Humane Society’s Spring Rabies Clinic on Sunday, June 3 dog tags. There is a nominal charge which is less than you would normally pay elsewhere. Pet owners should also spay and neuter their pets. Each day over 70,000 puppies and kittens are born in the U.S. As a result, every year 4-6 million animals are euthanized because there are no homes for them. The Warren County shelter handles more animals than the shelter in Loudoun County which

has twice our population! If more people alter their pets and strays in our county, the shelter would be less crowded and the animals that are

there would have a better chance of finding homes. Pets can also be brought to the shelter every other Wednesday and the staff working in

Marcy Gallo and her friend Roscoe

By Ken Thurman Warren County Report I spoke with Marcy Gallo the Kennel Team Coordinator at the HSWC animal shelter. She runs the Intake office at the shelter which is open from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. six days a week and is only closed on Wednesdays. While there I witnessed firsthand the love and care given to animals brought in. One cat that was brought in (thanks to a caring citizen who found him) looked like he had been in a battle. Marcy immediately arranged an appointment with one of the local vet-

erinarians and had one of the other staff members whisk the cat away while simultaneously taking care of two kittens that had been dropped off earlier. The action seemed nonstop as another couple arrived with a stray cat and three kittens. Somehow, Marcy found time to tell me about the Annual Spring Rabies Clinic coming up on June 3rd at the shelter. The event held twice a year has helped between 150-300 pets each time it was held in the past. Money saving services include: one and three-year rabies vaccinations, micro-chipping, nail trimming, ear cleaning, and county

“It seems whenever I try to get assistance they say, ‘Well, you work – you’re okay’ or ‘You’re married, you don’t qualify.’ ” – Judy Titchnell on seeking financial assistant to defer $36,000 cost of prosthetic legs

Community

When the social ‘safety net’ fails the best of us Why does working and living through disabilities disqualify you from aid?

Judy Titchnell and hubby John, a retired coal miner, on their porch.

A childhood photo of Judy in West Virginia before she lost her legs to spina bifida by age 14.

By Roger Bianchini Warren County Report

pre-conception folic acid treatments by the mother and a recently-developed intrauterine surgery still being studied for its viability to reduce impacts of the disease were yet to be imagined. Consequently after years of working with braces to combat increasing problems with not only her back, but her legs, a doctor she credits with saving her life, Justice Pickett, presented her with a choice he told the young girl must ultimately be hers to make – amputation of both legs to maximize her long-term prospects for survival. With her options and prospects fully explained, Judy made her choice and after two separate surgeries,

would live her life from age 14 on, not with braces on failing legs, but without legs above the knees. But Judy continued to show the fighting spirit she carried through attempts to continue her schooling despite increasing difficulty in getting around with braces, then crutches. While she was forced to eventually drop out due to her immobility and the lack of any accommodation for such disabilities during that era – she later got her GED at age 36 – she married at 17 and gave birth to a daughter two year later. Daughter Kim, who came to this area before her parents, continues to be a great support to her parents.

Sometimes you come across people who just make you shake your head at the thought of our own day-to-day complaints about how life is just not treating us right. For this reporter, Judy Titchnell is such a person. Born the same year as me – that’s classified information for both of us – Judy has faced physical challenges most of us will fortunately never encounter, and rarely even imagine raining down on us – AND she has done it with a spirit, optimism and refusal to accept that her life should be profoundly limited by

those challenges. Titchnell explained to us she was born with spina bifida. Wikipedia describes spina bifida as “a developmental congenital disorder caused by the incomplete closing of the embryonic neural tube. Some vertebrae overlying the spinal cord are not fully formed and remain unfused and open. If the opening is large enough, this allows a portion of the spinal cord to protrude through the opening in the bones … Spina bifida can be surgically closed after birth, but this does not restore normal function to the affected part of the spinal cord.” When Judy was a young girl growing up in West Virginia in the 1950s,

But in-house support comes from Judy and husband John’s 21-year-old grandson Joshua. – “He’s our shining light,” Judy beams. Husband John, now 76, is a retired coal miner who was laid off when West Virginia began closing mines, especially union mines, Judy notes. They moved to the Winchester area in 1987 and re-located to Warren County about 11 years ago. John is disabled now and is on oxygen full-time after years in the mines. But he still offers a hand around the house and helps his wife in and out of the converted hand-control van that has helped her maintain the ability to commute and work. Judy notes that she learned to drive a stick-shift despite her handicap – “I’m pretty proud of that” – but now is able to get around with a scooter and the used hand-control converted van she got through the help of the Consumer Services Fund two years ago. When the family came to Virginia looking for work, Judy first got a job at Good Will in Winchester, off Route 7. Good Will later helped her find employment at Lowe’s in 2005 and she continues to work there as a phone operator. However, due to increasing issues with her health, related to old and ill-fitting prosthetic legs, she had to go part time last year and eventually lost her insurance coverage. Judy had to stop wearing the now 20-year-old prosthetic legs, which she has found no financial assistance to help her replace at a cost of $18,000

Editor, I am writing this letter to make the public aware of the danger to people walking on the new trail at Front Royal Country Club. Someone is going to get hurt, if not killed. Then the county is going to get sued for putting a walking trail in the middle of a golf course! If you are not familiar, the trail

runs along the 7th and 8th fairways and is in play from six different tee boxes. There is a blind spot from the 17th tee where golfers can’t see someone walking directly at them for over 200 yards. My girlfriend, who plays golf, was jogging in that exact spot when a golf ball sailed right by her. There are numerous families with small children on that path everyday. They have no idea that they are in potential danger – most of them don’t seem to know

ALONG THESE LINES: Do All Dogs Go to Heaven? By Nick Thomas

My mother possessed the gift of hospitality. All who knew her marveled at her remarkable ability to charm people with spontaneous generosity and kindness. But her benevolence wasn’t limited to humans. She had the greatest affection for animals too, especially the many dogs that inhabited our home over the years. She raised fox terriers, and they were as much part of the family as any of us. So too was our only cat, who outlived many of the dogs and, for that matter, quite a few neighbors as well. Throughout her life, mom remained utterly convinced that she would one day be reunited with her earthly menagerie in heaven. With the hint of a smile on her face, and just a faint mist in her eyes, she would remind us every so often to include a box of dog treats in her final resting place. She said it was essential to be equipped with the dogs’ favorite snacks when she was reunited with her departed canine friends in heaven. But not everyone would share my mother’s conviction on the fate of animals. In fact, it’s an issue that biblical scholars have long debated: do animals go to heaven? Such disputes often lead to scripture-slinging, with both sides plucking corroborating verses from the bible to support their views. Perhaps wise, old Solomon, in Ecclesiastes 4:16, best summed up the uncertainty with a question: “Who knows if the spirit of man rises upward and if the spirit of the animal goes down into the earth?” The existence of a heavenly zoo can be summed up by these basic questions: Will dogs (and presumably cats, too) sprout wings and fly off into the afterlife? What fate awaits pet rabbits and hamsters - equally beloved by their owners? Suppose all animals make it to the Promised Land. Does this mean we can look forward to an eternity with roaches, mosquitoes

and flies? As if dying wasn’t bad enough, you’d think we could at least get a reprieve from pests on the other side - it could hardly be called Paradise if bugs came along as well. The preachers tell us that the key to unlocking the Pearly Gates is redemption. But unlike us humans, who are apparently awash with wickedness, animals have never sinned. (Note that being a “naughty boy” on grandma’s priceless, antique Persian rug does not constituent a biblical sin.) So the question of redemption - and being judged accordingly - simply does not seem to apply to animals. Along these lines, many theologians would argue that because animals lack a rational soul, this separates them (the animals, not the theologians) from humans, and they are therefore destined to be left behind as mere earthly memories. Moreover, there appears to be no significant biblical reference to animals having a spirit which will exist beyond physical life. My mother, of course, entertained none of “that nonsense,” as she called it. She was utterly convinced that all her dogs would enter a kingdom that would be free from fleas, worms, baths, thunderstorms, and vets. And, she would say, if any creatures were deserving of a special place of eternal peace and comfort, after giving a lifetime of unconditional devotion and affection, it would be her beloved dogs. Mom left us several years ago. It comforted her to believe that a canine welcoming committee would be waiting patiently to greet her, to experience her hospitality one more time – me too.

what planet they are on. At least once a round, a group of people will walk right up the path, never look to see if anyone is hitting balls at them. They walk by talking loudly, occasionally picking up our golf balls. They have no clue how you are supposed to act on a golf course. There was some real brainpower at work when the county came up with this idea. As stupid as it was to put in this path, you would think that they would at least be smart

enough to put up ample signage to cover their behinds. Bottom line – people don’t know, golfers can’t see, and it’s only a matter of time until someone gets really hurt. Then let’s see who gets sued. Heck, I’m ready to every time I play out there – for emotional stress. Sincerely, Toby R. Keller, Concerned Golfer Front Royal

Story clarifications Do to production issues, several stories that appeared in our last issue ended abruptly without carryover of concluding words or sentences, and in one case without a headline. The most minor of those instances occurred in the story on town-county issues surrounding a request for central town watersewer to a 13-unit subdivision in Harmony Hollow on page 25. The words “pointed out” were missing to conclude that story. The final sentence should have read, “Unlike areas designated for Urban Development Areas and more clustered development, West’s property is not adjacent to similar existing development, neighbors opposing the extension of central water-sewer to a one-acre subdivision have pointed out.” On page 32, the story on Mayor Darr’s reaction to the May 1 election lacked both a headline and several concluding paragraphs. “Mayor Darr celebrates re-election, looks forward,” was the missing headline. The story ended mid-sentence, “I do feel that …” The remainder of that story is printed below, including the paragraph in which the broken sentence occurred: “The charter changes in general

are important but there are several other changes that need to be made that are just as important. I do feel that (STORY ENDS) the elections need to remain non-partisan just so you can continue to promote quality candidates and participation for people interested in serving their communities.” And finally, how does he view the re-aligned council he will lead as of July? “I feel that the new council will be effective in moving the town forward, both Mr. Tewalt and Hrbek bring extensive knowledge and past experience to the council. I have worked with them both in the past and look forward to working with them again. Mr. Funk is a young man new to the political environment and should bring a fresh set of eyes with new ideas and a fresh perspective. With the addition of the new members and the three remaining council members Mr. Tharpe, Sayre, and Parker, I feel we have the potential of getting some things accomplished as long as we all stay focused on the common goal of doing what is best for the citizens of Front Royal now as well as making decisions that will benefit the town in the future.” We apologize for any confusion these mistakes caused.

The first remote intended to control a television was developed by Zenith Radio Corporation in 1950. The remote, called “Lazy Bones”, was connected to the television by a wire. A wireless remote control, the “Flashmatic”, (above) was developed in 1955 by Eugene Polley. It worked by shining a beam of light onto a photoelectric cell, but the cell did not distinguish between light from the remote and light from other sources. The Flashmatic also had to be pointed very precisely at the receiver in order to work. - Wikipedia

By Roger Bianchini Warren County Report We were distressed to learn of the passing of Eugene Polley on May 20 at the age of 96. Polley invented the first wireless TV remote, known as the “Flash-matic” in 1955 during a 47-year career with Zenith Electronics. I know this will be hard for some of you to understand but there was actually a time when televisions had only three stations, the picture was broadcast only in black & white – and most shocking, you had to get up and walk from the couch to the television to change the station or turn the set on and

off. According to Wikipedia, Polley died on Sunday, May 20, at Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove, Chicago. His death was announced by Zenith Electronics, for whom he worked from 1935 to 1982. The Flash-Matic used light beams to control a television outfitted with photo cells in the screen. It could turn the set on and off, as well as change the channel. Polley also worked on the pushbutton car radio and contributed to the development of video disks, Wikipedia points out. Polley’s Flash-Matic predated by a year a similar device known as

the “Space Command” created by another Zenith engineer, Robert Adler. While Adler’s device, using ultrasound, gained predominance over Adler’s light beam because sunlight on the TV could kick in the remote functions, the development of infrared technology in modern remotes returns the technology toward Polley’s invention. When Adler died in 2007, Polley was quoted in tribute to his colleague, stating, “This is the greatest thing since the wheel. We did something for humanity.” Amen, and God speed, old friends – we’ll think of you both often … Honey, could you bring me the remote?!!?”

That heart helped Martiez survive his chronic heart disease until a permanent heart could be found. “I want to thank the community for the wonderful response to your last article,� Vorous said of our “Early May� cover story on Martiez’s battle for life. “Even though we did not get a vehicle, we’ve been able to collect enough money to purchase parts needed to repair the vehicle they have.

I’m Trying by Kevin S. Engle Saturday afternoon. It’s raining. I’m standing in the basement looking out the window. An unfamiliar gray van slowly makes its way up our drive. It stops. It turns around. It’s headed back down the driveway. It stops again. I’m suspicious. The driver gets out and runs in to the weeds. What’s he doing? Relieving himself? I doubt it. There’s no place to hide. Ten seconds later, he’s back in the van. I step outside hoping someone will see me. He pulls onto the road and drives away. That was strange. If he wasn’t going to the bathroom, what was he doing? I’m guessing he was after a wildflower. They grow on our property. Flower stealer! Fast forward to the following Friday. I’m walking down the driveway to the mailbox. Before I get there, something catches my eye. I can barely see it, but it’s there, underneath an overturned tree stump. I investigate.

Vorous told us on May 22 that a second biopsy showed continued improvement on the rejection front and that Martiez was able to speak his first sentence since this battle to have his body accept his new heart began. “He said, ‘I want to go home.’ “ rous says. “Martiez told his mother shortly after he received the artificial heart in January that he knew that God would not put more on him than he was able to bear. As a mother, I can’t imagine what it must be like for them to have a child in a hospital so far away. To feel the need to be with him while still attending to other children here at home. The constant worry about money, bills, and food is an ever-present cloud that hangs over their head. And as a dad, dealing with the pressures of a growing number of absences from work and the need to maintain his role as head of the household and provider to his

Neurologists will be able to work with Martiez a little more to determine the extent of the damage now that he is not un-

He heard that one of the children in this family did not have a bicycle. So without hesitation he gave the only thing he had to give – his very own bicycle.

John helps Judy access the used hand-control converted van that helps her maintain independence and the ability to work. From pg 4 each. In fact, she noted social security initially refused coverage help because she worked. “It seems whenever I try to get assistance they say, ‘Well, you work – you’re okay’ or ‘You’re married, you don’t qualify.’ “I used to get new [prosthetics] every three or four years when I was in West Virginia. But after we moved to Virginia we found that agencies here were better at helping me find work than they were in West Virginia, but they would not cover replacement of my prosthetic legs.”

She hasn’t worn the prosthetic legs for over two months and has subsequently had issues with swelling. However, doctor appointments made through St. Luke’s Community Clinic have helped bring that swelling down, so hopefully she can be fitted for new prosthetic legs in the not-too-distant future. Having her “legs” is very important in giving her more options on mobility. And she told us the legs make her less an object of public curiosity. She told us she became very self-conscious of being stared at as a young girl trying to keep up with her schooling. “Maybe that’s why I’m so conscious of not having my prosthetic legs now,”

Community

Judy’s prosthetic legs have seen better days after 20 year of use. She was forced to stop using them two months ago. she told us. And that brings us to Judy’ current plight. She has worked with St. Luke’s Clinic in Front Royal and Director Glenn Burdick and Cardinal Prosthetics of Winchester, which she has given a $1,000 payment on new legs. Cardinal is re-applying for Medicare coverage, which they hope will be approved within several weeks. And so once again we find ourselves asking this community to step up to the plate to help another neighbor that the supposed federal and state social and medical safety nets we have been assured by some politicians are in place for those of us without health

insurance or vast personal resources, fail. A friend and co-worker at Lowe’s, Denise Burke, has developed a fundraising idea on Judy’s behalf centered on her brother’s scrap metal business. “Judy’s a wonderful lady – would do anything for you. Right now the focus at a lot of places, including here at Lowe’s, is on the Relay for Life. But I had this idea to raise money for Judy through scrap metal collection, which is my brother Daniel Lawson’s business. So we’re saying we don’t want your money – times are tough for a lot of people – but give us your trash, your scrap metal you want to get rid

of. We’ll haul your scrap metal for free – old appliances, washing machines, dryers, refrigerator, stove, the car wheel off an old vehicle, everything from aluminum cans to junked vehicles themselves. We even want to get businesses involved – instead of throwing scrap away in a dumpster, we’ll come get it. Daniel will take about 10-percent off the top to cover his expenses and the rest of it will go to Judy.” It’s a start, folks. Anyone wishing to participate in Denise and Daniel’s scrap metal drive for Judy can contact Daniel Lawson at (540) 631-4020 (cell) or (540) 6319197 (home); or Denise Burke at (540) 671-0830 (cell). And this paper will track the success and financial impact of Judy’s application for Medicare assistance through Cardinal Prosthetics. Those wishing to contact Mrs. Titchnell about other forms of assistance may do so through this reporter at the number or e-mail (below) listed on our masthead page. – rogerb@warrencountyreport.com

A Memorial Day call for Congressional support of our vets At work on account of uncle’s WW II experience, one vet says more can be done

At front right, Commander Victor Failmezger, USN (ret.), helps escort WW II veteran Joseph Borrielo at 2011 ceremony at Tomb of Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery By Malcolm Barr Sr. Warren County Report Retired U.S. naval officer Victor (Tory) Failmezger calls on employers this Memorial Day to give special consideration to Iraq and Afghanistan veterans who apply to them for jobs. Generally, it is estimated that one in three of these recent war veterans is unemployed. Failmezger, a Vietnam era veteran, whose family runs the downtown Vino E Formaggio restaurant and who is a former member of the Warren County Planning Commission, also encouraged the Warren County electorate to urge their congressmen to more readily recognize these veterans’ health problems. Referring to a book he is writing on his uncle’s heroic experiences during World War II, Failmezger, a retired USN commander, remarked on the 150 letters his uncle, First Lt. Thomas Peter Welch, mailed home to his family. “Uncle Tommy was a hero and earned the medals to prove it,” he said. “Doing research (for the book) I made visits to the National Archives, U.S. museums, and battlefields in Italy, France and Germany. I now feel I know the brave men of his outfit (the 601st Tank Destroyer Battalion).” Welch and his battlefield colleagues together earned one Medal of Honor, 345 other medals for bravery, and 630 purple hearts. They participated in eight major campaigns plus four amphibious landings. One hundred and ten men were killed in 546 days of combat. Failmezger said it became obvious that many of the returnees in 1945 suffered with what was then called

“shell shock” - now known as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (or Injury). “Iraqi and Afghanistan veterans, thanks to modern medical advances, have a greater survival rate than any previous war,” Failmezger said. “But there is the need for long term care and assistance to address their ongoing physical problems and PTSD.”

While embraced by his home community and Homes for Our Troops, a private support group that helps fit homes for disabled vets, Iraq War vet Bunky Woods understands the need for increased political and private sector support for vets trying to re-enter the work place. Woods is continuing his education at LFCC with that goal in mind. He added: “Times change and, unlike World War II, most Americans do not have a direct relationship with a member of the nation’s all-volunteer armed forces. “On Memorial Day, we pay special tribute to those who died protecting this country, and to those who returned wounded from the recent campaigns against terrorism. So by all means thank a vet for their service but see what you can do in a more permanent way for the men and

women who put it on the line every day for their country.” Failmezger is within a few weeks of sending his book manuscript (working title: “An American Knight”) to a publisher. Last August, he was asked to escort a WWII veteran in laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery (see photo), an invitation he described as a “singular honor.”

Gone but not forgotten are the dogs of war. The earliest of these thousands of

dogs that have helped our military through World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, plus numerous skirmishes in between, were the war dogs of Front Royal. The country’s first War Dog Recep-

for beach patrols guarding against submarine activities. Others, both in Europe and the Pacific, occupied point positions with their handlers on combat patrols, warning against snipers, ambushes, or other surprise attacks. They are credited with saving countless human lives. Most were - and are today - German and Belgian Shepherds, Dobermans, Collies and Giant Schnauzers. Smaller dogs, like those trained by retired U.S. Marine Col. John Lesinski, a Front Royal Rotarian, now are used for returning troops with war wounds, either physical or mental (such as those with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder as described elsewhere in these pages).

Nebraska and Mississippi. Today, the largest training center for military working dogs is Lackland AFB, Texas. My first contact with dog soldiers of World War II was half a world away, however, and they had already given their all for their masters, their colleagues, and their country. The site was the Pacific War Dog Cemetery on the island of Guam. I was there on assignment for The Associated Press to cover the initial B-52 bombing missions over North Vietnam. During downtime on the island I requested permission of the Andersen AFB commander to visit the cemetery, and an airman to guide me there. In a quiet jungle clearing, we found some 20 headstones, each bearing the name of a dog killed in action during the WWII Pacific campaign. It was a moving moment for me and the airman. Mostly, of the 10,000 dogs trained for World War II duty, about 90 percent were for sentry duty. Surprisingly, the largest group of sentry dogs were issued to the U.S. Coast Guard

They also sniff out explosives, saving an untold number of human lives, particularly in the past war in Iraq and the current conflict in Afghanistan. General David Petraeus, now CIA director, is quoted as saying: “The capability (the dogs) bring to the fight cannot be replaced by man or machine.” In a recent book, “Soldier Dogs,” by journalist and dog lover Maria Goodavage, available from Samuels Public Library, the author reminds us that a dog contributed to the Navy SEALS’ success in taking out Osama Bin Laden. Maria describes her book as “The Untold Story of America’s Canine Heroes.” Perhaps we should pause a moment on this Memorial Day to salute the unsung heroes of wars past and present -- our “soldier dogs.”

“From this battle, Jackson and his men marched into history. We remember the men who marched 150 years ago on a hot, sultry day and the sorrows of the Confederate families of that day and also of the Union families.” – UDC & Warren Rifles officer Suzanne Silek

History

Warren Rifles celebrate Confederate Memorial Day Civil War descendants help recall heroism of Battle of Front Royal

Soldier’s Circle and monument, Prospect Hill Cemetery

By Carol Ballard Warren County Report On a typical muddy May day 150 years ago, Confederate and Union troops met in and around Front Royal in one of the first of the battles of Confederate Army Major General Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson’s Campaign through Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley. Descendants of soldiers who took part in that day’s Battle of Front Royal were at the Warren Rifles Confederate Museum to remember them at the Confederate Memorial Day service on Wednesday, May 23. By all accounts the Battle of Front Royal was a scene of heroism by the troops of the 6th and 7th Virginia Cavalries, the 1st Maryland Infantry and Louisiana’s Wheat’s Battalion. The Battle of Front Royal demonstrated Jackson’s use of Valley topography and reminiscences included a story about Warren County native

Samuel Simpson who gave General Jackson crucial information about using Warren County’s back roads which led him to surprise the Union troops in Front Royal. Another story included accounts of the members of Wheat’s Battalion also known as the “Louisiana Tigers”, who were described as possessing “bravery outstanding”. And, “Never have I seen such a gallant charge,” said Stonewall Jackson, describing the cavalry charge. The service was originally planned for Prospect Hill Cemetery near the Soldiers’ Circle at the top of the hill which is made up of 90 identified Confederate soldiers, but rainy weather, not unlike that of 150 years ago, changed that plan. However, Confederate flags and flowers were placed on the identified graves inside the circle which lie above186 unidentified soldiers buried under a mound in a common grave.

Suzanne Silek and Confederate Color Guard, represented by Dwayne Mauck, Max Yoder, Clay Baugher and Glenn Martin.

The site was selected because, according to the publication “Memories in Marble”, it was from there that General Stonewall Jackson directed the Battle of Front Royal. “From this battle, Jackson and his men marched into history. We remember the men who marched 150 years ago on a hot, sultry day and the sorrows of the Confederate families of that day and also of the Union families,” concluded Suzanne Silek, who is treasurer of the Warren Rifles Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy and president of the board of trustees of the Warren Rifles Confederate Museum.

Public Service

The ninth annual Law Enforcement Memorial Service

Color Guard at the Ninth Annual Law Enforcement Memorial Service By Sue Golden Frederick County Report Under a beautiful blue sky, with white puffy clouds, the Rappahannock Regional Criminal Justice Academy – Middletown Campus and the Fraternal Order of Police Lodges #12 and #33, held the Ninth Annual Law Enforcement Memorial Service. The families of the local officers who made the ultimate sacrifice sat front and center, surrounded by local officers and friends. The current class of cadets stood at attention in the hot sun. The color guard posted the colors and the flags were presented and hoisted, as a gentle breeze lifted the flags. Danielle Furr played the violin, as a decorative flower arrangement was placed in front of the families. Art Culberson, RRCJA Assistant Director welcomed everyone to the service. The invocation was provided by Lt. Roger Vorous, Warren County Sheriff ’s Office Chaplain. Dave Vice, RRCJA Executive Director, honored all those officers present, as well as those missing. “On the first day of recruit academy class I explain to them they have joined the law enforcement community and have become part of our family . . . . . a family of public servants that place their lives on the line on a daily basis.” However, Mr. Vice noted that “it is the family who always pay the premium for upholding the thin blue line.” Chief David Nye, Chairman RRCJA Board of Directors, told the assemblage “I appreciate that Police Week brings recognition to the heroes who have been tragically taken from our ranks and also shines a spotlight on the strong bonds that are so evident in our law enforcement family, as thousands of officers, deputies, rangers and troopers, members of marine patrol and correctional officers converge on Washington and at memo-

rial services like these all over the country.” Keynote speaker Marty Williams, President of the Fraternal Order of Police of Virginia, spoke of being at the White House the day before. He said that officers standing at attention formed two columns leading to the west wing of the White House. Families of the fallen walked between the columns as they approached the White House. Thousands also attended the service at the Law Enforcement Memorial in Washington, DC. A roll call was made of those local officers that paid the ultimate sacrifice: Lt. William Patrick Farrell, Front Royal Police Department Trooper H. Lee Henderson, Virginia State Police Trooper Kevin Carder Manion, Virginia State Police Sheriff James W. Newcome, Frederick County Sheriff ’s Office Sheriff Luther Pannett, Frederick County Sheriff ’s Office Sgt. Dennis M. Smedley, Front Royal Police Department Sgt. Ricky L. Timbrook, Winchester Police Department Trooper II Daniel Lee Williams, Virginia State Police As each name was called, the family was escorted to the flower arrangement and placed a small American flag in the arrangement. If the family was not present, an officer placed the flag. As if the roll call was not emotional enough, the Winchester Pipe and Drum played Amazing Grace on their bagpipes, at which point nary an eye was dry. Following the benediction by Major R. C. Eckman from the Frederick County Sheriff ’s Department, Cadet Rabia Otry, from the Randolph Macon Academy played taps.

Salahi divorce

Tareq Salahi lone principal present for May 22 hearings Lawsuit motions and divorce trial dates set for July, December, respectively

Tareq Salahi appeared fit and holding up well following May 22 hearings. By Roger Bianchini Warren County Report On May 22, Tareq Salahi rebounded somewhat from a legal beating at an April 9 hearing on his divorce case against wife Michaele and a related $50-million lawsuit seeking damages from the split and publicity surrounding it. That latter lawsuit was initially filed against his wife; Journey guitarist Neil

Schon for whom Michaele appears to have left her husband; and Journey’s promotional company DB Entertainment. Only attorneys representing Schon and DB, as well as Mrs. Salahi were present for the defense at the May 22 hearing. Warren County Circuit Court Judge Dennis L. Hupp ruled that a non-suit filed after a 21-day timeframe granted by the court on April 9 to file an amended complaint in the lawsuit

Cruel and unusual? Michaele and Neil Schon were all over TV and the tabloids in days after she split last September. could stand, thus allowing Tareq and his new attorney in that case, Charles B. Roberts, to re-file the complaint at a future date. Attorneys for Michaele, Schon and Journey’s promotional company had argued that once the 21-day timeframe initially granted for filing the amended complaint had passed, there was no case existing for the court to rule further on. Had the court upheld that argument, it appeared the highdollar lawsuit springing from very public circumstances surrounding the Salahi split and Tareq’s subsequent claims of defamation and loss of potential income would have been gone and forgotten. In making his ruling, Judge Hupp said the circumstance surrounding the plaintiff’s request for the nonsuit was not unusual in such cases. He added that Mrs. Salahi’s filing of a counter-defamation claim against her husband for publicly referring to her as a “groupie slut” following her appearing on tour and on her Facebook page in photos with Schon and his band, further justified the plaintiff’s

option to re-file. A date of July 9 was set to hear arguments on a defense motion for dismissal of the amended complaint. Attorneys on both sides of the lawsuit agreed that arguments on dismissal would be pretty straight forward and might take no longer than an hour for the court to hear. Those arguments are scheduled to begin at 10:30 a.m. with a lot of money riding on the court ruling. During April 9 arguments on the lawsuit, Rossiter told the court, “This was a plan hatched a couple of weeks before and caused severe emotional distress to [Mr. Salahi] … There is no case like this … it’s not about the affair, it’s about the way they continued to torment him with the affair.” D-I-V-O-R-C-E After several motions rulings on the divorce case were made by Judge Hupp, a trial date of Dec. 10, beginning at 9 a.m., was set for the divorce hearing. It was estimated by attorneys that the case could take from a half

day to a day, with the grounds for the divorce counter-filings in dispute. The primary issue resolved by the court in the divorce case was that a telephone deposition of an out-ofstate witness for Mrs. Salahi would be allowed as statutes permit. Georgia Rossiter, continuing her representation of Tareq Salahi in the divorce, argued against a phonedin deposition of Connecticut-based witness Tina Fay. Rossiter said it appeared Fay’s testimony would be accusatory against her client, whom she said should have the right to face his accuser in the courtroom. “She is going to testify to facts,” Michaele’s attorney Edward D. Barnes countered harshly. “However, if they want to pay for her to come down,” Barnes continued. Rossiter and her client made no such offer to pay for the transport and housing of a witness they expect to testify to a sexual affair with Tareq Salahi alleged by that witness in an interview with Diane Dimond, a writer who has followed the Salahis since they became public figures in the wake of an alleged gate crashing of a White House State Dinner for the Indian Embassy in November 2009. Hupp did rule that Rossiter could argue against inclusion of Fay’s testimony at trial after the phone deposition was made. “He brought her here Thanksgiving and spent the weekend with her here,” Michaele attorney Barnes told the court about the nature of the deposition Fay was expected to make in alleging adultery by Tareq Salahi in his wife’s counter filing for divorce. Michaele Salahi left the couple’s Mosby Estates mountain home on September 13, 2011, and showed up on tour with Schon and his band Journey the following day, approximately two months before the alleged sexual encounter between Fay and Tareq Salahi.

Salahi divorce According to Warren County Sheriff Daniel T. McEathron, Tareq Salahi called the sheriff’s office Tuesday, Sept. 13 at 11:50 p.m. to report he had not seen his wife for six hours and considered her missing. A clearly distraught Tareq Salahi initially told authorities he believed his wife had been kidnapped. A deputy who had previous contact with the couple reached Mrs. Salahi by phone and reported, “Mrs. Salahi advised that she did not want Mr. Salahi to know where she was” and “seemed calm, was engaged in conversation, and assured the deputy that she had left the residence with a good friend and was where she wanted to be.” And that’s where this tabloid-sensational divorce and legal dispute began. It will continue in court on July 9 as dismissal of the $50-million lawsuit is argued and then again on Dec. 10 when the divorce hearing hits the courtroom.

18 was cited and allowed to proceed when neither party expressed interest in maintaining the home as a marital asset. However, Tareq said the sale did not go through and he believed his wife had changed her mind about letting the marital asset go prior to resolution of the divorce despite a large mortgage debt on it. As for an announced run for gover-

nor of Virginia, Tareq said following the May 22 hearing, “I have a lot to say and I’m ready to say it,” Tareq said he is seeking the Republican nomination for governor, possibly against Virginia Attorney General Ken Cucinelli, who coincidentally has announced a prosecution of Tareq for failing to provide promised customer services at the Salahi family’s Oasis

Tareq pitching & politicking At one point in the May 22 proceeding, Tareq’s attorney Rossiter said her client was unavailable for an initially-proposed Oct. 22 divorce hearing date. “Why?” Michaele attorney Barnes asked sharply. After a brief conversation with her client, Rossiter told the court Tareq would be out of town “on production” from Oct. 21-28. Asked later if he could divulge what he was going to be out of town “on production” on, Tareq said that as a tentative project still being pitched, he could not yet comment. He also confirmed that he is still living in the couple’s former marital home in Mosby Estates near Linden, in eastern Warren County. On April 9, a pending foreclosure sale on April

“What is at stake is the will of the majority and the integrity of the process … There has to be an end to this madness.” – splinter group Republican Committee Chairman Mike McHugh

Political storm

Hard-core conservative Republicans re-state their case McHugh, Fusaro-led block of ultra-conservatives meet on officer appeal

Mike McHugh explains updated appeal of April 12 election of WC Republican Committee officers By Roger Bianchini Warren County Report Despite the April 12 election of the remaining slate of executive committee officers the Warren County Republican Committee failed to elect at its March 15 Mass Meeting, the battle for control of the county Republican apparatus appears to be far from over. On May 15, a group of 45 people, including 40 already-registered county Republican Committee members, met to discuss their and the county committee’s current status. At issue is whether the committee has followed its own rules in electing officers in the wake of a deadlocked March 15 mass meeting. At subsequent meetings controlled by the warring factions dueling slates of officers were

elected. On April 10, thirty new committee members who were part of an estimated 55 to 60-person mass-meeting block described by organizers of that block as “constitutional conservatives, Ron Paul people and hard-core, pro-life Catholics” re-adjourned the mass meeting and elected their own slate of officers. Elected to the Warren County Republican Committee Executive Board that night were Mike McHugh, chairman; Nick Bukowski, vice chairman; and Jon Fidero, secretary. However at the regular monthly committee meeting held two days later on April 12 at the Villa Avenue Community Center and attended by about 100 people, another slate of officers was elected – Dominic Repici, chairman; Steve Kurtz, vice-chair; and Mary Kay Clark, re-elect-

ed as secretary. Trish Anderson, re-elected treasurer on March 15, is recognized by both blocks. On April 12, no opposing nominations were made even though counter-Chairman McHugh, Fusaro and fellow splinter group organizer Manuel Vicente were all present as paid-up and eligible-to-vote committee members. However, McHugh objected to an election by acclamation process and Fusaro objected to the nomination process in its entirety. After a brief verbal back and forth involving several people, newly-elected chairman Repici told Fusaro he was out of order and both his and McHugh’s objections to the new nominating process were overruled. In fact, during that April 12 meeting committee member Allan Edwards challenged the participation of those involved in the April 10 splinter group election of officers. “How can Mr. McHugh and Mr. Fusaro be functioning members of this committee when they were elected officers of another body just two days ago?” Edwards asked (actually Fusaro simply re-

assumed his Mass Meeting chairmanship duties and was not nominated for local committee office). On May 15, McHugh and Fusaro led the specially-called meeting they organized to revisit and re-word the appeal McHugh has filed in protest of the April 12 election of committee officers. McHugh convened the specially-called meeting but quickly turned chairmanship duties over to Fusaro. Questioned about his chairing of the meeting, Fusaro explained McHugh relinquished chairman’s duties because McHugh’s claim to the chairmanship and his role in crafting an official appeal of the election of the Repici-led slate of officers were going to be the primary topics of the meeting. McHugh relinquished conduct of the meeting so he could speak to those issues as a member, rather than chairman Fusaro said. What McHugh addressed and the membership present eventually approved were a re-filing and rewording of the appeal of committee actions at both the March 15 mass meeting and the April 12

meeting, as well as issues surrounding the calling of the May 15 meeting. Only one of the more traditional committee members, Susan Conway, attended the May 15 meeting, perhaps as eyes and ears for the Repici-Kurtz-Clark block. McHugh alleged that Repici refused to cooperate in calling the meeting and cited an e-mail from former Virginia Republican Party Chairman Pat McSweeney to support the meeting’s legality. “Your interpretation of the rule allowing one-third of the members of your unit committee to call a meeting of the committee is correct. That one-third of the membership has the right to call the meeting at the time and place of its choosing so long as the notice is given in accordance with the State Party Plan and applicable by-laws of the committee,” McSweeney wrote. “We met nothing but opposition in trying to get this meeting scheduled. We asked them to give us contact information on the membership so we could get a call out – they did not,” Nathan Scott told

“It’s too bad. There are good people involved who seem to want more action out of the Republican Party. They need someone to be angry at. We’ve been tagged ‘the establishment’, so we’re it.” – county Republican Chair Dom Repici on appeal of his and Steve Kurtz April 12 elections factions of Republicans vying for leadership – how do we get this resolved and get back together? I don’t know who’s right …” Fusaro commented, “The committee as a whole, with good intentions but improperly, elected a new chairman and vice chairman on April 12, when they should have either reconvened the mass meeting or recognized the result of the re-convened mass meeting of April 10.” Later as potential timeframes on a decision from state level Republicans was discussed, McHugh commented, “There has to be an end to this madness.”

Do I hear a second? - Acting Chairman Dennis Fusaro listens as Mike McHugh works on wording of resurrected officer election appeal. those present on May 15. Included in the wording of the new appeal being filed with the 6th District state Republican Committee was, “MOST IMPORTANTLY NOW the committee voted to accept the appeal and recognize Mr. McHugh as chair and Mr. Bukowski as vice-chair. Therefore, we the undersigned as members of the Warren County GOP, ask that the 6th District instruct the members of the Warren GOP that

Counterpoint Repici agrees the madness must stop but has a different perspective on where that madness originates. He said he has seen McHugh’s re-tooled officer-election appeal approved at a meeting he does not see as valid. Other than refusing to provide a mailing or emailing list for the committee membership to non-recognized officers without the membership’s permission, Repici disputes he was uncooperative about re-scheduling the May committee meeting initially and still slated for May 31. He said after being approached by

splinter group Vice-Chairman Bukowski about a call for a May 15 meeting, he asked for an agenda and was told the group wanted to endorse a candidate, presumably Karen Kwiatkowski against Bob Goodlatte for the Republican 6th District Congressional nomination. However, Repici explained that such endorsements were not procedurally allowed and might even be technically illegal. Repici said he offered a compromise date of May 24 for the scheduled May 31 committee meeting despite the lack of a valid agenda being given to him. But after checking with others involved, Repici said Bukowski called back to say that wasn’t acceptable to the

“This will end on June 2 or soon after. I will honor the decision. I hope the other side will as well.” – dueling county Republican Committee Chairman Mike McHugh group he represented. “They make accusations and proceed as if they are true. There is a lot of rhetoric and demands but little substance there to support them … the truth is they had control of the mass meeting but made a [procedural] mistake [in adjourning it] and don’t want to admit it. Now they are making an assumption they can run meetings as they want,” Repici said. “It’s too bad. There are good people involved who seem to want more action out of the Republican Party. They need someone to be angry at. We’ve been tagged ‘the establishment’, so we’re it.”

Repici also disputes the notion the splinter group now has a majority hold on the Warren County Republican Committee and sees the organizational leadership of that group as unyielding ideologues. “I think politics is a marketplace of ideas. You put ideas out there and let people decide what they want. You can’t rule by strong-armed thuggery – that doesn’t advance the exchange of ideas. I’m not trying to bash anybody. I just don’t think they understand the function of government. “I’m not saying they snuck up on us at the mass meeting but they did have a

Political storm stated. The committee chairman Repici and McHugh are vying to replace, Dave Henderson, said he believes the imprint of Ron Paul’s presidential campaign is still a motivation for the McHugh-Fusaro camp despite Paul’s “suspension” of his campaign. Fusaro is a past national field

coordinator for Paul. “I heard that an order went out from the Paul people to those involved at the local level ‘to keep the pressure up,’ ” Henderson said. Asked if Henderson’s “Paul theory” was a factor in the renewed action on the officer appeal, McHugh said, “I’m content to

But I don’t know what my getting elected chairman here could have to do with Paul’s campaign.” If not Paul support, McHugh has focused recently on challenging the renomination of Bob Goodlatte as the Republican representative to the 6th U.S. Congressional District. McHugh raised

the eyebrows of some county Republicans by sporting a “Fire Bob” T-shirt at the 6th District Republican meeting in Lexington the first weekend in May. McHugh has criticized Goodlatte for his support of a temporary budget compromise that kept the federal government operational

several months ago and which included provisions for President Obama’s health care reform. McHugh has thrown his support for the 6th District nomination to retired Pentagon Officer Karen Kwiatkowski.

Political intrigue for judgeship over - Athey in but … Controversy over Richmond prosecutor’s failed nomination takes center stage

forts of my former colleagues in the Shenandoah Valley Caucus and look forward to working with Frederick County Circuit Court Clerk, Becky Hogan, and her diligent and professional staff to protect and serve the citizens of the 26th Judicial Circuit.” The press release and Athey’s neutral tone of gratitude and acceptance for the appointment conceal a lengthy and politically contentious process that has held up not only Athey’s, but several judicial appointments around the commonwealth that fell prey to a particularly contentious partisan 2012 session of the

Virginia General Assembly. Athey’s appointment fills a vacancy open since March 1, 2011, when the retirement of Judge John R. Prosser took effect. Athey announced that he would not seek re-election to his 18th District seat in the Virginia House of Representatives four weeks later on March 29. Almost immediately rumors that Athey was poised to fill Prosser’s vacant seat emerged from inside the local Republican apparatus in Front Royal, where Athey used to preside as mayor. However it wasn’t until almost eight months later those rumors became more substantial. “I was contacted earlier today by Delegate Steven Landes, who informed me that I was the consensus candidate of the Shenandoah Valley Caucus to fill the current Circuit vacancy in the 26th Judicial Circuit,” Athey stated in a Nov. 23, 2011 press release. Athey became available for legislative appointment to the judicial seat after he officially left office on Jan. 12, 2011. However, the appointment floundered for another four months as state Democrats reacted negatively to what they perceived as a heavyhanded Republican wielding of their newfound legislative majority in the 2012 assembly session that included targeting of social issues like birth control and abortion rights; the granting of tax breaks to private corporations that fund private, religious-based schools versus funding initiatives for public education; among others.

Athey’s appointment seemed tied to an impasse over a Democratic judge nominee in southwest Virginia, Clarence E. “Bud” Phillips. While both Athey and Phillips judgeships were approved following votes in the early-morning hours of Tuesday, May 15 – reported to us by Athey as coming around 2 a.m. – those and other appointments took a backseat to controversy over Republican rejection of the appointment to a Richmond judgeship for Richmond prosecutor Tracy Thorne-Begland. Thorne-Begland is openly gay and

challenged the U.S. military’s nowdefunct “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy on military service by homosexuals while himself serving in the military. Another social agenda? On May 15, the Washington Post reported, “Virginia’s General Assembly rejected Tracy Thorne-Begland for a Richmond judgeship in the wee hours, at the end of a 13-hour session devoted to wrapping up the state budget and appointing more

In that final legislative act, the General Assembly was consumed by a divisive social issue, just as it has been time and again this session. Some lawmakers feared Tuesday’s move would bring back unflattering national attention

to a swing state crucial to the presidential race.” Virginia’s General Assembly became the focus of national media attention, as well as the butt of jokes by political comedians like Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert

over its eventually softened effort to legally mandate unnecessary and physically intrusive ultrasound procedures – termed “state-sanctioned rape” by some – on women seeking abortions. That the specter of legislative discrimination had resurfaced in the assembly’s final session was tread on lightly by several prominent Republicans, including potential Republican vice-residential contender Governor Bob McDonnell and U.S. Senate candidate George Allen. Responding to reporters on the state beat, the Washington Post reported McDonnell stating, “I have long made clear that discrimination on the basis of such factors as race, religion or sexual orientation is not acceptable in any judicial appointment process. In my consideration of judicial candidates I only consider the individual’s ability to do the job well. If anyone voted against Mr. Thorne-Begland because of his sexual orientation that would be very disappointing and unacceptable.”

“Decisions on judges should be merit-based selections based on a person’s skill, ability, fairness, judicial temperament, and fidelity to the Constitution and laws,” Allen said in part in an e-mail from his campaign office. Allen’s chief rival for the Republican U.S. Senate nomination, archconservative Bob Marshall of Prince William County, took a harsher tone and was active with Christian family activists in opposing ThorneBegland’s appointment. Marshall said he could not reconcile ThorneBegland’s lifestyle with judicial objectivity on issues that might impact that lifestyle. The 45-year-old Thorne-Begland issued a statement to the media by email, stating only, “I look forward to continuing to serve the citizens of the City of Richmond and the great Commonwealth of Virginia.” Back to the 26th As for our new circuit court judge,

Athey thanked his family and supporters for their support through the process and his entire career of public service from the Front Royal Town Council to his pending seat on the bench. He also acknowledged challenges in this mid-life career change, which he told us in December was motivated by a desire to have a more stable professional lifestyle closer to home as his children reach school age. “I still think it’s going to be a challenge. There’s going to be a learning curve obviously,” Athey said. “There’s no question that in recent years I haven’t practiced a lot of criminal law. I think my practice has been like a lot of people’s: those first few years it was mostly criminal and then over time it became more civil than criminal, and then at a certain point it became almost exclusively civil. And certainly the last seven to eight years it has been mostly civil litigation and/or local government law that I have spent most of time in. But I’ve done a little bit of everything over the last 20 years.”

“VRA is willing to proceed with a stand-alone bond sale for the RSW Regional Jail Authority with no delays to the construction of the jail. The jurisdictions remain committed to the regional jail project.” – WC Administrator and RSW Authority Chairman Doug Stanley on bond delay

RSW Jail

Threatened litigation delays regional jail financing Stanley - state RSW financing simply being separated as legal precaution

By Roger Bianchini Warren County Report Opponents of the tri-county Rappahannock-Shenandoah-Warren Regional Jail appear to have created a snag with a threatened lawsuit – or did they? The Virginia Resources Authority was expected to include a $43.1-million bond issue for the local funding shares of the $68-plus million construction project on Tuesday, May 22

– they didn’t. Warren County Administrator Doug Stanley, who also serves as chairman of the RSW Jail Authority, told us, “We have learned that the Virginia Resources Authority (VRA) has received a threat of legal action regarding the financing of the RSW Regional Jail. As a result of this action, and due to the specific timing of the threat, the VRA is currently unable to provide the proper disclosures for the benefit of the bond underwriters

and potential bond buyers. “Accordingly, in an effort to mitigate risk to the many participants in the entire Spring Bond Pool, VRA has elected to separate the RSW Regional Jail bonds from the remaining bonds (including Warren County) for purposes of this bond sale.” Perhaps most importantly, Stanley added, “VRA is willing to proceed with a stand-alone bond sale for the RSW Regional Jail Authority with no delays to the construction of the jail. The jurisdictions remain committed to the regional jail project.” Stanley said the RSW Jail Authority had yet to meet to discuss the situation and could give us no information on the source of the threatened litigation. However as reported in our last issue, local constitutional conservative and Republican activist Mike McHugh informed us of the late April launching of a so-called “robo call” campaign spearheaded by the “Ad Hoc Committee Against Financial Waste” based in Shenandoah County urging constituents of 26th District Virginia State Senator Mark Obenshain to ask the senator to lobby Gov. McDonnell to veto the RSW Jail project. Opposition to the project has centered in Shenandoah County, where Sheriff Tim Carter has never embraced the project as the best and most financially-viable answer for his department and that county’s future inmate needs. Questioned about the legal action holding up the RSW bond issue, McHugh said Ad Hoc Committee principal Mark Prince was the lead contact person. McHugh did say the threatened litigation was based on a belief financing of this kind requires a public vote of approval, which did

not occur in the counties’ approvals of participation in the project – other than votes by the county boards of supervisors. We were unable to reach Prince prior to publication. The process of final approval of a construction contract and financing was completed on April 23. It began on April 12, at 2 p.m. at the Warren County Government Center when the RSW Jail Authority opened construction bids. A low base bid of $55,674,800 was received from Howard Shockey & Sons of Winchester. The Authority then met on April 19 to review the low bid with legal counsel and the project team. Following that meeting, the RSW Jail Authority awarded the contract for regional jail construction to low-bidder Shockey, with a slight downward adjustment

totaling a $102,000 reduction, bringing the accepted bid total down to $55,572,800. The three member counties are forecast to use 270 of the available inmate bed space, with as many as 293 beds, with double bunking, going to outside jurisdictions on rental arrangements. Local funding splits are based on the number of inmate beds they fill. That split is currently estimated at: • Rappahannock – 36 inmates (13.3 percent funding share); • Shenandoah – 99 inmates (36.7 percent funding share) • Warren – 135 inmates (50 percent funding share). The jail is scheduled to open in July 2014

In Virginia a motorist cannot be pulled over just for having their seatbelt unfastened. They can, however, be ticketed if pulled for another offense or are stopped at a safety check point and an officer notices the seatbelt unfastened, as FRPD officials explained to us last year around this time. Local police, like many across the commonwealth, chose to participate despite the ticketing restriction because of statistics indicating overall seatbelts save lives in accidents. “The Front Royal Police Department wishes to remind motorists that wearing a seat belt can mean the difference between surviving a crash with little or no injuries, or suffering a serious injury or death without a seatbelt,â€? Front Royal Police Chief Richard Furr said in a press release announcing program participation. “We will continue our efforts with law enforcement agencies across the nation in promoting traffic safety by participating in programs such as “Click It Or Ticketâ€? in order to keep both drivers and passengers safe during the Memorial Day holiday period. Our primary goal is to educate the citizens who believe they do not need to wear a seat beltâ€? adds Chief Furr. Thousands of state and local law enforcement and highway safety officials across the nation will participate in the enforcement mobilization. In 2011, 306 motorists were killed due to being unrestrained in Virginia.

“Statistics show that wearing a seat belt does make a difference in a crash. Our crash figures have been declining over the past several years. In 2006, there were 584 crashes in the town but in 2011, we had 185. We have made great strides in reducing these numbers but we are still experiencing an average of 70 injuries due to being unrestrained,� adds FRPD Traffic Enforcement Office Donald Orye. Statistics show that highest at-risk group is the 18-34 age range. In 2011, 102 people within this age group lost their lives due to not being restrained in Virginia.

When Front Royal Was Called ‘Helltown’ For a brief period the town of Front Royal was considered less than civilized by law abiding folks. Situated at a natural crossroads of roads passing through the mountains, the little town saw a great deal of trade, but not all of the goods traveled to market in wagons. In the early 1800’s hundreds of tons of flour, lumber, iron and other home grown goods were floated down the Valley on the Shenandoah River. The flatboats used were called ‘gundalows’ and

were approximately nine feet wide and from seventy to ninety feet long. They were steered by a rudder on each end and had to be navigated through open chutes at each mill dam. Carrying from eight to twelve tons of iron, or one hundred and ten barrels of flour, it was crucial to have an experienced riverman at the helm to navigate the rushing waters. The boats had tin horns about eight feet long and the rivermen would blow them to signal departure and sing songs as they floated down the Shenandoah. When these roughly made flatboats reached their destination, the goods would be sold and, as it was impossible to take them back upstream, the boats were disassembled and sold for lumber. Several houses in Front Royal have beams from these boats. The rivermen knew they faced a two or three day hike back to the starting place, and the natural thing to do was first get fortified at the local taverns, called ‘ordinaries.’ Equally rugged men were working on the railroads nearby and the result was a town hopping with brawls. The town soon became known as “Helltown,â€? the proof being a letter written to a judge from a traveler who had his horse stolen which contains the line, “While on my way to Helltown ‌â€?

called the Cerulean Warbler, or Dendroice Cerulea was the subject of a talk given April 11 at Samuels Public Library by nature writer Katie Fallon. She explained that she became obsessed with the bird after attending an Audubon lecture on the Warbler, “If you are a birder, you know how it feels,” she said, to sympathetic laughter from the audience, made up of “birders”, conservationists and wildlife supporters. “I like birds, and ‘bird’ was my first word as a child,” she said. She said that when someone suggested she write a book, she did. Cerulean Blues: A Personal Search for a Vanishing Songbird, is the result. Their habitat is being threatened by some mining, logging and South American farming practices. The birds spend the spring and summer on the east coast of the U.S. mostly in the West Virginia Appalachians, and migrate across the Gulf of Mexico to South America for the winter. And although their number is declining at an alarming rate and more quickly than others, they aren’t on the endangered list. The political reason for keeping the Warbler off the endangered list is, according

to Fish and Wildlife “because there are still 300 to 400,000” and this even though their numbers have dropped three percent since 1966. “They’re still not endangered enough,” said Katie. So why is there concern about their diminishing numbers?

Katie explained that if we think about the ways we’re linked with the species that share our world, everything is connected in ways similar to the Jenga game in which wooden pieces are stacked into a tower and some carefully pulled out. “If you pull enough pieces out, they will fall,’ she said. And on the Shenandoah National Parks website, it says, “The Cerulean Warbler is important to the ecosystem because they eat insects which can be considered as forest pests. The main threat to the survival of the Cerulean Warbler is from habitat degradation and forest fragmentation as the human population increases and land-uses change.” “When they take out a few trees, the birds respond well. In nature trees can fall down. The birds don’t mind a trail or a road or if single trees are cut and there are still some clusters of trees, but if the trees are clear cut, we won’t have a forest bird,” said Katie, to more audience laughter. The tiny bird has recently been seen and heard in forested areas in Harmony Hollow out near the Northern Virginia Regional 4-H Center. Sandy Wilson, who lives there and calls

Community herself a “semi-serious birder,” keeps bird lists and has seen and heard a few this spring. She and her husband Peter listen to the bird calls on recordings to learn the songs and calls. She noticed that around the first of April, on the first warm days, a lot of them showed up “They hang out in the tops of some tall sycamores,” she said. And some can still be found in nearby Shenandoah National Park, but they are very hard to spot, probably because their wingspan is approximately 2 ½ inches and they weigh only 9 to10 grams. Their nests are about three stories up in trees like oak, maple, elms, sycamore and black locust. A Cerulean Warbler’s nest is smaller than a teacup and largely made up of spider webs. If by determination, and maybe a good pair of binoculars, one is spotted, they can be identified by their beautiful blue color and two parallel white wing bars with a blue-black necklace and white bib. Some describe their song as “rapid buzzy notes on one pitch followed by a short series of rising and accelerating notes, ending with a single note. ZHEE ZHEE ZIZIZIZI zzzzeeet. The problem the birds are facing in West Virginia is that old growth hardwoods are being destroyed by large scale strip coal mining which began in the1970s and involves mountain-top removal. Eventually, to prevent erosion, steppes are built, and some grass is planted, but it’s difficult to get a thriving forest to grow on it “You don’t get the native hardwoods back,” said Katie. The Appalachian Regional Reforestation Initiative, ARRI, has a plan to churn up the soil and hand-plant trees, but it will take a hundred years to get a forest back. “Anyway, it’s a little depressing,” she said. Even though we don’t live in trees, our dependence on them is fundamental. Not only are they beautiful, they clean the air and soil; control noise pollution; slow storm water runoff; slow soil erosion; reduce the danger of global warming; and provide shade in the summer and break the force of winds in the winter. Another factor in the birds’ decline is that in Colombia, where Ceruleans like to spend the winter in the mountainous tree canopy, coffee is grown in the same area. Loss of forest habitat to non-shadegrown coffee production is destroying their winter nesting area, but that country is trying to help the birds while helping themselves. They want to continue to sell their coffee and have adopted the bird as their mascot. Colombians call the Warbler “Reinita Cielo Azul” or Little Sky Queen, and have created the first reserve in South America dedicated to a bird originating in North America. Recently Katie attended the Third Annual Cerulean Warbler Summit in Bogota, Colombia, held at the National Federation of Colombian Coffee Growers headquarters, the group of “Juan Valdez” fame. “We do not want to be known as the destroyers of birds,” says the Juan Valdez

Federation. Although at first she was afraid to go because she’d heard stories of kidnappings, she had a great time. “There was a guerrilla presence, but there were also little kids in a parade wearing Cerulean Warbler outfits,” Katie said. The talk ended with Katie giving a few guidelines about how to help the Cerulean Warblers. She suggested buying certified shade-grown coffee from Central or South America that has a bird-friendly patch. She mentioned the website birdsandbeans.com as a source for informa-

tion. She also advocated speaking out against mountain top removal coal-mining and advised supporting organizations that fund songbird conservation research. For bird lovers, she suggested traveling to areas known to harbor Cerulean Warblers and tell local people you’re there to watch birds to convey the message that “birds are good for business”. Cerulean Blues has won praise from reviewers. It was nominated for Orion Magazine’s book award, was listed in BirdWatching Magazine’s review of

CBI (aka CRC) cheetah cubs arrive at National Zoo Having two hand-raised cubs presented a unique opportunity to bring the animals to the Zoo, according to Tony Barthel, curator of the Zoo’s Cheetah Conservation Station, where the new cubs will live. Ally and Caprivi were paired at the recommendation of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ Species Survival Plan for cheetahs. The SSP matches animals across the country to ensure genetic diversity in the population. The mortality rate for cheetah cubs in human care born under normal circumstances is 20 percent during the first six months, compared to a mortality rate of up to 70 percent in the wild population in east Africa. Cheetahs, the fastest animals on land, are struggling to outpace threats to their

survival in the wild. As the result of human conflict, hunting and habitat loss, there are only an estimated 7,500 to 10,000 cheetahs left in the wild. The International Union for Conservation of Nature considers cheetahs a vulnerable species. The Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute plays a key role in the Smithsonian’s global efforts to understand and conserve species and train future generations of conservationists. Headquartered in Front Royal, Va., SCBI facilitates and promotes research programs based at Front Royal, the National Zoo in Washington, D.C., and at field research stations and training sites worldwide. – From a release

BUDGET SELF STORAGE Photo by Adrienne Crosier, Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute Three weeks after their unconventional and rocky entrance into the world, two 3week-old cheetahs were transported May 18 to the Smithsonian’s National Zoo in good health, thanks to the hard work and swift actions of animal care staff at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute in Front Royal, Va. The cubs are being hand-raised at the Zoo and will require around-theclock care until they are ready to make their public debut late this summer. Five-year-old cheetah and first-time mom Ally gave birth to the first cub, a male, April 23. However, instead of nursing

and cleaning the cub, she abandoned him, which is relatively common for first-time mothers under human care. Cheetah keepers moved the cub to the veterinary hospital to be treated for severe hypothermia. When Ally suddenly stopped having contractions hours later, SCBI head vet Dr. Copper Aitken-Palmer anesthetized her to see if she had additional cubs. Aitken-Palmer heard additional heartbeats and performed a radiograph to determine that three cubs remained. She performed a cesarean section, a procedure rarely used on cheetahs and one that cubs do not often survive. A

team of veterinarians, keepers and scientists worked for three hours to resuscitate the three cubs, performing CPR, administrating medications and rubbing the cubs to dry and warm them. One of the three cubs, a female, did survive. “Given how rare this procedure is, we thought it’d be unlikely for any of the cubs to survive,” said Adrienne Crosier, SCBI cheetah biologist. “But that little female is a fighter. Once we got her breathing, she just kept going. It was a very intense, stressful experience, but among the most inspiring of my career.” Both cubs and their mother were in intensive care for the following three days. The cubs’ father, Caprivi, was brought to the veterinary hospital to donate plasma to the cubs to boost their immune systems. Today both cubs and their mother appear to be in good health, though animal care staff is continuing to monitor all three carefully. “There are now two new genetically valuable cubs in a population that so desperately needs them,” Aitken-Palmer said. “So this is really a success for this struggling species.” Because Ally rejected the first cub, animal care staff is hand raising both cubs, which requires bottle feeding every few hours.

Ask Stewart Dear Stewart: Is ivy growing up a tree really going to kill it? If so, how can I safely remove the ivy and prevent it from growing again? Would weed killer hurt the tree? Lady in Browntown Dear “Lady”

Ask Stewart 540-635-4734

English Ivy is one of those plants that are oh, so pretty and romantic, draping from the trees and their branches. Or maybe it is mysterious; I don’t know why humans seem to really like it on their trees. But we squirrels are not so fond of it. Not only does it cause a trip hazard for us, and let me tell you tripping on a branch forty feet up can be a very, very bad thing. But it also provides a

place for nasty things like snakes and hawks to hide while watching for a squirrel dinner to run by. And it’s really bad for the tree. The rootlets of the ivy worm their way deep into the bark, opening up areas for disease and insects to enter the tree. Debris builds up in the vines and holds moisture next to the bark. This can cause rot and fungal growth that further weakens the tree. The weight of the ivy as it grows can even pull the bark right off the tree causing large wounds. If the vines are just starting to grow up the tree, they can be gently pulled off by hand. If they are already grown, they are too deeply embedded to pull them free. Instead cut the vines at the base, taking care not to hurt the tree bark in the process, and allow them to die on their own. The leaves will fall within a month

The Front Royal/Warren County Tree Steward program began in 1997 with volunteers dedicated to improving the health of trees by providing educational programs, tree planting and care demonstrations, and tree maintenance throughout the community. The group now consists of over 30 active members with several interns working toward becoming certified tree stewards from our annual “All About Trees Class”. Each month Stewart will answer a question from our readers. Please forward it to “Stewart” in care of frwctreestewards@comcast.net and we may publish it in a future issue. Please visit our website at www.treesfrontroyal.org.

or two. But I’m afraid you will be left with the vine network for several years before they begin to break loose from the bark. Some weed killers are ok to use as long as they don’t get on the foliage of the tree. But for a large, fully covered tree, you can’t spray enough of the ivy to kill it without damaging the other. And other herbicides can’t be used as they could enter the tree through the bark and kill it. So, chemical controls aren’t really the best method of dealing with these vines. Instead use them on the ground to keep the ivy well back from the tree in the first place. And thanks in advance for saving us squirrels from a nasty fall.
