Assessments fall 8.2 percent Residential values dropped 7.7 percent; commercial values down to 11.5 percent By Amy Condra acondra@goochlandgazette.com

Property values fell 8.2 percent, or $451 million this year, County Assessor Glen Branham told supervisors last week. Residential assessments dropped 7.7 percent, and property transfers were down 9.5 percent. Commercial values fell even further, to 11.5 percent. Of the county’s 717 commercial properties, 332 are vacant, said Branham. There has been a 68 percent decline in new construction, once a big business in Goochland: In 2008, new construction assessments for the county and the TCSD totaled nearly $116 million; in 2009, that number had fallen to $37 million. Significant vacancy rates, low rents, tight mortgage financing and a negative economy were cited as causes for what Branham called “a pretty big hit.” But that blow could have been harder, said District 5 Supervisor James W. Eads, who had feared that assessments might fall as low as15 percent. “I was surprised with Glenn Branham’s report,” he said, noting turbulence in the real estate market across the region. “In this case, thank God, it’s nice to be pleasantly surprised.” see Assessments> page 3

Courtney Hyers announces her candidacy for the District 5 seat at the Goochland Republican Women’s Club meeting Friday morning.

Last week Ken Peterson announced he would seek to succeed District 5 Supervisor Eads on the Board of Supervisors when Eads’ term ends in 2011.

Planning commissioner gets Eads’ endorsement

Investment specialist plans listening tour

By Ken Odor jodor@goochlandgazette.com

Planning commission member Courtney Hyers has announced her candidacy for the District 5 seat on the Goochland County Board of Supervisors. “I have the time, the experience in Goochland government and the will to get things done,” said Hyers, who is seeking the Republican nomination, at a meeting Friday of the Goochland Republican Women’s Club at the Manakin Fire Station. The meeting featured an appearance by Jamie Radtke, President of the Richmond Tea Party Organization, but Hyers’ announcement was the first order of business. Current District 5 Supervisor James W. Eads endorsed Hyers after her

announcement. “I am pleased to offer Mrs. Hyers my wholehearted support,” said Eads, who is serving his fourth term on the Board of Supervisors. “She is the right person at the right time to succeed me.” “She believes in the Comprehensive Plan,” said Eads. “After all, she helped write it.” Eads said Hyers respects the rural nature of Goochland and would work to preserve it. Hyers, a 20-year resident of the county, is a former president of the Tuckahoe Home Owners Association and currently represents District 5 on the Goochland Planning Commission. She is a graduate of Randolph Macon Woman’s’ College and the University of Florida Law School.

She also served as senior tax counsel for CSX Corporation, and during her 30-year career she dealt with tax matters in 20 states, handling multimillion dollar tax litigation and tax legislation on behalf of CSX. In 2001 she was appointed by Gov. Jim Gilmore to serve on his commission on government finance reform, where she served with Republicans Tom Bliley and Thelma Drake. Hyers said she believes in low taxes and maintaining Goochland’s rural nature. “I am committed to the land use program and placing land in conservation easements,” Hyers told the group. Hyers also commented on the problems in Goochland’s recent past, including the utilsee Hyers> 5

With more than a year and a half remaining before Goochland voters head to the polls to elect local leaders, the political scene in the county is already heating up. More than 100 supporters gathered last weekend at the Manakin Firehouse to hear local family investment specialist Ken Peterson announce his candidacy for the District Five Board of Supervisors seat. Jim Eads, who plans to retire at the end of his term, currently holds the position. One day before Peterson’s announcement, District Five Planning Commissioner Courtney Hyers announced her intention to run for the seat in 2011. The timing may seem pre-

mature to some, but county Republican Party leader Ben Sloane said it is part of an effort to inform the citizenry, early and often. “We want people to really get to know these candidates and the issues that are important to this county,” Sloane said. “It’s part of a national movement to get people more involved in their government.” He said a more informed voter base usually equates to increased turnout on Election Day. Sloane said the most recent District Three election results between Creasey, Burnett and Lacey add credence to that belief. “I welcome you here to be involved in the continuing process that brings forth leaders, nurtures them, gets them elected and adds to the

responsibility of our government on how they govern and fulfill their roles,” Sloane told the assembled crowd. Peterson and his wife Joan hosted the informal event, which featured an appearance and speech by historical re-enactor Kevin Grantz as George Washington. Goochlander Bob Marcellus, a member of Governor-Elect Bob McDonnell’s Transition Team, introduced Peterson. “Ken has the perfect background for what he is about to undertake,” Marcellus said. “We need CEO, financial type experience for running government. Fiscal responsibility is the key,” he added. Peterson holds a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) from Northwestern see Peterson> 5


tion. “It goes once around every five years, for each of the five members.” “I don’t know what I did to make somebody mad,” he said. “Maybe when I called a vote to get rid of the county administrator.” Last January, after revelations of mismanagement in the utilities department, Butler and Creasey voted to dismiss former County Administrator Gregory K. Wolfrey. They were defeated, as they were this week, by another 3–2 vote, reflecting a split that frequently separates the supervisors. Following the resignations last spring of Wolfrey and former

sonal skills of anybody on that board. He can do a great job with the budget, and get peace and harmony with the school system.” During the meeting’s citizens’ comments period, two residents rose to protest the vote. “Apparently three of you on this board thought that you might be threatened; apparently you changed things to go the way you want them,” said Ann James of Oilville. “People in Goochland County think the three of you— who apparently hold the cards now—are the three that put this county and its citizens in the situation they now find themselves.” Ann Rockecharlie of Manakin-Sabot said that

she was disappointed that Eads had voted against rotation. “I am disappointed that you as a board have refused to share leadership,” she said. District 3 Supervisor Ned S. Creasey says he regrets what the split vote might mean for the county, at a time when many had hoped that Goochland was moving toward a period of stability. “Morale has been really high again, creative juices were starting to flow,” said Creasey. “This is now a big step back. It’s terrible for the board to be in this turmoil.”

continued from >1 Earlier this year, County Administrator Rebecca Dickson had projected a $5.4 million revenue shortfall for 2011 based on a 12 percent decline in assessments. The 8.2 percent decline will mean a revenue increase of nearly $1 million more than anticipated. Branham said that although in the fourth quarter it appears that the housing market is somewhat stabilized, it isn’t good by any means. The average value of the 8,690 homes in the county dropped from $375,328 last year to $344,602 for 2010. “The bad news is foreclosures have increased d r a m a t i c a l l y,” said Branham. At recent school board hearings, several residents have raised the possibility

of raising the county’s 53cent real estate tax rate as a way of maintaining current funding. But supervisors haven’t shown support for such increases. “It’s hard to raise taxes when people are out of jobs and businesses are closing,” said District 4 Supervisor Malvern “Rudy” Butler. Eads agrees. “Raising taxes is a serious business,” he said. “People say it’s a rich county… but 40 or 50

families distort the picture. There are 2000 people in Goochland with a family of four, making less than $20,000. You have to ask, ‘Who does this impact, can they stand it?’” “Families are reevaluating how they live,” he added, “and it is government’s duty to examine its soul, with everybody else.”

Christmas Mother Program reviews efforts One stalwart member will be sorely missed by the community By Ken Odor jodor@goochlandgazette.com

The Goochland Christmas Mother board met last week to review their holiday efforts. But one of the long-time pillars of the organization was not there to hear the reports. Betty Ann Bowman, who had been active in the program for more than 30 years, passed away November 30 at the age of 67. She served as the Goochland Christmas Mother in 1995. “It was such a shock to everybody,” said Marian Elam, president of the Goochland Christmas Mother board of directors. Bowman had been in charge of shopping duties for the Christmas Mother program for years, organizing the trips to local stores to buy the gifts for the clients. “It was such a really big blow when she died,” said Virginia Nash, who said she and Bowman were distant cousins and lifelong friends. “We grew up together and lived side by side.” Besides playing an integral role in the Goochland Christmas Mother program, Bowman was active in the Goochland Woman’s Club and was a volunteer for the American Cancer Society.

For Better Grades

Nash said Bowman got her involved in a bowling team, The RCC Pinups. Bowman was also an artist and enjoyed rug making. “She was just so talented,” said Elam. The program that Bowman put so much of her energy into over the years was a big success this year, said Elam. 2009 Christmas Mother Anne Hardwicke raised a record $52,000 for next Christmas, according to Elam. “Anne was just an amazing Christmas Mother,” said Elam, who said Hardwicke did some new things for the program, like designing special stationery. This year’s effort served 235 families and a total of 572 people, with an additional 36 families with a total of 101 members adopted out by churches, local businesses and individuals, said Elam. Last year’s Christmas Mother, Cindy Valentine, stepped in to take over the shopping program, said Elam. It’s a group effort of a large group of folks, many of who, like Bowman, have been working for years to help the less fortunate in the county. “They are an amazing bunch of ladies – a sight to behold,” said Elam. Nash, who said she would sometimes help with the Christmas Mother shopping, said she still has to stop herself Contributed Photo from picking up the phone to call Betty Ann.

Unsafe methane levels at Hidden Rock Park After it was revealed that methane levels at Hidden Rock exceeded the Department of Quality’s acceptable limits, the park was closed in January. The DEQ had issued a consent order in June of 2008, after discovering that the county had not followed required methods of lowering methane levels. Methane, a natural byproduct of decaying organic materials, is a potentially explosive gas. In response to the DEQ’s consent order, the county paid a fine of more than $11,000 and installed an active remediation system. Recreational fields at the park were reopened in August.

Out in the wild Goochland is, as County Assessor Glen Branham noted this week, a place where people can still have a little piece of the country. The land here is lushly green, and the pace is slow (albeit a bit unsteady at times). But these days, at least, it’s not entirely peaceful. As officials and citizens gathered at last week’s Board of Supervisors, I overheard a county employee wish for a happier, quieter new year than the one Goochland has only just endured. That sentiment got to last about five minutes before it was shattered; as a longstanding tradition of rotation was set aside, to the shock and chagrin of many on the board and in the audience, the disgruntled whispers in the audience began to rise to a rumbling roar. For over a decade, supervisors had agreed to rotate, in order, the chairmanship from supervisor to supervisor, so that by the end of five years each of the five districts had been represented in the role. Although William E. Quarles Jr., the new Chairman of the Board of Supervisors, is perfectly right in saying that the board’s rules state that an election for the chair must take place at the first meeting of the year, and District 5 Supervisor James W. Eads is similarly correct in noting that rotation is a gentleman’s agreement rather than a codified mandate, well, that’s not how District 4 Supervisor Malvern “Rudy” Butler saw it. Butler was not alone in anticipating that his turn had come to lead the board; District 3 Supervisor Ned Creasey noted that rotation had been an accepted practice. And he noted that eschewing that tradition, exposing the divisions amongst the supervisors, would be bad for morale. I agree. Regardless of whether you supported Quarles or Butler as chairman, the exposed split is just unseemly. I do believe that in this case it would have been best if the three supervisors (District 1 Supervisor Andrew Pryor voted with Quarles and Eads) had decided against staging what many saw as a coup. And I wish that there had been a discussion during which Eads, Quarles and Pryor had explained to Butler why they would, or could, not support him as chairman. Because now, instead of transparency, Goochland is right back in what seems to be its murky comfort zone. And instead of participating in government, citizens take on the role of voyeurs. I, and I believe that there are others like me in this county these days, would like to have our elected and appointed officials give reasons for their actions. “Old boys’ network” and “backroom politics” are, as one supervisor justifiably pointed out to me recently, vague terms that don’t really mean anything. So why don’t we all stop being vague, and ask the specific question: Mr. Quarles, Mr. Eads and Mr. Pryor, will you tell the taxpayers and the electorate why, exactly, you did not want Mr. Butler to be chairman? - Amy Condra

Arrogant supervisors? The arrogance of three members of the Goochland Board of Supervisors has set off something of a firestorm among many citizens of Goochland. It has been the practice of the GBOS to rotate the chairmanship annually, with the vice chair of the previous year moving into the full chairmanship at the first board meeting of the new year. Last Tuesday, however, at the proposal of Jim Eads, Bill Quarles was elected instead. This surprise move on the part of Eads, Pryor, and Quarles was an affront, not only to the expected

successors to the chair and vice chair positions but to the citizens of their districts. For others it represents a betrayal. It was Jim Eads who campaigned on the issue of a rotating chairmanship and whose motion for it was originally adopted. Surely an adequate explanation for such a drastic change of heart is due those who supported him. While this appears to be a return to the good ol’ boy method of government (Have we ever really left it?), bets are running hot and heavy that this coup was less a punitive action against the two stalwarts who dared to

expose Utilitygate, and more that it was a desperate action by those who still have something to try to hide. Whatever the reason, it was a shameful and disrespectful act. Can you say “Sleazy,” Boys and Girls? Linda Hosay Columbia

Oilville is currently served by a two lane road (Oilville Road). During morning and evening rush hour the road and I-64 interchange are used heavily. It is not uncommon to have evening traffic backed up down the westbound exit ramp onto the deceleration lane of I64, creating a major safety issue. Numerous accidents happen as traffic swirls around these exits regulated by stop signs. Instead of approving this new zoning and worrying about upgrading infrastructure later, let us address the issue now. Oilville Road should be widened to four lanes from Route 250 to the Goochland Industrial Park, which borders Hanover County. Widening must include the existing narrow bridge that will be subjected to large trucks and heavier loads if a truck plaza locates in the area. Stoplights need to be installed at each exit to regulate traffic flow in a safe and orderly manner.

7

Only when these upgrades are done to handle existing traffic, not to mention increased future traffic, can we begin to contemplate a change in zoning. If we want Oilville to become another Zion’s Crossroads we need to plan before inviting this on the community. Residents from Hanover, Louisa and Goochland depend on this interchange at Oilville. To make an already bad traffic situation worse with the planned zoning changes would be a disservice to these folks. Let’s get this right and have the foresight to plan for growth, not react to it. I urge everyone to contact their Goochland Supervisors before it is too late! Nearby residents of Hanover and Louisa who have concerns are also encouraged to voice their opinions. W.H.

Senior grabs for gusto in his final year

Multi-talented senior Brandon Henry looks to make his final mark BY JIM RIDOLPHI sports@goochlandgazette.com

GHS senior Brandon Henry is taking full advantage of his final year at Goochland High School. After taking a year off from football as a junior, he returned to the team for his final hurrah last fall and found himself on a state contending squad that almost went all the way. “It was a great experience and I had really had fun,” Henry said. “I thought since it was my senior year, I should try to do all I can,” he added. His football legs didn’t take long to return and he recorded six inter-

ceptions from his safety position on his Jefferson District co-champion team. Later on in the spring, Henry will take to the track to compete in another of his favorite sports. But winter is the season Henry truly lives for, and he hopes this basketball season will cap a power packed career as a Bulldog. The senior is currently averaging 20.5 points with a team that has its share of new players. “It’s hard to compare this team to last year’s,” Henry said. “We could just run and go up and down the floor last year. This year’s team is still coming together, but they have the potential to

advance to the playoffs,” he added. Beginning at recreation league levels, Henry has displayed an amazing talent on the court, and he’s still working to bring that set of skills up a notch. “I feel like I learn something new every time I’m on the court,” he said. “The game is a progression and your skills have to progress. I think my game is better this year than last,” Henry added. The senior hopes to take his talents to the next level, but as yet the destination is unknown. “I know I want to play college ball, but I’m not sure where that will be,” Henry said. “I’ll go to any college that will let me play basketball.” It’s a dedication that Henry lives for. “I think about basketball all the time,” he said. “It’s the main thing on my mind all the time.” Henry is the son of Craig Anderson and Saprina Henry. He has two sisters and a brother, all younger, and that keeps the house interesting. “There’s always something going on around there,” Henry said. He pays special attention to younger sister

Basketball is always in the forefront for Goochland senior Brandon Henry but he plans to make the most of his final year at GHS, competing in a multiude of sport. Far left: In his time away from sports Henry enjoys the company of his youngest sister Jadyn.

Jadyn, two. “She’s a handful and hard to keep up with,” Henry said. This year’s Bulldog squad depends on a solid inside game teamed with pinpoint perimeter shooting. It’s a scheme that is not new to Henry, but different from the run and gun personality of last year’s team. “It took some adjustment, but we work harder to get the ball inside or to an outside open shot,” Henry said. “We are more patient this year, and we improve with each game so I think we’ll be all right in the long run.” And the senior is always working on his game. “It never stops. I think I can always improve. I feel like I’m

jumping higher and moving better each year,” he said. Henry is hoping his talents will anchor a Bulldog campaign that has started well. Playing in a new district with improved competition is something that doesn’t seem to worry the senior. “It’s really not that different from last year. Some of the teams have more depth, but I haven’t noticed any big changes,” Henry said. He’s looking to repeat his recent football run and advance his Bulldogs to a similar position in the playoffs. “If we keep coming together as a team, we can go all the way.”

Support and encouragement helped Trebour train Submitted by Sports Backers

When Beth Trebour’s daughter was born with a disability, she found that there was little to no time for exercise. Now an avid runner, biker and triathlete, Beth credits the YMCA 10k Training Team with jumpstarting her journey to a more active lifestyle. “I quit work to focus 100% on my daughter and take care of her,” recalls Beth. “She’s better now, but it was very difficult to fit anything else into my life at the time.” Beth got the itch to join the 10k Training Team at her local YMCA last year after her husband successfully completed the program and the 2009 Monument Avenue 10k. The only problem was that

she faced the same obstacles that all new runners face – self-doubt and intimidation. “I wasn’t sure about making it past one mile, let alone 6.2. But what we all need is someone to tell us to stop saying ‘we can’t’. The 10k Training Team did that for me.” The YMCA 10k Training Team is a program designed to help participants meet their fitness goals while training for the March 27 Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10k. The program is offered at 14 different YMCA branches and provides a format for walkers, novice, and intermediate runners to complete a 10-week training program and lay the groundwork for a regular routine of physical fitness. “The support and encouragement you receive as part of the training team is amaz-

ing,” Beth says. “There are coaches with you every step of the way. I was so incredibly proud when I ran that first mile. I couldn’t believe I had made it!” Ro Gammon, Beth’s training team coach, knows that it can be difficult to take that initial step and sign up but emphasizes that it can lead to a lifetime of healthier living. “Beth is a wonderful example of the positive changes that can result from participating on the 10k training team,” she says. “It has been such a pleasure to see her confidence grow and her passion for running and exercise develop. Beth went from not exercising at all to successfully completing the 10k, then on to doing bike rides and triathlons. It is stories like this that make being

a part of this program so rewarding.” With a single commitment, Beth was on her way to a healthier and happier life, and now she can’t image her life any differently. “Ro talked me into doing the 10k Training Team pro-

gram,” she says. “Now, exercising is my sanity. I can’t wait to give back and get other people encouraged to take the same first step. We all have to start somewhere and for me, the Training Team was the answer. If I can do it, anybody can do it and you’ll

be better for it!” Registration is now open for the Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10k and the YMCA 10k Training Teams, which kick off Jan. 16. For more information, please call 285-9495 or visit www.sportsbackers.org.

Beth Trebour found the support and encouragement to take on the Monument Avenue 10k through the YMCA 10k Training Team.

The 2009 football season is in the books for the teams competing in the Metro Youth Football League with the Juniors, Midgets and Pee Wees advancing to the Playoffs. The Juniors lost a hard-fought contest to Charles City in the first round 18-0 to finish 5-4. The Pee Wees received a bye

in the first round due to winning their division and won their second round playoff 60 over the Western Wildcats before falling in round three to the East End Tigers 13-0, finishing 8-2. The Midgets won their first round game 33-6 against the Chesterfield Giants, their second round game 14-6 over the Parham Tigers, their third round game against

the Western Wildcats 14-7 in overtime before falling in the championship game 33-12 to the Glen Lea Lions, finishing the season 9-3. The Flag team finished 1-7, the JV Midgets finished 3-5 and the JV Pee Wees finished 2-6. The GYAA would like to thank all the volunteers whose contributions made this such a wonderful season for the kids.

Colonial Trail E.S. teacher honored

Photos by Ken Odor

By Ken Odor Media General Staff Writer So you’re going to start a new town? What do you need? Everything, that’s what. So last Friday fifth-grade economics teacher Deb Gribben’s class at Colonial Trail Elementary School held a County Fair, where they hawked their wares to each other and visiting parents. It’s all part of Gribben’s original program, in which the stu-

dents learn how a local economy in a new and growing town works. Gribben, who was recently honored by the the Virginia Council on Economic Education (VCEE) for her project, received first place and $1,000 in the Economic Educator Awards for her unit “New Frontiers in Economics.” The 15-week unit allows students to develop a fictitious, western frontier town with a working economy. A luncheon honoring eco-

nomic educators from around the state was held last month at the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond. Gribben was also named the Economic Educator of the Year by the VCU Center for Economic Education, a part of the VCU School of Business, for her ongoing commitment to economic education. Gribben, who teaches 5th grade advanced math, said she based the program called Mini Society. continued on page 2

Above, Abbie Jones (left) and Gracyn Gigante sold out of their “Rock and Roll Rocks” at the County Fair. Left, Economics teacher Deb Gribben watches as Krystal Doh spins the wheel at the County Fair. The fair was the culmination of Gribbens’ “New Frontiers in Economics” program which won her recognition as the Economic Educator of the Year by the VCU Center for Economic Education

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wrote my own program to combine with the SOLs,â&#x20AC;? she said. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about starting up a town and combines elements of social studies, economics and mathematics, said Gribben. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What do you need, what do you do first?â&#x20AC;? are some of the questions the students must answer, said Gribben. At Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s County Fair, the products were pretty original. Michael Buckberg and his partner Connor Dolan were selling â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bombing Balloons.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pencil with a balloon attached. Their slogan? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The balloon that you never drop again.â&#x20AC;? They sold seven in the first 15 minutes. Parent Deanna Jernigan was loading up on the pencil balloons and Fizzy Bath Balls, made by her daughter Kinsey and her partner Catherine Larkin. The fair started at 8 a.m. Friday morning in Gribbenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s classroom. Around 8:30 Gribben rang a bell to let the students know they might want to consider reducing prices to clear their inventory before the fair ended at 9. Abbie Jones and her partner Gracyn Gigante took the hint and reduced the price on their â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rock-n-Roll Rocks from $12 to $10. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You use them as a paper weight or a decoration for your room,â&#x20AC;? they explained. Their sale worked. They sold out. To add the flavor of a county fair, Gribben had a wheel

for the students to spin to win prizes, like a pass on homework, a pen and pencil set or a piece of candy. In March the students will go to VCU with their products to buy and sell at Market Day with some 900 students from the Richmond area.
