Honor Flight taking WWII vets to D.C. Honor Flight, a nationwide program, takes World War II veterans to Washington, D.C., to visit the National World War II Memorial. These trips are free of charge for WWII veterans and are a way to say thank you to that generation. “Many of these veterans don’t feel they did anything special, they were just doing their job, but we at Honor Flight feel they are very special,” Dana Rivera said. “This day is a chance for these veterans to see the memorial dedicated to them before they die. These veterans are in their mid to late 80s.” According to Rivera, WWII veterans are passing away at an average of 1,100 a day. Honor Flight Historic

There also are buses leaving from Virginia Beach and Williamsburg the same day. Rivera said, “They will join up and become a total of 110 veterans making this trip with HFHTVA.” The public is invited to come out Saturday morning with their flags to help send off their veterans and salute them. From the VFW Post, the buses will take Bell Creek Road to Mechanicsville Turnpike (U.S. 360) to Interstate 295.

members and the rest of the school shared the pride of their successes. “I was really surprised that our yearbook, ‘Simplify,’ got an award,” Muse, a junior, said. “It just proved all the stress and extracurricular time that was devoted to it paid off.”

Health System, said, “Our mission is to provide exceptional, compassionate care, and we have found that this is best accomplished through engaged employees. It is our goal to create a positive workplace that values our employees, so they can then create a positive patient experience.” Judges named Bon Secours Richmond, the Richmond-based portion of the Bon Secours Virginia Health System, a Gallup Great Workplace Award winner in 2010. It was the first year the Richmond health system had applied for the award. In 2011, Bon Secours Virginia applied as an integrated health system for the first time, winning the Great Workplace Award for its combined health system. “Worldwide, there are more

than two actively disengaged employees for every engaged employee. The organizations we are honoring are ones that have worked hard to shatter and reverse what is typical and they average nine engaged employees for every actively disengaged employee,” Jim Harter, Ph.D., Gallup’s chief scientist of workplace management and wellbeing and co-author of Wellbeing: The Five Essential Elements, said. “Engaged employees are more productive, safer, more customer-centric and more profitable. They are also 3.5 times more likely to be thriving in their overall lives, experience better days and have fewer unhealthy days. In short, these winners are improving lives as they improve the overall performance of their companies.”

OPINION | The Local Views From the editor

Taking advantage of the moment The gesture was simple, sincere and spontaneous. The man in the camouflage military garb was the last to enter the elevator. And, while not known to be shy or introverted, as a rule, I try to think before I speak (that’s a story for another day). Anyway, the encounter took place at a local hospital. The soldier entered the elevator last, carrying a “Get Well Soon” balloon and other items of cheer commonly seen throughout medical facilities. It was just one of those moments. When we made eye contact, I immediately said, “I’m sorry for the circumstances that brought you here,” referring to a hospital visit and then pointed toward his military type attire, “but thank you for what you do.” He seemed startled and humbled by the acknowledgement. That was the extent of the conversation. When we exited, I saw him approach the Information Desk, no doubt for directions. I told my mother the other day that it was just one of those moments that was so spontaneous. I don’t know how many times I’ve been in similar situations with those who serve our country and remained silent. For some reason, two strangers were brought together that day in a confined space and an opportunity we should all take advantage of presented itself. While saddened by the purpose that brought me to the hospital, I felt good about taking advantage of the moment. And I’ve decided it’s a comment I intend to make more often. I think it’s a recognition we should all learn to live by. The men and women who serve our country deserve our thanks every day.

Tickets for the show will be sold at the door for $5. Tickets can be purchased in advance this week at the front office and during lunches in the Lee-Davis cafeteria for $4. Lee-Davis athletes can purchase tickets for $3 each, in advance only.

pastors where invited, most by flier but some directly and zero felt it necessary to show for this type of educational program.” He also stated a number pastors expressed how dire the situation is in America and how important these type programs are; however, even these pastors did not feel this “dire situation in America” was urgent enough to participate.

DRUG Continued from pg. 2 b

The purpose of this initiative is to provide an opportunity for citizens to surrender their expired, unwanted and/or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances. Unused prescription drugs can pose a significant threat to

So, one would have to surmise by the pastors (lack of) action that they must be comfortable with the role they are playing in our civil government. Even though the vast majority of their congregations are disturbed by the fact that there is no prayer in the schools, our school’s history books rarely if ever mention the Founding Fathers’ strong Christianity, very few if any Bibles in the public school libraries, divorce rates over 50 percent, homo-

sexuality and pornography running rampant, Islam being taught in World History classes, a country with more than $14 trillion in debt, taxpayers forced to pay for abortion, unemployment rates over 10 percent, and wars and poverty everywhere. After the initial sadness of the lack of urgency displayed by our local pastors wore off, we were treated with a program that touched most everyone. The positive energy was electric. It included a passionate

plea for God to save our nation and our churches by an evangelical missionary. A plea for pastors to please get involved by a former Richmond City Council woman. A very educational and informative video by the esteemed historian and lecturer David Barton. Prayers for all those locked into poverty, war, famine, debt, etc. And there was even prayer for our local pastors that are “locked” inside the four walls of their church, “doing the Lord’s good

work” (even though America is burning down on the outside of those four walls). God Bless us. This country is in bad shape! And very few seem to care! Elmer Brown Mechanicsville

the safety and welfare of our citizens as well as to the environment if they are not disposed of properly. Today, the nation’s fastest growing drug problem is the abuse of prescription drugs. This has led to substantial increases in the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses in our communities.

Studies show that the ease of obtaining these drugs from family and friends, as well as from the medicine cabinet at home, has led to these alarming increases. Also, many citizens do not properly dispose of these medications and often flush them down the toilet or simply throw them away in the trash.

The Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office encourages all citizens of Hanover County to take advantage of this opportunity to help make our homes, communities and environment safe from abused and improperly disposed of prescription drugs. Citizen identities will be kept anonymous.

Please keep in mind that: 3 Prescription and over the counter solid dosage medications, for example, tablets and capsules will be accepted. 3 Intravenous solutions, injectables and needles will not be accepted. 3 Illicit substances such as marijuana or methamphetamine are not a part of this

Defending conservatives I see Steve Sneed has gone off on another angry diatribe,

beating up on conservatives and Christians again. I am a conservative and I believe in God, therefore I have something to base my ideology on because a religion has moral principles upon which one can anchor their life. Atheism, on the other hand, has nothing to support any moral or physical belief. Conservative principles always work every time they are tried. They are what built see LETTERS, pg. 13 `

this country, from its founding till the beginning of the 20th century, that is when the progressives started to take over and it has been downhill ever since. We have not had a free market since Woodrow Wilson was president. On your rant about abortions, Mr. Sneed, what about personal responsibility? Do you think that if that were taught by parents that the need for an abortion would be nil? Yes, if one took responsibility for oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actions instead of the liberalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; idea of me first, I can do whatever I want and someone else will fix it. Do you think that it is compassionate to purposefully create a demographic of the population to depend on a government check for their livelihood in exchange for a vote? That is

what the liberals have done with welfare. As to your rant that Europe is better than the U.S. is just false. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s take health care, the overall survival rate for breast cancer in the socialized countries is under 60 percent; in the U.S. it is over 75 percent. The economies of European countries are close to bankruptcy because of their high unemployment, government dependency and over the top pensions. The best anti-poverty program going is a job, and this government is doing its best to kill jobs and create another demographic of people dependent on a government check. Less government regulations, low taxes, a return to free market principles will create all the jobs necessary to recreate American exceptionalism again. Let us get back to equal opportunity for all without

EMERGENCY COMMUNICATIONS

Kathy Cheeley named Officer of the Year Kathy Cheeley was honored as Hanover County Emergency Communications Officer of the Year for 2010 during a recognition ceremony for emergency communications officers held on April 12 at the new Emergency Communications Center. Cheeley is a graduate of Liberty Christian School in Mechanicsville and has been a member of Hanover County Emergency Communications since November 1999. She was nominated by her supervisors because of her outstanding dedication, professionalism and leadership ability. Deputy Director Charlie Udriet said, “Kathy can always be counted on to display superior customer service under the most trying situations and prides herself in getting the job done while keeping a cool, calm and professional demeanor.” The department also honored Jillian Thomas for Individual Performance during a Critical Incident. On Oct. 27, 2010, while she was working the police radio, a tornado was spotted heading into Hanover directly toward the area where she lives with her husband and children, who were home at the time. She was recognized for her individual performance, composure and courage while working this incident. Also honored for Outstanding Team Performance during this incident were: officer Eddie Eacho, Jillian Thomas, Cynthia Martin, Katie Sprouse, Barbara Burrow, Whitney Trotter, Lorie Saunders and supervisors Nancy Langley, Jude Dawson, Carole Starcher and senior supervisor Arlene

Sharpe. These individuals displayed some of the finest examples of how emergency communications personnel pull together during a time of crisis and perform some of the most complex and stressful tasks under some of the most trying conditions imaginable. Communications officer Preston Main was recognized for receiving the highest number of peer recognition cards during the past year; Communications officer Casey Barnette was selected as the Communications Training Officer of the Year for 2010; and senior supervisor Stacey Adams was recognized as the Supervisor of the Year for 2010. Several were recognized for years of service: Officers Stuart Baughan, 20 years; Clay Barret and Corina Nuckols, 15 years; officers Diane Branch, Julie Cooper, Tiffany Dowdy, Kimberly Martin, Bruce Moore and Megan Nixon (five years). The department also recognized communications officers Casey Barnett and Jillian Thomas for their out-

standing performance utilizing the department’s automated Emergency Medical Dispatch Protocols and having the highest annual EMD (Emergency Medical Dispatch) scores. Debbie Winans, chair of the Hanover County Board of Supervisors, read and presented the Communications Department with a proclamation honoring them for their dedication, service and sacrifice during National Telecommunicator’s Week. The Board of Supervisors established the second week in April as Hanover County Emergency Communications Officer Week. Winans praised all Hanover County Emergency Communications personnel for their service, noting the stress and demands placed on them each and every day, along with the great job they do.

ers, especially through political means. I am fully aware that, as an atheist, I am automatically hated by many who know absolutely nothing about me, and that’s OK. Even though we don’t share it, I – and I think most atheists — can respect the sort of quiet, calm faith Miller demonstrates. It’s the rabid, mean protests of faith, betraying the weakness and uncertainty that underlie them, that raise our ire. To those people, I say, If you want our respect for your beliefs, demonstrate some for ours. Now, to respond to Jenna Hawk’s letter: I love that $5 trillion figure conservatives take glee in throwing around, but, as usual, they skip the part that puts the lie to their argument. They conveniently forget that almost $4 trillion of it was accrued during the previous war years of George W. Bush’s reign but held off the books until an honest president came along and forced it to be accounted for. Do we have too much debt? Of course. But paying it down on the backs of the poor, the elderly, the downtrodden and the infirm while making the rich richer is heartless, selfish, and not the American Way. Let’s dispel some myths. First, let’s dispel the myth that the debt will ever be paid off. It will not – indeed, doing so would be disastrous. Why? Almost half (currently 42.2 percent) of the debt is held by you, me and the rest of the citizens and companies of the US of A in the form of T-bills in our pensions, 401Ks and other investments. Paying off all that debt would take away a major form of safe, secure investment to a lot of people’s retirement plans, college funds and other portfolios. Contrary to popular conservative rhetoric, China will never “own” us – while various inter-

ests in China currently make up the largest single foreign country of holders of our debt, interests in Great Britain and Europe combine to hold more, and Japan, Australia and other countries hold a considerable amount. But a solid majority of our debt — about 60 percent — is held by either the U.S. government itself or by the people and corporations of the United States, and most people don’t want those debts paid in full because they want that interest to keep coming into their investments. Myth #2 is that debt is something new. At the end of the very first Congress, the U.S. was $75 million in debt, and we have never been out of it – not one year, although we got it down to $34,000 once in

Sun 1

the mid-19th century. Myth #2 is that that money was all wasted, as it depends on how you define “wasted.” If you’re a warmonger, you should love it, as we are still paying for the Revolutionary War and every war since – every single military excursion the U.S. has made for the last 240 years was fought on deficit spending, and by one well-respected economist’s calculations accounts for as much as 93 percent of our residual debt. On the other hand, our Interstate highway system also was built on deficit spending, instigated by the last Republican president to balance a budget. Myth #3 is that reducing corporate taxation is always appropriate – any economist will tell you otherwise. The 35

Singer brings talents to area By Forrest H. Gladstone For The Mechanicsville Local

inger/songwriter Katie Costello had just finished a sound check for a show at Higher Ground in New York City before the interview began. Asked whether she was nervous, she answered honestly. “You know, I’m not nervous yet — but that kind of worries me. Like it’s going to suddenly hit me before I go on.” She recently brought her talents to Hanover

S

County, with a performance at Ashland Coffee and Tea at 100 N. Railroad Ave. in Ashland. The local concert included Ari Hest. It’s hard not to listen when Costello performs. In the musical tradition of artists like Regina Spektor and Sara Bareilles, the 20-year old has a clear, rich voice that is light in its touch, encouraging listeners to hear her lyrics as clearly as her vocals. “I’m actually drawn to the writing aspect more than anything else,” Costello said. “I’d liken it to a diary, in a way.”

Ashland police taking part in drug take back Born in Hermosa Beach, Calif., Costello moved to NYC two days after her 18th birthday in the middle of her senior year of high school. She finished her senior year KATIE COSTELLO

through online classes, and turned her attention to her music. “I knew I wanted to pursue music wholeheartedly, and I had fallen in love with New York when I was recording my first album. I felt like I was surrounded by like-minded people, and the see SINGER, pg. 17 `

The Ashland Police Department will partner with the Drug Enforcement Agency to take part in the first nationwide prescription drug take back from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 30, at 601 England St. There will collection sites operating around the nation to include the Ashland Police Department where Americans can turn in their unused, unneeded, expired prescription medications. “We will not ask questions concerning prescription drugs needing to be disposed; we do ask not to bring syringes or any other street drug,” Chief Doug Goodman said. “Drugs can stay in their original sealed container or emptied in the bin.” Unused or expired prescription medications are a public safety issue, leading to accidental poisoning, overdose and abuse. It is highly suggested not to hold on to expired medications.

Homes containing children or elderly are especially vulnerable to this danger and need to take preventative steps, including getting rid of old medications. Every day, on average, 2,500 teens use prescription drugs to get high for the first time. Fifty-six percent of teens believe that prescription drugs are easier to get than illicit drugs. Sixtythree percent of teens believe that prescription drugs are easy to get from friends’ and family’s medicine cabinet. To learn more about the dangers of prescription drugs, visit the following websites: http://www.justice.gov/dea/index.htm http://www.getsmartaboutdrugs.com/ http://www.dare.com/kids/index_3.htm For more information pertaining to the event occurring at the Ashland Police Department, contact Officer Tommy Gilbert at 412-0615 or visit www.ashlandpolice.us.

‘Race the Rail’ in Ashland’s 33rd Railroad Run Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com Have you dusted off your running shoes and hit the pavement? If so, it’s time to register to “Race the Rail” in Ashland’s 33rd Railroad Run. This year’s Run will take place on Saturday, April 30. The 10K component of the race is a U.S. Track and Field Certified 10K Course. New to the 10K Race is the use of Chronotrack Bib Tag Timing presented by KaleRunning. com. According to race chair Dave Klisz, “We’re very excited to be utilizing KaleRunning’s chip timing this year because of the large amount of runners the

race attracts. We think it will take the 10K race to a higher level. In the past, it took runners a minute or so to clear the starting line. Now, it doesn’t matter because the chip will provide people who are going for a personal record (PR) a real finishing time tailored to them.” The race also includes a 5K Fun Run/Walk and a Kids 1 Mile Fun Run for ages 3 through 12. In addition, this eco-friendly race includes a Green Fair, featuring environmental vendors, as well as local farmers and suppliers. The Fair takes place on the grounds of the Hanover Arts and Activities Center for runners and race supporters to

percent corporate tax rate is a myth all on its own, as no company pays it; the average effective rate is less than 10 percent and many if not most pay little or nothing. Heck, thanks to President Bush, the multinationals get to bring their overseas-generated profits back to the U.S. and pay only 5.25 percent tax on them. The current corporate tax structure promotes taking and hoarding of profits, not job creation or debt reduction. Ask any big corporate CEO what he would do if his corporate tax rate was increased on profits, and you know what he would say? He would invest those profits back into the company – hire people, build facilities, etc. — so he wouldn’t have to pay taxes on them! We need to change the tax code to encourage the companies to invest back into America, not encourage them to send work overseas and hoard the profits! Myth #4 is that raising the income tax on the uber-rich is going to somehow kill their ability to create jobs. First, the uber-rich (and the pretty rich, and even the just nearly-wannabe-rich, if they’re smart) have their personal accounts completely separate from their business accounts, and if they’re smart they know better than to make business-investment decisions based on their personal tax issues. The small-business sole proprietor is a separate kettle of fish, but, again, a proper tax code that encourages that small-business growth and investment works best. Lower

A song can take months, or it can take five minutes.”

taxes are not automatically the answer – smarter taxes are. And for those who drive the no-tax-is-good jalopy, all I can say is: How was the rest of your trip to Fantasy Island? Because you’re sure not living in the real world. Finally, Myth #5 is that we can fix this debt by cutting discretionary spending and support programs (they are not “entitlements,” they are obligations!) while leaving military

The unpredictability, however, is part of what Costello loves about the process. Her second album, “Lamplight,” was released this year. She pauses and becomes thoughtful when asked how she thinks she’s grown since her first album. “The second time around I knew my way around making an album, and I was really able to execute ideas in the way I see SINGER, pg. 19 `

spending and revenue increases off the table. No one of any knowledge in economics and our finances believes that, and I will call a fool to his face anyone who tries to argue otherwise. Even the Secretary of Defense is begging for his budget to be cut! Ending these ridiculous wars and appropriately reducing military spending is a necessity. Social Security is not a drain on us; Medicare and Medicaid

definitely need work, but the best work that could be done there is to make it Medicare for all and eliminate the insurance companies. We can never pay it off completely, but we can lower our debt to a manageable level, without crippling our social obligations and in a manner that is fair and equitable to both people and companies.

Ryan Kuratko said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the season of Easter, we are all reminded of Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s graciousness and abundance, and every Christian community celebrates that graciousness in its own way. At Immanuel, we eat barbecue, shares our plants, and listen to music â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and we hope you can come for a while or for a little bit.â&#x20AC;? Local musicians are invited to participate in the open jam session from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Bring your instrument and make some music while your neighbors shop for plants and baked goods. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather listen than play, pull up a chair and tap your feet while you enjoy homemade pulled chicken barbecue for

lunch. You also can order dinner to-go for an easy Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day supper. Meals will include pulled chicken smothered in homemade barbecue sauce with coleslaw, baked beans, pasta salad and rolls. Dinner for four is $25. Individual meals are $6.50. You also can buy barbecue by the pound for $8 and freeze it for later. Advance orders are suggested. Call 779-3454 to place your order for pickup at the event. For dessert, choose from a large assortment of homemade cakes, pies, cookies, breads, see CHURCH, pg. 21 `


introspective and weighty themes, there is a delicacy to Costello’s vocals and her pianodriven music which, combined with the cleverness of her lyrics, keeps her songs from ever seeming too heavy. The emotional force of Costello’s music has been put to advantage in television shows like ABC’s Private Practice and the CW’s 90210 and One Tree Hill, — an experience Costello said never grows familiar. “It’s so weird! It’s like hearing yourself stuck inside a television,” she said laughing. “It’s great to have that kind of association, but whenever it comes

wanted them to be executed,” she said. “And aesthetically, I think [‘Lamplight’] is more musical, more complex. It’s more mature than ‘Kaleidoscope,’ richer. It’s also a bit more introverted and dark.” Lines like “We all hide from our minds/When the lamplight goes out and dims/We all try to de-rust the hinges squeaking deep inside,” from “Lamplight’s” “Old Owl,” certainly support Costello’s own analysis of her work. However, despite her often

on I can’t listen to it, it’s too bizarre.” Talking about the Ashland show, she said: “There is a power in expressing something perfectly, and having someone connect with what you’re saying,” crediting artists like Missy Higgins and Fiona Apple with reaching her in this way when she was a teenager. If she has a goal with her music, it is to do the same with her audience. “I’m not saying I’m doing it,” she laughs, “but it’s worth trying.” Costello’s website is www. katiecostellomusic.com.

Station 7 helps CHES

Feeding 1,900 children

Photo submitted by Cindy Shufflebarger

Photo submitted by Amy J. Williams

Firefighters with Mechanicsville Volunteer Fire Station 7 recently assisted with an installation project at Cold Harbor Elementary School. The school installed a man-made pond as part of a grant awarded Joyce Crown-Wilkins, the art teacher. The Aquatic Habitat provides several hands-on learning opportunities for the students. For the safety of the students, a fence needed to be erected around the pond. The grant does not allow for money to be spent on capital improvements, such as the purchase and installation of a fence. Custom Ornamental Iron in Glen Allen donated the materials for the fence.

½ Price Options Up To $20,000 plus $10,000 Broker Bonus*

The large warehouse was buzzing with excitement as a group of six Mechanicsville families — Anderson, Bremner, Hoppe, McEntire, Shay and Shufflebarger — gathered for a mission project. The seemingly small group faced a daunting task: To help feed starving children around the world. Could so few really make a difference? The answer was a resounding “yes.” The families partnered with Stop Hunger Now, a nonprofit organization, to raise funds and package meals. According to Dominic Alexander, the program coordinator for the Richmond location of Stop Hunger Now, someone dies every three seconds due to hunger or hunger-related illness. Yet, there is enough food on the planet to feed every person more than four pounds of food per day. Committed to help feed the impoverished, Stop Hunger Now has grown exponentially since it launched its meal packaging program in 2005 and now serves more than 70 countries. Using an assembly process that combines rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables and a flavoring mix, including 21 essential vitamins and minerals, into small meal packets, they recruit volunteers to package meals that cost only 25 cents each. To sponsor an event, a group simply needs to raise funds and then package the corresponding number of meals. The six Hanover County families proved the power of teamwork as they filled the bags of food. Measuring, scooping, passing, weighing and sealing, they packaged 1,900 meals in about an hour. The event was a success in not only helping others, but teaching the children that they, too, can make a positive impact in someone’s life – with as little as 25 cents and willing spirit.

HHS to present ‘Singin’ in the Rain’ The Hanover High School Theatre Arts Department will bring to life the magic of a 1920s Hollywood soundstage as it presents “Singin’ in the Rain” at 7 p.m. on April 28, 29 and 30 and 2 p.m. on April 30 in the school auditorium at 10307 Chamberlayne Road in Mechanicsville.

phy by Gene Kelly and Stanley Donen. The screenplay is by Betty Comden and Adolph Green and the songs are by Nacio Herb Brown and Arthur Freed.

are available. You also can find out how you can volunteer to help with the new community garden, where produce will be grown to feed the hungry. And be sure to make time for a tour of the 1853 landmark church building with local historians Jane Ruffin, Lindsay Ryland, Tilghman Broaddus, Steve Colvin and Jean Longest. Learn about the history of Old Church and find out who’s who in the graveyard. Free tours will be offered every hour. Immanuel Church is a Virginia Historical Landmark and has been placed on the National Registry of Historic Places by the U.S. Department of the Interior. The origins of the church date to the late 17th century. The present brick church was constructed in 1853, largely due to the efforts of George Washington Bassett, grandnephew of Martha Custis

Washington. The church is considered to be the best example of Gothic Revival architecture in the county, and it represents the revitalization of the Episcopal Church in Virginia and the United States during the two decades prior to the Civil War. During the Civil War, the property served as a field hospital and army headquarters. Old Church Parish also has connections to The Rev. Patrick Henry, who officiated here from 1737 to 1777, and actress Katharine Hepburn, whose grandfather, Sewell Hepburn, was rector of the church from 1881 to 1904. ——To get to Immanuel from Mechanicsville, head east on U.S. 360 and turn right on Old Church Road (Route 606). Go about 1.5 miles. Immanuel is on the right. For more information, visit www.immanueloc.org or call 779-3454.

Dorothy Atkinson, a member of the King William County Historical Society, is opening her home, Wyoming, to fellow members following the regular meeting on Sunday, May 1. Wyoming, according to the Virginia Landmarks Register, is located in the Etna Mills vicinity. The two-story, five-bay frame house was built circa1800 for the Hoomes family. While maintaining the Georgian flavor of earlier decades traditional for Virginia’s finer houses, Wyoming is considerably

larger both in exterior dimensions and room sizes than other Tidewater houses of the same style, and it may be the largest hall-parlor/center-passage house in eastern Virginia. Like many of these post-Revolutionary structures, Wyoming is embellished on the interior with paneled chimneypieces and

Short Track Showdown made the right move Charity benefits from Southside shutdown By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Charity rarely finds benefits from the misfortune of others, but such cannot be said in the case of Denny Hamlin Foundation. For the past three years, NASCAR driver Denny Hamlin, a former Chesterfield resident, has hosted his Short Track Showdown at Southside Speedway, the venue where he cut his racing teeth. But when Southside announced it was not going to open this year, the benefit was left without a home. Ironically, that could have been the best thing that could have happened to Hamlin’s charity race. In a mere three years, Hamlin’s event had clearly gotten bigger than Southside. With a regular sellout of tickets, seating capacity was pushed to its limits leaving many race fans outside the fence wishing they could get a closer look. “Obviously the roots of the Short Track Showdown are at Southside Speedway and always will be but we outgrew it,” Hamlin said. “We outgrew the seating capacity and the demand that people had to want to come to this race.” In search of a new home for his charity event, Hamlin approached Richmond

teammates Kyle Busch, Joey Logano and Darrell Wallace Jr. (pulling double-duty by running the Blue Ox 100 prior to the charity event). Also locked in for the race are NASCAR’s Tony Stewart, Michael Waltrip, Trevor Bayne, Hermie Sadler and Aric Almirola as well as motocross legend Travis Pastrana and Martinsville Speedway president Clay Campbell. Hanover County will have a connection to the event in the presence of Mechanicsville Late Model legend Frank Deiny Jr. and FDJ driver Clint King. FDJ Motorsports will also be providing the cars that Busch, Logano and Greg Pursley drive giving them five chassis in the event.

But regardless of who finishes the race first, the big winners of the event are the charities that benefit from the Denny Hamlin Foundation. “Last year we were over the $100,000 mark, which was good considering the size of the venue that we were at,” Hamlin said. “Obviously coming here (to RIR) we hope to double that.” The money raised by the Denny Hamlin Foundation goes to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, Victory Junction Gang and The NASCAR Foundation but also does work closer to home. “We were able to build a wing onto the Richmond Children’s Hospital with some of the money that was donat-

ed from the Denny Hamlin Foundation,” the driver said. “That just shows that people from the Richmond area, and not just Richmond but all over Virginia that come to support this event, it helps right here in your home town. “It’s big for me because the foundations and the charities that we support don’t always get a whole lot of recognition through the year other than the events we put on,” Hamlin said. And while the charity events of most NASCAR drivers take place on a golf course or bowling alley, Hamlin chose to stick with his heart when he created his main fund raiser. “For me Late Model stock car racing see CHARITY, pg. 39 `

is what I love to do,” he said. “It’s what I grew up wanting to do. I always grew up saying if I was just a great Late Model stock car racer I’d be happy. I remember saying that if I was just a local short track hero I was going to be happy.” Hamlin admits his goals have changed since that time but his love for the origins of the sport have not. “It’s a winwin for me because I get to go back and do things that I love and that’s Late Model stock car racing,” he said. “In the same breath you use the fans in the stands to help take that money and put it to these different children’s charities.” The last time Late Model stock cars ran at RIR, Hamlin was in the stands watching as a youngster. Now being part of a four race weekend at the same venue is beyond his childhood dreams. “My mom would have our race tickets on the refrigerator and I was always just waiting for the races to come in town,” he said. “Now to have all these races in one weekend is a big deal because I’m still a huge race fan at heart.” For Hamlin, the Short Track

Above: Last week, Late Model stock car drivers got the rare opportunity to test at RIR in preparation for this Thursday’s Denny Hamlin Short Track Showdown. The charity event, to benefit the Denny Hamlin Foundation, has grown substantially in three years of existence. Now at RIR and with a national television audience, the event should get even bigger.

Showdown is not just a Sunday drive. Having never won the event that is his namesake, Hamlin is putting in nearly as much work for the race as he does for the Sprint Cup, which was evidenced by coming to RIR for testing last week. When not turning test laps, Hamlin was under the hood, hovering over crew members and in the fender wells to make sure he was placed in the best situation to win.

Free shuttle service to RIR The Richmond Coliseum parking area at North 7th Street in downtown Richmond opens and begins offering free shuttle rides to fans at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 30. The shuttle service back to the Coliseum parking area resumes immediately after the conclusion of the Crown Royal Presents The Matthew & Daniel Hansen 400 race from the track’s main entrance. The shuttle is free, but a $6 parking fee applies at the Coliseum lot. The Richmond Coliseum parking area is conveniently located less than five minutes from the intersections of I-95 and I-64.

Fans can also park their cars and RVs at The Showplace and take a free

“I hope just coming out here today and using this test day is an advantage,” Hamlin said. “I feel like if we didn’t have today we were going to be in trouble (this) week.” Hamlin was not alone on the track as several other Late Model drivers brought their cars to RIR to run laps on the legendary track for the first time. For most it was an opportunity to see that their cars can push untouched limits

shuttle ride to Richmond International Raceway. The Showplace is conveniently located less than three miles from Richmond International Raceway at 3000 Mechanicsville Turnpike and is just ¼mile off of I-64 at exit 192. The cost for parking at The Showplace on Saturday, April 30 is $10 per car and $25 per RV. The complimentary shuttle to and from the track begins at Noon and operates continuously with pick-up and drop-off points at The Showplace and the main entrance to Richmond International Raceway at Richmond-Henrico Turnpike. To see a detailed map of The Showplace area visit: http://www.rir.com/AboutThe-Track/Seating-Chart-and-Maps/ Shuttle-Map.aspx. Fans can also contact The Showplace at 804-225-8877 with any questions.

due to the track length which should lead to an exciting night of racing. Many of the Late Model drivers will be traveling at speeds they have never raced before. However, NASCAR driver/announcer Hermie Sadler did not think the drivers will notice the difference while racing. “When they wreck, that’s when they’ll notice how fast they were going,” Sadler smiled.

the event on a track that is new to all of the drivers will make for a completely unpredictable event. “That’s the one unknown is how this race is going to play out,” he said. “Obviously this is a bigger facility. Wrecks might be bigger, things like that. Who knows how it might turn out but I know that each one of these guys that participates is going to want to go out there

and win and that’s special for us.” With a top-notch facility, television audience and a regular all-star list of drivers, this year’s Short Track Showdown could be only the beginning as the race should quickly speed into one of the nation’s top athletic events for charity. “Who knows where this thing can go,” Hamlin said.

2011-12TravelIceHockeyTryouts The Richmond Royals Hockey Club is the premier Tier II travel ice hockey organization that serves the greater Richmond metropolitan area. For 16 years, we have fielded competitive travel teams from the Mite to the Midget age group. The travel season starts the first week in September, 2011 and runs through the end of February, 2012. Our teams play as part of the Chesapeake Bay Hockey League (“CBHL”), which consists of 22 organizations that geographically cover a region from Charlottesville and Hampton Roads, VA to Easton and Hagerstown, MD. Last year, the CBHL consisted of 195 teams divided into 23 divisions across six age groups. The CBHL is the only Tier II league in Virginia/Maryland that is sanctioned by the Potomac Valley Amateur Hockey Association (“PVAHA”), an affiliate of the USA Hockey Southeastern District. We play in a highly structured league environment, play additional non-league games against area and out-of-state USA Hockey sanctioned teams, and compete in various invitational tournaments throughout the Eastern United States and Canada.

The Richmond Royals are proud to announce evaluation and tryout dates for the 2011-12 season.

but never had a 30-win season,” Proffitt said. But then the rains came and games were canceled, shortening win opportunities and stalling out momentum. “If we hadn’t lost some games to rain I think this would have been the year,” Proffitt said. Further dark clouds appeared as the offense disappeared down the stretch, seeing the Yellow Jacket team that was 21-7 end their year 21-13. After beating Emory & Henry 12-0 on April 9, R-MC scored only three runs over their final six games. But one shinning light that cut through it all came in the form of a highlight season from a highly unexpected source- freshman pitcher Brandi Wilson. Not even considered a potential impact player when the season began, Wilson finished the year with 55.2 innings pitched, notched 54 strikeouts and only gave up only three walks. How impressive are those numbers? In comparison, the NCAA requires a minimum of 80 innings to categorize their D-III statistical leaders. Emory’s Bridget Holloway leads the nation at 0.25 walks per seven innings. Wilson’s numbers would place her at 0.38 over seven innings to

be ranked second in the nation. Her 1.38 ERA would rank her 21st in D-III. And though walks versus strikeouts are not categorized, Wilson’s 54 Ks against 3 walks would place her by far as the leader in the ODAC conference and among the best in the nation. But what makes Wilson’s standout season so impressive is where she came from. Wilson was not a prized recruit coming out of high school, far from it. In her

senior season at Goochland, Wilson’s Bulldogs went 8-9 and she was not a player who drew raves from college coaches, among those Proffitt, who admits he had not considered recruiting her. “I won’t lie to you,” he said. “I don’t mean like we looked at her and didn’t like her, she just wasn’t on our radar from a recruiting standpoint.” Wilson contacted Proffitt late last spring about becoming a Yellow Jacket and made the team on the strength of references. “I knew enough people who knew her and we felt comfortable with having her come out in the fall,” Proffitt said. As such Wilson had no expectations coming to R-MC. “I thought I could help them if they needed help and stuff,” she said. “Other than that it was kind of 50-50. I kind of didn’t know what I would be doing until the games started.” During fall ball, Proffitt felt Wilson threw well but did not give an eye-catching performance. Therefore he had no plans to use her extensively when the season got under way. Ironically, the opportunity for Wilson to prove herself was during the team’s first loss of the season. In a lopsided affair, No. 9 ranked Salisbury jumped out to a 6-0 lead in the first two innings in the initial game of an extended weekend for the see WILSON, pg. 41 ` Charlie Leffler/The Local

FUN!

R-MC freshman pitcher Brandi Wilson developed into an unexpected surprise for the Yellow Jacket softball team this season. Completely off the radar coming out of Goochland High School, Wilson finished the season with numbers that rival the nation’s best.


Yellow Jackets take ODAC Championship Jordan Walton earns MVP honors after tying NCAA doubles record Contributed report For the second time in four years, Randolph-Macon Baseball captured the ODAC Championship and the automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. On Saturday afternoon Lynchburg, the Yellow Jackets downed Bridgewater College 6-2 to cap a historic weekend. The championship marks the first time that R-MC has picked up four ODAC titles in the same year; swimming, man’s basketball, women’s basketball and baseball. R-MC first baseman and Lee-Davis alum Jordan Walton was named the tournament’s Most Outstanding Player and tied the NCAA single season doubles record with his 27th double. Walton was joined

on the first team by DH Cory Jackson (Patrick Henry), second baseman Greg Mitro and pitcher Dale Langford. R-MC’s tournament run began in dramatic, record-setting fashion with a 1-0, inning win over Washington and Lee.

It was the longest game in the 35-year history of the ODAC Tournament. With two out in the top of the 14th, Jackson led off with a single to left and Dustin Baellow took his place on the bag as a pinch-runner. With two outs,

team. Therefore Proffitt decided to give Wilson a shot. “At that point we just said, ‘You know what, let’s get her some innings’,” he said. Making her first appearance against a ranked team, Wilson was stunning. In four innings pitched the freshman gave up three hits, one run and six strikeouts and did not walk a batter. “She completely shut them down,” Proffitt said. “They hadn’t made a bunch of substitutions, so it wasn’t like they had a different lineup in the game. It was the same lineup that scored seven runs in the first three innings. It really kind of turned our heads a little and we were like, ‘Wow!’ “It was really kind of a breakthrough game,” he said. From that point on, Wilson became a regular part of the

rotation, going from reliever to starting four games. “She’s ended up getting a few more starts than honestly we probably would have anticipated,” Proffitt said. “She’s just throwing well. She’s got good movement on the ball. She’s got nice velocity.

She’s got just enough difference between her fastball and her offspeed pitches.” But it’s Wilson’s mentality that impressed Proffitt the most. “The big thing about her is her composure,” he said. “She doesn’t seem to get flustered

Langford earned the win throwing six innings in relief. at anything…That’s one of the things that kind of jumps out to us as a coaching staff. She’s just real even keel. Nothing seems to bother her. She doesn’t get too excited when she does something extremely well and she certainly doesn’t show any signs of frustration or getting flustered if something’s not going her way.” Wilson learned to stay composed playing against high-level competition night-in and nightout on her summer travel teams. “I played travel ball since I was 10 so I’m kind of used to the level of intensity,” she said. “I was playing 18 and under since I was 15 so I got used to it really quick. “Here you’ve got a very high level of intensity with the teams and stuff that you put a battle on,” she said. “You try to stay ahead every inning but the intensity level for me is not really that big of a change.”

Facing Lynchburg in their second round contest, Walton led R-MC to a 9-5 win, going 3-for-4 with two RBI to compliment his three doubles. Walton broke the ODAC single season record for doubles which was set in 2002. Peter Culver also finished 3-for-4 and drove in two runs. Jackson plated two with a double and a single while Jake Fletcher chipped in with three hits including a double. In the tournament semifinals, R-MC reliever Dale Langford got out of a bases loaded, no out jam in the bottom of the ninth to secure the Yellow Jackets’ 6-5 win over Bridgewater College and earn a berth in the championship game. Mitro paced R-MC at the plate going 3-for-5 with two RBI. Jay Lichter also totaled three hits and drove in a run. Walton went 2-for-4 with a triple, two RBI and a stolen base. Jeb Weymouth see ODAC, pg. 43 `

It is clear that Wilson has found a home away from home in Ashland, showing the same enthusiasm for school as softball. “I like it down here,” she said. “The school is really nice. Everywhere you walk to you say hi to somebody and they say hi back.” Whether it’s academics or softball, Proffitt could not be more pleased with what he has seen from Wilson in her first season. “I think the sky’s the limit,” he said. “She has a really good work ethic. She’s not the kind of kid that’s going to take the success and treat it kind of stale. She’s going to keep working. “As a person in general, she just seems hungry and always wants to do the very best she can,” Proffitt said. And why not if you’re enjoying yourself? “I love it,” Wilson said. “The team’s great. The coaches are great.”

County players honored on AllODAC teams

JEB WEYMOUTH

Contributed report Randolph-Macon second baseman Greg Mitro and center fielder Jeb Weymouth (Hanover) were named First Team All-ODAC Baseball last week. Mitro, a Second Team AllODAC choice in 2009, hit .315 with a homerun, 12 doubles and 23 RBI. The senior righty started at second base in all 34 of the Yellow Jackets’ games this season. Weymouth, who was selected Second Team All-ODAC as a freshman last season, earned a spot on the 2011 First Team after batting .343 with a homerun, a triple, 11 doubles and 26 RBI. The sophomore boasts a .442 on base percentage while also swiping five bases. First baseman Jordan Walton (Lee-Davis) earned a Second Team nod after leading R-MC and ranking second in the ODAC with a .438 batting average. Walton led the league in three offensive categories with 63 hits, 21 doubles and 47 RBI. Brian Jordan (Goochland) and Cory Jackson (Patrick Henry) joined Walton as second teamers. Jordan batted .341 with two homeruns, two triples, seven doubles and 20 RBI. Jackson posted a .333 average and also knocked two homeruns, two triples, 11 doubles and 26 RBI.

Tournament brings top teams to Mechanicsville Lee-Davis’ Lewis gets win #300 By Jim Ridolphi Special Correspondent Playing through their vacation is nothing new for the Lee-Davis varsity baseball team. While most of their classmates were taking it easy with a week off, the Confederates hosted four games in two days as part of their annual Spring Break Tournament. The event formerly known as the North-South Tournament featured eight teams, most from within the region. Lee-Davis along with Douglas Freeman, Mills Godwin and Hermitage hosted games for the two day event while St. Christopher’s, Steward, Benedictine and Stafford took on the visitor’s roles making the short journey between venues. “This is a great tournament and it’s great to have these schools participating,” said Lee-Davis coach Kenny Lewis. “It’s always good baseball and a good learning experience for the kids.” Lee-Davis and Benedictine

got things started in the opener at Mechanicsville. The C-Feds entered the game ranked fourth in the region and the Cadets slotted at ninth. The matchup reflected the top to bottom competitiveness of this year’s lineup for both teams. The Cadets and Confederates wasted no offensive time in their matchup. Both teams pushed

across a run in the first inning. The Cadets added another in the second. They seemed poised to add to the lead in the third until L-D second baseman Chad Woodell pulled off a spectacular triple play to end the threat. The C-Feds added one in the third and two in the fourth and went up 5-2 by the end of five innings.

That set the stage for Cadet catcher Zach Matthews, who used his behind the plate knowledge to launch a Michael Folds curve ball over the left field fence. “I knew it had to be a curve coming,” Matthews said. “He’d thrown two straight fast balls.” Cadets coach Sean Ryan said it even more simply. “Zach hit a

mistake.” Lewis said the curve ball that caught the fat part of the plate is a mistake you can’t make on the mound. “It’s just something you can’t do. That pitch shouldn’t even be close,” he said. “But the

tournament is a learning experience and all you can do is learn from your mistakes.” Benedictine scored another run on a Michael Childress single that plated Griffin Flinn and see C-FEDS, pg. 43 `

(Hanover) and Peter Culver chipped in with two hits each. Randolph-Macon starter Michael Helbig picked up the win after allowing four earned runs on ten hits and striking out four in eight innings on the mound. Langford gave up just two hits and no runs with one strikeout for his third save of the season. Andrew Hacker (Lee-Davis) chipped in with two hits for Bridgewater. The Yellow Jackets raced out to a 5-0 lead by the fifth inning then watched as the Eagles climbed back into the contest. BC led off the bottom of the ninth with a pair of singles from Brett Howell and Jake Wade. Alex Nuttycombe then singled down the left line to plate Howell and pull the Eagles within two at 6-4.

knotted the game at five. The teams couldn’t score in the seventh, but the Cadets took advantage of extra innings and pushed two across in the top of the eighth. Andrew Woods who started the game at third but finished on the mound, hit a sac fly that scored Flinn. Colton Konvicka scored on a throwing error and the Cadets had a tworun lead entering the bottom of the inning. The C-Feds didn’t go down without a fight and loaded the bases but couldn’t produce the final hit they needed. “We put ourselves in a position to win and that’s all you can really ask for,” Lewis said. “It was a good close game,” he added. The coach said the third inning triple play was the first in his 19year coaching career. The teams didn’t have time to ponder the results, as both prepared for the second contest of the day, followed by two more on Thursday. It was a challenge

third and final out. The Yellow Jackets faced off against Bridgewater once again in the championship. James Bierlein started on the mound for R-MC and allowed two runs on six hits while striking out five for coaches and players, and required maximized efficiency, according to Cadet coach Sean Ryan. “You have to play team baseball to compete well in a tournament like this,” he said. “Everyone on the team has a chance to contribute and it requires team effort.” Escaping Mechanicsville with a victory, Ryan said the short time for reflection might be a good thing. “I didn’t think we played well at the beginning of the game,” he said pointing to four errors on the Cadet scorecard. “But I really liked the way we came back at the end and played solid. I guess you could say I hated the way we played early but loved the way we played late.” Lee-Davis rectified a shaky first day of competition with two victories on Thursday. The team’s second win of the day ended Steward’s 17-game winning streak but that wasn’t the only milestone of the day for the Confederates as Lewis recorded his 300th career win.

to pick up the 6-2 win. Langford retired all three batters he faced in the ninth to secure the title. Walton finished Saturday’s contest 3-for-5 with a double and an RBI to tie the NCAA record for single season doubles. Mitro went 3-for-5 in the championship game with two RBI. BC jumped ahead in the fourth when Kevin Kirk led off the inning with a single, stole second and then scored on a Hacker groundout. R-MC tied the game in the top of the seventh after Walton led off with a single then advanced to third on a Mitro double before scoring on a Lichter groundout. The Eagles re-tied the game in the bottom of the seventh when Jay Thompson scored on a Wade RBI single. But R-MC rallied for three runs in the eighth, two coming on a Mitro single to left after Weymouth gave the Yellow Jackets the lead with a sacrifice

fly.

“For a high school coach to win 300 games is quite an accomplishment,” said LeeDavis activities director Della Childress. “It shows the kind of program he’s run in his 19 years as a head coach.” Overall, Lewis was pleased with seeing what his team could show him. “Day two did go well..got some real good pitching from Michael Thomas in game one and Jordan Boze in game two,” he said.” Bats also came to life in the second day.. overall, I think we are set to come down the home stretch of the season..the tournament gave us some answers we were looking for.”

PUBLIC NOTICE

HANOVER COUNTY ELECTION DISTRICT REDISTRICTING PUBLIC HEARING Notice is hereby given that the Hanover County Board of Supervisors has scheduled a public hearing on the proposed reapportionment of County election (magisterial) districts, including changes in election district and precinct boundaries, and polling place locations, for Wednesday May 4, 2011, at 7:00 p.m. in the Board Room of the Hanover County Administration Building, 7516 County Complex Road at Hanover Courthouse, Hanover Virginia.

THE REAPPORTIONMENT OF ELECTION DISTRICT BOUNDARIES HAS ABSOLUTELY NO EFFECT ON SCHOOL DISTRICT BOUNDARIES. Recommended Redistricting Plan Changes The recommended redistricting plan changes the election district for 6,861 people (6.9% of the County’s population). A summary of population additions to each election district is as follows: Ashland District – add 2,175 population from the Kings Charter area along Atlee Station Road (presently in the Chickahominy District). Beaverdam District – add 988 population from the US-301 corridor in the Hanover High School area (presently in the Ashland District). Add 813 population from the Montpelier area (north of US-33) (presently in the South Anna District). Chickahominy District – add 272 population from the area between Verdi Lane and Shady Grove Road. Add 920 population from Crown Colony/Royal Glen subdivision area (both areas presently in the Henry District). Add 262 population from Pearson Corner area (presently in the Ashland District). Cold Harbor District – see Mechanicsville and Henry Districts for population adjustments. Henry District – add 742 population from the old church area (southeast of US-360 north of Old Church Road) (presently in the Cold Harbor District). Mechanicsville District – add 16 population from Creighton Parkway/Walnut Grove intersection area (presently in the Cold Harbor District). South Anna District – add 673 population in the Cobbs Road, Kosmo Village, and north Elmont areas (presently in the Beaverdam District). The recommended redistricting plan maintains the current total number of precincts at 34, but affects 22 of 34 precincts (12 have no change). The proposal moves four polling places to new locations. A summary of the precinct and polling place changes is available on the County’s web page. Copies of redistricting information are available for review at the Hanover County Administration Office, 7516 County Complex Road, Hanover,VA 23069, and on the County’s redistricting web page at www.co.hanover.va.us/board/ redistrict/default.htm. For more information, please contact Kevin Nelson, Hanover County GIS Manager, at knelson@co.hanover.va.us or contact the Planning Department between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. at (804) 365-6171.
