he Best of the Best. That is what we are calling the winners of Warrenton Lifestyle Magazine’s Best of Warrenton Awards as chosen by our readers. This is the first of what we intend will be many annual celebrations of the finest organizations and people in our community. A few months ago we sent out over 10,000 ballots asking our readers to tell us what they felt were the best of our great Warrenton area businesses, people, places and organizations in over 90 categories. The citizens responded well and we officially announced the winners at a party at Legends Event Center on August 10th. All of the winners were invited along with members of the Town and County governments and a few other select VIPs. Guests were treated to a fun evening with great food and beverages provided by the Legends staff.











Mayor George Fitch opened the evening with encouraging remarks for all businesses in Warrenton, complimenting everyone on their excellence in business performance. The Mayor, himself, was voted Favorite Elected Official. We invited all of the guests to cheer for those that had been selected as Warrenton’s favorites. Some of the rooting for the winners was almost deafening as well as entertaining. We wanted people to have a good time and they certainly did. Among those that received the loudest cheers were Fred’s Deli on Main Street, attorney Robin Gulick (where else but Warrenton would you find so much love shown for a lawyer?), Rankin’s Hardware, The Fauquier Bank, TimesDemocrat writer George Rowand and Andreas Keller. If you know these people, you will understand why they are so adored. If you don’t, make the effort to get to know them. They are Warrenton. Other winners included Borders, which received the most votes in one category and Salon Emage won in two categories including the one I believe is most important, Best Customer Service. The big winner of the evening was Molly’s Irish Pub, taking six awards including best nightspot and best bartender, Sam Rogers. Kitty and Laurie Enright of Molly’s were given the Best of the Best Award for winning in the most categories and receiving the most total votes. The list of winners is as varied as Warrenton itself. National chains, mom and pop businesses, new stores and long-time standards were all winners. David can still beat Goliath in Warrenton as we’ve identified great personal service as the dominant theme among the winners. Being the best means you are the favorite of the people today. What you deem is the best may not be the right decision for your neighbor. I looked at the winners and realized that about 40% of the winners were not my first choice. What that signifies Warrenton Lifestyle

is that we have many more wonderful businesses and people that did not win but they are still worth exploring. So why did we do this? One of our intentions with The Warrenton Lifestyle Magazine is to continually celebrate all of the terrific things we have in Warrenton. Another is to give greater exposure of our businesses and organizations to the people that live here, over half of whom are commuters without promoting their competition from other tax bases. We also think it’s important to continually revisit our community as changes occur on a daily basis. We may not like all of them but we must concede that the majority of changes are demand driven. We want people to debate the winners. It’s good for business if people are arguing that the right choice was or wasn’t made. The most important thing is that we want local residents to have an opinion and passion about our great Town. With so many positive features of Warrenton, how could we ever run out of material? There is obvious competition in our area when reviewing the ballots. We believe most competition makes for better business and better choices for our citizens. It makes all parties work harder and allows the best to succeed while eliminating those that don’t adapt. There were several categories where the winners won by only a few votes including the category where our firm, Piedmont Press & Graphics, won – Best Place for Printing/ Copies. We narrowly beat our friendly, national competitor, Staples. We mention them because we love what they’ve brought to Warrenton – readily available supplies and selfservice copying – two things we had dabbled in before and decided we didn’t want to do. Because of Staples, we have choices right here where we live without having to drive to another County. Since Staples arrived on the scene, our copy center business has more than doubled. We think this September 2006

is because people have two very good choices and don’t even think about driving to another county. Also, because the voting was so close, our team at PP&G knows we will have to raise our level of service again in order to compete with them next year for this award. That’s always good for you, the consumer. So consider the Best Of list as just a “slice” of the thousands of wonderful businesses, places, and people we have to offer. After all, Warrenton is one Photos: (from top to delicious home-baked pie. bottom): Robin Gulick, Best We started with about Attorney and members of his 150 potential categories to office.

We now have a monthly survey available at our website. Please participate. In a handful of the categories, the winners were almost unanimous. In others, there were tightly contested races that came down to the final days. There were some great surprises, and, in my opinion, no disappointments. So, agree with the people who voted or not, but I urge you to take the time to find out your own favorite for next year. It could be someplace you haven’t even heard of until today. Thank you to our team at Piedmont Press & Graphics and especially to my son Mike, one of our summer interns, for tabulating thousands and thousands of votes.

Living A Healthier Lifestyle Get Ready for Fall Sports


by Amy Petty

or many Warrenton families, going back to school means more than reading, writing and alarm clocks. It also means back to the football field, the tennis courts, basketball gyms and more. While many student athletes now train year round for their sports, it’s still important to listen to the experts when resuming regular practices or beginning your first foray into conditioning. Kendal Blaser is a physical therapist with more than 20 years of experience. Owner of the practice named Warrenton’s Best Place for Physical Therapy in this issue of Warrenton Lifestyle Magazine, she’s seen her fair share of sports related injuries. Her six point approach to getting back into the swing of things has solid steps to avoiding injury and achieving fitness.


1. Start gradually. Almost all sports require running, so athletes (or aspiring ones) should take care to start slowly and add distance gradually to their

great care to acclimate the kids to the team and to the workouts.”

workouts. Most team sports are going full throttle when actual practice starts, so make sure to do some pre-season work if possible. But that’s still not the same as working out with the team cautions Steve Downs, Fauquier High School’s Athletic Trainer. “We take

In addition to athletes, Jim sees a fair number of students coming in to buff up or lose a few pounds. He says, “There are lots of similarities between students’ interests and adults’ interests in fitness. Their reasons for being here are pretty much the same. Anyone can

Jim Pulchine, Director of Fauquier High School’s wellness program and a certified strength and conditioning specialist, develops programs specific to the sport for the student athletes, as well as adults who have joined the high school’s gym. Jim says, “No matter the age, research has shown there is no substitute for resistance training. Not running, treadmills or elliptical machines. I develop programs to meet the level of the individual so they can build up their strength.”

find success if they’re willing to take the time to get in shape.” 2. Stretch. Time and time again we’re told the importance of stretching before and after a workout, but it’s easy to skip this step when we’re in a hurry. Big mistake. Kendal says, “Sore muscles are much more likely to occur when returning to fall sports activities. Stretching, particularly following exercise, can help minimize the muscle soreness the following day.” In fact, Pulchine sets up groups with Chip Maloney at Chestnut Forks for

September 2006

3. Keep well hydrated. Remember not only to drink plenty of water during activities, but also before conditioning. School athletic programs are very conscious of this issue, according to Steve. He says that during the hottest days of football camp, practice was moved to 5:00 a.m - 9:00 a.m. to take advantage of the coolest part of the day. And while eight glasses

of water is the recommended intake for your average Joe, that amount needs to be increased relative to activity level. 4. Good nutrition. With all the low-carb chatter, it’s easy to forget that carbohydrates are necessary for maintaining a high energy level when working out. Also, athletes (like the rest of us) should try to lay off the fast food and follow recommended nutritional guidelines. The Food and Drug Administration’s food pyramid is a good place to start. 5. Adequate sleep. We all can get tired and cranky when we’re not getting enough sleep, but Kendal says this is probably the most commonly neglected component of teenagers’ routines. “The athletes need to recognize that their bodies are better prepared to condition when they’ve had enough rest. They’re more alert, which decreases their risk of injury, and their bodies are more tolerant of the exertion required.” See Healthy on Page 12


Healthy cont’d from Page 11

6. Proper footwear. Be certain to invest in good shoes. Mike Stanislaw, certified distance coach and owner of On the Run Sports in Warrenton, agrees. “For anyone doing athletics, there are many different foot types. It’s really important to get a shoe shaped to your foot. If it’s a high arch, you need a narrower shoe width, low arches need more of a stability shoe. Make sure the


shoe is holding your foot properly. It gets pretty technical. There are so many injuries with people choosing the wrong shoe, I’ve even done it myself.” Mike also says it’s important to have the right shoe for the right sport. While high school athletes are usually well aware of this, less seasoned athletes need to be educated.

she says, “It’s always a tough transition from the lazy days of summer to the more demanding days on the athletic field, but by observing these six simple steps, it may not be quite so painful!”

Whether your son is the next Michael Vick or your daughter is the next Mia Hamm, make sure they’re following these steps for a healthy athletic season. Take the time to educate yourself and your children. Kendal Blaser speaks the truth when

Warrenton’s Magical


By Kitty Enright

he Partnership for Warrenton will be holding its 17th annual “An Evening Under The Stars” gala and auction on September 16, 2006 at 8:00 p.m. This is Fauquier County’s largest fund-raising social event and should not be missed! The event is held outdoors, under the stars, on Main Street in Historic Old Town Warrenton. Main Street is transformed into an impressive magical wonderland of white lights and chic elegance. Participating restaurants display their cuisine on white clothed tables, which they extravagantly bedeck in hopes of winning the coveted ‘best of’ award. Further setting the enchanting scene, invitations suggest “semi-formal attire” and add “black tie optional”. Excitement fills the air while over 500 guests make their way along Main Street where they will sample tastes

from the menus of over twenty-five of the areas finest restaurants, inns and caterers. One of the highlights of the evening is dancing the night away to the music of the legendary group, Daryl Davis and his Band. Back by popular demand, Daryl Davis and his five-piece rhythm and blues, boogie-woogie band will set the tone, as guests dance to a variety of upbeat tunes. As a performer, Daryl 14

Davis has worked with countless greats such as Elvis Presley’s Jordanaires, The Coasters, Chuck Berry and Muddy Waters Legendary Blues Band. Davis was the featured pianist on Caphas & Wiggins’ 1992 Grammy Award winning album, Flip Flop and Fly. Daryl Davis and his Band should not be missed. Even the legendary Chuck Berry praised Davis as a “very, very fine musician. You really ought to hear him”. The evening will also feature a fabulous silent auction with numerous items such as paintings, golf packages, a rock fishing trip with over night stay, jewelry, spa packages, a sailing trip for four aboard a 42 foot sailing yacht, bed and breakfast holidays, gift baskets galore and much more. This year, Hartman Jewelers will be donating a gorgeous piece of jewelry. Raffle tickets will be sold throughout the evening for a chance to win the dazzling prize. Previous years have included honoring distinguished guests, whose names have helped bring attention to the event. Past honorees have included Robert Duvall and Willard Scott. This year, event coordinators have chosen to honor a husband and

wife. Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) Tour pro, Kris Tschetter (pronounced ‘cheddar’) and her husband and well-known golf instructor, Kirk Lucas, will be this year’s honorary guests. You don’t have to be a golfer to appreciate the couples ‘celebrity’ and their enthusiasm to help raise funds to protect Warrenton’s Historic District. The Partnership is delighted that the couple agreed to attend. In fact,

Warrenton Lifestyle

Evening Under the Stars the couple says they are flattered to be invited and are looking forward to Saturday’s gala. Kirk and Kris own 75 acres in Warrenton where they have a golf instruction and practice facility. They have plans to build their dream home on the beautiful property. Kirk is a renowned golf instructor who has written for many golf magazines and has frequently appeared on the golf channel. He has instructed many PGA and LPGA players and continues to teach his favorite pupil - his wife, Kris! In the midst of her 19th year on the LPGA tour, Kris just finished her 16th US Women’s Open. Kris is among the top women on the LPGA tour. Kris surpassed the million dollar mark in 1995 and the 3 million dollar mark in 2000. Kris and Kirk have two beautiful daughters: Lainey Elizabeth is 3 years old and Kyra Marie is 23 months old. They love Warrenton and are frequently in Old Town. This year’s fundraiser will benefit The Partnership for Warrenton, a volunteer-driven non-profit organization that serves the public by creating a vital downtown through economic revitalization and historic preservation efforts. Partnership projects include: Old Town street lamp restorations, building illuminations, streetscape improvements, Christmas in Old Town, July 4th Children’s Parade, Father’s Day Car Show, Flags for Old Town and the nationally recognized Children’s Christmas Shop at Gum Drop Square. The Partnership for Warrenton is a publicly supported 501(c)(3) taxexempt foundation who are proud to be accredited as a Virginia Main Street Community. Having accumulated more than 25,000 volunteer hours since 1997, the Virginia Main Street September 2006

Program has recently recognized and awarded the Partnership and their devoted group of volunteers for their dedication to downtown revitalization. The Main Street program equates the unpaid volunteer hours to more than $456,000 in support to Warrenton’s Historic District. The Partnership is indebted to the support they receive from the community. Be it volunteers, the Town of Warrenton, Fauquier County, area businesses who have donated items for the silent auction or placed ads in the evening’s program, the fine restaurants, inns and caterers who provide food for the evening, or the financial investors, such as the event’s corporate sponsors, the Partnership recognizes that the organization’s success is a direct link to the contribution of the

entire community. Every year guests come away from the evening feeling inspired to protect the downtown for future generations. The Partnership for Warrenton’s Board of Trustees invite you to buy that dress you’ve had your eye on, pick out a special tie, invite your friends and bring your dancing shoes to the best party of the year.

http://spryder.casebook.org/warrenton/ This website provides an interesting look at the history of Warrenton through categorical pictures. The main page provides a brief overlook and history of Warrenton, and displays the categories on the left side of the page. The website welcomes visitors to leave their own information about certain pictures and some personal experiences. The images are separated into nine different categories. Advertising features pictures of old ads in business and real estate from Warrenton. One section features pictures of old buildings and landmarks such as Airlie, Mosby House, and the Court House. History sections include Civil War and John S. Mosby. There is also a section that features foxhunting and a section labeled Miscellaneous which features random photographs of pictures from Warrenton years ago. The final three sections are features on restaurants, people, and streets and locations. Inside each of these sections, there are a variety of different pictures for your viewing. Each picture has a little information included with it from people who know history about it. If there is no information included with it, there is an option for the viewer to add their own comments if they know any information about it. We contacted the website’s author, Stephen Ryder, and asked him why he started the site. “Well, I’m always interested in history and Warrenton seemed to have a fair amount of it.  I started collecting postcards and local history books and quickly realized just how much of this stuff was available (mostly on eBay).  I started collecting them together to show a bit of how Warrenton has changed over the years.  After the site grew a bit, locals started sending me items and it went from there.” Mr. Ryder did mention that he no longer lives in Warrenton and hasn’t updated it as often as he’d like. He’s kept it up for people to enjoy and post their comments and the personal stories they tell regarding many of the photos.
