Enjoy the Cold Outdoors, Enjoy the Warmth Indoors Heating System Checklist by Mike Appleton

Winter is right around the corner. Now is the time to ensure that your heating system will keep you and your family warm this winter. Preventative maintenance is essential so that your heating system functions reliably and at maximum efficiency. Heating systems need to be checked thoroughly on an annual basis by a trained heating professional. If it has been more than a year since your heating system was checked—it’s time. What Are the Benefits of a Heating System Maintenance Check? The key reasons to have an annual heating system maintenance check- up include: • Making sure your system will run problem free throughout the entire heating season • Increasing safety • Ensuring your system runs as efficiently as possible to conserve energy and keep your heating costs down • Saving money as small problems are uncovered before they become larger, more expensive problems • Extending the life of your current system and delaying replacement costs


What Should a Heating System Check Include? Your heating system check-up should be tailored to your specific system. The following lists provide the items that should be checked carefully and serviced to ensure a comfortable, efficient, problem-free heating season. Indoor Components • Indoor coil • Primary drain for dirt, cracks, and rust • Flush condensate drain • Auxiliary drain pan (if applicable) • Blower for dirt and balance • Blower motor bearings and amperage • Air flow • Filters • Thermostat • Wiring and connections Outdoor Components • Outdoor coil • Outdoor fan for balance • Fan motor bearings • Relays for contact wear • Capacitors for proper capacitance • Reversing valve operation • Defrost cycle • Compressor voltage and amperage • Operating temperatures and pressures • Check that all covers, caps, and seals are in place

Gas Furnaces Only • Heat exchanger • Draft inducer motor and fan • Flue pipe • Drain on condensing furnace • Clean flame sensor • Pressure switch, temperature-limit switch, draft switch, and roll-out switch • Gas valve operation • Gas pressure • Burners • Operating temperatures Electric Heat Only • Relay/sequencer operation • Heater voltage and amp draw • Operating temperatures Oil Furnaces Only • Burner • Clean and adjust electrode and nozzle assembly • Replace oil nozzle and filter • Test oil pump operation • Flue pipe and barometric damper • Test and adjust all safety and operating controls • Perform electronic combustion analysis for peak performance

What Can You Do for Your Heating System?

Things to Consider if You Need a New Heating System

Increasing your home’s energy efficiency takes some of the burden off your heating system and also reduces your energy consumption and lowers your energy costs. Your efforts can make a significant difference!

If your heating system needs to be replaced—there are some important things to consider.

• Change or clean your air filters regularly year-round. Dirty filters cause heating systems to overwork and can cause heating system failure. • Remove your floor registers and using a vacuum attachment— clean them out to remove accumulation in your duct work. • Minimize making frequent adjustments to the thermostat to reduce the number of starts and stops for your heating system. Either set it and forget it or use a programmable thermostat. • If your system has an outside unit—like a heat pump—be sure to keep the area around the outside unit clean and free of leaves, snow, ice, and debris. This helps the unit function more efficiently in terms of air flow and heat transfer. • Make sure your trees and shrubs are not encroaching on your outside unit. • Caulk door frames and windows to seal cracks. • Be sure there is adequate insulation in your walls and attic.

• What type of system is feasible for your location? • What system will be most efficient and affordable for the weather you experience? • Is the noise level of your current system of concern? • What are the short-term and long-term costs of each of your options? It is advisable to look at the life cycle costs for the systems you are considering. These include the costs for acquisition, installation, operating, and disposal or conversion of a piece of equipment. Life cycle costs give you a complete picture of how much you will need to spend on an annual basis for the next 15 to 20 years. There are many options from which to choose. You may find that a more durable, more efficient system will offset the higher initial costs with lower operating and maintenance costs over the long term. If you only plan to be in your home for a short period of time—a slightly less expensive and less efficient heating system may be your best choice. Take Care of Your Heating System— and Enjoy a Comfortable Winter Make an annual heating system maintenance check part of your fall routine and you and your family will enjoy a reliable, energy efficient, worryfree heating season.

Fauquier Health Diabetes 1.5, Explained Everybody knows there are two types of diabetes – Type 1 (juvenile onset), that affects children and Type 2 (adult onset), that develops later. Lida Tabatabaeian, M.D., of Fauquier Health Endocrinology, explains these two major types of diabetes have been defined by their underlying metabolic problems. Lida Tabatabaeian, M.D. Fauquier Health Endocrinology 550 Hospital Drive Warrenton, VA 20186 540-316-5940

But hold on, it’s not that simple. Dr. Tabatabaeian says that there is a third classification for patients who don’t fit neatly into either category. Getting to Know Type 1 Type 1 diabetes is characterized by autoimmune destruction of pancreatic cells. As a result of this breakdown, the pancreas produces little or no insulin. In fact, certain autoantibodies are present that resist the production of insulin. This type of diabetes most often develops in children, and the patient requires insulin treatment for survival. A Look into Type 2 Type 2 diabetes is characterized by insulin resistance and pancreatic dysfunction; it is considered a lifestyle disease and usually develops in adults – although it is now occurring with alarming frequency in children. With Type 2, there are no signs of autoimmune disease, and it usually does not require insulin in its early stages. A Combination of the Two Here’s where it gets more complicated. Dr. Tabatabaeian says that the medical professionals who study and treat diabetes noticed that among the people who do not require insulin at diagnosis

– most of whom were assumed to have Type 2 diabetes – a significant number showed autoantibodies. These patients were treated initially with diet therapy and oral medicines like people with Type 2 diabetes, but they also had an ongoing autoimmune process like people with Type 1 diabetes. The term “latent autoimmune diabetes of adults” (LADA) was applied to these patients. It was originally called slow-progressing Type 1 diabetes, but now clinicians prefer the term Type 1.5 diabetes, because it has features of both the major types. People with Type 1.5 diabetes are said to have “double diabetes” because they show both the autoimmune destruction of pancreatic cells of Type 1 diabetes and the insulin resistance characteristic of Type 2 diabetes. People with Type 1.5 have autoantibodies and gradually lose their insulin-producing capability, requiring insulin within five to 10 years

of diagnosis. As their insulin resistance suggests, many people with Type 1.5 diabetes are obese or overweight. If you would like to learn more about diabetes and how to manage it, call 540-3162652 or email diabetes@fauquierhealth.org to find out about diabetes self-management training classes at the Fauquier Wellness Center. A diabetes support group usually meets at the Wellness Center, from 6-7 p.m., on the second Thursday of every other month.

Montford Point Marines Receive Long-Overdue Recognition Local Marine Corps veterans of WWII were among those honored

Veterans’ Day 2012 by John T. Toler

Every Veterans’ Day is memorable, but this year will have special meaning for a small group of U.S. Marines who served in World War II and the Korean War that were trained at a segregated facility in North Carolina known as Montford Point.

Marine Private Roland Tapscott at Montford Point, just before leaving for overseas duty in 1943.

This past June, the men known as Montford Point Marines received long overdue recognition for their patriotism, sacrifice and tenacity – even before they entered combat. Among them were two Fauquier County natives, Roland I. Tapscott of Warrenton, and his younger brother Stanley Tapscott, of Washington, D.C. Sons of the late James and Roberta Tapscott, they grew up in the Warrenton-Catlett area. When the U.S entered World War II, the family was living at the Mary Maxwell farm on Duhollow Road, where James Tapscott was the farm manager. For the U.S. Marine Corps, the decision to integrate the formerly all-white armed service was neither popular, nor easily implemented. In 1941, Pres. Franklin D. Roosevelt issued Executive Order 8802, establishing the Fair Employment Practices Commission, and banning racial discrimination in any government agency (including the Armed Forces) and the defense industry. This order effectively gave African Americans the opportunity to serve in the U.S. Marine Corps for the first time since the Revolutionary War. But it would not be easy. When he received the directive to enlist African Americans, thenMarine Corps Commandant Maj. Gen Thomas Holcomb stated, “If it came to a question of having 5,000 white Marines or 250,000 Negro Marines, I’d rather have the whites.” As a result, the President’s directive was followed to the letter – but in spirit, it was not.

The most obvious affront was the creation of segregated training facilities. White enlistees were trained at Parris Island, S.C. and San Diego, Calif., and African Americans sent to boot camp at a new facility at Camp LeJeune, N.C., called Montford Point, which opened on Aug. 18, 1942. The unit there was designated the 51st Composite Defense Battalion. The unique designation as a “Defense Battalion” allowed the men to be trained separately from other Marines in an isolated facility. From the start, conditions at Montford Point were deplorable. The barracks consisted of dilapidated, Depressionera Civilian Construction Corps huts that had been hauled in, and the new recruits were responsible for building the latrines and other facilities that were initially lacking. They were subject to overt racism, both from the civilian communities near the camp, and from the white officers and NCOs assigned to train them. In addition to the arduous training involved with “making a Marine,” the African American recruits faced open hostility and their capabilities constantly called into question. Those completing training were to be enlisted as Class III-C status, Marine Corps Reserve, and assigned to inactive duty in the General Service unit of their Reserve District. But a critical shortage of manpower put an end to that plan. Between 1942 and 1946, approximately 20,000 African Americans were trained at Montford Point. Of this number, nearly 13,000 were sent to fight in the Pacific Theater of the war, participating mount point continued on page 14

in the bloody struggles to drive the Japanese off Saipan, Guam, Tinian, Peleliu, Iwo Jima and Okinawa. The remainder served stateside as stewards at various headquarters, or worked at supply and ammunition depots. By virtue of their service, the plan to discharge all African American Marines after World War II – and return the Corps to its previously all-white composition – was never implemented. Once given the chance, the Montford Point Marines proved that they were as capable as all other Marines, opening the door for an integrated Marine officer corps and other significant changes. Montford Point Marines who made the Corps their career went on to serve with distinction in Korea and Vietnam. Full integration of the Armed Services came in 1949, with an executive order issued by Pres. Harry Truman. No longer needed, Montford Point was closed. However, the camaraderie fostered by the shared experience of Montford Point led to the creation of the Montford Point Marine Association in Philadelphia in 1965. Today the MPMA has 36 chapters nationwide, as well as a Ladies Auxiliary. Since the last Marine left Montford Point over 60 years ago, membership has been opened to all veterans and active duty military personnel. The association maintains an excellent Web site at www.montfordpointmarines.com.

Newly arrived Marine Corps recruits are shown being issued uniforms and equipment at Montford Point.

Tapscotts Remember Montford Point In 1942, Roland Tapscott had received notice that he was being drafted into the U.S. Army, and was sent to Ft. Myer, Va., for a physical exam. However, when he got off the bus on 14th Street in Washington, D.C., he noticed a kiosk manned by a Marine Corps recruiter. Next to the kiosk was a cutout of a Marine in his dress blue uniform. “I wasn’t too happy with what I’d gone through with the Army, so I stopped in and asked the guy if I could join,” he recalled.

After several months, the facilities at Montford Point, like this mess hall, had been improved, but were still barely adequate.

Although he already had his draft papers and was told he would be inducted into the Army the next week, the recruiter assured him he could get into the Marine Corps. In addition, he would have a month before he would have to report to boot camp – at Montford Point. Roland Tapscott’s first impression of Montford Point was that it was “… in the boondocks,” and smaller than he imagined it would be. “I thought I would be going to a big training camp like Parris Island, but Montford Point was just a makeshift operation.” He recalled. “The huts we lived in were made of some kind of fabric or paper, with 40 men in each building.” He was a member of “Platoon 41,” with the very first men coming to Montford Point were in “Platoon 1.” Training was done by white Drill Instructors, all of whom were from the South. “We caught a hard time there. They were some kind of tough on us,” said Roland Tapscott, adding that the maltreatment went beyond turning the men into Marines. “It was clear that they didn’t want blacks in the Marine Corps.” One of the frequent punishments endured by recruits for small infractions was having their heads pushed down mount point continued on page 16

Later, African American Marines were selected from the ranks to serve as DIs, as shown in this platoon photo taken in 1943. Right: Marine Corps Commandant Gen. James F. Amos, flanked by Adrian Tapscott and his father Roland Tapscott, and Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Tapscott following the presentation of individual medals. Photo courtesy of Robert Chichester.

into the water barrels placed around for firefighting, and held there “…until you thought your lungs would burst,” he recalled. “Too often we were treated like animals. It was disgraceful.” While all Marines are expected to be infantrymen, Roland Tapscott’s platoon spent only three days on the firing range, and trained with .22 caliber rifles, instead of the M-1 rifles they expected to carry in battle. “We had them (M-1s) but we weren’t allowed to use them,” he said. As a result, the marksman training at Montford Point “… didn’t amount to anything,” Likely due to manpower demands, Roland Tapscott’s boot camp training lasted only eight weeks. After five days leave spent at home, he returned to Montford Point and was told he was being shipped overseas as a member of the 4th Depot Company, departing from San Diego. En route to the supply depot on the island of Banika in the South Pacific, Pvt. Tapscott witnessed the sinking of a Navy supply ship by Japanese torpedo bombers off Guadalcanal. Arriving on Banika in May 1943, his company became part of the 4th Depot Battalion, Fleet Marine Forces. Pvt. Tapscott’s days were spent unloading large transport ships, loading smaller 16

boats and barges headed for the battle front, driving trucks, operating heavy equipment – and taking cover from frequent attacks by Japanese aircraft. World War II ended with the Japanese surrender in August 1945, but thenCpl. Roland Tapscott’s tour did not end until December. Catching a ride across the Pacific on the U.S.S. Saint Louis, he finally arrived stateside in early January 1946. He was discharged from the USMC at Montford Point, where it all began, on Jan. 9, 1946.

Enduring Harassment Stanley Tapscott’s experience in the Marine Corps was much shorter, but no less intense, at least as far as Montford Point was concerned. Following his older brother’s example, he volunteered to serve in the USMC in 1944, when he was only 17 years old. Always a neat dresser, he arrived at the reception center at Montford Point on Dec. 14, 1944 wearing a black suit and coat. “By then, there were black Drill Instructors, and they had to be rougher than the white DIs, if they wanted to keep their jobs,” recalled Stanley Tapscott. While he was waiting, he was approached by a black DI, who stared at him and said, “You look pretty neat.” Stanley Tapscott replied, “I try to be…”

and with that, the DI kicked Stanley’s foot off of his leg, and ordered him to stand. What followed was a tirade about addressing the DI as “Sir,” at all times. When Stanley answered him – without the requisite “sir,” the DI grabbed a fire bucket and placed it on Stanley Tapscott’s head. He was ordered to stand at attention with the bucket on his head repeating “Yes, Sir” until the DI was satisfied he had learned his lesson. Once in boot camp, Stanley Tapscott quickly learned that every movement was to be done at a run, and anyone caught walking would be subject to punishment. All “Boots,” as the new recruits were known, wore a white patch on their caps, so that they could be singled out for abuse. Christmas Day 1944 was particularly memorable. When a recruit failed to make formation on time because he was in the latrine and wouldn’t own up to it, the whole platoon was forced to put their footlockers over their heads and “duck walk” in the reception area until the DI released them. Stanley Tapscott had been at Montford Point just over three months when he came down with “cat fever,” mount point continued on page 18

and was quickly separated from the Marine Corps and sent home. He is still mystified by the action, and the fact that he was given an honorable discharge, rather than a medical discharge.

Montford Point Marines Honored Today, only about 400 Montford Point Marines are known to be alive, and with the dwindling number of members of “The Greatest Generation,” it became critical that the Montford Point Marines be given the recognition they deserved.

Harry Reid, Majority Leader of the U.S. Senate; and Nancy Pelosi, Democratic Leader of the House of Representatives. At this event, the Marine Corps was presented with a large version of the Congressional Gold Medal struck for the Montford Point Marines, which was displayed on a stand. On June 28, the Montford Point veterans were taken to the Marine Corps Barracks at 8th and Eye streets in Washington, and each was presented with an individual Congressional Gold medal.

A bill to award Montford Point Marines the Congressional Gold Medal – the nation’s highest civilian award – was passed by Congress and signed by Pres. Barack Obama on Nov. 23, 2011. Marine Corps personnel, working closely with the MPMA, tried to find and document all living Montford Point Marines, with all information going to the MPMA Legislative Office in Limerick, Pa. Two special events were scheduled. On Feb. 23, 2012, the UMOJA Chapter of Blacks in Government presented “CIA Celebrates the Life and Accomplishments of the Montford Point Marines” at the Central Intelligence Agency Headquarters. Later, Montford Point veterans were honored in a Commemorative Ceremony in Washington, D.C. on June 27-28, 2012. Most of the honorees arrived on June 26, and were housed in hotels in Crystal City. On June 27, they attended the Congressional Gold Medal Ceremony, held in the Emancipation Hall of the U.S. Capitol. Remarks and presentations were made by John Boehner, Speaker of the House of Representatives; Mitch McConnell, Republican Leader of the U.S. Senate;

The Montford Point Marines Congressional Gold Medal.

Like the larger rendition presented to the Marine Corps, the front of the individual medal depicts the faces of three African American Marines, a combat training scene, and the words, “Montford Point Marines, 19421949.” The back depicts a company of Montford Point Marines in formation, and the inscription, “For outstanding perseverance and courage that inspired social change in the Marine Corps. 2011 Act of Congress.” The presentation booklet included a letter from Pres. Barack Obama, which stated in part, “Despite being denied many basic rights, the Montford Point Marines committed to serve our country with selfless patriotism. Choosing to put their lives on the line, these men helped

advance civil rights and influenced Pres. Harry Truman’s decision to desegregate the Armed Forces. Embodying the Marine Corps motto of Semper Fidelis, Always Faithful, these heroes paved the way for future generations of warriors, regardless of background, to serve in the finest military the world has ever known.” Along with the Tapscott brothers, another Warrenton Marine Corps veteran, Robert Chichester, attended the events as a long time member of the MPMA. Mr. Chichester, who served with distinction in the Korean War, was trained at Parris Island in 1951; by then the Corps was truly desegregated, and Montford Point closed. Following their military service, the Tapscott brothers and Mr. Chichester returned to civilian life, where they raised families and had productive, satisfying careers. By now retired, they will always share a special bond: Once a Marine, Always a Marine.

Fall Family Activity Challenge by Kim Forsten

Fall is here, with delightfully crisp air and gorgeous scenery. This year, inspire your whole family to get outside and get moving with our Fall Family Activity Challenge. How many activities can you complete? The leaves are changing. There’s a chill in the air. Soon, we’ll be raking leaves and carving pumpkins. Yes, fall is officially here. And, with it comes some of our region’s best weather, most stunning scenery and tastiest seasonal treats. Get the whole family outside and have fun with our Fall Family Activity Challenge! Here’s how it works. Between now and Thanksgiving, challenge your family to complete at least half of the 22 activities below. Once you’ve hit your goal, treat yourself to something fun that the whole family will enjoy.

At Home:

On the Road:

1. Leaf maze: Rake your leaves into a crazy pattern to make a maze in your own backyard. Run or bike through the maze. Can everyone figure it out? 2. Leaf pile: Once you’ve solved your maze, rake the leaves into a big pile. Go ahead. Jump in those leaves. Have a blast before cleaning them up for the year. 3. Fall cleaning: Pick a single room in the house for a fall makeover. Work together as a family to get it clean and organized. You may want to focus on a room that’ll see a lot of use in the winter, like your basement or living room. 4. Football or soccer: Invite over some family and friends, and enjoy a fun game of flag football or soccer in your backyard. 5. Bonfire: After the game, gather the group together for an evening bonfire. Roast some marshmallows and tell ghost stories. After all, with Halloween just around the corner, ‘tis the season for spooky stories. 6. Wash the cars: Give your cars a little TLC before winter arrives, and it’s too cold for hoses and water fun. Pick a sunny day and get the whole family involved. 7. Decorate for fall: When is the last time you made a scarecrow or carved a pumpkin? Here’s your chance. Collect your supplies from a local farm or store, and spend the day creating fall decorations with the whole family.

8. Hit the trail: Autumn in Virginia is one of the nicest seasons for a hike or stroll through the woods. 9. Grab the bike: Want to move a bit faster? Hop on the bike for a ride around town or through the country. If you don’t own a bike, you can usually rent one from your local bike store. 10. Take a hayride: Farms are packed with fun activities for the fall. Visit a local pumpkin patch to pick your own Jack’o’lantern. Take a stroll through a corn maze. Visit a haunted house. 11. Pick a peck o’ apples: Autumn means apples. Visit an orchard and spend the day picking the tastiest fruits from the trees. 12. Turkey Trot: Register the whole family to participate in a local running or walking event, like the Turkey Trot. 13. Hit the links: Golf season is almost over. Head out for one last round on your favorite course, or hit a bucket of balls at the local driving range. Take along the kids too! 14. Rainy day fun: Keep active even when the sun isn’t shining. Take the whole family out for a day at the local health club, pool, bowling alley or climbing wall. 15. Plan ahead: Start planning now for a fun family activity for Thanksgiving day or weekend. After all that turkey, you’ll be happy to get out and get moving! 16. Volunteer: Pick a local cause — a food drive, for example — and get the whole family involved with volunteering. 17. Don’t forget the pets: Take along the dog when you hit the trails. Or, maybe trying teaching them a new trick.

uncover Your

Harris Smile! In the Kitchen: 18. Roast pumpkin seeds: Save the seeds from your Jack’o’lantern. Toss them with a bit of olive oil and salt, and roast them in the oven for an easy and tasty treat. 19. Get creative: Fall is wealthy with delicious seasonal ingredients. Try a new recipe featuring apples, pumpkins, winter squash or cranberries. Enjoy the harvest! 20. Visit the farmers’ market: Get to know your local farmers. Ask them about their produce and meats, and try a few things you’ve never tried before. 21. Eat some eggs: Buy a dozen local, pastured eggs at the farmers’ market. Ask your farmer how they raise their chickens, and how their eggs are different from the ones at the grocery store. Then, take them home and cook them up. Can you taste the difference? 22. Enjoy a local, family dinner: Pick one night a week for a family dinner featuring some of the local fare you found at the farmers’ market. Be adventurous with your ingredients. You may find a new family favorite! We’ve offered you 22 activities here, but there are countless ways to get outside, get active and have fun during the autumn months. Try some of our suggestions, or create some of your own. Whatever you do, focus on sharing healthy foods and fun activities with your family, and everyone will feel better, inside and out!

Harmonizing Local Musicians local teacher and director inspires and coaches By George Rowand

When Steve Aiello was in high school, he wanted to be an electrical engineer. “I liked stereos,” he explained, “and the reason I liked stereos was because of the music, so finally I decided that it was music that I really liked, it wasn’t electrical engineering, so I started pursuing music when I was in high school.” Now Aiello – who hails from Connecticut by way of Florida and Montana – is completing his 20th year as the director of the Warrenton Chorale. He also is the music director at C. Hunter Ritchie Elementary School in Warrenton. It’s been an interesting ride. “I played saxophone and started a high school chorus,” Aiello remembered. “Somebody said, ‘When you’re not playing saxophone, why don’t you just slip in back and sing with the chorus.’ And so I did, and they said, ‘You have a really good voice. You should sing solo.’ So they had me sing this solo, and I think I loved it so much I really wasn’t nervous at all. I really enjoyed it. And I decided, that’s what I want to do. I want to be a choral teacher, and here I am 36 years later in an elementary school.”

The Path Aiello went to Florida State University for his bachelors and masters degrees in music education. Married a couple of years out of college, Steve and his wife, Betty, headed to a job in Montana. His two years there were a mixed blessing. “The people were very, very friendly, but the school was in a terrible situation,” he said. “The town had grown from 250 to 5,000 almost overnight when two coal-fired electricity plants opened, and then it settled back to about 2,500. It was an itinerant town and in the course of a year, a third of the student population would change. And the teaching situation was horrible. Fifty percent of the high school staff turned over the second year I was there, and 33 percent of the elementary staff. “I was teaching K-12 music, and I started a community choir,” he added, “but it was such a little town that the car stayed in the garage for a month at a time because there wasn’t any place to go. We would go to Billings once a month to keep our sanity, and I’d have to say that if we’d been in Bozeman or Missoula, we never would have left. It was that gorgeous.” The next step on the path led the couple to Fauquier County. “I came here in 1980,” Aiello said. “I was teaching at P. B. Smith Elementary, and I went over to C. Hunter Ritchie when it opened.” Aiello said that he had a hand in designing the room that he currently occupies at the school. “The best thing was that two years before, when they talked about building this school and Grace Miller, they asked the music teachers for their input, and I had a lot of input. I drew pictures and labeled it, turned it in and promptly forgot about it, and when I came to visit the school for the first time, I went, ‘It’s my room! They used my ideas!’” He’s been there ever since, teaching music to kindergarten through fifth grade students. He still finds it exciting. “Sometimes you can see the light come on for these kids, and that’s why I’m still doing it 36 years later. It’s fun. It’s exhilarating.”

Aiello leads practice for his 5th grade chorus class.

Aiello said that he has a specific way that he produces the annual plays at the school. “Every spring we do a spring musical, and on Monday, I go through the play every single step of the way,” he said. “You have to be on top of them. On Tuesday, I say, ‘Run the show.’ It takes forever, and I just stop occasionally and make sure that they just keep on going … (with) no adult supervisors back stage, no prompters, nothing. Just deal with it. ‘But I forgot my line!’ ‘Fake it.’ On Wednesday, I say, ‘Okay, you’re on your own.’ I’ll take notes. Talk about lights going on, that’s when the magic happens because they go from being totally dependent to it being their show by Wednesday afternoon. It’s theirs. They don’t ask me anything. When the show is running, it’s theirs. That’s the greatest thing to give those kids: ownership of the show. I just love that.” Because they have been given the freedom to create their own show, there usually are some surprises. “We do Gilbert and Sullivan, and that’s hard for fifth graders, but a couple of years ago we did ‘Pirates of Penzance,’ and these kids not only got it on the first read-through, they were into it. Not only did they get it, they started adding their own shtick. I was in the back, helping with the sound, and I was thinking, ‘Where’d that come from? That’s really funny. I didn’t tell them to do that.’ I was just ecstatic, because they not only got it, they were adding their own shtick. This wasn’t impromptu, they had worked it out in advance.” Aiello preaches the benefits for kids to be in shows. “Once they’ve been on stage, even if all they do is sing in the chorus, just getting up on stage is an amazing thing for them, because they’re so shy, and it gives them the confidence that they need. And I tell the parents, ‘These are life skills that they’re developing,’ because when you go in for an interview, you have to be an actor. You have to be presenting yourself in a way. You have to get over your nerves or you’re not going to get a job.”

The Warrenton Chorale has been around for 59 years. Aiello took over directing the group 20 years ago and produces shows for Spring and Christmas. “At Christmas, we generally have 80 to 85 people singing,” he explained. “This year we’re up to 93. It has been as high as 110, I guess. Spring is usually about 60 people. “The Warrenton Chorale is a non-audition group,” he continued. “It’s always been that way. We have a lot of people who don’t think they can sing, and after a few years, they’re so addicted they keep coming back.” Aiello said that he runs a tight ship when it comes to rehearsals for the Chorale. “I have no intention on wasting their time. We’re there for a reason, and the reason is to sing, and I don’t like waiting. I start a concert on time and end it on time. I start rehearsals on time and end them on time.” Still, there is a considerable amount of fun. “It’s a very friendly group. We have a very good time.” And after almost six decades, the Warrenton Chorale is a recognized part of the community. “I hear it said a lot, ‘It’s not Christmas until we’ve been to the Christmas concert.’ The season doesn’t begin for them until they go to Warrenton Chorale’s Christmas music. It sets the tone, and I’m unabashedly Christian, and I’ve always put a Christian bent on it. Chorale music is unique because there are words. You don’t have to imagine what the composer was thinking when he wrote it. The words are there for a reason, and it’s the obligation of the chorus to convey those words in a meaningful and a beautiful way. “In the spring, we’ll sing spirituals and we’ll sing vocal jazz,” he continued. “I sometimes think I’m a person out of time, and I just love the music out of the big band era. And the ballads that came out of that time period are phenomenally beautiful and not something to be scoffed at as far as the complexity of the harmonic progressions, the jazz progressions are infinitely more complicated than Beethoven or Mozart. They’re fairly simple compared to jazz. Jazz is the American classical music.” Aiello said that he hasn’t lost his zest for teaching … even though it has taken him farther afield than he could have imagined. “God had different plans for me, and that’s okay. It’s been fabulous, teaching little kids that really want to be here, and they enjoy it. It’s just been so much fun.” The Warrenton Chorale’s “Christmas in Music” concert will be held on November 29 and 30 and on December 1.

Women’s Well-being

Surviving the Holidays by Michelle Kelley

The famous “Rosie the Riveter” poster from the World War II era celebrated women’s entry into the labor force and their contributions to the American war effort. Today, more than ever, “Women Can Do It” ... and 10 more things all at the same time! But should we be doing it all? It’s a good question to ask as we gear up for the holiday season. According to an American Psychological study, half of all women in the United States experience heightened stress during the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas. That’s because women usually assume the primary responsibility in their families for meal preparation, home decorating, gift buying and ensuring that everything looks beautiful and goes smoothly. Ironically, Superwoman’s good intentions often backfire, when she eventually succumbs to exhaustion and burnout and takes it out on the family members she loves and is so valiantly striving to serve. How can today’s “empowered woman” enjoy the holidays and family time without succumbing to exhaustion and burnout? Here are five ways you can take care of yourself to better enjoy this holiday season: Practice Saying “No.” Remember, “no” is a complete sentence. You don’t have to explain, qualify or apologize for saying “no”. You have the right to say “no” to doing too much. In fact, learning to say “no” is essential to protect your sanity, your health, and preserve quality time with the people most important to you -- your family. You don’t need to apologize or feel guilty about taking care of yourself. Rethink Gift-Giving. Find ways to make gift buying and gift giving easier on yourself. Shop local or online. Instead of exchanging gifts, spend quality time together. Make a spending budget and stay within your limit. Excess spending will absolutely increase your stress level. Exercise. Taking care of your physical health/well-being is a gift you give to yourself and others, especially your children who are watching you closely during this time. Schedule Down Time. Overbooking yourself or your family is a good way to ensure you will be too busy or tired to care about anything. Sleep. Sleep strengthens your immune system and helps to build emotional resiliency.

Michelle Kelley, LCSW is a licensed counselor and the owner of Girls Stand Strong. As an educator, public speaker and counselor she is working towards changing the culture of what’s acceptable in relationships. Together with her family, dogs and career she understands the demands that face today’s empowered woman. For more information go to her website at www.GirlsStandStrong.com.

Fauquier Worships

Heritage Presbyterian Church Our Home…Your Home

Gracefully set atop a hill overlooking the natural beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains is a loving community church with traditional values, commitment to biblical worship, discipleship and warm fellowship. Heritage Presbyterian Church was founded in Warrenton in 1985 as sister to Gainesville Presbyterian Church. They work to glorify God by knowing God intimately through learning and discipleship; growing spiritually through worship, prayer, fellowship and service; showing God’s grace to others through acts of mercy that overcome divisions; and going into the whole world through outreach and evangelism. This friendly, diverse, multigenerational congregation currently has 170 members and many active ministries to participate in. “We are shooting for an intergenerational congregation,” Associate Pastor Brian Sandifer explained. “This is a family and a community church, we want to tailor our worship and our ministries so that they are timeless and moving forward – a blended worship.” Heritage Presbyterian emphasizes strong values and incorporates them into their church culture. Worship & Prayer are valued and encouraged each day as the bible describes the kind of worship that God desires. Through worship every individual is engaged inside and out while reading and listening to the Word. Their This is the twenty-first in a series of articles about local churches and houses of worship. The purpose is to introduce you to the distinct features of each congregation, their philosophy and atmosphere. We believe that churches, temples, synagogues, etc are some of our best community centers. As you read about them each month we hope you will find one that interests you and your family. This month, we take a look at Heritage Presbyterian Church. 36

worship is Christ-centered and lead by the written Word of God. Teaching & Discipleship are strong within Heritage Presbyterian, their leaders, pastors, and even parents are there to motivate service work within the community. The church shows mercy, concern and compassion for the congregation and our community through Mercy & Social concern. Locally and internally they work to address and deliver to the needs of our community and within the church. Through their Outreach & Evangelism they strive to inspire people to recognize opportunities for relational and friendly evangelism. Fellowship & Community are ever present in this congregation, they are always willing to care, help, and guide one another. “We are very much about building internal community here at Heritage Presbyterian Church but also reaching out to the broader community here in Warrenton,” Pastor Sandifer stressed the importance of Fellowship & Community in their core values. “We see ourselves as an outpost of God’s Kingdom, so we are serving all of our neighbors.” Their fellowship can be experienced through their active ministries. Children are offered several ministries that teach the gospel of Jesus Christ. Every Sunday a Children’s Sermon is held to explain the topic of the day’s sermon. Sunday School classes are provided for children to participate in. They also offer His Majesty’s Service - Heritage Kids Club, Vacation Bible School and Backyard Bible Clubs. The Youth Program meets monthly for organized events and they assist in running

the Heritage Kids Club. College and Career Fellowship focuses on 18-24 year olds as they take part in Sunday School classes and relate to a book they chose to study together. As a group they hike, play volleyball, watch movies, participate in open discussions and more. Pastor Sandifer said, “The Youth Group participates in unit studies, like particular aspects of the Christian faith or we might talk about the attributes of God, or we might concentrate on teaching the kids how to pray or organizing current service projects.” An important ministry for Heritage Presbyterian is Small Groups. It’s a great way to connect in a more intimate setting with opportunities to gather throughout the week. Their Small Groups include Wednesday Evening Bible Studies, Men’s Lunch Bible Study, Ladies’ Bible Study, Girls’ Bible Study, and Titus 2. Girl’s Bible Study is open to high school age girls and their friends that want to engage in fellowship, food, prayer and bible study. Titus 2 is a mentoring group for senior women within the congregation to guide younger women in their role as a Christian woman. Their Mercy Ministries work locally to spread their love of Jesus. They conduct worship services at Oak Springs Nursing Home on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month. On the first Sunday of each month they visit Fauquier Health and Rehabilitation Center for worship service and greetings. The Fauquier Family Shelter gets a visit on the last Friday of the month; they share a meal, service, fellowship and extended friendship during their time.


“Quite a bit of people (20-25 people) from the congregation [will] serve a meal, bring a meal, and talk to the folks down there,” Pastor Sandifer said about their visit to the Fauquier Family Shelter. “We share with them the love of Christ, we sit with them and we pray with them.” Their desire to help outside of the community is evident in their Missions Ministry. They work to build evangelistic churches in new places to help faithfully support and maintain new relationships. They work with foreign missionaries in Africa, Canada, Chile, French Caribbean, Japan, Mexico, Middle East, Peru, Paraguay, and Spain – just to name a few. In addition to their other ministries they offer Cristo Redentor, a ministry to Hispanics in the community. In the last four years they have built a strong congregation with family and friendship ties. Associate Pastor Rob Amsler presents their service entirely in Spanish. They also offer a Spanish bible study at 7pm on Wednesday nights. “Most people respond better in the language that they know well,” Pastor Amsler said. “Even though they may use another language during the week they prefer to come and listen to a sermon in their language.” Heritage Presbyterian Church is located at 7850 Millfield Drive off of Academy Hill Extended on Walker Drive. Worship Service is held on Sunday at 9:30am followed by Sunday School at 11:30am. They offer Hispanic Worship Service on Sunday at 2:30pm and an Evening Program at 6:00pm.

Back to Basics

Giving Thanks Promotes Happiness & Health John comes from a family of highly successful people who taught him to climb the ladder of success by criticizing himself whenever he did something wrong. He learned early in life that it’s hard work and a “dog eatdog world;” and to get ahead you had to not make a mistake. While he did succeed, including in getting an MBA from a top school he was rarely happy, to him work seemed only drudgery, he spent a lot of time noticing what he didn’t do well, and he beat himself up with his own thoughts when he FEAR-ed = (False Evidence Appearing Real) he wasn’t good enough. He often felt lifeless and depressed. Hesitantly, he asked for a prescription for Prozac despite not wanting to take an antidepressant. The therapist suggested to first try something else for one month and John agree. Before work he was to ask himself, “What do I feel grateful for about myself?” By doing this he reminded himself of his resources, strengths, and talents early in the day. At the end he’d ask himself, «What did I do today that I feel good about?» “Do you know what I discovered?” John asked his therapist. «Gratitude is a natural upper. It worked so well that now, whenever I feel my energy going down during the day, I asked myself what do I feel grateful for in this moment?” By concentrating on what he does right and what he appreciates about himself, John overcame his depression and has begun to look forward to work and life in general.

Simple places to start practicing gratitude: In the morning, take a moment to be grateful that you have a bed and a roof over your head. Let that attitude of gratitude continue through the day. Truly appreciate food, eyesight, and hearing, instead of grumbling about the commute. Be gratefully for your car, your job and your home in or around Warrenton. Before you go to sleep a night, train your thoughts during the last 5 minutes to be grateful and positive. If your mind wonders it’s okay, it’s only natural - focus back (like changing the channel) to gratitude. Think of the things you wish for in the future and envision them happening. You’re about to marinate in these thoughts for the next eight hours, science says that this will bring more of those thoughts into your future. So, what do you choose to think about?

Recent scientific research indicates that positive emotions, such as gratitude and love have beneficial effects on health. They do so by strengthening and enhancing the immune system, which enables the body to resist disease and recover more quickly from illness through the release of endorphins into the bloodstream. Endorphins are the body’s natural painkillers and among other effects, they stimulate dilation of blood vessels that lead to a relaxed heart. Conversely, negative emotions such as worry, anger, and hopelessness reduce the number of white blood cells and slow down the movement of these disease-fighting cells in the bloodstream. This contributes to the development of stroke and heart disease by dumping high levels of adrenaline into the bloodstream. Adrenaline constricts blood vessels, particularly to the heart, raising blood pressure and potentially damaging arteries in the heart itself. In short, we can contribute to a longer, healthier life by pumping more endorphins into our system through the practice of gratitude.

“We Come Highly Recommended” Very Competitive Rates 41

Life & Living It

BIG BAND MUSIC On December 1st and 2nd our very own Piedmont Symphony Orchestra will be playing my music – well, all right then - my music and the music of approximately 15 million others in the military during World War II. To the sound of Big Band music we sang, we danced, we did basic training, we entered combat, and we won the war. Ridiculous? That music could help to create a victorious army; those living during that period will find nothing unusual about that statement. Big Band music and the youth of that time were solidly linked. Jazz music and I grew up together. Simultaneously as I moved through elementary school to high school in the 1930s, jazz was also coming into its own. A trumpet player in the school band, I formed a jazz band along with other students. This was fun but its disadvantage was that I could not go out on the gym floor and learn to dance. Throughout my growing up period, the radio industry 42

flourished and increased its geographical scope. Each New Years Eve I sat home, starting to listen to Guy Lombardo’s band bringing in the New Year at midnight in Manhattan and then, with my patient father trying to sleep, listening all night long to Big Band music, hour after hour as the midnight celebrations moved through the middle and mountain time zones on to the Pacific zone. The year 1937 changed all that. A high school graduate now living in New York City, I lost no time in making my first visit to Roseland Ballroom in Manhattan. I was in heaven. Overlooking a huge beautiful dance floor accommodating almost a thousand dancers was a double stage, one above the other. After playing standard jazz for an hour, another band specializing in Latin music, which had quietly entered the other stage, would start to play tango or maybe rumba while the first band left to rest. One hour later the original band returned. There was no break in the music

and therefore dancing was constant. While saxophones are rare in symphony, they are prominent in jazz bands accompanied by the unmistakable wahwah sound of the muted trumpet. Benny Goodman, a clarinetist and acknowledged King of Swing, often included in his quartet Lionel Hampton who wielded a magical hand on the marimba. Sometimes there was a double bass – or, if you prefer, a bass fiddle to give a solid foundation. Tommy Dorsey, a trombonist, featured himself in his band. But the hero of Big Band was the drummer who let you know exactly when your feet were supposed to hit the floor. Although he was responsible for all percussion, bass drum, symbol, etc., the snare drum was his specialty. He followed no prescribed notes, but followed and often created the spirit of the moment. Sometimes the drummer played “solos.” No one out-drummed the famous Gene Kroupa. Very quickly, I learned to

ask girls to dance (after all, that is why they were there) and very quickly I learned the steps. Also during those post-high school years, I took lessons at Arthur Murray studios. Suddenly we were plunged into war on December 7, 1941 and along with my cohorts across the nation I donned the uniform but still loving Big Band music. On December 8th, one day after the attack on Pearl Harbor, Congress declared war on Japan and three days later declared war on Germany. The entire American populace was united and the music reflected this feeling. People now danced and sang to songs with such titles as “Boogie Woogie Bugler Boy,” a favorite of the rapid “eight to the measure” athletic jitterbugs, as well as “Remember Pearl Harbor,” and “G.I. Jive.” Not only did military technology rapidly improve, but so did that of radio broadcasting. During the 1930s the American populace regularly listened Warrenton Lifestyle

& VICTORY IN WAR to President Franklin D. Roosevelt on the radio. Accustomed to listening to his “Fireside Chats,” they now tuned in weekly to his updates on the war.

the Street.” Their favorites included music by Glenn Miller who became an Army officer and was later lost in a plane flight over the English Channel.

On June 10, 1942 I enlisted in the Army and during that brief enrollment period at Ft. Dix prior to basic training, I danced nightly with the local girls who were permitted to enter the post.

The United States was in the attack mode, stirred on by such songs as “Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition” and “Coming In on a Wing and a Prayer.” Back home wives and girlfriends comforted themselves with such songs as “Don’t Get Around Much Anymore,” “I’ll be Seeing You,” and “It’s Been a Long Long Time.” The Andrews sisters helped the listeners to remember and cry over the lyrics.

Then came Ft. Meade, Md, Ft. Jackson, S.C. and ultimately my assignment to overseas duty in the European Theater of Operations. Big Band music accompanied us everywhere: at the post recreation center, on board ship crossing the ocean, and during our brief stay in England before entering the combat zone. Armed Forces Radio brought us the familiar songs in between battles. I can still mentally hear its theme song, “On the Sunny Side of

War has often been described on ninety percent boredom and ten percent terror. During the so-called boredom periods, radio was always available to us. An unpleasant experience sometimes brought us by

way of the radio was remarks by Axis Sally. She had an annoying habit of telling our outfit exactly where we were located and then reminding us that our wives or girlfriends were probably going out with other men. She might even go deep into our hearts by voicing our suspicions and playing the song “Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree With Anyone Else But Me.” An American born in Portland, Maine, she moved to Germany in 1934, later pledging allegiance to Germany, and in 1942 began broadcasting her notorious show. Despite Hitler’s final efforts culminating in the Battle of the Bulge, the Allies, both military and civilians at home, celebrated the impending victory by joining in singing and dancing to “Ac-Cen-Tchu-Ate the Positive.” Big Band music moved to softer more

sentimental melodies such as the ballad “When The Lights Go On Again All Over the World.” For British soldiers and Americans who had been stationed in the United Kingdom, tears would fill the eyes as they slowly danced and sang “There’ll Be Bluebirds Over The White Cliffs of Dover.” Throughout the entire war, there was a unity of private and national goals that did not exist in any subsequent wars in the 20th Century. Popular music reflected the same war aims as those of the government. In Big Band music, the power is in the beat. Rhythm is king. It is most certainly made for dancing. Unfortunately, for the Piedmont Symphony audience the aisles are not made for dancing. I challenge the audience, however, not to tap their feet in time to the drum.

Local Food Project

at Airlie


n September 17, Airlie Center hosted their annual Harvest Dinner and Dialogue in Airlie’s recently LEED Gold certified Pavilion. Sponsored by the Airlie Foundation and the Local Food Project at Airlie, the Harvest Dinner is a celebration of local food, local farms, and the people that bring it all together. It connects local farmers, activists, chefs and others who are involved in the issues surrounding local food production, utilization, distribution and promotion. Of course, any discussion about local food would not be complete without an accompanying dinner that highlights the food itself. Those in attendance this year were not disappointed, being served a gourmet dinner consisting of all local foods prepared by Airlie Center’s Executive Chef Jeff Witte and his staff. The Chef and his crew challenged themselves to use the freshest ingredients possible, getting much of the meal delivered from local vendors the day of the dinner. An unexpected delivery from the Airlie’s 4-acre, on-site organic vegetable garden inspired a fresh salad of mustard greens and sliced green tomatoes, and fish caught just a quarter of a mile from the table and only 24 hours before the event were served milk-poached on a bed of greens. Several of the guests supplied items included in the meal, like German Perilla, a local beekeeper whose honey served as a glaze for a local acorn squash salad, and poultry-guru Jesse Straight whose chicken was transformed into a roulade accompanied by grilled okra and lemon basil linguine. Over a delectable dinner, the 22 guests engaged in lively conversation and shared their experiences and best practices, with a brief interruption between courses for Chef Witte to introduce each. This year’s Harvest Dinner was attended by a diverse group of foodies, each bringing a unique perspective to the conversation. Connecting the various regional food interests at events such as Airlie’s Harvest Dinner are vital to increase awareness and education of issues around local food.

Piedmont Press & Graphics Celebrates 25th Anniversary It’s All in the Journey Printing Legacy

John Tedeschi standing in front of his new Heidelberg Press, 1973.

Tony running a 1934 Letterpress in 1993.


Piedmont Press & Graphics (PP&G) president Tony Tedeschi knew he wanted to be a printer—just like his father—since he was a very small child. Printing was in his blood. His first experience with a printing press was at four years old when his parents located a small Chief 15 printing press in the garage of the apartment complex in Los Angeles where they lived. By age six Tony accompanied his father, John Tedeschi, to Tedco Printing in downtown Los Angeles where Tony swept floors and did other small chores. Tony received his first printing press when he was six—a small rotary press with movable rubber type. At age seven, Tony acquired a Kelsey hand letterpress he used to make calling cards. A printer was born. John Tedeschi, Tony’s father, was an American success story. He was born and raised in a poor neighborhood in New York. With no formal education or training he began to pursue a career in printing after not finishing junior high school. John Tedeschi joined the Navy and, after his tour of duty ended, he headed to California to find printing work and subsequently founded Tedco Printing Company. Tony, his sister and his mother, Carol, followed from New York shortly thereafter.

Tony’s parents, John and Carol, worked very hard and lived a simple and humble life. Honesty, integrity, character, and the importance of education were the priceless gifts they gave their children. They instilled a strong code of ethics and personified that code of ethics in their own lives. John Tedeschi taught Tony that successful printing companies—like other successful businesses—are built on a foundation of honesty and reliability. All jobs must meet your highest standards. If it isn’t good enough for you—it isn’t good enough for your clients. Tedco Printing had a well-deserved reputation for excellent quality and exceptional customer service. John’s shop was always neat and clean and his presses were always in top condition. These traditions live on at PP&G today. The Tedeschi Family printing legacy spans another generation. Today Tony’s oldest son, Mike, is PP&G’s business manager. Mike has worked in printing with Tony since he was in elementary school. Sadly, John Tedeschi, a printer for 38 years, did not live to see his grandson continue the family printing tradition. He succumbed to lung cancer at the age of 59 in July 1992. ppg continued on page 48

TR Press & the History of Piedmont Press & Graphics

TR Pressroom 1992.

Moving the five color Adast Press to its new home.


The predecessor to PP&G—TR Press—was formed by partners Tony Tedeschi and Rob Barbaris to meet the growing needs of the local printing market. The goal was to provide premier printing services and outstanding customer service to Fauquier County and beyond. TR Press acquired Hunt Country Copy Center in 1987 and purchased Graphic Impressions the following year. The first office and printing plant was 250 square feet. The first month’s sales were $5,000. Six months later Tony bought Rob out of their partnership. TR Press offered Warrenton and the surrounding area the first instant printing and desktop publishing. A one-color duplicator did simple jobs such as newsletters, forms, letterhead, and envelopes. In January of 1989 TR Press consolidated operations in a 4,000 square-foot space at 17 South Fifth Street in Old Town Warrenton. Graphic design and printing were now under one roof. TR Press launched their campaign to keep Fauquier clean in October 1989. TR Press and its successor, PP&G, have

been doing so ever since. Recycling efforts include: ● reducing chemical hazards ● saving energy ● offering more recycled printing papers ● recycling as many products as possible In 1990 TR Press introduced full-color copying to Fauquier County and a young, talented designer named Holly Robinson (Tedeschi) joined TR Press as an intern. Although the design studio was a small loft-like room with uneven wood floors accessed by a rickety flight of stairs—a new era of outstanding design had begun. Also in 1990 TR Press introduced affordable color printing to Fauquier County. This enabled clients to take advantage of the power of color and still remain within their budgets. In 1994 Arcom Publishing acquired the business operations of TR Press and merged them with their printing company—Piedmont Press. The name of the company was changed to Piedmont Press & Graphics in 1995. Electronic film output, color proofing, and web page design became available

Warrenton Lifestyle

People Who Made a Difference As with any successful business—there are special people who contributed to the success. Warmest thanks to those who played an important role in PP&G’s success. Sally Murray—former executive director of the Fauquier County Chamber of Commerce. Sally was a driving force in helping Tony become active in local business organizations. She integrated Tony into the fabric of the local business community. Diane Jones—executive director of Gold Cup Association. Diane was one of the first local business leaders to use TR Press for her printing needs. In addition, she connected Tony with the printing needs of the equestrian world. Lou Emerson—co-owner of FauquierNow.com. As the publisher of Fauquier Magazine, Lou was on the same technology path as Tony. Lou opened the road to competition as a positive route to take. Ellen Emerson—co-owner of FauquierNow.com. Ellen taught Tony the value of supporting local businesses and how to be a good citizen. Tony came from Los Angeles where there was no local community so Ellen’s insight was invaluable. through Piedmont Press & Graphics in the mid-1990s. Digital network printers, a five-color computerized press, wide-format printing, and mailing services followed. New printing and graphic design technologies were added as they became available to expand the services available to PP&G’s clients. PP&G earned its first award for color printing in 1997. Since then PP&G has earned more than 150 First Place Awards and Awards of Excellent from the Printing Industries of Virginia competitions. In 2009 PP&G was honored with the Dietz Award for the best printer in their class in Virginia. On January 1, 1999, the printing operations returned to the ownership of TR Press and Tony and Holly Tedeschi. In 2001, Tony and Holly purchased land in the Lineweaver Technology Park. PP&G moved into their current space at 404 Belle Air Lane in 2005. Despite the demands of being a business owner and active parent, Tony believed in the value of a formal education. He regretted leaving college to pursue printing full time and rededicated himself to obtaining his degree. Tony enrolled at Lord Fairfax Community College in 1999.

Bill Harper— late marketing director of Jefferson Savings & Loan and publisher and executive editor of Discovery Publications. Bill was always very positive and encouraging. He was a strong source of encouragement and brightened many days for the team at TR Press.

The family’s first four color press arrives in Los Angeles, 1981.

He obtained his associate degree in business administration in 2001. In May 2007 Tony graduated Magna Cum Laude from Old Dominion University (ODU) with a bachelor’s degree in business administration. This was made possible by ODU’s Teletechnet Program available at Lord Fairfax Community College. In 2009 Tony received the Lord Fairfax Community College Distinguished Alumni Award. PP&G launched Warrenton Lifestyle Magazine in 2005 and Haymarket Lifestyle Magazine in 2010. The objectives for both publications are to: ● celebrate the terrific people in Warrenton and Haymarket ● provide greater exposure for local businesses and organizations to the people who live here—many of whom are commuters ● promote a Shop Locally Program ● invite local input and showcase the Best of Warrenton and Best of Haymarket Award winners ● keep the community apprised of changes and events as they occur In October 2009 PP&G and seven other local businesses created and launched the Greater Warrenton Chamber of Commerce (GWCC). Tony served as GWCC’s first president. He and the PP&G Team remain active in the organization today. Dorsey Signs & Designs was acquired by PP&G in 2011 and new devices were purchased to facilitate printing indoor and outdoor signage. Expanded sign options became available to

PP&G’s clients. Holly Tedeschi celebrated 20 years with PP&G in 2011. Except for the time she served as the production manager of the Journal Messenger newspaper in Manassas, Holly has dedicated her graphic design talents and expertise to a vast scope of PP&G client projects. During 2012, PP&G continued its expansion by purchasing the largest, fastest digital press in the region enabling PP&G to deliver its awardwinning quality with exceptionally fast turnaround times. Today, PP&G’s 10,000-square foot facility includes a: ● expanded customer service department ● digital print/copy center ● design/prepress department ● sign center ● offset pressroom ● bindery and finishing center ● mailing department ● Lifestyle magazines center Looking forward, Piedmont Press & Graphics continues to grow to serve its customers including better websites, an expanded customer service center, more publications, continually updated equipment base and greater design capabilities.

A Combination Definitely Worth Trying Mandarin Buffet & Sushi Asian cuisine is a favorite among Warrentonian’s, we love the distinct flavors, large menus and the uplifting message in after meal fortune cookie. Having such an affinity for it brings about one pesky issue – what do order? It’s hard to pinpoint the exact flavor experience you want when browsing the menu because every option is ideal. Thankfully, Mandarin Buffet & Sushi has resolved this problem for us. This family owned and operated restaurant provides Warrenton with the only buffet featuring Asian cuisine. Quality, handmade dishes are served up daily on the buffet and straight to the table in this stylish and comfortable place. They change their offerings frequently to create a mix of traditional favorites and savory fares at a price that is unbeatable. This combination keeps loyal guests coming back and new guests visiting.

The restaurants that appear in this section are chosen by Warrenton Lifestyle Magazine (WLM) food critics. We visit the establishments anonymously and pay for our own meals and drinks. Listings are chosen at the discretion of the editors. WLM does not accept compensation for listing events or venues.

Asian specialties top the buffet aisles with appetizers, soups, lo mein, fried rice and sushi as well as familiar hot dishes like vegetarian, beef, pork, chicken and seafood. Fill your plate with warm starters like Egg Rolls, Crab Rangoon or juicy Boneless Spare Ribs. Grab a soup to sip like their Egg Drop, Hot and Sour, or Wonton Soup and their crispy noodles for a textured crunch. Enjoy the Chicken with Garlic Sauce, Beef and Broccoli or the Kung Po Baby Shrimp. The Vegetarian Fried Rice and the House Lo Mein are both flavorful. Mandarin offers many more options on the buffet; all of their dishes are handmade daily and maintained throughout each lunch and dinner session. The buffet also features a sushi bar, which has freshly made rolls and sashimi. Try the Boston Roll with shrimp, cucumber and lettuce or the Philadelphia Roll with salmon and cream cheese. Popular items are the Avocado Roll, California Roll, Spicy Shrimp Roll and Spicy Tuna Roll. For a striking taste and mini adventure try the Ika (octopus), the Tobiko (fish row), the Tako (squid) or the Dragon Roll with eel, cucumber and avocado.

November 2012

As with any good buffet, Mandarin provides excellent options to satisfy that sweet tooth. Choose from mini cakes, Chinese Sugar Donuts and Hershey’s Ice cream. If you prefer a plated dinner, place an order from their menu; there are over 100 menu items available including Special Combination Plates, Egg Foo Young, Chow Mein, Sweet & Sour, Chef’s Specialties, Moo Shu and Chop Suey. Sushi can also be ordered with as few as two pieces or up to eight. Mandarin Buffet & Sushi is located at 514 Fletcher Drive in the Northrock Shopping Center near Harris Teeter.
