LOCAL NEWS Cyclones win 2018 Cannonball Classic in opener By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer This wasn’t your older brother’s Cyclones. Normally known for their high-octane offense and big plays, Eastern View High School imposed their will on Culpeper County High School in a 37-0 victory in the Cannonball Classic Friday evening. The Cyclones (1-0) controlled the line of scrimmage, time of possession and used their physicality to wear down the Blue Devils (01) and cause CCHS to make costly mistakes. Indicative of Eastern View’s new look offense was a double tight end set they ran with defensive stalwart Zach Brown. Lining up with two tight ends, the Cyclones ran roughshod over the Blue Devils. “I was happy with how physical we were upfront,” EVHS head coach Greg Hatfield said. “I was happy with how physical our defense was and how we ran to the football. We came out in sets we normally don’t run and we thought we could do some things and gain some advantages on the line of scrimmage that way and I thought our kids did a great job.” Eastern View’s new smash mouth football style was on display on their very first drive, as they started with excellent field position and needed just six plays to score on a 11-yard touchdown run by quarterback Matt Lowry. After the game, Lowry praised his offensive lineman for opening holes that assistant coach Carl “Adams could run through.” The double tight end set was a big reason for that success early on. “It’s just something different I don’t think anyone here expected

us to run,” Lowry said. “I think we ran it successfully.” For years, EVHS has been known as the spread offense team, and while they showed that traditional look at times, it was the power formation that impressed the most. “We haven’t been double tight very much,” Hatfield said. “That’s kind of something we have kept in our hip pocket. Up front we did a great job, Trey Holmes did an excellent job of running the ball.” Holmes gave the Cyclones a 14-0 lead with 9:44 to play in the first half as he scored from a yard out, this coming after the Blue Devils’ first drive fizzled following a promising start. In what would be a common theme through the night, penalties played a major role in Culpeper’s first drive ending in a punt. “That was a big focal point for us,” CCHS head coach Ken Wakefield said, of talking to the players after the game about discipline. “Don’t beat yourself, if we’re going to lose to a better football game, any given night that can happen. Hats off to them, they made plays, we continue to hurt ourselves and put ourselves in bad situations. That game could have very easily been much closer than what it was.” On Culpeper’s very next drive, they had an opportunity to extend it with a 10-yard run by quarterback JaVae Colclough, but a holding penalty negated his run and the Blue Devils punted again. Eastern View took control of the ball and rattled off a 11-play drive culminating with a 2-yard run by Lowry. “We had a plan for what we wanted to do and we just wanted to give them something different,” Hatfield said. “Our offensive line


Eastern View High School's Matt Lowry passes against Culpeper County High School Aug. 24. The Cyclones won the 2018 Cannonball Classic 37-0. and our lineman wanted to make a statement this game and I think they made that statement.” Following a Zach Brown interception of Colclough, the Cyclones took over again and it took just two plays before Lowry hooked up with Blake Leake for a 34-yard touchdown pass. In the third quarter, Lowry had to take a series off due to cramps but Till Butler came in and didn’t miss a beat, finishing off an EVHS drive with a 5-yard touchdown run. Culpeper had its best chance to score on the next drive, but were stopped on fourth-and-goal on the EVHS 8-yard line when Colclough was swallowed up by the Cyclone defense on a huge goal-line stand. “It’s always good to shut someone out, I was real happy we had our subs in and they made a great play on the last play of the game,” Hatfield said. “I was very happy with how our defense played.” The Blue Devils made strides, behind the tandem of Colclough

and Jalen Veeney, as they amassed 96 yards on the ground, but it wasn’t enough to crack the end zone. “When we were running the ball the defense started breaking out a lot and that’s what got us to the red zone, then we started falling apart as a unit,” Colclough said. Colclough starting at quarterback was something new for the Blue Devils, as normal starter Eric Wilson is coming back from an injury and then backup Nazier McDonald was banged up during the week. Despite Veeney and Colclough showing promise on the ground, Eastern View’s defense proved to be too much. “They did a good job of crowding the line of scrimmage,” Wakefield said. “They put that extra defender down there to stop him so our answer was to run the quarterback a little bit more.” CCHS travels to play Orange this week while EVHS hosts Turner Ashby.

Culpeper Fiesta provides services for community By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer The Culpeper Fiesta is just for fun, it’s to help Culpeper’s Hispanic population connect with the community. The 15th annual Fiesta will be held Friday, Sept. 14 from 6 to 10 p.m. near the Depot in downtown Culpeper. Organizers Ed and Marilyn Dunphy said the event has become something everyone in the community looks forward to. It’s also a great way to help the Hispanic population find help if they need it. “About 15 years ago the Hispanic population was starting to grow and we noticed they needed help with access to services,” Marilyn said. Then an employee of the health department, Marilyn worked with an AmeriCorp worker to set up the first fiesta, which was held in May. A few years ago, the organization switched to Fridays and held the event in September, which is Hispanic Heritage Month. Sponsored by Columbia Gas of Virginia and Novant Health UVA Health System Culpeper Medical Center, the fiesta offers food, fun but most importantly services the Hispanic community needs. One of those services is free sight and hearing testing provided by the Culpeper Mid Day Lions sight and hearing van.

“The Fiesta is kind of a health fair, and it was one aspect we haven’t covered yet,” Ed said. “Vision tests are a thing that’s kind of an extra,” Marilyn said. “We’ve known a lot of Hispanics that obviously need glasses but it’s an extra they can’t afford. We thought it was a good fit.” A multitude of services are offered, from Walgreens providing free flu shots, to a Hispanic Alcoholic Anonymous group, to a FAHAS quick HIV test, to SAFE and including Culpeper Public Schools math and ESL programs. Other organizations that will be present include Germanna Community College, Kid Central’s Head Start program and the Piedmont Dental Clinic. Sycamore Park Elementary students will be dancing, Semilla Cultural from Fredericksburg will be showcasing Bomba and Theatrical Artists of Culpeper will be performing. The other highlight is the food - pupusas, tacos, Peruvian chicken, Puerto Rican food and more. The fiesta has added two new food vendors to help cut down on lines this year. For the Dunphys, the fiesta helps cultivate and share the love of Hispanic culture they discovered while serving in the Peace Corps in the Dominican Republic. “Neither of us spoke any Spanish or new anything about Latin


The 15th annual Culpeper Fiesta will be held Sept. 14 from 6 to 10 p.m. near the Depot. America before that,” Marilyn said. “When you live in a Hispanic country, you acquire a love for the culture. There’s no way around it.” They’ve embraced Culpeper’s Hispanic population, which as changed over the years, Ed said. They first saw Hispanic families move to Culpeper to work on the dairy farms, then that shifted to working in the area green houses. Now, they come to work in construction and many other industries. There’s also more variety to their nationalities, Marilyn said, covering Mexican, Salvadoran, Hondurans and Guatemalans. “There’s been a big change in the

makeup, it covers a much broader territory now,” Marilyn said. They stress that the Fiesta is a safe place for the Hispanic community and want them to feel comfortable in their own town. “When people feel like they are part of the community, they contribute to it,” Ed said. “If you make them feel like they are outsiders, they don’t have anything invested in it.” To learn more about the Culpeper Fiesta, visit their Facebook page or visit If you would like to help sponsor the event, email vadunphy@gmail. com.

CAYA 5K serves as organizations biggest fundraiser ➤ Annual charity run will be held at Verdun Adventure Bound Sept. 22 By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer It’s been more than three years since Moira Satre lost her son Bobby to a heroin overdose, and the Fauquier resident is working to make sure families don’t have to grieve the way she does. Satre started Come As You Are (CAYA) a nonprofit designed to help in the fight against substance abuse. CAYA will host its third annual 5K Saturday, Sept. 22 at 9 a.m. at Verdun Adventure. In 2017 over 200 runners registered for the event, money raised through fees and sponsorships far exceeded goals set. Funds raised in 2018 will continue to support existing programs. “We’re really trying to come up with some real solutions for our community, to fill the needs,” Satre

said. She serves on the Community Resources United to Stop Heroin (CRUSH) committee and the treatment subcommittee. She said the funds raised by the 5K go to help presenting the Revive classes, which are held once a month in all five counties (Culpeper, Fauquier, Rappahannock, Orange and Madison). The money raised also helps prevention programs, such as sending high school students the Youth Alcohol Drug Abuse Addiction Project conference. This year they sent Highland School and Fauquier County HIgh School with Fauquier taking first place. “They go and interact with other students across the state and you have to create a prevention plan they have to bring back to their schools and implement,” Satre said. CAYA also works with other nonprofits, such as Piedmont Girls on the Run, for prevention projects. “We finance programs in the community that have to do with providing prevention that target kids,” Satre said. “We like to support any organizations that their

By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer It’s hard to talk about Blues on the East Coast without talking about Mark Wenner. The founder of the legendary Nighthawks blues band reminisced about his 46 years in the blues industry prior to playing Verdun Adventure Bound’s Blues Festival Aug. 26. The annual Blues Fest has become one of Verdun’s biggest successes, and on Sunday more than 100 people turned out to listen to Remington Steel, The Tom Robbins Blues Band, The Dear Johns Blues Band and the Nighthawks. For Wenner, the Blues Festival gives him a chance to connect with other local bands, ones they might miss on the road. Usually they’ll appear one week and one of the other bands would have just been at the venue or they’ll be coming next week. At Verdun, they all get to hang out and listen to each other, chiding each other behind the stage about their performance. “It’s just a nice little setting,” Wenner said. “We know all these guys, all these other bands. It’s a good hang. To have a festival situation it means everybody has to share equipment and hang out and hear each other.” Wenner is an institution when it comes to blues on the East Coast. Based out of Washington, D.C., The Nighthawks have been playing since 1972 - recording 28 albums in that

time. Nearing 70, Wenner has been the one constant in the band while the rest of the line has changed over time. In fact, they recently added Paul Piscotta on bass and Dan Hovey on guitar, replacing longtime guitarist Paul Bell - who played with the group Sunday. Mark Stutso rounds out the group on drums. The new blood is what keeps Wenner going. “I refuse to quit,” Wenner said. “I have two new guys so it’s a burst of energy. I’ve been doing some of these songs for 50 years. It’s a creative period right now for the band.” It’s almost a renaissance period for the band, as younger audiences are being introduced to them by streaming a pair of popular TV shows. Wenner, a graduate of Bethesda Chevy Chase High School made connections with a younger graduate - TV producer David Simon. Simon called him years ago asking if he could feature a Nighthawks song on “Homicide” which aired on NBC. “I said why don’t you write us into a scene,” Wenner said with a laugh. A few years later, the group was featured in an episode of “The Wire,” which is still paying dividends. One of the other band members came up during this interview and exclaimed “I was watching the Wire and was like ‘I know that guy!’” “More people that have this experience and are seeing it for the first time,” Wenner said. Wenner compares it to the first time he heard his voice on the radio. “It’s cool as sh*t,” Wenner said with a laugh. “It’s funny, we were just talking about hearing yourself on the car radio for the first time. It’s like you’re cruising and you just hear yourself on the radio.” ➤ See Music, Page 7

Piedmont United Way to dissolve by Sept. 30




Celebrating 25 years in Business! By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer The Piedmont United Way will stop accepting donations Sept. 30. According to Piedmont United Way President of the Board of Directors Russell Houck, the PUW Board of Directors voted to dissolve the organization at their June 26 meeting. “Declining revenues for the last decade lead us to that decision,” Houck said. “We had sought since February of 2018 to merge our organization with either Rappahannock United Way based in Fredericksburg or Jefferson United Way based in Charlottesville. Neither organization showed an interest in a merger.” The Piedmont United Way sent out a letter to partner agencies, workplace campaign sites and donors announcing their dissolution last week. Houck said they will stop taking donations Sept. 30. “We will disburse any funds designated to partner agencies through October,” Houck said. The Piedmont United Way owns its office at 118 E. Piedmont Street, and plans to sell the property. Houck said that proceeds from the sale (after they pay any obligations) will be used to give grants to United Way partner agencies.

Culpeper Human Services will assume “First Call for Help,” a service provided by PUW staff and funded by the Culpeper Ministerial Association for people who need financial assistance in paying utilities. Former Piedmont United Way Executive Director Jack Garber retired from his position on May 31. In the letter distributed to donors, the PUW board described the declining contributions through their primary source workplace campaigns of employee payroll deductions and matches by employers. They detailed the “steady” decline of $454,931 in 2006-2007 to $266,001 in 2016-2017. “As contributions have declined, so have the administrative fees we collect which paid our employees and maintained our office at 118 East Piedmont Street in Culpeper,” the letter reads. “We have taken measures to cut our expenses, but we cannot offer competitive salaries to our employees, adequately maintain our property, nor operate with the monies we collect.” “We are appreciative of your past contributions to the Piedmont United Way and our partner agencies and we know your generosity to those in need in our community will continue after we close our doors,” the letter concluded.

➤ Music, from Page 6 After 28 albums and 46 years, one would think Wenner could be slowing down, but he says he’s still going strong. “I’m just always thinking of cool stuff to do,” Wenner said. “I’m not good at writing, I wrote a little bit back in the day. I’ve got enough songs I’ve written that when we’re in a situation to showcase all original stuff, I’ve got enough out there.” An affable fellow with two long sleeves of tattoos on both arms, Wenner presents a commanding figure when he takes the microphone. Within seconds of the Nighthawks taking the stage on Sunday, people were up out of their lawn chairs and dancing. His deep growl gave way to a harmonica solo and the tunes echoed through the woods at Verdun. Wenner appreciated the audience participation. “It’s kind of weird how we do make the biggest money for the gigs where nobody is looking at you or listening to you,” Wenner said. “Then you get these incredible intimate gigs like this, and this is a charity gig.” Blues is growing and evolving, he said. He pointed out that when they started there were very few Blues societies or festivals. Now there’s hundreds of both.

The Tom Robbins Band played the Blues Festival at Verdun Adeventure Bound. “It’s pretty special, it’s got a lineage and an addictive quality,” Wenner said of the genre. “I really started listening to rock ‘n roll radio in the 50s when there was still actually Blues being played. "As I started knowing the word the blues and realizing the elements in rock ‘n roll I liked were the bluesy elements.” Wenner is eyeing 50 years of making music, but it’s not the end of the road for him. Festivals like the one at Verdun keep recharging his batteries. “With 46 years and some new guys, I’m pretty sure I could do 50 standing on my head at this point,” Wenner said. “That seems not necessarily an end destination, just a get that far destination.”

HISTORY French Royalty in Culpeper: The final chapter A military man imbued with a hearty sense of duty to his adopted country, Duphane offered his services to President McKinley as an officer or a private in the Spanish American War according to the Cincinnati Enquirer published May 1, 1898. No response from the President has been found; nonetheless, Duphane was diligent in his efforts. A poster dated May 17, 1898, was distributed by Duphane throughout the New Market, Virginia area calling for “100 Volunteer Crack Shots, For Immediate Service.” There is no evidence that DuPhane served either at home or abroad for the United States during the Spanish American War. As to the identity of his father,

several newspaper accounts before and after his death claim that his father was Count Henri Charles de Chambord, the exiled heir to the French throne as Henry V. Additionally, the articles stated that Edgar Duphane was the sole heir and the next Count of Chambord. An article published on Sunday, June 16, 1901, after Duphane’s death called Duphane Edward rather than Edgar and reported the following; “At his funeral a biography endorsed by the British Government and proving him a genuine Count was read at the grave. The biography recited that Edgar Sydolph Jerome Rodabert de Duphane, County de Chaberd [sic] was a son of Henri Charles de Chamberd [sic] and Anna Lamar, daughter of Judge Lamor [sic] of Savannah, Georgia and born at Toulon, France, September 16, 1865.” Note: according to the census, marriage and immigration records his year of birth varies between ➤ See French, Page 11

H E A LT H Acromio-Clavicular Separation and what it means THEM BONES AND JOINTS

Remember that the shoulder is mostly attached to the body by muscles and only a single joint, the acromioclavicular joint where the acromion portion of the shoulder blade joins the end of the collarbone. It’s this joint, and not the actual ball-and-socket shoulder joint, that’s disrupted when athletes suffer a “separated shoulder.” In this joint, like every other, a special cartilage covers both ends of the bones that form the joint while a small crescent structure, a meniscus (men-NISS-cuss) (meniscus meaning “crescent”) , lies between the bone ends inside the joint . When the acromioclavicular joint separates, ligaments associated with it can rupture, the most drastic and

Dr. Tom Neviaser

common separation being labeled Grade 3. The causative injury may be a severe blow, or it may occur when someone lands on the top of the shoulder. This downward force on the acromion and the shoulder blade will rupture several ligaments, and immediately afterward the end of the collarbone may ride higher than its normal position in relation to the acromion. This injury can be left alone without surgery, or it can be operated on at any time after the injury. The shoulder usually won’t lose any motion or strength, and weakness may not be noticeable unless there is pain, in which case surgery is probably advisable. Acromio-Clavicular Arthritis The acromio-clavicular joint (A-C joint) is probably one of the first joints to undergo arthritic changes. I have

seen X-ray evidence of severe arthritic changes in this joint in people between 20 and 30 years of age. So much force is placed on this joint that it’s no wonder that it degenerates relatively early in life. Often, these changes don’t cause pain, but when they do, it’s usually directly over the joint. At times, the pain can also be referred back over the clavicle to the top of the trapezius muscle. This is another situation that can lead to confusion for the doctor who may believe the pain is coming from the neck. If there’s a painful arthritis in this joint, it will always be tender when examined, no matter where its pain is referred. In the course of a physical examination, therefore, the doctor should always press on the top of the acromio-clavicular joint. One important test can help narrow down the possible sources of the pain if the A-C joint is suspected: an injection of the anesthetic Lidocaine into the joint. This little joint

can hold only a small amount of fluid, and if the injection does not relieve the pain, one must look elsewhere for the cause. If the local anesthetic entirely relieves the pain, this joint is definitely the cause of pain. Once arthritis in the acromioclavicular joint is diagnosed, if conservative treatment fails, and the pain is enough to disturb the patient's lifestyle, it’s time to consider surgery to widen the joint to keep the bones from rubbing together. This procedure is called an acromioclavicular arthroplasty— arthroplasty simply meaning “an operation on a joint.” When the acromioclavicular joint is the sole cause of shoulder pain, this procedure, either arthroscopic or open, is highly successful, with few complications. The surgeon removes a small section of the end of the clavicle. This is the procedure of choice for isolated acromioclavicular arthritis. ➤ See Health, Page 11

Parks and Rec begins Lenn Park 'jam session' Contributed report Over the past several years, the staff at Culpeper County Parks and Recreation has been busy trying to locate individuals with musical talents that would be interested in using the Lenn Park outdoor amphitheater. Staff has reached out to local businesses and asked to place flyers advertising for interested musicians that were seeking a facility to play with other musicians in a group setting or known as “jamming”. “About two weeks ago I had a response from a lady that read the flyer placed in a local music store that said she may have some friends that would like a facility to jam,” said John Barrett, director of Culpeper County Parks and Recreation. Staff and the group met, work out a few details, and they are now playing music in Lenn park on Thursday evenings from 6:30pm to 9pm. Anyone can go down to Lenn amphitheater on Thursdays to play or just drop by to listen. Various genre’s will be per-

formed throughout the evening. The jam session will continue for the next month or two for anyone

that’s interested. County staff and the core musicians, will continue to work on oth-

er ideas to recruit additional residents and even school students to be involved with this style of venue.

➤ French, from Page 8 1861-1865. In researching Count Henri Charles de Chambord 1820-1883, there has been no evidence discovered that the Count married an Anna Lamar. His wife of record was Archduchess Maria Theresa of Austria-Este and they are noted as having no children. If indeed Edgar was Count Henri’s son, then possibly he was the illegitimate child of an unsanctioned union. Or maybe, Edgar was the son of a different royal line. Duphane stated in his letter to the citizens of Culpeper that his father and uncle fought for the Confederacy. A closer look at the military records reveals that in fact, two Frenchman of the d’Orleans line and sons of King Louis Phillipe served from 1861-1862 but not with the Confederacy. These two noblemen donned the blue uniform of the Union Army under the command of George McClellan. Louis Philippe d’Orleans, Count of Paris was also a contender with his cousin Henri Charles de Chambord for the throne. The Count of Paris’ younger brother Robert Philippe d’Orleans was known as the duc of Chartres. Could one of these men have been Edgar’s father in a dalliance with Anna Lamar? Edgar Duphane suffered a tragic death cloaked in yet another letter of inconsolable misery. On June 8, 1901, The Washington Times reported that

Local News

Edgar de Duphane was found dead in a cell at the Second police precinct stationhouse having been arrested the night before for drunkenness and incarcerated until sober. The coroner indicated that Duphane died of heart disease. Duphane had 12 cents in his pocket, a photo of his wife and a receipt for a registered letter he had sent to his wife on June 4th. Based on new evidence The Washington Times on June 11, 1901, amended the cause of death from heart disease to a probable suicide. Having received a letter dated June 5th on stationary from the St. James Hotel where Duphane had paid in advance for his lodging, a friend of Duphane’s informed the newspaper that Duphane’s mood was desolate and had written, “When you receive this I shall be dead.” Captain Edgar Duphane is buried in St. Matthews Cemetery in New Market, Virginia. We may never know the full story of this fascinating individual, but the intrigue causes one to ponder just who else has been living next door? Until next week, be well.

➤ Health, from Page 9 I first performed this operation arthroscopically in the 1990s, something that wasn’t generally done at the time. One of my patients generously allowed me to operate on him through the arthroscope. The surgery was relatively easy and the result most satisfying to both the patient and me. However, the hardest portion of the surgery was his tattoo. He had tattoos over his entire body, and because his favorite one lay directly over the affected joint, my greatest challenge was choosing the appropriate spots for

the small incisions to avoid deforming the tattoo. Acromioclavicular arthritis can occur by itself, or it can be associated with rotator-cuff disease. Arthritic changes of the joint often form osteophytes (OSS-tee-oh-fights), or bone spurs, that can protrude into the subacromial space, irritating the rotator cuff underneath. Failure to look for and correct such conditions in the course of repairing a rotator cuff may leave the patient with continued pain. Widening the joint surgically eliminates the bone spurs and does not interfere with the mechanics of shoulder motion.

VIEWS Delicious yet malicious As a kid growing up in North Carolina and Virginia there Marshall Conner was a primal curiosity and thrill to crabbing that lured me in like a ravenous Jimmy holding on the flesh of a fresh chicken neck. Crabs are so fun to net when walking in the odiferous tidal salt marsh in old sneakers. Crabs are perfect because they are stubborn and never surrender. The scrappy Atlantic blue crab with its poetic and fitting Latin name Callinectes sapidus is a creature that possesses legendary tenacity and a glorious taste. Callinectes translates from Greek to English as “Beautiful swimmers” and sapidus translates roughly to “tasty.” The steamed crab is a southern cookout staple, tossed on newspaper and picked with varying degrees of skill. When paired with cold beer, corn and a little bowl of butter it is a meal that makes the poor feel wealthy and the rich feel humble. The memory of a first crab boil always makes an impression on a child. My late mother, who had a caring heart always told me how the sound of scraping claws bothered her when the crabs were in the pot. However, sympathy for these tasty, armored psychos often fades when you feel the power of their pinch or dip their claw in butter. Our region more specifically the Chesapeake Bay produces nearly fifty percent of all blue crabs eaten in restaurants and at picnics across the nation. Crabs often make a great metaphor in addition to an epic crab ravioli and fried soft-shell sandwich. Crusty old columnists, watermen,


comics and even rappers have pondered the pinch. Legendary Baltimore Sun columnist H.L. Mencken, “The Sage of Baltimore” pondered man and crabs. “Have you ever watched a crab on the shore crawling backwards in search of the ocean and missing? That is the way the mind of a man works,” he wrote. Recently, a new billboard was unveiled in Baltimore by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) it shows a blue crab with claws outstretched and the words “I’m Me, Not Meat. See the individual, Go Vegan,” written next to it. In Charm City, the very home of Old Bay Seasoning this billboard was taken as a direct attack on its most cherished crustacean. I mean they love them, really, they do… steamed. Mencken once wrote, “In this town there are 50 ways to prepare a crab---all of them good.” To me the Blue Crab is a creature that doesn’t need a high degree of cuddling. They are the living definition of defiance with their claws held high— they give no quarter, nor do they expect any from a human trying to make them dinner. A crab lives and dances on the tides—eating all types of nasty dead stuff. They are delicious, yet malicious and I’m not all together sure that they even like each other. The lone exception seems to be mating or when they are soft and vulnerable like a hipster after a pumpkin beer. “You cannot teach a crab to walk straight,” wrote Aristophanes, a comic and playwright in ancient Greece. It was funnier in 300 BC. Political discourse in Washington, D.C. often reeks like a salt-marsh, especially in August. Crabs are remarkably stubborn, snappy and shortsighted just like our friends making political arguments on social media. “Washington is gripped by crab-in-

the-bucket syndrome. And there's no cure in sight. Put a single crab in an uncovered bucket, and it will find a way to climb up and out on its own. Put a dozen crabs in a bucket, and 11 will fight with all their might to pull down the striver who attempts escape,” wrote political commentator Michelle Malkin. Rapper Kayne West even spoke about crabs once. He said, “We have the ability to approach our race like ants or the ability to approach our race like crabs.” This could mean that it’s better to help each other along rather than latching on to each other in anger. Oddly enough crabs are notoriously surly before they take that final swim in the spicy hot tub. I recall discussing the impending doom of a dozen crabs with my 7-year-old daughter. “I think if they’d stop fighting with each other they could escape,” she said staring into a bushel basket. “Are they like that because you released all the girl crabs?” I explained it like a wise old waterman, “It’s always more gentlemanly to free the ladies.” “Girl crabs are prettier anyway dad they have painted tips on their claws,” she added with the impish charm of a smiling little girl. People with big hearts tend to question the need for live steaming--I like to think it is fitting and even a bit karmic. Maybe inside one of those little crusty crab’s carapaces is the soul of a former dictator, Cowboys fan or telemarketer. Let me explain. You see if a person was somehow reduced to the size of a crab, those delicious claws would be gleefully ripping them apart for food. Have you ever lost a crab in a boat and have it slide around? How about a kayak? These Spartans of the salt-marsh show no fear.

Introducing Cally Tales CALLY TALES Cally

(Editor's note: We pride ourselves on offering different voices from our community but it was brought to our attention we didn't have any animal voices ... until now. Today we welcome Cally, a friend of

Sally Humphries, the author of her own book 'Cally Tales' that is available for purchase at Reigning Cats and Dogs in downtown Culpeper. We hope you enjoy her montly columns, because we think she's a 'purrfect' fit.) My earliest memory is of bright headlights on a rainy, dark road and a frantic run for cover in grass and weeds. I crashed into a rickety fence and cried my eyes out for my Mama.

The next morning I was coaxed out of the wet weeds by a gentle lady who had seen my frantic run and marked the spot. She brought food, and I was hungry. I ventured forth and agreed to be rescued. She found me irresistible. The question was, however, not how irresistible I was, but how adoptable. The gentle lady already ➤ See Cally, Page 18

had a Maine Coon, and he was not in favor of sharing his space with the likes of me. So she asked a Widow she knew to take me in. “Don’t you think you’d like a kitten to keep you company?” was the way she put it. The Widow didn’t think so. She planned to be busy visiting grandchildren. Nevertheless, she said she would pray about it. “Would you hurry?” the Cat Rescuer quickly replied. “My husband is just around the corner and he is bringing a Calico kitten to show you.” The Widow managed to say: “Well, I suppose … maybe … I could take a look.” When I arrived, I snuggled up, licked her arm, and was absolutely irresistible. That’s how I went from wet weeds to a comfortable home and regular meals in forty-eight hours.” Since I am a Calico of bronze and white and honey colors, Cally was a logical name. I also have a white bib which makes me look like a maître d’, four white paws, and a freckle on my nose. However, being a charming, cuddly, playful kitten only gets you so far. I knew I had to buckle down and earn my keep. My home was on a wooded lot and had a basement and garage, so mice flocked to it for shelter and warmth. Instinctively I knew this was a problem, and I was the one who must solve it. No one trained me in “mousing;” they didn’t have to. The first time I

saw a mouse, I knew what to do – stalk, capture, and dispose of. In no time, I made a dent in the mouse population, and the Widow was pleased. She knew when I disappeared in the basement for an extended period and only came upstairs at bedtime. I was attending to business. Then when I reappeared for lap sits, she came to the basement to get the body count and see where I had put the deceased. Sometimes I laid them out mafia style between the oil tank and the furnace. Sometimes there was no trace, not even a whisker – and I gave no hints. My motto was, and still is, “Keep ‘em guessing.” I learned this from my cousin, Precious, who lives in Indiana. Hence the other night the Widow passed the laundry basin in the basement and saw a strange looking string in the drain. She pulled it then screeched like a teenager. The “string,” of course, was the tail of a mouse. A dead mouse, but nevertheless a mouse who was head down in the open drain. How could that happen? She was in a state of shock and wonder. She wanted details. My official response was, “No comment.” Like Precious says, “It’s best to keep ‘em guessing.” I’ll tell you more about Precious next week.
