www,journalpress,com n&i00q]L00e00 DO is Aladdin oil lamp was ptirchased on December 20, 1920, by the grandfather of a local lady. Remarkably, it has survived with all of its original parts,including the 27-page instruction booklet that gives detailed information on caring for the lamp. The back page of HENRY LANE the booklet has HULL the warranty made out in th purchaser's name. The Aladdin Mantle Lamp COmpany is perhaps the most fmous maker of American oil lamps. Victor Johnson founded the company in Chicago in 1908, and produced the first lamp in 1909. In 1949, the company moved to Nashville, TN, and in 1999, Aladdin Industries sold the lamp division to the Aladdin Mantle Lamp Company, now located in Clarksville, TN. The firm has produced a wide variety of oil lamps, of which this one with the classic drape motif of the shade is a prime example. I showed the pictures of the lamp to Bill Cunningham, Virginia's greatest oil lamp authority, and am pleased to report that he was duly impressed, especially by the original paperwork having survived across three generations. The lamp is typical of the Aladdin production of the early years. Parlor lamps continue to be in demand, and they sell well in both the auction and estate sale venues, as well as in antiques shops. This one is worth $350, with a significant part of the value coming from the booklet. The overall design of Aladdin lamps endures, and this one would sell well, but its most appealing attribute is its survival in the same family over the past 94 years. In 1920, someone had a nice Christmas present; one which has carried on for almost a century.

Brown. Rep. Wittman hails Co:almunity Care Clinic RICHARD LEGGITT The King George Community Care Clinic held its grand opening Saturday with a crowd of officials, employees and citizens on hand to celebrate the new health care option for residents of the area. Congressman Rob Wittman was among the speakers. "One of the things we face in this country today is the challenge in rural communities to create access to health care" Wittman said. "If there is not access in rural areas, people have to travel great distances. And those distances are an impediment to them seeking care" The Saturday event was officially a dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony for the new not-for-profit clinic, which opened its doors four months ago on February 3, and has been well received in the community. The clinic is open 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. "We have a lot of debate in this country about what health care should be about, about how we should create access;' Wittman said. "But at the end of the day, health care is about communities. Communities understand how to help fo.lks." "Community health care is about making sure we understand how to bring practitioners together, and how we bring extenders together to provide a safety net, a fabric of care that is critical" Wittman said. Wittman praised King George resident Arlene Jacovelli for her work in establishing the new not for profit community care clinic, as well as Journal Publisher Jessica Herrink. 'rlene has done a spectacular job with this project, as has Jessica" Wittman said. Herrink, Jacovelli and other private donors provided over $25,000 in medical care vouchers to citizens this past month. "The blessing and dedication ceremony marks another major milestone to each of us who have worked to make the Community Care Clinic a reality" Jacovelli said. Bishop E.W. Jackson cut the ribbon at the ceremony. "What we are witnessing here is doing something about an issue that is real, that is substantive," Jackson told those gathered for the ceremony. "Not just talking about it, but doing something about it" In addition to Congressman Wittman and Jackson, other speakers included King George Commonwealth's Attorney Keri Gusmann, Pastor Sherman Davis and Dr. Brian Josephs. Dr. Josephs is an Ob/Gyn with a thriving Fredericksburg-based practice who is partnering with Herrink and Jacovelli to bring specialized women's healthcare services to King George and the surrounding area. Drs. Roberto Canizares and Roosevelt Dean, the Care clinic physicians were at the ribbon cutting as was Dr. Michael Costa, who recently joined the practice. In addition to its othervital medical services, the Community Care Clinic offers a blood draw laboratory, operated by AtheroTech, for patients of the clinic and to the walk-in public. The lab can draw blood for testing at Mary Washington, Quest, LabCorp, or any other lab. Other new services featured are a United Allergy clinic for allergy testing and non-invasive immunotherapy treatment, as well as a sleep study program. According to Jacovelli the clinic is currently in negotiations to add an orthopedic doctor, cardiologist and other specialists. The Community Care Clinic now takes most insurarices, including Medicaid, Medicare and most recently added TriCare Prime, United and Optima.
