From the Publisher…

Best of Warrenton Launches My Favorite Month of the Year I still cannot imagine a better time of year than what June offers. The weather, the flora transitions of the season, the shedding of our last winter remnants and scheduled events galore all make June a month to relish. Who doesn’t already have plans for a graduation, picnic, bike ride, equestrian competition, outdoor concert or beach trip? Anchoring this issue is the Sixth Annual Best of Warrenton survey. We, at Warrenton Lifestyle and Piedmont Press, are proud of our local businesses and delighted that we found a way for the community to honor and promote a large majority of them. Warrenton features some of the finest places, people, services and shops you will find anywhere. We run the survey each year to help create awareness of all that we have available in our community, to enable you to consider shopping locally. Only area businesses, people and organizations are eligible. This is consistent with our advertising policy. The Warrenton Lifestyle does not accept advertising from businesses outside our tax-base, Fauquier County. We believe the upside value of a healthy hometown economy far outweighs the loss of ads we could get from other counties. 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. New this year is a pull down menu choice for each category. Everyone that received a vote last year is already entered to simplify your choices and make our tabulation process more automated. And, you could win our big $300 cash prize just for entering! Looking for things to do in June? Look no further. Here are some of my favorites: Friday, June 3, offers us another First Friday on Main Street. My family and I enjoy these community evenings immensely. The children have a great time and Holly and I revel in the neighborly

conversations. Music, crafts, food and, of course, many of our local merchants will remain open. The 158th Upperville Colt & Horse Show, the oldest horse show in America, takes place Monday, June 6, thru Sunday, June 12, 2011 and features many local 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. Pretty women, handsome gents, sumptuous tailgates, warm summer evenings, and the excitement of pounding hooves means it is time for Twilight Polo at Great Meadow, now through September. Gates open at 6:30 p.m. each Saturday. The crowd favorites will continue this year with entertaining half-time activities, tailgate competitions and dancing under the stars in the Meadow Club polo pavilion after polo. www. greatmeadow.org. On Saturday evenings throughout the summer, families, neighbors and visitors gather for the Bluemont Outdoor Concert Series in Warrenton across from St. James Church on Culpeper Street. Enjoy jazz, bluegrass, Celtic music, rock, rhythm and blues, zydeco, African dance, folk music and more. Many families bring picnics to enjoy during the show. All Bluemont concerts are smoke-free and alcohol is prohibited. Pets are not allowed in the concert areas. For more information call (540) 3410988 or visit ww.bluemont.org. Sunday, June 19th, is Father’s Day, an obvious favorite of mine being a dad of four terrific children. There is nothing better than hanging with my family and taking a trip downtown to see the Father’s Day Car Show on Main Street followed by some ice cream. The show is sponsored by The Partnership for Warrenton. www.historicwarrenton.org.

Revel in June! You deserve it.

re you still reeling from your heating bills and dreading the upcoming cooling bills of the summer? Does your home have hot rooms in the summer, cold rooms or drafts in the winter? Do you want to reduce your carbon footprint? If so, you could benefit from a home energy audit. A home energy audit is your first step to analyze how much energy your home is using to evaluate what steps you can take to lower your usage. An audit will pinpoint problems, that when corrected, will save significant amounts of money every month that you own your home. It offers you an “unbiased solution” to your energy questions. A home energy audit consists of a thorough inspection of your home and its systems and diagnostic tests, including a blower door, infrared camera and other industry tools to evaluate the home. A “whole house” approach is used which means your house is looked at as a complete system. A home energy audit checks for gas leaks and the air exchange rate of your home. By improving you home, you improve the air you breathe. The blower door is a tool that tells an auditor how leaky your home is and where the leaks are located. The blower door consists of a frame and tarp that covers your door with a fan that mounts inside to pull air from your house. These tests determine the air infiltration rate of your home. With the fan running you can go around your house and feel where the air is infiltrating into the house. The areas where the air is leaking from are telltale signs of where your energy is leaking, costing you money every month. Another very useful tool is the infrared camera. This camera forms an 8

image using infrared radiation similar to a common camera. The images from the IR camera help diagnose a problem by seeing temperature differences. It is a non-invasive way to “see” what is going on and can “see” through walls, roofs and other areas we can’t. Now that you know about the tools, what should you expect of your energy audit? During the two to three hour visit to your home, the Certified Energy Auditor will collect considerable data on the structural components and mechanical systems in your home and complete a visual inspection of your living space, attic, basement or crawlspaces. This scientific analysis includes infrared thermal imaging scans of interior and exterior areas of hour house to identify sources of major air leaks and insufficient insulation. Evidence of hidden moisture and water leaks may also be detected, which deteriorates structural components, promotes mold and decreases energy efficiency in the home. Your information will be analyzed to determine necessary steps for increasing energy efficiency, improving comfort and reducing energy costs. While at your home, an Energy Auditor will discuss conditions about the house as you know them, including comfort problems you have experienced, maintenance frequency of heating and cooling systems, drafty areas, approximate age of appliances, and other issues with our specialized checklist. The auditor will walk around and go through your home, attic, basement and crawlspaces, but it is not necessary for Efficient continued on page 10

you to clean these areas for us. They do ask that if you have a wood burning fireplace, you clean the ashes before the audit. It will be necessary for the doors and windows to the house remain shut, and therefore, please limit traffic in and out of the house during the audit. For a short period of time, the auditor will also need to turn off the homes air conditioning/furnace to perform tests. During the audit they will ask you to point out such things as: • Gas Meter (if natural gas or propane is used) • Attic and crawl spaces • HVAC and hot water appliance locations • Exhaust fans within the home • Area of your home • Thermostats All of the data collected will be used to compile a comprehensive report showing you how to improve and save energy in your home. The report will give you a prioritized list to help you decide what items will give you the most bang for your buck. The most common item people need to do to their home is to air seal the attics. Air leakage accounts for 25-40 percent of the energy used for heating and cooling of a home. Sealing is done by spray foaming all around the perimeter and around all the top plates (where the walls come together). Then the proper amount of insulation should be added to equal today’s energy code which is R-49. Doing this to your home will decrease your energy bills Efficient continued on page 12


The ability of a thermal imaging scan to locate your specific problem locations can minimize the need for costly and invasive investigations and repairs. Scans done before and after repairs can be compared to quantify and recognize improvements. It is this ability to see surface temperatures that allows energy auditors to more accurately identify problems that would have otherwise been missed. Warrenton Lifestyle

Fauquier Worships

The Church on the Hill

A peaceful church with a traditional brick frame, white beautifully subtle trim and brilliant flower boxes grace Alexandria Pike. Under the guidance of Reverend Matthew A. Zimmerman, Jr., the First Baptist Church has provided Warrenton a way to glorify God through the teaching and preaching of his word. Establishing its roots in 1867, First Baptist Church has been a solid foundation in the African American community. “Historically speaking, First Baptist from what I can read and gather has occupied a pretty special area in the community always being the first African American church in our area,” Pastor Zimmerman explained. “This church occupied a position not just as a premier church for African Americans but a social foundation for the African American community.” The strong connection between worship services and social gatherings has made this church on the hill a destination calling for the services of an equally rare Pastor. Obtaining his Pastoral Counseling Degree from Duke University, Pastor Zimmerman set forth to serve but was wildly unaware of where this would take him. Beginning as a collegiate Pastor in Pocatello, Idaho home to Idaho State University Zimmerman put his knowledge and skills to work aiding the small community. From there he was recruited to become an Army Chaplain.

“I thought, ‘I’ll volunteer for 3 years then move along to something else,’” Zimmerman smiled. With 27 years of experience in the Amry, he moved 24 times in 27 years including Germany twice, Vietnam and about 15 states in between. He gained an unimaginable amount of experience working with active duty chaplains and assistants, selecting assignments, training, as well as their destination. He retired with the remarkable title of Chief Chaplain of the Army. “I have been in all 50 states, and I’ve slept in all of them except Vermont and New Hampshire,” he added. Aimlessly finding his way to Warrenton, Virginia in the mid 1990’s he quickly realized that the First Baptist Church would be his new home. “My Father always said the Lord moves in mysterious ways,” Zimmerman recalled, finding humor in his career that some would call a journey. Clearly being a restless man of service and a world traveler, Zimmerman found comfort in our community. He is, for the first time, a Pastor of a Church and it’s the longest he has ever been in one place in his career. Zimmerman insisted that an intimate church was the best way in which he could serve his parishioners as well as the community. With the fellowship at First Baptist continued on page 16

This is the ninth in a series of articles about local churches and houses of worship. The purpose is to introduce you to the distinct features of each congregation, their philosophy and atmosphere. We believe that churches, temples, synagogues, etc are some of our best community centers. As you read about them each month we hope you will find one that interests you and your family. This month, we take a look at First Baptist Church.

First Baptist continued from page 15

just under 200, on any Sunday there are full pews with 120 individuals there to worship the Lord. “I have never had the desire to pastor a large Church,” Zimmerman explained. “The small size of this church was a drawing point to me. You get to know the people, what their dogs’ names are and whether or not they have a parakeet. You’re able to know the members exactly -- that’s what I think a minister should be about.” Along with sincere familiarity, the First Baptist Church offers a number of organizations that have been positive within the church as well as the community. A program called the Lending Closet helps those who are in need of food, clothing, and furniture to help provide certain basic needs. The church has a separate Women’s Club and Men’s Club. Their purpose is to raise funds for the church and to provide support for all of its programs. They have an Usher Board that is in attendance every Sunday providing service as greeters, door keepers, floor runners and to hand out service programs to the congregation. They have a thriving youth program with members of the church and many that are not. Embracing their desire to be involved they participate in activities that include recreation and worship. Three days a week they offer activities for

their youth, like choir rehearsal, bible study class, youth fitness, Zumba, or study hall. The church recognized that children were interested in the program but struggled to find transportation, so the solution was to use two vans and help collect the children who wanted to participate. Every first Sunday of the month is Youth Sunday. Children are active in the service reading scriptures and celebrating music from the Youth Choir known as “Voices of Hope.” Soul-stirring music daintily floats in old town from the melodic sounds of the adult choirs. Three are within the congregation, an all women’s, an all men’s, and the combined talents of both called “Voices of Harmony.” These hymns truly excite, encouraging parishioners to share in God’s grace.

Sunday School is provided every week for both adults and youth. They provide a comprehensive program that encompasses the educational needs of those in attendance. The Adult Sunday School is organized as an informal and open discussion, allowing adults to freely speak and find deeper understanding. Youth Sunday School is organized similarly in a fun and accepting environment in which the children feel compelled to learn.

Traditionally a predominantly African American congregation, the First Baptist Church is an integrated church and they welcome all kinds of folks.

The Joseph E. Penn Family Life Center is also an integral part of the church. Zimmerman’s predecessor, Pastor Penn understood the need for another center to house community activities. While the building is an adjunct to the church it provides positive activities for the community as a whole as well as the fellowship. This year Hollywood used its facilities. The cast for J. Edgar Hoover directed by Clint Eastwood used the building for make-up and wardrobe changes.

The First Baptist Church is located at 39 Alexandria Pike. Every Sunday Adult Sunday School is from 10am – 11am and Youth Sunday School is from 10am – 11:45am. The morning worship service begins at 11:00am. Please visit their website for more information at www.firstbaptistwarrenton.org or by calling (540)437-2775.

Twice a year the First Baptist Church and the Warrenton Baptist Church (WBC) participate in an exchange service. Teaming up with fellow Duke Alumni Pastor Jay Lawson of WBC they each visit one another’s church - bringing with them their congregation and a guest sermon. It’s an ideal way to bring both fellowships together to worship and form relationships.


“We want to foster the idea that our people don’t have to be cut from the same silk,” Zimmerman said. “Employment, education and economically speaking, it’s important to see that we are accepting of everyone. I guarantee from their first visit people can see and feel that here.”

Fauquier History

Memorial Day 2011 - part II We honor our World War II veterans By John T. Toler

Seventy years after America entered the global conflict, we honor those among us who answered the call to arms. Part I included Lloyd Forbush, U.S. Navy, and Rosser Payne, U.S. Army Air Corps. Part II is devoted to J. W. “Bill” Lineweaver, U.S. Army, and Roland Tapscott, U.S. Marine Corps.

Bill Lineweaver:

Three battle stars for combat in Europe People who meet Warrenton’s J. Willard “Bill” Lineweaver soon learn three things about the man: that he was in the furniture business on Main Street for many years and served as a town councilman and mayor; that he is married to the former Elizabeth Carter; and that he served in the U.S. Army during World War II. Bill Lineweaver’s lengthy public service is well known – 15 years on the Warrenton Town Council, followed by election to mayor for six terms (19741998). It is also known that he and “Bizz” have been married for 68 years last May, and that they are the proud parents of three daughters, six grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. Less is known about Mr. Lineweaver’s World War II service, beyond the facts that he served as a sergeant in the European Theater of Operations. Few may know that he participated in three major actions – the Battle of the Bulge, Remagen Bridge, and the Rhur Pocket campaign – and that he was awarded the European Service medal with three Sgt. Bill Lineweaver near the end of his battle stars and the Bronze Star medal, European tour of duty. Note division crest among other decorations. on helmet. Originally from the Shenandoah Valley, Mr. Lineweaver’s family moved to Fauquier County when he was six years old. His father managed Whitewood farm near The Plains for many years, and young Bill grew up on the farm and attended county public schools. On Dec. 7, 1942 – exactly one year after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor – Mr. Lineweaver enlisted in the U.S. Army, and completed his initial training at army camps in Mississippi and Texas before being sent to Ft. Benning, Ga. There, he received specialized training in communications, preparing him as a company communications sergeant. Memorial Day continued on page 22

The Battle of the Bulge

Stateside preparation ended in mid-October 1944, when Sgt. Lineweaver’s unit, the Antitank Company of the 393rd Infantry Regiment of the 99th Infantry Division, departed Boston for LaHarve, France. They soon arrived at Krinkelt, Belgium on the Siegfried Line, where they were assigned a 19-mile area to protect from the Germans, positioned only ¾ of a mile in front of them. “The Germans were looking at us, and we were looking at them,” he recalled. “We were called the ‘Battle Babies’ by the other units, because we were so new to combat.” Little did they know that the Germans were planning a massive counteroffensive aimed at splitting the Allied forces in Europe.

The Lineweavers, shortly after their marriage in May 1943.

The tense standoff ended at 5:30 a.m. on Dec. 16, 1944, when the Germans commenced a 90-minute artillery barrage on the Allied forces facing them across an 80-mile front. It was the beginning of the Ardennes Offensive, better known as the Battle of the Bulge – so named for the “bulge” into the Allied lines that resulted. “The first shell they fired fell on my company,” said Mr. Lineweaver. One of the first casualties was his RTO (radio telephone operator) standing nearby, whose right arm was amputated by shrapnel from one of the German shells. “The hot metal cauterized the wound, and he was flown back to a hospital in Belgium, and survived,” he recalled. As the shelling continued, Sgt. Lineweaver sought cover in a brick barn where a Krinkelt farmer kept his cows. A shell hit the barn, but he escaped injury or death when the cow next to him took the shrapnel and most of the impact. “Later I wrote to Bizz, and told her, “Honey, we’ve got to buy a cow!” he said with a chuckle.

Bill Lineweaver trained in Mississippi, Texas and Georgia before being sent overseas.

Fighting a massive assault by German tanks from the south and infantry from the east, the 393rd fell back to higher ground northwest of Krinkelt on Dec. 19. By then, there was two feet of snow on the ground, a result of the storm that had also grounded Allied aircraft. Setting up a defensive position on the Elsenborn Ridge, Sgt. Lineweaver took over as platoon sergeant. Anticipating a German attack, the men stood guard, two hours on watch and two hours off. “When the shells start to fall, there isn’t a hell of a lot you can do,” said. Mr. Lineweaver. While dug in on the ridge, his men changed their positions and dug new foxholes each morning, in case the Germans had detected any movement and drop 88-mm mortar shells on them. “A higher being told us to keep moving,” he added. The real fighting during the Battle of the Bulge lasted five days. As the weather cleared, Allied aircraft joined the

Elements of the 99th Division, moved through the town of Wiltz, Belgium while withdrawing from Krinkelt to the Elsenborn Ridge.

battle, and reinforcements, including the 82nd Airborne Division, were brought in to engage the Germans. The German advance was stalled by Dec. 19, and an Allied counterattack underway by Dec. 21. It is estimated that U.S. forces suffered over 80,000 casualties in the Battle of the Bulge, including 19,000 killed, making it the largest and bloodiest battle that Americans fought in World War II. There were many acts of heroism. T/Sgt. Vernon McGarity, a member of Company L of the 393rd, was the only soldier awarded the Medal of Honor, which he received for his heroic actions

I respectfully declined.” The other two men accepted, and within three weeks, one was killed and the other – who had a Major League Baseball deal when he got home – lost a leg in combat. Not all casualties during the battle were caused by enemy action. Mr. Lineweaver recalls that after the pilot bailed out, a British warplane, damaged in the fighting, crashed through the entry door of the building being used by the 99th Division G-3 (Operations) section. “All of the 12 or 13 men inside were killed, leaving only a first lieutenant, who was immediately promoted to major,” he recalled. As in all wars, faith played a major role in getting through battle. “If you went to war and didn’t believe, there was something wrong with you,” he said.

Remagen Bridge and the Rhur Pocket

Following the Battle of the Bulge, the 99th Division stormed across the Siegfried Line, crossing the Cologne Plain and reaching the Ludendorff Bridge at Remagen, on the Rhine River, in March. “The 99th was the first full division to cross the Rhine into Germany since Napoleon,” Mr. Lineweaver recalled. “We crossed 36 hours before it was destroyed,” by German air attacks.

as a squad leader at Krinkelt on the first day of the battle. Sgt. Lineweaver received the Bronze Star, as well as an offer for a battlefield commission to 2nd lieutenant. “Three of us (senior NCOs) were told to shape up and report to the colonel,” recalled Mr. Lineweaver. “We were offered battlefield commissions, and I asked if I would be returning to join the men I was serving with for the last two-and-a-half years. When I was told I would be heading for a replacement company instead of returning to my unit, 24

Once in Germany, Sgt. Lineweaver’s unit came upon a German officers’ club, where they found cups of coffee – still warm – on the tables. His unit later captured the Hohner musical factory, which had been making ball bearings for the German war effort. There they “liberated” a safe containing a large amount of German marks. The money – by then considered worthless by the Allies – was used to buy a German bar for a day, according to Mr. Lineweaver. Sgt. Lineweaver’s last action before returning to the U.S. was the clean up of the Rhur Pocket, which took place in late March and early April. As German forces collapsed under the Allied onslaught, over 300,000 Nazi troops were taken prisoner. At that point, the 99th Division was transferred to Gen.

George Patton’s 3rd Army, and assisted the final drive across the Danube to Bavaria. By April 21, 1945, the war in Europe was over. One of his more memorable experiences was the liberation of a large group of Russians from a German forced labor camp. “They kissed us on both cheeks and gave us Vodka they had made from potatoes. It was so strong it made my helmet rise off my head!” he recalled. “Once they were free, they told us they were going back to Russia … and started walking.” While some elements of the 99th Division had left for home in February, Sgt. Lineweaver was still in France as the war ended. He had suffered an injury when thrown against a building during an artillery attack, which produced a cyst on his lower spine. As the war was ending, he found himself in Liege, Belgium, waiting for a troop ship to take him home. “I never missed any duty because of the cyst, which was painful and had to be treated with 200,000 units of penicillin,” he recalled. He finally got back to the U.S., where he spent time in the hospital at Ft. Meade, Md., before coming home to Warrenton. Dr. Jim Sinclair continued his treatment here. In the years since the war, Mr. Lineweaver has returned to the Ardennes Forest with his family three times. In 1991, the Lineweavers visited Krinkelt, where they met a man who spoke English, and had a scrapbook that included an article about the 99th Division’s liberation of the town. He noted that he was seven years old at the time. The man’s son, a graduate of UCLA, later joined them. While in Krinkelt, the family visited the barn where Mr. Lineweaver sought cover on the opening day of the battle, and was saved by the cow that stood between him and German shell fragments. “The barn was still there, and we could see where the hole in the brick wall had been patched,” he said.

Roland Tapscott-

War in the Pacific: Providing critical supplies for the final push to Japan

His company’s first sergeant took all of the photographs of their unit on Banika, including this picture of Cpl. Tapscott in the supply depot’s recreation tent. U.S. Marine Corps veteran Roland training as a member of the 1st Tapscott spent nearly all of his tour of Marine Division’s 21st Replacement duty during World War II in a forward Company. “Nothing else much operating base in the South Pacific, happened there,” he added. But that but his experiences there were nothing would soon change. like the drama and romance in James Pvt. Tapscott’s unit left New Michener’s Tales of the South Pacific, or Caledonia aboard the USS Crescent the 1950s musical based on the novel. Instead, he was one of the unsung heroes who labored every day maintaining his part of the vital supply link across the vast ocean, ensuring that the U.S. military had what it needed to retake the islands and bring the war to Japan.

Mr. Tapscott was living in Washington, D.C. when the war broke out, and enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps in April 1942. He completed Marine Corps Basic Training at New River, N.C. (also known as Munford Point).

Pvt. Roland Tapscott, USMC, on the day he left Marine Corps training at New River, N.C. for San Diego – and ultimately to the war in the South Pacific.

From there, Pvt. Tapscott was sent to the Marine Corps Base at San Diego, in anticipation of overseas duty. In early 1943 boarded the USS Bloom Fontaine for Noume’a, New Caledonia, in the South Pacific “…a former French colony that once served as a prison,” according to Mr. Tapscott. There he received jungle

City in July 1943, landing at Guadalcanal on Aug. 13, 1943. At the time, Guadalcanal was still in the process of being secured. “When we got there, it was a little before dark,” he recalled. They were immediately told to board two APCs (Auxiliary Personnel Craft) for a voyage to Banika, an island about 60 miles to the west.

While the Marines were boarding the APCs, Japanese aircraft attacked the APCs and the supply ships that had accompanied the Crescent City to Guadalcanal. Pvt. Tapscott witnessed the sinking of the USS John Penn (AP-53) off Lunga Point. From his standpoint, it appeared that a kamikaze suicide plane hit the John Penn. “As they came at us, the lead plane had its lights on, so that they appeared to be U.S. planes,” he explained. “The last plane went Memorial Day continued on page 28

right down the ship’s stack,” causing a large explosion and sinking the ship. A later investigation revealed that the crew of the John Penn had hit one of the attacking torpedo bombers, which crashed into the mainmast. Within seconds, a torpedo dropped by another attacking plane hit the John Penn at the No 5 hold, damaging the stern of the ship, which sank at 9:50 p.m. – just 20 minutes after the start of the attack. In the meantime, the other Japanese airplanes strafed the APCs. “It was really a nightmare,” he recalls. “There is no place to find cover on an APC. I thought I would be safe under this big metal box, but later found out that was used to store 20 mm ammunition – not a safe place at all!”

USMC Supply Depot, Banika

Map of Banika, in the Russell Islands, where then-Cpl. Tapscott spent the duration of the war.

The Marines finally made it to Banika, one of the Russell Islands, which are part of the Solomon Island group. Banika had been retaken from the Japanese earlier in 1943. Due to its harbor and strategic location, Banika was developed as a forward supply base for the 1st Marine Division, as well as having a tank 28

farm and two airfields used by Marine F4U (Corsair) fighters and Army Air Corps B-25 medium bombers. Once on Banika, Pfc. Tapscott was assigned to a trucking company, part of the 4th Marine Depot. In addition to tanks, artillery pieces and fuel, all types of heavy equipment were delivered to the depot at Banika. From there, the supplies and equipment were loaded on barges or smaller ships bound for the battlefront. Living conditions on Banika were primitive, with the Marines working at the depot living in two-man pup tents. “There were no houses there,” he recalled. The only evidence of the former occupation by the Japanese was trenches and defensive earthworks they left behind. The largest building was an abandoned soap factory that had been used to process the island’s coconut crop before the war.

to go to New Zealand, or the New Hebrides, where there was “a little civilization.” Cpl. Tapscott never got to go.

The long trip home Word reached Banika soon after the atomic bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan in early August 1945, ending the war. However, due to their remote location and the slow draw down of troops and supplies in the Pacific, thenCpl. Tapscott did not start for home until December 1, 1945.“There were so many troops, sailors and Marines in the Pacific that they were behind schedule finding transportation to get the men home,” he recalls. Cpl. Tapscott was finally given a berth on the USS St. Louis – unusual Memorial Day continued on page 30

PFC Tapscott felt that as a driver, he had it easier than some of the other Marines, driving trucks and operating cranes and bulldozers instead of handling the freight. But due to the unpredictability of the supplies and materiel coming through to the front, “You never knew what you would be doing day-to-day,” said Mr. Tapscott. The work could be 24/7, and it was often difficult to remember the date, or even the day of the week. There was always the possibility of an enemy attack. “From our first night on Banika for several months afterward, we were bombed and strafed by the Japanese,” he said. “We lived in foxholes at night, and you could see dogfights between the Marines and the Japanese. Some of them were very close … I thank the good Lord that I didn’t get hurt. Several other Marines did.” Opportunities for R&R (rest and recuperation) were few, although some of the Marines on Banika got

On Banika, then-Pfc. Tapscott was assigned to the massive Marine Corps supply depot as a truck driver and heavy equipment operator. Warrenton Lifestyle

was a leader in the community, serving on town and county boards and commissions and working for civil rights. He was active in the American Legion, and continues to serve on the Fauquier Veterans Memorial Committee. After retiring from their respective careers, the Tapscotts moved to Culpeper in 1998. Their time together in Culpeper was brief, as Mrs. Tapscott died in June 2001. Later, Mr. Tapscott became reacquainted with Mary Brooks, an old friend who had recently lost her husband, at a family reunion. They started dating and were married in April 2004. Mr. Tapscott sold his home in Culpeper and the couple moved to Upper Marlboro, Md. However, Mary had heart problems, and died in June 2005. Mr. Tapscott returned to Warrenton in 2007, where he is surrounded by friends and the evidence of his many achievements as a family man, community leader, and World War II veteran.

He was discharged on Jan. 11 1946. On the way home, Mr. Tapscott’s first stop in Virginia was in Halifax County, where his girlfriend, Nettie Sue Stephens, was teaching school. They were married on Feb. 2, 1946, and until the school year was over, he made the trip from the home he bought in Washington, D.C. to Halifax County every weekend to be with his new wife. At the end of the school year, she moved to their home in Washington. The Tapscotts lived in Washington until 1952, when Mrs. Tapscott got a position teaching English and Science at the new W.C. Taylor High School in Warrenton. Now a civilian, Mr. Tapscott commuted to his job as a transportation officer and supply management officer for the U.S. Navy in Washington, D.C. for almost 30 years.

Communication & Relationships

I Can’t Read Please, Let Me Your Know You’re Mind: Listening This is the fourth in a series of articles about relationship communication – how it works, why it doesn’t, and how to make it work in our relationships. Thank you for your feedback on my last article. Keep those e-mails and comments coming! I hope this article addresses some of the communication issues we all face.

by Philip Mulford

Silence. I say something to my spouse and get no response. Just silence. Maybe a change of facial expression or body language that I can’t interpret, but no words. I wait. Maybe it’s me, but I’m a strong believer that words are a big help when it comes to communication. I’ve never been very good at reading my wife’s mind. Oh, there have been some exceptions, but on the whole I don’t expect I will ever be proficient at reading her mind. Maybe I’m too demanding, but I need words. Having said that, I admit - I often do the same thing. I’ll listen to her and then quietly think about what she has said. I’ll operate on the premise that she knows I’m considering her words thoughtfully, that I’m not ignoring her, and that when I’m ready to respond, I’ll respond. The odd thing is, often when I respond there’s no obvious connection between my response and what she’s just said. If she were privy to my thoughts, she’d see the clear connection, but I haven’t put those thoughts into words. Meanwhile, as I’m responding, she’s looking for the connection in what I’m saying to what she said – and it’s not there. So she’s not really listening to me. She’s left to wonder what I thought about what she said. She’s looking for the connection. Sometimes she’ll even ask, “What’s that got to do with what I was talking about?” We do this weekly radio show together called Communication360. One week we were talking about the 40

“little things” that test our relationships. I found out on that show that if I left our bed unmade in the morning (which I often did) it made her feel unloved, taken for granted, as if she were my servant, like I didn’t care about her. Who’d a thought? She admitted that she’d never really told me how it made her feel (ah, there it was, the defense I needed). I admit she had said things like, “Honey, you left the bed unmade” or “Should I make the bed or are you getting back in it?” (this after we’d dressed and were downstairs having breakfast). But I never connected those “hints” with how it made her feel until she actually told me how it made her feel on the show. She’d assumed all those years that somehow I knew how it made her feel; that I left our bed unmade to send an “I don’t care about you” message. She’d assumed that I would “get” her hints; that I could read her mind. I was shocked. I thought she was kidding. “You can’t be serious,” I scoffed. “Who cares whether the bed is made or not?” I asked in disbelief. Then something about the look in her eye and the way she wouldn’t let it go made me realize she was serious (so I suppose it’s not just the words that matter). But it was the words she shared with me that were so helpful. Once I realized she was serious, that she meant her words, I was able to tell her that an unmade bed was in no way intended to be an indicator of my love for her. It was just an indicator of whether I’d made the bed or not. (The old, “Don’t take it Mind Reader continued on page 42

personally” approach.) However, because she had explained to me with words I could understand and hadn’t attacked me and called me a variety of things (lazy, a jerk, etc.), but had instead informed me about her feelings, I realized she’d given me insight into her – special knowledge of how I could communicate my love for her. I could have tried to convince her that whether I made the bed or not shouldn’t bother her. I could have suggested (gently, of course) that if was so important to her that the bed be made, she could make it. Instead I took that information and said to myself, “I can do this.” There’s rarely been a day since then that I’ve left the bed unmade. And I hope on those few occasions that I leave it unmade she sees it as an unmade bed and nothing more. More importantly, I hope that every day she sees it made she feels loved. Finding the words to express our feelings can be hard. For me it’s a real challenge. I often think that my feelings won’t matter or that I’m making too much of a situation, so I don’t even tune into them. Given the choice, I’d rather listen to my wife’s feelings than express my own. And generally speaking,

when encouraged, she’s pretty good about expressing her feelings. But as good as she is, and as reticent as I am, we both often participate in conversations that include breaks of silence where the other is left wondering. Now don’t get me wrong. Silence can be a wonderful thing. But when it comes to discussing the issues and decisions we all face as a couple, I find it reassuring and helpful to know that what I think matters enough to my wife for her to hear, understand, and consider it. Silence doesn’t serve in those instances nearly as well as words. Ironically, we’ve all been trained to process our conversations the way I’ve described – with breaks of silence. We’ll listen and then silently digest what we’ve heard. The picture of the thoughtful, contemplative, wise individual who considers carefully what he or she hears before saying anything is appealing. But that picture assumes we understand what we just heard. As we cogitate silently, we invest ourselves in our own interpretation of what we heard. But two things can happen that cause communication breakdowns when we interact this way: 1. We may interpret what we heard incorrectly. 2. The speaker will want to know if you understood what he or she said. (This occurs even though the speaker has been trained to assume the listener understands.) Unfortunately, these breakdowns don’t show themselves in easily remedied ways. They instead generally lead to arguments. If we misunderstood what the speaker said, we may find ourselves in the argument that goes, “But you said…!” Followed by, “But that’s not what I meant!” That argument is often more heated than necessary because of the emotional and mental investment the listener has made in listening and considering a response – not to mention the fact that the listener is being told he or she is wrong. One way to eliminate this from our discussions is to accept the fact that no matter how long we’ve known each other, we cannot read each other’s minds.

that comes from feeling like our spouse “knows us” so well that we don’t even have to speak, I think there’s a stronger sense of love, honor, and respect that comes from not presuming to know what our spouse means, thinks, feels, or wants. So, since your spouse can’t read your mind, instead of silently ruminating over what you assume was meant while your spouse waits in anticipation, you can simply tell your spouse what you heard your spouse say. Then ask your spouse for confirmation. That’ll serve you both well in a couple of ways. Your spouse will know he or she has been heard and, more importantly, been understood. If it turns out you misunderstood, your spouse can clarify what was meant. Your spouse can then more easily accept your silent pondering knowing he or she has been heard and understood. It’ll also give you the chance to build into your thought process your spouse’s concerns. It’s amazing how powerful using your own mouth to say what you’ve heard can be in helping you understand, especially when you totally disagree with your spouse’s point of view. Just remember, this isn’t an opportunity to evaluate, judge, agree, or disagree with what your spouse said. Rather it’s an opportunity to express, for both of you, your understanding of your spouse’s words and, if necessary, receive clarification if he or she feels misunderstood.

Be prepared, several things may happen when you try this. 1. Instead of saying what you heard, you may find yourself saying, “I agree …” and then move directly into your response. Remember this isn’t the time to evaluate: in fact, determining whether you agree or disagree gets in the way of understanding. If you don’t say what you heard, then neither you nor your spouse will know whether you understand (you’ll both be assuming) or, for that matter, what it is you’re agreeing with. 2. You may find yourself saying, “I understand …” without actually saying what you heard. If you don’t say what you heard and seek confirmation of your understanding from your spouse, then

what exactly did you understand? Once again, instead of understanding, you’re left with your assumption. 3. You may find yourself mixing your attempt to affirm understanding with your own response. For example, you may sound like this, “I heard you say … But I think…” As soon as you find yourself talking in the first person “I” you know you’re no longer describing what you heard.

Don’t get discouraged. You can keep it as simple as repeating what your spouse says at first and as you get more practice you may feel more comfortable summarizing. Some people refer to this process as “Active Listening” or “Attentive Listening.” Keep in mind, your goal is not to be a parrot, but to achieve understanding. In fact, mere “parroting” can often be perceived as being dismissive. Listen to your spouse. And then listen to yourself as you tell your spouse what you’ve heard. Take it in. Understand it. Accept it as your spouse’s unique point of view. Build it into your consideration of the issue at hand. Then add another piece. Try thinking out loud. Put your thoughts into words. Don’t leave your spouse trying to read your mind. Speak your thoughts. Include your spouse in your thoughts – the pros and the cons. We all tend to mentally process our thoughts independently and then only share our conclusions - once again expecting our spouse to know all the thoughts, feelings, and considerations that went into those conclusions. Unwrap them. Share them as they come to you. The feeling of intimate connection your spouse will feel to you as you open yourself up to your spouse will serve your relationship in powerful and wonderful ways.

LEADERSHIP By: Dr. Robert Iadeluca

“He who would lead must first learn to follow.” Throughout my 90 years of child and adulthood I have been taught many things related to interpersonal relationships, one of the major topics being that of leadership. Everyone is either a leader or a follower at one time or another but the manner in which these responsibilities are handled has much to do with the success or failure of the projects at hand. My mother, knowing the dangers that tempt a young impressionable boy who had just skipped first grade, introduced me early to Proverbs 16:18 “Pride goeth before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall.” Not too many years later as a Patrol Leader in the Boy Scouts of America, I was introduced to further words of wisdom as I read the slogan of the Junior Leader Training Course – “He who would lead must first learn to follow.” At the age of seventeen, just one year out of high school, I was employed by Batten, Barton, Durstine & Osborn (BBDO), at that time the largest advertising agency in the world. Despite my still being wet behind the ears in the ways of the business world, Alex Osborn, the president, ignoring the obvious fact that I was on one of the bottom rungs, solicited my ideas in the field of sales through persuasion. I sent him numerous suggestions, which he acknowledged with thanks, encouraging me to submit more. Leadership exists in many forms depending on the type of organization being led. Military, governmental, profit, nonprofit – each one requires a different style of leadership. 46

Nonprofit organizations require a special type of leadership as they are, by definition, for the benefit of the community. The citizenry are the shareholders. There are currently 1.6 million nonprofit organizations in the United States. This type of organization requires leadership of a more compassionate nature. The goal is neither money, national defense nor tax collection. The goal is to strengthen the health and welfare of the general public. It requires an executive director who is simultaneously benevolent yet skilled in business methods. For the public to gain, the organization must be operated in an efficient manner. In most nonprofit organizations the executive director is responsible to a board of directors. The board sets the tone for the rest of the organization. According to Dr. Peter Drucker, one of the best known and widely influential writers on the theory of management, nonprofit organizations are becoming America’s management leaders because of the effectiveness of their boards. If, however, the board makes bad decisions, these will ripple down across the entire management chain. Sometimes the board is the last to realize that things are going wrong. The board governs. The staff, which includes the executive director, manages. A governing board looks forward at the overall picture, first re-examining its own identity and then Leadership continued on page 48

asking itself what are its expectations, its desired results and its preferred outcomes, e.g. increasing the numbers. In some boardrooms a certain social atmosphere presides where it is not customary to challenge the executive director. Forgetting or ignoring its responsibility to govern, it leaves significant decisions to the staff. If an incompetent board allows executives to keep their jobs despite poor performance, it creates an organizational environment in which there are no repercussions for bad decisions. The result is what is commonly known as a “groupthink” mentality that maintains the status quo and keeps differences of opinion from finding their way into a healthy debate. In an effort to meet goals, a board of directors often feels a pressure toward achieving uniformity. Members try to minimize conflict. Silence is viewed as agreement and illusions of unanimity appear. New ideas are couched in terms of disloyalty. Decisions are reached without critical evaluation of alternate viewpoints. A high degree of board cohesiveness, seemingly a positive condition, can give birth to the appearance of groupthink, exhibiting a loss of individual creativity, uniqueness, and independent thinking.

for increased specialized staff. A conflict arises between those who never considered anything broader and the newcomers who are oriented toward serving more people and being more business-like. The old timers see something they no longer recognize and perceive a loss of control. This is a painful period of transition at which point a subgroup often stages a coup sometimes removing new members from the board. Founders Syndrome can be very destructive both for the organization and the community it serves. Earlier preventive methods could have included a clear statement that the executive director takes direction from the board and can be replaced. A competent executive director, following the example of the board, has a sense of purpose, constantly pushing the organization in new directions. He or she is looking ever forward, planning, organizing, staffing, and leading staff and volunteers toward accomplishing a welldefined mission.

“Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” — Lord Acton

As groupthink takes over, those who have dissenting opinions and innovations may be accused of disruption and labeled as troublemakers. Ever so slowly, independent critical thinking is replaced by groupthink. As an antidote trusted people outside the group might be asked for their opinions. Outside experts might be invited to meetings. When needed change is stifled, this is often caused by what is known as Founders Syndrome, the latter stage of an impending organizational death. The long-standing board members give little consideration to inevitable change. The need for separation of the activities of the board from those of the executive director is ignored, consciously or subconsciously. Over an extended period of time new board members with specific expertise are recruited to satisfy particular needs, e.g. increased marketing. Newcomers ask how more people can be served, how things can be done better, what else can be changed, how can the organization be more business-like. The earlier members see the possibility that the organization, as it is now operated, may become something different. They are faced with change in the community and the subsequent need 48

Throughout the remainder of my life at varying time in the capacity of a leader, I have tried to emulate Alex Osborn’s example of showing respect and courtesy to people on all levels. I also learned about leadership while observing poor role models after I enlisted in the Army during World War II. Soldiers rebelled against those few with newly earned stripes who, feeling their power, shouted orders left and right. Many Second Lieutenants who had completed their three months at the Officer Candidate School and who were behind their backs called “90-day Wonders” tried unsuccessfully to establish command through the use of merely their voice. More so than being a board member, the executive director, who works closely on a daily basis with the staff, needs to be a role model among the staff and the volunteers. The alert executive director can sense the spirit among staff members and contributes whatever is necessary toward creating high morale. Implicit in the executive director’s kit of tools is the twoedged sword of power. Accompanied by a showing of respect and admiration for the staff, there is no end to what the organization can accomplish. However, one cannot give a person power over other people without tempting them to misuse it. Experience has shown that this temptation increases with Leadership continued on page 50

the amount of power granted by the board of directors. A board that meets only at rare intervals, leaving the executive director without guidance is, in effect, passing along almost absolute power. Relevant here is Lord Acton’s classic quote: “Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” A nonprofit organization is officially recognized as a corporation. It can own property, form contracts, and enter into various business dealings. Despite apparent conflict, commercial goals and nonprofit goals can be compatible. Business goals and social goals can be commingled. Money and mission can be intertwined. Producing a social good can produce revenue and vice versa. A forward looking executive director of a nonprofit organization can and should take a business-like point of view, using business goals, organization, and language. Twenty years ago management was a “dirty” word because some people took pride in being free of the taint of commercialization. Now, most nonprofit organizations have learned that without being perfectly managed they lack the discipline of the bottom line. According to Dr. Drucker the basic task of management is just two fold – marketing and innovation. Both exist in the plethora of incipient volunteers available throughout the community. Volunteers are the lifeblood of a nonprofit organization. It is important to attract and hold them. As an executive with the Boy Scouts of America from 1950 to 1963, my colleagues and I were constantly reminded that if the thousands of adult volunteer Scouters all quit that night, the following morning we would all be out of a job. It was our responsibility to recruit, train, and inspire these valuable volunteers to efficiently manage the organization they owned. Nationwide over 80 million people work as volunteers. They work an average of nearly five hours each week. Why 50

do the dedicated ones stay? Although volunteers can leave at any time, the ones who remain do so because they are given responsibility as well as challenge and the board and the executive director recognize their expertise. Once again Dr. Drucker: “What the nonprofit organization contributes to the volunteers is as important as what the volunteer contributes to the organization.” My past experience as a Board member began as a treasurer with a Chamber of Commerce when I was in my twenties up to my most recent membership with Hospice of the Rapidan plus a score of appointments in between. Currently I am a board member with the Virginia Psychological Association based in Richmond and the newly formed local nonprofit Second Chance dedicated to eliminating prison recidivism. Nonprofit organizations have special tax exempt status. They are supposed to be providing for the needs of the community. If a nonprofit organization fails to change and provide for the changing needs of the community, then there is no legal justification for that organization’s special tax status or even existence. Good intentions are no substitute for organization and leadership. A well-structured board is responsible to the community and, if necessary, for deciding whether it is time for the executive director to be replaced.

Dr. Robert Iadeluca holds a doctorate in Life-span Developmental Psychology and a state license in Clinical Psychology. He is also a volunteer with Hospice of the Rapidan. Warrenton Lifestyle

to pedal N

by Eric Robinson

othing brings back the feeling of summer like a bicycle, one of the true childhood symbols of freedom. Was it a glimmering red Schwinn single speed with a big tank and generator lights, or maybe a 10 speed, skinny-tired speedster. Whatever kind of bike you had did not matter, it was that feeling of escape, the feeling of freedom, and the ability to ride out of your Mom’s yelling range that mattered most. Summer is an excellent time to get active and cycling is an ideal choice. Cycling is one of the most enjoyable forms of fitness. Geared towards all shapes, sizes and athletic abilities cycling is attractive because a high and specific skill set isn’t necessary – just balance and the passion to pedal. It helps strengthen and shape muscles while building stamina and improving coordination as well as heart health. Making improvements to your health is always beneficial, but keep in mind the need to have fun and fresh air are just as important. There is something so satisfactory when you feel the breeze on your face while zipping around town running errands, meeting up with friends, coasting the sidewalks, hopping curbs, and cruising through the grass. Bikes are also efficient forms of transportation, especially in a beautiful town like ours. Cycling continued on page 58 June 2011

Cycling continued from page 57 Warrenton is a great place to ride with a strong community. Offering paved paths, parks, reduced speed limits, rural roads with wide scenic shoulders and the occasional dirt and gravel options make our town appealing to road, mountain and hybrid cyclists. We are horse country, which naturally makes for a picturesque bike country. Warrenton is a destination for the DC and NOVA weekend warriors to come and take a quaint ride through the region. Bikes like people come in a variety of models. Similar to running shoes bikes are built to accommodate the rider, beginning with different frame sizes, geometries and purpose. There are single speed bikes with coaster brakes (the ones you pedal backwards to stop), three and seven speed bikes, large comfy seats and upright handle bars, some with baskets, bells and even horns. Road Bikes are generally the bikes with the skinny tires, drop down handlebars and are designed for speed and distance. They are generally ridden on pavement and are much more performance oriented. Speed is gained by sacrificing comfort. These bikes come in materials like aluminum, titanium, and carbon fiber. Usually ridden for longer distances at a sustained even fast pace for a major cardiovascular workout. Mountain Bikes have wider, knobby tires, a more upright frame design, and optional suspension, which allows the bike to absorb more of the impact associated with going over obstacles. This bike is designed to go off road, over and up natural obstacles, through mud, logs, and creek crossings. A very adaptable piece of equipment that can be used for everyday rides around town or through college campuses. The Hybrid is a true “in town” bike, built with wider tires and are great for trips to the grocery store, handing pot holes and can even conquer some dirt and gravel roads. It’s the best of both when looking for something in between the Road and Mountain bike. Cycling continued on page 60 58

Cycling continued from page 58 If you were taught how to ride it’ll be quick and easy to jump back on and get reacquainted with your bike. A true beginner can learn fairly easily with these tips: 1. Take the pedals off of the bike and lower the seat so your feet touch the ground. 1. Scoot the bike by pushing your feet on the ground. Project yourself forward and coast as far as you can until you get comfortable. After a while you will have mastered the art of balancing yourself on the bike. 1. Find a slight decline and scoot down the hill a few times. Once you are able to confidently coast down the hill it’s time to add the pedals back on. 1. Place the pedals back on the bike and start coasting, when the bike loses its momentum you will naturally start pedaling. 1. Bam! You’ve just learned how to ride a bike in 5 steps! Riding can be an independent activity with a focus on fitness and stress relieving or you can embrace it’s social side. It’s a fantastic opportunity to spend time with your children, to meet new friends or just play around. If you haven’t been on a bike in a while, this summer maybe the perfect chance for you to reconnect with you inner child. Pulls yours out of the garage, dust it off and take it for a spin around the neighborhood or tear through your yard and slide by the sprinkler.

Cycling continued from page 60

Group Rides The Warrenton Cycling Center offers 3 beginner-friendly group rides each week. Each provides you with the opportunity to get back into the swing of riding your bike. Don’t have a bike – don’t worry, the cycling center has bikes to try out. Sunday Sunday evenings we’ve begun a true “town ride.” We meet around Molly’s Irish Pub and peddle down to the Warrenton Branch Greenway trail off of South 4th Street in Old Town. Monday Mondays at 8am, we meet at the Warrenton Cycling Center for a 6.5 mile road bike ride. This ride is aimed at people new to riding road bikes (the kind with skinny tires, and the drop down handle bars). We use this opportunity to teach proper road etiquette and how to safely ride in a group on a public roadway. Tuesday Tuesday evenings, we meet at Whitney State Forest and go for a 3 mile beginner social mountain bike ride. This ride is truly off-road, over logs and rocks, with stream crossings and mud. This ride is also geared toward getting people outside and enjoying themselves.

What’s New



We have finally been having the most glorious spring weather, after a bit of an odd start. The rainfall has brought out the wonderful color of the flowers, trees and grasses. With spring we also have the farm markets, don’t forget to stop and check out all the great things they offer. This year the Warrenton Farmer’s Market has a new location on Wednesdays, you will find them outside the entrance to the Bistro on the Hill at Fauquier Hospital. Buckland Farm Market has started their summer hours, so they are open seven days a week and have some fabulous new things this season. Lots of new sauces and salsas for your next cookout, plus a peanut butter fudge cream pie. Yum! We have one new business this month, Sherrie’s Stuff and Other Folksy Things has opened on South Second Street in Old Town. Take a nice walk after lunch out and see what you can find in this new shop. We also have three new businesses on the way. Chipotle Mexican Grill is preparing a new space in the Warrenton Shopping Center, on the corner next to Payless Shoes and plans to be open by the end of the month. Many people like Chipotle for the ability to have their food crafted just the way they like it and because Chipotle tries to use organic products and beef, pork and chicken that have been naturally raised. Sourcing products from local farmers, when they can, that has not been fed hormones or chemicals and from producers that are kind to the environment. Work has begun on the new Wa Wa gas and convenience store that will be built where the old Joe Jacoby car dealership was. No word yet on a completion date. The other new business is Care Pharmacy, opening in a space in the building with the Yen Cheng restaurant at Broadview and Route 17. The Warrenton Auto Glass shop has moved to the building that houses Warrenton Auto Service on Shirley Avenue. During this season of graduations, weddings, picnics and Fathers Day try to remember to shop locally and support your community; we have some great and unique items around here. Let’s face it, these days it costs too much to drive and shop elsewhere. Enjoy the rest of spring!
