Officer of the Year

Drug arrests, follow-through on cases lead to deputy making Sheriff ’s Office history

Another Bon Secours hospital comes in 2nd

By Melody Kinser mkinser@mechlocal.com Col. David R. Hines apparently agreed with his predecessor when it came to the work of Deputy Davis Gooding. Like retired Col. V. Stuart Cook, Hines found Gooding’s performance to be so impressive that he named him Officer of the Year. What makes his selection especially noteworthy is the fact that Cook had recognized Gooding as Rookie of the Year last year. With the back-to-back designations, the officer made history in the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office. “Deputy Gooding’s exceptional performance during 2010 is representative of his preparation, strong work ethic and desire to ensure the safety of the citizens of Hanover County,” Hines said. The deputy joined the

Orthopedics, Pulmonology and Urology. The rankings, annually published by U.S. News for the past 22 years, also will be featured in the U.S. News Best Hospitals guidebook, which will be available on newsstands on Aug. 30. “To have our hospitals ranked at the national level for core specialties such as orthopaedics and cancer is an honor and testament to Bon Secours’ mission of optimizing the health of the communities we serve,” Peter J. Bernard, CEO, Bon Secours Virginia Health System, said. “We could not have achieved this honor without the hard work and dedication of our clinical and administrative staffs at both facilities.” The core purpose of Best Hospitals is to help guide patients who need an especially high level of care because of a difficult surgery, a challenging condition, or added risk because of other health problems or age. These are referral centers where other hospitals send their sickest patients,” Avery Comarow, U.S. News Health Rankings editor, said. “Hospitals like these are ones you or those close to you should consider when the stakes are high.” Covering 94 metro areas in the U.S., the regional hospital rankings complement the national rankings by including hospitals with solid performance nearly at the level of nationally ranked institutions. The regional rankings are aimed primarily at consumers

whose care may not demand the special expertise found only at a nationally ranked Best Hospital or who may not be willing or able to travel long distances for medical care. The U.S. News metro rankings give many such patients and their families more choices of hospitals within their community and in their health insurance network. “These are hospitals we call ‘high performers.’ They are fully capable of giving most patients first-rate care, even if they have serious conditions or need demanding procedures,” Comarow said. “Almost every major metro area has at least one of these hospitals.” Hard numbers stand behind the rankings in most specialties — death rates, patient safety, procedure volume and other objective data. Responses to a national survey, in which physicians were asked to name hospitals they consider best in their specialty for the toughest cases, also were factored in. Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center and Henrico Doctor’s Hospital also are among those ranked in Richmond. ----Bon Secours Virginia (BSV) is the fourth largest and only faith-based health system in Virginia.

other commendations. In addition to his regular patrol duties, he serves as a breathalyzer operator, is certified in the operation of RADAR, and is a member of the Tactical Field Force. Hines also noted Gooding’s education and military background, as well as his law enforcement training, in influencing what the sheriff called “his strong performance since he began his career with the Sheriff ’s Office in 2008.” Gooding, who grew up in eastern Henrico County and graduated from Highland Springs High School, received a criminal justice degree from The Citadel, where he also prepared for the U.S. Marine Corps. Courses included Platoon Leader and Officer Candidate School. “Once I graduated, I received a commission in the Marine Corps and volunteered for the infantry soon thereafter,” he said. He received orders to go to Camp Lejeune, N.C., to join his unit. He was a rifle platoon commander in the 1st Battalion Infantry with the Marines. His military journey then found him in Al Anbar Province in Iraq, where he led combat operations. Gooding left The Citadel as a second lieutenant in the USMC and has since risen through the ranks to first lieutenant and captain, the office he now holds. A humble man, Gooding

said he was honored by the recognition he has received from the sheriff and his fellow officers. “A lot of respectable men have received this title and I’m thrilled to be one of them,” he said of being named Officer of the Year. “I was 22 years old when I hit the fleet, so I was leading men that were a lot older than me and more experienced,” he said about the first of two tours of duty in Iraq. “We saw pretty heavy fighting,” he said of his first deployment. “I experienced the loss of a few Marines under my leadership in firefights and IED (improvised explosive device) explosions.” “We went over there in 2005; we supported the elections, which was a very violent period in the Al Anbar Providence,” he continued. “Essentially, we were fighting Al Qaeda in Iraq.” “I finished that deployment in 2006 and turned right back around in 2007 and went over again. This time was a first lieutenant with a Weapons Platoon.” They went to Ar Rutbah, clearing the town of about 50,000. Again, Al-Qaeda was the enemy and Gooding and his unit found themselves in what he described as “very heavy combat.” He took command of a tribal militia of about 40 men, who previously had been enemies. The local insurgents “basically wanted revenge against Al-Qaeda.” Gooding said the Marines’ efforts took 40 men and organized a force of 400. see OFFICER, pg. 8

R-MC welcomes prospective students Virginia Private College Week provides application fee waivers to participants By Jim Fields jfields@mechlocal.com With Virginia Private College Week underway, Randolph-Macon College is doing its part to accommodate potential students. The observance started on Monday and provides prospective students with the opportunity to receive application fee waivers that can save them as much as $150. The waiver is contingent upon visits to three or more participating colleges. The Council of Independent Colleges in Virginia (CICV) is working on the program with 25 private colleges, including Ashland-based R-MC, in Virginia. A student, with or without a parent(s), must visit the admissions department of a participating college on or before Saturday, July 30. After each tour, a student will receive a voucher that can be used with an admission application to a CICV college that will waive the application fee. Application fees range from $25

to $50. A student can visit more than three CICV colleges, but will only receive three vouchers. Most colleges have scheduled tours each day at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. The colleges conducting Saturday tours are at 9 a.m. “We believe it’s important to get students on our campus and show them that a quality education at a private college is very affordable,” said R-MC president Robert R. Lindgren. “A student at RandolphLINDGREN Macon can expect to spend approximately $42,000 a year for everything.

OPINION | The Local Views From the editor

What were you doing on Sept. 11, 2001? Depending on your age, there are events that make you immediately think “I was doing (fill in the blank) when I heard the news.” Such was the case nearly 10 years ago when our nation was shaken to the core by attacks. As the 10-year anniversary (yes, it’s hard to believe it has been a decade) of that horrific day nears, the question we ask is: What were you doing on Sept. 11, 2001? If you are willing to share those memories, please submit to mkinser@mechlocal.com. For this writer, the day started like many with a call to the news editor at the daily newspaper in southwestern West Virginia. As editor, my shift ended after midnight and started mid-day. The morning check-in call was just part of our routine. The call that day, however, was met with a “Turn on the TV.” “What channel?” “It doesn’t matter — turn on the TV.” The conversation started not long after the first plane hit the World Trade Center. And then the wheels started turning on another news cycle. That’s part of this business: We kick into “go” mode when we receive a news tip, regardless of the level. Obviously, this story was of a magnitude many in our small newsroom had never encountered or faced. Even though the events of that day occurred in New York, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C., we discovered several local connections — and reporters went about the task of gathering whatever information they could about former residents and their status in those locations. As a nation, we all felt a vulnerability most of us had never experienced. We ached for the losses — and the loved ones they left behind. The sounds of the newsroom echo in my mind as we were vigilant in pursuing the stories, yet staying in tune with the stream of updates provided through the wire service and television news broadcasts. We did our job that day but remained ever mindful of what our country, the land of the free, had endured. So, what were you doing on Sept. 11, 2001? Melody Kinser

Hanover Tavern executive director David Deal, at the podium in the photo at left, addresses visitors, flanked by re-enactors from the 15th Virginia Infantry, a Civil War unit that contained many Hanoverians. Above, volunteers explained exhibits featured in the new Civil War exhibit to an appreciative group of visitors at the pre-opening reception.

Continued from pg. 1 

sents Hanover’s celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. “This was truly a community effort,” Deal said. “All the artifacts that are here on loan were given to us by the community. This is a big deal for the Tavern.” He said the personalized display of clothing and other items highlight “stories that were never told.” The event featured a presentation by the 15th Virginia infantry re-enactors who replicated a scene from the corps’ illustrious past. When the Hanover-based troops were stationed at William and Mary in 1861, a woman used her wedding gown to make a flag presented to the unit. That flag exists today at the Museum of the Confederacy. Liz Watkins Morris sewed the replica for the special Tavern event. After completing several flags for Five Forks, Morris said the group contacted her to produce the duplicate. Asked how many hours it took to complete the project, Morris said, “I stopped counting.”

Following the presentation, visitors got a chance to experience the audio tour first-hand and many focused on the room that contains the new Civil War exhibit. “I think it was a great turnout,” Deal said. “It shows the respect and support people have for the Tavern.” The director said it’s another

step in an ongoing process to enhance the Tavern and allow it to reach its full historical potential. “We needed to present and interpret some history here,” Deal said. “We have a great old building that has a great history.

but then they would wander around the building with only a few placards to look at.” That’s all been remedied with the new audio tour. “Now with the audio tour, you can read and hear the details, and, along with the Civil War exhibit, it gives people a reason to enjoy their history here,” Deal said.

event we have attended in a very long time. It was as good as going to a full dress theatrical play at Hanover Tavern, and that is as good of a compliment as I could give. It made us proud to be Americans and even more so to be Virginians and Hanoverian. We also werevery pleased to meet Dele. Chris Peace at this event. He has a great presence and is as approachable as he is knowledgeable. This was quite the evening, and the combination of Historic Polegreen Church Foundation, Dr. Ragosta and Mr. Peace made an everlasting impression. We would highly recommend this event to anyone interested in history, current events, freedoms and why America is the home of the free and the land of the brave.

That group “turned into what is now known as the Ar Rutbah District Police, which is actually the largest land mass-wise police precinct in Iraq that still operates. I had three different police chiefs that worked for me and probably a dozen majors, captains and lieutenants and several hundred police officers.” Gooding’s exposure to IEDs left him with burn marks on his head and the loss of “a great deal of hearing in my left ear.” He decision to join the Marines stemmed from his desire “to go fight bad guys. I got more than I bargained for.” He returned to the Richmond area in 2007 and left active duty but remains a reservist. His training since has sent him to Morocco and South Africa. Coming back home meant time to find employment.

With a criminal justice degree, Gooding said he “wanted to put it to good use. I’m not the kind of guy that likes to sit in an office all day. I like to solve problems, work with people. I like to outsmart the bad guys.” He was encouraged to pursue law enforcement opportunities in Hanover County and joined the Sheriff ’s Office in 2008 after graduating from the local academy. He left active duty with the Marines on July 14 and officially started work at the Sheriff’s Office the next day. A patrol deputy, Gooding said he patrols a beat, mainly in the Mechanicsville area. He is available for calls for service, to investigate crimes, and enforce traffic laws. Looking ahead, he plans to have “a long career here with the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office. I’ve been propositioned to do work with different federal entities, but I like life here and, moreover, my wife (Rachel, who was born and raised in

Old Church), does. And I like this work. Basically, this is the first line of law enforcement,” he added. “I guess it kind of goes with my roots in the infantry. I like being out there on the front lines with what’s going on in the streets.” Local law enforcement officers, Capt. Michael J. Trice noted, “get people in crisis, an opportunity to intervene and immediately make a difference – sometimes by your presence alone.” “You have the benefit of the citizenry,” Gooding said. “I guess the relationship you build with the community will either help or hurt you in an investigation – whatever crime you’re investigating.” Deputies, he said, have the benefit of establishing community relations. “We have a good agency to work for, good leadership,” Trice said. “All of that goes into attracting good candidates. We have a civic-minded approach, a service-type attitude.”

“Davis is a good example of our young officers,” the captain added. “We have a set of standards that go all the way across-the-board – whether you’ve been here a minute or 25 years.” In addition to Gooding, Hines honored Deputy Jason Taylor as Rookie of the Year, Deputy Danny Rudock as Reserve Officer of the Year and Deputy Michael Mason as Explorer of the Year. The awards are based on nominations, recommendations from a committee and a peer review process, with the final selection being made by the sheriff. Of Gooding, Hines said, “He serves as an example of the type of individual we seek to employ and our expectations for performance soon after the completion of law enforcement training.” Gooding and his wife have two children, Hunter, 5, and Karleigh, 3.

vated by going to the meetings, by keeping track of my weekly progress, and by the support system of my leader and fellow members.” Valerie said she is eating healthier by cooking healthier. “My husband loves that I’m cooking. It makes for a more family environment than going out to eat all the time.” As a matter of fact, she chose not to dine out until the family celebrated her birthday. Even though she had a history of being athletic, she said, “After I had my daughter,

I wasn’t athletic at all. After 3½ years, I still hadn’t lost the weight. I had everything in my life I ever wanted; I realized I didn’t like the way that I was.” She enjoys sharing the story of the time she went to pick her up daughter at school. Gabrielle did not recognize her mother, who had, at that point, had lost more than 70 pounds. Gabrielle kept telling the school administrator that her daddy was coming to get her, not realizing her mom was there. “It was so funny because she really had no idea it was me standing there. She looked up at me and ‘Mommy, I didn’t

see you there.’ ” Valerie is confident her change in lifestyle has already influenced her daughter’s eating choices. “Instead of ice cream as a dessert, she has peaches or some kind of a fruit, which I think will teach her better life skills and she won’t have an issue [with weight]. I think it also teaches her good values to take care of yourself and make yourself a priority.” With her success, Valerie is a cheerleader for Weight Watchers. She has served as an inspiration for her mother, Denise Sullivan-Wade; her sister, Brooke Herbert; and other relatives in becoming members.” Her mother and sister also are life members. Her time to shine came when a member told her about a search for people to star in the next line of commercials. The urging prompted her to apply and submit before and after photos. She received an e-mail about taking part in a video conference. Four days after the video conference, Valerie said “they called me and said they want me to come to L.A. for a week — a week later.” She had submitted her information on Feb. 26 and flew to Los Angeles on March 9, returning home on March 14. Valerie did take advantage

of being in a city filled with glitz and glamour. “I went to the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Our hotel was in Universal City, so I got to go to the city walk near Universal Studios.” She had a brush with fame by having her makeup done by Collier Strong, who was makeup artist for Project Runway. “He was the coolest person,” Valerie said. “And my hair was done by Enzo Angileri, which was really cool.” Nine Weight Watchers members were chosen to go to L.A., but only two were selected to appear in a commercial. “We filmed like an hour of actual footage.” Being in front of the TV camera was “stressful, odd – it was an experience unmatched unlike any other.” They also did a photo shoot, an experience that left her realizing “how hard it is to pose and make it look different every time. They really gave everybody the star treatment.” The experience, Valerie said, “definitely was a confidence booster, and definitely just an amazing opportunity.” Exercise also has become a major part of Valerie’s new life. She is a runner, who usually logs eight to 10 miles. The weight loss also has affected her opinion of herself. She said she is happier and seeing her image in the mirror has become a welcome sight.

LETTERS Continued from pg. 8 

they did not make a conscious decision to be that way, so it must be natural. They are born that way just as all of us are born with a sin nature and sinful desires. It is natural for them, and for all of us, to be tempted to do things that God says are wrong. In the same way, pedophiles, adulterers, alcoholics, drug addicts, etc., do not make a conscious decision to choose that self-destructive lifestyle; they simply give in to their sinful desires. Rather than offend homosexuals by directly confronting this sinful lifestyle, modern evangelism often tries to soften the approach by saying that “God hates the sin, but loves the sinner”. This is not a new concept. Some people have labored very hard to set up this ridiculous and absurd abstraction that God is angry at sin, yet not at the sinner. He hates theft, but loves the thief; He abhors adultery, but is pleased with the adulterer. This is supreme nonsense. The Bible says God is angry with the sinner, not the abstract sin. And that He is angry with all sinners every day. Psalm 7:11 says, “God is always right in how He judges. He is angry

with the sinful every day. If a man is not sorry for his sins and will not turn from them, God’s wrath abides upon him and he (the sinner) will be judged on Judgment Day as guilty and cast into the fire of Hell.” Therefore do not argue with the sinner about his lifestyle but rather use God’s law — The Ten Commandments — to bring the knowledge of sin. This will show him that he is guilty of breaking God’s holy law, and he is damned despite his sexual preference. The law was made for homosexuals as well as all other lawbreakers. No sinner will enter the kingdom of Heaven. Not because God does not love us but because He cannot tolerate sin. Sin is natural for unbelievers, that does not mean God wants them to remain that way. We must all confess our sins to God and ask for His forgiveness. God can set us free from our sinful nature, give us new and right desires, and help us withstand temptations. Homosexuals are deceived if they think the Scriptures condone their lifestyle, or think it’s okay with God, because they cannot change. Homosexuality is sin. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 lists sins, which encompasses all the Ten Commandments and makes it clear no sinner will

be allowed in heaven. Verse 11 reminds us that we were all sinners but that God can wash sinners clean and make them righteous in His sight. Homosexuality is sin, no worse that any other sin. Sin is sin in God’s eyes, and He will judge all sin on Judgment Day. We are all charged by God in His Word and by the life and actions of our Savior Jesus Christ to love, care and help each other. We are not to judge one another for judgment’s sake but are to show true compassion. Part of that compassion is to tell others the truth of God’s Word. Look at these Scriptures: Ephesians 2:1-3 (We are all sinners), 2 Romans 7:23-8 and Ephesians 4:22-24 (God cleanses sinners and gives them new desires), 1 Corinthians 10:13 (All are tempted to sin but God provides a way of escape), 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 (NO sinner will enter the kingdom of Heaven) Claudine Rellihan Mechanicsville

Tim was a very close personal friend of mine; in fact, I might add my best friend. Now this fact is amazing since I am 30 years older than he. I first met Tim some 29 years ago as I was into outdoor work and needed some additional help. I spotted him on his bicycle and being tall felt he could be the person to help me. He agreed and we would go to work on a moped cleaning widows, doing yards and other

work. During that time Tim needed rides to work, movies and other interesting places, which sort of got me out of the house and gave me something to do. I sort of enjoyed this attention, even though “he was using me” for rides. I sort of lost sight of Tim for a few years and we caught up again when he was about to get married. Then the fun started. Just about every week all three of us were always going somewhere, this time in a car, maybe to Virginia Beach or some campground. Then after a few years his wife lost interest in all this outdoor activity so it was just Tim and me. I loved every minute of it. Tim got a boat and we went boating, which opened a new world to me. I generally am a landlubber but quickly got to like the water, which was Tim’s

prime interest. At one time he wanted me to adopt him or become blood brothers, a procedure that was a bit extreme but in actuality in word, deed and action we were “brothers.” I saw potential in this young man and, in fact, got him and his wife interested in computers. Tim’s interest went further: He wanted to be a computer programmer. I was delighted and helped him all I could with financing some things needed to further his budding career. I even employed him as my computer technician to come and fix any computer problem I encountered. I gave him $20 a visit, which he really didn’t want to take but made him take it anyway. I told him upon getting his certificate for computer programming I would raise his pay to $25. Unfortunately, that day was cruelly denied him last on July 9 when he tragically died from his fall from the stairwell at the James River. His death has

‘Town pride’ has made Ashland so successful By Jim Fields jfields@mechlocal.com

NextEra Energy Resources has helped the Town of Ashland with a Flashing Alert sign that notifies citizens and travelers of emergency messages being broadcast on Hanover AM 1700. Shown are, from left, front row, Deputy Fire/EMS Chief Bear Carneal, Ron Rosinski of NextEra Energy Resources and Ashland Police Chief Doug Goodman, and, back row, first responders John E. Portwood, Eric N. Harper and Adam McInemy.

In case of emergency . . . Donation helps police department buy flashing alert sign A donation from a private company will enable the Town of Ashland to receive a Flashing Alert sign that will notify citizens and travelers of emergency messages being broadcast on Hanover AM 1700. NextEra Energy Resources, parent company of Doswell Limited Partnership, worked with Hanover Fire/EMS and the town on the donation. The donation will enable Hanover Fire/ EMS to place the Flashing Alert sign on a location permitted by Town Council, potentially in the median strip near the intersection of U.S. 1 and U.S. 54.

“We’re doing this because public safety is a top priority for our company,” said Ron Rosinski, environmental specialist. NextEra Energy’s plant is located in the Doswell area and is part of NextEra Energy Resources fleet of clean and renewable energy facilities. Ashland Police Chief Douglas A. Goodman Jr. expressed his appreciation to NextEra Energy for the donation. “On behalf of the mayor (Faye O.

Charles W. Hartgrove has an anniversary to celebrate Aug. 1, but it’s not with a spouse. He is engaged to be married, but his upcoming anniversary will be to mark eight years as the town manager of Ashland. “I have been a town manager in the Commonwealth for 14 years and became the Ashland town manager on Aug. 1, 2003,” he said. “I have been very fortunate to work with good town leaders here as far as the mayor and Town Council. They believe in the town’s employees and allow us to do our jobs.” He started his career as town manager in his hometown of Gate City and then headed to the same position in Middleburg. He did three-year stints in each town. Hartgrove said “town pride” is a huge plus for Ashland. “Just look at the July 4th parade, the Railroad Run, the Patrick Henry Half-Marathon and our 150th Anniversary celebration several years ago as to how much this town means to its citizens,” he said. “Businesses and private individuals are always ready to pitch in with time and resources to make a project work.

In the event of an emergency in the town, the Ashland Police Department will be able to transmit messages on AM 1700, Hanover’s low-power radio system designed to provide emergency and community information to motorists. “This provides us with another way to quickly get information out to the public,� said Goodman, adding that the Town Police recently began employing Facebook and Twitter as additional public information tools. Hanover Fire/EMS Deputy Chief Bear Carneal worked with Rosinski to secure the donation. “It was the county administrator’s (Cecil R. “Rhu� Harris Jr.) goal to try and obtain funding for a Flashing Alert message sign for the town,� Carneal said.

signs flash when Hanover AM 1700 is activated for an emergency message. The system was permitted by the FCC as a low-power traveler’s information station with limited range. However, if you see the lights flashing but are unable to find the signal, the message can also be heard by dialing 365-1700. The Hanover AM 1700 radio system was built with Homeland Security grant funds and is designed primarily for motorists, but under good conditions also can be heard with a battery-operated radio. The Flashing Alert signs are located on major traffic corridors dispersed throughout the county. Information submitted by Tom Harris, Hanover County public information officer.

There was to be a shopping area with a name anchor store like Target, along with restaurants, shops and hotels in the commercial sector.

“We have 7,200 people that live here, and that includes approximately 1,400 students and employees at RandolphMacon College,� he said. “We have a wonderful working relationship with the college, and it is an important part of Ashland.� Two items that concern growth, Ashland’s comprehensive plan and zoning ordinances, are being reviewed and rewritten. “We want to make sure that as we move forward, we have the right guidelines for commercial and residential growth,� Hartgrove said. “We want to grow and we want the growth to be the right mix for everyone.� Then, as designated by Gillis, Ashland will continue to be “The Center of the Universe.�

Macon College moved here, and, to a degree, the town has grown around them. “It’s probably not the best situation to have the railroad run right through the middle of town. Traffic is stopped when a train comes through, and rail maintenance can create problems. Then, you might hear a train horn sound in the middle of the night, but most people around here wouldn’t have it any other way.� In the middle of the last century, Hartgrove said Ashland lost its passenger rail service, but it was restored in the 1980s through a community effort led by Mayor Dick Gillis. As for Randolph-Macon College, its students and employees make up about 19.4 percent of the Ashland population.

March, in order to avoid losing two homes and having his wife put into bankruptcy, he sold his shares in Wilton Properties. “We have put a lot into acquiring that land from the county and working with Wilton to develop it,� Hartgrove said. “If developed right, it could be a great addition to the Ashland economy. As I’ve already said, we’re just waiting to see if Wilton can put something together and get the project going or if some other developer might step up and move it forward.� Two other factors he pointed to as reasons Ashland continues to thrive are the railroad and Randolph-Macon College. “Ashland was born of the railroad after the Civil War,� he said. “About the time the railroad came through, Randolph-

Block Party 4-H camp starts Monday Hanover 4-H will take campers between the ages of 9 and 12 for a five-day Block Party residential camp Monday through Friday, Aug. 1-5, at the Jamestown 4-H Camp. 4-H camping teaches youth to make their own decisions, solve problems, and manage their resources without the help of family. Through involvement in the 4-H camping program, youth become better family members by learning how to be more responsible.

Campers and parents of campers also learn to better appreciate each other, and they gain these skills while having a great time in classes like water polo, canoeing, archery, kayaking, forestry and marine science. A campfire closes out each activity packed day. The fee is $235 and includes transportation to and from the camp. For an application, contact Lynn WhitesideJones at 752-4310 or lynnj67@vt.edu.

Symposium attendee Deane S. Flickinger, the son of Jeff and Kathy Flickinger of Mechanicsville and a student at Lynchburg College, received a scholarship to attend the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge 50th Anniversary Symposium in January at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Conservation Training Center in Shepherdstown, W.Va. About 150 attendees listened to several important conservation historians and conservation leaders, including former President Jimmy Carter and field biologist Dr. George Schaller. During the symposium, Lynchburg College students were given the opportunity to learn about the impor-

tance of the Arctic refuge and the untouched ecosystems that reside there. Flickinger said, “The fact that there were scholarships given to only a handful of students by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service National Conservation Training Center made the opportunity even greater. For four days we were able to interact with some of the world’s top players in conservation, politics and history. I took away a much better understanding of the Arctic refuge and how important a place it truly is to our earth.”

Delaney Schmutte recently held her 5th annual LemonAid stand in her front yard to benefit Children’s Miracle Network. Her goal was to raise $500 to help kids with cancer. Thanks to her friends and family, she raised $723.50. Delaney mailed a letter, passed out flyers, and made signs for the neighborhood to advertise her event; she even got her Nana to make 100 cupcakes to boost sales. Her mother said she worked very hard to reach her goal and it paid off.

Miss Mechanicsville Brandy Kieper was joined by Isabella and Jillian Moncure, Junior and Little Miss Mechanicsville, in sponsoring an Anthem LemonAid station on July 16 on the sidewalk at Panera Bread on Bell Creek Road in Mechanicsville. In addition to selling lemonade to raise money for children with cancer, they also painted children’s faces. Panera donated the lemonade. The girls raised $125 for the Children’s Miracle Network.

Several Hanover County firefighters recently took steps to see that LemonAid fundraiser events were successful. Engine 8 and Company 1 personnel found opportunities to pitch in and boost sales at LemonAid stands nearby. The kids hosting the charitable activities were excited -- and thankful -- to have the responders participate. This annual event earns strong support and the proceeds benefit the Children’s Miracle Network. In the photo above, Ashland Volunteer Fire Department crew members and their young friends support a great charity at the Kiddie Kingdom. Firefighters are, from left, Diana May, Logan Stanley, Dallas Larsen, Jesse Allen, Jason Atkinson, Erik Colley and District Chief Ben Murray. Below, Engine 8 was represented by Andy Beaulieu, Marquita Ford, Lt. Chip Hartle, Leigh Bolick and Butch Fuzy. They joined these youngsters in taking a cool break in Montpelier.


Ashland photographer wins awards Robertson captures Photographer of the Year honor for second year in a row Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com Jessica Robertson of Jessica Robertson Photographic Artistry was awarded Photographer of the Year for the second year in a row from Professional Photographers of America (PPA) at the 2011 International Print Competition. She will be honored and her work will be on display Jan. 15-17, 2012, at the Ernest N. Memorial Convention Center

in New Orleans, La. This exhibit of images constitutes one of the world’s largest annual exhibits of professional photography gathered simultaneously under one roof. A panel of eminent jurors from across the United States selected the top photographs from more than 4,000 total submitted entries at Gwinnett Technical College in Georgia. Robertson earned a merit for each of the four images included in her case.

Judged against a standard of excellence, only about 15 percent of entries were selected for the esteemed Loan Collection, the best of the best. Two of Robertson’s prints will be included. The Loan Collection images “Halleluiah” and “Milk Drunk” will be published in the “Loan Collection” book and a third image, “Sitting for Norman Rockwell,” will be published in a “Showcase” book for Judge’s Choice images. This follows her success at

the Southeastern Professional Photographers Association (SEPPA) convention and print competition in the spring, where Robertson submitted four of her state award winning prints and two additional images to this much larger judging venue. She returned home with Best portrait of a child for her image “Boys and Their Toys.” Robertson also was awarded two Second Place Distinguished Awards for Portrait of a Pet

BE WELL lifts excess weight at MES The facility and staff at Mechanicsville Elementary School are energized to BE WELL! Success in lowering disease risk through best health practices have resulted in 1,000 pounds lost. Hanover County Employee Wellness program, BE WELL, proves measurable success in its mission to improve the health of Hanover’s workforce. School nurse and wellness coordinator Elisa Allen is purposeful in her intentions to integrate best health practices daily at Mechanicsville Elementary. Her appetite for success has resulted in cultivating a health conscience community. In October 2009, Allen launched BE WELL’s weight management initiative by

hosting weekly Weight Watchers At Work meetings where accountability, support, education and success are integral components. She also hosts exercise classes and health seminars to foster a comprehensive approach to employee wellness. Since beginning the initiative, employees report improved focus and productivity and possess a better sense of well being. Staff members also are proud to declare lowered heart disease risk and being medically released from maintenance medications to manage high blood pressure and diabetes that the extra weight caused. Allen said she believes that her “small contribution” to battling the national obe-

sity crisis has the potential to reach the students and parents at MES. “I want the children to benefit from our efforts by thinking twice about what they eat and how much they exercise — baby steps can make a profound difference.” She attributed her success to the readiness of the staff and the BE WELL program. “Knowing that the administration with Hanover County Public Schools and Mr. Rhu Harris, county administrator, care about our health by supporting employee wellness, motivates us to take full advantage of this wonderful program.” Information submitted by Linda M. Scarborough, Hanover County Public Schools communications specialist.

Lights go out on Mechanicsville’s season

Post 175 suffers demoralizing loss Mechanicsville surrenders 7-run lead in District 11 semis By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com

Charlie Leffler/The Local

Post 175 raced out to a seven-run lead in the fifth inning of the District 11 semifinals when suddenly the lights on Powhatan’s Baltimore field went out. Above: The players pass the time sitting in the red glow of the scoreboard waiting for the lights to come back on.

Post 175 eliminated after being literally left in the dark By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Mechanicsville Post 175 suffered a technical(ogical) knockout at the hands of Lakeside Post 125, on Wednesday night in the American Legion District 11 at Powhatan High School. The bizarre loss was one that did not overshadow, but definitely put a damper on an outstanding season that saw Mechanicsville come away as the best team in the league over the course of the regular season. However, it was not that Post 175 suffered an upset loss in the tournament semifinals, but rather how they lost, which will

be something that will be talked about for years to come. Post 175 gave up four quick runs to Lakeside in the top of the first but then took control by answering with five of their own in the bottom of the inning. Mechanicsville then limited Post 125’s potent offense to one run over the next four at-bats. Knotted up in a 5-5 in the 5th inning, Mechanicsville’s defense was sharp and on point. Then in the bottom of the inning, Post 175 put up a lights-out offensive explosion where 13 batters came to the plate to reel off seven consecutive runs. Breaking out of the deadlock to take a commanding 125 lead, Post 175 appeared to have the game well in hand. But then the lights went out on Post 175- literally. Lakeside had one on with

July 27, 2011

On Wednesday night, Mechanicsville Post 175 appeared to be in perfect position to earn a slot in the American Legion District 11 championship. In the bottom of the 5th inning, Post 175 broke out of a 5-5 deadlock with Lakeside Post 125 to reel off seven straight runs for a 125 lead. But a light failure on Powhatan’s Baltimore Field in the top of the sixth brought on a 35 minute delay and Post 175 did not return to the field with the same intensity. Mechanicsville gave up 12 runs over the remaining four innings to lose 17-16. “I really think that changed it when the lights went out,” said Lakeside coach Ted Paul. “It changed the momentum because they would have gotten us out there.” Mechanicsville coach Eddie Gates agreed that his team was not the same after the delay and felt they should have handled the situation better. “The lights come back on and we just lost the intensity,” he said. “These kids are old enough and experienced enough to know that kids hit the ball for a reason- to score runs and these kids can hit the ball. We didn’t execute at some

times and played a little stupid at some times.” Lakeside scored quickly in the top of the first before 175 pitcher James Walsh found his groove. A two RBI homer from Porter Reinhardt gave 125 a 4-0 lead with one out. But then Walsh and the Post 175 defense found their rhythm, limiting the potent Lakeside offense to four hits and one run over the next four and two-thirds innings. Meanwhile Mechanicsville’s offense came to life in the bottom of the first against Reinhardt; pitching for the first time this season. With one out, Reinhardt loaded the bases by hitting Brandon Angus, walking Will Connerley then hitting Jordan see LOSS, pg. 37 `

Boze with a pitch. A single to left from Conner Hall drove in Angus and Connerley then Hall along with Boze came home on a double to the right field fence by Ryan Bettinger. A single stretched into a double by Bryan Johansen put two runners in scoring position, signaled a quick end to Reinhardt’s day, and put a further strain on 125’s versatility on the mound. Playing their 14th game in 16 days and their sixth straight in the tournament, Lakeside came into the contest with an exhausted rotation. “We had no pitchers,” Paul said. “The guys that pitched for us tonight, not a single one has pitched for us all year.” Alec Keller came on in relief and notched a strikeout before a single in the gap from Jack Edwards drove in Bettinger for a 5-4 Mechanicsville lead. Post 125 tied the game in the top of the fourth. Jay Hudgins led off with a single to left and reached second on a sacrifice bunt from Micah Gorman. It appeared Mechanicsville would

put an end to the scoring threat when Connerley sprang up from behind the plate to deliver a bullet to Hall at second for a pickoff. But Hall was called for interference on the play when the two collided and Hudgins awarded third. A Keller single up the middle then plated the runner for a 5-5 tie. But Mechanicsville exploded in their turn at bat. Five consecutive hits gave Mechanicsville a 8-5 lead followed by a two RBI homer from Michael Thomas that made it 11-5 and brought Mac Hudgins to the mound for Post 125. But Brandon Angus singled, stole second then scored on a single from Connerley to give Post 175 a commanding 12-5 lead. However, with momentum clearly in their favor, the lights on Powhatan’s field suddenly went off in the top of the sixth and it took nearly 35 minutes to get them back on. Walsh was on a roll prior to the blackout and looked well on his way several more innings of work but he and the rest of the Post 175 defense was not the same upon their return to play.

With one out and Zach Joseph at first, Gorman reached on a single. Mac Hudgins then reached on an error that allowed both Joseph and Gorman to score. Walsh got Keller to ground out, but Hudgins scored to trim the lead 12-8. Casey Fox was walked on four pitches and Chris Dyer singled to short before Reinhardt lofted a shot to left center that bounced off the top of the fence back into the field of play but allowed both runners to score. It signaled the end of Walsh’s night. “He just didn’t have it when he came back,” Gates said. “I should have made the change sooner but I didn’t. I guess that’s my fault.” Johansen came on in relief but what Reinhardt could not accomplish Dave Dwight did with a two-run homer to knot the game 12-12. Paul was not surprised that his team made a comeback. “They never give up,” he said. “They won last night 10-9 down 7-0 in the first inning. So these kids never give up.” The same could not be said

one out and Micah Gorman facing a 1-1 count when the lights on Powhatan’s Baltimore Field suddenly went off. The scoreboard remained on. The PA still played. But the field was swallowed in darkness- an event Powhatan officials said had never happened at the school before. Left in the dark on the excessively hot, humid night and seeing their team trailing by seven runs past the midway point of the game, nearly half of the Lakeside fans packed up to head home in hopes of spending the rest of their evening in air conditioned comfort. Everyone else was left to sweat it out.

Mechanicsville’s Bryan Johansen comes up short in his attempt to make a catch on a Micah Gorman single dropped on the right field line.

Post 175’s players passed the time staying loose by shagging balls, jousting one another on piggy back and practicing their golf swings with baseball bats while the Lakeside players mulled over an impending loss

within the confines of their dugout. Time ticked on in a game that would eventually take almost four hours to complete and everyone waited. Only thirty-five minutes

for Mechanicsville. “From the first inning, even though they scored first, once we came in and pounded them, we felt we had the momentum all the way until the lights cut off and we had that delay,” Hall said. “I guess some people sat around and got tired, I was one of them, but some people just got to over-

come that. We didn’t come out all nine players towards the end of the game.” Post 175’s offense still sparkled in the bottom of the sixth when Zach Broaddus, Edwards, Thomas and Angus led off with four consecutive doubles to retake the lead 15-12 and bring Dwight to the mound.

passed but it seemed much, much longer before the lights came back on at Baltimore Field. For Mechanicsville, the lights never did come back on. When the teams finally returned to play, Post 175’s momentum was long gone as they surrendered their advantage to eight straight Post 125 batters that scored seven runs to tie the game. Lakeside finally took the lead in the top of the ninth and Mechanicsville could not answer, falling 17-16. “From the first inning, even though they scored first, once we came in and pounded them, we felt we had the momentum all the way until the lights cut off and we had that delay,” said Mechanicsville short stop Conner Hall. “I guess some

people sat around and got tired, I was one of them, but some people just got to overcome that. We didn’t come out with all nine players towards the end of the game.” Ironically, the sudden, yet limited, blackout should not really have come as that much of a surprise. After all, something pretty strange things had happened in every matchup between the two teams this season. “It always happens. Always,” said a disappointed Post 175 coach Eddie Gates after the semifinal loss. “Lights go out. Weird plays, whatever.” No one could explain what happened to the lights at Powhatan that night, but it was clear Mechanicsville lost sight of a possible championship in the dark.

Dwight notched one out before Boze drove in Angus for a 16-12 lead, but Post 175 would record only one more hit over the final three innings of play. “We hit a stretch there in the middle of the game where five of the six balls we hit were pop ups,” Gates said. “Three of them didn’t even get out of the infield. Certain situations you’ve got to hit the ball and you’ve got to get it out of the infield and we didn’t do it. We didn’t execute on certain plays. Some plays we did. Some plays we didn’t.” Meanwhile Lakeside tacked on two runs in the top of the seventh and three more in the top of the ninth to take the win. Though Mechanicsville had one of the best regular seasons in their history, the disappointment of the finish was difficult to swallow. “We had a great season,” Hall said. “Everybody came through, the whole lineup came through. “It sucks,” he added. “We were the best team out here no doubt. We just ran into injuries and we couldn’t get it going like we had it at the beginning and the middle of the season. We couldn’t get it rockin’. We couldn’t hit on all cylinders.”

Father-son duo happy that life’s a drag Colbert race combo leaving their mark on the dragstrip By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Wyatt Colbert and his 8-yearold son Tyler find sharing weekends a drag, but they wouldn’t have it any other way. For years Wyatt, Tyler and wife/mother Lorrie would spend most of their summer weekends traveling to regional drag strips. The family would cheer dad on as Wyatt raced against the region’s best;

a tradition that began during his time at Lee-Davis High School. Ironically it was one love that brought Wyatt to another when he first started dating his future wife Lorrie. “Her dad (Bobby Williams) was big into muscle cars and drag racing and so on,” Wyatt said. “After going over there and hanging out for a while, I just became big into drag racing and muscle cars myself.” So much so that Wyatt purchased his first drag car at age 16 and started making regular trips to the nearby

Richmond Dragway. “Drag racing on weekends and never really stopped since then.” Though Wyatt played baseball, football and basketball for the Confederates, he found his real calling in motorized competition. “I was into all that until I got my driver’s license and started driving and found out what a drag strip was about,” he said. Over the years since, Wyatt’s area of competition has increased. “We do race pretty much every weekend,” he said. “If there’s not a local race we travel out of town. This year we’ve raced at Maryland, Richmond, Dinwiddie, Dunn-Bensen in NC, Farmington NC, Bristol and we’re gong to Rockingham.” Though the weekend tradition has not changed, racing itself took on a different form for the Colberts this spring when Wyatt made the switch from muscle car to rail dragster. “It’s just like everything else,” he said. “This is a better tool.” Wyatt saw immediate results

from his new car in late May when on a whim he and a group of local drivers decided to attend the prestigious Spring Fling put on by drag race legend Peter Biando in Bristol, TN. The weekend boasted three $20,000 races and a Thursday night event that paid $12,500. “Some friends of ours from Richmond and some of the local tracks got together and said, ‘Hey, let’s go down there and try to win some of that money’,” Wyatt said. “It was a long shot because you’ve got the world’s best down there by far.” Driving against the best, Wyatt claimed the Thursday night race and the $12,500 purse. “Winning that gave me a lot more confidence as the year’s gone on,” he said. But a week later Wyatt’s pride swelled further when 8-year-old Tyler made his debut in the Jr. Dragster division. For the Colberts, it was only a matter of time before Tyler followed in his father’s footsteps. “There was no question he was going to be a part of it,” Wyatt said. “He was at drag strips from the time he was born on up…It’s

been known he was going to race and he let us know he was going to race. “By the time he was five we bought him a junior dragster but he had to wait until he was eight to get in it,” Wyatt said. Tyler, who attends Cold Harbor Elementary, made it clear why he likes drag racing. “Doing it with my family,” he said. Tyler’s car is a half scale version of his father’s dragster and the one notable difference is that the junior model has a more narrow rear wheel base. Naturally there’s a difference in horsepower as well. “Mine has like a 590 cubic inch motor where his has a little five horsepower motor,” Wyatt said. “They look a lot alike, the same characteristic of one another.” Running in the Jr. Dragster 1290 class, the cars are limited to a maximum speed of approximately 52 mph, which Wyatt explained is a difficult task not to surpass. “You’ve got to put tons of weight in them,” he said. “Put a lot of slippage in the clutch because they want to run faster

than that now.” Next year Tyler will move up to the 890 class where the speed range is between 70-80 mph. At 11 he’ll advance to the 790 class with speeds around 100 mph. “It’s pretty amazing for those kids to be going that fast,” Wyatt said. It was clear racing ran in Tyler’s veins when he claimed a runner-up finish in his debut at the IHRA Pro-Am at Farmington Dragway. The following weekend at Dunn-Benson Dragstrip in his second event, Tyler finished on top to earn his first Iron Man trophy. As of two weeks ago, Tyler was ranked third nationally in the 1290 division. For Wyatt, watching his son’s accomplishments is better than winning himself. “It’s overwhelming,” he said. “I’d give everything of mine away just to see him accomplish what he’s accomplished this year. A lot of guys that go to these Pro-Ams have been racing more than he has and for him to go out there and do as good as he’s done, I’m really proud of him.”

Wyatt Colbert has been involved in drag racing since his days at Lee-Davis High School, but this year his family saw two major changes. Wyatt switched from a muscle car to a rail dragster while 8-year-old son Tyler made his debut as a driver as well.

VCU gives Rhoades promotion Key Rams aide is named associate head coach Staff reports Mike Rhoades, who enters his third season on the sidelines with the VCU men’s basketball program, was promoted to associate head coach for the upcoming year, a move announced by head coach Shaka Smart last Monday. “Mike is an invaluable member of our coaching staff and a terrific resource using it as an opportunity to really improve and develop even more. I want to be prepared as best as I can whenever it’s time to return.” Rhoades, a native of Mahoney City, Pa., has played an integral role in the Rams’ success the past two years, which culminated in the school’s first Final Four appearance in March. VCU also has compiled 55 wins, the highest total in any two-year stretch in school history. He has been vital to success on the recruiting trail as well. A former All-America point guard, Rhoades mentored Joey Rodriguez, who posted backto-back seasons of 200-plus

Entering his third season at VCU, former R-MC head basketball coach Mike Rhoades, above left, has been promoted to the Rams’ associate head coach position. Rhoades proved a vital part of Shaka Smart’s (right) coaching staff during their run to the 2011 NCAA Final Four.

assists, a feat that had never been accomplished in school history and only two other times in CAA history. “I am really appreciative of this new title and continuing to work with coach Smart, our staff, players and administration,” Rhoades said. “The past two seasons have been extremely fun and exciting and I look forward to helping our program continue to move forward on and off the court at VCU. I am very thankful for the great opportunity Shaka

and the administration gave me two years ago and again for this new title. I can’t wait to get back on the court with our players this fall.” Prior to VCU, Rhoades spent 10 years at Randolph-Macon, helping turn the Yellow Jackets into a Division III powerhouse. He compiled a record of 197-76 with four NCAA tournament appearances. As a player, he led Lebanon Valley to the 1994 national championship, and was named Division III player of the year.

Local soccer players earn state title Staff reports Five local soccer players were part of the Virginia Rush U-19’s success at the Virginia State championship. Mike McCabe-Goalkeeper (Atlee/Marshall University), Russell Bootwright, Midfielder(Mills Godwin/College of Notre Dame), Dylan Bowman, Midfielder-(James River/ Princeton University), Mason Page-Midfielder, (Matoacca/Old Dominion University) and Nate Shiffman-Midfielder, (James River/Virginia Commonwealth University) helped the Virginia Rush 91 score 17 goals in three games to win the state title. In the championship, the team only gave up one goal to a penalty kick. The group advanced to the US Soccer Region 1 Championships in East Petersburg South Carolina at the beginning of July and finished pool play with a 2-1 record. Virginia Rush 91 lost to Lower Merion Valez (PA) 20 in their opener but defeated EUSA Syracuse 3-2 the following day. Virginia then defeated Century United Football Club of Pittsburg 7-5.

The 9U girls softball team from Atlee Little League won all three games in the All Star tournament against Mechanicsville Little League.

Taking a lead off first base, Mechanicsvile’s Zach Broaddus keeps a close eye on the Post 125 pitcher during the District 11 semifinals. In the top of the sixth, the lights on Powhatan’s Baltimore Field suddenly went out and the game was delayed for 35 minutes. When the teams returned to the field, Post 175 had lost their momentum and eventually fell to Post 125 17-16.

Tryouts for Hanover Thunder 12U girls fastpitch softball team will be held: Tuesday, August 9 at Ironbridge Park in Chesterfield 6-9 p.m. and Thursday, August 11 at Mechanicsville Little League 69 p.m. Contact Mark Berry at (804) 370-2798 or visit www. hanoverthunder.com.

defeated Poquoson 15-0 on Sunday. At press time Monday morning, the team held a 3-0 lead in the top of the second over DTQ when the game went into a rain delay. At the time, Atlee had hit a total of nine home runs in the tournament while only giving up a total of four hits. Depending on weather conditions, Atlee could compete for the state championship as early as Monday afternoon. For more information go to www.mechlocal.com
