October 2014




“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” — L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables Warrentonians often tell me how much they enjoy an article or even an entire issue of The Warrenton Lifestyle. Thank you. Once in a while people tell me what they don’t like or what we may have forgotten. Thank you, too. But it’s those extended conversations about how people became involved in the community that truly invigorate our staff every month. I often talk about our main mission: to get people out of the house and engage in something local, something healthy. Did we accomplish that last month? What can we share with people to get them out this coming month? Last month, we delivered another special feature publication, our dog issue. The photos and feedback made it all worthwhile. Special editor Charlotte Wagner became so engaged in the work here that she opened an office here in Warrenton. Visit her training and behavior center at www.dusklanddogs.com or see her new place at 130 Broadview Ave, Suite 103C. We are always happy to see a new small business come to town.

Training for cadets at Bethel Military Academy included drills and bayonet practice, as seen in this photograph. Note the barracks behind the cadets, and the Bethel Chapel in the background.

Bethel Military Academy, 1867-1911 Military School near Warrenton was once an important part of the community by John T. Toler

As Fauquier County has grown, new residential communities were often named for the historic property upon which they were built, or given another name with historical significance. Familiar examples include Stuyvesant Acres, built on property once owned by the Stuyvesant School; Snow Hill, on land that was once Snow Hill Farm; and more recently, White’s Mill, near Cedar Run, where the mill once operated. One of the earliest residential developments was the Bethel Academy subdivision, built on the site of the Bethel Military Academy, which was in operation from 1867 to 1911. The founder of BMA was Maj. Albert Galatin Smith (1834-1892), one of the 19 children born to Col. William Rowley Smith (1781-1857) and his wife, Lucy Steptoe Blackwell Smith (1793-1879). He was raised at Alton Farm at Bethel, and attended T. Blackwell Smith’s Bethel Boarding School as a child. 10

A.G. Smith later attended the Warren Green Academy, where he became proficient in Latin, French and mathematics. After completing his studies in Warrenton, he worked for a few years in the mercantile business, and as a surveyor in Kansas. In 1858, he returned to Warrenton and married Elizabeth Carter Blackwell (1837-1925), the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Blackwell, of Bethel. He attended the University of Virginia School of Law earning his degree, but he never practiced law. With the outbreak of the Civil War, A.G. Smith joined the Warrenton Rifles as a private, serving under Capt. John Quincy Marr. He was later transferred to the 38th Virginia Regiment, which saw significant action during the war. At the Battle of Gettysburg, he participated in Pickett’s Charge on the Union position on Cemetery Ridge, where he was nearly killed while recovering the regimental colors. For

his bravery, he was given a battlefield commission to the rank of major. Once the war was over, Maj. Smith returned to Fauquier, where he tried farming for a while. After this effort failed, he decided to turn his attention to education, and starting his own school. Maj. Smith’s new school had very humble beginnings. In the spring of 1867, he began renovating an old log building near the Bethel Chapel, that had been used as a hog shelter during the war. It measured 14-ft. by 16-ft., had no window sashes or doors, and was open at one end. Undeterred, Maj. Smith’s school Warrenton Lifestyle

the funding came from supporters of the school, including the parents of students and alumni. In addition to serving as the superintendent, Maj. Smith continued teaching Political Science and Law. W. W. Smith taught Latin, Greek and German, while Capt. J. Blackwell Smith served as Instructor of Elocution. New staff members included Maj. T. Towson Smith, an instructor in English, Natural Sciences and Bookkeeping; Edward S. Blackwell, assistant instructor in English, Mathematics and German; and Richard M. Smith, a tutor in Latin, Greek and German. The Bethel Chapel played a large part in the lives of BMA cadets, including daily gatherings before classes and weekly services. Cadets shown above are presenting the colors in front of the chapel.

was open for the fall session, with 12 students. Tuition was set at just $10 for the entire session. After just one year, the reputation of the school had spread throughout the county, and 35 students, including some girls, were enrolled. The size of the school building was increased with a 12-ft. by 14-ft. addition. It was at this time that the school was named “Bethel Academy,” and Maj. Smith hired his nephew, William Waugh Smith, to assist him. W.W. Smith later became the president of Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Va. Due to health problems, Maj. Smith was forced to limit enrollment for the third session to 15 students, and tuition was raised to $50 per session. However, in 1869, the nearby Evergreen Academy merged with Bethel, and the number of students jumped again. By then Maj. Smith arranged to purchase the property at Bethel from James Blackwell. In order to meet the increased demands, Maj. Smith began building a larger staff. Notable among the new teachers were Prof. James DeRuyter Blackwell (1828-1901), a serious scholar and published poet. Prof. 12

Blackwell brought many new ideas, including the adoption of a military school approach to education. Maj. Smith liked the concept, and Bethel Military Academy soon came into being, with Maj. Smith as Superintendent. The 1870s saw rapid growth at BMA, resulting in a number of changes. Minimum age for cadets was set at 12 years, and girls were no longer admitted. In order to accommodate the classes, a large building program was started. Barracks were built in the form of seven four-room cottages, each housing eight cadets. The barracks were arranged in a semicircle north of the Bethel Chapel, and the Superintendent’s house, where the cadets took their meals, was the “keystone” of the semi-circle. Also erected at that time were the assembly hall, recitation rooms, the armory, social hall, baths and toilets. Later improvements included the BOQ (bachelor officers’ quarters), a gymnasium with skating pond, and a 3,000-sq. ft. pavilion, used for drills during bad weather, and student activities.

Col. C.E. Lightfoot, who had served as an artillery officer in the war, was the Associate Principal and Commandant of Cadets, as well as an instructor in mathematics, French and English. Starting with the 187677 session, a new pre-med course was taught by Dr. Thomas W. Smith (1855-1907), who had attended BMA and earned his medical degree from the College of Physicians and Surgeons in Baltimore. Shortly after the conversion to a military academy, Maj. Smith adopted a new school uniform, which was based on the uniform of the cadets at the Virginia Military Institute. Both dress and fatigue uniforms were made of “Charlottesville gray” cloth with black trim. The dress uniform had additional black braid trim and brass buttons. The facilities at BMA were expanded with the construction of the brick assembly and recitation halls, armory, and outdoor pavilion.

The cost of the new buildings was about $16,000, and much of Warrenton Lifestyle

Cadets took their meals at the Superintendent’s House, where Maj. McIntyre (center) lived with his family. With the staffing in place and all major construction completed, enrollment for the 1872-73 session reached the highest level BMA would attain: 131 cadets, including 96 from Virginia. This included cadets who lived at the school, those who boarded at homes in the community, and day students living in the area. CADET LIFE AT BMA The admission process was very selective, and the majority of the cadets accepted at BMA were serious students. The faculty-to-student ratio was kept at 6-to-1, and with the numerous regulations and cadet military hierarchy, there was very little doubt about what was expected of each student.

From 1896-1898, BMA was located at Fauquier Springs, occupying the hotel and spacious grounds. Formations were held in front of the hotel’s wide verandah.

Cadets were expected to live up to the high standards set at BMA, or be prepared to suffer the consequences. They were required to sign a pledge promising not to bring dishonor to themselves or BMA. While less serious offenses resulted in demerits, insubordination, use or possession of intoxicating liquor and card playing were grounds for immediate dismissal. Accumulating 25 demerits could also result in expulsion. Having pistols at the school was prohibited, but shotguns could be brought in if “deposited with the Superintendent.” No student could keep a dog at BMA.


Social life at BMA was limited, but the school hosted seasonal formal dances and informal “hops” attended by the young ladies of the Bethel area and Warrenton. Many of the girls were the daughters of prominent Fauquier families, including the Misses Eva Ashton Blackwell, May Fletcher, Nannie Leavell Blackwell, Florence Yates, Rosie Tongue, and Jannett and Georgie Green. Hazing of the younger cadets (called “fish” by the upperclassmen) was prohibited after the 1880 session, much to the relief of the parents. BMA was non-sectarian, but “thoroughly Christian in influence,” according to a school catalog. Cadets and faculty attended chapel together at the start of each school day, and every Sunday, they were marched to the chapel for services. If their parents wished, cadets could attend services at churches in Warrenton.

The normal school day began at 7 a.m., with breakfast at 7:30 a.m. and chapel services at 8:30 a.m. Morning classes ran from 8:40 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., followed by mid-morning drill from 10:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. Study and recitation took place from 11:15 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and lunch was served from 12:45 p.m. to 1:30 p.m., at which time study and recitation resumed until 3:30 p.m. Organized recreation was scheduled from 3:30 p.m. until 6 p.m., when supper was served. Study hours were 7 p.m. until Tattoo at 9:30 p.m., and the day ended at 10 p.m., with the sounding of Taps.

Cadets could visit Warrenton on Saturdays, but if there was any misconduct, or if the cadet failed to return by sundown, the privilege could be withdrawn.

ROBERT A. McINTYRE 1860-1952

The chapel was built in 1834 on a lot owned by James Blackwell, with the condition that the building be available to congregations of all faiths. At the time, there were a number of Methodists living in Bethel, including members of the Blackwell and Smith families, who established their church there. They purchased the property Warrenton Lifestyle

Maj. McIntyre came up with the money, but by then he had decided to move the school from Bethel to Fauquier White Sulphur Springs, southwest of Warrenton. In 1896, he signed a contract with the owner, John F. Adams of Baltimore, to lease the property for five years at $2,400 per year, with an option to buy it. Cadets returning for the 1896-97 session were greeted with a totally new environment. The five-story brick hotel had 120 guest rooms, numerous meeting rooms for classes, a modern steam laundry, bathhouse and the landmark pavilion. Athletics were always part of the curriculum at both the Bethel location and the Springs. Above, cadets who played on the BMA football team during the 1897-98 season gathered at the pavilion at Fauquier Springs. from the Blackwell family in 1883. Students who exhibited leadership capabilities were commissioned in Cadet Companies A and B, which were led by a captain, first lieutenant, second lieutenant and first sergeant. Each year, the Commonwealth of Virginia commissioned two captains and four lieutenants in the state volunteer military force from the BMA graduating class. In addition, three outstanding BMA cadets received scholarships to the University of Virginia, VMI and Washington & Lee University. Sports activities included football and baseball teams that competed with schools from Warrenton and other areas. A Cavalry Department was later added to the curriculum, allowing 16 cadets who kept horses at nearby farms to form a cavalry platoon and drill together. The reputation of BMA continued to grow, and in 1878, the Cadet Corps visited the White House, passing in review before Pres. Rutherford B. Hayes, Gen. William T. Sherman and Col. John S. Mosby. In May 1883, the corps marched in a parade in Richmond, where they performed drills in the Manual of Arms before Gov. William E. Cameron.


TEMPORARY MOVE TO THE SPRINGS By 1890, great changes were in store for BMA, as Maj. Smith’s health began to fail. His son-in-law, Maj. Robert A. McIntyre (1862-1952) was a graduate of BMA who had gone on to earn a law degree. After their marriage in 1881, Robert and Elizabeth Smith McIntyre (1860-1940) moved to South Carolina, where he practiced law until returning to Bethel in 1886, to serve as Associate Principal and Commandant of Cadets. By then, enrollment had slipped to only 50 cadets, and with Maj. Smith taking less and less of a role in the academy, Maj. McIntyre began planning sweeping changes at the school. After Maj. Smith’s death in 1892, Maj. McIntyre replaced most of the faculty, and worked hard to attract students from other areas. For the 1893-94 session enrollment increased to 73 students with 32 from Virginia 40 from other states, and one from Panama. With enrollment increasing, Maj. McIntyre planned on renovating the school buildings, which by then were showing their age. Before he started, a court case arose that revealed $10,000 was still owed to the heirs of James Blackwell.

Maj. McIntyre sought to cover costs by leaving tuition low, but increasing enrollment. However, this did not work out as planned. Enrollment in 1896 at “Old Bethel” was 85 cadets; at the Springs, it never exceeded 100 cadets – only about half the number needed to cover the costs. After the 1897-98 session, the “experiment” at the Springs was ended, and the school moved back to Bethel. Should it have been marketed differently? Perhaps. Should a different curriculum been offered? Maybe. It is also likely that new trends in education were taking place, with a movement away from private military academies – but Maj. McIntyre was unaware of the changing paradigm. Returning to the old site, Maj. McIntyre started on the renovations needed to reopen the school. The buildings were remodeled, and a new water system installed. However, enrollment for the 1898-99 session dropped to 40 cadets, and at the end of the school year, Maj. McIntyre resigned to pursue a career as an attorney. Fauquier County residents, concerned that BMA was struggling, expressed their support. According to an editorial in Warrenton’s True Index published in 1898, “Any disaster to Bethel would almost paralyze this county, particularly Warrenton. It has brought in nearly a million dollars, most of which has been left here. Have we been doing our part in return for these benefits?

is to Fauquier.” Maj. McIntyre retained ownership of the property, and BMA was operated in 1901-02 under the stewardship of co-principals E.S. Blackwell and Dr. Thomas W. Smith. Beginning with the 1902-03 session, BMA was leased by Col. William Mauzy Kemper (1881-1954), a BMA graduate and honor graduate of Hampden-Sidney College. Dwindling enrollment continued to be a problem, and Col. Kemper’s efforts to attract more students and cut costs were not enough. He managed to maintain the cherished traditions and the level of excellence, but by the 1910-11 session, enrollment had slipped to 44 cadets. With the celebration of “Finals” on June 7, 1911, Bethel Military Academy passed into history. BMA PROPERTY IS DEVELOPED In the years after the academy closed, most of the buildings were torn down. Mrs. Hope Porter, who grew up at nearby Hopefield, recalls that by the mid-1930s, the Bethel property was just one building surrounded by a grove of trees. She also recalls that during the rebuilding of U.S. 17 in 1933-34, much of the work was done by convicts, who occupied a temporary barracks installed on the property. As a child, Mrs. Porter remembers seeing a chain that ran down the middle of the building, to which the convicts were shackled at night. “Even so, they were always escaping,” she said. “I remember when one of the convicts was caught while hiding under the Airlie bridge.” Maj. McIntyre held on to the BMA property until August 1948,

Aside from the chapel, the only surviving structure used at BMA was the bachelor officer’s quarters, which was extensively remodeled and enlarged when the property was owned by Mr. and Mrs. R. M. Bartenstein. After the property was subdivided in the 1960s, Mr. and Mrs. Bill Green lived in the house for many years; it is now the home of Jon and Kim Cassandra.

when he sold the 90-acre tract and the only surviving building, the bachelor officers’ quarters, to Charles T. Grant. Mr. Grant sold the property to Robert M. and Frances Bartenstein in July 1950. During their ownership, the Bartensteins extensively remodeled the former BOQ, covering it with a brick veneer and installing a new kitchen, two bathrooms, a heating system and plumbing. In November 1959, the Bartensteins sold the property to Alex “Buddy” Yurgaitis, who planned to develop it. Mr. Yurgaitis submitted plans to build the new, 155-lot “Bethel Academy Subdivision,” but an effort to block the development and preserve the site delayed the sale of lots until June 1960. Construction of the first homes started soon afterward. Mr. Yurgaitis recalls that during

excavation, relics from the academy surfaced, including BMA belt buckles, buttons and other items. From the beginning, Mr. Yurgaitis actively supported the congregation at Bethel Methodist Church, working with Sam Lunsford on projects ranging from rebuilding the old bell tower to make it functional to building the new Sunday School wing. In order to provide for future expansion, Mr. Yurgaitis gave the church two adjacent building lots, which have since been used for new facilities and parking, as membership has grown. Looking back, Mr. Yurgaitis is pleased the Bethel Academy Subdivision he created, which has fine homes “…and a lot of fine people living there,” he noted.

Hidden in plain sight by Bert van Gils Warrenton is a town rich in local treasures. Some are hidden, while some exist in plain sight. The paintings on the so called “Mural Building” by the parking lot on the corner of 5th and Lee Streets where the Farmer’s Market is held each Saturday, and behind Great Harvest Bakery, is a treasure in plain sight containing several hidden gems. Seeing that the building is for sale, I wonder about the fate of the murals under their eventual new ownership. I think it is important for people to know the hidden symbols, pictures and meaning within them. When I see the murals I think first of my dear late brother, Leo,

the “Mural Building” who was known to most of the public outside of the family as “Dirk”. Leo was great at finding opportunities and doing good for others. When he was in town briefly on business, he met with the owner of the building, a man named Will Green. During the course of their conversations, Leo learned that Will wanted some murals painted on his building. Leo suggested a young artist, who had recently married into the family at that time, named Stewart White. Stewart painted the murals with civil war themes, relevant to the local Warrenton history, including Mosby’s Rangers, and a scene of a troop train crossing the Alexandria and Orange Railroad tressel, but if you look closely you will see even more symbols

of meaning and significance to this country history beyond the Civil War. For instance, while Stewart was working on the murals, the attacks of September 11, 2001 occurred. Looking at the large mural facing the parking lot, if you move your eye from the train crossing the railroad bridge to the water below, you will see the twin towers of the World Trade Center reflected upside down in the water–-a lasting tribute. It moves me each time I look at it. I reached out to Stewart and after these many years I am gratified that he remembers me and our town. He remembers Warrenton as “a very special place”. I asked him to share his thoughts about the murals.

In speaking of the large mural with the 9/11 tribute Stewart wrote the following: By using a scene of a nearby creek where a railroad used to run, I imagined a stopped train and Union soldiers on one side and Confederate prisoners on the other. I suggested portraits of the conflicts major

players in the landscape. A. Lincoln is reflected in the water below a tree where as Gen. Lee is in the tree itself. Gen U.S. Grant is implied in the negative spaces in the lower left just to the right of the drummer boy (modeled by my daughter Olivia). If the Civil war was a defining moment for the Union in the 19 Century, the incidents of 9/11 are a defining moment in the War on Terror and put into motion events that to this day still challenge the United States as to the meaning and defense of Freedom. The two figures represent the civilians and /or innocence of those caught in the crossfire of these conflicts . The torches they bear are in fact the twin towers of the World Trade Center. The mood in the country at that was anger and shock. We were deeply introspective about


our values particularly in the face of the horrible fate of those attacked and those that went to rescue them. A strong patriotism also swept the country, much like the passions that led to the Civil War. The first mural Stewart painted is the smaller one, facing Main Street. It contains a reference to local politics. As Stewart recalls: Initially, I painted the mural on the East side of the building as a Col. Mosby tribute. I stuck with blue and grey colors because the sun would not alter them very much. Convenient that the participants of the Civil war also chose Blue and Grey as uniform colors. During the process, Will Green spoke to me about his fight with the City Council regarding the right to paint a sign on the building. So I painted him in the gable window with

binoculars watching the City Hall cupola and tower which is painted in the lens. A Ranger sits with his back towards us sitting on a playing card . This was to symbolize Mosby’s playing with the ‘rules of the game’. His tactics were considered unorthodox and, well, cheating. Gen J Stuart’s face and cigar is hidden in the rocks on the sepia side of the mural. Personally, I believe the murals hold value and more like them should adorn our town. If I had a building in Old Town, I would certainly invite Stewart back to paint more. Stewarts work can be viewed at stewartwhitestudios.com.

When Linus sits at the table to pen his letter to the Great Pumpkin in the holiday classic, “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!” he is surrounded by questioning and doubting friends. Their curiosity is only mildly satiated by Linus’s explanation of the mythical figure, and most of Linus’s descriptions are dismissed outright as fake. What a blockhead! Perhaps the Peanuts crew could have been convinced of the Great Pumpkin’s existence if he had better explained just how the great pumpkin arrives in the pumpkin patch in time for Halloween? If only he knew what Warrentonian’s know: the Great Pumpkin rides his bike, of course!

On Saturday, October 25th, 2014,

The 21st Annual Great Pumpkin Ride, organized by Fauquier Trails Coalition, Inc., will depart from the trailhead of the Warrenton Branch Greenway at 9 am. The bicycle event raises funds to support the construction and development of trails and greenways throughout Fauquier County. Popular with riders both local and from across the mid-Atlantic region, the Great Pumpkin Ride has become a favorite way end to the biking season and kick off the winter holidays. Riders choose one of three routes (24, 47 or 68 miles) that wind through beautiful rural roads with gorgeous scenery and spectacular fall foliage that Fauquier County is famous for. Organizers and dozens of local volunteers provide a range of support services to help keep them safe and comfortable along the way. Roving support crews provide roadside assistance to bikers when problems arise. Beyond the gorgeous scenery and friendly faces, many riders say they return year after year for the sumptuous rest stops that highlight

delicious local fare and hospitality. Playing on the fall theme, volunteers serve everything from pumpkin soup, to pumpkin pie, pumpkin bars, even pumpkin seeds to tired and hungry riders. One of the popular stops, Poplar Springs Inn, is a perennial favorite of the riders because of the warm and rustic atmosphere of the Carriage house. When riders face the cold temperatures and stiff winds that can often occur in late October, there’s nothing like a cup of hot soup by the roaring fire of the quaint inn’s dining room. New to the ‘Pumpkin’ this year is the rest stop at the Old Bust Head Brewing Company. Riders will have an opportunity to relax in the new Taproom, and hear about the production of their popular craft beers. In addition, the Mount Horeb United Methodist Church in Catlett and the Remington Baptist Church will also be providing facilities and volunteers for rest stops. The growing reputation for ‘Pumpkin’

hospitality has made the ride increasingly popular in the regional bicycling community. Due to the event’s positive reputation organizers made the decision to limit the field to 1250 riders to allow for more efficient planning and provide a safe experience for everyone. Start times for the 3 separate rides are staggered to spread the participants more evenly on the course and reduce congestion at the trailhead and in downtown Warrenton. Members of the Warrenton Police Department and the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Department are providing planning advice and will be on hand throughout the day to help direct traffic at key points along the route to protect the safety of the riders and ease October 2014

traffic congestion in Warrenton. Riders (who may take up to 6 hours to complete the event) will be welcomed back to Warrenton at the Celebrate Trails! festival. Thanks to a generous grant from the Dominion Foundation, this event also invites local citizens out to support trails and greenways in Fauquier County. Deer Park Avenue, a rock band fronted by sisters Sarah and Stephanie Snyder, will entertain throughout the afternoon with original songs and punk-pop standards. Planned family friendly events include a “bicycle rodeo” sponsored by the Fauquier Sheriff’s Department. The

Costumes abound at the annual ride. Remember that safety priorities include ease of movement and unobstructed vision.

rodeo is intended to teach young riders about traffic awareness and safe riding techniques. Various trail-related organizations will also be on hand with activities and information. Antique bicycle enthusiasts will enjoy a demonstration by the Wheelmen, and the Unistars Unicycling Showtroupe will also amaze the crowd with their balance and dexterity. The best part: Admission to the festival is free and open to the public! With the cost to maintain and grow Fauquier’s pedestrian trail system exceeding $1Million per quarter mile, the Trail Coalition is thankful for the matching funds provided through grants procured through VDOT’S commitment to support development projects that aide pedestrian travel. “We’d have to host a lot of bike rides to build even a quarter mile trail on our own!” says Coalition member and retired VDOT engineer Bob Moore. “Instead, our matching funds have helped Fauquier County successfully pursue major grants for trail construction projects throughout the county.” A grant awarded through the “SAFETEA-LU” bill (Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users) was awarded to Fauquier County last year by the Federal Highway Administration thanks to $10,000 in matching funds from the Coalition. This grant is currently funding a connector trail linking the Margaret 28

M. Pierce Elementary School in Remington with the adjacent neighborhood. In addition, Fauquier Trails Coalition, Inc. continues work toward the extension of the Warrenton Branch Greenway. Members of FTCI (formerly the Citizens for the Warrenton Branch) were instrumental in the development of the popular greenway. According to Larry Miller, Director of Fauquier County Parks and Recreation, “Fauquier Trails Coalition has been an invaluable partner to the Parks and Recreation Department, and to trail development throughout the County for over 25 years. They have supported our efforts through fundraising, trail maintenance, completing title work, gaining public support of projects, hosting informational meetings, as well as securing right-of-ways when needed.”

One might never imagine that some of Santa’s busiest elves wear a badge and drive a squad car. In Fauquier County, we have a force of holiday cheer to be reckoned with when it comes to our law enforcement community. For many kids struggling with adversity in our area, Christmas is not always a time of joy and happiness. The Fauquier County Sherriff’s Department has instituted a program called Fauquier Cops for Children (FCFC), a 501(c)3, whose primary purpose is to provide assistance and support to the youth of Fauquier County. Made up of members of the Fauquier Sheriff’s Office, Warrenton Police Department, Virginia State Police and Fauquier County Department of Social Services, the group’s main goal is to provide an opportunity for a better Christmas for Fauquier children and teens who have been adversely affected by crime, abuse or other situations which required law enforcement action. Knowing that these kids have seen or experienced some of the worst of aspects of adult life is an inspiration for this group to ensure that the children have the opportunity to experience the joys of Christmas through a child’s eyes once again. These volunteers raise funds through private donations to take children and teens shopping for the holidays at Wal-Mart. But, the festive fun doesn’t end there! The kids are then invited to an exclusive private brunch with the Big Man himself, Santa Claus! Fun games and social activities, followed by help gift wrapping their haul from the shopping trip provide a meaningful experience for all involved. “Many of the children want to know if they can spend their money on other items besides gifts for themselves,” says Lt. James Hartman. “They want to know if they can buy food because their family doesn’t have enough to eat. Some ask if they can buy nice work clothes for their parents. They just don’t have enough of the basics.” The effort to share love and joy with these kids is supported 100% by donations from the community and the officers themselves. It has been so successful that past recipients have returned to help out and make this a memorable time for kids in tough circumstances. The day is always a great success providing each child or teen with a meaningful experience with our communities’ law enforcement professionals. Last year FCFC was able to provide 80 children with holiday love and warmth. The organization is seeking support from the community to help continue this program and its positive impact on kids in need.

ARTS &Entertainment

“Our lives are a patchwork, and it depends on us a good deal how the bright and dark bits get put together so that the whole is neat, pretty, and useful when it is done,” -- Patty’s Patchwork, Louisa May Alcott. It all started in 1989 with an ad in the newspaper: the invitation for local crafters to gather twice a month at Bethel United Methodist Church to compare notes, share friendship and make light work of larger-scale service projects. Twenty five years later the Fauquier County Quilters are going 45 members strong, and stitch by stitch, their bi-weekly meeting have built a vibrant focal point in our local arts community. When the group gathers in the fellowship hall of the historic church on Blantyre Road, one can almost imagine that their cheerful chatter echos those conversations of quilting bees of America’s past. Celebrations of marriages, new babies, home purchases… all are bright spots in the fabric of the American dream. Soft hugs and comforting words are given in condolences of illness and the passing of fleeting life. Then, busy hands take to the needle and thread, as feet press pedal to the metal of whirring sewing machines as the group soldiers forward together in the building of a passion, and a community.

Oohs and Ahhs resound over finished triumphs and a chorus of friendly advice is offered at the crossroads of a challenge: a seam that just won’t fit together straightly. The puffs of steam from the ironing board punctuate the laughter shared among friends as complex projects slowly but surely take shape. While the group of quilters refers to themselves as a guild, much of their activity is formulated around the traditional “bee” model. Membership is formal and the participants commit to working together on group projects

that would otherwise be unwieldy if taken on by an individual. In recent years, the Fauquier Quilters have put their sewing skills to use to brighten the lives of children facing hospitalization and surgery. Bringing cheer to a scary time in a child’s life is the main intent in the group’s efforts to sew surgical caps using fabrics appealing to a youngster’s imagination. Whatever unease a patient may be feeling with the prospect of heading to the operating table is tempered somewhat by the opportunity to choose a “party

hat” made of fabric decorated with SpongeBob Squarepants, Mickey Mouse, Superman, Hello Kitty, etc. The group has collectively made hundreds of these caps which are donated to the surgical suite at Fauquier Hospital and to Childrens’ National Medical Center at NIH. When surgery is over, patients are also recipients of the Fauquier Quilters love and help with a specially decorated pillowcase, as part of the Million Pillowcase Challenge. The nationwide project begun by American Patchwork and Quilting Magazine inspires participants to sew cheerful decorated pillowcases to brighten up convalescence for children and adults facing serious circumstances. Now well-exceeding the original proposed one million pillowcase goal, the charitable effort, supported in part by Fauquier Quilters, donates pillowcases to hospitals, rehab centers, nursing homes and homeless shelters. Kelly Ann’s Quilting in Warrenton is the collection point for donated pillowcase projects. Lending a touch of home and hospitality to strangers in need is a thread of quilting bee culture that can be traced back to the earliest instances of such organizations. Before the prevalence of sewing machines strong enough to penetrate through all three layers of quilt fabric,

groups of talented women would gather to place the final top stitches in often-intricate patterns, giving the blankets the traditional “quilted” appearance. Quilts were presented as gifts to bless a new couple, a new child or a new home. After all of the exacting skill required to fit the geometric pieces of a special quilt together, attention to detail was evermore important in completing this final task. Because of this, women gathered for long vigils in the parlors of homes, and even outdoors, seated next to large frames on which the quilts were stretched so that multiple hands could take to the final craftsmanship of the piece. This brought about a unique conversational atmosphere that had even more significance on the course

of American history than the coziness of our beds and homes. In the 1830’s and 40’s the writings and speeches of Susan B. Anthony were commonplace conversation in many quilting bees, furthering political will for the abolition of slavery, and women’s suffrage. Elizabeth Cady Stanton is also well known to the history of quilting as some of America’s most famous quilting designs and bees of the late 1800’s came from her hometown of Seneca Falls, NY where the woolen mills and lace-trade were an epicenter for the Women’s Suffrage Movement. While the subject of conversation at our local group may not always be so heavy, several of the participating members have used their artistic talent to effect change in our community. On display at Fauquier Hospital, a colorful quilt depicting a mystical creature hangs on display outside of the secondfloor elevators. “Phoenix Bent in Sorrow” was presented to the hospital by Fauquier Quilter, Astrid Kosko, in memory of her daughter Michelle, who had passed away from cancer at the young age of 24. The vibrant colors of the quilt and the artful placement of each and every stitch are a testimony to the daily hope and struggle of those facing illness, and the beauty of a life changed by love. The message is not lost on those who pass by the work of art on their visits to the hospital. The quilters meet on the first and third Tuesday of every month, with the first meeting comprising of business activities and planning. The group plans to take part in their annual display at Sky Meadow State Park’s Frontier Farm Heritage Days on weekends in October, which requires significant planning and coordination. They also plan an annual retreat for members to “get away from it all” and focus on creativity and technique. Workshops and programs take place on the second meeting of the month, with special technique seminars and clinics on this seemingly limitless artistic medium.

National Treasure

Found in Local Garage By George Rowand A painting stored in a Fauquier garage for years now has a new home … the National Portrait Gallery in Washington DC. It was a long and winding road from when artist Jay Wesley Jacobs originally was commissioned to paint a portrait of President Harry Truman to its delivery to the gallery. Tom Sentz, owner of the Berkley Galleries in Old Town Warrenton was the facilitator for portrait owner A Birney W Robert. “The portrait came into my hands after my father’s death,” Robert explained. “It was stored at the Mayflower Hotel, and it was moved around a couple of times, and it ended up in storage with a lot of family papers in my garage at the farm, where it was for years and years. “One winter when I was there, I was going through that side of the garage and located this large box. We opened up this crate, and we carefully unwrapped it, and we just stood there, and there was this magnificent portrait of President Truman. My father and Truman were close personal friends. This one had been commissioned by my father. Truman had never allowed anyone to paint him before. It somehow ended up back in my father’s possession. I couldn’t tell you how. It’s a real mystery.” Robert – who lived in Fauquier County for 42 years – hung the portrait in her home for more than a decade. When she decided to move to North Carolina, she asked Sentz to help her decide what to do with it. Sentz called the Truman Library in Missouri and was disappointed with what he heard initially. “I spoke to a woman there, and she said that they weren’t interested in the painting. ‘We already have it,’ she said, so I thought that maybe we had a copy,” Sentz stated. He and his staff did extensive research, finding out large and little facts – such as one of Truman’s sittings had been postponed by V-J Day in August, 1945 – but he also discovered that there had been two paintings of Truman, and the one from the Fauquier garage one was the larger of the two. It initially was commissioned to hang in the U.S. Senate, where Truman had been a Senator for 10 years before being elected Vice President. Sentz called the Truman Library again and spoke with a different person. “She said, ‘Ah, so it’s finally surfaced,’” Sentz said, “so I knew that we were on the right track.” Setting a value on it was problematic, but Sentz eventually found a legitimate buyer who made a serious offer for the portrait, and then he and Robert contacted the National Portrait Gallery, which offered a price that was in the ballpark. Robert accepted.

“I really wanted the National Portrait Gallery to have it,” Robert said. “It belongs to our country, and I’m delighted that they have it.” Sentz said that he had to be certain of the portrait’s authenticity before he contacted the gallery. “The artist was a known portrait artist,” Sentz said, “but when you go to the National Portrait Gallery, you’ve got to know more than they do. We had done a lot of research.” He related how he took the wrapped portrait to the gallery, how staff members came out to meet him, took it, and then disappeared through several glass and steel doors, leaving him alone. “You have to remember, that place contains the heritage of a nation,” he said, “and they don’t let just anybody into some of those areas.” Still, for Sentz, the experience was enjoyable. “This whole thing has been a lot of fun, probably the most fun I’ve had at the gallery,” he stated. While Robert was pleased that the portrait of one of our presidents was going to be displayed where everybody could enjoy it, it was not without some regret on her part when it was packed up and taken away. “It hung in my home for 10 years at least,” she explained. “It was really like having a friend in the room with you. The portrait is so beautiful. I remember Mr. Truman from when I was a child, and I remember how kind his face was, and this portrait really brings forth the kind of person he was. I have to admit that I’m going to miss it.”

With the explosive growth of the wine trade in Virginia over the past 10 years, the number of wine events showcasing local wines has also grown. For many people, the challenge of looking for a good wine while faced with a large variety of wineries can be overwhelming. In addition, keeping from over-indulging can be a challenge.

How do the pros tackle large wine events? Find/hire a designated driver. Be smart. Consuming in moderation is recommended, of course, but at festivals with fresh air, sunshine, and free-flowing wine, it’s quite easy to get in over your head. Plus, what’s better for prolonging your escape from reality than having someone else navigate the NoVA highways for you? It’s the only way to travel. Do your homework. What do you like to drink and when do you like to drink it? What foods do you like? What wines go well with those dishes? What type of tastes and aromas do you enjoy? Experienced wine drinkers and professionals keep notes and use those notes to taste and categorize wines. Now that you have thought about your tastes and what you like, it’s time to actually taste wine. Professionals use a multi-step process when tasting any wine: • Swirl the wine in your glass. What colors do you see? Is the wine clear or cloudy? Are there drips on the sides of the wine glass? • Sniff the wine. What aromas do you notice? Are these aromas strong or subtle? • Slurp the wine. After sniffing the wine, put some in your mouth and slurp. While this may violate everything your mother taught you about manners at the table, slurping wine opens up both your taste

buds and nose, allowing you to more fully experience the various aromas, tastes and textures of the wine. What do you smell? How does it taste? Is the texture of the wine smooth or harsh? Spit/swallow the wine. Professionals spit out the wine into a nearby receptacle or back into the glass. (Local custom promotes swallowing a small amount.) Either way, do you still taste something after the wine leaves your mouth? This is known as “the finish”. • Taking notes of what you see, smell and taste helps you determine your preferences and which wine to pair with which foods. With all that in mind, how do you keep from getting overwhelmed at a wine event? • Stay hydrated. Bring water and sip it between wines to both clear your palate and dilute any excess wines that are in your system. • Bring crackers. Anything from saltines to oyster crackers to specialized biscuits or breads work well and help soak up any wines in your system. Many festivals offer vending of fresh-baked baguettes. YUM! • Concentrate on a limited number of wines or wineries. If you like only Chardonnay, taste just that wine from each winery and compare them. If you are unfamiliar with a particular winery or group of wineries, limit your visit to them and compare their wines with the wines you know.

Remember the #1 rule of wine tasting – the best wine is the one you like.

If you follow these tips, you will have more fun, and get the most out of your next wine festival experience.

Steve Oviatt is President of the Haymarket Gainesville Business Association and runs his own consulting business in addition to working for a number of local wineries. Steve acknowledges that his daughter has taught him everything he knows about wine. He lives in Catharpin with his wife, Nancy.

The Leap Into Self-Employment by Nicholas Sicina


fter working for someone else, self-employment can be an exhilarating change. But it’s also fraught with potential pitfalls, including the possibility of running out of money before your new venture even gets off the ground. “The more planning you can do beforehand, the more you’ll increase your chances of growth and success,” says Raj Tumber, a Las Vegas–based smallbusiness advisor with SCORE, a nonprofit organization that provides guidance to entrepreneurs. Tumber, who has plenty of experience watching business owners meet the challenges of getting a venture started, offers four steps all entrepreneurs should consider to help prepare financially for self-employment.

4 steps all entrepreneurs should consider to help financially prepare for self-employment 1. Create a thorough business plan.

Perhaps you’ve figured out where you add value in your core profession for a specific clientele, and you’re ready to begin offering that service. Before you start seeing clients, write out a detailed business plan. That way you can get a firm handle on startup expenses such as legal fees and a marketing budget, as well as ongoing costs such as office space and supplies. 2. Budget your transition.

Even if your business reaches all your revenue targets during its first year, you’ll probably still see a drop in your income as you work toward generating a consistent profit and reinvest in your new venture. Tumber suggests saving consistently for one year before leaving your fulltime job to build a cash buffer that can help sustain your household through the transition. To prepare, ask your Financial Advisor to help you anticipate costs and map out strategies

for potentially boosting your savings and building that financial cushion. In particular, make sure you budget for: Your tax bill. The estimated quarterly federal taxes you’ll need to pay for your business should top your list of business expenses. This obligation covers income and selfemployment taxes. You could face penalties if pay them late, even if you expect a tax refund.1 Health insurance costs. If you have a spouse or partner, the most cost-effective way to obtain health insurance might be through his or her employer. But if that isn’t possible, an insurance broker can help you search for appropriate coverage for individuals and small businesses. Just be prepared for a step-up in costs. Retirement investing. If retirement is still in the future, you’ll need to keep saving for it. Self-employed workers can contribute to traditional IRAs called simplified employee pension (SEP) plans.2 Check contribution limits and investment options with your Financial Advisor, and discuss other options for saving more if you determine that it’s part of your retirement strategy.

3. Make your office space work for you.

If you plan to work from a home office when you launch your business, you might qualify for a tax deduction. To apply for that claim, your residence’s work area must be either the principal place of business or a space to meet with clients, patients or customers. You might also qualify if you use a detached structure that is part of your home, such as a garage or studio, in connection with your line of work.3 4. Line up credit early.

It’s always smart to line up access to credit before you need it, and that’s especially true when you’re considering a switch to self-employment. Qualifying for a loan is likely to be much smoother while you still have a stable income. Otherwise, you are likely to face stricter underwriting standards as a self-employed borrower. “As a businessperson, you will probably need to show your last couple years of profit-and-loss statements, which isn’t possible for a brand-new business,” Tumber says. Wells Fargo Advisors does not provide legal or tax advice. 1 Internal Revenue Service, “Estimated Taxes,” http://www.irs.gov/ Businesses/Small-Businesses-&-Self-Employed/Estimated-Taxes.

Warrenton has no set start time or end time for Trick-or-Treat. Motorists should be especially careful to be on the lookout for young children and revelers throughout the day and evening. Children’s costumes should be wellfitting to avoid tripping, and should not obscure vision. Use caution when entering and exiting driveways. Never use your cellphone while driving Discourage teens from driving on Halloween. There are too many distractions and hazards for inexperienced drivers. Reflective and glow-in-the-dark clothing adds safety and style to your Halloween Wardrobe! Bring a flashlight and NEVER trick-ortreat without an adult (they can be compensated with Snickers Bars) Porch light out = no more candy

Happy Halloween!

Say Good-Bye to Back Pain Divorce Mediation

Philip Mulford, J.D. Professional Mediator Since 1990

What Our Clients Say…….

“Philip Mulford was the most constant force in our divorce process. It was a very testy time and Philip kept both of us on an even keel as we worked towards an equitable solution. It would have not happened without him. Whenever I talk with someone who may be headed down this path I recommend Mulford Mediation, wholeheartedly.”
