The Local Pick:

Taylor named assistant county administrator Hanover County’s former director of Human Resources has been named assistant county administrator. Jim Taylor’s promotion, which will become effective on July 1, has been announced by County Administrator Cecil R. “Rhu” Harris Jr. Taylor has serving as acting assistant county administrator since September 2008. “Jim provided great leadership to Hanover County as our director of Human Resources and has shown the capacity and ability to take on new challenges,” Harris said. “During his service as acting assistant county administrator he has demonstrated great talent to work beyond the bounds of human resources to provide leadership with our public safety departments. I know Jim will be successful in his new role.” Taylor supervises the departments of Fire/ EMS, Emergency Communications, Animal Control, Building Inspection and Community Corrections. He also serves as the administration’s liaison for the Community Services Board, Health Department and Juvenile Court Services. Taylor joined Hanover County

government in June 2000, when he was hired as director of Human Resources. He served in that position for eight years before being appointed acting assistant county administrator following the retirement of Cecil V. Martinette Jr. two years ago. “It’s been a very interesting transition and I’m still learning a lot,” said Taylor. “One of the advantages I had was that I already knew a lot about the departments because of my interaction with them over these past 10 years. I already knew the people. “Having had the chance to serve in an acting role has really provided an appreciation for the great work that our men and women do every day to serve the county. I’m just glad to be a part of it. I really appreciate the opportunity to meet this challenge and the confidence that the county administrator is showing in me,” Taylor added. “I look forward to helping all of our departments achieve their goals and objectives.” “This is an exciting time for some Hanover County public safety departments,” Taylor said. “This summer, for example, the county’s new radio communications system will become operational. I’m really looking forward to flipping that switch.” Construction on a new Black Creek Fire/EMS Station, part of the 2005 Bond Referendum, will begin later this year. “We’re really excited about being able to build that station to meet the needs of our volunteers, staff and the public,” Taylor said. Taylor obtained a bachelor’s degree in government from William and Mary and a master’s degree in public administration from Virginia Commonwealth University.

cide since January 2008. Trice said investigators found Dickerson’s body with no visible signs of trauma after they responded to a call from outside the home indicating Dickerson may be in danger. He said the call did not come from Chalkley. No cause of death was available Friday night, but a search warrant shows that investigators recovered a pillow and pillowcase and a blanket. Chalkley made an appearance Friday afternoon by video from the Pamunkey Regional Jail and was appointed an attorney. He listed income of $250 a week from an unspecified job. He told a Hanover Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court judge: “I can’t say anything about my actions.” Court records indicate he has worked in area junk and salvage yards. Chalkley, who is not related to Hanover Commonwealth’s Attorney Ramon E. “Trip” Chalkley III, has multiple felony and misdemeanor convictions in Chesterfield and Henrico counties and Richmond, according to court records; he also had been charged with assault last month after

Dickerson filed a complaint, according to court records. The records show Dickerson accused Chalkley in a complaint in April of stealing from her, using her credit card, not helping with household costs, threatening to harm her and using drugs. She also wrote that Chalkley, who is 6 feet 6 inches tall and weighs more than 200 pounds, had “shoved me through our home” and “choked me.” “Enough is enough,” she wrote. “I am just scared. I don’t want to be near drugs!!!” She described herself as having made a mistake in the relationship, writing: “What I was, was a sugar mama.” Court records Friday show Chalkley was released on $10,000 bond April 11. That was three days after he was arrested on a misdemeanor assault charge sought by Dickerson. A protective order that had been in place since April 8 was allowed to expire April 22, two days before Dickerson’s 67th birthday. In seeking an assault charge and protective order against Chalkley, Dickerson wrote: “Mr. Chalkley is on cocaine and I don’t want to be near it. He has threatened to snap me in half [and] choked me in our front room.” It was unknown Friday night whether Veterans, Cool Ties, Country Bumpkin, Creative Energy, CT’s Gifts and Crafts, Do The Jerk-ey!, Down Under Hats, Dynamo Soccer Club, Edmund Ruffin Fire Eaters Sons of Confederate Veterans Camp 3000, ETC’s Tie Dyes, Flourless Cakes, Get Creative Printing & Design, Gochenours Woodcraft, Hanover Academy, Happy Hour Candles/Frontline for Less, Health LInk Family Chiropractic, Hickory Hill Woodworking Inc., High Maintenance, Holly’s Korner Kollectibles, Home Grown Pottery, Infant and Toddler Connection of Hanover, Iossipi Beads & Jewelry, K9 Just in CASE, Kendall’s Woodcuttery, Lindsey Boo Creations Inc., Little Luxuries of Virginia, Mary Kay Cosmetics, Master Cho’s Tae Kwon Do, Mechanicsville Christian Center MOPS, Mechanicsville United FC Sabers Soccer, Miche Bags, Mountain to the Sea Creations, Mr. Fix-It, Nancy Reid, New Bethesda Baptist Church, New Generations FCU, Northside Baptist Church, Paramount Builders, Pole Green Foundation, Primary Health Group, Primrose School of Atlee Commons, Richmond Vein Center,

OPINION | The Local Views From the editor

Reader involvement proves its benefits Received a message on Twitter last Wednesday from Michelle Stanley of the Richmond Patriots. It seems information provided by a reader in our letters to the editor forum provided quite beneficial. In her message, Stanley said “Letters to the editor do work.” (We certainly appreciate that!) Since the letter to the editor paid off for at least one reader, its contents will be shared here: Saltwater Fishing is going to be taxed Isn’t it funny how we all have our own “hot button” issues, the issues that makes us stop in our tracks, drop everything and go write a letter to the editor or email every person that we happen to have an email address. Well, today that very scenario played out before my very eyes. My wonderful husband who is a VERY busy professional, just happened to read a letter to the editor in the local paper, Mechanicsville Local. He STOPPED everything and researched the issue, then emailed the following to all of his fishing friends. So to help spread the word and to illustrate how letters to the editor do work, I am turning the blog over to him today. Thanks, Michelle, for letting us know about this. While we always welcome your letters, it’s a rewarding feeling knowing that the message continues through the Internet. Speaking of the Richmond Patriots, Oscar Walker, a key leader in the Hanover organization, will be sharing his thoughts on information he has “gathered this past year in the defects of the statues which govern our county which are passed by the GA [General Assembly].” That conversation will appear in an upcoming edition.

Today we kick off a series of articles spotlighting the valedictorians and salutatorians in Hanover County Public Schools. It was a pleasure meeting and talking with these leaders of tomorrow. Their stories are most impressive. Melody Kinser

Global Youth Service Project Atlee High School ~ 9414 Atlee Station Road, Mechanicsville, VA 23116 ~ June 2010

Stonewall Jackson Middle School students recently completed a Global Youth Service Project. They replanted the front flower bed at the school using only plants that are native to Virginia. The students have been learning about things they can do to help the Chesapeake Bay. Native plants use less fertilizer, pesticide and water, which means there will be less runoff from this flower bed into the storm drain located close by. This makes the flower bed a “BayScape” design. The plants were paid for by a Hanover Master Gardeners grant entitled “Better Beds for the Bay” and purchased from Ashwood Nursery. The site prep work was donated by Accumark and Eugene Heath, a parent volunteer.

Two faculty members have recently earned recognition. Mr. George Knight, Social Studies, was chosen to present at the Virginia School Board Association Governor’s Conference on Education on July 20th. He will be presenting four thirty-minute mini-workshops dealing with his teaching strategy, “Today in History.” Mr. Dave Kannewurf, Atlee’s Athletic Director, earned the title, Certified Athletic Administrator by The National Association of National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators’ Association. We are very proud of this accomplishment. My years at Atlee High School have been the best time of my professional life. When I arrived in Hanover thirteen years ago from Virginia Beach I was taken by the natural beauty of the county and the warmth of the people. I had no place to live so I decided I would try the local church for assistance. Cool Spring was just a few yards away so there I went. I entered the office and met Betty, the financial secretary at the time. With a big smile, she said, “Let’s see if Aunt Dot has her room available.” She made a call, handed me an address and said,

“Be there at 4:00 this afternoon.” I arrived on time in old Avondale and was greeted by Dorothy. She was kind, yet cautious. She asked, “Can you produce a letter from your pastor stating that you are a good man?” I said I could. We decided on the rent, shook hands and the deal sealed. Little did I know that Dorothy was Lt. Col Hines’ aunt. After a few months, with a twinkle in her eye, she told me, “I had you investigated just to be sure!” It has been my honor to serve as Assistant Principal and Principal at Atlee H.S. The administrative team, the teaching staff, the support staff, parents and above all, the students have been wonderful to know. It is my belief that if you treat students with respect, they will respect you. I learned quickly, students know who is genuine and who is not. Whether they accept it or not, deep inside, they want us to care about them and respect them regardless of their color, race, gender, religion or academic standing. I will miss them as I will miss the entire Atlee community. Thank you for all you have taught me. One could not ask to be employed in a better place than Hanover County Public Schools. ~ Vince D’Agostino Principal

S&D Coffee, Specialty Beverage of Virginia & Virginia Artesian Bottling Company. We also owe big “thank yous” to our band members, Jim Hailey, Charlie Magruder and Larry Smith, for their wonderful musical entertainment throughout the evening, the businesses and individuals who donated gifts for the Balloon Prizes, Raffle and Silent Auction, the many volunteers who gave their evening to ensure the event ran smoothly, the participants for coming out to enjoy the wonderful food and drink while supporting this worthwhile cause and to The Mechanicsville Local for helping us “get the word out” to the community. Lastly, we especially thank our host, Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World, whose staff worked tirelessly from planning the event through the clean-up. Their support for A Taste of Hanover has been invaluable. Hanover County is very fortunate to have Bass Pro Shops as a member of our community. A Taste of Hanover, presented by Hanover Arc and Hanover Community Support Services, jointly raised more than $17,000 for people with disabilities in Hanover County.

The funds will be used for providing Summer 2010 camp and educational scholarships, respite care and communication devices, gait trainers, wheelchairs portable ramps and other adaptive equipment for children and adults.

Clarifying status question issue Much has been made over a law passed in Arizona that authorizes police to ask about a person’s immigration status. Some Democrats in Hanover have risen in strong opposition. In all the furor, they might not know there has to be initial contact with law enforcement before they can ask about a person’s immigration status. I have traveled to 22 other countries and in every one of them, I have been asked at one time or other to show my passport, and sometimes a visa, to prove I had permission to be there.

The petition against this common sense law says more about those who oppose it than those who support it. Why can other countries enforce (Editor’s note: The following was their borders without being called racist (or worse), and Arizona, when the addressed to Shannon Flounders in response to a letter that appeared in the federal government fails, can’t?

GRTC remarks addressed I am writing in reference to statements made by Ms. Kathy Shaw Clary before the Board of Supervisors of Hanover County, Virginia on May 12, 2010. These statements were made in support of GRTC running an express route to Mechanicsville and I quote from The Mechanicsville Local dated May 19, 2010. “Kathy Shaw Clary, GRTC director of marketing, said that former Mechanicsville District Supervisor Jack Ward had called asking about bringing the service to Mechanicsville. She said “it was more than two or three calls. It was many calls and e-mails.” These statements are absolutely false and I do expect GRTC to retract these statements immediately.

Demolition Derby By Pastor David Crisp, Senior Pastor

M

any of you who drive up and down Mechanicsville Turnpike each day probably noticed the demolition last week of a stately old two-story brick house that stood on the property right next to the church. Perhaps you had a certain amount of nostalgia or sentiment as that elegant piece of the past was removed to make way for the future “progress” of another new self-storage unit complex. We all have too much stuff! Maybe you thought as I did, “It’s a shame to see a house that seems so nice, even beautiful, be destroyed.” Now, I’m not one for chaining myself to a tree to prevent bulldozing. In fact I am a pretty ardent capitalist! Personal property is just that – property that belongs to its owner – and he can use it however he feels best! Still, it seemed kind of wasteful to bring down a historic house – one that had stood like a sentinel along “the pike” for so many years. At least it did … until I got a look inside. ou see, when the heavy equipment began to bring the house down, the outer walls collapsed revealing what lay inside. The interior of the house was trashed! Vandals and squatters had destroyed things inside, spray-painting vile and obscene words on the walls. One upstairs interior wall bore a twelve-foot-wide, graffiti-scrawled mural which depicted a man throwing a cross into a trash can. Beneath this was written an angry caption: “NO GOD!” I am not sure if this meant, “There is no God!” or if it was a voice of rebellion directed at God speaking a furiously negative answer to God’s offer of salvation: “No, God!” Either way, it was a slap in the face to a God who gave His Son to us. The image of the cross being thrown away will stay with me for a long time, causing me to ponder many things. first began to chew on the old saw: “You can’t judge a book, (house or man) by its cover.” I do not really know what is going on inside the house next door or the man standing beside me. What came next were lots of scriptures that seemed to apply, so here’s a short sermon preached by a house that was pretty on the outside but ugly on the inside: (1 Sam. 16:7) “Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.” (Ephesians 5:11-13) “Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. But everything exposed by the light becomes visible.” (John 3:19-2) “This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.” (Matthew 12:35-37) “The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him. But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken. For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.” (Luke 6:43-45) “No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. Each tree is recognized by its own fruit. People do not pick figs from thornbushes, or grapes from briers. The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks. (Hebrews 4:13) “Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.” (2 Corinthians 5:10) “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.” nd finally, (Proverbs 4:23) “Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.” Amen.

LETTERS Continued from pg. 8 b

my name in this matter to promote the case for GRTC is completely unprofessional and does not speak well for GRTC and its leaders. Ms. Clary should have had the courtesy to contact me as she was going to refer to me in her presentation. In addition, she definitely should have conferred with Ms. [Deborah B.] Coats since she is now the Mechanicsville District supervisor. The fact is, I met Ms Clary, then Ms Shaw, at a Greater Richmond Chamber of Commerce reception that was held approximately seven years ago and that is the only time that I have ever had any conversation with her in person or by telephone. At that time I was representing Hanover County as chairman of the board and as a member of the Greater Richmond Partnership. We chatted about Hanover but the conversation of GRTC

operation into Hanover County never came up. As I did with all officials that I met at various regional meetings, I offered an invitation to Ms. Clary to visit Hanover at any time both in person and a follow up e-mail. Never in conversation or email did I bring up the subject of GRTC operating a route to Hanover. Ms Clary is on a list of approximately 100 people that I forward Hanover News to, but, again, they do not address the matter to which she spoke. I went on several inter-city events that were sponsored by the Greater Richmond Chamber of Commerce with Mr. Rollo Axton, who at that time was the CEO for GRTC. If I ever showed any interest of GRTC having a route to Mechanicsville I would have spoken with him concerning this but I did not and I am sure he would tell you this also. The fact being that in one office or another I have served Hanover County for over 30

years and I have never supported a GRTC route to Mechanicsville. You may ask why. Simply, during my 50 years in Hanover as a Hanover official and/or community pharmacist and active member of the community I have had very few people ask me to look into this matter. In fact, 99 percent that spoke to me on this matter would not support it. I know that unfortunately Hanover officials have no voice in this matter and this is most disturbing as it affects the citizens of Mechanicsville. If GRTC had done an actual traffic study of the Park-n-Ride lot that they will be using they would see that it is not the right location. That is for both safety and convenience reasons. I agree with Ms Coats’s statement at the meeting that this is not the right place for a Park- n- Ride. Starting at about 4:30 p.m. each weekday the traffic on Old Mechanicsville Pike is backed up from the signal light at the

"You're never fully dressed without a smile."

Atlee Road intersection all the way up to the 360 bypass. In fact, on some days the traffic is lined on the 360 bypass trying to go down the ramp to Old Mechanicsville Pike. This is indeed a dangerous situation for all. A much preferred location would be further east out on route 360 where it would be easier and it would better serve drivers from King William and Caroline counties. How do I know this? I witness it first-hand as I on occasions work in Colonial Pharmacy right across the Pike from the park and ride. I ask GRTC to please rethink this route for two main reasons: 1. The vast majority citizens of Mechanicsville do not desire see LETTERS, pg. 15 `

even come from Fredericksburg — come to rehearse for two hours. We play pretty challenging music that you don’t get a chance to play in school, so it’s pretty awesome.” She also volunteers at Bon Secours Richmond Health System and the Richmond SPCA. Salutatorian Megan Ellenberger has a 4.629 GPA and will be attending Virginia Commonwealth University “on a full scholarship for music.” As a student in the VCU Department of Music, she plans to major in music education. Megan said her dream job would be to become a chorus teacher. “That’s been my dream since I was in third grade.” She also said she “would love to do guest conductings with select choirs for different district choruses.”

She said music is such a big part of her life with piano and voice lessons. She also lends her talents to the school’s theater productions, “mostly musicals.” “I do a lot of things involved with theater,” Megan said. “I’ve been in the one-act productions and mixed media, which is movie, student-made films. I’ve been in all four musicals every year and that’s something I really enjoy.” “I feel I’m so fortunate that I went to Atlee just for the music and theater experiences that I’ve gained.” Megan also praised “the strong academics and how the teachers hold us to a high standard and really treat us with respect as adults. I just feel like the teachers here really have contributed to my academic success.” Megan, the daughter of Chris and Daphne Ellenberger of Mechanicsville, serves as secretary of the Thespian Society and National Honor Society. She is a member of the Show Choir, Beta

Club, Honor Council and Math team. In the community, she teaches Sunday School to first-graders at Fairmount Christian Church and leads worship in the teen service. “A big thing that I’ve done for the past three years is I’ve gone to Ensenada, Mexico, over spring break to work with an organization called Yugo Ministries,” Megan said. The group builds houses for impoverished, needy families. “They are so grateful and they shower you with food and thanks, and at the end of it you’re thanking them for giving you the opportunity.” Megan, the oldest of four children, said she is “very close with my family. I love to spend time with them. That has been a challenge — to be as involved in the activities that I am — to maintain grades and still have that time to spend with them.”

I respect the fact that there was someone always available to answer my questions and deal with any of my concerns. I especially respect the fact that my house was sold so quickly in a very slow housing market. I would be happy to refer you to anyone whom I know may be either planning on buying or selling their home. Yours faithfully, Bruce R. Rillie

Honorary Relay chair named The American Cancer Society has selected Martha A. Nicholas to serve as honorary chair for this year’s Relay For Life of Mechanicsville. Relay For Life, called the world’s largest grassroots fundraising movement, mobilizes communities throughout the country to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and provide participants with an opportunity to fight back against the disease. Events are held overnight as individuals and teams camp out at an athletic track, park or other gathering area, with the goal of keeping at least one team member on the track or pathway at all times throughout the evening. Teams do most of their fundraising prior to the event, but some teams also hold creative fundraisers at their camp sites during Relay.

“Here in Mechanicsville, funds raised by our Relay For Life event are making an impact on so many lives, event co-chair Faith Van Goor. said “From making possible the vital American Cancer Society programs and services that support those in our community facing a diagnosis, to life-changing cancer research and medical discovery, to advocacy for access to quality health care for everyone affected by cancer, the money raised through Relay For Life of Mechanicsville is helping further the vision of a world with less cancer and more birthdays.� The Relay For Life of Mechanicsville will be held from 5 p.m. Saturday, June 5, to 6 a.m. Sunday, June 6, at Lee-Davis High School. To participate, visit the event website at www. see RELAY, pg. 19 `

Ashland police take part in Click It or Ticket event The Ashland Police Department will attempt to reduce crash related deaths and serious injuries by participating in the statewide Click it or Ticket campaign. In 2009, Virginia had the highest recorded seat belt use rate in history at 82.27 percent. Even with that good news, 756 citizens lost their lives on Virginia roadways; of those, 333 individuals were not wearing seat belts at the time of the crash. “Do you realize how many

lives could be saved, or injuries reduced if everyone would simply buckle up?” Chief Doug Goodman asked. “That’s why The Ashland Police Department will join law enforcement from across Virginia and the nation to reinforce Click It or TicketDay and Night.” In 2009, Virginia had a414 crash-related fatalities; of those, 195 were unbelted fatalities. These fatalities are largely men between the ages of 21 and 35 years of age. “Given this information”,

corridor, assistance with strategy and business planning, access to expertise within Dominion Resources, expert advice from business advisory boards, access to discounted professional services and introductions to sources of grant and investment capital. As the companies grow, they are expected to move to nearby locations in Hanover County, boosting the local economy. “The Dominion Resources GreenTech Incubator is pleased to welcome Marz Industries and Eastlight Renewable Ventures, LLC as the first clients in our new program”, David Lohr, executive director of DRGI, said. “Both companies are excellent examples of the types of creative entrepreneurs and innovative alternative energy solutions we are seeking to attract.” Marz Industries is developing an onboard hydrogen fuel solution, the Compliance I, which will enable long haul truckers to avoid extended periods of idling thereby reducing fuel consumption, maintenance costs and air emissions. The company plans to manufacture, service and commercialize integrated heating, air conditioning and power units using hydrogen fuel cell technology at the core of its safe renewable energy system. Future Marz systems will be adapted to power grid and non-grid applications in conjunction with wind, solar and wave energy. Eddie Miller, president of Marz said, “The DRGI gives us a place to work in a professional atmosphere with an extensive group of advisors on hand. The selection process into this

Goodman said, “citizens can expect to see law enforcement at all hours of the day and night enforcing all traffic laws, and we will be paying special attention to whether a seat belt is being worn.” A seat belt survey was conducted on Wednesday, May 12, at the intersection of Route 1 and Route 54. Seventy-nine percent of the drivers were belted. The Ashland Police will be attempting to increase this percentage in an attempt to decrease injuries in the event of an accident.

membership gives us credibility and allows us to say to our perspective investors, vendors or customers that we have this facility and advisor support made possible by Dominion Resources and Hanover County to help in our success as a business.” In addition to Marz, DRGI has accepted Eastlight Renewable Ventures, a company that develops, finances, owns and operates large scale, distributed generation solar energy projects. Eastlight offers commercial building owners the opportunity to generate economic and environmental value from an underutilized asset with no capital investment on the owner’s part. According to David Caldwell, managing director of Eastlight, “We manage all aspects of the project development process including financing, system design, permitting, roof warranty preservation, installation, interconnection and then provide all ongoing operations, maintenance and management of the system.” Customers agree to a long-term Solar Power Purchase Agreement for a portion of their building’s energy demand, at prices equal to or lower than their existing electricity rates. “Dominion is excited to have a role in encouraging the growth of the clean and green technology movement in Virginia,” Mary C. Doswell, senior vice president-Alternative Energy Solutions for Dominion, said. “It will take creative minds to find new, clean technologies that will help our state and nation become more energy efficient. Those minds now will have a place in Central Virginia to test their ideas, get assistance and be launched toward success.”

RivahFest Idol and pageant set It’s time for local youth to shine. This year there are even more opportunities for kids to take the stage at this year’s RivahFest on Saturday, June 19. In addition to the always-popular RivahFest Idol contest for singers ages 1218, organizers announce the addition of a pageant for kids ages 0-18 and the crowning of the first-ever Miss RivahFest. “Having the pageants added to the RivahFest activities this year is very exciting,” pageant chair Heather Taylor said. “This gives citizens a chance to show off their adorable children, and also for our older contestants to prove that along with beauty comes class and intelligence.” Taylor also said the committee is thrilled to hold the event for such a wide age range, including separate “Little Women” and “Little Men” titles for kids up to age 4. In addition to a Baby Contest with four different age categories ranging from 0-23 months, judges will crown winners for Tiny Tots (24-35 months), Tots (ages 3-4), Little Princess (ages 5-6), Princess (ages 79), Little Miss RivahFest (ages 10-12), and Junior Miss RivahFest (ages 13-15). The title of Miss RivahFest will go to the winner from the 16-18 year category, along with prizes and trophies to the top winners of each contest. Judging will begin at 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 19. on the stage in front of St. Margaret’s Hall.

A young talent takes the stage at RivahFest Idol 2009. Young people between the ages of 12 and 18 are encouraged to register now in order to participate in the preliminary competition on May 29 and June 5.

Pageant entry fees range from $10 to $20 and the deadline for applications to be returned is Friday, May 21. Applications and other pageant details are available by visiting www.rivahfest.com or may be picked up at the main office of Essex Bank. For other questions, parents and contestants may call Heather Taylor at 445-1640. And who could forget RivahFest Idol? This is a chance for talented singers to compete for the coveted title, which comes

along with a $500 cash grand prize. “This is one of the most popular RivahFest events,” said RivahFest Idol chair Liz Martin. “It’s great recognition for our young people, and great entertainment, too.” Selection of singers ages 12-18 will begin with preliminaries to be held on Saturday, May 29, and Saturday, June 5, at Tappahannock Elementary School. Aspiring Idols must register before the start of preliminaries and should be prepared to perform one song of up to two minutes in length without musical accompaniment. The singers will be judged on their song selection, talent, star quality and overall performance by an expert panel that includes local musicians and music educators. Up to 10 talented finalists will perform at RivahFest on the stage in front of St. Margaret’s Hall at 2 p.m. Then judges will choose the RivahFest Idol and the grand prize will be awarded by sponsor Riverside Tappahannock Hospital. The top two finishers will sing an encore on the main stage at around 5:30 p.m. Contest rules and entry forms are available at Riverside Tappahannock Hospital at the receptionist desk and at www.rivahfest. com. There is no entry fee for the Idol contest. For more information, contact Angela Jones at 443-6015.

Garden club beautifies HHS entrance Last fall, several members of the Old Ivy Garden Club of Hanover County met with George Sadler, the principal of Hanover High School, to discuss landscaping the flagpole area in front of the school. After obtaining approval from the Hanover County School Board, they worked with Juli Michael of Edâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Landscaping in Mechanicsville to replace the poor soil and put down weed blocking material and mulch. After many weather-related delays, on March 25, the horticural students of Adrienne Austinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s class worked with the members of the garden club and planted shrubs and put down paving stones and two benches. As this project was completed, several staff members at the high school, as well as the garden club committee, held a dedication service to include the students who are currently enrolled and those who will be

Confederates down Atlee to claim No. 1 Experienced Kluver gets his win By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com As a freshman, Lee-Davis pitcher Michael Kluver was put into a pressure-packed situation. It was the Capital District tournament, a possible region berth on the line and Kluver was on the mound. The freshman took a loss in that game, but it merely served as a building block for the future. “I remember he pitched a great game and we came up a little short,” said Lee-Davis head coach Kenny Lewis. “I reminded Mike, ‘You know kid, when you’re a senior you’ll build on this.’ Now a senior, Kluver got his chance on Friday night. The C-feds were battling Atlee in a district tie-breaker for a top seed and regional berth. It was the bottom of the seventh and the Raiders had just trimmed the Lee-Davis lead to 6-5. There were two outs, Atlee’s Cody Farrar was at the plate and power hitter Austin Young stood in the on deck circle. Kluver admits he was a little nervous. “I got a little tight but I just stepped off the mound, relaxed, and just went to work and let my mechanics do everything.” The game-on-the-line moment was one Kluver relished. “I’ve been doing this for

42

a while so that’s what I look forward to,” he said. “I like going www.mechlocal.com out there in tough situations See slideshow online! and giving my team a chance to win.” The experience of three years paid off for Kluver as he struck out Farrar to pick up the save and guarantee Lee-Davis a berth in the regionals. “That kid was pitching in some big games for us as a freshman and we were putting him in some spots where you ideally, really wouldn’t want to put a freshman,” Lewis said. “All he did was step up and give everything he’s got and that’s all the kid has done all four years and it all pays off. He gets a regular season championship.” The regular season title also gave the C-feds a feeling of redemption. Lee-Davis came into the contest with only two Capital District losses, both to Atlee. But they also felt from the beginning of the season the district title was theirs to lose. “We knew we were the best team in the district by far,” Kluver said. “We just had to get out there in practice and get it done.” Lee-Davis senior catcher Will Connerley agreed. “We figured we had the most experience in the district,” he said. “We figured it would be our district and we laid an egg with Charlie Leffler/The Local Atlee twice and tonight was our Ecstasy and agony: Lee-Davis senior catcher Will Connerley, left, points a finger to the sky in victory as Atlee’s Cody Farrar pounds chance to get back. The Lord the ground in frustration. In the bottom of the seventh, Atlee trailed by one run with two out, when Lee-Davis pitcher Michael blessed us with another chance Kluver struck out Farrar to end the game giving the C-feds the Capital District regular season title and a berth in the regionals.

Raiders out-matched in regional championship Godwin juggernaut too much for Atlee By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com When the Atlee girls stepped onto the Cosby High School tennis courts against Mills E. Godwin in the Central Region Championship, they knew victory would not come easy. Even though both teams came into the contest undefeated on the season, Godwin’s 18-0 record carried more weight than Atlee’s 16-0. But the strength of the Eagles streak did not reside strictly in the number of wins they had notched this season but rather in the numbers three, 10 and 70. Under the direction of head coach Mark Seidenberg, Godwin has become a virtual dynasty in high school girls tennis. Atlee knew it was facing a team that had won three consecutive AAA state titles and was in search of a record fourth. The Eagles were also a team that had won the last 10 Central Region titles. But perhaps most impressive was the fact that Godwin was riding a 70-match winning streak, deserving of the nickname the UConn Huskies of high school girls tennis. “I don’t know,” Seidenberg

laughed. “Hopefully we’re not as hated.” Therefore it really came as no surprise that the Eagles streak saw little challenge from Atlee as Godwin moved their winning streak to 71 consecutive matches with their 11th consecutive Central Region title; 5-1. “They’ve got a good tradition for us and others to shoot for in their tennis program,” said Atlee head coach Duke Price. In #1 singles, Godwin freshman Kelly Stewart held off a strong first set rally from Atlee senior Yasmin Fotovat to pull out the win 7-5, 6-2. With a slot in the state tournament already sealed, Fotovat came into the match loose. “Really I was just out there having fun today,” she said. “I had nothing to lose.” In the two through four slots, a trio of Godwin seniors Nicole Parker, Meg Kristofak and Maddie Wood took out Raider seniors Shao-Ching Tu, Christina Shifflett and freshman Madeline Wills in straight sets. Godwin’s Haley Moses rallied from a first set deficit to beat Atlee’s Shannon Heard 6-2, 6-1 in the #5 matchup. The Raiders picked up their lone win of the championship

at #6 when freshman Katharine Leitch defeated Godwin freshman Abigail Randolph 6-4, 6-0. “Katharine Leitch played a great match,” Siedenberg said. “She had a positive attitude and she played really well.” Though his team fell, Price believes his Raiders will learn from the experience of playing in its first regional championship match. “It’s just good experience whether you win or lose,” he said. “Just being here and representing the region. There’s a lot of good tennis players around Richmond so they should be proud.” With their second place region finish, the Atlee team advances to the state tournament for the first time in over a decade and only the second time in school history. The Raiders have regularly had good individual players but team accomplishments have not been a standard. This year’s Atlee squad was different. “Look at Godwin,” Price said. “You’ve got to have six solid players and this year we’ve had six solid players. Not quite good enough to beat Godwin but they’re solid enough to get to this point. We’re looking forward to going to the state tournament. “It’s a team effort and these

girls have stuck together all year with the parents and supported the program,” Price added. “Everybody wants to win but there can only be one winner. I congratulate the Mills Godwin team. They’re a great team.” Both Atlee and Godwin advance to state playoffs June 1. Godwin will host the Eastern region runner-up while Atlee will travel to the Eastern champion. Though his Eagles ran away with the region championship, Siedenberg said state opponents

should not underestimate the Raiders and he would not be surprised to meet up with Atlee again. “I like our chances,” Siedenberg said. “I don’t know who’s coming out of north but we’ve scouted them a little bit based on the internet. Atlee’s just as good as those teams are. I think they’ll have to play pretty well to beat the Eastern champ but they have depth and I think they can do it. “I would like to think that we could play (Atlee) in the finals,”

Siedenberg said. “I’d love to see two teams from the Central Region play in the finals. That’s great for tennis around here.” Mills Godwin 5, Atlee 1 Singles: Kelly Stewart (MG) d.

C-fed and Patriot girls take district track titles By Dave Lawrence For The Mechanicsville Local Teamwork, depth and talented athletes enabled Hanover County teams to sweep the Capital and Colonial girls outdoor track championships at the dual-district meets Friday at Sports Backers Stadium. Montasia Golden won three events and contributed to a winning relay team to help lead Lee-Davis to its fifth straight Capital District title. The three

Mechanicsville schools swept the top three spots in the Capital girls team standings. Lee-Davis amassed 184 points, followed by Atlee with 133 and Hanover with 93. Lizzie Powell won two events and ran on a victorious 400-meter relay team to help Patrick Henry emerge from the shadow of Deep Run and claim the Colonial District title with 151 points to the Wildcats’ 129. Douglas Freeman was third with

102 points. In the boy’s track championships, Atlee fell a few points behind Capital District winner Highland Springs, 177 to 171. Lee-Davis was third with 130 points and Hanover finished fifth with 51. Patrick Henry finished fifth in the Colonial boys meet with 73.5 points, well behind winner Mills Godwin’s 134 points. Douglas Freeman was second with 98.5 points and Deep Run third with 93.

Lee-Davis coach Neil Mathews said the Capital District win was the culmination of a goal the team had set for itself at the beginning of the year and the continuation of a trend that began four years ago. “We thought we had a pretty good team going into this year, so that was our goal – we had hoped that we would be able to win the district this year,” Mathews said. “We had won it the previous four years. I didn’t

want the kids to be overly confident, but I wanted them to go into this season thinking about putting in a complete team effort at the district meet.” Patrick Henry coach Scott Brown, who won Colonial District coach of the year, agreed that a “great team effort” is required to earn championships. “Some of the older kids start putting it together, you know, how you win a track meet,” Brown said. “You’ve got to score

points in all areas. It can’t just be one or two people carrying you all the time. It’s got to be some of those fourth, fifth, sixth place finishes – those points add up. We try to share with our kids that every single point counts when we start looking at the district, region, and state meets.” Nevertheless, great individual efforts are required as well.

most of the season, came back at the end to win the long jump, the 100-meter and 300-meter hurdles, and ran a leg of the Confederates’ winning 1,600meter relay. She also finished second in the high jump. “I didn’t think I was going to do as well as I have so far, but I’m finally putting it together,” said Golden, who added that she had only been running a couple of weeks since recovering from her injury. “For me, it’s like the more meets I run, the better I’ll get at things.” Joining Golden in the win column for Lee-Davis were Amanda Lineberry in the 1,600meter run, Tiel Westbrook in the 800-meter run and Bonny Turnage in the 3,200-meter run. Lineberry, Westbrook, and Rachel Chudoba were Golden’s running mates in the 1,600 meter run.

fourth in the 100-meter dash and 300-meter hurdles. Powell’s teammates Sydney Hobart and Haley Sellers finished second and third, respectively, in the pole vault. Nevertheless, she wasn’t entirely happy with her performance. “I was really excited I won and happy that our team got a one-two-three sweep,” Powell said, “But I was a little frustrated and I felt like I kind of let myself down because I wanted to perform better than what I

did, which was 11-6. Coming from doing a 13-3 jump, I set my goals higher, but I did the best I could.” Other Patrick Henry winners were Megan Bondi in the high jump and Shyra Molton in the 200-meter dash. Molton, Jessica Shelton, and Brooke Perdue joined Powell on the 400-meter relay team. In the Capital District boys meet, Atlee had three winners: Chris Pillow in the pole vault, Andrew Catanese in the 3,200meter run, and the 1,600-meter relay team of Michael Atkinson, Matt Combs, Shaowei Tu and Clay Burris. Lee-Davis’ Cody Snyder was a double winner – in the 1,600-meter and 800meter runs. The Confederates’ 3,200-meter relay team of Josh Rogodzinski, Brandon Woody, Caleb Wyatt and Israel Vaughn were also winners. A Hanover quartet of Baylor Dickerson, Michael Goolsby, James Poyer and Lucas Nachman won the 3,200-meter relay. Patrick Henry’s only winner in the Colonial District boys meet was Tony Green in the 110-meter hurdles. Green finished second in the long jump, third in the high jump, and was part of the Patriots’ second-place 400-meter relay team along with Ricardo Molton, Jayrin Waller and Minh Phan.

and we had to make the best of it.” For Kluver the losses to Atlee actually helped the team in the long run. “Those were two back-breakers, we were winning both games and just let it slip away,” he said. “I think that really taught us a good lesson on how to finish games and just keep playing.” And no one can deny that Lee-Davis came out to play. Connerley stepped to the plate as the lead-off batter, took the first pitch from Atlee’s Luke Bolka and sent it over the right field fence for a 1-0 C-fed lead seconds into the game. Connerley, who recently moved into the lead-off slot, looked at the lineup change logically. “The way I took it as a philosophy is that the first pitch of the game is usually a fast ball and it’s usually right down the middle,” he said. “I just looked for the fastball and committed to if it’s anything but a fastball lay off it and see another pitch. It was a fastball right there.” Connerley’s home run immediately changed the complexion of the game, firing up his Lee-Davis teammates while stunning the Atlee opponents. “That was huge,” Kluver said. “That really set the tone of

the game. If he hadn’t done that this game probably would have turned out differently.” “That kind of jump started things (for us) and that kind of sticks in their craw for a few innings,” Lewis said. The home run showed its effects in the Atlee bats. Facing C-fed pitcher Jordan Boze, the Raiders were hitless over the first two innings giving LeeDavis a chance to break things open in the top of the third. Connerley (1 for 2, HR, 2 runs) led off with a walk and Kluver joined him on base when what should have been a double-play ball to short was bobbled, setting up a pattern of missed opportunities for the Raiders. With two runners on and no outs, Billy Steel, who turned in a stellar performance, going 1-for-2 with a RBI, two runs scored and three stolen bases, singled up the middle to drive in Connerley. The two C-fed runners moved into scoring position on a wild pitch and a sacrifice to right by Michael Thomas drove in Kluver for a 3-0 Lee-Davis lead. The Atlee pitching continued to go south as Steel then scored on a wild pitch and Jordan Boze reached after being hit by a pitch. Pinch-running for Boze, Logan Heckman moved

to second then third on pitches in the dirt. Next up, Lee-Davis big man Jonathan Munn, who was impressive throughout, going 2-for-3 with an RBI and two stolen bases, lofted a shot over second to drive in Heckman for a 5-0 lead, which signaled the end to Bolka’s day on the mound. Though reliever Ryan Bettinger walked the first batter he faced, he struck out the next two to escape the third with no more damage. “They capitalized on mistakes,” said Atlee’s Austin Young. “When we had an error up the middle they capitalized and put four up on us by the end of the inning.” In the bottom of the third the Atlee bats finally came to life. With one out, Bettinger (2for-3, 2B, run) singled to right and Chop Pulisic reached on a short blooper to third. A double down the left line by Farrar drove in pinch-runner Steven Edmonds to get the Raiders on the board. Next up, Austin Young drilled a shot that clung to the left field line for a double, driving in Pulisic and Farrar to pull Atlee within two, 5-3. It appeared the Raiders would pull even closer when Young (1-for-2, 2B, 2 RBI) advanced to third on a groundout by Brent West, but missed

opportunity struck again. When it appeared that Boze had baulked on the mound, Young took off for home only to be easily thrown out at the plate. “Sort of a stupid base running thing,” Young said. “I thought (Boze) moved but it doesn’t matter if they don’t call it. It’s all hearsay from there. If it’s not called, it’s not called. “You win some, you lose some,” Young added. “Bad base running comes back and haunts us when you lose by one.” The protests of Atlee coach Kevin Elrod went unabated. Though neither team scored over the next two innings, Lewis decided to make a pitching change in the bottom of the fifth, sending Kluver to the mound to replace Boze. “Jordan, it seems historically this year at least, he kind of hits a wall,” Lewis said. “He seemed to be going along then they had the inning where it seemed they were squaring some balls up. So we felt like when they got back to the top of the lineup we’d see where Jordan was. “He was going 2-0, 3-1, he was getting behind hitters,” Lewis added. “It just seemed like this game was too important to take a chance when we’ve got Mike fully recovered and ready in the outfield. So it seemed to be the logical move.”

Jenkins and Ruch go to NCAA Staff reports This time last year Jackie Jenkins and Ryndee Ruch were leading their Atlee softball teammates to a Capital District title and quarterfinal game in the VHSL State Tournament. This year as members of the Radford University softball team, the pair went to the NCAA Softball Championship. Radford University (36-5 over all – 16-2 Big South) won their second straight Big South regular season title and second straight Big South Tournament Championship. In winning the Big South Tournament Against Kluver, Atlee trimmed the C-fed lead to 5-4 in the bottom of the sixth. With two outs, West doubled past a diving Hank Parsley at third then scored on a Paul Keyes single to short. Lee-Davis moved the gap back to two in the top of the seventh when a Boze sacrifice to deep right drove in Steel for a 6-4 C-fed lead. But the Raiders came out strong in the bottom of the seventh. DH Kenner Berry led off with a double to the center field fence then came home on a Pulisic sacrifice to center. But Kluver came back even stronger with two outs to strike out Farrar (1-for-3, 2B, RBI) and end the game. The victory showed that Lee-Davis is playing as a complete team with the post season on hand. “It was an absolute team effort,” Lewis said. “We were energized on the bench and everybody contributed and as a coach you really like to see that.” In the opposite dugout the Raiders knew they faced a tall task coming into the game. “It’s really hard to beat some teams three games in a row,” Young said. “We knew we had to come with our A game and just knew we had to pitch well and play our game this time to. We knew

Championship Radford obtained the conferences automatic bid into the final field of 64 that ultimately ends at the Women’s College World Series in Oklahoma City. In their NCAA opener, Radford fell to No. 24 ranked Florida State 10-1. The Highlanders bounced back to elimiate No. 4 seed Elon 8-0, setting up a rematch with FSU. The second time around, Radford eliminated the Seminoles 3-2 to set up a regional final game vs No. 9 ranked Georgia. Radford fell 8-1 to the Bulldogs. they weren’t going to give us anything.” The Atlee loss means they will now have to beat #3 seed Hanover on their home field in the Capital District semifinals for a shot at a regional berth. “It’s going to be a hard game against them,” Young said. “They’re fresh. Our pitching, we’re throwing a lot of people tonight and we’ve got to come through on Tuesday and have a real good pitching performance against them.” Atlee’s game is one Lewis is glad his C-feds do now not have to play as they had already beaten the Hawks twice. “I think it’s hard to beat a really good team three times,” he said. “We felt that way in tonight’s game. We felt that people come out, play clean, play smart, it would be difficult for Atlee to beat us three times. Hanover’s a very good baseball team and that would not be preferred way of getting into the regionals. To beat them on Tuesday is not the preferred route.” Lee-Davis............104 000 1 — 6 6 0 Atlee ....................003 001 1 — 5 8 1 Boze, Kluver (5) and Connerly; Bolka, Bettinger (3) and Keeler.

Tyler brings Mixed perspective to Lee-Davis New wrestling coach also a MMA fighter By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com When Lee-Davis High School tabbed Josh Tyler to head of the C-fed wrestling program, the Confederates not only brought in a new coach, they brought in a original perspective on the sport. There was no question that Tyler had a solid background in wrestling. As a wrestler for Lee-Davis from 1999-2003, Tyler was part of an elite Cfed program that completed a stretch of six straight Central Region Championships. On an individual level, Tyler won a pair of district and regional titles and competed in state tournaments. During his four years at Old Dominion University, Tyler worked as an assistant coach at several beach schools then after graduation became head wrestling coach for Stonewall Middle School. This past January, Tyler took 13 members of his Stonewall team to the VACW Middle School State championships where four placed in the top six. But it is the diversity of Tyler’s experiences that makes him a unique choice for LeeDavis. Unlike a majority of high school wrestling coaches, Tyler remains active in competition. However, Tyler’s mat time does not come in wrestling but rather Mixed Martial Arts. Last October as a MMA fighter training at Mechanicsville Martial Arts, Tyler took the 155 light weight championship in Virginia’s Gladiator Fight Club. He then defended that title in the Dominican Republic. This past March, Tyler dropped to 145 to add that GFC title to his collec-

46

tion and currently holds a 6-0 record as an amateur. Next month, Tyler travels to the Dominican Republic for a fight in the Combate Extremo organization before making his professional debut in October. And because the high school schedule will take place during his professional off season, Tyler does not see a conflict between the two jobs. “You can’t train at peak year round,” Tyler said. “You have to have times when you’re building and times when you’re tapering back. During the months of wrestling season will kind of be my recovery phase.” However, as a professional fighter, Tyler’s wrestlers will get an added incentive from their coach. “It will be good because I’ll still be active,” he said. “I’ll still be training along with my wrestlers. That’s what I feel is an added bonus that I have. Not only can I teach the guys but I’ll be training right along with them so I feel that will help motivate them and inspire them in some ways to train harder.” Likewise, Tyler said parents of high school wrestlers should not be concerned with MMA methods working their way into his coaching. “With or without the MMA, my coaching will be the same,” he said. “The intensity I expect out of my wrestlers is the same regardless. It just so happens I compete in a sport that a lot of people deem as violent. But it’s really a sport no different than boxing, no different than wrestling. The objective is to beat your opponent. It’s just the method you’re allowed to beat your opponent is expanded in MMA. “There’s always going to be people who won’t understand or have cause for concern,” he said. “You’re going to have that no matter what. You just have

Lee-Davis High School recently announced that former C-fed Josh Tyler will take over the wrestling program. Tyler brings a unique perspective to the job as he is also a MMA fighter.

to be open and communicate with people so they know where you’re coming from and have a better understanding of what you’re trying to do.” There are few similarities between MMA fighting and high school wrestling, but Tyler sees one as an avenue to eventually compete in the other. Because college usually signals a career end to many wrestlers, MMA is now providing side roads to the competitors. “After I finished my collegiate career I still wanted to compete,” Tyler said. “I wasn’t at the Olympic level and there really wasn’t a lot to do.” When Tyler discovered some of his former ODU teammates were training for MMA

he thought he would check it out and liked what he saw. “It’s really where I feel the sport (wrestling) is heading,” he said. “It’s kind of good thing because MMA’s the mainstreamed sport of wrestling. You’re seeing most MMA fighters come from a background of wrestling so it’s given it a lot of recognition and credibility. “It’s one of those things, right now wrestling by itself doesn’t have the same popularity as football, basketball or baseball, where people know a lot about it,” Tyler said. “Now with the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) being so popular, they’re talking about NCAA champions coming in there and what their

wrestling background brings to the table. It’s starting to be a little bit more of a buzz.” Most notably Oklahoma State’s Johnny Hendricks, a two-time NCAA wrestling champion, has successfully made the transition to MMA where he currently holds a 5-0 record. As a high school coach, Tyler is enthusiastic about the future of the sport in the Richmond area. At Lee-Davis, Tyler becomes the second C-fed alum to take over a Hanover County wrestling program, joining Aaron Bradley who had built the Hawks program into a perennial Central Region contender. Tyler hopes that the pair of

former Confederates not only continue the growth of wrestling in Hanover County but the entire region. “I think it’s going to be good, two guys coming from the same program and staying in the Central Region and are like-minded in their endeavors to reach the top,” he said. “I think it’s going to bring up the region and that’s one of the things I’d like to do. Not only help Lee-Davis become a top team but continue to build the Central Region. The Central Region is now starting to make a name for itself.” Tyler takes over at Lee-Davis for departing Coach Thomas Riley who stepped down at the end of the season.
