From the Publisher

My Favorite Time of the Year For me, no other month stands up to eventful June. We transition from the awakening of spring to the full outdoor assault of activities that keep us busy from morning to night. Vacations, or this year, staycations, will begin for many families. The calendar is overflowing in our area with outdoor events, equestrian competitions, graduations, concerts and Father’s Day. Twilight Polo begins at Great Meadow May 30 and runs through September 5, 2009. Pretty women, handsome gents, sumptuous tailgates, warm summer evenings, and the excitement of pounding hooves make the night’s fun unforgettable. www.greatmeadow.org. Friday, June 5, offers us another F!rst Fr!day on Main Street. My family and I enjoy these community evenings immensely. The children have a great time and we revel in the neighborly conversations. High school commencements take place in June for students from our area’s public and private schools. Families will reunite to celebrate at area restaurants, reflect on the accomplishments of their graduates and share philosophies concerning college life and beyond. The Fifth Annual Steve Athey Memorial Golf Tournament will be held on June 22nd at 1:00 P.M. at Evergreen C.C. in Haymarket, Virginia. Steve was a tremendous asset to our community serving on Town Council and establishing Warrenton-Fauquier Community Baseball that promotes our local semi-pro team, the Fauquier Gators. The league provides camps and scholarships to area students. For more information on the Gators baseball season or their camp for children, visit www.fauquiergators.org. Home opener is June 6th at FHS. The Upperville Colt & Horse Show, the oldest horse show in America, takes place June 1 – 7 and features many local horse show competitors as well as those from around the US and abroad. Steeped in tradition, it extends a full seven days, and involves over two thousand horse and rider combinations from young children on ponies to leading Olympic and World Cup riders and horses. The grounds are spectacular and the weather is usually perfect. www.upperville.com.

Sunday, June 21st, is a big celebration day in our family. First, and most important, it is Father’s Day, an obvious favorite of mine being a dad of four terrific children. There is nothing better than to hang out with my family and take a visit downtown to see the Car Show on Main Street followed by some ice cream. More info on The Partnership for Warrenton’s website at www.historicwarrenton.org. June 21st is also summer solstice and my 49th birthday. I get the longest day of the year to ponder, “What does it all mean?” Maybe we’ll start the day at Airlie in the Fauquier Free Clinic Pacemakers 5K/10K, www.fauquierfreeclinic. org, and then cap the evening off by trekking down the road to see Aerosmith at Nissan. At least I’ll be hanging out watching a group of guys older than me. Who’s driving? The Bluemont Concert Series begins on Saturdays in June, probably on the 20th (no schedule posted as of this writing). On warm Saturday summer evenings, families, neighbors and friends gather for world-class jazz, bluegrass, Celtic, rock, zydeco, folk and African dance music. Many people bring picnics to enjoy during the show. Tickets are sold on site on Culpeper Street the night of the events. For more information, log onto www.bluemont.org. The big news is the return of our Best of Warrenton survey. We are proud of our local businesses and delighted that we found a way for the community to honor a large majority of them. Warrenton is chock full of great places, people, services and shops. Pull out the enclosed ballot, fill it out and return it to us or, better yet, go online and complete the ballot through our website at www.warrentonlifestyle. com. You might even win our big $300 cash prize just for entering! We enjoyed meeting so many of you at the Spring Festival this year, another perfect day outdoors in Warrenton. The volunteers at the Chamber of Commerce did an exceptional job of running everything smoothly. As always, we appreciate the kind words and suggestions we received that day. It means a lot to our team who works hard to put out this magazine every month and our advertisers who support us. Enjoy June, the most remarkable month!

Improving the Game

A GIFT FOR DAD: A BETTER GOLF GAME By J en n i fer H eyns It can be as easy as one, two, three…… FORE! But golf can be frustrating, too. My husband’s favorite T-shirt says it all: I hate golf. I hate golf. I hate golf. “Nice shot!” I love golf. Many players, both novice and experienced, feel the same way during any given day on the links. The key to a good golf game is to have fun and enjoy yourself while out on the beautiful greens. The catch is that most likely, in order to enjoy yourself, you’ve got to have a good game, or at least prove to yourself that you’re improving your game. I had a chat with several local golf pros and they gave me some great tips for ways in which you can up your game. Most are in agreement that the best thing you can do for your golfing

Luzzi, who has been playing golf since the tender age of five, has been a professional golfer for 25 years and coaches several professional athletes including a few of the Washington Redskins and Washington Nationals and several PGA champions and players. He explains that there’s a lot of physics involved in golf and the best thing you can do for yourself is to team up with a pro. The first thing a professional golf instructor should show you, according to Jerry Donahue, a golf professional and owner of the Golf Tour Trailer Game Improvement Center in New Baltimore, is the proper grip and stance. “If you’re new to golf and you just try to go out on the course and figure

even if you’re an experienced player, if you don’t practice you’re not likely to see any improvement on the course. skills is to take a lesson and practice, practice, practice. Even if you’re an experienced player, if you don’t practice you’re not likely to see any improvement on the course. “Always try to learn something new,” says Bobby Luzzi, Director of Golf for the Kastle Greens Golf Club of Midland. “The game of golf is always changing, so find a reputable pro and take a lesson.” 8

it out yourself, you’re likely to develop bad habits that will hinder your performance,” he says. A good rule of thumb, says Donahue, is that you should be able to see just two knuckles of your left hand (the right if you’re a lefty) to facilitate the release of the golf club head - without the proper release you’ll slice the ball. What you want is a “neutral grip”,

adds Brendan McGrath, Head Golf Professional at the Fauquier Springs Country Club in Warrenton. If you’re gripping the club properly, he says, your palms should be facing each other and making a straight line from between them to your nose that tilts slightly toward the shoulder on your dominant Golf Continued on page 10 Warrenton LifestyLe

side (right if you’re right-handed and left if your left-handed). As far as trying to figure out if you golf as a righty or a lefty, McGrath says that most people go with whichever way they bat when playing baseball. Luzzi notices that there are two basic mistakes he sees golfers make. The first is not having properly fitted clubs. “Buying clubs off the rack is like going into a clothing store and getting an outfit that says ‘one size fits all’. They won’t. Have your clubs adjusted to fit you. Eighty to 90 percent of amateur golfers have clubs with a shaft that’s too stiff and not enough loft in their driver.” The second error he sees is players not using their practice time properly. “Golfers too often concern themselves with distance,” he notes. “The short game 10

AM is important. Don’t hit a3/18/09 whole8:00:37 bucket of balls with your driver - practice hitting 100 yards or less more than anything else because accuracy, not distance, is key.” Jamie Gravett, co-owner of Chipshot in Old Town Warrenton, definitely agrees. “Around the green is what needs the most practice,” he advises. “It’s true what they say: ‘drive for show and putt for dough’. The short game is where it’s at on the golf course.” McGrath explains, “When it comes to performance, the basic fundamentals are the most important part of the game: “Grip, stance, posture and alignment, or aim. I always check those things first because they are static positions and they greatly influence how you make your athletic movements.” The proper stance, according to McGrath, is tall but athletic, meaning the knees should be slightly bent, leaning the shoulders forward with hips back for good balance. When aligning yourself with

where you want the ball to go, he says that in order to be square most people feel like they are aimed slightly to the left (right if you’re a lefty) of their mark. Everyone is unique, however, and height, weight, build, physical abilities and many other factors play a role in each person’s performance, which is why having a professional help you in person is such a useful tool. You’ll feel it when you make a good shot, it will be almost like going Zen - at least that’s what they tell me. “You should try to feel a good shot, not see a good shot,” advises Donahue. “Many people look up too quickly to see where the ball is, but it throws off the follow-up on your swing - so instead of trying to see it, feel it.”

Looking good on the links can have a positive effect, too, especially if you’re looking good because you’re wearing proper golfing attire. “Wear the right clothes,” says Gravett, “Pants, shirt, glasses - you need to be comfortable so that you can concentrate and the shoes are especially important so that you aren’t slipping on the course.” And one last bit of advice: “Play to the best of your abilities, but have fun with it, too - you won’t improve if you try to make a chore of it,” advises Gravett. Jennifer Heyns is a resident of Delaplane, where she enjoys country life with her husband, two young sons, two dogs and her mother-in-law. She has been published in many local, regional and national publications and is currently working on her first book.

Make Lasting Memories


Wound Healing Center to Open in June They say that time heals all wounds, but that’s not necessarily true. Without advanced therapies, some wounds can take years and even decades to heal; in extreme cases, wounds that do not respond to treatment may lead to amputation. On June 9, Fauquier Health will open the Fauquier Health Wound Healing Center at 493 Blackwell Road, Suite 104, to offer the community state-of-the-art specialized wound healing care.

Patients covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most insurance plans may self-refer to the Wound Healing Center. However, one of the center’s missions is to build relationships with patients’ primary care physicians.

Dr. Jorge Minera, medical director for the new facility, says, “With the rising rate of diabetes, there is a great need for a specialized care center that can treat wounds associated with the disease, as well as help patients with other skin, bone and tissue conditions caused by illness or injury.”

“We become a partner in the patient’s medical care,” says Dr. Minera. “While we dedicate our efforts to healing the patient’s wound, the primary care physician is free to focus on treating the underlying cause or disease. Through regular reports and phone calls, we work with the patient’s doctors and other experts in the program to develop a total approach to treatment and care.”

In addition to Dr. Minera, six local physicians will be providing care for patients: Dr. Tam Ly, Dr. Joseph David, Dr. Robert Dart, Dr. Kevin McCarthy, Dr. Lynn Samuel and Dr. William Simpson. The doctors and clinical staff are skilled in the latest therapeutic methods in wound management and stay abreast of leading information through continuous training.

One of the highly specialized treatments offered at the center is hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which works by surrounding the patient with 100 percent oxygen at higher than normal atmospheric pressure. This increases the amount of oxygen in the patient’s blood and, in the case of wounds, allows red blood cells to pass more easily through the plasma into the wound to heal it from the inside out. Diabetic foot wounds are an example of wounds that may benefit most from this type of treatment.

To establish the center, Fauquier Health partnered with Florida-based National Healing Corporation, which manages wound healing centers nationwide. Dr. Minera explains, “Patients will be treated with state-of-the art technology and will have their progress charted through digital photographs. Our treatments are evidence-based and best practice driven. Our patients do not undergo any treatment or progress to a new level of treatment until the need is clearly indicated.”

Relaxing on a bed encased within a large see-through plastic shell, patients can watch movies on televisions and VCR players mounted above the chamber while hearing the movies and conversing with others outside the chamber through a speaker system. The only physical sensation resulting from the treatment is a slight pressure on the eardrum, such as that felt when a plane lands, as the air in the chamber is compressed.

Likely candidates for treatment are those suffering from diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections and wounds that haven’t healed within 30 days. The center’s hyperbaric oxygen chambers can also be used to treat patients suffering from such uncommon ailments as cyanide poisoning, gangrene, carbon monoxide poisoning, brown recluse spider bites and the “bends,” or decompression sickness.

In addition to tissue oxygenation, the Fauquier Health Wound Center also employs the use of vascular studies, tissue culturing and pathology, revascularization, bio-engineered skin grafting and clinical or surgical debridement.

Reflections On Life

Why Do We Work? Why do we work? If each of us had enough money in the bank to live comfortably through the years, would we leave our place of work today? Everyone has played this game of “what if” from time to time but depending upon the individual, the answer varies. In these rapidly changing times, the answer also depends not only upon the whims and abilities of the individual, but upon the world of work as it may be in just a few short years. Plans for the occupations of our students in the future should affect our education today. From the dawn of civilization until a century or so ago, there was no sharp division between the effort toward earning a livelihood and the effort toward daily living. There was no such thing as the “world of work” as set aside from “worlds” of play, family, or friends. Life was slanted more toward the livestock and the crops. Vehicles were crude and roads were a shambles or non-existent. The few newspapers made little difference as most people couldn’t read anyway. A person rose in the morning and made plans to survive a few more hours. At the end of the day, he had additional blisters, a possible brush with either a wandering bandit or the owner of his property and, if luck was with him, a couple of laughs and enough to eat before bedtime. The population grew and suddenly people were thrown together. Those who loved knowledge for its own sake or for the goals it achieved sought out others with knowledge. Instant communication became commonplace. Faster and more comfortable transportation became available. It was not necessary for a person to grow his own meat, potatoes and greens if someone else would grow extra and sell him a portion. He could use his time and abilities toward giving service, rather than just surviving. He could operate a store or a factory; he could become a carpenter, June 2009

or a bricklayer, or a teacher, policeman, doctor, congressman. He could devote his life toward Dr. iadeluca is a licensed particular interests, knowing that someone else would build Clinical Psychologist practicing in his house, educate his children, Warrenton, virginia. He specializes feed and clothe his family. in chronic pain, addiction, For some fortunate people depression and anxiety. these new opportunities existed. For others, survival was still the main goal, only now it was not how to find seed to grow the crops, but how to find money to buy the vegetables. Without money, services and goods couldn’t be bought. Without skill, a money-producing job couldn’t be held. Without training, a skill couldn’t be learned. The question – who was to do the training? When people traveled less and had no formal schools, they became apprentices. They were taught farming, or horse breeding, or wagon building by their fathers, their neighbors, their skilled friends. They were given hard task masters, long hours, and dirty hands – but they learned a skill. Without calling it such, they received an education and for the times in which they lived, it was a proper education. Who should furnish us our skill today? This is an important question, but an unanswerable one until we first ask: what skills should we have? Certainly we are all in agreement that we should learn occupations that will improve society. But what society? The society of 2009? 2020? 2050? Does this question seem ridiculous? Is this irrelevant to the curriculum in today’s classroom? Let’s do some quick arithmetic. If you are the teacher of a first grade pupil, you may find him or her either in college or earning a living by the year 2022. Babies being born today may be helping to support their parents by 2028. Many societal changes have already begun. Are we preparing our children to earn a living in such a society? What are we, as teachers, telling our children about what it means to “go to work?” What are our children learning from academic courses, business courses, shop or home economics classes? What is being taught in academic and vocational schools? If they are recently out of school and learning on the job, exactly what are they learning? Are they learning to repair helicopters? Make long-range weather forecasts? Create synthetic foods? Graft artificial organs? Talk with computers? Maintain space stations? Recycle drinking water? Work Continued on page 32 31

Dennis Rustom Lifestyle Ad 4.C 71 1

Work Continued from page 31

If some of our sons and daughters are not prepared to do any of the above, exactly how will they “bring home the daily bread?” A boy or girl born today will be 20 years old in the year 2029. What if, at that time, there are no gasoline-powered internal combustion engines on the road? Few wooden frame houses? No printed newspapers? Few large military establishments? No oil furnaces? No septic tanks? No overhead telephone or power lines? If their work depends upon the existence of any of these, how will they support themselves or their families? And, if they find locating and holding down a job a problem at the age of 20, what will they do when they are 30? 40? 50? There are further considerations. Indications point to less and less time being put toward earning a living. Already the four-day work week has been established in many areas. Although this trend still hasn’t affected most of us, it is moving rapidly. Those of us who are already adults may see the four and even three-day week before our retirement or death. Thirty-two hours a week, sociologists tell us, will be common. How will our graduates spend their time? Will all this extra time be a glorious gift beyond their wildest dreams, or will they wish they could spend more time at the job because they “don’t know what to do with themselves?” Will these young citizens and their families grate on each other because they see too much of each other? The amount of time they will spend at work may, in many 32

4/14/09 4:59:12 PM

cases, depend upon the type of occupation they have. And this will often be determined by the type of education they received. Futurists tell us that we will pass through four or five careers in one lifetime. Our tastes will change. We will be able to start one job at 20, retire from that at 35; change to totally different work for ten more years; and finally retire completely at 55 from an even different livelihood. With the possibility of a guaranteed income, each of us would then spend another 50 years serving the community in various ways. Life moves in cycles. Apparently we are about to return to a life where a job is not as sharply separated from the rest of living as it was in the 18th and 19th centuries. Our vocations, our recreation, our family life will be much more closely woven together. The jobs that we will have probably do not exist today and, in addition, will take less of our time. Occupational education for such a society, whether academic or vocational, must be flexible. All education, even now, must mean life preparation, not job preparation. With the population increase and a more complex life, each person will need to fill an important spot. As we prepare our children for the “job” they may have, school officials and faculty must keep in mind that we are actually preparing them for the life they will have in a new and uncertain society not far down the road. This is love in its most lasting form. Warrenton LifestyLe

Anxiety comes in many forms. Panic Attacks express themselves as palpitations, sweating, trembling, shortness of breath or a chest pain. Another form is OCD where the sufferer has uncontrollable obsessions and compulsions such as thoughts about contamination, an extreme need for orderliness or persistent doubts whether an important action had taken place. Social phobia is characterized by an intense fear of situations where embarrassment might occur, e.g. public speaking. Posttraumatic Stress Disorder might occur after a serious accident, a criminal assault, or a natural disaster. In all cases while medication might stabilize the patient, psychotherapy has been shown to be a highly effective treatment.

Out About Food

Warrenton Farmers’ Market: As fresH As iT GeTs By J en n i fer H eyns If it’s been a while since you’ve been to the Warrenton Farmers’ Market then it’s high time you gave it another whirl. You’ll likely find that it’s not the same as you remember. The market, which has roots dating back to 1978, is now completely full with vendors selling fresh and local produce as well as some very unique products. “We usually have a few open spaces, but this year we have all 31 spaces filled and a wait list 13 vendors long to get into the market,” says market manager Mickey Rhoades. Some may think that the failing economy is partially to thank for the flocks of farmers, vendors and consumers inundating the Warrenton Farmers’ Market and boosting its success. It would be reasonable to believe that financial worries would drive local residents to seek out market bargains and attempt to keep money in their home community, but Rhoades has a different theory. “When times are tough people tend to think, ‘If I have to go to the grocery store for other items anyway, I’ll just make one stop there and get everything I need,” she speculates. “I


think that the “going green” movement is more beneficial to the farmers’ market,” she explains, “It’s helping the public recognize the nutritional and global value that the market provides.” And she’s right. As people learn about saving the planet, they realize that it’s a lot like charity - it starts at home. By shopping for locally grown and prepared foods and products, consumers begin to establish a relationship with growers, producers and business people in their own community. They also save energy by purchasing directly from local growers and producers. Food doesn’t need to be shipped around the globe to land on one’s plate it can go straight from the field on the farm to the cabinets in your kitchen. The added benefit is that you know exactly where your food comes from. The Warrenton Farmer’s Market is a part of the Virginia Grown and Buy Fresh Buy Local programs. Over the past several decades, American small farms have all but disappeared. Competition from large commercial farms has Market Continued on page 36

The Chester family, of Dream Keeper Farm in Marshall, brings a host of unique products to the market each week, all made on their goat farm. Aside from giving us feta cheese, goats’ milk is “liquid heaven” according to Kaycie Chester and is used in products like hand and body lotion, intense and therapeutic cream, lip balm, soaking/bath salts, and soap. “This is our first year selling at the Warrenton Market and we are so thrilled,” declares Chester. “We have been shopping at it for years and I think the success is because of all the hard work and love everyone puts into their items. It’s a tremendous group of folks who are just nice...you can’t say that about too many groups these days. I think this year especially folks are seeing how important it is to think globally and buy locally.” A trip through the Warrenton Farmers’ Market will also reveal African handwoven baskets by Mohammed Attiah and his Bealeton company Temalle Ltd.; a wide array of honeys made from bees in the local area and from Florida thanks to Joe Orlando and his crew at the St. Ambrose Apiary in Front Royal, a variety of farm-fresh meats, hand grown and roasted coffee, beeswax candles, baked goods, eggs, annual plants, teas, emu eggs and products made from emu fat, nuts and many other products that you really should see for yourself. “We’ve become very diverse and multicultural,” boasts Rhoades. “We have representatives at our market from the Middle East, Egypt, Africa and Hispanic nations.” The market also includes a booth rented by the Bridges of Warrenton, a disabled young adults’ organization. The group has cultivated a garden and is now selling their

produce at the Wednesday market to raise additional funds for their organization. Unique to the Saturday markets now mini-seminars by the Master Gardeners of the Virginia Cooperative Extension. The group decided to start attending the farmers’ market as a way to have more interaction with the public as well as to educate people about cultivating and caring for plants. Their clinics are a great way to get information about your own garden, lawn or houseplants. Much to Rhoades’ delight, the market just keeps getting busier and busier. She notes that it’s rained several Wednesdays in a row and yet vendors still seem to be experiencing a steady stream of visitors. She’s thrilled that the market is fulfilling their short-term goals to support farming in our community and to provide an environment where the community can assist small farmers in sustaining their businesses and educating consumers about the benefits of buying local. Her work is far from done, though. Rhoades says that the long-term goal for the Warrenton Farmers’ Market is to create an “ag-tourist center” a permanent year-round location for the market. The Town of Warrenton would like to see the market become sustainable year-round and find a home that would allow for more local farmers and vendors to join. Having a year-round market would give residents a place to buy local and fresh on a permanent basis, instead of just seasonally, as well as provide another great business to promote to visitors and tourists, which would bring more outside money into the community. “To me, one of the best aspects of the farmers’ market is that we have all fresh food and locally-made products that go straight from the farm to your home and none of the processed food and junk you find in grocery stores,” says Rhoades. Again, she’s right. Imagine a trip to buy groceries and not an item in sight that will make you cringe when your child pleads with you, “Please, can I have one?” Additional Information: Wednesday Market 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the parking lot behind the Borders shopping center - best to come up Branch Drive and turn left into the lot. Saturday Market 7 a.m. to noon in the municipal lot on the corner of Lee and 5th Streets.

New Things to Do

An Art Studio with a Purpose As May flowers continue to flourish, a new art studio is blooming in Old Town Warrenton. Drab to Fab Art Studio, located at 9 N. Third Street, offers classes to suit almost every age group. For over three years, owner Tracey Edwards, who has an art degree from WVU, has been busy with her interior decorating company, Drab to Fab, where she has painted numerous custom murals. With many clients asking her to give private art lessons to their children, she finally decided it was time to make the leap. “I am very excited to have a place where one can come and explore the world of art through different mediums and also gain art history knowledge. Even if someone can’t draw a stick figure, through guidance, simple techniques and practice, you can train your eye to be able to create pieces you will be proud to display.” Tracey is hopeful that other artists within the community will be able to share her studio. “I would love the opportunity to work with other artists to offer a complete spectrum of classes and workshops.” Many different mediums and styles of art will be explored including abstract, watercolor, still life, sculpture, charcoal and pastels. Each series will produce four works of art and students will take information sheets home to create topics of discussion. “My hope is that fine art and its history will be a topic of conversation around the dinner table.” Tracey also plans to sponsor an event to showcase students’ artwork and provide an opportunity to give back to our community. Every student will be asked to submit at least one work of art that they are most proud of. In November, the students of Drab to Fab Art Studio will have a gallery opening where friends and family can view, discuss and purchase their framed art work. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Fauquier Family Shelter. “No matter how young or old students may be, we will be able to create something and do something that will help others in times of need. I am very excited to be able to give students a place to discover art, learn about art history and show them that through their creativity, they can give back to their community.” Drab to Fab Art Studio is located at 9 N. Third Street, Suite 209, Warrenton. Class schedules and descriptions may be found at www.drabtofabdesigns.com “Art Studio News.” Call Tracey at 540-272-5388 or email to art@ drabtofabdesigns.com with any questions.

Warrenton Rotary Collects Used Bicycles For Delivery Overseas

Warrenton, VA – From 9am to 12 noon, Saturday June 20th the Warrenton Rotary Club will once again hold its annual used bicycle collection at the Warrenton Community Center, located at 430 East Shirley Avenue in Warrenton. In collaboration with Bikes for the World, a sponsored project of the Washington Area Bicyclist Association, volunteers from the Rotary Club will staff the event to receive the bicycles from the public, evaluate them for tax purposes and issue receipts, and compact the bikes for shipping by removing pedals and baskets, and turning handlebars. The public is asked to bring donations of no-longer-wanted bicycles, for shipment to non-profit community development programs overseas, which refurbish and distribute them to low-income workers and students in need of affordable transportation. Millions of useable bikes gather dust in basements, garages, and storage areas across the United States. Millions more are thrown out every year. (Americans purchase close to 20 million NEW bikes annually.) Meanwhile, poor people overseas too often have little alternative to walking miles to get to jobs, schools, health services, etc. Good quality used bikes from the United States can be easily reconditioned in developing countries to provide affordable transportation. Typically, partners train and employ local workers in developing countries to recondition the bikes, generating productive employment. They distribute the repaired bikes 42

at low cost to low-income farmers, small businesspeople, and students so these individuals, who otherwise might have no transportation, can work and study more effectively. The Panamanian group employs individuals with disabilities to recondition the bikes, while the Costa Rican group provides capital in the form of bicycles to rural women for small business development. Other programs benefited to date include tsunami recovery and health care delivery. Bikes for the World (BFW) relies on U.S. volunteers to collect, compact, and ship bicycles. Still, the effort incurs many expenses, including trucking and international shipping. The average cost of getting a bicycle overseas, with spare parts, and getting good information on partner programs, is between $15 and $20. Therefore, a tax-deductible $10 per bike donation is suggested to defray a portion of the costs. BfW will provide a receipt good for tax deduction purposes, for the value of the bike as well as any financial contribution. So put your old bike to good use! Donate it to Bikes for the World! If you have a bike to donate and cannot make it to the collection, limited storage is available for the first time, so bikes can be donated before the event. For further information on the Warrenton collection, email Diane Markva at d.markva@yahoo.com. To contact Bikes for the World, visit www.bikesfortheworld.org, or call Keith Oberg at 703-525-0931.

There’s No Place Like Home Aging in Place in Fauquier County By AuBree silver, HABiTAT for HumAniTy By CHris miller, AGinG ToGeTHer Aubree Silver was promoting volunteerism by and for seniors when she stopped by Fauquier’s Habitat for Humanity office. Before she knew it, she became their Volunteer Coordinator, recruiting and supporting the volunteers who are the heart of Habitat’s mission to build affordable homes for needy families in the county. Last year, when Aging Together offered its local funds to implement special projects, Aubree jumped at the chance to bring together these two agencies. According to Aubree, “it seemed like such a simple way to help seniors. It made sense to pair the funds from Aging Together with Habitat’s volunteer labor force.”

for the satisfaction from the work she does and the people who benefit. Karen joined Habitat after hearing about their Women Build project. It was a great way to use her skills and interest in building, “without tearing up my own house repeatedly,” she says. She participated in Habitat’s volunteer orientation program as well as workshops taught by the local Home Depot. With Habitat between home building projects at that time, there wasn’t anything immediately available to do. “When Bob brought up the idea of doing home repairs for seniors, I jumped at the chance.” In the course of working on the first home, installing a ramp for a person in a wheelchair, she and her crew had a great time. “We all learned from each other and became a team. So the next time Bob brought up a senior home needing repair, we were ready to go.”

the bathtub was virtually gone.” So volunteers repaired the bathroom floor too. Esther Russell, Emergency Assistance Coordinator of Fauquier Community Action, has been coordinating services for emergency home repairs for needy families for 15 years and she has never tired of her work. “I love it! I love meeting people and seeing the success stories.” Community Action has a small pool of funds provided by the state through the Department of Housing and Community Development. But they are limited to $1,000 per household. To make up the rest, Esther pulls together resources from other community organizations and individuals. She likens it to “putting together a puzzle, you just have to find all the pieces that fit.” When she heard about the Aging Together/Habitat collaboration, it was one more piece she could add to that puzzle. Both Esther and Bob maintain that the older people they assist are often, but not always, struggling financially. According to Esther, the increasingly limited incomes of retirement pensions or Social Security are not enough. People have to choose between home repairs and paying their bills. They also see people who have the resources but no longer have the physical ability to do simple tasks such as cleaning out gutters, replacing screens, or fixing loose banisters. Bob tells the story of one couple who was having trouble with a light in their living room. They hired a handyman to find and fix the problem. He told them their overhead light would have to be replaced and charged them $95 for the advice. When Habitat’s volunteers went in, they were able to address the problem by spending fifty-nine cents to replace the light switch. Bob and Aubree were touched by a woman who came to the Habitat office in tears trying to find help to install grab bars in her mother’s bathroom. Habitat was able to purchase the grab bars with the funding provided by Aging Together, and their volunteers installed them. While in the house, they were able to take care of a number of other minor repairs that will help keep the house safe and in good working condition. Bob suggests that anyone, handy or not, can assist seniors in the community. People can offer to help with everyday chores or repairs such as mowing a neighbor’s lawn or replacing light bulbs or heater filters.

Fauquier Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with the community and people in need to build and renovate homes and to provide simple, decent, affordable housing. Habitat is a “hand-up” not a handout. To volunteer or make a donation, contact them at 540-341-4952 or by email at info@fauquierhabitat.org. 48

UPPERVILLE, Va. – Since 1853, equestrians, horse breeders and spectators have gathered in Upperville to admire some of the nation’s most talented horses and riders. The Upperville Colt & Horse Show (UCHS) is the oldest horse show in America. It was founded to encourage better breeding of horses. The one-day show has grown into a weeklong tradition with classes for children, adults and families. Each year beneath the oaks at Grafton Farm, more than 2,000 horse and rider combinations compete throughout the week. The show raises funds for the Upperville Volunteer Fire Department and other area charities. The 156th Upperville Colt & Horse Show takes place June 1-7. The week culminates with the $100,000 Budweiser-Upperville Jumper Classic, which draws top riders from across the nation. The Jumper Classic will be held on Sunday, June 7 at 2:30 pm. Prior to the Jumper Classic, the Pedigree Country Fair will take place on Sunday from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm with pony rides and games for the kids. Other entertaining events include the Jack Russell Terrier races, Basset Hound demonstrations, and horse drawn carriages. Plan to bring the family, be entertained, browse and shop the food and retail vendors, and just spend the day in some of Virginia’s most beautiful countryside. Gates open at 8 am throughout the week. Admission is $10 per person. Children under 12 are free when accompanied by an adult. Bring a picnic or purchase a variety foods on the grounds. June 2009

In Action

Proceeds of the tournament will support Warrenton Fauquier Community Baseball, Inc. (W.F.C.B.) and provide scholarships for Fauquier County students. The Golf Tournament keeps alive the memory of a great leader of our community that was also a devoted father, husband, businessman, friend, and councilman. W.F.C.B. is a charitable organization co-founded by Steve to help promote his vision of education through baseball. The most notable aspect to arise is the Fauquier Gators. The Gators are a collegiate summer league team that plays their games in the Valley Baseball League. Their season begins on June 5 at 7:30 P.M. The team hosts many other charitable organizations throughout the season such as the Boys and Girls Club, Boy and Girl Scout troops, and the American Cancer Society. Spectators can expect to see food and clothing drives at certain games. The Gators are also sponsoring their Second Annual Free Opening Day Baseball Camp for grades K-8 for hands on training for baseball fundamentals. For more information about the tournament or the Fauquier Gators, please visit www.fauquiergators.org or contact Brian Athey at brianathey@aol.com.

The start of summer is almost here and the children will soon be out of school. Whether you are looking for something to occupy them this summer or a way to get a jump on academic skills, we have it. Vint Hill Academy has opened on the campus of Allegro Community Music School in Vint Hill. They offer summer writing camps, tutoring, college preparation, and resumé counseling. If you are looking for something a little more artistic, try the new Drab to Fab Art Studio. Tracey Edwards is the owner of Drab to Fab Interior Decorating and has moved it to a new location with the art studio on N. Third Street. She will be offering art classes for children ages 4 – 13 and adults can sign up for the 1st and 3rd Wednesday evenings of every month. We also have some other things to celebrate this month. Piccaddilly Ltd, which has been closed for some remodeling over the winter, hopes to re-open soon with a fresh new face and many fun new products to complement their usual stock. They are excited about seeing their customers that they have missed over the past few months and are grateful for their patience. We also have an anniversary to celebrate - the UPS Store has been open for one year and is doing well, due to the impeccable service and beautiful facility they have. For those who are unaware of their location, stop by the store in the shopping center next to Taco Bell and wish the owner, Pam Gore, a happy anniversary. The dermatology practice of Dr. Lawrence J. Finkel is expanding their MedSpa 360. They will hold an open house on June 18th from 4 – 7 pm, offering light refreshments, free gift bags, and cosmetic representatives on hand to answer questions. Come by to meet their estheticians and learn more about the services they provide and take a tour of the new facility. We have word of a couple new businesses coming to town and an update on two we have been following: Envy Nails & Spa will be opening next to the new Harris Teeter, along with a new Mandarin Chinese restaurant. The Red Truck Bakery & Market is coming along in grand style and is hoping to open in early June, while the Buckland Farm Market has some final details to take care of before they open. That will be a joyous day! Amy Griffin is the owner of inFauquier.com, the most comprehensive online directory of consumer businesses located in Fauquier County.
