Niacin Clinical Trial Halted
The headlines were a bit scary: Niacin Trial Too Risky to Go On. If your doctor has had you on prescription-level niacin (vitamin B-3), this “news” might have caused you concern. Back in 005, a long-term clinical trial was begun for the purpose of studying whether raising the good cholesterol (HDL) in patients with a history of cardiovascular disease could reduce the rate of more cardiovascular events. They used niacin to regulate cholesterol. Those in the study received “simvastatin” and either a high-dose niacin or a placebo. The study was stopped because there was no additional benefit between simvastatin plus niacin, versus simvastatin alone. There was, however, a very tiny increase in the number of ischemic strokes in the group that included the

niacin. What the scary headlines failed to mention was that the patients who’d been in the niacin group had stopped taking that niacin two months to four years prior. The Food and Drug Administration concluded, in its press release, that it was “unclear” whether the niacin had anything to do with the strokes. The National Institutes of Health had its own press release that indicated it had stopped the study because, as the FDA said, niacin didn’t reduce the number of cardiovascular events and continuing the trial wouldn’t have offered any benefits. The NIH is going back to the drawing board in its hunt to find ways to manage cholesterol levels. If your doctor has you on prescription-level niacin and you’re worried, give him or her a call to get advice. We shouldn’t self-diagnose or make medical decisions based on news headlines, especially when headlines often go for the drama factor.

Chris Blethen, a 37 year old cancer survivor, is riding horses from Arlington, Texas to Manhattan, New York, and back again, to raise money and awareness for children battling cancer. Cowboy Chris is a horse trainer, who volunteers for Heroes for Children (HeroesforChildren.org). Heroes for Children was founded by two Mothers, Larissa Linton and Jenny Scott, who each lost a very young daughter to cancer. After suffering through their daughter’s illnesses, and watching those around them suffer, the Moms united to raise funds to help other families during their time of crises. The non-profit organization raises funds to help individual families cope, while a child between the ages of 0 - years of age is battling cancer. The money raised goes directly to the family, and can be used in whatever way the family decides, whether it be to pay the mortgage, the electric bill, or to buy a birthday present.

Walking through local history

STEPHENS CITY — Tourguide Butch Fravel led eager participants throughout downtown Stephens City during a guided historical Civil War walking tour Saturday, June 5. Over a dozen individuals had filled the Newtown History Center/ Museum, a Virginia Historic Landmark that is centrally located on Main Street in downtown Stephens City, by the scheduled start time of 10:30 a.m. The building, which was originally built as a tavern in the late 1800s, offers its patrons a rare and intimate look into the past via many exquisitely preserved historical artifacts that have been uncovered throughout the years following the Civil War. Some artifacts within the Newtown History Center even predate the Civil War, which is impressive due to the sheer amount of conflict and destruction that the Shenandoah Valley experienced throughout the tumultuous years of the Civil War. Wayne Eldred, Manager of Collections & Programs at the Newtown History Center, advised that in addition to the guided walking tour that is provided to those interested for a conservative fee of $5.00 on the 4th Saturdays of the month, visitors can also make a trip to the museum during its normal operating hours of 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., Tuesdays through Saturdays, and 1:00-5:00 p.m. Sundays and take a self-tour at their own speed and convenience. The guided Civil War walking tour itself began as the guide gathered tour group participants onto the porch of the historic landmark, where he announced that it was on this very porch that the infamous Stonewall Jackson had allegedly given one of his many passionate political speeches nearly a century and a half ago. Fravel continued his introduction by giving members of the tour group some additional background information on the historic town of Stephens City, which was known earlier in history either as Newtown or Stephensburg. He asserted that his objective was to educate the group’s members on some of the families and individuals that laid the major foundations for what today has become known as Stephens City. “It’s not the battles; It’s not the leaders,” said Fravel. “It’s the stories

By Doug Walp Frederick County Report WINCHESTER — Frederick County Public School Board officials convened Tuesday to address every-day procedures, new policy implementations and the distribution of resources for Frederick County’s public schools. The meeting was held at its normal location, the FCPS administration building, and was open to the public beginning at approximately 7 p.m. Officials began the meeting by initiating a commentary based on some of the recent faculty and board staff transitions that have or will have occurred within the FCPS in the coming months. Among these transitions were the additions of new principals due to the retirement of incumbent James Wood Middle School principal Terri Miller and Frederick County Middle School’s Sharon Clark, who will be moving into a new administrative position with FCPS. The Board also recognized a new Assistant Director of Buildings and Grounds. Superintendant Patricia Taylor began her report on a somber note by expressing her condolences for the 8-year old second grade student of Red Bud Elementary, Alex

Crim, who recently lost his life in a tragic accident. She then progressed to discuss what she believed contributed to what she believed was a very successful school year in its overall entirety, of course aside from the aforementioned tragedy. Taylor recounted her thoughts on how the school year in general seemed to pass by quicker than normal, and how the conclusion of this year was also seemed to be inexplicably smooth compared to past years. She went on to voice her satisfaction with the recent groundbreaking for the new transportation center that will serve both the FC Public Schools as well as the local government.

Additionally, she reported to the Board about the some of the new technological implementations that would be occurring imminently within the FCPS system. The new equipment, which includes new laptop and projector installations, will eventually provide “more efficient operation” in Frederick County Public Schools according to the superintendent. After the Superintendant’s report, the Board proceeded to address the prevalent issues facing the local county school system. One of the first measures the Board completed was the approval of new bylaws for the Gifted Advisory Committee. They would also later approve a newly adopted Local Plan for the Education of the Gifted, which will run through 017. Furthermore, the Board considered and also eventually approved multiple applications corresponding to the continued implementation of the No Child Left Behind Act of 001. This Act, which allows for educational standards measurement and positive academic reform, has been implemented successfully in public schools all across the United States. The approval of new textbooks for vari-

ous FCPS courses was also on the Board’s agenda. Members unanimously approved four new textbooks into the curriculum which included two Advanced Placement classes, World History and Statistics, as well as a new textbook for Physics I and a new elementary math textbook. Another notable measure taken by Board members during their second meeting of the month was the approval of supplementary concussion guidelines for FCPS’s student athletes. The newly accepted procedures were materialized in an effort to provide the highest level of safety for high school sports participants trying to return to action after suffering a concussion. The final piece of legislation approved by Board members allowed for the purchase of five new 77-passenger school buses in order to efficiently serve students of Frederick County’s public schools. After all official business was completed, some pent up emotions within members of the Board were finally released. The administrative meeting would be Patricia Taylor’s final meeting as the superintendent of Frederick County’s public schools, and the other members of the Board took the opportunity to express their gracious appreciation for her tireless service and countless sacrifices with a standing ovation for the beloved superintendant of FCPS. Superintendant Taylor’s retirement will be official effective June 30, when she will be relieved by the new FCPS superintendant, Dr. David T. Sovine.

Courts/Crime

By Edward Johnson Better Business Bureau

S

afeguarding your child is the number one responsibility of any parent. Doing so requires vigilance and there are many things your kids need to know. In this day and age, it is not easy. The complexity of protecting your child goes well beyond scraped knees or a first crush. The internet with all its advantages also comes with a dark side. If you think the internet is relatively safe and harmless, think again for predators and thieves abound. Take for instance identity theft. Hundreds of online businesses are finding inactive Social Security numbers online –most of which are assigned to children under the age of 18 who have not started using them yet - and selling them under different names to help people establish fake credit. The scheme may lead to significant debts for children that might be almost impossible to pay off. The Better Business Bureau (BBB) is warning parents to be on the lookout for the signs that point to their child’s identity being compromised or stolen. For adults, last year alone, 8.1 million Americans became victims of ID theft, resulting in the loss of $37 billion, according to a 011 report from Javelin Strategy and Research. While this number is extraordinary high, NBC TODAY reports that it becomes harder to define how many children are actually affected by identity theft because of the fact that

H A R R I S O N BU RG — Wi n chester’s former Commonwealth Attorney, Paul Hampton Thomson, 56, plead guilty the day before his trail was set to begin. His guilty plea was entered for the charges of tampering with evidence, and witnesses, obstructing justice and possession of cocaine; five of the eight criminal charges filed against him earlier this year. He entered into a plea agreement and plead guilty to two counts of tampering with evidence, two counts of witness tampering, and one count of possession of cocaine. The agreement stipulates that Thomson has to serve

38 months in a federal prison, and pay a fine between $7,500 and $75,000 as well as restitution to Melissa Roberts in the total of $5,000. “Obstruction of justice is a crime against the criminal justice

system,” US Attorney Timothy J. Heaphy said. “Mr. Thomson attempted to cheat that system by encouraging the destruction of evidence, and coaching witnesses to lie about his drug abuse.” Thomson admitted to possessing cocaine in May 010, and that he took actions to conceal that fact from law enforcement officials. In late 010, and again in early 011 Thomson traveled to Rockingham County Jail to instruct one of his cocaine suppliers to lie to federal investigators.

of how the individuals survived in this town.” He went on to explain that while the heart of downtown Stephens City is not necessarily notorious for seeing some of the more wide-scale military engagements that occurred in other areas throughout the Shenandoah Valley, it still had to deal with the resulting aftermath of fierce local conflicts as well as the dividing turmoil that affected many families during this time period. Fravel was able to provide the tour group with many examples and historical accounts of families being torn apart because the town was constantly changing hands between Confederate and Union forces, making it a microcosm of many similar towns throughout the Shenandoah Valley. The attentive tour participants were the beneficiaries of plentiful, intricate stories of the founding families of Stephens City, provided by the dedicated tour guide Fravel, who is also the President of the Board of Directors of the Stone House Foundation, a non-profit organization that has historically sought to engage local residents of their town’s past heritage. Fravel concluded by explaining that while Stephen City’s history is not necessarily that unique in relation to some of the other towns that were facing similar circumstances in the chaotic Shenandoah Valley at the time, the vast amount of primary sources, historic artifacts and other resources have ultimately contributed to one of the most accurate historical reconstructions of what life was really like for people living in a town like Newtown during the Civil War and its surrounding periods. Interested participants can learn more about donation or membership opportunities, or to schedule special tours by contacting the Newtown History Center through e-mail at [email protected], or by phone at (540) – 869 – 1700.

Tour guide Butch Fravel began the introduction of the guided walking tour from the front porch of the Newtown History Center, where he said it is alleged that Stonewall Jackson once gave a political speech. Tour guide Fravel recalls the history of Stephens City’s landmarks for the engaged tour group members.

Civil War

T

he Virginia Sesquicentennial of the American Civil War Commission and the Library of Virginia have partnered to create a state-wide online collection of original Civil War manuscripts that still remain in private hands. The Civil War 150 Legacy project: Document Digitization and Access focuses on manuscript materials created during the period 1859-1867 that reflect social, political, military, business and religious life in Virginia during the period of the Civil War and the early period of Reconstruction. Citizens are encouraged to bring original family materials to be scanned and included in the Project. Scanned materials will be made available on the web via the Library of Virginia web site and the Virginia Sesquicentennial of the American Civil War Commission web site. This is a unique opportunity for citizens to share original family Civil War documents and photographs with a wider audience – without giving up ownership or any rights to those original

materials. By sharing these archival materials, and adding to the resources available to students, educators, researchers, and the wider public, participants help broaden the understanding of the Civil War era – and, most importantly, the understanding of the experiences of the individuals who lived through those years. Participants are asked to call 54054-136 to schedule an appointment on July 9-30 to bring their Civil War photos, letters, diaries, and other materials to the Visitors Center to be scanned. (This project is for two-dimensional materials only; three-dimensional artifacts cannot be scanned.) Library of Virginia personnel will scan the documents, talk with the owners, and can also give advice about the care and preservation of the materials. Once the scanning is finished, owners will take their documents home with them. To schedule a scanning appointment, or for more information, please call the Winchester-Frederick County Visitors Center at 540-54-136.

most cases go undiscovered for years. However, an identity theft monitoring company, Debix, found an alarming 4,000 cases of tainted identities, out of only 40,000 children. It’s terrifying to think that your child’s identity could be comprised for the sole reason that they have a clean record. It is extremely important that parents take the necessary precautions to ensure the safety of their child’s precious and helpless identity. The BBB urges parents to follow these important steps to secure their child’s identity: Be aware of how to obtain your child’s credit report. Getting access to your child’s records is actually a different process than obtaining your own. Your child’s report cannot be obtained using the congressionally mandated free credit report website ( HYPERLINK “http://annualcreditreport.com/” http://AnnualCreditReport.com) when under the age of 13 and even sometimes for children ages 14 to 18. For parents with children under the age of 13, the easiest way to obtain your child’s

records is through Trans Union. According to NBC TODAY, if Trans Union says there is no report, odds are good that your child is in the clear. But if there is a report — or you have a specific reason to believe your child is a victim — you’ll want to follow up with the nation’s other two major credit bureaus — Experian and Equifax — and get a report from them, too. Recognize the signs of trouble. Watch out for red flags that indicate there might be a problem, such as your son or daughter receiving pre-approved credit card offers or calls from collection agencies. Know what to do if you suspect that your child has fallen victim. According to the FTC, every parent should check their child’s credit report on their 16th birthday. It’s not good to check it too often since numerous inquiries can hurt a credit score, but checking at age 16 then leaves sufficient time to fix errors and activity before their child goes off to college and tries to obtain financial aid. If suspicious activity arises, parents must contact all three credit bureaus and request a report immediately. From there depending on your state’s credit freeze rule, placing a credit freeze should be considered. Have “the talk” with your kids. It’s a fact, get used to it, your child is growing up in a connected world. Texting, facebook and browsing the internet are not just a means of communicating and finding information, it is their world. Knowing how to act and what sort of information they should not share is as important as locking the front door at night. Help them to choose their friends in real life and online, wisely. Walk-Ins Edward Johnson is president & CEO of the Better Business Bureau serving the greater metro Washington, D.C. region.

ecretar y of Technology Jim Duffey announced the launch of the revamped Virginia.gov, Virginia’s official state government website. The new site, www.virginia.gov, includes an updated design focusing on new information delivery and Web interface tools. The functional improvements and content additions keep pace

S

with changing social and Web browsing habits and the evolving role of citizen interaction with government. The new site offers more social media interaction, “robust” search capabilities, improved listing and capability to search state online services, enhanced mapping, and the ability to detect where the user is connected to the internet, and its very own mobile application. “Technology is a very important component of Governor McDonnell’s administration and is essential for a transparent and ‘citizen-centric’ government,” said Sec. Duffey. “It is key that citizens are able to engage the Commonwealth at anytime, and from any place.” The state web portal is produced and managed for the Commonwealth through a contractual relationship established between the Virginia Information Technologies Agency (VITA) and Virginia Interactive, LLC., a subsidiary of NIC. Check out virginia.gov to see the improvements, changes, and connectivity capabilities.

Buying Your First Computer
Even in this high-tech world, there are still many people who are just now buying their first computer. The process doesn’t have to be intimidating. Your first step is to decide what you want the computer for, and how much you have to spend. Here are some tips to get you started: Make your first purchase from a store, not a private individual, for two reasons: You’ll get a warranty, and if something should go wrong, a call to the store often will get you a fast and easy answer. Your best bet is to shop at various computer stores and take notes. Tell the store techs what you’ll be using the computer for: email, games, a small business, photograph storage, writing and correspondence, Internet. They’ll be able to guide you to a computer that will handle what you want it to do. After you buy, before you leave the store, take the boxed-up computer to the store’s repair area and have virus protection installed. Either have the techs start up any pre-installed software and pay for the next year, or have them install a different type. You’ll

want to make sure your new computer is fully covered before you even get it home. If you have children or teens in the house, or anyone who is likely to change settings or install unwanted software on your new computer, have the store techs set up a BIOS password. That way no one but you will be able to start the machine. If finances make for a difficult decision — whether to buy a better computer and no printer, or a lesser computer along with a printer — hold off on the printer, as well as any other peripherals. Buy the best computer you can afford. Printers, scanners, oversize monitors, upgraded speakers and lots of software can be purchased one at a time later, as you learn more about what you need and find it on sale. If the store has in-store credit, beware being talked into buying more computer than you’d planned on. Look carefully at the fine print on the agreement, especially the interest rate. If you haven’t done it already, take a computer class. You don’t want to discover in two years that your computer has capabilities you never knew about.
