Protesters gathered outside the Hanover County administration building last Wednesday before the Board of Supervisors decided to pursue a public-private partnership on group homes.

While the nation continues to navigate through a “very confusing economy,” Hanover County’s economic picture appears to be on a positive track. Marc Weiss, director of

Hanover County Economic Development, presented the Board of Supervisors with highlights from the 2010 annual report. “We don’t really know which direction the economy is going. Some of our key data given to us by the Virginia Employment

Commission is lagging behind in terms of time.” He did say it is “possible in some of these areas we have improved, but we also may have deteriorated.” Goals established included expanding the tax base, job retention and job creation.

Four county students named National Merit Scholarship Program semifinalists Four Hanover County students have been named semifinalists in the 2011 National Merit Scholarship Program. They are: Andrew T. Catanese and Alva C. Waters, Atlee High School; Matthew S. Kellner, Hanover High School; and Hannah N. Kannegieter, Patrick Henry High School. These four are among about 16,000 semifinalists in the 56th annual National

Merit Scholarship Program announced by officials of the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (nmsc). These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 8,400 National Merit Scholarships, worth more than $36 million, that will be offered next spring. To be considered for a Merit

Scholarship award, semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the finalist level of the competition. About 90 percent of the semifinalists are expected to attain finalist standing, and about half of the finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar title.

cern, having “doubled since the onset of the recession,” due to “companies downsizing and giving up space.” He said his department has been “working diligently to fill that space.” “Fairly low” is how he described vacancies in offices. With retail vacancies, the county is “doing fairly well. We will continue to monitor as we go forward.” Declines in new construction and commercial taxes this year, Weiss said, are “reflective of the environment.” The county isn’t seeing an aggressive investment in new equipment. “Tax revenue trends to go down as well,” the economic development director said. “We need to keep an eye on this as we go forward.” With jobs, Hanover lost about 1,100 from 2008 to 2009, especially in construction, Weiss said. He did point to an increase in local companies, citing two new businesses. “Average weekly wages basically stayed level, which is good news in this climate.” Led primarily by wholesale trade in highest wage industry performance, Weiss said “We are doing better than many other areas and I think that’s good news for our communities.” Overall, Hanover “gained jobs in these areas.” Memorial Regional Medical Center, he added, has been a key to positive news in select technical and professional occupations. Hanover County Economic Development assisted 151 businesses last year. Weiss said the department’s business visitation program will continue “where we need to be,” with visits and follow-ups. Major accomplishments of the county’s economic development efforts include: Dominion Resources GreenTech Incubator, Hanover Foils, Specialty Coating and Laminating, Business First, and the updated Historic Hanover County Brochure.

In addition to the county brochure, Weiss said a focus is being placed on the Road to Revolution Trail. Looking ahead, Weiss said the Buy Local campaign will continue with utility bill inserts, a marketing plan, announcements and articles through the county-produced Hanover Review. He said plans are being made for “a big splash in the late fall before the holiday shopping season.” Tourism continues to thrive in the county, thanks in great part to the Visitors Center at Bass Pro Shops and the Ashland Visitors Center. The county first adopted a strategic plan in 2000, with a vision statement Weiss called “pretty simple: It fosters the retention and expansion of existing businesses and the attraction of new businesses.” Weiss updated the supervisors on the status of the relocation of his department’s offices. Hanover Economic Development is moving to a new facility at the Rutland Commercial Center. He said they “hope to have some kind of a grand opening event.” The new office will be located at 8200 Center Path Lane, Suite 3, in Mechanicsville. In other business, the supervisors received the preliminary legislative agenda for the 2011 session of the General Assembly from county attorney Sterling Rives. Proposed action items as submitted by the Legislative Committee are: ❍ Adding the county to the list of counties authorized to regulate the parking of boats, trailers, recreational vehicles and commercial vehicles on secondary roads. Rives said complaints, particularly in the Chickahominy, Mechanicsville and Henry districts, are frequently received. Citing “several adverse impacts,” he said the parking situation makes it “difficult to see children playing on or near the street, difficult to get emergency vehicles in and out of cul de sacs.”

❍ Providing comprehensive and general authority for localities to provide assistance to other localities without the requirement for emergency declarations or interjurisdictional agreements, which Rives said often become dated. ❍ Amending provisions of the Dam Safety Act to restructure the program for state regulation of dams to focus on those dams that present the potential for significant risk to public safety and property. The act, Rives said, changed about 10 years ago. As a result of the changes, he said the state has broadened the scope of its jurisdiction of dams to include farm ponds. He said the focus has been lost for those structures that “really do pose a substantial threat for loss of life or loss of property.” The goal is to narrow the focus of state regulations. The county’s position on legislation likely to come before 2011 General Assembly are: ❍ Supporting legislation that would provide counties with the same local taxing authority as cities in order that counties might reduce their dependence on real estate and personal property taxes. ❍ Opposing legislation that would eliminate or phase out the authority for machinery and tools taxes or business professional occupation license taxes unless alternative and equivalent additional revenue sources are made available to localities. Rives said Hanover County “should oppose unless alternative and equivalent revenue sources are provided otherwise.” In presenting support for legislative policy statements, Rives said the first four are “substantially the same as supported in the past.” ❍ Protecting existing authority regarding local budget decisions and opposing any shifting of funding responsibility from the state to localities for existing mandated programs. ❍ Protecting existing local government authority in all areas, including eminent

domain, revenue and land use. ❍ Environmental regulations and programs that are scientifically valid and reasonably cost effective and that will result in substantial and demonstrable improvements to the environment. ❍ Equitable reallocation of revenue and service responsibilities between the state and localities to provide for ongoing stability in taxation and the delivery of government services. Rives said less funding is being provided for constitutional officers, forcing “localities to pick up the difference and now that is a substantial part of the local funding responsibility that we would oppose. And ideally there would ultimately be a resolution, an agreement for equitable sharing of this burden.” He said there has been a “progressive shifting of that burden.” ❍ Developing alternative funding sources in lieu of cash proffers for capital improvements required to serve new residential development. Rives said the position of the Legislative Committee is that “cash proffers, which are useful and necessary, are not an ideal funding source.” ❍ Participating in the efforts of the Virginia Association of Counties, Virginia Municipal League and Virginia Retirement System and other interested localities to develop a proposal for the 2010 session of the General Assembly to establish a defined contribution plan through the Virginia Retirement System as an option for localities in lieu of the defined benefit plan for future employees. Rives said it “provides for a more predictable and greater budget certainty going into the future.” With the proposal, the county “wouldn’t have contribution rates changing year to year.” Rives also said there would be “benefits to employee in terms of affordability of the benefits and the ability to manage their own retirement future.” Supervisors agreed to consider the agenda at the Sept. 22 meeting.


Midwives For Haiti prepare for new ‘adventure’ in unique Jeep To celebrate its fourth anniversary, Midwives For Haiti is using a unique vehicle to triple the number of pregnant Haitian women midwives reach: a hot pink Jeep. Painted to match the color of scrubs worn by the Haitian midwives graduated from the teaching program, the off-road vehicle is designed to enable prenatal care and skilled birth assistance for women in some of Haiti’s hardest-to-reach villages. The 1987 Jeep Wrangler, specially refurbished for Third World conditions, is made possible thanks to generous donations from Central Virginia organizations and individuals. On Friday, the Jeep was on display at the Atlee Road location of Physical Therapy Solutions, one of the organization’s supporters. Following the Central Virginia tour, the Jeep will be shipped to Hinche, which is about 60 miles northeast of Port-au-Prince, where the

OPINION | The Local Views From the editor

A humble leader says his goodbyes Col. V. Stuart Cook is the epitome of a law enforcement officer: strong and confident. He has been a well respected leader in his four decades of serving the public. Now, he leaves the office of sheriff of Hanover County after 20 years. When Cook officially announced his retirement plans in July, he said it was time for others to move up in the ranks of the Sheriff ’s Office. That includes his right-hand man, Lt. Col. David Hines, who will assume the title of sheriff during a promotional ceremony tomorrow at the government complex. Last Wednesday, the Hanover County Board of Supervisors and Town of Ashland presented proclamations to Cook in honor of his years of service. The sheriff stood proud and solemn. Despite his many successes as the county’s top law enforcement officer, he is a humble man. Hines, who had been in the Sheriff ’s Office for six years when Cook arrived in 1990, is quick to point out the influence his mentor has had on his career. Their admiration is mutual. Cook was highly complimentary of his successor during his remarks following last week’s proclamations. Cook gave 25 years to the City of Richmond and 20 to Hanover County. His legacy will live on through those he worked with and trained. He will be missed, but he is certain he leaves the office in good hands. Speaking of Cook, he will be honored during the Annual Dinner and Membership Meeting of the Hanover Association of Businesses and Chamber of Commerce this evening at Islamorada at Bass Pro Shops. On Monday, family, friends and colleagues gathered at the Hanover Country Club for golf and refreshments. In true form, this humble leader did not want any fanfare as he departs. Melody Kinser

Thanks for help with food drive I am a Life Scout in Troop 553 of Mechanicsville, Va. On Aug. 14 and 28, I held a canned food drive for my Eagle Scout Leadership Project to benefit the Hospital Hospitality House, an organization that provides shelter for patients and their families. This event was held at the Kroger in Mechanicsville. I am grateful for the hundreds of people arriving both mornings that so willingly donated to the drive. Their benevolence was truly awe-inspiring. Additionally, the members of the Fairmount Christian Church played a huge role in the success of the drive. Many of them made a special trip to Kroger specifically for the purpose of donating to the drive. The Hospital Hospitality House and I are thankful for their enthusiasm for the cause and generosity in donating. Those that helped directly implement the project deserve much thanks, too. I would not have had this amazing opportunity if it were not for the Hospital Hospitality House and their help in

coordinating the project. I appreciate Kroger allowing the drive to be held at their facility. I am thankful for The Mechanicsville Local’s influence in promoting the drive with the articles they ran. Volunteers along the way that met with me, signed papers, or worked the drive merit a special thanks. see LETTERS, pg. 8 `

CELEBRATING 50 YEARS OF TRADITION AND PRIDE!

Message from the Principal Our school year has opened smoothly with enrollment of around 1640 students who are preparing to be future community leaders. We had a great opening week, and fi nished with our opening football games against Hermitage High School.

The assessments will be given at the end of the fi rst and third of each quarter. The primary purpose of the assessments is to gauge student learning for the purpose of maximizing student achievement.

Everyone’s energy and passion in helping with the project is something I will never forget. Justin Shawler Troop 553 Mechanicsville

Oil dependence unacceptable While we do not yet know the full extent of the impacts of the BP Deepwater Horizon spill, it is clear that the damage is catastrophic, with risks to the health of marine wildlife, fisheries and coastal economies. It is also clear that our continued dependence on oil unacceptable. There will also be long-term impacts from a changing climate if we continue to rely on

These are only a few of the more obvious items. Yet, twice I have received citations threatening me with daily fines of between $50 and $10/day for “violations.” The last one was for a “missing pineapple decal” on my mailbox following a time I repainted my mailpost. It’s a mandatory purchase to the tune of $30 from only one particular signage distributor in Leadbetter Industrial Park by the way. More recently, another threat arrived citing the mailbox numbers are not “Futura font, 3.75 inches high and 2.5inches wide.” I’m actually not certain what font my numbers are, as these are the exact same font numbers, carefully replaced at least twice, that have been on that mailpost for the 15 years I have lived here, and look exactly like all the others on the street.

polluting fossil fuels. Climate change is one of today’s greatest threats to ecosystem integrity, fish and wildlife, human coastal settlements, and economic development. As our senators head back to Washington, D.C., they should know their constituents expect them to get right to work and pass comprehensive climate and energy legislation that significantly reduces global warming pollutants by putting a price on carbon; protects our wildlife and natural resources from the impacts of climate change; and prevents future disasters like the Gulf spill by prohibiting any new drilling off our coasts.

street in Hanover at any one time of the week and within the first block you will always find the same two or three homes whose weed-filled front lawns have not been cut for weeks. You will also find one home whose bayfront window is framed in plywood with only a thin coat of primer paint and a large football banner hung as a privacy drape. Several mailboxes are tilted in rotting disrepair and the abandoned house next door has been an eyesore for two years. I’m told repeatedly that the house is “being restored,” but it’s still missing its front railing, the siding is moldy, and the once lovely flower beds remain full of poison ivy, continuously sprouting a variety of unsightly weeds. Its only inhabitants are nocturnal . . . a family of opossums, mice and snakes have kept lots of owls, my dog and Turn onto my neighborhood the neighborhood cats busy.

Association’s rules at issue

Since 1998, I have never had notice about those numbers. My very first notice, received yesterday, threatens a lawsuit by the King’s Charter Homeowners Association if I do not rectify this horrific eyesore. I keep an almost impeccable yard and home, I help my aging neighbor with her sometimes out of control flower beds, I shovel her driveway as well as my own in the snow and I have put in my share of volunteer activities as a homeowner in this subdivision. I pay my monthly dues even though I have not been to the pool in years, have no children on the swim team, do not use the tennis courts or gym facilities, and my street, unlike others, has neither sidewalks, nor street signs that are visible at night. My home is painted regularly, my trash cans are out of sight, my yard and beds are

maintained more than once per week, and I clean up after my dog. Consequently, I view the latest picayune as harassment with respect to the ongoing disrepair around me. I find the behavior of the current board as representative of a group of inglorious, obtuse, bored, busy-bodies with total and complete disregard for common sense and priorities. To send letters of threat of this nature for a universally accepted “font” present before I purchased this home in 1998 should be forewarning to anyone seeking to purchase a home in any subdivision where a Homeowners Association sits unchallenged as judge and jury. The King’s Charter Owners Association and its manager, Community Group Inc., are clearly out of control. Karen Overmeyer Mechanicsville

Back-to-School Checklist By Pastor David Crisp, Senior Pastor

T

his time of year always makes me hanker after a Big Chief tablet and new box of 64 crayons with a built-in sharpener. Ah, the smell of it! New shoes, new book bags, and the fragrance of hot rolls wafting in from the cafeteria, signaling a brand new school year with all kinds of new fun things to learn. How would we rate our parenting when it comes to education? Of course we are great parents! We attend PTA faithfully, show up at every parentteacher conference, and would never miss the ball games, plays, concerts and activities our kids participate in. After all, what could be more important than our children’s education, right?

W

ell, perhaps their health. Certainly our kids’ health is paramount in importance. So, we take them to the doctor when they need to go, make sure they see their dentist regularly, insist on yearly physicals, and watch like a hawk what they eat. After all, what could be more important than their health?

A

nd who hasn’t said, or at least heard someone say, that the most important thing in the world is their child’s happiness? No sacrifice is too great to ensure our children’s happiness, right? So, when they need something, we buy it for them. The latest style clothes – no problem. If it costs a little extra, well, they are worth it! After all, what could be more important than our children’s happiness?

E

very good parent should be concerned about these things, but what could be more important than our children’s education, health, or happiness? Our children’s holiness! If we are more concerned about their happiness than their holiness, we will fail as parents. As important as all those other things are, they represent temporary virtues. Our kids’ bodies and minds are temporary, but their spirits are eternal, destined to live forever, somewhere. And God has made us their parents. Let’s do the job. “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6). 14

Harmony in Hanover Concert Series continues

Winterization applications now accepted

Applications are now being accepted for Hanover County’s annual Winterization Program, which helps low-income, disabled and/or elderly county residents by placing plastic over windows, wrapping water pipes and weather-stripping doors. Work is performed by volunteer crews. The program is supported through financial contributions for supplies. Volunteer groups throughout Hanover register to conduct one or more of these Winterization projects. The program then assigns the available groups to independently complete the winterization tasks for eligible low-income families, elderly or disabled homeowners. The goal of the program is to ensure that every household has this minimal level of protection from the winter weather. The Department of Community Resources is working in partnership with the countywide “Mission to Virginia” day of service to be held on Nov. 13. A six-week session for “Tai Chi for Arthritis” will be taught by Jo Ann Widner, a registered The Beaverdam Baptist class will start tomorrow (Thursday, Sept. 16) nurse.

STRONG SUGGESTION! While muscle strength can drop by 15% per decade between the ages of 50 and 70, strength training can halt much of the decline once considered an inevitable part of aging. Strength training can even restore muscle power to the levels they were decades earlier. This increased strength translates to improved mobility that makes it easier for older adults to handle everyday tasks such as carrying groceries and walking up stairs. According to one clinical trial, weight training also helped people with knee arthritis reduce their pain by half and walk twice as fast over uneven terrain after eight weeks of strength training. Strength training strengthens the ligaments, muscles, and tendons that make ankles, hips, and knees more stable. At HERITAGE GREEN ASSISTED LIVING, we feature a variety of therapeutic and social activities. These include wellness and fitness programs, health clinics, guest lectures, cooking classes, movies, and gardening.

September 15, 2010

The first full day of the 2010 National Boy Scout Jamboree dawned bright and early. The troop quartermasters went to gather the breakfast fixings and bring them back to the troop. Each troop had four patrols that prepared breakfast and dinner each day. The scouts grabbed lunch on the run from “kiosks” located all over the Jamboree. Breakfast met with more success than dinner the night before. The scouts were more familiar with the cooking equipment, so breakfast was almost warm. The scouts were anxious to begin exploring the Jamboree and after they were issued their ID badges and lunch tickets they were off. Andrew Lambrechts, senior patrol leader of Troop 1710 and member of Troop 521 of Mechanicsville, was anxious to, “shoot stuff!” There many opportunities to pick your weapon as well as your target. Each region had an Action Center within an easy walking distance. Subcamp 17, of which the scouts from Mechanicsville were with, is in the Southern Region. They travelled to Action Center A, where there was archery, air riffles, mountain boarding, Buckskin games (old-fashioned skills challenges such as black powder, branding and ax throwing), BMX racing,

climbing and repelling, to name a few. In addition to learning new skills and just having fun, the scouts were earning activity “rockers.” These will go around the Jamboree patch worn on all participants shirts. The goal is to completely circle your patch with rockers. Troop 1710 set off with their buddies, a BSA requirement at all times, to experience a taste of adventure. The scouts were issued tickets to some of the exhibits to help regulate the amount of visitors at one time. Troop 1710 went to the Mysterium Compass show, which was put on by the Order of the Arrow, BSA’s national honor camping society. This was a show that was part video game, part action adventure play and challenging. They also went to the Technology Quest exhibit, which demonstrated remotecontrolled go carts, various simulators and computer technology used to engrave metals. Some of the scouts also headed off to the Merit Badge Midway to begin earning various Merit Badges. A popular one was the new Robotics, which is expected to be available after January 2011. There were more than 50 Merit Badges offered. Still, other scouts headed to the Media Relations tent to get their credentials for being Hometown Media Correspondents. With the Media credentials,

the scouts were admitted to the various press conferences through out the Jamboree. Tuesday’s special guest was Christopher Paolini, the author of the Eragon series. He spoke about how he began writing, which was because he was bored and wanted to write a book that he would be interested in reading. He spoke about how he invented the various foreign languages he uses in his books. Mr. Paolini bases his languages on various Norse languages and then lets his imagination lead him from there. Through the question and answer session, Mr. Paolini spoke about his new book, but he was very guarded about the details. From the very few details he would discuss, it has the potential to be even more exciting than his previous books. After a long but adventurefilled day, the scouts of Subcamp 17, as well the Subcamps in the other three regions, began to make their back to camp. Dinner is prepared and served promptly at 6 p.m., so the scouts were expected back in camp by 5 p.m. Being late was not acceptable. After another culinary challenge, the Troop settled in to playing Cornhole or the ever present patch trading – a story for another day. In addition, the scouts swapped stories about their activities of the day with many words of advice — “that activity

Nick Aunspach is sharing experiences from the 2010 National Boy Scout Jamboree at Fort A.P. Hill. He is an Eagle Scout and has been involved in scouting since he was a Tiger Cub (Pack 503) in the first grade. He is a member of Troop 503, sponsored by his church, the Church of the Redeemer. Nick serves as Troop scribe and Troop guide, assisting new scouts in working through their rank advancements. He is very active in his church, serving as an usher and as a member of the Youth Council and attending workcamps. A lifelong Mechanicsville resident, he is a junior at Lee-Davis High School, where he is very active in the marching band. Nick’s parents are Dan and Suzy Aunspach.

is so not worth the wait. That activity is way cool — I waited in line twice. I am heading back tomorrow to try it again. Don’t waste your time or the effort to walk to that one.” When asked if he got to shoot stuff, Andrew, a raising junior, answered, “Yup and it was great!” When taps played at 10:30 p.m, Troop 1710 were wearily in their cots; for tomorrow was another day and more adventures await.

Planned upgrades of the campaign include the purchase of theatre seating and an HVAC system. Phillips also said the theatre already has various resources in place, including “a black-box theater, an excellent projection and audio system, a big screen and a working concession area.” An application for taxexempt status (501-c3) has been filed, which will benefit the foundation in tax savings but also will allow for the charitable donations by the theatre’s many supporters to be tax exempt. Finally, the theatre also will become a venue for live performances in the coming months. The Foundation Board has always envisioned the Firehouse Theatre to be not only a space for intelligent films but also “a very positive community-building operation” will see this objective realized as the Ashland Firehouse Theatre begins a relationship with a live theatre troupe from Mechanicsville. The Ville Players of Haymarket II Productions has expressed interest in leas-

ing the Ashland Firehouse Theatre for rehearsals and live performances. Pam Beatty, vice president of Haymarket II, said, “The combination of film, live theatre and fine art will certainly provide area residents with culture, education, and, above all, fun-filled evenings to come.” “We hope to be up and running in the new space in time to provide residents with ‘A Magical Madrigal Christmas’ in December,” she said. The Firehouse Theatre plans to screen several Christmas Classics in December as well.

postpartum hemorrhage. Haitiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s maternal mortality rate is 65 times higher than that of the United States. The infant mortality rate is eight times higher.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are eager to get to these women,â&#x20AC;? Brunk said. She also said she estimates that the Jeep will allow midwives and volunteers to reach as many as 4,500 women per year living in the rural mountains of Haiti. Midwives For Haiti made its first official visit to meet and teach skills to Haitian women in 2006. Two years later, the group graduated its first class of eight midwifery-trained Haitian

women. A second class of eight women graduated in 2009. A third class of 11 students will graduate this fall. Then, the fourth class of 12 to 15 women will be selected for January enrollment. All graduates are employed, using their skills in Hinche, Fond Parisiene, Thomassique and Circa La Source to administer prenatal care and help deliver babies safely. Midwives For Haiti estimates that the midwives are seeing close to 1,500 women annually. The Jeep cost about $70,000, not including tax and shipping.

Funding was provided by Bon Secours Health System, the Western Henrico Rotary Club and Heidi Braun, M.D. of Virginia Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Center and husband Alan Pietruszkiewicz of Physical Therapy Solutions. It is the third of its kind refurbished by Jeff Danielâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jeep of Harleysville, Pa. The Jeepâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s built-in features include: â?? 110-watt converter for running ultrasound equipment and recharging phones overnight. â?? Stretcher for transport to St. Therese Hopital. â?? Combination snake-jaw suspension, designed for third-

world countries. â?? Five-foot above-ground air-intake snorkel. â?? Full stainless steel exhaust system and stack with stainless steel heat shield. â?? Interior air-conditioning. â?? Room for six people in the main cab. Side seating in the back can hold eight people comfortably. Up to four people can stand on rails on the Jeeps exterior. â?? Roll-cage with canopy features an eight-foot spooled awning that extends 12 x 24 for shade and privacy (with six-foot side drops). â?? On-board compressed air for filling tires; two spare tires in

overhead roll-cage. â?? Five-speed manual transmission. â?? Two utility lockboxes for spare parts and medications. â?? Extra-ply Kevlar tires for sidewall puncture protection . â?? 4 BT Cummins engine, typically found in midsize vans. â?? Hydro brakes and power steering. â?? Rear differentials from a three-quarter ton pickup truck Dana 60 front and rear axels. Dan Ziegler, owner of Jeff Danielâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jeep Customizing, which performed the refurbishment, and a frequent traveler to Haiti, said the vehicle was built to last 10 to 20 years.

Brunk said most of the village stops have been two to three hours outside Hinche and nearly impossible to reach by car. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the Jeep we anticipate being able to reach them successfully in about an hour and a half,â&#x20AC;? she said. Ronel Elficasse, the driver for volunteers of Midwives For Haiti since 1996, said he is looking forward to parking his 1974 Toyota. ----Updates are being posted at twitter.com/midwives4haiti and on Facebook.

Polegreen Church Foundation to dedicate Visitor Center The Historic Polegreen Church Foundation invites the community to attend a public ceremony -scheduled for noon Tuesday, Sept. 21 -- dedicating its new Visitor Center and Foundation Office building. Over the past year, the Foundation has worked diligently to construct a facility which will provide interpretative space and dedicated restroom facilities for visitors. “Listed on the National

Register of Historic Places, Polegreen is more than just an exit on I-295 or a produce stand in eastern Hanover County,” Foundation director Chris Peace. said. “It is here that the actions of average people set in motion the events that freed our nation and gave the world the American voice of liberty.” In 1990, the Historic Polegreen Church Foundation began its work to preserve the important archeological site now marked by

the well-known steel skeleton outlining the original dimensions of the meetinghouse. Over the past four years, the Foundation has enhanced the historic site to include a timeline of the history of religious freedom, Road to Revolution State Heritage Trail signs, a welcome kiosk and a visitor center and office building. This development compliments the famous silhouette church structure iden-

tifying the site. The Foundation offers a comprehensive set of SOLbased school lesson plans authored by a local public school teacher. A Virginia Commonwealth University professor coordinates school visits to the site as well as leads an Education Advisory Council whose members include a former state superintendant and other area education leaders and historians.

GRANTS Continued from pg. 23 b

These grant awards, and the projects that they fund, will fuel an integral component of the fiveyear action plan that is part of the Regional Plan for Children’s School Readiness. Published in May 2010 by Smart Beginnings Greater Richmond, the Regional Plan represents the community’s consensus on what it will take to achieve school readiness for all of the region’s young children. It also serves as a roadmap, providing a tool for strategic planning, coordinating efforts, achieving economies of scale and measuring progress toward the plan’s goals. “The School Readiness Planning Grants will assist the localities in forming public-private partnerships that will ultimately benefit the children who live there,” Tom Chewning,

chair of Smart Beginnings Greater Richmond, said. “We are especially pleased to fund two applications where two localities will be working cooperatively together.” All of the grant applications submitted to Smart Beginnings Greater Richmond received full funding, which will be disbursed in September. Localities were encouraged to submit multi-jurisdictional collaborative proposals, and four, including Hanover County and Ashland, chose to do so. The School Readiness Planning Grants will assist with implementing the Regional Plan for Children’s School Readiness at the local level. The plan sets regional goals to strengthen the preparation children are receiving before they enter school. To implement the plan, each locality must identify, assess and

address the needs that are specific to their jurisdictions. “What the localities discover through their grant-funded work will ultimately inform the work we do at the regional level,” Barbara Couto Sipe, director of Smart Beginnings Greater Richmond and vice president of Community Impact for United Way, said. “Smart Beginnings will provide grant recipients with support and technical assistance, and in June 2011, the localities will report their findings to us for inclusion in the regional plan.” The grant opportunity was announced in May at a dinner meeting of 120 elected officials and education leaders from throughout the Richmond region. The event was co-sponsored by Smart Beginnings Greater Richmond and the Capital Region Collaborative, a cooperative effort between the Richmond Regional

Planning District Commission and the Greater Richmond Chamber to engage government, community and business stakeholders in enhancing the quality of life in the Richmond region. Smart Beginnings formed a partnership with the Collaborative to increase regional cooperation in addressing needs for early childhood development. “The Capital Region Collaborative has identified early childhood development as an issue that is critical to the health and vitality of the Richmond region,” Robert Crum, executive director of the Richmond Regional Planning District Commission, said. “The meeting in May was an incredible demonstration of the Richmond region’s commitment to this issue, and we are extremely pleased that Smart Beginnings is funding these local efforts to move forward with

school readiness efforts.” In 2009, there were 1,750 children in the Richmond region – 14 percent of the region’s incoming kindergartners – who started school without the language and literacy skills they needed to be successful. These children did not pass the PALS-K test, a key indicator that measures whether kindergarteners are starting school with the basic literacy skills they need. “Research shows that children who start school behind tend to stay behind, and the gap only widens over time,” Couto Sipe said. “This affects not only the child’s school performance, but also affects the entire region and the future of the workforce. A lack of school readiness contributes to tremendous costs in special education, delinquency, teen pregnancy, substance abuse, and lost workforce potential.”

other companies surveyed. “We are excited to announce Bon Secours Richmond Health System’s selection as one of the Working Mother 100 Best Companies for 2010,” Jennifer Owens, senior director, editorial research and initiatives, said. “With a workforce that’s 82 percent female, this company helps moms find work-life balance through a range of initiatives — including making new parents eligible for at least 26 job-guaranteed weeks off and offering three on-site family centers with extended hours and subsidies for employees.”

The community is invited to participate. For more information, call 329-5420.

Bon Secours Richmond’s work/life programs and company culture especially earned high marks when compared to other companies surveyed. Mariah Jensen, chief nurse executive of Bon Secours’ Richmond Community Hospital, is the mother of three young children and has used all three on-site Bon Secours Family Centers. “Having daycare on site has been a tremendous help to me,” Jensen said. “Bon Secours is constantly looking at new opportunities to improve our work/life balance.” While the Working Mother 100 Best Companies continue expanding their benefits, those

at other American companies lag. Just 44 percent of American companies offer telecommuting (vs. 100 percent of the 100 Best), 17 percent offer formal mentoring (vs. 95 percent), and 37 percent offer health insurance for part-timers (vs. 100 percent). In contrast, the 100 Best Companies offer paid maternity leave, lactation rooms, flextime, mental health consultations and elder-care resources; and 98 percent offer health screening and wellness programs. Profiles of these 100 Best Companies, as well as national comparisons, are in the October issue of Working Mother and at workingmother.com/bestcompanies.

Cheatham and Hawks rumble past Patriots 49-21 By Dave Lawrence For The Mechanicsville Local Hanover’s Deane Cheatham, with the help of a dominant offensive line, ran at will over host Patrick Henry Friday night, gaining 138 yards on 18 carries and scoring four touchdowns to lead the third-ranked Hawks to a 49-21 victory over the Patriots. Not even the presence of legendary coach Patrick Henry coach Ray Long – who was honored at the beginning of the game – could break the stranglehold the Hawks have had on the Patriots lately. The win was the county upstarts’ fifth straight over Patrick Henry. Cheatham repeatedly found holes in the Patriot defenses and quickly surpassed 100 yards rushing. By the end of the first half, he had 117 yards and three touchdowns. He took little credit for his accomplishments afterward, however. “I don’t really want to talk about myself too much,” Cheatham said. “All the credit goes to the offensive line and the receivers. The receivers don’t get a lot of glorification because we run the ball so much, but they’re the guys making the blocks on the edge that are springing those long runs.” Cheatham wasted no time taking advantage of the holes his blockers provided. His first run, to open the first drive of the game, was for 13 yards. His second should have been for

38

47 yards and a touchdown, but it was called back because of a holding penalty. Cheatham didn’t let the penalties shake his faith in his line. “Those guys are working hard. The holding penalties – they’re going to make mistakes up there,” Cheatham said. “I just came back and … told them we’re going to score again. And we kept on scoring.” Two plays later, sophomore quarterback Sam Rogers broke free for 40 yards to set up Cheatham’s first score on a 1-yard run. While Patrick Henry’s defense was preoccupied with Cheatham, it left openings for Hanover’s Rogers to take full advantage of his options. “The thing is, they’re keying on me, he can pull that football and take off with it,” Cheatham said. “He had some great runs.” Rogers finished with seven carries for 79 yards and one touchdown – a 16-yard run in the first quarter. The Hawks’ defense shared in the scoring. Their last touchdown came in the fourth quarter on a fumble recovery in the end zone by Aaron Hall. The high preseason ranking in the Times-Dispatch poll hasn’t caused Hanover coach Josh Just to take postseason play for granted. The touchdown called back because of penalties highlighted things the Hawks (1-0) have to work on. “We’re trying to take it one

game at a time. Our focus is on the team right in front of us,” Just said. “We want to make sure we’re physical, but we’re definitely sloppy. We have to iron all that stuff out. We want to play hard, and we did, but we had too many penalties – too many stupid penalties.” The hard play, however, made a solid impression on the Patriots (0-1). “They punched in the mouth early and we just didn’t

react to it,” said Patrick Henry coach Sam Hart. “They beat us up front. We didn’t tackle well. In all facets of the game, they played really well and we didn’t.” The Patriots didn’t give up, however. Quarterback Jayrin Waller kept getting up, running and throwing despite getting hit hard throughout the game. He kept the Patriots in position to score their last two touchdowns in the fourth quarter.

“Tough kid. He had a real good ball game for us,” Hart said. “He led us as a senior should and offensively he was a big spark for us tonight.” Waller accounted for most of the Patriots’ offense, gaining 76 yards one 13 carries and completing five of 14 passes for 74 yards. He scored one touchdown on the ground and one in the air – on a 7 yard pass to Raymon Minor. Patrick Henry’s road gets no

Hamlin and Gibbs take Richmond by storm JGR take three of top four spots in Air Guard 400 By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com It was Richmond and it was Denny Hamlin, and from that standpoint there was little surprise in the Air Guard 400 on Saturday night. After a slow start, Hamlin raced out front then held off all contenders to take his second consecutive September win at Richmond International Raceway. On Friday, Hamlin and his #11 FedEx crew made the decision to concentrate on race trim rather than qualification trim which resulted in a 14th place start for the Saturday night race. But it only took a few dozen laps for Denny to get his legs and start working his way up through the pack. By lap 94 Hamlin was up to 5th. On lap 105 he was in third then by lap 110 Hamlin was in his regular position at Richmond; out front and going for the win. Hamlin briefly traded the lead with Jimmie Johnson and Clint Bowyer but neither driver was able to maintain their hold out front and quickly ceded to Hamlin who led 251 laps and took the win over Joe Gibbs teammate Kyle Busch. “It feels good, and not to be

greedy but how many did we lose before we broke through?” Hamlin said. “It means a lot. You learn every time you come here little things that make you better and that’s all you can do. You can’t dwell on the times that you lost this race. You’ve got to just push forward and think about the times or what it will take to win the next one.” The victory was Hamlin’s 14th career win in 177 Sprint Cup races. Hamlin also became the third driver to lead 1000 laps at RIR since it was resurfaced in 1988. Busch, who started the race 32nd, began to take off in the final 200 laps due to information passed to his team from Hamlin’s. “They gave us our air pressure that we started running about mid race,” Busch said. “We really started clicking off and going forward.” Busch went from 14th to fourth in 80 laps then climbed up to second, giving Hamlin his greatest challenge of the night over the final 60 laps of the race. “Shouldn’t have told him everything during the race,” Hamlin said. “Gave me a heart attack.” With his sixth win of the season, Hamlin also took the 10 bonus point and the points lead heading into Chase’s final 10 races. “Ten more points, what the

heck,” said Jeff Gordon. “I think everybody knew that Denny was going to be strong here, it’s one of his strongest tracks. They found something lately. I don’t know what it is but they found something. If they can keep that going into the Chase, they’re going to be very, very tough. “They’re really coming into their own, showing their strength and I think they’re going to be really, really tough in the championship,” Gordon said. Hamlin starts the Chase with 5060 points followed closely by Jimmie Johnson (5050), Kevin Harvick (5030), Kyle Busch (5020), Tony Stewart (5010), Greg Biffle (5010) and Jeff Gordon, Carl Edwards, Jeff Burton, Matt Kenseth and Clint Bowyer with 5000 points each. Busch’s second place finish was his 10th top 10 finish in 12 races at RIR. It was also Busch’s 14th top 10 finish this season. Fellow Gibbs teammate Joey Logano finished fourth giving JGR and three of the top four slots. Logano could probably also attribute his success in the race to Hamlin, who gave him a few instructions prior to driver introductions. “Joey just asked me, how do I brake at this racetrack,” Hamlin said. “He didn’t understand how every time we come here everyone’s brakes are glowing red and mine aren’t, yet it looks like I’m entering the corner better or harder. There’s a technique to it.” Hamlin said it also helps that Logano is a good listener. “I feel that Joey is really good at absorbing information and obviously when he gets that information he takes off with it,” Hamlin said. Logano started in sixth but fell back to 17th 100 laps in. But it appeared that he soon figured out what Hamlin was

Yellow Jackets sting No. 19 Johns Hopkins Randolph-Macon touchdown in final minute pulls out 41-37 win By Dave Lawrence For The Mechanicsville Local Johns Hopkins’ Top-20 football team came to the center of the universe yesterday and found a black hole of despair. The Blue Jays, ranked No. 19 nationally by D3football.com, ran into a dogged RandolphMacon host who refused to admit defeat. The Yellow Jackets, down 37-34 with less than a minute left in the game, scored on a 15-yard pass from Austin Faulkner to Michael Atkinson to claim a 41-37 upset victory. Randolph-Macon (2-0) led through the first half and entered half time with a 20-14 advantage, but fell behind in the third as the Blue Jays (0-1) took advantage of Yellow Jacket mistakes to quickly jump to a 2720 lead. The score should have been 28-20 but for a missed point-after by Johns Hopkins placekicker Alex Lachman. Randolph-Macon tied the game on Thaddeus Scruggs’ 56-yard touchdown and Josh Storm’s kick with 3:55 left in the quarter. The teams swapped leads throughout the fourth quarter. With little more than five minutes to go and the Blue Jays beginning what would be their next-to-last drive with a 37-34 lead, Randolph-Macon head coach Pedro Arruza made a promise to his defense. “I told the defense that if you guys get us the ball back, we’re going to score,” Arruza said, “and we did.” Randolph-Macon’s passcatch combination of Faulkner and Earl Peoples proved especially deadly for Johns Hopkins on their final scoring drive.

Starting with 1:46 in the game, Faulkner connected with Peoples for three straight first-downs on distances of 19-, 13- and 25yards, respectively, to advance from the Yellow Jacket 10 to the Blue Jay 27. After an incomplete pass attempt to Peoples, he caught a 16-yard pass to the Johns Hopkins’ 11. One penalty and one run later, Faulkner found Atkinson in the righthand corner of the end zone. “I don’t really know what to say. [The ball] was just there,” Atkinson said. “Austin put the ball where it needed to be. It was just up to me to catch it.” Faulkner never lost confidence in his arm, despite throwing two interceptions in the second half. “You’ve just got to forget and move on,” said Faulkner, who finished with 24 completions in 29 attempts for 302 yards. “You can’t play football with a long memory. You’re never going to play a perfect game. You’re always going to screw up here and there, and if you just let that haunt you during the game, then you’re not going to be able to rebound from it.” While Faulkner and Peoples were spearheading the Yellow Jackets’ passing attack, Scruggs was nearly unstoppable on the ground, rushing 27 times for 190 yards and three touchdowns. “I give it all to my line, to be honest with you,” Scruggs said. “I’d probably be in the backfield every play if it wasn’t for my line.” The Blue Jays looked in control before Randolph-Macon’s final scoring drive. Leading 37-34, they drove to the Yellow Jackets’ 41-yard line. Instead of going for it on fourth down, two yards to go, and less than two minutes left in the game, Johns Hopkins head coach Jim Margraff decided to punt.

Randolph-Macon running back Thaddeus Scruggs (34) gains some tough first half yards against the Blue Jay defense. Scruggs carried 27 times for 190 yards including touchdown runs of 44 and 56 yards in the Yellow Jackets 41-37 win over No. 19 Johns Hopkins.

“That’s the decision the coach makes and we obey the coach,” said Blue Jay quarterback Hewitt Tomlin, who completed 20 of 38 passes for 384 yards, three interceptions and one touchdown. “He decided to punt, so we punt the ball, you know, and put the game in the defense’s hands.” Johns Hopkins’ running back Jonathan Rigaud said the Blue Jays made too many mistakes. “Offensively, we started off kind of slow, but picked things up in the second half,” said Rigaud, who finished with 22 carries for 88 yards and two touchdowns. “We didn’t do everything we needed to come out and win.”

The two teams have a history of close games – including a last-minute 35-31 victory by Johns Hopkins in Baltimore last year and a 39-31 triple-overtime win by the Blue Jays in Ashland in 2008. “This is pretty standard for playing Randolph-Macon, they’re a very good team,” Margraff said. He went on to compliment the Yellow Jackets’ Peoples, who finished with 12 receptions for 139 yards – 73 of them on Randolph-Macon’s final scoring drive. “He’s a great player, and great players make great plays in big situations.” The Yellow Jackets return to action this Saturday when they host Shenandoah at 1 p.m.

New PSU setter adds energy, enthusiasm Kristin Carpenter is always willing to help out a teammate -- even if it means she’ll fall flat on her face. At a track practice in high school, Carpenter -- now a sophomore on the Penn State women’s volleyball team -- was whizzing through hurdles. Her friend, however, was lagging behind. Carpenter turned around to offer encouragement, but while doing so, took a nasty spill. The next weekend Carpenter had a club volleyball tournament. With a busted lip, swollen cheeks and a look her father, Curtis, describes as “really, a pretty sight,” she arrived in a T-shirt inked with a slogan she designed herself: “I fell over a freaking hurdle. That’s what happened.” It’s that light-hearted determination that has made Carpenter one of the most energetic players on the No. 1 Nittany Lions’ roster. It has also helped her become

the team’s new starting setter. “[Carpenter is] a really critical part of our team’s success,” junior Katie Kabbes said. “She’s a spunky little player.” In late August at the Lions’ season-opening tournament in North Carolina, Carpenter played a majority of the firstteam reps at setter. And she shined, quarterbacking an offense that attacked at a .461 clip in the weekend’s finale against Campbell. Her performance gave her a slight edge -- for now -- over freshman Mikinzie Moydell in the race to replace the graduated Alisha Glass as the team’s starting setter. Carpenter played so well she even received a compliment from the team’s biggest critic -coach Russ Rose. “At the end of the tournament, Coach looked at me and said he likes the way I work hard and likes the way I play,” Carpenter said. “He doesn’t give compliments too often, so you take it once you get one.” The comment was especially sweet for Carpenter, who wasn’t even recruited as a setter.

The bubbly 5-foot-6 Mechanicsville, Va., native, who is rarely seen without a smile, came to Penn State as a defensive specialist. But Kabbes said Carpenter is incredibly athletic, she can play anywhere on the court. It’s true. Since her volleyball career began at age 8, when she would tag along with older sister, Kasey, to varsity high school practices, Carpenter has played every single position on the court. “Even middle hitter,” Curtis Carpenter said. “When she was 12 playing on a 14’s team, her coach once was mad at the middles, so he put Kristin in. That definitely took people by surprise.” Carpenter has been impressing people ever since. Wendy Wadsworth, who coached Carpenter for four years at Hanover High School, said Carpenter would’ve started as an eighth grader if the school would’ve allowed it. “Her athleticism is really remarkable,” Wadsworth said. “She probably would’ve been our best middle, our best libero,

our best right side hitter. Heck, the football coach would’ve wanted her on the football team.” The Hawks retired Carpenter’s No. 5 jersey -before she even graduated. Now, she’s looking to make the same kind of impact for Penn State, the three-time defending national champions. And Wadsworth has no doubt Carpenter will. “She has a love of the game and a willingness to do anything,” Wadsworth said. “She kind of just wanted to prove to people you don’t have to be 6-foot-whatever to be a great volleyball player.” At practice, Rose will often ask Carpenter, “Where do you want to play?” And, according to Curtis Carpenter, her answer is always the same. “Wherever you need me, Coach.” From the August 31 issue of The Daily Collegian, the student newspaper of Penn. State University. Emily Kaplan is a staff writer for the Daily Collegian.

Former Hanover standout Kristin Carpenter is ready to take on a starting role as setter with the Penn St. volleyball team. As a sophomore with the No. 1 ranked Nittany Lions, Carpenter joins the starting lineup on a team that has won three consecutive NCAA championships and held a 109 match winning streak that ended on Sunday with a loss to No. 2 Stanford.

HAMPDEN-SYDNEY, VA In a game featuring two NCAA Tournament teams from a season ago, Hampden-Sydney prevailed 21-19 over USA South foe North Carolina Wesleyan. Though the Tigers took an early 21-6 lead, NCW hung in the game, and made it 21-19 with 45 seconds to go on a Jordan Van six-yard scamper. Hampden-Sydney, however, came up with the big stop on the two-point conversion attempt and improved to 2-0 on the young season. After H-SC defense forced two three-and-outs, the Tigers were the first to strike when junior

Travis Lane (Mills Godwin) hit Sean Cavanagh (Clover Hill) for a six yard touchdown pass to go up 7-0. NC Wesleyan stepped up on the ensuing drive, putting together a 17 play, 63-yard drive that ended with a one yard touchdown run from Teron Bush. Kevin Quicker, though, failed to connect on the extra point attempt to preserve the Tiger lead at 7-6. Once Hampden-Sydney got the ball back, the offense continued to roll, marching 76 yards down the field. The drive included three catches by junior Kyle

Vance for a combined 56 yards with the final 20 yard reception for the score. Down 14-6, the Bishops were close to scoring with a 33yard field goal attempt, but they were thwarted by Shane Clarke (Manchester) who soared in to block the field goal. Neither team could find the endzone for the next 13 minutes, but it was the Tiger defense, which had held North Carolina Wesleyan to just two first downs in that stretch, that scored next when Trevor Ikwild batted a Jordan Vann goal line pass attempt into the hands of Will

Riggenbach (Clover Hill) for the Tigers’ third touchdown of the day to go up 21-6. The third quarter was a defensive battle, with only six first downs in 15 minutes - five of them belonging to the Tigers. Kirk Rohle (Hanover) accounted for three of the first downs while rushing for 51 yards in the stanza. North Carolina Wesleyan got back on the board early in the fourth with a 21 yard return on a Desmond Joyner interception for a touchdown. Down just 21-13, the Bishops compiled another drive that lead to the

Hampden-Sydney eight yard line. It looked like they’d strike when Jordan Vann threw to the endzone, but senior Bill Doody saved the day with an interception to stop the drive. Hampden-Sydney managed to start a drive that made it into Bishops territory, but were forced to punt downing the Bishops at their own three yard line. Jordan Vann had a big drive with just 2:21 left on the clock, leading his team 97 yards down field while completing 5-of-6 passes for 89 yards. He then ran the final six yards to bring the Bishops within two at 21-19.

On the two-point conversion attempt, Teron Bush failed to hit Taylor Revelle allowing the Tigers to hold on to their lead and run the clock out. On the day, Rohle had a game-high 144 all purpose yards with 118 rushing and 26 receiving. Lane was 20-for-37 with 192 yards, two touchdowns and five interceptions. Vance led the Tiger receiving core with six receptions for 80 yards and a touchdown while Cavangh also had six grabs and 74 yards and a touchdown.

No napping with NASCAR notes from RIR By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Burton knows about having a good time While many NASCAR drivers live for the intensity of the Chase, South Boston’s Jeff Burton looks at the final 10 races differently. “This is the most fun 10 weeks of the year,” Burton said. “This is what you live for. Every time I get in the Chase, I tell myself I waited my whole life to be in this position, so that’s a hell of a cool thing.” Burton, driver of the #31 Caterpillar Chevy feels many his competitors are overcome by the intensity of the Chase. “We tend to get caught up in the pressure of it,” he said. “But man, we’re playing a game and it’s supposed to be fun.” But that does not mean Burton should be taken lightly when the Chase gets under way. “My deal is that I’m going to go race as hard as I know how to race,” he said. “I’m going to ask my team to work as hard as they know how to work. We’re going to work together and try to defeat problems, but we’re going to have fun with it.” One Devil of an answer After Jimmie Johnson, driver of the #48 Lowes Chevrolet, has won four consecutive Sprint Cup titles, some wonder if he is vulnerable to being knocked off this season. Jeff Burton thinks so. “They are vulnerable as everybody is vulnerable,” Burton said. “There is no team in any situation that is not vulnerable. Tiger Woods is vulnerable; the Lakers are vulnerable; The Yankees are vulnerable; everybody is-” But Burton quickly amended his answer, “-Duke’s not- but everybody else is.” Peak a BOO for Stewart Behind the wheel of the #14

NASCAR driver Matt Kenseth experienced one of those unexpected parenting moments prior to the start of the Air Guard 400 at Richmond International Raceway. As Kenseth chatted with driver Jimmie Johnson, his 14 month old daughter Kaylin Nicola decided pit road was a good place to lay down for a nap.

Old Spice/Office Depot Chevy, driver Tony Stewart picked up his first win of the season last week at Atlanta, one race shy of the beginning of the Chase. But don’t ask Stewart if he is peaking at the right time. “The phrase of peaking at the right time is the dumbest phrase I’ve ever heard anybody say,” Stewart admonished reporters. “So if any of you guys use it you’re idiots because there’s not such thing as a peak. This is a sport where the technology never stops so how can

you peak when the next week what you have isn’t the same as what you need. There’s no such thing as peaking at the right time there’s only momentum.” It’s called teamwork With Stewart’s ire already raised, perhaps it wasn’t a good idea to ask if he would use information from teammate Ryan Newman to help him in the Chase. “What do you think we’ve been doing all the way to this point?” he asked. “Why do you think we have multi-car teams?

Come on, get caught up, get in the game here. That’s why you build multi-car teams so they can share information and learn from each other. You’re going into ground that’s been covered since Joe Gibbs and Rick Hendrick started multi-car teams 15-20 years ago. This is nothing new.” Entering the big unknown Every driver has points of uncertainty, consternation…an unknown that they must contend with in their preparations to come out on top in the Sprint

Cup Chase. “For me the big unknown is Charlotte,” said Carl Edwards, driver of the #99 Kelloggs/ Cheez-It Ford. “Obviously, Talladega, Martinsville, those are going to be one and two on the bottleneck. Those are going to be races you have to make it through. But, for our team, I think it’s Charlotte. We’ve run really well there; and we’ve run really terribly there.” As his team approaches this arena of ambiguity and duplicity, Edwards wish is for good

information from his teammates. “As a group, I hope we can go there and figure that place out and have a good race there....The way our mile and a half program has been…I think we’re set to run it really well. “It’s just Charlotte,” Edwards said. “Even though it’s a mile and a half, it’s just different.” More scary thoughts For all practical purposes, there was only one slot in the see NASCAR, pg. 43 `

Chase left up for grabs on Saturday night. Greg Biffle needed to simply come in 43rd or better to secure his spot, but Clint Bowyer, driver of the #33 Cheerios/ Hamburger Helper Chevy, had a little more work to do. Bowyer held a 117 point lead over Ryan Newman, driver of the #39 U.S. ARMY Chevy. Ironically, Bowyer and Newman were garaged side by side during Cup practice and the two were often seen talking. Was Newman using the moment to try to get into Bowyer’s head? “I don’t what to get inside Clint’s head,” Newman laughed. “That’s scary enough racing next to him let along getting inside his head.” It appeared that Newman was not alone. Even Bowyer’s teammate, points leader Kevin Harvick was not about to offer advice. “No,” he laughed. “I just don’t even want to be near him.” It’s not like we aren’t trying It has been a long dry spell for Dale Earnhardt Jr. and the driver of the No. 88

HANOVER COUNTY 2010 REAL ESTATE TAX NOTICE SECOND HALF DUE OCTOBER 5, 2010 Notice is herewith given that all second half 2010 Hanover County real estate taxes are due and payable on or before October 5, 2010. Anyone owning property who has not received a bill and whose real estate taxes are not processed by their Mortgage Company may go on-line to www.co.hanover.va.us to pay, review, and/or print their bill(s), or may call the Hanover County Treasurer’s office at 365-6050 or 730-6050. Failure to receive a bill does not relieve the owner of penalty and interest if payment is not made by the due date. Tax bills are sent to owners of record on January 1, 2010; therefore, if property was conveyed by you in 2010, you should forward the bill to the new owner. If you purchased a parcel during 2010, contact the Treasurer’s office to have a copy of the tax bill forwarded to you. If you are 65 years old or over, or are permanently disabled, you may qualify for real estate tax relief. There are very specific criteria which must be met, including residing on the property. You must apply for tax relief each year between January 1 and March 1 with the Commissioner of the Revenue’s office. For questions, phone 365-6128 or 730-6128. M.

The shorter days and cooler nights that fall brings mean entertaining that once took place on porches, patios and decks is slowly beginning to wane. Soon, family and friends will gather inside the home for holiday festivities, putting the spotlight back on some of the most-used rooms, one of which is the guest bath. For most people, overnight house guests go handin-hand with the holidays. Rather than waiting until the last minute, when stress levels are already high, fall is the ideal time to begin preparing for company and refresh the guest bath. You can do a few simple things long before anyone arrives to ensure their stay is a comfortable one. In fact, updating a tired bathroom can be an easy goal to achieve on any budget. You don’t need tens of thousands of dollars. Instead, a little paint, the proper tools, a few decorating elements and some creativity will do the trick.

Changing the color of a room with interior paint is the easiest, most cost-effective and most dramatic transformation that can be made. Since a guest bathroom can be one of the smaller rooms in a home, use colors that are light and airy. This will open up the space, making it appear larger than it really is. And, even if the guest bath is used by other family members during the rest of the year, remember that it should feel welcoming, so avoid stark whites or overly bright and trendy colors. Most importantly, don’t skimp on the painting tools. Since the walls will be the largest visual area in the bathroom, you want to ensure a professional-looking finish that can only be achieved using high-quality painting tools. Purdy’s new mini-roller system will provide a flawless finish, and its compact lightweight design helps to paint tight spaces - like behind a

The perfect energy-saving DIY home improvement project for fall

W

hen it comes to doit-yourself projects that will save money on energy costs, there are many new products on the market that make it possible to save hundreds of dollars over time, with just a few hours of easy installation. Few of these products come close to the long-term benefits of installing radiant barrier foil in your attic. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even a federal tax credit (available on your 2010 federal tax return) to help you recoup up to $1,500 on your purchase price through the American Recovery Tax Credit. As temperatures drop, installing a radiant barrier in your attic space becomes much more comfortable. When warmer weather returns, you can relax without having to turn on the air conditioner as often and as a result, enjoy reduced cooling costs. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the main benefit of installing a radiant barrier, according to Rick Jordan of EcoRite Products, a major radiant barrier manufacturer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know of any product that is this easy to install that does as much for reducing the stress on your cooling or heating systems as a radiant barrier,â&#x20AC;? Jordan says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On average, attics that have radiant barriers installed are 30 degrees cooler than they were before the product was installed. That equates to a significant amount of heat that is not baking down through the ceiling of a home, causing the air conditioner to stay on longer and work harder.â&#x20AC;? A radiant barrier works in your home similar to the way a reflective foil car shade works in your car. Just as a car shade keeps the interior of an auto cooler when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parked in the sun, radiant barriers keep

your homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interior cooler when installed in your attic where the sunâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s radiant energy is absorbed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Enerflex looks a lot like quilted aluminum foil. It is made of a durable, highly reflective, double-sided metallic film that you install to the underside of a roof between the rafters. From an installation standpoint, it couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be easier,â&#x20AC;? Jordan says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is no need to secure the product with adhesive, so installation moves quickly.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Radiant barrier installation should be viewed not so much an expense, but as an investment. Homeowners are repaid over time through lower utility bills, particularly in the summer, but wintertime savings can also be realized,â&#x20AC;? Jordan says. In the winter, a radiant barrier basically performs in reverse, helping to keep rising heat from the homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interior from escaping through the roof. Radiant barriers typically are twice as effective in the summer months as in winter months.

Enerflex Radiant Barrier is mold- and mildew-resistant, will not harbor insects, and is Class A fire rated. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s available from building material dealers nationwide. You can find places that sell the product by visiting www.enerflexfoil.com. The Florida Solar Energy Center has conducted numerous studies on radiant barrier installation and found that, under peak daytime heat conditions, the total heat transfer allowed down through attics can be reduced by as much as 40 percent, which can significantly reduce the load demand of an air conditioning system. Design of your home also makes a difference: Whether it is a one-story or two-story home, the homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s age, the type of roof, whether your roof has shade, your HVAC systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efficiency, the type of insulation installed and local energy rates all contribute to your potential for individual cost savings. If you are unsure how to install radiant barrier in your home, ask a home improvement expert. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Courtesy of ARAcontent

spot is now within reach of homeowners as well: free plans for the Frederica Park Gazebo are now available via download at www. realoutdoorliving.com. As more and more homeowners search for cost-effective yet attractive ways to add more value to their current home, the popularity of backyard projects continues to grow, even past the traditional outdoor season. “People tend to associate their outdoor living space as a fun spot during the spring and summer,” explains Brad Staggs, HGTV and DIY show host and a licensed contractor. “There are so many ways to extend the use of your outdoor living area well into fall and winter, too — it’s a great time to get outside with family and friends and enjoy the cooler weather, beautiful fall colors and changing seasons.” Consider these additional projects to extend the time spent outdoors with your family: a beautiful wood deck, a porch swing, a picnic table or perhaps some nice planter boxes, brimming will fall blooms.

Once you decide to build the Frederica Park Gazebo, or any other outdoor living project, do your homework when it comes to choosing building products. The market is flooded with options right now, but which one is right for you? For strength, durability, beauty and the best environmental choice, choose pressure-treated wood. Every project listed above can be completed using pressuretreated wood, and you won’t break the bank in the process. According to Staggs, “It’s always a good idea to use treated lumber in projects that will be exposed to ground contact or

outdoor elements on a consistent basis. And the strength and durability of real wood ensures that your project will be around for years to come.” In addition, choosing pressure-treated wood is a strong environmental decision. The majority of pressure-treated wood available in big-box retailers or through independent lumber dealers will be locally grown wood from sustainably managed forests. Wood is a natural, authentic resource, and our forests are in better shape today than they were a century ago. Worried about the maintenance of a real wood structure such as a gazebo or deck? No need; while no product intended for outdoor use is truly maintenance free, real wood comes pretty close. Think of it as annual maintenance for your backyard: just as you clean your house or wash and wax your car to keep them maintained, check your backyard structures once a year for any nail pops or wood damage. More information on what to look for and how to treat it quickly is available in the Authentic Deck Guide, available for free download at www.realoutdoorliving.com. For complete gazebo plans and a materials list, please visit www.realoutdoorliving.com and look under Creative Projects. For more information on pressure-treated wood including projects, plans and podcasts, please visit www.realoutdoorliving.com. — Metro Services


MAKEOVER Continued from pg. 2 b

Hardware Dated cabinet hardware can easily be brought back to life with a coat of primer and paint. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re willing to use a little elbow grease and purchase an inexpensive can of spray paint, you can transform any dingy handle or knob. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to stick to traditional paint color choices, either. There are a variety of metallic spray paints available such as chrome, copper, brass and satin nickel that mimic the look of these expensive finishes that you can coordinate with your other accessories and fixtures.

Details With any room refresh, the difference is in the details,

especially in a small space like the guest bath. Pick up some new linens before your visitors come to town - new bath and hand towels that are plush and soft, not faded or worn, can really make the room feel inviting. For an added touch, hang a new shower curtain and liner to coordinate with your new color scheme. Keep it a lighter color to allow natural or overhead light to filter through; you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want your guests showering in the dark. Stock up on all of the essentials. From toiletries to a comfy robe, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always a great idea to keep supplies on hand in case your guests need something. By taking the necessary steps to prep your guest bath before the hustle and bustle of the holidays, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to relax and enjoy it right along with your visitors. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Courtesy of ARAcontent

Autumn leaf clean-up The autumn foliage can be beautiful to admire. However, once the trees are past their peak and begin to drop their leaves, autumn can mean lots of yard work for homeowners. A mature tree can have more than 200,000 leaves, most of which will fall to the ground when the cooler weather arrives. Multiply that amount by the number of trees on the property, and one can see what a task removing leaves can be. Depending on the size of a person’s property, leaf removal can be an all-day project. However, when done right, one ensures the lawn underneath the leaves con-

tinues to thrive and will be in a better position to ride out the winter. For most, a human-powered rake is the best tool for removing leaves. While blowers might seem quicker, they can simply disperse the leaves instead of congregate them for easier disposal. What’s more, blowers can be noisy and distribute fuel emissions into the air. It is important to rake deep enough to disturb the thatch or dried up grass and other debris that can form in the lawn. This helps prevent the lawn from suffocation or discoloration. Leaves can be gathered and packed into biodegradeable bags and brought to the local recycling center. They also can be bro-
