The South East Street Historic District is in a portion of the Town

of Culpeper that grew rapidly during the 1850s with the expansion of the railroad into the area. The district figured heavily in the Civil War through its association with various Union and Confederate military campaigns and encampments. In fact, substantial Union casualties in the area resulted in the establishment in 1867 of the district’s Culpeper National Cemetery (previously listed on the state and national registers) following the Civil War. One of the houses featured on this year’s tour is the Hill Mansion.

ACLU of Virginia files lawsuit against Culpeper County Sheriff, BOS ➤ Lawsuit centers around 287(g) program and the ACLU's contention that Va. is a 'Dillon Rule' state By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer The ACLU of Virginia sued Culpeper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins and the Culpeper County Board of Supervisors Tuesday over an “unauthorized agreement” to use county resources to enforce federal immigration laws. The lawsuit centers around Jenkins decision to enter into a the 287(g) contract with the U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement that allows sheriff ’s deputies to perform certain functions of ICE officers, including detaining them as if in ICE custody. The program is run through the Culpeper County jail. A group of nearly 20 people - about half of them Culpeper locals - listened as ACLU of Virginia Executive Director Claire Guthrie Gastanaga discuss the lawsuit. “The purpose of this lawsuit is to force Sheriff Jenkins to withdraw from his agreement with U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement which is harming the community he was elected to serve and protect,” she said. According to the ACLU, Virginia is a “Dillon Rule” state, meaning local governments only have authority to take actions specifically authorized by the state Constitution or legislature. Neither authorizes localities or constitutional officers to voluntarily take on the responsibility to

enforce federal immigration law directly or to spend local tax revenues to do so. According to Gastanaga, the U.S. Constitution also protects immigrants who are not documented. “They are entitled to the same constitutional rights,” she said. The lawsuit was filed by Michael V. McClary and Christina Stockton against Jenkins and the Board of Supervisors as a result of a pro bono partnership between the ACLU of Virginia and McGuire Woods LLP. Jenkins is identified as a defendant in the lawsuit because he was the local official who entered into the 287(g) agreement and the BOS is a defendant because it allocates funding to the sheriff ’s office. “I think this is ridiculous, I haven’t read it yet, but I can’t believe they did this,” Culpeper County Board of Supervisors Chairman Bill Chase said. The ACLU contends that the program is not “free” as Jenkins has maintained. “While ICE does pay for expenses for training officers and some other direct costs, there is no question that local dollars still into play by, among other things, paying for the salaries and benefits of officers who are under direct and exclusive federal control,” ACLU of Virginia Legal Director Eden Heilman said. Gastanaga could not say how many residents have been affected by the 287(g) program or how many officers have been trained under the program. “The purpose of this litigation is to uphold the rule of law,” Gastanga said. “Culpeper officials will be prevented from engaging in acts not authorized by state law that make everyone in the ➤ See Lawsuit, Page 7

We support our Hispanic neighbors.” Jenkins also faces a federal class-action civil lawsuit brought by the Legal Aid Justice Center and Victor M. Glasberg and Associates. In that lawsuit, Francisco Guardado Rios, the plaintiff in the class action, claims that he was held in the Culpeper County jail past the date he had been ordered released without any legal authority to do so. According to the lawsuit, Guardado Rios was initially legally incarcerated in the jail on state misdemeanor charges, was awaiting his trial and should have been released from custody. He was granted a $1,000 bail, but according to the lawsuit Sheriff Jenkins refused to release him. Gastanaga said that the 287(g) program

HISTORY In Preparation for the Christmas Madness Are you one of the thousands who is reading Santa’s letters with angst, guilt and frustration? Are you angry or depressed because you cannot give your child everything on his or her list? Or worse yet, are you racking up lots of credit card debt to fill the list? Well, worry no longer, there is an answer. Sounds like one of those commercials for an easy no pain fix. But the amazing thing is that the answer rests with you and will only cost you time. It is simple really, all you must do is be a loving parent. Children wish for all kinds of things stimulated by wonderful imaginations, child-like fantasies, TV ads telling them what they must have and a culture that says, “Oh, go on and ask for whatever

ZANN’S PLACE Zann Nelson

you want.” I remember asking for a monkey; yes, a live one. Thankfully, I had parents with better sense than I. There are a plethora of articles, essays, books and blogs about parenting. However, there are a few basic principles that are indisputable. • Children should not rule; respected, yes, in charge, no. • Parenting is not a popularity contest. Frankly, if the child is happy with you all the time, you are probably doing something dreadfully wrong. • Parents must prepare their children for the life that lies ahead. We have all seen the age-old situation where the child receives a huge box with a very expensive toy inside. The parents are standing by with ear-to-ear smiles convinced of the debt inducing decision’s merit. To their dismay the expensive toy is abandoned after 30 minutes for the appeal of untold adventures with the large empty box. The real challenge for parents is to

be the ones in charge and give the child what is important, not necessarily what they think they want. If you could give your child just three things, what would they be? Think on a few ideas Paul Harvey wrote about his grandchildren (edited for this column) I'd really like for them to know about hand me down clothes and homemade ice cream and leftover meat loaf sandwiches. I hope you learn humility by being humiliated, and that you learn honesty by being cheated. I hope you learn to make your own bed and mow the lawn and wash the car. And I really hope nobody gives you a brand new car when you are sixteen. It will be good if at least one time you can see puppies born and your old dog put to sleep. I hope you get a black eye fighting for something you believe in. If you want a slingshot, I hope your Dad teaches you how to make one instead of buying one.

I hope you learn to dig in the dirt and read books. I hope when you talk back to your mother that you learn what ivory soap tastes like. If a friend offers you dope or a joint, I hope you realize he is not your friend. I sure hope you make time to sit on a porch with your Grandma/Grandpa and go fishing with your Uncle. May you feel sorrow at a funeral and joy during the holidays. I hope your mother punishes you when you throw a baseball through your neighbor's window and that she hugs you and kisses you at Hanukah/Christmas time when you give her a plaster mold of your hand. Until next week, be well. Zann Nelson is a researcher specializing in historical investigations, public speaker and award -winning freelance writer and columnist.

Rescue annual fundraising carnival. Red was predeceased by his parents, his brothers Ed and Reid, and his sisters Mabel and Linda. His son Bill (Mauri), who became a well-liked auctioneer, died in 2010. Red is survived by his wife Mary L. Payne; great-nephew Marc Streagle (Beth Conover) and son Jason Miller Streagle; grandchildren Megan Christian (Monte) and Christopher Payne (Eva); great grandchildren Marcus, Malcolm and Matthias Christian; sister Dorothy Ann Clater (Randolph) and brother Franklin Payne (Ann). The community is welcome to attend the memorial service and celebration of Red’s life Dec. 1 at 11 a.m. at Washington Baptist Church, with a reception following in the fellowship hall. Anyone wishing to make a memorial donation might consider Amissville Volunteer Fire and Rescue or the charity of your choice.

WILLIAM L. "RED" PAYNE

Red Payne, a native and lifelong resident of Rappahannock County, died suddenly November 17, 2018 following hospitalization for a fall. The son of Luther and Rosa Payne, Red grew up in Washington, Va. He recently celebrated his 90th birthday.

The Brandy Station Foundation is hosting its annual Holiday Open House at the Graffiti House (19484 Brandy Road, Brandy Station) Saturday, Dec. 8 1-4 p.m. Come enjoy holiday fare and music by the Wilderness Run Players. Free and open to the public. This year, we are pleased to announce the unveiling of the first stage of a new exhibit, Culpeper’s Forgotten Heroes: Black Union Soldiers of Culpeper County, Virginia. This exhibit was researched and curated by BSF Board Member Howard Lambert, who is extremely pleased that the Graffiti

House will be hosting what he believes to be the first permanent exhibit dedicated to Culpeper-born United States Colored Troops (USÇT). The Graffiti House is an appropriate location due to the fact that USCTs were stationed in Brandy Station guarding the Supply Depot. Often forgotten are the brave men from Culpeper who fought and died as members of the USCT. With the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation by President Lincoln, men of color were officially authorized to serve in the Union Army as armed combatants starting in January 1863.

CULPEPER COUNTY

Nicknamed for his hair color, Red was liked for his high spirits and good humor. As a youngster, he and his buddies were guilty of Halloween hijinks such as hoisting a neighbor’s carriage onto the roof of a building. He enjoyed sports and the outdoors, especially playing on the Washington High School basketball and baseball teams, and camping and fishing.

You could frequently find a card game at Locust Shade and Red and Mary also enjoyed the beach, motorcycle riding and touring the country. They spent many hours in these activities with family and friends. They were also volunteers for 25 years at the Amissville Volunteer Fire &

In 1951, Red married the former Mary Miller Latham. They moved to Locust Shade on Richmond Rd. to live in the house built in 1904 by her Grandfather Anderson. In 1953, they welcomed son William L. “Billy” Payne, Jr., and later, great-nephew Marc Streagle joined the family. Red loved children and they reciprocated. Among his many nieces and nephews, he was unequivocally the favorite uncle.

Red enjoyed driving and made a career of it, beginning at a young age by sneaking the family car out of the drive at night and rolling it silently away from the house before starting the engine. He was a student bus driver and picked up and delivered films between the Washington, DC distributor and the theatre in Little Washington where he was the projectionist. He hauled commuters to the Viscose plant in Front Royal and apples from Rappahannock packers to Winchester. He didn’t set out to be a farmer but he was a good one and farmed Locust Shade for all 67 years of his marriage, operating farm vehicles of every type. His last driving job was with the U.S. Postal Service as the carrier for the Amissville route, a job he held for 20 years, first as a substitute and then fulltime. Driving was relaxing and it wasn’t unusual for the Paynes to cap a day of farming by riding around the county.

VIEWS Road of life As the family car traversed the spine of the Appalachian Marshall Conner Mountains on Interstate 81 from Augusta County to our eventual destination in Asheville, North Carolina I reflected on the collection of towns and places along our way that have directly impacted my life. Nearby our first exit from I-64 on to I-81 is Fishburne Military School, in Waynesboro, founded in 1879. It is the oldest and smallest military school for boys in Virginia. I graduated high school there in the mid-1980s. It has been decades since I marched through of the historic archway of the school as a senior cadet. I remember my graduation day clearly. At that point in life everything seemed perfect. The trees inside the grass quadrangle were in bloom dropping white blossoms upon our grey uniforms. Our polished brass gleamed, and medals adorned our chests. Our wills were as strong as our dreams then, yet we had so much to learn. The entire world with all its promise awaited us. There was also a deep sadness at the end of the day—a realization that classmates and friends would be scattered across the globe. In my heart and mind, they were my brothers. We

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

An open letter to Dr. Tom Neviaser Dear Dr. Tom Neviaser: I am writing this in response to your “How I See It” column in the 11-15/21-20 issue of Culpeper Times. I agree with you that Spanberger should be congratulated on winning an “unwinnable” seat in the 7th District. I suppose the only conclusion to be drawn is that she ran on issues that had more appeal to her voters than those who voted for Dave Brat - except in Culpeper County which mightily supported Brat. Now, I do not know what kind of “doctor” you are - perhaps you are not a physician. I could not imagine a

had grown up within the bricks of this historic school. It was the home of my youth. As our car rolled by Waynesboro all those memories returned. I smiled as I noticed a lone black bear sitting by a fence scratching its back as we rolled west then south. The next memory was of a place that defined my late father, the historic Virginia Military Institute. He was a proud member the class of 1966 until his last breath on this earth. It was there that its history, honor code and brotherhood shaped his life. It was there that he met my late mother, a graduate of Greenbrier College. She once told me he had won her heart on a rainy evening. It was there decades later that he found love once again following the passing of my mother when he proposed to my step-mother. I said a silent prayer for dad and offered a salute as we rolled by Lexington. The next town holds a special place in my heart. It’s Buchanan, the birthplace of a beloved pet dog named Angus, a black-and-white Border Collie with clumsy feet and a limitless heart. He was a graduation gift to my wife (then girlfriend) and it shared its life with us through the first 11 years of our family. Angus always made us smile. The next city is Blacksburg, home to Virginia Tech where I dated my wife and graduated. I think about the wonderful education it gave me. I think of days spent on the New River, on campus and at football games. I recall my professors, my first

published articles and movies at the Lyric. I am thankful for this place that inspired me to write again. The final stop on my Thanksgiving trip was Asheville, NC---one of the most interesting and creative cities in the south. My youngest brother’s family lives there—my nephew was born there. It is a natural fit. It has become our favorite place to gather for Thanksgiving. Asheville has many charms. It is a city packed with creative people, fantastic breweries, traditional and non-traditional restaurants. It also has amazing graffiti, music and limitless people-watching opportunities. The city is also surrounded by natural beauty. It has misty mountains, the French Broad River, scenic hikes and plenty of winding roads to explore. On Thanksgiving my family loves to build a fire pit, eat barbeque from 12 Bones and spend time laughing and telling family stories. It just feels right there. On our long drive home each of these places evokes a unique memory. I smile when I consider that this military kid who once found pride in moving from place-to-place has found a long stretch of towns that evoke such a sense of belonging. Christmas music floods the radio as we drive home. It’s always tough to think about hanging lights when all you see for miles are red brake lights flickering every few yards. Drivers picking their noses and a few final rounds of the iPod provide a few last highlights as we leave the mountains and head towards the slowmoving joy of I-95. I am thankful for all the special places along a long winding road.

physician could follow his or her ethical responsibility to “First, do no harm,” by being against an affordable, public health care option which could enroll the very poor as well as the very rich. The Affordable Care Act has become more popular with the American people despite the 60+ attempts to repeal it with nothing to replace it. Who doesn’t want affordable health care? Who would scoff at lower drug prices (which, by the way, are set to rise again) in 2019 after rising in 2018)? Calling for fiscal responsibility also seemed to be a winner: we are seeing little of that coming from our national government. As a recent example, think of the (estimated $220 million) political move to send the United States Army to the Mexican border to “fight” immigrants.

Preventing those from lawfully entering the U.S. and seeking asylum seems terribly selfish on the part of such a wealthy and giving nation. Except for Native Americans, we are all lucky immigrants. No other country has a shining Statue of Liberty, after all. I also agree that Spanberger probably owes some of her success to the Resister movement, of which there are more than 600 groups in this country, and also to those who supported her campaign with a lot of money ($3.6 million). Of course she will support groups that voted for her - wouldn’t any person in politics do the same? As you wrote, Brat, an ultra conservative Tea Party “resister” did ➤ See Letter, Page 21

All of you are aware that the primary responsibility for members of the International Lions is to support Sight and Hearing related issues. This support can be provided in many ways. The Clubs in Culpeper County, Culpeper MidDay and Club 92 as an example procured 156 pair of eye glasses and 17 Hearing Aids for qualified applicants last fiscal year. Any child in Culpeper County is automatically qualified as the motto of those clubs is “no child in Culpeper County in need of eye glasses will not go unserved." All of the Lions Clubs in our local area, i.e., Culpeper, Rappahannock, and Fauquier Counties participate in this effort. The degree of participation is dependent upon financial resources and membership availability. The beginning of the school year marks the beginning of the Sight and Hearing Testing program for students of all of the schools desiring to participate in this effort. Screening is accom-

plished with portable devices for the testing of Sight and Hearing and with the well-known Sight and Hearing van. This year, under the leadership of the local Zone Chairman, Mrs. Lynn Garver, assisted by the Presidents of the individual clubs, Culpeper Mid-Day, 92, Rappahannock, Warrenton, Warrenton Sunrise and Remington, the 175 Members tested 5,885 school children and adults. Of those tested, 330 were referred to various ophthalmologist in their particular area and 312 were referred for additional testing by qualified Hearing professionals. The majority of the Hearing referrals were for the older folks participating in the testing program. Sight and Hearing assistance is but only one area where your local Lions Club members make a difference. Scholarships for graduating students, contributions to various organizations throughout the local area to other nonprofit organizations such as SAFE, Fire and Rescue, the Food Closet, Free Dental Clinic, Soap Box Derby, Hospice and many others is a partial listing of the causes supported by the various clubs.

maintain his principles throughout the campaign. However, according to the site govtrack, his record notes him as one of the least effective and least bipartisan legislators in the Virginia delegation in 2017. Brat did not introduce even one bill that got out of committee, and he led no committees at all. Perhaps voters simply forgot about him. His voting record, however, was sterling: he missed only 11 of 710 votes. As for the myriad investigations surrounding the president (possible collusion in the proven Russian interference in the 2016 elections, election tampering involving “hush” money to two women, the firing of James Comey and Michael Flynn, as well as potential investigations ranging from sexual assault on women to the selection of Matthew Whittaker, I expect that Spanberger will continue to support Mueller’s process, which has bipartisan encouragement. As for the others, I speculate that those involving the most corruption will go forward. An example of this corruption is the abuse of emoluments: it is easy to “donate” one’s salary when one gains 100 times that salary in hotel profits! And, yes, something should be done to promote serious budgetary restraint, now a forgotten hallmark of the party in the White House. There are many instances of the attitude of “let our children pay for it,” but one of the most glaring is the tax gift to corporations and the very rich at the expense of the poor and those in the

middle income bracket. The president has said publicly that he would not benefit from this tax “cut.” Do you know how much our president actually has personally benefitted from this gift to himself? According to The Guardian newspaper, Trump will personally save up to $15 million. Aren’t you as outraged as many of Spanberger’s voters were? Lastly, the nearly historic House gains this year suggest disagreement that there have been significant accomplishments in the current White House. Most of these “accomplishments” were in eliminating necessary rules and regulations on banks and businesses who, in following the American business model, have become exemplars of greed. For example, Executive Orders slashing environmental regulations when a global warming crisis is placing all living things in harm’s way, and not protecting and uniting them as is the constitutional mandate of any American leader, are deplorable, vengeful acts. Think of all the Cabinet members who have had to resign because of corruption, and you will get some insight into the ethical concerns that voters have. Nevertheless, I welcome your “congratulations” of Abigail Spanberger. It suggests a willingness to trust and support someone outside of your personal politics. Anything to help bring our divided country together can only be a good thing. Frank Grant Culpeper
