The museum's famous Second National Confederate flag, known as the "Chew" flag, has recently undergone a process of conservation and re-mounting conducted by Textile Preser- vation Associates, Inc of Keedysville, Md. The purpose of the reception was to recognize a group of dedicated men and wom- en who had donated the funds necessary for the conservation project. The presence of Mr. Ware, and the association of his family with the "Chew" flag is an integral part of the flag's his- tory. The last color bearer of Chew's battery was a collateral an- cestor of Mr. Ware, Private Nimrod Anderson Ware, of Summit Point. In the waning months of the Civil War, "Nim" Ware was invalided out of the conflict, with unspecified wounds. Return- ing to his home, he took with him the cherished flag of Sutart's Horse Artillery and packed it away safely. Ultimately, Nimrod Ware succeeded in his ambition to become a doctor, achieving his diploma from the University of Maryland in 1868. He ap- plied for and secured a position as ship's surgeon on a steam- ship line, plying between Yokahama and Nagasaki, Japan. Sadly, Nimrod's life was brief, and in 1872, he died in Naga- saki at the age of 26. For nine years his few possessions were stored in the United States Consulate in Nagasaki. Finally, Nimrod's trunk was returned to America in 1881, sailing on the S.S. Richmond, and the family was notified that their rel- ative's personal effects were in Winchester, awaiting collec- tion. Hoping that these effects included the Horse Artillery flag, Colonel Chew offered to pay the shipping costs necessary to remove Nimrod's trunk from the depot. Among the items listed on the Consulate form signed for by John Fisher Ware was "one silk flag, Confederate Artillery." Other items signed for by John F. Ware, included a painted and decorated tin document case containing Nimrod Ware's medical diploma, an ivory napkin ring and the official ship- ping document complete with envelope. All of these items, to- gether with a photograph of Dr. Ware, have now been present- ed to the Jefferson County Museum, to be placed on display beneath the flag. The museum extends its heartfelt apprecia- tion to Mr. Burwell Ware for his generosity in donating these unique family treasures. 2005 PONTIAC 2005 ~)NTIAC 2005 2005 PONTIAC VIBE VlBE VIBE SUNRRE F~,AT,~, PS, I~, ~flty W~ #8~1 AM),AT, AC, P& ~, Utility Wag~ #8216 III~P $19r~18 NOW NOW NOW SAVE $17,800' $17,996' 2005 PONTIAC WMIAm for 6O mo. w/o $1000 rebate 2005 2005 BUICK 2005 BUICK 2005 BUICK CXS LACROSSE LACROSSE AT, E,P& PS, PW,~211 AT, AC, PS, PB, PW,~153 AT,~, PS, PG, PW,~197 MSRP $24970 MSRP $33,725 MSRP NOW $25,9W)* SAVE SAVE SAVE SAVE 14 6gC $1EB ~, ~!'~ ,i ~'~i ~idii!idiii!i!~iU~ '04POHflAC 4](4 Cab gdi ygq FWg UtilityWqon - HONTAHAVAH 12 otns latlol~,~lW, Til 15, #1171A '02 GMC ENVOY if.

They are both called Vega. Brilliant, white Vega, the star, is close to the Earth, only 26 light years distant. It is used as a reference star for and as a reference for stellar brightness. Its magnitude is precisely 0.0. A ring of dust veils this luminary, and astronomers believe that planets may b ing there. Vega "starred" in the well-crafted, 1997 science fiction thriller, "Contact," as the origin of the alien message transmission. I believe guised in human form, are actually living amongst us in Vega, Texas. The evidence seems to be overwhelming. Last year, billboards along 1-40 with reco creatures announced that Vegans were welcoming tourists. These same signs were absent this year. Unfortunately, I failed to take pictures. But this year I did ter. I ventured into their town. It was noon and no one was in sight. Suddenly, four Vegans disguised as male teenagers appeared in a red Ford pickup. "Clever," But they acted strangely. They waved and smiled sincerely before they sped down a bumpy range road. "Cows," I thought, "They must be after cows." But there i Returning home, I told my wife I wanted to stay overnight in Vega. We saw signs for the Vega Best or Bates Western Motel. We were driving too fast too She said, "NO--Too Deserted"! So we passed the town with its single humongous grain elevator. Fifteen miles down the road at the Wildorado exit. my Saturn denly died. Saturn of Amarillo said it was a short in the computer wiring system, but I knew better. The Vegans had done it. Pictures online! www.astronomy.
