return before the School Board on May 14 with recommendations pertaining to the approved budget. The school district will experience a short-term temporary Virginia Retirement System cost savings of about $6.7 million. State revenue reductions to the county school system for next year total $15.2 million and are offset by the $5.4 million from the General Assembly’s action. With the $1.37 million in additional budget, the district has what Thornton called “capacity/flexibility” for 2010-2011. He also said there should be minimal additional state revenue reductions in Fiscal Year 2011-2012. Noting a $117,000 increase in the estimated debt service costs (expenditure) and local transfer for debt service, Thornton said the anticipated budget that was being submitted to the Board of Supervisors was $179,007,351.

2 administrators recognized by School Board

Brunetti’s Restaurant Events Mon Tues Weds Thurs

The recent injection of funds from the Virginia General Assembly into Hanover County Public Schools’ 2010-2011 budget could restore as many as three dozen classroom positions. That’s what Dr. Stewart D. Roberson, superintendent, told members of the Hanover County School Board during the April 13 regular meeting. He said he expects “the $1.37 million will be directed as indicated to mitigate job loss and we would expect that that mitigation job loss will occur by restoring positions that were slated to be cut.��� Michael Thornton, assistant superintendent of business and operations, updated the School Board on the budget process and “indication of what’s coming in the next month or so.”

On Jan. 24, the School Board adopted a budget based on former Gov. Timothy M. Kaine’s proposal, which was submitted in December. The March 14 adoption of amendments by the General Assembly was followed on March 24 with the Hanover County Board of Supervisors receiving a presentation from County Administrator Cecil R. “Rhu” Harris Jr.’s office. The county had been notified that the General Assembly had approved more than $1 million each for the county and school system. The supervisors conducted a public hearing on March 31 and adopted the budget for Fiscal Year 2011 on April 14. Speaking the evening before the supervisors approved the county budget, Thornton said they would be dealing with the amendments “that were the result of General Assembly action taken in early March.” Thornton also said Dr. Roberson will

By Melody Kinser mkinser@mechlocal.com Two administrators were among those recognized Tuesday, April 13, by the Hanover County School Board. Charles Stevens, assistant principal at Lee-Davis High School, and Debbie Arco, principal at Chickahominy Middle School, received the 2010 Columbia Scholastic Press Association’s Gold Key Award for journalism and the REB Award for Distinguished Educational Leadership, respectively. Stevens, who was named the winner of the Gold Key Award by a unanimous vote of the Honors and Awards committee of the Columbia Scholastic Press Association, has served as sponsor for the yearbook and newspaper at L-DHS. He received his

award during a luncheon on the campus of Columbia University in March. According to Hanover County Public Schools, the Gold Key was first presented publicly in 1930 and has been awarded to distinguished faculty advisers, professional journalists and others in public life who have supported the student press. It is the association’s highest honor for an individual. Arco’s honor pays tribute to principal who go beyond the day-to-day demands of their position to create an exceptional education environment. Qualities to be exhibited by the nominee include: ✏ Manage effectively to promote excellence in education. ✏ Demonstrate leadership and exemplify commitment. ✏ Inspire their students and

are advocates for their school and faculty. ✏ Encourage team spirit. ✏ Foster cooperation between the school and the community. ✏ Maintain dialogue with students, parents, faculty and staff. ✏ Have been a principal of their school for at least three years. One nominee each from four school districts -- Hanover, Henrico, Chesterfield and Richmond -- was selected. Arco, who was nominated by the school community, will receive an award of $7,500 for herself and an additional award of $7,500 for school projects to be selected by her. Beaverdam Elementary School and Elmont Elementary School have been chosen to receive the 2010 Title I

Distinguished School Award from the Commonwealth of Virginia based on student achievement during the 20082009 school year. The award recognizes Beaverdam and Elmont for achieving a mean score at the 60th percentile on both English and matehmatics; meeting AYP (Adequate Yearly Progress) two consecutive years without the safe harbor provision or proxy percentage for all students and in the subgroups; for reaching full accreditation in the second year of making AYP; and exceeding the annual measurable objectives (AMO) for all students in English and mathematics for the past two consecutive years.

Kaine reflects on lessons learned By Jim Ridolphi news@mechlocal.com

After 16 years in public office, former Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine readily admits he doesn’t have all the answers, but he has learned a thing or two in his decade and a half of public service. On April 12, the current head of the Democratic National Committee reflected on his life as a public servant and packed all of that experience in five lessons learned. He delivered that message to alumni, students and friends at Randolph-Macon College’s Blackwell Auditorium. Kaine’s background may have made him the least likely candidate for elected office, coming from a home where politics was far down the list of priorities. “I came from a home where politics was never discussed,� he said describing his childhood in Kansas City, Mo. After earning a B.S. in economics, Kaine entered law school at Harvard, but took a year off to work as a Roman Catholic missionary, running a small school for teenage boys in Honduras. He graduated from Harvard in 1983, beginning a 17-year career as a civil rights lawyer in Richmond.

Jim Ridolphi

Former Virginia Gov. Timothy M. Kaine was the keynote speaker on Monday, April 12, at Randolph-Macon College.

Kaine entered politics on the local level, something he suggests as an appropriate path to higher office. He served four terms on Richmond City Council, including two terms as mayor of the city. After serving as Mark Warner’s lieutenant governor, Kaine was elected to Virginia’s top spot in 2006. The former governor said many people

are scared off by the bare-knuckled reality of politics, or what they perceive the arena to be. “Public service is a noble pursuit and the system works only when good people step forward,� Kaine told the audience. Kaine’s second nugget of advice was something he learned in his law practice. “You have to be willing to lose. Some people would rather quit than lose.� He also said losses in his legal career and in politics only made his resolve to accomplish goals stronger, and he urged students to keep their eye on a goal and pursue it. “Go after stuff and go after it until you get it.� The former governor cited the recently enacted smoking ban in restaurants as a prime example of what tenacity can yield. After several failed attempts to enact the ban, Kaine’s persistence finally paid off. “You have to have a willingness to put it all on the line and lose.� Another important lesson on Kaine’s list was the realization that the voting public will eventually get it right. “People are smart,� he said. “They figure things out eventually. They really do get it.� see KAINE, pg. 21 `

OPINION | The Local Views From the editor

Working on series provides a sense of knowing the victim With today’s second installment in an ongoing series of cold cases from the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office comes the feeling of having known the victim. These articles have offered a glimpse of how involved law enforcement officers become in the pursuit of justice. During the interview for this month’s story about Theresa Baker, the commitment by Capt. Michael J. Trice, Sgt. Eddy Smith and Investigator Kevin La Plaga was obvious. Theresa’s remains were interred in an unmarked grave at Roselawn Cemetery. Her body had not been claimed, so then-Sheriff Harold Bradley spearheaded efforts to provide a proper burial. Visiting the cemetery in search of her final resting place a couple weeks ago was marked by sadness and the reality of a life ended far too young. Theresa was only 24 at the time of her death. Since meeting with the deputies on April 5, so many questions remain, but the feeling of knowing her is unmistakable — and unshakable. This series has been eye-opening in several ways. Most notable at this point is the relationship the deputies forge with the victims and their families. Even though Theresa Baker was killed almost 25 years ago, solving her case is as important as if it was reported yesterday. The dedication to bringing justice to Theresa — and every victim — is paramount and it is with respect for those officers that this is written. They pursue every clue, every lead. With Theresa’s case, there are suspects — and hopefully resolution. And one can’t help but feel a kinship as the story unfolds.

Volume 22 No. 7

From the Principal’s Office The month of April has provided students and staff with the opportunity to rest and relax over Spring Break, and now we need to prepare our students for the upcoming state-mandated SOL testing, as well as AP and IB testing that must occur before the end of the school year on June 18, 2010. As we tackle this task, we want to remind you of ongoing efforts to prepare our students for success on these assessments. Beginning April 19, students in English, Math, Science and Social Studies will complete the third benchmark exam, designed to gauge progress and identify potential problems for students in SOL-tested subjects. Tests are administered online in each core subject. Between the benchmark and the SOL testing windows, tutoring programs are offered before and after school for students in order to prepare for the upcoming SOL tests. SOL testing will begin May 10 and conclude May 27, 2010. The bell schedule and any changes made to the school daily schedule will be communicated via the school’s website, the Principal’s Blog and through the email connection system through HCPS. Students have been invited to take advantage of various tutoring opportunities that will help them continue to prepare for academic success, including the math tutoring center during study halls and the before- and after-school sessions. Parents can help to ensure that their students are present and on time every day; schedule medical appointments after 3:30 p.m. when possible; eat a healthy breakfast every day; get at least eight hours of sleep

Celebrations... Congratulations to eleventh graders Danielle Pusey and Kevin Anderson who were selected from applicants across the state to attend the Virginia Junior Law Cadet Program. This summer residential experience, sponsored by the American Legion and the Virginia State Police, consists of an intensive five-day session in which participants are exposed to many facets of law enforcement. Thanks for representing Lee-Davis so well! Congratulations to freshman Amber Carroll for placing in the Top Three for the state Youth Awareness competition. To date, Amber has earned scholarships from the Richmond-East Moose Lodge and the state association. She has also been invited to compete at the international student conference being held in Indianapolis at the end of April. At the international she will have the opportunity to compete for scholarships ranging $2,000.00 to $12,000.00 Senior Rebecca Cross also participated in the program again this year and will be awarded the scholarship from the lodge, as well.

Rotarian John Monacell, on behalf of the Rotary Club of Mechanicsville, recently presented a check for $38,548.34 to the Hanover Safe Place.

Representatives from Hanover Safe Place, an organization dedicated to helping victims of domestic abuse, attended the Rotary’s breakfast meeting. Brenda Cowlbeck, president of the Rotary Club, said the money was raised through the hard work of club members and from strong community support.

sive.” Without confirming any suspects, the three officers did say they are pursuing new leads in the case. According to Laplaga, Theresa got a ride with two acquaintances the night she disappeared. The acquaintances, who later returned to Theresa’s residence in the 7100 block of Midlothian Turnpike, said she had been dropped off in the area of a Midlothian night spot known as Johnie’s at 4400 Jefferson Davis Turnpike. “An independent patron saw her a few hours LAPLAGA later at D’Angelo’s,” another Midlothian night spot, Laplaga said. She was last seen around 2:30 a.m. in the 4500 block of Jefferson Davis Turnpike. Theresa was reported missing on Sept. 24, 1985, to officers with the Chesterfield County Police Department. With her body being found in Hanover County, the Sheriff ’s Office entered into a joint investigation with Chesterfield authorities. “We recovered the remains,” Trice said. “We didn’t know a lot about what happened to her.” A statement released by the Sheriff ’s Office on Feb. 19, 1986, said the skeletal remains had been identified as Theresa Lynn Boyer Baker. Her description was listed as white female, age 24, 5-foot-6, 140 pounds, with brown hair and eyes. She was the mother of two boys, ages 7 and 1, and a 3year-old girl. The older child was raised by relatives in Pennsylvania, while the younger two children were adopted by non-relatives, Laplaga said. He also said Theresa’s husband Raymond was incarcerated at the time of her death. Theresa had a sister – who, in a Feb. 20, 1986, article in the

Richmond News Leader, asked that her name not be used -- living in the area. The victim was said to be seeking employment at the time of her disappearance. On Feb. 19, 1986, the News Leader reported that Theresa “left her home Sept. 20 and took her children and some belongings to the home of her sister.” She “then left the children and belongings, including her purse, at her sister’s home and went to Johnie’s Night Club.” “Theresa didn’t have any connections to the Mechanicsville area,” Laplaga said, “so we’re hoping that this article will bring to light to people who either lived in Cherrydale or Mechanicsville or possibly visited those establishments and might have some type of recollection.” “It seems obvious that the kill-

er had a connection to both areas,” Smith added. “Mechanicsville and Hanover (County) were much different places than they are now. They were more rural at that time. We’re looking for someone who can help connect those dots for us.” Laplaga has reviewed evidence, visited the scene where Theresa’s body was found, and talked with personnel at the State Crime Lab as his investigation continues. He said he plans to “turn over every stone and make sure everything was done.” He said “a fresh set of eyes” may help the Sheriff ’s Office “get some resolution” with the case. Investigator W.L. Snelson and Sgt. H.L. Wray handled the case in 1986. Theresa Baker’s remains

were not claimed, prompting then-Sheriff Harold E. Bradley to make arrangements for her burial. She was laid to rest on June 13, 1989, at Roselawn Cemetery in Glen Allen. Anyone with information concerning Theresa Lynn Boyer Baker’s death can contact the Hanover County Sheriff’s Office at 365-6110. Information also can be submitted online to the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office at www.hanoversheriff.com.

Child Abuse Prevention Month now under way Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com

804.569.8716 www.mechcovwoods.com

April is being observed as Child Abuse Prevention Month, with individuals and organizations marking the month with public awareness efforts, the planting of pinwheel “gardens� and by distributing blue ribbons for people to wear or display. Every year thousands of children suffer abuse and or neglect by their parents, caregivers and other adults. According to data from the Virginia Department of Social Services, from July 2008 to June 2009 there were more than 47,000 children reported as possible victims of abuse and/or neglect. Of that number, 5,921 children were determined to be abused and/or neglected. Abused and neglected children are less likely to be schoolready and more likely to exhibit behavior disorders, to become teen parents, to abuse alcohol and drugs and to enter the juvenile justice system. Child abuse and neglect are often characterized as part of a cycle, because many people may act toward their children the way they were treated by their own parents. Breaking this cycle with education and resources for parents can prevent child abuse. In recognition of Child Abuse Prevention Month, the Hanover Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Program has planted a pinwheel garden in the Hanover Human Services Complex located on Route 1. The pinwheel is a new symbol for child abuse prevention see CHILD, pg. 28 `

said, “Over the last several years we have identified and assembled unsolved violent crimes cases; such as, murders, rapes and robberies. Our first step was to evaluate the investigative work that took place immediately after the crime was discovered or reported. While, in most cases, these investigations are not opened as a result of new information, it is important to evaluate historical cases and then take advantage of new investigative and forensic techniques in the hope of reaching a conclusion to this crimes. “Sergeants Eddy Smith and Patrick Lamb are responsible for pulling these cases off the shelf, assigning an Investigator, and begin to actively reconstruct them and work on them again,” he added.

here at Patrick Henry. I think we accomplished that, and, thanks to a number of volunteers and supporters, we had a great celebration. Today is the perfect ending,” Dr. Jeff Crook, PHHS principal, said. The day featured a full day of scheduled events like three-legged and potato sack races, a band concert, and full schedule of sporting events. The Patriots took on Lee-Davis in baseball, softball and soccer, adding to the excitement of the closing event. Various school clubs and organizations offered fundraising games and activities and a VCU Medical Evacuation helicopter drew a steady stream of onlookers. The Skyline Band played two sets and there was even a demonstration of the Jaws of Life. The PHHS Chapter of the National Honor Society sponsored a Dunking Booth that enticed festival-goers to take a shot at some of their favorite teachers and administrators. Former PHS principal Paul Vechione took a turn on the precarious perch and it only took sev-

eral pitches for him to feel the chill of the water. “The great thing about today’s event is that it gives all of our students an opportunity to participate and the clubs are using this as a fundraiser. So many people have come together to make this successful,” Crook said. He said the past six months of celebration has only strengthened his view of PHHS and its traditions and heritage. “We started off with the Tomato Bowl followed by a golf tournament in November and the formal celebration ceremony in March,” Crook said. Looking back, Crook said the celebration reaffirmed the sense of community and pride. “Meeting all the alumni and seeing the pride they showed in this school has strengthened my feelings about the campus. It’s a great place to be. The parents, the community, the faculty and students all have such a community spirit.” Crook said the celebration solidified Patrick Henry High’s standing in the community and allowed its many alumni to reflect on its 50-year history. “They told the story of what the school means to this community,” he said.

time each year. Or, said another way – 260 eight-hour days. However, most of us don’t work this schedule. Some time is allotted to vacation or sick leave and some to holidays. By the time we deduct these from the schedule, most employees work about 240 days each year. But, that is still lot of time. Can a couple of minutes really matter?

ager, consultant and human resources professional, I have often heard employees offer the excuse, “I was only a couple of minutes late.” What is a couple of minutes after all? Surely not enough time to change the course of business. On the contrary, small amounts of time add up when taken over a year: 52 weeks x 40 hours per week = 2,080 hours of work

Using 240 days as our yardstick: 2 minutes x 240 work days = 480 minutes in a year. Or, said another way – an 8-hour work day. Using this same formula, 10 minutes each day is equivalent to a 40-hour work week at the end of the year. The math is staggering. A few minutes here and there does matter.

Virginia community banks have always been proud to serve and support the citizens and businesses of the local communities they serve, yet a recent remarkable event caused C&F Bank to look beyond the immediate community with its “Focused on You” brand. “The earthquake in Haiti is an unimaginable tragedy” Larry Dillon, president and CEO of C&F Bank, said. “We knew that there would be men, women and children without shelter for an extended time period, and that this lack of shelter would put thousands of lives at risk; we knew it was our responsibility as a member of the business community to do something”.

Harold McLeod, left, regional president, Matthew Steilberg, senior vice president, retail banking; and Michelle Baker, service representative, Alverser Drive, are shown with the check that will help victims of the January earthquake in Haiti.

Accordingly,thebankannounced a fundraising appeal to employees, customers and neighbors to support the ShelterBox.org charity. ShelterBox survival kits contain critical items for life sustainment, including: ● A 10-person tent. ● Water purification equipment. ● Thermal blankets and insulated ground sheets. ● A basic tool kit contain-

ing a hammer, axe, saw, trenching shovel, hoe head, pliers and wire cutters. ● A wood burning or multifuel stove. Each ShelterBox contains enough of these materials to support a family of 10 for up to six months. The charity has a 10-year history of service; in 2009, it see C&F, pg. 21 `

Fundraiser set for cancer victim Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com A fundraiser will be held at 7 p.m. Friday, April 23, at Winn’s Baptist Church at 12320 Winns Church Road in Glen Allen. The fundraiser will be to help with the medical expenses for Vincent Tickle, an

Kaine’s fourth lesson learned was a pragmatic outline of how to choose your battles. “Fight battles about things that will last, things that can’t be undone,” he said. Conservation easements that paved the way for numerous state parks and other recreational facilities was just one example of what Kaine considered ‘things that couldn’t be undone.” He said Virginia’s governor is in the unfortunate position of being the only one term administrator in the nation, and the future governor or the General Assembly can easily undo most things accomplished during that term. Kaine said the smoking ban, Pre-K expansion and reform of the Foster Care Program are long lasting examples of goals he pursued that were not transitory. In his fifth and final lesson, Kaine said that politicians are “great over-simplifiers.” In that vein, he said the success of an

economy boils down to just two things: education and global connections. He cited the direct correlation between the quality of education and per capital income. Over the past 50 years, Virginia has moved from one of the lowest attendances of school age children to one of the highest rated systems in the nation. “When people have better skills, the state benefits,” he said. Expanded Pell Grant programs and state grants for private higher education are all programs that yield positive results and are a good investment for the future, according to Kaine. Virginia’s global economy sustained the economy during recent downturns, the former governor said. “We can communicate with the world with a touch of a button,” he said. Kaine said the state is in a uniquely advantageous position with an international airport and a port that ships goods worldwide. He urged students to focus on those global connections, become fluent in a foreign language, and approach the future with a realistic sense of how the

world is becoming more connected. Professor Mathias Bergman presented questions submitted by the audience for the former governor. The first question came from a person who voted for President Obama in the 2008 election, but asked why one should support Democrats again in upcoming elections. “I was promised change we can believe in and we got more of the same,” the question read. Kaine pointed to the stabilization and gains in the stock market and the increase in job

including the bank’s donation. This money will purchase 35 ShelterBoxes, or enough materials to help take care of up to 350 people for six months. “Our purchase of these life-sustaining items is directly in line with our corporate mission of Focused on You” Dillon said. “We are so proud of our employees, customers and neighbors who graciously supported this cause. We also

feel that ShelterBox is a smart choice for donors since funds are directly used to purchase these valuable survival kits – you know exactly what your money is buying”. C&F Bank was founded in 1927 and serves customers through its 18 branches, located from Richmond and along the Interstate 64 corridor, Williamsburg, West Point and the Peninsula.

creation as positive accomplishments of the current administration. Kaine said he has become close with the president since he was elected DNC chairman a year ago. “People in this country will no longer go bankrupt because of illness,” Kaine said. R-MC president Robert R. Lindgren welcomed Kaine to the Ashland campus and class of 2010 student Becky Johnsen introduced him.

Bennett Funeral Home was established in 1897 to serve the needs of Richmond families. Since then, this locally owned and operated business has continued to serve the community with its unique combination of caring and convenience. This tradition of excellence can be seen in the four beautiful chapels located throughout the Richmond area: centrally located on Cutshaw Avenue in the city, on Broad Street Road past Innsbrook, on Ashbrook Parkway in Chesterfield and serving the Hanover-Mechanicsville area on Lee-Davis Road. All four facilities are under the personal direction of Charles D. Morehead, President. In a time of need, you can turn to Bennett Funeral Home with trust and confidence. It serves families of all faiths with personal service, before, during, and after. There is a long tradition of professionalism and caring. One way in which Bennett cares for families is by offering a convenient and personalized pre-need program. Through this program of pre-need planning, you can spare your loved ones the burden of making decisions at an emotional time. Call Bennett Funeral Home at 746-8665 to schedule a pre-planning consultation.

Charles D. Morehead, President and General Manager, stands next to the portrait of Alphonso Winston Bennett, Founder-President 1897-1933. Now in its second Century, with 112 years of operation, Bennett Funeral Home continues its quality service in a compassionate local atmosphere.

Youth Encounter with Christ event to be held Saturday

$ $ $ $Visit $ $ $nationalredemption.com $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ for $ $ a$ coupon. $$$$$$$$$

Bluefield College is partnering with the Virginia Baptist Mission Board again to offer Virginia’s youth an encounter with Christ through a series of spring Youth Encounter (YEC) worship and adventure events across the Commonwealth. Designed to give preChristian youth an opportunity to hear the gospel and challenge current Christian youth to live out their faith more dangerously, a spring YEC event will take place in Mechanicsville on Saturday, April 24. The Mechanicsville Youth EnCounter, open and free to the public, will run from 3 to 6 p.m. at the Walnut Grove Baptist Church. The theme will be “633@3” and will come from the Matthew 6:33 scripture that calls us to, “seek first [God’s] kingdom and His righteousness.” Bluefield’s Skyline Drive will lead the worship.

Described as passionate, emotional and driven, Skyline Drive is a new positive alternative group, which offers a completely different worship experience with musical innovation and energetic audience interaction. Special guest will be Ben Glenn, also known as “The Chalk Guy” or “The Messy Preacher.” Glenn is called a powerful and entertaining speaker whose struggle with traditional learning led him to discover a love of art — a love he turned into a dynamic live art demonstration where he literally whips together a beautiful drawing in less time than it takes to eat a sandwich. The spring Youth EnCounters are co-sponsored by Bluefield College in Bluefield and the Emerging Leaders Team of the Virginia Baptist Mission Board. For more information, call 276-970-0593 or 800-2552428, ext, 2255, or visit www. yec.org.

Richmond Divas to perform A Mechanicsville woman will be performing next Wednesday as part of a tribute to Broadway divas. Cathy Motley-Fitch will join Debra Wagoner and Desiree Roots as part of The Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen’s Center Season. The program is scheduled for 7 p.m. April 28. Individually, the three women have performed in Europe, Fiji, New York, Nashville, Sun Valley, Atlanta,

Washington, D.C., and Richmond. Next week’s performance will be their first together. Completing the diva night will be pianist Sandy Dacus, also of Mechanicsville, as musical director and accompanist. As part of Minds Wide Open: Virginia Celebrates Women in the Arts, the arts center is located at 2880 Mountain Road. For tickets, or more information, call 261-ARTS (2787) or visit www.artsglenallen.com.

Perfect Confederates down undefeated Patriots Madison keys victory with 4 RBI’s By Jim Ridolphi sports@mechlocal.com There wasn’t much on the line — just a celebration-sized dose of county pride. Patrick Henry High School entered Saturday’s matchup with Lee-Davis High School with an undefeated record and a chance to sweep its county opponents for the first time in recent memory. Unfortunately for the Patriots, it was not to be as they were defeated by Lee-Davis, 7-0. The game had the feel of a playoff match even though the opponents compete in different districts. Add to that the fact the game kicked off a day-long Spring Fling at Patrick Henry High School, and it added to a big contest for both squads. “It’s always a big game for us when we play them,” L-DHS coach Jackie Davis said. “We

started getting ready for this one as soon as the Deep Run game was over last week.” Last week’s player of the week, Emma Mitchell, was on the mound for the Patriots, but her counterpart turned in the championship performance. Sophomore Kelly Heinz recorded 11 strikeouts and hit some strategic spots to limit the usually explosive Patriots to just two hits. “I made sure I was really warmed up today and it worked out,” Heinz said. “The defense backed me up on every play.” Heinz, the Confederates’ number one hurler, said holding such a powerful lineup in check is just what she needed. “It feels good,” she said. “It’s a huge confidence builder and it should help for the rest of the season.” Lacie Madison had four RBIs to lead the Confederates to a 7-0 victory that handed the Patriots their first defeat of the season. “The wheels kind of came off for us today. We made some mistakes and didn’t make the routine plays,” Patriot coach Matt Crowder said. “You have to give

them credit. When they needed to hit the ball, they crushed it.” Although the loss is big, Crowder said his team’s goals are still intact. “We wanted to concentrate on our district play and games. If we win the district, we’re automatically in the region, so we’re still on track. I told them before the game that pride was the main thing on the line for this game.” The game was knotted in a scoreless tie when the Confederates batted in the top half of the fourth inning. Meredith Holmes singled in Madison to break the tie, and L-D added another in the top of the fifth inning when Madison singled in Rachael Hawk to give the C-feds a 2-0 advantage. With a solid defensive performance in the field and Heinz throwing bullets from the mound, it was all the Confederates would need. But Madison wasn’t finished, as she pasted a long fly ball to center field that scored three runs in the seventh inning. The Confederates ended up with five runs in the final inning.

“This was a big game for us and it kind of let us know where we are at this point in the season and how far we’ve progressed,” Davis said following the win. “I was really pleased to see us come out aggressive and hit the ball well and played solid defense behind Kelly who had a great game on the mound.” Davis said the game is a good indication of what this team is capable of achieving. “We’re improving every time we step on the field and these non-district games are important because we get to work on some things. Today we changed the lineup around to see how it would work,” he added.

Gridiron players sticking to new sport Submitted by Deane Cheatham

Hanover juniors Shreve Rohle and K.J. Weatherspoon are both well known for their prowess in the Hanover Hawk’s Defensive Backfield. Both are two-year starters for the defending Central Region Division 5 Champion Hawks; football team and have seen time at corner and safety. This spring, in addition to their strenuous early morning football workouts, they have decided to try a new game-lacrosse. “This game is fast and tough. You better be in shape if you are going to play lacrosse” said Rohle who has found a home as a starting midfielder and faceoff man for the Hanover Club. Also a starting midfielder, Weatherspoon agreed. “I’m having a lot of fun and it has

really helped me with my position and footwork for football,” he said. “We have been playing some 7-on-7 (football) on the weekends and I can feel the improvement with my one-onone coverage.” After four games both have proved to be significant contributors to the Hanover Club. “When the ball hits the ground those guys are on it” said Head Coach Stuart Jones. “The determination and intensity that they bring over from the Hanover H.S. Football program is evident in everything they do.” Rohle and Weatherspoon join Matt Pocta, David Crytzer, and Stuart Mains as football/ lacrosse athletes. “KJ and Shreve are leaders on our football team and they have quickly become leaders out here” Crytzer said. “Stu and I have played Black

Hawks (The Hanover Youth lacrosse program) since we were kids, but these guys showed a lot of courage to just come out and give lacrosse a try.” The first challenge was learning the rules of the game. Between the third and fourth quarters of the Atlee game the referee took Weatherspoon’s stick in order to check if it was within legal specifications (at each break in the game the Referee inspects a stick from each team at random). Weatherspoon ran back to the team huddle in a panic and reported, “some dude just took my stick.” After a good laugh, the other players explained that the referee would return the stick once he finished the inspection. “My teammates have gotten a lot of mileage out of that one,” Weatherspoon said. For Rohle there was a seri-

Local track stars stand out at Florida Relays Submitted by Anne Bishop

Three athletes from Mechanicsville, along with their families, and their coach, Kyle Bishop (Atlee High School and Aim High Pole Vault Club), traveled to Gainesville Florida over Easter weekend to participate on the 66th running of the Florida Relays. In her first college outdoor meet on Friday April 2, 2010, one of the only freshman participating in the event, Atlee High School alumnus, and threetime State champion, Emma DeJarnette, traveling with the Va Tech track team, took 10th place in the women’s college pole vault. Also on Friday April 2, Atlee High School junior Chris Pillow went up against Florida’s best high school pole-vaulters, most of them seniors, and took 3rd place with a jump equal to his personal best height of 14’6”.

ous learning curve regarding the rules of the game as well. “I would be playing and all of a sudden whistles would blow, people would be yelling, and everything would stop. Next thing you know- I’m in the penalty box and I would have to ask someone to explain what I did wrong”. The second challenge was developing the skill of catching and throwing with a lacrosse stick. “I jog around the neighborhood with my stick and a ball so I can get used to it”

Weatherspoon said. “I feel like I get a little better every day, but I still have a long way to go.” Some teams have underestimated the two rookies because of their inexperience. “Its pretty obvious when you watch us play that we are new to the game, but we have both scored goals and are close to leading the team in ground balls,” Rohle said. “When it comes to physical side of the game, I can promise you that we never shy away from contact. “I think lacrosse will help me

as a football player because I am going to be in better shape,” he added. “This is a tough, physical game and the running never stops. I will certainly appreciate the time off between plays during football season.” Both young men say they would encourage other football players to give lacrosse a try. The opinion of Hawks’ head football coach, Josh Just? “I think it is great,” he said. “Any time kids get a chance to compete in an intense sport out side of football they learn things they can’t pick up anywhere else.” Just also believes the skill development will help his two defensive backs this fall. “The body movements and actions are very similar in the two games,” he said. “I also like the hand-eye coordination that lacrosse requires.” With eight games left to play, Rohle and Weatherspoon are both very excited to see what the rest of the lacrosse season will bring. “We are having a lot of fun out here this spring” Weatherspoon said. “There is no doubt in my mind that we will be ready to play football this fall.”

Atlee picks up Capital District victory over Hanover By Dave Lawrence sports@mechlocal.com Atlee center fielder Chop Pulisic worked hard in the off-season to improve his swing, and Friday night the hard work paid off. Pulisic went 3-for-4 and scored a run. His offense, combined with solid pitching by Atlee starter Luke Bolka and reliever Ryan Bettinger – who combined for eight strikeouts while holding Hanover to just two hits – ensured that the Raiders ran down the Hawks and remained undefeated in Capital District play with a 2-1 come-frombehind victory at Hanover Friday night. “I had a pretty solid day today,” Pulisic said. “I feel I really helped our team to a win. I worked hard in the off-season and it’s really helped me to change my swing. I’ve been hitting much better” The Raiders (4-0 Capital, 6-4), however, started the game rather meekly. After Pulisic, the leadoff batter, reached first on a single, a strikeout and two groundouts left him stranded. In the bottom of the first inning, Hanover (1-2, 7-2) managed to take a 1-0 lead without any hits. Hanover shortstop Andrew Knizner drew a one-out walk, first baseman Jared Lipscombe reached on an error, and catcher Eric mayers walked to load the bases. One out later, designated hitter Bryan Lowery walked to bring Knizner home. Twice more, the Hawks would have men on third

42

base, but both times they failed to score. “We were getting on base, but they were making timely pitches and we didn’t have very good situational at-bats,” said Hanover coach Charlie Dragum. “A couple of times we had men on third with less than two outs and we just couldn’t score them, which is a bad sign. In high school baseball, you should be able to score those runs.” Atlee did a much better job in scoring situations. Pulisic singled with one out in the third inning, advanced to second on second baseman Paul Keye’s groundout to the shortstop, and scored on first baseman Austin Young’s single to center field. The Raiders earned their go-ahead run in the fourth inning. With one out, right fielder Brent West singled, Farrar doubled, and Conner Overton drove West in on a groundout to second base. In the seventh inning, Atlee third baseman Conner Hall took two for the team – twice he was hit by pitches from Hanover reliever Jacob Smith, but the first time the umpire ruled he leaned into the pitch. The second time, Dragum tried to argue he leaned into the pitch again, but the umpire allowed him to take first. Unfortunately, Pulisic grounded out – the first time he failed to reach first base the entire game – before Hall had a chance

The Mechanicsville Local

to score. What was important, however, was Hall’s defensive contribution in the bottom of the inning as the Hawks tried to rally. Bettinger gave up a leadoff double to Hanover centerfielder Bryan Johansen. Johansen advanced to third on a groundout to Bettinger by left fielder Zach Broaddus. Knizner then hit a grounder to Hall. Johansen had not advanced very far down the third

baseline, and Hall quickly threw to catcher Mitch Keeler, stopping Johansen’s progress home. “I was just playing baseball. I’ve done it a hundred times before. It’s just another part of the game that has to be done,” Hall said. “I just saw that [Johansen] was far enough off the bag that I could make a play on him. I knew we could get him in a rundown and I knew we could make the play because we practiced

it. There wasn’t a whole lot of thinking going on. It was just reacting.” Johansen cut back to third, but Keeler tossed the ball back to Hall. When Johansen broke for home again, Hall threw to Bettinger, who was now in position to keep Johansen from scoring. Johansen stumbled, and Bettinger ran him down before he could reach safety. “I just saw the runner going home, and the third baseman threw it to the catcher. I knew we got him right there, because

we’re good at rundowns,” Bettinger said. “I saw him slip up in the corner of my eye when I was catching the ball. I just went after him, went all out and tried to tag him.”

to have it in place. Many of these unsung heroes will not be properly recognized until after everything is said and done, but there are occasions where proper respect and recognition is given where it is due. One such event took place last weekend at the Atlee Little League Baseball fields where field #1 was officially dedicated as Ed Landi Field. Saturda marked the opening of the 42nd year of Atlee Little League baseball, which was originally charted as Pearson’s Corner Little League. It was at Pearson’s Corner’s two ball fields where the league had its early beginnings. In 1972, the name of the league was changed to Atlee Little League and moved to Washington Henry Elementary School, where three minor league fields were used. Shortly afterward, a big league field was added on New Ashcake Road where New Highland Baptist Church now stands. It was not without difficulty that the quiet and soft spoken Ed Landi, unaccustomed to the spotlight, walked out to be recognized and throw the ceremonial first pitch of the game dedicated on the field with his name. In the course of his 40year tenure supporting the league, Landi served as director and league president and was instrumental along with others in developing a solid foundation upon which the league has been built. He continues supporting today by way of his work done with the Atlee Ruritans who cook and sell Brunswick Stew each year to benefit the league. For those less inclined to government takeovers at any level, the independently

staffed and operated Atlee Little League serves as a true role model for other leagues and organizations wanting to duplicate successful efforts providing true community service. This thriving all-volunteer organization is funded completely by the families of the participants, with no county support whatsoever. Volunteer John Mardigian said, “Most parents get very involved with the little leagues and the football leagues, and, as the kids grow out of it, they move on to other things. Ed has always been around to show his support for Atlee Little League.” Handling the opening ceremonies, John Swiercqewski, closed by saying, “I was doing research from the archives of the Herald Progress about opening day in the Atlee Little League. I did take note that in the early days of the Atlee Little League there was a Women’s Auxiliary that held a fundraising dance each year on opening day night. And next year, Marty Wilson will be leading that out. OK, kids, let’s play ball.” “My kids -- at that time I had twin boys. They were 10 years old. They were playing ball down at Mechanicsville LL when they were eight and nine. When we went down there when they were 10 to sign them up, the president of Mechanicsville Little League, who is still active down there, a good guy, Joe Martin. He said ‘Ed, you’re in Pearson’s Corner Little League. What’s that?’ At that time the little league boundaries was 301, separated Mechanicsville from this new league, Pearson’s Corner, which was really started by a gentleman by the name of A.Q. Hance. He started Pearson’s Corner

Little League. He started Hanover youth basketball. He started Blue Star football. A remarkable feat in my estimation; and I wish he were alive today so he could be honored, because that was quite an accomplishment to do that. Without him, this may have happened, but not a soon as it did. “But all the people who lived on the wrong side, which turned out in my estimation to be the right side of 301, got together and made a fledging which grew into a large organization. A lot of people have been involved in the development of Atlee Little League. It’s been great fun for everybody involved. When you are accomplishing something, you see things materialize to the positive, it does help. Volunteerism is where it is today, and I am active in Atlee’s Ruritan Club because they volunteer to help in the community. hat is better than helping one’s fellow man? That’s what we need today. “They’ve done a magnificent job from where it started to where it is now, and there’s just so many people involved in it. A lot of them have passed away and I wish they were here today to receive honors themselves, like Charles Hunt (president for three years – he was instrumental for getting lights put on the fields) and Ken Moor, who was president in 1980 and on the School Board with Raleigh Lowe, a large landowner. It was Ken spoke with Raleigh who financed the property to us with a 10-year note. “Landi found the experience rewarding on many levels, including that of his children’s development. I had twin boys that started here when they were 10 and finished when they were 15. Then I had Steve, my youngest, who started when he

was 8 here (I think 8 was the requirement age then), until he finished with his 15th birthday and went on to play Lee-Davis baseball. Being around kids and doing something positive is rewarding in itself, and it’s been an honor to be able to serve, Swiercqewski said. Steve Landi, Ed’s youngest son, provided some insight on what he appreciated growing up on the fields of Atlee Little League. “I was happy to have grass that would actually stay in the ground. To actually have grass was a good thing playing baseball. But seriously, playing at the elementary school where I grew up at Washington Henry was nice. It was close to the house and all that, but out here it was baseball. It wasn’t a school that had baseball fields. Out here it was just baseball. And I don’t know if the parents today, or the kids today . . . they don’t know how lucky they have it, to have a baseball facility as nice as this.” Every parent wants to provide opportunities for growth in their children’s lives. Steve Landi had this to share of his father. “He was not a pushy parent. We weren’t expected to play baseball -- we just did. We loved playing. And back then, it was basically May to August. That’s all I did from May to August is play baseball, and after that it was football season, and after that it was basketball season. So, I felt like I was a more well-rounded athlete playing the three sports; however, this is what I loved. And he instilled that, but not in a forceful manner. He wasn’t one of the parents that took me to . . .well, they didn’t have special instructors back then. He threw with me in the back yard, as well as my older brothers. So, it was just fun.”
