160-unit residential development OK’d By Jim Ridolphi For The Mechanicsville Local

Hanover K-9 dog handlers were recognized at last Wednesday’s meeting of the Hanover County Board of Supervisors for their contribution to the county’s rescue services. They are, from left, Nathan Elswick, Brian Parrish, Ed Martin, supervisors chairman G. Ed Via III and trainer emeritus Garland Gilman.

Aubrey M. “Bucky” Stanley, who represents the Beaverdam District on the Hanover County Board of Supervisors, described a proposed 160-unit residential development off Route 54 near Ashland as “a real good plan” when he moved for approval at

last Wednesday’s meeting. HHHunt sought the rezoning of 63 acres located on the east of Woodside Lane and where it intersects with State Route 54. Stanley said he spoke with Dan Schmitt of HHHunt after a previous project for the site did not pan out. He said Hunt has an established record in the

county with premiere developments like Rutland on their resume. The conceptual plan calls for the development of 160 residential units at a density of 2.54 dwellings per acre. Houses would range in size from 1,700 to 3,000 square feet. The propsee 160-UNIT, pg. 7

Staff Report news@mechlocal.com Four area firefighting associations are taking issues with cuts to Hanover County Fire/ EMS in the proposed 2013 Fiscal Year budget. “We’ve been dealing with cuts for the last four years, and, finally, the proposed cuts crossed the line. They dealt with some of our core values,” Fire/ EMS Chief Fred Crosby said last week. “The core values I’m referring to are we now have two personnel on a truck to answer a call in certain parts of the county, and fire equipment

McCann graduates with Marine Platoon 2017 Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com A new Marine from Mechanicsville, Pvt. Aaron M. McCann, graduated on March 2 with Platoon 2017 and five other platoons of H Company in the 2nd Recruit Training Battalion at Marine Corps Recruit Depot at Parris Island, S.C. The 13-week-long training regimen emphasizes the core values Duty, Honor and Commitment. Aaron is the youngest son of Mike and Carol McCann from the Quail Creek neighborhood in Mechanicsville. A 2011 graduate of Atlee High School, Aaron turned 18 during the Crucible. That brutal final exam lasts a continuous 54 hours (from 2 a.m. [Thursday] until 8 a.m. [Saturday, before graduation]). His 60-plus-man platoon got little sleep or food during the ordeal, which included warrior stations and long night marches — the last one 15 kilometers with full gear, rifles and backpacks. They traveled 48 miles on foot between 36 different stations, including 29 problemsolving exercises. McCANN Sleep deprivation and hunger added to the fatigue of being required to carry 45 pounds during the Crucible, in addition to the weight of 782 gear, uniform and M16 A2 service rifle. At the successful completion of the Crucible, the 450 recruits of H Company gathered around an Iwo Jima memorial next to the Peatross Parade Deck and received their Eagle, Globe and Anchor emblem during the Emblem Ceremony. (The emblem symbolizes the Marines’ ability to fight in the air, on land and in the sea.) They were no longer called recruits. Now they “are proud to claim the title of United States Marine” (Marine Hymn). Aaron’s journey to become a Marine began when he decided with the help of his recruiter, Sgt. Carr at the Bell Creek Road Recruiting

Center, and his parents’ permission (since he was not yet 18) to join the delayed entry program. After taking a written test, he went to Fort Lee for a thorough medical examination where he also was sworn into the U.S. Marine Corps. Now referred to as a poolee, Aaron met at least once a week with his fellow poolees and recruiter for PT (Physical Training). Knowing what minimum standards of physical conditioning were required for entry to a Marine recruit training platoon, Aaron worked diligently to surpass those standards so that when he was called to go he was ready. Leaving his family and friends behind, he boarded a bus the first week in December at Fort Lee bound for Parris Island. The “island” by the sea with Spanish moss hanging from ancient trees is not far from Hilton Head, but the “amenities” could not have been more different. Instead of wakeup calls that you asked for and decided to answer, or not, they got lights on at 4 a.m. and countdowns to be on line in “five-four-threetwo-. . .” Instead of privacy with loved ones, they got metal bunks in a “squad bay” with 60 to 80 strangers, open showers, toilet stalls without doors and constant instructions via spit showers from foul-breathed drill instructors that they loved to hate. (Aaron said he is now glad to have had one of the toughest, Ssgt. Levar Woods, someone he will never forget). Aaron has now traded his Parris Island retreat for infantry training at Camp Geiger, near Camp Lejeune, N.C.

After interviewing witnesses and collecting evidence at the scene, the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office said Wednesday’s sighting of a gunman near three Mechanicsville schools was most likely someone firing a CO2 powered pellet rifle at plastic bottles hanging from a tree. “While the evidence strongly suggests this scenario,� Sgt. Chris Whitley said, “the Sheriff ’s Office would like to encourage the individual who was in this area today [Wednesday, March 28] to contact the Sheriff ’s Office immediately at 365-6110 in an effort to resolve this matter and put the community’s concerns to rest.� At 12:34 p.m. Wednesday, the Sheriff ’s Office received a call about “a possible weapons violation on the property of the Atlee Recreation Center involving a white male possibly driving a white car with a weapon pointed in the direction of Atlee Station Road. While en route, our officers called ahead to school resource officers to alert them. It was in relatively close proximity to the schools.� The man was seen at the Atlee Recreation

Center, which is located near Atlee High School, Chickahominy Middle School and Cool Spring Elementary School. “While the evidence in this case indicates that no students or other citizens were ever in any danger,� Whitley added, “the Sheriff ’s Office would like to extend its appreciation to the citizen who took the initiative to contact the Sheriff ’s Office regarding this incident.� “Without question, the Sheriff ’s Office would encourage anyone who observes this or any other suspicious activity to report it immediately so an appropriate law enforcement response can be provided,� he said. “In the meantime,� he continued, “the Sheriff ’s Office would like to reassure Hanover County students, parents, school personnel and residents that we will continue to maintain a strong presence in and around all of our schools so as to ensure their safety and security.� Deputies arrived at the schools at 12:37 p.m. While en route, school resource officers were contacted as was the administration of Hanover County Public Schools.

Tonight’s the night to offer budget comments This is one of those days when one would find it difficult to envy holding a seat on the Hanover County Board of Supervisors. To the seven who do serve, we do not envy your position, but we are confident you will lead our county in these trying economic times. County administrator Cecil R. “Rhu” Harris Jr. and his staff have spent countless hours crunching numbers to keep what we consider Virginia’s finest county (yes, we’re biased — it’s our home) operating on a secure and stable path. And when it comes to the numbers, Harris knows of what he speaks: He is a certified public accountant. We are fortunate to have him in the position of county administrator. As a side note, we recently heard from a very reliable source that he was being wooed by other jurisdictions. The news, while alarming, comes as no surprise. He has proven his worth many times in leading the day-to-day operations of Hanover County. But, as for tonight and the 7 p.m. public hearing being conducted by the supervisors, this is your chance to address the 2013 Fiscal Year budget. Whatever your thoughts or opinions, this is the time to step up and speak. Keep in mind funding isn’t a bottomless source. We have to be realistic in our expectations and demands. From this writer’s perspective, as was stated a few weeks ago, we must ensure public safety. We are confident the supervisors will act with “the greater good” in mind. What is paramount is our support for our county and its future. Yes, there may be some tough decisions coming, but those we have elected to serve in leadership roles will listen. So, take advantage of the opportunity to “speak your peace” about the budget proposal. The meeting will get underway at 7 p.m. today in the Board of Supervisors Meeting Room in the County Administration Building at the Government Complex in Hanover. And don’t forget, we’re in this together. Melody Kinser

Delegate helps by giving support to grant application In the world of Congressional gridlock, local politicians are still being helpful. Del. Chris Peace recently lent his support to a grant application by Quin Rivers Inc. on behalf of Hanover County to enhance transportation services for citizens with disabilities. The grant was funded by the Department of Rail and Public Transportation and provided a mobility manager to match the county’s needs for disability transportation with both existing service providers and by developing new resources. The next phase of the work has transferred to Richmond’s Senior Connections Inc. for the purpose of including Hanover in their regional disability transportation system. A pilot program is being developed to provide a onestop scheduling service as well as an array of funding mechanisms and volunteers to support the new service once it’s initiated.

ObamaCare and word count more than triple the Bible The original 2,471-page (425,116 words) ObamaCare law passed by Congress contained only the framework for ObamaCare. The “mandates” and “HHS guidelines” that are now emerging were still unwritten, with wide discretion granted to unelected Washington bureaucrats. ObamaCare regulations are estimated to contain 2,163,744 words compared to 425,116 words in the ObamaCare statute. Just how long is 2,163,744 words? By my count the King James Version of the Bible contains 830,314 words. That makes ObamaCare regulations two and a half as long as the Bible. If you add the text of the ObamaCare statutes to its regulations, they are together three times as long as the Bible. Runaway government? William Winfrey Mechanicsville

Private/public compensation In the March 14 edition of The Mechanicsville Local Janet Lawson, the personnel director for Hanover County, stated that “County employees had only received a 3 percent pay raise last year when people in the private sector had received 10 percent over the last few years.” Since Ms. Lawson wants to compare private sector compensation to public sector compensation, let’s do just that. Just one example, Fred Smith, chairman and founder of FedEx, recently announced all overtime was eliminated for hourly pilots and warehouse personnel, all (including Mr. Smith ) executives would immediately take a 25 percent pay cut, and the matching contribution of the companies 401(k) plan would be suspended until further notice – all just so FedEx could remain in business. The same page contains another department head, Kirk Baumbach, lamenting losing employees to higher-paying jobs with competing localities and businesses. Really? With real unemployment at closer to 11 percent than the 8.3 percent the media reports, just where, Mr. Baumbach, are these employees running off to? Taxpayers who fund government get tired of the “poormouthing” that goes on whenever local budgets face cuts. County Administrator Cecil R. “Rhu” Harris Jr. stated that 50 positions are being eliminated, mostly through attrition. If the positions could be eliminated this year, why not last year or the year before? People running government agencies should get a taste of the hard knock world of private business. Run your agency the way you would run it if it were your own business. It used to be when (25 to 30 years ago) you chose to work in government you accepted a lower wage and in return you had much more job security and better retiresee LETTERS, pg. 8

Caroline Cook suggested a 35 mph that should extend throughout the long curve west of the intersection. “That intersection is going to receive increased pressure until something is done to slow every one down,” she said. “The least that can be done now -- or the most that should be done now -- is to slow the speed limit down.” “I will lead the charge in trying to get that speed limit down,” Stanley said as he moved for approval of the rezoning, paving the way for the new development. The request did not receive the endorsement of the Planning Commission due to an issue regarding requirements for construction of left and right hand turn lanes.

After the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office did a security sweep and bomb-detecting K-9s checked the building, normal operations at the General District Court resumed Thursday morning following a bomb threat. Sgt. Chris R. Whitley said the call was received at 8:20 a.m. “It is not an unusual occurrence,” he said of the incident, with court-related issues involved. He also said Col. David

R. Hines, sheriff, and his officers “take very seriously” any threats. Just after 9 a.m., the building had been “investigated to the fullest extent.” At that time, deputies were waiting for the dogs to arrive.

Be glad you have a safe job, even with the 3 percent pay raise. I personally know a few families who would envy your good fortune. Bob Shannon King William see LETTERS, pg. 15

Ashland homes opening doors for Garden Week

S

hortly after the earthquake hit Louisa County on Aug. 23, 2011, it became evident that the beautiful and historic properties in Cuckoo that were slated to be on this year’s Historic Garden Week tour would not be in condition for tourists. Jane and Percy Wootton’s home and The Gilboa Church, two of the Cuckoo properties that were scheduled to be on this year’s Historic Garden Week tour, were badly damaged by the quake and are still undergoing recovery and restoration projects. From adversity and necessity, however, came innovation and invention. Members of The Ashland Garden Club rallied around and offered their own homes for this year’s Ashland area tour. Historic Garden Week in Ashland will feature six historic homes in the downtown Ashland area, none of which has been open for Historic Garden Week before. It will be walking tour format. This year, the tour will be presented from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 21. Tour visitors will be able

12

to park their cars at Henry Clay Elementary School on South James Street and take a leisurely walk through the neighborhood to visit the homes which are located on South Center, South James and Howard streets. 317 S. James St., the home of Ritchie and Sue Watson, was built over the foundation of the Victorian Burton Chapman home, which burned in 1970. It includes features of the former home, such as the fireplace mantel and the living room columns. The Watson home contains 18th and 19th century English and American furniture, as well as paintings and sculptures by local artists. Plaster castings of the original Parthenon Frieze grace the walls of the family room. The garden reflects many plants from friends, neighbors and noted garden author Nancy Ross Hugo. 318 S. James St., the home of Jim and Cecile Cox, is a twostory Greek revival home built in 1914. The home is replete with 10-foot ceilings, heart pine floors and seven fireplaces. Of special interest is the living room tea table, which

Historic Garden Week will put some of Ashland’s grandest homes on display this month. The tour will include, from left, top, 318 S. James St., and right, 110 Howard St. Below, from left, 400 S. James St. and 202 Howard St.

is a miniature of Cecile Cox’s family dining table made by her father. The bright and bold interior colors and fabrics complement the whimsical and playful art featured in the home. “Oakstone” at 400 S. James St., the home of Edmund and Katia DeJarnette, was built in 1887 in the popular Queen Ann style, and is surrounded by nearly five acres of land. The furnishings include original DeJarnette family and

French antiques. The home also includes art collected while the DeJarnettes traveled overseas with the U.S. State Department. The grounds reflect the late 19th century when Dr. Elliott DeJarnette kept his horses in the back pasture. 202 Howard St., the home of Eve and Bruce Torrence, was built in 1912. Extensive renovation to the home restored the three-story central staircase and the exposed brick chimney

in the kitchen. The original carved mantels in the living and dining rooms are described as being particularly lovely. Paintings by family and friends, as well as mathematical artwork by the mathematics professor owners, are featured throughout the home. 110 Howard St., the home of Lauren and Steve Thompson, was built in 1905 in the Neocolonial style. While many features of the home

have been renovated, original windows, doors, trim and flooring remain. The interior features an 18th century sideboard, an 1830s Ohio Valley corner cupboard and examples of Hepplewhite, Victorian and Empire pieces. The gardens feature a “hidden” garden room, which is encircled by Euonymus, Boxwood and Dogwood. 700 S. Center St., the home see GARDEN, pg. 15

There is a lot to dislike about this law for conservatives and liberals alike, but this claim is demonstrably false – the Act contains no such provision – and I wonder if The Local should be in the business of publishing incorrect information like this, even as a letter to the editor.

But even making this option open to seniors who wanted to plan their own care was dropped from the legislation after Sarah Palin made claims similar to Ms. Royer’s. And no version of the Act would ever have created “unelected and unaccountable panels of bureaucrats that would have the power to control “all matters of your health no matter how intimate.” Indeed, it would seem that it’s state legislatures like our

(Editor’s note: The following was written by Natalie Miller, a journalism student in Nick Liberante’s class at Patrick Henry High School.) Art appreciation continues to thrive in Ashland. The repurposed Firehouse Theater on Duncan Street has been showing movies for locals since December 2009. It will present its first production of live theater in May. Patrick Henry High School Class of 2007 graduate Louise Keeton has returned to Ashland to share her love of theater with the community. Keeton and her co-stars Amanda Williams and Andy Nester will be playing all of the characters in the production. Keeton and Williams collaborated to write the script and music for their original play, “Food Baby.” The show will be directed by Ashland resident Lorie Foley. “[Keeton and I] were just driving, and talking about how food plays such a huge role in everyone’s lives . . . at parties, there’s food; at weddings, there’s cake,” Williams said. “This idea just turned into a whole plot line for a show, and we just took off from there.” Williams, a graduate of Louisiana College, has a history of music and is writing all of the music for the performance. She has been acting professionally since graduating from Louisiana. “Food Baby” follows the life of three friends

Amanda Williams, Louise Keeton and Andy Nester will debut the live production of “Food Baby” at the Firehouse Theater in Ashland.

(Keeton, Williams and Nester) during their college years and beyond. The main character, Kate (Williams), must decide whether to continue an unfulfilling life or follow her dream to open a restaurant. “[‘Food Baby’ is] about all three of the characters, loving and being there for each other,” Keeton said. Each character portrays one of the three see FIREHOUSE, pg. 21 


42 county employees express interest in early retirement As the Hanover County Board of Supervisors continues working on the 2013 Fiscal Year budget, the early retirement program offered to employees has resulted in 42 approved applications -- and savings beyond the goal administrators established for the one-time offer. County administrator Cecil R. “Rhu” Harris Jr. said on March 23 that the program was calculated to save the county $1,372,000 based on reduction in staff, or $130,000 more than the projected $1,242,000, and the figure could go even higher. “We have 42 applications that have been approved,” Harris said. “We have other applications that came in after the Feb. 29 deadline that are being considered. It could be as many as five, but I’m aware of at least two.”

He said he didn’t know how many open positions the retirements would create in various departments. “Some of the positions will be filled, and some will remain vacant,” he said. “Depending on where we need people, we might move employees from one department to another, or we might hire someone. When we hire a new person, it will probably be at a lower pay grade.” Many of the retirements took place on April 1. Eighty county employees responded late last year to a survey about their interest in an early retirement program. “We had people who were interested that didn’t apply when the final offer was made,” Harris said. The program allows fulltime employees to end their employment between April 1

and Oct. 1 and receive a $13,000 incentive payable as cash, continued health insurance coverage through Sept. 30, 2013, or a combination of both. “The purpose of the program is to reduce our workforce through a positive program and minimize the potential for reduction in force,” Janet Lawson, the county’s director of human resources, told the supervisors at their Feb. 8 meeting. She also said that the option was developed to address funding challenges for the fiscal year beginning July 1. Employees who participate in the program are not required to retire, but they are not eligible to remain employed with the county in a benefiteligible position. They may be considered for re-employment two years from their separation date.

A grouping of women went to the tomb of Jesus, but found He was not there. So they reported this amazing surprise to Jesus’ closest followers. Luke 24:11 says, “But they did not believe the women, because their words seemed to them like nonsense.” This reminds me of National Enquirer headlines: “I Spent 2 Years In A Mars Prison.”

Volunteer Fire Chiefs Staff. They form the Hanover Fire/EMS Department and are asking citizens to respond by attending this evening’s public hearing on the budget proposal. The supervisors will take comments at 7 p.m. in their meeting room in the administration building at the government complex in Hanover. “I’m trying to make sure the information they are putting out is accurate,” Crosby added. “I have talked with county administrator (Cecil R.) Rhu Harris (Jr.) to make sure he is aware of what is going on and that we are hopefully all on the same page.” Assistant county administrator Jim Taylor, who oversees Fire/EMS, responded to the

association’s efforts by phone on March 26. “The Fire/EMS budget is actually up, but it is being absorbed by benefits increases and other increased costs,” he said. “We aren’t cutting staffing and are committed to continuing to provide for public safety.” Another area where cuts will be felt involves training volunteers. The training academy for

volunteers will be reduced to one this year. “We’ve had as many as three per year in the past, and, in recent years, it has been two,” Crosby said. “We can train 30 volunteers in each academy. We currently have about 450 active volunteers that answer calls and another 550 that serve in other

“Boy Has Tree Growing Out Of His Stomach.” “Elvis Spotted Leaving A Grand Rapids 7-11.” “Man Walks Out Of Tomb.” Unbelievable. Arthur Ramsey says, “No resurrection, no Christianity.” Without the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Bible is just a collection of good advice. Is there evidence that enables us to believe the women’s report? Yes. There is the proof of the empty tomb. First, you have the women and later Jesus’ disciples’ testimony. If the tomb was occupied, this would have been easily refuted. There is proof of other eye witnesses to a living Jesus. In I Corinthians 15:6, Paul said Jesus was seen by more than 500 people. Such proof would hold up in any court in the land. There is the proof of the transformed disciples. They were hiding out after Jesus was arrested! Shortly afterward they were publicly proclaiming He was alive. What would account for this sudden surge of courage unless they encountered the risen Lord? There is the proof of transformed lives today. Jesus is still changing lives today around the world. As the old hymn says, “You ask me how I know He lives, He lives within my heart.” Jesus changed my life and He will yours. Jesus is who He claimed to be, Lord and God. This demands something of us, choosing life or death. You have every reason to believe that a RISEN LORD will take up the rest of Your life, through death, by placing it fully upon Him!

Members of the Shady Grove United Methodist Church, led by their pastor, Jay Kelchner, traveled to the Holy Land in February. After a 12-hour flight, they spent eight days visiting many historical sites familiar to Christian believers. They began at the Sea of Galilee, traveled south to Nazareth and then to Caesarea on the Mediterranean Sea. To the south there were stops at the Mount of Olives, The Garden of Gethsemane and the Upper Room. They walked on the Via Dolorosa, or the Way of the Cross. On the last day of the trip they visited the Garden Tomb and saw the Rock of the Scull, which in Hebrew means Golgotha.

Leash laws in effect through June 30 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 law” 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 off

running off their owner’s property will be impounded. Impoundment fees are $25 for the first violation and an additional $10 for each subsequent violation within a 12month period, including a $5 per day boarding fee. 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 or not the same dog is involved.

If you see a dog running at large, call Hanover County Emergency Communications at 365-6140. Any dangerous animal can be reported by dialing 911 for immediate assistance, 24/7. For more information about Hanover County’s running atlarge laws, call Animal Control at 365-6485.

own General Assembly that wish to control intimate health care matters, but that’s another letter for another day. The Act has several effects on health care in the U.S., but rationing is not one of them. In the end, we will continue under this law to ration health care according to who has the money – anyone who can write the check will get all they want. For the rest of us, it simply: ❍ Tells insurance companies that they can no longer deny coverage to people because of preexisting conditions. So if I get a new job, they cannot exclude me from the employer provided policy because my child has autism or I have had a stroke. ❍ Makes sure insurance companies cannot tell customers who have paid premiums for years that they won’t cover treatment when they finally get sick. Those who worry that government bureaucrats might decide

who gets care and who doesn’t need to know that without this law, health insurance bureaucrats will do exactly that as they always have – even if you paid your premiums faithfully and on time for years. Remember the woman who was denied breast cancer treatment because they claimed she didn’t disclose her acne ten years earlier? ❍ Ensures that insurance companies use at least 80% of premiums paid by customers to cover health care customers need rather than “administrative costs” and executive bonuses. ❍ Creates exchanges at the state level so that people who do not get coverage from their employers, Medicare, or the military – small business owners and entrepreneurs, for example – can pool risk and get affordable coverage. Large corporations get reduced insurance rates because a lot of employees pay in without getting sick, and this pays for those who do. Individuals must pay for their own risk and this can

get expensive. The exchanges resemble large corporations or other organizations like AARP that bring together large groups of people. Yes, the Affordable Care Act also requires that everyone purchase health care insurance or pay a penalty. Since we will all eventually need health care of some kind as we grow older, this really only means that everyone must show that they can pay for their own care when the time comes. Millionaires and others who wish to self-insure may simply pay the penalty, which is really just a mechanism for demonstrating the capability of doing so. It’s a choice, not a mandate. Health care is indeed a tough nut to crack, since the market for care is not exactly an open one. After all, I don’t get to shop for emergency health care as I would for a new car by taking weeks to evaluate the pros and cons of each model and the associated costs – when I need a heart surgeon, the clos-

est available one will have to do, whether or not he or she is the best value for my money. Moreover, social norms about the value of life won’t permit us to deny care to those who need it but cannot immediately write the check, but someone, somewhere has to cover this cost. The Affordable Care Act is a mechanism – albeit an imperfect one – for making sure that we each cover these costs as best we can. It does this by asking for payment up front, in the form of health care insurance. It does not do this with death panels that deny coverage or treatment. Claiming that it does is factually incorrect, and The Local should ensure that its readers know this. R. Stanton Scott Mechanicsville

Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com Hanover Green Veterinary Clinic launched a 24-hour weekend emergency service on Sept. 16, 2011. Located behind the Mechanicsville Post Office in the village, Linda Croft said it is the first of its kind in this area. Croft also said the emergency service is designed to provide immediate medical care to the pets of Mechanicsville and surrounding communities. The emergency service is staffed by David Boyd, DVM, and Miranda Bertram, DVM, medical support and management staff, operating on a 24hour basis starting at 7 p.m. Friday through 8 a.m. Monday to include 24-hour holidays.

No appointment is necessary, but calling ahead is helpful. The clinic treats a wide variety of pets, including dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, mice, rats, reptiles, snakes, pocket pets and exotics. “To date,” Croft said, the service “has provided emergency treatment for approximately 250 patients from more than 25 animal clinics and hospitals in this area. Owners have expressed their appreciation for an emergency

service that is close by, easily accessible and very affordable.” She said other positive comments include “This service is long overdue,” “Having you here for emergencies is a Godsend,” “Mechanicsville and this area is so in need of a service like this,” “Thank you, thank you for being here.” Croft said the clinic also strives to work in conjunction with the patient’s regular veterinarian by following-up in writing and phone calls regarding the patient’s emergency visit and treatment. “With the same desire that has served Mechanicsville pets for 35 years,” Croft said Hanover Green’s hope is that its emergency service will continue to grow, thrive and be available for pet emergencies in the future.

K-9 Veterans Day proclaimed New ministry offering free gourmet coffee on Good Friday The Mechanicsville Church of Christ has started a new coffee ministry called the “Upper Room Café.” According to Steven P. Dalton, church leaders “committed themselves to creating the ‘Upper Room Café’ as part of the church’s vision statement to: Love God, Love People and Impact the World for Future Generations.” Dalton, who is overseeing the coffee ministry, said, “Something about a coffee house invites people to sit and talk about the issues of the day, whether it’s the morning sports news, politics or even religion. A good cup of coffee is something that people can enjoy regardless of their background.” With the help of many church members, Dalton said he oversaw the remodeling of a room in the church building to provide a comfortable, unassuming location for church members and visitors to enjoy freshly brewed coffee from “Land of a Thousand Hills,” a coffee roaster in Roswell, Ga. “Land of a Thousand Hills” was founded by Jonathan D. Golden in response to the hardships caused by genocide in Rwanda. He said he saw a tangible way to impact the lives of coffee farmers by working with them. Golden said, “Every once in a while God

gives us something big to do, but every day he gives us something small to do. Those small things make a difference. Today’s generation wants to see the body of Christ act like the body of Christ. By drinking Land of a Thousand Hills Coffee, you are forging a relationship with a farmer. You are being God’s hands and feet saying ‘you’re worth being paid a living wage; you’re worth us blessing you . . . thank you.” A portion of proceeds received by “Land of a Thousand Hills” goes to the nonprofit “Do Good Initiative,” which directly supports the farming communities in Rwanda, Haiti and Thailand. To celebrate the new coffee ministry, the Mechanicsville Church of Christ, located at 8067 Atlee Road in Mechanicsville, invites the public to visit the “Upper Room Café” from 7 to 10 a.m. on Friday, April 6. Church staff and church leadership will be serving free cups of “Land of a Thousand Hills” coffee to all visitors. The “Upper Room Café” will officially open on Easter Sunday, April 8. For more information about the Mechanicsville Church of Christ and its ministries, visit www.mccforchrist.org.

The Hanover County Board of Supervisors recently unanimously approved a proclamation designating March 13 as K-9 Veterans Day. This date coincides with the date of the formation of the original K9 Corps when, on March 13, 1942, Secretary of War Robert P. Patterson signed a letter that authorized the quartermaster general to officially induct dogs into the war effort. Now, March 13 of every year in Hanover County has been set aside for the citizens to celebrate and honor the service of K-9 heroes of the past and the present. The official proclamation

Cross Bros. celebrating 100 years

H VC

Family-owned Ashland business kicks off 5-week observance with flash mob Cross Bros. Grocery, the oldest family-owned business in Ashland, established in 1912, launched a five-week 100th birthday celebration on Friday with a flash mob of family, friends, politicians and shoppers who sang and danced throughout the store. Sponsored by the Ashland Main Street Association and the Ashland Museum, the celebra-

Jamie Flanagan. For the finale, the crowd joined hands and swayed back and forth like the Whos in Whoville to “Ashland, Ashland,” led by Charles Waldrop with Fred Horn on the keyboard. Sue Watson and Lorie Foley, who produce the Ashland Music Variety Show, coordinated the talent and entertainment. During the merriment, shoppers waited in line, sometimes five deep, at the two

Tom’s daughter Cathy and his son David and their spouses, Charles Waldrop and Brenda Willis, became co-owners. Established by Herbert and Walter Cross, Cross Bros. has always operated out of the twostory brick store that faces the railroad tracks. Although some things have changed – the original building has been expanded four times, and Tom never dreamed that one day people would buy water – many things have remained the same. Tom still works 60 hours a

week, and the store continues to feature a custom butcher shop. The family still delivers groceries, prepares home-cooked meals, and runs tabs for longtime customers. They accept charge cards, but they don’t use computers. If regular customers don’t come on their usual shopping day, the family will call them to find out if they’re okay. Tom said they also will put groceries away for homebound

tion started with a Facebookdriven mob that began arriving at the store at 107 S. Railroad Ave. around 4:30 p.m. to shop, mingle, sing and dance. Within an hour, about a hundred people filled the store and began clapping and singing “Celebration,” led by Hanover Idol Patrick Warren. Impromptu conga lines snaked through the store and four generations of family and well-wishers squeezed into aisles and lined up along the produce bins to watch and participate. That was followed by “We are Family,” led by local singers Lenora Davis, Elizabeth Melson, Deborah Shannon and

checkout counters to buy their groceries. Speaking to the crowd, Woody Tucker, a long-time Cross Bros. shopper, said, “If you haven’t spent a lifetime shopping at Cross Bros., this is a great time to start. … The focus of everything they do is customer service.” “This is great,” said store owner Tom Willis, who began working at the store in 1954 as an assistant manager when he was 24. In 1973, when the Crosses retired, Willis and his wife Catherine partnered with Ruth Cross Hawthorne and her husband Bill to purchase the store. After Hawthorne died,

Undefeated Patriots keep streak Atlee downs Hanover in boys, alive with 2-0 win over Atlee girls lacrosse By Dave Lawrence For The Mechanicsville Local

Jim Ridolphi for The Local

Senior catcher Madison Gillman at the plate in the sixth inning of last week’s game. The Patriots scored two runs in the final inning to take a hardfought 2-0 decision from the Raiders.

By Arthur Utley For The Mechanicsville Local Ten years ago the Atlee Raiders became the first of the four Hanover County high schools to win the Virginia High School League Group AAA state softball championship. Hanover High captured the title in the 2006, and Lee-

Davis is the defending champion. That leaves Patrick Henry on the outside for now, but the Patriots have the look of a team capable of hoisting the championship trophy in early June. Patrick Henry, ranked No. 1 in The Richmond TimesDispatch Top 10, is 8-0 after defeating fourth-ranked Atlee

2-0 Thursday afternoon at Patrick Henry. The Patriots, featuring the most experienced lineup top to bottom in the Central Region, have beaten LeeDavis, have scored lots of runs and allowed just one. “For the veteran kids, this is their last chance. That’s the motivational factor for those kids,” Patrick Henry coach

Matthew Crowder said. The victory over LeeDavis came against a freshman pitcher who has replaced injured star Kelly Heinz. The Pats’ win Thursday came against left-hander Jessica Holte, one of the region’s best pitchers. Holte kept Patrick Henry’s see SOFTBALL, pg. 38 `

Atlee High School’s Cole Sydnor was unable to attend his teammates’ lacrosse game against visiting Hanover High School Friday night, but his thoughts were with his team. The junior, who was paralyzed from the chest down last summer after a diving accident on the James River, had been hospitalized at VCU Medical Center earlier in the week. But the 16-year-old, who serves as a coach and captain for the team, had a message for his fellow Raiders. “If you lose tonight, you have two miles to run tomorrow.” The Raiders took it to heart, jumping out to a 4-1 lead over the Hawks in the first quarter and coasting to a 7-4 win. It was a good end to a good night for all. The boys avoided the run, Atlee’s girls defeated Hanover 19-7 earlier that night, and proceeds from both games were donated to the Cole Sydnor Fund to help pay for the teen’s medical expenses. Ryne West, who led Atlee with two goals, said Sydnor’s spirit

inspired the Raiders. “Playing for one of our brothers – especially in the hospital so that he couldn’t come out tonight – I mean, he told us he’d give anything to come out tonight,” West said. “That right there, it motivated me and I guess it motivated the rest of the team.” Atlee coach Eric Hall called Sydnor a “master motivator.” As if Sydnor’s words weren’t motivation enough, playing Hanover also helped fire up the Raiders. “This is our rival,” West said. “This is really our first full game at the stadium that we got to play in front of – I don’t know how many people came out, but it was a ton … It was great. We were more pumped up than ever.” Hanover’s defense settled down after the first quarter, but Atlee picked up a goal in the second and third quarters to take a 6-1 lead. The Hawks were on the ropes -- but not defeated -- and nearly overtook the Raiders in the final quarter, scoring three goals before a dead-ball penalty in the final minute that sent their rally into a stall. “It’s hard coming out of that

Sadler on a roll and ready for Richmond Emporia native leading the way in Nationwide Series By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com At age 36, Emporia native Elliott Sadler is still relatively young but he has seen a lifetime of experiences in racing. As with any enduring professional athlete, the 17-year NASCAR veteran has seen both highs and lows and 2012 has given every indication it could be Sadler’s best. As a seven-year-old, Sadler got his start racing go-karts, hitting the tracks at what is now Capital City Speedway in Ashland. “I used to go there all the time,” he said. “It was Hanover at the time. It wasn’t called Capital City Speedway at the time, but I used to go there and Amelia growing up when I was like seven years old. That’s a long time ago. They used to have a lot of Virginia state races there so I’d go up there and race them then. Great race track. Won a few races there.” In all, Sadler

won over 200 go-kart races. By 1995, Sadler had risen to the NASCAR ranks, winning the Weekly Racing Series track championship at South Boston. In 1997 he entered his first full year of racing in the Nationwide Series and finished fifth in points. An eighth place

finish in 1998 gave him the opportunity to move on to the Sprint Cup on a full time basis. From 1999-2010 Sadler picked up three Sprint Cup Series wins, two of which came in the 2004 season when he finished a career best ninth in points. In 2005 Sadler came in

13th in points and averaged a 24th place finish in points over the other 10 years of his Sprint Cup career. A tumultuous 2010 ended with Sadler looking for other avenues for success and he found one by joining Kevin Harvick International in a full

Carpenter returns to hero’s welcome PSU, UNC hold exhibition match at Atlee By Dave Lawrence For The Mechanicsville Local When two NCAA Division I women’s volleyball teams travel far off the path to put on an exhibition, one can expect winners. One might also expect losers, but when Penn State and North Carolina

met at Hanover High School Saturday, no losers could be found. With a gym full of young women alternating between a bit of dancing and warming up prior to the start of the afternoon’s matches, the atmosphere was more full of celebration than of competition. And it was a celebration, for the exhibition featured the homecoming of two local high school stars: Penn State’s Kristin Carpenter, daughter of Atlee coach Curtis Carpenter

and standout at Hanover; and North Carolina’s Chaney LaReau, a star at Deep Run. “How many chances do you get to play in front of people that you know and love, and that have supported me since I was 7 or something?” Carpenter said. “It’s the beginning of the end, basically. I’m starting my senior season. It’s nice to kind of go out with a bang in my hometown.” LaReau, who is beginning her college career, also enjoyed the chance to play in front of a hometown crowd.

“It was really fun, working with Penn State and Kristen, who I played with when I was younger, and being in my hometown,” LaReau said. “It was really nice to be here.” There was no heads-up competition between the two schools. Instead, the matches featured teams consisting of a mixture of Penn State and North Carolina players. For much of the afternoon, Carpenter and LaReau were on the same team. see CARPENTER, pg. 37 `

Raiders stay perfect with win over Patriots

Jim Ridolphi for The Local

Patriots shortstop Brandon Lloyd attempts to pick off a Raider runner in the fifth inning of last week’s game. The runner got back to the base safe and the Raiders won 11-0 in five innings in the teams’ only meeting of the season.

By Jim Ridolphi For The Mechanicsville Local It’s always a big game when county rivals Atlee and Patrick Henry get together. With both teams sporting winning records and only one loss between them, the game took on even more importance when they met last week. The anticipation didn’t pan out for the Patriots (6-2) who dropped an 11-0 decision to the visiting

Raiders in a contest that was over before it really got started. The Raiders exploded for eight first inning runs to set the tone for the non-district match-up. “We just didn’t play well today in any aspect of the game,” said Patrick Henry coach Brad Nuckols. “We have some work to do.” First-year Raider coach Barry Burton said it was the perfect storm for his team. “You always hope that they will put

The Mechanicsville Local April 4, 2012

everything together in one game, and today we did that,” he said after the win that keeps the Raider record perfect at 40. “They are a very good ball club and we expected a dogfight.” The Raiders were already up 5-0 in the first inning when Chop Pulisic blasted a shot a three-run shot over the right field wall. “He just missed getting two the other night, so it’s great to

see him come through. That’s a thrill that not too many others,” Burton said. “He’s a hard worker and a gamer and can move the ball,” he added. Starting pitcher Cam Maxey provided all the muscle needed for the Raiders from the mound going four complete innings. “He’s a strikethrowing machine and goes out there and goes after the batters,” Burton said. “His side-armed style is tough for

opposing hitters. They don’t see it a lot and it’s tough to hit.” Nuckols was less concerned with the score than his team’s failure to respond to the first inning challenges. “I was more concerned about the way we responded to the adversity,” Nuckols said. “After they get in the hole they need to learn to keep their composure and come back. You may not win but you need to do the

little things right,” the coach added. “We’ll get that taken care of.” The Patriots face Godwin and TJ this week. Atlee 8 0 0 2 1 —11 11 1 P. Henry 0 0 0 0 0 — 0 2 2 Maxey, Ramey (5) and Keeler.

[deficit],” said Hanover coach Don Kalinowski. “A lot of the guys, it was their first big game ever. I think we just came out in that first quarter just jittery on our offense – throwing the ball away, not being patient. It’s hard to dig out of that hole.” Sophomore Casey Cook sparked Hanover’s fourthquarter rally, scoring two goals and adding an assist. “In all those little things, especially in that assist he had – he comes up with the ball and moves it, and he ends up getting a great assist,” Kalinowski said. You need playmakers. … Someone has got to step up on that offensive end when we’re playing so passively. He made plays for himself.” As the Hawks gained ground on Atlee in the fourth quarter, Hall had to settle the Raiders down. “Our coach called a timeout. We tried to get reorganized,” said Tanner Bazemore.

“Basically he told us to get it all together.” Hall said the Raiders have to do a better job of taking care of big leads. “Something that we’ve been preaching all year is that we need to develop that extra gear that allows us to put teams away,” Hall said. “We didn’t have that tonight, but going forward, that’s something we have to work on.” Josh Alston added a goal and an assist and Tye Burris had three assists for the Raiders. Brianna Mackay scored five goals and Lauren Winfrey added four more to place Atlee to victory in the girls’ game. Sarah Buckley, Sara Hatch, and Katharine Leitch scored two goals apiece, and Emily Oliver scored a goal and added an assist for the Raiders. Amy Korcsmaros scored three goals and Taylor Woolard scored two for Hanover. see ATLEE, pg. 38 `

There were no rough edges. There were no problems communicating. There was no disparity in dishing out encouragement. Regardless of the color of their uniforms, the women on the same side of the net played as one. A Nittany Lion was as supportive of her teammate in Carolina blue as she was of someone she rode with on the bus to town and vice versa. The coaches worked as hard with women from the other school as they did with the women from their own. “It’s social. I think it’s also a chance to say, ‘You know what, they’re student athletes … we’re going through the same thing. Hey, let’s spend a day of bonding through volleyball,’ ” said Tar Heel coach Joe Sagula. “We’ll root for Penn State next year because of the friendships that have

been created. Hopefully they’ll do the same. They’ll follow us and we’ll follow them.” A family atmosphere permeated the Hawks’ gym, as was evident when a toddler came up to hug Carpenter’s legs after the match. Family ties had a lot to do with both teams’ decision to meet in Mechanicsville for the exhibition. “We’ve enjoyed the relationship with Kristen and her family and it was great to have an opportunity to come here,” said Penn State coach Russ Rose. “It’s an opportunity to give back … just coming back and giving to the area and giving people in the area the opportunity to see some of the hometown kids.” Hanover coach Ken Lippa was working hard throughout the day as the event progressed, but despite the work he had a constant smile. He enjoyed the volleyball, of course, but he seemed to enjoy the camaraderie more. “I was talking to some

of the coaches on the UNC side and we said it’s so neat at lunch where they all sat together, they all played

together,” Lippa said. “When the jersey comes off at the end of the day, they’re people. That’s a big thing.”

SOFTBALL Continued from pg. 33 b

potent hitters off balance through five innings, giving up a 4-foot single by Allison Tingler in the first and a badhop single by Kacie Melton in the fifth. PH hit the ball hard on occasion but right at Atlee defenders. PH pitcher Emma Mitchell, another of the region’s quality hurlers, struck out six of Atlee’s first nine batters, but it was the Raiders who threat-

ened to score first. Lexi Cumbia opened the top of the fifth with a double and moved to third on a sacrifice bunt by Shelby Hill. Mattie Fitzgerald grounded to second baseman Ashley Samuels, who threw home. Cumbia retreated toward third. Catcher Madison Gilman whipped the ball to All-Metro third baseman Sam Moore, who tagged Cumbia out on a close call. Cumbia was injured on the play and left the game. In the top of the sixth,

Atlee’s Cameron Hall led off with a single and advanced on a bunt before an error allowed Mackenzie Keyes to reach first. The Raiders then were thwarted by back-to-back, probable run-saving defensive gems by Emma Mitchell’s freshman sister, shortstop Paige Mitchell. P. Mitchell backpedaled to her left to catch a looping ball off the bat of Holte and followed that by going right and backhanding a well-placed

liner by Delani Farrar. “We didn’t push the runs across when we needed to,” Atlee coach John Earley said. “They took one away from us with a great play, and we squandered one. … This was the first really big test for us, and we passed it. We just didn’t win. We found out we can play at the high level. We just need to refine a few things.” Patrick Henry scored in the bottom of the sixth. No. 9 hitter Ellen Davidson singled to right and was sacrificed

to second by Paige Mitchell. Tingler ripped a triple to deep right to drive home Davidson, and Moore’s infield single down the third-base line scored Tingler. “It was an inside pitch. She had been going inside all day, and I finally got around and turned on it, and it paid off,” Tingler said. She got a signal from first-base coach Walter Pettus to look for an inside pitch. “I did what he said, and he was right. We definitely executed well that inning. We

did what we were supposed to do.” Both coaches talked about the little things deciding the outcome. Tingler said the Patriots won because “we got the little things done.” Crowder said, “To come out against this team and play the way we did … I told them, ‘You have tomorrow off. You made me happy’.” Atlee 000 000 0 – 0 5 1 Patrick Henry 000 002 x – 2 5 1 Holte and Hall; Mitchell and Gilman.
