Middletown Town Council Meeting and Public Hearings
By Sue Golden Frederick County Report The Middletown Town Council met on Tuesday, October 11th. Prior to the Council meeting, the Council held public hearings on three issues: an increase in the real estate tax rate from .065 per $100, to .10 per $100, a change to pay the mayor’s salary in monthly installments, as opposed to the current payment of twice a year, and a change to make the Code of Middletown gender-neutral. There were no speakers at the hearings. The Council unanimously passed the latter two issues. The real estate tax issue was shelved until information requested by the Council is provided and reviewed. Mayor Mark Brown informed the Council that Councilor Gerald D. (Dave) Sinclair was not eligible to vote as a Councilor, while he was acting Mayor. Therefore, the vote to raise the fees for turning off and on water for late payment passed on its first and second readings by three votes to two, at the last Town Council meeting. Currently, a delinquent bill is charged ten percent until paid. If the bill is not paid within 35 days, the water is shut off by the Town. The Town charges $25 to reconnect the water line, in addition to the ten percent. The new ordinance will maintain the ten percent delinquent fee, but charge $50 to shut off the water, $50 to reconnect the water, and $50 if the Town reconnects the water during other than business hours. Councilor Donna M.D. Gray called the ordinance “outrageous,” and said people could not afford to pay their water bills, never mind pay the fees. The ordinance passed, with Councilor Gray and Councilor Charles H. Harbaugh IV voting no. A public hearing will be held on November 14, at 6:45 pm. The Council also sparred over moving the place and time of Town elections. Currently, the elections are held at Town Hall in May. The Council is looking at moving the elections to coincide with the November elections, which are held at Middletown Elementary School. The Town of Stephens City is looking at the same change. According to the Frederick County Registrar, Rick Miller, the Town will save money by sharing expenses with the County and State in November. Mr. Miller estimates a $3,000 savings, although that is not firm. The Councilors disagreed on whether money would be saved, and also over the fact that everyone on the Council, and the Mayor, will serve six extra months in office if the date is changed. Councilor Gray disputed the savings. The ordinance passed on the first and second readings, with Councilors Gray and Harbaugh voting no. There also was discussion of the fact that, after over a decade of the Middletown Police Department handling security for the Cedar Creek Battlefield Foundation, at a discounted price, during the reenactment of the Battle of Cedar Creek, the Chief of Police, Phillip Breeden, received a call within a month of the event from the Foundation, saying that the Middletown Police would not be needed this year. The Mayor commented that, even though the Town thought of the reenactment as a “Town” event, the Town is not included. The Mayor has fought for years to have the shuttle bus run through Middletown, to no avail. During September there were 30 calls for service to the Police Department, and the Department wrote 40 citations. The Department has two new felony cases, and received two indictments. The Department recently hired a new officer, Gruff Herman. The Department received 35 applications for the position. While presenting the monthly bills to Council, Councilor Carl H. Bernhards, Jr., noted that the Town usually pays about $25,000 per month to Winchester to purchase water. In September, the bill was $36,486, due to water leaks. On November 1st, the State will be doing a water survey. Councilor Gray voted against paying the bills. A representative from Congressman Frank Wolfe’s reelection campaign attended the meeting, as part of his outreach to the Town. The only other politician to attend recent Town Council meetings is Branson Miller (D), who is running for the Back Creek seat on the Board of Supervisors. Mr. Miller has attended a number of meetings. Councilor Sinclair did not attend the meeting.

Current Activity is Low; Outlook for Flu Vaccine is Good
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released the initial “FluView” report for the U.S. 2011–2012 flu season with the message that flu activity is currently low, making this the perfect time to get vaccinated. There should be lots of vaccine available, because the supply is projected to set a U.S. record. “It takes about two weeks after vaccination for the body’s immune response to fully kick in,” says Joe Bresee, M.D., Chief of CDC’s Influenza Epidemiology and Prevention Branch. “It’s best to get vaccinated before activity begins so that you’ll be protected once flu season starts in your community.”CDC routinely monitors influenza activity in the United States year–round with a system that determines when and where influenza activity is occurring, determines what influenza viruses are circulating and detects changes in influenza viruses. The system also measures the burden of influenza disease in the United States, including tracking influenza related illness, hospitalizations and deaths. The CDC FluView Report is published each Friday from October through mid–May and appears at http://www.cdc.gov/flu/weekly/fluactivitysurv.htm. Flu Shots are available from the Lord Fairfax Health District in the following locations: Winchester/Frederick County, Clarke County, Warren County, Shenandoah County and Page County Health Departments Monday through Friday 8am to 4:30pm. No appointments necessary. They are also available at your local Rite Aid, CVS, Walmart and Walgreens.

Sherando students “Fight to Drive Right”
Teens learn dangers of texting while driving & driving under the influence of alcohol.
driven for the alcohol impairment course. While a deputy sheriff rode with a student, another deputy would throw objects into the course to see how well the driver would be able to maneuver around the object. Students’ scores were based on how well they could safely avoid the objects without hitting any cones. A John Deere “Gator” was used for the texting course. A member of one of the Sherando DECA teams would text the student who was driving and the student would have to text back. A deputy would score the student on how many cones he or she hit while driving and texting. The purpose of “Fight to Drive Right” was not to show how well the students could drive while texting or under the “effects” of alcohol, but to show the teenagers how these behaviors affect their ability to drive safely. Lauren Evers, a Sherando student, said she received a score of 15 out of a possible 45 for the alcohol impairment course. Hannah Fost, the treasurer of the Sherando chapter of DECA, said the idea for the event came from sympathy for people in the area who had recently lost loved ones due to car accidents. She said, “Little things are important. They can save your life.” Of the eighteen Sherando students who registered for

By Rachel Hamman Frederick County Report This past Sunday afternoon, Sherando High School students had the chance to see what it is like to drive “under the influence” and to see how dangerous it is to text while driving. The “Fight to Drive Right” was an event organized by DECA students with the assistance of members of the Frederick County Sheriff ’s Office.

The student parking lot at Sherando was set up with different courses to show students how texting and driving while intoxicated can affect their ability to drive safely. Of course, alcoholic beverages were not used, but students wore goggles that simulate what it feels like to drive while under the influence of alcohol. Members of Frederick County Sheriff ’s Office had set up cones for the courses. The Sherando Band’s golf cart was

History repeats itself with guns blazing at Cedar Creek
wounded while others stayed perfectly still throughout the reenactment. The crowds seemed delighted with the scenes of soldiers fighting furiously with each other. Before the infantry clashed, the cavalrymen thundered toward one another simulating a cavalry skirmish that opened the battle about a mile away from the site of the reenactment, which took place down the street from Belle Grove plantation where the battle swirled. After this the Union infantry advanced, and then were pushed back, just as they were in real life. However, their withdrawal was more ordered than the wild melee that actually accompanied the massive surprise attack masterminded by the Confederate high command. The first day’s reenactment ended with the Union soldiers retreating toward the small white Heater house. The second day witnessed the Union resurgence which accompanied the arrival of Union commander Phil Sheridan, who completed his famed ride from his headquarters in distant Winchester down the Valley Pike. The Union ended up winning a smashing lethal victory for their cause at Cedar Creek that helped get Abraham Lincoln reelected in November of that year. This effectively ended the chances of Southern independence, making Cedar Creek easily one of the most important engagements in the Civil War.

Gen. Sheridan at Cedar Creek, Oct. 19, 1864

By Jonathan Lucci Frederick County Report This past weekend, thousands of people gathered to watch Civil War reenactors from around the nation recreate the spectacle of the battle of Cedar Creek, which occurred in Middletown on October 19, 1864. The event lasted both Saturday and Sunday, with reenators in blue and gray, some on thundering horses recreating the gruesome reality of the Civil War. The beautiful cool autumn weather probably had something to do with the swelling crowds of people who lined up to watch the spectacle of artificial violence. The reenactment went off without a hitch, beginning with some cavalry demonstrations and continuing into the battle. Cedar Creek Battlefield Foundation President Tim Stowe opened the event, speaking of a member that recently died and dedicating a library in the

visitor’s center to her memory and honor. The battle taught the crowds that the combat of the Civil War was certainly a loud affair, as rows of muskets discharged simultaneously and cannon boomed, belching fire and smoke into the air. Some reenactors fell to the ground, pretending to have been struck, some of them writhing as if

The City of Winchester Public Works is announcing the beginning of the 2011 Leaf collection season. Leaf collection will officially begin October 24, 2011. We are asking all citizens to look for the “NO Parking-Leaf Collection” signs in your neighborhood which will begin to be posted October 17, 2011. We also are asking all citizens of Winchester to please adhere to the following leaf collection guidelines: I. Vacuum Collection Program Guidelines 1. Please rake leaves to your property line. 2. Please rake leaves into the gutter pan on the street. 3. Please place leaves out for collection by the start date indicated for your route. 4. Please keep leaf piles less than 2 feet in height. 5. Please keep leaves away from ditches, pipes, and culverts. 6. Please do not put DIRT, ROCKS, METAL OR BRANCHES; these items will prevent crews from collecting your piles. II. “Bag-n-Go” Please remember, you do not have to use vacuum service or wait for your scheduled collection to get rid of your leaves. Just put your bagged leaves near the curb in biodegradable lawn and leaf bags on your normal yard waste pick up day of Wednesday through January 18th, 2011. The reasons we request biodegradable bags are: 1. They are more environmentally friendly and can be recycled, right along with the leaves. 2. We will pick up as many bags as you put near the curb. III. Please understand, inclement weather can adversely affect our leaf collection schedule. IV. If you want to dispose of your bagged or loose leaves yourself, you may bring them to the Winchester Public Works Department at City Yards at 301 East Cork Street. V. To make sure your leaves get recycled, please do NOT include items other than leaves in the bags. VII. Backyard Composting Though not an actual City service, we do advocate backyard composting as the most efficient and environmentally sound disposal option. Call Michael Neese, Refuse-Recycling Coordinator at 540667-1815 ext. 1452 for details. The Winchester Public Works Department wants to thank all of the Citizens in advance for their cooperation with the 2011 Leaf Collection and if you have any questions please contact us.

State
the item is unavailable through that community, we can repost with a few clicks to GSA, NASA, SEWP (Solutions for Enterprise Procurement), or the open market. “Similar advantages are available for managing what we call ‘set-asides,’” Taylor continued. “Reverse auction enables buyers like VA to solicit only Disadvantaged Veteran-Owned Small Businesses. Then, if necessary, we can repost the requirement to the Veteran-Owned Small Business or other set-aside communities. “Everybody wins,” she said. “VA wins, the American taxpayer wins, small businesses win. Most importantly, our Veterans win.” (From a release)

Veterans Administration saving millions with innovative purchasing tool
The reverse auction is a commercial online service that allows VA buyers to purchase quality products — everything from printers to bath towels — at significant savings. The system has saved VA $2 million since March. A new way of buying medical supplies for its hospitals has saved the Department of Veterans Affairs $2 million since March 2011 Some people use coupons to save money when they go shopping. Sadly, the coupon route is not an option for the Department of Veterans Affairs when it goes shopping for the medical supplies it needs to care for America’s Veterans. But the professional buyers at VA recently figured out a way to buy quality merchandise for a lot less, and it’s already saved VA big bucks in 2011 alone. “Earlier this year we began using a commercial online reverse auction service,” explained Susan Taylor, Deputy Chief Procurement Officer for the Veterans Health Administration’s Office of Procurement and Logistics. “It’s free to the government, it requires no software or system installation to use, and it’s already saved us about two million dollars since March. In this kind of economic environment, two million dollars is not small change.” “It’s online shopping, pure and simple. Better yet, it’s onestop online shopping.” - Norbert Doyle, Acting Chief Procurement and Logistics Officer, VHA Taylor noted that in addition to the cost savings, the reverse auction has also been helpful in supporting VHA’s socio-economic small business goals. “Sixty-four percent of our reverse auction awards this year went to small businesses,” she said, “and half of those went to Veteran-owned small businesses.” So what’s a reverse auction, anyway? “A reverse auction is a competitive process in which a buyer, like VA, solicits bids from sellers during a period of time set by the buyer,” Taylor explained. “During the reverse auction, sellers have the opportunity to submit a single bid or multiple decreasing bids. So the more competitive the requirement, the better the savings. “Let me give you an example,” she continued. “Recently, we posted a ‘buy’ for exam lights to the GSA Contract Community. It closed with five sellers bidding a total of 19 times. The winning bid was $7,233…that’s 14 percent under what we estimated the lights would cost. Fourteen percent isn’t too shoddy. I’ll take 14 percent any day.” Taylor, who brought the reverse auction idea with her when she transferred to VA from another agency, gave another example of just how much money the Department is saving with this new way of buying. “We posted a ‘buy’ to the Open Market for sterilization trays. It closed with 13 sellers bidding a total of 32 times. The winning bid was $27,253, which is 10 percent below the government estimate. Ten percent here, 14 percent there…it adds up pretty quickly.” Norbert Doyle, Acting Chief Procurement and Logistics Officer, said VHA’s purchasing process was less efficient, and less cost effective, before the reverse auction came along. “Previously, VHA contracting personnel had to log in to multiple systems to post their requirements,” he explained. “They were also relying on conventional processes such as the phone, fax, and email to obtain quotes from vendors. “On top of that, any supplemental price negotiation involved manual, time-intensive efforts. The reverse auction eliminates all of that. It’s online shopping, pure and simple. Better yet, it’s one-stop online shopping.” Susan Taylor agreed that the reverse auction saves both money and time. (And time, as we all know, is money.) “Our buyers can now use a single tool to quickly post to a wide range of different competitive scenarios,” she said. “For example, we can try posting to the VA Federal Supply Schedule contract community.

FCPS recognizes National School Bus Safety Week
for students to remain in view of the driver, they should always follow the driver’s hand signal to cross.” In the early 1990’s, the National Association for Pupil Transportation, the National School Transportation Association, and the National Association of State Directors of Pupil Transportation Services joined forces to form the National School Bus Safety Week Committee and coordinate School Bus Safety Week activities throughout the country. The members of the committee, joined by several other sponsors, make this annual event possible. The purpose of National School Bus Safety Week is to emphasize the need for motorists and students to use increased care when near a school bus. National School Bus Safety Week also provides the opportunity to explain and emphasize the School Bus Stop Law, remind school bus drivers of the importance of their duties and keep the public advised on the important role pupil transportation plays in the total education program. Each day, the Frederick County Public Schools’ bus fleet travels in excess of 11,000 miles taking students to and from school, on field trips and to academic and athletic competitions. Over the course of the school year, the school bus fleet will amass more than 2.4 million miles. All Frederick County Public

School buses include the safety equipment mandated by the Virginia Department of Education as well as additional safety components such as retractable chains for driving in snow and ice, heated outside mirrors, and fog lamps. In addition, all Frederick County school buses are inspected every 2,500 miles as required by law. Puglisi says, “School buses have an excellent safety record and are the only mode of transportation that’s been reducing accidents, injuries and fatalities annually while increasing the

number of passengers and miles traveled. Although buses are designed to be safe, our safety record is the result of the professionals who work each day in the Transportation Department training drivers, inspecting buses, planning routes and driving the buses. It’s a team effort and each member of our team takes great pride in their work and the role they play in helping students be successful.” (From a release)

The Frederick County School Board has proclaimed October 17-21, National School Bus Safety Week. The theme of this year’s event is “Be Aware-Know the Danger Zone”. Frederick County Public Schools Transportation Director Chuck Puglisi says, “Studies have proven that the most dangerous part of the school bus ride for students is

when they get on and off the bus. This year’s theme is intended to remind the general public to pay close attention to buses when they see them on the street. The theme also serves as a reminder to students that they need to be safe when boarding and exiting the bus. The danger zone is immediately in front of and behind the bus. Since it is important

Without a decisive naval force we can do nothing definitive.
—George Washington

National

Happy Birthday Navy!
Steaming in column, probably while departing Hampton Roads, Virginia, at the start of their cruise around the World, December 1907.
In the United States, the Navy League of the United States organized the first Navy Day in 1922, holding it on October 27 because it was the birthday of the navy-obsessed President Theodore Roosevelt. Although meeting with mixed reviews the first year, in 1923 over 50 major cities participated, and the United States Navy sent a number of its ships to various port cities for the occasion. The 1945 Navy Day was an especially large celebration, with President Harry S. Truman reviewing the fleet in New York Harbor. In 1949, Louis A. Johnson, secretary of the newly created Department of Defense, directed that the U.S. Navy’s participation occur on Armed Forces Day in May, although as a civilian organization the Navy League was not affected by this directive, and continued to organize Navy Day celebrations as before. In the 1970s, the “birthday” of the Continental Navy was found to be October 13, 1775, and so CNO Admiral Elmo R. Zumwalt worked with the Navy League to define October 13 as the new date of Navy Day. However, Navy Day in the United States is still largely recognized as October 27th. The Navy traces its origins to the Continental Navy, which was established during the American Revolutionary War and was essentially disbanded as a separate entity shortly thereafter. The United States Constitution provided the legal basis for a military force by giving Congress the power “to provide and maintain a navy”. Today, the United States Navy is the naval warfare service branch of the United States Armed Forces and one of the seven uniformed services of the United States. The U.S. Navy is the largest in the world; its battle fleet tonnage is greater than that of the next 13 largest navies combined. The U.S. Navy also has the world’s largest carrier fleet, with 11 in service, one under construction (two planned), and one in reserve. The service had 328,516 personnel on active duty and 101,689 in the Navy Reserve in January 2011. It operates 286 ships in active service and more than 3,700 aircraft. (From wikipedia)

State
By Amanda Iacone Virginia Statehouse News RICHMOND — Overworked and under-trained social service employees are largely to blame for Virginia paying millions in Medicaid benefits to ineligible recipients, according to a state report. Virginia is looking to address these errors by 2014, when as many as 400,000 new Medicaid recipients are expected to join about 1 million current enrollees in a system that costs billions annually to operate. The two-year study found that the state could be overspending as much as $263 million a year or as little as $18 million based on 2009 data. “We don’t have the records to know whether or not (the Medicaid recipients) were eligible. Since the records aren’t there, they could have been eligible. There’s no way to know,” Ashley Colvin, chief legislative analyst for the Joint Legislative Audit and Review Commission, or JLARC, said about the cost disparity. Most improper payments to providers — 20 percent of all Medicaid claims — occurred because caseworkers enrolled people who were ineligible or who did not submit the required paperwork to determine their eligibility, said Colvin, who audited case files for his report. Colvin, author of the study, earlier this week presented the results into fraud, abuse and error rates in the state’s Medicaid system to the commission during its monthly meeting. The study also recommended using a computer-based enrollment process and strengthening internal auditing procedures. Colvin said the state has fewer caseworkers to handle the avalanche of new applications as more Virginians seek help during the Great Recession. These caseworkers also renew applications for existing recipients and handle applications for other assistance programs, like food stamps and energy assistance. Virginia’s city and county governments employ about 2,400 case workers. But as many as 300 more caseworkers are needed statewide, said Chris Spanos, a lobbyist for the Virginia League of Social Services Executives, which represents city and county social services de-

Overworked caseworkers cause of Medicaid eligibility error rates
partments’ directors. “We’re short hundreds of workers, which puts everyone under pressure,” Spanos said. Since 2007, the number of people enrolled in Medicaid has increased 14 percent in Virginia. The state also has lagged behind on training its workers to navigate government databases and regulations, Spanos said. “It appears that current training is inadequate to ensure that caseworkers comply with current Medicaid policy,” Colvin said. “Both (the state Department of Medical Assistance Services) and (the state Department of Social Services) report new types of training are needed. And local department staff also told us they need training in how to understand legal documents involving estates or stock transfers.” Cindi B. Jones, director of the Department of Medical Assistance Service, did not address Colvin’s concerns about the lack of training either in her remarks to JLARC or in a letter she submitted to the commission. Jones could not be reached for comment Thursday. “It’s not a surprise that this is what the report found. It confirms what I’ve been hearing anecdotally for years. They are overworked … . And it’s a difficult job,” said Charles Smith, director of American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 3001, which represents a few hundred case workers in Northern Virginia. “The requirements are difficult to keep pace with. They are ever changing,” Smith said.

Kids Voting to “Rally the Vote” on October 20 at Sherando High School
On Thursday, October 20, Kids Voting-Northern Shenandoah Valley will be hosting “Rally the Vote” at the Sherando High School auditorium. The event will begin with a meet and greet from 6-7 p.m. followed by the Kids Voting rally from 7-8 p.m. Kids Voting-Northern Shenandoah Valley Executive Director Shelley Williams says, “Rally the Vote is a new project for Kids Voting. Over the past several years, we have held a Kids Voting breakfast in the spring to celebrate Kids Voting and recognize the winners of the Kids Voting Award for Excellence in Teaching Civics and Citizenship. This year, we decided to try something new in hopes of getting students from across the region excited about the election on November eighth. The rally will be a fast-paced, fun-filled event that will be student-centered. It will include student-made videos, brief speeches by students about the importance of voting and an opportunity for the students in attendance to win a variety of prizes, including an iPad and two iPod Touches. The rally is being made possible thanks to a rally sponsorship from T.D. Clayton-State Farm Insurance. H.N. Funkhouser and Company is also serving as a rally sponsor.” Williams adds, “The primary goal of the rally is for students to have a good time, celebrate democracy and get excited about Kids Voting and the opportunity to vote in the Kids Voting election on November eighth. We’re hoping to have an atmosphere that’s similar to those at a national political convention. The difference is that Kids Voting is a non-partisan organization and instead of rallying around a particular set of candidates, our event will celebrate the freedom that we all have to participate in the election process.” During the meet and greet portion of Rally the Vote, students will be able to enjoy refreshments and meet local government officials as well as candidates running for office in November. Williams says, “Although the rally won’t include any speeches by candidates running for office in November, the meet and greet will provide students with the opportunity to meet some of the candidates and hear their perspectives on a variety of issues.” Rally the Vote is open to all students from Winchester as well as Clarke, Frederick, Shenandoah and Warren counties. Williams says, “All students from across the region served by Kids Voting-Northern Shenandoah Valley are encouraged to attend the rally. It doesn’t matter whether a student attends a public school, private school or is home schooled, they are welcome to attend the rally and participate in the Kids Voting election on November 8th.”

Jonathan Lucci Frederick County Report Drama and the spirit of young athletes striving for victory against a bitter enemy filled Arrowhead stadium on Monday night as the Sherando Warriors pulled off one of their most epic of victories against their rivals the Handley Judges. The game ended in highly dramatic fashion as the Warriors came back from a two touchdown deficit to take down the Judges in the second overtime. The scene was one of jubilation when the Warriors stormed the field in celebration, hugging and tackling each other to the ground in pure happiness. For most of the game, it seemed as if the Warriors would be defeated for the fourth straight time by the Judges, despite the fact the Warriors record seemed to indicate their superiority. The Judges scored twice in the first half and the Warriors squandered several promising drives. Sherando quarterback Jalen Brisco did not look at his best, floating passes that were intercepted and missing open receivers. Brisco was candid about his performance. “I didn’t have my best game, but we never gave up,” said Brisco in the locker room after the game. The mood at halftime was one of frustration and anger, the players and coaches seeming to sense they were in a position to come back and tie the game. Coaches exhorted players not to give up and that there was plenty of time to make up the relatively small deficit if they executed properly. The offensive and defensive linemen seemed particularly ready to up their game. Joe Ojo, as he has done so often this year, simply took over in the second half, flying down the field and shredding the Judges defensive front. Still the Warriors squandered a promising drive at the beginning of the third quarter. Finally the Warriors scored, but missed the extra point. Then Sherando got the ball with several minutes to go and Jalen Brisco stepped up to get a win for his teammates. With the calm mastery of a much older player, Brisco led his team down the field and scored a touchdown with very little time left on the clock. The stadium was filled with tense apprehension as the teams lined up for the two point conversion that would decide the game. Brisco delivered a superb pass and the score was tied, the Sherando stands erupting in cheers. At one point the Handley field goal kicker, who had been knocking long range kicks through in pregame, lined up to kick a short field goal for the win. But the ball fell quite short of the goal posts and the Warriors were given a reprieve. It was obvious on the Warrior’s faces that they were not going to let this new opportunity go. On the first play of their second overtime possession, Joe Ojo practically walked through a massive hole in the Handley defensive front. The crowd erupted and the players formed a giant mob in the middle of the field, joyously celebrating another crucial district win. After the game, Ojo was very humble about his game winning touchdown, giving the credit to his offensive line. “Heart and soul on the offensive line, heart and soul,” said Ojo after the game. Coach Bill Hall praised his players after the game, telling them that the result was an example of what happens when you persevere through trouble. “We fought through it, and I am very proud of my players,” said Coach Hall after the game. The win brings Sherando to a 5-2 record, undefeated in their district. The Warriors have only four days to prepare for their long road trip to Liberty High School scheduled for this Friday night. But for one night, the Warriors were on top of the world, an emotion typified by lineback Darren Dawson’s screams after the game, as he lay on the ground after being tackled by his defensive coordinator.

of violins. Her song is nothing if not well arranged. No one ever forgot about Earhart because she disappeared while trying to do something truly remarkable and, quite possibly, foolhardy. Patrick isn’t about to disappear. Had Earhart not aspired to fly around the world -- had she settled into a career of barnstorming at county fairs, or even into a spokeswoman, an Eleanor Roosevelt of the aviation set -- she would have faded away a bit. For now it’s sufficient for Patrick merely to compete, to test the water. Next year, when she competes full-time in the Nationwide Series, she’ll have to get more than her toes wet. ••• Monte Dutton covers motorsports for The Gaston (N.C.) Gazette.

Keep Pets Safe This Halloween
DEAR PAW’S CORNER: Last Halloween, our dog “Valiant” ran into the room as my kids were tearing into their trick-or-treat candy and ate several wrappers and a couple of pieces of chocolate. We had to rush him to the emergency pet hospital in another town. Fortunately, he only had to stay overnight for observation and he passed the wrappers without incident, but the veterinary assistant said that they see incidents like this every year at Halloween. Please remind your readers not to let their pets near all the goodies being handed out, as they’re not healthy (and can even be poisonous) and they could ingest dangerous items like candy wrappers. — Beth in Madison, Wisc. DEAR BETH: Thank you for the reminder! Halloween is a fun holiday for kids and families, but it can be a dangerous time for your pets if precautions aren’t taken. —Keep candy bowls and treats on a high counter or shelf where pets can’t reach. —Monitor your pets at all times as trick-or-treaters wander the neighborhood so they don’t ingest anything harmful, and to keep approaching children safe. —If you’re having a Halloween party or if your pet is very excitable, confine it to a quiet room or kennel cage with food, toys and a blanket or cushion until the festivities are over. Check in periodically. —If you see or suspect your pet has ingested chocolate, wrappers or any other dangerous item, contact the veterinarian or emergency pet clinic immediately. Send your questions or comments to [email protected], or write to Paw’s Corner, c/o King Features Weekly Service, P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475.
