The academy, held June 26-July 2 at NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton, was hosted by NASA Langley in a partnership with the Virginia Space Grant Consortium. Before the academy, the students completed a sixmonth interactive distancelearning program on aerospace exploration that prepared them for their intensive week at NASA Langley. During the academy, Griffin built, programmed and tested robots, toured NASA labs and facilities, talked with NASA researchers, scientists and astronaut Dr. Roger Crouch, as well as

Griffin worked on a team charged with finding evidence of life on Mars, collecting and processing samples, and determining proper space tools to use. “The mission planning was very intensive,” he said. “But I got to meet a lot of new people and gained experience working in a group. I was constantly learning something new.” VASTS is a competitive program that allows high school juniors the opportunity to engage in an online NASA-based course that uses a space exploration theme to

teach a broad range of math, science, engineering and technology skills. Applications for the 2010-2011 program will be available Sept. 1, 2010, and will be due by Nov. 5, 2010. Selections will be made and coursework initiated in early December. ----For more information about VASTS or for an application, visit: http://www.vasts. spacegrant.org.

Chimps get brief taste of freedom By Melody Kinser mkinser@mechlocal.com Freedom was brief for two chimpanzees that managed to escape from a private facility off Beatties Mill Road in Mechanicsville last Wednesday. According to Kevin M. Kilgore, chief of Hanover County Animal Control, one of the apes was “almost immediately captured,” while the other was captured at first light Thursday morning.

The one rounded up soon after the escape was located on the property. Kilgore said the other chimp was found nearby. “When it got dark, it bedded down and ended up on Little Florida Road, where it was captured. They’re not nocturnal animals; they will nest at night.” He also said there was no danger at the Little Florida Road location where the second chimpanzee was caught. “The animals are in good

Animal Control was contacted about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 21. “Nobody was ever in any real danger,” Kilgore said the next day. Officers with the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office also responded to the scene.

shape and they’re well taken care of,” Kilgore added. Operations at the farm were back to normal on Thursday. “No one was hurt,” Kilgore said,” and the chimpanzees are in good shape.” Referring to Windy Oaks Animal Farm, Kilgore said, “They have a lot of really interesting and neat animals.” He said the site at the farm “is a model facility. It’s very safe and secure. I would consider

road near the intersection of Annfield Road. Clinton, who had been to a party in the 16000 block of West Patrick Henry Road, was walking back to the Annfield Road residence where he had some possessions. “When he went to the party, he had left from a residence on Annfield Road, so he was walking back,” Klisz said. Clinton’s body was found about 200 yards from his destination. “The medical examiner determined that he had died from head and body blunt force trauma, and it was believed that he had seen hit by a vehicle while he was walking in the road,” Klisz added. Clinton had a side business cutting grass and also did some logging. “He was generally regarded as a hard worker,” Klisz said. “He was always working and offering to do stuff.” ‘It was not unusual for him to walk long

distances in the west end of the county,” the investigator said. “Since he was so well known, people would pick him up and give him a ride.” Klisz said Clinton “was well liked. He came from a large family and he was known to walk long distances to get to his destination, so it wasn’t unusual for him to be walking several miles home.” As the fifth anniversary of Clinton’s death approaches, Klisz continues to work the case. “I conducted a pretty exhaustive investigation. I was assigned to it back then – interviewed 60-plus people, family and residents. People had come forward who had seen him walking.” Klisz said he was “able to establish a timeline. The investigation had progressed to a point where we did have two people testify in front of the grand jury.” While some information was provided, “we weren’t able to move forward from that.” “No theories were really developed that could be based on any evidence,” Klisz said. He “tracked down a lot of rumors, but

nothing very substantial.” Looking back to that night five years ago, he said he “was on call that weekend and we were out there for 15 hours that day – just for the initial investigation. Our forensics investigator was out and some supervisors.” Klisz said “There were some vehicles that we started suspecting that could be involved. They were tracked down and eliminated. We never stopped working on it, so when the anniversary comes around, it’s nice to get some attention on it.” In an attempt to gauge the traffic in the area where Clinton was killed, a road check was done the week after his death. According to Klisz, officers were at the scene “on the same day of the week, just to see who came through there.” The check did not develop any information. On Saturday, Clinton Terrell will have been gone five years. Anyone with information concerning the July 31, 2005, hit and run is asked to contact the Sheriff ’s Office at 365-6110 or Richmond Crime Solvers at 780-1000.

OPINION | The Local Views From the editor

The term neighbor isn’t what it used to be Sadly, the days are gone when the man or woman next door was just a good neighbor. It doesn’t seem that long ago when those either next door or throughout the neighborhood shared the same goals: being responsible to family and employer. That description has become an idyllic dream. These days, the person next door could very well be a predator. In the good news department, though, we can learn the identity and circumstances surrounding that individual — including the criminal history that led to the oh-so-public disclosure. A visit Monday to the Virginia State Police website, http://www.vsp. state.va.us/, revealed a listing for 57 offenders in Mechanicsville on the Sex Offender Registry. Parents should check out this registry. Residence requirements apparently have changed since registering as a sex offender became a mandatory condition. In other words, there could be a registered sex offender living near a school. We should all take the time to become acquainted with the State Police website — and carefully review the photos, names and information on those listed on the Sex Offender Registry. Hanover County residents are fortunate to have a strong law enforcement presence with the State Police and Sheriff ’s Office. We can help them though by educating ourselves on what is going on in our communities. Should you find a sex offender in your neighborhood, keep in mind that harassing and intimidating acts are not the answer — and they aren’t legal. If there’s a problem, contact the authorities.

Fantastic following As of Monday, The Mechanicsville Local’s Facebook page had an astounding following of 1,790. The number grows daily and it’s because of you and your support that we enjoy continued success in social media. Please share your thoughts and photos at www.facebook.com/mechlocal. Melody Kinser

Atlee High School ~ 9414 Atlee Station Road, Mechanicsville, VA 23116 ~ August 2010

August Raidergram Dear Atlee Families, I am honored to join the Atlee community as the newly appointed principal. As an educator for the last seventeen years, I am eager to work with you to sustain and enhance the Quality Learning Community at Atlee H.S. I would like to take the opportunity to share a little bit about myself and my professional background. After graduating with a degree in English from Cornell University in 1992, I continued my path of lifelong learning at Virginia Tech, VCU, and most recently, William and Mary. As a teacher, I love sharing my passion for reading, writing, and thinking. I also treasure the relationships I built with students as a softball coach, debate sponsor, and literary magazine advisor. Through these relationships with students and their families, we continue to grow and excel as a community. Since my appointment, I have begun to immerse myself in all of the wonderful aspects of the Atlee culture. Both the spring academic awards ceremony and graduation itself highlighted the many achievements earned by our students this past year. Additionally, just this past week, we received notification that Atlee H.S. has once again been recognized

Athletic Director News Another school year is rapidly approaching and the athletic department is ready and excited about the outlook for the 2010-11 athletic teams.

Please refer to the following list for the caseload breakdown and phone numbers for your counselor: Dr. Fisher (A-F) 723-2115; Mrs. Allen, Director of School Counseling/IB students, (G-I) 723-2113; Mrs. Martin (JQ) 723-2116; Ms. Garber (R-Z) 723-2111;

by Newsweek Magazine as one of America’s Best High Schools. Although this distinction certainly sets us apart, we are also proud to be a community that offers its students opportunities to gain twenty-first century skills through academics, athletics, and unique extracurricular activities. Teachers have been eager to share with me the success stories of our students, from robotics to athletics, band, and student publications. Go, Raiders! This fall, the students and community of Atlee will have the opportunity to become a part of Rachel’s Challenge, a program that emphasizes many of the same values we embrace at Atlee through the Pillars of Leadership. Continuing the tradition of fostering a safe, nurturing, and supportive learning environment is certainly a priority for me as a leader. As a parent of two daughters, I value the partnership between home and school as we all strive to assist each child in finding individual success. Please join me for one of several Principal’s Coffees scheduled in August so that we can celebrate our successes, share ideas for the future, and continue Atlee’s journey of excellence together.

‘After Easter’ performances set in August The Ville Players announces Aug. 12-14 and Aug. 19-21 performances for Anne Devlin’s “After Easter” at the former St. Ann’s Church at RandolphMacon College on the corner of Henry and England Streets in Ashland. Curtain is at 7:30 p.m. each evening. Taking place amidst “The Troubles,” a time of political and religious unrest in Ireland, “After Easter” depicts the quandary of an Irish family that is detached from tradition and struggling to regain its identity. The play is driven by the tortured religious visions of the oldest daughter, Greta, who has forsaken both her country and her faith. The lines between sane and insane, sacred and secular, and Irish and English are blurred in this poignant but ultimately hopeful tale. Beginning several days before Easter in 1994, the story concludes soon after Easter, humorously relating several events of religious significance, as well as a family tragedy. The cast of the show includes Rebekah Carrow, James Murray, Gemma Smith, Tonya Pleasants, Patricia White, Pam Beatty, Sean O’Hara, Amber Chadil, Adam Smith and Will Magnant. Direction is by Elizabeth “Bitsy” Johnson, with stage management by Elicia Porter. Admission prices are $10 and $8 for seniors (62 and over). Reservations may be made online at www.thevilleplayers.com by sending a request to Wanda@thevilleplayers.com, or by calling 5126291. Tickets will be available at the door and all tickets are paid for at the door by check or cash. Seating is limited. For reservations, or for further information, call 804512-6291. Parking is across the street from the theater venue.

Good Help to Those in Need®

This summer, the Parsons’ Cause Foundation continues to provide free presentations of a famous case involving Henry commonly known as The Parsons’ Cause in the historic courthouse at Hanover. Historical re-enactors take on the major roles, but the public also serves an important function in the production. They act as jurors and other court officials in the proceeding. According to re-enactor Michael Wells, who portrays Henry, the program has been received well. “We’ve had good responses to the program this summer and the crowds have been good,” he said following a weekend performance. The Parsons’ Cause was one of the first outbursts against King George III and took place in 1763. The case involved the salaries of clergymen assigned to duty in the colonies. Traditionally, the parsons were paid in tobacco, a lucrative and worthy exchange for their services, at least in their estimations. The Virginia House of Burgesses saw the potential liability in compensating the clergy with a commodity whose value constantly increased and

changed the scale and set it at two pence per pound of tobacco. The clergymen appealed directly to the king, after unsuccessful attempts to have the law overturned in colonial courts. The burgesses were rebuked in 1759 when the law was repealed. Many ministers in the colonies sought back compensation under the old system, an action that only fueled the fires of revolution in the colonists. After a Virginia court ruled in favor of the Rev. James Maury, a jury was seated to determine the amount of compensation owed him, ranging from the full amount requested to one penny. Henry represented the losing side in the case heard by his father, Col. John Henry, in the Hanover County Courthouse. Henry argued the king had no right to interfere with a law passed by the House of Burgesses, and maintained that government was a conditional compact between the king and his subjects. He likened the king’s actions to tyranny. After hearing the case, the jury retired and promptly returning with a settlement in the amount of one penny. ----The re-enactment takes about 45 minutes and audience members are asked to fill out verdict forms. If you missed the first two performances, there’s still time to enjoy the historical re-enactment. Two more are scheduled for July 31 and Aug. 14. Court begins at 11 a.m. in the old courthouse. The Parsons’ Cause Foundation is a nonprofit corporation whose mission is to sponsor the re-enactments and promote the historical importance of The Parsons’ Cause. For more information, call 837-4900 or visit the website at www.parsonscause.org.

GO ONLINE AND EXERCISE YOUR BRAIN! It seems that seniors can use the Internet to exercise their brains much the same way a treadmill exercises their bodies. According to research, even adults between ages 55 and 78 with little Internet experience show signs of improved brain activity after only one week online. This comes as very good news to older adults in light of the fact that aging brains undergo a number of structural and functional changes that adversely affect cognitive function. Research indicates, however, that mental ability can be preserved by engaging in activities that stimulate the mind. The latest study shows that, by conducting Internet searches for one hour a day, seniors displayed brain-activation patterns that were similar to those of savvy Internet users. Stimulating the mind and body has been proven to stall the aging process, which leads to better living. The Internet creates excellent opportunities for seniors to meet people, conduct business, plan travel, access records, stay in touch with friends and family, and support hobbies and entertainment interests. At Heritage Green, we believe in providing stimulating brain activities for our residents! Our EVERGREEN unit provides Memory Care for those with dementia with a focus on activities to promote higher functioning. Physical activities such Wii Bowling or mind “work” such as Wii “Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader” provide our residents with much fun while keeping them thinking! Come visit us and see how we can help your loved one! Customary Assisted Living available as well. Presented by

Christine Smith Executive Director

P.S. Activities such as playing cards and board games, doing crossword puzzles and reading also exercise the brain and preserve cognitive function. (Information based on research studies; always seek the advice of your physician)

HYSC (Hanover Youth Service Council) and the Hanover Department of Community Resources are teaming up with other organizations to develop a communitywide partnership to collect school supplies for Hanover students in need. The Ready, Set … School! Partnership – Helping Hands, Hanover County Public Schools, Hanover Youth Service Council, Stuff the Bus with First Capital Bank, Hanover Community Resources, Covenant Woods, Heritage Green, Hanover’s Community Education Team and The Giving Heart – has been established to maximize resources and help school counselors provide services to Hanover students in need. Ready, Set … School! partners will work with community groups, churches and volunteers to collect donated supplies requested by Hanover County elementary, middle and high school counselors. The counselors requested supplies most needed by students and identified students from their school who could benefit from the donated items. “The partnership is a great asset to our school families in need,” Rachel Wheeler, 8th grade counselor, Liberty Middle School

and member of the partnership planning committee, said. “This collaboration is involving the community and allowing more students to get the help they need to be prepared for their first day of the 201011 school year.” Rather than individual groups providing supplies to students/schools independently, the Ready, Set … School! Program allows community partners to join forces to reach more families and reduce duplication in a consistent and coordinated way. It’s the 12th annual school supply drive to be held through the Hanover Department of Community Resources and the HYSC. It will be held through Aug. 23. HYSC youth have placed collection boxes at the Department of Community Resources in Ashland, all Hanover Library Branches, the Hanover County Administration Building and numerous businesses and other public locations. HYSC youth also will be at the Mechanicsville Wal-Mart from 9 a.m. to noon on Thursday, Aug. 5, to accept supplies. Also, HYSC and Covenant Woods will host the 2nd Annual Pack-A-Backpack event for elementary students in the east-

ern/central area designated by their counselors to “go shopping” for backpacks and school supplies that were donated from the collection drive. Parents of students attending Pack-ABackpack will have an opportunity to participate in “1,2,3 Magic” parenting workshop and receive other back-to-school info and resources and dinner free courtesy of Hanover Heritage Green. All parents of students in need of school supplies are advised to contact their school counselor. Any community business, church groups or organizations looking to support Hanover families by collecting or donating supplies should contact one of the following representatives: 3 To assist students attending Eastern or Central Hanover Schools contact Lisa Adkins, Hanover Department of Community Resources at 365-4300 or ldadkins@co.hanover.va.us. 3 To assist students attending Western Hanover Schools contact Mary Gravley with Hanover’s Helping Hands at mgravley@msn.com.

Suits, dresses and “uniform” items such as black pants, white shirts or outdoor wear are especially welcomed.

In addition to clothing and accessories, The Giving Heart will be distributing Family-Sized “Giving Bags.” The reusable bags offer five toiletry essentials – soap, deodorant, shampoo, toothbrushes and toothpaste. Those considering donating

are asked to supply a filled bag or other toiletries that may be offered to individuals and families. Intended recipients include about 477 Hanover County families with incomes less than $300 a month, as well as individuals and families within the Greater Richmond Metropolitan Area who can demonstrate financial need. Information regarding the distribution location and process will be sent at a later time. Volunteer opportunities are

available through our online application (www.thegivingheart.org). The Giving Heart is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides food, fellowship and essential items to those in need. Current programs include the Community Thanksgiving Feast, Giving Bag Project and “Got You Covered” Clothing Event.

Robertson named Photographer of Year Each year professional photographers from all over the world participate in an international print competition held by the Professional Photographers’ Association (PPA). The PPA is the world’s largest nonprofit association for professional photographers with more than 20,000 members in 54 countries. Jessica of Jessica Robertson Photographic Artistry in Ashland has earned the Photographer of the Year Award fromProfessionalPhotographers of America (PPA). She will be honored at PPA’s annual

convention, Imaging USA, in January in San Antonio, Texas. “These coveted awards honor the consistent quality of the photographer’s images in one of the world’s most celebrated image competitions, PPA’s International Photographic Competition,” Denis Craft, PPA Print Exhibition Committee chairman, said. Robertson submitted four images that were judged amongst other photographer’s submissions from an international pool of entries. All four images merited. All merited images enter PPA’s renowned

General Collection. One of those four images, entitled “Don’t Go, Daddy,” received the highest possible honor: acceptance into the PPA Loan Collection. The Loan Collection travels the world for one year and is

displayed at photographic exhibitions, conventions and other photography events. “As this was our first year competing on an international level, we were really excited to receive such recognition,” she said.

Richmond loses a broadcast legend Terry Sisisky dead at age 58 By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com The Richmond airwaves lost a friend and a historic voice on Thursday evening when longtime radio broadcaster Terry Sisisky passed away after a brief bout with cancer. Sisisky was diagnosed in April, soon after completing television broadcasts of the VHSL state basketball championships. Nicknamed “T-Man” Sisisky was best known as the voice of VCU basketball, where he spent 28 years. Inducted into the VCU Hall of Fame in 2009, Sisisky was part of 840 Rams basketball games prior to his retirement in 2008. Perhaps overshadowed is the fact that Sisisky was also the longtime radio voice of Randolph-Macon football as well as high school and youth athletics around the Richmond area. Regardless of the level of athletics that Sisisky was involved in, he gave it an equal effort. For the past 32 years, the Central Virginia area airwaves have been filled with the voice of Sisisky broadcasting high school athletics, with a concentrated effort going towards his alma mater, Petersburg High School. It was at Petersburg where freelance reporter Jim Ridolphi first came to know Sisisky. “He used to crawl up a rickety old

Though better known for his work with VCU, for the past 15 years, Terry Sisisky was the voice of Randolph-Macon football. As one of the best prepared and most dedicated broadcasters in the business, Sisisky was rarely seen with a joke or a smile. On Thursday, Sisisky passed away after a brief battle with cancer.

scaffold to broadcast the football games when the school didn’t even have bleachers,” Ridolphi said. “He really gave his heart and soul to his job, and no one prepared better than Terry. “I began working with him while he was doing Petersburg basketball and football games,” Ridolphi said. “It wasn’t a glamorous assignment, but Terry approached it with his typical enthusiastic professionalism.”

The Mechanicsville Local

July 28, 2010

And it is the people who met Sisisky who are most blessed because with even the briefest encounter he had a way of making a person feel like a longtime friend. Rarely seen without a joke or a smile, Sisisky brightened a press box in he same way his voice lightened the airwaves. “More than a great sportscaster, Terry was a great human being,” Ridolphi said. “He was a credit

to his community, his profession and his family, and my deepest sympathies are extended to the latter.” For 15 years Sisisky was the voice of R-MC football and made an immediate impression on current head coach Pedro Arruza. “(Terry) was one of the first people that I met with when I started doing interviews,” Arruza said. “I just thought we had a really good

relationship. “I really enjoyed working with him. I always thought Terry was very passionate about what he was doing. Always really upbeat. Always fun to be around. Had a lot of energy. “That’s the way I’m always going to remember him,” Arruza said. “Just a fun guy to work with. A fun guy to be around.” Since becoming Sports Information Director at

Randolph-Macon in 2005, Chris Kilcoyne often worked closely with Sisisky. “I can’t tell you how much I’ve grown to love the guy over the last five years,” Kilcoyne said. “To know Terry is to love him. He cared so much about whatever game he was doing whether it be us, VCU or I think he did Little League baseball. He spent as much time with that as he did us or VCU.” And Sisisky’s dedication to his job was evident in the passion he showed during broadcast of whatever team he covered. “He was a die-hard Yellow Jacket fan,” Kilcoyne said. “He never went here but he lived and died with the team.” One lasting memory for Kilcoyne will be Sisisky’s 2008 broadcast of R-MC’s trip to rival Hampden-Sydney for a game that would decide the Old Dominion Athletic Conference championship. With 1:19 to play, the Tigers scored what appeared to be a go ahead touchdown only to have it called back on a holding penalty. On the next play R-MC’s Tristan Carr sacked H-SC quarterback Cory Sedlar, stripped the ball and ran it back 65-yards for a TD to cap the 31-21 Yellow Jacket win. “His call, when we did that fumble return for a touchdown that kind of sealed the game, I’ll never forget that,” Kilcoyne said. “I think people in Ashland heard him screaming he was so excited.”


Skills challenge hopes to be bigger draw Sun Mountain finals should be a fan favorite By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Before the professional golfers tee things up for a chance to win the Greater Richmond Golf Classic August 13-15 at Richmond Country Club, a select few will face a different kind of challenge. As the host site for the finals of the Sun Mountain Challenge, four of the Duramed FUTURE Tour’s top golfers will lead teams of local amateurs in an event organizers hope will quickly turn into a fan favorite. Last year RCC was host of the semifinals of the Sun Mountain Skills Challenge, but the event went largely unnoticed due to its newness. “Not enough people knew what it was last year,” said tournament director/RCC pro Matthew Schulze. This year publicity and public awareness should combine to create a festive atmosphere

In one of the highlight events of the Sun Mountain Skills Challenge, golfers must hit a shot over a wall. With local amateurs teamed along side the professionals this year, the wall may be lowered to six feet.

for the Challenge finals. “We think it will be really, really cool,” Schulze said. “It’s just a different dynamic to the event to do it at six o’clock on Thursday night before the tournament starts.”

The Sun Mountain Challenge runs throughout the course of the Duramed tour season, starting with over 30 professional golfers and gradually narrowing the field to four finalists. And those who

watched last year’s challenge semifinals will see a different dynamic with the championship because each of the four finalists will be teamed up with a group of four amateurs. Each team will make their

Classic provides opportunity for Hoopla 3 on 3 postponed due to high school golfers scorching temperatures When the Duramed FUTURES Tour comes to Richmond Country Club August 13-15 it will not only provide an opportunity to see some of the country’s best golfers but for some it will be chance to walk side by side with them. Volunteers comprise a majority of tournament work force, something that the event can always use more of. But some of the volunteers who enjoyed the experience the most during last year’s tournament were local high school golfers from Goochland, Douglas Freeman and St. Christopher’s. Last year between 20 and 30 of the high-schoolers spent the tournament working closely

with the professionals doing driving range maintenance, setting up practice balls or acting as standard bearers walking the course along side the professionals. Tournament Director and RCC pro Matthew Schulze said because of their involvement word has spread. “This year’s been kind of cool because we’ve gotten a lot of emails from parents saying, ‘I heard Jimmy from Freeman did this and my son wants to do it was well.’” High school golfers as well as adults looking to volunteer can email Matthew Schulze, mdspga@pga.com or call the Richmond Country Club Pro Shop at (804) 784-3120.

Due to scorching record temperatures forecasted for last weekend, the Allen, Allen, Allen & Allen Hoopla 3 on 3 basketball tournament scheduled for July 24-25 was postponed to October 9-10, 2010. “Given the forecasted record temperatures, we do not feel this tournament would offer the fun, friendly and, most importantly, safe atmosphere that we wish to provide our participants, volunteers and spectators,” said tournament director Megan Silva. All teams already registered for the tournament will be able to choose between one of two options: 1) Teams can remain registered for the tournament to be held on October 9-10, 2010,

or 2) Teams can receive a full refund and be removed from the tournament registration. Teams may also receive a full refund now and then re-register later if they choose. Online registration will remain available at www.sportsbackers.org until Wednesday, October 6 at 11:50 p.m. Team entry fees for the High School and Youth divisions are $80, and fees for the Adult and Elite divisions are $100. For more information or to register for the third annual Allen, Allen, Allen & Allen Hoopla 3 on 3 tournament on October 9-10, 2010, please visit www.sportsbackers. org. Sports Backers

way through five skill stations that will test their abilities. The stations include hitting a pitch shot, a chip shot, a bunker shot, and a putt before capping things off by attempting to hit the ball over a wall. The players will get three shots at each station and points are accessed on the best ball from each. “The amateurs hit the same shots as the girls,” Schulze said. “It’s a ‘Big Break’ type of scenario where essentially every station is a challenge.” Schulze said the exact specifications of the challenge have yet to be designated because they will want to access the abilities of the amateurs involved first. “That’s when I think it will get interesting is when we try to nail down what they’re going to do,” Schulze said. “The bunker shot’s not very easy- It’s not just one of those splash it up on the green a hope. You’ve got to hit it across 15 yards of grass before you get to the green. I’m not sure how that one’s going to change but it will make it fun.”

Even the wall, the best known feature of the challenge, may change. “The wall was eight feet last year but it might come down to six feet just because it will make it a little easier,” Schulze said. “Some of our tour players couldn’t hit it over the wall (last year). That’s the neat one because that the one they all see on TV. Everybody wants to do it but it can be a very embarrassing situation. “The whole idea is to make it a fun event,” Schulze said. “Golf is a fun thing. We don’t want somebody out there beating their brains in trying to hit it over a wall and they’re never going to be able to do it.” So far two of the four amateur teams have been taken up. One by tournament sponsor Eagle Construction and the other going to members of RCC. The final two teams are still up in the air. “We’ll let our members go first then if we can’t fill it up we’ll go outside and kind of see who wants to be part of it,” Schulze said.

Second annual Henricus Dauber Dash set for August 7 The second annual Henricus Dauber Dash, a 5-mile mud run through Henricus Historical Park and the Dutch Gap Conservation area, is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. on Saturday, August 7. Named for the Daubers that built the mud walls and houses at the settlement site 400 years ago, the run features a course that starts at the Citie of Henricus and goes around the trail loop of Dutch Gap. The course incorporates multiple obstacles including hay bales, a cargo net, a short trudge through the river, and a final mud pit at the finish line designed to challenge the participants.

There will also be a 1-mile Mud Guppies Kids Run for kids ages 8-14 at 11 a.m. This course features its own obstacles and finishes through the same mud pit as the adults. All participants will receive an event T-shirt and post-race food. Prizes will be awarded to overall male and female winners and to age group winners as well. There will also be awards for “Best Mud” and “Best Costume.” Online registration is available until Wednesday, August 5 at 11:59 p.m. The entry fee for the Henricus Dauber Dash is $30, and the entry fee for the Mud Guppies Kids Run is $10

Tuckahoe & Mechanicsville claim 9YO titles

By Jim Ridolphi Special Correspondent The Atlee Nationals entered the championship game of last week’s Atlee 9 Year Old Tournament with a 5-0 record, but couldn’t overcome a Tuckahoe team that also entered the contest undefeated to run away with a 13-6 win. “They were just better than us out there today,” said Atlee manager John Swierczewski. “They hit the ball when they needed to and made plays all over the field. They were the better team today. “I’m still proud of what these boys accomplished and they’ve got nothing to hang their heads about. They had a great tournament,” said Swierczewski, who also served as this year’s tournament director. Both teams endured eight days of 100 degree-plus temperatures to reach the finals. “The kids handled it pretty well and the parents made sure

they brought plenty of refreshments to keep them hydrated, but it has been very hot all week,” Swierczewski said. Tuckahoe jumped out to a quick 3-0 lead in the first inning but Atlee answered with two in the second. But the Nationals couldn’t keep up with the hitting barrage that followed by Tuckahoe. Nearby, the 9-year old girls softball championship was a barnburner featuring Mechanicsville and Atlee. Mechanicsville erased a two run deficit to tie the contest in the fourth inning and eventually pushed the winning run across for a 7-6 victory. Mechanicsville pitcher Victoria Bernardini worked her way through a final inning jam when Atlee loaded the bases with no outs, but couldn’t advance the tying runner. The two games marked the end of the annual event at the

The VSC 12U baseball teams will be holding tryouts for all positions during the month of August. The tryout will be held at Virginia Sports Complex.

Atlee Little League complex. Swierczewski said this year’s edition went off without a hitch, thanks to the dedicated work of numerous volunteers and parents. “We’re an all-volunteer organization, so they are the ones that make this whole thing happen. They dedicate countless hours to getting everything ready.” The director added that the tournament benefits from an enthusiastic group of parents. “We had great crowds here this year,” Swierczewski said. “The teams who came here brought large groups of supporters with them and that made a great atmosphere.” The championship games mark the end of the season for Swierczewski and the Little Leaguers, but does not represent much of a break for the long time coach.

The top finishers in area and regional qualifiers earn a guaranteed spot at the National Championship race. The amateur national qualifying program consists of 52 area qualifying races held from February through May and 12 regional championship races conducted in June at select motocross facilities across the country.

In their elimination round opener against Great Falls, Atlee exhausted the eligibility of their top two pitchers. Jack Dragum threw 70 pitches and Nick Zona closed the game with 56 pitches, burning them from throwing for the rest of the tournament. In the bottom of the seventh, with the game tied at three, Jack Chenault was walked then Zona got a hit.

On defense, center fielder Dalton Davis kept Great Falls from scoring the winning run from third base with laser throws to the plate. In the semi-finals Atlee got a rematch with DTQ, the only team to defeat them in pool play. Davis took the mound on his birthday, threw 77 pitches and Atlee led 8-4 when he left in the fifth inning. Adam Jewell closed out the 8-5 win for Atlee, but the team lost two more pitchers for the tournament. In the championship game against Dulles, Hunter Brooks made his first appearance on the mound. Brooks went 4 2/3 innings and threw 76 pitches in the 12-1 win. Jordan Thompson closed out the contest. Both Zona and Dragum hit home runs in the championship game.

Wallace uncaps Miller Lite promotion Contest at RIR will focus exclusively on local NASCAR fans By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Last week, NASCAR driver Rusty Wallace returned to victory lane at Richmond International Raceway. However, this time around the man, who ranks as the third alltime winner at Richmond with six victories, was not there to celebrate a race victory. Instead the former driver of the Miller Lite #2 car cruised into victory lane behind the wheel of a new white Ford Mustang as part of a promotional partnership between RIR and Loveland Distributing- a local distributor of Miller Lite and Miller-Coors. “It’s great to be back in victory lane,” Wallace said. “This is my seventh time tonight and I feel good about it. It’s really cool to see Miller back in Richmond. I won a lot of races here when Miller was the sponsor and it seems real appropriate that Miller’s back here.” Wallace, along with RIR President Doug Fritz and Mark Stepanian, president of Loveland Distributing, unveiled the Miller Lite Richmond Race Experience Sweepstakes. The contest is designed

Loretta Lynn’s is the event every motocross racer in the country wants to compete in,” said Event Director Tim Cotter. “A win at the Amateur Nationals gives a rider instant national notoriety and can serve as a springboard to a lucrative professional motocross career.” Most of America’s top professional motocrossers, including James Stewart, Ricky Carmichael, Travis Pastrana

to award local NASCAR fans an ultimate experience for the September 11 “One Last Race To Make The Chase.” Ten grand-prize winners will receive six tickets to the race, six admissions to the Miller Lite Tailgate and six Miller Lite hospitality passes. Fritz feels that the track has come up with the perfect partnership by joining with Miller Lite. “They’ve been involved with sports for a long, long time,” he said. “They’ve been involved in NASCAR for a long time. It’s just a great fit for them and a great fit for their products.” Stepanian agreed. “It didn’t make sense that our company, after being in business for 50 something years here in Richmond, and RIR with the biggest sporting event in the state of Virginia, didn’t have some kind of relationship. So with that, Doug and his team have been very accommodating in putting something together that we think is going to benefit race fans, our beer drinking customers and our retail partners. We think this partnership is going to be a longstanding win-win for all involved.” Wallace, who currently serves as a NASCAR commentator, appeared genuinely

pleased to be back at RIR. “I love Richmond’s race track,” he said. “You know when I first starting winning up here everything was sponsored by Miller. Then that arrangement went away for whatever reason and when I heard it was coming back, man I got pumped up about it. I won a lot of those 400s that Miller was sponsoring.” With making the promotional appearance in

Richmond, Wallace hopes to continue building the sport of NASCAR, something he feels not all of the current drivers are doing. “I think the drivers need to have pressure put on them to do what they need to do to make this sport grow,” he said. “I told them when I retired. I stood right over there in that tent and told them; ‘Let me tell you something guys, it’s a privilege to drive one of these

and Jeremy McGrath, have won AMA Amateur National Championships at Loretta Lynn’s. The race is so prestigious that last year, teenage stars Dean Wilson, from California, and Eli Tomac, from Colorado, were awarded premier professional contracts for the 2010 season. Franzen, a student at Lee -Davis High School, has been racing since she was six years old. With the help of sponsors such as Foley Motorsports of Mechanicsville, Franzen has

been given the opportunity to compete at both the regional and national level. This is Franzen’s third year to qualify and compete in the amateur nationals. She has been training rigorously at the Gary Bailey Motocross School in Axton, Virginia receiving personal instruction from Gary Bailey himself “The Professor” in preparation for this year’s event. In the last eight years Franzen has won over 100 plus races, 20 plus championships,

and competes nearly every weekend at various District 13 Virginia, Maryland, and North Carolina dirt bike tracks. Go to www.monsterracing24.com to view Dori’s finishes. For more information, please visit www.mxsports.com. Submitted by Robert Franzen

cars. It’s not like you’re doing anybody a favor. So if you get to this point, get to this level of NASCAR, you respect it and you work hard for it and you try to make it grow.’ “For the most part, most of them do it,” Wallace said. “There are some of them that are a little lazy, who just want to drive the car and go home, but other than that, most of them are doing a pretty good job.”

Wallace would not elaborate on which drivers he believes are not pulling their weight. It was also evident that there are at least a few regrets in the wake of Wallace’s retirement in 2005. “I miss driving that car so bad it’s stupid,” he said. “I don’t think there’s a race goes by where I watch something going on, when I yell, man I want to go down there and put my costume on and get back in that thing and go. There’s a lot of races I want to do that.” And though his son Steve now competes in NASCAR Wallace said it is difficult to live vicariously through him. “I have a lot of fun watching him but it’s not as much fun as when I was driving because it’s a lot of pressure and a lot of frustration.” To enter the Miller Lite Richmond Race Experience Sweepstakes, fans 21 years of age, or older must follow the entry instructions, which can be found at select Miller Lite retail locations throughout the Richmond region. Participants must be from the Richmond area and will have two ways to enter, via the official entry instructions at the Miller Lite retail location, through text messaging or standard U.S. mail.
