The Local Pick:

Headstone dedication for Latane set April 10 By Melody Kinser mkinser@mechlocal.com Capt. William Latane of the Essex Light Dragoons will be remembered on Saturday, April 10, with a headstone dedication ceremony at the Newton Family Cemetery at Summer Hill Farm on River Road in Hanover County. The program, under the direction of Capt. William Latane Camp 1690, Sons of Confederate Veterans, Mechanicsville, is scheduled to get under way at 11 a.m. A member of the 9th Virginia Cavalry, Company F, Latane’s death, according to Jefferson F. Ellett, Dedication Committee chairman, was the only Confederate fatality that occurred during J.E.B. Stuart’s famous ride around McClellan’s army in June of 1862. “A historical marker was placed many years ago in the corner of the Summer Hill Plantation, graveyard” Ellett said, “where he was laid to rest, but until this time the gallant captain himself has not had a permanent headstone.” Latane’s story is said to “have it all,” with an event that symbolized the lost cause of Southern independence. His life inspired a poem by John Reuben Thompson and a painting – “The Burial of Latane’’ — by William D. Washington. The painting is in a private collection in Delaware. Washington became a pro-

5 BUSINESS Earl J. Hunter Jr. attended the HABCC Legislative Reception on March 23.

“Burial of Latane, 1997.35. Virginia Historical Society.”

According to the catalog from the Virginia Historical Society, “Burial of Latane” was an 1868 engraving by A.G. Campbell of Washington, D.C., after an 1864 painting by W.D. Washington. “In a famous Civil War incident, during the Peninsula campaign in June 1862 Confederate Gen. Jeb Stuart’s cavalry force rode completely around the Union army. The only Confederate killed on the ride was Captain William Latane, whose body was left in Hanover County for burial. That the ceremony was conducted with only women and blacks present, and no white men, became material for a poem by John R. Thompson, which in turn inspired a painting by William D. Washington in 1864.”

fessor of fine arts at Virginia Military Institute and painted other portraits before dying at the age of 37. He became the first professor at VMI to die of non-battle wounds while teaching there. His painting of the burial showed the strength of the women during the war as they shouldered the burden of duty to perform the Christian rites on a fallen officer and buried him beside one of their own cousins, William Phelps, who had been killed early in the war. The ancestors of the ladies of Westwood Farm — where the body was prepared for burial — is across the road from Summer Hill Farm. They

are related to the Newtons of Summer Hill Farm and still own the property. Latane served under Gen. J.E.B. Stuart, a name that continues with the fifth generation. The Latane family still has a large number of descendants in Essex County and the Richmond area. Westwood and Summerhill houses are still standing.

The totals were: $$5,615,500; $3,885,000; $1,730,500; -30.8 percent. As of March 24, the budget the state approved added $1,460,000 to the reduction change. The revision in local aid to the commonwealth was $440,000 under reduction. Impact on constitutional officers at that time showed FY10, $5,615,500; FY11, $4,905,000; reduction of $(710,500); and percentage reduction of -12.7 percent. McGettigan said state budget impacts to the county are: ■ General Fund Revenues – Constitutional Officers,

$1,460,000; Local Aid to Commonwealth (payments to the state), $440,000; Social Services, $69,751; Juvenile Court Services, $20,000; Increased Revenues, $930,249. ■ Reduction in Expenses – VRS (Virginia Retirement System) Group Life Insurance, $330,000. ■ Net General Fund — $1,260,249. ■ CSA Fund Reduction in Revenues – $50,000.

Additional state revenue comes in under reduction of $5,372,237, -5.8 percent. Total state base revenue cuts total $15,197,047, 16.4 percent.

The nearly $1.4 million additional funding, McGettigan said, may be used to “mitigate layoffs due to classroom size increases.” With almost $15.2 million added, she said the funding

Dispatch System and associated “20 Points of Excellence.” The “20 Points of Excellence” are standards that must be met by agencies before they can receive accreditation; each point must be verified through documentation. To receive this Emergency Fire Dispatch Center accreditation, the department had to achieve scores of no lower than 90 percent in seven categories and a total compliance score of at least 95 percent. The department was scored on responses to 25 randomly-selected calls from October 2009. There also was a site visit to verify Hanover’s operations in 2008.

will provide “short-term relief basically to school divisions throughout the state. There will be a deferral of the VRS cost savings to offset additional cuts and Group Life Insurance.” McGettigan and County Administrator Cecil R. “Rhu” Harris Jr. recommended that the Economic Downturn Reserve be restored. The county and school system are partners in the reserve, which was established on June 30, 2009. At that time, $2,100,000 was designated. Proposed budget use for FY11 and FY12 are $1,000,000 and $1,100,000, respectively. She said additional state revenue restores $500,000 to the base, which requires less use of the reserve. For FY11 and FY12, the usage will be targeted at $500,000 each year. Due to that funding measure, $1,100,000 is being made available for a prolonged recession. “FY12 still has some challenges ahead for us,” McGettigan said. Amendments being considered for presentation when the Board of Supervisors adopts the budget on April 14 include (same numbers for revenues and expenditures): ■ General Fund — $236,489. ■ CSA Fund — $50,000.

When someone calls with a reported fire, Hanover Communications Officers have a list of specific questions that enable firefighters and other emergency services personnel to know the exact details of the situation. The protocols are automated into the dispatch system and there are backups in case the Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) system goes down, for example. As part of the accreditation, Hanover Emergency Communications also had to demonstrate that it complies with all standards requiring proper system oversight, fire administration controls and quality improvement programs. All emergency call-takers had to be properly certified: in Hanover’s case, all communications officers get 2½ months of classroom training and eight to 12 months

■ School Fund — $5,255,237. The FY11 proposed budget with amendments is: ■ General Fund — $198,464,054. ■ School Fund — $179,007,351. ■ Utilities Fund – $41,892,527. ■ Self Insurance Fund – $28,663,874. ■ Community Services Fund — $11,069,878. ■ Food Services Fund – $7,071,141. ■ School Improvements Fund – $6,646,000. ■ Comprehensive Services Fund – $6,150,467. ■ County Improvements Fund – $3,671,000. ■ Fleet Services Fund – $2,159,744. ■ Lewistown Commerce Center CDA Fund – $844,750. ■ Airport Fund – $689,324. ■ Bell Creek CDA Fund – $605,000. ■ Economic Development Fund – $264,080. ■ Textbook Fund – $256,211. ■ Total – $487,455,401. ■ Less Transfers – $103,772,324. ■ Total without Transfers — $383,683,077.

of on-the-job training. “Our dispatchers undergo an extensive amount of training in order to best serve the public,” Corina Nuckols, senior supervisor-quality assurance, said. “IAED requires a minimum of 36 hours twice a year in order to maintain the EMD/EFD certification. The dispatchers are also required to re-certify every two years. If help is needed, we will send the appropriate response in a timely manner.” This is the department’s second major accreditation in two years. In 2008, the department became only the 123rd agency in the world to be accredited as an Emergency Medical Dispatch (EMD) Center of Excellence by the IAED. The county will be formally recognized by the IAED at an upcoming conference.

OPINION | The Local Views From the editor

This is it: Supervisors welcome budget input Starting at 7 p.m. today, the Hanover County Board of Supervisors will provide the public with an opportunity to speak out about the budget proposal offered by County Administrator Cecil R. “Rhu” Harris Jr. Some tweaking became necessary last week when additional funding poured into county government and the school system, thanks to the General Assembly’s budget plan. Each body received another $1 million, a much needed boost to operations. So, tonight is the night to express yourself if you have any concerns, suggestions, recommendations, ideas about how the county will use funds. As a taxpayer and citizen, you have that right. If there’s something on your mind pertaining to budgetary issues with the county government or the school district, now is your chance to be heard.

Etc. ☞ Ah, anonymity — a blessing and a curse throughout the years. To get to the point, anonymous letters will not be published. Of course, those that arrive in here without a valid signature and address will not be published. We welcome your opinions and thoughts, but if you want to be published, you must provide name, address and telephone number for verification purposes. Since Mr. Anonymous makes occasional appearances, this is just a friendly reminder. Again, if you don’t sign, your letter cannot be used. ☞ With the arrival of April on Thursday, it’s time to start preparing for the Hanover Tomato Festival. This year’s event will be held Saturday, July 10, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Pole Green Park. Parks & Recrecation Department director Greg Sager said organizers are working on solutions to alleviate traffic problems that were encountered last year. ☞ Kudos to the Hanover Association of Businesses and Chamber of Commerce for a great Legislative Reception on Tuesday, March 23 at the Times-Dispatch Hanover plant.

Troubled Hearts By Pastor David Crisp, Senior Pastor

A

ccording to John’s gospel, just after the events that we think of as the “Palm Sunday triumphal entry,” some Greeks came to Philip asking for access to Jesus, saying, “We want to see Jesus!” I’ve often thought that in this short appeal, these obscure unnamed Greeks utter the most profound request ever made. It should be the cry of all our hearts – “We want to see Jesus!” Jesus speaks to them and all who are listening, (then and now) telling them a parable about a seed: “Unless a seed falls to the ground and dies, it remains to itself, alone. But if it dies, it will produce many seeds! Whoever loves his life will lose it, but the man who does not love his life in this world, will keep it for all eternity!” (John 12:23-26) It is interesting to me that this is what was on Jesus heart and mind immediately after the cheering crowds joyfully proclaimed him their Messiah and King. He knew what lay ahead. He knew the supreme sacrifice that was waiting to be fulfilled. He knew the cheering crowd would turn against Him and become a jeering mob blindly shouting, “Crucify!” just five days hence. And while Jesus had moved unflinchingly forward towards his goal - setting his face like a flint towards Jerusalem - the Son of Man now expressed emotions that we can easily relate to: “and now my heart is troubled…” (John 12:7) Jesus lets us into his humanity. He shows us that he knows how it feels to be emotionally overwhelmed. Those feelings would only grow stronger during his prayers in the garden of Gethsemane. Yet, His human emotions never deterred his obedience - his commitment to His father … and all of us.

H

ow often have I, and probably each of us, allowed our “troubled hearts” to become the driving force in our behavior? Troubled hearts can come from a varitey of emotions as varied as humans themselves: fear, anger, hurt, betrayal, humiliation, frustration, insecurity, and pride, to name but a few. Jesus overcomes His emotions and pushes through them to obedience by keeping His goal in the forefront – His eye on the prize! After relating, “And now my heart is troubled, “He asks himself a question and then answers it. “What shall I Say? Father, save me from this hour? No! It was for this very reason that I came to this hour!” Father glorify Your name! (John 12:27-28) What an example of Spirit-led purpose-driven living! Emotions come as reactions to temporary circumstances. Sometimes they are extremely “troubling!” (Although, I dare say, none of us has ever faced imminent crucifixion!) Still, we daily face things that are indeed troubling. The Bible doesn’t discount these things. Jesus promises suffering, hardship and persecution. The Apostles confirm, both in their writings and with their experiences, that “all those who seek to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution” (2Tim. 3:12) and that we should not be surprised at painful trials and suffering as though “something strange is happening to us.” (1Pet. 4:12) Rather, we should expect things that, in this world, are troubling! (John 16:33)

O

ur attitude should be the same as Christ Jesus. (Phil. 2:5) Jesus looked past the cross, through the empty tomb to a day when we would be united with Him forever. The Bible calls this reality “the joy set before Him.” For this joyful reason, (us!) He “endured the cross.” (Heb. 12:2) We were His motivation . . . and now He is ours! We need to look past our present troubling circumstance, which, according to Rom. 8:18 are “not even worth mentioning compared to the surpassing glory that will be revealed in us,” to that day when all will be made right and we will be with Him forever! Because He was faithful, we can be too. Because He endured, so can we. “So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good.” (1Pet. 4:19)

this inequality. Now obviously if you have gotten this far you can read and maybe you read in The Local that March 31 is the date set for “public to comment on budget”. Maybe also you read that Marcy Cotov, (a very intelligent and nice lady) said “. . . the following taxes to remain the same . . . aircraft personal property tax rate at $0.50” — not an increase to $1 or $1.50 or even $1.80,

which would still be half of the going personal property tax rate for you and me. How in today’s economic environment can we ignore both the opportunity and equality side of an issue and that is to have everyone pay taxes fairly and equitably, including those such as our former Republican delegate? Or is this just blatant “we Republicans look after our own.” (This is an opportunity for any Republicans that would like to justify this situation to write in.)

M

y dear readers, my heart is troubled - it is troubled by numerous things going on right now in this world and the gathering dark clouds of potential trouble ahead. I am sure many of your hearts are as well. But what should we say? Father, save us from this hour? No! It was for this very hour that we were placed on this earth and into the body of Christ! Let’s not allow our emotions – anger, fear, or any other- to deter us from obedience. Let us commit ourselves to our faithful Creator and continue to do good! Do not be overcome with evil, but overcome evil with good!

Now for those with kids in school, think about Dr Stewart Roberson’s comment on the budget: “Budget times are extremely tough. How do we maintain this school system? These cuts hurt deeper and how do we minimize the long-term impact this could have on the children of Hanover.” Tom Donahue, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, said: “The bottom line is this nation cannot expect to lead he 21st century information and technology-

massey.vcu.edu

driven global economy when we have upwards of 30 percent of our young people not graduating from high school.” How about safety in schools? Because of budget constraints, in November, our sheriff, Col. V. Stuart Cook removed the resource officers from the middle schools. If we didn’t need them in the first place, why were they there? If we do need them, why are they not there? Do you think we could replace them with $500,000? Answer: I don’t know, but don’t tax equitably or touch the scared airplane cow. So with all the “Tea Partiers,” Patriot groups, etc., wanting to give control of government back to the people, would you not think we could just get an answer to the question of why the difference in tax rates? We probably could, but who cares? Nobody goes to the Board of Supervisors meetings and, besides me, nobody will raise this issue. And why do I care? I don’t have kids in school. I did go to school in Hanover and I’m glad that they are much better than when I went. I do think education is critical for our future. But the bottom line, what is occurring here is wrong and if it isn’t the Board of Supervisors or somebody should explain why it isn’t. So here is what you do: Don’t worry about kids in school. Don’t think about is this issue fair and equitable for all. Don’t investigate and try to learn more (hint: airport general fund — your tax money). Do the following: Scream about Obama, join a “Patriots” group, yell about your constitutional rights, complain to your neighbors about taxes, and maybe even pray to God. But do not come to complain to the board on March 31. You may effect change. Disclaimer: Any resemblance or reference to real thinking people is purely ficsee LETTERS, pg. 15 `

Ruritans enjoy another successful Shuknpul Melody Kinser

The day may have been a little cool, but blue skies welcomed attendees to the Mechanicsville Ruritan Club’s Shuknpul on Saturday to the Courthouse Ruritan Park at Hanover. Traffic started flowing into the park around 11 a.m. and continued steadily throughout the afternoon. Oysters — raw and roasted — were the food of choice for the 30th annual event. The other major attraction, tractor pulls, brought folks from around the region. At right, a group arrives ready for a good time.

Melody Kinser

While they were waiting on the oysters, many people attending the Mechanicsville Ruritan Club’s Shuknpul marked their spot at the tables located in the center area of the Courthouse Ruritan Park. Also found on the grounds were funnel cakes; vendors, including Luck Chevrolet, photo below; and Shuknpul memorabilia, such as caps, t-shirts, sweatshirts and decals. The Ruritan event supports local fire, rescue and community first responders.

LETTER Continued from pg. 8b

tion. All information here may or may not be true and is purely the opinions and ramblings of somebody who cares. Robert Crossman Mechanicsville

Writer: speak out on water (Editor’s note: The following was addressed to “All Aqua Virginia Water Consumers.”) Please take notice of all your current water bills for the past couple months as well as present. Do you notice inconsistencies in quantities and costs? Were your bills considerably higher the last two months? Aqua, for weeks, when contacted by friends and neighbors claimed we all had leaks in our toilets or lines leading to our homes. My bill for January read 84 gallons per day, which was exactly the same as my previous bill, and we were away for a week during December. Being a conservative of all utilities, I say impossible.

However, since complaining, the amount has now dropped to less than 40 gallons. My lifestyle had not changed nor was I reimbursed for the overcharge. Many of us are now reading our own meters and tallying up the cost to stay on top of Aqua Virginia. After many phone calls, Aqua finally admitted they had gone up on their rates. According to them, they charge $5.40 per 1,000 gallons and add $21 for miscellaneous fees, which include meter reading. Are we paying their meter readers’ salaries? Some of my neighbors have said they did not know how their meters are being read when their meters are full of mud and trash covering the meter reading. They refuse to give a cost breakdown for the $21, as followed by all other utility and telephone companies. I know for a fact many meters were estimated for the last couple of months way above normal usage and these people were not reimbursed properly. A meeting was held at the State Corporation Commission during February and many

can get by with charging us any amounts they choose and whenever they choose. Now, I ask: Where are our county supervisors when we need them most? Someone needs to step up to the plate and take responsibility. Please let your voice be heard. Gail Lawrence Mechanicsville

Aqua customers showed up from all over Virginia (some claim to be using rain barrels). The SCC claims they have no jurisdiction over Aqua as they were grandfathered by the old Sydnor Pump and Well, long in business before the SCC was formed. Others have contacted the Better Business Bureau as well and the BBB, in turn, has forwarded the complaints to Aqua, which has promised more than once to send a letter explaining the cost increase. To date, nothing. No one in the surrounding areas, including Hanover water consumers, Henrico and Chesterfield, has to pay such enormous fees and many have sewerage and trash pickup included. There are some Aqua consumers in Hanover who have to pay extra for sewerage fees to Hanover County and are charged according to Aqua’s billing. This raises the average cost from Aqua and the county sewerage close to $100 monthly. These people have us locked in and, with no control, it seems

Republican move no shock What I would like to know is how do you craft a constitutional challenge against the new federal health care proposal which would not also — by extension — rule that both Medicare and Medicaid are equally unconstitutional? Or for that matter the Children’s Health Insurance Plan (CHIP)? Say what you might about Attorney General

Ken Cuccinelli, what he has done recently on behalf of all Virginians should not come as a shock. To those who know him, we would be shocked if he did otherwise and acted like a statesman instead of the trial lawyer partisan that he is. However, his position on the health care bill — and those of the Republicans in the General Assembly — should also not come as a shock. Republicans simply disagree with programs that are designed to help those who need help. It’s one of their core principals — people should stand up for themselves, take care of themselves, pull themselves up by their bootstraps when things get tough. That’s also why they don’t like Social Security. People should invest their money the way they want to (boy, wouldn’t that have been interesting the last two years when the stock market tanked). Or for that matter, if they don’t invest in retirement, tough luck. My guess is that Attorney General Cuccinelli would say that he doesn’t see a distinction on the constitutionality of the federal programs — that all of those programs are unconstitutional and should be discontinued.

And didn’t they all evolve eventually out of the New Deal under President Roosevelt — an evil Democrat? Let’s not be surprised by Attorney General Cuccinelli and the Republican majority in the General Assembly. Nothing good can come out of Washington. Tell that to the elderly when frankly no health insurance company wants to provide coverage — without a federal backstop. Tell that to the single mother who just lost her job and needs health insurance not for her, but for her child. Tell that to the disabled who through no fault of their own are simply uninsurable. The increase in health care costs are simply unsustainable. Small businesses need help. The subsidies for small businesses included in the plan will be a huge help until the full measure is implemented. If President Nixon’s proposal had passed — which is virtually identical to this bill — health care premiums would have been 10 to 15 percent lower than they are today. I guess that Nixon was a liberal in wolf ’s clothing? Harley Bradshaw Mechanicsville

(Editor’s note: A series provided by the Hanover Business Council continues with Polly White, Senior Professional in Human Resources, a partner in the Richmond Performance Group, a management consulting firm specializing in strategy, process improvement and people. She can be contacted at pwhite@richmondperformancegroup.com. This article, the third of three on this topic, will further explore effective strategies for finding a job in today’s tough economy.) Whether you are looking for a job for the first time in many years or have suffered through the process more recently, you have probably figured out that the rules have changed. For the first time in more than 25 years, for most jobs, there are more qualified applicants than jobs available. This means that to find a job in today’s economy you will need to use every avenue available to ensure that your resume floats to the top.

Find an inside track. Make a list of the companies for which you would like to work. The Reference USA database can be accessed through your local library Web site with a current library card number and is an excellent way to locate companies by industry and/or geography. Once you have your list, visit their Web sites to learn more about the company and find job postings. Many companies only list job openings on their Web sites and do not advertise on job boards, newspapers and other publications. While networking, ask contacts for introductions to individuals who work for these companies.

Having a current employee walk your resume to the hiring manager or human resources can set you apart from the other applicants and garner special consideration. Consider temporary employment. Temporary work can turn into regular full-time employment. Many employers use temporary assignments to “try out” employees. In addition, temporary assignments can let you experience new industries or career possibilities while bringing in needed income. Use the Internet, but don’t make it your only source. Don’t spend your days in front of the computer. Your time is better spent out meeting

people or on the phone talking to contacts. When you use the Internet, look for industry and occupation specific job boards. While helpful, don’t limit your time to the large, generic sites. Fill in the gaps with traditional methods. Newspapers and other publications, employment agencies, search firms and job fairs can be sources for leads. Use these avenues to ensure you have covered all your bases. The trick to finding a job quickly is to use all your resources and to treat finding a job as a job. Get to “work” every day by actively searching for a position. Network and pursue as many different sources as possible. For more help and information on finding jobs, contact Goodwill Industries at www. goodwillcva.org or call 4176721.

Planning Department Taste of Hanover to Web site expands offerings benefit Hanover Arc Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com Maps, staff reports, photographs and site plans for upcoming planning cases on the agenda of the Hanover County Board of Supervisors and Hanover County Planning Commission are now available at the click of a mouse for those with Internet access. The Hanover Planning Department Web page at www.co.hanover.va.us/planning/default. htm now includes a Planning Department Public Meetings Calendar. Go to the upper right-hand corner of that page and click on the calendar, and then click the Board of Supervisors or Planning Commission public hearing in which you are interested. Clicking on that yellow-colored area will take you to the agenda, and you can then click

on each individual case on the agenda or map for additional information. Staff reports for the scheduled cases are added to the information usually a week prior to the meeting. “Our goal was to place anything anyone wants to know about the planning cases right there at their fingertips,” David Maloney, deputy director of planning, said. As a cost-saving measure (and also to save paper), the Planning Department is no longer mailing out information about the cases to its Interested Parties list. “We hope this will provide all of the same information in a way that is convenient and timely for all of our interested parties,” Maloney said. For more information, call the Planning Department at 365-6171.

USDA works to improve SNAP Goal is better access, increased participation in former Food Stamps Program Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack recently announced that USDA will award grants of up to $5 million to improve access to and increase participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) — formerly the Food Stamp Program. “The health of our nation — of our economy, our national security, and our communities — depends on the health of our families,” Vilsack said on Thursday. “These grants will allow us to improve access and increase participation in our Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program that serves as a vital resource to the most vulnerable Americans. Breaking down barriers to participation will help this Administration deliver on its goal of reducing hunger and improving nutrition across the country.”

The Food and Nutrition Act of 2008 authorized USDA to award $5 million in grants for state and local government and private non-profit organization projects to simplify SNAP application and eligibility systems and improve access to SNAP benefits by eligible households. This year, USDA is interested in funding projects that apply a process improvement process (PIP) to the State agency’s application, certification and recertification procedures to make them more efficient and effective. The Department is also interested in funding projects that involve a partnership between a State agency and one or more private nonprofit organizations. The deadline to submit grant proposal applications is June 23, 2010. “Our programs are enhanced by the creativity and support of our partners at the State and local level who work

every day to end hunger in America,” Under Secretary for Food Nutrition and Consumer Services Kevin Concannon said. “Increasing participation in this critical program and reaching more children and families in need will move us one step closer towards achieving our goal of ending childhood hunger by 2015.” USDA’s Food and Nutrition Service oversees the administration of 15 nutrition assistance programs that touch the lives of one in four Americans over the course of a year. The largest program, SNAP, puts healthy food on the table for more than 38 million people it serves each month, half of whom are children. Grant applications for organizations can be obtained at www.grants.gov.or on the Food and Nutrition Service Web site at www.fns.usda.gov/snap or by calling the grant officer, Lisa Johnson, at 703305-2848.

by Dear Jerry: Thank you so much for making such a difficult time in our life as easy as possible. From the moment we contacted Monaghan Funeral Home, you made an incredibly painful process as easy as possible with your personal attention. You anticipated our every need, made yourself available at any time to answer our questions as they arose and took care of every detail– from providing food, a limo, to creating a video honoring our Mother – thus freeing us up to focus on other pressing matters. We never had a moment’s worry as we knew everything was in your and your wonderful staff’s capable hands. We also received many compliments on the peaceful environment of the funeral home itself; we were pleased knowing that it was exactly what our Mother would have wanted. We would not hesitate to recommend your services; thank you again. Sincerely, Cindi Crawford (Katherine Hurt Family)

In an effort to address childhood hunger and its impact on child development, health and learning, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Administration for Children and Families (ACF) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) are notifying states that Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) funds available through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (Recovery Act) can be used to assist families through the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP). Through this unprecedented collaboration, ACF and FNS are joining forces to help communities provide children with adequate, nutritious meals during the summer.

LOCAL NEWS | News and Information from Mechanicsville Ashland Feed Store is presenting 2010 Chick Days The popularity of raising poultry in both farms and urban backyards is sweeping the nation and providing chicken owners with healthier meat and eggs, homegrown food and fun pets. “Farm families have known the joys of raising their own poultry for years, but people everywhere are beginning to realize the many benefits of raising poultry, even if it’s right in their backyards,” Daniel Adams of Ashland Feed Store said. “We are excited to help families get started with their own flocks, so

they too can participate in the chicken raising trend.” Throughout the duration of Chick Days, Ashland Feed Store will have experts available to offer advice and guidance on how to raise chickens from freshly hatched chicks through laying, including details on proper nutrition to provide the best eggs.

Titan-ic comeback slams Confederates Seventh inning grand slam by Lowery pulls out 6-5 win for Cosby By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com There was no doubt that the LeeDavis baseball team had Cosby backed up against the wall on Thursday night. Entering the top of the seventh, the Titans trailed 4-2 and had nearly exhausted their entire pitching rotation in an effort to combat the Confederates’ steady offensive attack. Cosby went through five hurlers, including three in the sixth inning alone. But then again pitching wouldn’t matter if the Titans couldn’t get to the bottom of the seventh, which did not seem likely. With Lee-Davis pitcher Jordan Boze throwing in relief, Cosby had generated virtually no offense since he stepped to the mound in the fourth. Over three innings of brilliant work,

Boze notched seven strikeouts versus one single on a toss-up call at first. But in the top of the seventh Boze hit the wall that Cosby was backed up against, looking shaky from the start. Titan Kyle McKay led things off with a belt that looked to be a homer but was caught by Lee-Davis’ Brandon Angus just short of the centerfield fence. Boze then walked Christian Hamlett on four pitches but found a hint of relief when Cosby’s Ben Sisk’s line drive to short was swallowed up by Billy Steel, putting the Titans one out from ending their night. But the evening was far from over. Boze then walked Christian Beyer and the pressure mounted as he also walked Travis McQueen to load the bases, see SLAM, pg. 41 ` Charlie Leffler

Yellow Jackets starting to roll behind hot bats Jeb Weymouth weighing in as a freshman By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com On Sunday afternoon, the Randolph-Macon baseball team ran past visiting Emory & Henry in double-header action, taking the pair games 8-1 and 10-1. After enduring a disappointing 2-7 stretch shortly after the season began, the Yellow Jackets are now starting to hit their stride, wining five of their last six games to improve to 10-9 overall and sit in second place with a 7-3 Old Dominion Conference record. With only 12 games left on their regular season schedule, R-MC has gone on an offensive roll, outscoring their opponents 60-19 over their last four games. “It started off kind of rough but I think we finally got it figured out,” said sophomore cen-

bringing slugger Luke Lowery, son of Cosby head coach Tim Lowery, to the plate. Boze looked as if he recovered by getting two quick strikes on Lowery but the Titans’ batter worked the count full. Then on a 3-2 pitch, Lowery blasted a shot over the right-center fence for a grand slam and a 6-5 Cosby lead. Lee-Davis head coach Kenny Lewis could do little shake his head after the game. “You know Cosby’s going to fight until the end and they did,” he said. “That’s kind of a cool story because it’s the coach’s son who hits the grand slam. It’s one of those storybook things.” But Lee-Davis was not going

terfielder Brian Jordan. “We’re on a little bit of a roll right now. I think we’ll be in pretty good shape.” For the Yellow Jackets it was a matter of getting both young and old talent in sync with one another. “We’re playing good right now,” said senior pitcher Kyle Hicks. “Our freshmen are really coming together now.” Even more surprising is the fact that they continue to improve despite losing junior third baseman Greg Mitro and senior short stop Adam Carpenter to injury. To compound matters, Jordan has been unable to pitch in relief. But the losses have actually created a since of unity within the team. “Now even with Adam hurt and Mitro hurt and BJ (Jordan) not being able to pitch I think we’re coming together really good,” Hicks said. “When we get all of three them back we ought to right.” One of the young players who has become a important piece in the Yellow Jackets’ suc-

cess is former Hanover Hawk Jeb Weymouth. As a freshman, Weymouth is one of only three players to have started every game and is currently the team’ sixth leading batter. So far Weymouth is batting .366 with a .500 slugging percentage on one home run and 13 RBI. Weymouth has been no slouch playing right field either, with 22 putouts, one assist and no errors for a 1.000 fielding percentage. Even Weymouth is surprised with how well he is playing. “I was planning on having a big impact but this is bigger than I thought,” he said. “I’m playing a whole lot better than I thought I would.” Weymouth’s successful adjustment to college baseball stems from having fun and being surrounded by so many players that he has grown up with. “Being competitive is definitely a key point but having fun while you’re playing also a key point too,” he said. “I grew up with a lot of these boys so if we’re not playing baseball we’re

hunting or fishing or doing something together. So it’s kind of like family.” As a senior, Hicks has seen his share of young players

to suffer their first loss of the season without a fight. With the Titans’ fifth pitcher of the game, Michael Carpenter on the mound, C-fed Hank Parsley dropped a shot to right for a single. But Parsley pushed the advantage and got caught on a pickoff at first. Will Connerley then singled through the gap and stole second to get into position to tie the game. Next up, Boze came to the plate with a chance to redeem himself and sent a Carpenter pitch deep into right. However, the ball hung up for the inning’s second out. But the C-feds kept battling when Billy Steel gapped a shot at short to put runners on first and third for Lee-Davis. It appeared the Confederates

would at least tie the game when Michael Kluver sent a fly to short left, but Cosby’s Beyer raced in to make a diving catch to end the game. Lewis had no doubts that Boze would bounce back from the disappointing loss. “He obviously kind of hit a wall there and that’s something we’re going to look in to,” Lewis said. “Here again he’s one of our horses so we’re going to have to ride him. He knows that and I’m certain Jordan’s bothered by his performance, both Prince George and here tonight. But he showed signs of brilliance. He’s been playing basketball all winter and I think he’s got some get-used-to to get done. But I don’t doubt Boze-y for a second. He’ll be there. He’ll be fine.” The dramatic game saw Lee-

Davis jump on Titans’ pitcher Ben Sisk in the bottom of the second when Michael Thomas hopped a shot up the middle to plate Steel. A single past second from Jacob Perks put two on for the C-feds then designated hitter Cory Thacker drilled a three run shot over right for a 4-0 Lee-Davis lead. “He’s the DH,” Lewis said. “He’s not the designated looker. He’s here to swing the bat. He’s a big, strong kid and he can do that.” Cosby answered in the top of the fourth with back-to-back homers when Sisk led off by taking Kluver’s first pitch and sending it out of the park in right center. Next up Beyer sent one out of the park in the same spot, which ironically enough was where Lowery and Thacker

also hit their runs. In playing only their second game of the year due to weather, Lewis looked at the contest as an opportunity to learn. “We were certainly in position to finish it off and we just didn’t,” he said. “But that’s certainly a good lesson early in the year; that you’ve got to play seven. They certainly played seven. We’ll learn from it. We’ll be better from it.” Likewise, though the Cosby escaped with the win, Coach Lowery felt his Titans learned something from playing LeeDavis. “I think we need to learn some base-running, a little technique on things,” he said. “Obviously getting some quality at-bats against some quality pitchers. They had two outstanding pitchers and the third kid was no slouch as well. That

Freshman Jeb Weymouth has made a huge impact in his first year at Randolph-Macon. Weymouth is currently the team’s sixth leading hitter at .366 with a .500 slugging percentage. The former Hanover Hawk also has a 1.000 fielding percentage in right field with 22 putouts and no errors.

makes us better by seeing quality. “Lee-Davis has always got a quality team they put on the field and feel like we do to,” he added. “It’s a team of the Top 10 and we were just battling in there and somebody was going to win and somebody was going to lose. We just happened to be fortunate enough to come out on top.” Cosby…................000 200 4— 6 8 0 Lee-Davis............040 001 0— 5 8 4 Sisk, Birnbaum (5), Diesel (6), Holt (6), Carpenter (6) and Lowery; Kluver, Boze (4), Thomas (7) and Connerley.

PH chemistry releases a 5-1 win over Atlee Patriots move to 3-0 on season By JP Beauchamp sports@mechlocal.com Some might say the Patrick Henry boys soccer team made good use of their home field advantage when they hosted Atlee last Wednesday, but by the time everything was said and done, the game was nothing short of a blow-out. Although Atlee began by taking a strong command of the field, the Raiders couldn’t capitalize on an early break-out toward the goal and paid for it as the game went on. “It started off with them owning the match” said Patriots’ head coach, Daniel McGraw “Our opponent should have scored off the first kick-off where they had a beautiful opportunity. Luckily our defense followed it. They cleaned it out.”

As a result, the slow offensive start by Atlee allowed Patrick Henry to get into their flow. “We weren’t able to possess as much in the start; but when we settled down, calmed down, we were able to pass the ball, move the ball a little bit better; and really, switching of the play,” McGraw said. “Many, many times, Britton [Cocke], Karl [Braun]; my center men; they got to the ball, made an attempt to go one direction, turned their back switching the field, and that really caught our opponent off-guard, I think.” Patriot defenders recovered and Atlee lost momentum nine minutes in when senior middy Brad Rodgers scored across the middle from 10 meters to catch the right corner. Rodgers was able to capitalize from a blocked shot taken from senior midfielder and Patriots captain Britton Cocke. From that point the Raiders tried to play catchup, but the wily PH defense

According to Cocke, team play gave the Patriots an edge. “We really just worked together and never stopped fighting for each other,” he said. “We work as a team really well…the best we’ve had in a while. We have good chemistry. Our goalie, he’s been key point. Our center back, Joe Cofer; he’s been on point. It’s just a team effort really. Everyone has been doing really, really well. Even our people that come off the bench—everyone.” For Atlee head coach Steve Thompson, the game was a little rough. “We started pretty strong, possessed okay,” he said. “But then we got away from that. Got into a physical match, and we kind of went into a shell. So, we need to go back and Charlie Leffler work on that.” Late in the first period, Atlee senior keeper Michael McCabe, left, slides in to block a shot from see SOCCER, pg. 43 `

Patrick Henry senior midfielder Doug Cofer (4). However, the Patriots’ mixed things up in the second half to befuddle the Raiders’ defense and roll to a 5-1 win.

Patriots’ softball beats Atlee, rolls to 4-0 By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com It’s still early in the softball season but so far the surprise team in the Central Region is the Patrick Henry Patriots. On Thursday the Patriots moved to 4-0 with a 5-0 win over Douglas Freeman to follow up a 40 win over visiting Atlee the night before. And on the surprise team, the biggest surprise has come from the performance of first year pitcher, Emma Mitchell; a sophomore that has shown both talent and poise on the mound. Against the Raiders, Mitchell struck out 13 batters, but more impressively, Charlie Leffler

Atlee’s Alexa Crump (9) gets caught in a rundown between Patrick Henry’s Shanley O’Day (18) and Kacie Melton (3). Crump escaped the tag, but the Raiders fell to PH 4-0.

through three games she has given up very few walks. “Emma Mitchell on the mound has done a spectacular job,” said Patriots’ head coach Matt Crowder. “I think she’s walked two or three batters all year. Thirteen strikeouts, she’s done a great job.” Atlee head coach John Early agreed. “Their pitcher did a great job on us. We weren’t adjusting to the outside pitch.” Mitchell’s poise was evident early when Atlee lead-off batter, freshman Taylor Sutherland lined a shot into right for a double. But the young pitcher was not phased by the early offensive attack, getting three straight outs. “Emma’s, she’s as cool as she can be,” Crowder said. “She’s real quiet. She never gets rattled it seems. She’s just a real quiet kid. “Even if she gives up a hit or walks

somebody, which doesn’t happen often, she just goes back to work. Just a hard worker.” Most surprising of all for Crowder is that Mitchell was not even projected as the starting pitcher coming into the season. Instead the coach planned to primarily use sophomore Sam Moore. “Really (Mitchell) was a big surprise for me this year,” Crowder said. “I really thought Sam was going to handle most of our innings this year but Emma came along, we pitched her in the scrimmage and she just did a great job of hitting spots and I said we’re a much better team with Sam at short and Emma on the mound. But Atlee was not without its own impressive pitcher on the mound. Freshman Jessica Holte turned in a solid performance with few lapses. Holte started off with a strikeout of see SOFTBALL, pg. 43 `

Allie West followed by two quick outs from the succeeding batters. “She’ll be good,” Earley said. “She’s just learning where to pitch and what pitches to throw. So when she throws a bad one she’s leaving it in a great spot for the hitters to hit and they’re taking advantage of it right now. But she’ll get better. She’s already made some improvements since the beginning of the season. We can already see some small improvements every day. Hopefully once we get into district play and that she’ll be where she wants to be.” In the second Patrick Henry struck on offense and defense. Mitchell struck out the side and it appeared Holte would do the same for Atlee, getting K’s on the first two batters. But PH’s strong sophomore class went to work. Anna Hogue drilled a double shot to center then came home when Kendalle Weaver tripled to right. Next up, Katie Woody punched a shot to right, plating Weaver for a 2-0 lead. “They just hit the ball hard,” Earley said of the Patriot batters. “There was maybe one of them we’d be able to get to. They put it where we weren’t and that’s the name of the game.” The score remained the same until the fourth when Mitchell gave up her lone walk of the game, but equaled the equation by striking out the other three Atlee batters.

former Hanover County players who stepped to the forefront. It was Weymouth’s sacrifice in the bottom of the third that drove in Jordan to give the Jackets a 2-0 lead. Then in the bottom of the sixth, the R-MC offense exploded for six runs. A single from Jordan Walton (Lee-Davis)

With two out in the bottom of the fourth, PH sophomore Kacie Melton stood on third after getting a triple to right. Weaver picked up her second hit of the game on a double to right center driving in Melton. Then Woody drove in Weaver on a single to center for a 4-0 Patriot lead, creating the final score. As scary as it may sound to future opponents, the Patriots continue to win despite not getting the best from the strongest part of their batting order. “Tonight, the middle part of our order really struggled.” Crowder said. “We had one hit at the five spot, three and four were shut out. But the bottom of the order did absolutely great, going against what she was pitching. She (Holte) was pitching outside and they were hitting the ball to right just like you ask them to do. A good team effort today. “There are not easy outs in our lineup really,” Crowder added. “Luckily tonight the bottom part of the order really came through.” Despite suffering their third loss in four games, Earley said his young Raiders continue to make strides, which he pointed out to his players after the game. “I told them when we were out there, we lost, you’ve got to learn from it,” he said. “If you learn from it, it’s not a loss. But if you don’t make the adjustments then you didn’t learn anything. We’re expecting better things. We’re young. We’re making little

steps every game. It’s going to be a tough adjustment for some of them. “We’ve got two seniors starting the rest are three freshmen, a couple of sophomores,” Earley said. “So we’re predominantly young. We’re learning. Some days the freshmen play like freshmen and some days they play bigger than what they are. We’re hoping like the middle of the season they’ll be playing like sophomores and juniors.” On Thursday, Atlee bounced back to defeat Hermitage 2-1.

Atlee managed to even the score with three-and-ahalf minutes left in the first when senior forward Jordan Boothe chipped in a shot from congestion 18 meters out. With seconds remaining in the first period, the Patriots retaliated with a hard shot-ongoal which the Raiders’ senior keeper Michael McCabe successfully repelled. But as the second period began, PH asserted their lead two and a half minutes in from a Karl Braun header set up by Cocke. “Getting those big switches allowed the middle to open up and luckily we got a few shots in,” McGraw said.

along with walks of Weymouth and Jay Lichter loaded the bags. When Cory Jackson (Patrick Henry) was hit by a pitch it drove in Walton. Weymouth scored on a pass ball and a James Bierlein double drove in Lichter and Jackson for a 6-0 lead. Jordan’s RBI single drove in Bierlein and a Kevin Davis (Hanover) double down the right field line made the score

8-0. In the second game, R-MC scored three runs on three hits in the first inning and continued to roll. In the game Davis went 4-for-5 with an RBI. Former Hanover pitcher, freshman Justin Thorn closed out the game with two and a third scoreless innings, striking out two. Despite enduring the losing streak, Weymouth said

the team knew its potential. “I think, we had that little loss/ slump thing we had but I think the whole team knew what we were capable of and nobody got down,” he said. Likewise, Jordan believes the key to R-MC’s sudden success has simply been a matter of gaining confidence. “We have the talent to beat anyone in our league or anyone in any other league,” he said. “We’ve got to

R-MC’s Ariail named DIII News Player of the Year From press release BEAVERTON, Ore. — Randolph-Macon College senior Molly Ariail has been named the 2010 Women’s DIII News Player of the Year, the publication announced last week in its April issue. Ariail led the Yellow Jackets to an 18-7 record. She topped the Old Dominion Athletic Conference in both scoring (19.4) and rebounding (11.4) and compiled 14 double-doubles this season. She also earned Player of the Year honors in the conference for the third straight season. “If you look at her stats, Molly dominated both ends of the floor with her play and

capped her career as one of the best to play in the South,” said WDIIIN editor Gary Rubin. “There were many outstanding candidates for this award, but her performance all season long showed she is the most Beset with a persistent and changeable PH defense, (not to mention, some great saves by PH senior keeper Michael Graf) the Raiders were denied any more net time. Continuing to switch up on the baffled Raiders the Pats proved too much for the gunshy Raiders with scores from senior mid Doug Kofer from 20 meters and a Cocke assist; a long goal from junior forward Robert Torrence from 25 meters; and finally a short center field shot from Cocke assisted by junior mid Sean Kellogg. For Thompson, most of the elements were there for the Raiders, but at least one was lacking. “We possessed the ball well,” he said. “We swung it around the back and got into

WDIIIN has named a Player of the Year every season since 1994. Women’s DIII News, founded in 1993, is the leading publication covering Division III basketball.

It’s just that last touch; that last touch to get us going forward; or the finishing touch when we get in…that was not there tonight. [The boys] seemed a little cautious for reasons unknown. I don’t know why. We’ve played two strong teams to this point. Patrick Henry being the third. We had (Mills E.) Godwin on Friday and Lee-Davis on Tuesday, so the season has not been a cupcake going in. They were all strong games going in, so hopefully that will set us up for Districts.” Atlee ...................................... 1 0—1 Patrick Henry........................ 1 4—5 PH: D.

know that we can beat anybody on any given day.” Something that bodes well for the rest of the season. “I think we’re doing very well,” Weymouth said. “The pitchers are throwing strikes and the hitters are hitting it. Everything’s starting to fall into place.”
