blooms beardtongue

This late spring, early summer perennial brightens the yard BY DEBBIE EISELE

B

eardtongue ‘Husker Red’ (Penstemon digitalis ‘Husker Red’) is a U.S. native perennial flower (meaning it comes back each year), and is ideal for yards of all sizes. In 1996, Penstemon digitalis ‘Husker Red’ was even named Plant of the Year by the Perennial Plant Association. This native flower provides gardeners with a beautiful, reddish-purple hue on its leaves. But there are other types of beardtongue available, so consult with an expert at a local garden center to provide you even more options. The stems of the blooms are rigid, stand up tall on their own accord (there is no need to stake), and ‘Husker Red’ even performs well in clay soil. Small tubular flowers offer a pinkish color; the blooms are showcased on stalks which rise up from the ground up to about two feet tall. Sometimes the flowers will appear whitish or a very, very pale pink color, which is spotlighted well against the darker leaves of the ‘Husker Red’. This perennial is an excellent choice for mass plantings on a hill and is stunning when it blooms in the late spring. The base of the plant’s leaves, or rosettes, are

penstemon?

BLOOM TIME: April through June

As the Missouri Botanical Garden notes: “Genus name comes from the Greek words penta meaning five and stemon meaning stamen in reference to each flower having five stamens (four are fertile and one is sterile).”

WHERE TO PLANT: Plant in full sun TYPE OF SOIL: Dry to medium soil conditions, but welldrained PLANT ZONE: Grows well in zones 3 to 8 (Fauquier County is zone 7) WILDLIFE: Ideal for birds, butterflies, and occasionally hummingbirds PESTS AND DISEASE: Deer tolerant; few disease or insect issues Source: missouribotanicalgarden.org

generally visible all four seasons long; sometimes in a harsh, cold winter the rosettes may die back, but this rarely happens in this area. Since this plant prefers well drained soil, hills are generally the best location, along with full sun exposure. If the beardtongue is planted in too wet an area,

root rot can occur – which means the roots will become waterlogged and die off. So it is so important to plant this perennial in the “right” place: in a dry or well-drained location. The benefits to this perennial include low maintenance, little to no disease issues, attracts wildlife,

and provides stunning blooms. Any of these characteristics will surely enhance your yard. Care is easy; simply prune back the stalks after blooms have faded, and enjoy the rosettes the rest of the year as a ground cover and enjoy the fact the plant will assist with soil erosion as well. ❖

The building of the first Catholic church in Warrenton

ow tucked away and somewhat lost on East Lee Street behind a large For Sale sign, is the original location of Saint John the Evangelist Church. Though no longer consecrated as sacred ground, it stands in dignity whispering its tales. On the day of the building was completed, July 16, 1861, the grace of the liturgy did not speak from the altar, the cries of the wounded and dying echoed instead from the ravages of the First Battle of Manassas. The Mass envisioned by Ann America Semmes Payne would not be given until October by Bishop McGill, (Third Bishop of Richmond,

1850-1872. His diocese consisted of all of Virginia.) with his consecration of the building as a Catholic Church. The beginning of this history commenced fourteen years prior in 1847. Ann America Semmes Payne, recently wedded, arrived in Warrenton as Rice W. Payne’s bride. Her family, the Semmes, were devout Catholics from Holy Trinity in Georgetown, which, she was distressed to find was the only Catholic Church near Warrenton, 60 miles away. A well-educated woman, she was quite aware that with the growing Catholic population in Virginia, especially of Irish Catholics, many other religious sects, most prominently Protestants, coupled with the expanding Know Nothing Party,

opposed the building of a Catholic Church in Warrenton. In this atmosphere, Ann felt keenly the isolation and loneliness of being one of the few Catholics in Fauquier County. Determined and steadfast, Ann immediately set about rectifying the grave situation by solidifying her resolve for the arduous task ahead; to raise the funds for their church. By July of 1860 the sum which she collected was $3,154.59 and a year later to the day, Saint John’s was completed. Yet by forces that amassed in Manassas, Bishop McGill’s blessing and consecration had to be postponed, the second day of the Battle of Manassas was in full fury. Ann immediately volunteered Saint John’s for the wounded that were arriving. At

“She was the chosen instrument of planting the seed of faith in this region, and the Church is a fit monument to her pious exertions.” ~ EXCERPT FROM THE OLD LEDGER WRITINGS MARKING THE SUBSCRIPTIONS OF DONATIONS.

In a letter written to her sister shortly after her arrival to Warrenton in November of 1847, Ann explains the situation quite well. last on October 20, 1861 the first Mass was sacrificed, and her son Gaston, the first baptism, later became a priest and served at Saint John’s. Perhaps in a cruel irony, Ann became the first funeral service held in January of 1862, a week after the birth of a daughter and her eighth child. On the front piece of the old ledger marking the subscriptions of donations, it is written; “The charitable undertaking of erecting a house of divine worship for Catholics of Warrenton, and vicinity, was commenced be America Semmes Payne, at a time when she was the only representative of the Holy Catholic Church in this community. To accomplish the work she struggled alone for fourteen years, and through unequalled energy and perseverance her labors were crowned with complete success. She was the chosen instrument of planting the seed of faith in this region, and the Church is a fit monument to her pious exertions.” By 1962 the Church was too small for the rapid growing Catholic population and a new Saint John’s was necessary. The new church was built on the land of the old Stuyvesant School and was completed in 1963. ❖

25 December, 1847 My Dear Sister, May I tell you the beginnings of the married life’s sacrament are euphoric. Our sojourn to New Orleans was quite delightful, I was able to visit with our cousins and introduce my new husband. They were of course curious and somewhat concerned that I married out of the Faith. I assured them that the coming children will be raised as fine Catholics and yes we were married in Holy Trinity. By wondrous chance, Bishop Whelan from the Richmond diocese was visiting for the month organizing the necessity of the routes for the circuit riding priests in the far flung reaches of Virginia’s Catholics. He promised to stop in Warrenton when the opportunity arose in the very near future. I found him a delightful man, quite worthy of his vocation. But now there are other topics I would care to discuss with you, the first is Warrenton, though it is the county seat, this town is many miles from my beloved Georgetown. Life here with its unpaved streets and nothing in the way of our Church for attendance, is the trial my faith has given me. I should accept this cheerfully and with joy, but the inability to attend Mass, I would not have thought possible, my rosary though, daily keeps my strength. At the time I was speaking with Bishop Whelan, I was unaware that there was no Catholic Church in Fauquier County. I have already posted a letter to him in this regard and by his authority ought to be able to augment this terrible situation. I miss the stillness of silence in her sanctuary. There is something so calming and yet at the same time a great will for us to defeat the sins we commit within our hearts, seemingly without purpose or intent. The minor trivialities that create an overmastering importance in the moment of anger, greed and arrogance, which we then later, in shame remember increases our absolute need for reconciliation without delay. One attempts foolish excuses for reasons and those quickly pale in comparison to our Lord’s sacrifice. We have more to reproach ourselves than the moment of circumstances. Some days are more difficult to contend with and struggle through than others. Fortunately, the others are far more numerous than the curmudgeon ones. Shall write again soon,

Slump Hacks for gaining motivation and preventing a training slump BY JARED NIETERS

M

aintaining your fitness is hard work and requires persistence, dedication, and motivation. Often the desire to get out and exercise comes easily, and endurance sports are popular because they are fun. But fatigue may creep in. The stressors of “real life” may pile on; the weather won’t cooperate, and motivation can wane. This may result in a training slump that can be hard to shake. A few hacks can help you to get back on track.

HAVE A PLAN Create a training schedule to eliminate the stress of deciding what you're going to do for a workout each day. A little effort ahead of time can keep you from getting derailed. Treat your work out simply as an item on your checklist to be completed. If you don’t want to create your own training schedule or don’t feel equipped to determine the best workout, there are plenty of easy plan options online. For more more detail or personalization, private endurance coaches can help keep you on track.

{ JUNE 2018 |

WARRENTON LIFESTYLE

CREATE ACCOUNTABILITY

Involve other people in your training as it provides external motivation. Train with a buddy; it increases the fun and puts on a little pressure for you to follow through. Group training may be a lot more rewarding as well. Whether you are in a fitness class, attend a regular group run organized by a local club, or a weekly group bike ride, the training hours go by quickly; sometimes you even feel like you didn't suffer at all. Another way to increase accountability is to enlist the service of an endurance coach who will create a plan and evaluate your performance. AVOID ANTICIPATION Don’t overthink your training program. Keep your preparation time simple and just get out the door. Everyone has a constant dialogue in their head and it's easy for that dialogue to turn negative. The key is to tune it out. Zone out with music or recite a mantra. When Nike popularized the phrase “Just Do It,” they keyed in on a valuable motivational tool: less thought, more action.

}

REST As training volume increases, so does fatigue. Consistent training stress can also elevate cortisol levels, which can weaken your immune system and make you grumpy. Be sure to incorporate adequate rest into any exercise plan so you can avoid the pitfalls of overtraining. And it's true what they say about absence making the heart grow fonder. A little time off can increase your drive to get back to your favorite activity. MAKE A PURCHASE A little bit of “retail therapy” can also go a long way when it comes to motivation. A new pair of shoes, a jersey, or a pair of shorts can be just the push you need to get out the door. It’s always fun to play with a new toy and it never hurts to feel good about how you look while you’re exercising. REDISCOVER YOUR “WHY”

Everyone who exercises was inspired by something, whether it was to lose weight, improve your fitness, or for the adventure. Something motivated you to take the first steps. Spend some time focusing on that inspiration and you may find the fire to exercise is rekindled. ❖

From one caregiver to another... Dealing with dementiarelated care takes knowledge and patience BY CAROL SIMPSON

O

ver 30 years ago, I started working with families and professional caregivers of people dealing with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, as the executive director of an Alzheimer’s Association chapter. Over the years, I’ve talked with thousands of people personally dealing with dementia. In 2010, my mother-in-law was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and I then tried to incorporate what I had learned throughout all these years into my own caregiving strategies. Here is some advice I gleaned and offer now to help others dealing with dementia in their personal lives.

LEARN AS MUCH AS YOU CAN ABOUT YOUR LOVED ONE’S DISEASE. There is

a wealth of information available today online, in the public library, and at local educational sessions. Misunderstanding about dementia still exists, so utilize reputable websites and don’t rely on anecdotes from neighbors or friends. WE CAN’T “CONVINCE” A PERSON WITH DEMENTIA OF ANYTHING, NOR CAN WE “TEACH” THEM. They typically don’t

“lie”. What we perceive as an untruth is usually what they believe to be true. GIVE ONE “COMMAND” AT A TIME.

Break your conversation into phrases. Rather than saying: “Put on your pants.” Simply say: “Sit on the bed.” Then provide guidance on the next step, such as saying “put the pants on.”

{ JUNE 2018 |

WARRENTON LIFESTYLE

The 10 Absolutes: CARING FOR SOMEONE WITH SIGNIFICANT MEMORY IMPAIRMENT CAN BE VERY DIFFICULT. In some cases

caring for a loved one with dementia is impossible for just one person. Force yourself to reach out for help and support (see the February 2018 article in Warrenton Lifestyle on caring for yourself.)

}

1. DON’T argue, agree. 2. DON’T reason, divert. 3. DON’T shame, distract. 4. DON’T lecture, reassure. 5. DON’T command; ask or model. 6. DON’T condescend, encourage or praise. 7. DON’T force, reinforce. 8. DON’T say “remember?”, instead, reminisce. 9. DON’T say, “I told you”, instead, repeat. 10. DON’T say, “You can’t”, instead, say, “Do what you can”. Excerpt from the book Alzheimer’s Disease: Help and Hope by Jo McDonnell Huey, copyright 2001, second edition, 2008; published by Alzheimer’s Institute, page 113.


WE NEED TO STEP INTO THEIR WORLD; THEY CAN’T COMPREHEND OURS ANY MORE. Even

with all my experience, this was a tough one for me to put into practice with my mother-in-law. I had known her for over 30 years when she became confused, forgetful, and belligerent. I experienced difficulty reconciling the differences. DON’T TAKE THINGS PERSONALLY. When your

mother accuses you angrily of stealing her purse, it’s useless to argue – it’s unlikely you’ll win. A good response might be, “I think I saw your purse in the kitchen, let’s go look for it.” You can also use a technique called redirection. Change the subject or the location; this takes advantage of your loved one’s short-term memory loss, and he or she may forget the accusation. ESTABLISH A ROUTINE.

People with dementia are more comfortable with a daily schedule. Whenever possible try to complete the same tasks at the same time each day. But, expect some difficulty when the agenda is disrupted, such as going to a doctor’s appointment. OFFER CHOICES. Instead

of asking your loved one: “What would you like for breakfast?” Ask, “Would you like eggs or waffles this morning?” As the disease progresses, present the person with food you select and say: “Time for breakfast.”

IF YOU LOSE YOUR PATIENCE, GIVE YOURSELF A BREAK.

Tomorrow is another day. Try to do better next time, but push guilt to the back burner – you’re doing the best you can and you can’t expect perfection. Give yourself a pat on the back for taking on this difficult journey, because not everyone would. CHOOSE YOUR BATTLES.

As the disease progresses, even the smallest task may become a challenge. Your relative may balk or even resist with force at dressing, grooming, bathing, eating, and other activities of daily living. One spouse told me, “There are no ‘pajama police’. If George refused to change into street clothes, I let him stay in his PJs until lunch and then tried again. As caregivers we need to change our expectations of what is acceptable.” Each individual with dementia is different, but these are general principles that work most of the time. When it comes to caring for someone with memory impairment knowledge and patience are power. ❖

Passing of the Conductor’s Baton Allegro continues the tradition of the Summer Concert series STORY BY AIMÉE O’GRADY | PHOTOS BY BETH MILLER-HERHOLTZ

A

llegro Community School of the Arts was quick to say yes when the Warrenton town manager approached co-founders, Sam and Lachelle Yoder, to continue the Bluemont music series for the town. The Yoders recognized the concerts not only align themselves with Allegro’s mission, but also help weave our community together more tightly. Studies indicate cultural capital can help sustain a community. Considered a more grass-roots effort to sustainability, culture capital engages artists and organizations in the development and revitalization efforts in communities. Allegro hopes to build upon Warrenton’s existing cultural community to solidify the sense of place for local residents. The newly branded Summer on the Green Concert Series presented by Allegro will showcase popular music weekly from July 7 through August 18. Residents and tourists are invited to historic Old Town along with blankets and chairs to enjoy an evening outdoors. For Marie Washington, a Fauquier County native and practicing attorney in Warrenton, the concerts are a cherished part of her childhood: “My parents always took me to the concerts. It was joyous occasion to be on the courthouse lawn with the street blocked off. It was fun to be outside with family and friends

with a picnic setting. With our busy lives, it is nice to be able to wind down and enjoy being with loved ones and enjoying the arts. I always get excited when I get the calendar for the summer, so I can make sure I book my schedule around the concerts I want to attend.” Rick Davis, the dean for George Mason University’s College of Visual and Performing Arts, said, “I like to think of the arts as a kind of metaphorical campfire or hearth – a

2018 Summer Concert Series Presents Fees: Adults are $5 each; Allegro Friends are $4 each; and Children under 12 are $2 each. With each ticket purchased, the event offers family time between 6:30 and 7:15 p.m. which will provide children activities.

place where people gather to find light, warmth, and companionship. Around the campfire you tell tall tales, share your deepest fears and also your greatest joys, and keep the scary darkness at bay. So when we say that the arts create community, we’re talking about fulfilling those basic human needs in a very positive and personal way,” Allegro hopes the concerts will re-engage residents who are increasingly disconnected. Lee Owsley the owner of Latitudes Fair Trade agrees the concerts help define our place: “[The concerts are] one of those community events that define what it is to live in a small

rural town that also appreciates the importance of the arts. It’s a place for people to gather to socialize around ‘the important things of life’. Our town is richer and more cohesive for events such as these.” The Silver Tones Swing Band will launch Summer on the Green on July 7 at the Warren Green on Culpeper Street in Warrenton. Sponsorships for the Summer on the Green are welcome. Allegro recognizes there is more to community sustainability than weekly concerts, but they are grateful to have the opportunity to provide this as one piece of the larger puzzle. ❖

Vella originally opened Baileywyck in Middleburg in 2006, but in December moved to The Plains. After months of renovations to the 4,600 square foot space, her shop is once again open for patrons to peruse an array of artwork, architectural elements, home decor items, equestrian items, garden elements, lighting, textiles, vintage-style toys, and more. Her favorite pieces include her vast collection of carousel horses. “I carry items from all corners of the world. Some pieces are from Goa, Paris, Spain, and Italy. And other pieces hale from England, Scotland, Wales and the U.S.,” she said. Her career has provided her a way to enjoy flexibility. “I always say there are no emergencies in antiques so this is an ideal business for me as I am a bi-coastal parent and a brand new grandma. I have the ability to see my kids when I want and travel overseas for work while I earn an income,” she shared. Due to her presence on Ebay and locally she has developed a large client base which helped in her make the decision to relocate from Middleburg. “The Plains is a dream come true. The community has been incredibly welcoming and helpful,” Vella shared. Surrounded by other shops and restaurants, Vella shared her store provides the needed space, but also draws even more customers. Vella divulged her favorite part of owning the business is the people she meets. “They are fun, interesting, sophisticated, well-travelled and likeminded,” she said. Customers share family stories, travel tips, and restaurant experiences with her. “In a small way I am a part of their lives,” she said. Vella shared she enjoys when people stop in and wander around the store to visit with her and her two golden retrievers, Emma and Don. She also hopes to provide local artists a place to display and sell work in the near future. “We are preparing the space now and my commision will be donated to the The Plains Community League,” she shared. “I am looking forward to being a part of The Plains in every way.” ❖ Baileywyck Antiques is located at 474 Loudoun Avenue in The Plains.

A day on the water Fishing holes create special, memorable moments with your father BY DEBBIE EISELE

I

am a Jersey girl from head to toe, and personally love being on the water...or on the banks... or anywhere near the sound of water. Fresh or salt water, it doesn’t matter. I share this sentiment with you because June is the month we celebrate our fathers and the special father figures in our lives. I am always astounded at the memories which surface this month for me. When I was young and my father still alive, we spent countless hours on the bay fishing together; waking sometimes at 4:30 a.m. to be on the water for the perfect conditions to enhance our overall catch that day. Although many times no fish came home with us we did bring home something – the warm memories of cutting the bait, fixing a broken fishing line, or casting a line out into the water in high expectation – a priceless father and daughter

bonding experience. Remember the old saying:: “The early bird gets the worm?” If so, take a day and enjoy special time with your dad to celebrate him. The outdoors is a great place to contemplate life, bond, and enjoy one on one time together. Since I am a bit biased, I suggest you indulge in an outing where rest and relaxation is plentiful, is near the water, and hopefully very successful with a bountiful catch. Maybe you will snag a few bream, bluegill, crappie, largemouth bass, bullhead, rainbow trout, smallmouth bass, walleye, warmouth, perch, or one of the many other types of fish present in the region. Since there are a myriad of local fishing spots, on both public and private land, consider your preference. Some spots are situated perfectly for wading, while others for fishing along the banks or in a canoe. The real fun is in the act of fishing itself. Even if you don’t catch anything, you will capture memories. Gather your gear and think about items for the excursion. I have included some items you may want to bring, information on some local destinations, and resources to discover excursions out of the immediate area. ❖

PERMISSION. If you are seeking a fishing hole on privately owned property, be sure you have the expressed (and sometimes written) permission from the landowner in case someone stops you along the way. FISHING GEAR.

Don’t forget your pole, tackle box, and/or bait. A pair of needlenose pliers also comes in handy for extracting stubborn hooks. A local bait shop like Rankins is a great place to go to for equipment advice. Don’t forget other basics like food, drinks, chairs and sun protection.

This is not an all encompassing list, it is only a few local places. There are plenty more, so visit www.hookandbullet. com/c/fishingwarrenton-va for detailed information on the location, type of fishing and type of land (public or private) you are seeking. • Airlie Dam • Cattail Branch • Fox Pond • Johnsons Dam • Jordan Branch • Lower Warrenton Lakes Dam • Mill Run • Silbersiepe Pond • Springhill Farm Pond • Warrenton Lake • Warrenton Reservoir (only open one day a year for the public to enjoy - sorry folks) For those of you interested in driving a little distance, check out the diverse locations for trout fishing. Details on the locations are available on Virignia’s website www.dgif.virginia.gov/ fishing/trout/. This site will also provide you information on the fishing season, limits, and it provides users with an interactive map to view.

Raising a

Reader

Preparing your child for a lifetime of success starts at the library

BY CAROLINE KESSLER

T

he benefits of reading have been long-touted among parents and educators; increased ability for vocabulary, analysis, self-expression and emotional maturity among them. Yet even amidst discussions of these later accomplishments, the true imperative of early literacy may be overlooked. The truth is, no time is too soon to introduce a child to reading, or to the library. Early exposure to literacy builds the foundation for subsequent achievement, but the advantages of a languagerich childhood are observable as quickly as that first educational milestone, kindergarten. Indeed, literacy skills displayed at this age often predict a child’s later reading success, an indication so vital that the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) considers early childhood literacy a matter of national health. For this reason, early literacy development should

28

{ JUNE 2018 |

not be seen as a mere advantage, but rather as a necessity for your child. Literacy promotion, AAP policy declares, is “an essential component of pediatric care.” The Fauquier County Public Library agrees. Raising a reader can be a source of fun for parents and children alike. Between simple at-home practices and the resources available at FCPL, you and your child will find plenty of support at any stage in their development. See our guide below for reading at all ages so you may embark on childhood literacy.

Infants to age 3

Babyhood is the time for parents to craft a literaturepositive atmosphere at home. Make reading a regular and instinctive activity to model the behaviors you want to see in your child. Read aloud and read anything: baby books, novels, emails, recipes, shopping lists. The exposure to language is what’s important. Remember to speak directly to your child. This is the prime age of board books and fabric readers, so let your baby handle the books for a further sensory response and engage them in the act of reading itself.

Picture books for ages 2 to 8

Picture books introduce longer stories, favorite characters, and new ideas through language and illustration. These books are intended to be read to, not by, your child, so take the opportunity to make this a cherished activity for the both of you. Encourage off-page conversations about what

they see and hear. Children will start to develop their own tastes in books, so foster their interests while promoting a diversity of subjects and authors. Talk to a children’s librarian or attend a story time for more ideas is to talk to a children’s librarian or attend a story time at your library. Or, if your schedule conflicts, take a “Story Time to Go” pack home with you. Each of these packs provides a specific theme, an activity sheet and an assortment of books. Look on the label for Toddler and Preschool selections. Also a “Box of Books,” a unique library resource, contains a collection of 50 picture books and is perfect for travelling. Both “Story Time to Go” and “Box of Books” are available at all three library locations.

Early readers for ages 4 to 7

The first books children read on their own will have large print, easy vocabulary and simple plots. These “Easy Readers” are identified by a numbered reading level on their cover. These books should be made available when your child expresses an interest in independent reading, but remember there is no correct age for this to happen. Meanwhile, continue to read aloud and not only at bedtime. Continue with picture books, but also introduce longer stories, even simple chapter books. At this point, a child’s comprehension far outpaces their own reading ability. Even when your child begins reading independently, retain some time together. Hearing stories read aloud is beneficial even for older children. Stimulate discussions about the books they are reading and be sure to keep reading yourself; kids will want to imitate your behavior.

Chapter books for ages 6 to 10

When your child is no longer engaged by Easy Readers, introduce chapter books. Look for books with pictures or identify a series. Graphic novels and nonfiction provide alternatives for reluctant readers and despite their visual-heavy formats, should be considered on equal literary standing with regular fiction. Consult a librarian for recommended titles, or view the library’s book lists, which are categorized by age and interest. Complimentary grade-school programs are available and include PAWS to Read, where kids read aloud to certified therapy dogs, and STEAM, an after-school club promoting Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math.

Middle Grade for ages 8 –to 12; Young Adult for ages 12+

The best of these genres are imaginative, diverse and relatable to typical adolescent experiences. Reoccurring themes include growing up and forming one’s identity, and the craftsmanship at work in these stories make them favorites among adults as well. Especially in Young Adult (YA), expect the books to handle difficult subjects, but know the finest of them will address these topics with nuance. Ask a youth services librarian for age-appropriate recommendations and consider picking one up for yourself.

“early literacy development should not be seen as a mere advantage, but rather as a necessity for your child.” Library Resources

Make the library your first stop this summer. Registration for the annual summer reading program opens June 1 (in person and online at fauquierlibrary. org). Children of all ages, including teens, can join and will delight in the wide range of programs, games and prizes offered. The library also offers year-round programs to foster young literary spirits. There is no minimum age to sign children up for a library card, and this event can be turned into an important milestone in their reading life. For parents needing inspiration, the library publishes regular blog posts on children’s literature: “Kiddosphere” for babies, preschoolers and grade school students, and “Reading Riot” for middle school and young adult readers. To learn more about all available programs and resources, visit fauquierlibrary. org or stop by your local library. A complete list of summer reading program activities and programs is available at your local library or at Fauquierlibrary.org. ❖ ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Caroline Kessler was a 2017 PATH intern, assigned to the Fauquier County Public Library

Story Times Weekly stories for children up to age five. Baby Steps: up to 15 months Half Pints: 13 to 24 months 2’s & 3’s: ages 2 – 3 Preschooler: ages 3 – 5 Sensory Story Time: Preschool children with special needs

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Eager to help raise readers, FCPL offers “1,000 Books before Kindergarten.” Under this new year-round program, parent and child track books read on a special log. Reading milestones are celebrated at the library with stickers and other small prizes. In as little as 15 minutes a day, parents can prepare their youngsters for their first day of school. The program is open to all children who have not yet entered kindergarten, and participants can begin as early as their first day home from the hospital. Reading should be fun, not a chore, so focus on the stories themselves rather than the number of titles. When a child is raised to love reading, the books will pile up on their own.

What is the number one mistake most people make when they have pain? They ignore it and think the pain will just go away. Some individuals may take medications if pain persists; this masks the pain and doesn’t truly address the reason for it.

physical therapy

A natural treatment for pain management BY KAREN LONGE

Karen Longe MPT is the founder of KEL Physical Therapy in Warrenton VA. She enjoys helping people get back to activities that they love to do NATURALLY using her manual therapy skills, dry needling, powerful education and instruction in corrective exercises. She is passionate about educating and provides monthly workshops open to all. For more information on her services contact her via phone at 540422-0020, email ptwithkel@gmail.com, or visit KEL-PT.com.

N

ow that it is spring and summer is around the corner, we think about gardening, riding, playing tennis, and getting more active. But, sometimes a body is not quite ready for this type of activity; pain may limit you from participation. The sooner your pain is addressed, the faster you may be able to diminish or relieve your pain entirely. Shoulder, back, neck, and foot pain are common complaints and limit individuals when doing “simple” things. A shoulder may hurt as you reach to put something away on a shelf, put on or tuck in a shirt, or reach into the back seat of the car. Some people experience back pain when they sit or stand. Others may experience pain in the neck while at work looking at a computer, or if the head is turned while backing up a car. Still some individuals experience foot pain in the morning when they first wake up, traversing down the stairs, or when they walk or jog.

How can you rid yourself of pain and enjoy the activities you wish to without medications, injections or surgery? Physical therapy. A physical therapist will first perform a very thorough evaluation to determine the root cause of your pain. The evaluation consists of a series of questions about what activities or positions make your pain better, and what activities worsen your pain. Typically, a physical therapist will want to know if pain awakens you at night, the level of pain you experience in the morning and at the end of the day, as well as the type of pain it is – sharp or dull.Once these types of questions are answered, the physical therapist will also evaluate and assess your strength, flexibility, and balance. Some additional testing may be

completed to determine the specific cause of your pain. Once a therapist is assured your situation is a musculoskeletal problem, they will be able to develop a plan to reduce or rid you of the pain by implementing a treatment plan. Treatment may include joint and soft tissue mobilization, instruction in corrective exercises, and education in proper body mechanics; other options may include dry needling, taping, or other modalities specific to your unique needs.

What is the goal of physical therapy? The goals of treatment are to first get rid of your pain, then to get you pain free through your full range of motion. When you are pain free through all positions, a therapist can then strengthen you through these movements. Once you have strength through full range motion, a physical therapist can commence training in a specific sport, or activity movement pattern to achieve your mobility and performance goals. For example, if your goal is to play tennis your needs are very different from someone who wants to ride in the hunt. A soccer player has different movement needs then a golfer, and a gardener has different needs then an artist. With an expert treatment plan, you may soon be able to participate in the activities you enjoy. ❖

Behind the Scenes

ady Park, WARF, Academy Hill Park, Eva Walker Park, Sam Tarr Park, and the Warrenton Dog Park all have something in common – a dedicated team from the Town’s Parks and Recreation Department who maintain the locations for the entire community to enjoy. According to Margaret Rice, director, for Parks and Recreation, said, “There is a lot of talk on how to maintain parks the best way – in cost-conscious manner.” Rice shared there is a team of two people who perform most all of the work at the Town parks. The team consists of Jeffrey Bruck and Mason Ferraiuolo,

and they are supervised by Seth McMurray and Margaret Rice. Parks and Rec, once managed by the County, is now responsible for maintaining these local places of enjoyment. The Greenway, however is managed by Fauquier County personnel in accordance with the Master Trails Plan. And, the fields at the WARF fall under the purview of the Warrenton Fields Association, who lease the fields from the Town and manages the scheduling of the activities associated with the land. This arrangement allows Jeffery and Mason to focus on all the parks in the Town.

Trash pick-up, rentals, and shelter repairs are some of the duties that fall upon Jeffery and Mason. Additionally, they also help at the WARF where they set-up for swim meets, help customers, rewire timing systems if necessary, and even help re-key the facility when needed. Jeffrey, a Warrenton resident for over 15 years, said, “The most important thing for the public to know is that safety comes first. That is why each day we walk through the parks and inspect the play structures, clean the bathrooms and handle trash removal.” He also noted Seth provides them assigned tasks on a daily basis. “Things are different everyday,” shared Jeffrey. “I love being outside and people always compliment us while we are there. It is great feedback.” Mason, previously a lifeguard at the WARF, recently moved into this role. “I like that I am constantly doing something, there is no sitting around,” he shared. “I have always liked public service jobs; protecting the public as a lifeguard was nice, but this is a new opportunity for me.” Both men explained they enjoy the building and repair aspect of their jobs – it’s their favorite task. In addition to repair work they perform on the structures and bridges at the parks, the men also work with machinery to cut down limbs, remove trees, and grind stumps. The team does obtain assistance at times. “Public Works is a great partner in maintaining and helping with larger projects,” said Rice. “Jonn Ward and his crew are always great about helping when we need assistance. The Department of Public Works is

generally involved in large tree removal projects and others where extra ‘hands’ provide assistance.” Additionally, lawn care services are provided by a hired company, which enables the employees to focus on the parks. Rice said, “The Town government is really one big team; they support one another via the various departments – Community Development, Finance, Police, Fire, Economic Development, and Public Works all collaborate as needed.” Occasionally, Jeffrey and Mason will have to clean the parks after major storms, such as the one in March. The wind storm felled six to seven trees at Rady Park alone. Additionally, the men clean the grounds after heavy rains and flooding. Rady Park is one of the areas more prone to flooding and requires time and effort from the staff to keep the area clean and safe. When parks are heavily used (mainly during spring and summer), these employees work seven days per week. “They have to clean and keep the parks nice for all the people using the parks,” said Rice. The men begin their day around 7:00 a.m. and end at 3:30 p.m., but at times they may begin as early as 4:30 a.m. and end late in the evening for events such as Movies in the Parks. According to Margaret the measure of success is in the events and services themselves: “If something goes wrong and we are able to respond quickly without interrupting service to anyone in attendance, then that is a success.” Rice shared the staff members pride themselves in making sure everything works seamlessly for the participants in the events, even if the staff has to deal with issues

I love being outside and people always compliment us while we are there. It is great feedback.”

unbeknownst to the public. Jeffrey shared that his favorite events in Town are the Warrenton Town Limits and the fishing day conducted at the reservoir (near the Ivy Hill subdivision – held in May each year). During these events, the men work from morning until night to ensure a safe, clean environment for all participants. The next time you enjoy the use of Rady, Eva Walker, Sam Tarr, or Academy Hill Park – or take Fido for a visit at the dog park – take note of the safe conditions at each location. If you happen to see Jeffery and Mason working, stop by and say hello. ❖

Person-Centered Care is the Priority

Below: During a recent emergency preparedness drill in the Emergency Department, a lab technician calms a young “patient” who was nervous about having his blood taken for testing.

Fauquier Hospital receives Gold Certification from Planetree Fauquier Hospital receives Gold Certification International from Planetree International BY ROBIN EARL

F

auquier Hospital has been awarded Gold Certification for Excellence in PersonCentered Care by Planetree International. The certification represents the highest level of person-centered care, which prioritizes the active participation of patients and their families throughout the healthcare process with an emphasis on partnership, compassion, transparency, inclusion and quality. Fauquier Hospital was first awarded designation as a Planetree hospital in 2007, and is one of only 77 healthcare organizations worldwide to receive the Gold Certification. Chad Melton, chief executive officer, said, “Planetree has been an important part of our culture for more than a decade. As the healthcare landscape has changed, Planetree’s emphasis and standards have evolved to include empirical data on patient satisfaction and quality of care measures. This hard-won certification is a testament to our staff’s

continued commitment to person-centered care.” “The Planetree certification is the only award that recognizes excellence in person-centeredness across the continuum of care,” said Susan Frampton, president of Planetree International, a not-for-profit organization that has been at the forefront of the movement to transform healthcare – from the perspective of patients – for nearly 40 years. “This gold certification signals to its patients and community that Fauquier Hospital is an organization where staff partner with patients and families, and where patient and family

comfort, dignity, empowerment and well-being are prioritized as key elements of providing top-quality clinical care.” The criteria that Fauquier Hospital satisfied to achieve Planetree Gold certification address components of a person-centered healthcare experience, including the quality of patientprovider interactions, access to information, family involvement and the physical environment of care. The criteria also focus on how the organization supports staff, opportunities for staff, patients, and families to have a voice in the way care is delivered, and the ways that

Fauquier Hospital is reaching beyond its walls to care for its community. The certification process – which included a site visit by representatives from Planetree, discussion with recent Fauquier Hospital patients, families, and current staff – validated that specific personcentered policies are in place. This includes non-restrictive visiting hours and a shared medical record policy, that staff members at all levels are involved in the implementation of person-centered care, and that the organization’s physical environment supports patient and family engagement in their care. ❖

CEMETERY

O

n the morning of April 13, 2017 disaster struck; nearly one hundred headstones were discovered knocked over and seriously damaged in the Warrenton Cemetery. The shock of this crime quickly shifted into a call for action. Concerned citizens came together and raised nearly 20,000 dollars for the restoration of the damaged tombstones. The vandalized headstones were documented, assessed, and a monument restorationist was contacted. Out of these efforts, under the recommendation of the Town Manager, The Friends of the Warrenton Cemetery foundation was officially established on July 12, 2017. One year later, The Friends of the Warrenton Cemetery board has a lot to show for their efforts, but it’s just the beginning. In October 2017, Robert Mosko of the Pennsylvania-based Mosko Monument Services spent two days meticulously repairing 10 of the most severely damaged headstones. Over 30 other headstones still require repairs; caused by the March wind storm, the natural aging process, as well last year’s vandalism, and older damage. Warrenton Cemetery board members, Wendy Wheatcraft and Tony Padden presented the nonprofit’s first lecture in November. Over 30 guests attended “The Symbolism & Culture of the American Graveyard” lecture at the Visitor Center to learn not only about the iconography in graveyards across America, but also about safe cleaning practices for tombstones. Wheatcraft explained the Warrenton Cemetery has a large number of Celtic cross tombstones, as well as other common designs indicating organizations that the deceased belonged to in life (Odd Fellows, Freemasons, etc),

and icons symbolizing grief, heaven, and religious affiliation. Minute books from the 18th century are official notes from decisions made by the local government. These notes detailed that the cemetery was laid out in 1760, near the site of the original courthouse – where the cemetery is today. The earliest known headstone in the cemetery dates to 1811, but Robert Rose was interred elsewhere upon his death and his tombstone moved to Warrenton sometime after that; which leaves roughly 50 years of unknown burials. It was not uncommon for residents to be buried in family cemeteries in rural areas like Warrenton. Unlike other contemporary towns, such as Culpeper, most of the early churches in Warrenton were outside the town limits, and those within the town did not have cemeteries. In early February 2018, Maggie Lovitt, fellow board member Karen Lovitt, Tristan Shields (owner of Shields Brothers Media), and Stephanie Monasky surveyed the historical portion of the cemetery with a drone. Over the

past five years, drone technology has become an integral part of cemetery research, allowing a birds-eye view of the grounds. Often times, revealing unmarked graves which are hard to identify from the ground. The Moser Funeral Home generously allowed research of historic records to determine which information was available from early funerals in Warrenton. While the information on cultural aspects of early funerals was fascinating, the records were unable to identify the unknown graves throughout the cemetery. The Town of Warrenton has erected a new fence along the southwestern border of the cemetery; fencing in areas which were previously open. The March storm brought down numerous trees in the Warrenton Cemetery, including a large tree branch that fell precisely between the recently restored iconic Nelson family tombstones. Luckily, only one tombstone sustained minor damage. The next project for the Friends will require many volunteers to assist

in documenting each tombstone: its material, condition, inscription, location, and other pertinent details. The foundation plans to establish a complete inventory of those interred in the Warrenton Cemetery, which will be available to the public for genealogy, visitation, and general history. In the wake of the vandalism, news of the incident spread across websites like Ancestry and FamilyTree, and descendants across the country wanted reports on their ancestors buried in the Warrenton Cemetery. This task proved difficult, as some tombstones were previously damaged or worn by weather, or were not located in family plots. It became apparent an inventory was necessary, to document the lives of those that made Warrenton what it is today. Moving forward, the Friends of the Warrenton Cemetery will host cemetery tours, lectures, and community based events.

Living the Dream Tara Jelenic captures unique images through her camera lens

BY DEBBIE EISELE

T

ara Jelenic is an artist and a horse enthusiast who’s artistic endeavours began when she was just five years old. “I had my first piece of artwork submitted and pinned in an art show at the Lowe Art Museum at University of Miami when I was six years old,” Jelenic shared. “My mom signed me up for drawing lessons at an early age and I continued drawing and painting throughout high school.” Over the years, Jelenic’s love for art did not abate. She noted, “My parents were extremely supportive when I made the decision to attend the University of Florida Fine Arts school and pursue my talents.” Creativity, however, runs in her family genes; her mother is a painter and her father draws. “My parents must have sensed I had a knack for art and allowed me to thrive by enrolling me in various art classes in my early years,” Jelenic said. “My love for art really stemmed from those early experiences.”

While enrolled at the University, Jelenic discovered photography. “In the 90’s we shot with film cameras which was a different experience. I brought my camera everywhere, including my travels to Europe. Intrigued by texture and contrast of certain architectural features, I would incorporate those into my photographs,” she said. “I also loved the aspect of sports photography and spent a lot of time photographing skateboarders. This is where my passion for photography began.” During her childhood, her home was across the street from a horse farm. She was always fascinated by animals. In the past decade Jelenic relocated to Virginia and was once again surrounded by horses. Now she finds photographing them a challenge; one she enjoys. She upgraded to a digital camera and began photographing anything related to the equines: from dressage shows to fox hunting. “I knew then this is what

My approach is an organic and thoughtful one and I enjoy seeing clients understand and appreciate the special moments I capture with the camera.

subject matter is, of course, horses. She admitted one of her biggest accomplishments in her career has been the production and sales of her fine art images. “I am elated at the thought of someone enjoying the work I created,” she said. “My approach is an organic and thoughtful one and I enjoy seeing clients understand and appreciate the special moments I capture with the camera.” Jelenic’s photography is a testament to her artistic vision; the detail, composition and style. “I aim to capture an unexpected mood and/or perspective. Although the image is a two dimensional one, my end goal is to convey a three dimensional feel in each piece. In my field work, I strive to capture moments of accomplishment and bliss,” she shared. Customer service is also important to Jelenic. She dedicates time discussing various pieces with her patrons. “I sell my fine art to both private and business clients,” Jelenic noted. “Most of my work is limited edition and is available in various sizes to accommodate each client’s needs.” Also notable is the type of printed

I was supposed to do professionally,” Jelenic said with a smile. “I am very fortunate to have many different types of equestrian events so close to home and I am rarely without my camera.” Through the years she has developed her own unique style and composition for a variety of subject matter. She also developed a fondness for photographing architecture for both design professionals and realtors, as she has a second degree in interior design and worked in the field for several years. Her favorite

medium Jelenic utilizes for her pieces. “The unique medium conveys the contemporary feel of my images. The images are printed directly on a metal backing which allows the image to remain unframed, retaining the integrity of the piece to reflect the modern intention of my work.” For those who wish a traditional frame, Jelenic also offers framing services. Jelenic’s work is available for purchase through a variety of sources. One is through her website or by contacting her directly. Individuals may also view and purchase her exclusive fine art pieces at Daniel J Moore Design, located at 8393 West Main Street in Marshall, Virginia. Jelenic’s goal is to hold an art show in the near future to showcase her work in a gallery setting. In the meantime, Jelenic said that she’s “living her dream through through the lens.” For more information on her equine, special event offerings, limited edition fine art photography, portrait photography, and real estate photography visit www. tarajelenicphotography.com, or email info@tarajelenicphotography.com ❖

Keep Calm KNOW HOW TO REACT IN THE FACE OF MARKET VOLATILITY

BY NATHAN GILBERT

I

t’s been a while since we as investors have faced sharp downward movements in the stock markets. But that’s exactly what we experienced during the first quarter of 2018. And most experts agree the volatility will continue for much of this year. Note volatility does not mean “down all the time,” as many investors seem to think. It means swings in both directions, so it becomes even more important that investors remain calm and don’t make any rash, short-term moves in an attempt to avoid losses. Declines are certainly nothing new, but they seem especially surprising on the heels of an unusually calm 2017. From a recent article by Capital Group: “Even after sharp declines, market turnarounds can happen quicker than one might think. Intrayear declines in the S&P 500 have averaged 14 percent since 1976, but index returns were positive in 31 of

those 41 annual periods.” In other words, most years end with positive gains despite relatively large, shortterm declines during the year. In fact, many investors hurt themselves when they attempt to time the markets. I have often heard clients say something such as: “I will get out of the market now, and then get back in when things look better.” That’s the very definition of market timing, and this type of activity should be avoided. “When things look better” often means the market has already rebounded, and that recovery growth has been missed. If an investor sells (or “gets out”) when the markets are at a low point, and then re-invests (or “gets back in”) when the markets reach a higher level, he or she has lost the opportunity to experience that increase from the low point. And, the market may even go down again after the initial recovery, creating a

difficult cycle with little or no growth for the reactionary investor. There are many good examples of why it’s best to stay the course and focus on the long-term results, but one excellent example is from JP Morgan utilizing data from Bloomberg. Over the past 20 years, the US stock market (as measured by the S&P 500 Index) had an annual average return of about 7.2 percent. If an investor were spooked by shortterm declines and got out of the market for just the 10 best performing days of that 20-year period, he or she would have had only a 3.53 percent average annual return. If the 20 best performing days were missed, the average annual return drops to just 1.15 percent. The reality is that no one can accurately predict exactly when the “best” days and the “worst” days will occur. So, it’s best to avoid what essentially becomes a guessing game and stick to your agenda. In yet another example, as mentioned above, since 1998, the S&P 500 has averaged about 7.2 percent per year, but the average investor has only averaged 2.6 percent per year over the same period. The “average investor” number is based on analysis by Dalbar, which uses the net aggregate mutual fund sales, redemptions and exchanges each month as a measure of investor behavior. Basically, investors can’t stay out of their own way, and the knee-jerk reactions negatively impact returns. Human nature is a tough thing to overcome in any aspect of life. If we see the value of our money go down in a particular investment, it’s a natural reaction to want to get our money out of that investment as soon as possible. A prudent saver resists that urge and should be rewarded in the long run. It’s best to create a plan that fits your particular situation. Then, keep calm and stick to that plan, even though there will be times when your patience will be tested! ❖

Carver tends to his hives at the Fauquier Education Farm on Meetze Road.


Bee in the know Apiarists work to pollinate regional crops and flowers STORY BY AIMÉE O’GRADY PHOTOS BY KARA THORPE

T

he Nature Conservancy recognizes bees as the greatest pollinating machine in agriculture. Honey bees are efficient pollinators because they practice flower fidelity despite being attracted to such a large variety of flowers. Flower fidelity means bees visit the same species of flower when gathering and transfer pollen to the same species. Without pollination plants would not reproduce and those that bear produce would be insufficiently fertilized. Bees are critically important to agriculture.

Below and opposite page: Carver works slowly and carefully to minimize disturbance to the colonies. Beekeepers check hives regularly to inspect their overall health. A smoker, seen below, is used to calm and distract the bees.

About 20 years ago, Todd Carver found himself a newlywed living in Virginia. With maple trees less prolific in this region, he decided to begin an apiary. Carver brought his childhood experience with him when starting his apiary. He grew up watching his grandfather tap Maple trees for syrup and tend beehives on a hobby farm in upstate New York, not far from Lake Erie. Carver has utilized his knowledge to assist the bee population and their important functions in our crop production. Now in his fourth season as a beekeeper Todd has nine hives; seven kept at his home and two he maintains at the Fauquier Education Farm on Meetze Road in Warrenton. “The idea to put hives at the farm came from my wife, Calla, who volunteers there,” he says. “With the yields of the farm, the location is ideal.” The Fauquier Education Farm is a nonprofit organization which provides agricultural education to interested citizens. The produce grown and harvested at the farm is donated to local food banks, enhancing the health and

nutrition of the areas food insecure residents. Now in his second season with hives at the farm, Carver says it is too early to determine if production is better with the bees’ pollination. Carver expects the Education Farm bees will pollinate the crops grown there and improve the overall yield of the farm, even if the results are challenging to quantify. With nine hives to maintain, Carver needs access to a lot of equipment to maintain his colonies. Each hive requires at a minimum hive bodies, frames for each body, supers (where the honey is collected), an inner cover, an outer cover, and a base to rest on. Additional items include front feeders or top feeders, supplements, queen excluders, frame spacers, and so much more. Personal beekeeping equipment includes a bee suit or jacket, a smoker, a variety of tools, a brush, as well as myriad of other items. Extra equipment is kept on hand in the event a hive swarms and a new hive is started. For hobbyist beekeepers who collect honey, extraction equipment is added to the growing list of items needed for beekeeping.

“The monetary value of honey bees alone as commercial pollinators in the United States is estimated at about $15 billion annually with them doing almost 80% of all crop pollination.” – THE NATURE CONSER VANCY

Below: The picturesque Fauquier Education Farm is an ideal location for Carver’s hives. The presence of the hives is mutually beneficial for both bees and farm.

Thankfully, beekeepers like Carver may visit the Virginia Bee Supply in Remington to purchase all of their supplies. Jerry Headley opened Virginia Bee Supply in Remington about five years ago because he was tired of paying shipping costs: “It was a three hour drive to buy equipment, which required a day off from work,” he says. Today, the shop carries everything a beginner or seasoned beekeeper could need. Headley was taught how to be a beekeeper when he was 10 years old by his grandfather who maintained between 25 to 50 hives at any given time and sold his honey in a grocery store he managed. Headley has witnessed the contributions his hives have had on the environment firsthand. He moved to his home in Bealeton from Spotsylvania 15 years ago. “When we moved here, we had a large tangle of trees that were about 40 to 50 feet high. I was going to cut them down,” he recalls. The trees bloomed annually, but never bore any fruit. “Instead of cutting them down, I put some hives near them. The next spring when the tree bloomed, the bees pollinated the flowers and we learned it was a persimmon tree. The

weight of the fruit broke a lot of the branches, naturally trimming the tree, ”Today, Headley says the trees are healthy, fruit bearing, and attractive. “Every beekeeper is making an impact on their small part of the environment,” he says. “Apple orchards in particular keep a few hives per acre to ensure pollination and maximize production from the orchard,” he says as another example of the impact of apiaries. When he began the shop, he didn’t plan on it taking over his life. “I had a fulltime job,” he laughs. “I did this because I wanted to help people.” Business has grown so much Headley now works full time in the shop, as does his wife and son-in-law. “We are a familyrun business aimed at helping people who want to be beekeepers,” he states simply. This year, Headley provided beekeepers with 1,600 colonies to start hives. With upwards of 10,000-20,000 bees in each colony that equates to as many as 32,000,000 honey bees working to pollinate our region’s rich landscape; a little food for thought when perusing the variety of fruits, vegetables and flowers available at our regional farmers markets this season’s regional farmers markets. ❖

Tickborne diseases: Every man for himself Opinions differ in medical community over tick bites, treatment BY JOHN MCCASLIN

S

uffice to say, the medical community has a tremendous amount to learn when it comes to ticks, tick bites and tick-borne diseases. And they would be the first to admit it. Consider two of the area’s top tick experts don’t completely see eye-to-eye when it comes to the tiny bloodsuckers and how they harm humans. Take Dr. Nevena Zubcevik, co-director of Harvard Medical School’s Dean Center for Tick Borne Illness. For several years she’s been sounding the alarm that veteran doctors — and even worse yet, graduating medical students — aren’t nearly up to speed on a tick-borne disease epidemic growing worse by the day. For instance, many doctors today will inform patients a tick has to sink its razor sharp jaws into human flesh for 24 to 48 hours before the little bugger spits its debilitating Lyme bacteria or else some other disease-causing crud into an unsuspecting person’s bloodstream. Not true, at least in the opinion of Dr. Zubcevik. Dr. Zubcevik says only after 10 to 15 minutes of the tick embeds itself into a victim it can inject who knows how many of the 10 most common strains of

56

{ JUNE 2018 |

tick-related viruses. Then there’s the much-hyped bull’s-eye rash one strains their eyes to see in the days and weeks after prying a tick from their waistband, shoulder, armpit or anywhere else that blood flows — and when one isn’t found the person assumes they are out of the woods, right? Wrong. In fact, Dr. Zubcevik told an audience of medical professionals that tick-bite victims who discover a bull’s eye rash should consider themselves lucky, because she insists they appear only about 20 percent of the time. And how about the medically trendy “two-day” course of doxycycline to cure the less severe tick bite? If it was the Harvard doctor’s patient she’d prescribe up to 200 milligrams of doxycycline twice a day for 20 full days, regardless of how short a duration the tick fed on its host. Reached by me to expand further on what is arguably unorthodox guidance on ticks, Dr. Zubcevik referred us to her fellow tick expert in the mid-Atlantic: Dr. John Aucott, director of the Johns Hopkins Lyme Disease Clinical Research Center in Maryland. With more than 15 years of research experience on the crippling effects of Lyme, Dr. Aucott has published numerous studies on the characteristics of early Lyme disease,

even the differences seen in males and females, with an emphasis on prospects for prevention, diagnosis and treatment. Without question, Drs. Zubcevik and Aucott are in agreement on most tick matters, but they also have their differences when it comes to what the ordinary person should know when it comes to tick bites and what often follows in their wake. Dr. Aucott opiniones that if a tick is discovered “very early” in the gorging process, he would recommend “not taking a full course” of precautionary antibiotics, particularly in areas such as ours where tick bites are a regular occurrence. “If you did that you’d be on antibiotics all spring, summer and fall,” the doctor points out. Rather, says Dr. Aucott, if the tick is removed within “48 hours” then a “single dose of prophylactic antibiotics” can often arrest development of Lyme disease, which remains difficult to diagnose. “The baseline to remember is not all tick bites result in tick-borne diseases,” Dr. Aucott says. “Two to 5 percent [of ticks] at most transmit disease.” As for a telltale rash? “I believe 70 to 80 percent get the rash,” answers the doctor, although it doesn’t always appear in the

shape of a bulls-eye. Dr. Aucott, like others in the medical field, stresses tick bite prevention is key. People must take protective measures when outdoors. He says, “Just like when we get into a car and automatically put on a seatbelt to prevent injury. We have to do the same thing with ticks.” He rattles off the usual safety precautions, like powerful bug sprays, tucking pants into socks and shirts into pants, basically “staying out of the bushes.” And then performing thorough tick checks, which for families in this region is a nightly ritual like brushing teeth. And if no rash appears to warn of Lyme, sooner or later one of the other numerous signs of tick-borne diseases will likely appear, including but not limited to headaches, body aches, fever, chills, irregular heartbeat, malaise, shortness of breath, and brain fog. Amazingly, Dr. Aucott tells us that certain people with “healthy immune systems” can actually get Lyme and never know they even have it until the disease eventually disappears from their bodies. In other words, that headache might not have been from pollen after all. Meanwhile, diagnosing tick-borne diseases remains a serious issue. Many people suffering from Lyme (bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi) or other tick-borne diseases don’t initially test positive in blood samples. And if left untreated those diseases can all spell serious medical consequences, including musculoskeletal, nervous system and heart problems. If getting tested, wait until any early stage of infection has passed. With Lyme there is also the ELISA assay test, which looks for the disease’s antibodies, and then there’s the Western Blot assay, which is considered the most reliable test available today. There is hope on the horizon. Dr. Aucott says the medical field continues its work on an effective Lyme disease vaccine for humans, albeit the process is taking “years

Longhorned or East Asian Tick

to accomplish.” How many of the other tick-borne diseases, besides Lyme, such a vaccine might prevent remains to be seen. Take the dreaded TBRDs (Tick Borne Rickettsial Diseases), which is difficult to diagnose and are increasing in number, put more people in the hospital, and are deadlier than Lyme. TBRD symptoms sometimes don’t develop until “years” after the tick bite. And then there’s two types of POW, or Powassan virus, which are also difficult to diagnose, more debilitating and deadlier than Lyme. Virginia has now recorded its first case of POW. No antiviral drug exists for the virus, which can be transmitted from the bites of six known species of ticks. Time interval for POW transmission to humans: less than 12 hours. Fortunately, the majority of POW cases are in northern states, from New England into the upper Midwest, while Lyme disease rules here in this county. One more thing: if you have an opossum in your yard, keep it alive and hope for offspring. The National Wildlife Federation states that with the huge rise in deer tick populations and spread of Lyme “opossums act like little vacuum cleaners . . . with a single opossum hoovering up and killing as many as 4,000 ticks per week.” Bottom line: Dr. Aucott says if you notice any fatigue, soreness or fever during these warmer months, be suspicious first of Lyme. “We like to say there’s no summer flu,” is how the doctor puts it. ❖

“if you have an opossum in your yard, keep it alive and hope for offspring... opossums act like little vacuum cleaners... with a single opossum hoovering up and killing as many as 4,000 ticks per week.”

Recent news has discussed the identification of a new tick found in Hunterdon County, New Jersey. This particular county was the first location to find the longhorned or East Asian tick on livestock. Since then, the tick has been spotted in multiple N.J. counties, and now in Albemarle County here in Virginia. According to the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS): “On May 14, the National Veterinary Services Laboratory in Ames, Iowa confirmed the finding of the Haemaphysalis longicornis tick (otherwise known as the East Asian or Longhorned tick) in Virginia. The tick appeared on an orphaned calf on a beef farm in Albemarle County.” VDACS noted that Virginia state veterinary officials are collaborating with the U.S. Department of Agriculture and other federal entities “to determine the extent and significance of this Virginia finding.” Livestock owners and those who spend time outdoors need to be on the lookout for these critters. “This pest is so new that there is a lot we don't know yet, but we're learning every day,” said Elaine Lidholm from VDACS. “Livestock producers and owners should notify VDACS if they notice any unusual ticks that have not been seen before or that occur in large numbers on an individual animal.” Virginia Cooperative Extension provides an online resource with information on commonly found ticks. If you find a tick that does not appear to be one of the ones typically found in this area, take in a sample in a container for either VDACS or Virginia Cooperative Extension employees to view. VDACS said, “Livestock producers should work with their herd veterinarians to develop a tick prevention and control program. Livestock owners also may contact VDACS’ Office of Veterinary Services at 804-786-2483.” To locate your local Cooperative Extension office visit www.ext.vt.edu.
