Mechanicsville’s Patrick Holler takes a moment to gather himself before getting the start in the state tournament. Though the youngest player on the team, Holler (Lee-Davis) turned in a solid performance that allowed American Legion Post 175 to advance with a 10-4 win over host Stafford. Mechanicsville battled through long days, heat and five games, but finished third in the state tournament. For more details turn to page 40 in Sports.

anover resident Curt Lovins was selected as one of 10 people recognized in a special feature in the August issue of The Family Handyman, read by 4.6 million people each month, to honor his prowess as a “DIYer” (Do It Yourselfer) involved in public service. “DIY is a way to provide a comfortable, safe and enjoyable home for those we love while saving money,” said Ken Collier, editor-in-chief, The Family Handyman. “For some, the spirit of helping others has not only fueled their passion for DIY, but has shaped their entire life. They’ve served our country, their local communities, their neighbors and the needy, at home and abroad. We thought it was important to highlight some of these stories in The Family Handyman.” Lovins, who served 20 years in the Marines, is a fulltime firefighter for Henrico County and an avid volunteer with his church, the local YMCA, Habitat for Humanity, and the rest of his community, including friends, family and neighbors. From his time spent serving others, Lovins’ most inspirational experience occurred while he was working on small goodwill projects in West Africa as a Marine. “One time we were moving heavy furniture out of hospital rooms, and, despite being seriously ill, the patients

“I like the sense of accomplishment that goes along with doing it myself,” he said. “My favorite DIY project is a covered rear porch/patio that I transformed into an office. I jackhammered the concrete slab and did it all myself.” For additional DIY tips, stories and more, visit www. familyhandyman.com.

WATER Continued from pg. 1 

about 10 women, mostly aged 40 to 60, stretch, kick, punch, dance, jog, cycle and surf underwater during a one-hour workout filled with laughter and beach music once a week during the summer. “It’s so much fun. It’s good for you, and you can’t hurt yourself,” Dodd said, adding that it’s a lot more fun to do water aerobics with other people. Claire McBride said, “I love

it. It’s good exercise, and we laugh a lot.” She said many of the women met during Bible study classes. Barbara Wilkins has participated for about six years along with her teenage daughters. “They used to tease me that it was an old lady thing, but now they hate to miss it,” she said. On a recent sunny morning, the women went from throwing underwater karate kicks and punches to Zumba dancing to Rockette-style leg kicks all timed to the beat

of “New York, New York,” “Hot, Hot, Hot,” “Under the Boardwalk,” “Splish, Splash, I Was Taking a Bath,” “Surfing USA,” and other lighthearted summertime tunes. Each participant pays $55 each summer to cover the cost of instructor Diane Weinstein, who has taught water aerobics at the University of Richmond, Kings Charter and Burkwood Swim & Racquet Club. Weinstein said the workout burns about 400 calories an hour. “The water provides resis-

tance, and no matter what you do, it works,” Weinstein said. “It’s especially good if you have any ailment such as arthritis or you’re recovering from surgery or broken bones.” By the end of the workout, they had stretched and exercised every muscle in their bodies at their own pace, and there wasn’t anyone who wasn’t smiling. They all agreed that the workout is beneficial in terms of building stamina, but especially in terms of growing friendships and having fun.

Not to be used for identification purposes Back in the “old days” (code for my youth), there wasn’t a rush to obtain a social security card — until you were approaching the age of 16 and the opportunity presented itself to become a licensed driver. It was just before “Sweet 16” arrived that I made the obligatory trip to the Social Security Office in my hometown. That was when downtown meant something more than the name of a Petula Clark song. (That’s today’s quiz for those under 40. Look her up.) Once that card was in your hands, it was like a magic wand swept over and you had officially entered the adult world. At least that was the feeling at the idea of sliding behind the wheel of a car and hitting the open road. OK, maybe it wasn’t so open, but the days of riding the school bus were a thing of the past. Anyway, those nine numbers have taken on a life of their own these days. OK, it’s understandable that your employer needs those numbers — we’re paying into the system (with the dream of actually getting something in return someday). But, for several years, those nine numbers — especially the last four — readily verify who we claim we are in dealing with service providers. A recent issue with a utility started with the automated system and my options to continue with the call. Now, when numbers are involved, I’m lucky to remember phone numbers (due in part to “Contacts” lists in SmartPhones). So, it’s a given I have no idea what my account number is. That’s why I have to run those nine numbers through my head so many times — because the final four will give you access to the world you need. The amusing part of all this is the fact that the card states “Not to be used for identification purposes.” Really?!

Etc. ☞ As was promised when we first mentioned a page devoted to recipes, I’ve spotlighted my mother’s meat loaf today. Hope you enjoy it. Melody Kinser

Henry District fortunate to have Sean Davis as representative The residents of the Henry District in Hanover County are very fortunate to have Sean Davis representing us on the Hanover County Board of Supervisors. He is a man of action and gets things done. I have been living next to a half burned down garage for almost four and a half years. The neighbors and my family have had to look at it each day. I have contacted “12 On Your Side,” written letters to the county building inspector, but no one followed through to see the problem resolved. I contacted Mr. Davis and things started to happen. Mr. Davis has called me several times, keeping me advised of what was being done on this problem. As of this writing (July 27, 2012), the garage has been torn down and is no longer an eyesore for the neighborhood. All I can say is, “Thank you, Sean Davis,” the man of action. Charles Paulus Mechanicsville

Congratulating writer for stand on Obama’s term and policies I would like to congratulate one of your recent letter writers, LaToya Brown, on an intelligent and well thought out letter about the failures of Barack Obama. Usually with the least little criticism of Obama, we are pounced on by the liberal media and called racists. Fortunately, they can’t do that to LaToya Brown, who is of the same race as President Obama. Unlike many in the African-American community, Ms. Brown is not influenced by skin color but by the horrendously bad and destructive policies that she has seen Obama put forth in his first three and a half years in office. Can you imagine the catastrophe he will bring on our country if he is re-elected and does not have to stand for reelection and answer to the American people again? Remember when he whispered to the Russian president that when he is re-elected he will be able to make more deals with the Russians? Ms. Brown talks about all the failed promises of Barack Obama but even worse than his failed promises are the promises that he has kept. He promised a new health care system and he kept that promise, giving us government-run, terribly expensive ObamaCare with death panels, less choices and inferior health care.

He promised to let gays openly serve in the military and he kept that promise with the result that our military has been greatly weakened and the morale is at an all-time low as is the enlistments and re-enlistments. He promised us that every woman would be able to get free or affordable methods and procedures for abortion and he has kept that promise too. Now any woman has the affordable means to murder her baby any time she wants, resulting in more thousands of precious pre-born babies being killed every year. It must break the heart of God and His beloved Son, Jesus Christ, to see so many of His beautiful children brutally destroyed through abortion. The recent extreme heat wave and violent storms, with millions losing their power and the many floods and fires throughout the country . . . Do you think God is trying to get our attention or punish us because of our wickedness and sinfulness, especially that of the murder of innocent children through abortion? I could go on and on but Ms. Brown’s letter says it so much better. Ms. Brown says at the beginning of her letter, as I say at the end of my recent letter, “Wake up, America.” And how important that command is. For, if we don’t wake up and stop Obama in his tracks, we could wind up like one of the Socialist, bankrupt European countries or, even worse, like one of the Marxist, people-enslaving countries of the Communist world. I pray that every fair-minded and right-thinking American like LaToya brown, whether white or black, Democrat or Republican, conservative or liberal, will wake up and realize what peril our beloved country is in under Obama and especially if he is re-elected in November. We all need to determine with all of our strength to get out and vote this president out of office for the survival of our great country. I say again, loud and clear along with LaToya Brown, “Wake up, America.” Raymond C. Germeroth Mechanicsville see LETTERS, pg. 7

LETTERS Continued from pg. 6 

Thanks to the ACLU, People for the American Way, Planned Parenthood and other radical leftist organizations, this is no longer the America our Founders envisioned. From their earliest days, radical leftist organizations knew that a tectonic shift toward socialist, ultraliberal and extremist ideologies could not take place while America’s pulpits were “aflame with righteousness.” Their strategy: Snuff out the flame’s influence little by little . . . gradually . . . almost imperceptibly . . . ultimately silencing people of faith in the public square . . . and all the while indiscernibly changing the course of the nation. Eventually the tectonic shift took place – and now Americans are looking back and wondering what happened! This is not the America our Founders gave us. The fact is, America’s greatness has always been rooted in the fundamental values taught from America’s pulpits. If pulpits are silent, the church is silent. Silencing people of faith in the public square has always been the goal of the ACLU and other liberal “progressive” groups. There are more than 160,000 churches in America that are the kind of impactful, engaged church bodies that the ACLU, People for the American Way and other radical groups have attempted to silence on the key issues of the day. We need to unleash these pastors and church leaders to boldly speak the truth to this generation . . . get them and their congregations to engage in political processes . . . confront the social tectonic shift in America . . . and get every believer to the polls this November.

For more information, call 804-5594644. The MDA camp is a weeklong event for children that have Muscular Dystrophy. It is a chance for the children to get together and meet other children and have fun for a week. There are lots of activities they are able to enjoy that week that are not available to them otherwise. Participants said one of the most favorite things is their time at the pool. For most children, time at the pool is fun but many can enjoy it all summer long where many kids with Muscular Dystrophy only have that week. With that in mind, the sponsors decided to sponsor a Swimathon to help raise money to send kids to camp for the week.

A young bride, with no cooking skills, takes mom’s tips By Hazel M. Kinser for The Mechanicsville Local (Editor’s note: A chance encounter in a Mechanicsville restaurant led to the development of this page devoted to readers’ recipes. That conversation was about meat loaf. As promised at that time, managing editor Melody Kinser now shares her mother’s meat loaf recipe. Hazel M. Kinser knew very little about cooking when she married in 1951. Her recipe collection and her skills in the kitchen have expanded greatly throughout the years.

Every time I make one for a church dinner or for our consumption, it goes very quickly. I would suggest that mashed potatoes and peas are great dishes with this meat loaf. Do save some for a great lunch sandwich the next day!

Bon Secours offers an affinity group for military employees and partners with the Department of Defense to offer specialized employee assistance programming. Training is provided to managers of service members on how to effectively and compassionately assist during the transition from military to civilian work. “The stress of deployment can really weigh on a service member, and knowing that Bon Secours is there to support me and my family is a blessing,” said Patrick Thornton, a surgical assistant who served with the U.S. Navy Reserves in Iraq. “My transition was almost seamless. My supervisor even gave me back the exact same shift that I had when I left.” For the duration of a deployment, Bon Secours maintains full employee medical benefits, waiving employee contributions. Bon Secours extends time off for service members, and children of deployed military are welcome to continue in Bon Secours employee childcare services. “Our supportive culture and comprehensive benefits program meet the work and family

needs of transitioning military employees and their families,” said Jim Godwin, vice president of human resources for Bon Secours Virginia Health System. “Employees with military experience represent the best of Bon Secours, and it is our honor to support them as they transition back to civilian life.” Bon Secours has become an employer of choice for the armed forces.

‘Hey, man, you should post your video on this website because I think a lot of people would be inspired by it,’ ” Dennehy said. “So, I did -- and an hour after I posted it, it got up to the top.” Dennehy performs with his

feet by strumming the guitar as it lies on the floor below him. Most describe his guitar playing as simply astounding, saying that he plays the guitar far better than most people who have two arms. Dennehy’s musical gifts don’t stop with his guitar playing. He has a talent for singing

and looks to a future in the music industry. His video going viral was just the start to a music career that Dennehy needed. His video was featured as video of the day on AOL.com and SportsIllustrated.com. He was featured on websites around the world, including newspapers in

Australia, Greece, Canada and the Huffington Post. He’s trending worldwide on Twitter and doing online interviews with websites such as whatstrending. com and rightthisminute.com. “I guess a lot of people just saw it from there (on Reddit). I don’t know. It just happened,” Dennehy said. “Websites everywhere were just grabbing it.” He is a frequent guitarist in the Worship Band at The Church on the Avenue in Richmond and he also plays at many churches in the Richmond area and at the Ashland Farmer’s Market. He’s soon set to perform on a much bigger stage. A few months ago, Dennehy auditioned for and competed in Richmond’s Got Talent. He won and many are encouraging the 18 year-old to try out for next season’s hit television program, America’s Got Talent. However, his biggest honor to date came last week when a member of the American Rock Band “The Goo Goo Dolls” contacted him and asked if he

He does have interviews scheduled with radio and television shows. He said a TV crew from Romania is coming to Virginia in a few weeks to film him for a program. Then, he will travel to Romania to fin-

ish the show and perform. An aspect that makes Romania so special is that Dennehy was born there and adopted as a young child. So, the visit to his native land will provide him the opportunity to connect with his biological family after 17 years . “It’s awesome and it’s more than I could ever dream of happening in a few short days,” Dennehy said. “It’s very overwhelming and just crazy.” For now, Dennehy said he is staying grounded and thankful for everyone in the Ashland community that has supported him along the way. “Thank you to everyone for posting and sharing my video on Facebook or Twitter,” Dennehy said. “It’s awesome and I want to make this town proud.”

To make a long story short, two hours later I left with a new crown designed and fabricated on site with the latest technology. The Marks get high marks from me.

Former CMS teacher takes part in classroom crime scene program Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com Jana Burch, former Gifted and Talented Resource Teacher at Chickahominy Middle School, recently was an instructor at the University of Connecticut’s premiere summer conference for educators. Burch, along with Dave McGann and Kevin Simms, presented “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation in the Classroom” at Confratute, the week-long summer program hosted by the University of Connecticut. “My students were always interested in solving problems and mysteries. CSI is popular with people of all ages . . . the proof is the number of television shows and books dedicated to this subject,” Burch said. “But in the classroom, you can’t just bring popular topics without a strong connection to what you want the students to learn. Math and science skills are a part of the CSI lessons we wrote for Confratute, but we add to that the opportunity for students to use 21st Century Thinking Skills such as critical thinking, creative thinking, collaboration and communication.

“I knew that CSI was interesting to middle school students and that the television shows were popular with every age group, but I was really pleased to see the teachers in my class getting into it .” JANA BURCH Instructor, University of Connecticut

It is a pretty all encompassing curricular tool.” Burch said the teachers attending her class surprised her with their enthusiasm. “I knew that CSI was interesting to middle school students and that the television shows were popular with every age group, but I was really pleased to see the teachers in my class getting into it. They analyzed crime scenes, fingerprints, and DNA with intensity. I think they enjoyed it as much as my students at CMS did. That makes me happy because I know these teachers understand how important engagement is for learners, no matter what the topic is, and will take that back to their classrooms.” For the past 35 years, Storrs, Conn., has attracted more than

20,000 educators worldwide for a highly acclaimed, enrichment-based program sponsored by the Neag Center for Gifted Education and Talent Development. The week-long program is geared toward providing educators with research-based practical strategies for engagement and enrichment learning for all students, as well as meeting the needs of gifted and talented students. Attended by more than 600 educators from across the U.S. and 15 countries around the world, this year’s Confratute was a blending of educators interested in gifted education, differentiation of instruction and curriculum, and creativity and innovation in education. Confratute, founded in

July 1978 by Neag School of Education professor Joseph Renzulli, is the longest-running summer institute of its kind in gifted education. Through exposure to differentiation, talent development and enriching learning experiences, the community of adult learners is able to share similar interests, as well as foster professional growth. “A unique part of the Confratute concept is that it is more than a summer course, more than formal instruction, for it is a careful blend of a conference and an institute with a good deal of fraternity in the middle,” Dr. Sally M. Reis, institute director, said. “Confratute is total immersion and involvement in enrichment, teaching and learning,” she said. “It is the excitement

of new ideas, the satisfaction of hard work, the joy of creating and producing and the happiness that comes from making new friends, having fun and learning a little bit more about themselves.” The informal learning environment provided in more than 50 hands-on class strands fuels interaction between passionate participants, keynoters and faculty members alike.

Dr. Reis attributes much of the program’s success to the enthusiastic and dedicated participants who collectively have brought thousands of years of diverse experience in education. It is the acknowledgement and celebration of differences that make Confratute so memorable and special. For more information on the program, visit http://www. gifted.uconn.edu/confratute/.

McGhee hosts Ag Expo in Hanover Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com About 1,800 farmers, agriculture industry professionals and interested parties gathered on Thursday, Aug. 2, at the 2012 Virginia Ag Expo at Chuck McGhee’s Grainfield Farm in Hanover County. This year’s theme, “Virginia Agriculture: Rich in History — Focused on the Future,” served as a reminder for members “to reflect on our achievements and successes,

while being mindful of how innovation can ensure our future success.” The event included the latest farm equipment, seed demonstration plots and the newest in agriculture technology. As Virginia’s largest producer event, the Ag Expo provides educational opportunities and serves as an essential networking tool. Growers and consumers have the opportunity to discuss and learn more about available services and products.

‘Are You Ready?’ training offered If disaster strikes, are you and your family ready? Hanover County is offering a series of free Community Disaster Preparedness Training Classes called “Are You Ready?” The next class will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 12, at the Mechanicsville Library at 7431 Sherwood Crossing Place in Mechanicsville. The two-hour program will help you to have an awareness of what to do and how to be

informed about hazards and emergencies that may affect you and your family if there is a disaster. It will focus on how you and your family can become self reliant for three days by getting a kit, making a plan, and staying informed. Representatives from the Sheriff ’s Office, Fire/EMS, the Health Department, Social Services, Public Schools and Public Information present the free program. To sign up, call 804-365-4822.

“It is important to showcase and support the strength of Virginia agriculture and its crucial role in our lives. The Virginia Ag Expo allows the opportunity for anyone to experience the fun and complexity of providing food, feed, and fuel. America enjoys the safest, most abundant food supply in the world thanks to our producers, our technologies and our industry innovation. That is something to be celebrated.” said Phil Hickman, president of the Virginia Grain Producers Association.

Hanover Cares has online survey Hanover Cares (the former I CARE Coalition) is conducting an online survey of Hanover County residents between 18 and 24 years old. The survey seeks information on general patterns of alcohol use, the perception of risk of drinking and of driving after drinking, and the availability of alcohol. The survey, completely anonymous, is part of the Virginia Strategic Prevention

Framework State Incentive Grant (SPF SIG) received by Hanover Cares earlier this year. The grant hopes to reduce motor vehicle crashes involving alcohol and drivers who are 15 to 24 years old. The first 300 responses will be entered into a random drawing for an iPad3. Go to www.surveymonkey.com/s/HanoverYAS or the Hanover Cares web page at www.hanover-cares.org.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, if you haven’t done so already, plan a trip to somewhere for a respite from the grind. Try to book something that is outside of your comfort zone.

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 There’s more than meets the eye to a particular situation, but you seem biased, Libra. Consider all sides of the situation before you decide which side you’re on.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 There is no easy way around the work you have to get done, Capricorn, but there are plenty of helpers who may be able to pitch in and lend a hand.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, it’s difficult when you feel like you’re being pulled in too many directions. This may require sitting down and making a priority list to get started.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, your energy is infectious and many people notice how well you keep going when others will simply tire out. You’ll need that energy for work this week, too.

SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 It’s finally time for you to relax, Scorpio. After weeks of running here and there, you now have the opportunity to simply kick up your feet and enjoy yourself.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Stop looking to others for solutions to your problems, Aquarius. The only one who is qualified to handle them is you and possibly a spouse or romantic partner.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Don’t try to mask your emotions this week, Gemini. It is OK if others see the truth about how you feel. Let others explore the honesty in your expression and actions.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, a big opportunity comes your way that you shouldn’t pass up. Resist the urge to point out all of the negatives and focus only on the positives for the time being.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 What you may view as some innocent comments could be viewed much differently from someone else, Sagittarius. It’s better to censor yourself when you can.

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, this week you feel like you’re walking around on a cloud. But you know well you have everything handled.

The Mechanicsville Lions Club recently prepared eyeglasses for recycling. Members shipped more than 200 used eyeglasses to the Lions Club Recycling Center in Roanoke. At the Recycling Center, Lions Club volunteers clean, sort by prescription, strengthen and package the glasses for distribution to people in need in developing countries. According to the World Health Organization, 153 mil-

lion people have uncorrected refractive errors (near-sightedness, far-sightedness or astigmatism). Most of these vision impairments are quickly diagnosed and easy to treat with corrective lenses. Still, millions of people in developing nations are pushed deeper into poverty simply because they don’t have glasses. They can’t learn, because reading is difficult. They can’t work to the best of their ability, because they can’t see clearly. In addition to eyeglass recycling, the Mechanicsville Lions

Club provides assistance to persons in need of glasses in the Mechanicsville area. The club expects to recycle about 2,000 pairs of glasses collected in Mechanicsville this year. The main collection box is located at the Mechanicsville Drug Store with other boxes thru out the area. Club members extend their thanks to “all those persons donating used glasses.” For more information on Mechanicsville Lions club activities, call president Eugene Truitt at 804-746-4734.

In 1768, Patrick Henry defended three preachers who faced imprisonment for publicly proclaiming the Gospel at the Upper Spotsylvania Meeting House. His defense helped paved the way for the passage of Virginia’s Statute for Religious Freedom. Freedom’s Apostles is a reenactment of Henry’s defense of the Baptists.

Offensive mechanics falter on state road

www.mechlocal.com See slideshow online! Photos by Charlie Leffler The Local

After suffering their first loss of the season in the American Legion state tournament, Mechanicsville Post 175 was forced to alter their pitching plans. Patrick Holler, above left, Cam Maxey, center, and Chop Pulisic, above right, stepped in to fill the void despite having seen little to no time on the mound all season.

With pitchers still in the tank, bats prove Post 175’s undoing By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com STAFFORD— When the Mechanicsville Post 175 baseball team lost in their second game of the American Legion state tournament traditional strategy went out the window. Suddenly the road to the state championship detoured from a smooth run of one afternoon game over four days to an erratic, sleep depraved, rough ramble of double-headers in which the team needed to win seven games to take the title. It was a route that proved most teams did not have enough pitching to complete the journey. And while it could be said

40

that Mechanicsville switched to alternative fuels to reach their destination, they still came up short of their ultimate goal. Yet, Post 175’s inability to reach the championship game was not due to the pitching tank reaching empty. Some may find fault in the fact that Coach Eddie Gates never once used ace pitcher James Walsh during the five-game run, but that blame would be ill-placed. It was not pitching that did Mechanicsville in. Instead it was the mechanics of the vehicle that carried them to a 23-0 start- offense- which broke down along the way. Throughout the season, Mechanicsville went with a regular rotation of pitchers, Michael Thomas, Chris Childress and James Walsh. Thomas opened the state tour-

The Mechanicsville Local August 8, 2012

nament against Manassas Post 158 and came away with a 122 win in 8-innnings, thanks largely to the bats coming alive late in the game. Childress took the mound in the second day of action, facing off against a Lynchburg Post 16 team that went on to win the title. Childress struggled and Lynchburg took advantage, handing Post 175 their first loss of the season 10-4. “We had probably our worst game of playing all year,” Gates said. “We’re just not used to it.” It was the fewest runs Mechanicsville scored in a regulation game all season. (Post 175 defeated Post 137 21 but the game went in the books after six innings due to weather.) “I don’t know,” Gates said. “Key situation, people that nor-

mally hit aren’t hitting it. I don’t know if they’re pressing or not sure. Usually we hit.” The loss sent Post 175 to the losers’ bracket and Coaches Hank Parsley, Bobby White and Gates into an extended strategy session. With the remaining path to the championship extended from two games to five, Mechanicsville went from needing 18 innings of pitching to needing 45 innings of mound work to claim the title. Therefore, the coaches needed to find a way to best utilize their arms. For the team, it really didn’t matter how many games they won along the way if they did not claim a state championship. “Pretty much,” said pitcher Cam Maxey. “We feel like we’ve got something to prove and we don’t want to go out second.”

After having seen most of the teams play, the coaches opted to hold Walsh for a possible Friday rematch against Lynchburg. “We just kind of threw it together and we said, to win this we’ve got to save a starter for a big game,” Gates said. Less than 12 hours after the loss, Mechanicsville returned to action in the blistering morning heat to face host Stafford Post 290 on their home field. Patrick Holler got his second start of the season and did his job well, holding Stafford to three runs over seven innings of work. “Patrick, he pitched the best game I’ve seen him pitch since last year,” Gates said. “He played his heart out. He wanted to stay here another game.” But once again it appeared

Mechanicsville left their bats at home. Going into the bottom of the seventh, Post 175 trailed 3-1 and appeared to have no chance of escaping a second consecutive loss. But Mechanicsville got a monumental boost when Stafford pulled starting pitcher Hunter Kohn and it was evident they had no one left in reserve. Post 175 sent 13 batters to the plate in the bottom of the seventh, scoring nine runs, not so much on their hitting but on Stafford inability to pitch. After Thomas led off with a single, Post 290 walked four consecutive batters to tie the game 3-3. With one out they walked in another run to give Mechanicsville the lead. Following a RBI hit from Post 175, Stafford walked see BATS, pg. 41 `


Mechanicsville 9-10 fall short in regional By Dave Lawrence For The Mechanicsville Local Mechanicsville National’s Bryce Jones opened the final inning of the team’s appearance in the 2012 Tournament of State Champions with a triple, but three successive batters could not help him get home. Unfortunately for the 9-10 year old Little League squad, they could get no further, either, in the tournament held at Mitch Stadium in CeredoKenova, W.Va., as Jones represented the tying run. Instead, they fell to the team from South Carolina 5-4 in an extra-

inning tournament semifinal last Tuesday. “We had a couple of opportunities to really shut the thing down,” said Mechanicsville coach Mark Jones. “We just fell a little short.” The team had shown tremendous resilience through the district and state tournaments as well as during the pool play of the Tournament of State Champions, a regional contest that included teams from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee and West Virginia. But this time, mistakes they usually bounced

back from caught up with them. “They came at timely points in the game,” Jones said. “You’ve got to give South Carolina credit, they capitalized on a lot of our mistakes.” Mechanicsville errors led to three of South Carolina’s runs – one in the second inning and two in the sixth. Other mistakes led to the winning run in the seventh. South Carolina outfielder Matthew West opened the seventh with a single down the left field line. He advanced to second on a passed ball, to third

on a wild pitch, and scored one out later on a fielder’s choice. South Carolina loaded the bases, but Mechanicsville’s defense stiffened up to prevent any more damage and leave the top of the seventh with a fighting chance. And Bryce Jones looked poised to at least even things up. But a strikeout and two groundouts later, he was headed for the dugout rather than home plate. South Carolina was led by catcher Clate Pendergrass, who went 3-for-4 with two RBI, and West, who went 2-for-3 with

two runs scored. Second baseman Ross McCurley had a hit with two RBI. Mechanicsville had the only extra-base hits. In addition to pitcher/shortstop Bryce Jones’ triple, catcher Carter Trice hit two doubles and second baseman/pitcher Connor Sorokowski had another. First baseman Tyler Warren went 2for-4 with two runs scored. South Carolina went on to face Florida, a juggernaut who had beaten every other team it faced in the tournament by no less than nine runs, in the tournament championship

Wednesday. Florida won 14-3. While disappointed by the loss, the Mechanicsville team has had a lot to be grateful for – like their defense. “Our ability to make plays in the field, I wasn’t sure we were going to be able to do in the beginning,” Mark Jones said. “Over the course of the district, state, and regional tournaments, … we turned doubledigit double plays throughout our 18 games, which I thought was pretty impressive.” Jones had a good stable of pitching to draw from, too.

BATS

Lowry felt the offense would eventually come. “We always have confidence in the bats because they can’t completely disappear, but we were pressing for a little bit.” Johansen agreed. “The batsthey’ve got to come, that’s it one way or the other.” Gates felt that if his team could get deep into any opponent’s pitching they could take advantage. At the same time, he did not want opponents wearing out what pitching he had. A shortened game against Stafford would have also saved arms. “We were thinking we could get these guys and maybe go seven innings with them. It didn’t work out that way,” Gates said. “We saved James. We had to throw some wrinkles into the pitching staff, which this wrinkle worked. The next one? We’re going to see what happens.” Mechanicsville got a sixand-one-half hour break before they were due back at the field to face Vienna Post 180 and implement the next wrinkle in their pitching plan. Cam Maxey not only got his first start of the year, due to tendinitis, but saw his first extensive action since the

high school season ended. He admittedly started shaky and Post 175 gave up six runs in the first two innings. But Maxey rebounded and Mechanicsville held Vienna scoreless for the remainder of the game. The question was, if they could generate enough offense to pull out the win. The Mechanicsville bats appeared to have returned when they scored three runs in the bottom of the first inning, but other than a solo home run by Lowry in the third, Post 175 was ineffective at the plate over the next three innings of work. In the bottom of the fifth, Mechanicsville produced enough offense to tie the game 6-6, allowing Gate to implement further pitching strategy when Maxey began to tire. Right fielder Chop Pulisic, who had not pitched all season, came to the mound in relief. In the top of the seventh, that strategy looked as if it would backfire when Post 175 faced a one-out, bases loaded situation. But Pulisic struck out a batter on a 3-2 count then got the next batter to fly out to center to escape. Pulisic then did an equally impressive job in the seventh. When Mitch Keeler’s sacri-

fice pushed Post 175 ahead in the bottom of the eighth, Allen Ellis came to the mound to seal the win. Gates could not have been more proud of the performance by his substitute pitchers. “Patrick- great job today, super job,” he said. “Cam- hadn’t thrown but an inning or two all year, comes in and throws five or six innings- Super job. Chop- he hasn’t pitched this year- Just absolutely great.” However, Gates was still concerned with his offense despite getting the win. “Our sticks haven’t been hitting in situations,” he said. “You get people on second-third with one out and ground the ball somewhere short so the runner can’t score? It’s situation. It’s being smart up there at the plate and knowing what your purpose is at that particular time. A couple times tonight we didn’t have a purpose.” On Friday morning, Mechanicsville once again returned to the field less than 12 hours after they left, knowing they would have to face Albemarle then Lynchburg to force a championship deciding game the following day. Gates stuck with his plan to hold Walsh for a meeting with

Lynchburg and started Pulisic against Post 74 Albemarle. While a disastrous fourth inning on defense ceded seven runs to Albemarle, it was the lack of offense that proved Post 175’s undoing. Once again they were limited to four runs and saw their season end in a second 10-4 loss. Facing insurmountable odds, the Mechanicsville

coaches did what they needed to do to stay alive. While choices made throughout the tournament may have created setbacks, the decision to save Walsh was the right choice to make.

in yet another run for a 6-3 Mechanicsville lead. Back-to-back doubles drove in four more and Stafford only escaped further damage due to a base-running miscue by Mechanicsville. Bryan Johansen made a rare appearance on the mound in relief and did his job well, allowing Post 175 to claim a 10-4 win. “I’m just trying to help out the other relievers because you can’t burn the pitching and I’m not a key guy,” he said. “I’m just trying to eat innings so these guys can take a break and we can make a run at this.” Gates knew his team was very fortunate to stay alive after their offensive performance. “We’re struggling,” he said. “The bats are not here. The bats have not made an appearance yet so we’re just scratching right now.” But playing in survive and advance mode, Mechanicsville did what they needed to do to stay alive. “A win’s a win that’s how you’ve got to look at it right now in a one game elimination,” said Bryant Lowry. “Anything gets the job done.”

Tigers and Yellow Jackets top ODAC poll

File photos by Charlie Leffler/The Local

Local players will make impact on league this season By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com In a poll of league coaches, longtime rivals HampdenSydney and Randolph-Macon came out on top in the 2012 ODAC preseason football poll. H-SC edged R-MC in points 46to-44 and first place votes 4-to3. Washington and Lee received 37 points and one first place vote while Bridgewater picked up 32 points. Emory & Henry and Catholic came in fifth and sixth while Guilford and league newcomer Shenandoah tied for seventh with 11 points each. HAMPDEN-SYDNEY (83, 5-1 ODAC) will attempt to become the first ODAC team to win back-to-back league titles since Bridgewater claimed five straight from 2001-05. The

Tigers’ only suffered one league loss last year but it came in the regular season finale at the hands of Randolph-Macon. “We’ve got a balanced league and picked to finish first I guess the bulls eye is on us again,” said H-SC head coach Marty Favret. “But we’re excited for a lot of different reasons.” H-SC comes into the 2012 season having lost some of the top names in program history to graduation- All-American’s Ben Rogers (OL) and Kyle Vance (WR) along with All-ODAC players Kirk Rohle (RB), Travis Lane (QB) and Sean Cavanagh (WR) are all gone. But the Tigers got a monumental boost when sophomore quarterback Nash Nance made the rare decision to leave a BCS Division I program for Division III, transferring from the University of Tennessee to Hampden-Sydney. “I knew it was going to be a rare thing and there’s probably

going to be a big bulls eye on my head,” Nash said. Favret believes Nash will be the focus of attention fans and opponents alike. “Having Nash come in from an SEC school, there’s going to be a lot of buzz around the Tigers this year,” Favret said. “We’re excited to see what he’s all about.” Despite the accolades, Nash does not come into the season as a guaranteed lock for the quarterback slot and could face notable competition from freshman standout Kyle Farlow who is the grandson of NASCAR’s Richard Petty. Though Rogers and Rohle are gone, Hanover County will continue to play a huge role in the Tigers’ success this season. Senior offensive lineman Tyler White (Atlee), senior linebacker Kenny Fryman (Hanover) and

junior safety Steven Fogleman (Hanover) have all been named team captains. Senior halfback John Michael Sparagna (Atlee) played a big role in last year’s success but it is local sophomores that could have the biggest impact this year. Defensive back Shreve Rohle (Hanover) and linebacker Josh Doggett (Atlee) will take on more substantial roles with the Tigers’ defense this season. Likewise safety Kamron White (Atlee) and defensive lineman Michael Bazemore (Atlee) will also be in the mix. Freshman offensive lineman Todd Edstrom (Hanover) also joins the Tigers this season. “I can’t think of Hanover without thinking of Ben Rogers and Kirk Rohle and of course what they’ve mean to our pro-

gram over the last four years and just what extraordinary guys they are,” Favret said. “But the torch is being passed to the Steven Foglemen’s and Kenny Fryman’s and they’re terrific football players.” H-SC returns six starters on offense and seven defensive starters from a season ago. Fryman led the team with 102 tackles, 15 tackles for a loss and 2.5 sacks last year. Fogleman, who missed most of last season due to injury, returns after being second on the team with 92 tackles as a sophomore. Hampden-Sydney opens their season at Averett on Sept. 1. RANDOLPH-MACON (82, 4-2) comes into 2012 with a lot of momentum after the young team knocked off rival Hampden-Sydney in the sea-

son finale. The Yellow Jackets steadily improved as the season progressed and were possibly the best team in the country not to make the playoffs last year. In his first year of college football, quarterback Zac Naccarato threw for 2,105 yards, 14 passing touchdowns and had six rushing TDs to earn ODAC Rookie of the Year honors. With eight returning starters on both offense and defense, and a year of seasoning, Naccarato should be even better in 2012. “We have a good mix of guys coming back, a lot of veterans that have started and played a lot of minutes and a mix of young football players that we’re really excited about,” said R-MC head coach Pedro Arruza. “We have 24 seniors back again this year so we feel see ODAC, pg. 43 `

like we’re in a pretty good place as a program.” Seasoned veterans, running back Drake Sanders, wide receiver Luke Sellars, halfback Vance Hendren, tight ends Dan Crouch and Zach Midulla, all seniors, return along with junior wideout Christian Cook. With 24 career starts, senior O-lineman Bryan Overstreet (Patrick Henry) has more experience than any other member of the offense. Senior Jordan Zentz will also be back on the line. The experienced defense boasts junior linebacker Abel Simpson, who was the teams’ second leading tackler a season ago while senior cornerback Brandon Harrison, who has 30 career starts, tied with junior safety Andrew Leonard for third most tackles on the squad. Linebacker David Fetter (Lee-Davis) was a powerful force last season as was Billy Knarr at safety. Ian Candelaria has 18 career starts on the defensive line and defensive tackle Cross Trued nine. All are seniors. Senior kicker Josh Storm comes into the season as one of the best in the nation. Storm

“I was a little nervous that we could pitch deep into the fourth, fifth and sixth innings with a lot of our pitchers,” Jones said. “We did that repeatedly.” Finally, he was happy with Mechanicsville’s offense. “I thought our guys top to bottom had some really clutch hits,” said Jones. “A lot of things we did well, like bunting and base running and things of that nature where we were able to make things happen in the games.” While the team does not like losing, Jones said they were

III, NAIA and NJCAA football teams. “We’re coming into the season ready,” Sanders said. “We’re hungry. We’re ready.” Local players expected to contribute this season are senior tight end Ian Overstreet (Patrick Henry), junior running back Tucker Walton (Lee-Davis) and sophomore defensive end Calvin Davis (Lee-Davis). Offensive lineman Josh Pittman (Hanover) is a freshman on this year’s team. Randolph-Macon opens their season at Johns Hopkins on Sept. 1 but the following week will be a historic moment for fans when the renovated Day Field is dedicated for their home opener against Averett. Under new head coach Scott Abell, WASHINGTON AND LEE (8-2, 5-1 ODAC) will look for a new quarterback but returns senior option back Luke Heinsohn (900 yds, 13 TDs) as well as senior slot backs Brett Murry (1,561 allpurpose yards, 867 rushing, 13 TDs) and Russell Stewart (511 yards, 5 TDs). On defense, preseason AllAmerican senior safety Jake

Pelton (76 tkls, 2 INTs, 7 PBUs) will be the leader. BRIDGEWATER (6-4, 3-3) returns four starters on offense and five on defense. The Eagles will look to senior quarterback Carlos Gonzalez for offensive leadership and senior defensive linemen Danny Grogg and Joel Frances to stop opponents. Junior wide receiver David Duncan (Patrick Henry) plays for Bridgewater. EMORY & HENRY (5-5, 2-4) can boast experience by returning a majority of their starters from a season ago- 10 on offense, seven on defense and four on special teams. ODAC Defensive Player of the Year, senior linebacker Devan Sproles (61 tkls, 6 INTs) will lead the Wasps while junior Kyle Boden (2,569 yds, 21 TDs) returns at quarterback. CATHOLIC (5-5, 1-5) also returns the bulk of its starting lineup from a season ago (9defense, 8-offense) and should be much improved from last year. Senior quarterback Greg Cordivari threw for 3,282 yards and 25 TDs last season while junior running back Mike Pitsenberger opened up the defense with 899 yards rushing and 7 TDs. The Cardinals’ defense was led by junior linebacker Conor Stueckler who recorded 95

not going to let the loss spoil their season. “They understood that we made a great run, that we had a lot of success along the way, and at some point, it was going to end. It just had to end a game too short,” Jones said. “We had the opportunity to play 18 games and won 15 games. Two of the games we lost by one run.

Junior Zac Halbert returns at quarterback as does classmate Lawrence Blake at wide receiver. But the Quakers strength will be in their defense. Three sophomores, linebacker Robert Smith and with DBs Hunter English and Satiir Stevenson led the defense last season and should do the same in 2012. SHENANDOAH (6-4, 5-2 USA South) enters the ODAC with holes to fill but local players should take on substantial roles in the team’s success this season. Sophomore quarterback Phillip Gardner (LeeDavis) is currently projected as the starter in the pocket this season. He will have the benefit of the Hornets’ top returning offensive lineman, senior Jacob Brent (Lee-Davis) at tackle. As a junior, Brent was named an Honorable Mention preseason All-American by Beyond Sports Network. At the end of the season he was a first team All-USA South member as well as third team All-Region for D3football. com.

Walton called up to Class A Quad City River Bandits Contributed report After just 26 games with the Batavia Muckdogs of the New York-Penn League, the St. Louis Cardinals have promoted Jordan Walton to the Class-A Quad Cities River Bandits. The River Bandits are located in Davenport, Iowa and are members of the Midwest League. Walton, who has moved to the outfield when he joined the Muckdogs back in June, was hitting .297 at the time of his call up on Wednesday. The Mechanicsville native recorded 22 hits in his 26 games and had an on-base percentage of .358. Walton recorded at least one hit in seven of his final 10 games with Batavia. A two-time All-American, Walton was signed by the Cardinals organization on June 11 after graduating RandolphMacon as the R-MC leader in

hits (215), doubles (65), RBI’s (137), total bases (348) & extra base hits (86). His final career batting average of .417 is second highest all-time in R-MC history and eighth best in ODAC history. Walton got his first start in left field on Aug. 3 against Peoria but went 0-for-3 from the plate. Keep track of Jordan by logging onto the official River Bandits’ website at www.riverbandits.com
