Mechanicsville-based nonprofit aids homeless I Am Charity travels to nation’s capital to offer relief Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com I Am Charity partnered with Families Forward Family Emergency Shelter to bring change to Washington, D.C.’s, homeless families The Mechanicsville-based nonprofit I Am Charity hosted a charity drive to help aid the nation’s capital’s homeless community on Saturday, Jan. 16, at the Families Forward Family Emergency Shelter located on the D.C. General Hospital campus. The charity group made a two-hour trip to provide relief to more than 100 homeless families by donating clothing, toys, baby equipment and school supplies. Founded in 2006, I Am Charity is a grassroots nonprofit, 501c 3 organization designed to help victims of natural disasters and poverty. Created by Virginia native Adaeze Amaram, I Am Charity recently made headlines by providing aid and shelter to Central Virginian families during a string of house fires. The effects of the economic recession have created a startling increase of homelessness in America. According to the National Center on Family Homelessness, more than 1.5 million children are without a home. In D.C., the number of persons residing in supportive housing rose 15 percent in 2009. “On the heels of a recordbreaking snowstorm and freezing temperatures, families are desperate to seek shelter to

Normally the Families Forward Family Emergency Shelter hosts about 33 families during the holiday season. In 2009, the shelter hosted more than 93. This sharp rise sent an alarm to I Am Charity and by the time of the event there were more than 100 families there.

“Making the the trek to Washington, D.C., to help the homeless was a great way to start the new year. Every family that attended our event was served and we are excited to reach out even further in 2010. Our next stop is Haiti,” Amaram said.

Amendments to the “Watch for Children” sign policy were approved last Wednesday by the Hanover County Board of Supervisors following a request for two signs in a Mechanicsville residential area. Supervisors also adopted a resolution asking that the Virginia Department of Transportation install the signs in the Windy Hills Subdivision. Joe Vidunas, of the county’s Public Works Department, said the Roads Committee and Public Works staff did check to make sure the signs met VDOT’s eligibility requirements. He told the supervisors that the signs are generally located on secondary roads within residential areas. County Administrator Cecil R. “Rhu” Harris Jr. recommended the board approve the policy changes and adopt the resolution, which requested VDOT install two signs at specified locations (intersections of Barnette Avenue and Hillview Drive and Clark Circle and Princess Anne Drive), with VDOT secondary road construction funds being used to pay for the work.

Vidunas said neighborhood support had been expressed for the signs. Treasurer Scott Miller appeared before the supervisors last week to provide an update on the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) Select Services operation in his office. A customer service initiative that involves the commonwealth, the county, DMV and its commissioner and the county treasurer, DMV Select is an option for residents to visit convenient locations for vehicle needs. Hanover County’s location opened in Miller’s office in May 2008. As of December 2009, there were 58 DMV Select sites in Virginia. “You can do just about anything related to your car,” Miller said. Services include title, vehicle registration and special plates. “We cannot do anything related to your driver’s license,” he said. He said the DMV’s goal “is to improve customer services by having their offices focus more on your driver’s license and us on your vehicle.” Of the 58 DMV Select sites, Miller said his office is ranked 22nd in volume of transactions. Since it opened almost

The Hanover County Public Schools Division Spelling Bee was held Wednesday, Jan. 27, at the School Board office in Ashland. Sponsored annually by the

two years ago, he said “Word is spreading and people are pretty appreciative.” With a satisfaction rate of 97 percent, the county treasurer said the DMV operation in his office “has been a winning partnership for the Commonwealth and Hanover County.” The benefits, Miller said, include a reduced wait time for citizens, commission fees coming into the county and “service with a smile.” With five percent being received per transaction, Hanover County received $18,737,64 through December. G. Ed Via III, chairman of the Board of Supervisors, said he had been using the service in Miller’s office “ever since you started it up. This is so vastly improved that you just wouldn’t believe it. It’s a great service and I commend you for all you do.” Frank Harksen, director of the county’s Public Utilities Department, approached the board with a “good news presentation.” Supervisors unanimously approved the transfer and appropriation of $451,000 for an Underground Storage Tank program in the Beaverdam District. While the county will be responsible for the design and construction of a waterline

Gandy Elementary; Dana Slayton, grade 5, Kersey Creek Elementary;

along Route 1, Verdon Road and North Telegraph Road, all costs — $377,000 – will be reimbursed. The $451,000 figure includes contingencies and “any unknown conditions.” The project will target cleanups and contaminated groundwater, in addition to providing overall supervision. Harksen said five homes have been identified by the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality as having contaminated wells. He also said the terms and conditions are governed by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Hanover County will be responsible for monitoring the contractors, reporting and auditing many of the requirements. “We are given about 18 months to complete this project,” he said. The supervisors scheduled a public hearing for Feb. 24 as requested by Fred Crosby, chief of Hanover County Fire/ EMS. He said changes, which he referred to as “catching up,” stem from a process started about eight months ago. According to the county administrator’s office, the ordinance “is proposed to see SIGN, pg. 8 `

OPINION | The Local Views From the editor

You spoke — and school leaders listened Dress uniforms and camouflaged fatigues seemed to be the proper attire for the Tuesday, Jan. 26, meeting of the Hanover County School Board. The parking lot was filled with familiar military wear. The presence of the high school cadets came as no surprise. They were there to show their support for continued programs at all four high schools. Changes had been considered in the 2010-2011 budget proposal. Two cadets and a parent addressed the School Board at the public hearing the previous Tuesday. The continuation of the Naval Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps at Lee-Davis High School was paramount to the three. E-mails started coming in and several calls were made to the office the day of the budget adoption checking to see if someone from The Local would be attending. (Yes, yours truly was there.) If was becoming more and more apparent how significant and important the program is to Lee-Davis High. Especially gratifying was hearing and seeing so many young people expressing an interest in their future as well as that of their country. Whether their reasons are to pursue educational opportunities, or to serve this great nation, we can be proud of the strong show of support they organized for their cause. And it worked. Kudos to the members of the School Board for being so receptive and welcoming to all who addressed them on Jan. 19. Bottom line: You spoke and they listened — and everybody wins.

Etc. ☞ Well, we’ve made it over one budget hurdle. Now, Hanover County government prepares for the 2010-2011 fiscal year. County Administrator Cecil R. “Rhu” Harris Jr. and staff having been crunching numbers as they get ready for the Feb. 10 meeting of the Board of Supervisors. What kind of revenue loss can we expect? Will there be job cuts? Stay tuned. Melody Kinser

The right side of his head suffered the worst injury. “It just looked like you took the side of his head and slammed it up against something.” Steven, his best friend, was the first to reach him. Trey wasn’t breathing, so Steven shook him. “Trey gasped and started breathing,” Melanie said. One of his friends made the call to 911. Emergency personnel faced a “fairly lengthy evacuation getting him out of the Blazer,” Melanie said. Trey has accomplished in a year’s time what had been predicted to take two. “We were told it could take two years,” Melanie said. “At the end of two years, what you have is what you’re gonna have.” Trey, however, had another plan. He has recovered “way ahead of schedule.” When he returned to the classroom last fall, his aunt said he wasn’t even speaking. Today, he is walking, talking and progressing. He still takes physical therapy, because he continues to have limited use of his right hand — and he is right-handed. The rehab is outpatient and Melanie said Trey is expected “to be in some type of rehab probably for the rest of this year.” He has a “never gonna give up” attitude, because of his

Registration for next school year show 105 at Atlee’s Air Force JROTC, 103 at LeeDavis’s Naval JROTC and 120 at Patrick Henry’s Naval JROTC. Merging units had been considered during the budget proposal process. To maintain the programs, and comply with the military branches’ requirements, a school must have at least 100 cadets. This year, JROTC enrollment is: Atlee, 69; Hanover, 11; Lee-Davis, 13; and Patrick Henry, 115. Glenn T. Millican Jr., who represents the Mechanicsville District on the School Board, said “I think we will be able to find with the cooperation of the Navy and the Air Force to be able to have more of a partnership in terms of recruiting efforts to keep the numbers.” He said it would be “a shame for the programs to dwindle.” For the 2010-2011 year, the School Board has approved a budget of $198,235,940 million, down seven percent, $14,887,040, from the current operating budget of $213,122,980 million. In recommending the bud-

Chairman John F. Axselle III, Beaverdam District, told the crowd that he wanted to “acknowledge the valuable input received through the public comment period, as well as

With the input that we received from you all, it is extremely helpful. We understand your desires, what you want. Every bit of information you gave us has been evaluated.

Looking to 2011-2012, a project beginning budget gap of $11.6 million is anticipated in the system’s financial challenges. “It is important to acknowledge that every jurisdiction is in a different place in this storm,” the superintendent added. “You can tell by the depth of our proposed cuts and the values that we’re seeking to preserve.” What the school district considers as final filters, Roberson said, are sustaining student achievement; continuing to preserve employee wellbeing, and preserving educational opportunities. The 2010-2011 budget calls for the elimination of 52.6 positions. Ashland District member Sue Forbes Watson said, “When you say positions, those are real people and it’s hard [to make the cuts].” Robert L. Wood, Cold Harbor District, said “Cutting this budget has been one of the hardest things I’ve done while serving on this board.” “Projections are gloomy,” Axselle said. “We’ll get through it — it will be painful, but we’ll get through it. “We’re going to try to keep the main thing and the main thing is the children of Hanover County, and I promise you that will be our goal, the main focus.” The School Board also approved the 10-Year Capital Improvement Plan budget of $185,405,100.

VFW, volunteer firefighters and visiting veterans throughout the area. Benefiting the school is another extremely important aspect. Our program does color guards for many ceremonies for the schools, including sporting events, graduations and for individual clubs. During my tenure as commander of these color guards, we have never told someone that we cannot help them. But as I stated previously, the cadet is the one that benefits the most. Whether it is through the building of self-confidence, self-respect, self-discipline or citizenship, a cadet grows in the program. There is no other program currently in existence that can provide the multitude of benefits that NJROTC is able to provide. There also are compelling statistics associated with cadets in the NJROTC program. While, nationally, the rate of disciplinary infractions in the overall school population is 13.94 percent, as compared to the 5.18 percent of JROTC members. Attendance of the overall population is 74 percent, compared to 84.2 percent of JROTC cadets, and, most importantly, the graduation rate of the overall population is 89.4 percent, compared to 94 percent of JROTC cadets. As you can see, JROTC [cadets] perform consistently better than the overall population. The most important thing to remember about JROTC is that it is not a typical class. JROTC is a lifestyle. Many cadets, including myself, have put hours upon hours of time into the program for the past three years. If the program were to move, we would have new instructors, and would be fighting for the same positions as cadets that the instructors have been teach-

Educational system policy Hanover County has been renowned for its schools. Families move here from all over, and at least part of the allure is our quality education system. I am writing this opinion piece because I want our education quality to stay this way. I am aware of a policy in our education system where tenure trumps results. A first year cum laude graduate from VCU with a degree in music education was hired to take over the choral program in one of our high schools for the 2008-2009 school year. She had a phenomenal year taking the choral groups to competitions where they performed better than ever before. The next fall’s enrollment in the choral program was up 15 percent due

to her enthusiasm and success, however, this new teacher was axed to make room for an elementary school strings teacher whose position was eliminated due to budget cuts. This may seem fair with regard to the teacher who has been in the system considerably longer, but what about the kids? The choral program for the 2009-2010 year is literally a joke compared to the previous school year. This tenured teacher may be a fantastic elementary violin teacher but what business would hire her to teacher high school chorus? Hanover County! Some might downplay this action since “we are only taking about the arts”, but look at what we’ve done! A young, talented, energetic, passionate young lady now has a “one year and out” appearance to her resume’ and our children have been cheated out of a high quality education! Many of these children, when they heard the news, tried in vain to back their teacher. At least one parent also approached the “powers that be” without any success. The young teacher appealed her case as far as she could with see LETTERS, pg. 17 `

MRMC receives top honor Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com

804.569.8716 www.mechcovwoods.com

Bon Secours Memorial Regional Medical Center (MRMC) announced last week that a new study ranks its clinical quality among the top five percent in the nation for the last four consecutive years. The study by HealthGrades, the leading independent healthcare ratings organization, analyzed patient outcomes at each of the nation’s 5,000 nonfederal hospitals over the years 2006, 2007 and 2008 and named hospitals in the top five percent as HealthGrades Distinguished Hospitals for Clinical Excellence. “The HealthGrades ranking is in large part attributed to our most important mission, the health, well-being and safety of our patients, and that says that we have our priorities in the right place,” Michael Robinson, CEO, MRMC, said. “This recognition demonstrates an intensive effort across the board at Memorial Regional, of which we are very proud.” According to the eighth annual HealthGrades Hospital Quality and Clinical Excellence study, Bon Secours Memorial Regional Medical Center and the other hospitals in the top five percent demonstrated patient outcomes that far exceeded those of other hospitals. Patients admitted to these hospitals had risk-adjusted mortality rates that were, on average, 29 percent lower than all other hospitals. Risk-adjusted complication rates were, on average, nine percent lower than all other hospitals. Bon Secours Memorial see MRMC, pg. 26 `

My guess is that if this can happen in this case, it has probably happened before and will most likely happen again. If you are aware of a similar situation, you should take a minute to write your story.

I find it rather amusing that Mr. Sneed used Ms. Lucord’s genuine heartfelt concern as a springboard to write a discourse touting his misinformed knowledge of our country’s Founding Fathers’ beliefs and intentions. I hope Ms. Lucord was not offended by his arrogance and simply chalked it up to ignorance. Mr. Sneed is probably just another unfortunate victim of political correctness gone crazy. Thanks to the other contributors who set the record straight for him in recent weeks. The tragic rewriting of our history that is happening in our schools and the dismantling of our Christian heritage should be a deep concern for all of us who desire to preserve the truth.

However, I must respond to his assertion that “The Founding Fathers were adamant that religion in all of its guises be kept entirely separeate and apart from government.� The First Amendment to our Constitution simply restricts one function of one branch of our federal government. Please note that our Constitution requires no “separation of church and state� by our federal Executive and Judicial branches. Nor is there mention of state and local governing bodies, government property and/or public venue. No amount of misinterpretation can change the written words, and thus the intent, of our Founding Fathers on this subject. Were they adamant? Perhaps, but in a very limited way. If the intent of correspondent Sneed’s last paragraph was to berate us all, then he was successful to a degree. But I respectfully submit that he heed his own sage advice. Jeff Wilkins Quinton

The Barksdale Theatre opens its 2010 season with the Southern comedy, “First Baptist of Ivy Gap,” on Friday, Feb. 5. By Ron Osborne and directed by Bruce Miller, “First Baptist of Ivy Gap” will be presented Feb. 5 through March 14 at the historic Hanover Tavern at 13181 Hanover Courthouse Road in Hanover. Publicist Judith W. Crenshaw said “First Baptist of Ivy Gap” is full of humor and pathos. The play introduces “six very different women who come together during World War II at church to roll bandages and plan the church’s 75th anniversary.

“We meet Edith, the pastor’s wise-cracking wife, the witty Luby, Mae Ellen, the rebellious organist and more zany characters. Fast forwarding 25 years, these six women reunite, but much has changed … and hasn’t.” Crenshaw said the production is “reminiscent of that delightful group from ‘Steel Magnolias’.” “First Baptist of Ivy Gap” is part of The Acts of Faith Festival, the nation’s largest faith-inspired theatre event. The panel discussion will take place on Sunday, Feb. 21, immediately following the 2 p.m. performance. (You

construction, deconstruction and now reconstruction of the Bell Creek Road intersection. It is just amazing to see how far they have come with this project. It also is a wonder as to where they go from here. Maybe there is an overpass and a cloverleaf in the picture. There also is another wonder of the world that can be seen in the making on Sliding Hill Road just past the Hanover Airport. They have almost completed “the curve to nowhere.” This marvel only costs $9.3 million to the taxpayers of Hanover County. The only thing that we can figure out is a two-lane road leading to a four-lane curve leading to a two-lane road, just amazing. Hopefully there will be some more money left from the two projects that can be used to possibly dig drainage ditches on Georgetown Road near U.S. 301 to end the constant flooding every time it rains. If not, I guess they can continue to put a sign that warns “High Water” each time it rains. Way to go, Hanover County. On second thought, could a stop light at Sliding Hill Road and New Ashcake Road have solved the problem that led to “the curve to nowhere”? W.H. Robinson Mechanicsville

America must stop Iran The world does not have a lot of time to peacefully prevent Iran, the world’s largest state sponsor of terror, from getting these weapons. It will take the will of key countries to stop Iran — but America must lead by example. While the U.S. House of Representatives overwhelm-

ingly passed the Iran Refined Petroleum Sanctions Act (H.R. 2194) recently by a vote of 412-12, it still must come to the Senate floor for a vote and be signed into law. Majority Leader Harry Reid pledged to bring significant sanctions legislation to the Senate floor after the Senate reconvened on Jan. 20. There is no time to waste. It needs to be passed and put into law now while there is still time to peacefully stop Iran! The biggest stick the international community can wield remains Iran’s dependence on imported gasoline. Iran has not developed enough capacity to refine its crude oil into gasoline. By stopping such imports we can help encourage the regime to either change their policies - or for the regime itself to change. In addition to cutting off gasoline sales, the international community, led by the United States, should provide incentives to foreign banks and companies to eliminate investments in Iran’s energy sector and firms helping the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. America should do all it can to stop Iran without war — but to do that, the Senate and White House must act now! Bill Boyer III Henrico

Black history event looks at the arts Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com

The great history of our country, both the tragedy and the triumph, will be presented in the production of “We Were There: History through the Arts” at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Feb. 5-6, in the Blackwell Auditorium on the campus of Randolph-Macon College in Ashland. The production will present significant stories and events from our country’s history through dramatic readings, dance, poetry and song. This march of history will begin in song with an introduction to early African-American music and its role in the lives of slaves. Then a look at the Emancipation Proclamation (1863) will be presented along with a personal account about one of Hanover’s own sons who served in the Union Army. More dramatic readings and song will share the stories of several individuals who had a significant impact on the lives of African-Americans in the world of arts,

music and sports. After exploring the American Civil Rights movement and the affect Motown had on our country’s people, the production will look at today and what the future may hold for our country. The event will be moderated by local actor Tony Cosby, a native of Richmond and a product of Henrico County schools. He graduated from Highland Springs High School and receives a bachelor of science degree in speech, theater and performing arts from Bowie State University in 1978. Cosby was first asked to portray the role of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during his career with Theatre IV for its 1985 touring production. Two years later, he founded Theatre and Company, the beginning of his 25-year mission of spreading the ideas and dreams of the famous Civil Rights leader. Cosby has performed more than 500 salutes to Dr. King through speeches and performances of The Meeting, a conversation between Dr. King and Malcolm X. He also has produced more than 50 shows with

more than ten local theater companies. On Sept. 26, he directed “A Raisin in the Sun” at the Henrico Theater in Highland Springs. “Raisin” was presented by the Drama Ministry of Rising Mount Zion Baptist Church where Cosby is a member. Residents of Ashland and Hanover County also will participate as storytellers and presenters. The strong voices of the Ashland Community Chorus, under the direction of Lenora Davis, will perform stories told in song. This event, as part of Ashland’s Black History Month celebration, is sponsored by the Hanover Arts & Activities Center, the Hanover-Ashland AARP Chapter, Randolph-Macon College, and the Town of Ashland. Admission to the event is free to adults and children, but donations are appreciated and may be made at the door. For more information, contact The Hanover Arts and Activities Center at 7982728.

Farmers seek support for property rights More than 100 Virginia Farm Bureau Federation leaders asked their representatives to oppose reinstating Virginia’s estate tax, to oppose any legislation that would limit property rights and to support animal care that is science-based and allows production agriculture to remain in business. It was all part of VFBF’s annual Legislative Day Jan. 26

at the General Assembly. “A lot of our elected officials don’t have an agricultural background,” said Trey Davis, VFBF political education and legislative specialist. “That’s why it’s important for our leaders to educate them on bills that will adversely affect their farming operations.” The annual gathering is part of Farm Bureau’s grassroots efforts to get its members involved in the legislative

Forest fire season begins on Feb. 15 Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com The Commonwealth’s 4 p.m. Burning Law goes into effect on Feb. 15 – the start of spring fire season in Virginia. This law prohibits burning before 4 p.m. each day (Feb. 15 through April 30) if the fire is in, or within 300 feet of, woodland, brushland or fields containing dry grass or other flammable materials. A violation of this law is a Class 3 misdemeanor punishable by up to a $500 fine. In addition to the criminal violation, those who allow a fire to escape are liable for the cost of suppressing the fire as well as any damage caused to others’ property. In 2009, there were 837 wildfires that burned 7,494 acres of forest land in the Commonwealth. Citizens burning debris or yard waste continue to be the leading cause of wildfire in Virginia. Arson and equipment use also make up the majority of the fires. For more information on what you can do to protect yourself and your property;

process. “You may wonder if you did any good,” VFBF Director of Governmental Relations Martha Moore told participants during a briefing prior to afternoon meetings with legislators. “Yes, you did.” The day concluded with a legislative reception for which the VFBF Women’s Committee served as hosts. During the reception, Farm Bureau leaders were able to talk with their

representatives in an informal setting. “Legislative Day is fun, and it’s great to see folks from the district that I might not normally see,” said Sen. Frank Ruff Jr., R-Clarksville. “[Legislators are] lousy mind readers, and unless we have a line of communication [with constituents] it’s awfully hard for us to know what they think. “When we can put a name and face together, it makes it

Lessons Learned from a Grouchy Lady By Pastor David Crisp, Senior Pastor f you missed “The View” two weeks ago, it’s because we used our space in the paper to advertise an upcoming event at Hanover Friends: The Love and Respect Marriage Conference Friday and Saturday Feb. 19-20. I am really excited about this conference and encourage you to think and pray about participating! For more information, go to www. friendlychurch.org. Even though I didn’t have a column in the paper, I did write one…and I encourage you to read it on the Web site too. You can also subscribe there to receive “The View” via e-mail. It will help you understand this week’s “View” if you read that one in its entirety.

I

was asked an interesting question this past week about my last two articles. A reader asked how I could write my first article of the year entitled “Prediction – Pain!” which detailed some of my ideas about negative things which might happen in 2010, and then the write my very next article in response to the Haitian earthquake making the case that God is NOT pouring out his wrath on the world through earthquakes, storms, fires, mudslides, tsunamis or any other natural disaster. Her question was, “How could I reconcile the seeming conflict of these two positions?” The answer is easy! In the first article I predicted war, economic crisis and persecution of Christians, among other unpleasant things. But in each case, I spoke of disasters that were all man-made. Every one of these things result from the choices of people – men acting from their Godgiven free will in opposition to God’s revealed will in His Word resulting in painful circumstances for the earth. God does not take our choices from us, but neither will he remove their consequences. Thus, my prediction for 2010? Pain! In the second article, I spoke of events that were NOT manmade, but were natural disasters, like the Haitian earthquake. These come upon the earth because the earth is no longer perfect since the advent of sin. (see Gen. 3) The whole creation is groaning, awaiting its redemption from the curse of sin and death. (Romans 8:20-22) Until that day, we will have sickness and disease and all kinds of natural disasters! (For a detailed, biblically reasoned argument on this, read last week’s “View From Here” at www.friendlychurch.org) I hope that clears things up for anyone else who was wondering! I also received a nasty phone call from an anonymous grouchy lady who took issue with the article of Jan. 6, 2010, “Prediction? Pain!” She told me that I was the most negative person she had ever heard and if I believed all these bad things were coming I must be miserable and I ought to “go ahead and take a gun and shoot myself!” (No kidding!) She also blamed me and “people like me” for society rejecting “organized religion”…and a lot of other rubbish. And you know, she’s got a point…. almost. Paul makes it too. “If in this life only, we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.” In other words, if this life is all there is, and the only “benefit” we get out of being a Christian is to be found here on earth, then we might be happier by not turning the other cheek, not putting others first, not forgiving those who hurt us, etc. But the truth is…this life is NOT all there is! Hallelujah! Get this: “If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith. More than that, we are then found to be false witnesses about God, for we have testified about God that he raised Christ from the dead. But he did not raise him if in fact the dead are not raised. For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either. And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost. If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men. But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.” (1Cor. 15:13-22)

I

suppose if I didn’t believe in the resurrection of Christ, I’d have the same opinion of me as the cranky lady who called. But I believe in the Living Lord! And that makes all the difference! I am not miserable. My heart is filled to overflowing with joy, even as I see hard things coming. For my God has overcome the world! He is more than able! Do you know Him?

By Kenneth G. Upshaw Farm Service Agency The Farm Storage Facility Loan Program helps to ensure that producers have adequate capacity to store their harvested production until they sell it on the open market or feed it to their livestock. The FSFL Program provides low-interest financing for producers of eligible commodities to build or upgrade farm storage and handling facilities. The maximum principal amount of a loan through FSFL is $500,000. Participants are required to provide a down payment of 15 percent, with CCC providing a loan for the remaining 85 percent of the net cost of the eligible storage facility and permanent drying and handling equipment. Loan terms of seven, 10 or 12 years are available depending on the amount of the loan.

February 3, 2010

Interest rates for each term rate may be different and are based on the rate which CCC borrows from the Treasury Department. The following commodities are eligible for farm storage facility loans: ❍ Corn, grain sorghum, soybeans, oats, wheat, barley or minor oilseeds harvested as whole grain or harvested as other-than-whole grain. ❍ Hay. ❍ Renewable biomass. ❍ Fruits (including nuts) and vegetables – cold storage facilities. To file a complaint of discrimination, write USDA, Director, Office of Civil Rights, Room 326-W, Whitten Building, 1400 Independence Avenue, SW, Washington, D.C., 20250-9410, or call 202-7205964 (voice or TDD). Kenneth G. Upshaw is the county executive director of the Hanover/Caroline FSA Office in Hanover.

ing the Woodrow Wilson Rehabilitation Center in Fishersville. “They can help me figure it out,” Trey said about his career options. Melanie said it is “a huge rehabilitation center with work programs and it’s geared a lot toward the younger children who can’t get into the working world because of some type of disability. They just pretty much find out what their goals and their interests are and steer them into that kind of work. He can live there, it’s like it’s own little community.” Religion is a big part of Trey’s life, as well as that of his family, which includes his uncle Robbie and cousin Summer. They make their home in Mechanicsville and attend the Pole Green Church of Christ. Melanie said Trey “is an active baptized member and actually sang at church the Sunday before the accident.” Throughout the ordeal, they have used the theme “Pray for Trey.” Within two weeks of his accident, the community started raising funds to help with medical expenses. The school sponsored a benefit basketball game and Trey has “Go for Gold” bracelets and t-shirts. “It really touched everybody to get involved as a Christian community,” Melanie said. “We probably would have been lost without our faith, our church and just the whole community,” she said.

Each space will showcase a different room, including: a kitchen, breakfast nook, study, family room, bathroom and an environmentally friendly nursery. Other Home Show highlights include the Green Zone sponsored by James River Green Build Council that will feature the latest in solar energy, geothermal, water

filtration systems, Green building products, energy efficient windows, rainwater harvesting and more. Experts on home renovations, design and gardening will be on hand to answer questions each day and knowledgeable guest speakers will offer seminars ranging from fun how-to ideas to more technical garden and home topics. On the garden side, this year’s theme is Glorious Gardens Great and Small, with displays ranging from container garden ideas to grand landscapes. A tour through the gardens revives winter spirits with the fresh scents and sights of springtime. It’s a retreat as well as an opportunity to gather new ideas for outdoor living, ornamental, vegetable and herb gardening. The excitement continues with a chance for show attendees to win a trip for two to the Chelsea Garden Show in London, England.

LOCAL NEWS | News from Mechanicsville Residents

Funding available to help farmers extend the growing season while protecting plants The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) has announced a new pilot project under the “Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food” initiative for farmers to establish high tunnels -- also known as hoop houses -- to increase the availability of locally grown produce in a conservation-friendly way. A seasonal high tunnel is a greenhouse-like structure, at least six feet in height, which modifies the climate inside to create more favorable growing conditions for vegetable and other specialty crops grown in the natural soil beneath it. This pilot will test the potential conservation benefits of growing crops under these structures. Participating farms can receive funding for one high

tunnel. High tunnels in the study can cover as much as five percent of one acre or about a 30x72- foot structure. The incentive payment is based on the square foot of the structure not to exceed a maximum payment of $4,570 per producer for Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) producers and $5,490 for Historically Underserved (HU) clients. Growers will be required to maintain nutrient and pesticide application records during the project. Local farmers who would like to sign up for the high tunnel pilot should call or visit the NRCS office at a local USDA service center. The local service center for Hanover and Caroline counties is located at 13224 Hanover Courthouse Road in Hanover and can be reached at 537-5225. General program information is available on the

NRCS Virginia Web site at www.va.nrcs.usda.gov. “Virginia is one of approximately 40 states participating in a three-year study that will verify if high tunnels are effective in reducing pesticide use, keeping vital nutrients in the soil, extending the growing season, increasing yields, and providing other benefits to growers,” Wade Biddix, assistant state conservationist for NRCS Programs in Virginia, said. “This idea is not new to Virginia,” Biddix said. “Virginia State University has been successfully using hoop houses at their Randolph Farm to grow melons, berries and other crops.” Made of ribs of plastic or metal pipe covered with a layer of plastic sheeting, high tunnels are easy to build, maintain and move. High tunnels are used year-round in parts of the country, providing steady incomes to farmers -- a significant advantage to own-

Randolph-Macon Baseball Preview

Hanover County talent Little details will play big reigns on Jackets’ roster for Macon this season

County players dominate roster

By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Nothing brings more excitement to college athletics than having players from local high schools to root for. As such, the excitement surrounding Randolph-Macon baseball should be substantial this season. Ten former Hanover C o u nt y H i g h School ath-

letes comprise nearly a third of the Yellow Jackets’ roster and of those half are incoming freshmen. Seniors Kevin Davis and Haile Lytton (Hanover), junior Cory Jackson (Patrick Henry) as well as sophomores Jordan Walton and Matt Musser (LeeDavis) continue the tradition of local players at R-MC. But Patrick Henry’s Taylor Seay along with Hanover’s Jeb Weymouth, Tyler Kane, Thornton Glazebrook and Justin T h or n are part of what

is being touted as the best freshman class of Coach Ray Hedrick’s career. More importantly, Hedrick feels each freshman could play a part in this year’s success. “I’d say all of them will have a chance to contribute in some form or fashion,” he said. As far as returning locals in substantial roles, Davis, Lytton and Walton appear to be a solid foundation for the Jackets. Davis will take to the field as R-MC’s top returning hitter. Starting 26 games last see LOCALS, pg. 41`

Detail work key for Yellow Jackets By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com

Last year the RandolphMacon baseball team came into the season riding a wave of momentum. Fresh off their Old Dominion Athletic Conference tournament championship in 2008, the Yellow Jackets were tabbed as the team to beat in 2009. But things quickly fell apart as things got underway. After starting the season 5-1, disaster

struck when junior pitcher Kyle Hicks suffered an elbow injury in his fourth start. Hicks had started off the season in stellar fashion going 2-0 in three starts with 18 strikeouts in 22 innings pitched for an ERA of 2.45. But the March 8 injury sidelined for the rest of the year. “He was throwing the heck out of the ball and doing really, really well,” said R-MC head coach Ray Hedrick. “When he had that injury at HampdenSydney, that was certainly a

downer. That was a deflating moment for our program at that time of year.” The Yellow Jackets began to falter losing eight in a row in a stretch that reached 3-13. “Kyle got hurt and that sort of messed up our pitching rotation,” said outfielder/pitcher Brian Jordan. “I started off as a reliever and ended up being a starter. I was just pitching when need be because I was needed in the outfield and we had another guy that was in the same situation. It was kind of a piece it together year last year. We had guys out for various reasons. So we see DETAILS, pg. 41 `

season, Davis ended the year batting .309 in 110 appearances at the plate. “He’s in the mix at second base,” Hedricks said. “He knows the game, plays the game, a student of the game, very well schooled in the game.” When the Yellow Jackets lost ace pitcher Kyle Hicks to an elbow injury early last season, Lytton played an important role as the team’s top reliever. “We called him our emergency guy out of the bullpen,” Hedrick said. “He’d get us out of jams when we had runners on base; middle of the game, late in the game; he would kind of spell the damage

DETAILS Continued from pg. 40 b

had to kind of put together the season as best we could.” “We just kind of hit a little bit of a bump in the road last year,” Hedrick said. “We may have come into the season thinking we were a little bit better than we were just based on what we had done in 2008.” But the Yellow Jackets managed to bounce back from the losing streak to finish the season on an 11-4 run, tied for second in the ODAC. However, coming into this season Hedrick believes his players are better prepared mentally for what lies ahead. “I think last year we got caught up in the adversity, whatever it may have been, and it effected us more than it probably should have,” he said. “When you’re dealing with 18 to 22 year olds that’s the challenge, getting them to push through it and muddle through it. I think we are all responsible for not dealing with it, like Kyle’s injury, as best we could have.” “I think if we just keep our heads straight we’ll be all right this year,” Hicks said. “Last year we really didn’t keep our heads straight as much as we should. I think we ought to be all right

at whatever time we needed him to come in there.” Lytton’s yeoman work on the mound allowed him to tie the R-MC record for most appearances in a single season with 21. He finished the season with a 3-1 record and a 3.64 ERA in 29.2 innings pitched. “He’ll kind of be using that same role this year,” Hedrick said. “I think he knows what’s going to be expected of him. I couldn’t have been prouder of him last year.” Last year Walton benefited from a chance to ease his way into the college game by sitting behind two senior first basemen on the depth chart. Still, in 34 appearances at the plate, Walton finished the season with a .706 batting average,

hitting three home runs and notching nine RBI. In reserve action at first, Walton finished the season with 83 put-outs, five assists and only one error for a .989 fielding percentage. “He played behind a couple of seniors last year and did an exceptional job in his limited time,” Hedrick said while pointing out that the pressure will be on Walton to perform this year. “He’s going to be thrown into the fire as a sophomore.” But at the same time, Hedrick feels Jordan is certainly up to the task. “We’re very fortunate to have Jordan and I’m hoping for some big things this year,” he said. According to Hedrick, being less than six feet tall is the only thing that has kept Walton

from playing baseball at a much higher level in college. Playing American Legion ball over the summer, Hedrick said that Walton definitely caught the eye of VCU head coach Paul Keyes. “Coach Keyes would rave about Jordan, asking if we wanted to make a trade,” Hedrick laughed. “He’s that kind of a player. “If he was 6-2 and had a little more power he probably wouldn’t be at RandolphMacon,” Hedrick said. “I don’t want him to become 6-2 with power,” the coach joked. Walton’s former C-fed teammate Musser will see time but sits behind upper classmen at catcher. Musser suffered an elbow injury last season and underwent surgery but is back to 100 percent coming into this

year. Among the incoming freshmen, currently Weymouth has separated himself from the rest of the pack and will likely see time in the starting lineup. “He brings a lot to the table,” Hedrick praised Weymouth’s versatility at both catcher and fielder. “I think he’s best in the outfield. He can run. He can throw; just a hard-nosed, gritty player.” Glazebrook could also see important playing time this season as a freshman. “He’s a situational kind of role-player this year for us,” Hedrick said. “Spot outfielder here or there, pinchrunner. I think the kid can bunt. He can do some things late in the game that can cause him to get some at-bats and do some

productive things for the program.” Seay could find himself in the mix as a starting pitcher because Hedrick feels the former Patriot has his best years on the mound in front of him. Hedrick feels that pitchers Kane and Thorn are still adjusting to the college game but both should see important time on the mound as the season progresses. However, among locals, Hedrick feels the most impressive storyline on the team clearly goes to the junior, Jackson. “He’s probably our hardest working player at this point,” the coach said. “He has really gone from being an average to below average college player to really giving himself a shot.”

this year.” Therefore Hedrick believes the key to this year’s success will derive from the Jackets’ ability to concentrate on the finer points of baseball. “Just being able to do the little things,” he said. “Being able to make plays on defense, handle bunts, be able to pitch in crucial situations. The little details of hitting; hitting a ball, hitting behind runners, moving runners up, hitting and running, getting dirt ball reads. “These are all little things that don’t really show up on box scores but if we’re going to be successful in the box scores then we’re going to have to do the things that don’t show up in the box scores,” Hedrick said. “We’re going to need to be able to do them well. I think that will be the key to success. That could be the difference between being 5 to 7 games over 500 to being 2 to 3 games under 500.” Hedrick also pointed out that the style of this year’s team will be much different than last season. In 2009, R-MC was among the nation’s best, belting out 48 home runs with a team .477 slugging percentage. “We don’t have a team that’s going to hit 50-60 home runs,” Hedrick said. “Last year we were top 10 in the country in home

runs. That’s not our team this year. We’ve got to go out and be able to pay attention to the details.” Though no starting lineup has yet be set for he season, Hedrick expects he will need to rely on one or two first year players. “We’ve got a lot of older guys to put into positions and I think we’re getting some guys coming into some new positions that they’ve been forced to take on due to injuries and roster changes,” he said. After undergoing surgery over the summer, Hicks will be back on the mound at 100 percent but bringing a new attitude to the field this season. Though eligible for a redshirt, Hicks is approaching this season with the insight that his continued baseball career depends on it. “I think he sees the urgency in it and the window is slowly shutting and he doesn’t want to fall into that category of baseball quitting him,” Hedrick said. “He wants to have the choice to quit baseball and realizes he he’s got four, five, maybe six months before that fear could become a reality so he’s put in the effort and the time. “Through his work ethic and attitude and he’s bought in this year more than in the past,”

Hedrick said. Hedrick also pointed out that Hicks could be motivated by the success of his younger brother John who was a part of the University of Virginia’s run to the College World Series last year. “I can’t read minds but I’m sure that lit a little fire,” Hedrick said. “I mean, he’s proud of his brother. They’re a very close-knit family. I do think that Kyle seeing that kind of success and seeing his brother do well, I think there’s a lot more there with Kyle that we haven’t seen yet.” Besides Hicks, the Jackets return junior James Bierlein (3.40 ERA) and Haile Lytton (3.64 ERA) to the mound as their top pitchers. Other returning starters include senior Kevin Davis and junior Greg Mitro who batted .309 and .302 last season. Sophomore Brian Jordan was 3-for-4 on stolen bases last year batting .292 and junior catcher Jay Lichter led the team with a .394 on base percentage. Hedrick feels that Lynchburg, Va. Wesleyan, Bridgewater, Hamden-Sydney and Washington & Lee could all be in the running for the ODAC title this year. Where does R-MC fit into that mix? “We’re no better than

anyone else but I don’t think anyone is a whole lot better than us,” Hedrick said. “It’s just those little details that are going to make a difference.” Weather permitting, the RMC season gets underway with a double-header at St. Mary’s MD on Feb. 6 before the Yellow Jackets return for their home openers against Methodist and Greensboro in the ODAC/USAS

Challenge on Feb. 13. The true test of the R-MC’s season will come during the middle of March when the Jackets host Lynchburg, travel to Bridgewater then return home to face Va. Wesleyan. Another big local game on the Jackets schedule will come on Mar. 9 when R-MC will play at VCU in a game to benefit the Children’s Miracle Network.

Hawks keep Raiders winless in district Football duo Trsic and Rogers hook up in roundball By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Throughout the football season the connections between Hanover quarterback Sam Rogers and wide receiver Danny Trsic were key in the Hawks ride to the Group AAA Div. 5 state semifinal game. On Thursday night at Atlee it was Rogers and Trsic going to work on the Raiders for a 60-55 win, only this time it was in the game of basketball. But the performance was nothing new for Trsic. The oft-overlooked senior has become so reliable in the post that Hanover head coach Troy Manns had nicknamed him Double-Double. “He always gets a doubledouble,” Manns said. “He’s so solid. If he were four more inches tall he would be a Division I prospect. He plays hard. He’s smart and he does what you ask him to do. He competes. Anytime there’s a challenge he wants to step up to it.” Against Atlee, Trsic once

again notched a double-double. Despite burning the Raiders for 18 points, Trsic said he is not an offensive player. “I know that’s not my role so I just try to put all of my emphasis on rebounding and scoring on putbacks and getting defensive stops,” he said. Most of Trsic’s scoring came from boxing out the Raiders, getting to the ball first and putting it back in the basket, something he has a distinct ability for. “To me it’s all about position and just fight,” he said. “It’s who wants the ball always has a chance to go get it.” “Some people just have a knack for the ball and he has it,” Manns said. “I just wish he was about maybe 6-5.” Seemingly built from the same mold as Trsic is Rogers who continues show outstanding leadership and maturity in his freshman year at Hanover. “He’s just a leader,” Manns said. “He’s like Danny, where he competes. These guys compete, compete, compete and because he competes he brings other people with him. And having him on the floor is like having another leader on the floor. He comes over and he’s asking me a million questions during timeouts. He’s organizing guys

and that’s what you want. The biggest attribute a point guard has to have is not ball handling ability, it’s leadership and that’s what he has.”

Rogers doesn’t attribute his leadership and confidence to his outstanding football season but from the basketball players that surround him. “I was just trying

to work myself on the team and then a lot of players have helped me,” he said. “Helped me get more comfortable with the team and eventually I was able to get more playing time. “I think the players around me are giving me a lot of confidence, telling me any mistake I make, keep my head up,” he said. “Coming out of football season I wasn’t really comfortable with anything, sort of still in football mode.” Against Atlee, Rogers showed both shooting touch from outside and the ability to drive into the post, scoring nine points in he game. Though still winless in Capital District play, Atlee (0-9 Capital, 5-11) showed they are a team much improved over the beginning of the season. The problem for the Raiders was,

Hanover (3-6, 6-10) has also grown since that time. “At first we got off to a slow start and the football guys came in,” Trsic said. “All together we started playing like a team. Over the course of the year we started to gain our chemistry and right now I think we’re playing our best basketball.” Against Atlee, Hanover struck quick on back-to-back put-back baskets from Trsic, racing out to an 8-1 lead in the first three minutes of the game. But the Raiders regrouped on both ends of the court. Barrett Prince (12 points) scored on a reverse then Kyle Rodgers (6 points) connected on backto-back baskets. When Rueben Rucker (7 points) scored at the one minute mark he capped an 8-0 run by the Raiders and gave see HAWKS, pg. 43 `


Raiders in a zone on way to rivalry victory Hill sparks offense with 27 points in the winning effort

www.mechlocal.com See slideshow online!

By Dave Lawrence Media General News Services Atlee’s shallow roster seemed like it might prove a huge liability in the second quarter of its Capital District girls basketball contest against visiting Hanover on Friday night. While the Raiders caught up with the Hawks six minutes into the second quarter, four of their seven players had picked up two fouls apiece. A switch to a zone defense didn’t hurt, however, as the Raiders, driven by a 27point performance by Brittany Hill and a 12-2 run in the last five minutes of the game, overcame Hanover’s deeper but younger squad to claim a 52-46 victory. Atlee (5-4 Capital, 6-8) began with man-to-man coverage, but as the fouls mounted it was clear something had to give. “I started worrying about foul trouble with six minutes in the second quarter,” said Atlee coach Anna Prillaman. “That’s when I decided to go zone because you’re less likely to pick up fouls than in manto-man. It worked pretty well for us.” Hanover (3-6, 6-10) didn’t benefit from the less in-your-

face Raiders defense. In the final minute of the first half, the Raiders outscored the Hawks 7-5 to take a 27-25 lead into intermission. One of the key factors in the Raiders’ rally was Hall finding the range on offense. After struggling somewhat through the first quarter, she hit a jumper just before the buzzer in the first quarter and stayed hot through the second, scoring 11 of Atlee’s 20 second-quarter points. “I wasn’t hitting my shots very well, but that shot helped me get my confidence up,” Hill

said of the shot at the end of the first quarter. Hanover coach Kevin Brooks was an admirer of Hill’s efforts. “They have a Division I player — Hill’s a very good player,” Brooks said. “She hit a lot of tough shots. She had a lot of open shots that she converted.” Hill wasn’t the only Raider to find her self-confidence in the second-quarter. “Everybody kind of rallied together, hitting their shots,” Hill said. “They started playing better defense and weren’t foul-

ing so much.” The Raiders weren’t quite able to put away the Hawks, and early in the fourth quarter Hanover pulled ahead 4440, with 5:36 left in the game. Atlee’s Karlie Suber, however, hit a 3-pointer that signaled the Raiders weren’t finished. “That was a big 3,” Hill said. “After she hit that shot, everybody calmed down and started playing a better game.” Atlee’s defense also was buoyed by that shot. In the next minute, the Raiders picked off a couple of Hanover balls and converted them into baskets to

locker room. Though trailing, Manns was not concerned with how his Hawks played. “The first half we were just trying to feel them out,” he said. “It’s a game of adjustments and we were looking at a lot of things. We threw a lot of different things at them and in doing so sometimes it confuses your guys, but it’s cool because it gives us an idea of how they respond to different things. Then

we made some adjustments in the second half.” Reiss picked up where he left off in the first half by hitting back to back threes to give Atlee its biggest lead 27-22 a little over a minute into the third. But then Hanover turned up the intensity at both ends, going on a 16-1 run to break the game open. A Rogers jumper put Hanover up 41-30 with 1:49 to go in the period.

The Hawks then held off a late charge from the Raiders to pick up the win. “Our biggest problem has been lack of energy,” Manns said. “Some games we just don’t get up for them for some reason. But these Hanover County games we never have to worry about.” Even though the Hawks lost to Lee-Davis a week earlier, Manns said the way his team played in the second half opened

claim a 48-44 lead with 3:48 left. Atlee led only 50-46 for most of the final two minutes. In desperation, the Hawks resorted to fouling, but it took six fouls in 20 seconds to put a Raider — Hill — on the line for a one-and-one with 21 seconds to go. She sank both shots. “I could breathe a little bit easier,” Hill said. Suber finished with 14 points, followed by Taylor Henderson with 11. Mariah Douglas led Hanover with 12 points, and Taylor Woolard

with 10. Dave Lawrence is a special correspondent for the Richmond Times Dispatch.

their own eyes. “We talked, the Lee-Davis game, the second half, that was probably the hardest we played all year and the guys got a taste of what it’s like to play that hard,” he said. “They got so much positive feedback from their classmates and people in the neighborhood about how hard they competed and they came out this game.”
