I started writing this occasional column more than a decade ago while I planned my own wedding party, occurring in laid-back fashion on a mild August evening at an old inn in the mountains. All my friends and family were there, including several who have since passed on, and are dearly missed.
Last week our Lead Culpeper participants were immersed in education.
Thank you to the Culpeper Chamber of Commerce for organizing a ribbon cutting for the new state of the art veterinary hospital at Clevengers Corner Veterinary Care earlier this week.
A non-profit organization, Omega offers comfortable couches, books, job resources, a mailing address, toiletries, warm showers, clean towels, food items, cooking utensils, baby formula, diapers, clothing, backpacks, counseling, and more to those who are hurting right here—right here in Culpeper.
Parking straight ahead! How many times have you seen a road sign, felt the anticipation of finally ending up at your destination spot, and then once you’ve arrived, wished you could recapture the journey? Or, maybe even scripted the chapters in a different manner?
As I look around and observe the decline in our society, I have come to realize that there is a degree of rebellion against any form of authority.
I absolutely treasure the autumn season. The crisp, cool air, the changing color of the landscape and football are heralded in with the turn of the calendar to September. It also signals the beginning of many community events.
Q: Why does it seem some veterinary offices are more expensive than others?

OUR HISTORY The Will farm in Mt. Crawford had its beginning when Thomas J. Will purchased the land at auction in December 1924. He then moved his family from Timberville, VA that winter and began farming in the spring. For the next 27 years he operated it as a general livestock and crop farm, raising cattle, growing hay and corn with wheat being his cash crop. In 1952 his grandsons, Melvin Will, Jr. and James L. Will, purchased the farm from him. They built a dairy farm and began milking cows, selling their milk to the local co-op, Valley of Virginia Milk Producers Cooperative Associate, better known as their trademark name Shenandoah’s Pride. In 1979 Melvin Will suffered a severe stroke and his sons Kenneth and Frank assumed the day to day operation of the farm while caring for their father and their mother who was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1970. Will Brothers continued on as a dairy farm and purchased a second farm in 1989. Kenneth, his wife, Karen, and three children moved to the second farm in 1990 and assumed the daily operations there, while Frank continued to live and work on the original farm. Kenneth’s children, Daniel, Jeremy, and Nancy grew up working on the farm and now their own families have become a part of the farm living there while working to keep it for the next generation. These include Jeremy’s wife, Lauren and their two children, Ariel and Edward, Nancy’s husband Isaac Hill, and Frank’s wife, Cheryl. Melvin’s death in 1997 left Kenneth and Frank with a very large estate tax which severely depleted their cash reserves. In 2009 a disastrous depression in the price of milk led them to the realization that if they were to continue farming significant changes would have to occur. After more than two years of discussion and meetings, research, and study it was decided that adding value by processing and selling our own milk was the best option. With no other dairy processing and bottling milk in the area, we want to share with the people of the Shenandoah Valley fresh milk produced by a family that has been in the community for generations. We want to give our neighbors and friends milk from their own community, where they can see the happy cows munching on fresh green, grass and know they have a quality product they too can be proud of when they take a drink. At that point permits were applied for and bids taken for buildings and equipment. A machine shed and calf barn were constructed in the winter of 2012 to replaces one which had to be removed. Ground was broken in 2012 for the milk processing plant itself and we opened for business on Saturday, May 11, 2013. We hope you become a part of our family and allow us into yours. http://www.statesville.com/finditlocal/great-usa-dog-treats/business_4000046347.html Buy 10 Gallons of Milk and Get 1 Gallon FREE!
