Ask for Your Discount
Sometimes the key to getting a senior discount is just getting up the nerve to ask for one. If we get in the habit of asking for a discount every single time we spend money, think how much we could save. Someone on the Internet has compiled a long list of stores that give discounts to seniors. You can find that list by going to and searching for “106 Stores with Senior Discounts.” There’s even a handy .PDF version you can print out to make sure you don’t miss anything! Categories include Restaurants, Retail and Apparel, Grocery, Travel, Activities and Entertainment, Cell Phones and Miscellaneous. Not only is the amount of the discount noted (either the percentage of the total purchase or a dollar amount), but the day of the week or date during the month, as well as the age it applies to. Some consider us seniors at the age of 50, while others go with age 55, 6 Jeff Richmond Rob Shultz

Boosting Frederick County’s back-to-schoolers
Club Z! tutoring will help local children reach grade level and beyond
It’s that time of year again! Children are flocking back to school, and parental choruses of “Have you done your homework yet?” are echoing nationwide. For many families, too, this is the time of year when it first becomes apparent that a child needs a little extra help. Worrying about a child who is struggling in school is a terrible strain for many parents – and the problem can’t always be solved by putting in an hour or two a night helping with homework or quizzing on test topics. Some children – even very smart children – simply need a bit more, whether more time, access to someone with subject matter or teaching expertise, a more neutral relationship between tutor and pupil, or some one-on-one assistance building study skills, organization, and focusing techniques. Luckily for many distraught parents in Winchester and surrounding areas, this is where Club Z! In-Home Tutoring Services enters the picture. The nation’s largest one-on-one, inhome tutoring program, Club Z!’s supportive methods have resulted in a high success rate and hundreds of thousands of happy clients. Tutoring is conducted one-on-one in the privacy of the student’s own home, where children already feel comfortable and distractions can be minimized. Scheduling is flexible and parentfriendly, and tutors meet with parents after each session to consult on their child’s progress. Club Z! tutors are highly-trained and pre-screened, and can provide instruction in any subject needed, from basic math and reading, to core academic subjects, to standardized test preparation. Club Z! hopes that local families will consider securing a tutor now as their children headed back to school. Whether they are struggling with the new level of academic subject matter, or simply needing to catch up to their peers, Club Z! can help! Our tutors can be a great supplement to home-school programs, providing subject-area expertise, curriculum support, or standardized test preparation to pupils as needed, in conjunction with parents’ own efforts. Our tutor’s schedules fill up quickly once school begins, so call NOW to ensure the most convenient days and times for your child’s tutoring this fall. For additional information about Club Z! Tutoring Services in Winchester and surrounding areas, please call 540 545-7001 and visit www.

Localities fret tight FEMA budget
spokeswoman Megan Whittemore. Whittemore said the U.S. House of Representatives passed a budget bill in June for the Department of Homeland Security to replenish its federal disaster aid fund. But the Senate has not acted on the budget bill. The numerous deadly tornadoes nationwide have depleted much of FEMA’s funding even before the hurricane season began in June. FEMA could be short as much as $5 billion in disaster aid in the coming year. Because of that shortfall, the federal government has delayed approving new, long-term projects, so FEMA has enough cash to grant immediate requests, U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano said during an afternoon news conference in Chesterfield County. For disaster relief efforts, Gov. Bob McDonnell recently set aside $17 million from the year-end cash balance. Of that amount, about $4.3 million is expected to help with the tornado recovery in several southwestern Virginia counties. In addition, a separate state disaster relief fund has raised $1.1 million through private and corporate donations. These and other state funds for disaster response will be tapped for hurricane disaster relief, said Jeff Caldwell, the governor’s

By Amanda Iacone Virginia Statehouse News RICHMOND — As federal disaster relief runs dry, Virginia communities may not get the help they need any time soon, as they clean up from Hurricane Irene’s pummeling. Instead, federal aid is at risk of becoming ensnarled in a debate that could rival the debt-ceiling fracas, which took Congress by storm this summer. U.S. Rep. Eric Cantor, R-7th Congressional District, reiterated this week that any additional funding for the Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA, must be offset with spending cuts in the federal bud-

get. On Monday, Cantor told Fox News; “In instances like this, yes, there is a federal role. Yes, we’re going to find the money. We’re just going to need to make sure that there are savings elsewhere to continue to do so.” He has made similar comments, including after deadly tornadoes tore through southwestern Virginia this spring. “Clearly when disasters and emergencies happen, people expect their government to treat them as national priorities and respond properly. People also expect their government to spend their dollars wisely, and to make efforts to prioritize and save when possible,” said Cantor’s

tor James McReynolds said. York County may have to reach into its $13 million budget or rainy day fund to pay for the preparation and emergency costs in the short term. One quarter of York County was without power Tuesday as officials continue removing debris and using generators to run pump station to keep the county’s sewer system online. The county expects to have an estimated cost for the recovery effort by next week, said George Hrichak, chairman of the county’s board of supervisors. But officials hope FEMA money will be available, he said. “The whole federal budget issue is going to have to be addressed. You can’t spend money like it doesn’t matter. There’s got to be accountability and responsibility,” Hrichak said. “Is it going to hurt localities if we don’t get FEMA money? Absolutely.” Regardless of how Congress pays for disaster assistance, McDonnell said the federal government is obligated by law to give aid to eligible communities. “If we meet the federal requirements, we expect the federal government to pay,” McDonnell said.


Cities and counties will need to find cash upfront to pay police officers overtime, staff emergency operations centers and run shelters. If localities are eligible, state or federal aid could help reimburse those costs. York County is facing at least $1 million in recovery costs, including hiring private contractors to help county workers with the debris pickup, County Administra-

Virginia front and center in campaign 2012
By Jonathan Lucci Frederick County Report Citizens of Frederick County will have a much larger role to play in the Presidential election next year than citizens of most other states. This is because President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign will be focusing heavily on winning Virginia, and his opponent will be just as focused on recapturing the Old Dominion for the Republican Party. In 008, President Obama became the first Democrat since Lyndon Johnson in 1964 to win Virginia’s electoral votes, a feat made possible largely because of the influx of Democratic voters into Northern Virginia as the Washington and Baltimore metro areas expand. Most of the scenarios that result in an Obama victory include Virginia winding up in the blue column. Virginia looks increasingly attractive to the President’s campaign as his popularity erodes rapidly in decisive midwest battlegrounds such as Iowa, Ohio, and even must-win Pennsylvania. At the same time, Republican candidates now focused on their own primary fight are likely feeling confident if the President is placing such heavy emphasis on Virginia. It is very possible that Virginia’s Democratic turn in 008 was symptomatic of the end-of-term unpopularity of former President Bush and will switch back now that Bush is not on the ballot. North Carolina and Indiana are even more extreme cases of states Democrats won in 008 but will almost certainly lose in 01. The question that may decide the next Presidential election is whether Virginia is in that category, or is actually changing so rapidly that it could be a battleground state so crucial it joins Ohio and Florida as the most decisive places for electoral votes. Frederick County itself voted heavily for John McCain in 008, despite the national trend toward President Obama. The City of Winchester voted narrowly for President Obama, giv-

ing him 5% of the vote against McCain. Despite the Republican tilt of the region, every vote cast in Frederick County could be decisive in deciding who wins the state, and therefore possibly the Presidency.

be negative. That is the kind of thing that goes along with being a battleground state, and thanks to the changing demographics Virginia is likely to join Ohio and Florida as perennial battlegrounds. Virginia will also see a bitter fight for the senate seat being vacated by Jim Webb after just one term. Vying for the seat are former senator George Allen and former governor and Democrat chairman Tim Kaine. Both candidates are running with flaws and challenges and the race is expected to be very close. Allen will likely benefit from the President’s unpopular position while possibly still suffering from the fallout of his famous “macaca” moment in 006, when

he ridiculed a staffer from his opponent during a rally. Kaine will be harmed by appearing on the ballot with the President, but his conservative positions on social issues and personal popularity should help him. The race is one of the closest watched races in the country in 01.

people, liberals, hispanics, or African Americans in 01 that secured the Presidency for him in 008. Therefore, at the very least, Virginia’s election will be much closer this year. Both sides are expected to invest heavily in Virginia, so residents of the county should brace for an onslaught of television commercials, some of which are likely to

Return of Friday night football!
While the Sherando players were obviously upset and disappointed that they did not come away with a victory, but they were proud of the spectacular effort they put forth. The players and coaches seemed to understand the potential this season holds now that the Warriors have proven they can go toe to toe with the elite of West Virginia football. Friday also saw the Handley Judges defeat Old Dominion 313, behind a relentless running attack on the ground. James Wood won a close game 4-1 over Heritage while Millbrook was defeated 7-10 by Tuscarora High School. Next issue will include an overall look at the strengths and weaknesses of each of the four Frederick County high school football teams.

By Jonathan Lucci Frederick County Report Friday football made a return to Frederick Aug. 6 as the four county high school teams faced off against their opponents in the opening game of this season. The Sherando Warriors, attempting to come back from their playoff defeat against Broad Run last year, took on the Martinsburg Bulldogs. Martinsburg is the defending AAA West Virginia State Champion, while Sherando was defeated in the first round of the playoffs last year. The Warriors went in as the clear underdogs, but were able to fight Martinsburg almost to a stalemate. An early touchdown by Martinsburg was all that was needed, as the Sherando offense simply could not put the ball in the endzone. Arrowhead Stadium was packed to the brim with fans from both sides eager to watch a great football game on a warm Friday night under the lights. The game was a defensive battle with great physicality on both sides, with the first and only score coming when Martinsburg’s quarterback ran into the endzone to put the bulldogs up. Sherando was forced to rely on many of their backups to step up, as players dropped like flies with cramps and had to be stretched out. At one point both of the Warrior’s quarterbacks were cramping up, as well as both of their running backs. The backups, particularly on defense, did a fantastic job filling in and holding Martinsburg to 7 points.
