Tomato order placed; festival day nears By Melody Kinser mkinser@mechlocal.com Like clockwork, Oscar Watson gets his order in early — and it’s usually 200 bushels of the fruit for which the Hanover Tomato Festival is named. Since the Black Creek Volunteer Fire Department started the festival in 1978, Watson has bought tomatoes from Robby Dodd of Dodd’s Acres Farm in Black Creek. Watson, who serves as president of the Tomato Festival Committee, will coordinate with Dodd to receive the tomatoes at 6 a.m. Saturday, three hours before the festival officially opens at Pole Green Park at 8996 Pole Green Park Lane in Mechanicsville. “He has furnished all my tomatoes — from

day one,” Watson said of Dodd, whose farm is located on Market Road. Before the start of the Little Miss and Tiny Miss Tomato Festival Pageant on June 25, Watson talked about his involvement with the Tomato Festival and how he works year-round in preparation for the next. It has been his routine since the Black Creek VFD first played host on the station’s grounds 33 years ago. The cost of the tomatoes, which are sold under a tent in the center of the park’s grounds, typically cost $15,000. According to Watson, the department may make anywhere from $400 to $500. The festival is their primary fundraiser and monies are used for costs associated with operat-

ing the VFD. Festival-goers will see some improvements at the park this year. Marcy Durrer, recreational program director for the Hanover County Parks and Recreation Department, said new lights have been installed and the field has been upgraded. Improvements also have been made in electric service capabilities. “As part of our bond referen-

dum projects, we have recently completed the addition of field lighting on our soccer pads, which serve as the event vendor space for the Tomato Festival,” Durrer said. “Essentially, what that has allowed us to do is adjust and improve the event layout to provide additional electrical opportunities to the vendors and spread out the food court along the edge of the football field to provide additional space and additional seated eating areas.” She said the improvements

have allowed for a change in layout, with the food court being moved to run the length of the football field. She also said there will be an additional section that will parallel the exiting lane of traffic. As usual, the entertainment area will be located under a large tent. This year, however, it will be found next to the concession building, where the food court used to be. “Entertainment parking will be located adjacent to the entertainment stage,” Durrer added. The children’s area, Durrer said, also will feature a new

layout. “Community partners will be providing free children’s activities in conjunction with rides, inflatables and a demonstration area and some handson activities for children with the Virginia Farm Bureau.” She said the children’s area will be laid out like the rest of the event. “We have face painters, carnival games, and spinwheels for prizes.” A tasty treat for the youngsters this year will be the addition of them showing their skills at making salsa. “The kids are actually going to get to [make salsa] with the assistance of the

vendor who’s doing this.” She said the kids will be assisted in cutting up the tomatoes. They will have access to all the ingredients and join in mixing the salsa. Children also will be able to take part in crafts. For the younger ones, a toddler play area will be available. The Tomato Contest is putting salsa in the limelight, with Marty’s Grill and Riverbound Cafe including the winner on their menus in August. “It may either be winning salsa or winning recipe,” Durrer said. Michael Cohan is the owner of

both Mechanicsville-area restaurants. Durrer is excited about this year’s Tomato Contest, pointing out there are “fabulous new categories,” including largest ripe tomato, smallest ripe tomato, ugliest tomato “and we also have a new category for best tomato cluster.” “Then,” she continued, “the other new thing with the Tomato Contest is that folks can enter one tomato in multiple categories. So, for instance, say you have a really, really ugly

everything, and I can be anywhere I want to be in about 20 minutes.” While the Los Angeles area is famous for some of its beaches, Matzganis said he has only been twice. “I’ve been to the beach two times since moving to California,” he said. “One of them was when we were shooting a commercial, so I can’t tell you much about them. We put in some pretty long days, so

when I’m off I usually just hang around the apartment and rest.” Matzganis is trying to diversify his resume for Hollywood agents. He’s done some modeling, and in addition to producing short films, has had parts in several of them. “I’ve been acting for years,” he said. “I’m not afraid of performing in front of a camera.” He said he has no timetable for how long he will continue to pursue his dreams in

California. “Like I’ve already said, right now, things are going alright,” he said. “For now, California is home. We’re paying the bills and having a good time. We’d like to grow the company, and I’d like to expand my career. This area is where it’s at if you want a career in film -- whether you are in front of the camera or behind it.

representing the 97th District. He won a special election to the Senate in January 2006, filling a vacancy created by the election of Lt. Gov. William T. “Bill” Bolling. McDougle’s record of successfully shepherding legislation to reduce waste, curb spending, and increase the efficiency of government was recognized by Gov. McDonnell, who tapped the senator to be one of a handful of legislators to serve on the Commission on Government Reform and Restructuring. McDougle also has championed legislation to improve public safety, sponsoring and winning passage for a bill requiring those arrested for violent felonies to provide a DNA sample. The measure has resulted in thousands of crimes being solved by Virginia’s law enforcement professionals. A consistent supporter of tax relief, McDougle won passage of Virginia’s Back to School Sales Tax Holiday law in 2006. The measure continues to provide needed

tax relief to families as they prepare to send students back to school every fall. This year, the holiday will be held Aug. 5 -7. “First in the House and now in the Senate, I have served my constituents with principled conservative leadership, working with citizens, businesses and community leaders to achieve solutions to our challenges,” McDougle said. “Together, we are making a difference.” “As the Senate Republican Leader Pro Tempore, I have worked tirelessly to unify our caucus and focus our legislative efforts on a commonsense conservative agenda in the General Assembly. Our Caucus agenda this year included measures to increase transparency and strengthen accountability in Virginia’s budget process, to oppose tax increases, to combat illegal immigration, to reduce unnecessary state regulations and boards, and to protect Virginia’s status as a Right-to-Work state,” he added. “I have consistently supported measures that ensure fiscal responsibility without requiring tax increases. Government must live within its means, and provide taxpay-

I remain committed to providing the entire district the same level of service citizens deserve and expect.” McDougle is the Senate Republican Pro Tempore and a member of the Senate Committees on Agriculture, Conservation and Natural Resources, Courts of Justice, Rehabilitation and Social Services, and Transportation. Under the redistricting plan approved by the Virginia Senate, the 4th District is comprised of Caroline, Essex, Lancaster, Middlesex, Northumberland and Richmond counties and portions of Hanover, King George, Spotsylvania, and Westmoreland counties.

OPINION | The Local Views From the editor

The big day is just around the corner The countdown is on — the 2011 Hanover Tomato Festival will open at 9 a.m. on Saturday at Pole Green Park. And, just as has been the case since the Black Creek Volunteer Fire Department organized the first festival in 1978, this year’s event is expected to be a success, with a variety of vendors and participants filling the park at 8996 Pole Green Park Lane in Mechanicsville. Had the opportunity to enjoy the comments of the Little Miss and Tiny Miss Tomato Festival Pageant contestants on June 25 (more on them can be found on page 7). This serves as the official kickoff of “the event” in Mechanicsville. By the way, the winners will be announced at 11 a.m. at the center stage area. Two years ago, attendance broke records with 42,000 people coming out to celebrate the Hanover tomato and take part in the many activities, as well as support local businesses, as well as those who bring their wares into our community. Thanks to the efforts of the Black Creek VFD, Hanover Parks & Rec, The Herald Progress and The Mechanicsville Local, the Tomato Festival is a don’t-miss event. This is Mechanicsville’s day to shine — and even when the weather doesn’t cooperate (like last year), a good time will still be had by all. See you on Saturday.

The meeting room of the former location of the Black Creek Volunteer Fire Department was filled with family members and well-wishers for the contestants participating in the Little Miss and Tiny Miss Tomato Festival Pageant on June 25.

Festival pageant contestants share favorites, summer plans By Melody Kinser mkinser@mechlocal.com Who will they be? Ranging in age from 3 to 7, the little girls vying for the titles of Tiny Miss and Little Miss Hanover Tomato Festival will learn on Saturday who will capture the crowns. Contestants are scheduled to gather at 11 a.m. in the stage area of the 2011 Hanover Tomato Festival at Pole Green Park at 8996 Pole Green Park Lane in Mechanicsville. On June 25, the day of the pageant, director Lynn Watson said the contestants need to arrive by 10:30 a.m.

Even though the Black Creek Volunteer Fire Department has a new station, the pageant was held at the old location on McClelland Road in Mechanicsville. Mary Catherine Piland serves as assistant director, and the judges were John Fibbiani, Sandy Watson and Stacey Duke. As director, Lynn Watson questioned the contestants about their favorite toy and food, as well as what they plan to do during the summer months. Tiny Miss contestants and their responses are: McKenna Dawn Anderson, 3, who paused when asked

about her favorite toy, prompting Watson to pose the question, “Who is that lady that sleeps a lot?” Without hesitation, McKenna responded, “Mommy.” Watson then asked, “How about Sleeping Beauty?” McKenna said she likes to ride horses and, what became a common theme throughout the afternoon, said noodles, especially macaroni and cheese see PAGEANT, pg. 13

Their duties include helping stranded motorists, conducting traffic direction, assisting with traffic hazards, and providing guidance and assistance to travelers. Those participating in the Motorist Assistance Patrol have graduated from the Sheriff ’s Office Citizens Police Academy and have completed additional training in basic first aid, traffic direction, radio communications and safety procedures. “The Sheriff ’s Office is

very fortunate that among the over 550-plus graduates of the Citizens Police Academy, many have decided to stay on and actively contribute to the operations of the Sheriff ’s Office and provide a valuable service to our citizens. This award is a testament to their dedication to the citizens of Hanover County. We are indebted to them for their service to the Sheriff ’s Office and proud of their effort to ensure our County remains a great place to live,” said Col. David R. Hines, sheriff. This is the second NACo

award received by the Sheriff ’s Office. In 2007, NACo recognized the Sheriff ’s Office for its Crime Management Initiative, a program that continues to aid in the identification of crimes trends and proper deployment of personnel.

“Peel Off Unwanted Fat, And Increase Your Energy, While Building Firm Muscle—Without Dieting!”

BEFORE

AFTER

I

magine discovering a way of losing unwanted fat and doing it almost effortlessly. If you read this article, you’ll find out how you or anyone you know can lose 2 or more pounds a week. That equates into a huge loss of unwanted weight. This is how one woman was able to do just that. These are her before and after photos! “I have struggled with my weight practically all my life and I’ve been on every diet under the sun. I’ve managed to lose a few pounds here and there, but nothing like this. Dr. deBarros’ plan is

all natural and it’s amazing. I have lost 38 pounds in two months and 12 inches off my body. I look and feel better than I have in years and its all thanks to Dr. deBarros and his extremely knowledgeable weight loss team!” -Audrey Dr. deBarros D. C. is looking for at least 100 people in this area who are interested in losing up to 15 pounds or more—over the next 30 days by way of a doctor-monitored Cleansing Program. Dr. deBarros D. C. has helped countless patients to regain their

health and vitality through this unique program. Dr. deBarros, told us, “Your body holds dangerous toxins in your fat tissue as a way of diluting and neutralizing the toxins. This process helps keep toxins away from your vital organs. If you gently REMOVE these toxins with this specific cleansing program, your body will no longer need to STORE the FAT and therefore—you turn your body into a ‘fat burning’ machine and lose weight.” The key to weight loss success is eliminating toxins. When you see how quickly people are able to lose weight, you’ll want to tell all your friends. While there are NO Guarantees that everyone will get the exact same results, the average weight loss according to Dr. deBarros is about 7 pounds per person, per week. If you are interested in making this month’s “Weight Loss Challenge” with Dr. deBarros D. C., you are invited to attend a short explanation on how you can become eligible to participate in our Weight Loss Evaluation. “This program will not only help people lose weight, but also improve their relationships. This is the first product that I whole-heartedly endorse.”

John Gray, Ph.D. Author of “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus.” Dr. deBarros D. C. is located at 7020 Cold Harbor Rd., in Mechanicsville. Dr. deBarros told us it may be hard to find his office the first time, but once you’ve found them, you’ll never forget. The service is outstanding. His office is unique in the fact that it has successfully helped hundreds of patients not only with weight loss, but also their overall health care. Their phone number is 804-730-2609. Call them—anytime. If someone isn’t there, just leave your name and phone number and one of the assistants will call you back—within 24 hours. Dr. deBarros, D.C. has thrown down the gauntlet to the community to “Lose a Ton of Unwanted Weight” as he puts it, in the next 30 days, and get healthier than ever. If you need further information, or have some simple questions about the program, you can go to: www.skinnyup.net “The program wasn’t hard to follow at all and the neat part was—it worked, it worked FAST. Yes, very, very fast. I mean I lost 20 pounds, in just 2 weeks. No diet, no exercising, and no medications.” -Gwen Brown

a courtesy response, either automated, or from an aide with no name. A simple man, with a simple question, looking for a simple answer. Warren S. Jones Mechanicsville

Pride is beautiful Elmer Brown’s letter that was published in the June 15 issue of The Mechanicsville Local was slightly upsetting, but not shocking, seeing as this kind of response is something the LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer) community deals with on a daily basis. As a member of the LGBTQ community, I commend the Federal Reserve for flying our flag to show tolerance, support and acceptance. That being said, I do not believe that choosing love is a sin, nor do I believe that accep-

tance, support or tolerance is a sin. As a matter of fact, I do believe those are all things that Mr. Brown’s God and Savior preach. Are they not? Also, do the Christian teachings not clearly state that everyone is a sinner? All Mr. Brown was doing was pointing his finger at a group of people, because who they love and their way of life does not fit in his comfort zone, and he used his God as an excuse to do so, which, if I may say so myself, is appalling. I do not believe love is evil, nor do I believe it to be a sin. The luxury of this country that created the “beautiful American flag,” as Mr. Brown put it, is that I am free to believe in whatever I want, but here is a fact: Hatred and judgment will always be far more of a choice than homosexuality will ever be. No one would ever choose to be oppressed and silenced by people like Mr. Brown. Flying the beautiful Pride Flag during Pride Month is a beautiful

Miranda Paige Gagnon, 3, like many contestants, is a Barbie fan. She too likes noodles, specifically macaroni and cheese. This summer, she said she will be swimming. To the delight of the audience, Miranda performed “It’s a Small World.” Valerie Nicole Goodman, 4, also said Barbie dolls falls in the favorite toy category. She said her sister lets her play with her Barbie house, which she described as “a tall house.” Dora the Explorer is another interest. With food, she quickly said, “I like to eat ice cream.” This summer she said she will be playing outside. Then, after a moment, she changed her mind, saying, “Stay inside -- it’s hot.” She impressed the crowd by reciting the “Pledge of Allegiance,” which she said she learned in school.

And, even though she was accompanied by her grandmother, she chose not to join Watson for the interview process. Despite Watson’s best attempts, Morgan could not be cajoled to talk. “A big case of stage fright,” Watson said, “but at least she came up here.” Corinne Verlander, 4, enjoys playing with baby dolls and “dresses them up.” “Eggs” was her answer to favorite food. “I like to cut them up and stir them up and put the cheese in.” Her summer plans include swimming at home – “I have a blue pool.” She said she also is “going to play with my mommy and daddy and Collin [her baby brother].

Casey wins top VLGMA award Deputy county administrator recognized by management association Blue Star Football & Cheerleading Still has open registration for 8, 9, 10 & 11 year old football players & for Cheerleaders of all ages. Information can be found at www.leaguelineup.com/bluestarfootball or call Ronni Wiles at (804) 569-1860 or Ed Adelstein at (804) 730-5782

Joseph P. Casey, deputy county administrator for Hanover County, has received the Virginia Local Government Management Association’s top award for assistant or deputy county administrators. He was nominated by County Administrator Cecil R. “Rhu” Harris Jr., who said Casey has been a great asset to Hanover County in many ways over more than two decades of service. “Joe has provided strong and visionary leadership,” Harris said. “His sustained efforts over a period of many years were largely responsible for enabling us to reach AAA bond rating status by all three ratings agencies last year, making Hanover the smallest county in the U.S. to have achieved the prized ‘Triple-AAA’ status. Last year Joe’s leadership also was instrumental in Hanover being recognized as only the second county in Virginia to receive the Senate Productivity and Quality Award.” Harris said Casey “seeks to get everyone involved in developing creative approaches to solving community issues and never shies away from taking on difficult tasks.” The county administrator also said that Casey supports and encourages all staff members not only to become involved but to take leadership positions in their respec-

tive professional organizations. Seventeen members of Hanover County’s senior leadership team have served as president or vice president of their professional organizations. Casey is involved in professional organizations and the greater Richmond metropolitan community. He has been active in the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) for many years and CASEY in 2005 became the first Virginian in more than 40 years to be elected to the executive board. He also has served on the Board of Directors of United Way of Greater Richmond & Petersburg, helping set funding levels for more than 100 nonprofit programs. Casey is a member of the Board of Directors of Housing Opportunities Made Equal (HOME) of Virginia, a nonprofit corporation that challenges discrimination in access to housing, and is a member of

the Executive Board of the Virginia Equal Housing Federation. “Being recognized by your peers is always a special moment in one’s career and I feel honored with such recognition,” Casey said. “I also am thankful to the many employees and citizens who make working in Hanover County a rewarding experience and for the 21 years of mentoring and support from Rhu Harris.” Casey started with Hanover County in 1990 as assistant finance director and within six months was appointed finance director. He was named deputy county administrator in 2005 and directly supervises the departments of Finance, Assessment, Information Technology, Internal Audit, General Services, and Public Information. He is seeking his PhD in Public Policy and Administration and hopes to complete his dissertation by 2013. Casey and his wife Suzanne live in Mechanicsville with their three sons Jack, Patrick and Harrison. The award presented by the VLGMA to Casey is called the 2011 Marcia Mashaw Outstanding Assistant Award. Information submitted by Tom Harris, Hanover County public information officer.

O’Connor receives Harris award John O’Connor, longtime treasurer of Hanover Community Support Services, is the 2011 recipient of the Jean C. Harris Award for Excellence, the top annual award given by Hanover Community Services. O’Connor has long been a great advocate for providing residential services to people with intellectual disabilities. He was the leader in helping Hanover Community Support Services, which helps fund specific programs and services for Hanover Community Services, buy two properties that became group homes for adults with intellectual disabilities. Most recently, he was instrumental in connecting a prop-

erty on North Snead Street in Ashland with Heart Havens, thereafter establishing another group home for adults with intellectual disabilities. “John is one of those individuals whose response to a request is to immediately say, ‘What do you need?’ ” Tim Slaven, executive director of the CSB, said. “He has always put the client first.” Slaven also said that O’Connor “exemplifies the CSB’s mission to partner with individuals to provide supports and services to individuals with mental health issues, intellectual disabilities and substance abuse disorders.” “He regularly reminds the

HCSS Board to find consistent funding sources so that individuals who need the mental health apartment program will always be able to rely on HCSS for financial assistance,” Slaven added. “I am most proud to say that in 20 years, we have never turned anybody down because of a lack of money,” O’Connor said. “This is truly a great honor.” The late Jean C. Harris served 20 years on the Hanover CSB and was one of the community’s greatest advocates for people with disabilities. The Jean C.

Cooling assistance funds available Local pastor Application forms for the Cooling Assistance program offered by the Hanover County Department of Social Services are now available at the office. The Hanover DSS started processing applications for its Cooling Assistance Program last Wednesday (June 15). The program runs through Aug. 15 or until the money is gone. Cooling Assistance, offered through the Virginia Department of Social Services Energy Assistance Program, helps eligible households meet costs related to cooling one’s home. This can include: ✓ Payment of electric bills (up to a determined maximum) to operate cooling equipment. ✓ Payment of security deposits for electricity to operate cooling equipment. ✓ Repair of a central air conditioning system or heat pump. ✓ Purchase of a whole-house fan, including ceiling or attic fans. ✓ The purchase and installation of one window unit air conditioner for households where there is no unit or where the unit needs to be replaced.

To be eligible, the household must have at least one vulnerable individual aged 60 or older, disabled, or a child under age 6. Assistance is based on the availability of funds and is first-come, first-serve. Renters must have written permission from their landlord to make alterations or improvements to the property in order to be eligible. “It’s probably going to be hot and humid this summer and this weather can be very dangerous to elderly and disabled people as well as children,” said Sheila CrossenPowell, director of Hanover County Social Services. “We urge anyone who would like to know more about the cooling assistance program to call us at 365-4100.” An eligible household can receive more than one type of assistance per application and may apply more than once during the cooling season, but only one member of a household may apply. Financial eligibility is based on income only. Income levels cannot exceed federal poverty guidelines by more than 30 percent. Applicants must provide proof of

income for all household members. Electric utility bills must be in the name of a household member or the service address must be the same as the applicant’s address. The Energy Assistance application has been updated and must be used to apply for Cooling Assistance. It can be accessed on the web at or it can be requested by calling the Hanover Department of Social Services at 365-4100 or on the web at www.dss.virginia.gov/benefit/ea/cooling/index.cgi. The completed application can be mailed, faxed to 365-4110 or returned in person. All applications must be signed by the applicant. The Hanover County Department of Social Services is located at 12304 Washington Highway in Ashland. Applications also can be sent to the new DSS satellite office at 8475 Bell Creek Road in Mechanicsville. For more information about the Cooling Assistance program, call the Hanover Department of Social Services at 365-4100 or stop by the office.

Hanover welcomes three new State Troopers Hanover County welcomed three new troopers with the Virginia State Police following the Friday, June 24, graduation of its 116th Basic Graduating Class. Ricardo Luciana Francis of Staten Island, N.Y., Matthew Raymond Gillespie of Newton Falls, Ohio, and Charles Edward Hewitt of Camden, S.C., graduated at the Virginia State Police Gymnasium at 7700 Midlothian Turnpike in Richmond. The graduating troopers come from every corner of the Commonwealth,

as well as Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, South Carolina and Tennessee. Many in the class sought out the Virginia State Police “for the opportunity to help others” and “to work for one of the best law enforcement agencies in the nation.” For a number of the new troopers this is not their first time to serve Virginians or their nation. Before entering the State Police Academy, several served with various local law enforcement agencies and/or in a branch of the military.

“The graduation of the 116th Basic Session is an event to be celebrated by the new troopers, their families, state police, and the entire Commonwealth of Virginia,” said Col. W. Steven Flaherty, Virginia State Police superintendent. As of Monday, June 27, Flaherty said “Virginians will have 62 additional troopers expertly prepared and dedicated to serving and protecting our highways and communities.” The 116th Basic Session began its demanding 37-week training session

on Oct. 10, 2010. Since then, the new troopers received more than 1,300 hours of instruction in more than 100 different subjects, including crime scene investigation, survival Spanish, judicial procedures, defensive tactics, cultural diversity, and firearms. The graduates’ final phase of training began on Monday, June 27, when the new troopers reported to their respective duty assignments across the Commonwealth. Each trooper will spend a minimum of six weeks with a field training officer learning his or her

Two Covenant Woods employees receive scholarships Covenant Woods has announced that two employees have been selected by the Board of Director’s Development Committee to be honored with the J. Edwin Givens Employee Scholarship. This prestigious scholarship was created in 2009 to honor more than 40 years of service by Givens at Covenant Woods and the former Richmond Home for Ladies. Each scholarship recipient will receive $1,000 towards furthering their education. Recipient Brittany Pierre began her career through the Licensed Practical Nursing (LPN) Dual Enrollment Program at Hanover High School and has served on the Covenant Woods staff since 2010. Brittany, an LPN charge nurse, will continue her education at J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College to pursue her degree in registered nursing (RN).

When asked how Covenant Woods has shaped her career goals, Brittany said, “Working at Covenant Woods has helped me determine what I want to do when Brittany Pierre and Lindsay King have been named the recipients of the J. Edwin Givens Employee Scholarship at Covenant Woods.

I complete my RN. When I first started in nursing I thought I wanted to work with babies but now I know I would like to work with hospice.” Brittany’s supervisor Lori Criswell, director of nursing for Covenant Woods, said, “She is deserving of the scholarship and will use it to the benefit of residents and the larger nursing community.” The second recipient, Lindsay King, has been with Covenant Woods since 2003 and currently serves as rec-

reation specialist in Manor East. Timothy Johnson, president and CEO of Covenant Woods, praised Lindsay’s work ethic and said “She exhibits patience, enthusiasm and respect, and has a natural understanding for the needs of residents she works with.” Upon learning of her award, Lindsay said, “I don’t feel like I’m doing anything special — it’s just me doing what I do and it can be tough at times, but I love my job.” She will now put these qualities to work at Virginia Commonwealth University where she is completing her masters’ degree in gerontology. Since 2003, Covenant Woods has given more than $27,000 in tuition reimbursements and more than $16,000 in scholarships to those dedicated to pursuing education and their ultimate career goals.

It’s a small world for Aylett school alumna The alumni of Aylett Country Day School often speak of staying connected to each other and to the school-but when former kindergarten teacher Arlene Bates instituted the “100th Day Celebration,” little did she know that one alum would experience a connection of a different sort. In February 1999, Sophia Pinkas, ACDS Class of 2007, along with her Aylett classmates, sent postcards to nearly 150 kindergarten classes across the country hoping to receive 100 responses. Sophia received a letter, map and booklet with a page created by each member of Mrs. Evans’ class at Mt. Caesar School in East Swanzey, N.H. Among those were two pages illustrated by twins, Bob and Becky Laird. Sophia, now living in South Carolina, is a recent high school graduate, having participated in an accelerated high school program sponsored by a consortium of eight high schools. Not long ago, her mother was cleaning out some things and drew Sophia’s attention to the little booklet made by Mrs. Evans’ kindergartners. When Sophia came to the pages created by Bob and Becky Laird, she was astounded. Bob and Becky were her classmates at Early College High School in South Carolina. What made it even more remarkable was the fact that the 150 postcards sent out by the Aylett kindergarten class 12 years ago were addressed only to “Any Kindergarten School” with a zip code chosen at random from a zip code directory. Bates said she was equally astounded when she recently received a long letter from Sophia telling her of this unique connection. Sophia included the booklet from the East Swanzey

school and Bates noted as she looked over it, “It was amazing that she made this connection with children she had corresponded with so many years ago. It was so good to hear from her and to know how she valued her early years at Aylett.” About Bates, Sophia said, “I want you to know that I truly appreciate everything you did for me as a student. I loved your classroom, I loved playing in the little house, looking at the bird feeders, playing in the inclass sand box, and making the quilt with my drawing on it.” Sophia added, “Aylett prepared me for the world in the best way. I was taught responsibility at a young age and I believe this was why I was successful at my high school. I want to thank everyone who made this possible.” Bates started the Early Childhood 3-year-old program at Aylett Country Day School, taught that class for three years, and then went on to teach kindergarten at Aylett for 24 years. Now completing her first full year of retirement, she has the time to do the things she has

been waiting to enjoy: reading, gardening and spending time with her two grandsons. Aylett Country Day School is an independent, coeducational day school with students in Early Childhood third through eighth grade. Students come from Essex, King a nd Queen, King William, Middlesex, Northumberland, Richmond, Caroline, Westmoreland and Hanover counties. Aylett is a member of the Virginia Association of Independent Schools whose evaluation and accreditation program is recognized by the Virginia Board of Education and the National Association of Independent Schools. The mission of the school is to develop each child’s full potential in a creative, nurturing environment. Committed to academic excellence, the school is dedicated to building character and fostering traditional values.

Frank Deiny Jr.: his past feeds the future Ashland’s Late Model Stock Car king building on father’s lessons

www.mechlocal.com See video interview online!

By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com For Frank Deiny Jr. stock car racing has become a connection between past and future. The Mechanicsville resident first started racing, not long after beginning to walk and has not slowed down in the three and one half decades since. “I stared driving when I was 3 ½,” Deiny said. “My dad was racing and my mom’s dad was racing.” Despite the early age, he vividly remembers the day his racing career began. “I was playing Hot Wheels when I was three,” he said. “I can remember it like it was yesterday. My dad came to my room and asked if I would like to drive the car instead of pushing the car. I was like, ‘Yeah’. “We went and he bought me a car and we ended up practicing in Dodgers Stadium parking lot during the week,” Deiny said. Because of the size of the parking lot, Deiny’s father, Frank, would simply turn him loose in the car. “If you can imagine, send a 3 ½ year old just out there cruising and hope I was smart enough to come back to him, or at least I would run out of gas eventually. “That’s the way it started and

It was in Dean’s car that NASCAR’s Kyle Busch led all but one lap of the Denny Hamlin Short Track Showdown at RIR this past May. Above: Frank Deiny Jr. gives instructions to Kyle Busch.

I’ve been driving ever since.” Thirty-five years later, in his 11th year of operating FDJ Motorsports a stone’s throw from the Hanover Airport, Deiny has built upon that youthful start and taken part in virtually every aspect of racing, from driver to car builder, to parts developer, to businessman, to developing young talent. “Really we do it all, from building shocks to running cars to running a team out of here and I do bunch of testing during the week,” Deiny said. “I build shocks all across the United States for several different guys. We’ve won championships in Las Vegas and California at Irwindale and do a

The Mechanicsville Local

lot of stuff around North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia area.” Deiny also builds cars for both his drivers and his customers. “We’ll take a piece of tubing and make it into a Late Model Stock Car,” he said. Among those patrons are Jeb Burton, the 18-year-son of NASCAR’s Ward Burton, who won his first Late Model race at Ace Speedway on June 18. “We’re real proud of that,” Deiny said. But bigger names have been in Deiny’s cars this year, most notably NASCAR driver Kyle Busch, who wanted a chance to win in the Denny Hamlin Short Track Challenge at Richmond

International Raceway this past May. “He had been talking to us about driving,” Deiny said. “He had made the statement that if he couldn’t drive for us he wasn’t going to attend the event.” FDJ was not just a grab in the dark for Busch. “The best part about that is he researched us,” Deiny said. “He recognized that we were one of the top teams to be with. What an honor it was that he took the time to research it.” Joe Gibbs teammate Joey Logano, Deiny and three other drivers also climbed into a FDJ cars for the charity race. Behind the wheel of the Late Model Stock Car regularly driven

by one of Deiny’s hot up-andcoming drivers, Brandon Dean, , Busch led every lap but the last at RIR when a mechanical fuel pump failed. “It was just one of those things,” Deiny said. “Nothing we could have avoided or he could have done.” Still,theShortTrackShowdown proved Busch’s research valid. Logano, Deiny and Busch finished fourth through sixth. “To have three of the top six at the end of the night was fantastic,” Deiny said. “And those guys are already talking about what they’re going to do next year; if we’re going to build more cars for them next year.” The race at RIR opened even

more doors for Deiny when two of his former drivers, Brandon and Rick Gdovic ran in the Blue Ox 100 K&N Pro Series East race. “I’ve been talking to them since Richmond about getting involved in their K&N team a little bit,” Deiny said. “We’re going to try to help them with their program and that should help lead us into doing our own K&N program.” Deiny hopes to have his own K&N car ready for next spring’s Pro Series East race at RIR. However, his plans do not stop there. “Eventually it would nice to form a (Craftsman) Truck team out of here,” Deiny said. “That’s see DEINY, pg. 33 `


Optimist Golf Tournament brings out the best Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com The Capital Virginia District of Optimist International again provided an opportunity for area youth to improve their golf game and earn a chance to compete internationally at the PGA in West Palm Beach, Fla. Optimists have a goal

of offering opportunities to “bring out the best in kids.” More than 75 golfers – ages 10 through 18 – gathered the weekend of June 25 at The Crossings Golf Club for the Bill Vaughn-Capital Virginia Junior Golf Classic. The event is held annually as a qualifier for the International Optimist Junior Golf Championship. More than 30 nations

will be represented at the Championship. “This is just one way the Optimists support our area youth,” Matt Ball, tournament official and VCU golf coach, said. “I’ve been involved for the last eight years and I’m happy to lend a hand.” “This is a great event and it’s really well run,” Bob Bannon, whose son Casey

traveled from Alexandria to play, added. Joe Simpson and Will Byrne of McLean played with Steve Aanstoos of Fairfax. The agreed that the event is “an awesome tournament and a great course.” They said they would return for next week’s classic. Shabril Brewer, last year’s winner, came into the classic

with high hopes of again competing in Florida. This is her last year to participate, as she prepares to become a student at James Madison University. She will be attending the Harrisonburg school on a golf scholarship. Tournament chair Gail Headley said, “It’s a lot of work and it would not happen without the financial support of the clubs in the district, Giovanni’s Restaurant, my cochair Lawson Headley and, most importantly, all the volunteers.” According to Headley, 11 golfers are advancing to the Championship, with the district paying all or part of their expenses. Final results from this year’s event were: - Boys 10-11 – Isaac Simmons of Huddleston took first place with a 77 and advances to the Championship. - Fitz Woodrow of Charlottesville won the 12-13 age group with a 74 and also advances. - In the 14-15 age group,

R

Edric Wung of McLean shot a 73 to take first place. Kirby Struhar of Sterling came in second with a 76. Both advance. - Boys 16-18 Tyler Satorius came in first with a round of 70. Will Byrne tied Joe Simpson. The McLean teens had scores of 72. A scorecard match puts Will in second and Joe in third. Both did advance to Florida. - Girls 10-12 was won by Caroline Curtis of Glen Allen, with a score of 96. - In the girls 13-14, Kristin Hearp of Salem shot an 85 to advance. - In the girls 15-18, there was a sudden death playoff between Lauren Eklund of Charlottesville and Lauren Kruszewski of Chesapeake, who both shot 76. On the second hold of the playoff, Lauren sunk a 40-foot putt to win. Both girls will compete in Florida.

far down the road. That’s probably five years from now we’re going to look at that.” Deiny’s plan is to create an environment where young drivers can develop their talent. “We

might have two Late Model teams, maybe a K&N team and maybe a Truck team,” he said. “That’s kind of the goals so we can get drivers to come to us in the Late Models then move to the K&N then move to the Truck… That’s kind of our goal here, is to be able to move them to the next level and

to have people like Kyle Busch call us whenever there’s an event he’s able to attend.” For Deiny, racing and helping young drivers as a way to tribute to his father for getting him started in racing. “I feel closer to my dad then ever when I do sit in that race car,” he said. “My dad died

in 1986 when I was 13, so that’s why I carry the Jr. on the end of my name. It reminds me and everybody else about how great my dad was. If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t be doing everything that I’m doing. I might have only had him for 13 years but it was the greatest 13 years of my life.”

Legion All-Star game draws big time attention By Jim Ridolphi For The Mechanicsville Local Virginia’s top college baseball coaches and scouts converged on Ken Moore field at Douglas Freeman High School earlier last week to get a first-hand look at some of the best scholastic baseball players in the region. The annual American Legion District 11 Showcase All-Star game pitted rising seniors from north and south of the James River against each other on a stage that highlighted their talents in front of some of the state’s biggest and most prestigious programs. “It’s a great opportunity for these kids,” said South head coach Byron Ballard of Post 137. Most of the incoming seniors have not committed to any college, so it was a unique opportunity for many of the players. Virginia head coach Brian O’Connor and VCU’s Paul Keyes were just a few of the familiar faces who kept a keen eye on the action. “I came out here to support American Legion baseball, and see these kids play in a wonderful showcase,” Keyes said. When asked if he was looking to bolster his Ram lineup with an early look at some possible prospects, “Always,” Keyes said. The North jumped out to a quick four-run lead in the bottom of the second inning, but the South of the James all-stars scored two in the fourth inning and took the lead with a threerun fifth. The North knotted the game at five in the sixth. Dinwiddie’s Cory Grant got the tie-breaking RBI in the top of the seventh, and South of the James added three more runs to go up 9-5. They added to that lead in the eighth with two more runs to go up 11-5. The North loaded the bases in the eighth but could only push two across on a throwing

error by the South. “They took a commanding lead and my guys just hung in, and the second time around in our order, they just flat got it done. It was a great team effort by the all of the kids on both sides,” Ballard said. Ballard said he appreciated the way his team didn’t quit and came back after trailing 4-0, but he said the real winners were all the kids who got a chance to showcase their talents. “To be involved in an All-Star game is a great opportunity for these kids,” Ballard said. “Just getting a chance to compete in front of all of these scouts is great,” he added. Cosby’s Luke Lowry had four hits for the South. He was joined by teammates Michael Carpenter, Bryan Miltenberger and James Sink, all rising seniors named to this year’s All-Star Squad. Midlothian’sConnarBastaich and Jacob Stephens also played on the South squad, joined by Monacan’s Jalan Carter. North head coach John Boyer said he also was proud of his team’s performance. “I thought the kids did a good job on both teams,” Boyer said. “It’s all about exposure for the kids,” the Post 361 coach added. He said the game was an indication of just how special Legion baseball is, and said the players couldn’t help but notice all of the attention from area colleges. “They get up and see all of those radar guns pointing and it has to test their nerves… but they won’t admit it,” he said. Boyer said there are drawbacks to the all star format, and the scouts sometimes don’t get to see the subtle values of some athletes. “They get to see a good arm, but they don’t get to see how good that arm is in the fifth inning — how that arm performs with guys at second and third base with no outs,’ Boyer said. Even with the limited play-

ing times, Boyer said it’s a once in a lifetime chance for many of the kids. Lee Davis rising seniors Michael Thomas and Austin McCullough both made the North All Stars, as well as Patrick Henry standouts Cody Crawley and Tyler Ross. John Clark, District 11 baseball chairman, said the showcase game is quickly becoming a favorite among fans and players, and the large number of college coaches present verifies the level of play in American Legion baseball. “We’ve about 20 college coaches in her looking at these kids tonight,” Clark said. “We like to do this every year to showcase the talent in our league, and it’s a great opportunity for the kids who participate,” he added.
