Residents tell committee about Internet troubles By Melody Kinser mkinser@mechlocal.com From Old Church to Beaverdam, the cry is the same: We want better Internet service. Residents were unanimous in expressing their position in public meetings held Oct. 3 and 5 in Montpelier and Mechanicsville, respectively. The Hanover County Board of Supervisors impaneled a High School Internet Committee earlier this year and tasked members with providing a comprehensive study regard-

ing resources, the problems and solutions. Steve Ellis, who lives in the Beaverdam District, moderated the Mechanicsville meeting and told a packed room at the library the goal is “to try to bring high speed Internet to as many people in Hanover County as possible at a cost they can afford.” Frustration and interest topped the reactions received, he added. The committee is scheduled to report its findings to the supervisors in December. Among issues addressed

Local student helps kids with disabilities in sports Brittany Long, a Longwood University senior from Mechanicsville, has been instrumental in two Farmville-area sports programs for children with disabilities. Long is the league coordinator of the Challenger Division of Little League Baseball Inc., which was launched in May 2009 by faculty members in Longwood’s Department of Health, Athletic Training, Recreation and Kinesiology (HARK). She recently started a bowling program that is an outgrowth of Challenger baseball. Challenger baseball, LONG whose games are played over six weeks in the spring at Cumberland County High School near Farmville, completed its third season earlier this year. The bowling program will be held for six consecutive Saturday mornings from Sept. 24 through Nov. 19 in the bowling alley in Longwood’s Student Union building. Both Challenger baseball and the bowling program are free. Long, a graduate of Lee-Davis High School, is the daughter of Bonnie and J.R. Long. She is a member of Phi Epsilon Kappa, a national professional fraternity for health and physical education, and served for three years as president of PHETE First, an organization for students in Longwood’s Physical & Health Education Teacher Education program. She has coordinated Challenger baseball the past two years; has assisted with therapeutic horseback riding lessons for an organization in Rice called Heartland Horse Heroes; teaches an adapted aquatics class and a fam-

Candidates share platforms HABCC hosts forum for four districts in supervisors’ races By Melody Kinser mkinser@mechlocal.com Candidates for four the seven districts served by the Hanover County Board of Supervisors brought their platforms to members of the Hanover Association of Businesses and Chamber of Commerce last week. On Tuesday, Oct. 4, the HABCC hosted candidates seeking supervisors’ seats in the Chickahominy, Cold Harbor, Henry and Mechanicsville districts at Islamorada Fish Company in Ashland.

CHICKAHOMINY DISTRICT Republican Angela C. KellyWiecek said she has 20 years of experience in the private sector and now works as an independent industrial marketing consultant. Her platform includes: “great schools, outstanding public safety and sound financial management.” As for the latter, she said, there is “always room for improvement.” She said the county needs to “leverage all that we have to offer and bring some strategic economic development,” including “more destination retail, complementary businesses to the hospital [Memorial Regional Medical Center] and other medical related industries, which would be an ideal fit for Hanover, and

help us reduce our tax burden and provide jobs for our families.” She also talked about the challenges facing the county over the next couple of years. “We’re not seeing that strong growth and recovery that we’d like to.” She said county government leaders should “think very carefully about our expenditures, our planning.” She said she would bring “decisive leadership” to the office and work well with the Virginia General Assembly. James M. “Jim” Ellis Jr., an independent, said he pursued the seat in 2007. Employed by the University of Virginia, he said he has a flexible schedule. “I believe I have time enough to do this job. I know the job takes more time than you think it will.” Ellis said he views a political campaign “as essentially a job interview. It’s a very long job interview, so I’ve brought my resume here today. I know what I look for in a new employee.” He said he had “good technical skills too.” He also said the roles and responsibilities of the private sector and public sector “are different but they have to complement each other. You have to have a good team approach. My philosophy is that, as the peoples’ representative, there has to be open-mindedness.” Ellis said he would “like to see more public parks when

we have large developments to help bolster neighborhoods.” He also said the supervisors’ meeting should be televised or webcast. In February, Robert R. Setliff announced he would not seek re-election to the seat he has held for two terms.

COLD HARBOR DISTRICT

are significant to the office. Independent Carol S. Cash talked about her experience and success as principal at LeeDavis. “It happened because we worked together.” She said she would “bring those leadership skills to the Board of Supervisors. I understand the people who work for us from the perspective of the spouse.” Her husband had a military career. With a background in education, she said she supports the “education of our youth.” She expressed her support for first responders. “We must have a safe community and manage growth that is compatible. We need to provide a more balanced tax base and expand our opportunities.” Cash said she would “be responsive to the residents of the Cold Harbor community as well as the county” and “do it in a compatible fashion for the people of the community.” She said she has been reviewing the county’s economic data and the strategic plan. “While the strategic plan has made commitments regarding the support of businesses,” she said, “we have a long way to go.”

Lee Mitchell spoke on behalf of incumbent Elton J. Wade Sr., a Republican. Mitchell, a 2003 graduate of Lee-Davis High School, said Wade has served Hanover County for 20 years. He said he formed a Young Republicans Club, with “15 young high schools students who wanted to be involved in county government.” Mitchell said he was having a difficult time “getting someone to come speak. Elton called, ‘I want to come speak to you.’ ” Mitchell said Wade “showed up with three boxes of pizza and we had a blast. We were able to have a moment together and it was a really cool experience.” He said voters should consider a supervisor who has a passion for the people. “I really truly believe HENRY DISTRICT Mr. Wade cares. “When you are Republican Sean Davis a public servant ,you serve for said he served his country as a the people only.” Mitchell also said that leadership and under- United States Marine and folsee CANDIDATES, pg. 7  standing the economic issues

OPINION | The Local Views From the editor

Take the time to thank a firefighter We know they’re there. We know what they do. We know they put their lives on the line for us. But do we take the time to thank them? They are firefighters — and we should express our appreciation to them whenever possible. Fire Prevention Week kicked off on Sunday and continues through Saturday. This year’s theme is “It’s Fire Prevention Week! Protect Your Family from Fire!” As Hanover County residents, we are blessed to have so many dedicated career and volunteer firefighters protecting us. According to the National Fire Prevention Association, Fire Prevention Week “was established to commemorate the Great Chicago Fire, the tragic 1871 conflagration that killed more than 250 people, left 100,000 homeless, destroyed more than 17,400 structures and burned more than 2,000 acres. The fire began on October 8, but continued into and did most of its damage on October 9, 1871.” Fire Prevention Week observance started in 1922. For more information about Fire Prevention Week, visit http://www. firepreventionweek.org on the National Fire Prevention Association’s website.

☞ Covered the High Speed Internet Committee meeting at the Mechanicsville Library last Wednesday evening and was surprised to learn how many residents deal with little or practically no service. The committee is gathering information and will be making recommendations to the Board of Supervisors in December about its findings. The Mechanicsville meeting was informative — and hopefully constructive. County leaders are trying to make a difference in this issue. Let’s hope high speed access will be available to all residents soon. Melody Kinser

He said Ed Gaskin, the new economic development director, supports the efforts for high speed Internet. The service, Ellis said, “is going to be a selling point to attracting quality business.” To maintain the AAA rating, “excellent finances, excellent leadership, excellent schools, we have to have the infrastructure.” Due to the positives the county enjoys, Ellis also said “We lose out on the opportunity to get federal funding and state grants.”

The Mechanicsville Local

October 12, 2011

As a retiring member of the Hanover County Board of Supervisors, I think that it is important to write in support of my fellow board members who are running for reelection in November 2011. These members are: John Gordon (South Anna), Bucky Stanley (Beaverdam), Ed Via (Ashland), Elton Wade (Cold Harbor) and Debbie Winans (Mechanicsville). In my support of these supervisors, it is not that I am against any of their challengers; but I believe that the current board deserves the support and vote of Hanover County citizens. In 2004, Messrs. Gordon, Stanley and Wade joined with the other board members at that time to hire Rhu Harris as the county administrator. This hiring was a key decision in ensuring that Hanover County would continue to operate in a very efficient manner. In 2008, Mr. Via and Ms. Winans joined the board, and the excellent management of Hanover County continued. Through the Board of Supervisors’ leadership, Hanover County has become recognized regionally, statewide and nationally as an example of how local government should operate. In 2010, for the third time, Hanover was named one of the 100 Best Communities for Young People. Recently, BusinessWeek.com named Ashland as “Virginia’s Best Place to Raise Your Kids,” followed by Mechanicsville. In our most recent Citizens’ Survey, 96 percent of respondents rated Hanover as an excellent or good place to live. Hanover has the lowest crime rate and the highest clearance rate in the region. Recently,

the Sheriff ’s Office reported that the crime rate was the lowest in over 35 years. Our Fire/EMS Department has worked very hard to greatly reduce response times. The National Association of Counties recognized this achievement with a special “Best in Public Safety Category” award. Emergency Communications became the 14th Emergency Dispatch Center in the world to be internationally accredited as a Fire Dispatch Center. Hanover is the smallest county in the U.S. to have a triple A bond rating, and this rating saves us $1.7 million annually compared to an A bond rating. Additionally, this bond rating reflects financial health and strength when recruiting prospective businesses. Our real estate tax rate of $.81 is the lowest in the region. We have a Five-Year Financial Plan and a Five-Year Capital Improvements Plan that are both balanced, and the projected real estate tax remains at the current rate of $.81. Our priority/core services, Education, Public Safety and Human Services account for over 77 percent of the General Fund Expenditures and 81 percent of total growth in the 10year period 2000-2010. Hanover County’s cost for providing general government administration services is 82 percent of the statewide per capita average and is the lowest in the region. Hanover County Public Schools leads Virginia with 68 percent of expenditures directed to classroom instruction and has the fourth lowest cost per pupil among divisions with more than 15,000 students. We have an excellent Comprehensive Plan that provides for Hanover to continue to be a predominately rural county. The plan provides for 70 percent of the county to remain rural by targeting high-density growth to the 30 percent of the

county’s designated suburban service area. By having growth in a condensed area, the cost of services will be much less than it would be otherwise. The plan also has goals of providing enough land for economic development to create jobs and expand our tax base to keep real estate taxes low. For more than 20 years, the board has supported a cash proffer plan designed to help the County absorb the cost of growth by providing funding to cover the cost of capital improvements for roads, schools, parks, libraries and Fire/EMS stations. Again, I encourage the citizens of Hanover to support the incumbents running for reelection. Robert R. “Bob” Setliff Mechanicsville

Thanks for correction I would like to thank The Mechanicsville Local and its dedicated staff for their integrity in publishing a correction of the false statements made by my opponent in her press release. I appreciate The Local’s dedication to the truth and to making sure the people of Hanover County are not misled. The journalistic integrity exhibited by your paper is a shining example to other news agencies. Hanover County is fortunate to have The Mechanicsville Local. Sean Davis Mechanicsville

‘Cash for clunkers’ in air conditioning Do Hanover County residents know that we have our own “cash for clunkers” program — and once again it’s your cash and perfectly good “clunkers.” Thanks to our School

Board, Lee-Davis High School has $1,099,670 worth of new air conditioning. I called and questioned county and school officials about how many of the old units were not working properly at the close of the 2010-2011 school year. No one could verify that even one was broken. The Maintenance Department head at Hanover County Public Schools told me that the units were 12 to 15 years old, and that new ones would be more efficient. That would save money in energy savings. How long will it take to recover $1,000,000? As a side note, I have 11 HVAC units on my local business building. Six are over 15 years old, and two are over 25 years old. They work very well and are worth repairing if need be. If your child is not a LeeDavis student, don’t think you missed out. Cold Harbor Elementary School also was on the scheduling block to have all of its HVAC replaced. The Cold Harbor administration likewise could not confirm that even one unit was not working properly at the close of the 2010-2011 school year. One would think that contractors awarded such a huge job would be able to give a very competitive price by the sheer volume of work (66 units at Lee-Davis and 55 units at Cold Harbor). But obviously not. The contractor at Lee-Davis, Gulf Seaboard, charged what breaks down to $16,661.67 per unit. Cold Harbor got a deal with Warwick Plumbing and Heating, who charged only $13,975.15 per unit. That price is only three times what I would pay my contractor for comparable work. Who approved these contracts? Our School Board. Likewise, Patrick Henry High School shared in the HVAC orgy with your tax dollars. I am disgusted at this abuse, waste and mismanagement of taxpayer dollars. see LETTERS, pg. 15

Oppose plan for economy The core thought underlying the Obama Administration’s economic policy surely must be “Everything belongs to the government except what we allow you to keep.” Just days after announcing his so-called “jobs bill” that would cost a staggering $447 billion, he announced he intends to raise taxes by a mindnumbing $1.5 trillion! This out-of-touch President is arrogantly demanding that Congress “Pass this Bill,” which will cost American taxpayers over $235,000 per job even if it works as advertised, which it

Proving that God exists

How can I prove God exists? Let’s think about this logically. I can prove He does exist just as easily as you can doubt. It is your free will choice. Think about this. When I look at a building, how do I know that there was a builder? I cannot see him, hear him, or touch him, (our amazing senses: sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell). Of course, the building is proof that there was a builder. In fact, I couldn’t want better evidence that there was a builder than to have the building in front of me. I don’t need faith to know that there was a builder. All I need are eyes that

can see and a brain that works. Likewise, when I look at a painting, how can I know that there was a painter? Again, the painting is proof positive that there was a painter. I don’t need faith to believe in a painter because I can see the clear evidence. The painting itself is absolutely proof positive that there was a painter. The same principle applies with the existence of God. When I look at creation, how can I know that there was a Creator? I cannot see Him, hear Him, touch Him, taste Him or smell Him. How can I know that He exists? Because creation shows me that there is a Creator. I couldn’t want better proof that a Creator exists than to have the creation in front of me. I don’t need faith to believe in a Creator; all I need are eyes that can see and a brain that works. “For the invisible things of God from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eter-

nal power and Godhead; so that they (people) are without excuse.” (Romans 1:20). If, however, I want the builder to do something for me, then I need to have faith in him. The same applies to God: “Without faith it is impossible to please Him; for He that comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.” (Hebrews 11:6). The smartest scientist in the world cannot create anything from nothing. It cannot be done. He can only use things in God’s creation to make other things. (Read Hebrews 3:4) No one knows how to make a leaf or even a grain of sand from nothing, no one except the Creator God! All around us, the wonders of creation show us how wonderful God, the Creator, is. (Read Psalm 19:1 3) A person who says “there is no God” is see LETTERS, pg. 17

MECHANICSVILLE LOCAL REVIEW

“Becky’s New Car,” which is being performed through Nov. 6 at the Barksdale Theater at Hanover Tavern, has a story about how and why it was written that might be as interesting as the play is delightful. Melissa Johnston Price, who has worked in area theatre for 30 years, creates Becky. Her husband Joe is played by David Bridgewater and Gordon Bass portrays Walter. Becky is caught between trying to fit the pieces of her personal life together that include Joe, a 26-year-old son who can’t seem to find his purpose in

life, and an unintended, slightly romantic relationship with Walter. To make matters more confusing, Becky and Joe’s son Chris, played by Evan Nasteff, meets and falls in love with Walter’s daughter, Kenni (Maggie Roop). As the lead role, Price is the office manager, secretary of an automobile dealership. One day, Walter, a widower, comes in and buys nine cars from her as presents for his employees. He becomes smitten with Becky, and she, in an attempt to

not thinking properly. People call someone who doesn’t believe in God an “atheist.” God calls that person a “fool.” (Read Psalm 14:1) God our Creator gave us the Ten Commandments to show us how we should strive to live. He also warns us in His Word that Judgment Day and Hell are real. And even so we have all disregarded God’s laws and live our own way, and that is why we are all called sinners. God is angry with sinners every day. This means that our fate on Judgment Day is to be cast into Hell. God is forgiving, but only to those who repent of their sins and trust in Jesus Christ. This is our free will choice but our choice has consequences. To say, “I hope I’m going to zHeaven,” is like standing at the open door of an airplane flying 20,000 feet in the air and, when asked, “Have you got your parachute on?.” answering, “I hope so.” Don’t be Foolish. You want to know so! The Bible says there is only one way to Heaven: Belief and trust in God through Jesus Christ. Claudine Rellihan Mechanicsville

Thanks to Tea Party for speaker I am writing to express my sincere gratitude to the Mechanicsville TEA Party for bringing in the world renowned international speaker, Dr. Michael Coffman, to help educate people on the dangers of Agenda 21 and ICLEI. Being that it was my first TEA party type activity, I did not know what to expect, but I must honestly say, that I was pleasantly surprised to be surrounded by a couple hundred very patriotic, warm and friendly people. I also was surprised to find out just how dangerous this United Nations program could be to your private property rights and your ability to use

side monument, or name a bridge or a building in honor of our faithful disappearing taxpayers. Every day the obituary sections of the Times-Dispatch and every week the Herald Progress and The Mechanicsville Local obituaries have names of our taxpayers who have had to give up their jobs due to company policies of, “must be breathing” to work here. These people have slaved all their life, with few or no holiday or vacation pay, no snow days, no sick days, no retirement and no insurance. Very few of the taxpayers get the above benefits but their tax dollars still go to keep the government living in the manner they have become accustomed. They are accustomed to numerous holiI’m wondering if it would days, long vacations, sick days, not be in order to have a road- snow days, short days, good

your private property for gain. I was informed that two of the quickest and easiest ways to get up to speed is to check out the information related to ICLEI on the number one political blog site in the state of Virginia, www.VaRight. com or google “Agenda 21 for Dummies Video.” It is a very powerful nine-minute video. Thanks again and compliments to the Mechanicsville TEA Party for all your success. I will definitely be back to visit very soon. Keep up the good work! Jenna Hawk Mechanicsville

Disappearing taxpayers

retirement, good salaries, good health and life insurance and a on-the-job health and fitness facility. We pay salaries for personnel, and buy the equipment they use to keep us safe, and yet we are charged for delivery to a hospital in case of an emergency. Something is wrong with this picture. I read an interview in the Herald Progress of a person running for re-election to the Board of Supervisors who was just practicing for the first four-year term and now has it figured out and will now start doing things she wants to do. What about doing things the taxpayers want you to do and at the least, do things for the taxpayer? After all, we supply the money to be used for taxpayer services. Here are a few “pet” supervi-

sor sayings that should be illegal and changed: a) Instead of “We have not increased your tax rate,” say “We have instead reassessed your property and increased your tax bill.” b) Instead of “We have found a surplus in the county budget this year,” say “We had a profit in the county budget” so we can now give it away in raises. And a much needed Virginia code change as follows: As reassessing a taxpayer’s home due to a neighbor selling his home is not one of the original Ten Commandments, how about getting our county pages to run down and get a law passed that say’s the following: “No county or government in the world can reassess a taxpayer’s property for more than the taxpayer paid for it until it is sold for more than the taxpayer paid for it.”

Question: Do you know the difference between a natural disaster and a bad government disaster? Answer: Normally, you still have a job and you can recover from a natural disaster. Question: Who is normally affected by bad government disasters, government or the private industry taxpayer? Election time brings you choices of who to put in office. Hanover County this year has what I consider to be the best apparent selection of people ever to run for the Board of Supervisors. We have a professional educator who knows the ends and outs of educating your children and has the know-how of what it takes to continue to find new and better ways to educate.

many people pursue spirituality while never setting foot in a church or reading a bible or quâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ran, and their perception of â&#x20AC;&#x153;godâ&#x20AC;? in no way resembles that of any organized religion, yet their faith is as strong as anyone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. People locked into a specific religion tend to forget these distinctions, but they are critically important. Mr. Lawrence gets this thoroughly confused in his letter, as to a lesser extent does Ms. Landis. Many people have a strong psychological need for spirituality, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing inherently wrong with that. But when that spirituality comes not from within, but from the direction of churches who work to lead you away from reality, knowledge and true moral behavior, then it becomes a crutch and an encouragement to ignorance, and I (and most atheists) have a problem with it. And I have a much bigger problem with it when it tries to

impose itself on me, especially when it does so via the political/governmental arena. To the ladies that quoted scripture, let me remind you that for passages referenced from a book to have meaning to someone, that someone must share your belief in that book. Atheists generally see The Bible for what it is: A book of myth and legend, mostly cannibalized from earlier writings about earlier gods. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But The Bible is the word of God!â&#x20AC;? you say! How do you know this? Because The Bible says it is! Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called â&#x20AC;&#x153;circular logic,â&#x20AC;? and is why no one book can possibly prove itself; corroboration is necessary before acceptance by any thinking person, and the bigger and more encompassing the story, the bigger and more complete the proofs should be. Someone else holding up that same book and telling you that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true is *not* proof.

some fantastic story â&#x20AC;Ś but put him in fancy robes or an expensive suit and stand him in a pulpit, and suddenly the skepticism disappears. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll finish with this thought, and if you think on nothing else, think on this: We are *ALL* atheists. I just happen to believe in one less god than you do. There are thousands of gods that people around the world believe in, yet out of all those gods, you chose a specific one. When you figure out why you rejected all of those other gods for the sake of the one you worship, you might have some understanding of why I reject yours. Steve Sneed Mechanicsville

Via has proven record Nov 8, 2011, Hanover County residents will get to vote for their Board of Supervisors. Some say this local election is just as important as the upcoming 2012 national election and

they are right. Ed Via, supervisor for the Ashland District, is completing his first term with a proven track record. The recent redrawing of district lines changed some of the subdivisions Ed will now represent and over the last several months he has been out meeting and listening to the new voters in the district. Edâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s philosophy is to be accessible to the people, be active in the community voting on and supporting decisions that will best manage the growth rate, bring new services to support the growth, preserve our quality of life and maintain fiscal responsibility for the people. As a small business owner, family man and long-term resident of Hanover, Ed has done an outstanding job in his first term on the Board of Supervisors. I look forward to having him represent the Ashland District for a second term and encourage others to also vote for Ed on Nov 8. Scott Byrnes Mechanicsville

promotion, which means she has to travel to an area where Walter lives, making it easier for her to see him. Joe is a roofer, and, in an attempt to expand his business and stay closer to Becky, he bids on a job in the area. The job is to put a new roof on Walter’s house, and, in traveling to inspect the house, he stops by an apartment he rents. Joe observes that it looked like no one has stayed at the apartment and asked Becky where she is staying. By the middle of the second act, Joe has figured out what is going on and even who Walter is. When confronted, Becky has no answer and the scene moves on and finds her at the dealership. There are two identical cars on the lot: hers and another belonging to a depressed widow. The woman comes to pick up her car, and drives off in Becky’s. Becky gives chase and when she loses the woman in her car, she keeps driving. The depressed woman in Becky’s car drives off a cliff and commits suicide. The

car plunges into the ocean, and, when it is found, Becky’s purse and identification cards are retrieved. Several days later, the woman’s body washes up, and now Becky is a missing person. In the end, Becky returns home where she is confronted by Joe, Walter, Chase and Kenni. Chase proposes to Kenni, and she leaves the stage telling him she needs time to think about an answer. Walter gives Chase a family engagement ring and tells him to go after her and not to worry, she’ll come around. Walter is the next to exit the stage, leaving Becky and Joe holding hands as the play ends. As for the writing of the play, it was a birthday present from Charles Staadecker to his wife Benita on her 60th birthday. The Staadeckers, who live in Seattle, Wash., flew cross county to attend the play. “In October 2006, my husband asked me what I wanted for my birthday that is in January,” she said while talking in the Barksdale lobby before the play. “”I told him, ‘Surprise me.’ ” Benita had no idea her husband would come up with what she would call “the NEW LISTING

greatest gift I’ve ever received.” “A friend of ours, Sandra Crowder, had commissioned a tuba concerto with the Seattle Symphony in memory of her late husband,” Charles said. “I was intrigued by the idea and decided I’d see if I could commission a play for my wife. She was on the board for the ACT Theatre group so I arranged a meeting with them. They liked the idea and agreed to do it. Steven Dietz was chosen to write the play, and I remember telling him that I didn’t want the play to be ‘dark.’ I challenged him to write a comedy.” Charles might have started something when he commissioned the play. “There are 14 similar projects now underway like this that we are aware of,” he said with a smile. “It’s all very exciting.” The play was finished last year and opened in Seattle recently. As for the Barksdale production, the Staadeckers joined the audience in giving the cast a standing ovation when it was over. “Very good. I’m pleased with the production,” Benita said afterwards. “It was worth the trip from Seattle.” Mechanicsville - $227,950. Custom

(SFVA Inc.) “It serves as a learning facility for this forward-thinking, energy efficient building developed by Dominion, James River Air Conditioning and other business partners. Also, it provides a focal point for students to learn not only during The State Fair of Virginia but year-round as they visit adjacent wetlands, biofiltration basins and a host of other leading-edge conservation initiatives.” An existing steel-framed, steel-sided building on the grounds of The Meadow Event Park was refurbished, retrofitted and transformed into the Dominion Conservation Classroom with many features, including: m Classroom seating for up to 50 students, with tables, blackboards/whiteboards and an LED television to help students record and analyze their observations. m An outside array of 12 solar panels with a solar capacity of 3.0 KWH that will collect solar energy and convert it to electricity to power the Dominion Conservation Classroom and also to reduce electricity that needs to be purchased by SFVA, Inc. m The classroom is heated and cooled, in part, by the natural temperature of the earth through geothermal pipes and a high-efficiency geothermal heat pump. m Interior lighting is provided by LED lighting, which results in lower energy consumption and greater durability. m The most advanced foam insulation system contributes to lower electricity usage for

James River Air Conditioning Company Inc., provided project design and management. Equipment and services for the classroom were donated by Creative Conservation Inc., Harris Electric Co. of Virginia Inc., James River Air Conditioning, Rappahannock Electric Cooperative, Virginia Carolina Buildings, and Virginia Energy Services Inc. “The Dominion Conservation Classroom represents an innovative community collaboration that supports our company’s commitment to education and the environment,” said Mary C. Doswell, senior vice president, alternative energy solutions-Dominion. “Teachers throughout Central Virginia can schedule a visit to the classroom for an enriching field trip to learn more about best practices in solar energy conversion and conserving natural resources. Also, the classroom can be used by scout groups for merit badge requirements, service club meetings and other small-group functions.” Hugh Joyce, president of James River Air Conditioning Company, added, “We were honored to help develop the Dominion Conservation Classroom, which showcases the ultimate in green, sustainable living. Most importantly, the classroom provides a stimulating setting to engage students and teach them how to apply math and science skills in the real world, so they can better manage energy in the future. That’s what makes learning so much fun!” SFVA Inc. is developing procedures to reach out to teachers about scheduling visits to the Dominion Conservation Classroom.

Stanley Family INTERNET Reunion to be taxes. “We can’t assume a huge held on Saturday debt in order to do that.” Continued from pg. 7b

The eighth annual Central Virginia Stanley Family Reunion will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 15, at the Mt. Olivet Baptist Church at 15583 Coatesville Road in Beaverdam. All persons of Stanley descent and friends are welcome to join in on a day of fun, food, music and family stories. Those planning to attend are asked to bring a dish to share and family pictures, posters and documents. For more information, call or e-mail Mary Ellen (Stanley) Cauthorn at 798-8926 or mecnashland@aol.com. Information about the reunion and the National Stanley Family Association (NSFA) is on the website, www. stanleyfamily.org. The NSFA continues to document and publish Stanley history and genealogy.

To lay lines throughout the county would cost an estimated $30 million, $30,000 a mile. Major providers Verizon, Comcast and CenturyLink have said it is not cost-effective to run lines in the rural areas that do not have population density. Committee member Jim Ellis from the Chickahominy District, said he had expected a different conversation from Montpelier, but the Mechanicsville session provided pretty much the same. The committee has been gathering input from neighboring King William and Caroline

counties on Internet service. Some audience members said they had no choice in a provider, and, due to the lack of competition, “it is ridiculously expensive or unreliable.” Many operate their businesses from their homes. Steve Ellis said the committee has been “bouncing around ideas. Could this work? We’re trying to find a way to make it cost-effective for the vendors.” He said the county’s goal is to “find a way to do this that’s going to benefit the most people.” As the committee looks to its December presentation, Steve Ellis said they would probably recommend hiring a staff person to coordinate Internet issues. That position currently does not exist.

In addition to Steve Ellis and Jim Ellis, committee members and their districts are: Margie Smith and Ken Russell, Ashland; Caroline Cooke, Beaverdam; Angela KellyWiecek, Chickahom-iny; Jacob Eshler and Russell Minich, Cold Harbor; Gordon Silver, Henry. Mark Creery and Randy Armbrecht, Mechanics-ville; Owen Adams and Amy Mendelson-Cheeley, South Anna; and Joe Casey, staff support. Supervisors John Gordon and Aubrey Stanley serve as chair and vice chair. (Editor’s note: The public meetings were hosted by the High Speed Internet Committee. In previous articles, the Hanover Association of Businesses and Chamber of Commerce had been credited with co-hosting.)

Students of the School of Dance Arts in Mechanicsville will experience the “magic” of Broadway and Wicked on Saturday, Oct. 15. They will take part in educational Broadway Jazz Master Classes taught by Broadway Connection teachers and cast members of the Broadway tour, Wicked. The school offered classes in April 2010 when Wicked was last in town. Valerie Simpson, owner of School of Dance Arts, said is excited about the special opportunity that Broadway Connection is offering to her students.

Broadway Connection Master Classes give students a cost-effective way to connect with working Broadway professionals and offer a behindthe-scenes look at the real world of Broadway. Students learn about auditions, training and how to go after their goals. Broadway Connection teachers share the different aspects of putting a Broadway show together with the hopes of inspiring a lifetime love of theatre. For more information, and to register for the Broadway Jazz Master Classes at School of Dance Arts, call 559-6786.

the way it is.” Winans received certification through a county supervisors’ program. She said she has been working with the Village of Mechanicsville “to try to keep the village area viable.” She also said she is active in the

business community “and I’m happy to say during my term I was able to get a small grant that will help that area to continue to grow and prosper.” While on the board, she said the budget was cut for the first time in the county’s history. “While doing that, we sustained no layoffs in county employees.” She said Hanover has been recognized as 100 of the Best Communities for Young People. “Hanover works well under pressure. It’s so important to continue to elect leaders who represent values that we know are crucial for leading our community in the right direction for planning, growth and development.” She said work is underway “on a little tweak to our 911 system,” noting Henrico County has proposed that “each locality have a sister locality somewhere else in the state so that when the call system has an overload those calls can be automatically switched to another locality.” “I intend to keep our county moving forward.” W. Canova Peterson IV, a Republican, studied architecture at Virginia Tech and then joined the U.S. Army as an officer. He said he spent his first year in the Army train-

ing people to go to Vietnam. His second year was spent in Vietnam with the soldiers he helped train. He was part of the 10th Cavalry. He said he has “a lot of pride being assigned to that unit.” He fought along the Cambodian border and was promoted to first lieutenant. He received the Bronze Star for his service. Peterson came to Richmond in 1970 looking for employment. Finding no success, he then went to Newark, Del. In 1979, he opened his own business in Mechanicsville. “I have been very involved in the community,” he said. His activities include the Mechanicsville Rotary Club, the Community Advisory Board at Memorial Regional Medical Center and the choir and parish council at the Church of the Redeemer. He also is involved with the American Institute of Architects and Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW). “I understand the importance of supporting all of our first responders, teachers, firemen, law enforcement and making sure they are reimbursed for their services and have the equipment with the highest quality standards available.” He said he is “determined that this will be done in a fiscally

responsible manner.” Peterson said he has a “strong background in business. I know the importance of positive economic development.” With unemployment “hovering about 7 percent,” he said, “we need jobs. It’s important that this county support and actively assist, grow and prosper. Hanover is open for business -- we’ve all heard that. We’re not as open to business as a lot of people would like to think.” Peterson said he had heard that “from a lot of members of this organization.” He also said “Hanover County needs to be very conscious of being very supportive of our local businesses,” by providing “stepping stones, not stumbling blocks.” Candidates for the Board of Supervisors in the South Anna and Beaverdam districts will be featured in a similar forum from 7 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 18, at The Montpelier Center for Arts & Education at 17205 Mountain Road in Montpelier. HABCC executive director Jennifer Y. Scott said plans are being made for an Ashland forum. The Oct. 4 breakfast meeting was sponsored by Village Bank.

No. 7 Atlee downs No. 2 Hanover 24-14

By Dave Lawrence For The Mechanicsville Local Atlee was determined to win Friday night. Despite four fumbles in the first quarter – three of them lost to visiting Hanover – the Raiders never wavered in their relentlessly attacking offense. That persistence paid off in a gutsy 24-14 upset win over the No. 2-ranked Hawks. The game was in doubt until the final two minutes, when the Raiders took advantage of a Hanover fumble deep in Hawk territory. Joseph Pulisic kicked a 33-yard field goal to quell any chance of a Hanover comeback. Brian Ratchford recovered the fumble in a desperate

Hawks fail to take advanage of turnovers By JP Beauchamp For The Mechanicsville Local

October 12, 2011

The Hanover football team has build a foundation of dominating play in the county over the past several years. But on Friday night they met their match, traveling to Atlee to face a hungry Raiders squad looking to return to glory. In one of the county’s most exciting football games ever played, Atlee Stadium rocked with a capacity crowd and big plays throughout before the Raiders came away with a 2414 win.

Both teams demonstrated poise and resilience; yet poorlytimed mistakes by Hanover and the inability to convert on Atlee turnovers led to the Hawks’ undoing. “It was a hard-fought game,” said Hanover head coach Joshua Just. “It’s one of these things. We made too many mistakes at opportune times. There were some coach’s calls I wish I could have back. I think I put our kids in bad positions a couple of times. We need to work on that so I can put them in the best position to win.” Hanover, known for being a

physical team, found they faced a mirror performance by Atlee. “(The Raiders) were pretty physical too,” Just said. “I thought the (Hanover) kids played hard. That wasn’t the issue at all. I’m proud of their efforts. But we got outcoached and outplayed. Effort was there on both sides. They executed more than we did. They win the game. My hat’s off to them. It’s a huge win for their program.” Though scoreless, the first quarter provided plenty of intensity and excitement with five turnovers, four by the Raiders, one by Hanover. But it was a

sign of things to come when the Hawks recovery of an Atlee fumble was overturned by a roughing the passer penalty. From the opening kickoff, the Atlee defense quickly asserted itself driving the Hawks backwards from first and 10 on the 25 for a three and out punt on 4th and 19 from their 6-yard line. But Hanover’s hard-hitting special teams forced the first Atlee turnover on the punt return, allowing them to keep driving downfield from the 50. see HANOVER, pg. 38 `


Tigers’ offense rolls to homecoming win 24-14 Vance and Rohle lead win over Bridgewater By Nathan Madden Media General News Services HAMPDEN-SYDNEY — Heads-up play on defense and consistent offensive pressure produced a 28-14 HampdenSydney victory over Bridgewater College at Everett Stadium on Saturday. Senior wide receiver Kyle Vance (three receptions, 96 yards) hauled in a 51-yard scoring pass, and senior running back Kirk Rohle (16 carries, 134 yards) scored the opening and closing touchdowns. “He’s an animal,” freshman safety John Moore said of Rohle, a senior from Hanover High School. “Our offensive line is great, too. They open up big holes for him.” “The offense made me look

Former Hanover standouts Ben Rogers, above, and Kirk Rohle (9), right, had the Hampden-Sydney offense rolling in Saturday’s 28-14 homecoming win over Bridgewater. Rohle reeled off 134 yards on 16 carries and scored twice in the ODAC win.

like a superstar today,” Rohle said. “They did a great job and I’m really proud of them.” Quarterback Travis Lane (Mills Godwin) finished 22 of 32 for 215 yards and two TDs for H-SC. Center Ben Rogers, a senior

who was Rohle’s high school teammate, directed credit to the defense. “It’s a lot easier to play offense when you’ve got a good defense,” he said. “They always step up in big situations when the game is on the line.”

Moore, a former standout at Blessed Sacrament Huguenot, was one such defender who came up big on Saturday for Hampden-Sydney (5-1, 20 Old Dominion Athletic

Conference). The Tigers led 14-7 when the third quarter expired, but Bridgewater (3-2, 0-1) was in the midst of a six-play, 25-yard drive that included a 16-yard

reception by Cord Keating. On the second play of the fourth quarter, Moore picked off Bridgewater’s Carlos Gonzalez as he scrambled. see TIGERS, pg. 40 `

Fryman sizzling on defense for Hampden-Sydney Former Hawk leading H-SC defense By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com The Hampden-Sydney football team entered this season at a serious disadvantage when it came to experience on defense. Therefore to solidify the Tigers’ ability to stop opposing offenses, Head Coach Marty Favret looked to a pair of former Hanover High School players to step up their play. Charlie Leffler/The Local

At left: Hanover product Kenny Fryman (33) has become a dominating force for the H-SC defense. Six games into the season, the junior linebacker leads the Tigers in tackles.

Juniors Kenny Fryman and Steven Fogleman accepted that responsibility, excelling at linebacker and safety which allowed H-SC run off to a 5-1 start and outscore their opponents 239105 through six games. Fogleman was a dominant force in the Tigers’ secondary, recording 18 tackles, an interception and three pass breakups through the first four games before suffering a season ending knee injury at Huntingdon College on September 24. With the loss of Fogleman the full weight of defensive leadership fell to Fryman. “We lost our starting safety Steven Fogleman, he’s the heartbeat of our team and that was a big blow,” Fryman said. “I knew I had to step up and lead the guys and I’m really excited about

what we’re doing right now.” There is no question that Fryman has filled the role with gusto. Through six games, he leads the Tigers’ defense with 53 tackles and 6.5 tackles for a loss. From physical appearance, few would expect Fryman to be a defensive leader. At 5-10, Fryman gives up several inches to virtually every player he’s matched up against. But he attributes his success to preparation, specifically the guidance provided by 13-year NFL veteran Glen Young. As the Tigers’ linebacker coach, Young has passed along to Fryman skills he learned while playing with the Raiders, Chargers and Seahawks. “The coaches do a great see FRYMAN, pg. 40 `

“I just yanked it out,” Ratchford said. “When I realized I had it I was trying to get up and everybody was holding me down. Someone was trying to take it from me. I was just pulling as hard as I could to keep it. I was pumped up that we had the ball.” Ratchford wasn’t the only one. The Atlee stands were rocking like an earthquake hit the field when Raiders’ fans realized what happened. Few expected the No. 7ranked Raiders to defeat the Hawks. “Words can’t explain how big of a victory this was,” said Atlee quarterback Ruben Rucker, who completed 15 passes in 26 attempts for 185 yards and who

However, the Raiders’ defense went to work again and did not allow chain movement, forcing another punt that had Atlee starting from their own 20. “They did a good job rebounding defensively,” Just said. “Seems like every time we got a turnover, they came out and made some plays, and put it right back to us.” Atlee moved down field 31 yards before turning the ball over again, this time on a fumble after a caught pass by senior wide receiver Will McCombs. Starting from Atlee’s 40 Hanover was finally able to move the chains and get in the red zone. But Atlee senior defensive back Austin Sutherland ruined the scoring attempt with an end zone interception of a Sam Rogers pass. Rogers, who was 2-of-9 for 13 yards passing and had 28 carries for 113 yards was visibly unhappy with the game’s results. “We didn’t execute,” he said. “Things weren’t working right.” But the Hawks defense

chipped in one touchdown rushing. “Nobody believed we were going to win. All the newspapers, magazines, TV, Web sites, whatever, they all predicted us to lose. But we came out on top – thank God.” Rucker expected a hardfought game, but never doubted the Raiders (5-0, 2-0 Capital) would win. “I knew we were going to struggle. I knew they were going to punch us in the mouth,” Rucker said. “But I knew my team. Our mental toughness is crazy – it’s crazy. We don’t give up at any point in the game. I knew we were going to come out on top in this game.” When Roscoe Johnson took over as head coach at Atlee, he emphasized mental and physical toughness. The victory over Hanover proves the emphasis

has paid off, at least in terms of maturity. “This is a totally different ball club than I’ve had in the past,” Johnson said. “This group doesn’t give up. This group, their intensity is never too high and never low. It’s right there in the middle. This group does a great job of weathering the storm. I’m just proud of them.” Hanover (4-1, 1-1) is regarded as one of the area’s most physical teams, and that physicality played a role in some of the Raiders’ early turnovers. “We made some mistakes, and that’s because they are a great ball club,” Johnson said. “We knew they were physical, especially up front. Defensively they fly to the ball and they will hit you. … Two good teams came out ready to play, and we were blessed and fortunate

enough to get the win.” Despite all the turnovers, neither team scored in the first quarter. Atlee began its first scoring drive late in the second quarter on the Hanover 48. After losing a couple of yards, Rucker connected with Will McCombs for a 38-yard advance to the 12yard line. Three plays later, Jarred Hall scored on a 2-yard run. Hanover responded immediately with a 15-play, 70-yard drive to tie the game on a 5-yard run by Hawks quarterback Sam Rogers with 55.6 seconds left in the half. After the ensuing kickoff, the Raiders only took 35 seconds to go ahead again on a 1-yard run by Rucker. At the beginning of the second half, the Hawks scored on a 96-yard run by L.J. Jones, but the Raiders were far from demoralized.

“They knew it was OK,” Johnson said. “They knew that our offense would score.” Atlee wasted no time doing so. The Raiders marched 56 yards in nine plays, scoring on a 4-yard run by Hall with 7:39 left in the third quarter. That left plenty of time for Hanover’s offense to come back, but the Raiders’ defense repeatedly found a way to stop the Hawks. “Defensively we’re not going to get down,” Johnson said. “That’s the huge difference in this ball club this year. Offensively, we can score. Defensively, we can hold some teams.” Nevertheless, Hanover refused to roll over, but when Pulisic kicked a 33-yard field goal with little more than two minutes left, the Hawks’ chances dimmed considerably.

stepped up again. The Raiders drove to Hanover’s 9-yard line before Hawks’ linebacker David Crytser recovered a fumble on the 13. Once again the Hanover offense was ineffective. However the defense made their mark when linebacker Rashard Thornton intercepted a Ruben Rucker pass in the end zone to kill another Atlee drive. The Raiders finally got on the board five minutes into the second quarter. Rogers retaliated with a sustained drive from the Hawks’ 41-yard line. Carrying the ball himself on 13 of 15 plays, Rogers punched his way in from third and inches to even up the game. Matt Palmen’s PAT was good for a 7-7 tie with :55 seconds left in the half. But Atlee’s Rucker needed only 43 seconds to launch a 70-yard drive that ended in a keeper from the 1-yard for a touchdown, giving the Raiders a 14-7 lead heading into the locker room. Coming out in the third, Hanover forced Atlee to a three and out but punter Joseph Pulisic pinned them deep in

their own territory. Pulisic proved to be the Raider that Hanover had no answer for. The senior kicker/ punter was the game’s unsung hero repeatedly backing up the Hawks to start four times within their 10 and twice within their 4-yard line. Starting on their own 4yard line, Hanover’s Lawrence Jones went to work. On the first offensive play of the second half, Jones, who finished the night with 16 carries for 160 yards, dashed 96-yards for a score that knotted the game 14-14. But ten plays later Atlee responded on a 4-yard carry by Jarred Hall. Hawks linebacker Austin Hartness wrapped up Hall’s legs at the two causing him to dive with the ball outstretched allowing DB Xavier Crocker to punch the ball loose, but not before it crossed the goal line to give Atlee a 21-14 lead. Pulisic tacked on a 33-yard field goal in the final minutes following a Hanover fumble that proved to be the coup-degras that took the game out of reach for the Hawks. With just over two minutes remaining, Rogers tried to make

up the difference with a long throw downfield, but Sutherland was there to intercept it. With 1:43 remaining on the clock, the Hawks watched helplessly as Rucker took a knee three times to run out the clock. Just accepted responsibility for Hanover’s performance while complimenting Atlee. “I thought their coach did a good job putting them in position; they did a great job making plays. I felt like, personally, I got outcoached tonight.

“I thought we game-planned them very well,” he said. “I thought the biggest thing they did is they came in and made plays. So, I thought the game plan was good going in. But there are some things we could have called at certain times. I know defensively I could do some different things. I gambled a couple of times and got burnt. That’s on me.” Hanover looks to bounce back this Friday night when they host Henrico.

Tigers impressed by Atlee-Hanover Atlee’s 24-14 win over Hanover not only resounded throughout the Richmond area but created waves 75 miles away at Hampden-Sydney. The Tigers’ roster boasts the most substantial group of Hanover County players in college football so for former Raiders Josh Doggett, Micahel Bazemore, Kamron White, Tyler White and John Michael Sparagna it was a likewise a moment of celebration. “Oh, I’ve been rubbing it in all morning and they’ve been hating it every second of it,” Sparagna said. “I didn’t go to the game but I heard everything

about it and that was awesome. Good for Atlee.” After seeing their Hawks five year winning streak over Atlee come to a close, the Hanover contingent of Steven Fogleman, Ben Rogers, Kirk Rohle, Shreve Rohle and Kenny Fryman took the loss in stride. Fryman watched the game from the stands at Atlee and was impressed by the play of both teams despite the loss by his Hawks. “It was an awesome game. It was an awesome game,” he said. “That’s the first time in five years that Atlee beat Hanover so hats off to Atlee.” Charlie Leffler

Hanover’s chances fell to zero with 1:41 left when Atlee defensive back Austin Sutherland intercepted Rogers for the second time that night.

No down time for RIR’s Dennis Bickmeier New RIR president keeping busy heading into off season By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com A month has passed since new Richmond International Raceway President Dennis Bickmeier experienced his first NASCAR weekend at RIR, but there has been little slowing down since. Even though the Wonderful Pistachios 400 marked the final race of RIR’s 2011 season, Bickmeier has kept busy getting to know the community and ramping up plans for next year. So much so that he has rarely seen the inside his office at the track. “I’ve been to a lot of luncheons, a lot of breakfasts, a lot of evening functions,” Bickmeier said. “I’ve not been in the office a lot.” Bickmeier has utilized the meal functions as a means to further introduce himself to the

Seated at his desk is one of the rare places that new RIR president Dennis Bickmeier has found himself since taking over at the track. Though this season’s races are over in Richmond, Bickmeier’s schedule has not slowed as he plans for the 2012 season.

Richmond community while providing as a sounding board for improvements at RIR. “Being able to talk to people who have been around for a

long time and been to the racetrack and hear their stories has been a huge benefit for me,” he said. Since being named presi-

dent of RIR in mid-July, Bickmeier’s world has been a whirlwind of events. His first month was spent going back and forth between Richmond

and Michigan to coordinate races at two different tracks simultaneously. Immediately following the Michigan race, Bickmeier packed up his family for the move to Richmond just in time to get his kids started in school, which happened to be race week at RIR. “We’ve been running,” he said. So much so that other than his children’s possessions, little has been unpacked. Ironically, now that race weekend has passed Bickmeier’s real work begins. “October and the first part of November are really key for us on what we’re going to do, who we’re going to be going forth,” he said. Under the continued economic slide selling tickets has not gotten any easier. “We’ve got to find some new ways to change some things we’ve never tried before,” he said. “What those things are I don’t know.” But Bickmeier has been formulating a few ideas derived

from visits to the parking lots and camping areas during race week. “I spent some time out in Lot D on Saturday,” he said. “I think the staff thought I was crazy heading out there. Boy, what an atmosphere out there. It had a real college football feel to it. I thought it was interesting to see. “The tailgating is something that I’ve never seen to that extent,” Bickmeier said. “When you talk about people’s race day traditions, a lot of people I talked to, especially out in Lot D, that’s their tradition.” Because tailgaters arrive early in the day, Bickmeier wants to come up with ideas to give them more to do. “Our midway experience is something we’re looking very closely at,” he said. “How do we redefine that area out there, add some more attractions and make it more enjoyable for the fans? “There’s not a lot of flow to see BICKMEIER, pg. 40 `

R-MC’s Naccarato blisters Catholic 51-34 Contributed report

Washington, DC – Randolph-Macon freshman quarterback Zac Naccarato threw for a career-high 372 yards and four touchdowns as the Yellow Jackets knocked off Catholic 51-34 in the Nation’s Capital on Friday evening. R-MC is now 5-1 overall and 1-1 in the ODAC, while CUA drops to 3-2 and 0-2 in the league. Naccarato finished the day 25-of-31 passing and earned ODAC Player of the Week honors. Christian Cook was able to grab 12 balls for 205 yards on the night. Vance Hendren ran for two touchdowns and caught eight passes for 111 yards and a score as well for R-MC. In the first half of play, the

teams combined for 51 points and 545 yards of offense and saw R-MC hold a 30-21 lead after the first 30 minutes. Naccarato completed 11of-13 passes for 201 yards and three scores. Seven of those passes went to Cook for 160 yards and two scores. The second of which, a 66-yard hook up with 1:49 to go in the half. R-MC took the opening kickoff of the second half and promptly drove 64 yards on 11 plays in 5:46, extending its advantage to 37-21 on a four yard plunge by Hendren. It took CUA just over two minutes and seven plays to respond on its next possession, the final nine yards coming on a Jason Howard TD catch. The point after missed, making it 37-27 with 6:41 to go in the

third quarter. Randolph-Macon moved into Cardinal territory on its next possession only to see its field goal attempt fail. CUA got the ball back and four plays later got a 58-yard pass from Greg Cordivari to Alonzo Cooke to pull within three at 37-34. A key play in the game occurred on R-MC’s next possession after punter Josh Storm was forced to track down a bad snap that had rolled inside the Jackets 30 yard line. Before CUA could gain possession, Storm calmly collected the ball and was able to get a punt off that put CUA inside its own 20. The change of field position proved key when R-MC held the Cardinals, forced a punt and turned around, scoring on a Naccarato to Cook pass from

six yards out. The Yellow Jackets defense came up big when Catholic got the ball back, forcing a three and out to give the R-MC offense another chance to score. Nacarrato and company needed just five plays to go 45 yards as Hendren again scored from one yard out on third down and goal, making it 51-34 with just over eight minutes to play in the game. The R-MC defense was led by Brandon Harrison who had nine tackles, while Abel Simpson, Chris Pace and Matt Daugherty each have five stops. Randolph-Macon will be back in action this Saturday when it hosts defending ODAC Champion Washington & Lee. Kickoff is slated for 1 p.m. and is part of R-MC’s

“I locked on and the ball came right in my direction,” said Moore of the interception he returned 10 yards. “I think that definitely helped our momentum.” That it did. Moore’s pick led to a four-play, 45-yard H-SC drive that ended with a 3-yard TD run by Eric Gorsline. “We love Johnny Moore,” said Tigers’ head coach Marty Favret. “He’s a freshman, but he plays a lot older than that and he’s got great ball skills.” Another of the defense’s pivotal stands occurred late in the first half. With 2:21 left in the half, the Eagles were working a six-play, 68-yard march to the H-SC 12, but the drive died on a fumble in the end zone. On the seventh snap of the

job of telling us where to go,” Fryman said. “My coach played in the NFL, I just do what he tells me to do and he puts me in the right spots and I’m able to make the plays I need to make.” Nowhere was Fryman’s ‘doanything-for-the-win’ mentality more evident on Saturday than during a late third quarter drive by Bridgewater. While stopping Eagles’ running back Darren McKenzie on second down at the H-SC 9-yard line Fryman lost his right shoe. The Eagles were looking to tie the game with a third and four play leaving Fryman scrambling to get his shoe back on. He could not do so before the next play was run, which fortunately ended in an incomplete pass. Bridgewater hurried to the line to run a fourth down play and Fryman still did not have his shoe fully on. Likewise, he did not want to leave the field because he felt it was his responsibility to lead the defense and prevent a score

drive, Bridgewater’s Gonzalez (21 of 38 for 205 yards) hooked up with Cliff Woodard for 11 yards, but Tigers sophomore safety Charlie Shoemaker forced a fumble in the end zone despite the setback. As Fryman reluctantly raced to the sidelines he sighed with relief when Bridgewater called a timeout allowing him to not miss an important defensive play. “I think at linebacker, we always call it the heartbeat of the team because we bring the energy, we bring the hits, we just try to get it lined up right,” Fryman said. “If we do our job the defense usually has a good game.” This Saturday H-SC travels to Emory & Henry for a 1 p.m. ODAC matchup. Another local product having a standout season for the Tigers is junior halfback John Michael Sparagna, better known to teammates at J-Mike. For Sparagna, the key to success has simply been enjoying the moment. “For me, I’m out here having a good time hanging out with my buddies and I love winning,” he said. Through the first two games of the season the Atlee product averaged 12.8 yards per catch and 57.6 receiving yards per

in either area. Feedback is very important to Bickmeier and he has made himself open to any fan who wants to pass along suggestions. They can email him directly at president@rir.com or info@rir. com. “(It’s) just a great way for me to interact with the fans,” he said. Race weekend also provided an opportunity for Bickmeier to show off RIR to his International Speedway Corporation bosses. “We spent a good two and half, three hours on Friday walking the facility,” he said. “I think that was good for all of us to do that. No golf carts; we walked it. We walked from here (office), through the midway and around the track and we needed to do that. I think that was very positive.” Though it was expected, Bickmeier breathed a sigh of relief last week when NASCAR announced RIR will retain its two race weekends for the 2012 season. “Those are year-to-year contracts, you never know,” he said. “That’s why I think we need to continue to put on a good show for the fans, take their feedback and use it.”

Correction

Last week’s article on the Captial District Golf Tournament incorrectly identified the photograph of a LeeDavis golfer as Zac Lewis. Lewis, pictured above, led the Confederates to the district title.
