Law lets bikes run red lights
and bikes aren’t heavy enough or don’t have enough metal to trip the sensor. “Most of the traffic signals today have a wire in the road – so it’s an induction loop. And frequently there’s just not enough metallic mass for the induction loop to pick up a cycle that goes over there,” Burnley said. “If you’re on a bike and you get to a stoplight – and I stop for stoplights religiously – it puts me into a difficult position. Because if the light doesn’t change, I’ve either got to wait for a car to come up behind me to trip the stoplight, or I’ve got to break the law – and I don’t like to do that.” D e l e g at e Th o m a s “ Ta g ” Greason, who sponsored HB 1981, said the legislation will make things much safer for riders. “ The bill i s de sig ne d to increase the safety for those riders who ride motorcycles, mopeds or bicycles,” Greason said. “When they approach and are stranded at an intersection, and the weight of their vehicle is not great enough to trigger the light, and so they’re stranded at a red light, and they really don’t have any legal options available to them under today’s code.” causes an accident. But those questions have been addressed in the bill, he said. “Imagine that the red light is a stop sign: If the motorcyclist pulls out into oncoming traffic and causes an accident, he would have the same liability if he was at a red light or if he was at a stop sign,” Greason said. Under his measure, motorcycles and bicycles must come to a complete stop at a red light and wait for 10 seconds or two cycles of the light. “Then they proceed with caution, as if they were at a stop sign, and they must maintain all the liability, and give way to oncoming traffic, from either direction,” Greason said. “So there is no transfer of liability.” Delegate Bill Janis, R-Glen Allen, introduced a similar measure – HB 1991. His proposal was folded into Greason’s bill. HB 1981 passed the House on a 75-4 vote in January. The Senate then unanimously approved the bill – with an amendment emphasizing that bicyclists and motorcyclists who proceed through a red light must yield to oncoming traffic. The House then voted 87-11 in favor of the amended bill.

House Bill 1981 will let motorcyclists, moped riders and bicyclists pass through red lights, as long as there is no oncoming traffic, after waiting 10 seconds or two cycles of the light. The law will take effect July 1. Champe Burnley, president of the Virginia Bicycling Federation, said riders of twowheel vehicles often end up trapped at red lights, with no safe, legal option about what to do, because motorcycles

Our washing machine is pretty old, and one day when my son was doing laundry the dial made a cracking sound and came off in his hand. Right now we make do by arduously turning the small plastic collar that’s left until the wash cycle comes on. However, only one cycle, “permanent press,” works properly (goes all the way from start to finish). Is there any way to fix this, or should I start saving for a new washer? — Hannah G., Brattleboro, Vt. Unfortunately, I’m not sure exactly what the solution would be. If I had the make and model of the washing machine, I could look up common problems and suggested fixes for that brand. I do know that some replacement parts, like the dial, can be ordered, but if the machine is more than several years old, the part may no longer be available. The single-cycle only problem might be a problem with the wash timer, but again, it’s tough to know how to fix it. Your best option at the moment is to contact an appliance repair center with the make and model and a description of the problem. A repairman might come out to fully diagnose the issue. If so, ask for any repair estimate in writing before allowing any work to be done. *** I picked up an older washerdryer set for a good price via an online ad. Everything works fine, except that when the clothes are done washing, they seem to

have a lot of lint and stuff on them. Most of it comes off in the dryer, but it’s annoying. How can I fix it? — A Reader, via email Sounds like the washer could have had some kind of linttrap attachment. Many, many years ago, some upright washers had perforated plastic attachments placed on or near the top of the basin to catch stray lint during the wash and rinse cycles. Contact the person you bought it from and ask if he or she has something like that. You may be able to order the part online as well.

A:

A:

Keep your w a s h i n g machine clean by wiping down the tub periodically with a damp cloth. Twice a year, run the washer through a full cycle with only a cup of vinegar or bleach added. Incidentally, many modern washers still have lint traps. They’re located in out-of-the-way places and are designed to not need cleaning very often. Check the manufacturer’s guide to see if your new washer has a lint trap and for any instructions regarding its maintenance.

If you’re single, it’s likely that you’re using dating Web sites like job seekers use Monster and Hotjobs, hoping that you’ll find someone who fits your dating profile. The TV commercials love to trumpet the fact that one in five relationships today start on an online dating site. The thing that irritates Dr. Kenneth Ryan is that they fail to mention what happens AFTER people meet online. “The term ‘online dating’ itself is deceptive,” said Ryan, author of Finding Your Prince in a Sea of Toads: How to Find a Quality Guy Without Getting Your Heart Shredded (www.findingyourprince.com). “You don’t ‘date’ online. You meet online, but the dating that occurs after all the emails and online chats is something people still find confusing and frustrating. Figuring out how to write a decent profile for a web site is only step one. Steps two through marriage are more about relating in-person than online. If people do not know how to evaluate and grow a relationship, they end u p discouraged or part of the 50% divorce

statistics.” Dr. Ryan, who has spent years with his wife counseling engaged couples about sex through their church classes on marriage, has aggregated some of his best advice on dating into a list of the five most common mistakes made in dating. They include: √ D on’t B e To o Passive – Some women feel helpless and

√ Don’t Be Too Aggressive Women who come on too strong look desperate and may scare off quality guys. Preda-

Learn how to engage men without coming on too strong.

Don’t B e Naive Ab out Men – If a woman does not understand the huge difference between men and women when it comes to sex and relationships, she will get burned. If most of her guidance for relationships comes from popular media and peers, she is working from a position of ignorance. Movie makers couldn’t care less about your life. They just
want your $14 movie ticket.

tory males look for desperate women because they will do almost anything to get a guy. hopeless because few men have shown interest in them. They sit alone at home hoping Prince Charming will one day knock on the door. There are many ways a woman can improve her connections with guys and make herself more appealing. They are not helpless or hopeless.

asked to repeat three words, tell time, know the day of the week, spell a word backward and copy a figure with pencil and paper. Nearly one-third of those senior patients being released from the hospital had low cognition scores. This means that seniors coming out of the hospital might not understand the instructions they’re given for medications and self-care. Tested again one month later, their scores had risen considerably for things like reading, writing, calculations and comprehension. One conclusion of the study was that “patient self-management” training -- teaching the patient about his or her medications and care -- should be handled later rather than at the time the patient is being sent home. Another conclusion was that doctors and family (and I’d add “friends”) need to step up, be aware of the phenomenon and give assistance -- or at least arrange for it.

Confusion after hospital stay
Anyone who’s been in the hospital can remember the feeling of unreality that comes from the noises and sleep interruptions in that environment, not to mention feeling unwell. And going home doesn’t automatically make everything fine again: Many seniors experience loss of memory, confusion and cognitive problems when they’re discharged from the hospital. The National Institute of Aging commissioned a study on this phenomenon, and it was completed by the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. Two hundred seniors age 70plus who had no previous cognitive or dementia issues were given a Mini-Mental Status Examination upon release from the hospital. This 30-question test only takes a few minutes to administer, and checks for things such as orientation to time and place, calculation, attention and recall. The patient is

Belle Grove’s “Of Ale and History” Saturday, May 7th
By Lorie Showalter The Sherando Times Belle Grove was brewing plans Tuesday morning for its 16th annual beer festival this Saturday, May 7 and between its directors, coordinators, staff and sponsors, their “Of Ale and History” beer festival is fermenting into a wonderful weekend. Executive Director Elizabeth McClung, Events and Program Coordinator Cora Gnegy and a half dozen sponsors and Belle Grove staff members met to discuss and finalize the burgeoning plans for the much awaited for festival. McClung says, “This year we’ve expanded offerings and tastings from 40 to 65 microbrews and tickets have been selling very well.” McClung said this was the first year they’d been able to offer tickets directly from their own website, which helps them monitor how well sales are going. Advance tickets can also be purchased for $0 at any Handy Mart location as usual, however this year they also offer tickets online from their website bellegrove.org McClung credits Gnegy for coordinating the event saying,

or $5 for designated drivers and children. Ticket prices are $5 at the gate on May 7. The ticket price includes a commemorative tasting glass which holds eight tasting tickets, tours of the historic manor house, access to all vendors, activities and area crafters, as well as musical entertainment by bands Cazhmiere who will be performing from 11:30 a.m. to :30 p.m. and Modern Thieves from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Gnegy says, “Designated drivers, children or individuals not wanting to taste or sample the beer are given a different colored wristband.” Whether the wristband is orange or blue, the building excitement over the upcoming festival is definitely in the air. In addition to food, drink, music and an array of entertainment, the Winchester Cannons rugby team will host a multiclub tournament on the front meadow. For those who are designated drivers, complimentary non-alcoholic drinks and water will be available and sponsored by Red Bull. Another new feature of the festival will be its opening time which will be 11 a.m. instead of noon. McClung says they’ve learned that the event brings in so many families that they wanted to give more people opportunity to get settled on the grounds prior to the tasting which begins at noon. This gives families time to find a comfortable picnic spot, tour the manor and grounds, seek out vendors and then be ready for the “tasting field” at 1:00 p.m. “We’ve found this has become such a family event and we want to accommodate this trend,” says McClung. Sixty-two beers will be available for tasting which means after your first eight tastes which come with your admission ticket, if your goal is to taste the other 54 brands, don’t despair, you can purchase additional tickets at the festival and continue to enjoy the music and other entertainment. Beer without food would be like, well … the beach without an ocean, so the festival has that covered too! Vendors at the event range from Thai, BBQ, Italian and other favorites as well as a mix of European imported beer, American microbrews and a few domestic favorites. So, what’s the forecast for this long awaited and much needed fun festival of beer and ale? Does it really matter? One sponsor was heard to say, “All we need now is for the beer god to look out for us!” Another claimed that Grounds Supervisor Dennis Campbell was in charge of the weather … well Dennis, what do you say? We won’t hold you responsible but anything you can do to make it sunny and nice would be much appreciated! lories@sherandotimes.com

√ Don’t Panic – Women become so fearful that they will never find a guy who loves them that they abandon their convictions and make irrational, dangerous decisions. Some painful effects are immediate, while some might not surface for years. √ Don’t Sleep with the Boyfriend – Every woman must make her own decision and it is a huge decision. This is the most common and most harmful mistake. It causes an avalanche of problems, many that the woman does not anticipate. Sex with a boyfriend might seem romantic or exhilarating but there are hidden fangs that will cut deep. You can’t put a condom on your heart. “It’s not easy to navigate the sharkinfested waters of the dating world, but if you can follow these basic tips, you shouldn’t have to worry about being someone else’s prey,” Dr. Ryan added.

Should you get nipped and tucked?
Anti-aging advocate reveals why plastic surgery can be good for you

Jane Baskin thinks that if you don’t like what you see in the mirror, you should feel free to change it. “I’m a big advocate of what I call Life .0,” said Baskin, a former social worker, anti-aging advocate and author of Jane of the Jungle (http://foreverkindayoung. blogspot.com). “What I’m referring to is the third stage of life, or the second stage of middle age.

Because of the extended life span and the ability to prolong youth with medicine, diet, exercise and plastic surgery, old age is postponed. So what do you do when your kids are grown and you don’t want to work a straight job any more? Waiting to die used to be a brief wait, but now it can take thirty years or more. Life .0 is that time between cresting middle age and getting old. It should be

as vital a time as youth. And if you feel young, you should look young, too.” The numbers bear out her message. According to statistics released today by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), 13.1 million cosmetic plastic surgery procedures, including those that are minimally-invasive or surgical, were performed in the United States in 010, up 5 percent from 009. In addition, more than 5.3 million reconstruc-

tive plastic surgery procedures were performed last year, up  percent. The increase in cosmetic plastic surgery mirrors the rise in consumer confidence throughout most of 010.

About Jane Baskin Jane Baskin is a former Boston TAB features writer and clinical social worker. She lives in the mountains outside Albuquerque, New Mexico, with her husband and their herd of dogs and cats.

Community

Loving Arms assists with ‘Loaves and Fishes’ project
By Carol Ballard Warren County Report A new food pantry has opened in the basement of the Hospitality House at Loving Arms Assisted Living to help serve the needs of eligible folks from Warren and surrounding counties. Its name is Loaves and Fishes, and it is based on the bible story about a miracle performed by Jesus Christ turning a few loaves of bread and some fish into a feast big enough to feed hundreds of hungry people. To Shelly Cook, RN, founder and director of Loving Arms, the point is that there’s always enough. “It’s been a dream of mine to help the community and feed the poor,” she said. Shelly and volunteers Megan Perrero, who performs managerial and intake duties and, Patrick Johnson, who is executive chef and chief dietary manager for Loving Arms, were all gathered in the basement storehouse, and enthusiastically went over some of the details of the operation. Megan said that since the pantry opened on Ash Wednesday last month, it has served 47 peopleapproximately 30 a day. Patrick commented on the sharing aspect of the program. “We depot here – today we sent 1900 lbs of food to Madison County. So far we’ve also shared food with Luray, Woodstock, Stanley, and Rappahannock County, but the majority is given to Front Royal,” he said, and added, “It’s about working together for the common cause for humanity.” Shelly said that the project got off the ground initially because she was approached by representatives of the Arlington diocese of Catholic Charities who wanted to know whether they could assist with Loving Arms’ needs. They have since brought help to Loaves and Fishes and give monetary support, but Shelly, with the help of volunteers, is essentially responsible for the day-to-day operations. They also work with Father Fasano of Front Royal’s St. John’s Catholic Church, who, she said, “offers an extended hand as well.” “I thank the Catholic charities, but I first thank God. He’s the reason we’re here. We couldn’t do it without him,” Shelly said. Megan also communicates with other churches to let them know about a program Shelly characterizes as a “humanitarian act of all Faiths coming together, to work together to stop hunger”. There is also secular help. Once a month they get food from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and also buy from the Blue Ridge Food Bank at a reduced rate. Food is also donated through commercial enterprises and Big Box stores. “We’re trying to augment some of the government’s programs that a family may not qualify for,” she said. And some of the elderly are

not as well taken care of by the standard services. Patrick said, “One consequence of the system is that families with children get help and older people get tanked.” For example, one client told them that he receives $684 in Social Security per month and is eligible only for $14 a month in food stamps. “It’s not about criticizing the government programs, but just about helping others. It’s not my job to know how much money they have, or how many cars are in their driveway,” Shelly said. Shelly wanted to emphasize that there is not as much abuse of the system by people in need as some skeptics think. She said, “It’s not true people go from pantry to pantry. We have people here who want to give back. We have people volunteering. One lady goes to Food Lion and collects bakery items and brings them here and others have stepped up as well. Someone came here who was on Disability and couldn’t hold a job and he comes here and helps. It feels good getting to help other people.” Also, no one is made to feel unwelcome and there is dignity in the process of collecting food and other items. At the entry, there are shopping carts, so people can choose their own food. Some special items are just for kids. There’s a snack bin where they can get a bag and count out snacks for a week . There are even coloring books for them. “That was Megan’s idea,” Shelly said, and added, “One little girl came in and said, ‘I get to choose?’” “We don’t turn anyone away. Megan does the intake paperwork with them and fills out forms if there’s a literacy problem. I’ve watched the staff help people who were crying, and they were so compassionate. We want to make the experience for them easy,” Shelly asserted. There is a form to fill out that asks how else the Pantry may help, which is designed to help the person in the long run, not just to patch up the temporary need for food. “We try to see what else the person needs. There are a lot of programs people don’t know about and if they don’t know where to look, they won’t know what is out there,” Shelly said. On the person’s first visit to the Pantry, they can get food from the USDA section, then two weeks later they can have a second shopping for a great variety of donated canned and non-perishable items. Thirty days after the initial visit, they can

Stay Smart Stay Healthy
Have yourself or loved ones evaluated by a health care professional for any breathing issues. Two different types are mainly used for the care and control of asthma related symptoms; relief and controller. Relief medications are used for sudden shortness of breath, wheezing or other symptoms. Controller medications are taken daily to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Helping to maintain a healthy lifestyle often takes making changes, like avoiding things that trigger an attack.
Possible triggers: *Pollen from trees and grasses *Animal dander *Air pollution/high ozone levels *Molds *Dust mites *Cockroaches *Tobacco smoke *Exercise Medications: Getting Control:

Area residents were treated Tuesday, May 3 to an asthma screening as part of Valley Health’s initiative to educate on World Asthma Day. Their ‘breathe easy’ truck was spotted on South Pleasant Valley Road.

Take a deep breath has dual meaning for approximately 15 million people across the United States. For those 15 million, sometimes a deep breath can feel like an eternity on pause. Asthma attacks have been compared to breathing through a drinking straw, the throat tightens, the chest refuses to inflate, and air is limited. Undiagnosed, an asthmatic can feel like each pained breath is a million years long, in order to help keep everyone educated and aware of the asthma issued prevelant in today’s society Valley Health hit the road. To help raise awareness Valley Health mobilized with their ‘On the Road to Better Health’ vehicle for asthma checks on South Pleasant Valley Road in Winchester. Medical staff were on hand to provide asthma screenings and to help educate the public on what has become one major disease. Reducing activities in areas of high pollen can help keep asthmatics aware, and in control of their affliction. Making sure to keep an open dialogue between the patient and their healthcare professional is importqant in order to keep up on the latest medical trials, medication releases, and controllers that are new to the market. If your asthma is under control with a daily controller asking if that controller is the appropriate approach can often help open the floor for discussion. — Staff Reports

again get USDA items. Fresh produce, milk, eggs, bread and bakery items are given when available any day the pantry is open. Pet food may also be available, depending on whether it has been donated. Patrick said, “We try to keep as many nutritious foods as possible by stocking whole wheat, and even some gluten-free items. We would like to have some sugar-free food, but it’s cost-prohibitive.” Any donation is welcome, but donations of money go further, because they are able to stretch it by shopping in a different area with their discounts. For a $1 donation, for example, they can buy three times as much food. And Shelly stressed, “We’re not-for-profit, no position is paid, we operate with all volunteers. One-hundred per cent of all donated money goes to Loaves and Fishes.” Shelly is a life-long resident of Warren County and founded Loving Arms Assisted Living in 1998 after she went back to school and got her Registered Nurse degree at Shenandoah University. She said, “I didn’t want to leave this world without making a difference. I had a dream and a vision to save people, and I can’t close my eyes to the problems in the world or community, or wait for the next person to do it. I know I can’t solve all the world’s problems, but I can help. If I can send somebody home with enough food so they can feel good about themselves tonight, then I’ve helped - it’s so simple. I truly just love my community and I couldn’t do any of this without my husband, the volunteers, Patrick and Megan. Of all the achievements in my life, I hope someone remembers this.” Volunteers are still needed to help out at the food pantry and they still need personal hygiene donations like shampoo, soap, diapers baby wipesthings that aren’t covered by WIC or food stamps. Toilet tissue, paper towels, and dish and laundry soap are always needed. Donations should be in unopened paper, plastic or glass containers. Donors may drop off donations at the town drop off locations at any time, but at the food pantry only on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to noon. Monetary contributions can be made online at Catholic Charities on www.ccda. net and designate Loaves and Fishes. Checks can also be sent to the Loaves and Fishes address below. A representative of the Blue Ridge

The Loving Arms Food Pantry entrance welcomes all who pass through their doors.

Selling Your Home
Many potential sellers are sitting out the real-estate market and waiting for prices to rise again. But if you need to sell now, there are ways to get the most money for your home. First, don’t try to sell it yourself. An agent or broker will have tools that aren’t available to you: Multiple Listing Service, contacts with other agents, knowledge of the area, pricing comparisons (known as “comps”) and more. At the same time, you’ll need a savvy agent, and it’s up to you to ask questions before you sign with one. The little things can add up: Will the agent hold an open house? Will the agent put your house on the weekly “caravan” where other agents tour your property? Will potential buyers be financially pre-screened? Does the agent have contacts with mortgage lenders to be able to link up with pre-approved buyers who are just beginning to look? What is the marketing plan for your property? On which online sites will your home be listed? There are some steps you can take to have your house looking its best. Here are some recommendations: • Have a home inspection done in advance so there are no surprises dur-

ing negotiations with a buyer. Either have those things fixed or be prepared to take a lower price. As a general rule, a buyer wants a place to move into, not move into and fix. • De-clutter. Throw out or store elsewhere items that make your home look smaller than it is. Take personal photos off the wall. Clear out closets so it looks like there’s plenty of space. (If you’re not sure if you’ve de-cluttered enough, take photos and study them. That’s how the space will look in sale flyers. If there is still too much stuff, move it out.) Ask a friend for an unbiased opinion. • Clean. If necessary, hire a professional service to clean floors and appliances. • Paint. A neutral color is more pleasing to a wider number of potential buyers. • Have the yard manicured and keep it mowed and trimmed at all times. Invest in pots of colorful flowers. • Make sure there are enough lamps in each room to make the space seem bright and open. Leave open the drapes for more natural light when the house is being shown. Finally, don’t make any expensive changes unless your agent suggests it might be necessary. David Uffington regrets that he cannot personally answer reader questions, but will incorporate them into his column whenever possible. Write to him in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475, or send e-mail to columnreply@gmail.com.
