Black bears sighted around town
By Rachel Hamman The Frederick County Report n recent weeks, there have been black bear sightings in Stephens City, according to town manager Mike Kehoe and Stephens City Police Chief Charles Bockey. Neither one of them has actually seen a bear in Stephens City, but Chief Bockey has responded to at least one call about bear sightings. According to Kehoe, a bear was seen recently crossing the ball field near the town office in Stephens City. Chief Bockey said a lady flagged him down a few weeks ago and told him about seeing a bear. According to Bockey, the bear was seen in the area of Crooked Lane in Stephens City and had gotten into a lady’s bird feeder. Bockey said the bear the lady saw was a small young bear. Chief Bockey is asking residents to leave bears alone if they see one. He says that bears will usually move on after they find something to eat. If a bear is creating a problem for the town, a game warden will be called. Bockey said a game warden can respond to a call to Stephens City within forty-five

I

minutes. Bear sightings are more prevalent in the area this year than they have been in the past. Bockey also noted that a bear had been seen earlier in the year in the area of Comer Drive near High Point Truck Stop in Stephens City. Kehoe said he saw a bear recently as he was crossing North Mountain, which is west of Stephens City. Kehoe also noted that a bear had been seen near Hupp’s Hill in Strasburg. Bockey believes the bears are coming from the Passage Road area to the west of Stephens City where the land is more densely wooded. Citizens are asked to call the police if they see a bear. Bockey said people should keep their trash can lids on tight. The town of Stephens City has posted a notice on their website about bears being seen within the town limits. In the notice, police are asking citizens to put their trash out for pick-up in the morning instead of putting it out at night. According to the Virginia Department of Game and Inland

Fisheries website, black bear sightings are becoming more common due to the growing black bear population. Bears are also more visible to humans during years when the wild berry and nut crop is lower than normal. The best way to help keep bears away from residential areas is not to leave food out that attracts bears. According to the VDGIF, bears are most attracted to “bird feeders, garbage and pet food” but they may be attracted to other foods such as “livestock food, compost and beehives”. For those wildlife lovers who enjoy seeing black bears, they should know that according to the VDGIF, “It is now illegal to deliberately feed bears on both public and private lands” (Virginia Code: 4 VAC 15-40-281 and 4 VAC 15-40-282). For more information on how you can help prevent bear problems, visit the VDGIF website at dgif.virginia.gov. If you see a bear, call the Frederick County Sheriff ’s non-emergency line at 540-662-6162.

Winchester

By Johnathan Lucci Frederick County Report Winchester City Council was given a briefing Tuesday evening on the possibility of an Air Force JROTC program at Handley High School in the future. The briefing was given by Councilman John Tagnesi, himself a retired Air Force Colonel. Tagnesi had previously given the same briefing to the school board and emphasized the key role that the school board and Council could play in the program’s development.

He told Council members that the program has been a proven success at hundreds of other schools in the country, instilling motivation and discipline in students, as well as increasing their self esteem. He said that the Air Force also hopes the programs curriculum and structure would “instill an interest in science and math.” Tagnesi displayed the credo of the Winchester Public Schools and the mission statement of the Air Force JROTC and emphasized the degree to which the two overlap. He was insistent that

the program would enhance the ability of Handley High School to develop mature and driven young men and women. “Students earn thousands of hours of community ser vice through JROTC,” said Tagnesi in his presentation. He also told the members about some of the potential benefits for students wishing to join the military after high school. The military academies, including the Air Force Academy, leave a certain number of slots aside just for students involved in JROTC programs. Students who enlist after high school will receive quicker promotions upon entering the military if they were in a JROTC unit. Tagnesi also said that a survey of high school principals showed that attendance rates and graduation rates were significantly higher for JROTC cadets than for the average students. He informed Council that it would take a year from the moment Handley applied for the creation

Members of Winchester City Council look through paperwork during a work session on Tuesday. of the program until the Air Force would decide. More time would be needed to find an instructor. The operating costs would be paid for by the Air Force, as well as half of the instructor’s salary. The other half of that salary would be the responsibility of the school. Also at Council’s meeting, the members heard the testimony of Chief of Police Kevin Sanzenbacher, who was petitioning Council to adopt an ordinance increasing the fees on taxi cab companies. The Chief informed Council that the police department is required to investigate the fitness of an applying taxi drivers and that the cost of doing so far outstrips the fee required for application. He also indicated that the increased fee would help cut down on some of the less legitimate taxi cab drivers. “This will hopefully discourage some of the fly by night operators from coming into the city,” said Chief Sanzenbacher.

In other news

By Amanda Iacone Virginia Statehouse News RICHMOND — Trading in Virginia’s gas-guzzling fleet of trucks and cars for greener models will help improve the state’s air quality, put Virginians to work and even save tax dollars, Gov. Bob McDonnell says. “We think Virginia is doing its part by converting from gasoline that comes in part from foreign countries to either natural gas or electricity or propane or hydrogen or some other fuel will show that we’re serious about American energy independence,” McDonnell said Tuesday. The state plans to vastly expand the use alternative fuels, such as propane and natural gas, to power its 10,000-vehicle fleet and could seek proposals from suppliers and car manufacturers as early as this month. The proposals will help the state determine the cost of converting many of its trucks and cars to run on a fuel other than petroleum. Lawmakers threw their support behind converting the fleet during this past General Assembly session and also passed a bill that is expected to accelerate the use of electric vehicles by Virginia drivers. Tuesday, McDonnell signed

an executive order to begin this conversion process, which could begin within the year. Relying more on alternative fuels is part of McDonnell’s effort to make Virginia the energy capital of the East Coast. Although McDonnell advocates for offshore oil drilling, he also supports offshore wind farms as well as the expansion of nuclear power and research into energy produced by burning wood waste, manure and garbage, known as biomass. About 1,200 state vehicles run on E-85, which is ethanol blended with gasoline, and a handful of diesel trucks the Virginia Department of Transportation operates runs on biodiesel, said Mike Bisogno, fleet manager for the state Department of General Services.

The department operates 4,000 vehicles that various state agencies use. It spent $4.2 million on fuel during the past year — an extra $33,000 of that was spent to buy more than 12,000 gallons of E-85 fuel, according to the state Department of General Services. But McDonnell said he wants state trucks and cars to run on compressed natural gas and propane gas — fuels that are produced in the United States and even in Virginia — in addition to E-85 capable cars, often referred to as flex-fuel cars. McDonnell said not all state vehicles will be converted, because some vehicles, like state police cars for example, may not be a good fit for alternative fuels. He acknowledged that the state would incur upfront costs for the vehicles and tanks as well as employee training, but the petroleum fuel savings will more than pay for the program. The cost to buy vehicles that can run on alternative fuels varies. Some vehicles could be converted to run on alternative fuels, such as propane, for about $10,000. A new electric Ford Focus would cost $20,000 to $30,000 — more than a standard gas-fueled Focus, which can cost about $16,000, according to a Richmond Ford dealer who attended the executive

order signing Tuesday. Bisogno said there is no price difference between state vehicles that run on E-85 fuel and their petroleum-fueled counterparts. All states’ fleets are required to buy cars and light pickup trucks that can run on alternative fuels under federal law. Many states buy flex-fuel cars to meet the federal requirement, but they don’t have to buy E-85, said Patrick O’Connor, legislative counsel for the NAFA Fleet Management Association. The association represents fleet managers for utility companies, corporations plus local and state governments. Some states, like Utah and Florida, are using fuels like natural gas to run heavy-duty vehicles, like dump trucks or buses, O’Connor said. Delegate Danny Marshall, RDanville, said he wanted to use natural gas and methane gas, which are produced in the southwest corner of the state. “It’s a win that the energy is created here, a win that the jobs are going to be created here. And the other wins is that we are not sending our money to the Middle East,” Marshall said. “I just think it makes a lot of sense.” Marshall sponsored a bill calling for the administration to convert the fleet, the go-ahead

that McDonnell needed to move ahead. The plan passed through the Legislature easily with bipartisan support, and McDonnell ceremonially signed the bill into law Tuesday. Air pollution controls in Northern Virginia also prompted lawmakers to pass a bill that would allow retailers, like Kmart and Walmart, to offer charging stations for electric car drivers. McDonnell also ceremonially signed this bill into law Tuesday. Until now, only public utility companies could sell electricity. And a law change was needed to allow the retail charging stations, said Delegate David Bulova, DFairfax, who sponsored the bill. He said he wants to encourage more drivers to buy electric vehicles because they can run on energy produced in Virginia and create less pollution than gas-powered vehicles — a key advantage for Northern Virginia, which does not meet air quality standards, Bulova said. “None of this is possible, if the infrastructure doesn’t exist to make electric vehicles practical and convenient,” he said. McDonnell said he hopes the state’s investment in these new technologies will create the infrastructure needed to serve localities and Virginia motorists.

MIDDLETOWN — Authorities are asking for community members to step forward if they have any information that could provide a suspect for the recent abduction and rape of a Frederick County woman. Last week, while stopped at the Liberty service station on Reliance Rd., the 25-year old victim was approached by two men who were said to have been driving a green pickup truck. The pair forced the woman into the truck and traveled to a residence, where they bound the woman and repeatedly assualted her sexually. Following the abuse the pair then ditched the woman alongside Route 11, north of Lord Fairfax Community College. Information is being sought relating to either an older model green pickup, or a white Bonneville being in the area of the LIberty station Wednesday, July 13 between 5 and 10:30 p.m. Any and all calls should be directed to Detective Michael Tennet at 540-868-0535.

Jack breaks bottle ad barrier
By Amanda Iacone Virginia Statehouse News RICHMOND — Vodka billboards, neon beer signs, even signboards with happy hour specials are not commonplace in Virginia. But, in fact, such signs have been illegal for years. But a law change that took effect this month will ease those decades-old, some say antiquated, restrictions. And the first billboard advertising for Jack Daniels went up this month south of Richmond off Interstate 95. More billboards advertising beer, wine or liquor are expected in the coming months even as the state’s Alcohol Beverage Control board, or ABC, works to draft regulations to implement the law. In response to a legal settlement between the state and Lamar Advertising, the Legislature passed a new law that allows alcohol advertisements on billboards that are 500 feet from schools, churches and daycares. But the law continues previous prohibitions against outdoor advertising at restaurants, bars and grocery stores. That means restaurants cannot hang paper signs or banners detailing specials. They still cannot announce happy hour times on pole signs or signboards. And they can’t hang neon beer logos in the windows, said Tom Lisk, who lobbies for the Virginia Hospitality and Travel Association, which promotes the interests of restaurant, lodging, travel and hospitality suppliers associations, according to its website. The settlement between the state’s attorney general and Lamar would have eliminated those bans and given restaurants and grocery stores the flexibility to provide signs that would help consumers, Lisk said. A billboard depicting a whiskey ad is the first in the state hangs over I-95 south of Richmond. Such advertisements were illegal until a change in law took effect this month. AI/VSN Under today’s laws, restaurants can’t advertise drink specials on their websites or Facebook pages. Although the state doesn’t have the resources to patrol those sites and pages, competitors often will

turn in a restaurant owner for violating the rules, Lisk said. To sell liquor by the drink, establishments also must sell food and it’s often said the state has no bars because of that rule. And until the 1980s, taverns could not use the word “ale” in their names, he said. “That’s how antiquated this stuff is,” he said. “You’d be amazed how many of our liquor laws have not changed since the repeal of Pro-

hibition.” Lisk said legislators respond to socially conservative constituents’ concerns, and they don’t want to be smeared in political campaigns for expanding access to alcohol. Delegate Glenn Oder, R-Newport News, drafted the legislation this session. He said lawmakers kept the prohibitions on outdoor banners and other displays based on responses from constituents during the debate whether the state should sell ABC stores to private retailers. Virginians said loud and clear that they did not want their state to look like Maryland and Washington, D.C., which allow signs and liquor advertisements to pepper storefronts and landscapes alike, Oder said. The settlement with Lamar effectively would have allowed that proliferation of advertising to hap-

now, they are going to wait to see what those regulations might say before they buy any ad space, said Patrick Cushing, who represents the Virginia Wine Council, a nonprofit that advocates for the wine industry. Billboard companies — about 10 belong to the Outdoor Advertisers Association of Virginia — are taking advantage of the changes and intend to comply with the law, said Chip Dicks, who represents the billboard association. “There is a lack of clarity about how things would be implemented,” Dicks said. “All the billboard companies want is responsible implementation of the law.” The billboards must be 500 feet away from schools, residential property and churches. But the companies want to know how the ABC will measure that, either from property line to property line

or door step to billboard. He said he wants to know if roads, like interstates, would count in that measurement. And they want to know if ABC will enforce the regulations or the Virginia Department of Transportation, which now regulates billboards, Dicks said. The companies also are waiting to find out if ABC will require a permit to post the alcohol ads. He said permits open the door to allow the state to approve the sign based on content and not whether it complies with the location requirements. On a practical level, advanced approval would be costly and tie up ABC officials and is not good governance, Dicks said. “The idea was to create something clear, so you don’t have to get permits every time you want to switch ads,” he said. But despite the restrictions in place, some legislators still are concerned about the impact on young adults especially. Colleges and universities have enough problems with binge drinking, and allowing alcohol ads on billboards will only add to the temptation, said Delegate Bob Marshall, R-Prince William. The limitations on alcohol still serve a purpose and he said the legislation sets a precedent that could loosen restrictions on alcohol advertisements in general. “Are there going to be ads in college newspapers for hard liquor and vodka?” Marshall said.

pen here, he said. Lamar’s lawsuit focused on billboard advertising and so legislators had to provide flexibility in the law for that type of advertising, Oder said. “We reinstated all of the regulations that ABC had discarded and then we put in very limited and strict provisions for outdoor advertising,” Oder said. “At the end of the day, I wish that ABC would hurry up and get their regulations passed.” The state should have draft regulations available for public review this fall, said Kathleen Shaw, a spokeswoman for the ABC. And the state’s wine industry and billboard companies are watching closely to see what those regulations say. Some of the state’s wineries and vineyards may be interested in billboard advertising.

Keep us “in the know”

Beginning in July, contractors working for SVEC will be capturing GPS coordinates of all poles and underground enclosures in Frederick, Page, Warren, Clarke, and Higland counties and the city of Winchester, and all underground enclosures in Augusta, Shenandoah, and Rockingham counties. Vehicles of the contractors will be visibly marked with the traditional Cooperative logo and name. Gathering the GPS data is beneficial to you in several ways. The poles and underground enclosures will be more specifically mapped, which means more accurate engineering. The GPS information will also allow for outage information to be more precise, as locations will be more easily pinpointed with the new data.

SVEC contractors to gather GPS information

Additionally, integration of the locations with other agencies (counties and 911 call centers) will be more accurate. You may notice these workers crossing through your yard to reach a pole or enclosure. These workers are there to record these GPS coordinates, and the process should take no longer than a couple of minutes at each location. In most cases, you will not have contact with the contractors. However, in some instances, such as a farm or home out in the country, they may knock on your door. Information about the GPS mapping will be available on our website, www.svec.coop, and you can also call your local SVEC telephone number for more information.

SVEC announces rate changes for newly acquired service territory
Shenandoah Valley Electric Cooperative (SVEC) announced today that residential members of the Cooperative residing within Allegheny Energy’s former service territory will see small rate changes as of July 1, 2011. These rate changes have been approved by the State Corporation Commission (SCC). While there is a small increase of .00201 dollars per kWh ($2.01 per 1000 kWh) for residential accounts, the $97.92 SVEC will be billing per 1000 kWh is 11.18 percent less than the $108.67 that Allegheny could have charged. Residential and general service accounts will see an estimated increase of less than 4 percent in total billing. Industrial accounts within SVEC’s newly acquired area will actually see a decrease in rates as a result of the change. The amount of the change will depend upon the rate classes in which these accounts are billed. “As a non-profit, member-owned electric Cooperative, we want to do everything we can to help our member/owners keep their power bills manageable,” said Myron D. Rummel, SVEC’s President and CEO. “As of July 1, residential members in the territory acquired from Allegheny Energy will be paying about 11 percent less than what they would have paid if Allegheny had continued to be their electric service provider. These changes clearly indicate that the transaction that occurred on Instead, for bills rendered until August 1, members in the newly acquired service territories will see the LPPF, Wholesale Power cost Adjustment (“WPA Fuel Adj”) and Rider OD11-Q (“RIDER OD11-Q”) on their bills. Each of these charges will be prorated, with the LPPF ending June 30 and the other charges taking its place thereafter. After August 1, these members will only see the Wholesale Power cost Adjustment ( “ W PA F u e l Adj”) and Rider OD11-Q (“RIDER OD11-Q”) on their bills. These changes are required under agreements overseen by the State Corporation Commission when the transaction was approved early last year. Shenandoah Valley Electric Cooperative also continues to make capital improvements to facilities throughout the newly acquired area in an effort to increase efficiency and reliability. Since taking over last June, SVEC has been installing new metering equipment, increasing rights of way clearance and maintenance efforts, and replacing old equipment.

June 1, 2010 was in the best interest of the Allegheny Energy customers SVEC acquired.” SVEC also noted that there will be different charges listed on member statements to account for the change. Beginning July 1, Allegheny Energy’s Levelized Purchased Power Factor (“LPPF”) will no longer be in effect. The Green

Last-Minute Vacations
If you didn’t plan for a vacation this summer but are determined to get a break, it’s still possible even at this late date. In fact, the approaching end of summer might work in your favor as owners try to fill last-minute vacancies. Look for vacation rentals that are within a few hours drive of home. You’ll save precious vacation time by not battling crowds and security at airports and wasting time in the air, not to mention saving money on airfare and transportation. Vacation rentals generally will accommodate your whole family and allow you to save money by cooking your own meals. Many provide laundry facilities. While you might think you want a place with activities suited to your interests, consider taking this opportunity to try something new. If you’re into golf, go for a lakeside cabin that comes with fishing poles and a canoe. If you like water skiing, opt for a condo in an historic city for a change of pace. Go online to www.vacationhomerentals.com and click on your state. You’ll find rentals categorized by county and town, with lots of photos

and descriptions. If a property sounds interesting, check the availability. For verification or to ask if there have been cancellations, contact the owner using the online form. Ask if any endof-season deals are available. Don’t miss the Last Minute Deals link at the top of the main page. Check www.vacationrentals.com, and again click on your state. You’ll be able to narrow your choices by date, reviews and whether the rental has a pool or allows pets. You can select multiple rentals to compare. Check the activities on each listing for local attractions. This site provides the owner’s name and telephone number, as well as an online contact form. If you want a lot of amenities, consider a timeshare rental. With timeshares, owners “own” a certain week or weeks each year when they have use of the accommodations. They can’t always use those weeks and will rent out the property. Timeshares generally have a full menu of amenities, and many are luxurious resorts. Search online for timeshares in your state. Call the timeshare office directly, as it’s likely to have a list of rentals. As always, ask whether any discounts are available. 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.
