Famous Unknown Sons of Fauquier


April 22, 20091, 2010 September

Dear Fauquier County Community, At the one-year anniversary of Cosby Insurance Group in Warrenton, I want to say thank you to the Fauquier business community for the welcoming spirit you have shown to my business. There is an old German saying that “all beginnings are difficult,” but instead, my experience in Warrenton has been a pleasure. So many talented and generous people have welcomed not only my business but also my family. In fact, next to marrying my wife, moving my family to Warrenton has proven to be one of the best decisions I have made! As a family we were committed to find that ideal place where we could integrate all aspects of our lives—business, Church, school, arts, clubs, and friends—and we found it in Warrenton. This community has given us the warmth of a small-town, opportunities of a big town, and most of all, a circle of vibrant new friends. We couldnot have prayed for a stronger, more caring environment in which to raise our three children. When I step out of my office onto the streets of Old Town Warrenton, I am struck by its history and charm, and I admire the generations that came before that had the vision to create such a beautiful place. It is an honor to be part of this town’s traditions, and we look forward to contributing to its future prosperity. Thank you for your business and friendship! Kind regards, Steven G. Cosby, MHSA President and CEO

From the Publisher

Last month marked the beginning of our sixth year of publishing The Warrenton Lifestyle Magazine, and Holly and I want to thank all of you, readers and advertisers, for making it a successful component of our community. Warrenton Lifestyle has continued to grow through the recession for two reasons: the variety of local content from area experts and the results that our advertisers receive. We believe their success is great because we do not promote the competition from Gainesville, Manassas or Culpeper against our beloved Warrenton and Fauquier County merchants. It is important to us that we contribute to Warrenton’s sense of commitment to our local organizations to make them stronger. Often, our offices become a hub of excitement because of the variety of projects that we get to help our printing clients bring to fruition. This summer, there is plenty of buzz surrounding the launch of another publication, The Haymarket Lifestyle Magazine. It is coming at the perfect time for the Haymarket community as they develop their own unique identity moving forward. Krysta Norman is leading the effort in directing the content for our two publications and Virginia Hendrix is managing Haymarket’s advertising. The Best of Warrenton Awards contest winner was Barbara Weldon; her name was randomly chosen out of over 2,300 ballots and she received $300 which we hope she is going to spend locally. This month we are beginning a new series on area churches and places of worship. The articles are written with each congregation so that their stories may be accurately told and their message delivered. The idea is to highlight the diversity of choices that we have here in Fauquier County while hearing directly from the leaders of each unique church program. We begin this month with St. James Episcopal Church on Culpeper Street in Warrenton. John Toler brings us a set of unique stories from our past, perfectly paired with an article revealing the celebration at the end of the month for Warrenton’s Bicentennial and Heritage Day. Dr. Robby Iadeluca writes about the need for a coming local Renaissance and how our collective brainstorming and execution of ideas can make it happen. Dr. Robby is celebrating his 90th birthday this month and, in honor of it, we are sending a donation to the Hospice of the Rapidan, his favorite organization. If you like his body of work over the past few years and would like to thank him, consider sending Hospice of the Rapidan a contribution as well. We couldn’t think of a better way to honor the gentleman. There is much more inside. Enjoy! Tony Tedeschi, Publisher

Real Life Warrenton

When going metric was standard by Vineeta Ribeiro

Is it just me, or were school supplies simpler a generation ago? Granted, in the seventies much of our high-tech gear hadn’t emerged on the scene. Post-its® and Wite-out® stick-pens were unknown; the singular innovation was invisible Scotch tape that didn’t pollute gift wrapping with strips of portable fog. For school, you just needed some basics: a big binder, loose-leaf paper, and some pencils. A cigar box was required so it could be spray-painted gold or silver after noodles were glued onto the lid for the all important Mother’s Day present, but that could be bought later in the year. Even the noodles weren’t available in today’s vast and befuddling variety: You chose between macaroni or the plain shells that resembled dead mollusks. There were no requirements for highlighters, dividers, or specialized 4” x 6” neon index cards on a spiral pack, lined on one side only, please. At most, we needed a wooden ruler with inches on one side and centimeters on the other, because any year now, the US was going to go totally metric. In so doing, we were finally going to unite with the world, save the world, or defeat the world. We weren’t sure which, but one had to be done, and this school crop of lamebrains, who had difficulty seeing the semblance in quarts and liters, would have to be trained. The metric system was so confounding, the new generation would have to be indoctrinated and converted. (Converted…wasn’t that a truly clever pun?)

Indoctrination required us to watch a Sesame-Street-esque show called “Metric Man.” Although we feigned maturity superior to its entertainment value, we secretly delighted in it. We were sophisticates belonging to the era of the folded notes passed with imaginative messages such as: “I like you. Do you like me? Check Yes or No.” The admirer usually had the courtesy to append a convenient box before the choices so the admiree could apply a checkmark in the appropriate place. In fourth and fifth grade, the only appropriate place was “NO!!!” This was also the era of intolerance; checking both Yes and No was disallowed, even though that is how we usually feel about the people we really love. Most of the times they are so likable, but the remainder of time, unfortunately, they are not. It had to be just one or the other back then, as when specifying one’s race. The options were limited to “White, Black, or Other.” I was always “other.” This piqued the kids in every school district I attended. Daily, they demanded to learn where my loyalties lay. Was I black or white? Surely, I was one or the other, and not Other, with a capital ‘O.’ When I told them I was neither; I was Indian, they declared defeat, but by way of retaliation, resorted to calling me “Pocahontas,” or “Poca,” for short. (This was before Disney enlightened us: Pocahontas was not merely a bright and compassionate 12-yearold daughter of a chief, but a voluptuous and Metric continued on Page 10

leggy brown maiden with flashing eyes and a mass of raven hair that moved as if were its own life form. If Disney had produced this fiction in the 70’s, I might have delighted in the appellation.) Classmates weren’t wise to multiple race categories, but they were smart enough to reserve the jeers of “Poca” to the playground only. Nowadays, for race, we can check as many as apply: White – European, White – Anglo Saxon, or White – Eastern European.” Not only do you identify yourself as Asian or Pacific Islander, you specify the island and which end of it. Remember “Metric Man?” Our weekly bolus of this show featured a sidekick with a rainbow propeller cap. For this, the TV had to be rolled in on a big black cart. The teacher exited the classroom to fetch this marvel of multimedia, and assigned the role of Benedict Arnold to the Pet. The Pet “took names” of all who dared to talk, squirm, laugh, pass notes, or even gas. Those whose names were recorded would be reckoned with upon the teacher’s return. This involved a rap on the knuckles with a ruler and/or a couple of “licks” on the hand with the teacher’s miniature leather strap. This was the usual punishment for students excepting the snooty ones whose parents had refused 10

to sign off on the corporal punishment permission slip. These unfortunates were left to hold up a book on either outstretched arm while standing in front of the class in a manner that, after about two or three minutes, looked almost as painful as the crucified form they resembled. I’m not sure what retribution the tattler, the teacher’s pet, would suffer later on the playground, but there was suffering, to be sure. That final school supply, then, was the ruler. Crucial for measurement, it was equally effective in meting out corporal punishment. A swat on the hand was standard in school back then, but it was rapidly becoming quite metric.

Fauquier History

There’s more to Fauquier County than Marshall and Mosby…

Three Less e r Known Fauquier S ons by John Toler


sked to name the most famous persons to have come from Fauquier County, most people would list Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court John Marshall (1758-1835), Confederate Partisan Ranger Col. John Singleton Mosby (18331916), and Lt. Presley Neville O’Bannon, USMC (1784-1850), the hero of “The Shores of Tripoli.” Three more famous sons have been largely overlooked, and should be added to this list. They all called Warrenton their home, and include an early jurist, an influential poet, and an outstanding artist.

Charles Lee, argued Marbury vs. Madison

Charles Lee (1757-1815) of “Leeton Forest,” near Warrenton, was a contemporary of Chief Justice Marshall, but his accomplishments while serving as U.S. Attorney General under the administrations of George Washington and John Adams from 1795-1801 cannot be overlooked. The son of Henry Lee and Lucy Grymes Lee, Charles was born at “Leesylvania,” the family plantation in Prince William County. The third of eleven

children, he was the brother of Gen. “Light Horse Harry” Lee, and U.S. Congressman Richard Bland Lee. After graduating from the College of New Jersey (later renamed Princeton University) in 1775, Lee read law in Philadelphia before returning to Virginia. In 1789 he married his cousin, Anne Lee (1770-1804), a daughter of Richard Henry Lee, who was instrumental in having Fauquier Courthouse located on his land after the county was formed in 1759. Charles and Anne Lee had six children, only two who lived to adulthood: Anne Lucinda Lee continued on page 14

The historic marker on Culpeper Street Extended celebrates Charles Lee’s accomplishments.

This fall, the Town of Warrenton and the Partnership for Warrenton Foundation will publish a history of the town, in celebration of Warrenton’s 200th anniversary. Following is an excerpt from the upcoming book. 12

Quality Doesn’t Cost, It Pays... “Because the Handyman Can”

continued from page 12 (1790-1845) and Alfred Lee (1799-1865). After Anne died, Charles married Margaret Scott (1783-1843), and the couple had three children, two who lived to adulthood: Elizabeth Gordon (18131897) and Robert Eden Lee (1810-1843), who was killed in a duel with another man in a dispute over real estate. Highly regarded for his jurisprudence, Lee was appointed U.S. Attorney General by Pres. George Washington after William Bradford died in office, and received Senate approval on Dec. 10, 1795. He continued to serve as Attorney General in Pres. John Adams cabinet, leaving that office when Adams’ term ended in February 1801. He lived in Alexandria, which was still part of the District of Columbia in those days, while in government service. After leaving office, Lee represented William Marbury and other Adams political appointees in the landmark case of Marbury v. Madison. The case dealt with unfulfilled political appointments made by Pres. Adams being held up by the Jefferson administration, which was represented by then-Secretary of State James Madison.

While the issue of political appointments was important at the time, it was the subsequent decision that the U.S. Supreme Court had “judicial review” over actions taken by the Legislative and Executive branches of the young federal government that was most important. By establishing this legal precedent – which is not detailed in the U.S. Constitution – the Judicial branch was given the authority it needed to effect the balance of power sought by the founding fathers. Noting Lee’s excellent arguments, Pres. Jefferson later offered to appoint him to the U. S. Supreme Court; however, Lee declined. Had he accepted, Fauquier County would have had the distinction of having two justices serving on the nation’s highest court. After serving as the port officer for the District of the Potomac and practicing law in Northern Virginia and the District of Columbia, Charles Lee moved back to “Leeton Forest,” where he lived until his death in 1815. He was buried first at St. Mary’s, the old Turkey Run Church, and later re-interred in the Warrenton Cemetery. Remarkably, the Charles Lee family line continued to make history in

Warrenton, as daughter Elizabeth Gordon Lee married the Rev. A. D. Pollock (1807-1890), pastor of the Warrenton Presbyterian Church. Their children continued the distinguished line. Daughter Elizabeth Hendricks Pollock (1843-1914) is remembered as the young heroine who rode through Union lines to warn Capt. John S. Mosby, then in hiding near Marshall, of an impending Yankee raid. After successfully eluding the Union sentries, she was nearly shot by a Confederate sentry before she could deliver the message. Also worth noting were her brothers, Thomas Gordon Pollock (1841-1864), who was killed in the charge of Pickett’s Division during the Battle of Gettysburg, and Charles Lee Pollock (1849-1888), who died at “Leeton Forest.” After surviving a number of smaller fires and being rebuilt, the original home at “Leeton Forest” was completely destroyed in a fire in 1921. Another house was built on the site of the original “Leeton Forest.” It is known today as the “Leeton Forest Farmhouse,” to distinguish it from the grander “Leeton Forest” built in 1929 that fronts directly on Lees Ridge Road.

James DeRuyter Blackwell, poet

Born March 18, 1828 at Oak Springs, the Blackwell ancestral home near Warrenton, James DeRuyter Blackwell was the ninth child of Joseph Blackwell and Elizabeth Edmonds Blackwell. Blackwell attended Randolph-Macon College and graduated from Dickinson College, earning a B.A. degree in 1848, and an M.A. degree in 1851. He later studied law, and was admitted to the bar in 1860,. He married his first cousin, Judith Emma Edmonds (1828-1913). With the outbreak of the Civil War, Blackwell joined the Confederate Army. He saw action in battles along the Rappahannock River, but due to poor eyesight, was honorably discharged in 1864. Long out-of-print, copies of James DeRuyter Blackwell’s poetry are once again available. 14

continued from page 14 After the War, he went back to his first passion – literature – and briefly taught the Classics at Bethel Military Academy near Warrenton until he was forced to leave due to ill health. It was Prof. Blackwell who encouraged the founder of the school, Maj. A. G. Smith, to adopt the military school approach to education. From that point on, “…he soon followed the strong current of his nature, and drifted into verse; the love of nature possessed him and he held communion with her visible forms, in that simple, sweet spirit which finds “Tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in storms, and good in everything,” wrote Annie G. Day in 1908. Blackwell published two collections of poems, the first in 1879 and the second in 1884. He became friends with Edward Virginius Valentine (1838-1930) of Richmond, a well known sculptor,. According to Miss Day, Blackwell’s poem,

“The Dying Thief” is believed to have inspired one of Valentine’s sculptures, while in turn, one of Valentine’s classical Greek sculptures inspired Blackwell to write his popular poem, “The Sleeping Ariadne.” Other poems recalled his wartime experiences, including “The Dead Drummer Boy,” “Forget Not the Dead,” and “War.” His poem, “The Unknown Grave” is believed to have inspired the Grave of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington Cemetery, and lines from his wartime remembrances are often read at Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day observances. Other works that drew the attention of the public was “The Opening of the Sixth Seal,” which first appeared in Frank Leslie’s Sunday Magazine, and later in his second of three volumes of poetry. Blackwell was content to live a quiet life of writing and reflection at Oak Springs, where he died on May 3, 1901. He was buried in the Edmonds-

Blackwell family cemetery nearby, where his is one of the few graves still marked by a legible stone. Survivors included his wife, who is buried in the Ivy Hill family cemetery, and their son, James DeRuyter Blackwell Jr. (1870-1929), a successful civil engineer. “Had he been of that aggressive, self-assertive disposition so essential to material prosperity, he would have enjoyed handsome remuneration for his labors while he lived,” wrote Miss Day. “But wrapped in the reveries of transported existence, he never responded to the call of Ambition, and his most coveted reward was the delightful dreams of a poet’s life.” On his tombstone reads an epitaph, written in verse by the poet who rests beneath it: ‘Tis not the whole of life to live, When ends the fleeting breath Another life the grave shall give That knoweth not of death. continued on page 18

Richard Norris Brooke, artist

If James DeRuyter Blackwell preferred living and working in the background, portrait artist Richard Norris Brooke, born in Warrenton on Oct. 27, 1847, was equally as comfortable with both his boyhood friends at home as he was with officials of the Corcoran Art Gallery, and the wider American art community. The son of Warrenton attorney James Vass Brooke (1824-1898) and Mary Norris Brooke (d. 1879), he was a teenager when the Civil War broke out. Too young to serve, he stayed home, but was spared neither the difficulties of the occupation or the horrors of war. Following the First Battle of Manassas, he was one of the young people who helped build and paint the hundreds of crosses for the Confederate soldiers who were buried in the

‘Dog Swap’ is considered one of Richard Norris Brooke’s finer paintings.

Upon returning from France, he painted his most well known canvas, “The Pastoral Visit,” which depicted the visit of an African-American preacher to the family home of one of his congregation. The characters he portrayed in the painting were based on actual people he knew in Warrenton. “The Pastoral Visit” was purchased by the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, D.C. where it was one of the gallery’s most popular exhibits for many years. Brooke’s explanation of his choice of subjects spoke volumes about the artist – and the man: “It must have struck many of you that the fine range of subject afforded by Negro domestic life has been strangely abandoned to works of flimsy treatment and vulgar exaggeration. That peculiar humor which is characteristic of the race, and varies with the individual, cannot be thus crudely conveyed,” wrote Brooke in 1881. “In entering this field, by the advice of many of my Artist friends, and with the equipment of a foreign training, I have had a deliberate purpose in view. It has been my aim while recognizing in proper measure the humorous features of my subject, to elevate it to that plane of sober and truthful treatment which, in French Art, has Richard Norris Brooke, A Pastoral Visit, 1881 (oil on canvas 47-3/4 x 65-3/4 in.- Corcoran dignified the Peasant subjects of Jules Breton, Gallery of Art, Washington, DC - Museum Purchase, Gallery Fund 81.8) and should characterize every work of Art. I am pleased to think, from the reception given by Warrenton Cemetery after they were brought to Warrenton the public to this effort. that my object, however realized has after the battle and died there. been felt, and appreciated,” he concluded.

—The Tyen Tackett Story—

Minutes to live. Seconds to act. A lifetime to enjoy. “There was vomit on the bed, and Tyen was turning blue.” That’s how Vickie Tackett described the scene when she went in to check on her napping son. She immediately called 911, and an emergency crew rushed him to Fauquier Hospital. When they arrived, a medical team was standing by to take action. The entire staff was focused on Tyen. Except for one nurse, who realized Vickie needed a little help as well. “She came up and gave me a hug,” Vickie recalls. “It meant the world to me.” Images revealed that a bolt from Tyen’s bed was lodged in his airway. And, with steady hands, a doctor used a pair of forceps to pull the object out. “You could hear everyone in the room cheering,” Vickie remembers with a smile. Today, the loud sounds you hear coming from the Tackett house are that of a young boy playing cars, reading books and, well, just being a kid.

Still connected to Warrenton, in 1882 Brooke painted the flag presented to the Warrenton Rifles when they left for Yorktown to participate in the Centennial Celebration of the British defeat that ended the Revolutionary War. He was also present on Courthouse Square on the night of Nov. 15, 1889, when Gen. Billy Mahone was burned in effigy following his defeat by Fitzhugh Lee in the state governor’s race. The fire spread to birds’ nests on top of the pillars and eaves of the courthouse, and the courthouse was again doomed. Brooke,

John Carter and Eppa Hunton Jr. entered the burning building, and removed the portrait of John Marshall from its frame and brought it to safety – the second time the portrait had been saved from a burning Fauquier County Courthouse. Known as a devout Christian, Brooke led ecumenical mission meetings held at the courthouse on Sundays, and “… attendants enjoyed both his exhilaration to holier life, and the instrumental and vocal music,” wrote Lee Moffett in “The Diary of Courthouse Square.” Focusing his work in Warrenton, in 1899 Brooke arranged to rent an unused room in the Town Hall for an art gallery for $2 a month, with the provision that he not put any nail holes in the walls. Shortly afterward, he built a summer studio in Warrenton.

For the next 20 years, Brooke enjoyed working in his studio, traveling and teaching. He died on April 25, 1920, and is buried in the Warrenton Cemetery, next to his parents and younger sister, Annie Amelia Brooke (1858-1876). “Richard Norris Brooke was one who painted for the sheer love of expression, and found endless delight in the beauty of nature,” according to a commemorative article appearing in the Washington Star on May 2, 1920. “He was an excellent and ardent teacher, and was regarded as a boon companion and much beloved by his pupils at the Corcoran Gallery, and earlier at the Art Students league, as well as his summer classes. He will not only be mourned, but missed; his passing leaves a gap in the ranks which will be hard to fill.”

The Partnership for Warrenton – September Update

An Evening Under The Stars By Jennifer Heyns


t’s a Warrenton tradition spanning more than two decades and is considered one of the area’s most successful celebrations. This year The Partnership for Warrenton Foundation will be hosting their 21st annual Evening Under the Stars, on September 18 from 8 p.m. to midnight. Much like in years past, this year’s event will sprawl down Main Street and be lined with numerous area restaurants offering a taste of their delectable menu items. Approximately two dozen restaurants normally participate and many of them put on quite a show. Main Street will be closed to traffic for the entire evening and no matter how cloudy or clear the night guests will find themselves enjoying a starlit gala. A canopy of lights will hover over the event adding to the elegance and magic of the evening. Evening Under the Stars is an eventful soiree where the atmosphere and bountiful food are as festive as the live entertainment. Daryl Davis will again entertain guests with his lively and entertaining musical performance. Davis, who also happens to be a talented writer, actor and speaker, performs a vibrant array of music including the blues, boogie woogie, rock and roll and country. The event also includes a live auction and a wine and beer cash bar. Although Evening Under the Stars was designed as a family-friendly event, this year younger children will find a unique experience just for them.

As a special treat The Partnership for Warrenton is coordinating a children’s event separate from Evening Under the Stars in conjunction with Tagaloo, a Warrenton youth entertainment company that also offers unique and creative classes. The Partnership’s new Executive Director, Jennifer Heyns, who, as a parent, saw a need for providing more age-appropriate entertainment for young children. By having a children’s event in close proximity to and simultaneously with An Evening Under the Stars, parents will be able to enjoy the evening knowing their children are nearby, safe and completely entertained while they do the same. Evening Under the Stars is The Partnership’s largest fundraising event. In previous years The Partnership has sought corporate and private sponsorship in order to help fund the event and sustain the organization throughout the coming year. This year, however, they have started a new program whereby individuals and businesses can become members of The Partnership at various levels. “Partners” of The Partnership receive advertising in each of the organization’s events throughout the year as well as a reserved table for eight and a fullpage program ad at An Evening Under the Stars. “Supporters” receive advertising benefits for a all Partnership events throughout the year and “Friends” receive a thank you packet in return for their annual membership donation.

Event tickets are on sale now at PartnershipforWarrenton.org or The Partnership office at 7 Hotel Street. For more information please visit our web site or call Jennifer Heyns at 540-349-8606.

Aging Together

Conversations on Aging Together This year Aging Together celebrates the beginning of its seventh year as a community partnership. Over the past six years, a great deal has happened to help make Fauquier County a strong place in which all citizens can anticipate growing older in good health and with a rich quality of life. At the very first Community Conversation on Aging, we asked people why Fauquier is a good place to grow old. People responded enthusiastically about its beautiful environment, its cultural opportunities, its sensible and professional local government. The consensus among those in attendance was that despite its considerable geographic size, Fauquier has a sense of community, a small town mentality with traditional values, and a strong church community. People said they felt safe and connected to a great life. We also asked people about the challenges they face growing older in Fauquier. People expressed concern about isolation and depression in their elder years and worried about the impact of population growth on the area. Not surprisingly, ensuring adequate transportation, housing, and services for seniors were mentioned as potential problems. People were also concerned about lack of access to information and how to navigate the confusing network of services. Many were fearful of having to live in nursing homes and wanted to be able to maintain their independence at home and stay connected to younger generations.

In this they are like most Americans, who want to age in place, remaining in the same communities where they have lived for a long time. Contrary to popular belief, only a small minority of older Americans moves to warmer climates upon retirement. Fewer than 5% of the 65 and over population live in nursing homes. At this year’s Community Conversation, we focused on the fact that the 60-plus population is expected to more than double in Fauquier within the next 10 years. This change in the county’s demographics will impact all aspects of the community, said Aging Together Chairperson Sallie Morgan. “But it doesn’t have to mean only burden. Older citizens bring a wealth of resources to the county and the skills of the aging Boomer population add even more opportunity,” she noted. Board of Supervisors Chairman Terry Nyhous, who attended the Conversation, concurred. “There are many people moving into or retiring in the county

Conversation. Some are family members caring for older relatives. Others are professional aging services providers, such as the three sponsors of the event – Hospice of the Rapidan, MediHome Health and Hospice, and Home Instead Senior Care. Others work for businesses that provide services of interest to the growing senior population. Among them were Sarah Atkins, a financial advisor for Edward Jones, and Marie Washington, an attorney with the office of Mark B. Williams. Both Ms. Atkins and Ms. Washington are members of the Greater Warrenton Chamber of Commerce Senior Networking Committee, which was formed specifically to address the business needs of this growing market. This spring, when Aging Together asked the community to identify the most important goal our partnership should focus on, the answer was no surprise. Unanimously, it was expanding and enhancing services for older adults and their families. Not far behind was recognizing and supporting invaluable family caregivers. Our county team members now sponsor annual caregiver training programs to teach skills ranging from hands-on care to understanding legal issues and benefit resources. As one member of Aging Together’s Communications Advisory Committee, herself a family caregiver, said, “We’ve got to learn to put the joy in caregiving.” Helping boost healthy lifestyles for

Aging continued from page 26 people of all ages was important to seniors throughout the region. Health Department Director Dr. Dana Bradshaw summed up this last priority when he said, “If seniors are aware of healthy lifestyles, it trickles down to others in the family and community.” Rounding out Fauquier citizens’ priorities for creating a community that will support us all as we grow older was the need to provide information that is easy to access and understand. A member of Fauquier’s Parks and Recreation Department said, “It’s important to get information out to citizens so they can take advantage of the resources that are there. I hate to think that people won’t know about the services we offer.” We’ve got room for improvement in this area. Probably we’re all going to have to get more comfortable with computers and other types of information technology, too. Fauquier is ahead of the curve in planning for the future “age wave”.

Aging Together Fauquier Team Leader Sandra Maskas leads a discussion group Aging continued from page 28 defined as those that have affordable and varied housing options to support different sized families. They are also places where people have a variety of transportation options to get to where they want or need to go. These communities offer supportive services, healthy living options, and education and cultural opportunities. Together, these facilitate personal independence and the engagement of residents in civic and social life. Achieving this can mean changes as practical as providing road signs more visible to older drivers, adjusting the timing at pedestrian crossings to accommodate older adults, instituting property tax relief programs for older homeowners, supporting farmers’ markets, or developing volunteer driver programs. These changes, as well as others that assist older adults aging in place, actually benefit everyone in the community, regardless of age. In thinking about the practices that make a livable community, it’s obvious that Fauquier has taken some good preliminary steps. It can seem daunting, trying to prepare an entire community for such a significant change in the older 30

population. For example, simply ensuring accessible transportation is a challenge. Fauquier Aging Together members noted that even if we cannot expand VRT’s transportation options right now, we can work to assure that the current routes are still going to and from the places in town people really need to get to, like physician’s offices and shopping. Many other ideas were generated at the Conversation. Sophia Cameron of the Villa at Suffield Meadows suggested a volunteer listserv on which people could post their volunteer interests and organizations could post their volunteer needs. Bill Werre, a volunteer with many local community groups, said he’d like to see a Senior Softball League in the area. And when ideas really started building on each other, there was a call for a concierge service for older adults who could afford to pay for help but need a central clearing house through which to safely find it. These are all small steps that would each make an impact on a number of people’s lives. Over time, they help build the future we envision, one with consistent and reliable quality of life, scenic beauty, neighbors helping neighbors, and a place and role for

every individual. Dan Buettner is a researcher who travels the world visiting communities that have a high percentage of people over 90. Within those communities he looks for “blue zones” in which people who live that long are remarkably free of the diseases, ailments, sadness and other concerns that so many older people have in this country. These people are achieving through diet, exercise and social connections such a great degree of health that they don’t need the medical services that so many people in America rely on as they age. One of these blue zones is in Loma Linda, California. You might wonder how a community 60 miles outside of Los Angeles can be a place where people live long and very healthy lives. As it turns out, Loma Linda is place where there is a large concentration of 7th Day Adventists. A good portion of the community shares common spiritual beliefs and a vegetarian diet. In Loma Linda, people’s shared beliefs and lifestyles influence how their community is organized, how their government is structured, and what services it provides. For example, because they observe the Sabbath on Saturday, it is one of the only places in the United States where you can get your mail on Sunday instead. Their institutions adjust to what community members say are important to them. At Aging Together, we also believe that shared voices can positively impact the growth of our communities. This fall we publish the new strategic plan for the partnership and will share it with the community. In the meantime, work continues to nurture the blue zone right here in Fauquier. Please join us. The Fauquier Senior Care Network of Aging Together meets the fourth Thursday of every month at 1:00 p.m. at Fauquier Hospital. Aging Together is a community partnership taking action now to improve quality of life for the growing population of older adults.

The Builder


Tom L. of Warrenton asks, “I read in a building magazine there are new regulations concerning contractors and lead paint, is this true?”


Tim Burch Jr., CR President, Burch Builders Group, Old Town Warrenton, VA. Past President/ Chairman, National Association of the Remodeling Industry, Metro DC. Project Manager, Extreme Makeover Home Edition, ABC Television

Ask the Builder/ Designer is a bi-monthly feature. Please submit your home owner questions to info@ warrentonlifestyle.com or info@burchbuildersgroup. com and stayed tuned for answers in our next column.

Tom, the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) has been making waves on this issue for years. You are correct; it is now law that any work being done on a home built prior to 1978 must be tested for lead paint by your contractor. This rule went into full effect on any April 22, 2010. There has been some confusion in the industry on how this rule is going to be enforced as well as some extensions on the time period in which renovation contractors need to get certified, but there is no doubt that this is now law. The rule states: Renovation or repairs that disturb the following: 6 sq. ft. or more in an interior surface, or 20 sq. ft. or more on an exterior surface, on homes built prior to 1978 must be tested. If lead paint is found by testing (by a certified RRP Contractor), the contractor must clean the area in conjunction with the Cleaning Verification Procedure, as outlined by the EPA. The question is often asked why lead was used in paints and varnishes in the first place. Lead was added to these products because it lengthened the color and durability as well as resisted mold and mildew. Extensive testing was conducted on lead and it was found to be hazardous to our health in many ways, especially for children and pregnant women. In 1978, the Consumer Products Safety Commission banned the sale of lead-based paint for residential use. As a contractor we were required to take an all day training course to become a Certified Renovator for Lead Paint. This course included classroom time as well as actual hands on lead verification and cleaning procedures. If your home was built prior to 1978, your contractor is not only required to have taken this course and pass the exam, but also give to you an EPA , Renovate Right Pamphlet before any work is begun. As the homeowner you are also to be given the test results and data by your contractor after you pay your final bill. The statistics on whether your home contains lead are not are the following: Homes built between 1960-1978: have a 24% chance of containing lead. Homes built between 1940-1960: have a 69% chance of containing lead. Home built before 1940: have a 87% chance of containing lead. So to all the homeowners out there please remember, if your home was built prior to 1978 and you are having work done that involves 6 sq. ft. or more on the interior, 20 sq. ft. or more on the exterior, your contractor must be RRP Lead Certified. It’s your right to ask to see their EPA Certificate.

Hope this helps and answers your questions Tom.

Community Working Together

A Local Renaissance Is in Order by Robert B. Iadeluca, Ph.D.

Rule #2: No one is allowed to say it won’t work. usually include fun. Time for play is reserved for vacations or occasional long weekends. The ability to imagine, in other words “to think outside the box”, rusts from disuse. The brain is an organ and, like all organs, it’s a case of use it or lose it.

When I was of preschool age 85 years ago there were no electronic toys. There were no televisions, no computers, no cell phones, and no video games. I banged on some pans from the kitchen and pretended they were drums. I held a stick to my mouth and pretended it was a flute. I put cardboard boxes together and pretended it was a house. I lived in a land of “pretend”, or, to put it another way, I acted “as if.” I created drums, flutes, and houses. Such creativity comes easily to young children. They are not inflicted with the real world of formal education where they are required to face facts such as two plus two equaling four and having to sit without squirming while a teacher insists that pans are only cooking utensils. Somewhere along the line, adults drive imagination out of children. A fact is a fact. The moon is not made of green cheese. There are no fairies. And, ever so gradually, the ability to create diminishes, often to the point of near destruction. That period of life when joy and innocence rein completely fades away. Adults are asked to use only that part of their mind which has been trained to approach problems. They see themselves as part of the business world, and “doing business” does not 40

“Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world.” — Albert Einstein

This is disastrous. Fortunately most adults have memories of the techniques used to transform boxes into houses and pans into drums. Once we learn how to ride a bicycle, we can accomplish this in adulthood even though years may have passed since we hopped on the seat. If we learned a language other than English during early childhood, it is there for life whether regularly used or not. So it is with the ability to create. During this current period of the Great Recession, the business world cries out for such an ability to be used for the benefit of the community. Seventy years ago, Alex Osborn, president of an advertising agency, created what is now known as brainstorming. It is an exercise with two simple rules: after having determined a problem to be solved, the group calls out possible solutions following Rule No. One (the sky’s the limit) and Rule No. Two (no one is allowed to say it won’t work.) Go back to your early childhood where anything was possible. Tooth fairies did put money under your Renaissance continued on page 42 Warrenton Lifestyle

Renaissance continued from page 40 pillow. And you accepted this until you were corrupted by facts. In brainstorming, adults bring forth their innate ability to imagine and come up with possible solutions. Ideas flow and no one in the group tells them they won’t work. Last month, in 30 minutes, approximately two dozen members of a Chamber of Commerce came up with 54 suggestions to help the local business community succeed and prosper. Examples of creativity abound in our daily lives, such as using a book or other article for a purpose different from the intended one (e.g. a door stop). Playing a role on stage with the Fauquier Community Theatre is creativity at its fullest. At the end of World War II, Grumman Aircraft, which manufactured fighters for the Navy, suddenly found itself with a huge inventory of aluminum. Someone at Grumman suggested they 42

Creative new ideas can become viable We located a huge rock that was almost products or services. Einstein said, the exact shape of an arrowhead. This “Knowledge is limited.

This past month, local discarded. citizens gathered to watch the movie “ET” and allowed themselves to believe that an extra terrestrial had landed on Dr. Iadeluca holds earth and befriended a little boy. When in the creative mood, anything is possible. At the age of 52, unemployed at the start of the 1972 recession, I considered furthering my education rather than looking for a job.

Warrenton History

Town of Warrenton Bicentennial Celebration Highlights the 6th Annual Warrenton-Fauquier Heritage Day Saturday, September 25, 2010 On Saturday, September 25, 2010, the public is invited to celebrate Warrenton’s Bicentennial during the annual Warrenton-Fauquier Heritage Day with a variety of free events in Old Town Warrenton to commemorate 200 years of unique Warrenton history, 251 years of extraordinary Fauquier heritage and to honor our national designation as a “Preserve America Community.” Main Street observances from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. will feature living historians, special programs, period entertainment, a Children’s Corner, and an Author’s Area. The Warrenton Footsteps Living History Parade and Grand Review, highlighting over two centuries of our very significant local heritage, will begin at 10:00 a.m., followed by the official Town of Warrenton’s Celebration program. Living history displays, reenactments, tours, and activities will be held at the Old Courthouse, Courthouse Square, the Old Jail Museum, Liberty Heritage Museum, Warrenton Baptist Church and First Baptist Church. Highlighting the living history displays throughout the day in Courthouse Square will be an informative and interesting lineup of historians giving speeches that will reflect Warrenton’s vast and unique history. During the time of the Revolution, Warrenton’s origin was a settlement of Falmouth-Winchester and AlexandriaCulpeper roads where the Red Post trading center was established. By 1790 the first courthouse was built, a jail erected and an academy established.

Heritage Day continued from page 46 corporated in January of 1810, named in honor of Major General Joseph Warren, hero of the Battle of Bunker Hill. (For more Warrenton history, please visit http://www.warrentonva.gov/General/ History.aspx) With the approaching Sesquicentennial of the War Between the States, additional plans are underway for the event to provide a glimpse of Warrenton in the 1860s. Company H, 4th Virginia Cavalry, “The Black Horse Troop,” also known

as the Black Horse Cavalry, is planning a cavalry demonstration including Colonel Mosby, Governor “Extra” Billy Smith, General Ewell, General Robert E. Lee and General Stonewall Jackson. In addition, the Eagles Nest Trading Post Group will provide a very special performance of Native American dance, storytelling, exhibition of their crafts and authentic tipi set-up, signed by many Tribal Chiefs. The Town of Warrenton’s Celebration program will include the identification of some of the most historic town buildings, a timeline of Warrenton’s most notable

events and a 2010 Time Capsule. Warrenton citizens are encouraged to submit heartfelt greetings and prayers to future Warrentonians who will unearth the Bicentennial Celebration Time Capsule a century from now, during the Warrenton Tercentennial Celebration. Contact the Town of Warrenton for instructions. The Warrenton-Fauquier Heritage Day committee encourages all citizens to come enjoy this unique and educational day of community and family-friendly living history. Admission is free to this rain or shine event.

The History of the Cooks in Deep Water Cookbook A cookbook was created through friendship, laughter and fun in the Warrenton Aquatics Recreational Facility (WARF) Deep Water Aerobics class. Many swimmers have been attending water aerobics classes together for many years and we have enjoyed not only the exercise and the instructors, but also the dynamics of the group. Over the years, we have shared joys, sorrows, and recipes! As we celebrated birthdays and holidays, we often found ourselves in one of our homes, enjoying a variety of great home-prepared foods. In the winter of 2008 during a potluck, an idea was born to bring together all these fabulous recipes and create a cookbook. The process began by testing the recipes among ourselves, collecting the favorites, proofreading and indexing the recipes. Often at water aerobics session a new idea emerged, including the publisher, the photos, the sketches, the front cover and finally, the name of the cookbook, Cooks In Deep Water. 46

After two years we were almost ready to go to press, we became aware of requests for donations for the Fun for All Playground, a Claude Moore Design Playground where everyone, with or without disabilities, can come and enjoy the day. The playground is to be built next to the WARF. The group unanimously decided that proceeds from the cookbook sales would be donated to this great community effort. On June 25, 2010, during our Book Launching Event, we unveiled the cookbooks to members of the deep water aerobics class, committee members of the Fun for All Playground, and WARF employees.

The cookbook is being sold at various events and through local vendors for $10.00. Checks can be made to Betsy Myers or email us at warrentonaquabelles@gmail.com for more information. Warrenton Lifestyle

Fauquier Worships

Saint James Episcopal Church This is the first in a series of articles about local churches and houses of worship. The purpose is to introduce you to the distinct features of each congregation, their philosophy and atmosphere. We believe that churches, temples, synagogues, etc are some of our best community centers. As you read about them each month we hope you will find one that interests you and your family. This month, Bonnie Zacherle looks at St. James Episcopal Church in Warrenton.

Radical is an unconventional word used rarely in the church, but not at Saint James Episcopal Church where Rector Christian Pierce encourages “Radical Hospitality.” Created by Father Chris it has become a widespread theme among the parish. Leading this movement Father Chris and Assistant Rector, Eric Thompson have been graciously welcoming to all, both new and familiar. The two openly greet attendees every Sunday morning from the pulpit and walk the aisles shaking hands. “Radical Hospitality” is the main ingredient in Saint James Sunday Café Program. The Café Program is a Sunday morning breakfast offered in the parish hall in between the 8:00am service and the 10:15am service. The initial intention of the program was to introduce the attendees of one service to another in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. Churchgoers who sometimes had no knowledge of one another were able to meet finally at the Café. “I realized neighbors of mine attended our early service, only when I met them


over eggs and waffles at the Café,” exclaimed Bonnie Zacherle, the Director of Communications at Saint James’. The food and fellowship has allowed the parish to become more acquainted with one another, as well as a way to welcome newcomers in a more informal setting. “Radical Hospitality” and the leadership of Saint James’ successfully united the parish, creating a friendly place to worship with a rich history. In 1853, just 43 years after the town was officially named Warrenton, a new brick church was consecrated on Culpeper Street. Saint James’ was designed by renowned New York architect James Renwick whose original design featured Gothic Revival style complete with inviting red doors. In 1910, the church suffered a devastating fire that destroyed the majority of the building. By 1912 the church had been rebuilt as an English parish church making it a stucco and brick building. The interior remained reminiscent of its gothic origins with salvaged furnishings from the fire: St. James continued on page 54 Warrenton Lifestyle

St. James continued from page 52 2 windows, the Brass Pulpit and the Communion Rail. Updated since 1912, it is now rich with historical artifacts, multiple tones of wood, brass fixtures, and exquisite stained glass windows. The church, though majestic and inviting, would be lifeless without its dedicated leadership and giving fellowship. Saint James is blessed to have people who have a true sense of giving, that of themselves and of their talents. Passionate about “radical hospitality” and unifying the church, Father Chris is also focused on volunteering. He started a nation-wide outreach program, Youth Missions Organization (YMO), that leads young people in prayer and mission trips to help those less fortunate. For the first time this year, Saint James’ hosted a team from South Carolina to complete outreach projects right in Warrenton. With his quick wit and sense of fun, Father Eric has inspired the youngest members in Chapel Services, Children’s Church and the Middle School Youth Group. Collectively their members have been involved with organizations like People Helping People, The Boys and Girls Club, Literacy Volunteers, Habitat for Humanity, The Fauquier Free Clinic, Fauquier SPCA, Hospice, Fauquier Food Banks, Warrenton Historical Society, Hospital Auxiliary, and the Warrenton Antiquarians. The parish organized its own outreach program to support schoolchildren in Soroti, Uganda. The church also raised money needed to dig two wells for citizens of Soroti, providing them with critically needed drinking water. The Borgstroms (a husband and wife team), formed a food bank called “Food for Friends,” that collects bags of food throughout the month to later be distributed to various food banks in the community. Organist and Music Director, Richard Ford plays wonderfully on a beautiful old organ. He and the several church choirs make wonderful music every week that adds greatly to the inspirational experience of the church service. Michelle Place, the Children’s Programming Coordinator, has the enthusiasm and heart necessary to keep up with the young participants. Julie Pierce, the wife of the Rector has given in a variety of areas such as teaching, directing the Junior Choir, photographing for the church and schools media outlets, and she is the creative inspiration for fun youth projects. With so many people offering their special talents, Saint James is a great place for children to grow up in a nurturing environment. Saint James’ has been welcoming young students for almost 30 years into its friendly school. Having an excellent reputation for introducing students into the school system, St. James continued on page 56

St. James continued from page 54 Saint James’ has recently expanded and now offers Kindergarten and First Grade classes. The church and the school have a new, closer relationship since the arrival of Father Chris, who believes the school is the greatest outreach to the community. They provide the youth with the spiritual structure of faith by teaching them in a loving church setting. Accompanying Father Chris, the school’s new Director, Stacy Irvin, shares the same vision and has been working hard to implement it. Her

friendly face and warm demeanor invite the children to the love and security the school offers. The school and the church have bonded over the development of the “Discovery Garden.” When the current playground for the school could not handle the increasing enrollment, Father Chris generously gave up his backyard to increase the area for the students while adding elements for the entire congregation to enjoy. The “Discovery Garden” will provide new space for the students, including a landscaped

garden with raised beds to grow plants and vegetables for the Café and outdoor worship space. This project will act as a living classroom for the students. “Parishioners, parents and the students are so excited about this project that they have volunteered their time, talent and materials toward its success,” Zacherle said. It is their hope that this space will prove to be an attractive addition to the whole community. Jim Moore (lft) and Emma Carter are at the head of the line for breakfast.

St. James continued from page 56 Episcopalians are part of a larger family, representing a wide range of beliefs and practices. Churches can be referred to as “high church”, filled with splendor and ritual, or “low church” with simplified ceremony and decor. All of them share the Book of Common Prayer, having several ancient and modern liturgies from which to choose. “I consider Saint James’ to be a “middle of the road church.” At Saint James’, we offer a more traditional Holy Eucharist Rite I service at 8:00am. This service is without music, therefore shorter. At the

10:15am service, we are blessed to have wonderful music to accompany the newer Rite II. Both have inspiring sermons from our ministers who preach to the Gospel of Jesus,” explained Zacherle. A variety of people are represented in the parish with different beliefs and opinions regarding their faith. Saint James’ respects those of opposing opinions and is open to listening to varying points of view. The church encourages its followers to think openly, the Episcopal Church having been founded with the three principles of Scripture, Tradition and Reason. Saint James’, with all its tradition and ritual, is a comfort.

“We Christians have no veil over our faces; we can be mirrors that brightly reflect the glory of the Lord. And as the Spirit of the Lord works within us, we become more and more like him.”(II Corinthians 3:18 TLB) As I look over Saint James’ congregation, I see that love reflected in the faces of those people; I see the face of God looking back at me. Saint James’ has been with me through many hard times. It has given me solace in times of mourning and celebrated with me in times of joy. I consider the members to be my family. I give thanks to God for the presence of Saint James in my life. I call it home!” Zacherle excitedly stated.

What’s New



It has been a long hot summer, school has started and we are hoping to feel the crisp cool weather of fall very soon. I hope that back to school shopping for supplies and clothes will help to improve the outlook of all businesses, but especially those here in Fauquier County.

They have a full selection of trailers and all the parts and accessories to go with them.

341-8840 YOU COMPLETE ME We need one another. I know you feel it too. For I can never imagine Life here, without you. I’ve opened up my heart. In return you gave to me, A life full of love, And a world of security. I look at you and realize My heart you have won. For you have completed me, Two souls united as one.

HAND PRINTS Sometimes it’s discouraging Having hand prints everywhere. But someday it’ll be hard to recall When they are no longer there. So hold my little hands And walk along beside me. Let’s enjoy the moments. Childhood goes by quickly. Soon I’ll be grown up, Though forever your baby I’ll be. One day when you look into my eyes A reflection of you, you’ll see.

We have lost some businesses again this month, Town N Country Restaurant, which has been a fixture in New Baltimore for many years, has gone out of business. Most everyone in the county has stopped into Town N Country at some point and they will be sorely missed, but we wish the Bannourah’s much luck in their future endeavors. The Citi Financial office in Warrenton has closed and been consolidated with their Manassas office and by the time this goes to print, Real Woods & Home Furnishings plans to have finished their going out of business sale and closed the doors. We have a few other businesses making changes for the better. Grady Morris has moved Overcoming Obstacles Landscaping to a larger location on Beach Road. They can help with all the outside jobs you need to catch up on, like your lawn, landscape, gutters, snow removal and everything in between. Falcon Auto Wash was purchased by new owners in April and they have changed a few things, including the name. It is now Dr. Car Wash and it has been scrubbed, painted and spruced up in many ways. They have even gone back to doing a few things that had disappeared in recent years. My last visit was enjoyable and they did a great job on my car. Dok Klaus Computer Care is always ready to help with your computer problems and is now making it even easier by extending their hours to help those of us with busy schedules. They are now open from 8am to 7pm, Monday through Friday and 9am to 5pm on Saturday. What a great new improvement.
