Frederick County Report
On Sunday evening, at 7:45 pm,
a male wearing a full face mask, a
ball cap, a red hoody that zips in the
front, and black pants and gloves,
walked into the Quick Pick on
Main Street in Middletown. What
happened next almost changed
the Kumar family forever.
Proprietor Deepak Kumar was
alone in the store, stacking beer
in the rear refrigerators. When he
heard the bell ring that signaled
a customer, he raced to the front
of the store. Customers do not
like to be left waiting. When he
looked at his customer, he realized
there was trouble. He told me to
give him all of the money. Deep-
ak responded that there wasnt
any money, since he and his wife
Anita deposit cash throughout the
day. Without another word, the
masked man pulled a gun from
behind his back.
I didnt know if the gun was
real or not, but I stared at it. When
I saw the mans hand go for the
trigger, I dropped to the foor be-
hind the counter. Tat quick, in-
stinctive response may have saved
Deepaks life. Te man fred the
gun, most likely at Deepaks head;
the bullet went into the wall. Te
man fed on foot.
Deepak automatically called
Middletowns Police Depart-
ment. Ofcer Dan Manili was
at the scene before Deepak got
of of the phone. Te Frederick
County Sherifs Department also
responded. Te Winchester Po-
lice Department brought in their
tracking dog. Te roads leaving
Middletown were closed at 2nd
and 4th Streets, until the Police
Department checked the entire
area. A bullet was removed from
the wall behind Deepaks counter.
Deepak and Anita are still in
shock. Deepak said his family al-
most lost him, and for what? Ac-
cording to Anita, she lives in fear
that it could happen again. Te
family lives close by; Anita says
she is keeping an eye on the store
from the house. We try to treat
our customers very nice; we dont
think of them as strangers. Tis is
shocking. Anita said.
Deepak said the man was ap-
proximately fve foot eight inches
tall, and guessed he weighed from
160 to 170 pounds. Te Quick Pick
does have a security camera.
Middletown Police Chief Phil-
ip Breeden emphasized that if
someone comes into your store
requesting money, give it to them;
no amount of money is worth your
life.
Middletown Detective Mike
Tennet is investigating the at-
tempted robbery, use of a frearm
in the commission of a felony, and
wearing a mask in public. Note: it
is a felony for adults to wear masks
in public except under certain sit-
uations (which do not include rob-
bing a convenience store.)
Middletown Mayor Mark
Brown asks all citizens to be vigi-
lant. Middletown needs to act as
one large community watch; if you
see anything suspicious, please
call the Middletown Police De-
partment right away. If you have
any leads regarding the attempted
robbery at the Quick Pick, or if
you see anything suspicious in
Middletown, the Middletown Po-
lice Department can be reached at
(540) 869-2226.
Sharalyn Harris was working
alone at the 7/11 in Middletown
last Sunday night. Asked whether
she was afraid to work alone since
Sundays hold up, she said no. Of-
fcer Manili stops in here all of the
time, as do the other members of
the Middletown Police Depart-
ment. Also, we stay pretty busy, so
there are usually people around.
Her co-worker, Regina Miller
agreed.
Across the street at Middletown
Market and More, clerk Anthony
Harris said it was out of my con-
trol. What is going to happen, is
going to happen. You never know
how you will react until it happens
to you.
As for the Kumar family, Anita
and her two daughters are just
happy they still have their dad.

Dont let your bad manners get you
relegated to the kids table this holi-
day season.
Holiday meals always seem to ramp
up peoples focus on dining etiquette
and table manners, said Pat Pesci,
director of the hotel and restaurant
management program at Kansas State
University.
Typically, Americans dont sit
down and dine together, Pesci said.
People just dont break bread any-
more; they multitask. Then at this
time of the year, you have all these
holidays and the large family meals
that go with them.
The holiday meal can bring a lot of
stressors into one event: family mem-
bers who dont see each other that
often; different age groups; different
opinions; uncommon and varied cui-
sine; and fancier tableware.
Pesci said it is important to ask your
host if you can assist in any way, and
also to ask, rather than assume, where
you will be sitting.
And once youre seated, its stan-
dard to wait until everyone has food
before you begin eating, Pesci said.
When faced with uncertainty about
which of your multiple utensils to
use, start at the outside and move in
toward the plate.
Another pitfall during holiday meals
is the conversation.
Holiday meals often last an hour
or more, Pesci said. And while you
should eat slowly, it doesnt take that
long to consume food. Because so
often we eat in front of the television,
many people arent used to carrying
on lengthy conversations while eat-
ing.
Remembering not to talk with your
mouth full is one thing. Knowing
what to talk about is quite another.
Pesci said it is best to avoid topics
that might make people uncomfort-
able, such as politics, religion, sex
and controversy. Great conversation
starters are more neutral, like sports,
weather, professions, travel, movies
and where people are from.
It is important to get everyone
involved, said Pesci. We often miss
out on talking and listening to people
and finding out about them. Holiday
meals are a great time for that.
When the meal is finished, its
polite to place your napkin to the left
of your plate and push your chair in
when leaving the table.
Finally, one of the most important
tips is to never correct someones eti-
quette at the table.
Correcting someone elses man-
ners in a public setting is rude. Thats
one of the No. 1 rules, Pesci said.

Historic Jordan Springs charity-
based Christmas display to be
biggest display in nearly 40 years
Nearly half of over 75 Christmas trees are already up and
decorated as part of Historic Jordan Springs Charity Christmas
Events and Tours. Every design this year is completely new, and
this promises to be the biggest display yet in the nearly 40 years
that Jordan Springs owners Greig and Tonie Wallace Aitken have
been creating the displays.
Each year, the rooms dcor changes and this years design
are more unique than ever. Te chapel has a nearly 14 foot tree
trimmed in plum satin fabric and bedazzled in jewel tones. Te
historic 2,500 square foot ballroom will be done in a brand new
color scheme, never-before seen in the estates history.
Among the tours are a host of other events as well, including
the Candlelit Christmas Ghost Tour, the Christmas Tea, Lunch
with Santa, and the main Christmas Dinner & Concert starring
Brian LaBlanc as Neil Diamond.
Last year, nearly 2,000 visitors came to see the decorations at
Historic Jordan Springs. Each tour night is designated to a local
charity, and all of the proceeds go to that particular charity. As
part of the philanthropic efort, guests are asked to bring a non-
perishable food item or unwrapped toy to be distributed to local
families in need. Since its inception, the charity tours have gen-
erated nearly $100,000 in food, toy, and monetary donations.

Meet one Winchester Marine about to spend Christmas in Afghanistan
By Dan McDermott
Frederick County Report
As we enjoy Tanksgiving and
Christmas with our families here
in the United States, we thought it
would be a good idea to remem-
ber the young men and women
who serve in our armed forces
and cant be with their families
this holiday season.
2007 James Wood High School
graduate Matthew Miller will
turn 23 years old on January 4.
Hell be celebrating it at Camp
Bastion, Afghanistan where he
is a U.S. Marine Corporal cur-
rently serving as a Mobile Facility
Repairman with Marine Aviation
Logistics Squadron 40.
I spoke with Cpl. Miller via the
technical operations center of the
Defense Video & Imagery Distri-
bution System just days before
the news broke of increasingly
strained relations between the
United States and Afghanistans
neighbor Pakistan.
Frederick County Report: What
prompted you to enlist in the
Marine Corps?
Cpl. Matthew Miller: Well my
moms side of the family had a
collective 97 years of service in
the Navy and they really wanted
me to go that route and complete
the 100 years but from all the
challenges I had heard about the
Marine Corps I was drawn in that
direction.
FCR: I know you are a mechanic.
What exactly do you do there?
MM: Right now we work on gen-
erators to supply power. We assist
all the other squadrons with air-
craft to keep them fying. We also
work on air conditioning units
in the shelters the other marines
work out of . Tey have to keep
certain equipment within certain
temperature ranges.
FCR: When did you join and
when did you get overseas?
MM: I took the summer after
high school to have some fun be-
fore I went to boot camp. I was
in the delayed entry program.
From boot camp I went to school
down in Pensacola, FL for about
7 months then I was in Cherry
Point, NC for about two months
and fnally to my station which is
Marine Corps Air Station New
River in Jacksonville, NC. Late
last year I went to Pakistan for
three months on a humanitarian
mission and now I am in Afghan-
istan.
FCR: How do you celebrate
Tanksgiving and Christmas
when you are on a base in Af-
ghanistan?
MM: Well they have some nice
Tanksgiving dinners at the chow
halls. My unit actually has a com-
petition where they try to make
the best looking and best tasting
meal out of MREs. It is us and
nine others. We call it Iron Chef
A native of Winchester, VA, Cpl. Matthew Miller is cur-
rently serving as a Mobile Facility Repairman with

tion, Afghanistan.

Afghanistan.
FCR: How is the food on the
base? Is it good?
MM: Its edible. (laughter)
FCR: How does it feel having to
spend the holidays away from
your family?
MM: Well you get kind of lonely
around the holidays but I know
what my job is out here. I know
what Im supposed to be doing
and I know when I get back Ill be
able to have great moments like I
would having Tanksgiving Din-
ner with the family.
FCR: What do you feel you are
accomplishing in Afghanistan?
What diference are you making?
MM: I would say our main mis-
sion over here is to win the hearts
and minds of the locals and what
I have read in the newspapers
and such I believe we are doing a
good job.
FCR: Do you think most of the
locals you encounter are glad we
are there or do they want us to
leave tomorrow?
MM: Te ones I have come into
contact with, they support what
we are doing over here. Te ma-
jority are really friendly, really
talkative.
FCR: How much interaction with
the locals do you have in your
job? Are you stuck on a base or
do you get to go into town?
MM: Im stuck on base right now.
Te only time we get interaction
with Afghans is when we get on
the bus or go to chow hall.
FCR: Tell me something about
living in Pakistan and Afghani-
stan that most Americans
wouldnt know.
MM: Well, I knew it was hot but
personally I dont think people
know just how hot it is during the
summer. When I frst got here it
was 120-130 degrees and the sun
was beating down on me pretty
hard.
FCR: What is the humidity?
MM: Pretty much zero. It is re-
Page 6 Frederick County Report November 30 - December 6, 2011 Read all issues in their entirety FREE on www.FredCoReport.com
ally dry heat. It is about 45 de-
grees now. Te coldest it gets is
around 30.
FCR: Do you feel relatively safe
where you are?
MM: Well it wasnt exactly too
dangerous but we had indirect
fre a few weeks ago. It was a
mortar round that landed on our
compound. It was about 20-30
yards from where I was. I didnt
explode but it went through some
metal material the marines use
for runways. It landed right be-
side the compound and everyone
was shook up but then we went
back to doing what we do.
FCR: What goes through your
head when something like that
happens?
MM: Luckily for me I was of
shift when it happened. I was al-
ready back in my room but when
I came and saw exactly what it did
it made me realize that I know
that Im here in a dangerous area
but Im here to do my job and
make sure it gets done.
FCR: Early in the war there were
news reports of families buying
all sorts of things for the soldiers,
even armor. How well equipped
are you. Are there things you
need?
MM: Te gear I have been is-
sued is all top-of-the-line stuf.
Its what everyone else is issued.
I dont know why they were say-
ing there were armor issues. We
do get care packages. I know one
marine who talked to his father
back home in Washington and
all he wanted for Christmas was
Christmas lights. So we got all
these boxes of Christmas lights
and were going to decorate it up
and take pictures and send them
back to the newspapers back
home and show them exactly
how we are doing.
FCR: If some folks would like to
send you something, what would
it be and where should they send
it?
MM: Well we have a mailing ad-
dress for care packages. It is Cor-
poral Matthew R. Miller, MALS
40, DET A, Work Center 990,
Unit 78369, FPO AE 09510.
FCR: What would be good send.
Obviously chocolate wouldnt
work if it gets that hot but what
do you not have that would be a
good idea?
MM: Well I know were all big fans
of jerky. Tere are a lot of hunt-
ers in my family so theyre going
to be sending me deer jerky here
soon. We get some creative pack-
ages that come in. We get letters
from the elementary school kids
and the little pictures that they
draw. We try to respond back but
we get so many in that it is hard
to keep up with them and still get
our work done.
FCR: How long does it take for a
package to arrive?
MM: It is about a week or two de-
pending on the mail.
FCR: How do you communicate
with your family? I know we are
speaking through a military com-
munications network. Do you
have internet access?
MM: Yes, I contact my wife
through email and I usually call
my immediate family once or
twice a week depending on how
busy we are.

Frederick County Report
Master Sargent Keith Felde
was stationed in Taji, Iraq, ap-
proximately ffteen miles north
of Baghdad. He had been there
since January 2011. Tis was not
his frst overseas tour as a mem-
ber of the Corps of Engineers in
the Army Reserves; he was in
Iraq on two one-year tours, and
also made several civilian trips.
His unit was scheduled to come
home on December 16, 2011.
Suddenly, Felde was told that
he was to go home early. His wife,
Glenda, did not believe him. Tell
me when you have your itiner-
ary Glenda said. He called her
on Friday, November 18th, and
said that he would be home on
Tuesday, November 22nd.
Te Feldes did not tell their
two daughters, Braylee, 11, and
Lilly, 7. Keith asked his daughters
by phone what they would think if
he showed up in their classroom
one day. Braylee nixed the idea; it
would be too embarrassing.
Now that they knew he was
coming home early, Glenda came
up with the idea of surprising the
girls during lunchtime at Armel
Elementary School. Te school
was game. Tey worked with
the Feldes during Keiths deploy-
ments. At one point, when Lilly
was having a hard time, Keith
called the school so he could talk
with Lilly. Lilly was brought to
the ofce and instead of being
in trouble she got to talk to her
Dad.
Tis time, the school gathered
around the Feldes again. Local
reporters were a bit of a tip of,
but the girls were very surprised
when they looked up from their
lunch to see their Dad standing
there in his fatigues. Keith few
direct from Kuwait to Dulles,
where wife Glenda left him out
in the rain after he few for dou-
ble-digit hours. He reunited with
his dog, Annie, frst. Te couple
taped the reunion.
Next came the lunchtime re-
union with his daughters. Te
girls, disbelief on their face, ran to
their Daddy, while Mom, Glenda,
wiped away her tears.
According to Keith, the tran-
sition from war zone to home is
quiet. I am not used to sleeping
at night. Im used to helicopters
fying and incoming mortars. Te
frst few nights it was almost too
quiet around here. Added Glen-
da, the frst few days I wondered
where my husband was, but by
Sunday, I knew I had him back.
Te family went to Carrabbas
to celebrate Keiths frst night
back. Tey had a friend over
for Tanksgiving for turkey and
football. Keith visited with his
co-workers in Winchester. His
Harley, which was covered with
cobwebs, got dusted of and went
for a ride.
Glenda, who said it was very
hard to be a single Mom while
Keith was away, already produced
a honey-do list. It will get done
eventually.
In the meantime, the family is
enjoying hanging out together.
Tey decorated their Christmas
tree. Keith and Lilly read books
together. Te early risers in the
family, Lilly snuggles with Keith
every morning, and the two have
breakfast together. Braylee hangs
with Dad later in the day.
Keith is enjoying being home.
He said people come up to him
all of the time, and thank him
for his service. His colleagues
in Iraq? Tey are mad he got to
come home early!
On December 16th, Keith will
join his colleagues and go to Fort
Dix where he will process out of
the Army. Until then, he is happy
to be hanging out with his girls.

Please help bring Tigger home!
By Sue Golden
Frederick County Report
As our readers know, the
Fletcher family lost just about
everything they owned when
their home at 7723 Main Street
in Middletown burned on Hal-
loween. Te Fletchers are thank-
ful for the outpouring of help and
support from the community.
Te family continues to try to re-
bound from their tragic loss.
Te family needs your help one
more time. Te Fletchers had
three cats. Lucky died in the fre.
Topaz returned to the burned
house sometime after the fre.
Its paws were burnt. Te Fletch-
ers took Topaz to the Newtown
Veterinary Clinic in Stephens
City. Neighbors Stephanie Pend-
leton and Barbara Scarlett paid
for Topazs treatment. Te third
cat, Tigger, received mouth-to-
mouth resuscitation and oxygen
at the scene, and was taken to the
Plaza Pet Clinic in Winchester,
where it is recovering.
Tree year old Colton still wants
to go back to his old home, not
understanding that he can never
return to that house again. He
also wants to bring Tigger home.
However, Tigger has vet bills to-
taling approximately $1,633, even
with Plaza Pet Clinic writing of
much of the expenses.
According to Dr. Andrea Wart-
luft, when Tigger was dropped
of at the Clinic by an animal
control ofcer, only some of his
burns were obvious, but his oxy-
gen level was extremely low. Te
frst couple of days, Tigger was
on fuid therapy and oxygen. Two
to three days later, Tiggers burns
were readily apparent.
Although the burns were not
life-threatening, Tigger sufered
some severe burns. Tiggers paw
pads were completely burned of.
His ears had to be cropped due to
the severity of his burns. In ad-
dition, his reproductive organs
were burned and he had to be
catheterized. Due to the nature
of the injuries, Tigger was se-
dated a number of times, so his
burns could be cleaned. As his
condition improved, Tigger still
required IV fuids, antibiotics,
and pain medication.
Dr. Wartluft said that weve
all worked a little extra for him.
She came in on her day of to do
his surgery. Other staf members
jumped in to help. He is such a

gers hospitalization costs, near-
ly $1,000. Tere are no boarding

National Park Service and the Hofman
family announce special holiday showing
of the Hofman Historic House
MIDDLETOWN, VA Te Hofman family, in partnership with
the National Park Service, invite the general public to a special
free opening of the Hofman Historic House, in Middletown, Vir-
ginia, on Saturday, December 10, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Te Hofman House, constructed circa 1797, is one of the oldest
and most well preserved homes in Middletown. Located at 7827
Main Street, Middletown, the house is privately owned, and has
been painstakingly restored by the Hofman family. Furnished
with original furniture, household tools, appliances, clothing
and personal family items, all dating from the late 18th century
through the 20th century, the house is a virtual time-capsule of
Middletowns long and rich history.
Only open periodically, this event allows the general public a
rare opportunity to step back in time and glimpse earlier periods
of Shenandoah Valley history. Te house will be decorated for
the holidays, following the local mid-19th century traditions of
the Valley and light refreshments will be served. A National Park
Service ranger, along with Hofman family members and friends,
will host visitors, provide information on the house and historic
Middletown and answer questions.
Additionally, a special ranger program, War Comes to the
Shenandoah Valley will be presented at the house at 12:00 p.m.
Tis 45 minute program examines the tremendous impacts the
Civil War had on the Valley and its residents.
Cedar Creek and Belle Grove National Historical Park is a part-
nership park that commemorates a nationally signifcant Civil
War landscape and antebellum plantation, by sharing the story
of Shenandoah Valley history from early settlement through the
Civil War and beyond.

SVEC 2012 scholarship
information
An investment in Knowledge always pays the best interest -
Benjamin Franklin.
Since 1992, Shenandoah Valley Electric Cooperative (SVEC)
has awarded scholarships to deserving high school seniors in the
region that it serves. Tese students have earned the scholar-
ships with excellence in the classroom, extracurricular activi-
ties, and contributions to the community. In the years since the
scholarship has been awarded, the Cooperative has given back
more than $60,000 to the community. During the spring of 2012
SVEC will award ten $1,000 scholarships to students whose par-
ents or guardians are member/owners of SVEC.
Furthering ones education is the best investment for success
in the future. Te obstacles facing most students today are the
rising costs associated with a college education.
Te goal of SVECs scholarship program is to make a students
dream of higher education become a reality. Te only require-
ments for a student to apply for the scholarship are that their
parents, or guardians, must be member/owners of Shenandoah
Valley Electric Cooperative and the student must attend a high
school located in the areas served by the Cooperative.
Students will be judged for the scholarship based on a number
of criteria. Te three most important criteria will be the quality
of the essay provided by the student, participation in school/com-
munity activities, and the quality of their high school course load.
Other information used to judge the applicants will be letters of
reference and grade point average. It is important to note that
the frst step in the judging process is a blind review of the essays.
Te judges have no information (including name, high school,
or gender) regarding who wrote the essays at this point. Based
on the essays, the judges will narrow the applicant pool before
reviewing all other information submitted with the application.
Te eligibility requirements and judging criteria are outlined in
the application form that will be available at any SVEC ofce or
the students school guidance department after December 5. All
applications and essays must be delivered personally to SVECs
Mt. Crawford ofce by 4:30 p.m. on February 24, 2012, or post-
marked no later than February 24, 2012.
FREDERICK COUNTY, VA.
Frederick County is joining with
other Virginia counties to map
broadband availability by starting
their own local Internet speed test-
ing campaign.
Residents with Internet access are
asked to take the Accelerate Virginia
speed test to help identify areas in
the county in need of better access
to high-speed Internet services. Te
Accelerate Virginia Internet speed
test is a short and simple online
survey and speed test that measures
the overall quality and performance
of your Internet connection. Upon
completion of the speed test users
will receive performance details re-
garding their Internet connection,
as well as a comparison summary
based on other speed test results in
your community.
To participate in the Frederick
County Internet speed testing cam-
paign, all residents with Internet
access are asked to visit http://ac-
celeratevirginia.org/speedtest and
take the two-minute speed test from
their home computers. Accelerate
Virginia also encourages business
owners to take the speed test from
their business locations. Everyone
is asked to spread the word and en-
courage friends and neighbors to
participate.
Because numerous, often tempo-
rary factors afect connection speed,
you may want to take the speed test
more than once, at diferent dates
and times. Te average of those
readings will present the most reli-
able overall measure of your con-
nection capabilities.
Te Accelerate Virginia cam-
paigns goal is to collect 300-500
speed tests per county.
Te data will provide county of-
fcials with a more accurate under-
standing of broadband availability,
as well as identify areas of potential
need for improved services. Te
more participation we have the bet-
ter the assessment will be for Fred-
erick County.
Often referred to as high-speed
Internet service, broadband makes
possible videoconferencing, In-
ternet phone (VoIP), streaming
media, interactivity, and real-time
online consultation. Broadband al-
lows faster and richer interactions
between citizens and government,
businesses and customers, educa-
tors and students, libraries and
patrons, and families and friends.
Broadband empowers Frederick
County residents to launch busi-
nesses, work from home, expand
their studies, pay bills, conduct re-
search, complete homework, play
games and be entertained, exchange
e-mails or photos, even stay con-
nected through social networks like
Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
By improving communication
and the fow of information, broad-
band creates jobs, decreases health
care costs, reduces miles driven and
fossil fuels consumed, expands con-
sumer choices, improves competi-
tion, and entertains more people for
less cost.
Broadband is the backbone of a
high skill, high tech economy, and
can lead to a better life for everyone
in Virginia.
Accelerate Virginia was launched
in 2010 as an extension of the Vir-
ginia Tech eCorridors program and
is responsible for the collection of
consumer broadband availability
data for Virginias broadband map-
ping initiative. By participating in
the Frederick County Internet speed
testing campaign you will be getting
real-time information about the
quality of your Internet connection,
a comparison summary of what
others in your community are re-
porting, including provider names,
connection types, speed averages
and satisfaction ratings, and better
awareness about the speed you need
to access content and services you
want. You will also be contributing
information that will support Vir-
ginias efort to accurately map cur-
rent broadband availability across
the state and to help drive future
policy decisions and strategically di-
rect future funding to areas of need.
If you cannot receive high speed
Internet services at your address,
please register your broadband dead
zone at: http://www.broadband.
gov/qualitytest/deadzone/. If you
have questions or want more Infor-
mation about Accelerate Virginia,

Stewart Wins By
(Literally) Nothing
HOMESTEAD, Fla. -- One isnt ac-
tually the loneliest number. Its zero.
Zero was Tony Stewarts margin
in the closest championship battle in
NASCAR history. Zero was no margin
at all.
Try to tell Carl Edwards that.
Edwards fnished second for the
third week in a row, and as a result, he
fnished second for the season. Two
isnt supposed to be lonely, but on this
Sunday night at Homestead-Miami
Speedway, it was. Two was the posi-
tion of the frst loser. Te gentlemanly
Edwards lost to the aggressive Stew-
art.
During the latter of two rain delays,
Stewart did exactly what he had been
doing for a month. He talked smack.
Ten he delivered the smack he talked
about.
We are fxing to wear him (Ed-
wards) out, Stewart said. We get
up there and get some more track
position, and weve got a pretty good
Chevy. Weve been able to match his
lap times, and we just have to hang in
there with him. Were going to make
this interesting before its over if we
havent already.
Edwards led 119 laps, nearly twice
as many as Stewart. Stewart, howev-
er, led the fnal 36. Stewart didnt pit
when the race resumed under a yellow
fag, and Stewart stayed on the track
for track position, which he never re-
linquished. For 33 of those fnal 36 laps
Stewart led. Edwards was in second,
but he could never get much closer
than a second behind and crossed the
fnish line trailing by 1.306, which may
not be much but was, yes, infnitely
greater than Stewarts wacky and ex-
traordinary Chase margin of, uh, zero
points.
At least we know we can compete
with any of these people, Edwards
said. We know we can compete with
a three-time champion (Stewart) who
wins fve races in the Chase and still
wind up with the same number of
points as he got.
In the end, it was small consolation.
No, it was cold consolation. Ruthless
consolation.
Stewart won the race. Edwards,
who began the twice-rain-delayed
Ford 400 three points ahead, fnished
second. Tey each fnished with 2,403
points. Stewart won the champion-
ship by tie-breaker. He won fve races.
Edwards won only one.
Whether we won tonight or lost,
tonight is the start of the next season,
Edwards rationalized. I was prepared
for anything. I knew this was a pos-
sibility. I told myself Id walk back to
that motor home, win, lose or draw,
and be a good example for my kids.
Well be better next season.
Edwards average fnish in the
Chase, 4.9, was better than any previ-
ous Chase (2004-present) champion
but not enough to beat Stewart, who
won more Chase races than anyone in
history.
Stewart overcame a lousy break at
the beginning -- a mysterious hole
poked in the grille of his Chevy --
and took advantage of a good break
later, when he ran out of gas trying to
stretch his run but benefted after rain
brought the race to a halt for a while.

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

Campaign Buttons
Q:
While sorting through an
old box of clothing buttons,
I found two that were political, a
Housewives for Ike and an RFK
in 68. Both are 2 1/2 inches high
and in excellent condition. I have
been offered $50 for both, but I
think that might be a little low.
Bethany, Chesterfield, Mo.
A:
I found both of your buttons
in an auction catalog, Hakes
Americana Auction No. 197. The Ike
button was valued by Ted Hake for
$100, and the RFK portrait button,
which is considered extremely rare,
at $175.
***
Q:
I have an RCA console tele-
vision set, Model 17T, which
was originally purchased in about
1950. I hope you can tell me its val-
ue. Arlene, Haverhill, Mass.
A:
I checked with three collec-
tors who seem to agree that
your set is probably worth in the $75
to $150 range. Televisions produced
after 1948 are fairly common and
do not create that much interest with
collectors. As with most collectibles,
there are always exceptions such as
the 1975 Panasonic Flying Saucer
model ($600) and the 1960 Philco
Predicta ($500).
***
Q:
I have a pair of Swarovski
crystal candlesticks, about
2 1/2 inches tall, both marked on
the bottoms. Could you give me an
estimated value of their worth and
when produced? Dee, Sun City,
Ariz.
A:
I recommend you get a copy of
Collecting Swarovski: Identi-
fication and Price Guide by Dean A.
Genth (Krause Books) to determine
the value of your candlesticks. Your
other alternative is to hire the services
of a professional appraisal in your
area. If you hire an appraiser, you
should expect to pay for this service.
***
Q:
I have a large collection of 78-
rpm recordings, mostly Vic-
tor Red Seals and many recorded
on just one side. The artists include
Alma Gluck and Paul Whiteman.
What are records of this vintage
worth? George, Albuquerque,
N.M.
A:
Most Victor Red Seal record-
ings from the early years of the
last century are valued in the $1 to $5
range depending on artist, desirability
and condition. Caruso made record-
ings at Victor, but the most valuable
are those issued on other, earlier
labels such as Pathe and Zonophone.

Dogs Cough a Worry
DEAR PAWSS CORNER: My
friend has a Border Collie mix,
Jeffy, who is about two or three
years old. He snorts or coughs
at least 10 or 15 times a day, and
when he does, a copious amount of
mucus comes out of his nose. Can
you tell me what causes this and
how to remedy it? B.P., Prince
George, Va.
DEAR B.P.: Coughing in dogs can
have a number of causes, ranging
from allergy to serious infection. The
first thing your friend needs to do is
take Jeffy to the veterinarian to rule
out a dangerous illness like kennel
cough or other infection, or an injury.
Your friend should let the vet know
how long Jeffy has had this cough, if
he was recently boarded or regularly
goes to doggy day care, and if his
shots are up to date. Jeffy also should
be regularly treated with a heartworm
preventive; if he isnt, your friend
must let the doctor know. If Jeffy
dealt with a recent flea infestation, let
the vet know.
If Jeffy is diagnosed with an illness
respiratory infections can happen
to any dog the vet will determine
the type of infection and prescribe
medicine to treat it. He also may pre-
scribe a cough suppressant to give the
dog a little relief from the coughing.
If Jeffy gets a clean bill of health,
your friend will want to look into
other causes of his cough and mucus,
such as seasonal allergies, a food
allergy or an environmental allergy
such as dampness and/or mold in the
house. Treatment, along with reduced
exposure to the allergen thats caus-
ing the problem, can make a big dif-
ference.

Service, P.O. Box 536475, Orlando,
