Faith-based Trump support missing as the chill winds of 2018 arrive

Published

FRONT ROYAL – Stopping by to photograph and stay in contact with both sides of the dueling pro and anti-Trump demonstrations across Chester Street in Historic Downtown Front Royal over the first weeks of 2018, we witnessed an unexpected development. – That was that the faith-based pro-Trump Catholics who had joined original pro-Trump demonstrators Michael and Ralph Waller in front of their East Main Street pawn shop in late May 2017 had vanished.

According to both sides of the street, as of January 31 it had been three weeks since a representative of the pro-Trump Catholic contingent of about eight to 15 adults had been seen. Well, it was cold through much of January – too cold apparently for even flat-Trump, the life-size cardboard cutout of the president who became a regular along with some of his new Front Royal pals.

Bob Hill crosses the political divide to offer Sherp some back up. 

But in the mid-to-late January absence of the faith-based Trump supporters, the more playful interaction between the two opposing sides of the political street re-emerged. As Royal Examiner has reported in past coverage of these dueling political camps, the emergence of a faith-based group of Trump supporters had diminished the positive dialogue that had begun between Vigil for Democracy participants and the Wallers between March and early May 2017 (The trend of a faith-based unwillingness to seek common ground for political dialogue will be explored in depth in a coming Royal Examiner feature story).

But back to the final three Wednesdays of January 2018 – as illustrated in some of the accompanying photographs, a more playful crossing of political lines was evident as Vigil for Democracy organizer Len Sherp and Bob Hill crossed Chester Street to re-engage the Wallers in dialogue and some pointed, aggressive, yet humorous political banter.

Before the reinforcement arrived on Jan. 31, Sherp found himself in a friendly tug of war with the Wallers.

As Sherp and Hill returned to the Vigil for Democracy side of the street, this reporter remained on the pro-Trump side to discuss the previous evening’s State of the “Uniom” (how early tickets were distributed by the White House, spelling error included) speech, as well as evolving situations surrounding the Trump presidency. A major sticking point was the special prosecutor’s investigation of any possible Trump campaign ties to Russian efforts to assist them in the election, as well as what some perceive as an escalating partisan panic from Pennsylvania Avenue to Capitol Hill as that investigation closes in on the Trump inner circle.

My parting shot was to note the supposedly compromised law enforcement officials around that investigation are virtually all Republicans by Party preference and/or appointment, including Trump-appointed Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and the ultimate target, Special Prosecutor and life-long Republican and George W. Bush appointee to head the FBI, Robert Mueller.

As our decades-old opposing perspectives were re-engaged, Ralph offered that your humble reporter was “sick in the head” to distrust the veracity of the president, or to trust existing or former leadership of the FBI to engage in a fair investigation of Trump and his team.

“And tell them over there they are sick in the head too,” Ralph offered as I began to cross the street to photograph the loyal opposition.

But you know what? – Those assessments were offered with a smile, a laugh and no indication we could not re-engage our discussion of varying perspectives the following week.

As for those varying perspectives expressed on January 31, 2018 …

Not an uncrossable political divide, but perhaps just a difference in priorities – and perspectives …

A sustained voice for conservation in Page and Warren counties

Published

on

Local conservation groups, Alliance for the Shenandoah Valley (Alliance) and Scenic 340 Project, are excited to announce a joining of forces to build on and continue Scenic 340’s great track record of land and water conservation in Page and Warren counties.

The Scenic 340 Project formed in 1999 to oppose a Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) proposal to widen Route 340 from Front Royal to Luray to four and five lanes endangering scenic viewsheds, Civil War battlefields, productive farmland, community identity and a growing heritage tourism industry. For more than a decade, Scenic 340 members were deeply engaged in the transportation planning process, promoting alternatives guided by Context Sensitive Solutions. VDOT eventually abandoned the plan, opting instead to replace four bridges in need of repair.

Before joining forces with the Alliance this month, Scenic 340 continued to advocate to change road-building policy at the state level, partnered with community members to conserve more than 2,300 acres of forest and farmland, including a critical wildlife travel corridor linking Shenandoah National Park and George Washington National Forest, and enhanced the scenic beauty of the historic Route 340 corridor with Project Redbud, replanting the native trees along the corridor.

“I am proud of all Scenic 340 has accomplished over the years,” says Christine Andreae, founding board member of both the Alliance and Scenic 340. “By joining forces, the Alliance can build on the strong foundation laid by dedicated Scenic 340 volunteers for future conservation successes.”

Alliance for the Shenandoah Valley is a regional conservation group working since its launch in 2018 to ensure the land and water resources and vibrant communities of the Valley are protected for the long haul. With dedicated staff in Augusta, Rockingham and Shenandoah counties, the Alliance follows the local issues unique to each county while also tackling issues that face the region, like safety improvements for Interstate 81.

“We are delighted to welcome Scenic 340 Project to the Alliance,” says Alliance Executive Director Kate Wofford. “We look forward to many years of impactful work protecting the extraordinary forest and farmland, clean streams and rivers and vibrant local communities that make Page and Warren Counties great places to live and work.”

The Alliance’s work in Page and Warren counties will be guided by a Page and Warren Advisory Council made up of with former members of Scenic 340 Project.

Lord Fairfax Health District warns residents of rabies risk in bats

Published

on

Northern Long-eared Bat
USFWS

On several occasions starting on November 24, 2019, residents of a rural property in Warren County encountered bats inside their house.  Since that time, three of these bats were captured and two of them tested positive for the rabies virus.

 “Any physical encounter with a bat—a bite, scratch, or lick, a collision with a flying bat, or even finding a bat in a room with a sleeping person—should be considered a rabies exposure,” stated Lord Fairfax Health District Director Dr. Colin Greene, “and anyone so exposed should seek medical attention immediately.”

Rabies is a virus that causes a fatal brain infection in mammals, including humans.  Once symptoms begin, death follows in nearly all cases, but a series of shots given soon after a person is exposed can prevent the disease from occurring.  Rabies virus is spread through the saliva of an animal that is actively sick with the disease, transmitted through a bite or scratch, or a lick on broken skin or mucous membranes.  Unlike other common sources of rabies—raccoons, foxes, skunks, feral cats and the occasional ground hog—bats have a much higher level of mobility through flight, and their very small mouths make it possible for a sleeping person to be unaware of having been bitten.  Bats also present a rabies risk over a wide area, in every state except Hawaii.

Bats are a part of the natural environment and offer many benefits, including insect control.  Only a very small percentage of bats carry rabies at any one time, but it is not possible to tell by looking whether a bat has rabies, and bats in unusual places, such as inside a dwelling or outside in the daytime, are more likely to be affected.  Once again, any physical contact between a human and a wild bat, or a bat present in a room with a sleeping person, is a potential rabies exposure.  Affected persons should be seen by a healthcare provider right away.

The health department further advises:

  • Never approach or touch wild animals, especially any raccoon, fox, skunk or bat, especially if it is behaving oddly or if it is seen in the daylight.
  • If you find a bat in a room where a human has been sleeping, that person must be seen by a medical professional immediately.
  • If you have bats in your attic or other area where you may physically encounter them, strongly consider having them removed by a professional.
  • Avoid stray cats and dogs. Feral or unknown cats and dogs may also carry rabies. Report bites or scratches from these animals to your physician or the health department.
  • Vaccinate all cats, dogs and ferrets against rabies (even if they don’t go outdoors) and keep their shots up to date. Vaccinate working barn cats as well, for their protection and yours.
  • Do not feed wild animals or stray cats or dogs.  Eliminate outdoor food sources around the home.
  • Keep pets confined to your property or walk them on a leash.
  • If one of your domestic animals is bitten or otherwise interacts with a wild mammal, notify the local health department and animal control officer at once, and have the animal seen by a veterinarian.

 If you are bitten, scratched, or licked by any of these animals, seek medical attention immediately. Rabies is fatal to both animals and humans once symptoms begin, but it can be prevented in humans if they receive vaccine and medication soon after exposure.

 Finally, if in doubt, or if you have a question, call your local health department, or the Frederick/Winchester office at 540-722-3480.

Additional information on rabies is available from the Virginia Department of Health at http://www.vdh.virginia.gov/environmental-epidemiology/rabies-control/.

Retiring superintendent, school board members receive formal send-off

Published

FRONT ROYAL — Two outgoing members of the Warren County School Board and retiring Warren County Public Schools (WCPS) Superintendent Greg Drescher on Wednesday night received a formal goodbye from their School Board colleagues.

The School Board held a reception for the retiring public servants prior to their regular December 4 meeting at the government center and then during the meeting presented them with gifts and official resolutions recognizing the time they’ve worked for Warren County.

The last day for Drescher and the expiring terms for School Board members Donna McEathron and C. Douglas Rosen all fall on December 31.

Drescher, who has been the WCPS superintendent for five years following a 37-year career in education, on September 6 announced his retirement in a press release in which he cited his wife’s “serious health issues” as being a primary factor in his decision to leave WCPS early.

Shortly thereafter, the School Board during its regular October 2 meeting unanimously voted to put Drescher on paid administrative leave until his retirement after he was indicted along with more than a dozen other local individuals in the Front Royal-Warren County Economic Development Authority (EDA) financial scandal. Those charges were all later dismissed when the presiding judge ruled there was no legal precedent making unintentional negligence a criminal offense in Virginia.

Drescher simultaneously was superintendent of schools and a member of the EDA Board of Directors. He served 12 years on the EDA board and was board chairman in 2017-2018 during the height of what has been shown to be when the financial scandal started to unravel. He resigned completely from the EDA board in March.

Meanwhile, both School Board terms for McEathron and Rosen are up at the end of the year and neither of them sought reelection during the November special elections.

Retiring Warren County School Board member C. Douglas Rosen has served on the board since October 23, 2014.

Retirement reception revelers: (left to right) Warren County Administrator Doug Stanley, who attended the School Board reception and meeting as president of the Warren County Educational Endowment; outgoing WCPS Superintendent Greg Drescher; and interim WCPS superintendent Melody Sheppard.

The School Board noted during the presentations portion of its Wednesday meeting that since it was the final regular meeting for Drescher, Donna McEathron and Rosen, the board members wished to recognize their service to the citizens and students of Warren County.

A resolution in recognition and appreciation of their service was prepared for each of them and then adopted by the School Board. Chairwoman Bower read out loud each resolution to those in attendance at the meeting. Drescher received a standing ovation from the crowd following presentation of his resolution and gift.

Warren County Educational Endowment awards $44,411.74 in grants to Warren County Public Schools

Published

on

The Warren County Educational Endowment awarded 10 grants this week, totaling $44,411.74, to the Warren County Public School System. Grants were awarded for the following projects:

  • Breath of Life – Jane Baker/WCHS, SHS, and BRTC – $3,040.00 – The grant will be used to purchase adult manikins with CPR rate monitors for Sports Medicine and Nurse Assistant classes. CPR training and certification testing is now required for Sports Medicine and Nurse Assistant students. Neither high school has the proper equipment, and the adult manikins at the Tech Center no longer meet required specifications. The ability for the schools to provide their own CPR Trainers with equipment will cut costs of outside parties providing these services.
  • Guitar Methods Course – Beth Whitney/Warren County High School – $4,933.79 – The goal of this project is to establish a guitar program at Warren County High School. Skyline High School already has a guitar program, so this would extend the opportunity to all high school students in the county. It would also expand on the ukulele and guitar programs at some of the county elementary schools. A guitar program would give students a new opportunity to expand their higher-level creative-thinking skills.
  • Interact Streamer: Removing Communication and Learning Barriers– Amiira Lanterman/WCPS Special Services – $3,900.00 – The project will provide real-time access and improved academic success for students with barriers to communication and classroom instruction. Interact-Streamer is a streaming speech to text captioning system; as the teacher speaks, there is an instant “transcript” available for the student to follow along with the lecture in real time. Interact-Streamer provides a voice to students who need it; as the student types, there is an instant text-to-voice “dictation” for the rest of the class to hear. Interact-Streamer is a translator that directly translates conversations to and from a variety of foreign languages. Interact-Streamer requires a website, teacher microphone and USB receiver (all included in annual subscription). The WCPS Chromebooks are compatible with this system.
  • Keeping Fit with Chromebooks – Sarah Putnam and Betsey Walker/ Warren County High School – $1,299.95 – This grant will fund a resource for students and faculty to encourage physical well-being while also enriching their minds through reading a book and/or completing work for class on their Chromebooks. This resource will also provide an opportunity for those students who might not participate in extracurricular physical activities to maintain physical well-being.
  • Plickers – Jessica Ryan/Ressie Jeffries Elementary School – $1,688.00 – The funding will provide 4th grade teachers the opportunity to implement Plickers effectively in the classroom to enhance learning opportunities and engagement for all. Plickers is an interactive tool that is used within the classroom to collect real time data on formative assessments. The program was created by a teacher and provides students with an interactive approach to assessment. Students use Plicker cards to respond to teacher prepared questions. Plickers is an effective tool in the classroom and provides students with the opportunity to respond in an engaging way.
  • The SELf Project (Social Emotional Learning to help the SELF) – JoAnna Martin/Social Services – $4,900.00 – The goal of The SELf Project is to foster a supportive foundation which promotes social and emotional competencies for adults and students. Social emotional skills are essential for students to thrive in school and in the world. The SELf Project provides an innovative approach to promote the five competencies of Social Emotional Learning (self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills and responsible decision-making). Support for delivering SEL content will be provided in two ways. On a larger level, elementary schools will be given Mindfulness Bins which will contain lessons and resources on mindfulness for teachers to easily implement mindfulness-related activities into their classrooms. In addition, there will be a focus on one classroom to pilot a more intensive option. The SELf Project combines an evidence-based curriculum and restorative practices as well as teacher self-care support systems to ensure that teachers are confident and able to successfully deliver a level of high quality SEL instruction. Supporting the teacher and providing encouragement for self-care is the most critical aspect of this project.
  • I.G. (Boys Into Gentlemen) H.O.P.E. (Helping Others Pursue Excellence) – Shane Goodwin/ E. Wilson Morrison Elementary School – $5,650.00 – The project will instill leadership and service qualities in fourth and fifth grade students that will positively contribute to the local community and beyond. The goal for the project is to provide at-risk fourth and fifth grade boys and girls with a road map for a successful future in our community and beyond. The program for girls is called Helping Others Pursue Excellence (HOPE) and our boys program is called Boys Into Gentlemen (BIG). The project aim is to introduce students to opportunities that provide leadership development, emotional support systems, career exploration, networking opportunities, and community service opportunities.
  • Customized Project Line in a School Store – Richard Gardner/Warren County High School – $6,000 – This project will have students participate in a Work-Based Learning experience through applications in a school-based enterprise (school store). By purchasing a Roland Direct to Garment Printer, the WCHS DECA’s school-based enterprise will be able to custom print school club and team apparel and cloth accessories. This will enable marketing students to explore and learn marketing concepts, such as product development, promotion, distribution, product acquisition, financing, and pricing, through a “hands-on” approach. Further CTE and Workplace Readiness Skills such as: demonstrating creativity and innovation; demonstrating critical thinking and problem solving; demonstrating customer service skills; collaborating with team members; and experiencing aspects of planning, management, financial responsibility, and technical and production skills required of workers within an industry/organization.
  • Reducing the Ecological Footprint of Warren County – Kara Lewallen/Skyline High School Green Team– $3,000 – This project will provide every Warren County Kindergarten student with an organic, fair-trade, reusable grocery bag and a true story book about an animal that has suffered due to human plastic waste in our waterways. By providing the organic, fair-trade, reusable bags, we hope to encourage students and their families to make the shift to a more environmentally sustainable way of shopping. Plastics in the ocean and our bloodstreams are problems we can try to help solve by effective communication about the issues and collaboration among our students, school system, and local businesses.
  • Patient Care Technician – Jane Baker/BRTC – $10,000 – This project will provide Nurse Assistant students additional training to become Certified Patient Care Technicians, Certified Phlebotomy Technicians, and Certified EKG Technicians. Patient Care Technician will be offered as an occupational course after the completion of Nurse Aide at the 12th-grade level. It emphasizes the study of nursing occupations as related to the healthcare system. Students will study normal growth and development, simple body structure and function, and medical terminology and will be introduced to microbes and disease. Upon completion of the course, students will master skills performing EKGs, basic medical, lab and exam procedures, drawing blood, and providing basic patient care. Students will be eligible to take the National Certification exams to become a Certified Phlebotomy Technician, Certified EKG Technician, and Certified Patient Care Technician.

The Endowment is a catalyst for improving the education and learning environment in Warren County Public Schools. Sometimes it takes private support of public efforts to incubate an idea or a new approach that helps students compete in a global marketplace, instills passion for life-long learning, and sparks a vision to strive for success. Programs funded by the Endowment are sponsored by our school system and are consistent with its mission and direction. They are intended to initiate sustained improvement in the fundamental capability of the school system and enhance the attractiveness of the community through the promotion of educational excellence.

Endowment President Doug Stanley stated, “The Warren County Educational Endowment maintains its commitment to its mission of helping the local school system support high level and creative programs for our children. The Board was again extremely excited to see the cooperation shown by the teachers in developing the grant proposals, many with cross collaboration of disciplines. With these ten grant awards, we feel that we have been able to provide additional tools to our dedicated teachers to continue to push innovation for our students in their Trek-to-Excellence.”

According to Interim School Superintendent Melody Sheppard, “The Warren County Educational Endowment continues to be a great partner of Warren County Public Schools. The funding provided by the Endowment enables our school system to create exciting learning opportunities for our students that otherwise may not have been possible. This year the Endowment is funding projects related to health sciences, performing arts, entrepreneurship, social-emotional learning, environmental stewardship, and accessibility. The Endowment continues to create a positive impact on our school system. We are thankful for their support.”

To date the Endowment has awarded 156 grants totaling $545,290.41. Persons interested in supporting the Endowment can contact the Endowment or make a donation at wceducationalendowment.org.
