SOFT OPENING? Al Esh’s popular Ole Country Store and Bakery south of Culpeper recently welcomed a sibling. He opened a second store in Fredericksburg two weeks ago. Intended for a “soft” opening, it is estimated that some 1,400 showed up causing checkout lines to wrap to the back of the store. Located along Route 3 in Spotsylvania, the new store is under the management of Jeff and Crystal Meir. Congrats Al and family!
ON TO NATIONALS. Students from Epiphany Catholic School ran into Cardinal Donald Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington, at the Washington Nationals “Faith Day” last Saturday.
