Roeder is seeking multiple special exemption permits from Fauquier County for his building which is in an area zoned Rural Agriculture (RA).

It turns out the saber rattling is nothing new. Just ask those gathered recently at for a version of the Battle of Middleburg. Merriam Webster defines it as:

Definition of saber-rattling:
overtly and often exaggeratedly threatening actions or statements (such as verbal threats or ostentatious displays of military power) that are meant to intimidate an enemy by suggesting possible use of force PS before you send a note to the editor about the spelling of the weapon, consider this: the British spell it as sabre. We prefer the American spelling for this purpose.
