Ignite the City unites the community The sixth annual Ignite the City will be held at Yowell Meadow Park Nov. 3 from 1 to 6 p.m. The event, sponsored by His Village Church and the Town of Culpeper Police Department will feature a bumper ball tournament, a memorial lantern release, live music, food trucks, giveaways and youth activities. His Village Pastor Erick Kalenga said the idea for Ignite the City started six years ago as a way to answer some of the darkness that underlies the holiday of Halloween. The initial plan of Ignite the City was to be held on Halloween to shine a light on a traditionally “dark” holiday, to show the light of God was at work on the holiday as well. Over time, it has evolved to move off of Halloween and to include concerns the community is facing. This year, the themes are hope and unity. The motto this year is: “We see you, We hear you, We care.” “Ignite the City wants to unite folks,” Kalenga said. “We live in kind of a divided atmosphere. Not only are our churches divided, our community is divided but at the same time we have to find a way to put our differences aside and find things that unite us.” Two of those things that should unite the community is a commitment to raise awareness of youth suicide and drug addiction. Both have become epidemics over the past 10 years and the mission of Ignite the City is to give teenagers hope in a dark time. The memorial lantern release is especially targeted at teens that have lost their lives to addiction and depression. “That’s why we’re going to do the memorial lantern release, because we’ve lost some young people right

have evolved over the years,” Kalenga said. “To me it’s vital that we really partner with our local law enforcement agencies. We want to build a trust. We don’t want to be afraid of the police, we want to respect each other and build those relationships.” The Culpeper County Sheriff ’s Office will also be on hand as well as several emergency rescue agencies as well. Many addiction and suicide prevention coalitions will be on hand to speak and provide support including Team Jordan, Overdose Awareness Coalition, Living the Dream Foundation and the Rusty Bowers Suicide Prevention Coalition. “Hopefully if there was someone considering suicide, we can change their mind and show them there is hope on the other side,” Kalenga said.

While remembrance and awareness are key components, Kalenga stressed that another key component is fun - a way to help teenagers interact with their community.

VOTE “YES” TO QUESTION #3 Protect your county reserve. It’s your protection from emergency tax increase should the county have an unforeseen big need for money. Paid for by the Community for Improving the Quality of Life in Culpeper


Community meeting on rec center well-balanced ➤ Referendum question 3 discussed by opponents, proponents prior to Nov. 6 By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer Does Culpeper County need a community recreation center? That was the question tackled during a community meeting, hosted by the Culpeper County Republican Committee, to discuss the referendum on the ballot for Culpeper County voters Nov. 6. The question on the ballot - question 3 - will read: “Shall Culpeper County, Virginia contract a debt and issue its general obligation bonds in the maximum principal amount of $13,144,000 for the purpose of paying the costs, in whole or in part, for construction of a Community Recreation Center, which may include an indoor competition swimming pool, a therapy pool, a multi-purpose gymnasium, fitness equipment, exercise class space, classrooms for various activities, and a soccer field, as well as necessary access, parking, and utility improvements?" Representatives from both viewpoints - for and against the referendum - spoke to more than 100 community members who were looking for more information and to clear up common misconceptions about the proposed community center. One group contended that community center will cause real estate taxes to increase, while a group supporting the center - the Committee for Improving Quality of Life in Culpeper


The Culpeper Republican Committee held a public meeting Oct. 29 at the Brandy Station Fire Hall to discuss the proposed community recreation center. The proposed center is the topic of referendum question 3, that asks if the county should take out a $13.1 bond loan to pay for the recreation center, which would then be run by a third party. - pointed out that the referendum will not cause real estate taxes to rise. Culpeper County Administrator John Eggertson was quoted in several presentations as as saying “we can pay for the Community Center without tax impact if revenues continue at their current level.” The key phrase, Steve Fisher of the Jeffersonton District - an opponent of the community center, said is if revenues continue at their current level. He questioned why the county and the taxpayers were being asked to foot the bill and wondered if alternative fundraising could be utilized to help fund the center. Fisher said the Eggertson has given out conflicting information on how much it could up costing Culpeper County, with Fisher saying it could reach the $19 million mark which

would could cost a resident as high as $1,259. Longtime Culpeper County High School lacrosse coach Scott Found, owner of Found and Sons Funeral Home, spoke in favor of the community center - at one point poignantly pointing out that if the center saves him from “writing one more obit for a 14-year-old” then it’s worth it. One of the point of contentions among opponents was that county residents would still have to pay a fee for the YMCA - that it is not free as many have assumed. If the YMCA were manage the building - they were the only entity to fill out a request for information with the county and the Board of Supervisors created a sample memorandum of understanding with the YMCA - Rappahannock Area YMCA CEO

Barney Reilly confirmed that county residents would have to pay a fee to use the YMCA, but that they do have a sliding scale for residents who have financial hardships. The estimated monthly family membership is $90 for a full price cost, $60 for those making $60,000 or less and $54 for senior citizens. The other concern was that if the YMCA manages the facility, it will cause businesses like Gold’s Gym, Crossfit Culpeper and other Culpeper Wellness Foundation to lose money. Reilly said that the YMCA has coexisted with other fitness facilities in King George, Stafford and Caroline counties and expected the same scenario in Culpeper County. Others disagreed.

➤ Center, from Page 4 Board of Supervisor, spoke out about the YMCA. He said Caroline County gifted the YMCA the land and building in the most densely populated area of Caroline and then haven’t had any interactions since with the organization. He warned Culpeper County residents to beware of the same pitfalls Caroline County faced. “We as a board made poor decisions,” Sili said. “They (the YMCA) didn’t have a sliding income scale for two years. I caution this agreement needs to be made public to county residents.” Jack Frazier, the Cedar Mountain District representative for the Culpeper County Board of Supervisors, listened to the presentations and then answered questions as a citizen from the public assembled. He was not acting as a member of the BOS and only he and East Fairfax supervisor

Steve Walker were in attendance at the meeting - both stressed they were there only as citizens and not members of the board of supervisors. On Tuesday, Committee for Improving Quality of Life in Culpeper spokesperson Ian Phillips filed an official complaint with Culpeper County Attorney Bobbi Jo Alexis that Frazier and Walker were presenting themselves as supervisors when they should not have been - violating the code of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Community concerns included the lack of public transportation to the proposed facility in the Catalpa District, with many agreeing that there is a public need for teenagers but showing concern about how to shuttle them to the proposed center and how that would affect public funding. Others, like Kurt Christensen of the Stevensburg District, pointed to the Culpeper County Library and how

it was all privately funded to be built and did not cost the county a penny. Clive Richmond, of the Salem District, asked Frazier and Walker “if you have so much of my money laying around, why don’t you give it back?” Christian Hines, also of the Salem District, asked if the project fails, who is on the hook? Frazier explained the county would own the building and if the YMCA would manage it and close it, the county would own the building and the land. Paul Bates, of the Catalpa District, said he wasn’t sure a YMCA is what the community needs. “We need to focus on the kids who are in need,” he said. Jim Howard, a member of the King George YMCA board and a Culpeper native, spoke about the values of the YMCA and how every second grader in King George receives swim lessons at the Y, explaining that the YMCA

fills needs that the community might not even realize. Marshall Keene, who helped organize the meeting, stressed that it was to be an open discussion with input from both sides to help inform the public. He said his opinion is one that is not for the project, but stressed everyone’s opinion needed to be heard. “With an indoor, Olympic-size competition pool being a cornerstone of the proposed Culpeper Family YMCA project, I don’t feel that it serves the majority of the families of Culpeper County who want a Recreational style pool to use in the summer months,” Keene said. “As a taxpayer, I do not think any government should force any individual to pay for something they will not use. Perhaps Culpeper County has a piece of property that they could assist a future association with a building site for both a competition and family style pool.”

➤ After school club helps students learn how to make their own video games By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer A.G. Richardson Elementary School’s technology club is hoping to make the next Super Mario Bros. The after school club, headed by Instructional Technology Resource Teacher Matt Ortman, is using a program called Bloxels to teach third through fifth graders how to create their own video game character, background and ultimately their own full game. Acquired through a grant by Culpeper County Public Schools offered by Aerojet Rocketdyne, the Bloxels kits - which cost $175 for a box - include eight colored cubes, a 13x13 board and instructions for using an application that connects to the school’s iPads. The rest is up to the imagination of the students. “They use these cubes to build a character, or they build a scene or they can build a component within a scene,” Ortman said. On a recent Tuesday, the club - which meets every other week for 45 minutes was a bustling video game think tank. Kids

shared ideas, helped each other with lining up their characters to have them scanned onto the iPad and giggled at each other’s creations. The students created mermaids, chickens, cats and more and then scanned them into the app on the iPad and were able to customize them some more - using the program to change the color of their characters. Ortman said they can change colors, make animations and more in the 2D format. “What I relate it to the most is Super Mario Bros.,” Ortman said. “All of those components they can do.” The 19-member club started earlier this year after Ortman asked parents what their children would be interested in during a survey. “I tried to get students with familiarity with video games, because they would be coming in with different ideas,” he said. The video game component is what sold it.” While the first few meetings have focused on simply creating characters and backgrounds while they all learn about the program, the end goal is to come together by the end of the school year to develop their own game. “I’m going to have them step back and start to develop a storyline,” Ortman said. “A lot of these groups are coming up with random things, and it doesn’t tie together. ➤ See Video, Page 7

By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer Collaboration and leadership training were on the menu at the Future Farmers of America Chapter Officer Leadership Training held at Eastern View High School Oct. 9. The training, hosted by the Virginia FFA leadership, taught FFA officers from the Central Area about trust, leadership, team building and collaboration. Melissa Suder, FFA Advisor at Eastern View High School, said the yearly training helps prepare the FFA officers for their yearly terms. “We put a lot of responsibility and planning on them,” Suder said. “That’s the future of our industry, that’s our future leaders, we want them to have the abilities to lead. “ This was the first year EVHS hosted the event, which focused on students honing their leadership skills through different workshopping events in two different areas in the high school. “Truthfully in FFA meetings we stress more of that (leadership) than anything ag based,” Suder said. “Being in an agriculture class is a common factor with all of our FFA kids. While a lot of contests still focus on ag, there’s definitely a leadership component.” Makayla Craig, EVHS senior and FFA President, said that this was her second year attending COLT and that she could see the difference a year makes. “I understand what it means to be a leader, more now than before,” Craig said. “As president, I have to learn how to lead effectively and that’s always been something that is important to me.” Younger students, like Floyd T. Binns seventh grader Dakota Wagler, said the experience was an eye-opening one. “We’re learning about trust and responsibility of our actions and staying a team,” he said. Kendall Knicely, a 2018 grad from Turner Ashby, is the state secretary for FFA and was

Soon, the creation was on the app and bouncing through the background. At one table, third-graders Kendall Bopp and Ashleigh Grimsley giggled over their creations.

She came to FFA in a non traditional manner, as she was a lifelong softball player that had to leave the sport after being diagnosed with a heart condition. That forced her into the “blue jacket,” and has helped spark her interest in helping mold new leaders. “Getting into FFA and wanting to help these kids, it just makes me realize that I was one of them in these seats,” Knicely said. “It’s just an opportunity to be a light in their worlds. Leadership means stepping out of your shell. We want kids to know that leadership doesn’t have to be about taking big steps, it can be baby steps. It’s the little things that matter.” While leadership was front and center, the collaboration was something the FFA students may not have been aware they were learning about. As they learned about leadership, members of Chef Jay Cohen’s Culinary Arts class set up a taco bar behind them with fresh made tortilla chips, chicken beef, cilantro lime tomato rice, homemade pico de gallo and cookies. “We love that partnership,” Suder said. “CTE is one big family. We feel it’s important to support each other. If we can give his kids some experience at one of our conferences, that’s what we should be doing.” ➤ See FFA, Page 13

HISTORY Story of William Grayson: The final chapter? On July 17th, 1850, William Grayson having been confined in jail since April 1849 awaiting the scheduling of his third trial was taken from the Culpeper County jail and hanged. Apparently, the concern of the perpetrators was that Judge Field upon a motion for change of venue would allow the third trial to be heard in another county with the fear that this time Grayson would be acquitted. The note below was attached to the decision and record of the Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals shared in last week’s column. NOTE BY THE REPORTER. — After the decision of the Court granting to the prisoner another

trial, an armed mob in the day time, took him from the jail and hung him: And thus to punish a man whom they suspected of murder, they committed murder themselves. I thought bringing the reader to this point in the saga of William Grayson would end the story, but there is more, much more. This was not a common case of lynching. Grayson received two trial and was headed for a third; there were citizens in Culpeper and surrounding counties who attempted to abort the mob’s plan. They failed to do so, and much sentiment was expressed inside the county as well as across the Commonwealth in opposition to the act. I have included the transcripted portions below of an excerpt from a letter by an anonymous Culpeper “Law Abiding Citizen” that appeared in the Richmond Enquirer on July 26, 1850. “But enough.

BIZ BIO The People of Wellspring: Yates Sealander, MD When a thank-you card walks around on two legs, it tends to make an impression. Actually, the thank-yous weren’t technically cards. They were chickens—and they were part of the reason Yates Sealander pursued a career as a rural family physician. “My great uncle, who was a surgeon, used to tell me about getting chickens or homebaked goodies as a thank you for his work,” Sealander said. “Those sincere gestures stuck with me and made me want to help people like he did.” A familiar, trusted local family physician in Madison, Sealander joined the Wellspring team earlier this year. He’s still at the same location on Route 29 North, but now his practice is part of a system that fits well with Sealander’s longstanding commitment to community care. “Wellspring’s model provides real advantages,” Sealander said. “There’s great support here, and

specialists are readily available, and local— sometimes in the building.” Sealander earned his Bachelors degree from Davidson Yates Sealander, MD College in 1981, and in 1985, received a medical degree from Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University, He’s been practicing in Madison County for over two decades Given that when he’s not seeing patients, Sealander enjoys being outside fishing and hunting, Madison County is just about a perfect fit for Sealander. “I always wanted to be an old country doctor,” he said. While Sealander still has a few years to go before he can qualify for being “old,” he has the “country doctor” part of his dream nailed down, and two out of three ain’t bad.

the jail. And they hung the prisoner. Will this community uphold these misguided men in this flagrant violation of law? Never before that I know of was Virginia the scene of such a disgraceful outrage> Will the principal actors and leaders in this revengeful work be suffered to go “unwhipped of justice?” It is not a case of Grayson’s guilt…It is a case of rebellion against the decision of the highest criminal tribunal in our land. Does it not become a lawabiding, order-loving people, unitedly and firmly to assert and maintain the dignity and supremacy of the law and to inflict punishment upon every infraction of it?...” There were numerous articles pertaining to Grayson’s murder that tell a story of those who attempted to prevent the tragedy and those who concurred with the sentiments expressed by the “Law Abiding Citizen” for dignity and order. They will be shared for a full

understanding. There are a few other questions remaining: • Who was William Grayson? Does he have living descendants? • How did Grayson afford the services of a Richmond-based law firm? • What happened to the perpetrators? Until next week, be well.

ot long after I settled in with my Widow, Max came to my screen door to get acquainted. He heard I was being groomed as an “inside cat” and wanted to offer his sympathy. He knew the chipmunks would torment me. They would parade back and forth on my front step, close by my screen door, and taunt me with the chipmunk song, “Nah-nah-nah, can’t catch me. I’m a chipmunk and I am free.” Sure enough. They did what he said and I was totally frustrated. Max advised me to keep my cool. Life was short and chipmunks were a dime a dozen. To help me adjust to all of this, Max entertained me with stories. He told me about Oliver, the high-tech cat who lived two doors down. He told me about the wild turkeys that flew in and out of yards as if they personally owned them – and the woodchucks who ate everything in sight. The skunks he knew by name. But his most hair-raising story was about a mountain lion seen walking our street in the moonlight. A retired police officer, four doors down, reported the sighting and who could doubt the word of a law officer trained in accurate reporting? Maybe Max was pulling my tail on the mountain lion. I can’t be sure. I can only say his stories slowly made me more content to be an “inside cat.” Mixed in with Max’s stories were his flirtatious remarks. He said things that made me blush. But he also became a trusted friend as he listened to my rants about the uppity chipmunks. There was one


in particular, Mr. Chips, who really needled me. In fact, he made me so mad I got my dander up. Then one morning I went to the door and found the Uppity Mr. Chips at the foot of the steps, dead as a doornail, stiff as a starched shirt, a perfectly laid out corpse. I knew who had “done him in” and I was ready to follow Max to the moon. But we lost Max. It happened so suddenly. One day he was here; the next, he was gone. Well, not in the forever sense, but in the neighborhood. Oliver, his friend two door down, told me Max’s humans sold their house and moved out. He said there were skid marks in the driveway about the size of Max’s paws. Oliver thinks he was taken by force. But who knows? He might have been bribed. He didn’t like to miss a meal. I guess we’ll never know unless Max reappears and gives us the true story. To pass the time without Max’s visits, I resort to the standard Tail Chase as outlined in the Cat Manual. That is, I pretend not to look at my tail, while looking at it over my shoulder. When the time seems right, I pounce on it and seem to mean business. Sometimes I give it a nip, as if it belonged to someone else. Always I end up letting the poor thing loose. I do my best Tail Chase in the doorway to the bathroom. That’s a personal preference. It’s not in the Manual. Recently, however, I remembered Max’s stories about the turkeys who flew over backyard fences and decided I would try a modified version in my living room. I will call it leaping, and I’ll tell you how it is working out in my next article. Cally Tales is its entirety is available at Reigning Cats and Dogs on Davis Street in Culpeper.

YMCA IS FOR COMMUNITY! As a native of Culpeper, CCHS class of 1961, I have always considered Culpeper home. My family has deep roots in Culpeper, going back generations. My sisters Betsy Smith and Jane Burke, and brother Dudley live in Culpeper. I live in King George, a small County of around 25,000 residents. I serve on the King George Family YMCA Board of Directors and served on the King George Board of Supervisors for 17 years. The Years from 2000 to 2009 were very productive. We built two schools, a sherrif’s office, a fire, rescue, and emergency services facility, and an animal shelter. One of the best decisions we made in 2006 was to build the King George Family YMCA. We agreed to fund the building and provide 20 acres of land. The YMCA agreed to operate the facility, and give priority to our high school swim team for practices and meets. The YMCA lived up to its agreement and no additional funds have been provided by the County. We celebrated our 10 year anniversary in September and assessed the YMCA impact on the citizens of King George. We found that 12,400 citizens have belonged to the YMCA, 3200 adults and families received financial assistance to participate in the YMCA and YMCA programs, 2,550 second graders participated in the YMCA learn to swim program, 740 youth attended the before and after school program, 650 youth had a safe and fun summer in day camp, 360 at risk youth gained skills over the Summer and had no learning loss in the YMCA achievement gap program, 635 at risk youth were ready for school through the YMCA Bright Beginnings program, and 210 adults learned to swim. Programs for adults and senior citizens included Empower Program for post stroke patients, Cancer Care program for cancer survivors, blood pressure programs for patients with heart issues, Y-Change Diabetes program, therapeutic movement classes, and special needs programs. The YMCA has lived up to its commitment to youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. The YMCA has touched almost every demographic in King George County, and we are better for it. The citizens of King George have benefited greatly from the YMCA and I’m confident that the citizens of Culpeper will as well.

Food Closet hosts 'buy-a-bird' The Culpeper Food Closet has kicked off its annual "Buy-a-Bird" campaign. For the past several years, thos in need in the Culpeper community have been provicded with the necessary makings for a traditional Thanksgiving meal. SWIFT, Culpeper Human Services and the Culpeper Food Closet coordinate the efforts and resoureces that make the event successful. The Culpeper Food Closet spearheads the program by purchasing the turkeys, while SWIFT provides the fixin's such as potatoes, dressing, veggies, etc. Culpeper Human Services receives and evaluates each application before passing them on to the Culpeper Food Closet for final processing. Prior to the event, Nov. 17, SWIFT will pack all the fixings in tote bags based on the number of people in each family that qualifies. On the day of distribution, recipients will start arriving at the Davis Street parking lot by 8 a.m. The average cost of each frozen turkey is $15 and we are always looking for donations. Last year we distributed 530 turkeys, helping 90 elderly and shut ins. That's a total of 1,450 Thanksgiving

meals. As the Culpeper Food Closet approaches the end of the year, they are running at a deficit of $13,000. The Food Closet serves more than 350 families each month, averaging approximately 11,000 meals. The Culpeper Food Closet receives no funds from local, state or federal agencies.

➤ FFA, from Page 7 Cohen said the experience of catering a meeting like this is a great experience for his students. “For the kids, it’s huge,” Cohen said. “They’ve never experienced this kind of food service before, and the intensity, and the drive, the sense of urgency, and the creativity is a great learning experience for them.” EVHS junior Jamey Hickman said that she truly enjoys the experience of cooking. “I’ve always had a passion for it, it’s just always been my way of expressing myself,” she said.

said he hopes to go into the restaurant business after he graduates and hopes to one day own his own restaurant. “I have a lot of experience in cooking, my mom taught me all these things,” Montiel said. “She started me at a young age because she was a stay at home mom and she got me really into it.” He said irregardless if a student is interested into going into the culinary arts as a profession, they should still take the class. “I think it’s really useful for everyone even if you’re not going to pursue it as a career, it’s just a useful life skill in general,” Montiel said.

Brat visits Culpeper businesses during final weeks of campaign By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer Congressman Dave Brat visited Culpeper businesses in the final week and a half of the heated campaign for the District 7 seat. On Oct. 25, Brat stopped at Merchants Grocery, Cintas and visited local residents before finishing with a rally at the Culpeper County Republican Committee. During his stop at Cintas, Brat shook hands with workers and then held an impromptu town hall inside the breakroom at the longtime Culpeper industry, reassuring workers he was helping put more money in their pockets. Brat told the assembled crew of more than 100 workers that “you have to get the economy moving.” “Wages are going up,” he said. Brat told the crowd that he and the Republicans have already pushed through one round of tax cuts and they “want to make the middle class tax cuts permanent.” When one worker brought up healthcare, Brat answered that he has always been “for pre-existing conditions,” and that he voted yes for pre-existing conditions


Congressman Dave Brat visits with supporters during a rally Oct. 25 in Culpeper. last year before the bill was voted down in the senate. Prior to his impromptu meeting, he toured the facility learn-

Culpeper Democrats host ribbon cutting at their new location By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer The Culpeper County Democrats celebrated the opening of their new office with a ribbon cutting while encouraging Culpeper to vote Blue on Nov. 6. The ribbon cutting, hosted by the Culpeper Chamber of Commerce Oct. 24, celebrated the Democrats moving to 206 S. Main St., Suite 302 - with office space being donated by Greg Yates. Democratic Committee chairman Ben Hixon praised the Culpeper Chamber of Commerce for their work in the community, particularly their District 7 Congress debate held Oct. 15. Hixon said it was a well-balanced debate that showed off the best Culpeper has to offer. Hixon praised Culpeper as growing and noted that the Democratic party in the county is growing because of it. “This is not just another community that votes one way, we are rich and diverse and activism is alive in Culpeper,” Hixon said.

When the 1938 remake directed by Edmund Goulding and starring Errol Flynn was released, the 1930 film was retitled “Flight Commander.” Many of the flying sequences from the 1930 film, expertly shot by Ernest Haller, were edited

FILM • “Wings”(Paramount, 1927) Dazzling aerobatic dogfights mark "Wings" as one of the last epics of the silent era and the first winner of the Oscar for what would become known as Best Picture. William Wellman, a former World War I pilot, directed John Monk Saunders' story of two childhood friends (Charles ‘Buddy’ Rogers and Richard Arlen) and the women who love them ("It Girl" Clara Bow and Jobyna Ralston). Short on story but long on action, the film employed a reported 17 assistant cameramen to choreograph its extended flying sequences and hundreds of Army extras, giving many in the audience the closest glimpse of flight that they would ever experience. “Wings” was included in the National Film Registry in 1997.Live musical accompaniment will be provided by Andrew Simpson.

FILM • “Paths of Glory” (United Artists, 1957) Based on Humphrey Cobb's novel about three French soldiers, portrayed on film by, Ralph Meeker, Timothy Carey and Joe Turkel, on trial for cowardice during World War I, the film established Stanley Kubrick as an influential director. Adapted by Kubrick, Calder Willingham, and Jim Thompson, the screenplay chillingly spotlights the arrogance and incompetence of military leaders, three of which are portrayed by Adolphe Menjou, George Macready, and Wayne Morris. Though decidedly antiwar, the film does not espouse pacifism, exemplifying this contradiction in the character passionately portrayed by Kirk Douglas as the officer defending the unjustly charged soldiers. Added to the National Film Registry in 1992. Digital presentation, 88 min. Free, at the Library of Congress Packard Campus Theater located at 19053 Mt. Pony Rd. in Culpeper, VA.

FILM • “I Walked with a Zombie” (RKO, 1943) Producer Val Lewton and director Jacques Tourneur created this atmospheric chiller on a low budget, utilizing limited sets and only a handful of extras. Frances Dee plays a nurse who comes to a tropical island to treat the wife of a sugar plantation owner (Tom Conway) who suffers from an unexplained mental paralysis. She soon discovers skeletons in the family closet and local voodoo rituals and legends that cannot be ignored. The mesmerizing story is loosely adapted from Charlotte Brontë's “Jane Eyre.” Screenwriter Ardel Wray recalled that before filming "We were all plunged into research on Haitian voodoo culture. Val (Lewton) was addictive researcher, drawing out of it the overall feel, mood, and quality he wanted, as well as details for actual production. He even found some genuine voodoo musicians for the film.” 35mm film print produced by the Library of Congress Film Preservation lab in 2000. 69 min.

FILM • “Home for the Holidays” (Paramount, 1995) Holly Hunter stars as Claudia Larson,

a single mom who, after being fired from her job as an art restorer and regretfully having an affair with her ex-boss, apprehensively decides to fly to Baltimore to spend Thanksgiving with her eccentric extended family. Jodie Foster directed this affectionate but dark comedy with a cast featuring Anne Bancroft and Charles Durning as Claudia’s parents and Robert Downey Jr. as her younger brother and confidante Tommy. Film critic Roger Ebert praised Foster's ability to “direct the film with a sure eye for the revealing little natural moment," and Downey's performance that "brings out all the complexities of a character who has used a quick wit to keep the world's hurts at arm's length." Rated PG-13. 35mm archival film print. 103 min. Free, at the Library of Congress Packard Campus Theater located at 19053 Mt. Pony Rd. in Culpeper, VA. No reservations taken.

FILM • “Babe” (Universal, 1995) Babe, an orphaned piglet, is chosen for a "guess the weight" contest at a county fair. The winning farmer, Arthur Hoggett (James Cromwell), brings Babe home and allows him to stay with his Border Collie named Fly, her mate Rex and their puppies, in the barn. While trying to fit in with the other barnyard animals, Babe learns the skill of sheepherding from Fly and is entered in a competition. Despite its unlikely premise and low profile, Babe's inspirational story, directed and cowritten by Australian filmmaker Chris Noonan, was embraced by audiences and critics alike. With its sympathetic view of the intellectual, emotional and social capacities of animals, “Babe” had a marked effect on the growth of vegetarianism, particularly among younger viewers. James Cromwell, already a vegetarian for 20 years, became an ethical vegan as a result of starring as Farmer Hoggett, saying, "Working with a lot of animals and animal trainers during production, I cared about their welfare and then, of course, you have lunch and it’s all there in front of you, and I thought, I should go the whole hog, so to speak.” The movie was named Best Film of the Year by The National Society of Film Critics and was nominated for seven Academy Awards (including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay), winning the Best Visual Effects Oscar. 35mm archival film print, 91 min.

Written, produced, and directed by John Hughes, the comedy was a widely noticed change in the repertoire of the filmmaker who up until that time was known for his popular coming-of-age teen movies such as “Sixteen Candles” (1984), “The Breakfast Club” (1985) and “Ferris Bueller's Day Off” (1986). 35mm archival print, 93 min. *No one under the age of 17 will be admitted without a parent or guardian.

This week I realized that Halloween is the ideal opening Marshall Conner act for a heated midterm election. Halloween provides escapism, an evening’s refuge from our everyday self. It is a holiday that requires more creativity than money—and it carries much less emotional baggage. Who or what shall we be this year? That’s always the big question, right? I heard a funny costume suggestion a few days back. A witty chap said, “What if we all dressed up as the wonderful, interesting people we portray daily on social media?” Who will we be next week after this big election? Will you vote red or blue? Will Culpeper get a lovely recreation center or a Trojan horse with a tax bill? This is up to the most powerful


Vote no when it comes to community rec center The community center idea is one of increasing County debt (up to $19 million, including interest) and was said to increase county taxes by one to three cents (remember it is one to three cents per thousand dollars of house value or if a 3 cent tax


Ask BOS about level of charitable support needed for propose 'Y' It is clear that the Board of Supervisors wishes to have a youth and family-centered community center operated by the Rappahannock YMCA. They actively pursued such a desire with a the Y which ultimately resulted in the referendum question for the voters on the November ballot. The YMCA is certainly a wonderful organization and the easy vote would be to support such a wish. However, hard questions deserve to be answered before the voters cast their ballot in November. "How

force in democracy—the people. The very same people who were running around acting foolish at Halloween parties. As the election draws near the signs get bigger, TV commercials take a dark twisty turn, the voiceovers grow sinister and newspaper columnists get squeezed into the far corners of the editorial page. Recently, several comparisons to 1968 have emerged in the media. Most of my inner circle of friends felt that the comparisons are not valid. My brother, an esteemed historian, was critical of today’s political climate then he added a bright ray of hope. “Things were far worse in 1968... Americans are so self-absorbed these days we don’t even recall what real danger is- additionally, all too often it is the Boomer generation themselves that bring back the scar tissue of that era. I cannot wait for new generations to lead the country. I just hope the well isn’t poisoned beyond repair by the time they do.” There are divisions, big festering ones, that need to be addressed with

large doses of fiscal responsibility, statesmanship, empathy, civility and transparency. So many national wounds in society and politics seem to be rooted in the divisions created in the sixties. In 1968, we had the Vietnam War, election violence, the smoldering aftermath of political assassinations, riots in large cities and the wonderfully heated debates between William F. Buckley Jr. and Gore Vidal. We also had good music and excellent films. The modern discussion then became focused on a drought of leadership. Our two-party system appears to be tying itself in knots while trying to strangle the other side. Two of my military school brothers added some much need humor to the discussion. We are all breaking into our 50s and discovering the joys of bifocals, balding and bellies. “No similarities to 1968. I was born in 1967, so I spent 1968 pooping in my diaper. I haven't been doing that these days, so the times are totally different. I just wanted to give some appropriate historical perspective,” said my Oregon-based friend. “1968 was all about the diaper

rash for me,” added my South Carolina-based friend. “The horror.” Mister West coast replied, “So are you saying that diaper rash was your personal Vietnam, and that the skin irritation on your behind was a symbolic microcosm of the Tet Offensive?” Humor and horror are great forms of escapism. My father served two combat tours in Vietnam---one during the Tet Offensive and another at the end of the war. Communication between those serving and their families at home was minimal—letters, audio tapes and the odd phone call on a holiday were about it. The TV news, radio and newspapers covered the war—but there were often delays of days and even weeks. To escape stress my mother and I tuned into late-night horror/science fiction films. Our favorites included: The Creature from the Black Lagoon, Frankenstein, Planet of the Apes, Dracula and the Wolfman. We popped popcorn and created a bubbly monstrosity… with Coke and ice cream. This always got us through the tough times. A scary film is never as bad as the real world… is it?

increase on a $300,000 house is $90 extra dollars you the tax payer pay for this center. Now lets look at expenses not covered, pool expenses from chlorine damage and pumps those items that are not routine costs, heating and air condition equipment that has to be replaced, roof expenses, etc., etc. These are major costs of thousands of dollars we the people who pay

haven’t seen. See more costs not told to county residents. In an article that appeared there is also a subsidy cost so that low income people will pay less than other people (like snap cards) so that is also a cost. There is also a problem that this YMCA club will hurt other business’s in Culpeper who offer some of the same services as the

community center. The other day a reader suggested using school facilities for community projects, the playing fields we already have, a great idea since we taxpayers are paying for these items now already. Community center vote no!

much will such a center cost the taxpayers?" "What will memberships cost?" and "What will be the annual charitable support required to allow such a community center to 'break even' and who will provide it?" I asked the Board for this information by letter in September. The county adminstrator, Mr. Egertson, replied that the carrying cost (principle plus interest) to the county taxpayers for the $13.1 million dollar bond issue would be approximately $970,000 per year for 20 years. Mr. Egertson acknowledged that community charitable support would be required to cover operating losses though he did not provide any projections of such support which was part of the Rappannock YMCA's

"business model." Such community support has been projected by an independent analyst, Healthplex Associates, to be approximately $1 million inYear One with continuing substantial charitable support over future years of operation. This projection excludes charges for building depreciation, suggesting that building maintenance will either be ignored or will add to the operating deficit. This analysis was provided to each member of the Board of Supervisors prior to their adoption of this referendum. This level of charitable support from a community that saw our local United Way close down for lack of community support critical to such services as SAFE, the Literacy

Council, Legal Aid, Boy/Girl Scouts, the Free Clinic and many other critical community services, is not a reasonable expectation. This level of community support could not be generated for our very popular State Theater. Do we want to to make the same mistake twice? I have asked the Board to publish these projections widely in social and print media. I encourage my fellow citizens/voters/taxpayers to ask their representatives to forthrightly answer the above questions, not keep these projected costs hidden from those who will surely be called upon to "pay the piper." See what they tell you. Then make an informed vote.

Finding balance in traditions ESTATE STEWARDSHIP Katherine Charapich

In the early morning magic of the local farmers’ market, as the end-of-summer weather tried to hang on – even in October, my favorite purveyor of candles and I shared a story that brought back memories of

yesteryear. “Here, smell this candle; to me it smells like Christmas morn.” Indeed it did. This artist of candle-making had captured the essence, causing us to reminisce about the fire in the hearth, the orange and nuts in the bottom of each stocking, and the Lifesaver books that we had in common in our childhood Christmas traditions. In the hours that followed, prompted by the memory of those Lifesaver books, I thought that I might write a heartwarming story about an element of beauty found in estate planning experiences, for there are so many – each and every day. As I am enjoying the pumpkin aroma from my newest candle purchase – a little more Fall appropriate, I re-center on what occurs irrespective of any season, any time, any age – and, what I wish I knew then. You see, it was my great-aunt who would present me with a Lifesaver book at every Christmas season. I looked forward to the car ride through Pennsylvania’s snow covered mountains, arriving at my aunt’s Victorian home set in a picturesque town, and the visit that as the years waned was witness to a solitary life – set in finery, though with little means. I had no concept of what she sacrificed each year both in resources and logistics to present us with gifts of candy. Nor did I understand that when she was the recipient of a bag of groceries – tuna, bread, milk, Wink soda, cat food, batteries, and a box of chocolates as part of her gift, it was all important for her; as was the


Illusion and Collusion or Facts and Results? On November 6th, voters of the 7th District will head to the polls and the choices could not be more polar opposites. On one hand, we have the unknown, Abigail Spanberger, representing the Democrat party of Illusion and Collusion, versus our current Congressman, Dave Brat, a 20+ year economics professor at Randolph Macon, a staunch Conservative and defender of our Constitution with a proven track record of accomplishments during his tenure in Congress. Congressman Brat represents the Republican party of Facts and Results!

social visit, and the outing to the local restaurant. The other night, as I sought assistance to remain focused on a task at hand, I listened to Fiddler on the Roof’s, “Tradition.” Not only do I love the deep baritone voice of Tevye, but I find some comfort in the lyrics, “And, how do we keep our balance? That I can tell you in one word. Tradition.” Lifesaver books, bags of groceries, visits from loved ones, and tradition appear at first to be unrelated. They are related, each adding a balance. From the view of a young girl, it was a building block – part of the ebb and flow of family interactions, instilling – unbeknownst to me, how to care for another. From the view of an aunt of senior years, perhaps it was her lifeline. I was too young, or admittedly not mature enough in my early twenties, to understand the enormity of change that occurred when my aunt moved from her home into a nursing home, the toll it took on her when she lost her best friend, my grandmother, nor the tears she shed each time our visits came to a close. When my aunt passed away, perhaps as many young adults find themselves, I was present during the events that followed though I did not grasp the meaning; however, now I understand. Those events, the viewing, the service, the reception, the words of condolence and expressions of hope, and visiting the graveside are traditions that keep us balanced in the cycle of life. As an estate planning attorney, I frequently receive the inquiry, “My loved one has passed, now what?” From the view of how to handle the estate of the decedent, there are specific approaches and those may run concurrent with family traditions. Step One: Contact the Funeral Home Representatives of the funeral home are an incredible resource. They will oversee the transportation and preparation of the body for cremation

The illusion candidate, Ms. Spanberger, rarely states her positions on issues but we know she supports open borders, sanctuary cities and amnesty for illegals. She wants you to believe, as does her Rad-Left Democrat party, in the illusion that unlimited illegals are good for our country and our economy, even though we know they commit more crimes, cost taxpayers billions of dollars in free healthcare and education and keep wages suppressed for American workers. She advocates more government regulations and higher individual tax rates, eliminating the $2000 increase in take home pay that the Dave Brat supported tax cuts have put in Virginian’s pockets this year! She wants higher corporate

or burial, organ donation, writing and publishing the obituary, the arrangements for funeral and celebration services, and obtaining copies of the death certificate. Step Two: Contact Your Pastor and the Pastor of the Decedent Grief is unique to each individual. The passing of a loved one is an occurrence for which little in life prepares one. Surround yourself with those who can offer support, even when you are unsure if you need it or how to ask for it. Step Three: Notifying Family, Friends, and Employer The pastor of the decedent and a family member or friend may be instrumental in sharing with others, including the decedent’s employer, that your loved one has passed. Step Four: Banks, Credit Card Companies, and Utility Providers Wait. Stop. Go to Step Six. Why isn’t this step six instead four? It is placed in this order of descent because more often than naught, right after contacting the funeral home and loved ones the next inclination of a survivor is to contact the decedent’s banks, credit card companies, and utility providers to let them know about the passing. The survivor thinks she is doing the right thing by providing such information; however, contacting the banks, credit card companies, and utility providers should not be affected until one speaks with an estate planning/probate attorney. Step Five: Care for Dependents and Pets In the event there is a dependent spouse who is the survivor and who lives in the family residence, make arrangements for dependent spouse’s care. If family members are unable to provide care that was previously provided by the decedent, if appropriate, consider contacting a company who provides inhome care. If the decedent had minor children and there is no surviving parent able to care ➤ See Charapich, Page 24

taxes to fund the illusion that more government is good government but once again, Dave Brat and the party of facts and results have shown us that the opposite, reducing corporate taxes, has helped our economy boom and reduced unemployment to historically low levels. Thankfully, it is no illusion but a fact that Congressman Brat is the one member of Congress who holds a PHD in Economics and actually understands how the economy works. Don’t succumb to the illusion of Socialism and free everything that Spanberger and the Rad-Left mob promises. Vote the Facts with Brat! Glenn Diersen Sr Goochland

CHURCH Self-Giving or Giving Thanks? So, what are your favorite thanksgiving memories? When I was growing up, we always had to go to the Hales’ Farm for this auspicious occasion and experience a circuslike atmosphere. I always marveled at my aunt’s everchanging hair color (orange was my personal favorite), and the incessant use of cigarettes which caused a plume of smoke to waffle throughout the house. My grandmother would always express her passive delight that she had to make three different kinds of dressings, one with oysters, one without oysters, and one without celery to satisfy our foodie needs. And like clockwork, my grandfather would chime in with his dismay at the yearly, rising cost of a gallon of oysters. Then, my older cousin would usually detail his high school exploits bordering on some sort of juvenile delinquent behavior. Welcome to the


Hales Family Thanksgiving! I know that each of us has our own thanksgiving stories and memories. But when it comes right down to it, what is the real significance of the holiday? Has it become just another day off where we gorge ourselves, fight with family, watch football and prepare for Black Friday shopping, or do we truly see this as an opportunity to be thankful for all of God’s blessings in our lives? As soon as I learned how to write, my parents would have me sit down and pen a thank you note whenever someone did something nice for me. I’m not sure how much of that happens today, but they were teaching me how to respond positively to someone’s generosity. And in Holy Scripture we see others sharing their thanks to the living Savior. In Psalm 107:8-9 the psalmist says, “Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love, for his wonderful works to the children of man. For he satisfies the longing soul, and the hungry soul he fills with good things.” In I Thessalonians 5:16-18 Paul writes, “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all

circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” In a world where we are so preoccupied with self-giving, it is easy to take things for granted, isn’t it? Years ago, my wife and I were visiting family up north when we had the opportunity to stay in a beautiful, winter home. But as the cold winds blew and the snow piled up, we realized that the home had limited heat, and there were no means to clear the drive. We just expected that these things would happen when they didn’t. In life we have so many expectations on how things should be, that we sometimes forget to give thanks for the things that are continually provided by God without fail. Whether it’s the air we breathe, the clothes on our backs, the food in our mouths, the places to live, the employment to pay bills, or the transportation to get us where we need, these are all blessings. And the greatest blessing of all was Jesus, who was willing to sacrifice his life, so we could experience total forgiveness and life forever in his name. Outside of it being the right thing to do, ultimately, isn’t it more gratifying to be thankful for the kindnesses that

others have shown us, rather than only self-focusing on our own needs? Earlier this week I found myself in the automobile repair shop getting the car inspected. Everything was fine expect needing some new windshield wiper blades. Feeling extremely happy that there was nothing majorly wrong with my vehicle, I went to the cashier to pay the bill. Then I received the word that someone I knew had paid the invoice in full! Out of pride I tried to prevent this generosity from happening, but the person wouldn’t allow it. And I cannot tell you how grateful and humble I am for this act of love. Knowing that we should be upmost grateful concerning these worldly acts of goodwill, maybe they will compel us to be so thankful for everything that God has and continues to do for all of humanity. Isn’t that what Thanksgiving is truly about? Brad Hales is the pastor of Reformation Lutheran Church, Culpeper, Virginia. As an ordained minister of the North American Lutheran Church for over 23 years, Hales is also an appointed member of the Culpeper Human Services Board. He is married with two children.

➤ Charapich, from Page 21 for the minor children, consider having family members care for the minors until legal guardianship of the minors can be determined. The goal is to provide an interim safe and nurturing environment. In addition to the above dependents, many decedents leave behind a furry, four-legged love that will be in need of a roof over its head and food in its dish. Preparation is often made for the care of and provision for pets in ones will or trust.

Step Six: Contact an Estate Planning/Probate Attorney An estate planning attorney, who understands the probate process, will encourage you to locate the following documents if the decedent had them in place at the time of death: last will and testament, trust(s), proof of assets funded into the trust(s), deeds to real property, proof of interests owned in businesses, last statements for cash, savings, and wealth management accounts, and documentation on life insurance, retirement plan(s), and other benefits. In the event the decedent did not have a will or trust in place, the attorney will still want to review the remaining

information. In either case, before any action is taken related to the probate process, the attorney will want to get an understanding of the decedent’s assets, as well as her debts. Seeking such counsel upfront, may save you from making a misstep, and should help you put in place a roadmap for settling the estate of the decedent. Step Seven: Coming to Terms with Death Though you may have contacted your pastor upon receiving the news of the decedent’s passing, in addition to staying in touch with your pastor and relying on his spiritual guidance, consider becoming involved with a group that focuses on

grief counseling. Seeing the transformation of an individual who has suffered the loss of a loved one – where death has come and interrupted, is a provision of hope. The precious survivor who initially gasps for air, attempts to rise above the demands of paperwork and questions, leans on her faith, slowly gets her footing, and relying on familiar traditions and creating new ones often reaches a balance that encompasses a healing and peace, providing encouragement to those who may follow in her footsteps.

Explanation for Proposed Constitutional Amendment to Be Voted On at the November 6, 2018, Election PROPOSED CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT ARTICLE X. Taxation and Finance. Section 6. Exempt property. BALLOT QUESTION Should a county, city, or town be authorized to provide a partial tax exemption for real property that is subject to recurrent flooding, if flooding resiliency improvements have been made on the property? EXPLANATION Present Law Generally, the Constitution of Virginia provides that all property shall be taxed. The Constitution of Virginia also sets out specific types of property that may be exempted from taxation. For example, the Constitution of Virginia allows the General Assembly to permit localities to provide a partial exemption from real estate taxes as an incentive for property owners to make substantial improvements to existing structures by renovating, rehabilitating, or replacing those structures. Proposed Amendment The proposed amendment would authorize the General Assembly to allow localities to provide a partial tax exemption for real property that is subject to recurrent flooding, if improvements have been made on the property to address flooding. The General Assembly and participating localities would be allowed to place restrictions or conditions on qualification for the tax exemption. A “yes” vote will authorize the General Assembly to allow localities to provide a partial tax exemption for real property that is subject to recurrent flooding, if improvements have been made on the property to address flooding. A “no” vote will not allow such a tax exemption. FULL TEXT OF AMENDMENT Amend Section 6 of Article X of the Constitution of Virginia as follows: ARTICLE X TAXATION AND FINANCE Section 6. Exempt property. (a) Except as otherwise provided in this Constitution, the following property and no other shall be exempt from taxation, State and local, including inheritance taxes: (1) Property owned directly or indirectly by the Commonwealth or any political subdivision thereof, and obligations of the Commonwealth or any political subdivision thereof exempt by law. (2) Real estate and personal property owned and exclusively occupied or used by churches or religious bodies for religious worship or for the residences of their ministers. (3) Private or public burying grounds or cemeteries, provided the same are not operated for profit. (4) Property owned by public libraries or by institutions of learning not conducted for profit, so long as such property is primarily used for literary, scientific, or educational purposes or purposes incidental thereto. This provision may also apply to leasehold interests in such property as may be provided by general law. (5) Intangible personal property, or any class or classes thereof, as may be exempted in whole or in part by general law. (6) Property used by its owner for religious, charitable, patriotic, historical, benevolent, cultural, or public park and playground purposes, as may be provided by classification or designation by an ordinance adopted by the local governing body and subject to such restrictions and conditions as provided by general law. (7) Land subject to a perpetual easement permitting inundation by water as may be exempted in whole or in part by general law. (b) The General Assembly may by general law authorize the governing body of any county, city, town, or regional government to provide for the exemption from local property taxation, or a portion thereof, within such restrictions and upon such conditions as may be prescribed, of real estate and personal property designed for continuous habitation owned by, and occupied as the sole dwelling of, persons not less than sixty-five years of age or persons permanently and totally disabled as established by general law. A local governing body may be authorized to establish either income or financial worth limitations, or both, in order to qualify for such relief. (c) Except as to property of the Commonwealth, the General Assembly by general law may restrict or condition, in whole or in part, but not extend, any or all of the above exemptions. (d) The General Assembly may define as a separate subject of taxation any property, including real or personal property, equipment, facilities, or devices, used primarily for the purpose of abating or preventing pollution of the atmosphere or waters of the Commonwealth or for the purpose of transferring or storing solar energy, and by general law may allow the governing body of any county, city, town, or regional government to exempt or partially exempt such property from taxation, or by general law may directly exempt or partially exempt such property from taxation. (e) The General Assembly may define as a separate subject of taxation household goods, personal effects and tangible farm property and products, and by general law may allow the governing body of any county, city, town, or regional government to exempt or partially exempt such property from taxation, or by general law may directly exempt or partially exempt such property from taxation. (f) Exemptions of property from taxation as established or authorized hereby shall be strictly construed; provided, however, that all property exempt from taxation on the effective date of this section shall continue to be exempt until otherwise provided by the General Assembly as herein set forth. (g) The General Assembly may by general law authorize any county, city, town, or regional government to impose a service charge upon the owners of a class or classes of exempt property for services provided by such governments. (h) The General Assembly may by general law authorize the governing body of any county, city, town, or regional government to provide for a partial exemption from local real property taxation, within such restrictions and upon such conditions as may be prescribed, (i) of real estate whose improvements, by virtue of age and use, have undergone substantial renovation, rehabilitation or replacement or (ii) of real estate with new structures and improvements in conservation, redevelopment, or rehabilitation areas. (i) The General Assembly may by general law allow the governing body of any county, city, or town to exempt or partially exempt from taxation any generating equipment installed after December thirty-one, nineteen hundred seventy-four, for the purpose of converting from oil or natural gas to coal or to wood, wood bark, wood residue, or to any other alternate energy source for manufacturing, and any co-generation equipment installed since such date for use in manufacturing. (j) The General Assembly may by general law allow the governing body of any county, city, or town to have the option to exempt or partially exempt from taxation any business, occupational or professional license or any merchants’ capital, or both. (k) The General Assembly may by general law authorize the governing body of any county, city, or town to provide for a partial exemption from local real property taxation, within such restrictions and upon such conditions as may be prescribed, of improved real estate subject to recurrent flooding upon which flooding abatement, mitigation, or resiliency efforts have been undertaken.

Local Lions Clubs volunteer at Gold Cup racing competition On Saturday, 27 October a team made up of members from the Local Warrenton Lion’s club, led by their President, Lion Jan Cornelius assisted by members of the Culpeper Mid-Day Lions and members of the Remington Lions Club joined forces to support the Fall event of the Gold Cup racing competition. This event is the major fund racing project for the Warrington Lions Club. Funds raised such as the Gold Cup races, annual fruit sales, broom and Christmas decoration sales are used to support various charitable activities throughout

the county of Fauquier. The motto of the Current Governor of District 24 L, Mrs. Wilma Murphy is teamwork can overcome obstacles was on display during this event. This year the number of members of the Warrington club fell short of the required workforce necessary to assure that the public attending this evert were supported to the extent they deserve. Lion Cornelius put a call for assistance and the clubs lead by the Remington Club, and the Zone Chairman of Zone 2 of the Mid-Day Lions of Culpeper responded with a loud

Roar, we will help. The workforce gathered at the Remington Lions Clubhouse on Route 29 near the intersections of Highways 28 and 29 and proceeded in a caravan to the sight of the Gold Cub event. Thankfully, after a damp start, the weather cleared and despite a bit of discomfort there were no casualties. The Lions Club of Warrenton is looking forward to the upcoming spring event. Hopefully the club membership will be able to support this event with

PROPOSED CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT ARTICLE X. Taxation and Finance. Section 6-A. Property tax exemption for certain veterans and their surviving spouses and surviving spouses of soldiers killed in action. BALLOT QUESTION Shall the real property tax exemption for a primary residence that is currently provided to the surviving spouses of veterans who had a one hundred percent service-connected, permanent, and total disability be amended to allow the surviving spouse to move to a different primary residence and still claim the exemption? EXPLANATION Present Law The Constitution of Virginia currently requires the General Assembly to exempt from taxation the principal place of residence of any veteran who has been determined by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to have a 100 percent service-connected, permanent, and total disability. This tax exemption is also provided to the surviving spouse of such a veteran, so long as the surviving spouse continues to occupy that property as the surviving spouse’s principal place of residence. Proposed Amendment The proposed amendment would allow the surviving spouse of any veteran who has been determined by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to have a 100 percent service-connected, permanent, and total disability to continue to claim the tax exemption currently provided, even if the surviving spouse moves to a new principal place of residence that is owned by the surviving spouse. A “yes” vote will allow these surviving spouses to move to a new principal place of residence that is owned by the surviving spouse and still claim the tax exemption. A “no” vote will not allow such surviving spouses to move and still claim the tax exemption. FULL TEXT OF AMENDMENT Amend Section 6-A of Article X of the Constitution of Virginia as follows: ARTICLE X TAXATION AND FINANCE Section 6-A. Property tax exemption for certain veterans and their surviving spouses and surviving spouses of soldiers killed in action. (a) Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 6, the General Assembly by general law, and within the restrictions and conditions prescribed therein, shall exempt from taxation the real property, including the joint real property of husband and wife, of any veteran who has been determined by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs or its successor agency pursuant to federal law to have a one hundred percent service-connected, permanent, and total disability, and who occupies the real property as his or her principal place of residence. The General Assembly shall also provide this exemption from taxation for real property owned by the surviving spouse of a veteran who was eligible for the exemption provided in this subdivision, so long as the surviving spouse does not remarry. This exemption applies to the surviving spouse’s principal place of residence without any restriction on the spouse’s moving to a different principal place of residence. (b) Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 6, the General Assembly by general law, and within the restrictions and conditions prescribed therein, may exempt from taxation the real property of the surviving spouse of any member of the armed forces of the United States who was killed in action as determined by the United States Department of Defense, who occupies the real property as his or her principal place of residence. The exemption under this subdivision shall cease if the surviving spouse remarries and shall not be claimed thereafter. This exemption applies regardless of whether the spouse was killed in action prior to the effective date of this subdivision, but the exemption shall not be applicable for any period of time prior to the effective date. This exemption applies to the surviving spouse’s principal place of residence without any restriction on the spouse’s moving to a different principal place of residence and without any requirement that the spouse reside in the Commonwealth at the time of death of the member of the armed forces.

Boy Scout Troop 197 supports Germanna Historical Society Boy Scout Troup 197, sponsored by the Lake of the Woods Church, supported the Germanna Historical Society with the construction of two benches, a picnic table, and a cooking and preparation table. Life Scout Matthew Delahoussaye devised and directed this activity as a part of his Eagle Scout Project. These benches and tables were constructed at LOWC’s scout cabin and then moved to the Germanna property where they are now supporting members and visitors. In a previous Eagle Scout project, now Eagle Scout Christian Colson designed and built an outdoor chapel for the scout cabin. Christian received Scouting’s highest award for this work, in a ceremony on June 2nd, which included a special segment of the ceremony based upon his membership with the Brotherhood of the Order of the Arrow, scouting’s highest award. Our troop has been very active in serving our community in a variety of other projects including conducting numerous old and worn out flag retirement ceremonies and maintaining firewood for those in need during the wintertime. We are especially proud of the very high per-

centage of our scouts (many times higher than the national scouting average) who obtain the coveted Eagle Scout status by virtue of their contributions to our community. Our fund raising activities (waffle breakfasts at the church, selling Christmas wreaths and supporting the Marine Corps Marathon through after-race road cleanup) make possible our summer camping trip to Camp Shenandoah, as well as the fall Apple Harvest Camporee in Palmyra, VA, the Camp Crockett camping trip to Madison, VA which included forestry merit badge training at “James Madison’s Montpelier,” and the future “Klondike” winter camping trip where we will design and build sleds for carrying cold weather camping gear. The Lake of the Woods scouts of Troop #197 would like to thank LOWC and our community for all of their support. Our goal is return this support by helping our neighbors through community programs. We encourage all of you to help to make this possible by purchasing Christmas wreaths at the LOW front gate over Thanksgiving weekend.
