or the past 21 years, I spent the majority of my waking hours in the Town of Warrenton, working, playing, volunteering, dining, shopping, and socializing. But I usually lived on the outskirts of town. Now, it’s official. Holly and I are “Townies” as we have moved inside the Town of Warrenton limits for the first time in our almost 14 years together. So far, it has been terrific. The neighbors are pleasant and welcoming, the neighborhood is engaging and diverse and the commute is, well, short enough that Holly walked to work in under half an hour (and I lost the bet). We’ve lived in two previous homes together. When we first married, I was living in a quaint farmhouse on a hilltop off of Bear Wallow Road. But with the two of us sharing a bathroom with two growing children, it was time for us to move. Realtor Charlie Ebbets recommended we buy instead of rent and found us a wonderful home with plenty of room to expand on the Opal side of Warrenton. There, we made our home for the past 11 years. Now, with twin preschoolers and our numerous business ventures, even the six mile commute caused too many time crunches (my apologies to you road warriors who get on the road at 5:30 am to head toward Northern Virginia). The big yard needed more attention than we could give and the 30 year old house was in constant need of a handyman better than me. We now have a beautiful home in the Gold Cup subdivision with close proximity to everything we need. We can walk or bike to stores, Rady Park or the Warrenton Aquatic and Recreational Facility. The 2+ mile drive to work is almost non-existent. We also live closer to the majority of our friends and family. March is the month when everyone gets to be Irish for a day so we begin this issue with a tribute to our local Irish-related merchants. Then, three more “Why I Love Warrenton” contributions appear. Our regular columns are gaining traction, including the end feature, “What’s New in Warrenton”. We enjoy all the emails, calls and letters. Please continue to send your comments to us.

Old World Traditions In New Places By Jennifer Heyns
Saint Patrick’s Day has become a verdant American holiday steeped with leprechauns, green clovers and pinches to unsuspecting non-greenwearing people. In Ireland, however, it’s a significant religious holiday. It is a widely known legend that St. Patrick drove every last snake from the Isle of Eire. More importantly, he introduced Catholicism to the Irish people which ultimately drove paganism from the island nation. Unfortunately, misfortune and famine caused more than a million Irish residents to flee for their lives in the late 1840s. Most of them set hopeful sights on the land of opportunity. Ironically, while Americans are wearing comical green hats and partaking of emerald-tinted food and beverage in an attempt to pay homage Enjoying St. Patrick’s Day 2007 to a people we fondly think of as jovial and maybe a tad mischievous, the Irish are attending church services and preparing a feast on what may be defined as the most celebrated day of their year. Kitty McCarthy Enright, co-owner of Molly’s Irish Pub, insists that Irish-Americans also enjoy celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with a bit o’ whimsy and don’t see the gaiety as a slight to their holy day at all. “This lively celebration, as we know it today,” begins Enright, “is an Irish-American tradition, started by homesick Irish emigrants who longed for their homeland and used this holy day to celebrate their country. Irish symbols such as shamrocks, harps, the tricolors (the Irish flag), and St. Patrick himself make a colorful, extravagant, sometimes garish display, reminding Irish-Americans of their roots and allowing them to honor their forefathers who courageously immigrated to America.” There are many traditions that set Ireland apart from the United States and the rest of the world, but many local business owners are trying to bridge the gap by sharing their Irish (and Scottish) heritage and traditions with the Warrenton area. Two of the most prominent Irish traditions go hand in hand: music and socializing at the pub. “The one tradition that brings all Irish traditions together is the Irish pub,” says Enright. In Ireland, she explains, pubs, short for public houses, were established to give the working class Irish a place to gather, socialize and have a pint. Formerly, the only place for such activity was at a private club where only the well-to-do could afford memberships. “The draw to the pub was not based solely on drinking,” adds Enright. “The pub was a welcoming place where people relaxed and exchanged news and gossip. While the rich belonged to their private clubs, they often enjoyed visiting pubs as well and soon all classes of people came together in pubs.” The traditional Irish pub has become more of a social hall than a drinking establishment, but of course, plenty of drinking goes on there. The pub has a relaxed atmosphere, welcoming to families, travelers, musicians and anyone interested in craic. Enright explains, “Craic, pronounced crack, translates See Traditions page 8

as having fun, good times, great amusement and conversation. In Ireland, an Irish man or woman would say, ‘The craic is mighty at Molly’s’.” In order to share their Irish heritage and bring some Old World tradition to the area, Kitty and her sister, Laurie, opened Molly’s Irish Pub on Main Street in Warrenton. They operate under the premise of Laurie (left) & Kitty (right), owners providing customers a true Irish pub experience with a menu including traditional Irish dishes and several musical performances each week. “The walls and shelves at Molly’s are covered with Irish memorabilia and collectibles - these knick-knacks tell the Irish history,” says Enright. The sisters pride themselves on providing a social atmosphere and claim that “there are no strangers at Molly’s, only friends who haven’t met yet.”
Married to the tradition of the Irish pub is music. According to Emmet Gallagher, owner of McMahon’s Irish Pub & Restaurant, one can always find a mishmash of musicians playing their instruments and singing together in a true Irish pub. These Irish “sessions” are open to anyone who wants to be a part of them - just pull up a chair and try to keep up. “I love that you can go into any pub in Ireland on a Sunday afternoon and anyone can sit down with an instrument and just play for hours, whether or not they can really play or sing,” notes Dave McCrabb, owner of The Scoti. It’s one tradition from Ireland that McCrabb says he’d love to see spread through the area and Gallagher couldn’t agree more. “We want to start the tradition of McMahon’s Irish Sessions on Sundays,” says Gallagher. Traditionally, musicians will play a guitar, bag pipes, fiddle, violin or tin whistle. He describes the pub performances as “sort of unplugged, open-mike, impromptu jam sessions to Irish music,” and they’re one of the things he misses most about the land he calls home.

Gallagher came to the United States about six years ago longing for the promises and opportunities he’d heard so much about. “I’ve never regretted it. I came here, fell in love and got married. Ireland will always be home, but America is the place to be.” Gallagher believes that he never could have achieved the success he enjoys today had he stayed in Ireland. “Everyday here I see something new, but back in Ireland nothing ever changes - it’s the same thing every day.” Gallagher is proud of the change he’s brought to
Warrenton through McMahon’s. Although the building has been standing on Route 29 since 1950, Gallagher immediately warmed to its traditional Irish feel with its slate roof, stone front and fireplace in the dining room. “When you walk in you get the feeling of being in Ireland,” he says. “We try to be as traditional as possible with the dark wood, bric-a-brac, memorabilia from the 1920s and 30s, and an Irish menu including boxty, corned beef and cabbage, Guinness beef stew and shepherd’s pie.”
Barry McMahon, Bar Manager & Andrew (Skippy) Higgins, Manager
Although he’s brought a touch of Ireland to our area, there are some things Gallagher does miss from his life as a young man in Ireland like hanging out with his boyhood friends,
reading the Irish newspapers and the chocolate. “I don’t know what it is. Maybe it’s made from different milk, but the chocolate in Ireland is just different.” Although the boyhood friends are still an ocean away, the chocolates and other items unique to the United Kingdom can be found in a treasure trove on Main Street known as The Scoti. “I put together a store where people could come to buy fine gifts from Ireland and Scotland, anything from Waterford crystal, china and pewter to knitwear and jewelry to tea, cookies and scone mix,” says McCrabb. He notes that more than 90 percent of the items in his store have been imported from Ireland and Scotland and jokes that the Cadbury candy bars and crunchies always set his Irish, Scot and English patrons’ mouths watering. McCrabb boasts a heritage of both Irish and Scot blood and relishes in the fact that he can share so much with the local area through his store and his passion for music. “I visit both Scotland and Ireland regularly to purchase items for the store, for bagpiping workshops and for vacations - they are my favorite destinations.” He says the people in Ireland and Scotland are generally “friendly, cheerful and happy” and a pleasure to keep company with, but his fondest visit was one of a more private nature. McCrabb met and had a personal bagpipe lesson from World Champion bagpiper Angus McColl. McCrabb says he occasionally has musicians
perform in The Scoti but fears he would blow customers away if he attempted to play his bagpipes inside the cozy store. Aside from music, McCrabb enjoys bringing out the competitiveness of his customers with fun events like his 2006 Soda Bread Baking Contest. The next event he foresees is definitely one the local ladies won’t want to miss. “Someday I’m going to do a Best Knees in Warrenton Contest,” declares McCrabb, who then explains that he’s referring to men… wearing kilts. Since this affair has yet to be scheduled, we’ll have to make other plans for St. Patrick’s Day. Perhaps we’ll find some mighty craic in the public houses of Old Town Warrenton. And by the way, never (ever) call it St. Patty’s Day. Paddy is short for Patrick, not Patty - so, should you choose to truncate the Patron Saint of Ireland’s day, please, for the love of Pete, call it St. Paddy’s Day.

Winner “Student” Category Why I Love Warrenton By Synteche S. Ribeiro Age 17, Grade 12, Fauquier High School
Having moved around the United States, I have flippantly called many places ‘home.’ But there is only one place that I can truly call a home: Warrenton. The flavor of its rich history permeates every inch of the town like an alluring spice, weaving the community closer together. A multitude of stories meld together the old and the new, the young and the wizened. They are Warrenton’s lifeblood. What first struck me about Warrenton, were the numerous architectural styles which could be found:
antebellum, Victorian, 40’s, etc., and right on up through the 21st century. Each building reminds passersby of the glory it has seen, silently singing its past. There is an excitement for me upon entering into the Old Gaol Museum, placing my feet where Civil War veterans once tread. To peer around the low and narrow doorframes and think, “Here is where a man once slept, hundreds of years ago.” And what brilliant thinkers the town designers were: to put the courthouse almost adjunct to the jail. I adore the many celebrations in Old Town, my favorite being Heritage Day, where history comes alive again. Men walk in Native American dress or World See Love Warrenton “Student” category page 15

Having gone to a celebration what it was, what it is, and what it is still to be. city school prior to moving to Warrenton, I had always been in classes of at least thirty students. Classes I have taken at Fauquier High School have had as few as eight students. In a class size that tiny, the students truly get to know their teacher, and have the ability to laugh and joke together as they learn. It is this friendly basis on which students can interact with their teachers which makes the school environment so much better than other schools I have attended. And the high school itself is a testament to history, to civil rights movements of the 60’s. But the thing I love most about this town is its flexibility.

I moved to Warrenton from DuBois, Pennsylvania, where I attended college almost two years ago. Immediately, I fell in love with the increase in temperature. Pennsylvania residents say there are four seasons in their state: almost winter, winter, still winter, and construction. Until I came to Warrenton, it had been over three years since I had worn a pair of shorts. That was my first impression. Word nerd that I am, I loved that my townhouse was a mere two miles from Borders bookstore, and that inside they had plump chairs on the second floor where you could overlook the store and sip chai tea and read all day. That was my second impression. After I had been in Warrenton for no more than a week, it began to dawn on me that this town felt like no other I had lived in before.

passing freight trucks, but they also took me to a nearby gas station to warm up and get something to eat. Then, Dave and Kim waited with me until my friend arrived. Both were from Warrenton. A few weeks ago, I accidentally left my purse in a shopping cart at Giant shopping center. Everything was inside—my brand new phone, wallet, passport—and after checking with the store’s Lost and Found, I really thought that I would never see it again. Fortunately, a man named Donny found my purse, and was able to get in touch with me by calling my friends listed on my phone. Anyone who has ever lost something equally valuable understands the immeasurable relief to have it returned unharmed. Of course, Donny lives in Warrenton. The people of Warrenton are compassionate, educated, well-traveled, and have a vast array of life experiences that serve to diversify and enlighten the community. It is not by sheer happenstance that these individuals have chosen to remain, or to settle down in Warrenton. It is not mere coincidence that Dave, Kim, and Donny all call Warrenton home. I love Warrenton for its milder climate, its cozy bookstore, even the safety I feel as I walk through my neighborhood. But what I really love Warrenton for is the people. They are my lasting impression.

When I walk around my neighborhood, down Main Street in Old Town, or back and forth across the Greenway, people smile and wave at me—whether they know me or not. Having lived in a major metropolis where the fast-paced denizens either ignore you or push you off the crowded metro when you’re already late for Elizabethan English class, I have learned that polite acknowledgement of others is not a trivial matter. Fellow Warrentonians seem to know this instinctively. They hold doors open for each other when entering or exiting buildings, and give up their seats for the elderly or child-laden couple when waiting in a busy restaurant. I have seen a foodshopper with a full basket pay for the person behind them who was carrying a carton of milk and Fruity Pebbles, saying “Breakfast’s on me” with a wink. I have witnessed several people cleaning up trash that wasn’t even theirs from public sidewalks and gutters. Last winter, my car broke down along Route 522 because of a blown spark plug.

Growing Up In Warrenton By Monique Addison
I am happy to say I’ve lived in Warrenton all of my life. I grew up in a fine community just outside of town limits. Therefore affording me the opportunity to go to school here as well. In my growing up I got to see quite a few patterns of growth i the county and in the town limits. Some of the fun times included having the honor of knowing my neighbor who produced the song “Sweet Georgia Brown” and singing at the White House. As a kid I played with his grandson who I watched build go-carts and later went on to race cars. When it would snow, we would to into town and gather the older neighbors’ groceries. Then we would go onto main street to Mr. Allison’s grocery and get candy, a piece or two. I also attended Sunday school in the town of Warrenton, again we would walk home after stopping by the ice cream store on Main Street. This made the three miles seem much shorter to endure. In attending my High School we formed a high school band, we didn’t have any fancy uniform, we made what we had work for us – unlike the fancy uniforms that schools have today, it was a wonderful learning experience for me. We, the students, worked to make
money to purchase the uniform as the kids have today. I went on to marry the man that broke the color barrier within the Warrenton Police Department. During our years of marriage we cleared off the land for the Eva Walker Park, I also asked the owner (Dr. Gerber) of the property for the land – which he later deeded to the Town of Warrenton. Continuing through my journey, I worked at the local Safeway store in Warrenton, the same babies that I weighed on the scales in my store some thirty years later are all grown up. All in all it was fun, because at one point I feel as though I knew everyone that lived in the wonderful town of Warrenton.
Communcation - My Lifeblood” Dr. Robert B. Iadeluca, Clinical Psychologist
When I was five years old, my mother, a prolific writer of poetry and short stories, gave me the line, “Up in the air so high” and asked for a rhyme. When I came back with “flies the butterfly”, I not only added to her pride and mine, but unknowingly started a lifetime love affair with the subject of communication. At that age, of course, I wasn’t even acquainted with the word, “communication”, much less the broad field it defines. All I knew was that, like my friends, I had hobbies, games and studies which formed themselves into the pattern of my learning. There seemed at the time to be no relationships among my various interests, but as I look back I realize that more than anything else I was intrigued with the numerous methods by which bits of information are transmitted from here to there. Poetry had been the means of passing thoughts in an aesthetic way from one person’s brain to another. At the age of six, a more mathematic process of communication was discovered when my father, a World War I Signal Corps veteran, taught me the Morse Code. He found me a ready pupil in this hobby, and the skill remained with me in adulthood. I devoured books and did much writing on a prose as well as poetry level. With all the emotion a six year old can muster, I stood before the church congregation pouring out the 23rd Psalm. Then, when I was seven, a new world opened. My parents bought me a violin. The next five years were musically fulfilling ones, running the gamut of neighborhood recitals of Ave Maria, Poet and Peasant in the school orchestra, an audition of Humoresque before the famous conductor, Walter Damrosch, and participation in a series of radio programs. An elevator gate crushed my left forefinger when I was twelve, putting my violin playing out of commission for over a year, but my love of music caused me to take up the trumpet, which is fingered by the right hand. During this entire period, I was also soprano soloist in the church choir. Then came grammar school graduation and my selection as class poet. A pattern had already begun. There were all modes of communication; music, writing of poems and prose, public speaking, telegraphy. They all conveyed thoughts or feelings, each in its own way passing along bits of wanted or needed information. One of my first moves upon entering the Boy Scouts was to learn the semaphore and wigwag codes. Some of my best fun consisted of standing on a high hill as I sent an “urgent” message and watched the almost immediate reply. In the evenings, I spent hours re-reading Edgar Allen Poe’s The Gold Bug and studying in detail that portion of it which explained how to decipher a secret code. Those were language times. Evenings and weekends were for the language for the deaf, the Indian Sign Language, trail signs and the ever-present signal flags. During the day my new high school studies featured Latin. It was a language, and because of my underlying interest in communication, I enjoyed it. The teen years passed along. I raised pigeons, not just for flying, but because of a gradually developing interest in genetics. I crossed low-flying Rollers with high-flying Tipplers to see if I could get high-flying Rollers. A friend introduced me to multi-colored Cavies, a breed of long-haired guinea pigs, and I cross-mated every possible combination to achieve the most outlandish colors. I joined a Bee Club. Throughout this period, I used my new hobby of photography to take pictures of Scout and Club activities.
My Pledge for 2008 To continue conducting my practice in a manner consistent with the usual attributes expected of a professional, specifically by: 1. Constantly viewing my doctoral degree as an ongoing opportunity for service. 2. Continually updating my education about the most recent Psychological principles, as well as mastering additional techniques and skills. 3. Faithfully meeting the rigorous standards set forth by the license to practice psychology issued to me by the Commonwealth of Virginia. 4. Placing above personal interest and financial reward the desire to serve my fellow human being. 5. Keeping abreast of developments in the Psychological field adding, where possible, my own professional knowledge and understanding. 6. Working closely, individually and within organizations, with my fellow professionals. 7. Considering my profession not a job, but a lifetime career, devoting my major interest to its demands. 8. Following to the letter the code of ethics as set down by the American Psychological Association and other professional organizations with which I am associated.

THE galloping grape
Communication continued from page 23
As Latin ended in school, French began. It is a language I thoroughly enjoyed and speak to this day. My graduate essay was entitled “On the Desirability of Being Oneself”, known these days as doing your own thing, and I was launched into a world that was to include many careers of communication. It is important to emphasize that I still didn’t know this. We continue to ask high school and younger students what they are going to do in later life. With rare exceptions, it is a useless question. After graduation, I knew only that I needed a job and was still too close to the activities of the previous ten years to recognize the relationships. College, at that moment, was unattainable. Memerized by the communicative play of light and shadow, whether across a human body or a snowy landscape, I began to spend most of my time in photographic studios and darkrooms. My plan was to make professional photography my life’s career. Within a year, however, I was offered a position in an advertising agency. This could not have been a more fortuitous move. Seeing it momentarily as just a job, I soon found myself in a paradise of communication. All about me were artists, copywriters, radio producers, salesmen, contact personnel, media specialists, all experts in the art of creating messages and placing them where they would be received and understood. I was surrounded by
communication. Experiencing the unbeatable education of onthe-job training, I continued to learn further communication skills until interrupted by wartime military service. The time in the advertising agency had caused me to look at myself objectively and to better realize the principles of communication as related to my own interests. To my utter amazement, therefore, I found Army events repeating civilian experiences. As soon as my trumpet background was discovered, the Army appointed me first a member of an Army band, and then a company bugler. A rise through the levels of communication finally culminated in my being promoted to First Sergeant, the unlovable “top-kick”, who communicates in a most unprintable but most functional language such as civilian life had never taught. I was in the European Theater of Operations, and when battle lulls occurred, my use of French opened doors to French families that were closed to other less communication-minded GI’s. A basic German grammar lying by the side of the road helped me to speak sufficient German to interpret for prisoners of war. After V-E Day, Russians in displaced person camps went out of their way to instruct friendly Americans in their language. This was a stimulating world to me, and by this time I realized I wanted to study for a degree in Psychology, to learn more about the hidden processes of the brain, that wonderful organ that intercepts stimuli of all kinds, interprets the message and passes it in its most suitable form. See Communication page 26
Communication continued from page 25
The GI Bill made this possible. A new international future was already on the horizon, new customs, new jobs, new educational methods. A need for improved communication was evident. I continued throughout my undergraduate studies to do the things I found pleasant, such as taking three years of Spanish, but by now I was consciously aware that my interests were mingled with communication in many forms. During those college years, I spent off-hours attending dancing classes (oh, the exquisite combination of communication simultaneously with music and girls!), and in later years, I was to take courses in Russian and Arabic. Employers have varied since that date, but my career, efforts and goals have always been in this field. As Director of Public Relations with a Long Island school district, I was concerned with internal and external district relations and efficient methods of communication. My responsibility with the New York City Board of Education was to create or improve communication channels among the thirty city districts, as they implemented the state’s Urban Education Program. I was a Long Island newspaper staff writer concentrating on sociological problems caused by lack of communication. Later, while with the City University of New York, I researched and analyzed studies aimed at open circuit television as a means of efficient instruction. My responsibility as Assistant Director of Public Relations for the New York State Education Department was as broad as I chose to make it. Because the public owns and operates the state’s educational system, it was my responsibility to learn what progress was being made and to tell of each step, simply, completely and understandably. After twenty-five years in the business world, at the age of 52, I became a full-time university student, seven years later receiving my Ph.D. in Psychology. My dissertation, no longer
to my surprise, was on “The Ability of Adults to Understand”. My love of communication had again announced itself. Shortly after marching in cap and gown, I went to Washington, DC to become a Research Psychologist with the Federal Government. Statistics, not my strongest tool, nevertheless forced me to see communication from a different angle. Retiring at age 69, I found that I missed that certain connection, obtained a license as a Clinical Psychologist, and at age 72, I opened a private practice, where I communicate directly and closely with my patients on a daily basis. Just as my boyhood activities had been fun-filled because of the many interests which involve communication, so have my life’s careers been fun. I bless my parents, teachers and friends who encouraged me and placed communication opportunities in my path. For me, communication is life. I force each sense receptor to ab sorb to the extent of its ability. On second thought, “force” is really the wrong word. More accurately, I allow the world to enter and enjoy receiving each message. The world enters during times of relaxation, as well as the work hours. I enjoy listening to music by the hour. Bird calls in the back garden fascinate me. Fire sirens still give me a shiver, sunsets constantly thrill me, the right perfume starts a pleasant train of thought, and I vibrate to the feel of sand sifting through my fingers. I also communicate back to the world. Like most people who want to let others know their thoughts and emotions, I sing, talk, write, laugh, sigh, nudge, grimace, wink, tap my foot and probably communicate my attitudes in more ways than I am consciously aware. Sending and receiving messages is an endless activity. Applying the word “specialist”, therefore, to a person

who “specializes” in the proper use of communication is a misnomer. He or she is a generalist in the purest sense of the term. Communication cuts across all lines of occupation, avocation, and life “in general”. At its basic level, communication begins with the transmission of information from one molecule to another and from one cell to another. Later in the developmental scale, messages are transmitted in many directions; from brain to organ, tissue to brain, brain to brain. Throughout this process various sensory circuits are affected through such media as photography, television, poetry, signal flags, books, typewriting, singing, dancing, foreign languages, selling and art. Communication in some form has undoubtedly existed since the creation of life. Yet, paradoxically, the age of communication is just starting. Certainly, the pace of communication is accelerating. Many people who heretofore communicated mainly on a subconscious level are becoming more aware of it. Many methods of communicating, which were nonexistent only a generation ago, are becoming part of daily life. Paramount, at the moment, is the Internet. Obviously, I obtained a computer and use it regularly. Many yet unborn means of messagesending are about to break upon the public scene; telepathy, clairvoyance, psychokinesis. Mortal bodies may never reach the distant galaxies, but through highly developed means of communication, our lives may mingle with those of presently unknown civilizations. Our businesses and bureaucracies are slowly choking in memos, but conscious control of brain rhythms may lead to improved human and departmental understandings. As the years pass, I continue to find varied interests, but as I dig into these subjects to uncover the core of what makes them tick, I continually meet an old face: Communication — my hobby, my work, my lifetime friend.

Staying Healthy – Living Long – Are You Sure You Know How to Do It? You want to be healthy. We all do. To be healthy, you need reliable health information but with the rapid advancements in modern medicine, information seems to change almost weekly. Finding health information in this high tech world is easy. A quick Internet search for “heart health” yields almost 14 million hits. My goodness, where to begin! What you need isn’t more information but rather a better way to separate the wheat from the chaff, the real facts from the sales pitches and false claims. Are berries and fish oil really good for your heart? What does “moderate exercise” really mean? Does this pain mean I need a joint replacement or are there other options? Fauquier Hospital offers many convenient, face to face opportunities throughout the year to get up to the minute information about the latest science on topics of interest to you and your family. One of the Hospital’s premier offerings begins March 13. Mini-Medical School, so named because the format allows for more than a quick overview, is a sixsession series featuring six respected
physicians, each providing an in-depth discussion on a topic in their field. This year, the focus is on wellness and prevention because, obviously, prevention is better than waiting until you need a cure. Session topics include maintaining a healthy heart, lungs and bones, as well as nutrition and alternative medicine. And because good health begins early, there is even a session on keeping your kids safe, fit and happy. The presenters are physicians from the fields of cardiology, pulmonary medicine, orthopedic surgery, family and internal medicine, and pediatrics. The Mini-Medical School series runs six consecutive Thursdays, beginning March 13 from 7:00- 9:30 p.m. There is a nominal fee and registration is required. Call 540-316-3588 for complete details and to register.

Historic Old Town Warrenton Happenings By Amy Gable
The Partnership for Warrenton Foundation saw many changes and considerable growth in 2007. The Blue Ridge Hardware and Surles buildings are being remodeled for first floor retail space and second and third floor office space. The Fairfax building is undergoing a facelift and major interior renovations with a goal of upscale housing on the upper floors and retail spaces on the street. You may have noticed that the small private parking area at Main and 5th Streets is part of a new Main Street expansion, allowing for 5 new retail spaces.

The Warrenton Business Directory Is Now Online Visit our website at www. warrentonlifestyle.com and select Local Business Directory and begin searching. Our printed version generated many phone calls and emails. While we received many thanks over publishing this free directory, we did encounter several upset businesses that were unintentionally excluded. The reason this happened is that not all businesses and organizations are required to have a Town business license and it is the licensed business list that we used to start the directory. A few businesses had incorrect phone numbers and we have corrected them in the online version. Typically, the phone numbers of record were those that were listed on the license application and several people put their home number. We encourage all businesses in the Town of Warrenton to contact us with changes, corrections and additions to their listing so that we can keep the online version up-todate. We intend to produce another printed directory in July. Businesses, if you have not submitted your 25 search words to us, now is the time to do so. Email Shannon@ piedmontpress.com or call us at 347-4466 and ask for Shannon or Tony. Special thanks to our co-sponsor SonaBank for building the back end of the online directory and hosting it for us.

Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s New In Warrenton by Amy Griffin Warrenton businesses have been moving and shaking again this month. Just opened is the Diva Salon, next to Yen Chengs restaurant, to do your hair, nails and other services. On the other side of Yen Chengs is the Zenzhu Gift Shop and it is filled with a vast assortment of gifts for your choosing. Warrenton Auto Service is opening at 131 Broadview Ave with a Geico Express Service Center for your convenience. Sandlot Academy has opened on Old Meetze Road in a 10,000 square foot space for indoor baseball and softball training with batting cages, individual lessons, group lessons and team training. Buckland Farmers Market will be coming to Warrenton in the spring, and they are starting construction on a new 6000 square foot building. They will be located on Lee Highway with the entrance opposite Riley Road in New Baltimore and plan to open in mid to late April. We may also see some construction for a new Fauquier Bank; a two story building with four drive-thru lanes. They have applied to do this on property at the corner of Lee Highway and Fletcher Drive. Leeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Barber Shop on Main Street now has a new owner. The Locker Room Sports Bar decided to change their image to one that is more family oriented and has made some changes to accomplish this. They closed their doors for one week to expand their game room, change the menu and change the name. They reopened as The Wing Fanatic with more different wing sauces to choose from than I have ever seen.
