Page 2 Frederick County Report January 18 24, 2012 Read all issues in their entirety FREE on www.FredCoReport.com
I would like to thank the Fred-
erick County Report for printing a
transcript of Mark Browns attack
on Mark Davis and the Middle-
town Planning Commission. I
also appreciate the Frederick
County Report giving me the op-
portunity to respond, a courtesy
which Mr. Brown denied.
Until the evening of January
9th, I had heard nothing of the
points in this attack; they did
not come up at the Council work
session of the previous week.
Tere is much that needs to be
said in response, and I will try to
be brief.
1. Simply because Mr. Brown
has decided a goal he favors is in
the best interest of the town does
not automatically make it so.
2. Te economic turndown
which stopped all residential
construction might be more
silver lining than it is storm
cloud; too many communities
that rushed into the recent hous-
ing bubble saw massive expansion
followed by an equally massive
number of foreclosures, result-
ing in what are known as zombie
neighborhoodssomething that
can hardly be called in the best
interest of any community.
3. Mr. Brown may claim he has
continuously stressed the need
for long range planning, but he
does not practice it. Long- term
planning involves careful and
objective consideration to all pos-
sible impacts of an action (such as
zombie neighborhoods). I have
repeatedly observed Mr. Brown
get carried away with enthusiasm
for an idea that has caught his
fancy, fy into a rage when some-
one disagrees with him over its
merits, and then either walk away
from the project entirely, or (more
usually) go out of his way to attack
or punish that individual (such
as Mr. Davis last Monday night).
Long-term planning requires
analytical rigor, not this mental
and emotional shallowness.
4. As for the Planning Com-
mission putting the boundary
adjustment at risk, Mr. Brown
is either willfully turning a blind
eye to reality or is lost in his
fantasies. Regarding the Com-
prehensive Plan, only three mi-
nor changes were forwarded to
Commission specifcally for this
project, which was handled by
then Commissioner Pete Hef-
fern in May of 2010. Since then,
no further requests for changes
have been forwarded to Com-
mission. Questions have been
asked by Commissioners when
we would receive these requests,
with the answer (or evasion) that
this would be later in the process.
Moreover, the recently approved
Land Use Plan for this project
specifcally calls for strict adher-
ence to the Comprehensive Plan;
had changes been considered
necessary, requests certainly
would have been communicated
before.
5. As for the Capital Improve-
ment Plan, Mr. Brown is again
less than accurate. It is true that
a request was forwarded to Com-
mission to create this document.
At the time, I said that such a doc-
ument requires a Comprehensive
Plan not in stages of revision, and
a budget that is not being changed
weekly by a mayor whose fancy
has been seized by a new scheme
for pinching pennies on one hand
and squandering thousands on
the other. Tis request was made
at the same time Commission
was in the middle of creating the
Highway Commercial ordinance,
the completion of which we had
been told was essential to the
boundary adjustment; Tempo-
rary Family Health Care Struc-
tures, which had been dropped
in our laps with a deadline (which
did not, it transpired, actually ex-
ist); evaluation of the proposed
Dollar General project; a review
of the Land Use Plan (also by
request of mayor and council);
and creation of bylaws, neces-
sitated by the confusion a couple
of months previously over pro-
cedure concerning a joint hear-
ing with Council regarding the
Truong/Carters Store project. It
was felt by Commission that we
had enough to work on; this was
communicated back to mayor
and council by Mr. Davis; and
a bare-bones Capital Improve-
ment Plan was drafted by Town
Manager Joan Roche, which was
reviewed by Commission. Tis
was in February and March of
2011. Nothing more was heard
from mayor or council about the
Capital Improvement Plan until
last Monday night.
I could go into further detail,
but I think this is enough to indi-
cate that the charges trumped up
by Mr. Brown against Mr. Davis
areas a generation younger than
mine succinctly puts itbogus.
Mr. Brown states that the Plan-
ning Commission failed to meet
their responsibilities in setting
priorities that reflect those of
(his) administration. A Planning
Commission is not a collection
of puppets or rubber stamps
appointed to tell the govern-
ing body what it wants to hear,
although that seems to be the
function Mr. Brown is demand-
ingparticularly since he insists
on replacing an individual who
has gone through certification
training with one who has not
and who, given past comments
on the subject, has no respect
for the principles and objectives
of state certification training
and the planning practices they
recommend. Moreover, it could
be more cogently argued that
regarding the proposed bound-
ary adjustment, it is the Steering
Committee for this project that
has failed in its responsibilities.
Tis has been convincingly ar-
gued by Mr. Davis at Commission
meetings; it has not been refuted,
and almost certainly his criticisms
played a part in Mr. Browns at-
tack last Monday night.
Mr. Davis was shamefully treat-
ed by Council last Monday night.
I wish the Frederick County
Report would do him the cour-
tesy of printing a transcript of his
response at that meeting, which
for an of-the-cuf reply to unde-
served and unmerited charges
was logical and well-considered.
I can, and will, say that the
Commissioners I have served
with have taken their respon-
sibilities and duties seriously.
All of them have worked with
diligence, application, and a high
degree of objectivity. None of
them have ever twisted or ma-
nipulated discussions to satisfy
a personal agenda. Besides Mark
Davis, these individuals of past
and present Commissions include
Dan Gill, James Hall, Peter Hef-
fern, Anita Holley, and Stephanie
Pendleton. Teir dedication, and
altruism, deserves far better than
Mr. Browns foolish and shallow
words, which as Chair I fnd as
insulting as they are ofensive. On
a personal level, I fnd his words,
and actions of last Monday night,
repellent.

crime of the week
Dress Warmly and Stay Dry
Adults and children should wear:
a hat, a scarf or knit mask to cover face and mouth, sleeves
that are snug at the wrist, mittens (they are warmer than
gloves), water-resistant coat and boots, several layers of
loose-ftting clothing.
Be sure the outer layer of your clothing is tightly woven,
preferably wind resistant, to reduce body-heat loss caused
by wind. Wool, silk, or polypropylene inner layers of clothing
will hold more body heat than cotton. Stay drywet clothing
chills the body rapidly. Excess perspiration will increase heat
loss, so remove extra layers of clothing whenever you feel too
warm. Also, avoid getting gasoline or alcohol on your skin
while de-icing and fueling your car or using a snow blower.
Tese materials in contact with the skin greatly increase
heat loss from the body. Do not ignore shivering. Its an
important frst sign that the body is losing heat. Persistent
shivering is a signal to return indoors.

Va. nail-biter could determine control of U.S. Senate
By Jonathan Lucci
Frederick County Report
Political experts are increas-
ingly coalescing around the idea
that when Virginia residents cast
their votes in November they may
well decide who controls the ma-
jority in the United States Senate.
Democrats look much stronger
in Massachusetts, where mod-
erate Republican Scott Brown
had been polling well in election
matchups until Democrat Eliza-
beth Warren got in the race and
raised an impressive amount of
money. If Democrats capture
that liberal leaning state, it will
make the margin Republicans
need to take control of the upper
chamber higher and many people
believe Virginia may be their best
bet.
Democrat Tim Kaines electoral
potential is tied irrevocably at this
point, at least to a certain extent,
to President Obama and national
issues and the economy. While
money and organization will
certainly matter, people wanting
to know who will win the race
for the Senate should pay careful
attention to the unemployment
rate, both statewide and nation-
ally. If the economy continues its
slow uptick into recovery, Kaines
popularity as governor and mod-
erate image on social issues will
make it difcult for former Sena-
tor George Allen to defeat him. If
the economy stays as it is, expect
a razor thin margin, with a lean
toward Allen. Any deterioration
in the economy and both Kaine
and President Obama will almost
certainly fail to win Virginia.
Meanwhile, Allen now has a
new opponent in the Republican
primary battle, though not one
who is expected to give him much
trouble in capturing the nomi-
nation. Delegate Robert Mar-
shall of Prince William county
entered the race on Monday, a
race already including several
other conservatives hoping to
run to the right of Allen. Allen
has expressed his respect for
Marshall, who did almost get the
Republican nomination for the
US Senate in 2008 when it was
decided by a convention. Al-
len, who has been planning this
comeback campaign for years, is
expected to raise large amounts
of money and is considered by
most to be conservative enough
that he shouldnt have a problem
from his right fank. His team
has already been running their
campaign as if he were already the
nominee, zeroing in on Kaine. At
the entrance to Allens website is
a video with the words, Obama
and Kaine. One and the Same.
Tis pretty much sums up what
Allen will be leading with in
most of his attacks on Kaine, the
former chair of the Democratic
National Committee.
As always, the presence of
President Obama just above
him on the ballot will be causing
continual headaches for Kaines
campaign, while pleasing Allens.
But again, their campaign will
be linked with the national cam-
paign. For example, President
Obamas healthcare law remains
unpopular in large swaths of
America and it was Virginias
Attorney General who sued the
Federal government over its
implementation. If whomever
the Republican nominee is, at this
point very likely Mitt Romney,
runs a large amount of TV ads
in Virginia hammering Obama
on healthcare it will only help
Allen, who will already be run-
ning his own. However, some
believe Romneys past actions as
Governor of Massachusetts when
he passed a similar healthcare bill
will make it hard for him to hit
Obama on his toughest issue and
he may focus more on jobs. Also,
the level to which Obamas cam-
paign can energize its supporters
in key Northern Virginia counties
will help decide Kaines fate. In
these, and countless other ways,
the critical election for US Senate
in our state must be interpreted
through the actions of President
Obama and his Republican ri-
vals.

Winchester
City ofcials consider many options for revitalizing downtown Winchester
By Jonathan Bennett
Frederick County Report

Focus on downtown.
Tat was the call to action Tues-
day night when the Winchester
City Council held a work session
in the Exhibit Hall on the fourth
floor of City Hall. The Council
was joined by the Economic De-
velopment Authority, the Plan-
ning Commission, the Old Town
Development Board and the
Parking Authority, each of which
have major public sector roles in
implementing the Councils goals
for revitalizing downtown Win-
chester.
The work session was called
to generate objectives, ideas and
inputs for the Citys efforts re-
garding Downtown Winchester.
Ofcials utilized previously pre-
sented information from both the
Comprehensive and Economic
Development Master Plans as well
as recent studies conducted by the
National Main Street Organiza-
tion for the Old Town Develop-
ment Board. Te Master Plan is
intended to clarify the Councils
vision for Winchesters economic
future, examining the City as a
whole while focusing on six cata-
lyst locations which the Council
believes are key sites for economic
growth and revitalization; one of
these is the area designated as
downtown.
Winchesters Old Town core,
with its traditional street grid,
abundant historical architecture
and long history of restoration
initiatives is considered one of the
most viable sections for improve-
ment. A number of eforts were
suggested, including establishing
a trolley system to connect select
areas to Old Town, improving
pedestrian crosswalks between
key sites and eliminating trafc
signals hanging from wires in
favor of steel signal arms. The
pedestrian mall running from
Piccadilly Street to Cork Street
has long been a central hub of
shopping, dining, retail space and
residential buildings and as such
is always taken into consideration
when planning any construction
and/or rezoning within its prox-
imity. Te Outdoor Mall is listed
as South Loudoun Street (even
though motor vehicles and even
bicycles arent permitted) and the
Council recognizes that popular
streets ought to be (and usually
are) surrounded by dense residen-
tial development. Te thinking is
that wherever residential growth
and revitalization is occurring, re-
tail will soon follow. Rarely does it
occur the other way around. Sim-
ply put, retailers probably arent
going to be attracted to a street
unless they hear cash registers
ringing, regardless of how much
public funding they may receive
and those same cash registers will
remain silent without a solid sur-
rounding residential market.
All this, City Hall realizes, wont
materialize overnight. Patience
and planning were the orders of
the evening, as both the Council
and the citizens of Winchester
must acknowledge that neighbor-
hoods evolve over time and the
quality and availability of residen-
tial spaces will determine what
kinds of retail tenants will lease
spaces. Typically, small businesses
and creative enterprises will seek
out lower-cost locations in which
to operate, followed by higher-end
retailers.
But therein, as the Bard will tell
us, lies the rub. Residential devel-
opment creates a larger customer
base for neighborhood-conscious
retailers: more people, more mon-
ey being spent, more businesses.
But while residential development
provides a necessary shot in the
arm for retailers, the Council
has to take into consideration
the available median income of
an area. Its this acknowledgment
that necessitates the construction
of proposed apartment complexes
and townhouse units that cater
to seniors and the low-to-middle
income brackets, such as those
that were discussed being built on
Loudoun, Braddock and Cameron
Streets.
While no fnal decisions were
made regarding immediate plans
for Downtowns future, the City
made headway in analyzing ex-
isting and potential markets and
individual site projects.

By Jonathan Lucci
Frederick County Report
Te air is flled with excitement in
the region as the Baltimore Ravens
head to the AFC championship
next week for an epic showdown
with Tom Brady and the New Eng-
land Patriots, whose passing attack
crushed the hype over Tim Tebow
last week. Now the Ravens and their
stifing defense will try to stop the
brilliant quarterback and hope their
own elite quarterback can outscore
the Patriots. Te matchup is one
widely expected, particularly after
the surprise defeat of the Pittsburgh
Steelers in the wild card race. Te
Ravens, Patriots, and Steelers domi-
nated the AFC this year and after
sufering a long string of injuries
the Steelers were obviously hobbled
going into the playofs.
Te Ravens hopes rest largely on
their defense, as usual. Tat defense
is highly ranked against both the run
and the pass and will face quite a
challenge this week as they head to
New England and face a quarterback
who at times seems unstoppable.
However, the Ravens will likely look
to their bitter rivals, the Pittsburgh
Steelers for a template of how to
defeat the Patriots. Before being
slowed by so many injuries, the
Steelers defeated the Patriots in a
game that caused many people to
predict a Super Bowl appearance
for the Black and Gold. Te Ravens
will try to stop Tom Brady and his
ofense from turning the game into a
shootout, and hope Joe Flacco rises
to the occasion.
Ravens fans have a lot to be hope-
ful about. While the Patriots are
undoubtedly prolific on offense,
especially when Brady really gets
into the zone, their defense is a big
disappointment. Tey rank last in
the league against their opponents
passing game and though they only
lost three games in the regular sea-
son, one of those was to Ben Roeth-
lisberger and the Steelers. Ravens
fans who believe Flacco to be in the
elite league of Roethlisberger should
take heart: he should have plenty
of opportunities to let the ball fy.
If the Ravens post a high number
of points, they should be in a good
position as their defense is perhaps
the best suited in the AFC to shut
down Brady.
A win and the Ravens are headed
to the promised land, to a Super
Bowl matchup between either the
San Francisco 49ers or the New York
Giants. Neither team is as athleti-
cally gifted as the Ravens, indeed it
would seem the Patriots with their
lackluster defense do not measure
up either. It has been said that the
Ravens are the most talented team
in the NFL. It now remains to be
seen how Joe Flacco will perform
as the pressure jacks even higher
up on Sunday and perhaps beyond.
He is no doubt a very skilled quar-
terback and budding leader, but his
lack of Super Bowl rings will always
separate him from Brady, Manning
and Roethlisberger. He can take a
giant stop toward eliminating that
diference on Sunday.

Frederick County loses a loyal K-9 partner
Work will not be the same without Max
By Rachel Hamman
Frederick County Report
On Sunday, Jan. 8, the Frederick
County Sherifs Ofce lost a loyal
and faithful partner in Max, a K-9
ofcer who worked on a daily basis
with Deputy John Pyles. Max was
a Belgian Malinois and was the
last K-9 the sherifs ofce had.
Max was 11 years old at the time
of his death. He died as a result of
natural causes.
Max was born in Holland. He
came to the sheriff s office in
November, 2003. Deputy John
Pyles trained Max and remained
his handler during his notewor-
thy career. Max participated in
a combination of hundreds of
tracking missions and searches.
He was certifed to work in nar-
cotics, tracking and bite-work.
Max was described as always
ready to begin his shift each day,
barking whenever the blue lights
went on.
Max worked with Deputy Pyles
every day of their illustrious ca-
reers together. Max also lived with
Pyles at his home in Bloomery,
WV, which made their eight-year
partnership even closer. Te FCSO
allowed Pyles to take an extra day
of from work in consideration of
the loss of Max but following his
break the deputy wanted to get
back in the swing of things and
stay busy. According to LeeAnna
Pyles, the Director of Public Safety
Communications at the FCSO, the
frst day back to work without Max
was difcult for Deputy Pyles.
Director Pyles says the Freder-
ick County Sherifs Ofce plans
to get another K-9 that will most
likely be trained by Deputy Pyles.
However, another deputy may
become the new K-9s handler.
Law enforcement departments
consider K-9s to be ofcers. An
assault on a K-9 is considered an
assault on an ofcer. On January
10, a man who struck a police dog
with a rife in Fayette County, West
Va, was shot in the arm by ofcers
who were trying to serve a warrant
on the man, according to reports.
An article by Amaury Murgado
featured in the December 19 edi-
tion of Police said, K-9 teams are
considered force multipliers. One
K-9 team can do the work of many
ofcers, which frees up ofcers for
other duties.
Max was cremated and will
receive a retirement badge from
the FCSO posthumously. He will
be greatly missed by Deputy Pyles,
as well as the Frederick County
Sheriff s Office and those who
knew him.

Bearly Believable
Having a party or looking for
a creative gift? Your first stop
might be Bearly Believable at 118
Elizabeth Drive in Stephens City.
Te store occupies the former site
of the Daily Grind in the Martins
parking lot, which means it has a
drive-through window!
Bearly Believable carries Boyds
Bears and a complete line of Me-
lissa and Doug educational art
supplies, puppets, costumes and
toys. Boyds Bears is the number
one collector line of bears in the
country. Te company originated
in Boyds, Maryland. Other col-
lectables at the store include San
Francisco music boxes and Kurt
Adler Santa Clauses.
Melissa and Doug art supplies
and toys are mostly wooden and
designed to last a lifetime. Te
educational lines are inexpen-
sive and creative. The toys are
designed to improve hand-eye
coordination and motor skills.
Bearly Believable has a whole
room designated to Melissa and
Doug and party supplies.
David Alexander of Round Hill
says that Bearly Believable has
saved him a number of times. I
gave my son a big party for his
eighteenth birthday. Ive never
thrown a big birthday party before
so I went to Bearly Believable for
ideas. Owner Chris Creager was
a great help. I purchased a big,
reusable sign that I will have at
graduation. She also suggested
glow sticks since we were hav-
ing a bonfire. They were a big
hit. I picked up some cool party
supplies. Ten at Christmas, my
daughter asked for a certain bear.
I had no idea what she wanted. I
again turned to Chris. Turns out it
was an Animal Land make-your-
own bear. Chris boxed up some
supplies, so I would have a present
under the tree. We plan to take
my daughter and her friends to a
bear-making pizza party at Bearly
Believable in the near future.
Is there a new baby in the fam-
ily? Bearly Believable has a large
selection of new baby announce-
ments and gifts. Or have Chris
make a special balloon design;
Chris went to school in Philadel-
phia to learn balloon art.
Bearly Believable is the sole
distributor of Dos Loco Grin-
gos Salsa, a salsa created by two
crazy, local guys. The salsa is
made by hand from scratch. Tere
are three diferent tastes available:
mild, hot, and debutante (very
mild.) Dos Locos won last years
salsa competition in Winchester.
Need some more gift ideas?
Try Wood Wick candles; the
Virginia-made candles sound
like a burning fre in addition to
smelling great. Another option is
Australian Soap Scent, a highly
fragrant, hand cut soap. Nancys
Candy, old-fashioned candy sticks
in twelve favors, adds a nice touch
to any gift.
Hand-crafted leather products,
lace ornaments and embroidered
tote bags and towels round out
the selection at Bearly Believable.
You may fnd some of the above at
your local school auctions; Bearly
Believable prides itself on its com-
munity involvement.
That drive-through window
comes in handy, especially around
the holidays. You can call the store
at (540) 868-1138 or visit them on
Facebook. Bearly Believable ofers
free gift wrapping and layaway.
You can order your purchase
in advance and pick it up at the
drive-through window.
Bearly Believable is offering
10% of throughout the store for
the month of January. Christmas
ornaments are 50% off, and all
other Christmas supplies are 25%
of.

with over 35 years of experience
between them. Tere are 21 indi-
vidual kennels with a television
available so your fond friend can
watch the Animal Planet. Tere
are two big rooms where the
doggy daycare dogs spend their
days romping, climbing on tables,
jumping on the Sponge Bob
childs bed and playing fetch.
If it sounds like bedlam, it can
be but it is a very efective bedlam.
Josh Madagan takes his dog Leela
to daycare fve times a week. Ac-
cording to Josh, If I left Leela at
home, she would go crazy and do
things like chew on the baseboard
molding. My wife likes to snuggle
but Leela is too hyper. Instead, we
bring her to Pawsitively Heaven
and she gets to play all day. By the
time we take her home, she is tired
and ready to snuggle.
Paul Recko, Teddys Daddy
agreed. Its great for Teddy not
to be indoors all day. We started
him at daycare as a puppy, so he
learned to socialize early. It made
him a diferent dog. Plus, he gets
a bath when he needs it.
Patches Mom, Paula Gould
says going to Pawsitively Heaven
is the highlight of Patches day.
My husband and I both work so
its great that Patches gets to have
so much fun during the day. He is
okay on Saturdays but by Sunday,
he is looking forward to going
back to Pawsitively Heaven.
Pat Schmettler, Sams Mom,
lives alone and depends on Pawsi-
tively Heaven to take care of Sam
while she is at work. Sam is a
very active dog. When he does not
come to daycare he gets crazy and
torments the cats. On the days he
is at Pawsitively Heaven, he comes
home and goes to sleep.
Being a small, family-owned
business allows special privileges.
Faye Loftons dog Beignet goes to
doggy daycare twice week and is
picked up at 7:30 a.m. at Fayes
ofce. Faye says the grooming is
excellent. Beignet gets a groom-
ing and brush-out once a week.
Beignet and Fayes ffteen year old
sheltie get special treatment when
Faye is away. Both dogs go home
at night with the owners and sleep
in their bed.
Pawsitively Heaven can be
reached at (540) 868-1082 or fnd
them on Facebook.
Platinum Salon
Tammy Garrison fnally opened
her own shop after over twenty
years in the business. She used to
do hair at Hair Art in Kernstown.
She now has her own shop, Plati-
num Salon at 379 Fairfax Pike in
Stephens City, otherwise known
as CBs Corner. Tammy and her
husband are completely renovat-
ing the space that used to house
Suzies Hair. The place looks
great.
Tammy provides the full range
of hair care including cuts, clips,
color, extensions and an innova-
tive hair straightening that lasts
up to fve months. Te Keratin
Complex natural smoothing treat-
ment straightening lasts months
longer than other straighteners.
Platinum Salon has a wide range
of extensions to choose from.
Tammy also has pro tools that
she uses in the shop, including a
teardrop curling iron that makes
fabulous curls as modeled by
Esther Albright, aka Miramar.
Platinum Salon is a Paul Mitchell
Focus Salon.
Platinum Salon also does mani-
cures and pedicures. There is
room in the shop for more stylists,
so self-starters please call!
Tammy has a very simple phi-
losophy when it comes to her
clients. She loves to make her
clients feel good by making them
look good. She loves clients that
like to look their best.
Tammy has been doing Esthers
hair for at least fve years. Esther
says her hair has never been
healthier. Before I found Tammy,
my hair was never cut even and
I was unhappy with the results.
Tammy listens to what you want
and then does it expertly. Tammy
takes care of all of my hair needs.
Esthers long locks looked terrifc
after being curled with the tear-
drop curling iron. Unlike a nor-
mal curling iron, the iron itself is
shaped like a teardrop and makes
an incredible curl.
Donald Wolfe, owner of the
Newtown Antique and Pawn
Shop, which is located next door
to the Platinum Salon is a frequent
customer. According to Don, Im
too old for long hair. So instead
he wanders next door. Don says
getting my hair cut at Platinum
Salon is fast, convenient and I love
the friendly service. After a quick
buzz cut, wash and a few smart
remarks, Don made his way back
to work.
Tammy and the other stylists
at the Platinum Salon can be
reached at (540) 869-1260.

VDOT Senseny Road
project to begin soon
Te Winchester Parks & Recreation Department was notifed on
January 3, 2012 that the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT)
will begin construction repairs to the Cork Street/Senseny Road Bridge
over Interstate 81 within 30 days. In the coming weeks, VDOT will place
trafc signs along Pleasant Valley Road, Cork Street and Senseny Road
notifying trafc of the upcoming construction project. VDOT antici-
pates that the project will be completed by August 10, 2012. Tis project
will afect trafc in and around Jim Barnett Park and trafc fow across
the bridge will be limited to one lane and controlled by temporary stop
lights. Tis will likely cause a backup of vehicles throughout the day.
During construction, the Bridgeforth Drive entrance into Jim Bar-
nett Park will be temporarily closed to thru trafc to ensure driver
and pedestrian safety. Access to and from Bridgeforth, Rotary, T-ball,
and Eagles Fields will be routed to the Cork Street/Maple Drive,
Pleasant Valley Road and Millwood Avenue entrances of the park.
VDOT contractors have been authorized to use a small portion of the
gravel parking lot near Bridgeforth Field and the BMX track as a con-
struction staging area. VDOT is aware of the public need for this lot
and will limit their use so it does not impact access to and use of this
parking lot. City ofcials have also requested that VDOT stop work
on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday of Apple Blossom weekend and
during other large events throughout the spring and summer months.
Tank you for your patience and understanding during this VDOT bridge
improvement project.

History
By Jonathan Bennett
Frederick County Report
Disclaimer: the author has nothing but
fondness for Winchester, surrounding
areas, and the Commonwealth of
Virginia.
When someone asks me where
Im from, I tell them West Virginia.
Ten I count the beats until they ask
me where in Virginia that is. This
can be a little disconcerting, sure,
but it afords me a weary smugness
on matters of origin that people not
from Dub-V dont, could never, legiti-
mately possess. Its also why Im glad
I, like everyone else, have a cellphone;
when a new acquaintance inevitably
poses such an asinine question, I can
pretend an important call is coming
in and hold my hand up in a gimme
a minute, gotta take this pantomime,
leaving the mouth-breathing inquisi-
tor slack-jawed and drooling, trying to
fgure out where exactly in the Com-
monwealth Im from. Let em Google
it. On their phone.
Enough ranting. Exercises in futility
build nothing but resentment.
Nonetheless, this gets me thinking,
where am I from? More importantly,
the people who would unwittingly
be the descendants of a snarky Win-
chester reporter whose opinions
entertain himself more so than oth-
erswhere are they from? If America
is a nation of immigrants (a dogma
I readily endorse) then my genetic
woodpile must have started being
stackedsomewhere else, a place
from which my ancestors departed
with a paddle and a prayer. Obviously,
they were confdent that what awaited
them would turn out to be far more
gratifying and rewarding than what-
ever it was they were leaving behind.
And while a better existence was
attainable after an uncertain journey
which occasionally took lives as the
price of admission, what awaited them
was, more often than not, hard work
and, sometimes, war.
So why this meditation on how I,
we, came to be here, in this corner of
time and place? Well, as it turns out,
on Saturday, January 21, the Museum
of the Shenandoah Valley (MSV) and
the Shenandoah Valley Genealogical
Society (SVGS) are hosting Heritage
Day at the MSV.
Cmon, thats as clever a segue as I
could muster.
At any rate, the day of lectures and
presentations will begin at 10 am and
run until 5 pm. No, not seven hours
straight; according to Deborah Hilty,
the curator of education at the Mu-
seum, there will be four lectures with
breaks in between. Te frst, at 10:30,
is Confederate Civilian Records
presented by Victor Dunn, a profes-
sional genealogist and proprietor of
Virginia Ancestry, followed by Te
Silent Woman: Finding Your Female
Ancestors presented by Barbara
Vines-Little, editor of the Magazine
of Virginia Genealogy and former
National Genealogical Society Presi-
dent. After that, youre on your own
for lunch, but theres a lot of places to
eat near the Museum, so thats pretty
much a non-issue.
Ten, at 2:15, archivists from the
National Archives in Washington,
D.C. Connie Potter and Katherine
Vollen will discuss Searching for
Union Soldiers in the National Ar-
chives. Te fnal presentation, Rare
Civil War Collectibles and Teir Rela-
tionship to Genealogy, is a collection
of various and sundry Confederate
books, letter, autographs, and other
Confederate Army dispatches.
There will also be a number of
tables and displays including Afri-
can-American Research, the Tomas
Balch Library, Te Warner Heritage
Society, and the Winchester-Frederick
County Historical Society, to name a
few.
All of the Heritage Day lectures and
presentations are free, while admit-
tance to the Museum galleries is $8 for
adults and $6 for children and seniors.
As always, general admission is free to
MSV members. For more information
on the Museum, visit www.shenando-
ahmuseum.org or call 662-1473.
Union or Confederate, you may have had family fghting in the Civil War

Te U.S. English version of Wikipedia, the popular free online ency-


clopedia and many other major websites including Google went black or
posted a notice Jan. 18 in protest of two bills foating through Congress that
critics, including Google co-founder Sergey Brin, have called censorship
tantamount to eforts employed by China and other dictatorships. SOPA,
the Stop Online Piracy Act, moving its way through the House and co-
sponsored by Va. Rep. Bob Goodlatte, who received major donations from
the bills supporters, and PIPA, the Senates Protect IP Act, will potentially
destroy the internet, according to leading technology advocates from both
parties. Supporters say the bills are designed to combat theft of American
intellectual property, a goal most major leaders of internet companies say
neither bill would accomplish. Te bills have received scant coverage from
the mainstream media, most of which are owned by companies in support
of the bills.

It was noted 20th-century poet T.S. Eliot
who made the following sage observation:
Some editors are failed writers, but so are
most writers.

The United States first railroad was


built in 1809 in Crown Creek, Pa., by a
man named Tomas Leiper. It had wooden
tracks.

When the now-classic television show


Gilligans Island frst aired in 1964, critics
were not impressed. Te review published
in the San Francisco Chronicle said, It
is difcult to believe that this show was
written, directed and produced by adults.
It marks a new low in the networks estima-
tion of public intelligence. Te show went
on to air for three seasons and spurred
three TV movie sequels.

Believing that beards and long hair were


too easy for enemies to grab, Alexander the
Great ordered his soldiers to shave their
faces and heads before going into battle.

You hear a lot about the isolationism


of Switzerland -- the country thats always
neutral in any confict -- but you might be
surprised to learn how serious they are
about it. Te countrys system of roads is
mined in 2,000 places and can be demol-
ished in the space of 10 minutes.

Are you doing your share? If youve had


a beer today, youve contributed to the
approximately 90 million cans of the brew
that are consumed by Americans every
day.

When the territory that later became the


state of Alaska was purchased from Russia
in 1867, the cost came out to about 2 cents
per acre.

Its not clear why, but it seems that fne


hair grows faster than coarse hair.

Tought for the Day: My father taught me


to work, but not to love it. I never did like to
work, and I dont deny it. Id rather read, tell
stories, crack jokes, talk, laugh -- anything
but work. -- Abraham Lincoln

Winter No Excuse
Not to Exercise
Are you tired of winter? Youre not
alone. Too many of us have cocooned as
temperatures have dropped, often not
leaving the house for days or more.
We need to get moving, one way or the
other, and here are some ways we can:
Look for exercise programs on TV,
especially if you have cable. Sit and Be
Fit is a show with exercises for seniors
and others with physical limitations.
All the exercises are done while seated.
Check the website (www.sitandbeft.org)
to learn where the show airs on public
television. If you have On Demand, look
at the Exercise TV section for other work-
out shows. Look for the walking in place
programs or those geared to seniors.
Check into Tai Chi or QiGong classes
geared to seniors. Tese are gentle, fow-
ing movements that can be done even
sitting in a chair if balance is an issue.
(Theyll help with strengthening core
muscles, which actually can help with
balance problems.)
If transportation is a concern (or if
you dont like driving in winter) ask if
the senior center has a van that can pick
you up for classes. Parks and recreation
also is a potential source of rides, as is
social services. Youre more likely to go
to your class if someone is coming to
pick you up!
If youre in an area with snow and ice
(but are otherwise sturdy on your feet),
look for indoor places to walk. Schools
sometimes open their halls after hours
and indoor malls open early in the
morning.
If youre determined to walk for exer-
cise, look into grips that attach to shoes.
Search the Internet for Stabilicers and
ask if your local shoe store can order
something similar.

Cast-Iron Bank
Q:
I have a Lion Hunter cast-
iron bank that I believe is
quite old. I found it in a thrift shop
several years ago and want to find
out more about it and its possible
value. Lynn, Sun Tan, Ariz.
A:
The Lion Hunter bank was
patented in 1911, designed by
Charles A. Bailey of Cobalt, Conn.,
and manufactured by J and E Stevens
Company, Cromwell, Conn. A coin is
placed in front of the cocking device
of the gun, when a lever is pressed,
the hunter fires, the coin strikes a lion
and falls into a receptacle below.
If an original, this is quite a valuable
bank ranging in value from a low of
about $3,000 to a high of $35,000,
depending on condition. Be aware
that this bank has been reproduced
and some of the reproductions have
been aged to look old. One of the bet-
ter references is the Official Guide to
Mechanical Banks by Dan Morphy,
published by House of Collectibles.
***
Q:
I have an older fishing reel in
its original box. It has a beau-
tiful design. How I can determine
its value? George, Albuquerque,
N.M.
A:
Many collectors have become
hooked on fishing collectibles.
The original interest was generated
by old lures and some reels and rods.
It later expanded to include advertis-
ing memorabilia and miscellaneous
items. Recent prices include a 1931
catalog from the Shakespeare com-
pany, $150; a Heddon Lure, No. 100,
$350; a Mitchell reel, model No. 70,
$65; and a rare 1931 limited edi-
tion of The Compleat Angler by
Arthur Rackham and Izaak Walton,
$3,000. One of the better references
is Fishing Collectibles: Rods, Reels,
Creels by Russell E. Lewis (Krause,
$29.99).
***
Q:
I have a 1929 Majestic
console radio in walnut.
Although it has a few scratches,
the radio works and it is original. I
paid $450 for it at an antique shop
several years ago, and wonder if
its worth more than I paid. Ken,
Providence, R.I.
A:
Your radio currently is valued
in the $150 to $200 range.
Majestic radios are fairly common
and not as desirable with collectors
as many of the more popular brands,
such as Philco and Zenith.

Cat-Proofing
Your House
DEAR PAWS CORNER: A
friend of mine recently commented
that when she brought her new cat
home last year, she immediately
had to put protective caps on all the
electrical outlets because the cat
kept trying to stick her claws into
them. Do cats really do that? Mine
doesnt. Sarah in Burlington, Vt.
DEAR SARAH: Its not unheard of,
as cats are curious, like to explore and
often find certain things fascinating
(while being totally uninterested in
other things, like the expensive cat-
nip-infused designer mouse I bought
for my cat last Christmas. Not that
Im bitter about that).
Because of this, and because no one
is ever totally sure what a cat will
take a keen interest in, cat-proofing
the areas in which your cat roams is
essential. Make sure it cant access
the places where you store cleaning
supplies or human food (some of
which can be poisonous to cats). Put
houseplants, particularly those from
the lily family, out of reach or even
better, out of the house as they
can be deadly to cats when ingested.
Dont let the cat access areas like the
garage, workshop or the utility room.
Be aware of where your cat is before
you open the front door, so that it
doesnt slip outside.
Because cats tend to be much more
low-maintenance than dogs, most pet
owners dont think much about tak-
ing precautions keep their cats away
from dangerous areas. Do whats
necessary to keep them safe from
potential hazards.
