STOPS AT EVERY HOME IN TOWN

Proffer collection policy clarified By Jim Ridolphi news@mechlocal.com Reacting to a new General Assembly law regarding the collection of proffers, county attorney Sterling Reeves presented a resolution designed to clarify the county’s position at Wednesday’s meeting of the Hanover County Board of Supervisors. Hanover currently collects proffers at the time building permits are issued, but the new state guidelines are designed to allow homeowners more time

to pay the fees. Effective July 1, it’s understandable that homecash proffers will be collected builders association would welcome the between the changes, but final inspection “Because of the the new law’s and issuance of historically low ramifications a certificate of occupancy. rates on savings also affect the “The idea accounts, the loss counties that was to save the to the county is not collect proffers. homebuilder that significant.” At first an amount STERLING RIVES glance, the of interest on County attorney bill could their construchave affected tion loans, and Hanover’s cash that’s not a bad idea,” Rives said. He said flow and interest income, but

on closer examination, Rives said that’s not the case. “Because of the historically low rates on savings accounts, the loss to the county is not that significant,” he said. The county attorney’s main concern was the “practical issues” surrounding the new requirements that would force the county to assess and collect proffers on properties in a matter of hours. In many cases, Rives said the period between final inspection see PROFFER, pg. 4 `

Emotions varied for Jewish teen in visits to Poland, Israel By Melody Kinser mkinser@mechlocal.com Having grown up hearing the stories of the Holocaust, 16-year-old Rebeccah Bassell experienced a myriad of emotions when she visited Poland and Israel with a Jewish youth organization.

“We first saw the concentration camps in Auschwitz, Birkenau, Treblinka and Majdanek,” Rebeccah said of her time in Poland. “I think going through each of the camps is different in the experience that you feel. Each has its own incredibly different feel.” She said Auschwitz “felt just like a movie set. It didn’t feel very realistic to me. It was left intact, but not as realistic as Majdanek, which was left perfectly intact.” see VISITS, pg. 14 `

Teen advocates for pediatric healthcare A Mechanicsville teen, who is a Children’s Hospital of Richmond patient, and his parents recently traveled to Washington, D.C., as part of a national effort to advocate for pediatric healthcare. Fourteen-year-old Blake Rush and his parents, Kevin and Donna Rush, joined patients and families from children’s hospitals across the country to advocate on behalf of their hospitals as part of the sixth annual National Association of Children’s Hospitals (N.A.C.H.) Family Advocacy Day. Blake, a student at Stonewall Jackson Middle School, served as the local champion and his family shared their story to illustrate why all children need children’s hospitals. Blake was born with spina bifida, a neural tube defect in which the bones of the spine do not completely form. At 16 months, he was admitted to Children’s Hospital for surgery, and has been receiving physical therapy ever since. He is a very independent and active young man, despite his reliance on a wheelchair for mobility. The Rush family continues to be Blake’s biggest advocate and were chosen because of their dedication to him and all children. “We want to help all families and telling our story makes a difference,” Donna Rush said. When asked about the trip, Blake said, “It was awesome.” Blake and his family met with U.S. Sen.

Deputies will be conducting several checkpoints from July 2 through Sept. 3. Exact times and locations are not being released. Officers will stop all vehicles pass-

ing through each checkpoint. Each driver will be advised of the purpose of the checkpoint and requested to present their driver’s license.

Wreck claims Fauquier woman An accident that occurred early last Wednesday morning in Hanover County claimed the life of a Fauquier County woman. According to Sgt. Thomas Molnar of the Virginia State Police, Gretchen C.

She was ejected from the vehicle and died at the scene. It is being investigated as to whether

Underwood was wearing her seatbelt. The fatality took place on the southbound side of Interstate 295 about a half mile north of Route 627 Pole Green Road. Trooper B.S. Butchyk responded to the scene at 1:44 a.m. Molnar said speed is considered to be a factor in the crash. The crash remains under investigation. Information supplied by Sgt.

The Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office needs assistance in identifying those responsible for a recent commercial burglary. Between the hours of 10 p.m. June 2 and 7a.m. June 3 suspect(s) forced entry into Ashcourt Cleaners at 9502 Chamberlayne Road. The busi-

ness was entered through the drive-thru window. A suspect was injured during the break-in. Suspects are believed to be operating a light blue older model vehicle with faded paint. They are described as: white male, 6’ to 6’2”, 155 to 185 pounds, thin build, believed to have a cut on his right hand;

white male, 5’4” to 5’8”, 140 to 160 pounds, brown hair; and white female, 5’7” to 5’9”, 125 to 140, blond hair. Anyone with information on this crime is urged to contact the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office at 365-6140 or Crime Stoppers at 780-1000.

PROFFER

future cases. Counties who meet certain growth criteria are allowed to collect proffers, or payments for increased service costs due to residential growth in a rezoned area. Hanover had collected the fees, currently set at around $19,000, since 1992. The funds have allowed the county to construct fire stations, schools and other capital improvements in high growth residential areas without placing additional burdens on its taxpayers. Supervisors agreed with the proposed resolution and passed it unanimously. Glenn Millican’s nomination for the Mechanicsville seat on the Hanover County School Board also was unanimously approved by the supervisors. In other matters, they approved a request by the Parks and Recreation Department to amend a conditional use permit in order to allow overnight camping at Taylor Park on Patrick Henry Road. Boy Scout official Dave

Jackson said the designation will allow his troops to remain closer to home for camping trips and other functions, and urged the board to approve the use on the 53-acre site. For 22 years, the Doswell Ruritan Club has maintained the old Doswell School as a community center. The board approved a rezoning and ordinance amendment that will allow a continuation of the building’s use, placing the district in an historic overlay preservation status. County administrator Rhu Harris reminded the members and citizens of some upcoming changes in local government services on July 1. Due to budget restraints, convenience centers will close on Wednesdays with the exception of U.S. 301. “This is one of our unfortunate but necessary budget cuts,” Harris said. Harris also announced that county offices would remain open until 5 p.m. after July 1, adding an additional half hour to their hours of operation.

and occupancy permitting represents only a couple of hours in Hanover, and expressed concerns the new payment policies could lead to some confusion on the part of homebuilders. The county’s current policy allows homeowners to apply for loans that include the cost of proffers before they begin construction. Rives said some homebuilders could be surprised with the presentation of a $19,000 bill just prior to moving in. The resolution requires that homeowners be notified of the proffers and the due dates before obtaining a building permit, therefore eliminating that element of surprise. Rives also questioned whether the law would apply to rezonings completed before July 1, or only applied to future applications. The resolution as presented defines the action as not retroactive and should include only

OPINION | The Local Views From the editor

Making a difference in our community Had the pleasure of spending Wednesday evening with the Rotary Club of Mechanicsville as new officers were sworn in and two members were recognized as Rotarians of the Year. Rather than a single Rotarian of the Year, outgoing president Brenda Cowlbeck announced that the contributions of Harold Padgett and Everett Alexander merited both receiving the honor. Congratulations to both on this obviously much deserved acknowledgement. As she prepares to wrap up her presidency, Cowlbeck reviewed a significant list of accomplishments, including: ✓ Partnering with the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office to provide Thanksgiving baskets to senior citizens. ✓ Raising $38,000 for Hanover Safe Place. ✓ Starting the Rotary Foundation. ✓ Packaging more than 50,000 meals for Stop Hunger Now. ✓ Donating $1,000 to Relay for Life. ✓ Partnering with the Mechanicsville Ruritan Club in presenting the Mechanicsville Christmas Parade. It was impressive to hear about so many worthwhile projects and the Rotary’s role. This is a shining example of giving back to the community — and we should thank our civic organizations for the difference they make. For more on the Rotary, see Community, page 9.

Be mindful of speed limit I live on Rutlandshire Drive where the speed limit is posted at 25 mph, not 35, not 45, or even 55. I understand it’s used as a cut-through, but it would be nice for people to at least respect those who reside on the street and maintain a safe 25 mph. I invite all Hanover County police officers who are looking for a few good tickets to sit on the street anytime throughout the day. You won’t have to sit long, I promise you! Oh, and for those that don’t know what the big red octagon means at the end of the street, it’s a STOP sign, not a slow down and turn sign. Kevin Patterson Mechanicsville

Each year’s political scandal gets out done by another. So many scandals have occurred, the public has grown apathetic to the escalation in depravity, which has been tremendously detrimental! I was driving home, listening to WRVA’s Doc Thompson Show and heard the announcement that Mechanicsville had a T.E.A. Party meeting that night. I made a point to make this meeting; it was in reasonable driving distance and was willing to listen to what this group had to say. This happenstance has allowed me to meet some of the most kind, open and informed citizens that are Republicans, Democrats, Independents and even political atheists. The meetings have been educational, relevant and strategic relating to making a difference with our politicians. There are a lot of people out there allowing Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann and other left-biased media outlets to form their opinions, which is a real shame. I prefer to think for myself and form my own opinions about important matters instead of allowing fools and uniformed (but well-meaning) friends to influence my decisions. And for that, I have been discriminated against, cursed at, slandered and threatened (while driving down Mechanicsville Turnpike by a car full of high schoolers) because I believe in liberty, self-determination, freedom and abhor tyranny, socialism/communism and injustice! It’s ironic that -- in the very county and town Patrick Henry lived -- this type of behavior is being openly exhibited fostered by ignorance and fear! Now is the time for everyone to do a gut-check. This state and county were critical in forming the foundation of this wonderful and great nation. Thomas Jefferson and the 55 signers of the Declaration didn’t stay home to avoid

doing the right thing because it was too hot or it was rainy or they didn’t feel good or were too busy. How can the unimaginable losses of these great men have they been so easily forgotten or avoided in the classrooms? Are you going to be “the” generation that will be remembered as the ones who did nothing and allowed freedom and liberty to die? The time has come for you to make a critical decision. What are you willing to be responsible for? Gina Jernigan Mechanicsville

VBS and Red Cross are not affiliated Thank you for recently highlighting Virginia Blood Services’ (VBS) new program: Bloodlifeline.com. I wanted to clarify that VBS is not affiliated with the Red Cross, nor were they any part in the creation and implementation of the Blood Lifeline program, as they were mentioned and linked in the story. VBS is the sole provider of blood to 22 hospitals throughout Central Virginia -- 12 of which are right here in Richmond such as VCU Medical Center and Memorial Regional Medical Center. VBS has four donor centers in the Richmond area: Innsbrook, Arboretum, Chester, and Emerywood Parkway. There are also over 20 blood collection teams that are out in our community recruiting blood donors seven days a week. While the Red Cross does have a chapter in Richmond, their purpose is emergency preparedness. That chapter does not collect blood. Thank you for keeping the Mechanicsville community informed.

To accomplish this feat, while also raising six children, Elsie also raised and sold turkeys throughout the neighborhood.

garden from which she canned jars and jars of good tasting food. Her children remember her sewing machine always humming as she created frocks form feed sacks and quilts for each family of Woodburns. She really knew how to make something out of nothing, I believe. She was truly a marvel; a wonderful thing was, she had such a wonderful philosophy of life that stood her well in good times and bad. She once advised me to “spit in my hand and grab a fresh hold”. Often she warned us that if we had stayed home and minded our own business we would have not entered into such rough times. She was right. To Elsie most of the world was “out yonder”. She had created a wonderful oasis on her farm from which she and Wilmer did not often have to venture forth. The fish man and other salesmen came to her door to sell their wares. Wilmer and Elsie had only to drive occasionally

to town to purchase ice (before refrigerators were invented), to the feed store, and sometimes out to buy a few purchases at the grocers or to a small local clothing establishment. Seldom did she have need for a doctor as her Vick’s salve worked wonders for everything, (even for a sick chicken). The doctor came to her home to deliver the first five of her children. She gave Geritol to their old old dog and he got up and walked a mile. It seemed as if she always had a box of young chickens in her kitchen warmed by a wood stove or she was ordering some new ones. She loved her chickens and guinea hens. Once we gave her a few Aracauna types of chicken and she proudly won blue ribbons at the county fair with their green and blue eggs. On another occasion we gave her a pair of peacocks and for years she enjoyed raising those beautiful birds. At night they would nest in her tall trees and scream like banshees. Their screams did not bother her. Elsie was a wonderful cook; her specialty was a

July 12-16

marvelous stuffed Maryland ham to die for. I worked with her once and got to write down what she did to make this specialty. She used real cups and spoons to measure (she had no need of store bought things if she could improvise). Only special people were allowed a small glass of her specially brewed dandelion wine (it had a real kick to it). She kept the recipe secret (on the back of a picture on the wall) for years. At the holidays she brewed root beer that made one’s mouth tingle. In the later years of her long life, she had to go and live in the St. Mary’s Nursing Center. Here, her unique persona captivated the staff and residents alike. The staff was wonderful to Granny at that caring facility in Maryland. Our family will always owe them a debt of gratitude for seeing that our Mama, our Granny, had the best life possible under those confined circumstances for almost eight long years. In her later years Granny Woodburn’s goodness shone through her wrinkled 105 year old face until her quiet death of old age. All of her family,

and we are also certain that all who knew her, will keep a special place for Mama’s memory in their hearts. At her funeral, grown men came up to say Granny had given them quarters for little jobs when they were young and lived across from her farm. She also gave food to many we were told. We, her family, are so very blessed to have enjoyed her generous and wise presence for so very long. She surely set us all an example of an industrious, honest life, selflessly lived caring for family and others. We know she is now in the presence of God. The family received friends on June 10, 2010 in the Mattingly-Gardiner Funeral Home Chapel, Leonardtown, Md. A Mass of Christian Burial was held on Friday, June 11, 2010 at St. Aloysius Catholic Church with Fr. John Dakes officiating. Graveside services were held in the church cemetery. Pallbearers were some of Elsie’s many grandsons: Buddy White, Joe White, Bill Wood, Donny Abell, Patrick Woodburn and David Woodburn (of Richmond).

The reality of Majdanek, she added, was the fact that “it could be up and running again in 48 hours.” Getting accepted into the program, Rebeccah said, starts with letters of recommendation. She wrote a personal essay about what she thought she would bring back to the community. The opportunity, she added, is “very special because y o u r te enage years are where you figure out where you are a n d g r o w .” Photo submitted by Rebeccah Bassell She said This is an oven Rebeccah Bassell saw inside the creamatorium at the jourMajdanek in Lublin, Poland. ney was “ t h i s huge event to go through and learning experience. It makes a big impact on you, especially at this age.” She describes herself as “a very emotional person. I felt I could be very beneficial to my community and tell them what I saw.” Rebeccah, who learned about the trip in July and was selected in late fall, was the only teen from Virginia. Preparation also included several books about the Holocaust. “They expect you to be well educated. They want you to know the historical significance of it.” On a personal note, Rebeccah said “it was more of a humanitarian trip. I didn’t just look at it as why would people do this to other people?” She said she was “fuming mad” after she came out of the gas chamber. “Why would people allow this to happen? When do you stop doing good and just give in to blind evil? I was flabbergasted when I came out of there – and I still am.” Rebeccah called her mother Sharon “and I was very insistent -- this shouldn’t be allowed to happen again not just to Jews, people in general. Why isn’t anybody doing anything about Darfur or Uganda? Or just conflict in general.” She said the experience left her wanting “to learn more about this when I get home.” It also has stirred a desire to “be active in something. I was so mad – this should not be happening. I want to start a club and inform people about

all these different problems going on in the world. Educate and tell people what I’ve seen. If they do something about it, then I’ve done my job.” Emotions, she said, spanned two ranges: “You were either incredibly angry or upset. Everyone who came out felt pretty much the same.” Visits were not the only purpose to the trip. The group was responsible for community service projects, including a cemetery in Warsaw, Poland. “It’s buried in like leaves and old trees,” Rebeccah said. “We did mitzvah (a good deed). We cleaned off the graves so people could read them.” As they picked up dead trees off the graves, they said, “That person won’t be forgotten.’ The project in Warsaw “was remembering people. We decided to help others remember the people.” Rebeccah said “there’s nothing left” of the Warsaw Ghetto. “It was completely demolished, Photo submitted by Rebeccah Bassell f l a t t e n e d .” These are the train tracks She did say through Birkenau. The “a bunch of signs were put there by the memorials are marchers for “The March of around the The Living” ceremony. area.” While in Poland, the annual March of the Living was observed on April 12. The turnout, Rebeccah said, “was crazy how many people came together.” Gathering in sections at Auschwitz, the crowd “goes silent – you could hear a pin drop” when the shofar signified the Jewish New Year. The point of the march, which brought together 10,000 people from 40 countries, “was to take the whole March of the Dead sort of walk. It takes place on Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom Hashoah) and is commemorated throughout the Jewish world as a solemn day of mournsee VISITS, pg. 15 `

ing and remembrance for the 6 million Jewish men, women and children who were murdered by the Nazis during the Shoah (Holocaust).” Rebeccah said she did not view the experience “as a religious thing.” She said she held tight to her role as an American. Arriving in Israel, Rebeccah said, was met with excitement “the minute we touched down.” They had left rainy, cold weather in Poland to land in a nation she had been taught was “the best place in the world.” Although she had been taught from an early age that Israel is the Holy Land for the Jews, she said she didn’t have a personal connection. That changed when she “stepped outside and, for me, the air smelled cleaner. There were fresh flowers and trees. The airport was so beautiful and people were smiling and waving to us.” “Welcome to Israel” took on a special meaning when members of the group told those gathered at the airport that they were Jewish. The next words were “Welcome home.” As a Jew, Rebeccah has dual citizenship in Israel. A high point while in Jerusalem was a visit to what Rebeccah called “the coolest retirement home in the world.” Through the guidance of Yad LaKashish, a nonprofit organization, elderly and disabled residents have the opportunity to remain active. “They love seeing all the teenagers come in and talking with them.” Of special significance was a visit to the Western Wall, where, Rebeccah said, “I put in my own wish. You’re told that stuff as a kid from a textbook. To go there, it didn’t feel like it was real.” The open food market in Jerusalem was “really awesome,” with “vendors shouting prices at you. It was like a cultural shock, but fun.” They also went to Tel Aviv,

which she said was mostly industrial. “It’s big like San Francisco, New Yorkish, cosmopolitan.” Sharon said her daughter came back from Poland and Israel “such a different kid.” She and her husband Don had exposed Rebeccah to the Holocaust through visits to the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C., as well as the Virginia Holocaust Museum in Richmond. To prepare for the trip, Sharon said, “These kids had homework before they went.” Rebeccah also experienced a high point in any teenager’s life: She celebrated her 16th birthday on Israeli Independence Day. “It was the best day ever” to mark such a milestone there. She attends Temple Beth Ahabah in Richmond, where she serves as treasurer of her

Chalkley summaries laws that go into effect Thursday On Thursday, several new laws will take effect in Virginia. Hanover County Commonwealth’s Attorney R.E. “Trip” Chalkley III said the General Assembly passed “limited legislation affecting criminal law or criminal procedure in the Commonwealth.” He said the action stemmed, “most likely, due to budget constraints.” He highlights certain laws that he said affect the citizenry and is not all inclusive. According to Chalkley, vehicle impoundment is now authorized when an individual is charged with driving on a suspended license when the suspension is based upon a DUI conviction or DUI related crime. “If convicted,” he said, “the vehicle may be impounded or immobilized for an additional 90 days by the trial court. Any suspension of the privilege to operate will now run consecutive with any other court ordered suspension for driving while intoxicated or for operating after illegally consuming alcohol.” Also, amendments to the State Code will now permit an officer to arrest for misdemeanor DUI and “drunk boating” offenses not committed in the officer’s presence. “Any person who possesses or consumes alcoholic beverage while operating a school bus transporting children will be guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor (up to 12 months in jail and/or a fine of up to $2,500),” Chalkley said. “Several amendments were passed to existing statutes which simplify the process whereby electronic data, electronic communications and subscriber data are made available to law enforcement, pursuant to search warrants or court orders,” he said. The new law also provides that upon authentication, such records become admis-

sible in evidence as a business records exception to the hearsay rule. The records of providers of electronic communications services or remote computing services must now be disclosed pursuant to court order, for use in the investigation of a missing child, senior adult or incapacitated person. Any person filing a petition to restore the right to possess or carry a firearm must now serve a copy on the Commonwealth’s Attorney who shall have the right to respond and represent the commonwealth at a hearing. If requesting by either party, a hearing shall be held by Starting July 1, a person with a concealed weapon permit is allowed to carry a concealed weapon onto the premises of a restaurant or club but such person may not consume alcohol while on the premises.

the court. Chalkley said this has been practice in Hanover for some time. Starting tomorrow, a person with a concealed weapon permit is allowed to carry a concealed weapon onto the premises of a restaurant or club but such person may not consume alcohol while on the premises. One who consumes alcohol in violation of the statute is guilty of a Class 2 misdemeanor (up to six months in jail and/or up to a $1,000 fine). A child who has lost driving privileges due to certain offenses, including alcohol, firearm and truancy violations, will no longer be eligible for a restricted license to travel to and from home and school when school provided transportation is available.

Juveniles may be detained in a secure facility until final disposition if charged with possessing or transporting a handgun or assault weapon. Chalkley said current law permitted such detention only when the juvenile was charged with an offense that would be a crime if the child were an adult. Fire marshals, deputy and assistant fire marshals with law enforcement powers were added to the capital murder statute so that the death penalty may be imposed for their murder when such killing is for the purpose of interfering with the performance of their official duties. The same protection was afforded to auxiliary police officers and auxiliary deputy sheriffs, the Commonwealth’s Attorney added. Also in the area of death penalty legislation, it will now be required that the defense give 60 days notice to the Commonwealth’s Attorney of the intent the present expert witness testimony to support a claim in mitigation. Previously only 21 days notice was required by statute. “Indigent capital murder defendants will be entitled to an ex parte (only the defense present) hearing for the appointment of experts to assist in the defense,” Chalkley said. “The ex parte hearing will be heard by a judge in the circuit not presiding over the actual trial. Before the ex parte proceeding, a particularized need must be shown in a hearing with the Commonwealth’s Attorney present.” A new statute was enacted that says for the purposes of homicide the fact that the umbilical cord has not been cut or that the placenta remains attached shall not be considered in determining whether a human infant has achieved

an independent and separate existence. A person who attempts to escape or elude a law enforcement officer, one given a signal to stop a motor vehicle is guilty of a class 2 misdemeanor, whether the attempt is on foot, in the vehicle or by any other means. Chalkley said this is an increase in possible punishment. Animal cruelty for a second or subsequent violation of animal care laws regarding the owner’s failure to provide adequate food, water, shelter or veterinary care had the penalty increased from a Class 4 misdemeanor (fine of up to $250.00)

to a Class 2 misdemeanor. A second or subsequent violation of failure to provide adequate space, exercise and care, treatment and transportation had the penalty increased from a Class 4 misdemeanor to a Class 3 misdemeanor (up to $500 fine). The civil penalty for failure to sterilize a dog or cat adopted from a releasing agency was increased from $50 to $250. In response to the MelendezDiaz decision by the Supreme Court of the United States, several amendments were passed. That decision, most simply, required that an analyst appear in court to testify to the results of any analysis or test performed. Prior to the decision, the prosecution only needed to

Amendments were made to certain legislation that removed burdensome and costly obligations to the Commonwealth from proposed legislation.

The amendments provide that at a preliminary hearing, any certificates of analysis or reports are admissible without appearance of the preparer. If the defendant demands the preparer appear, Chalkley said $50 in court costs are added upon conviction to be paid by the defendant.

To the delight of the audience, a couple of the Tiny Miss contestants responded sincerely with “Mommy and Daddy” when asked the names of their parents. With both age groups, Barbie seemed to take the top spot when it comes to toys. With food, chicken, pizza and pasta topped the girls’ favorites. Swimming, camping and gymnastics were among the responses to activities. Many of the girls enjoy trips to the pool and the beach.

Laws regarding fireworks must be obeyed The Fourth of July is fast approaching and with it comes celebrations, festive times and fireworks. Hanover County Fire-EMS wants to be sure that citizens are aware of the laws regulating fireworks and their proper use. In Virginia, it is illegal to sell, buy, use, ignite or explode firecrackers, skyrockets or similar things that contain any explosives or inflammable compound or substances that explode, rise into the air or travel laterally or fire projectiles into the air. The only fireworks legally allowed to be sold or used in Virginia are sparklers, fountains, Pharaoh’s serpents, caps

Flournoy, Hanover County chief fire marshal, said. “Instead of handling these fireworks yourselves, it is much safer to visit the many fireworks displays available throughout Hanover County and the region. Let the professionals handle it and keep your family safe.” If you have questions concerning fireworks, call the Fire Marshal’s Office at 365-6195.

Hanover County Fire/EMS will receive a 2010 National Association of Counties’ (NACo) Achievement Award for a program which has improved response times for EMS calls by more than 8 percent. The same program also was named “Best in Category” by the national association, which represents more than 3,000 counties. The program enables Hanover’s EMS paramedics to reach stricken patients more quickly by using well-deployed Quick Response Vehicles (QRV). Changes in how QRV and other EMS units are deployed have increased efficiency without additional personnel or funding. Working with the Department of Emergency Communications and the Statistical Sciences Department at Virginia Commonwealth University, Fire/EMS analyzed several years of historical call data and used those results to redeploy units. Units are now deployed based on the call history for each area of the county for every hour of the day. The county’s computer-aided dispatch (CAD) system was overhauled to reflect the new information and protocols. All personnel in both Fire/EMS and Communications were retrained on the new protocols and system. A “tiered” model for delivering services was created, with the needs of the patient determining how resources are dispatched. Advanced Life Support (ALS) providers respond to calls in “Quick Response Vehicles,” which are set aside for ALS calls. The QRV vehicles carry ALS equipment such as cardiac monitors, special medical

kits and boxes that contain the various medical drugs which trained providers may need to help the patient. When the transport ambulance arrives, the ALS provider then rides with the patient to the hospital. Rebuilding the CAD system alone was a six-week effort that involved a team of Fire/ EMS field representatives and members of Emergency Communications. District lines were adjusted and future growth was accommodated. All members of both departments received training on the new system and each dispatcher received training on new dispatch protocols. “This program is really the result of a lot of hard work on the part of a lot of people,” Hanover Fire/EMS chief Fred Crosby said. “We did not purchase any new equipment, hire any personnel or contract any services. We formed partnerships, conducted research and developed a response to the findings. Developing these key partnerships was essential to managing the costs and ensuring a successful program, and we’ve been very pleased with the results that we have been able to deliver to the public.” In all three categories of EMS calls – Priority 1, 2 and 3 – response times have improved by a range of 8.24 percent to 9.68 percent since the program was implemented last year. “Chief Crosby and his team have shown great initiative and creativity in developing and implementing this quick response program,” Jim Taylor, assistant county administrator, said. “The idea of having roaming

responders in a car has shown that it can really make a difference to those in need as arriving even one minute earlier than the ambulance or fire crew can help to save someone’s life. Residents and visitors to our county are indebted to the sophisticated research of our staff and Dr. Laura McLay at VCU.” Dr. McLay partnered with Hanover County to analyze the call data and determine the most optimal deployment of available resources. Development of a Quick Response Program was a Fiscal Year 2010 Initiative of the Hanover County Board of Supervisors. The award-winning entry to NACo was entitled “Next-Generation Emergency Medical Response through Data Analysis & Planning.” NACo’s Achievement Awards recognize counties for “creative and innovative program development and implementation, efficient administrative management of county agencies and responsible government to local citizens.” NACo is the only national organization that represents county governments in the United States. After reviewing all the applications in a category, the judges may pick one or two innovative programs that stood out from the rest. Best of Category awards may not be awarded in all categories. These programs are awarded a Best of Category Award in addition to an Achievement Award. Information supplied by Tom Harris, Hanover County public information officer.

Sklar thanks businesses for help with ASK event Sounds of laughter and words of appreciation filled the air at the Stonehenge Country Club on May 23, as Sklar Technology Partners showed its appreciation to local businesses for their participation in a donation drive to benefit ASK (Association for the Support of Kids With Cancer) Foundation. ASK is a nonprofit organization that lovingly labors to make the life of a child diagnosed with cancer, and their family, less traumatic. While children played on a moon bounce, ate popcorn,

Aloha

workied on spin art, and got their faces painted, Sklar recognized the contributors that represented small businesses in the Richmond area that wanted to make a difference in their community. Even though they struggle to survive in today’s economy, these businesses wanted to do their part in the fight against cancer. Sklar asked them to consider making a donation which, when put together with other contributions from smaller firms, would result in a large endowment for the ASK Foundation. Led by president Randy Sklar, some Sklar Technology Partners employees agreed

to run in the Shamrock Marathon in exchange for promised monetary rewards, which would then be given to this charity. When asked why he joined the effort, Brett Atwood, president of Atwood Printing, said, “Sklar Technology has always been a good steward of the community. We knew we could get behind them and this effort as we trust their character implicitly.” With Sklar’s guidance, donations amounted to $10,550 — and the opportunity for small businesses to make a difference despite the current financial environment.

Curtain is at 7:30 p.m. For reservations, or more information, call 512-6291. Parking is across the street from the theater venue.

Set in Maynard, Texas, in the 1970s, Roy Caulder, the wild boy of the town, has been back from Vietnam for two years and finds it difficult to get anything started. He and brother Ray examine life in the back, outside of Angel’s Bar one night. Elizabeth has struggles of her own, examined by best friend Hattie on the back porch during a hot, hot day where the women exchange memories and more folding laundry and drinking.

When Cletis Fullernoy and wife Amy appear in their respective shows, things get complicated. This comedy will keep you laughing, and thinking, but note that the show contains language unsuitable for children. Admission prices are $10 and $8 for seniors (62 and over).

EDUCATION | School Board, Student News & Announcements

Local girl to compete for Miss Teen Richmond Title Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com Ashley Campbell of Mechanicsville was recently selected to participate in Nationals’ 2010 Miss Teen Richmond pageant competition that will take place on July 11, 2010. Ashley learned of her acceptance into this year’s competition as Nationals, Inc. announced their selections. Ashley submitted an application and took part in an interview session that was conducted by this year’s Richmond Pageant Coordinator.

Ashley will be competing, for her share of thousands of dollars in prizes and specialty gifts that will be distributed to contestants. Ashley will be competing in the Miss Teen division, one of four divisions that will have young ladies between the ages of 7 and 19 competing in modeling routines which include casual wear and formal wear. Most important, Ashley will display her personality and interviewing skills while interviewing with this year’s Richmond judging panel. Personality is the number one aspect that

each contestant is judged on during all phases of competition. If Ashley were to win the title of Miss Teen Richmond, she would represent Richmond and the surrounding communities at the Cities of America National Competition that will take place in Orlando, Fla. Over $60,000.00 in prizes and awards will be presented at the National Competition while each winner enjoys their expense paid trip of five nights and six days in Orlando. There is no cost to

Ashley for participating in the pageant competition. Community businesses, organizations, and private individuals will assist Ashley in participating in this year’s competition by becoming an official sponsor to her. Through sponsorship, each contestant receives all the necessary training, rehearsals, and financial support. Any business, organization or private individual who may be interested in becoming a sponsor to Ashley may contact her Richmond pageant coordinator at 1-800-569-2487.

Legion Post 175 off to frustrating start at 1-7

By Jim Ridolphi Special Correspondent A little more than two weeks into the 2010 American Legion baseball schedule, Mechanicsville Post 175 coach Eddie Gates is scratching his head. The team has started off the season with a 1-7 record but in this case the numbers definitely don’t tell the entire story. After recording 15 hits against Powhatan Post 201 on Saturday night, the team dropped an 11-8 decision. Mechanicsville failed to produce runs with men in scoring position in several innings; an occurrence that is the source of a constant headache for Gates. “It’s the same story,” Gates said. “We just can’t get those timely hits when we need them. One hit at several points in this game could have made the difference between a win and a loss.” It’s been a recurring theme in Post 175’s current campaign. “We could have won four of

38

those lost games with one key hit, but we just couldn’t get it when we needed it,” he said. Post 175 starter Ryan Bettinger pitched six good innings, and left the game with the score knotted at four. “I think our pitching has been good,” Gates said. “Ryan had a good outing today.” On the other side of the coin, Powhatan Post 201, seems to have righted its ship, and Coach Moody felt the performance against Mechanicsville was a good win, with a caveat. “We’ve got to play better defense,” he said. “When we make an error, we’ve got to get out of innings without giving up runs. We won’t be able to count on scoring 11 runs in every game we play.” Powhatan scored a run in the home half of the first inning, when Jacob Bowlin scored after working his way to third base. But Bettinger pitched his way out of a bases loaded jam to end the inning.

Post 175 answered in the second inning when Greg Frame singled in Hank Parsley, and Bryan Johansen scored on a wild pitch by Post 201 starter Dustin Crone. Powhatan leveled the score with a single run in the third inning when Cole Phillips worked his way around the bases and scored on wild pitch. In the bottom of the fourth, Powhatan captured a 3-2 lead

when Doug Jamerson scored on a long sacrifice. In the bottom of the fifth, 201 second baseman Hagy Boonewell got his first of three RBIs when he singled in catcher Zach Lucas. Post 175 answered in the top of the sixth, plating two runs and tying the score at four, but Powhatan came back with three runs in the bottom half of the inning, and added two more

in the eighth on RBIs from Boonewell, securing their third win of the season. Mechanicsville was still swinging the bat in the ninth, adding two more and coming within three at 11-8. “This team doesn’t quit,” Gates said. “They never gave up and kept trying to come back until the last out,” he added. Moody said his team carried out a clear cut plan in the

victory. “We played small ball today and came out with much more intensity than we’ve had,” he said. “We didn’t use up a bunch of our pitchers today and that’s our plan which is not to overuse any of our pitchers.” Moody has his pitching staff on a strict 80-pitch maximum in an attempt to keep his arms ready for late season play. see LEGION, pg. 39 `


Congratulations Hawks

The Hometown Hawks closed out there 2010 season by winning two state titles. The first was the Nations 10U State tournament played Memorial Day weekend at Prince George County sports complex. The Hawks swept the weekend by going 4-0 to take the title. The second was the USSSA 10U State tournament played right here in Richmond at Dorey Park. Some of the best teams from around the state played. The Hawks went 6-0 over

the June 5-6 weekend and had to come from behind in extra innings of the play-in game to get into the championship game. In the championship game the Hawks jumped out to a 6-0 lead against the Drillers and never looked back as they won 6-2 to repeat as USSSA Sate Champions. The Hometown Hawks 10U team is currently ranked #1 in the state of Virginia for both Nations Baseball and USSSA Baseball. Submitted by Mike Goleski

“We’re bringing them along at a comfortable pace and developing all of our pitching staff,” Moody said. The coach said he’s seen his team mature greatly in a short period of time. “When we first started it seems like it was all me, me, me, but now we’re thinking as a team.” On Sunday afternoon, Post 175 was shut out by Midlothian Post 186, 10-0.

Happy 9th Birthday Kayleigh “Rosebud”

BRUCE WAYNE FLIPPEN August 9, 1959 - June 29,1980 “Forever in Our Hearts” God looked around His Garden and found an empty place. He then looked down upon His earth and saw your loving face. He saw your path was difficult and closed your weary eyes, He whispered to you “Peace be Thine” and gave you wings to fly. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone. For part of us went with you on the day God called you home.

Love and miss you “Bruce” Mama and Daddy Cathy and Michael
