Culpeper opinion

Curtain Calls: The “impossible dream” awakened

Prisons are never happy places. Dungeons are even worse – especially when you have the Spanish Inquisition breathing down your neck and your fellow inmates putting you on trial for, among other things, being a bad poet.

Curd Quips: Go ahead and play with your food

This time of year you are apt to hear all sorts of advice from accountants. Some you may like, others, not so much. Either way, an accountant’s advice can have dramatic impacts on your life and outlook. “Play with your food,” was not what I was expecting to hear from mine.

How do you grow mushrooms indoors?

This is one of the most common questions I get at the farmers market, and I think it is great when people are interested knowing where their food comes from. Learning about where food comes from is one of the best parts of the farmer’s market experience.

Your time is a precious gift

Culpeper is known for its caring community. It has a reputation for answering the call whether its donations to the food closet, help for fostering kitties, finding shelter for those in crisis and generally lending a helping hand whenever and wherever needed.

Glad we have our own MRAP

Another thing I learned in this training is that the State Police armored vehicle is not in Culpeper but is in Harrisonburg over an hour away or longer (armored vehicles do not go very fast) from Culpeper and by that time probably all the damage will have been done. So in my scenario I am glad we have our own rescue MRAP vehicle in order to keep our people safe.

The Marshall Plan: Annual shad run a rite of spring

Beneath the rushing water there is a flash of silver---instantly it races to the surface for a tail walk then two leaps before turning sideways to maximize its strength in the river current.

Curd Quips: A little cheese can go a long way

Say cheese and you may think of wedges on a plate to be served before (or after) a meal, but in-truth cheese belongs at every meal.

The Tasting Room: Family-centered Morais Vineyards and Winery

Just as he enjoys the farm winery with both of his “families,” he encourages visitors to do the same. He wants families to come out, enjoy the Virginia countryside, bring picnic baskets, sip his wines and spend a day on the farm.

Worth the wait

Plans are for expanding the records room, adding some air conditioning units and...drum roll here...providing permanent offices for the county’s Victim/Witness Program.
