STOPS AT EVERY HOME IN TOWN

To decal or not to decal?! By Melody Kinser mkinser@mechlocal.com How to proceed with Hanover County’s vehicle decal license and solid waste decal will be addressed in a public

hearing scheduled for April 13 by the Board of Supervisors. Last Wednesday, the issue dominated the board’s regular, with deputy county administrator Joe Casey reviewing alternatives.

The first alternative, he said, would eliminate the $10 permanent vehicle decal fee. This move would impact the county budget by about $120,000 in less revenue. Those funds, he added, would see a $60,000

16 NEIGHBORS Ashland Musical Variety Show continues tradition of great entertainment.

Railroad Run registration under way Have you dusted off your running shoes and hit the pavement? If so, it’s time to register to “Race the Rail” in Ashland’s 33rd Railroad Run. This year’s Run will take place on Saturday, April 30. The 10K component of the race is a U.S. Track and Field Certified 10K Course. New to the 10K Race is the use of Chronotrack Bib Tag Timing presented by KaleRunning.com. According to race chair Dave Klisz, “We’re very excited to be utilizing KaleRunning’s chip timing this year because of the large amount of

runners the race attracts. We think it will take the 10K race to a higher level. In the past, it took runners a minute or so to clear the starting line. Now, it doesn’t matter because the chip will provide people who are going for a personal record (PR) a real finishing time tailored to them.” Richmond Road Runners call this race “one of Central Virginia’s longest running road races. This certified 10K race is a perennial favorite among runners from around the state. The course is flat and fast through the picturesque railroad town of Ashland.” Last year’s race included nearly 800 runners, with close to 500 running in the 10K. The race also includes a 5K Fun Run/Walk and a Kids 1 Mile Fun Run for ages 3 through 12. In addition, this eco-friendly race includes a Green Fair, featuring environmental vendors, as see RUN, pg. 4 `

Hanover Green Veterinary Clinic, having a special interest in oncology, now offers chemotherapy for patients with cancer. Pet owners have an alternative to the stress, inconvenience, and expense of going to veterinary schools or referral facilities when seeking information about treatment options, expected costs, and prognoses. The most up to date information regarding treatment doses and intervals, as well as careful patient monitoring, have markedly reduced the complications that once made chemotherapy unsafe. Nonetheless, a decision to treat a pet with cancer should also be based on compassion and each individualĘźs circumstances. We will work closely with owners and their family veterinarians in making the most thoughtful and caring decisions for each patient. With early detection and treatment, many patients can expect a greatly improved quality and quantity of life.

In addition, Harris said he continues to pursue and encourage internet access by providing online services to facilitate easier taxpayer access to information, due dates and filing forms. “I have a dedicated staff that is committed to excellence,” he said. “They are better trained, more knowledgeable and more committed than ever.” “Our assessment workload has increased by more than 25 percent in the past 11 years and we have been able to meet that challenge not with an increased staff but with improved efficiency, effective use of automation, technology and resource management,” he added. In 2010, the Commissioner’s office achieved its 10th consecutive year of 100 percent audit compliance from the Department of Taxation, as well the Auditor of Public Accounts. Harris said that recent accomplishments and examples of his office working effectively with the Hanover County Board of Supervisors include the opening of a DMV Select branch office in the Commissioner and Treasurer offices at the County Government Center, the simpli-

fication of the processes associated with the tax relief for the elderly and disabled program, and a collaborative partnership with the county administration and treasurer’s office to monitor county and state revenue streams to respond effectively to changing economic forces and indicators. “My office, the Treasurer’s office and the county administration work together extremely well,” Harris said. “Because of that partnership we have been able to anticipate revenue reductions and utilize available taxpayer funds more effectively during the recent economic downturn.” The office also completed the implementation of a document imaging system that allows for better management and security of taxpayer information and filings. “We continue to be excited about the benefits associated with retaining documents digitally,” Harris said. “It allows us to store taxpayer information more efficiently, access that information more quickly and eliminates the need for additional bricks and mortar to store paper.”

During the next four years, Harris said he intends to continue seeking new opportunities for citizens to interact with his office online. “Our 21st century society demands that we provide more efficiency in the accessibility of our services,” he said. “We have to offer a variety of methods that allow citizens to interact with us as they need and when it is convenient for them.” In 1999, Harris faced opponents in both the Republican Primary as well as the General Election and was unopposed in the 2003 and 2007 election. In 2003, he became one of the first Commissioners of Revenue in the Commonwealth to attain designation as a Master Commissioner of the Revenue from the University of Virginia’s Weldon Cooper Center for Public Policy. Harris is a lifelong resident of Hanover County. He is a graduate of Hanover County Public Schools and is a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and a Master’s Degree in Public Administration. He and his wife Wendy have three grown children and live in the Hanover Courthouse area.

OPINION | The Local Views From the editor

School system seems to be issue in elections Based on the number of phone calls and comments, the operation of Hanover County Public Schools seems to be considered a key issue in this year’s elections. In other words, since the Board of Supervisors appoints members to the School Board, some voters say they are keeping a keen eye on several school system related items, including the selection of a new superintendent. The Central Office is often addressed — with most citizens questioning the need for the number of employees making up the administrative staff. With Dr. Stewart D. Roberson preparing to retire, this, no doubt, will confront his successor. And then there’s the issue of an appointed School Board. While no one is disputing the qualifications of those currently serving, do you think these are seats voters should determine? Or are you satisfied with the appointments made by the supervisors? Do we need change on the School Board? Of course, the answers vary — at least from those who have discussed it. What do you think? Those candidates who have stopped by to talk about their platforms do agree that funding for education and public safety rank at the top.

Etc. ☞ Canova Peterson, a candidate for supervisor representing the Mechanicsville District, came by the office last week to chat. In talking about his candidacy and county government, he brought up a question that certainly attracted this writer’s attention. To paraphrase, Peterson asked: If some offices/agencies funded at the discretion of the Board of Supervisors have been managing with less personnel, are those positions really needed? Something to think about, isn’t it?! ☞ Speaking of the Mechanicsville District, still haven’t received official confirmation on Deborah Winans’ plans. As she completes her first term, she is serving as chair of the supervisors this year. Melody Kinser

At-large laws for dogs go into eect April 1 Every year, beginning April 1 through June 30, it is unlawful for dogs anywhere in Hanover County to be running off their property without being leashed. The county’s “leash lawâ€? applies throughout the year in the suburban area. Between April 1 and June 30, it is extended to the rural areas as well because the births of vulnerable livestock, such as baby lambs and calves, tend to take place during this period. Wildlife activity and rabies cases also generally increase in the April 1 through June 30 time frame. Any dogs caught running off their owner’s property will be see DOGS, pg. 19 `

LETTERS Continued from pg. 6 b

The liberals under Barack Obama and his socialist-communist czars are trying to turn America into a European socialist state where our freedoms are taken away and our lives are controlled by the government. I don’t think a majority of Americans realize how dangerous Obama is and that we cannot survive another four years of his rule and be the same great country that we were before he came to power. Mr. Sneed seems like an intelligent and learned man. Why can’t he see this truth

instead of spouting off the propaganda of the Left? Mr. Sneed says he is a real patriot. I don’t think so. Liberals can’t be patriots. Liberalism puts forth a one-world agenda where every country is just as good as the next. There is nothing special about our beloved America according to liberalism. They are ashamed and embarrassed by our wealth and blessings even though we are the most generous country in all the world. We conservatives thank God, our Creator, for our blessings and believe He blessed us because of our Judeo-Christian heritage and because we have

notice to help with anything she might need.” Holt’s daughter Sarah, who lives in New York City, is a recent newlywed and her son Tim makes his home in Woodbridge. She said she wants to spend more time with her children and new sonin-law Tim. Her husband Richard “Rich,” she said with a smile, is “a little jealous” about her retiring. “He thinks it should be the other way around.” The Holts have been together more than 30 years. “I met my husband at my cousin’s wedding in Winston-Salem (N.C.). I was living in Ohio at the time and he had just been transferred to Richmond and was living in Ashland. We dated long distance for about a year and decided to get married.” Thinking back to their courtship, she said they agreed the long distance issue was an obstacle. “This is ridiculous – let’s get married,” she recalled them saying. “And I’ve lived in Hanover County ever since. We both love it here – this is home.” Holt, who said she loves to travel, has family members in cities including Chicago and San Francisco. Her retirement will find her crisscrossing the country. She also said she is “anxious to get back into the regular golfing season with the ladies at the Hanover Country Club.” “I also do a lot of craft projects, sewing projects and scrapbooking and those are things that I’ve kind of had to put to the side,” Holt said. “And I’ve got several projects I need to finish and work on – at my leisure.”

spent billions of dollars sending missionaries around the world with the true story of one true God and His Son, Jesus Christ. We are in danger of losing these blessings, however, if we continue in our multitude of sings such as abortion, homosexuality, same-sex marriage and our Godless atheism and liberalism. Barack Obama shows his contempt for our great country by going around the world apologizing for America, and bowing and scraping to every two-bit anti-American thug that comes his way. He gives a State Dinner to the Butcher of Red China while giving the

back of the hand to the prime minister of our great friend and ally, Israel. He also gives the back of the hand to Christians while favoring the evil Islamic religion. At the end of Sneed’s letter he says that he is a liberal and an atheist. And very often these two philosophies go together. Maybe this could explain the anger, bitterness and name-calling that are evident in his letters. Without God in your life and the assurance of a home in heaven after this short life is over, there can be no real joy in a person’s life. see LETTERS, pg. 15 `

Via Club in Pebble Creek. Peace represents more than 80,000 in his district, and has been a consistent supporter of the current governor. The admiration is mutual. “It’s nice to be here this morning to honor Chris and to thank you for your support for him,” McDonnell said. “ I can tell you after 20 years in office you are only able to achieve things if you’ve got an army of friends who believe in your cause that want to donate some of their time and talent in order to get you and keep you in office. Thanks for what you’ve done for Chris over the three terms,” he added. McDonnell thanked the group for their continued support of his ongoing agenda. “I’m so appreciative of you who worked so hard for me, Bill Bolling and Ken Cucinelli in the last election and we’re working hard to do things that reflect your values that reflect the great traditions of Virginia,” McDonnell said. The governor cited econom-

ic development as a major focus for his administration, and said increasing entrepreneurship provides a solid foundation to continued success in Virginia. “We want to make sure that we are entrepreneurial, competitive and giving people greater access to the American dream,” he said. MC Donnell said he made some tough decisions during the first months of his campaign in an effort to curb spending in economically challenging times. Those reductions amounted to about $4.2 billion in the last budget. “We ended up with a budget surplus of $400 million as a result of those cuts, and that’s why we were able to invest these new monies in higher education, transportation and job creation — the things that plant the seeds for future economic growth,” the governor said. Under McDonnell’s administration, Virginia enjoys the eighth lowest unemployment rate in the nation, and the state is showing a surplus. “We’re turning the corner a little faster than most,”

Ashley Peace, left, and her husband, Del. Chris Peace, R-97, hold their son Henry during last Wednesday’s event. Looking on is Gov. Bob McDonnell.

McDonnell said. The governor credited those successes to legislators like Peace. “I’m here to support my friend Chris Peace,” he said. “He is doing a great job in the General Assembly, and I thank you for continuing to rehire him out here.” Peace serves of four major committees in the legislation and his hard work has been instrumental on several key issues, according to the governor. “He is a busy guy. We’ve

asked him to carry a lot of legislation on the Courts and Justice Committee on law enforcement issues,” McDonnell said. “He’s been a leader on some of the government reform issues,” the governor added. Peace is seeking his fourth term in the General Assembly in a district that includes parts of Hanover, Caroline, Spotsylvania, King William and King and Queen counties and all of New Kent County. Peace and his wife Ashley reside in Mechanicsville with their two small children.


LETTERS Continued from pg. 8 b

Believe God’s Word or not, Mr.. Sneed, shake your fist in the face of God and call us superstitious, ignorant peasants if you life, but nothing can change the truth of God’s Word. On a personal level, I would like to say that my wife and I recently lost a precious little granddaughter named Sydney. She was only 6 months old and we never really got to know her. I and my family were greatly saddened by little Sydney’s passing, but, because of our faith in Jesus Christ, we know we will get to see her again someday and spend all of eternity with her in heaven. I pray that Mr. Sneed and everyone reading this letter will one day before it is too late receive Jesus Christ as their Savior and spend all of eternity with us in heaven. Raymond C. Germeroth Mechanicsville

Compassion is an issue My family owns and operates a gas station in Richmond, so I could totally relate to Gary’s response letter — but it was the lack of compassion in Rebecca McGeorge’s letter that prompts me to write today. I understand that it is frustrating when a business isn’t able to provide you with service during their operating hours, but

did you ever think about what may have happened? Business owners are people as well, with lives and families outside of the business site. Often, if outside help is used at all, there are employees who are expected to open businesses, and, sadly, not all employees take their jobs seriously or know or care about the consequences of opening late. Did Ms. McGeorge ever stop to think about the reasons why the business wasn’t available? With a business like Gary’s, I’m sure it wasn’t laziness on his part as his store has been in Hanover for a very, very long time, though I’m almost positive he would have loved to have been playing golf or having dinner with his family. As unkind as this may sound, Ms. McGeorge’s attitude struck me as uncaring, unsympathetic and selfish. She must not have children who get sick or family members who have emergencies come up. It also was very clear to me that she doesn’t understand just how much energy goes into running a small business. My husband works 50-plus hours a week at our location, seven days a week and has for the five years we’ve been there. He has no sick days because there is no one else willing to cover his shift. Vacations are few and far between for the same reason. Every night he comes home he is exhausted from working a 10-hour shift. He wakes up

BULK MULCH

every morning at 5 a.m. so he can open at 6 a.m. There have been days where he is so tired he sleeps through his alarm and has been late but it is by no means a regular occurrence. Business owners don’t have it as great as everyone seems to think. The stress of running numbers, trying to stay afloat

while providing quality service, dealing with rude customers, juggling employees who don’t always take their jobs seriously or understand all that goes on behind the scenes while trying to maintain some semblance of family is not an easy task. see LETTERS, pg. 19 `

Not every business owner has the perfect family. There may not be someone else available to pick up a sick child from school or daycare, to tend to the family member who was just in a car accident and was rushed to the hospital, or to meet the accountant to brainstorm on how to keep the business out of the red so they can continue to feed and clothe their family and stay off of government assistance. Emergencies aren’t scheduled, they pop up when you least expect it and sometimes with devastating results. I would encourage Ms. McGeorge to stop for a moment and think, use compassion and try to put herself in someone else’s shoes before she makes such a snap judgment because she in inconvenienced. And to Ms. McGeorge herself, while I’m sure Gary appreciates your patronage and would have loved to have been able to take care of your need, frankly your shoe repair doesn’t come first in the event of an emergency. Your dry cleaning can wait another hour while someone tends to a dying parent or sick child or whatever other

Violations also can result in uniform summons or a written warning being issued. Each instance of a dog belonging to a particular owner running at-large is a separate violation, and an additional penalty will apply regardless of whether the same dog is involved. If you see a dog running at-large, call Hanover County emergency came up that caused them to be 10 minutes late. And if it wasn’t an emergency, if it was something as simple as whoever was responsible for opening overslept, try to remember that there are often unknown reasons and that people aren’t perfect. If you have never owned a small business, running it with minimal outside employee help, then, while entitled to your opinion, you really should keep it to yourself because you obviously know nothing of what it takes and the sacrifices the people who run them make every day just to provide you with stellar service.

DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) is unconstitutional. It imposes by law a religious definition on a secular activity, which violates the First Amendment. I know, I know — you don’t want that law enforced, either. Too bad, as our founding fathers understood how important it is, which is why they made it the first part of the first entry in the Bill of Rights. Moreover, government executives at every level from the president down to your local police chief make decisions on whether or not they actively and/or consistently pursue enforcement of specific laws. They do so for a myriad of reasons, and they are within their rights to do so. We’re all tightening our belts these days; the Justice Department has to prioritize how it spends its money just like everyone else, and I would certainly rather see them spend it on the violent and heinous crimes than on sticking their noses into people’s bedrooms. Now, in response to Leslie Zodun’s letter: I’m very glad to see that you understand the idea of taking our property and give it to others. This is exactly what the Republicans in government are doing to us: Taking our money, our services, our future and our freedom and giving it to the moneyed interests and corporate shills. Oh, wait … you meant the Liberals? Then please explain why taking property and giving it to help as many as possible, as Jesus teaches, is “bad” … but taking property and giving it to a very few already-filthy-rich people so they can sock it away is “good”? And spare us the various versions of the trickle-down economics silliness – that’s been proven to be untrue so many times, the magnetic stripe’s worn thin. Steve Sneed Mechanicsville

the Solid Waste Convenience Centers. The decals provide entry at no cost. Alternative B would eliminate the permanent vehicle decal fee and the SWCC permit fee, with, Casey said, a budget impact of $120,000 less net income. He said customers are notified at the convenience centers if they need a permit. Of 125,000 vehicles in the county, 120,000 are required to have the decal. He estimated 85,000, or 70 percent, “actually have the decal displayed.” South Anna District supervisor John Gordon said, “The time has come for the elimination of the decal” and “that this is an opportunity for some tax relief for our citizens.” He said he was “of the opinion Alternative A is the way to go,” saying it “provides a free convenience center permit to place on those vehicles that are used to transport trash to our transfer station.” Beaverdam District supervisor Aubrey Stanley said the board “should have more choices.” Chickahominy District supervisor Robert

Setliff said he preferred Alternative B, because there would be “less confusion if we kept same system.” Henry District supervisor Charles McGhee said, while he appreciated the comments, he said there were “flaws in the logic. What enforcement is there going to be?” He also said that Alternative B would “cost another $5,000. Alternative A does what we want to get done — gives us free access, weeds out people we don’t want there in the first place. I think Alternative A makes more sense in what we’re trying to do.” Casey answered “yes” when Ashland District supervisor Ed Via asked “If you already have a square sticker on your car, will it continue to be good?” “We need this process to be citizen-friendly,” Gordon said. The supervisors unanimously agreed to the April 13 public hearing. A public hearing on the Fiscal Year 2012 budget will get under way at 7 p.m. today in the Administration Building at the Government Complex at Hanover Courthouse. The budget is scheduled to be adopted on April 13.

Sheriff ’s Office investigates bomb threats at several Hanover County schools The Hanover County Sheriff’s Office is conducting multiple investigations into both direct and implied threats to several schools in Hanover County.

and Parents reporting threatening language posted on social networking sites. A 14-year-old Hanover High School was identified late last week as being responsible for communicating a threat over the social network site, formspring.me, on March 24. She will be charged with electronically communicating a threat and threatening to bomb. Capt. Michael J. Trice said, “This threat was not credible and is considered a hoax.” He also said, “Comments on social networking sites can be broadly distributed and, as a result, create significant anxiety. This is an example of the negative and harmful effects of not only inappropriate but criminal behavior on the Internet.”

While there exists no evidence that any of these threats are credible, the Sheriff’s Office has been working with Hanover Schools, Hanover Fire, and other public safety agencies to take the measures necessary to ensure a safe learning environment. These steps have included physical sweeps of the schools, K-9 sweeps of the schools, additional law enforcement presence at the schools, additional monitoring by school personnel, conducting targeted interviews of students, and working with social networking sites to identify those responsible for threatening language. Making threats to bomb is a felony and those found responsible for these threats will be charged. In the cases involving social

networking threats, those individuals also can be held accountable in Hanover County, even if the threats did not originate here. Actions such as these result in considerable deployment of public safety resources, disruption of the school environment, and anxiety among students and parents. The Sheriff’s Office remains committed to identifying those responsible for these threats. The Sheriff ’s Office urges anyone with knowledge of those responsible for these crimes to contact the Sheriff’s Office at 804365-6140 or Crime Stoppers at 804-780-1000. Information also can be sent anonymously by texting to CRIMES or 274637. All messages should begin with “itip”.

Raiders overcome errors to down Patriots 6-5 By Dave Lawrence For The Mechanicsville Local To err is human. To pull out a victory despite an error-prone defense may not be divine, but it is pretty sweet. That’s what Atlee found out Friday night when center fielder Cody Farrar’s single drove in third baseman Conner Hall with two outs in the bottom of the sixth inning. The RBI helped the Raiders overcome a five-error performance and claim a 6-5 victory over visiting Patrick Henry in the cross county rivalry. No. 3 Atlee (2-1) was led by right fielder Chop Pulisic with two hits and one RBI. Second baseman Michael Harmon had a double, a sacrifice bunt and an RBI. Hall had a two-out double in the sixth inning that set up

game-winning score. The Patriots were led by second baseman Brian Collins and first baseman Hunter Wilkinson with two hits apiece. Collins also scored a run. Right fielder Tyler Ross had a double and two RBI. “It was a tough ball game,” said Atlee coach Kevin Elrod. “It was a scramble.” Atlee started out strong. Starting pitcher James Walsh held the Patriots scoreless through the first 2-2/3 innings. The Patrick Henry rally began with a two-out single to Collins. Center fielder Tripp Dodson reached on an error that should have been the third out. Third baseman Cody Crawley singled in Collins. Ross doubled in Dodson and Crawley, then scored on a fielder’s choice.

By the time Walsh got the Raiders out of the inning, he had thrown 81 pitches. He kept pitching until giving up with a single with two out in the fifth inning, finishing with 135 pitches, giving up six hits and striking out nine. Even though Elrod called for reliever Ryan Bettinger, he thought Walsh had more left in his arm. “I think James Walsh came out and did a great job,” Elrod said. “I didn’t want him to throw as many pitches as he did, but I think my man could have gone 30, 40, 50 more pitches because see BASEBALL, pg. 41 ` Charlie Leffler/The Local

Atlee pitcher James Walsh showed resilience in a solid stay on the mound with 135 pitches in five innings of work.

Richmond must maintain basketball madness By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Strange things were happening around the Richmond area this past week in a sports world Twilight Zone kind of way. Walking through a Mechanicsville grocery store on Thursday, my attention was Charlie Leffler/The Local

Hanover County basketball fans should not be surprised by the success of VCU’s Brandon Rozzell, center right, after watching him tear up the county courts during his years at Highland Springs.

grabbed by two shoppers laying out strategy on what Virginia Commonwealth and the University of Richmond needed to do to win their next basketball games. Friday night, as Patrick Henry played baseball and softball at Atlee, people were talking basketball along the sidelines of both fields. Sunday brought people running wildly in the streets of downtown on Broad Street. Basketball talk during baseball season in Hanover County? Fans running amok in down-

town Richmond? In the immortal words of ESPN analyst Dick Vitale: “Are you kidding me?” While late March basketball madness is not out of the ordinary in places such as Kentucky, Indiana, Kansas or North Carolina, for Richmond, Virginia it was as unusual as… well… the Spiders and the Rams both making the NCAA Sweet 16 together. But with that unbridled basketball success, suddenly the city of Richmond turned into the hoops capital of the world. With

both VCU and the University of Richmond playing on into the second week of the NCAA Tournament, America’s collective basketball interest was tuned in to the city in the South. Many looked on in envy, some with wonder and others with appreciation. “Richmond is a basketball town and I think for the nation to be able to see that now is great,” said UR head coach Chris Mooney. But more importantly than the nation realizing this, it appears that the city of see MADNESS, pg. 41 `

Patriots get run away win at Atlee 16-2 Raider errors allow Patrick Henry to roll By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com The frigidly cold Friday evening temperatures may have kept the Patrick Henry bats in check early but could not cool them down all game as the No. 3 ranked Patriots rumbled past No. 7 Atlee 16-2. Despite the potency of the Patriot offense, Atlee admittedly did their own part to contribute to the final outcome. Though the official stat line only showed one error, the Raiders repeatedly misjudged catches and bobbled away throws that they would normally pull off without thought. “Oh my gosh,” Atlee head coach John Early added emphasis to the miscues. “We’ll go a couple of games and just play great defense. Then we’ll go a game and just fall apart. It’s been that progression where we’ve played two good games then played a bad game and lose because of errors.” Because the Raiders are so young, each mistake compounded the pressure. “I think when someone makes an error the next person gets a little more tight,” Early said. “They don’t want to be the next one to make an error and they’re in that situation where they have to be perfect and you can’t be perfect. You have to stay loose and play your game. It fed and it just kept building and building. Patrick Henry’s a good team but we really made them look real good.” Though Early felt the frigid temperatures played no role in the game, Patriots’ coach Matt Crowder felt otherwise when it came to his team, especially on defense. “We’re not a cold weather team and it made me nervous

today because it’s cold today,” Crowder said. “It’s hard to stay loose when you’re standing on the field and cold wind’s blowing down on you…Your hands get cold and you can’t quite get a grip on the ball.” Patrick Henry had to overcome more obstacles than the weather by taking the field absent three starters. But Crowder reiterated the depth of talent on his squad and it showed as the game progressed. Early on it looked as if it was going to be a battle to the wire as Atlee found an answer for every Patriot score. With one out in the top of the first, the Patriot’s fill in second baseman Ellen Davidson reached and advanced to second on a bunt when the throw to first was wide. Next up Ashley Samuels sent a RBI single down the first base line to drive in Davidson for a 1-0 lead. Atlee’s Taylor Sutherland led things off in the bottom of the inning with a double down the left field line then tied the game 1-1 when Jessica Holte’s pop up to short left fell to the grass. PH regained the lead in the top of the third when Davidson

once again reached on a bunt and advanced on a walk of Samuels. A groundout by Sam Moore moved Davidson to third and Katie Woody’s single to short brought her home. Once again Atlee found an answer in the bottom of the inning. Mackenzie Keyes led off with a single to left and reached third on a double by Holte. A walk of Delani Farrar then loaded the bags with no outs as PH pitcher Emma Mitchell struggled. Crowder admits his star sophomore has had a up and down early season. “I think Emma’s probably not where she wants to be,” Crowder said. “Emma’s a perfectionist and I know she’s struggling a little bit but she’s keeping us in the game. She’s not going to give up too many walks. She’s walked a few more people this year. I just think it’s, she hasn’t found her rhythm yet.” Atlee’s Lexi Cumbia’s singled to short center bringing Keyes home to tie the game and keep bases loaded with no outs. But the Raiders could not take advantage because when

backed into a corner Mitchell showed her best stuff; striking out the next three Atlee batters to escape the inning. “When push comes to shove and she had to get the outs then she made the pitches she needed to make,” Early said. In the bottom of the fourth with one out, Atlee loaded the bases once again but could not take advantage, watching the next two batters fall to Mitchell Ks. “We had bases loaded in the third and the fourth, one time with one out, one time with no outs and we scored one run,” Early said. “We were sitting in the dugout saying, we’re letting them hang around. If you can’t score then they’re going to jump up and get you at some point in time and we didn’t do it.” Early’s prediction held true in the top of the fifth when Patrick Henry broke the game open. Davidson once again reached on a lead off bunt, Samuels singled to left and Moore was hit by a pitch to load the bases with no outs. Next up Woody drilled

a shot up the middle plating the trio for a 5-2 PH lead. With one out, Kendalle Weaver singled to center and Woody scored. Next up, Anna Hogue singled to center but a good throw caught Weaver at the plate. Sammi Livingston joined Hogue on base after being walked and a single to short left by Allison Tingler brought both runners home. Next up, Davidson singled to right and an errant throw allowed Tingler to score for a 9-2 Patriot lead. Though Atlee pitcher Jessica Holte, playing her fourth game of the week, has been on target throughout the young season, Early pulled her in the top of the sixth simply to give her a break. “I don’t think we gave her a lot of support,” he said. “When they scored all those runs we had three or four errors. They maybe should have scored two runs and that’s frustrating on a pitcher. When it gets to the point where you think you have to make the perfect pitch and you start guiding the ball a little

bit of you lose a little focus because you’re worried about your defense behind you.” Freshman pitcher Blair Jones came to the mound in relief and it appeared the pressure of the moment got to her. “She wants to get everything right and I think that was bothering her a little bit,” Early said. “She wasn’t able to stay loose.” To add to Jones’ problems, she came to the mound just as the PH offense caught fire. The Patriots loaded the bags with one out then scored three straight on a single and two walks. Then with two out and bases still loaded, Moore stepped to the plate and drilled a grand slam shot over the left field fence to produce the final score. After being upset in their opener against Maggie Walker, Patrick Henry appears to be getting back on the right track as they prepare to host Hanover this Friday. “It will be a good measuring stick for us to see how far we’ve progressed. Hopefully we’ll have all our players back see SOFTBALL, pg. 42 `

Local basketball players such as Richmond’s Darien Brothers (#3 Monacan/Benedictine), VCU’s Bradford Burgess (#20 Manchester/Benedictine) and UR’s Justin Harper (#32 Meadowbrook) help set the foundation for basketball madness that has swept the city of Richmond and provide a template for future success in the city.

MADNESS Continued from pg. 38 b

Richmond suddenly realized it was a basketball town. While Mooney’s words apply to the past week, for the most part they are not as applicable to basketball throughout the other 51 weeks of the year. However, there is no reason things should remain that way. Prior to the amazing runs by the Rams and Spiders, college basketball has rarely been a major topic of conversation throughout the Richmond sports world. The challenge now for the area is to maintain the enthusiasm and excitement long after the 2011 NCAA Tournament comes to a close. Step 1: The basketball success of this season should go a long way towards retaining local high school talent at the local colleges. Players such as VCU’s Brandon Rozzell (Highland Springs) and Bradford Burgess (Manchester/ Benedictine) as well as UR’s Justin Harper (Meadowbrook) and Darien Brothers (Monacan/ Benedictine) have already provided ample evidence that local basketball talent can find national success without leaving the city.

“I said from day one our most important recruiting area is Richmond, Virginia and that’s definitely going to continue,” Mooney said. And there is no question as to the talent level of athletes from Richmond. If Ed Davis (Hanover/Benedictine) had not left North Carolina early for the NBA draft, five Richmond cagers would have played in this year’s Sweet 16, three of them (Davis, Burgess and Brothers) from the same high school. “I just think it speaks a lot of the players that come from this area and are kind of under the radar but work just as hard as anybody else,” Harper said. “I just think it’s great, being from Richmond to see the success that’s coming out of both of these programs.” Step 2: VCU and Richmond are distinctly different but in many ways riding in the same boat when it comes to national recognition. With the Sweet 16 run together, they have actually provide an added boost to each other’s success. “There’s a really great rivalry there but also a healthy respect,” Mooney said. “I think that we can compliment each other. I think that the schools being

perceived very differently is very good. We’re so close, it kind of generates the idea, how good basketball is in this area.” For years to come both schools will benefit off the success they have both attained. VCU’s amazing run to the Final Four is an iconic moment in NCAA sports. Yet future broadcasters will rarely talk about the Rams without mentioning Richmond. Likewise, analysts will rarely be able to talk about the Spiders without mentioning VCU’s amazing run. “That’s the kind of promotion that you can’t put a price tag on,” Mooney said. “That’s huge. We’ll really be trying to capitalize on all the momentum we’ve gained so far. “I think it’s more, we’ll build on it long term,” Mooney said. “The name recognition the city has, the school has, will effect recruits, not just this year’s class of juniors. I think it maybe has the ability to effect recruiting and motivate the city and generate excitement for a long time to come.” Step 3: Another important factor in maintaining momentum emanates from the school’s ability to remove the sigma that their head coaching positions are merely

transitional stop-offs. Richmond did their part on Sunday evening by signing Mooney to a 10-year contract extension. It remains to be seen if VCU will be able to do the same but in their favor is the fact that the Rams have played a vital part in breaking a myth that leads to the exit of many young coaches. The common misperception of the basketball world was that it is impossible to win a national championship at a non-BCS school. George Mason, Butler and now VCU have provided adequate proof that it is only a matter of time. “It probably has changed everybody’s perception of how much success a school like ours can have in the NCAA Tournament,” Mooney said. “Basketball is a game of inches, a game of bounces, so I think the talent that we can attract to Richmond is going to be very, very good and good enough to compete in the NCAA Tournament. I think those schools and the success that they’ve had is an indication of that.” When it comes to maintaining momentum, Richmond guard Kevin Smith said he was taught a lesson early in his college career. “Coach Mooney told

he felt great. He came out on top.” The Raiders bit back with two outs in the bottom third, adding a run when second baseman Michael Harmon doubled in designated hitter Jordan Underwood, who was walked. Atlee went ahead in the fifth inning. Pinch-hitter Jonathan Baughan walked, advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt by Underwood, reached third on a groundout by Harmon and scored on an error that allowed Steve Edmunds to reach first. Edmunds scored on an RBI single by Pulisic. The Patriots tied it in the top of the sixth though. Shortstop D.J. Martinez, who reached on a fielder’s choice, took off for second base and made it all the way home on three straight throwing errors. The mistakes did not get the

Raiders down. “This year we have great senior leadership. … The seniors take charge, they take charge in a positive way,” Elrod said. “I don’t have to coach as much when it comes to things like that. … It’s a stressful situation here, but the thing of it is, I think the kids enjoy it. Especially tonight.” Shortstop Conner Overton pitched the final two innings for Atlee, striking out four. Patrick Henry coach Brad Nuckols said his Patriots kept it close. “I thought we were with them the whole time,” Nuckols said. “So far this season we’ve played in spurts. We need a little more consistency. I think when we do that, and we start winning some games, we can get some confidence.” Patrick Henry...... 004 001 0 – 5 7 3 Atlee..................... 021 021 x – 6 9 5 Austin, Palmer (3) and Bugas.

us years ago, when you begin to win you earn this responsibility to somewhat stay there,” Smith said. “We’ve kind of earned our way, year by year, into getting better and better record wise and getting to be more recognizable. But just holding ourselves accountable for that responsibility to keep the program at

that level is what I see as most important.” The same can be said about the enthusiasm of the local fans that support the sport. They too must take on the responsibility of maintaining the momentum of basketball at their respective schools to ensure the madness continues.

Denny Hamlin’s race shifts to RIR Charity event moves with Southside season canceled

DENNY HAMLIN SHORT TRACK SHOWDOWN April 28: 75-lap Late Model race at Richmond International Raceway.

By Michael Phillips Media General News Services Last week Richmond International Raceway announced that it is bringing Denny Hamlin’s annual charity event to the track as part of its April NASCAR weekend. Hamlin made the announcement on a live video feed that can be seen on the track’s Facebook page. With Southside Speedway canceling its season, a new venue was needed for the Denny Hamlin Short Track Showdown, which benefits the fight against cystic fibrosis. “It’s an opportunity for local stars to run here,” RIR president Doug Fritz said. “Also, at the same time, they’ll get to run against Sprint Cup stars.” Hamlin’s event has become a star-studded part of the NASCAR calendar, and this year’s race is scheduled to include Tony Stewart, Kasey

But No. 9 LeeDavis scored the final run and held on to beat No. 6 Cosby 8-7 on a cold, blustery Thursday in Midlothian.
