STOPS AT EVERY HOME IN TOWN

Session’s impact on businesses addressed

Blake: retiring means time to travel, consult By Melody Kinser mkinser@mechlocal.com Since 1987 when she accepted a position with Hanover County government, Marilyn Blake has, as she said, “worn so many hats – lots of hats, lots of office, lots of titles.” She has worn the significant “hat” of assistant county administrator since 1998. On April 30, she will retire from a position that saw her make Hanover County history. “I’ve always been the only female in county government.” “I started as a full-time volunteer coordinator, an office of one,” she recently said in her office at the

government complex in Hanover Courthouse. “From there, I have just grown with the county. I have had many great opportunities to do new things.” Of her colleagues, she has literally “come up through the ranks.” “It was almost like every two years I was getting more responsibilities and a new title and really a lot of growth.” She doesn’t mind that she hasn’t had a 40-hour work week through the years. “I have a very strong work ethic. Work has been so much a part of my life.” “I really credit a lot to Jack

BLAKE Continued from pg. 1 b

Berry and Richard Johnson. I’ve worked under four county administrators – they were the two middle ones. They really had a lot of confidence in me and, I guess, understood my work ethic.” Because of that work ethic and commitment, she said the two “really gave me a lot of new opportunities and responsibilities.” As the responsibilities increased, she said “I think I rose to each one and then got another one.” When Johnson became county administrator, he opened the door for Marilyn to join his staff. As assistant county administrator, “I oversee all the human service agencies, and that’s the most difficult part for me to leave, because it’s such a critical need here in Hanover. Well, it’s a critical need anywhere, but there is so much more that we want to do and I feel really good about what I’ve done since I’ve been here. It’s a really good system and a collaborative system, which I’m very proud of, but there’s so much more to do. But I guess there’s always going to be more to do, there’s never an end. So, all I can do is be proud of what I have done.” Marilyn’s work has not been limited to Hanover County. “I have spent a lot of time on regional and statewide projects. I’m the intergovernmental person here for Hanover so I‘ve had the opportunity to really meet a lot of people in around the state in government and in nonprofits and in regional organizations.” She has been “very active with VACO (Virginia Association of Counties)” through her work in county government. “I think there’s a lot of opportunity for me now to continue doing what I really love, but doing it on a smaller than part-time basis. I don’t want another full-time job – I don’t even want another part-time job, but I would like a gig here and there.” Marilyn made significant strides for women in county government and considers herself “a role model for women here and in this profession. There aren’t very many women at this level, so I think that I’ve given some encourage. I think that I have encouraged other women to forge ahead.” To those she has mentored through the years, she has maintained a “Never say no” attitude. “I think that’s what happened with Jack and me when he was county administrator. He would ask me to do a project and I would say I’ve never done that before. ‘You’ll learn,’ he said, and so that’s

what happened. I have never said no to an opportunity and a new project. I think that’s just a really strong message to other women and to young people that are coming into public administration.” With retirement, she plans to share her expertise in consulting capacities. “I hope to use those contacts and those opportunities – I’ve already gotten a couple of feelers from people who have said ‘When you retire will you come help do something?’ ” “I’ve also done a lot of event planning. I was the chair for the 2007 National Association of Counties Annual Conference that was held in Richmond. It was huge. I loved it. I met a lot of people — I mean it was just fabulous and it was a very successful conference.” Attendance for the conference was more than 3,500. In 2008, she chaired the International CountyCity Management Association Annual Conference in Richmond, which attracted

“One of my reasons for retiring is to spend time with him (husband Harry) — in the good times. We’re both very excited about that. Spending time together is going to be wonderful.” MARILYN BLAKE Assistant county administrator

4,000 people. “So I now have a reputation that I can do big event planning.” A recent compliment came from James O. McReynolds, the county administrator in York County, who said Marilyn “could bring together four people or 4,000 people and facilitate a good meeting.” “Before coming here I did a lot of nonprofit training, facilitating,” Marilyn said. “I also can do training on volunteerism, which is going to be great.” She called the volunteer program in Hanover County “robust” and said she is “excited about going to other local governments and other places to help enhance volunteer programs around the state.” “I also have worked very closely with the Board of Supervisors. When I came up here that was part of my job – to be the liaison to the Board of Supervisors. So I also am looking forward to going around the state and doing strategic planning, supervisors’ meetings and retreats.” In 1982, Marilyn left Dallas, Texas, for Richmond. She came to Virginia for a director’s job with a nonprofit. “I did that for almost five years and then was just look-

ing for something different.” That “something different” came her way when she saw an ad in a newspaper. “When I saw the ad, I had no idea where Hanover was,” Marilyn said with a grin. “I was in Henrico, a West Ender, so I came out here for the interview and they liked me and I liked them and the rest is history. So I now love Hanover County.” Life for Marilyn may have started in Texas, but the Richmond area “is home to me now definitely. When I came here in ’82 they were filming a movie about (President John F.) Kennedy’s assassination in the streets of Richmond. They said they were filming here because Dallas had looked like that 20 years earlier.” Like the communities and counties that make up the Greater Richmond area, Marilyn said “I feel like I’ve really grown with the metropolitan area.” Beaming, Marilyn talks about the main reason she is looking forward to retirement. It’s her husband Harry, who is already retired. They won’t be sitting home though. The summer is filled with travel plans, including a woodturning event in Raleigh, N.C. (Harry turns wood into fountain pens and wooden pens), a cousin’s wedding in Chicago, Hartford, Conn., for a Woodturners Association symposium and to Harry’s native New Hampshire to visit family. Before they return home, they also plan to visit Gettysburg. “We’ll be taking our time and we’re both looking forward to it – a lot.” “One of my reasons for retiring is to spend time with him – in the good times. We’re both very excited about that. Spending time together is going to be wonderful.” Due to her many work-related responsibilities, Marilyn said she “never had the luxury of time to travel.” She welcomes the notion “that we can go whenever we want to and come back whenever we want to.” Harry often joined Marilyn when she participated in or traveled to governmentrelated meetings. “My husband is the only male spouse, so I believe he loves that. And I believe that the ladies love that because he hangs (with them) when we go to a conference. For Hanover, he’s always been the only male, so it’s been a good partnership. It really has a been a great partnership.” “He is so supportive, just the best,” Marilyn said of Harry. “He’s let me grow with the county and it’s been really wonderful, because, you know, I don’t think you can get from volunteer coordinator to see BLAKE, pg. 8 `

OPINION | The Local Views From the editor

Coal is a way of life for many in West Virginia Dark. Damp. Deadly. Those three words quickly came to mind on Monday, April 5, when news about the mine explosion in West Virginia flashed across the TV. The body count continued to grow as the evening progressed. Coming from the coalfields of southern West Virginia, it was an automatic move to keep close tabs on Web sites. Sometimes you just know the news isn’t going to be good. Guess that too comes with having spent almost five decades in and around coal mining communities. There’s a strong sense of unity among neighbors in coal-dominated communities. As a child, it was common for most men in the neighborhood to work for the same company. Many times, that company was within walking distance from the houses. Reading, listening and watching the reports left a void on Tuesday as families learned the tragic fate of their loved ones. The opportunity to travel down into the earth to see the operations first-hand was offered in the 1980s. It may not have been the best career move to decline, but it was the choice made. From here, the notion of making a living underground may seem unfathomable. Throughout West Virginia, it is a way of life. It’s generational. And, sadly, sometimes it’s fatal. In the wake of this latest disaster, let’s remember lives lost and those left to mourn. And memories of coal linger . . .

Etc. ☞ Ashland residents Sue Forbes Watson and Diane H. Ager will be recognized on Friday, April 23, with the YWCA Outstanding Women Awards at the Greater Richmond Convention Center. Hanover County support is expected to be strong for these two deserving women, who are being honored for education and religion, respectively. Hope to see you there. Melody Kinser

Monarch Stories By Pastor David Crisp, Senior Pastor

I

want give you a “follow-up update” on an article I wrote in March in which I told you about the possibility that the Jewish Sanhedrin might sacrifice a Passover lamb on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Several of you have e-mailed me wanting to know my sources for that article and whether or not the sacrifice actually took place. The main source for much of my information came from the March edition of “Prophecy in the News” magazine. I checked the validity of the information in that magazine and found several confirming articles about the Korban Pesach event in secular Israeli newspapers such as the Jerusalem Post and Haaretz. From what I can glean from Israeli news sources to date, the sacrifice did not take place. A lawsuit was filed seeking to bar the Sanhedrin from carrying it out and a judge granted an injunction on the day of the event preventing it on the basis of “security concerns.” I appreciate all of you who have keenly been following this story and have shown such interest! Even though it did not happen, the very fact that it almost did, illustrates just how close we are to meeting our coming King!

E

ach spring in our daycare, our kids get a chance to be eyewitnesses to a miracle. Our director purchases “butterfly kits” – jars filled with tiny fuzzy worms… with worm food included! The children (and their parents!) become fascinated, waiting and watching each day as the tiny little caterpillars rapidly grow, attach themselves to the ceiling of their enclosure, seal themselves into a cocoon coffin and, after many days, finally emerge, miraculously transformed into beautiful butterflies! The word biologists use to describe this process is “metamorphosis.” That is also the word Paul used to describe and encourage a change that needs to take place in us. “Do not be conformed to the pattern of this world but be transformed (from the Greek: “Metamorpho”) by the renewing of your mind!” (Romans 12:2)

J

esus was the first – he died and was placed in a tomb (cocoon) then, on the third day, He rose again with a new glorified body never to die again! Because he died and rose again, someday we will literally have a “caterpillar to butterfly” metamorphosis! Those who believe, even though we may lie dead in the dust of the earth, when the trumpet call of God sounds we will break forth from our cocoon graves and go from being “worm food” to butterfly-like flight - meeting Him in the air in the twinkling of an eye!

B

ut that change is not the one Paul was referring to. We will indeed someday have a literal physical metamorphosis at the last trump, but the change Paul was talking about was one that is spiritual not physical –a change that comes from embracing our new identity in Christ. “If any man is in Christ he is a new creation. The old has passed and the new has come!” (2Cor. 5:17) This inside-out transformation begins at salvation and deepens as we “offer our bodies as living sacrifices.” In other words, when we yield completely to Christ, “dying to self.” See the cocoon? When we yield to Him and allow our mind to be renewed by the living word of God, we “put off the old man and put on the new man which is being made in the image of Christ!” (Eph. 4:22-24) See the butterfly? This transformation just as spectacular and no less miraculous than the metamorphosis that our little caterpillar friends are experiencing right now under the wide-eyed scrutiny of preschoolers witnessing God’s hand in action!

N

ow, what would you say about a butterfly who chose to live a caterpillar existence? Never spreading his beautiful wings, never taking flight to soar and smell the roses, he just continued to live like a caterpillar crawling around with the worms. I’d say that butterfly was allowing the world, his peers, his circumstances and his old identity to mold, shape and conform him into the old pattern. Many Christians do the same. Behavior flows from identity; we act like who we believe we are. So, who do you believe you are? Are you a saint? Are you a holy one? Are you chosen and dearly loved, forgiven, transformed, enabled, competent… more than a conqueror? The Bible says you are all that and much more in Christ!” Are you living out of your new “butterfly” identity or is your behavior flowing from your old “caterpillar” one? I suppose sometimes even butterflies feel like they are still ugly caterpillars, but their feelings are not the reality. The reality is: they have been changed forever…and so have we! So, regardless of how we feel, let’s quit worming around and spread those beautiful wings that Jesus paid so much to give us!

some questions on just how the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office handles pursuits and how we work across inter-jurisdictional lines. In late 2003, members of the law enforcement community representing the City of Richmond Police Department, Henrico Division of Police, Chesterfield Police Department, the Virginia State Police, and the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office held a number of meetings on how we would deal with police pursuits and “especially as they crossed into surrounding jurisdictions.” Each listed law enforcement agency brought their pursuit policies with them and a matrix was made from these policies which listed the pertinent points that any pursuit policy should have in place. Some of these points included: 1) the reason for the pursuit; 2) the time and location of the pursuit, i.e., school zones, shopping areas, etc.; 3) the volume of traffic at that particular time; 4) the time of day; 5) does the officer have a license plate that can be followed up on later; and 6) does the offense, if known, justify the pursuit, etc. In addition, the policy dictates the number of police vehicles that can actually be engaged in a pursuit. We, like most all of the other jurisdictions, restrict the number to no more than two (2) police vehicles engaged at a single time. Once we cross into another jurisdiction and we have one police representative from that

jurisdiction engaged, one of our police vehicles MUST disengage. As the pursuit continues into a second jurisdiction, then our remaining vehicle MUST disengage. The intent is to keep the number of vehicles actually in pursuit restricted to the least number necessary to affect an arrest and to be present when the pursued vehicle is actually stopped in order to protect the safety of the pursuing officer. Once the policies were reviewed by the law enforcement executives and the matrix put together, subsequent training was held to “train the trainers” of all of the jurisdictions mentioned above. This was accomplished throughout each of the law enforcement agencies and the “regional pursuit plan” was agreed upon by each chief of the participating agencies. The plan has been working as intended. As the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office just achieved international and state reaccreditation, it must be noted that the Regional Pursuit Plan was reviewed in detail by our assessors on both occasions and overwhelmingly approved by the assessors as meeting mandatory requirements set forth by their respective organizations. While our surrounding agencies are also accredited through either the international and state organizations, or both, they too have been subjected to this same review. I wish to assure our citizens that I, nor any other chief law enforcement officer, take police pursuits lightly. We all shudder any time one of our offi-

cers announces that he or she is engaged in a vehicle pursuit and are immediately concerned about the safety of that officer and our innocent citizens. I wish that we would never again have to become involved in pursuits, but I also know that the reality of it is that there are certain citizens in every jurisdiction that believe that he or she is above the law and will blatantly violate every law we have and never once give second thought to his or her actions. We cannot allow the criminal element the freedom to make a mockery of our lawabiding society and have law enforcement stand by and do nothing. Our officers have been provided the best training and best policy guidelines and I have confidence that all of this is taken into consideration when the decision is made to engage in or to terminate a pursuit. The records of the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office reflect sound judgment and the application of this extensive training as each pursuit is reviewed in detail. While we habitually inform surrounding jurisdictions of our impending DUI checkpoints and invite them to participate, in the future we will not only notify them of the DUI checkpoints but of ALL checkpoints regardless of the nature if they are within a close proximity of their jurisdictional boundary. This has already been discussed with the Henrico Division of Police and it will become a part of our written policy.

U.S.-Israeli talks require solutions When President Obama meets with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu on May 18, it is critical that he recognize that the challenges require new and pragmatic solutions. Time and again Israel has made painful sacrifices for peace only to have more of their innocent civilians killed. The Middle East needs “win-win” solutions, not more of “Israel’s pain, no one’s gain.” Today Iran is working to build nuclear weapons while arming, funding and training Hamas and Hezbollah. They must be stopped! After being forced to defend their citizens from Hamas rockets, Israel unilaterally ended its 22-day defensive efforts in Gaza just hours before President Obama was sworn in as president. Israel took these steps in the hope that — with a new American president — Iranbacked terrorists in Gaza would stop shooting rockets into Israel. Since President Obama was sworn in on Jan. 20, 2009, Iransee LETTERS, pg. 13 `

She said she is “a little sad leaving because for 23 years this has really been my family, my friends, my life, but it’s time to spend with him (Harry), spend time for myself.”

Raymond S. Ruffin, 97, of Henrico County, formerly of Hanover County, passed away on Saturday, April 10, 2010. He was preceded in death by his wife of 69 years, Clara Flowers Ruffin. He is survived by two daughters, Carolyn R. Jeter, and Ray Lynn Newcomb, both of Henrico County; three grandchildren, Michelle J. Lodato and husband, Matthew, of Herndon, Va., Scott A. Newcomb of Richmond, Va., and Kenneth M. Jeter Jr. of Midlothian, Va.; one great-granddaughter, Savannah C. Jeter of Sterling, Va. All his life, Mr. Ruffin loved designing and building things, and got to experience the thrill of being part of the early days of radio, refrigeration, television and eventually laser technology. As a young boy, he built one tube radios for family and neighbors, and eventually worked for WMBG in Richmond. He then helped build and operate see OBITUARIES, pg. 31 `

backed terrorist groups in Gaza have fired more than 200 rockets and mortars at Israel. Additionally, Hamas continues to hold Israeli Staff Sgt. Gilad Shalit in captivity after kidnapping him nearly three years ago in an unprovoked cross-border raid on Israel in which the terrorists killed two Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers and wounded four others. Shalit’s captors, ignoring the Geneva Conventions, continue to deny the Red Cross access to the wounded soldier or provide any other information about Shalit’s welfare. At the 1993 Oslo Accords, Israel and the Palestinians agreed to a “land for peace” framework for ending the conflict. Although Israel carried out phased withdrawals from population centers in the West Bank and Gaza, the Palestinian Authority failed to fulfill its security commitments to disarm and dismantle terrorist groups. In 2003, Israel agreed to implement the Roadmap to Peace, a performance-based document

that provides a framework for a two-state solution and calls for an end to Palestinian violence and terrorism, including requiring all Palestinian institutions to end incitement against Israel. However, while Israel’s schoolbooks teach tolerance, Palestinian textbooks, media and official cultural events continue to promote and celebrate terrorism — even among children. In 2005, under the leadership of Likud Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, Israel unilaterally withdrew 9,000 of its citizens from the Gaza Strip and parts of the West Bank, a move that cost Israel approximately $2 billion. The objective was to turn land over to Palestinians and jumpstart a two-state solution. Instead, Iran-backed Hamas seized control of Gaza in a bloody coup against the Palestinian Authority, and, along with other terrorist groups, fired an estimated 7,000 rockets, mortars and missiles into Israel. Iran-backed Hamas still controls Gaza and its actions are devoted to the destruction of Israel. Hamas’s charter states, “The time will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews

(and kill them); until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him!” In August 2006, following international pressure and the international community’s promise to keep Hezbollah from rearming, Israel signed a ceasefire agreement ending its defensive campaign against Iran-backed Hezbollah in Lebanon. Israel signed the ceasefire hoping it would lead to peace. Instead, Hezbollah used the agreement to refresh and increase its weapons arsenal: Before the conflict, Hezbollah had 10,000-15,000 Iranian- and Syrian-supplied rockets and missiles. Today Hezbollah has a stockpile of about 40,000 rockets and missiles, demonstrating that the international community’s promises to meet Israel’s security needs were not kept. Despite the Palestinians’ failure to end incitement, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman and Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon both have agreed to honor the Roadmap. The time for pragmatic steps towards peace is now. Dr. and Mrs. Charles Morris Louisa

Animal Control boosts week The Hanover County Animal Control is proud to support National Animal Control Appreciation Week (April 1117). This is a week to celebrate and give thanks to the women and men of the animal control profession who work tirelessly for the improved welfare of animals and people. Animal control professionals in Hanover County and Virginia provide an invaluable service to the citizens of the Commonwealth. Enforcement of animal laws, rabies prevention, humane education and the care of stray animals are just a few of the many services that animal control professionals do on a daily basis. Each day these men and women go to work knowing the difficulties they will face, the challenges they must overcome. They ask for little but will work tirelessly to make a difference in the lives of animals and people. Within their minds and hearts they have a collec-

The distinguished Bosch race will also be aired live on the Speed channel. As part of a special topics course at the college this spring, led by Kelly Schwendeman, JSRCC automotive program

head, students have been learning about the complexities of motor sports cars. In addition to having the Porsche outfitted with the Reynolds logo and colors during the race, several automotive students recently toured the Synergy Racing shop and received a hands-on look at the Reynolds Porsche. “Careers in the auto industry run the gamut from handson diagnostics and repair to advanced engineering and complex systems design,” Schwendeman said. “Students can work on the shop floor or in the corporate board room.

Jonathan Bottoms, 12, of Mechanicsville, won a first place award in “To Our Children’s Children: The Battle of Hampton Roads Juried Art Competition,” which opened March 5 at The Mariners’ Museum in Newport News. His entry was entitled, “Battle Relief.” Chloe Shermer, 9, of Mechanicsville, won a third place award in “To Our Children’s Children: The Battle of Hampton Roads Juried Art Competition,” with the entry “Battle Relief.” The art show, “To Our Children’s Children: The Battle of Hampton Roads Juried Art Competition,” charged contributors with depicting the famous standoff between the USS Monitor and the CSS Virginia on March 8 and 9, 1862. The show drew 125 entries from children 4 to 18 years old. Entries came from as far from the museum as Washington state, and as close as the Riverside neighborhood of Newport News. Winners

were announced at a reception March 5; the exhibit remains open through Aug. 15. Jonathan, 12, won first place in the 8- to 12-year-old category. The son of Norman and Taina Bottoms of Mechanicsville, he attends Liberty Christian School in Mechanicsville. Four other Liberty Christian students placed in the competition. Shermer, 9, daughter of Samuel and Rebecca Shermer of Mechanicsville, won third place in the 8- to 12-year-old category. Maggie Dzierzek, 9; Josh Huber, 13 and Jacob Giannini, 11, all were honorable mention winners. Judges for the event were Jeff Johnston, historian, NOAA’s Monitor National Marine Sanctuary; J.

Also, since Mechanicsville does not allow for burning, I have no other choice but to carry my yard waste to a landfill. Again, I feel that these restrictions are unfair based on the fact that the only other choice is to take my waste to the main solid waste facility off of U.S. 301. The problem with this facility is that it is not open seven days a week and closes at 4 o’clock when it is open. I get

off work at 5 o’clock, so the use of that facility is not an option. I would like to see if this restriction can be lifted at the solid waste facility on Verdi Road to accommodate those of us who work during the day or that the main solid waste facility off of 301 can have longer hours to serve the public. I am a voter that votes in every election! Thank you for your attention to this matter. Joseph E. Molnar Mechanicsville

Between one and three pumps are sufficient before completing the greeting. 5. Remember that everyone matters. Show your â&#x20AC;&#x153;best self â&#x20AC;? to everyone in the organization. Be gracious, polite and thank the receptionist, administrative assistants and others with whom you interact. They are often solicited by the hiring manager and/or human resources for their opinion and a description of your behavior when you were not interviewing. 6. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;? are more than yourself. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s savvy employers are looking past your physical self to get an impression of how you will perform as an employee. Perspective employers may

look at your social networking sites as well as inspect the car you drive to the interview to gain information. Make sure that all things connected to you are neat, clean and professional. In todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough job market, the littlest things may make the difference in your landing the job you want. Practice your introduction and handshake with a friend and give some careful thought and time to your grooming and you will create a positive first impression.

business leaders an opportunity to question their representatives on changes and amendments that affect their operations. Cox said any chance to speak directly to citizens is an opportunity worth taking. “Most importantly, it’s an opportunity to make myself available to listen to local citizen input,” he said. “These events let citizens hear directly from their elected officials as to what is happening with their government(s) that may impact their lives. Therefore, I think it is vitally important to attend these events and make myself available to speak at many various engagements such as Ruritans, Rotary, Kiwanis Clubs and civic

associations or just about anywhere that Hanover citizens gather in order to better represent their interest in the General Assembly,” he added. “After all, the seat I am privileged to occupy is the people’s seat and I am merely the representative of the people’s business of the 55th District and it is imperative that we have an open and clear discussion with one another to efficiently represent the people.” Peace agreed. “With so much focus on Congress and local government’s school or law enforcement budgets these opportunities provide business and community leaders meaningful information about state government,” he said. Cox said the recent General Assembly session confirmed what Virginia lawmakers already knew. The state con-

tinues to record decreased revenues in a time of economic downturn, leaving this year’s legislative body with two choices, raising taxes or cutting state spending. “In a bipartisan agreement, the General Assembly chose the second option, to reduce the size of state government and refrain from further increasing the tax burden on Virginia citizens,” Cox said. Balancing the budget also was on Peace’s list of key legislative issues. “The state balanced a $4 billion shortfall in revenues without a tax increase. Simultaneously the car tax relief was also preserved in spite of the worst economy in 70 years,” he said. Cox said another pressing issue that affects businesses is transportation and that’s a problem that must be addressed.

“The budget crisis overshadowed any other major issue this past session, but we need to find a way to fix our transportation infrastructure problems that have been left unattended at this point. It may require a special session called by the governor . . .,” Cox said. He also cited reform in state government as a top priority. “With the reduced operating budget, we need to reform state government in a major way and I think Gov. McDonnell will lead the way in that effort with help from a group he is putting together to consider the best and most efficient way to accomplish that goal with as little impact on the average citizen.” Sen. Ryan McDougle, R-4, also participated in the program that attracted about 60 local business leaders on April 6.

Hanover County implements optional review process for site plan approval

FOR SALE

Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com Hanover County is temporarily implementing an optional expedited review process for site plan approval to assist developers, businesses and their plans preparers during this economic downturn. While the review workload is at a reduced level, it is practical for the county to apply its resources to help its partners in the business community accelerate the initial stage of the review process. The current process has built-in features to expedite resubmittals, based on the quality of the first submittal and the resolution of initial deficiencies prior to the second submittal. The initial segment of the process allows about three weeks for reviewers to complete their plan review and send out their comments. There is then

If you are delivering your plans by courier or some other second party and wish to have the review expedited, you may simply provide a transmittal slip or letter stating such with your name and contact information so that we may verify your request. If you have questions as to whether the expedited process may be best for your project, contact Mary Pennock, the project manager in the Planning Department, as well as Mike Nannery and/or Randy Hardman, the engineering managers in Public Utilities and Public Works, respectively. The pre-application meeting, which the majority of applicants utilize, also is a good time to discuss this option and whether to choose this program at the time of formal submittal.

Deadline nears for snow disaster public assistance Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com Thursday, April 15, is the deadline for counties, including Hanover, and private nonprofits to submit Requests for Public Assistance (RPAs) for damage resulting from the Dec. 18-20, 2009, severe winter storm and snowstorm. According to the Virginia Department of Emergency Management (VDEM) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Virginia became a presidentially declared disaster area on Feb. 16. “It is important for every eligible locality or private nonprofit organization with snow

damage to get help. Some local officials and organizations aren’t aware they may be able to receive reimbursement for their expenses recovering from the storms,” commonwealth coordinating officer Michael M. Cline said. Eligible applicants include the commonwealth, local governments and certain private nonprofit organizations. The funds are available on a cost-sharing basis, for emergency work and the repair or replacement of facilities damaged by the storms. Funds also are available to designated jurisdictions for emergency protective measures (Category B), including snow assistance.

Famous painting was inspired by Confederate captain’s Hanover burial By Jim Ridolphi news@mechlocal.com It’s an image that is engrained in the memories of anyone growing up in Virginia through much of the 20th century. The Burial of Latane’, painted by William Washington in 1864, depicts a small group of Southern women and children assisted by slaves as they bury a fallen hero. The portrait stirred a sense of commitment in the South and a realization of the true sacrifices made by Southern women during the war, and the death of Capt. William Latane’ of Essex County, a member of the Ninth Virginia Cavalry, Company F, is a story with deep Hanover roots. The site of Latane’s burial lies just east of Studley Road in a small cemetery on Summer Hill Farm. For years, the former doctor and Confederate officer rested peacefully in the family cemetery in an unmarked but well maintained grave. That all changed Saturday when members of the Capt. Wm. Latane’ Camp #1690, Sons of Confederate Veterans, dedi-

cated a headstone to the fallen officer, complete with full CSA military honors. Almost a century and a half after he fell on a field not far from the plantation, more than 100 family members and friends gathered to unveil the stone marking the spot the famous painting portrays. The story of Latane’s death is an intriguing tale of irony, bravery and dedication. Following the incident, news of the funeral was published in the Richmond press, and the account immediately drew the admiration and respect of fellow Southerners for the women who buried Latane’. But the story begins much earlier in 1862 when Union Gen. George McClellan moved his Army of the Potomac to the Richmond area in the Peninsula Campaign. The city seemed in hopeless peril when Gen. Robert E. Lee assumed command of the Army of Northern Virginia after Gen. Joseph E. Johnston was wounded in battle. The situation called for a flair readily supplied by flamboyant Southern cavalryman J.E.B. Stuart, who assembled his band of horsemen and rode around the Union Army, supplying important intelligence and enemy positions and strengths back to Gen. Lee. The ride was a legendary moral boost for the South and a strategic success, but not without cost. Latane’ assumed command of a squadron when another leader was absent from the mission. The captain, a former Essex County physician, encountered Union troops near Old Church and some accounts tell of his being shot as many as five times after a furious hand-to-hand battle with the Union commander. Latane’s brother, John, removed the dead captain from the field and proceeded to the nearest plantation to arrange a proper funeral. Westwood, still standing today, and its owner, Mrs. William Spencer Roane Brockenbrough, assumed

the responsibility and called for slaves from the neighboring Summer Hill Plantation to build a coffin. Mrs. Willoughby Newton of Summer Hill reportedly read the scripture while children and slaves bowed their heads in reverence as Latane’ was laid to rest. A poem written shortly after Latane’s death and published that summer, coupled with the 1864 painting, evoked a sense of deep pride in the patriotism of Southern women and offered solace to the widows of slain soldiers who found peace in the fact that strangers would take care of their husband’s remains. Members of Latane’s family offered floral tributes to the fallen captain, and members of the St. Andrews Legion played an appropriate collection of songs on the bagpipes. Jefferson Ellett of Latane’ Camp #1690 said the spirit and sacrifice of Latane’ deserves more than just a moment of reflection. “We stand here today on hallowed ground. He was a Virginian. He was an American hero and a child of the Almighty.” Allen Mock, representing the Virginia Society Military Order of the Stars and Bars, offered a moving tribute to the Confederate officer that captured the mood of the ceremony. “Men like Capt. William Latane’ often go without notice of recognition in today’s world,” Mock said. “They offered a service for their country and asked for nothing in return. Capt. Latane exemplifies the very best of the Officers Corps of the Confederacy.” Featured speaker Arthur Taylor, Hanover Historical Society president and former Capt. William Latane’ Camp #1690 commander, delivered a detailed account of the incident in which Latane’ was killed and his eventual burial. “The ladies of the South did what they are known for today. They took care of what had to be done. The ladies buried him

right here where we stand at Summer Hill.” Summer Hill Farm is still owned by the Newton family and many members attended the ceremony. Descendants of Latane’ also attended the event, and one said it was his first visit to the gravesite but not his first attempt. Lawrence Latane’, a former staff writer for the Richmond Times-Dispatch, said he was glad to finally find the actual gravesite. “I had driven around one time years ago trying to find it and found Summer Hill,” Latane’ said. “I saw this grove of trees from the road and assumed it was the graveyard but wasn’t sure.” Like many Southerners, Latene’ is familiar with the famous picture. “I grew up with it hanging on the wall, but this is my first visit to the site,” he said. Latane’ now farms in Westmoreland and never envisioned such an elaborate ceremony for his great-great-uncle. “I never thought I’d be standing here at an event like this, but I am impressed and I think they did a great job.” Regarding the painting, Latane’ respects its impact and unique place in the legacy of the Confederacy. “It kind of romanticized the war, and it’s a unique piece of art,” Latane’ said. “It’s an odd piece of Virginia and most people in this area know something about it.” The painting originally hung in a Richmond studio, but was moved to the State Capitol to accommodate the large viewing public. In 1868, A.G. Campbell produced a steel engraving of the painting with Washington’s approval. Today, the engravings sell for thousands of dollars on Internet sites and many Virginia homes still prominently display the famous icon. While reports vary, the original “Burial of Latane’ ” reportedly hangs in a private residence in Gloucester County, but Lawrence Latane’ cannot confirm that. “I’ve never seen it.”

A 112 Year Tradition of Caring

Four juvenile Hanover students who authorities say were victimized by a teacher and his school-nurse wife testified for the first time on Thursday, sitting within feet of the accused couple. Each of the victims, some in tears when they left the courtroom accompanied by friends and family members, testified in Hanover Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court at a 2½-hour preliminary hearing. The proceeding was closed by the judge to the media and the public.

The exclusion was sought by the prosecution and defense lawyers under a statute that allows a juvenile-court judge to permit juvenile victims in sex-related crimes to testify in private. Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Shari L. Skipper declined comment on any portion of the testimony, saying only that Judge Michael HuYoung found sufficient cause to certify charges against Craig and Angela Linnon, 49 and 44 years old, respectively, to a grand jury. The Linnons, married in April last year, lost their jobs at the Hanover Center for

Trades and Technology after their arrests in January. Each faces five felony counts of taking indecent liberties with a juvenile and one felony count of using an electronic device to solicit a juvenile. Authorities say the offenses took place late last year at the school and at the couple’s home in the 9300 block of Guenevere Place. Both Linnons, who have been released on bail, face up to 35 years in prison if convicted on all counts. The case could go to trial sometime this summer. Angela Linnon is the mother of four children.

Latrell Scott takes to the field with Spiders Players and fans enthusiastic about local connection By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com On Saturday, over 2000 football fans showed up at UR Stadium to get a glimpse of the future and say goodbye to the past. The annual Spring Game marked the final football competition for the Spiders in the historic city stadium and the debut of new head coach Latrell Scott. Hanover County residents Louis and Lois Willis, both UR alumni were among those fans in attendance and have attended every home football game for over two decades. After 20 years, both said it was a little sentimental bidding farewell to the stadium. But getting a look at the new on-campus facility makes them anxious for the fall to come. “Lois works at UR so we go there a lot and take advantage of the facilities and have watched the new stadium come up,” Louis said. “It’s so impressive that it kind of makes it easier to leave (here).” Lois agreed. “Since I work there, we’ll go by at least once or twice a week to take a look,” she said. “We walked through twice just to kind of get an idea of where we’d like our seats so I’m

looking forward to it.” Another thing the couple was anxious to see was how their Spiders would look with former Lee-Davis player Latrell Scott at the helm. “It’s good having Hanover boy here,” Louis said. “I hear he’s a long time Hanover (resident) too so that’s got to be good.” Louis felt an immediate connection to the new coach, through co-worker Robbie Chenault, who played along side Scott with the Confederates. Lois feels that Scott may bring a closer connection between the University of Richmond and Hanover County. “It was kind of neat to have a local guy here and maybe

he’ll bring more local kids to school here. Recruit more kids from Hanover, Patrick Henry, Lee-Davis,” she said. Another football fan looking for a closer connection between UR and the county was Hanover head football coach Joshua Just. “I was just wanting to come out and watch it real quick,” he said. “I had a break in the day between T-ball, youth soccer and track so I figured I’d come out and catch them before I go back out.” Just not only wanted to see new quarterback, USC transfer Aaron Corp, but get a feel for how his own Hawk player matched up with the Spider talent.

“I just want to see these guys on the field and see if our guys can play on this level,” he said. “I think some of them can.” Just also believes Scott’s hiring at UR will bring more football enthusiasm to Hanover. “We have a bunch of Lee-Davis guys on my staff so it’s pretty exciting for them having a local guy take over the program,” he said. “It’s pretty exciting for the whole county.” Likewise, Spiders who played at local high schools, such as senior Kevin Grayson and redshirt sophomore Harry Lee Daniel have also enjoyed the connection to the area. “It feels good having a coach

from the area,” said Daniel, a former standout at Highland Springs. “He understands the kids, from where we grew up at. He understands what we’ve been through with being students in the area. So he knows us. He treats us with respect and he’s a great guy.” As an LC Bird alum, Grayson said his first meeting with Scott was lightheartedly confrontational. “We talked some trash my freshman year when we first came in,” he said. “Me and (Eric) McBride, we’re definitely saying that LC Bird was the best school around the area.” But that has changed since Scott has moved to the head

coaching position. “It’s great with a guy who’s been around the area,” he said. “He knows the things that we’ve gone through at high school and things like that. So it’s always good having a guy like that here.” Grayson also pointed out that Scott’s transition to the head coaching position has been a smooth one. “I think the transition’s been easy with Latrell Scott coming back,” he said. “A lot of the older guys, he’s been around this program back when we came in as freshmen so, I don’t think it was that hard of a transition. “A lot of the coaches, the see SPIDERS, pg. 40 `


Rousing reversal

Early setbacks served only to motivate Hawks’ LaVey state tournament celebratory dinner at IHOP—and downing a few glasses of chocolate milk, a Hanover wrestling favorite— he took five days off before getting back on the mat. “It makes everything more exciting,” he said of his status as a returning state champion. “It makes you want to keep going because you know someone out there is working hard and trying to get better than you.”

2010 Times-Dispatch All-Metro wrestling team

By Jim McConnell Media General News Services Gabe LaVey wasn’t surprised when he didn’t earn a spot on the Spring Grove (Pa.) varsity wrestling team for the 2007-08 season. Having started wrestling in the seventh grade as a way to stay in shape for football, LaVey had far less experience on the mat than most of his fellow competitors. Besides, he knew that only the most gifted freshmen make the varsity in talent-rich Pennsylvania. LaVey turned the experience into a positive. He decided to learn as much as possible from his time with the JV. And he made a commitment to work hard to improve. After relocating to Virginia, he finished fifth for Hanover High School at the 2009 Group AAA wrestling tournament. LaVey used the result as motivation and immediately set out to win a state title. “I knew it was going to be tough here—not as tough as Pennsylvania, but still tough,” said LaVey, Hanover’s first state wrestling champion and the Times-Dispatch 2010 AllMetro wrestler of the year. “But I had high expectations for myself, that I should do well wherever I am.” With his lofty goals in tow, LaVey simply immersed himself in the sport. When he wasn’t wrestling, he was usually eating or sleeping. He practiced tirelessly at local clubs and attended several high-level tournaments, seeking competition that would force him to raise his game. He also took a long, honest look at himself, and realized the only way he was ever going to get where he wanted to be

Hanover’s Gabe LaVey rode a commanding performance at the state Group AAA meet to the 135-pound crown

as a wrestler was by getting better on his feet. Mission accomplished. LaVey was all but unbeatable in the 135-pound weight class this season, going 48-4 and winning his second consecutive Central Region title before cruising to his first state championship. He pinned two of his four opponents at the state meet, won his final match 6-0 and wasn’t threatened at any point. “It was indescribable . . . one of the best feelings in the world,” LaVey said. For another perspective on LaVey’s season, consider this statistic: three of his four losses came at the Beast of the East in Delaware, one of the most competitive high school tournaments in the country. He set a goal to not lose again after the Beast and reached it without much difficulty. “He was pretty dominant on his feet, to the point where

he could let people up and just keep taking them down,” Hanover coach Aaron Bradley said. “There wasn’t anyone in Virginia who could really challenge him.” LaVey, of course, is already looking for his next challenge. He has a chance to join Bradley and Hanover assistant coach Adam Britt as a twotime state champion. Anything less, Bradley said, might be a disappointment. Bradley noted that LaVey is competing at a level where another state title is as much an expectation as a goal. “He definitely has a higher ceiling to reach for,” Bradley added. “His goals now are to win and place at tournaments against guys who could be state champions in other states, and we’re putting together a schedule to prepare him for that.” LaVey, who hopes to wrestle at West Virginia University, didn’t wait long to begin getting ready for his senior season. After enjoying a post

in state tournament as sophomore, took game to another level this season. Won second region title and rolled to first state championship, improving career record to 93-13. Kyle Locke Weight class: 189 School: Hanover Year: Senior Record: 42-9

Brotherly shove

Atkinson’s incentive is a desire to beat his twin 2010 Times-Dispatch All-Metro boys indoor track and field team

By Michael Phillips Media General News Services When Michael Atkinson started running track at Atlee, his twin brother, Marques, decided to join the team as well. “I just wanted to see if I could beat him,” Marques said. The answer, at least for now, is yes. Marques turned in a 500meter dash time of 1:05.53 during the winter season, edging out the second-place finisher in the standings by 27-hundredths of a second. That runner was Michael. The two have taken over the local track scene since arriving, and still have another year to go running for the Raiders. They

helped bring home a state title this year in the 3,200 relay, running tremendous legs to lift No. 9-seed Atlee to the title. But it’s all-around dominance that earned Marques Atkinson the title of TimesDispatch indoor track athlete of the year. He finished in second place nationally in the pentathlon at the season ending National Scholastic Indoor Championships in New York. It’s a grueling five event test that left the normally unflappable Atkinson exhausted. “Usually I’m in pretty good shape, and I don’t ever get sore,” he said. “After doing that I was sore in areas I didn’t even know I was using.” He’s not going to stop there,

position coaches, I think they did a good job of incorporating us into their schemes, keeping the schemes a little bit the same so we wouldn’t have to do too much change,” Grayson added. “So I think the transition for the team has been a positive one.” Daniel agreed. “Every transition you’re going to have some adjustment time but once we got to know the coaches, the respect level, you gain respect day by day so it’s been a pretty smooth transition.” Daniel also likes the style of Scott’s leadership. “He’s a real hands on coach,” he said. “He’s going to tell you the truth. He’s going to tell you how it is. He’s not going to sugar coat anything. But he’s also going to encourage you. He’s going to try to make you the best person he can make you. And being his best has already brought a change in Daniel’s playing plans. Though was a wide receiver during his days at Highland Springs, Daniel has made the transition to linebacker this season on the suggestion of Scott’s coaching staff. “I gained a little bit of weight over the semester so they felt like this would be the best chance for me to step on the field and play immediately,” he said.

Grayson compared Scott to former UR head coach Mike London. “He’s a young guy so it’s high energy,” he said. “He’ likes doing everything fast. So pretty much we just do everything as fast and as fun as possible.” In the Spring game, the Spiders defense dominated a rebuilding offensive line to win the game 54-23 under a modified scoring system. Scott’s evaluation of his defense? “I’m glad those guys are on my team,” he said. “Coach (Bob) Trott did a great job with those guys. They’re playing fast. They’re playing physical and they’re flying around. Some games, we may have to win them 3-0 so whatever it takes to win.” Scott came into his first contest looking for execution rather than outcome. “I wanted to make sure we could get lined up,” he said. “I wanted to make sure we could execute and I wanted to make sure we could play hard. Most of all I wanted to get through it injury free.” And how did he evaluate his own performance as a first time head coach. “Well, just like the team does, I’ve got work to do, things I could do better,” he said. “At the end of the day we’re going to go back to the drawing board make sure I’m doing things the right way. Make sure out staff ’s doing things the right way and make sure our team’s doing things the right way.”


Multi-task master

Jackets’ AD retiring Not much Golden doesn’t do for L-D Kanach helped R-MC By Vic Door Jr Media General News Services Randolph-Macon Athletics Director Denis Kanach has spent the past four decades — roughly two-thirds of his life — in and around the arena of intercollegiate sports. Now, he says, it is time to hand the ball to someone else. Kanach, who has served as the Yellow Jackets’ AD since 2004, said yesterday he intends to step down at the end of the academic year. “Virtually everything I’ve done for the past 40 or so years, I’ve done with my career in mind,” said Kanach, 62. “Now it’s time to do something for me and my family. I want to be able to spend time with my wife and my [four adult] sons and my [six] grandchildren while I’m still healthy enough to do it. I’m very much looking forward to that.” Kanach said he began to reassess his priorities after he and his roommates from Manhattan College gathered for “a Big Chill reunion” last summer. “Of all of us, I was the only one who wasn’t retired. Everyone was looking at me like, ‘What in the world is wrong with you?’ ” Much was right about Randolph-Macon’s athletics programs in Kanach’s six years in Ashland. Under his guidance, the Yellow Jackets achieved consistent and at times significant success. Among the highlights: _ Appearances in the NCAA Division III Final Four by the women’s (2005) and men’s (2010) basketball teams; _ The selection of R-MC basketball player Megan Silva as the Division III female athlete of the year

Randolph-Macon Athletic Director Denis Kanach will retire at the end of June.

(2006); _ Nine ODAC championships in six sports. The achievement of which he is most pleased, however, is one that occurred off the field. Kanach said Randolph-Macon has integrated athletics and academics “about as well as it can be done, in my opinion.” He said he is proud of the team championships and individual accolades earned by RMC’s athletes. But he is no less proud that “when I walk into a faculty meeting—and yes, I attend faculty meetings — I can do it with a clear conscience. I don’t have to avoid eye contact with anyone.” Women’s basketball coach Carroll LaHaye served on the search committee that hired Kanach from Georgetown University in 2004. Kanach, she said, “has done some amazing things for this department in a few very short years.” LaHaye, called Kanach “a coach’s AD. He’s always there if you need him, but he lets you do your job the way you think it ought to be done.” When Kanach informed her of his decision to step down, LaHaye said, “My first reaction was purely and completely selfish. I said, ‘Oh, no. You can’t.’ ” R-MC officials said the process of selecting a replacement will begin soon.

The mathematics of track and field are relatively simple, says Neil Matthews, the coach at Lee-Davis High School: Uncommon talent plus uncommon drive plus uncommon commitment equal Montasia Golden. “She’s remarkable. She’s a special kid— the kind of athlete and the kind of individual that comes down the pike only once every so often,” Matthews said. Or, at Lee-Davis, once every three to four years. When Confederates multi-event standout Rachel Butler departed for the University of Nebraska in 2008, Matthews said, “I figured, ‘Oh, man. Now what? It’s going to take four, maybe five people to replace her.’ Then Montasia showed up and I took one look and said, ‘Oh . . . OK . . . maybe not.’ ” “Maybe not” has since morphed into “definitely not.” Golden, a lithe junior, does everything except drive the bus and measure shot and discus throws for Lee-Davis’ girls. She was chosen as the Times-Dispatch’s female indoor track athlete of the year after a sterling winter season during which she won five individual events at the Capital District meet and two (with two runner-up finishes) at the Central Region meet. She won the triple jump with a leap of 40-43:4 and placed in the top five in two other events at the State Group AAA meet. But while versatility is her calling card, enthusiasm for her sport may be her most valuable ally. Said Golden, who was introduced to competitive track and

field while attending Stonewall Jackson Middle School: “I’ve always liked it, but now I’ve learned to love it. And I’m not talking just about my events. It’s everything. What are [the Confederates’ weight throwers] doing? What are the distance girls doing? I absolutely love all of it.” Well, almost all of it. Golden’s proficiency at multiple events frequently requires her to be—almost literally —in two places at one time. She has achieved a delicate peace with the demands of incessant multi-tasking. “When I was younger, I felt like I was being pulled here, there, all over the place,” Golden said. “Sometimes it was hard to deal with.

Raiders goes south in North/South Tournament Atlee rolled for three straight losses By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com The Atlee baseball team came into last week’s North/South Tournament on a high. With an undefeated record and big wins over county rivals Patrick Henry and Lee-Davis, the Raiders looked to continue their strong start against some of the region’s top teams; #9 St. Christopher’s, Benedictine and #1 Matoaca. But instead of continuing to roll, the Raiders got rolled for three straight decisive losses falling to the Saints 11-6, the Cadets 14-0 and the Generals 6-2. Atlee head coach Kevin Elrod could not fully describe his team’s performance. “Awful,” he said searching for a description. “I can’t put it into words.” With his young team’s offtarget showing, Elrod said it is possible that Spring Break may have interrupted the player’s normal routines.

“We have a set routine getting ready for games and Spring Break always brings us out of our rhythm,” Elrod said. “It just breaks the team routine. “That’s no excuse,” he said. “We just didn’t come out to play. The kids came out flat, couldn’t make adjustments. Pitchers couldn’t hit our spots and we weren’t swinging our bats. “Kids have to mentally prepare themselves for the game and this past week I don’t think we were mentally prepared,” Elrod said. Facing an undefeated St. Christopher’s team in their Wednesday opener, pitcher Ryan Bettinger and Atlee got off to a slow start when the first two Saints’ batters reached base; Patrick Martin on a walk and Porter Reinhardt on a single to short. A pass ball by Curt Fleming recorded the first out but it also advanced both runners into scoring position. When St. Christopher’s Casey Fox sent a two-out shot

past third it was enough to bring Martin home for an early 1-0 lead. www.mechlocal.com On defense, Saints starting See slideshow online! pitcher Campbell Henkel kept the Raiders’ bats in check until late in the game. In the bottom of the first Atlee’s Austin Young was the only player to reach base when the throw to first went high. In the bottom of the second, Conner Hall led off with a single to second that was bobbled, then stole third. But a single to third by Mitch Keeler caught Hall for an out. Conner Overton, pinchrunning for Keeler was then caught in a rundown and Cody Farrar was fanned to end the inning. Still holding a 1-0 lead, St. Christopher’s broke things open in the top of the third with a run through their order. Reinhart led things off with a double to the right center fence. Next up Charlie Leffler Fleming bounced the ball off the top of the left center fence for a Atlee’s Paul Keyes, right, gets a force on St. Christophere’s William Bannard (32) at second but cannot complete the double play to first when he loses his footing.

What a difference a week can makes. Two weeks earlier, LeeDavis sophomore pitcher Jacob Perks was beside himself over a dismal outing against Varina. “He had a bad outing last week and was very bothered by it,” said Lee-Davis head coach Kenny Lewis. “He just had one of those days when he couldn’t throw a strike.” But in the opening game of the North-South Spring Break Tournament last Wednesday it was a different story for Perks as the right-hander pitched five innings of near perfect baseball against Benedictine (5-3). The C-Feds took advantage

of effective hitting with some aggressive base running to complement Perks’ peak performance to record a 13-2 victory over the Cadets. “I was very pleased with the way he came back and pitched a complete game for us today,” Lewis said. “He’s worked on some of his mechanics and it paid off for him. He’s a real competitor and I’m proud of what he did out there today.” Perks said he depended on his fastball to record most of the outs, but his curveball worked on occasion. “It came in there every once in a while, but the fastball was working for me today,” he said following the win. Lee Davis (3-2) pushed a run across in the first inning,

but the Cadets fired back in the top of the third, scoring two. Colton Konricka scored on a Chris Hogan sacrifice fly to give the Cadets a 2-1 advantage. The Confederates mounted a two-out rally in the bottom of the third to gain the lead and never looked back. Billy Steel belted a double down the left field line and Will Connerley drove him in with a single. Connerley then scored on a Jordan Boze hit and the C-Feds were up 3-2. Perks sat the Cadets down in order in the top of the fourth, clearing the way for a 10-run explosion by the C-feds in the bottom half of the inning. That rally also began with two outs see LEE-DAVIS, pg. 43 `

though. The outdoor season features the decathlon, a 10event competition. He said he’s going to start working on that, knowing that as a runner he’s got lots of training to do. His coach, Atlee’s Jim Triemplar, said that Atkinson has been putting in the work to succeed, and takes the right mindset into the events. “You could almost equate it to golf, in that you have to have tremendous concentration throughout the entire day,” he said. “He’s got a steady rhythm.” During the indoor season, Atkinson competed in events across the board, but enjoyed the most success when he teamed up with his brother. The duo teamed up with Shaowei Tu and Wes Steenburgh to record the area’s best 3,200 relay time (7:58.66), which was nearly 11 seconds quicker than the second-best school, Mills Godwin. In the 1,600 relay, it was the Atkinsons, Tu, and Matt Combs that had the area’s best mark—3:26.69. As a junior, the upside is still high for Marques. Triemplar said that he should have college opportunities down the road if he continues at his current clip. For now, he’s teaming up with Michael, and the duo hasn’t yet been passed by Central Region foes.

We love to hear from you.

With one out, Fox singled to left, stole second then reached third on a wild pitch. Drew D’Stanislao reached via walk and stole second and a walk of Duncan MacLeod loaded the bags. When William Bannard drove in Fox on a single between first and second it signaled the end of Bettinger’s day. Brent West came to the mound in relief but Seth Wagner pushed home D’Stanislao on a single to short for a 5-0 Saints’ lead. Atlee got on the scoreboard in the bottom of the third when West doubled on a shot to the center fence. With two outs, an RBI single up the middle by Chop Pulisic made the score 51. But St. Christopher’s tacked on three more in the top of the fourth. Reinhart and Fleming were drove on a double to the left fence by Henkel then Henkel himself scored on a single to short right by MacLeod for an 8-1 lead. Though the margin was the same in the fifth, Atlee began to make things interesting. With Cody Mackey now on the mound the Raiders took down the Saints order and began to

and didn’t end until the home team batted around. “I’m not sure it was as much what we did in that inning or what they did,” said Benedictine head coach Sean Ryan. “They had one of those innings where the floodgates seemed to open up.” “I was disappointed with the pitching today,” Ryan said. “We just couldn’t get that third strike in many key situations, and couldn’t get that final out in their big inning,” he added. “We just couldn’t make a quality pitch in a two-strike situation.”

generate some offense in the bottom half of the inning. Kenner Berry led off with a single to short center then reached second on a wild pitch. Overton was walked and a single to the mound by West loaded the bags when no Saint covered third. With one out, Pulisic drove in Berry when the ball was bobbled at short. It appeared it would be a new ball game when Young made solid contact but the ball hung in the steady wind, falling short of the center fence for a double that drove in Overton and West for an 8-4 score. Though they trimmed the Saints’ lead in half, Atlee could not keep them from adding to it in the top of the sixth with three runs scored on well placed hits for an 11-4 lead. Keeler and Overton added Atlee’s two final runs in the bottom of the sixth. In the nightcap, Benedictine scored 15 runs in the first three innings while holding the Raiders scoreless for the first time this season. “Benedictine really hit the ball against us,” Elrod said. On Thursday the Raiders bounced back with a strong effort against the region’s #1 team Matoaca. “I think they did Zach Joseph got the start for the Cadets’ first game of the tournament and pitchers Sam Dodson and lefty Brooks Snead also saw action late in the game. “We really didn’t want to use that many pitchers in the first game, but we’ll deal with it and see what happens later in the tournament,” Ryan said. Ryan said playing in tournaments like the Spring Break is a great opportunity for his team, and he welcomes the chance to play local public schools. “We’re excited to play in a tournament like this,” Ryan said. “We like this tournament because we always get to see quality teams and we like to

(play better),” Elrod said. “I think they got the wake up call.” However, a four run fourth by the Generals led to a 4-2 Atlee loss. “Mentally we did okay, physically we didn’t,” Elrod said. “We weren’t hitting the ball. “We beat ourselves this week and it’s all about mental preparation,” Elrod said. The Raiders have little time to contemplate their losses with a Capital District matchup against Varina on Tues. then a nondistrict game against Douglas Freeman on Wed. The week will be capped off with a big rivalry game at Hanover on Friday. “These kids go out and play their game they can beat anybody,” Elrod said. “As bad as it was, we still only made one error out of three games.” St. Christ.....…104 303 0 — 11 11 1
