VIEWS Change can be a good thing THE FINAL SAY

Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes David Bowie

Jeff Say

Change can be scary. I’m sure when many of you grabbed the paper this morning, you were a little confused by the size. Don’t be scared, it’s good news we’re growing. Literally. After the first of the year, we started discussing how we can continue to serve Culpeper and the surrounding communities and one of those ways is to expand the size of the paper. When many things in our world are shrinking - phones, cars, my checkbook when my kids want new toys - we wanted to visually show that we’re expanding. In the three years I’ve worked here at the Culpeper Times, there’s been

many Wednesdays when I’ve had to cut my articles and shrink some wonderful photos by our photographer Ian Chini. Those are always hard decisions, so by moving to a taller tab style newspaper, we’ll be able to bring you more information, bigger photos and more exposure for our advertisers. The difference might not seem big, we’re moving from a 13.75-inch tall tab to a 15-inch tall tab, but it also brings us closer to size to our sister paper, Inside Nova. Rappahannock Media, LLC., purchased Inside Nova earlier in January and we’ve been working to expand our reach to maximize the potential of all of our publications. By offering the same size of paper in our markets, we’ll be able to more easily cross sell advertisers to reach Northern Virginia and for Northern Virginia to reach us. Don’t panic, that doesn’t mean we will stop offering local content. To the contrary, this week you’ll see some familiar faces in our publication.

One comment I hear quite often from the community is “I see your byline a lot.” It’s often meant as a compliment, but I realize that too much of one style of writing can be tedious. So with that in mind, I’d like to welcome Zann Nelson to the Culpeper Times family. I’ve worked with Zann for more than 10 years, when she joined the Culpeper Star-Exponent as a history columnist and I was the sports editor. I’ve collaborated with her on several projects, including the award-winning Pete Hill series. She’s a wealth of information and seemingly knows everyone. When we found out she was ending her column, I immediately connected with her to bring her into the folder here as our official historian. I can’t wait for her to share her amazing stories, which she begins in earnest on page 9 of this week’s issue. She too is excited to bring her expertise to our pages.

“It may surprise many of the readers that after 12 years and more than 600 columns there remains an untold wealth of yet to be shared stories of Culpeper County’s vast history,” Nelson said. “I love the idea of writing for a weekly newspaper that embraces the community it serves with stories that cannot be found elsewhere.” We’ve changed our fonts and updated our banners - thanks to our talented designer Jay Ford - to better brand ourselves and give the paper a fresh, clean, modern look. You’ll also notice that Martin’s Grocery Store now features a backpage ad (in addition to their top strip ad), that will be running weekly and we appreciate their commitment to our community as well. While those changes are evident, we want to stress that we will continue to provide the same hyper local community coverage and advertising that we always have. Some things never change.

Community trails of Culpeper County

One of three top priorities that emerged from the Culpeper County Parks and Recreation Analysis prepared by PRO’S Consulting, Inc. in September 2017 was a need for multiuse trails in the county. Out of 18 recreation facilities listed in the survey conducted by PRO’S Consulting, respondents rated trails as high as number three towards investment for facilities. Surveyed residents also raised awareness that trail connectivity was extremely important. That is, trails when built should lead or connect to another important facility in the county. For example, a trail could lead from

Trails with connectivity give residents a destination to travel, and most important a reason to use a trail. As community development continues, so will population need’s. A well-designed trail plan can make our community more livable, increase property value, improve the economy

through tourism, reduce traffic and lower emissions, preserve open space, and provide opportunities for physical activities that will better mental health and fitness. Taking all the above into consideration, the Culpeper County Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee has formed a subcommittee to spearhead groundwork to formulate a county wide multi-use

trail system plan. The sub-committee is reaching out to other town and county governmental agencies and community organizations to determine possible routes that could be destination oriented. Eventually the sub-committee would like to establish links to schools, parks, shopping centers and historic sites within the county.

‘Expanding the circle’ to encompass victims By Jeff Say

Culpeper Times Staff Writer The focus of law enforcement is changing. That was the message Virginia State Police Special Agent Jon Cromer told attendees at the annual luncheon hosted by Culpeper Victim/Witness Program Monday, commemorating National Crime Victims’ Rights Weeks. Cromer, a Psychological Criminal Profiler, ICIAF Fellow Virginia State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation, talked about three things he’s learned throughout his 27 year career, 21 of those focusing on violent crime. As a trooper, you’re taught to catch the perpetrator, Cromer said, and at times that can become the sole focus. He’s had to remind himself of the human element, that the victims are affected by the crimes and need to be addressed as though they are your friends, neighbors and fellow citizens. “The temptation exists to gain distance from survivors of heinous crimes because they take time, they take cognitive attention away from pursuit of the offender,” Cromer ➤ See Victims, Page 5

➤ Victims, from Page 4 said. “I have been compassionate in all cases, but I’m confessing that there is a temptation to distance yourself. The opportunity exists to serve those individuals.” Progress has been made in victims rights and services and Cromer said building stronger relationships is key, especially addressing how to engage the community and what law enforcement’s’ role should be. “At one time, victims in our community was an afterthought,” Cromer said. “Victims were little more than crucial witnesses to me. In other words my job was to identify what had been committed and then if probable cause exists. Don’t forget to send a subpoena to a victim.” That mentality has changed in recent years. “The good news is that society has improved over the years and on the local, state and federal level we as people have made strides to how we can better understand the needs of victims,” Cromer said. Now, the focus is being redirected to help reduce crime by awareness and prevention programs and officers are using lessons learned in the field and applying them to help with victims rights. “That experience has taught me some things I wasn’t taught or I 2018_Gnarly_Ad_CT.pdf 1 4/9/18

Local News failed to learn as a rookie,” Cromer said. His experiences have led him to realize that victims cannot forget. He referenced the book “Seven Sins of Memory” and talked about the final sin - persistence. “Repeated recall of disturbing information, that we would prefer to banish from our minds altogether,” Cromer said. “In other words these are things we cannot forget.” Victims are forever haunted by the atrocities they’ve witnessed, and law enforcement - while working to solve the crime, need to be aware of their feelings as well. He talked about going along to tell a family of two young girls - ages 10 and 12 - who went missing on March 25, 1975, that they thought they had a suspect. The response from the mother changed his perspective. “I saw in her face and I heard in her voice something I was not expecting,” Cromer said. “She said ‘I no longer care’ that you have a suspect. ‘I just want my girls.’” The second lesson he’s learned is that “catching the bad guy is way less edifying than you may think.” “I’ve never been near anything that looks like a celebration,” Cromer said. “At the heart of the matter is a very sad story that cannot be undone.” That has also led him to realize that crime affects a person more 9:23 AM

panding the Circle.” That has led Cromer to have revelations about law enforcement and how they can better help. “I no longer assume I know exactly how to help,” Cromer said. “I no longer expect the incarceration of the offender to produce a celebration. The individual effects of crime are far greater than we ever knew.” Following Cromer’s presentation, Mark W. Nowacki, Director, Culpeper Victim/Witness Program honored Culpeper Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court Clerk Bethany McClanahan with a plaque for her work with victims. “I am a public servant and I have been for 16 year, any deputy clerk that has worked with me, I refer to them as my girls,” McClanahan said. “We are caring, loving and we try to put ourselves in the victims’ shoes. I hope when you think of my office, you think of it in a good way.”

than he thought and the definition of a victim is changing. He recalled the story of his nephew Kyle, who was on campus the day of the shooting at Virginia Tech. He was not in the same building as the shooter, but all throughout the experience the air conditioner above them made a popping sound, making those in his building believe the shooter was nearby. It was a traumatizing experience and he too, is a victim. “I’ve learned how crime affects people, it’s far greater than we ever knew,” Cromer said. He also addressed vicarious trauma, trauma that affects first responders. “I’m starting to wonder if seeing repeated effects of violence is like receiving multiple concussions,” Cromer said. “They have a cumulative effect.” This year’s theme for Crime Victims Awareness week is “Ex-

➤ Foundation launched in memory of Ben Long will host third annual 5K, walk on Saturday at Yowell Meadow Park By Jeff Say

Culpeper Times Staff Writer Ed and Gloria Long never thought it could happen to them. Ed remembers hearing when a young person would complete suicide and he would say “how could anything be so bad in that young life?’” “Little did I know it would bite me in the butt one day,” he says now. Ed and Gloria’s son Ben committed suicide April 12, 2015 after suffering from substance abuse, becoming addicted to heroin following a work accident. They’ve now dedicated their lives to helping others who suffer from depression, substance abuse and suicide by starting the Living the Dream Foundation. The foundation will host its third annual 5K and Walk from 9 a.m. to noon at Yowell Meadow Park

on Saturday. The cost $25 for runners while walkers are free, but a donation is appreciated. Their goal is to give hope to others who suffer from the same symptoms Ben did, ones they weren’t aware of until it was too late. The Long story Ben Long was a success story. He was a 2008 graduation of Culpeper County High School - a member of the marching band there lovingly known as “Clore’s Crew”, an Eagle Scout and a positive personality to his friends that knew him at Old Dominion University. “He was always the champion of the little guy,” Ed said. “He very much had Robin Williams’ personality,” Gloria said. “Ben was very outgoing and was very popular. People very much liked him. His friends were all so shocked it could happen.He was more depressed than we understood.” He was handy, always helping his friends fix cars and his personality - outwardly - was bright. He was the life of the party and his friends gravitated to him. ➤ See Hope, Page 7


➤ Hope, from Page 6 Lurking underneath, however, was a sadness. That sadness manifested itself following a work accident after he graduated from ODU, and he started taking pain medication. The pain medication soon wasn’t enough and he was introduced to heroin. His parents think he started to use it in January of 2014, but they aren’t sure. In fact, they weren’t aware of any issue until October of that year. “I was born and raised as an Inskeep, I would have never imagined any of my family to be on drugs, to have an addiction and certainly not to complete suicide,” Gloria said. Their first warning sign came when Ben’s ex-girlfriend called and said she was afraid he was going to kill himself. Worried, Gloria called him immediately and asked if everything was OK. He said it was, but her motherly instincts told her to keep reaching out. She slept with the phone by her bed all night, calling almost hourly to check in to make sure he was OK. In reality, he wasn’t. He moved home in the beginning of November, bringing with him a cat and later a dog. He wasn’t himself, often leaving in the middle of the night and disappearing for days. His younger brother Marshall, who had been taking care of him in Norfolk, stopped coming home because his brother was around. Still, it wasn’t until the first of the year that Ben acknowledged the issue. He had gone away again and hadn’t answered. On Jan. 2, 2015, he finally touched base and came home. Gloria confronted him and he admitted “Mom, I’m addicted to heroin and I desperately want to get off.” That alerted them to his substance abuse issue, but they still didn’t realize how depressed he was. Now, with hindsight being 20/20, they admit there were warning signs. Having taken the Gatekeeper training that helps identify those at suicide risk, Ed says his son was showing 11 of the 12 characteristics of a suicidal individual. Gloria recalls how he would always argue when she would point out it was a beautiful day outside. “He would say ‘Mom, do you see clouds in the sky?’,” Gloria said. “He would just go on about it’s not gorgeous. He was in a dark place.” Once they discovered he was on heroin, they reached out for help - but found none. Every place they called said there were no beds available - some said they’d have a bed available in five or six months. Ben needed help immediately. Instead, he drifted further into depression. He applied for a job repairing Sears appliances and was hired, but a speeding ticket had led to his license being revoked and when the company found out, they rescinded their offer. He was crushed. On the day he died, Gloria was upstairs when she heard a pop. She assumed his dog had broken something in the basement and went to investigate. What she found changed their lives forever and will haunt her for the rest of her life. “It was quite a shock to me of course,” Gloria said. “I had no idea. Even when I heard

the shot, I had no idea. Right before I had heard the shot he texted the three of us to say ‘I love you.’ But I hadn’t seen any of that, I just saw Ben. I went up and even touched him and said “Ben, you better not have, you better not have boy,” but he did.” Why Living the Dream In their grief, sitting with their remaining son Marshall at Pepper’s Grill because they weren’t allowed back in the house - it was now a crime scene - they pledged to share their story, to tell Ben’s tale and to do something. They just never realized how much of a difference they would make. They started to have people come up to them and talk - about their substance abuse issues, about family members having issues with depression and suicide and they asked “why us?” “People started coming to us before we even started the foundation, asking us for help,” Ed said. “Why would you ask us, we don’t know anything? We were the ones looking for help.” “When you hear from a child, speaking some of the same words that your deceased son was saying, I know you have to be trained,” Gloria said. “It’s terrifying.” They formed the foundation and called it Living the Dream. “Just about every kid we talked to would talk about Ben’s smile and how he was a friend to everybody,” Ed said. “They all commented on that when you would say hello to Ben, his comeback line was always ‘Living the Dream.’ The weird thing is I never once heard him say that.” In the three years since Ben’s passing, the epidemics of opioids and suicide has increased in the region. The Culpeper Police Department saved 19 lives last year from opioid overdose, the 20th life they saved was from a suicide attempt. The fact it has become so prominent has made it easier to find help. Ed and Gloria hope to be a part of that. “I think because everyone is talking about addiction and suicide it’s made it a little easier,” Ed said. “Law enforcement is, oddly enough, leading the charge. They have been the spearhead, but the addicts are a little more receptive to talking about it. I think those contemplating suicide, when you recognize the signs you have to reach out to that person.” Living the Dream Foundation has partnered with the town police for Hidden In Plain Sight, a program that helps alert parents to dangers that their kids may be facing that are hidden right under their noses. They’ve started scholarships for CCHS, Eastern View and Madison high schools and have Orange County High School in the works. Everywhere he goes when he talks to students, they all have a story that is similar to their experience. “It’s amazing to me how many people who have loved ones who have dealt with addiction,” Ed said. Their goal, with the 5K and their work, is to bring hope to the hopeless. “That’s probably what bothers me the most about Ben’s death, is he basically says it in the suicide note, that he had no hope,” Ed said. “There is hope,” Gloria said.

HOME & GARDEN Spring has finally arrived in Culpeper OUTDOOR OUTLOOK

Spring in Culpeper. We have been given the ability to appreciate beauty. Rather or not that ability was bestowed upon us by our creator or it be a natural instinct I don’t know....but I do thank god for it each and every day. I’d like to talk about some of the beautiful things you can see right here in our home town. Maybe share with you one of my favorite spots. Today as I drove in, I was looking at some of my favorite areas. Areas were natural layout and human desire meet to create a perfect harmony of form, beauty and function. One of these places is the corner of old orange road and 299. There is a little road off to the west

that can be seen from the top of the hill, lined with Forsythia, flowering trees and evergreens. A few houses splash into the landscape and then more dots of color as home after home and landscape after landscape lay out perfectly with one another. It’s worth a trip to see the show Mother nature puts on each spring. Culpeper is not North or South we are instead right in the middle, you can see this in the people that make up our great town. Southerner move a little faster, Northerners move a little slower that middle ground were things get done and people get along is where we like to travel. Our culture is blended in a perfect harmony. The same can be said to our native landscape. We fall into a Zone 7 right smack in the middle of the hardiness zones. Our landscape is littered with plantings pushing their boundaries Magnolia, Crape Myrtle and

New New Pathways Pathways Machinist Machinist Program Program

Hydrangea slip up from the south while Yew, Arborvitae and cypress slide down from the north. They come together to create some absolutely breath taking views. Couple these plantings with the beautiful country and mountain back drop that surround us and its no wonder I find myself walking or driving around just completely caught up in the moment as I enjoy one great view after another. So what is in bloom right now? Pear trees speckle the forest with white flowers on tall conical shaped heads. Cherry trees gracing the lawns with large out reaching branches or twisted drooping lines. Peach trees lay branch after branch full of brilliantly colored flower.

HISTORY

Tracking down the Louisana 16 It is a new day and one full of promise! I returned to the farm about a month ago after a six-week expedition to Louisiana. Trip, vacation or even journey are words that do not come close to describing the experience. The Oxford English Dictionary defines expedition as a journey undertaken by a group of people with a particular purpose, especially that of exploration, research, or war. Most of the description is apropos except for the war piece and a clarification of “a group of people.” There were no traveling companions: only me. Yet, there were dozens of others involved: as financial and moral supporters, colleagues assisting with the ground work and everywhere I landed there were others seeking the same truths and more than willing to share. The expedition was transformative as I imagine it is for most who engage in such things. The nuts and bolts of the exploration and research were to come to some level of closure on the quest for the Louisiana 16. In 1834 James Madison sold those individuals-who may or may not have been 16 in number- to William Taylor who relocated them to Pointe Coupee Parish, Louisiana. The goals are to learn the identities of the enslaved, the nature of the lives that were also transformed by their journey and to connect with living descendants. Along the way, I have learned so much more! Virginia and Louisiana laws regarding the enslaved; the financial conditions of many of the Virginia aristocracy not exclusive to Mr. Madison; and some insight into James Madison’s thinking perhaps, not unlike our own when confronted with ill health and financial distress were informative byproducts of the research and beneficial to the overall picture. But none so much as a deeper and more comprehensive understanding of the Domestic Slave Trade (DST).

ZANN’S PLACE Zann Nelson

I do not remember studying this topic in high school or college; maybe an advanced degree with a specialization in African American history. But then again, American history lessons have bypassed much of what occurred. Sweeping under the table, glossing over, or not divulging such history is not the solution. I had the distinct privilege to address a class at So. University at New Orleans on the subject of DST, hopefully sparking a desire to know more! A study of the DST is a study in American politics, economics. expansion, agriculture, and science. The business was in full force from the abolition of the Atlantic Slave Trade in 1808 until 1860. Relocated to the cotton states of the deep south during this period were more than one million enslaved people from the upper South primarily Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina. Virginia was the leading exporter moving an estimated five hundred thousand people of color. An analysis of the DST offers a grasp of the political position of the Southern states, their dependence on slave labor and their subsequent engagement the American Civil War. It also provides a much more complete and mindful knowledge of the pain suffered at the time and the ongoing legacy that remains created by families torn asunder and lost to one another in perpetuity. The bulk of my time in Louisiana was spent among these descendants who hold family as precious and possess a heartening faith that lifts them far beyond the terrors of the past and the trials of the present. They amply satisfied the phrase in the definition that specified “a group of people.” Indeed, it is a new day filled with promise of a better tomorrow. Until next week, be well.

WILD IDEAS

Despite the continuing cold and snowy weather, spring limps on, and, as a nature writer, I’m busy trying to keep up on the many changes among our native flora and fauna this time of year. I usually put my hummingbird feeder out the second week in April, which is later that the ruby-throated hummingbirds usually arrive. This year, I put it out earlier, on March 31, but there are still no takers as of Tuesday (April 10). The hummers also seemed to arrive late, and were fewer, at the feeder last year, and I’m still trying to figure out why. Reports of hummingbirds arriving elsewhere in the county started to come in this week, so I’m sure mine are on their way or lurking out of sight somewhere nearby. Meanwhile, American goldfinches are now swapping out their dull winter attire for their bright-yellow breeding plumage. Last Monday (April 2), I wandered up the forested part of the mountain above my house to a stately rock outcrop to see how spring was progressing. On the way up, I heard saw a bunch of what birders call LBBs — little brown birds that are too alike to easily identify from a distance. They were too high up for me to see, and their twittering sounded like so many other birds that I gave up trying to identify the species. Here and there, hepatica was blooming here, as was spotted wintergreen (Chimaphila maculata), aka striped wintergreen or striped prince’s pine. The latter, a lowgrowing perennial evergreen herb, doesn’t bloom until June. Several inches above their three deep-green, striped leaves, some were waving tiny round, brown, pumpkin-like seedpods atop thin stems. The winds of Winter Storm Riley had blown down many white-oak acorns. These are the most nutrientrich of all oak mast and, with no squirrels in sight, the acorns were free for the other small rodents, deer, beers, turkey and other wildlife to enjoy. White-pine seedlings and saplings, most less than two feet tall, are plentiful up there, now growing amid their parents’ branches and cones, also brought down by Riley. These seedlings will grow more quickly now that so the loss of so many big trees has opened the canopy, allowing more of the sun’s light to reach

the forest floor. The trail that should have taken me down the mountain on the other side of the outcrop was buried under the many large trees that were blown over in the fierce winds of Riley. With all the downed trees and all the debris around them, I decided to go back the way I came up. Later in the day, on a nearby trail, I spotted spicebush now sporting its tiny yellow blooms. Like more earlyblooming trees and shrubs, its flowers appear before their leaves. Last Wednesday (April 4), temps rose past 60 degrees. Checking for activity at the lower ponds, I saw a frog jump in but couldn’t identify the species in time. A week later down there, I heard a pickerel frog calling, sounding like a door with a rusty hinge slowly opening. The next day, with temps having fallen again to below 60 degrees and the sun playing hide-and-seek, I was walking along a forest trail near my house and spotted basal leaves of cranesbill (wild geranium) starting to emerge on the forest floor. As I was looking for more, a spring azure quickly flew by, the first I’d seen this year of this tiny butterfly species. Butterflies are supposed to need ambient temperatures of around 80 degrees to fly. While, even in the sun, the temperature was only around 60 degrees, butterflies can convert the sun’s radiant energy to boost their internal temperature 20 degrees. The butterfly was likely looking for muddy spots in which to “puddle” — chow down on nutrients not available in flower nectar, such as salt. Clouds of them can gather in such spots this time of year. On Saturday (April 7), amid snow flurries, I headed back up the mountain. A mix of LBBs were foraging in the almost-dry stream bed along the trail up. I couldn’t get close enough to identify them — except for one little winter wren. The next day, with temps in the 50s, I headed back up the mountain, binoculars in hand, to search for the LBBs I had seen previously, but none were in the drainage. Could it be that the snow the day before spurred the foraging, and the warmer, sunnier weather made food hunting less urgent? The LBBs I had seen in the canopy further up the mountain seemed to have disappeared as well. By Tuesday, skunk cabbage leaves were well up in the wetland near the lower ponds. I found one plant whose blooms had now gone to fruit inside their cowl (spathe) — the single large, curled leaf that shoots up first ➤ See Wild, Page 15

➤ Wild, from Page 14 and contains the tiny flowers. Nearby, in the same wetland, I found lovely marsh marigold, its golden flowers contrasting with the green skunk cabbage. With these ponds about 100 feet lower in elevation than my house, the plants down there get a bit earlier start in the spring. Star chickweed and cutleaf toothwort was just starting to bloom last week, the flowers of some of the latter looking worse for cold-weather wear. Mayapple was coming up, its umbrella-like leaves still tightly furled on most of the plants. This week, all this plant activity started happening up around my house. Some of the mayapples have knob-shaped flower buds sitting on top. Once unfurled, the leaves will rise above the buds, the latter opening in the shelter beneath the leaves. Although we don’t have any on the

property, serviceberry is blooming in other places in Old Hollow. The cool temperatures this spring have not stopped other early-blooming trees from spewing pollen. Maples and elms have now joined the junipers (including eastern red cedar), driving the pollen count to high, according to Pollen.com. This week temps are forecast to finally rise, all the way to the low 80s by Friday, then back down to more seasonable levels. The forecast for May through June is warmer and wetter weather than the historic averages. After the drought that started last summer and the cold weather so far this spring, we could use both. © 2018 Pam Owen Pam Owen is a writer, editor, photographer, and passionate nature conservationist living in Rappahannock County, in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.

FILM • “The Sin of Harold Diddlebock” (Universal, 1947); aka “Mad Wednesday” (RKO, 1951) In celebration of the 125th anniversary of the birth of Harold Lloyd, one of the masters of movie comedy from the silent era who successfully made the transition to talkies, the Packard Campus Theater presents Lloyd’s final film. Director Preston Sturges coaxed Lloyd out of retirement to star in “The Sin of Harold Diddlebock,”

a comedy he wrote with Lloyd in mind. It opens with footage cleverly lifted from Lloyd’s 1925 silent classic “The Freshman” in which Harold’s go-getting character scores the triumphant winning touchdown for his college football team. We now see Harold twenty years later, working at a boring job with his life going nowhere. Things soon change when he is talked into having the first alcoholic drink of his life which unleashes a whole new uninhibited side of him. The film was reedited and reissued in 1950 as “Mad Wednesday.” 77 min. Free, at the Library of Congress Packard Campus Theater located at 19053 Mt. Pony Rd. in Culpeper, VA. No reservations taken.

Robert Strauss and Harvey Lembeck (repeating their Broadway roles), provide comic relief and Otto Preminger turns in an outstanding performance as the Nazi camp commander.

VIEWS Gazing at our reflection on Facebook THE MARSHALL PLAN

What bugs us most about the use of personal information by Marshall Conner Facebook? Did we honestly think that it was created just to serve our vanity without a price? The foundation of this private business (and this is an important distinction) is that it was built upon the hope that all 1.32 billion of us will freely toss our personal information into the ether. Our likes, conversations and shopping preferences are a goldmine to marketers, businesses, political parties, investigators and rip-off artists. We are the product. What is most annoying to users of this app is that full consent for information was agreed to in the company’s terms of service. The old warning of buyers beware certainly rings true. As a private business should the

government be questioning its use of freely given data? Should government move to regulate or somehow break up it all up? Is that the job of government? Facebook’s appeal and hook can be found at the very core of human nature—in religion, mythology and history. When we gaze into the blue-hued screen of our phone we believe it’s opening the world to us, but it is also trapping us in a snare constructed of our own vanity. Consider Greek mythology and the cautionary tale of Narcissus, a man known for his looks. He was the son of a God and nymph---that sounds like a life of privilege. Narcissus was lured to a pool, where he saw his reflection in the water and fell deeply in love with his own image. It was so bad that he could not leave the beauty of his own reflection. Narcissus became lost amid the world that surrounded him. Sound familiar? In Christianity, there was the fallen angel Lucifer, who lost it all for his own deadly sin of excessive pride.

“It was Pride that changed angels into devils; it is humility that makes men as angels,” wrote St. Augustine. Like so many people I am distracted and sometimes hindered by pride. There is a thrill in a byline and praise from readers. Likes and comments stroke, poke and wave at our egos. There are also many benefits from Facebook in my opinion. It can reunite friends, promote conversation across national boundaries and help us share our lives with family. It can foster unity, or it can toss fuel on the fires of revolution. I think Facebook when used as a tool and not an emotional crutch can be useful, informative and entertaining. As a writer, photographer and marketing professional it works quite well as a vehicle for self-promotion and enrichment. In a time where we are buried in information we must ask ourselves how we are using it and more importantly how it is using us? Can it be a lesson in maturity we

are going through, a puberty of the technology age? Maybe in a world of hoodies and t-shirts we should search for our civility, humanity and our tolerance of discourse. In addressing our immaturity, we might rise above our innate narcissism. The polarization and politicization of mass media, government and business is troubling on many levels—but the root of the problem can be found in individual and collective pride. Imagine how much more humanity could accomplish or see if we just stepped away from our own reflection. This week, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg had to step out from behind the electronic curtain and gaze at the “Frankenstein” he lovingly sewed together and brought to life with the breath of his own ego. Facebook will add a “see how you’re affected” tool at the top of our news feeds. How have you been affected? “Dad put down your phone and let’s go fishing.”

Understanding the progression of dementia AGEWISE

You may have heard the expression, as written by Shakespeare in Hamlet, “They say an old man is twice the child.” For just about everyone moving into the upper age brackets, we can understand this sentiment – older people often lose their teeth, their ability to walk, etc. But when dealing with dementia, a person is even more apt to “become a child” as the disease progresses. We had a very informative speaker at the Library on April 7, Judy Cleary

Ellen Phipps

of Branchlands in Charlottesville. Judy has worked with residents with memory impairment for many years and she shared some of her knowledge and experience with the audience. As part of her presentation, Judy reviewed what she called the “age of acquisition” in order to better understand the stages of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. In the early stages of dementia, those affected are generally able to function relatively independently, as can a 12-year old, but may have poor judgment and need help with certain tasks. As the person advances in their memory impairment, they “move backward” through the stages they gained as they went from infancy,

through childhood, to adulthood. So, for example, in the middle stages of dementia, the person may lose the ability to select proper clothing (a skill they gained at about age 5). In the later stages, the ability to shower and toilet independently becomes lost (acquired at age 2-4). And in the last stage of dementia, the capacity to speak is lost (as it was attained at 1-2 years) and to do much beyond smile and hold up one’s head (learned at 1-4 months); at this stage, the person with dementia is completely dependent upon others to sustain life, as are infants. Understanding this disease progression helps us as caregivers to come to terms with which skills are retained and which are no longer

available. “The seasons form a great circle in their changing and always come back again to where they were. The life of man is a circle from childhood to childhood.” Black Elk, 1863-1950. For more information on the stages of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, go to: https://www.alz.org/alzheimers_ disease_stages_of_alzheimers.asp We are very pleased to invite you to our 3rd annual caregivers’ conference, to be held on Tuesday, June 19, 2018, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Germanna Community College’s Culpeper Campus.

Repairing your rotator cuff THEM BONES AND JOINTS

Last month, I talked about the decision to have a rotator cuff repair. Today, I will discuss the surgery and what it entails. At surgery, the ends of a fragmented or torn rotator cuff are trimmed back to healthy tissue and sutured back into the area of freshly prepared boney groove where the tendons originally inserted. This is done with sutures through the groove in the bone or by using metal or bio-absorbable bone anchors through which the sutures are placed. As mentioned, this can be accomplished with a pure arthroscopic procedure performed through multiple small incisions, a mini-open approach in combination with arthroscopy, or a purely open technique. Your physician will describe the technique that works best for him. When repairing a rotator cuff, I believe in enlarging the subacromial space for better visualization as well as allowing a larger area for the repaired cuff to move and heal. Remember how the rotator cuff lives in a snug space? That’s the subacromial space—the space between the humeral head and the acromion. When a tendon thickens or partially or fully fragments, this space can scarcely contain its bulk, and further irritation occurs, especially when the arm is moved

Your financial support of Give Local Piedmont serves as testimony ➤ Dementia, from Page 20 throughout the journey of Dementia.” She will use a variety of teaching methods to train the audience, both professional and family caregivers,

away from the body. To correct this condition, the surgeon may release or altogether remove a dense, wide ligament on the front of the acromion that covers part of the rotator cuff and shave the undersurface of the acromion itself to enlarge the space. This operation, known as an acromioplasty (uh-CHROMEee-oh-plasty), may be done either arthroscopically or as an open procedure. Again, there will be some oozing of blood here, establishing another site in which scar tissue may later form postoperatively. So, how successful is rotator-cuff surgery? Every surgeon has his own statistics, and because rotator-cuff disease comes in varying degrees and forms, there is probably no one answer. If we include all rotator-cuff conditions ranging from tendinosis and impingement syndrome to massive tears, I would say surgery is probably 80–85 percent successful. Massive tears are very difficult to repair, sometimes necessitating grafts, tendon transfers, and more than one operation, but fortunately such tears are few and far between. Even though results of surgery for massive tears may be only good to excellent in less than 35% of cases, the more common and less complicated procedures for rotatorcuff disease increase the overall statistics of success. What complications can occur as a result of the surgery? Major ones are listed below: • Anesthetic complications • Bacterial infection • Re-tearing of the tendon repair

during rehabilitation • Failure of the repair to heal, with later re-tearing • Loss of motion and pain caused by scar tissue from the surgery itself • Continued pain • Weakness The first three speak for themselves. As for the fourth, once repaired, why wouldn’t the tendon heal? First, the area of bone from which the tendon originally tore is the area to which it must be reattached. I believe the initial loss of blood supply to the tendon often occurs here, at the bone-tendon interface. Multiple biopsies of bone in this area proved to me that, in most instances, the bone had no blood supply, and sometimes it was even sclerotic (skler-OTTick), or hard and dead. Despite the surgeon’s best effort, an area that is that unhealthy may never regain an adequate blood supply to allow healing. Secondly, the tendon may have weakened and pulled apart because it, too, had a poor blood supply or none, and while the surgeon must trim away all unhealthy tendon tissue, the tendon that’s left may not be healthy enough to heal. In addition, if the tendon is cut back too far in the effort to reach healthy tendon, reattaching it to bone may create so much tension that the tendon may pull out and retract again after the operation. As you can see, the operation is not easy to perform successfully every time. Next month, I will discuss the rehabilitation for rotator cuff repairs.

‘Two Trains Running’ tracks the sixties CURTAIN CALLS

By 1969, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X were dead. The nightly news was full of Vietnam, sitins, marches, madness. In 1969, we went to the moon, Woodstock “happened”, and Charles Manson put his demented murderous scheme into action. But in the Hill District neighborhood of Pittsburgh, the news was local. “Two Trains Running”, August Wilson’s seventh play in his ten-play “Pittsburgh Cycle”, explores the African-American experience in the cultural whirlpool of the late 1960s. Like most of Wilson’s oeuvre, it takes place in one interior setting among friends and acquaintances who bring their own angle to the theme of the decade. Wilson’s theme for 1969 is recompense – getting what you’re owed on age-old debts. Sometimes the debtor is a wily business owner; sometimes the debtor is Life itself. Memphis Lee’s diner, an established neighborhood eatery in Pittsburgh’s Hill District, is about to

be bought by the city and demolished. Memphis (Eugene Lee) put everything he had into making it successful, and it was – until Urban Renewal arrived. Now his fight is with the city to get the price he wants, not what the city has offered to pay. Lee, as the center of the story, brings an intelligent energy to his determination not to be driven away unfairly, as his family was once driven off their farm in the deep South. Wilson’s trademark dialogue, the shot and ricochet of familiar banter, keeps “Two Trains Running” at under three hours, with peaks and lulls but no dead air. Into the diner come the familiar locals to drink coffee, hear the news, and maybe put a dollar on the numbers racket. That numbers runner is Wolf (Reginald Jackson), who uses the diner pay phone to do business. Memphis knows the legal dangers to his business, and a few of the flair-ups begin with a pay phone ringing in the corner. Everyone courts Luck in his own way. Some pay a dollar to rub the head of “Prophet Samuel” lying in his coffin across the street at West’s funeral home. Rumor has it that jewels and hundred dollar bills are tucked in the coffin with him, but the sharp-eyed,

COURTESY PHOTO BY C. STANLEY PHOTOGRAPHY Frank Riley III (Hambone) and Carlton Byrd (Sterling) in August Wilson’s Two Trains Running, running March 30-April 29, 2018 at Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater.

Want to go? What: “Two Trains Running” by August Wilson Where: Arena Stage, 1101 Sixth St. SW, Washington, D.C. Call: (202) 488-3300 or visit arenastage.com Playing through April 29 ever practical West (William Hall, Jr.) scoffs at that notion. There is something of the shark about West, groomed in sleek black and ready with a smooth offer for Memphis’s property. We somehow know the offer is not meant to do Memphis a favor. Retired house painter and poor man’s philosopher, Holloway (David Toney) sits at “his” table and directs everyone with a problem to take it to Aunt Ester. She’s the 322- year-old gypsy behind the red door who solves everyone’s problems by telling them to throw twenty dollars in the river. Like numbers playing, the luck starved patrons scoff at this kind of magic, but most of them try it anyway. Director Juliette Carrillo, working with a clearly defined, dynamic cast, plays the personalities, undertones, and through lines like a piece of classical jazz. Sterling (Carlton Byrd), young and hungry and just released from prison for robbery, is a man on the make. That flair for recklessness has been sharpened to wariness, but when he looks at Risa, he thinks he sees a future. He also brings a shot of enthusiasm to the memorial rally for Malcolm X, an event which symbolizes the new activism, and which Memphis disdains as a waste of time. Memphis’s waitress, Risa, (Nicole Lewis) serves coffee, fills sugar containers, and dishes out beans with the stolid quiet of a woman who has learned the hard way to be

nobody’s fool. It’s been noted before that Risa holds a singular position in the play. The black men all have their grievances from years of dealing with white men’s rough upper hand, but Memphis orders her around in the same way, alternating demands with complaints. And then there’s Hambone (Frank Riley III). His daily habit of rushing in and ranting “He gonna gi’ me my ham!” is a nuisance to everyone but Risa, who takes a personal interest in caring for him. Twenty years earlier he was cheated by Lutz, a white butcher, who gave him a chicken instead of a ham for painting his fence. Hambone lives in this endless loop of futilely demanding his recompense until even Sterling tries to teach him something new – “Black is Beautiful.” Misha Kachman’s set details the moribund little café right down to the steaming pot of beans, but it is an unfortunate reality of the arena configuration that those of us on one side cannot see the face of the antique Rock-ola juke box in the corner. It matters because “being fixed”, as Memphis claims, didn’t fix it until it has its own magic moment of lighting up for Risa and Sterling. Produced in collaboration with the Seattle Repertory Theatre, “Two Trains Running” lacks the intense family conflict of “The Piano Lesson” and “Fences”, yet maintains a steady focus on the twin tracks of past and present, the long, soul-corroding effects of debts unpaid, and the liberation of accounts finally received. Maggie Lawrence is a member of the American Theatre Critics Association. She is a retired English and drama teacher.

KNOW YOUR NEIGHBORS

Erick Kalenga

Pastor, His Village Coordinator of Rize-Up What brought you to Culpeper?

In 2001, early around January or February I was in Cape Town, South Africa. I got sent to do a missions program in Central Africa Republic. I was there for three months or so. I met the vice ambassador of the U.S. at the time and I built some relationships with different guests coming in. Long story short, after three months I went back to South Africa and three weeks later there was an attempt of coup in the Central Africa Republic. While I was in Central Africa Republic, I got a Visa to come to the U.S. for five years. One of the couples I met in the republic, I was corresponding with them and they said “hey, do you want to come to the U.S.?” They paid for my and they were supposed to be the ones who picked me up from the airport. To my surprise, they weren’t able to pick me up so nobody was waiting for me when I showed up in June 2001. I had a couple of business cards from acquaintances I had made, so I called this particular person and he normally lives in Virginia Beach. At the time I called him, he was 30 minutes away from Dulles. He put me in a hotel for the first night and two weeks after that he said he had a condo in Alexandria he only used for business, so I could stay there as long as I want. Two weeks later he said he had a townhouse in Culpeper, so I came here and he gave me a business card and said “call this guy and he will take you to church.” That was Mike Sharman. So I called Mike, he was my first contact here and I wasn’t planning to come here and it seemed like God wanted me here.

Now you have Project Rize Up, that you’re coordinating with the town police. What exactly is Project Rize Up? Project Rize Up is a coaching program. Some folks may understand it better as a mentoring program.

We’re looking at life as sports, so we want to coach kids through life. The reason I picked the word coaching is because mentoring has been overused and some people have a negative feel to it. As an athlete, I find that most people can relate to coaches on a positive side. This is literally a prevention. There’s a lot of organizations that are doing great work, at this point everything we’re doing is more reactive, not proactive. Project Rize Up is a free program and we are offering “mentoring” in adults who is being screened with a background check and we pair them with a compatible youth (males with males, females with females). They are able to offer that additional positive reinforcement in a child. The goal is to get into elementary schools, the elementary age groups because the behavior is starting to really show. Master Police Officer Mike Grant was first guy we got from the police department. By God’s divine grace and Mike’s consistency, this young man (he was paired with) had his life turned around. He’s now in the explorer program here at the police department. We’ve had a few more officers who have stepped up who want to be involved. We have nine folks involved now. My goal now is to really build and train a lot of mentors before we really advertise big. We have a big training coming up April 30. Really the goal is with the opioid and suicide epidemic, the warning

signs start way earlier than that. Having a positive person around can help detect those and help the kid redirect it.

Is this geared toward those who might not have a positive role model in their lives?

It’s primarily for those who do not have a positive role model in their lives. We know there’s a lot of male boys today who don’t have a male figure in their lives. We definitely are pushing for that and encouraging them to have the opportunity. Our mentors are committed to be with the kid for a minimum of a year. You can’t build a rapport with a kid within 30 days.

How do they build that trust? How do you forge that relationship?

We’re encouraging the mentors, this is not something you push or force, it has to happen organically through certain activities. We find the things the client is interested in. We try to encourage all the mentors, you’re first month is not where you try to correct the behavior. You’re first 30 days is just being willing to open and listen. They want someone to listen to them, not to be talked to all the time. Activities will help with that trust building.

How does faith play a role in the project? Our church (His Village) is

sponsoring the program, and the reason why we’re doing it this way is because we want to infuse the faith component as strongly as we can, as the opportunity permits. We know we can’t shove faith into someone’s head. It’s something that has to exemplified and demonstrated. The reason we are doing it outside the government system, is so we can do that.

How difficult is it to connect with kids on that level?

At this point what I’ve discovered is if you say “church,” people are shut down to it. But God, they have a tendency to be open to it. Most people are just tired of church, but when you talk about God there’s an opportunity for a conversation there. When we talk to kids, they’re not opposed to God, it’s more the organized religion they have an issue with. If it starts with good and evil, you can get a conversation started.

How are you finding the kids for Project Rize Up?

At this point we had a couple come organically, and we’ve had a couple word of mouth happen. We’ve had a couple school counselors who have mentioned to the parents. I’ve received a call from RRCS about what the process is to get kids into the program. The word is out but I want to make sure we have enough men and women willing to step in.”

H E A LT H ACL tears: A painfully common knee injury HEALTH

It’s the injury that often begins with a dreaded “pop,” followed by knee pain and swelling. Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries occur about 100,000 times per year in the U.S. — most often to young athletes while playing sports. Soccer, basketball, football and tennis players experience the largest number of ACL injuries. A sprain or tear of the ACL typically happens when the bones of the upper and lower leg twist in opposite directions under the full weight of the body. This often comes with deceleration of speed and a sudden change in direction with a planted foot, or what is often referred to as a “cutting maneuver.”

Dr. Elisabeth Robinson

An all-too-common knee injury While an ACL sprain or tear can

affect anyone at any age, it most commonly occurs in athletes. About two-thirds of these injuries happen to 15- to 29-year-olds while participating in a sport. Women have a threefold greater risk of ACL sprains and tears than men. The reasons for their higher injury rate include smaller anatomy, less muscular support for the knee joint and even hormonal function, which can make joints more vulnerable to injury during certain phases of the menstrual cycle. How to know if you might |have an ACL injury Certain clues signal an ACL injury — the pop, followed by difficulty walking and pain, swelling and tenderness of the knee area. A physician can use a physical exam and an MRI to confirm an ACL injury diagnosis. The immediate treatment is to immobilize the knee and apply ice. A patient’s long-term treatment options vary depending on several factors, including age, pre-injury activity level and a willingness to take it easy,

according to board-certified orthopedic surgeon Elisabeth C. Robinson, MD. “Our ultimate goal with treatment of an ACL issue is to prevent another knee injury while enabling the patient to return to their desired level of work or athletics,” explains Robinson, who practices at UVA Orthopedics, a department of Novant Health UVA Health System Culpeper Medical Center. Which treatment is right for you? The more conservative treatment options for an ACL injury include physical therapy aimed at strengthening the muscles that support the knee joint, as well as knee braces and limiting activities. Another choice is surgery. So how do you know which treatment approach is right for you? “First, we consider the age and activity level of the patient,” Robinson notes. “People — especially older people — who don’t engage in a lot of rigorous or high-impact physical activity probably don’t need ACL reconstruction surgery. With physical therapy and time, many people are able to walk, bike and even jog following an ACL injury, even without surgery.” Younger and more physically active patients may be candidates for ACL reconstruction surgery. About 80,000 procedures are performed annually in the U.S., according to the National Institutes of Health. “People in their teens and young adults who are doing more rigorous sports like soccer or basketball, or who have jobs that require physical activity where the knee is buckling, typically do need surgery following an ACL tear,” says Robinson. “Without surgical reconstruction, every time the knee buckles, there’s a risk that the patient is damaging the joint’s

cartilage, which can cause rapidly accelerated post-traumatic arthritis of the knee joint.” The prognosis following an ACL injury If you or a loved one has suffered an ACL sprain or tear, the prognosis can vary greatly, depending on your age, activity level and which treatment route you choose. A full recovery is possible for those with a complete tear who decide to forego surgery. “Typically, patients will heal and can learn to compensate for the injured knee,” explains Robinson. “The torn ACL will scar into the surrounding tissues, although it doesn’t return to its original state. The knee joint will still be loose, making it susceptible to reinjury. Physical therapy therefore is needed to strengthen and stabilize the surrounding structures.” Those who choose surgical reconstruction and postoperative physical therapy often return to their previous level of activity or athletics. While outcomes vary by person, Robinson says patients can usually start running about three months after surgery and resume sports training at around six months post-surgery. Learn more about ACL injury and prevention at a lecture, “ACL injury: From start to finish,” Thursday, April 26, at 6 p.m., by Elisabeth Robinson, MD, an orthopedic surgeon at UVA Orthopedics, a department of Novant Health UVA Health System Culpeper Medical Center. As a former Division I collegiate soccer player and boardcertified orthopedic surgeon, Robinson knows ACL injury well. This lecture is free and open to the public. Registration is suggested, but not required. To learn more about UVA Orthopedics, please visit our website.
