Family finds ‘notes of love’

Second Democrat wants to represent 2nd District ALEX KOMA

A

second Democrat is launching a bid to replace retiring Del. Mark Dudenhefer, R-2nd District, and represent parts of Prince William and Stafford counties. Jennifer Carroll Foy announced earlier this month that she plans to challenge Josh King for the chance to square off against Republican Laquon Austion this November. Dudenhefer announced in early January that he won’t be running for reelection. According to her campaign website, Foy JENNIFER FOY works as a public defender and an adjunct professor at Northern Virginia Community College. She hails from Petersburg, but currently lives in Woodbridge with her husband, Jeffrey. “My entire life has been dedicated to public and community service,” she wrote on her website. “As a delegate for the Second District, I would have the opportunity to work on protecting women’s DISTRICT access to reproductive PAGE 13 health care, fighting for

.S. Army Sgt. Timothy “Michael” Goodrich and his family walked through their Embrey Mill home in Stafford County on Monday, greeted by a “Notes of love” ceremony.” Goodrich, his wife Jacqueline and

their children, Lucy, 7, and Tag, 4, were surprised with the news on Veterans Day that they would be receiving the brand new, custom-built, mortgagefree home. Goodrich was at a Washington Wizards game when he was told. The notes of love ceremony this week brought together Miller &

Smith, Embrey Mill by Newland Communities, the nonprofit Operation FINALLY HOME and about 250 neighbors. There, people left notes of love, inspiration and gratitude at the unfinished home at 401 LOVE Alder Drive in the EmPAGE 13 brey Mill development

ormer Stafford County Supervisor Mark Dudenhefer plans to run for another term on the board of supervisors.

He served as a supervisor from 2005 to 2011, two of those years as the board chairman. Dudenhefer, who once led the Garrisonville District and left for a stint as a 2nd District delegate, said in January that he would not seek re-election.

He said then that it was clear that he could better serve God, his family and fellow man by pursuing a different course. Dudenhefer was a delegate in Richmond for two terms. He won the seat in

2011, then lost it to Michael Futrell in 2013. In 2015, he was elected again. Laura Sellers currently represents the Garrisonville District on the board of supervisors. She ran her campaign as a Democrat but then left the Democratic Party. She plans to run again as an independent, facing Dudenhefer and any Republican challenger.

Aycock seeks Democratic nomination for 88th District Hartwood resident Stephen R. “Steve” Aycock has announced his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for Virginia House of Delegates District 88, which includes portions of Spotsylvania, Stafford and Fauquier counties and the city of Fredericksburg. Ac c o r d i n g t o Aycock, the current delegate has been there too long doing little to make lives better for the citizens of the district: “I believe the progress we’ve made in free- STEPHEN dom, social justice, R. AYCOCK health care, and economic stability is being threatened, and the incumbent representative for House District 88 has and continues to lead us backwards instead of forward.” Delegate Mark L. Cole currently represents the 88th District. “He’s holding us back from redistricting reform, attempting to squelch citizens’ right to vote, and fighting efforts to provide people with the health care they need,” said the Fredericksburg-area pastor in a news release. Aycock’s work over the years has shown that he cares about what goes on in people’s lives, the release states. He came to the area in 1992 with his wife, Pam, to serve as executive director of the Fredericksburg Area Baptist Network. He retired from that post in 2015 but continues to work as associate pastor for Missions at the Real Life Community Church. Prior to coming to the Fredericksburg area, he served with the Baptist Home Mission Board for 20 years in Kansas and in Richmond. As a young man attending seminary in Kansas, Aycock recognized he could do the most good in community ministry rather than primarily preaching. The community ministry included working with prisoners, refugees, homeless persons, senior adults and families in poverty. That community ministry has been evidenced locally as he is a founder of Stafford Junction, a program for high-need children and youth and their families. He also helped deaf and hard-ofhearing people, and the Bragg Hill Family Life Center. Aycock’s civic activities have include Rotary and ministerial associations. He is a strong supporter of religious liberty, equal rights for all, public education and women’s health. “Our communities are stronger when we work together, support one another, and respect one another,” he said. The 66-year-old resident of Cardinal Forest in south Stafford said it looks like the new administration in Washington is going to come down hard on public schools and environmental protections. “We need to counter those efforts at the state level and that will require new representation for the 88th District. As Americans, we also need to honor our diversity rather than stir up fear and hatred.”

NAACP youth council members discuss several topics during a recent meeting.

Stafford NAACP branch attends training sessions The Stafford County Branch of the NAACP was part of training sessions that featured the state president and the national regional director. The training was offered after branch elections brought in new individuals into leadership positions, according to Stafford NAACP President Trimetria Singleton. Youth council members also met recently and discussed the new administration, issues occurring at school, upcoming speaker series topics and their general concerns. The youth council recently hosted a community-wide free screen-

ing of the movie "Hidden Figures," which received an overwhelming response. Additionally, the branch helped in bringing "Hidden Figures" author Margot Lee Shetterly to the area. Members of the youth council also traveled to New York City for the NAACP National Board of Directors meeting. The youth council meets at Porter Library the first Saturday of each month from 10 a.m. to noon. There also is an adult branch that meets the first Monday of each month.

The neuter scooter will pick up cats and dogs at 7 a.m. from the animal shelter parking lot located at 14807 Bristow Road in Manassas. The animals will be safely transported to Loving Touch Animal Hospital in Fredericksburg for the procedures. The mobile unit will return the pets to the animal shelter parking lot at 6:30 p.m. for owner pick up. All dogs are required to have a heartworm test. If a dog has heartworms, the doctor cannot perform surgery as this could be fatal. The hospital also requires a pre-anesthesia panel and IV catheter for pets over the age of seven years, to make sure the senior pet can process the anesthesia before performing surgery. There are costs associated with these requirements so if the pet already has vaccines and a heartworm test, the owner must have a veterinarian fax the records to Loving Touch Animal Hospital prior to the day.

It is the policy of the newspaper to correct all errors. If you have a concern about a story or photo published, please contact the editor at (571) 208-8059.

Editor’s note: The following is a reader response on InsideNoVa to Harvey Gold’s column titled “Cast an eye to the future.” *** It is a shame no one from Stafford County has chimed in with the prophecy you have bestowed upon the general public concerning the unbridled growth that is running way ahead of the infrastructure. I often wonder how the indigenous folks allow such things to sneak by. Certainly anyone currently serving the BOS, with the exception of Snellings (he was a P.E. teacher at the old Stafford elementary) are in my opinion, not from these parts. And yes that is a pointed statement. You can’t shoehorn the bottleneck we have in Stafford by forcing everyone going south or north down thru route 1 on a more than not, busy weekend. Even the shortcuts are no secret anymore. Personally the bypass was the best option. but that’s not going to happen in my lifetime, for certain. Interestingly the pay for as you go express lane was a good idea until our leadership of Stafford County decided to allow it to dump off right in front of route 610. Was it ignorance or stupidity that allowed that boondoggle to happen. The smart thing would have been to take it to the Rappahannock River Falmouth side. Two things would have happened. One, people would spend in Stafford county along the route 17 corridor, increasing revenue by bailing off there and spending on the way home. And the state could have paid the bill for running the express lane across the river, instead of Stafford getting duped into it. A little late now, isn’t it. Editor’s note: The following are reader comments on InsideNoVa.com to a story on “Organizers hoping to bring anti-Trump fervor of the ‘Women’s March’ to Manassas.” *** OMG I not sure about anyone else, but how do these people find the time to protest, riot and all, do they NOT work?? I am a woman, I vote, I work full time and I don’t have time to riot, protest every time I don’t get my way, why because I have bills to pay and right now my rights as a woman are not being taken away from me.. Get a life, or a job 3 minutes of fame is all you get. *** I have not seen any riots in PWC and I’m pretty sure you’re not going to see any. Riots are MUCH DIFFERENT that protesting. One is not the same as the other. I’m not willing to destroy my own community to voice a disservice, but I am willing to

stand up for those that are unable to. Many of my fellow PWC citizens do work and have families, but are willing to take time off from work or spend time away from their family (or bring their children with them) in order to ensure our public officials know our opinion literally. You summed up as to why you’ve got no concerns right now, because you feel that “my rights as a woman are not being taken away from me”. I am happy you vote and work full time, but what about your neighbors, your community, and your sphere of influence? Do they vote? Do they (or you) participate in efforts that will improve the community? With a screen name of “Welltoobad” I would not be hard pressed to make that call, but I will reverse judgment at this time. *** Plus as a woman, on average she earns 20 percent less than male counterparts; you’re not there yet. But the worst part about the ban is that it’s irrelevant fearmongering and not a real security issue. Look behind the curtain folks... *** Ouch!! Lotsa angry folks about other folks who are speaking out. Did they complain when the Tea Party protested? Unless you are a Native American, you are the offspring of immigrants and should understand what that means. Because you are born here gives you no greater rights than a naturalized citizen. Also, as the article states the protests are peaceful and courteous to elected officials unlike some Tea Party fracases. It’s unfortunate that the reporter characterizes the protesters as left wing. For sure, some of the 2.84 million majority nationally and 212,000 Virginians who voted for the losing side were righties and may be among the protesters. This is especially true where the issues are less rigidly partisan such as the ACA, gun control, immigration. Such characterizations only feed the already overheated political divide, including that of two Virginias. *** I am SO tired of these whiny liberals! They are behaving like a spoiled child who throws a temper tantrum when he doesn’t get his way. They think it’s okay to protest, riot and boycott because the election didn’t turn out the way they wanted. TOO BAD! GET OVER IT! TRUMP IS YOUR PRESIDENT! We endured Obama and his pathetic “leadership” for eight long years. We didn’t like it, but we certainly didn’t think it gave us permission to misbehave. Accept what is, and move on! *** Yes, and we’re experiencing those consequences now. And they ain’t pretty.

Righto!!! You did not need permission to misbehave. Joe Wilson’s “You lie” during the SOTU. Mitch McConnell’s refusal to conduct hearings for Judge Garland. Roxanna, think of the possibility that these protests [which are not riots nor boycotts] are the reflection of deeply held convictions about political policies with which they don’t agree. The protesters may not all be liberals or whiners, especially given the peaceful character of the protests. Perhaps it’s merely your disagreement with the message of the protesters that makes you angry and tired. That’s your right also. *** Editor’s note: The following are comments at InsideNoVa.com to a story about “Snakehead infiltrates Virginia waters and legislation.” *** According to the article, this legislation was requested by a state agency to help preserve fishing in Virginia, by establishing a more effective deterrent to people who deliberately introduce the invasive snakehead fish into new bodies of water. There is no evidence of government waste or corruption or some left-wing conspiracy. *** This fish has been here for years, so why now are people opening their mouths? is there free money out there? someone want taxpayers money for something else?-- another study? this is nothing more than a waste of taxpayers’ money must be a democrat.opening their mouths. *** Editor’s note: The following are reader comments on InsideNoVa.com to the story “Residents protest Corey Stewart’s search for undocumented immigrants” *** I support Mr. Stewart and his efforts to enforce the law 100%. InsideNOVA should note that nearly all comments are along the same lines, and your efforts to spread vitriol are humorous/ponderous at best, and becoming disturbing to those of us who still believe in the rule of law. *** I would like to know where those criminals are. Late last year a young Latino male was shot and killed in my neighborhood by gang members. I would hope that if they were turned over to Immigration for deportation that someone would be keeping track so that they would not be allowed back to harm someone else. We have a terrible gang problem in Prince William County and something needs to be done.

Colonial Forge eyes state gymnastics title » BY DAVID STEGON

For InsideNoVa

The all-around podium at the 6A South Region gymnastic meet tells a story about the Colonial Forge gymnastics team, but not the whole story. With Jessie Addo and Lexi Holbrook taking the top two spots in the all-around competition, Colonial Forge boasted the top two gymnasts at the meet. To edge rival Ocean Lakes, though, the Eagles would still need more points to take home the title. Enter Sydney Nickens and her injured foot. “A couple of meets before states Sydney stepped on a piece of metal and had a giant cut in her foot. We didn’t know if she would be able to compete,” said Colonial Forge coach Lisa Rankin. As Rankin said, Nickens “taped up her foot and pushed through the pain” to give Colonial Forge’s top two scorers extra help. While Nickens didn’t end up placing in the all-around, her scores were an added bonus for a team looking for every point it could get. “She somehow managed to perform,”

Rankin said. With the regional title in hand, Colonial Forge will look for its first team state championship in gymnastics this Friday at Patriot High School. The individual competition will takes place on Saturday, also at Patriot. Rankin said she’s trying not to have high expectations, but it is hard not to be excited after the regional meet. She expected South Lakes, who Colonial Forge beat 146.550-144.450 in regionals, will be the stiffest competition. Addo, Holbrook and Mickens will each compete in the all-around competition, while Tory Garrett will compete on the bars, beam and floors as Colonial Forge’s main competitors. Addo, a junior, and Holbrook, a senior, have been standout performers their entire careers at Colonial Forge, but the regional performance highlighted the potential of each. Rankin said that meet was the first time the two finished in the top two spots in the all-around during a meet this season, although they both typically reach the platform. “Jessi can complete some pretty big

skills and Lexi has always been a standout performer,” Rankin said. “I was super excited to see their success and pleasantly surprised they finished where they did.”

oriented. I met with the coach and his family and they were really nice. Some of the players are from the same area.” The Rams roster includes junior forward AJ Carr, who is from Fairfax. Carr was second on the team in scoring in his first 22 games as he averaged 15.4 points per contest. “Last year we only lost one senior. This year we will lose two seniors. We are still pretty young,” Burgess said.

Stafford resident Winston Burgess has held his own in his first two seasons of college basketball in the competitive Division II Mountain East Conference. But he also knows he has to get better – and bigger – in one of the top conferences in the country. Burgess is a sophomore forward for Shepherd University in West Virginia. “I want to gain more weight,” said Burgess, a graduate of Colonial Forge High School. “I feel that is one of my biggest problems coming into the league. It is tough being 205 pounds and going up against guys who are 230 or 240.” Among the teams that Shepherd faces in conference play is West Liberty, which was ranked No. 2 in the country as of Feb. 8; Fairmount State, which was ranked fourth; and Wheeling Jesuit, which has also been ranked in the top 16 this year. Shepherd lost 97-75 on Feb. 1 to West Liberty and then fell 86-66 to Wheeling Jesuit three days later as Burgess had eight points and two rebounds. Burgess, a 6-foot-8 forward, averaged 24 minutes, 5.3 rebounds and 8.2 points per contest in his first 22 games this season. “He has come a long way offensively and defensively,” said Justin Namolik, the Shepherd head coach. “I think this summer if he commits to getting in the weight room, it will benefit him. I think he has started virtually every game since he has been here. I recruited him to defend and rebound for us.” “He has gotten a lot better. He came in a little raw offensively and he has made a lot of strides. He has the potential to get better offensively. We saw him play with

Shepherd plays Feb. 16 at the University of Charleston and then Feb. 18 at West Virginia State University. As a freshman Burgess played in 28 games, with 26 starts, and averaged 6.4 points, 4.8 rebounds and 0.2 assists. He tied for the team lead in blocks with 21 and also had 11 steals. He scored a careerhigh 21 points in a victory against Virginia Union. Burgess set a career high with 10 rebounds in a game three times as a fresh-

man and he reached double digits in points and rebounds in three contests. “My freshman year for me, it was kind of rough,” Burgess said. “You have to get used to playing a whole different level of basketball. I was put right on the spot. I felt I did pretty well as a freshman. My sophomore year has been kind of a struggle. My role on the team is to defend and rebound.” Burgess attracted attention out of high school from several Division II programs in West Virginia. “I just felt like Shepherd was the best fit because it was not too far from home,” said Burgess, who is studying sports marketing. “The people really seem family EDUCATION

at the Fairview Park Marriott in the Falls Church area. Stephen Fuller, director of an institute named after him at George Mason University, moderated the forum. Building a cadre of future technology workers is crucial, said S. Tien Wong, CEO of Tech 2000 and Appnetic and chairman of Lore Systems. “We need to get these kids while they’re young and train them properly,” he said. Real economic growth will result from disruptive technologies, new innovations and entrepreneurism, Wong said. The government should remove barriers to facilitate employee recruitment and permit business growth, he said. “We need to encourage risk-taking and entrepreneurial thinking,” Wong said. “We have the assets. The role of government should be to help facilitate that.” Jennifer Aument, Transurban Inc.’s general manager for North America, said the company has a highly diverse workforce, 40 percent of which consists of technology professionals. Lacking the needed high-tech talent in Northern Virginia, Transurban has had to build teams in Texas and California to fill those needs, she said. Aument worried that volatility in the nation’s immigration policies could hurt recruiting, but she seemed optimistic elected officials would avoid a fresh round of federal-budget “sequestration” cuts.

The last time federal officials implemented such reductions, it cost Virginia 158,000 jobs and $9.8 billion in direct spending, Gov. McAuliffe told symposium attendees earlier that morning. Despite that possible threat on the horizon, consumer confidence has spiked sharply in the past few months, Aument said. Technology is making it easier for people to form new companies, said Carlson, who suggested business could be improved further if government contracting became more agile and offered more than just mega-contracts. Amazon has an employee-retraining program that focuses workers on their long-term careers, not just the immediate job at hand, Carlson said. The company benefits from Virginia’s highly educated workforce, she added. “You can throw a stone in this room and talk to somebody who’s done amazing things,” she said. “It’s an ecosystem right here.” Aument pressed for more direct foreign investment and said the region also needs world-class educational offerings, a stable regulatory environment and an effective workforce. Transurban’s leaders are “quite confident” about the future and have between $6 billion and $8 billion worth of infrastructure planned for the area. “You should be pessimistic about your commute,” Aument joked.

The Prince William County Office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney Victim Witness Program is seeking candidates to fill a Victim Witness Case Manager position. A Case Manager provides services in accordance with the Virginia Crime Victim and Witness Rights Act and is grant funded by the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services. Duties include: providing written and verbal explanations of Victim and Witness Rights and how to obtain the program's services; providing information and assistance to facilitate notice of judicial proceedings and prisoner status; providing employer and other intercession services; providing accompaniment to court hearings, motions, meetings with prosecutors and law enforcement; assisting victims with completion of notification forms, victims’ compensation applications, confidentiality requests, Victim Impact Statements, restitution requests and any other necessary forms; assisting in obtaining interpreter services for

victims; coordinating with appropriate personnel to facilitate closed preliminary hearings and/or use of closedcircuit testimony; performing activities for the Program such as drafting correspondence, maintaining client and program records, and producing programmatic, statistical, and financial reports; providing crisis intervention services and referrals for counseling and other human services agencies.

For his service he received a Purple Heart medal, an Afghanistan campaign medal with campaign star and the Iraq campaign medal with campaign star. “It is an honor and a privilege to gather with family, friends and members of the community and surround the Goodrich family with notes of love…” said Dale Hall, vice president of Miller & Smith.

Working out of our McLean office with work from home options, this rep will sell print and digital advertising to local businesses. You’ll be given a book of business but will be expected to build that territory. The ideal candidate will have some business-to-business sales experience, but it does not necessarily have to be in the media industry.
