– Why pre-plan your funeral? – Peace of mind: pre-planning takes the burden of making important decisions off of your loved ones during a difficult time.

notes commendations, suggestions By Melody Kinser mkinser@mechlocal.com

A review of Hanover County Public Schools has determined the district operates in a highly effective manner. During the June 14 regular meeting, the Hanover County School Board received a report on the School Efficiency Review Program, which the system participated in from November through May. It is a voluntary project. The program was created in 2004 by Gov. Mark Warner to find ways to look at local school divisions to ask the questions that the General Assembly would ask of the Virginia Department of Planning and Budget. Working with the state on the project was Greg Gibson, president of Gibson Consulting in Austin, Texas. In presenting his overview, Gibson said the program “is really strong because it’s voluntary.� “We were not here to see how teachers teach,� he added. “It is your job to figure out what works instructionally for these kids, these students.� According to Gibson, his firm visited seven Hanover County schools. He went on-site at two of them. His report included: Key messages: � HCPS has a highly effective governance structure with stability not found in

public education today. � The division has a very constructive and collaborative relationship with Hanover County in jointly meeting the needs of its citizens. � HCPS reaches out to its community often, and values the input received. Virtually every major decision made by the school division has the benefit of community involvement. Strong results through a higher percentage of investment in instruction: � Student achievement is well above state averages in virtually all grade levels and subject areas. � The division spends a higher percentage of its expenditures on instruction than any other school division in Virginia. � The board and division leadership are committed to continuous improvement through a highly structured long-range planning process. High level of efficiency: � Net savings of the firm’s recommendations represent less than 0.1 percent of General Fund Operating Budget – savings identified in several areas; mostly offset by needed investments. � Improved efficiency can be achieved, but investments in technology are needed – administrative applications; process reengineering. � Balance of commendations and recommendations.

(Implementation includes software investment) Major commendations: � Low central office and administrative staffing levels. � Existence of automated tools at schools (attendance, substitutes). � Effective sharing of functions with Hanover County government (internal audit, grounds maintenance). � Very good management practices and customer service in many areas (human resources, food services). � Effective energy management program � Use of procurement cards to streamline purchasing. � Efficiency improvements in transportation. � Comprehensive technology support. � Effective “Blackboard� technology to share training and information divisionwide. Major recommendations: � Increased focus on processes and technology – taking a good division to the next level. � Invest in integrated systems (ERP and SIS). � Expand usage of existing systems (applicant tracking) � Implement additional software see EFFICIENCY, pg. 28

Votes in: new Y named Atlee Station Family YMCA In April, the YMCA of Greater Richmond asked the public to help determine a name for the new Y branch in Mechanicsville. Voters could go to the website, http://www. ymcarichmond.org/association, and cast a vote for an existing suggestion or submit their own idea. Two hundred thirty-seven votes were cast. After reviewing all suggestions and tallying the votes, the YMCA of Greater Richmond approved Atlee Station Family YMCA as the new branch name.

“We are thrilled by the response to the naming contest,� CEO Barry Taylor said, “and believe it shows the high level of community support the new Y will receive.� On Tuesday, June 21, the Y hosted a private celebration of the planned Atlee Station Family YMCA with community leaders and YMCA supporters at the nearby Rutland House. Slated to open in November, the 10,295-square-foot facility is under construction in the Rutland Business Park, adjacent

to the road of the same name, Atlee Station. Plans for the facility include group exercise classes, a wellness area with state-of-the-art fitness equipment, multipurpose space, a supervised area for children to play while their parents exercise, handicap accessible locker rooms and outdoor athletic fields for youth sports. “We believe this branch is going to be a community hub, and it will continue to evolve with the community,� said Taylor. In the coming months,

Blake Carleton, vice president of Membership, plans to host community conversations to determine program offerings at the new location. The YMCA of Greater Richmond serves more than 162,000 members and expects to serve more than 1,000 more families in Hanover County once the new facility opens late this year. Information submitted by Shelby Little, communications director, YMCA of Greater Richmond.

OPINION | The Local Views Guest columnist

Outgoing schools chief: thanks for community support Dear friends, Please accept this letter as a genuine expression of gratitude for and appreciation of the entire community’s support of your public schools. As Hanover County Public Schools begin a new and very exciting era, we can view the last 16 years as ones that have been remarkably rewarding and responsive to the challenges and opportunities faced by our students, their teachers, their school leaders, families and the community. For certain, what we have realized over these years reflects results and relationships often second to none. But, just as a school system reflects the community it serves, there will always be more to do. The entire community will once again be called to partner with the school district in new and meaningful ways as Dr. Jamelle Wilson assumes her role as Hanover’s 12th superintendent of schools. A veteran educator and leader, Dr. Wilson’s devotion to the noble mission of public education, coupled with her belief that every child should succeed, will be the measures by which the school community can respond to the new challenges and opportunities which certainly await her and the School Board. It will be very exciting to celebrate with Dr. Wilson as she invites and embraces the community’s collective support in a renewed effort to realize even greater levels of performance for Hanover County Public Schools. Thank you for your friendship, for your partnership and for your ongoing devotion to your school district’s excellence. Best wishes for a future of success and prosperity! Sincerely, Dr. Stewart D. Roberson Superintendent of Schools

OBITUARIES | Death Notices & Funerals E. Paul Adams, 58, of Mathews, passed away May 16, 2011 surrounded by his family, after a long battle with cancer. Survivors include his wife of 34 years, Arlene; daughters, Ava Adams and Ginger Case; sons, Michael Hall and Kevin Hall; two grandchildren, Mallory Hall and Emily Case, all of Mathews, and special aunt, Evelyn Adams. A memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Foster-Faulkner Funeral Home or the American Cancer Society. Marguerite Childress Anderson, wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, passed away peacefully on June 15, 2011 in her home at Covenant Woods in Mechanicsville. Mrs. Anderson was born on Nov. 22, 1921, to Harvey and Annie Childress, in Richmond, Va. She married her one true love, Robert H. Anderson of Richmond, in 1939. She proceeded to follow him around the world, a devoted Air Force pilot wife. She settled in Bon Air, upon her husband’s retirement in 1962, where she was very active in the community, especially Bon Air United Methodist Church, the family parish for four decades. She and her husband loved playing golf, traveling and playing Bridge with good friends. The Anderson house was known in the neighborhood as the place where you were always welcome, she would cook for anyone who happened to be around, and there were always many. Upon her husband’s death in 1985, she focused all of her great energy and joy on her family, and to this day, they are still growing. Her legacy is the family that she so loved and cared for throughout her remaining years. Known by those who knew and loved her by many affectionate names, Marguerite, Ritzie, Grandma and G.G. were some of

the names that over the course of four generations became synonymous with love, care and a willing ear. Mrs. Anderson is survived by three children, Robert H. Anderson Jr. (Reita) of Chester, Diane A. Nash (Kenneth) of Mechanicsville, Chris Anderson (MG) of Rockville, Virginia; and her sister, Jean Gainous. Also surviving in great numbers are 11 grandchildren and 33 great-grandchildren, of which she was most proud! She was a devout Christian, even in the last days of her life, gave thanks to God for those who cared for her and her family, never complaining, and always positive and very thankful for the life she was given. Apologies to Walt Whitman. “Entering thy sovereign, dim, illimitable grounds, To memories of our mother, to the divine blending, maternity, To her buried and gone, yet not buried, not gone from us, To her, the ideal woman, practical, spiritual, of all the earth, Life, love, to us the best.” We will miss you, Mom! The family received friends at Covenant Woods, 7090 Covenant Woods Dr., Mechanicsville, Saturday, June 18, 2011. Memorial services followed. In lieu of flowers, please make a contribution to the American Heart Association.

Saunders (Josh), Kelly Rhea and Taylor Jenkins and Elizabeth Blackwell. Christine was a loving and devoted mom, grandmother and great-grandmother. She was a long-time member of Fairmont

LETTERS Continued from pg. 8 b

gram. I cannot let these comments go unrebutted. I have two sons, both of whom spent four years in the Hanover baseball program. I think after eight years I have a pretty good idea about Coach Dragum and the program. I can say with certainty that Coach Dragum helped to make my sons the young men they are today. Coach Dragum is an amazing baseball coach. He knows the game, he loves the game, and he is a great teacher of the game. My sons certainly learned a great deal about baseball in their years in the program. What is equally important to my family is what my sons learned other than the game. Coach Dragum taught teamwork, dedication, work ethic and community service, among other things. These qualities transcend baseball and are invaluable.

During the eight years that my family was involved with the baseball program, I saw the baseball players under Coach Dragum excel on the field, in the classroom, and in the community. I watched with pride as they pulled together to support players and coaches going through personal hardships. I saw them assist and support community activities. I heard countless umpires, opposing coaches and fans commend them on the class and sportsmanship they demonstrated. Those things don’t just happen. Great coaches and great programs make them happen. Coach Dragum certainly took the time to get to know my sons, and they are better people for having known him. I cannot tell you how many times when writing an essay for an application, they chose to write about being a part of this great program. Several students, including my son, chose to invite Coach Dragum and other Hanover baseball coaches as the “teach-

er” they wanted to honor at the Hanover Scholars program. Certainly this shows how important the coaches and program are in the development of our young men. After four years, Mrs. Tyree believes players’ services are no longer required? I find that impossible to believe since I see players from the first years of the program still come back to support the team, help with camps, and participate in teambuilding. This is perhaps the greatest testament to what Coach Dragum has done with the Hanover baseball program and our young people. Terry Saunders Ashland

Chickahominy board support As the summer heats up, most of us turn our attention to vacation and weekends of leisure. We are not ready to rush through the summer just to get to the November elections of

2011. Good news! Those of us living in the Chickahominy District can enjoy our summer. While we are losing a stellar board representative in Bob Setliff, we have the opportunity to elect Angela Kelly-Wiecek. Republican Angela KellyWiecek will continue the strong, reasoned leadership we have been accustomed to in this district. Angela has engaged in public service during her years as a resident of Hanover. As the mother of an elementary school student, she is invested personally in Hanover schools. She is well versed on the issues that the county will face in the near future and will approach those issues with the utmost energy and concern. Our confidence in Angela can help us enjoy our summer plans and know that, come November, we can vote for her to continue strong representation for the Chickahominy district. David Hobbs

Refuting House speaker The familiar cry of “We don’t have a revenue problem, we have a spending problem” is a false claim that we Democrats need to refute vigorously. John Boehner, with tears in his eyes, cries out, “The USA is bankrupt” . . . but his statement is misleading and nonsense. The gross domestic product (GDP) of the USA is about $14 trillion. And our deficit is also around $14 trillion. So to most people’s thinking that means we as a country owe as much as we make. However, this is like comparing apples to oranges. The deficit should actually be compared to the total assets of the U.S. economy which are about $188 trillion. So the USA is not bankrupt. If the federal government defaults on its loans, no creditor, like China, would say, “OK, we will forgive your debt!”

Our creditors will simply tell the government to raise taxes and pay the debt. In other words, take a fair share from the largest corporations and billionaires to fix the problem. A decade ago, the federal government was running a surplus. This was before George W. Bush decided to reduce the tax rate for all Americans but the biggest beneficiaries were the wealthiest Americans. He did this against the advice of Alan Greenspan, chairman of the Federal Reserve. The tax cuts, two unfunded wars and the unfunded Medicare Part D. Medicare Part D provided more profits to the health care insurance companies. So, with an escalation of expenses and a reduction of revenue during the Bush Administration, we don’t have a spending problem, we have a revenue problem! Gordon Silver Mechanicsville

For whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. As a nation promotes sin, it sows corruption and its own destruction. God is not mocked and in the end a nation that promotes sin will be destroyed. The terribleness of this sin will lead to its destruction. The society that does this will collapse from its sinful mindset. Look at America, along with promoting immorality, it has run up over $14 trillion in debt. America has killed 55 million babies and is being overrun by illegal aliens. The nation is in rebellion against the Lord God of Israel and thus is self-destructing. There is no political way to stop this destruction. The root cause is spiritual, see LETTERS, pg. 15 `

Dad’s return from Afghanistan top graduation gift By Jim Fields jfields@mechlocal.com Taylor Williams graduated from Atlee High School on Saturday and none of the presents she received from family and friends came close to comparing to the one she got last Monday. A little after 1 p.m. on June 13, her mother, Vicki, sent her a text message that basically said she was at the school to pick her up and she’d meet her out front. When Taylor walked out of the building, not only was her mother there, but so was her father, Maj. Steven Williams, who had arrived just two hours earlier at Richmond International Airport from Afghanistan. “I knew he was coming home soon, but I didn’t know when,” Taylor said. “His coming home and being here for my graduation is the best present I’ll receive.” Williams is the acquisition officer for the 643rd regional support group

“The hardest part about going this out of Columbus, Ohio. His year in Afghanistan was at Kandahar airfield time was when I left,” Williams said and was his second deployment. His Thursday while relaxing in the living first was about 20 years earlier during see RETURN, pg. 21  Desert Storm.

Under the direction of Marshall Winn, the Virginia Department of Transportation picks up the orange bags collected by the female jail inmates or the probationers. VDOT also participates in the county’s semi-annual “road sweeping.” In the most recent sweep this spring, the county collected 110 tons of trash. Miranda Tyler of Hanover Community Corrections provides the names of individuals who have been assigned community service hours. These individuals sign in at the designated center and work as needed inside the facility collecting litter if they are under the age of 18. If older than 18 years of age, they are permitted to clean adjacent roadways.

ARC Continued from pg. 15 

Due to her mastery of many skills, willingness to apply herself and ask questions when she doesn’t understand something, Monique McMackle is nominated by her teacher for Outstanding Student. In addition to being organized and independent in her class work, Monique works in the front office at Atlee High School. She answers the call box to admit visitors to AHS, sorts and delivers mail. She is a selfstarter, acting when she sees a need and is a valued member of the office team. At the Raider Gallery (school’s cookie business) Monique has excellent customer service skills. She is an enthusiastic salesperson, makes change independently, counts the money from sales and assists

with the bank deposit. The qualities Monique demonstrates in educational and social environments – honesty, leadership skills, superior work ethic, responsible, positive attitude, and taking initiative make her a worthy recipient of the Raby Outstanding Teacher Award. Teacher and nominator Doris Hodges wrote: “It is a joy to teach Monique.” Raby Recognition Reward Award for Teachers “Leah Acors educates her students with disabilities so that they are on the pathway from disability to ability,” Ellen Bennett, nominator, grandmother and retired teacher, wrote. With two grandchildren taught by Acors for the past four years at Washington-Henry

Elementary School, Bennett has seen the positive effects of Acors’ teaching excellence. Bennett’s grandson has become an independent reader because of Acors’ teaching methods and her granddaughter’s self-esteem was boosted greatly by Acors. She made Monae feel wanted, taught her to write and ensured that she went on school trips. Bennett has seen the educational foundation that Acors’ has built in her grandchildren. Because of her outstanding and consistent communication with parents there is continuity of work from school to home daily. “Ms. Acors is a wonderful teacher who is highly thought of by parents; she is very deserving of the Raby Outstanding Teacher Award”, said Jennifer Lenz, principal of Washington Henry Elementary School.

room of his family’s home. “The day after I left was our son’s 18th birthday and his high school graduation was a few days later. I was really disappointed that I missed those events.” When asked if he was exposed to combat situations, he responded that rockets and bullets were always being fired at the base. “I remember walking through the dining facility watching rockets being fired out of the compound and walking through the dining facility watching Monday Night Football,” he said. “Just that quick, while eating my breakfast, the situation went from combat to watching Monday Night Football.” Williams said he would always remember the importance placed on dignified transfer ceremonies. “Kandahar is a hub. We had a lot of soldiers and supplies that came through Kandahar,” he said. “We also had soldiers come through Kandahar that had fallen on the field of battle on their way to Dover Air Force Base. It didn’t matter what time of the day or night it was -when they arrived at Kandahar, there was a dignified transfer ceremony for every one of them, with all the pomp and circumstance they deserved. It kept reminding us that there was a war.” The 643rd is a 60-man unit. “We all came home,” he said with a smile. “We went over as a unit and came home as one,

every one of us. We didn’t lose anybody over there, and that’s a good feeling.” The major said another thing he will remember about Afghanistan is how dusty it was. “Dust is to Afghanistan like fog is to London,” he said. “It’s the dirtiest place I’ve ever been. I can’t tell you how good it is to be home and breathe clean air and see green grass.” The 643rd welcome home ceremony was Tuesday in

Indiana. Unit Commander Col. Chris Gentry addressed his troops and complimented them on their work and the 16-hour days they often put in. His final order was to release the unit from active duty as they now transition back to Active Reserve. As for his military future, Williams has 25 years of service and said he plans to stay in a little longer. “I anticipate making lieuten-

ant colonel next year,” he said. “After that, I’m not sure how much longer I might stay in. We’ll have to see then.” As for now, he’s going to enjoy a well deserved rest. “I’m going to relax for a few weeks and then get back to work with my old job at Quantico,” he said. “I’m looking forward to Taylor’s graduation, seeing some family and friends, and catching up on some sleep.”

Robotics team visits Dominion

Members of the Hanover High School robotics team, called the Defenders of the Multiverse, recently visited Dominion’s Emissions Monitoring Support group near the Chesterfield Power Station. Defenders of the Multiverse is part of a national program called FIRST, or For Inspiration & Recognition of Science & Technology, that encourages young people to explore learning and careers in science and engineering. Ken Atkins, instrument technician, demonstrated how the automated stack testing equipment known as the MultiAutomated Probe, or MAP, system works. The Emission Monitoring Support group submits more than 1,200 tests and reports annually in accordance with Environmental Protection Agency and state regulations from 18 power stations. “The students were intrigued with the equipment, as the technologies and controls used to build and operate the MAP system are the same that the students used to build and operate their FIRST competition robots,” Dennis Nowlin, technical specialist, said. The MAP system, designed by Dominion, started as a concept in 2006 to automate

a manual and costly data-collection process and improve accuracy when testing environmental emissions within power plant stacks or ducts. Currently, Dominion is the only utility that has undertaken a design measure of this type with a patent on the technology issued in late 2009. Using three to four technicians, testing times per station have been reduced from about six to eight hours to less than

three hours per unit operating condition. By using the MAP automated flow system, initial estimates of the cost savings to Dominion is about $5.6 million a year. “The demonstration gave students the opportunity to see firsthand how the knowledge acquired and lessons learned in competition can be applied to our industry,” Atkins said. “The students demonstrated a fine-tuned level of attention and

understanding of the concepts of our system. Our engineering future is in good hands.” The Hanover Robotics team partnered with two high schools from New Jersey to win the 2011 Virginia Regional FIRST Robotic Team Competition. Each team designed, built and programmed a robot that participated in a high-tech competition game. Information submitted by Tom Morris, Dominion.

We all know The Economy has made it tough on everyone the last few years. But it’s time to move forward. It’s time to make today the day you’ve been waiting for.

There will be an ID Theft meeting at Covenant Woods Community Center from 3-4 p.m. Did you miss out on taking the 12 hour course on Fraud Prevention held at Covenant Woods in March? Since that program was such a huge success, we wanted to offer a shorter 3-part series on all the major areas of fraud. The first session will be on ID Theft. You will learn how citizens have been taken advantage of, and how we as individuals can help reduce, if not eliminate, the chances for us to become victims, whether it is reducing the opportunities by phone, mail, email, sweepstakes, shopping, credit cards, etc. In August, we will offer a program on Medicare and Secondary Insurance Fraud; and in September, learn about Charity and Telemarketing Fraud. Don’t miss out– learn to be pro-active in preventing yourself from becoming a victim of fraud. The program is free to attend but please RSVP by calling 569-4277.

The Testifying Toastmasters meet at 6:30 p.m. at Hanover Church of the Nazarene on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month.

Are Confederates eyeing a repeat? Core of talent could carry Lee-Davis back to state championship

2011 VHSL Group AAA State Softball Champions The Lee-Davis Confederates

By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Last Thursday afternoon, the Lee-Davis softball team wrapped up a few loose ends on the 2011 season. The Confederate players gathered to get sized for their state championship rings, pose for the team picture that rain prevented in Chantilly and autograph softballs for players, coaches and school administrators. But don’t expect the threads of the 2011 prosperity to begin unraveling as the school year ends. While the C-feds celebrated this year’s Group AAA state championship run, in the back of their minds there was already thoughts of making a third straight trip to the state title game next season and the possibility of a repeat championship. There is no question LeeDavis Coach Jackie Davis will miss the talents of graduating seniors, Charyssa Parent in centerfielder, Taylor Melton at short, Meredith Holmes at first, Rachel Houff in left and substitute Ashlee Nuckols. Those seniors provided the guidance that carried the Confederates to a 26-1 season and a state title. “They’re a good group,” Davis said. “The thing that impressed me about them this

By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com When Lee-Davis claimed the Group AAA State Softball Championship, it was merely the pinnacle in what was already a milestone season for Hanover County High School athletics. Years from now, the players and fans alike will be able to look back on the 2010-2011 season as one for the record books. The school year kicked off with the Hanover and Atlee football teams rumbling into the season as two of the most dominant in the Central Region. Atlee rolled out to a school record 5-0 start while the Hawks finished the regular season with a perfect 10-0 record and the school’s first Capital District football championship. Along the way, Hanover defeated perennial state powerhouses Highland Springs and Varina en route to an 11-1 year. By season’s end Lee-Davis had joined their ranks as well. A slow start by the Confederates was all that kept them from being the most dangerous team in the Central Region playoffs. In field hockey it was the Hawks setting records again, not only claiming Hanover’s first Capital District regular season title with a 9-0 regular season record, but their first district tournament title and advancing to regional play for

year was how well we gelled as a team. That’s leadership. They did a nice job of leading us and they got us exactly where we wanted to go. They made sure that we finished it.” Houff agreed. “We gradually progressed and grew as a team,” she said. “We’ve all

setting lofty goals following last year’s runner-up finish. “(We) made it all the way to the state championship game and coming up short, that was depressing but I think that gave us the fire to come out this season and get done what we needed to do and win the state,” Holmes said. “We knew we wanted to be back and we knew that we had the experience that we needed to come back and be successful,” Davis said. “Going into the state tournament I felt like we were in a whole another place this year. They were focused, they were ready to go, they had the mindset that we were not going to beat ourselves.” Among team goals were an undefeated Capital District regular season, a district tournament championship, advancing to the regional championship, winning the region, advancing to and winning the state championship. “We hit every single goal,” Davis said. But along with ambitions for the season, Davis set 12 daily goals for the players to attain. “They’re the everyday goals that we want to do every

single day whether it be in practice or a game,” she said. Among them were; Work Hard-Focus, Execute short game, Respect, Stay positive on and off field, Communicate, Improve every day, Trust your coaches/teammates. Listen to constructive criticism, Be supportive and Hustle. It was the team ability to concentrate on those daily goals that helped them attain their long-range objective. “Achieving the main goal that we wanted to set, which was being state champions, being able to accomplish that, especially as a senior, is definitely something I’ll be able to remember for a long time and be able to talk about,” Melton said. Nuckols agreed. “We’ve been together for so long, we really deserved it this year.” With one championship under their belt, the returning Lee-Davis players will weigh the odds of a repeat- and that likelihood is favorable. Any team with Kelly Heinz, this year’s Gatorade Player of the Year, in the circle automatically moves to the front of the pack, but it is the players complimenting Heinz which will give Lee-Davis the best chance to repeat. The pitching of Heinz has

eluded batters for three seasons, but without a top-notch presence behind the plate, any pitcher can be rendered helpless. After two years catching, sophomore Haleigh Cottrell has become the perfect compliment to Heinz. Then there’s Casey Price, who has the speed and arm to play any position in the outfield. Price also developed into one of the team’s most reliable hitters down the stretch. At third, Lacie Madison has been an anchor for the infield and another solid contributor on offense. But perhaps the biggest sur-

prise of this season came from the contributions of freshmen Ryleigh Hawker at second and Kinsee Stonebreaker as a pinch runner. “Ryleigh Hawker played very well,” Davis said. “She definitely did not play like a freshman in the state tournament. That double-play she played against Battlefield was really the difference maker in the game. She also had two of her hits against Battlefield. “Kinsee Stonebreaker does an awesome job on the bases for Kelly,” Davis added. “It’s nice to be able to have speed that is a smart base runner that

Patriots provided a key to Confederates’ championship By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com While a year of expectations, lofty goals and hard work brought the Lee-Davis softball team back to the state championship game and on to the Group AAA title, the team got a boost from an unexpected source along the way. Patrick Henry was the only team to defeat Lee-Davis this season and in doing so the Patriots may have provided the necessary push for the Confederates to claim the state trophy.

When Patrick Henry handed Lee-Davis a 1-0 loss on May 11, Confederates’ head coach Jackie Davis was clearly irritated by her team’s performance. “I was mad at first because we did not play well in that game,” she said. But after speaking to reporters, Davis settled down and saw the loss in a different light. “I brought the team back together that night and said, ‘Look, in the whole scheme of things, this is a non-district game in the regular season that does not matter’,” Davis said. “’Hopefully in four weeks we’re

going to look on tonight and go, hey we learned a lesson. We know we have to come ready to play. We have to be focused. We have to get up for every game.’” As a result of the loss, Davis switched Rachel Houff and Casey Price in the outfield. Until then Price had played left while Houff was in right. But with opponents directing a majority of their offense towards right field, Davis wanted to put her best arm in that position. On offense, Davis flipflopped Price and Kelly Heinz in the batting order to have a solid

presence behind her pitcher. Prior to that, opponents could pitch around the potent Heinz to get to the next batter. With the switch, Price provided a powerful offensive presence with a runner on base which proved vital during the title run. “I think that really was a lesson learned for us,” Davis said. “We were able to refocus. We made some lineup changes at that point to try to get more production and solidify our defense and I think all of the things that came out of that loss was nothing but positives.”

we can put in, in situations like that.” But there is also talent waiting in the wings “We have some role players that didn’t see a lot of time, that may eventually, hopefully, come back and fight for a starting position next year,” Davis said.

All of which makes the coach very optimistic about next season. “I’d like to say that the goals you see in our locker room will be the same goals in the locker room next year,” she said. “So I’ll be excited to try and go get it again next year.”

Kyle Bishop bids fond farewell to Atlee Pole vaulting era comes to an end for Raiders By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com This past week brought an end to the school year at Atlee High School, but also the close of a remarkable era for Raiders’ pole vault program. Not only did Atlee bid farewell to the most prolific vaulters in school history, seniors Cameron Overstreet and Chris Pillow, but the man who developed their talent along of countless others over the years; Coach Kyle Bishop. “My daughter graduated. All my kids except one is a senior, so it’s now time to find a new challenge,” Bishop said after watching both Overstreet and Pillow claim Group AAA state championship titles two weeks ago. Bishop has yet to reveal what the future holds, but there are no questions as to what he has done in his past. In many ways, Bishop played a major role in

A 30-year veteran pole vault coach, Kyle Bishop (in orange), has decided it’s time to bid farewell to Atlee High School and move on to new challenges. Over his coaching career in Hanover County Bishop has developed countless top pole vaulters reaching a pinnacle this season with a pair of state championships.

coaches in the area,” he said. “I kind of felt like, there was a time when there was a whole movement to get ride of the pole vault, like Chesterfield did

175 undefeated but true test lies ahead By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Former Lee-Davis player Brandon Angus came into the American Legion baseball season sporting a little rust. Because he took a post-graduate year at FUMA, Angus went a long time without playing the game. On Sunday, the offensive layoff showed through for Angus as he started with a 0-3 mark at the plate against Post 184-P. “At the beginning of the game I didn’t feel like I was doing so hot,” Angus said. But in the bottom of the eighth, Angus made up for the missed efforts with the first

grand slam of his baseball career to give Post 175 a walk-off 11-1 victory over Post 184-P. “That last at bat I was just like, ‘I need to get a hit somewhere’,” he said. “I just took off, spread out a little bit and put the ball in play, it just so happened I hit a home run, actually a walkoff grand slam.” With an 11-1 win, Mechanicsville maintained an unblemished 3-0 record going into the third week of the American Legion season. However, appearances can be deceiving. After two weeks of play nearly half of Post 175’s games have suffered rain outs, which means the already tough

schedule will get even more difficult as the season progresses. Mechanicsville is slated to play five games this week and seven over a nine day period with the possibility of rescheduled rainouts being thrown in on the open dates. “We’ll find out what we’re made of in the next couple of weeks because we’ll play about 10 or 11 games in about 13 days,” said Post 175 head coach Eddie see ANGUS, pg. 42 ` Charlie Leffler/The Local

at that point in time. I wasn’t able to stop them.” The loss of the sport spurred Bishop’s move from Chesterfield to Hanover County, where he

took on the job of pole vaulting coach at Lee-Davis High School. Bishop felt it was his duty to make sure the sport sur-

vived. The perception was, and rightfully so, that pole vaulting was too expensive a sport for the limited number of athletes see BISHOP, pg. 41 `

Baseball saw Atlee’s return to power, as the Raiders claimed both the Capital District regular season and tournament titles. In soccer, the Hanover boys ran past perennial district powers Atlee and Lee-Davis to take the Capital District regular season title while the Confederates became the unlikeliest tournament champions, winning the trophy despite a 6-9-2 record. The Atlee girls claimed yet another district title while and oft-injured Hanover squad gritted it out and advanced to regional play with a 6-9-2 record. But it was softball that was the sport of the year in Hanover County. Overshadowed by LeeDavis’ state championship is the fact that every county team was ranked in the Top-10 for most of the season. Patrick Henry, the only team to defeat Lee-Davis this season, swept both the Colonial District regular season and tournament. Hanover overcame early season struggles to edge out Atlee and return to regional play. All in all it was a year to remember and one that will be difficult to match in the seasons ahead.

of competition and everything,” Overstreet said. “He can always read your moods. If you need to be pushed, if you need to be yelled at, he’s there to do that. If you’re feeling a little down that day, he’s there to motivate you more softly.” Now the time is right for Bishop to step away. Having developed both Overstreet and Pillow into two of the nation’s top pole vauters in the same year. But Bishop will leave behind an unforgettable legacy. “I owe my complete four years, all my success to him,” Overstreet said. “I feel like he’s a part of my family because most of the time I see him more than I see my parents. It’s going to be sad next year not working with him. I know I’m going to have great coaches working at UNC, but really, everything I owe to him.” For Bishop, it’s all about knowing the athlete. “Knowing a statistic about them and knowing their name is one thing,” he said. “But really knowing the kid, and because I only work with about a half dozen kids, I know the kids, I know their families. It’s a very a very tight knit group. They’re great. The kids I’ve had the last few years have just been awesome.”

the first time. Cross country showed the emergence of Hanover freshman Molly Breidenbaugh, who along with senior Anna Gordon attained All-State status. Breidenbaugh finished first in the Capital District, fourth in the Central Region and sixth in the state. Meanwhile her male counterparts claimed Hanover’s first boys Capital District cross country title. The Atlee girls volleyball team also went into the record books by finishing the season with a 26-2 record and taking the Raiders to the state semifinals for the first time. The local schools did not cool off with the arrival of winter as the Hanover wrestling team repeated as Central Region champions while Tanner Tinsely claimed the state title in the 152 class. The girls’ basketball season was filled with surprises for local teams. Patrick Henry rolled through a stellar regular season which saw Taylor Huber become the leading scorer, boys or girls, in school history.

Both Hanover and LeeDavis supplied inspirational moments. The Confederates completed a remarkable turnaround to finish fourth in the Capital District while Hanover made a highly unexpected trip to regional play. Meanwhile the Hanover boys also returned to regional play for the first time since the Ed Davis era. In gymnastics Atlee tied for fifth in the state while swimming saw the Raiders take both boys and girls Central Region titles. But the highlight of the winter season was clearly claimed by the Atlee boys Indoor track & field squad which claimed the school’s first state title. It was also the first boys state championship in any sport for the Raiders. Senior pole vautlers Cameron Overstreet and Chris Pillow entered the year as two of the best in the state and exited the cold of winter among the best in the nation. Not to be outdone, the Atlee boys kept their stride in the spring and matched their Indoor title by taking the state Outdoor title in one of the closest meets in VHSL history.

involved. “It’s hard to justify that amount of money for so few kids,” Bishop said. Therefore Bishop not only helped the Confederate pole vaulters but any who needed training. “I figured I’m going to help everybody and if I help everybody then that will give me competition and will give me and everybody else a reason to have the events.” With the opening of Atlee in the 1990’s Bishop made the move to the new school and soon afterward found salvation for pole vaulting when the sport underwent a gender movement. “It really became a sport for the girls, actually about 15 years ago,” Bishop said. “Women saved the pole vault. All of a sudden it’s double the amount of students using the equipment and it’s easier to justify the expense.” With the pressure of survival relieved, Bishop could go back to developing talent and 2011 served as a pinnacle with the achievements of Overstreet and Pillow. What makes Bishop a good coach? “To begin with, he has so

much experience,” Overstreet said. “He’s dealt with all types of attitudes, all types of styles. He’s been there, done it.” Pillow agreed. “He just knows everything about the vault.” More importantly, after 30 years of coaching Bishop knows how to read his vaulters. “I’ve been there, done that and gotten the t-shirt several times,” he said. “I tell these kids, ‘This is your first senior year. This is my 30th senior year as a coach, so I know how these things work.’” A coaching adjustment Bishop made to help Pillow achieve records was never telling him what the height was. “That’s a thing that me and my coach do,” Pillow said. “He doesn’t tell me the height, he tells me just jump it so it doesn’t get in my head.” With Pillow looking to make his final run at the state championships, Bishop knew his vaulter so well he predicted the outcome. “I turned to the guys, ‘He’s nervous. He’s going to run through, then he’s going to just barely tip it off,’ because that’s what you do when you’re in a new situation.” Pillow did exactly as Bishop forecast. “He knows the nervousness

Renovated rings await Deep Run participants Annual show leaps into action June 22 By Jim Ridolphi For The Mechanicsville Local Equestrians from across the region are once again preparing to make the trip to Goochland County for one of the South’s oldest and most prestigious horse shows. The Deep Run Horse Show opens June 22 and runs through June 26 at the Manakin show grounds. The event has a rich history in Goochland, and annually attracts some of the best riders in the region for the five-day competition, highlighted by the Bryan Trophy competition on the final day. “The Deep Run Horse Show is over 50 years old and has been held each year at the current location in ManakinSabot on the Deep Run Hunt Show Grounds” said Deep Run Horse Show Association president Pam Johnson. “It began

in the early sixties as a twoday Junior Show and evolved and grew into our current five day Professional and Junior/ Amateur AA Rated USEF show. Last year we were honored to have been designated a USEF Heritage Competition,” she added. Show officials are expecting a healthy turnout for the traditional competition. “This show will once again draw over 400 horses from the east coast,” Johnson said. “Riders will compete for prize money and points in our many rated divisions. The points earned will go towards the end of the year zone and national awards. New this year is our designation as a World Champion Hunter Rider Event. Deep Run will be one of 50 shows to offer the chance for riders to earn points toward this end of the year coveted award,” she added. The show’s signature event, the Bryan Trophy Medal Class is scheduled for Sunday morn-

ing, the final day of the event. Markel Insurance Company will again sponsor the event. The 50th edition of the competition, and will dedicate the event to the memory of their employee and longtime supporter of the Goochland event, Mary Anne Conrad Kean. “She served as the show manager when it grew from a two- day to our now five-day schedule,” Johnson said. “Mary Ann was an equine life underwriter for over 26 years and was an unfailing supporter of this show. She will be sorely missed.” Kean worked as a Markel underwriter, and served as a steward for events around the state until her death in March. Deep Run will also dedicate its Thanksgiving show to the memory of Kean. Participants will also notice some enhanced surroundings on the grounds this year. The competition areas have undergone total renovations.

On Sunday, Gates was missing eight of the nineteen players currently on the roster. “It will be a test to see how much pitching we have,” said Jordan Boze. “We’re going to need a lot of pitching. We’re going to have to have guys come back and pitch multiple innings. If it’s this hot still we might be exhausted.” With only three games played heading into the third week of the season, the players are still getting to know one another while many opponents have already gelled. In comparison, Post 184-P was playing in its seventh game on Sunday.

Post 175’s Conner Hall made a body-sacrificing play by coming up with a diving stop on a ball hit to third.

Playing in Mechanicsville’s favor is the fact that the players on hand are not lacking in talent and the equally shorthanded Post 184-P squad was out-matched from the onset, offering little challenge after the initial innings. On the mound, Boze turned in a dominating eight strikeout, five hit, complete game effort, while keeping himself under 83

pitches on the day. “Jordan looked extremely good,” Gates said. “He pitched extremely well today.” “I pitched a lot of fastballs,” Boze said. “I think I ended up throwing 10 curveballs the whole day. I felt good all week.” Post 175 also got a huge defensive boost from the outstanding sacrifice-your-body play of Conner Hall at third.

“Both rings underwent a complete renovation over the winter as we continue to strive to offer the best footing possible. We are deeply grateful to our many contributors who generously donated to our Ring Renovation Fund Raiser and made this work possible,” Johnson said. Betsy Thompkins will again serve as chairman of this year’s show. “She continues to keep the show on the cutting edge of horse show management technology, keeps our website up to date and has made access to our prize list widely available on the web,” said Johnson. As in the past, the show is made possible by the dedicated support of an energetic crew of volunteers. Johnson said they make this event run smoothly, as well as many other shows throughout the year. “The Deep Run Hunt Horse

Show Association is a board of dedicated horse enthusiasts who work tirelessly offering and promoting top quality horse shows in this area. We are pleased to manage and offer our beautiful show grounds to all who enjoy the horse

“He’s a brute,” Gates said. “You tell him to play back he doesn’t want to. He wants to stay up, take a ball off the chest, body, wherever.” Boze only lapse of the day came on a seventh inning outside fastball that he pulled a little bit, allowing 184-P’s Tyler Burnette to send it out of the park for his team’s only run of the contest. On the mound, Burnette was no match for the Mechanicsville bats and Post 175 was only limited by their own running miscues. On the day the team was picked off four times in an attempt to steal second. “We need to look at the situations, who’s come to bat, play a little smarter in that aspect,” Gates said. “If there was one downfall it was the missing of signals and getting caught stealing at second.”

In the bottom of the first, Mechanicsville put three runners on base, two were caught on steals and the third on a forceout at second. Post 175 got on the board in the bottom of the second when Boze led off with a single to right, Conner Hall was walked and Travis Tyree singled to center, loading the bases. A sacrifice to left from Jack Edwards brought home Boze and followed by the same from Patrick Holler to plate Hall for a 2-0 lead. Mechanicsville added two more in the bottom of the fourth when a double down the third base line from Daniel Burroughs drove in Hall and Edwards. Angus reached via walk in the fifth, stole second then third on a wild throw. A walk of Will Connerley put runners at the corners and a double to left cen-

sport,” she said. The show opens daily at 8 a.m. Johnson said the event is open to the public. “We hope many will want to come watch, eat, shop and enjoy the day with us.”

ter by Boze drove them both home for a 6-0 lead. With 184-P reliever Brendan Schnell on the mound in the eighth, Edwards reached on an error, then Holler and Burroughs singled to load the bases. A single by Michael Thomas drove in Edwards and brought Angus to the plate. Thomas then made a prediction. “When Michael Thomas got on first base he said, ‘Brandon’s going to hit a grand slam here and we’ll end it early’,” Gates said. Angus proved him correct.

O

n behalf of the Hanover County School Board, it is my true honor to welcome you to the 2011 Commencement Services and to congratulate the fine graduates we are assembled to honor. As you may be aware, today marks the last day I will have this opportunity to greet Hanover’s graduates as the superintendent of schools. So, in speaking of being truly honored to be here, it is also my tremendous privilege to introduce to all of you my successor, Hanover’s twelfth Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Jamelle S. Wilson. I know that everyone joins me in congratulating Dr. Wilson as the first internal candidate to become Hanover’s superintendent in 75 years. She and the School Board will forge a partnership which is certain to move our school district to very exciting levels of performance! So, graduates, as we see, you and I have a lot in common today. Though I have had the opportunity during my career as a superintendent to shake the hands of nearly 30,000 graduates, today is different. Today, you and I transition to new chapters in our lives. Many of us have been with Hanover’s schools for at least 13 years and all of us are taking our experiences accumulated here and applying them in a way which builds upon the joys of being in this special place. But, graduates, what we don’t have in common is that none of you has already had a 35 year career! So, since my experiences have been pretty full already, I’m going to return to my roots for a few moments- my roots as teacher. And I’m going to ask you to imagine that you are in elementary school one last time. Though I may not resemble today any elementary teacher you may ever remember, if I could, I would ask you to gather round in a circle and let me read this book to you. Of course, that’s logistically impossible, but this book, Yay, You! is one that has a lesson for all of us in this room regardless of where we’re sitting, and regardless of where we are on life’s journey. It speaks to all of us who are going through a transition, whether we are a graduate or an adult.

Yay, You!- Moving Out, Moving Up, Moving On

2011 Graduation Remarks Now, what will you do? There are so many choices. The world is immense. Take a good look around And decide what makes sense. Some like to go fast. Some like to go slow Some like to get going however they go. Some strive to be peaceful, and joyful, and wise. Some choose to just ponder the size of their thighs. So look north! And look south! Look ahead! Look behind! Stare into the mirror. Now. What do you find? Should you live where it’s cold? Should you live where it’s hot? Do you want to be terribly busy? Or not? Do you needs lots of friends, or only a few?

You already have wit. You already have style. You have very kind eyes and a dazzling smile. But now… But now… But now… But NOW… Hey! What’s the hurry, anyhow? There are PLACES TO GET TO! And PROJECTS TO DO! PEOPLE TO TALK WITH, and LUNCHES TO CHEW! But stopping a while is okay, too. And whatever you doNow or later, Big or small, Loud or quiet--Whatever you do, Don’t worry. Just try it. Whatever you do, Whether near or so far, I know you’ll be great. You already are!

Would you like to have friends with a new point of view?

Or does art move your soul?

Graduates, it is my true honor to be with you today and to congratulate you as you come across the stage. I wish for you and for all assembled the happiest, healthiest, and most prosperous futures possible.

Do you listen to rivers, or to great rock and roll?

Thank you!

Is your mind moved by science?

Do you long for adventure? Do you love to read maps? Would you rather stay home with your chocolate, perhaps?
