Kelsey's Big Give celebrates 10 years By Amy Wagner Contributing Writer Just after 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 4, over 200 people spilled out the doors of Culpeper United Methodist Church with a common mission to serve Christ and others in the community. Some were young and some were old but most were armed with pitchforks and shovels; wheelbarrows and gloves; rakes and saws; because everyone had a job to do on this tenth annual mission day of Kelsey’s Big Give. Kelsey Jean-Marie Orndorff was killed in a car accident ten years ago and last Saturday the large turnout of volunteers were honoring her love for mission work and serving others. Twenty-six teams of various numbers departed to 21 different project sites throughout the community to perform a plethora of tasks including garage door installation, sanding, gutter cleaning, hedge trimming, wood splitting, general yard work verifying flood

buckets. Many people that participated were repeat volunteers from previous years. OJ and Celia Faulk, and their two children, have volunteered for eight years. This year they helped take down and cut up four trees on the church property as well as weed control around the playground area. “It’s a good thing to do. It’s Kelsey’s legacy” said Celia. Saturday was also Darryl and Sharon Lam’s eighth year volunteering. “We do it because it’s more fun to work together,” said Sharon intimating that she has plenty to do at home, but she’d rather be around others. For those who wanted to help indoors, there was opportunity to prepare and serve breakfast and lunch to the volunteers; sew school bags and stuff with supplies; and crochet shawls. Nancie Williams, KBG project coordinator, said there were originally 28 project sites slated for this year, but they had to remove or delay some outdoor and painting proj-

Twenty six teams worked on projects for Kelsey's Big Give Aug. 4. ects due to the recent weather and moisture. Volunteers for KBG this year came from a wide variety of places including Gold’s Gym, a Culpeper Church of Latter Day Saints, a Catholic church in Warrenton, numerous Culpeper teachers and even a family from Pennsylvania. “We drove down Friday evening just for Kelsey’s Big Give,” said Sandi Labuda whose project site was the local Safe House. KBG was a bonus for their visit this time with their daughter who is an ESL teacher at Pearl Sample and attends CUMC. Labuda has never participated in KBG before but always wanted to. “What a great volunteer community you have,” said Labuda. “This church is always doing something for the community. We see it every time we come visit. Just to take care of our neighbors; it’s awesome,” she said adding that she attends the 9:29 service with her family when she visits. Bobby Shiffler, his wife and their six children volunteered for the

first time this year as well. They live in Madison but attend the Church of Latter Day Saints behind the Novant Health UVA Culpeper Medical Center. Shiffler and many other members from his church volunteered their time at several different project sites. “Our church just loves to help out the community. Many of us are doing several things around town today,” he said. Shiffler’s children worked alongside him cleaning out numerous garden beds at CUMC before taking a break for some playground time. His wife worked upstairs in the church with the sewing and crocheting projects. Many tired, dirty and hardworking volunteers started filtering back into the church parking lot at 1 p.m. for lunch though some groups remained at their sites further into the afternoon to complete projects. Standing aside and perusing all the exhausted, but seemingly satisfied, faces Pastor Randy Orndorff smiled and said, “We do this in memory of Kelsey and the love she had for missions.”

Culpeper juvenile arrested for planned attack at school A Culpeper juvenile was arrested Aug. 3 for threats against a Culpeper County Public School. On Friday, Aug. 3, School Resource Deputy Dana Martz-Dodson obtained a petition on a 13 year-old male for threats to kill or do bodily harm while on school premises. The Culpeper County Public Schools were made aware of the threat by a parent who observed a social media conversation where the juvenile confessed his plan to commit acts of violence while at school. The schools quickly contacted the Culpeper County Sheriff ’s Office. Subsequently, Deputy MartzDodson immediately began an investigation into the threats. She, along with other School Resource Officers and Deputies from the Culpeper County Sheriff ’s Office, executed a search warrant at the residence of the juvenile. During the search warrant, deputies recovered a switchblade knife, bow, and a pellet rifle. The juvenile had made statements that he intended to take revenge on an individual that he alleges had bullied him over the last several years, as well as to shoot “the deserving.” The juvenile intended to end the violent acts by committing suicide. The juvenile was detained and transported to a hearing in Culpeper Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court. “Culpeper School Personnel and School Resource Deputies have once again shown their tremendous bond and communication they have with the students and parents as they worked to prevent this potential tragedy. I can’t thank the schools enough for their continued cooperation and teamwork in keeping our schools safe," Culpeper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins.

Let's Get Healthy Culpeper program starts Aug. 19 at library


Lily Galvin (Editor's note: This is weekly series highlighting members of Culpeper's Youth Council. To join Culpeper Youth, go to to apply.) I've had the incredible opportunity to intern with the Culpeper Police Department for the past few weeks. Through the collaborative outreach of Culpeper Youth and our coordinator, Jamie Clancey, I was able to connect with Major Chris Settle and Lt. Jeff Dodson. Lt. Dodson developed a 4-week internship that has allowed me to explore the records department, crime analyst/criminal investigations, property/evidence, Culpeper E-911, and Patrol ride along. Being able to experience this level of on-the-job observation has provided me tremendous insight on the daily operations of our local police department and dispatch center. Being completely honest, my favorite are the ride-alongs (Hey Officer Cooper!). It's a different side to the community I live in and I can't appreciate enough our police officers and support staff who ensure our daily safety. THANK YOU to Major Chris Settle, Lt. Jeff Dodson, Patricia, Rebecca, Sharon and Officer Al Cooper for welcoming me at the CPD and allowing me to step into your shoes, if only briefly. Your influence and guidance has left an impression on me as I look to my future in the criminal justice field.

Culpeper Town PD forms bond with community ➤ National Night Out puts focus on Neighborhood Watch groups in town By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer Culpeper Town Police Department Officer John Bahl looked over his shoulder with a grin. “It’s OK if I get my uniform wet? Right?” he asked Major Chris Settle. “Go for it,” Settle with a laugh. Bahl climbed onto the water slide at Belle Court, children jostling for position to go down with the officer. In position, Bahl and the kids counted down and then slid hands in the air and smiles on their faces. The block party at Belle Court was one of several activities the Culpeper Town Police Department participated in as part of the 35th annual National Night Out. Culpeper Police Chief Chris Jenkins popped in at each event, shaking hands and greeting old friends. ➤ See Night Out, Page 23

Addo excited to lead Eastern View Dr. Felix Addo brings two decades of experience to Eastern View High School as its new principal. Addo started as the new EVHS principal in July, replacing the retiring E.G. Bradshaw. Addo comes from Stafford County where he served as assistant principal at Stafford County and North Stafford high schools. He’s married his wife works for North Stafford - and has three children. We recently had an opportunity to sit down with Dr. Addo and discuss his vision for EVHS going forward. CT: How did you get started in education? What drew you to education? Addo: I’ve been sharing this a lot with everyone I meet. It all started with a math degree and I was an athlete. Of course I wanted to coach football and soccer. The two sides kind of married together in terms of education and coaching. I started teaching high school math in Prince William County ➤ See Addo, Page 7


New Eastern View High School principal Felix Addo talks about his goals for the school during a recent interview.

BIZ BIO The People of Wellspring: Suzanne Amoruso, RD, CDE For Wellspring Health Services Dietitian Suzanne Amoruso, it’s all about helping patients take charge of their lives. “I love the saying ‘knowledge is power,’” Amoruso said. “As a dietitian, it’s a reminder that the more knowledge a patient has about their health conditions and medications, the more empowered they will be to manage their disease and have control over it.” As a member of the Wellspring team, Amoruso brings 25 years of experience in helping people understand how to make the healthy choices that can not only be life-changing, but life-saving. “It’s so rewarding to see people achieve their goals and feel better about themselves, whether it be weight loss or diabetes,” she said. “I’m glad and honored to be their educator to help them make lifestyle changes.” Amoruso has a particular interest in diabetes treatment, and is a certified diabetes educator and insulin pump trainer. “I chose the specialty of diabetes because I was interested in the endocrine system, particularly the pancreas and how insulin works in the body,” Amoruso said.  “Also, with obesity

rates continuing to grow in our country, I knew I could help a lot of people live healthier with type 2 diabetes.” A Culpeper-area resident for nearly two decades, Amoruso was attracted to Suzanne Amoruso, RD, CDE Wellspring because of the potential she sees for delivering a range of general and specialist care, all close by. “Wellspring has an amazing reputation in the Culpeper community,” Amoruso said. “We are growing rapidly and adding more specialties to make it convenient for our patients to see all their providers at one place.” And when patients see Amoruso, they are likely to walk away feeling that positive change really is possible. “I tell my patients with diabetes: ‘Don’t let diabetes control you—you can control your diabetes,’” Amoruso said. “The same thing is true of every patient I work with—I want them to know that when they have the right tools and knowledge they can live a healthy lifestyle.”

➤ Addo, from Page 6 and that was 21 years ago. I taught high school math at Potomac High School and Woodbridge High School. One of my principals saw something in me and guided me in terms of trying to build my leadership skills and eventually influenced me to get my additional education to get my administration certification. A little bit of a fast forward but I became an assistant principal at Stafford High School for 12 years and last year I was an assistant principal at North Stafford High School, which led me to this location.” CT: This is your first full time principal job, how daunting is that? Addo: This is my first time being responsible for everything. To be truthful it is exciting and at the same time there’s a little bit of anxiety. That’s coupled with going to a new district, every district operates differently. I have to get used to the way Culpeper does things, the way Eastern View does things. I have to get used to the culture and try to fit inasmuch as possible. I’ve found it’s a close knit community and everybody knows everybody. I love that about it.” CT: How important is it to meld athletics and after school programs with education to create a well-rounded student? Addo: That aspect of it is essential. It is what I call the ‘x-factor.’ When some of our kids are motivated by extra curricular activities and they use that in terms of attendance to school and actually doing well in school. Those extra curricular activities play a major role in teaching the hidden curriculum - responsibility, work ethic. CT: What is your teaching philosophy, how do you connect with the kids, how do you get through to them? How do you impart that upon your staff? Addo: My teaching philosophy is pretty simple. I believe that every child can be successful and succeed even at the highest level given a teacher that is passionate, a teacher that cares. In addition to that, given a multi-faceted support system in case they struggle. In that vein, we believe all kids can learn, but we need to put in front of them someone who is passionate and cares about them and will go above and beyond for the student. In turn, that’s what I’ve communicated that with my teachers. This year we are focused on increasing our rigor in the classroom, but we also have to be focused on our relationships and relevance. Those three components will go together to help meet the needs of each child in the building.” CT: You’re coming into a time when the bus schedules are being switched for high school and middle school. How has the school addressed that and do you expect everything to move smoothly. What’s been the response from the parents and the students? Addo: For my teachers, it’s an exciting time. They are excited about it. I think it’s boosted morale. That is one thing my predecessor (E.G. Bradshaw) was happy about. The way the bus schedule was done previously, he believed the teachers were kept here for a long period of time. He said I’m

coming in at a great time because now our teachers will be able to leave by 3 or 4 p.m. In terms of the parents, the parents I’ve talked to they welcome the opportunity. They are excited they can get home and get started on chores along with school work. I think it’s overdue, I think it’s great.”

CT: You’re just the third principal at Eastern View, is it exciting to get on at a ground floor of a school that is just celebrating its 10-year anniversary? Addo: I’m so excited. Last night I was at the athletic boosters meeting so I was able to meet a lot of parents. The love they have for this school, I’m so excited to be part of it. They have such high expectations for their kids to be successful. Not only in athletics, but also in academics. You can’t ask for anything more from the community. They’re willing to support the school in any way that they can.” CT: One of the focuses of the school district has been career and technical education, what are your thoughts on being help further that goal? Addo: I have a career and technical education background, I was previously part of the advisory committee in Stafford County. This is something I’m passionate about. We know we want to have our kids be college bound ready, at the same time one size doesn’t always fit all. Some of our kids will be ready to get into the workforce. In that aspect, we need to have that opportunity for all of our kids to have experience in wherever their interest may take them. Approving that aspect is wonderful. I’m so excited that the county and the superintendent are headed in that direction, to build a site for career and technical education and I’m here to help in any way I can.” CT: What’s the interaction been like with the students? Have you met with student advisory groups? Addo: I’ve met with quite a few students. I’ve had conversations with the whole football team, the band, the volleyball team, the field hockey team. I’ve met with the senior class officers and the SCA officers in a meeting that lasted about three hours. It was great, it was beneficial to hear their side especially the senior class officers and how they want their senior year to be remembered. They are submitting a plan for me to decide on raising the level because they want this to be a memorable year for them. I want to entertain that within reason. CT: Were you impressed by the level of engagement by the student body? Addo: It’s amazing. As soon as I asked for a meeting with the senior class officers, I imagined there would be three or four folks show up - we had about 15. The commitment was wonderful. I asked them to show up for the first day of teachers returning, they were here bright and early in the morning. I’m looking forward to working with them. CT: What’s been your impressions of Culpeper? How have you been received by the community so far? Addo: With love and open arms, to tell you the truth. I haven’t met one person yet that has not smiled and had a chat.”

HOME & GARDEN Just what the landscaper ordered OUTDOOR OUTLOOK Donald Sherbeyn

Vacations with the family and cook outs with friends were on my list of things to do as summer began. I was able to spend a few days at the beach with the family and have many memorable nights and laughs with friends on the

deck and patio. We played soccer in the lawn with the kids and the dogs and enjoyed the flowers and shrubs as each took their turn showing off the beauty of nature. So for this, my summer was a success. To be honest I am not ready for summer to be over. My landscape however, is ready for summer to be over. Heavy rain and extended dry

periods created all kinds of new issues. Browned lawn, stressed out shrubbery, and a few young decorative trees yelling for some help. Now if you know me or have been reading my articles then you know I am not a fan of spending endless hours in the landscape. My take on landscaping is to know your plants and what they need, ensure they have it and then let them take care of themselves as much as possible. With my work week being 80 hours long caring for clients landscapes or designing and building new space for families to make memories. I don't have a lot of time to spend caring for my own landscape so I have to work smart. Understanding what is necessary care and what is excessive care, knowing what we can do with each season to ensure our landscapes survive and thrive with limited time and expense is an important part of

landscape management. It is important to me because I do not have the time or money to waste on my landscape and it is important to our clients because we do not want to waste their time or money either. Here are a few things you can do as August begins to wind down to ensure you too can have a beautiful lawn and landscape with minimal care and maintenance next season. For your lawn: First and always before you start throwing chemicals at a lawn get your soil test done. Results will be different than it was in the spring for one of two reasons, either A: you have been caring for your lawn and as a result things are doing better meaning you won't need to spend as much time, money or energy this new season or B: you did not get out in the lawn this year and you may need more than you did this past

spring, either way don't shoot from the hip the cost of a soil test and the time it takes to get one is well worth it and will pay you back. Once you get that test apply fertilizer and lime as directed to give your lawn the best root system it can get before going into winter. If the summer heat or rain has caused bald spots in the lawn I recommend aerating heavily these spots, installing new seed, and using a good compost full of lots of organic matter to cover with 1" of new material. The areas of the lawn that still look good should also be aerated and new seed installed at a rate of 5-8 lbs per 1000 square foot. Be sure you are not using any weed prevention fertilizer this time of year. Pre emergent fertilizers kill weed seed, they can do the same thing to your new grass seed.

Culpeper Times • August 9-15, 2018

For your beds: I am a huge fan of jobes fertilizer spikes. There are different spikes for different plants, each designed with the individual needs of the plant in mind. These spikes extend the release time of fertilizer to aid in proper root growth and healthy foliage. Worm castings are loaded with micro nutrients and healthy fungi that will aid in the generation of fibrous root growth as well as feed your plant and trees. While I am not a fan of watering landscapes all the time remember there is still a few weeks of warm weather left so keep an eye on your shrubs if they show drought droop a healthy drink of water might be just what the Landscaper Ordered. Most of all enjoy your time in your gardens and make memories. Thought of the month; "Each day you wake, you wake to a day that belongs to you. Own It!!"

How butterflies mate

During the few dry spells we’ve been having, especially warm, sunny ones, more butterflies have been showing up around my gardens. I’ve spotted several pairs mating, which is the sole purpose of the short adult phase of a butterfly’s life cycle. In most species, females have less than a week to find a mate, copulate, search for host plants and lay their eggs on them. From a distance, a male butterfly finds a female by spotting ultraviolet patterns on the latter’s wings, but the males can get overeager, as the British website Learn About Butterflies explains: “During the initial ‘approach’ phase of mate location males will chase after almost any small moving object, including falling leaves, bees and butterflies of any species and either sex.” The response of whatever the male is pursuing is key to the next phase in courtship, when pheromones come into play. These chemicals

Pam Owen

give butterflies two key pieces of information that determine whether they will proceed with mating: whether they differ in gender but of the same species. If what the male is pursuing fits those criteria, and the female is receptive, courtship begins. If a male discovers he’s pursuing another male of the same species, he usually battles his competitor for access to females. If the object of the male’s pursuit doesn’t fit into either scenario, the male continues his search for a mate. For some species, according to Learn About Butterflies, exposing a female to male pheromones is all it takes for the pair to copulate immediately. Other species require a more complex courtship ritual that can include “a protracted series of visual, tactile or olfactory stimuli and responses” before copulation. For example, courting spicebush swallowtail couples fly slowly together for a while, the male above the female, according to “Butterflies of the East Coast: An observer’s guide,” by Rick Cech and Guy Tudor. Lepidoptera genitals are among the most complex in the animal kingdom, with special claspers unique

to each species that fit together like a lock (the female’s genitalia) and key (the male’s). This helps prevent two separate species from mating with each other, although hybridization, especially in closely related species, is known to occur. During mating, the male butterfly, clasped to the female, inserts a spermatophore (sperm packet) into her ostium bursa (vaginal groove), a pouch at the end of her abdomen that is the terminal point of the tube through which she lays her eggs. As each egg passes down the tube during oviposition (egg laying), it is fertilized by the sperm. Butterflies often fly while hooked together this way, which Cech and Tudor refer to as “courtship flight,” but the term seems misleading, since the pair seem beyond courtship at that point. To see some amazing footage of butterflies competing, courting and mating, check out the “Sex, Lies and Butterflies” episode of the PBS series “Nature” ( Once the female is ready to lay her eggs, she looks for certain native plants that serve as hosts for the caterpillars that will hatch out. ➤ See Wild, Page 24

➤ Handyman, from Page 10 of charge. On Tuesday afternoon, he and his employee John Atkinson worked in the sweltering heat to sand down the original tin roof and paint it with a high temperature paint. Lucey stood, looking up, tears welling her eyes. “It means the world, I was in tears,” Lucey said of her thoughts when Cornell said he would do the job for free. “I was in shock.” She bought the home on Halls Road in 2005 and is selling it for $108,000 through Trish Gay at Select Realty. The appraiser wouldn’t even look at it until the roof was fixed, but now she said he’ll be out on Thursday to look it over. Cornell said giving back is at the heart of what he does. “The biggest thing about my company is that other people are here for the money, I”m not, I’m here to help my community,” Cornell said. Operating for just a little over nine months, Cornell said that he tries to help people with at least four gratis jobs a month. “The more people I can help the better,” Cornell said. “I know there’s a lot of people around here that don’t have the money or the time to do any renovations and then their house just withers

away.” He does a little bit of everything, ranging from carpentry, masonry, plumbing, electrical, drywall, painting, landscaping, resurfacing, all the way to countertops. Lucey said without Cornell, she wasn’t sure what she would have done. “It’s just kind of the way I was raised,” Cornell said. “If you give somebody a helping hand it gives them more opportunities to do better.” Atkinson said that he’s been in tough spots, so it means a lot to work with someone who recognizes it and tries to help. “It’s a point of pride,” Atkinson said. “Especially in this economy, everyone falls on hard times. Everytime you’re in a hard spot, it’s that one little thing that will help you get to the next step. We may not be that one little, but if we can help contribute then that’s fantastic.”

Home prices continue to trend up in region Contributed report As the spring market concludes in the Greater Piedmont Region, home prices remain on an upward trend despite a slowdown in sales relative to last year. The median sales price has been consistently rising now for over 6 years, evidence of a tight supply of active listings, and continued strong buyer demand in the market. Summary highlights from the market data this quarter include: Sold dollar volume declined by 3.7% from a year ago, the first drop since the end of 2016.

Sales: After more than 3 years of consistent quarter-over-quarter growth at the region level, sales declined in the Greater Piedmont Region relative to this time last year. There were 813 sales in the 2nd quarter of 2018 region-wide, down 5.2% from the 2nd quarter of 2017, a drop of 45 sales. Similar trends occurred at the county-level: There were 226 sales in Culpeper County in the 2nd quarter, a modest

1.7% drop from last year, a decline of 4 sales. Home Prices: While the number of home sales declined slightly this quarter, sales prices continue to rise across most of the Greater Piedmont Region, a reflection of upward pressure caused by the historically low inventory of active listings. The average sales price in the region in the 2nd quarter was $366,829 up 1.6% from this time last year, a gain of nearly $6,000. At $320,000 the median sales price in the region also rose, climbing 4.9% from the 2nd quarter of 2017, a gain of $15,000.

FILM • “Now, Voyager” (Warner Bros., 1942) A resonant woman's picture, "Now, Voyager" features Bette Davis as Charlotte Vale, a dowdy spinster terrorized by her possessive mother (Gladys Cooper) and on the verge of a nervous breakdown. While undergoing treatment at a sanatorium, a caring psychiatrist (played by Clause Rains) suggests that Charlotte go on a cruise, where she finds love with Jerry Durrance (Paul Henreid). The compassionate therapy and later improbable romance transforms her into a confident, independent woman. "Now, Voyager” was Bette Davis' biggest box office hit of the '40s.

The film won an Oscar for Costume Design, and Winona Ryder was nominated in the supporting acting category for her nuanced performance as the charming but passive May.

As Merrick tries to make amends to the man's widow, Helen (Irene Dunne), his long journey from selfish cad to compassionate savior becomes a magnificent obsession. John M. Stahl directed this first film adaptation of Lloyd C. Douglas’ 1929 best-selling novel that had been something of a phenomenon for its message of enriching one's own life through philanthropy and acts of compassion done in secret. Later remade by Douglas Sirk and starring Rock Hudson and Jane Wyman, this romantic drama was a big hit that catapulted Taylor, up until then a light leading man, to stardom. 35mm archival print, 112 min.

When MTV changed the world THE MARSHALL PLAN

In the early 1980s the future emanated from a small television Marshall Conner in the upstairs room of my grandparent’s home in New Jersey and it was riveting, addicting and slightly dangerous. Somewhere around midnight I found a show — I think it was called Rock World that blended live rock performances with early forms of the music video. It featured bands like Blondie, Boomtown Rats, The Cars, The Police and The Ramones. The term music video evolved in front of my eyes. The combination of music, theatrics, visual art and marketing were captivating. Things were changing for me too in 1981 — my hormone addled brain and the rest of me was packing my possessions for military school. A year earlier I had discovered youthful rebellion, metal, girls and the joys of delinquency. Music Video Television (MTV)

debuted just after midnight in the summer of 1981. It hurts to say that it was 37 years ago. It was groundbreaking, visually dynamic and it was on 24-hours a day. I quickly discovered that if I watched it long enough, I might see a favorite band. My music education occurred during the hundreds of “other” videos that were rapidly expanding the borders of my musical tastes. We had a satellite dish at military school where I could watch MTV. We all watched it regularly on the weekends and whenever else we could find a television. The guitars, ladies and oddly directed videos were perfectly suited to our brains. One of the great benefits of my five-years at Fishburne Military School was the diversity it brought to my life. We had cadets of all colors, many nationalities, economic backgrounds and many tastes in music. At school I heard many genres of music and MTV added even more to the mix. I smile when I think about a spring break when I first watched Prince perform “Little Red Corvette.” The girls in the neighborhood went wild. We weren’t exactly sure what Prince was


I went to a restaurant recently and got a drink with no straw. I was informed by the waitress that they no longer provided straws unless they were asked for. Apparently, the big problem in the world was drinking straws. I had no idea. I saw the news reports two weeks later reporting that straws were damaging sea turtles and was responsible for clogging landfills. Plastic straws were the new weapons of mass destruction. These fully-automatic assault straws were a crisis that had to be dealt with immediately. Seriously? This is an issue? When I was a kid, I remember scientists claiming that we would be buried by our garbage by the year 2000, that we produced so much trash that we would never be able to handle it. I’m


sure conservation has helped, but I fear that the children of those scientists are now raising false alarm over, of all things, plastic drinking straws. As it turns out, the mainstream media (ABC, NBC, CNN, et. al.) reported that 500 million plastic straws ended up in landfills per day. Of course what they all neglected to say (or correct) is that this figure was calculated by a nine year old off of a survey he did as a class project. I am not making this up. As it turns out, it was as valid as their presidential election polls, and just as fictitious. Starbucks, in a fit of political correctness, tossed their straws in favor of sipper-cup-like lids. Of course these lids use as much if not more plastic than a straw. They are recyclable, but so are plastic straws. In other words, Starbucks is not helping the environment one bit. They are simply creating the illusion of helping the environment while making you look like a three-year old when you drink your Frappuccino. I saw one news report that asked,

singing and doing splits about —but we knew it was damn cool. This process continued. Some bands were amazing, others funny, some shocking and others were bad. Throughout the 1980s we bought the tapes, watched MTV and attended concerts. We enjoyed a greater variety of music each year. Where else could a kid trapped in military school see a video by Men at Work, a band from Australia? Back at my parents’ home in thenrural Stafford we didn't have cable, so I had to be a bit more creative. My little brothers and I made use of VCR technology. We spent many a night recording our favorite music videos in the family basement. Most of our videos were recorded directly from television shows like Music Video Connection, talk shows, Friday Night Videos and even the occasional use of a hand-held video camera placed in front of the TV. In the cultural tsunami of MTV things began to change — a musical artist had to have visual appeal. Musical talent was not the only mandatory ingredient for the video star. Television shows and films also reflected the influence of MTV. A great example was the stylistic appeal of Miami Vice. "Why not go to paper straws?" The answer was we couldn't do that because paper comes from trees and that would be bad for the environment. In other words, the best way to save the planet right now is to ban plastic straws. In my lifetime I have endured government imposed conservation, and hated it each time. Low-flush toilets and florescent light bulbs, and government mandated gas containers are on my list of crap I have had to endure without anyone asking me. Granted, this pseudocrisis of plastic straws is not driven by the government, but it rankles me the same. It is someone or some entity imposing their desire and will on me, without my consent. It is, at its core, against the American way. A few things are beyond disturbing about this. One, CEO's and companies are making decisions based on pressure from lobby groups based on a nine-yearold's data. Shareholders should boot these morons before they do some real damage. Two, the media running with this story and deliberately inflating it only confirms their bias, desire to manipulate us all, and solidifies their well-earned title of "Fake news." Three,

There were political shifts too. MTV and its featured artists helped crumble the Berlin Wall, it brought awareness to South African apartheid and it urged young people to feed the hungry in Africa. The channel also encouraged environmentalism and urged young people to vote. MTV also had its critics who questioned its moral compass, materialism and time-wasting power. It was the favorite target of cultural critics. MTV was grumbled about by parents much like smartphones are today. The once hot debates on MTV’s cultural impact seem dated. MTV introduced us to reality television and promptly stopped showing music videos. In a short time, MTV was rapidly replaced by the advent of computers and smartphones. It has never recovered… technology killed the video channel. YouTube is now the most favored platform for music video fans to find their favorites past and present. The late great Prince once said, “At one time, MTV was hip and suddenly it all became outdated.” Do you still enjoy watching music videos? this is all about power, the power of groups to simply make us change. It is not very different than people suddenly demanding to remove Confederate war memorials. It is someone imposing their social/political/environmental views on the rest of us without our agreement. Finally, our forefathers went nuts over a less than 2% hike in the tea tax and launched the Boston Tea Party. Imagine how they would react to a faceless group of conservationists inflicting their will on them? Imagine if you worked at a company making straws and learned that in a matter of a few months, you were going to get laid off because some hempwearing, tree-hugging, do-gooder cost you your job. There are always unintended consequences of these kinds of political campaigns…and don't fool yourself, politics is behind this. I will continue to request straws when I eat out. I do this because I like straws and now, I do it because I'm being told I shouldn't. When restaurants stop providing them, I will stop eating there - plain and simple. I refuse to have someone inflict change on me without my input and will respond with my dollars.

Behind the Photo – The Road to Guardianship Capture the imagination of the audience. Draw them in. Katherine Charapich Lead them thru. Take them all the way to the end. The encouragement espoused in journalism class does not necessarily carry over to the drafting of motions presented in a court of law. However, with the petition being reduced to mere pages I want to bring to life for the court the conditions in which the respondent lives, her inability to make sound decisions for herself, the respondent’s denial of her deteriorating health and need for medical care, and the efforts of loving family members to help the respondent maintain her quality of life. Reading over the timeline documenting a point years ago when signs of behavioral changes first manifested, and detailing the progressive deterioration of cognitive abilities cuts to the deepest of emotions. There seems to be no magic remedy for cognitive challenges. Accompanying the timeline are photographs. The initial pictures depict a beautiful woman in what may have been just before the onset of illness. The same beginning shows a lovely brick, colonial-style home, the kind that is timeless – welcoming front porch, elaborate wood mouldings inside, and adorned with framed pictures and antiques. One can picture the respondent creating such beauty and raising a family within the safe walls of the home. The photographs that follow, confirm the digression represented in the timeline. The exterior of the house is in disrepair and the gardens look like overgrown fields. The interior shows a lack of care - thick cobwebs on windowsills, extensive remnants of food and drink, and rooms and hallways filled with piles of articles like clothing and boxes – some impassable and a few with narrow pathways from points A and B. The most heart wrenching photograph is that which depicts the respondent sitting in an armchair, the one clear spot in the room amidst chaotic piles – a blank and


unregistering look on a face that once was so vibrant. The present challenge is to help this precious human being who has done so much for so many and who now cannot care even for herself. Though the environment in disarray appears to have no effect, she does not seem to recognize her own limitations and does not think she needs help. Help is precisely what is essential. When an individual is in need of assistance to maintain her quality of life, the court prefers the least restrictive means, such as a power of attorney and advance medical directive. However, when an individual does not have these estate planning documents in place giving agency authority to another to make decisions on behalf of the individual, and does not have the cognitive ability to grant agency, the tool that the Code of Virginia (the Code) makes available to any person who wants to help an incapacitated adult is that of seeking guardianship of the individual. In §64.2-2000 of the Code the term guardian is defined as, “a person appointed by the court who is responsible for the personal affairs of an incapacitated person, including responsibility for making decisions regarding the person's support, care, health, safety, habilitation, education, therapeutic treatment, and, if not inconsistent with an order of involuntary admission, residence.” As circumstances change within families, as hard as it is to accept the reality, there are times when there are role reversals and the children step into a type of parental role as the parent now needs to be cared for. Prior to taking action, families may go through cycles of denial – “Mom thinks the cashiers at the grocery store are trying to take all of her money. I think she is just tired and overwhelmed.” “Did you notice that Dad did not seem to recognize me yesterday? Maybe he had a lot on his mind.” “I know that Mom forgets to eat; however, I think that she is fine. I will just keep cooking her favorite food for her.” Often, adult siblings will combine efforts to care for an adult parent in need. However, escalating dependency may occur, and the challenge is identifying if anyone other than the adult parent has the legal authority to make decisions for the adult parent. The determinative point is

whether the person is incapacitated. Thankfully, when ascertaining the presence of incapacitation, the Code sets the bar fairly high and the evidence must be clear and convincing. There are seemingly innumerable domestic situations in which an adult child would not make the same decision as the parent. For example, making poor monetary decisions such as giving a large sum of money to a relative does not necessarily mean one does not fully comprehend such an action, as well as that action’s ramifications. Having rooms filled with clutter, even to the point of being labeled a “hoarder” does not mean one is incapacitated. Neither does refusing to take medications, declining financial assistance, or becoming reclusive. When concerned family or friends begin to notice a combination of challenges faced by a loved one, such as: denial of a medical diagnosis, discounting poor living conditions, acts of ignoring financial commitments, not seeking medical treatment when such action is imperative to one’s health, inability to understand one’s surroundings in a manner that warrants the assistance from others, a susceptibility to exploitation (like scams), and a victim of neglect without the wherewithal to change one’s circumstances – seeking legal counsel is wise. In §64.2000 of the Code, an "incapacitated person means an adult who has been found by a court to be incapable of receiving and evaluating information effectively or responding to people, events, or environments to such an extent that the individual lacks the capacity to (i) meet the essential requirements for his health, care, safety, or therapeutic needs without the assistance or protection of a guardian or (ii) manage property or financial affairs or provide for his support . . .” As harsh as it may seem to have the court deem a loved one as incapacitated, an Order for Appointment of Guardian is a tool that can used as a protective measure for a person who is truly in a position of not being able to interpret her environment and is placing herself in harm’s way.

KC Club offered for middle school students ➤ New school schedules necessitate need for after school program at FTB, CMS By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer With school starting in less than a week, many parents are asking the question “what am I going to do with my middle schooler?” This year, Culpeper County Public School changed its schedule so high school and middle school students will start the day at 7:45 a.m. with dismissal at 2:15 p.m. That earlier time leaving school has caused some parents concern about where their children will go - reluctant to have their preteen staying at home alone. Kid Central has it covered. According to Rachel Palmer, Kid Central program manager, the organization known for after school programs at elementary schools will now offer KC Club

for middle school students at both Floyd T. Binns and Culpeper Middle School. “We’ve always talked about having the idea of having middle school but never pursued it,” Palmer said. “When the times changed and we realized the middle school students would get out so early, we decided to start the after school club. Dr. (Anthony) Brads (CCPS Superintendent) was really excited and they’ve been really onboard with doing this.” Palmer points out that middle school students could attend Kid Central after school care in the past, but they had to get on a bus and travel to one of the elementary schools. “The kids are very excited,” Palmer said. “They’re very excited to have an after school program with a club feel to it. They’re very excited to stay in their own school with students their own age.” Palmer said that the KC Club will have more of an older feel and not be positioned as a daycare. It will be an opportunity to middle schoolers to interact with their peers in a controlled setting.

Various programs will be offered, such as - Fast and Curious (STEM Club), Art-Attack (Arts Club), Homework Time, Healthy Kids (Fitness Club) and Walkie Talkies (Social Club). The club will start at 2:15, right after school ends and students will be able to stay until 6:30 p.m. Palmer said she heard from a lot of parents that were OK with their middle school-age child being dropped off under the previous schedule because the child

wouldn’t arrive home until 4 p.m. or later - meaning they were home alone for less than an hour. Under the new schedule, that time increase made many parents feel uncomfortable. “From the parents I’ve spoken with, they’ve been really grateful we’re going to offer this because they were concerned about the kids being home alone for that amount of time,” Palmer said. Palmer said Kid Central offers competitive rates and also have a pay by the day option, so parents only pay for the days their child attends. They’ve hired more staff to help with the after school program, growing to more than 100. “We’re actually quite a big employer in the county and I’m not sure many people realize that,” Palmer said. As of Monday, more than 20 children are already registered for the program and Palmer expects that number to grow as the reality of school starting creeps closer.

➤ Cheese, from Page 4 “This night just exemplifies what we’re all about, our relationship to our community,” Jenkins said. Culpeper has 30 watch groups total - 24 neighborhood groups and six business watch groups. Not every watch group hosted a party - some participated in “Lights On Means Lights Out For Crime.” Even in those neighborhoods, Culpeper police officers made their presence felt - biking through or walking through on foot. “I can remember the days when it was a few neighborhoods that turned their lights on at night,” Jenkins said. “Now to see the energy that the community has, these are their neighborhoods, we’re helping facilitate what they want. It’s a partnership and it’s a win-win for everybody.” Major Chris Settle said it was a “all hands on deck” mentality on Tuesday evening - as each available officer stopped in at a neighborhood watch party to partake in the fun and food. At Pelham’s Reach, Settle joked with friends and helped young kids get their picture taken for the

child ID. National Night Out is one of their favorite nights as officers, he said, as the force tries to one up each other in terms of interaction. “We probably can’t put into words the true value of it,” Settle said. “Over the years it’s paid so many dividends to us. The trust value can’t be expressed enough.” The interaction the officers have at the neighborhood watches may be the only time that a resident has contact with an officer. The ability to make connections ahead of time and have citizens place a name and a face with a badge number is invaluable. Children, in particular, loved meeting the officers and McGruff, who rode along with Lt. Jeff Dodson to watch parties. At Belle Court, the kids ran up to get McGruff ’s autograph. “This program has so many different benefits,” Settle said. “For the youth this program presents law enforcement is there to help them and to serve as a role model and hopefully will be there in their time of need.” Settle said that Culpeper is unique, in that it still has that small town feel while nearing 20,000 residents in town.

ing trust on nights like National Night Out is like putting capital into the bank, he said. Community policing is a way of life in Culpeper, not just a buzzword. That was evident at Kings Manor, where the neighborhood watch hosted their first meeting. It had the feel a family get together, so much so that Officer Jacob Neal’s wife sat along with residents talking about the recent wet weather Culpeper has experienced. Wilma Murphy, a resident of Kings Manor, said having a neighborhood watch program just made sense for the new community. “Everybody watches out for each other,” she said. “We check on everyone to make sure they’re OK. It’s nice to see that police car cruise by. It’s a great feeling to kyou you can call on them for everything.” The watch program is growing in Culpeper, Settle said. He remembers 20 years ago when there were just three or four watch groups in Culpeper. Now, they are talking about adding more each year and adding a school watch program. “The whole concept is for neighbors to know neighbors,” Settle said.

➤ Wild, from Page 8

This terminology can get complicated, since more than one generation of the same species can be flying at one time. The handy “Northern Virginia Butterflies and Skippers: A Field Guide,” by Robert R. Blakney, lists the number and times of flights of our local butterflies. Species vary in when they reach sexual maturity as adults. Some take only a few days, while others take longer. The adult monarch butterfly, known for its long fall migration to Mexico to spend the winter, delays its sexual maturity for nine months. The species breeds April through November, with the generation that emerges in August in the northern United States and Canada going into adult “diapause,” stopping maturation of their reproduction organs until after they overwinter. This enables them to instead put the energy they consume through nectaring into extending their life expectancy sufficiently to fly to Mexico, overwinter there, and fly north again in the spring to breed. Because of their longevity, this generation of monarchs is known as the “Methuselah generation.” © 2018 Pam Owen

Some butterflies have several host species, others only one or a few. For example, spicebush swallowtails favor spicebush but also will lay their eggs on sassafras, both of which are in the Lauraceae (laurel) plant family. According to the Butterflies And Moths website (, spicebush swallowtails may also use two other forest species in the laurel family, camphor and redbay, as well as tulip tree and sweetbay, in the magnolia family, and prickly ash, in the citrus family. The preferences of butterflies for native plants as hosts rather than nonnative is why planting native species is so important, especially since most native songbirds use butterfly and other larvae to feed their young. Most eggs are laid separate from each other but often on the same host plant. After hatching, larvae eat and go through several stages of growth (instars). When ready, they make a cocoon (chrysalis), emerging from it as adults either during the breeding season or overwintering in this stage. Depending on the species, butterflies can have several generations (broods) during the breeding season. Each brood flies looking for mates at the same time during the breeding season, so broods are also often referred to as “flights.”

➤ Zann, from Page 15 effort to undo the sitting regime in Russia. Though not the best of buddies to hang out with, describing them as Nihilistic- with no intrinsic value placed on a meaningful lifemay have been L.P.’s after-the -fact reflection based more accurately on his state of mind while writing the missive in Culpeper. Ok, so we know Czar Alexander II was indeed assassinated and most likely L.P. was in the vicinity and feeling very guilty. So far, that’s it! I have not been able to discover an Ivan Winarski or a Bonaparte family member whose parents lived in Scotland and who served in the navy and/or who severely wounded another in a duel. Hmmm? I wonder whose honor was at stake to prompt a duel. Last week’s column mentioned L.P.’s opening salvo to end his miserable life, when in fact, the entire letter states that intention over and over again. His unhappiness, guilt or and passion radiated from every sentence. Moving forward, I have searched immigration and death records and have come up empty-handed. It isn’t that they conclusively do not exist but more importantly, it is unclear


what name was he using while in Culpeper? I doubt it was the eight names constituting his signature at the close of the letter. Much of historical research is a methodical series of hypotheses. I tried Lewis Philippe, but thus far it has proven fruitless. And Lewis, really? The text is smudged giving the appearance of being erased and replaced; certainly only conjecture, but possibly he wrote Louis and then altered it. Another question: how did the letter get to the courthouse and in the bucket of arrest warrants? There is no date, no postmark or postage. Safe to say it was not mailed? Was it handed to a law enforcement officer? Sorry, but my gut says, “no.” Could they have found the note on the body? Was there an investigation? Was there a newspaper article (not yet to be seen in Culpeper’s archives). Did he actually end his life here in Culpeper? Until next week, be well.

How to make cheese 'grate' JEFFERY MITCHELL

If your household is like mine, it’s likely that there are two sides of your box cheese grater that are never used. No shame in that - there’s tradition of what to do with each cheese on a grater. For instance, block cheeses like mozzarella, colby, jack cheeses - these go to the large grating holes right? Parmesanreggiano uses the small holes. Then the other two side of the slicer -we don’t worry about. Yes, a neat and orderly place for everything. Moreover, there are cheeses that you likely don’t think of grating. I mean, why would you grate a hard cheese like aged Gouda that’s easier eaten in nuggets? Nuggets chunked off with a knife is a method so proper there’s even a cheese knife for just that function. All in all, a box cheese grater does not seem like it needed explaining. I mean, like you, I have used one several times and, until recently, thought of it as a rather benign process. So when I was recently seated with a group of cheesemongers for a meet the cheesemaker session, I was somewhat stunned to learn it was simultaneously a class on how to use that same ubiquitous box cheese grater. I refrained from excusing myself. Turns out that the same cheese can taste different depending on which side of the grater you use. Dutch Cheesemaker, Betty Kostner, recently schooled me and a (somewhat reluctant) group of cheesemongers on cheese grating using just one cheese - her delicious aged L’Muse Gouda. The cheese is worth the price of admission ,but it was hard to see where she was going with this. Four plates - each with her cheese grated from one of the graters four sides. As it began I still wondered, is this for real? The first grated option was “snow” (or the parmesan - reggiano “setting”) from the box cheese grater. Tall fluffy mounds of cheese that could never be as satisfying as a chunk of the same - or so I thought.

Encouraged to smell and taste it (snow shaved gouda) - the cheese that I knew well presented softer aromas and silky textures. Entranced with tasting experience, Betty then led us to a phyllo dough recipe for the same. Cooked Phyllo with butter, peeled tomatoes,balsamic vinegar and spices are topped with the finely shaved cheese. Good ,but the wow factor? Pairing with warm beef broth in a wine glass. Yeah - did not see that coming. It was like an elevated grilled cheese and tomato soup with each item highlighted and called out on the palate like tiny floating angels with trumpets heralding your next bite and sip. We were “all in” to the class at this point. This experiment continued through each of the grater’s four sides. Each time we tasted her one cheese ….well, it tasted different. Each grating level changes the flavors, intensity and texture of the cheese. The largest (final) grating was made with the the scary “I want to cut you” side of the grater. You know, the one with the two cuts, sharp edge and gaping opening saying this may require stitches? For obvious reasons, I have avoided that one side favoring less intimidating tools. Even my mandolin has a hand guard. So that said, now ,I have reason to use that dangerous side - Truffled potatoes with shaved Gouda. Yes, Perhaps Betty was saving the best for last. She already had us salivating as she softly spoke and walked us through a recipe that incorporated peeled, Yukon Gold potatoes cooked in cast iron cooked, tarragon vinegar, scallions , truffles and yes, her L’ Muse shaved Gouda. So after this learning on how to use a box grater what I am really hoping for is a dinner invite to the Kostner’s home. Why ? I am betting that all of their meals are …wait for it - grate.
