A record stock of sticks Cumberland man’s collection of walking sticks may land him in the famed Guinness Book By Emily Darrell

B

illy Sutton isn’t the tallest man in the world, nor is he the shortest. He hasn’t run the fastest mile, grown the longest beard, or traveled the greatest distance with a pool cue balanced on his chin. (That honor, for your information, belongs to New York’s Ashrita Furman, who set the record at 1,668 meters.) But Sutton says he expects a call from Guinness World Records any day now, telling him he’s been granted the recognition he deserves. So what does Mr. Sutton have that you and I don’t? A collection of 932 walking sticks. Sutton, 73, and a lifelong Billy Sutton’s collection of 932 walking sticks, gathered from around the world, was described as “magnificent” by one woman who saw it.

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

Spring means new life – and a fresh embrace of the garden always the perfect time to celebrate new life—and the small patch of Earth I call home is awash in color: dove-white blossoms fleck the dogwood trees, and the hot pink flash of color bursting forth from my azaleas never fails to catch my eye whenever I happen past the kitchen window. The rose bush we planted years ago, now almost twice as hen you tall as I am, has not offered anything yet—but those get right up blooms are surely right down to it, is there around the corner.

were there when we moved in to the house and have done just fine without any intervention from me. The rose bush? Let’s just say the Lord must be looking out for that one. The one I planted right next to it, oddly, withered away within weeks, as have countless other shrubs, herbs and flowering plants. (I had some luck with a patch of mint once—and was feeling good about it— until a true gardener mentioned to me that planting a seed and growing mint was akin to falling out of a boat and hitting water.) Fortunately, what I lack in gardening ability I have been known to make up for in unshakable enthusiasm. Case in point: The trail of lifeless plants I’ve left in my wake over the years has done little to deter me from decid-

ing that this, this, will be the year that I finally manage to triumph over my naturally black thumb. After consulting with a garden-savvy friend (everything he touches blooms) I have decided that this is the year I will learn to grow vegetables. I am starting small— just a few tomato plants, some peppers and some squash—but already dreaming big. I have already begun imagining all the things I can grow—and eventually eat—if this works out. I am getting ahead of myself, of course. To twist an old adage a bit, I probably shouldn’t count my peppers before they sprout. But, as I said, there is just something about spring that brings to mind new life— maybe even a newspaper editor reborn as a gardener.

“It’s really a magnificent collection. He’s got a story behind every one of them, I think.” Cumberland Commissioner of Revenue Anita French, on Billy Sutton’s record-setting collection of walking sticks. see Sticks > 2 resident of Cartersville, has walking sticks whittled out of wood, wrought in silver, and carved from ivory. One has a top that can be unscrewed and doubles as flask. Another contains a sword. Some of the walking sticks, or canes – call them what you will; he has no preference – Sutton fashioned himself. Others he picked up at yard sales or flea markets. Sutton began his collection about 25 years ago, when a man whose home he was working on – Sutton once ran a painting business – gave him his first cane. “He said he didn’t have no use for it, and I liked it, so he gave it to me,” Sutton says. When the collection grew too large to keep in the house, he moved it into a specially designed outbuilding, next to the garage. Though Sutton says the appearance of a cane isn’t nearly as important as whether or not it “feels good in your hand,” the visual impact of his collection is striking. Themes include African art, sailors, dragons, Jesus, Santa Claus, snakes, the US Presidents, and villages in Germany. (Many of Sutton’s canes are adorned with bits

of German memorabilia. His wife is from Germany and he was stationed there with the 82nd Airborne Division in the early 60’s.) “It’s certainly unusual,” Anita French, Cumberland’s Commissioner of Revenue, says of Sutton’s collection. French, along with Cumberland’s Sheriff, Darrell Hodges, and Bill Osl, former Chairman of the Board of Supervisors, were entrusted with the task some months ago of counting Sutton’s walking sticks in order to verify for Guinness that he does, in fact, have the number he claims to have. Though Sutton knows of a man in Canada who has 600-and-some-odd canes – all wooden – he believes he possesses more than anyone on Earth. “It’s really a magnificent collection,” French says. “He’s got a story behind every one of them, I think.” You can ask Sutton what his wife thinks of his collection and he’ll tell you: “She can take it or leave it.” But ask him if he ever walks with a cane and he might look at you funny and shake his head. “No,” he’ll say with a little laugh, like you just asked him something kind of strange. “Not yet.” “I hope not,” he’ll add.

Patriot Day Festival fast approaching Contributed report

Cumberland Patriot Day is in the final stages of preparation for the 9th annual Patriot Day Festival to be held on April 21, 2012. The first call for American Independence was made from Effingham Tower, across from the Cumberland Courthouse by Carter Henry Harrison in April 1776. Each year, Cumberland celebrates this commemorative part of history in the form of a re-enactment of that speech and a festival. This festival allows people from everywhere to come together for a day of fun and fellowship and also allows people to have the opportunity to meet the family of Mr. Carter Henry Harrison. Opening ceremonies will begin at 10:00 a.m. on the Courthouse lawn and the parade will immediately follow opening ceremonies and will go to the school where the festival will be held. Steve Bassett will be performing live on the outdoor stage from 11:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. and there will be a mechanical bull, orbitron, dunk tank, obstacle course, bounce houses and slides for children of all ages to enjoy. There will also be various indoor stage activities during the day such as Ashley Russell – Hula girl, Longwood Belly Dancers, Cumberland Cheering squad, Cumberland Step team, Allen’s Mill – Bluegrass music, and more. Admission is Free and applications are still being taken for craft vendors, food vendors, antique car show entries, and informational booths. The festival is seeking additional volunteers that would like to be a part of the committee and help the day of the event. For an application, please visit the website at www.cumberlandpatriotday.org or call Stephany Johnson or Corrie Hurt at 804-4923251.

Farm Bureau awards open doors for students For the past decade, scholarships given by Cumberland organization have helped young people pursue careers in agriculture By Roslyn Ryan

Now in its tenth year, the Cumberland Farm Bureau Scholarship Program has awarded over $40,000 to County students studying toward careers in agriculture. And, if you want to see an

example of those funds being put to good use, Cumberland native Taylor Scott is a good person, as well as his sister Mary Ellen, to talk with, both have received the annual award more than once. Scott, a graduate of Fuqua School and the recipient of multiple Farm Bureau scholarship awards, earned a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science from Virginia Tech before landing his current job as the Quality Control Supervisor for the meat production facility at James River Correctional Center. It’s a tremendous responsibility by all accounts, but one Scott says he was prepared for thanks to both his background and his education. Between growing up around— and eventually becoming involved

in—the poultry and cattle operations of his father and uncle, and the skills he was able to develop in school, “I had a wide base of knowledge to draw on.” Scott said. Scott says he had initially thought he would go to work for the Extension Service after graduation. Unfortunately, with Extension offices around the state facing deep funding cuts, that plan quickly fell by the wayside. Thankfully, Scott says, he stumbled upon the James River opening on the Internet. As happy as he is with his job at the facility, it seems his supervisors are even happier to have him there. Agribusiness Manager Frank Baber III says Scott has done an “outstanding” job since coming

16TH ANNUAL

on board nearly three years ago and couldn’t help but joke that the Extension Service’s loss has been James River Correctional Center’s gain. Quality Assurance Manager of the Meat and Milk Production Operations, Carolyn Peterson is equally delighted with Scott. “He’s just a real asset to the team, and to the whole operation,” she said. Dr. Scott Newton, Chair of the Farm Bureau Scholarship Committee, is understandably pleased with the way things have turned out for Taylor Scott. He and the Scholarship Committee also take a certain degree of pride in just how many other students—nearly 20 so far— have been able to take advantage of the program. “To

date,” he pointed out, “every student who has applied for a scholarship to pursue an agricultural career has received financial support from the Cumberland Farm Bureau Board.” Throughout the Commonwealth, about three-fourths of the County Farm Bureau Offices offer career scholarship programs. In addition to awards for college students, funding is available for technical training and vocational courses to improve farm related skills. Any current Cumberland County students who would like more information about the Farm Bureau Scholarships are asked to contact the Farm Bureau Office at (804) 492 – 4621. The 2012 application deadline is April 30.

Cumberland students: ‘If I had a hammer’ Contributed report

On April 3, 2012, fourth graders at Cumberland Elementary School, as part of the Perry Wilson “If I Had a Hammer” program, helped a group of Hampden-Sydney students build a house. The goal of the event was to “enhance student learning by providing a real-world exercise. . .that utilizes hands-on fun to engage and excite children about education and learning” and to give students a sample of the lessons in the “If I Had a Hammer” curriculum. This curriculum targets math skills such as fractions and shows students real world applications for math. Students use a measurement tool known as “The Big Inch,” which uses measurement to teach students how to add and subtract frac-

tions. In addition to teaching applied mathematics, the students learn other 21st Century skills such as collaboration, problem solving, and leadership as well as principals of safety. The program is cross curricular, so students learn concepts of science, social studies, and communication. The division will be instituting the Hammer curriculum into summer school this year. The Hampden-Sydney students who worked with the build are part of The Center for Entrepreneurship and Political Economy. By gaining corporate sponsorships and administering the Hammer program, these college students gain valuable experience in running a business. Along the way they find time to interact with the students.

The Southside Virginia Regional Technology Consortium (SVRTC) annually hosts an award program to recognize school divisions, teachers, and other staff members that have consistently implemented technology to increase student achievement, enhance employee productivity, and fostered economic development in the region. Several staff members of Cumberland County Public Schools received awards. A teacher from each school division received the Technology Teacher Award. The teacher from Cumberland was Mrs. Stephanie Lennon, who routinely incorporates technology into her high school Spanish classes, using an online learning system to help deliver instruction. An Instructional Support Award was also given to a staff member in a supportive role who advances a school division’s technology environment through providing crucial instructional technology support. The winner of this award for the division was Mrs. Gail Doss, who helps support the reading program at the elementary school through her use of technology. A staff member from each division was also recognized for the Technology Support Award. This was presented to a technology support person who provides crucial technical support to the division that allows all stakeholders to accomplish their educational goals. The division honor went to Mr. Charles Motter, assistant principal at the middle school for his work with teachers in using ActivBoards, Interactive Achievement, Observation 360, as well as other technologies, both hardware and software. Cumberland Superintendent Amy Griffin received the Technology Leadership Award, which was presented to only one person from the entire SVRTC. This award recognizes an administrator, educator, or community member who advances technology in the educational setting. Dr. Griffin received the award for using technology to improve student achievement; to foster an environment of collaboration in the school division, in the region, and in the state; to lobby for education; to communicate with the public; to encourage economic development in the region; and to support the Go Green Initiative.

CALENDAR

ACADEMY OF PEDIATRICS RELEASED NEW GUIDELINES CALLING FOR CHILDREN TO BE SCREENED FOR HIGH CHOLESTEROL BETWEEN AGES 9 AND 11 AND AGAIN BETWEEN 17 AND 21, REGARDLESS OF FAMILY HISTORY. THE GOAL IS TO PREVENT HEART DISEASE, WHICH STARTS EARLY IN LIFE. Although naturally produced by the body, cholesterol can become elevated due to a person’s diet or genetic makeup. When levels are too high, cardiovascular disease (heart attacks, strokes and peripheral artery disease, etc.) can result. Many people think high cholesterol is an adult problem, but studies have suggested for decades that heart disease starts long before that. “The change in recommendations is a culmination of literature that dates back to studies performed during the Korean and Vietnam wars,” said Mark Townsend,M.D., pediatric and adult congenital cardiologist at Centra’s Stroobants Heart Center. “Young men who were otherwise healthy and who unfortunately died in combat had autopsies performed and were found to have precursors of coronary artery disease. Since that time, there have been fantastic studies ... that have set the

“I personally have never met resistance to performing screening, aside from fear of doing a blood draw. There have been families that were reluctant to initiate treatment, but there again I have never been in a position where the family has refused treatment when treatment was clearly indicated based on the guidelines.” When asked why he is so passionate about making sure kids are screened for high cholesterol, Dr. Townsend talked about a teenage boy who came to his office with liver disease, high cholesterol and high The decision by the American Academy m of Pediatrics to recommend screening of all children fo f r high cholesterol is a direct refl f ection on the obesity epidemic. blood pressure brought on by obesity. “Stories like that, where I have “Over three office visits, he been able to help a child or adolescent chose to make an effort by beginning to change their life goals and plans, are so walk for 30 minutes at a time five days per overwhelmingly gratifying that it is hard week,” Dr. Townsend said. “He then cut not to be passionate about what I am back his caloric intake, and started walking blessed to be able to do.” one hour a day.

stage for understanding the implications of high cholesterol in children as it pertains to the risk of developing lifelong heart disease.” Past guidelines, released in 2009, recommended that only children with risk factors be screened and that they be screened just once between ages 2 and 10. The change in guidelines (screening all children, regardless of family history or other risk factors, and doing it twice) is a “direct reflection on the obesity epidemic,” Dr. Townsend said. If a child does have high cholesterol, Dr. Townsend’s first step is to prescribe lifestyle changes, such as weight loss, dietary changes and exercise, rather than jumping straight to medication. Sometimes, however,medication is needed. “It is unusual to need to start medication as the front-line treatment measure, but it is not at all unusual for children to fail lifestyle modification and subsequently need to start medication,” he said. So far, Dr. Townsend said, parents have been “overwhelming receptive” to the new guidelines. “Many families are acutely aware of the burden cardiovascular disease carries ... and we all know someone who has died from heart disease,” he said. “As such, families clearly want to do the right thing for their children.

Ruritan Club announces end of much-loved 4th of July celebration Contributed report

After 30+ years of hosting the local 4th of July Celebration, the Cartersville Ruritan Club has regretfully calls an end to this longstanding tradition. “We’ve had many successful years, first on the Greens overlooking the James River and more recently at the Club’s location in Cartersville on Route 45. For many years, this has been the biggest event in Cartersville and Cumberland County. When we lost the Greens four years ago, we were worried that the event would suffer. To our surprise, the 1st year was a success and people enjoyed the change in venue. Unfortunately with the troubled economy and sur-

rounding counties now hosting their own celebrations, our show now has competition. Add to that, the licensing, permits, and insurance costs now needed to host a fireworks display, and it has become cost prohibitive to continue this much loved tradition” says President Norman Lewis. The Club promises to host other smaller events throughout the year starting with a “Baked Potato Social” to be held onSaturday, March 17th at Cartersville Fire House. Additional fundraisers will include the annual Community Birthday calendar, Golf Tournament, and Raffles. The Club House and tents for outside events is also available to rent by the general public.

Lewis is encouraging members to “think outside of the box and let’s try some new things. Both the club and the community will truly miss the 4th as a time o fgathering of old friends and family reunions. We want to express our heartfelt thanks to all of the folks, members and friends alike, who came year after to year to work the event as well as to enjoy it.” Special recognition goes to the Cartersville Rescue Squad, CumberlandSheriff’s Department, Carterville Fire Department and the band Southern Ambition; as well as the following businesses who faithfully supported this event – Blanton and Pleasants, Mo-Johns, Lacey’s, and Dunn Gas –many par-

Libraries all over Virginia will hold a Snapshot Day in April to collect information, photos and patron comments that illustrate the impact that Virginia libraries make in their communities every day. In Cumberland, Snapshot Day is April 18. Snapshot Virginia is a Virginia Library and Library of Virginia project. The goal is to use collected data, such as how many people use the library, use computers, attend programs, etc. as well as candid photographs and comments, to demonstrate how essential libraries are within our communities. Virginia’s libraries are busier than ever these days, with people coming in to check out books, use computers, look for jobs and attend the many programs our libraries offer. All across the Commonwealth, libraries are the cornerstones of their communities, places where people come together to visit, learn and share ideas. On April 28, 2012, we will capture a slice of life in Cumberland’s library. Snapshot Day encourages library patrons to comment on what their library means to them. Please visit Snapshot Virginia.or to find out more about this exciting project. Better yet, visit Cumberland County Public Library on April 18 and be a part of Snapshot Day.
