Rotary event to benefit Families of Wounded Eukonkanto 2010, a Finnish term translated as “wife carrying race,” will be presented at 9 a.m. 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 (tax-exempt); 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.

A pilot was slightly injured on Tuesday, June 1, when a small, kit-built airplane experienced engine trouble, overshot a runway and flipped onto its roof at the Hanover County Municipal Airport. Virginia State Police Sgt. Thomas J. Molnar said the pilot, Raymond Swanson, 56, of Richmond was checked out at the scene of the crash, which occurred about

1 p.m. Molnar said Swanson was piloting a 2009 Van’s Aircraft RV-9A when the single-engine craft apparently experienced engine trouble. When Swanson tried an emergency landing, he overshot the runway and landed in a grassy field about 50 feet north of the runway and the craft over-

turned. The Federal Aviation Administration has been notified, Molnar said. The manufacturer’s website says the RV-9A is typically outfitted with a 118horsepower engine capable of a cruising speed of 165 mph. Information supplied by Media General News Service.

profession. He is a past president of the Virginia chapters of both APCO and the Virginia Chapter of the National Emergency Number Association (NENA) and remains very active in both organizations. He currently serves on the Virginia APCO Board of Directors and the State Interoperability Radio System Board. He is co-chair of the Region 1 RPAC-I Committee and serves as a gubernatorial appointee to the Virginia 911 Wireless Board. “Mr. Heins has demonstrated extraordi-

strives to ensure that the Hanover County Emergency Communications Department is among the best in the Commonwealth of Virginia and the nation in the areas of training, equipment and personnel.” Heins is a life-long resident of Hanover County and began his public safety career as a volunteer firefighter in 1969. He has 34 years of service as a Hanover County Communications Department employee, the last 27 as director. The Communications Center Leader of the Year Award recognizes the individual responsible for the overall operations of his communications center. The leader is expected to serve as a role model, demonstrate the highest level of commitment to staff and their professional career development and exemplify leadership, integrity and vision, among other attributes. Heins was presented the award during the 2010 Virginia NENA-APCO Spring Conference held on May 20. He said it was a great surprise to him. “I am very humbled in being named as the recipient of this award,” Heins said. “Over the years my motivation has been to learn and grow in my profession to enable our department to be a leader in the service we provide and the technology we use. My goal has always been for our department to provide the best and most consistent service possible to our user agencies and the citizens of the county.”

the Sheriff ’s Office and located in the basement of the Hanover Branch Library. He became director of the Communications Division in 1983 and director of the Emergency Communications Department in 1986. Under his leadership the department has become one of the most decorated in the commonwealth. For example, earlier this year the department was accredited by the International Academies of Emergency Dispatch (IAED) as an Emergency Fire Dispatch Center of Excellence. That made Hanover the 14th Emergency Dispatch Center in the world to be awarded this accreditation. In 2008, the department became the 123rd agency in the world to be accredited as an Emergency Medical Dispatch (EMD) Center of Excellence by the IAED. Last year, construction was completed on a new Emergency Communications Center approved by voters in the 2005 Bond Referendum as part of a new public safety communications system. Later this year, the new Motorola P25 Digital Radio System – state-of-the-art in public safety radio communications – will become operational. Heins has led every aspect of this effort, including helping to select the system and test it so that it meets the county’s needs for years to come. Heins also has been a leader in his

County man accused of fraud Arrest stems from complaints made to Better Business Bureau A Hanover County man was arrested for fraud in Henrico County on Wednesday, June 2. Around 6:30 a.m., special agents with the Virginia State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation, Richmond Field Office, responded to a residence in the 7800 block of Lemonwood Court to serve an arrest warrant for fraud. Upon arriving on scene, the special agents approached the residence and knocked on the door. A short time later, a trooper witnessed the suspect – 28-year-old Matthew W. Taylor — attempting to flee out a back window of the residence. Taylor, who made his home in the 1000 block of Georgetown Road in Hanover, was apprehended and taken into custody without further incident.

Within the past eight months, the Central Virginia Better Business Bureau (BBB) has received more than a dozen complaints against Taylor and his company, The Floor TAYLOR Source. The complaints were that Taylor would request a deposit for his services. Once he obtained the money, he would fail to provide the requested services. Due to the criminal nature of the complaints, the Central Virginia BBB then contacted the State Police to conduct an investigation. Taylor was arrested last Wednesday on one felony count of obtaining $200 or more

with fraudulent intent. Citizens with complaints against businesses are encouraged to contact the Central Virginia Better Business Bureau. To file a complaint with the BBB, consumers can go online to http://www.bbb. org and select the tab to file a complaint. Once submitted, the complaint will be forwarded to the appropriate BBB. Complaints are handled by the BBB located in the same geographic area as the business. To reach the Richmond BBB by phone, consumers should call 804-648-0016 and select the prompt “To speak with an operator.” The criminal investigation continues into Taylor and Floor Source. Information supplied by Sgt. Thomas J. Molnar, Virginia State Police.

OPINION | The Local Views From the editor

Be responsible and educated on the issues Had an interesting conversation last week with Oscar Walker, one of the leaders of the Hanover County Patriots organization. He wasn’t seeking an article, just an opportunity to talk about his concerns about government — specifically, our local government. While he is an advocate of less government involvement, he also is a staunch supporter of his fellow Hanoverians. He is passionate about being a voice for those who may not be able to speak up for themselves. A good portion of our talk centered on being educated on the issues. We shouldn’t accept anything at face value. We have so many options available to us to thoroughly examine and investigate decisions and actions that may impact us. It comes down to making the time and effort to learn. We must be responsible to become educated and, just as important, involved. There are different levels of involvement, but Walker and I agree on one: Going to the polls. It’s almost a chant with me at election time. Be a part of the solution. If you aren’t satisfied with the status quo, then work to make a difference. This isn’t about making a political statement. Rather, it’s kind of a “thinking out loud” scenario (or maybe a subliminal nudge). Three words that carry considerable influence: educated, responsible, involved. It’s entirely up to us.

Parsons’ Cause to be presented On Dec. 1, 1763, a country lawyer from Hanover stepped from obscurity into the forefront of legal and politics circles in Virginia. His name was Patrick Henry.

T

he attempt this week by nine Turkish-flagged cargo ships to run the Israeli blockade off the coast of Gaza has become the focus of international attention and may rapidly become the “incident” which will be used to justify the next war on Israel. If you only listened to the so-called “news reports” spun out by the mainstream media wire services and networks, you would come to the intended conclusion that Israel is the aggressor, bullying and violently confronting the peace-loving “activists” who were only trying to bring humanitarian aid to the poor downtrodden Palestinians in Gaza. But what really happened here? Why is there a blockade of Gaza in the first place? Why did Israel board those ships? And what is the real agenda behind this incident? aza, one of two Palestinian-run territories within Israel itself, is under the control of Hamas, a terrorist organization whose charter calls for the destruction of Israel. From Gaza, over 7,000 katusha rockets have been launched into Israel. (Chew on that for a moment!) Imagine if terrorists within Cuba and under their government’s protection had launched over 7,000 buzz bombs on Florida. Would we not place a blockade around Cuba to prevent missiles and other deadly arms from arriving there? (I seem to remember something like that in the history books.) The Israeli blockade of Gaza has been in effect for three years! Everybody knows that if you are on a ship headed for Gaza, you must stop and be inspected by the Israeli navy for weapons. This was no secret to the IHH-funded ships. IHH, the “Islamic charity” based in Turkey that sponsored this maritime operation, has been branded by the U.S. government as a “front” for terror. This nice-sounding “relief” organization even has a “dove of peace” displayed in their logo, but they are, in fact, channeling contributions to terrorists. Read about them here: http://www.terrorism-info.org.il/malam_multimedia/English/eng_n/ html/hamas_e105.htm. hat happened last week is not the “ugly-Israel” picture being painted by the media – an image which is now being used to lather up hatred of Israel in the UN and around the globe – it was a very calculated provocation by IHH. The “relief” ships would not stop when ordered so they were boarded by Israeli navy seals armed primarily with PAINT BALL GUNS. (You can verify this by watching the video!) As soon as the Israelis boarded the ship they were attacked with iron pipes and knives. Several of the Israelis were seriously beaten and stabbed; one was thrown overboard. Eventually a gun battle ensued in which nine “activists” were killed and three Israeli commandos were seriously wounded. What is not being reported, is that prior to this action both Israel and Egypt offered to take the cargo from these ships directly to Gaza. If the sole intention of the IHH was humanitarian relief it certainly would have accepted these offers – if not from the hand of the hated Jew at least from an Islamic brother! o what is really behind this and why is it happening now? In the fall of 2007 I wrote three columns about the rise of Islamic radicals to power in Turkey through the election of AKP party candidates to the offices of President and Prime Minster and an AKP majority to parliament. Turkey, once considered a “moderate” Islamic nation, a NATO ally and a nation whose secular government was aligned more closely with Europe and the West, has undergone a dramatic transformation which is now almost complete. Turkey has abandoned a century of secular democratic rule to become in practice an Islamic state, even though its constitution still says otherwise – America take note! Turkey has moved away from the West and become aligned with Iran and Syria, two of its radical Islamic neighbors. This blockade running operation, while not done with Turkish navy ships, was done with at the very least, tacit approval by the Turkish government. And what about the timing? I believe this provocation has been planned for a long time, but they were waiting for one big thing ... Iranian nuclear capability! We have allowed Iran to get the bomb and now we will have to pay the piper. Or should I say, Israel will. his is not going to quietly go away. In fact, at this writing, IHH has two other ships waiting to try it again, only this time the whole world will be watching. Time will tell if this is the next big thing on the prophetic horizon. But one thing is sure, the clock is ticking … and midnight is very close.

The case proved to be one of the opening salvos of the revolution, and started Henry on the path of becoming the “voice of the revolution.” The Parsons’ Cause Foundation Inc. is a Virginia non-profit corporation, formed in 2004, for the express purpose of promoting the historical importance of The Parsons’ Cause, primarily through reenactments of the famous trial. The Foundation is pleased to present five free re-enactments this summer. The re-enactments will take place in the old Hanover Courthouse on Route 301, the same building in which Henry tried the original case in 1763. The performances will begin at 11 a.m. on the following Saturdays: June 19, July 3, July 17, July 31 and Aug. 14. The show is 45 minutes in length, and attendees are asked to participate by serving as jurors, parties to the case, gentlemen justices, or parsons. Costumed actors will assume the major roles in the production. In addition, door prizes will be awarded to some lucky attendees. The Foundation invites you, your family and friends to attend one of the performances. We hope you will join us and step back in time to 1763. John T. Tucker III President The Parsons’ Cause Foundation Mechanicsville

Where are tax dollars going? I heard the call last Monday morning on NBC 12 news from VDOT looking for highway grass control agents. I would like to respond with a big “I WILL.” I have waited for a opportunity like this a long time, and

to make sure I get the position I will make VDOT the following offer. I will cut the 69 miles of Interstate 64 from 295 to the Hampton Roads Tunnel. I will take care of the fuel and other expenses such as equipment, flaggers, trash pickup, etc. Now the good part for VDOT. I will do all this without a paycheck. Yep, no paycheck. The only things I want are the benefits that VDOT and all other government workers get such as health and life insurance, retirement plan, vacation days, snow days, paid holidays and a 10-day a month work schedule. I figure just these little perks will be worth $40,000 to $60,000 a year and a 10-day a month work schedule will allow me the time to get one of the counties school traffic guard positions picking up another $30,000 or so. With this kind of opportunity available I can’t believe I got involved in owning a business. This is like winning the lottery — hold on a minute — can you believe this? My wife just told me that this is not the deal VDOT is offering. They expect me to do the whole thing, labor, fuel, equipment, all for nothing — no benefits, no vacations, no holidays , no nothin’. Well, my offer is now off the table. I don’t mind working for free, but not after I have paid the money through fuel and other taxes to have it done. If I do it, what happens to the tax money we are now paying for these services? Will it go for bonuses and pay raises or will the price of fuel go down? Has this offer has been posted in all government office buildings for volunteers? Probably not — since a volunteer from there would get $85,000 salary and all the benefits. I say there are enough people in government, on the taxpayers’ payroll to get this done without calling on the taxpayer. How about taking a few holidays back and use those days

for mowing? You get enough money from us to take care of these projects, but if you waste it on your own self-serving interests there won’t be any left for the projects. A couple suggestions would be: Put a mower and weed eater on all state trucks to be used by the six or so extra personnel usually seen lounging around on highway projects while one person is working and fit all state take home vehicles with mower blades underneath so the person can drive the shoulder and cut grass while driving back and forth. Actually, I have always figured it would be cheaper for VDOT to pay the adjacent highway land owner to cut the grass instead of farming it out to a middle man who in turns farms it out to a middle man who farms it out to a —-. I will, however, volunteer to sharpen their string type weed eaters for free. Ted Mentz Old Church

Government at fault with spill I’m convinced that BP is doing everything they can to stop the oil leak, but the problem is no oil company has ever been prepared to deal with problems that could occur at these monumental ocean depths. The water pressure at over a mile deep is astronomical and opens a “whole new can of worms.” This oil leak is a MILE DEEP and cannot be fixed by scuba divers! Although President Obama says that he has taken responsibility, it’s too little, too late. The EPA has required all off-shore oil drilling to be far enough away (many miles away) as to not endanger wetlands or wildlife. This event makes the EPA statement one of those “oxymorons.” Oceans are very, very deep

many miles from shore. That sounds like a reasonable deduction for anyone, doesn’t it? The EPA, therefore, in lieu of its requirements, has created a catastrophe that was just waiting to happen — and IT DID! BP has become the scapegoat for the government’s stupid mistakes in this regard. To make matters worse, the President has denied a pleading request from Gov. Jindal over two weeks ago to allow the building of sand dunes to help keep the oil away from the shoreline. In the meantime, the oil keeps gushing out! The President said his request would have to be reviewed by “committee” before he would approve the request. Furthermore, the President has also “suspended” ALL offshore drilling — most of which is done in relatively shallow water, which has always been safe. This bone-headed action will needlessly kill hundreds of thousands more jobs. I am reminded of an adage created by a former pastor of mine which said, “God so loved the world that He didn’t send a Committee.” AMEN! November can’t come soon enough! Gary Allen Mechanicsville

Not manners, it’s the law With the influx of all the new housing and businesses in Mechanicsville and King William County, the traffic on Pole Green Road has caused quite an issue at the Pole Green/295 interchange. The alternate merge near Bell Creek has nothing to do with manners or the lack thereof. The additional lanes were put in place to safely move the flow of traffic away from the interchange at rush hour in the see LETTERS, pg. 13 `

afternoons. With two exit ramps off of 295 and two entrance ramps to 295, it causes a lot of congestion right at the ramps. If everyone stays in the right hand lane, no one can enter or exit 295. There have been times, before the extra lanes were added, that people couldn’t even get on the exit ramp and were stopped on 295 with traffic buzzing by at 65 miles per hour. NOT SAFE! VDOT and millions of our tax dollars have made these extra lanes possible to remedy the safety problem and ease the flow of traffic. On many occasions, VDOT has put up the lighted sign stating “USE BOTH LANES.” Recently, Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office deputies have had to sit on the median to make sure people follow the alternate

merge as it was intended. If all traffic would use both lanes, then everyone would reach the merge in the order that they approached the area in the first place. Not rocket science! Then you have those citizens who somehow think that they have been put in charge of traffic control. They block the left lane by straddling the line between the two lanes, to prevent other motorist from using the left lane. Just last week, I witnessed a large white truck pull into the left lane right past AMF Drive and he blocked the traffic all the way to the merge. Sorry to dissappoint you “would-be” officers of the law, but this is illegal. It is called “Impeeding the Flow of Traffic” and, yes, if you get caught doing this .you will be ticketed. Citizens can call the Hanover Sheriff ’s Office and report this activity and an officer will respond. Maybe

when enough folks get tickets, this craziness will stop. It is beyond me why we cannot start following the law, use both lanes, respect the alternate merge and start acting like lawabiding citizens instead of kindergartners. Sandi Perry Mechanicsville

toward a clean energy economy. We have come to believe as a country that such a transition will create momentous and uncontrollable shocks to our economy and our standard of living. But who is perpetuating this line of thought? Who, exactly, is claiming that moving away from fossil fuels is a “leap” that is too traumatic for our country to make at present and in a timely manner? Big oil has no doubt perpetuated many of these “facts” — though they are far from the only interested parties — because it is to their advantage. However, the extraction and importation of oil has become far too dangerous and, if anything, threatens our standard of living far more than a transition to clean energy conceivably would. Thus, it is time to invert the logic of oil production in this country. We are not safer and our standard of living is not more protected vis-à-vis oil. It is, in fact, quite the opposite. We can make the difference in our country’s future by making the transition to clean energy, but that transition must be now. Daniel Carawan Richmond

said the ceremony is becoming a tradition in Hanover. “It’s really great to see all these people to come out here today and support their veterans,� Burnett said following the ceremony. McGuire ,wife Ann and their children joined former Del. Frank Hargrove to lay a memorial wreath at the base of the Hanover Memorial. Hargrove also was honored for his long-standing work in support of veterans and his service to the county. George Condyles of the Hanover Veterans Memorial Committee presented Hargrove with a commemorative photo of the Hanover Veterans Memorial. “Thank you for the award, and I’m glad to be able to receive it — and that I’m not a member on the wall,� Hargrove said, referring to the list of deceased servicemen listed on the memorial. “Thank you for including me,� the 83-year old added. The crowd was a cross-section of Hanover citizens, from veterans who served, active duty service men and women and every day citizens. Del. John Cox, R-55, said the event is a worthy recognition of Hanover veterans as he met and greeted attendees. He’s attended the event every year since its inception. “We should honor the men and women who gallantly served our country and paid the ultimate sacrifice,� Cox said. “I see the crowd continuing to grow each year, and that warms the bottom of my heart because the men and women who serve our country certainly deserve that.� Hanover Idol winner Aimee Mines-Derricott performed the National Anthem. The Rev. Craig Secor gave the opening invocation. Hanover County and the Hanover Veterans Memorial Committee sponsor the event.

The Ville Players adjust season Due to some zoning issues in Hanover County, The Ville Players has adjusted its season for the year. According to artistic director Pamela S.

Relay: remembering and celebrating By Jim Ridolphi For The Mechanicsville Local Cancer has touched and affected the lives of millions of Americans, and each year the American Cancer Society sponsors local Relay for Life events to commemorate the disease’s victims, recognize its survivors, and renew efforts to fight the killer. Last weekend, it was Mechanicsville’s turn to raise money for research and patient services like rides to the doctor and wigs at no cost to cancer victims. The annual event held at Lee-Davis High School drew large crowds, despite almost record temperatures and a few thunderstorms that interrupted some of the activities. But the weather couldn’t dampen the enthusiasm of hundreds of participants who camped out in small groups, grilling hamburgers, raising money, and walking laps around the memorial track. The Mechanicsville event featured nearly 40 teams, formed with one goal in mind: To raise awareness and funds to fight cancer. Some groups sold jewelry while others sponsored raffles, backyard barbeques and bake sales. Most have personal connections to the dreaded disease, and many participate to honor the memory of a lost loved one or

surviving family members. The first lap of the event, which features continuous walking around the track at Lee-Davis High, is reserved for survivors who are joined by caregivers on the second go-round. More than 350 participants signed up for this year’s event, and organizers are hoping the good turnout will assist in reaching the group’s $135,000 goal.

Luminaries lined the track in honor of those who lost the battle, and the word hope was carved out in candlelight in the LDHS bleachers. As the evening progressed, that word changed to “CURE.” “We have over 550 registrants and that’s not counting the survivors. We just had a great survivor lap followed by a caregivers lap,” Suzanne “Tatur” Feigley, chair of see RELAY, pg. 22 `


75 graduate from Hanover Fire/EMs Paramedic School Seventy-five future emergency medical service providers were recognized as Hanover Fire/EMS held its second Paramedic Class graduation on May 21 at Randolph-Macon College. Men and women from all over the area were honored for completing a five-semester course, which qualifies them for take the National Registry exam, the final step in becoming a paramedic. The accreditation course is offered through J. Sergeant Reynolds Community College. Training is coordinated by Hanover Fire/EMS and held at

day a week in a clinical setting. And that’s just to satisfy the minimum requirements. That doesn’t take into consideration all the study time and the research papers (four in all).” Twenty-eight of the graduates are assigned to Hanover County Fire/EMS stations or work for the county. They include: Ryan Abernathy, Scott Adams, Raymond Alexander, D. Cameron Bendall Jr., Andrea L. Beaulieu, Shannon Daniel, Rachel Dillon, Justin Finan, Jeffrey Hamm, Michael G. Harman Jr., David Johnston, Doug Jones, Emma Karnes,

the Harman-Taylor Hanover Fire/EMS Training Center, which is a satellite center of JSRCC. The 2010 graduating class began its labors two years ago and each graduate spent about 1,000 hours in class and another 400 hours interning at various units in several local hospitals, including Bon Secours Memorial Regional Medical Center. “This is a fulltime two-year commitment,” Lt. Michael F. Biamonte, lead instructor, said. “Not only are they attending classes one to two days a week, they are spending at least one

Cheyenne Townsend, Emily Turner, M. Kristen Wagner and Anne M. Williams. Jason Martin was the class valedictorian with a grade point average of 97.5 and Kristopher Pawlick was named the Best Overall Student. Graduates still have to pass the National Registry exam in order to become cer-

tified as a paramedic in the Commonwealth of Virginia and most other states. “A number of these graduates are straight volunteers,” Biamonte said. “They have my admiration because they’ve gone through two years of an enormous amount of work just to put them into a position where they have the opportunity to serve our community. I expect most of them to go on and do very well,” he added. The guest speaker at the May 21 recognition ceremony

was Dr. Michael C. Kurz, M.D., MS-HES and assistant professor, Department of Emergency Medicine, at Virginia Commonwealth University. Dr. Kurz also is the operational medical director for Henrico County. The next paramedic class starts in August. Registration for the class is through J. Sergeant Reynolds.

3 receive Hanover Arc honors

Hanover Arc Inc. announces the winners of the Special Aide Award and the Raby Recognition Reward Awards (3 Rs Award). The Special Aide Award recognizes an outstanding instructional aide of students with intellectual disability (ID) working in Hanover County Public Schools. The Raby Recognition Reward awards are in two categories: the Student Award is given to an outstanding student with ID and the Teacher Award honors an extraordinary teacher of students with ID in Hanover County Public Schools. The Raby Awards were established in honor of Martha Raby’s work for children in Hanover County Public Schools. All three of the awards were established by Anne, Charlotte and the late Garnett Nelson of Montpelier. A cash award is given to each winner and they were recognized at the June 8 meeting of the Hanover County School Board. A plaque in the School Board building also honors winners. Special Aide Award “As we approach the end of the school year it is amazing to see all of the progress a student who had trouble getting in the door at the beginning of the year; it was only possible because of Rhea Buchan and her dedication to students,” teacher

Carla Darby said Ready to take on a challenge, Buchan, an instructional aide at Cool Spring Elementary School, worked persistently with patience and ambition so that now this student is successfully included in the life of the school, having shown outstanding progress. Working in a selfcontained classroom, Buchan does not let the walls limit her outreach. When other students need help or teachers need assistance, she is ready to assist. Darby describes Buchan as “an absolute blessing to the classroom, who has a positive outlook and willingness to help students throughout the school succeed each and everyday unlike anyone else I have ever seen.” Buchan is the 2010 winner of the Special Aide Award. Raby Recognition Reward Award for Students Even though he was starting in a new school this year, 9-year-old Jacob Kenney “put his head to the grindstone” and has made “monumental improvement” writes Kendra Mann, his teacher and nominator. At Rural Point Elementary School, Jacob has mastered skills in numerous academic and social areas, all the while being helpful to his peers, organized, humorous and hard working. His accomplishments include working independently, making new friends, typing rapidly, computer literacy and telling time. Perhaps his greatest aca-

demic achievement is in reading. Mastering the alphabet this year, he is reading on a pre-primer level now. He reads short books to his classmates and at home to his family. He voices pride that he can now read “real books” like everyone else. Jacob is a worthy recipient of the Outstanding Student Award. Raby Recognition Reward Award for Teachers “Mr. Domenico Bonaccorsy displayed dedication, determination and diligence that led to a student overcoming obstacles so that she could be a part of the Theatre Arts Oak Knoll Middle School.” according to parent nominator Lori Levy. Bonaccorsy saw that Levy’s daughter could benefit immensely from being included successfully into the spring play. To ensure success, he dedicated three to four afternoons weekly after school for months so that she learned dance moves and the complexities of unstructured socialization with peers. As a result, this student’s face lit up at the production. Other students with disabilities and their families were inspired to try new extracurricular activities before considered impossible. Benaccorsy also is recognized for significantly involving parents in the educational process as well as advocating and assisting students and families to obtain community resources.

Del. John Cox of Hanover County’s 55th District was invited to speak to the middle school students at the Hanover Academy in Ashland on Monday, May 31. He talked to them about state government and explained how legislation is introduced and becomes law in Virginia. Students asked several questions about the duties and responsibilities of serving in the Virginia House of Delegates, including the requirements of serving as a member of the Virginia General Assembly. “Engaging with our youth about civic responsibility is vitally important to motivating their interest in government and for becoming active citizens in this great country. Understanding the expectations and responsibility of citizenship is crucial for our young people that stand to inherit this great nation. The youth of today are tomorrow’s leaders and it is a personal privilege for me to be able to share this message with them”.

Covenant Woods awarded accreditation by CARF-CCAC Covenant Woods has been awarded a five-year term of accreditation by the Commission of Rehabilitation Facilities for Continuing Care Accreditation Commission (CARF-CCAC). This latest accreditation is the sixth consecutive year that CARF–CCAC accreditation has been awarded to Covenant Woods. To be eligible for the accreditation, Covenant Woods submitted itself to a rigorous peer review process and demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site survey that it is committed to CARF–CCAC’s accreditation conditions and standards. The on-site survey included discussion sessions with Board of Directors, residents, families, staff and vendors. Covenant Woods administrator Carrie Davis, LNHA, said, “The accreditation process allows us to acknowledge how much we have accomplished, while giving us a platform to focus on new goals. It is a wonderful opportunity to see how we compare nationally. We have always felt that Covenant Woods is a great community and when we learned we scored in the 95 percentile it affirmed this.” The CCAC was founded in

1985 as the nation’s only accrediting body for continuing care retirement communities and similar organizations. In January 2003, CCAC merged with the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), a nonprofit accreditor founded in 1966 that touches close to 6 million individuals served in a wide range of human service organizations. For more information about the accreditation process, visit the CARF website at www.carf. org, the CARF–CCAC website at www.carf.org/aging, or the CARF Canada website at www. carfcanada.ca. Covenant Woods is a not for profit, CCAC accredited, continuing care retirement community lead by a volunteer Board of Directors. Located on 75 acres, Covenant Woods includes independent living apartments and cottages, as well as Manor East, which houses assisted living, memory support and nursing facilities. You may visit Covenant Woods at 7090 Covenant Woods Drive, Mechanicsville or www.covenantwoods.com. For more information, contact Elizabeth Pace at 569-8007.

while we are here, but we also are taking our first step in fighting back against this terrible disease.” She said the statistics are daunting. One in two men will have cancer and one in three women will get the disease. “That directly affects almost every one; this event also educates and keeps this issue at the forefront,” Feigley said. She said she believes the small steps taken at these events will eventually lead to a cure. “We’ve made a lot of great strides fighting all the cancers. Sixty percent of the money we raise stays in the southern Atlantic region,” she said. She said the event evokes a sense of determination and pride in the participants. “For us to do this every single year, we get to be proud of the people who have won the battle and support the people who are currently fighting it,” Feigley said.

Sandra has leukemia,” Dawn Bahen said. The group sold frozen drinks during the evening to cool the crowd and raise money. “We’re not as big as some of the fundraising groups, but we do what we can and have fun doing it,” survivor Michael Taylor said. He began participating in Relay two years before he was diagnosed. Taylor said the programs funded by Relay were instrumental in his recovery from cancer a decade ago. “It gave me an understand-

ing of what I was facing,” he said. Brianne Hunt, captain of Hunt’s Heroes, celebrated her birthday by volunteering at the event. She sat beside the track awarding beads for each lap volunteers completed. “I lost my mother to cancer nine years ago, so I thought this was a great way to celebrate a birthday and my mother’s life,” she said. Feigley said the large turnout on a scorching day says a lot about the community. “It means we are not taking no for an answer in fighting this disease.” Co-chairs Faith Van Goor and Jamie Kourtge said there were 38 teams participating in this year’s event. “We plan on raising a lot of money here tonight, and we’ll continue raising money until August,” Van Goor said. “Someone you know has been touched by cancer and we need to stop it.” Donations toward that goal will be accepted all summer. For information on how to give or volunteer, contact Andrea Fravel with the American Cancer Society at 527-3712.

Womack named NSHSS Scholar Turfona Ebony Evelyn Womack, a Lee-Davis High School student and Mechanicsville resident, has been selected for membership in the National Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS) by James W. Lewis, president of NSHSS. The Society recognizes top scholars and invites only those students who have achieved superior academic excellence. Turfona was diagnosed with a rare condition called Guillain Barre Syndrome, which caused paralysis in her entire body while in the second grade at Battlefield Park Elementary School. It took her about three years to recover from the paralysis. She faced many challenges, however, she continued to stay on the honor roll and have perfect attendance when returning to elementary school from her

long hospitalization. Although she missed many school days, she was determined to remain an honor roll student. She spent hours studying trying to maintain honor rolls in middle and high school. With the support of her family and church, the Meadowbridge Seventh Day

Adventist on Pole Green Road in Mechanicsville, Turfona regained all of her physical strength — after doctors said she would never walk or lift her arms independently again. She plans to enter college as a pre-med student at Randolph-Macon College on an academic scholarship with recommendation from Dr. Nora Green, professor of chemistry. Turfona plays the piano and has been a member of clubs such as DECA, Health Occupations Student Association (HOSA), Pride, Pathfinders, Spanish Club and L-DHS track team. She volunteers at the Scottish Rite Childhood Development Center. Turfona is the daughter of Reginald and Melody Joyner and the granddaughter of Sylvester and Evelyn Graves.

It was there and then that an obscure country lawyer named Patrick Henry challenged the authority of the Church of England and the King of England. In The Parsons’ Cause, as Henry’s

case became known, Henry thundered against the King’s disavowal of a law passed by the Virginia House of Burgesses. In addition to thrusting Henry into the forefront of Colonial legal and political circles, The Parsons’ Cause established part of the foundation for the coming American

Peace joins LEAD VIRGINIA Board LEAD VIRGINIA, the statewide leadership program now entering its fifth year of educating Virginia’s leaders about the issues most relevant to the Commonwealth, has appointed eight new members – including Del. Christopher K. Peace — to its Board of Directors. Each member will serve a three year term. In his third term with the Virginia House of Delegates from the 97th District, Peace serves on the prominent Courts of Justice, Health Welfare and Institutions, Science and Technology, and Finance Committees. His wide range of legislative knowledge is expected to help the board with the broad issues facing in the Commonwealth today. He also is an adjunct professor of legal studies at Virginia Commonwealth University’s Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs.

“Our eight new board members bring a remarkable amount of experience across the Commonwealth that will help our organization grow and flourish,” Susan Horne, president and CEO of LEAD VIRGINIA, said. “These leaders will help the board improve the LEAD VIRGINIA program and carry out its mission to connect diverse leaders across industries to promote positive change in Virginia.” Dr. Patricia Cormier, Longwood University president, will continue to serve as board chair through 2010. LEAD VIRGINIA brings together experienced, established senior-level executives from public and private entities across the state to learn about important local and regional issues and opportunities. It educates participants about regional differences and statewide needs through the shared

experience of seven, two-day sessions held throughout the Commonwealth. Endorsed by the Virginia Chamber of Commerce, state universities and regional leadership organizations, LEAD VIRGINIA offers leaders a forum for gaining deeper insights into complex statewide issues, exchanging resources, creating momentum and working within and outside the political arena to usher in positive change for the Commonwealth. Specific curriculum themes of local/regional economies, as well as the larger issues of health and education, are explored through in-depth dialogue, on-site field studies and experiential activities designed to highlight the diverse interests of each region. About LEAD VIRGINIA LEAD VIRGINIA was incorporated as a charitable and educational organization in

March 2005 and is patterned after similar models of statewide leadership programs across the nation. Led by a board of directors composed of business, education, government, nonprofit and community leaders from across Virginia, LEAD VIRGINIA uses a proven model for developing a statewide network of leaders by engaging academic, business, civic and government advisors to educate class members on the wide range of key issues in Virginia. 2010 sustaining sponsors of the program include Bon Secours Richmond Health System, HCA Virginia, Norfolk Southern and Philip Morris USA. Additional sponsors include The Harvest Foundation, Dominion, the Claude Moore Charitable Foundation, American Office and Mary Morton Parsons Foundation.

4-H Junior Camp will rock out With a theme of 4-H: It Will Rock Your World in 2010, Junior Camp is ready to rock ‘n’ roll and enroll 50 Hanover County youth ages nine to 12 years of age. During the July 19-23 camp, youth can kayak, canoe, fish, swim, and try their hands at rocketry. Puppetry, archery, riflery, outdoor cook-

ing, woodworking, sewing, electronics and crafts also are on the agenda. Throw in some foot stomping, lung bursting, high power campfires, and Junior Camp is ready to rock. The $230 fee includes meals, classes, a cool t-shirt and transportation from Hanover.

As Hanover camps with Powhatan and Goochland counties, campers make friends far and wide. Plus there are 24 talented and skilled teens to serve as counselors along with adult volunteers and staff. For a brochure and more information, call the Hanover Extension office at 7522410.

RivahFest ready for Duck Race What’s bright yellow, three inches tall and could be worth $1,000? Your adopted duck in the RivahFest’s 2nd annual Rubber Duck Race in Tappahannock on Saturday, June 19. “The Rubber Duck Race was such at hit last year, there was no question that it would be back,” David Broad, Steering Committee member, said. “What could be more fun than a rubber duck in the bathtub? Well, how about 3,000 rubber duckies in the Rappahannock River and your ducky number is the leader of the pack!” In addition to the $1,000 cash grand prize, Broad said a prize of $500 will be awarded for second place and $250 for third place. Other prizes will be given for fourth and subsequent places depending on gifts received from sponsors. At 3 p.m. on the day of RivahFest, visitors will waddle down to the riverbank on St. Margaret’s campus, between Brockenbrough House and St.

Margaret’s Hall. That’s considered to be the perfect vantage point to watch the numbered ducks race — or meander, depending on the current — down to the finish line. There will be a running commentary by the appropriatelyattired Duckmaster to make the race even more exciting. Several boats manned by duck racing experts will be waiting there to snatch up the top few quackers, and the numbers will be matched to the list of lucky adoptive families to award the prizes. This year’s race is sponsored by Garrett’s Marina & Harborside Storage, the Twin Rivers Scratch & Strutters Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation, and Esquire Services. Proceeds from the race will benefit the Essex County Little League (ECLL) and RivahFest community grants. “This is the only fundraiser that the Little League will hold

Three thousand rubber ducks will race to the finish line for a top prize of $1,000 at the 2nd Annual RivahFest Rubber Duck Race on June 19.

this year, so we’re excited that it’s something the community can really engage in,” ECLL board member Rob Pierce said. “The community is always so supportive coming out to watch the kids play, and this time it will be fun for the kids to come out and root for their supporters to take home the win.” Pierce added that ECLL players will be volunteering during the race and doing the post-race duck cleanup. One duck may be adopted for $3, and discounts are available for larger packs. The Quack Pack (two ducks) is $5 and the Waddle pack (five

ducks) is $10. Tickets are available at Esquire Services at 1022 Elm Street in Tappahannock, or may be purchased from any ECLL player. You also can buy tickets online at www.rivahfest. com/rubberduck using credit card or PayPal. Proceeds from tickets bought from a Little League player will automatically go the ECLL, and online ticket buyers may choose which project they wish to support. Lists will be posted at the Little League field and online so that everyone who adopts a duck can cheer on their little yellow buddy from the riverbank.

Bark for Life of Hanover needs volunteers The American Cancer Society will be planning to hold a Bark for Life fundraising event for the Hanover canine community. Bark for Life is an American Cancer Society Relay fundraising event that honors

the care giving qualities and life long contributions of our canine “Best Friends.” It presents an opportunity for people to be empowered through their canine companion partnerships and to contribute

to cancer cures through the mission of the ACS. If you are a dog lover and want to help eliminate cancer, contact Andrea Fravel at 8527-3712 or andrea.fravel@cancer.org.

Saturday, June 19 “Calling All Vendors!” Could your product or service use a boost from more visibility? You don’t get much more visible than RivahFest, Tappahannock and Essex County’s biggest day of the year. This year’s event is just around the corner. More than 100 artisans, crafters, flower and vegetable growers, food sellers, small businesses and community organizations displayed their products and services last year to a crowd estimated at more than 12,000. This year’s festival expects to attract an equally large crowd and organizers hope to present an even greater number and variety of shopping and dining choices. Vendors are asked to choose a category for their business when they complete a vendor agreement, which is available at www.rivahfest.com or by calling the RivahFest hotline at 1-888-973-4443. Limited space is available; act now to reserve your spot! RivahFest keeps vendor registration fees comparable to those of other local festivals. The event is funded primarily by sponsorships, program advertising and the sale of RivahFest logo items, with any profits put toward the following year’s costs. Organizers incur a number of expenses to mount the free event for the community, including safety/ security, sanitation, insurance, and musical entertainment. RivahFest is a celebration that affects all of the senses; but the sense of taste might just be the best of all! From distinctive local cuisine to

traditional festival favorites, a sampling of the area’s most succulent fare will be served up at RivahFest 2010 in downtown Tappahannock. The Taste of Tappahannock food area has a variety of vendors serving food and beverages from 10-7 p.m. That means you can start snacking at RivahFest after breakfast, and continue munching right through to your evening meal while listening to the finest in entertainment on the main stage. There truly is a little something to tempt every palate. All those childhood memories of good food and good times will come alive at RivahFest 2010.

Patrick Henry’s Powell continues to amaze Senior pole vaulter breaks her own record in state win By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Since battling her way back from cancer last summer, Patrick Henry senior Lizzie Powell has been nothing short of amazing. As has been well-documented in the local media, following Powell’s record-setting performance in last year’s VHSL outdoor championships, she was diagnosed with Hodgkins’ lymphoma. The date was June 3, 2009; her 17th birthday. Powell underwent chemotherapy, radiation and recuperation throughout the fall, returning to compete in gymnastics by mid-December. By March of 2010, Powell was amazingly back on her record-breaking pace, setting a new state indoor mark with a personal best vault of 12-7. This past weekend, Powell was searching to not only break the outdoor mark she set last season, but possibly go a foot beyond.; A goal that would seem impossible for someone diagnosed with cancer less than a year earlier. That is if it was anyone but Powell. Passing the 11—06.00 mark, Powell left every other competitor in her wake. She had repeated as a state champion but she wanted much more. Her former

38

record mark was 12-00.00 but Powell was hoping to clear 1306.00; a height that would have netted her a sixth place finish in the boys’ state competition and .25 inches higher than the record mark at Virginia Tech, where she will attend school in the fall. It seemed that everyone at Sports Backers Stadium was aware of Powell’s history and all eyes turned to the vault area as Powell raced for a record 12-06.00. Cheers erupted as Powell easily cleared the mark, but she took no time to celebrate, quickly dropping back into her pre-vault routine. Attempting to push the mark to a round 13-00.00, Powell’s ankles grazed the bar on her first try. On her second attempt she did not get enough height. On her third and final attempt it was Powell’s hips that brushed the bar just enough to knock it loose. How bad did Powell want 13-00.00? “Really bad,” she said but in typical Powell fashion she bounced back from the missed mark with a smile. “I set my goal for 13-6 and I’m a little disappointed I didn’t reach my own goal, but I broke my state record I set last year at 12-6 so I’m happy. I can’t complain.” And it would seem of anyone, Powell had right to complain having faced and overcome the ultimate battle at age

The Mechanicsville Local

June 9, 2010

17. Because of her amazing return to record-breaking form, Powell largely become known not as the girl who broke state records, but he girl who beat cancer then broke state records. However, she does not mind that her life and accomplishments have now been defined by the disease she overcame. “It doesn’t bother me at all,” she said. “It’s always going to be a part of me so I don’t mind.” Her history of cancer is now so far in her past that sometimes that particular battle slips from her mind. “Sometime I even forget I had it,” she said. “It doesn’t really get old. It put in perspective how I can achieve things and set goals for myself. And with that challenge in my life you can overcome everything. That’s what I try to get people. You put your mind to something and you can overcome anything. “It’s amazing. I’m just at a loss for words,” Powell said. “I never thought I’d be here again. It’s just great to be back.” And to the world of athletics, it is also great that Powell is back. Other top local All-State performers: GIRLS: Atlee junior Cameron Overstreet tied for second in the girls’ pole vault, clearing 11-06.00. Patrick Henry senior Sydney Hobart took fifth at 1100.00. see POWELL, pg. 38 `

One little slip dooms Patriots

Congratulations to

Patrick Henry falls short of state bid

Mike Gershowitz

By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Coming into the Central Region softball semifinals at Prince George, Patrick Henry needed one more win to continue their improbable post-season run and move on to the state tournament. However, the Patriots knew they were facing a formable opponent in the homestanding and defending region champion Royals. Add to that inclement weather as well as a mid-game venue change and the odds continued to climb. The game was a matchup of All-Region second team hurlers; Prince George senior Lauren Vinson and Patrick Henry sophomore Emma Mitchell. The contest lived up to the billing, turning into a pitching duel with a combined total of five hits between the two teams. But in one of the most highly contested games of the Central Region

tournament, the ball bounced in the Royals favor and they escaped with a 1-0 win. Though disappointed by the loss, Patrick Henry head coach Matt Crowder said his team has nothing to hang their heads about. “We were aggressive at the plate,” he said. “You’ve got to give credit to them and their pitcher. Lauren threw a good game. I don’t think we have anything to be ashamed of here. It was just a hard fought game and unfortunately we came out on the wrong end of it.” The season ended for Patrick Henry but it was a year where there were few expectations for a playoff run at its beginning. Though he knew he had talent on his squad, even Crowder was caught off guard by how far the Patriots went. “You want to say that you always have the aspirations of going on and playing further and playing further but I think these guys kind of surprised me a little bit, especially Emma,” he said. “Emma just did a great job all year keeping hitters off balance and not

giving up a lot of runs and just keeping us in ball games and giving us a shot to win. You can’t ask a lot more from any kid and she’s done a great job and she’ll get better I hope which will only make us better.” Against the Royals, Mitchell recorded six strikeouts while giving up two hits. Vinson finished the game with nine strikeouts and two walks but gave up three hits to the Patriots. Therefore, there was relatively little downside for Patriots in the loss. Next season Patrick Henry loses only one player, senior Chris Brim; returning their entire rotation. “It’s a good problem to have,” Crowder said. “I just told them that I hope they do some work and work on getting better. We’ve got a few holes we can work on to make each one of them better. It’s going to be up to them to work on the little things.” Both defenses played exceptionally well with only Patrick Henry’s Madison Gilmann reaching base in the first inning. see PATRIOTS, pg. 41 `

Confederates strike out against Royals Lee-Davis looks to rebound in state tournament By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com When the Lee-Davis softball team traveled to Prince George for the Central Region championship game last Friday, they knew they were returning to the site of their only loss of the season. The second trip to the Royals (22-2) field brought no better result as the Confederates (232) fell 2-0 to the region defending champion. The Confederates were designated the home team but could not take advantage of that edge when they got off to a flat start. Prince George took immediate advantage of the lapse loading bases before the first out was recorded. Central Region Pitcher of the year, Kelly Heinz was not on top of her game in the top of the first, walking Royals’ leadoff hitter Taylor Worley then getting burned by a soft lob over her head from Jami Davis. Heinz then walked opposing pitcher Lauren Vinson, loading the bases and bringing a very early visit to the mound by Cfed coach Jackie Davis. Heinz bounced back to strike out the next two Prince George batters but a single over first by Maggie Roberts allowed Worley to score for a 1-0 lead. But with the ball still in play the Royals’ aggressiveness backfired. Davis turned third with the intention of adding to the score but found the ball coming in to the Lee-Davis catcher Haleigh Cottrell. The Prince George runner then turned back to third but found Vinson already closing on the bag, which left no choice but to head home. Cottrell made the tag at

the plate allowing the C-feds to escape the top of the first with no more damage. “It was evident we came out flat to begin with and they came out ready to play,” said LeeDavis first baseman Meredith Holmes. “They were hyped. They were ready to go and they knew it was a big game. They scored from the get-go and we lost it there. That was when it really ended. “Some innings we’re getting a couple of runners on but we needed to play a full seven innings and I don’t feel like we did that tonight,” Holmes added. Neither pitcher allowed a runner on base until the bottom of the second when it appeared Lee-Davis may tie the game. With two out, L-D’s Casey Price reached on a bad toss to Davis at first. Next up, Heinz lofted a shot into short right for a single allowing Price to reach third. But the charge was stopped when Vinson got Rachel Houff to ground out to first. Holding a 1-0 edge, the Royals added an insurance run in the top of the fourth when Sydney Landreth led off with a triple-shot to left that fell inside the line and just out of the reach of a diving Price. Landreth then came home when Roberts ground out to first. “Had they not been able to score that run, it might have been a difference too, now looking at being down 2-0 as opposed to being down 1-0,” Davis said. Prince George threatened to add to their lead in the top of the sixth when Vinson led off with a single up the middle. A double to the right field fence by Landreth put two Royal runners in scoring position with no outs. But Heinz struck out Christopher then pulled in a Roberts pop-up bunt and made

the throw to third to complete a double-play. However, the Lee-Davis bats continued to be neutralized through the remainder of the game and Prince George took the win. Time and again, the rising fastball proved to be Lee-Davis’ undoing as batter after batter chased the high pitches from Vinson. “I don’t know what it is when we get around her,” Holmes said. “We get nervous and we don’t know how to lay off that rise ball. It’s something we’ve got to work on. We worked on it all season but it seems like whenever it comes back to her it just goes out of the head.” According to Coach Davis, Vinson’s talent kept her batters off-balance. “She mixes it up so much and she hits her spots very well,” Davis said. “She locates the ball nicely. She keeps you off balance. You never know what’s coming at you. I told them tonight, ‘you guys have got to go up there and nine times out of ten the first pitch is going to be a strike and that’s the one that you want because

Hanover falls in extra innings to Patriots Hawks’ season ends in region quarters By Jim Ridolphi Special Correspondent In the Central Region softball quarterfinals, Hanover and Patrick Henry fought each other tooth and nail for seven innings, and there was still no winner. Heading in to extra innings, a more than game Hawks squad had given the Patriots everything they could handle. But the Hawks (12-11) couldn’t hold off the Patriots in extra innings and PH needed only one inning of extra play to claim a 2-1 victory and a trip to the regional semifinals. With one out in the bottom of the eighth, Allison Tingler came up with a hit, driving in Kacie Melton for the winning run. The right fielder said she definitely felt the pressure as she came to bat against Hanover pitcher Erica Barrett with everything on the line. “My teammates stood behind me but it was a big moment,” she said. “She’d thrown me two rise balls that I missed so I was

Sam Moore closed out the first by making an athletic backhand catch on a grounder to short then throwing out Vinson at first. But lightening struck in the distance and the skies let loose, drowning the Prince George field. With water pooling over a majority of the infield, the decision was made to move the game to the JJ Moore rec complex where little rain fell five miles away. After nearly an hour delay, the game resumed at nearly 9 p.m. and both teams picked up where they left off. With two out in the top of

glad to get the hit.” Patriots’ coach Matt Crowder felt his team survived despite subpar play, which certainly would not carry them any further in the regionals. “Prince George is one of the best teams in the state, so we have our

work cut out for us,” he said. “We’ll have to play better than we did tonight.” Crowder was alluding to several key defensive miscues and some confusion on the base paths that allowed the Hawks to keep it close.

the third, the Patriots became the first team to get a runner into scoring position when Alley West stole third on a chip shot from Shanley O’Day. But Vinson managed to strike out Gilman to end the threat. The two teams remained scoreless until the bottom of the fifth, when the Royals finally made a solid connection on the ball. Prince George’s Katie Christopher nailed a shot to the right field fence, past the Patriots’ Allison Tingler. Christopher rounded the bags but held up at third when the ball reached the infield. But the throw to third baseman Kacie Melton, caromed off the tip of her glove to the grass, allowing Christopher to score the game’s only run.

“It started off in a weird way and I guess it ended in a weird way,” Crowder said. “That’s what I told the kids; basically it’s going to come down to a bounce for one team or the other. Unfortunately for us, the ball bounced the wrong way and they got the run in.” Moore was named to the region first team while Gilman, West and O’Day joined Mitchell on the second team.

Hanover got off to a quick start in the top of the first inning when Mary Beth Sciolino scored after some creative base running netted her two stolen bases. Catcher Lindsay Smith was caught in a rundown between first and second, and

Sciolino darted across the plate giving the Hawks a 1-0 lead. The Patriots wasted no time answering the visitors’ early score when Sam Moore drove in lead off batter Ally West with a shot to left field. Patrick Henry loaded the bases in the bottom of the second inning, but couldn’t push a run across. Melton was forced out at home. Shannon O’Day lined a drive down the right field line that could have blown the game open, but a controversial foul ball call ended the threat. The Patriot coaches contended the ball was touched first in fair territory well inside the line, but the call stood. For seven innings, Patriot pitcher Emma Mitchell pitched with a consistency that eventually wore down the Hawk offense. “She never got tired and got stronger as the game progressed,” Hawks coach Chris Pace said of Mitchell. “We used two pitchers and they used one and she wore us out.” The sophomore recorded seven strikeouts in the win, and continued an Iron Woman type

work schedule for the Patriots. “She’s pitched every inning for us this year,” Crowder said. ”She’s not flashy but she’s gotten the job done for us all year,” the coach added. “She’s always around the plate and people aren’t going to hit her hard consistently.” Mitchell has recorded over 200 strikeouts on the season. “That’s the most any kid here has ever had,” Crowder said. In the bottom of the eighth, Melton singled and worked her way to second base. Tingler, who was 2-for-3 on the evening, drove a ball to right field, scoring Melton and winning the game. “You never know what’s going to happen in this game,” Crowder said. “When your number nine hitter comes up and drives in the winning run, I guess you could say she was an unlikely hero, but we’ll take them any way we can get them at this time of year.” Hanover --------- 100 000 00 - 1 6 2 Patrick Henry.- 100 000 01 - 2 11 2 Albright, Barrett (5) and Smith; Mitchell and Gilman.

Charlottesville regional had strong local ties By Jim Ridolphi Special Correspondent Charlottesville, Va.– Last week’s opening game of the NCAA Baseball Regionals featured a match-up of in-state schools that provided just enough regional rivalry to make the mismatched contest interesting. Top seeded University of Virginia entered the double-elimination tournament with a 48-11 record. In their opener they faced a Virginia Commonwealth University team that played its way into the tourney with 35-24 record. While the game produced little drama as the Cavs coasted to a 15-4 win over the Rams, there was an ample amount of local flair for the capacity 4310 fans in attendance. Mechanicsville resident and VCU head coach Paul Keyes had the unenviable task of trying to quiet a group of UVA bats that had been on a tear since last week’s ACC Tournament win over Miami. In the end, the Cavs were too much for the visitors, and Keyes referred to another local connection as a key factor in the game. Former Midlothian pitcher Tyler Wilson came in the ball game and extinguished a potential fire as the Rams loaded the bases for the second consecutive inning. Keyes said he knew Wilson would be tough because he played with Wilson’s father more than a few years back. “He’s been like that his whole career,” Keyes said. “He came in today and threw some quality pitches.” Wilson acknowledged the Keyes connection when it was his turn at the mic for the postgame press conference. “There is definitely some background there between my dad and Coach Keyes and sure it was

42

great to play another Virginia school during regionals. “There is a lot of excitement no matter who we are playing,” Wilson added. “It is definitely nice to get that first victory out of the way and it’s a little bit sweeter to do it against VCU.” Wilson pitched three innings of flawless relief in an economical effort that left him ready as needed for future games. “I always want the ball,” he said. “It’s really a privilege to be handed the ball in a pressure situation, and everyone on our staff wants to be up there in a big situation like that.” Even with VCU’s losses and eventual elimination, Keyes is proud of the job he did with a young squad this year. After missing the CAA tournament for the past two seasons, the Rams made it to Wilmington and won three straight games to capture the title and advance to regional play. “Our goal was to hang in there for the first half of the game and keep it close, but we made some mistakes and couldn’t get the hit when we needed it,” Keyes said following the loss to Virginia. Keyes, in his 14th year at VCU, said he’s optimistic about a team that over achieved and reestablished a strong VCU baseball tradition. He attributed the turnaround to several factors. “We had some tough recruiting years and a transitional coaching year but we have better players this year. The (Richmond) Braves leaving didn’t help us because we couldn’t tell recruits where we would be playing,” Keyes said. “We’re just getting better players and it’s really helped us since the Squirrels arrived in town.” The Rams made their seventh regional, but Keyes said this one had a special flavor.

VCU head baseball coach Paul Keyes, a resident of Mechanicsville, offers some advice for his young players during the Rams’ NCAA reginoal opener against UVA in Charlottesville. Keyes was only one of several ties to the area on both teams.

“We’ve been to plenty of regionals but being in-state and to get a week of publicity is nice,” he said. But Keyes and Wilson weren’t the only area connection. Cavaliers’ first baseman John Hicks arrived in Charlottesville by way of Goochland High School. The sophomore, who is the younger brother of Randolph-Macon pitcher Kyle Hicks, is currently on an end of season tear that began with a walk off homer against UNC last month. Hicks went 4-for-5 against the Rams with four RBIs and a homerun. “After we got through the order the first time, we got used to (Cutler-Volz) and started seeing his pitches down a little bit more,” Hicks said. Regarding the four RBI performance, Hicks said the credit

goes to his teammates. “They were setting me up, and I was getting some good pitches to hit and luckily, they fell for me,” he said. For Hicks, the Cavs are hitting an offensive stride at the best possible time in the season. “Getting hot right away is definitely a good thing,” he said. “It seems like it kind of started against Miami last week when

we got the bats rolling a little bit. We were going to have to put up some runs. Their pitching staff usually keeps the game pretty low scoring. All of the teams here have a good pitching staff so to get confidence like that is really good for all of the guys.” Rams starting pitcher Seth Cutler-Volz is a Henrico High School product, while Paul Nice and Brent Mikionis are

Powhatan graduates. Pitchers Ryan Farrar (Atlee) is freshman on the Ram’s roster as well as Josh Alford (Trinity) and Blake Hauser (Manchester). Other area players on the UVA roster include former Trinity standout David Coleman, Will Roberts of Maggie Walker GS, as well as Reed Gragnani and Tyler Biddix of Mills E. Godwin.
