By Sue Golden Frederick County Report Tempers began a slow burn as Mayor Mark Brown started the final Council Work Session for 2011. Councilor Carl H. Bernhards, Jr. questioned the authorization of the purchase of $100 worth of holiday bulbs. Supervisor of Public Works Donald Riffey correctly approved the purchase, but there is no line item in the budget for holiday purchases. Most of the funding for the July 4th celebration comes from money raised by the July 4th Committee. After some discussion, it was decided to create a new line item in the Public Works budget for “Seasonal Displays.” Councilor Bernhards then questioned several bills received from Stephen Butler, the Town Attorney. One bill, for 45 minutes of Mr. Butler’s time, related to calls with Councilor Donna M.G. Gray. Councilors were told previously that they should talk to the Council before contacting the Town Attorney directly. In this instance, many Council members felt that Councilor Gray had a conflict of interest, and should not be working on the item at issue. Councilor Mark Davis suggested that, since Councilor Gray was not in attendance at the meeting, the discussion be tabled. Mayor Brown noted that he discussed with the incoming Town lawyer, J. David Griffin that he was not to take calls from Councilors without Council approval. Tempers really flared when Councilor Bernhards questioned several bills regarding calls with Town Planner Fred Wharton and a conference call regarding the changing of the traffic light agreement with David Holliday. The traffic light at issue is to be installed by Mr. Holliday at the intersection of Route 11 and Reliance Road. Mayor Brown told Councilor Bernhards that if he had questions he should contact Mr. Wharton directly as the Chair of the Personnel and Finance Committee. Councilor Bernhards pushed back, saying it was not his job to keep track of Mr. Wharton. The two argued vociferously over the question of “oversight.” Mayor Brown accused Councilor Bernhards of not wanting to call Mr. Wharton because he does not like him. Councilor Bernhards responded that he was not questioning the spending of the money, but why Council was not kept in the loop. Mayor Brown said if Councilor Bernhards did not want the responsibility, the Council should find someone else to run the Personnel and Finance Committee. Councilor Gil Barrington noted that there needed to be some oversight. Councilor Bernhards noted that a policy was put in place months ago that Town employees were not to call the Town Attorney without talking with Town Manager Joan Roche. Finally, Chief of Police Phil Breeden suggested that since all of the Town employees report to Ms. Roche, she should be the one to follow up on the bills. The Council also argued whether a revised contract should have been sent to the Town Attorney. Both Councilors Davis and Bernhards argued that the revised agreement should have been distributed to the Council to review any changes. If there were changes that were of a legal issue, then the Attorney could be consulted. Mayor Brown

responded to Councilor Davis that “you are not a lawyer, you never were a lawyer, and I suggest you never will be a lawyer.” Councilor Davis responded that anyone can compare two documents to see where the changes were made. It is then a judgment call over whether a lawyer needs to be consulted. Mayor Brown disagreed. Another bill related to “proffer” issues. Again, Councilor Bernhards questioned why the Council was not informed which “proffer” was at issue. Mayor Brown said it was a “bill” issue and should be looked into as such. Councilor Davis charged that the Mayor was making “blanket rules.” Councilor Davis said that the Personnel and Finance Committee was red-flagging spending issues, that there needed to be an “information collection exercise” and that the Council should decide whether there was a problem. The Mayor was emphatic that it was a “bill” issue. Voices continued to be raised as Councilor Bernhards said that the Council needed to know which “proffer” was being discussed; was it the Holliday or Adams proffer. Councilor Davis agreed it was a legitimate issue. Councilor Davis believes that whether and when to call the Town Attorney was a minor procedural problem that needed to be fixed. Mayor Brown said he had authorized department heads to go to the Town Attorney and if there were any issues then the Council could “look into it.” Councilor Davis countered that the review would then be after the fact. Ms. Roche jumped into the fray and said she would have the Town Managers contact her first prior to calling the Town Attorney. The meeting toned down when Mayor Brown offered up the “1812 Resolution.” Next year is the anniversary of the War of 1812. According to Mayor Brown, over 70,000 Virginians served in the war. Councilor Davis noted that the resolution calls for the Town to “create local activities and support state-wide events and programs.” Councilor Davis did not believe the Town could fulfill that promise. Ms. Roche noted that the City of Alexandria changed the language to state only what the Town was willing to do. Councilor Davis suggested the language be changed from “execute” to “support” local activities. All agreed to the language change. Mayor Brown questioned the most recent changes to the Water Ordinance. The new ordinance says that there is a 45 day block before water can be shut off. The Mayor believes that language adds two weeks to the time before the Town can shut off someone’s water for non-payment. Councilor Davis noted that the Town had not been

Why Drain Hot-Water Heater?

Q: A:

A neighbor of mine said that he drains his hot water heater twice a year to keep it clear. Won’t draining the heater damage it? — Sal P., Tallahassee, Fla. Actually, draining the water heater can help it heat water more efficiently and even extend its service life. The trick is to turn it off and let the water cool for a few hours. Then, shut off the water supply to the heater so it won’t refill as you drain it. Note: If you need to turn off the water supply to the entire house or part of the house in order to turn off the heater’s supply, open the taps on the other sinks in your house. Attach a length of garden hose to the water-heater drain spigot, just long enough to comfortably hang over the edge of the bucket you’ll use to catch the drained water. (If a utility sink is nearby, that’s an even better option; run the hose to the sink.) Turn the spigot on slowly, until it’s fully open. Drain the tank as far as possible— this could mean detaching the hose and catching the last of the water in a bucket. Then, close the spigot and

turn the water supply back on to fill the tank, and turn on the heater. If you had to turn on the other taps in the house, once the water supply is back on, turn the taps off. (You want water to run through them after a shutoff to prevent air from getting trapped in the pipes.) Setting the water heater’s temperature to “low” or “warm” — just below 120 F — will save on the cost of heating and prevent accidental scalding from water that’s too hot. Draining the water heater once or twice a year will remove sediment that can build up due to a number of factors. It’s not always done in the wintertime, but if you have a day or two that is above freezing and you can let the heater cool overnight, go for it.

enforcing the water shut-off policy and that there was inconsistent enforcement. Councilor Davis challenged that there was finally a clear policy in place and questioned why the Mayor was trying to rehash the issue. The Mayor countered that he was not “rehashing” the issue; he was merely stating that the ordinance added time before water was shut off. A lively conversation ensued regarding trucks parked at the Liberty gas station on Reliance Road overnight. Councilor Barrington is looking into the issue of how long they can park and how much noise they can make by running their trucks during the night. Councilor Barrington said he asked Ms. Roche to look into the issue. Stephens City has a noise ordinance but Middletown does not. Mayor Brown said that Middletown has a “Mutual Support Agreement” with Frederick County. The County can test for the noise level and then ticket if required. Councilor Davis noted that the Town needs to review the special use permit held by Liberty. “At 12 pm last night, there were eight trucks parked at the station.” Chief Breeden said his officers check the trucks but not for noise. Councilor Bernhards asked whether they only checked for “overnight guests.” The Chief quipped “Yes, if that makes you more comfortable.” The Chief said that it is hard to check for the amount of time a truck is parked unless tires are marked. Also, without a noise decibel level written into the ordinance, they cannot ticket for noise levels. Mayor Brown reported that the Frederick County Board of Supervisors agreed to the Land Use Plan for the Reliance Road expansion and the plan will be included in the Comprehensive Plan for the County. Also, the Mayor reported that they are paving at the Carter’s Family Store building, and working on putting in the sewer lines. The Dollar General poured its concrete slabs and the building pieces will be brought in after the holidays. Water line repairs will begin on January 17 on Trish Street. The final blow up of the evening came when discussing the 14% increase in the water bill scheduled to be instituted by Winchester. First, the Councilors argued over how to calculate 14%. Councilor Charles Harbaugh IV believes the 14% increase takes the amount charged from $5.79 to $6.60. Councilor Davis argued that 14% times 5.79 is $.66, or $6.45. A heated debate ensued about whether to simply pass on the cost or to increase the amount charged to provide more money to the Town to spend on other issues. Councilor Davis vig-

New Year’s

A fishy New Year’s resolution
Do you think that all New Year’s resolutions are a bit fishy? Perhaps you’re suspicious of the fads that appear each January, offering us the latest in fitness and diet trends that promise a slimmer you in theyear to come. This year, instead of focusing on weight loss, why not resolve to try a tried and true resolution that will mean truly better overall health for you and your family -- eating well with foods like True North’s Omega-3 rich Atlantic salmon from the Gulf of Maine, where the salmon is the freshest? 2012 should be the year for paying more attention to overall health and well-being. Atlantic salmon is one of the most healthy and nutritious food choices available and is a great addition to any New Year’s resolution that is aimed at living healthier. It’s an excellent source of protein and loaded with vitamins and minerals, and is also one of the best sources of natural Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 polyunsaturated fats are often known as “the good fats” and are considered essential because we need them to live a healthy life but we have to get them from external sources like seafood. The American Heart Association recommends that people include at least two servings of fish, particularly fatty fish such as Atlantic salmon, per week in their diets in part because of numerous health benefits associated with Omega-3s. As a great source of Omega3 DHA and EPA essential fatty acids, Atlantic salmon helps the body’s heart health -- helping prevent heart disease and stroke, reducing the risk of cancer, lowering cholesterol; and may assist in brain health -- maintaining healthy brain activity and reducing the chance of developing Alzheimer’s disease in adults, and enhancing brain development and promoting learning in children. Studies have also shown Omega-3s may prevent depression, schizophrenia and memory loss, along with just generally increasing our daily energy levels and acting as an anti-inflammatory. Atlantic salmon leads the way, surpassing all other seafood, including wild salmon, in Omega3 DHA and EPA amounts per serving. Not only that, but it’s an excellent source of protein and lower than beef or chicken in saturated fats. It’s easy to start adding more Atlantic salmon to your diet and you can start out simply with basic recipes like True North’s Salmon with Soy-Honey and Wasabi Sauce. Salmon isn’t complicated to cook, and when you combine the great taste with the knowledge that it’s so good for

you, you’ll find yourself preparing it more often. A great way to work salmon in to your new year’s meal plan is to start slowly by swapping out one of your guilty pleasure meals -- something you know isn’t very good for you -- with a quick delicious meal of Atlantic salmon from the Gulf of Maine, where the salmon is the freshest. You’ll feel better about the choice you’ve made and your body and mind will thank you. Salmon with Soy-Honey and Wasabi Sauce 4 Servings Ingredients: 4 5-6 oz (150-180 g) Heritage Salmon Portions For salmon: 1/2 cup (125 ml) mirin (Japanese sweet rice wine) 2 tablespoons (30 ml) soy sauce 1/4 cup (65 ml) rice vinegar 1 tablespoon (15 ml) finely grated, peeled fresh ginger For sauce: 2 tablespoons (30 ml) soy sauce 1/4 cup (65 ml) honey 1 tablespoons (15 ml) fresh lime juice 2 teaspoons (10 ml) wasabi powder 1 tablespoons (15 ml) water Directions 1. Stir together mirin, soy sauce, vinegar, and ginger in a shallow dish. Add fish and marinate, covered, at room temperature for 10 minutes. 2. Boil soy sauce, honey, and lime juice in a small saucepan, stirring frequently, until thickened, about 4 minutes. 3. Stir together wasabi powder and water in a small bowl. 4. Preheat broiler, and cook fish on oiled rack, 5 to 7 inches from heat, until fish is just cooked through, about 6 minutes. Remove from heat and drizzle with

sonings like dill, lemon or pepper instead of butter or oil. • If you do use oil, make it olive oil. Research suggests that, like salmon, this monounsaturated fat lowers the risk of heart disease. • Pair your salmon with a healthy side dish like steamed broccoli, carrots or vegetable stir-fry. Not only will these colorful veggies look good, they’re good for you too.

Many young children overdosing from medicines at home
New educational program reminds parents to keep medication “Up and Away and Out of Sight” Each year, one of every 150 two–year–olds visits an emergency department in the United States for an unintentional medication overdose, most often after finding and eating or drinking medicines without adult supervision. To inform parents and caregivers about safe medication storage and what to do in case of an emergency, CDC, the Consumer Healthcare Products Association Education Foundation and a coalition of partners are launching an educational program, Up and Away and Out of Sight, encouraging parents to follow a few simple steps to protect children. “Parents may not be aware of the danger posed by leaving medications where young children can reach them. In recent years, the number of accidental overdoses in young children has increased by 20 percent,” said Dan Budnitz, M.D., M.P.H., director of CDC’s Medication Safety Program. “A few simple steps – done every time – can protect our children.” To protect children, parents and caregivers can: • Pick a place children cannot reach. Find a storage place too high for a child to reach or see. Any medicine or vitamin can cause harm if taken the wrong way, even medicine you buy without a prescription. • Put medicines and vitamins away every time you use them. Never leave medicines or vitamins out on a kitchen counter or at a sick child’s bedside, even if you have to give the medicine again in a few hours. • Hear the click. Make sure the safety cap is locked. If the medicine has a locking cap that turns, twist it until the click is heard. • Teach children about medicine safety. Never tell children that medicine is candy to get them to take it, even if the child does not like to take his or her medicine. • Tell guests about medicine safety. Ask houseguests and visitors to keep purses, bags, or coats that have medicines in them up and away and out of sight when they are visiting. • Be prepared in case of emergency. Program the poison control number into home and cell phones (1–800–222–1222). Beginning in the 1970s, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission required that most medicines have child–resistant packaging, a significant safety improvement that has saved hundreds of children’s lives. However, child–resistant caps must be used properly. The Up and Away and Out of Sight educational program is part of the larger public–private partnership, the PROTECT Initiative, aimed at reducing unintentional medication overdoses in children. The PROTECT partners are also working on innovative safety packaging specifically designed to limit the amount of medication that could be ingested by a child even if a child–resistant cap has not been replaced properly. A number of leading nonprescription drug companies have committed to incorporating product enhancements for pediatric liquid acetaminophen medicines. In addition, several over–the–counter medications are available in individual doses, which can limit the amount of medication that children could get into. “Even with improvements to packaging, no medication package can be 100 percent childproof,” warns Richard Dart, M.D., president of the American Association of Poison Control Centers. “Poison centers receive calls every day about young children getting into medicines without adult supervision; that’s why we encourage all parents and caregivers to follow these simple steps to ensure their child’s safety.” For more information on the Up and Away educational program, visit or in Spanish

For some, a ‘First Night’ of good behavior on New Year’s Eve

First Night Winchester Button

Improv for Kids at First Night Winchester.

By Jonathan Bennett Frederick County Report Well…another year in my rearview mirror. Almost. How to spend the final night of twenty-eleven. A bar, a friend’s house…different settings for boozy revelry, which is all fine and well, I guess…if I wanna spend the first morning of 2012 nursing an aversion to light and sound and eating Advil like they’re Pez. Being that self-defilement doesn’t fascinate me these days as much as, say, waking up with the sunrise instead of going to bed with it, a search for a less hijinks-centric, more civic-minded (but still rife with anecdotal potential) approach to celebration may be in order. So… Where I live is not far from the Old Town outdoor mall in Winchester; for affairs cultural and leisurely (or anything else, for that matter), it’s far enough that I feel like going there puts me ‘out of the house’ but close enough that a hasty return home for reasons benign or nefarious is a painless effort. And while Old Town provides a number of establishments catering to what I endearingly refer to as the ‘blotto crowd’ on New Year’s Eve, the Mall is also the setting for the 25th Annual First Night Winchester, a decidedly viceless alternative for those wishing to enjoy a familyfriendly, alcohol-free New Year’s celebration. A little background: First Night festivals are held in nearly one hundred cities and towns in twenty-six states (and counting)

across the country each New Year’s Eve, the first taking place in Boston in 1976. While First Night

is an incorporated brand with a centralized business model, its mission is to encourage each community planning a festival under the First Night banner to draw on local performers, artists, and events unique to the area. Established artists and teach-

Most people have made New Year’s resolutions at some point in their lives -- with varying degrees of success. The secret to making -and keeping -- a New Year’s resolution is to start thinking about it before New Year’s Eve. Be Realistic The surest way to fall short of your goal is for it to be unrealistic. Resolving to never eat your favorite food again is a set-up for failure. Set a goal that is attainable, such as avoiding that food more often than you do now. If your resolution is something like losing weight, do some research to see what a realistic, attainable goal would be. Choose Wisely Don’t decide on a resolution at the last minute on New Year’s Eve. It may help to make a list of possible resolutions and develop this list over time. Keep it with you and ask others to contribute ideas. You should know what your goal is well before December 31st arrives. Create a Plan To be successful, it helps to have clear steps to put into action. Write your resolution and plan down in a notebook or journal. Decide how you will deal with the temptation to backslide. This could include calling a friend for support, taking a walk around the block or simply thinking positively. Start your plan during the first few days of January to harness your motivation. Don’t expect overnight miracles. Resolutions are accomplished with a hundred tiny steps that happen throughout the year. You should think of aNew Year’s resolution as nothing more than a starting point and that developing positive habits will keep your plan moving forward. Talk About It Tell friends and family members who will be there to support your resolve to change yourself for the better. The best-case scenario is to find a friend or family member who has also made a New Year’s resolution and agree to motivate each other. Remain Flexible Obsessing over the occasional slip won’t help you achieve your goal. Do the best you can each day and keep moving forward. Expect that your plan can and will change. Sometimes even the goal itself will change. But most importantly, recognize partial successes at every step along the way. Experts say it takes about 21 days for a new activity, such as exercising, to become a habit, and six months for it to become part of your personality. Give it time and your new habits are sure to become second nature.

Planning is key to keeping New Year’s resolutions

then presented in the communities where they originated. The Old Town outdoor mall in Winchester lends itself to the atmosphere created by the First Night performers. For the holiday evening, this brick-and-cobblestone section of Loudon Street between Cork Street and Piccadilly Street will be the Renaissance fair-like epicenter of the celebration, while the surrounding streets just off the mall will be the venues for many of the performers. Among the musicians playing, mostly at various churches close to the mall, are nineteenyear-old jazz saxophone prodigy Demetrius “DJ” Turner; the Brass Five, a Dixieland/Swing ensemble; VocalPoint, an all-women a cappella singing group; and David LaFleur, an accomplished Appalachian musician, renowned for his mastery of stringed instruments like the guitar, dobro, and hammer dulcimer. Keeping children entertained is a must for many New Year’s revelers, so instead of dropping them off at a babysitter’s (frantically arranged at the last minute, usually), First Night Winchester is presenting programs geared toward the little ones. Michael Shwedick is a leading reptile wildlife educator bringing tropical lizards, boa constrictors and crocodiles (to name a few) to the Christ Episcopal Church. Lawrence the Magician works his sleight of hand at the same location; hopefully Shwedick’s Asian crocodile doesn’t do the same on Lawrence…also at the Episcopal Church (seems to be a happening place) will be Improv for Kids, in which children participate in comic sketches designed around music, dance, storytelling, and of course, improvisation. The best way to navigate the First Night scene is to get a First Night button, which gains you entry into all the performances,

All eyes on Iowa
and the media. And Texas governor Rick Perry, who showed some signs of a rebound from his earlier fall from grace, still has time to spend his large amounts of money to surprise everyone on caucus day. Additionally Newt Gingrich has become much more aggressive in recent days, breaking from his pledge to remain focused on a positive campaign on policy. Both of these men, even with their earlier problems, are skilled politicians who have a loyal following. With Michelle Bachmann and Rick Santorum seemingly headed to a bad night next Tuesday, it will likely come down to one of these four politicians, with Paul

By Jonathan Lucci Frecerick County Report The crucial judgment day embodied by the Iowa Caucus is now just a week away, and what is remarkable is that the most seasoned watchers and prognosticators of this remarkable political event have no idea what is going to happen. The winner of the Iowa Caucus does not always go on to win the Presidential nomination of their party, but as the first in the long series of caucuses and primaries this coming winter and spring it holds outsize importance. And this year, we have seen a long line of conservative heavyweights jump to the front of the line, only to fall by the wayside. Michelle Bachmann, Rick Perry, Herman Cain, Newt Gin-

grich, and now Ron Paul: each of these candidates has jumped to the front only to implode. And all the while, Mitt Romney has held steady as the favorite of the GOP establishment. The Iowa Caucus is an extremely unique event, and its differences from a primary election are necessary to understanding why more than money and name recognition matter here. While advertisement money is the leading expense and factor in a normal election, organization on the ground is key in Iowa. Iowa citizens don’t simply walk into a booth and cast their vote. They have to leave their homes on a cold January Tuesday evening and sit for a significant amount of time in a caucus site and consider

many different issues and candidates as a community. Its townhall feel means that a higher level of enthusiasm is necessary to get your voters to the polls, a large reason why candidates like Michelle Bachmann and Rick Santorum could surprise people despite their poor showings in the polls. Standing at the top of polls, when averaged, are Ron Paul and Mitt Romney. A recent Rasmussen poll showed Romney leading by 5 points. An Insider/Advantage poll showed Paul up by 6. And it appears a large swath of the Iowa electorate still remain open to changing their minds all the way up to the moment when they head to the caucus. This is what accounts for the severe confusion among political experts

and Romney in the strongest position. Romney’s polling position has held steady throughout a flurry of negative campaigning, and Paul’s supporters are extremely enthusiastic and reliable. However, a win by Ron Paul is not as bad for Romney as it may seem. If he places second behind Paul, it could be as good as a win. Paul is seen by vast swaths of the electorate as unelectable because of his policy ideas that take small government to what some consider an irrational length. Even moderate Republicans seem terrified that Paul could hand the general election to Obama on a silver platter. For this reason Paul would not likely be able to sustain a long war of attrition against the establishment backed Romney, but his Iowa win would cut off the other more dangerous candidates at their knees. Therefore, it appears its more than likely that Romney will either be celebrating a victory next Tuesday or consider himself in a

Changes to Mortgage Rules Bring Out Scammers
December 1, 2011 –Washington, DC - Starting today, some homeowners who are “under water” with their mortgages can refinance under the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP), however; the Better Business Bureau (BBB) is warning consumers that banks and mortgage companies aren’t the only ones gearing up for the rush of applications. “Whenever there is a new or updated government program that may be a bit confusing, scammers come out of the woodwork to take advantage of that confusion,” said Edward Johnson, President & CEO of the local BBB. “There are already hundreds of websites claiming to be able to help homeowners through the HARP process, but many of them are rip-offs and scams.” In addition to the bogus web sites, the BBB warns consumers to be on the guard for scam offers that come by way of direct mail, email and telemarketing. The BBB is warning all homeowners who are thinking of applying for a HARP refinance to: Deal directly with your lender first and never make payments to anyone other than your lender. Don’t pay upfront fees to anyone who promises to provide counseling, take care of the paperwork for you, or stop the foreclosure process. Be wary of anyone who tells you not to contact your lender, a lawyer or a credit counselor, or who asks for payment by cashier’s check or wire transfer. Never sign over your deed to anyone, or allow yourself to be pressured into signing something you don’t understand. Be especially careful of look-alike and sound-alike websites. Find out if you qualify by going to or by calling the Homeowner’s HOPE Hotline at 1-888-995-HOPE (4673) to speak to a HUD-approved housing counselor for free. Report scams to BBB and the FTC. The changes to the HARP program were announced by President Obama in October to allow homeowners to refinance at lower interest rates, even if their home is currently worth less than their mortgage. The new HARP rules apply to homeowners who are current on their payments and whose loans are backed by either FannieMae or FreddieMac. Some lenders will begin accepting applications as early as today, although many will take a few weeks or even a few months to roll out the program. More than one million borrowers are expected to apply for the program, according to the Federal Housing Finance Agency, which oversees the two major mortgage lending programs.

BBB Warns Homeowners:

Frederick County Public Schools now offering ads on division websites
Frederick County Public Schools is making a limited amount of advertising space available on its redesigned school websites. The advertising space is available on the school division’s homepage, each individual school homepage and the athletic Web pages for James Wood, Millbrook and Sherando High Schools. Coordinator of Policy, Records Management and Communications Steve Edwards says, “After learning about other school divisions who have successfully built new partnerships and generated revenues by offering advertising on their websites, we researched the idea and determined it was a concept worth pursuing. In September of 2010, the School Board adopted a commercial advertising policy which states that the Board recognizes the importance of fostering relationships with community groups and individuals in order to enhance educational and extracurricular opportunities for students and to raise alternative revenues to supplement the school division’s educational and extracurricular programs. After more than a year of work, we’re now in a position to offer advertising space on our redesigned websites.” Schools Superintendent David Sovine says, “The ad space being offered on our Web pages will serve as a means for the school division to enhance and build new relationships with businesses and individuals in our community. All of the revenues generated will go back into programs directly impacting students. Half of the funds raised will be used by the Information Technology Department to support the implementation of the Division Educational Technology Plan. The other half will be deposited into the school activity fund of the school on whose website the advertisement appears. If we sell all of the ad space that we have identified, this initiative would generate nearly $205,000 annually.” Edwards says, “Our Web pages offer a great opportunity for businesses to promote their goods and services while supporting our schools and students. By placing an ad on our websites, businesses can maximize their marketing dollars and support our schools students philanthropically as well. The school division’s homepage was viewed nearly 700,000 times last year which means advertisers will get tremendous exposure. It’s a win-win situation for advertisers, our schools and students.” Edwards adds, “We will only accept ads which are appropriate for the school community. Products and services that are inconsistent with the curriculum or educational mission of Frederick County Public Schools will not be allowed.” Anyone interested in learning more about advertising on the Frederick County Public Schools’ websites may contact Edwards at 540-662-3888 x88235 or at [email protected]

Need to make home repairs or paint your living room but don’t want to be up on a ladder anymore? Hire someone to help with the stipulation that you’ll do part of the work. Want to volunteer but don’t know how to start? Call the senior center or the humane society and tell them you have a free morning every week. They’ll put you to work! Are your goals more along the lines of health and fitness? Consult your doctor and ask for advice. Perhaps he can recommend a local seniors exercise program. Reaching our goals is possible!

Reaching Our Goals
Where do you want to be a year from now? Are there goals you’d like to accomplish in 2012 but don’t feel they’re possible? Far too many of us perceive there are limits that hold us back as we get older. Some of those limits are surmountable, however, with a little analyzing and planning. Start by writing down your goals for 2012. Be specific. Then look at what might be holding you back. Explore the ways you can make it happen. Do you like museums and theater but can’t afford the fees? Call and ask if there are discounts that aren’t advertised, senior discounts or “pay what you can” matinees. Do you want to read more books this year? If your vision is not what it was, make an eye appointment. Look for those

Those who study such things say that Americans’ favorite T-shirt color is white, followed by blue and black. Thought for the Day: “If you have an important point, don’t try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time -- a tremendous whack.” -Winston Churchill
