Warm March wishes to everyone. We did survive the snowiest February on record and I’m glad to put it behind us. How many of you saw the Extreme Makeover show led by Warrenton’s Burch Builders Group? We watched it and I assure you that there was not a dry eye anywhere in sight. What moving stories! Our hats are off to all the local people and firms that contributed but especially to the Fishing School and the Tripp Johnson family whose homes were rebuilt because they give every day to their communities. I’m sure the episode will win an Emmy. Marion Maggiolo and Horse Country are celebrating 40 years in Warrenton so we asked writer George Rowand to share some of her magic with us. The uniqueness of Marion’s stores coupled with her dazzling smile make Horse Country a very Warrenton place. Even if you don’t ride, it is worth a visit. The home furnishings and personal accessories are fine products. 2010 is the year when Warrenton will come together and build the Fun For All playground at the Warrenton Aquatic Recreational Facility. As the name suggests, this playground will be constructed for all children focusing on the accessibility for children with disabilities. Designed to help with physical, social and psychological development, the goal is to create a park where all children and their families can come together and have fun! Please read Krysta Norman’s article and find out how you can help. We hope you like our Taste of Warrenton Restaurant Guide. Many of you commented on the number and variety of places we have in the area. Hope you went out and found something new that you can call a favorite. We enjoy all the emails, calls and letters. Please continue to send your comments to us. Best,

Tony Tedeschi, Publisher

On Education

Wakefield School By Peter Quinn, Headmaster

Teaching Students to Seek the Challenge, Make a Difference, and Live an Extraordinary Life This month, Wakefield School in The Plains is featured as the sixth in a series of guest columns from local educators. The purpose is to introduce the public to the distinct features of each school and describe their curriculum, philosophy and atmosphere. We believe that parents know what system will work best for each individual child.


When you think of a “classical education” do you imagine a dusty teacher in a tweed jacket lecturing his or her students on the finer points of different Roman emperors, or the differences between moods of verbs (what, verbs have moods?)? Do you think students who choose a classical education become expert at things like philosophy and grammar, but not things that are useful for doing anything, well, useful? Think again. How useful do you think it would be to study architecture for a year in order to draft designs for a house? What about working out the best role for Ethanol in the economy and environment? Want to figure out how to “over-clock” your computer?

Are you driven to define the common themes in the poetry of Walt Whitman and the lyrics of Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen? All of these have been recent topics of year-long studies at Wakefield in the Upper School (grades 9-12). Not too dusty, huh? At Wakefield, the classical model encourages both precision and creativity. People often ask me why they should choose a school so noted for its classical approach in an age of rapid change. They say that a classical education is fine for people who are free to spend their time thinking, but if you actually have to do anything you’d better study a skill, obtain some specific training, and Wakefield Continued on page 10 Warrenton Lifestyle

this challenge call for an education that teaches observation, hypothesis, evaluation, and articulation? Again and again during the fourteen-year Wakefield journey, students are asked to engage in this process and come up with their own answers to the questions their teachers pose. Finding educated answers to complex questions is the centerpiece of classical education. In the Middle School (grades 6-8), students face this challenge in the various projects they complete in literature, composition, science, and history. In the first grade they practice probability with M&Ms – predicting the likelihood of getting a bag with only certain color candies.

Wakefield Continued from page 8 prepare to make yourself marketable. But if you talk to people who are leading companies, forming their own companies, or creating new ways of solving the challenges our society faces, they will tell you this: the most valuable skill and knowledge set is the ability to understand new conditions in the workplace/economy/society, create and test informed solutions to the challenges those conditions present, and articulate the best solution in a convincing manner. This is what a good, contemporary classical education provides. That’s what Wakefield fifth graders do in their science class when they have to design a complex machine to perform a household function using as integral parts all six simple machines – and it has to work. Each November these machines are displayed for the whole school, and what a collection of labor-saving devices they are! Along the way, the students completed that process of observation, hypothesis, articulation, and proof. Does that classical process matter anymore? Consider the often-cited challenge of education in the 21st century: “preparing people for jobs that don’t exist in industries that have not been created to solve problems that aren’t problems yet.” Doesn’t 10

Wakefield we prepare our students to flourish in college in just that way, with the result that, according to former UVA admissions dean Jack Blackburn, Wakefield students maintain the second-highest GPA of all undergraduate students enrolled at UVA. At the same time, there is more to a classical education than academic classes. Activities that train the brain and the body are essential, and athletics and the performing arts train both mind and muscle. Both of them also present a challenge distinct from the individual challenge of academics. How challenging it is to assume a role on stage, or to learn a new sport, and what great benefits accrue from those challenges for each student and the whole community! Wakefield’s specialinterest clubs, student publications, leadership and community service opportunities provide the chance to build something that represents a group effort for the benefit of the whole community. In every case, students learn the risks and rewards of leadership, and by repeated experience, how to lead. A classical education is a dialogue between teachers and students in which both knowledge and diverse intellectual skills are taught and Wakefield Continued on page 12

A classical, liberal arts education broadens your focus rather than narrowing it. For example, a biology degree does not force you to be a doctor, an economics degree does not limit you to being a stock broker, a math degree does not condemn you to a banking career, and a history degree does not limit your future to the law. In each case, those programs provide both the skills and the knowledge to observe critically, analyze accurately, and articulate theories effectively in that area of expertise. An attitude of intellectual discovery and adventure is what makes for a fruitful career. At Warrenton Lifestyle

It is an education that trains students to think for themselves, to look for proof rather than accept assumptions, and to work through a problem in a methodical, creative way to make a contribution of their own. Wakefield Continued from page 10 practiced continually. That’s exactly how Wakefield students often describe their education, as a conversation on a wide range of topics over several years. It is an education that trains students to think for themselves, to look for proof rather than accept assumptions, and to work through a problem in a methodical, creative way to make a contribution of their own. It is the education for a future in which discovery will continue to be the main theme. Finally, because a classical education is about the search for truth, in whatever field you study, it is also about how to use the truth you discover. Our mission states that we “provide students with the fundamental knowledge and the critical thinking skills to distinguish that which is true from that which is not, and the strength of character to use that wisdom.” That strength of character involves the classical virtues of courage, prudence, temperance, and justice. At Wakefield we have adapted these elements of Plato’s 12

Republic as the cardinal virtues of the school, and they form the foundation of our community expectations. At the heart of a classical education is observation, hypothesis, and empirical testing – the roots of the scientific method. Those who think such an education does not have “real world” applications need to understand that it is organically based in the real world, and moves from observed fact to general theory. That process helped humans identify physical laws such as gravity, and develop philosophical truths such as justice and economic theories like capitalism. Is that kind of knowledge and that kind of critical thinking no longer valuable? In an age of information overload, we think it is all the more valuable, giving our students the tools to help sift through and separate information from useful knowledge. Our full mission and philosophy are available on our website, but the short form is this: we teach students to be

capable, ethical, articulate citizens who will seek the challenge, make a difference, and live an extraordinary life…each in his or her own way. Wakefield School is an independent school offering a classical education to 464 students in pre-school through twelfth grade. Founded in 1972 in Rappahannock County, Wakefield School moved to The Plains in 1996, and in June 2009 graduated its 30th class. Peter Quinn has been headmaster at Wakefield School since July 1996. Previously he taught and coached at Hackley School (Tarrytown, NY), Peddie School (Hightstown, NJ), and served as Director of Admissions at Peddie. He is a graduate of Washington & Lee University (B.A.) and the University of Virginia (M.A.). He started his career in 1978, teaching at Wakefield when it was in Rappahannock County. With fellow Wakefield teacher John Hood, he teaches Ethics to tenth graders. He and his wife Maryanne have three children who are students at Wakefield. Warrenton Lifestyle

Bring on Spring!

Old Town Happenings


have to ask myself how in the world a month with the fewest days could have room for so much snow? If you’re like me, you have shoveled until you feel like your arms are falling off.

However, the snow has not stopped Main Street merchants from opening and offering great “snow” day deals. The restaurants are offering wonderful specials, and most say it’s nice just to be out and about in Old Town. The point-to-point races wo;; be coming up (if weather allows). Be sure to shop Old Town for the essential tailgating foods, flowers, clothing, and specialty items. Stop by the local restaurants and pubs after a cold day at the races. Molly’s Irish Pub and The Scoti are certainly looking forward to celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. Stop in and join them! On March 21st, Molly’s Pub is hosting the Wearin’ of the Green 5-K to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project. If you are not planning to run, stop by and cheer everyone across the finish line. Old Town Warrenton is looking forward to Spring. We’re looking forward to our bi-annual Sidewalk Sale on April 17th and we have already started planning for the year. Don’t forget that First Fridays will begin in May followed by the Father’s Day Car show in June, the Children’s July 4th Parade and more! For more information on these events and The Partnership for Warrenton Foundation, please visit our website at www.partnershipforwarrenton.org. If you are interested in helping or participating in any of these events, please call the Partnership office at (540)349-8606. When you are replenishing your cupboards from the storm, remember the local food banks and animal shelters. Let the compassion to help others felt during the snow storms continue. The Partnership for Warrenton is a non-profit organization dedicated to fostering the economic and aesthetic development of Old Town Warrenton through a comprehensive process of economic revitalization that seeks to protect, enhance and promote its architectural and historical heritage.

Literary Review

What Should I Do With the Rest of My Life? It is a common refrain. Be it the loss of a job at middle age or an impending retirement, many of us find ourselves asking “What Should I Do with the Rest of My Life?”


Frankel takes his subject seriously and he should. He has a similar story. Frankel’s career began as a psychiatric aide before becoming a prize winning investigative reporter with the USA Today and a senior staff writer and an editor for People magazine. He was coauthor of the 2001 bestselling World War II: History’s Greatest Conflict in Pictures. Frankel received, at age 53, an MFA from Sarah Lawrence College and has since published poems in the Los Angeles Review, Great River Review, and Lumina. 16 16

n today’s world, the question “What should I do with my life?” only scratches the surface. Now, more and more people, from baby boomers retiring from their “first act” to people in their forties and fifties forced to reconsider their careers in this gloomy economy, are finding themselves wondering how to find new stimulation and meaningful work over a lifetime. Bringing together a diverse array of stories, veteran journalist Bruce Frankel brings to life a mesmerizing series of profiles of men and women who discovered a new calling, success, or purpose later in life. Brimming with inspiration and humanity, What Should I Do With the Rest of My Life?: True Stories of Finding Success, Passion, and New Meaning in the Second Half of Life (Avery, March 4, 2010, $26.00) celebrates activists, artists, entrepreneurs, filmmakers, and others who found extraordinary ways to experience true fulfillment in the second half of life. Bruce Frankel is not a neurologist. Nor is he a gerontologist or social scientist. He is a baby boomer, who like many others, began questioning the second half of his life just as he was beginning it. A fateful lunch led him to investigate those people that did what many want to do, live their dreams and succeed in doing the improbable and the significant. Bruce Frankel delivers intimate narratives that prove that it is never too late to sign a new lease on life. In his book, readers will meet

a former consultant who began a microfinance program in Africa; a woman who was voted California Woman of the Year at age 73 for revitalizing her poverty-stricken neighborhood and went on to become the oldest national park ranger at age 86; a longtime contact-lens grinder who has chiseled twelve hundred stone heads on a property now known as the “Easter Island of the Hudson”; a liberated Jewish grandmother who opens an erotic art museum; a failed writer who publishes three wellreceived, books after turning 94 and many others who proved that age is a spark-not a barrier. In all, thirteen inspiring people/couples across the nation are profiled. Full of spirit, this book shows that anything is possible in any stage of life. What makes this book special is that there is a chapter devoted to our own Dr. Robert (Robby) Iadeluca, a regular columnist in the Warrenton Lifestyle Magazine and, more importantly, an area psychologist that serves so many in our community every week. Broke and unemployed in his early fifties, Dr. Iadeluca decided to go back to college and was accepted at SUNY Albany, later transferring to Syracuse University. He graduated in December 1979 at age 59 with a Ph.D. in Psychology. “During that time, I was the oldest full time student on the campus. In addition to my being a Psych student at Huntington Hall, I also held an Assistantship with the Life Continued on page 18 Warrenton Lifestyle

At the age of 89, Dr. Robby (he has makes from its care of my son Roland many affectionate nicknames in our at the age of 53.” He overcame several community) is currently working a tragedies during his lifetime but losing a 40-hour week in his Warrenton office child was his most difficult. Dr. Robby’s dear friend, Nancy as a Clinical Psychologist. A licensed Walbridge O’Connell, Community clinical psychologist, Dr. Iadeluca sees Relations Director at Hospice of the patients for chronic pain management, substance abuse, clinical depression, Rapidan, likes to boast about him to anxiety, bipolar disorder and relationship others and with good reason. “Dr. Robert Iadeluca is not only a dear friend problems. Dr. Iadeluca has a long history of but a professional of the highest caliber. community service including organizing We first met at a dinner in 2004 and we the Warrenton Toastmasters Club, talked non-stop for the entire evening. president of CADRE, a public relations I was there for him as his son was dying volunteer for the Fauquier Community and my involvement with Hospice of the Theatre, and a mental health counselor Rapidan helped in many ways.

It is astounding the many lives he has touched and helped.” Dr. Robby’s interest in people drives him each day. His motivation is clearly seen in this excerpt from Frankel’s chapter on him: For all of his compassion for others, he admits to feeling impatient when he hears an able-bodied person use the excuse of age to resign from doing what he says he wished he could. Too often, defeat and laziness creep into a person’s belief system, he says. “They say, ‘Oh well, I can’t do that’ or ‘Pretty soon I’m going to be sixty-five and then I won’t be able to do very much anyway.’ So they don’t bother to take care of Dr. Robert Iadeluca sees patients in his office, themselves because there’s located up on Hospital Hill five days per week. 18

no point in it. They’re going to rot away anyway, they think. Whereas me, I’m going to love to be one hundred. How do I know this? Barring an unfortunate accident, I know this because I keep going until all of a sudden it is nine o’clock at night and I have to get ready for bed. I don’t have time for this garbage of ‘I’m too old.’” Frankel is a talented writer. He knows when to keep his words succinct when establishing an important point. He can also launch into a flowery, detailed description when the topic is worthy. Reading his description of Loretta Thayer’s homemade pies in the chapter devoted to this remarkable woman, I was taken to a place far away, from long ago, where the taste of a favorite dish can bring back so many memories. I could hear in Bruce Frankel’s voice how much he enjoyed this project. He told me, “The experience of spending time with the people in the book has been a life-altering gift to me. If the book never earned a dime, I would be richer for it. I remain in close touch with most of them and they continue to inspire me on a daily basis, with the way they approach their missions as well as the humanity with which they conduct their lives. They altered my idea of life’s timeline, as I say in the introduction, and affirmed that success is not measured by one’s bank account. Each of them was creative in the best sense; doing or making something of meaning that fulfilled him or her and benefited others, putting good into the world that would not have existed without their efforts.” Frankel describes his book, “The stories are not simply examples of successful aging, they are inspirational in the truest sense as they defy prejudice and misconceptions about age and pursue unlikely passions with courage, creativity and discipline.” By feeding their passions, each of the characters in What Should I Do With the Rest of My Life? found a new lease on life. As Frankel says in the book, “Age does not of itself limit or enable us. The choice is ours.” Warrenton Lifestyle

Hospice of the Rapidan and Fauquier Health to Host a National Teleconference on “Living with Grief: Cancer and End-of-Life Care” For 17 years the Hospice Foundation of America has presented a nationally recognized teleconference addressing issues related to grief and bereavement to more than 125,000 people in 2,000 communities through satellite broadcast and web cast. This year’s conference, “Living with Grief: Cancer and End-of-Life Care” will be broadcast Wednesday, March 24th, from 1:30pm to 4:00pm. Hospice of the Rapidan and Fauquier Health will jointly host the live broadcast of this year’s teleconference, which is available for free to area health care professionals and interested residents. The conference may be viewed at Fauquier Health, 500 Hospital Drive, Warrenton, in the Sycamore Room A. This annual program has been instrumental in educating health care professionals and families on issues affecting end-of-life care. The program provides an opportunity for a wide variety of professionals – including doctors, nurses, funeral directors,

psychologists, educators, social workers and grief counselors – to share ideas and obtain continuing education credits. A panel of distinguished physicians, ethicists, educators and hospice experts will focus on “Living with Grief: Cancer and End-of-Life Care.” The program will address care options related to cancer diagnoses as well as loss and grief reactions for patients, families and professional caregivers. The teleconference will also examine psychosocial aspects of cancer, pain management, and ethical issues related to the disease. Continuing education credits are available for many professionals, including most nurses, social workers, case managers, certified nursing assistants, home health aides, clergy, psychologists, funeral directors and art therapists. Those interested in receiving continuing education credit must also attend a half hour live session immediately following the broadcast. There is a continuing education credit fee of $25 for

on-line processing. Admission is free but reservations are highly recommended as the number of seats is limited. For reservations or additional information please contact Rachel Nicholson of Hospice of the Rapidan at 540.825.4840 or rnicholson@hotr.org.

Celebrating 40 Fantastic Years Serving Hunt Country By George Rowand Marion Maggiolo was having trouble finding a job, so she found a career instead. “My father said, ‘Until you get a job, why don’t you go down and work at the store?’” Maggiolo remembered. Now the owner of Horse Country in Warrenton is close to celebrating her fourth decade in business. “I never dreamed that I would be here 40 years later,” she said, “but I rode and showed horses in 4-H, so I’ve been around this my whole life.” Running any kind of business for

40 years is a remarkable achievement, especially in retail, and Maggiolo credits a wide variety of sources for her success. “The customers did it,” she began. “People would introduce me to new customers, to new suppliers, and, of course, the people I’ve had working here have been the best.”

Second Location

Originally located on the Warrenton bypass, Horse Country moved into its current spot on Alexandria Pike 20 years ago. Maggiolo said that the move improved her business.

“I’m pleased to be in Old Town,” she said. “When we were on the bypass, we got people who were driving past on the road, but here, we are a destination. People make plans to come in the store. And I like to interact with the town. I like to send visitors to the restaurants, shops and art galleries on Main Street.” She clearly enjoys her clientele. “The people that walk in the front door are so interesting,” she stated. “They are from all over the world. “The customers let me know what they want,” she continued. “Many of my customers grew up wearing beautiful riding jackets and breeches. When good riding clothes were not available any more, I went to England and found suitable cloths and makers that would produce small orders for me. I caught a wave of people who still wanted those traditional goods.” A walk through the store reveals pretty much all things horse related, from tack to jackets to jewelry to bumper stickers supporting foxhunting and the equestrian lifestyle.

Cataloging the story

“In 1985, we started with a catalog, and it took off,” Maggiolo said. “We started with drawings done by local people, and then went to black-andwhite photos, and before you knew it, it was all color. And now we’ve gone digital.” Horse Country produces two catalogs a year. Picking up a catalog, she continued. “All the catalogs mean something to me. I want it to be a very personal story. I think that the photography is fabulous. We design it, shoot it, print it and mail it. So many decisions.” The latest 80-page catalog carries a motto for the year, just like the ones that preceded it. This one speaks to the times: “Forward.” “I started to hear a bit of optimism from my customers last summer,” Maggiolo said. As she has done before, she has adapted to the reigning economic conditions. “Last year I created a lot of products to suit the economic times,” she said. “We designed a group of gifts under $50 and 24

“My business wouldn’t work just anywhere in the U.S.,” Maggiolo said. “This is horse country ... foxhunting, showing, racing. That lifestyle is intense here. I think people appreciate what I do. I sell all over the country.” Probably best known for the hunting attire the shop carries, Maggiolo said, Horse Country aims to sell to people who want a certain tradition, and who want to have a choice. She said that she is actively involved in the whole process. “I find the cloth and line up the factory. I do the designs and send it off,” she explained. “I have many patterns. I cut everything the old way, which is a classic coat with more pockets and custom details. For women, it takes a whole lot more tailoring to make a traditional jacket. In addition, I always wanted to have inventory. We have six makers for women’s jackets and five makers for men’s jackets.

an on-line presence. We have a Web site, horsecountrylife.com, we’re doing e-blasts, and we’re going to do a blog.” A fan of old jewelry, Maggiolo has people who help her stock the store with interesting baubles. “I love old jewelry,” she stated. “All year, I have people looking for me, and they call to say, ‘I saw this in San Francisco and thought you’d like it,’ and they send a photo, and I say, ‘Get it. I love it.’ “It’s like the Dublin Bracelet,” she continued. “I’m in Ireland, and I bought this one special antique piece. It took a few years to find the right company to reproduce it and I’m only doing 50 pieces.” Maggiolo said that many of the men’s ties she designs are made in America but the silk is woven in Como, Italy. She also carries woolen surcingle belts made in England with hand-stitched bridle leather ends and keepers. Her hand touches everything in the The catalogs aren’t just for shopping, they are works store from tins of mints with of art filled with wonderful sketches and photography. scenes done by local artists to Afghans and silk scarves with a laugh. “And then UPS started in Virginia equestrian themes.

Horse Country Continued from page 24 “At the old store, whenever I wanted to sell some merchandise, I would put it out front with some hay bales, and every time the traffic light changed, I’d get four or five customers pulling into the lot. Now I’ve opened Leftovers on Fifth Street in Old Town as a clearance store. That is one of the best things I’ve done. It’s only open two days a week, and it allows me to get more room in here for new inventory.” She said that family, friends and members of the local business community have been supportive of her along the way. Her brothers and sisters helped move seasonal inventory up and down steps, to and from auctions and storage facilities since the beginning. In 1990, a friend suggested Maggiolo start a tabloid-style newspaper for ongoing marketing. The 20-year-old In & Around Horse Country is published six times a year and goes out to 35,000 readers in North America. Other friends

Service oriented

The Horse Country brand is so well recognized in the area that homeowners sometimes come in and ask Maggiolo to decorate their houses. And businesses looking to reward their customers often turn to the shop for help. “I did a huge order for a customer,” she said. “We designed the gifts and packaging, hand wrote the enclosed notes … everything.” She recently had a hand in a 434

page coffee table book, A Centennial View, published by the Master of Fox Hounds Association, about foxhunting in North America today. “I was chairman of the committee that got the writers, the photographers, the project manager,” she said. “I’d never done anything like that, and I just wanted to.” Forty years on, Maggiolo said that she wouldn’t want to change anything about her career. “I’ve been working 6 days a week since I’ve been open,” she recalled. “I’d rather be here than anywhere else. I’m surrounded by wonderful people and beautiful things.” And she is glad to be in Warrenton. “I thank Mom and Dad every day for coming here,” she said.

3rd A nn Fun fo ual r All Day a t the WARF

Fun For All Playground Inches Closer to Ground Breaking by Krysta Norman


ohn Schlenker and Linda Reid understand the value of “playtime.” Dedicated parents and Fauquier County locals, the two developed a distinctive project for our community in July 2007 called the Claude Moore Fun for All Playground (the Claude Moore Foundation was a major donor). As the name suggests, this playground will be constructed for all children focusing on accessibility for children with disabilities. Designed to help with physical, social and psychological development, the goal is to create a park where all children and their families can come together and have fun! The pair, supported by the Town of Warrenton, contacted a not-for-profit organization called the Warrenton Fields Association (WFA) that has been responsible for the development and maintenance of the fields adjacent to the Warrenton Aquatics and Recreation Facility (WARF). The WFA agreed to allow the Fun For All Playground to collect funds for the playground

under the umbrella of WFA’s 501c3 organization. WFA and the Town of Warrenton’s Mayor George Fitch were instrumental in ensuring that the fields would be constructed with accessibility as a priority. Since the completion of the fields, the WFA has now been devoting its time to raising awareness and funding for a 8,000+ square foot play space at the WARF for the children of Fauquier County. Traditional playgrounds allow only limited mobility for those with disabilities. “We want to have a playground for everyone,” said Reid who has been working with All Recreation of Virginia, Inc. to incorporate innovative ideas, materials, and configurations to encourage a fun and challenging environment for children. The area will have a rubberized surface that will allow for those with wheeled equipment and comfort for unexpected slips and falls. The equipment will be made of bright colors to aid the visually impaired and Fun for All Continued on page 32

Fun for All Continued from page 30 will be textured to stimulate sensory development. Bells, whistles and chimes will be installed to teach the relationship between cause and effect. There will also be quiet nooks and crannies for those children who need to escape sensory overload. A barrier free ramp system will be integrated to allow children in wheelchairs to reach the highest platforms as well as extra railings and hand holds. Swings and spring toys will have hand holds and back supports to assist and monkey bars will be lowered for easier reach. These simple modifications to the traditional playground will bring much needed benefits to the children. In addition, there will be challenging equipment for ALL children, like the play web and rock wall. The Fun for All Playground will give the children of Fauquier a place to play, learn and grow. “Children of all abilities develop more when challenged in social situations,” Reid stated. “They learn about teamwork, fun and sportsmanship, as well as socialization and sharing”. Schlenker added. “If typical children and children with special needs learn to play together as small children then they won’t even notice a difference when they are older, which teaches acceptance.” Most would assume this playground is only for children…. but is it? ”It’s not just for kids,” said Schlenker. “This playground will make it easier for disabled parents, grandparents and caretakers to watch their kids and

participate in the fun!” Unfortunately, a Boundless playground is costly, due to the specialized features required to meet the strict guidelines set by the federal government in the Americans with Disabilities Act. The total project is estimated to cost $300,000. So far the WFA has been successful in raising $207,500 through charitable donations from the community. The Claude Moore

Foundation, Town of Warrenton, Knights of Columbus, Fauquier Hospital, and the Warrenton Jaycee’s are just a few of the generous local businesses that have contributed. The project is still in need of roughly another $100,000 in order to begin the groundbreaking that is tentatively planned for spring. The construction would take an estimated eight to ten weeks to complete which would have the Fun for All Playground open for public use in the fall. Schlenker is encouraging businesses to make donations and would like to see more families and individuals volunteer their time in order to reach their goal. “We would love for the community

to volunteer to do extra projects,” Schlenker said, with visions of the playground surrounded by a masonry wall, picnic area, and landscaped gardens. On April 3, the 3rd Annual Fun for All Day hosted at the WARF will kick off with the Fun Run/Walk/Wheel 5k followed by Easter egg hunts. The hope is to show the community the purpose of the organization and the necessity of a Boundless playground. Says Schlenker, “Our primary goal for the Fun for All Day is to get the word out about the playground effort and what it means to the area, “as well to provide a lot of family fun! Our secondary goal is to raise funds for the playground – we are hoping for $10,000$15,000 from this event.” The two previous events boasted a family fun run with a celebratory t-shirt for participants, indoor swimming, live entertainment and, of course, food! Details of this year’s event are still in progress. For updated information, check out the WFA website at www. funforallplayground.com. The WFA is excited to see the people of the community and surrounding areas enjoying themselves as well as realizing the importance of this event. Schlenker sees the WARF and surrounding property as the “crown jewel of Warrenton” with its accessible ball fields, indoor pools, skate park and hockey rink. The Claude Moore Fun for All Playground seems as if it would be an excellent addition to this package.

WANT TO GET INVOLVED? Fun For All Day - April 3: Volunteer to help • Provide live entertainment • Food • Tents • Crafts/Projects Donate: Encourage your employer or other business/organization to make a charitable donation Make a donation yourself • Donate materials for the extra projects surrounding the playground All donations to WFA are tax deductible.

Silent Chaos These clouds of people surround me. People whose voices are choked out by the chaotic overtones of our own lives. A glance to my right brings into view a girl in a mini skirt with tattoos up her arms. In an instant rush of focused thought, I wonder… Is she too breaking apart? Does she believe in hope? Perhaps her life seems great. Maybe these souls that we judge by one glance are entirely different than what they seem. Or maybe she stands there waiting for someone to run up to her and reach past whatever she might be struggling with. But this frenzied world knows nothing of hope and silence and peace. I step outside and stare at a soundless canopy of fate. A noiseless loss of life. Because everybody walked by and everybody forgot. What if we demonstrate to them how to look up. Remind them when you fall you remember what the ground feels like, but if you stay face down in the dirt, you won’t realize that stars shine. This blinding yet unheard of chaos covers the world, and I can’t solve it. But maybe if I lead by example. Maybe if I stop trying to climb out of this hole. Maybe if I let go and realize that I can’t do anything on my own. Perhaps if I feel the chains of those who encase my thoughts; these people, these ones, who live in these pits of pain. Pain inflicted because nobody cared to stop. Nobody bothered to talk. Everybody simply whispered quietly to themselves that someone else would help. Nobody bothered to move. You have this chance. Will you take it? We can do so much; we have the chance to change this. But will you move when you see a chance? Will you ignore this as soon as you read it? Will you let it change you?

Bargaining for our Lives A new book by Jennifer Heyns

There are currently about 47 million Americans without health insurance. What’s surprising, however, is that many of these people are doing so by choice, my family included. What we’ve learned since ditching our HMO approximately eight years ago is how much we took for granted when an insurance company dictated the care we received and helped to foot the bill. Since opting for the self-pay program (medical lingo for uninsured) we’ve become aware of how much healthcare really costs, which services are truly necessary and which aren’t, how to find qualified professionals who are in sync with our values, how to negotiate costs and so much more. Bargaining for Our Lives is a timely book that could help every American learn more about our healthcare system. It’s an inside look at what living without health insurance is truly like. What may shock you is what a positive experience it can be. For those without health insurance (and for those who may soon find themselves in this situation due to the economy),

the book is a helping hand for learning how to find the best quality, affordable care out there. For those with health insurance it’s a chance to learn more Book cover art Laura Symanski of Natsuko Graphic Design about the system; it’s benefits and pitfalls, and to become more aware about the reality of healthcare costs. The book is written in a light, hopefully somewhat entertaining, tone and shares many of my family’s experiences in dealing with our care on our own as well as explaining the lessons we learned along the way. It’s currently available as a paperback or Kindle download at Amazon.com and will hopefully be at your favorite local bookstore this month. For more information about Jennifer’s new book, you can email her at jeheyns@gmail.com or visit www.JenniferHeyns.com.

Molly’s 5-K Run and Walk to Benefit Wounded Warrior Project

isters Kitty and Laurie Enright opened Molly’s Irish Pub in Warrenton, Virginia in 2001. One of the core values at Molly’s is giving back to those less fortunate. Even during the toughest economic times they believe through hard work and perseverance everyone can give in some way.

On Sunday March 21, 2010 Molly’s Irish Pub will host its fifth Wearing Of the Green 5-K run/walk. 100% of race proceeds will go to the Wounded Warrior Project. More than 30,000 of our troops have been injured in recent conflicts, many of them suffering traumatic brain injuries, amputation, and severe burns. The mission of the Wounded Warrior Project is to honor, empower and assist those men and women of our armed forces who have been severely injured during conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan and other locations around the world. Its purpose is to raise awareness and enlist the public’s aid for the special needs of our wounded warriors as well as to help these heroes aid and assist each other. Laurie has served in the Air National Guard for 24 years. She is a Lieutenant Colonel flying C130s at her unit, the 193rd Special Operations Wing. During her recent deployment to Afghanistan she was able to volunteer at the base hospital, “Seeing first hand the physical and emotional trauma of our severely injured military men and women is something I will never forget. These young people are genuine heros - they give so much to our country, and we all need to give back to them”.

This winter is carrying on way too long and snowy for Virginia. I know everyone is ready for spring and some warmer temperatures. We have a lot going on in the business world and maybe that will give us that feeling of something fresh and new until all this snow melts and the crocus pop up. To renew your body and spirit, the White Flower Wellness Center has opened on Waterloo Street and is ready to help you achieve peace within yourself. They offer massages, herbal therapy, reflexology, yoga and wellness groups for women. Accounting Solutions of Warrenton has also opened their new office in the Re/Max building on Holiday Court and will be there for all your tax needs as that ever important date approaches. We had a of business that closed recently. Pomegranates has closed it’s store and is going to an online wholesale presence and will also be doing Trade, Trunk & Home shows. Broadview Auto Service recently lost their lease on Broadview Avenue and has moved to the Opal area of Warrenton. At the new location they will be adding tire sales and the sales and service of trailers. The Fauquier Bank has moved their View Tree branch from Broadview Avenue to their new “green” building on the corner of Lee Highway and Fletcher Drive and The Rappahannock Bank has moved their Piedmont Branch, near the Taco Bell, into the Broadview Avenue building that The Fauquier Bank vacated. And the last relocation that I am aware of is Taylor Boyz which has moved to Rogues Rd, near Crockett Park. They still have the same great parts and service, so stop by and check out their new place. I have been alerted by a reader that there is a sign near the Harris Teeter and Chevy Chase Bank about a Lone Star Steakhouse coming soon. Of course, when I went to confirm this there was too much snow to see it. There is some new construction under way and I am sure that that is where it will be going. Please remember to drop me an email if you see anything going on in town I can use all the help I can get.
