Warrenton Lifestyle

From The Publisher

Living a Full Life Hello Warrentonians, I hope this issue arrives with warming weather and the dawning of Spring. Sometimes an issue of our publication comes together that truly embraces the spirit of our community. This month’s Warrenton Lifestyle displays the scope of people, events and places we have here as well as any previous edition. For starters, we bring the Warrenton Hunt to our pages as they celebrate 125 years of almost untouched tradition. Foxhunting runs deep in our community; its culture, economics and land preservation have a positive impact in our region. George Rowand visits with Marianne Clyde, a woman of remarkable talents and jawdropping experiences. Marianne is a best known as one of Warrenton’s finest therapists but her path here is one you’ll want to read. From Cambodia to Sierra Leone to Afghanistan, she has helped some of the world’s most desperate people through their excessive hardships. I think you will not only like Marianne Clyde but have a deep admiration for her as well. Max Harway turns 100 years old this month and he looks great. I saw him recently at Iron Bridge dining with his family. He still calls every once in awhile with an idea for a story or a comment on an article. His good friend and fellow historian, John Toler, writes about Max’s storied career in government that ended some 35 years ago when he began his next journey in life as a community activist, professor, historian and civic leader. There is plenty more to discover inside. Back to Basics with Barbara Weldon, Food for Thought by Kim Forsten, Life & Living It from Dr. Iadeluca, Local Wine from Bob Grouge and so much more! We enjoy all the emails, calls and letters. Please continue to send your comments to us.

horizons and diplomas

experiencing & exploring life through higher education by Dr. Robert Iadeluca

I submit that the primary reason for obtaining a Bachelors degree should be to broaden ones horizons. With the exception of entering the military, no other life experience is more capable of exposing the neophyte high school graduate to a world different from his own. Often imbued with the belief that most people are similar to him and his friends, to his shock he learns that the world is composed of people of every possible philosophy, some of them diametrically opposed to his. On the day of my high school graduation, we marched down the aisle of the auditorium singing our traditional song “Out in the Cold Cold World,” implying that we were about to look for a job. This made sense in 1937 when only a minimum of the population obtained a Bachelors degree and having a Masters or a Doctorate was a rarity. It was assumed that the “cold” world was the world of work. Scientific and technological advances since that era require obtaining a higher education and as summer approaches many high school seniors (plus their parents) are acutely aware of that fact. Hardly a week passes in my office without some teenager stating that being a college graduate is in his intended future. It is then my custom to ask him “why” and the answers vary - to get a job, to make good money, because my brother/sister has a college degree, because my parents want me to get one. 6

Four years of college study, in my opinion, has less to do with what courses are taken than with the interaction with professors and other students. He learns, for example, that his instructors, while wanting him to pass, are willing to let him fail. He is, after all, an adult. They will not send notes home saying: “Johnny is not doing as well as he is able.” They will assign chapters but will not follow up to see if he has read them. As a matter of fact, they will not be upset if he often misses class. There is no attendance teacher. He learns that, being an adult away from home, he can choose his friends without his family’s knowledge and may gain or lose thereby. With no one else to lean on to help make decisions, he can choose a roommate who is serious about obtaining a degree or can choose a partygoer. Regardless of the discipline in which the undergraduate degree is earned, the broadening of his horizons is, in my opinion, the primary benefit. A

graduate degree is another story. Now we are talking about an intended career. On the wall of my office is a framed copy of my PhD that I earned at Syracuse University and which to my pleasure, has on numerous occasions been an inspiration to young patients aiming at a doctorate in their own particular field of interest. Holding a doctorate means that one has gained mastery of a subject. It involves studying in depth, as opposed to the more broad coverage usually required working towards a Bachelors. A PhD is a research degree. You are a scientist no matter what the discipline. The term “philosophy” included in the phrase “Doctor of Philosophy” is derived from the Greek word meaning “love of wisdom.” One may receive a PhD in physics, French, Old English literature, psychology (as is mine), economics or whatever discipline turns one on. A high school graduate who likes to investigate, interpret, explore, contemplate, or in one way or another search for deep understanding might be an excellent candidate for a doctorate. As may be surmised, the majority of people do not fit into this category, hence the need for caution in determining whether one should pursue a PhD. Some of the answers I’ve received are: I’ll be respected - it’s a job guarantee - impress family and friends - easier than entering the workforce. Surprise! Surprise!

becomes harder and harder. Holding a doctorate is merely a door to an opportunity. What counts is what is done after the PhD is obtained. And it is most certainly not a guarantee. We have all heard of taxi drivers with PhDs. However, you or your son or daughter may have the very qualities that may lead to a doctorate. The requisite trait above everything else is self-motivation the ability to work toward a goal without daily encouragement. All other traits are to no avail without the first one. Then comes creativity. Do you like solving problems? Can you look at old facts in a new way? Does that creativity you had as a small child remain within you? In your high school courses were you near the top? If you found your studies to be a waste of time or a joke, a doctorate is probably not for you. Keep in mind that your fellow graduate level students would be some of the brightest in the world. Nevertheless, if your IQ is not that high, do you have the necessary competitiveness? Expect to spend anywhere from four to eight years of very hard work. In my own case going for my Bachelor of Arts to my PhD took me seven years. Throughout that time I saw a movie only three times. Macaroni and cheese was a regular dinner staple. Obtaining a doctorate in Life Span Developmental Psychology is rigorous and my choice was between spending more money and time on other interests or meeting my chosen goal. Which brings me to the next required trait - maturity - the ability to set ones own goals and determine ones daily schedule. Not one day in seven

years passed without attending some class, spending time in the library or laboratory or staying at home burying my face in some book. On my desk was a placard featuring the Earth as a globe and below it the phrase: “It’s me against the world - which I consider a fairly even match.” Reverting to that wonderful childhood trait of intense curiosity, do you like to find out how things work? Do you feel compelled to understand the world around you? You are in luck. This is what researchers do. And finally, being adaptable. Studying for a doctorate is not “course work” as undergraduates know it. You are looking for the answers to questions which no one else has ever asked. You will be spending much time exploring on your own. If I have dissuaded anyone from taking this route, I am pleased. One the other hand if I have encouraged anyone to go for a doctorate, I am also pleased. You know which category you fit. Now the financial aspect. Don’t even consider simultaneous external employment. Typically a doctoral candidate receives a tuition waiver and obtains some form of annual stipend. A fellowship is beneficial. I held an assistantship which meant I spend at least 20 hours a week working at the Syracuse Gerontology Center. There may also be opportunities to earn money by teaching undergraduate and occasional graduate courses in relevant subjects. There are also student loans. In the process of studying for the doctorate one may, in some programs, be awarded a Masters degree en route.

This usually requires the completion of a certain amount of coursework and a masters thesis or field exam. When the total number of credits required past the Bachelors has been earned (usually 90), it is time to write a dissertation, a lengthy formal document with the purpose being to indicate that the candidate has made substantial and original contribution to human knowledge. It includes a comprehensive literature review, an outline of methodology employed, and several chapters of scientific, social, historical, philosophical, or literary analysis. The student must then orally “defend” his dissertation before his supervisory committee. Once the committee has decided that a contribution has been made and once that important diploma is in hand, then he/she can use the term “doctor.” High School students graduating this June will be going out into the “cold cold” world where the odds for occupational success will be against them unless they are enrolled or preparing to enroll in a program of higher education. Yes, there are successful business executives with only a high school education and PhDs who are unemployed but they are an extreme rarity. More scientific and technological advances were made in the first ten years of this century than in the entire 20th Century. There is no indication that it will slow down. It is time to broaden ones horizons.

Dr. Iadeluca holds a Ph.D. in Lifespan Developmental Psychology and has a practice in Clinical Psychology on Hospital Hill in Warrenton, Virginia.

The Hunt


Living Through Time – Warrenton Hunt’s 125th Anniversary by John J. Head

The leap forward from 1887, when the Hunt formed, to a lifestyle in 1936 when the Warrenton Hunt office telephone number was a simple three digits, 318, was likely felt as seamlessly as our own transition to a life of cell phones and text messages.

and Rick Laimbeer. Still residing in the community are former Masters; Feroline Higginson, Loki van Roijen, Harcourt Lees, Will Allison, Frank Laimbeer and Al Griffin, Jr.

Warrenton’s founding MFH, an abbreviation for the honor, was James K. Maddux (1853-1930). Masters, in addition to “You live through time, that little piece of time that is yours…” their leadership role in riding and hunt organizational duties, writes the American novelist Robert Penn Warren when serve as the interface between the Hunt and the community. commenting on how we realize our place in history. When the founders of the Hunt in 1887 appointed Jim And yet, remarkably, the Virginia pastime of Warrenton’s Maddux, an expert horseman and a notable hound man, and citizens riding to hounds has largely stayed unchanged for a respected judge of both, their; hopes for leadership were the last 125 years.

Mr. Maddux served as Master for 33 years and for care of their favorite horses and ready them for a day of cross 23 of those years, he also hunted the foxhounds, described in country riding. Hunting trails through cattle farms, hardwood hunt lore as carrying the horn. In most American huntfields forests and along creeks and rivers are still negotiated by folks, today a small copper or silver instrument is blown by the young and old, from your county. For them foxhunting is a huntsman with a variety of tones to communicate hunting commitment to be a sportsman in the same vein as the angler, signals to the hound pack. Early Colonial huntsmen favored deer hunter, skier, sailor or outdoorsman. a cow horn, which was slung over the shoulder on a leather strap and frequently decorated with carving and inscription. Traditions in American fox hunting run deeply through our community. The time-honored clothing often is what first Owning property in hunt country is another measure of catches the attention of people coming into contact with the tradition and helps to ensure open space for riding.

Ashland, Wildcat, Bellvue, Airlie and Hopefield all conjure up hunt stories and were themselves once the locations of Meets, the term for the place where the Hunt assembles on a given day, and to which it returns at days end. Meets in 2013 are still carded, that is listed by date on postcards printed monthly, called Fixture Cards, for Warrenton area home sites, Granville, Oakwood, Cannonball Gate, Clovelly, Broadaxe, Dondoric, Blythwood and The View, among other farms. Development, the breaking up of family estates and numerous new roads each has played a part in changing the profile of hunt country in the course of 125 years. Horses, hounds and foxes need open space in which to play out their respective roles in the sport, and to that end the hunt and its member families have long been active in preserving open space in Fauquier and Northern Culpeper counties. Hunt territory in the region is mapped out by a governing organization, and is recorded as being exclusively for the use of Warrenton, Casanova, Old Dominion or Rappahannock hunts to name several of the clubs in proximity. Meets of two or more clubs, known as Joint-Meets, are held from time to time, but other than by invitation, no club hunts land within anothers’ territory, and all hunting, is always with landowners’ permission. Maintaining excellent Landowner relations is an important 125-year old tradition for the Warrenton Hunt. The Masters and the Hunt’s elected Board throughout their terms of service work diligently to see that crops and cattle are undisturbed, and fences, gates, and the jumps, which the Hunt builds, are well maintained. Each fall, at the start of the new Hunt season, the Hunt hosts a Landowners Party. Where in an outdoor family style setting the community comes together, as it has since Mr. Maddux’s time, and people from all walks of life meet with their neighbors and re-establish friendships. Just before twilight the huntsman and his staff parade hounds to the edge of the crowd where the time and dedication he has shown to their training is put to the test. Despite all the good food over at the party and as all dogs know, lots of people to jump up on and kiss, foxhounds being working dogs at heart, like Seeing Eye and police dogs, follow their obedience training staying in a tight pack behind their huntsman.

Fixture Card 1932 Warrenton foxhounds are cared for and maintained following age-old sporting traditions by their current huntsman, Matt Van der Woude. Unique in his profession Matt is a college graduate with an American love of the sport. And like two of the legendary huntsmen before him, Jim Atkins who served the Hunt from 1993 to 2005 and Dick Bywaters, a member of the Huntsman Room, a hall-of-fame at Morven Park, who hunted the pack for 34 Seasons from 1939 to 1973, Matt is dedicated to the care of his hounds. Within the Warrenton hound pack on any given hunting day there are American, English and Crossbred type hounds of both sexes, ranging from 1 to 8 years in age. The hounds selected for the hunt day work together, in a pack following their own instincts while they observe the findings of their fellows. Each attempts to be first with the discovery of a native fox in its natural habitat. Assisting the Warrenton huntsman in 2013 to maintain direction with hounds a professional whipper-in, the wellrespected horsewoman, Clydetta Poe Talbot.

Warrenton Lifestyle

As tradition warrants, hounds hunt silently until the moment when the scent of a fox recently in the vicinity is found, then, often one by one, they speak, this unison of voices, each adding agreement to the other is termed music, and as it rises and falls, so rise and fall the hearts of the horses and riders, until at last, following traditions once again, the hounds are carried by their noses along a line of fox scent. This is the time to run, all the animals in the panoply begin a chase cross-country, led by the fox, who seems to knows right where a convenient hollow log, stack of hay bales or a hole, along a creek bank or in a hayfield, is located for makeshift use as a speedy escape. Traditionally the disappearance of the fox into his den is termed, gone to ground. Beginning in September, when the Season opens, right through until its close at the end of March, a morning spent on the back of a horse is something Warrenton children have always looked forward to. While no longer riding today, Warrenton’s Hope Porter, Jocelyn Sladen, Sally Tufts, Barry Hamilton and Mel Bearns, when prompted to talk about riding at a young age, quickly slip back into foxhunts on ponies they name with affection. Imagine riding your pony from Hopefield, near Arlie, across the western lying fields to Loretta, now on busy route 17, to meet your friend, so you could hack together to the Meet, as Hope and her friend Jane did as youngsters, or setting out to hunt on your pony along with your parents and grandfather, Julian Keith, a former MFH, on a hunting day that was also the occasion of his 80th birthday, as Barry and Mel did as boys on January 9, 1939. Early in the 1950s Warrenton’s Master Russ Arundel hunted regularly with his children Jocey, as Mrs. Carhart wrote at the time in her hunt diary, and Nick. As pleasant reminders of those days and of their later riding careers numerous photographs grace the tables and line the walls of the homes today of Jocelyn Sladen and Peggy Arundel, wife of the late Nick Arundel. Continuing the family tradition today, Lili Alexander the Master’s granddaughter, a schoolteacher and superb horsewoman, is regularly found in the front of the Field on one of her bold horses on most Saturdays and school holidays. warrenton hunt continued on page 14

And for today’s pony riders, experiences still are being formed, as when Reilly Hogan, just nine years old with colorful ribbons flying at the ends of her double-pigtails, takes her pony Hanky-Panky up-and-over the Hunt’s old stone walls that have been cleared by generations of children before her.

Warrenton’s hunt map in addition to many childrens books. Hunting inspired Bill Emory and Francis Greene to write, and some of their wit and wisdom found its way to the local papers. While for Douglas Lees, Max Tufts, Pooch McClanahan and Marshall Hawkins the Warrenton Hunt inspired photography.

In her day, the President’s daughter, Miss Helen Taft hunted with Warrenton as reported in The Washington Post on April 3, 1912. Sporting art has always been a valued tradition in hunting communities, and here in Warrenton, in 1908 the American painter Richard Newton, Jr. arrived on the New York train to create two oil portraits of the first Warrenton Master, James K. Maddux, Riding Shining Light and his wife, Mrs. Mae Muurling Maddux Riding Grey Cap. The former canvas is now in the collection of the Museum of Hounds and Hunting in Leesburg for the enjoyment of generations of foxhunters, thanks to the generosity of the late Mrs. William Howland and her son Billy of Land Ho Farm. Following Newton’s sojourn were artists Franklin B. Voss who painted here in 1922, 1929 and 1949, and Michael Lyne who arrived from England in the 1950’s and Wesley Dennis who closed his New York studio to work here and enjoy a life riding to the Warrenton hounds. Voss’s Warrenton work includes four oil paintings, Mr. and Mrs. Robert C. Winmill Riding Oliver and Surf, 1922; Master Amory S. Carhart Riding Queen Anne, and companion portrait, Mrs. Carhart Riding Blaze Away, both from 1929, and later a commissioned landscape Mares and Foals at North Wales painted in 1949 for Mr. and Mrs. Walter Chrysler, Jr. Lyne portrayed Russ Arundel in the 50’s foxhunting on Wildcat Mountain and made gouache sketches of hounds, and, Dennis illustrated

From the time of George Washington the military has a long history of participating in foxhunting. Among numerous Warrenton Subscribers, General George Patton rode with Warrenton while stationed at Fort Myer before the War and later leased Warrenton territory when forming the Cobbler Hunt. Prior to establishing what would become the Old Dominion Hounds, Captain Sterling Larrabee served as a Master of Warrenton in the early 20’s, and, during the early 1950’s while Commandant of the Marine Corps, General Lemuel C. Shepard, Jr. hunted regularly with Warrenton until a fall forced him to give up the sport in 1963. In his hunt diary General Shepard recalled his first hunts in 1948 saying in part, “It was while I was stationed at Quantico that in a conversation with young Bill Emory at a VMI dinner in Richmond, I expressed desire to hunt with Warrenton Hounds, one of the oldest and well known packs in America. Soon thereafter, I received an invitation from Amory S. Carhart, MFH of the Warrenton Hunt …” Invitations to hunt are still issued in much the same way by the Warrenton Masters today. For those without horses or unable to still enjoy being on one, the Hunt offers a Social Subscription. Among the traditions at the Warrenton Hunt, unchanged since 1887, is a keen riding group of families living in the community.

John J. Head is a Warrenton Hunt Subscriber, and author of With Brush and Bridle - Richard Newton, Jr. - Artist and Equestrian. He served as the Director of the Museum of Hounds and Hunting in Leesburg, Va. from 1999 to 2005 and holds degrees in fine arts from Pennsylvania State University and Rochester Institute of Technology ( RIT). He has taught art and photography at RIT, University of Georgia, Long Island University and Washington College. John and his wife Patti reside in Washington, VA. 14

Beautiful evocative paintings by a charming man Ion Carchelan’s career spans nearly twenty years: he is now considered one of Moldova’s premiere painters. Carchelan began his formal arts education in childhood, at the Children’s Art School in Nisporeni, Moldova. He studied painting continuously through universities, and thereafter toured Europe to supplement his academic training with direct observation of the work of painters.

Painting is for Ion a solitary pursuit and deeply personal; he chooses not to be part of the larger art establishment, preferring instead to live and work in the small village in which he was born. Carchelan paints a full day, every day, usually starting in the field and finishing in his studio. The objective subjects of Carchelan’s watercolors are the people, places and things that he sees around him — harvest scenes, distant churches, farm yards, the ordinary activies of daily life in rural Moldova. His paintings draw us in and settle us into a particular place, in a particular moment and mood. Time spent with Carchelan is always something of a meditation.

Fauquier Community Food Bank and Thrift Store A late model Volvo pulls up to the Thrift Store warehouse. Manager Sharon Ames emerges, smiling, from the building, and asks, “what did you bring me today?’ As Sharon and her employees help the woman unload boxes of books, pictures, various glass pieces and an old chair, the woman gushes, “I am so happy you are here and can take this junk. I think what you are doing is just great.” Well people say, one person’s junk is another’s treasure, and indeed, the nonprofit Fauquier Community Food Bank and Thrift Store (FCFBTS) is truly able to turn unwanted or no-longer-needed items into cash which helps support the Food Bank. Open for 8 months under the new FCFBTS Board, the Thrift Store is a thriving partner to the Food Bank. With receipts in December totaling more than, $18,000.00, Ms. Ames and her team are dedicated to raising money to fight hunger in Fauquier County. Yet while underwriting the Food Bank is the main focus, the Thrift Store does so much more. The store offers low-cost used clothing and shoes for infants to adults. In the back there is a “$5/bag” room where customers can fill a shopping bag with clothing and other items. “I don’t have a job, and have 3 kids,” a recent visitor (who asked not be identified) said, “without the bag, I wouldn’t have no (sic) clothes for my kids.” “We try to keep things affordable,” stated Ms. Ames, “People are really hurting, so we aim to offer good things at very reasonable prices.”

The Thrift Store offers clothing, shoes, household items and furniture. The items sold help support the Fauquier Food Bank, they work to fight hungrer in the county. 16

The Thrift Store played a major part in providing 77 backpacks stuffed with supplies for kids going back to school this year. FCFBTS Board Vice President Tom Baccei, who coordinated the backpack give-away, praised the Thrift Store’s staff and their commitment to the community. “When I presented the backpack idea to Sharon, she was all for it,” states Baccei. “I believe that the reason we got so many

donations is because people know Sharon and her commitment to this community.” The Thrift Store also organized a backto-school clothing give-away for families with school age children, including several headed off to college. 137 families stuffed bags with clothing and shoes, some with tags still attached. A 15-year-old young lady exclaimed through tears and smiles, that she couldn’t believe she was getting name-brand clothes. “I never had anything with a label before,” she shared. “If you don’t wear labels, you don’t fit in. Now I’ll fit in.” “Sharon does great things for the community, but the Thrift Store is also a fun place to shop,” declared a recent customer. The store displays a remarkable collection of furniture, housewares, decorative items, sporting goods or just about anything someone in search of a unique piece of furniture or a decent set of golf clubs could wish for. When asked about her clientele, Ms. Ames indicated that she has antique collectors, interior designers, artists, electronics buffs, paperback readers, and all manner of people walk through the doors. Deals abound, but you don’t have to push aside mounds of stuff to find them. The Thrift Store employees and volunteers take great pride in displaying items so people can easily find what they are looking for and examine an object up close. The staff is always ready to help customers and can provide a wealth of information about most anything in the shop. The Thrift Store is located at 249 Shirley Avenue in Warrenton. Open MondayFriday (9:00am-5:00pm), and Saturday (9:00am-2:00pm). The Store accepts donations Tuesday-Friday (9:00am3:00pm) and Saturday (9:00-1:00). FCFBTS is a 501(c) (3) organization, and your donation may be tax deductible (receipts available at time of drop-off). The Thrift Store also has gift certificates available (great gifts for the bargain shopper). Warrenton Lifestyle

But I don’t like healthy foods.

Oh, YES YOU DO! Read on…

Let’s be honest; fast food, fat-free, low fat, highly processed, bagged and boxed foods are getting a lot of bad press these days and for good reason. They are made up of chemicals for flavoring and for a long shelf life, which has been proven to be unhealthy. Additionally, research is telling us these foods may be a large contributor to our obesity epidemic. Due to their highly processed nature, their overall nutrient value is very low. We eat these foods and feel satisfied only for a short time because, well, honestly, they are not supplying our bodies with the nutrients it needs so we feel the need to eat more…and more! It is not necessarily hunger we are feeling but a nutrient deficiency instead! Convenience is really important in all of our lives and I believe, we can reduce the types of foods mentioned above and replace them with foods that are nutrient dense with no added stress. It’s time to get back to the basics of eating all food groups and loving what the earth and nature provide!

Trust me and trust yourself. Make a few changes and you will not believe your energy, your clarity, your good mood, and oh, yeah—you might lose a few unwanted pounds as a bonus! This is a recipe for Delicious Turkey, Sweet Potato and Bean Chili. Don’t let the name scare you. This is absolutely delicious and the nutrient value is off the charts! Full of protein, fiber, complex carbs, antioxidants, and healthy fat. This will not only amp up your immune system, and fuel your body with important nutrients, but it will satisfy you for hours. Remember, fueling your body adequately helps your brain function and your body function at its peak throughout the day. You will feel better and crave less if you consume what your body needs. So go ahead and eat up! This is a great meal that you can enjoy throughout the week. It freezes well, too!

Delicious Turkey, Sweet Potato and Bean Chili 2 tbs. olive oil 2 lb. ground turkey (1 lb. ground breast and 1 lb. regular) Kosher salt and black pepper to taste 1 large sweet potato chopped into small chunks 1 yellow onion, chopped 1 red bell pepper, chopped 3 garlic cloves, minced 3 tbs. tomato paste 1/8 cup chili powder 1 tsp. ground cumin 1 tsp. dried oregano 1 tsp. garlic pepper 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper 1 - 14 oz. can diced tomatoes with mild green chilies 1 - 14 oz. can petite diced tomatoes 1 can black beans 1 can northern beans 3 cups low sodium chicken stock 1 cup water 2 tbs. balsamic vinegar 2 tbs. Worcestershire sauce 1 tsp. sugar

1. Heat one tbs. olive oil on stovetop. Add turkey and cook through. Transfer to bowl. 2. Heat one tbs. olive oil in pan and add onion, red pepper. Sauté for about four minutes. Add sweet potatoes and garlic and sauté for another minute. 3. Add tomato paste, chili powder, garlic pepper, cumin, oregano and cayenne pepper and stir to mix. 4. Add tomatoes, beans, chicken stock, water, balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, sugar, salt and pepper. Stir. 5. Add ground turkey back in. Cover and simmer on very low heat for about 20 to 30 minutes. Serve it up and enjoy!

Money &



Navigating the investment world can be a daunting task in today’s environment. Economic uncertainties, media hype, and complex products are just the tip of the iceberg that threatens a successful voyage. So why set sail in the first place? Before we let our trepidation lead to paralysis, let’s take a look at five principles that help facilitate a positive long term investment experience. DON’T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF It’s easy to get tangled in today’s web of fast information with round the clock market coverage available at your fingertips and pundits voicing their opinion of the next super stock. Stocks, funds and the like fluctuate in value on a daily basis for myriad reasons and these movements are not necessarily indicative of long term trends. Provided your investment strategy is properly aligned with your objectives, daily performance tracking is unnecessary. Furthermore, frequently monitoring your investments can lead to increased anxiety and unwarranted concern over the stability of your financial future. Those who regularly check their investment performance often feel unsatisfied with their results even if they experience reasonable returns. By looking at your quarterly or annual statements you’ll be able to stay up to date on your investment accounts without driving yourself crazy. Remember, while you should not neglect your investments, a watched pot never boils.

asset classes designed in alignment with your risk tolerance and time horizon. This strategy seeks to minimize potential risk while striving to generate a positive return by spreading your funds amongst various types of stocks and bonds or asset classes. The rate at which various asset classes perform each year varies and having a well diversified portfolio is an excellent way to take advantage of shifting trends from year to year. If you’re looking to manage risk, think about bringing some diversity to your portfolio. While asset allocation cannot eliminate the risk of fluctuating prices and uncertain returns, never put all your eggs in one basket. MAKE VOLATILITY WORK IN YOUR FAVOR Another powerful instrument in the investor’s toolbox is dollar cost averaging. This strategy allows you to benefit from the regular ups and downs experienced in the market by simply investing a given dollar amount on a regular basis. When the market is down, your money buys more shares of a given security. When the market is up, your money buys fewer shares. By

adhering to this principle the average share cost over time becomes favorable as you purchase a greater number of shares at a lower share price. The key ingredient for this recipe to work is discipline. To most, investing in a down market may seem counter intuitive and failure to be consistent with this strategy will sacrifice its potential benefits. Here’s the key, put your retirement savings on auto pilot and you’ll be able to maintain the discipline needed to take control of your financial future as well as harness the power of dollar cost averaging. MAINTAIN PERSPECTIVE Focus on the life events you are planning for rather than concentrating solely on returns and percentages. As the market transitions through ups and downs the most important question to ask is, “how does this affect my ability to live the life I’ve envisioned.” Whether your goal is to solidify retirement, prevent outliving your assets, make a major life purchase, pay for children or grandchildren’s education, leave a legacy, or make a charitable donation, you need to have a clear picture of your time horizon. market volatility continued on page 22

IF YOU FAIL TO PLAN, YOU PLAN TO FAIL Today we understand the single most important variable in achieving a successful long term investment experience is proper asset allocation. What that means is that you should have a well rounded portfolio comprised of various non-correlated 20

Understanding how much time you have before you need to meet your objectives is integral in determining your investment strategy. At the end of the day we are all trying to live the one life we have on this earth the best way possible. Stay focused on what’s really important and make sure your investment strategy is aligned to help meet those goals. TIME IS THE SECRET INGREDIENT Time in the market, is more important than timing the market. As illustrated by the graph below, you’ll note diminishing returns for those who were sidelined for the best performing days of the market during the 20 year period shown. The market is composed of innumerable interrelated components fueled by speculation and emotion. It’s simply too complex and organic in nature to predict short term movement. Just as in life, expect and accept that ups and downs will occur. Think of market timing like this, instead of darting in and out of traffic to try and arrive at your destination quicker, put on the cruise control and enjoy the ride. While there are no guarantees, odds are that you will get there in better shape. Please note, past results are not necessarily indicative of future returns and it is not possible to invest directly in an index.

WHERE TO NOW? So what do you do with your hard earned money and where do you turn for advice? First, take a deep breath it’s not all as bad as it seems out there. If you feel it would be beneficial, seek the guidance of a trusted professional who understands your needs and can help you create a meaningful strategy toward your goals. Remember, the relationship you build with your financial advisor is a partnership and your input is paramount to ensure your expectations

and needs are met. Be diligent with your savings and well disciplined with your investment strategy. Put a strategic plan in place that reflects your goals and objectives and stay the course.

Note: A periodic investment plan such as dollar cost averaging does not assure a profit or protect against a loss in declining markets. Since such a strategy involves continuous investment, the investor should consider his or her ability to continue purchases through periods of low price levels.

Fauquier Health Home Care Shop Offers Comfort for Cancer Patients – and More The Fauquier Health Home Care Shop, located at Fauquier Hospital, offers the comfort that comes with understanding the unique needs of those who are recovering from illness. Along with the fear and pain that comes with a cancer diagnosis and treatment plan, come dozens of practical problems. “What can I do about losing my hair? I don’t want to be conspicuous wherever I go.” “During treatment, I can’t seem to stay warm.” “My muscles are so sore and uncomfortable. How can I sit in one place for hours while I have my treatment?” Carol Vogel, selling specialist with the Home Care Shop, says that the venue provides solutions for all these worries. The shop sells special hats designed to come down a little further in front, for the comfort of those who have temporarily lost their hair. Clever “hair for hats” can be purchased as well; they fit inside the hat and provide an attractive, natural-looking fringe. Called Hair Halos and Fringes, they come in several shades. Extra-warm scarves, wraps and socks will help keep patients warm while their systems are compromised, and specially designed cushions provide support for sore muscles. Another item that patients and their families have found useful is a booklet

called “The Care Organizer,” that helps keep track of medical results, appointments, prescriptions, and all the other overwhelming details, from diagnosis through treatment. Beth Foddrell, whose mother was a cancer patient, said, “We had one of these when Mom was ill, and it was fantastic. Everything we needed was in one place and organized, and no matter who was taking her to a particular appointment, they had all the information at their fingertips. It was a tremendous help.”

socks. The Home Care Shop offers a large selection, including those with a pretty bit of lace at the top. It can be a bit tricky to find the right size for compression socks; the Home Care Shop is the only place locally to offer fittings.

Wound care patients will find the bandages and other specialty items they need. And for those with orthopedic injuries, the Home Care Shop provides a full range of braces and supports, as well as canes, walkers and transport wheelchairs. And just for fun, CastMedic accessories are available as well. These are colorful, pretty pieces that are used to brighten up a boot cast. Who says a cast has to be boring?

Mothers-to-be can purchase belts that help support their growing bellies, and can rent hospital-quality breast pumps so they can provide breast milk for their babies when they are away from home. Pumps rent for $55 a month or $25 a week. Dr. Wesley Hodgson, OB/ GYN, is delighted that breast pumps are a part of the Home Care Shop inventory. “Supporting breastfeeding is an important responsibility for all of us for so many reasons, so I’m very pleased we can offer this resource right in the hospital to all of our new moms.”

The Home Care Shop also sells Biofreeze, the popular topical pain reliever. It comes in a gel or a spray, and is especially effective for arthritis, back pain and sore muscles and joints. Patients with edema, phlebitis and thrombosis, as well as other venous disorders, often need compression

For older residents, bed and bathroom safety items can make life easier and more comfortable. The Home Care Shop sells guard rails, elevated toilet seats, bedside commodes and shower seats.

The Home Care Shop is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays. The shop does not accept insurance.

Specially designed hair replacements called Hair Halos and Fringe fit under a hat.

international healing By George Rowand

Marianne Clyde has been all over. “I’ve traveled to about 40 different countries, and probably half of those have been needy countries, like Afghanistan or Malawi or Sierra Leone,” she said. And she has seen some truly horrible things. “In Sierra Leone – where there was a civil war – everybody had someone in their family or a close friend who had an amputation by machete or a chainsaw,” she stated. “And I worked directly with the amputees. I sat with parents who saw six of their children mutilated like that.” Yet the licensed marriage and family therapist who has an office in Warrenton maintains her faith. “I always go back to ‘I believe God is good. I believe that everything will work out ultimately. I believe His intentions are good. He fills us with love and joy and peace.’ But people make other decisions.” Movable Therapist Born in Pennsylvania, Clyde and her husband recently returned to America after spending more than eight years in Japan. While finding that country attractive, she admitted to some culture shock. “At first, it was hard to get used to living there because you would go in the subway, and nobody would look at you,”she explained. “It was kind of lonely because in the States, you walk down the street and you smile and say ‘Hey,’ but they don’t do that over there, so for the first week or so, it was kind of, ‘Give me some eye contact, give me some full-face view.’ “The women friends that I made are more westernized,” Clyde continued. “They’re not as shy. They just love English. They like to connect through English. They feel more through English. We have better words for things like love. They don’t even have a word for sin, so it’s hard to talk about it. To them, it’s ‘crime.’ It was just different.” She said that while they really liked much about Japan, her heartstrings were being pulled homeward. “It was hard to be away from my kids and grandchildren,” Clyde said. “The grandchildren kept coming and coming and coming. When we left, we had one grandchild, and now we have 11. We had Skype and Facebook, but it’s not like holding your grandchildren.” A therapist for more than two decades, Clyde has practiced in numerous places. Clyde pictured above is connecting with one of the rape victims in the Democratic Republic of Congo during a trip there in June. 26

“I’ve been doing this for 22 years … kind of all over. I started in California – where I got my degree – and then Boston, Great Falls, then Sterling, Japan and here. I teach trauma recovery.” Clyde said that her form of therapy involves looking closely at what happened to the patient when they were a child. “I believe that a lot of our problems as adults comes from the beliefs that are seared into us when we are children,” she explained. “Whether it’s a big trauma or a little trauma, our beliefs are formed very, very early, and then our lives kind of happen around those beliefs. If I think that nobody loves you or ‘I’m inadequate,’ or you get that famous saying from the parent, ‘Can’t you do anything right?’ You get that enough as a six-yearold, you start to believe that you can’t do anything right … you can’t do relationships right, you can’t keep a job … so if I can go in and help them change that belief, there is a trickle down effect.” She provided an example. “Some people think they have an anger issue, and they come to me and want me to teach them anger management. I can teach them to manage their anger, but I’d much rather teach them to be secure in who they are, and then, you’ve got no anger. Why be angry? And that has to do with digging out the source and origin of the anger. What was it that you were told when you were a kid that inadvertently wounded you? We are all wounded in childhood in some way. Most everybody has some belief that they’ve formed about themselves in childhood that’s negative, and it limits them as a human being, limits then in business, limits their confidence, limits their ability to love.” Her work overseas is most striking in terms of what her patients there have faced.

Clyde pictured with Margaret Chikago, the wife of the former Malawi ambassador to Japan. They worked with locals to empower the villages with crops of maize so they can become self sustaining.

“I go all over the world with different ministries, different non-profit organizations, different NGOs (non governmental organizations) and teach in various forms,” Clyde related. “In Honduras, the girls get married at 12 and 13 and get pregnant and get deserted and abused, so we teach them to be leaders, but we also have to deal with the trauma that they’re dealing with at home on a one-on-one basis.” Working in Cambodia, three decades after the horror of the rule of Pol Pot and the Khymer Rouge, Clyde once asked a young man who was studying to become a pastor what he would do if someone came to him and threatened suicide. His response shocked Clyde. “He said, ‘Well, I’d probably put a rope around his neck and pull it until he was almost dead so he could see that it was not a good thing.’ I was up there going, ‘Uh … uh … uh,’ and finally I said, ‘Do you think Jesus would do that?’ ‘No, Jesus would …’ and he went on, so I said, ‘Let’s try to put ourselves in Jesus’ place.’ “I would do trauma counseling with them because they had come by that trauma honestly. Their parents had been very harsh with them because they had to survive, and they were not the educated ones that were left because Pol Pot had the educated people killed. They probably were the uneducated parents that had to survive, and they had a lot of hate, bitterness and fear, so they raised kids with hate, bitterness and fear. Cultures take time to change. The hatred, the violence, the harshness of some cultures, it just takes a long time to work that out. If a generation was terrorized by Pol Pot, and they have kids, those kids are directly affected by that, and it takes a long time to wear itself out in the culture.

“In Sierra Leone, I worked with the amputees and their families, and I would take them back to the fear and the horror and say, ‘What’s the truth? It doesn’t happen to everybody, it isn’t going to happen every day.’ After going through something like that, they start to believe that the world is just evil, so I teach them how to change their beliefs and come back with a new belief and a healing.” Just breathe Clyde said that she has started a new website – mommy-zen.com – to help parents have the tools to deal with raising a child. “My goal is to reach a million mindful Moms, and it doesn’t have to be a Mom,” she explained. “It can be a grandmother or a Dad or whatever, but to get people to really commit to being conscious in your communication with your kids, especially when they’re young. It’s easy to say, ‘Oh, shut up. Go watch TV.’ It’s called unconscious parenting. Even conscious parents make mistakes or blow a kid off sometimes or hurt them, inadvertently, but my goal is to get parents to concentrate on being mindful, peaceful and centered in themselves, which is the essence of my practice. My practice focuses on getting people to understand that they are already whole, perfect and complete, lacking nothing. They can be calm and rooted in that, and then they are going to be a calm parent. It doesn’t mean that your techniques won’t vary but you won’t be dependent on your child to validate you, you won’t be dependent on your child to prove that you’re an awesome parent, you won’t be dependent on your child to, you know, be a professional football player or baseball player, so you can sit at the T-ball games relaxed without putting pressure on that kid. You can be a better parent when you are centered and connected, and that’s one of my goals. It’s not working with the kids, it’s working with the parents so they can work with the kids. The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world. I’ve believed that since I was a young Mom.” One of her suggestions is simple. She mentioned a child acting up in a store. “Get your kids to take a deep breath. ‘Take a deep breath. Mommy’s taking a deep breath, and we’ll talk about it outside.’ We react so quickly. ‘Everybody’s thinking I’m a bad Mom because my kid’s a real brat right now.’ Everybody feels like that. I feel like that sometimes. When you’re two, you don’t have those skills, so don’t get mad at the kid, teach the kid. ‘That’s not how we respond.’ Most kids respond the way their parents respond so if they’re going to be reactive, the kid is going to be reactive. Just breathe.” Working with an extremely wide variety of patients, Clyde said that she loves what she does.

Clyde sits with Lynne Hybels, co-founder of Willow Creek Church in Chicago, and Dr. Monique Kapamba, the Head of Gender based Violence and HIV on the World Relief Staff in Congo. She listening to Dr. Monique talk about the horrors of rape as a weapon of war.

“My husband says that I would do it for free,” she said with a laugh. “I’m trying not to do that.” And she sums up her aim in therapy. “My little elevator speech is that I help people break through the barriers that keep them from living the abundant life they were created to live. That’s what I do. I help them identify the source and origin of their dysfunction, whether it’s alcohol or an eating disorder, anxiety or depression or relationship issues … no matter what the problem is, I help them find what the source and origin is, and usually, it’s rooted in childhood. It’s usually some form of disempowering message we tell ourselves over and over, and I try to help them change that message, usually within their faith context because God knows where the source and origin is, whether He’s Jesus or some other energy or higher power to people, just listen to the still, small voice within you. I get people to listen to it, to be still. “You can say to almost anybody, ‘Okay you’re that three-year-old kid, and you think that nobody loves you because your Mom had to go back to work and you’re all alone, what’s the truth?’ And if they listen, they hear the truth. It could be as simple as ‘I’m not alone,’ or ‘I’m powerful,’ or ‘I have a great mind.’ Some empowering thing comes to them if they listen, and my big schtick is, ‘Just breathe.’ If you take a deep breath and listen to the stillness, you have your answer. Rather than react, rather be hurt and offended, rather than yell at somebody, rather than doing your gut reaction, take a deep breath and see what’s going on. And then respond. It solves all sorts of problems. It solves anger issues. It solves inadequacy issues. It solves relationship issues. Just listen to the quiet. God is in the quiet. I do think that there is a purpose, that God is good.” Marianne Clyde’s practice is located in Suite 105 at 20 Ashby Street in Old Town Warrenton.

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

Celebrating Maxwell Harway’s ‘first century’ Teacher, social worker, soldier, government executive, & volunteer By John T. Toler

This month, Maxwell Harway will celebrate his 100th birthday, returning to Warrenton from his winter home in Florida to mark the occasion with friends and family. A resident of Warrenton since 1978, his accomplishments as civic leader and community activist are well known, but few people are aware of his lifetime of experiences before he retired from federal government service and came to Warrenton. Indeed, in his first 65 years before coming here, Max was involved in a lot, and witnessed even more.



Early years of the 20th century To establish a timeframe, Max Harway was born March 7, 1913, ten years after the Wright Brothers’ first flight, three days after the inauguration of Pres. Woodrow Wilson, and 17 months before the outbreak of World War I.


His parents, Samuel and Esther Harway, had come from Winnipeg, in western Canada, to New York, where Max’s father was part owner of a garment factory. The Harways and their four children lived on the lower east side of Manhattan Island known as “Alphabet City,” an enclave populated by German, Polish, Hispanic and Jewish immigrant families. Max attended New York public schools, graduating from the prestigious three-year Townsend Harris High School, known as “the school for little geniuses.” Fellow classmates included Jonas Salk, future developer of the Salk Polio Vaccine; author Herman Wouk (The Caine Mutiny, Winds of War); and Cornel Wilde, who became a Hollywood movie star. The Great Depression started with the Wall Street Crash of Oct. 29, 1929, three months before Max graduated from high school. In February 1930, he entered the City College of New York, but his studies were continually interrupted, as he was forced to go to work when his father’s business fell victim to the Depression. In 1933, Max spent a year at the Teachers College of Columbia University, but had to drop out, as he could not afford the tuition of $150 per year. Two years later, he became a teacher through a program offered by the Works Progress Administration (WPA). He eventually became a head teacher, and was elected president of the American Federation of Teachers. Max continued his education, taking classes at the Free City College of New York, finally receiving his BS in Economics in 1938.


Warrenton Lifestyle

He then spent a year as a social worker for the New York City Old Age Assistance Act, adopted by then-Gov. Franklin D. Roosevelt. This program was the precursor of the Social Security Act for all Americans, which was enacted in 1937 by President Roosevelt. Later, Max had the distinct honor of having tea at the White House with First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt. Also during this time, he managed to accumulate 12 credits from the Columbia University graduate school. Federal service, U.S. Army duty In 1939, Max joined the federal government, working to enforce the newly adopted Fair Labor Standards Act, at a time when the minimum wage was 25 cents per hour. Two years later, he came to Washington, D.C. as an economist in what became the Office of Price Administration, attached to the Executive Office of Pres. Roosevelt. On Dec. 7, 1941, Japanese forces attacked Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, bringing the United States into World War II. Max recalled that a week after the outbreak of what would

be a long, difficult war, he wrote the first memorandum recommending the rationing of sugar – the first time food was ever rationed in the U.S. “America’s first ration book was issued to and in the hands of 135 million Americans, the population at that time, by February 1942,” he recalled. Shortly afterward, Max was appointed Chief Economist for Food Rationing, and developed the first program for the rationing of canned foods in the U.S. Although he held a highly responsible government job, Max was not exempt from the military draft, and by April 1943 was serving in the U.S. Army Air Corps. He was assigned to the Air Transport command, and as a senior noncommissioned officer, was responsible for setting up forward airbases, transferring aircraft, and managing supply lines in the European, North African and Middle Eastern theaters of the war. One of Tech. Sgt. Max Harway’s responsibilities was preparing aircraft for delivery to Allied forces, which involved in transporting aircraft from Casablanca, Morocco, to the North African and European theaters, including aircraft bound for China by way of India. Occasionally, Max found himself working at airports in neutral countries, as was the case when he was assigned to the airport at Adana, in southern Turkey. Turkey was neutral during World War II, and that meant that his crew of 15 mechanics sometimes worked in sight of German crews, who were working on German aircraft. “We wore khaki uniforms without insignias, and so did the Germans. My men would go into town, or to a restaurant, and be dressed in the same uniforms as the Germans,” Max

recalled. “We knew who the Germans were, and the Germans knew who we were, but there was never any interaction.” It was during his military service that Max developed a lifelong connection with North Africa. In between assignments, he was free to roam the Allied-controlled areas, and could always hitch a ride on an airplane headed someplace interesting. Indeed, it was while Max was in Morocco that he met Georgette Nadelar, who had been born in Marseilles, but was living in Morocco with her parents. They were married in December 1945. Max completed his military service in February 1946, and returned to the U.S. with his new wife. State Department career Max resumed his civilian career in September 1947, when he joined the Economic Section of the Department of State. His first year, he attended a transportation conference in Lisbon, Portugal, followed by the Danube Conference in Belgrade, Yugoslavia. There, he met with all of the principal leaders of the Communist countries in Eastern Europe.

As a government economist, Max Harway was instrumental in setting up the rationing of canned food during World War. Ration books like this one were used.

This conference foreshadowed the tensions between the former western allies and the Eastern Communist Bloc that brought on the blockade of Berlin in June 1948; the Berlin Airlift; and the Cold War that would last for the next 40-plus years. From September 1950 to May 1951, Max was a student at the Industrial College of the Armed Forces (now the National Defense University). In a large class made up mostly of Army colonels and Navy commanders, former Sgt. Max Harway was one of only eight civilians enrolled, and the youngest member of the class. “Some of the colonels – who had been generals in World War II, but had been reduced in rank after the war was over – were surprised that they were in class with an exsergeant,” Max recalled. “Especially two of them. When we would get into discussions about particular topics, they would turn to me and ask, ‘So, Sgt. Harway! What does the State Department think about this?’ I would politely tell them.” After graduating from the War College in 1951, Max returned to the State Department, where was appointed Chief of the African Section of the Point Four Program, which was established to provide technical assistance to African countries. He spent four months in the State of Libya, and signed the first treaty between the U.S. and Libya, which had become independent under King Idris al-Sanusi in 1951.

During World War II, Technical Sgt. Harway served in the U.S. Army Air Corps, and spent part of his tour in North Africa, including Morocco, where this photo was taken. 36

“Previously, Libya had been an Italian possession, but following World War II, the United Nations wanted the Libyans to be independent,” Max recalled. “That’s because harway continued on page 38 Warrenton Lifestyle

the Russians wanted access to the Mediterranean Sea, and felt that because they had fought the Germans and Italians in the war, they were entitled to Libya as a possession.” However, both Britain and the U.S. were against such a move, and the issue was solved when the U.N. voted to create an independent Libya. “However, the Libyans were not ready for independence,” Max noted. In December 2011, Max Harway – the only surviving member of the Class of 1951 – was invited to return to the National Defense University to speak about his national and international experiences. He received special recognition from the Commandant. Private industry, then back to State Max left the State Department in 1953 to work for a major American minerals corporation owned by Henry Lier. He returned to Casablanca with his wife and family, where he opened a branch office serving Africa and the Middle East. “Our chief export was phosphates for fertilizer,” said Max. “But Morocco was the world’s second largest producer of phosphates, so there was no need to import it.” After three years, Harway returned to the company’s New York office, where he worked as Henry Lier’s assistant. Sadly, his wife Georgette died in 1964 while visiting her parents in Casablanca. Her death prompted Max to return to Washington, D.C., to care for their three children – Michelle, Philip and Danielle. From 1965-1967 as a “Dollar-a-Year Man” for Pres. Lyndon B. Johnson’s “War on Poverty” program, which was administered by R. Sargent Shriver. “Actually, you never even got the dollar, and you had to pay $6 a day for parking,” Max recalled. “But these weren’t

Max Harway and Georgette Nadelar were married in Morocco in 1945. By 1948 they were living in Washington, D.C., with their first daughter, Michelle.

honorary positions… we were people who went to work for the government for free.” His salary continued to be paid by the mineral company in New York, which considered him to be “on loan” to the government. In September 1967, Max returned to the State Department, where he headed the Commodities Division of the Vietnam Bureau. “In other words, I was in charge of providing what was needed to make sure that the South Vietnamese economy had steel, fertilizer and whatever else to keep their economy going,” he explained. At the time, war raged in that country. Max made several trips to Vietnam, where he was attached to the U.S. Embassy in Saigon, and later in Cambodia. While there, Harway was infected with Dengue fever, and was evacuated to a hospital in Singapore, where he spent several months recovering. Max returned to Washington, where he continued to work for the Vietnam Bureau, and also earned a Master of Arts degree in International Relations from Georgetown University.

Max retired from the State Department until in March 1978, when he turned 65. He then moved to Warrenton, where he became active in community affairs and local politics, writing for The Fauquier Democrat and the Fauquier Citizen. He also found time to travel abroad, and along with a group of American economists visited China in 1992 as a guest of the Chinese government. harway continued on page 40 Warrenton Lifestyle

While there, he met his future wife, Ceceann Winstanley, a film executive who was visiting distributors in Hong Kong. They married in 1996. In 2000, Max Harway and Richard Gookin (in period dress for the event) organized the successful Salute to Lafayette, marking the 175th anniversary of Gen. Lafayette’s visit to Warrenton.

An active retirement Max’s contributions to Warrenton and Fauquier County include serving as the president of the Fauquier Historical Society (1997-2003), and organizing the Fauquier Forum (1990-1995), which brought prominent journalists, government officials, authors and other notables to Warrenton to speak on a wide range of public affairs. Max also served as member of the Town of Warrenton Economic Development Committee (1998-2001), and as Fauquier County’s representative on the RappahannockRapidan Community Services Board (1996-2003). In 2000, Max and Richard Gookin organized the Salute to Lafayette, marking the 175th anniversary of Gen. Lafayette’s visit to Warrenton. It was a three-day celebration that involved Fauquier County Public Schools, as well as the French Embassy and Marine Corps Band. Master of Ceremonies was television personality Willard Scott, and the Fauquier Historical Society and Old Jail Museum provided exhibits. Also in 2000, Max was approached by the late Julian Scheer, and asked to direct the effort to publish a new county history book for Fauquier’s 250th anniversary. He initially declined. “Innocently I asked Julian, ‘When is the 250th anniversary?’ Julian replied, ‘It’s in 2009,’ to which I responded, ‘I’ll be 96 years of age then. Get someone else to do it.’” Mr. Scheer persisted, and Max took on the project. Sadly, Mr. Scheer died the following year, but his passing gave Max added impetus to successfully complete the book, which was published in 2008 by George Mason University Press. The book was dedicated to Julian Scheer. A hands-on manager, Max was involved in all phases of the project, lending special expertise and working with his contacts in the historical community to produce the best book possible. At no point was his age an issue, whether it was keeping the project on track, or driving in Northern Virginia traffic to work with the publishers and book designers. Today, Max and Ceceann divide their time between their homes in Naples, Florida, and Warrenton. Max’s three children and six grandchildren are the pride and joy of his life, each having excelled in their individual careers. Last March, Max became a great-grandfather, with the birth of Maxwell Harway Barron.

Reflections of the past, and future Max was a professor of history at George Mason University for many years (well into his 90s), and until 2012 taught at the Renaissance Academy of Florida Gulf Coast University. In 1996 received an Honorary Doctor of Laws from Clark University of Worcester, Mass., and received a letter of recognition from Pres. Bill Clinton. Max continued his study of the diverse cultures and religions in North Africa and the Middle East, and so the recent turmoil in these regions comes as no surprise to him. About the American economic scene, he recently commented on the huge changes that he has seen. “I’ve lived through many periods of change, including the rise of the labor unions in the 1930s, World War II in the 1940s, the Cold War, and the rise of technology,” he said in reflection. “At one time, if you learned a skill, perfected it, and practiced what you knew, and could have a lifetime job. Now, many skills can become obsolete in just three to five years.” Max believes that manipulation of the labor force has compounded the problem. Where once a range of skills or knowledge was needed to complete a task or perform a service, jobs have been broken down to smaller tasks, with the simpler parts – or even the whole process – transferred overseas to countries with low-cost labor. Whether one agrees with this centenarian or not, the breadth of his experiences, his continuing curiosity and his sharp mind are what is known as wisdom. And while he has reached a monumental milestone as far as age is concerned, it is what he has done with his life and shared with others that really matter.

after prom

All Night long

After Prom’s night long party provides hours safe fun for teens Our area high schools have been providing students with a place to continue to party once prom ends. After Prom is an event completely organized by volunteers that hosts hundreds of teenagers in the early morning hours. High school seniors, juniors and their dates are welcomed into the school at midnight and challenged to stay until the early morning – 5:00am. Games, prizes, movies, a lounge and a full service food court together create an entertaining and stimulating environment for the teens. Initially started as an event that would keep teens off of the roads during high-risk hours, it’s now grown in popularity with rising attendance, volunteer participation and contributions from the community, essential in keeping this event relevant and exciting. December and January started the After Prom planning process for Fauquier High School to ensure that the ongoing theme “Celebrate Life” will continue to be a success. Parents and faculty work together to fundraise, organize, shop and recruit new volunteers. “A couple of years ago we got some really vibrant parents,” Kim Steves, a parent volunteer and committee member mentioned. “And I think they almost pushed the envelope, which brought more kids in and then it just became a challenge to keep making it bigger.” The enthusiasm and compassion from the parent and faculty volunteers really sets this event apart from other school functions. Parents of juniors and seniors are strongly encouraged to participate (since it’s one of the last high school events you can share with your child). Freshman and sophomore parents are asked to volunteer as a way to get connected in the high school community and promote the event to their children when they are able to attend. “We have about 50 volunteers,” Eda Lenhart a committee member said. “People come and go, some people help Friday night and other people just can’t stay until five in the morning.” Volunteers are asked to participate for as much or as little as they would like, standard shifts are two to three hours long. Volunteers are currently working on collecting donations from the Fauquier High School community and the business community. The funds raised in the upcoming weeks will help purchase items like decorations, additional prizes, various carnival games like money machines, bounce houses and inflatable slides. “The parents’ donation of $20 keeps their child safe, with all of the food they want and entertainment for five hours, along with the chance of winning a prize,” Lenhart said. “It’s a great value!” Prize donations and the prizes purchased really help motivate student participation. The prize table in years past boasted televisions, iPads, laptops, GPS devices, jewelry, gaming systems, cash, gift cards, college prep-packages and more. “It’s set up sort of like a Chuck-E-Cheese idea where you turn in your tickets but we do chips,” Steves explained. “Quarter cup, half

cup, full cup of chips – they all of a sudden become such savvy shoppers.” A deejay and a karaoke machine provide background music for the games available each year including similar one like a climbing mountain, racing toilets, mini golf, an obstacle course and a bull ride. Casino gambling is available to earn more chips for the students to cash in for great prizes. Board games like bingo and Monopoly are also available as an activity as well as open gym for volleyball and basketball. “It’s really one of your last times to enjoy yourself as a kid,” mentioned a previous Fauquier High School student. “And you get to do it with all your friends around.” The local business community has been a big contributor to After Prom by donating local services and products. Businesses like Regeti’s Photography, Hartman Jewelers, Ciao Bella Photography, and Jiffy Lube Live have really helped bring some notable prizes to the table. After midnight students can nosh on a smorgasbord of food in a mini food court. The food court is completely supported by donations from businesses like McDonald’s, Carousel Frozen Treats, Chick-Fil-A, Burger King, and Spitony’s. Raffles are made throughout the night but the biggest prize available is a car donated from Country Chevrolet. “Some kids have a car, or could be their parent’s car or it could be not a very good car but the kids really stay for the car,” said Steves. For over a decade, Country Chevrolet has donated cars to the area high schools for After Prom. It’s been a great motivator to get students to participate. Only seniors are qualified to win the car but must be present for the raffle at 5 am. “It’s so fun at the end of the night during the car drawing because you call out 5 names and you’ll hear, “Oh they just left an hour ago!” and you keep calling them,” Steves said. It’s interactive and suspenseful night that both volunteers and students enjoy! The After Prom events are free for all students who are eligible to go to Prom and their dates. Students who choose not to attend prom are still invited to attend After Prom. Fauquier High School After Prom will take place on Saturday, April 13th. Kettle Run High School After prom will take place on Saturday, April 20th. Liberty High School After Prom will take place on Saturday, May 11th. All three schools are in need of volunteers and donations, any parents and businesses interested in contributing should contact the school or local committee members for more information.

Greater Warrenton Chamber of Commerce Raffle Tickets Now Available to Win Sporty New Toyota Scion FRS or $15,000 in Cash

FOOD COALITION IN DESPERATE NEED OF CONTRIBUTIONS The Fauquier County Food Distribution Coalition’s mission is to develop a uniform system of food distribution in the county and to provide a forum for communication between the small food closets, located mostly in churches around the county.

The Greater Warrenton Chamber of Commerce (GWCC) is now selling tickets for the June 16th drawing for a new sporty Toyota Scion FRS or $15,000 in cash. The drawing will take place during the Car Show in Old Town Warrenton. Tickets are $20 each. Only 1,999 tickets will be sold. The winner does not need to be present. If fewer than 1,500 raffle tickets are sold—the raffle will revert to a 50/50 drawing. This raffle is the annual fundraiser for the GWCC whose mission is to help local businesses succeed. GWCC works to improve the local business climate through government advocacy, business networking, education, assistance, and advancement programs. Mark Child, Chairman of the GWCC Raffle Committee, commented “This is a wonderful opportunity to support your local business community and have an excellent chance to win a fantastic car or $15,000 in cash.” Raffle tickets may be obtained by contacting Michele Flores, Member Services Director for the GWCC at 540.229.8915 or mflores@ warrentonchamber.org. Checks and credit cards are accepted. 48

Since 2002, the Fauquier County Food Distribution Coalition has increased to 12 active organizations. Coalition members come from a variety of organizations including county government, community nonprofits, and area churches. Without such wonderful support by all the coalition members, this project never would have developed into the tangible resource it has become. The coalition distributes food to approximately 120-130 needy families each month. Distributions are always held on the 3rd Saturday of each month at the Warrenton United Methodist Church. Active organizations rotate the responsibility of recruiting volunteers to coordinate the delivery, organization and distribution of the food boxes. Currently, 20-25 volunteers contribute 4 hours each month, however there is still need for more volunteer groups as well as members of the board of directors. In addition to the basic food commodities provided by the USDA and the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, families can choose from items collected by Grace Episcopal Church’s monthly themed drive. Themes in past have been summer clothing, winter coats, boots, mittens/hats, and personal care items. Monthly volunteers are needed here as well. The last five years The Coalition has seen a very large decrease in “free” USDA foods. In order to continue to provide this service, volunteers are now collecting food from the local Safeway/Giant, on the 3rd Thursday and Friday, to be distributed on that Saturday. The coalition is a 501©3, non-profit organization and financial donations are used to buy additional food at a discount rate from the USDA. For additional information, please contact Susan Dove, President, Fauquier County Food Distribution Coalition at (540)347-1046 or send an email at info@fcfdc.org. If you are interested in donating food items or sending a monetary donation drop off or mail to 24 Pelham Street, Warrenton, Virginia 20186. Warrenton Lifestyle

Hospice Support has continued to serve Fauquier County for over 31 years. We are the original home town hospice serving this community. We are a non-medical hospice providing support to those with a limited life expectancy and their families. Our volunteers visit patients in their homes or nursing facilities and provide assistance in numerous ways while also giving the family needed respite from their 24/7 patient care responsibilities. Hospice Support needs volunteers to fill out the ranks of our wonderful group of volunteers. Free volunteer training classes will begin on consecutive Wednesdays, February 27, 2013 thru March 27, 2013 from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. The following subjects will be explored, Body Mechanics, Grief, Hospice, Family Dynamics, Patient Care Coordination and a host of other topics. Our volunteers do many things for the patient, such as reading, playing games, or conversing and spending time with them. They might also make lunch or assist in grooming the patient. There are so many other services that can be done and these will be discussed during the training. There are many doors in life that we all must pass through. Our patients are approaching their final door. It is a tremendous honor to walk with them to this door. We need you as a volunteer. We hope that you apply. Please 540-347-5922, or email, marittagotz@hospicesupport.org to register. March 2013

Boundaries at Home building boundaries helps build relationships

When I began Simply Pure, the goal was to provide simplymade bath and beauty products for as many people as possible. I could have never imagined the doors that opening a business would open for me personally, but I have to say that speaking to women has been one of my favorites. I have had opportunities to share my business, to share my faith, to teach and to tell my story to many others. Although recently I was asked to share about boundaries.

comes inside the boundaries of my home with the click of a button. There is the television, a myriad of handheld devices that distract all of us from each other, and laptops that keep us plugged into the world instead of stepping away from it when we walk into our home.

That took me back for a moment. It’s a subject that many of us struggle with. Not many of us tackle the issue, because it covers such a broad range in our everyday lives. There are so many different avenues that discussing boundaries can take; but most interesting to me was how do I get back to basics with my family. With the boundaries of the world flowing into my home, how do I reestablish those lines and take back my family?

So, last week, we made the decision to start simply and just turn off the television. It was a household rule, that for one week we were going to go without the outside influence of something as simple as the TV. I expected a bit of resistance, but really, something magical happened…conversation. Conversation lead to laughter. Laughter lead to curiosity of everyone wanting to see what was so funny. Curiosity lead to an amazing evening with all of us putting down our handheld devices and the boundary of the world coming into my home was drawn for one night that lead to a second night, and a delightful week.

I grew up on a small farm in Pennsylvania. The boundary of how far I was allowed to go was the edge of my yard. There were hundreds of acres of woods, fields, back roads and country to explore, but my mom was fully aware of the dangers of farm equipment, trucks and animals, that could harm me. So she drew that line for me and my sisters. That line was also drawn for the world. Anyone from the outside could only come so far without knocking or getting through her to be invited inside our home.

Maybe if we want to get back to the basics, it has to go beyond making changes with our food and what we put on our skin. Perhaps the boundaries of our life have to be reestablished and our human interaction has to come first. Wouldn’t it be great if reestablishing the boundaries brought us closer together on that personal level that we have been missing for so long? And wouldn’t it be great if we started with those that we have the closest contact with…our families?

Today, I have four kids of my own that are involved in various activities, a very active business, a ministry at an amazing church, and a marriage that I want to keep happy and alive. If all of those are going to be successful then boundaries are going to have to be drawn.

Boundaries are healthy. Boundaries are what keep our home a safe haven for us and our loved ones. It’s not a barrier, but a protection that keeps the world back, our work life separate and our house a home. I’m looking forward to sharing that in a few weeks, and having actually lived it with my family and seeing the difference that it made in such a short amount of time, I am excited about continually drawing that boundary for my family.

The difficult part is that the boundaries aren’t as easy to define as they were when I was younger. Today the world

Warrenton Lifestyle

Blues, Barbecue & Soul Food

Sibby’s Restaurant & Lounge Tucked away in old town is a small white two-story building with a history of bringing soul, rhythm and blues and tangy barbecue to Warrentonians. Family owned and operated by the Jolley’s, Sibby’s Restaurant & Lounge will continue that tradition having created a causal, friendly atmosphere with family style seating along with home-style dishes in large portions. Sibby’s features comfort food from sandwiches, subs, burgers, and entrees that will give you a taste of home. Go to Sibby’s for lunch and try a soup and salad combination. They offer three large salads with fresh greens and bright vegetables. The Chefs Salad is made with vibrant lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions, egg, ham, turkey, Monterey jack cheese and bacon bits. The Cream of Crab soup is the chef’s specialty; it’s made with large lump crabmeat.

The Pulled Pork Sandwich or the Chicken Breast Sandwich are ideal for a midday meal, both placed on a freshly baked bun with a side of barbecue. The Club Sandwich is massive, with three layers of turkey, ham, lettuce tomato, cheese, bacon and mayo served on white or wheat bread. The Steak and Cheese Sub is a go-to item as well as the Beef Brisket Sub. Their Hamburger and Cheeseburger are both made with a half a pound of beef and adorned with lettuce, tomato and red onions on a sesame seed bun. All of their sandwiches, subs, and burgers are served with French fries. The entrées are perfect for dinner. They dry rub their meats with a homemade blend to enhance the natural flavors and then slow cook over hickory wood from Lawrenceville, Virginia. The 12oz Ribeye is hand-cut, extra tender and it’s cooked to your liking. Offering a half and full rack of Ribs they are meaty and succulent. They also offer Fried Catfish and Grilled Salmon. A Foot Long Jumbo Beef Hot Dog tops the list for their popular demands. The BBQ Dog and the BBQ Burger are customer favorites, both topped with pulled pork. The CRABBY Mac & Cheese is savory with the chef’s cream of crab soup drizzled on a cup or a bowl of warm mac n’ cheese. Sibby’s Restaurant & Lounge is located at 11 South 2nd Street in Old Town near Molly’s Irish Pub and the Berkley Gallery. They are open seven days a week Monday through Saturday 11:00am to 9:00pm and Sunday 8:00am to 3:00pm. The restaurant accepts reservations, has catering services for large and small parties, and can handle carry-out orders. Sibby’s will be bringing blues artists and soul musicians to old town on the weekends. Stay up-to-date on specials and entertainment by “liking” them on Facebook. For more information about their menu or to place an order give them a call at (540)216-3141.

Lifting Your


Barrel Oak Winery

oh the taste of a local wine! By Bob Grouge

If you are looking for great wine in a family friendly environment look no further than Barrel Oak Winery in Delaplane Va. The views are amazing, the grounds filled with families and their pets, yes a pet friendly winery that makes great wine and has fun activities for your children while you taste great wine in an amazing setting. Did I mention the great wine? My first taste of the great wine I mentioned above was the 2010 Cabernet Franc, a perfect match for a grilled Ribeye or New York Strip Steak, with a nice floral nose and good pepper on the finish. I then tried a new combination for me, the 2011 Tour’ga Franc. I see a glass of this delightful wine served with a homemade fettuccine in Arrabiatta sauce, a nice combination of spice and game to go with the spicy pasta dish. Remember Barrel Oak started with a tradition of BowHaus Red and then BowHaus white, two very drinkable wines and the white perfect for a long chat while cooking dinner with friends and the red perfect for complimenting that dinner. The Owners, Brian and Sharon Roeder, started this remarkable business in 2008 and it has become a force in community friendly activities ever since. Barrel Oak Winery is run with passion, passion for wine and passion for helping the community at large, holding several fundraisers and being involved in fundraisers throughout the year. The passion mentioned above is reflected in the many awards Brian and Sharon have collected over the last several years for many of their wines. It is time you came out to Barrel Oak Winery and experienced this passion for you. Barrel Oak Winery is located in Delaplane Va. right off of Rte 66 in the Middle of Wine Country. 3623 Grove Lane Delaplane Va. 20144 Look for Barrel Oak Winery on the Virginia Winemakers Tasting Series starting in March 2013 being held at the Iron Bridge Warrenton, where only Virginia wines are featured every Thursday night from 6:00pm until 8:00pm throughout the spring and summer.
