Native American Boarding Schools Left Mark for Life By Jim Kent
Editor’s Note: This article was refused for publication at the Rapid City Journal, where the author’s columns usually appear. Reasons cited included that the events happened decades ago. When we heard of this, 360 View offered to gladly print the article in it’s entirety. For most people, memories of their first days of school are often blurred images kept alive by stories passed on over the years at family gatherings.
The methods used to achieve that result were quite a bit removed from the primary definition of the word: to take in, incorporate as one’s own; absorb. Unless the parallel is: to absorb; as to soak up blood from a large, open wound. And that’s what Native American children received: wounds upon
But for tens of thousands of Native Americans, memories of their early school days are nightmares they’ve relived throughout their lives.
plex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder”. The condition comes as a result of suffering abuse for months, or years, and particularly impacts children whose personalities are still forming during this abuse. It’s no surprise the boarding school system would follow such a path, having been created by U.S. Army Captain Richard Pratt – a man who supported Gen. Philip Sheridan’s comment that the only good Indian is a dead Indian. Pratt added a slight caveat by noting “all the Indian there is in the race should be dead. Kill the Indian in him, and save the man.”

Folks, The Romney-Ryan tour bus stopped in Tappahannock today and parked in the Walmart parking lot for about 30 minutes today. It did not have the candidates on board. The support staff elected to stop here just for a moment while heading on to Gloucester. They handed out yard signs, bumper stickers and window plaqards to a multitude of folks that were elated to see the bus. Here is a picture of the bus that I took with my cell phone. Butch Buchanan

The other day we received a five page letter explaining that our Anthem medicare advantage plan has been eliminated. The letter was “lawyerly” written using legalize that you cannot understand, but basically stated that the plan I liked has been killed. There are millions that are covered by this plan, and there are millions that will be as confused as I was. The insurance company was not to blame for the policy cancellation. Do you remember when Nancy Pelosi said, “We have to pass the bill to find out what is in it”? before cramming it down our throats!
acare has turned into a war on every American that cherishes freedom and liberty. Our liberty and freedom are at stake. Government take over of the nations health care industry will be one more nail in the coffin. Other devestating revelations about Obamacare are just the beginning to come out. When will the other taxes, fees, regulations and death panels kick in? This one bill was designed to drive the USA to a single payer socialist health care system. These systems have failed in every country in which they have been tried. Socialism must be defeated, and free markets must be restored. Your vote on November 6th could pave the way to the repeal of Obamacare and the restoration of some of your Liberty.
This is an example of the new transparency of government delivered by Democrats! President Obama said , “If you like your present health care plan, you can keep it.” Today Beverley Walker for me that statement is just another Mechanicsville VA 23116 lie told by the President. ObamI am deeply disturbed and outraged by the recent coordinated attacks against our nation by Islamic radicals in Egypt and Libya that have resulted in the invasion of U.S. soil, the desecration of U.S. property including our flag, and the murder of U.S. citizens. In light of this attack on our nation -- and the fact that my tax dollars are funding extremist leadership in these nations -- I am calling on Congress and the President to immediately
CEASE AND DESIST any and all U.S. funding currently going to Egypt and Libya. I also support extending this CEASE AND DESIST funding policy to any nation whose government or people openly attack or undermine these United States of America. Contact your reps today and demand the same. WE ARE BROKE!
No one has a greater claim to the democratic process than the men and women protecting it. As members of the military, they stand guard over our most basic rights--without any guarantee that they’ll get to exercise theirs. That’s the surprising conclusion of a new report by the Military Voter Protection Project (MVP), which rocked the presidential race yesterday with news that absentee military voting is down as much as 70% from 2008 in crucial states like Ohio, Virginia, and Florida. These are the lowest numbers we’ve seen in the last decade.
troops should be some of the most motivated voters in the country. After all, no one has borne the brunt of this administration’s radical agenda like the U.S. military. Its service members have witnessed the slashing of their health care, the integration of open homosexuality, the slow death of religious liberty, violations of the federal marriage law, the suppression of early voting and now the threat of a half-trillion dollar military cutback. So are America’s troops suddenly disinterested in the race for their next commander-in-chief--or is something fishy?
To most people, the decline raises plenty of questions. Given all that’s happened in the last four years, our

Faith Hedgepeth was getting her life together; her death is a mystery By Mandy Locke - email@example.com
Published in: Local/State http://www.newsobserver.com/2012/10/06/v-print/2395429/in-chapel-hill-a-bright-light.html
A reward of nearly $30,000 is offered for information leading to an arrest in the case. Anyone with information that might help is asked to call Chapel Hill police at 919-6146363 or Crime Stoppers at 919-942-7515. CHAPEL HILL Faith Hedgepeth spent much of her last night like a typical college student, cramming at the library before blowing off steam with friends at a Chapel Hill dance club. The path that led the 19-year-old UNC-Chapel Hill student to the Triangle – and to her death – was anything but ordinary. H e d g e p e t h ’s roommate found her cold and unresponsive on Sept. 7 in the bedroom of the apartment they shared near Durham. In the month since, Chapel Hill police have been close-lipped about their investigation, saying only that they don’t believe her death was random. As the days pass with no arrest and limited information, her family grows weary, looking for clues among the clusters of friends she had knitted together over the past two years in Chapel Hill and Durham. Her father, Roland Hedgepeth, ticks through every conversation and visit with his daughter from the past two years, looking for anything that could explain how his daughter met such a violent end. Some emergency radio communication between responders referred to blood at the scene. Family members said the carpet and much of the walls had been stripped by police and sent to labs for testing. “From day one, I’ve been worried about Faith there,” Roland Hedgepeth said. “I’m looking at and questioning every scenario.” The possibilities are more numerous than Hedgepeth would like. Though Hedgepeth’s early years had been insulated from much of the world, her life in Chapel Hill was not. Hedgepeth’s entire world before college was a small Native American tribe, Haliwa-Saponi, that had settled a crossroads community along the Warren and Halifax County line northeast of Raleigh. Her freshman year, she lived in a dorm at UNC filled with students from around the globe. Back home, Hedgepeth knew practically every one of the 2,500 tribe members living locally by name, but in the Triangle, dozens of strangers crossed her path each day, including scores of travelers passing through Interstate 40 and stopping to eat at the Red Robin restaurant where she worked. Crime was minimal in Hollister, and her tribe stressed respect for women and children, yet Hedgepeth helped her friend and roommate navigate an abusive relationship earlier this year. Now, Hedgepeth’s family works through possible explanations: Did her roommate’s violent relationship somehow make her a target? Did someone from the dance club follow her home? Did someone she met at work become fixated with her? “She’s so beautiful and kind,” Roland Hedgepeth said. “People are drawn to her.” Struggling at UNC Hedgepeth shone bright in a community that often felt dim, especially to young people. Hollister is tiny, offering a mere blinking light for traffic bound for Rocky Mount or the Virginia border. There’s no industry. A bustling Dollar General offers practically the only commerce. The area offers scant entertainment, save for monthly powwows at the Haliwa-Saponi Tribal Center. The nearest Walmart is a 30-minute trek. The limitations sometimes felt like choke-holds to the young, said Alfred Richardson, tribal administrator. For Hedgepeth, though, it became a call to action. Her community desperately needed doctors. The nearest emergency department is about 25 miles away in Rocky Mount. In high school, Hedgepeth excelled in the sciences and loved children, so she headed to UNC-Chapel Hill in 2010 bent on being a pediatrician for her community, her family said. She was determined to complete a course her father had to abandon decades before; he’d enrolled at UNC-CH after high school but had to drop out when his wife became pregnant with their first child. “She was determined to fulfill Dad’s mission,” said Rolanda, Faith’s older sister, who helped rear her. Hedgepeth’s path to college was paved by the Gates Millennium scholarship. Designed for advanced minority students who couldn’t otherwise afford college, the scholarship covered the costs unmet by grants, the family’s ability to pay and other scholarships. Money was tight for Hedgepeth’s family; her mother worked at Lowe’s Home Improvement and her father worked in the furniture business. Despite the scholarship, Hedgepeth took on part-time jobs to buy groceries, clothes and gas. Roland Hedgepeth said his daughter never complained about having to pitch in, but he ached over his own memories from that freshman year at UNC.
“I didn’t have any money in college. My family was very poor, and all my friends had money,” he said. “I felt very out of place.” Roland Hedgepeth watched his daughter battle another familiar struggle: Academically, he fell behind his peers. Biology dealt a real challenge to Faith, and as she juggled a full load the first semester of her sophomore year, she felt overwhelmed. She tried to drop a few classes, but the change didn’t register, her father said. When the end of the semester arrived, she received failing grades for the classes she thought she had dropped. She lost her financial aid; she had to take the spring 2011 semester off and appeal her grades. “Faith was so ashamed,” Roland Hedgepeth remembered. “She was afraid to tell anyone, feeling like she’d let them down.” She decided to stay in Chapel Hill instead of returning to Hollister. She had secured a waitressing job at Red Robin, a burger restaurant along U.S. 15-501 in Durham. She lived off campus and worked as many shifts as she could. There she befriended a web of other young people. Some were recent college graduates deflated by a tough job market. Others studied at N.C. Central University. Manager Brandon Clearwood said everyone instantly adored Hedgepeth. “She had a way of making everyone comfortable, just had this contagious energy,” he said. “She never acted better than her job or better than anyone.” A father’s regrets Hedgepeth fought her way back into UNCChapel Hill this past summer. She took summer classes to try to catch up with her classmates. She talked of changing her major to education and becoming an elementary school teacher. “We were so proud of her,” Rolanda Hedgepeth said. “She really pushed through that time.” Over the summer, she hung out with fellow UNC student and prior roommate, Karena Rosario. Rosario, a UNC student from New Jersey, had started dating a guy she met in her apartment complex, Hawthorne at the View. By July, their relationship soured. According to court records, Rosario’s boyfriend, Takoy Jones, 21, kicked in Rosario’s bedroom door July 5, fought with her and took her phone to prevent her from calling police. In court records, Rosario describes Jones throwing her down and kicking down the doors to the bathroom and closet. Rosario changed the locks on the apartment, but several days later, Jones had returned, breaking into the apartment, according to court records and a police report. Jones was not charged. The next day, Hedgepeth drove Rosario to the Durham County Courthouse to get a restraining order against Jones. A judge ordered him to stay away from Rosario, the apartment and her school for a year. A month after the episode, Hedgepeth moved in with Rosario, family members said, sharing the apartment’s single bedroom while she waited for her financial aid money to arrive so she could rent an apartment of her own. Roland Hedgepeth wishes he’d known his daughter was stepping into a possibly dangerous situation when she moved in with Rosario. He kicks himself for not asking more questions about the neighborhood and her living arrangement. When Hedgepeth visited the apartment after his daughter’s death to collect her things, he could still see evidence of Jones and Rosario’s tumultuous relationship. The bedroom door was loose from its frame and unable to lock. The bathroom and closet doors were entirely off their hinges. After Hedgepeth’s death, as reporters and police flocked to the apartment complex, Jones appeared on at least one local newscast. He identified himself as a concerned friend and former roommate who lived at the apartment complex. He said whoever did this to Hedgepeth needed to burn. When reached this week and asked whether police had questioned him in connection with the case, Jones hung up. An attorney representing him on an outstanding drug possession charge couldn’t be reached for comment. Rosario returned to New Jersey after Hedgepeth’s death. She didn’t return messages left for her. A single clue gives police reason to believe Hedgepeth’s death wasn’t a random act of violence: There was no sign of forced entry. Rosario had stayed at a friend’s house the night of the killing, Roland Hedgepeth said. Without answers, Hedgepeth said he feels stuck. “It feels like the rest of the world is moving past me,” he said. “Each day, it feels as if she’s just died all over again.” News researchers David Raynor and Brooke Cain contributed to this report.

The Parent’s Corner Do you ever ponder and turn the clock ahead 1 year, 5 years, 10 years, or more, wondering how your kids will turn out? Do you consider that your parenting today is shaping the most precious of God’s gifts? Parenting can be a little scary sometimes, can’t it? We wonder if he or she will be making the decisions that lead to peace and joy, or those which bring heartache and pain. 2 Corinthians 9:6 Remember this—a farmer who plants only a few seeds will get a small crop. But the one who plants generously will get a generous crop. We have been discussing the attributes of a Christ-centered home. We have discussed that joy, orderliness, grace, service and spiritual disciplines are all components and reflect the love of Christ in a family. Today’s article is our last in this series “How do you create a Christ-centered home?” from Focus on the Family. The last attribute we will discuss is “God’s Pur-
poses”. “A Christian home is a place where the family’s goals are founded upon His values and the vision for the future is consistent with His plan.” Translated into “everyday language”, this means that we do things God’s way and not our way, and we raise children to do the same. Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. The place to discover God’s values and vision is in His Word. 2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.

SIZE, COLOR, VARIETIES – IT’S ALL GOOD WITH VIRGINA PUMPKINS THIS YEAR According to the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS), the state’s 2012 pumpkin crop looks very good. “The traditional orange jack-o-lantern pumpkins are the biggest I’ve ever seen,” said Kevin Semones, with the Virginia Pumpkin Growers Association, “and we’ve had great sales of specialty pumpkins.” Most of the wholesale pumpkins are gone now from southwest Virginia, the center of the state’s commercial pumpkin industry. The good news is, they are currently arriving at retail outlets throughout the state and the region, or consumers can find them at scores of pick-your-own farms. “Virginia’s wholesale crop on average was very good this year,” said Semones, “although there were some pockets in the state where drought took its toll.” He says Virginia generally fared much better than many surrounding states or in the Midwest where pumpkins are in short supply. Virginia has approximately 3,000 acres total of pumpkins, gourds, squash and other Halloween-related items. With about 1,760 pumpkins per acre for the 10-inch diameter size and up, the state
produces around 5.3 million of the larger pumpkins for market each year, plus thousands of pounds more of smaller pumpkins and gourds. Patsy Kline, Gladiator, Magic Lantern and Aladdin are the most popular varieties of the traditional orange pumpkins. Popular specialty pumpkins include colors such as white, green, a light orange almost like a creamsicle and even pale pink. Warty pumpkins, striped ones and bi-colors are also selling well. Apple gourds, swan gourds, mini pumpkins and mini gourds are very popular, too. Names of specialty pumpkins can be descriptive, like the peanut pumpkin that looks as though someone pressed in-shell peanuts into the pumpkin’s skin. Others are much more fanciful: Cinderella, Turk’s Turban, Lunch Lady, Bunch of Warts, Porcelain Doll or Long Island Cheese. The smaller pie pumpkins remain popular for school tours and other groups.
Pumpkins are a growing trend among Virginia farmers as more growers begin to enter the direct sales market and to get involved with festivals. They sell directly to the public on the farm, at farmers’ markets and to restaurants. “This is popular with both farmers and the public,” said Matt Lohr, VDACS’ Commissioner. “Growers love it because they are selling at retail instead of wholesale and get to keep more of their production dollars, and consumers enjoy the interaction with the farmers.” Farmers who grow corn, wheat, soybeans or other major crops often plant a few acres of pumpkins to diversify their operations and generate extra income. At these farms, people may come to pick their own pumpkins, but they go away with much more, the experience of a day on the farm. They can navigate the corn maze, drive the pedal cars through
the fields, lob small fruit through the pumpkin cannon, pet the animals, roast hot dogs, enjoy a hay ride, shell their own popcorn or mine gems, to name just a few features of pick-your-own pumpkin farms. Consumers looking for pick-your-own farms should go to VirginiaGrown.com and search by location – county or zip code. They can also go the website of the Virginia Pumpkin Growers Association, www.pumpkinva.org/. With one click on the pumpkin button on the VDACS’ homepage, www.vdacs.virginia.gov, they will find farms, festivals, recipes and other pumpkin-related information. When buying pumpkins, consumers should look for good color, a nice handle on the top (the stem) and no soft spots. For those who don’t carve their pumpkins at Halloween, the pumpkins should last through Thanksgiving as a fall decoration. ### Elaine Lidholm Director of Communications Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services

AES Fourth Graders Become Map Makers Story and Photograph By: Ashley Sears Mrs. Sears and Mrs. Oldershaw’s fourth grade class created dough maps of Virginia. The students had to demonstrate their knowledge of Virginia’s regions and what each region looks like. They created flat lands, rolling hills, mountains, and plateaus. Once the maps were created, the students painted the regions to match their map keys. This hands-on activity helped Virginia’s regions come to life for the students.

History Comes to Life During Historic Ghost Walk, Oct. 12-13 in Elizabeth City, N.C. Elizabeth City , NC – Real-life accounts of the people who lived through an Antebellum period in Elizabeth City history known as “the terrible time” will be the focus of the 16th Annual Historic Ghost Walk, Oct. 12-13 in Elizabeth City, N.C.
Part history lesson, home tour and lively community theatre, Ghost Walk is presented by the Elizabeth City Historic Neighborhood Association and performed by local actors. There are eight sites featured in this year’s tour. Among the highlights will be:
Marking the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Elizabeth City (Feb. 10, 1862), this year’s event will transport visitors to scenes surrounding a pivotal North Carolina Civil War engagement during which Confederate Commodore William F. Lynch’s “Mosquito Fleet” fell to Union Commander Stephen C. Rowan. Rowan’s troops occupied Elizabeth City, and for the remainder of the war, North Carolina’s coastal rivers remained in Union hands.
* The Bland House (501 W. Main Street), where Ghost Walk patrons will hear from Union Gen. Edward Wild, whose troops occupied Elizabeth City for seven days—a period that was recorded as “the worst week in Elizabeth City history.” In fact, Wild was referred to as the “devil himself” by those who lived to tell it.
“We will convey the Battle of Elizabeth City from different people’s views,” said Marjorie Berry, a local historian and scriptwriter for Ghost Walk. “Each character represents a piece of a puzzle that, when complete, paints a picture of what life was like at that time.”
* The Foreman House B&B (311 W. Church Street), featuring George Decatur Pool, a prominent local planter, who will detail what life was really like during the federal occupation.

FIRST HORSE IN 2012 TESTS POSITIVE FOR WEST NILE VIRUS ~ Horse had not been vaccinated for disease ~
The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS) today announced 2012’s first positive case of West Nile Virus (WNV) in a horse. The horse, a nine-year-old Morgan gelding, was from Loudoun County. It had not been vaccinated for WNV for at least three years. The onset of symptoms was September 11. The horse was euthanized and necropsied at VDACS’s animal health laboratory in Warrenton on September 13.

Prevention methods besides vaccination include destroying standing water breeding sites for mosquitoes, use of insect repellents and removing animals from mosquito-infested areas during peak biting times, usually dusk to dawn.
and humans to mosquito-borne diseases.
Currently, no drugs exist to treat WNV specifically in horses or humans. The mortality rate in equines is about 30 percent. Treatment for an infected horse consists of supportive therapy to prevent the animal from injuring itself throughout the two to three weeks of the Mosquitoes can transmit the disease. A veterinarian can previrus from bird to bird. Occasion- scribe treatment tailored to the parally a mosquito that has bitten an ticular case. Dr. Joe Garvin, head of VDACS’ infected bird will then bite a human, Office of Laboratory Services, urges horse owners to check with their veterinarians about vaccinating their animals for WNV. “WNV is a mosquito-borne disease,” he said, “and we generally start seeing our first cases in August and September. The disease is preventable by vaccination, as is Eastern Equine Encephalitis, so many veterinarians recommend vaccination at least yearly, and in mosquito-prone areas, every six months.” He adds that mosquito season in Virginia can run through November. The WNV vaccine for equines initially requires two doses administered three to six weeks apart. The vaccine takes four to six weeks from the second dose for optimal effectiveness. Horse owners should

Animal owners should consult their veterinarians if an animal exhibits any neurological symptoms such as a stumbling gait, going down, facial paralysis, drooping or disinterest in their surroundings.
Currently, there are live-animal tests for WNV in horses and chickens, but none for other animals, although testing can be done on any dead animal. Animal owners should consult their veterinarians or the nearest VDACS Regional Animal Health Laboratory for advice or information should an animal exhibit symptoms of WNV. The location and phone number of each lab is available at vdacs.virginia.gov/ about/directory-ais.shtml.

STATE ANNOUNCES NEARLY $500,000 IN SPECIALTY CROP GRANTS FOR VIRGINIA ~ Benefitting crops include tomatoes, strawberries, wine grapes, pumpkins, gourds and more ~
The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS) has announced funding for 22 agriculturerelated projects that will promote and enhance the competitiveness of Virginia’s specialty crops. The projects resulted from the competitive grant process established by VDACS for USDA Agricultural Marketing Service Specialty Crop Block Grant funds. Crops such as wine grapes, pumpkins, vegetables, Christmas trees, strawberries, honey bees, ornamental gourds and Virginia grown plants that can improve water quality in the Chesapeake Bay all strive to benefit from these grant awards, and in addition, farmers will learn new methods of growing, protecting, certifying and marketing specialty crops. Grants ranged from $5,000 to $30,000 per organization. “These grants represent nearly a half-million dollar investment in Virginia’s economy that will boost economic development and create agribusiness jobs in the state,” said Matthew J. Lohr, VDACS Commissioner. “Each year I am amazed at the innovative projects that receive grants, and this year’s grant recipients have been especially creative in the ways they will enhance production, set up distribution systems and train our state’s farmers to increase the competitiveness of specialty crops in Virginia. I congratulate these individuals, educational institutions and organizations for pursuing concepts that will help growers add value and enhance marketing opportunities across Virginia.” The Specialty Crops Competitiveness Act of 2004 authorized the USDA to provide funds to the states to promote specialty crops including fruits, vegetables, tree nuts, dried fruits and nursery crops. When considering grants
for the USDA Specialty Crop Program, VDACS gave priority to projects that included the following activities: assisting farmers in transitioning into specialty, high-value agricultural initiatives that address the eligible specialty crops; increasing net farm income through high-value or value-added enterprises; finding new ways to market or to add value to specialty agricultural products; and developing pilot and demonstration programs in specialty agriculture that have the potential for transferability within rural Virginia. VDACS is awarding grants totaling $495,635.04 for the following projects, which are listed in no particular order: · Optimal Nitrogen Fertilizer Management for Pumpkin Production in Virginia, Mark Reiter, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech), Blacksburg · Transitioning Small, Medium and Large Scale Specialty Crop Farmers from USDA GAP Certification to the Harmonized Audit – Kathlyn Terry, Appalachian Sustainable Development, Abingdon · Development of a Value-Adding and Agricultural Processing Facility in SW Virginia, Michael Burton, Sustain Floyd, Floyd · Virginia Wineries Association Cooperative: Virginia Wine Online, Laurie Aldrich, Virginia Wineries Association, Richmond · Benefits and Potential Drawbacks

NATIONAL THANKSGIVING TURKEY CANDIDATES SLATED FOR PRESIDENTIAL PARDON HOLD PRESS CONFERENCE
On October 2 at 11:30 a.m., Steve Willardsen, President of Cargil Value Added Meats; Hobey Bauhan, President of the Virginia Poultry Federation; and Matt Lohr, Commissioner of the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS), will held a media availability at an exhibit to the side of Meadow Pavilion at the State Fair of Virginia. Present with them will be two turkeys from a small flock being raised as potential candidates for the National Thanksgiving Turkey.
If events unfold as in previous years, a turkey will be pardoned by President Barack Obama prior to Thanksgiving. This year’s turkey will come from a flock hatched in Rockingham County, Virginia, on July 13, 2012. The pardoned turkey then usually goes to George Washington’s Mount Vernon estate to live out the rest of his life. All turkeys from the flock of 40 were originally considered candidates for the official National Thanksgiving
Turkey, but some, such as these two, Elaine Lidholm will serve as spokesturkeys instead. Director of Communications Because they cannot return to their Virginia Department of Agriculture flock for biosecurity reasons, after their appearance at the State Fair, they will go to a suitable home, such as a petting zoo. Willardsen, Bauhan, Lohr and the two turkeys will be available for interviews and photo opps.
