Frederick County Report
Summers in a presidential election
year are usually thought of as a quiet
period in between the civil wars of
primaries and the time after Labor
Day when most voters truly focus
in on the choices for the fall. Tis
summer, in our world of 24 hour
news coverage and non-stop poll-
ing, neither Governor Romney nor
President Obama have taken much
of a break. Still, with the partys’
nominating conventions still several
weeks of and with plenty of time to
analyze the inevitable showdown at
the national level, it is a good time to
take a look at the races that will ap-
pear a little farther down the ballot
here in northwestern Virginia.
Te Senate race between former
governor Tim Kaine and former US
senator George Allen continues to be
almost impossible to predict, as the
numbers now look almost identical
to the numbers as they existed six
months ago. A brand new CBS/New
York Times/Quinnipiac survey puts
Democrat Kaine ahead by 2 points
over Allen with a 48 to 46 mar-
gin. Te same poll found President
Obama leading Governor Romney 49
to 45. After barrages by presidential
campaigns, both Senate campaigns,
both national parties and a myriad of
outside groups the race is still dead-
locked. Tis reality, at both the sen-
ate and presidential level seems to
indicate that despite the controversy
over the shocking amount of money
being spent on these elections, the
race remains a toss-up. Wh i l e
neither side is likely to decrease their
spending here in Virginia, it is clear
that money alone is simply not mov-
ing the numbers much at all.
While both campaigns will con-
tinue to target undecided voters with
messaging it seems evident that the
race will be so close on Election Day
that it will be largely a turnout battle
and both senate campaigns have lim-
its to how much they can get away
from the men at the top of the ballot.
With a small sliver of undecided vot-
ers left, it is likely that the unfavor-
able opinion of Governor Romney
being seen among independent vot-
ers in most polls can only hurt Al-
len. In the same way though, Kaine
likely has a certain ceiling keeping
his numbers down because of his ties
to a President seen as weak on the
number one issue facing voters, the
While the senate race is still as dif-
fcult to predict as the presidential
election, the campaign for the 10th
Congressional district will require
a bigger surprise to upend expecta-
tions. While Northern Virginia has
famously become dramatically more
fertile ground for Democrats in re-
cent years (i.e Obama 2008), those
efects are not necessarily enough
to unseat long-time Congressman
Frank Wolf. Democratic candidate
and former federal prosecutor Kris-
tin Cabral does have a formidable re-
sume but lags behind the Congress-
man in fundraising and is facing the
unenviable task of unseating a popu-
lar incumbent. In a political climate
that is toxic for political insiders and
long-time incumbents like Congress-
man Wolf, running for his 17th term,
Cabral does have an opportunity to
paint herself as independent reform-
er. Tat message has been front and
center so far for the challenger. Yet
while the demographics of this region
are certainly undergoing quite a bit of
change—and the Democratic base is
likely to be stoked by the President’s
name at the top of the ballot—it will
take quite a bit to topple Wolf who
has served in congress since 1981.
Both the local senate and con-
gressional campaigns are likely to
heat up even further as the fall ap-
proaches and both will certainly hit
the airwaves and launch turnout op-
erations. Yet none of the races down
the ballot here in northern Virginia
can escape the magnetic pull of the
top of the ballot. For better or worse,
the battle between Governor Rom-
ney and President Obama will have
as much to say about the results of
these other races as the participants
State and local candidates are battling in their own races while dealing with
the unpredictable impact of the presidential campaign. From left are (U.S. Sen-
ate candidates) former Gov. Tim Kaine (D), former Sen. George Allen (R), 10th
District Rep. Frank Wolf (R) and former federal prosecutor Kristin Cabral (candi-
dates for the House.)

Frederick County Report
Some folks choose the oddest plac-
es to take a vacation.
Like our neighbors, Carol and
Charlie Goddard of Ashby Sta-
tion Road in Rockland. Tey picked
Deadwood, South Dakota.
“Deadwood!” I exclaimed. “When
you get back, let me know what you
found there and if you enjoyed it.”
Tis week, Carol stopped by and
told me “we had the best darned
vacation we ever had” which isn’t
saying a whole lot when you stop to
think about it because Charlie usu-
ally prefers to stay close to home.
Anyway, joined by Carol’s brother,
Dale Williamson, of they few to
Rapid City, Iowa, rented a car and
drove south to Deadwood where
“Wild Bill” Hickock once ruled the
roost and “Calamity Jane” is buried.
Tis was a town wider open than
Front Royal in its heyday (in the
1800s). In fact, according to Carol,
there’s slot machines and such in al-
most every public place (though with
a population of about 1,000 there
aren’t many public places) and the
brothels disappeared less than 30
years ago.
Te Chamber of Commerce (or
somebody) has gussied up the one-
horse, one-street town a bit, and gun
battles are a thing of the past. At this
time of year, temperatures exceed the
100s in Deadwood and thereabouts
but the a/c rental got them around
comfortably, allowing Carol to expe-
rience one of the great sights of her
life. “We were driving around a long
curve in the road when, right before
us was Mt. Rushmore. – My good-
ness, I’d seen pictures of Rushmore
but in reality it really is unbelievable,”
Carol said of the four U.S. presidents’
faces carved into solid rock (we know
you can name them).
On another road trip through
the “Badlands”, the trio saw another
carving in another mountain, an un-
fnished image of legendary Ameri-
can Indian Chief Crazy Horse, which
was begun in 1948 but never fnished
despite eforts of the late sculptor’s
daughter to complete the project de-
cades later.
For Carol and Dale, photographers
both, the wildlife, including bufalo,
prairie dogs, bears, elk, burros and
deer, was a delight.
A constant challenge was eating --
there’s a dearth of restaurants. Also,
Carol advises it’s educational but not
a place you’d want kids tagging along
(nothing much for them to do) but
do take along your national parks
passport that gets you on to Skyline
Drive (or your Golden Age passport
if you’re old enough!). Since most of
this part of our country is national
park, the passports save money, even
on this quite afordable vacation.
“It was a trip we’ll never forget,”
concluded Carol Goddard, adding
(sotto voce): “At least it got Charlie
outta town!).
Responding to our managing ed-
itor’s question, Carol said, “We had
already picked the Mt. Rushmore
area before “Deadwood” (the graphic
wild west TV series) came on. But I
must say it brought more fun to the
trip, trying to picture some of the
facts that the program brought out.

Frederick County Report
As the election season rapidly ap-
proaches and the eyes of the nation
fall heavily on our corner of Virginia,
our “swing state” has found itself at
the center of a controversy that is
also swirling in several other battle-
ground states. It is an issue that runs
largely along familiar partisan rifts
and has both sides claiming the mor-
al high ground.
New laws in Virginia and other
states that seek to tamp down on vot-
er fraud by requiring more rigorous
identifcation procedures at the polls
have caused a frestorm among vot-
ing rights advocates. Opponents of
the laws fear that they will turn away
large numbers of voters, with a par-
ticular prejudice against minorities,
lower income voters and the elderly.
Proponents of the stricter require-
ments believe that the laws are nec-
essary to prevent fraud from swaying
elections and preserving the very
right to vote that many opponents
of the laws claim to be defending.
Needless to say, both sides seem con-
vinced that the other is completely
duplicitous and attempting to fx the
Preventing fraud and increasing
eligible voter participation is im-
mensely important in any election,
regardless of how close the margin is
likely to be. However, it is impossible
to pretend that the controversy here
in Virginia does not take on a larger
signifcance because of the very high
likelihood that this state’s electoral
votes will decide the next occupant of
the White House. With the margin
likely to be so small, any large num-
bers of voters turned away will likely
be enough to cause a massive contro-
versy regardless of the outcome.
Te fact that Virginia’s Republican
governor and legislature passed these
laws while other GOP governors
have done similar things in other
battleground states has only ampli-
fed the belief among Democrats that
the GOP is pulling out all the stops
to win in 2012. It does seem unlikely
that there would have been such a
coordinated movement among new
Republican governors in these states
if there weren’t the likelihood that it
would beneft the Republican candi-
dates this fall. Te defenders of these
voter ID laws correctly point out that
there are indeed cases of voter fraud
and it is the duty of state authorities
to prevent it. However, it does take
a particularly naïve view of electoral
politics to think that these laws were
all passed purely out of desire to pro-
tect the voting rights of Americans.
Tis is not meant to put the blame
on Republicans as Republicans. To
the contrary, if the Democrats had
controlled the governor’s mansions
and legislatures of these battle-
ground states it is likely they would
have looked for similar methods to
increase their chances of winning.
Te very fact that the majority party
after a census largely controls the
redistricting of congressional seats
is proof that this kind of political
maneuvering is far from new. Te
Republican Party has used its power
in certain states to put more restric-
tions on voting, something that will
likely beneft them politically. Tis
should not be a major surprise in
today’s political environment.
Te problem is not the Republican
or the Democratic Party in them-
selves. It is in the do-whatever-it-
takes attitude that so casually exists
in both party’s political organiza-
tions. While this problem has cer-
tainly always existed in politics and
is nothing new, it has certainly be-
come amplifed in recent years. Te
controversy over these voter ID laws
says more about the shallowness of
our national political debate than it
does about the purity of either party’s
motivations. Tat very shallowness
may explain the disillusionment that
so many Americans feel with both
choices in this election.

Business Roundup: Good eats, career training and a backpack for the toughest of men
By Carol Ballard
Frederick County Report
While the economic downturn
is alive and well in our area, you
wouldn’t know it by looking at three
local entrepreneurs we met.
In this issue’s business roundup
we visit a new Asian restaurant that
is taking southern Frederick County
by storm, a beauty salon that is look-
ing to train the next generation of
cosmetologists and a Front Royal
man who, after an exhaustive search
for the perfect backpack turned up
dry, decided to invent his own.
China House of Stephens City
Junhua Yang and his family have
brought the good taste of southern
mainland Chinese cuisine to Ste-
phens City with the opening of Chi-
na House.
“I have 25 years’ experience and
can cook a variety of styles, including
Tai, Korean, Japanese, but I special-
ize in Chinese cuisine, specifcally
Cantonese, Szechuan and Hunan,”
said Junhua.
On the day I visited, the family was
welcoming and friendly and willing
to share some of their history in the
clean, inviting restaurant.
“Junhua always had an interest in
cooking, he thought it was fun and
liked to cook in China. He learned
a lot from his mother before gain-
ing his certifcation from a Chefs’
College in China,” said Junhua’s wife
Tey moved here from New York
City seven years ago to Winchester,
and now own fve restaurants in this
area and have seven family members
working in the restaurant, cooking,
serving, cleaning up, making deliv-
eries and taking care of customers.
Tey said that they, as parents, want
to train their children how to serve,
and be a part of the community.
“Tey want to give us some expe-
rience for college, to meet the world,”
added their son. But their 12-year-old
daughter, also named Lilly, said she’s
more interested in music than cook-
ing. She plays the fute and wants to
be a concert performer someday.
Teir customers are happy that the
family has located here and they’ve
received a lot of praise from people
who tell them their food is excellent
and comment on how fresh it is. Lilly
said that one of their women custom-
ers called and told them, “Your food
is the best in the Tri-state area.”
Teir emphasis is on serving the
freshest local ingredients and they
do not use MSG. (Monosodium
glutamate, a common food additive
that can cause headaches and other

specializes in Chinese cuisine, specifcally Canton-
ese, Szechuan and Hunan.

“Te dishes are simple, fresh and
traditional,” says Junhua.
A note on their menu states in
part that, “We use the fnest qual-
ity chicken, pork, beef, seafood and
fresh vegetables, and all are prepared
in our kitchen. We de-bone and trim
away all visible fats and skin, and
prepare with plenty of fresh vegeta-
bles. All dishes are cooked very low
in vegetable oil and salt, so the re-
sult… high in fber, low in fat and
salt—because we care.”
As a gesture of hospitality, Junhua
ofered to make a generous sample of
the tofu and mixed vegetables with
steamed rice for me. And their loyal
customers were right, the dish was
very fresh and tasty, and the rice had
an exceptional texture.
Te couple says that they do a lot
of deliveries to their loyal clientele,
who keep calling back for more.

and we like Virginia,” answered Jun-
hua, when asked why they moved

Also their open enrollment policy
means that potential students can
join at any time and be enrolled full-
time or part-time. To be eligible, one
should be at least 16 years old.
“So far we have two recent high
school graduates and a Lord Fairfax
Community College student,” she
And a big bonus for clients is that
they can ask for students to work
on their hair and will get student
rates for cuts and color, which are
far below the usual rates. Also, she
emphasized that a supervisor will be
standing by.
“Just walk into the salon and ask
for student services. We welcome
walk-ins,” Toni said.
Students started practicing on cli-
ents this month, and will go through
three phases, which include: theory
in the classroom; doing shampoos
and graduating to blow-drying,
comb-outs, fat irons, roller sets.
At times they will practice on man-
nequins until clients come along. If
they fnd a willing friend, they may
invite them to practice on
Instructors will be showing stu-
dents how to do manicures, pedi-
cures, hairdressing, make-up,
weaves, extensions, curly hair tech-
niques and management, and how to
style ethnic hair.
“Tey’ll do everything across the
board. My goal is to keep up with
current trends, colors and to teach
hair dressing which suits a person’s
face, taste, and lifestyle. “A person
shouldn’t have to get up in the morn-
ing and face having to do a big hair-
style,” she said.
Toni proudly claims that the new
school’s faculty is professional, and
the facility is well-equipped with the
products and tools needed to pursue
an exciting career in beauty care.
Toni believes that beauty is in ev-
eryone, but not everyone sees it in
themselves, and when people leave
her salon, they feel beautiful. Tis is
what she intends to help her students
bring out in their clients as well.

Necessity is the mother of invention. Aaron Tweedie
of Front Royal said he looked around for the perfect
durable pack and couldn’t fnd one. So he invented
his own.
Street Paving on N. Kent to Begin August 10th
Te City of Winchester will be performing street paving on N. Kent
Street between Baker Street and Beau Street on Friday, August 10 and
Monday, August 13 (weather permitting).
In order to complete the work, trafc will be reduced to one north-
bound lane on Kent Street in this area. Southbound trafc on Kent
Street will be detoured at Beau Street to Smithfeld. Northbound trafc
on Kent Street will not be afected.
Te City apologizes for any inconvenience this work may create and
thanks everyone for their patience and cooperation.

And its inventor, Front Royal’s
Aaron Tweedie, who has a degree in
Business Administration and Mar-
keting from Lord Fairfax Commu-
nity College, James Madison Univer-
sity and Old Dominion University,
invented it especially for what he
calls “the woefully unprepared” men
in the world.
“My Mission Statement and goal is
to make men more prepared-like boy
scouts-so they don’t have to depend
on their wives or girlfriends to carry
their stuf. It will become the indus-
try standard for men’s carry bags. It’s
durable, masculine, and utilitarian,”
said 32-year-old Aaron.
He designed it for the ordinary
guy-like mechanics, building con-
tractors, college students, really any-
one who needs to carry things-and
who don’t carry briefcases.
Te bandolier-style strap is easily
detachable with heavy-duty Velcro
and a quick-release clasp. Also, it’s
made of heavy-duty canvas, is wash-
able and rugged.
“Guys are rough on things.” he
And, the exterior-multiple utility
pockets are made to keep things like
wallets, business cards, pens, i-Pods,
Kindles, small PCs, and change close
to the body to keep them safe and
easily accessible. Tere’s a cell phone
pocket on the chest and a unique
drink pocket (patent pending) that
has embedded magnets and zippers
and collapses magically when not in
He said the idea came to him be-
cause as a contractor he had to carry
a lot of stuf, too much to ft into
his pockets and not enough to fll a
“I was sure not going to carry a
purse,” he asserted.
A few years back, someone gave
him a cheap promotional carry bag,
but it kept breaking and he went
through three or four. After looking
around for something more durable,
he realized that there was a niche to
be flled.
“No other product addresses that
need, so I told myself I’d have to de-
sign and make it myself.
So, being the energetic, inventive,
and entrepreneurial person that he
is, after a long and rough road look-
ing for a company to manufacture it
afordably for him and the consumer,
he fnally found the perfect one and
1,500 units will be ready to sell by
mid-August in olive drab, black, and
desert tan. And he already has some
orders from military friends and of-
fcers stationed in Afghanistan.
“It looks military,” he said.
It has a very classy, compact de-
sign and looks like a small backpack.
It’s ergonomically designed and can
be worn in front or back or over the
shoulder to ft the body snugly. Tis
serves to keep stress of the back. Al-
though there are some bags that look
like it, often they’re made of leather
and therefore heavy and much more
At a little less than $50, it is priced
so anyone can aford it.
He is so confdent about his prod-
uct that his only concern right now
is that, “I’ll probably be sold out by
Christmas, but that’s a good worry
to have,” he said.
I’ve always had the mind-set of
Why Not? Can’t tell you the num-
ber of people who said ‘You can’t do

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) As
eager as you are to take on that new
challenge, it would be best to temper
that spurt of “Ram”-bunctious energy
until you have more facts to back up
your decision to move.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20)
This is a good time for hardworking
Bovines to take a break from their
hectic on-the-job schedules to bask in
the unconditional love and support of
friends and family.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Pay
attention to what you hear in the work-
place. You could pick up some hints
about possible changes. Meanwhile, a
new infusion of creative energy sets in
by week’s end.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Try
to be more flexible in dealing with a
suddenly difficult situation, whether
it’s on the job or in the home. Others
might have some good points to offer.
Listen to them.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) You
might think you’re not getting the
royal treatment you deserve. But be
careful not to become a royal pain by
complaining about it. Be patient and
allow things to work out.
VIRGO (August 23 to September
22) Watch that penchant for being
super-judgmental at work. It might
create a bad impression with someone
whose decisions could determine the
course of your career.
LIBRA (September 23 to October
22) You’ve been your usual busy-bee
self, gathering nectar wherever you
can find it. But now’s a good time to
kick back, relax and just enjoy smell-
ing the roses.
SCORPIO (October 23 to Novem-
ber 21) That pesky personal situation
seems to be improving. But change
comes slowly, so be patient. Expect
someone to bring more positive news
by week’s end.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to
December 21) Whoa! Ease up on that
hectic pace you’ve been putting your-
self through. Take time to recharge
your energy levels before going full
gallop again.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to
January 19) Try to be intrigued, not
intimidated, by the issues you’re sud-
denly facing, and you’ll be ahead of
the game. Don’t be afraid to demand
answers to your questions.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to Febru-
ary 18) New associates freezing you
out of their inner circle? Never mind.
Put a warm smile on that friendly face
of yours, and you’ll soon thaw them all
down to size.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20)
Your wise guidance helps colleagues
agree to compromise and move for-
ward. Meanwhile, there are still vital
issues you need to deal with in your
personal life.
being free with your emotions, but you
also can exercise disciplined focus.
You would make a fine artist.

series of six articles announcing the
supposed discovery of life on the

animals such as unicorns, two-legged
beavers and furry, winged humanoids
resembling bats.

children in the United States. In just the last 60 years, the life expec-
tancy of a child born with cystic fbrosis has increased to ages 30- 40 and
beyond. Since its founding in 1955, the CFF has channeled the dedication
and contributions of its supporters toward the advances in research and
medical treatments that have made this possible.
My nephew’s mom tells their story….
My son has Cystic Fibrosis (CF). I’d like to share with you some infor-
mation about him and the disease he deals with every day.
Cystic fbrosis is a genetic disease which afects approximately 30,000
children and adults in the US. A defective gene causes the body to
produce abnormally thick, sticky mucus. Tis abnormal mucus leads to
chronic and life-threatening lung infections and impairs digestion. Te
median age of survival is 38 years – there is no cure.
Statistics tell us that my son’s health will continue to decline. He is
losing about 2% of his lung function each year. His lung function is cur-
rently at about 82%.
To help keep his lungs clear, he must receive at least two 30-minutes
sessions of chest physical therapy a day to loosen the mucus that ac-
cumulates in his lungs. In addition, he does four nebulizer treatments
daily (one [hypertonic saline] to loosen the thick mucus in his lungs; one
[Pulmozyme] to thin the mucus so that he may cough the small particles
out; and inhaled antibiotics [Tobramycin] twice a day to try to keep the
bacteria that lives in his lungs somewhat under control.
Because the thick sticky mucus is throughout his body, it clogs the
pancreas so it does not digest and absorb fat. He takes medicine to help
digest the fat; however, he loses the calorie beneft of much of the food he
eats. Tis undigested food leads to bowel obstructions (Distal Intestinal
Obstructive Syndrome – DIOS) and poor weight gain.
In CF, poor weight gain results in poor lung function.
Te efort to breathe (while resting) for someone with CF causes them
to burn 25% more calories. Tis increases with exercise. Te doctor’s
have compared their efort to breath with closing your mouth and one
nostril; and only breathing through one nostril.
Te sticky mucus blocks the sinus passages and causes nasal polyps.
Te reproductive system is also afected by CF. Sperm is unable to trav-
el through the vas deferens as it is blocked by the sticky mucus. Another
problem associated with cystic fbrosis is CF-related diabetes.
When my son is not sick, he takes approximately 50 pills a day – as well
as several other medicines delivered in other forms.
Did I mention the cost of some of these medicines? Several medicines
are identifed as specialty medicines and others are only available from
certain companies specifed by the drug manufacturer. Te Tobramycin
and the delivery system equipment cost is $2,500 every two months.
My son is seen quarterly at an accredited Cystic Fibrosis Care Center.
More visits are required when he is ill or testing positive for various
bacteria. Te cost for these visits and testing is very high. Do you put a
price on one’s health? Or one’s life?
