From The Publisher

The Scoop on Warrenton’s Celebrities Throughout its history and during the 27 years I have called it home, Warrenton has hosted many celebrities in the area. We are fascinated with celebrities as is evident by the preponderance of television, magazines and websites devoted to these people. The issue of how many ‘famous’ people we see here came up after a recent return from Los Angeles where I grew up. Folks tend to ask if we saw anyone famous while we were in the City of Angels. Sometimes I get to give them a tasty tidbit like when Steve Carell (The Office) and his wife sat next to us at a deli in Studio City and John played a little peek-a-boo with him. Or, the time we saw Jamie Gertz (The Neighbors) near Malibu or Mary Lynn Rajskub (24) at another deli (yes, we like to eat when we are in California). My sisters still live there and have regular stories about actors, singers and the Kardashians. Celebrity sightings in Warrenton are different. Sure, we have the occasional actor that graces our town – Robert Duvall is a county resident and can travel serenely through the area. Clint Eastwood was here to film a movie and that caused quite a ruckus. Years ago I ran into Dan Akroyd smoking a cigar with a local friend. We have visiting, nationally famous celebrities, too. In Warrenton, I’ve met a newly elected President, First Lady and Vice President of the United States. I’ve had the opportunity to shake hands with at least two Senators, a Governor and a few Congressmen plus a few state senators and many delegates.

Warrenton has been graced with the presence of a variety of people, some notable, some notorious, from Shaquille O’Neal to Donald Rumsfeld. We have TV personalities, Olympic athletes, several New York Times bestselling writers, war heroes, Fortune 100 executives, world-renown chefs, professional football players, world champion martial artists, top college athletes, Stanford and Harvard professors, and one of the co-founders of the Jamaican bobsled team. Let’s not forget that we were once the playground of the infamous White House Gate-Crashers; one is running for Governor while the other is on her new journey. Fortunately, our resident ‘celebrities’ usually aren’t involved in something as sensational. They are remembered or recognized for their kind personalities, their willingness to help others, or a great local achievement. Some are recognized for their great wealth or maybe for an elected position they once held. Others for serving the public for more years than many of us have been alive. Sit on Main Street or in a café one day in town and just watch how people greet others they haven’t seen. Watch what happens when a local ‘celebrity’ enters an area establishment and people stand or turn to acknowledge them or how staff at a store comes around the counter to hug a customer. It could be you, the kitchen person at a school cafeteria or a schoolteacher working on his/her fourth decade of teaching. Most people that live here long enough and participate in area events eventually become a ‘celebrity’ to a certain segment of the community. If you are one of them, enjoy it. At least you get hugs instead of requests for autographs.

birthdays & celebrations

One Hundred Welcomes Washington A Warrenton Resident turns 100 in October

The centenarian club will welcome a new member this month; Reverend Alphonso Washington of Warrenton will celebrate his one-hundredth birthday on October 18, 2013. Born in 1913 to parents Kate Washington Burrell and Deacon French Poles SR of Hume, Washington spent a significant portion of his childhood playing, growing, learning and working in Fauquier County. His experiences here allowed him to develop into a dynamic man who has lead a life of leadership and activism across the country. He

wrote and released a book of memoirs at the age of 95, recalling some of his life’s fondest and hardest memories. He is ready to embrace his latest accomplishment and looks forward to 100 more years. With the support and supervision of his maternal grandparents, Washington was raised in Hume as a toddler into his teens. He was greatly influenced early on by his Grandfather who was a firm, but kind and fair man. Washington gained two valuable attributes while in

the small farming village: responsibility and a sense of community. He learned responsibility by completing household chores. “Everybody in the house had a chore to perform after breakfast. My job was to take out the chamber pots every morning. You could forget to do your chore if you wanted to, but you wouldn’t forget it again! Grandfather would see to that.” Washington wrote in his book, All In God’s Time, Memoirs From My Life’s Journey. A sense of community was born by helping with the church garden his Grandfather built in addition to participating in the annual harvest where he and his Grandfather would help neighbors cut crops for the upcoming colder seasons. The relationship he had with this Grandfather was significant and that connection would help guide his decisions later in life. He recalls in his book, “When we needed flour my Grandfather would take a load of wheat to the mill in Delaplane where he would exchange it for a big barrel of flour. I went with my Grandfather once, and it was an all day trip. From before day till after dark, we made this trip and I really felt like a man, like I was really doing something when I was with him.”

His Grandfather, Elder Phillip Washington, was the third pastor at Mount Morris Baptist Church - the first being his Great-Grandfather, Elder Cornelius Gaddis, who was the very first pastor at MMBC and a former slave. Being raised in the church made a lasting impact on Washington especially with a long lineage of spiritual leaders. “I believe all Preachers are called, not by I want to do it, but by a higher power,” Reverend Washington said. Washington’s Grandfather passed away early in Washington’s life leaving him with an intuition and desire to lead. Washington got his call and delivered his first sermon in Orlean in 1935. “Now I’m telling you, in that part of the country beginning preachers had a terrible time. The congregation did everything they could to try to make you prove that you had been called,”

he mentions in his memoirs. “In the first six months or a year, the young preacher would experience situations in which he would have to overcome great difficulties.” Moving from Hume, he started his life preaching and working in Loudoun County until he was requested to go to Texas by the United States Air Force. His time in the south was filled with leadership, service and family. In San Marcos, Texas he met and married his first wife the late Rosa Mae Johns and had three children, a daughter Mabeleen, and two sons Sam and Willie. Upon returning from World War II as a veteran and an Air Force Assistant Chaplain he joined the American Legion and served at the same post for over fifty years. He would travel with Legion officers to attend several hundred military funerals. As the Chaplain, he would bring a sense of hope and peace to families of lost loved ones.

He actively served on the School Board and the City Planning and Zoning Commission for twelve years as well as the Community Action of Hayes, Caldwell and Blanco Counties for twenty-five years. Continuing to pastor he was a leader of three churches for a total of thirty-five years. Working to make a more equal country and provide necessary rights for African Americans he was the President of the NAACP for ten years. He also owned and operated Washington Plumbing for over thirty-four years. The Community Action Board recognized him in 1992; they named their new head start school the “A. Washington Child Development Center.” His service work continued to be noticed because ten years later the State of Texas and the City of San Marcos issued a declaration stating that June 13th would be named Rev. Alphonso Washington Day. washington continued on page 12

They connected over God’s word and through many surprising and delightful family relations. Washington returned to Texas with Whitmore on his mind and began writing her through email and reaching out to through the phone. “I knew that I would have to move quickly because at my age life comes at you fast and you don’t waste time,” Washington references in his book. Whitmore accepted his courtship and through emails, phone calls and packages they build a solid foundation on trust, support and God. In July of 2002 at the age of eighty-nine Reverend Washington married his third wife, Carol Whitmore. Rev. Washington has returned to Fauquier and made it his home once again; this time with a loving wife, a large family, supportive church and the energy to be involved locally. He incorporated his leadership and service abilities by joining the MMBC, the Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship International and the Second National Ketoctan Baptist Association. He provided counseling services to WorkPlace in Warrenton and obtained his Virginia Clergy License in 2005. Along with the help of his wife Carol, Rev. Washington, approaching the age of ninety-five, released a book noting his memoirs many of which have stories and chapters based in Fauquier County. While the end of his book stops shortly after his nuptials to Carol, the two are currently creating memories for his next chapter.

Rev. & Mrs. Washington at church.

In 2002 Washington was called back to Virginia due a death in the family and reconnected with the current pastor of Mount Morris Baptist Church, Rev. Lindsay O. Green. Rev. Green extended an invitation to Washington requesting that he preach their revival in September. Washington accepted and anxiously awaited his trip in September to lead MMBC, the same way his Grandfather and Great Grandfather did. 12

The preparation of the revival put Washington in contact with Carol Whitmore, who at the time was the secretary at the church. “I was attracted to Carol after the first moment I heard her voice.” He said in his book. “She was completely unaware, and I was going to keep it that way.” Whitmore welcomed Washington to the church and welcomed him into her home for the duration of the revival.

When asked what his plans are for his birthday, “All of this planning they have done, I didn’t start it but I’m going along with it…I don’t know what I’m suppose to do or how I’m suppose to act, I’m just going.” Washington laughed about his birthday plans. Friends and family will celebrate Washington’s one-hundredth at the Family Life Center next to the First Baptist Church on Alexandria Pike later this month.

WINCHESTER, WINCHESTER, VA ENROLLMENT Research today for a cancer-free tomorrow


NOVEBMER 14, 14, 2013

What if you could prevent even one family from hearing the words, words, “You “You have cancer? cancer?” This year, you can fight back against cancer by enrolling in the American Cancer Society’s new research study called the Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3). By joining CPS-3, you can help researchers better understand the genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that cause or prevent cancer, which will ultimately save lives.

Who can join the study?

We’re all in this together and every one of us has a chance to get cancer at some point in our lifetime…so if we can all contribute something and be part of the search for a cure, all the better.”

-Study participant

The study is open to anyone who: • Is willing to make a long-term commitment to the study, which involves completing periodic follow-up surveys at home for the next 20-30 years • Is between 30 and 65 years old • Has never been diagnosed with cancer (not including basal or squamous cell skin cancer)

How can you participate?

Participation is easy. Your initial enrollment requires two steps and will involve the following: •

After scheduling your enrollment appointment, you will receive a confirmation e-mail with instructions to go online and complete your first, most comprehensive survey. This survey will ask you questions regarding medications you are taking, family history of cancer, lifestyle and other behaviors and will take approximately 45 - 60 minutes to complete.

At your appointment, you will be asked to sign an informed consent form, complete a brief survey, and provide a waist circumference measurement and a small blood sample (similar to a doctor’s visit). The blood sample will be taken by a certified, trained phlebotomist. Your appointment should last approximately 20 - 30 minutes. To see more detail on dates/times/location, please visit:


For more information, visit cancer.org/cps3 or call toll free at 1-888-604-5888


What else can you do?

If you are not eligible to enroll, be an advocate for Cancer Prevention Study-3. Encourage those close to you to take part in this potentially life-saving study in your honor. Spread the word to everyone you know.

THE HEALING POWER OF AROMATHERAPY Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils from plants for healing. Whether inhaled or applied on the skin, plant oils have long been a recognized source of treatment in the area of physical and emotional healing for nearly 6,000 years. Essential oils are concentrated extracts with active ingredients taken from the roots, leaves, seeds or blossoms of plants using a specific distillation process that requires a copious amount of plant material, rendering the resulting oil a very precious commodity.

The ancient Chinese, Indians, Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans used them in cosmetics, perfumes and drugs. Essential oils were also commonly used for spiritual, therapeutic and hygienic purposes. More recently a French chemist, Gattefosse, discovered the healing properties of lavender oil when he successfully applied it to a burn on his hand. That event prompted an in depth analysis of the chemical properties of essential oils for treatment of burns, skin infections, gangrene and wounds in soldiers during WWI. In 1928 this chemist founded the science of Aromatherapy. By the 1950’s massage therapists, beauticians, nurses, physiotherapists, doctors and other healthcare providers began using Aromatherapy. Today, in the United States, many lotions, candles and beauty products are sold as “aromatherapy.” However, most of these products contain synthetic fragrances that do not have the same properties as essential oils. The oils with the efficacious properties need to be purchased in natural food stores, where you can more likely find oils, candles and bodycare products that are the real thing. Even in these stores, you must do your homework and make sure the oils are from a quality manufacturer, as some are better than others. Let’s begin our understanding of the power of Aromatherapy by recognizing the scientific fact that everything, including our bodies, is pure energy and vibration. Physical manifestations of that energy and vibration such as our bodies, our thoughts, our emotions, food, disease states, health states, and so on, vibrate at different levels… from higher to lower. Plant oils have the highest

vibration of any substance on earth rendering them a powerful ally in our application of natural healing modalities. That is some good information! Essential oils work through the limbic system. The smell receptors in your nose communicate with parts of your brain that serve as storehouses for emotions and memories. When you breathe in essential oil molecules, it stimulates the amygdala and hippocampus to influence physical, emotional and mental health. Molecules from essential oils may also interact in the blood with hormones or enzymes.

Aromatherapy is used in a wide range of settings, from health spas to hospitals to treat a variety of conditions….to relieve pain, anxiety, stress, fear and depression. The list of conditions that can be addressed with oils is endless...for example….a depressed immune system, pms, menopause, constipation, insomnia, skin conditions, headaches, memory, appetite, hayfever, nausea, herpes, colds, bruises and blood pressure, just to name a very few. Some of the major properties of essential oils are analgesic, antibiotic, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antiviral, aphrodisiac, detoxifying, fungicidal, nervine, sedative, stimulant and tonic among others. Many quality natural food stores have essential oil combinations you can wear as a “perfume” scent all day, whether it be soothing or sexy! Essential oils must be used with caution and care. Educate yourself with good book or use an aromatherapist for guidance. A smart health food store will have an educated staff and information to guide you. A wonderful book is “Aromatherapy, an A-Z” by Patricia Davis. This book contains information on every oil, every condition and important charts listing hazardous oils, who should not use oils, how to use and not use oils, recipes, formulas and more. One caveat I shall mention here, is to never ingest the oils….use them carefully and sparingly on the skin, as massage oil, in an oil burner, in the bath, or just under the nose.

SPIRITS & ghosts


hiver & Shadows by: Frances Allhouse

We have an innate fascination with the unknown and the more something frightens us, the more intrigued we seem to be. No time of year better exemplifies this than autumn when our thoughts turn toward the mysterious, shadowy corners of our world. Those places we pass by every day whose depths we usually choose to ignore suddenly occupy our questioning minds. Is something really lurking in the darkness? Do we dare take a closer look? Since 2008, the Old Jail Museum has been encouraging people to step into the shadows and recognize the darker history and ghostly places in our community through our annual ‘Warrenton Ghost Tour: Tales of the Odd, Macabre and Supernatural.’ So, what can you expect when you take the tour? The Warrenton ghost tour is an hour-long, lantern-lit, evening walking tour of Old Town Warrenton’s haunted history. Our stories are intended to be eerie retellings of local legends and as such the event is appropriate for children and adults of all ages.


Beginning and ending at the Old Jail Museum, the tour includes about a dozen stops and incorporates some of Warrenton’s best loved ghost stories alongside tales of the macabre history of the area. As you follow our costumed guides, you’ll hear stories of murders, mob violence and the seedier side of our quaint little town’s past in addition to tales of haunted homes and poltergeist activity. Those who love a good ghost story will enjoy hearing tales such as the following, an excerpt from last year’s tour.

Post Office Apparition A few years ago now there was a young man who worked in a shop across from the post office. He was about 18 at the time, just finishing high school, and on this particular occasion he had been asked to work late. It was slow that night but he was getting paid, so he started to watch the world go by outside the shop’s windows. As his eyes scanned the

streetscape, he saw a figure seated on the post office steps. He studied the man on the steps idly for a moment or two, noting that he wore a green wool jacket. It was not at all fashionable, but the man had obviously taken great care to keep his jacket clean and pressed. He noticed that the gentleman’s pants where of the same color and pressed just as carefully. He looked plainly anxious as he sat there on the stairs seemingly waiting on someone or for something. The young man could not shake the idea that this person just looked somehow out of place. Confused, but hoping to be helpful, or at least get a better look, he left the store to talk to the man on the steps.

what had just happened. He was sure they would think he was crazy . . . sure they would make fun of him. But as he related his encounter to his coworkers, they simply smiled and nodded. They had all seen the soldier too. Not tonight, but on different days . . . different years. All described the same scene. Some seventy years out of place, the serviceman, it seems, is trapped in an endless, anxiety-riddled wait though for what it is impossible to say.

Outside the shop, he got a clearer view. There was definitely something very peculiar about the way the man was dressed but oddly it seemed familiar, too, like something he’d seen in a book long ago. Then all at once he recognized the outfit. It was a uniform. But not just any uniform . . . it was a WWII army uniform . . . just as crisp and clean as any good military man would keep it. Before he could reach the other side of the street, the gentleman in the uniform leapt up and dashed into the Post Office. Perplexed, the young man sprinted up the steps and threw open the doors, but no one was in sight. The soldier was gone.

Making an Example

Returning to his station in a state of disbelief, the young man couldn’t get the image of the WWII soldier out of his mind. He had to tell someone

Don’t believe in ghosts? No problem, there’s plenty of macabre history included in the tour for you to enjoy. During the Civil War, countless scenes of horror played out in the streets of Warrenton, but none were more chilling than the tale of Thomas Jewitt. Jewitt was a young captain connected with a Maine regiment. In the summer of 1862, he was accused of desertion to the enemy and was remanded to the Warrenton jail. Tried and found guilty, he was sentenced to be executed. But the sentence went beyond just Jewitt’s fate. His death was to be a spectacle that his entire division would be forced to witness. At half past eleven on the morning of August 14, Jewitt was taken from the jail. He was loaded into a four-horse wagon and was ordered to be seated. His seat was his own coffin and his

only companion was his regimental chaplain. Driven a short distance from the Jail, Jewitt was met with the sight of the three brigades of his regiment forming three sides of a square. They were on an elevated piece of ground from which the execution could be seen from every direction. The wagon entered the hollow square and drove all around the periphery so that each man could clearly see the condemned. The wagon came to a stop and Jewitt was led out, the coffin unloaded onto the ground and Jewitt ordered once again to be seated atop it. The chaplain spoke a few quiet words, offered a prayer, shook Jewitt’s hand and walked away. A few feet away, ten muskets lay stacked on the ground. Eight were loaded with powder and shot, two had only blanks. Ten men from his regiment were called forward and ordered to pick up a musket, none knowing if the weapon he held would be deadly or not. “Ready, Aim, Fire!” came the order and the report of ten muskets rent the air. Across the hollow square, the force of the shots lifted Jewitt from his seat on the coffin and threw him to the ground. As the regiments filed past his body, the message was clear . . . this was the fate of all traitors. Yes, we have a fascination with the unknown that exists in the shadows. This October, why not indulge your dark side and find out more about Warrenton’s eerie history and haunted places with the Warrenton Ghost Tour.

The Warrenton Ghost Tour will be held October 18, 19, 25 and 26 with tours at 7, 8 and 9pm each evening. Tickets are available right now at the Old Jail Museum and are $10 per adult and $5 per child ages 7-12. Contact the Old Jail Museum at 540-347-5525 or theoldjailmuseum@yahoo.com for more information. Be sure to get your tickets in advance as tours often sell out early. The ghost tour is a fundraiser for the Old Jail Museum. Well over ninety percent of the cost of each ticket sold goes toward the continued operation of the historic site. 22

Fauquier Health Cancer Services at Fauquier Hospital In addition to meeting all of the traditional healthcare needs of the community, Fauquier Hospital also provides treatment for all types of cancer (except acute leukemia) and blood disorders. Syed Salman Ali, M.D., of Fauquier Health Hematology/ Oncology, says, “In our outpatient Infusion Center we have everything we need to treat almost every kind of cancer right here. We are fortunate to be able to offer this comprehensive care so close to home.” Dr. Ali explains the process: “Most patients who are referred to me already have a diagnosis, but some come with an unclear diagnosis and I take over the diagnostic workup.” He adds, “We offer the same services that most medical facilities offer. The difference is that we offer an intense level of nursing involvement. It’s the difference between good care and exceptional care. “Our Infusion Center nurses offer continuous care before, during and after treatments at the center. They follow up with patients to see how they are doing at home; they check to

see if they need fluids or antibiotics between chemotherapy treatments.” Typically, cancer patients are admitted frequently to the hospital, says Dr. Ali. “But very few of our patients wind up as inpatients because of the day-to-day care they receive as outpatients. Because my office is right next to the Infusion Center, I can easily consult with the Infusion Center nurses; we can address any concerns right away, as they come up.” Jennifer Scheulen of Chester Gap recently was a patient in Fauquier Hospital’s Infusion Center for a 12week period following surgery for breast cancer. With three small children at home, she was afraid of being overwhelmed. “The whole process was more tolerable than I feared. I expected the worst. But all of the nurses in the Infusion Center were great. It is a very upbeat atmosphere.” Her four infusion treatments were between seven and eight hours long. “All the nurses took turns checking on me. I had some reactions, so they had to watch me pretty closely. I really

appreciated the care I received at the Infusion Center. The nurses made a tough time a lot easier.” She added, “I guess I was lucky. I only felt bad for two or three days following each treatment. And now, I feel good!” Dr. Ali spends a great deal of time speaking with family members, answering questions and addressing concerns. “I have an open-door policy when it comes to patients and their families. Sometimes one member of a family lives in another part of the country – or the world – and that family member happens to be the one with some medical background. I spend the time with that long-distance family member so they can help to explain the diagnosis and treatment to the other family members. We spend a lot of time working with family members.”

Licensed to Drive By Hannah M. Borja

Tuesday, August 13, 2013 “The Night Before”

My Behind-the-Wheel sessions begin tomorrow. Normally, I am not nervous for traditionally big days: first day of school, SAT Test, AP Test, etc. I do not let myself think about them too much, mostly because I see no true productivity in overthinking. Now, I wish the norm held true for tomorrow. I find myself anxious about my first day of driving with an instructor. What I am trying to figure out, besides what could possibly go wrong, is why? Perhaps I am nervous about ultimately failing the test. Or maybe I do not want to make a bad impression on the instructor (who is my best friend’s mother). But I think my subtle fears go a lot deeper than that. Obtaining one’s license and driving independently is a huge step for any teenager. A lot of us share how excited we are or how easy we find driving to actually be. It really is not that hard. But what I find to be my biggest roadblock (no pun intended) is the massive responsibility it carries. Not only am I responsible for a very expensive vehicle, but I hold responsibility for the lives of all those in the car as well as those on the road. I am afraid that, amongst all the decisions I will be making, I will make one that ruins the life of someone, somewhere in unspeakable ways. Maybe I am not scared for tomorrow, but for what tomorrow means for the rest of my life. This fear is probably healthy and sensible. What I pray is that it does not grow. Rather, I want it to remain a useful and ever-present reminder that keeps me safe, responsible, and happy as I develop my confidence in driving. The rest of my life officially begins. Wish me luck, dear reader.

August 14, 2013 “The First Day”

Today went pretty well in the grand spectrum of first days. My instructor was wonderful and one of my friends my partner. The nerves died soon after we began. Among the constant laughter and conversation in the car, my partner and I both drove pretty well. However, I messed up significantly only once. I was trying to cross a divided highway on 17 and turn left. My instructor thought I was going to stay in the middle and wait for a large group of cars to pass. However, I thought the group of cars was far away enough that I could turn left quickly and without trouble. I also thought I heard my instructor say “straight ahead” when she actually said “straight [in the middle]”. I quickly did the turn and nearly gave her and my friend a heart attack. I had forgotten that our student-driving car has absolutely no pick-up. I immediately apologized to no end. My instructor laughed very cheerfully and loudly, explaining why what I did was not safe (I cut everybody off at 55 mph) and told me to not do it again. Her smiley demeanor calmed my flaring worry. She also said we will do that divide highway again as well as on test day. I have time to redeem myself, and I will. I just hope I did not leave a bad impression on her. From now on, whenever I cross a divided highway, I will remember how cautious my instructor wanted me to be on my first day of behind the wheel.

a red light. When I drove it, the only part I struggled on was the accursed intersection (again!), but this time I was almost too cautious. I made the necessary turn after a few minutes of waiting for the highway to clear. My instructor explained that I could have gone almost immediately, but I doubted myself, which is still negative. The part we found most funny was that my friend and I had the same speeding mistake in the same spot. We then established that, on test day, we would constantly remind each other of the important things to remember (speed limit, no turn on red, etc.). I love my driving partner!

licensed continued from page 26

August 15, 2013 “The Second Day”

Today we drove on all back roads. I did not give my instructor a heart attack today! I consider that a small victory in itself. On these particular back roads, there were several intersections that consisted of a hidden stop sign and speeding drivers. I was sure to point out I would not pull what I did yesterday. I did have the instructor warn me of an incoming car to my left, but it was casual and without panic. At the end, we pulled into one of the Liberty parking lots and I parked perfectly. If I do nothing else in my lifetime worth mentioning, I will die happy because I parked that well. The instructor said that everything was great and she wants me to practice making sure that I double check to the left at every intersection. I sheepishly obliged. Yes, today, dear reader was a good day.

August 16, 2013 “The Third Day”

Today we drove the route that, as our instructor informed us, makes her the most nervous. This route goes through most of our town of Warrenton. She was very concerned for the pedestrians and children who tend to run out in front of vehicles. Remember my huge mistake on day one? Well, my partner had an error of similar proportions. There is a horrible three-way stop with a hidden stop sign on the outskirts of Old Town Warrenton. My partner, having only driven in Warrenton once, did not see this hidden secret. He accidentally ran right through the stop sign. No cars were coming, thankfully, 28

but he still beat himself up over it. That is what sticks out at me most about today: that nearly everyone who has a license has a story in which they messed up driving: cutting people off, denting someone’s car, running a stop sign or a red light. That might seem like an alarming fact, but I think what differentiates good drivers from bad is that good drivers only mess up with small things. I never gave that much thought before today.

August 19, 2013 “The Fourth Day”

Today we went to Vint Hill. It was quite similar to yesterday, without errors on me or my partner’s behalf.

August 21, 2013 “The Fifth Day”

Today I drove the fastest I have ever driven in my life. The new elements my instructor incorporated today were acceleration and deceleration lanes. The highway in which these lanes were found had a speed limit of 70 mph. That type of speed was new to me, but that did not stop me from actually enjoying it!

August 22, 2013

“The Sixth Day” Today was practice test day. We each drove the test route twice. This consisted of driving down 17, the Cedar Lee neighborhood, four lights, a U-turn, a good selection of back roads, parking, and yes, the divided highway intersection. My partner did quite well, even despite a situation in which he was trying to merge to the right and was forced to break hard on

August 23, 2013

“The Seventh (Test!) Day” I kept thinking about the test all day. Finally, after a fourth block that seemed to stretch for an eternity, school ended and our final Behind-the-Wheel session began. My partner drove first, as he always does. During his turn, a surprise ambulance appeared, to which he dutifully yielded to. This kid is just great in unexpected situations. He did not commit any of the mistakes he did yesterday. Needless to say, he passed with only one error. The wave of relief that visibly came over his entire being was priceless. Then, it was my turn. I remember how quickly my heart was beating in my chest as I positioned myself behind the wheel. Seconds into driving, however, a new feeling of naturalness came over me and I felt confident. No ambulances appeared during my turn, sadly, but there was a quick red light and a sudden stop I had to do to yield to incoming cars. My instructor said I handled that very well, for if I had continued, it would have been an automatic fail. I decided to reflect upon that in the most positive way possible. As we came to the last portion of the test, I was faced with my paved nemesis: the divided highway. I utilized my newfound confidence as much as possible. I actually talked myself through it out loud, telling myself and my passengers what I was doing. As soon as I made the turn safely, a huge smile broke out on my face, and I just knew. Four minutes and one great parking later, my instructor uttered the fateful, lifechanging words… Hannah Borja is a current junior at Liberty High School. Warrenton Lifestyle

Fauquier Habitat for Humanity formed a Steering Committee a few years ago, the purpose being, to open a ReStore in Warrenton. The mission of the organization is to provide safe and affordable housing as well as provide a family with a better future. With the opening of the Warrenton’s Habitat Restore more families in our area are benefitting from their hardwork. Their first project was to locate a suitable location. After considerable research, they proudly took the Frost Avenue site because of the good frontage, traffic flow and parking. They had much to learn before opening day. They visited other Restores in the area, spoke with their people, attended a seminar in Charlottesville and visited their store. Websites were also a source for knowledge and ideas. They went on to identify which permits were needed as well as the work that was necessary on site before opening. Soon after accomplishing all of these tasks they were able to accept donations of lightly used/new building supplies, household appliance, bathroom and kitchen hardware, lighting fixtures, plumbing necessities, furniture, etc. The donations were held in thirteen storage units for a while until we were able to create a website and sell items prior to the official opening. On September 29, 2012 with the help of the Board of Directors, volunteers and the Executive Director, Brenda Drerenberger, the Habitat Restore in Warrenton was open. The “Retiree Group,” who would normally be on a build, got together to transfer the contents of the storage units to the store. While at the ReStore, another group of active volunteers erected numerous shelving units to help organize and display for-sale items. In the back handy volunteers were ready with cleaning supplies and tools to help sort, clean and mend items to be placed on the floor. The official grand opening took place in October, with the help of many volunteers and generous donations the Restore opening was a success. Since then the Habitat ReStore’s Warrenton location has received a wonderful Working together, ReStore volunteers Margaret Clarke and Sam Mitchell help ring up a local shopper.response and many compliments - even by The ReStore carries home furnishings like sinks, tile, cabinets, light fixtures and much more! local dignitaries! Spending time at the ReStore isn’t really “work;” they offer a fun and light environment with people of all ages, a variety of backgrounds and the opportunity to meet new people every day. They currently have a prospective homeowners working as well to earn required hours, but have been putting in extra time because they enjoy being there. Volunteers are always needed and welcome, if interested please give the ReStore a call or swing by for more information. The ReStore is always looking for donations and offer pick-up services with their own truck by appointment. All of their items are sold at reasonable prices and the profits from the sales transfers directly to their Building Fund for future homes. They currently plan to start building a new duplex in October for two excited families. The Habitat Restore wishes to thank the community for all of their donations that have helped make this venture possible. And to all of the wonderful volunteers who have given their time freely that has amounted to thousands of hours this year.

Warrenton history

Earth Design Associates: true to their name

Local landscape architecture firm has earned national recognition By John T. Toler For nearly four decades, the landscape architects at Earth Design Associates (EDA) at Auburn have been creating nature-focused landscapes, winning national acclaim and international recognition for a wide range of projects. Locally, EDA has been involved with numerous and varied projects, including the Northern Fauquier Community Park near Marshall, Monroe Park and the John Marshall Birthplace Park near Midland, and the Hill School and National Sporting Library in Middleburg. The founder and president of Earth Design Associates is Barry W. Starke, 69, who grew up near Short Pump, outside of Richmond. From an early age, he felt the calling to become a landscape architect, but it wasn’t until he got into his formal training that he realized that true landscape architecture was more than planning gardens or streetscapes. In high school, Starke was exposed to the works of Richmond landscape architect Charles Gillette, which strengthened his desire to enter that field. In those days, only a few universities offered landscape architecture programs. In the fall of 1962, he enrolled in the program offered at the University of California at Berkeley. He completed the requirements for his Bachelor of Landscape Architecture degree in 1967. While studying at Berkeley, the most important textbook used in his coursework was Landscape Architecture, A Manual of Environmental Planning and Design, by John O. Simonds (1913-2005) which had just come out in 1961. After graduation, Starke enlisted in the U.S. Navy. Returning to civilian 32

life in 1969, he worked for a year as a planning intern for the Richmond Regional Planning Commission, where he conducted environmental analysis in preparation for Richmond’s Open Space Resources Plan. In 1970, Starke joined the landscape architecture firm of Meade Palmer FASLA in Warrenton, where he was a landscape architect and project manager for numerous environmental studies and site development projects. Notable projects included work at Arlington National Cemetery and Historic Greensprings, America’s first rural historic district. Wishing to form their own design firm, Starke and co-worker Fred Kines left Mr. Palmer in 1974 to establish Earth Design Associates Inc. Their last project with Palmer’s firm was the design of the Lyndon B. Johnson Memorial Grove. The time they spent working with Palmer taught both men invaluable lessons, not the least of which

was to offer diversified services. “Meade did a lot of different things, and when we started Earth Design, so did we,” recalled Starke. The first office of EDA was in a spare room in Kines’ house on Lickin’ Run, near Germantown. The firm later moved to a rental house owned by Kines. Their first big job came in 1975, with an outdoor design project at Wexford, the country home of Bill Clements, Deputy Secretary of Defense under President Gerald Ford. The home near Middleburg was originally built in 1963 for Pres. and Mrs. John F. Kennedy, but the First Family spent only two weekends at Wexford before the President was assassinated in November 1963. Clements took Starke and Kines aside, and simply told them, “I want a earth designs continued on page 34

swimming pool, tennis court, and plenty of space for outdoor entertaining. So you guys have at it!” The new elements had to fit comfortably in the difficult, varied terrain surrounding the house. “What we came up with was an elaborate scheme of terraces going down the hillside, with simulated rock outcroppings,” recalled Starke. “It was really quite an opportunity for us.” The overriding challenge was to blend the new elements into the natural setting without overpowering or destroying it.

One of Earth Design Associates first big jobs was the outdoor entertainment area at Wexford near Middleburg, which included a swimming pool and tennis court. Wexford was originally built in 1963 for Pres. and Mrs. John F. Kennedy.

“Bruce Hanback was the general contractor, and he hired the best masons and other subcontractors,” said Starke. “It turned out very well, and Earth Design got a lot of publicity in articles published in national landscape architecture magazines.” Sadly, before the project was completed, Kines died of cancer. After the work was finished in 1978, Clements had a party at Wexford, and invited Starke and his wife Laurie, a California native, to join the festivities. Upon arrival, they were greeted by George H.W. Bush, then the head of the Central Intelligence Agency. “A lot of Washington dignitaries were there, and it was quite an experience,” recalled Starke. “We had just gotten married, and Laurie turned to me and said, ‘Is this what life is going to be like in Virginia?’” Soon after the firm was started, EDA began a long association with Maymont Park in Richmond, and over the next 25 years would be involved in over 30 projects in the park, beginning with the park Master Plan in 1976.

The arched bridge in the Japanese garden at Maymont Park is one of the striking elements designed by Earth Design Associates. Over the years, the firm has been involved in more than 30 design projects in the park.

One of the most significant projects was Maymont’s Japanese garden, which originated in a conceptual plan drawn up in 1977. Commissioned by the Maymont Foundation, design and construction drawings for the garden were completed in 1981. The first phase of construction followed in 1985-86, and other parts of the plan were implemented between 1987-95. The new Japanese garden was a challenge. The existing 6½-acre garden, dating back to the 1920s, was in poor condition, and with two lakes and concrete sidewalks, it was more like an English park. In preparation for the project, the Starkes went to Japan for their honeymoon, where they visited the native gardens. “The honeymoon turned out to be a trek through all those gardens,” he noted. “It was really a great experience.” Starke returned with a master plan that created a “strolling” garden that fit in nicely at Maymont. The design called for entry through a wooden archway, leading visitors to meandering walkways. They would then pass through carefully placed trees and shrubs, around green-planted hills, and over an arched Japanese-style moon bridge. Other remarkable features in the garden were the existing waterfall coming off a rock cliff, flowing into interlocking pools and a small stream. But there was something more that made the Japanese garden project special.

The Japanese garden won an award from the American Association of Nurserymen in 1982, which was presented to Barry Starke by thenFirst Lady Nancy Reagan. 34

Conservation Corps grant from the U.S. Department of Commerce, and along with some private funds, the money was used to hire dropouts and at-risk youngsters to work on the first phase of the project. While there was initial skepticism about how this would work, the youngsters performed their jobs well. Recently, the Maymont Japanese garden was recognized as one of the 25 most significant Japanese-style gardens North America in Quiet Beauty, The Japanese Gardens of North America (2013), by Kendell H. Brown, “the foremost scholar of Oriental art in the U.S.,” according to Starke. In addition, the Maymont garden earned an award from the American Association of Nurserymen for “nationally significant works in landscape design,” which was presented by thenFirst Lady Nancy Reagan at the White House. Starke earned the 1982 Tucker Award from the Building Stone Institute for his work on the garden. Another significant project involving EDA was the design and placement of the Arthur Ashe monument in Richmond, which started in 1994 and completed in 1996. Landscape planning included the selection of an appropriate site, and the design of a stone base for a statue of the famous African-American tennis star sculpted by Paul DiPasquale. In what the Richmond TimesDispatch called “the most controversial project of the 20th century,” the site selected for the Ashe monument was on the city’s Monument Avenue, a boulevard where heroes of the Confederacy were honored. “The project got into the political arena, and then went absolutely crazy,” said Starke. After much turmoil, the project was approved to be built on Monument Avenue, at the end of the historic district. At this location, it marks the starting point where new monuments honoring other Richmond heroes will be built. Closer to home, in 1994 EDA was selected by Fauquier County to lead a project to evaluate the county’s planning and land use controls, following the controversial Disney’s America Theme 36

Park project. Called the Rural Areas Land Use Plan, others working on the project were John Coughlin of Coughlin/ Keene and Associates, and Randall Arendt, of the Natural Lands Trust. Viewed as an opportunity to advance rural preservation, the results of the study, which included a sitespecific model, provided a range of recommendations. However, “Like any planning study, it didn’t get fully implemented,” said Starke.

Professional advances Starke’s participation in professional landscape architecture organizations goes back to 1972, when he became a member, and later a fellow, of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA). Over the years, he served on various committees and rose through the ranks. He was elected Vice President for Communications in 199596, and President of the ASLA for the organization’s Centennial Year in 1999. Regionally, he was a member of the Potomac Chapter of the ASLA, starting as an associate member in 1972 and becoming a regular member in 1974. When the Virginia Chapter was formed in 1978, he served as Charter Vice President in 1979, and President in 1980. Starke was also involved in the process of establishing landscape architecture as a recognized profession. For many years, landscape architecture as a profession had been “totally misunderstood, and almost suppressed,” he recalled.

Earth Design Associates was involved with the site selection, design of the base, and the landscaping surrounding the monument honoring tennis star Arthur Ashe in Richmond. Barry Starke (left) and sculptor Paul DiPasquale attended the unveiling in 1996.

When he came to Warrenton in 1970, Meade Palmer was already working on state legislation to establish landscape architecture certification. It was a long process, and by the time Starke was the President-Elect of the Virginia Chapter of the ASLA, he and others successfully pushed for state certification of landscape architects. Certification was important to the profession, authorizing landscape architects to sign off on site plans and other legal documents involving their work on projects. As president of the Virginia Chapter, in 1980 Starke was appointed to serve on the Virginia State Board of Architects, Professional earth designs continued on page 38

Engineers, Land Surveyors and Certified Landscape Architects. He served as chairman of the Landscape Architecture Section for several terms, and was the first landscape architect elected president of the board, serving two terms. The next step was full licensure of landscape architects in Virginia, which took much longer. “It was quite a battle,” Starke recalled. The process was completed in 2012, and Starke was designated “Commonwealth of Virginia Licensed Landscape Architect #1.” Over the years, Starke still found time to serve other committees and organizations, including the Town of Warrenton Architectural Review Board (2003-2005); the Fauquier County ARB (1989-2001); and the International Federation of Landscape Architects, which involved travel to Jesus College, Cambridge, in the U.K.

Moving into a new phase Recently, EDA has undergone a downsizing, moving from the historic Nevill’s Mill building in Auburn it has occupied since 1977 to smaller quarters in the building next door. While not retiring, Starke is selectively taking on new projects, and devoting more time to professional writing.

Remarkably, Starke has already significantly contributed to the body of knowledge of landscape architecture. This started when he was contacted by John Simonds in 2004, who asked him to revise and co-author the fourth edition of Landscape Architecture, A Manual of Environmental Planning and Design – a new version of the textbook Starke had used in college. They had worked together in 1999, when Starke was president of ASLA, and asked Simonds to write the prologue for the ASLA Centennial book. Due to his age and health problems, Simonds declined, but they had stayed in touch. Work on the fourth edition of Landscape Architecture began in 2004, and proved to be extremely demanding. In addition to the necessary revisions, new content was added, including current works of contemporary landscape architects, and the new technologies that had become available. “What John Simonds originally wrote was timeless, as applicable today as it was in the early 1960s,” noted Starke. “There have been many changes, but the underlying philosophy of the profession – living in concert with nature - hasn’t changed, and won’t change. The challenge for me was how to update the book, while preserving the integrity of what he wrote.”

Artwork selection included going through over 2,000 photographs; 400 color photos were used, including 80 taken by Starke. Once the manuscript was completed in 2006, it required only light editing, and the artwork supplied was easily embedded in the text. The fourth edition grew to 21 chapters, and was soon published and in the hands of landscape architecture students and professionals. His work on the fourth edition earned Starke an invitation to speak at the 10th anniversary of the founding of the Department of Landscape Architecture at Beijing University in 2007, where he also had a book signing. McGraw-Hill considered Landscape Architecture to be one of its best titles, and contacted Mr. Starke in 2011, requesting that he produce a fifth edition, which he agreed to do. This time, revisions were focused on current land use planning concepts, and such emerging topics as “greening and sustainability,” storm water management, urban forestry, and bringing people and nature into balance. The fifth edition has received 15 five-star reviews on Amazon.com, coming from all over the world. “That being said, I still haven’t made minimum wage on the project,” Starke added with a chuckle. earth designs continued on page 40

Simonds and Palmer By now accustomed to working with publishers and book designers, Starke is planning to write about the lives of John O. Simonds (1913-2005) and M. Meade Palmer (1916-2001).

M. Meade Palmer, FASLA, designed many projects in the region, including the Lyndon B. Johnson Memorial Grove, and Historic Greensprings, the first rural historic district established in the U.S.

A native of North Dakota, Simonds grew up in Michigan, where became interested in natural landscapes while staying at the family home on a lake. During his undergraduate studies at the University of Michigan, he was scheduled to spend a semester in Borneo working for a timber company. However, the company wanted him to sign a one-year contract, which he could not do. Instead, he was befriended by a native who spoke English, and lived with a family in Borneo for six months. It was there that he experienced a culture that was tied to the land. Also while an undergraduate, Simonds later studied a Japanese culture and philosophy that called for closeness to the Earth, and later pursued a career path focused on environmental preservation. “John Simonds was a towering figure in landscape architecture, a national icon,” said Mr. Starke. “The first edition of Landscape Architecture was a huge step forward, in that until that time, no one had written about landscape architecture in the context of the environment.” His contribution to landscape architecture earned Mr. Simonds the ASLA’s Centennial President’s Medal in 1999, a one-time award.

Cover of the 5th edition.

In contrast with John Simonds, Meade Palmer’s influence was much more regional, but no less important. After earning a degree in landscape architecture from Cornell University in 1939, he worked for the Arlington County Department of Planning for a year before serving an internship under Charles Gillette – the same landscape architect who inspired young Barry Starke years later. Palmer’s career was put on hold during World War II, during which he served as a naval officer in the South Pacific.

In 2007, Starke was a speaker at Beijing University, where he signed copies of the fifth edition of the book he co-authored with John Simonds. 40

After the war, he came to Warrenton and opened his landscape architecture firm on Culpeper Street. He was instrumental in the founding of the University of Virginia’s Department of Landscape Architecture in 1961, and taught planting design and plant identification at UVA for several years. Mr. Palmer was known for his relatively minimalist designs, which blended in with their natural surroundings, or maintained an historical context. Notable projects include Bull Run Regional Park, Mount Rogers State Park, and the Carter’s Grove Country Road. He received numerous awards and recognitions during his lifetime, and after his death, the Virginia Chapter of the ASLA created the M. Meade Palmer Medal in his honor, given to fellow colleagues for “outstanding achievements in landscape architecture.” Starke was the first recipient. While not planning a big step like full retirement, Starke is looking forward to a time when he won’t be “so hard at it.” But he notes that like Meade Palmer’s firm, “Your business is you,” adding that there is still a lot of local work out there, particularly at local parks and area horse farms, the specialty of Earth Design Architect Tommy Beach, AIA. While he may be thinking of slowing down, Mr. Starke still cannot resist the opportunity to get involved with issues that are important to him. Currently, as president-elect of Scenic Virginia Inc., where he and others are working on a project to identify the most significant scenic assets in the state, and is in the process of developing a Viewshed Registry. “It’s a daunting task, and we’re trying to get our arms around it,” he explained. “But it will be an exciting project.” In examining the careers of Simonds, Palmer and Starke, important characteristics become apparent: decide what you are passionate about, always give it your best – and you will get to do it for a long time.

Happy &


A Fall Souper Star! As temperatures outside begin to fall, cravings for hot soups and stews are on the rise! This Chicken and White Bean Stew provides a nutrient-dense meal that is satisfying and full of flavor. With less than 300 calories per serving, it is low in fat, and contains a whopping 40 grams of protein. Don’t be tempted to omit the bacon on this one – a little goes a long way for depth and flavor! This stew will freeze well, so I encourage you to make a big pot and package it into individual servings, then use it as a healthy and delicious packed-lunch option.

GOOD FOR YOU CHICKEN AND WHITE BEAN STEW I LOVE SOUPS and STEWS! This satisfying stew is easy to prepare, inexpensive per serving and full of flavor. You can’t go wrong with a tomato-based broth full of chicken, beans, veggies and a touch of bacon for added depth and flavor. Nutritional Data: Per Serving: Calories Protein Carbohydrates Fat

295 40 grams 18 grams 7 grams

Ratios per serving: 54% protein 25% carbohydrates 21% fat

You will need: 2 slices bacon cooked and chopped (reserve drippings) 5 chicken breasts (skinned and boned) (Rinse and dry on paper towels) ½ onion chopped 2 carrots diced in large chunks 3 garlic cloves minced 1-tablespoon olive oil 1 - 28 oz. can of diced tomatoes 2½ cups chicken broth (can be low sodium) 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce Several dashes of Tabasco sauce 1 -14 oz. can of washed and drained white beans (Cannellini or northern) ½ teaspoon sugar 1-tablespoon garlic pepper 1-teaspoon basil ½ teaspoon seasoning salt Pepper and salt to taste Optional: spinach or arugula

Cook bacon in large sauté pan – remove from pan and chop – set aside. Using a very small amount of bacon drippings (just enough for flavoring), sauté onion and carrot for about 3-4 minutes. Add minced garlic and sauté for another 30 seconds – remove from pan and set aside. Add the olive oil to your pan. Sprinkle a bit of salt and pepper on chicken breasts. Add chicken breasts to sauté pan– browning on each side for about 3 minutes. Add diced tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco, garlic pepper, basil, sugar and salt and pepper. Add chopped bacon and beans. Sauté until chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken from pan and cut into pieces – return to pan. Optional: Add arugula or spinach about 1 minute prior to serving. This recipe makes about 8 servings.

Final Thought Most of us think we do not have enough will power to eat healthfully on a consistent basis; however, developing consistent habits may negate the need for will power at all! Recent research suggests that when making changes, habits may be more important than will power. So, start by focusing on changes that are relatively easy to make and that can become part of your daily/weekly routine. For example, make a pot of soup every Sunday and use it throughout the week for lunches and quick evening meals. By making the soup every Sunday, you will create new and healthy habits throughout the entire week. You can do it!

Fauquier County needs volunteer Firefighters and EMTs. October 2013


Community support


Imagine a fun and safe place in Fauquier County where the young people in our community could go after school (instead of the alternative of staying at home alone until their parents get home from work) to start on their homework, have tutors available, play recreational sports, hang out with friends, join leadership clubs and more, all at an affordable price. Can you believe that this already exists in two locations in Fauquier County? With one location in the heart of Warrenton, and the other in the southern end of the county in Bealeton, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Fauquier offer all of those ideal things. As someone who grew up in Fauquier County her whole life, I was shocked to find out how little I actually knew about the Boys and Girls Club located right here in my hometown. I had the opportunity to visit the Club this month and was able to meet some very inspirational boys and girls who were incredibly eager to tell me about their favorite activities at the Club, and how much the Club means to them. It truly is a second home to many young people in our county. When I entered the lobby of the Club, I was greeted by a spirited volunteer working at the front desk. As I started walking down the hallway, approaching the indoor gymnasium, I could hear the echoes of bouncing basketballs and children’s laughter. I walked into the gym in the middle of a five-on-five basketball game. In the rooms off of the gymnasium other members were working


on their homework, playing foosball and having fun with their friends. Initially, I was approached by Program Director, Angel Washington, who has been working part-time at the Club for ten years this September. “It (the Boys and Girls Club) gives the kids a safe and fun place to go after school and keeps them off the streets or from being at home alone,” she said. When asked what one of her favorite aspects of working at the Club was, Angel told me, “I love when the kids arrive smiling after school and can’t wait to tell me about their day.” During my visit, I was also introduced to a Club alumna, Megan Wallace who earned her Bachelor’s degree from University of Virginia and just recently earned her Master’s degree from Virginia Commonwealth University. Wallace grew up coming to the Club and when she turned 18 she started volunteering to help out with the younger kids. She has returned to volunteer every summer while in college and is now working part-time at the Club as a Program Director. She told me that the most rewarding experience was when she was nominated for the “Youth of the Year” award through the Boys and Girls Club. “It was an intense process, I had to write seven essays (which was a struggle for me at the time), and attend a panel interview. In the end it prepared me for job interviews, college essays and laid the foundation for my professional outlook.” I also met 10-year-old Monique who is in the 5th grade at C.M. Bradley Elementary School this year and attends the Club every day after school along with her older brother, Anthony who is in the 8th grade at Warrenton Middle School.

extremely eager to tell me about how much she enjoys playing in the indoor gymnasium after she finishes doing her homework while at the Club. “I want to keep coming here through high school. It’s safe, there are fun things to do and the people are really nice,” said Anthony. Walking out of the Boys and Girls Club all I could think about was how devastating it would be to our community if it were no longer here. Currently, the Club is at risk of closing its doors forever, which will affect hundreds of young people in our community. Boys & Girls Clubs of America had its beginnings in 1860 with several women in Hartford, Connecticut who believed that boys who roamed the streets should have a positive alternative. They organized the first Club and a cause was born. In 1906, several Boys Clubs decided to affiliate. The Federated Boys Clubs in Boston were formed with 53 member organizations. In 1931, the Boys Club Federation of America became Boys Clubs of America. Then, in 1990, to recognize the fact that girls are a part of their cause, the national organization’s name was changed to Boys & Girls Clubs of America. In 1994, a number of prominent Fauquier citizens met to discuss potential programs that could be introduced to girls and boys in our community. Public sentiment led the group to believe that they were facing a major community challenge—there was nothing organized for young people in our community to do after school on a daily basis. After visiting and considering a number of programs, the group decided a Boys and Girls Club would be the right fit for Fauquier County. It took almost three years to get the project off the ground and, finally, in November of 1997 the Boys and Girls Clubs of Fauquier opened its doors at Taylor Middle School. From 1997 to 2004 the Club struggled—succeeding only because of a handful of dedicated people such as Buddy Curtis, Executive Director Jon Gregory, Jerry Wood, Robert Wiles, John Morgan, Sarah Rossi, and Jerry Medlock. Help was tough to find and money was even harder to come by. Then along came Stephen Athey, who donated his time, money and influence to the Club and suddenly the positive changes began. Rachel Samlall, a Fauquier native, is a 2013 graduate of Bethany College. She is currently working as a Digital Strategist at McKinsey Development. 46

The club soon outgrew its Taylor Middle School home and began turning away 200 to 300 young people each year. It was time to look for a new home. When the opportunity to purchase Old Town Athletic Club’s former 15,000 square foot home on Keith Street in Warrenton presented itself, the Boys & Girls Club was ecstatic. It was the perfect space at the perfect time. There were high hopes for the Club when it moved into its Keith Street location in December of 2009. A number of monetary gifts and enthusiastic pledges promised in the years leading up to the grand opening were understandably rescinded in light of the 2009 recession. While the Club’s leadership made a valiant effort to bridge the funding gap with a Capital Campaign initiative, the project fell dramatically short of its goals in the wake of the recession. The Club is now at a pivotal crossroad – raise $1.6 million by the end of this year – or close its doors. “It’s a big goal. It’s an ambitious goal. But, this campaign is our sole hope of keeping this program alive in our community for our children and our children’s children,” said Boys and Girls Club Board President Wayne Harne. Eighth grader and Club participant Anthony summed up the sense of urgency around this need simply: “If the Club closes, I will feel so sad for all the kids who haven’t gotten the chance to come here yet to do all of the things I’ve gotten to do and meet all of the nice people I’ve met here.” As a young Fauquier-born professional coming home to her first job in Warrenton out of college…I’d be sad if the club closes too. Because I’ve seen our community pull together to accomplish great things in the past, and I know that together, we can preserve the history of the Boys and Girls Club in our community, and keep the doors open for the next generation.

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

The Most Interesting People Living in the Moment By George Rowand One wrong turn, and his life was changed. One wrong turn, and other lives were changed. One wrong turn, and maybe your life will be changed. One. Wrong. Turn. “I took a wrong turn in Warrenton and ended up in front of the Hospice Support,” said Eric Lindner. “Knocked on the door. Walked inside. Started talking to the director. It was an accident.” Accident or not, Lindner liked what he heard from Joy LeBaron, the director, and volunteered on the spot. After training in Haymarket, Lindner was given his first patient. And then another. And another. And now he’s written a book called “Hospice Voices – Lessons for Living at the End of Life” that tells his experiences and their stories.

Listening In

“When I met my first patient the first day, I was hooked, I mean hooked,” Lindner said. “It was unbelievable. Like me, the guy was blinded in his left eye. He spoke six languages, a Fulbright Scholar, was a runner of marathons. He was fighting Alzheimer’s, fighting cancer. Upbeat, happy, wiser than any professor I’ve had, including Nobel laureates. I was thinking, ‘Where does this come from?’ After he died, I went on to others and every single one I’ve met was like that, and from each one of them, I began to learn something.” His patients have all lived in and around Warrenton. Lindner wrote about a patient’s husband – named Elmer – who grew up during the Great Depression. When

World War II came, Elmer found himself riding beach patrol at Virginia Beach for the Coast Guard. At night, he shot squirrels and usually took them down with one shot. Marksmanship like that tends to get noticed, and the next thing he knew, he was on Iwo Jima, shooting down Japanese Zeros. Once, Zeros came buzzing around in such a heavy formation that it sounded like hornets, but Elmer suspected something else. The Zeros were a diversion. There was a Japanese bomber, moving slow and low, avoiding radar, and almost out of range of his machine guns. He drew a bead and took it out, just before it could hit an American landing craft.

end of the Cold War, he set up a business in Poland, and that kept him extremely busy, but he kept up his volunteer work with hospice. One day, the connections he made in hospice were needed in his own family.

“Every single one tells stories like this,” Lindner stated. “I believe that everyone has an unbelievable narrative to tell, and at the end of life, it’s concentrated. It’s concentrated wisdom. People don’t have to show off any more. They just want to tell somebody, and if you get that narrative, it’s unbelievable.”

Lindner replied that Sarah was pretty emotional at that point, and the woman responded, “I’m sure she is. That’s exactly why it’d be great for her to shoot the crap out of something.”

Lindner – who graduated from George Washington University and the University of Chicago with a law degree and an MBA – has connections that run deep in the area and abroad. After the 52

Lindner had volunteered with a family in Bealeton. The father was dying and the daughter had cancer and was dying as well. When Sarah, Lindner’s own college-age daughter, was diagnosed with a possible case of cancer of the thyroid, the daughter of his patient had a suggestion. “I know Sarah’s worried, so let’s go shooting,” she said.

So the two women with cancer went to Clark Brothers and spent the morning blasting away. When it was over, they went to lunch, and one veteran cancer patient told the new girl about the disease … how to ask for second opinions, to push the doctors and to not let cancer rule her life. The relief was

palpable. “I felt lighter,” Sarah said, “as if some of the worry had been shot away.” “The stress level just went way down,” Lindner added. Her operation was a complete success, and Sarah is cancer-free. Lindner relates the seven most relevant stories from his patients in his book. As he says in the preface, there is a purpose behind that. “In contemporary society, famous voices are ubiquitous, and so often boring, whereas the voices of the common folk are inspiring but muzzled. This book lets them speak for a change.”

Giving It All Away

The idea behind the book came from others. “I was having dinner with friends, and they asked what I was up to, and I started telling stories, without revealing the names of the people, and they said, ‘Oh, my gosh, this is what you should be writing about.’” He explained. “I sent it up to my editor, who was at that time editing ‘The Help,’ and she said, ‘I think this will work.’ That was three-and-aWarrenton Lifestyle

half years ago.” One friend had a revealing response to the stories. “We drove past a small, rundown house, and she said, ‘Who knew that there are more interesting people who live in places like that than are on those reality shows?’” Lindner said that he intends to donate all profits from the sale of the book to organizations committed to improving the lives of hospice patients and their families, including Hospice Support of Fauquier County. The book’s

release date is October 6. He doesn’t expect to go on book tours. “A friend said, ‘Book tours are passe. It’s all social media these days. It’s goodreads.com.’” “I’m hoping to make a lot of money to give it away,” he added, “because there is a lot of need out there … millions of people a year who are dying alone or who lose loved ones, and a little money in hospice goes a long way.” Lindner said that he had found working as a hospice volunteer incredibly rewarding.

“Talking to someone who I don’t know is going to be there the next time, I mean talk about being present, about being in the moment.” He hopes to inspire others to volunteer. “I want more people to volunteer, not because I want to lecture people, but because they will love it. It’s unbelievable entertainment.” “People come to me and say, ‘Wow, I didn’t know this existed. My mother passed away or my father passed away. They were supposed to last two months, but they lasted a year-and-a-half because the hospice people added a qualitative dimension.’” Lindner sold his business. “These experiences have been transformative. This is what I’m doing now. It’s a full-time job. Lindner said that some of his patients have been in their 30s, while others have been in their 90s, but the majority are in their 70s and 80s. Working with the patients has changed his life. “It’s enhanced my life in one way for sure,” he said. “I hope it’s helped me become a better son to my parents. They’re 87, and it’s helped me understand what’s going on in their lives. When you see your parents, when you see your loved ones, you should be happy.” And he is grateful for the life lessons he has picked up. “There’s a special place at that cusp before and after death that I think is a holy place. I really do. I’m blessed to just be in that space.” “Hospice Voices – Lessons for Living at the End of Life” is being released on October 6. All profits will be donated to organizations committed to hospice care.

Warrenton Lifestyle

Jimmie’s Market & The Madison Tea Room Combining the comforts of a time passed with the luxuries of today, Jimmie’s Market and The Madison Tea Room offer Warrentontians a place filled with local history and familiarity. Opening in 1939, owner Jimmie Kidwell wanted to provide his customers with fine personal service and quality food. Fast forward 74 years and current owners Jim and Susan Feeley have preserved this notion and expanded the original market to include The Madison Tea Room. Their décor, fare and friendly staff together make Jimmie’s Market and The Madison Tea Room a fantastical old town fixture. High-top tables, leather armchairs and Georgia O’Keefe prints line the walls and create an open atmosphere for coffee shop-like conversation. The Café at Jimmie’s Market is a comfortable and eclectic place for guests to enjoy gourmet soups, salads, sandwiches and aromatic coffees. Make a stop for the Country Ham Biscuit at breakfast or their flavorful 3 Egg Frittata with bacon or Swiss Cheese. They have bagels all day long and can be served with European style butter, butter and jam, cream cheese, or Havarti cheese. Their Soup

De Jour is always a mystery, as it is made with love the night before. Try the Vegan Salad that is full of natural goodies like greens, tomatoes, artichoke hearts, walnuts, coconut and dressing. The Café has almost 20 different sandwiches to choose from. The Virginia Gent is simple and tasty with stacked turkey and country ham on wheat bread with mayonnaise. A frequent favorite is the Piccadilly that combines rare roast beef, Havarti cheese, tomato and tiger sauce on marble rye bread. Finish up with an espresso, craft beer, lemon bar or gelato.

Indian tea with character that is likened to the Muscatel grape. Gunpowder is a rich blend of green tea from the Orient with a clean fragrant liquor. Pair your tea with their savory and sweet treats. The Madison is a favorite with a scone and croissant served with clotted cream and jam. The Garden Club offers a chicken salad-filled croissant, a scone served with clotted cream and lemon curd, plus two tiny desserts and tea. The Madison Tea Room also serves exquisite coffee concoctions and glasses of wine.

Ladies and gentlemen alike will be pleased with The Madison Tea Room. Once a long-standing barbershop, the space is now a polished reserve for those seeking a moment of refinement. Tables dressed with floral cloths and accenting chairs fill the Tea Room while antiques and distinctive items adorn the walls like serving silver, teapots, cups, saucers and sugar dishes. It’s quite a collection and almost all of it is available to purchase. Catch up with friends or family over a spot of tea like their English Breakfast, that is a blend of black teas, creating a rich and satisfying taste. Their Darjeeling is a delicate

Jimmie’s Market and The Madison Tea Room are located at 22 Main Street near The Black Bear Bistro. Both the Market and the Tea Room are open Monday through Saturday 9:00am to 5:00pm and Sunday from 11:00am to 5:00pm. Pick-up and delivery services are available as well as catering for large parties and events under Kidwell Caterers. Give them a call at (540) 347-1942 to place your order.

Lifting Your


The Louden Family

COBBLER MOUNTAIN CELLARS Oh the Taste of a Local Wine!

And now we head back to Delaplane, Virginia for another great local wine tasting! The winery, Cobbler Mountain Cellars, is located about an hour outside of Washington D.C. by way of Route 66 in Delaplane. From there it is just off of State Road 55 at Ramey Road, continue to Moreland Road and then Long Fall Lane - you have arrived! Cobbler Mountain Cellars is family owned and operated by Jeff Louden and Laura McCarthy Louden. Jeff is also the winemaker and he does a fabulous job! The family has been a part of Big Cobbler Mountain since 1959 and it seems they will be here for a long time to come. Cobbler Mountain Cellars makes an abundance of wines including: Estate Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Meritage, Malbec, Vidal Blanc, Estate Chardonnay and Estate Hard Apple Cider. Each of these is delicious

in their own right and plenty more to choose from including some sparkling and port/brandy style. My favorite was the Estate Cabernet Franc, I picture it paired with seared pork tenderloin over sweet potatoes and sautéed Brussel sprouts with a touch of local bacon, yummy! The oak and stainless aged Chardonnay is very nice showing some crisp apple and pear notes and it should go well with most of your chicken and fish dishes especially if you sear and finish them in the oven. Remember Cobbler Mountain Cellars is child and pet friendly. They have trails minutes away for you to enjoy hiking or biking as well as space for picnics. Live music is available on the first and third Saturday of the month as well. You may want to call ahead and let them know you are coming to see them, as it can be a bit tough to find. Jeff and Laura will make you feel very

comfortable once you are there and you will forget all about the voyage there with the two rights and a left… or was it two lefts and a right? Oh, yes, it is time for brats and apple cider! Cheers, Bob Cobbler Mountain Cellars is located at 5909 Long Fall Lane (10363 Moreland Road for the GPS) in Delaplane, Virginia. For more information about the winery please visit their website at www.cobblercellars.com, like them on Facebook or follow their border collie Corky on Twitter at corkyatcobbler. Give them a call (540)364-2802 for larger parties or just to say hello! Cobbler Mountain Cellars is open Monday 11:00am until 5:00pm all year long.
