STOPS AT EVERY HOME IN TOWN

After the storm: regrouping By JimFields jfields@mechlocal.com Like a bad country song, Irene came calling Saturday, and when she said “Goodnight,” she left property damage not seen since her first cousin Isabel visited in

September 2003. Power lines came down, trees fell, and roof shingles and siding flew off homes. As of early Monday afternoon, Dominion Virginia Power had restored power to 600,000 of the 1.2 million customers that

lost power. “We have 6,000 people working to restore power and expect to have 90 to 95 percent of those who lost power back on by Friday,” said Rodney Blevins, vice president see IRENE, pg. 4

AAA bond rating Safety No. 1 priority on Tuesday may be at risk HCSO focus will Superintendent By JimFields jfields@mechlocal.com

Hanover County’s AAA bond rating may be in jeopardy. That’s what members of the Hanover Board of Supervisors learned last Wednesday. Deputy County Administrator Joe Casey reported that last month Moody’s listed Hanover AAA rating as under review for a possible downgrade. “Earlier this month, Moody’s modified the county’s rating status to negative outlook, which means it could be downgraded over the next one to two years,” Casey said. Every AAA county in Virginia, including Henrico, as well as the state, got the same

bond rating notice Hanover did. “All of this is happening because of the federal government’s debt/budget crisis,” Casey said. He said one of the reasons Hanover has a AAA rating is the county is not that dependent on the federal government. Casey cited several reasons for Hanover not being dependent on the federal government, including: ❍ Only 170 federal workers live in Hanover (.4 percent of our workforce). ❍ Few Hanover employers rely heavily upon federal contracts.

22 STREET TALK Residents share experiences of the earthquake.

Ashland Police join in nationwide crackdown on impaired driving The Ashland Police Department has joined with nearly 10,000 law enforcement agencies across the nation in support of “Driver Sober or Get Pulled Over” impaired driving crackdown, which started on Aug. 19 and continues through Sept. 5. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 10,839 people died in alcohol-related crashes in 2009.

The number of alcoholrelated fatalities has decreased, but the statistics are still too high. “All too often, innocent, law-abiding people suffer tragic consequences and loss of a loved one because of this careless disregard for safety of others. You will see the Ashland Police officers night and day proactively enforcing traffic laws and impairing driving” Chief Douglas

Goodman said. In Virginia, it is illegal to drive with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 gram per deciliter or higher. On average, there is a fatal crash every 48 minutes across the country; one-third of those involve a driver or motorcycle rider with a BAC that is above the legal limit.

IRENE

“We had trees and power lines down, people without power, and 21 roads are still blocked. There were 60 houses that suffered tree damage and 10 were destroyed.” Most of the houses destroyed were in the Mechanicsville and Black Creek area. “We had several houses destroyed by trees falling on them,” he continued. “The trees were so big that they just split the houses in half.” Jones said there were no serious injuries, but some people were transported to Memorial Regional Medical Center as a precautionary measure. Two of those transported were overcome by carbon monoxide Monday morning as a result of an emergency generator they were using at a home on Midnight Drive. They had signs consistent with exposure to carbon monoxide, including flu-like symptoms and were extremely lethargic. “They’re lucky to be alive,”

Jones said. “They had lost power at their home because of Irene and were using a gasolinepowered generator to supply electricity. The generator was placed outside an open window, and the exhaust fumes were carried inside the house.” The county is dispensing free ice and bottle water at Cold Harbor Elementary School and Montpelier Civic Center. There is a limit of two cases of water per family. Plans are to give away ice and water through at least Friday. Hydrants also are open at Patrick Henry High School and Cold Harbor Elementary for residents needing water for farm and other animals. “Our emergency response teams, fire and sheriff ’s office all responded well to Irene,” Hanover County Administrator Cecil R. “Rhu” Harris Jr. said on Monday. “We had extensive preparation before she arrived, including bringing in extra paid and volunteer help. It was all worth the effort.”

“As of this time,” Harris said, “we have some roads and streets that are impassable. As far as I know, we had some homes destroyed and property damage but no fatalities. I believe those people transported for medical reasons were only minor problems.” Across Virginia, four deaths were caused by Irene, including an 11-year-old boy in Newport News who died Saturday when a tree crashed through his apartment. The Town of Ashland made it through Irene in good shape. “At the height of the hurricane, I believe we only had about 20 percent of the town residents without power,” said Ashland Town Manager Charles W. Hartgrove. “We have a couple of streets with downed power lines blocking them, and we are waiting for the power company to come clear the lines so we can reopen the street. All in all, Ashland came through Irene in pretty good shape.”

❍ We have received few stimulus funds and receive a relatively low amount of funding for human services. ❍ Many local governments that are not under review have far greater numbers of federal workers, businesses with federal contracts and/or receive higher direct federal funding.

The ratings likely will have no immediate effect on Hanover because no further debt will be issued by the county this fiscal year. Neither Standard and Poor’s or Fitch, the two other primary rating services, has issued comments on Hanover’s existing AAA rating. “The county’s debt payment is structured to be paid off quickly,” Casey said. “Rating agencies like that, and it increases our ability to issue debt. When debt is

issued, the county doesn’t defer principal payments, which remain level throughout the debt’s term.” Despite the status change by Moody’s, Casey said he believes Hanover will maintain its triple AAA ratings. He cited the county’s long-term, conservative financial plans as a key reason. Casey also pointed out that housing values had remained high in the county and foreclosures low.

OPINION | The Local Views From the editor

No, it wasn’t the washing machine Surreal. That’s probably the best word to describe the earthquake that shook our area last Tuesday. This writer was in good company at the time though. I was with a crew at the Doswell Volunteer Fire Department, Station 4. Was about to wrap up an interview with a firefighter who, as a member of the U.S. Coast Guard Reserves, was in New York City days after the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. When the building began to shake, one of the men said, “Who’s washing clothes?” An immediate response from another was “That’s not the washer. It’s an earthquake. The whole building is shaking.” OK, one of us (yes, it was me) was stunned. The men rose to their feet to assess the situation and, being the professionals they are trained to be, kept their composure as they started making calls — or attempting to — to check on their coverage area. The status of their family members — just like the rest of us — was a priority too. Finished the interview, got a photo of the firefighter, and got in the car to head back to Mechanicsville, not knowing what to expect along the way. Head was spinning with the possibilities — and cell service was sporadic due to the overload of calls. Driving Interstate 95 was just like any other day. Traffic was moving smoothly. Having crossed the San Andreas Fault Line with a good friend who lives in Southern California several years ago, you just don’t know what to expect. Speaking of the friend in California, she was the first to send an “Are you OK?” text. Seemed ironic at the time. She has experienced a swaying chandelier in her dining room as the only sign of a quake. Upon returning to Mechanicsville, it was time to get to work. Facebook activity proved what an impact social media has on our lives today. We solicited your thoughts/comments on the situation and you responded accordingly. We do appreciate how you embrace The Local in that regard. Despite the Hurricane Irene issue, there just seems to an increased vulnerability when the earth moves. Melody Kinser

Letters to the Editor

Redistricting plan has three senators representing county By Jim Ridolphi For The Mechanicsville Local Virginia’s recent redistricting altered Hanover County’s political landscape, and the county is now represented by three state senators. The Hanover Business Council hosted the trio at its regular meeting Thursday at Randolph-Macon College. Longtime Hanover Sen. Ryan McDougle, R-4, was joined by Sen. Walter Stosch, R-12, and Sen. Donald McEachin, D9, at a breakfast meeting spon-

sored by the Greater Richmond Chamber’s Hanover Business Council. Even with the recent news that Virginia will end this budget year with a surplus, all three senators said the sluggish economy is still forcing lawmakers to make tough choices and continue to search for cuts in state spending. McEachin, a longtime Democratic leader in the Senate, acknowledged his views might differ from the majority of Hanover voters. He said that’s not neces-

sarily a bad thing. “I think I need to hear different voices,� he said. “While I dare say the vast majority of you are not Democrats, your opinions and voices are welcomed and my door is always open.� The senator represents the Ashland area of Hanover, something he requested in the recent redistricting process. “You were not assigned to me. You were adopted by me,� McEachin said, referring to the Hanover districts represented

U.K.’s problems a wake up call To see what becomes of a society that doesn’t make social issues a priority, we need only to look toward the U.K. After days of riots, looting and violence, officials in Britain are desperate to bring stability back to the region. And Prime Minister David Cameron says the best remedy is a moral one. “This has been a wake-up call for our country. Social problems that have been festering for decades have exploded in our face. We have been too unwilling for too long to talk about what is right and what is wrong,” Cameron said. “We have too often avoided saying what needs to be said, about everything from marriage to welfare to common courtesy.” He traced the collapse to “Children without fathers. Schools without discipline. Reward without effort. Crime without punishment. Rights without responsibilities. Communities without control. Some of the worst aspects of human nature tolerated, indulged sometimes even incentivized by a state and its agencies that in parts have become literally demoralized,” the Prime Minister said. It’s a shame that it took such widespread unrest to bring people to this conclusion, but the important part is that they’ve arrived. We can only hope that both Democrats and Republicans do the same. As for those in the GOP who want to focus exclusively on the economy, if Republican leaders go wobbly on social issues, America could just as easily end up just like England. Walt Fitzhugh Hanover

forth an amendment to a bill that would have required all girls entering the 6th grade to receive a vaccine against the HPV virus. This amendment allowed parents to “opt-out” of the vaccine, giving them the authority to make their own decision regarding their child’s health. By offering this amendment, Del. Peace maintained that parents are responsible for making important decisions that affect their children’s well being. I am proud to have a delegate with a legislative record that protects the principles of life, marriage, parental authority, constitutional government, and religious liberty. Del. Peace has proven his dedication to Virginia families, and I hope that residents of the 97th District will continue to allow him to serve us as our delegate. Melvin Adams King William

I’ve been happy to see some reasonably balanced political cartoons in the past few weeks in The Mechanicsville Local, given the generally Conservative orientation of the paper. A recent cartoon with a caricature of Nero (as the Tea Party) fiddling while the country burns shows an important potential end if rational minds do not prevail in the Republican Party. To that end, I strongly encourage all of my Republican friends, most of whom I certainly consider to be rational, to vote. A recent newscast reported the figure given for Republicans who approve of the Tea Party to be under 25 percent. Frankly, I’d be thrilled to see perspicacious, conciliatory nominees who could actually be a good president if elected on both sides, rather than candidates who would certainly further polarize this country. But the nominees who go to the general election will be elected by the majority on each Why do you call me a hateside only of those who actually monger? I do not hate anyone go vote. nor do I advocate hate toward Dr. Charles W. West any one or any group. I have Mechanicsville given no misinformation in my letter. My point is just as valid as yours.

be genetically defined and different in certain individuals, directly related to their environment, and other studies looking to find genetic causes for why people commit infidelity? There are studies to find genetic causes for pedophiles and what about studies to find genetic causes for alcoholism or drug addiction. The studies go on and on but with no conclusive answers! Science has not found the cause of homosexuality. People continue to look for “answers” because they do not like the true answers they already know. There is no comparison between human beings and animals. It would be like comparing the proverbial apples and oranges. Therefore, this statement has no validity. Saying that some animals may be homosexual does not make it fact. Are there biological studies which prove that animals can be homosexual? How can we prove it in animals when we cannot prove it in man? Animals perform all kinds of behaviors that I do not expect human beings to do and visaversa. Even having learned classification of species in school, I do not believe that man is an animal. The Bible says that mankind was made a little lower than the angels and higher than the rest of creation. Is this something new for Christians? No it is an original Biblical truth. The Scriptures tell us that when Adam and Eve sinned, Sin entered the world. And that all creation suffers because of man’s sin. God created the animals as good, they do not sin. Even though many animals at this point in time are not human friendly that does not make them bad. They are also subjected to how sin changed the creation. But all things will be made right when Christ returns to our world. Now if you want to see LETTERS, pg. 14

by his office. McDougle needed no introduction. The Lee-Davis High School graduate, businessman and prosecutor has a long relationship representing Hanover both in the Virginia House of Delegates and the Senate. McDougle told the group he is a strong supporter of businesses, both large and small, in Virginia, and focuses efforts on creating a positive environment for their success. That includes examining regulations and procedures that may be overburdensome. “I’m extremely concerned about some of the issues coming down from the federal government that Virginia is forced to deal with, eventually changing our regulatory process to comply with that,� McDougle said. “We’re working to try to lessen the burden on businesses, but I think it’s one of the things we are struggling with in Virginia because it’s a difficult task.� The effects of those battles impact every business and citizen in the long run, according to McDougle. Stosch told the group he was a reluctant entrant into the political arena.

The Greater Richmond Chamber’s Hanover Business Council hosted the three senators who represent the county following the redistricting.

With a distinguished career as a CPA with a substantial business in the city, he entered political life at the urging of former Gov. John Dalton, whom Stosch described as his mentor. At Dalton’s insistence, he agreed to serve two years in the House of Delegates. Thirty years later, Stosch said he’s still serving out of a sense of civic responsibility. “What happened in between, I found out that ordinary people like me could make a difference,� he said. HBC president Owen Matthews asked if there would be funds available to promote tourism in the area in the coming budgets. All three senators alluded to the unfortunate truth of

upcoming sessions. McEachin said he’s willing to listen to local leaders but other programs like education could take priority, and McDougle said increases in any programs seem unlikely. Stosch also said tough choices wait the next session, but “we can work our way through this.� McDougle said there’s no “silver bullet� that will resolve the situation, but the answer does not include depending on government to create jobs. He said lowering unemployment rates could alleviate the problem, increasing revenues for the state. “I firmly believe the private sector is the way to grow ourselves out of economic situations, not the government.�

Schools, I would like to welcome you to the 2011-2012 academic school year! It has been said that during the weeks of summer, public schools are busy preparing for another “Grand Opening.� I am pleased to share this evidence that our schools are about to open: Our instructional staff has rejuvenated through professional development and has ensured that their classrooms are designed to spark a sincere enthusiasm for learning. Our custodians have worked diligently to add a new “glow� to each building. Our bus drivers have checked their buses and have participated in safety training. Our cafeteria staff has mastered new recipes in anticipation of sharing those creations with our students. There is no doubt that we all are preparing anxiously and excitedly to greet the 19,000+ students who are projected to be enrolled in our schools during

2011-2012. Our school division’s theme this year is, “All in This Together.� While the phrase may be catchy, the poignant, honest truth is that each of us in the school community does, in fact, play a role in the education of our children. Our school division has amassed a number of accolades over the past several years, but we know that our school division has not achieved those honors in isolation. In fact, you – our parents and school community – are the central support mechanism which has allowed us to achieve at the highest levels. As we begin the 2011-2012 school year, I am confident that this school year will be like no other in terms of our academic achievement, our athletic accomplishments, and our staff and student recognitions. Thank you for your dedication to and support of Hanover County Public Schools. Best, Jamelle S. Wilson

say that homosexuality exists because of the effect of sin in the world, then I can agree with you. I know that it is hard to accept that all mankind are sinners but that is what the Bible says. The only variation is the particular sins that each is guilty of. However, as a Christian I am commanded by the Lord to tell others about sin, repentance and salvation, as all Christians are commanded to do. One of the last things Jesus Christ told his followers after His crucifixion, before he ascended up to Heaven, was to tell other people about repentance and the remission of sins. Read it for yourself; see Matthew 28:18-20, Mark 16:19-20, Luke 24:47-48. If you disagree with me on Biblical matters I have stated, then prove me wrong. I am open to reason on the subject. Anyone who chooses not to believe in God or the Bible, that is their choice. And I have not and I would not even attempt to tell anyone what they must do, because everyone must make their own choices. I am simply exercising my freedom of speech and expounding what the Bible actually says. Formerly, I replied to misinformation about God as stated in a published letter, and to other letters published of the same sentiment. Claudine Rellihan Mechanicsville

ASHLAND/WESTERN HANOVER | Also serving the communities of Montpelier, Beaverdam, Rockville and Doswell

Via addresses Kings Charter redistricting changes Ashland District supervisor visiting with constituents to explain the affects in Chickahominy/Ashland areas G. Ed Via III, who represents the Ashland District on the Hanover County Board of Supervisors, recently met with residents of the Kings Charter community to discuss the redistricting for that area. Via has been going door-todoor talking to constituents in affected communities, including Atlee Ridge, Manorwood and Castlewood, about the changes/additions. Several homes in Kings Charter were recently redistricted from the Chickahominy District to the Ashland District. The Board of Supervisor recently changed districts to equalize the population within each district. Most homes in Kings Charter are now part of the Ashland District. Only a small number of homes on the east side of Ivy Banks remain in the Chickahominy District. Via, who is serving his first term on the board, met with

Kings Charter residents on July 28 at the Clubhouse. This redistricting affects all homes located: ❍ On the southeast side of Charter Crossing (including all of Cloverlea Court, Marlbourne Way and Still Spring Court). ❍ On the south side of Kings Charter Drive from Charter Crossing all the way to the Ivy Banks entrance (including (a) all streets leading off of Kings Charter Drive to the south and west, (b) all of Charter Lake and (c) all streets leading off Spring Ivy Drive). ❍ On the north side of Kings Charter Drive from the south/east side of Stephens Manor Drive to the north/west side of Hopkins Branch Way). All homes within this area are part of the new “Chickahominy Precinct” that is in the Ashland District. Residents in this new precinct will continue to vote at Chickahominy Middle School.

Homes not affected by this redistricting are: ❍ On the south/east side of Hopkins Branch Way east of Kings Charter Drive (including Jennings Branch Court). ❍ On east/south side of Kings Charter Drive from Hopkins Branch Way to Atlee Station Road (including the southeast part of Ashley Manor Lane (the model home cul-desac ), Poplar Hall Court, Amelia Manor Court, Gathright Valley Court and Rose Cottage Lane). ❍ All of Stephens Manor. These homes will remain in the “Atlee Precinct” of the Chickahominy District. These residents will vote at Atlee High School. Also not affected are homes: ❍ On the north and west side of Charter Crossing. ❍ On both sides of Kings Charter Drive between Sliding Hill Road and Charter Crossing. ❍ On the north side of Kings

Facade and Landscaping Grant Program reopened In a time when the state of economy is uncertain, the Town of Ashland is taking proactive steps to support local businesses and encourage private investment. Ashland has opened the first round of Façade and Landscaping Grants for the 2011-2012 fiscal year. The town-administered program provides opportuni-

ties for businesses to apply for assistance with exterior enhancement projects. According to Alexis Thompson, economic development coordinator for the town, permanent improvement projects will receive priority. “Ideally, we like to see projects with long-lasting, see GRANT, pg. 17

Hines, sheriff, “has ensured that we are fully staffed in the School Resource Officer program,� Trice said. The SROs can be found in all middle and high schools, as well as the Hanover Center for Trades and Technology and the Georgetown School. Fifteen officers cover the county, including the private schools. “Our patrol officers are encouraged by school staff and the sheriff ’s staff to spend as much time as possible visiting,� the captain said. They are “welcomed and encouraged to eat lunch at all the schools.� The Sheriff ’s Office take part in the

Lunch Buddy Program, with deputies eating with the students. On Tuesday, Trice said, “You’ll see school buses and you’ll probably see police cars� to ensure students and staff arrive safely. The presence of officers and their cruisers, he said, will serve as a reminder that “we’re there.� “Little people will be moving around,� Trice said in stressing motorists abide by traffic laws. With the start of a new school year, deputies will meet with school bus drivers. “They see what happens. If they see it, they call us and we respond,� Trice said of any issues of concern. The buses are equipped with radios to keep drivers connected. “We’re one component of the safety net,� Trice said of working with staff, teachers,

People feel comfortable talking to them. This is part of the positive environment we like to generate.� In addition to the SROs, to keep a presence in the schools, the Sheriff ’s Office sponsors a Crime Stoppers Poster Contest and the Lights! Camera! Take Action! program through Fox TV. Residents can expect increased traffic on Tuesday and the Sheriff ’s Office, Trice said, “will be out enforcing the laws to make sure it’s a safe environment for the kids. Getting by the first week is a really big deal for us.�

Crop damage must be reported to get aid By Ken Upshaw County executive director The Non-Insured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP) is designed to reduce financial losses to enrolled producers when a catastrophic loss of production or prevented planting occurs. Producers covered by 2011 NAP, which suffer a production or prevented planting loss, are required to follow the “notice of loss” process in order to obtain assistance. Enrolled producers must file form CCC-576, Notice of Loss, to report failed acreage and prevented planting and may

be completed by any producer with an interest in the crop. Timely filing a Notice of Loss is required for all crops, including grasses. For losses on crops covered by the Non-insured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP) and crop insurance, producers must file a CCC-576 (Notice of Loss) in the FSA County Office within 15 days of the occurrence of the disaster or when losses become apparent. If filing for prevented planting, an acreage report and CCC-576 must be filed within 15 calendar days of the final planting date for the crop.

Land use enrollment opening Hanover County landowners who use their property for agricultural, horticultural or forestal uses or keep it in open space are invited to enroll in the Land Use Taxation Program. Under the program, qualified landowners can have their property assessed at “use value,” which may be lower than market value. This would reduce their real property taxes.

The application period for this program begins Sept. 1, 2011 and extends through Nov. 1, 2011, with an additional enrollment period Jan. 1, 2012, through Feb. 1, 2012. In order to qualify for the tax deduction, the property must be zoned for agricultural uses and have been in agriculsee LAND, pg. 21

Quake calls kept Fire/EMS busy The Best of Care for Your Family From Our Family!

By Jim Fields jfields@mechlocal.com A little after 1:51 p.m. Tuesday the phones at Hanover Fire/EMS started ringing, and, while the barrage has slowed, calls continue. “We were very fortunate in Hanover County,” Hanover Fire Battalion Chief Willie Jones said on Wednesday. “We had a lot of calls related to the earthquake, and probably the most were concerning propane gas leaks. The shaking apparently cracked a lot of lines feeding gas fire-

places.” There was some structural damage to buildings and the Mechanicsville Post Office closed for awhile. “They had cracks in all four walls,” Jones said. JONES “They closed until an inspection of the building was made and it was deemed safe.”

dreaming Celebrating 38 Years of Outstanding Patient Care and Service Thank you to the many friends and loyal patients who have made the decision to move to Hanover County such a wonderful experience for our family. After completing service in the U. S. Air Force at Cannon Air Force Base, New Mexico and Tahk-li, Thailand, Dr. Norman Marks opened a small office with one employee across from our current office on August 20, 1973. Never would he have imagined that 38 years later he would be working everyday with both of his sons and enjoying dentistry more than ever. Thank you to everyone, especially our amazing staff and patients, who have made this dream come true.

Hanover personnel and equipment also went to Louisa County, the epicenter of the 5.8 magnitude quake. “We sent a medic ambulance to Louisa about 6 p.m. Tuesday,” Jones added. “They were there to assist with calls if they were needed. As it turned out, they stayed for about four hours and returned without making a call.” He said he expected calls concerning earthquake issues to be done by this weekend.

tural, horticultural, forest or open space uses for at least five years. Property that has been zoned Rural Conservation (RC) also can qualify for the Land Use program. The minimum qualifying acreages are five acres for agricultural, horticultural and open space and 20 acres for forest use. A one-acre house site is allowed in all categories. Requirements and values are established by the State Land Evaluation Advisory Council. If the land use is changed, the tax reduction must be repaid with simple interest for the current tax year and a maximum of the previous five tax years. Participants with acreage or use changes must

re-apply and re-validate their eligibility. Re-validation also is required after six years even if there is no change in land use. There is no charge for this re-validation.

“We’re still getting a few calls and we might get a few more this weekend from folks who were away on vacation who find damage to their home or property when they return,� Jones said. “Considering how close Hanover was to the epicenter, we were really lucky. I’m not aware of any serious injuries or fatalities and property damage could have been a lot worse. We were really lucky. Now, it’s time to get ready for a hurricane.�

a big earthquake, but I didn’t know it was that close.� As for Hale, she thought a jet plane was about to take out the building. “Where I live, I’m right on the approach for the jet planes that do the flyovers when they have races at RIR,� she said. “At first, I heard a roar that sounded like those planes about to come through the WILDER building, and then everything started to shake and vibrate like my house does when they fly over. I was here by myself and suddenly realized it wasn’t a plane, that it must be an earthquake. I couldn’t decide whether to go out into the parking lot or stay put. I stayed where I was, but, in hindsight, I probably should have left the building.� Cory Ray Taylor was attending a class at the Parham Road Campus of J. Sargeant

Reynolds Community College. “I was in my math class when the computers started vibrating and shaking,� he said. “The walls were shaking and lights moving. We all just stayed in our seats and watched. When it was over, our professor checked the room, and — when no damage was found — we finished the class.� Taylor works at Surfside Bait and Tackle shop and said the business came through the quake alright. “My boss told me we had a few things fall off of shelves, but nothing broke and the building seems to be alright.� A few doors away at Colonial Pharmacy, Lois Wilder was at the check-out counter in the pharmacy department. “I was working, standing right where I am now,� she said. “The building started shaking and I just stayed put where I was. A few items fell off the taller shelves but nothing broke. We were able to pick them up and put them back on the shelves to sell.� Ricky Stewart was unloading his van when the excitement started. “I was unloading my van at the Henrico County loading dock,� he said. “All of a

sudden everything started shaking, and I watched my van move away from the dock. It just moved all by itself.� Chad Carter had been home for about five minutes when his family’s house CARTER started vibrating. “I was having lunch with my father when it hit,� he said. “The house started swaying back and forth and you could hear a big vibration. We ran outside and I could see my car moving forward and backward, swaying about a foot each way. The ground was going up and down, and the walls of the house were still moving. It lasted about 15, maybe 20 seconds, and even after it stopped, you could still feel vibrations in your legs for about another 20 minutes.� Carter said this was the first time in his life he had ever experienced an earthquake. “If I don’t ever experience one again, that’s just fine with me,� he said. “Once a lifetime is enough.�

Spider shakeup Last call as coach Scott resigns following DUI arrest was the right call

File photo by Charlie Leffler/The Local

Last Tuesday, Latrell Scott resigned as head football coach at the University of Richmond following his second DUI in the past seven years.

Scott showed true character in resignation By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com There is no argument that Latrell Scott made a terrible decision late last Monday night when he chose to operate a vehicle under conditions that eventually led to his arrest for driving while intoxicated. Scott made a major mistake in judgment that was magnified by his position within the community as the head football coach at the University of Richmond and alumnus of LeeDavis High School. Perhaps sadder still, Scott’s

situation was not out of the ordinary. High profile college coaches such as Bob Huggins (Cincinnati), Billy Gillespie (Kentucky), Andy Kennedy (Ole Miss), Eddie Sutton (Oklahoma State) and Frank Solich (Ohio U.) are just the beginning of a long list that preceded Scott in such errors of judgment. Time and again, men in positions of influence within the community of higher education commit the most unintelligent actions and ones they would never permit among their players. But everyone makes mistakes. It is how one responds to

August 31, 2011

By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Last Tuesday afternoon the University of Richmond announced that head football coach Latrell Scott had resigned. The announcement, which came 11 days before the Spiders’ 2011 season opener at Duke, was the result of Scott being charged with a DUI in Henrico County early Tuesday morning. “It’s a matter of public record that last night Coach Scott was charged with a DUI,” said Richmond Athletic Director Jim Miller. “Today he offered his resignation and it was ultimately accepted.” Scott phoned Miller at 8:40 a.m. on Tuesday morning to inform him of the situation and the two met on campus at 10 a.m. “It was sad for him talking today,” Miller said. “He was very, very, very sorry that this happened.” In the past, Miller has shown reluctance to speak about personal matters involving Spiders’ staff members, but such was not the case with Scott’s resignation. “In this case I think it’s important to note that when Coach Scott came this morning and talked about what happened, he immediately recognized the issue and offered his resignation without any request to do so. There were numerous meetings

throughout the day about this issue and ultimately we decided to accept his resignation.” The DUI charge was Scott’s second in the past 5-10 years, the previous charge came when he was an assistant at VMI. Miller said that the university was aware of the previous arrest and it was spoken of during Scott’s interview process prior to his being hired as head coach at Richmond. “I think we spent a great deal of time during the interview process talking about

issues, one of them was that issue, about what the expectations would be for him for the future,” Miller said. “I think it was clearly understood that this was an opportunity for Coach Scott and it was very important that there not be a second occurrence.” Miller had no regrets about either decision involving Scott relationship with UR. “It was the right thing to hire him and it was the right thing to do to accept his resignation under the circumstances,” Miller said.

“The core question is, what is the right thing to do under the circumstances?” Miller said. “Latrell believed the right thing to do was offer his resignation. The university administration believed it was the right thing to do to accept it…It was an uncomplicated but difficult decision.” For Miller, Scott’s resignation ranks among his darkest days as Richmond athletic director. “It’s certainly among the worst,” he said. “There’s some sad things see SCOTT, pg. 47 `

Tigers’ success will rely on county connection With Rohle back, Hampden-Sydney looking to roll By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Hampden-Sydney enters the 2011 football season hungry and ready to roll. After being knocked out of the NCAA playoffs at home in back to back years, the Tigers are chomping at the bit to return to the field. “Certainly two straight years of losing in the playoffs at home have kept us hungry,” said H-SC head coach Marty Favret. Hampden-Sydney, picked to finish second in the ODAC, could provide a solid challenge to reclaim the conference trophy this season thanks in no small part to a healthy infusion of Hanover County talent. Ten players on the H-SC roster are graduates of either Atlee, Hanover, Lee-Davis or Patrick Henry. There is little doubt H-SC will once again boast a potent offense; one that averaged 33.1

happen that’s just a part of the business. You lose games, people take other jobs, but this is a situation I think that involved a sad turn of events that was hurtful to a person and his family. “It was a sad time but also we knew that we had to spend the day making some tough decisions and looking forward to what is in the best interest for the University of Richmond and the best interest for these 80 plus young men on this football program.” The rest of football staff did not learn of Scott’s resignation until late Tuesday afternoon. “None of our coaches, to the best of my knowledge, were aware of this issue until we met

points per game last season. Not only do the Tigers return eight starters on offense but they also bring back their 10 top players in offensive production including their top 10 rushers from a year ago. “I really feel we have a senior laden group, particularly on offense, that could be as good as we’ve had since I’ve been here,” Favret said. Travis Lane (Mills Godwin) returns for his senior season at quarterback after throwing for over 3,300 yards last year while senior Ben Rogers (Hanover) has been deemed the best center in the country by Favret. Junior Tyler White (Atlee) also returns as a starter on the offensive line this season. But the biggest boost comes from the return of senior running back Kirk Rohle (Hanover) ,who missed most of last season after breaking his leg in the third game. Rohle averaged 95.3 yards a game on the ground but proved he can be equally as effective through the air. “I’m a huge Kirk Rohle fan,” Favret said. “He’s just a versatile kid

that can catch the ball and I think he’s going to give us those tough yards in the fourth quarter when you have the lead and try to run out the clock. I expect him to have a huge year.” Another local contributor returning on offense is halfback John Michael Sparagna (Atlee). Better known as J-Mike to his teammates, Sparagna, who transferred in from Old Dominion, proved increasingly more valuable as last season went on. “He really came on at the end of last year,” Favret said. “We’re going to throw him in there as a starter this year and expect him to do big things for us because he’s a terrific blocker.” But Sparagna’s role will not be limited to setting up the run. “We feel he can do some things with the ball in his hands,” Favret said. “Our offense is tough to pick up but I think he’s figured it out. He should have a great year for us.” As much as the local contingent of players will be important to the Tigers offense, perhaps nowhere will they need to step

up more than on the defense. H-SC returns on three starters on defense this season and only four of their top 13 tacklers from a season ago. Junior DB Steven Fogleman (Hanover) will be the defensive player under the most pressure this season. “Fogleman needs to become a star and he’s as talented as any kid we’ve had defensively,” Favret said. “We just need to get him to slow down and he needs to become a leader for us.” Junior linebacker Kenny Fryman (Hanover) will also take on a bigger role with the defense this season. Though uncertain how much he will be able to contribute as a freshman, Favret is really looking forward to seeing what linebacker Josh Doggett (Atlee) can do for his defense. “He’s probably the most valued recruit we’ve had since Drew Smith,” Favret said. “Is Josh ready to start right away? We’ll find out, but he’s certainly a terrific football player and a guy that we think we maybe

with them this afternoon, about an hour and a half before practice started,” Miller said. Likewise, Miller met with the Spider players prior to Tuesday’s practice and informed them of Scott’s resignation. “I did not spend a lot of time with them but I did see in their faces it was obviously a sense of shock,” Miller said. “When I talked to them this afternoon, I thought that their slogan that they had adopted this year of ‘No Excuses’ was going to be really tested today and in the next coming days and weeks and maybe months,” Miller said. “If they were really going to live up to that ‘No Excuses’ slogan then this is a time to really get it done. It’s very easy to look at this as an excuse to fail. I think looking

at their eyes, they were positive and optimistic that even though this is something that’s very, very uncomfortable and sad for them, it’s something that they were going to respond to positively.” Miller would not go so far as to say Scott’s resignation was a major setback for the Spiders’ football program. “It certainly a hurdle that these young men, primarily the student athletes and the coaches are going to have to deal with,” Miller said. “I think that whether it sets us back will be based upon their response to it. I tell you they’re pretty tough guys. They’re committed to being successful.” The school announced that offensive coordinator Wayne Lineburg was named the interim coach and he was formally

introduced on Wednesday morning. The 37-year-old Lineburg, a native of Radford, Va., returned to Richmond last season after spending three years with the offensive staff at the University of Virginia. With the Spiders, Lineburg acted as offensive coordinator and running backs coach from 2004-06 under then head coach Dave Clawson. Richmond will conduct a coaching search for a permanent replacement for Scott at the conclusion of the 2011 season. Scott, an alumnus of LeeDavis High School, was entering his second year as head coach at Richmond and battled through an injury-plagued 6-5 record in his first season at the helm of the Spiders.

grievous errors of judgment that shows their true character. Latrell Scott understood the magnitude of his actions and the decision he had to make. He could fight the charge and drag the case into court. He could argue with the university board to keep his job. He could attempt to sway the court of public opinion that his value as a football coach outweighed his importance as a role model. He could hope that the matter would get swept under the rug as a season with playoff potential got under way. But Scott has never been one to avoid responsibility for his actions. He never accepted it from his players and always set the standard himself. Coming into this season, Scott and the Spiders had adopted the slogan ‘No Excuses’. The Richmond team knew what they did wrong last season, made no excuses and looked to correct the situation. Likewise for Scott, simply making an excuse would destroy everything he stood for. With the season due to get underway in 11 days and the weight of intense scrutiny soon to fall upon him, Scott knew what was in the best interest of his university, his players and his conscience. Instead of dragging the situation through a media quagmire, Scott acted without hesitation. Early Tuesday morning Scott made his final call as the Spiders’ head coach. He walked into the office of Richmond Athletic Director Jim Miller, explained his mistake and without a request from the university, offered his resignation. “It was sad for him talking today,” Miller said. “He was very, very, very sorry that this happened.” For Miller, it was one of the darkest days of his career at Richmond. “It’s certainly among the worst,” he said. “There’s some

sad things happen that’s just a part of the business. You lose games, people take other jobs, but this is a situation I think that involved a sad turn of events that was hurtful to a person and his family.” Though obviously painful, Scott knew there was only one recourse for his action and responded in the only way his character would allow. At Lee-Davis, where Scott played high school football, head coach Zac Hayden felt the actions on Tuesday morning was a true defining moment for Latrell Scott. “I think that speaks for who he is,” Hayden said. “Some people would try to prolong it and get a way around it, get a lawyer. But for him to kind of man up and say, ‘Hey I made a mistake. I’m going to resign and go ahead and take care of my business,’ I think that speaks a lot about his character.” As of Wednesday morning, University of Richmond senior offensive lineman Richard Muldrow had yet to talk to Scott, but Muldrow felt his former coach reacted to the situation exactly as the players would have expected. “He’s a high class guy,” Muldrow said. “He pushes being a gentleman and being high class. I can see him doing what he did yesterday, being a true gentleman and being a man. That just shows how high class he is.” Redshirt junior linebacker Darius McMillian agreed. “Coach Scott is definitely a man of his word and he’s no stranger to stepping up and taking his responsibility as a man,” McMillian said. “That’s what I feel he did and I respect him for it.” Through his only season as the head of the Spiders’ program, Scott, like every college coach, made calls on the playing field that were questioned by fans, alumni and spectators. But no one would question that Scott’s final call as a head coach, was the right one to make.

Young Yellow Jackets could be a surprise Strong ground game and solid line will ease transition of new quarterbacks By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com From all outward appearances, the Randolph-Macon football team should struggle this season. Gone is one of the Yellow Jackets top quarterbacks, Austin Faulkner, who threw for over 1,400 yards and 17 TDs in only seven games last season. Gone is record setting wide receiver Earl Peebles, who averaged 118.1 receiving yards a game. Gone are two starting offensive linemen, Morgan Cross and Alex Johnson. Gone is defensive tackle Jaryd Grimsley. Therefore it is no surprise that R-MC was picked to finish fourth in the ODAC. However, the Yellow Jackets prospects cannot be judged on

the players who are gone but the talent that returns. Back are eight of Macon’s top 10 rushers from last season. Also back are nine of their top 11 receivers, the four top kick returners, 12 of their top 14 scorers, eight of the top 10 players in total offense and 15 of the top 16 players in all purpose yards. On defense the Jackets bring back 11 of their top 15 tacklers from a season ago and their top three players in interceptions. “We’ve got a lot of guys back,” said R-MC head coach Pedro Arruza. “We have a chance to be good.” However, Arruza pointed out that growth will be a major key due to a roster loaded with young players. “A lot comes down to how we develop,” he said. “We’re really, really young. We have some really good players coming back, but we’re really young in some key spots.” Likewise R-MC will replace see JACKETS, pg. 49 `

Randolph-Macon running back Thaddeus Scruggs (34) will be one part of a Yellow Jacket one-two punch on the ground that should be unmatched among ODAC competition.

Last week NASCAR’s Brad Keselowski gave a treat to a select group of ticket holders by inviting them to an exclusive cookout at Richmond International Raceway. For the driver of the #2 Miller Lite Dodge, it was an opportunity to get up close and personal with the people who support NASCAR. “We do a lot of different events throughout the year but the ones we do with the fans and the guys that come out here and buy tickets and support our

sport are very rewarding,” he said. “It’s nice to kind of give back and add value to their ticket and their experience.” Though Keselowski limped into RIR as the result of a broken ankle suffered during testing at Atlanta on August 3, he certainly will not limp into the Chase. The first half of Keselowski’s season was highlighted by a June 5 win at Kansas but since the beginning of July he has been the hottest driver in NASCAR. A 10th place finish at Sonoma was followed by a 15th place finish at Daytona and 7th place in Kentucky. Keselowski suffered a momentary setback with a 35th place finish at Loudon but bounced back to take 9th at Indianapolis before picking up his second win of the season at

Pocono. Not slowing down in the weeks since, Keselowski was second at Watkins Glen and third at Michigan then found victory lane for the third time this season with a win at Bristol this past weekend. Though the results have been significantly better over the past two months, Keselowski feels his Penske race team has really made no changes. “I don’t feel like I’m doing anything different, we’re just winning as a team,” he said. “It sounds pretty obvious but we’ve had good runs before this but we haven’t gotten the finishes.” Entering Kansas, Keselowski was 25th in points. Going into Atlanta this weekend he has risen to 11th and with this year’s see WILD, pg. 51`

veteran depth with inexperienced talent so staying healthy will be very important. “This year most of our depth, they’re freshmen,” Arruza said. “We’re a play or two away from playing a bunch of freshmen, which to me is also exciting because we’ve got some freshmen that are really good players.” OFFENSE The Yellow Jacket should face little fall off when it comes to moving the ball on the ground. Senior running back Thaddeus Scruggs and his junior partner Drake Sanders were nearly unstoppable last season and should be the best running combo in the ODAC this year. Both players were hurt at various points of last season but still averaged over 90 yards rushing per game and over five yards per carry. “I think those two guys could start on any team in the ODAC and arguably the two best back returning in the ODAC,” Arruza said. “They’re outstanding football players and great character kids and I would expect that they would both have great years.” When it came to catching the ball last year, Peoples was so good that he pulled in over half of the total passes thrown. This season the Jackets hold an advantage in not being so predictable through versatility at the receiver position. Junior Vance Hendren is the top returning receiver, averaging 22.8 yards per catch last season. He is closely followed statistically by senior tight end Dan Crouch, junior WR Luke Sellers, Sanders, sophomore Zack Midulla, Scruggs and junior Jesse Naccarato, each of whom averaged double digit yardage per catch last season. The biggest question for the offense comes at quarterback. Sophomore Greg Petrohovich eventually inherited the job, closing things out after Faulkner’s season ending injury.

But Arruza said the team really wasn’t equipped to play without Faulkner a year ago. “It wasn’t that we didn’t have anybody ready, we just didn’t have anybody in the program that was capable of stepping up.” This year the Jackets have an abundance of talent in the pocket, albeit inexperienced. Arruza has yet to determine whether Petrohovich or freshman Zac Naccarato will get the starting nod. Both have had exceptional camps. “It’s going to be one of the two,” Arruza said. “More than likely I’m going to play both.” Both players give R-MC some size in the pocket. Petrohovich was somewhat lanky last season but showed his potential as a passer over the final four games with a 55.1 completion percentage. This year the sophomore out of Benedictine has added a little more bulk to his 6-5 frame. The 6-2 Naccarato, a lefty out of Spotsylvania, has been no less impressive in the early camp. “They’re both very similar. Both very athletic,” Arruza said. “I think both are very good fits for the offense.” But Arruza indicated that he has two additional freshmen quarterbacks close of the heels of Petrohovich and Naccarato. Because his quarterbacks are so young, Arruza will need an effective offensive line which will start with two talented seniors; team co-captain Colin Moe and Byron Overstreet (Patrick Henry). “I’m looking for a lot of things out of Byron,” Arruza said. “He is our top returning offensive lineman and a really talented guy and we’re really counting on him.” With a young quarterback Moe knows the pressure will be on the line this season. “As an offensive line we’re just going to take Greg or one of the freshmen quarterbacks under our arm and just guide him along,” he said. DEFENSE The key to the Jackets’ season will rely on its ability to

play defense. At times last year they were brilliant. In other instances they were far from it. Therefore Arruza is looking for more consistency, especially if the ODAC produces the record setting offenses of a year ago. “One of the things I said to our staff and our football players is, we have to get better on defense,” Arruza said. An additional year of experience should provide that growth. Fifth year senior linebacker Jeremy Bowry and sophomore safety Andrew Leonard are back as the team’s leading tacklers from a season ago. Senior safety Billy Knarr also spent time leading the team in tackles as well. Defensive end and senior co-team captain Joe Pricone, junior linebacker David Fetter (Lee-Davis), junior defensive tackle Ian Candelaria and junior cornerback Brandon Harrison round out the top returning

tacklers. Harrison had an impressive freshman season and showed signs of turning into the defensive star and he will need to be. The Jackets’ secondary proved problematic last season and will be the area that needs to improve the most this year. “That’s where we’ve struggled for the past two years,” Arruza said. The hard-hitting Fetter could also prove a key component in this year’s defense. “I’m expecting him to have a big year,” Arruza said. “He came back in tremendous physical condition. He’s worked as hard or harder than any player on our team in this camp.” Arruza does not rule out the possibility of seeing contributions from a strong freshman class that includes a trio of former Confederates, wide receiver Chance Stone, linebacker William Coalson and

Alexa Oswald is kicking into high gear Lee-Davis senior a Tae Kwon Do champion looking for more By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Lee-Davis senior Alexa Oswald has been getting her kicks in style this summer. Over the past five months, Oswald has been pounding a path to success in the world of Tae Kwon Do which could lead to world class achievements. In April, Oswald took the Virginia State Tae Kwon Do title in the 14-17 age group. At the Maryland State TKD Association East Coast Open in May, she claimed a close second. Then on July 16 she won her division of the prestigious Yong-In Presidential Cup International TKD event in Greensboro, NC. With the International title, Oswald also earned the opportunity to train for 10 days at the Yong-In TKD University in South Korea sometime in the near future. But Yong-In would not be the first prestigious school Oswald has attended. In June she spent four days working on her Tae Kwon Do skills at he Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Co. For Oswald, it was a very memorable experience. “They didn’t necessarily give feedback about where you were, but they treated us all like Olympians,” she said. “It was really cool.” Oswald first picked up the sport as a youngster at American Family Fitness and has been training under 4th degree black belt Craig Simpson at Mechanicsville’s Tae Kwon Do Works for the past eight years. Tae Kwon Do varies from Karate with an emphasis on

Kwon Do schedule. At Lee-Davis, Oswald said a lot of people are taken by surprise when they learn she is involved in the sport. “A lot of people just kind of giggle because I’m small and it’s kind if funny,” she said. However one reaction remains consistent. “Every time I say I do Tae Kwon Do, the first thing out of their mouths is, ‘Show me some moves’,” she laughed. “I’m like well, when

somebody does track, you don’t ask them to run a lap.” Oswald hopes that her training in the sport will eventually carrier her to the Olympics, which Simpson said is not out of the realm of possibilities. “It’s a long hard road to the Olympics but I’m not willing to say we couldn’t do it,” Simpson said. Having stepped up every year, Oswald’s current goal is to reach Nationals in 2012.

Her vigorous warm-up routine includes paddle drills, crescent kicks, speed drills on an agility ladder and box jumpsa draining workout before she even suits up to spar. “It gets your blood pumping,” she said. “I feel like I really need to be warmed up before I’m ready to go 100 percent.” Speed is one of Oswald’s greatest assets. “She’s very fast,” Simpson said. “She has very fast twitch muscles. She can really move very quickly and she’s able to generate a lot of power for her size. That’s what makes her a tough opponent.” Oswald has also proven to be equally efficient when it comes to school work.

addition of two wild card slots Keselowski has virtually locked up a spot in the Chase with three wins. While the top 10 drivers in the Chase are determined by points, the final slots go to the two drivers in the 11thru-30 slots with the most wins. Keselowski and former Chesterfield resident Denny Hamlin are currently ranked as the last two drivers to make the Chase. “I think the wild card is a huge move for our sport and I think it’s really the finishing touches on the Chase, what the Chase needed,” Keselowski said. He feels that the previous format devalued many races in the middle of the season. “It seemed like by the time you got to race 10 there was really only three or four people fighting to get into the Chase. It never really changed from there. “With the wild card picture, heck, you can go to tracks like Pocono, that kind of used to be snoozers and didn’t really make a difference; if you win Pocono like I did, now you all of a sudden have a shot of getting into the Chase.” Because of the innumerable wild card possibilities, Keselowski believes the Wonderful Pistachios 400 on

September 10 in Richmond could have more intensity than any previous Last Race to Make the Chase. “I think you’re looking at the last wild card race here at Richmond kind of being the ultimate Chase race,” he said. “You’re going to see a lot of teams have one win and if any of them can break through and get that second win it nearly clinches their spot in the Chase. So there’s a lot of guys can race their way in if they can just win a race here.” Likewise, with three wins Keselowski’s focus has shifted from simply making the Chase to possibly winning the championship. “I think the last two weeks have certainly given us

a lot of momentum,” he said. “Where before we’re thinking more about how we can capitalize on our opportunity in the Chase rather than just get in.” As recently as last year, a warm reception for Keselowski in Richmond would have been one of the least expected sites to see. In his first two seasons among Sprint Cup competition, Keselowski was more known for on and off-track run-ins than his racing. Among those run-ins was local favorite Hamlin. But all of that appears to be in the past this year as the young driver took the seat in feels that winning races and the #2 Miller Lite Dodge. He becoming a virtual lock to make the Chase are possibly the payoff for his previous actions. “I haven’t had a run in this year, of Maymont along with the fes- which I think is good, right?” he tival atmosphere that accompa- said with his normal wry sense of humor. “But I think the fact nies the event.

Heck, I don’t know, I guess you’d have to ask them. I’m too close to the fire.” However, one thing Keselowski does know, with his recent performances on the track he has become very popular among race fans. “It’s a huge honor,” he said. “The fans are kind of the ultimate judge, jury and executioner of whatever moves you make for good or bad.”
