BATTLEFIELD GREEN Private Wooded Cul-de-sac Lot Committee recommends high speed service without county taking financial burden By Jim Fields email@example.com Government involvement in increasing high speed Internet coverage in Hanover County has been recommended, but assuming the major financial burden to develop the service has not. Hanover County's High Speed Internet Committee submitted its report to the Hanover County Board of Supervisors last Wednesday. Committee members were appointed by the supervisors. Over the course of a year, the committee developed seven recommendations, which were presented on Feb. 8 by Mark A. Creery. The board decided to continue to review the committee's report, but did not set a date for additional discussion. In his presentation on behalf of the committee, Creery said the supervisors should designate a county staff person to oversee Hanover's high speed Internet issues. That individual could be a current employee taking on additional responsibilities until the workload became so great that a full-time person is needed to move the issue forward and stay abreast of vendors/service available.

"We're coming out of the recession and need to be proactive in positioning Hanover County to be successful. The county's leadership will have to make some bold calls as they position us going forward." While Gaskin talked about Hanover's positive features, including its education system and a lifestyle many business owners seek for their employees, he also addressed competitive disadvantages the county faces. "When a business owner wants to relocate to Hanover, we don't have a lot of product to show him," he said. "We don't have a lot of commercial buildings and land for development to offer. What we have is along the interstate corridors and that is where the county is committed to develop. "We also don't have a locality owned commercial business park. We have a couple of privately owned but none with all or partial county ownership." When a municipality, county or city owns a commercial business park, Gaskin said there are certain advantages in attracting business and industry. "Just think about the land for a moment," he said. "If a locality owns the land, they can give it away, sell it at a discount or fair market value to attract a business or industry. They have options. They can adjust to the marketplace to attract the jobs and industry to their community." Gaskin said the county can move forward with everyone working together. "The best kind of lead our office receives is what I call a warm lead. A warm lead comes from a business owner already located here. He calls our office and says a vendor of his is looking to relocate and gives us contact information. I'd much rather call or go see someone like that than make cold calls." Gaskin said tourism is one area the county should continue to develop, and he specifically noted sporting events. "When we have a family travel here because a daughter is playing in a softball tournament, they aren't going to spend all of their time at the softball field," he said. "We need to do a better job of giving them options of things to do and places to shop when they have free time and also find ways to keep them here longer and bring them back." "Tourists come here, spend money and don't vote," Gaskin said. "We love them." The breakfast series, held at Islamorada Restaurant at Bass Pro Shops in Ashland, is sponsored by Village Bank.

The purpose of the event is to help students improve their spelling, increase their vocabularies, learn concepts, and widen their knowledge of the English language. The winner of the regional competition will advance to the finals held in Washington, D.C., during June. Information submitted by Linda M.

Unfortunately, however, sometimes those who are elected to office find themselves facing financial dilemmas. In today's economy, Hanover County leaders are in an unenviable position. County administrator Cecil R. "Rhu" Harris Jr. and his staff are probably "knee-deep" in budget preparations. How the numbers will affect county operations have yet to be revealed. A certainty though -- at least in this writer's opinion -- is the need to protect our public safety services. No one wants to see other services impacted by the economy. But, the reality is that could be a possibility. With a new Board of Supervisors leading our county, we are confident members will continue to support the needs of our Sheriff 's Office, Fire/ EMS and emergency communications. Yes, every department is crucial to our success, but we can't lag behind when it comes to these critical services. It's imperative that someone answers if you need to call 911. It's imperative that an officer respond if you have a law enforcement need. It's imperative that Fire/EMS are en route if you are the victim of a fire, automobile accident or need transportation to the hospital. Again, this is not a dismissal of other county services. Your taxpayer dollars fund county operations. But -- and I don't have a crystal ball and I am not making any predictions -- the supervisors may have to look at some other services and whether they may need to be revamped. No one is suggesting elimination. It just seems realistic to consider what the seven-member board may have to do when they start working with the county and Hanover County School Board budget proposals. If you have thoughts on our budget process, participate in the public hearings, write a letter to the editor, help our county remain strong.

Wells learned on Friday that they will return on April 27 for a preliminary hearing. Wearing Pamunkey Regional Jail jumpsuits, Xavia S. Highsmith, 18, of the 2000 block of N. 28th Street in Richmond; Da'von T. Byars, 19, of the 1400 block of Mechanicsville Turnpike, Richmond; and Kevin M. Drayton Jr., 18, of the 8300 block of Rollins Lane in Mechanicsville; also have been charged with malicious wounding and the use of firearm in the commission of a felony. Wells was shot on Jan. 21 at a residence in the 7300 block of Verdi Lane in Mechanicsville. Court documents identify Highsmith as the shooter in what an investigation by the Hanover County Sheriff 's Office called a prior arrangement made to buy marijuana from Wells. "However," Sgt. Chris R. Whitley said, "the intention of the susp e c ts was never to purBYARS chase the marijuana. Rather, they intended to steal it. As a result, a physical altercation ensued during the transaction, which led to Wells being shot once in the chest." As the three fled the scene, another shot was fired, striking another male. He was treated for a non-life-threatening injury at VCU Medical Center. With their attorneys by them, Highsmith, Byars and Drayton appeared before Judge P.L. Trible on Friday in Hanover General District Court. They looked around the gallery as they entered the courtroom before turning to face the judge. Afterwards, outside the courtroom, Brett's mother Shannon was surrounded by family and friends. "It was hard, very hard to come here today," she said. "It was real hard to watch them come into court and look like nothing had happened." Wells DRAYTON also said she would attend future proceedings. She was wearing a T-shirt that had Brett's photo on the front and a poem he wrote on the back. A prayer vigil for the five homicides that recently occurred in Hanover County was scheduled for the following day at Pole Green Park. Brett's mom said they would be available for $10 each, with all of the donations going to the families of those violent crime victims. When asked if he would seek to have client Highsmith tried separately, attorney William J. Viverette said, "I don't know at this point. I'll have to evaluate the evidence after the preliminary hearing before we make any deci- Luxton, respectively. sions about how to proceed." Wells was a student at Atlee Byars and Drayton are High School. Editor Melody Kinser conbeing represented by attorneys Linwood Wells and John tributed to this article.

The pilot program would be in the eastern and western parts of the county. A participation agreement with 80 percent or more of the citizens of a defined area would be created. The county would then work with various providers to determine what combination of services could be furnished and what it would cost to supply the service. Creery said a precedent has been set for special tax districts in the county for services such as recycling. It also was recommended that the county make resources available to keep people informed about the current state of high speed Internet options, including current public wireless hot spots. The committee also recommended the use of the annual paperwork required by the school district to help map Internet availability. The county could partner with the school division to solicit Internet-related information that would help teachers prepare their curriculum to accommodate a student's access to high speed Internet and it would also give the county mapping information as to what areas are being served by what Internet speeds. Another recommendation was to continue to support the Internet growth and access needs of the Pamunkey Regional Library. It also was recommended that the county continue to use standing or ad hoc citizen committees to study specific issues that can help grow and expand Hanover's high speed Internet capabilities. The final recommendation was to have the county continue to research grants and state/federal funding opportunities designed to extend high speed Internet access to more citizens.

She said she thought Jackson "was a little skeptical, but he still gave me a `yes'." Being in front of judges is nothing new to Brittany. She held the titles of Miss Hanover County and Miss Greater Richmond. The latter sent her to the Miss Virginia Pageant. In the state competition, Brittany was fourth runner-up among 31 contestants. "I won scholarship money that helped pay my college education." She also said the experience "was a great way to use my community service to help others." For her community service platform, she talks about building positive relationships. She said that theme stemmed from her work with Big Brothers Big Sisters. She has been a featured speaker in schools in the Richmond area. Brittany said she was a victim of bullying when she was in middle school. That influenced her decision to encourage positive relationships. When she talks about bullying, she said she focuses on how it happens and how to handle it.

Standing in a semicircle on the edge of the football field, some bowed their heads, others held hands and even clutched one another, and almost everyone cried. Lee Mitchell, a member of Hanover Evangelical Friends Church in Mechanicsville, led the surface by reading scripture and Lisa Wright then read a poem. Ed Vinson, a pastor at Hanover Evangelical Friends Church, said the first prayer and, as he finished, invited anyone in the crowd to also pray. Several people spoke and asked for guidance, sympathy and peace. The group also recited The Lord's Prayer. Kenny and Cathy Crowe attended the service to show support for the community. "We are members of the church putting on the service," Kenny said. "We are here to pray for and support the families of the victims, our community and church." The idea for the service was Mitchell's. "I was talking to some friends recently, and we wanted to do something but didn't know what to do. Then at church, Pastor Vinson talked about the power of prayer, and we decided to try and have a prayer service." Information about the service spread through Facebook and, at one time, more than 500 indicated they would attend. The victims were: Jyreffe P. Clark, 17, Dec. 17; Brett A. Wells, 16, Jan. 21; Madison R. and Caroline R. King, 3, Jan. 28; and Sarajane Hakopian, 44, Jan. 30. Robert D. King, 40, took his own life after killing his twin daughters. when your heart needs a second chance Jim Fields/The Local Shannon Wells wraps her arms around her husband Darrell as prayers are said during Saturday's prayer vigil at Pole Green Park. The service was held to bring the community together to pray for and console the families and friends of the victims of recent violence in Hanover County. Brett Wells, Darrell and Shannon's son, died on Jan. 21 from a gunshot wound. Vigil organizer Lee Mitchell, below, prepared to address the crowd. Bon Secours can help.

John Libby named among world's brightest young students John Libby, a student from Mechanicsville, recently was honored as one of the brightest young students in the world at a national awards ceremony for gifted children sponsored by The Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth (CTY). The Center honored John, one of 50,000 participants in the 2011 CTY Talent Search, for his exceptional performance on the college SAT or ACT. Among the more than 700 U.S. and international middle school students invited to the ceremony on the Johns Hopkins University campus: All earned exceptionally high scores on at least one section of the college SAT or ACT. At least 87 achieved a perfect score on the reading or math section of the SAT or ACT. These exceptional students earned this opportunity for recognition by participating in the annual Talent Search organized by CTY (www. cty.jhu.edu). Since 1979, CTY has annually sought the most academically able elementary and middle school students, and encouraged their enrollment in CTY's annual Talent Search. In 2010-2011, more than 50,000 students from 50 states, the District of Columbia and countries including China, South Korea and Canada participated in Talent Searches offered through CTY. Students enrolled in the Talent Search tested through the fall and spring. John, a student at Chickahominy Middle School, is part of a select group. Chosen from more than 14,000 seventh and eighth grade testers around the world, honorees are selected because they have scored the highest on either the SAT or ACT � the same tests taken by collegebound juniors and seniors. Abovegrade-level tests, taken independently JOHN LIBBY from the pressures of mandated assessment, provide useful information to students, families and schools, giving a clearer picture of students' academic capabilities. Students honored at the 2011 Grand Ceremony also have qualified for CTY's residential summer programs, online classes and family academic programs, where gifted students meet others like themselves from all over the world and have an opportunity to stretch their creative and intellectual wings, and discover where their special talents may take them.
