Riggleman dashes Cockburn bid to turn red 5th a shade of purple By John McCaslin Rappahannock News Staff Republican Denver Riggleman, a central Virginia distillery owner and latecomer to the 5th district congressional race, defeated Democrat Leslie Cockburn, a resident of Rappahannock County, in Tuesday’s midterm election. With all 330 district precincts reporting, Riggleman secured 165,107 votes (53.24 percent) to Cockburn’s 144,493 (46.59 percent). There were 540 write-ins. “It was a good race,” an elated Riggleman told the Rappahannock News by telephone late Tuesday night. Praising his Democratic opponent, he said it’s time to “move on, and work at what’s best for Virginia. One gets pretty emotional right now after such a long and hard-fought race. I wish Leslie all the best.” On Wednesday morning, Cockburn wrote to this newspaper: “We ran a great campaign in an extremely difficult district. It will have the lasting effect of giving people hope from Danville to Fauquier and inspiring others to take up the fight.” It was beyond a satisfying victory for Riggleman, a U.S. military vet-

eran who up until Election Day was seen as running neck and neck with Cockburn, a former investigative journalist. Just recently the 5th district was labeled a “toss up” by the University of Virginia’s Larry Sabato, although internal GOP polling had given Riggleman a 10 percentage point lead. After voting early Tuesday in Afton, Riggleman and his wife Christine hit the road for a full day of last-minute campaigning. He visited Bedford, Franklin, Pittsylvania, Appomattox, Fluvanna, and Albemarle counties, as well as the city of Danville on the North Carolina border. He then headed back north to await election returns at a restaurant brewery near his home. Even in her home base of Rappahannock County, Cockburn didn’t fare as well as some might have expected. Riggleman captured 2,040 of Rappahannock’s votes (52.56 percent) to Cockburn’s 1,835 (47.28 percent). There were six write-ins. Voters surrounding Chester Gap went overwhelmingly for Riggleman, giving the Republican more than 71 percent of the tally (233 votes to Cockburn’s 93). In Amissville, it was a similar outcome — 65 percent of the ballots went to Riggle-

man (460 votes to 251). In Castleton, 53 percent of voters preferred Riggleman (324 votes) compared to Cockburn’s 47 percent (290 votes). It was closer in the precinct surrounding Washington, where Riggleman garnered 370 votes (51 percent) to Cockburn’s 357. The only two Rappahannock precincts that went for the Democrat surrounded the villages of Sperryville and Flint Hill. Poll goers in the former awarded Cockburn 355 votes (54 percent) to Riggleman’s 305, although in Flint Hill she barely edged her opponent, 202 votes to 197. The progressive platform of Cockburn, embraced certainly by Democrats but not nearly the number of Republican crossovers she banked on to put her over the top, followed more than a year of grassroots organizing by the candidate in 21 counties stretching from Northern Virginia to North Carolina — a district larger than New Jersey. Cockburn, who sought to become the first woman elected to James Madison’s former seat, logged some 85,000 miles on her car during the campaign, using her home in Rappahannock County as her pit stop. Driven to run for Congress by

the election of Donald Trump, she immediately pledged to protect the Affordable Care Act, advocate for Medicare for all, fight opioid addiction, protect the environment and immigrant families, work to restore racial harmony, and fight for women’s equal rights, work and pay — a platform contrary to the president’s White House agenda. Once the race was declared for Riggleman, National Republican Congressional Committee spokeswoman Maddie Anderson stated of Cockburn: “The Democrats put forth one of the most radical candidates in the country, and it massively backfired. Denver Riggleman fits the district and will represent Virginians well. The NRCC is proud to congratulate Congressman-elect Denver Riggleman.” A prominent journalist, filmmaker and author, Cockburn said it was mainly Trump’s “attacks” on the Fourth Estate that sealed her bid for Capitol Hill, “because he was pointing at reporters and saying you are the enemy of the people, and that is something that is very un-American and shocking. And to do that to the FBI? It’s kind of beyond belief. But it means we all better stand up and do something about it.”

Spanberger upsets Brat in District 7 race By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer Abigail Spanberger and Virginia Democrats pulled off a shocking win Tuesday evening. Spanberger defeated Republican incumbent Dave Brat in the Va. District 7 congressional race by a narrow margin. Spanberger’s victory secures the Democrats a seat in a notorious Republican hotbed in Virginia. “I’m honored to stand before you as Congresswoman-elect,” Spanberger said to a raucous crowd in Richmond Tuesday evening. “We focused on the needs of the people, the voters. We stood up for American values and we brought respect and decency back.” With one precinct remaining, Spanberger leads Brat 50.08% to

48.66%. Spanberger has 170,737 votes to Brat’s 165,899 as of 7:30 a.m. Wednesday. Libertarian Joseph Walsh made an impact in the race, siphoning away 4,135 votes from the two candidates. Brat a former economics professor at Randolph Macon, famously upset House Majority Whip Eric Cantor four years ago in the Republican primary. This time, he was on the end of the shocking defeat. Spanberger received the endorsement of former Republican Virginia Senator John Warner earlier in the week. The race has been contentious, with the only debate occurring in Culpeper - where Brat said voting for Spanberger is “a vote for the Nancy Pelosi’s liberal agenda.” Spanberger has campaigned

Abigail Spanberger hard for healthcare and uniting America. During her speech Tuesday, she stood beside a sign that read "Love, not hate, makes America great." The last time a Democrat served in District 7 was John Marsh Jr. from 1963-1971. The

district has voted Republican ever since, until now. Brat won Culpeper County with 11,286 votes to Spanberger’s 7,906. Brat had 57 percent of the vote in Culpeper County compared to Spanberger’s 40 percent. In pivotal Henrico County however, Spanberger shockingly won 58 percent of the votes (58,002) to Brat’s 40 percent (40,443). With the margin being so thin, a recount is highly likely. According to Title 24.2, Chapter 8 of the Code of Virginia, the state’s recount procedures and processes, a candidate can request a taxpayer-funded recount if the margin of victory separating him or her from the winning candidate does not exceed 0.5 percent. In order to initiate such a recount, the candidate must petition the circuit court.

Culpeper rejects referendum on community center By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer Culpeper County voters said “no” to a proposed community center Tuesday night. The referendum asking voters if Culpeper County should issue a bond of $13,144,000 for a proposed community center failed by a margin of 2,147 votes. No received 10,700 votes (55.58%) while yes received 8,553 votes (44.4%). The question on the ballot - question 3 - 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?" According to Culpeper County Administrator John Eggertson, the community center can be paid for without tax increases if “revenues continue at

their current level.” Upon hearing the results, Catalpa District supervisor Sue Hansohn said she was disappointed. “I think it’s sad for the families that won’t have a place for the kids to go,” she said. “It’s always been about families.” Asked what would happen next, she said “it’s not over.” “People have been asking for this for years,” Hansohn said. “I’m not giving up on families.” Ian Phillips, spokesperson for the Committee for Improving Quality of Life in Culpeper, said that when Eastern View High School was built, a loan was taken out for $49 million at a little over 2 percent interest. That’s what was at stake with the referendum vote. “The people have spoken on the financial aspects of the project, so they have taken a very valuable fiscal tool off the table for the board of supervisors,” Phillips said. Chair of the Culpeper County Parks and Recreation Advisory CommitteeTom Crosley said the Culpeper County Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee has been working on alternative recreation center plans in the event that the referendum #3 did

The referendum asking Culpeper County voters if they would support funding a $13.1 bond for a proposed communtiy center failed 55% to 44% Tuesday. not pass. "As the Committee moves forward with a design and operational plans, it is with great anticipation that community partners and supporters will become involved so that the project will become a true effort by the total community," Crosley said. In the town of Culpeper, the West Fairfax District voted against the community center by a margin of 73 votes (1,115 to 1,072). The East Fairfax District voted for the referendum, 1,000 yes votes to 898 no votes. The only county precinct to vote yes for the referendum was Jeffersonton where yes votes totaled 830 to 763 no

votes. The BOS had crafted a sample memorandum of understanding with the Rappahannock Area YMCA, a group that could manage the community center. There is no agreement with the YMCA currently, but they were the only entity to answer a request for information by the board of supervisors earlier this summer. The topic has been a contentious one, with groups in opposition alleging that the bonds will increase real estate taxes, that the YMCA will not manage the property efficiently and that there is no public transportation to the proposed Catalpa location.

enewton donates $2,500 to Pamper Me Pink fund By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer Elizabeth Newton loves Culpeper. The jewelry designer and entrepreneur was so impressed with the town during her visit to Pepperberries Oct. 2 that she earmarked a portion of her proceeds in October for the Pamper Me Pink fund - a fund originally created by Pepperberries owner Sharon Clark to help provide mammograms for the community. On Monday, Pepperberries got word that enewton will be donating $2,5000 to the Pink fund. It was Clark’s energy and the town’s charm that spoke to Newton during her visit. “My life was forever changed today,” Newton said in an Instagram post. “The experience I had at Pepperberries and meeting people in this amazing town is something I will hold onto forever. Culpeper, I am blown away by how such a small charming town has pulled together and genuinely supported one another and local business. “Because of this, they have amazing restaurants, amazing shopping, happy and joyful people and are incredibly inclusive. Pepperberries, you 2018_HOH_Ad_Cpep.pdf 1 11/5/18 don’t need to write a book on how to

treat a customer, you need to be a destination for all trying to get better or trying to figure it out. I amy beyond honored to call you a partner and friend.” Clark and her staff met Newton in Atlanta at the annual gift show - the largest in the nation. A sales rep that serves Pepperberries had been pitching enewton jewelry for about a year and a half but Clark wasn’t sure she wanted to add another jewelry line at the time. That was, until she met the owner herself. She laughs about the meeting, thinking she was only going to see the jewelry but was quickly told that Newton was going to meet with her as well. “I was shocked,” Clark said. “Sheila and I were there for literally three hours just having conversations. We never touched a piece of jewelry in three hours. By the time I finished the conversation I was in love with her.” Newton, a mother to triplet 12-year-old girls and a 9-year-old boy, juggles being a mother, wife and entrepreneur while churning out custom jewelry.

Blue and Red Santa Project gets increased visibility with donation By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer One Culpeper Town Police department vehicle is turning heads this holiday season. Unveiled during the Downtown Halloween Trick or Treat, the new Blue and Red Santa project vehicle will be seen throughout town through Dec. 1. The Blue and Red Santa Project is a joint effort between the Town of Culpeper Police Department and Culpeper County Volunteer Fire Department Co. 1. There are only five Saturdays left until the two will use donated funds to purchase Christmas gifts for needy children in the Culpeper Area. The project is funded solely through donations and the CPD is hoping the increased visibility will help. The wrap was donated by Jonathan James of Xpress Copy, who reached out to the department and was able to turn around the project in a day. “Xpress Copy approached us and they wanted to partner with the Blue and Red Santa project,” CPD Major Chris Settle said. “We

Clark said that at times in the past she has looked for the next big thing, but sometimes that means you miss something truly special. “We’re always looking for the next big thing,” she explained. “I think in retail business, what I have discovered is that if you keep looking for the next big thing, you might fail. I’m not sure the next big thing is going to be readily available to the small business gift shops.” Once Newton and Clark met, their partnership bloomed and Pepperberries started carrying the product in August. By October, sales had been brisk and Newton happened to be in Virginia and made plans to stop at two stores - one in Richmond and Pepperberries. “She said ‘this is just amazing,’” Clark said.

thought what better way to promote the Blue Red Santa Project was with a vehicle wrap to let residents know where to go on our Facebook page or the phone numbers to call to donate.” Donations can be made by visiting www. facebook.com/blueandredsantaproject/, calling 540-829-5517 or 540-825-8777 or by mailing contributions to The Blue and Red Santa Project, P O Box 579, Culpeper, VA 22701. The wrap, which features a Christmas scene of presents, reindeer and snow, is a great way for the public to partner with the CPD, chief Chris Jenkins said. “We’ve got a ton of comments and we literally picked it up this afternoon,” Jenkins said during trick or treat. “Hopefully it will be an attention getter.” Jenkins said that he’s seen an increase in the need as the project enters its third year. “It’s extremely important, the community has responded and each year it’s getting bigger and bigger but the needs are greater,” Jenkins said. “This is what it’s all about, to be able to bring a little joy to people who might not be able to get it.”

“She said that she had never walked into a store before that was new to E. Newton that she was so proud of the way it was represented.” As she was walking out the store, she turned and surprised Clark with the news that she would donate funds. “She’s getting ready to leave and said that every year on their website they put up ‘share their stories’ about a woman who has breast cancer and she sends them a little cross necklace,” Clark said. “Any of the jewelry in October that she sells she will donate a portion of the proceeds to the Pamper Me Pink fund.” Clark was blown away, and proud to be a partner with enewton. She touts their jewelry has being convenient, classic and elegant. “One of the things about her jewelry is that it’s super lightweight,” Clark said. “She said if you can ever feel her earrings, they aren’t E.

HISTORY A Special Event of Unity and Brotherly Love ZANN’S PLACE

Everyone is invited to attend a “Remembrance and Reflection” event on Sat. November 17th at the Culpeper Baptist Church at 2 PM. The music and remarks will fill you with a sense of unity and provide an opportunity to embrace those whose grief has been neglected. My dad ingrained in a most important lesson: “I am my brother’s keeper,” founded in the understanding that my position in the community, my health, my wealth (if I had any) and other positives were not mine to possess due to some entitled intrinsic birthright. Therefore, according to Jack Nelson, I had a duty to others.

Trying to live up to that idea has not always placed me in a comfort zone. Nonetheless, I do not disavow the accuracy of his pronouncement. Republican presidential candidate George H. W. Bush’s most remembered campaign slogan was a call for a "kinder, gentler nation." I say hooray for President Bush and his courage to speak about such an ambitious goal. We must not give up on Bush’s call for a “kinder and gentler nation.” The event is “A Remembrance and Reflection” of the tragic deaths of three men documented to have been lynched in Culpeper County. It is a very special commemoration of the 100-year anniversary of the murder of one of those three, Charles Allie Thompson. I believe President Bush would join others in heralding the event as an opportunity to share a collective and individual sorrow for the pain of

We grieve with friends, neighbors and family over the loss of a loved one from natural disasters, war, drugs, suicide or the violent actions of terrorists.

HOME & GARDEN Monarch butterfly population responds to milkweed plantings The Monarch butterfly makes the longest insect migration in the world, even though it weighs, on average, less than a paper clip. Traveling to Mexico under its own wing power from Canada and the United States east of the Rocky Mountains, it might fly as much as 2,500 miles (over 4,000 kilometers) to get there. Once taken for granted by hawk watchers as fellow travelers of migrating hawks, the orange-and-black butterflies started to become fewer and far less seen as we entered the 21st century. By 2012, the population of this species took a precipitous turn for the worse. The late Lincoln Brower, a professor and Monarch expert at Sweet Briar College in Virginia, worked hard to bring its plight to the public’s attention. He pointed out that one of the major problems for this insect’s decline in numbers was the loss of its caterpillar food plant, and he urged folks to plant milkweeds for it. And it’s apparent that they responded to his plea! An abundance of these butterflies has been spotted here, there, and everywhere this fall, making for a phenomenal comeback. At hawk watch sites (locations known to be good for viewing migrating hawks) in Virginia, Monarch after Monarch has been seen winging its way south. On Afton Mountain, site of my local hawk watch, September 26 turned out to be a day of uncountable numbers of the insects. They could be seen flying nonstop, high and low and all around at every level. The site’s official report for that day included the note that “1500+” Monarchs had passed by. At every hawk watch site in Virginia, from the northeast to the southwest, as well as on the Eastern Shore, hawk watchers have spotted and counted Monarch butterflies on non-rainy days, attesting to the profusion of these insects heading south. This abundance of Monarchs signifies that an abundance of caterpillars fed upon an abundance of milkweed plants during this year’s breeding season. The only way to account for such a spectacular return of these insects is to give credit where credit is due—to the many folks who planted milkweed, whether they did so individually in their own gardens or as part of a group effort on public lands. Even the Virginia Department of Transportation assisted the butterflies by leaving many road

medians unmown this summer where Common Milkweed (Asclepias syriaca) sprouted and undoubtedly fed Monarch caterpillars. As my friend, David White, told me, the “Monarch numbers are delightfully inspiring and hopeful.” But please note: This is not the end of the story. For the Monarchs to make it to their overwintering site in the mountains of Mexico, they must obtain nourishment along the way. It takes energy to fly, which they obtain from nectarproducing flowers. If you did not grow late-blooming plants this year, you can plan now to grow some next year. Goldenrod suits the bill perfectly, as does zinnia—and don’t forget the milkweed, of course! If you find growing shrubs to be easier than growing flowers, Glossy Abelia (Abelia x grandiflora) is a superb choice. It begins blooming in spring and continues to frost if it continues to get full sun throughout the fall, providing nectar for hummingbirds in addition to many species of butterflies and moths. If you only have room for potted plants, not to worry! They can also assist Monarchs to reach their destination in good health. One of my favorites is Lantana camara, a member of the Verbena Family, the plants of which make lots of nectar-filled blooms all summer to frost, feeding hummingbirds, bees, butterflies, and moths. The Monarchs that get to Mexico must survive the winter in large numbers before we can say the species is truly recovering. In fact, the wintering numbers fell the past two years. During the winter of 1996-97, the butterflies covered approximately 44 acres (18 hectares) of forest. In 201718, that number was only about 6 acres (about 2.5 hectares) which was down from the 2016-17 observation of approximately 7 acres (about 3 hectares). Although the population sometimes goes up, as it has this year, Monarch numbers have generally continued to decline. Nonetheless, the astounding population increase this year is a wonderful sign for future breeding success. It demonstrates that people care and that they are willing to do what needs to be done to help maintain our unique, and thus very special, Monarch migration spectacle. Lincoln Brower was willing to personally advocate for this species that he spent decades studying and admiring, which is highly unusual among scientists who generally do not

But the possibility of the Monarch migration coming to an end was almost more than he could bear. Jennifer Jowdy, a hawk watcher I met this year from Charlottesville, Virginia, told me that she liked “to think that [the Monarchs] were

rising up, in honor of Lincoln Brower.” It’s a wonderful sentiment about a wonderfully spirited researcher who brought the plight of the Monarch to our attention and helped move people to take action on its behalf. The success of their efforts have been easily visible and are to be highly commended.

Days on Market: Homes continue to sell faster in most of the Greater Piedmont Region which indicates strong demand in the market and a low supply of active listings available. On average, homes sold in 71 days, which is 3 days faster than the 3​rd quarter a year ago. Notably, about 1 out of every 4 homes sold in the 3​rd​ quarter region-wide were on the market for 10 days or less. Culpeper County: O ​ n average, homes sold in 54 days in Culpeper County in the 3​rd quarter, 6 days faster than a year ago.

Analysis of the Culpeper County Housing Market As the summer housing market comes to a close in the Greater Piedmont Region, there are some early signs of a slowdown, however it is still too early to tell if a trend is emerging and will need to be monitored. Sales declined in the region for the second quarter in a row. Flattening sales have also occurred in the national-level housing market, which could suggest a softening of demand. Despite declining sales, home prices in the region continue to rise, a reflection of the low level of active listings available and continued buyer demand locally. Summary highlights from the market data this quarter include: Home prices continue to rise steadily in the region, a trend that has been occurring now for

5 years. The average sales price rose 5.3% and the median sales price climbed 5.0% compared to the 3rd quarter of 2017. For the second consecutive quarter there were fewer sales in the Greater Piedmont Region compared to last year. Sales fell 8.0% from last year, the sharpest drop in 4 years. Sold dollar volume declined by 3.2% from a year ago, the second decline nearly 2 years. Even with the rise in sales prices in the region, the decline in sales led to the drop-in dollar volume. The average days on market continues to decline in the region a reflection of the low inventory available. On average homes sold in 71 days in the Greater Piedmont region, 3 days faster than last year.

➤ Market, from Page 10 the same time last year, an 8.0% decline. This is the sharpest quarter-over-quarter decline in sales for the region in 4 years, though it is still too early to determine if a trend is emerging. Declining sales also occurred at the county-level: Culpeper County: There were 172 sales in Culpeper County in the 3rd quarter, an 18.9% decline from last year, a drop of 40 sales. Home Prices: Despite the declining sales in the region, home prices continue to rise at the region-level and in many of the counties. The increasing sales prices are reflective of limited supply of active listings which remains at a historically low level. At $363,980 the average sales price in the region rose over $18,000 from the 3rd quarter a year ago, a 5.3% increase. Similar trends occurred with the median sales price. At $315,000 the median sales price in the Greater Piedmont Region rose 5.0% from this time last year, a gain of $15,000. Culpeper County: At $293,410, the median sales price in Culpeper County fell slightly, down 1.5% from a year ago, a drop of $4,440. Active Listings: The num-

ber of active listings in the region remained relatively flat compared to last year. There were 1,149 active listings at the end of the 3rd quarter, 2 fewer than a year ago, a modest 0.2% drop. The inventory of homes for sales has been declining sharply for the past few years, this quarter is the first sign of moderation for this metric. Several of the counties in the region also had relatively small reductions in the number of active listings and some had increases compared to last year. Culpeper County: There were 310 active listings in Culpeper County at the end of the 3rd quarter, 32 more than this time last year, an 11.5% increase. Days on Market: Homes continue to sell faster in most of the Greater Piedmont Region which indicates strong demand in the market and a low supply of active listings available. On average, homes sold in 71 days, which is 3 days faster than the 3rd quarter a year ago. Notably, about 1 out of every 4 homes sold in the 3rd quarter region-wide were on the market for 10 days or less. Culpeper County: On average, homes sold in 54 days in Culpeper County in the 3rd quarter, 6 days faster than a year ago. CENTURY 21 ® Global Rebrand

Number of homes sold fell in most of Fredericksburg’s real estate market in September Home sales declined in most of the Fredericksburg real estate market in September, according to Long & Foster Real Estate’s Market Minute report. Fredericksburg City experienced the largest drop in the number of homes sold last month, falling by 58 percent. While Caroline, Culpeper and Spotsylvania counties also saw double-digit decreases, home sales rose by 7 percent in Stafford County. Long & Foster Real Estate’s Market Minute report for the Fredericksburg region includes Fredericksburg City and Spotsylvania, Stafford, Culpeper and Caroline counties. Median sale prices rose in three parts of the region in September, including a 9 percent increase in Spotsylvania County, and an 8 percent increase in Culpeper County. Active inventory levels varied in the Fredericksburg region last month, with Culpeper County and Fredericksburg City experiencing increases of 7 percent and 1 percent, respectively. The Fredericksburg region saw homes sell at a steady pace in September, with days on market averages ranging from 28 days in Culpeper County to 67 days in Fredericksburg City. Lack of homes for sale has de-

pressed the number of properties sold month after month, and that was particularly pronounced in September, said Larry “Boomer” Foster, president of Long & Foster Real Estate. Going forward, prices will likely climb beyond the reach of more buyers as mortgage interest rates rise toward the 5 percent mark and wage growth fails to keep up with current cost trends. “We are getting to the point where we are going to have affordability challenges,” Foster said. “These trends are hyper-local, and buyers need to engage the services of a local Long & Foster agent to walk them through what’s happening in their own backyard.” The numbers tell a broad story of a market that has seen limited supply consumed by demand, and that is now eroding the number of units sold, Foster said. High demand and low supply could mean higher home prices, but in this case, consumers don’t have more money to spend, especially with rising interest rates. “Owning a home is still the best way to build wealth, but the longer people wait, the more it’s going to cost them,” Foster said. “If you are in the entry-level price point, or one level up, there isn’t much to buy.”

H E A LT H The Dos and Don’ts of adjusting to the time change In the early morning hours of Sunday, November 4, Daylight Savings Time officially came to an end as we turned our clocks back and were rewarded with an extra hour in our day. The 25-hour day is a once-a-year treat, however. Between now and March, we’ll have one less hour of daylight in the evening. The reaction to fewer daylight hours varies by individual. Some are merely annoyed to leave the office after dark. Others experience Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) – seasonal depression associated with the decrease in daylight. For many, sleep schedules go awry as they adjust to an earlier nightfall. Effects on Sleep Schedules Naturally, people begin to feel drowsy as the sky darkens. That’s because our bodies’ circadian rhythms – our internal clocks – keep us alert or make us drowsy at certain points in the day. In response to nighttime the body signals the brain to release melatonin, a hormone that makes us ready for sleep. However, there are steps you can take to adjust your circadian rhythm so the time change doesn’t negatively affect your sleep schedule. Here are sleep tips from the physician experts at Novant Health UVA Health System Culpeper Medical Center. Get as much sunlight as possible. Spending time in the outdoors, especially in the afternoon, can lead to a better night’s sleep. Bright, natural light helps the brain recognize it’s daytime and puts off production of melatonin. Can’t get

outdoors during the day? A light box that simulates sunshine can also be used. Turn up the heat. Cool environments lead to a drop in body temperature, which triggers the body to produce melatonin. That’s why people often sleep best in slightly cool rooms. To help avoid the early onset of melatonin secretion, keep your home’s temperature relatively warm. Stick to a bedtime schedule. Try to turn in at your regular bedtime, particularly in the days immediately after Daylight Savings Time ends. Keep your brain stimulated until about an hour before you turn out the lights. Concentrating on a puzzle, playing a game or journaling can keep your mind active and away from thoughts of hopping into bed. Another tactic: set an alarm for starting your nightly routine to make sure you don’t brush and floss until just before bed. Get moving. Incorporating light exercise into your routine later in the day will help keep you energized until it’s time for bed. Instead of “resting your eyes” after dinner, take a walk or do household chores that keep your brain alert and your heart rate elevated. Eat energizing foods and caffeinate if you must. Caffeine – in healthy doses – can be a wonderful thing. If the darkness really affects you and you’re concerned about dozing off midway through dinner, have your

morning cup of coffee closer to lunchtime. Snacking on fruit fuels your body with healthier sugars that won’t lead to a crash later in the afternoon. Balancing your meals with carbohydrates for quick energy, and protein-packed foods for long-lasting

energy is another great way to keep your energy levels up. Still having difficulty maintaining a healthy sleep schedule? Speak with your primary care physician. To find a physician, novanthealthuva.org/ findadoctor.

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.

What’s Happening NOV. 15

FILM • “Dogfight” (Warner Bros., 1991 – Rated R*) Set in San Francisco in 1963, this original and thought-provoking drama chronicles the brief relationship between a young Marine (River Phoenix) who is about to be shipped out to Vietnam and the rather plain aspiring folk singer (Lili Taylor) who teaches him a few important lessons about life and the treatment of women. Presented as part of a series of films from contemporary women directors from the 1970s to the present, this is the second feature film directed by Nancy Savoca, who also directed “True Love” (1989), “Household Saints” (1993) and “Union Square” (2011). Savoca was mentored by John Sayles, and she in turn, has mentored up-and-coming filmmakers through the IFP’s Emerging Visions program. 35mm archival film print. 92 min. *No one under the age of 17 will be admitted without a parent or guardian. Free, at the Library of Congress Packard Campus Theater located at 19053 Mt. Pony Rd. in Culpeper, VA. No reservations taken.

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.

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.

Taking the next steps forward THE MARSHALL PLAN

As we close the curtain on Tuesday’s midterm election Marshall Conner the will of the people provided a mixed bag of successes or failures—all depending on who you talk to. So many people were emotionally invested in a win for their ego or party. There were a few hopeful signs in this election including a large voter turnout, a rejection of extremes and a denial of a local referendum that needed greater cooperation and transparency from town, county, community and school leadership. A quote from Alex de Tocqueville’s Democracy in America comes to mind: “The health of a democratic society may be measured by the quality of functions performed by

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Final thoughts on Communicy Center As one comes to the end of a saga, it now being moments before the polls open across Culpeper County. It causes reflections of the past several weeks to fleet through the mind. The one you could find most puzzling is how the discussion of Question # 3, a purely fiscal issue, become a discussion of the a Community Recreational Center or a YMCA? Then a negative Political issue spearheaded by two dedicated Tea Party members. Perhaps when one focuses on misguided principles, you fall in the trap of loosing reality. One minute you are public servants and the next loose cannons on the deck of truth. Perhaps a thimble of light could have replaced jargon and rhetoric. Some of the cornerstones of deflection were to constantly refer to

private citizens.” What continues to trouble me is polarization, the exploitation of identity politics and the political theater of our mass media that moves from crisis to crisis. These are the divisions that make us pawns of parties… not Americans. Another troubling trend is the shrinking number of independent local papers. As election results came in from across the nation it was apparent that fewer and fewer papers were out there covering the news and results. This is a troubling trend for a free press. Who are we as citizens? I have always believed that we are all more alike than we are different. We all want the best for our families, fulfilling careers, health, opportunities for our children and peaceful communities. Last Tuesday, we had a civic duty as Americans to vote--it is the greatest power given to us by our

founding fathers. It is the envy of oppressed people across the globe. The results of our collective votes can stir the pot or tip it over. Our history is important, imperfect, sometimes unfair, sometimes glorious, but it is always uniquely American. We have been a work in progress since our independence. Hopefully, that will never change. This weekend, we honor our nation’s servicemen and women on Veterans Day. Coming from a military family and as a former soldier myself, it has always been important for me to encourage my children to experience the company of veterans. Growing up I found comfort in the military. I grew up on bases where “we all” were green and we took care of each other. My closest friends came from all backgrounds, their faces had many shades of color and their accents varied. Success

was based on merit, hard work and leadership. There’s a promise among soldiers that holds true no matter the situation, “I have your six.” This promise means that you are covered by your comrade from all directions—that you will never be left behind or forgotten. Good luck finding that level of caring in the civilian world. One of the greatest lessons I learned from the military was the simple act of service to community— to constantly work towards making the world better one small step at a time. It’s never easy, but it’s worth the sweat. As we close the books on an election let us look at it’s lessons. Let us take our ribbons or failures home for reflection. Let us shake the hand of our opponents, listen and see each other as Americans. We all have plenty of work to do.

a non-profit doing wonderful things in our community as a business. They like the YMCA are charities. They are are also the organization which discontinued accepting the”Silver Sneakers” program which permitted many seniors use of Powell Wellness Center at reduced or no cost through their insurance programs. Even this outstanding Charitable Foundation placed rates ahead of service, in one development here in Culpeper over twenty percent of the residents lost their exercise programs. One must wonder how many lost their exercise programs County wide? They then focused on cost of membership in a YMCA. Which has a sliding scale membership based upon income. The leaders then put out signs and ran a so called town hall meeting. It was clearly a “Just say no to Question # 3 rally,” with four public servants at the organizing table leading the

meeting. Yet half say, we have not made a decision on the question. Do not actions defeat words? One could dissect the fallacious signs, accusations, character attacks and baseless statements. However, lets limit it to one. On Sunday morning at 8:28 am Mr. Marshall Keene messaged me,”Gary Deal ask you to call the radio station?” My answer “you were the source of my information.” How? He posted on Facebook, we will be on 103.3 at 8:00am Sunday. I called the station requesting equal time, Under Federal Law, they had too. They 103.3 could not comply due to time constraints and they not our side pulled Mr. Keen and Mr. Russell off the air. When they were surprised at 8 a.m. Sunday. They blame someone who has an interest in Quality of Life in Culpeper. However, is a public servant and apparently understands his responsibilities and does not

talk on official matters before they come before the Supervisors. Did Mr Frazier do this at the Town Hall? When questions were asked of the Board of Supervisors, He should have said they are not here. He quickly answered the questions, thus speaking for them and not for himself as a private citizen. Donnie Johnson reported this in the Star Exponent the next day. He is a seasoned reporter. This prompted my filing a formal complaint with the County Attorney about his violating policy and perhaps the law by his actions. We can be confident the County Attorney and Supervisors, as a rules matter and election matter, will as a minimum take appropriate action as to participation related to a possible Community Recreation Center.

'Senior Swag' — Roles in Estate Planning ESTATE STEWARDSHIP Katherine Charapich

“Senior swag!” Don’t judge – stay with me as I expand on the beauty behind the concept.

Recently, I was listening to a sermon given by Steven Furtick, pastor of Elevation Church, and as he was referring to Paul’s letter written to the Philippians while he was in prison, he stated that Paul had “senior swag.” Though Pastor Furtick acknowledged that Paul was in his later years, he wasn’t referring to Paul having many years on his life. What he was sharing was how Paul had reached a point in life where he recognized that his faith was not dependent on his situation and that he was able to move forward and make progress, in spite of the opposition. The wisdom attributed to Paul certainly speaks of one who embodies a commitment to purpose, and an attitude of thankfulness. Having a spirit of thankfulness is a concept one may encounter most around Thanksgiving; however, the precept rings true during all seasons. It is my hope that no matter the age, each of us can claim an expanded version of some “senior swag” – the ability to realize one’s purpose, the drive to achieve such a calling, and the thankfulness for the surrounding elements that support the purpose. One may wonder how “senior swag” and estate planning have any correlation at all, and how having gratitude for anything related to estate planning may even be possible. As I thought on that question, the list of possibilities started out as a few, and then began to expand. To begin, the only reason that I, and I venture out on a limb to say most estate planning attorneys, are able to provide quality service to clients is because of a wide array of people and elements in place that provide wisdom and structure. I am thankful for the following that reveal the true intricacies that make estate planning even possible. The Code of Virginia (the Code), that is well-designed to protect the process of estate planning, and those involved in the effective execution. The Code addresses diverse matters such as the requirements for the establishment of trusts, last will and testaments, powers of attorney, and advance medical directives, as well as what occurs when an individual does not take the time

to put in place such documents. The Code sets forth the duties and requirements of fiduciaries, those who take on roles such as a trustee of a trust, a testator of a will, an agent under a power of attorney, or a guardian and conservator of an incapacitated adult. If parameters for either of these were not in place it is easy to envision the chaos that may ensue, but for those wellthought out statutes. The commissioners of accounts, who are responsible for overseeing the settlement and distribution of estates through the probate process, whether by a last will and testament or intestate. As set forth in §64.2-1200 of the Code, “The judges of each circuit court shall appoint as many commissioners of accounts as may be necessary to carry out the duties of that office. The commissioner of accounts shall have general supervision of all fiduciaries admitted to qualify in the court or before the clerk of the circuit court and shall make all ex parte settlements of the fiduciaries' accounts.” We are so very fortunate within Culpeper and the surrounding counties to have commissioners of accounts who have a wealth of knowledge and are willing to share their wisdom, helping the settlement of estates to run as smoothly as possible. The clerks of the circuit court, who are responsible for handling the probate of the last will and testament - reviewing and approving the last will and testament of the decedent, appointing the executor or estate administrator of the estate – when the decedent died intestate, as well as preparing and receiving documentation related to the settlement of an estate. As was stated about the commissioner of accounts, the same is true with those who hold the position of clerk as well as those who work with the clerk, both within Culpeper and the surrounding counties; those of us who have estate matters benefit from their wealth of experience and dedication to the process that is set forth in the Code. The attorneys who are skilled at being a guardian ad litem. A guardian ad litem is appointed by the court and is a neutral party, acting in the best interests of the senior adult. After interviewing appropriate parties and evaluating medical information, living conditions, and physical and cognitive abilities, the guardian ad litem provides a written opinion to the court on whether the senior adult needs assistance and protection above what is currently

in place. Such an opinion helps the court decide whether the senior adult should be deemed a ward of the Commonwealth and have a guardian appointed. The attorneys who spend their time on matters such as this have a heart for the older adult generation, and are gifted with the ability to put a senior adult at ease, and evaluate situations – many which are extremely layered with medical, financial, and family issues. The financial advisors who provide advice on risk averse investments so that a client’s money can last as long as possible for use towards the client’s quality of life, care, and medical needs. These same advisors are adept at helping to diversify funds if the estate is subject to the prudent investor rule, which unless waived, requires diversification upon the fiduciary taking on his or her position. They are also skilled when transferring funds into trusts, or making distributions from estates. The certified public accountants (CPA) who provide essential tax advice from the very establishment of an estate – the writing of the original documents, to the settlement of an estate when a person passes away. The input of a CPA helps raise the awareness of an estate planning attorney of tax considerations that may apply to a specific client’s portfolio. The CPA’s skills are also needed in the preparation of the filing of the accountings related to probate estates, and the final tax filings of a decedent. Estate planning, as well as estate and elder law matters address some of life’s most sensitive issues. The planning for one’s care and support while on this earth, and the consideration of dispositive terms regarding one’s assets following death, are not easy subject matters for most individuals. I am frequently amazed at the underlying strength, courage, and faith of so many as they face life’s challenges as set before them. As each requires a considerable amount of time and care, the wisdom and expertise of those who hold the positions previously noted, are essential to me as an estate planning attorney when I am providing estate or probate services to a client. And, I claim that element of “senior swag” — that I am so very thankful for the skills and dedication of others, which allows me to deliver on my purpose. Katherine S.

Rappahannock BOS votes 3-2 to kill bike path By Patty Hardee Special to the Rappahannock News At 11:20 p.m. Monday night, after passionate remarks in which he castigated residents at the meeting for acting childish and saying “I'm disappointed to see you arguing and laughing,” Board of Supervisors Chair Roger Welch called for a voice vote on Christine Smith's resolution to deny a large VDOT grant awarded to RappTrails Coalition. Then Welch, the last of five mem-

bers to vote, drove the final stake thru the heart of the School Connector Trail voting “Aye!” This came at the end of a long and especially contentious regular BOS meeting that convened at 2 p.m. and adjourned shortly before the midnight hour, with only a short dinner break. Anticipating an evening session crowd larger than could be accommodated at the Rappahannock County Courthouse, where the BOS usually meets, county Administrator Garrey Curry secured the high school audi-

torium for the evening session. Attendance reached 154 in the 350-seat capacity venue. Despite an agenda packed with other items of importance to the county, it seemed the only topic the public cared about was the trail and Smith’s last-minute resolution to deny the $800,000-plus grant from the Virginia Department of Transportation. RappTrails Coalition had been awarded the grant in June to cover 80 percent of the estimated cost of building the 1.2 mile path between the county’s two public schools. As required by VDOT, the other

20 percent had to be supplied by the county or raised from outside sources. RappTrails raised the other 20 percent and more in private donations and nonprofit grants. And the group continued to fund raise. In a November 5 letter to the BOS, RappTrails’ founder Jane Whitfield reported that RappTrails had raised an additional $105,000 in only one week’s time. This additional amount was to counter earlier citizen concerns about the cost of maintaining the trail for the VDOT-mandated life of 15 years.

'King John' – The Cost of Playing the King CURTAIN CALLS

“The Life and Death of King John” is not considered one of Shakespeare’s “problem” plays; nevertheless, it’s a puzzle to me. The primary puzzle is why Shakespeare ever wrote it. John was known to the ages as “the bad king” (Edward II hadn’t been born yet), but his flaws, more ordinary than tragic, stemmed from his being an unremarkable man with a remarkable lust for getting and keeping power, whether or not he was entitled to it. The endless tussles between him, the king of France, the Pope, his dead brother’s son, and that boy’s dragonmother are the stuff of the play. War, deception, and bloodshed ensue. Only the crown remains for the next round of contenders. Aaron Posner, directing his twentieth production at the Folger, mines the ornate action and curlicues of conflict with a speed that, at least in Act I, suggests the fear of losing the audience’s attention in a tsunami

of confusion. As is common in the Bard’s plays, then and now, multiple actors can appear in multiple roles. Everybody wants something and they want it now. To clarify, Posner has employed the overused drama school device of having the actors address the audience directly, explaining who they are and their purpose, and adding a few attempts at casual, modern humor. (Eleanor – “England’s first badass queen”) The messy – if not incestuous – joint histories of England and France are difficult no matter where the playwright turns. What saves this story of a king we don’t like surrounded by other people we don’t care about is the stellar cast of actors. Finding depths in emotion and meanings in words is their job, but it is even more important when the characters they represent are so uniformly unsympathetic. Sarah Cubbage’s costumes of Victorian-esque lines with layers of vests, capes and buttons neither enhance nor detract from the feeling of a play caught between tragedy and mundanity. Brian Dykstra’s well-focused King John alternates between fear, raging, buttering up his supporters,

and slouching on his throne. It is that oversized throne with an even more oversized crown hovering above it which centralizes Andrew Cohen’s scene design and mutely suggests that no one is entirely up to the task it represents. Lurking at his side is his alpha-

female mother, Eleanor of Aquitaine, (Kate Goehring) who knows a thing or two about royal shenanigans. But she is well-matched by the perpetually outraged Constance, widow of Geoffrey and mother of the “real” heir to the ➤ See Curtain Calls, Page 25

➤ Curtain Calls, from Page 24 throne, Arthur. It is a treat to see the fabulous Holly Twyford in this role, as well as Kate Eastwood Norris slicked down as Philip Faulconbridge, a.k.a. “The Bastard” of Richard the Lionheart. A very different note is played by Megan Graves as the delicate and dangerously placed young Arthur. Howard Overshown plays three roles, but is most notable as Philip, King of France. Every move, every lift of the eyebrow is political. We may wonder that one country would be so embroiled in and opinionated about another country’s succession of monarchs, but that would be to forget that William of Normandy once sailed from France to claim the throne of England. And then there’s the Pope. He, of course, thinks his word is God’s word and therefore the last word, and sends a Legate, Cardinal Pandulph, (Sasha Olinick) to threaten everyone with excommunication if they don’t toe Rome’s line. And so they do. Briefly. Act II moves with more clarity and purpose even as John himself accelerates in his downward spiral. Occasionally France and England stop fighting long enough to join forces, as in their battle at the gates of Anger in Anjou. War on the modestly sized Folger stage takes place somewhere

Once was mildly effective, but this happened twice. The residual leitmotif of “King John” is endless deception and power play, no more devastating than when Hubert (Elan Zafir) is urged to murder young Arthur. In a moving confrontation, Hubert decides to let the boy live and report to the king that he is dead. When Arthur’s dead body (presumably an accident) is discovered and the king blamed, it is Hubert’s fault for misinterpreting the king. That the death of the king only brings another king to the throne does nothing to relieve the futile sense that games of thrones are never won. As minor as “King John” is in the opus of Shakespeare’s history plays, the Folgers’ production is likely as good as it will get, and therefore recommended.

A record 540 people attended to receive information on community resources, have health screenings, get flu shots, and take classes. The event is geared toward older adults, but people of all ages participated. Sixty-five exhibitors providing such services as hearing, home health care, assisted living, voter registration, and volunteer opportunities gave out written information and answered questions from attendees. Other features included chair massage, a senior art display and a visit from Mike Nelms, former Redskin. Major sponsors in-

cluded AARP VA, Fauquier Health, and Culpeper Star Exponent. One of the volunteers from the Lions Sight and Hearing Mobile Unit told Carol Simpson, Executive Director of Aging Together, “We typically see eight to twelve people at a four-hour event and today we’ve screened over 40. What a great day!” Some of the seniors who visited the Expo said that it has become a social event as well, where they see and catch up with friends and neighbors. Next year’s Expo will be on Tuesday, Oct. 8, 2019. Call Aging Together at 540-829-6405 or visit www.agingtogether.org for more information.
