angie Williams is one step closer to Congress. Williams prevailed Tuesday night in the Democrats’ primary election for a House of Representatives seat in the 1st Congressional District, which includes Stafford, Fredericksburg, portions of Spotsylvania, the Northern Neck and extends to Hampton Roads. “I’m overjoyed for the voters who believe in me and my vision for the district!” Williams said after her win. “This victory is for all the hardworking people whose voices have been ignored for too long. Tonight we take another step toward a future that works for everyone.” Williams went up against Prince William County’s John Suddarth and Stafford County’s Edwin Santana Jr. in the race. She prevailed by 11,001 total votes (39.91 percent), with Santana pulling in 9,020 votes (32.72 percent) and Suddarth walking away with 7,546 votes (27.37 percent), according to unofficial totals from the Virginia Department of Elections. In Prince William County, 44.14 percent of the vote went to Santana; Williams garnered 31.74 percent of the vote; and Suddarth captured 24.12 percent. In Stafford County, 40.78 percent of the vote went to Williams; 37.76

CHRISTOPHER COLE FOR INSIDENOVA

irginia’s Republican voters sent Corey Stewart to this fall’s U.S. Senate election on Tuesday, handing the Prince William Board of County Supervisors chairman a statewide win and setting up a bruising battle with incumbent Democrat Tim Kaine. A year after he barely lost his bid for governor with the GOP electorate, the longtime local board chairman redeemed his political prospects with the state’s party faithful, giving him the edge over Del. Nick Freitas, R-Culpeper. Stewart goes on to face Kaine, a powerhouse in Democratic politics who enjoys wide name recognition

as the sitting senator and former governor who ran for the vice presidency alongside Hillary Clinton two years ago. Kaine went unchallenged by any Democrats in the primary and has amassed a war chest of more than $10 million against the far less funded GOP field. By just after 8:30 p.m. Stewart was leading 44.4 percent to 43.6 percent against Freitas, with minister and conservative commentator E.W. Jackson running far behind with 12 percent of the tally. By 9 p.m. Stewart pulled even farther ahead and the race was called in his favor. Stewart won with more than 133,000 votes statewide and overwhelmingly won Prince William County, which he says is an advantage that will help him in the general election. Hundreds of supporters gathered

at a Woodbridge marina restaurant to cheer on the candidate, who appeared shortly after winning the primary. “It’s a lot better to win by 1.4 [points] than to lose by 1.2,” Stewart told the boisterous crowd, referring to his narrow margin of winning Tuesday versus his close loss in last year’s gubernatorial primary, as supporters pushed toward the stage and chanted his name. Stewart said it had been “a very, very tough race” and congratulated Freitas for the effort he ran. “He’s one heck of a campaigner,” he said, adding that Freitas has “got a future” in state and national politics. He also thanked Jackson for the campaign. STEWART

“It’s going to take all of us working together, folks. I hope you will follow me as we reach out to all Republicans,” he said. “Virginia can choose to continue with prosperity and the progress of America under President Trump, or it can choose the past with everything we know that has failed, and that’s Hillary Clinton’s running mate Tim Kaine.” Stewart focused on health care reform based on free-market principles, making Trump tax cuts permanent, and focusing on the economy and immigration in his remarks after winning. Signaling the likely rough tone of the contest ahead, Kaine immediately pounced on Stewart’s win Tuesday night

just minutes after the race was called, with his communications director Ian Sams releasing a statement in response, calling Stewart a “cruder imitation of Donald Trump who stokes white supremacy and brags about being ‘ruthless and vicious,’” and saying he would be an “embarrassment for Virginia in the U.S. Senate, where he would eliminate health care for millions of Americans and slash public education funding.” “In sharp contrast, Tim Kaine is fighting to make Virginia and our country work for all, where good jobs, health care and education are available to everyone and all people are treated with dignity and respect,” Sams said. “That’s the choice voters face in November and we will keep working hard in every corner of Virginia to win voters’ support.”

Veterans, in particular, are more likely holds is that 22 veterans a day commit national disgrace, but probably a topic for another column. Included in this data is a major increase in the number of suicides committed by young people. It’s hard to understand why someone who has their whole life ahead of them would want to commit suicide. But somehow, not easily explained, there seems to be a hopelessness that’s infected a lot of young people. And suicide is one of the consequences. It may surprise some people, but suicide can be contagious. It’s almost another and another. Celebrity suicides are a particular concern. Some people, in a distressed

America does not have a “suicide culture,” but we do have a suicide problemmore questions than answers. However, on a personal level, there is one thing we can all do: We can listen a lot more. If someone you know, casually or closely, a work colleague, a friend, a schoolmate, whomever, talks about suicide or hints at it, don’t take it lightly. Whether it’s at church, work or school, tell them this kind of talk is worrisome, that you’re concerned about them and ask how you can help. It also might require leaving your relationship’s comfort zone. Telling a teacher, the principal, the minister or your boss could damage your relationship with this person. But it could save their life. Other avenues of addressing this issue include more mental health research, and more mental health resources in our communities that average citizens know how to reach. If someone is desperate enough to be thinking about suicide, then there should be somewhere to turn. And one more thing: the suicide hotone to talk to, can be extremely helpful.

It is sort of a 21st century Tower of Babel in our reading, writing and thinking—resulting in our caring less if we can communicate clearly, accurately, with complete thoughts and a well-chosen vocabulary. Also in the 1950s, there was a novelty song that may have been prophetic regarding how we communicate today. This was titled the “Magic Song” from the Disney movie “Cinderella.” It is more commonly known as “Bibbidibobbidi-boo” and the opening lyrics tell us:

Putting thoughts into the spoken or written word is being replaced by our “cut and paste” world of communication. From the president on down, tweets, twitters and other condensed communication with abbreviated terms are transmitted daily. The limited vocabulary used does not give complete thoughts, only the sound bites of information that can be mere opinion. Our communication skills deteriorate to something like Tarzan speech: “Me Tarzan, you Jane.” And this has become so acceptable that leaders of countries tweet their messages using abbreviations and terse

language that leaves the reader to figure out the meaning. We can accept it, build our opinions on it and transmit it to others in the same terse language. We have become the information “tweetie birds” of the no- time-to-think world. In the 1950s, the question-like statement, “Why Johnny can’t read” told us that there was a problem with how we were teaching or not teaching reading skills.

If she makes her way to Congress, she will be the first black woman to represent Virginia in the House of Representatives. “I’ve been told “no” and “you can’t do that” too many times in my life, but I’ve overcome obstacle after obstacle in my life to get where I am today,” Williams said. “I’m ready for this challenge.” The district is ready for change, Williams said, and for a woman like her to represent the residents. Williams, 49, is a resident of King George County and the married mother of six children. She works for SAIC as a strategic planner, solving issues for the federal government. During her career, she has helped create the TSA program, hiring nearly 70,000 airport security screeners after Sept. 11, 2001, in addition to being tapped to revive a space-flight program after the 2003 Columbia space shuttle disaster. She has also been a project manager for various construction, IT, national security and government projects.

The election will take place Nov. 6. During his current term, much of Wittman’s focus has been on the Chesapeake Bay and on Washington, D.C.’s U.S. Navy shipbuilding plans. Willams’ platform includes improvements in transportation and education, single-payer health care and a crackdown on gun violence, including an assault-weapon ban. She has also spoken in favor of solar farms, tax incentives for businesses that help employees further their careers and improvements in rural communities. Her INVEST initiative (Income Now for Veterans, Enlisted Military Families, Safety Officers and Teachers) calls for the first $50,000 of federal income tax to be exempt for those groups. “When I made the decision to run for Congress, I knew that I couldn’t do this alone,” said Williams. “…None of this would be possible without the people who knocked on doors, made phone calls, donated and even tweeted about this race. Thank you to everyone that made this happen.”

Gavin relishes first season at Lynchburg » BY DAVID DRIVER

FOR INSIDENOVA

It does not bother Brigid Gavin in the least that she played in just four of 17 matches this past season for the Lynchburg College women’s lacrosse team. “It was honestly … I am trying to explain it. It was a wonderful opportunity,” said the Colonial Forge High graduate. “I learned so much. We had such a strong team. I enjoyed myself every single game, cheering on my teammates. I did not realize how little I played.” Gavin was a freshman attack and did not score for the Hornets, who were 9-8 overall and 6-2 in the Division III Old Dominion Athletic Conference. Lynchburg lost 16-10 to Randolph-Macon in the ODAC semifinals May 5. One of her teammates with Lynchburg was senior Sidney Gleason, from Forest Park High School, who was Gavin’s travel coach a few years ago. Could Gavin see more action next year? “Certainly if I work hard,” said Gavin, adding that the team will have a lot of junior and senior attack players in 2019. Gavin played four years of lacrosse at Colonial Forge High but was not sure she was going to play in college. “As far as playing in college, I had not given it much thought until the middle or end of my junior season,” she said. “My opportunities were kind of limited for college at all.”

But she was in the Lynchburg area visiting her father, a Stafford resident who travels around the East Coast recruiting for the U.S. military. “It was total by chance. I was coming down to visit him for his job,” she said. “The coaches were there [at Lynchburg College] so I ended up meeting with them. It was exactly what I wanted. If you are not playing a varsity sport, you are playing a club sport. I just fell in love with it.” Her father, Mike, played hockey in his youth while her sister, Mattie, played lacrosse at Colonial Forge High. She will be a freshman in the fall at VCU in Richmond and may play club lacrosse. Gavin is studying international relations and for a few days last winter was part of a trip to India through a six-credit program at Lynchburg College. She had been to Europe but had never travelled to India or that part of the world. “We stayed the first part in New Delhi. It was a very interesting to take on the world,” she said. She is one of several Colonial Forge products who played lacrosse in college this spring. The head coach of Lynchburg is Bruce Reid, a 1982 University of Maryland graduate who has been the coach of the Hornets for 16 years. “When we started in the spring, Brigid was concerned about being prepared be-

cause she traveled abroad, but she worked hard to and improved as we began the season,” Reid wrote in an e-mail. “Brigid continued to work hard to improve her level of play. It was an adjustment for her but she showed signs of improvement. “As we began conference play in April, Brigid was at her best. She worked hard playing attack, helping our offense and defense improve. Brigid had several opportunities to play and this helped her gain confidence. At the end of the semester, we were excited for Brigid’s academic success and athletic contributions.” Reid added that, “Brigid finished the season with a 3.2 GPA and is working this summer to improve [her] level of play. The coaching staff appreciated Brigid’s willingness to help another team and she continued to show her commitment to our program. We feel that Brigid had a positive first year and we are looking forward to her return in the fall.” GW baseball has three players drafted George Washington University baseball had three players taken in the MLB draft June 4-6: Isaiah Pasteur in the 13th round by the Yankees; Will Kobos in the 19th round by the Pirates; and Robbie Metz in the 25th round by Colorado. It was the most picks at the school since six players were taken in 2002. Pasteur was the Atlantic 10 player of the year and is from Westminster, Maryland. The head coach of GW is Gregg Ritchie,

Brigid Gavin was visiting with her father in Lynchburg when she met the Lynchburg College coaches and found the program was exactly what she wanted. JAYE WINEMILLER/LYNCHBURG SPORTS

a North Stafford High graduate and a former hitting coach for the Pirates. Colonial Forge High grad at Lincoln Memorial Kennedy Buechner was a sophomore attack this season for the women’s lacrosse team at Lincoln Memorial University. She had 40 goals and 12 assists.
