Public reviews school budget plan By Jim Ridolphi for The Mechanicsville Local

OWEN MATTHEWS

Citizens had their first chance to comment on Hanover County Public Schools’ 2015 budget last week, and more than a dozen took the opportunity to express their views on the proposed document.

Afreen Gootee, president of the Hanover Education Association, said the proposed 2 percent increase for all teachers is not enough. “While we support these efforts, we would like to encourage you to consider increasing the salary percentage to 6 percent which was my

original recommendation in December,” Gootee said. She based that request on the fact that Hanover teachers have not had a raise in five years, and the Virginia General Assembly is proposing a 6 percent increase for state-funded teachers. Angela Downer, presi-

dent of Hanover Professional Educators (HPE), expressed her support of the county’s effort to maintain current benefits level, but also endorsed an increased percentage in the compensation package. She spoke in favor of supplying computer devices to all see BUDGET, pg.14

Carole Umbel accepts the Virginia, Maryland and Delaware Association of Electric Cooperatives Good Samaritan Award in recognition of her years of service to several western Hanover County philanthropic organizations. Shown are, from left, Kent D. Farmer, president & CEO of Rappahannock Electric Cooperative; Ron Umbel, Carole’s husband; Carole Umbel; and David Koogler, vice president of Customer Services for Rappahannock Electric Cooperative. Koogler is a longtime friend and neighbor of the Umbels and joined in nominating her for the award.

February 5, 2014

Carole Umbel, a Rappahannock Electric Cooperative (REC) member from Hanover, is the recipient of the Good Samaritan Award, presented by the Virginia, Maryland & Delaware Association of Electric Cooperatives (VMDAEC). The Good Samaritan Award was developed to honor individuals whose body of good work has been so selfless and life-changing to others that it is held up as a “gold standard” of philanthropic community service. Umbel, who has been battling lung cancer for several months,accepted her award on Monday, Jan. 27, at a luncheon held at the Omni Hotel in Richmond. For more than 20 years, Umbel has led the Western Hanover Emergency Action Team (WHEAT), which provides emotional, spiri-

An article about the legislative agenda of the Hanover County Board of Supervisors that appeared in our Wednesday, Jan. 29, 2014 edition incorrectly quoted Hanover County Attorney Sterling Rives as saying Virginia’s tourism industry is dependent on a work force available through Labor Day weekend. “That is not correct, although that is an argument that the proponents of changing current law often use and that is where you might have heard it,” Rives told The Local. He said, “I did say that the tourism industry in Virginia benefits greatly from families being able to take the traditional end of summer vacation over Labor Day Weekend. It is an important distinction. In fact, as I understand it, by end of summer King’s Dominions work force is made up primarily of college students and other part-time and full-time employees, but not high school students.” We apologize for the error.

In honoring Umbel with the Good Samaritan Award, Larry Howdyshell, chairman of the VMDAEC Awards Committee, praised her for being “a true role model of a wonderful citizen and protector of those less fortunate.”

Morgan at 804-762-4800 or by email at tmorgan@genesismgmt.net. About Hanover Heritage Alliance The Hanover Heritage Alliance evolved from a meeting in June 2012 when a diverse group concerned about the legacy of slavery and segregation got together to discuss ways to uncover and honor neglected pieces of our region’s diverse history and culture. The Alliance’s goals include facilitation of interracial dialogue and multicultural conversations, promotion of awareness that stories of ordinary people are important, and preservation of records and objects reflecting our region’s rich past. The Alliance seeks to promote our area’s importance to the collective story of Virginia and American history.

Joining Koogler and Howdyshell in honoring Umbel were fellow REC members and close friends Rev. Claudia Stallings and Ericka “Rickie” Smith, who each described Umbel’s far-reaching service. “Over the past year, WHEAT has served from 80 to 100 families each month, providing food assistance to more than 300 local residents,” Smith said. “Carole’s ongoing efforts to secure funding and grants to assist neighbors with emergency financial needs have made Western Hanover County a more caring place to live and raise a family.” Jackson E. Reasor Jr., president and CEO of VMDAEC and Old Dominion Electric Cooperative (ODEC), the power supplier to REC and 10 other member-owned cooperatives, said “Carole exemplifies the seventh cooperative principle of ‘concern for community,’ and we are proud to recognize her inspirational leadership that has made such a difference in her rural community.” The Good Samaritan Award was established in 2010 and

nominations are solicited from the members of the 13 electric cooperatives that serve Virginia. Founded in 1944, VMDAEC is the trade association for 15 consumer-owned, not-for-profit electric distribution cooperatives that serve Delaware, Maryland and Virginia. The Glen Allen-based Association provides its member cooperatives with employee, director and safety education and training, government relations and legislative support, and communications services, including the publishing of Cooperative Living magazine. For more information, visit www.vmdaec.com, www.gaff-ngo.com or www.co-opliving.com. REC provides electric service to more than 158,000 connections in parts of 22 Virginia counties. With its general office in Fredericksburg, Rappahannock operates and maintains more than 16,000 miles of power lines through its service area, which ranges from the Blue Ridge Mountains to the tidal waters of the Chesapeake Bay.

OPINION | The Local Views

Cold weather in winter? Go figure.

From the editor

Ethics and integrity and no blurred lines Goochland Gazette editor Roslyn Ryan said it very well on this page last week when addressing the scandal plaguing former Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife Maureen. So, this isn’t an attempt to copy her editorial opinion/comment. Rather, the entire sad episode in our state leaves a blemish Virginians are not accustomed to confronting. That being said, as a native of West Virginia, questioning actions by elected officials is nothing new. Political corruption is a term used too often there. So, now we’re under the microscope of the national media as the McDonnells prepare for their day in court. Keep in mind, they’re heading to the big court. A federal indictment is one that packs a huge punch and the government has the resources to pursue a conviction. And, having dealt with politicians in federal court through the years, conviction is what federal prosecutors aim to obtain. Yes, that’s stating the obvious. But many questions remain about the relationship between the former first couple of Virginia and Jonnie Williams, the former CEO of Star Scientific. Were the McDonnells guilty of any wrongdoing or was it simply a case of accepting gifts from Williams, a man they considered a friend? The reality is that the gifts issue has placed them in a swirl of controversy. Well, the best case scenario, as Ryan so eloquently stated based on advice from her father, was not to accept any gifts. If you don’t take, you don’t owe. It’s that simple. When this writer started in newspapers in 1975, an immediate directive from my managing editor was “You don’t even accept a cup of coffee.” At that time, a cup of coffee cost a whopping 10 cents in my hometown. Adhering to that rule has been a given throughout my career. At this point, we’re leaving the judgment to the court system. And, defendants Bob and Maureen McDonnell will get their day in court. Do you think the McDonnells were guilty of a crime in accepting gifts from Williams? Only time will tell as this saga proceeds through the judicial system. Melody Kinser

By Jim Ridolphi for The Mechanicsville Local Back when I used to pedal a Schwinn Paper Boy Special up and down Augusta Avenue delivering a couple of hundred Times-Dispatches, the weather was very important to me. My nightly ritual included checking the weather to gauge the degree of discomfort the next morning would hold in store for me. I remember the bitter cold in my hands as we sat in a small huddle and folded our papers. And who could forget how difficult it is to pedal a bicycle in ice and snow. Once I completed that career, my interest in the weather waned, and it always seemed secondary to other

news of the day or things going on in my life. For years, it went on that way. The winters were cold, the summers hot and lots in between mixed in the middle. So, I’ll admit I was a little perplexed when we started hearing names of winter storms, or clippers, this year. I’ve never questioned the legitimacy of naming hurricanes since they’re associated with a sense of suspense and fear. But naming a low-pressure system that often brings more anticipation than precipitation seems futile. Some more skeptical than I have presented a different theory regarding the increased weather coverage on national news outlets. They say the increased coverage

of extreme weather bolsters a liberal media’s position in support of global warming, and driving home the freak storms or droughts strengthens their case. I’m not convinced of that, and I have no earthly idea why weather is such big news these days. A national cold snap recently took front page priority, and frigid temperatures in the Plains took center stage on national newscasts. My take: It’s winter and no one ever said Wisconsin was spring-like in January. One of the real consequences of winter weather did have a serious impact on my regular routine with the recent inch of snow that struck our neighborhood a couple of weeks ago. see WINTER, pg. 8

TEA Party member questions chairman on ‘sound policy’ The Jan. 15 edition of The Mechanicsville Local contained comments by incoming chairman of the Hanover County Board of Supervisors that Sean Davis perhaps might elaborate on in more detail. He states “Our convictions will be in sound policy, not

politics. We will work to build up not to tear down.” I wondered if Sean Davis was perhaps sending the Mechanicsville TEA Party a subtle message, since we are the only organized opposition who stood up to them last year. What else besides opposing the BOS actions could he be referring to? If you disagree with a particular policy or action by the board are you “tearing down,” according to his definition?

ment would rather keep in quiet confidence. It is a tactic they resort to when they can’t defend a policy or a position they take on the merits; they resort to this type of language in an effort to subtly disparage or silence opponents. Interesting that in his proclamations on his priorities [there is] not a mention of cutting spending, something that was a higher priority for candidate Davis than it apparently is for chairman Davis. Instead, he spoke of raises for county employees and a continued “commitment to Hanover County schools,” code language for supporting a bigger school budget. Mr. Davis should study recent economic data before he introduces his laundry list of promises. He might note the people who will pay for

“Ridiculous,” she said. “You people down here don’t know what real snow really is.” She’s probably right. But, we do know that melting ice in single-digit temperatures is probably just as hard north of the Mason-Dixon Line as it is here, and our kids are better safe and sound in our warm homes than slipping and sliding at school. And we’re almost sure that sledding and hot chocolate sure beats the heck out of reading and writing. But, not palm trees.

and division staff for meeting the School Board’s budget goals and we would like to commend Dr. Jamelle Wilson and the division staff for, once again, doing the best that can be done with the funds available — for reinstating 18 teaching positions (which is almost 10 percent of the 200 that we’ve constricted during the recent lean years), for the 2 percent salary increase, for covering the pension and health benefit costs, and for the additional funds for instructional materials. We do, however, have three areas of concern: the five-year capital improvements plan, technology and high school scheduling alignment. 1. First, in looking at past year’s plans, we have noticed that the Fiscal Year 2014-2019 Long Range Capital Improvement plan reflects a $55 million cut over the same plan from FY We’d like to commend the 2013-2018. All renovation plans Hanover County School Board have been eliminated in favor of

a maintenance program costing an average of $3.5 million a year. With many school buildings more than 50 years old, this does not seem sufficient to meet the expected needs. With the formula of “average renovation and updating of school buildings is once every 30 years” in mind, Assistant Superintendent of Business & Operations David Myers has estimated the need for $180 million over the next 10 years. We urge this board to communicate these needs to the Hanover County Board of Supervisors which has recently approved $44 million to replace a courthouse that is only 40 years in age. A new courthouse is needed and we don’t argue this. However, our school buildings are in great need as well. 2. Second, we’re glad to see that the amount budgeted for technology has tripled. However, $1 million is less $56

his promises have seen income declines of around $4,000 a year. Or he might look at the number of private sector employees who have taken deep pay cuts just to keep their jobs, who’ve not had a raise for five or more years, the number who have lost their employer’s matching contributions for their 401(k) plans, the number of people in the private sector who have not been able to even find a job. Considerations such as these, Mr. Davis, would be “sound policy.” Your statements are more reflective of typical politicians. Just remember who is paying for your promises.

Another concern is the 6 x 8 scheduling. “Workloads have become unmanageable,” she said. “The new schedule has pushed lunch to 10:20 a.m. in some schools.” Jacob Davis, a junior at Patrick Henry High School, spoke in favor of increased compensation for Hanover County teachers and said the proposed 2 percent falls short of the mark. Chris Pace, a Hanover County teacher, said the current budget proposal has many positive aspects. He did, however, have concerns over the Capital Budget. see BUDGET, pg. 16

Brown said that may mean they’ll have to hire outside help to write and administer grants and other programs that could come as a result of the federal designation. “I think it’ll mean most to the future generations,” Brown said. “It might be 10 or 15 years before we realize the benefits.” That said, Brown noted that recognition is about far more than access to federal grants and programs. “It’s a matter of historical justice, and not just for us,” Brown said, pointing out the rich American Indian history

But what does federal recognition mean? Brown said that it provides a chance for certain federal grants and assistance, but those don’t come automatically. Federal acknowledgement means the United States government recognizes the Pamunkey tribe’s government as an official entity with which it can do official business, opening up the possibility for grants, loans, emergency assistance and other services and programs. “King William County often seeks grants from the federal government for different projects,” Brown added. “We’d be able to do that, but it doesn’t guarantee anything.” The Pamunkey tribe is

Ashland): We’ve got to start with teachers having a school-issued laptop with school-issued software. If staff are to be preparing 21st century learners for the workplace, then staff need 21st technology to achieve this. Even if the $1 million budgeted were for the 1,800 teaching staff, then that only adds up to about $670 per. This may get each instructor a laptop. However, this $1 million wouldn’t include anything for printers, projectors, software or other “technology.” 3. Our third area of concern is high school schedule alignment: Again, we would like to thank you for reinstating 18 instructional positions — this is almost 10 percent of the 200 lost in the recent years. Thank you also for budgeting the 2 percent pay increase for teachers and covering health and pension costs. The salary increase will help make us competitive with surrounding districts, but we fear that six of eight will make us less competitive. Last winter we heard over and over again, especially at the secondary level where there is more attrition, that workloads had become unmanageable. Almost all Hanover County Public Schools high school teachers instruct six of eight courses and are responsible for student supervision in one-half of a study hall period. Henrico and Chesterfield high school teachers instruct five of seven blocks and Richmond City does six of eight, but the sixth is a resource block. We also understand that the schedule alignment was to have identical schedules at all four high schools; however, this does not seem to have happened. Atlee has a flex block every Wednesday, whereas Hanover and Patrick Henry have flex blocks every day of the week. In addition, the new schedule has pushed the first lunch period at some high schools to begin at 10:20 a.m. and lunch periods

have decreased to 25 minutes from 30 minutes. John Axselle (School Board representative, Beaverdam) noted at the last meeting that income via purchased lunches has decreased. We have to wonder if “brunch” timing, coupled with five fewer minutes, does not encourage students to purchase lunch. We thank Dr. Wilson and the School Board for hearing our concerns and for their hard work on behalf of our schools.

Reducing standards After postponing the public release of their Draft Legislative Agenda for a month, the Hanover County School Board finally released its 2014 Legislative Agenda. After reading this legislative agenda I can see why they were so slow to release it to the public. This agenda supports HB 930 in the current General Assembly session. HB 930 has the full support

of Hanover Del. Chris Peace. HB 930 repeals all remaining No Child Left Behind standards and replaces them with 1965 standards. These 1965 standards were called The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). When ESEA was implemented in 1965 the U.S. was number one in the world in math and science. After implementing ESEA, the U.S. has fallen to number 35. Apparently our School Board wants to go back to 1965 and start over. After going from number one to number 35 in math and science they may very well wish to start over. This legislative agenda is posted on the Hanover County School Board website for all to see. The education (teachers union) lobby is the second most powerful lobby in Virginia. In addition to HB 930, they also want HB 175, HB 365, HB 447, HB 498, HB 548, HB 640, HB 643, HB 850 and HB 1066. What the very powerful education (teachers union) lobby wants they have a very good chance of getting. No Hanover delegate is going to try to stop them. The education (teachers union) lobby uses all of its political power to block any effort to improve academic standards. Rather than support any effort to meet the very modest current SOL standards, they insist on going back to 1965. With the help of our Hanover County General Assembly delegates they can succeed. The education (teachers union) lobby will say they are doing it for the children. There is no reason at all to believe any Hanover County child will benefit in any way if the education (teachers union) lobby succeeds in its efforts to reduce academic standards. Larnie C. Allgood Jr. Vice president Mechanicsville TEA Party Mechanicsville

ported a controversial proposal to expand Medicaid in Virginia. The sign came down shortly after it went up, but the controversy continues, and a new sign now appears on U.S. 360 east near Central Garage in King William County, minus contact infor-

mation for the Mechanicsville Tea Party. Peace’s district includes parts of Hanover and King William counties and all of New Kent County. Peace noted there has been no vote on Medicaid Expansion, and is clear regarding his position. “Unlike Gov. [Terry] McAuliffe, I and my Republican

additional information in order to ensure we are all on the same page on this process,” she said. David Myers, assistant superintendent of Business and Operations, explained that this year’s capital budget features citizen-friendly features that should make it easier for the public to understand. Although this budget does include $8 million in additional revenue, he said the current proposal is “conservative.” He noted that no additional funding is provided in the state’s 2016 budget for education, and said this year’s budget features no one-time funding sources for the first time in years. “We feel like this will take a huge step forward,” Myers said. “Keep in mind we have to look forward to the future,” he added.

He indicated this year’s plan reflects a desire to restore some eliminated items from past years. “Does it do everything we want? No. Does it do everything we want? No but it will get us further down the road to where we need to be,” Myers said. School Board members are expected to consider and approve the proposed document on Feb. 11 and Wilson will present the approved school budget to the Hanover County Board of Supervisors on Feb. 26. The public comment period was extended due to the inclement weather that may have prevented some from attending last week’s meeting. School Board members were to receive comments again at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 4. A public hearing on the county budget is scheduled for March 26.

their own insurance plans if they like their plans and Congress allows. The United States Supreme Court ruling on the Affordable Care and Patient Protection Act (ACA), more commonly known as “ObamaCare,” allowed states the option to enroll 400,000 single adults whose eligibility is based on 133 percent of the

“If you read the budget language from last year (Peace voted for the state budget, along with Hanover Senators [Walter] Stosch and [Ryan] McDougle), it is at least clear to my satisfaction that the ambiguous language gives the Medicaid expansion clear sailing if this Medicaid committee essentially gives the expansion their blessing.” BOB SHANNON Member, Mechanicsville Tea Party

He said he stands by the words painted on the sign, and he makes no apologies regarding the message. “If you read the budget language from last year (Peace voted for the state budget, along with Hanover Senators [Walter]

Stosch and [Ryan] McDougle), it is at least clear to my satisfaction that the ambiguous language gives the Medicaid expansion clear sailing if this Medicaid committee essentially gives the expansion their blessing,” Shannon said. He said Medicaid currently accounts for 21 percent of Virginia’s budget, and contends the taxpayers could be left footing the bill when all is said and done. The federal government’s proposal would result in several billion dollars returned to Virginia, but many lawmakers feel once Washington stops paying, the state could be left with greater expenses and more people on the Medicaid rolls. Peace shares similar concerns with the current system. “Virginia needs serious reforms,” the delegate said. “So we are supporting an see SIGN, pg. 34

Price keeps Patriots beyond reach of Justices By Chip Knighton For The Mechanicsville Local When the going got tough, the Patrick Henry High School’s girls’ basketball team did just enough to get by. Summer Price scored 27 points as the Patriots held off a furious John Marshall High School rally to win 41-38 Friday night in the Justices’ gym. The Campbell Universitybound senior willed Patrick Henry (11-2) across the finish line with nine points late as John Marshall mounted a final charge. Price scored all five of her team’s five points in the last 1:33 and went 7-for-8 from the free-throw line in the fourth quarter as the Patriots matched the Justices (9-7) score for score. “All season, we’ve stressed the importance of free throws coming down the stretch,” Patrick Henry coach Phillip Cobb said. “Summer stepped up tonight and made some big ones for us to pull this one out.” Dajouniek Wingfield and Antwonette Pickett keyed the full-court press that disrupted the Patriots and brought John Marshall to within two points four times in the fourth quarter, including a 38-36 deficit with the ball in the final minute after Pickett tied up Price. “The pressure got us in striking distance,” John Marshall

Dave Lawrence/The Local

Summer Price’s clutch free-throw shooting in the fourth quarter helped Patrick Henry keep a step ahead of host John Marshall in the Patriots’ 41-38 victory Friday. Price finished with 27 points.

coach Travis Richardson said, “and being smart and mature in the second half and not making mistakes.” But the Justices couldn’t get a shot off on the ensuing possession, and Price sank three free throws at the other end to keep the Patriots just ahead in their first live action, practice or game, since Monday. “With the weather that we’ve had, we’ve missed maybe two weeks’ worth of practice and games,” Cobb said. “We

knew we were going to have to knock off some rust, and John Marshall’s a pretty good team. ... We knew it was going to be a fight.” Price said, “It’s hard, but you’ve just got to play the game. Staying focused is part of it.” Price scored the first six points and staked Patrick Henry to a lead that got as high as eight points at 25-17 in the third quarter. John Marshall then went on a 9-3 run to cut the lead to four early in the fourth quarter, with

Jasmine Carter scoring six of her 10 points. “The girls played hard, but at the same time, we keep digging ourself holes,” Richardson said. Wingfield, a sophomore point guard, finished with 14 points to lead the Justices. Naterria Luster added eight points and Pickett had four of her six points in the fourth quarter, as well as a basket in the last minute that was waved off despite a foul that sent her to

the free-throw line. “She played exceptionally well,” Richardson said. “We watched her grow up before our eyes tonight.” Amber Lee had eight points as Cobb leaned on his experienced starters, all seniors who scored all of the team’s points. India Coles (five points) and Ashley Samuels (one point) were the only other Patrick Henry players to get on the scoreboard. Price, Lee, Coles and Rachel Adams are four-year varsity players, and Samuels has been on the varsity for three years. “These girls have played together since middle school,” Cobb said. “They know each other, and they’re used to winning. Winning can be contagious sometimes, and fortunately for us, we’re on that side of it.” That experience helped the Patriots maintain their composure and gut out the win. “We really didn’t play well,” Cobb said, “but we did what we needed to do.” PATRICK HENRY (11-2) — Burch 0, Woody 0, Price 27, Samuels 1, Adams 0, Gordon 0, Lee 8, Coles 5. Totals 13 12-19 41. JOHN MARSHALL (9-7) — Wingfield 14, Luster 8, Robinson 0, Henderson 0, Butler 0, Carter 10, Pickett 6, Banks 0, Lewis 0. Totals 14 9-22 38.

From the sports editor

The Local needs You! Virginia High School League realignment has not been kind to us sportswriters. Conference – and in one case, regional – meets and tournaments are coming up in several winter sports this week: gymnastics, indoor track & field, swimming and wrestling. But with the new conferences/sections/regions/ whatever – some of which span a vast swath of the commonwealth – it is impossible for our one-person staff to get everywhere, even with the help of freelancers. Therefore we ask that all of you affiliated with the affected sports at the schools in our coverage area – Atlee, Hanover, King William, Lee-Davis and Patrick Henry – try to coordinate with us to make sure YOUR team gets see YOU!, pg. 32

Patrick Henry buckles under John Marshall press By Chip Knighton For The Mechanicsville Local John Marshall High School, last year’s Virginia High School League Group AAA runner-up, boasts a boys’ basketball roster loaded with high-level talent. Coach Ty White estimates five of his players could sign with Division I schools. Friday night, Patrick Henry High School countered with Lucas Pienkowski, but the senior center’s 26 points – half his team’s output and more than double any other player on either team – was not enough to stem the Justice’s tide as the balanced Justices cruised to a 69-52 home victory. “They took us out of our game plan a little,” Patrick Henry coach Randy Anderson said. “We knew coming in what we were going to do, and at times we executed the plan. When we didn’t, we fell into their trap.” John Marshall (12-2) opened up a double-digit lead in the first quarter and maintained a comfortable margin for most of the rest of the half. The Justices’ press forced several turnovers to put the offense in good position, with Burton and Jones scoring four points each in the period.

Dave Lawrence/The Local

Patrick Henry’s Lucas Pienkowski (44) scores two of his game-high 26 points in the Patriots’ 6952 loss to host John Marshall Friday.

“This is a great team,” Pienkowski said. “This is a team that presses, but it was nothing we hadn’t seen before. We came out a little bit flat, couldn’t get

it across halfcourt which really hurt us.” Pienkowski battled to keep the game close, scoring his team’s first eight points of the

second quarter, and the Patriots (3-9) went into the half down just eight points. The relatively close margin wouldn’t last. The Justices

Holmes, Yellow Jackets silence Quakers By Jordan Bondurant Richmond Times Dispatch Thisisn’tthesameRandolphMacon College men’s basketball team that lost to Guilford College in November. The Yellow Jackets made 13 3-pointers and led by as many as 45 points en route to a 10358 thrashing of the Quakers on Saturday at Crenshaw Gymnasium. The victory was RandolphMacon’s 11th consecutive, its

32

longest winning streak since the 2011-12 season, and gave the Yellow Jackets sole possession of first place in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference. The win avenged a 73-71 overtime defeat R-MC suffered Nov. 26 against the Quakers. “At the beginning of the year, we weren’t very good defensively,” R-MC coach Nathan Davis said. “But we’ve gotten better. We’re light years ahead of where we were at that time. We played unselfish and with a purpose

The Mechanicsville Local

offensively, and defensively, made it tough for them to get the shots they wanted.” R-MC shot 55.2 percent (37 of 67) from the floor and 65 percent (13 of 20) from past the 3-point arc. Junior Akeem Holmes (King William) recorded his first double-double of the season with 13 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Yellow Jackets. Freshman Jamie Wilson (West Point) helped R-MC jump out to a nine-point lead in

the first half. His back-to-back treys forced Guilford coach Tom Palombo to burn a 30-second timeout with 11:18 to go. Three-point shooting has always been Wilson’s strong suit, and it was on full display as he made four and finished with 14 points. “It’s a routine, and I try to work on it a lot in practice,” Wilson said. “I’ve always been able to shoot from outside, and see SILENCE, pg. 33 "

ripped off a 15-5 run to open the third quarter and had the game all but wrapped up entering the fourth with a 46-30 lead. They led by as many as 21 points in the fourth quarter. “Defensively, we wanted to switch it up a lot,” White said. “Show them different looks, half-court and full-court, keep them off balance.” Despite the ugly final score, Anderson had some positives to point to. One of them came at the end of that decisive third quarter when senior guard Will Burch threw caution to the wind despite an 18-point deficit, sliding across halfcourt to corral a loose ball to maintain a possession that ended with a Pienkowski bucket. “That’s what you look for,” Anderson said. “If we don’t do anything else, that still shows that toughness on the floor. It lets everybody know we’re not going to back down. We might be outmatched a little, but we shouldn’t let that change how we hustle on the floor.” But the Justices’ press kept Patrick Henry at bay, to say nothing of their vaunted depth and balance. Seven John Marshall players scored at least six points and none topped senior Quaman Burton’s 12. Gregory Jones had 11 points and Jeremy Sheppard and Taqqi Muhammad had 10 each, with

Nate Williams (eight points), Kyle Scott (seven) and Jay Broaddus (six) pitching in. “On any night, any one of those guys can have a big night.” White said. “It doesn’t matter who does it as long as it gets done. That’s the mindset.” Anderson added: “Every time we slowed up and we ran our stuff, we got across halfcourt, no problem. From that point on, we executed. But at the end of the day, we had too many turnovers.” “We did a better job of making sure we touched the paint offensively,” White said. “As a result, we had a good offensive flow and continuity.” Burch was one of the few non-Pienkowski bright spots for the Patriots, scoring eight points. James Pinder added five points, but no other Patrick Henry player had more than three.

Huber, Yellow Jackets take sting out of Hornets in a winning effort. “Taylor and Katie are scoring threats at all-times,” LaHaye said. “When we get the ball to them, we expect them to do something with it and most often they can do things with it.” Parsons and Khajae Hester both had 12 points while Hester had a game-high six assists. The Yellow Jackets host Virginia Wesleyan on Tuesday, February 4 at 7 p.m. before hitting the road for a game at Hollins on Saturday, February 8 at 2 p.m. “We have a lot of tough games coming up,” LaHaye said. ”Our goal is to take one game at a time. I know that is cliché, but that’s exactly what we have to do. If we just take one game at a time, and focus all of our energies and efforts on that one game, I think that we will be alright.”

By David Halstead For The Mechanicsville Local The Yellow Jacket proved to be mightier than the Hornet Saturday afternoon. Randolph-Macon College – celebrating its 25th annual Back to the Hive reunion for its women’s basketball program – knocked off visiting Lynchburg College 91-73 in a back-andforth Old Dominion Athletic Conference women’s basketball game. “This was a tremendous win for us,” head coach Carroll LaHaye said. “I am very proud of our team and [the] focus that we kept for each and every possession and that was our goal for today.” Randolph-Macon (14-5, 7-3 ODAC) took its first lead on two free-throws by junior Taylor Huber in the fourth minute of the game to make it 11-10. RMC’s second lead came on a Sarah Parsons three-pointer that gave the Jackets a 25-23 advantage. “I had recruited Taylor out of high school, and she of course ended up going Division I at Utah Valley State,” LaHaye said. “I told her that if it didn’t work out then there was a spot for her at Randolph-Macon. So, we are very lucky that she decided to come back home and suit up in a Yellow Jacket uniform.” Randolph-Macon would

reunion. Lynchburg (11-8, 8-2) tried to keep it close in the second half, but R-MC’s momentum continued by topping the Hornets in all offensive categories on its

shooting games,” said Connor Sullivan, who scored 13 points. “Tonight was obviously a great night for our team. We were working as a team, and we were feeling confident shooting the ball.” After going into the locker room with a 21-point halftime lead, Randolph-Macon continued to pour it on the Quakers.

Film series explores Jim Crow era Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com To commemorate African American History Month, the Maggie L. Walker National Historic Site will again host its popular “Matinees with Miss Maggie” film series throughout February. This year the programs will focus on the Jim Crow era, featuring a four-part series produced in 2002 by PBS, “The Rise and Fall of Jim Crow.” The free programs will take place at 1 p.meach Saturday in February at the park’s visitor center at 600 N. 2nd St. in Richmond. Reservations are not required, but seating is limited and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. The documentary film series explores the history and impact of the Jim Crow era of segregation. Emancipation ended slavery in America, but did not eliminate racism and unequal treatment in American society. Instead, a system of racial segregation called “Jim Crow” took firm hold in the years after the Civil War and held its grip until nearly the 1960s. Following each film, park rangers will lead a guided discussion to stimulate conversation about the Jim Crow era, using examples from the life and times of Maggie

L. Walker and Richmond. “Maggie Walker lived her entire life within the era of Jim Crow segregation and devoted herself to improving the lives of countless African Americans in her community and around the country – especially women and children,” park superintendent David Ruth said. “We are pleased to be able

to offer this film and discussion series to help modern audiences better understand Jim Crow’s devastating impact on generations of Americans and the inspirational work of those who fought to end it.” Matinees with Miss Maggie: The Rise

and Fall of Jim Crow opened on Saturday, Feb. 1, with Promises Betrayed (1865-1896) and continues as follows:  Feb. 8 — Fighting Back (1896-1917).  Feb. 15 — Don’t Shout Too Soon (1918-1940)  Feb. 22 — Terror and Triumph (19401954). All the programs are being offered free of charge. Seating is limited and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. The Maggie L. Walker National Historic Site has been a unit of the National Park System since 1978. A national activist for the rights of African Americans and women, Walker (1864-1934) also inspired young people to learn self-discipline, self-help and selflessness, and groomed young leaders who knew the importance of helping others and their communities. Guided tours of her restored home, located in historic Jackson Ward, are given by National Park rangers. The park visitor center is open from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

Peace isn’t running away from the discussion, either. “Elected officials should always be accessible and accountable to their constituents. I never have an issue answering questions when they exist and I always look forward to the opportunity to have conversations about more complex legislative issues like whether to expand Medicaid in Virginia. The Virginia political tradition honors civility and people deserve the facts. They don’t

deserve bullying.” Shannon defended the sign, saying expansion would be funded by borrowed money from the federal government potentially resulting in higher state taxes to pay for it. “Ultimately, just how will all of this borrowed money be repaid? Higher taxes, of course,” Shannon said. Peace, who voted against the state’s largest tax increase for transportation last year, said he tends to agree that if the federal

government breaks their promise the state would face tough choices. “Some have suggested that instead of expanding Medicaid, Virginia should explore an alternative approach to covering those in the coverage gap,” Peace said. “Such a step would not be advisable without serious reforms. Virginia cannot be entangled in ObamaCare, expanding a broken program and relying on borrowed federal

dollars,” the delegate said. The General Assembly is currently debating the issue in this year’s session, and some lawmakers have predicted serious consequences if the Medicaid is expanded. The increased cost of the program, which has had estimated impacts nearing $1 billion, according to some legislators, could force lawmakers to choose between other services or result in higher taxes for all Virginians.


Community Supported Agriculture subscriptions urged Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com With the recent cold, gardens may be the last thing on consumers’ minds. Not so for Virginia’s farmers, however, especially those who offer Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) subscriptions. The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS) encourages local food lovers to ensure their source for local produce and other farm products later in the

season by enrolling or re-enrolling in a CSA now. Many CSA farms have already communicated with current subscribers to make sure they re-enroll in a timely manner, and many are also calling for new members. CSA members pay an upfront subscription fee to farmers in return for a share of the season’s harvest, which is usually provided weekly. For convenience, many CSAs deliver to central locations for pick up closer to subscriber’s home or work on

a certain day of the week. Others have special rates if the subscriber helps with the harvest on the farm. Products almost always include fresh vegetables and fruits, but they can also include herbs, eggs, honey, cheese, butter, cut flowers and more. CSA memberships typically fill up fast so VDACS recommends early sign-up. Other advice to consumers: To find a CSA farm near you, go to VirginiaGrown.com and select the CSA button. You can refine your

search by county or zip code. VirginiaGrown.com currently lists 116 farms across the state that have CSA programs. Check out the CSA listings to see which arrangement, pricing, variety of products and pick-up location will work best for your family and act now to reserve your spot. It is important for consumers to recognize that, like any other business transaction, they should make sure they clearly understand the terms and conditions that a CSA share offers.

Consumers should discuss their expectations with the farmer offering the CSA and understand the risks assumed in the event of drought or other natural disaster or events that can affect agricultural output. General information about CSAs is available at localharvest.org/csa/. VDACS’ advice to farmers or groups offering CSAs is to list their farms or coops on the Virginia Grown website. They can do this online or by calling 804-225-3663 for more information.
