What do top ROBBERS ON THE RUN earners bring?

Technology literally puts a face on suspect

By Melody Kinser mkinser@mechlocal.com An arrest on Thursday may have prevented a recent bank robbery from becoming “cold,” but similar incidents remain active for investigators with the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office. Four “cold cases” involving robberies are now being actively pursued by investigators. On Friday, Capt. Michael J. Trice released information about 44-yearold Preston Robert WALCKER Walcker being charged with the May 4 robbery of the Union First Market Bank at 7279 Bell Creek Road in Mechanicsville. His arrest stemmed from the cooperative efforts of the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office, Virginia Beach Police Department and Chesapeake Police Department. Walcker, a Virginia Beach resident, was lodged in the Virginia Beach Correctional Center without bond. In addition to the Mechanicsville

robbery, Walcker is accused of bank robberies on April 12 and May 6 in Virginia Beach and May 12 in Chesapeake. Thanks to the efforts of Hanover investigators, information surfaced that Walcker was responsible for the Hanover robbery as well as other crimes in the other two jurisdictions.

This image shows the suspect in the May 18, 2005, robbery of the BB&T on Mechanicsville Turnpike.

A day before Walcker’s arrest, Trice praised the assistance the public provides. “The Sheriff ’s Office has always been very up front in recognizing that our successes are directly attributed to our citizen involvement. We believe — were it not for the good citizens calling in tips and their suspicions — that we wouldn’t be as successful in clearing these crimes as we have been.” While Walcker’s case turned around in just over a week, Sheriff ’s Office investigators have been

reviewing unsolved robberies that have taken place since 2000. In 10 years, Trice said, there have been 182 robberies in the county. “We solved 89 of those cases,” he added. The four selected for this series are “a tip away” from being solved. “It’s our feeling if somebody goes in and commits a robbery, two things are probable: They’ve committed several offenses before or they’re going to continue to commit robberies in the future.” The captain did say that “The likelihood of somebody being hurt as a result of these crimes increases as long as they aren’t apprehended for these crimes. So we think it’s important — although they weren’t immediately apprehended — that we continue to seek their identity and hold them accountable for their crimes.” Of the four robberies that follow, no one was harmed in the commission of the crimes. ❍ At 4:40 p.m. on Wednesday, May 18, 2005, a black man approached a teller at the BB&T at 7016 Mechanicsville Turnpike. He communicated a threat and demanded money. He did not display a weapon. He left the bank with an undisclosed amount of money, but it is not known what kind of vehicle he may have used to flee. The

A 113 Year Tradition of Caring

8014 Lee-Davis Road, Mechanicsville • 746-8665 Bennett Funeral Home was established in 1897 to serve the needs of Richmond families. Since then, this locally owned and operated business has continued to serve the community with its unique combination of caring and convenience. This tradition of excellence can be seen in the four beautiful chapels located throughout the Richmond area: centrally located on Cutshaw Avenue in the city, on Broad Street Road past Innsbrook, on Ashbrook Parkway in Chesterfield and serving the Hanover-Mechanicsville area on Lee-Davis Road. All four facilities are under the personal direction of Charles D. Morehead, President. In a time of need, you can turn to Bennett Funeral Home with trust and confidence. It serves families of all faiths with personal service, before, during, and after. There is a long tradition of professionalism and caring. One way in which Bennett cares for families is by offering a convenient and personalized pre-need program. Through this program of pre-need planning, you can spare your loved ones the burden of making decisions at an emotional time. Call Bennett Funeral Home at 746-8665 to schedule a pre-planning consultation.

Starting Monday, Mechanicsville area residents who commute to downtown Richmond in the morning hours will have three opportunities to take public transportation. The GRTC Transit System will start providing Monday through Friday service at 7, 7:30 and 8 a.m. from the Mechanicsville Park-n-Ride, located near the intersection of Atlee and Cold Harbor roads. Return trips are scheduled for 4:05, 4:30 and 5:20 p.m. The cost will be $3 per trip. Larry Hagin, director of planning and government relations for GRTC, told the Hanover County Board of Supervisors last Wednesday about the Mechanicsville Express. The Park-n-Ride location, which is owned by the Virginia Department of Transportation, offers about 75 parking spaces, Hagin said. That site, he said, is “ideally located right next to [U.S.] 360 on an urban arterial that gets a lot of traffic use between Mechanicsville and downtown Richmond.” “VDOT is comfortable with us using the lot,” he added. When the Mechanicsville addition was being considered, Hagin said GRTC officials

We feel Mechanicsville is viable for good transit service.” Coats asked if any other location had been considered for the starting point, citing the traffic issue at Bell Creek and Lee Davis roads. “It bottlenecks down [when you get into Mechanicsville].” “We would love to go farther east,” Hagin said. He also said GRTC approaches private property owners about providing space for park and ride lots. “This is a big deal for GRTC too,” he added. Beaverdam District Supervisor Aubrey M. Stanley asked about the service’s future after the three-year funding period. “We will market price it right,” Hagin said,” and get enough ridership that it will sell itself. We hope it will be selfsustaining. That’s our goal in this case.” County Administrator Cecil R. “Rhu” Harris Jr. told the supervisors that the matter did not require any action on their part. ——For more information, call the GRTC Customer Service Center at 358-GRTC (4782).

OPINION | The Local Views From the editor

Officials hold true to open government When the request was made for salary information for Hanover County government and school system employees, there was no hesitation to accommodate. In this business, that’s a big deal. We’re fortunate to have leadership that is agreeable to providing requested information. While it can be obtained through the Freedom of Information Act or, in extreme cases, the legal system, that’s not the case here. And it’s something for which we should all be thankful. In addition to the article that starts on our front page today, the salary information we received can be found on a recently established database on our website, www.mechlocal.com This print edition includes the top wage earners, as well as background on their education and experience. We also list the six-figure incomes for the other employees in both taxpayer-funded divisions. Our database starts at salaries of those making at least $75,000. This cooperative effort speaks volumes about the county in which we live, work and, yes, pay taxes. There was no hesitation when the request was made. The salary data was readily submitted, as were resumes for the four top paid officials. An impressive spirit indeed. Bottom line: We asked and they responded. It’s a good day to be in Hanover County.

NOAA requires fishing registry

Well, the Feds are at it again. NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) has started a National Saltwater Angler Registry that will require most people who fish in federal waters, i.e. Chesapeake Bay or will be fishing in brackish waters (any river flowing into the bay), to register. Your state license won’t cover this requirement. Nor will your “boat fishing license” cover any invited guests. The registry is to, “... create a data collection system to help protect the nation’s ocean resources”. This year it’s free, but there will be a charge in the future. And you have to renew annually with an estimated cost of $15 to $25. Where will the money go? According to their FAQ page, all the money will go directly into the federal treasury. With an estimated 25 million anglers, it will generate a tidy sum. Oh, and don’t think there aren’t significant fines if you get caught without your registry card.

Just call me cynical, but I see this just as another way to generate money for the Feds. Chuck Williamson Mechanicsville

Volume 22 No. 8

Message from the Principal As we approach the close of the 2009-10 school year, we are still strongly motivated and on task. Statewide SOL assessments begin on May 17 and will continue through the end of the month.. Please be reminded that students need to continue to be actively involved in their classes and school activities each and every day through the end of the school year. Instructional activities for the remainder of the year will be geared toward helping students prepare for final exams as well as preparing them for the next level of a sequential course or program of study. I am pleased to announce that Lee-Davis has been selected to participate in the VASS Grant for 2010-2011. VASS is a non-profit state organization created by a partnership between Virginia and the National Math and Science Initiative (NMSI). This program will provide funding for ongoing Advanced Placement Training for teachers and a unique Incentive Program at our school. The mission of VASS is to encourage high school students throughout Virginia to prepare for exciting careers by enrolling in challenging Advanced Placement classes. We anticipate an increase in the number of students enrolling in AP classes and will share more information in the coming weeks via the e-mail connection and other media outlets. Finally, as an attendance reminder, the Hanover County Public Schools policy mandates loss of credit for more than ten block class absences. This includes all absences, whether excused or unexcused; field trips and suspensions are the only exceptions. To request a waiver of the attendance policy, completed waiver packets for each affected class must be turned in on time to Mr. Charles Stevens, Assistant Principal. When a decision regarding a waiver request is reached, the parent will be notified; however, in the meantime, students must continue to attend school, participate in class, and take exams as scheduled.

• Please be mindful that exceptions may not be made for the convenience of individual students with regard to the exam schedule. To receive credit for a course, a student must take the exam. Please note that students shall not be permitted to take examinations out of schedule unless permission is granted by the building principal or his designee. A written request, stating the reason for rescheduling, is required in advance. The only exception to this is the senior student who meets exemption requirements. (Students who pass an SOL test in a particular course will be exempt from the final exam in that course.) • Anyone with outstanding library fines or books or balances due on cafeteria accounts must clear these items as soon as possible. Seniors will not participate in graduation ceremonies or receive their diplomas unless all financial matters are resolved. • Students and parents should be aware that cell phones are prohibited on school grounds during school hours (7:25 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.) A phone is provided for student use at the main office desk. If a student is ill, s/he must go to the clinic and call a parent from the school phone. If confiscated, cell phones are returned to parents only during regular office hours, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. • Warm weather attire continues to be a concern. Please be sure that students dress appropriately for school as outlined in the dress code and previous memos from the principal. We will continue to address this issue as we approach the end of the year. In closing, as always we appreciate the support from the greater Lee-Davis High School community. We will strive to continually improve as a school and community with the confidence and diligence our students, parents, teachers, staff, school leaders, and citizens put forth. Thank you as together we “Keep Moving Forward!” Michael E. Bishop, Ed. D. Principal

are stubborn, but statistics are more pliable.” There are statistics out there that can refute or confirm any opinion. In Linda Tucker’s letter she stated that “fewer than five percent of the Southern people owned slaves.” While that is correct, in the Library of Congress Civil War Desk Reference it goes on to stat that “… less than five percent of the free Southern population, but slave owners were members of between 25 and 30 percent of all Southern white families. The head of the household was usually the actual slave owner, but other family members had use of the slaves; thus, the slave holding class was considerably larger that the U.S. Census figures might suggest.” It is true that some freed blacks owned slaves as well, although many free blacks owned their wives, children and other family members in order to keep the family together. There were also presidents that owned slaves, but, regardless of those facts, does that make slavery justified or right? I don’t need the governor to tell me how and when to appreciate my heritage. We have a rich, Southern tradition that can be attributed to contributions of all of our ancestors, black and white, throughout history. And, acknowledging that slavery was wrong does not diminish the sacrifices that many Confederate families made during the Civil War, fighting for a cause in which they believed. Many of us have a strong connection to our ancestry and where we come from, but with that we need to not only celebrate the rich heritage but understand we have a responsibility to recognize and understand our past shortcomings in order to continue building a rich, cultural history.

Thank you extended for successes Recently I’ve held a few events in the Mechanicsville community and I wanted to thank a few special places and people for helping to make my events a success. I had the privilege of holding my 4th annual Ashley’s Angels Spring Break Dance Camp for children with physical and intellectual disabilities and I was very excited to have the largest turnout ever at the camp.

I want to thank my church, Shady Grove United Methodist, for always providing a free space to hold my camp and welcoming myself, my campers/dancers and their families with open arms. I owe a huge thank you to Bruce Johansen and his fantastic staff at East Coast Graphics located in the Hanover Industrial Airpark for donating t-shirts for my campers and volunteers this year. Many thanks go out to my friends and volunteers who donated their time over spring break to help me make my camp such a special event …. thank you Emily Seal, Madison Stanley, Justin Fulwider, Libby Ryan and my brother, John Gregory, for all your hard work and efforts. I also recently held a bake sale for the Great American Bake Sale sponsored by the Share our Strength organization and raised a total of $455 to help end childhood hunger. I would like to extend a thank you to Atlee Little League for allowing me to have my bake sale on their opening day and I would like to thank Marty Wilson, president of Atlee Little league, and the whole board for welcoming my efforts and allowing me to use the fantastic facility they have. Another huge thank you to my friends in the Mechanicsville community for always supporting my volunteer efforts and a special thanks to everyone who baked and donated all the yummy goodies I had available to sell that day. I really appreciate everything you do for me. My final note of appreciation is for Chris and Darlene Blaum of Mechanicsville. I know I ask for a lot, but it seems like you are always there to help out — whether it’s $5 or $50 I’m asking for. The Blaum family is always the first to donate and I can’t thank you enough for your support. Ashley Gregory Mechanicsville Board member Governor’s Advisory Board for National and Community Service

Resident speaks out on Arizona bill (Editor’s note: The following was addressed to the Honorable Jan Brewer, governor of Arizona.) Dear Gov. Brewer, I am asking you to take the time to read how I feel about the Anti-Immigrant bill you recently signed into law. I’m asking you to begin the process to have this law repealed. We must stop the spread of the hate and racism it promotes.

I am 65 years old and came to the USA in 1962 with my sister at the age of 12; we came without our parents, escaping Cuban cictator Fidel Castro. I went to work for AT&T at age 18 and worked there for 33 years. My sister became a school teacher in Chicago at age 20. She obtained a PhD in psychology at age 49 and worked in special education for 35 years. Our story of hard work and success is typical of Latinos in America, not an exception. Arizona S. 1070 is spreading hate. Here are just two examples: Congressman Duncan Hunter, R-Calif. (former Republican presidential candidate) has introduced five bills to deny birth rights and deport children of undocumented immigrants. This is contrary to rulings by the United States Supreme Court in 1898 that said any child born in the USA and its territories overseas is an American citizen and it is contrary to the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Texas State Sen. Leo Berman has introduced a similar bill in the Texas legislature. As a citizen of the United States, I have always been active and outspoken, but, for the first time, I am scared of what is going on in America after 48 years, three children — ages 41, 38 and 34 — and six grandchildren — ages 22, 20, 18,15, 8 and 4. I am afraid. I am afraid for my children and grandchildren. I am afraid there can be a repeat of what happened after Dec. 7, 1941, to Japanese Americans who were put in internment camps with their children and grandchildren. We were at war with Germany as well as Japan, but we did not round up Germans. We rounded up Japanese because they were easy to stereotype like we Latinos are. About 50 percent of undocumented immigrants are Latinos and about 50 percent are from all over the world. But when we talk about “Illegal Humans,” the only people who come to mind are Mexicans and Latinos. Governor, one of the reasons you used for signing this law was that an undocumented immigrant killed an Arizona farmer. Look at the double standard. Dr. Bill Cosby’s son was killed in 1997 by 22-yearold Mikhail Markhasev, an undocumented Russian immigrant. But there was no groundswell movement to deport all white undocumented immigrants. But when a Latino undocumented commits a crime, it seems all brown people deserve to be stereotyped. This law is immoral and unconstitutional. Therefore, I am asking you to begin the process to repeal it. Raulin Angulo Mechanicsville

Hanover High Orchestra plays The Diamond Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com The Hanover High School Orchestra is in full swing for a spring season booked with special performances. A busy May schedule began on Saturday, May 1, when 40 student musicians performed their own arrangement of the National Anthem before the evening game between the Richmond Flying Squirrels and the Bowie Baysox. At 6:30 p.m., the Orchestra assembled behind home plate and spent several minutes laughing along with “Nutzy”, the team mascot. Then, when the Orchestra was introduced, the hushed stadium listened while Hanover’s students played The Star

Festival of the Arts and Sciences held at Patrick Henry High School on April 24. The students were led by guest conductor Dr. Chuck West from VCU. On May 4, the Orchestra performed for Hanover’s annual recognition of community volunteers at Hanover High School.

Appraisal event benefits church By Betty Booker Special to The Mechanicsville Local Carolyn and Lee Southern heard unexpected good news at the Old Church Antique Appraisals, Plant & Bake sale on Saturday, May 8, at the Immanuel Episcopal Church. Appraiser Gordon Lohr said their Japanese Mickey Mouse painting – a gift in the early ‘50s from an aunt stationed with her husband in Japan – is probably worth about $400. “Collectors like Mickey, Minnie and anything connected to Disney,” Lohr said. Southern said she was pleased with the result. She said she would sell Mickey on eBay. The annual spring event at the Immanuel

Episcopal Church included appraisals by three experts. In addition to Lohr, an historic property expert and antique appraiser, verbal appraisals were given by Marybeth Rabung, an antique appraiser from Ashland, and David Deal, executive director of Hanover Tavern and antique dealer. The Antiques Road Show-style event drew a steady stream of people curious about their antiques – and items they thought were old and maybe valuable but were, alas, neither.

Quality, not quantity, marks Arete’s first commencement By Jim Ridolphi mkinser@mechlocal.com It must be the season. Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling attended four graduations last weekend, providing the keynote address for thousands of students receiving diplomas. The grueling schedule didn’t stop him from making a stop in Hanover County and attending one small, but special, ceremony. Arete’ Christian Academy on Creighton Road held its first graduation last weekend, awarding diplomas to two seniors, John Belote and Samantha Durden. The school was founded five years ago by a group of parents seeking home schooling options in eastern Hanover County. “Some of us were driving 50 minutes to take our children to classes,” Academy director Debbie Sjorgen said. She teamed with several other parents to finalize an arrangement with Fairmount Christian Church to serve as the academy’s home base. Five years later, the school boasts an enrollment of 40 to 60 children receiving a combination of home schooling and academy based curricula. “We wanted to keep it small to maintain that family

atmosphere,” Sjorgen said. Last weekend’s graduation was emceed by local radio personality and humorous gospel minister Garet Chester. He provided the comic relief and introduced one very important keynote speaker, the lieutenant governor. Bolling and his wife Jean returned from Clifton Forge and a ceremony at Dabney Lancaster Community College the night before, but said they looked forward to the contrast of a smaller, more personal ceremony at Arete’. The following day it was off to Christopher Newport University to speak to a crowd of more than 10,000 people. “The fact that intrigued me about this ceremony was that it’s your first graduating class and it’s a class of two students,” Bolling said. “Very seldom do I actually get to know the names of the students,” he joked. “It’s neat to be able to look at you in the eyes and talk to you on a personal level as you embark on a new phase of your life.” Bolling offered traditional graduation advice, and told the students this was the beginning of a phase where they will begin their own decision making process. see ARETE’, pg. 20 `


Tailgate Toss needs teams Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com

The corn toss craze has swept the college campuses, tailgate parties and social gatherings and has now landed at Hanover Tavern. This nonprofit foundation has organized a bean (corn)-bag toss competition as a fund raiser for the 18th century building. Beginning at 6 p.m. on Friday, May 21, the contest will match 48 teams competing for a cash prize of $250. Corn Toss is similar to horseshoes except for the use of wooden boxes called corn toss platforms and corn bags instead of horseshoes and metal stakes. Contestants take turns pitching their corn bags at the platform, 30 feet away, until a team reaches the score of 21 points. A corn bag in the hole scores 3 points, while one on the platform scores 1 point. Visit www.hanovertavern. org for registration forms. You also may contact Laura Curzi 804-537-5050, ext. 21, or lcurzi@hanovertavern.org. Registration fee is $50 per team. Hanover Tavern is located at 13181 Hanover Courthouse Road in Hanover.

“Whatever you choose to do in life, find your passion,” Bolling said. “My dad used to tell me that if you love what you are doing, you’ll never work a day in your life,” he added. He also stressed the importance of faith and family as the teens embark on a new chapter in their lives. Bolling told the students to “dream big and set lofty goals for your life. If you set low goals, you’ll always achieve them, but you’ll never accomplish a single thing.” Bolling told the students of the achievements of Homer Hickam, a boy from a small coal mining community who set goals and became a rocket scientist. Hickam went to Virginia Tech, majoring in aerospace design and went to work for the government. “Over the course of his career, he had a hand in every one of our major aeronautical achievements,” Bolling said.

Today Hickam writes book challenging young people to dream beyond their wildest imagination. Francis Collins, a farm boy from the Shenandoah Valley, dreamed of being a physician. He attended U.Va. and other schools to obtain a variety of advanced degrees. “After a 30year medical career, Francis Collins formed a team who was the first to successfully map the human gene path,” Bolling said. “Not bad for a boy from the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.” John Belote plans to take a year off to earn some money and then attend Hampden Sydney College to study law. Samantha Durden will attend J. Seargent Reynolds Community College to study nursing in the fall. She has been home schooled since 9th grade. “I plan on going to J. Sargent Reynolds for two years, then transferring to a four-year school in hopes of one day becoming a nurse pratitioner,” Durden said.

Lollipop Kids run for fundraising purposes. These initiatives have now turned into Kristin’s fulltime job. ★ Hanover Interfaith Free Clinics received the “Spirit of Team” award. It started with one clinic established by members of St. James the Less Episcopal Church in Ashland about three years ago and has grown into five free clinic sites located in church buildings throughout the County. These clinics offer free medical, dental and podiatric care for uninsured adults and services have recently expanded to include mental health and vision care. Since its beginning, about 200 volunteers have served about 700 people at no cost to the patient. All staff members, including the medical and dental professionals, volunteer their time and services, which have been valued at over $1 million. Sixteen physicians, 14 dentists, 30 nurses, 13 dental hygienists and 90 administrative or general volunteers currently donate their evenings (some after a full day of work) in service to others. ★ There were two “Spirit of One” winners, Lorie Foley and Jill Kubichan. Lorie is a tireless volunteer for John M. Gandy Elementary School and serves as the fundraising chairman. Through her leadership the school’s large undeveloped outdoor space has been transformed into inviting learning gardens to enhance math and science lessons. Lori’s community involvement also includes serving on the Board of the Hanover Arts and Activities Center, co-chair of the Ashland Musical Variety Show and as an active member of St. Ann’s Catholic Church. Jill is a volunteer at Hanover Safe Place, which helps victims of domestic violence. She came to Hanover Safe Place two years ago as a sophomore at Randolph-Macon College and by the end of her summer internship was answering hotline calls as part of a

24-hour full-week shift, providing office coverage and public education about the services of the agency. Now a senior, she has never stopped volunteering, even when the “money ran out”. Through her volunteer experience, Jill not only made a difference in the lives of individuals in crisis but discovered her passion for social work and is now applying to graduate school to pursue this career. ★ SUPERVALU, East-ern Region received the “Commitment to Community” award. This category honors a Hanover business that exemplifies strong community values and a sustained commitment to supporting the community. In the 2008-09 academic year, SUPERVALU not only provided volunteers for 21 classes, including all 16 classrooms at Henry Clay Elementary School, but also donated $15,000 to fund the delivery of these programs. SUPERVALU recently became a corporate sponsor for Junior Achievement’s Finance Park, which gives students an opportunity to explore the impact of various financial challenges role-playing an adult in a simulated community. These partnerships are helping to prepare students to be financially responsible adults. Last year, Hanover citizens contributed 404,080 hours of documented volunteer service in the county. The total value of that contribution to Hanover County was nearly $8.3 million. Sponsors for this year’s awards were Rappahannock Electric Cooperative, Battlefield Press Inc., Ashland Wal-Mart, Covenant Woods and Owens & Minor. Each sponsor contributed $250 to the organization designated by the honoree during the nomination process. Special guest at the event was Virginia Shelton, a 104year-old resident of Ashland who is still actively volunteering at the Senior Connections Friendship Café. The Master of Ceremonies was Bill Bevins, longtime morn-

ing drive personality with Lite 98 AM. Performing were Kristin Wilson and Jamie Flanagan, both of whom were runnersup in the 2010 Hanover Idol competition. Volunteers also were personally thanked by the Hanover

Board of Supervisors, which designated April 18-24 as 2010 Spirit of Volunteerism Week in Hanover County. “We are all very aware of the invaluable service of Hanover’s volunteers,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman G. Ed

Rotary fundraiser to aid ‘Families of Wounded Fund’ Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com Eukonkanto 2010, a Finnish term translated as “wife carrying race,” will be presented on Saturday, June 12, by the Rotary Club of Mechanicsville at The Meadow Event Park (new Virginia State Fairgrounds) in Doswell. “Families of the Wounded Fund,” www. fotwf.org, will be the primary beneficiary of the fundraiser. The organization provides financial resources in support of family members/caregivers of military service men and women who have either been wounded in combat operations or injured as the result of line-of-duty activities in support of combat operations. The 501(c)(3) charity uses funds for lodging, meals, transportation, healthcare, child care, long distance phone calls, and a variety of miscellaneous needs by these family members/caregivers while they are attending to their loved ones. Beneficiary distribution is as follows: 60 percent to Families of the Wounded (taxexempt); 20 percent to Rotary Club of Mechanicsville Foundation to fund local community projects (tax-exempt); 10 percent to Rotary International Foundation (Polio Plus) (tax-exempt); and 10 percent. The club is looking for contestants, with a limit of 50 couples. The entry fee is $250 per couple. Couples are encouraged to seek sponsors from local businesses and community groups.

Checks can be made payable to the Rotary Club of Mechanicsville Foundation, a 501(c)(3). The race is described as a 277-yard obstacle course in which a couple races against the clock to complete the course in the least amount of time. A couple consists of a man who carries his “wife.” Each time the wife touches the ground between the start and finish line, a 15-second penalty is added to the couple’s race time. In Scandinavia, the winning couple wins the wife’s weight in beer. Since it is illegal to offer alcohol as a prize in Virginia, other prizes, equivalent to the wife’s weight, will be offered. The wife’s weight will not be announced. In terms of major sponsors, the Rotary Club of Mechanicsville is organizing the event. Local businesses will sponsor the event and prizes. Sponsorships include: starting line sponsor, $750; log sponsor, $500 (taken); water obstacle sponsor, $500 (taken); sand pit sponsor, $500; finish “event” line sponsor, $750; and weighing device (like a teeter-totter), $750 (taken). For more information on becoming a sponsor, contact Kevin Smyth at kevinsmyth@barreylane.com or call 723-4035. The mailing address for registration and checks is: Eukonkanto 2010, Rotary Club of Mechanicsville, P.O. Box 992, Mechanicsville VA 23111.

THE BRAIN-HEALTHY DIET The so-called Mediterranean diet involves eating abundant amounts of fruits/vegetables; olive oil as the principal fat; dairy products; moderate amounts of fish, poultry, and wine; low amounts of red meat; and regular exercise. It has already been found to boost heart health, and now research suggests that the diet may also be linked to less late-life cognitive impairment. This fi nding is based on a study of 1,880 older New York residents. Those who most closely followed a Mediterranean-style diet were at 40% lower risk for developing Alzheimer’s disease over a 5.4-year period than those with the lowest compliance to the diet. This fi nding shows that it is possible to make some non-genetic lifestyle and behavior changes that improve brain function. Research suggests that high cholesterol may contribute to stroke and brain cell damage. A low fat, low cholesterol diet is advisable. And there is growing evidence that a diet rich in dark vegetables and fruits, which contain antioxidants, may help protect brain cells. At HERITAGE GREEN ASSISTED LIVING, our 52-bed fully secured community was specifically designed with our residents’ needs in mind. We provide individualized care and assistance in a homelike setting, while maintaining each resident’s maximum independence. Presented by

Christine Smith Executive Director

P.S. Higher adherence to the Mediterranean diet is also linked to lower mortality and chronic-disease risk.

Via III. “Volunteers are making a difference in Hanover County and for that, we – myself and my fellow Board members – are very grateful.” A live Serviceberry tree was on display at the event. The tree will be planted at the Hanover County Administration Building as a permanent tribute to “Hanover’s People, Tradition and Spirit.” The tree will be a living tribute to all citizens, past and present, that have made Hanover a strong and vibrant place to live through their civic engagement. The planting of this tree also honors the retirement of Assistant County Administrator Marilyn Blake who has served Hanover County for 23 years. Marilyn was Hanover’s first fulltime volunteer coordinator and continued to support the expansion of the program into what is now the Department of Community Resources.

The suspect in a robbery at a Wachovia Bank ATM was captured on camera on May 12, 2006.

a black and burgundy baseball cap with a cross-like symbol embossed in the front. ❍ At 12:40 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 7, 2006, two men entered the FasMart at 9492 Chamberlayne Road and robbed the clerk of cash, lottery tickets and a carton of cigarettes. The suspects were seen leaving the area in a dark colored, older model Jeep Cherokee. The first, who showed a firearm, was described as being in his late teens to early 20s and wearing a dark colored hooded sweatshirt, long pants and dark colored athletic shoes with white stripes. The hood on his sweatshirt was pulled over his head. He also was wearing a baseball style cap under the hood. The second suspect also

was described as being in his late teens to early 20s. He was wearing a black t-shirt, oversized shorts and white athletic shoes. In this case, Trice said one of the suspects “actually went behind the counter, which is always dangerous.” ❍ At 10:40 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 28, 2008, the FasMart at 9200 Chamberlayne Road was robbed by a white man showing what appeared to be a handgun wrapped in a brown paper bag. He had approached the cashier and demanded money. He fled on foot after getting an undisclosed amount of cash. He was described as being 5-foot-7 to 5-foot-9 in height and weighing 140 to 150 pounds. He was wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt pulled up over his head, a dark colored ski mask, dark gloves, dark baggy pants and black shoes with white soles and white shoelaces. When these incidents occur, Trice said, officers start the investigation with a “comprehensive forensics evaluation of the scene, a detailed interview of the victim tellers and any witnesses at the scene.” “It’s always a combination of things that solve crimes — it’s never just one thing.” He also said they share information with other law enforcement agencies “to see if they have similarities.” A key to solving these cases, he added, is communication. “Our citizens are a big part of that and our local media partners too. I don’t think we could do it as efficiently as we do without them and I think everybody here recognizes that.” “The Sheriff ’s Office puts a lot of effort and considerable resources into ensuring bank robberies don’t happen,” Trice said. “The high visibility of our officers in our commercial corridors are in there in part to deter a potential criminal activity and to increase the probability of an apprehension should a crime occur.” ——Anyone with any information concerning these robberies is asked to call the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office at 3656140 or Crime Stoppers at 7801000.

Connor will join a select group of students in Washington, D.C., July 1-7, 2010, to study leadership and explore some of the United States’ most prominent monuments and institutions. From Capitol Hill to the Smithsonian Institution, and f rom histor ic Gettysburg to the Nationals Museum of American History, Connor will examine the characteristics of American leadership during times on national challenge and prosperity.

Raiders take tourney title, head for regions Atlee girls’ tennis caps perfect season with district crown By Jim Ridolphi sports@mechlocal.com Last week, the Atlee Raiders girls’ tennis team capped an unbeaten season with a district championship in the Capital District Tennis Tournament held at Lee-Davis High School. Atlee’s Yasmin Fotovat was named Capital District Player of the Year while the Raiders’ Duke Price, captured coach of

the year honors. Fotovat took the singles crown by defeating senior teammate Shao-Ching Tu in the singles final, 4-6, 6-2, 6-1. “I wanted Shao Ching to win her semifinal but I really didn’t want to play her in the finals but that’s the way it worked out,” Fotovat said after the match. The two singles finalists paired to defeat Varina’s Toni McDonald and Ashley Milo in the doubles finals making it a clean sweep for the Raiders. Atlee advances to the Central Region team tournament this

week along with number two Hanover. Rain delayed the semifinal round of the tournament on Wednesday, but play resumed Thursday despite cool temperatures and overcast skies. Fotovat breezed through her semifinal match against Varina’s Milo, but Tu found a more than game opponent in Blue Devil freshman McDonald. After dropping the first set, Tu found her stride and defeated McDonald, 6-2, 6-0. She continued that trend early in the finals match with Fotovat, and took a 4-1 lead in the first

set. Fotovat broke Tu to level the set at four games each, but Tu returned the favor in the next game and took a 5-4 lead, eventually winning the set 6-4. “The first set was a little rough for me getting started and Shao gave me a run for my money,” Fotovat said. “After that first set, I knew I had to see FOTOVAT, pg. 41 ` Jim Ridolphi

Henrico powers past Raiders in boys tennis By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com The Atlee boys tennis team was unable to repeat as Capital District Champions this season, falling to a talented group of players from Henrico. Because of rain delays, the district singles/doubles championships finished on Friday at Varina High School. Atlee’s Shao-wei Tu and Thomas Rishcoff came into the competition as the district’s top double duo but they could not overcome the inspired play of Charlie Leffler

At left: Atlee senior Shao-wei Tu and freshman Thomas Rischoff raced for a return during the Capital District doubles championship.

Henrico’s Arjun Venkat and Matt Zimmerman. Tu and Rishcoff got off to a fast start, taking the first game but from there it was all Henrico as Venkat/Zimmerman roared back in demanding fashion, defeating Atlee 6-0, 6-1. “Definitely not as good as the Henrico guys today,” said Atlee head coach Joey Rogers. “Not stereotypical of my guys for the season. We played a lot better through the season. I think it was a combination of a long week, some tough rivals and a hot day. They weren’t there best, which is unfortunate.” In singles, both Tu and Rishcoff were eliminated in the semifinal round. No. 2 seed Tu, a senior and defending district

champion and 2008 runnerup, simply could not keep up with No. 3 seed Zimmerman who was on top of his game throughout the tournament. Though Tu got off to a good start, Zimmerman played outstanding in recovery, upsetting Tu 6-3, 6-3. Though disappointed in his loss, Tu knew that his lack of playing time in the off season was a contributor. “This season I started running track and had a lot of success in it so I didn’t play tennis at all,” he said. For Tu, tennis was more of a hobby this season as he concentrated on track, which he will continue running for Christopher Newport University see ATLEE, pg. 41 `


Hayden takes reins of Lee-Davis football By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Last week Zach Hayden was introduced as the new varsity head football coach at Lee-Davis High School. Hayden hails from Roanoke, VA where he played high school football with Patrick Henry High before continuing his college career at UVA-Wise. Lee-Davis will be Hayden’s first job running a football program but he brings to the table 11 years of experience as an assistant coach. Hayden spent four years at Patrick Henry in Roanoke where he worked the weight room, coached the lines and defensive ends. “I was more of an offensive minded person there,” Hayden said, having worked his final season at Patrick Henry as the offensive coordinator. Moving to the Richmond area in 2003, Hayden spent five years at Varina High School under Coach Barry Chilcoat as the defensive coordinator and special teams coach.

FOTOVAT Continued from pg. 40 b

pick my game up and get mentally focused.” The senior who is headed to George Mason University to play tennis next year, took control in the second set with a combination of power serves and sharp ground strokes, taking the set 6-2. She ended the match with a 6-1 victory in the third set. Completing her second match of the day, Fotovat said she has an immediate plan of action to prepare for next week’s regional competition. “After my doubles match, I plan on getting some sleep and resting Friday and Saturday,” she said. “After that, I’ll work hard for regionals because I know it won’t be easy this year.” As Tu finished her sixth set

“Part of their recruiting process was a big thing for me, helping kids go to college,” Hayden said of his time at Varina. Hayden also worked with current LeeDavis assistant John Workman

at Varina. In 2008, Hayden moved back to Roanoke to work as an assistant under Coach Rob Senseney at William Fleming High School. “I learned a lot of

offensive stuff from him and the guys on that staff.” Hayden brings a winning tradition to Lee-Davis. “I’ve coached at three high schools. I played in college at UVA-Wise,” he said. “I’ve been coached at winning programs. In all of my eleven years, I think I’ve been on two teams that were under .500. I think I’ve only been on one team that was 500. “I think winning’s a mindset and I’ve been around some winners,” Hayden said. “I think the kids here have the mindset of a winner,” he added. “I don’t think it’s something I’ve got to come in and teach. As a coach I’m very blessed to have this opportunity because I don’t have to come in here and change the whole culture. Lee-Davis has won at football. They’ve been successful.” Hayden has yet to complete his staff but he’s happy with the work the current assistants have done. “They’ve done a great job with the transition from Coach

of tennis and prepared for the doubles competition, she said the workload is unusual, and demanding, but fun. “It is a lot of tennis, but it’s okay because I love to play,” she said. “We don’t usually play this much, but it’s been fun,” she added. For Price the tournament was an appropriate and deserved ending for a group of girls who have spent four years together. “My top three players are seniors, so I’m enjoying this year.” Price said it would be hard to say good-bye to this group of athletes. “It’s been a good year. The chemistry on this team was great.” The coach also pointed out that Fotovat’s designation as player of the year is deserved. “She has a scholarship to George Mason to play tennis so that says a lot about

her game,” Price said. “She’s an excellent player who is still improving her game and she’s a lovely young lady with a great sense of humor. It’s been my pleasure to coach her.” He had equally glowing comments regarding Tu. “She’s a great tennis player and there’s not much difference between her and Yasmin’s game,” Price said about his number two senior who is headed for U. Va. in the fall. “She’s been like a daughter to me over the past four years and we’re going to miss her.” Price said having two girls in the finals is a bit unusual even though Atlee has done it two of the last three years. “I root for both of them. I want them both to do well and play their best tennis.” The coach keeps the district crown and personal honors in

proper perspective. “It’s high school tennis. You’re always trying to become better, but it’s more about relationships. Life, lessons learned and the parents and students enjoying the sport.” Lee-Davis hosted the event, and its young team represented itself well, finishing third in the doubles competition with the team of sophomores Angelina Spertelli and Brittany Savage. Confederate coach Robert Almodovar said his team continues to improve and looks forward to a leveled district playing field next year. “Some of the top players in the district will be leaving, so the teams should be more evenly matched next season,” he said. The Raiders return their four through sixth slots, but will be forced to replace Fotovat, Tu and Christina Shiflett.

Charlie Leffler

With 11 years of coaching experience, Zach Hayden takes over as head of the Lee-Davis football program. Hayden has served as an assistant coach for Patrick Henry-Roanoke, Varina and William Fleming High Schools. Lee-Davis will be Hayden’s first stint as a head coach.

Meade and Coach Crittenden leaving,” Hayden said. “They’ve done a good job keeping things together here. I really respect that. I’ve worked in other situations where the transitions can be a little turmoil oriented.” “The good thing about these assistants is they understand the kids,” Hayden said. “They understand their abilities. I’m coming in. They’ve put in a lot of time already. It’s our team. We’re a group. “I’m a we guy not a me guy, I’m not an I guy,” Hayden said. “It’s about us as a team. It’s about a football family.” To help create team unity and help Hayden learn about his squad, the new coach plans to have the players attend camps throughout the summer. “I’m big on evacuating kids and watching them move,” Hayden said. “If you can pick things up at a camps and you’re able to showcase what you’re doing at a camp and work with what another coach is teaching I think that

shows that you’re coachable.” Hayden also plans to continue the spring/summer conditioning program created by trainer Mike Craven and Coach Jason Meade last year. Hayden’s mindset runs similar to that of Virginia Tech head coach Frank Beamer. “I like what Tech does,” Hayden said. “They run the football. They have good passing game. They play great defensive and special teams.” Hayden said Lee-Davis will run their own plays but he hopes his C-feds adapt a Hokie mentality. Hayden moves to the area with his wife Sharon, and 3-week old son Liam. Also last week, Lee-Davis announced that Josh Tyler will return to the Confederates as the school’s new varsity wrestling coach. Tyler is a Lee-Davis graduate and received his degree from Old Dominion University. Tyler has recently been coaching at Stonewall Middle School with the wrestling program.

ATLEE

“Man, I am stoked about having Thomas on the team for another three years,” Rogers said. “He really showed up this year, even more than I expected. “He’s got some room to grow but I’m happy for those growing pains if he’s on my team,” Rogers added. In the single finals, the sophomore Zimmerman continued his hot streak, defeating district player of the year Venkat 7-6, (7-5), 6-2 to win the Capital District title. The tournament also served as a display of young district talent. Only two seniors made it to the semi-final round, which included two juniors (Venkat, Lee-Davis’ Ryan Henry), two sophomores (Zimmerman, Hanover’s Taylor Napier) and two freshmen (Rishcoff, Hanover’s Connor Healy).

Continued from pg. 40 b

in the fall. As a freshman, Rishcoff played his best tennis of the tournament facing the district’s top player. In the semifinals versus Venkat, Rishcoff pushed the limits of last year’s runner-up before falling 7-6 (7-2), 6-4. For Rishcoff, it did not come as a surprise that his play carried him so far. “I knew Arjun, Shao-wei and Zimmerman and I kind of thought I’d meet them in the semis,” Rishcoff said. “I would probably lose but I’d give them a good match. I was very happy with that.” The tournament also showed Rischoff areas in which in needs to improve such as getting a little bit stronger and bigger as well as working on his backhand.

Hawks’ Chil(l)-dress cools Raiders’ bats Hanover ends Atlee’s run through county

www.mechlocal.com See slideshow online!

By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com The record books will show that Hanover senior pitcher Jacob Smith picked up the 11-6 win over host Atlee last Tuesday night. However, for anyone who watched the game, it was sophomore pitcher Chris Childress who handed Atlee their first and only regular season loss to a county team this season. In five and one-third innings of relief, the Hawks right-hander struck out seven, walked two and gave up two runs. “Chris threw very well,” said Hanover head coach Charlie Dragum. “Chris was one of the guys we were counting on early (in the season) and he struggled. “He’s found it again and is working hard. That was great to see him come out like that.” “It felt good,” Childress said. “I felt like I had my stuff. But I couldn’t have done it without my team behind me hitting. “I had a rough start but everyone still had confidence in me when I went on the mound,” Childress said. “Jacob Smith helped me out a lot.” Though Childress threw a brilliant game in relief, it was the Hanover bats that did the most damage, blasting Atlee senior pitcher Austin Young and the Raiders’ defense for five runs in the top of the first. The Hawks struck fast when Bryan Johansen led off with a double to right center. A sacrifice to right by Jared Lipscombe then moved Johansen to third. Next up, senior Eric Mayers drilled a home run shot over the left center fence for a 2-0 Hanover lead. But the Hawks were not through. Singles by Bryant Lowery and Andrew Knizner were followed by a walk of Ryan Long to load the bags.

A sacrifice to right center by Zack Broaddus allowed Lowery to come home for a 3-0 margin. Atlee had a chance to escape without further damage but poor decision making kept the Hawks at bat. With two out, Hanover’s Lew Johnson sent a shot to short and the Raiders Connor Overton chose to throw to first rather than get the force on Long at nearby second base. Overton’s throw went past first baseman Conner Hall and allowed Knizner to score. Then on a double steal, Long (2 for 3, 3 runs) took home avoiding a tag from catcher Mitch Keeler for a 5-0 Hanover lead. “The first inning happened so fast, by the time you blinked it was 5-0,” said Atlee head coach Kevin Elrod. “You can blame me for that or you came blame somebody else, but that’s not how we play the game.” The coach pointed out that with Coach Dragum in the other dugout the deficit was even worse. “You can’t get behind good coaching and we did that,” Elrod said. “It’s tough to come back.” Though Smith took down the Raiders’ order in the bottom of the first, the Atlee bats came to life in the bottom of the second, knocking him from the game. Atlee’s Brent West led things

off with a single past short and when Smith walked Keeler and Ryan Bettinger the bases were loaded. A sacrifice to right by Cody Farrar drove in West then Cody Mackey, pinch running for Keeler, scored when a pitch got past Mayers at the plate. Smith then walked Kenner Berry to reload the bags. A Hall line drive past short pushed in Bettinger and Berry trimming the Hanover lead to 5-4 and signaling and end to Smith’s night on the mound. The Hawks widened the margin once again in the top of the third when a Broaddus RBI triple into center drove in Long. Broaddus then came home on an RBI single from Johnson for a 7-4 Hanover lead. But once again Atlee had an answer as it took a while for Childress to get into a groove on the mound. Childress walked Farrar on four pitches. Farrar then came home on a RBI triple by Young (2 for 4, RBI). Young then pulled Atlee within one, 7-6, on a RBI shot to second by West. It looked as if Hanover was going to add to their score in the top of the fourth but a brilliant play from Overton put an end to the threat. With two out and Lowery on second, Knizner drilled a high liner towards short,

but Overton leapt into the air to make a outstanding catch. However, the Atlee bats were suddenly silenced by Childress who appeared to get stronger the longer he stayed on the mound. Over the final three innings, Childress gave up a total of three hits to the Raiders. “We don’t mind playing from behind but it was to the point where we just weren’t getting the hits,” Elrod said. “We weren’t disciplined at the plate tonight,” Elrod added. Dragum praised Childress’ performance. “He did a great job of getting out of that (second) inning jam then came in the next inning and he was a little bit off,” Dragum said. “But after that, man, he was just rolling.” “When you have that threefour run cushion you’re feeling golden out there,” Childress said. “It’s the easiest way to pitch.” Hanover added four more runs in the top of the fifth to create the final margin.

A double to center by Blake Spiers drove in Long then Johnson scored on a wild pitch from Atlee reliever Ryan Bettinger. Finally a two RBI shot into the left corner by Mayers (2 for 4, HR, 4 RBI) put a cap on the scoring when it pushed home Long and Lipscombe. The Raiders came into the senior-night contest needing one more win to complete a sweep of the other Hanover County baseball teams. The Hawks came into the game just needing a win. Both teams were young but it was Hanover who had suffered the most growing pains prior to the contest. But against Atlee, the Hawks turned in a veteran performance. “We’re just so young,” Dragum said. “I’ve got four freshmen and a sophomore starting. So, they’re making young mistakes at times…The kids played well tonight.” The loss drops Atlee (5-2,

11-7) into a Capital District first place tie with Lee-Davis. Even though they have beaten the Cfeds twice this season, if both teams end up tied at the end of the regular season, a play-off game will be used to determine which squad gets the automatic regional berth. The win by Hanover (4-3, 12-4) solidifies their claim on the #3 seed in the district. “We had to win this game to help solidify our 2-3 (game) spot,” Dragum said. “We’ve been at the top of the league the last six-seven years, however long we’ve been here and this is a little different for us.” Hanover…...... 502 040 0 — 11 12 0 Atlee ................042 000 0 — 6 6 2 Smith, Childress (2), Mayers; Young, Bettinger (5), Bolka (7) and Keeler.
