Gowen lost his life in a singlevehicle crash. Gowen was scheduled to graduate on Saturday with the 2010 class of Patrick Henry High School. According to Capt. Michael J. Trice of the Hanover County Sheriff 's Office, the Montpelier teen was killed at 1:22 p.m. Friday on Elmont Road, just north of Hanover Avenue. Gowen was pronounced dead at the scene. A 17-year-old passenger was transported to an area hospital for medical treatment. The preliminary investigation, Trice said, indicated that the vehicle was traveling north on Elmont Road and ran off the right side of the road. Then an over correction caused the vehicle to veer off the left side of the road and ultimately overturn. Both occupants were ejected. No seatbelts were utilized. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Coty," Trice said, speaking on behalf of Col. V. Stuart Cook, Hanover County sheriff. ackedricks? Cr B Cracked Bricks? Bowed Walls?

Considering the location and the age of the house, you were able to successfully sell it for me in a reasonable length of time. The real estate market at that time was low, yet you successfully found a pre-qualified buyer and everything went as smoothly and effortlessly as possible. Your staff was very professional and kept me apprised on a weekly basis of what had transpired in reference to the property. I could not have asked for a better business relationship than that which I had with you and your staff. Kudos to Seay Real Estate. Thanks for everything and you can be assured, if I ever need my present home sold, you will be the ONLY agent I would consider. Kindest personal regards to you and your staff. Sincerely, Margaret F. Daw Chad Seay Recognitions top School Board agenda By Melody Kinser email@example.com Faculty and students took center stage on June 8 when the Hanover County School Board recognized accomplishments and honors. A day before, Erin Beard, a teacher at Henry Clay Elementary School, was surprised with the announcement that she had been named Hanover County Teacher of the Year. The Support Employee of the Year is Jim Triemplar, Atlee High School and the Beginning Teachers of the Year are Austin Beazley, Cool Spring Elementary; Crystal Winn, Oak Knoll Middle School; and Jaime Deitz, Patrick Henry High School. Lucy Cantrell of Hanover Arc introduced the winners of the Special Aide Award and the Raby Recognition awards (3 Rs Award). Rhea Buchan was recognized as the Special Aide Award recipient, while Jacob Kenney and Domenico Bonaccorsy received the Raby Recognition Reward Awards for Students and Teachers, respectively. (Their nominations and subsequent wins were spotlighted in the June 9, 2010, edition of The Mechanicsville Local.) `Lizzie Powell of Patrick Henry High School was honored for winning her third state championship in the pole vault. She beat her own state record on June 5 at the Group AAA Outdoor Track Meet. She has been a Hanover Scholar, maintained a 4.1 grade point average and is a member of the National Honor Society and Beta Club. A cancer survivor, Lizzie is honorary cochair of Relay for Life. She plans to attend Virginia Tech. Special recognition was given to Paul Vecchione, assistant superintendent of student and support services, who is retiring on June 30. A resolution paying tribute to the longtime educator noted his "professionalism and dedication to his students and to the school community as an educational leader and role model for colleagues." The man who usually leads the cheers when it comes to honoring others found himself in the spotlight. Stewart D. Roberson, superintendent, was recognized by John F. Axselle III, chairman, and Ashland District representative Sue Forbes Watson. Since Roberson was "good gushing about other people," Watson said, the School Board "decided that he needed to have some recognition because of his leadership as chair of the board of Leadership Metro Richmond. This year he has done an outstanding job as chair of that organization that is celebrating its 30th year." Former and current members of the LMR filed into the meeting room to join in honoring Roberson. "What you have assembled is huge," Roberson said. "We do have a common bond and that is LMR servant. Leadership is what it's all about � we're taught to gush about others and make sure others know that you appreciate what they're doing." He also said "I appreciate the time these very, very busy people committed to come here. When I look at the group, I'm reminded of the bond that we do have." Atlee High School student Andy Hesse is the recipient of the American Association of the Teachers of German, in cooperation with the German governmental agency, the Pedagogical Exchange Service (PAD). He is one of only 39 students this year from across the nation. The award is based on high achievement in a nationwide German testing program administered by AATG. Andy will spend three and a half weeks studying this summer in Germany. South Anna Elementary School's Destination Imagination (DI) Team won the state tournament on March 27 at Western Albemarle High School. The winning team, consisting of sixth fifth-graders and one second-grader, competed in the improvisational challenge called Do or DI. By demonstrating creativity and teamwork, the team created a skit within a seven-minute time frame about something in danger of extinction. Members also competed in an instant challenge in which they had to solve a problem and present a solution while being watched by the judges. Due to their success in the state tournament, the students competed in the DI Global Finals in Knoxville, Tenn., on May 26-29. They finished 26 out of 54 teams. Team members are: Caroline Brown, Isabelle Giorgis, Clara Giorgis, Emily Hubbard, Anna Rose Iverson, Elizabeth Mazza and Jean Woodrum. Their coach is Ryan Giorgis. Matt Schroeder, a senior at Atlee High School, received a Congress-Bunderstag scholarship to study abroad in Germany for a year. The exchange is sponsored by the United States Congress and the German Bundestag through the U.S. Department of State. As one of 250 scholarship recipients, Schroeder will live with a German family as an exchange student, attend a German high school, and meet with German and American government officials during his year abroad. He also will have the opportunity to tour the country and attend various cultural activities with other CongressBundestag scholars. Twenty Hanover County students were selected to perform in the All-Virginia Band and Orchestra and Chorus. They are: Chase Glover, Atlee High School, All-Virginia Orchestra; Matt Nichols, Atlee High School, All-Virginia Band; Drew Bridwell, Atlee High School, All-Virginia Band; Ben Davis, Hanover High School, All-Virginia Band; Samuel Westrick, Hanover High School, All-Virginia Band; Bethany Gilbert, Lee-Davis High School, All-Virginia Band; Brandon Lane, Lee-Davis High School, AllVirginia Band; Chris McDonough, LeeDavis High School, All-Virginia Band; Cara Webb, Lee-Davis High School, All-Virginia Band; Carmen Dodl, Patrick Henry High School, All-Virginia Orchestra; Bradley Rogers, Patrick Henry High School, AllVirginia Orchestra; Daniel Gonet, Patrick Henry High School, All-Virginia Band; Kory Arkwell, Hanover High School, AllVirginia Chorus; Joel Goodloe, Hanover High School, All-Virginia Chorus; Chris McGraw, Hanover High School, AllVirginia Chorus; Madison Sorah, Hanover High School, All-Virginia Chorus; Lauren Williams, Hanover High School, AllVirginia Chorus; Kelly Renee Eckert, LeeDavis High School, All-Virginia Chorus; Cameron Gordon, Lee-Davis High School, All-Virginia Chorus; and Heather Mentz, Lee-Davis High School, All-Virginia Chorus.

The Mechanicsville Local June 23, 2010 5 OPINION | The Local Views From the editor Giving the gift of life We have heard the cry so many times in recent years -- and many, thankfully, heed the call to donate blood. Received an e-mail last week about bloodlifeline.com, an initiative launched by Virginia Blood Services to bridge the gap between the commonwealth's donors and the need for blood. This program makes available "real-time updates about blood, plasma and platelets needs and shortages to donors based on their individual blood type." By visiting the site, Virginians can keep blood here and help their neighbors in need. Through bloodlifeline.com, you can: Schedule a donation. Sign up for mobile and e-mail alerts of specific blood types whenever there is a local shortage. Subscribe to the "Need Feed," a Twitter feed broadcasting specific blood needs in Virginia. Because of elective surgeries and accidents associated with summer activities, the need for blood increases this time of the year. On Thursday, there was an immediate need for O-, O+, A- and B-. So, whether it's through Virginia Blood Services or the Greater Richmond Chapter of the American Red Cross, you can make a difference this summer by donating blood. Information about the Red Cross can be found at www.redcross.org. We've all heard it, now we can live it: Give the gift of life.

Member FINRA and SIPC. of freedom, and, of course, the "taxpayer funded bailouts." I agree with a concern about the bailouts by the way: I think that those Wall Street pirates at Goldman Sachs have proven they really didn't deserve our money, but that financial planner may disagree with that. What is really confusing for me, though, is point 2 of the TP mission: "Discover, promote, and elect individuals who support our goals of limited government, lower taxes and strict adherence to the Constitution." Neither this, nor TP mission point 1 or 2, have anything to do with climate change denial. The TP types are either about taxes or about denying climate change. Two separate issues that are not really connected. Sure, the market-based plan of Cap and Trade http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ Emissions_trading includes utility taxation but that has much less to do with climate change than something like mountaintop removal of coal. As a Christian living in a community having public debates about crosses on public land, I just wonder what is truly faithful to God in this TP move- ment. The singer Jimmy Buffett says that, "There's a big difference between Saturday night and Sunday morning." Maybe the TEA Party folks are fine to give lip service to caring for their neighbors on Sunday while the rest of the week trying to strangle government to the point of not helping anyone, even those most in need of that support to move from need to sustainability. If that's the case, it's a shame because we can all agree that we need true government reform at the state and national levels but it's irrational to believe that all of government is bad. In any event, it would be helpful if someone would ask the TPers to limit their dumping and keep the trash off my lawn. Doug Smith Mechanicsville Consider what oil provides This letter is in response to the many letters about oil, oil dependency and the BP spill. First, I agree with most people who say we need to explore alternate forms of energy such as wind, solar, water and even nuclear (though most people leave that one off). However, when people want to "move away from oil," I wonder if they've really thought about what oil provides? For example, I typed this e-mail on a computer, while dressed, next to my phone, near some photos I have, after taking some aspirin for sore muscles, prior to brushing my teeth, while drinking orange juice from a clean cup, sitting on a chair, in my painted room, and before getting in my car and driving to work. All of these things we use on a daily basis, and hundreds more, are made from oil. http://www.ioga.com/ Special/PetroProducts.htm. One writer said that the oil spill doesn't protect our standard of living. Really? How? As far as I can see, oil has not only made life easier for us (outside energy) but for most people in the world. And as for energy, the U.S. is always blamed for being overusers of energy, 5 percent of the population using 25 percent of the world's oil. However, as 5 percent of the world's population, how much of the world's wealth and economy do you think we represent? Since World War II, we've been from 46 percent to 30 percent of the worlds GDP. I think that explains why we use so much energy: Making other nations richer. So, again, I agree we need to find alternate forms of oil, and this BP spill highlights our need to drill carefully, but let's not throw the baby out with the bath water. People think nations like Brazil have abandoned oil for sugar cane. Not true, they're a huge oil user and producer. We need to be careful with oil, for sure, but its net result has been more wealth and a higher standard of living. If we stop using oil, it will negatively affect the U.S. and developing countries in the world.

This is due mainly to the Route 360 being called Mechanicsville Turnpike extending into Henrico County. If there is some way to change this name please help me to gain support. If you agree, thank you. Evan Smith Mechanicsville Excellence in education I recently attended my daughter and son's end of year awards ceremony at Chickahominy Middle School. I must say that I was over- whelmed at the number of awards presented to these young men and women in the areas of: Excellence, Honor, Character and Service, not to mention the huge number of individuals that achieved perfect attendance, or were on the honor roll or the principal's list. I think these achievements speak volumes as to the outstanding educational system we have in Hanover County. As a father, I wish to express my sincere gratitude to Debbie Arco and the entire staff of Chickahominy Middle School for all the positive influences and knowledge you provide to our children. D.C. "Weet" Baldwin Mechanicsville Tea Party message clear elections indicate the impact the "Tea Parties" have in getting their candidates elected. These events have got to have all incumbents shaking in their boots. The messages of the Tea Parties are clear: no more bailouts, stop the spending, no more taxation without representation, stop the destruction of our economy, America needs jobs, etc. "Tea Parties" support and continue to support candidates that reflect American principles and values as given by our Constitution and God. The Progressive Left has no clue as to what that means! In other words, the "Tea Partiers" are fed up with a corrupt far-left Congress that never listens to their constituents. Case in point: The horrendous Healthcare Bill that passed anyResults of recent primary way in spite of 70 percent of all Americans that voiced their emphatic objections to this bill. Furthermore, Congress's fanatical spending has resulted in a $13 trillion-plus national debt, which, if not stopped from growing by 2012, will surpass America's GDP! This would be an economic disaster! President Obama's solution was to appoint a five-person "Debt Commission" to analyze and manage the national debt. Isn't it laughable that each of these persons, who each get paid $50,000 of our tax dollars per year, are operating at a deficit?! And speaking of wasteful spending, did you know that there is $2.6 million allocated in the "Stimulus Bill" to help get alcoholic Chinese prostitutes rehabilitated?! Give me a break!!! Tea Partiers have worked very hard and long to get the results indicated in the aforementioned elections. Some have worked so hard that they may be in danger of burnout. All I can say to them is to never give up until the job is done. You have the momentum going for you as well as the blessings and wishes of all Americans. The Bible says, "What ye sow, so shall ye reap." God Bless the Tea Parties and God bless America. Gary Allen Colonial Heights The people from Richmond My wife and I attended the Hanover County Board of Supervisors meeting on May 12. We were there for the award ceremony and the proposal Say Goodbye to Varicose and Spider Veins! on the upcoming change to the noise ordinance. We also wanted to hear the details on the proposed GRTC route to Mechanicsville from Richmond. As it turned out, it was the event of the evening. Ed Via, the chairman of the board, led the questioning of the GRTC representative. I was appalled at some of the questions that he asked. He questioned if the bus driver would be making additional stops between Richmond and Mechanicsville. He also asked if the driver would count the number of people from Richmond to ensure that they all would get back to Richmond. This line of questioning suggests that perhaps the chairman is very concerned about "people from Richmond" coming into Mechanicsville. It also causes me to wonder why he is so worried about the passengers on the bus getting back to Richmond. Was Mr. Via asking these questions out of genuine concern for their safety in Hanover County? Clarence T.

R-MC joins health MECHANICSVILLE COINS care consortium The Council of Independent Colleges in Virginia (CICV) announces the formation of its newly created benefits consortium, designed to keep health care affordable. Randolph-Macon College in Ashland is among the founding members of the Council of Independent Colleges in Virginia Benefits Consortium Inc. CICV, an association of Virginia nonprofit private colleges, formed the program after studying similar efforts in a handful of states where private colleges have formed similar consortia. CICV is the only organization in Virginia authorized by the Virginia General Assembly to operate a self-insured plan of this type. "This unique partnership shows that private colleges are serious about health care cost containment and good stewardship of tuition dollars and contributions," Robert Lambeth, CICV president, said. "Quality employee benefit plans also serve to attract the best faculty and staff to private colleges in Virginia so that we can continue to provide the finest liberal arts education available anywhere in the country." Twelve CICV colleges united after eight years of research and planning to form the consortium.

Each year he participates in the graduation ceremony by calling each graduate's name. "Jim calls each name and ensures that each child has that special moment," colleague Susan Hughes said. "He is even able to make sure that the names are in the correct order even when the students are not." Alicia Carter, senior teacher at Atlee, said he is one of the first to arrive and last to leave each day. "Both on and off the track, he has nurtured many young men and women," she said. "He is quite comfortable conversing with students and parents alike. The students know that he respects them as individuals. He models such a caring, fair and respectful manner throughout the building with everyone." Each year the school district recognizes a Support Employee of the Year. The program was initiated by the Superintendent's Classified Advisory Committee to recognize outstanding employees whose contributions support and enhance the instructional programs in the school district. Parents, students, and employees may nominate support staff members for this award each year. Full-time employees who are members of the support staff at individual schools, in a central services department, or the transportation department, and who have been employed by the school division for 24 months or more, are eligible for nomination. 12 institutions, the consortium can achieve more flexibility in medical plan design, enhanced benefits, more effective cost controls, greater presence in the health care marketplace, and the stability that comes with being part of a larger risk pool. The consortium will be able to use the extensive data available to a self-insured program to gain a better understanding of health care issues that are driving costs and help member colleges mitigate those costs. In addition to lowered insurance costs, the consortium board is committed to reducing demands on the health care system through the implementation of wellness programs. Working together, the 12 colleges can share resources and best practices to design programs that will have a real impact on the overall health and well-being of their campus communities. KSPH, a Richmond benefits consulting firm, provides consulting services to the consortium. After extensive research and a competitive bid process, the consortium contracted with Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield to administer health care coverage for 2010. Anthem brings a strong network of providers and claims management experience to the consortium. The benefits consortium has recently hired Tim Klopfenstein, FSA, CERA, as executive director. "Consortium members are to be commended for their bold achievement in bucking the national trend of relentless increases in health care costs," he said. "We are well positioned to offer the benefit packages our participants value most highly at the lowest possible cost." Klopfenstein has a master's degree in actuarial science and prior experience in the health insurance business. Prior to joining the consortium, he held positions with Genworth Financial, Healthcare USA, and Gen-America Financial. In addition to RandolphMacon, the following institutions are the founding members of the Council of Independent Colleges in Virginia Benefits Consortium Inc.: Bluefield College, Bridgewater College, Emory & Henry College, Ferrum College, HampdenSydney College, Hollins University, Lynchburg College, Mary Baldwin College, Roanoke College, Sweet Briar College, and Virginia Intermont College.

Erin Jones For The Mechanicsville Local "It took my bait!" came a shout from across the pond. On the nearby dock, a boy started to chant, "I caught another one!" as he jumped up and down smiling from ear to ear. It was a perfect day to skip school and go fishing and for 15 lucky Hanover County students that was exactly what they got to do. The National Guard's Virginia Counterdrug Task Force held its end of the year "Hooked on Fishing, Not on Drugs" event Tuesday, June 15, at the Courthouse Park in Hanover. Students from Pole Green, Laurel Meadow and Kersey Creek Elementary Schools participated in this year's "Hooked on Fishing, Not on Drugs" mentorship program. It is one of many programs used by the VACDTF's Drug Demand Reduction section to provide drug abuse education to citizens. DDR is a support program for community-based organizations, Master Sgt. Daniel Dolen, a community outreach non-commissioned officer with DDR, said. "We do drug prevention education, mentorship programs and leadership development. Basically, anything that will help keep kids off of drugs." The "Hooked on Fishing, Not on Drugs" concept was started in 1986 went a Florida teenager wrote to the Future Fishermen Foundation about how he chose to go fishing and think through his problems instead of using drugs. Since then, it has become a nationally recognized program offered in more than 30 states, the District of Columbia, American Samoa and Puerto Rico. Nine years ago DDR decided to adopt "Hooked on Fishing, Not on Drugs" and develop it into a long-term mentorship program. Dolan said he hopes that more schools will participate in the future. The schools send DDR a request for the "Hooked on Fishing, Not on Drugs" program and identify the kids they feel will be a good fit, he said. Sometimes they pick children that will be good role models, other times they pick a child that is quiet or one that has more energy than others. Once the parents give their permission, DDR starts to meet with the kids for an hour 7989 Dominion Park Drive Beautiful 3-BR, 2.5-BA Colonial on large lot with fully fenced backyard.

Due to the `maturation' of Stephanie as a runner, she also developed leadership skills few young people can match. In the Emerging Leader class here at school, Stephanie is Ms. Munchel's most dependable leader. Stephanie obviously distinguishes herself in many areas, always demanding excellence in herself and others. In my 23 years here at Lee-Davis, I have found few that could match her leader- ship skills and character." In addition to the scholarships, the Ruritan Club handed out checks to local and fire departments and rescue squads.

First, on Saturday, June 26, the public is invited to visit the church site that figured prominently in the Civil War story of Rural Plains and offers interpretation about these events. A local living history unit that has faithfully partnered with the Foundation in an effort to maintain the appearance of Polegreen's newly enhanced site will offer several free programs for tourists, Civil war enthusiasts and families.

One artillery unit often portrayed is the Richmond Howitzers, who in 1864 were forced to fire on Polegreen Church after Union soldiers took up sharpshooter positions in the church. Today, the modern gun crew of the Richmond Howitzers is giving back what the original gun crew was forced to take away. The proposed Civil War program schedule is: 10 a.m. camp opens. 11 a.m. Historical Overview: Battle of Totopotomoy Creek.

Provides funding for the Route 164 Median Rail project in Hampton Roads administered by the Virginia Port Authority. Provides special program funding (enhancement, congestion mitigation and air quality, and regional surface transportation). Rail and public transportation funding in the SYIP is similar to levels in the revised Fiscal Years 2010-2015 SYIP. However, these levels represent a 10 percent decrease from the SYIP adopted by the CTB in June 2009. The state match for eligible capital expenses is 56 percent, and 36 percent for operating expenses, the lowest in Virginia history. Public transportation investments focus on key priorities such as the state of good repair, capacity expansion and security and technology enhancements. Rail investments focus on priorities outlined in the Rail Resource Allocation Plan and advancement of passenger rail demonstration projects in the Interstate 95, Interstate 81 and Route 460 corridors. VDOT budget VDOT's overall budget for FY 2011, also adopted by the CTB last Wednesday, totals $3.32 billion. This represents a 1.6 percent reduction from the $3.38 billion Revised FY 2010 Budget. It reflects the impacts of transportation revenue reductions in recent years, including closing VDOT offices, reducing staffing and other streamlining efforts. The budget for FY 2011 includes $1.7 billion for VDOT highway maintenance and operations, as well as locality street maintenance payments, and $984 million for construction. VDOT's administration and support services program has shrunk to $217 million (6.5 percent of the VDOT budget, an 8 percent reduction from the previous budget). "We continue our concerted effort to become a leaner, more efficient, more focused agency," VDOT's acting commissioner Greg Whirley said. "This has been a challenging year for VDOT as we have reduced staffing, closed offices and scaled back on many of our administrative programs, but you can see that we are able to realize a significant cost savings see PLAN, pg. 30 A 113 Year Tradition of Caring consultation.

DeVonte Spurlock is distributing letters asking for donations to help him and his mother Cheryl "get a small place here in King William, Va." He said they must move out of their current residence "before the end of July because the landlord is selling the land and my mom's maid service is not doing too well and the bills are piling up." "We cannot move out of the county because I want to attend the Chesapeake Bay Governor's School and I have to stay in the county to go there," he added. The 14-year-old said he is a long-time honor student and will be attending the Governor's School for the remainder of his high school years. He is a student at King William High School. DeVonte said the Governor's School "gives me the opportunity to explore science (biology) and math in a college-like environment. These classes are very SPURLOCK advanced and only a few people are accepted." As he looks to the future, DeVonte is interested in pursuing a career in architecture, photography, videography, special effects or directing.

The View From Here Hanover Evangelical Friends Church � 730-9512� www.friendlychurch.org Iran's Gaza Gambit By Pastor David Crisp, Senior Pastor wo weeks after the Israeli raid on a predominantly Turkish flotilla to Gaza became an international incident, Iran has announced that it will send its own flotilla to the blockaded territory. Unlike Turkey, which had formerly been one of Israel's most important allies, Iran has always been openly hostile toward Israel. The "plight" of Palestinians has long been a useful justification for the leadership in Tehran, which seeks to provoke Israel and increase Iranian influence among Arabs. Some worry Iran could send a naval escort with the aid ships, thus raising the possibility of violence. So what can we expect to result? The talking heads of world-wide media are expressing various opinions: he French Press Agency reports that the U.S. is worried about Iranian action, "The United States on Monday questioned the Iranian Red Crescent's decision to send aid ships to Gaza, saying Tehran's intentions toward the Palestinian territory were not `benign.' ... The Iranian Red Crescent announced Monday it would send three ships with humanitarian aid to Gaza, in the latest bid to break the blockade imposed on the Palestinian territory by Iran's arch foe Israel." n the other hand, Newsweek's Mark Hosenball dissents, "U.S and European officials seem surprisingly relaxed about news that Iran is sending its own seaborne challenge to Israel's Gaza blockade. ... despite concern that the Iranians are sending the ship in a deliberate attempt to provoke the Israelis and worsen already severe tensions in the area, European and U.S. officials say Tehran actually seems to have dialed back some of its rhetoric and threats for the moment." oes Iran really want a violent confrontation, or just attention? The Christian Science Monitor's Scott Peterson writes, "Analysts say that Iran's reaction � including Ahmadinejad's repeated reminders that the Islamic Republic has championed the Palestinian cause since the 1979 Islamic revolution � is designed to recapture from Turkey part of its self-declared role as the regional bastion of militant resistance that fights for the oppressed. ... If Iran were to send such a flotilla, it would likely steal the limelight back from the Turks only in the event of a similar confrontation." Iran analyst Ali Nourizadeh tells Voice of America, "I think the whole matter is just a propaganda game. Iran knows that the Israelis would not allow them to get close to Israeli territory and even the Egyptians would not welcome them, and that the Iranian parliamentarians have to obtain visas to go to Egypt and I do not think the Egyptians would welcome such a delegation. Iran lost the propaganda game to Turkey and they now just want to show that they are there." hile there may be some wisdom to be gleaned from these media men, here's what I think: (after all, this is "The View From Here...not the view from there!) The prophet Ezekiel revealed thousands of years ago, that following Magog's (Turkey's) leadership, we will soon see "Persia (Iran), Cush (Sudan) and Put (Libya) ... all with shields and helmets" (Ezekiel 38:5). By itself, Turkey, who launched this blockade-running game, is a formidable and powerful nation, but what will Israel and the western world do when, as the Bible predicts, Turkey leads a military coalition that includes Iran, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Sudan and several other nations as well against Israel? The options then will be quite limited, to say the least. But with whatever option He chooses, Jesus is ultimately going to defend Israel. Hopefully, the U.S. will be on the right side of that battle. I would suggest our best response is to start praying. (1 Peter 4:7) T T O D 417-6721. You must sign up in advance. (FREE).

He lettered in several sports. He was a killer pitcher. He was named first team all-state on a team in which future baseball hallof-famer Al Kaline only managed to reach the second team. He had offers of full athletic scholarships from the University of Maryland, the University of Virginia, George Washington and the University of Georgia. But on the day he returned home from a trip to Georgia and announced to his mother that he was heading south to play for the Bulldogs, she told him, "No, you're not, son." Then she handed him his draft notice. In the waning months of the Korean War, the Army had plans for Porte � the infantry. But Porte had designs of his own. If college baseball was out, so was foxhole excavation. Porte joined the Air Force instead, and the nation's youngest branch of the armed forces would take him on a path to capture some of the sports glory the service had selectively denied him. Porte was trained as an airborne radar and radio technician and in 1954 he was posted to Tachikawa Air Base, near Tokyo, Japan, where he soon met "the greatest bunch of guys I ever played with." Many of the bases had baseball teams. Tachikawa was no exception, and Porte tried out as soon as he was able in March 1955. However, Porte was not alone. One hundred fifty tried out for just 26 positions on the Red Devils' squad, but eight of those were already claimed by players returning from the 1954 team. Porte made the cut as a utility outfielder and relief pitcher. Even so, he was going to have to work to get much playing time. The team was loaded with professional ballplayers: Joe Dugan of the St. Louis Cardinals organization, Keith Kelley of see TACHIKAWA, pg. 43 Photos provided by Dan Porte Above: The 1955 Far East Champions Front from left: Don Keller,Dan Porte,Sam Serio, Jack Sherman Mgr., Joe Navaarro, Randy Fledt, Joe Dugan.

The third outing of the Greater Richmond Golf Classic will not only have more competing professionals but more events for the fans as well. As Goochland County's largest homebuilder, Eagle Construction of Virginia has signed on as sponsor of the $100,000 tournament and hopes to build upon the solid tournament foundation created over the past two years. "I'm just so happy that we were able to participate in keeping professional golf here in Richmond," said Eagle Construction president Bud Ohly. From a youth, through high school and college, Ohly has spent 37 years on the links and said sponsoring the event was a natural step considering he and Bryan Kornblau, Chairman of Eagle Construction, first met on a golf course. "Golf and the community here locally has been a big part of our lives and our success." Because the Richmond Golf Classic is now the only remaining professional golf tournament in the state of Virginia, Ohly felt it important that the Richmond area retains its ties to the event. "If we don't keep one it's going to be tough to get them back," he said. "As people start to compete for these events as the economy improves, you're going to be looked at as somebody who gave it up instead of somebody who kept it going. Considering how professional sports have lately struggled in the Richmond area, Ohly wanted to make sure that golf did not follow suit. "It's extremely important to keep that tradition going," he said. "We've had professional golf in Richmond, I guess, gosh, it started in 1965 with the PGA at what's now Belmont, continued with the Seniors Tour over at Hermitage, went on to the Nike Tour at the Dominion Club and this has got to be what it is that keeps it going." And keeping the event going is important because the Duramed Tour utilizes the tournament as a means to serve the community. From last year's Green theme, the Richmond Golf Classic switches colors this year, taking on the American Heart Association's "Go Red For Women" campaign. All proceeds from ticket sales will go to cardiovascular research for women, an area that File photo by Charlie Leffler/The Local This year's Richmond Golf Classic will boast a $100,000 purse and bring a record number of competitors to the Richmond Country Club in August. The improve the fan experience, there will be 17 events throughout the course of the week, capped by the players drive to attain their LPGA cards in the tournament itself. AHA's Michelle Nostheide indicated is lacking in funding. "Unfortunately there's not enough," she said. "A lot of the research is for men and we know that the warning signs are different and the treatment is different (for women)." Because heart disease is the national's leading killer of women, Nostheide said there is a natural synergy between golf and the campaign. "There's so many things with a healthy lifestyle that you can do to prevent heat disease and stroke," she said. "Obviously a partnership with the LPGA is perfect because golf is a lifelong sport that can keep women active and really prevent heart disease from ever coming up." And when it comes to the golf itself, drama will be added to this year's tournament as the Richmond Classic will be the second to last tour event. So, much like NASCAR's "Race for the Chase" at RIR, the pressure will be on throughout the week as the players make a final push to qualify for the 2011 season. "That means a lot of players who are striving to get their LPGA cards will be playing pretty hard here at Richmond Country Club in order to play well and place well," said Michael Vajda, LPGA's Director of Tournament Business Affairs. The Richmond Classic has quickly become one of the players' favorite stops on the tour, so much so that Lisa Meldrum may return to defend the title she won last year despite already holding her LPGA card. In its third go-round, Vajda hopes that the event has now established itself with Richmond golf fans. "In tournaments like this, I think the first couple of years, people are curious to see what it's about," he said. "I think we've gotten past that stage." With 17 planned events this year, Vajda hopes the fan base continues to grow. The week of golf will include a Junior Clinic, two Pro-Am tournaments and a Go-Pro Fashion show. This year's Meet the Pros party will be a casino night event where golf fans can mingle with the pros in a casual atmosphere. "We try to build a number of ancillary events around the tournament for people to come out and participate," Vajda said. "We feel that by offering these things it's more than a golf tournament, it's more of a happening." Other than the tournament itself, the most highly anticipated event will take place on Thursday when RCC hosts the final round of the Sun Mountain Skills Summit Challenge where players will compete in a variety of skill and trick shots for the see GOLF, pg. 43 42 The Mechanicsville Local June 23, 2010 TACHIKAWA Continued from pg. 40 the Brooklyn Dodgers, Randy Feldt with the Chicago White Sox, Don Keller with the New York Yankees, and George Robinson, who had played in the Appalachian League. Early that April, the team boarded a flight to Clark Air Base in the Philippines for spring training. "It was miserable rain the year it began," Porte said of the weather in Japan at the time. "That's why we went to the Philippines for spring training, because the weather was so bad in Japan. We had to get out there � we were working in the gym and couldn't get out on the field. In the Philippines, we could practice early morning, and late afternoon. The team "We fell apart in June or shaped up that way." The weather affected the July," Porte said. "I guess the beginning of their season � their other teams got a little bit betdidn't first two games were rained out ter and we and had to be made up at the end of the season. The Red Devils lost the first game they actually played, but then won 10 straight. They had a solid grip on first place in the Air Force Northern Japan League until summer came. improve enough to handle it, that's all. Either that, or our pitching staff fell apart." By mid-August, Tachikawa was tied with Yokota for first place in the Northern Japan league. Both teams had two makeup games with Shiroi. The Red Devils won both of their games, while Yokota won only won. The Red Devils, with a 24-8 record, had claimed the championship, a game ahead of its nearest competitor. They advanced to the Far East Air Force championship at nearby Johnson Air Base. For that tournament, they had to pare down their roster to 17 men. Again, Porte made the cut. Tachikawa won the FEAF tournament, despite the fact that t h e y were nearly upset by a competitor. F i n a l l y, they played in the Air Force World-wide championship at Donald-son Air Force Base in South Carolina. Their success ran out. After a one win and two losses, they returned to their home base at Tachikawa. Porte played again next year, but the Red Devils were no more. The Tachikawa team had been combined with a team from a nearby base. The new team likewise 1955 photos provided by Dan Porte made it to the Air Force world- Rodney Brown of Richmond wide tournament, and again fell played for the Tachikawa short of a world title, but the championsihp team in 1955. 1956 team didn't hold the magic that inspired one team member, Tom Pickard, to call Porte about organizing a reunion in 1990 � 35 years after their first championship. Last spring, the survivors, families, and fans celebrated the team's 55th anniversary in the Hampton Inn in Glen Allen. Several generations of Porte's family attended � Porte; his wife Grade; and their daughter Patti, a Mechanicsville resident. "I loved playing with these guys," Porte said. "It must have been due to the fact that we were all in the Air Force together � the camaraderie, playing on the field and growing together, as men, really." GOLF Continued from pg. 42 Congratulations Minors Congratulations Terps championship. "It's basically a "Big Break" type of scenario where amateurs will get paired with professionals," said RCC golf pro Mathew Schulze. "The majority of players in the Big Break, that starts next week, will be here because most of them are Duramed FUTURES Tour players." Like Ohly's plans to maintain professional golf in area, Vajda hopes that the success of the Richmond Classic continues to build through this year's tournament and on into the future. "Richmond's been a great market for us and we hope it continues for years to come."

Stone Designers And Craftsmen CELEBRATING 100 YEARS IN THE RICHMOND AREA 2010 Graduation Remarks Stewart D. Roberson Superintendent of Hanover County Public Schools On behalf of the Hanover County School Board, it is my honor to bring a few remarks this morning. Graduates, it's a pleasure to join you for today's celebration of your accomplishments on a day that we will honor 1400 graduates of Hanover's schools. Usually, I speak to the graduating class as the Superintendent of Hanover County Schools. But today I'm going to change that up a bit as I speak to you, mainly, as a parent of a graduate in the class of 2010. Seriously, I hope I'll say a few things that the parents sitting in the audience might say if they were standing at this microphone in front of you. First, and most importantly, we love you. It's hard to describe how special it has been to watch you grow up right in front of our eyes. And it seemed to happen in just a minute. One day we were trying to figure out how to put your infant seat in the car correctly as we brought you home from the hospital; later, we were strapping you into your own car seat; then, you were mastering the independence of riding a bicycle; and then, we were giving you the keys to the car. You've been thinking about this graduation ceremony today for many years; but we've known it was coming for even longer. You see, when we put you on that first school bus thirteen years ago you thought of it as the beginning; but we knew it was the beginning of the end. We knew that once you boarded the bus you were growing up and nothing we could do would stop it. So, here we are, today, finishing what we saw coming over thirteen years ago on that very first day of school for you. Next, know that we are proud of you. We know the work that went into getting here. We brought you milk and cookies as you pored over that big project; we bought you crayons to finish that important poster board; and, we even wrote a few excuses so you could go to school late after a long night of last minute work. We bought and sold items for your fund-raisers and bought magazines and wrapping paper from your school clubs. We watched your ballgames, your performances, and your concerts and each time, no matter how many people there were around you, it was always you that we watched. Sometimes we even embarrassed you by waving and calling out your name. Please know that we're happy for you. Assistant Superintendent of We know that today, like so many other parts of your senior Instructional Leadership, year, is something you've been anticipating for a long time. Hanover County Public Schools And we have, too. In fact, some of us began thinking about today when we Good morning, graduates, parents, faculty, and friends. It named you � practicing exactly how your full name would is my pleasure to bring you greetings on behalf of the Hanover sound as you walk across the stage to get your diploma. We're happy that you had the chance to enjoy so many of the things you've looked forward to in school. Finally, we are also a little sad. Forget all of those things we've been telling you about renting out your room when you're gone or the extra space we'll have in the driveway without your car. The truth is we're really going to miss you...even your clutter...your loud music...your friends in and out the front door...the late nights waiting to hear the door open by curfew...your frantic text messages wanting to know how much you have in your always dwindling checking account... Your graduation will leave a hole that will take a long time to fill. The silence at home will be a constant, truly tough reminder that you aren't with us. BUT, we know there is, still, lots of good stuff ahead. This time YOU might see this ceremony as an end � the completion of your K-12 education. But WE know it's really the beginning of the next phase of your life � another good, exciting, and fulfilling phase. Ahead there may be more schooling, military, work or marriage..., your own houses and our grandchildren, perhaps... So, enough of that already. You've probably gotten tired of all of our lectures over the last eighteen years or so, too. "Don't touch that." "Drive carefully." "Would you jump off a cliff, too, just because everybody else was doing it?" "What happened to that little angel I saw at your baptism?" "Finish your vegetables!" "Life is about choices, you can't do it all." "You can be anything you want to be." One of our primary jobs as a parent has been to care for you, to make sure that you were safe, nurtured, and guided in a healthy manner. The lessons we learned together, like the YMCA Y-Guides teachings many of us experienced together as parent and child will hold true throughout our lives. We will be, as they say at the Y: "Pals Forever" and "Friends Always." I guess it's enough to say that we have loved being with you as you made this journey during your years of school. Ever since you could talk, every time we got into the car for a vacation or a family journey, as kids it seemed you asked the same question before we were even two miles from home � "Are we there yet?" Well today, as far as your journey through high school is concerned, I can tell you. "Young men and women, we are there!" And the trip was even better than we thought it would be! Congratulations!... and thanks for bringing us along. 358-9174 YOUR HAS YOUR CLASS RING We're here to offer you the best price, service and selection on the class ring of your choice.

You remind me of a lot of the smart, young people I know: Doogie Howser, Malcom in the Middle, and Donatello of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles." -- Seth McFarlane as character Peter Griffin from "Family Guy," Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, 2006. "And if someone does offer you a job, say yes. You can always quit later. Then at least you'll be one of the unemployed as opposed to one of the never-employed. Nothing looks worse on a resume than nothing." -- Stephen Colbert, Knox College, Galesburg, IL, 2006. One, Inc. Congratulations Class of 2010! You've earned it! 5533 Mechanicsville Turnpike www.collision-one.com A little humor can often make graduation speeches enjoyable, memorable and quite entertaining. Many times major universities will rely on celebrity comedians or other individuals to add some laughter to commencement day. Here are some humorous quotes from speeches throughout the years. "The real world is not a restoration. If you see people in the real world making bricks from straw and water, those people aren't Colonial re-enactors. They are poor. Help them." -- Jon Stewart, The College of William and Mary, Williamsburg, VA, 2004. "As most of you are probably aware, I didn't graduate from Harvard. In fact, I never even got a call back from admissions. Damn you Harvard, damn you!" -- Will Ferrell, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, 2003. 804-746-3230 Remarks Continued from pg. 2 County School Board and our Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Stewart Roberson. I would like to begin by offering my congratulations. To the class of 2010, congratulations on achieving this milestone, this rite of passage called high school graduation. To your parents and other loved ones, congratulations on making it through the other rites of passage which have come before today's: the first day of kindergarten in 1997, the first A, the middle school experience, 9th grade, the first date, the driver's license, prom. Parents, thank you for allowing those of us in the school system the opportunity to work your children. They are special young men and women who have taught us, perhaps more than we have taught them. We are fortunate to have each of you join us today to celebrate this wonderful milestone in each of these young people's lives. Since middle school � for some of you since elementary school � each of you has been anticipating this moment � coming to school every day, studying hard, taking challenging courses, working part time, volunteering, praying � in anticipation of high school graduation. So, for the past 13 or so years, you have prepared for this moment. Well, gradu- ates, the moment is here... So now what? I'm sure the immediate plans include celebrations and perhaps tears, but after that, what's next? When we reach huge milestones, it is sometimes easy to dwell on our past accomplishments and to rest on our laurels and accolades. It's at times like these when we begin to believe we've done all we need to do. Graduation day aside, I'm sure your post high school plans are at the forefront of your minds � college for some of you, work for others, and for still others, military service. As you complete this chapter of your life, I encourage you to keep looking ahead and moving forward. Don't think of your life in the past tense; think of it in the future tense. What you have accomplished is not nearly as important as what you have the potential to accomplish and what you will accomplish. How will you serve your fellow man tomorrow? How will you be a leader among your peers tomorrow? How will you demonstrate character every day of your life? It's not about what you have accomplished; rather it is all about what comes next. Please know that our hope for you is that you will make every next step in your life greater than the one before. Congratulations, graduates!
