FRLP boundary adjustment taken under advisement State Commission on Local Government hears all the arguments By Roger Bianchini Warren County Report After three hours of tours and give and take about the economic, infrastructure and growth dynamics between town and county officials and the Commission on Local Government (CLG) in the afternoon, it was the public’s turn to weigh in on the proposed Front Royal Limited Partnership boundary adjustment the evening of Nov. 18. And after another hour, the CLG took all that they had heard under advisement. Chairman John Kines Jr. said a Public Comment period will remain open till December 2. A report will then be assembled and should be available by the end of January 2014, at which point the commission will schedule a meeting to present its findings and recommendation on the advisability of the friendly town-county annexation from a state perspective. Information on submitting further input is avail-

able on the CLG website or may be mailed to: The Commission on Local Government, 600 East Main St., Suite 300, Richmond, VA 23219. As for the dynamics and opinions involved, voiced by five citizens at the Nov. 18 CLG Public Hearing – well, you’ve heard it all before on these pages over the past year since FRLP principal David Vazzana notified the Town of Front Royal and Warren County that on September 20, 2012, that he was initiating a citizen-requested boundary adjustment of 604 acres of Agriculturally-zoned county pasture land into the town limits. Local opposition has largely come from long-time residents of remote neighborhoods off Mary’s Shady Lane between the FRLP property and the Shenandoah River. The argument – this is beautiful, rural, Agricultural land buffering us from the slings and arrows of the modern world, and we’d sure like it to stay that way, was expressed by three of five speakers

at the Nov. 18 public hearing. From adjoining neighborhoods were Dan McCarty, Mike Challis and Ramona Bowden. Mike Malone added concerns about transportation plans, the timing of new road construction and emergency services access. He wondered if I-66 access – though controlled by federal agencies – could be added to the transportation plan. Stan Brooks wondered at plans for large swaths of new development controlled by outside developers and the nature of small-town Front Royal being lost in the mix. McCarty and Brooks also criticized the concept of “growth zones” that was part of the rationale for moving the FRLP land into town as a prime target of future residential and commercial growth. Brooks called growth zones “one of the most intrusive state mandates in some time.” UDAs, or growth zones, were specified for future development due to their proximity to existing devel-

opment and utility infrastructure. They were designed to funnel future clustered growth toward towns and city residential centers, giving rural, county land a chance to remain agricultural. The FRLP parcel is bordered by Happy Creek Road and town neighborhoods to the south; I-66, riverside Shenandoah River Estates and some other rural residential development to the north; Shenandoah Shores Road and its residential, commercial and industrial-technology park development to the east; and several large single home parcels and more town neighborhood development to the west. In recent years the idea of UDAs fell afoul of more extreme elements of the Republican Party over concerns about property rights to develop any land, anywhere, in any manner to the exclusive and maximum profit potential of land owners. In fact, some opponents addressing local government characterized Ur-

ban Development Areas as part of a UN-fueled international conspiracy against American property owners. However, at the county supervisors meeting the following day, County Attorney Blair Mitchell told the board he felt the county, town and FRLP case for a Voluntary Settlement Agreement bringing the land into town had been well received by the commission members. “It was a long, tiring day with a lot of give and take … but from the feedback I think we will be treated very favorably,” Mitchell said. Apparently the UN’s tentacles are everywhere.

Front Royal’s Southerlands was inspected in October and getting the two-year licensing was dependent on whether there were inspection violations or not. Brewer also mentioned that Southerlands will soon begin their project for a $1.5 million Alzheimer’s unit. “This will be part of our own custom program called ‘Sweet Memories’, said Brewer. “We see a growing need for this. We’re facing an ‘Aging Tsunami’ and the need grows because home care is not meeting it,� he added.

Front Royal fugitive wanted on fraud charges nabbed ‘I said paint it, not scrap it’ – how confusing can that be?!!?

By Roger Bianchini Warren County Report

A 40-year-old Front Royal man wanted on at least 11 charges in six jurisdictions in two states was captured in Anne Arundel County, MD the evening of Nov. 10. Anthony “Tony� Wayne Williams had been on the run from active warrants, primarily fraud charges, for four months before his arrest by Anne Arundel authorities at approximately 8:30

p.m. at Old Mill Rd and SB Veterans Highway�. The Front Royal Police Department had issued “WANTED� press release on Williams earlier in the day he was arrested. That release detailed two felony warrants issued here on Nov. 4 against Williams. “Williams was charged November 4, 2013 for Felony Grand Larceny and Obtaining Money by False Pretenses when he sold a vehicle that didn’t belong to him.

Local boy to undergo heart surgery, Nov. 30 fundraiser By Sue Golden

Imagine being a five year old that was born with an extremely bad

heart. Checkups every six months are routine. But you are still a little boy, wanting to be . . . a little boy. You want to ride monster trucks and play

football and go to school, like everyone else. Now imagine being the parents of this boy. You want to hold him close and keep him still and protect him. But he needs to go to school. And he wants to play. Where is the line of demarcation between protecting and denying his wants? The Sayan family of Stephens City has been caught in this conundrum since Andrew was born five years ago. Andrew was born with a severe case of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), which causes the heart muscle to enlarge. Heard about the teenage athletes who suddenly die while playing football? They most likely had an undiagnosed case of HCM. It is a hereditary disease, which fortunately no one else in the Sayan family has. Andrew’s HCM was diagnosed early. He goes for checkups every six months. He is in kindergarten at Bass Hoover, where they have a defibrillator. He loves monster trucks and football, in particular the Washington Redskins. His heart condition is getting worse. Andrew, the youngest of four, was supposed to have heart surgery at the University of Virginia on December

3rd, but the doctors at UVA decided Andrew needed the top doctors at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. The doctors at the Mayo Clinic will perform open heart surgery, scraping the excess muscle from Andrew’s heart. Because he is so young, Andrew will likely need open heart surgery again. Andrew is expected to be at the Mayo Clinic for testing prior to his surgery. After his surgery, Andrew is expected to be in the hospital up to seven days. He will spend the next eight weeks or so recovering at home. To defray the cost of Andrew’s surgery and all of the traveling, his family and friends are having a fundraiser at the Winchester Moose Lodge on November 30th. Doors open at 5:30 pm. There will be door prizes, raffles and a silent auction. Band of Tribes will play at 7 pm. Michael Hoover will headline with “Memories of El-

Colleagues fondly recall former Supervisor Glenn White An old school politician â&#x20AC;&#x201C; polite, willing to work together for the public good By Roger Bianchini Warren County Report In the wake of Glenn Whiteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent passing we asked one of his former colleagues about Glennâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work for this community. This is what Richard Traczyk told us: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Glenn White was elected to the Board of Supervisors from 2008 through 2011. Glenn was a staunch Democrat but served out his four year term with a Republican Board majority. During the period that I worked with him, I found Glenn to be truly dedicated to the betterment of our community. He always was well informed about issues

before the Board and always willing to reason and compromise â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a quality our federal Government seems to have lost. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He never missed meetings and was always trying to work for his constituents on issues in his district. As a member of the board, Glenn was Warren Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s representative for the Regional Jail project, as well as other big projects such as the renovation of Warren County High School to the new Middle School, the Warren County Public Safety Building, and the Dominion Power project.â&#x20AC;? As noted in a county release, Glenn also served on the County Planning Commission from 2000 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 2003, and as Chairman of the Warren County Airport Commission and the Virginia Airshow Executive Committee. He served a Board of Supervisorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s repre-

sentative on the Northern Shenandoah Valley Regional Commission, North Warren VFC Title Holding Company, and the Winchester Regional Airport Authority. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Warren County Board of Supervisors expresses its appreciation for Glenn Whiteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contributions for the outstanding leadership and ser-

A family photo. From left are John, Pat and Thomas Grant IV. Courtesy photo/Facebook. Friends and family said goodbye to Thomas A. Grant IV, a great friend and person, during services at Front Royal United Methodist Church on Nov. 16. Grant, 41, succumbed to a lifelong battle with sickle-cell anemia on Nov. 8. The son of former WCHS counselor Patricia “Pat” Grant, who preceded her son several years ago and the late Thomas Alphonso Grant III, is survived by brother John, now a resident of Arizona, an aunt, Hattie Thompson, and immediate cousins Monica Williams, Dorenda Thompson and Sam Haley. Grant was known for his musical abilities which led him to Jazz Studies at Shenandoah University before pursuing a career in Information Technology. However, his love of jazz and his saxophone was never far from the surface – and he was sent on his way to a selection of great jazz music assembled by his brother John for the Church services, appropriately in front of a packed house. A friend also noted that Thomas was the inspiration for the sax player and John for the trumpeter, in the painting over the stage at Front Royal’s Lucky Star Lounge on East Main Street. Thomas was interred at Good Hope Cemetery in Front Royal and then further remembered during a dinner hosted by the family at John Wesley United Methodist Church.

Circuit Court Grand Jury charges Richard Allen Ralls, 32, of 100 Windy Hill Ct., Bentonville, VA 22610, with two counts: COUNT ONE: In the County of Warren, Richard Allen Ralls did unlawfully and feloniously attempt to commit the crime of Grand Larceny, a felony. COUNT TWO: Richard Allen Ralls did unlawfully and feloniously break and enter the dwelling of Simon Henry with the intention to commit larceny. Dates of the offenses were on or between June 7 and 17, 2013.

“You’re a hero,” Mayor Minor said after she presented seven-yearold Nayshon Cook with a resolution that recognized his bravery during an emergency.  On July 19, 2013, Nayshon called the 9-1-1 and advised the dispatcher that his mother had suffered from a seizure. Nayshon was home alone with her and other small children and requested an ambulance. Though under extreme stress, Nayshon remained calm and was able to direct emergency responders to their location and provide updates on his mother’s condition. The Winchester Emergency Communications Center (ECC) staff found Nayshon’s calm demeanor and concern for his mother’s wellbeing to be astonishing for a person so young. In response, City Council warmly welcomed Nayshon and his family to the November 12th Council meeting and presented him with a resolution acknowledging his bravery and concern for his mother and siblings.

Why focus attention on the Kennedy assassination now?

Five months after the Bay of Pigs, on Sept. 27, 1961, President Kennedy announced John McCone, right, would replace Allen Dulles, center, as Director of the CIA. Presidents Kennedy and Eisenhower at Camp David, April 22, 1961, five days after the first crisis of JFKâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presidency, the failed CIA-sponsored Bay of Pigs invasion. By Roger Bianchini Warren County Report When Dan McDermott and yours truly got together in the summer of 2006 with the idea of starting a truly independent and local â&#x20AC;&#x153;news magazineâ&#x20AC;? that would go into more detail about how our community works than mainstream newspapers can or will, we needed a name. Dan suggested Warren County Report and I countered with The Warren Report. My suggestion was a takeoff on the name given to the 1964 report on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy issued by The Warren Commission headed by U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren. The reportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conclusion, defied by logic, science, fact and common sense that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in killing President Kennedy is a topic of hot debate to this

So, it is as Warren County Report we became the most read newspaper in the county, and eventually even got some of those international hits as we reported local angles on not only national, but occasionally international stories.

opinion to this day there is no more relevant story with ongoing local, national and international implications than the Kennedy presidency and its premature end. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The total influence â&#x20AC;&#x201C; economic, political, even spiritual â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is felt in every city, every Statehouse, every office of the Federal government â&#x20AC;Ś we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.â&#x20AC;? No, President Dwight David Eisenhower wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t speaking of the assassination of his successor. Rather on Jan. 17, 1961, in his Farewell Address to the nation three days before Kennedyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inauguration, Eisenhower was addressing the rising influence of the dominant economic, military, political and intelligence institutions he, Kennedy and every president since has been confronted with in office. One-thousand-and-seventy days after Eisenhowerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s observations about the changing and precarious balance of internal American power

structures, his successor was murdered on the streets of Dallas, Texas, as he began campaigning for what was expected to be a landslide 1964 re-election victory. Was it a coincidence that assassination came after President Kennedy

had a series of contentious, even bitter confrontations with U.S. military and intelligence leaders over foreign policy decisions involving U.S. aggression against communist Cuba and an expanded U.S. military presence in Vietnam? Was it also coincidence that President Kennedy rocked the boat over the method of awarding billion-dollar military equipment contracts? It really doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter. Fifty years later, from the jungles of Vietnam to the deserts and mountains of the Middle East and all points between, we have developed the very foreign policy Kennedy fought â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pax Americana enforced on the world by American weapons of warâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; our own variation of George Orwellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perpetual war for perpetual peace described in his totalitarian nightmare novel â&#x20AC;&#x153;1984â&#x20AC;?. We also have developed social and economic policies that have facilitated the greatest separation of wealth between the few and the many in American history. It is a separation characterized by a declining middle class struggling not to fall into overwhelming debt, some even before

Today laws have been changed, not only legislatively, but judicially as well: 1/ enabling money, rather than ideas to become the dominant political force in America; and 2/ consolidating control of the public airwaves and dissemination of information into the hands of a very few megacorporations. We live in a nation in

which the truth has become criminal; where BIG economic crime has become legal or at least immune from prosecution; and the free spending of money to suppress the truth and forward lies has become political gospel and corporate media business as usual.

It is a â&#x20AC;&#x153;brave, new worldâ&#x20AC;? built on a BIG LIE and a BIG CRIME perpetrated on November 22, 1963. And by the way And but for Kennedyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1,067 days in office it would likely be a far different world we would, or would not inhabit today. As later-released Soviet intelligence documents indicated, rather than retreat quietly into the night as the U.S. Joint Chiefs theorized, aggressive U.S. military action sought in both April 1961 and October 1962 against Cuba would have led to a Soviet tactical military response. That response would have included Soviet submarines armed with nuclear-tipped torpedoes targeting American warships attacking Russian ships bound for Cuba. And with other Soviet subs in the area also armed with offensive nuclear weapons, from that moment on, in the militaristic climate of the times in both nations, nuclear escalation seemed assured and all bets on the future of mankind would have been off the table. Expected to win the 1960 election, Eisenhowerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s staunch anti-communist Vice President Richard Nixon was anticipated to be a hard-line supporter of U.S. military intentions against Cuba. Had Nixon won that razor-tight 1960 presidential election it is possible none of us would be here to read or argue about this â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or anything else.

JFK & history

Pointing the finger: if not Lee Harvey Oswald, who? Solving the murder mystery of our time â&#x20AC;&#x201C; naming names and motives

The fatal head shot sequence from the Zapruder film: first frame Kennedy is reaching for his throat after being hit in the upper back; two, the head shot moment of impact; three, JFK is thrown back and spray from his skull is still visible above his head; four, blurry image of the gaping head wound. By Roger Bianchini Warren County Report I know one thing without the shadow of a doubt â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Lee Harvey Oswald, who had a military intelligence base posting interrupted by his 1959-62 â&#x20AC;&#x153;defectionâ&#x20AC;? to the Soviet Union, did not kill John F. Kennedy. In fact, if he fired a shot at the president it is likely the one that missed and hit a curb throwing cement into the face of a bystander. And Oswald may even be pictured standing on the front steps of the School Book Depository in the famous photo through the presidential limousine windshield showing secret service agents looking over their shoulders after the first shot was fired hitting Kennedy in the back.. Just be reminded of these facts: 1/ No one has ever been able to duplicate Oswaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supposed timeframe or killing accuracy with a World War II-era, bolt-action Italian ManlicherCarcano rifle; 2/ upon his return from his Soviet â&#x20AC;&#x153;defectionâ&#x20AC;? with classified information concerning American U-2 spy flights over the Soviet Union, rather than greeted with a court martial or prison, Oswald was simply debriefed by the FBI; and the CIA â&#x20AC;&#x201C; maybe they did, maybe they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t and hundreds of CIA files on Oswald remain classified to this day; 3/ both local and federal law enforcement officials claim they did not bother to record interviews with Oswald over two days in custody as the suspect in the assassination, and that any notes taken were â&#x20AC;&#x153;lostâ&#x20AC;?. Really?!!? In his one brief appearance before the media Oswald was asked if he killed the president. He responded that he had not been charged with that and had only been questioned about killing a Dallas police officer (J.D. Tippett). Told by a reporter he had been charged with killing the president, Oswald appeared visibly shaken and did not reply. Earlier, while being moved through hallways by police, in response to re-

porter questions yelled at him about the assassination, Oswald replied, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what facts you people have been getting but I emphatically deny these charges,â&#x20AC;? and, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t kill anybody, no sir.â&#x20AC;? But if not Oswald from the Texas School Book Depository, who, how and why? On November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy found himself on the â&#x20AC;&#x153;enemies listâ&#x20AC;? of two of the most powerful Mafia bosses in the United States; the mob-connected head of the national Teamsters truckers union; several members of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff; CIA officials and operatives supporting Kennedyfired CIA Director Allen Dulles and

a U.S.-assisted military invasion of Cuba and expanded operations in Vietnam; not to mention corporate America waiting in the wings for war contracts and profits to start pouring in. It was a perfect storm of the wrong people to be on the wrong side of, even for a President of the United States. The mob connection Among all the conspiracy theories, one first provided by journalist and author Stephen Rivele in the 1981 rings most substantial on a portion of the motive for, the method and players involved, as well as how far into

the halls of government complicity in the assassination went. Riveleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theory was presented in the excellent, six-part 1989 Nigel Turner-produced British TV documentary â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Men Who Killed Kennedy. Riveleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s primary source was a Corsican gangster and drug trafficker named Christian David. David identified Marseilles-based mobster and heroin trafficker Antoine Guerini as organizer of the Kennedy assassination. David explained that Guerini took the JFK murder contract after David himself had turned it down as too problematic and dangerous. However, the source of the contract was not foreign to American soil, but domestic. The trail Riveleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sources drew led to two U.S. mob bosses, Carlos Marcello and Santos Trafficante Jr. Rivele says these U.S. mobsters went to Europe to contract such a high-profile hit because of their already high profiles with the Kennedy Administration and U.S.

law enforcement. Louisiana boss Marcello had extensive connections in Dallas and Europe. Targeted by the RFK-led Justice Department, Marcello was once temporarily deported to Guatemala by the Kennedy Administration. According to his biographer, this alone assured Marcelloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;eternal wrathâ&#x20AC;? against the Kennedys. South Florida boss Trafficante, like the CIA, U.S. military and anti-Castro dissidents, had a vested interest in seeing Cuba, where pre-revolution he and his associates had essentially been Batista government-protected businessman, freed of the rule of Fidel Castro. Many years after the assassination, Trafficanteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long-time attorney Frank Ragano wrote in his autobiography â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mob Lawyerâ&#x20AC;? that Marcello told him not long after the assassination, â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you see Jimmy, you See OSWALD, 25

JFK & history

50 years on - Revisiting a Lost American Dream Did this worldview propel forward the events of November 22, 1963? By Roger Bianchini Warren County Report In 2007, what I consider the most important holiday in our culture, Thanksgiving, came and went on Nov. 22, a fact that led me to first reflect on these pages about the presidency of John Fitzgerald Kennedy and his Nov. 22, 1963 assassination. At that time I quoted from Kennedyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Commencement Address at American University delivered on June 10, 1963, just over five months before his assassination. It was also delivered just seven months after Kennedy and Russian Premier Nikita Khrushchev, ignoring the respective advice of their military hierarchies, brought the world back from the precipice of nuclear war during the Cuban mis-

sile crisis. I focused then and will here again on that commencement address. Why? Because in it President Kennedy described his worldview and vision of the role America should play on the international stage. It is a far different worldview than the one that has guided American foreign policy in the half century since Kennedyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death. Regardless of what you believe about who pulled the trigger(s) that day in Dallas, it is still true that Kennedyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death opened the door for the ascension of a far different and more cynical worldview that shaped the next half century of U.S. foreign policy, and corporate profiteering from that policy, that dominates the world into the early 21st Century.

equally true today. He did not refer to spires and towers, to campus greens and ivied walls. He admired the splendid beauty of the university, he said, because it was â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;a place where those who hate ignorance may strive to know, where those who perceive truth may strive to make others see.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have, therefore, chosen this time and this place to discuss a topic on which ignorance too often abounds and the truth is too rarely perceived â&#x20AC;&#x201C; yet it is the most important topic on earth â&#x20AC;&#x201C; world peace. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What kind of peace do I mean? What kind of peace do we seek? Not a Pax Americana enforced on the world by American weapons of war. Not the peace of the grave or the security of the slave. I am talking about genuine peace, the kind of peace that makes life on earth worth living, the kind that enables men and nations to grow and to hope and to build a better life for their children â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not merely peace for Americans but peace for all men and women â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not merely peace in our time but peace for all time â&#x20AC;Ś I speak of peace, therefore, as the necessary rational end of rational men. I realize that the pursuit of peace is not as dramatic as the pursuit of war â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and frequently the words of the

pursuer fall on deaf ears. But we have no more urgent task. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some say that it is useless to speak of world peace or world law or world disarmament â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and that it will be useless until the leaders of [other nations] adopt a more enlightened attitude. I hope they do. I believe we can help them do it. But I also believe that we must re-examine our own attitude â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as individuals and as a nation â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for our attitude is as essential as theirs. And every graduate of this school, every thoughtful citizen who despairs of war and wishes to bring peace, should begin by looking inward â&#x20AC;&#x201C; by examining his own attitude toward the possibilities of peace ... â&#x20AC;&#x153;First: Let us examine our attitude toward peace itself. Too many of us think it is impossible. Too many think it unreal. But that is a dangerous, defeatist belief. It leads to the conclusion that war is inevitable â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that mankind is doomed â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that we are gripped by forces we cannot control. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need not accept that view. Our problems are manmade â&#x20AC;&#x201C; therefore they can be solved by man â&#x20AC;Ś See JFK, 24

The Lost Game

Gridiron memories of Nov. 22, 1963

A disaffected assassination researcher in 1970 By Roger Bianchini Nov. 22, 2003 I was playing quarterback in a high school, intramural, flag-football championship game around 1:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Nov. 22, 1963. The game went into overtime as the class time ground into its last minutes. My team needed a score to even the alternating possession OT (we were ahead of our time) and extend things to the following day. Impatient, I lofted one deep and up for grabs – like Brett Favre occasionally does – that some defender out jumped my guy for. BANG! We lost, no tomorrow. Little did I know that the bang of defeat that had just gone off in my head was the mere echo of a much

louder bang that went off almost simultaneously 1,330 miles to the southwest. That other bang I had yet to hear was one of another kind of defeat that I will, it seems, carry with me to the grave. Somewhat dejected I headed back to the locker room to shower before heading to my fifth period English class. Someone ran out of the locker room to meet us and said, “The president’s been shot!” Bullshit, that kind of thing doesn’t happen except in history books, I thought, “That’s not funny,” I said. Inside the Alexandria, Virginia high school, not eight miles from the White House, things seemed normal as I prepared to shower. No solemn faced coaches, no lock down to protect then Republican House Minority Whip Gerald Ford’s sons. “The pres-

ident’s been shot” was lost beneath what seemed normal adolescent, locker room banter. I began to return to a 15-year-old’s reality: of sport, of girls, of … Then the PA system crackled and the locker room went unnaturally silent as the principal’s voice, not a secretary’s, asked for attention. A chill went down my spine, perhaps as a subconscious premonition that things were about to change in previously unimaginable ways flashed along sub-atomic particles throughout my brain. The tone first, then the words “President Kennedy has been shot” gravely confirmed what I had immediately denied as a plausible reality. One kid, a little red around the edges for that suburban Alexandria high school said, “Good.” Though we were casual friends and recent teammates, I started swinging and we went into a pile on the floor only to be quickly pulled apart by classmates and coaches. I had never wanted to damage someone as irrevocably as I did at that moment and the two of us never spoke again, leaving a silent distance between us that precluded the necessity of re-engaging that primal impulse toward some sort of irreversible destruction. The emotions were immediate, deep and apparently ran in the family. I didn’t find out until years later that at almost the same moment, following a similar remark, my father, a WWII Army veteran who had lived through Normandy and the Battle of the Bulge, was decking a total stranger in a D.C. medical building on I Street where he was waiting for my mother to complete a routine checkup. Across the Potomac River, we sat quietly in our classrooms: no teaching, no discussion, no emergency mentoring. We sat alone, grappling with our thoughts, as was our teacher. The principal came on again and said the president was dead. The reaction

was subdued except for a girl named Jacqueline Kennedy – though I think she spelled her first name differently than the president’s wife, though I’ll be damned if I can remember how. Spelling aside she went off, sobbing, hysteria rising. The teacher took her outside the room to settle her down. Didn’t work, she ended up in the infirmary. I sometimes wonder what happened to Jackie Kennedy, my classmate. How did she ride out that 15-year-old’s identification with the queen of Camelot? Now 50 years later, I know that day was the measurable beginning of the direction of the balance of my life. Despite the immediate profundity of a presidential assassination, I couldn’t have recognized that JFK’s violent death would lead directly through a five-year span of political upheaval between my formative 15th and 20th birthdays. JFK’s and three other domestic assassinations – Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Francis Kennedy – seemed to earmark the time through a litany of foreign political intrigue, murder and assassination that always seemed to lead in one direction – toward the political right, toward war, toward corporate profiteering from war; and toward social division and public lies. That is my perception, my belief – the bad guys won. That is my psychological watershed. Rather than living under the auspice of a state favored by both man and God, I was floating through the most recent episode of civilization in decline, fueled by greed, power, murder and conquest. It took all of those next five years for me to begin to appreciate what had begun during that lost football game. By 1969 it was becoming apparent that a hopeful youth-driven world counterculture, as well as the best and the brightest within world political systems reflecting or inspiring the social idealism, whether under U.S. or Soviet influence … were beaten. Around the world we had lost. We would either be annihilated or assimilated, a foolish, inaccurate footnote to American and World History X – the fiction written by the winners. I left Alexandria in 1967 for college … I followed my intellectual instincts for the next five years, studying sociology and psychology - how society and the human mind work. I guess I wanted to know why I had grown so alienated from the culture in which I

lived. Was I crazy or did I live in an insane world? I learned things about myself and my society between 1967 and 1973 and most of what I learned took me back to the day my team lost that high school intramural football game. In college I learned that three days before John Kennedy’s inauguration, his predecessor, Dwight David Eisenhower, made an astonishing observation in his farewell address to the nation … On Jan. 17, 1961, Eisenhower, the West Point graduate, career military man, general and president who led his country and its allies, first against Nazi Germany and then through the height of the Cold War with the Soviet Union, told his nation that the greatest threat it faced as he prepared to leave office was that born of its own military and corporate institutions in a profoundly changing American landscape. “This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience,” Eisenhower told the American people of the corporate, political and military landscape that had arisen in the wake of World War II. “The total influence - economic, political, even spiritual - is felt in every city, every Statehouse, every office of the Federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society. “In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the militaryindustrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist,” Eisenhower concluded. The career soldier turned politician had apparently not thought it a sin to normalize relations with the Soviet Union, then our recent military ally, and reduce the rapidly expanding American military budget. This belief, according to Eisenhower biographers, led to much behindthe-scene infighting with the evolving military and industrial institutions Eisenhower spoke of at the end of his eight-year presidency. Less than three years after Eisenhower’s dour warning his successor had his head blown off in the streets See GRIDIRON, 26

JFK & history JFK, from 22 “I am not referring to the absolute, infinite concept of universal peace and good will of which some fantasies and fanatics dream. I do not deny the value of hopes and dreams, but we merely invite discouragement and incredulity by making that our only and immediate goal. “Let us focus instead on a more practical, more attainable peace – based not on a sudden revolution in human nature but on a gradual evolution in human institutions – on a series of concrete actions and effective agreements, which are in the interest of all concerned. There is no single, simple key to this peace – no grand or magic formula to be adopted by one or two powers. Genuine peace must be the product of many nations, the sum of many acts. It must be dynamic, not static, changing to meet the challenge of each new generation. For peace is a process – a way of solving problems. “With such a peace, there will still be quarrels and conflicting interests, as there are within families and nations. World peace, like community peace, does not require that each man love his neighbor – it requires only that they live together in mutual tolerance, submitting their disputes to a just and peaceful settlement. And history teaches us that enmities between nations, as between individuals, do not last forever. However fixed our likes and dislikes may seem, the tide of time and events will often

bring surprising changes in the relations between nations and neighbors … “No government or social system is so evil that its people must be considered as lacking in virtue. As Americans, we find communism profoundly repugnant as a negation of personal freedom and dignity. But we can still hail the Russian people for their many achievements – in science and space, in economic and industrial growth, in culture and in acts of courage … “So, let us not be blind to our differences – but let us also direct attention to our common interests and to the means by which those differences can be resolved. And if we cannot end now our differences, at least we can help make the world safe for diversity. For, in the final analysis, our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this small planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children’s future. And we are all mortal. “Above all, while defending our own vital interests, nuclear powers must avert those confrontations, which bring an adversary to a choice of either a humiliating retreat or a nuclear war. To adopt that kind of course in the nuclear age would be evidence only of the bankruptcy of our policy – or of a collective death wish for the world … “For we can seek a relaxation of tensions without relaxing our guard; and, for our part, we do not need to use threats to prove that we are reso-

“What kind of peace do we seek? Not a Pax Americana enforced on the world by American weapons of war … I am talking about genuine peace, the kind of peace that makes life on earth worth living … not merely peace for Americans but peace for all men and women.” – JFK lute … We are unwilling to impose our system on any unwilling people – but we are willing and able to engage in peaceful competition with any people on earth. “For there can be no doubt that, if all nations could refrain from interfering in the self-determination of others, the peace would be much more assured … This will require a new effort to achieve world law – a new context for world discussions. It will require increased understanding ... And increased understanding will require increased contact and communication … “Finally, my fellow Americans, let us examine our attitude toward peace and freedom here at home. The quality and spirit of our own society must justify and support our efforts abroad. We must show it in the dedication of our own lives … we must all, in our daily lives, live up to the age-old faith that peace and freedom walk together. In too many of our cities today, the peace is not secure because freedom is incomplete. “It is the responsibility of the executive branch at all levels of government – local, state and national – to provide and protect that freedom for all of our citizens by all means within their authority … “All this is not unrelated to world peace. ‘When a man’s ways please the Lord,’ the Scriptures tell us, ‘he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.’ And is not peace, in the last analysis, basically a matter of human rights – the right to live out our lives without fear of devastation

– the right to breathe air as nature provided it – the right of future generations to a healthy existence? “While we proceed to safeguard our national interests, let us also safeguard human interests. And the elimination of war and arms is clearly in the interest of both …” Bringing his speech to a close, President Kennedy reflected his generation’s experience of war with a statement and promise to the world that certainly now seems hollow in a nation that has declared a perpetual war without boundaries to assure its national interests and safety. It is a tactic that is ultimately self-defeating, fostered not in the world of international leadership by example Kennedy suggested, but rather in one promoted by force and subterfuge to achieve economic colonialism. “The United States, as the world knows, will never start a war. We do not want a war. We do not now expect a war. This generation of Americans has already had enough – more

than enough – of war and hate and oppression. We shall be prepared if others wish it. We shall be alert to try to stop it. But we shall also do our part to build a world of peace where the weak are safe and the strong are just. We are not helpless before that task or hopeless of its success. Confident and unafraid, we labor on – not toward a strategy of annihilation but toward a strategy of peace.” Postscript Unfortunately, history tells us Kennedy’s vision expressed that day of a peaceful future of cooperation and communication with not only this nation’s allies, but its adversaries as well, died with the President five months later on the streets of Dallas, Texas. Kennedy’s verbal message “the hawks are rising,” delivered to Soviet Premier Khrushchev during the Cuban Missile Crisis, expressing the political and military climate he was operating in, has held sway since November 22, 1963.

I’ll never forget what Carlos and Santos did for me … This means Bobby is out as attorney general,” Ragano wrote of Hoffa’s reaction to the JFK assassination. Part of David’s scenario was that the CIA knew about and covered up the mob involvement in the assassination. Rivele claimed that his information from David was eventually confirmed by sources within both the CIA and Soviet KGB, the latter of which had an overwhelming interest

in ascertaining what really happened, since Oswald was being identified, not only as the lone shooter, but also as a past defector to the Soviet Union and possible Soviet sleeper agent with ties to Castro Cuba. Hitman David named a Corsican drug dealer and hitman named Lucien Sarti and fellow Marseilles mobsters Roger Bocagnani (no relation) and Sauveur Pironti as members of a hit team smuggled into the U.S. through Mexico and out through Canada. Pironti later denied the accusation to a French newspaper. However, David even detailed that Sarti, who had been involved in the famed French Connection heroin ring, had been paid for the Kennedy hit in a quantity

of heroin for his drug business. David also detailed that Sarti was known for using fragmenting or exploding ammunition that left no forensic trail. As the Zapruder film of the assassination shows, the right side of Kennedy’s head literally exploded after being hit with a front shot likely to have originated from a sewer drain in front of the Kennedy car, giving Sarti or anyone, a straighton shot from much closer range than other shots could have been fired at the president that day. Clint Hill is famous for being the Secret Service Agent who leapt onto the back of the presidential limousine, pushing Mrs. Kennedy back from the trunk – where she testified to the Warren Commission she had gone to retrieve a portion of her husband’s skull.

JFK & history As first responder on the scene, in the documentary “The Lost JFK Tapes: The Assassination” Hill described what he saw: “When I got up on the car, Mrs. Kennedy came up on the trunk. I got a hold of her and put her in the back seat. When I did that he fell into her lap but the right side of his face was up, his eyes were fixed; I could see into the skull – there was a hole in his skull – you could see the front of the brain was gone, it wasn’t even there …” Murder Incorporated As a footnote to the mob contract and CIA cover-up scenario, I note that U.S. government operational ties to organized crime go back to World War II, when U.S. authorities cultivated mob connections in American ports the mob controlled operations in, to help police those ports from Nazis and Nazi sympathizer “fifth column” sabotage. In June 1971 Lyndon Johnson told one of his former White House staffers, Leo Janos, he believed Kennedy had been killed by a conspiracy that Oswald may or may not been a part of, adding, “We had been operating a damned Murder Inc. in the Caribbean.” Janos wrote about this conversation in 1973 after Johnson’s death. “Note Johnson’s choice of words: ‘We had been operating…’ The ‘We’ has to mean the United States Government, or at least an agency or instrumentality of the government,” Air Force Colonel and former Pentagon, CIA and Joint Chiefs liaison Fletcher Prouty wrote in his own analysis of the assassination. “Further, Johnson underscores that ‘We had been operating’ this murder capability over time. He does not limit its work to a single event, i.e. the Kennedy mur-

der. He remembers back through the years to the close of the WWII, at least, to the uncounted times when enemies of the government had been killed by this ‘Murder Inc.’ quickly, cleanly and with precision ... and without their apprehension and prosecution by anyone.” When Kennedy was elected in 1960, Prouty was an Air Force Colonel assigned to the office of Secretary of Defense (1959–1961) Thomas S. Gates Jr. For six years on Pentagon duty to that point Prouty served as Chief of Special Operations, as he observes, meaning “in support of clandestine operations of the CIA.” Prouty’s entire resume for the period was: 1955-1960, Headquarters, U.S. Air Force; 1960-1962, the Secretary of Defense; 1962-1963, the Office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Second patsy theory While “Murder Inc.” and associates publicly pointed the finger at Lee Harvey Oswald, deep within the halls of government Allen Dulles, who Kennedy fired as CIA director in the wake of the Bay of Pigs, served as counsel to the Warren Commission. There he controlled the flow of information to men in public service who were going to be asked to serve their country by lying to it. So, perhaps most ironically the CIA-controlled back-room rationale for publicly forwarding the Oswald as lone gunman fairy tale to the American public was heading off the potential of a nuclear Third World War due to public outrage that would have been directed at Murder Inc.’s second patsy, Fidel Castro and his Soviet allies. Many researchers contend Castro was distraught at Kennedy’s murder, understanding the president alone had stood in the way of a U.S. military action against his country. And since a U.S. contract on Castro was not Kennedy’s idea, U.S. efforts to kill the Cuban leader were not stymied by Kennedy’s death. “Follow the money,” they sometimes say in criminal investigations. It leads to neither Lee Harvey Oswald’s grave, nor to Fidel Castro’s Cuba.

JFK & history

Malcolm Barr’s journalistic brush with the history of 11-22-63 An encounter with the Kennedy cabinet in Hawaii as JFK assassinated By Roger Bianchini Warren County Report Sometimes you have to go to the story and sometimes the story comes to you. Informed of my plans for a “JFK & History” edition to be published on Nov. 22, 2013, our contributing writer Malcolm Barr reminded me he was an Associated Press correspondent based in Hawaii in November 1963. Here is his report on that day’s AP assignment. “I recall an early morning telephone call tipping me the president had been shot in Dallas and that a GRIDIRON, from 23 of Dallas, Texas, while I played football a half a continent away. That successor, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, had also bucked the American military-corporate apparatus during his presidency, and perhaps fatally, more directly and in more immediate situations than Eisenhower had – at the Bay of Pigs, during the Cuban Missile crisis, in Vietnam … Many years after the fact I heard a European investigative report that quoted Kennedy archives indicating his ambassador to South Vietnam, Henry Cabot Lodge, reporting back to Washington that presidential directives relayed through the embassy in 1963 ordering CIA operatives in country to back off of aggressive covert actions, including assassinations, were simply being ignored in the field. I wondered then if those rogue CIA elements had an inkling those directives would soon change despite Kennedy’s overwhelming popularity as the 1964 election approached? No, probably just a coincidence that Kennedy was soon shot down like a rabid dog on a parade route whose path had been realigned that day to go down Elm Street in front of the Texas School Book Depository … Probably a coincidence too that as pointed out by Air Force Col. Fletcher Prouty, Security Action Memorandum #273, which began the change in Kennedy’s policy toward Vietnam – Kennedy had decreed that “the bulk of U.S. personnel would be out of Vietnam by the end of 1965” – was drafted on Nov 21, 1963, the day before Kennedy was killed. NSM 273 was quickly given to a properly respectful President Lyndon Johnson, who signed it on Nov. 26, 1963. Pondering these things after launching my own college term

plane taking members of his cabinet to a meeting in Tokyo had been ordered to turn around mid-Pacific. My military source said the plane would touch down for refueling at Hickam Air Force base near Pearl Harbor. “I quickly dressed and drove like hell to the AP bureau in downtown Honolulu where my bureau chief, the late Bob Myers, ordered me out to Hickam to meet the plane, a Boeing 707, part of the presidential fleet. There were six members of JFK’s cabinet aboard: Secretary of State Dean Rusk, Treasury Secretary Douglas Dillon, Interior Secretary Stewart Udall, Labor Secretary Willard paper research on the JFK assassination in 1969, I told my mother, “There are circumstances leading

a lot of people to think your old (CIA) bosses were behind it.” “I wouldn’t be surprised, the way they talked about him,” she surprised me with a frank appraisal of her early 1960s superiors. Now 40 years gone, I am the paranoid-tinged conspiracy freak sitting alone in the dark corners of dark bars, reflecting on the familiarity of low times and low lies glowering at me from the “enduring freedom” of a television screen hovering slightly above my still focused eye. And 40 years gone from that long lost childhood football game I find myself choking down one final coincidence – that the U.S. president gesturing at me from that screen explaining the necessity of this country’s invasion and military-industrial occupation of Iraq, one of the world’s two primary oil fields, and the ultimate evil of its oil-rich neighbor Iran, is heir to a family legacy the roots of which run deep into Texas oil, American politics and the directorship of the CIA. – rogerb@warrencountyreport.com

Wirtz, Commerce Secretary Luther Hodges, Agriculture Secretary Orville Freeman, along with presidential Press Secretary Pierre Salinger. “Salinger issued a very brief statement, I think in the air base officers’ club, during refueling of the jet to get it back to Washington. I don’t think he knew much more than we did at that time and 50 years later I don’t even remember what was in the statement. I guess somewhere in AP reports issued that day what he said and what I reported became a very small footnote in the history of all that has been written since. My recollection is I was the only newsman there.” Rusk and Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara had been in Hawaii Nov. 20-21 at a meeting connected with the assassination earlier the same month of South Vietnam President Diem, Barr noted. While Rusk joined the other five cabinet members in Hawaii for the flight to Tokyo that day, McNamara, who Barr came to know and interviewed many times during the lead-up to the Vietnam War, was airborne on another flight headed back to the Pentagon that day. Barr remembers hearing that McNamara, the secretary of defense of a nation whose president had been shot under supposedly unknown circumstances, didn’t find out his boss

In an appendix to his story, Malcolm told me that this past Septem-

ber on a trip west he visited Dallas and the Texas School Book Depository building in Dealey Plaza now converted into a museum of that day’s events. “It was hard to visualize making an accurate shot out of that window on the sixth floor to where the president’s car passed, even if it was only traveling a few miles per hour,” Barr concluded. – rogerb@warrencountyreport.com

Middle school students help St. Judeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s with Cartons of Hope

Left to right: Caroline Macauley, Abby Duck, Abby Buchholz, Sam Buchholz and Melissa Cummins By Carol Ballard When Angela Mohr, teacher at Frederick County Middle School assigned a research project to her seventh grade Gifted Academic students, she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t foresee that Melissa Cummins would use her research to create a fundraising machine to donate money for cancer research. and â&#x20AC;&#x153;In sixth grade I did a science project with embryos and developed an interest in chickens. I showed the difference between store-bought and farm-raised. This year, my parents finally thought I was mature enough to raise chickens,â&#x20AC;? said Melissa. Motivated by classmate, Summer Ostinatoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death from leukemia last December and her dedication to fundraising activities for St. Judeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cancer research, Melissa, and four of her girlfriends; Abby Duck, Caroline Macauley, sisters Abby and Sam Buchholz, along with Melissaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s younger sister Madelyn, cleaned out a barn on her parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; property in Gore and converted it into a chicken coop. They bought 13 chicks in spring

â&#x20AC;&#x153;MAKE YOUR NEXT CUTâ&#x20AC;?

THE RIGHT CUT - Fa m i l y S a l o n -

2013 with the plan to raise them, sell the eggs and donate proceeds to St. Judeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. The brood has grown to 16 chickens and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve named the project Cartons of Hope. The girls, now eighth graders, seated in their school library, excitedly talked about their team project and how they turned their feelings of the loss of their friend into something positive. Like true team players, they finished each others sentences, and interjected information as it occurred to them, but with such thoughtfulness that it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t confusing. Summer was an outstanding math student who participated in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mathathonâ&#x20AC;? fundraisers to donate money to St. Judeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. By being sponsored and answering many questions, she raised money for cancer research. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ironically, she got cancer,â&#x20AC;? Caroline said. They also described her as a friend to everyone, very charismatic, who loved to make little gifts for people. Her passing affected both seventh and eighth grade classes, they said. The girls have sold eggs through

their school, and friends, teachers, and neighbors have been treated to fresh eggs from healthy, well-loved, free-running chickens. They sold them for $3.50 a dozen, they said. They got so fond of the chickens; they gave them names like Fluffy, Gracie and Mrs. Benedict. Melissaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rhode Island Red is called Milly. One time, they opened the barn door and a chicken saw its chance to run wild and escaped. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We saw a blur of white as it went running through the woods. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a lot of fun with these chicks,â&#x20AC;? said Abby B. So far, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve raised $350, and were able to donate $135 to St. Jude, using the rest for the chickensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; upkeep. But now that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting colder, the chickensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; egg-laying has stopped. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They go through feed like crazy, though. The tractor supply store manager where we bought the chickens heard about our charity and is giving us a discount, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still taking donations for feed,â&#x20AC;? Melissa said. If the feed is eaten too fast, she mixes it with table scraps- things like tomatoes (which they love) and weeds. Typically, she gets up at 5:45 a.m. gets dressed, and takes the chickens 2.5 gallons of water every other day. A gallon of feed will last half a week. Since researching the difference between factory-produced versus farm grown eggs, she has become a strong proponent for the latter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s less cholesterol, they have the health-necessary Omega 3 fatty acids and thicker shells. Free-range eggs donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need refrigeration; you can keep eggs for several weeks,â&#x20AC;? she explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And you know theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re being taken care of,â&#x20AC;? said Sam. They were all sympathetic to the way chickens are treated in battery cages in chicken factories. They de-

scribed the tilted cages where the chickens are confined, and the eggs that roll down are mixed with their feces. So, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re determined to go ahead with the project even over the winter. While there are no eggs to sell, they are making and selling t-shirts instead. The shirts come in two styles, plain white and tie dye, with a chicken feet pattern crossing over the front. The girls get together on weekends to dye the shirts. The feet pattern was designed by Abby Duck. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of ironic that my last name is Duck and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re feeding chickens,â&#x20AC;? she said, with a laugh. They were also honored at a school assembly by U.S. Senator Mark Warner, who heard about their endeavor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He sent a letter congratulating us. The school got the original and we got copies,â&#x20AC;? they said. Mohr is understandably proud that the assignment had such a positive impact. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interesting to see a research project to develop into something real, and it will also be interesting to see how it goes further. It will be a Foundation one day,â&#x20AC;? she predicted, to smiles from the girls. In the spring, when the chickens donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to use all their energy to stray warm and the eggs start coming

back, they talked about doing an egg celebration, maybe to coincide with Easter and all of its egg-related activities, and to connect springâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hopeful promise with their Cartons of Hope. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We feel eggs are life and life is eggs,â&#x20AC;? said one of the girls, and they all nodded and smiled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help Summer but we can help people in her situation and we can see a connection between the community and St. Jude,â&#x20AC;? said Caroline. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not in a lab, but we help out anyway,â&#x20AC;? concluded Melissa. The project can use othersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; help as well. They are asking for good-hearted people to help by donating their labor or money to install electricity and/or a heater for the now-unheated barn. They are also searching for a lawyer who will work pro-bono, so they can officially register as a non-profit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This would make it more professional and legitimate. The donations would be tax-deductible. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now classed as a fundraiser, so donations arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2DC;t tax-deductible,â&#x20AC;? Melissa said.

XXXNBSJPTUSBJOTDPN will be able to Wow! your friends at your next party. Since you seem like the type who pays attention, you might recall what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve said in the past about fall color not suddenly showing up in the fall but being there all year. It is just masked by the green chlorophyll the tree produces in the leaves until the shorter days and cooler temperatures of fall signal to the tree to prepare for winter dormancy. The tree then cuts back on the chlorophyll production and reveals the remaining pigments of yellow and gold from carotene and xanthophyll that are produced all year long but hidden by the green chlorophyll. Examples are Eastern Redbud (Cerciscanadensis), Mockernut Hickory (Caryaalbaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;some of these live 500 years, so be sure you like it before you plant this one), Sweet Birch (Betulalenta), and Witch-hazel (Hamamelisvirginiana). Similarly, some trees produce red and

purple pigments called anthocyanins that mask the yellow pigments. Red Maple (Acer rubrum), Flowering Dogwood (Cornusflorida), Blackgum (Nyssa sylvatica), and Northern Red Oaks (Quercusrubra) are some examples. Oak leaves also produce tannins that eventually turn them brown. So there are several genetic factors that control the display of fall colors. Environmental factors like how sunny or warm the fall season affecting sugars in the tree also influence the intensity of the colors. Now that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve sprinkled a little chemistry and botany on youâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really getting into thisâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;remember to check out the other environmental factors that will contribute to the success of your trees, like soil, light, and water to start with. Maybe, Janet, this will get you started though in your quest for dramatic tree color.

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 â&#x20AC;&#x153;All About Trees Classâ&#x20AC;?. Each month Stewart will answer a question from our readers. Please forward it to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stewartâ&#x20AC;? in care of: frwctreestewards@comcast.net and we may publish it in a future issue.

Education

GMU students present climate change survey results Skyline’s advanced environmental science classes hear about local perspectives By Roger Bianchini Warren County Report Students at George Mason University’s Applied Conservation Studies track, one of two semester-long undergraduate programs in the SmithsonianMason School of Conservation Studies Program (S-MSC) here, took advantage of Election Day to conduct a survey of local attitudes toward climate change. Three days later on Nov. 8, those S-MSC students presented a power point of their finding to James Kenney’s Advanced Environmental Science classes of juniors and seniors at Skyline High School. The presentation included introductions of the college students, their backgrounds, majors and areas of specific interest in pursuing their degrees; the methodology used in the survey; and results. Students presented the results of community interviews they conducted as part of the section on climate change science, where they were learning about

the role of community perspectives in implementing effective local strategies to address climate change. The subsequent give and take indicated that as Skyline teacher Kenney observed of his class members, “These are our students who will be the movers on these kinds of issues in the future.” In response to questions about attitudes versus the science on climate change, the college students noted that the science connecting human activity, particularly the emission of carbons into the atmosphere is unmistakable – that the “dramatic pace” of atmospheric changes and consequences over the past 200 years since the industrial revolution are something science can verify the planet has not experienced in 650,000 years. As the presentation ended, a number of Skyline students mingled with the S-MSC sophomores and juniors for additional discussion – enabling this photo op.

Salvation Army kicks off the holiday season

By Ken Thurman Warren County Report The Front Royal arm of the Salvation Army kicked off its Red Kettle fund raising campaign November 14th at the Royal Plaza K-Mart. Tony Tringle acted as master of ceremonies introducing Mayor Tim Darr. The mayor kicked off the festivities and made the first donation, followed by Tony, who made a donation on behalf of the Jeane Dixon Foundation. Reverend Al Woods, Chairman of the Salvation Army Advisory Committee, provided the invocation. Plus, the Randolph Macon Academy (RMA) choral group provided multiple Christmas carols which lead to audience participation. Lt’s Pradeep and Pricilla Remaji provided a glimpse of the upcoming efforts including the familiar bell ringers and their red kettles which will be located at the K-Mart

Engle’s Angle: Not Today! by Kevin S. Engle

“Do you need help with something?” It’s always nice when someone wants to help you, but this guy knew I didn’t need help. He knew exactly why I was there and exactly what I was doing. “No thanks,” I said as I continued pressing buttons on the remote. That is, not unless he knew what channel CNBC was on. “Just waiting for your car?” Who says there are no stupid questions? Of course I’m waiting for my car. Do people wait in these little rooms at car dealerships, the ones with the uncomfortable chairs and 25

different magazines scattered about, for some other reason? “Yup.” I wasn’t trying to be rude, but I didn’t want to talk to this guy. I knew where this was going. Someplace I didn’t want to go. This was just his way of starting the conversation. The one I didn’t want to have. What he was really asking, without saying the words, was “how would you like to buy a new car today?” “What do you drive?” Here we go. I could feel the knot tighten in the back of my neck. I clenched my jaw. “A Ford Escape.” I should’ve lied. Told him my license was suspended.

“Do you like it?” This is exactly why I despise car dealerships. The second you get there, you’re in their cross hairs. You’re a piece of meat. An injured gazelle on the African savannah, being circled by a pride of hungry lions. It’s only a matter of time before they pounce. “I do.” We made eye contact for the first time. He knew I didn’t want to have this conversation, but he kept going anyway. “What year is it?” “I’m here for a state inspection man, not to buy a new car. Will you leave me alone?” That’s what I wanted to say. ‘2006’ is what I did say. Before he could ask me his next question, ‘how many miles did I have on it?’, and then the inevitable ‘don’t you think it’s time for a new one?’, the service manager miraculously ap-

Engle’s Angle peared from around the corner and said those magic words. “Your car is ready Mr. Engle.” “Praise Jesus!” I cried out as I knelt down and kissed the dirty floor. And just like that, the conversation was over. He walked away, defeated, but no doubt in search of his next target. I quickly put down the remote and followed the service manager to his desk. I’d survived. All I had to do now was pay the bill and get out. Who teaches car salesman to be like this? Do they learn this stuff their first day on the job? I realize they’re trying to earn a living, but come on! Can you imagine walking on to the lot and no one approaching you? That’d be great. I’d love it. The next time I am shopping for a new car, in about fifteen or twenty years, I’m going to wear a big sign that says “Just looking. Don’t bother me.” I bet they will anyway. The author’s wife thinks he needs a new car. Even she’s against me. – kevinengle456@comcast.net

News briefs VA Offers Dental Insurance Program. VA is partnering with Delta Dental and MetLife to allow eligible Veterans, and their family members receiving care under the Civilian Health and Medical Program (CHAMPVA), to purchase affordable dental insurance beginning Nov. 15, VA officials announced today.   “VA continues to explore innovative ways to help Veterans get access to the care and services they have earned and deserve,” said Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric K. Shinseki. “This new dental program is another example of VA creating partnerships with the private sector to deliver a range of high-quality care at an affordable cost, for our Nation’s Veterans.” More than 8 million Veterans who are enrolled in VA health care can choose to purchase one of the offered dental plans.  This three-year pilot has been designed for Veterans with no dental coverage, or those eligible for VA dental care who would like to purchase additional coverage.  Participation will not affect entitlement to VA dental services and treatment. There are no eligibility limitations based on serviceconnected disability rating or enrollment priority assignment.  People interested in participating may complete an application online through either Delta Dental, www. deltadentalvadip.org, or MetLife, www. metlife.com/vadip beginning Nov. 15.  Coverage for this new dental insurance will begin Jan. 1, 2014, and will be available throughout the United States and its territories.  Also eligible for the new benefits are nearly 400,000 spouses and dependent children who are reimbursed for most medical expenses under VA’s CHAMPVA program.  Generally, CHAMPVA participants are spouses, survivors or dependent children of Veterans officially rated as “permanently and totally” disabled by a service-connected condition. Dental services under the new program vary by plan and include diagnostic, preventive, surgical, emergency and endodontic/restorative treatment.  Enrollment in the VA Dental Insurance Plan (VADIP) is voluntary.  Participants are responsible for all premiums, which range from $8.65 to $52.90 per month for individual plans.  Copayments and other charges may apply. Historically VA’s free dental services have gone to Veterans with dental problems connected to a medical condition that’s officially certified as “service connected.”  Free dental services will continue for those Veterans.  For more information on VADIP, visit www.va.gov/healthbenefits/vadip, or contact Delta Dental at 1-855-370-3303 or MetLife at 1-888-310-1681. Veterans who are not enrolled in the VA health care system can apply at any time by visiting www. va.gov/healthbenefits/enroll, calling 1-877222-VETS (8387) or visiting their local VA health care facility.

Community Diversions

Veterans Day 2013 at the Warren County Courthouse

Chaplain Richard Kirkland presents yellow roses with yellow ribbons to five women called Gold Star Mothers, whose sons died in combat.  Helen Seekford is at left, with Irene Jenkins on the right. The flowers were given to thank them and their sons for the sacrifices they made for our country. By Carol Ballard Veterans Day 2013 at the Warren County Courthouse was another reminder of all the people who have fought, died and survived the many wars our country has been involved in. The courthouse lawn and surrounding blocks were crowded with community members gathered to honor them. Warren County is named after Dr. Joseph Warren (1741-1775), an American Revolutionary War officer, who sent Paul Revere on his famous midnight ride; the Civil War is a notso-dim memory for many local families whose ancestors who fought and died right here in this and the surrounding counties. Many of the recent far-off wars had survivors and heroes present on Monday, Nov. 11. Several fought in a conflict and then went back again. The marching bands of Warren County High School, Skyline High School and R-MA played stirring patriotic music, speeches were given and prayers were offered for those

who died in battle. Many of those present had tears in their eyes. Chaplain Richard Kirkland opened the ceremony with a prayer after Randolph Macon Academy’s Color Guard formally marched from the street to a position behind the speakers. Alexandra Taylor led the “Cats’ Chorus” children’s choir from Front Royal’s E. Wilson Morrison Elementary School in a song honoring the veterans gift of service. Front Royal Mayor Timothy Darr then thanked everyone in attendance, and singled out the Giles B. Cook American Legion Post 53 especially, for hosting the event at the town courthouse. He said that everyone should take the time to tell our veterans how much they mean to us as individuals and to our freedom, not only on Veterans Day, but every day or whenever the opportunity arises. “You’re all heroes,” he said to them. Post 53 Commander Larry Funk praised the members of the Ameri-

Pfc. Larry Davis--stationed in Germany during Vietnam war can Legion who helped make Monday’s event possible. He also had some serious words for our country’s politicians. He challenged them to live by their words. If they are going to cite our nation’s incalculable debt to heroes and their tremendous courage, then they need to live by those words, he charged. Many veterans are now returning home wounded, without jobs, disoriented and needing far more than just praise. Toward the end of the ceremony, Funk honored the women in the audience whose sons died in battle. Chaplain Kirkland presented yellow roses tied with yellow ribbons to the women who are called “gold star mothers”. The national organization called American Gold Star Mothers, Inc. was established in 1928 by twentyfive mothers whose children had died

Randolph Macon Academy and Warren High School Marching Bands

A few of the local veterans attending the Nov. 11 Veterans Day ceremony at the Warren County Courthouse were: Mike McDermott, U.S. Navy; Stewart Kuser, U.S. Navy; Ralph Hauser, U.S. Marine Corps in battle. Maj. Gen. Maurice H. “Maury” Forsyth, president of Randolph-Macon Academy, talked about the call to service. He quoted Eleanor Roosevelt and gave an example from the movie “Saving Private Ryan”, both having to do with deserving the sacrifice that soldiers have made for those still living. “Somewhere out there, a person died for me today….If there be war, I must ask myself, ‘Am I worth dying for?’” asked Eleanor Roosevelt. He went to say that most people remember the beginning of the movie “Saving Private Ryan” but he was especially moved by the ending. As mortally wounded Captain John Miller was dying, he said to Private Ryan, “Earn this. Earn it.” At the

end of the movie, years after the war ended, Ryan is seen in the cemetery, and goes to the cross at the grave of the Captain. He said, “My Family is with me. Every day I think about what you said. I tried to live my life the best that I could. I hope I’ve earned it.” To Forsyth, Veterans Day is a reminder to ask himself if he is worthy. He also asked what it is that makes defenders march toward the sound of guns, and answered that it is love of country and freedom. “I am privileged to wear the cloth of my country. God bless all who serve this great country of ours,” he concluded. The program ended with a moment of silence and a prayer by Chaplain Kirkland.

Bob Sites, U.S. Navy; Dennis Hinline, U.S. Marine Corps; Bob Conway, U.S. Navy; Doug Ramos, U.S. Navy; Jim Heflin, U.S.Air Force--joking with each other about which one of them was actually a veteran of World War I
