Fluke Kills Horse and Injures Fans

March 27, 2009 by Blue Ridge Leader Equestrian Comments Off on Fluke Kills Horse and Injures Fans

March 27, 2009

This year’s Piedmont Races at the Upperville Show Grounds ended in a way
no one could have expected.

It was no surprise that Quick Line led the field to the finish and crossed the line first: he won the Blue Ridge Races and came in second at Casanova earlier this season. But on Saturday the 13-year-old gelding suffered a ruptured aorta in the final second of the race and careened out of control as he crossed the finish line, trampling through a tailgate party.

Five spectators were injured; two were taken to Winchester Hospital, two were airlifted to Inova Fairfax Hospital, and one was treated at the scene. When the horse collapsed, jockey Noel Ryan was thrown through a fence.

Piedmont Equine Practice veterinarian Paul Diehl said that he knew the horse had suffered a heart attack as soon as it began to stagger. “He went down very quickly,” Diehl said. “I ran forty yards but he was already dead when I got there.”

Ryan and co-owner Julia Butcher were devastated by the horse’s death. They bought Quick Line in October and had recently taken him for a physical, which showed no health problems. But horses are vulnerable to sudden heart attacks just like people, according to Diehl. Ryan confirmed that last year he saw a horse drop dead playing polo.

Loudoun Fire and Rescue did not release the names of the victims, and as of this writing their condition is unknown.

Frank Raflo: 1919-2009

March 27, 2009 by Blue Ridge Leader Loudoun County Comments Off on Frank Raflo: 1919-2009

March 27, 2009

Loudoun County lost one of its champions when Frank Raflo died on March 15 at the age of 89. His influence as a businessman, writer, and local politician spanned the second half of the twentieth century.

Raflo attended Leesburg High School and the College of William and Mary. He served two terms on the Leesburg Town Council, from 1949 to 1951 and from 1953 to 1955, and he was Leesburg’s mayor from 1961 to 1963. He also served fourteen years on the Board of Supervisors, from 1972 to 1986. During that time, Raflo ran a dress shop with his wife, Frances. It was the first store in Leesburg to accept credit cards. He also wrote a weekly column for the Loudoun Times Mirror and later for Leesburg Today.

Raflo is survived by his wife and two sons.

Taco Bell Rings Wrong

March 27, 2009 by Blue Ridge Leader Dear Editor Comments Off on Taco Bell Rings Wrong

March 27, 2009

I am very confused.

Over the years I have lived in Williamsburg, Quantico, and Arlington. [And, since it seems to be a needed qualification to comment on this topic, I am an Eagle Scout.] When looking for a change, we researched Loudoun County. Leesburg had such beautiful historic appeal but eventually we chose to settle near Purcellville. We were captivated by the vibrant, yet small town feel of the 21st Street shops, Nichols Hardware, the White Palace, Magnolia’s at the Mill, and the town’s Train Station / Community Center. We appreciate the fact that this area did not subscribe to the fairy tale that fast food restaurants were really healthy alternatives to a balanced meal or a destination restaurant. … Continue Reading

Farms or Schools in Wheatland?

March 27, 2009 by Blue Ridge Leader Dear Editor, Farm and garden Comments Off on Farms or Schools in Wheatland?

March 27, 2009
Guest Opinion
by Chip Planck, Wheatland Vegetable Farms

The never-ending effort of Loudoun County to protect its rural character from the effects of growth is playing out currently in the Wheatland area. There, at the corner of John Wolford Road and Route 287, the School Board has contracted to buy a site for multiple schools. Just south of that stretch of John Wolford Road, and west of 287, lie 400 acres of farmland. On that land is a diverse concentration of the adaptive, competitive agriculture that planners and politicians have hoped for years would evolve so that farming could hold its own with other land uses. … Continue Reading

Agro-Depot Lends a Hand

March 27, 2009 by Blue Ridge Leader Business, Columns, View From the Ridge Comments Off on Agro-Depot Lends a Hand

March 27, 2009
By Mark Dewey

This morning’s news left me pondering two different kinds of value, real and false—or maybe it’s two different kinds of people.

I read that Obama decided to give bankers $2 trillion to cover their bad debts—not all bankers, just the ones that tried to make money out of nothing and wound up making this economic disaster instead—and in response investors bought so many stocks that the Dow Jones average rose seven percent in one day. No real value grows that fast.
