LOCAL NEWS Brat, Spanberger spar in Culpeper Chamber of Commerce debate ➤ Brat continues comparisions to Nancy Pelosi while Spanberger calls for 'unified district' By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer A vote for Abigail Spanberger is a vote for “the Nancy Pelosi liberal agenda,” said 7th District Congressman Dave Brat during a debate hosted by the Culpeper Chamber of Commerce Tuesday evening at Germanna Community College’s Daniel Technology Center. Multiple times during the debate, Brat referenced Spanberger’s alleged connection to Pelosi, to a raucous response from the split crowd at the first and possibly only debate between the rivals for the 7th District seat. “It’s disappointing to hear my opponent continue to misrepresent my positions,” Spanberger said following the hour and a half long debate. “Tonight, viewers saw and heard two very different visions for the 7th District - one focused on divisive rhetoric and even more divisite policies and my vision for a unified district focused on common-sense policies that provide our citizens with the opportunity to thrive.”

“What you just saw in that debate was two very different philosophies and views in what it means to represent the 7th District,” Brat said. “As I said over and over again through the debate what you saw on the Democratic side was a commitment to the Nancy Pelosi liberal agenda.” The incumbent and candidate clashed multiple times over healthcare, immigration, foreign policy, trade policy, federal debt and funding for education and gun policy. During the opening discussion on healthcare, Brat said “we need more competition, not less,” when it comes to healthcare in general and pharmaceutical companies in particular. It also marked his first reference to Pelosi, a theme that continued throughout the night. Spanberger agreed they need more competition but differed over the strategy pointing out she supports a public option. On immigration, Brat accused Spanberger of supporting sanctuary cities and wanting open borders, to which Spanberger responded that the country needs complete immigration reform. “I do not support safe havens,” she said, in a rebuttal to Brat’s discussion on the topic. Throughout the program, Brat pointed to his successes - “a boom-

Following the debate, the Republican National Committee praised Brat’s performance. “Virginians saw two visions for the future on stage in Culpeper tonight. Abigail Spanberger’s vision

is one of more government control, higher taxes, and an agenda more at home in San Fransisco than Richmond. Dave Brat’s vision for our future is one of continued economic growth and common sense policies that will keep our economy booming,” said Garren Shipley, RNC spokesman. The debate was the only one scheduled for the two opponents, but Brat said another was being discussed.

Performer killed during Air Fest sponsor show Airshow industry leaders have identified the pilot killed in Friday’s plane crash at the Culpeper Air Fest as Jon Thocker, co-owner and acrobatics pilot with Redline Airshows of Cincinnati. Thocker, a retired cargo jet pilot of 25 years, was performing an act with partner Ken Reider in two Van’s RV-8s aircraft when Thocker’s plane went down around 8:10 p.m. at Culpeper Regional Airport. The FAA, NTSB and state police are still investigating what caused the fatal crash. “He was well known in the airshow community, a wonderful person and friend who always loved to talk to everyone,” Airshow View 360 said of Thocker in a Facebook post. “He will be greatly missed. Our hearts and deepest condolences go out to his family and friends during this hard time.” The Culpeper Air Fest Committee acknowledged Thocker as the deceased pilot Monday afternoon. "By now many of you have read about the tragic accident that happened during the Friday night portion of the Culpeper Air Fest. While performing a thrilling night aerobatic act at our sponsor event, Jon Thocker’s life came to an unexpected end," the committee said in a statement. "His dedication and passion for flying has entertained thousands, including many of us in the Culpeper community. While we mourn Jon and keep his family and friends in our prayers, we are working closely with his family to determine how they would like Jon to be remembered." The Culpeper Air Fest went on as planned Saturday, Oct. 13, with the performers reaching a consensus to continue the show for the public. "As you know, we then pressed on to produce an incredible airshow for everyone on Saturday in Jon’s honor - one of our largest in history," the committee said. "Thank you again for all of your support over the years, and we hope to see you next year." Airshow News reported Thocker and Reider had recently unveiled the

He is a 14 year old freshman at Eastern View High School here in Culpeper. Kyle is many things. He is caring, supportive, honest, open minded, thoughtful, funny, dedicated, responsible, and resilient. Currently, Kyle is learning just how brave he is, too. He recently was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer that most often impacts teens and is also often misdiagnosed as a sports injury, as it was in Kyle’s case initially. Since learning of the true diagnosis, Kyle has faced cancer with bravery, even in times when he doesn’t feel brave. He will have to undergo difficult treatments over the upcoming months and he and his family will be traveling back and forth to UVA to obtain these treatments on a more than weekly basis. We are raising money to support Kyle and his family as they navigate this journey and fight against this rare cancer. We want to let Kyle and his family know that they don’t have to worry about paying for treatments, transportation, or anything Kyle might need over these upcoming months and this is a way we can help to mitigate some stress this family will undoubtedly encounter.

Van’s RV08 aircraft used in Friday night’s performance. Thocker’s aircraft was registered with the FAA on Oct. 2, 2017 and is listed as an amateur-built, experimental plane. Friday’s act include pyrotechnics, something the duo often used during night shows, Airshow News reported. A photo on Redlines Facebook page Oct. 8 showed Thocker loading fireworks for the Culpeper show. Thocker’s career as a pilot included flights around the world with DHL Air Cargo and test-piloting heavy-cargo flights. According to his biography in the Culpeper Air Fest program, Thocker had built 10 custom airplanes. Thocker and Reider had been flying in formation together for more than 12 years. Their performances featured opposing, inverted and formation maneuvers. The accident is the second fatal plane crash during the popular Culpeper Air Fest. In 2006, pilot Nancy Lynn was killed when her Extra Flugzeugbau GMBH 300, N168EX, crashed during the event.

Muhammad spreads strength to domestic violence survivors through her inspiring message By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer Mildred Muhammad is the picture of strength. The ex-wife of D.C. sniper John Muhammad, Mildred spoke Tuesday evening at the annual Culpeper Task Force on Domestic and Sexual Violence vigil - telling her harrowing tale and reminding the public to not blame the victims of domestic violence. “Domestic violence is a worldwide epidemic and unfortunately, it’s still continues to plague our

communities regardless of how the laws are set up,” Muhammad said. “I speak out to bring awareness to the 80 percent that do not have physical scars.” Muhammad’s story is one that the public in the D.C. beltway is familiar with - but at the same time probably do not fully comprehend. Everyone who lived in the Culpeper, Fredericksburg and Northern Virginia area in the fall of 2002 remembers the fear and anxiety when John Muhammad went on a ➤ See Muhammad, Page 5

BIZ BIO The People of Wellspring: Peter Lewis, LCSW When you think of “good health,” what comes to mind? Reaching your weight goal? Fewer aches and pains? More muscle? But what about how you’re feeling on the inside? Too often, we neglect our emotional health, and the results can be just as debilitating as any physical problem. Peter Lewis would like to change that dynamic. As Wellspring Health Service’s Behavioral Counselor and Therapist, Lewis wants to help people discover the strengths within themselves that can help them through challenging emotional times. “We all need somebody to talk to about our problems, and I’m a good listener,” Lewis said. “I enjoy using my strengths and insight to work with people to help them make life-changing decisions toward health and wellness.” Lewis, a licensed clinical social worker, brings more than seven years’ experience to the Wellspring team, having provided mental health services in Naples, Florida, before moving to the Culpeper area. At Wellspring, Lewis provides counseling and psychotherapy services to children, adolescents, and adults for conditions including depression, anxiety, attention-deficit/ hyperactivity disorder, obsessive-

compulsive disorder, adjustment disorders, and trauma. Lewis thinks the Wellspring environment is the ideal setting for his work. “Two values within the social Peter Lewis, LCSW work profession include respecting the dignity and worth of the individual and understanding the importance of human relationships,” Lewis said. “The integrated care model at Wellspring, with its strong focus on serving the community through an integrated team approach, is very consistent with those values.” Those social work values came naturally to Lewis at an early age. “As early as first grade, I had a strong conviction to help people and advocate for the underserved,” he said. “I befriended a girl who was being relentlessly bullied and teased, and I noticed how our friendship changed not just her own outlook, but the way she was treated by others. Everyone benefitted, and I was hooked. Social workers are change agents, and that can be powerful for those in need.”

➤ Muhammad, from Page 4 shooting spree in the south that led to 17 deaths. The intended target of those shootings was Mildred - who had, by that time, divorced John and had regained custody of her three children with him. She was in hiding in Maryland, living with her sister and brother-in-law when she was informed it was her ex-husband behind the killings. Her story started in Washington state, where the couple lived after John returned home from the 1991 Gulf War. “He wasn’t the same person,” Mildred said, explaining that before he left he was the life of the party, but when he returned he sat, sullen and rocking in his chair. They were married 12 years but she filed for divorce when he began cheating on her, and that’s when the abuse started. It started as controlling, changing her phone number, sneaking in at night into their apartment when he wasn’t living with her, eventually taking the kids and never returning them. She filed the proper paperwork but each time was told there was more she was supposed to do. The system failed her. He eventually took the children and left the country, ultimately going to Antigua where he met Lee

Boyd Malvo. All the while, Mildred fought to have her children returned to her and once they were able to locate them, they had an emergency custody meeting that she won. She took the children and hid, as John had threatened her life. While living in Maryland, she was approached by the FBI in October of 2002, asking when she last had contact with her husband. It was at that custody meeting, and she hadn’t heard from him since. It was then that the FBI and ATF informed her that her husband was the sniper, she was the target and she and her children had to hide. Shortly after, he was arrested, later convicted and ultimately executed. She sought help from counselors for her and her three children, but found no help. Instead, she taught herself to be a counselor and counseled her family. Now, her three children are grown - her son is a manager at a sunglasses hut and her daughters are singers - and she speaks out to help those who feel they don’t have a voice. “It’s no longer painful coming to speak out about it, my ultimate goal is to continue to bring awareness to domestic violence,” Muhammad said. “Women and children and men are dying and we need to

victims, instead of telling them what to do, ask victims “how can I help you?” “You don’t want to leave a victim out in the wilderness crying for help,” Muhammad said. “So often victims feel ashamed and guilty anyway. They don’t always reach out until the very last minute. You see Mr. Hyde, I’m dealing with Dr. Jekyll.” Following her presentation and the candlelight vigil, she met with victims, survivors and those going through domestic violence situations and comforted them.

Culpeper Cosmetology School Barbering Program teacher Antonio Yates works with student Karen Harris on a customer recently.

Barbering program prepares students to 'make the cut' By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer Career and technical education is the hot topic in the country right now, and Culpeper is one of the counties leading the charge - as evidenced by Culpeper Cosmetology School’s new barbering program. Started in June, the program - taught by instructor Antonio Yates of Antonio’s Classic Barber Spa - has three students already enrolled and is looking to continue to grow. Yates, who started cutting hair at a young age for his family and then parlayed that into a career in barbering, said that students who have an eye for art are the ones who are drawn to the barbering program. He said that’s what drew him to start cutting hair at age 14 and then to take classes at a barbering school in Greene County. Now, he works with the three new students from 5 to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Friday at the Cosmetology School to teach them tips of the trade. Karen Harris travels all the way from Fredericksburg to learn from Yates. She researched barbering schools and Culpeper’s was the closest to her. Culpeper’s barbering school is the only one offered in the area, with students otherwise having to travel to Northern Virginia or Richmond. “This is something I’ve always wanted to do, I was always fascinated by it,” Harris said. “I discovered the opportunity here and I wanted to take advantage of it and learn.” She said Yates has been teaching her the basics - how to use proper fading techniques, how to use a straight razor and how to interact with the customer to turn their vision into reality. “He’s a wonderful teacher, he makes it interesting and exciting,” Harris said. “He’s creative and very patient, which is very important. He’s very detail oriented and tries to train my eye to see the details, because that’s what

makes it all beautiful in the end.” Yates said that barbering itself is making a comeback, as customers are looking for more of an experience than just a haircut. He referenced the straight razor as a technique customers are requesting now. “That’s something that’s coming back,” Yates said of the straight razor. “It’s a lost art. “When you make it an experience, it’s going to be relaxing,” Yates said. “When you have them laid back and comfortable, they’re sold.” In addition to men’s haircuts, barbers can also do some women’s cuts, and kids are interested in design work. He said longer styles like the pompadour - are making a comeback. That’s where the eye for art comes into play. The cost for the program is $1,800 with $1,650 counting toward tuition and the rest going toward supplies, books and tools. The program takes 1,100 hours to complete which equates to about a year and a half of the 20-hour class weeks. Students are allowed to use PELL Grants and Stafford Loans, and Culpeper Cosmetology School director Sue Hansohn said that 80 percent of their students use financial aid. Once the students have completed their hours in the school, Hansohn said, they then have to sit for the state exam which is a twopart test - a written portion and then the practical hair cutting test. The Cosmetology School has 45 students a year come through the doors and the success they’ve had is what draws people to the school. “We send people to salons because they need people, we can guarantee them they will get a job,” Hansohn said. Hansons said students come from Fredericksburg, Charlottesville and even Harrisonburg to learn at the Cosmetology School. Mens haircuts are offered at the barbering school from 5 to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Friday for $10 and other services are available. Veterans haircuts are free on Wednesdays. To learn more about the school, call 727-8003.

Girls in Aviation Day prepares students for careers in aviation By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer Girl power was front and center at the Girls in Aviation Day at the Culpeper Air Fest Saturday morning. More than 100 young women, ages 8-17, toured booths at the Airport prior to the 19th annual Air Fest - learning about professions in aviation. Kelly Murphy, Director of Communications and Editor-in-Chief for Aviation for Women magazine, smiled broadly as she greeted the girls lining up at the 8:30 sessions. This marked the fourth year for Girls in Aviation Day - held internationally - but hosted for the first time at the Culpeper Air Fest. The girls learned about various professions in aviation - engineering, pilots, mechanics, air traffic controllers, Coast Guard and more from a staff of volunteers. “There are so many job opportunities in aviation, not just a need for pilots - mechanics, air traffic controllers, aircraft engineers and what we want to do through Women in Aviation is to reach out to girls ages 8 to 17 and let them see all the opportunities,” Murphy said. Women in Aviation provides $500,000 in scholarships each year to students going to college to study disciplines associated with aviation. Murphy said the Girls in Aviation Day focused on networking and mentoring, helping match girls interested in certain fields with professionals. “Our day is dedicated to having all these different stations where they can meet female engineers, pilots, mechanics and female drone pilots,” Murphy said. “It’s about them seeing positive role models and being able to ask questions.” Murphy, the daughter of late Culpeper pilot JJ Quinn, said it only made sense to host the Girls in Aviation Day at the Culpeper Air Fest. Last year they were based in Manassas, but outgrew the program there. Dovetailing the day with the Air Fest was a perfect marriage, she said. “We hope to remain here for many reasons,” Murphy said. “To have our event during an airshow is amazing.” Girls in Aviation Day was featured at 95 events throughout the world involving 15,000 girls. The Capital Region Chapter, for which Murphy has been a part of for more than 20 years, has about 200 members. She said that without the involvement of her father, she probably would not have been interested in aviation - and that is the role she is trying to fill for the young women involved with Girls in Aviation Day. “It’s a gentle push, so we feel like we’re very supportive,” Murphy said. The day started with the first group taking to the tarmac to fly model airplanes with the Culpeper Model Barnstormers, paired up with a “buddy” but giving the girls a firsthand experience of piloting a RC plane. They then moved into the Girls in Aviation tent where they met professionals like Amerre Deiters, with United Airlines, and

David Boyd, from Battlefield High School’s robotics team Ilite Robotics, clapped as young girls showed an interest in coding robots. “By getting them early, we get them focused, they get a little experience as they go into college,” Boyd said. “It’s the young ones that really inspire me and that I love working with the most. I think when they are at this age, they get so excited with everything they can do. That’s the big thing, letting them realize they have the potential to do what they want to do.” He said the goal is to make STEM as accessible to children as youth sports is, and remarked that it's important to get young women involved and explain to them the significance of women in the technology field pointing out one of his role models is Grace Hopper, an American computer scientist and United States Navy rear admiral. Across the tent, Melinda Viterri with the Aviation Youth Mentoring Program from Washington, D.C. looked on as her students worked with girls to teach them how to fly on an FAA approved flight simulator. Purchased for the group by the Royal Aeronautical Society for approximately $10,000, the flight simulator is as realistic as it gets teaching aspiring pilots how to check gauges, adjust the throttle, take off and land. “For me it’s like the center of my life to make sure we can inspire the next generation and offer them a great flight opportunity,” Viterri said. Ariana M. Yactayo, 15, a sophomore at Seton Home Study School, said she will cherish the opportunity she received to learn from strong women. “I really enjoyed Girls in Aviation Day at the Culpeper Air Fest on Saturday; the people involved with the event were utterly kind, helpful, and open,” Yactayo said. “I think it was greatly important to see strong, positive, diverse, female role models in STEM because more girls could relate with their skills and goals, and have a deeper understanding of things - it really enhanced the experience we had with all of the activities and stations."

HISTORY Story of William Grayson: Part 3 Last week I left you with a summary of William Grayson’s predicament. On April 4th, 1849, Grayson had visited the store of Settle and Miller in the Jefferson District of Culpeper County to pay his account and retrieve his tools. He was about twenty cents short and was sent away. After borrowing the funds needed he returned to the store, was given a receipt and his tools. The transcript of the trial is a bit fuzzy on whether he got both of his tools. This is not a novel although it could be. For now we do not have the ink to provide every detail. The transcript goes on to report that a group of fellows met at the store

ZANN’S PLACE Zann Nelson

where the deceased slept and played marbles until dark. Witnesses indicate that Grayson was seen later to be drinking and who was heard to claim that he had “lost” the tools. More to the record, he had put them down and could not remember where. On the morning of April 5th John Settle returned to the store as was his practice; the door was open, and David Miller was found dead under the platform in front of the store. According to the testimony, six or seven pairs of ladies’ shoes were missing, about twenty dollars of silver coin was gone, though a few were found strewn about on the floor, and Grayson’s tools were not there. The police were notified, and an investigation immediately started. A crowd of neighbors gathered and among them was William Grayson. Grayson was interrogated, arrested and charged with murder. Friends of the deceased hired an attorney (unnamed) to assist the

Commonwealth Attorney with prosecution and Grayson was represented by the firm of Cabell and Bouldin of Richmond, Virginia. According to the court records, the witness list and the effort to supply a substantial chain of evidence was detailed. A jury trial was held in June 1849 and Grayson was convicted and sentenced to “hang by the neck until dead.” The defense entered a motion to set aside the verdict and order a new trial. The motion was overruled by Judge Richard Field. An appeal on behalf of Grayson was sent to the Supreme Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia and heard at the December term 1849. The case is well detailed in the book Cases Decided in the Supreme Court of Appeals of Virginia, Volume 47. The higher court reported the following: “The evidence is plainly insufficient to warrant the verdict. The verdict, moreover is in some material respects, against the proofs, or inconsistent with them.” The majority opinion read, “Judgement reversed, verdict set aside, and cause remanded

for a new trial.” Cases Decided in the Supreme Court of Appeals of Virginia, Volume 47 (can be found online). A second trial was held in June of 1850. A new jury was seated and again convicted Grayson of the murder and sentenced him to death. Again, a motion was made to set aside and hold a new trial; again, it was overruled and again, an appeal was heard in the June term of the Supreme Court of Appeals. The only new evidence the higher court noted was in favor of the defendant. The again held for reversing the decision and ordered a new trial. All the while Grayson is incarcerated in the Culpeper jail. Stay tuned for exactly why the higher court thought there was insufficient evidence to convict Grayson. Until next week, be well.

TECHNOLOGY Unexpected outcomes pushing the limits of flight and space DATA DUMP

This past weekend in Culpeper was filled with both tragedy and triumph. The annual Culpeper Air Fest suffered tragedy as a pilot lost his life performing acrobatics for the crowd Friday evening, but there was triumph, as the pilots and community came together on Saturday to put on a spectacular show and honor their fellow pilot. From the time I was a young child, I’ve been enamored by flight. My dad worked in avionics for the majority of his 20+ year career in the Marine Corps and continued in that same field as a civilian. I earned my private pilot’s license in 2008, so flying has always been some part of my life directly or indirectly. After all the events of this packed weekend, I started wondering what

John Barker

types of technology have become staples of our everyday lives because of our desire to explore flight and test our limits. In 1976, NASA, started an annual publication called, Spinoff. This publication has over 2,000 items that have become commercial products as a result of NASA research projects. Let’s clear up a few things first. NASA cannot take credit for inventions that have become urban legends over time, including the orange drink TANG, Velcro straps, space pens, cordless power tools, or Teflon. But NASA did work with other companies, such as Black & Decker, to create the first portable cordless vacuum to collect samples from the surface of the moon. For the full listing, I encourage you to check out the NASA Spinoff website and JPL (Jet Propulsion Laboratory) infographic. A few samples: Infrared Ear Thermometers - NASA and Diatek Corporation used similar infrared technology to measure the temperature of planets and stars to

measure how much energy comes out of the ear drum. Camera Phones - A team of scientists at JPL (Jet Propulsion Laboratory) worked to create small cameras in the 1990s that could fit on spacecraft. Athletic Shoes - NASA engineers were looking for rubber molding for the helmets that astronauts use. A NASA engineer was the first to suggest the idea of using the molding as a shock absorber for shoes. Foil Blankets - The foil blankets that are given out at the end of marathons were first developed for use in space. Baby Formula- This one might not be much of a shocker, but NASA research was looking for a nutritional element that could withstand long space flights. Highways- NASA worked out a method to reduce aircraft running off of runways by creating grooved payment. This method has also been integrated in major highways to channel water of the road greatly reducing car accidents. Invisible Braces- This is one of the

craziest unexpected outcomes. NASA was working on technology to help track missiles and ended up creating a component that is stronger than steel and can also straighten your teeth. I write this in the miniscule hopes of convincing the skeptics out there that say we can’t afford these types of programs or its too risky. Skeptics may argue that NASA has no practical value or going to the moon or shooting for Mars is science fiction hogwash with no real benefit for humanity. Look down at the shoes on your feet and the cell phone in your hand as evidence of what boundary pushing can have on your life. Now imagine a future where we are trying to get to Mars, a fuel is developed that is infinitely more efficient and pollutant free than anything we have used to date, or scientists create a method of terraforming Mars, making it more hospitable. I am sure we will find practical applications for that here on Earth. Seems worth it to me, what do you think?

POWER OF PINK Physical therapy: A helping hand for cancer survivors October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and it is also National Physical Therapy Month. How appropriate that these coincide, as the role of a physical therapist becomes ever more important to breast cancer survivors. It is estimated that one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. A staggering number to contemplate, but the good news is that with the continuing advances in oncology diagnostics and treatments, it means there are so many more survivors. No doubt your physician has your best interests in mind, from diagnosis to discharge — but you should always be a self advocate. Do your research and your homework. The trend is moving towards more pre-surgical

care, as well as post-surgical care, for cancer patients across the board. Not only should you be educated about the possible adverse effects of concurrent radiation and chemotherapy treatments, but findings indicate that you should employ exercise throughout your course of treatment to help minimize these effects. A physical therapist can help you develop a program to help maintain your strength, endurance and balance prior to surgery. Education regarding prevention of lymphedema before surgery and hands-on care afterwards can be crucial to maximizing your wellbeing and lifestyle during your recovery. Other complications can arise from your treatment including muscle weakness, myelopathies, peripheral neuropathies, musculoskeletal imbalances, scar tissue restrictions, frozen shoulder and chronic pain are just a few problems that physical therapists are educated to help you with. If you need more specialized

care, they may refer you to a specialist in this area. Manual therapy for the post-surgical breast cancer patient, whether you have had a mastectomy, lumpectomy or surgical reconstruction, can be crucial to complete recovery and return to full function. So what if my doctor didn’t recommend therapy, you may be thinking? Please be proactive and discuss referral to physical therapy with your physician as physical therapy is becoming more widely recognized by doctors and insurance companies as an integral component to a more complete recovery. If you have difficulty, the great news is that most states in the U.S., including Virginia, allow direct access to physical therapy services. That means, that if you have any questions or concerns, you can go directly to a physical therapist for evaluation and treatment for up to one month without a doctor’s referral and most insurances will cover your

treatment. If you need immediate referral to a physician or need therapy beyond thirty days, your therapist will seek authorization from your physician or surgeon. Mountainside Physical Therapy and Lakeside Manual Physical Therapy offer two convenient locations and we are here to help you. Please do not hesitate the to contact us. Physical therapy is a restorative and palliative treatment option to help you regain control of your life and your body. Please remember, any cancer survivor who should have any new onset of pain should be evaluated by their physician, secondary to the possibility of metastasis, so don’t wait until it is too late! And don’t forget, early detection depends on you! Mountainside Physical Therapy, 12625 Lee Highway, Washington, Va. 540987-9390.

Pamper Me Pink to be held Oct. 23 Tuesday, Oct. 23 marks the date for Novant Health UVA Health System Culpeper Medical Center’s 13th annual Pamper Me Pink event in partnership with Pepperberries, a Culpeper gift and fashion boutique. The event is a social gathering and educational experience in one, focusing on women’s health and the importance of self-care, both in the form of regular breast exams and more enjoyable “pampering.” “When we launched Pamper Me Pink in 2005, little did we know this event would become an annual tradition in our community to support women and awareness of breast cancer,” said Sharon Welch Clark, owner of Pepperberries. “I am honored to co-host our 13th Pamper Me Pink event and encourage community members to join us Oct. 23 to enjoy an evening of pampering while raising money to fund breast cancer treatment for women and men who can’t afford it.” Pamper Me Pink attendees will be treated to an evening of pampering – including chair massages and hand wax treatments – as well as refreshments, entertainment and door prizes. In the spirit of raising both awareness and support, a panel of cancer survivors will share their stories during the event. A breast health navigator and other women’s health practitioners from the medical center will be available to speak with women

about breast health during the event. The mobile mammography coach of Novant Health UVA Health System will be onsite that evening for mammogram appointments. For pre-registration, please call 703.369.8421. “This great event supports women’s health initiatives in the Culpeper community,” said Jeff Hetmanski, president and chief operating officer of Novant Health UVA Health System Culpeper Medical Center. “We are pleased to once again co-host this event with Pepperberries and to illuminate the importance of regular breast cancer screenings. Our goal is to educate the community and showcase our commitment to women’s health by hosting a fun, lively event for those who are affected by breast cancer, supporting a loved one with breast cancer or simply want more information on screenings, diagnosis and treatment.” Proceeds from the evening will benefit the Pamper Me Pink Mammography Fund, which provides financial assistance to women and men in need of mammograms or follow-up screenings. “One of the most rewarding parts of this event is being able to fund life-saving mammogram services for community members in need,” said Clark. “We’re grateful that our partnership with Novant Health UVA Health System allows us to offer this valuable service to those who need it.”

Tuesday, Oct. 23, 2018 5 to 8:45 p.m.

OCT. 18 FILM •“Dracula” (Universal, 1931) “An Evening of Folk, Blues, Soul and Rock Highlights from ‘Soundstage’” (1974-1982) “Soundstage” is a live concert television series produced by WTTW Chicago and distributed by PBS. The original series aired between 1974 and 1985; it was revived in 2003 and is still being produced. Emphasizing live performances, “Soundstage” presented a dramatic contrast to the way music had been televised until that point when variety shows (such as “The Ed Sullivan Show”) and lip-synched cabaret shows (such as “The Andy Williams Show”) were the norm.

This unique program curated from the television archive of the Library of Congress features performances by Jackie Wilson, Muddy Waters, Bob Dylan, Randy Newman, Ry Cooder, Jackson Browne, Al Green, Dr. John, Doc & Merle Watson, Leonard Cohen, Jesse Winchester, Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, John Prine, Tom Waits, Phoebe Snow & David Bromberg, Don Williams, Waylon Jennings, Etta James, Graham Parker, The Blasters and Tina Turner. Digital presentation, approximately 90 min. Free, at the Library of Congress Packard Campus Theater located at 19053 Mt. Pony Rd. in Culpeper, VA. No reservations taken.

FILM •“Dracula” (Universal, 1931) Bela Lugosi's portrayal of Dracula defined the ultimate vampire characterization for decades to follow, and the actor made a career of it, both on screen and on stage. Director Tod Browning referenced Bram Stoker's 1897 novel and subsequent stage plays, including a 1927 Broadway production starring Lugosi, to inform his cinematic approach to the legend. Browning, cinematographer Karl Freund and art director Charles D. Hall created an eerie gothic atmosphere to frame Lugosi's performance. Dwight Frye is memorable as Dracula's creepy minion Renfield. Unusually, “Dracula” did not have a specific score written for it and only two pieces of music are on its soundtrack: Tchaikovsky's “Swan Lake” during the opening credits, and the overture of Wagner's “Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg” during a scene at an opera. S35mm print produced by the Library of Congress Film Preservation lab in 1984, 73 min. Free, at the Library of Congress Packard Campus Theater located at 19053 Mt. Pony Rd. in Culpeper, VA. No reservations taken.

Dave Brat deserves re-election Dave Brat, congressman from the 7th District of Virginia, is now running for his third two year term to represent his constituents. He initially ran on the following creed and has never wavered: 1. The Free enterprise system is the most productive supplier of human needs. 2. All individuals are entitled to equal rights, justice, and opportunities to improve themselves. 3. All levels of government must have budgetary restraint and fiscal responsibility. 4. The Federal Government must preserve individual liberty by observing the Constitution. 5. Peace is best preserved through a strong military. 6. Faith in God is essential to the oral fiber of our nation. I find it highly improbable that any rational person can argue against any of these principles; however, there is a minority of people who have continued to criticize Mr. Brat with the usual liberal rhetoric and talking points even to the point of disrupting and interrupting his attempts to meet with and civilly discuss the issues of our day at town hall meetings. Some of their disturbances have reached such a fevered pitch that a pastor was cussed as he spoke for an invocation. Mr. Brat no longer schedules these meetings since those who would loudly criticize him without his rebuttal would continue to show up and make a mockery of it all since they have nothing to offer other than loud rants and raves. Dave Brat deserves to be re-elected. Under the Republican controlled Congress, our economy has absolutely exploded with low unemployment at all levels including Blacks, Hispanic, and Women. These results are due to the Republicans passing the Tax Cut Bill. Virginians, indeed, are getting to keep more of their money. The stock market

HOW I SEE IT

Dr. Tom Neviaser

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Re-elect Congressman Dave Brat on Nov. 6 There is currently a political ad on TV and the internet that features a Goochland Mother talking about her son’s diabetes. As a Mother myself, I think it is despicable for any Mother to exploit their own child for ANY reason, much less political gain! In the ad she shows very personal pictures of her ailing son. I know all about Diabetes

continues to improve, and America is now in so much better financial shape than the previous administration's dreadful attempts. Dave Brat has worked extremely hard in order to be sure his 7th District's constituents are well cared for as well as all Virginians. The average family now has $2000 more to spend. Small businesses are using the tax cuts to hire new employees, to increase pay, and buy new equipment. He has always supported fiscal responsibility, smaller government, and cutting government waste. “As more money moves through our economy, more value is created, and we will continue to see even more economic growth. The common-sense thing to do, then, is to make these tax cuts permanent.” Dave Brat's statement as he voted on the floor of the House September 28, 2018. Recently, Congressman Brat voted on two additional pieces of legislation (the Family Savings Act and the American Innovation Act) that work to put more money back in the hands of people who best know how to spend it. This latest round of tax reform included Mr. Brat's bill to create Universal Savings Accounts to help people increase their family savings to help meet needs when they arise. He voted to adopt a resolution that says that allowing non-citizens the right to vote devalues and dilutes the voting power of United States Citizens. As the chairman of the Constitution Caucus, he will continue to fight to uphold our Constitution. However, Ms. Spanberger, the Democrat challenger, would vote to decrease, if not eliminate, these individual tax cuts and follow the Democrat playbook by increasing taxes to pay for flawed and disastrous policies such as universal healthcare and free college tuition. She will support big government interference in our daily lives. Obamacare's failure would look trivial up against universal healthcare. Our economy, now humming along the 3.5 -4% GDP, would collapse to the level of the previous administration. Along with this, Ms. Spanberger would also support open borders, deadly

as I grew up with 2 immediate family members that were insulin dependent diabetics. I had to understand how and why a Mother would use her own child like that, so I did some research on the House Resolution that was featured for the ad’s tag line “Brat voted against protections for preexistingconditions.” False. The fact is that Congressman Brat voted to protect people with pre-existing conditions as part of the Republican health care plan. He

MS-13-like gang members crossing the border, sanctuary cities and possibly a sanctuary state, and the elimination of ICE, Immigration Customs and Enforcement! In fact, 61 Democrats just petitioned the President to import 5 times more refugees to America than planned. Virginia and many other states will become less safe as a result. Congressman Brat is vehemently against any of these ludicrous ideas to weaken America. Ms. Spanberger as well as Tim Kaine would proceed to fall into lock step the senior Democrat colleagues and resist President Trump's agenda. The Democrats have poured an enormous amount of outside money into defeating Dave Brat because they need a comrade to obstruct, delay, and bring down an administration that is actually getting things done that the Democrats won't and can't. Should the Democrats succeed in taking the House of Representatives, Maxine Waters will be the Chairwoman of the House Finance Committee, controlling ALL banking issues. Ms. Waters has proven time and again her contempt for President Trump and VP Pence and their ideas, and, being in a powerful position in the House, our nation's economy will suffer tremendously. This mid-term election is like none we have ever seen. It is a clash of Good vs Evil for the country's existence. President Trump and Dave Brat are people who want the entire nation to prosper whereas the opposition has already said they only to take down President Trump, regain power to institute terribly disastrous policies, then obstruct any progress for the next two years and hope they win in 2020. It is absolutely imperative that people who believe in those principles above get out and vote Nov. 6. Please, for the sake of our district, our state, and our country, register to vote and vote Republican! Let's send Dave Brat to Congress to continue his dedicated work under these principles because our country's future DOES depend on it. We just can't regress back to the past errant devastating Democrat programs of tax and spend and destroy.

attempted to explain that vote to his constituents at a town hall meeting in Chesterfield where Abigail Spanberger sat in the front row, as protestors from her side disrupted the meeting and turned it into a useless circus. I don’t understand how anyone can vote for a candidate who would approve an ad of a Mother exploiting her own son. It is shameful. Barbara Sloan Maidens

STC’S 'Comedy…' One hit, no errors If Shakespeare saw identical twins as proof that God wants us to laugh, what would he do with two sets of identical twins? Write “The Comedy of Errors” of course. The Greatest Poet in the English Language wasn’t above swiping ideas left and right – everyone was doing it – he just improved on them. In this case, he “borrowed” from Plautus, the ancient Roman comedy writer who also thought twins and identity mixups were hilarious. Under the wizardly direction of Alan Paul, STC’s production whisks us off to Ephesus, which looks remarkably like Greece in those old Melina Mercouri movies complete with Zorba’s Seafood joint, “Girls! Girls! Girls!”, and a yellow Vespa. Opening with Michael Dansicker’s original full company song and Karma Camp’s dance, “The Comedy of Errors” begins the STC 2018-2019 season – and the final season with renowned artistic director, Michael Kahn.

But that was thirtythree years ago, and the merchant of Syracuse, Egeon, is searching for the lost twin brothers of his son and son’s servant who were separated from him in the unfortunate accident. Even more unfortunate is the trade war between Syracuse and Ephesus with Egeon caught in the middle under a death threat. A ransom will fix that, however, and he has until sundown to raise it. This gives the play a ticking clock urgency as twin brothers, Antipholus and their men servants, Dromio, find themselves in Ephesus, each not knowing that his long lost twin is also there. The wife of one will lock herself in the bedroom with the other while her real husband bangs on the gate outside. The servant of one will receive regular beatings for not doing what the other instructed his twin to do. All will begin to question

their own sanity – or the sanity of the town. Real twins have never been necessary to carry out the illusion. Similar builds, features, bearings, and identical costumes did the trick with Gregory Wooddell and Christian Conn as the two Antipholuses and Carson Elrod and Carter Gill as the twin Dromios. Strong physical comedy and precision timing make this the wittiest offering on the D.C. stage scene right now, and every detail ramps up the laugh factor. Angelo, the goldsmith for instance. Played by Tom Story, he is a one-man Miss America contest. Antipholus of Ephesus has ordered a gold necklace to appease his wife, Adriana, (Veanne Cox) but the necklace is handed over to the wrong Dromio of Antipholus of Syracuse.

officers, tailor, merchants, loungers in doorways, etc., but even they are gripped by the accelerating pace of madness and confusion in just under 100 minutes. James Noone’s scene design ingeniously evokes a complete, if slightly crazed, Mediterranean town on one large rotating platform. The Fashion Shop, a church, Zorba’s Seafood, the Police Dept., Antipholus’s home, etc. are all clean-lined arches and sandy greys arranged in a circle, then turn inside out to become other streets and alleys of the town. It’s a concept that subtly echoes the theme of twinship, two faces out of one name. The convent will be the balancing point of the climax, for when one set of twins seeks sanctuary from the maddened townsfolk, the Abbess appears in the doorway to bring sanity and peace. It’s no spoiler to mention that knots will be untied and all will be revealed, because that’s how Shakespeare’s comedies are resolved. But it is an extra treat to see Nancy Robinette (the Abbess) and Ted van Griethuysen (Egeon), two of the most acclaimed actors on the regional stage, reunited again.

ASWB participated in beautification project for town Association of Social Work Boards staff participated in a beautification project as part of our annual weeklong Green Challenge week. Employees of the Association of Social Work Boards, a nonprofit based in Culpeper that serves social work regulatory boards across North America, helped the Town Planning Department and members of the Old Rag Master Naturalists to do weeding and transplanting in the pollination garden at Yowell Meadow Park after heavy rains took their toll. The project is part of the association’s annual Green Challenge Week designed by the staff-led Green Team to promote sustainability through reusing, repurposing, recycling, and supporting local products and businesses. As part of ASWB’s Green Challenge Week, the association made a donation to the Town of Culpeper Department of Planning and Economic Development to purchase a Fringe tree for Rockwater Park. ASWB CEO Mary Jo Monahan and Chief Operating Officer Dwight Hymans presented the donation to Salem Bush, principal planner, and Emma Buchanan, planner, at ASWB’s office on Southridge Parkway.
