphere with pub décor and charm that can only be matched by mother Ireland. This pub and restaurant welcome the whole community, as a place for family and friends to gather to share a warm meal or a cold Guinness. “We’ve made McMahon’s a place that is comfortable for everyone,” Manager John McCulla said. Get started with a Spring Mix Salad that has a blend of spring mix lettuce with fresh cucumbers, tomatoes, shredded carrots,


McMAHON’S IRISH PUB & RESTAURANT homemade croutons and a zesty balsamic vinaigrette dressing. Perfect to share with the table, the Guinness Brie Wheel is served warm with raspberry jam and Irish brown bread. For a classic Irish appetizer, order the Boxty. It features a large potato pancake served with a variety of toppings and sauce. The Corned Beef Boxty is a favorite with tender slices of corned beef brisket with a homemade horseradish sauce.

Their traditional entrees are hearty and plentiful like the Irish Bangers & Mash with genuine imported braised Irish pork sausages served with generous portions of sweet peas and Gaelic champ covered with a red wine shallot sauce. A fresh homemade puff pastry overflowing with carrots, sweet peas, Gaelic champ and tender pieces of chicken in a savory herb sauce create the comfort classic Thatch Cottage Pie. Warrenton Lifestyle

Gaelic Steak

Manager John McCulla

McCulla enjoys the Wild Mushroom Ravioli, “This is easily one of our best dishes.” Pockets of ravioli pasta are filled with ricotta cheese and porcini mushrooms and smothered with a roasted red pepper coulis. It’s served with toasted Irish brown bread. The Head Chef, Tim Skeels, prefers the Gaelic Steak: a marinated and grilled center cut Delmonico rib eye topped with crispy leeks and served with seasonable vegetables and Gaelic champ. “This steak is hand-cut and prepared individually, making it one of the best steaks in town,” Skeels said. Make sure to save enough room for dessert; their sweet treats are made with love daily. The Irish Bread & Butter Pudding is a traditional bread custard with raisins and drizzled with an Irish whiskey sauce. The Chocolate Mousse is divine with Belgium chocolate hugged into a creamy wave of decadence with a touch of fresh whipped cream.

McCulla noted that the Bailey’s Irish Cream Cheesecake is always in demand. “If I had to guess what make’s it so good, it’s the mix of imported coffee, Bailey’s Irish Cream and extra cream cheese.” McMahon’s Irish Pub & Restaurant is located at 380 Broadview Avenue next to Red Hot & Blue. They are open seven days a week: Monday to Friday 3:00pm to 2:00am, and Saturday & Sunday 11:00am to 2:00am. Fridays and Saturdays are especially entertaining with live music in the pub starting at 9:00pm. On Sunday bring the whole family for an evening of traditional Irish music played by local musicians and a tasty Roast Beef dinner special. McMahon’s also offers gluten free menu items. For more information on the menu, upcoming events or private parties please visit their website at www.mcmahonsirishpub. com, call (540) 347-7200 or email info@mcmahonsirishpub.com.

PEARMUND CELLARS It’s About the Wine

Fauquier County is home to many fine wineries, but few bear a name that commands respect as readily as that of Pearmund Cellars. For more than a decade Pearmund has been producing many of the most enjoyable wines in the state and helped several other wineries, and the Virginia wine industry as a whole, to grow. Located a few minutes north of the town of Warrenton, the winery sits in the center of Meriwether Vineyard, holding some of the oldest vines in Virginia. The drive takes a meandering 52

path through the vineyard, which Chris Pearmund first bought in 1993. After the purchase of the now 38-year-old vineyard (the first vines were planted in 1976), Chris replanted parts of the vineyard as Chardonnay, capitalizing on the exceptional conditions for the grape on that site. Today only Chardonnay is grown there, with all other wines being made from grapes brought in from other nearby vineyards. Approaching the winery, you are greeted both by a view of the crush pad holding the press and destemmer and by the winery’s security system: a large, gentle golden retriever named Tug. The interior atmosphere is simple yet elegant: a large bar dominates the tasting room and wide glass doors lead to the barrel room, where one can sip on a glass and relax while perusing the barrels to see what is aging for the next year. Outside, the patio and lawn stand ready with warm fire-pits and

chairs among the vines viewing the old colonial house and the barn that has stood since the 1920’s. Anywhere you wander you are presented with the golden rule of Pearmund, the defining slogan: “It’s About the Wine.” The wine that this atmosphere focuses on is quite deserving. The tasting list is longer than average, usually encompassing eleven wines. The Chardonnay, of course, is the estate wine: the balance of bright fruit and butter (from the Malolactic fermentation) accompany a strong body built by the Sur Lie style of barrel aging- rarely done in Virginia. This leaves the Lees (dead and dormant yeast produced by fermentation) in the barrel during aging, allowing the yeast cells to release amino acids into the wine. Another popular white is the Petit Manseng (of which Pearmund is the highest producer in the state), full of grapefruit and lemon peel. Ideal for Warrenton LifestyLe

Thai or fish dishes, it is the Virginia wine for Sauvignon Blanc lovers. A Viognier is practically expected at a local winery, but this one smooths the tropical flavors of the grape with a touch of barrel aging, using (among others) Acacia barrels to impart a hint of a floral tone. A surprising off-dry Riesling concludes the whites, using an unusual yeast to accent notes of peach, tangerine and orange peel. The reds descend from the traditional styles of Bordeaux. A Merlot (lightened by the rains of 2011) leads the pack with many different fruit flavors: most notably, blackberry, raspberry, cherry and cranberry tied together by a toasty vanilla. The light body and many flavors allow it to be used much like a Pinot Noir, ideal for pairing with many diverse foods at once. The appearance of a Cabernet Franc is no surprise, and brings raspberry and fennel tones melded with a bit of pepper. Petit Verdot grows better in Virginia than anywhere else in the world, and as a single varietal has a powerful aroma of earth and leather that combine with big jammy fruits on the tongue. It is a reliable wine to pair with an evening of grilling. A Cabernet Sauvignon is the smoothest of the reds, balancing a hint of Mediterranean acidity on the front with a bit of natural sweetness on the finish. The reds flourish even further

with the Ameritage blends, done in a Bordeaux style. The classic Ameritage is dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot while including Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Though it is lighter bodied due to the rains during 2011’s harvest season, it has the strength and tannin to stand up to your steak dinner. The Ameritage Reserve is darker (being of the 2012 vintage), using equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Malbec. The musty nose and longer finish create an excellent after-dinner sipping wine that could pair equally well with a cigar or a steak. The Late Harvest Traminette is a rich dessert wine full of honey, toasted nuts and a powerful texture. For those looking for extra special bottles, the Cabernet Franc Reserve, Washington State Syrah and elusive Black Ops blend are released on special weekends, but are always available to those who ask. While it is easy to sum up the wide variety and great quality of wines produced at Pearmund Cellars, nothing can replace the experience of tasting them yourself. For those who are more interested in the wine itself than in the winery, you will be happy to find like-minds at this establishment. Though dogs and children are welcomed, the calm atmosphere keeps the focus where it belongs. It’s about the wine.
