Sheriff asks board to unfreeze positions By Melody Kinser mkinser@mechlocal.com When Col. David R. Hines, sheriff, appeared before the Hanover County Board of Supervisors on March 9 to dis-

cuss his office’s budget proposal, the issue of staffing took center stage. In referring to an old fiveyear plan, he asked that the board work with him “to develop a plan to unfreeze the seven

frozen deputy positions within the Sheriff ’s Office and adopt a new five-year staffing plan that is sustainable.” “I would be irresponsible to stand before you today and proclaim that we are 20, 30 or even

40 officers short,” he added. Hines said his office is operating with staffing levels between 2006 and 2007. “Over the last several years, to prevent greater budget cuts and layoffs, we worked closely

with Mr. (County Administrator Cecil R. “Rhu” Jr.) Harris and his staff to freeze positions,” the sheriff continued. “Across the county there are officially 12 frozen positions in Public Safety

departments. Seven or over half (58.3 percent) are deputy sheriff positions – deputy sheriffs, our citizens’ first line of defense against crime!” see SHERIFF, pg. 26 `

Redistricting meetings start Tuesday Hanover County has scheduled three public information sessions to gather input on the 2011 Redistricting. The sessions will be held on: ❍ Tuesday, March 29, at Patrick Henry High School. ❍ Thursday, March 31, at Atlee High

School. ❍ Tuesday, April 5, at Lee-Davis High School. Each session will begin at 7 p.m. and will be held in the commons area of the schools. Displays showing all of Hanover’s cur-

rent voting districts will be set up and the staff will be available to answer questions. The Board of Supervisors and county administration invite all interested citizens to participate in the meetings. The county recently received 2010 see REDISTRICTING, pg. 8 `

will graduate from Hanover High School in June. He loves history, German and politics and loves a good debate. Andrew enjoys graphic arts on his Mac and even has a small online graphic arts business. He is the artist behind the great event t-shirts that are given to all who attend our events. Andrew loves to vacation at Smith Mountain Lake and likes to fish as much as he can while there. He also loves going to Disney World and the parks there. His favorite is Epcot, where he likes to eat his way through the different countries. He has attended Cool Spring Church since the age of 3 and is a leader and active participant in the student ministry there. His faith is the most important thing to him. Andrew has a heart for missions and has had the opportunity to do some great things. He was part of a mission team that hosted a camp for Navajo Indian children in Flagstaff, Ariz.; he participates each spring in a 30-Hour of Famine that raises money for world hunger; he has travelled to Washington, D.C., and downtown Richmond to hand out backpacks to the homeless community, filled with food, clothing and Bibles; he has been a group leader in Vacation Bible School for the last seven years and has designed a number of their VBS t-shirts; he has been a coach for Upward Flag Football and assisted his uncle in coaching his cousins Upward Basketball Team as well. Another of Andrew’s loves is cooking, more specifically, all things “BBQ” and all things cooked on a smoker. He loves to come up with rubs and marinades for meat and is in charge of the preparation of the Thanksgiving turkey each year. Cooking utensils and gadgets are regularly found among his Christmas and birthday presents. His mother, Carice Smith, said “Andrew has a dedicated and great group of friends and family members that support and encourage him (and us) daily … although I think he is the encouragement and inspiration to us.” “He continually has a smile on his face and a cheerful disposition that never falters even when things get rough,” he added. “And they do, a common cold can easily last a month for him, a common cold can be life-threatening and it’s like nothing you

or I experience when sick. A few years ago before facing major surgery, he told his grandmother that if something happened to him he wasn’t worried, ‘I know where I’m going, why would I be scared. Amazing. isn’t he?” His mother also said Andrew “really is a true fighter that never really stops fighting ... and neither will we. It has been amazing the last 13 years to experience the support, awareness and attention that has been brought to SMA, but until a cure is found and no parent has to count their child’s life in months we will fight on!

FightSMA Mechanicsville “Our family wanted to do something more for a disease that had no cure or treatments available,” Carice said. “SMA is a little-known killer that does not get much federal funding or the awareness it needs. The task has been left to the families and friends of these amazing, inspirational fighters to get the awareness and funding so desperately needed.” In 1998, Andrew’s family, along with a team of dedicated volunteers (including family, friends and even some of his teachers), began supporting the organization, FightSMA (www.fightsma.org) and coordinating events for the Mechanicsville chapter, furthering the mission, “To strategically accelerate the search for a treatment and cure for Spinal Muscular Atrophy.” FightSMA was started in 1991 by Joe and Martha Slay, parents of another Andrew fighting SMA. It is headquartered in Richmond. In 20 years, it has increased to 17 chapters across the country and one in Canada. Andrew’s first fundraiser, the “Help Andrew Strike-Out SMA Bowl-A-Thon” was such a huge success that they continued it for eight more years and raised more than $350,000, collectively. Carice said, “It was supported and embraced whole-heartedly by the staff, students and their families at Rural Point Elementary and Oak Knoll Middle and the community at large. It became a highlight of the year for many living in Mechanicsville and embodied the true meaning of ‘school and community spirit’ with many pitching in to make it the huge success that it was.” As part of FightSMA’s efforts at gaining awareness and research dollars for SMA and along with families from all across the country, Andrew and his family travel to Washington, D.C., each spring to lobby for the passing of the first-ever SMA

Treatment Acceleration Act introduced into Congress in 2007 by co-sponsor U.S. Rep. Eric Cantor, R-7. Andrew has met Congressman Cantor, former U.S. Senators George Allen and John Warner, as well as former U.S. Rep. Patrick Kennedy. He also has met with health-care staff members of U.S. Sen. Jim Webb. While the bill has not yet passed, it has dramatically increased awareness of SMA among lawmakers and is directly responsible for the increasing attention SMA is receiving from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). “The bill has had a tremendously positive impact to date,” Carice said. “Our efforts have secured 118 co-sponsors in the House and 21 co-sponsors in the Senate and is responsible for the opportunities that are emerging to engage the NIH even more deeply in the effort to find a treatment for this disease.” Progress as a result of FightSMA’s efforts include: Funding researchers at academic institutions and biotech corporations in the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Italy and Canada. Attention has been brought to the disease through national and local media outlets. SMA research serves as a foundation to help advance research for about 20 other diseases, including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, ALS (Lou Gehrig’s) and Muscular Dystrophy. Significant strides have been made in the care of children living with SMA with the publication of the “Standard of Care for SMA,” enabling all parents the tools and resources they need to properly care for their children. In anticipation of a viable treatment, doctors are pushing for newborn screening for SMA to become routine. FightSMA also supports the “FighterMom” program, which is designed for any parent facing the challenges of raising a child with a chronic or life-threatening illness by equipping them with the tools and resources they need to effectively fundraise, lobby for federal dollars, advertise and a host of other helpful hints and is an invaluable tool and free guide to everyone. “Thanks to the many dedicated and committed friends, family members and the Mechanicsville and surrounding communities, FightSMA Mechanicsville is truly making a difference in the lives of these valiant fighters and will not stop until Spinal Muscular Atrophy is a disease of the past,” Carice said.


Historian to address R-MC graduation Civil War historian Dr. James “Bud” Robertson Jr., Randolph-Macon College Class of 1955, will be the commencement speaker for his alma mater at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 28, in the R-MC Frank E. Brown Fountain Plaza on the campus in Ashland. The announcement of Robertson’s address was made last week by R-MC president Robert R. Lindgren. “We are thrilled that Dr. Robertson will serve as our speaker during this important time in Virginia’s history, the 150th anniversary of the Civil War,” Lindgren said. “He is one of the most distinguished historians of the Civil War, but to R-MC, he is family and we are excited to welcome home this notable alumnus.” Robertson is the recipient of every

major award given in the Civil War field. His biography of Gen. “Stonewall” Jackson, Stonewall Jackson: The Man, The Soldier, The Legend (Macmillan, 1997), won eight national awards and ROBERTSON was used as the basis for the mega-movie “Gods and Generals.” Robertson served as the chief historical consultant for the film. He has authored or edited more than 20 books, including Civil War! America Becomes One Nation, General A.P. Hill, and Soldiers Blue and Gray. Robertson is the executive director of

the Virginia Center for Civil War Studies at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg. According to Tech, Robertson’s Civil War Era course attracts 300 students per semester and is the largest of its kind in the nation. He is a charter member of Virginia’s Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission, which was created by the General Assembly of Virginia. Born in Danville, Robertson earned a bachelor’s degree in history from Randolph-Macon College in 1955 and master’s and doctoral degrees from Emory University. In 1980, he was awarded the Honorary Degree Doctor of Letters from R-MC. He also has received an honorary degree from Shenandoah University.

Fighting childhood obesity

Photos submitted by Jenny Morgan

Primrose School of Atlee Commons student Abby, photo at left above, dances for “happy, healthy hearts” with her father at the Kings & Queens of Hearts Dance on Feb. 18. The dance raised money for the Children’s Hospital of Richmond and kicked off Primrose Schools’ nationwide Family Dance-off to fight childhood obesity. “The children’s hospital saved my child’s life. I have him here today because of what they did, and being able to give back through the Dance-off and promote health and wellness in other children – it’s a gift,” Ann Andrade, franchise owner of Primrose School of Atlee Commons, said.

He will be running as an Independent in the fall election. “I am proud of the support my friends in the Republican Party have given me over the years,” Gordon said. “I am also proud of the many Democrats and Independents who have also supported me.” “The decision to run as an Independent was not an easy one. But the cost of running a campaign in the primary immediately followed by a campaign in the general election is more than I am willing to ask my supporters to fund in these

economic times,” he added. “Therefore, I decided to join the vast majority of candidates for local election across the state and run as an Independent.” “I am committed to continuous improvement. Hanover has much to be proud of. But we cannot rest on our laurels,” Gordon said. “We must work harder, smarter and more cost efficiently if we are to remain the great family of communities we have become.” Gordon is the owner of Pristine Services Inc., a commercial janitorial company. He and his wife Vivian have three adult children and two grandchildren. They make their home in the Farrington area.

South Anna GOP committee chairman for the past year. He said he believes that “county government should be run more like a business. The 2010 Census concluded Hanover’s population grew 15.7 percent in the last 10 years, or 1.5 percent per year. Yet, from 1999-2010, the county budget increased 107 percent. There needs to be a greater scrutiny in the growth of our government.” “We need to refocus our efforts to stimulate job creation and economic development in the private sector, not the government sector,” Hazzard said. “As a businessman, I feel strongly we can remove some of the barriers currently impeding business development in Hanover County. A balanced approach to growth and development with increases in the tax base will translate into tax relief for homeowners.” “The county recently reported a $1,100,000 surplus, yet didn’t reverse recent budget cuts such as closing the county transfer stations on Wednesdays and cutting back the library hours,” he added. “In a county with a proposed $390.7 million budget for Fiscal Year 2012, we can make budget cuts without reducing further services to our citizens.” “I seek the opportunity to serve the South Anna District and all of Hanover County by bringing greater fiscal responsibility and accountability to its citizens,” Hazzard said.

Page Wilson, radio host, passes away at age 56 By Randy Hallman Media General News Service Talk to those who knew Page Wilson, and the theme emerges. He loved his music, but he loved people even more. He spent his life helping other musicians and anybody else who needed a hand. Miah Page Wilson was found dead at his Hanover County home Tuesday. Police said Mr. Wilson died of natural causes. He was 56. Mr. Wilson had been the host for his “Out of the Blue Radio Revue” for decades, most recently at central Virginia’s public radio station, WCVE. In addition to providing exposure and support for musicians, he was a master of ceremonies and organizer for festivals and benefits. A singer-songwriter, Mr. Wilson was a masterful guitarist and had a powerful bass voice. He had toured with his own band, Reckless Abandon, and played and sang with others. His brother, Paul D. Wilson of Hanover County, said Mr. Wilson was always a friend to struggling musicians. “He would try to bring them to the public and let them hear their music. He was looking for the up-and-coming musi-

cian, trying to be a star — or the dropped-out musician on the way down.” Musician Janet Martin of Richmond said Mr. Wilson supported her music from the beginning of her career 16 years ago. “He reached out to me and invited me to come on his program,” Martin said. “He always supported me 1,000 percent.” He called Mr. Wilson’s death is “a tragic loss for the Richmond music community, for the radio community and for myself personally.” Mr. Wilson attended the University of Richmond but left in the 1970s. He spent time in Nashville, Tenn., his brother said, but found the music scene there too commercial. Eventually, he came back to Virginia. “I used to tell him that’s how you paid the bills — commercialism,” said Paul Wilson. “But that just wasn’t his approach.” Tim Timberlake, a former radio host for a popular morning show in Richmond, was a longtime friend of Mr. Wilson’s. He said Mr. Wilson’s radio show was “theater of the mind” that created the illusion of an at-home gathering of musicians. “It was like people sitting around the kitchen table at his Chickahominy Swamp house, eat-

ing, drinking, talking and playing music.” Kevin McGranahan worked alongside Mr. Wilson on the radio show and at venues such as Richmond’s Irish Festival and the St. Baldrick’s benefit at which Mr. Wilson annually shaved his long hair to support cancer patients. On his radio show, Mr. Wilson said he promoted “purebred American mongrel music.” McGranahan said that term took in a wide swath — country, bluegrass, zydeco, rock’n’roll, folk. Mr. Wilson struggled financially and physically himself in the past few years. Martin and many other musicians and friends held a 2008 benefit concert called “Party for Page” to assist their longtime patron. Even then, when his fortunes had turned for the worse, he was thinking of ways to help others. At his insistence, 10 percent of the event’s proceeds went to Positive Vibe Café, which provides employment for the disabled. In addition to his brother, survivors include a daughter, Virginia Blue Wilson of Hanover; another brother, Stephen L. Wilson of Richmond; and a sister, Laurann Whetham of Luttrell, Tenn. Plans for a memorial service have not yet been made, Paul Wilson said.

Parent creates school danger There ought to be a law against stupid, especially after what I saw this morning (March 11) in front of Stonewall Jackson Middle School. As I was in the turn late waiting to enter Stonewall from Lee Davis Road, I witnessed a parent, in the same turning lane, let their student get out of the car. The student exited the car on the driver’s right side directly into the traffic lane with cars coming from the direction of Lee Davis, and then the student walked between the cars in the turning lane into the traffic lane for cars coming from the direction of Pole Green Road. Thank goodness Mr. (Elton) Wade was holding that traffic so the turning lane could enter the Stonewall driveway; however, this driver was holding up everyone in the turning lane to pull off this stupid move. How inconsiderate this driver was of everyone else. I think Mr. Wade was just as dumbfounded as I was to witness this. What an example of just what you shouldn’t do to set for your child. How do you expect your child to do the right things when you don’t? I hope in the future you come to your senses and pull into Stonewall to release your student. Janice Clark Mechanicsville

People will stand and fight The argument of not wanting a shutdown of the government is so weak. If we are concerned about Social Security and Medicare, if we are concerned about interest checks to China, if we are possibly concerned about

the arts and national parks staying open, if we are concerned about our VA (Veterans Administration) benefits not being paid ultimately, if we are truly concerned about all of those things, then the Republicans should right now be drafting a separate bill to continue all of those things. These are items that are not only popular, but most of which might be necessary for the federal government to function. We should have that bill passed now, so that those monies can continue to flow. The rest of the garbage needs to be out and it needs to be stopped. If this means shutting down 50 percent or 75 percent of the government, then so be it. I am sick and tired of all the “dog and pony shows” that I have been watching from the GOP and others, talking about the fear which they all have of an Obama veto. I would submit to the GOP that the American people will stand and fight for those willing to stand and fight. And the American people will quickly fire any cowards for whom they originally voted.

Virginia is sponsored by Carol Negus, president of Boundaries International. She sponsored former Ambassador Jacques Klein’s lecture at Lee-Davis High School last year.

Hanover High School and Patrick Henry High School students have been invited to attend the lectures, which also are open to parents. Osmanagich has authored 10 books about ancient civilizations and narrated a 12-epizode documentary “Search for Lost Civilization” for the state Bosnian television FTVBiH (2007). The documentary was based on his book, Civilizations Before the Official History (2005), and filmed in Peru, Bolivia, Easter Island, Costa Rica, Mexico, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Malta, Egypt, Jordan and Lebanon. In 2005, Osmanagich discovered the first pyramids in Europe near the town of Visoko, near Sarajevo, BosniaHerzegovina.

In 2008 in Sarajevo, he hosted an archaeological conference, which fueled controversy about his discovery dividing the archaeological community. Excavation on the vast complex has been ongoing and run by his nonprofit “Archaeological Park: Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun” Foundation since 2006, compiling more and more evidence to validate his claims. To date, the excavation has yielded five pyramids of various sizes, as well as a vast labyrinth of underground tunnels and a pyramid that is 30 percent larger than the largest structure on the Giza Plateau. Osmanagich is a principal investigator in the project, which yielded some of the piosee PYRAMIDS, pg. 17 `

Lift oil moratorium

on the U.S. debt, which is now over $14.3 trillion: From George Washington until George W. Bush, the U.S. debt grew to approximately $8.7 trillion, which means that in the two years Obama has been president, he alone has accumulated approximately $5.6 trillion in debt with no end in sight. God help us! Ashley Kruger King William

Some may remember back in 2007-2008 when we had a similar spike in oil prices. Then-President Bush lifted the oil moratorium and told the oil companies to start drilling. This resulted in the price of oil dropping like a rock from $140 a barrel to $40 a barrel! Here’s a clue for Obama: It worked once, shouldn’t it work again?

kids what the rules of the house are and then not paying any attention to them for the next two years, expecting them to follow those rules without your guidance. We have to understand this about government: There is no natural check on government power. There is nothing in human nature that internally reins in an ambitious drive for power. As long as a person who desires power is allowed to use that power without consequence, he or she will become habituated to it and continue to grow more self-righteous and heedless of restraints. People who are comfortable in their positions of power tend to behave as hypocrites. The antidote to this is to make their power tentative, so that they continually have to look for feedback that they are behaving appropriately. This is our job and it is not a one shot deal every two years. John Louis Mechanicsville

Hickory Hill K-9 Rescue in Ashland now has help in protecting dogs against canine influenza virus (CIV), a highly contagious disease that spreads easily from dog to dog, especially those in close proximity. The shelter received a grant for the vaccines as part of a Petfinder.com Foundation program to build community immunity against this respiratory infection. The foundation partnered with Intervet/Schering-Plough Animal Health, a global animal health company and makers of the NOBIVAC(r) Canine Flu H3N8 vaccine, to fund the grant. Because CIV is relatively new, most dogs have not built up immunity to the disease. Dogs can get the disease by being exposed to those that have it, as well as playing with toys or drinking from bowls used by other dogs. People can also unwittingly spread the germ if they come in contact with infected dogs. “Shelters and rescue organizations are often the first places that new diseases already in the community become evident. Dogs come in from the community and are released back into it, and often move to and from states with confirmed cases,” Liz Neuschatz, director of the Petfinder.com Foundationm said. “Canine flu can be a real problem for shelters, where one sick dog can cause an outbreak through an entire facility. We are pleased to be part of this effort to help protect the community by providing canine flu vaccine to Hickory Hill K-9 Rescue.” Dog flu is a growing problem throughout the U.S. It has been confirmed in 35 states so far, but tracking the disease is hard because it is so difficult to

diagnose. Dogs are contagious before they show any symptoms. By the time the dog starts coughing, it’s too late. Virtually all dogs exposed to the virus will become infected, and some will get more serious infections, such as pneumonia, which can be fatal. Dogs that go to doggie daycare, boarding facilities, groomers and shows and are vaccinated for canine cough (Bordetella) also are at risk for canine flu. Information about canine flu is available at www.doginfluenza.com. The grant for Building Community Immunity seeks to protect all at-risk dogs in the community, including those in close proximity with other dogs, as is the case with shelters and rescue facilities. It also provides greater assurance to adopting families that their new pets will be healthier and much less likely to be sick or get more serious, and sometimes fatal, see K-9, pg. 19 `

A week of activities and lesson plans started Tuesday, March 22, leading up to a big celebration for the Stepping Up for the Environment event at 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 26, when all schools will turn off any non-essential lighting for one hour. “We want children to think about how we all impact the environment in our daily lives and how each one of us can make a difference. Earth Hour provides a great opportunity to accomplish that,” Joseph Schumacher, CEO of Goddard Systems Inc., said. “As educators and as parents, we want to help children understand that how they care for and protect the earth will affect future generations.” In preparation for Earth Hour, Goddard Schools will

Ashland photographer receives state honors Ashland photographer Jessica Robertson recently received the award “Best Portrait of a Woman” for an image entitled “Hallelujah!” of Virginia Shelton. Robertson, of Jessica Robertson Photographic Artistry, participated in the Virginia Professional Photographers’ Association’s annual convention and print competition, which was held Feb. 26 through March 1. As part of her professional development, Robertson submits prints for judging. In addition to the Shelton image, Robertson’s Portrait of a Pet captured second place and was selected for a “Judges Choice” award. That image fea-

tured 11 of Hanover resident Katie Spiegler’s golden retriever puppies. Robertson’s case, comprised of six prints, received five blue ribbons. Her blue ribbon winners — in the categories of Portrait of a Child, Portrait of a Woman, Portrait of a Pet, Portrait of a Bride and Illustrative — all feature her clients. According to Robertson, judging was strict this year, with only 17 percent of all prints submitted earning blue ribbons. There are 15 different categories in which works are submitted and each work is judged on 12 criteria: impact, creativity, style, composition, print presentation, center of interest,

SHERIFF Continued from pg. 1 b

He then asked the supervisors for their help “in unfreezing the currently frozen positions within the Sheriff ’s Office.” The sheriff also offered a new five-year plan that he called “fiscally responsible as well as responsive to our citizens’ needs. This plan represents no new positions for the Sheriff ’s Office from 2008 through 2013 but simply the unfreezing of positions.” Hines also submitted to the board the results of a recent citizen survey. More than 98 percent of respondents “described Hanover County as a safe or very safe place to live. More than 97 percent indicated they felt safe or very safe within their immediate neighborhoods.” More than 97 percent rated “both the overall competence of the Sheriff ’s Office employees and the overall performance of the Sheriff ’s Office as excellent or good. Nearly 99 percent of the respondents indicated that their opinions were based on personal experience, observation or a combination of the two.” The county’s crime rate for 2010 was 964. Hines said the crime rate “is defined as representing the number of citizens victimized by an index crime per every 100,000 citizens. Our 2010 rate is a decrease of 9.1 percent from the 2009 rate.” He said that was the lowest since 1975. The clearance rate is 68.3 percent, Hines said, an increase of 2.2 percent from 2009.” Seventy-one percent of his office’s sworn officers are assigned to the Patrol Division “in some type of uniform position.” “It is not by accident or

by the lack of planning that our residents do see our officers as they travel through the county.” “While this deployment can be seen as intense from the perspective of a few,” Hines said, “we remind you our purpose is to deter criminal activity whenever possible and not allow crime to flourish.” Director of Finance Kathleen Seay said consumer confidence has started to move upward. General Fund revenues for FY12 are up 2.2 percent of $4.4 million. As for the sales tax revenue, Seay said, it was “one of the most significant early indicators of the recession, when we saw the decline at the beginning of FY09.” She said that FY11 “has been a welcome turnaround in that trend.” She said the county is “estimated to come in 6.5 percent higher than FY11 budget and 5.9 percent in FY12 budget. We’ve seen six months of increases consecutively this year.” Seay also said that federal and state revenues are well below 2009 and 2010 levels. The county does have $1.5 million in what she called an “economic downturn reserve” that was “generated by vacancies or operating savings.” Deputy County Administrator Frank Harksen, the former director of Public Utilities, said the department’s successes include e-reports for after-hours calls, the “Buy Local” promotion, enhanced customer feedback, e-notification for bills, fire meter usage analysis and large meter replacement. Challenges include new and more stringent regulations. In good news, Harksen said that all plants continue to perform at very a high level. For the second year, he said no increase in capacity fees is being proposed. With

era Hanover Tavern. First, second and third place awards will be presented to both middle school and high school winners on June 1.

RESIDENT Continued from pg. 1 b

he is blogging and posting on Facebook and Twitter about his pursuit of being victorious. Trevor is one of only two contestants vying for Expedition Granted. On the website, it said his objective is to “protect the national parks in Indonesia from poachers.” The winner will receive $10,000 toward his/her expedition of choice. Trevor, 25, will be making on-air appeals to solicit votes. Another site involved in the project is natgeotv.com/ expedition. Those who vote are automatically registered for a fourperson, 10-day adventure to the Galapagos Islands, courtesy of National Geographic Expeditions. The announcement of the winner is scheduled for Thursday, April 7, during Expedition Week. The runnerup will receive $2,500. If he is successful in the voting, Trevor said he will “embark

on an expedition to the island of Sumatra in Indonesia to investigate three parks – all UNESCO World Heritage Sites – to find ways to help them protect the environment and wildlife.” He said he will work with scientists to pinpoint conservation strategies that help save critically endangered animals like the orangutan and sun bear. He said he also will document the work of the park rangers who dedicate their lives to protecting the parks. As a boy, Trevor said he “spent my days exploring the wetlands and hanging out at Poor Farm Park and other wooded areas in [the] Mechanicsville/Hanover area.” He is the son of Ian and Mindy Frost. His father owns EEE Consulting, an environmental consulting firm in Mechanicsville. Trevor said he is an explorer, field biologist, photographer and conservationist. He has spent the last five years working with scientists

and conservation groups to save endangered wildlife and wild places. He said he has led eight international expeditions to four continents, in places like Congo, Patagonia and the Canadian wild. In that time, he also has helped produce two films and launch several photo exhibits that have toured around the world. Trevor said he is most proud of his work with the International League of Conservation Photographers and a number of Canadian conservation organizations that together helped secure a permanent ban on mining in the Flathead River Valley of British Columbia. He lives on the James River in Richmond, where he grew up exploring the rapids and islands of the James River Park System the very place that he said inspired him to want to help better protect other parks around the world. He said one of his heroes is Ralph White, a park ranger,

park manager, naturalist and educator who is largely responsible for the health and success of the James River Park System. Trevor’s educational background includes attending Pearson’s Corner Elementary School and Chickahominy Middle School. When he was in the eighth grade, he left CMS at the age of 14 to take classes at J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College for two semesters. In 2002, at the age of 16, he became an Environmental Sciences major at VCU. While there, he traveled to Guatemala, Peru and Ecuador. He graduated with honors from VCU at age 20 in 2006 with a major in Environmental Sciences. During the summer of 2006, Trevor worked with Professor Don Young as a research assistant, studying invasive species on Virginia’s Eastern Shore and Barrier Islands. The fall of 2006 found him traveling across Africa South Africa to Ethiopia.

The following spring, he went on a mountaineering expedition with his father to the tallest mountain in the Americas. That was followed by six months of travel in South America. Trevor worked with the Wildlife Conservation Society on research study of jaguars and reptiles/amphibians. He travelled throughout the Middle East Syria, Jordan and Lebanon – in the winter of 2008. In March 2008, he was awarded a National Geographic Young Explorers Grant to explore caves in the Congo Basin of Africa. During the summer of 2008, he launched and completed a two-month exploratory expedition to find, explore, map, study and photograph caves in the Gabon part of the Congo Basin. He said he discovered the longest cave in Gabon. VCU was a sponsor for that trip. Trevor became employed in January 2009 with the International League of Conservation Photographers, a

nonprofit in Washington, D.C. He served as director of Rapid Assessment Visual Expeditions at 23 years of age. He said the mandate of his position was to launch expeditions with world-renowned photographers to document critical conservation stories. He helped conceive, plan and fund expeditions, and oversaw six expeditions. “One, so far, we’ve had a terrific success,” Trevor said. “The expedition helped partners secure a legislated and permanent ban on mining in the Flathead River Valley of British Columbia.” Last October, he resigned from iLCP to pursue his own projects. Since then, he said, he has “been working side-by-side with author and National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Wade Davis to produce a photo book with Bobby Kennedy Jr. and David Suzuki to brand the Sacred Headwaters, an extraordinary wilderness in Canada that is threatened by mining.”

Heinz sharp as C-feds roll past Royals By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Last season, Lee-Davis softball coach Jackie Davis felt junior pitcher Kelly Heinz struggled early as she made the adjustment from travel ball back to high school. The summer league teams on which Heinz played threw at a distance of 43 feet but the high school rubber sat at 40. This year with both throwing from the same distance, Heinz stepped into the circle with no fall off, which was clearly evident. In her first two appearances of the season, Heinz threw a five inning perfect game 17-0 blowout of Hermitage 17-0 on Wednesday and a 17-strikeout, one-hitter in a 6-1 victory over Central Region defending champion Prince George the following day. “I feel like a lot of people don’t like it at 43 feet, but me personally I really do,” Heinz said. “It’s a lot easier to come right into high school and not have to worry about moving up three feet closer and making the ball move sooner and a lot like that. It’s a lot less adjustment.” Against Prince George, Heinz struck out at least two Royal batters in all but one inning and had trio of three-K innings. “She threw hard tonight,” Davis said of Heinz. “She had a good night on the mound I thought she looked real good.” Overall, Davis was pleased

36

with the performance of her team but upset at small, yet easily correctable miscues. “I was not happy defensively tonight,” she said. “We made some mistakes defensively which is out of character for this team to make. I definitely feel that we’re a better defensive team than we showed tonight. It was stupid little mistakes.” Though most teams would simply credit the miscues to the first week of the season, Davis holds higher expectations for her experienced squad. In the top of the fourth, Prince George’s Ginny Miller drilled a shot deep toward the right line and C-fed Rachel Houff came just short of making a running catch. “I counted Rachel’s ball as an error because it hit her glove,” Davis said. “It’s a catch that typically she’s going to make.” Miller went on to score the Royals’ only run of the game. In the top of the sixth, Miller reached again when defensive confusion allowed an infield pop-up to drop to the dirt. Later in the inning a throw to first glanced off Meredith Holmes glove allowing the runners to advance. “The little pop fly there, we had a little confusion and then Meredith’s one, she just tried to turn and tag before she caught the ball,” Davis said. “But those are errors that we can take care of. “Anytime I would not expect

Lee-Davis junior pitcher Kelly Heinz came out sharp in her first two contests of the season throwing a five inning perfect game against Hermitage and a 17-strikeout effort against defending Central Region champions Prince George.

them to make mistakes like that,” Davis said. But there were fewer problems for the Confederates on offense facing first year Royal pitchers Miller and Jennifer Woodlief. “Offensively, we left some runners on base that I would have liked to see us get in but overall I thought we did a real nice job,” Davis said. “(We) were able to scratch some runs across,

especially with their pitchers being not so predictable.” Haleigh Cottrell led things off in the bottom of the first by drilling a double to right, then came home following a bunt from Lacie Madison that drew a wild throw to first. In the bottom of the second it was Madison who added to the lead. Junior Taylor Deemer led off with a single between third

and short and Katie Bowling’s sacrifice bunt put Deemer in scoring position. With two outs, Cottrell was walked when Madison returned to the plate and noticed Royal centerfielder Mandy Almarode was playing in a little too close. Madison then waited for the ball to come across where she wanted it. “She had thrown a lot of balls before that I was just wait-

ing for the perfect strike down the middle,” Madison said. When that perfect pitch came, Madison blasted a shot over the head of Almarode in center for a triple that drove in Deemer and Cottrell for a 3-0 Lee-Davis lead. The Confederates answered the Royals’ run in the bottom of the fifth when Casey Price see SOFTBALL, pg. 39 `


Yellow Jackets drop two in battle for first Miscue double-dose brings frustrating setback for R-MC By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com The Randolph-Macon baseball team faced a big mid-season test this past week only to come away with failing grades. It was not any easy stretch by any means as R-MC took on the three top ODAC teams, Lynchburg, Va. Wesleyan and Bridgewater, in consecutive matchups. But the Yellow Jackets were hoping to come away with more than a 2-3 mark in the end. Coming into the stretch with a 6-0 ODAC record, RMC Coach Ray Hedrick took an optimistic approach to the schedule. “A week ago I’d have told you that I would have taken three out of five between Bridgewater, Virginia Wesleyan and Lynchburg,” he said. But that cautious approach changed after an early R-MC sweep. “We sweep Lynchburg on the road and now you get greedy, you’d like to take four out of five,” he said. Instead the Jackets lost their next three games. However, it does not take an in depth investigation as to why R-MC lost. “We made 11 errors in five games this week,” Hedrick said. “We won 14-3 in a game where we didn’t make any errors. The point is, we’re beating ourselves and that’s easy. If we can fix that we’re going to be fine.” In 19 games this season, RMC is averaging 4.42 errors per game and those miscues were most costly on Saturday against defending ODAC champion Bridgewater. There’s no question that the near capacity crowd got their fill of excitement even though half of those baseball fans walked

away disappointed. Each game came down to the final play in the final inning to determine the winner. In the opener, R-MC trailed the Eagles 4-2 heading into the bottom of the ninth but Peter Culver’s lead-off single up the middle gave the Jackets hope. Culver advanced on a wild pitch and Brian Jordan’s (Goochland) single to right put runners on the corners with no outs. A sacrifice bunt by Greg Mitro allowed Culver to take home then Jordan sent the game into an extra inning on Jordan Walton (Lee-Davis) single to right. With one out in the top of the 10th, Bridgewater first baseman Andrew Hacker (LeeDavis) singled to left, and that should have been the extent of the Eagle offense. Bridgewater’s Alex Nuttycombe hit what appeared to be a textbook double-play ball back to pitcher James Bierlein that would have closed out the side. But Bierlein’s throw to second was wide putting a pair of runners on. “Game one we have a routine double-play ball and we turn that it’s a different game,”

Hedrick said. “We might win both.” Bierlein then compounded matters by hitting Bryan Sanderson to load the bags. A walk of Kevin Kirk scored a run then a double to left by Jonathan Mason drove in three more to give Bridgewater a 8-4 lead. R-MC’s Cory Jackson (Patrick Henry) singled then later reached home in the bottom of the 10th but it was too little, too late. With the Jackets’ Michael Helbig on the mound for the second game, neither team managed much offense until the third inning when each scored. With the game tied 1-1, RMC took the lead in the bottom of the fifth when Jeb Weymouth (Hanover) blistered a shot down the left field line to drive in Bierlein. The score remained the same until the top of the seventh when the error bug bit the Jackets again. Dustin Arrowood led off with a double to center for the Eagles then reached home when Nuttycombe’s grounder caromed off the foot of Culver at short. Nuttycombe later

scored on a wild pitch and Snow added one more for a 4-2 Eagle lead. R-MC cut the margin in half in the bottom of the eighth when Weymouth drilled a homer over the right field fence to pull the Jackets within one, 3-4. It appeared the Jackets were in good shape to take the win in the bottom of the ninth when Culver singled to short and advanced on a sacrifice bunt from Digby. Beirlein sent a shot under the glove of third baseman Jay Thompson which put Jacket runners on second and third. With two out, Mitro stepped to the plate and nailed, what appeared to be, the game winning shot to the right field line, but Kirk made an amazing diving catch to snatch away victory for his Eagles. Bridgewater Coach Curt Kendall was pleased with the way his team stepped up in a big-game atmosphere. “This is tournament level games,” he said. “We knew they’d be two hard fought games just like you were playing in the tournament and it could go either way. That’s pretty much

how they were.” Picking up the pair of ODAC wins over R-MC puts Bridgewater firmly in first place, a game and half up on Lynchburg and W & L and two games up on the Jackets. “To go away with two is a

plus because you kind of help yourself conference-wise,” Kendall said. “You’ve got room for making some mistakes. Hopefully we don’t make too many of them the rest of the way but you put yourself in see JACKETS, pg. 38 `

Patrick Henry lacrosse downs Hanover 15-12 Hawks hopes of history making win pinched by Patriots By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com In a historic year for lacrosse in Hanover County, the Hanover Hawks were looking to make a little history for themselves when they visited Patrick Henry of Friday afternoon. In their first official year of existence, the Hanover High School boys lacrosse team made the trip to Liberty Middle School football field hoping to pick up the school’s first ever win in the sport. It was a nipand-tuck battle but in the end the Patriots pulled out a 15-12 victory. “We talked today about making history,” said Hanover assistant coach Deane Cheatham Sr. “We were looking to get our first win for Hanover High School lacrosse and we didn’t do it today.” What the two teams did do

was provide ample evidence as to the growing popularity of the sport. Both sets of bleachers were filled with a large contingent of supporters as well as the sidelines. “It’s a great sport,” Cheatham said. “You go out to the Atlee Little League and you don’t see as many kids as you used to. I feel sorry for baseball but you know what, a lot of kids want this sport, it’s exciting, there’s

action. It’s coming whether they want it or not, it’s coming and so it’s going to be a great thing. In 10 years when these teams play it’s going to be a big deal. You’re going to see some stadiums with people in them and they’re going to be excited to see them play.” This year marks the first season when all four county schools field lacrosse teams.

level, it is a marked step in the right direction to build the sport locally. Until recently Patrick Henry has been the standard bearer for lacrosse in the county. Three years ago Atlee added lacrosse as a club

sport and this season both Hanover and Lee-Davis High Schools joined the ranks as well. For Patrick Henry head coach Bob Charles, it is a bonus for his team having local

schools to play against, which he feels will only make the sport bigger in the county. “I think it builds interest,” he said. “If you look we had a pretty good interest here today for the

chance to win each game in the final at-bat. “I tell the guys all the time, 98 percent of the time we’re going to have chances to win games late,” he said. “I just tell our guys, good teams are in it, great teams make their own breaks... When you’re not playing well, when you’re not doing the little things well, breaks generally don’t go your way.” Likewise the path back to success is clear for the Jackets. “It’s not like we’re pulling our hair out,” Hedrick said. “We’re hitting so well. We’re playing mistake free baseball. We’re pitching it. We’re keeping teams under five runs. Why aren’t we winning. It’s obvious why we’re not winning. We’re making too many mistakes whether it be base running mistakes, not

executing on offense, defensive mistakes, which were the big ones today.”

good position sweeping these guys.” The game also marked another enjoyable return to Hanover County by Hacker, a Lee-Davis alum. “It feels great I know pretty much everybody on the Randolph-Macon team,” he said. “They’ve got a really nice team so we just came out here and tried to get two and it felt great to actually get it.” For Hedrick it was no surprise that the Jackets had a Charlie Leffler/The Local

varsity game and I think part of that’s because we’re playing local teams. When you play Hanover, Atlee or Lee-Davis, it’s close by so somebody can come from the other side of the county and everybody wants to beat each other.” The first meeting between the Patriots and Hawks started as if it would become a Patrick Henry rout when Ian Branch and Will Rose scored quickly off the first two face-offs leaving Hanover head coach Don Kalinowski frustrated on the sidelines. But the Hawks regrouped and battled back. Though Hanover does not have experience in lacrosse success, their roster is dotted with football players who know how to win. Athletes such as Deane Cheatham, Shreve Rohle, David Cryster, Patrick Sorey and Henry Reeves, bring a never-give-up attitude to the team. But there are also young athletes on the squad, such as Alex Fisher and Casey Cook, who though inexperienced, know how to play the game. At the 9:27 mark of the first period Cook got the Hawks on the board then two minutes later it was Fisher who knotted the contest at 2-2. Then it was the Patriots’ turn to answer as junior midfielder Evan Charles spun off his defender for a score and sophomore mid Jim Huber found the net to reopen a 4-2 PH lead. Once again Hanover found an answer. With 23 seconds left in the first Rohle took control, driving in from the right side for a score. He then took the faceoff, dashed down field and fed to Cheatham who tied the game with :06 on the clock. “You’ve seen (Rohle) play in football, he’s going to give you everything he’s got,” Coach Cheatham said.

“Without Shreve, we never would have cleared the ball. He was our only midfielder to clear the ball.” The second period seesawed until the final four minutes of play when Patrick Henry widened the margin to 8-5 on a score from Logan Taylor and two from Charles. Hanover came out of halftime motivated and went on a 3-1 run to open the third, picking two scores from Cheatham followed by Nic White’s feed to Jacob Forkey in front of the net to pull the Hawks within one, 9-8. Patrick Henry looked to break the game open in the beginning of the fourth. Rose rifled a shot between the ankles of the Hawks’ keeper then quickly tacked on two more from Wong and Charles to open a 14-9 lead with 8:47 to play. Rohle stopped the bleeding with a bullet into the corner of the net with 4:17 to play but Rose answered for the Patriots. Rohle then took the ensuing faceoff, raced down the field and scored 24 seconds later but it was too little too late. Forkey picked up the Hawks final score off an assist from Fisher. Charles was pleased with the team effort as his Patriots picked up their first win of the season. “There’s room for improvement but overall pretty good,” he said pointing out that defense is an area of concern. “That’s where we’ve got to work on in practice the next couple of days is on defense because the offense is doing pretty well. (The) defense is making some mistakes. We played a couple of good quarters and we played a couple of bad quarters so if we can put four together I think we’ll be in good shape.” For Coach Cheatham, it was a matter of mental breakdowns and unchanneled aggression which brought the most setbacks for the inexpe-

rienced Hawks. Hanover often found themselves a man down in key moments due to infractions. “It’s not about how hard you can hit somebody,” he said. “There’s times when you take a good hit but it’s not all about that. You get the ball in and you’ve got to do something with it. It’s an aggressive game and it’s very similar to football in many ways.” And while Cheatham praised Rohle for his outstanding play, he also pointed out that the player needs more focus. “Occasionally he might need to switch his brain on and not get a cheap foul,” Cheatham said. “He’s not a dirty player he’s an aggressive guy and the game now is such that they’re not letting you take those shots.” Still, there were moments of exceptional play for the Hawks. “You can see during times we look like we know what we’re doing and we do,” he added. “But if you take one step forward then you do something stupid and go a man down, you

may as well not done the good thing to begin with.” But overall, it is just a matter of inexperience and adjustment for the Hawks. “We have, I think seven kids on this team that contribute that they played their first lacrosse game in our first lacrosse game,” Cheatham said. “You can’t expect them to play mistake free but we’ve got to make fewer mistakes than

Code Section 24.2-304.1. This process is also referred to as redistricting. In April 2010, the U.S. Census Bureau conducted the decennial census, which documented that Hanover County has a population of 99,863. Based on this population count, the County must apportion its Board of Supervisors election districts so that each district contains an approximately equal portion of the County’s population. This is accomplished through redistricting, which is the process of changing electoral district boundaries.

THE REAPPORTIONMENT OF ELECTION DISTRICT BOUNDARIES HAS ABSOLUTELY NO EFFECT ON SCHOOL DISTRICT BOUNDARIES. Public information sessions, which are intended to educate the public and solicit input on redistricting, will be held from 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm at the following locations on the dates noted. No formal presentation will be given. Stations will be set up with pertinent maps and other materials for review. Staff will be available to answer any questions and to receive comments. Forms for submission of written comments will be available at the meetings. Tuesday
