For more than 20 years, CDC’s
National Breast and Cervical
Cancer Early Detection Program
has provided free or low-cost
mammograms and Pap tests to
low-income women with little
or no health insurance. CDC’s
National Breast and Cervical
Cancer Early Detection Program
(NBCCEDP) has come a long way
since the law was passed in 1990
authorizing the formation of the
program. Originally limited to 8
states, the program now reaches
all 50 states, 5 U.S. territories,
the District of Columbia, and 12
American Indian/Alaska Native
tribes and tribal organizations.
Established under the Breast and
Cervical Cancer Mortality Pre-
vention Act of 1990, the program
ofers free and low-cost services
to aid the fght against breast
and cervical cancers. It places a
special focus on addressing the
disproportionately low screen-
ing rates among minority women
and those who are low-income,
uninsured, and underinsured. In
1993, NBCCEDP was expanded
to include American Indian and
Alaska Native tribes; in 1997,
the program spread across the
country to all 50 states. Program
Achievements
Since its inception, the NBC-
CEDP has served more than 3.9
million women, providing more
than 9.8 million breast and cer-
vical cancer screening examina-
tions. Its success undoubtedly
has saved lives. Funded programs
have diagnosed more than 52,694
breast cancers, 2,856 invasive cer-
vical cancers, and 136,837 prema-
lignant cervical lesions. Beyond
providing direct screening and
diagnostic services, NBCCEDP
promotes public and professional
education and supports patient
case management.
Over the years, the NBC-
CEDP has successfully imple-
mented modifcations to improve
the program’s structure and level
of service for women in need. For
example, new legislation in 2000
allowed states to ofer women di-
agnosed with cancer through the
NBCCEDP access to treatment
through a special Medicaid op-
tion. All 50 states and the District
of Columbia have since approved
this option. Qualifcations for
Program Services
To receive NBCCEDP screen-
ings and other services, Federal
guidelines require a woman to be
underinsured or uninsured, and
at or below 250 percent of the
federal poverty level. Tey also
must be between the ages of 40
and 64 for breast cancer screen-
ing, and 18 and 64 for cervical
cancer screening services. An es-
timated 8 to 11 percent of women
throughout the U.S. are eligible
to receive services. To fnd out if
you qualify for free or low-cost
mammograms and Pap tests and
where to get screened, call Every
Woman’s Life at 1-866-395-4968.

Winchester Social Services
Solicits Heater Donations
For the past six years, the Winchester Department of Social
Services (WDSS) has sponsored a heater drive to assist area
residents manage unexpected increases in the cost of heating
expenses. With the generous support of the community, WDSS
has been able to purchase portable electric heaters for many area
residents. Tere has also been a signifcant increase in the num-
ber of families and individuals requesting help with security de-
posits and termination notices.
Because of the sustained lagging economy, more and more
households continue to be in need. Te Department of Social
Services administers the Low Income Home Energy Assistance
Program that if funded by the Commonwealth of Virginia and the
Federal Government. Quite often, the assistance ofered will not
resolve the heating emergency or is sufcient enough to pay the
required Security Deposit. It is anticipated that this greater need
will continue, the Winchester Department of Social Services is
sponsoring a Heater Assistance Drive again this year. Te hope
is to continue providing portable electric heaters or if needed,
fnancial help to alleviate primary heat source disconnects or se-
curity deposits.
Please contact Georjean Coco at (540) 686-4836 if you or your
organization would like to contribute to the drive. Donations of
new, portable electric heaters can be delivered to WDSS at 24
Baker Street, Winchester, VA 22601. Monetary donations may be
mailed or dropped of at the same address. Please make checks
payable to Winchester Department of Social Services and be sure
to note: “Heating Assistance Fund”. Your support is greatly ap-
preciated.
If you or anyone you know is in need of winter heating assis-
tance, please call the Winchester Department of Social Services

Frederick County Report
A ceremonial groundbreaking
was held in Middletown last week,
to commemorate the start of con-
struction of a new Dollar General
store, a controversial undertaking
which divided citizens and town
councilors alike. It is expected to
be completed soon.
Te Middletown Planning Com-
mission voted to reject the store’s
site plan, with only town planner
Fred Wharton voting for the de-
velopment.
Te commission members vot-
ing against the development ar-
gued that the site plan was in vio-
lation of the town’s comprehensive
plan. Tey also argued that the
store would not bring in as many
jobs, or the income, the town was
hoping for.
The Dollar General store ap-
pealed the planning commission’s
decision to the town council. Te
council voted four-to-two to ap-
prove the site plan.
The 1910 four square house,
located at 7965 Main Street, is
being razed, along with the out-
buildings and old trees and shrubs
on the property. By the end of the
week, nothing will remain of the
property.
Mayor Mark Brown said he is
pleased that Dollar General se-
lected Middletown to construct
its newest store, valued at an
assumed $2 million dollars. Te
Dollar General will replace the
general store that Middletown
lost years ago. Te store will be
a “great addition to Town, and a
great convenience for the people
of Middletown,” Brown said.
Warner Crocker, the artistic
director at Wayside Teater, mir-
rored the mayor’s view.
“Middletown needs more busi-
nesses. It’s great to see a new busi-
ness coming to Town,” Crocker
said.
Mark Davis, a town councilor
and member of the planning com-
mission who voted twice against

Free Seniors On the Go Classes at Loving Arms:
  We have had a 6 week Art Class program
throughout the summer which has been a great
success!! Te last session began Aug. 9th and
the response had been heart warming and great
fun, says Annette Tait (Art Director). I have
enjoyed meeting more residents of Front Royal
as I am a transplant from Northern Virginia.
We began classes July 5th 2011 in the Great
Room at Loving Arms with 4 students. Since then
the classes have grown, 10-12 individuals. We had a
variety of levels including one participant who has
had her work in Juried Art Show!!  
Our main focus is on graphite (pencil sketches),
watercolor, watercolor pencils, pen and ink and
mixed media.
   Tis new venture at Loving Arms has been a
huge success with the original 4 students bringing
a friend and spreading the word. We are having a
great time with lots of good conversation, laughs,
along with producing some impressive art work.
Chef Patrick even brought in some goodies for
munching mmmm....
Dear Ryan,
  Tank you and everyone at Loving
Arms. My dad loves being there. I

Controversy still surrounds Middletown Dollar General groundbreaking
October 26 - November 1, 2011 • Frederick County Report • Page 5 Read all issues in their entirety FREE on www.FredCoReport.com
Dear Editor;
I am curious why there has
been so little interest in the build-
ing of a Dollar General Store in
the middle of residential homes
in Middletown. Something that
was pushed through by a bully
Town Council?
We have lived directly next
door to where this eye sore will
be built for 2 years.
When they “supposedly” made
the rounds to get residence feed-
back, no one ever spoke with us
(the most afected party involved).
In addition there was a complete
run around about getting infor-
mation on the project UNTIL,
they needed signatures from the
homeowners in that area to sign
of on an alley way before Dollar
General could get clear title to
close. We refused to sign without
something in writing regarding a
barrier between our home and
this store. Tey did agree to a 6’
privacy fence around the proper-
ty. We also asked for a guarantee
from Dollar General that if (in my
opinion when) the store does not
make it and is empty that they
will maintain the property and
fence. We also asked for minimal
compensation for our headaches,
legal advise etc. We were ha-
rassed daily as to when we would
be signing of on this. Today they
are excavating the property and
have begun construction. Now
how does this happen when they
need homeowners signatures
and that has not happened (we
are not the only ones who were
refusing to sign). Or would a
title company really take the risk
of providing them title insurance
without clear title? If so, I would
like to see the proof!
Or, is this just Corporate
America at its worst – AGAIN.
Attempting to prove that what
homeowners want does not mat-
ter? What a shame that a quaint
town is bullied by a good ole boys
network in this day and time.
Ones that are not interested in
adding residential homes to the
town with additional citizens
that might stand up to them but
rather an eye sore of a building
put down in the middle of town.
What a shame!
I am looking at fling an injunc-
tion to cease construction until
I am satisfed that they are fol-
lowing legal means of continuing
with construction.
Tank you,
Ellen DePoy-Golden

October 23-29 is National Lead
Poisoning Prevention Week. Tis
year’s theme is “Lead-Free Kids
for a Healthy Future.” Childhood
lead poisoning is considered the
most preventable environmental
disease of young children, but ap-
proximately one million children
have elevated blood lead levels.
National Lead Poisoning Pre-
vention Week occurs every year
during the last full week in Octo-
ber (Senate. Resolution 199).
During National Lead Poison-
ing Prevention Week, CDC aims
to:
Raise awareness about lead
poisoning
Stress the importance of
screening the highest risk
children younger than 6 years
of age (preferably by ages 1
and 2) if they have not been
tested yet
Highlight partner’s eforts to
prevent childhood lead poi-
soning
Urge people to take steps to
reduce lead exposure
Many states and communities
ofer free blood-lead testing and
conduct various education and
awareness events. For more infor-
mation about NLPPW activities
in your area, please contact your
state or local health department.
Lead poisoning is entirely pre-
ventable. Te key is stopping chil-
dren from coming into contact
with lead and treating children




who have been poisoned by lead.
Learn more about preventing
childhood lead exposure.
Childhood Lead Exposure
Young children often place their
toys, fngers, and other objects in
their mouth as part of their nor-
mal development, this hand-to-
mouth activity may put them in
contact with lead paint or dust.
Te most common sources of
lead exposure for children are
chips and particles of old lead
paint. Although children may
be directly exposed to lead from
paint by swallowing paint chips,
they are more commonly exposed
by swallowing house dust or soil
contaminated by leaded paint.
Tis happens because lead paint
chips become ground into tiny
bits that become part of the dust
and soil in and around homes. Tis
usually occurs when leaded paint
becomes old or worn or is subject
to constant rubbing (as on doors
and windowsills and wells). In ad-
dition, lead can be scattered when
paint is disturbed during destruc-
tion, remodeling, paint removal,
or preparation of painted surfaces
for repainting Lead, which is in-
visible to the naked eye and has
no smell, may be found in other
sources. Tese sources may be
the exposure source for as many
as 30% of lead-poisoned children
in certain areas across the United
States. Tey include traditional
home health remedies such as az-
arcon and greta, which are used
for upset stomach or indigestion
in the Hispanic community, im-
ported candies, toys, toy jewelry,
cosmetics, pottery and ceramics,
drinking water contaminated by
lead leaching from lead pipes, sol-
der, brass fxtures, or valves and
consumer products, including
tea kettles and vinyl miniblinds.
Additionally, a variety of work
and hobby activities and products
expose adults to lead. Tis also can
result in lead exposure for their
families. Activities that are asso-
ciated with lead exposure include
indoor fring range use, home re-
pairs and remodeling, and pottery
making. “Take-home” exposures
may result when people whose
jobs expose them to lead wear
their work clothes home or wash
them with the family laundry. It
also may result when they bring
scrap or waste material home
from work.
Protecting Children from Lead
Exposure
Lead poisoning is entirely pre-
ventable. Te key is stopping chil-
dren from coming into contact
with lead and treating children
who have been poisoned by lead.
Te goal is to prevent lead expo-
sure to children before they are
harmed. Tere are many ways
parents can reduce a child’s expo-
sure to lead. Te key is stopping
children from coming into con-
tact with lead. Lead hazards in a
child’s environment must be iden-
tifed and controlled or removed
safely. For more information on
sources of lead exposure and pre-
vention tips, please visit our Web
site at www.cdc.gov/nceh/lead
or call the CDC-INFO at 1-800-

Frederick County Report
Zombies, ghosts, and creatures
from the beyond are all ready to
treat you to a Halloween scare
at Camp Rock Enon this week-
end. Tis year is the third annual
haunted woods, which raises
money to improve the Boy Scout
camp. Local Boy Scouts and Ven-
turers, a co-ed group aged 14 to
21, which is the next step beyond
Boy Scouts, have worked for
months organizing a half-mile
trail through the woods, guaran-
teed to raise your hair. Tere also
is a haunted house, which emits
blood curdling cries frequently.
Videos of last week-end’s events
show little children running from
ghouls, and parents holding each
other’s hands.
Te goblins play each role suit-
ed to the current participants,
toning it down for children, and
raising the bar for the older set.
You also can enjoy hot cider and
snacks, if you can stomach them
after your fright.
Te Haunted Woods are at 292
Rock Enon Springs Road, Gore,
Virginia. Te woods are open on
Friday from 6 pm to 10 pm, on
Saturday from 1 pm to 4 pm, and
then again from 6 pm to 11pm.
Te Woods is open on Sunday
from 1 pm to 5 pm.

the site plan is still opposed.
“I feel that it was a very unfor-
tunate decision, because although
we should all recognize the impor-
tance of bringing new businesses
to town, this was approved without
any regard for the cohesiveness of
our Town’s streetscape, and ar-
chitectural fabric. The decision
is in clear violation of the goals
and objectives for Main Street, as
spelled out in our Comprehensive
Plan. Once again the town govern-
ment acted, ignoring any notion of
consistent land use planning, in
favor of a relatively small amount
of tax revenue, which in my view
may turn out to be unsustainable
as well,” Davis said.
William Sirbaugh, the Executive
Director at the Lord Fairfax Small
Business Development Center,
agrees with Councilor Davis.
“When a community has lim-
ited retail already, it needs to put
an emphasis on bringing new
retail to the community. In doing
so, the community needs to decide
how to position itself. What is the
ultimate goal of the community?
How does the community want to
be viewed from the outside? What
do visitors expect to fnd when
they visit? Middletown has the
Wayside Teater, the battlefeld,
and Belle Grove. Will those con-
stituents be satisfed during their
visit with the new retail? Does the
retail coalesce with what is here
already? Or do you want to be
known for having a Dollar General
store,” he said.
A number of local business
owners are convinced that Dollar
General will not bring new busi-
ness to town and speculate that
the store will lose money at the
site. In the meantime, will it hurt
local businesses?
In the short-term, a visit to the
construction site revealed that
the general contractor is from
Tennessee, and the construction
crews were brought in from Har-
risonburg.

Vampires have frightened peo-
ple for generations. Te fangs, the
wings, the immortality: it’s scary
stuf. Tough that’s all legend—a
subject for movies and Halloween
costumes— a diferent breed of
vampire could be lurking in your
home right now. Tese vampires
don’t drink blood; they consume
electricity.
An energy vampire, also called
a phantom or parasitic load, is any
device that consumes electricity
when turned “of.” Tese electronic
devices provide the modern-day
conveniences we love, but they also
waste energy and cost us money.
Vampire loads can be found
in almost every room of a home,
though a favorite spot is the enter-
tainment center. When the televi-
sion is turned of, it isn’t really of.
It’s sitting there, waiting patiently
for someone to press the ‘on’ but-
ton of the remote—and waiting uses
energy. TVs also use energy to re-
member channel line-ups, language
preferences, and the time. VCRs,
DVD players, DVRs, and cable or
satellite boxes also use energy when
turned of.
Te problem is signifcant. Ac-
cording to a study conducted by
the Lawrence Berkeley National
Laboratory, the average home loses
8 percent of its monthly energy con-
sumption to these energy vampires.
A full 75 percent of the power used
to run home electronics is con-
sumed when those appliances are
turned of, according to the U.S. De-
partment of Energy.
Common energy vampires in-
clude:
TVs
Stereos
VCRs, DVD players, and DVRs
Cable/satellite boxes
Computers
Battery chargers
According to the Arlington, Va.-
based National Rural Electric Co-
operative Association, the average
electric co-op residential member
consumes roughly 13,900 kilowatt-
hours (kWh) per year. If 8 percent of
this power is consumed when elec-
tronics are turned of, the average
home wastes 1,112 kWh annually.
Assuming a cost of $0.10 per
kWh, the average household spends






$111 per year to pay for these vam-
pire loads.
Te good news is that a sharp
stake isn’t necessary to kill of these
vampires (unlike their TV and mov-
ie counterparts). To eliminate the
power consumption of an energy
vampire, simply unplug the device
or plug it into a power strip and use
the power strip’s switch to eliminate

electricity to everything plugged
into it. Power strips work like an ex-
tension of the wall outlet.
Tey completely cut all power to
plugs when they are switched of.
Of course, there’s always a catch.
Some devices use standby power to
make life more convenient. If you
unplug your television or cable/sat-
ellite receiver box, what happens?
When plugged back in, the TV or
set top box usually will have to run
its initial setup program. Depend-
ing on the particular device, it could
take up to 20 minutes for channels
to be recognized or for the user to
reset preferences, which isn’t some-
thing most of us are willing to do
every day.
But there are numerous devices
in the home that can be unplugged
easily and safely, or plugged into a
power strip, without causing any in-
convenience. Computer equipment,
such as printers, scanners, desktop
computers, and broadband mo-
dems, can be “unplugged” without
harm.
Cell phone, tool, and other battery
chargers also should be unplugged
when not in use. Even though the
charger is not charging anything, it
is still drawing power. A new de-
vice called the “smart” strip is be-
ginning to fnd its way onto store
shelves. Smart power strips allow
you to plug devices into a specially
marked section of the power strip
so they will still have power when
turned of. Other devices that can
be turned of safely are plugged into
the rest of the strip.
Tis allows you to turn of parts
of a home entertainment system,
such as the stereo, DVD player, or
home theater audio system, without
losing the ability to record programs
to a DVR or having to reprogram
the television every time you want
to watch a show.
From svec website
For devices that cannot be turned
of, consumers should look for En-
ergy Star-certifed devices or ask the
salesperson about a device’s standby
power consumption. Tere can be
big diferences in power consump-
tion between manufacturers, and
sometimes even between models
from the same manufacturer.
As in the movies, it is impossible
to kill of all of the energy vampires
in your home—but every energy
vampire vanquished will mean that
much less of a bite out of your wal-
let.
Landscaping
Landscaping is a natural and
beautiful way to keep your home
more comfortable and reduce your
energy bills. In addition to adding
aesthetic value and environmental
quality to your home, a well-placed
tree, shrub, or vine can deliver ef-
fective shade, act as a windbreak,
and reduce overall energy bills.
Carefully positioned trees can save
up to 25% of a typical household’s
energy for heating and cooling.
Computer models from DOE pre-
dict that just three trees, properly
placed around the house, can save
an average household between $100
and $250 in heating and cooling en-
ergy costs annually. During the sum-
mer months, the most efective way
to keep your home cool is to prevent
the heat from building up in the frst
place. A primary source of heat
buildup is sunlight absorbed by your
home’s roof, walls, and windows.
Dark-colored home exteriors absorb
70% to 90% of the radiant energy
from the sun that strikes the home’s
surfaces. Some of this absorbed en-
ergy is then transferred into your
home by way of conduction, result-
ing in heat gain inside the house.
In contrast, light-colored surfaces
efectively refect most of the heat
away from your home. Landscaping
can also help block and absorb the
sun’s energy to help decrease heat
buildup in your home by provid-
ing shade and evaporative cooling.
Shading and evaporative cooling
from trees can reduce the air tem-
perature around your home. Studies
conducted by the Lawrence Berkeley
National Laboratory found summer
daytime air temperatures to be 3° to
6°F cooler in tree-shaded neighbor-
hoods than in treeless areas. Te
energy-conserving landscape strat-
egies you should use for your home
depend on the type of climate in
which you live.
Landscaping Tips - Dependent on
Geographic Area:
Trees that lose their leaves in
the fall (i.e., deciduous) are the
most efective at reducing heat-
ing and cooling energy costs.
When selectively placed around
a house, they provide excellent
protection from the summer
sun but permit winter sunlight
to reach and warm your house.
Te height, growth rate, branch
spread, and shape are all factors
to consider in choosing a tree.
Vines provide shading and
cooling. Grown on trellises,
vines can shade windows or the
whole side of a house.
Defect winter winds by plant-
ing evergreen trees and shrubs
on the north and west sides of
your house; defect summer
winds by planting on the south
and west sides of your house.
Buildings and Trees - Natural
Partners
Deciduous trees planted on
the south and on the west will
help keep your house cool in the
summer and allow sun to shine
in the windows in the winter.
Orientation of the house and sur-
rounding landscaping has a large
efect on energy consumption. A
well-oriented, well-designed home
admits low-angle winter sun to re-
duce heating bills; rejects overhead
summer sun to reduce cooling
bills; and minimizes the chill ef-
fect of winter winds. Fences, walls,
other nearby buildings, and rows
of trees or shrubs block or channel
the wind. Bodies of water moder-
ate temperature but increase hu-
midity and produce glare. Trees
provide shade, windbreaks, and
wind channels. Pavement refects
or absorbs heat, depending on
whether it is light or dark in color.
Contact your county extension
agents, public libraries, local nurser-
ies, landscape architects, landscape
contractors, and state and local en-
ergy ofces for additional informa-
tion on energy-efcient landscaping
and regional plants and their main-
tenance requirements.

Te Ebb and Flow
of Jimmie Johnson
CONCORD, N.C. -- Tink the
Chase for the Sprint Cup varies
week to week? Consider the ex-
treme example of the driver who
has won the past fve champion-
ships.
Jimmie Johnson ofers evi-
dence of how the NASCAR title
format punishes mistakes more
than it rewards successes.
Finishes of 10th and 18th in
the Chase’s frst two races left
Johnson 29 points behind Tony
Stewart, who won them both.
Ten Johnson fnished second at
Dover and frst at Kansas, pull-
ing to within four points of the
lead, now occupied by Carl Ed-
wards.
Johnson crashed at Charlotte
in the Bank of America 500, re-
sulting in a placing of 34th. As a
result, he is now eighth, 35 points
behind Edwards. Te point sys-
tem changed this year, and each
point has a greater value. Com-
paring point totals of 2010 with
those of the current year, the gap
between Edwards and Johnson,
35 points, is the equivalent of
about 90 under the previous for-
mat.
Five races remain. Johnson’s
bid for a sixth straight title is in
jeopardy, but he is far from con-
ceding.
“We just have to go racing,”
he said. “Tat’s all there is to
it. Tere are fve races left, and
right now all we have are those
fve races.
“Defnitely not the night we
wanted. Tis is not going to help
us win a sixth championship.
I promise you, this team and
myself, we won’t quit. We will
go for every point we can from
here on out, and hopefully we
are still champions at the end of
the year.”
Te volatility is obvious in ev-
eryone’s results except Edwards,
who has fnished eighth or better
in each Chase race (ninth or bet-
ter in his last eight, dating back
to the regular season), and Kevin
Harvick, who has fnished 12th
or better in the Chase events.
At the top, they are fve points
apart.
Te last four positions in the
Chase standings are occupied
by drivers in considerably worse
situations than Johnson. Dale
Earnhardt Jr. is 60 points out of
the lead, followed by Ryan New-
man (-61), Jef Gordon (-66) and
Denny Hamlin (-86).

Biffle Is Racing
as Hard as He Can
This hasn’t been the season Greg
Biffle expected, though he certainly
has time to pick up the pieces.
The 39-year-old Biffle didn’t win
during the 2008 regular season, but
after making the Chase, proceeded to
win its first two races. He wound up
third in the Sprint Cup standings.
For now, Biffle’s first priority is
making the Chase, but that doesn’t
mean he’s going to back off.
“We’re certainly not racing conserv-
atively,” he said. “We’re racing to win,
but we’re not going to do anything stu-
pid.
“We know we have to stay in (the top
12 in order to qualify for the Chase).
It’s tight ... and we’re doing all we can
do.”
Roush Fenway Racing put Biffle in
what was then still the Winston Cup
Series back in 2003. He finished sec-
ond in the Chase standings two years
later. A year ago, three Roush Fenway
drivers — Biffle, Carl Edwards and
Matt Kenseth — made the Chase.
They could do it again, but the posi-
tions of Biffle and Kenseth are hardly
secure as the regular season enters its
final four races.
“We’re just going to have to be bet-
ter,” said Biffle. “We know that. We’re
nervous about getting in (the Chase),
and anything can happen. ... There are
some races we’re concerned about
leading up to the cutoff (end of the reg-
ular season), and we know we’re on
the bubble, so it’s important to have
good finishes right now.”
Biffle, from Vancouver, Wash., is
one of only two drivers to have won
championships in both the Nation-
wide and Camping World Truck
series. (Johnny Benson is the other.)
Biffle also was rookie of the year in
both series. He came up through
NASCAR’s developmental system,
winning track championships early in
his career at Tri-City Raceway in West
Richland, Wash., and Portland (Ore.)
Speedway.
“Really, we’re working as hard as we
can every week to bring the best race
cars we can to the track,” said Biffle.
“It’s important that we have the best
possible equipment right now.
“We’re racing as hard as we can.
We’re not taking big risks, but, at the
same time, we’re racing for the win.”

Jimmie Johnson’s quest for a sixth straight Cup title took a hit after a
wreck at Charlotte Motor Speedway dropped him to eighth in the stand-
ings with fve races left. (John Clark/NASCAR This Week photo)
Jonathan Lucci
Frederick County Report
Friday night at Liberty High School witnessed an intense battle be-
tween Sherando and Liberty, as the Warriors improved to 6-2 and took
one more step toward the division championship and the playoffs. The
game was very tight with the Warriors winning 10-7 in a physical bout
that was fought largely in the trenches. The Warriors showed an ability
to move the ball down the feld, behind quar-
terback Jalen Brisco and running backs
Joe Ojo and Tre Porter. However, as
has sometimes been the case this
season, Sherando squandered op-
portunities on promising drives and
failed to score a large number of
points.
The Sherando defense was
masterful, holding Liberty to a single touchdown that came on a single
long run caused by a breakdown for one play in the Warriors otherwise
stout defense. Liberty showed an inability to fnish the job on the War-
riors when they did have the opportunity to score and take the lead.
Despite scoring frst, Liberty was unable to hold off Sherando’s powerful
running attack. Joe Ojo and Tre Porter, both star running backs, at times
shredded the Liberty defensive front.
The game came down in the end to the foot of the Sherando
kicker Tyler Klauser, who was called on by Coach Bill Hall to kick a feld
goal with the game tied 7-7. A lesser player may have wilted under the
intense pressure: the game’s outcome possibly on your shoulders in a
hostile environment far from home. Instead the young man put the ball
right through the uprights, leaving no doubt as to the superior team that
night. The Warriors celebrated a second win in one week, having played
a makeup game against Handley on Monday.
“It just feels so good to beat Liberty and Handley not just in the same
season, but the same week,” said senior linebacker Darren Dawson.
The Warriors will now face Skyline as their season draws to-
ward a trip to the playoffs that some are starting to feel is inevitable. But
the Warriors are not looking past Skyline, they have their sights frmly
set on a district championship and the coveted Apple Cup.

Canister Set
Q:
I have a spun aluminum can-
ister set which made in 1957
by Kromex. It includes four sugar,
tea and coffee canisters in addition
to matching salt and pepper shak-
ers, a spice rack with eight con-
tainers and a bread box. All are in
excellent condition. I would like to
know the approximate value of this
set. — Joyce, Daytona Beach, Fla.
A:
As more and more people are
restoring mid-century homes,
the price of accessories such as your
canister set from 1957 continue to
edge up in value. It’s a plus that your
set appears to be fairly complete and
is in such excellent condition. One of
the better reference books for kitchen
accessories from the post-war period
is “Spiffy Kitchen Collectibles” by
Brian S. Alexander (Krause Publica-
tions, $24.99). This guide features
several canister sets, and most are
valued in the $25 to $75 range.
***
Q:
I have a silver spoon from
the Columbian Exposition
of 1892. How much is it worth? —
Glenn, Peoria, Ariz.
A:
A souvenir spoon from the
Columbian Exposition recent-
ly sold on eBay for $35. There were
dozens of spoons with various designs
sold at the event, but most seem to
be selling in the $25 to $35 range.
On the other hand, one of the most
popular fairs was the Louisiana Pur-
chase Exposition of 1904, commonly
known as the St. Louis World’s Fair.
A spoon showing an image of Jeffer-
son and Napoleon currently sells in
the $50 to $100 range; a demitasse
spoon with twisted handle, $35 to
$50; and one showing Festival Hall
and the Cascades, $600 to $800.
***
Q:
I have several Life magazines
covering the assassination
of President John F. Kennedy and
a Look magazine from 1964 with
an article about JFK. I also have
“Kennedy: His Family in Pictures”
from the editor of Look, and a Rob-
ert Kennedy memorial issue dated
1968. — Sharon, Rio Rancho, N.M.
A:
Most of the items you listed
are fairly common. Keep in
mind that Life magazine published
millions of copies each week and
even more of special issues. The JFK
and RFK magazines that you listed
are probably worth about $10 each.
The Kennedy book generally retails
for about the same.

Keep Pets Safe
This Halloween
DEAR PAW’S CORNER: Last
Halloween, our dog “Valiant” ran
into the room as my kids were tear-
ing 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. For-
tunately, he only had to stay over-
night 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 good-
ies being handed out, as they’re
not healthy (and can even be poi-
sonous) and they could ingest dan-
gerous 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 pre-
cautions 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 neigh-
borhood so they don’t ingest any-
thing harmful, and to keep approach-
ing 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.

Halloween Safety
“Trick or Treat”
Ghosts, Ghouls, and Goblins…Halloween is a fun and excit-
ing time for kids of all ages. It is a festive time and we need to
remember to celebrate it safely. Te Life Safety Division of the
Frederick County Fire and Rescue Department would like to
take a moment to remind all the trick-or treater’s to have fun
this Halloween.
1. Jack-o-lanterns are a Halloween tradition, but instead of a tra-
ditional candle, try a battery-powered candle to get that eerie
glow.
2. Make sure all costumes are fame retardant. Most store-
bought costumes are made with fame-retardant materials. If
you make your costume, ask your fabric shop for fame-retar-
dant materials.
3. Make sure your children can be seen at night. Add refective
tape, glow sticks, and always carry a fashlight with you.
4. Remember to look both ways before crossing the street. If you
children are wearing masks, have them remove them to cross
the street.
5. Never let children trick-or-treat alone. Adult supervision is a
safety must.
6. Only go to homes of people you know. Stay in well-lit areas,
and use sidewalks when possible.
7. Remind children never to eat candy until they return home.
Inspect all candies and fruits. Trow away any treat that is un-
wrapped or appears to have been tampered with.
Share a Health-e-Card
