The gift that keeps on giving Every so often I open the box of priceless treasures, and spend time examining these historical items passed down from generation to generation. The Hales Farm, located in rural Liberty Center, Ohio, yielded more than corn, wheat, and soybeans from its land of over 150 years. Through instances of plowing and planting the fields, numerous arrowheads had arisen to the surface. These smooth and jagged objects, along with stones fashioned into hammers, were manufactured by the local Native American inhabitants which were indigenous to the area. Some of these artifacts, dated over a


thousand years, were a living history to the civilizations which originated in the once swamp dominated region. As I gaze upon these pieces, I thoughtfully realize that I am touching the beginning of our nation. It’s truly the gift that “keeps on giving.” But there is another gift which is even far greater than historic hunting tools. There is a gift that saves, a gift which strengthens, and a gift which supplies hope. And that is a free, gift of faith which we are being offered in the name Jesus Christ of Nazareth. In Ephesians 2:8-9 it is written, “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not by your own doing; it is the gift of God not a result of works, so that no one may boast.” Faith in Jesus is free. I realize that we sometimes “scoff” at free things. And the question which instantly

comes to our minds is, “How good is it if it’s free?” But is this just an excuse? Is it far to easy to place our trust in other things, rather than simply believing? The Apostle Paul sums it up in Romans 1:25 as he writes, “They exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator-who is forever praised Amen! When I was baby, my parents gave me this certain pacifier, aka “binky.” They said that I was so enamored by this molded plastic that it rarely left my mouth. Until one day it was lost, and my parents couldn’t find it. Trying to quell the disdain of their toddler, mom and dad found a new binky just like the old one, thinking that I wouldn’t notice. Crisis averted. But once that pacifier touched my lips, I somehow knew that it was a fake, and I heaved it across the room never to be used again. I was so attached to this object that nothing else would satisfy me. And If we’re so attached to the things of this world, how are we ever going to be satisfied by Jesus? It’s hard for us humans to submit and surrender to another. We desire to control the life agenda and our destinies. But honestly, do we really have that kind of power and ability? Let’s just admit it. When it comes to eternity, forgiveness, love, strength and direction there is only one way to turn, and that is to seek Christ- “The Way,

The Truth and The Life.” This free, gift of faith is being offered. Obviously, it came at a cost through Jesus shed blood and death. But for us, no pressure. No strong arming. No coercion. The Lord knows how much it can affect our lives in such a profound and transformative way. As it is written in Joshua 23:8, “But you shall cling to the Lord your God just as you have done to this day.” Years ago, I met a woman who constantly clung to Jesus. And did she ever need it. In a span of just a short time, her husband died, her house burnt down, and her son needed a heart transplant. Many would have abandoned Christ, and wondered, “Why me?” But she refused. In fact, her faith continued to grow stronger and stronger. We have no idea where the journey of life is going to take us. But there is one constant. One guarantee. One variable that will never change. And that is the free, gift of faith being offered to us in Jesus Christ. May our hearts receive this faith, as it will be the ultimate gift that “keeps on giving.” Brad Hales is the pastor of Reformation Lutheran Church in Culpeper. Along with being ordained for over 24 years, he is also the Director of Domestic Mission for the North American Lutheran Church. You can contact Pastor Hales at bhales@

Mayles steps down as Chamber President/CEO The Culpeper Chamber of Commerce announced today the resignation of Chamber President & CEO Wes Mayles. Mayles was hired by the Culpeper Chamber of Commerce in November, 2017. He leaves to pursue another opportunity. “It’s been a great experience being part of the Chamber, I have enjoyed working with its members and the community. I’m looking forward to my next chapter and wish the Chamber all the best,” Mayles said. Chamber Board Chair Frankie Gilmore expressed the Board’s “appreciation for his tenure with the organization and wishes him the best in his next endeavor.” The Chamber Board has begun planning for recruitment of a new executive. In the meantime, the Chamber Board and Staff are focused on the remaining Candidate Forums hosted by the Chamber, the annual Legislative Breakfast scheduled for after the fall elections, and the Chamber’s signature event, its Annual Meeting & Awards Banquet celebrating the business leaders of the community.

BOS approves amendments to utility scale solar policy The Culpeper County Board of Supervisors approved 7-0 amendments to the Utility Scale Solar Development Policy Tuesday during their monthly morning meeting. The discussion of the policy, which was crafted by the rules committee and forwarded to the full board without recommendation, took almost an hour and dove into the minutiae of policy and caused some heated discussion among board members. Cedar Mountain Supervisor Jack Frazier took umbrage at the fact he had to read about the rules committee meeting in the newspaper and didn’t receive an invite to the meeting - citing how controversial and important this subject is to the community. “This procedure should be open to all,” he said. BOS chairman and Jeffersonton District supervisor Brad Rosenberger clarified that all board members are “invited” to committee meetings and may speak at the pleasure of the


Riley Reynolds (Editor's note: This is weekly series highlighting members of Culpeper's Youth Council. To join Culpeper Youth, go to to apply.) When I left for college, I thought that I would never be approached to do a profile again. I am so glad that is not the case! I have learned so much while being at school, even in this short amount of time and its true what your teachers say, college is not high school. I realized that when I had to watch Us, the Jordan Peele horror movie for my English class, or when my professors drop expletives when they discuss... well, anything! I realized it most though, when I received my absentee ballot in the mail. Something I had to send for. It was my responsibility. As a citizen, it's my duty to vote and as someone who won't be in town on election day, I had to make arrangements to perform my duty. I went on, filled out the absentee application and then, four days later, I received my envelope! I couldn't open the ballot envelope before I was voting and had a witness present. I found a witness and voted in our local elections by means of an absentee ballot right after my U.S. Government class, which I felt was very fitting. Voting was such a rush, I was filled with pride because I participated in something that would impact our town. That's why everyone should show up on election day. Or, on the absentee ballot! committee chairman. After that discussion was handled, the meat of the discussion was on several points in the policy and if the language was too narrow. Frazier was a proponent for having more focused language in the policy, so as to protect the county and its citizens from being harmed by developers bringing utility scale solar into the community. “I think there needs to be two bonds passed instead of just one,” Frazier said, referencing the bond a

developer would have to present for decommission. “The first bond should be to insure the project is complete.” County attorney Bobbi Jo Alexis later in the meeting added language, being presented as item No. 6 in the policy, that would address any bond issues that Frazier had. Frazier then discussed item No. 10, on the total land used for a project. The policy reads: “Specifically, it is intended that approximately 2,400 total acres or 240 megawatts of

production serve as an upper target for utility scale solar development, which is representative of the County’s footprint on the electrical grid.” Frazier argued that since most of the solar scale projects only produce 20 to 25 percent of electricity, that 240 megawatts could be misinterpreted or could lead developers to want to do more than 2,400 acres. Alexix explained the county could not set a hard cap - but they can have a target number for a solar footprint on the grid. “How do we determine what the grid would be?” Catalpa Supervisor Sue Hansohn asked. “As we grow that number is going to grow.” Stevernsburg District supervisor Bill Chase questioned what this policy was attempting to do as each case is supposed to be determined on merit. “Citizens of this county think the comprehensive plan is ironclad - the comprehensive plan could be changed day by day,” he said. “Is this a policy or just a guideline?” After extension conversation on the policy - which included language designting by the Virginia Department Resources pursuant to Civil War battlefields, project phasing and use permit conditions - the board agreed to approve the policy as is, while leaving open the possibility of revisiting it if a future board would be interested. Rosenberger summed up the discussion succinctly: “This is better than what we have, we should adopt what we have here and continue to work with it.” In other business: • The board approved 7-0 to purchase a bus for the transport of inmates to and from the Rappahannock Shenandoah Warren Regional Jail, at a cost of $106,243. Sheriff Scott Jenkins explained that by purchasing a bus, it would be more cost effective than using the two vans the Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office currently utilizes. • The board voted 7-0 to “continue to explore” a Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee concept of taking ownership of Mountain Run Lake Park. Owned by the Town of Culpeper, the park is located in the county and would require the town to deed over the property to the county. The advisory committee explained that it would help meet needs in the Salem District of the county and laid out the expected cost of a little more than $142,000 that would require three new hires and maintenance of the facility.

LOCAL NEWS CCPS partners with nonprofits to provide bicycles By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer Culpeper County Public School students get to ride their bicycles this year - thanks to a new grant. Culpeper County Public Schools received $7,500 from Culpeper Wellness Foundation and the Northern Piedmont Community Foundation to start a new cycling program at both Culpeper County High School and Eastern View High School. A total of 50 bikes, 25 at each school, will be used in advanced physical education classes for lifetime sports. “By introducing mountain biking in the schools, we are offering kids an opportunity to get involved with a lifelong sport,” Culpeper Wellness Foundation President Shari Landy said. “They'll learn new skills, see improvement

in their abilities over time and increase self confidence. With concerns about obesity, heart disease and diabetes on the rise, we are pleased to help fund this initiative that promotes a fun and relatively low-cost outdoor physical activity. “CCPS believes this a great example of community organizations giving back and it demonstrates that partnerships are essential to creating more opportunities for our students,” the school district said in a release. At Eastern View, physical education teacher Paul Lutz has had students out on the bikes three times now. He said the enthusiasm they’ve shown for the program is contagious. “They are getting the cardio aspect from it but it’s also a ➤ See Bikes Page 6

Incomparable Suki & Max's "Glove Compartments" CALLY TALES

I met Suki on Facebook and was completely atwitter with the color of his eyes. They are a mysterious shade of green which is absolutely fascinating. I thought he must have come from a faraway kingdom on the other side of the sea – perhaps the Emerald Isle. But no, it turned out he came from Cat Rescue, and like me, he was only six weeks old and barely weaned when he was adopted. The difference was that his family chose him from an online glamour photo, while my Widow was persuaded to adopt me because I had been dumped on a busy street and left to die. Then, too, Suki snores while I sigh. Suki seems older and wiser somehow. He knows things. One day he gleefully told me he had been on a walkabout in his backyard. How did he manage that? He was an indoor cat like me. How did he escape? I was desperate to know. He ignored my probing questions and talked on and on about the wonders of falling leaves, the smell of grass, and the twittering of birds. The truth finally came out. His teenage human had talked him into putting on a harness and being walked on a leash like a d-o-g. I was stunned. Surely not. He admitted he wasn’t crazy about the harness at first, but then he decided he didn’t hate it. Besides, it was a beautiful green, the color of his eyes. Masculine ego, I said to myself. Is there no limit?


THE “H” WORD Harness is something I remember from my kitten days when my Widow put me into one. Someone had given her a jazzy harness and assured her it was possible to walk me around the block like the neighbors did their d-o-

g-s. This was not in the Cat Manual, and I had no intention of doing such a thing. Nevertheless, with the help of a friend, she managed to strap me in. I tore around the house, trailing the harness up and down the stairs, and almost had a heart attack before sinking into the carpet, exhausted, and shamed beyond words. My body language was very clear. My Widow heaved a sorrowful sigh and released me. She never mentioned the “H” word again. MY OLD FRIEND MAX I intend to discuss the “H” thing with Max, my old friend from up North. Max has rescued me from more than one crisis because of his advanced age and wisdom. He won’t steer me wrong about harness-walking. I need to talk to him anyway about the little pockets at the bottom on his ears. All cats have them. When I was young and innocent, Max told me, without a quiver of a whisker, that those pockets were his glove compartments where he kept his valuables. It was his little joke, and I fell for it hook, line, and sinker. Silly me. But now that I’m older, I know those little pockets indeed hide things, nasty things like ticks. This is serious business. I don’t want any ticks digging into Max’s meaty flesh and certainly not into the flesh of any of his humans. Since moving to Virginia, I have learned even more things about ticks. For one thing, they are schemers. It’s not difficult to imagine one tick asking another, “Shall we walk the neighborhood, or ride the cat?” I’m sure Max doesn’t want to be part of that. Next time I’ll tell you about my third escape. Until then, mind your manners and be polite to your humans. Cally Tales in its entirety is available at Reigning Cats and Dogs on Davis Street in Culpeper.

Jorge Melendez ices a cupcake during the Maker Energy Faire Saturday at Eastern View High School. Chef Jay Cohen's culinary arts class baked cupcakes and then iced them, allowing visitors to apply their own toppings - it was a popular attraction and a unique exhibit at the annual STEM program.

Positive energy ➤ Third annual Maker Energy Faire connects students, businesses with STEAM learning By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer Imaginations ran wild Saturday at Eastern View High School at the third annual Maker Energy Faire. Thousands of families played with robots, made slime, learned what’s inside a computer, flying drones and much more during the annual event celebrating science, technology, engineering, arts and math in schools. Hosted by Culpeper County Public Schools and CareerPartners Inc., the faire gave students a chance to dive deeper into some of the STEM curriculum they are already learning in Culpeper schools.

whole body workout,” Lutz said. “If I was to say ‘hey guys, we’re going to go out for a run,’ they would all be boo-hooing. If I say ‘we’re getting on the mountain bikes,’ they’re excited. They don’t realize they’re getting the exercise benefit from it.” The Trek bikes were purchased, with a discount, through Haymarket Bikes.

Randi Richards-Lutz, Career and Technical Education Director for CCPS, praised the relationship between the school system and the local business community. “This doesn’t happen anywhere else,” Richards-Lutz said. “We’re proud of that relationship.” She estimated that nearly 3,000 people turned out Saturday, making the annual Maker Faire a success. The event had more than 100 volunteers and many new exhibitors, including Amazon. “It’s a celebration of the energy and really a celebration of our community,” Richards-Lutz said. Career Partners President Roque Castro pointed to the school system as being a driving force of promoting STEM. “We have this amazing resource in our teachers that are doing these STEM projects and programs,” Castro said. “This is ➤ See Faire, Page 7

Senior David McMillion said his class looks forward to going out on the bikes. “It turns the workout into something fun, you get to see the campus,” McMillion said.

➤ Faire, from Page 6 what they eat, sleep and breathe every day.” Marty Bywaters-Baldwin, Director of Workforce Services, Rappahannock Goodwill Industries, Inc. and VP of Career Partners, greeted visitors at the door with a bag filled with a calculator, pens and safety goggles. The goggles came in handy later in the day when students had a chance to break apart the inside of a computer. “Creativity gets played out in so many ways - technology, science, the arts - and this is a great way for Culpeper schools to exhibit how they are tapping into that creativity of kids,” Bywaters-Baldwin said. “It’s a good hands-on thing for the whole family to do.” One of the highlights of the day was a drone obstacle course. During one flight, six-year-old Ben Koch, navigated the chopper up into the EVHS stands in the gym. Other students worked on the summer’s hottest activity - making slime. Students and teachers alike helped students mix together activator, coloring and glue to make the perfect mixture of slime. “The collaborative energy, the spirit of volunteerism, teamwork, entrepreneurship

are all exemplified,” Castro said. In the cafeteria, Maddox Lane proudly showed off dozens of LEGO creations. It took hours to build the multiple mobiles he had - and the seventh grader proudly talked with students about their shared love of LEGOs. “I had a kid come over here a second ago and say I want to order a bunch of those and I was like ‘if you can find those, I’ll be surprised because I built those with my own pieces,” Lane said. “I personally like the Star Wars LEGOs, you can build the military technology but my favorite part was taking the random parts and making it into something,” Lane said. Donovan O’Brien, CCPS Director of Instructional Delivery Coordinator, Gifted and Talented Education Curriculum Specialist, said he loves seeing the students share their love of technology. “It’s important to get kids involved, using the technology we use in the classroom and show why it’s pertinent and how it connects to future employment,” O’Brien said. “I think they’re becoming more inquisitive on putting their hands on technology and figuring out how it actually works.”

PACT brings families together for learning, fun By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer Culpeper Baptist Church is filled with people every Tuesday - as families converge on the venue for People and Community Together - a new initiative that emphasizes families and education in Culpeper. Lynn Gore, PACT coordinator, said the program started Aug. 20 and it’s grown every week - with last week attracting 52 community members. It features homework help and tutoring for students, STEM activities for kids, PACTALK with a community leader for adults, GED and ESL information and other activities such as line dancing and pickleball. On a recent Tuesday, Alex Smith, who also leads a Gospel choir monthly with the group, led a group of ladies in a line dance - laughing and smiling the whole time. “The concept in the beginning was provide a night where families could enrichment activities,” Gore said. “The parents could come and have something valuable for them to do while the kids have homework help and other opportunities they might not have other times.” A Soap Box Derby class is being

taught by Frankie Gilmore, Soap Box Region 8 education coordinator. Upstairs at Culpeper Baptist, a group of almost 30 Hispanic community members gather to learn English weekly. “We’ve targeted that population somewhat because we have natural affiliations with a couple of the Spanish churches,” Gore said. “They’ve been helping us with volunteers and getting things started.” Gore said the program is held from 5 to 8 p.m. every Tuesday night and they’ve had as many as 60 volunteers. “The dream in a year is to have 300 people every Tuesday night to fill the building,” Gore said. “We’d like to reach out to other areas of the community and just include everybody who wants to“It’s been overwhelmingly positive, everyone who comes is just really excited about the activities they are participating in. We see the same people come back week after week and bring friends with them. The volunteers just love it.” Community groups that help organize the event include: SAFE, Extension Office, Department of Human Services, Free Clinic of Culpeper, Culpeper County Public Schools,


Alex Smith teaches a line dancing class for PACT at Culpeper Baptist Church Sept. 17. PACT brings families together for after school study, programs such as line dancing, Soap Box Derby car creation and more. Wayland Blue Ridge Baptist Association, Primera Iglesia Bautista Maranatha, Culpeper Baptist Church, Windmore Foundation for the Arts, PRACEP and the Culpeper Literacy Council. Amir Kalamali, owner of Horizon Food Store, volunteers helping teach sixth grade math. “I’ve gotten a lot of love from the community and I want to give back,” Kalamali said. “I love it, I wait the whole week for this day to come. It’s like family. I miss my grandchildren, they live in Georgia, I get that missing part here.” Eastern View High School senior Abby Stern also works with tutoring kids and said she loves the interaction with the youngsters. “I think it’s important to have someone to look up to and someone to talk to,” Stern said. “I think it’s important to not only connect with the adults and connect with their peers



and have the different fun activities and games that are enhancing their lives.” Marilyn Dunphy helps with the English classes and says it’s joyful to see all the families come out to learn together. “This program is a program that I see as strengthening for families and any time we can come up with creative ways to make families feel more connected to the community, I think it’s important for us to participate,” Dunphy said. Gore said she encourages more people to join. If you’re interested, contact her at or visit the organization’s Facebook page. “It’s just to have people mix with other people in the community and start to develop some relationships,” Gore said. “If you have a relationship with folks, everything in the community just works better.”

POWER OF PINK Culpeper Medical Center engages, supports community during Breast Cancer Awareness Month If you’re seeing pink throughout the month of October, its with good cause – Breast Cancer Awareness month. At this time many companies and organizations hold fundraisers for cancer research. Local communities recognize and honor current patients and survivors and remember those lost to the disease. Medical centers, such as Culpeper Medical Center a Novant Health UVA Health System facility, host education and awareness events that invite local women to learn about breast health and receive their annual mammogram screenings in a supportive, informative and fun environment. Jonathan Nguyen, a breast-imaging specialist with UVA Radiology Group, explains the importance of mammogram screenings. ➤ See Breast cancer, Page 10

It’s not just the 3D mammogram that saves lives, but the doctor who reads it. Breast cancer screenings with the latest technology and UVA fellowship-trained breast radiologists Novant Health UVA Health System provides 3D breast cancer screening for improved accuracy and earlier detection. And because who reads your mammogram is as important as having it done, our facilities feature UVA fellowship-trained breast radiologists. Using this advanced technology, they can quickly detect small instances of breast cancer in tissue, or rule it out with greater confidence. With 3D mammography and an expert team, we’re bringing the best of health to you in a powerful new way.

➤ Breast Cancer, from Page 9 “We continue to learn more about the causes, risk factors and treatments for breast cancer, and have a greater understanding of the importance of early detection,” said Dr. Nguyen. “All normal risk women should include mammograms in their routine health screenings from age 40 on.” Culpeper Medical Center offers screening and diagnostic mammograms, as well as 3D mammography, which is a relatively new advancement that supports early detection of breast cancer. 3D mammography is a state-of-theart technology that allows radiologists to image the tissue inside a woman’s breast layer by layer. An X-ray arm sweeps over the patient and captures images one-millimeter at a time, which allows doctors to see fine details more clearly once it’s all pieced together. This helps lead to earlier detection, better visualization and fewer patient callbacks. “I can’t stress enough how important mammograms are, particularly as women age,” said Dr. Nguyen. “The earlier we are able to detect abnormalities, the higher the likelihood of the patient beating the disease. If we catch cancerous tissue early enough, treatment will be quicker and likely have minimal effects on a woman’s livelihood.” “Just as important as having your

Power of Pink

mammogram done in the first place, however, is having it evaluated by a trained professional,” said Dr. Nguyen. “All mammograms done at Culpeper Medical Center are read by UVA fellowship-trained breast radiologists.” These radiologists have the proper training to detect small cancers in very early stages, which means they are more likely to get treated before they are able to spread or metastasize to another part of the body. Novant Health UVA Health System offers another unique service – the mobile mammography unit. This service aims to ensure all women have access to high-quality breast health services, without having to travel to a fullservice imaging center, by bringing mammography machines to women where they live and work. Culpeper Medical Center hosts its annual Pamper Me Pink event Tuesday, October 22, 5:00 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. at Germanna’s Daniel Technology Center – 18121 Technology Drive, Culpeper. This event aims to raise awareness for breast cancer research, treatment and resources as well as provide valuable health resources, including onsite mammogram screenings, to local women in a supportive atmosphere. For more information about Novant Health UVA Health System mammography screenings or to schedule one, visit

Pamper Me Pink set for Oct. 22 Each October since 2005 Culpeper Medical Center, a facility of Novant Health UVA Health System, and Pepperberries have participated in Breast Cancer Awareness Month by teaming up to host Pamper Me Pink – an event that invites women to come together for an evening of pampering, health education and support. The event also helps raise funds for the Pamper Me Pink Mammography Fund which has raised over $220,000 and provided 600 free mammograms and follow-up imaging services to women and men of financial need within Culpeper and surrounding communities over the last 14 years. “It’s hard to believe that Pamper Me Pink, an annual event that has grown to over 500 attendees, started in a space above the Pepperberries store with a group pf 25 women,” said Sharon Clark, owner of Pepperberries. “Since then, Pepperberries and Culpeper Medical Center have been partnering together to provide free mammograms for men and women in our community.” This year’s event, to be held Tuesday, October 22 at Germanna’s Daniel Technology Center, is an opportunity for women to relax and be pampered with chair massages, hand wax treatments, refreshments, door prizes and entertainment. But the main focus of the event is health, and attendees will receive valuable information about breast health and hear from a panel discussion with cancer survivors hosted annually by Sharon Clark. They will also have the opportunity to receive their annual mammogram screenings in a supportive, informative and fun environment. To emphasize the importance of breast health screenings, breast-imaging specialists will provide mammograms onsite during the event. All women are encouraged to participate in these important screenings, particularly those over age 40. If you would like to donate to the Pamper Me Pink Mammography Fund, please contact Ashley Carter at 540-829-8828. Proceeds help provide financial assistance and free mammograms to women and men in need.

Lynn Nelson - strength as a survivor By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer (Editor's note: This article first ran Jan. 31, 2019. We thought it fitting to run again during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.) It was a shock when Lynn Nelson was diagnosed with breast cancer in April 2018 - easily the shock of her life. But if she had to choose the second shock of her life, it may have been Saturday night when her friends surprised her with a “celebration of life” party, commemorating her cancer going into remission. Nelson, a former elementary school teacher in Culpeper County and Stafford, threw her hands to her mouth when she realized that the party hosted in the pub of Grassrootes was in her honor. Organized by longtime friends Gloria Cooper, Karen Quantance, Pam Stewart and Jewell Duvall - ladies she has volunteered with at the Museum of Culpeper History - the party included more than 50 people from Nelson’s life that came out to congratulate her and shower her with love. Told it was a surprise party for Stewart’s birthday, Nelson walked in

yelling “surprise,” only to have the tables turned on her as her granddaughters excitedly greeted her at the door. “I had no idea,” Nelson said. “I’m not feeling 100 percent today, I just said to my husband ‘I don’t really know if I should go,’ and I asked if he would go without me. He said I think you should put into an appearance. I’m just so shocked.” Nelson’s faith remained strong throughout her ordeal. She has presented her experience at Pamper Me Pink and at Culpeper United Methodist Church, spreading the message that you can find joy in life - no matter your circumstance. “The thing that is so amazing about all of this, if we look at the gift embedded in every journey in life, even if when you journey includes cancer, when you look at the positive outcomes, the outpouring of friendship, the strengthening of faith, the close ties of family and friends - it just all becomes worthy of a celebration,” Nelson said. “I never expected this. I feel so unworthy and humbled by everything.” Quantance said watching Nelson handle her cancer diagnosis was inspirational.

“Watching her go through what she went through with the attitude she had, it was amazing,” Quantance said. “I couldn’t do that.” Quantance broke down in tears, recalling that she had a cancer scare right before Nelson’s diagnosis. “I kept thinking I could talk to her and help her, it didn’t work that way, it was the other way around,” Quantance said, wiping away the tears. She stressed that her experience and Nelson’s proves why everyone in the community should have a mammogram done - something that can be funded through the Pamper Me Pink foundation if a resident cannot afford one. “My experience was, they found mine because it was the first time I had a 3D one,” Quantance said. “It turns out it was something I had all my life and it just showed up.” Duvall said that Nelson’s faith is something everyone should strive to emulate. “She is so courageous and graceful and inspirational,” Duvall said. “She was always helping with the exhibits, she was my right hand man at museum preps,” Stewart said. “She’s just lovely. She is such a hum-

ble person, it was never why me, it was just ‘this is what I have and what I have to deal with.’” Her granddaughters - Anna, Lindsey and Claire Brown - helped organize props ahead of time and beamed with pride when their grandmother walked through the doors. “I think it’s a really big deal because she has gone through so much,” Anna said. “When doctors looked back at her history, they can’t believe they are in the room with them. I think it’s a big deal for everyone in this room to be here to show how much they supported her.” All three said her story is inspirational. “She’s a huge inspiration, I know it’s not genetic but if it happens to anyone else I can have this story to tell people that she went through so much and she made it,” Anna said. Cancer can be a scary moment for a family - but Nelson’s faith energized them. “I was really scared that something was going to happen to her, but I knew that she was in God’s hands and this was for a purpose,” Lindsey said. “I’m just really glad it ended up OK. It’s just a happy moment for our family.”

We are starting to hear the battle cry candidates as the election grows nearer…”Hell, yes, we're going to take your AR15, your AK-47.” Most candidates backpedal with such words, saying they will force a buy-back of assault weapons. Let’s evaluate what the reality is around this issue. First and foremost, the Bill of Rights is a document which does not give you rights, but restricts the government from taking freedoms from you. The second amendment states, in part, “…the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Yes, there is text about a well-organized militia, but this portion of the amendment is clear. The government can regulate the sale of such weapons, but they cannot prohibit them. Second, there is no universal definition of what is an “assault weapon.” The principles that make a gun a semi-automatic are the same between one of my pistols and an AR15. The difference is a longer barrel and a shoulder stock. When politicians say they want to stop the sales of assault weapons, that definition is deliberately vague. This allows them to include any weapon they desire. Third, gun bans don’t work. Washington DC, for decades, had an outright ban on handguns. Handgun related crimes continued and rose during those decades. Gun-free zones

don’t work either. Only law abiding citizens’ pay heed to these, and they are not a problem. Forced buy-back programs will not work in America. I am not in favor of the government making me do something I don’t want to do, and I believe our Founding Fathers would back me on this. The politicians pushing for buy-back programs know they don’t work. People that purchased those weapons may not wish to sell them. The politicos know that. The Democrats solution is to make gun owners do it regardless of their wishes and the Constitution. People will not turn their weapons in. Many, like me, have guns for protection. I’ll be damned if I turn it in and leave myself defenseless. Fourth, so-called red flag laws are seductive but won’t stop all massshootings. Yes, there are a lot of people out there that should not have access to weapons because of mental issues. And when it comes to mental illness, Congress is certainly working in their field of expertise. Who will determine which of us can be banned from owning weapons? Will you ban the friends and family members of this flagged person from owning weapons too? Where will the line be drawn? Ultimately, it doesn’t matter. Everyone knows these initiatives will not work. That is why confiscation is where Democrats are ultimately heading. The rest of this talk is merely window-dressing for the inevitable. Fear is the politician’s ally. To hear the news anchors talk, your children are at risk in any school in our country because of shooters. True believers

in the Constitution will not willingly surrender their rights so that others can feel safer. Confrontations are inevitable. Two words to consider as we are nudged down this path, Ruby Ridge. There will be standoffs and brutal slayings nightly, though the media will certainly portray this as a positive thing because it fits their agenda. To quote the movie Die Hard, “We’re gonna need some more FBI guys…” I am not a big gun enthusiast with an arsenal in my basement. I am a big freedom guy. I’m in favor of background checks across the board, most gun owners are. I am against the government taking away a right that is guaranteed me under the law because someone else is afraid. I’m against being left defenseless, stripped of that by a government that cannot always protect its citizens. I’m in this debate because I have a natural and healthy distrust of the government and politicians in general. Your fear does not mean I have to surrender my rights. A friend told me, “If you can tell me one legitimate reason why a person needs an assault weapon, I will back down from banning them.” My response, “As a citizen in a free society, I don’t have to tell you why I do or want anything. It is my protected right to have such a weapon if I so desire. Nor do you have the right to tell me what I can and cannot have. I have nothing to justify.” This isn’t about guns and guns alone, it is about the government taking away rights. It is inherently wrong and a dangerous path to tread.


Mr. Freitas’ failure to follow through reflects his lack of commitment to his position as our Delegate. Furthermore, Mr. Freitas has never accepted responsibility for his mistake. He blames Richmond and the Democrats, when all he needed to do was pick up the phone and check on things. I want a representative who takes responsibility for his actions even when they don’t cast him in the best light. I support Ann Ridgeway for the House of Delegates 30th District seat. She has a proven record of accomplishment in the 30th District as a teacher, a Juvenile Justice Probation Officer and a change maker. Did you know she started the Office on Youth in Orange County? She also initiated the work needed to

establish a Recreation Department there. Ann already has a track record of community activism. She is truly an advocate for families here in our district. Ann will listen to her constituents and Ann will fight for us in Richmond. She will do the hard work to get improved funding for rural school districts. She will fight for broadband infrastructure. She will work to make sure everyone, including the poorest among us, has access to affordable health care. Send someone to Richmond who isn’t building a financial war chest to run for national office. Vote for Ann Ridgeway on Nov. 5th!


Ridgeway is the right choice for 30th District I have been trying to stay out of the fray regarding the 30th District House of Delegates race. The half milliondollar donation from an out-of-state billionaire has pushed me to speak out. Do we really want our delegate to have his seat purchased for him by out-ofstate special interests? Let’s look at the facts. Nick Freitas failed to do his due diligence and check to see if his campaign paperwork was filed completely and on time. There are literally 21 other candidates on the November ballot in my precinct who all managed to properly file.

T R AV E L Visiting the bones of St. James In my last article, I introduced you to the Camino de Santiago, discussed some of my motivations for doing the pilgrimage, and described some of the training I did to prepare for the 500-mile walk. In this article, I’ll present a short history of the Camino. Like many other saint stories, the Camino story is wrapped in miracles and mysteries. Today, at the the cathedral in Santiago de Compostela, the relics (bones) of the Apostle James are housed. (‘Santiago’ actually means ‘St. James’ in the Galician language.) St. James was the brother of the Apostle John. Jesus called the two brothers the ‘sons of thunder.’ St. James is sometimes called ‘James the Greater’ to differentiate him from ‘James the Lesser’ who was the


Scott Richardson

half-brother of Jesus. James ‘the Lesser’ was Joseph’s son and led the Church in Jerusalem after Christ’s crucifixion. After Jesus was crucified, St. James reportedly went to Iberia (Spain) to share the Gospel. In Iberia, he converted some Iberians to the faith. At some point, Mary, the mother of Jesus, appeared to St. James in a vision or dream and requested that he return to Jerusalem, which he did. While back in Jerusalem, Herod Agrippa ordered that St. James be put under the sword and St. James was beheaded in 42 AD. He was the first of the Apostles to be martyred. At some point, the bones of St. James were brought back to Iberia, buried, and largely forgotten. In 814 CE, a monk named Pelagius, led by a bright star, found three buried bodies in a field in Galicia. Believing these bodies to be those of St. James and two of his disciples, he went to his bishop to plead his case. The bishop was convinced by Pelagius (Pelayo in Spanish) and the

bishop, in turn, went to the king for approval. (Nothing happened in those days without the approval of the king.) The king not only believed the bishop, but he became the first pilgrim, walking to the site himself where he proclaimed the relics to be those of St. James. Pilgrims began visiting the saint’s tomb shortly after 814, but the first fully documented pilgrimage was by a French bishop in 951. The number of pilgrims continued to grow through the next few centuries and grew to approximately 200,000-250,000 in the 12th and 13th centuries. One recent German study found that more than 20 percent of all Europeans did a pilgrimage to Santiago. The number grew in part because of the dangers of making a pilgrimage to the Holy Land (due to the Crusades). Travel to Rome also had its problems (expensive by sea, dangerous and lengthy by land). Despite being safer than other pilgrimages, the Camino was no picnic. The pilgrimage could take anywhere

from four months to four years. Of course, going on pilgrimage then meant that you also had to walk both ways. No hopping on a jet to get home in those days. Bandits and unscrupulous businessmen also made things difficult. Apparently the ferrymen who took pilgrims across the many rivers were particularly bad. The boats did not always arrive on the other side with the pilgrims still on them. The ferrymen then made off with the pilgrims’ goods. Pilgrims often traveled in groups of 30 or more to help manage all the risks. In the next article, I’ll start reporting on my pilgrimage which I began last week.

Jenkins addresses 287(g) program during recent Culpeper County Republican breakfast By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer Culpeper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins discussed the 287(g) program with visitors at the Culpeper County Republican breakfast Saturday, explaining the program and stressing its importance to the community. Jenkins had just returned from a trip to the White House where he joined 200 other sheriffs in bringing awareness to our border security crisis and sanctuary laws. The event was hosted by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) and allowed lawmakers and administration officials, Angel Families, and sheriffs to speak on personal experiences that affect their communities. “We are the last line of defense,” Jenkins said in relation to illegal immigration. Jenkins addressed a recent editorial by challenger C.J. Johnson, calling the research “shoddy” and pointing out the he

has a strong relationship with the Hispanic community in Culpeper. He pointed to meeting with day laborers recently and stressing the importance of reporting crimes as he is there to serve and protect them as well. “To say the Hispanic community doesn’t trust us is not true,” Jenkins said. “We don’t profile. Whether you are here legally or not, we are here to protect you.” He pointed out that the 287(g) program is not “street level” and that is a program in the jail to help identify who is here illegally and report them to ICE. He reiterated that four deputies are training and received 120 hours of training, all of it fully paid for by ICE. He explained the area that has been set up in the jail is a former closet space that consists of two computers, a desk and two chairs for deputies to conduct interviews with inmates as they enter the jail. Jenkins took questions from the residents assembled, totally about 65, and further addressed any issues they had with the program.

Weekly Tarotscope for Oct. 3: 6 Of Swords, Wheel Of Fortune

When presented with the 6 of Cara Cutro Swords we see a poignant time of transition. To the right of the boat you’ll notice that the water is a little turbulent compared to the clear, serene water to the left. This indicates that we are moving out of a challenging period. At it’s simplest, this card speaks to a transition that we aren’t able to fully understand or comprehend. Our limited thinking or mental processes won’t allow us to see exactly where this “boat” is headed. It’s a good thing that there’s help available. The 6 of Swords carries a suggestion of seeking help from a supportive individual who is able to see above our limited thinking. Sometimes the limited view that we have is because we are in grief or confusion. Maybe guilt. As bleak as this card may appear to be, it’s


a positive omen of moving forward away from difficulties or challenges. The 6 of Swords is heading right into the center of the Wheel of Fortune. This transition has a fated quality. The Wheel of Fortune generally speaks to positive outcomes and success. This pairing is quite promising. If you’ve gone through something particularly challenging and are moving away from that scenario, you will see positive results from this decision. Trusting in the process has gotten you this far. Continue to focus on remaining in alignment with what’s best for everyone involved. Cara Cutro is a spirit centered teacher and life coach residing in Sperryville, VA. She is an herbalist, massage therapist, reiki master, intuitive counselor, tarot reader, and the owner of Abracadabra Massage & Wellness and the Wisdomkeepers School. For a full list of services or to setup an appointment with her or one of her team members, book online or call 540878-7085.
