Local teen taking talents to Texas By Melody Kinser mkinser@mechlocal.com Abram Dean’s “first real thing” in terms of performing paid off earlier this year when he captured the title of Hanover Junior Idol. Thanks to some encouragement from his mom Debbie Lunsford, he took the leap into the world of music. And now the 16-year-old from Mechanicsville is preparing to move to Texas to pursue his dream. On Aug. 20, Abram and his mother will head to Dallas where he has been accepted to study — and hone his skills — with the Linda Septien Entertainment Group. Debbie said she suggested Abram enter the Hanover Arts and Activities Centersponsored Idols competition because he “wants to get into this music thing, so let’s see TEEN, pg. 14 `

try this. It’s not big, it’s not small, so let’s try this.” “I did it and ended up winning it,” Abram said. It was a lot of fun.” When Abram claimed the title of Hanover Junior Idol, he started receiving requests to sing at different functions. It was at that point that Debbie “realized he had no previous training at all. And for that reason I thought, ‘Well, let’s find him some training somewhere — some voice lessons, some guitar lessons, something’.” Abram performs his own songs, which, Debbie said, influenced the Idol judges. Their first contact with the entertainment group came when Debbie called about a summer camp program. “In talking with them on the phone, I told them that Abram had won the Hanover Junior Idol, which is a local competition. He had no formal training and I was interested in summer camp.” She also said her son “models for Wilhelmina [modeling agency] and they represent him.” She was asked to send a headshot and some information about him. “They asked if I would be interested in having Abram come to Dallas for a fourday evaluation and would he be available on his spring break,” Debbie added. “It kind of took me back. My husband [Kevin] and I discussed it and agreed to bring him out there.” It was during that time that they learned about the master program.

the elderly, homeless or lowincome individuals and families to receive a variety of clothing items, with special emphasis placed on interview, work,

Debbie said Septien personally takes on 15 master students per year. “But you have to audition to be one of her 15 master students.” Abram auditioned for a team that included Septien. “She wants the input of others” in that selection process, Debbie added. As for Abram’s audition, Debbie said “he did a great job, cool as a cucumber.” Two weeks later, he got the call that he had been chosen as a master student. Among the celebrities Septien has groomed are Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, Cody Linley, Nick Lachey, Beyonce, Ryan Cabrera, Jessica Simpson, Chase Crawford, Tim Urban and Kevin McHale. Abram said he looks forward to the opportunity the entertainment group will provide for his career. “Stage presence, my look, my singing ability, guitar playing, piano playing — I play guitar, drums, piano and write and sing — all those areas they’re going to work with me,” Abram said. He quickly points out that he calls his guitar, a Gibson, “Gibbi.” Debbie said Abram will be homeschooled “in everything that has to do with an artist” during the nine-month master program. Since kindergarten, Abram has been a student at the Victory Christian Academy. His public performances include two talent shows at the academy. Abram said Mechanicsville native, LeeDavis High School graduate and Grammywinning singer Jason Mraz has had a significant impact on his career aspirations.

church and dressy needs for men and women. For more information, call 749-4726 or visit www.thegivingheart.org.

“I’ve always like Jason Mraz; I’ve always listened to Jason Mraz, knowing he’s from Mechanicsville. He’s cool.” “I love music and I love writing music,” he said. “My dream is to go on tour and perform.” Music wasn’t always his first love though. Debbie remembers a time when Abram’s focus was on sports. “He was football, basketball all the way. It was sports all the way.” At one point, she said, he told his father that he was “going to be in the NBA.” Abram and his family attend Faith Landmarks Ministries on Chamberlayne Road. “One of the things that has been very important to our family — and we do not wear our faith on our sleeves — but we are Christians,” Debbie said. “And when Abram decided to go into pop/rock, Kevin and I both had our concerns. But we feel it’s important that there’s clean music for kids to listen to and good role models and we feel Abram has a good foundation. He’s got his head on straight.” Besides Mraz, Abram said he is influenced by the Jonas Brothers. “He watches their lives, he loves their music,” Debbie said. This fall, the cable channel A&E will air a documentary on Linda Septien and her entertainment group, featuring five of the master artists from last year’s program. A&E called Abram to get some comments about being accepted into the program. For more information on Abram, visit www.abramdean.com. There are links to Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

year’s statewide awards program. “After a record 72 entries last year, we didn’t see a dramatic decline in submissions as we received the second-most in the program’s eight-year history,” James Campbell, VACo executive director, said. “This tells me that Virginia continues to adapt

to the economic environment by developing innovative programs to affect positive change in our communities. The quality of the entries, many of which can be replicated throughout the state, was very impressive.” Blake, who recently retired, raved about the quality of the entries. “I was pleased to see that so many small- and medium-sized

counties participated,” she said. “I learned a lot from being a judge and reviewing the entries. I learned that we have many talented and skilled county employees in every region of the Commonwealth.” The VACo Achievement Awards is a competitive program open to local government members of the association. A website, www.vaco.org/

achievementawards.html, has been created with all the entries posted. Representatives from each of the award-winning counties will receive a certificate at an official ceremony during VACo’s 2010 Annual Conference in November. Also, VACo will present several awards at Board of Supervisors meetings.

OPINION | The Local Views From the editor

If you’re legit, then proof isn’t an issue Security seemed a bit extreme, but those preparing to tour Hoover Dam were not deterred by the precautions implemented. It was March 2001 and those learning about the man-made marvel were agreeable and accepting of tightened security measures. For example, no purses, diaper bags or camera bags were allowed on the tour. Our nation was rocked that fall with the Sept. 11 attacks. Gone were the days of being immune to the evil of the world. We had become the victim. Since that fateful day, we have seen security levels changed in our every day lives. We are asked on a frequent basis to display photo identification. All the hoopla in Arizona about proof of legal status stirred memories of that day at Hoover Dam. No one was insulted or disrupted by the mandates. If it means increased safety, then get on board. Do you feel as if you’re being profiled when asked to provide photo identification? If we’re co-existing in a safe, secure atmosphere — and you have legal status — then it shouldn’t be an issue. It isn’t an act of discrimination when lives are at stake. And that’s just what happened to our country nearly nine years ago. Our lives were shattered when terrorists struck — and the way we go about our day-to-day existence was forever changed. While the Arizona immigration issue has sparked debate, as well as cries of discrimination, is it so wrong to be expected to prove your legitimate status in the United States? What do you think about this issue? Are you uncomfortable at being asked to show proof of identity? If so, why? The status quo of a fairly safe society is no longer the norm. Sept. 11, 2001, changed that. With the court system’s role in the Arizona case making headlines and various groups and organizations supporting or denouncing the measure, what is the best method for ensuring a secure homeland again? Thoughts keep going back to that March in 2001 when Uncle Sam was watching out along the Nevada-Arizona border. Melody Kinser

Thanks for help in time of need

After rushing home, I watched in disbelief as I lost my entire home despite the hard work and efforts of many firefighters. Needless to say, the aftermath of such a loss is incredibly overwhelming, but, within hours of the fire, the outpouring of love and support from many of you in the town of Mechanicsville was simply amazing. Some of you we know, many of you we do not. I would like to thank everyone who was there offering their support, donations, time and love during this time of need. The children and I could not have made it through those first few weeks without you. Because of you, we had clothes to wear and the necessities that we needed as we struggled to start over. Saying thank you is not nearly enough but I want every-

An animal rights organization is asking for a federal investigation of the recent escape of two chimpanzees from a private Mechanicsville facility. Lisa Wathne, captive exotic animal specialist for the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) in Norfolk, submitted the request in a letter dated Aug. 5 to Dr. Elizabeth Goldentyer, eastern regional director of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s animal care division. According to a release from David Perle of PETA, the USDA has been asked “to investigate the escape last month of several chimpanzees from Windy Oaks, an unaccredited zoo. The escape indicates likely violations of the federal Animal Welfare Act’s primate housing requirements. Windy Oaks was cited last year by the USDA for similar violations, which also led to the escape of two

chimpanzees. An adult chimpanzee has the strength of eight human adults and can easily overpower a person. Last year, a chimpanzee who was kept as a ‘pet’ in Connecticut attacked a visiting neighbor, tearing off the woman’s hands and much of her face.” Wathne’s letter stemmed from receipt of the report from Hanover County Animal

“The escape indicates likely violations of the federal Animal Welfare Act’s primate housing requirements.” DAVID PERLE People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals

Kim, Morgan and Cole Simmons Mechanicsville

Thanks to deputies A few roads in my neighborhood got

from the facility and that one male chimpanzee was on the loose overnight. Windy Oaks’ attending veterinarian is cited in the report as saying that there have been three such escapes, that ‘it is a huge public safety issue to have these chimpanzees,’ and that she felt ‘it was too much’ for the Windy Oaks staff to handle.” PETA director Debbie Leahy added, “Keeping chimpanzees in a roadside zoo does both the animals and the community a grave disservice. These primates should be sent to a sanctuary, where they can receive proper care and safe housing -- and can no longer endanger Windy Oaks’ neighbors.” An article about the escape appeared in the July 28 edition of The Mechanicsville Local. The article can be found at http:// www.mechlocal.com/index. php/news/article/chimps_get_ brief_taste_of_freedom/. For more information on PETA, visit www.peta.org.

He told us how Duke does his job by sniffing our the criminals. Duke even has a car set up just for him! The whole back seat is gone and in its place is his dog bed, a toy and a water bowl! My dad and I are dog lovers and Duke could tell, so he jumped at us. Then Duke laid down when my dad walked by; he wanted his belly rubbed! Two bike officers rode all the way from the old courthouse which is pretty far to my house! They were dressed like police motorcyclists. It was a good example to see them wear-

Axselle, Gladstone re-elected John F. Axselle III of the Beaverdam District has been elected to serve another one-year term as chairman of the Hanover County School Board. Joining him again as vice chairman is Ann F. Hagan Gladstone of the South Ann District. The School Board reorganized during its regular meeting on July 13. Axselle, who was appointed to the School Board in 1995, also served as chairman in 2001-2003. Gladstone was appointed to the School Board in 2004. In other School Board news, the Hanover County Board of Supervisors recently reappointed Glenn T. Millican Jr. of the Mechanicsville District to another four year term. He was first appointed to the School Board in 1990 and served as chairman in 2003-2005.

ing helmets and the right shoes. I didn’t know they actually went to bike school! They had hot dogs with everyone. They played football with me and my friend Daniel and they were good throwers. A regular car officer came too and told us how he did his job and had a hot dog. I’m glad our police came to be part of the community and not just when bad things happen. This makes me feel proud to live in Hanover. Everyone should have been there! But since they weren’t, I wanted to share how much I liked the deputies coming to the party and how much I appreciate the work they do. Nathan McGhee Age 7 Fox Head

Car on pole down, but may return By Katherine Calos Media General News Service Atleeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s car on a pole has come down, but possibly not for long. Regarded as a nonconforming sign under Hanover County zoning laws and considered a landmark by those who appreciate its 50-year stand on U.S. 301, the Crosley wagon was removed from its perch on Monday, Aug. 2. A work crew used a crane and steel beams to support the car while it was cut from the pole, said Lea Dunham, publisher of an online vintage auto magazine called Still Runninâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The Crosley, with no engine or drive train, was lowered onto a trailer and will stay at the business while it is refurbished, Dunham said. Originally, the car was put up to mark the site of Gordon Lawhornâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s auto-salvage business with a red and blue color scheme. Now rusted and yellow, it advertises International Auto Recycling. Atlee Auto Service, which is moving to the International Auto site, can apply to amend its proffers and return the car to an elevated status, said Supervisor Charles D. McGhee of the Henry District. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The car has to come down so they can get their business open,â&#x20AC;? McGhee said. McGhee said there is support on the board â&#x20AC;&#x153;to get them to where they need to be.â&#x20AC;? Richard Hollins, one of the owners of Atlee Auto Service, said he hopes to have the Crosley refurbished and returned this fall after getting county approval through amended proffers. The cost has not been determined. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We got to get some approved engineered plans for resetting it,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Depending on the cost, I may have to do some type of fundraiser to get some

funds to reattach it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of people really want to see the car stay there at that location.â&#x20AC;? He said he hopes that some of them will donate work or money to help it happen. At the July 28 meeting of the Hanover County Board of Supervisors, Dunham called the car â&#x20AC;&#x153;one of our great American roadside oddities.â&#x20AC;? She said she had collected more than 1,000 signatures on a petition supporting the Crosley and had received e-mails of

concern from around country. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Crosley Club is out of their mind that you might take it down . . . . â&#x20AC;&#x153;The community and myself would like to thank you for allowing the little Crosley to stay. It is a piece of history we all treasure more than you were aware.â&#x20AC;? Crosleys were subcompact Melody Kinser/file photo cars manufactured in Indiana from 1939 to 1952. The car on A familiar sight on U.S. 301 has see CAR, pg. 17 `

been removed, but the car on the pole at the new location of Atlee Auto Service may return.

the pole in Hanover is thought to be from 1948 to 1951. It conceivably could stay on the same pole, cut down to meet the county’s 16-foot height limit. At least three people think the Crosley on the pole was their car. John Ostergren of Hanover County said his mother owned a blue 1952 Crosley station wagon when she was a news reporter in the county. “We regularly bought parts for the Crosley from Lawhorn and, when the Crosley had seri-

ous engine problems, she sold the car to Lawhorn. My mother always said that the car on the pole was her old wagon, and my sister believes that it is mother’s old car. “However, I was a teenager at the time and have different recollections on whose car is really on the pole. I regularly was at Lawhorn’s to get parts and believe that the car on the pole was a red wagon that we had scavenged parts from and not the blue one that my mother had owned. I would like to find out if it was originally red or blue.” Irving “Butch” Miller, who lives now in The Villages, Fla.,

said he had a blue 1948 Crosley when he lived in Chamberlayne Farms in the mid-1950s. “My grandfather in Annapolis, Md., gave me that Crosley. It had a big problem with the transmission. After three or four months, I sold it to Lawhorn for parts. I knew it was my car.” Rosie Berry, who grew up in eastern Henrico County and moved back to retire, said her father owned a light yellow Crosley that she thinks is the car on the pole. “Every time I went by it, I would tell my kids that was my car,” she said.

School district releases meals policy Hanover County Public Schools has announced its policy for providing free or reduced price meals for children served under the National School Lunch, and/or School Breakfast Programs. Each school and/or central school nutrition office has a copy of the policy, which may be reviewed by any interested party. Household size and income will be used to determine eligibility for free or reduced price meal benefits. Children from households whose income is at or below the Federal Income Eligibility Guidelines may be eligible for either free or reduced price meals. Children who are members of households receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits (formerly the Food Stamp Program) or who receive Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) may be automatically eligible for free

meals. Children who are homeless, migrant or runaway also may be automatically eligible for free meals. Foster children, who are the legal responsibility of a welfare agency or court, may be eligible for benefits regardless of the income of the household with whom they reside. Eligibility for the foster child is based on the child’s income. Children who are members of households participating in WIC may also be eligible for free or reduced-price meals based on the household’s income. Application forms are being distributed to all households with a letter informing households of the availability of free or reduced price meals for their children. Applications also are available at the principal’s office in each school and at the central office. To apply for free or reduced price meals, households must only fill out one application per

household and return it to the school division. Applications may be submitted at any time during the school year. The information households provide on the application will be used for determining eligibility and verification of data. Applications may be verified at any time during the school year by school or other program officials. For school officials to determine eligibility for free or reduced price benefits, households receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits (formerly the Food Stamp Program) or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) only have to list their child(ren)’s name and SNAP or TANF case number and an adult household member must sign the application. Households who do not list a SNAP or TANF case number, including WIC households, must list the names of all house-

hold members, the amount and frequency of the income received by each household member and the social security number of the adult household member who signs the application. If the household member does not have a social security number, the household member must indicate that a social security number is not available. The application must be signed by an adult household member in order to be approved. Under the provisions of the free and reduced price meal policy, food service department supervisors will review applications and determine eligibility. An application for free or reduced price meals cannot be approved unless it is complete. Households dissatisfied with the ruling of the eligibility determining official may wish to discuss the decision with the see MEALS, pg. 26 `

Boy Scouts take to the skies

Photo submitted by Jason Baranowski

Cub Scout Pack 503 of Mechanicsville (Church of the Redeemer) recently took a field trip to the Hanover County Airport. During the visit, Cubs took 20-minute airplane rides, compliments of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Young Eaglesâ&#x20AC;? program. Young Eagles is a national organization that promotes interest in flying among todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s youth. Cubs were awarded certificates of merit and accomplished several scouting achievements. The Cubsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; flight routes circled directly over Kings Dominion. After the flights, the pack enjoyed a volunteer lesson instructed by local pilots Harry and Chip Felid of the Hanover County Airport. Shown above are, from left, Nick Kelly, Michael Dyer, Will Free, Donovan Grove, Carson Panten, Ryan Baranowski and Joshua Gonzalez.

8193 WALNUT GROVE RD. RIGHT OFF 360 ACROSS FROM BATTLEFIELD ELEMENTARY SCHOOL.

Those who live and work around Mechanicsville may never have heard of Albert L. “Zeke” Hobbs Jr. But if you’re driving along U.S. 360 to go shopping or just out for a Sunday drive along Studley Road, chances are you’ve seen his influences. A Richmond native, Hobbs served as a Hanover County planning commissioner for the Mechanicsville District from 1984 to 2004 and was instrumental in shaping the area into the residential and commercial corridor it is today. He died Sunday, Aug. 1. He was 80. A graduate of John Marshall High School, Hobbs graduated from the University of Richmond and pursued a career in the insurance industry that lasted 45 years until his retirement in 2003. But one of his greatest passions, his family said, was serving on his county’s planning commission. According to county officials, Hobbs never missed a meeting in 20 years. He

served as chairman three times and as vice chairman twice during his tenure, which began just as the Mechanicsville area started to experience growing pains. Even when a snowstorm in the late 1980s kept most of the county indoors and powerless, Hobbs, along with then fellow commissioner Jack Ward and one other commissioner, made it to the county’s administration building only to find themselves locked out in the snow. They opened and closed the meeting that night in Ward’s car. “There will never be a better commissioner than Zeke was,” Ward said Tuesday, Aug. 3. Whether the case before him was for a trailer home in Beaverdam or an automobile dealership along busy U.S. 360, “I knew he would look at it not just from the brain, but from the heart,” Ward added. His family echoed Ward’s thoughts. The planning commission “was his life,” Nancy Hobbs, his wife of 53 years, said. “He always spoke what was on his mind, and he said what he thought was right.”

His children remember traveling around the county with their father to other districts so that Hobbs could familiarize himself with development proposals. One of his daughters, Becky Shermer of Mechanicsville, said a road between two neighborhoods is named after her father. Hobbs Crossing Road connects the Shelton Pointe and Greywood communities. “I learned about the county by traveling with him,” Hobbs’ son, Davey Hobbs of Mechanicsville, said. “He didn’t do things half-heartedly.” Whether it was a planning case — or his duty as the announcer of his children’s swim meets, “he poured himself into it,” Davey Hobbs said. In addition to his wife and son and daughter, survivors include another daughter, Betsy Hannon of Mechanicsville, and four grandchildren. Funeral services were conducted at 11 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 5, at the Mechanicsville Chapel of Bennett Funeral Home. Burial followed at Hanover Memorial Park.

‘After Easter’ performances start Aug. 12 in Ashland The Ville Players will present Anne Devlin’s “After Easter” at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 12-14 and 19-21 at the former St. Ann’s Church at Randolph-Macon College on the corner of Henry and England Streets in Ashland. 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. 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 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 512-6291. Tickets, paid by check or cash, are available at the door.

Doctor acquitted on prescription charges By Bill McKelway Media General News Service A Hanover County judge on Tuesday, Aug. 3, found a doctor not guilty of seven counts of knowingly prescribing pain medication to patients with unfounded medical conditions. Circuit Judge J. Overton Harris ruled there was insufficient evidence that Richmond-area physician Virat Bakhshi willfully and feloniously engaged in patient assessments and medication prescriptions that he knew would be abused. The judge made the ruling after the prosecution had presented its case. “Dr. Bakhshi didn’t seem to realize at first that he’d been found innocent. It was a very happy, emotional moment for him,” defense lawyer Craig S. Cooley said. Bakhshi faced up to 10 years in prison

on each charge and possible deportation to his native India if convicted of a felony. Bakhshi, 49, agreed in February to a license suspension by the state Board of Medicine, signing an order finding that he had engaged in negligent patient care, mail order prescriptions without patient examinations, and improper prescribing of pain medications. But that civil proceeding carries only a suspension or possible loss of his medical license. Key testimony came from two undercover Virginia State Police officers who said they posed as patients in 2005 and 2006 and recorded doctor visits with Bakhshi at his office on Mountain Road in Hanover County. They both complained of nonexistent aches and pains and asked for painkillers, noting on Aug. 3 that Bakhshi never

physically examined them and asked only superficial questions about their alleged ailments. Nor did he ask for chart histories from other doctors. One officer said he paid $65 for a 13minute session with the doctor. Both officers said they were able to obtain refills on return visits, again with only minimal information about the effects of medications Bakhshi had prescribed earlier. But Cooley argued that both officers signed medical forms that were replete with cautions about the effect of painkillers and warnings that the doctor would not agree to refills that were inconsistent with prescribed dosage levels. Bakhshi rejected requests for extra samples and warned one of the bogus patients that he would not prescribe higher-intensity pain medications because they were dangerous.

hand the increasing need in a dual role through her work as community liaison for Mechanicsville Churches Emergency Functions (MCEF). MCEF is one of six faith-based partners Social Services works with throughout the county. The others are Ashland Christian Emergency Services (ACES), Western Hanover Emergency Action Team (WHEAT), the Central Virginia Food Bank, Angelfood Ministries and local church food pantries. “We all do the same thing in our own area,” Saunders said. Social Services also partners with the Hanover County Community Services Board, Fuller said, because “very typically, an individual needs more than one service delivered by more than one agency.

ing done to make sure the clients get the full benefits of services.” Saunders said Social Services does “a whole lot for a whole lot of people with very little county money. What we have seen in the last two years is just a tremendous increase in demand and it’s people that have never thought of contacting Social Services before. It comes from job loss, reduction of income, housing issues.” As Fuller added “aging parents,” Saunders said, “medical bills.” To provide assistance, Saunders said a plan is created to “know what resources are out there.” Among those offering help are SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, food stamps) and TANF (Temporary Assistance to Needy Families). “I think it’s real important for people to understand the VIEW (Virginia Initiative for Employment not Welfare) program, preparing to work, going to school, that

kind of thing,” she said. “This program is helping people with viable employment.” “I like to term this a hand up, not a hand out,” Fuller said. “We are very fortunate in Hanover to have so few people who are in that very hard to place category.” Today, there are 109 participants in the program, with half of those fully employed. That figure, Saunders said, is “really down because of the employment picture. It used to be a far greater percentage because Hanover County businesses, employers are willing to work with Social Services.” Another success story, Fuller said, is adoptions – “the kids that are part of the foster care program removed from parental control. They enter the foster program and where parental rights have been dismissed then Social Services makes the effort to have these children adopted into perma-

nent residences.” The most enjoyable part of the job, he added, “is when we hear the reports of the division responsible for the placement of children.” Teenagers are especially difficult to place in adoptive homes. “At one point, we had three sibling groups who were adopted [by one family], which is very, very rare.” Fuller said that is the “warmth of this job – to see those kids placed in a permanent family, a loving family.” “It starts with our foster care program,” Saunders said. “We have a really good program in place, with good training. We’ve had some wonderful foster parents who have taken on these children and some become the adopted parents; some continue

We share contact information so that we can get in touch with each other if our clients need help. Social Services is a big part of that. Actually, Social Services is like the hub.” “We have a lot to be proud of,” Fuller said. “Social Services is a great steward, a good investment. It genuinely does provide a need for those in the community that are most deserving.” Those needing assistance can contact Social Services at 365-4100 or 365-6762 or 3656774.

The Ashland office’s hours are from 8:30 to 5 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday. Hours in Mechanicsville are 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Friday. Appointments are required. “Customer service agents will take the place and manage that with the referral,” Fuller said. “Sometimes it goes to a specific department there,” Saunders added, “but sometimes it might be for the crisis unit because there are multiple needs.” Unfortunately, fraud does occur. For that, Fuller said,

“Social Services does a pretty good job of policing. There’s a fraud unit that actively responds and investigates.” Through its work, the fraud unit has returned $25,000. He also praised the efforts of the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office, which “is a huge part of Social Services, along the avenues of public safety, providing safe evacuation from a dangerous situation, to fraud cases. The things that law enforcement are asked to do in Hanover are done in a welcoming manner. It’s not a have-to, it’s a want-to.” The Social Services Advisory Board meets at 3:30 p.m. the fourth Tuesday every other month at the Ashland location. Public input is valuable to their operation, Saunders said. The agenda includes citizen comments “if they have anything to bring up.”

operations, at 365-4500. Households may apply for free or reduced price meals at any time during the school year. If a household is not eligible now but has a change, such as a decrease in household income, an increase in household size, becomes unemployed or qualifies for SNAP or TANF, the household should contact the school for an application. Such changes may make the children of the household eligible for benefits if the household’s income falls at or below the Federal Income Eligibility Guidelines. Households that receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits (formerly the Food Stamp Program) or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families

(TANF) may not have to complete an application for free or reduced price student meals. School officials will determine eligibility for free meals based on documentation, obtained directly from the Virginia Department of Social Services, that a child is a member of a household currently receiving SNAP or is receiving TANF. School officials will notify these households of their eligibility. Households who are notified of their eligibility, but who do not want their children to receive free meals, must contact the school. SNAP and TANF households must complete an application if they are not notified of their automatic eligibility within the first 10 days of the new school year.

Atlee 9-10 year olds place among the best Third place region finish could be just the beginning By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Last week the Atlee 9-10 Little League All-Star baseball team excelled against the odds at the Tournament of State Champions in Huntington, WV. The final standings will show that Atlee came in third among the eight Southeast Regional Tournament teams, but the players, coaches and fans know they were among the best there. Playing in the most talented pool and the toughest schedule Atlee finished 3-1, losing to eventual tournament champion Columbus, Georgia. It was the best performance by a Virginia team since 2008 when Southwestern went 4-1 losing to the same Columbus, Georgia Little League in the championship. The state of Georgia has dominated the Tournament of State Champions throughout its five years of existence, going 22-3 with three championships since 2005. Therefore when Atlee saw that their tournament opener was against a team from Georgia, Manager Rodney Chenault knew he had work to do with his kids. “When we saw who we’re playing, they were like, ‘Oooo, Georgia,’” he said.

32

“We really try to stress to the kids that just because they’re from another state doesn’t mean they’re any better than we are. They’re playing baseball in their state just like we’re playing baseball in our state.” After trailing Georgia 1-0 in the top of the third, Atlee reeled off six straight with runs from Jack Chenault, Jack Dragum, Josh Brown, Jordan Thompson and two scores from Nick Zona to take the lead. But Georgia bounced back with three runs in the top of the fifth and two in the top of the sixth to send the game into extra innings. In the bottom of the eighth it was Zona again, reaching second via an error on his shot to left. A passed ball put Zona on third and he then scored on a fielder’s choice from Dragum to win the game 7-6. On Sunday, Atlee adjusted to a drastic time change, going from their one o’clock opener to an 8 p.m. game against South Carolina to close the day. But with earlier games going long, Atlee’s game started over an hour late and did not end until nearly midnight. South Carolina turned in a nearly perfect performance with no errors but Zona was nearly as perfect for Atlee going 3-for-3 with a double, home run and two RBI. After seeing South Carolina race out to a 4-0 lead in the bottom of the first, Atlee answered

with six runs in the top of the second then held on for an 8-7 win. Atlee faced off against host West Virginia in their final pool play game, which once again began later than its schedule 8 p.m. start. And once again it was a hard fought battle going to the wire. Atlee exploded from a 4-4 fourth inning tie by scoring three runs in the top of the fifth. West Virginia came back in the bottom of the sixth to pull within one and put both the tying and winning run on base with two outs. But Atlee reliever Mason Cox did not let the game get away from him, getting a ground out to end the contest and send his team into the elimination round with a perfect 3-0 record. Dragum finished the game 3for-4 with two RBI.

Ironically, because of tiebreakers, the two runs given up to WV in the bottom of the sixth dropped Atlee from the #1 seed to the #2 seed, setting up a rematch with Georgia. North Carolina claimed the top slot by going 3-0 against teams that finished with a combined 1-8 record. Of the three teams Atlee beat, two advanced to the semifinals. Also at a disadvantage, Atlee moved from the late night closer to the 5 p.m. semifinal opener. Facing Georgia for a second time also matched them up against ace pitcher Seth Shadix.

“We didn’t hit the ball as we had in the previous game but it was also that he pitched a great game,” Chenault said. Georgia ran out to a 7-0 lead by the top of the fourth before Atlee cut into the lead with two runs in the bottom of the inning. But it would be all of the offense that Atlee could muster, finishing the game with only four hits in an 8-2 loss. “We beat them once and I felt like we could have beat them again if we’d played our best game,” Chenault said. “But coming off back-to-back-(to back) one-run ball games, that’s got to

take a little bit out of you.” Facing Georgia did not help matters. “They’re very good physically,” Chenault said. “Physically, their kids are much bigger than ours. We have a decent sized team but that Columbus Little League traditionally has been a powerhouse.” Georgia went on to defeat West Virginia 5-4 and claim the championship. Despite coming up short in their attempt to take the title, the Atlee players came away with a memorable experience. From see ATLEE, pg. 33 `

Doug Fritz free(dom) falls into RIR September 11 race will take on a patriotic theme By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com In the current economy NASCAR track presidents across the country have gone to great lengths to sell race tickets. But last week Richmond International Raceway President Doug Fritz broke new groundfortunately that’s all he broke. Part promotion to introduce the Air Guard 400 and part publicity stunt, Fritz accepted a challenge to go sky diving for the first time. But for Fritz this was no simple parachuting exercise. Instead he was tandem sky-diving into the infield of RIR, something no other track president in the United States has attempted. “I tell you what, I think it’s the craziest thing I’ve ever done in my entire life, but hopefully we’ll sell some tickets,” Fritz said. Fritz’s sky dive was the keynote event for RIR to announce that the Air Guard has taken on entitlement rights for the September 11, “One Last Race to Make the Chase.” With the NASCAR Foundation Track Walk to benefit Paralyzed Veterans of America and now the Air Guard 400 taking place on such a historic date, NASCAR weekend at RIR will definitely have a patriotic theme. “Obviously September 11, 2001 was a tough day in the history of the Untied States and we’re going to pay the respectful tribute that it deserves during our race event,” Fritz said. “We have some special events planned for the prerace so it will recognize the September 11 events.” Likewise, Fritz said the track’s partnership with the Air Guard seemed a natural fit for the day.

“We’re proud to partner with the soldiers protecting the freedoms all over the world,” he said. “For me jumping out of an airplane, it’s probably a lot easier than what they (soldiers) have to do every day in war and across the world fighting for our freedoms.” Fritz pointed out that in the days leading up to the jump preparation consisted of calming his fears and intense research. “I talked to as many people as I could,” he said. “I did a lot of research on the internet as well the last couple of nights to get an understanding of what I’m in for and it had some fearful moments.” However, once Fritz was in the plane and riding at 7000 feet on the stifling hot, humid day, his only thought was to get out. “The plane was so tight and cramped it was like, ‘I’ll do anything to get out of this plane. I really don’t want to take another

20 minutes to go back and land at the airport.’ It was a pleasure at that point.” Air National Guard Master Sergeant Matt Leas also parachuted in the same group as Fritz. “Me and Doug were sitting probably four inches apart as were the two other guys the entire ride up,” Leas said. “It was very cozy in there and I think we were all glad to jump out of there and get some fresh air.” Once out of the plane, the skydive was filled with sensations. “It was really like you were floating on air,” Fritz said. “It really wasn’t much, then the parachute opened up and there was this sense of ‘uh-oh what’s going on now?’ until you realize that this is probably a good thing. “Then when you come in close to the track it starts to come in a little more that height perspective,” Fritz added. “When you get close the track that land-

Last week, Richmond International Raceway President Doug Fritz parachuted into the track infield, becoming the first track president in the country to do so. Fritz’s stunt was a means to announce RIR’s partnership with the Air Guard who will be sponsoring the NASCAR Sprint Cup Air Guard 400 on September 11. Above left: NASCAR driver David Stremme, center, will be driving the Air Guard car in Richmond and congratulated Fritz, right, and Master Sergeant Matt Leas on their jump.

ing strip looked really, really small.” “I think, particularly for a first time jumper, Doug did a great job of jumping into a race track,” Leas said. “Not many

people skydive all together, but to jump into the infield of a racetrack?” Once on the ground, Fritz was greeted by NASCAR driver David Stremme who will be

behind the wheel of the Air Guard car on Sept. 11. Stremme had no desire to join in the stunt. “Negative,” he said. “I was not in control…I’m not a big fan of heights.”

They partnered with Burkwood to promote the event. “I think one of the most important aspects of these events is that it increases community awareness of the abilities of people with physical limitations versus focusing on their disability,” said Sportable executive director Kristen Lessig. The event teams able athletes with disabled athletes, providing a rewarding experience for each. Eleven Sportable participants took part in this year’s event. “We’ve had a great turnout and I met some great people,” said Rigsby, who now travels the county spreading his message of hope and redemption.

“The Ironman was just a means to a larger end and gave me a platform to share a message of hope and inspiration and of overcoming adversity and challenges that we all face.” Rigsby doesn’t think too much about the nine seconds that changed his life in 1986, or the 22 months of training that led him to Hawaii. He prefers to remember the 16 hours, 42 minutes and 46 seconds it took him to reach the finish line at Kailua Kona… and make history. Rigsby’s amazing journey from the unexpected inspired him to write a book entitled “Unthinkable.”

Continued from pg. 33 b

Ashleigh Hart said Rigsby’s addition provided the perfect message for this year’s Hometown Waterboy, Waterkid event. “We brought Scott in this year to offer a different perspective and help us grow the event and it’s been our best Waterboy ever,” Hart said. This is the sixth year for the event. The run/swim events featured participants from Sportable, a non-profit organization that assists physically challenged athletes and provides athletic outlets for its clients.

Juniors continue winning streak Staff reports On Sunday evening, the Mechanicsville Junior All-Star baseball team finished pool play in the Southeast Region tournament with a perfect 3-0 record. Mechanicsville started pool play Friday with a 10-7 win over Tennessee (2-1). On Saturday, the Juniors defeated West Virginia (0-3) 7-5. They then completed pool play with a 4-1 win over Florida (1-2). The Juniors advanced

to the semifinals where they were scheduled to play North Carolina (1-1) on Monday afternoon. With a win Mechanicsville would advance to the championship and face the winner of the Georgia (2-0) vs Tennessee game. Mechanicsville finished pool play with the lowest runs allowed average at 0.619. Georgia was third with 0.7143, North Carolina third (1.0) and Tennessee fifth (1.1249).

MLL Juniors not the first In last week’s Mechanicsville Local it was reported that this year’s Mechanicsville Junior baseball team were the first to reach Southeast Regional play. They are in fact the third. In 2003, the 13-14 year old MLL softball team finished third in regional play. More recently, the 2009 MLL Seniors baseball team won the Virginia state championship and advanced to regional play in Florida.

With three first place votes, Hampden-Sydney was selected to top the Old Dominion Athletic Conference Preseason Football Poll last week. The defending ODAC champion Tigers finished last year’s regular season with a perfect 10-0 record while boasting both the league’s top offense and stingiest defense. H-SC was followed in the poll by Bridgewater, Emory & Henry, Randolph-Macon, Washington & Lee, Guilford and Catholic. Hampden-Sydney was not a unanimous selection to occupy the top slot as four teams received first place votes. Bridgewater picked up two number one votes while E&H and R-MC both were given one. As such, both coaches and players believe it should be a highly competitive year in the ODAC.

“I think there’s a lot of parity in this league,” said RandolphMacon head coach Pedro Aruzza. “I think it’s been that way for the last three or four years. You’d better come ready to play on a given Saturday because if you don’t, as we discovered last year when we went down to Guilford, you’re going to lose. “Without a doubt I think there’s a lot of teams that have the capability of being conference champions this year,” Aruzza added, “a lot of teams that have the ability of putting a run together.” H-SC head coach Marty Favret concurred. “We said the same thing last year and it was anyone’s game,” he said. “We were able to navigate through our ODAC schedule but five of the six games were up for grabs going into the fourth quarter, including the game against Catholic that was 0-6 in the conference.

naïve enough to think that this is a top tier heavy league. “You’ve got to win your home games,” Favret said. “You’ve really got to take care of home then hope you get on the road and you get more than you don’t get.” H-SC was the only ODAC team to be listed on the D-III Preseason Football Poll, coming in second among others receiving votes. The Tigers return a host of local players including two-time All-ODAC offensive lineman, junior Ben Rogers and junior running back Kirk Rohle both from Hanover High School. Mills Godwin product Travis Lane is expected to take over at quarterback, while wide out Sean Cavanaugh (Midlothian), Anthony Mancini (Benedictine) and tight end Andrew Buckner (LC Bird) are back as All-ODAC selections from last season. Two league players were named Preseason AllAmericans. Hampden-Sydney senior safety Bill Doody was named a First Team AllAmerican while Emory and Henry senior running back Caleb Jennings was named to the second team offensive unit.

Field Hockey players wanted Justin Jasper earned the Top Quarterback Award at the 2010 Brian Mitchell Football Camp held at George Mason University in June. A highlight of the week long camp was the final scrimmage. In the final seconds, Justin threw a 40-yard touchdown pass that won the game. Justin, a fifth grader at St. Christopher’s School, is the son of Keith and Amy Jasper of Mechanicsville. Brian Mitchell holds several NFL records from his years with the Washington Redskins and a Super Bowl XXVI ring. Submitted by Amy Jasper
