Moms ready to walk for kids Two local mothers are inspired for March of Dimes fundraiser By Melody Kinser mkinser@mechlocal.com Sunday’s March for Babies 2010 in Richmond is going to be a very personal experience for two Mechanicsville mothers. As Cathy Motley-Fitch and Laura Meyer Hamilton prepare for the fundraiser formerly known as WalkAmerica, they shared their stories last week about how they became

involved in an organization committed to the needs of moms and babies. Cathy gave birth on May 29, 2009, to twins, son Grayson Howard and daughter Lola Jayden, who were due on July 29. Arriving eight weeks early, their birthweights were three pounds, seven ounces and three pounds, four ounces, respectively. Grayson was born at 1:51 see MOMS, pg. 4 `

Dual reaccreditation awards were presented to the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office before the Hanover County Board of Supervisors on Wednesday, April 14. With these awards, the Sheriff ’s Office remains one of only 24 law enforcement agencies in Virginia to have earned and maintained international designation through The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) and one of 82 agencies in the Commonwealth to have earned and maintained state accreditation through the Virginia Law Enforcement Professional Standards Commission (VLEPSC). The international (CALEA) reaccreditation status was independently evaluated in August. At that time, the Sheriff ’s Office was found to be in compliance with 401 standards applicable to its function. Assessment team leader Terry Boatwright of the Folly Beach Public Safety Department in South Carolina commended Col. V. Stuart Cook, sheriff, and his staff for “their commitment to excellence and for providing a professional and well-managed

Sheriff ’s Office that the citizens of Hanover County can rightly be proud of.” The Sheriff ’s Office was originally accredited by CALEA in 2003. In January, three Virginia assessors representing VLEPSC evaluated the Sheriff ’s Office and its adherence to 187 law enforcement standards. The lead assessor, retired Chief David A. Daigneault of the James City County Police Department described the Sheriff ’s Office as “a well-equipped, well-trained and truly professional department in all aspects of law enforcement.” The Sheriff ’s Office was found to be in full compliance with all applicable standards, gaining its third reaccreditation. The Sheriff ’s Office has maintained accreditation from VLEPSC since 1998. Presenting the coveted awards before the Board of Supervisors were Craig Hartley, deputy director for CALEA, and Gary Dillon, director of VLEPSC. “The accreditation process and the success of the Sheriff ’s Office in obtaining these awards is a tribute to the hard work and professionalism of the men and women of the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office and the support we receive from our citizens,” Sheriff Cook said.

In talking about their arrival, Cathy said there were no signs of any problems. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both of them were perfectly healthy.â&#x20AC;? Grayson and Lola were Cathy and Alan Fitchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first venture in parenthood. A week later, the celebration came to an abrupt halt when Lola succumbed to necrotizing enterocolitis, which Google Health said â&#x20AC;&#x153;is the death of intestinal tissue. It primarily affects premature infants or sick newborns.â&#x20AC;? Cathy said the illness that claimed her daughter â&#x20AC;&#x153;was highly preventable.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had no idea,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was born on Friday and died on Thursday. The day she was diagnosed with NEC she died.â&#x20AC;? For five weeks before she delivered the twins, Cathy had been placed on bed rest at VCU Medical Center. When Grayson and Lola were born, they were immediately placed in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). After Lolaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death, Cathy and Alan remained in the NICU

with Grayson for six more weeks. It was during that time period that she became aware of the role of the March of Dimes. In trying to cope with the loss of Lola, Cathy discovered MISS, Mothers In Sympathy and Support. Alan, she said, is starting to work with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Daddy Bootcampâ&#x20AC;? workshops. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This experience has shown him how important it is to appreciate what you have.â&#x20AC;? Team Lola Gray will be walking on Sunday at Monroe Park in Richmond. Cathy said family and friends will be taking part and she will sing at the kickoff at the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Festival. Cathy has teamed up with the March of Dimes with a lullaby CD, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Broadway My Baby,â&#x20AC;? that is being released today. Thirty percent of profits will go to the March of Dimes. More information on her CD can be found at www.cathymotley.com. Grayson, described by Cathy as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a mile a minute happy,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;has gotten us through this.â&#x20AC;?

Rutland Center also will be home to the new 25,000-square-foot Hanover County Library, a fact that influenced Hanover Pediatric Dentistry in the purchase of office space. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We chose the north Mechanicsville/ Atlee area because of its growth and very good demographics,â&#x20AC;?

I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say the words, but I could sing â&#x20AC;&#x201D; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how we came to the March of Dimes.: At Christmas, Cathy said â&#x20AC;&#x153;We made special handmade ornaments for Lola and everyone who donated to the March of Dimes got a lavender glitter. We raised $750. Then we decided recently to do the walk and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still raising money for our team now.â&#x20AC;? By working with the March of Dimes, she added, she can help in the fight against prematurity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to make something right out of her death. We had a minister say at her funeral not to ask why, but to ask what â&#x20AC;&#x201C; what you can do, so that has been our mantra.â&#x20AC;? Cathy said some walkers have received pledges of $1 per mile for the five-mile walk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Others are doing a lump sum contribution.â&#x20AC;? As she continues to deal with the loss of her daughter, she attends grief counseling sessions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Other people going through it, it makes you feel â&#x20AC;&#x201C; no one can understand it except for someone whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gone through it because no one should lose a child.â&#x20AC;?

After Lolaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funeral, Cathy said they planted a fuchsia crepe myrtle tree in her honor and tied pink ribbons around it. Lauraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s involvement with the March of Dimes stems from her 16-month-old son Ethan, who has mitochondrial disease. Richmondmom.com has formed a team in Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s walk for Ethan, who was six weeks premature and spent five weeks in the NICU at Henrico Doctorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Hospital. Only recently did Laura and her husband Chris learn of their sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diagnosis.

son went into SVT (supraventricular tachycardia), which is a heart problem, and we weren’t sure that Ethan was going to make it that night, so the March of Dimes volunteers have actually been through what a NICU parent is going through. So they’re able to really relate to you and I don’t know how I would have gotten through it.” “Going into my pregnancy we knew when I was 16 weeks pregnant that there was a problem. My blood work came back that there was a one in 51 chance of Down syndrome, which that number is a relatively pretty risky number,” Laura said. “They were pretty concerned” and called her to come in the next day for an ultrasound. She met with a physician referred to as “a high-risk doctor” and was told her son “had three markers for Down syndrome. One of the markers were where his kidneys were.” She said they were “very enlarged and so they told us our baby was very sick and that we really needed to have an amniocente-

sis.” After undergoing that procedure, she was told it “did not come back positive for Down’s, but we started seeing multiple specialists for kidneys.” Laura said “no one could really tell us a diagnosis until he was born. The whole time while I was pregnant we were so concerned about the kidneys. At 33 weeks, I was put in the hospital and given surfactante, which is a steroid that helps the baby’s lungs develop for premature babies. And then he was born six weeks premature because his kidneys had become so enlarged they were pressing on his lungs, so they had to take him right away.” With three children at home — ages 9, 7 and 3 — Laura was well prepared when labor was induced. “I’m really good at this,” she said about Ethan’s delivery after four hours of labor. “When he was born we were concerned about this birth defect with his kidneys.

OPINION | The Local Views From the editor

County in a quandary about what is too noisy Anyone who has ever been kept awake by a barking dog (the incessant kind) will probably appreciate ongoing efforts by the Hanover County Board of Supervisors to formulate a noise ordinance. During the April 14 regular meeting, County Attorney Sterling E. Rives III updated the supervisors on revisions he has been making since the matter was addressed a few months ago. As he continues to pursue definitive action on the ordinance, Rives said he is “trying to get a sense of where the board wants to go on this,” with the goal of bringing the “ordinance back to you one more time before advertising for a public hearing.” A decision from the Virginia Supreme Court said the concept of a “reasonable person standard,” which has been the basis for most noise ordinances, “was unconstitutionally vague at least in context of a criminal prosecution.” Rives said the ordinance now in effect had been “substantially unchanged for at least 25 years.” What he brought before the supervisors two weeks ago also spotlighted proposed language to replace the existing description of prohibited animal noises, including “howling, barking, whining, meowing, squawking or other such noises which are plainly audible across a property boundary or through partitions common to two residences within a building and that take place continuously or repeatedly during a period of at least 15 minutes in duration between 7 a.m. until 10 p.m. or during a period of at least 10 minutes in duration between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m.” And, yes, you will have an opportunity to offer thoughts and/or opinions on the noise ordinance when the supervisors schedule a public hearing. Whatever sound may be emanating from an animal, it is, without a doubt, disturbing, especially in the wee hours of the morning. Stay tuned to this issue as it progresses through the work stages of the County Attorney and Board of Supervisors. In the meantime, what do you think about the possible changes? And how will a revamped noise ordinance affect your neighborhood? Drop a letter or send an e-mail.

Citizens need to be more responsible with loans Contrary to what AARP’s stand is on financial reform, I don’t blame banks or lending institutions for having lent anyone mortage money or any other kind of loan. Here’s the secret: If you spend more than you make, it’s your fault, not the bank’s or anyone elses. How stupid are we Americans that we can’t seem to do the arithmetic? Look at what you owe, look at what you make, and if you can’t afford a new house or a car, don’t buy it! The government wants control of every single area of our lives. That’s all we need is for the government to take over the banks. Doesn’t anyone see the socialist movement here? Our ancestors fought for freedom. Are we all so impotent that we can’t even make a loan choice without the government telling us how? Give me a break!

Wake up, America, before it’s too late. Elaine Sprouse Richmond

MRMC women’s care in top 5% Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com Women’s care at Bon Secours Memorial Regional Medical Center is among the top 5 percent in the nation, according to an independent study of patient outcomes released Tuesday, April 20, by HealthGrades, the leading independent healthcare ratings organization. The study evaluated 16 women’s medicine, cardiovascular, and bone and joint health treatments and procedures over the years 2006, 2007 and 2008 using data from the federal Medicare program. This is the second year that Memorial Regional Medical Center has achieved this distinction. “The HealthGrades ranking is in large part attributed to our most important mission, the health, well being and safety of our patients,” Mary Anne Graf, vice president, Women’s & Children’s Services, Bon Secours Health System, said. “Memorial Regional offers a full range of health care services to women of all ages; from eating right and working out to avoiding heart disease and managing menopause, women find the complete health resources they need. This recognition demonstrates an intensive effort across the board at Memorial Regional, of which we are very proud.” Of the 5,000 hospitals that met minimum volume thresholds and other criteria, Memorial Regional Medical Center and 165 other hospitals were identified as top performers, receiving the 2010/2011 HealthGrades Women’s Health Excellence Award.

Little League opening day on Saturday, April 17. There was fun for all. Only in a small town can you experience the events they had during the games: bake sale, silent auction, dunking booth, Richmond Flying Squirrels mascot, a car to hit with a sledge hammer, great concessions with reasonable prices, and, of course, the players on the Fields of Dreams. The games were well attend-

Participation in the study was not voluntary; all 5,000 of the nation’s nonfederal hospitals were evaluated by HealthGrades as part of the HealthGrades Seventh Annual Women’s Health in American Hospitals Study. Memorial Regional Medical Center and other recipients of the HealthGrades Women’s Health Excellence Award had, on average, women’s mortality rates that were 41 percent lower than the poorest performers. Award recipients had, on average, complication rates that were 19 percent lower than the poorest performers. “There is clearly a wide disparity in the quality of care for women among top-performing hospitals and all others,” Rick May, MD, a vice president with HealthGrades and one of the study’s authors, said. “The goal of this analysis is to not only put sound data in the hands of prospective patients, but also to identify top-performing hospitals who are setting national benchmarks for the treatment of women to which other hospitals can aspire.” Hospitals receiving the HealthGrades award – those that are top 5 percent in the nation -- improved their mortality rates among women by 15 percent over the three years studied. On average, all other hospitals improved by 12 percent. If all of the nation’s hospitals had patient outcomes among women that at the level of those receiving the HealthGrades award, 16,863 women could have potentially survived their hospitalization and 4,735 women could have potentially avoided a major inhospital complication. The HealthGrades study examined nearly 7 million hospitalization records from the federal Medicare database in all 50

What I saw in Mechanicsville was heart-warming: Families drawn together by the love of baseball and their kids. My grandson (Will Byrd Jackson) played his first T-ball game. The excitement in his face as he played was wonderful. My hat is off to all that are in charge of the Little League of Mechanicsville. Donna Dey Martin Williamsburg

The following procedures and treatments were analyzed: heart attack, congestive heart failure, pneumonia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, stroke, coronary bypass surgery, peripheral vascular bypass, coronary interventional procedures, resection/replacement of abdominal aorta, carotid surgery, and valve replacement; total knee and total hip replacement surgeries, spinal surgeries, and hip fracture repair. To be eligible for the HealthGrades Award, hospitals must have met volume requirements in stroke and either coronary bypass or valve replacements; met the volume requirements in at least six additional cohorts of the 16 evaluated; and have transferred out less than 10 percent of stroke patients. Volume requirements are a minimum of 30 female discharges over the three years, with at least five in the most recent year for the cohort.

pay for their program, fun stuff for the kids to do.” Older girl Troop 3223 recently toured the Richmond Area’s Coca Cola Plant where members finished a Junior Badge and an older girl Interest Project patch titled “Society of Women Engineers”. This tour allowed them the chance to ask questions of plant manager Tony Maxwell and his staff about the production line and maintenance issues. The girls were learning about machinery and engineering duties for the badge and IPP. Perhaps these girls will be future leaders in industry. Girl Scouting has offered these young women fun, thought-provoking and interesting activities where they have learned to become better citizens for the community.

At Marks Family Dentistry it’s Valentine’s Day all year! “As always, a dental visit that is very professional and fun”

Clay – Mechanicsville – January 27, 2009 “Dr. Marks is a compassionate professional with a wonderful support staff.”

Pamela – Mechanicsville – February 9, 2009 “I had a huge fear of the dentist for many years and this visit was excellent! My hygienist was excellent. Thanks”

Chad – Mechanicsville – March 27, 2009 “I look forward to bringing my family in for dental care...and...Wow...the Dentist has never called me at home to make sure I am o.k. Dr. Marks, thank you for the excellent patient care! I am a patient for life!! Your staff is wonderful also!

Teresa – Ashland – April 1, 2009 “The receptionist was awesome...nice and very friendly. Dr. Marks made the visit pain-free, even after the visit later on—no discomfort. THANKS!”

Leigh – Ashland – May 31, 2009 “Everything was great. You all took me on no notice and did a wisdom tooth root canal. I was in and out in 1 hour, and it was painless, a first for me on root canals of which I have had many.”

Larry – Richmond – June 5, 2009

Five basics to better listening (Editor’s note: A series provided by the Hanover Business Council continues with Polly White, Senior Professional in Human Resources, a partner in the Richmond Performance Group, a management consulting firm specializing in strategy, process improvement and people. She can be contacted at pwhite@richmondperformancegroup.com.) It is often quoted that we have two ears and only one mouth. Therefore, we should listen twice as much as we speak. However, many of us find this quality difficult to master. Just ask us, we will be happy to tell you all about it. The ability to listen ranks high on most lists of skills employers desire in employees. In addition, listening is critical when learning on the job, which is another skill which ranks high with employers. Effective listening habits take practice, patience and desire. In his book, Listen Up, Jim Dugger

suggests the following steps to become a better listener: 1. Listen for content. While words are only a part of the message, they are an important part. One study suggests that words provide seven percent of the meaning we derive from a message. Use your intellect to listen for facts and ideas as well as the specific words people choose.

2. Listen to the intent. The same study reports that 38 percent of the meaning of a message comes from tone of voice, inflection, pauses and other vocalizations. Practice using your intuition to hear the underlying messages. 3. Assess the speaker’s

nonverbal communication. Body language, including facial expressions, provides the final 55 percent of the verbal message. Watch for signals that tell you what the speaker is really saying. 4. Monitor your nonverbal communication. You must be just as vigilant about the messages you are sending to the speaker while you are listen-

ing. Remember, body language can speak very loudly without your saying a word. 5. Listen to the speaker with empathy. Finally, try to see the situation from your speaker’s point of view and try not to prejudge. see BASICS, pg. 19 `

“Just to let you know, I really enjoy coming to your office for my care. I, myself, had not been to a dentist for over 15 years because of my fear. I ended up coming to your office on an emergency, everyone was very kind and caring. I was scared about my 4 year old coming and not knowing how she would react. She never has once cried or complained, in fact, she goes back by herself. Just the other day she told me she couldn’t wait until her next visit so she could go to the treasure box. I think that says a lot of your office that a 4 year old is ready to come back. Whenever someone asks where to go, I tell them they need to come to your office for their care. Thanks again to everyone, you do a WONDERFUL job!”

Lindy – Quinton – July 29, 2009 “I was more than pleased with the overall service. Everyone was very pleasant and friendly. I personally wouldn’t change a thing.”

Will – Sandy Hook – August 4, 2009 “I am not sure there is another dental office that is friendlier, more considerate and caring as those wonderful individuals at Marks Family Dentistry.”

Michael – Aylett – September 1, 2009 “The hygienist and dentist were both great! I am excited about the office being able to do future services I’m interested in like whitening and bonding and replacing my old fillings. I’ve already called my sister about going to your office... Thanks.”

Amanda – Mechanicsville – October 19, 2009 “Outstanding Dental Practice. I will continue to recommend you to everyone that I know. Thank you for your caring, compassionate attitude. You are all wonderful!!!”

Susan – Powhatan – November 6, 2009 “I am incredibly impressed with the quality of care I receive here. I never thought I would be excited to talk about my dental visits, but I am after visiting Marks Family Dentistry.”

BASICS Continued from pg. 18 b

Becoming a better listener takes time, and as mentioned before, practice. Try this exercise as a way to sharpen your skills. First, choose a person with whom you would like to strengthen your relationship. Begin by asking an open-ended question to get the conversation

started. Then, listen while applying the five steps listed above. Start small. Strive to listen for five minutes during which you are not allowed to interrupt, give advice or hijack the conversation by telling the speaker your side or story. Instead, you will keep the conversation going by giving them verbal and nonverbal signals that you are listening and by asking additional

questions. Remember, interpersonal communication is a two-way street. People often need you to listen to them before they will be willing to listen to you. As Stephen Covey says in his book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, you should seek first to understand, then to be understood.

That night a genetic doctor from MCV (VCU Medical Center formerly was the Medical College of Virginia) came to visit with us and the testing began.” “They did so many different types of tests,” she recalled. “He had so many little idiosyncrasies; it’s just been within the last couple of months that the mitochondrial disease has been diagnosed.” She said a trip to Atlanta is planned this

summer for a muscle biopsy. “Mitochondrial disease is extremely rare,” Laura said. “I have only met two other mothers here in Hanover — one little girl passed away at 5 years old and then there’s a little boy he’s 4 here in Hanover — that’s all that I’ve met.” These days, Laura said, “It’s kind of my goal now to educate people in mitochondrial disease and that’s what we’re looking toward in September.” At that time a Family Fun Day fundraiser will be held.

He doesn’t crawl or stand up yet, or talk.” She said they are working with Hanover County Early Intervention.” She also said her son “doesn’t have energy like most kids; he has very low muscle tone and it takes him a lot longer to do things than those children. Vicki Williamson is our PT (physical therapist) and she’s fabulous. She has really helped him he has progressed [in development] so much. She has been able to work with us at our home. He gets services six times a month from them.” Laura said she contacted Richmondmom.com, also known as Kate Hall, after seeing an article in a magazine about her participation in the March of Dimes walk. That call, she said, was to the point: “Hey, I have a son and here’s the situation.” Last year, the team walked “in honor of a little boy who had died from Hanover. This year she offered for the team to be in honor of Ethan. His name will be on the back of the t-shirts. We’re close to $3,000 now as far as what we’ve raised.” “God’s given us Ethan for a reason,” Laura said. “Our children are only given to us for a moment in time and it’s our responsibility to raise them the best way we can. And when it’s time God will take them back.” For more information on Ethan’s team, visit Richmondmom.com. Additional information can be found at www.marchforbabies.org/lovemy4ltlhamsAccording to the March of Dimes Virginia Chapter website, http://www.marchofdimes. com/virginia/, “The money raised through the March for Babies will support lifesaving research, community services, education and advocacy that help babies get a healthy start.”


Pilot program aims to increase access, participation in SNAP Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack recently announced that USDA will invest in pilot projects to increase access and participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly the Food Stamp Program, among lowincome seniors.

Award grants totaling approximately $8 million will allow state agencies to pursue innovative outreach and delivery pilot projects. “The Obama Administration has put in place unprecedented measures and legislation to combat hunger and poverty in America and to assist food insecure households,” Vilsack said.

and the crowd who’d gathered to see the squall couldn’t have looked happier. That’s because this was a storm of support, as fans waved beribboned bolts and smacked inflatable thunder sticks together to encourage Team Thunder and Team Lightning as they took the court for the final time of the season to a packed gym. The players, all intellectually or physically challenged youth, basked in the attention, running the sideline receiving their high fives from the crowd after a big play. Upward, the world’s largest Christian sports program for children, was created with a vision to provide the best sports experience possible for every child. This year, Upward Hanover took this vision to a new level by creating the Challenger Division. The most fundamental goal of the Challenger Division is to give everyone a

SNAP Continued from pg. 21 b

USDA’s Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) is encouraging state agencies to submit grant applications for programs designed to boost SNAP participation among Medicare’s Extra Help population. Extra Help, also called the Low Income Subsidy, is a program to help low-income individuals or couples with limited resources pay for their Medicare prescription drug plan costs. Under a new law, data from these applications is sent to state Medicaid agencies to enroll people in Medicare Savings Programs. FNS will provide funding to encourage the Extra Help population to participate in SNAP by using state Medicaid agency data from Medicare Savings Programs. FNS invites state agencies to submit applications that will implement outreach efforts, simplify eligibility or standardize benefits for this population.

The deadline to submit grant proposal applications is June 30, 2010. “USDA has worked with state agencies for years on pilot programs to make it easier for elderly and disabled persons who get certain cash assistance from the Social Security Administration to enroll in SNAP. These projects aim at

building on that success,” Under Secretary for Food, Nutrition nd Consumer Services Kevin Concannon said. “The pilot programs under this announce-

ment further advance our mission of ensuring nutrition assistance for all those who are eligible.” While the participation rate among all eligible persons was 66 percent in 2007, the participation rate is less than one third (32 percent) among eligible elderly. Research shows multiple reasons why eligible people, including seniors, do not participate in SNAP. These include stigma, unawareness of eligibility, confusion about program rules and requirements, and lack of transportation. FNS oversees the administration of 15 nutrition assistance programs that touch the lives of one in four Americans over the course of a year. The largest program, SNAP, puts healthy food on the table for more than 39.4 million people each month. Interested state agencies may obtain grant applications at www.grants.gov or www.fns. usda.gov/snap.

Bank offers online scholarship contest Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com Students looking for a little extra money for their higher education only need to write a few words to enter a unique contest from First Community Bank. Three students will receive $1000 for having the most creative entries. The online contest asks students to submit what the life of a high school student means to them. But they only have 160

characters to do so. “While most scholarships are based on grades and an essay, we wanted something that students could relate to,” Robert Pettry, vice president of marketing for First Community Bank, said. “We think that it really tests a student’s creativeness to describe such a broad subject with so few words. We are excited about providing help to three students because we know that the cost of a higher education continues to rise.

And at the same time, the need for a college degree continues to be paramount to a person’s success.” The contest is open to any high school senior between the ages of 16 and 19 attending a high school in a county in which First Community Bank operates. There is no purchase necessary. The contest is open until July 15 and the electronic entry form along with the complete rules can be found at www.

to watch their child from the stands. I feel we accomplished these goals with a lot of love and dedication from our tremendous volunteers,” Ed Berenson, Upward Basketball Challenger Division director, said. Volunteer “Buddies” ran alongside the players on the court throughout the game, assisting with basketball fundamentals, as well as providing fist bumps, pats on the back and hugs. The obvious joy felt by the Challenger Division players was contagious. Fans and volunteers all look happier to be there than if they’d been given 50 yard line seats at the Super Bowl. “His Buddy was key to his success, guiding him and bringing him so much love and joy. He was a bundle of happiness from the moment he stepped on the court,” parent Patty McGann said. “I decided to volunteer with the Challenger league because it was an opportunity to work with children, which is some-

I am grateful for the opportunity to have volunteered and will be first in line next season.” volunteer Heather Taylor added. “My 8-year-old son loves basketball, but always had to watch other children play from the sidelines. Upward Challenger basketball gave him the opportunity to be part of a team, to learn the game and to have tremendous fun,” McGann said. An emotional Berenson addressed the crowd before the final quarter was played. “I can’t believe that there’s only six minutes left in this season.

The Church Without Walls By Pastor David Crisp, Senior Pastor

Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com

C

oming up in just over a week is the National Day of Prayer. Here in Mechanicsville, there will be a community prayer event at the historic Pole Green Church site on Rural Point Road. I’ve always been impressed with the white welded beam structure that was built there to represent the old church, and for lack of anything better, I began referring to it as “the church without walls.” I use it as a landmark when giving driving directions to folks who need to go over that way and when I say, “You know, over by the church without walls?” People always seem to light up and say, “Yeah, isn’t that great!” Well, as a matter of fact, the idea of a church without walls is pretty great! ... and very Biblical. “The Church” is not a building. The church is a family made up of “called out” believers – the true church has no walls!

r Ou g n ! i r rat ea leb3th Y e C 11

A 113 Year Tradition of Caring

N

ext Thursday we will all get the opportunity to put that idea into practice. On that historic site, the real “church without walls” here in Mechanicsville – you and me and a bunch of other “called out” believers – will gather to pray for our nation. Can you honestly think of anything that needs doing more than that? What might happen when faith-filled believers get together without denominational walls, lay aside their differences and urgently seek God’s face in humility and unity? What could happen when Christians of all kinds come together and focus on the One who saved us and through the access He granted us at the cross, come boldly before the throne of grace and implore the Living God who gave this nation life to once again bring America to repentance and revival? Well maybe, just maybe, what will happen is that God will hear from heaven and heal our land! “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place.” (2 Chronicles 7:14-15)

S

0, if you are member of the true “church without walls,” if you know Christ as your Savior and are willing to join with some of your brothers and sisters in prayer, if you want to do something that truly might change things for the better in this land that we love, come and join me and many others who will be at the Pole Green Church Historical Site located just north of Pole Green Road on Rural Point Rd., (“You know, over by the church without walls?”) from 6-8 pm on Thursday evening May 6. We will not be protesting. We will not be preaching or pontificating. We will not be practicing party politics. We will be praying….and God will be listening.

Each table is decorated with different place settings from treasured personal collections. Each year organizers “theme” the fashion show, building on the 2008 theme of Ashland’s 150th celebration when fashions from 1858 to 2008 were showcased. Fashions of the ’50s/TV Moms will even have the committee’s “wait staff ” in the spirit with “vintage” aprons and appropriate “pearls.”

Calhoun stands tall despite loss of legs Wounded veteran a proper fit as race namesake By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com When Heath Calhoun first arrived at Richmond International Raceway he was in an upbeat mood and who could blame him. Calhoun was about to unveil his own name on the official logo for this week’s Crown Royal Presents, the Heath Calhoun 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at RIR. Calhoun climbed from his rental car, strode up to the pit road wall, leapt across the barrier, and then trotted over to the Toyota hybrid pace car for the official unveiling. But what made Calhoun’s casual entrance most impressive was the fact that both of his legs were amputated above the knee and stood on pros. In 2003, Calhoun served with the 101st Airborne in Iraq when his Humvee was hit by a rocket-launched grenade. The explosion killed one of his fellow soldiers and destroyed Calhoun’s legs. However, the Purple Heart recipient was not deemed a namesake of this week’s NASCAR race due to the fact that he lost both his legs but rather what he has accomplished since that time. While undergoing rehab,

Calhoun became involved with the Wounded Warrior Project and eventually became a spokesperson for the group. In 2005, he helped get the Wounded Warrior Bill passed through Congress, creating legislations to assist wounded soldiers and their families during rehab. In Richmond, Calhoun hopes to continue recognition of his cause. “I definitely hope that me being here and having the race named after me will be able to shed some light on the wounded service members that are coming back from Iraq and Afghanistan,” he said. “The need now is greater than ever. The guys are still coming back…I just want to keep everybody aware of the fact that guys are coming back every day.” Yet, it is not Calhoun the activist but rather Calhoun the athlete that makes him a perfect fit for the NASCAR race. During rehab, Calhoun quickly became aware of the numerous athletic endeavors open to people with disabilities. Five months after the attack in Iraq, Calhoun attempted mono-snow skiing for the first time. Since that time, Calhoun’s skiing resume has been impressive, following a first place in the 2008 Eastern NorAm Slalom with a 2009 Top 10 finish in Vancouver’s World Cup, a second place in the Slalom and first place in the Super G at last year’s U.S. National Championships.

Charlie Leffler

A native of Bristol TN, graduate of Southwest Virginia Community College and veteran of the 101st Airborne, Heath Calhoun lost both legs in Iraq but he had not his disabilities slow him down. As a versatile athlete, Calhoun is a perfect fit to be the namesake for this week’s Crown Royal Presents the Heath Calhoun 400 Sprint Series NASCAR race at Richmond International Raceway.

Calhoun is currently working with the U.S. Paralympics Ski Team. However, his athletic endeavors are not limited to skiing. In 2005, Calhoun was part of a group that biked 4200 miles from Los Angles to New York to raise awareness and money for

wounded service members. Since being fitted with prosthetic legs in 2006, Calhoun has not only returned to a pedestrian life of walking but he also runs, hikes, swims, plays golf and drives a stick shift. And driving is the passion that brings Calhoun to RIR “I

grew up around Bristol (TN) and my grandfather was a huge Darryl Waltrip fan,” Calhoun said. “I kind of grew up with my grandfather buying me the Darryl Waltrip toys and with him watching and listening to the race.” Ironically, Calhoun who was

once a big fan of Tony Stewart has since changed allegiances to Matt Kenseth, driver of the Crown Royal Ford. “The first race I ever took my wife to, Matt won,” Calhoun said. “He had a great year that year.” see CALHOUN, pg. 45 `


Drivers go to great lengths to promote racing By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com NASCAR driver often go to great lengths to promote upcoming races in cities around the country. Richmond is no exception in that area. In recent weeks, Sprint Cup driver Kasey Kahne as well as Nationwide drivers Jason Leffler and Justin Allgaier have all been visitors to the local area to raise interest in this week’s NASCAR races at Richmond International Raceway. Kahne, who won his first race in Richmond, began his visit three weeks ago with a normal meet and greet among race fans at Brown Distributing. This year’s changes in NASCAR were a hot topic of discussion and Kahne was in favor of both the spoiler and changes to the restrictor plate regulations. “I think NASCAR’s approach right now is really good,” he said. “They talk to the fans, they listen, they do a lot with the fans and know what the fans want to see, what they like and what they don’t like. I think they want to keep the fans happy.” But when it comes to some fans desire to see a long track race without restrictor plates, Kahne indicated it would not

CALHOUN Continued from pg. 44 b

But the kicker was when Calhoun had the opportunity to meet Kenseth in Daytona. “He’s such a great guy,” Calhoun said. “I got to meet him, his wife and his new baby and he’s just an awesome guy.” Since becoming more closely connected with NASCAR, Calhoun’s view of the sport has changed. “It makes it tough when you start meeting all the guys to say, ‘I just like this driver,’” he said. “You’ve got to like them all. They’re all a bunch of

be something he would want to be part of. “That would be really bad I think,” he said using a recent practice run as an example. “One of our Roush cars was doing over 215 in the draft with restrictor plates. So if you take them off you’re going so fast that…I mean how do you…it’s not really even something you can talk about. You have to have restrictor plates. You have to have the car slow on a 2 ½ (mile) track like that…If you don’t slow them down it will just be, we’ll all be dying. We’ll be dying. We’ll be in the grandstands. We’ll be all over the place. It’s not really something you can really think about.” And while speed was a

topic of discussion, Kahne was stopped dead in his track by a question from 107 DJ Sludge. “Does Richard Petty really look like the Crypt-keeper when he takes his hat and glasses off?” Sludge read off the question from one of his listeners.

great guys.” Though a longtime NASCAR fan, this week will mark Calhoun’s first race at RIR. He will not only have his grandfather at his side, but his wife and children, who will be attending their first NASCAR race. Calhoun hopes that the pampering his children receive this weekend will not spoil them for future races when they can get no closer to the action than the grandstands. While extremely excited about this upcoming weekend, Calhoun has yet to absorb the fact that his idols since child-

hood will now be looking forward to meeting him. “You sit for so long, watching from a kid up, watching these guys on TV and just feeling almost an untouchable, out-of-this-world kind of experience until you get to your first race,” he said. “You find out they really are people and they’re very personable. So to get to meet the guys, it’s just awesome. “Just to be a part of it and to be here and for it to be the Crown Royal Presents the Heath Calhoun 400, it’s an experience you can’t really put into words.”

R-MC hangs tough in home loss to H-SC Team prepares for ODAC playoffs By Jim Ridolphi sports@mechlocal.com On Saturday, RandolphMacon lived up to its ODAC reputation as a never say die lacrosse team, but came up short against rival HampdenSydney in their final regular season game. At stake was home field advantage for the upcoming ODAC tournament, which starts this Wednesday. The 12-8 final means H-SC will play its first game at home against Virginia Wesleyan. “We’ve won all of our road games this year, but home field advantage is huge in post season and I think we will have a winnable game on Wednesday,” Tigers coach Ray Rostan said following the win. Rostan, in his 26th season at H-SC, said he was

Raiders continue win streak on the court L-D getting closer with each match By Jim Ridolphi sports@mechlocal.com Busy? You might say that. Atlee senior Shao-wei Tu spends most of his spare time this spring splitting practice time between tennis and track. Last week, the defending Capital District champion led his fellow Raiders to a 6-3 tennis victory over visiting Lee-Davis. “If there’s a match, then I play tennis, but otherwise, I’m at track practice,” Tu said. He competes on the 4 X 400-yard relay team for the Raiders Tu didn’t let a slightly sprained ankle deter from a spirited performance against LeeDavis’ number one player, Nick

Peterson. “I sprained my ankle in gym class and it’s taped really tight so I can’t move around as well,” Tu said following the match, which he won 6-2, 6-3. Tu combined solid ground strokes with a top spin serve that baffled Peterson early in the match. By the fourth game of the opening set, Peterson found the range, but Tu stepped up the velocity. “I use my top spin serve until I get behind in a game, then I depend on my hardest serves. That’s what happened in this match,” Tu said. For Tu, this year’s dual sports schedule has been a challenge and his preparation for the tennis season was minimal, largely due to the success of the Atlee indoor track team.

“I didn’t play a lot in the off season this year so my game is still coming back,” he said. “I think it’s coming back slowly and I think the season has gone well so far,” Tu added. Raiders’ assistant Nate Varnier said Tu is a coach’s dream. “He’s a very athletic kid who also excels in track,” he said. “He’s a great team player and a real sportsman when it comes to singles. He’s very agile and disciplined and has good change of pace and direction.” The Raiders are 8-2 with losses to powerhouse Henrico as the only mark on an otherwise perfect season.

The first annual John Marshall High School nonmulligan golf tournament was held on Monday, April 12 at Providence Golf Course in Richmond. The winning team consisted of longtime Mechanicsville resident, Captain Shot Mangum, a 1959 graduate, along with his son Roy Mangum, son-in-law Rick Kresinske and grandson Trae

Kresinske. They scored a smoking 12-under par in this captain choice event. Trae also received an award for the “shot of the day” for his eighty-yard eagle chip on the fourth hole.

The Jackets made it close when Egan, Jake Leddy and Taylor Wicke scored consecutive goals to open the final period, drawing nearer at 11-7. But the Tigers closed the match by exchanging goals with the

matches we thought we had a chance in, and have played close in the ones we lost,” he said. “I feel like we are just a hair away from getting where we need to be.” Butler said the scores don’t always indicate the closeness of the games, and his team had a good outing against the Raiders. “I think our guys played some of their best tennis today. You don’t always see that in the final results, but the games were close and could have gone either way.” Chris Benelli defeated Atlee’s Don Moneghan, 7-6, 6-2 in the fourth seeded singles match, and Atlee’s Jeff Roberson lost to L-D’s Joseph Hoang, 6-4, 6-3, giving the Confederates two singles victories for the match. “That’s the best I’ve seen him play all year,” Butler said referring to Hoang’s performance. Benelli, who moved up from

Rostan said the Tiger’s freshman goalkeeper Cody Hornung deserves credit for stepping up in a big game. “This was his first start for us, so it was a challenge coming in here on the road in a big ODAC game.” Tiger senior defenseman Daniel Martin led the defense, causing two turnovers and scooping up eight ground balls. “He’s been a tremendous leader for us all year,” Rostan said. H-SC won 21 of 35 faceoffs, a statistic that stood big in Plantholt’s mind. “They won the face-offs and it made a his usual number five spot to fill the void at number four, used his experience and strategy to win his singles match. “He’s a very heady player who thinks his way through a match. He doesn’t try to over hit the ball like a lot of high school players,” Butler said. The C-Feds had to adjust their ladder as fourth-seeded player Mike Hotchkiss missed the competition due to a family commitment. “We had to juggle the lineup today so I thought we played well. We were a set away from a 3-3 tie in singles and that could have made the difference.” In the opposite court, Varnier said the Raiders are continuing to progress and he feels good about the way his squad playing past the midway point in the season. “I feel like we’ve been very solid,” he said. “We have a number of younger players so we get better with each match.” Out of 18 players on the Raider team, seven are freshmen.

big difference at key points in the game,” he said. “We just couldn’t seem to get one.” It was Senior Day for RMC, but that designation only applied to one player on the Yellow Jackets squad, Billy Rowe. The midfielder played his last home game in front of an appreciative audience, recording three assists in his final appearance. Rowe scored 75 goals in his four-year career at RMC. He’s also grabbed 118 ground balls and helped the Jackets reach the playoffs for the past three years. “It’s been a great experience for me,” Rowe said after the

game. “I wish we could have gone out with a win today, and it would have been better.” Plantholt said he’s going to miss the senior leader. “He’s been a great player for us, and I can’t say enough about him. He’s been a real leader for us for four years.” The Yellow Jackets will get ready for ODAC tournament play and enter their third consecutive post-season competition since Plantholt arrived. “I think we’ve progressed well as a team this year,” Plantholt said. “We’re young, but these guys don’t quit. They play hard and always feel they have a chance to win.”
