Fire/EMS cuts top public budget concerns By Jim Ridolphi For The Mechanicsville Local

Jim Ridolphi for The Local

Hanover County Fire/EMS members rose in support for restored funding for their programs at last week’s public hearing on the 2013 proposed budget.

Warner in Ashland: economy improving By Jim Ridolphi For The Mechanicsville Local

Tracey Magner was chosen as a captain on Thursday at Mechanicsville Elementary School for the Tree Trivia program hosted by Dominion Resources. She headed the Redwood Team. Choosing team members was the hard part and rotating teams of five got an opportunity to play. For more on the event, see the story on page 7.

After a long and arduous budget process, Hanover County citizens got their first opportunity last Wednesday to voice their opinions on the proposed 2013 document. As supervisors prepare to vote on the $367.4 million budget this week, the message from their constituents was clear. Substantial cuts to Hanover’s Fire/EMS services are not popular with the public — or the many volunteers and employees who work in the system. In response to a challenging budget crunch, officials proposed cutting the Fire/EMS budget

in staffing, training, equipment replacement and maintenance. Many rose to speak against those cuts at a public hearing on April 4. Speakers echoed the sentiment that the cuts were short-sighted and would seriously affect the department’s ability to perform its duties if they are prolonged. Several said the system could survive a temporary cut in the funding, but the reductions could have serious long-term consequences. “This not a realistic plan,” said fire chief staff representative Steve Taylor. “We’re willing to concur with these changes for a few years to do our

U.S. Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., displayed an energetic enthusiasm as he greeted a supportive group of local Democrats at Ashland Coffee and Tea last week. The appreciative audience was the perfect warm-up for an afternoon appearance on Tuesday, April 3, at RandolphMacon College, a question and answer session with students and interested citizens. Before the informal session at Ashland Coffee and Tea, Warner took a walking tour of

Ashland hosted by Tom Wulf, president of the Ashland Main Street Association, and other officials. The senator said he was impressed with what he saw and heard. “I love Ashland,” Warner said. “Every time I come back, there’s more going on. The best news is everyone I talked with said the economy is getting better, which is good news. For anyone in retail, it’s been a long haul the last three years. People are optimistic. Now we just have to make sure we don’t mess that up in Washington [D.C.],” he added.

Jim Ridolphi for The Local

U.S. Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., told members of the Hanover County Democratic Committee that the current debt and deficit problem will require shared sacrifice for all, and entitlement programs should be readjusted (for future users) to realistically meet the challenge.

“This is a better tonic for Committee. me than umpteenth weeks and Warner said his R-MC mesthe stuff I have to deal with in sage would focus on current Washington,” Warner told the see WARNER, pg. 5  Hanover County Democratic

The Local Pick:

County wins third straight Go Green Challenge award For the third consecutive year, Hanover County has achieved the goals of the Go Green Challenge Award, given by the Virginia Association of Counties and Virginia Municipal League to recognize local governments that reduce energy usage and promote sustainable practices. The Go Green Virginia Challenge is a friendly competition designed to encourage implementation of specific environmental policies and practical actions that reduce the carbon emissions generated by both the local government and its community. Cities, towns and counties can become a certified “Green Government.” The Challenge also notes that many of these actions can save local governments money. Hanover County has done things like retrofitting old lighting with more efficient lighting that reduces energy usage and saves money; replacing old oil-fired boilers with more efficient gas units resulting in better efficiencies and a smaller Carbon footprint; and installing motion sensors that turn off ceiling lights automatically when there is no motion. A recent relamping of Atlee library from metal halide to high wattage CFL is expected to save about $4,000 annually with a simple payback in four months. Newly-renovated spaces such as the new Social Services/Community Services offices in Bell Creek have been built with high-efficient dual fuel HVAC, lighting and insulation to save money and energy. Facilities Management and County Administration also have focused on boosting employee participation and education in such activities as bottle and can recycling and awareness through the employee newsletter. The county continues to work with Dominion Virginia Power to seek the best rate structure for buildings, resulting in future energy and cost savings. The county government also has partnered with the EPA in taking the ENERGY STAR Challenge, which allows Hanover to benchmark their usage of electricity and fuel with similar buildings in other localities. In 2010, the county obtained an Energy

Efficiency & Conservation Block Grant that funded the replacement of old oil-fired boilers in the Courts buildings with new gas boilers. These new gas boilers are both more efficient and reduce pollution. The block grant money also was used to improve the energy efficiency of the county’s Data Center. A new storage array using more energy-efficient hard drives and controllers has allowed the county to increase raw storage capabilities while reducing the use of electricity. The physical layout of the Data Center was renovated, reducing the square footage of space needing to be cooled. Also, two older air conditioner units will be replaced with one system that can provide critical cooling more efficiently. “We will continue to pursue opportunities for energy savings and waste reduction in a manner that is both economically feasible and operationally sound,” David Butler, deputy director of the Department of General Services, said.

Defendant in teen’s death freed 17-year-old released after serving 3 months in Jyreffe Clark shooting By Bill McKelway Media General News Service A 17-year-old Hanover youth who helped discard his dead friend’s body after a fatal shooting last year is home with his family after a three-month jail stay. Laquan Tullis dodged cameras and more jail time Thursday after a Hanover County Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court judge released him for time served on a single misdemeanor charge, according to a Tullis relative. Tullis, expressionless and wearing a butterscotch-colored suit, walked away from a closed-door sentencing hearing without comment. His lawyer declined comment. Court proceedings and documents were kept secret because of Tullis’ age. Relatives of Jyreffe Patrick Clark, 17, who died from a single gunshot wound to the back of his head during a videotaping that mimicked a video by rapper 50 Cent, also left the hearing without comment. Tullis is the youngest of three defendants in the case, one of whom, Franklin Eugene Robertson III, also 17, faces a second-degree murder trial next month in Circuit Court. After the Dec. 17 shooting at his home in the 6400 block of Lark Way in Mechanicsville, Robertson directed a cleanup effort and the disposal of Clark’s body in a nearby field, according to court documents. The four young men, all students at Lee-Davis High School, were re-enacting portions of a music video titled “Get

Rich or Die Tryin’,” according to court documents associated with the case files of a third defendant, 18-year-old Michael Thompson. Robertson produced a loaded gun at his home, and as music played in the background, the youths filmed themselves re-enacting a portion of the film: Tullis aimed the weapon at a mirror and pulled the trigger with nothing happening. He then “racked” the weapon and handed it to Robertson, who pulled the trigger. A single bullet entered Clark’s head behind his left ear and lodged near the front of his head. A medical examiner’s report said that the injury was “instantly incapacitating and fatal in nature.” Robertson “decided they needed to get Jyreffe out of the house,” according to a summary of the case in public court files. The three set about cleaning up bloodstains, getting rid of a shell casing, spraying the area with air freshener to get rid of the gunpowder odors and dragging Clark’s body to a nearby field. None of the three said anything about the shooting until confronted by Hanover investigators the next day after a neighbor discovered the body. Investigators followed a trail of blood back to Robertson’s home. Outside court Thursday, an uncle of Tullis’ described the suffering of the young man and the remorse he feels. “You can tell behind the eyes that his life has changed,” said Harry L. Dandridge Jr., an evangelist who travels to Greensville

Fund drive to benefit Angel House Aloha Orthodontics and Dr. Pamela Regimbal kicked off the Annual April Fund Drive on April 2, with 100 percent of proceeds of all initial records fees being donated to Angel House, a Grass Roots Ministry’s project (grassrootsministry.org). The project, which runs through May 11, has already completed an orphanage and secondary school and current donations are being used to support the construction of a

primary school, fund teacher salaries, meals, and property upkeep. Dr. Lisa Alvetro of Alvetro Orthodontics of Sidney, Ohio, is a professional friend of Dr. Regimbal. Dr. Alvetro joined forces with the Grass Roots Ministry organization after visiting Tanzania in 2006 and thought the living conditions for children were horrendous. see ANGEL, pg. 8 `

Correctional Center to counsel condemned prison inmates. Dandridge said that unlike some prisoners on death row, Tullis will never lose the support and love of his family, which has stayed with him during his incarceration since the shooting. The family agreed that Tullis should be held without bond from the start of the case rather than seek release pending trial, Dandridge said. Tullis was convicted March 8. “Today is the first day of healing for our family,” Dandridge said, stressing that Clark’s family also is in the Tullis family’s prayers. His voice cracked with emotion trying to explain the pain of raising a young man in a close home only to have him make a tragic mistake. “You can’t protect them when they walk out the door,” he said. Thompson was convicted in juvenile court and sentenced to 12 months in jail with six months suspended. But he appealed to Circuit Court, was found guilty earlier this week and will be sentenced in July. He was charged, as Tullis was, with being an accessory after the commission of a felony, a misdemeanor. Tullis will be placed on probation for a year, according to his uncle, and is enrolling in a school system outside of Hanover County, according to Dandridge. Clark was a devout Christian and churchgoer whose funeral attracted hundreds of mourners. He had hoped to become a musician, his family and friends said.

LETTERS

From the editor

| Reader Views

Moving inspires need to clean out closets Genetics could be the cause. My late father never threw away anything. He lived by a “somebody might be able to use that” motto. We realized just how true those words were to him when, several years after his death, the family took on the challenge of cleaning out the garage. There were boxes of nails, pieces of wire and just about everything imaginable that “somebody might be able to use.” As well intentioned as he was, they had become a hodgepodge of clutter — and it was time to sort through and prepare for numerous trips to the landfill. This came to mind last week while sorting through boxes of old financial records, etc., as the shredder kicked into high gear. The inspiration to tackle the closets is a positive (and, no, this writer does not adhere to the traditional spring cleaning philosophy). Moving day nears. Mechanicsville will continue to be home. Anyone who has ever moved knows that relocating four miles is no less involved than one that covers 400 miles. We have lots of “stuff.” Paring down for this writer started before the move to Virginia in 2005. Then another move in Winchester prompted a thorough inventory of the many boxes filling the storage unit. That Saturday afternoon was comical in many ways, with items that spanned a lifetime. Still don’t know why those old diaries held any interest. The musings of a junior high school student did spur many a chuckle that day. But the time had come to dispose of them. There weren’t any literary gems worth keeping — or remembering, for that matter. After having recently bundled up large bags of clothing and accessories for a church yard sale, there was a brief feeling of accomplishment. Then came the discovery of boxes of receipts, bank statements, direct deposit slips — you get the idea. After literally killing one shredder, a quick purchase of a new model resumed turning the papers into confetti-like remnants. Yes, moving is an exciting event (I keep telling myself that as the stress level rises). But, this journey has reminded me why I have gone paperless (oh, yeah, and I’m doing my part for the environment). “Somebody might be able to use that” still echoes as the bags headed to the dumpster grow. Happy moving to me. Melody Kinser

Addressing ObamaCare ‘facts’ Regarding The Mechanicsville Local’s letters to the editor “ObamaCare and the election” in the March 280, 2012, edition: Wilma Royer’s “facts” regarding the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) are so exaggerated and more frankly inaccurate as to be laughable. But, Ms. Royer, there is one point in your piece that I agree with and that is “this is not a joke.” One thing that jumped out at me while listening to some of the audio of arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court was that of U. S. Solicitor General Donald Verrilli. He said that “insurance has become the prominent means for paying for healthcare in this country. For more than 40 million Americans who do not have access to health insurance the system does not work.” Another item that jumped out to me while watching some cable news was that credible Polls suggest that a plurality of U.S. voters do not approve of the PPACA. Yet, when you drill down and ask polling questions about what the PPACA will cover, there are a lot of headscratching anomalies. For example, a CBS/New York Times Poll was conducted March 21-25 (+ /- 3 percent margin of error). To one of the questions: “Do you approve or disapprove of a provision in the 2010 Health Care Law that requires Health Insurance Companies to cover those who may have an existing medical condition or prior illness?,” 85percent of all those polled approve; more significantly, 76 percent of self-described Republicans approve of this provision. To this letter writer, the head-scratching data yielded from the questions like the one asked in the above poll suggest a disconnect between the spew of Ms. Royer and what the PPACA will actually do for the significant number of U.S. citizens who are blocked from or too poor to obtain good affordable healthcare insurance. The possibility that Virginia will be an important battleground state in the coming election is exciting to political junkies like me, because, if the data gleaned from the above poll and other credible polls hold into November, it suggests: ❍ A large portion of Republicans and Independents, who lean Republican, approve of the provisions in the PPACA ❍ A large portion of Republicans and Independents, who lean Republican, are ignoring the inaccuracies spewed by Ms Royer. And here are some real facts: Provisions already enacted by the PPACA like closing the donut hole, allowing dependents under 26 to get onto their parents’ healthcare insurance, and banning insurance companies from rejecting people with pre-existing conditions are very popular and

woe to any representative or senator who takes that way. Learning real facts and ignoring spew will finally give the United States an Affordable HealthCare Law that will work much like the successful Republican sponsored Affordable HealthCare Law with a mandate that Gov. Mitt Romney instituted in Massachusetts. Bob Murphy Mechanicsville

Apologies for misinformation I would like to apologize to Mimmo’s Restaurant for all the inconsiderate misinformed citizens of Mechanicsville. Although the Stonewall Jackson Middle School Band’s spaghetti dinner on Tuesday, March 13, was supposed to be a great fundraiser for the band trip, it was handled incorrectly by the school, not Mimmo’s. Mimmo’s “donated” approximately 450 meals – salad, bread and spaghetti – for this event. However, the fault lies within the school for selling more than 1,000 meals. This meant each person paying the $10 for their meal got about a third of their “donated” dinner and the school ran out of food before all orders were filled. I am appalled at the people who actually went to Mimmo’s after picking up their meals and demanded that they be given a refund or a full meal. Put the blame where it belongs, not on a generous establishment like Mimmo’s, but on the persons responsible for this outrageous handling of a fundraiser by the SJMS Band. (I do support fundraisers for the band and love their concerts.) Thank you, Mimmo’s, for your unselfish generosity. By the way, the “spoonful” of spaghetti and salad I received was delicious as always. Carolyn B. Hilliard Mechanicsville

April 11, 2012

Beaverdam Elementary School and Mechanicsville Elementary School are among 92 schools in Virginia to receive the designation of “Title I Distinguished Schools.” Those two schools represent Hanover County Public Schools, according to a report recently released by the Virginia Board of Education. Two school divisions and 92 schools have been recognized by the state system for raising the academic achievement of economically disadvantaged students. The awards are based on student achievement on state assessments during the 2010-2011 and 2009-2010 school years. Highland County and West Point earned the designation of “Distinguished Title I School Division” by exceeding all federal

Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) achievement objectives in reading and mathematics for two consecutive years. Beaverdam and Mechanicsville are among the 92 schools named “Title I Distinguished Schools” for maintaining full state accreditation under the commonwealth’s Standards of Learning program for two consecutive years, meeting federal benchmarks in reading and mathematics and having average test scores in both subjects at the 60th percentile or higher. “The foundation of each of these success stories is the conviction that all children — regardless of family income — can learn and achieve,” Board of Education president David M. Foster said. “The success of these schools and divisions is particularly noteworthy given how

the federal benchmarks increase every year,” superintendent of public instruction Patricia I. Wright said. Each school and division will receive a certificate celebrating its status and achievement. Title I of ESEA provides funding to school divisions and schools for programs to raise the achievement of students identified as being at risk of academic failure. The federal education law, whose most recent reauthorization is also known as the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, requires schools and school divisions to meet annual objectives for increasing student achievement on statewide assessments in reading/language arts and mathematics. During 2010-2011, 294, or 40 percent, of Virginia’s 729 Title I schools met all federal objectives.

WARNER

County, Warner enjoys solid support among party faithful. According to county party chairman Gordon Silver, the town has voted blue in many elections in recent memory. “He’s a wonderful senator. He believes in Democratic values,” Silver said. “He won Hanover County in 2008,” he added, but quickly said a repeat of that performance was unlikely in such a heavily Republican county. Silver said his committee is making tremendous strides in “getting voters excited” about the upcoming election. With rumors of the senator’s return to the Governor’s Mansion quietly SILVER circulating among political bloodhounds, the Warner said he’s focused on his duties in the Senate — for the meantime.

“I never planned on being in the Senate for 40 years,” Warner said. “Right now, I think I can provide the most value by continuing to work toward a bipartisan deficit reduction plan in the Senate.” For now, Warner said he’s focused on those debts and a bipartisan solution, referring to it as “his obsession.” He said the perfect economic storm is looming at the end of 2012. “Come the end of the year, we’re going to have to deal with this because the Bush tax cuts end, there are automatic defense and other cuts and you will have to raise the debt ceiling again,” he said. He likened the end of the year situation to the final scene in the movie “Thelma and Louise.” “Remember that final scene with the car, pedal to the metal, headed toward the cliff?” Warner asked. “We’re headed toward that cliff. If we don’t get this solved, there should be no elected official that should have the excuse that we didn’t see it coming.”

Continued from pg. 5b

the status quo would bankrupt us. I hope the court upholds the laws and allows us to come back and fix the parts that are broken as opposed to upending the whole thing,” Warner said. He said the current law, or any alternative, would not work unless it is coupled with a solution addressing rising healthcare costs. Warner has been at the center of several efforts to form bipartisan coalitions in the U.S. Senate. He said those efforts will continue. He also was candid about the current gridlock in Washington politics. “It’s hard being up in Washington these days,” Warner told the crowd at Ashland Coffee and Tea. “I’ve never had a job where you do more stuff and sometimes at the end of week you have less to show for it.” With Ashland considered the center of the Democratic universe in Hanover

John M. Mills & Sons receives Agribusiness Environment Award Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com John N. Mills & Sons, a family owned farm business in Hanover and King William counties, has been awarded the Virginia Agribusiness Council’s 2012 Agribusiness Environment Award. Council Board of Directors member Bryan Taliaferro Jr. of Center Cross presented the award on Feb. 23 during the Virginia Grains and Soybean Annual Conference in Williamsburg. John N. Mills & Sons has a long his-

tory in Virginia. Pleasant Level Farm was the original farm and a Land Grant from King George III of England to Nicholas Mills in 1725. The land grant was for 400 acres of land, of which a parcel of the land has never left the Mills family name and continues to be farmed by the family 287 years later. Since then, the farming operation has grown significantly, now consisting of 5,744 acres that produce corn, wheat,

soybeans, barley, hay and timber, as well as provides pasture for a sizeable herd of beef cattle. John N. Mills & Sons has been implementing conservation and stewardship practices since the 1960s. Some of the best management practices implemented by the Mills family include no-till planting methods and Submitted photo cover crops to reduce soil erosion and Nicholas Mills, from left, Trey Mills, Gary Martin, John N.

part. However, this will result in problems in the long term. What’s the purpose of preparing for emergencies if our trucks won’t start?” he asked, referring to the budget’s cuts to replacement schedules. “What will happen when someone loses their life due to broken or malfunctioning equipment?” Taylor questioned. Coupled with proposed cuts in repair and maintenance, Taylor said cuts in replacement plan are “a double-edged sword.” Donald Talley has worked at Station 8 for 51 years and urged the board to restore some of the proposed cuts to Fire/EMS. He said the key to maintaining high quality service is constant and specialized training for its volunteers, an area also targeted for reduction in this year’s proposed budget. “If our people are not able to get their training here in the county, they are going to travel

and pay for that somewhere out of the county,” Talley said. “It’s going to cause a lot of problems for EMS personnel trying to provide the service that is necessary.” Other volunteers and fire association representatives spoke directly of the cuts in staffing at some stations to two members. All said two-man staffing is unacceptable, below national standards and should be addressed in future budgets. The staffing cuts also hit close to home for one Hanover resident. Joy Elliott and her family have serious medical issues and have relied on members of Station 9 in Rockville. “The firemen are family to us,” Elliott said. “I need to make sure when I pick up the phone, someone can help me.” While Fire/EMS was the predominant item for discussion, a host of speakers used the public hearing to express opinions on the budget for Hanover County Public Schools for 2013, which also required some painful cuts in the minds of many who spoke. We’ve tightened the belt and now we’re chewing on the leather,” said Beaverdam resident Patty Davis. “I think the two greatest things Hanover County provides to its residents is the EMS and the education.” Davis said taking another

Ranger Sassafras fired questions on the life of a tree as classmates cheered their favorite teams. The program partners interesting facts about trees and their benefits with a high energy presentation that allows kids to have fun while learning important facts. The information is taken from Standards of Learning (SOL) learning guides.

“We teach our children about plants in the classroom and this is an excellent opportunity to reinforce what we’ve taught them about the importance and benefit of plants,” said third grade teacher Kim Baer. She said it gives children a first-hand chance to show off what they’ve learned. “They’re excited about this,” Baer said. “It’s great that they knew all the answers,” she laughed.

“Going forward from here, we need to do something in terms of generating some kind of income,” she said. Those additional revenues will not come in the form of increased property taxes since the board opted to retain the current 81 cents per $100 of assessed value.

Hawks strike early to hand Raiders first loss Hanover holds off Atlee 7th inning comeback By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com The Hanover Hawks jumped out to a 5-0 lead after two innings then held off a determined Raider comeback in the bottom of the seventh to down host Atlee 5-2 on Thursday night. “To come to their place and win is big,” said Hanover assistant coach Russ Abernathy. “The game’s the same no matter where you play but it is different when you’re playing on somebody else’s field.” The #3 Hawks (5-1, 2-1)

not only handed #6 Atlee (5-1, 2-1) their first loss of the season but showed they would not be humbled after suffering an upset home loss to Glen Allen the week before. The game was highlighted by a matchup of two of the Capital District’s best pitchers; Atlee junior Luke Bolka and Hanover senior Chris Childress. Childress turned in an impressive performance, nearly going the distance while limiting the potent Raiders to five hits over six and two thirds innings of action. “We told him go as hard as you can for as long as you can and when it’s time we’ll come and get you and that time happened to be in the seventh,” Abernathy said.

For Childress, it was a matter of sticking to the game plan www.mechlocal.com set by his coaches. “I just went See slideshow online! out there and threw hard and gave it what I had,” he said. Bolka was equally as strong for Atlee but the Hanover bats proved better in the first two trips to the plate. In the top of the first, Andrew Knizner got things going for the Hawks with a shot to second that proved elusive for the Atlee defense. After Bryant Lowry lined out to left, Childress was walked and Keith Searles sent an RBI line drive over short to plate Knizner. Blake Spiers made the score 2-0 by slipping an RBI shot through the left side to drive in Charlie Leffler/The Local Childress.

Atlee rebounds from nightmare 3rd to down Hanover 5-4 Raiders remain perfect in district By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Heading into the bottom of the seventh in a 4-4 deadlock with rival Hanover, Atlee sophomore Mattie Fitzgerald blistered a shot up the middle to drive in Delani Farrar and Charlie Leffler/The Local

give the host Raiders a 5-4 win over the visiting Hawks. On the veteran team it was Atlee youngsters Fitzgerald (3for-4, 3 RBIs) and freshman Shelby Hill (3-for-4, run, 2B) who proved most valuable. “I thought Shelby Hill played a great game and sophomore Mattie Fitzgerald, she had some timely hitting,” said Atlee head coach John Earley. “Both drove the ball when they hit it. They came through big time.” Both teams entered the Thursday evening contest

ranked and sporting unblemished Capital District records. The Raiders were ranked #5 in last week’s TD Softball Poll while the Hawks came in at #9. “It’s going to be a good game against Atlee- country rivalrythese girls know each other so well,” said Hanover head coach Brian Letourneau. “It’s going to be back and forth. One inning’s not going to decide it.” It was an intense contest throughout but jitters on defense played a factor on both

“I’m going to give all the credit to Hanover,” he said. “I’m not going to say Luke was off. I’m going to give it to them for going out there and being aggressive, swinging the bats, doing what they had to do to put the ball in play.” The early lead also freed up Childress to go even harder on the mound for the Hawks.

“Any time you’re facing a kid who’s, like Luke Bolkaeverybody’s talking about him, I mean getting five runs is huge,” he said. “It takes the weight of the world off your shoulders.” After giving up the initial runs in the first two innings, the Raider defense tightened and they did not allow Hanover to

score again. Atlee got on the board in the bottom of the fifth after a leadoff walk by senior Jonathan Baughn. Baughn stole second, reached third on a pitch in the dirt then came home on a sacrifice to center by Mike Harmon. The Raiders added one more in the bottom of the sixth after a lead-off single by Chop Pulisic. Next up Mitch Keeler drove what appeared to be a double-play shot to short. Knizner fielded the ball and made the throw to Justin Lynn for a force out at second. But Pulisic’s contact on the slide prevented Lynn from completing the throw to first. Keeler reached third on a single to right by Kenner Berry then came home when Brent West’s shot to center was dropped. Atlee was in a position to tie or take the lead with two out in the bottom of the seventh. Singles by Harmon and Dalton Ruch forced Hanover

After giving up three runs in the first, the Hanover defense was solid for the remainder of the game. The top of the third turned into an uncharacteristic collapse by the veteran Atlee defense and it was Hanover’s turn to take advantage. Maura Long got things going for the Hawks with a roller toward third. She reached safely when the ball glanced off the glove of Farrar at first. Long then advanced to third on the botched defense on a bunt by Julie Palmer. Long scored on a single past short from Erica Barrett and Barrett was joined on base when Kiandra Mitchum (2for-4, run) directed a shot past short as well. Albright grounded out to the pitcher but it allowed both runners to advance into scoring position. Brooke Throckmorton (2for-3, RBI, run) then bulleted a

grounder to short. Even though Sutherland made a fantastic diving stop on the ball Barrett scored to pull the Hawks within one, 3-2. Earley had seen enough and called time. “I went out to the mound and I just said, ‘Jessica’s pitching good and they’re hitting ground balls to you’,” Earley told his team. “’You’ve just got to make a good throw and get the out. We’ll be fine’. Then right after that they had another error and I’m; ‘There goes that speech’.” Immediately after Earley’s talk, Hanover’s Shawna Kirby sent a roller toward third that appeared to be in foul territory. But Atlee fielded the ball and the throw went wide of first allowing Mitchum and Throckmorton to score for a 4-3 Hawk lead. “It was just like, ‘Oh my gosh here we go. Oh my gosh here we go’,” Earley said. “I just couldn’t

believe it and the next thing I know there’s two runs up, then there’s three, then there’s four. I’m just like ‘Wow’. “We’re normally good for maybe an error, maybe two, one throwing, one catching and we had four in that third inning and that’s just not us at all. “That third inning defensively, it was a nightmare,” Earley said. “We made some major throwing errors and just decision errors… Just kind of building and snowballed. We were lucky to get out of it only giving up four runs the way we were playing. It could have been more.” Escaping the inning only trailing by one, the Raiders got back on track behind the pitching of Holte, who finished the game with six strikeouts. “I thought she threw a pretty good game. We abandoned her in the third inning,” Earley said. “I think after that inning, they got it out of their system and

Hanover added to their lead with two outs in the bottom of the second. Steven Mack reached on a misplayed ball at second, Knizner singled to left and Lowry was hit by a pitch to load the bags. Mack then scored on a pass ball when the throw back to the plate got away from Bolka. Knizner took advantage of the loose ball and scored as well for a 4-0 Hawk lead. Childress then drove an RBI shot into center that plated Lowry and capped the Hanover scoring. “We had some good at bats,” Abernathy said. “Bolka was throwing hard. I thought we were patient at the plate and we did a good job of hitting some balls hard off him when he had it coming into the zone.” Atlee head coach Barry Burton agreed that the Hawks’ offense had nothing to do with Bolka being off his game.

teams. After Atlee pitcher Jessica Holte forced a three-and-out first at bat for the Hawks, the Raiders struck quickly in the bottom of the inning and took advantage of Hanover miscues. The Raiders were aided by an uncanny slow start from Hawks’ pitcher Shannon Albright. “She had a rocky first inning but after that she gave us every chance to win that ball game,” Letourneau said. With one out, Atlee’s Taylor Sutherland reached on an errant play at first and Mackenzie Keyes singled into center. A grounder up the third base line by Farrar drove in Sutherland for a 1-0 lead. Keyes added to the lead when Holte dropped a shot into short left. Farrar then pushed the margin to 3-0 off a single up the middle from Fitzgerald.

to finally pull Childress from the mound. Sophomore Derek Casey came on in relief but immediately walked Pulisic to load the bases. Then facing one of Atlee’s best hitters, Casey closed out the contest in style, sealing the win with a standing strikeout of Keeler. “It was a tough spot for a sophomore, Derek Casey, to be in,” Abernathy said. “He walked that first guy then he came back and threw some quality pitches to a really good hitter. He threw a great last slider there that just kind of froze (Keeler). It was a big time pitch at a big time moment. “That’s a very good baseball team,” Abernathy said. “We’re fortunate to win tonight.” Though saddled with their first loss of the season, Burton has no doubt his Raiders will bounce back. “I think we’ll be fine,” he said. “I think the rivalry, to be honest with you, supersedes the district race and

everything. We’re going to see them again and certainly the race is not over.” The Hanover win tightens the early season Capital District race. Lee-Davis is the only team that remains undefeated in league play but the Confederates have yet to play Hanover or Atlee. “We just didn’t get it done,” Burton said, not wanting to over-emphasize the loss. “What more can you ask for. You get the tying run on first base. You get it done, you get it done. You don’t, you don’t. You come back the next day and work hard and you just go to work. The world is still turning.”

they played well again.” Atlee appeared to be in good position to get a run back in the bottom of the third. With one out, Shelby Hill singled then stole second. But Hill jumped the gun on a deep shot to center by Fitzgerald. Barrett made an impressive running catch then threw to second to catch Hill in a double-play. In the bottom of the fifth, it was Hill who gutted out injury to get the tie. With one out and facing a 2-2 count, Hill fouled a shot off her shin and play was stopped as she limped up and down the sideline in pain. When Hill returned to the plate, she blasted a double to left. “Tough kid,” Earley said of Hill. “Very tough kid.” Hill then came home to knot the game at 4-4 on a shot from Fitzgerald that set up the seventh inning heroics. Though the Hawks came up short, Letourneau believes

his team learned something in their comeback after the slow start. “That type of fight, that type of composure, that’s going to pay dividends in the long run.” Likewise, Earley hopes Atlee learned from the game as well and considers themselves lucky to escape with the win. “I think they know that nine times out of ten if they make those mistakes they’re not going to be able win,” he said. “I think they were fortunate tonight, they knew because they got three runs in the first inning that they’re going to kind of score one or two more runs sometime during the game.”

overall Hanover played really well, I thought. It’s a big team.” The Hawks opened with strong passing combinations that got them within striking distance in the first forty seconds. But Raiders’ sophomore keeper Jordan Smith was there to make the save as well as ward off two more Hanover shots on goal within the first five minutes of play. Atlee, ranked #4 in last week’s Times-Dispatch poll, may have come out a little too fired up for the rivalry matchup. “The main thing we’ve been working on is keeping our intensity, which is coming out a little bit harder than we normally come out,” Lovelace said. “Although we didn’t really do that, per se. We just played our game.” Senior Ashley Reifner felt the intensity wasn’t focused well at the beginning of the match. “I thought at first we were kind of frantic, so we didn’t really get it going,” said the University of Richmond signee. “The second

half we put some passes together so it worked out for us.” A minute later, on a retaliatory strike, Atlee senior Sam Armentrout touched one in with an assist from freshman Jamari Blackwell. “We call her Jammer,” Armentrout said. “A lot of this past week in practice we’ve been working on getting the ball out to the flanks, getting some overlapping runs from the outside backs. So it was one of the things we’ve been trying to put together in the games and it was just a great ball. I don’t know who slotted it through to (Blackwell) but I knew she’d been consistent on putting them in on the ground, and they’re tough to get out on the defense ‘cause they’re running back, so I knew if I just crashed the box, I’d hopefully get a touch on it and I did.” For Lovelace, the play went as scripted. “Jamari just made a great play running down the flank and then Sam just made her run to far side and she slot-

On Thursday evening, the host Atlee girls soccer team (60, 3-0 Capital) kept their record unscathed as they defeated rival Hanover 2-0. The final score reflects a more lop-sided competition than what actually occurred. The Hawks (3-2, 2-1) played strong and for the most part did solid work running interference with the Raiders’ top scorers, and getting their fair share of shots on goal. “I told the girls after the game that I think collectively this was probably the best game that we’ve had all season,” said Hanover head coach Joe Broscious, who is in his first season at the helm of the girls soccer team. “We didn’t obviously, necessarily, get the result that we wanted; but as far as effort, and work ethic on the field, and stuff that we’ve actually worked on in practice, I saw a lot of that being implemented tonight, and that’s definitely a good sign going into the future. “I think for a couple of stretches there we really outplayed them,” Broscious said. “I think we were just unlucky enough to [not] get a couple of goals in. It was either like a bad touch, or that last pass just didn’t make it to where it needed to be. It’s just stuff that we continue to work on, so hopefully the next time we play them we’ll get a better result.” Atlee head coach Bruce Lovelace agreed. “I thought Hanover played well,” he said. “They moved the ball around nicely. They looked good…a much improved team. Our outside speed and the flanks created some problems for them; but

From Rapids QB to NASCAR driver By Jim McConnell Media General News Services A dislocated shoulder prematurely ended Sam Hunt’s football career last fall, but the James River High School senior is feeling no ill effects from the injury as he navigates his rookie season as a stock-car racer in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series. Hunt joined fellow 18year-old driver C.J. Faison at Richmond International Raceway last Thursday, where they shared their stories and addressed a variety of racing-related topics with a large group of students from Henrico County Public Schools automotive classes. The drivers also gave the students a tour of their race haulers and even let a few of them slide into the cockpit of the cars they’ll pilot in the Blue Ox 100 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race later this month at RIR. While Faison made his debut on the .75-mile oval last spring,

the April 26 event will be a significant racing milestone for Hunt, a Midlothian native who has many fond memories of sitting in the grandstand with his father and watching NASCAR’s stars turn laps at RIR. “It was always a dream of mine, but it really did seem far away,” Hunt said of the opportunity to race in Richmond. “It will be a big deal for me and I’m sure there will be a ton of butterflies, being on this big stage. But once you’re strapped up and out on the track, it’s amazing how fast all that stuff goes away.” Hunt has been most comfortable going fast since the first time he raced a go-kart as a 6-year-old. He got interested in racing when his family moved to Holland and continued to work his way up the motorsports ladder upon returning to the United States a few years later. Hunt started racing Late Models before he received his learner’s permit, quickly earning

kudos for his ability to protect his equipment and avoid the type of “over-aggressive” mistakes that have dogged so many teenage racers. Hunt spent last season with FDJ Motorsports in Ashland, running Late Models at South Boston Speedway. He was on the verge of breaking into the top-10 in points when he took a helmet to his right shoulder during an October football game against Midlothian and sustained a torn labrum. Surgery ended both his football career and his race season, and forced him into four months of physical therapy to regain both strength and range of motion in his shoulder. But the “bad break” would soon be followed by a golden career opportunity he never saw coming. On Nov. 29, Precision Performance Motorsports owner Rick Gdovic announced his operation had added Hunt to its Driver Development

Atlee alum Farrar finding his groove with VCU

Atlee alum Ryan Farrar, now a junior at VCU, keeps his eye on the ball even after his release. In his third season with the Rams, Farrar is finding his groove as the Saturday starter.

The Mechanicsville Local April 11, 2012

By Dave Lawrence For The Mechanicsville Local Former Atlee baseball standout Ryan Farrar thought he would take the college baseball world by storm when he signed with Virginia Commonwealth University three years ago. The storm may finally be approaching. The junior has been growing up, athletically and personally, and is now emerging as one of the aces of the Rams’ rotation. Despite a tough 2-0 loss to George Mason on Saturday afternoon, Farrar went eight innings, scattering five hits and dropped his season ERA to 3.31. So far this season, he has started eight games, facing 212 batters, giving up 21 runs (19 earned), 48 hits and 16 walks.

He’s struck out 43 batters and held opposing teams to a .255 batting average. VCU coach Paul Keyes described how Farrar has developed. “He’s got stronger, obviously, but more than anything, ultimately he’s got more confidence,” Keyes said. “His changeup is really a big difference in his pitching. He was more of a fastball/curveball guy in high school, but now he’s a fastball/change/slider guy – slider being his third pitch. But the changeup really shows off his fastball a little bit more and gives it a little bit more jump. He’s more aggressive, learning how to pitch better.” George Mason coach Bill Brown said Farrar’s competitive

spirit gives him an edge. “He moves the ball in and out, but he competes very, very well,” Brown said. “He’s just a good-looking kid on the mound. He comes right at you and says ‘Here it is.’ ” The start of Farrar’s college career was far from dominating. The pitcher finished his freshman and sophomore years with respective earned run averages of 8.14 and 7.04. He said he expected the success he had in high school – a three-time allCapital District player and twotime all-state player –to follow him to college. “I think I had a little too much confidence, like happens to a lot of guys coming out of high school, dominating there, see FARRAR, pg. 37 `


being so picky. I thought he was picky that first three or four batters. He got more aggressive.” Brown appreciated his performance. “It’s tough when you give up a couple runs early, then still carry your team into the back third of the game,” Brown said. “He threw great today, it just so happens, we got a shutout.” Keyes attributes some of

Farrar’s growth to his playing summer ball. “He was up in the Cal Ripken League last summer and had a really good summer as a closer. That sort of springboarded his confidence and he sort of carried it on this year,” Keyes said. “They learn a little bit more because they get away from your program and they get with other guys from other programs. If they’re willing to share and open up and learn, it’s a good experience for them.” Keyes hinted that Farrar might have a chance in the Major Leagues’ draft this year, but Farrar’s focus is more immediate. “I just want to be the best college baseball player I can be – keep getting better, keep working harder every day,” Farrar said. Whatever the future brings, I’ll hop on it then, but for now, I’m just trying to be the best I can be and help us win a championship.”

quickly.” As the top step in NASCAR’s “Home Tracks” program, the K&N Pro Series has become a launching pad for developmental drivers looking to move into the three national touring series. Among its alumni are current Sprint Cup drivers Joey Logano, Kevin Harvick and Martin Truex Jr., as well as 2011 Daytona 500 champion Trevor Bayne and other young up-andcoming talents such as Austin Dillon and Ricky Carmichael. Hunt knows he has a long way to go before he can be men-

tioned in the same sentence as those racers, but he’s willing to do whatever it takes to get there. It’s the same message he shared last week with the students, many of whom are also high school seniors and preparing to embark on their postgraduation lives. “It almost makes it easier talking to kids because I can relate everything to my own life,” Hunt said. “I’ve had to make a lot of sacrifices that most kids don’t and I’ve had to grow up faster, but it’s been a good thing for me.”

try to get pressure on them as much as possible, so we could prevent them from trying to do any damage. And I think for the most part we succeeded at that.” In boys action, Atlee handed #5 ranked Hanover a 1-0 loss in a typical intensely physical game between the two rivals. In the second period, Atlee junior Connor Hulser scored the lone goal of the game. Hanover got a combined 10 saves from keepers Tommy

Hurst (8) and Ben Mcllwayne (2).

and thinking that they’re going to do it again here without working,” Farrar said. “You’ve got to work hard, you know.” The hard word was evident against the Patriots as he found a way to recover from his firstinning troubles. Farrar gave up a double to George Mason shortstop Brig Tison, walked right fielder Dan Schafferman, then gave up another double to designated hitter Zack Hegleson. Hegleson’s double drove in Tison and Schafferman for the game’s only runs and brought VCU pitching coach Shawn Stiffler out to the mound. Keyes said Stiffler wanted to settle Farrar down. “He was rushing and jumping – jumping at the plate trying to rush the ball up there, Keyes said. “That settled him and he got a little more aggressive with the pitch-calling instead of

where Hunt found himself more than a second off the pace in practice on a track he had never even seen on television. “I told my guys on the radio, ‘I have no idea what I’m doing here,’” Hunt recalled with a smile. “Every track is going to be something new; that’s what it’s like when you’re a rookie on any series. Following guys who have been doing it for a long time is the way to get up to speed

for one and I could beat her,” Reifner said. “So I beat her, took her to the left and just shot for the corner.” Though his team took the loss, Brocious was pleased with the play of his Hawks. “We knew that the majority of the play was going to go through the middle with Reifner. We made it a game plan that we would

JMU adds Scott to staff Former UR coach will coach Dukes’ tight ends By John O’Connor Media General News Services There was no doubt that former University of Richmond football coach Latrell Scott wanted to return to coaching. It was just a matter of where and when he would get the opportunity. The answers are James Madison University and Friday. Scott, who resigned as UR coach last August after being charged with DWI in Henrico County, has been hired as JMU’s tight ends coach. “When I look to fill a position on our staff, I always want to fill it with the best available coach and I believe we have

done that with Latrell,” JMU coach Mickey Matthews said in a school release. “He has a proven ability to coach and recruit and comes highly recommended by everyone and every place he has been. “He has made some mistakes and has taken responsibility for them. He is an excellent teacher and recruiter and we are extremely happy to have him in the JMU Nation.” Scott, a Lee-Davis High and Hampton University graduate, directed the Spiders to a 6-5 record in 2010, his first season as a head coach at any level. Named UR’s coach on Dec. 15, 2009, Scott at the time was 34 and Division I’s youngest head coach. Scott, now 36, resigned on Aug. 23, 2011, after being charged with DWI. He was found guilty in November, and

has completed a 10-day sentence that was required because Scott previously was convicted of DWI while a VMI assistant in 2004. Scott could not be reached for comment on Friday, but in the JMU release announcing his hiring, he said, “The one thought I have is to be the best coach and recruiter I can be and to be a good example for the members of the present JMU team. I am excited to get on the field and coaching again.” He worked on staffs at UR, Western Carolina, VMI, Tennessee and Virginia before being hired as the Spiders coach. The Dukes meet the Spiders on Oct. 20 at UR’s Robins Stadium. John O’Connor is a staff writer for the Richmond Times Dispatch.

Local players have big weeks Walton breaks R-MC hits record while Mayers turns in monumental performance Contributed reports Last Tuesday afternoon, Randolph-Macon senior first baseman Jordan Walton broke the R-MC career hits record as the Yellow Jackets topped ODAC rival Virginia Wesleyan 10-5. Walton broke the record with a single to right field in the top of the ninth inning. The Lee-Davis alum passed Greg Meleski (2006-2009) with his 196 career hit in a Yellow Jacket uniform. This Saturday RandolphMacon host rival HampdenSydney in an ODAC doubleheader, 1-4 p.m. The University of Richmond Spiders baseball team posted its first walk-off win of the season on Friday afternoon, defeating Atlantic 10-rival Xavier, 2-1, in 10 innings.

JACOB MAYERS

JORDAN WALTON

Junior Jacob Mayers (5-2) was tremendous for the Spiders on Friday, tossing a 10-inning complete game. Mayers (Hanover), who earned A-10 Pitcher of the Week honors, allowed just one unearned run on two hits while matching a career-high with 11 strikeouts. The Mechanicsville, Va. native was unhittable in stretches, retiring 16-straight XU batters at one point. The 10-inning, complete game effort

is the first in the modern era for Richmond baseball. “What Jake did on the mound today was the most dominant and impressive pitching performance I have seen in collegiate baseball,” Richmond head coach Mark McQueen said after the game. “Jake was absolutely terrific today.” Richmond travels to Charlottesville to take on Virginia on April. 17 at 6 p.m.
