From The Publisher

We Celebrate the Birth of Our Spirit Our Nation’s birthday is celebrated this month on the anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. There is no date more revered in our history than the Fourth of July. Drafted by Thomas Jefferson between June 11 and June 28, 1776, the Declaration of Independence is at once the nation’s most cherished symbol of liberty and Jefferson’s most enduring monument. Here, in exalted and unforgettable phrases, Jefferson expressed the convictions in the minds and hearts of the American people. Jefferson’s writing of the first part of the Declaration of Independence was strongly influenced by the Virginia Declaration of Rights which was later used as the foundation for The Bill of Rights. The political philosophy of the Declaration was not new; its ideals of individual liberty had already been expressed by John Locke and the Continental philosophers. What Jefferson did was to summarize this philosophy in “self-evident truths” and set forth a list of grievances against the King in order to justify to the world the breaking of ties between the colonies and the mother country. On Abraham Lincoln’s inaugural journey to Washington, he stopped in Philadelphia at the site where the Declaration of Independence had been signed. In his speech at Independence Hall, Lincoln discusses how the Declaration of Independence incorporates his egalitarian ideals:

“…I have never had a feeling politically that did not spring from the sentiments embodied in the Declaration of Independence. I have often pondered over the dangers which were incurred by the men who assembled here, and framed and adopted that Declaration of Independence…which gave liberty, not alone to the people of this country, but, I hope, to the world, for all future time….” So strong were Lincoln’s feelings for the Declaration of Independence that he once called it the father of all moral principle in men. The Constitution of the United States may be our law, but the Declaration of Independence is truly our heart and soul. During the month I plan to enjoy a few baseball games, take a vacation with my wife and all four of my children, barbeque with friends and celebrate our Nation’s 236th birthday.

How about you?

If there is a fund raising project going on in Fauquier County, in all likelihood, Charlie Ebbets is involved in it. Though born in Brooklyn, Ebbets emigrated to Fauquier County when he was a year old. That was 69 years ago, and he’s been here ever since. Interviewed in May, Ebbets quickly summed up his life in the county. “I went to school in Marshall all 12 years, grade school through senior year,” Ebbets said. “I went to the University of Virginia extension down at Falls Church for two years, got married, had three children and went into the automobile business. I ended up with my own place in Marshall for about 13 years, then got out of that and went into real estate full time. I’ve had my real estate license since 1971 and used it on and off when I was in the car business. I went into real estate full time in 1988.” The Agent Ebbets said that he really likes working in real estate. “The people I meet are the best part of being in the real estate business,” he related. “You go out to a $200,000 townhouse one day and a $5 million farm the next, so it’s something different every day.”

Because of his long involvement in the community, Ebbets has been approached to assist in some different real estate projects. “I helped plan a subdivision called Carriage Chase up near the hospital,” he said. “Some retired military people come to me 10 years ago or so, and they had some very specific things that they wanted in a small subdivision: all-brick homes with 9 foot ceilings, nice sized rooms, real wood floors, two-car garages, wood-burning fireplaces, and a small yard so that they could have a little flower garden if they wanted. Out front, they wanted a coach lamp so that if there were any kind of a medical problem, they could call 911 and push a button, and the lamp would pulsate so when the ambulance came up, they would know which house needs assistance. So I got together with a local builder, and they built 37 houses, which sold out rather quickly.” That project went so well that Ebbets said he’s thinking of doing something similar. “I’ve got some engineers and investors lined up to try to do this again and build 30 or so homes.” Considering the state of real estate in the country, Ebbets said that things look bright in this area. “I think this recession is getting over,” he said. “It’s already over in Fairfax County, and it’s moving this way - houses in Fairfax are getting multiple offers.” “The market is coming back, and there are new subdivisions that have been approved,” he continued, “so I expect that in the next three years, there are going to be 300 or 400 new homes built and sold in Fauquier County.” So business is stimulating and satisfying for the avid golfer. “Yes, my life is good … if I could just get a hole-in-one,” he said with a laugh. Yet one’s business or professional life is but scratching the surface of a person’s life, and it is that way with Charlie Ebbets. Let’s look deeper. The Fund Raiser Ebbets has been involved in charitable organizations in Fauquier County for decades. charlie continued on page 10

“I went to work for Tom Frost when I was 22, and I was involved with Jaycees, and Tom Frost said, ‘Well, we need money for the hospital, and I’m going to make you a captain of your group. You get some of these young people together, and you make some phone calls.’ He was sort of joking, but he said, ‘You need to call some of these people with a lot of money. Call Mr. Russell Arundel and talk to him and see how much he will give you.’ He had talked to Mr. Arundel and said that I might be calling him, but I didn’t know it. So I called him and said, ‘Mr. Arundel, this is Charles Ebbets. I’ve never met you before, but …’ And he broke in and said, ‘I’ll give you a thousand dollars, and don’t bother me anymore,’ and he laughed. I went in to see Tom Frost, and said, ‘Mr. Arundel said he’d give me a thousand dollars. Do you think he was joking?’ He said, ‘No, he wasn’t joking.’ ‘How do I get it?’ He said, ‘He’ll send it in, you don’t have to call him back or anything.’ And I thought, ‘This is pretty cool.’” Ebbets followed that effort up with numerous other fund raising drives. He recounted a few that he could remember off the top of his head. “Let’s see,” he said, “in 1988 or ‘89, I went to a meeting to form a steering committee to see if we could get a community college in Warrenton. I was selected as the ‘Ways and Means’ person. I was told we needed to raise at least $160,000 before the state would even consider this, so I went to all the local organizations’ meetings, board of supervisors, and to some citizens with deep pockets, trying to raise funds. Folks were very generous and most felt as I did, that this would be a wonderful opportunity for this area. We raised over $165,000. Obviously, I did not do this by myself. I had lots of help, but I was very proud to be involved.” What appears difficult to many others seems natural for Ebbets. “I love fund raising,” he said, “and it’s kind of easy. There was a child of one of our employees … three or four years old … who was very ill, and insurance wasn’t paying for everything, so they were saying we need to have an office bake sale here or something, and I said, ‘Let’s do this: let’s offer somebody a trip for four to Pinehurst, North Carolina to play golf.’ I called Andy Budd, who has a plane, and he said that he would give us the plane. Andy is the most generous guy I’ve come across. I had to pay for the pilots and the gas. I called Pinehurst and set it up, and the foursome was picked up at the airport, they played 18 holes, had lunch and dinner, and then breakfast the next morning, played 18 more holes, had lunch, got on the plane and come back. The chances were $100 apiece, and we only sold 100, so the odds were pretty good that you could win. Dr. William Allison won it, and he and his wife and another couple went. The trip cost us $4,000, and we raised $6,000 for this family, and it was really simple.” Another time Ebbets and others decided to raise some money for the free clinics in the area. They put together a trip to New York City, first class on the Acela train, with a room for two nights at the Waldorf Astoria, tickets to a play, and $200 spending money for each of four people. “I think we sold 200 tickets at $100 apiece, and I believe that we gave each free clinic in the area something like $2,000,” he said, “and that was fun. The woman that won it took four of her friends, and she said that they had the greatest time. The play was good,

and they had dinner out, and they loved the Acela.” Ebbets said that he has organized numerous golf tournaments for different causes, but one in particular that came to mind didn’t raise money. It raised spirits. “I was watching TV one night, and it showed some of the wounded warriors from the Bethesda Naval Hospital or Walter Reed Hospital playing golf, and they really were enjoying it, so I got some people together from the Fauquier Springs Club, and we had the wounded warriors come out for their first golf outing with us. We had the Fairfax County motorcycle policemen – about 18 – go over to Bethesda to meet the bus, and they brought them through DC and brought them to Fauquier County, through Main Street in Warrenton and out to the Springs Club. We let them play golf, and former soldiers who were members of the club played with them, and we gave them prizes ... money, food and gift certificates, hats and shirts. We had that for two years, and it was very successful. “We couldn’t do that this year,” he continued, “so we decided to do a tournament for the Outdoor Heritage Foundation. They raise money and take wounded warriors out fishing and hunting. It’s a great organization. They’ve done some wonderful things for these guys. Last year we raised $28,000. I think this year we raised $20,000.” Not content to sit on his laurels, Ebbets looks forward to the next opportunity to do something worthwhile in the community. “It’s got to be something different,” he said. “When I’m called on to raise money the next time, I’m going to do something different. It is a lot of fun, and there are a lot of great causes out there. Anybody who reads this article, if someone really needs money for some really good cause, they can always contact me, and I’ll try to find a way to help them out, because it’s very rewarding. I can’t do miracles, but I’m not afraid to call people.”

Thirst For Knowledge

Library summer events are free, fun and 'educational' Most children aren’t really keen on activities their parents deem “educational,” especially during their summer vacations. But Fauquier County Public Library is presenting more than eight weeks of free events and special activities for youth this year: Dream Big: Read for children and Own the Night for students entering sixth grade or higher.

by Saturday, Aug. 11. The library’s goal is for participants to collectively read 30,000 books before the programs end.

A bonus for parents is that numerous studies have found that students who take part in their local library’s summer reading programs significantly improve their reading skills. Don’t tell the kids that though, the programs are so much fun they may not even notice they are reading and learning. And this year, just for fun, the library is offering a summer reading program for adults.

Dream Big: Read features weekly story times and programs for babies and children through fifth grade, special family events, and games and activities that are fun and encourage reading. Children earn a spin of the prize wheel once each week after logging the number of books read since their last log-in.

Registration for the children and teen programs begin online Sunday, June 3, at http://library.fauquiercounty.gov and Monday, June 4, at all of the county’s public libraries. Weekly programs and special events — many of which the whole family will enjoy — begin June 16 and continue through Aug. 11. Participants in the children’s and teen programs set their own personal reading goals when they register based on the types of books they like to read and how many books they plan to complete and log

Recommended reading suggestions are available on the library’s website, and print versions of the book lists may be picked up at any Fauquier library beginning June 4.

Special Dream Big events include an appearance of nocturnal animals from the amazing artist/comedian Paul Merklein, a stuffed animal fashion show, a finale concert with Brooksie Wells and much more.

glow-in-the-dark jewelry making, a movie night, a swap shop and pizza taste off, and a star gazing party. Lots of good reads will keep everyone sharp during the dog days of summer. Teens may earn small prizes throughout the summer by reading, but may win bigger prizes by writing book reviews and entering them in weekly drawings. All children’s and teens’ events are free courtesy of the Friends of the Fauquier Library. Other sponsors supporting the programs include: Chick-fil-A, Dairy Queen, Earth, Glaze and Fire, Effie’s Frozen Treats, Five Guys, Latitudes, and Rollerworks Family Skating Center.

The popular Tween Scene, for students who are not quite old enough for the teen programs, features activities designed for rising 4th and 5th graders, including art projects, science experiments, and games.

The theme of the adult summer reading program, June 1 through August 31, is Beach Read Bingo sponsored by Friends of the Fauquier Library. Adults may pick up “bingo” cards with squares representing various genres, such as romance, history, mysteries, etc. Once they have read books in at least five of the categories they may return the cards to be entered in a prize drawing.

Own the Night, the library’s summer reading program for students entering sixth grade or higher, features a self-defense/ personal safety class with a martial arts instructor, T-shirt art, a Wii game day,

Programs are offered at: Bealeton Library, 10877 Willow Drive North; John Marshall Library, 4133 Rectortown Road, Marshall; and Warrenton Library, 11 Winchester St. Call (540) 422-8500 for more information.

[Note: Numerous studies have found that students who take part in their local library’s summer reading programs significantly improve their reading skills. One study, done by Dominican University’s Graduate School of Library and Information Studies, found that kids who participated in summer reading programs tested 52 Lexile points ahead of their peers who did not participate. A Lexile is a unit of measurement used when determining the difficulty of text and the reading level of readers. The study also concluded summer reading programs are also an antidote for learning loss. So instead of losing knowledge and skills during the summer months, kids who attend reading programs actually show gains.]

Warrenton Baptist Church Bell Rings


Above Main Street by John T. Toler

Although the Warrenton Baptist Church dates back to its formal organization on Aug. 24, 1849, the bell tower and tall steeple were not completed until1870, on the second church built on the site. The first building was a 30-foot by 50foot brick structure with the pulpit in the northeast end and galleries on three sides was completed later that year. It was the first church in Warrenton where whites and African Americans, both free and enslaved, worshipped together. This building served until 1860, when it was determined to be too small for the growing congregation, and in need of

major repairs. In order to build a new, larger church, the deacons appropriated $10,000, and the pastor, Rev. W. D. Thomas, collected an additional $4,000 in subscriptions from contributors outside of Warrenton. The old church was demolished, and the congregation held services in the Methodist church at the corner of Lee and Culpeper streets. By early 1861, the basement of the new church had been completed and enclosed so that it could be used until construction on the upper floors could be started.

Warrenton Baptist Church, as it looked about 1870, after John R. Spilman completed the steeple and bell tower. Note small house next to the church, and present-day Oddfellows building in background. Courtesy Warrenton Baptist Church.

Unfortunately, the Civil War broke out, and in December 1861, the congregation contracted with the Confederate Army to use the partially finished building as a hospital. When Union forces occupied Warrenton beginning in the spring of 1862, they too used the church as a hospital, but without any agreements. Sadly, the wooden seats were broken up and used for splints for the injured, or coffins for the dead, and the rest of the building damaged. Throughout the war years, church meetings were rare, and the congregation was scattered. By February 1863, Rev. Thomas resigned and moved to a church in South Carolina, leaving the church without a pastor until after the war was over. Rev. Henry H. Wyer assumed the duties of pastor on Jan. 1, 1867, and in addition to restoring the church membership through revivals and other means, began the task of completing the ravage building. A Philadelphia architect named Sloan was hired to design the building, and John R. Spilman, a Warrenton contractor and church member, executed the plans. Work was started, and as noted in the minutes of a May 5, 1868 meeting, “For nearly two years we have been struggling against many difficulties to complete the upper room.�

bell tower continued from page 14

The original two-story brick structure had the Sunday school on the lower floor, and the sanctuary was on the main floor, with a gallery at the back.

Steeple, Bell Tower Added By 1870, Mr. Spilman completed the slender, tapering steeple and bell tower. According to Lee Moffett in The Diary of Courthouse Square, “One of Mr. Spilman’s workmen said that the steeple was too tall to work on. Spilman, it is said, climbed the steeple and stood on his head!” Inside the bell tower, with its triplearched louvers, is the church bell. Marked “Mehenney Foundry, Troy, New York, 1848” it was rung by pulling a single rope, as it is today. Since the first church didn’t have a bell tower, and the bell tower for the second church was not built until 1870, it is likely that the bell was acquired after it had been used elsewhere for the preceding 22 years. The church roof and steeple were badly damaged by a tornado in 1880, and again by a storm in 1890. While repairs were being made, the congregation held services in the Town Hall on Main Street.

Reaching the bell tower is not for the faint-of-heart. Initial access is gained through a trapdoor above the loft, reached by an extension ladder, placed at full length on the slanted floor. Once in the area behind the front gable, another ladder leads to the trap door to the bell tower. There, one finds the bell, and can look through the louvers to the street, far below. Yet another ladder provides access to the steeple; but without lighting, it is not an inviting climb. Besides, you have only come to see the bell. Others, including the pastor, Rev. Jay Lawson, can say that they have gone all of the way to the top.

After standing for more than a century, the steeple was refurbished in 1985, and lights were added around the base to illuminate the steeple at night. More recently, the steeple and bell tower were fully restored.

It was different for Stephen Bathon. The 70-year-old Warrenton resident was taking medication that was masking his hip pain, so when he stopped taking the medicine, the pain was sudden and severe. Orthopedic surgeon, “James Ramser, M.D., said he had good news and bad news for me. The bad news: I needed a new hip because the joint was in really bad shape. The good news: he could fix it,” said Bathon. He went to Dr. Ramser because he regularly performs minimally invasive anterior approach surgery, which results in a shorter recovery time than traditional hip replacement. “I like Dr. Ramser,” he said. “He was very personable and informative. He took the time to explain everything and answer my questions.” Bathon had surgery on December 21, 2011, and left the hospital the very next day. “I felt fine,” he remembers. “I came home with a bottle of pain pills but never used them.” He used a cane for about a week; after a month of physical therapy, he had erased any trace of a limp.

He attributes his fast recovery to being healthy and strong going into the operation and being serious about his recovery. “I had been doing a lot of walking and have always been very active. After the surgery, it took me two months to be able to walk two miles, but I worked at it. I did a lot of therapy on my own. I wanted to get rid of that limp,” said Bathon. Bathon had lots of incentive to make a fast recovery. He’s on his third career in the insurance field and spends time outside working on his backyard garden. He is also an avid outdoorsman. “It’s tough to go flyfishing with a bad hip,” he said. “You are too unstable. It’s too hard to negotiate in waders in rapid waters with uneven, slippery rocks underfoot.” Bathon wasn’t sidelined for long, however. He was fly-fishing again in January and hunting in Argentina in June.

Anterior Approach Surgery

Benefits include: • Possible accelerated recovery time procedure, which avoids cutting key muscles and tissues. The surgeon instead moves between the muscles and tissues without detaching them, sparing the tissues from trauma. • Potential for fewer restrictions during recovery. The procedure seeks to help patients bend their hips more freely and bear their weight immediately, or soon after surgery. • Possibility for less scarring because the technique requires only one small incision. • Potential for stability of the implant sooner after the surgery, because key muscles and tissue are not disturbed during the operation. Dr. Ramser said, “I love using this procedure because my patients can recover as quickly as possible and get back to being active.”

Dr. Ramser describes the anterior approach for total hip replacement as an alternative that provides the potential for less pain, faster recovery and improved mobility, because the muscle tissues are spared during surgery.

What Is Anterior Approach Surgery? Some hip replacement patients may be candidates for a minimally invasive surgery called total hip arthroplasty with the anterior approach, also known as the anterior hip replacement. In a traditional hip replacement, the surgeon makes a 6- to 8-inch incision over the side of the hip and replaces the worn joint with a new, artificial one. With an anterior hip replacement, the surgeon replaces the hip by making a much smaller incision —about 3 to 5 inches — at the front of the hip.

Stephen Bathon was able to make a speedy recovery after his hip replacement surgery because of a new technique that is less invasive.

love - thirty Chestnut Forks County Tennis Tournament

July is an exiting time of year; it brings with it celebrations of freedom, fireworks, barbeques, family vacations and the annual Chestnut Forks County Tennis Tournament. Family founded, owned and operated by the Maloney’s since 1975, Chestnut Forks Athletic Club (CFAC) has provided tennis enthusiasts and fitness devotees a facility to improve their techniques and physical condition while developing lasting friendships. The tournament organized by CFAC has been running for 30 plus years, showcasing the county and regions talented top athletes to noble beginners. Each year the club receives approximately 150 entries into the tournament, which includes participation in men’s or women’s, singles, doubles and mixed doubles brackets. Some players choose to enter more than one division to maximize their time on the court. The tournament is separated into three competitive levels: A, B and C. 20

The most vigorous division is A with high school, college and experienced athletes competing. “You can come out and watch the A-level players play and pick something up,” Derek Maloney, CFAC Club Manager said. “You might get inspired to get better.” The B division is a mix full of players at an intermediate level; this is a great choice for players looking for a challenge or just for fun. And the C division is perfect for new tennis students. “Someone who has never played tennis but wants to get out and hack it out can sign up for the C’s to see what they can do,” Maloney said. “It’s one of the best things about the tournament.”

The tournament is open to everyone not just club members, which is a common misconception. “It’s nice for adults because it’s open for anyone on any level and it’s a fun thing,” Tray Allen a long time CFAC member and tournament sponsor commented. “Some tournaments can be intimidating but having it open provides the opportunity for even novice players to participate.” While the tournament has always been a place for players to come and experience friendly competition, great importance was placed on the community and family. “The purpose of the tournament has always been family,” Maloney stated. Each year charities are selected to become recipients of the funds raised by the tournament. “Everything goes to local charities here in the county,” Allen explained. “The Boys and Girls Club will be supported this year and the Fauquier High School Tennis Program.” Previous beneficiaries have been the Fauquier Homeless Shelter, Hospice, Fauquier Free Clinic, the SPCA and many more from the past three decades. 22

“The more people that participate the more money we can give to local charities,” Allen said. “And I’ll buy as many burgers as I have to in order to feed them, because that’s what we want,” Allen chuckled. As a family facility it was important to establish an environment that was open to family members of all ages. All of the matches are held at CFAC where there is an abundance of seating to enjoy and cheer on participating players. “That’s the major family part, all of the members even if they didn’t play or play that day come with their families to hang out and watch,” Allen described. love continued on page 24

A collection of memories from previous tournaments.

Many times snacks and drinks are enjoyed among rival spectators. “It’s funny because you’ll see at the finals matches families are there supporting their players,” Maloney said. “You’ve got a family over here and a family over there and for about an hour and a half you have this competitive feeling but afterwards everyone hangs out and shares food.” Current high school and college athletes as well as alumni can be seen competing. It’s a great opportunity for younger children to witness great skills from locally grown players. Some even started competing in the C division and worked their way up. “It’s been fun watching the kids grow through the tournament,” Allen recalls. “Watching them compete in different levels as they develop.”

“It’s a good balance,” Allen explained. “We have unbelievable levels of tennis that people can watch but they can also play if they want.” Sociable and supportive this tournament is concluded with a picnic celebration during the weekend of the men and women’s singles finals. Allen Real Estate has sponsored the tournament picnic for years providing hamburgers, hot dogs and refreshments for all celebrating the tournament winners. They’ve been fortunate to only be rained out a handful of times in over thirty years, but even with rain their hospitality and sportsmanship continues. “It’s been mentioned to me that this tournament is the players favorite in the area,” Maloney explained. “The atmosphere is great, everyone has a good time and everyone comes out and watches on that last day – you don’t get that at a lot of tournaments.”

In addition, they’ve had previously ranked adult players come and compete too. Chestnut Forks Athletic Club is located at 6379 Airlie Road in Warrenton. They are open seven days a week Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 5am to 9pm, Tuesday and Thursday from 5:30am to 10pm, Saturday from 8am to 6pm and Sunday 9am to 6pm. If you are interested in competing in the tournament this year please sign up before July 25 or if you want to sign up for lessons to prepare for next year give them a call at (540) 347-0823.

Life & Living It

freedom & independence Dr. Robert B. Iadeluca

This morning, as per usual, I read the daily newspaper, took a walk outside, and watched my neighbor’s children go to summer school. All common occurrences, of course, except for the fact that in many nations around the world they are far from common and, in some cases, dangerous. Each day I took these behaviors for granted, temporarily forgetting that the publishing and reading of my paper was protected by the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States. It slipped my mind that at this very moment, in various countries, to step outside is to risk being shot. I didn’t pause to think that education is a luxury at various points of the globe, especially for women. How blessed I am that 236 years ago and 136 miles from here in the home of the Liberty Bell, 56 men were looking out for my welfare. freedom continued on page 28

freedom continued from page 26

small word, and one with a profound meaning that had been thoroughly understood by our founding fathers.

I remember, as a child, raising my small American flag on my 10 foot flagpole on Memorial Day, dutifully raising it to the top and then lowering it to half-mast until noon. At a later age, marching in the parade as a member of the school band and, as a member of the Sons of the American Legion, and playing Taps at the cemetery.

We were back home after fighting to preserve the freedom of others around the world but now, whether we wanted to face it or not, we had our own moral battles to face. Even before leaving for foreign shores, I had seen our own national dilemma, watching northern black soldiers on weekend pass in Columbia, South Carolina refusing to get on board segregated buses to return to Ft. Jackson. Blood flowed in the streets as Northern black enlisted men fought Southern white officers.

As a Boy Scout, I promised to “Do My Duty to God and My Country” and learned such things as the proper folding of the flag. All these behaviors, however, only gave me a taste of the meaning of freedom. Life – the harshest but the most efficient teacher – soon took over in 1942 as I enlisted in the U.S. Army. Life placed me in close contact with American soldiers who had strange foreign last names and who shared tales of how their parents or grandparents endured great hardships to escape to our land. Life took me to a destroyed Europe of that time where I saw thousands and thousands of displaced people carrying their meager possessions on their backs, moving away from the front lines toward an unknown destination. I had my first experience of radio “jamming” by the enemy, which prevented us from hearing the latest news. Life gave me the unpleasant experience of passing buildings, from which came that unmistakable sweetish smell of death. It became obvious that exterminations took place in many small buildings as well as at the large notorious camps such as Auschwitz with its infamous sign in front saying “Arbeit Macht Frei” (Work Makes Us Free), giving the Jews who entered the impression they were entering the camp to work.

In Europe, I saw no black soldiers at the front lines. They were assigned to service units – operating shower units, driving trucks, etc. After the war, I remember watching President Truman as he rode down Madison Avenue in New York City, campaigning for his first full term. He won and shortly thereafter in 1948 by executive order he ordered the integration of the armed forces. Equality did not come into existence solely by an order. The Montgomery, Alabama bus boycott in 1955, the Greensboro, North Carolina sit-ins in 1960, the Selma marches again in Alabama in 1965 and other nonviolent resistance known as civil disobedience produced crisis situations that brought the attention of the American public to the fact that the various races were not equally free.

The technological advances that enabled us to help win the war became the scientific changes (especially in the form of communication) that brought the continents together. What we now call social media moved America forward rapidly but almost imperceptibly into a global society. As we cast an eye worldwide we are finding that Then, on my trip home, life took Dr. Iadeluca at age 25 in Paris after the war. the desire for freedom is rising me past that Statue of Liberty, throughout the mid-East and subthat I had climbed on more than Sahara Africa.

This month we celebrate the signing of our Declaration of Independence. The juxtaposition of the terms “free” and “independent” occurs twice in the Declaration. To further dot the “i’s” and cross the “t’s,” our founders approved in 1791 what is known as the Bill of Rights, with the very first amendment to the U.S. Constitution stating that Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech or the freedom of the press.

Operations. My son, Roland, also enlisted in the army and although he did not go overseas, he served in Alaska during the Vietnam War. The 20th Century was bloody, its four major wars leading to 430,000 American military casualties, over half of which occurred during WWII. Born just two years after the end of World War I, I have lived through six wars, which have taken place in the approximate 100-year period from my birth in 1920 to today.

Can we count on there being a Stars and Stripes forever? Is it a sure thing that our great grandchildren will have a free nation? Democracy, as we know it in America, is but a brief experiment. Scientists tell us that experiments can go awry.

How peacefully we sleep. A knock on the door in the middle of the night may alert us to the possibility of an emergency but never to the thought that a family member might be taken away never to be seen again.

Nazi Germany’s blitzkrieg (lightning war) captured European nations one by one in a matter of months and established a dictatorship. Great Britain was in peril. We are no longer protected by two oceans.

Independence comes at a price. This very month on the 14th the French will be celebrating the results of their revolution which began in 1789. In their case heads rolled before they achieved their freedom.

My father was a totally disabled veteran of World War I, the war foolishly labeled the “war to end all wars.” I am a veteran of World War II having served in the European Theater of

How much is freedom worth to us? What price are we willing to pay?

Fauquier Worships

Community Christian Church by Susan Pauling

Four years ago, my husband and I moved to Warrenton with our two sons and our third son on the way. We moved to Fauquier County full of hope and expectation for the next chapter in our lives. One of the first things on our “to do” list, was to find a church family. After moving a few times before, we had become skilled at searching for and finding a good church family. For us, this process started with a simple Google search of Christian churches in the Warrenton area. Technology is a fantastic tool while looking for a church because you are able to listen to the music and preaching online, read information about the church’s beliefs and mission statement, and narrow your search to hopeful church possibilities. Through prayerful consideration, we began visiting churches in the Warrenton area. Community Christian Fellowship was the second church we visited. When we walked in the doors, we were greeted by Corlee Brown. She directed us to the appropriate classes for our children, walked us around the building, and answered many questions we had about the church. We found the congregation to be warm and friendly and the pastor extremely kind. The service was powerful and we felt God’s presence. That same afternoon we received a phone call from the pastor. He welcomed us and thanked us for coming. That was a first; we could not remember ever receiving a phone call from a church when we had visited. We attended the church a few more times before we found ourselves in an unusual situation. We learned that we were going to have our son earlier than expected. We knew we needed to make arrangements for someone to care for our boys, but our family was in Pennsylvania and we didn’t know many people in Warrenton that we trusted with our children. We certainly were not ready to have a baby early. (My doctor told me I was the first woman that ever cried in her office because I was going to have a baby early.)

This is the seventeenth 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 Community Christian Church. 32

My husband and I prayed and decided to contact Community Christian Fellowship. We asked if they could recommend a few women in the church that we could get to know just in case we needed help. By that afternoon, I received several phone calls and emails from women in the church. One woman made my family cookies and dropped them off with her name and phone number on the container. (Please note: emotional pregnant women should not be given twodozen cookies.) The pastor called to check on us and we knew we had truly found our church family. Our son did not come early, but we did have a church family who welcomed and celebrated his timely arrival. Community Christian Fellowship is a church with a passion to support and encourage families both in community christian church continued on page 34

Fauquier and Prince William counties. Our church is strategically located off of Vint Hill Road, Ÿ of a mile from Route 29. Pastor Nick Silvestro came to Community Christian Fellowship seven years ago with a heart and a vision to see lives changed through the power of God’s word, discipleship, and fellowship with other believers. This past December, Pastor Nick was installed as our lead pastor. He passionately leads our congregation though Bible based teaching and Biblical application. We live in amazing times full of opportunities, but we are also faced with daily challenges that are tearing our families apart. Long commutes, financial difficulties, and social networking are just some of the issues facing the families in our community. Community Christian Fellowship is committed to come alongside families, to support and encourage them to grow in their relationship with Christ, and to grow in their relationships with their loved ones. Our church is active with a variety of opportunities for growing in God’s word. Bible studies, for both men and women, are offered during the week. We encourage our church family to take the time to learn what the Bible says about Christian living, parenting, marriage, finances, and adult issues. Throughout the month, several small groups gather to study, fellowship, and encourage one another. The Small Group Ministry was established to bring accountability and relationships to a more personal level. Many in our congregation look to their small group for friendship and support. On Sunday mornings, every room in our church is full of people learning the Bible through different study curriculums. Community Christian Fellowship wants to strengthen our church family with information and teaching that transforms their lives and equips them to serve both within the church and in the community. Our Youth Group meets on Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings for a youth service and Bible study. Community Christian Fellowship works hard to create a fun and safe place for our young people. Through Biblical teaching and Bible studies, we believe and pray that our youth will make Godly choices for their lives. CCF has a strong desire to support parents as they help their youth navigate some of the difficult choices they face. The hearts of the youth, their families, and their lives are of the upmost priority to the staff and church family. The children of Community Christian Fellowship are one of the greatest joys in our church family. We believe it takes a community of strong families to raise community christian church continued on page 36

children in today’s culture. In a time where families are struggling, CCF desires to be a safe place for the small ones to come and worship together. We have children’s ministry for the infants up to the 5th grade. Our children sing praise songs, hear Bible stories and teaching, play games, and participate in crafts on Sunday mornings. Several times throughout the year, Kidztown offers a variety of family events, Vacation Bible School, movie nights, a Christmas party, an Easter Extravaganza, and a summer overnight camp for the older children. Pastor Nick has a vision to support missions and to participate in community outreach. Community Christian Fellowship’s desire is to shine God’s light outside our church walls. There are so many people in need, both in our country and in the nations. In 2009, our church started Community Changers, a vital ministry that has brought hope to many living in the town of Warrenton and in Fauquier County. We have partnered with contractors and skilled craftsman to help families restore their homes when they have not had the financial resources to complete necessary projects. It has been an amazing opportunity for our church to be the hands and feet of Christ in our own

community. We also support 17 missionaries working within communities across the globe. It has been an honor to hear stories of how missionaries have used our support to grow and impact the lost and the hurting. My experience at Community Christian Fellowship has been amazing. After a year of being a part of the church family, I was asked to join the staff. For 3 years I have led the Women’s Ministry and have worked alongside remarkable leaders, passionate about the things of God. Someone asked me once how I handled moving away from my friends and family to a town where I knew no one. My answer was simple, “I found a church home that I loved like family. I got involved, got my children involved, and made friendships that will last a lifetime. I found a church that supported me in difficult times, encouraged me through times of homesickness, and laughed with me when I needed to have fun. I am a better wife, mother, and friend because I am part of a healthy church that is passionate about changing lives.” Moving away from my family and friends was not easy, but making Warrenton my home has been a joy. Community Christian Fellowship has been an intricate part of connecting my family to this community and filling my home with hope for things to come.

Community Christian Fellowship is located at 6317 Vint Hill Rd, Warrenton, VA 20187. We offer Adult Life Connection Classes and Sunday school classes for children and teens from 9:30 am to 10:30 am on Sunday mornings.

Eat Less, Live More by Alice K. Maher

Remember when you were a child and you got so wrapped up in playing, imagining or creating that you didn’t want to stop when it was time to eat? Do you remember leaving your meal half-finished to run off and continue playing? Children innately understand that food is secondary to what is most nutritious and primary in life: fun and play. As adults we seem to have lost our instinct to prioritize play. In our busy world, with its emphasis on work and responsibility, to be healthy and balanced we must work on more than just our bodies: we must feed our hearts, minds and spirits. Have you noticed that when your body, mind and spirit are engaged in a creative project or happy relationship, your reliance on food seems to decrease? Likewise, when you are unsatisfied with your relationship, your job, or other areas of your life, you may depend on food to cheer, soothe or numb you. When your life is out of balance, no

amount of food can feed you where you truly need nourishment. The food that we eat is very important for health and balance, but what really feeds us - a full and fulfilling life- does not come on a plate. Try Something New this Summer “The man who does things makes mistakes, but he never makes the biggest mistake of all----doing nothing.” -Benjamin Franklin What is something you have never done before or that you have wanted to do for a long time? Choose your own adventure: organize a hiking trip, take a dance class, do some exotic travel or set a goal for a new personal change. Or try something simple, like playing flash light tag with your kids and neighbors, reading in the sunshine, star gazing, or a special outing with a furry family member! Maybe it is time to discover a new vegetable dish, or to visit a new town, restaurant or beach.

Whatever adventure calls you, use this summer to make it happen and enjoy the life you came here for. Increasing new experiences and excitement in your life can decrease your need for and dependence on artificial stimulants like caffeine and sugar, leading to more vibrant health. Watch out for massive improvements in physical wellbeing, mental acuity and motivation, plus a full portfolio of fun. What is fun for you? What excites you? Make time for it this week. Even if you don’t have much time for fun, try approaching a “serious” activity with an attitude of play. This can greatly reduce stress, fear and anxiety and bring more pleasure to your day. Take your focus off food, try adding more fun into your life and watch the magic unfold.

The Old Jail Museum Showcases Our History

Early county prison is a growing repository of artifacts, information by John T. Toler

The old County Jail on Courthouse Square in Warrenton is easily the oldest public building in Fauquier County, and likely one of the oldest existing examples of penal architecture in Virginia. Although altered over the years, the original 1808 structure and its 1823 cellblock addition served as Fauquier’s

jail until 1966, when it was replaced by a new facility on Lee Street – a remarkable 158 years. In spite of its antiquity, the Old Jail on Courthouse Square was not the first county jail. Within months after Fauquier County was broken off from Prince William and received its charter in early 1759, plans were in the works

for the necessary county courthouse and jail. By August 1759, local contractor Elias Edmonds was selected to build the first courthouse/jail complex, which was most likely located on two acres near the center of the newer section of the old jail continued on page 42

For many years, the walls of Old Jail were covered by vegetation, including several species of ivy and Virginia creeper. All of this covering, as it looked in the 1920s, was removed in 1987. 40

Warrenton Cemetery. Work was started in early 1760 on the first jail, a wooden structure measuring 12 feet square with a fireplace and chimney in the center. Cost was L73, 15 shillings. Joseph Blackwell, Fauquier’s first sheriff, was dissatisfied with the jail and protested to the Court, which was also unhappy with the courthouse. At their July 1763 session, the Court ordered a second jail to be built, which was to be completed by contractor Armistead Church by the following November; however, no records exist to prove that this jail was ever built. The third contract for a new jail was signed with William Pickett Jr. in July 1765. Costing about L51 plus several tons of tobacco, this building was located on Main Street on the site of the present-day BB&T building. Known as the “Debtors’ Prison,” it measured only ten feet square, and lacked the chimney of the earlier design. Those held in the cramped jail were permitted outside for exercise, but could not leave a designated ten-acre area within the town. After a new courthouse was built on Culpeper Street in 1764, plans were made for a larger jail on the same property. It was a more substantial structure built of logs measuring18 ft. by 16 ft., with a central chimney and fireplaces in each room. It served until 1778, when yet another jail was built by Martin Pickett on the lot at the rear of the present-day General District Courthouse.

larger jail was needed. According to the October 18, 1808 Fauquier Minute Book, “The Commissioners appointed by the Court to superintend the building of the jail reported to the court that they have received the jail in ample order and that the keys are delivered to the Court, and by the Court, to the Sheriff.” The new jail was a single-pile, two-story structure measuring 44 feet by 20 feet made of handmade brick. It had two cells on each floor, accessed by a central hallway. There were three doors on the front of the first floor, and three windows on the second floor. Prisoners were brought directly into the cells on the first floor through the doors on either side of the center door, or through the center door to the cells upstairs. This facility served until 1821, when it was determined that it was too small, and that it was necessary to provide on-site housing for the jailor. Plans were drawn up for a major expansion, and the following year, the county contracted with John Kemper to convert the 1808 jail into the jailor’s residence (adding the stone kitchen wing), and construct a new jail on the lot behind it.

Built parallel to the existing building and connected to it by an enclosed area, the new fieldstone cellblock had a foundation almost four feet thick, a slate roof, and parapet gable ends. Inside, the cells were lined with heavy timbers. A plot of land facing Hotel Street was purchased from Thaddeus Norris, owner of the old Warren Green Hotel, and an exercise yard built that was enclosed by 22-foot stone walls that are two feet thick. The work on the jail and exercise yard was completed in 1823. The exercise yard became known as the “Hanging Yard,” after a convicted murderer, a woman, was executed there in 1839. Two men, also convicted of murder, were hanged there in 1879, the year the Criminal Punishment Law was passed banning public hangings. In addition to confining convicted civilian felons, during the Civil War the jail held a variety of military prisoners from both sides, depending on who was occupying the town. Cyrus Cross was nominally the jailor during the war, but soldiers from the respective armies acted as the guards. While the Union held sway, prisoners included Frank Rockefeller of the 7th Ohio Infantry Regiment, who was

By then, the courthouse on Culpeper Street needed to be replaced, and this time, the courthouse followed the jail to its new location. Work began in April 1790 on the lot “where the main roads converged” that became known as Courthouse Square. It was finally completed in 1795.

The 1808 and 1823 Jails Population growth and activity in Fauquier Courthouse (renamed Warrenton in 1810) dictated that a 42

the brother of oil tycoon John D. Rockefeller. He was arrested in the fall of 1862 for stealing potatoes from a field near Warrenton. Capt. Thomas Hewitt, a former member of a Maine regiment who had deserted to join the Confederates, was captured by Union forces in August 1862, and confined in the jail. He was convicted, sentenced to death and executed, likely by firing squad, on Aug. 14, 1862. When the town was in Confederate hands, Union soldiers captured near Warrenton were confined in the county jail until they could be sent to prisoner-of-war camps. Those included Union Capt. Willard Glazier, who was captured in October 1863, after his horse was shot out from under him in a skirmish near Warrenton. He later complained that guards at the jail took valuables, money and even the clothes from prisoners kept in the jail. By the end of the Civil War, the jail had suffered significant damage, with cell doors and windows broken and bars removed, inviting escape. After extensive repairs and renovation, the jail would serve for another 100 years. Subsequent improvements in the years that followed included the installation 44

of three iron-and-steel “maximum security” cells located in the east end of the second floor about 1900. From 1914 to 1944, J. W. “Pete” Shirley (157-1945), who had previously served as Warrenton’s Town Sergeant, was appointed deputy sheriff and jailor. Like his predecessors, he lived with his wife and some of his family members in the 1808 building. By the 1950s, changing demographics and increased utilization by the state caused the jail to be continuously overcrowded. The Virginia Division of Corrections demanded action, and the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors responded by starting the planning for a new jail. After first considering a lot at Lee and Ashby streets, they purchased a lot ”down the hill” on Lee Street from the Warrenton Supply Co. for $8,000. From the beginning, the new jail was not the bargain the Old Jail had been. The original cost estimate was $175,000, but the final cost came to over $365,000. In addition, the new facility was plagued for months by numerous construction problems, according to an account in The Fauquier Democrat published June 20, 1963.

From Jail to Museum And then, there was the question of what to do with the Old Jail. Initially, the county considered demolishing the old buildings in favor of a parking lot, but in 1964, a group of citizens led by Gen. John B. Rose was organized to preserve the ancient prison, rallying behind the effort to “Save the Jail.” The Fauquier County Board of Supervisors took notice, and demolition was put on hold. After a series of meetings, the supervisors asked the preservationists to form an official body with which they could work to save the Old Jail, and create and operate a museum there at no cost to the county. The county would continue to hold title to the property and take care of any structural issues, and the preservation group would be responsible for maintaining the interior, raising money and seeking grants to finance the alterations, and collecting dues to maintain the museum.

On Nov. 18, 1964, the group was incorporated as the Fauquier Historical Foundation Inc., by the State Corporation Commission. Over the next six months, the members of the foundation (later called the Society) elected officers and directors, appointed an advisory group and built up membership, setting the dues at $5.50 per year. Prisoners were transferred to the new county jail on Oct. 7, 1966, and Board of Supervisors Chairman Jack McCarty presented the keys to the foundation. Work to create a museum began immediately. Committees set up to raise funds, recruit members, and gather artifacts for display in the new museum, while others addressed the obvious challenge of getting the building cleaned up and starting some of the necessary

preservation work. The late Rev. William Parkinson discovered the original random-width pine floorboards in the kitchen, lost for years under layers of plywood and linoleum. Plaster was removed from the walls, revealing the heavy wooden planks beneath; heavy beams in the ceilings, thought to have been salvaged from a ship, were also found. Former Warrenton Police Chief Gary Heath, who served as president of the Society in the 1980s, took special interest in the kitchen, cleaning off layers of soot and paint and opening the original fireplace, which had been boarded-up years ago. Inside the fireplace were the old crane and cooking tools, which were restored by the late Charles Harris. Once open as The Old Jail Museum, a staff of volunteer docents kept the facility open three days a week, April through October. But throughout the year, projects were completed to

enhance the experience of visiting the jail when it reopened, including gathering and cataloging artifacts, installing new display cases and planning events for the upcoming year. Outside, an archeological dig was started in the “Hanging Yard,� which yielded a collection of bottles, some of which were sold by the drug stores on Main Street. For many years, the walls of the jail complex were covered with vines, including Boston ivy, poison ivy and Virginia creeper. A huge clean-up project was started by the county in 1987, requiring the vines to be pulled off by hand and the stones re-set and the walls repointed with specially colored yellow mortar. Swiss stone carvers who had worked on the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. performed much of the stonework. In the 1990s, the buildings were rewired and a new central heating old jail continued on page 48

and air conditioning system – critical for preserving the artifacts stored inside – was installed in the Old Jail. Restoration work to bring the 1808 structure back to its original appearance included removal of some of the windows that were not in the original 1808 design. In 2006, the layers of white paint that covered the brick portion of the Old Jail for as long as anyone can remember were removed. The process used a citrus-based solvent that was applied to the walls and covered with strips of paper before being gently removed, taking off the paint and exposing the ancient, hand-made bricks underneath.

The Old Jail Museum Today During 1995, Fauquier Historical Society Director Maxwell Harwell, who also served as the Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, began efforts to expand the offerings of the museum and increase its impact in the community. The first step was securing the support for keeping the museum open yearround (and help to qualify the Town of Warrenton as a certified state tourist destination). This was done by approaching the Town of Warrenton and County of Fauquier and requesting that money be included in their budgets for museum operation. As Mr. Harway pointed out, the museum averaged 7,000 visitors a year from 45 states and 21 foreign countries the prior year, and was clearly a benefit to the town and county. Both governments saw the value, and have supported the museum ever since. In addition, Mr. Harway’s committee secured state grant money and generous donations from individuals. By July 1995, the museum was open six days a week, 52 weeks a year, and staffed by paid docents. New computer equipment and programming used to catalogue the artifacts, photos and documents at the museum was also acquired. 48

The kitchen of the Old Jail Museum is one of the restored areas where staff members Chuck Pitcher and Margaret Robinson always take visitors. Mr. Pitcher is holding a vintage waffle iron used at the jail.

In 1997, Mr. Harway was elected president of the Society, and during his five-year term he expanded the museum’s outreach. One of his first projects was the Walking tour of Warrenton, which included publishing the tour itself, and designing and installing plaques on historical properties along the tour, which was completed in 1999.

Holding a degree in Historic Preservation, Mrs. Allshouse – the daughter of the late Ripley Robinson, a well-known Civil War re-enactor, and Margaret Robinson, a long-time volunteer and museum docent – enthusiastically accepted the challenge. In addition to the day-to-day operations, she has organized and executed several new programs.

Mr. Harway also initiated new historical events, including the successful “Salute to Lafayette” with Director Richard Gookin in 2000, and managing the publication of a new Fauquier County history book for the county’s 250th anniversary in 2009.

These include the Warrenton Ghost Tour and the 200th Anniversary of the completion of the Old Jail, both in 2008, as well as participating in the Fauquier County Bicentennial in 2009. The popular Warrenton Ghost Tour she started in 2009 has become an annual event.

Another important step forward for the Old Jail Museum was the appointment of the first full-time Museum Director in January 2007, during Mr. Gookin’s presidency. Frances Robinson Allshouse, a Fauquier County native who was awarded a scholarship from the Society in 2002, was selected as the director of the Old Jail Museum after graduating from the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg.

More recently, Mrs. Allshouse has worked with the county and other local historical groups on the Civil War Sesquicentennial observance, including publication of a brochure about the involvement of the jail during the Civil War, and creating a comprehensive timeline that is on display there. Other initiatives include mapping of the Warrenton Cemetery – which will prove old jail continued on page 50

to be an important resource for history student and genealogists when it is completed – and hosting presentations by experts on specific aspects of Civil War history that are free and open to the public. In the museum itself, a schedule of changing displays has been put in place, and plans for future projects focused on Fauquier County’s rich heritage are ongoing. Spaces that previously were only suitable for storage have been cleaned and painted, offering more room for exhibitions, as well as room

for museum staff, including volunteers and interns, to work on acquisitions and cataloging. In June 2010, Warrenton businessman and corporate lawyer Yakir Lubowsky was elected president of the Society. Since then, Mr. Lubowsky restructured the Society’s governing body along a more corporate model, and has worked to increase accessibility to the public by separating the annual meeting from the annual dinner, so anyone can attend the meeting and lecture without charge. He also sought to give the Society a role in opening and operating the Mosby Museum; led the effort to place


the Civil War Trails marker at the Warrenton Cemetery and compiled the information; and corrected and updated the information on the Mosby marker near the Old Jail. When he was chairman of the Education Committee, Mr. Lubowsky created the Society’s internship program and consolidated it with the scholarship program. Mr. Lubowsky recently stated, “My main goals are to connect the Society more closely with other historic groups; integrate historic projects with the town (he also serves on the Warrenton Town Council), and foremost, to assure the Old Jail Museum a solid financial foundation.” The Old Jail Museum will always be the centerpiece of the Fauquier Historical Society, which is continuously seeking to recruit new members, and share what it has learned and collected with the community.

Museum Director Frances Allshouse stands with one of the mannequins in the maximum-security cellblock that has frightened generations of school children who have visited the Old Jail museum.

The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information about the Old Jail Museum, or to join the Fauquier Historical Society, visit the Web site, www.fauquierhistory. com, or call 540-347-5525.

Thank you, for helping us grow like crazy.

Biz Buzz by Lawrence K. Emerson


It made an impression 29 years ago. When I arrived in Warrenton to toil at the local newspaper, the amount of scholarship money awarded to Fauquier High School’s graduating class seemed astounding. If memory serves, it exceeded $200,000. This year, the FHS Class of 2012 received more than $2 million in scholarships and grants. At Liberty, the total exceeded $1.6 million. Of that, some $200,000 came from local sources, according to Principal Roger Lee. At Kettle Run, the newest of Fauquier’s three public high schools, graduating seniors received several hundred thousand more to help continue their educations. With the soaring costs of college, those scholarships have become even more important than they were in 1983. And, the local commitment to help students remains impressive. Scanning the lists, great examples abound: • The New Baltimore Lions Club presented scholarships of $1,000 each to three graduates at Kettle Run and one at FHS. • The Remington Lions Club provided four grants of $1,000 each at Liberty. • The Fauquier Hospital Auxiliary gave 19 grants, totaling $18,000, at the three public high schools. • The Warrenton Ruritans handed out scholarships of $1,000 each to seven FHS grads.

The lists include gifts from families, individuals, Rotarians, American Legion posts, boosters clubs, Realtors and businesses. The local high school scholarship lists always make me think about local businesses and community. Sure, the national chains also contribute. But, on a percentage basis, nobody gives the way people and institutions with roots in a community contribute. Any local business owner who’s been around a few years knows that he or she each week will field at least one request for a donation, a sponsorship or an advertisement in support of a worthy cause. The generosity continues to amaze me. I think it distinguishes a real community, where people know and care about one another. This naturally leads to another “buy local” pitch. Sure, you might save a buck on Amazon.com or at some “big box” category-killer outside Fauquier. But, how much of their profits will come back . . . as contributions to the Ruritans for scholarships or to help the volunteer fire and rescue company pay for a new ambulance? What goes around comes around.
