By Sue GoldenFrederick County ReportTe calls and emails started lastuesday. Lois Cheron was busy at the Wayside Inn but when sherealized she had missed a coupleo calls rom the Middletownown Hall she dropped every-thing to race to the phone. Shewas shocked when she was askedi she wanted to sponsor a can-non or the reenactment o thebattle o cedar creek in a coupleo weeks. “No,” she said. “Are yougoing to make calls asking i any-one wants to come to dinner atthe Wayside Inn tonight?”Over in Stephens City, MarieWible was checking her emailat Artistically Framed. She won-dered aloud why she was gettingan email rom the Middletowngovernment. Te email requestedthat Artistically Framed sponsora cannon or the reenactment.Te email was signed “MicheleFishel, Deputy Clerk, own o Middletown.”Ms. Fishel started work lastMonday as a part-time employee.She makes approximately $10,000per year. She was hired to helpin the oce and work on largerprojects like updating the towncode. So why was she spendingher work day trying to sell can-nons or the Cedar Creek Battle-eld Foundation, a nonprot or-ganization south o Middletown?According to Mayor CharlesH. Harbaugh, IV who sits on theCCBF board o directors, Ms.Fishel was making the contactsat his request. “We need to getalong with our neighbors. Te re-enactment only has 2,000 peoplesigned up this year to reenactwhen usually 4,000 people signup. Tey need cannon sponsorsso I took hal o the list and gavethe other hal to Michele.” Askedwhy a town employee was spend-ing time raising unds or CCBF,Mayor Harbaugh responded thatthe reenactment brought a lot o business to town. He cited theItalian ouch and the BattleeldMarket (which is not in Middle-town) as two businesses that willdo a lot o business that week-end. He also thought the Super 8might get additional business.I was curious whether therewas an increase in business dur-ing the reenactment week-endand whether business ownersthought it was a good idea tohave the deputy clerk solicit-ing cannon sponsors or CCBF.Most o the business owners intown were contacted or this ar-ticle. Te reactions varied, withsome stronger than others. Notone person thought the solicita-tion by a town employee was agood idea. Te level o additionalbusiness garnered over the reen-actment week-end also varied.wo businesses expect a signi-cant increase in business duringthe reenactment: Irish Isles andItalian ouch. Brian Laughlin,owner o the Irish Isles, said thereenactment week-end is his big-gest week-end o the year, secondonly to St. Patrick’s Day. Brianexpects to be paying the town “anice bump up in sales tax.” rev-or Strosnider, manager at Italianouch also predicts a good week-end. He is adding sta, includingdrivers, because a lot o the reen-actors order or delivery.Te remaining business ownersin town report modest, i any, in-crease in business during the re-enactment week-end. Anita Hol-ley at the Wonderul Store, rarely gets much additional businesssince “reenactors spend theirmoney buying reenactment gear.”Te Browns at Why Not An-tiques also do not expect muchadditional business.Deepak Kumar at the Sunocostation, and Sherry Bohnenkampat Middletown Liberty say they might sell a ew extra gallons o gas, but not much more. Sherry said she had more business whenthe reenactors registered in herparking lot, but in spite o a con-tract she signed with CCBF tohold registrations in her park-ing lot, the registration site wasmoved elsewhere.Te Wayside Inn has been busy in the past, but this year the num-ber o reservations made by re-enactors is down. Te Super 8 isbusy that week-end, but they didnot know whether it was reenac-tors or the usual all crowd.Te reaction to the solicitionsby the deputy clerk or the CCBFrange rom a mild “that is notright” to much stronger language.Deepak pointed out that CCBFdoes not even use Middletownpolice any more. Anita believesthe solicitations were “a misuse o town assets or a personal projecto the mayor.”Te strongest words came romormer Middletown Mayor MarkBrown. He said it was “totally in-appropriate. You do not use towngovernment employees to sup-port private organizations, espe-cially ones that are not even intown. CCBF is a worthy organi-zation worthy o volunteer timeand support. asking a town em-ployee to do CCBF work on towntime is a serious error in judg-ment.”Next year, suggested a coupleo business owners, the mayorwould be better o spending histime helping the local businesseshire a bus to transport reenac-tors into town. own residentshave asked the CCBF or years torun the buses through town, tono avail. Next year, the businessowners plan to hire their own.
