Thanks & Giving It’s a good time of year. The air is turning crisp and the farm fields are full of bent cornstalks or being plowed under and put to bed for the winter. As a culture, we’re not quite as connected to the earth and to the harvest season that our ancestors once were, though I am happy that we have this yearly symbolic reminder of the abundance in our lives. While we may not be putting up stores of crops to sustain us through winter, this time of year, we continue to gather our harvest of other kinds, to take stock, and to be truly thankful. The child returning home from college, the veteran returning from duty overseas, the chance to celebrate together with an elder relative that is slowly fading like the last bright leaves on the maple tree, are all reminders of the things that really matter in the holidays. In a few weeks, we’ll gather that bounty and huddle together by the fireplace or the dining table, telling stories, sharing laughter and sharing a meal, and there will be warmth. That warmth is multiplied when we know that we have been able to share simple blessings with others by helping out at the food pantry, supporting those struggling with illness, or being there for someone who thought they were alone. It’s important not to forget that. Looking at our calendar, November actually looks like it has a healthy portion of free time. I encourage you to use that time to get out and explore our community. Visiting our local merchants in Old Town, outlying areas and local craft fairs put on by some very good causes will save you time, frustration and stress during December. It’s time to relax, avoid the malls and box stores entirely, and find unique items for everyone on your gift list right here in town purchased from artisans and shop owners who care. That will make the season merry. We’ve got a jam-packed issue this month. I hope you enjoy reading, and I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving.

Hunting & veterans’
outdoor recreation heritage For those who have witnessed the complicated chaos of war firsthand, the uncomplicated act of baiting a hook and casting a line can be a salve for the soul. The quietude of the rippling waters of Lake Anna was the site of a recent bass fishing activity where veterans and supporters gathered to reel in a day’s worth of angling and fun. On September 13th, seventy-four participants assembled on the dock at Sturgeon Creek Marina to weigh in their catch. Among them, veterans of America’s military actions from Vietnam to Iraq and Afghanistan. Bass Pro Shops donated tackle and tackle boxes to the veterans so that they were able to take more than memories from the experience. Many local fishermen and women volunteered their time and their boats to make the day successful. The Virginia Wildlife Foundation contributed guide services, as ORHF Program Director Bob Critcher states the organization must “give a tremendous amount of appreciation to the Fredericksburg Elks Lodge Post 875. We really could not have pulled it off if it had not been for the financial [support] and volunteering from their group.” Cecil Campbell, Owner and President of Cecil’s Tractors in Warrenton, and ORHF Board member, has accompanied many medically discharged members of the armed services on hunting expeditions of all kinds; in the local area and further afield. He has this to say about the experience : “I have worked alongside ORHF for 6

fund serves those who served seven years. In that time, I’ve seen lives impacted by the great outdoors and good hearts. Thank you to everyone who has helped us to raise funds in support of our vets.” Those sentiments are echoed by ORHF President, Jack Hazel, “In the seven years I have been involved with ORHF, it has been a very personal experience with the troops. We cannot heal all their injuries in an afternoon or even 3 days, but we can open a window to the future. Fresh air, a campfire, camaraderie, and people that care can move these troops forward. I have seen it happen-one troop at a time.” Hazel is owner at Warrenton-based Angler Development, and Virginia Monster Plots. Many may not be aware that a major charity that rebuilds confidence and solace for America’s returned veterans is located in an unassuming office on Shirley Avenue in Warrenton. The Outdoor Recreation Heritage Fund (ORHF), as originally founded in 2001 by the Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA) organization, began facilitating excursions for returned, injured, and ill combat veterans to once again experience the simple joys of the outdoors under supervised care and with adaptive occupational equipment. As the programs grew, it soon became apparent that they were beneficial for veterans beyond those who came home with visible injuries. In an effort to expand their services to those who have willingly sacrificed for our country, the Outdoor Recreation Heritage Fund became an independent organization in 2012. The organization still continues to support the outdoor activities of PVA, while reaching out to other returnedNovember 2014
From hunting activities and hot air ball ooning in Colorado to catching the “big one” right here in Virginia, ORH F is committed to getting vets back outdoors.

warfighter organizations like the United States Marine Corps Wounded Warrior Regiment. The Outdoor Recreation Heritage Fund hosts a variety of outdoor activities for America’s veterans, active duty or retired, to engage in favorite activities and build camaraderie with their brothers and sisters in arms. Their major event, Kansas Salutes the Troops, a pheasant hunting excursion held in Fall River, Kansas brings veterans from across the country to the Flint Oak resort for three days of honor, hospitality and outdoor activities catered to their needs. This is the charity’s major national event, with other smaller localized events

organized around specific sporting seasons. As part of the adaptive hunting activities, veterans are paired with experienced mentors who are trained to provide guidance on safe shooting positions, fitting and use of personal protective gear, and the use of specially adapted equipment. Specialized wheelchair accessible equipment, such as a raised European shooting blind, make it possible for veterans facing mobility issues to come off the sidelines and participate in the hunt. In War Trauma and Its Wake: Expanding the Circle of Healing, (Scurfiled, Platoni; Rutledge Press, 2013.) a handbook that takes on returning warfighters dealing with challenges brought on by injuries and PTSD, the Outdoor Recreation Heritage Fund’s activities are highlighted specifically as providing effective therapeutic support through recreational activity. “The successful completion of the hunt brings about an increased sense of success and mastery. The physical rigors and durability required of the disabled veteran in the completion of the mission lead to a perception of renewed personal strength… Many veterans developed early in their lives a love of outdoor recreational activities such as camping, hiking, and hunting. PVA-sponsored deer hunting expeditions allow them the opportunity to reconnect with nature and re-experience a place of relaxation and peace.”

The Fauquier Water and Sanitation Authority Part 1: The WSA was ‘An idea whose time had come’ by John T. Toler Chartered in May 1964, the Fauquier County Water and Sanitation Authority (WSA) is responsible for supplying public water and sewer services to homes and businesses in areas of Fauquier County, mainly in the Service Districts created by the County Comprehensive Plan. Starting out as a small agency with no assets, over the past 50 years, the WSA has grown slowly. It has fixed assets currently valued at just under $100 million. Fresh water production includes 35 wells, eight major storage tanks, and about 100 miles of water lines. Annual water production is approximately 523 million gallons, or about 1.43 million gallons per day. As for wastewater treatment, the WSA owns and operates facilities at Remington (2 million gallons per day), Marshall (640,000 gpd), and Vint Hill (950,000 gpd); 16 pumping stations and about 80 miles of sewer pipe. The authority currently serves 6,300 customer accounts. Because of the relatively small customer base spread from Paris to Remington, achieving reasonable economies of scale has been an ongoing challenge. Annual operating expenses of about $7.9 million are funded by WSA customers through service fees; capital expenses are funded by builders and the development community. The WSA staff now stands at 43 full-time employees, with 12 in management and administration, and 31 in operations and maintenance. In spite of its long-term presence and the importance of its services, the origin and fiscal structure of the WSA is not universally understood. But to say that the creation of the authority a half-century ago was “an idea whose time had come” would be an understatement. For years, the incorporated towns of Warrenton and Remington had public water and sewer systems, built with town tax money and operated by their public works departments. In New public water systems supplying residents of Catlett and The Plains were built in 1978, paid for by grants and loans totaling over $750,000. The elevated tank shown above stands just outside of Catlett. 10

the unincorporated town of Marshall, the water and sewer systems were built and operated as private commercial enterprises, as was the water system in The Plains. By the 1950s, new residential developments were being built in rural areas, using community wells and private drainfields. One of the first was Cyril E. Albrecht’s Rock Springs Estates on Route 605 east of Warrenton. More soon followed, primarily around Warrenton and in Southern Fauquier. Growth was coming, and county
Virginia Water and Sewer Authorities Act of 1950 was already in place, outlining the scope and operation of the authority. With the awarding of its charter on May 10, 1964, the WSA was formally established. Unlike tax-funded public works departments, the authority is by definition an independent entity, intended to be self-sufficient and supported solely by the revenues received from its customers’ service fees, and the connection/availability fees charged to developers. The WSA is not governed by
This map, published in the Nov. 17, 1983 edition of The Fauquier Democrat, shows the communities east of Warrenton with individual water systems that the WSA proposed to consolidate. leaders knew they had to prepare for it. Part of the urgency was because it was predicted that the population of Fauquier County, which until the 1950s was less than 30,000, would reach 75,000 by 1980. In October 1963, the Fauquier County Planning Commission adopted a resolution “...urgently recommending that the Board of Supervisors establish a county water and sewer authority,” which would provide some measure of oversight and control in the future. Enabling legislation in the form of the 12
elected county officials, but by a separate Board of Directors appointed by the Board of Supervisors. It was set up this way in order to keep the authority autonomous and politically neutral, especially where growth and land use issues were concerned. WSA directors serve four-year terms, and once appointed can only be replaced by voluntary resignation, or when their terms end. Like other public service providers, the WSA is regulated by the State Corporation Commission, with
additional requirements imposed by the Virginia Department of Health (VDH), the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (VDEQ); and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The work of the WSA begins
The original five directors were chosen to represent each of the county’s magisterial districts. Appointed were Jason Paige of Delaplane (Marshall District), who was as the first chairman; William C. Grayson, of Upperville (Scott); Bud Beane, of Catlett (Cedar Run); Charlie Crockett, of Midland (Lee); and R.J. Wadsworth, of Warrenton (Center). County Planning Administrator Harry Morris served as the meeting coordinator, and later secretary. The scope of the work faced by the original WSA board was daunting, and despite their best efforts, much of the work and planning to meet future water supply needs – including a system of impoundments – never materialized. Likewise, plans to build needed wastewater treatment plants were placed on hold due to a longterm moratorium on new plants in the Occoquan Watershed. Concerned about the number of subdivisions being built utilizing community water systems, the WSA adopted a new policy that would be critical in the years to come: requiring developers to work with the authority before building new water and sewer systems. Once completed, the systems would either be turned over to the respective homeowners’ association or to the WSA, which would reimburse them for the costs over a period of years. Until then, Fauquier County’s only venture into the “water business” was ownership of the spring-fed reservoir in the village of Paris, which was originally built as a Works Progress Administration (WPA) project in the 1930s. The 1970s brought several important changes to the WSA. Harry Morris resigned as secretary in 1970, and was replaced by Richard H. Beach, who served until 1974, when C.E. Maddox Jr. assumed that role. In 1972, Martin J. O’Connell (Center District) replaced Jason Paige as chairman, Warrenton Lifestyle

and served until 1976, when Dan O’Connell succeeded him. Also in 1976, Mark W. Jeffries, P.E., who had joined the WSA in June 1975 as an inspector, was appointed the authority’s first executive secretary/manager. Jeffries left the WSA at the end of 1979, and was replaced in February 1980 by Charles Vivier The years between 1975-1985 saw great changes for both Fauquier County and the WSA.

bonds to finance improvements and upgrades in Phase I of what became known as the New Baltimore Area Water System. Later, Phase II would supply water to the Rolling Acres I and II developments (57 connections), as well as South Hills, Section II (48 connections). The WSA was also busy in other parts of the county, with an overhaul of the Paris system and construction of a 20,000-gallon storage tank in 1978. The Turnbull water system on the Springs Road, built in 1973, was
The wastewater treatment plant built by the WSA in the late 1970s served until 1994, when work started to double the capacity from 750,000 gallons per day to 1.5 million. This is how the plant looked before it was totally rebuilt. water systems in Rock Springs, as well as Meadowvale, Mill Run, Oak Ridge and Marstella I and II, which had been developed by Melvin K. Helmick. In 1976, residents of those subdivisions petitioned the WSA to take over and run their water systems, and negotiations began soon afterward. In June 1977, the Rock Springs system (53 connections) was acquired by the authority from John Long for $15,000, and the Helmick system (225 connections) was purchased the following August for $250,000. Both systems were in need of upgrading, and in October 1978, the WSA sold $350,000 in water revenue 14
turned over to the WSA in 1978. It was improved with a 6,000-gallon storage tank and additional water lines. The authority worked with the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Farmers Home Administration (FmHA) to secure grants totaling $573,200 and a $178,700 loan to build new facilities to provide water for The Plains and Catlett. The Plains system was completed in August 1978, and the Catlett system the following December. The WSA was also involved with sewer systems during those years.
The authority had purchased the Marshall wastewater treatment plant in 1969, and in 1974 began pursuing grants from the Environmental Protection Agency, Farmers Home Administration and State Water Control Board to build the Marshall plant into a regional facility serving Marshall and The Plains. The money was made available, and in 1975, construction began on collection systems for Marshall and The Plains, and an interceptor line connecting The Plains with the

Construction also started on a new 160,000 gallon-perday aeration treatment plant outside of Marshall, which was completed in May 1976. Work on a new facility to replace the old Remington wastewater treatment plant and the sewage lagoon at Bealeton began in 1977, but due to financing problems, suffered months of delays. Once the project was finished, the old Remington plant and the lagoon were abandoned, and the WSA assumed ownership. Warrenton Lifestyle

Growth strains during the 1980s
General Manager Vivier, who was best remembered for his proposal to build a $6 million, 40-mile loop connecting the various water systems, resigned in November 1980. At that point, the authority was operating at a loss. Steven C. Gordon, who had joined the WSA in July 1979 as the operations manager, was put in charge, and to cut costs, some staff positions were combined and vacancies were left JASON PAIGE was the first chair- unfilled. In an move to increase revenues, in May 1981, the man of the WSA, serving from WSA board asked the county to enforce the ordinance 1964 to 1972. requiring all property owners in areas served by the authority to connect to their water and sewer lines as paying customers. As the financial picture improved, the authority made additional acquisitions. In October 1982, the Broken Hills water system was bought from the Lake Brittle Development Co. for $150,000. The system included a working water production plant, four wells, piping and 168 MARTIN J. O’CONNELL, who owned and operated Warrenton’s connections.

By 1985, Millwood III, Mosby Woods, Howell Manor and Grapewood I were added, and in 1986, Snow Hill I, Cedar Knolls, Auburn Mill and Grapewood II and III were served by the authority. But as more homes were added, it became increasingly clear that the older water systems had been designed and built with little or no provision for expansion, leaving the WSA with inadequate wells and storage CHARLIE CROCKETT represented tanks. Developments around Warrenton were especially Lee District on the WSA board from vulnerable during the hot summer months, and in July its inception in 1964 until retiring 1983, a low water table and equipment malfunctions caused water pressure to drop and service eventually failed for in 1986. customers in Marstella Estates, Oak Ridge, South Hills and Rolling Acres. In 1985, the Marshall sewage treatment plant violated its discharge permit, and the State Water Control Board filed a court order demanding that the WSA correct the deficiencies. The New Baltimore Water System, which was supposed to be fully operational by December 1985, was not finished until late 1986. Gordon resigned in October 1986, and was replaced by Assistant Manager John Orr, who resigned a month RICHARD H. BEACH served as the later. This left only Scott Rice, also an assistant manager, secretary of the WSA from 1970 to in charge of the operation. The WSA board launched a 1974. nationwide search for a permanent manager, and hired Roy T. Huffman, of Kingswood, Texas, who assumed the duties as general manager on April 1, 1987. R.

well and system individually.” According to Crosby, there was very little interaction between the Board of Supervisors and the WSA while he was county administrator. One exception was the effort by Cedar Run District Supervisor David Botts to get the authority to do something about the sewage problems along the Route 28 corridor, but “no one else would champion the project,” according to Crosby. Dan O’Connell (Center District) was appointed to the WSA board in 1976, and served as the chairman from 1978 until 1985. Crosby remembers O’Connell as an aggressive advocate for the WSA, who pressed for more support from the Board of Supervisors. In 1984, Bonnie Downes (Scott District), a New Baltimore businesswoman, was appointed to the board by Supervisor John B. Adams. Mrs. Downes was the first woman on the authority board, and served as chairman from 1993-1996.
Growth – and risks
In 1990, former WSA Deputy Manager John C. Laws replaced Huffman. Acquisition of community water systems continued into the 1990s, at which time the board adopted a policy that “growth pays for growth.” The reasoning was that existing customers should not subsidize speculative development into areas not being served by the WSA. Developers who wanted public water and/or sewer service were required to cover the WSA’s capital expenses in advance through “availability fees,” based on the number of connections and the cost of delivering the service to the project’s infrastructure. Factored into the fees was the cost of any necessary expansion of WSA’s fresh and wastewater systems. Advocates of “growth pays for growth” included WSA directors Mrs. Downes, Tom diZerega (Marshall
District, 1991-1997), Orman “Pat” Padgett (Cedar Run District, 19932003) and Earl H. Douple Jr. (Center District, 1994-2003 and 2005-2013). This policy was not popular with developers who wanted to “externalize costs,” but the most costly issue caused by speculation came from an unexpected quarter. Looking for a way to facilitate growth in the Opal Service District, in 1991 the Board of Supervisors began advocating that the WSA bring sewer service from Bealeton to Opal. BCM Engineers Inc., of Chantilly was hired to design the project and determine financing options. The financial model showed that even with contributions from the businesses and property owners who would be served by the line, construction costs and debt service would be significant. If the project would ever pay for itself, it was critical that the county rezone the property, and aggressively promote development of the Opal Service District. Laws left the authority in June 1993, and was replaced by retired Navy officer C. D. “Dave” Binning, who rewrote the management and operational policies of the WSA to make them more efficient and customer-friendly, and worked to foster a better relationship with the Board of Supervisors. On an operational level, Binning improved the water systems in the developments east of Warrenton, most of which were at or above capacity. A new well was drilled to serve the village of Paris, and an elevated storage tank built to serve the community of Turnbull. The capacity of the Remington/Bealeton wastewater treatment facility was almost doubled, and a new 250,000-gallon elevated water storage tank constructed at Bealeton. In late 1995, the R. G. Griffith Co. of Chantilly submitted the winning bid of $1,700,396 to build the main
Bealeton-to-Opal sewer line, and General Excavation Inc. of Opal won the bid for the force line at $126,724. In order to finance the project, a loan totaling $2,112,175 was secured from the Virginia Revolving Loan Fund, for 4.75 percent interest, to be paid over 20 years. However, the requisite rezoning never came through, and as a result there was very little growth in Opal – and only limited revenue to offset the costs of the project. This resulted in a financial shortfall that the WSA had to deal with for years. In 1997, Binning accepted the position as Chief Engineer at the Fairfax County Water Authority, where he worked for the next ten years. His experience working in Fairfax gave him added insight into the situation in Fauquier County, where he continues to reside and is a WSA customer. Binning notes that from an administrative standpoint, the two authorities are almost identical, since they were both established under the same regulations, and even used the same legal counsel (Hunton & Williams). “The difference is that when I left Fairfax in 2007, we were serving 1.6 million people,” he said. “It’s not the way you do business, but the population and density of the area you serve. I had 18 to 20 water accounts per mile of pipe in Fairfax, and between 0.4 and 0.5 per mile in Fauquier.” As a result, “…the water rates charged in Fairfax are typically the lowest in the state, but in Fauquier – where a lot of infrastructure must be built to serve relatively few people – the rates are among the highest,” according to Binning. Part 2, to be published in December, deals with growth and change at the WSA over the past 20 years, and the challenges that lie ahead.

Fauquier Health Dr. Kate Sullivan Joins Fauquier Health Urology Urologist Dr. Kate Sullivan recently joined Fauquier Health Urology in Warrenton. Most recently, she was a major in the United States Air Force, and a chief of Urology. Dr. Sullivan said, “I accepted the position with Fauquier Health because the hospital provides superior care and service to patients of the greater Warrenton community. After meeting Dr. Brian DeCastro, my partner, I realized we would work well together as a team and bring excellent quality care to the community.” Urology is a specialty that deals with diseases of the male and female urinary tract -- including kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra -- and male reproductive organs. Urological conditions can occur in both sexes and at any age. Although urology is considered a surgical specialty, a knowledge of internal medicine, pediatrics, gynecology and other specialties is necessary because of the wide variety of clinical problems that may be encountered. In three years as a urologist, Dr. Sullivan has found that she especially enjoys this diversity of patients and surgeries.
She says that while people think of urological conditions as men’s issues, she disagrees. “Women, like men, can also have kidney stones, bladder cancer, kidney cancer, and incontinence.” Indeed, kidney stones are one of the most common problems she encounters. Dr. Sullivan is grateful that her job offers her so much personal satisfaction. “It is very gratifying when I encounter a patient in pain or in a stressful situation and I am able to intervene and resolve their pain or help the patient understand what is going on and decrease their stress. I strive to provide excellent patient-centered care, every day.” Dr. Sullivan attended George Washington University School of Medicine for medical school from 2001 to 2005 and completed her urologic residency training at the University of Colorado Denver from 2005 to 2011. She is thrilled to be in Fauquier County. “I think it’s going to be a great place to raise my family,” she says. At the same time, she realizes there may be downsides: “I like to cook and garden, but I was recently welcomed to gardening in Virginia with my first bout of poison ivy.”

The Power Of Psychotherapy by Dr. Robert B. Iadeluca
he dispute started approximately four hundred years ago when René Descartes, French philosopher, stated that the mind and the body are distinct – a thesis which is now called “mind-body dualism.” He argued that it is possible for one to exist without the other. The question of whether they are separate and whether the action of one can affect the other is still being debated today. As the age of Renaissance began to take over, philosophers began to examine this topic and men like Descartes seized on mind as their special province. At the same time the newly developing discipline of science chose to examine matter. The result was that science split off from philosophy with the two disciplines going off in opposite directions. Science with its subtopics of chemistry and biology led naturally into the field of medicine. Doctors and medical researchers spent their time examining the heart, the lungs, the muscles, the circulatory system and other material aspects of the human being. So it continued through the seventeenth and eighteenth century. Toward the end of the nineteenth century Wilhelm Wundt, a German physician, separated himself from biology and described psychology, as he called it, an independent field of study. The two points of view were miles apart. Physicians, as scientists, followed the method of learning about nature. Psychologists, with their basis of philosophy, were led to learning about themselves. The two approaches continue this separation. And to this day the question remains – Can these two substances with completely different natures interact causally? Can a thought change a body? Can psychotherapy (often called “the talking therapy” by laymen) help cure a physical illness? We are rapidly moving toward the answer. Science in the form of technology has only since the start of the 21st century furnished us with almost foolproof methods of determining the facts. The advent of functional imaging including single photon emission CT (SPECT), positron emission tomography (PET), and functional MRI has made it possible to study changes at the brain systems level while the patient is simultaneously undergoing psychotherapy. Research results indicate that cognitive behavioral therapy (the primary method I use) does indeed alter brain function in
patients suffering from such illnesses as major depressive disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder and posttraumatic stress disorder. To return to the four-century-old question – can a thought indeed change a body? Recent evidence suggests that the “talking cure” and medication have much more in common than had been thought. Both produce surprisingly similar changes in the brain. Medication works, in part, by enhancing the neurotransmitter serotonin. Cognitive behavioral therapy focuses on changing distorted patterns of thinking. Learning literally changes the structure and function of the brain. Both treatment modalities demonstrate similar changes in the brain. However, the relapse rate for major depression is lower in patients treated with psychotherapy than in those treated with antidepressants. Therapy is a brain changing relationship. The structure of the brain is dynamic and can be changed (plasticity). The learning process that occurs in psychotherapy alters the strength of the connection between the nerve cells (synapses). Therapy helps to rewire the brain which is why relapse following this procedure is ordinarily lower than when one uses medication. A skilled and experienced psychotherapist provides the patient with the specific requirements to make the changes needed. He adjusts his knowledge to the specific patient’s background and current needs. He knows the brain’s rules and helps the patient practice them. Psychotherapy is an applied science. Laypeople tend to think that talk therapy is not “real” while they associate medications with hard science and physiologic change. The effectiveness of any program ultimately is mediated by the brain and the nervous system. If the brain does not change, there won’t be a change in behavior or emotion. The question regarding the unity of the body and the mind has been answered. The next step is the need for the general populace to believe this.

Preparing Tomorrow’s Female Leaders Today by Aimée O’Grady
n a recent interview, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said that she felt alone on the bench beside her male colleagues. That changed in 2009, when she was joined by Sonia Sotomayor, and then again in 2010, when Elena Kagan was appointed to the Supreme Court. In 1993, Ginsburg was only the second female to sit on the Supreme
Court, after Sandra Day O’Connor. Her appointment was the start of a shift in female justice appointments. Within one year of Ginsburg’s appointment, two more women were appointed Associate Justices. Today, over one-third of Supreme Court Associate Justice seats are occupied by women. The Supreme Court is just
one example of how women are increasingly present in key leadership roles. Another is the office of Secretary of State. In January 2005, Condoleezza Rice became only the second female secretary of state, after Madeleine Albright. In 2009, Hillary Rodham Clinton succeeded her in that role, serving in that capacity until 2013. These achievements can be seen

as a reflection of a cultural shift that values the female perspective and has helped increase the number of women seen in powerful, leadership positions, who act as positive role models for today’s young girls. Here in the Piedmont Region, a Warrenton group is taking the helm to provide today’s girls with the leadership tools required to pursue their dreams with confidence. Girls on the Run, a national organization with local chapters, empowers girls to ensure that there are always women on the bench, from the Little League Dugout bench all the way to the Supreme Court bench.
GOTR girls used all of their lap counters (jelly bands) to form one long positive cord, symbolizing how good it feels to be intentionally positive in how we respond to life and building a strong bond by working together. Another practice had the girls sticking it to the coaches with colored stickers for each lap they ran. Pictured below are coaches Sissy Thorpe and Madeline Radigan.
The Inaugural Program
Several weeks into its inaugural season, Girls on the Run Piedmont already has girls participating from 9 schools in Fauquier and Culpeper counties. Highland School and C. Hunter Ritchie Elementary School host two teams comprised of 12 and 29 girls, respectively, an increase in the anticipated number of participants during the planning phase. Girls on the Run inspires girls to be healthy, joyful and confident through a proven 10-week curriculum that creatively integrates running to provide girls with well-rounded good health. Intended for girls in grades 3-5, the group meets after school for curriculum lessons and 5K training. At a recent session the girls were reminded to “always wear a real smile” and to “be happy for the things you have.” During one activity, a participant explained how a recent event was cancelled on account of rain. Rather than be upset, she was happy to simply spend time with her brothers.
Sissy Thorpe, Girls on the Run Piedmont Council Director, explains that the group, which meets twice a week, intends to give girls a safe haven to be themselves, “Girls don’t always know what to do with their feelings and often see things in black and white. We aim to teach the girls how to interpret their feelings and understand how they are all unique and talented. Our program helps girls appreciate themselves the way they are, as well as other people.” In many cases, the curriculum taught in the program is reinforced at home, thanks to talking points sent home by Thorpe. However, in some cases, Girls on the Run is the only positive reinforcement a girl will receive. “Our program gets girls of the same age together, in an environment where they feel safe, are not being judged, and are not being told they are wrong. This program lets them share their experiences with peers and simply be themselves,” explains Thorpe. Diversity is key among the participants. The girls represent different socio-economic backgrounds within the Piedmont Region. Regardless of their differences, they are able to find a lot of common ground, and most of the commonalities center around friendships.
A third grader in the program was introduced to the group at a fair in Old Town Warrenton and says it was the running that caught her attention. “We play a lot of games and I’ve made new friends,” she says of the group. “I’m happy and excited to be a part of it. Another third grader in the group describes herself as an athletic girl who was also attracted to the running component. One of her favorite parts of Girls on the Run is the coaches, who she describes as all fun. She thinks the group is important because “if you are told your whole life you are ugly, you will stay inside when you should be out with your friends.” She has also enjoyed meeting new friends and playing games. One of the fourth grade members has a different perspective. “Some of my friends are mean. This group helps me learn about friendships so I can help my friends be nicer.” She has learned that sometimes, when people are being mean, it has nothing to do with the person on the receiving end of that behavior, but rather something to do with the antagonist. “If you don’t think you are good, it’s bad because it might prevent you from doing good things.”
The Value of Self-Esteem
A girl with positive self-esteem will feel secure about her skills and talents, regardless of how smart or successful others say she is. Ultimately, secure girls will express their feelings, make positive choices and demonstrate care and concern for others. According to Michelle Kelley, Licensed Counselor and owner of Girls Stand Strong in Warrenton, this is a Warrenton Lifestyle

GOTR girls gained one letter for each lap they ran to form a sentence on their arm. Each letter represented when they said something positive about themselves, practicing positive self talk to improve their confidence and feeling of self-worth. a Girl, and Colbie Caillat’s song, Try, just to name a few, all encourage women and girls to be satisfied with who they are, to be authentic, and to make healthy role models easily accessible to young girls during their formative years. In addition, groups like Girls on the Run are pivotal in building self-esteem to ensure that in the future girls face critical decisions with strength and confidence, whether it involves careers, relationships, or health.
Nearly halfway into the program, Girls on the Run has a lot in store for the next few weeks, Thorpe explains, “The girls are training for a 5K run that will take place November 15 at Verdun Adventure Bound. It is a great way to conclude the program and reinforce how exercise can have a positive impact on our mind as well as our body.” Another component of the program is giving back to the community. “Incorporating a community project reminds the girls of the differences they can make right here in their home,” says Thorpe. Girls on the Run participants are currently brainstorming to determine what community project they will take on.
great time to be a girl. For generations, the media has objectified women and set unachievable standards with respect to ideal beauty. Television, movies, video games, magazines, the Internet and advertisements have poorly portrayed girls and women in a sexual manner through clothing choices, make-up, expressions, and posturing for decades. The sexual portrayal of female figures jeopardizes girls’ selfimage and healthy development. Kelley explains that “girls are more susceptible to internalizing messages and these messages strike when girls are just beginning to understand who they are.” But thanks in part to social media, the word is getting out that it is time to change the messages sent to young girls. Social media is now challenging the Internet, fashion and music industries, and advertisements. The new message is that the female perspective is a necessary component to all positions of power and leadership. The Dove Campaign for Real Beauty, Always Run Like
The Next Generation
Justice Ginsburg once asked, “Who will take responsibility of the next generation?” According to Thorpe, “Each of us is responsible for the next generation; in our ability to be intentional in our decision making, to always do the right thing and make a positive impression. We each have a choice to accept the challenge to lead by example and show our children the right way—even if it goes against the grain. We teach our children to be leaders, not followers.” For more information about Girls on the Run Piedmont, visit www.gotrpiedmont.org or contact Sissy Thorpe at email@example.com.

William A. Hazel Jr. MD
ctober brought an opportunity for businesses to come together for a Fauquier Chamber of Commerce sponsored presentation by Dr. Bill Hazel, Secretary of Health and Human Services for the Commonwealth. The room was filled with about 130 attendees that represented most every major business group in the area. Of course the conversation included discussion on the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid expansion, but also about the dynamics of citizen empowerment as opposed to “free services.” The discussion began with a question from a physician in the audience that questioned Dr. Hazel on
any benefits to businesses in Virginia who support wellness programs as part of their benefits package. The dialogue that ensued among attendees and Dr. Hazel recognized that wellness and healthcare standards will more effectively be addressed as a cultural issue. It was said that business and business owners will be the driver of the effort. The general practitioner in audience stated clearly, “the self-starters are in this room. They are the ones that will make a difference!” How true and how timely that statement is! Remember your world history? It was the merchants and tradesmen who really inspired the social change we recognize as the French Revolution. Consider, too, the fact that it was business owners who inspired the Warrenton Town Council to contemplate adding a Town Economic Development person to work in tandem with the County Economic Development team to enhance business in Warrenton. It was business owners who rallied together to create and empower a new Agricultural Education Council and Women’s Business Council. It was businesses who created and established the Fauquier Fair and Piedmont Harvest Festival. It is business leaders who are developing the Leadership Fauquier initiative to grow knowledgeable and well-rounded leadership to ensure the long-term
economic and cultural prosperity of our community. If economics drive a society, it should be no surprise that business people are the drivers of economics. Leagues of merchants and tradesmen throughout “modern history” have had a greater impact on social outcomes than any other group, second only to religion. Have you as business owners and entrepreneurs considered the incredible possibilities before you? Join the Fauquier Chamber for the Annual Awards Dinner and Meeting on November 15 and look around the room. The movers and shakers of our community are there. They are our award nominees and they are the unsung community heroes who greet you warmly everyday as you purchase your coffee or insurance, cash your check, buy a gift, give a donation, ask for help, and vet an idea. They celebrate with you, keep you humble and stand beside you. They are your community. Your chamber of commerce is the conduit for implementing social and economic change. I encourage you to join, participate, be ambitious, be passionate about your community and, most of all, understand that the potential for success is probably exponentially larger than what even your most ambitious goals are.
Lynne Richman Bell is 2014 Chair of the Board of the Fauquier Chamber of Commerce. She has been involved in various economic development initiatives and committees through the years including service on the Warrenton Economic Development Authority, 7 years as President of the Southern Fauquier Business Owners Association, service as member and Chair of the Balanced Growth Alliance, and Charter Chair and Member of the Fauquier County Business Advisory Committee. Lynne is the Executive Director at Boys and Girls Club of Fauquier, lives in Sumerduck, VA. 32

Year-Round Grant Program to Benefit Local Non-Profits by Amy Petty
Has your organization been considering a new, innovative idea – but just doesn’t have the funding? Make It Happen! might be the perfect fit. The first grant opportunity from the Fauquier Health Foundation will open its application process on November 18 to non-profits with short-term projects that benefit the health and wellness of Fauquier, Rappahannock and northern Culpeper counties. The Fauquier Health Foundation, formed as a grant-making foundation after the partnership of Fauquier Health and LifePoint Hospitals, has plans to offer three grant cycles annually. The Make It Happen! program doesn’t have an application deadline – it is a rolling, year-round program that will offer $2,000 to $10,000 in grant money to fund high impact projects that can be completed in fewer than 90 days. Says Christy Connolly, president and CEO of the Fauquier Health Foundation, “We’re so excited to announce our first grant offering. The board and staff have spent the past year on education, research and infrastructure so we can
have a thoughtful approach to our grant making. Make It Happen! is a program that can have a quick impact based on the timing from decision to completion of the project. We will be looking for innovative projects – ideas that are outside the scope of an organization’s regular activities.” The rolling Make It Happen! program will be followed by grants made available in the spring and fall of 2015 (details forthcoming in March 2015). To learn about the program, the Fauquier Health Foundation is hosting a meeting to review the program and answer questions from potential applicants. The meeting will be held on Friday, November 7, at 10 am in the Fauquier Hospital Sycamore Room. For more information, visit www. fauquierhealthfoundation.org or call 540-680-4100. Applicants should note that grants to individuals, dinners, event sponsorship and fundraising will not be considered. Other restrictions are listed on the website.

Falcons Cheerleaders Compete on the Ground and in the Air Ready? OK! Stop by the “old’ gymnasium at Fauquier High School on any given Tuesday or Thursday night and you just may find yourself in the midst of a finely orchestrated acrobatic production. The Fauquier High School Competition Cheerleading squad’s 20 members and three alternates are gearing up for the 2014 season, and things are looking bright for the young team.
F-A-L-C-O-N-S ! FALCONS!! FALCONS!! Are the BEST! In 2013 the team burst forth onto the VHSL competition cheer scene with a two and a half minute routine that took them all the way to the State Championship, where they placed 7th. But, that accomplishment didn’t come easy. Countless hours
spent in conditioning at the gym, hundreds of repetitions of tumbling and stunts, and willing sacrifice of free time prepared the team to face a more experienced lineup of schools. The FHS Competition Cheer Team formed in 2012 out of a base of interest among sideline cheerleaders, dance team members and gymnasts seeking to compete at the intervarsity level. Tumbling, stunting and

choreographed dance are the major features that differentiate this sport from the more traditional perception of cheerleading. Since the activities are performed on a springy floor-exercise style mat, the gymnastic tricks included in the choreographed routines are bigger, higher and more complex than those performed on the sideline of a football or basketball game. Routines are performed to custom-mixed music medleys with a driving techno beat. Competition cheerleading continues to carry the tradition of leading the crowd in school spirit with interstitial cheers bridging the first half of the routine with the second half. Teams
as standalone athletic activity which is often eligible for athletic scholarship. Perhaps this is because colleges know that in addition to providing spirited students with an athletic outlet, competitive cheerleading represents a unique opportunity for young people to hone their leadership and team building skills. Additionally, the American Medical Association now recognizes cheerleading as a sport, directing resources and research into sports physiology and medicine studies to the specialized movements of cheerleading and tumbling. “Our team has come a long way since August, not only in our skill level, but also with trust. The girls have so much talent and there is no better feeling than seeing them perform at 110% out on the competition floor. I cannot wait to see where this season takes the squad after
all of their hard work they put into perfecting the routine!” effused Coach Ali Tantillo. One would be hard pressed to find someone as organized and on the ball as a competitive cheerleader. Competing in a sport that combines the fearless flexibility and agility of a gymnast with the endurance of a track and field star and the strength of a weightlifter would be impressive enough. But, take all of those physical characteristics and package them into a personality that is positive, communicative and dependable, and you have yourself a winner. Of the leadership skills being developed among the Fauquier High School Roster, Coach Ashlynn Foster praised the team, “..for the youth of this team, they have really come together. We work really hard on our communication and teamwork,
are judged on their precision and presentation of this feature, as well. While the NCAA has yet to officially endorse the activity as an official sport governed by NCAA rules, many colleges now support either competition cheerleading or “stunting”

which is essential when you’ve got four girls tossing a flyer fifteen feet in the air… and then catching them in time.” Organization and dependability is central to the team effort. Squad members are expected to come to practice wearing their “workout” uniform of black shorts and red Fauquier tank top or gray Fauquier t-shirt. This helps the coaching staff troubleshoot flaws in choreography easily without much visual distraction from a varied wardrobe. Every movement of the team performance is scrutinized by judges. Therefore, the Falcon cheerleaders focus heavily on
hitting each and every kick, jump and flip to an eight count cadence during practice. Of the team’s first competition of the season on October 11th, coach Ashlynn Foster offered these praises: “ We opened up at our first competition and delivered an amazing performance. It was great to finally see the girls compete together as a team and see how all of their hard work has really paid off. As coaches, we couldn’t have been any more proud at seeing how they have grown together as teammates supporting one another. In the end, the trust between teammates
is really what makes a great team and we’ve finally found that.” These sentiments are echoed by Falcons Cheer Coach Brandy Schaeffer, “Our FHS Competition Cheer Squad is a “young” group of very talented girls who are capable of being the best amongst the best. I am so excited to see how high these Falcons can soar! They are coming together at just the right time and I have every confidence in them and their ability to do great things. “We Believe” in our Falcon Cheer Squad!

Happy Paw-lidays Keeping Your Furry Friend Healthy and Happy During the Busy Season
by Charlotte Wagner
he end of the year can be an overwhelming time for many households; with work commitments, school events, T and family festivities commandeering our schedules. Among all the hustle and bustle it is easy to overlook the potential impact seasonal stress can also have on our four legged friends. Luckily with a few simple preventative measures and management strategies even our furry family members can successfully participate in the holidays. Holiday Hazards
Seasonal decorations can cause a variety of hazards including electrocution, fire threat, obstruction, and toxicity. Ensure to keep electronics, small objects, candles, and chemicals away from pets, especially around curious puppies, oblivious adolescent dogs, and recent rescues who may be unfamiliar with household boundaries. For our feline friends ensure to keep tinsel and other 46
playful decorations out of reach as they could potentially be ingested and be at risk of getting tangled. Cats that climb furniture and cabinetry should be supervised to avoid knocking down candles, consuming drinks, or ingesting potentially toxic foodstuffs. Keep poisonous plants such as poinsettias, mistletoe, holly, lilies, amaryllis, and daffodils well out of reach to avoid accidental ingestion. Warrenton Lifestyle

Human Foods Are Not Your Friend
Many human delicacies, such as rich fatty foods, can cause severe stomach irritation and even pancreatitis in our pets. Similarly excess consumption of grapes, raisins, onions, and garlic can result in kidney dysfunction and anemia. Avoid giving your dog and cat scraps from the table, especially cooked bones and corn cobs as they may cause obstruction and GI tears. Make sure your trash cans are secured as some dogs will raid bins, whereas cats can climb and scavenge leftovers from open containers. Make sure the sweet stuff like chocolate, alcohol, and artificial sweeteners is only consumed by humans, as these too can be quite dangerous to pets.
Simple Solutions to Stress: Mental Stimulation-
In some instances you may want to consider confining your pet for safe and easy management. During this time the risk of animals escaping home is considerably higher, so ensure pets are regularly accounted for and do not have access to open doors or windows. The use of tethers, crates, and baby gates are an ideal way to control your pet, while still allowing them to observe holiday activities. For animals that are easily stressed, over-stimulated, or unappreciative of visitors, consider more secluded confinement to a laundry room, bedroom, or basement. Providing background noise with a radio or TV, dimming lights, and using calming products such as the DAP or Feliway can further help comfort pets.
Many destructive and nuisance behaviors are due to a lack of mental stimulation. Providing your dog or cat with food dispensing toys during regular meals is an easy and time-saving way to entertain your pet. There are a variety of products available on the market that will encourage your pet to problem solve in order to attain their food. Consider substituting walks with structured interactive play when the dark or weather prevents outdoor exercise. Dogs can be taught to fetch, tug, and find toys with their human companions, whereas cats can be enticed to chase with flirt poles and tether sticks.
Training for the Holidays
Lack of impulse control, basic manners, and general compliance becomes more apparent over the holidays when we are less able to commit to rules and training regimes. During this time pets are more likely to jump on strangers, surf and swipe food off of counters, and have difficulty settling down. Ensure to share household rules with visitors and train, proof, and rehearse good behaviors in a variety of environments prior to the season. Alternatively, you can also use rawhides, interactive toys, and chew bones to entertain your pet when visitors arrive. Top: Fuzz loves holidays, but rich holiday “people foods” don’t love him back. Here he is celebrating the special season with a Kong™ toy with a little dab of natural peanut butter to savor.

Café Torino - Mangiamo!
Italian Home Cooking That Is Far More Than You Imagine Dynamic couple Andrea and Amber Ferrero don’t want you to just come to their restaurant to eat their food, they want you to become part of the ‘family.’ While the meals at Café Torino takes center stage, they share the spotlight with the gregarious conversation that usually ensues across the tables and even into the kitchen. The fare is as good as any homemade Italian cooking this side of the Atlantic. And it should be. Born and raised in Torino, Italy, Andrea learned from his family and completed culinary school there. I have spent all of my life eating genuine Italian food and Café Torino’s meals are as good as any family dish (forgive me dear aunts, grandmas and mom). “We made a place that served food we would serve to our dear relatives,” says Andrea with Amber adding, “It’s the type of place that we love to have coffee, dine with friends or just hangout.” The restaurant exhibits a different feel depending upon the time of day you visit. In the morning’s relaxed atmosphere, the aroma of fresh Italian roasted coffee fills the air and plates of fluffy scrambled eggs and bacon are served to the morning business crowd, retirees and local officials. And a look in the display cases will give you a hint of the fresh desserts that will be offered up during the day while the menu board will tempt you to start making your lunch plans early. Lunch is a bustling crowd with delicious plates of pasta, chicken, seafood,
sandwiches and salads flowing through dining area to those anxiously awaiting. Regulars abound and greetings are exchanged throughout the restaurant. The specials are always recommended one today was a thick Tuna Steak cooked (perfectly, rare center) in a balsamic sauce with a side salad. Or, choose one of the local favorites like Penne with Prosciutto and Sage or Chicken Marsala. Dinner is white table cloths and candle light, comfortable for a casual meal or a dress-up date night. The menu is extensive and dinner should not be rushed - have room for appetizers and dessert. Starters vary and order at least one of the specials (like Avocado stuffed with Crab Meat - so perfectly cooked!) and something more familiar like the Insalata Caprese with the fresh Buffalo Mozzarella, Tomato Slices and Garden Pesto. Your server will be able to recommend a reasonably priced good wine to pair with your meal. Your entree could include well known Italian dishes such as Veal Piccata or Mahi-Mahi with Arugula and Crab Meat, one of last night’s specials (my son John’s favorite). Great Italian chefs know how to prepare fish and you can’t go wrong with any of the seafood specials. The Filet Mignon will be as good as any steak you’ll eat. It is tender, cooked pink in the center and will melt in your mouth. Torino prepares it a couple of ways. Decades ago, Andrea Ferrero started in Warrenton as a pastry chef and his
desserts became quite well known in the region. Recently, I mentioned to him that I was impressed that he had taken his sweets to another level. At first, he was animated and comically irritated. Then he confessed, “Amber has taken over making all the desserts.” “I lay awake at night thinking about new creations,” she said with a grin. Popular recent additions are the Pumpkin Cream Cheese Pecan and the Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel tarts (“It’s like heaven on earth”) and the Chocolate Flourless Tort/Cheesecake Swirl pie. Located at the prominent corner spot in the Waterloo Station shopping center (across from Carousel), Café Torino is open for breakfast and lunch Tuesday through Saturday and dinner Thursday through Saturday.

Reservations are accepted for dinner - 347-2713. The website is being redone locally by SiteWhirks and should be up soon www.Café-torino.com Tell them of special dietary needs.

Sprawled across the rolling hills of Opal lies Molon Lave, an elegant blend of the winemaking traditions of the old world and the new. The Papadopoulos family honors a long history of crafting wine in Greece. Louis Papadopoulos began cultivating a passion for winemaking in a suburb of Athens in 1961. Perfecting this craft, along with the family’s heritage of fine jewelry making, Louis built a bridge to an American vineyard dream, Mediterranean Cellars, which opened in 2003. Having lived in Northern Virginia since 1984, the influences of family tradition and life in the temperate climate of the Eastern Seaboard, his son, Louizsos Papadopoulos, finds inspiration in the blending of two cultures and traditions. In Louizsos’ newest interpretation of a family dream, Molon Lave represents a unique winemaking perspective in this part of the world. In its very name, Molon Lave shows the strong commitment to the family’s Greek history. The phrase has its origin in the Battle of Thermopylae. When the Persian commander demanded that the Spartans surrender their weapons, King Leonidas responded, “Molon Lave,” or, “Come and take them.” This phrase has traveled through history as a slogan of defiance against oppression. Louizos and his wife, Alexsandra, acquired the 50 acre winery and vineyard 60
site off of Lee’s Mill Road in 2003. They began planting that same year, and now 12 of those acres are producing grapeswith more on the way. The doors to the tasting room opened in 2009, making this November 1st their 5-year anniversary. While continuing many of the oldworld Greek traditions of winemaking, Louizos brings a few touches from the new world. Most of his wines are single varietals, for example, and he often ages his wines in stainless steel to let the flavor profiles of the grapes evolve unobstructed by oak tannins or pine resin. In the tasting room, the wines on offer differ from expectations of a Virginia winery. Attica, always the first to be presented, is named for the Hellenic home region of the Papadopoulos family, and the location of Greece’s capital, Athens. The wine is a blend of Chardonel, Riesling and Pinot Gris, fermented and aged in stainless steel, and it hits the palate with green apples and fades into a floral finish- the perfect outdoor wine. The Chardonnay, which is aged a year in oak, blends familiar apple with more buttery tones. Molon Lave’s Chardonnay is fully Kosher- the production is even overseen by a Rabbi of the Orthodox Union. Katie’s Charm, named after Louizos’s mother, is a rosé that is almost -but not quite- dry with aromatic cherries on the nose and a flavor profile that follows
through with raspberries and strawberries. This fall, the Kokineli is returninga rosé of the Retsina style. Ancient Greek sailors would transport wines in clay jars sealed with pine resin. To this day, the fresh resin-y flavor as found in the Kokineli, is instantly recognized as borne out of this ancient Peloponnesian tradition. At Molon Lave, the red wines are most often aged in oak. The 2010 Chambourcin is meant to be paired with grilled or smoked meats, and presents the full and bright flavor profile that Virginia is becoming known for. Molon Lave’s 2010 Merlot has been aged for 22 months in oak, and its full body is ripe with notes of cherry and blackberry. Silky and smooth, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is also full of rich, darker fruits, with a finish akin to a fine espresso. Like the Chardonnay, the Cabernet Sauvignon is also certified Kosher wine. A pair of sweeter wines finish the tasting. The Autumn Nectar is aged for a year in medium toast French oak barrels, and made with a late-harvest blend of Riesling, Pinot Gris, and Viognier. Lush fruit and honey come through the nose, and there is a gentle touch of acidity present at the finish; making it a great pairing for a cheese course, or even spicy Thai food for the adventurous foodie. The Ariadne is a true port-styled wine. This Warrenton Lifestyle

rich red is named after the princess of Crete who helped Theseus to slay the Minotaur. Primarily Chambourcin, this fortified red is full velvety fruit, toasted nuts and smooth vanilla. The overall effect is thoroughly romantic. A visit to this winery will grant you a different perspective on what it means to make Virginia wine. The serene atmosphere of the grounds and the interior appointments of the tasting room which includes a grand table made 130 years ago in a Greek monastery and imported Greek olive oil and traditional Greek products, delivers visitors to a higher perspective of wine’s cultural context. The winery’s technique transcends terroir and culture, telling an epic tale of the nomadic history of wine. Molon Lave is undoubtedly a one of a kind experience.
