The cast of 38 and orchestra of 15 will perform the production, with book, music and lyrics by Willson, based on a story by Willson and Franklin Lacey. The Music Man was first produced on Broadway in 1957, followed by popular film adaptations in 1962 and 2003. It is one of the most frequently produced musicals in the world. In the story, set in the fictional River City, Iowa in 1912, a con man who goes by the name Harold Hill comes to town to bilk the citizens out of their money by convincing them that they need to start a boys band, complete with expensive musical instruments and uniforms. His plan to run off with the money is disrupted when he falls in love with the uptight town librarian, Marion Paroo.

Proms 2010:

A Season of Formal Fun Part 1: Preparing Proms for the Teens of Fauquier County


ho knew that some of the most clever and organized event planners in town are actually eleventh graders? As prom season approaches and most teens are shopping for dresses or tuxedos and considering where to dine before prom, local prom planning committees are breathing a sigh of relief because their hard work is almost over! Tradition dictates that this formal springtime event is usually planned by the junior class. This is so that the seniors may be the honored guests, since they will soon say goodbye to high school forever. Local high school proms are not simple school dances. Nowadays, proms have elaborate themes, color schemes, and a distinct air of sophistication. “We started planning our prom in November,” said Liberty’s junior class president, Caroline Eckert. “Our first step was brainstorming about theme ideas. We wanted something elegant, but unique. We narrowed it to four ideas, but ultimately settled upon ‘Moonlit Venice’ for our prom theme,” she added. Once Liberty’s theme was selected, the creative junior class officers, Caroline Eckert, Mary Hunt, Christina Wingo, and Megan Dwyer began to conduct some research. “We liked the imagery of Venice, overall. The warm terracotta tones in the architecture create a contrast with the cool blue tones of the canal waters. This was our inspiration for the overall décor,” said Mary Hunt. Liberty holds their prom off-campus, at the Fauquier County Fairgrounds building. The building is large and accommodating, but a bit stark. For this reason, the students

utilize fabric to drape over the walls and large stage set pieces provided by an event planning company in Richmond. “This year, we are draping the walls in blue fabric to represent water, but we are using warm-toned table linens and set pieces. Some of the large prop pieces will include a 12 ft. wide and 11 ft tall Venice canal scene, a 16 ft. canal bridge, and gondola tie posts. The lighting will feature a night sky with a blue wash of color. The Fauquier County Fairgrounds should look and feel like Venice on May 8th!” said Caroline Eckert. “Our prom theme for this year is ‘Alice in Wonderland’,” said Christina Berriz, a junior at Highland. “Inspired by the latest Alice in Wonderland movie, we are trying to create an ethereal, magical look with purples, blues and greens. We hope to have some key Alice props in there like the tea cups and giant mushrooms,” Berriz added. Highland’s prom will be held at the Dominion Valley Country Club in Haymarket, Virginia. The venue will provide an array of hors d’oeuvres and we will have an open soda bar. “Planning prom encompasses so many aspects you don’t even think about. It takes more work than expected and organization, but it is also a lot of fun. I am really excited to see everything and unfold and hopefully (fingers crossed) it will be amazing in the end,” said Berriz. Prom continued on Page 8

Part 2: Preparing the Teens of Fauquier County for Prom 2010 Once prom is actually planned, and tickets are sold, the real work begins for many area high school students. For most, they have just a few weeks to plan the perfect look, ideal meal, and best transportation for this big evening! Most female students begin with finding the right prom dress. “I am shopping for a short party dress with spaghetti straps. I will probably shop at A Formal Affair in Warrenton,” said Fauquier senior Heather Thomas. “I plan to find a dress in shades of blue, perhaps with some beading. I will also get my nails done, have my hair styled at Salon Emage, and tan at Club Paradise,” said Fauquier senior Devan Locklin. “I plan to wear a short, cocktail-style dress from A Formal Affair. I will get my nails and eyebrows done at Only Nails. I want to look my best since this is my last prom ever; it is a big thing for me!” said Stephanie Hoffman, a senior at Kettle Run. “Overall, we are selling a huge variety of styles for proms this year! Lots of girls are loving the brightly colored print dresses, while others go for a solid color accented with some beading. We have even sold a few ball gowns! We have also taken many tuxedo orders; for the most part, the local male students are going for a classic,


elegant look with a pop of color,” said A Formal Affair sales consultant Kara Crane. Prom preparations are, of course, not just for the girls! “I am planning on wearing a sweet black tux, possibly from A Formal Affair. I want to eat somewhere nice with my group of friends. We are thinking about Iron Bridge in Warrenton. Prom is a great chance to let loose and have some fun. It will be a great group atmosphere,” said Tanner Russo, a junior at Liberty. “I can’t wait for Prom! I plan to wear the standard tuxedo with maybe a red or blue undershirt to show my Eagle spirit. I plan to eat somewhere in town so I can be energized! Prom is going to be the tightest event of the year. Who would miss out on watching me dance?” added Liberty junior, Cody May. Lisa Beth Miller resides in Warrenton. She teaches English and journalism classes at Liberty High School in Bealeton, and also advises the school’s awardwinning publications, Talon and Patriot Press. As the junior class sponsor, Ms. Miller assists in planning Liberty’s prom. The writer is also a senior sales consultant and special events planner at A Formal Affair in Warrenton.

Fauquier Health Fauquier Health Physicians Earn Top Docs Honors Fauquier Hospital is a nice place to work. In fact, for the last few years, the health system has been awarded Warrenton Lifestyle’s Best Place to Work award. As a Planetree Hospital focusing on patient-centered care, employees are treated with respect and consideration, and they pass that on to patients and families. Staff members are equipped with the technology, training and support they need to do the very best job possible. One happy result is that the hospital is able to attract experienced, accomplished employees – and physicians – to work here. Even though the hospital is not the biggest in the region, it boasts some of the best doctors. Two were mentioned specifically as part of last year’s Warrenton Lifestyle “Best of” competition. Dr. Joshua Jakum was chosen the Best Pediatrician and Dr. Steven von Elten won the Best Doctor award. But how do Fauquier Hospital physicians stack up regionally? In the February 2010 edition of Northern Virginia magazine – where Fauquier Hospital was recognized as a five-star hospital for Gastrointestinal Surgeries and Procedures, Pancreatitis – the following doctors were honored as the region’s top doctors: Allergy/Immunology Jyothi Gadde, M.D. Anesthesiology Vincent Vilasi, M.D. Pulmonary/Critical Care George Bazaco, M.D. Kevin Glass, M.D. Hematology/Oncology Robert Marsh, M.D. Gastroenterology Jin Park, M.D. Urology David Pfeffer, M.D.

In a recent issue of the Washingtonian magazine, the following physicians were honored in that publication’s Top Docs list: Allergy/Immunology Jyothi Gadde, M.D. Breast-Cancer Surgery John Williams, M.D. Cardiology Keith Chu, M.D. Merdod Ghafouri, M.D. Christopher Leet, M.D. Hamid Taheri, M.D. Cardiology – Interventional Hamid Taheri, M.D. Shahram Yazdani, M.D. Gastroenterology Felice Banson, M.D. Edward Kim, M.D. Richard Travers, M.D. General Surgery Joseph Farr, M.D. Kenneth Henson, M.D. Internal Medicine Joseph David, M.D. Jae Lee, M.D. Kevin McCarthy, M.D. Nephrology Jeffrey Abrams, M.D. Obstetrics/Gynecology Gina Moore, M.D.

Hematology/Oncology Daniel Katcher, M.D. Alisan Kula, M.D Jey Maran, M.D. Robert Marsh, M.D. Robert Reid, M.D. Ophthalmology Alan Egge, M.D. Charles Hogge, M.D. Pediatrics Diana Chalmeta, M.D. Joshua Jakum, M.D. Plastic Surgery David Allison, M.D. Pulmonary/Critical Care George Bazaco, M.D. Maura Foley, M.D. Kevin Glass, M.D. Richard Swift, M.D. Radiation Oncology Sanjeev Aggarwal, M.D. Radiology – Interventional Douglas Markert, M.D. Adam Winick, M.D. Rheumatology Mohsen Ghafouri, M.D. Thoracic Surgery Joseph Farr, M.D. Vascular Surgery Joseph Farr, M.D.

Fauquier County is lucky to have the best of both worlds – a small, friendly, well-equipped hospital, and some of the best doctors around.

Last year, Dr. Steven von Elten won the Best Doctor award and Dr. Joshua Jakum was chosen the Best Pediatrician.

Virginia Vine History

Virginia Wine Comes of Age Fauquier County Reaping Benefits of Centuries of Virginia Winemaking Challenges by John Hagarty

By the end of 2010, it’s anticipated Virginia will be home to 170 wineries. Here in Fauquier County, twenty bonded wineries are providing citizens and visiting wine lovers a relaxing lifestyle and a healthful libation undreamed of thirty years ago. Simply put, Fauquier may well be on the path to becoming the new Napa Valley if this extraordinary progress continues. This accelerating expansion is all the more startlingly coming from a state known more for tobacco, battlefields and presidents than fine wine. How did it come about? Virginia’s emergence as a promising wine powerhouse has been a long time in the making. About 400 years long. The English colonists, who landed at Jamestown in 1607, recognized the lucrative potential in winemaking. Their new home abounded with native grapes and within two years, they produced their first wine. It tasted awful. Thus began a 350-year trail of tears, as generation after generation of winemakers tried to commercially produce wine in our state. Our forefather vintners encountered a host of problems, not the least of which was the climate, soil, and varied insect life, or what the French call terroir…the “somewhereness” of the fruit’s cultivation. One of the major hurdles that could not be breached was the disappointing aroma and flavor of our native grapes. Yes, they grew in profusion and still do. But achieving anything resembling a quality bottle of wine was not possible. One of the abiding characteristics of indigenous wine is its foxy aroma and taste, or more pointedly, “wet dog” nuances. Taste a cabernet sauvignon alongside a scuppernong and you would not spend a lot of time fermenting the latter. An interesting cultural phenomenon emerged because of this failure to produce wine in Virginia. Our nation was launched on a path of beer and hard liquor consumption. Since fruits, grain and corn were cultivated with relative ease, folks fermented or distilled these agricultural products so as to have an alcoholic drink at hand. Alcohol was consumed in prodigious amounts in our nation’s early history. Think of it as that era’s social libation, plus an over-the-counter painkiller and physic drug cabinet, containing Prozac, Zoloft and Valium. Alcohol was the genie in a bottle and it granted our ancestors many wishes, not all of them good. After the initial failure to produce palatable native wine, French vines were imported, photos courtesy of Boxwood Winery 16

Wine continued from Page 16 followed by French vinegrowers, or vignerons, to work their magic. This time the vines did not even reach maturity before they withered and died. It became apparent wealth was not going to be amassed pursuing winemaking. Instead, the colonists decided to plant a crop that grew like a weed, tobacco. And while it was commercially viable, it also destroyed the land, not to mention countless addicted smokers. Then, in the 1970s, vine growing embraced science and a wine industry began to emerge. One early leader was Dr. Konstantin Frank, a winegrower from New York State who expounded the idea that the delicate Vitis vinifera grape could thrive in the mid-Atlantic region. This species of vine produces all of the world’s most popular wines. The good doctor traveled to Virginia and taught a small 18

group of dedicated growers the methods of deep vine planting, proper root stock selection, correct trellising systems, canopy management, targeted spray programs and a host of other techniques he had perfected in the Empire State. Fauquier County resident Treville Lawrence, who owned an estate in the The Plains called Highbury, was an enthusiastic supporter of Dr. Frank. His experimental vineyards produced some of the first classic Eurasian grape varietals in Virginia. The seeds of success were planted. Based on these early achievements, Virginia began to take tentative steps into the world of serious winemaking. It was a thrilling and scary time for these wine pioneers as they rolled grapes onto the roulette wheel of fine wine production. It was also when the technique of keeping

your fingers crossed while holding a wine glass was perfected. So with today’s vineyard successes, is this end of our story? Not at all. What started as an embryonic industry, with one commercial Virginia winery in 1975, has blossomed into a thriving enterprise with over 3,000 acres of vineyards statewide. The next ten years will see even greater advancement as the caliber and knowledge of our viticulturalists and winemakers deepens. As a result of the efforts in the 1970s, we are fortunate today to be growing numerous classic wine grapes. Two in particular are performing beautifully in both the vineyard and the wine cellar. Let’s take a closer look at the grapes that are enhancing the landscape of many Fauquier County vineyards. Wine continued on Page 20 Warrenton Lifestyle

The grape hails from the northern Rhone Valley in France and is thought to have originated from the Romans who introduced it into Gaul over 2,000 years ago. It was once widely planted in the Rhone Valley but slipped into obscurity as it became more difficult to grow. During the 1960s, there were less that thirty acres of Viognier planted in all of France, a nation with over two million acres of vineyards. The grape was clearly in decline. In the mid 1980s, Joseph Phelps, a California winemaker of wide repute, adopted the vine and anticipated it might be the next Chardonnay, one of the most popular white wines in the world. Unfortunately, it did not achieve the popularity in California he anticipated. Then, about twenty years ago, it was introduced into Virginia’s vineyards. Here, it has taken to our terroir like a kitten to catnip. The wine produces a medley of luscious aromas and flavors redolent with honeysuckle, peach, pear and melon. It can be vinified in oak or crafted in a clean, crisp style that eschews oak

undertones. In either case, its ancient lineage glows with a creamy mouth feel and soft spice finish. It is a wonderful alternative for those drinkers known as ABCers--Anything But Chardonnay.

Cabernet Franc

This grape has been the workhorse of red blended wines for centuries. The majority of appellations around the world use the grape to enhance other classic reds. Since it produces a wine somewhat lighter in color and tannins than Cabernet Sauvignon, many Bordeaux reds contain 20% or more of this grape. It is aromatic with a wide range of flavors centered on raspberry, plum, cherry and spice. And its firm acidity produces a food friendly beverage. The attributes that favor growing the grape in Virginia are its cold hardiness and early ripening traits. Coaxing the best out of a wine grape requires meticulous management of the vineyard. Possessing inherent strong qualities in the vine itself eases the vineyard manager’s work. Cabernet Franc’s qualities are well suited to our state’s soil and climate. In Virginia, many Cabernet Francs are blended with a touch of other reds. For a wine to be labeled the name of a grape, it must contain at least 75% of that specific wine. Often you will find our state’s Cabernet Francs contain a dash

of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot or Malbec. This blending strategy mirrors in reverse the technique used in Bordeaux. As with Viognier, our Cabernet Franc has garnered a host of competition medals and awards. We can count on even finer bottlings in the years ahead as our winemakers learn more about showcasing this wine’s unique character.

Community Events

Safety Awareness Training In Warrenton Brendan King is passionate about self protection skills for women. So far this year his company, Crisis Consultant Group, LLC has presented two free self defense classes to our Warrenton community. A third free class is scheduled for the afternoon of Sunday, May 16, 2010 from 2:00 until 3:30 pm at the Warrenton United Methodist Church (WUMC), 341 Church Street in Warrenton (behind Pizza Hut.) A few months ago, WUMC Associate Pastor Sarah McQueen learned about a frightening incident. A church member’s daughter had stopped to get gas very late at night. After leaving the gas station and continuing her journey home along an isolated roadway, she noticed a car following her. The vehicle then began trying to ram her car! Panicking, she called a friend, who called 911. Instead of driving home, the young woman drove to the parking lot of a busy, well-lit convenience store. Her friend met her there. The guy following sped off, but not away. He was soon being questioned by police. Pastor Sarah explains “This young lady was not harmed, but knowing ahead of time what she could have done differently, or how any one of us could have been prepared ahead of time when threatened came clearly into focus. What if it were me, or you, or a loved one? Would we know what to do? It was this “near miss” incident that prompted us as a church community to respond.” The Fauquier County Sheriff’s office connected WUMC with Crisis Consulting Group, LLC as a resource for safety awareness training information. Although the main focus of this Warrenton based company is effectively 22

defusing potentially violent situations in hospitals, schools, detention centers, and within the work place, company owner Brendan King willingly offered his time and the collective expertise of his employees. For free. The training seminar Crisis Consultant Group designed in response to WUMC’s request is interesting, fun, informative, valuable, useful, eyeopening, and professionally presented. Mr. King makes you think. He offers practical strategies and solutions, and effective and easy-to-use techniques.

“This class was fantastic,” said Marsha, who attended the first free session. “Very informative, very energetic. I highly recommend it for all women. It would also be great to see age specific training, for teenagers, and for women over 60.” “After attending this class, I try to be more aware of people around me. Before, I was clueless.” commented another participant. “It’s important to accept the reality that it’s a violent world out there. Avoid dangerous situations. Think about what you would do. Know what tools you have at hand and how to use them. Prepare to survive and win. And here’s the paradox: It is a converse fact that those who train to protect themselves are the least likely to be attacked,” says Brendan. “Prepare to survive and win. Period.”

If you are worried about not being strong enough, don’t be. Awareness, knowing what to do, and developing the correct mindset are key. And because “practice makes perfect.”, Crisis Consultant Group would love to hold ongoing, twice monthly classes to hone these newly learned skills. “If you don’t practice regularly, it will be gone” reminds Brendan. With that thought in mind, a combination self defense-fitness class is currently in the planning stages. A more advanced training session is offered for a nominal fee as an enhancement to the free class. World Martial Arts Center Grandmaster Kun Hwa Lee generously made his facilities, located behind Sheetz in Warrenton, available for an advanced class held on April 11th, as well as for one of the two free training sessions held in March. Brendan wholeheartedly agrees with the following philosophy, also expressed by Master Lee, and integral to the Warrenton United Methodist Church: People who are interested in the well being of themselves and others create healthy, strong, caring, and thriving communities. Thank you Warrenton United Methodist Church, Crisis Consultant Group, and Master Lee of the World Martial Arts Center for your commitment to our community!

Mental Health

Drug Abuse Prevention Begins With Education by Dr. Robert B. Iadeluca A classic story among advertising executives is that of a company which manufactured a new dog food. To promote this product they pulled out all the stops including heavy TV commercials and newspaper ads but sales were slow. They added radio commercials and direct mail but sales dropped. They lowered the price to no avail. A survey showed them why they weren’t selling their dog food—the dogs didn’t like it. We are talking here about the familiar law of supply and demand. The user makes the determination. Without a desire for a particular product, the producer or supplier is in a losing battle. People these days are putting into their mouths at an accelerating rate products that are not only taking them to emergency rooms, but also to jail and the cemetery. Despite TV and radio commercials, and direct mail warnings, men and woman of all ages, especially teenagers, are choosing to ingest medications that are meant to alleviate physical pain, but instead are causing emotional pain. Fentanyl, Dilaudid, Percodan, Percocet, Vicodin, Oxycodone, Demerol, Duragesic, MS Contin and Roxanol are all are excellent medications when prescribed for specific reasons by qualified physicians. Pain, especially chronic pain, can be unbearable. Medications, prescribed in a hospital or physician’s office and obtained at a pharmacy, bring happiness to one’s life. But illicit drugs stolen from a medicine cabinet, bought on the street, or obtained by forging prescriptions bring only misery to the user, as well as family and friends. Much like fire can either warm a house or burn it down, opiates can be both comforting and dangerously addictive. Under a physician’s careful observation they can alleviate pain. Used in the street by an uninformed teenager, they can lead to death. Why do people continue on the road to destruction and why do suppliers 24

continue to make these pills available at the risk of incarceration despite warnings by clinical psychologists like myself? Back to the law of supply and demand— according to Ralph Waldo Emerson: “If you build a better mousetrap, the world will beat a path to your door.” If you create a product that will do exactly what you want it to do, people will demand it. Various types of drugs, especially narcotics, will give you a “high.” What is a “high” and why do people demand it? Very simply, like most people, they are looking for the road to happiness. Inside the brain are various neurotransmitters, chemicals which transmit messages from cell to cell. The crucial one involved in the creation of “highs” is dopamine. Dopamine is associated with feelings of pleasure whether it is from eating, sex, exercise, or gambling. When a person ingests a drug, such as nicotine in a cigarette, the dopamine level suddenly rises and the smoker receives a rush of pleasure. The power of dopamine is immense. It works well and it works immediately. In other words, the smoker or alcoholic or heroin user receives a quick fix. Everyone wants to experience pleasure and there are many ways to obtain a “high”. Walking or running daily for 30 minutes makes you feel good. Meditating for ten minutes will elevate your endorphins. Praying raises our spirits. These methods are successful in many ways except for one—they take time. We live in a society which demands the quick fix. “I want it and I want it now.” Drugs, especially pain killers, act almost immediately and this is what is demanded by a significant percentage of our population, especially teenagers. Again, the law of supply and demand—to meet demand for instant “highs”, suppliers and distributors are working overtime. In Abuse continued on Page 26 Warrenton Lifestyle

Abuse continued from Page 24 March, thieves broke through the roof of a warehouse owned by Eli Lilly pharmaceutical company and stole $75 million worth of psychiatric drugs. Someone felt that the enormous demand was worth the risk. Drugs (medications) in themselves are not bad. Rather than a War Against Drugs, I suggest educating the potential users who may demand these drugs. This education should begin at home no later than age five and should continue in the schools. An excellent model is the Good Behavior Game (GBG) created at Johns Hopkins University and practiced in the Baltimore City Public School System. This rewards-based program steers 5and 6-year olds away from aggressive and disruptive behaviors which have long been recognized as precursors to many negative adolescent and adult outcomes.

The study found that the GBG was protective against substance abuse and dependency. Fifteen years after the start of the program, researchers interviewed 85 percent of these children, now aged 19 to 21, and found that children who played the game were far less likely to smoke or use alcohol. In 2008, 1.5 million Americans were arrested for drug offenses and 500,000 were imprisoned. Imprisonment does not prevent substance abuse. Skilled treatment is required. Cognitive behavioral therapy is a highly effective treatment and, combined with motivation on the part of the user, can produce a functionally changed brain. Who, then, are we battling? The drug dealers on the street corner? The amateur drug kitchens that manufacture these poisons? The drug lords in foreign countries who smuggle the drugs across the border? Who is the enemy? Walt Kelly, cartoonist creator, has Pogo give

us the answer: “We have seen the enemy and he is us.” If we buy illicit drugs and use them, producers will continue to profit and nothing will stop them. As with the dog food above, if we (and other citizens across the nation) decide not to use illegal drugs, the opium fields will begin to dry up. It’s a no-brainer.

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

Community Awareness

Community Leaders Going Green in Warrenton Highland School and The Fauquier Bank lead the way with LEED certified buildings by George Rowand More than a decade ago, a group of scientists, architects, engineers, developers, builders, non-profit organizations and government agencies got together to develop construction standards that define exactly what designates a “green” building. The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification process is lengthy and precise, and ensures that LEED Green buildings meet a variety of standards for

Above: The finishing touches are being applied currently at the new LEED building at Highland school which will be available this summer and ready for full use in the fall. Below: Stephen A.

environmentally sustainable design, construction and operation. Two buildings in Warrenton – the new Fauquier Bank Building on Lee Highway and Highland School – are on their way to meeting those requirements. Hank Berg, Head of Highland School, recently toured the building that is set to be occupied in the fall. “We started thinking about this building when I got here in 2005 and we had to look at what programs we want to offer, what is going to go into the building. This is the first time that we’ve had the chance to design a building from the ground up,” said Berg. The new building at Highland is destined to educate kids from pre-kindergarten through fourth grades, and the continuing construction projects at the school mean that when all is said and done, the school will gain some needed teaching space. “We currently have one library, one music room, one art room, and one computer room for three hundred and some kids in the lower and middle schools, so we needed more room,” Berg stated. “When I got here, a lot of the programs were dictated by the space we have, and as we move the lower schoolers into here, that will free up a lot of space for the middle school.” The school is aiming for a capacity of 800 students in all three levels. Berg showed off the new building that was still under construction in the middle of March. “We looked at two things,” he explained. “What we are going to design for the way we work with kids this age, and this LEED process. We knew that we felt strongly about doing a green project. I think this is the first LEED school built in Fauquier County.” The new View Tree Fauquier Bank building in Warrenton opened in January. “We won’t receive the LEED certification until the building’s been open for a year,” said Mark Debes, Senior Vice President for retail banking and marketing. “We expect to learn where we stand in the fall.”

Meet the standards

Berg indicated that the commitment to becoming a LEED building had to be made early in the design process. “You determine that you’re going to pay a premium from the beginning,” he said. “But it’s much more expensive if you try to do this retroactively. It’s

Green continued from Page 28 everything from the energy efficiency of the building to where materials come from to the kinds of features you choose for the building.” Berg said that one of the biggest decisions involved the heating and cooling system. “We compared geothermal to the system that we ultimately chose. For us, geothermal was going to be possible, but not easy, given the site. The optimal system for us was one that runs warm and cool water through the whole building all the time so that if the front of the building, which gets more sun, is warmer, you can adjust those temperatures to keep it cooler without running the whole system.” While more expensive than a conventional heating and cooling system, the energy efficiency makes it worthwhile, and every classroom is independently controlled. All rooms also have motion-sensor lights that turn on and off depending on movement in a room. The building was designed to use more natural light without heating up the space. “Over time, that can really reduce your energy usage,” he said. “The payback stream is short enough that you can realize your investment pretty quickly, and it’s the right thing to do,” Berg said. “Our kids all know that this is what we have done, and why we’ve done it, so it provides a teaching opportunity.” For the Fauquier Bank, the decision almost made itself. “When we looked at

what was required to get the certification, we discovered that we were already about 75 percent of the way there, so we decided to go for it,” Debes stated. “Going for the certification did require some tweaking of the construction process. For example, the construction trash had to be separated out.” “It ended up being a nobrainer. In our case, it wasn’t a lot of money difference than building a regular building. It probably cost 3 to 4 percent more than a regular building, and we expect to make that up pretty quickly because it is more energy efficient, ” explained Debes. Debes said that one part of the decision to build a greener building was the inspiration provided by Warrenton Mayor George Fitch. “The mayor has proposed a number of green initiatives, and we wanted to support his ideas. For us, the increase in efficiency probably isn’t as important as the message that we wanted to send.” Fauquier Bank currently has a “Go Green” promotion where customers can earn an additional 1 percent in interest on their checking accounts if they agree to meet a couple of requirements designed Randy Ferrell, President of The Fauquier Bank,

to reduce the amount of paper used for bank statements and information. Berg explained that the LEED process involves earning points for actions taken. “You get points for a whole range of things,” he said. “For every good environmental decision you make, you get points. Here, we are recycling all the waste material so that it doesn’t end up in a landfill. You document that. Some of it can be reused. Some of the materials we used in the school came from recycled materials, so that’s another point. You purchase everything within 500 miles of here so that it doesn’t travel a great distance to get here. And then everything from providing parking spaces for hybrid vehicles to bike racks, those points accrue to you. But it’s primarily energy efficiency over time.” Highland School planned two events to introduce the new building to the community. The first was a business community luncheon on April 22, which was Earth Day. The second is an open house on May 2.

On Education

Homeschooling Offers Unique Opportunity for Education Parents combine family philosophy with traditional methods of learning By Anita L. Sherman

We present the final installment in our ongoing series of columns devoted to Fauquier County schools and education. 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.


Louisa May Alcott was taught by her father and several of his friends including Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Nathaniel Hawthorne. Alexander Graham Bell learned from his mother until the age of 10 when she became deaf. He credits that period in his life as inspiration to later study acoustics and the science of sound. America’s founding fathers George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and John Quincy Adams all learned their letters at home. Chief Justice John Marshall, business magnate Andrew Carnegie, and Generals Douglas MacArthur and George Patton were homeschooled. Homeschooled history makers comprise an extensive list. This is but a sampling. Legal in all 50 states, homeschooling is a viable option that can provide a highquality education. Actually, until the mid 1800s and the push to create public schools, most received their education either at home or through tutors. While homeschooling is now considered a modern term, this form of education has been around for centuries. In Fauquier County, the number of homeschooled students remains low in comparison to those attending public or private institutions. With a student population of 11,250 in the Fauquier County Public School system, homeschoolers represent roughly 3.8 percent. At the end of 2009, according to the Virginia Department of Education, Fauquier County had 425 homeschooled students ranging in age from kindergarten through high school. While up from 266 in 2001, Fauquier’s numbers are still low in comparison to Fairfax County with 2,031, Prince

William with 1,241 and Loudoun with 1,041. Neighboring Culpeper County has 265 and Rappahannock has just 27. While not suited for every student and parent, for those who choose to embrace it, homeschooling can prove rewarding on a variety of levels. Children can focus on specific areas of interest. They can learn at their own pace. Family values and beliefs can be maintained. A student struggling in a traditional classroom might be better nurtured while learning in a home setting. Tana and Tom Jackson have lived in Fauquier County for 11 years. Neither were homeschooled but felt it was an option that would work for them. The decision to homeschool their three children, ages 12, 10 and 7, was mutual and so far, is working out very well. “I’ve been homeschooling for eight years,” said Tana, who uses a curriculum that exceeds what is required of children in the public school system. Tana also has her children tested annually to make sure that they are keeping up with what is expected at their grade level. “It’s for my own peace of mind,” she said. All three children are taking karate and the Jacksons take advantage of sports programs that the county offers. Three years ago, Tana and her mother started Tana’s Kitchen, where meals are prepared ahead for busy families who want to eat nutritionally and sit down to a home cooked meal but don’t have the time to prepare it. Tana’s Kitchen also caters to special needs like foods that are peanut or gluten free. Her business supports her philosophy that families should be able to share a good meal Homeschooling continued on Page 34 Warrenton Lifestyle

Homeschooling continued from Page 32 together. With most of her teaching done in the morning and working the schedule with her mother, Tana juggles the demands of her business and home instruction. Like other homeschoolers, Tana revisits their decision to homeschool each year. So far, parents and children are doing fine. “They enjoy it,” she said.

Homeschooling in Fauquier County Fauquier County’s School Board adopted a policy governing home instruction in 1993. The county recognizes homeschooling as an alternative form of education under the policy of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Parents (biological, adoptive or legal guardians) can elect to provide home instruction in lieu of school attendance if he/she meets one of the following criteria: holds a high school diploma, is a teacher with qualifications prescribed by the Board of Education, provides a program of study or curriculum which may be delivered through a correspondence course or distance learning program or in any other manner, or provides evidence that he/she is able to provide an adequate education for the child.

Notification to the superintendent of your intent to homeschool is required (usually no later than August 15 of the upcoming school year). Children who reach their fifth birthday by September 30 of any given year, up to age 19 are eligible. A description of the curriculum to be followed is also required. While not officially enrolled in school, students also need to comply with the normal immunization requirements. Children who are homeschooled must show that they are learning. Progress is measured through results on nationally normed standardized achievement tests, or through evaluations from a licensed teacher, a person with a master’s degree or higher having knowledge of that child’s academic performance, or from report cards issued from home-based correspondence schools or other academic institutions. If there is evidence that the student is not progressing adequately, a home instruction program may be placed on probation for one year. Parents need to assure the superintendent that educational deficiencies are addressed and a remediation plan is put into place. Home instruction may not be approved after the probationary year if adequate progress has not been achieved. In that event, the parent will need to make other arrangements for the education of the child that complies with the Code of Virginia. If you decide that homeschooling is not working and you wish to enroll the child in the public school system, placement will be determined by the student’s test scores, transcripts from correspondence schools or portfolios of work. High school students may be tested to determine mastery of skills for any given class. Grades and credits will not be given without sufficient documentation. Decisions about grade placement and course credits will be the responsibility of the school’s principal or designee. Homeschooling continued on Page 36

Above: Tana Jackson believes the individual attention she is able to give her children with their studies better prepares them academically. Right: With 12 homeschooled children to their credit, the Koehr family work as team to make each child’s education a special, bonding experience.

Educating on the home front at the high school level has its challenges. It is fairly hard to have a chemistry lab in the basement or provide an orchestra or choir. Due in large part to the advocacy of several families in Fauquier, a policy was adopted by the Fauquier County School Board in September 2002 allowing private and homeschooled students at the high school level to participate on a limited basis in programs offered in the public school system. This option is not offered for students in K-8. But there are limitations. Students must be residents of Fauquier County. Students can be enrolled on a part-time basis for participation in a maximum of two classes per school term. They may participate in a co-curricular activity that is directly related to the class (orchestra, band, chorus, drama, etc.) or in optional co-curricular activities that are directly related to the class (Spanish Club, Math Club, Art Club, etc.). Part-time students may not participate in other extracurricular activities such as sports, including cheerleading and Theatre Festival. In accepting a private or homeschooled student for parttime enrollment, principals will recommend approval or denial by the superintendent based on the impact to class size and whether enrollment would result in the purchase of additional equipment or employment of additional staff. Parttime enrollment is determined annually with no guarantee that it will continue from one year to the next. Part-time students will need to comply with all the policies and regulations of Fauquier County Public Schools. Pre-requisite course requirements must be met as well as taking any tests associated with the course. Class ranking and grade point average are not computed for part-time enrolled students. They will not be eligible to graduate or receive a diploma from the Fauquier County Public Schools. While not donning a cap and gown and graduating with hundreds, there are usually small ceremonies held in local churches for homeschooled students.

It sounds daunting but for Jim and Colleen Koehr, it is a system that has been working for nearly 20 years— homeschooling not one or two but 12 children. Ranging in age from 3 to 24, the Koehrs took on home instruction in the early ’90s. Both educated in public schools, Colleen is a firm believer that regardless of educational structure, parents are a child’s first teacher. “They observe and learn so much from us, why not continue that process as they grow,” said Colleen. Their older children did start out in a traditional school setting but Colleen found that she missed them. “By the time they got home and we were hurrying to different practices, I felt like we were missing out on quality time together.” So, Homeschooling continued on Page 38 Warrenton Lifestyle

Reading articles and attending a conference years ago, Colleen discovered that home instruction was an inviting option and one that she initially did not think would be possible. With the support of her husband, Jim, who teaches at a private high school in Prince William, Colleen has launched on a lifetime of learning and teaching using a classical methodology that enhances the family’s core religious beliefs. “I believe that you can’t separate faith from curriculum, God is at the center of everything that we do,” said Colleen. “This area is wonderful for homeschooling,” said Colleen who takes advantage of the many support groups and opportunities to interact with other homeschoolers in the area. Opportunities abound for shared activities and field trips. The Koehrs have three girls and nine boys with a wide range of interests. Older children have made the transition from home to more traditional structures as they neared high school. One of their sons has appeared in plays at the Fauquier Community Theatre. Going on to college, one of their daughters is now a teacher in Fauquier County. All of the children have been involved with athletics such as soccer, wrestling or lacrosse, and two are outstanding swimmers. While revisiting their decision to homeschool each year, so far, the Koehrs continue to reach the same conclusion. The path they have chosen to educate their children at home has been a blessing and the only choice for them. “We’re happy with the results,” said Colleen. Homeschooling continued on Page 40

Help for Homeschooled Families Warrenton resident Alice Felts, who teaches at Lord Fairfax Community College, recently attended a statewide conference, held in Richmond, focused on the needs of Virginia’s homeschoolers. “The conference provides a large networking experience for parents to meet others (parents and educational experts) experiencing some of the same aspects of homeschooling children. It includes information about group graduations for Virginia homeschooled children as well as a variety of valuable sessions. It also offers a large showcase of educational materials available for purchase. I was really surprised at how many resources are available for parents,” said Felts, who added that for her it seemed to help parents feel connected to a bigger educational effort and not so isolated in the homeschooling process. There was a general feeling of “we’re all in this together.” Created in 1991, the same year that Fauquier County adopted a policy for home instruction, The Organization of Virginia Homeschoolers (www.vahomeschoolers.org) provides a wealth of information to prospective and current homeschoolers. VaHomeschoolers is a statewide, non-profit organization that advocates the protection and promotion of homeschooling freedoms at the state and local level. They offer a toll-free homeschool help line as well as an email-homeschool help desk. They provide information on homeschool conferences and seminars throughout the year. Connecting to other homeschool families, homeschooling a special needs child, planning a high school curriculum or surviving preschool pressure are just some of the many topics you can research with their help.

Home Educators Association of Virginia (HEAV) offers articles, forms, free newsletter and magazine, event listings. They have served all of Virginia’s homeschoolers through information, legislation and resources for 22 years. Phone: (804) 278-9200 or info@heav.org. Home Organization of Parent Educators (HOPE) is a non-profit Christian organization committed to equipping and encouraging parents of all faiths to better serve their homeschools and families. HOPE serves families in Prince William, Fairfax, and Fauquier Counties. Phone: (703) 791HOPE (4673) or HOPE-HS@bsafemail.com. REACH Homeschool Group serves a wide group of counties including Fauquier, Prince William and Culpeper with information on field trips, meetings, workshops and activities for a wide range of ages. They average about 35 field trips a month, put on a convention, and year-end book sale. Contact Wanda Sloper at sloper4@adelphia.net or (540) 423-9501. Fauquier Home Educators is a clearinghouse of homeschooling information for families in and around Fauquier County. Only members can post messages to the group.

In Simple Words

NO LONGER R EFOR M BU T L AW AVOID DISCUSSING POLI T ICS A ND R ELIGION This is standard advice that most wise mentors will give any protégé. However, this long standing cliché could be revised to include health care. Nothing can be more divisive in mixed company than a robust discussion on health care. Yet during the past year, few of us could resist a discussion with our family, friends, and colleagues on the subject. Our country debated vigorously back and forth about the health care proposals before Congress. And now, after prolonged controversy, these landmark legislations have been turned into law. First, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), HR 3590 was signed into law by President Obama on March 23, 2010. Second, the Health Care and Education Tax Credit Reconciliation Act of 2010, HR 4872 was signed by the President on March 30, 2010. Looking past the more than 2500 pages and trillion dollars in spending, what do these new laws mean to most of us as we live our daily lives and navigate

our own health? How will our lives be affected? Should you be concerned? Most policy experts agree that the new law is light on cost containment. Little has been accomplished to actually abate the skyrocketing cost of health care. Therefore, it is unlikely that we will see the proclaimed “death-panels” limiting our care or making it more difficult to receive care. You and your physician remain largely in charge of your medical decisions. In fact, the law specifically allows you to select your in-network primary care physician. Meanwhile, many of the undesirable standard practices of insurance companies have been addressed: Insurance companies

by Steven G. Cosby, MHSA patient will have access to their claim file. Finally, your dependant age children will be able to remain on your employer’s health plan until they are 26 years old. The most significant accomplishment of the new law is the establishment of National Health Care Plan, a.k.a. “The Exchange.” It is estimated that 32 million people will have insurance that never had it before. Some of these newly insured will be the result of generous government subsidies and others will be mandated by the government. But those already with coverage will be affected, too. One of the better things about this new law is that many of its provisions are gradual, giving us some time to

I T IS EST IM AT ED T H AT 32 MILLION PEOPLE W ILL H AV E INSUR A NCE T H AT NE V ER H A D I T BEFOR E . will no longer be able to terminate your health plan when you get sick; they can no longer discriminate against children with previously existing medical conditions; and they can no longer make unilateral d e c i s i o n s about their rate increases. In sura nce companies that deny claims will have to establish an appeals process and the

adjust. Some provisions are stretched out over the next 8 years. For a timeline summary of the law please refer to the adjacent exhibit. Make no mistake, this new law will affect you and your family in the way that you pay for your health care. On the upside, new benefits like free preventative care will now be mandated and health plans will no longer have annual benefit limits or lifetime maximums. Seniors will find their Medicare “donut hole” closing and therefore reducing the amount they pay for prescriptions. Many small businesses will be offered tax credits Healthcare continued on Page 50

Healthcare continued from Page 48 to help make coverage more affordable for their employees. And people who are older, or sicker, will likely find their premiums reduced because the law restricts how much their premiums can vary from the young and healthy. On the downside, those who have avoided paying health insurance premiums will now be mandated to purchase health insurance or pay a penalty tax. The previously mentioned “free” benefits will not be so free—reduced premiums for the old and sick will be financed by higher premiums for the young and healthy. This premium shifting is sometimes referred to as price fairness or guarantee issue. A recent article on April 9, 2010 on CCN Money. Com illustrates one story of a healthy individual seeking an affordable health plan. In New York City where they have fair pricing regulations and in Arizona where there is no such regulation the price difference was $1200 vs. $300 per month respectively. In another example, the president of Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield Southwest, Burke King , presented that a healthy 40-year-old female living in Virginia would pay a premium of $100 per month, but in Maine, where guarantee issue regulations are the law, she would pay $365 for a similar health plan. There are several new minor taxes imbedded in health plans that insurance companies will predictably pass onto you. Medical expenses currently eligible for reimbursement, such as over-thecounter medicines and medical devices, will be ineligible expenses. One example: as early as 2011, Flexible Spending Accounts will no longer be able to reimburse for over-the-counter drugs without a prescription. For those who have already committed funds for their 2010-2011 plan year, or who will soon, this is an important point to consider. 50

And yes, there will be that infamous “Cadillac tax” for those individuals with very expensive plans: 40% excise tax on plans with premiums greater than $10,200 for individual coverage and $27,500 for family coverage.

cover your employees. Finally, much criticism came during the health care debate regarding the length of the health care bill and how so few had actually read it. There are some interesting, but not well publicized,


If you have a business, know that all your employees are individually mandated to have coverage by 2014. Offering an employer-sponsored health insurance plan will likely satisfy this federal mandate and help them avoid any fines or penalties. If you offer health insurance but one of your employees receives premium-assistance tax credit to buy coverage through the exchange, your company can be penalized up to $2000 per employee on all your employees. As an employer, you may not be specifically mandated to insure your employees, but both you and your employee may pay a penalty if you do not have the minimal health insurance. There are several new federal compliance issues for employers. For example, beginning in 2012 employers will have to include on employee’s W-2 the value of the health insurance coverage sponsored by the employer. If you are a small employer with less than 50 employees you will likely avoid most penalties and you may be eligible for subsidies or grants to encourage you to

features of the new law that may affect you. One is a provision known as the Class Act, which will establish a national long-term care plan in 2011. The provision requires that all working adults be automatically enrolled in the plan unless they voluntarily elect to opt-out. Another provision is the new power given to the Office of Personnel (OPM) over the insurance exchange and how it negotiates with insurance companies, potentially giving it, and its boss, the President of the United States, authority over approximately 17% of our economy. Something to think about. Finally, regarding the mandate to have health insurance there is “Subpart B- Eligibility Determinations 5(A) Religious Conscience Exemption”: People of a qualifying religious sect may opt out of the mandate. Politics and religion again! I can’t seem to avoid these topics even in discussions of health care. I guess there is no safe haven.

The Builder

Sticks and Bricks and the Emotional Homeowner QUESTION:

Jennifer M. from Warrenton asks,

“I am planning a kitchen renovation and it all seems so stressful. Is this normal?”

ANSWER: Tim Burch Jr., CR, President, Burch Builders Group, Old Town Warrenton, VA. Past President/ Chairman, National Association of the Remodeling Industry, Metro DC

In the industry we often refer to a remodeling or construction project as an emotional rollercoaster ride. Someone who has never lived through a construction or remodeling project may not understand this theory. Many think a building project involves only “sticks and bricks”. “A Rollercoaster Ride like a construction project?” Just as a roller coaster ride, the life cycle of a construction project has many slow climbs and fast free falls. There are designs, material selections and specifications and costing scenarios, this is all before the project even starts! Most of the time we are working in our clients homes while they are living there. As builders, we not only plan the project, but try to anticipate our client’s emotional state as the project moves forward. Most seasoned builders know when and how their clients are going to emotionally react to the project during different milestones. A building project is organic; each day is different and brings about emotions like excitement and fear. Here is a typical client emotional state during a project: There is another factor that can affect a building project that many even in our industry overlook, and that is the client’s emotional state outside of the project. Especially in today’s environment, times are stressful enough without a construction site for a home. Maybe someone has had a bad day at work, is having health problems or experienced a death in their family. All of these emotions will affect a building project. Think about it, if you just had a bad day at work would you want to come home to a house in mid construction and talk about schedules with your builder? I’m a builder and I would not want to! Unfortunately, if you are planning on a remodel or building project, this is reality. As builders we are used to being yelled at when we have done nothing wrong and most of the time this is a result of an outside emotion that a client is experiencing, having nothing to do with the project. As a homeowner, it is important to be patient and try and compartmentalize your project, keeping it separate from the stress or emotions of everyday life. If you can do this, your project experience will be a happy one instead of a stressful one.

Ask the Builder/ Designer is a regular feature. Please submit your homeowner questions to info@ burchbuildersgroup. com and stayed tuned for answers in a future issue. 54

Talk to your builder, ask he or she how the construction process will unfold. I recommend deciding on as many material and design specifications as possible before the work begins, this way there are no surprises. Also plan a once a week status meeting with your builder. Try and get all of your interactions and discussions about the project done at that meeting so you are not reliving or second guessing a decision you have made later. Ask your builder to only call you at work if it is absolutely necessary. Hope this helps Jennifer and good luck with your kitchen project! Warrenton Lifestyle

I stay up on all the latest information regarding short sales and home loan modifications. Did you know that there is a new program to help homeowners go through the short sale process that require lenders to release future liability from debt?

Only one business closed in the last month, Tadpole Café was another casualty of the slow economy. Dharma & Leopold’s on Main Street is having a moving sale and will be closing its’ doors on May 29th. They are relocating outside of Fauquier County. We have a couple of businesses on the move, Drab to Fab Designs and Art Studio has moved from Third Street to Lee Street because they needed a larger space. Their summer sessions are posted on their website and are now accepting registrations. Check www.drabtofabdesigns.com for more information. Be Boutique is moving and has vacated their current space and I am hoping to see them back on Main Street soon. Wise Driving School is coming to the Opal area and plans to offer driver improvement clinics, both classroom and online, along with classroom drivers education for teens and adults. Amy Griffin is the owner of inFauquier.com, a comprehensive online directory of consumer businesses located in Fauquier County. Maps to all the businesses can be found at inFauquier.com and check out the What’s New page for more business happenings in the entire county.
