New technologies, changing tr aditions
Mr. Minter noted that before the Civil War, embalming was basically unheard of. Instead, the deceased was placed on a “cooling table” (which used blocks of ice) in the home or church, and the service conducted as soon as possible after the death. Transporting the bodies of soldiers killed for burial at home forced the expanded use of embalming, but as Mr. Minter points out, it was the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln that brought embalming to the forefront. “Lincoln’s body was embalmed, and although it took two weeks to get the remains to Illinois for burial, there was no problem,” noted Mr. Minter. “In those days, embalming fluid was probably injected with a syringe. Later, embalming through the circulatory system was perfected.” 8
Until the mid-1950s, funeral home hearses often doubled as ambulances, providing transportation for the sick or injured. However, Moser Funeral Home had a dedicated ambulance, a dedicated hearse, and a vehicle that could be adapted for either uses.
W.E. Sudduth was a licensed embalmer as well as funeral director, and started this practice in Warrenton. Still, many funeral services were being conducted at the deceased’s home, and embalming was done there also. “They had ‘home equipment’ that included the cooling table, candles, crucifixes, cosmetic and torchiere lamps, and a matching backdrop and kneeler, which I still have,” Mr. Minter explained. “A bulb syringe that forced the embalming fluid into the body. Or they used gravity. The blood was taken out from the same site, and the embalmer’s helper took the blood out to the garden.” Mr. Minter recalls that when his grandfather died in 1949, the funeral was at home, but there was a problem. The body was embalmed at the funeral home and placed in a casket, but when the casket was brought back to the home, it couldn’t be brought through a doorway, and had to go through a window. This
was often the case at home funerals. After World War II, the practice of conducting funerals in homes was on the way out. Changing demographics and new clients’ expectations drove the demise of the home funeral. Families had been split up by the wartime mobilization, with members often living in different states. When a death occurred, the logistics involved clearly required a new level of service; a much better presentation of the deceased could be accomplished with the equipment in use at the funeral home. In addition, with families so spread out, a family church affiliation might no longer exist, and houses were no longer being built that could accommodate a home funeral. The funeral home still gets requests for home services, which they will provide, recognizing that this type of funeral still remains a family tradition. “It is all about tradition, but some of these traditions Moser continued on page 10

are becoming less important to the next generation,” Mr. Minter added.
Move to the Bypass
By the mid-20th century, it became apparent that due to its “landlocked” location on Main Street, the funeral home was unable to expand to meet changing demands. By then, the company was owned by Edloe J. Sudduth’s daughter, Blanche Sudduth Moser (1891-1958) and her husband, Robert L. Moser (1883-1963). It was decided to move the funeral home to the Warrenton Bypass, next to Mrs. Moser’s Colonial Inn tourist home. Completed in 1955, the new funeral home had a chapel, air conditioning and a parking lot, which the former location lacked. However, it was relatively small and was referred to by some as a “cracker box,” according to Mr. Minter. But from the beginning, the community responded to the changes, and in the first year, the number of funerals performed at the new location increased from about 80 to 120. For many years, the funeral home had operated an ambulance service, which was basically used to transport injured people to the hospital or doctor’s office, since drivers had no emergency medical training beyond first aid and providing oxygen. Most ambulances doubled as hearses, or vice-versa. At one time, Sudduth Funeral Home had both a “straight hearse” used only for funerals, a “straight ambulance” for transporting live patients, and a “combination vehicle” that could be used for both. New government regulations and the demand for better emergency service resulted in the establishment of the Warrenton Volunteer Rescue Squad in 1957, and funeral home ambulance service ended. Repose of the deceased at the funeral home instead of a residence freed the family from the ordeal of sitting up with the dead, and the purpose-built chapel for visitation and services offered an alternative to a church service or simple graveside service. “We always felt that 10
a family was underserved if there were a burial without a visitation, where they can get the support they need,” remarked Mr. Minter. “It is also important that in these busy times, if people can’t make it to the funeral service, they can come to the visitation.” The name of the funeral home changed from Sudduth to Moser sometime after the death of Blanche Sudduth Moser in 1958. The business passed to Robert and Blanche’s sons Charles W. E. Moser (1920-1981), Wallace W. Moser (1924-1969) and J. Donald Moser (1927-1986), all of whom worked at the funeral home. Eldest son Robert L. Moser Jr. (19141990) had sold his interest in the business in the early 1950s. The three brothers continued
The Moser family sold the funeral home to Randy Minter (standing) and Herb Duckworth in 1986. Mr. Minter became the sole owner in 1994.

the operation, expanding the building, the services offered, and the staff. Randy Minter had worked at the Everly Funeral Home in Fairfax while he was a student at Fauquier High School, and joined Moser Funeral Home in 1980, after receiving his mortuary training at the Pittsburgh Institute of Mortuary Science. In 1986, the remaining members of the
Moser family were planning to retire, and were approached by a conglomerate, and other out-of-town funeral homes, that were interested in acquiring the business. But the Mosers wanted to continue local ownership, and the connection to the community that had been built over the past 150 years. Expressing the desire that it remain Moser continued on page 12

“a family business,” Donald and Betty Moser (the widow of Wallace Moser) sold the funeral home to Mr. Minter and fellow funeral director Herb Duckworth. The sale took place just two weeks before Donald Moser passed away. “We knew that they wanted their tradition of commitment and service to continue,” recalled Mr. Minter. “I never knew Wallace, but I did know Charles and Donald Moser, and I hold them, and the Moser, family in the highest regard.” Sometimes, the responsibility of running the funeral home was daunting. “When faced with a tough decision, I would ask myself, ‘What would Charles and Donald do?,’” he recalled. In 1994, Mr. Minter bought out Mr. Duckworth and became the sole owner.
New Cemetery, other services
Another milestone was reached in 1990 when Moser Funeral Home established Bright View Cemetery, off Lunsford Road southeast of Warrenton. “There had been a newspaper article about the Warrenton Cemetery soon becoming filled, and there was a run on the remaining plots,” recalled Mr. Minter. “There was an obvious need for another cemetery close by.” After a three-year search, and the funeral home purchased the open, rolling 10.5-acre site. Following an arduous permitting process and several public hearings, Bright View Cemetery – which Mr. Minter describes as a “long-term investment” – was opened. There are sections for flat and upright monuments, as well as a columbarium. To date, there have been over 900 burials at Bright View, with about 4,000 plots remaining.
In addition to building expansions completed in 1990, the funeral home added a crematorium in 2006. The staff has continued to grow in order to meet the demand of about 350 funerals a year. This includes six licensed funeral directors, four full-time assistants and three part-time hostesses. Mr. Minter’s wife Robin, a CPA, serves as the funeral home’s accountant. For several years, Mr. Minter has been appointed by the governor to serve on the state Cemetery Board and state Funeral Board. His involvement has included recommending and writing statutes and regulations, and conducting hearings to address consumer complaints.
Mr. Minter recalls a personal experience which help lead to his decision to become a funeral director, and ultimately to join Moser Funeral home. He was only 15 years old when his mother Elizabeth, 48, died suddenly at home on a Sunday morning in 1975. Her sudden death came as a complete shock to the family. “According to her physician, Dr. James Dellinger, she was in better health than she had been in years,” said Mr. Minter. “The rescue squad arrived and could not revive her. They took her to the hospital, where the medical examiner performed an autopsy that showed that she had died from a pulmonary embolism,” recounted Mr. Minter. “By 1 p.m. that afternoon, other family members had Moser continued on page 14

descended on the house. I remember my Dad (W. B. ‘Dick’ Minter), saying to his sister, Nina Thorpe, ‘I just don’t know what to do now… I don’t know what to do.’ A few moments later, he told us, ‘I’m just going to call the funeral home. They’ll know what to do.’” He picked up the telephone and called Moser’s, and Charles Moser answered. “I remember Dad’s face and his whole demeanor changing as he talked to Charles,” he recalled. Details as to what needed to happen right away were discussed, as well as explaining the responsibility for the autopsy and death certificate. Once these issues were resolved, Mr. Moser suggested that the Minters come by the funeral home the next day to discuss the arrangements, and told them what to bring. “When Dad got off the phone, he said, ‘I feel so much better. Here is what’s going to happen,’” recalled Mr. Minter. “We were accepting of that help, because we considered Charles our friend. He covered things we didn’t even know enough to ask about.” What impressed young Randy was the Mosers’ sense of concern, and the belief that they would always be there for his family. This is the ideal he has sought to fulfill throughout his professional career. This is borne out every day, when families come to the funeral home to make funeral arrangements. “You have to bear in mind that when you sit down around the table with the family, each one is in a different stage of grief,” Mr. Minter explained. “Some are angry that their loved one has died, and I’m the one they take it out on. Others may feel guilt because they think they did not do enough for the deceased while they were still alive. That’s just human nature, and you can’t change it.” It is clear that since Mr. Minter came to Moser Funeral Home 31 years ago, the community has changed. “Back then, I probably knew eight out of 10 people who came to the funeral home. Now, it’s more like two out of 10.”
On to the future
As part of their 175th anniversary observance, Moser Funeral Home is expanding its efforts to “give back to the community” by increasing its support to the Fauquier County Fair, and sponsoring a Christmas Concert to be performed by the Piedmont Regional Orchestra.

Comprehensive Breast Care in Your Community After an intensive review and thorough site visit, the Breast Center at the Cancer Center at Lake Manassas has been granted a threeyear full accreditation designation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a program administered by the American College of Surgeons. The Breast Center offers comprehensive, multidisciplinary breast care. Its physicians and technologists are ready to help women cope with the physical as well as emotional consequences of breast cancer. Sanjeev Aggarwal, M.D., radiation oncologist at the Cancer Center at Lake Manassas
Dr. John Williams, breast surgeon
Accreditation by the NAPBC is given only to those centers that have voluntarily committed to provide the highest level of quality breast care. During the rigorous survey process, the center must show that it complies with standards established by the NAPBC for treating women who are diagnosed with the full spectrum of breast disease. The standards include proficiency in the areas of center leadership, clinical management, research, community outreach, professional education and quality improvement. A breast center that achieves NAPBC accreditation has demonstrated a firm commitment to offer its patients every significant advantage in their battle against breast disease. Physicians at the Breast Center make a special effort to communicate about all
their patients. The group of about a dozen physicians – including medical director of the Cancer Center, radiation oncologist Sanjeev Aggarwal, M.D. – gathers every month to talk about the physical and emotional needs of their patients. Together, they share techniques and compare notes on their patients’ surgical, chemotherapy and radiation treatments. “Breast cancer is very complex,” says Dr. John Williams, breast surgeon. “Particularly when I use a new technique, I need to know how my surgery is going to affect a patient’s radiation or chemotherapy treatment. That’s why we make this effort to talk to one another.” Receiving care at an NAPBC-accredited center ensures that a patient will have access to: • Comprehensive care, including a full range of state-of-the-art services. • A multidisciplinary team approach to coordinate the best treatment options. The team includes physicians specializing in breast surgery, medical oncology, radiation oncology, plastic and reconstructive surgery, radiology and pathology. • Information about ongoing clinical trials and new treatment options. • Most important, quality breast care close to home.
For more information on the Breast Center, call 703-753-4045.

This organization was created in 2008 as a glimpse of hope to orphans that had taken refuge in a rundown building in povertystricken Haiti. Thirty children were discovered staying there, covered in scabies and their little bellies bloated from starvation and worms. With funding and support from locals in our area, Helping Haitian Angels was created and is now seeking nonprofit status. Their mission is to provide spiritual and physical aid to hurting orphaned children in Haiti. They provide meals, clean drinking water, a bed, clothing, shelter, tuition, resources for education as well as medical care. Safety, education and health are their top three priorities and currently Helping Haitian Angels has been successfully providing these to their children. A stable home with security has been established for forty-two orphans with three local women offering care for the kids. All of the children are enrolled in 18
school to help define a path for their future through education. Sewing and carpentry programs were also created for the kids to give them a valued skill set. The children receive meals, they have fresh water, showers, toilets and are visited by a medical professional. Helping Haitian Angels has provided hope for these children. They are always in need of volunteers, donations and support. You can follow their progress and learn how to get involved at www.HelpingHaitianAngels.org Following are stories from two Highland School students, one, Kim Ennis, experiencing Haiti for the second time and the other, Jordan Leake, for the first time. When it came time to choose their senior service project this was an experience of a lifetime. Warrenton Lifestyle
uring the month of May, my senior class got a chance to explore an internship or create a project with the approval of Highland School. I knew right away that I wanted to go back to Haiti. My first trip was in July of 2009, and ever since I have waited to get the opportunity to go back. That first trip has been embedded into my mind for two years and has changed my life ever since. My initial reaction when arriving in Haiti for the first time was mind-boggling. I knew that it was one of the most poverty stricken countries in the world, but it didn’t set into my mind until I got there. The drive to our hotel was an incredible wake up call, potholes as deep as I was tall, trash piling up in the streets, and hundreds of people that did not have any shoes. This is a place with limited clean water, where the majority of the population walked from place to place, and kids wandered the streets without a home. In a place like this, they need all the help they could get. I wanted to be one of those people to make a difference. On May 19th of this year, I sat on the plane anxiously waiting to get back to Haiti. It was amazing that this trip was able to take place and that I was also bringing another friend from school to take part in this experience. Things were the same, but at the same time things seemed to have slowly gotten better. Less trash was sitting in the streets, police were enforcing traffic, and a new water tank was being built in Cap-Haitien. Unfortunately, these small adjustments are miniscule in comparison to the turmoil Haiti will continue to experience for years to come. I know that my part was small, but what mattered was that I had a part. I was there with the organization Helping Haitian Angels, and they run an orphanage in Haiti that also participates with a church near the orphanage. Debbie and Bill Harvey, who I met through church, are the people who started it all. Not all, but a good number of kids are off the streets because of there selflessness. I got the chance to be a part of these kids’ lives - I was convinced that I was going to change their lives, little did I know, they were going to change mine. Inside the walls of the orphanage, Kay Anj 42 kids reside. As Jordan, another senior and friend of mine from Highland, and I walked through the gates of the orphanage we were greeted by a mass of Haitian children and teenagers. Some, I had met two years ago, others were new faces to me. I immediately reconnected with a piece of my heart I left here years ago. For orphans who knew nothing about us, we were immediately accepted. All they knew was that we were here to help. Most importantly, we were there to play with them for hours on end each day. This recent trip for my senior project, I wanted to do something special for the kids. After relaying countless ideas in my head before leaving for Haiti, I had finally come up with an interesting activity. After seeing the reactions on their faces, I knew that making tie-dye shirts with them was a fantastic idea. Trying to translate this project Angels Continued on page 20

in French Creole was a task itself. Our translators didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really know what a tie dye shirt was until the finished project was given to the kids the next day. It was hard trying to keep my composure after seeing the excitement in the kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s faces when they realized what they had made themselves. I never expected to see teenagers and younger kids to be as happy as they were, considering the circumstances they live in. After seeing numerous kids open there hearts up to me after knowing me for less then a week, I knew I was a part of something special. I taught them English, as they taught me French Creole. I attempted to teach them clapping games, as they insisted on teaching me there own. My life changed in numerous ways and I learned so much just because of these 20
kids, my kids. No longer will I waste water or food because of how little of each they get. I now appreciate a different language I had never heard of. Most of all, I have become more accepting of people in all situations. My perspective of the world has been changed dramatically because of the people and kids of Haiti. Whether I am in Haiti, or here at home, I will continue to support and do whatever I can for Helping Haitian Angels. It may be as little as spreading the word about who we are, or as big as going to Haiti and help finish building a church. Haiti will forever more be a part of who I am. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to fathom what life was like before Haiti and the kids. Angels Continued on page 22

Piti Piti N’ap Rive
(little by little we will arrive)
by Jordan Leake
ike most kids, when I hear “Haiti” I think about a poor country and an earthquake. Little did I know that the people of this country were some of the nicest and happiest people that I have ever met. I went to Haiti with a group called “Helping Haitian Angels” for my senior service project at Highland School. HHA sponsors an orphanage in the city of Cap-Haitien that houses over 40 kids ranging from ages 2-16. These kids have already been through so much in their young lives and still face many challenges ahead but yet, never seem to display anything but a smile and love for others. The first day in Haiti brought the impressions of a country covered in trash and many people. However, everything seemed to change when the gates of the orphanage opened. As the van pulled up, a simple beep of the horn signaled a stampede of kids running forward, greeting me and the other group members with hugs and smiles. None of these kids knew who I was, but within a minute being there, I had already formed a bond that would last a lifetime. They asked me my name and I replied, Jordan, what about you? Even though they don’t speak English, there was a form of language that came about. Whether it was hand signals, motions or just doing something until the laughs of the kids made you realize you had messed up. I seemed to bond with the older boys. I don’t think they had seen someone my height, (6’5), so they all took me the basketball hoop. The “play area” is about 30 feet of concrete on a steep slope. I grabbed the ball and dunked it to the screams of excitement of all the boys. That is when the kids dubbed me the nickname of “Kobe Blanc” or white Kobe. The name stuck the entire trip. Before I knew it I was playing basketball with all the boys, until I started complaining about the heat, joking on how I should shave my head. This lead to me being taken upstairs to the boys room where I was sat down for my haircut, my first in about 6 months. The boys shaved my head completely bald. But the way they did it was an experience to witness. It was a team effort, the older boys doing the cutting, the middle age boys cleaning the hair off my shoulders, and the youngest boys sweeping it off the floor. The fun they had, made having a baldhead totally worth it. The next day we took the older kids on a field trip to the Citadel, a castle on the top of a mountain. Although the hike up was grueling and tiring, with the sun beaming down on everyone, the kids never stopped smiling and never complained. They even took the time to help the older members of our group who were having trouble with the climb. The van ride packed with the kids was an Angels Continued on page 24

incredible experience on the way home. We got the kids to sing songs about God and how life can only get better. There voices were amazing, and it gave me chills being able to witness their passion for staying positive. Day 3 gave me an entirely new appreciation for school. The kids’ school consisted of a makeshift 4-room house. The younger kids were in normal rooms downstairs, while the older kids had different circumstances. 2 grades in one room, separated by a 6 foot high wall. The class was made up of cement brick walls, an old green chalkboard, and picnic tables for desks. Yet again, I didn’t see one kid without a smile on their face. They all sat eager to learn in there blue uniforms, taking notes. It was sad when I realized our oldest kids, around 13 to 15, were only in 4th grade. They had been without schooling until HHA was founded, forcing them to start from the bottom. When the kids returned from the 24
orphanage, I got to witness each individual kid’s creativity. One of my friends from school who came on the trip helped each kid design their own tie-dye shirt, letting them spray on the colors themselves. As I attempted to distract 40 kids until it was there turn, I got to see how excited they got knowing the shirt was going to be there own. I was even lucky enough to get a shirt made and I wore mine with all the kids when one of the little boys came up to me and told me, “Now you’re one of us.” Knowing I only had one day left, I planned to make the last day the most memorable. The final day was all about their love for soccer. The older boys have their own team and were playing a group of kids from the city. Their “field” which was basically the size of a tennis court covered in dirt and rocks, was filled with fans. The goals were made out of wood and stood only 3 feet high and 2 feet wide. But there was no disappointment. Our guys scored right
before halftime, the celebration seemed like something out of the World Cup. Everyone was jumping and screaming, and I even got to dance with the team during the celebration. After the game came our time to leave, which was definitely the hardest part of the trip. They told us we could leave the kids something so they could remember us. Lets just say I left the orphanage with only a pair of shorts on. I gave away all I had because I felt I had made such a bond with so many of them in such a short time I could not leave anyone out. The best memory I have is the happiness of each day. This showed in a saying I learned down there. “Piti Piti N’ap Rive” which means little by little we will arrive, which is there way of saying that no matter how hard things may get, they will someday get better. That saying is now tattooed on my wrist. The kids of Haiti showed me that life is full of roadblocks and challenges, but if you go through life with nothing but a smile, than you have no worries.

here arises in each of us from the moment of birth on through our lifetime until our final day a strong desire for independence. Starting with the newborn’s cry of annoyance, each of us is telling the world in our own way that we are individuals with our own wishes, preferring not to be controlled by anyone else.
This cry for independence perhaps stems from an evolutionary struggle for survival but whatever its source, it is a major factor in guiding our behaviors. Throughout life, whether a person realizes he is saying this or not, he is simply stating that “I am an individual person; I am separate from every other human; I have a uniquely different mind and I intend to express my own thoughts.” Not too long after birth comes the period of the “Terrible Twos” when we protest the request of our parents with a constant stream of “no’s.” At 28
that time without understanding the meaning of the word “autonomy,” we begin to recognize our power which to our consternation, is counteracted by an even greater power, be it our parents or a larger playmate in the sand box. Then comes puberty with its potential for self-awareness and its own expression of independence. “Why can’t I stay out until after midnight? I’m not a little kid any more.” A brief moment of happiness occurs somewhere around age 12 when our history teacher explains that “all men are created equal” but quickly subsides in high school when we learn about the right to vote but find we can’t do so until age 18. The concept of limitations by government enters the picture.
Something annoying is happening here. We have the potential for self-awareness, introspection and rational thought. But it turns out that independence can be modified. It is not the one hundred percent freedom we had envisioned while still in elementary school. Yes –
we can vote but are prohibited from drinking alcohol. Anger moves in. If we are eligible to vote and even enlist in the military, why not also be able to toss down one or two? Somehow it seems that as we get older, our independence gradually dwindles away. However we surge onward sensing in our future a freedom where we can do anything we want to do. We are now full-fledged adults with a potential for self awareness, having just obtained a job, and reveling in our liberty only to meet that moment when another dominating power – this time our boss – enters our life and explains just how we are to spend our day. While at work our newly found colleagues continue to press their beliefs upon us. John Steinbeck: “The free exploring mind of the individual human is the most valuable thing in the world. I must fight against any idea, religion, or government which limits or destroys the individual”

Independence continued from page 28
Ever so gradually we come to realize that there is a long arduous journey leading to independence. The feeling of freedom is as enticing as the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow but equally elusive. We learn that there have to be some constraints – that there must be a balance between personal freedom and social order and the balance is formalized in a written agreement called “law.” Our freedoms are defined by the legal system and this system guides us as we move from early adulthood to a maturity which, in turn, pulls us out of our selves to the realization that other individuals also have rights. It is always a balancing act. The government again moves in and we are introduced to the concept of civil rights. It becomes obvious that promoting the well being of our fellow humans is essential to the pursuit of our own happiness.
added that “all men are created equal.” Since then the nation has evolved to emphasize that the term “men” implies all people of whatever gender or color. According to Eleanor Roosevelt: “Everybody is an individual. Nobody can be you. You are unique. Your life is your own. You mold it. You make it.” Might we also on this Independence Day and perhaps on those in the future also celebrate our own independent individuality? We are different from any other human with our own wisdom, our own intelligence, our own power. Those traits distinguish us from others. We are sovereign over ourselves, in charge of our own life. We are given inherent rights but increasing our lifetime happiness is solely our own responsibility. So long as we do not violate the person and property of others, we are
“Everybody is an individual. Nobody can be you. You are unique. Your life is your own. You mold it. You make it.” —Eleanor Roosevelt We cannot all be 100% free. More for me is less for you. There are inherent conflicts. Freedoms collide. We come to understand that increasing our lifetime happiness requires individual cooperation and respecting the opinions of others. As we grow older we develop in terms of understanding both the freedoms and constraints of independence. We learn how to develop mental independence, to listen to our inner voice, to use our internal resources, and to think for ourselves. We create a behavioral independence, making independent choices free from the control or influence of others. Ultimately there comes that time when we have difficulty with what physicians and family members call ADL (Activities of Daily Living) – bathing, dressing, toileting, etc. However, the desire to be independent remains strong. We resist others doing for us what we have been doing all our life. On the Fourth of this month we celebrate our nation’s independence from Great Britain. The first sentence of the Declaration of Independence not only refers to political independence but, refers to the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness held by each individual. It 30
independent and have control over our own mind. The slogan of the Boy Scouts of America is “Do a Good Turn Daily.” A classic joke in the Scouting movement tells of the Scout who got into trouble because he wanted to help this little old lady across the street. The problem? She didn’t want to go. At the age of 16 at my high school graduation I delivered an essay entitled “On The Desirability of Being Oneself.” Here I am entering my tenth decade and I have not changed. I am blessed to have so many friends in this community who, I am sure, will be concerned about me and will make efforts to help me in one way or restrain me in another. Be forewarned, however. I have spent almost a century earning my current independence. I will fight you to the last ditch.

Straight to the
by Katlyn Norman
tanding in tall wellies scuffed with signs of hard work, this 20-something reached out his hand offering an honest handshake and a smile through his thick beard as he introduced himself as Jesse Straight, farmer. Considered part of the Millennial generation whose characteristics include optimism, realism, self-inventiveness, choice of lifestyle, multi-task effectively, and nurturing - Straight has taken these qualities and inspiration from well-known writers to create a sustainable pastured poultry farm in Warrenton. With the completion of his undergraduate degree from the University of Virginia with Pre-Med and Religious Studies, Straight found himself with idle time as he planned to apply for medical school. It was at this time that he became truly inspired by the works of Wendell Berry and his ideal lifestyle changed drastically from doctor to farmer. He liked the connectedness between ones work and ones home. Enthused with the idea of farming, he began reading author Joel Salatin who is also a farmer and as Straight said his hero. Straight described his experiences with the book, “It was totally inspiring both in terms of his ethics and in terms of doing the highest form of quality farming possible in terms of what is good for the land, what is good for the animals, and ultimately what is good for your customers. In combination with that he is a really good business man - he was not your idealistic organic farmer [with the] ‘who cares if you make a living’ [attitude]. Sustainable farming has to produce a sustainable living. You must have farmers that can take care of their families otherwise farms are just going to go away.” The influences of these men and their ideas helped shape Straights future into a successful farm operation.

With no intention of becoming a farmer when he was little Straight recalls “My Dad had a garden but I did not want anything to do with that.” Now with the vision of becoming a farmer, Straight found himself working on a small vegetable garden in Charlottesville and would visit different farms and meet with farmers to understand the lifestyle he was seeking. Currently in its third season, Straight moved his family back to Warrenton to create their own pastured poultry operation. His farm is home to chickens, turkeys, pigs and most recently cows – all raised on sunshine, fresh grass, plenty of bugs and nutritional feed. As the seasons have passed new additions to the farm added to the diversity of his operation. Straight said, “We used to have one kind of chicken but now we have two. We have heritage breed chicken as well as the standard breed, we have laying hens for the eggs and we have the beef cattle.” The practices that are involved with his operation are to produce a clean and sustainable farm. Moving each animal group to a new pasture on a schedule is important to ensure that fresh grass is available. With a choice of animals on a farm rather than just one species, it is beneficial to the farm as well as the farmer. There is a cycle that the animals go through – helping one another. Straight gave an example of the cattle and chickens working together, “Cattle will eat tall grass but the chickens will only eat the shorter grass so the cattle will come through here and mow down the grass for the chickens. Then we let the chickens in and not only do the chickens just have the right size grass but, they will eat the bugs and larva that are in the cow patties which helps the cows stay healthier and get less parasites. So it feeds the chickens and sanitizes your field.” This is an obvious benefit for the animals, but the farmer does not have to spend time or money on mowing down a field that can feed not only chickens but cows as well. “Everything we do we try to do naturally to make the animal thrive. High quality feed boosts their immune system and their growth and we give them clean fresh water. We make sure the bedding is clean so they are not lying in their feces,” Straight explained. Each animal takes months to become a perfectly healthy and tasty morsel, with exclusion to the laying Straight Continued on page 38

hens. The laying hens never get processed because they are always working to produce farm fresh eggs for our community. The farm processes the chickens when they are ready, which is about seven to eight weeks. Straight said, “There is a federal exemption that if you raise your own poultry you are allowed to process it and retail it.” The beef and pork are brought to a processing house to be cut, inspected and sold. In three to four years Straight hopes the farm will grow just big enough to where they are processing 10,000 to 15,000 chickens a year noting that their first season was very small. He estimated this year they will probably do 3,000-3,500 chickens, 300 turkeys, and 30-40 pigs. He added that he is currently learning how to process cattle. “Basically my goal is to make a living doing this,” Straight smiled. Jesse Straight’s Pastured Poultry Farm has made about 60 percent or more of their profit from restaurants. Local restaurants have purchased poultry from him including Airlie Center, Black Bear Bistro, Iron Bridge Wine Company and Claire’s at the Depot. The farm has fresh eggs available daily for personal pick up. The farm also has 10-15 stocked freezers so if anyone is interested in poultry, beef, or pork just place a call the day before you want the meat and it’ll be ready. For more information, tours or products please contact Jesse Straight at (540) 349-3099.

Saint Patrick Orthodox Church
This is the tenth in a series of articles about local churches and houses of worship. The purpose is to introduce you to the distinct features of each congregation, their philosophy and atmosphere. We believe that churches, temples, synagogues, etc are some of our best community centers. As you read about them each month we hope you will find one that interests you and your family. This month, we take a look at Saint Patrick Orthodox Church.
n the season of fresh produce and farmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s markets, it is quite invigorating to live in Fauquier County, where so many families work to preserve a simpler, healthier, and increasingly less common way of life. There has been a growing trend in the past decade, both locally and nationally, to reevaluate oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eating habits and to determine at what point between our hunter-gatherer days and the present fast food era we lost our way. Journalists and pundits in a variety of fields, boldly make connections between our poor food choices and virtually every societal problem or failure Saint Patrick Continued on Page 48

we currently face. Polyculture farming techniques, organic dairy products, and raising oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own meat are considered responsible, forward-thinking and even fashionable by communities across the country. These days you can buy hormone-free pork by hanging weight on Craigâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s List and New York City apartment-dwellers are converting spare bedrooms into vegetable gardens. Whether to lose weight, increase energy, avoid cancer, save money, protest worker exploitation, or simply chase a fad, the reality is clear: people are attempting to regain the wholesomeness that used to characterize the human diet. We are discovering that truly good food, in every sense of the word, does exist and lies within our reach. We are learning that what we put into our bodies, our very life source, is perhaps one of those essentials that should not have been comprised and ultimately, sacrificed to progress. So, what of the life source for our souls? What if there were such a thing as original, unaltered truth about God, the Church and the salvation of the world? Orthodoxy is simply a word that describes this truth as the Christian faith that has been handed down to us by the spiritual fathers and mothers of the Church since Christ walked the earth. Orthodoxy is a path that if we follow, we can Saint Patrick Continued on Page 48

and will gain knowledge of the unadulterated truth, love and power of God in our lives. As Orthodox Christians, we believe that God’s desire and power to make Himself known is bigger than our sin. He would not set us up to fail. As the Author of all truth, He has made a vehicle by which we can know Him and truly satisfy the hunger in our soul that we may live. This vehicle is His Church. Orthodoxy has taught since its earliest days that the Church is a hospital. St. John Chrysostom wrote in the fourth century, “For indeed the school of the Church is an admirable surgery — a surgery, not for bodies, but for souls. For it is spiritual, and sets right, not fleshly wounds, but errors of the mind... This medicine is compounded, not from the herbs growing on the earth, but from the words proceeding from heaven — this…tongues of preachers have dispensed.” Many modern Christians may see this imagery as a way for the Church to excuse our sinfulness or relieve ourselves of responsibility for the pain that we cause ourselves and others. It is quite the opposite. Like the recent burst of interest in natural foods, there is a similar spiritual hunger spreading across the country, a hunger for truth, no matter how demanding or convicting.
understanding transforms the way that we live and the way we relate to God and others. We are not constantly struggling to bring our “account” with God back into the black. However, we believe that God expects us to make actual progress in our salvation, which changes our attitude and worldview from that Orthodox Christians believe that salvation is a process of a minimalist or as the Apostle Paul terms, a “slave” (what is comprised of purification, sanctification and theosis (union the least I can do and still go to heaven) to that of a son (what with God)—in that order. We see sin as an illness that more can I do to express my love and devotion). Orthodoxy needs healing, more than a debt that must be paid. This 48

the Charismatic Episcopal Church (CEC). Their search, as well as a long history of interest in the Antiochian Orthodox Church, led them to visit the clergy conference at the Antiochian Village in the summer of 2006. Bishop Thomas, who oversees the Mid-Atlantic region of the Antiochian Orthodox Church, began to explore with them the possibility of beginning an Orthodox mission and visited them in the fall. Fr. Nicholas Alford of St. Gregory the Great Orthodox Church in Washington, DC agreed to hold catechism classes for the group. The congregation began worshipping in a borrowed sanctuary with the kind agreement and generosity of Christ Church in Warrenton. We are now enjoying a beautiful space behind Fox Den Antiques.

It was these ancient, yet revolutionary truths that resonated with the small group of Christians who converted to Orthodoxy in 2007 and formed the mission that became St. Patrick’s Orthodox Church here in Warrenton. The new mission was made up of former laity and several clergy from July 2011
St. Patrick’s is a part of the Western Rite Vicariate of the Antiochian Orthodox Church. Antioch is one of the earliest centers of Christianity after Jerusalem. This is the city where the Apostles Paul and Barnabas were sent out on their missionary journeys, and according to Acts 11:26, Antioch is where the disciples were first called Christians. The Church of Antioch remains till this day with an unbroken line of apostolic Christianity; this is the church into which St. Patrick’s was graciously received. The Orthodox Church has approved the restoration of the ancient liturgies that Saint Patrick Continued on Page 50
Saint Patrick Continued from Page 48
originated in the West, and these form the basis of Western Rite worship. The Western Rite provides a home for those who desire to worship in a culturally familiar tradition without compromising the universal truth of the Orthodox faith. The Western Rite has grown by four new missions this past year and the mission in Warrenton is the first of several CEC congregations coming into the Church. As far as we know this is the first Orthodox Church in Warrenton, one of the fastest growing cities in Virginia. St. Patrick’s Orthodox Church is strongly committed to being a vibrant witness of the Orthodox faith to their community. The congregation is made up of seniors, young singles and couples, families and many children. In Orthodoxy, the path of salvation is clear: we confess our sins regularly, we partake in our Lord’s Body, we read (and sing) the Scriptures, we feed and clothe the poor, we fast, and we pray that we may be continually more filled with love for God and man. The men and women hold separate group meetings to read and discuss books on different aspects of our faith. We have a dynamic youth group that engages the community with frequent events, such as food drives for the local poor, fundraisers for overseas orphanages, theatrical productions, Bible Bowls, talent shows and workshops on topics like purity and spiritual discipline. On any given Sunday morning, you will first hear the service through the walls of the antique mall—voices, from the very young to the very old, raised to form the melodious strains of a Gregorian chant or western hymn. Mothers ensure that even the infants are present for the reading of the Gospel as the incense wafts up into the rafters. Fr. Patrick offers a homily,
then all join in the confession of faith and prayers to prepare for the Holy Sacrament. All present can feel the power and grace of God in the dynamism of the same liturgy—Scripture, prayers, confession of faith, Eucharist—that has been followed since the days of Christ’s Apostles. It is the same as it has always been. A common mantra among today’s champions of farmer’s markets, organic food brands, and home herb gardens is, “Stop eating dead food!” The existing definitions vary, but “dead food” generally refers to food that is processed, stripped of nutrients, then packed with hormones, additives, and preservatives. It is food that has been manipulated to simultaneously meet the ever escalating demands of our schedules, our cravings, and our wallets. Live foods are just that--when we consume them, we are actually absorbing living cells into our bodies, which then transfer still active nutrients into our blood stream. It takes a good amount of work for the microwave generation to purchase and prepare live foods, yet people are going to great lengths to make the change. The notion is considered profound and revolutionary, yet eating living foods was what we did in the beginning—it is what comes naturally to us. It is not coincidental that Orthodoxy has been described as “organic.” It is quite true that many things within orthodoxy may not be neatly packaged, attractively presented or userfriendly. However, that is to be expected in a living organism--Orthodoxy is the way of the Church of Christ. It is not easy, but it is pure, authentic, dynamic and alive.
This is our Orthodox life. If your soul hungers for a sustaining, unchanged, yet living truth---please come see us, there is plenty for everyone. For more information, contact Fr. Patrick Cardine at (703) 819-0093 or visit our web site at www.stpatrickorthodox.org. Service times: Saturday Vespers at 6:30 p.m. and Sunday services begin at 9:00 a.m. 50
— A Story of Ambition and Recovery —
Dr. Jakum. Patient Jakum. Coach Jakum. When Dr. Josh Jakum tore his ACL during a soccer game, his first thought was, “How am I going to coach my sons’ lacrosse team?” With only a few short months until the season, he set out to find the best orthopedic care. So, he teamed up with orthopedic surgeon Dr. Robert Smith, who previously served with the Baltimore Ravens. The two agreed to a bone-tendon-bone graft surgery. And then came the rehab. Three days a week Dr. Jakum worked to regain his strength and mobility. But on March 12th, he didn’t show up for his therapy. Because he was on the field, putting the Talons lacrosse team through their very first drills. Orthopedics For more information on our Orthopedic services visit www.fauquierhealth.org.

The “E” in Eating is for ENJOYMENT!
Do you think of eating in a positive manner and simply enjoy the food you are having? Or are you more likely to focus on what you should not or cannot have based on the desire to drop a few pounds? Considering the focus on obesity and related diseases and the fix-it-all fad diets that offer quick results but often leave us feeling deprived and frustrated, it’s easy to understand why we approach healthy eating with some negativity—and perhaps even confusion and fear—instead of with a positive attitude. Time to start appreciating your body for all the good it does, and fueling it to say thank you! Summer brings us in-season fresh vegetables and fruits, the opportunity to cook outside on the grill and prepare make-ahead cold salads. All of these cooking methods and food options can be easy, delicious and nutritious! Instead of focusing on the negative aspect of can’t, focus on the positive aspect of yes I can…and enjoy!
The following are some recipes for you to put into your summer mix: Fruity Oatmeal Enjoy this whole-grain, fresh fruit breakfast, prepared in less than 15 minutes! Makes three servings – Each Serving 241 calories/8 grams protein/39 grams carbohydrate/6 grams fat/2 grams fiber. 2 cups water ¼ tsp salt 1 cup regular rolled oats 1 cup coarsely chopped fresh peaches (or apple if preferred) ¼ cup raisins 1/8 tsp. cinnamon 1/3 cup chopped raw almonds 2 tsp. brown sugar ½ cup skim milk In a saucepan, bring the water, oats and salt to boiling. Stir in peaches, raisins, cinnamon and nuts. Reduce heat and simmer five minutes, stirring occasionally. Cover and let stand for two minutes and serve. (Add more water if you like a thinner consistency.)
Garbanzo Bean and Vegetable Salad Garbanzo beans, also known as chickpeas, have a mild and nutty flavor. Beans are filling and contain a significant amount of protein and fiber. This is a great salad to tote for lunch, so long as you keep it cold. Makes three servings – each serving 245 calories/18 grams protein/8 grams fiber/25 grams carbohydrate/8 grams fat. 2 tbs. lemon juice Dash of Tabasco 1 tbs balsamic vinegar 1 garlic clove, crushed 1 tsp basil (1 tbs if fresh) 1/8 tsp pepper 1 – 15oz can garbanzo beans rinsed and drained 1 ½ cups chopped broccoli 1 7 oz can diced tomatoes, un-drained ¾ cup cubed part skim mozzarella cheese ½ cup sliced carrots In a large mixing bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Stir in remaining ingredients. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
One final thought: always start your day with breakfast and continue to fuel your body throughout the day. Very simply put, your brain and body require nutrients throughout the day for optimal function and performance.
Cold Chicken (or Shrimp) Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette Makes three four-cup servings. Each serving 350 calories/33 grams protein/10 grams fat/32 grams carbohydrate/4 grams fiber 3 tbs white wine vinegar or white cider vinegar 1 garlic clove minced 1 tsp. sugar 1 tsp. grated orange peel 2 tbs. olive oil 2 medium oranges, peeled 1 lb. cooked chicken or shrimp cut up 1 tbs. chopped pimiento 10 cups torn bibb, boston, spinach leaf lettuce mix ¼ cup sliced green onion In a large bowl, combine the first four ingredients, whisk in oil and set aside the vinaigrette mixture. Cut the oranges in ½ inch slices, and quarter each slice. Add the chicken or shrimp, pimientos and oranges to the vinaigrette and toss to coat. Cover and chill for at least one hour. Just before serving, toss mixture with lettuce and onions.
By satisfying your hunger with healthy daytime meals, you will not only perform better throughout the day at work and at play, but you also will ruin the appetite for the evening “junk food” binge that contributes to fat gain. Bon Appétit!

Summer is finally here and things are getting busy, so much to do in so little time. Our minds are filled with plans for vacations, family reunions, yard projects and maybe just an evening walk with the family tonight. Many of our local businesses have been busy too. We have many new businesses that have opened and a few businesses on the move. Check them out; it will save you time and gas. We have three new businesses in old town Warrenton and one more on the bypass, the Old Town Café has opened on Main Street with coffee and a deli too. The Law Office of Marie Washington, PLC has opened and is ready to help with your legal needs. And lastly, BlueLine Motors has opened on 5th Street. The owner Robert Welch is ready to make sure that you have the ultimate car buying experience. He will find just the used vehicle you want, saving you the time and hassle. On the bypass, Ace Motors has opened a used car lot near the bowling alley and has stocked in a great number of used cars for you to choose from. There is one long time business that has closed and I am sure holds many memories for many residents. Ben & Mary’s Steakhouse on Route 17 has closed the doors for good. We are sad to see it go. We also lost the real estate office of Century 21 New Millennium, they didn’t close, but they did move out of the county. Tintworx has moved from the New Baltimore area to Garrett Street near old town and they are ready to tint your home or car windows this summer. Warrenton Custom Cabinets has also moved closer in by taking over the old 7-Eleven building near the Comfort Inn. There are some beautiful cabinets on display. And although they have not moved yet, Horizon Real Estate plans to move to N Fifth Street in September.

Trusted Auto Care, a division of Country Chevrolet, has taken up residence next to the Wendy’s, where Speedy’s Automotive was. If you remember a few years back, their building next to the Highline car lot burned down and was not rebuilt, at which time they moved back to the Country Chevrolet facility. By now, Chipotle should be open, at least that was the plan, but we know that not everything gets to open on schedule. And Wa Wa has begun work on the old Joe Jacoby lot for their new station. So far they have removed the old building and pavement, so we should start to see something going up soon. They hope to be open in October or November. Have a great summer.
