starts soliciting donations for the program. “The need keeps increasing; everybody’s resources keep decreasing,” she said on Thursday, a day after the official announcement of her selection was made at the

Northside preparing stone soup following Sunday School services Did you ever wonder what rocks tasted like? Members of the Northside Baptist Church at 7600 Studley Road in Mechanicsville may find out on Sunday, Nov. 6, following the morning worship service when stone soup is on the menu for lunch. Church members are asked to bring in something for the soup when they arrive at 9 a.m. for Sunday School. The soup will cook during the Sunday School hour and worship service and then it is stone

soup for all. Dr. Jeff Scott, senior pastor, said, “Stone Soup Sunday gives us a wonderful lesson in sharing and diversity. When each shares a little vegetable, grain, or meat for the soup, there is plenty to go around. In fact, the greater variety of items, the better the soup! Working together, we can create something fun and delicious.� The public is welcome to join in the celebration. Bring a little something for the pot at 9 a.m. and stay to enjoy it at 11:30 a.m.

A resolution that established personal property tax relief percentages for this year as proposed by the Commissioner of Revenue was adopted last Wednesday by the Hanover County Board of Supervisors. Commonly known as the “Car Tax Relief ” program, the county will receive $15,002,000 from the state for the 2011 tax year. Under the resolution, the percentage of personal property tax relief for 2011 is 100 percent for qualifying vehicles valued at $1,000 or less and 64 percent for the first $20,000 in value of qualifying vehicles with a value above $1,000. The supervisors approved the resolution, and then South Anna District supervisor John E. Gordon Jr. questioned the billing cycle for personal property taxes. While the 2011 personal property bills go out in December, the amount of tax is

he put a stocking cap on the boy’s head, gloves on his hands, wrapped him in a coat, gave him water to drink, and then called 911. “I have spoken at length with the gentlemen that found Robert,” Trice said on Saturday. He told the captain he did not want his name to be released. The man did offer the following statement: “I was guided by the Holy Spirit, to take any recognition for finding Robert would take credit away from God.” Friday evening, Robert’s parents, Barbara Locker and Robert Wood Sr., offered their thanks to those involved in bringing their son home safely. Trice shared the comments obtained by Ann Buckley, the public information officer at VCU Medical Center. Upon his discovery, the boy was taken to the Richmond hospital. “He is here and safe,” Robert’s mother said. “Thank you for your prayers, your thoughts.

based on the estimated value of the vehicle as of Jan. 1, 2011. Gordon wanted to know why wait 11 months from the date the value of the vehicle is established to send out the bill and could it be changed. County attorney Sterling Rives said the Virginia General Assembly would have to authorize the change, and the supervisors decided to confer with county representatives prior to the next session. An appropriation for $106,000 was approved for the Montpelier Center for Arts and Education Transportation Enhancement Program. The center has been awarded five federal grants totaling $648,000 and the venter is responsible for a 20 percent match. The Enhancement Project will provide for improvements to grounds and parking lots around the center. Public hearings on four items were approved without any board or citizen

Thank you for searching. He is a strong little fella. At this time, my family thanks you for respecting our privacy.” “On behalf of the family of Robbie Wood, I would like to extend our greatest gratitude to all who have had us in your thoughts and prayers, to all volunteers who have donated, time, effort, and other valuable resources, and, finally to our local, state , and federal, law enforcement, fire and rescue.” his father added. “The support we have received is overwhelming, and we wish we name everyone the list is just too great, but please know we know who you are! I would like to thank the news media for its continued coverage, As well as its respect for our privacy,” Wood Sr. said. “Robert is a very strong and determined little boy. We never gave up hope that he would return home safe,” he continued. “The family has been here every hour and been involved in the search 200 percent. Thank you so much everybody . . . Robert Is home!”

opposition. A quitclaim deed for the conveyance of 6.3 acres known as the Ashland Trolley Line from the county to the Town of Ashland for $1 was approved. A resolution allowing Hanover Tavern to construct a transportation museum, a smoke house, make parking lot improvements and other improvements and enhancements was approved. The board also amended a Conditional Use Permit for Slavic Evangelical Church that removes the requirement that it has to have a fence around a detention basin. Another CUP allows Hanneman Forest Products to have a mulch processing facility on property located at the terminus of Barricade Lane, about 500 feet from its intersection with Old Richmond Road. The next meeting of the Board of Supervisors will get underway at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 22, in the Administration Building.

At a news conference to announce that the boy had been found, Col. David R. Hines, Hanover County sheriff, said it was a group of the more than 6,000 volunteers that had joined the search since Tuesday, Oct. 25, who found Robert. The area where he was found had been searched before, and it isn’t certain how long Robert had been there. “I’m confident that in searching the area before that we didn’t walk past him,” Hines said. “We had been told by some of the experts advising us that we might find him lying in a fetal position, and I believe that was the case.” Caroline County Sheriff Tony Lippa was one of the first authorities to confirm that Robert had been found. “He is in good condition,” Lippa said. Lippa said Robert was being flown by helicopter to VCU Medical Center for an examination and treatment of any injuries. An initial report from the hospital verified that he was there and being evaluated. He

was described as being in good condition. The search has been aided by helicopters, trained dogs and water search and rescue teams who continue to work up and down the North Anna River. Dominion Virginia Power has restricted the flow of water into the river, reducing the depth in some place to inches and feet, allowing dive teams to walk the river in many places. Robert was visiting the park Sunday with his father, brother and father’s girlfriend when he walked away. The call for help was received at 2:45 p.m. “The search for Robert is over,” Hines said, “but the investigation into the incident continues.” “We still believe he’s alive and will keep looking for Robert until we find him,” Trice said over and over again as the sixday search seemed to have no end in sight. Friday, all the wishes and prayers to find him alive were answered. Melody Kinser contributed to this report.


Tourism supporters look to form panel By Jim Ridolphi For The Mechancisville Local Earlier this month, Gov. Bob McDonnell announced an increase in Virginia tourism for 2010, up almost seven percent from last year’s figures. The tourism industry supports 204,000 jobs in the state and provides $1.3 billion in state and local taxes. “Tourism is an instant revenue generator and job creator for Virginia,” McDonnell said when the 2010 figures were announced. Hanover County wants a piece of that pie, and local business leaders have been meeting for several months discussing ways to increase the county’s share of a flourishing tourism market. The efforts are bearing fruit and the group, tentatively tagged the Hanover Tourism Supporters (HTS), will seek official designation in December from the Board of Supervisors. HTS plans to submit a plan that would establish a tourism support group in the county, and put on an official stamp on the group’s agenda, attracting more tourists to Hanover County. Hanover Association of Businesses and

EDWIN GASKIN

Chamber of Commerce executive director Jennifer Scott is spearheading the effort. She held a meeting of the concerned citizens and business leaders at her office last week to outline the proposal. “We want to catch you up on some of the things that have been happening and some of the meetings that are coming up,” Scott told about a dozen interested attendees. “We’ll talk about the goals this group has set, and talk about some of the things we are working on to get ready to make the presentation (to the board).”

Most agreed that Hanover County has a wealth of historical and tourist related resources that are under appreciated and not fully utilized by the public. Edwin Gaskin, Hanover’s new economic director, said the county’s current efforts to attract tourists are regionally based with the Richmond Convention and Visitors Bureau. He said it’s important to think outside the box, citing Chesterfield’s lucrative sports tournament tourism business. “We want more people coming in and staying longer,” Gaskin said. The county’s participation share is funded by a small percentage of the lodging tax. Some said that money might be better spent in local efforts to attract tourism. Scott said the proposed committee would study those questions. “We want to make sure we’re doing the right thing, because that’s the Hanover tradition, doing things the right way,” she said. Del. Chris Peace, R-97, said he would suggest including the county’s numerous nonprofits like the historic Polegreen Church and The Parsons Cause in the tour-

On Tuesday, you have the opportunity to make a difference by going to the polls. This privilege we enjoy cannot be taken lightly. It is our right, it is our responsibility to cast our ballot. Simply put, by doing so, we become part of the solution in the direction our country, state and county take. Based on the number of letters to the editor we received heading into the Nov. 8 General Election, there is indeed great interest in the course of Hanover County. Most endorsements for candidates have been in support of the Board of Supervisors seats. As a matter of fact, our letters section is filled with readers’ opinions on those seeking office. We encourage you to take the time to learn about the candidates and what their platforms. It isn’t just about politics, consider philosophies too. Make your statement by taking part in the political process. Tuesday is your day to do just that. Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Etc. ☞ Congratulations to Anne Geddy Cross, the 2011 Hanover Christmas Mother. And thank you to the Doswell Ruritan Club for inviting us to take part in covering the announcement on Wednesday at Pebble Hill, the Doswell home of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Flippo. They were such gracious hosts and it was a delight to meet Christmas Mothers from throughout the years. This is a program that merits our attention and support. I so enjoyed interview Mrs. Cross on Thursday and look forward to working with her in making sure Hanover County children have a merry Christmas.

Thanks for helping Tackle Hunger On behalf of the parents of both the Atlee Raiders and Hanover Hawks football teams, as well as Atlee DECA and Hanover DECA, I just wanted to take a minute to thank the wonderful residents of Hanover County for helping us make this year’s Tackle Hunger Together Food Drive such a success. Before and during the game, many residents young and old came by to drop off items to be donated to both ACES (Ashland Christian Emergency Services) and MCEF (Mechanicsville Christian Emergency Fund). The coordinators of these great organizations were so happy to see all the items donated at the event and will now be able to food so many people in our local communittees. We may have been the groups coordinating the event, but the real thank you goes out to the community members who helped by donating items. Thank you so much for helping us Tackle Hunger Together.

and it is as a result of his hard work that Hanover finds itself in the wonderful position it is in today. Lastly, I want to also mention that John has been a champion of Hanover on regional issues and we can rest assured that as long as John Gordon is serving, Hanover will have a strong voice at the regional table. I would like to encourage residents of the South Anna District to allow John Gordon to continue with his legacy of rock solid leadership for you and Hanover County. Evan Fabricant Mechanicsville

Harriet Stout — from principal to gardener Community garden developed at Immanuel Episcopal Church to feed hungry families in area By Paula Neely Special to The Mechanicsville Local

F

or more than 35 years, Harriet Stout, former principal of Washington and Henry Elementary School, cultivated the development of students, teachers and the community. Now the semi-retired educator is plowing her experience into the development of a community garden at Immanuel Episcopal Church to help feed hungry families in nearby counties. Stout and a team of other parishioners broke ground on the 100-by-100foot “Garden of Grace” in a field next to the Photo submitted by Paula Neely church at 3263 Frederico Garza, a deacon Old Church Road in training at Immanuel, in Mechanicsville picks green beans for The last spring. CornerStone Food Bank. Since then, they’ve delivered more than 1,500 pounds of vegetables, including tomatoes, peppers, green beans, kale, zucchini and yellow squash to The CornerStone Food Bank in Aylett. Lima beans and collard greens are being harvested. The produce supplements canned food that Immanuel has been donating to the food bank for many years. Operated by St. David’s Community Development Center, the food bank receives donations from numerous area churches and

A variety of used and new equipment and supplies are needed to grow and deliver food. If you can provide any of the following items, contact Immanuel Church at 779-3454 or immaoch@verizon.net: Large garden tiller; hoes, rakes and wheelbarrows; scales for weighing vegetables; paper bags for carrying producer; bushel baskets; and storage shed for housing equipment.

organizations. Last year, the center provided food to 13,750 households in King William and King and Queen counties. “They’ve been incredibly grateful for the produce, and they seem to enjoy the steady stream of fresh vegetables,” the Rev. Ryan Kuratko, rector of Immanuel, said. He delivers fresh vegetables and donations of canned goods Photo submitted by Paula Neely

to the food bank each week. Kuratko said the idea for the garden emerged about a year ago after parishioners met to determine what Immanuel’s vision and mission should be for the next few years. Although Stout has almost no gardening experience, he asked her to take the lead on the project because “she has a heart for outreach,” and he needed someone who could work with and organize people. During her career, Stout worked in Hanover County Public Schools for 29 years. She was a teacher, assistant principal and principal at Washington and Henry, assistant principal at Henry Clay Elementary School and a teacher at Gandy Elementary School. Since she retired, she has coached first-year

principals part-time through the EduLead program at Virginia Commonwealth University. She also works part-time for Hanover County Public Schools. Before she started working on the garden project, Stout volunteered at a local free health clinic at the Shady Grove Methodist Church, where she was inspired by the difference the program was making in the lives of the people it served. “When an opportunity came at my own church to be involved with the planning, development and implementation of our vision for an outreach project, I just had to get involved,”

H Promised not to raise taxes - Voted to keep the tax rate at 81¢ H Promised to keep our county financially responsible - Hanover has a balanced budget and recently received a triple AAA bond rating. H Promised tax dollars would be spent efficiently and effectively - Cut the county budget for the first time in the history of Hanover, but didn’t reduce vital services or layoff employees. Because adding more people to the unemployment line just doesn’t make sense. H Promised to help maintain the older commerce areas in the Mechanicsville District - Began the first step by approving a small area plan for the village of Mechanicsville. H Promised to maintain our excellent school system - Hanover now has the second highest graduation rate and one of the lowest per student costs in Virginia.

ing is similar to education . . . both involve commitment, patience, nurturing, cultivation and community support. It’s also very rewarding to reap the results.” Stout credits Charlie Causey and Jane Ruffin, who are experienced gardeners and church members, with determining what crops to plant and when and how to plant them. Other core members of the Immanuel’s gardening team include: Cheryl Anderson, Janice Fernette, Frederico Garza, Susan Greene, Jerry Jarvis, Maria Koenig, Anne Piland and Linden Updike. Ruffin, who is a master gardener, also was instrumental in getting the garden accredited by the Virginia Cooperative Extension Office in Hanover County as a place where master gardeners can log volunteer hours toward their certification. Kuratko said he was “wonderstruck” by the initial success of the garden and the participation of the community. Area residents, middle school students, boy scouts, girl scouts, master gardeners have helped with soil preparation, picking weeding and making

compost bins and water barrels. In addition, local resident Tommy West invited church members to glean tomatoes, melons, eggplants, peppers and other vegetables from his garden to add to the harvest for the pantry. Stout said she hopes other local farmers will contact her if they have vegetables they would like to share. To help fund initial costs to establish the garden, Immanuel received a $2,500 Mustard Seed Grant from the Diocese of Virginia. Local businesses, including Home Depot in Mechanicsville, Southern States in King William County, Joe P. Clark Inc., and Ferguson Enterprises, also donated goods and offered discounts on gardening supplies. In the future, Kuratko said he hopes the garden will expand – the church has five acres that could be cultivated. He also said the garden has the potential to serve as an outdoor classroom for public or private schools in the Richmond area. He said he hopes that someday the families served by the food pantry will have

an opportunity to take gardening classes at Immanuel and receive starter kits to grow gardens of their own. “We’re a small church with a big dream,” Stout said. (About 100 people attend services on Sunday.) “Volunteers and community support are fundamental to keeping the program alive and moving forward. We’re looking for ways to develop a sustainable source of volunteers who would help maintain the development of our current garden and support our interest in enlarging it and developing educational resources and programs . . .” Immanuel Church invites members of the community to join the picking (and anything else that needs to be done) on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Families with young children should contact Stout in advance to arrange for ageappropriate activities.

ism mix. “I think the county has benefited greatly from its nonprofit community. We’ve never quantified what value we add to the equation, the money that is spent, or contributed to our various associations and foundations that also promote Hanover. That should be added to what we are doing,” he said. Scott pointed to Rocky Mount, N.C., as a prime example of a community that is doing things right when it comes to attracting tourists. It has branded the community’s tourism attractions and compiled a comprehensive campaign to get travelers along Interstate 95 “to stop and smell their roses.” Scott said there are many projects in the county just waiting for an improved economy “to pop.” There are plans for outlet shops on the Bass Pro Shops tract, and tentative plans for that area could include an expanded rest area, similar to

stops in Maryland and New Jersey. David Deal of the Hanover Tavern Foundation said the county is ready and waiting for increased tourism, and he plans to take advantage of the current sesquicentennial Civil War celebration to attract more visitors. Board of Supervisors chairman Debbie Winans also attended the meeting and suggested the group should be ready to address questions from the board when the presentation is made in December. Gaskin will host a meeting today at the county’s Economic Development Office in Rutland Commons for all interested parties. Jack Berry, president of the RCVB, will be the keynote speaker. He will field questions regarding Hanover’s role in regional tourism. Anyone interested in participating or serving on the new advisory committee should contact Scott at 994-1119 or email jennifer@habcc.com.

Firehouse’s new season gets off to a good start The Board of the Ashland Community Theater Foundation announced its third movie season opened on Saturday, Oct. 15, at the Ashland Firehouse Theater.

John and I have not always seen eye to eye on every issue, but there has never been a doubt in my mind that he has the best interests of his constituents at heart. John is a man of character and integrity, and he has worked tirelessly to maintain Hanover’s financial stability, rural character and community spirit. As a supporter of limited government, low taxes and personal responsibility, I appreciate these values as integral to Hanover County. Over the past five years, as citizens have faced the greatest economic downturn since the Great Depression, John has not sought to expand government but to require the county to live within its means as we, the citizens, have had to live within ours. It is a track record that inspires confidence, and I am proud to support John in his bid for re-election as South Anna District supervisor. Julie Nisley Glen Allen

takes time to understand the situation, represents the citizens and the best interests of Hanover. That person must have time to go and visit the site in question to see first-hand what needs to be addressed. We must have an individual who understands the importance of keeping the county safe with strong law enforcement. It requires personal involvement with different county agencies, like fire and rescue, and working with the Planning Department on development. There also is the huge responsibility of dealing with the school system and School Board. Hanover is blessed with one of the best school systems in the state. This is a result of the huge commitment of Hanover in time and money. We must have individuals who are good stewards of our money paid to the county. This person must be dedicated and able to commit time to this huge responsibility. It’s not a part-time job any longer. I have personally talked to different members who say their phone starts ringing at 6 or 7 in the morning till late at night. Elton Wade has done all of the above since the first time he was elected to the Board of Supervisors.

Elton has consistently used patience and understanding with all citizens regardless of the issue. It has been stated many times by citizens, they were given respect and time for their concerns. There have been many times he has stood up for the individual or business owner. He has a strong reputation of honesty, character and no hidden agenda. His leadership and sensible judgment is well respected by fellow members of the board. This gives his opinions strength and weight, which gives you better representation. Thank you, Elton, for your continued service and dedication to Cold Harbor, Hanover County and the many times you had to handle a no-win situation. There are good candidates out there but I tend to stay with a proven performer. This Nov. 8 be certain to vote and vote for Elton Wade (again). Paul Dorn Mechanicsville

In addition to much-needed monetary donations, the program is asking for new toys – with no batteries — in the $10 range. Cross is already scheduled to visit the Slash Church, which continues a tradition of knitting stocking caps. This year, 208 caps are being donated. Cross also will attend the Nov. 27 Gospel Sing at the Doswell Community Center. That event serves as the kickoff for the Hanover Christmas Mother. Her calendar also includes appearances in the Mechanicsville and Ashland Christmas Parades. CROSS A native of Williamsburg, Cross was working at the Capitol in Richmond when she met the man she would marry, Elmo Cross. He served Hanover County as a senator in the Virginia General Assembly. They have two sons, Garnett and Thomas. Marriage brought her to Hanover County. “Elmo was born and bred here.” Cross was working in Gov. (Mills E. Jr.) Godwin’s office and then in the Division of Industrial Development. She said she developed a specialty in special events,

through next year as well as his concern about children and the Internet. “I’m concerned about jobs and our leadership in the White House,” he said. “I agree with my wife that children are spending too much time on computers. I know they use them a lot in school, and I’m concerned that the day might come when our BUFORD WADE children are so dependent on computers that they will not know how to read, write and do arithmetic. They’ll depend on a computer to do it for them.” Buford Wade is interested in stability. “There is too much volatility in our government,” he said. “Politicians seem to be going too far to left or too far to the right. We need more

While Hanover Courthouse is her home, she remains committed to the city where she was raised. Her father, Vernon M. Geddy Jr., served as mayor of Williamsburg. “He was so involved in the community and did so many things in so many ways for different people,” Cross said. “I grew up going places with him and meeting people and being aware that that’s how you should live.” “We are so fortunate,” she added. “We need to give back; you have to give back.” Church is a very important part of Cross’s life. A lifelong Episcopalian, she is a 27-year member of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church at Hanover Courthouse. She serves on the vestry and is director of the Altar Guild and a member of the Memorials Committee. With the vestry, Cross is Hospitality chairman and works with Parish Life. She started teaching Sunday School when her sons were young and now teaches the High School Sunday School class. Cross was baptized and confirmed at Bruton Parish Church. She became familiar with the Ruritan members due to the role of the Altar Guild, which prepares the meals for the club’s meetings. Coming from Williamsburg, Cross has a great love for history. She majored in history at Hollins College in Roanoke, “and that served me well with the historical groups I have become involved in.” She serves as vice president of Preservation see CROSS, pg. 28

I don’t like seeing young men go off to war. We need to make sure our military stays strong to preserve our freedom.” “I’m concerned about jobs,” her husband Andrew said. “I’m retired, but a lot of people today are out of work. We need to elect candidates that can do something about ANDREW DOLAN getting some of these job programs going.”

Board of Supervisors: Is your quality of life better today than it was four years ago? Much has been made about the long-standing board members’ vision for the growth of the county and stewardship of the budget. A valid discussion indeed, but additional questions and facts need to asked and weighed in order to provide a satisfactory answer to my opening challenge. Since the majority of citizens in our district are comprised of families living in subdivisions, what things affect your quality of life? A few come to mind, including property tax assessments, year over year water and sewer usage increases, added recreational use fees at Hanover parks and ball fields, new traffic lights and continued commercial building projects in the Atlee Road/U.S. 301 corridor that produced major congestion. Is your commute any better? I know the traffic isn’t any better. School redistricting will happen again and if history has shown us anything over the last four years it is that the decision will be made without respecting your input. We still have great schools, but that is because of

County. As a husband, father and business owner, I understand the importance of a progressive community. As a business owner, I truly believe that the environment we have created here in Hanover serves us well. Business owners like myself are excited to come and open their doors in this community and share their passion for serving the community. As a father, it is a real peace of mind to know that my children are being educated in the best school system in the Commonwealth of Virginia. As for my family, I respect the men and women of law enforcement, fire and EMS for keeping our community safe. I talk about these things because they are important. One of the main reasons I feel these institutions and opportunities exists is because of the outstanding work of our Board of Supervisor Elton Wade. Elton is a personal friend, and someone who understands the real values of our county: safe community, world class schools and pro business. As past president of the Hanover Ruritan Club, I was First I want to say it is a real able to work directly with Elton pleasure for me and my family see LETTERS, pg. 21  to be able to live in Hanover

quality teachers, committed students and top level PTA support. A new neighbor recently asked where the closest park was where she could take her children to play. Unfortunately, all the planning experience you hear about didn’t lead to any green space for parks in the Chickahominy District. Plenty of land development has happened though. So where does that leave us? Some say “More of the same,� “We need the same ol’ representation.� I say “No thanks.� You are spending less time with your family, probably shortened your vacation or didn’t take one because you had to pay your assessments and are working a second job to pay for your children’s college education. It’s time for a change and Jim Ellis will bring a refreshing approach to the stale “that’s the best that we can do way of getting things done.� Allen Simpson Mechanicsville

As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization donations are eligible for a tax deduction.â&#x20AC;? During the week starting Saturday, Nov. 5, the Firehouse will host the first annual Ashland Foreign Film Series. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have three wonderful films to screen,â&#x20AC;? Jennifer Chambers ,co-chair along with R-MCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Patricia Reagan, said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have one film each in French, German and Spanish â&#x20AC;Ś along with subtitles. Foreign language students from R-MC and the Hanover County school system have been invited to attend these movies.â&#x20AC;? Reagan added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The films are open to the public and our free admission policy is in effect for these movies. For a listing of the movies and the dates and times you can visit our website.â&#x20AC;? The German film, In July, will be presented at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 9. According to Phillips, the plot is as follows: At the beginning of his summer holiday, a somewhat naĂŻve trainee teacher Daniel (Moritz Bleibtreu) buys a ring from a stall run by Juli (Christiane Paul. The ring bears a Mayan sun symbol, which, according to Juli, has the power to lead him to the woman of his dreams, whom he will recognise by a similar sun symbol. As Juli has the ringâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s counterpart, and as she is in love with him, she invites Daniel to a party that evening, hoping that they will meet. Curious, Daniel goes to the

party and meets Melek (Ä°dil Ă&#x153;ner), who is wearing a t-shirt imprinted with a sun symbol. Convinced that she is the woman of his dreams, Daniel talks to her. Melek is only passing through and looking for a place to spend the night. After spending the evening together seeing the sights of Hamburg, Daniel invites her to spend the night in his apartment. Daniel and Melek leave the party just as Juli arrived. She sees them leave together. In her disappointment, she decides to leave town. Next day she goes to the Autobahn to hitch a ride, with no predetermined destination. As fate would have it, Daniel is the first car to stop, on his way back from the airport, where he has just dropped Melek off. He has decided to drive to Istanbul in search of Melek, who, he knows, will be under the bridge over the Bosporus a few days later. Daniel takes Juli with him in his neighbourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rusty old car. And this is the beginning a long and exciting trip across Eastern Europe. Phillips said another important part of the Foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;visionâ&#x20AC;? is to provide a venue for other community organizations. As examples, the Patrick Henry Family YMCA, the Hanover Humane Society, Richard Hubbardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Basic Needs Foundation and Relay for Life (cancer research) are planning to use the Firehouse for their fundraising events. The Firehouse Theater has a modest rental fee schedule and doors are open for any legitimate civic, school, church, business, nonprofit or personal (e.g., a birthday party or anniversary celebration) event.

on starting our building project at the Ruritan Park. Elton came out and met with us, listened to our challenges, and helped make the approval and zoning process much easier. There is no person on the board more dedicated to the citizens of Hanover County than my friend Elton. It is my sincere hope that our great community will give this dedicated public servant the privilege to serve four more years. Thank you, Elton! Harrison Moncure Past president Hanover Ruritan Club

Taking credit A regular theme in all the incumbents’ interviews is how much they have done for Hanover County by building this or building that.

Why do they insist on taking credit for something that is funded by the taxpayer? What makes this all possible is the money they excavate from us. It would be a different story if they were somehow getting these things done using money they have made from other means. I see nothing special about spending someone else’s money? Elton Wade said they paid cash for Pole Green Elementary School and the Administration building. They paid cash because you and I were overtaxed and they had the money on hand. Like it was some kind of ingenious happening on their part. They either have to take it from the taxpayer beforehand (as they did) and pay cash, or they take it from us later. I personally think paying cash is the way to go. It cost millions just for some friendly banker to set up the bond referendum and then we pay millions in interest. What happened to the

retreats the supervisors used to take in order to hammer out their visions and mission statements? A good sober visionary should be able to see at least 10 years down the road. Using booze, chemical or drugs may help one see 20 years in the future. That’s plenty of time to save up money for a project. I am not an expert visionary but look at what I can do without experience. If we would do away with one part-time job, which we all know about, we can save approximately $1 million over the next 20 years. I say $1 million but it could be slightly more or less, depending on the benefits. Million here, million there, I bet there are enough of these little millions to be found that would build another school in 20 years. My vision is this: Someday we will have people in office that can operate within their/our means and “that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.”

14 years on the School Board and 16 as our supervisor. In those 16 years as supervisor, he has been able to guide the growth in the area with orderly planning. Together with his appointed planning commissioner, Janet Binns, they have led in a responsible and fiscally conservative manner. Additionally, Gordon has also been able to be a partner with other localities in his role as Hanover County representative to the Richmond Regional Planning Commission. His leadership has created business opportunities and regional planning opportunities for Hanover County that go unnoticed by most of his constituents. These associations and his ability to cross over and work with our neighboring jurisdictions will serve us well as “our little piece of Hanover County” is going to be under constant pressure by developers in the next few years as public utilities make their way to the southern part of the South Anna District. The other candidate, Wayne Hazzard, is a retired businessman, who seeks public office for the second time. He ran eight years ago for the South Anna District supervisor’s seat and lost to Gordon. At the time, he said that he wanted to be involved and help the citizens of South Anna. This is the

sentiment that he is espousing again this time. These worthwhile reasons coupled with his message of slow growth are confusing to me. Where has Mr. Hazzard been the last eight years, when he said he wanted to be involved? There have been dozens of meetings and facilitators that would have welcomed his input, especially regarding the strategic planning of the southern part of the South Anna District, the area that is coming up for mixeduse development. I attended most of them, and didn’t see Mr. Hazzard. And, this is land that his property is adjacent to. Why wasn’t he interested then? And, why now? In short, John E. Gordon Jr. and his ability to work (in the past) with the rest of the Board of Supervisors will benefit us all, as he continues his good works in the future.

We need to retain John E. Gordon Jr. as our representative so we have a local voice on the board. John E. Gordon Jr.’s record of commitment to the citizens of South Anna is more than enough evidence that he’s the leader for South Anna. Please join me in voting for John E. Gordon Jr. for South Anna District representative. Amy Mendelson Cheeley Farrington Precinct South Anna District Hanover County

Candidate makes sense The hyper-partisan political conversation that seems so popular these days has become more than a little tiresome. It’s abundanlty clear that extreme viewpoints from our politicians

right here in Hanover and elsewhere often ignore regular people’s common sense needs and sacrifice good public policy. That’s why Jim Ellis, Independent candidate for Chickahominy supersvisor, makes so much sense. Jim’s not beholden to a political party. Mr. Ellis is a 51-yearold father of. Jim Ellis’ ambition is to serve Hanover County to the best of his ability. Jim’s ambition is to make Hanover County an even better place to work and live. Jim’s ambition is to strengthen the public voice in the decisions that affect us the most every day -- decisions about how new developments and roads should function when they’re done, how to minimize the adverse impact of new development on our quality of life, how see LETTERS, pg. 24

These are no easy tasks when political and economic forces push more and more of the cost for these services down to the local level. These tasks are difficult ones.

for Hanover. Jim Ellis is the right choice for Chickahominy supervisor. He’s an independent candidate who’s spent his entire career as a public opinion researcher. In other words, Jim works every day listening to and understanding what people think so that better decisions can be made. Sounds like a pretty good background, don’t you think? If you’re looking for a Chickahominy supervisor who has raised his family right here, and spent his career listening and responding to people’s needs so they can make the best possible for themselves and their families, then Jim Ellis, Independent, is the right choice for Chickahominy come Nov. 8.

Wayne Hazzard is a very impressive candidate for the South Anna Board of Supervisors position and he will undoubtedly make an even more impressive supervisor if elected. He has the business experience, integrity, knowledge and convictions to be an excellent representative for his constituents and Hanover County

as a whole. However, even more impressive and, in my opinion, more important, is the fact that this is a man who is also willing to say “no” to the power players if he thinks certain agenda items would be detrimental to Hanover County and/or his constituents. I strongly encourage you to do your homework and once it’s complete, I feel confident that you will agree with me, it is time to vote for Wayne Hazzard. W.S. Wright Hanover

Good public policy focus I am tired of the bickering between the two political parties, so I am taking local action and voting for an Independent for Board of Supervisors for the Chickahominy District, Jim Ellis. Jim is concerned about three issues, among others, that I believe greatly affect quality of life in Hanover County: education, responsible budgeting, and sustainable growth. As he states, he wants to focus on “good public policy, not partisan politics.” Vote for Ellis! Judy M. Thomas Mechanicsville

Troubled by answer Last night (Oct. 18), I attended the HABCC-sponsored “Western Hanover Candidate Forum” and I am writing this letter to share my thoughts on the candidates running for South Anna representative on the Board of Supervisors. I was particularly troubled by Wayne Hazzard’s answer to the question of “rural conservation” as it pertains to economic development. I was very encouraged by the proven record of success that John Gordon and Aubrey Stanley put forward and their dedication to the citizens of Hanover. While Hanover is not perfect, its trajectory, as a great place to live and raise your family, is trending upward and should continue to do so, given the county’s five-year plan. By all objective measure our schools are top in the state, our citizens are 95 percent happy according to county surveys, and our county is one of the few with a five-year plan. This five-year plan is one that Mr. Gordon and Mr. Stanley have been and continue to be instrumental in defining and implementing. The economic development see LETTERS, pg. 26

Walter Stosch. I rarely get involved in politics or write letters to the editor, but what I heard last night from Mr. Hazzard truly concerned me. I would ask you to look at this political race for South Anna Representative closely Mr. Gordon served the citizens of Hanover for 30 years, first on the Board of Education and now on the Board of Supervisors. His experience and dedication to the county is what we need during these difficult times. Please vote you conscience in the November election. Michael E. Ruiz Montpelier

Assembly. Del. Peace has served in the House of Delegates since 2006. As president of the Hanover County Farm Bureau, I have had the opportunity to witness Del. Peace’s commitment to the agricultural industry. He has been a champion for property owners and farmers on many key votes, including property rights and agriculture animals’ standards of care. Del. Peace also patroned legislation requesting a study vital to addressing the shortage of much needed large animal veterinarians. This willingness to take on difficult and controversial issues supported by and beneficial to Virginia’s agriculture and forestry industries has earned him the endorsement of Virginia Farm Bureau’s political action committee, Virginia AgPAC. Del. Peace’s experience and leadership have well equipped him to tackle the district’s challenges. His admirable representation of the 97th House District makes him the clear choice for re-election.

of the county is important. I was pleased to hear last night how Bass Pro Shops and the new outlet mall are leading the way towards a bright economic future for Hanover. I think we need more such projects that make Hanover an appealing place for families and businesses to want to move here. Mr. Gordon provided a well thought-out explanation and plan for how Hanover would continue to grow economically, while adhering to the desire of the community to balance economic growth with a great environment to raise a family. Mr. Hazzard’s answer to the question of economic development left me thinking that he is ready to sell the county to the highest bidder. He repeatedly talked about making it easier for businesses to come to Hanover. He advocated for lifting restrictions and making Hanover an easy place to do business. I agree with that sentiment, but I am concerned that Mr. Hazzard’s approach to implementing, this well-meaning sentiment, could

ruin the rural environment in which we live. This notion was only further strengthened when Mr. Hazzard said, “I don’t get this idea of rural conservation … and I don’t believe in it.” I love living in a rural area. I like being surrounded by trees and green fields. I want my children to grow up in the fresh air of a rural county. Mr. Hazzard does not seem to understand that idea. In contrast to Mr. Hazzard, Mr. Gordon explained how under his leadership the finance committee has laid out an economic plan that provides for growth with balance. Balance based on the desires of Hanover residents. When we look at a candidate, one has to look at a couple of things: their experience, their values (principles), and who influences them. By Mr. Hazzard’s own admission last night, he does not have any experience in government. Mr. Gordon brings over 30 years of service to Hanover County. He is deeply respected by the administration at the state level and respected as a great servant to Hanover County. During this debate, Mr. Gordon clearly

Vote for representation On Tuesday night, Oct. 25, three groups in Hanover came together to sponsor a candidates’ forum for those seeking to represent their districts on the Board of Supervisors. Just Liberty, Patrick Henry Patriots and the Mechanicsville Tea Party are to be congratulated on providing a shining example of how local citizen groups are elevating the discussion and exercising their responsibility in the political arena. All prospective candidates except two participated in an informative and decorous presentation. Kevin Damian, candidate for the Ashland Dstrict did not participate, and Bucky Stanley understandably had to fulfill his obligation to be with his constituents in the heart wrenching vigil for little Robert Wood Jr. Mr. Stanley did, however, make an appearance, which indicated his understanding of the import of such a gathering. Hanover citizens should take pride in the field before them, become informed and vote for the candidate that best will represent them in Hanover

I totally enjoyed last week’s front page article, “Fundraiser aids ailing neighbor.” Just wanted to let people know that the man who is struggling with the brain tumor, Jimmy Dickerson, and who is now on the receiving end of so many people’s kindness and good deeds, is the man who showed kindness and a good deed himself this past summer. My father-in-law had a stoke four years ago and must get around with a wheelchair or sit in a chair all day was the recipient of Mr. Dickerson’s kindness. When my father-in-law went to Laura D’s with my mother-in-law for her haircut, she needed help getting him out of the car. It is always humbling to have to ask or accept help from complete strangers. Jimmy Dickerson saw a need and was able to help my in-laws. He was willing and kind. I have no doubt that Mr. Dickerson has performed other such kindnesses throughout his life because people like him

Our public schools also are rated as one of the best in Virginia. Hanover consistently is awarded for their top elementary, middle and high schools. Yearly surveys indicate that approximately 94 percent of the parents are very happy with our schools and the education their children receive daily. Elton’s three children and the 20 foster children he took into his home attended Hanover schools. These achievements were secured while at the same time we have one of the lowest per pupil costs ratio in Virginia. One of Elton’s best qualities is that he is a good listener. He values the input and feedback he gets from citizens. He holds regularly scheduled Town Hall meetings. He uses his listening skills particularly well in the issue of zoning and future growth as it relates to our longrange comprehensive plan. One of Elton’s “trademarks” is his accessibility. He encourages citizens to call him any time they have a problem. Elton has always encouraged business growth as he knows that they bring jobs and tax revenue. Elton is seen by the Hanover Board of Supervisors as a team player and a very compassionate leader.

Breidenbaugh sets district record By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com To simply say Atlee High School ran away with the Capital District cross country titles would be a gross understatement. The Raiders parlayed a dominating performance in the boys and girls subvarsity races into solid team efforts in the varsity match-ups, claiming a four-way sweep against district competition on Wednesday at Pole Green Park. Atlee head coach Jim Triemplar, who was aptly recognized as both boys and girls

District Coach of the Year, felt the subvarsity squads provided the motivation for the varsity wins. “I was really pleased with what our subvarsity kids did,” he said. “We talk about how that sets the tone for the varsity…The varsity people should look in their mind and say, ‘Hey, we’re getting the same training, we should run well too’.” The subvarsity girls, led by freshmen Kaitlyn Mason, Brittany Wilkerson followed by juniors Paige Harrar and Katherine Leitch took the top four slots and the Raiders placed seven runners in the top-10 to run past Lee-Davis 17-43. While the girls’ performance was impressive, the boys were

even more so, putting the first seven runners across the finish line and 11 of the first 12 to beat Lee-Davis 15-51. Senior Sean Gardner led the way for Atlee followed by junior Fitz Rogers, freshman Andrew Franco and junior Tyler Favale. The momentum carried over to the boys varsity race where Atlee sophomore Nathaniel Hall finished with a time of 16:12.00 to claim Boys Runner of the Year honors and edge out Glen Allen’s Stanley Davis by a 14-second margin. Atlee junior Griffin Carmichael was third at 16:47.00. In all, the Raiders placed seven runners in the top 12 slots to claim a 41-66 victory over

Lee-Davis. Glen Allen took third (66) followed by Hanover (77), Henrico (148), Varina (162) and Highland Springs (167). Hanover senior James Poyer took fourth followed by Lee-Davis junior Paul Adam, Varina’s Darrick Thornhill, Glen Allen’s Alex Byrd and Hanover’s Lucas Nachman. Lee-Davis’ Grayson Morgan and Houston Stevenson were ninth and 10th but Atlee solidified their team win by placing five runners in the 11-16 slots; Zach Snider, see ATLEE, pg. 39 `

Evan Ratke, Michael Spagnolo, Bizz Alidost and Austin Smith. Hanover sophomore Caleb Haneline broke up that group by finishing 13th. “Spagnolo stepped up and ran real well,” Triemplar said. “Zach Snider looked like he was ready to fade but he stepped up and was able to finish it. Evan Ratke had a good finish so I’m pretty pleased.” Such could not be said for Lee-Davis coach Neil Matthews and Hanover coach Cameron Hopper. “We didn’t run very well,” Matthews said accepting responsibility for the outcome. “I just think we weren’t prepared to run. “In all three races today our kids went out, we ran tentative,” he said. “We didn’t compete and that’s why we ended up in the team scoring where we did.” Likewise, Hopper expected a better overall performance from his defending district champion boys. “The guys I still haven’t figured out,” he said. “I was a little bit disappointed.” At worst, Hopper expected Poyer and Nachman to finish second or third instead of fourth and eighth. Both runners were on the heels of Hall for the first half of the race but they began to fade. “They were doing the best they could,”

Hopper said. “Still, a little disappointed in our top two runners because they can certainly do a whole lot better.” But Hopper found much less fault with his girls as sophomores Molly Breidenbaugh and Annie Spears claimed a onetwo finish in the district varsity race. “You can’t get much better than that,” Hopper joked. Breidenbaugh had dominated district competition all season but her performance in the championship was something else. A third of the way through the race, Breidenbaugh took a substantial lead over Spears and Lee-Davis’ Bonny Turnage. By the time Breidenbaugh exited the woods for the final third her lead was nothing short of

astounding. So much so that on-lookers began to wonder if the rest of the field had somehow gotten lost. “I knew there wasn’t that much competition for me but I love racing so I wasn’t just going to go and run an easy race,” Breidenbuagh said. With no one even remotely in site, Breidenbaugh crossed the finish line with a Pole Green Park Capital District record time of 18:35.00; a jaw-dropping 1:11.34 ahead of her second place teammate. “I knew there was going to be some distance but I didn’t know it would be that much,” she said. Though his star set a new record, Hopper was even more pleased with Spears, who barely edged out Glen Allen’s Katie Sperry in a sprint down the stretch for a near photo finish; a margin of 00:00.17 of a second. “Annie ran pretty impressive,” Hopper said, noting that Spears beat several girls she had lost to throughout the regular season. “She came back and just raced a great race, gutted it out at the end and nipped the Glen Allen girl by just a fraction of second.” Hanover’s Rachel Gaunt was 11th. Lee-Davis’ Victoria Doss and Bonny Turnage claimed third and fourth while team-

mates Samantha Perkins and Haley Uliasz took 14-15. But Atlee took the team win 40-47 over Hanover by filling seven of the eight slots between the Cfeds pairs. Junior Dezi Bennett was sixth followed by Scarlett Bavin, Katie Gardner, Chole Bavin and Katie Bland. Julia Fraser was 12th followed by Katt Grasberger. Lee-Davis finished third (56) followed by Glen Allen (104), Henrico (136), Highland Springs (181) and Varina (194). “We ran well as a pack and that’s important,” Triemplar said of his Raider girls but added a need for improvement this Saturday. “To advance in the regional we’re going to have to have somebody move up. Right now we’re not getting that low number.” Breidenbaugh, who will be one of the favorites in this Saturday’s Central Region meet at Pole Green Park, feels all of her fellow Hanover County competitors hold an edge. “I feel bad for people who never get to come here,” she said. “LeeDavis, Atlee and us, we get to come here pretty often so it gives us an advantage.” For complete district results go online to www.mechlocal. com

Hawks fly to district championship 4-1 Hanover defense downs Atlee for Capital title By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Beating an opponent three times in a single season is never an easy task but on Thursday night the Hanover field hockey squad (16-2) pulled off the trifecta sweep of rival Atlee (113) for the second straight year. With a 4-1 victory over the Raiders in the Capital District field hockey tournament championship game, the Hawks ran their league winning streak to 22 games. Although Hanover and Atlee entered the tournament as the two top seeds, neither breezed to the championship match. Hanover held off #4

seed Henrico for a 2-1 semifinal win and #3 seed Lee-Davis took Atlee to two overtimes before the Raiders escaped 2-1. Playing on the artificial turf at Sports Quest in Midlothian, the game took on a faster pace than the matches on Hanover County’s natural grass surfaces but both teams appeared up to the challenge. The action raced up and down the field but early on neither squad could capitalize on getting the ball in close. The Hawks finally broke the stalemate midway through the first half. In the 13th minute of play, Hanover senior Julia Dry found pay dirt, retrieving the ball off a block from Atlee keeper Hayley Smith and going on the attack from the right side for the score. The Hawks upped their advantage to 2-0 seven minutes

later following another rejection by Smith, who had 14 saves on the night. Hanover senior Abby Bellows took the rebound and quickly fed the ball to teammate Michelle Knizner on the left side. The bang-bang play resulted in the freshman firing past Smith before the keeper could react. “She’s been great,” Hanover head coach Sarah Bottorff said of Knizner. “A real presence up top; she’ll fight for that ball and get in there and put it in there on you, which she did.” The Hawks added to their lead when Bellows connected from the top of the arc for a 3-0 Hanover lead. “Score early, score often is what we’ve been aiming at all season and we really pulled it Kenny Moore/For The Local out this time,” Bellows said. Back from left: Hanover’s Bailey Lein, Madelyn Clark, Lauren Kesler and Brenna Crawford line up

Knizner completed 10-of18 passes for 166 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. Running back L.J. Jones ran the ball 28 times for 142 yards and three touchdowns. The victory sets up a pivotal Capital District battle next week between the Hawks, ranked No. 6 in the Times-Dispatch poll, and third-ranked Varina, which defeated Glen Allen 547 Friday night. “We’re excited. A lot of fun stuff is on the line,” Hanover coach Josh Just. “We’re look-

ing forward to our rematch with Varina, and I know they’re looking forward to their rematch with us. It’s going to be fun.” The Capital District has been especially tough this season. After a frustrating 24-14 loss to Atlee earlier this month, Hanover (7-1, 4-1 Capital) has been regrouping. That process seemed endangered when Sam Rogers dislocated an elbow against Henrico two weeks ago. But Knizner has stepped up nicely.

Knizner and Jones keep Hawks rolling Hanover downs Lee-Davis 38-20

By Dave Lawrence For The Mechanicsville Local Sam Rogers may be out, but Hanover still has plenty of weapons in its offensive backfield. The Hawks used those weapons – especially quarterback Andrew Knizner – to great effect Friday night as they defeated visiting Lee-Davis 3820 in a Capital District contest.

Hanover’s Lawrence Jones (4) breaks loose for a big gain against Lee-Davis. Jones ran 28 times for 142 yards and 3 TD’s.


HAWKS Continued from pg. 40 b

Just as they did in their final regular season matchup with Atlee, Bottorff felt the early lead allowed her Hawks to play loose over the remainder of the contest. “It kind of gives you a little more confidence with going in and playing your hardest,” she said. Likewise, Atlee head coach Alyssa Farling felt the multiple score deficit changed the mindset of her Raiders. Instead of pushing on offense, Atlee mentally dropped back into a protective mode. “I do feel like after that second or third goal, you see us, we feel like we need to play a little more defensively,” Farling said. “That hurts you on offense when you start doing that.” As a result, senior standout Emily Dietrick repeatedly moved the ball into scoring position and was unable to find help as most of her teammates were back on defense. To add to that disadvantage the Hanover defense created a virtual forest of wood between Dietrick and the goal. “They were all over us,” Farling said. Defense was a point of emphasis for the Hawks. “Keep

KNIZNER Continued from pg. 40 b

Another player who had a good night for Hanover was Justin Peebles. Peebles has been out for most of the season as he recovered from a broken collarbone. But he established himself as Knizner’s favorite target, usually a step ahead of Lee-Davis defensive backs, good enough to catch seven passes for 148 yards and a touchdown. “They did a good job of using him,” Lee-Davis coach Zac Hayden said of Peebles. “He had a great game.” The loss may have doomed the Confederates’ hope for a Division 5 playoff berth.

them from scoring especially Emily (Dietrick) because Emily has a great shot,” Bellows said. “Keep her out of the circle, don’t let her have any shot, don’t let anybody have any shots, clear to the midfielders and go from there. The goal is to frustrate them, don’t let them have the ball and get an advantage.” The trio of keeper Bailey Lien, Rosie Easter and Madelyn Clark provided the majority of that frustration for the Raiders. “That’s what’s made us so strong the last two years has been our defense,” Bottorff said. “Madelyn Clark, Rosie and our keeper, they work really well as a unit and they work really hard to keep that ball out of the net for us.” Lien, who picked up 14 saves in the contest, repeatedly got up on the Raider attack and swamped the space between the uprights. Most notable was a second half shot from Bellows that rocketed towards the goal at head height. A quick sweep of Lien’s arm deflected the potential goal and set the Hanover offense back in motion. “I’ve been so pleased with her,” Bottorff said. “She’s come up from being the reserve keeper last year and not really playing in a whole lot of matches to

being out starting keeper and just coming up big for us a lot of times this year.” But it was Clark that provided the most frustration for the Raider offense. “I credit #15 Madelyn Clark,” Farling said. “She’s a wall. She was on the entire backfield. She played really good defense for them tonight. Every time we hit it down there, there she was.” So much so that Farling gave her team specific instructions

during a late time out. “That was our time out, ‘Let’s not hit it to Clark anymore’,” she told her squad. “Let’s make sure we hit it wide then cross it in.” Five minutes into the second half Atlee got on the board. Lein blocked a shot from Dietrick and junior Ally Ritchie corralled the carom and fired back past a diving Lein for the goal. The Hawks created the final margin midway through the second half when Bellows got

low in front of a crowded box and somehow found daylight for a 4-1 lead. Both Atlee and Hanover began regional play on Monday after press deadline. Atlee played Central District #1 seed Thomas Dale while Hanover took on Matoaca. Making only the school’s second appearence in regional play, the Hawks feel they are ready to make some noise. “I think everybody around us was

really shocked that we made it to regionals (last year) because nobody really pays attention to Hanover field hockey,” Bellows said. “But this year everybody’s expecting a little more. We’re expecting a little more and we’re really excited to go.”

“We made some mistakes,” Hayden said. “We didn’t execute, we need to do some things better. We’ll get back to the drawing board Monday and try to finish out the season on a high note.” Lee Davis (4-4, 2-3) was led by quarterback Israel Vaughan, who carried the ball 18 times for 167 yards and two touchdowns. He also completed 7of-19 passes for 63 yards and another score. Hanover wasted no time trying to show who was boss on its home field. The Hawks’ first score came on the first play of the game when Xavier Crocker returned the opening kickoff 64 yards for a touchdown.

While the Confederate defense twice stopped the Hanover juggernaut in the first half, most of the time Knizner’s ability to connect with receivers, such as Peebles, or Jones ability to break through the line eventually produced a score for the Hawks. After briefly spotting LeeDavis to an 8-7 lead following a 43-yard run by Vaughan midway through the first quarter, Hanover went ahead for good with a 37-yard pass from Knizner to Peebles. The Hawks scored on their next two drives, on 14- and 8-yard runs by Jones, to take a 28-8 lead. Knizner’s passing played a key role in setting up the latter score. First, Knizner

connected on a 46-yard pass to Peebles that gave the Hawks a first-and-10 at the Lee-Davis 25. Lee-Davis’s offense showed some grit in the second half. On the opening drive of the third quarter, the Confederates drove 66 yards, capping the drive with a 25-yard run by Vaughan. Taking advantage of a fumbled Hanover punt return in the fourth quarter, the Confederates scored on a 30-yard pass from Vaughan to Tyrell Eaton. In both cases, conversion attempts failed. Hanover scored twice more in the second half. After a holding call stalled a long drive in the middle of the third, the Hawks settled for a 30-yard

field goal by Matt Palmen to take a 31-14 lead. After a fumble caused by a bad snap nearly ended the Hawks’ next-to-last drive, giving them a third-and-13 at the 50-yard line, backup running back Lamont Stubbs broke loose for a 14-yard run to keep the drive alive. Stubbs carried the ball five times to get the ball to the 18, then Jones did the rest, scoring on a 16-yard run.

Big losses shouldn’t slow Yellow Jackets More athletic R-MC will contend for ODAC title By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Nine players are gone from last year’s Randolph-Macon men’s basketball team. Seven went out as graduates and two to transfer. All nine played. Six logged major minutes, two were solid support players and one was an up and comer. But surprisingly, despite the losses the Yellow Jackets should once again be in the hunt for an ODAC title and a NCAA berth. Overshadowed in the loss of players such as Danny Jones, Brandon Braxton, Eric Pugh and company, is the return of a solid core that is both athletic and talented. Seniors Calvin Croskey and Adam Desgain along with junior Lamar Giggetts form a nucleus around which head coach Nathan Davis plans to build a highly competitive squad. “We have eight guys that have been through it before,” Davis said. “We have eight guys that were going against a high level of competition every day.” Last season Croskey logged more minutes than any Yellow Jacket, Desgain was the top three point shooter (.442) and Giggetts kept improving as the season progressed to earned All-Tournament honors as a role player. Junior guard/forward Matt Blumel also returns

to the team this season. As a freshman in the 2009-10 season, Blumel was in the rotation and played in every game down the stretch including the Final Four. But the talent does not stop there. The Yellow Jackets return an athletic group of players that were stuck in the rotation behind Jones and Braxton. “It’s hard for a freshman to beat those guys out,” Davis said but noted the experience of practicing against the elder pair will pay off this season. “They got the best competition of anyone day in and day out. They competed against them at a very high level. “I think we’ve got returning guys that people haven’t seen on the floor a whole lot but are talented and will be ready to step up and make plays and help us win games,” Davis said. One of those is junior center Dylan Cole. The Hanover product

has bided his time and is now ready to show what he can do. “For two years he’s battled every day against Braxton, Jones and Campion and those guys and has gotten better and better and has had a great fall,” Davis said. “He clearly has been playing well.” Giggetts and sophomore Andre Simon will provide a physical presence for the Jackets. Some of the most electrifying dunks of the season came at the hands of Simon in a reserve role. “I would say without question top to bottom we’re more athletic,” Davis said. “I don’t think we’re quite as big but we’ll definitely play faster.” Despite Cole’s improvement, Davis expects to use a rotation of players

From far left: Sophomores Andre Simon (23) and Jamie Robinson (2), juniors Lamar Giggetts (above left) and Dylan Cole (above) along with seniors Calvin Croskey (above right) and Adam Desgain (right) will give RandolphMacon head coach Nathan Davis (far right) talent and experience. Despite losing nine contributors from last year’s team the Yellow Jackets will once again be a factor in the ODAC race.

Does Davis feel any trepidation about putting players with no college experience at the point? “Not with those guys,” he said. Walker and Sullivan are Charlotte, NC products who both got looks from Division I teams. Badger had opportunities to play in Division II but favored the R-MC environment instead. “I think we’re in good shape there,” Davis said. Also as sophomores, Davis expects guards Jamie Robinson and Chase Desgain to be in the mix. Despite having one of the most experienced teams in Division III last season, Davis said he has enjoyed the early part of this season more. “I think this year’s probably a little more fun,” he said. “Last year with all those guys coming back, the general expectations were so high that there’s pressure to be perfect right away. “Where our expectations are really high this year, there’s still a lot to learn,” Davis said. “I think our guys have been working very hard and taking the coaching very well so it’s been exciting.” The biggest challenge for the Yellow Jackets will be replacing the point production of Jones, Braxton and Pugh, which accounted for half their scoring. But Davis believes this year’s squad has the see JACKETS, pg. 43 `

But the player everyone wants to see take the court is 7-foot, 300 lb freshman center Hunter Fromang. “He’s a big boy,” Davis said. “He’s enormous.” Davis did not go so far as saying Fromang is a project player but did note he has only three years of basketball experience. “I wouldn’t rule him out of seeing the floor this year,” Davis said. ““He has great hands. He catches everything. “He’s got some things he’s going to do well because you can’t teach size and ability,” Davis said. While Croskey is the most experienced guard on the team he will not run the point this season. Instead that duty will be divided between a group of four freshmen; Marcus Badger, Trent Walker, Connor Sullivan and Kyle King.

Josh Wells: From quarterback to lineman Former Hanover QB in his fourth position in three years at JMU By Tim Pearrell Media General News Services If he’s tempted to sneak into the quarterbacks meetings at James Madison, Josh Wells won’t say so. The former quarterback at Hanover High is content to hang out and have fun with the group he’s joined: the offensive linemen. Wells has changed positions for the Dukes almost as often as someone enduring a restless night of sleep. The redshirt sophomore has been a tight end, defensive tackle, tight end, left tackle and now right tackle. That’s the position into which he seems to have settled as the starter for the ninthranked Dukes, who took on No. 15 Old Dominion on Saturday in Norfolk. “To be an ex-quarterback and to be his first year at offensive tackle, I think he’s playing pretty dadgum good,” JMU coach Mickey Matthews said. There were no major offers for a 6-foot-5, 220-pound pocket passer who threw for more than 4,000 yards and 28 touchdowns at Hanover. Some Division III schools showed interest in Wells as a quarterback. JMU was the only FCS school to offer him a

Josh Wells has gone from quarterback at Hanover to playing on the offensive line at JMU.

chance as a recruited walk-on — at tight end. “I just figured I wasn’t the fastest guy,” Wells said. “I wasn’t the quarterback they were looking for. . . . I had to go with what was offered to me.” Wells always was a quarterback in middle school and high school, so the move to tight end was unusual enough. Then there was the odyssey of position changes. Wells redshirted his first year as a tight end. The coaching staff switched him to defensive tackle as a freshman to provide depth because of injuries. He got into a few games and recovered a fumble against Richmond before going back to tight end because of another

Rohle’s 5 TDs lift Tigers to 63-49 win Staff reports Despite a rocky start, Hampden-Sydney was able to remain perfect in ODAC play (4-0, 7-1 overall) with a 6349 win at Guilford College on Saturday, thanks largely to a pair of former Hanover players. Senior running back Kirk Rohle accounted for 232 yards of offense while scoring five touchdowns. Not to be outdone, linebacker Kenny Fryman led the defense with 12 tackles, nine

of them solo including four tackles for a loss, a sack and two pass break-ups, one of which was intercepted for a touchdown. Atlee alums played a role in the win as well with senior John Michael Sparagna pulling in a 7yard TD pass from Travis Lane (Mills Godwin) and freshman linebacker Josh Doggett recording one of the best games of his young career with six tackles. H-SC (7-1, 4-0) will face Washington and Lee this

Saturday at 1 p.m. for the Old Dominion Athletic Conference title. Lane threw for 303 yards and three touchdowns for the Tigers. Zac Halbert led the Quakers (1-7, 0-4) with 396 yards and seven touchdown passes.

injury. With holes to fill on the offensive line, he started spring practice at left tackle. He moved to right tackle before preseason practice and earned a scholarship. Through weightlifting and eating — oatmeal, pasta, chicken, steak — he’s put on 75 pounds and weighs 295. “The best way to describe it is football means a lot to Josh, to be a good player,” Matthews said. “He improves all the time. He’s just a very hard worker. He’s very conscientious. “We always talk about him in our scrimmages (as being) very tenacious. Whatever Josh has, you’re going to get it for three hours.” Wells’ strength has been his

run-blocking. Behind a line that features a redshirt freshman, two sophomores, a junior and a senior, the Dukes rank first in the Colonial Athletic Association and eighth nationally in rushing at 242.7 yards per game. “We have fun with each other on and off the field,” said Wells, who plays golf and fishes with roommates Matt Krout and Scott Jones. “I think that helps during games. We trust each other. “I embrace (being a lineman). It’s definitely been a journey coming from being a quarterback. Tim Pearrell is a staff writer for the Richmond Times Dispatch.
