BOS puts community center question on ballot By Jeff Say

Culpeper Times Staff Writer The Culpeper County Board of Supervisors are letting the public decide if they should spend $13.1 million on a community center, voting 4-3 at their monthly meeting Tuesday to add a referendum question to the ballot in November. The question will read: “Shall Culpeper County, Virginia contract a debt and issue its general obligation bonds in the maximum principal amount of $13,144,000 for the purpose of paying the costs, in whole or in part, for construction of a Community Recreation Center, which may include an indoor competition swimming pool, a therapy pool, a multi-purpose gymnasium, fitness equipment, exercise class space, classrooms for various activities, and a soccer field, as well as necessary access, parking, and utility improvements?" The vote for the referendum passed 4-3, with supervisors Bill Chase, Steve Walker and Jack Frazier opposing. Frazier suggested the board was moving too quickly and should have the referendum in 2019, to give more time to research. Supervisors who voted to put the referendum on the budget were Gary Deal, Brad Rosenberger, Alexa Fritz and Sue Hansohn. The projected building is estimated at $9.8 million, site development should cost $1.6 million and off-site costs would total $1.5 million. That sets the total cost for the community center at $13.1 million. The proposed center would include a competition sized pool with 8 lanes 25 yards in length. A therapy pool is also budgeted along with two basketball courts, a fitness area, an aerobics room, preschool rooms, a nursery, an activity room and office space.

It is not known who will operate the facility, and Cedar Mountain District supervisor Frazier suggested there should be a memorandum of understanding with an entity before moving forward with the referendum. “We’re moving kind of fast,” Frazier said. “We’re taking this to a referendum with no agreement from anyone to run this thing.” There has been discussions with the YMCA operating the facility, but no agreement is in place. Frazier also suggested other Culpeper businesses could step forward to help, but again said they are moving along too soon without a business plan in place. “I’d like to see a contract, there are some important issues that we’re not discussing,” Frazier said. “I’m not sure this location (in the Catalpa District) fits our needs, there’s utility costs, there’s so many issues that need to be addressed before we move forward.” West Fairfax Supervisor Gary Deal has championed the community center from the start and he gave an impassioned plea as to why the facility is needed. “It will be a center that brings our community together,” Deal

said. “We’re asking the voting public to consider improving quality of life for all.” He told a story about having to take his AAU basketball team to the Orange Field House to practice because there was not enough gymnasium space in Culpeper. He argued with Chase when Chase again questioned who was going to run the facility. “We don’t have to get there today,” Deal said. “We’re going to own the building.” “Owning the building doesn’t mean a damn thing if you don’t know what your going to use it for,” Chase countered. Jefferson District supervisor Rosenberger said that the purpose of the referendum was to see if the public wanted to take on the debt. It doesn’t mean they are tied to funding the center. “If the referendum passes, it doesn’t mean we have to move forward,” he said. “”We have to make sure we have approval of the voters.” East Fairfax representative Walker said that citizens have approached him with a wide variety of concerns and again cautioned moving too fast.

“I question the need for gymnasiums,” he said. “We have an obligation to work with our school system to make sure gyms are available for our citizens. That’s an issue for me.” The subject of a community pool is one that Walker said he’s been addressing for 25 years, back when he was on town council. “I’m all in favor of a swimming pool, I think it’s something we need,” he said. “I think we’re not ready for a referendum at this time.” Catalpa supervisor Hansohn pointed out that in approving the Fiscal Year 2019 budget earlier in the meeting, the supervisors had set aside $2.4 million to pay down debt service as a forward thinking effort. The FY 2019 budget is $62.6 million, which included $200,000 budgeted for community center design work. “I personally don’t think we’re ready,” Walker said. “We have to be very careful how we speak about it so it doesn’t sound like we’re endorsing this.” “I understand Mr. Walker’s concerns,” Rosenberger countered. “We need to let the people decide what they want to do.”

Betty Newhouse Circle flea market set for Saturday Culpeper United Methodist Church’s Betty Newhouse Circle will host their annual flea market Saturday, supporting local nonprofits. Carolyn Johnson, treasurer of the organization, said that the flea market has been an annual event for more than 30 years and is hosted in the spring and the fall. They charge $15 a table and funds that are raised are donated to local charities and church functions. The money raised goes to the Culpeper Free Clinic, Culpeper Food Closet, Teens Opposing Poverty, SAFE and some funds stay within the church for Music Camp for the children to attend. “Typically there’s always a need in the church for the funds to be donated,” Johnson said. CUMC’s mission group also helps out, raising money by hosting a concession stand. This year, the CUMC mission trip will visit Cuba for the fifth time since 2013. The group of 16 will be in Cuba from June 25-July 3, their first trip as a Covenant Church. “We wanted to focus on connecting with one specific church,” CUMC mission member Karen Bean said. The money raised from the concession stand will help support the $5,000 love offering they take each year. Items available at the 34 registered tables include furniture, clothing, children’s toys, arts and crafts and the CUMC preschool will host their annual spring plant sale. “It’s a typical flea market, there’s everything under the sun,” Johnson said. Johnson said the fact they’re right on Business 29 has helped them attract a crowd for more than 30 years. “We’re so visible,” Johnson said.


“We’re right on the main drag.” The flea market set up begins at 7 a.m. and the event runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Unfortunately for them, the newly sentient navigational computer has other ideas... “Space Voyage” is Puzzle Room Live LLC’s most elaborate room to date. It includes multiple custom-made consoles with both electronically and physically interactive puzzles for players to solve. The centerpiece of the experience is the navigational computer. With a sassy attitude and a very different idea about how this voyage should end, the computer interacts with the players as they progress toward saving the ship, and themselves. “We’ve been developing ‘Space Voyage’ for a few months and everyone is really pleased with how it has come together,” says owner and puzzle master Dan Glanz, Jr. “The staff has put in a lot of work to make this room a fully engrossing experience. We think our customers are really going to love this one.” Potential participants should be aware that although “Space Voyage” contains no strobe effects, it does have flashing lights. People who are susceptible to that type of stimulus should check with the venue ahead of time. “Space Voyage” is suitable for children, but also challenging and fun for adults.

BIZ BIO Bees & Trees celebrates five years of providing an 'experience' By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer Jeff and Teresa Gregson are celebrating five years of Bees & Trees. The farm, located at 18028 Carrico Mills Road in Elkwood, has blossomed from a Christmas tree farm to include fresh honey, jams, local farm products and now regional offerings of wine and beer. The farm market store will officially open for the season on May 4, and the Gregsons have special plans for opening, including a new coffee blended especially for their retail store, facepainting, goats and pony rides for the kids and wine samples for the adults. A lobbyist in Richmond, Jeff had planned to make this his retirement job and move to Elkwood when he left Richmond. Instead, the couple sold their house in the city and moved to the country shortly after buying the farm. Tere-

sa retired from her lobbyist job of 24 years and it’s become a weekend and evening position for Jeff - and they wouldn’t have it any other way. What started as just a Christmas tree farm - open from the day after Thanksgiving to Christmas Eve has become a seasonal must visit for tourists and residents alike. Shortly after moving in, they added the bees and began to harvest honey in 2015. “People want local honey,” Jeff said. “It’s just that simple.” “We thought it would be popular,” Teresa said. “We had no idea just how popular.” Pulling up the lane, visitors are greeted with a sign that reads “pardon the weeds, we’re feeding the bees.” The honey carries flavors of the wild flowers they planted in the front and the bees pollinate local ➤ See Bees, Page 5

OPEN FOR THE SEASON MAY 5-6 Wednesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

BRING THE FAMILY Fun activities for the kids including face paiting, $5 pony rides and the opportunity to pet rabbits, chickens and goats!


Jeff and Teresa Gregson will celebrate five years of owning Bees and Trees Farm May 5 and 6 as they open for the season. They will have a special anniversary blend of coffee for sale and other specials available.

Come celebrate our fifth anniversary as we open for the season May 5-6. Check out our Anniversary Blend coffee, honey teas, honey, jams, sauces, salsas, local wines and local craft beer!

➤ Bees, from Page 4 farms, bringing back hints of clover. The Gregsons plan to plant bulbs in the fall and offer cut flowers next spring - as another offering for visitors and as another pollen source for the bees. Last year they harvested 175 pounds of honey and had to hold some back at Christmas because people expect it. It makes a great stocking stuffer. As for the Christmas trees, that’s still the main attraction in the winter. They offer Canaan Firs, Norway Spruce, some White Pines and White Spruce and few Scotch Pines. Jeff, the President of the Virginia Christmas Tree Growers Association, agreed that last winter was a tight market due to the recession in 2007-2010. “After 2008 a lot of big growers down in Southwest Virginia, they were stuck,” Jeff said. “People were cutting back. This is one industry where you have to think out seven, eight or nine years.” Bees and Trees were lucky, they had enough to satisfy their customers until they sold out at the third week of the season. People were on the hunt for trees, which is part of the allure of the tree farm. “What we’ve learned is it’s experience,” Jeff said. “Some people

have been coming for years. It’s a tradition.” A fire pit sits outside the barn and Teresa sells smores. Families flock to find the perfect tree and enjoy each others company. “What we wanted to do was we wanted to create a family experience,” Teresa said. “It’s about creating memories.” Those memories include the friendly goats and a chance to pick out your own eggs from the hen house. Santa and Mrs. Claus usually come the third weekend of the month and the Gregsons hook up the wagon and take the kids for a ride while picking up folks cutting their own tree. They have between 6 and 7 acres, with approximately 2,500 trees on them. Last year, they sold more than 500 trees, with a little more than 300 of them from the farm. This year they’ll be selling an anniversary coffee, and with the advent of their ABC license, they’ll offer local craft beers and wines to go along with local cheeses they hope to soon offer along with their private label of jams, sauces and salsas. “We feel very strongly about local,” Teresa said. “We really support the idea of buying local.” Bees and Trees is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday beginning May. 4.

Secure and Safe wins E-Squared Competition By Jeff Say

Culpeper Times Staff Writer The topic of school safety is one that spoke to Maddelyn Ryckman. The Culpeper County High School student and her E-Squared team decided to find a way to address it. Secure and Safe- consisting of Ryckman, Ryan Eakins, Armani Hoffman and Jessica Janiszewski - won the E-Squared Competition April 26 with their portable, handheld scanning device to help law enforcement detect weapons to prevent mass casualty events. “How many of you have spent countless hours in the lines at the airport?” Ryckman asked during their presentation to the E-Squared judges Thursday. “Our device will simpilize the process by mobilizing a full body scanner and metal detector to decrease the amount of time it will take to get through the line.”

The team secured the $20,000 scholarship money offered through E-Squared by asking the Shark Tank-like investors for $210,000 for a 25 percent stake in their company with an expected 100 percent return by year five. Eakins explained during the presentation that their scanner increases safety and efficiency and that security personnel could use their device to provide a full custodial search without any intrusion to the body. “With school shootings on minds nationwide, our product is perfect for the education field as well,” Janiszewski explained. “School police could scan students prior to entering the building and to alleviate unease.” Designed to be lightweight, handheld and efficient, the device the students presented a mock up of weighed just a little more than a pound and a half and integrated a millimeter scanner with a metal detec➤ See E-Squared, Page 7

➤ E-Squared, from Page 6 tor, including a color coded scanner to indicate threat level and vibration alert. Ryckman thought of the idea while traveling to work in Manassas one day, prior to the shooting at Parkland, Fla. in February. “It was just based on all of the events going on at schools,” Ryckman said. “Over the years we’ve heard so many more TV broadcasts of all the problems going on and the dangers increasing in schools. We just thought it would be a great idea to alleviate police officers and their struggle with coming so close to harm's way.” The students met with police chiefs - including Orange and Culpeper - to find out what needs law enforcement had and if they thought the device would be useful. All said the Secure and Safe idea would help detect a threat and limit the contact an officer would have with an individual. “We definitely did a boatload of research,” Ryckman said. “We knew at airports they did have the full body scanners and based on that technology we could probably go further with that. Through research we saw other applications the millimeter waves would be able to go through.” Hoffman said it was intimidating standing in front of the eight judges. “It was very nerve wracking,” Hoffman said. “I had my trust in these guys and everything we did together. We’re so close now and I wouldn’t want to win this with anyone else.” The Secure and Safe team presented

their product with confidence and didn’t waver when former Culpeper County Administrator Frank Bossio grilled them about millimeter waves and the fact that sweat could cause false readings. “We put a lot of effort into the presentation aspect,” Janiszewski said. “How we wanted to word it to get the most emphasis on things and to show how big of an impact it would have on the world. I’m certainly not very great at public speaking, but it’s definitely helped me get better. I’m certainly thankful for that.” Former Culpeper County School board member George Dasher and Paul Pereira from Bingham and Taylor served as coaches for the team. “They were a blessing in disguise,” Eakins said. “They had their own set knowledge to help us improve. Mr. Dasher was an engineer, Mr. Pereira was the leading engineer for Bingham and Taylor. They both had a ton of information to build our protect and morph it into something that could transform the nation.” Dasher said that he’s been coaching for six years, and in those six years this was the best business plan he’s seen. Ryckman said the group wasn’t sure if they would market their product idea, but believes it would help the nation. “I think if anyone could come and implement this device in the real world, that would be amazing,” Ryckman said. Other teams that presented in the finals included BrewIt, Cut & Carry, Copper Cutlery, Relive Sleeve and Toss’T.

Anticipation! The magic potion that gets us up in the morning; gets us past the humdrum of routine, and often over the hump of life’s less than desirable events. It helps if the anticipation is for the promise of good things: presents, sweet time with family and friends, a great meal, good bottle of wine or that first smell of rebirth when the sun finally warms the dirt beneath your feet.

story. Once off the train they allegedly attacked the station master and began to throw “sticks and stones” at the trainmen. Apparently, word had spread rapidly as they were met by a large crowd of white men armed with baseball bats. According to a newspaper report, one of the rioters slipped off to a nearby house and returned with a gun. Instead of wounding one of the white men, this same man was shot in the leg, presumably not self-inflicted. The articles closed the report stating that a few of the men were arrested and taken to Culpeper to await a hearing. I have searched the courthouse for records and so far, have come up empty-handed. There are more files to examine. I met with the gentleman that put me on to the story and reported my findings. He not being from the South suggested that perhaps after some consideration the local authorities determined no harm, no foul and dropped the case. I was not convinced. I continued the research and found several additional articles (under different headings). Those commentaries painted a different

picture theorizing that the attempt to break the Jim Crow law by sitting in a “No Coloreds Allowed” section of the train was a ruse: the real intent was to murder the station master. I now have a more detailed account of the event with names! Until I can give you the best of my research, ponder on the statement below written in one of the newly discovered publications two days after the event. The article reported that two negroes named Jim and Frank – I have withheld the last names for now- were arrested. Jim was taken to Culpeper to await the next Grand Jury hearing and Frank was “fined and imprisoned at hard labor.” With names in my pocket, I will return to the courthouse and attempt to speak with someone that may have heard the stories. You can bet there will be more to come! Until next week, be well.

a six-month old, Azais never had a desire to find out who her birth parents were or why she was given up for adoption - until about a year ago. That journey has led her to wanting to support charities that can help expectant mothers navigate the emotional trek of adoption, so she hosted a Culpeper High-Heeled Happy Hour May 1 to benefit the Culpeper Pregnancy Center. High-Heeled Happy Hours provide women the opportunity to engage with each other in a fun, relaxed environment. Each High-Heeled Happy Hour is hosted by a different female business professional/ community leader who selects a charity beneficiary for the event proceeds that evening. Azais was the keynote speaker, telling her tale of finally deciding to search for her blood family and the complicated path it’s led her down. “I thought now would be the time to find this person, but I honestly thought it would take so long,” Azais said. She was wrong on the time it would take, as she applied to receive her birth certificate from Canada, used a Facebook group called Search Angels and within 24 hours a woman reached out to her and the process took off. “I sent it to her Friday morning at 10 a.m. and by Friday afternoon I knew who my mother was,” Azais said. She reached out, through the Search Angels group, but sadly discovered her mother was suffering from dementia and did not want to reconnect. “You don’t think you care, because you don’t even know this person, it hits you,” Azais said. “It was pretty emotional to hear those words. “If I met her, she probably wouldn’t know who I was,” Azais said. There is always hope, however. The weekend after learning about Azais, her aunt Judy reached out

Culpeper Times • May 3-9, 2018

and made a connection. While the rest of the family was hesitant and cautious, her aunt wanted to know more about her. “Once they saw pictures, of myself and my son (Mason), they were like ‘yeah, she’s ours,’” Azais said with a laugh. “That’s been over a year ago, I still haven’t spoke with my mom, but I still keep in contact with my aunt.” They plan to meet this summer in Canada. Azais can’t stress to her birth family enough that she’s not bitter or looking for anything - she just wants to know her history. “She really doesn’t owe me anything,” Azais said. “She already gave me life and she gave me a family that loves me.” By supporting the Culpeper Pregnancy Center, Azais is hoping to volunteer and to have an opportunity to maybe tell her story to women who are on the fence about adoption. Her adopted parents Judith and William Brian Mason, who divorced when she was in kindergarten, provided her with a loving upbringing and she’s forever grateful for that experience. “More women will want to come in and know their choices, when they recommend adoption most women’s response is ‘I could never do that to my child,’” Azais said. “I just don’t know if they’ve never known adopted people. Yes, there’s some bad stories out there but there’s some really good stories out there.” Azais knew early on she was adopted, and it was no secret in her adopted family. “When my parents adopted me, my grandmother was from Sicily and she spoke very broken English,” Azais recalled. “She called me ‘special’ one time. What she was saying was I was a gift from God. They were very lucky to have me.” It’s that attitude that Azais hopes to spread to women at the Culpeper Pregnancy Center and hopes Tuesday’s fundraiser will help support adoption at the center.

HOME & GARDEN Ruby-throated hummingbirds return to Virginia Ruby-throated hummingbirds have begun their return to Virginia for breeding season! The brightly colored males have been here since mid-April and have already established their breeding territory before the females arrive the first week of May. The Ruby-throated Hummingbird is the only species of hummingbird that breeds in eastern North America, and we are lucky to have them nesting in our neck of the woods. Once the females arrive from their migratory flight (which began in Mexico or Central America), they will start building tiny nests (approximately 2” across) from grasses, spider webs, and plant fibers. These nests are lined with down from dandelions or thistles, and camouflaged with lichen, moss, or dead leaves. Nests are usually built on top of a

slender branch in a deciduous tree, such as an oak, poplar, or hackberry. However, some birds have also been found nesting on loops of chain, wire, and extension cords. In Mid-May the female hummingbirds will lay 2 tiny white eggs. She incubates them for 10 – 14 days and the chicks leave the nest when they are 18-22 days old. Rubythroated hummingbirds can raise up to three broods each year. Their summer habitat includes deciduous woodlands, forest edges, meadows and nearby streams. They are also common in orchards, old fields, gardens, parks and even backyards. They remain close to the trees they nest in, so Ruby-throated hummingbirds have been known to take full advantage of human created garden habitats for feeding, shelter and nesting. Here are some recommendations to attracting these beautiful birds to your garden: • Dwarf trees, flowering shrubs (Rose of Sharon), and vines like the cardinal vine, trumpet vine and honeysuckle can all be used to create

an ideal tiered habitat from ground level to 10 feet or more. • Provide lots of space between plants to give hummingbirds enough room to hover and navigate from flower to flower. • Hummingbirds love water, especially if it’s moving. A gentle, continuous spray from a nozzle or a sprinkler hose is perfect for a bath on the fly. • Brightly-colored flowers that are tubular hold the most nectar, and are particularly attractive to hummingbirds. These include perennials such as bee balms, columbines, coral bells, cardinal flowers, daylilies, and lupines; biennials such as foxgloves and hollyhocks; and many annuals, including cleomes, impatiens, salvia and petunias. Hummingbirds do not have a keen sense of smell and rely on bright colors to find their food. They are particularly fond of red and are often observed investigating feeders with red parts, red plant labels, and even red clothes on a gardener. However,

do not use red dye in a hummingbird feeder; there is concern that it may harm the birds. Instead, use plain, clear sugar water (1 part white sugar mixed with 4 parts water). The birds love it! If your feeder does not have red on it, attach a red label or other item to attract them. In order to keep hummingbirds healthy, remember to change the water before it becomes cloudy or discolored and especially in hot weather to avoid fermentation. Hummingbirds also will eat and feed their young the small insects in your yard, such as mosquitoes, gnats, fruit flies, small bees, caterpillars, and aphids. So not only will you enjoy hours of entertainment by watching these fascinating creatures, you will also reap the benefits of all-natural pest control!

“Hamburger and shake for me, Grandpa. I love their shakes,” said the young tow-headed boy twirling around on his swivel stool at the counter. The date? Many years ago. The boy, me. The place was Gayheart Drugstore, which since became Frost Café, located in downtown Culpeper. Still the same great burgers and shakes today. Downtowns grow or become deserted, but they rarely remain the same. Many change with the generations and find a way to still thrive. Others stubbornly hold tight to “the old days” and slowly become little more than uninteresting names on a

map. Culpeper, especially its historic downtown, has found the secret to success throughout the decades and all its economic ups and downs: Honest shops with fairly priced products and customer service that exceeds expectations. Proprietors know customers by their first name and customers know the folks selling the products. This is the real charm of Culpeper — its people. One nonprofit stands on the bridge of trust bringing businesses and consumers together: The Better Business Bureau. For more than a century across North America the BBB has stood on that bridge between businesses and consumers. The BBB serving Central Virginia, established as a Virginia Bureau in 1954, focuses just as aggressively today as then on building trust and bridging

differences that might arise between businesses and consumers. To be an “Accredited Business” with the BBB is to show the community and all its consumers you’ve passed a standards based review which included meeting (and maintaining) 38 different business professionalism requirements. Culpeper County and Town have many BBB Accredited Businesses. When you see that BBB logo on the door of a business and on their web site, you can feel assured that business can be counted upon to do right by their customers, including hungry youngsters.

Rotator cuff repair surgery and what it entails 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. 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 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, 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 rotator-cuff 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 bonetendon 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, or hard and dead. 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.

CHURCH Dealing with the 'big A' FAITH IN THE COMMUNITY

It was a spring evening a few years ago as I was driving to someone’s house to make a home visit. As I came upon a particular town intersection I unfortunately failed to apply my breaks soon enough, and inadvertently tapped the stopped car ahead of me. Fearing that I had caused some damage, I parked my car at the next clearing hoping that the other driver would also pull in, but he did not. As I examined my own vehicle I realized that there was no visible trauma, so I continued on my way thinking that the incident was concluded. But I quickly realized that it had not. As I started my drive again on the town streets, I looked in my rearview mirror and noticed that the car I had bumped into was now closely following me. Whenever I sped up, it sped up.

Pastor Brad Hales

Whenever I turned, it turned. Knowing that there was an issue, I decided to park my car, ready to meet the expected “unhappy driver.” And was he ever unhappy. He bolted from his vehicle, yelling, screaming, and waving his hands in the air. He was filled with so much anger and rage that he literally threatened to “beat me up.” There was virtually no calming him. Others stopped to help, and when we explained that we were going to call the police, the distraught driver quickly jumped back into his automobile and sped away. Anger. It’s a human emotion that we all experience at one time or another. So many things can cause us to become upset. Maybe we can’t get our own way or we feel out of control. Maybe we’ve been used or violated. Maybe we see injustice or corruption. Various instances can incite our thoughts and actions. But when the anger causes us to “act out” in an inappropriate manner that not only affects us, but others as well. In Genesis 4, when Cain was visibly

upset that God approved of his brother’s offering rather than his own, the Lord warned him about his anger getting out hand and causing him to sin. Unfortunately, Cain wouldn’t listen, as he physically bludgeoned Abel to death with a rock. Ephesians 4:26 states, “In your anger do not sin. Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry. And in Ecclesiastes 7:9 it is written, “Be not quick in your spirit to become angry, for anger lodges in the heart of fools.” It seems like we live in a world today where people “erupt” so quickly that it can be a struggle for civility to be achieved. I remember one instance as a child when I was attending a high school basketball game. The contest quickly got out of hand as a riot ensued between the teams and the fans which flowed out of the bleachers. My father was the superintendent of the home school, so he waded through the may lay being smacked in the head, trying to get to the pa system to restore calm. Dealing with anger and hate is not an easy chore. But that’s exactly what we’re called to do. Whether it’s through resolve, a steady strength, a calming demeanor, diffusement, or even a sense of humor,

it is our jobs not to “loose it,” but to ratchet down the anger, and seek peace and reconciliation. Matthew 5:9, which is a part of the Beatitudes, the Sermon on the Mount states, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons/daughters of God. “ When we become frustrated at someone or a circumstance, it’s way too easy to let loose, no matter what the cost. Our unbridled anger won’t just hurt another, but will also personally affect our own body, mind and spirit. So instead of “lashing out” in an unhealthy manner, may we follow the words in Ephesians 4:31-32, “Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.” Brad Hales is the pastor of Reformation Lutheran Church, Culpeper, Virginia. As an ordained minister of the North American Lutheran Church for over 23 years, Hales is also an appointed member of the Culpeper Human Services Board. He is married with two children.

Tree Service/Firewood

Sheryl Gaye Desper Mrs. Sheryl Gaye Desper (born Campbell), of Marshall, VA, passed to the other side of the veil on Sunday, April 22, 2018 at the age of 63 after an extended and courageous battle with chronic lymphocytic leukemia and complications from chemotherapy. Sheryl was born to parents Paul Lowren Campbell and Sylvia Marie Cubbage on September 7, 1954 in Luray, VA. She grew up as the eldest of three children and graduated from high school in Seat Pleasant, MD. She married her neighborhood sweetheart on April 18, 1973 (45 years), and together they raised two children. Sheryl went to work after her children started school and she enjoyed working in customer service. She retired for medical reasons in 2004 from Northern Virginia Electric Cooperative in Manassas, VA. Sheryl had a beautiful smile and it was easy to have a conversation with her. Along with her tenacity, she was best known for her love and dedication to her family. She attended to the needs of her family, both immediate and extended, with motherly love. She was the one family turned to and counted on when in need. Her family often sought her opinions and knowledge and if she did not know it, she would look it up and read about it. Her family teased her about being a self taught doctor because of all the reading she did for her own numerous medical problems. Sheryl loved her pets and considered them part of the family. Her favorite breed of dog was the rottweiler. Sheryl is survived by her husband, Audie “Gary” Wayne Desper; her son, Gary Wayne Desper (Chantal Muncey Desper) of Westminster, MD; her daughter, Lisa Marie Evans (Mark Evans) of Culpeper, VA; her granddaughters, Sylvia Desper, Jocelyn Desper and Caroline Desper; her grandsons, Garrison Kent Desper and Charles Evans; her brother, Darrell Keith Campbell (Rhonda Campbell) of Luray, VA; her sister, Cynthia “Cindy” Dawn Rice (Mark Rice) of Virginia Beach, VA; five nieces and four nephews. She is preceded in death by her parents. A memorial service to celebrate Sheryl’s life will be held on Saturday, May 5, 2018 at Noon at Leake’s Chapel Church of the Brethren located at 2334 Honeyville Road, Stanley, VA 22851. Attendees are requested to wear something purple as that was Sheryl’s favorite color. Family and friends will gather for a meal in the church hall immediately following the service. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Sheryl’s name to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (, or the Humane Society where you live. Condolences may be sent to the family care of 43 North Court Street, Westminster, MD 21157. Sheryl’s cremains will be inurned at a later date in private in Shutterle Community Cemetery, Luck Stone Road, Churchville, VA.
