Remove dirt, dust and airborne contaminants such as bacteria, fungus, mold spores, dander and pollen. According to ASHRAE (American Society of

Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers) most fiberglass filters are only 7% efficient in stopping dirt, dust, pollen, etc. from passing through them

50% of all illnesses are either caused or aggravated by polluted indoor air (American College of Allergists). One out of six people who suffer from allergies do so because of the poor indoor air quality. Children are more likely than adults to be affected by polluted indoor air. They breathe faster, inhale more air per unit of body weight and are closer to the ground where concentrations are higher. The elderly, asthmatics and people with breathing problems, allergies and lung diseases are also more likely to be more sensitive to pollutants (Department of Consumer Affairs)


Most people spend 60-90% of their time indoors (American Lung Association). Indoor air is found to be up to 70 times more polluted than outdoor air (Environmental Protection Agency).

Dearest Warrentonians, It is with a happy but heavy heart that I write my first and last Letter from the Editor. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time as the Managing Editor of the Warrenton Lifestyle Magazine for the past four years. It has been my job to continue to further the dream of the Publishers, Tony and Holly, by developing a magazine each month that is the essence of our town, a magazine that celebrates all of Warrenton’s remarkable features. It was here that I was able to see the heart of Warrenton. In 48 issues, I’ve helped share hundreds of stories, introduce local celebrities, engage new residents, highlight special non-profits and stimulate the imaginations of longtime natives. “I want you to wrap your arms around this town and get a feel for it,” Tony said on my first day. “There are so many good stories here that are just waiting to be told, it’s your job to find them and share them.” Those words would stick with me and have carried me through this experience. I’ve hugged this little town and she hugged me right back – not to mention the number of physical hugs I’ve received from people here. I have been fortunate to meet some of Warrenton’s most charitable, influential and supportive individuals – they are the heartbeat of this town. I was inspired by each of those beats while here and have made the decision to pursue a Masters in English at George Mason University full-time. With that I’d like to happily introduce the new Managing Editor, Kristin Heydt. Warrenton Lifestyle Magazine is excited to have a dynamic leader with a multitude of experience. A Warrentonian herself, she brings with her enthusiasm and passion for her community. Kristin is a great fit for this publication and will work to continue to share your stories. I ask each of you to open you arms and embrace Kristin in her new position – hug her like you’ve hugged me. Again, I am so thankful for the opportunities and experiences that you’ve offered me through the vein in this community.

Kristin Heydt

-Hugs, Krysta Norman 6

Community Fun Day One almost never hears the word “free” anymore. Sure, there are gimmicks and sales offers that promise values and discounts, but rarely does one actually encounter anything of value that is actually free. Perhaps one exception is a unique tradition at Warrenton’s Eva Walker Park on the last Saturday in July. In 2007, the members of Warrenton First Baptist Church set out to celebrate friendship and bring the community together for a day of family-friendly fun at Eva Walker Park. This spirit of love, joy, and generosity continues today as the Warrenton Community Fun Day scheduled on July 26th is projected to be bigger and better than ever. “We want to offer the community enrichment,” Jennifer Stacy, First Baptist Church committee-member emphasized. “Many of the kids who come to this event will look at it as the highlight of their summer.” She further explained that the celebration and Bible Camp offer activity, guidance and an emotional boost for some lower income kids whose summer outlooks might otherwise be quite bleak due to the absence of guidance from school resources. Face painters at the annual fête bring out kids’ inner party animals. Expect to see wolves(pictured) & owls hobnobbing with elite super-heroes.

The celebration is the capstone event of the church’s popular Vacation Bible Camp, which runs from July 2326 from 4-8pm, and includes many workshops for children through adults. Since the event’s inception, however, it has been designed to be a gift of love to the community and participation in the Bible camp is not required. All are welcome to enjoy this event. The activities for kids to enjoy are 100% free. “In many ways, it’s like a block party on steroids,” says Damien Sharp, chair of the event organizing committee. “It’s our goal to provide wholesome fun for the community.” Eva J. Walker Memorial Park is located in the heart of Warrenton, just down Alexandria Pike from First Baptist Church, and offers a host of amenities to the surrounding neighborhoods. The park’s namesake, Eva Jenkins Walker, was a long-time resident, member of First Baptist Church, and pillar of the community. Her passion for improving the lives of African-American children and the greater town community began when she and her husband opened a youth recreation center in the basement of their home in the 1960’s. Mrs. Walker served as president of the Warrenton Advisory Group, at whose urging the overall quality of life was improved in a tireless campaign to rid the town of blighted structures and broken services. The addition of sidewalks to Alexandria Pike is due largely in part to her efforts. Throughout her life she maintained this dedication to building community, quality of life, and pride in place remained her driving force. In this way it is only fitting that the park, once her dream, named in her honor, is the location for First Baptist’s community-minded festival. With relatively recent updates to the facilities, dedicated at the 2012 Community Fun Day, the park represents a jewel in Warrenton’s downtown. The covered picnic area and mature trees offer shade to visitors while the basketball courts and playground offer year-round exercise and activity to local residents. NoVAOutdoors.com highlights the park’s character as a peaceful oasis in the bustling county-seat of Fauquier. The park is well-loved due in part 10

to its proximity to several residential neighborhoods. On any given afternoon passers-by will see children working off their boundless energy on the jungle-gym, or a pick-up ball game taking shape. There are also plenty of benches well-situated for reading a book or simply taking a break to take in the sights. First Baptist’s organizers have planned a full-to-bursting docket of activities for kids of all ages to join in on the day’s festivities; covering almost every corner of the park. Expect to see water balloons, tug-of-war, threelegged races, an egg toss, pie-eating contests, jump ropes, an obstacle course, face painters, a dunk tank, rides, stilt walkers and even more. Hog Wild, Warrenton’s award winning barbecue caterer has jumped in and not only donated the grill for the event, they have also fully funded the giggling ricochet of kids’ enjoyment in the moonbounce.

and business contacts. The big prize of the day each year is one of two bikes donated by security company, Virginia Patrol Services, and is often matched by additional bike gifts donated by church members.

Kids and teens participating in the day’s free raffle have the opportunity to win a wide variety of prizes donated by the church’s very generous members

In addition to games, amusements and contests, the Community Fun Day will host Fauquier Health professionals providing free health screenings and

Adults can take part in a silent auction with a wide variety of items from beautiful decorative artwork and jewelry, to certificates for premium services such as full-car detailing from White Horse Auto Wash. Also, remember to bring your good luck charms because FBC is planning several rounds of B-I-N-G-O with an assortment of great prizes.

wealth of valuable information on maintaining healthy and active lifestyles. Nutrition, stress management and healthful living are key concerns, no matter who you are or where you live. Blood pressure checks, information about diabetes and common chronic illnesses will be the focus of the day. Representatives from Fauquier Health come equipped to provide answers and point participants to the appropriate resources when necessary. “It’s a fantastic opportunity to provide counseling,” says Fauquier Health fitness instructor, John Ferguson, who annually leads energetic Zumba® demonstrations to a pounding beat on the park’s basketball court. A long-time member of First Baptist, he is personally dedicated to helping members of the community achieve healthy goals by starting with a positive attitude. “With this music, you just can’t stay still. It is so inspiring to see people of all ages come together and move. In a way that’s the goal of this event -- coming together.” The church’s enterprising Kitchen Krew lays out a spread of picnic classics: hamburgers, hot-dogs, chips and drinks; free to all who attend the event. After all that, if you are still in the mood for dessert, or you’ve worked up a sweat on the Zumba dance floor, or playing tug-of-war, there will be shave ice to cool you off. Local ice cream truck, Big Daddy’s Ice Cream, is slated to be on site giving away cool, creamy treats for the kids; all funded by the event’s generous donors. Additional financial and resource supporters include a long list from the local and national business community. Notable local business donors include The Town of Warrenton, Joynes Funeral Home, Virginia Patrol Services, The Fauquier Bank, Fauquier Health, and Red Truck Bakery. Regional funders include Country Cookin’, Ledo Pizza, Harris Teeter and Red, Hot & Blue. Support from national chains include Applebee’s, Chick-Fil-A, Walmart, Denny’s Restaurants, and McDonald’s. The church committee emphasizes that without the support of these organizations and many other businesses and individual contributions, the event would simply be impossible. Anyone who has planned a large scale event of this kind knows that it is no small undertaking. Planning the annual event takes many months of careful organization and strategy, not to mention persistence in seeking out support donations. First Baptist Church’s community of members and supporters make this annual event look like a cake-walk. Which, by the way, they also have planned for the afternoon’s festivities. Don’t miss out. The First Baptist Church Community Fun Day will take place Saturday July 26 from 12-4pm. Admission is free and it is a drop-in event. Come for the burgers and moonbounce, stay for the community.


Amusements of all sorts delight FBC’s guests.

The Fauquier Historical Society at 50 Part 1: Preservation efforts initiated the rebirth of the Society


his year marks the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Fauquier Historical Society. The organization’s core mission of researching, celebrating and sharing Fauquier County’s rich heritage remains unchanged, but ambitious plans have recently been put in place increasing the number of new programs, expanding exhibits, and initiating changes to make the museum more self-sufficient. Today’s Fauquier Historical Society is a direct descendant of an organization of the same name started in 1915 by eminent historian Harry Connelly Groome (1860-1941), Judge Edward Spilman Turner (1870-1922) and Judge George Latham Fletcher (1874-1929). Mr. Groome was the master of Airlie, north of Warrenton, which he purchased in 1899. Between 1921 and 1924, he worked with local historians Alfred Horner, Curtis Chappelear and others to produce four annual bulletins for the society. In 1927, Mr. Groome published Fauquier During the Proprietorship, dealing with the colonization and early organization of the counties drawn from the Northern Neck Proprietary. In 1934, the society placed an historic marker on the front lawn of the County Office Building identifying the 16

by John T. Toler

location of the first Fauquier County Courthouse, and in 1936 donated portraits of Lt. Gov. Francis Fauquier and Lord Fairfax to the county. The society was active with other projects until Mr. Groome’s death in May 1941, but later disbanded.

For nearly a century after the Civil War, the population had stayed around 25,000, but growth was coming from the east, notably the Washington, D.C. suburbs. Impacts on Fauquier County included new housing developments, rising property values, and speculation by out-of-town companies. It became increasingly clear that without effective protection, the county’s historic assets could be at risk, as long-held properties were sold and subdivided, and vintage structures and historic sites found to be “in the way of progress.” While Fauquier County was working on a Comprehensive Plan to develop growth policies in general, it was up to committed local residents at the grassroots level to deal with specific issues – hopefully, before it was too late. In Warrenton, it took the removal of several old trees and the demolition of the 18th century Ross House on present-day South Third Street in 1962 to bring the issue of historic preservation to the forefront.

Society members were focused on inquiry, research and discussion, and their contribution to the knowledge of Fauquier County history was significant. However, while the fundamental goals were the same, the impetus for establishing a new Fauquier Historical Society two decades later was a bit more complicated. A NEED BROUGHT BY CHANGE By the early 1960s, Fauquier County was at a crossroads.

HARRY C. GROOME 1860-1941 Warrenton Lifestyle

Demolition of the 18th century Ross House in Warrenton in 1962 resulted in efforts to protect remaining historic structures in the town, including the 1808-1823 county jail. Of immediate concern was the 1808-1823 county jail, which for years had been considered inadequate for the number of prisoners confined there. It was reported that at times, over 40 prisoners were held in the four cells in the 1823 building, and the problem was compounded by the lack of separate facilities for juvenile and female prisoners. A Jail Committee headed by Center District Supervisor James F. Austin was appointed to study possible solutions. Serving on the committee were Judge Rayner V. Snead, R. O. Hogan, Sheriff Sam Hall, and Cedar Run District Supervisor James Gulick. In May 1962, the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors received a preliminary proposal prepared by Echols-Sparger & Associates, an architectural firm from Marion, Va., which recommended demolition of the Old Jail, and erection of a new, threestory structure on the site. The proposed prison would have 30 inmate cells, two isolation cells, a jailor’s office and a receiving area. It would be about the same height as the adjacent Fauquier National Bank building, and it was designed so that two additional floors could be added later, making it even taller. Estimated cost of the threestory structure was $160,000. July 2014

The proposal was presented to the public on June 14, 1962. Going into the meeting, committee members were already concerned about where inmates would be housed during demolition and construction called for in the plan, and aware of the rising public sentiment against it. Warrenton resident retired Gen. Lemuel C. Shepherd, USMC (1896-1990) presented a petition bearing over 200 signatures opposing the demolition of the Old Jail, and asking that it be preserved as an historic monument. Others spoke against the proposal. “Mrs. Herman Sholtz, former president of the Warrenton Antiquarian Society, said that they wanted the chance to turn the ivy-covered jail into a museum,” according to the report in the June 21, 1962 edition of The Fauquier Democrat. She was quoted as saying, “The new jail should be somewhat removed from Court House Square, and hidden away so as not to show the misdemeanors of our citizens.” Also speaking at the presentation was W. Langhorne Bond, who observed, “When people rise up to protect an old jail, it’s more newsworthy than when man bites dog.”

A vote was taken, and Sheriff Hall announced that the committee had unanimously decided not to build on the site of the Old Jail, and was considering an alternative location near the intersection of Lee and Eighth (now Ashby) streets. The Warrenton Supply Co. owned the property, and the asking price for the 100-ft. by 170-ft. lot was $8,500. However, Sheriff Hall pointed out that while building a new jail on the site of the old one would have cost between $185,000-$200,000, building it on Lee Street was likely to cost $280,000, or more. The county purchased the Lee Street property in June 1963, subject to clear title and zoning approval by the town. But what followed were two years of discussion, during which the Board of Supervisors dealt with protests from persons who owned property near the proposed site; rising cost estimates for the new jail; and what to do with the Old Jail. In July 1963, the supervisors heard from Mrs. Ethel Bishop, whose property was next to the site and felt that the new jail would hurt her property value. Thomas Simmons, who also owned an adjacent property, asked if “ …paddy wagons would be running in and out with all kinds of 17

the summer of 1964, the contract to build the jail was awarded to Central Valley Construction of New Market Va., low bidder at $268,000. In addition, the Roanoke Iron and Equipment Co. was awarded a $52,000 contract for jail fixtures. Adding in $20,000 in architects’ fees and other costs, the total cost of the new jail was over $350,000. REPRIEVE AND RE-PURPOSE But what was going to happen to the Old Jail? In February 1964, Mrs. Frances Carter Ritter presented a petition to GEN. LEMUEL C. SHEPHERD (1896-1990) was the Warrenton Town the first president of the Fauquier Historical Council, asking that Foundation (later Society). trees that had been cut down in the town be replanted, and characters the same time funerals surviving historic structures protected. are being held in the cemetery.

Hiden, Realizing that this would be false who proposed that a non-profit economy, the supervisors stayed with corporation supporting a museum at the original two-story design. When the jail be formed to receive donations the project was put out for bids in and transact business. 18

The idea of creating a “corporate body” separate from the county to take over the Old Jail and re-purpose it as a museum had gained traction since the June 1962 meeting, and with the awarding of the new jail contracts, the Board of Supervisors was ready to move ahead. In October 1964, Commonwealth’s Attorney Charles G. Stone presented a proposal to the board, calling for the Old Jail to be taken over by an incorporated group “…for use as a museum and repository of memorabilia of Fauquier County.” According to the document, “… the Old Jail is to be operated without expense to the county. The museum corporation is to keep it painted and in normal repair, and pay for all utilities. The county will be responsible for the expense of keeping the jail structurally sound and functioning, maintaining its walls, roof, guttering and heating plant.” In response, the Fauquier Historical Foundation (later renamed “Society”) was formed, with Gen. John B. Rose (1885-1966) as temporary chairman; Mrs. R. K. Neilson, Mrs. Turner and Mrs. Fletcher as vice chairmen; Mrs. Martha Carter Kelly, secretary; and Mr. Coyle, treasurer. Serving on the Rules Committee were Mrs. Richard Cutts and Mrs. Eastham Carter. As soon as the terms of the county’s proposal were accepted, the group filed for incorporation. Appointed as initial directors were Mr. Coyle, Mrs. Neilson and Mrs. Kelly, and Registered Agent was Warrenton attorney Upton H. Richards. The new corporation was called the Fauquier Historical Foundation Inc., and the State Corporation Commission approved the application on November 18, 1964. Shortly afterward, Gen. Shepherd was elected president of the foundation. Other officers were James C. Ambler, first vice president; Marshall historian John K. Gott, second vice president; Harry Pearson, recording secretary; John Chilton, corresponding secretary; and Mr. Coyle, treasurer. Even before the incorporation was complete, members of the foundation Warrenton Lifestyle

began holding meetings and planning for the future. In early November they met at the Fauquier Club, where it was announced that Robert R. Garvey, executive director of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, had sent a letter in support of their efforts. “We are pleased to know of the formation of the Fauquier Historical Foundation, and its aim to preserve this 19th century structure as a museum for Fauquier County memorabilia,” wrote Mr. Garvey. “ This is a most worthwhile project which should greatly add to the already numerous attractions of Warrenton and the surrounding area.” The following week, the group met again, this time hearing from Col. John Magruder, historian and museum director for the U. S. Marine Corps. He stressed that a successful museum must present a coherent, easily understood story – not merely a hodgepodge of miscellany. “You must decide how you want to present the story of Fauquier County,” said Col. Magruder. “Then you can determine what artifacts you will need to tell this story, and how they can be arranged to the best advantage.” ORGANIZING THE EFFORT To this end, a committee was appointed consisting of Mr. Gott,

Civil War authority H.M. Pearson of Remington, and Warrenton architect Washington Reed. Deputy Ron Stalls, the current jailor, conducted a tour of the buildings for the committee, and a superficial examination revealed only a slight sagging in the floor of the 1808 jailor’s quarters. Otherwise, the old brick-and-stone building complex appeared sound and sturdy. “Washington Reed volunteered to make a thorough inspection of the premises as soon as they are vacated to determine, if possible, whether changes have been made in the floor plan of the building,” according to an article in the Nov. 11, 1965 edition of the Democrat. “The foundation would like to restore the old jail to its original (1808) state, if that is compatible with the requirements of the museum.”

Ready to get started on the project, foundation volunteers immediately took on the task of cleaning the buildings and preparing them for a public opening. “Whitewashed, plastered walls were torn out, revealing the large planks from which the walls were made,” according to an account written by the late Isabel Palmer. “A heating system was installed, and the building rewired. Structural changes were made, such as removal of certain windows, in order to return the 1808 building to its original appearance.”

Over the next 11 months, the foundation met several times to discuss the work needed to establish a museum at the jail, the acquisition of artifacts, and how to raise money for what was going to be a significant project. Membership dues were set at $5 per year, and about 300 supporters signed up as charter members.

Other work at the Old Jail included the installation of exhibit cases, signage, and acquiring historic items through donation or on loan, some of which had never been on public display before. With the help of many hands, the Old Jail Museum was ready for its public debut on the morning of Feb. 22, 1967.

With the new jail on Lee Street finally completed, prisoners were moved from the Old Jail on Oct. 7, 1966. The following December, a special ceremony was held, during

Among the exhibits were a 1670 account written by John Lederer, the first explorer to come to the region that became Fauquier County. Also, the 1686 document signed by Lord

In December 1966, county officials and members of the Fauquier Historical Foundation gathered in front of the 1808 building for a ceremonial ‘passing of the keys’ to the Old Jail. Over the years, the brick and stone walls of the building had been painted white, and windows added that weren’t in the original design. It has since been restored.

On display were maps made from the 1736 and 1737 surveys of the land holdings of Lord Fairfax, and the sword presented to Fauquier native Lt. Presley Neville O’Bannon, USMC, in 1805 by the Virginia General Assembly, in recognition of his valiant service against the Barbary pirates at Tripoli. Other exhibits included posters loaned by the Virginia Historical Society in Richmond pertaining to the sale of significant properties in Fauquier County in the 19th century, including Fauquier White Sulphur Springs in 1859. With the museum open and serving as a base of operations, the first phase of the foundation’s ambitious effort to preserve and advance the history of Fauquier County was completed. Shortly afterward, the name of the organization was officially changed to “Fauquier Historical Society Inc.,” honoring the earlier group. “The pioneers of the society were successful in 1964 in saving the Old Jail from destruction and turning it into a museum,” wrote former president Maxwell Harway in 1977. “We can never forget these pioneers, and their enormous service to our county and our history.” Part 2, to be published in August 2014, recounts the early days of the Old Jail Museum, the long-term volunteer effort to keep it open and functioning, and its transition to a major historical repository and tourist attraction.

LIFE &Living





by Dr. Robert Iadeluca

When I was studying for my doctorate in Life-Span Developmental Psychology at Syracuse University I was the oldest full-time student on the campus. I was in my fifties at the time. There were others in that age group who had full time occupations and took occasional courses but one hundred percent of my time and money was put toward my education. I concentrated on studying life-span development as well as taking courses in gerontology, the study of aging. I was, in effect, a living symbol of the very discipline I was studying. The focus of the program was to examine and understand the changing psychological dynamics in individuals as they progress from infancy to old age. The lifespan development program was especially well suited for attending to the psychological needs of the elderly.

The PHILAPALOOZA Charity Golf Tournament In Loving Memory of Phillip A. Hughes

IN LOVING MEMORY In honor of our friend Phillip A. Hughes we dedicate this tournament to his Phillip A. Hughes Foundation. The mission of The Philip A. Hughes Foundation is to support youth programs and deserving children that demonstrate an aptitude in and a passion for the musical arts. Proceeds will benefit children of Fauquier, Loudoun, Culpeper and Rappahannock Counties.


I was awarded an Assistantship with the university Gerontology Center which meant that aside from my studies I spent approximately 20 hours a week over the course of four years counseling the elderly who lived in an apartment complex near the university. I counseled them regarding such problems as adjustment to retirement, couples disagreements and relations between neighbors. I conducted both individual and group therapy. My dissertation was “How the interests of adults affect their ability to understand.” This research centered around life-long learning taking into consideration that the cognitive functioning of older people depends on their previous experience. The sample of this study consisted of parents and grandparents. Upon graduation I was hired by the federal government as a research psychologist with the Army Research Institute. Much of my time was spent in examining Army families and the conflict between the requirements of the military and the needs of the family. While the spouses of the soldiers (primarily enlisted men) were not old, they were obviously adult. My training helped me to analyze their psychological as well as physical needs. In addition to this responsibility I was also appointed to be the ARI Equal Employment Officer responsible directly to the Commanding Officer. As such, I counseled employees who had experiences of sexual harassment and problems affecting home, work or the relationship between the two. Once again, I benefited from my knowledge of the psychological dynamics of adults as they progress through life. One of the major family problems was heavy alcohol use by the soldier, this leading me to studying more about

the disease of addiction. I began to take evening courses presented by the Chairman of the Department of Psychiatric Medicine of the University of Virginia Medical School. Two years of this enabled me to give a series of lectures to the entire ARI staff of over 100 on “Women and Alcoholism” and to become a Clinical Lecturer at the Tri-Service Alcoholism Recovery Department at the Naval Hospital in Bethesda. These lectures were given to recovering patients from all three branches of the services and all ranks up to and including general/admiral. Retiring at age 70 I contacted the U.Va. Medical School and became a full-time post-doctoral intern in the inpatient addiction unit at the Blue Ridge Hospital, working there (without pay) 40 hours a week for fifteen months. Then, obtaining the necessary Commonwealth license, I opened the practice I now have, putting on my business card “Adult and Geriatric Psychotherapy.” It had become apparent to me that my interests were no longer merely geriatric; they were moving downward in age. Two things became obvious to me as my practice moved along. One – the constant increase of substance abuse by teenagers and young adults in our community; two – that while I was working mostly with adults, therapy was often unearthing problems that had begun at a much earlier age. Both of these facts led me (while continuing to see older patients) to studying more about younger ages. This was consistent with my doctoral studies wherein I examined development from conception to death. My intake form was modified to ask about childhood feelings and behaviors. In addition to my asking patients about their current situation I asked

them if they had ever, even as child or adult, been physically, sexually or emotionally abused. The fact that they were alone with me and that their remarks were being kept confidential gave almost every patient the confidence to speak trustfully. The result was that although I was speaking to an adult, I was often listening to childhood hurt. My findings plus the conclusion of numerous research agencies led to the unescapable realization (now with a scientific backing) that “as the twig is bent, so grows the tree.” No matter what happens to us during our adult life, our inner child remains. My clinical interest had once again moved downward in age. I began to see patients as young as eleven or twelve and when treating adults, examined carefully their earlier life. The use of nicotine, alcohol or marijuana prior to high school often led to addiction in adulthood. This became especially important because this illness has been described as chronic, lasting a lifetime. Extensive research by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (described in detail in the March 2014 issue of The Warrenton Lifestyle Magazine) has shown to an almost one hundred percent certainty that abuse during the first five years of life can lead to later substance abuse and possibly other psychiatric disorders. Addiction can be prevented. My clinical interest (and that of my own life) has now widened from my interest in the end of life which led to such activities as with Hospice of the Rapidan to my recent conducting of a seminar for parents of children from birth to Kindergarten. I am still a future oriented person but thank you, Soren Kierkegaard, going backwards I now understand it better.

arrenton is not unlike many small towns in that her best features are modestly hidden within the people walking down Main Street. Around every corner, interesting folks with fascinating backgrounds, hopeful futures, crazy inventions, ambitious adventures, go about their daily lives with little celebrity. Matthew Innocenzi is one of those lesserknown gems with a passion for restoration and classic cars. His hobby and collection, known as Camelot Classic Cars, restores and provides for-hire vintage cars from his private collection for weddings, anniversaries and promotional events. As it would happen getting started was a passing thought from his now wife, Kelly. Innocenzi was preparing for his own wedding in 2002 when he purchased a 1958 Cadillac Sedan Deville to restore for their big day. “When I was dating Kelly, I was restoring the Oldsmobile, and she would help me,” Innocenzi explained. “She would go to junk yards with me, buff trim and put things back together on it. When we were at the junk yard she said to me ‘I would love a car with big fins.’” Some time later, after finishing the Oldsmobile’s restoration, Innocenzi happened upon a treasure glinting through the trees on an afternoon errand. The worn fins of a black Cadillac winked at him over the hoods of the crowded suburban parking lot of a landscape nursery center. He located its owner and made a sale with the idea that car would be a great new restoration project for the couple. “The car was in terrible shape,” Innocenzi recalls. “I worked on that car night and day for two years for it to be used in our wedding.” Within the two year period the car was stripped to bare metal to address any dents,

dings or rust. The body was primed with an epoxy primer and painted in the base coat/clear system using the DuPont Chromabase in the original Tuxedo Black color. The Deville was a matching numbers car, meaning the majority of the cars major components were still original. With that in mind, Innocenzi meticulously restored the antique vehicle to museum quality standards. Starting with the 365 cubic inch V8 with 310 horsepower engine, every inch of the car was renewed to the beauty of the day it rolled off the assembly line; including historically accurate black calcutta cloth with ivory surrounds on the Deville’s refreshed upholstery. The car was officially ready, and by this time, Matt was more than ready to marry Kelly. “Funny story about that car: a week before the wedding the transmission went on it,” he laughed. “Now everything has been serviced or addressed on it and it has performed flawlessly at other weddings; it just never made it to ours. I tell everybody, if anything is going to fail at a wedding, let it be the car.” Since 1992, Innocenzi has acquired a small fleet of classic General Motors cars, featuring popular Chevrolets and Cadillacs. The fleet roster fully represents each Mid-Century era mark of the General Motors Company including Chevrolet, Pontiac, Buick, Cadillac, Oldsmobile and GMC. His line-up includes a 1946 Chevrolet Fleetmaster coupe in tuxedo black with tan pin-striping cloth interior, a 1958 Cadillac Sedan Deville in tuxedo black with ivory and black calcutta cloth interior, a 1962 Cadillac Fleetwood in Avalon Blue Metallic with blue French rolled pleated interior, a 1967 Chevrolet Camaro in Matador Red with black vinyl interior, a 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu in Fire Engine Red with black vinyl interior, and a 1968 Oldsmobile Delta 88 in Maroon Metallic with black vinyl interior. Innocenzi’s appreciation for classic cars came from his father who was a loyal GM enthusiast. Innocenzi first learned to work on the cars in his dad’s shop, and his fascination with the automaker never left. July 2014

Above Innocenzi holds artifacts that he finds in the cars he restores. In his hands are cosmetic items including a nail file, high school parking sticker, small toys and coins.

“He [Innocenzi Senior] would bring me to car shows and help me identify cars,” he remembered. “Like, “that’s a ‘57 Chevy, that’s a ‘64 Mustang…” and with that, it helped create my passion today.” Considering many classic cars that are around today have been updated to include modern conveniences like larger engines, sound systems and more, Innocenzi’s work is quite unusual. He prefers to restore his cars back to the original factory standards and appearance.

“I do them original. I make all of my cars the way they look when they come off of the assembly line,” He stressed. “To me, numbers matching is crucial because that is going to make the restoration complete and separates my work and my discipline a little bit different from the rest.” He mentioned that when he purchases each car and begins to strip them down that he keeps all of the artifacts that have been long forgotten: old receipts, lipstick tubes, children’s toys, etc. All of these small trinkets and papers help tell the life story of each vehicle.

In addition to his exhaustive restoration efforts, Innocenzi works to track the history of the car back to the original owner. A fitting example of this provenance: the Cadillac he purchased for his own nuptials was originally a wedding gift from father to son in May of 1958. Cars have been known to drive memories for people, which is why Innocenzi does his best to reconnect the past owners with their cars. He has been successful on two occasions, driving to New Jersey to share the ‘58 Cadillac with its previous owner; a ninety year old woman who broke into tears when she saw the renewed condition of her once beloved chariot.

Innocenzi has also had the unique experience of sharing the documented restoration of the 1962 Cadillac with its original owner, Dr. Cyrus Partington of Colorado Springs CO, for whom the car held many poignant memories including his wife’s learning of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy over the car’s AM radio. It’s links like these to America’s past that drive Innocenzi’s passion for his work. That passion and attention to detail has caught the eye of film studios. “I get hired for Hollywood movies, too,” he mentioned. “It started in 2006, I received a newsletter from a local car club that I belong to with a call for cars in movies in the area. I

was in touch with the agency, and they used the 1958 Oldsmobile in a movie filmed in Washington D.C. called Talk to Me.” The movie chronicled the story of Washington D.C. radio personality and community activist Ralph “Petey” Greene, and many scenes were shot with Innocenzi’s cars at historic DC landmarks. “It’s a fever that I have,” he explained. “When I’m done with one car I want to do another car. These feelings overwhelmed me until it became a collection - almost like a hoarder. I put all of my energy into these cars and when they are done I really don’t want to get rid of them, I just get another one and the chain continues.”

July 2014




MadeShade IN THE


Rady Park has been a part of our community since May of 1994. With a lovely scenic view, it offers a wealth of outdoor enjoyment for the community. Active families frequent the playground, recreational soccer leagues enjoy the athletic pitches, and joggers and rollerbladers zip around the extensive trail system. One of the most beautiful features of the park is often the one most overlooked: the serene conservation arboretum founded by Fauquier County’s Master Gardeners. The arboretum at Rady Park is a peaceful area about 25 feet off the Fenton Farm fence near the playground. It is home to about 40 different kinds of plants, trees, and shrubs. Master Gardener Sharon Holmes has been working on the

project since its inception in 1999: the result of a collaborative effort between Master Gardeners in the county and also the county parks and recreation department. The first installation of plants and trees began in the Autumn of that year, followed by the planting of the remainder of the shrubs in the Spring of 2000. The gardeners mainly focus on trying to keep the landscape architecture interesting, as well as ensuring that those exhibits are appropriate the Virginia ecosystem. “We try to use trees and shrubs that are native but particularly underused that people don’t get in with their landscaping package in their homes,” stated Holmes. “I think we’re leaning really toward a lot of those [native] plants because we realize they create habitat for birds and pollinators, which

are very important to our survival.” Another reason the gardeners choose native plants to improve biodiversity. This means that if a deadly disease happened to start destroying a certain type of plant; the entire arboretum would not be at risk, just the affected species of plant. However, each year Holmes has expressed that they lose one or two specimens to weather, disease or deer damage, but best efforts are made to replace them. The loving care lavished on the project by the Master Gardeners has yielded beautiful results. By 2005, the garden gained momentum as a feature to be enjoyed by the general public. At each end of the arboretum they placed information kiosks which contain pamphlets with information and illustrations describing each plant and tree in the different beds, as well as an interpretive map. “The beds are numbered, so that anyone can pick up a pamphlet and pretty well identify what is there and a description as to how tall the plant is, when it blooms, etc.,” commented Holmes. The Master Gardeners organized the pamphlet this way to give visitors the opportunity for a self-guided tour, and an understanding of the growth habits, environmental benefits and life cycles of the featured plants.

Master Gardeners and volunteers come out in force to accomplish the heavy task of mulching the arboretum’s exhibit bed in springtime.

In 2008, Master Gardener and Cooperative Extension Agent, Timothy Ohlwiler approached Holmes with a new project. Ohlwiler oversees the all of the Master Gardeners in the Fauquier and Rappahannock counties and is described by Holmes as the “brains of the operation” in part because of his guidance in formulating the self-guided-tour maps. “I wanted the demonstration gardens to be used a little bit more. We’ve got them, we maintain them, and we might as well try and share them with the public,” stated Ohlwiler. Last year a guided walking tour of the arboretum was introduced to the Master Gardeners’ program of evening interpretive workshops known as Twilight Tuesdays. The workshops’ purpose other than the appreciation of the beautiful scenery, is to inform and educate the public on a variety of plant life, and to teach proper gardening techniques. Holmes led one of the walks through Rady park last Spring which attracted 20 people interested in the project. The popularity of the program is due to the value participants gain in learning about the plants from someone with extensive personal experience tending the arboretum and making it thrive. As opposed to advice given at garden centers, she is able to provide in-depth information and history of the plants. She explains the stories of individual specimens, addresses their health concerns and how they are maintained by the gardeners, or even at times nursed back to health. This gives attendees more of a personal touch than merely reading a brochure.

Now in its 15th year, those tending the arboretum have a full schedule of maintenance and upkeep, as well as occasional sprucing up to do on the 50 x 800 ft area. During each season, Holmes and Ohlwiler work together along with a core group of other Master Gardeners to keep the beds looking nice and maintain the health of the plants. “It is always fun to be here working with other Master Gardeners because you learn so much from each other,” noted Holmes. Several other groups have adopted sections of the arboretum, taking on the job --and joy-- of maintaining their plot. Gardeners who have adopted beds meet a few times a month during the warmer months. Although they are in charge of maintaining their bed, the Master Gardeners are the curators of the overall selection of plants. Since trees get damaged by harsh weather and annual plants eventually die, Holmes and Ohlwiler have created an advisory committee to manage an updated list of plants they have now and future trees they want to incorporate into the beautiful natural aesthetic of the arboretum. Clearly, the plants are not the only thing that make the arboretum so exceptional. It would not be what it is today without the extraordinary people that care for the specimens and grounds. “I think it is special because of the people I have gotten to know through this process,” stated Ohlwiler. Part of honoring the people and the natural garden they helped create, a memorial section is a soul-stirring feature of the Master Gardeners’ efforts. Tribute trees are labeled in the brochure and on small memorial plaques honoring the lives of five Master Gardeners or arboretum supporters who have passed away.

The next goal of the Rady Park Arboretum project is to get the word out in the community that the arboretum exists for the public’s enjoyment, education and involvement. “A lot of people do not know it is here because there is no signage out at the front of the park,” Holmes mentioned. When the gardeners are out working and maintaining the beds, nearby park visitors may notice them and all the hard work involved in keeping this arboretum healthy and beautiful. However, not many people notice it if they are just driving by, or never venture to that end of Rady Park. So as the arboretum enters a new chapter in its history with mature plantings, one might ask what is needed to foster future enjoyment by Warrentonians. The answer: Volunteers! The Master Gardeners emphasize that the future of the arboretum project relies on the cooperation between their organization and the community. The organization is keenly interested in fostering the development of future Master Gardeners. The certification takes about 50 hours of training from January through April. To learn more about the arboretum at Rady Park, have garden questions answered or investigate becoming an Extension Master Gardener, please contact the VCE- Fauquier County Office at 540.341.7950 ext 1 or helpdesk@fc-mg.org or stop by at 24 Pelham St. Warrenton.

Right: Cutting down to build back up, Master Gardeners trim and remove weather damaged plants to maintain a beautiful, healthy, and sustainable landscape.

Fauquier Health Fauquier Health Rehabilitation & Nursing Center Again Receives Prestigious Accreditation easy for residents to see what options are available and when.” Communication extends to patients’ families as well. Family members are welcome anytime, and are encouraged to talk to staff members about concerns or specific needs their loved ones may have. The CARF survey talked with all the stakeholders at FHRNC and found that communication among them – patients, family, staff – was excellent.

FHRNC resident Vivian Draper waters the plants in the wheelchair accessible garden. Residents enjoy the chance to get some sunshine and help tend the flora. Fauquier Health Rehabilitation & Nursing Center has been granted a three-year accreditation in both Inpatient Rehabilitation and PersonCentered Long Term Care, by CARF, the international accrediting body (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities). FHRNC is the only skilled nursing facility in Virginia with an Inpatient Rehabilitation accreditation. FHRNC is one of only two facilities in the nation holding both accreditations. The recognition is actually a reaccreditation; FHRNC has been accredited continuously since 2008. A team of three surveyors spent several days at FHRNC in March, completing a comprehensive survey on patient care and medical outcomes. Dr. Julie Ross, director of Inpatient Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, said that the visitors were especially impressed with two aspects of patient care at FHRNC: communication and quality. “The surveyors were amazed at how many recreational and educational choices we provide for residents – everything from Bingo (always popular) to classes, to special events, like a Senior Prom or a Pet Expo. We have big boards in several different areas that make it 40

Dr. Ross said, “To earn the patientcentered care accreditation, the surveyors want to be sure that the longterm care facility is seen – by staff and residents alike – as the residents’ home. A lot of emphasis is placed on dignity. At FHRNC, residents have the same freedoms they would have in their own homes. They can wake up, eat, sleep and participate in activities when they like. We don’t impose our schedules on them.” Communication intersects with quality when it comes to patient care. Dedicated to preventing problems like medication interactions, falls and pressure ulcers that can be common in long-term care facilities, Dr. Ross said that the facility uses patient care quality metrics on a daily basis to drive the best care. On the short-term rehabilitation end, the staff focuses on good communication to make sure patients are healing as quickly as they are able. Dr. Ross said, “We place a strong emphasis on providing a plan of care, right from the beginning of a patient’s time with us. We work to make sure that the discharge information and transition to home care is as complete as possible. We want to make sure that when the person is ready to leave our care, that they have the means to continue improving at home. That’s our commitment to our patients – get better, and get home.” Dr. Ross notes that the CARF survey is voluntary and is above and beyond already stringent state and federal

regulations. “Applying for the CARF accreditation helps to us to maintain the highest standards. We want to be sure we are performing at a superior level. ” She added, “Our dedicated staff deserves special kudos for all the work they do every day to ensure our commitment to quality and improvement is clear, not only to surveyors, but to our residents, patients, their families, and this community.”

Inpatient Rehab Facility Helps Patients Heal The Fauquier Health Rehabilitation & Nursing Therapy Suite is the only comprehensive facility in the area; physical, occupational, speech and aqua therapy are all provided under one roof. Recently renovated, the open floor plan provides easier access for patients, more choices for therapy activities and increased interaction between therapists and patients. A fully functioning kitchen, laundry and bath allow patients to practice skill of daily living with an occupational therapist. A dedicated speech therapy room has also been added. And FHRNC’s unique warmwater therapeutic pool allows for a low-impact, low-gravity form of physical therapy that uses rehabilitation techniques while in the water. The goal of physical therapy is to preserve, enhance or restore movement and physical function brought on by a disability, injury or disease. Therapeutic exercise, assistive devices, patient education and training are all used to help patients return to their highest functional level possible. In addition, several Fauquier Health therapists have received expanded education, like advanced certification in brain injury therapy for patients with stroke and other brain injuries.

hen it comes to carpentry, plumbing, landscaping and roofing, the adage “use the right tools for the job” rings true for a myriad of reasons. But when it comes to starting a new business, one might not immediately be aware of the tools necessary to build success. It only takes one or two experiences attempting a conference call from a busy coffee shop to realize that improvisation has only limited value in the growth of a new business. Moreover, navigating the complicated landscape of insurance, taxes, finance, and administration can feel like a full-time job over-and-above the already jam-packed schedule of an entrepreneur.

The Mason Enterprise Center program, with offices in Springfield, Fairfax, Leesburg, Manassas, and as of 2013, Warrenton, has an unparallelled history of providing groundbreaking

A Wealth of Opportunity at the Mason Enterprise Center facilities and assistance to Virginia’s newest business owners. The direct result of this program: 21,000 new jobs have been created throughout the region. As George Mason’s newest business development community, the training and resources available in Warrenton through the enterprise center positions Fauquier County in an ideal posture for economic growth and opportunity. Unlike typical executive suites, the program is designed to be a true incubator. “Client businesses are the beneficiaries of extensive coaching, and held to

a success timeline in which they are expected to “graduate” within two years; making room for new budding businesses to move in and begin their path to success,” explains Warrenton MEC administrator, Renee Younes. According to Miles Friedman, Fauquier County’s Director of Economic Development, the installation of the Warrenton George Mason Enterprise Center at 70 Main Street, was in direct response to the the burdens shouldered by Fauquier County’s business innovators. The Mason Enterprise Center, Friedman explains, is in many ways a “business accelerator;” providing a professional work environment and support facilities like high speed internet and a drop-in work space. “I used the [Mason Enterprise] Center workspace in Manassas. It was a godsend. It was the perfect arrangement to walk in and get right to work… and work well.” Friedman explains that the work space is a great solution for those entrepreneurs in the development phases who feel that their only opportunity is to work from a home office. “Some people can do it, but it’s a real challenge-- especially trying to balance family life and the demands of home while managing the demands of a growing business.” That sentiment is echoed by Judy Olsen, graphic designer and owner of By the Light of the Moon Design. “It’s been great,” adding, “I have been so much more productive now that I am able to work out of the house. My work hours are my work hours, and I am now able to actually enjoy my time with my family, rather than being preoccupied with my work at home.”

Miles Friedman explains that the Fauquier County Office of Economic Development’s choice of the George Mason Enterprise Center program was an easy one. “We looked at several models from universities and nonprofits throughout the US. The Mason program is ranked globally at the top in its class.” Participants can benefit from the advice of awardwinning faculty at George Mason University, and the intellectual capital from vetted local business leaders, and experts from the Small Business Development Center.

These are just the tangible features of the campus. The air of innovation in the midst of Warrenton’s commercial core is further amplified by an array of training programs backed by George Mason University’s broad resources in cooperation with the Small Business Development Center (SBDC). The SBDC is a cooperative program of local governments with 29 locations throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia; representing the most extensive business development program in the state. “It keeps me focused on my goals,” stated Brad Miller, owner of Black Tag Design. The young entrepreneur and web developer finds the Center’s coaching and timeline accountability built-in to the MEC’s structure a boon to his growing business, founded in 2013. 44

As an added benefit to working in this shared workspace, networking and referral opportunities mushroom naturally from the cooperative nature of the program. Brian Roeder, member of the Fauquier County business community, reflects on his own struggles during the development phases of his own successful company, “If I had had those resources available to me when I was building Barrel Oak Winery, I could have avoided countless headaches and delays due to mis-steps and not being pointed toward the right resources.” “Just the dedicated office space and highspeed internet alone would have been so advantageous to our first years before construction on the winery was even complete. But, if you add in the fact that you are surrounded by others who are also getting rolling with their businesses, you can share resources, like, ‘Who’s a good attorney for drafting my partnership docs? Who can help me with sales tax or insurance? etc.’ An environment like that is a goldmine for invaluable help.” His company, founded in 2007, now employs over 50 people in the Northern end of the County. This unique partnership program from George Mason University and SBDC caught the eye of Fauquier County’s Office of Economic Development after a lengthy collaborative brainstorming process between Fauquier County’s business leaders, chambers of commerce, and citizens. The goal of building a thriving and sustainable business community right here at home -- potentially eliminating a portion of the massexodus of commuters and commerce

that flees the County every morning between 5:00 and 7:00am for Northern Virginia and DC is a motivating factor. Warrenton Town Councilwoman-elect, and downtown business owner, Sunny Reynolds is excited about this economic prospect. “Even though this project is a cooperation between the Fauquier County and George Mason, [rather than the Town of Warrenton and GMU] the fact that we are actively encouraging entrepreneurial growth right here on Main Street represents huge potential for growth of the downtown business community.” Ms. Reynolds further adds, “I have been a huge supporter of this program for some time. Our community has needed something that provides resources to our business owners and fosters a healthy growing business community.” To participate in the George Mason Enterprise Center, prospective businesses will complete an application process to establish needs and eligibility. From there, the Center’s team of advisors will begin directing member businesses to the appropriate resources for optimum growth. The major qualifiers are that the business must be new, nonfranchised, Fauquier-based, and have goals for expansion. If this doesn’t apply to your enterprise, there are still resources available through the MEC designed to boost your business. The classes and training programs are not exclusively available to the tenants of the Mason Enterprise Center. Members of the business community are invited to take part in coaching in business planning, marketing, financial analysis, access to capital, business start-up and more. The George Mason Enterprise Center is a 3,300 square foot, handicap accessible facility located at 70 Main Street in Warrenton, Virginia. The facility features professional work space, a wellappointed conference room, private office spaces, including co-work suites, a copy center, kitchenette, and collaborative work environment. To contact the MEC, call 540-216-7100, or visit mec-fauquier.org.

t n o m e u Bl in War renton Now in its 38th season, the Bluemont Concert series recently unveiled 2014 Season schedule of Saturday evening concerts in historic Warrenton. Beginning on Saturday, June 28th, Bluemont’s popular concerts will continue the tradition of bringing world-class performers on Saturday evenings to the Warren Green lawn, located at the corner of Culpeper and Hotel Street in Warrenton. “We are very excited about this year’s wonderful variety of music,” said Lily Dunning, Bluemont’s new Executive Director. “All are welcome to join us for this great tradition of world-class music right here in our own community.” This summer, Bluemont will present more than 40 concerts in seven communities in Northwest and Central Virginia including: Ashland, Culpeper, Fredericksburg, Leesburg, Middleburg, Warrenton and Winchester. For

complete schedules, performer descriptions, directions and more information, please visit the Bluemont website at www.bluemont.org. Concertgoers are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or a blanket to sit on, and a picnic to enjoy before the show. All concerts begin at 7:30 PM. Admission is $5 per person, $4 for Bluemont friends and seniors, $2 for kids under twelve; proceeds go to support our Artist-in-Education program in Fauquier schools. As at all Bluemont concerts, no pets, alcohol or smoking are allowed. Bluemont relies on more than 1,200 volunteers each summer to ensure that performances go smoothly, and on the support of local businesses and community organizations. If you would like to volunteer this summer, please contact Virginia Winsatt at (540) 955-8186 or email virginia@ bluemont.org.

Bluemont Cultural Programs and Summer Concert Series have truly become a part of the fabric of the Warrenton community. Bluemont is currently seeking out local businesses, friends and neighbors to become Bluemont members help assure the organizations future in Warrenton. Many friends and families have responded to our recent mailing asking for general support. This year, every contribution will help. Businesses interested in becoming a sponsor are encouraged to contact Lily Dunning at (540) 955-8186 or email lily@ bluemont.org. Bluemont partners and major donors include the Town of Warrenton, the County of Fauquier, the Virginia Commission for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Airlie Foundation & Conference Center, Wells Fargo Advisors, Moser Funeral Home, NOVEC, Fauquier Bank, Oakview Bank, Loudoun Mutual Insurance Company, The Gerald and Paula McNichols Family Foundation, Middleburg Bank, Dominion Foundation, Target, Walmart and more than 250 local businesses and 1,200 friends and families.
