‘The King & I’ Brings Musical Pageantry to FCT Stage By Dixie Walters
Fauquier Community Theatre will end its regular season in royal style with the staging of the classic Rodgers & Hammerstein musical, “The King and I.”
film version. And even casual theatergoers may be able to sing a few bars of “Getting to Know You,” one of the best-known songs from the production.
The Tony Award-winning musical is a unique love story that defies the usual formulas. It revolves around a headstrong English governess who becomes a tutor to the royal children and numerous wives of the equally strong-willed and rather misogynistic King of Siam. Although he’s in favor of bringing a Western perspective to his kingdom — or so he thinks — the king (played by Dan Purcell) and Anna (played by Chantal Campbell) clash when their respective cultures and values bump up against each other. The friction ultimately leads to a simmering chemistry between the two as the exotic and heartwarming story ensues.
Pomp and Circumstance
“Anna is not afraid to push her agenda, and that was unusual for the time,” says Susan Noé, the play’s director. “Her character is also a single, widowed woman who has to support herself and her child, which was also highly unusual.”
Roots in Reality
An intriguing aspect of the story is its grounding in reality. The play is loosely based on the 1944 novel, “Anna and the King of Siam,” which draws upon the real-life memoirs of Anna Leonowens, a British schoolteacher who served as governess to the children of King Mongkut of Siam (now known as Thailand) in the early 1860s. Fans of the theater and classic movies may recall Yul Brynner’s starmaking performance as the king in both the 1956 movie and various theatrical versions. Brynner won both an Academy Award and a Tony Award for the role. Actress Deborah Kerr memorably played Anna in the
As director, Noé oversees a cast of approximately 40 actors and dancers ranging in age from 5 to 60. The play is interspersed with musical and dance numbers, including “some that are very specific to Siamese dance, which we want to honor,” says Noé, who credits the efforts of musical director Larke Pain and choreographer Sandy Steinmeyer. Also noteworthy is the elaborate costuming required to make the court of King Mongkut come to life. Noé, who is adept with a sewing machine, also took on costuming duties, along with several assistants. She has served as costumer for numerous FCT productions, including “A Christmas Carol,” which she also directed, “The Music Man,” and “Into the Woods,” which she also produced. Still, she says that the exotic and ornate costuming needed is a challenge on a community theater budget. Another challenge is fitting the large cast on the relatively small FCT stage, along with several live musicians. Cast members have also worked hard to assimilate the mannerisms and speech patterns of the play’s cultural environment. Noé is hoping all the pomp and circumstance will pay off in mesmerized audiences. “We’re hoping the audience feels as if they’ve traveled to a foreign country and are in the middle of the court of King Mongkut,” says Noé. “We just want to surround them with pageantry, music and dancing that’s different than what they’re used to seeing.”
The play, which is suitable for all ages, will be presented May 3, 4, 5, 10, 11, 12, 17, 18 and 19. Curtain time is 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. on Sundays. An adult ticket is $17; senior citizen and student tickets are $15. Tickets can be purchased online at FCTstage.org. A combined ticket of $38 for seniors and students and $40 for adults to see the show and enjoy dinner at The Inn at Vint Hill is available for the May 19 performance. 6

Horsin’ Around Town by George Rowand
Sometimes it’s subtle. You’re at the DMV in Warrenton, renewing your license. You look up, past the clerk, and your eyes see a photo of three horses on a bright wintry day, heading for a workout. You’re in the grocery store, and you notice a woman in front of you. She is wearing her riding outfit. Or you are driving down a country road in Fauquier County, and off to the left of you, you notice a young horse being taken over a small jump by his rider. And sometimes it is so obvious that it smacks you right in the face. You’re in line at a store in the early spring, and you overhear, ‘Have you got your outfit for the Gold Cup? Are you wearing a hat?’ Or you come around a curve on a country road early one fall morning to find yourself confronted with a field of riders in their pinks, hounds baying and horses following behind. The fox hunt is in full stride. Or you are looking for something to do on Saturday night in the summer, and a friend calls to ask, “You going to the polo matches?” One thought should go through your mind when all these things happen: “I live in Fauquier County … horse country.” Frankly, it’s often difficult to go anywhere in the community and not be confronted by some aspect of the equine world. From foxhunting to polo to horse shows to steeplechasing … it’s all here.
Tally Ho What is the appeal of foxhunting? “The appeal is to be out in the countryside on a horse,” said Kim Nash, joint master for the Warrenton Hunt. “You get to see parts of the countryside that you would never see on your own two feet, not just the beautiful land, but you get to see how a hound works, and you get to see animals like foxes and coyotes. It’s a passion, there’s no question about it.” “This is the center for foxhunting,” said Marion Maggiolo, owner of Horse Country in Warrenton. “I think that there are 26 hunts in Virginia right now, so, pound-for-pound, they call it Mecca.” Horse Country is starting its 43rd year in business. The boutique specializes in attire and gear for the horse person. “We provide everything for the English rider,” Maggiolo explained. We carry everything for the stable, but my real forte is the hunting attire, and we bring that in from England. It’s made for us. It’s our patterns, and we’ve been doing this a long time. We started specializing in foxhunting in 1985. We get customers from all over the country, plus England, Canada and Australia.” horsin’ around continued on page 10 8

“Plus, horse people seem to live longer. Some of them seem to live forever. The game keeps you going, I think.”
Under Starter’s Orders
Of course, there are numerous and regular steeplechase races in and around Warrenton. From the end of February through the first Saturday in May, you can hardly swing a dead cliché in Warrenton without hitting a race meet, and the topper, of course, is the annual Gold Cup at Great Meadow. This year marks the 88th running of that prestigious race.
Real estate developer and philanthropist Bob Sowder said that he got into racing for his health. “I’ve been doing this since I got my pacemaker when I was 49 and I’m 75 now,” Sowder said. “The doctor told me to get a couple of hobbies, so I got a fishing boat and two claimers. I love it. I used to farm with draft horses. I never had a tractor at home, and so I’ve always loved the horses and been around them all my life.” One of Sowder’s runners, Pagan Priestess, won last year’s Maryland Million stakes race for fillies on the turf. Another – Silver’s Prospect – ran in the Preakness a few years back where he encountered some bad racing luck. No matter, Sowder said. “I’ve had a very profitable year, and I’m 75, and everybody needs some reason to get out of bed in the morning,” he stated.
“The Gold Cup is pretty special, said Diane Jones, executive director of the Virginia Gold Cup Association. “It’s on everybody’s radar. People look for something fun to do, and this is easy. It’s a part of the fabric of the community.” Crowds average in the 45,000 to 50,000 range. Already people are calling about this year’s meet, Jones said. Some are pretty funny. “One guy called and said, ‘I just noticed that it says, No Pets Allowed.’ I said, ‘That’s right,’” Jones related. “It’s just not the place to bring dogs or … anything. We had one person bring a miniature pig. He said, ‘Well, that’s kind of a problem. I’ve rented a puppy.’ ‘You rented a puppy?’ ‘Yeah, it’s a known fact that they’re chick magnets, and if I have this puppy, all the girls will come to me.’ I said, ‘If you need a puppy to get girls to come to you, you may want to take another look in the mirror.’” Puppy or not, this year’s meeting could have a new feature … legalized wagering. “This year we’re going to have a type of pari-mutual wagering,” Jones said. “We’re still working out the options on that. The biggest challenge has been getting wifi at Great Meadow. We need wifi that is just for wagering, and not for cell phones or games, and we think that it is possible.” The International Gold Cup runs in the fall. Jones said that the day of racing carries a lot of appeal for local residents. “At the Gold Cup, we get a lot of people from the metropolitan area. It’s like a Spring outing, and we get a lot of college kids because schools are out, and it’s their time to play,” she said. “The International Gold Cup is not as big as the Gold Cup, but most of the local people love it because you can actually go there and see a lot of people that you know. It’s not as crowded. It’s more low-key. Same racing. Same good horses, but different crowd.” The trophy for that race is famous. “ It’s the lovely King of Spain trophy, which was donated by the King of Spain,” Jones explained. “He gave it for the race before the Spanish Civil War in the 1930s.”
Fancy a Chukker? Polo is played in a wide variety of places in the county, and the game appears to be getting more and more popular. “I think there are around 15 polo fields in the area,” said Rob Banner, president of Great Meadow Foundation. Great Meadow decided to feature polo at its facility, and the appeal cuts right across the demographics of the community. horsin’ around continued on page 12 10

Twilight Polo begins this month. Meet your friends and family there for a lively Saturday night.
horsin’ around continued from page 10
“Twilight Polo was the model we formed some 20 years ago in our arena,” he explained. “We decided it was a great way to teach polo and from the popularity, it seems that it’s a great way to teach people how to watch polo.” “The crowds that we get are very diverse,” he added. “You see people with a bucket of chicken and a six-pack, and you see people with a butler and a nice tailgate. We turned the event into an evening party. It’s like you’re going to a party, and hey, a polo match broke out. So people come … families, young ones, old ones, polo community patrons, and young ingenues from DC. You always see someone you know, and everybody seems to blend and bond well.” The matches are held on Saturday evenings from early May until early September. The price is $30 for a carload of people. Banner said that there is an early and a late crowd. “After the young ones run around and have the tug-of-war, their parents seem to take them home, and another crowd arrives, the young adults who want to dance because it’s the only place to dance in the Middleburg, Upperville, Warrenton area,” he explained. “After the last match, we start the DJ, and the pavilion stays rocking until 11:30 or so. It gives the young adults a place to hang out, and it’s good because there’s no alcohol served.”
Show Me Longtime Warrenton resident Betty Oare remembers the first time she appeared at the Warrenton Horse Show. “I’ve been going there forever,” she said. “I think the first time I ever set foot on the Warrenton Horse Show grounds was for the pony show in 1956. We were living in North Carolina, and my Dad decided we would come up and participate in some of the shows in Virginia.”
After a tough start on her tour, Oare wanted to go home. Her father felt otherwise. “We went over to the Warrenton Horse Show, and it was wonderful,” she remembered. “We kept coming back for several summers before we ever moved to Virginia to do the big circuit … Staunton, then the Homestead, then Deep Run and it would end over Labor Day at the Warrenton Horse Show. At that time, that was one of the biggest circuits in the country. We did probably at least six or seven years of doing that before we ever came to live permanently in Warrenton.” A board member of the show, Oare said that one of the features that she finds charming is the local flavor it exudes. “So many of the shows across the country are great, but they don’t really have that local aspect like Warrenton has. People look forward to coming there and bringing their horses,” she said. “Being down there on Saturday night or Sunday night, it’s standing room only. It’s like tickets to the Redskins. To get your parking space around the ring, it’s like you have to inherit them.” Oare said that she feels that the community being behind the event has created an extremely attractive environment. “It is a great, fun event to go to, and I look forward to going to it every year,” she stated. “The community really gets behind it, and you see a lot of friends there. It’s really a wonderful event for the horse people and for the Warrenton community.” Horses. It’s part of who we are. It’s part of our collective history and it surely will be a part of our collective future. Trying to explain to somebody where you live, you can always say, “Warrenton … you know … out in Virginia’s horse country.” That usually pins it down for them.

Spring Cleaning: Holistically People like “stuff.” We tend to hold on to it year after year. We save and stock up on things that we don’t know what to do with anymore. Maybe we keep things because they hold precious memories of days gone by, or they remind us of our parents, grandparents, past loves or childhood. To part with these precious possessions seems out of the question. There is a saying that goes, “you have to get rid of the old to make way for the new.” If you’re feeling stuck or stagnant in your life, try spring–cleaning. Throw out some of that “stuff,” say goodbye to your past and welcome the new energy of your happy, healthy future. For good mental and physical health, we actually have two “houses” that need to be spring – cleaned: our physical homes and our physical bodies. Just as we accumulate
“stuff” in the form of outgrown clothes, magazines, books, rusty bicycles, tools and random keepsakes, so do our bodies. They accumulate old food residues and toxins that need to be cleaned out. To spring clean your body, give it a break from rich and complicated foods by either cleansing or fasting for a short period of time. Cleansing means paring down your food to just simple fruits and vegetables, lots of water and perhaps real whole grains. Fasting means limiting most foods and drinking lots of water, fresh vegetable and fruit juices, teas and soups. Without much energy going toward digestion, more energy is available to the rest of your body and mind. Cleansing and fasting can sharpen your concentration, help you gain insight and promote spiritual awareness. It can also bring
improved immune function and better digestion. A trained health counselor can help you decide what type of cleanse is specifically for you, such as: a gentle focus on the main seven organs, a liver cleanse, Candida (typically you crave sugars and or breads) or a parasite cleanse. They also provide support for you through the cleanse to offer maximum benefits, without flu like symptoms that can accompany some cleanses if not taking basic precautions. With cleansing - just as with diets, everyones needs are individual. Another great way to rid your body of toxins is through exercise. And it’s not all about sweat: when you engage in physical activity, your circulation increases, which in turn activates your lymphatic
system, a network of vessels that filter waste products out of the body. Any type of exercise can spur this process, but yoga enhances it by incorporating folding and twisting movements which gently massage your organs and increase blood flow, combined with deep breathing leads to release of residual toxicity. While you’re cleaning out your body and home, don’t forget to spring clean your heart. Throw away negative thoughts and habits you’ve been harboring that no longer serve you. A clean, open heart will allow you to receive all the good that awaits you each and every day. If your heart and mind are cluttered, there is no room for life’s little gifts and surprises.

In the aftermath of the Newtown shootings, there have been both national and local conversations about how to prevent such tragedies. The one thing everyone seems to agree on is that we need to ensure better access to mental health treatment. Part of the local discussion in response to Newtown took the form of a regional conference on Community Safety and Mental Health, hosted by Rappahannock Rapidan Community Services and co-sponsored by the Mental Health Association of Fauquier County on March 20, 2013. This discussion about the relationship between mental health and violence revealed that we still have a long way to go to bring mental health fully out of the shadows. Clinical Psychologist Dr. Jeffrey Aaron from the University of Virginia shared results of a recent survey showing that 75% of respondents think persons with mental health problems are violent. The facts, said Dr. Aaron, simply don’t bear out that perception. “We tend to give more weight to things we’ve heard often, and news stories about mass shootings, etc. [that] affect our sense of prevalence.” In truth, individuals with mental illness who receive treatment are no more dangerous than the general population. That means that the key to preventing crises is early identification and treatment of mental health problems, yet fewer than half of individuals who have a mental illness get the help they need. As in many parts of the country, lack of access to mental health treatment is a critical issue here in Fauquier County. One of the biggest problems is that we have an underfunded public mental health system trying to cope 16
with an increasing need for services. The Behavioral Healthcare Clinic in Warrenton, operated by Rappahannock Rapidan Community Services (RRCS), is often the only option for individuals who don’t have sufficient resources to seek private treatment. Owing to funding limitations, the Clinic actually has fewer therapists than it did 37 years ago, which means long waits for people seeking outpatient treatment. Currently the wait time for adults to get services at the clinic is 3 to 4 months, and children must wait 1 month or longer. At any point in time, RRCS has 450 people in the region waiting for services. The Mental Health Association, which provides information on mental health issues and helps Fauquier residents find appropriate treatment and
support resources in the community, has documented that by far the most frequent dilemma cited by callers is a lack of resources and the inability to get into affordable services at the Clinic in a timely manner. These delays in access to treatment can have serious and even life-threatening consequences for individuals, their families, and the community at large. If not treated, mental illness can lead to despair and even self-harm. Each year in this country we have 38,000 suicides, twice the number of homicides. A study published in the American Journal of Public Health in 2012 finds that suicide has now surpassed car accidents as the number one cause of injury-related death in America. And here in Fauquier, the help continued on page 18 Warrenton Lifestyle

suicide rate has exceeded state averages in recent years. Given that people often have to overcome the powerful stigma still attached to mental health issues to even ask for help in the first place, a long wait time to get into treatment means that many individuals give up before getting help. Not only do delays in the treatment of mental illness put individuals at risk and in some cases result in public safety concerns, but also put pressure on other community services, resulting for instance in increased Emergency Room visits and hospitalizations as well as increased incarcerations. The ripple effect caused by long waiting lists has been documented across the community. In 2011, the Fauquier Health System conducted a Community Needs Assessment, which ranked access to mental health services as one of the top two health concerns in the county. Fauquier has seen a 30% increase in the number of persons experiencing mental health emergencies in the past four years, many of whom end up in the local hospital emergency room. During the same period, there was a 68% increase in psychiatric hospitalizations from this area. The Fauquier Partnership for Community Resources, a coalition of 150 non-profit organizations, human service agencies, faith organizations and local businesses that has been meeting monthly for the past 15 years has also identified timely access to mental health services as one of the top issues in 2013, affecting clients and providers across the full spectrum of the community. In late March of this year, a broad group of representatives from both the mental health system and the criminal justice system in Fauquier and Rappahannock counties came together to talk about concerns, gaps in services and ideas for working collaboratively to bridge
those gaps. The number one priority identified by every group present? Reduce the waiting time to get into the services offered by Rappahannock Rapidan Community Services. The impact of long delays getting treatment is clearly felt by the Fauquier Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office, the Warrenton Town Police Department, local jails, local probation offices, and local court services, not to mention those who end up in jail when that outcome might have been prevented with early intervention and treatment. In 2012, more than half of the inmates in the Fauquier County jail had mental health issues. In fact, the Department of Corrections is one of the largest providers of mental health services in Virginia. The Mental Health Association of Fauquier is especially concerned about the need for early identification and help for children and adolescents, as is Fauquierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s School Health Advisory Board. A recent survey of youth in Fauquier indicated that 30% or more reported having had symptoms of depression, 75% of whom did not receive treatment. Early intervention can turn a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life around, can avert tragedy in some instances, and can positively affect the whole course of a mental illness. Strong schools are able to identify at-risk children and have specialized staff to work intensively with them. Fauquier County schools have made great strides by training staff, offering anti-bullying programs, and providing suicide prevention training for students and staff. The Mental Health Association of Fauquier County, through its Catching Kids in Crisis campaign, has worked
collaboratively with Fauquier Public Schools for the past 6 years to increase mental health supports for students, using private contributions to fund a parttime Mental Health Specialist position to work with the most atrisk students at all grade levels. Those supports have had a major impact, providing intensive help to more than 55 students and families per year, and piloting efforts such as a program to help children and adolescents with extreme anxiety develop coping strategies and return to regular participation in their school. Fauquier has many strengths when it comes to addressing mental health concerns, including a strong private provider community, and a growing awareness of the need for action. The Fauquier County government is currently working with Rappahannock Rapidan Community Services to explore possible solutions to the wait time problem, and Fauquier County Public Schools are considering the addition of a fulltime position to target the students who are at high risk due to mental health issues. Given that one in four adults (of all ages, races, income levels, and genders) has a diagnosable mental illness, and one in five children has an emotional issue that affects his or her daily functioning, chances are that most of us have encountered mental health challenges involving ourselves, our families, our friends or our colleagues. And we can all be part of the solution by advocating for strong services in our community and by encouraging people we know to seek treatment when needed.
Sallie Morgan has served as Executive Director of the Mental Health Association of Fauquier County since May 2011. Prior to that she supervised a wide range of Mental Health, Intellectual Disability and Aging programs for Rappahannock Rapidan Community Services. Ms. Morgan also chairs the Aging Together Partnership in the region.

Warrenton’s Stuyvesant School Part 2: The school excels in athletics and academics, but falters financially by John T. Toler
In Part 1, Edwin B. King established the Stuyvesant School in 1912 at the site of present-day St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church and School on Winchester Street. For years, the school was an important part of the community. But by 1945, failing health caused Mr. King to enter into an acquisition arrangement with Clark C. Copp, Donald A. Williamson and Frank H. Limacher. The partners formed a new corporation, Stuyvesant School Inc., with Mr. Williamson as headmaster.

Stuyvesant Acres No longer encumbered by the responsibilities of running the school, in 1946 Mr. King began selling lots in the open 80acre tract between Winchester and Waterloo streets once used for the school’s sporting events. Mr. King had a plat prepared that subdivided the property, known as “Stuyvesant Acres,” in 1937. Members of Warrenton’s older families, as well as newcomers, bought lots in the development. It was served by a network of new streets with names like Roebling, North, Forbes and of course, Stuyvesant. Among those purchasing lots were Ted and Molly Portnoy, Edwin Bain, Philip Nelson, John Wright, Russell Herring, L. J. Foley, Elizabeth Powell, Oden Price, Moffett Mills and Mary Forbes Colket (nee’ King). Mme. Lea Bouligny, headmistress of the Warrenton Country School, also had a home there. Keith N. Fletcher, Clyde Compton, and others purchased commercial properties fronting on the Warrenton Bypass.
The new Stuyvesant Copp and Williamson made significant changes to the Stuyvesant School, and from outward appearances, it seemed to thrive. Enrollment when they acquired the school was 45 students; it would grow each year. In order to involve faculty, alumni and supporters, the corporation established the 12-member Stuyvesant School Foundation, tasked with guiding the school’s growth and development. Among those who served were the Rev. Paul D. Bowden, Mrs. Elvira Clark, C. Reed Thomas. Representing the school were Copp, Williamson and Robert F. Graley. Stuyvesant was in great need of a new gymnasium/auditorium, and in 1949 the foundation and Headmaster Williamson came up with a plan for a new building. Measuring 82 ft. by 61 ft., the new gym had space for a varsity basketball court and two practice courts on the main floor. Downstairs were dressing rooms, showers, boxing and wrestling facilities. Completed in early 1950, the gym cost about $35,000. In addition to the students at Stuyvesant, the gym was made available to the community “…for programs of civic interest,” according to the Democrat. There were also plans for an outdoor swimming pool and other recreational facilities, but they were never built. For the 1949-50 school year, enrollment reached 80 students, with 60 boarders and 20 day students. Nineteen students came from foreign countries, the majority from South America and the Caribbean. Two came from Siam (Thailand), and one from Persia (Iran). Stuyvesant’s foreign students “…spoke before numerous civic groups, churches and schools, describing life in their own countries and their reactions to the United States,” according to a July 21, 1949 article in the Democrat. “These goodwill programs, which proved very popular, climaxed with the broadcast over stations WINC and WRFL-FM in Winchester.” 22
A fire of undetermined origin destroyed the main building at Stuyvesant School on the afternoon of Feb. 16, 1946. It was later rebuilt as a concrete block structure. The original Stuyvesant house, at right, was saved. The Fauquier Democrat.
Advances in athletics, reputation William K. “Pop” Kays was one of the boys from Warrenton enrolled at Stuyvesant in 1948. Previously, he was a junior at Warrenton High School, where he was the captain of the football team and president of the sophomore class. However, Mr. Kays had a falling out with the football coach and quit the team. A few days later he ran into Headmaster Williamson, who offered him a football scholarship at Stuyvesant grad William ‘Pop’ Stuyvesant. “Mr. Williamson Kays recently visited the site of made it clear that he wasn’t the school. The old bell now rings recruiting me, but I was through for students at St. John’s School. playing at Warrenton anyway, and I accepted,” said Mr. Kays. Mr. Kays played for Stuyvesant in his junior and senior years, before graduating and going on to the Virginia Military Institute at Lexington. He notes that three of his teammates – Robert “Rabbit “ Downs, Bennie Cockerille and Paul “Muddy” Lunsford – attended Stuyvesant as postgraduates, having already graduated from Warrenton H.S. The coach at Stuyvesant at the time was Enrico Cipolaro, a graduate of Yale University who also taught science. In addition to tuition, the boys got lunch every day. “It was a great school,” recalled Mr. Kays, who now lives at Dunbarton, in Bristow. “The students were very close, especially with the foreign students, and there were never any discipline problems.” Although the student body was relatively small, the football squad had 22 players, and an undefeated season in 1950, “… while playing some much larger and better known schools like Fishburn Military Academy, Manassas High School, Gaithersburg High School and Landon Prep,” recalled Mr. Kays. “It was hoped that through its athletic program the school would gain a lot of publicity.” stuyvesant school continued on page 24 Warrenton Lifestyle

In addition to football, other athletic activities listed in the 1950 Wooden Shoe, the Stuyvesant yearbook, were basketball, baseball, track and horseback riding. One of the other high points at Stuyvesant was the graduation ceremony held on June 1, 1950, which featured Alben W. Barkley, vice president of the United States, as the keynote speaker.

Mr. Barkely accepted the invitation to speak through the efforts of Senate Majority Leader Scott Lucas of Illinois (D), whose son Scott Jr. was a student there, and U. S. Rep. Lowell Stockman, of Oregon, father of William J. Stockman, also a Stuyvesant student. “Quite an honor for a little school out here in the country,” recalled Mr. Kays. In 1952, the keynote speaker at the Stuyvesant graduation ceremony was State Senator Harry F. Byrd Jr.
Final years Despite the outward successes, every year Stuyvesant School Inc. was falling deeper in debt, and in September 1953, Mr. Copp died.
In September 1954, Woodstock attorney Richard Wright, representing the Copp estate, announced that the school would not open for the fall term. He claimed that several financial plans were under consideration, and that the school might reopen after Christmas.

Stuyvesant did not reopen, and the buildings stood vacant for the next three years, becoming the target of vandals and a public nuisance. Neighbors complained, and County Sheriff Sam Hall was asked to increase patrols of the area. At issue was the $80,000 owed by the school to the First National Bank of Woodstock. Foreclosure proceedings were started, and the 11-acre property sold at public auction on June 20, 1957. Originally offered in three tracts, the winning bidders were Mr. and Mrs. F. C. Stover of Woodstock, who picked up the entire property for $46,000. The Stovers quickly found a new buyer: the Catholic Diocese of Richmond. St. John the Evangelist Catholic Parish had outgrown its c. 1860 church on Lee Street, and the congregation wanted to start a Catholic school in Warrenton for their children.

Keynote speaker at the 1950 graduation was U.S. Vice President Alben Barkley (left), shown speaking with Sen. Scott Lucas (D-Ill.), then Senate Majority Leader, and his son, Scott Jr.
By the end of 1958, and Bishop John J. Russell of Richmond and Parish Priest Fr. Robert E. O’Kane signed papers purchasing the property for $52,000. Much work needed to be done, but it was a good fit. St. John’s School, offering kindergarten through fourth grade and administered by nuns of the Benedictine Order in Bristow, opened for the 1960-61 school year. Classes were held in the refurbished main building and the gym. The old mansion house, by then in decrepit condition, was torn down in August 1962. Under Fr. Vincent Campi, work started on a new church building in 1964. The first Mass was held there in 1965. For those with an attachment to the old Stuyvesant School, its present uses are appropriate, if not comforting: the site became the consecrated ground of a church, and a school where generations of children have come to learn.
Stuyvesant’s tradition of achievement For a small school, Stuyvesant graduated students who went on to accomplish a wide range of great things. Following is a small sample: Dr. Jim Bakhtiar, football star Jamshid “Jim” Bakhtiar (b. 1935) was a student at Stuyvesant in 1949-50, a time of great changes in his life. Jim had left his hometown of Abadan, Iran in 1946 to get an education in America. He lived in Washington, D.C. with his mother, learned to speak English, and became interested in football after playing in the Washington Boys Club. stuyvesant school continued on page 26 May 2013

Jim’s mother sent him to Stuyvesant in 1949, and after a year, he returned to visit his father in Iran. It was then that he realized his life goals: to be an All-American football player, and to become a doctor and help people. Back in the U.S., Jim was a standout football player at Western High School in Washington. His ‘JIM’ BAKHTIAR coach saw great potential, and got him a football scholarship to the Bullis School. While playing against the University of Maryland freshmen team, he was noticed by a University of Virginia coach, who offered him a football scholarship. By the time he graduated, Jim held many ACC records, playing on the All-ACC first team in 1956 and 1957, and being named an All-American by the Football Writers Association. Having met this first goal, he made plans to enroll in the UVA Medical School. To make enough money to get started, he played one season in the Canadian Football League, where he also broke records. Jim graduated from the UVA Medical School in 1963 with a degree in psychiatry. In 1974, returned to Iran, where he started that country’s first modern psychiatric unit. However, during the Islamic Revolution in the late 1970s, he was arrested and jailed. After being released, he fled with his family to Turkey, and eventually back to the U.S. Arriving in Charlottesville with virtually nothing, the Bakhtiars were taken in by their friends at the University until they could get back on their feet. Today, Dr. Jim Bakhtiar continues his psychiatric practice in Martinsburg, W.Va. Walter Wells Piethch II, designer A student at Stuyvesant in the late 1920s, Walter W. Piethch II (1913-1993) went on to the Maryland Institute in Baltimore, earning a degree in design and mechanical drawing in 1933. His first job was as a junior draftsman for the Chrysler Corp. He moved up quickly, and his first project was designing an experimental small car known as the “Star Car. From Chrysler, Piethch continued his design work at Hudson Motor Cars (1940WALTER W. PIETHCH 44), Briggs Manufacturing (1944-47), Ford Motor Co. (1947-50), and then briefly back to Chrysler. 26
Piethch then went to work for the famous designer Raymond Lowey, who was responsible for all Studebaker styling, including the classic 1953 C and K bodies. When Studebaker ended its contract with Lowey in 1955, Piethch stayed on with Studebaker, but by 1958 the company was in dire financial condition and he was laid off. He went to work briefly for Montgomery Ward, designing water heaters, air conditioners and other industrial products. Piethch got back into automobile design in 1959. After spending a year with American Motors, he returned to Studebaker, working on design of the successful compact Lark models. However, the Lark was soon outclassed by the competition, and when Studebaker management refused to heed Piethch’s advice that the Lark be totally redesigned for 1962, he resigned. Piethch then went back to Chrysler, where he designed the interiors of new models until being laid off in 1970. He took a job at American Motors, but found himself working for Chrysler again after the two companies merged. His last assignment was designing the instrument panels for the AMC Jeep Wagoneer models. He retired in 1972, but his health began to fail. He died in Everett, Washington in 1993. Donald Roebling, unlikely hero Remembered as just an average student at Stuyvesant, Donald Roebling (19081959), Class of 1926, was later honored as the inventor of the amphibious assault vehicle used by the Marine Corps during World War II. “There could be no less likely a Marine Corps hero than Donald Roebling… the rotund, eccentric inventor of the amphibian tractor,” wrote Maj. Richard Roan in Roebling’s Alligator: the origin of the Assault Amphibian. “He is rightly credited for making a DONALD ROEBLING decisive contribution to his nation’s victory in World War II.” Roebling, scion of the family that built the Brooklyn Bridge, came to Stuyvesant in 1918. Remembered as spoiled, strongwilled and temperamental, he showed little interest in academics during his eight years there. While most of his former classmates went on to Ivy League colleges, Roebling went to live with a cousin in Florida, where his father, John A. Roebling II, set him up with a construction company. But it was his interest in mechanical things, at first just a hobby, where he would make his mark. After a 1928 hurricane ravaged Florida, Roebling realized that many lives could have been saved if rescuers had been able to reach the isolated victims sooner. This belief was shared by his father, who challenged Donald to come up with a machine Warrenton Lifestyle
that could bridge the gap between a tactical vehicle and a boat. With his father’s financial backing, Roebling went to work, and between 1935-37 developed a series of designs, each better than the last. The final version, the Alligator IV, caught the interest of the Marine Corps, which ordered a military prototype. By November 1940, Roebling completed a vehicle that met the military specifications, and in February 1941 signed a $3.3 million contract to build 200 of the new Alligators, known as LTV-1s. He contracted with the Food Machinery Co. in Dunedin, Fla., to build them. With the outbreak of World War II, the demand for LTV-1s was great. By the end of the war, over 18,600 LTVs had been built in five factories. Donald Roebling was presented the Medal of Merit signed by Pres. Harry Truman in 1947, and a Certificate of Achievement from the U. S. Navy. He returned to private life, continuing his family’s philanthropic work in Florida. He died in August 1959, following gall bladder surgery. Richard Archbold, adventurer The beneficial connections that came about in later years between former Stuyvesant students was demonstrated in the life of Richard Archbold (1907-1976) who went on to become a famous aviator, adventurer and early environmentalist. Grandson of John D. Archbold, who had succeeded John D. Rockefeller as president of Standard Oil Corp., Richard
attended Stuyvesant in the early 1920s. His first experience in ecological surveys was an expedition into Madagascar in 1929 under the auspices of the American Museum of Natural History. This was followed by three more expeditions into New Guinea in the 1930s, where thousands of animal specimens were collected for the American Museum, and many new plants for the Arnold Arboretum. Archbold came to Florida in RICHARD ARCHBOLD 1941, where he established the Archbold Biological Station on the 1,050-acre Red Hill Estate, near Lake Placid. The property was given to Archbold by John A. Roebling II, father of his fellow Stuyvesant classmate Donald Roebling, with whom he had stayed in touch over the years. With its diversity of natural habitats, the site was perfect for ecological field studies. Buildings on the property were converted to laboratories and other facilities, and valuable research was done there under Archbold’s leadership. He died at his home at the Archbold Biological Station in 1976. Since then, his legacy continues as the station has been expanded, adding thousands of acres of leased and managed properties, conducting important research, and receiving grants from the National Science Foundation for continuing studies.

Addiction is a brain disease expressed as compulsive behavior. It begins with using drugs, including alcohol, voluntarily. It is a preventable disease. Due to a combination of environmental and genetic predisposition, a threshold is crossed. Drug use causes permanent cellular changes. A compulsive craving overwhelms all other motivations. The craving cannot be stopped by sheer will. Relapses are common. Addicts cannot control their compulsive drug craving even when accompanied by negative health and social consequences. Genes do not doom one to be an addict. Individuals differ. With those who have this incurable disease, recovery through psychotherapy is possible.

LYME DISEASE AWARENESS MONTH Here in the heart of the Piedmont region, Fauquier boasts a wonderfully comfortable mix of agriculture, industry and tourism. We enjoy the benefits of a superb place to live, to raise children, and have, for many of us, a great place to retire and enjoy the fruits of a challenging career. What’s wrong with this picture? The growing epidemic of Lyme Disease! In recognition of this problem, a local group of Lyme sufferers formed the Warrenton/Fauquier Lyme Disease Support Group in 2005. The group is particularly concerned with supporting patients, helping people find information, minimizing the risk of tick bites and raising public awareness of the threat of tick-borne diseases. What is Lyme Disease? It is an illness transmitted by the bite of a black-legged tick infected with the spirochete bacterium Borrelia Burgdorferi. It is a multisystemic illness, and is the most common vector-borne disease in the United States. Complicating this infection may be coinfections such as Babesiosis, Ehrlichiosis, Bartonella, Tularemia, and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. Unfortunately, co-infections may require different treatments and may be the cause of continued symptoms after being treated for Lyme. What can happen after a tick bite? There may be a “bulls-eye” rash. Some of the early-stage physical indications include flu-like symptoms, achy joints and muscles, fever, headache and fatigue - the list of possible symptoms is quite extensive. Severity of symptoms may be exacerbated by the condition of the patient’s immune system and his/her gene makeup. The length of a person’s illness may be as short as a month or as long as a lifetime. This illness may affect a child’s ability to learn and/or develop. Adults may suffer from memory loss, ability to concentrate, to walk, or talk understandably. We have Lyme patients in our group who have given birth to children with Lyme Disease. Some in our group have lost their jobs, because of the extensive medical cost and some have lost their homes. These are just a few of the various problems we encounter in our monthly meetings. 32
Testing issues. Testing for Lyme is not always definitive. Lyme Disease tests look for specific antibodies; people vary greatly in their ability to produce those antibodies, so they may not be present in early stages of the disease. Based on a negative test for Lyme Disease, a person may be told that he or she does not have Lyme; and then at a later date the test may be positive. If Lyme Disease is not diagnosed and treated at the early stage, it can become chronic, and thus harder to treat. Consequently, the person may be misdiagnosed with other illnesses, become increasingly ill, and face daunting medical bills. NOW FOR SOME GOOD NEWS: Recognition of Lyme Disease is growing. In our own state in 2010, the Governor formed a Lyme Disease Task Force to research and recommend solutions to the Lyme Disease problem. This task force surveyed the state of Virginia and found problems in testing and diagnosis, incidence reporting, insurance coverage, prevention, stages of tick development and most importantly, that this disease is at epidemic proportions. Virginia has taken action. On March 13, 2013, the Lyme Disease Testing Information Disclosure Act was signed into law by Governor McDonnell. It requires that patients being tested for Lyme be informed that current testing can produce false negatives, particularly in the early stages of the disease. The Warrenton/Fauquier Lyme Support Group remains steadfast in compassionately supporting Lyme sufferers as we also endeavor to increase awareness of this epidemic. In 2009, we became 1 of 16 chapters statewide of the National Capital Lyme Disease Association (www.natcaplyme.org). Our support group participates in a wide array of activities including the Fauquier County Fair, Warrenton Festival, the Home and Garden Show and several additional health fairs. We also support Lyme Disease awareness efforts in surrounding counties. Look for our information table and our roving brown tick at the Warrenton Days Festival on May 18th. If you or someone you know suffers from Lyme Disease, please feel free to come to one of our meetings. We meet the 3rd Thursday of each month at 7pm at the Warrenton Church of Christ, 6398 Lee Highway Access Road. If you have questions or just need to talk, you may email Joyce at email@example.com.

Tales from the Coach by Liz Casazza
Monroe Limousines’ 1987 Cadillac stretch limo at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Washington, DC. This was the first limo Mark Monroe owned.
What do Paul McCartney, Marlo Thomas, Rod Stewart, Frank Sinatra, Eddie Van Halen, Jimmy Buffet, Johnny Cash, and Goldie Hawn have in common? All have been passengers of Warrenton’s Mark Monroe. Mark Monroe has spent the last 38 years providing limousine and upscale coach transportation to rock and roll legends, movie stars, political dignitaries, news executives and corporate leaders. Most definitely an interesting life! Monroe drove one of the first stretch limousines registered in Washington, D.C.—a 1978 Lincoln Town Car and purchased one of the first cell phones available in 1984 for $2,400. Monroe paid by the minute on his cell to be able to communicate with his clients who called him from pay phones. Prior to cell phones, limo drivers worked with twoway radios. After high school Monroe served for four years in the Air Force as a military police officer. After finishing his tour in the Air Force in 1975, he decided that he wanted to pursue a career driving limousines and joined a limo company in Crystal City. “In those days all limos were black and made by Cadillac. There were no stretch limos,” Monroe shared. “The fee for limos was $15 per hour. Drivers made $5 per hour plus tips. Most limo drivers were in their 50s and 60s—many were former cab drivers. I was one of very few young men who drove limos,” he continued. Who was the first big celebrity you drove? “Marlo Thomas,” he replied. “I picked her up at National Airport and took her to her hotel in the mid-70s. She’s a very nice person.” During 1977 through 1979 Monroe provided an interesting mix of transportation services to make ends meet. “I did a lot of work for Cellar Door Productions in the late ’70s driving bands in the evenings and I transported corpses for a funeral service during the day,” he added with a smile. 34
Monroe’s list of passengers in the late ’70s reads like a Who’s Who in rock and roll. They include: ● ● ● ● ● ● ●
The Grateful Dead The Rolling Stones Paul McCartney The Who Kansas Ted Nugent Rod Stewart
● The Outlaws ● Bad Company ● Fleetwood Mac ● Emerson, Lake & Palmer ● David Bowie ● Yes ● The Village People and many more.
“I would go from city to city, drive to the airport, pick up the band, take them to their gig, and then back to the airport,” Monroe explained. “Although there was a crazy party scene going on in the late ’70s—most of the major performers really cared about their craft and were very serious about the quality of their performances. The people around the performers were much more immersed in the crazy party scene than the performers themselves,” Monroe shared. I asked if one performer stood out in his mind more than others. Without any hesitation Monroe replied, “Paul McCartney. He was very personable, very gracious, and very appreciative. I remember driving him from FedExField to BWI Airport in 2009. He stopped at the front of the coach, thanked me for driving him, and then got off the coach and signed autographs and had his picture taken with fans at 2am. I was very impressed.” Who were the funniest passengers? “Without a doubt Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis were the funniest,” Monroe replied. “I drove them in the 1980s. They bantered back and forth joking and poking fun at one another throughout the entire trip just as they used to do on stage. Although Dean Martin usually accompanied them—he was unable to join them for this performance.” Warrenton Lifestyle
Who was the classiest passenger? “Lauren Bacall,” Monroe answered. “I drove her a few times and she was a very classy lady. Another favorite of mine is Goldie Hawn, originally from Silver Spring, Maryland. Goldie Hawn is an extremely nice person. I drove her several times from the airport or her hotel to visit her family in Silver Spring,” he continued. Who were the most interesting passengers? “I found Johnny Cash and June Carter to be the most interesting passengers I have ever driven. Johnny Cash was a true southern gentleman—the genuine article. There was a great love between the two of them, [it] was very powerful and evident. I drove them for a week in the mid-70s when they played a theatre in Maryland,” Monroe shared. In the early ’80s Monroe purchased his first limousine—a 1980 black Cadillac—and began to provide transportation for ABC News executives and political dignitaries for a DC-based limo company. During the Iranian hostage crisis he drove the hostages’ family members back and forth for their interviews on Nightline. “These were very difficult, emotionally charged times for these families not knowing what would happen to their loved ones. They were very brave,” Monroe stated. In addition, he drove senators, congressmen, mayors, government officials, Fortune 500 company executives, editorin-chief of The Washington Times, lobbyists, and the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka’s entourage. White House meetings and dinners, as well as embassy parties, were all part of Monroe’s regular routine. Were there any politicians who were favorites of yours? “I liked Lee Atwater, political consultant and advisor to Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, a lot. He was a very nice, approachable guy who loved rock and roll. Senator Malcolm Wallop of Wyoming, leading conservative voice in Congress during the Reagan administration, was another favorite of mine. Also, I enjoyed driving Arnaud de Borchgrave, editorin-chief of The Washington Times, and his wife. They socialized with President and Mrs. Regan often,” Monroe replied.
as if you were our own family
The mid-80s were landmark years for Mark Monroe. He started his own limo business and appeared in his one and only movie. Monroe was the limo driver of the 1980 black Cadillac in the Goldie Hawn movie Protocol. “That was my 15 minutes of fame,” he shared with a smile. I was curious as to what Monroe enjoyed most about driving limos and upscale coaches. “I feel very fortunate to have met so many interesting people in my life. Driving made this possible. I would never have met most of these people without the career country coach continued on page 36 Mark Monroe’s first purchased coach that seated 56 passengers.

I chose,” Monroe said. “I am not a nine-to-five kind of person and this definitely is not a nine-to-five job,” he continued.
Member of the Warrenton Fire Department and serves as a volunteer firefighter/EMT.
What are the keys to being successful as a limo or coach driver? Mark replied, “You have to be a very relaxed, very safe driver so your clients are relaxed and comfortable. There should be no intensity—just an atmosphere of relaxation no matter what is going on. Also, you need to adhere to strict confidentiality. You don’t share what goes on in the limo or the coach with others.”
In January Monroe’s coach served as a command post for the Secret Service for four days during President Obama’s inauguration. Just another one of many interesting assignments that are part of Monroe’s storied career.
In 1991 Monroe sold his house, his business, and his limos and moved with his wife and two children from Falls Church to Fauquier County. For two years he drove 18 wheelers up and down the eastern United States and into Canada for J.D. Newman, a local trucking company in Elkwood, Virginia. “I liked driving trucks but not the trucker lifestyle,” Monroe commented. “I was away from home too much and my wife and kids needed me at home. I learned a lot though about driving big vehicles and handling a lot of weight on the road which was beneficial.”
Why the name Country Coach? “I worked at Country Chevrolet selling cars for two years in the late ’90s. One day while I was moving cars at the dealership a stray dog wandered up from Lee Highway. My family and I rescued him and named him Country after Country Chevrolet. He was a beloved part of our family and my life for many years. I named my business after him,” said Monroe. I am certain that somewhere in heaven—Country is wagging his tail.
For five years during the ’90s Monroe drove for Franklin Motor Coach based in Fairfax and also for Scenic America. “I have always enjoyed the people factor in my career and I was glad to reconnect people with transportation services again,” Monroe stated. In 2002 Mark Monroe started a new upscale coach and livery service business of his own. Today, Mark Monroe continues to do what he loves—driving people where they want or need to go. He is the owner/operator of Warrenton-based Country Coach (www.countrycoach.net ). Also, Monroe is a Lifetime
In 2008 Mark Monroe drove a group of ten wounded veterans for Seg4Vets (an organization that has given more than 1,000 segways to disabled veterans) from Washington, DC to the Pocono International Raceway in Pennsylvania for a day trip to the Pocono 500.

Fauquier Health Fauquier Hospital Opens New Interventional Radiology Suite If you have cancer, blocked arteries or veins, fibroids, back pain or thyroid disorders you may be diagnosed or treated with interventional radiology — a medical specialty that uses X-rays, MRIs, CT scanners and other imaging technology. Many conditions that used to require surgery are now treated by interventional radiologists, who insert catheters and other small tools into the body through small incisions. The physicians use imaging technology to guide the instruments. Interventional radiology is less invasive, making recovery easier and faster than traditional surgery. Most patients who receive this type of treatment in a hospital can go home the same day. In March, Fauquier Hospital debuted a new state-of-the-art interventional radiology suite that is giving physicians the ability to perform procedures using even more intricate, detailed information. The new suite is equipped with full body fluoroscopy imaging technology. Fluoroscopy is a type of medical imaging that shows a continuous X-ray image on a monitor, much like an X-ray movie. It is used to diagnose or treat patients by displaying the movement of a body part or of an instrument or dye (contrast agent) through the body.
Dr. Adam Winick, interventional radiologist
During a fluoroscopy procedure, an X-ray beam is passed through the body. The image is transmitted to a monitor so that the body part and its motion can be seen in detail. Dr. Adam Winick, interventional radiologist at Fauquier Hospital, said, “The new software and hardware moves faster, provides clearer images and uses less radiation to do it. Anything that makes it easier and faster for me to perform a procedure, that’s better for patients.” The new imaging equipment allows physicians to use CT scan and X-ray images for guidance, from the same table. Fluoroscopy images are dynamic, moving images that allow physicians to calculate the depth of a needle insertion and how to move instruments in the body. Dr. Winick explained, “The new equipment is more accurate and the images are sharper. There are many different procedures – complex cancer treatment procedures, arterial and venous studies to improve flow, procedures in the digestive tract, fixing fractures in the back – that we can perform because of the increased detail provided by the state-ofthe-art imaging equipment .” Interventional Radiology Procedures Interventional radiologists use various imaging techniques to perform the following procedures. • Destroying cancerous tumors by heat or freezing techniques • Blocking blood vessels to cut off blood to a tumor or arrest a hemorrhage • Dissolving blood clots to treat or prevent stroke or deep-vein thrombosis • Clearing a carotid artery and installing a stent to prevent stroke • Placing a feeding tube into the stomach of a person who is not able to eat
The new interventional radiology technology at Fauquier Hospital allows physicians to work faster and more accurately – and that’s good for patients. 38

Warrenton homeless man reflects on life’s gifts by Christopher S. Lieb
here is a saying, “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it,” which is arguably cliché and justifiably corny but very true all the same. Then there are those times when something has got to break for us to appreciate what we are trying to fix in the first place. This is where I come in. The complex reality of simplicity, if you will. This is the part where you ask yourself, “Does he have a point or is he just blowing smoke?” So without further ado... Hi, I’m Chris. Welcome to my world. Please don’t take me out of context and take every word with a grain of salt. This is a true story. I have a job, people who care about me and a place called home. Things were not always like this; a few years ago I was homeless. It was not your boardwalk-three-string-guitar-playin’, give-me-your-spare-change homeless, but more of an eviction notice and pack your trash bags because we are going to the shelter. There is no dancing around it, I was broke with no where to live. Oddly enough being homeless was the best thing that had happened to me thus far. 40
These shelters, or at least the one I was in, are very strict. The rules are important as they become the dummy’s guide to being a functional member of society. When you check in, they search your person and belongings for guns, street drugs, knives, prescription drugs and anything that could be used to harm yourself as well as others. The rule book is, more specifically, a list of things that you cannot do -- in essence a “three strikes you’re out” scenario. In addition, there is a disclaimer for urine tests, breathalyzers, and curfews. Afterwards, a form is then presented to you stating that you have 14 days to become employed or you are out on the street again. With my trash bag in one hand and the rule book in the other, I was off to my room assignment. I say room but it is 4 walls, a mattress and a trash can. Obviously not enough room for morning Pilates or a game of Twister but a roof over my head. There are 2 sinks, 2 showers and 1 kitchen for over fifty people. Nothing says “good 99 days continued on page 42 Warrenton Lifestyle

morning” like an anonymous hair in the shower drain. I can’t forget the spiders so large that when stepped on, they look at you funny, get up and shake it off. Anyway, here we are sober, sleepy, and in search of employment. These next fourteen days were quite frankly a life or death situation. I was against the world, down by one in overtime. I was ready to call it quits, throw in the towel and chalk this life up to a loss. I cannot express in words the absolute importance of the following fourteen days. The average person with their life ahead of them would think nothing of 2 weeks of time. However, my mentality was, ‘it cannot get any worse and 2 weeks is a lifetime.’ I set out for a job or anything that would give me some hope. “I think I can, I think I can,” was simply not cutting it for me. The realization of a park bench settles in after twelve applications and no positive responses. (All employers are staring at my tattoos and not even giving me the time of day; feeling doomed before I even walk through the door, no chance at getting a chance.) This is a fact not a complaint. It is almost curfew at 9 o’clock, I’m running back to the shelter. The last thing I need is strike one for breaking curfew. As the countdown continues, I run past the porch to sign in. I passed moms that might be more concerned about their next nicotine fix than their next meal. I was starving at this point but remembered that the kitchen closed at 7 o’clock. Although I am completely ecstatic about bologna,
and not the good stuff like Oscar Meyer, I decide to call it a night. I go to my room, curl up and dream about food stamps and the dinner that never was. I was awarded 1 hour of television the first weekend. I was amazed to see a room full of grown men thrilled to be watching The Lion King. One would have thought it was a Bruce Willis marathon or something a lot more exciting. We only had Disney movies available because parents would plop their kid in front of a movie and go job hunting. Apparently the television makes a pretty decent babysitter. So here we are sitting around watching Timon and Pumba prance around and loving every second. It sounds sad but it was something to look forward to each week. At the shelter, a cheesy flick is medicine for the soul. This routine became scripture as the days went on and routine was in turn a stepping stone for progress. I managed to get a job on the thirteenth day. Twenty-four hours before the park bench and selfdestruction. I officially had purpose in my life again. A GPS had successfully been installed in my lost soul. I now saw the path and I was proceeding to walk it. The days of attention seeking kids and television babysitters were constant reminders of better days. Also, having a source of income made the possibility of making it on my own not so farfetched. In 3 months, 1 week and 2 days I was proud of the person I had become. I arrived in May and signed the lease for an apartment in August. I was in the shelter for 99 days and May was the month that went on and on. Those 99 days in May felt like the longest segment of my life but the most hope I had ever had. I am
thankful for every minute and would not change anything if I had the chance. We all know that breaking stuff is easy; it is fixing it that seems to be the tricky part. Picking up the pieces is worth its weight in gold. It was once said, “All’s well that ends well.” Personally, I know my journey is not over yet, taking things as they come and working out the kinks will continue. I can tell you this much, enjoying the ride seems to be a lot more significant than the road you are traveling. I do not know it all, but more than I did before my stay at the shelter. The next time you come across a homeless guy asking for spare change, think about this story before you tell him to get lost. Remember that park benches, shower drain hair and bologna (without a first name) are all the ingredients to a recipe for success. I hope your life lessons are as meaningful as mine. Please try to smile, be nice and enjoy the ride. In retrospect, life isn’t so bad. We only get one the last time I checked so don’t take it for granted.
This article is dedicated to my father, Stephen A. Lieb, who passed away 2 months after we left the shelter. 42

Retirement Planning for Your Business by Nicholas Sicina
Simultaneously invest for your retirement and the future of your business through an employer sponsored retirement plan. Establishing a retirement plan for your company helps to successfully align the long term goals of the business, with those of your employee’s. This serves to fortify business relationships, elevate moral in the workplace and foster the long term growth of all interested parties. Furthermore, benefits can help to attract talented prospects as you look to expand and/or lock in key employees that play an integral role in the success of your company. Before moving forward, it’s critical to have a thorough understanding of all of the benefits, limitations, and obligations of each plan and how they relate to your objectives. Here’s where to start…
Which Plan is Right for You? In order to determine which retirement plan is best suited for you, it is important to establish a list of priorities. For example, take the following questions into consideration. How much money would you like to be able to put into your plan on an annual basis? How much, and on what basis, would you like to contribute on behalf of your employees? What are the costs and administrative responsibilities of implementing a plan? Do you or your employees have a need for an education savings vehicle that allows for potential growth over time? For the purpose of this article, let’s take a general overview of some options that are available. As we delve into the world of retirement planning for businesses, please know that we are only scratching the surface and a thorough discussion with a trusted professional is highly recommended. The Savings Incentive Match Plan for Employees (SIMPLE IRA) Looking for a little flexibility to the employer contribution component of your plan? The SIMPLE IRA has two options for you to choose from. One is an employer match on the lesser of the employee’s salary deferral or 3% of the employee’s compensation. This option requires the eligible employee to participate in the plan in order to receive and benefit from the employer’s match. The second option would be a 2% employer contribution to all eligible employees based on their compensation regardless of whether or not they actively participate. The maximum an employee can contribute to a SIMPLE IRA in 2013 is $12,000 plus the employer match which differs based on their respective level of compensation. There isn’t any complex paperwork or IRS filings involved and the employer contributions are tax deductible for your business. The Simplified Employee Pension Individual Retirement Account (SEP IRA) In stark contrast to the SIMPLE IRA, the SEP IRA only has an employer contribution component. In other words, there is not an option for an employee to make payroll deducted contributions. Also, the same formula is applied to all eligible retirement continued on page 48

participants when determining the contribution percentage. For instance, if the owner of the business wants to put 15% of their earnings into their SEP, they must also contribute 15% for all eligible employees based on their respective compensation levels. The maximum allowable contribution is 25% of an eligible employee’s earnings, not to exceed $51,000 in 2013 for any one participant. Contributions are discretionary and may change from year to year. This plan is most popular with sole proprietors or businesses that operate with one or only a handful of key employees. In order to be eligible to participate in this plan, employees need to be 21 or older and have been employed either part time or full time in three of the last five calendar years. The 401(k) Come’s in all Shapes and Sizes Most commonly referred to when discussing retirement plans, the 401k affords great flexibility to both the plan sponsor and participant. The 2013 limitation for plan contributions by employee salary deferral is $17,500 plus an additional $5,500 catch-up contribution for those over the age of 50. In addition, the employer has the option to make contributions on behalf of the employee, up to 25% of the eligible participant’s total compensation. However, this component may range from a matching percentage, non-elective or straight profit sharing contributions. The allocation of employer profit-sharing contributions can be skewed to favor older employees, if using the age-weighted and new comparability features. In addition to contribution flexibility, there are multiple 401(k) plan types that have evolved over the years. The Safe Harbor, Roth, and individual 401k’s share the same fundamental elements as their namesake but offer unique features. Individual circumstances will determine which 401k plan type is most appropriate for you. Generally, 401ks may have greater administrative obligations and tax filing requirements to keep them compliant which could raise the cost of their implementation. Get a Handle on Rising Education Expenses A cost effective way for an individual to participate in a 529 college savings plan is through the employer sponsored option. Moreover, there isn’t any cost or administrative obligation on behalf of the employer to establish the plan. Whether you’re a sole proprietor or an employer of 50, you can institute an employer sponsored 529 for your business. Within the 529, all growth or earnings on principle over time are tax exempt provided the monies are used for higher education. This includes but may not be limited to
a college or university, community college, or even a vocational school. If the funds are not used in this manner than a 10% penalty may be imposed, barring extraordinary circumstances. The beneficiary of a 529 is easily transferable amongst direct family members. Also, there aren’t any geographic restrictions as to where the beneficiary can attend school. Furthermore, contributions are state tax deductible to Virginia residents participating in Virginia plans. With the cost of education on the rise, these plans make excellent savings vehicles to help stay ahead of the game. Please consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing in a 529 savings plan. The official statement, which contains this and other information, can be obtained by calling your financial advisor. Read it carefully before you invest. Non-qualified withdrawals are subject to federal and state income tax and a 10% penalty. An investor should consider, before investing, whether the investor’s or designated beneficiary’s home state offers any state tax or other benefits that are only available for investments in such state’s 529 college savings plan. 529 Plans are subject to enrollment, maintenance, administrative and management fees and expenses. The investment return and principal value of the investment options are subject to market risk and will fluctuate, and when sold, may be worth more or less than the original cost. Final Thoughts Whether you’re looking to secure key employees or attract fresh talent, your company’s benefits program plays a vital role in that process. Remember to make sure the plan you select is in alignment with your objectives and that you firmly understand the obligation your business is undertaking. To determine if the plan you may be considering is truly the best fit, seek the advice of a trusted professional to help thoroughly examine your situation. Invest in both your future and the most important asset contributing to the success of your business, your employees.

tuning-in throughout life by Dr. Robert Iadeluca
One of the first things I remember at the age of five shortly after my parents and I moved out to rural Long Island was my father stringing up the radio antenna to the pine tree about 50 feet away. Small table top radios with built-in aerials did not exist at that time. In fact, our radio, a Ware Neutrodyne, was a comparatively large one with four dials. It was battery operated as we did not have electricity in our house at the time. In order to bring in Station WEAF (the forerunner of WNBC in New York City) one had to set each of the four dials at different specific numbers and they had to be set exactly. If not, rather than hearing the expected program one might pull in the dots and dashes of Morse Code transmitted from someone who had a frequency close to that of WEAF. My father, a totally disabled veteran from World War I, had been in the Signal Corps and could probably understand what was being sent. I, of course, could not but that moment would arrive in the near future. My father had brought home a complete training kit – a sending key, a receiver, and a tape which when hooked up to a battery emitted the sounds of code on which I practiced. He taught me the proper way in which to hold the sender with the thumb and two fingers of the hand and by the time I was six, or earlier, I was sending him messages. We had fun sending and receiving “secret” messages as my mother did not understand Morse Code.
We did not have a loudspeaker but we did have a set of earphones. This was convenient if only one person wanted to hear a program but if all three of us were interested, the earphones were placed in a large soup bowl to amplify the sound. Throughout my growing up years I listened regularly to such programs as Lone Ranger, Little Orphan Annie and Sherlock Holmes and in my later years suspense shows such as The Shadow and Inner Sanctum. There were also quiz shows, game shows, and audience participation shows. For listeners of a more serious bent, there were dramatizations of classic novels and historical documents. Putting it simply, radio was the center of the home, whether it be entertainment, music or news. When I was about ten years old, with my father’s occasional guidance but mainly on my own, I constructed a crystal radio. This was a device which included a fine wire, known as a “cat’s whisker,” that one moved slowly across a crystal. If one was very, very careful, one might (just might) be able to detect either a local station or static. Living 50 miles away from New York City, the nearest location of any station, I would spend hours occasionally successfully bringing in static through my earphones.
man operation. He sold tickets in the winter, started a fire in the coal stove, and kept the station orderly. One of his primary responsibilities, however was keeping in contact with other stations along the Long Island Railroad through Morse Code. I was not allowed in his private place, but through the window would listen to the dots and dashes and try to decode his messages. Later at the age of 12 the world of Scouting came into my life and the opportunity to obtain the Signaling Merit Badge. I graduated high school at the age of 16 and a year later in New York City was hired as a messenger boy at Batten, Barton, Durstine and Osborn (BBDO), the largest advertising agency in the world. While my responsibility was at a starting level, nevertheless I found myself surrounded by creative people of all types. I was fascinated by the operations of the Radio Department. This was 1938 and although television was on radio continued on page 52
When not struggling with my crystal radio, I would walk to the local railroad station to visit Stan Jones. His was a one-
Starting with these experiences and ever so gradually, radio in one form or another, became a part of my life. 50

display the following year at the Worlds Fair, it was not yet available for public use. Rockefeller Center was known as Radio City and this was the national center of the entertainment industry. A lowly messenger, I nevertheless had the opportunity of shuttling back and forth between BBDO and the headquarters of NBC and CBS. As time progressed, I was allowed after delivering scripts to programs being rehearsed, to stay and watch the programs. This enabled me to meet personally such renowned people as Andre Kostelanetz, symphony maestro, and his wife, Lili Pons, a famous mezzo soprano. As much as I enjoyed the various programs, however, my eyes were constantly drawn to the actions of Bill Spier of BBDO who, behind a glass window and with hand signals of various sorts, was directing the entire program which he had helped create – pointing to the next person to speak, speeding things up, slowing things down, increasing or decreasing the volume, etc. It was obvious what direction my interests were going and the following year I enrolled in a night course in Radio Directing at Columbia University.
This might have been the beginning of a life-long occupation in the field of radio broadcasting but suddenly my life and the life of the entire nation was interrupted. World War II entered the scene. Even my entrance into the military, however, appeared to furnish opportunities in my field of interest. Following basic Infantry training my high marks in the Morse Code test (given to all recruits) came to the attention of members of the Signal Corps. But a transferal to that unit was not to be. My leadership ability in the Infantry was also noted and I was promoted to First Sergeant of a Headquarters Company thereby sealing my Army future. My buddies and I had all grown up listening to the programs listed above and this fact was not ignored by the War Department (as it was known then). Throughout the entire war Armed Forces Radio broadcast our favorite programs but also special programs aimed at the soldiers featuring Bob Hope, Jack Benny, Bing Crosby, Lucille Ball, Gary Cooper, Groucho Marx and many others. There were no commercials on those programs. One special program which we did not want to hear was the announcement of the death of President Franklin D.
Roosevelt. The age range of most of the soldiers was being close to mine, their reactions were similar. I was 12 when FDR was first elected in 1932 and of course could not vote. Nor could I when he was nominated for the second and third time when I was 16 and 20. The voting age at that time was 21. When he was nominated for the fourth time in 1944, practically all of us in the military were eligible and our votes were sent home. Simple arithmetic tells us he had been our President and later our Commander-in-Chief for over 12 years. Most of us had remembered no other president. Many of these battlehardened soldiers cried when the radio gave us the sad news. The radio was of course the vehicle, which announced in May 1945 the surrender of the Germans and the capitulation of the Japanese in August 1945. Throughout the war the radio had been by our side whether it was to bring happiness or grief. Shortly after my discharge I enrolled in Hofstra College and a new broadcasting element entered my life. As a student Psychology, I was assigned the project of pacing the streets of Hempstead, Long Island to count the number of houses radio continued on page 54

that had television antennas on their roofs. Indoor tv antennas not yet being in existence, I was able to estimate the percentage of the populace which owned tvs. Those owning tvs were a smaller number and for a period of time were popular hosts to those who did not. I am one of those veterans who brought back a GI Bride. Shortly after our marriage, because I spoke fluent French (a little rusty now) my French wife and I were interviewed over the Voice of America. This was taped and we were able to warn her family in advance so they could hear directly how we were doing. Radio is still an important part of my life. Because I find myself too busy to sit down in front of a tv screen and in any event am turned off by the commercials, there is no tv in my house. To keep up with the news each morning in bed and each evening I turn on Station WAMU which gives me the non-commercial National Public Radio. Each Saturday at 8 p.m. this station gives me three hours of the 19301950 music of my youth. Each Sunday at 7 p.m. this same station gives me a four-hour period of the same entertaining
programs which I enjoyed, but of which this current generation is being deprived. As I commute back and forth each day non-commercial Station WETA gives me my favorite classical music. Television presents what the producer wants the viewer to see. Radio requires imagination which enables the listener to create the scene as he wishes in his own mind. The power of imagination cannot be underestimated. A few effective voices, accompanied by sound effects, can lure us into another world. In the 1930s a popular program featured plays directed by Orson Welles. His choice for the Hallowe’en 1938 program was an adaptation of the science fiction novel “War of Worlds” and he decided to make it sound like a news broadcast. An explanation at the beginning stated it was merely a “play” but the next explanation
didn’t arrive until forty minutes into the program. In the play, dance music was interrupted a number of times by fake news bulletins telling of a “huge flaming object,” something “wriggling out of the spacecraft,” and “saliva dripping from it’s rimless lips.” A panic-stricken public that had not heard the warning that it was merely a play packed the roads, hid in cellars, loaded guns, and in various ways defended themselves. The listening audience had conjured up its own visual image. The 1930s and 1940s has been named the Golden Age of Radio. However. Here in the 21st century radio is still alive and well and continues to be apart of my daily life. You are invited to take a break from the visual life of television and join me in the fascinating world of sound.

CAPITOL VINEYARDS Oh the Taste of a Local Wine!
And now we head back to Delaplane, Virginia for another great local wine tasting! The winery, Capitol Vineyards, is located less than 25 minutes from Warrenton in Delaplane and is located in the old Postmaster General building built in the early 1800’s. What was a vacant General Store is now a tasting room, small, but intimate, with great views of the vineyard and mountains. Capitol Vineyards wines are 100% Virginia grapes and they make the following delicious wines; Traminette, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Meritage. Started in 2009, Capitol Vineyards is the brainchild of Lauren Shrem and Matthew Noland, a couple of Northern Virginia professionals with dreams of a bed and breakfast and a restaurant at the winery. It looks and sounds like they are off to a great start.
The wines are very nice; the Traminette had the typical nice sweetness as expected and a surprising fullness on the finish. Their Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc were my two favorites, I am a red wine lover and they made the trip worth the effort as the vineyard is a little tricky to find. As with any new enterprise growing pains are expected and I think the growing pains here at Capitol Vineyards are going to be “good” pains. Lauren and Matthew have a good game plan and with time will have some amazing wines and maybe a quaint B&B as well! Give these two young guns a try. They are located at 3600 Sage Road in Delaplane. For more information please give them a call at (845)598-2662 Tasting hours like working hours on the weekends, 9-5 Saturday and Sunday. Call ahead.
