an early morning car crash. The incident occurred around 2 a.m.on Route 50 near Sullyfield Circle in Chantilly.

According to Fairfax County police, Erika Alvarado of LufthansaCircle was driving a 2012 Nissan Versa east on Route 50 in thecenter lane when she lost control of the vehicle, ran off the roadto the right and struck a pole. She was pronounced dead at thescene.

Her passenger, a 29-year-old man, was transported to InovaFairfax Hospital and was listed in stable condition. No other ve-hicles were involved. Police say preliminary investigation re-vealed that “speed and alcohol may have been factors in thecrash.”

Fairfax County police say a 19-year-old male was driving a2012 Honda Civic west on McLearen, near Cobra Drive, around3:50 p.m. Then, for reasons unknown, the vehicle drove off theroad and reentered McLearen, heading west in the eastboundlanes.

As a result, it struck a 2000 Honda Civic driven by Reams,head-on. Both drivers were taken to a local hospital where Reamsdied. Police aren’t releasing the name and city of the teen unlesshe’s charged in connection with this incident.

Featuring a cast and crew of 70, Chantilly Highpresents the musical, “Evita,” about the lifeof Argentine political leader Eva Peron. The

curtain rises Wednesday-Saturday, Oct. 16-19, at 7p.m. Tickets are $12 at the door or $10 viawww.chantillyhsdrama.com.

“All the students have put in an amazing amountof time and energy and I’m proud of all their hardwork,” said Director Shannon Khatcheressian. “I can’twait for an audience to appreciate it, as well. Andthe music is so notable; it’s one of Andrew LloydWebber’s classics.”

Her sister-in-law, Molly Khatcheressian, will con-duct the pit orchestra, and Choral Director Evan Ayarsis the music director. “The show’s a good mixture oftheater and choral kids, so it’s been a great opportu-nity to collaborate with him and the choral program,”said Shannon Khatcheressian.

Senior Amanda Mason plays the lead role and, saidKhatcheressian, “I’m thrilled because she’s so talentedand dedicated to perfecting her craft that she makesdirecting the show a truly enjoyable experience.” Shesaid the audience will also love the “brilliant cos-tuming and bright, fun, colorful choreography. Andthe storyline is based on a true, historical figure, andeveryone likes to see underdogs making their way tothe top.”

The students have been rehearsing six days a week,including seven hours on Saturdays, since schoolstarted in September. “It’s a difficult show to tacklebecause the music’s so complex, there’s a lot of cho-reography and so many different scenes to stage,”explained Khatcheressian, who did the choreogra-phy. There’s also a slew of quick costume changes,including 22 just for Evita, but Khatcheressian saysthe finished product promises to be extraordinary.

Evita’s an affectionate name for Eva Peron, andMason describes her character as Argentina’s spiri-tual leader. “She’s shown from age 15 and a brown-

haired peasant living in the sticks,” said Mason. “Shelater has a relationship with Magaldi, a musician whowants to go to Buenos Aires, the ‘Big Apple’ of Ar-gentina, where it’s vibrant, colorful and lively andeveryone’s somebody and rich.”

Peron accompanies him; but once there, said Ma-son, “All the men think she’s something special, soshe ditches Magaldi and becomes a model and a ra-dio host and becomes relatively well-off. She thenmeets Juan Peron, who’s going to be the new leaderof Argentina, and likes the idea of having more richesand power. They love each other, so they marry andrule Argentina together; and the poor people adoreEvita because she gives them money and other thingsthey don’t have.”

Mason said Evita’s extremely complicated, passion

Chantilly’s Kelly Joedicke-Lawrence is a certified Zumbainstructor and, for the pastfew years, she’s held a

Zumbathon fundraiser for breast-cancerresearch.ºBut this year, her Zumba groupvoted to instead help a local charity.

“I saw the article in Centre View a fewweeks ago about WFCM [Western FairfaxChristian Ministries] and the need forpeople to hold fundraisers for them, espe-cially around the holidays,” said Joedicke-Lawrence. “So WFCM seemed like a per-fect choice.”

The event is set for Saturday, Oct. 19,from 7-8:30 p.m. (registration, 6:30 p.m.)at Cheer Tyme Chantilly,º14110 SullyfieldCircle,ºSuite C, in Chantilly. Tickets are $10and 100 percent of the proceeds will go toWFCM. Children ages 10 and up are wel-come to attend. Anyone planning to par-ticipate should RSVP [email protected].

“I’ve been in touch with [WFCM’s Com-munity Outreach Manager] Jennie Bushand we have it all set,” said Joedicke-Lawrence. “I’ll teach for free and Cheer

Tyme has generously agreed to donate thespace for the event.”

Besides the ticket price, people may alsomake additional donations to WFCM, if they

desire. All proceeds will go toward WFCM’sClient-Assistance Program, which providesfood, clothes and emergency assistance toCentreville, Chantilly and Clifton familiesin need.

“No dance or Zumba experience is needed— just a desire to have fun and help a mostworthy charity,” said Joedicke-Lawrence.“The movements are repetitive and easy tofollow, so people can catch on pretty quickly.I’m hoping we can draw a decent-sizedcrowd to make this successful.”Zumba is a Latin music-based dance/exer-cise program. “It includes salsa and reggae,but we use music from all different genres— Irish, rock, country, Top 40, etc,” saidJoedicke-Lawrence. “It’s dancing and work-ing out at the same time.”

PARTICIPANTS in the Oct. 19 class shouldwear comfortable clothing, such as T-shirts,shorts and sneakers. They may also bringwater and a small towel. The floor is pad-ded, so no mats are needed.

As for Bush and WFCM Executive Direc-tor Melissa Jansen, they couldn’t be hap-pier about the upcoming fundraiser. “We aregrateful to Kelly and her efforts for theZumbathon,” said Jansen. “The proceedswill allow us to serve clients with food,clothing and financial assistance. Last year,

With the Center for Disease Con-trol shut down along with al-most all of the Federal Govern-ment, it falls to the states to

monitor influenza activity.Visitors to cdc.gov are greeted with:“Due to the lapse in government funding,

only web sites supporting excepted functionswill be updated unless otherwise funded. As aresult, the information on this website may notbe up to date, the transactions submitted viathe website may not be processed, and the

agency may not be able to re-spond to inquiries until appro-priations are enacted.”

No update is required to theCDC recommendation that

every child, woman and man over the age ofsix months be vaccinated for the flu every year,preferably by October.

Virginia and Maryland are both reportingconfirmed cases of influenza at a “sporadic”level. Since it takes two weeks for the vaccineto take full effect, now is the time to be vacci-nated if you haven’t yet had the shot.

Every year, 5-to-20 percent of U.S. residentsbecome sick with the flu, with 200,000 hospi-

talizations. Children are especially vulnerablewith about 20,000 children under the age of 5hospitalized. Depending on the severity of theflu in a given year, from 1976 to 2006, esti-mates of annual deaths ranged from 3,000 toa high of about 49,000, according to the CDC.

Remember that getting the flu shot is alsocommunity service. You might be strong andhealthy and think that you will not suffer toomuch if you get the flu. But everyone has con-tact with people in the high-risk groups: peopleover 65, children under 5, pregnant women,people with other illnesses. So have your shotto protect other people.

To the Editor:Eid is the Arabic word which lit-

erally means “feast, festival, orholiday.” Eid-ul Adha is celebratedon the 10th day of Dhul Hijjah,which is the last month of the Is-lamic calendar. This year the datecorroborates with Oct. 15 or 16 ofthe Gregorian calendar. The holi-day is celebrated by Muslimsaround the world in which theyare required to sacrifice an animalcommemorating the willingnessby Prophet Abraham to sacrificehis son, Ishmael.

Narrating the above incident,the Qur’an relates, “And when hewas old enough to run along withhim, he said, “O my dear son, Ihave seen in a dream that I offerthee in sacrifice. So consider whatthou thinkest of it. He replied, “Omy father, do as thou art com-manded; thou wilt find me, if Godplease, steadfast in my faith”(37:103)

Abraham was so obedient toGod that he did not hesitate a bitwhen he was asked to sacrifice hisonly son, whom God gave him ata very old age. Children are dear-est to a parent. The thought thatProphet Abraham was ever readyto sacrifice his son gives me goosebumps. But it was only a test fromGod and Abraham along withIshmael passed this test and

proved to God that they have trulysubmitted to His will. He did nothave to sacrifice his son in reality.It was only a practical demonstra-tion of his intention and prepared-ness to sacrifice his son. It elimi-nated the tradition of sacrificingof a son, which was a commonpractice carried out at that time.

In most Muslim countries,people sacrifice an animal on theday of Eid after they come homefrom the congregational prayer.The meat from the slaughteredanimal is divided in three parts,one for the poor, one for thefriends and family, and one partfor themselves. Although it is in-deed a day of celebration, we mustnot forget its origin. For most ofus celebrating a holiday meansgetting gifts, meeting families,putting on new clothes, and eat-ing good food, but we shouldn’tforget the real meaning of Eid-ul-Adha, that is, sacrifice.

We can make different kinds ofsacrifices. We can sacrifice ourtime or money, or both. We canvolunteer our time at various or-ganizations and donate money todifferent causes. We should keepthe spirit of sacrifice going thatmakes people and their faithsstrong.

Chantilly High To Present ‘Evita.’ate, authoritative, a bit self-centered, gen-erous and loving. “She’s charming, but canalso be manipulative,” said Mason. “She’sconfident, knows what she wants and iswilling to do what it takes to get it.”

Calling this part “a blast,” Mason said it’s“daunting because she was an actual per-son. So I did lots of research to see how shemoved and spoke. It’s the most dramaticrole I’ve ever played, and I like putting myacting skills to the test to take her from ages15-33. “

Her favorite song’s the iconic “Don’t Cryfor Me, Argentina,” which she sings whilewearing a huge, white dress and lookingdown from a balcony. “It’s a love song fromher to Argentina, and it’s touching and ex-tremely intimate — which she’s not knownfor,” said Mason. “So it’s interesting to seeher show her emotions and vulnerability.”

“Evita’s” such a dramatic show, she said,that “I think everyone will love seeing thisamazing spectacle. With the music, cos-tumes and scenery, it’s an epic-type produc-tion and a huge undertaking for high-schoolperformers.”

Portraying Che Guevara is junior MichaelMason (no relation to Amanda). “He wasan Argentine Marxist who helped organizethe Cuban revolution and Cuban MissileCrisis and was good friends with Castro,”

said Mason. “He’s an embodiment of thepeople, narrates the story and, somewhat,is Eva’s conscience.”

Mason said Guevara “criticizes Eva be-cause she’s not a great political leader andviews her as a hypocrite who doesn’t fol-low the ideals she says she has. So Che pro-vides his own view of what she’s really likebeneath the glamour and fame.”

He’s enjoying his role because “I get tobe sarcastic and mean and sing interestingand entertaining songs.” He likes his num-ber, “And the Money Kept Rolling In,” be-cause it’s “really high-energy, challengingvocally, fast and upbeat.” Mason said theshow has a variety of musical genres andthe audience will love every song.

Senior Austin Vassallo plays Juan Peron.“He was a military colonel who becomespresident of Argentina,” said Vassallo. “Hemeets Evita at a charity concert and falls inlove. He’s kind and for the people, and hefights for Evita when the aristocracy andmilitary don’t like her. He stands by her, hiswhole life.”

Vassallo said he gets “a sense of powergiving speeches to lots of people from abalcony. And working with Amanda is great— she’s really talented. It’s also my first,big role at Chantilly, so it’s exciting.” Hisfavorite song is “She’s a Diamond,” his mainsolo. “It’s when things are going bad, but

Juan stands by Eva when others aren’t,” hesaid. “I really get into that song and feelit.”

Vassallo called the story “powerful andmoving, with the revolution, and Eva’s riseto power is inspiring. And the big ensemblenumbers are awesome and fun to watch.”

Portraying Augustin Magaldi is junior Ja-son Saitta. “He’s the show’s ‘heartthrob,’”said Saitta. “Eva used men to make her wayto the top, and he was the first man with asubstantial amount of power that she didthis to. He’s a suave, tango singer and a re-ally sleazy guy.” “I couldn’t think of a bet-ter character to play,” continued Saitta. “Ifeel I can fit myself into his shoes. It can bechallenging, at times; but overall, it’s reallyfun.” He also likes his song, “On this Nightof 1,000 Stars,” because “it’s a tango andcomedic relief the way Magaldi over-exag-gerates as much as possible.”

Saitta also praised the show’s tech crew.Mia Rickenbach designed the set and, saidSaitta, “The attention to detail is incredible.She even has ‘Juan Peron for President’ post-ers.” Scenes take place inside a 1930s Ar-gentinian bar and the president’s mansion,plus on a balcony.

“And we have a great sound and lightcrew, plus hair and makeup people to pullit all together,” he added. “It’s going to bean amazing show.”

Centreville Day

By Bonnie Hobbs

Centre View

Get ready — the 21st annualCentreville Day celebration isalmost here. Slated for Satur-day, Oct. 19, in Centreville’s

Historic District, it features a parade, mu-sic, a 5K, live entertainment, crafts,children’s games and rides, food — who’sup for fried Oreos? — and fun for all ages.

“People should come to Centreville Dayto celebrate, relax and enjoy a great com-munity event,” said event Chairman CherylRepetti. “The Centreville Day PlanningCommittee makes a conscious effort to cre-ate lots of free activities that families canenjoy without spending a small fortune tokeep the kids entertained. We hope it alsoencourages people to patronize the busi-nesses in our marketplace and get an earlystart on their holiday shopping.”

ZOMBIE SLOUCHThe fun kicks off at 9 a.m. with the sec-

ond annual Zombie Slouch Family 5K FunRun and Walk, outside St. John’s EpiscopalChurch, 5649 Mount Gilead Road inCentreville. Race check-in starts at 8 a.m.at the church.

The event benefits the DC Candlelighters

Making Centreville a HometownCentreville Day Chairman Cheryl Repetti explains what Centreville Day means to her and why

local residents should attend.Pat Lawless, one of the people who founded Centreville Day, used to say Centreville Day helped

make Centreville a “hometown,” and I believe that’s true. That’s what this year’s theme is about,“Preserving the Past to Enrich the Future.” If you know the history of a place, it helps connectyou to it and helps make it “home” in a way that means more than the place you happen to sleepmost nights.

Like most people who live in Centreville today, I wasn’t born here; but knowing the history —and seeing the historic buildings and sites that are still here — enriches my feeling that this is myhome now. It lets me see more clearly my place in this community, now and in the future.

Centreville Day also celebrates the present and the future Centreville. It’s a great opportunityto come out and see and meet the folks who are your neighbors and are part of this community,even if they don’t live in your particular neighborhood.

It’s also a great opportunity to meet the businesses and organizations that work in the commu-nity. Not that we don’t welcome folks from all over, but there is a solid cadre of local businesses,local churches, crafters, home sales folks and so forth.

Similarly, at the Showmobile stage, you get to see a lot of local talent, mostly young people. Ithink it’s really wonderful to see how many young people and adults participate in the perform-ing arts, and it’s great to give them a chance to perform.

Many of those who live and work here help us organize Centreville Day. Come to the event andyou’ll see our Gold Sponsors, Greg and Christina Caldwell, handing out wrist bands for freechildren’s rides. But what you don’t see is that one of their employees, Cindy Ayer, comes to allour planning meetings.

Mark Reynolds at Sign-a-Rama not only makes our signs, he and his colleague Tom came outand put up the banner for us. Raul Berrios of RulyScapes bush-hogs the vendor parking area andhis daughter Sarah sings the National Anthem for us. The ladies at Alpha Delta Kappa, the gentle-men of American Legion Post 1995, Karen Waltman, Meg Crossett, Marla Gebaide, Jim Daniels,Ted McCord, our 18th century swordmaster, Charlie Anderson: these people come to our commit-tee and bring not only themselves and their skills, but their networks, and we build the day fromthere.

Organizing Centreville Day is a lot like those old Mickey Rooney-Judy Garland movies whereMickey says, “Come on kids, let’s put on a play!” All these people come together and work with acommon purpose and make it happen.

It’s a lot of work, and, because we want to make the day a success, it can be stressful at times;but it’s also — and this may sound corny — inspiring. And that’s what being part of a commu-nity, of a hometown, is: inspiring.

— Cheryl Repetti,

Chairman, Centreville Day

Zumbathon To Benefit WFCMFrom Page 5

we served 745 households with 24,000 bags offree food, and another 350 households with fi-nancial help. We hope the community will comeout for some exercise and help support their lo-cal nonprofit.”

And, added Bush, the need for help in the lo-cal area is quite significant. “It’s hard to believethat, in wealthy Fairfax County, around 70,000children and adults do not know where their nextmeal will come from,” she said. “WFCM works inour communities to give hard-working, yet strug-gling, individuals and families the support theyneed to catch up on bills and stay in their homes.”

But it’s such a huge task that WFCM can’t do italone. That’s why, said Bush, “We rely on indi-viduals, families, businesses, community groupsand churches to provide the volunteer and finan-cial support necessary to help our neighborsachieve financial self-sufficiency.”

It’s also why the Zumbathon means so muchto the organization. “Kelly is doing something re-ally important — and something we wish othersin our community would consider,” said Bush.“She’s taking something she enjoys and is pas-sionate about — teaching Zumba — and is turn-ing it into a way to raise much-needed fundingfor WFCM.”

Joedicke-Lawrence is looking forward to theevent, too. “Zumba is so much fun because youwork out to music,” she said.

“It’s like dancing, and you don’t even realize you’reworking out. And this event is for a great cause.”

I went to visit my father the other day –at the cemetery – September 23rd was hisbirthday. He would have been 94. I had notrouble finding him; he was in his usualspot next to my mother of course, alsodeceased. My father often joked about hiscemetery plot: he wanted an aisle so if hehad to get up in the middle of the night fora glass of water, he wouldn’t disturb mymother. Presumably, when I stand over hisgrave and blather on about stuff – mostregularly about my life living with cancer, Iam not disturbing him. I really don’t knowfor sure since I receive very little feedback.It’s always quiet there, other than when I’mspeaking. But I wouldn’t expect anythingelse; after all, it’s a cemetery. Libraries arenoisy by comparison.

My father has been gone now nearlyseven years, since December 2006. (Mymother died two years later, nearly to theday.) Hardly has he ever been forgottenthough. I was an extremely lucky child. Ihad a great father who was devoted to hisfamily: me, my brother Richard and mymother, Ceil. There wasn’t anything hewouldn’t do for any of us. I miss him terri-bly, especially during baseball season. Heloved the Boston Red Sox and was fortu-nate, unlike some others his age (born in1919) to have actually witnessed a WorldSeries Championship in his lifetime (1918was the last Championship until 2004).There are New Englanders who duringtheir particular 86 years of life (the actuallength of the “Curse of the Bambino”) – orless, never celebrated a Championship; hedid in 2004. With the Red Sox back in theplayoffs this year for the first time in fouryears, my father’s memory looms large;(heck, he was a member of a “knotholegang,” attending games as a child duringthe Great Depression).

And though I readily admit I haven’t hadany two-way conversations with him at thecemetery, I have had – and continue tohave, although less frequently than in pre-vious years, the occasional dream where heappears or is present somehow. I don’trecall any real interactions of late: touch-ing, conversing, interacting, etc. In thepast, however, there have been a fewdreams where there was definite acknowl-edgment of one another, touching even,and a feeling that our connection was stillintact. I don’t know that I feel anything likethat when I visit him at the cemetery now.But given the fact that he’s buried a fewfeet below where I typically – and respect-fully, stand (off to the side, actually), hisphysical proximity to me there almosttrumps the cerebral-type dream interac-tions that we’ve shared since his death. Iwouldn’t want to have to choose betweenthe two. I like experiencing both. I hope hedoes as well.

My parents are resting peacefullyapproximately 20 minutes by car from myhouse. And though neither one is still alive,they both live on inside of me. I don’t thinkI could have survived having stage IV non-small lung cancer (a terminal diagnosis) foras long as I have without their wisdom andencouragement – in life and in death. I’mlucky still.

NOVEC Warns ofEnergy Vampires

Electricity courses through wires inhomes, schools, and businesses just as bloodcourses through living creatures’ veins.While fictitious vampires materialize onHalloween and in “Twilight” movies, energyvampires are real. They can suck enoughelectricity to account for about 10 percentof a consumer’s electric bill. The NorthernVirginia Electric Cooperative says consum-ers don’t need garlic or wooden stakes tostop energy vampires — they need powerstrips.

According to EnergizeEfficiently, the av-erage American household has 40 devicesand appliances that constantly draw powerwhile in “standby mode.” These energyvampires include televisions, DVD and DVRplayers, video game boxes, computers, tab-lets, monitors, printers, “wall wart” charg-ers, AC adaptors, microwave ovens, anddigital picture frames.

How much phantom power electronicssneak depends on what the gadgets andappliances do. EnergizeEfficiently reportsthat a coffee maker uses only about one wattwhile a digital cable television box with DVRconsumes 44.6 watts when the DVR is notrecording and the TV is off. Consumers cansee power consumption for different elec-trical devices on the Lawrence BerkeleyNational Laboratory Standby Power Sum-mary Table. Consumers can learn moreabout wise energy use at www.novec.com/useitwisely12 and www.energizeefficiently.coop.

The colors of autumn are allaround as pumpkins andsquash fill produce stands

and leaves change from green toorange, red and yellow before fall-ing from their branches.

Local designers and tastemakersare unveiling home accents thatbring the warm hues of the sea-son into the home. Whether using pillows, throwsor flowers, adding the colors and textures of fall re-quires less effort than one might expect.

“Emerald green, orange and turquoise are threeof the biggest color trends we’re seeing,” said MarcusBrowning of European Country Living in Old TownAlexandria. “Throws and pillows are a given, but youcan also tie in traditional and modern accessorieswith rugs, stained glass lamps with modern or intri-

cate designs.”David Mitchell of David

Mitchell Interior Design in Wash-ington used a similar style con-cept at a McLean home recently.“Wooden bowls are a great wayto bring in seasonal accessories,”said Mitchell. “Pottery Barn haslarge, vintage, carved woodbowls that are great for a side-board or coffee table, and you canfill them with mini pumpkins toadd a dash of orange to a neutralspace.”

Ann O’Shields, of The Nest Eggin Fairfax, said, “Hand-blownglass pumpkins are extremelypopular and a great way to add aclassic touch of fall in yourhome.”

Make use of fall foliage both in-side and outside of your home,advises O’Shields. “Wreaths for

fall are abundant, featuring leaves and small pump-kins, and are a great way to set the stage for falldécor,” she said. “Mantel decorating … is an easyway to create a focal point for fall in a room. Addleaves, fall candles, pumpkins and more to liven upa room.” Incorporating the hues of fall into a home’sexisting décor can help welcome the season in style.“Bringing in the colors of fall will add warmth toyour home as the air gets crisper,” said O’Shields.

Decorating for FallLocal designersoffer suggestionsfor bringing theharvest into yourhome.

Ann O’Shields, of The NestEgg in Fairfax, says hand-blown glass pumpkins area great way to add a touchof fall to one’s home.
