STOPS AT EVERY HOME IN TOWN

Good weather = huge parade success By Melody Kinser mkinser@mechlocal.com Someone got their wish early this year: The weather was ideal for the Mechanicsville Christmas Parade on Sunday. Under clear skies and comfortable temperatures, the holiday event in the village saw streets lined hours before the 3 p.m. kickoff. Sponsored by the Mechanicsville Rotary Club and Mechanicsville Ruritan Club, the parade — like the Hanover Tomato Festival — is a tradition that boasts 100 entries, including high school march-

ing bands, fire/EMS vehicles, elected officials, veterans, scouts and, as expected, that jolly ol’ elf, Santa Claus. The past few years, Santa brought the North Pole cold with him to Mechanicsville. For 2011, however, the weather was welcoming — and the turnout was proof. Capturing awards were: Atlee Community Church, Kidstaff, Best in Keeping with the Theme (Memories of Christmas); Mechanicsville Riding Club, Best Equestrian Unit; Fishers of Men/Starlight

‘Scrooge — The Musical’ opens Friday at Fairmount

F

airmount Christian Church at 6502 Creighton Road in Mechanicsville is bringing “Scrooge — The Musical” to Mechanicsville this Christmas season. The live, family-friendly show is the extravagant Broadway musical based on Charles Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol. The production features more than 30 cast members, a pit band, an accompanying choir, and more than 15 musical numbers. The church will be staging eight shows over the second and third weekends in December, and all shows are free and open to the community. Show schedules are as follows: ★ 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 9. ★ 2 and 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 10 (two shows on Saturday). ★ 6 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 11. ★ 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 16. ★ 2 and 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 17 (two shows on Saturday). ★ 6 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 18. The shows are free — no ticket is required, just come by and come in. Doors will open one hour before show time. Show-goers are encouraged to arrive early, as previous productions have resulted in standing room only situations and/or a full

house. A nursery for ages 4 and under will be offered at the Sunday performances only. “We’re excited to be offering this outstanding show as a Christmas gift to our friends in the community,” said Rick Raines, senior minister at Fairmount Christian Church. “It’s a great story of redemption that most people are familiar with, and these shows will be an excellent opportunity for our neighbors to enjoy an evening of fun and entertainment. We’re looking forward to seeing many old friends at the shows, and we hope to meet some new friends too.” “Scrooge — The Musical” is the latest in a line of large scale musical productions done by Fairmount. Previous shows include “Best Christmas Pageant Ever,” “The Christmas Post,” “The Choice,” and “Bow The Knee.” The shows are always offered free of charge, and have generally produced crowds of more than 500 people for each performance. “Scrooge” is the first to be staged over two weekends so the extra shows can accommodate the anticipated demand. “Scrooge” is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Inc.

OPINION | The Local Views From the editor

HAAC is a treasure for all residents to enjoy The Hanover Arts & Activities Center may be located in Ashland, but it is, without a doubt, a Hanover County hub of activity. It is truly a location for residents from throughout the county to enjoy and participate in the arts. As 2011 winds down, HAAC is looking to the community for support. Our help can ensure the continuation of musicals, AARP meetings and Hanover Concert Band rehearsals. But that’s not all. HAAC also is involved in the success of the Hanover Idols talent competition and serves as the home of the summer Children’s Theatre Camp. According to a letter from Sharon Stiles, president of HAAC’s Board of Directors, the organization has a “three-pronged mission — to provide a space where 1) arts; 2) education; and 3) the community come together.” Programs offered by HAAC are either free of charge or at low cost. Stiles said they also provide “a significant amount of scholarship support, provided by your donations and grants, for those who might need financial assistance to join us in our programs.” If you would like more information on the programs offered by the Hanover Arts & Activities Center, call 798-2728 or visit www.hanoverarts. org. HAAC is on Facebook: www.facebook.com/hanoverarts.

☞ As expected, the Mechanicsville Christmas Parade was a rousing success on Sunday. A village tradition, the parade, sponsored by the Mechanicsville Rotary Club and Mechanicsville Ruritan Club, is a mustsee every year. Thanks to the year-round efforts of some truly dedicated Rotarians and Ruritans, we enjoyed an afternoon filled with Christmas cheer, talented marching bands, decorated floats, community leaders and, of course, jolly ol’ St. Nick. The 2011 edition of the Mechanicsville Christmas Parade kept the tradition alive by providing a family-friendly, enjoyable and memorable day. Thanks to all involved! Melody Kinser

Issue with cartoon I do not mind when I see political cartoons that are contrary to my political opinion, or skewer those I admire, but I do mind such cartoons when they distort the truth for partisan political ends. Your recent cartoon suggesting Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan was improperly involved in the upcoming national health care lawsuit was unfair and misleading. Justice Kagan had just about nothing to do with the health care legislation during her time in the current administration and has no reason to recuse herself from

the deliberation. Justices Scalia and Thomas, however, who were recently feted and celebrated by the very law firm bringing the suit to the courts, do have ample reason to recuse themselves, and they refuse to do so. Oh, and by the way, the law is not called Obamacare, but is the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Judy M. Thomas Mechanicsville see LETTERS, pg. 13

then with the next breath make statements like “all are atheists.” Or that atheists are the only correct view of The Bible when you said, “Atheists generally see The Bible for what it is: a book of myth.” I do agree with some of your letter in regard to religion or even organized religion. Your letter also mentions “faith” and makes comparisons between those who have faith

that are associated with organized religion and those that are not, and both have strong faith. I would like to address all the topics you touched one, but will, for now, address just one, faith. Faith is when one places his or her trust in something or someone. I would submit to you that

it is not so much how strong a person’s faith or belief is that is important, but how sure is the object or person that the faith is placed in. We demonstrate faith every day of our life. When you sit in a chair, you have faith it will hold you. You have faith that when you drive over a bridge, it will not fall. When you fly on a jet, you have faith it will make it safely to your destination. Christianity is not about religion, denominations or organizations. It is about a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. For me and millions of others that have placed our faith in Jesus Christ, we must realize that our faith, regardless of how strong it is, it is only as valid as the object or person it is placed in. Do you believe that a person named George Washington was a person that lived in the past and was the first president of the United States? If you do, then that takes faith. My question is this: Why do you believe that George Washington was real? Most everything we believe to be true from history is because of the historical evidence that we have. We examine all the evidence

GOOD TEA PARTY BAD

and come to a logical conclusion based on the evidence — artifacts, testimonial writings, documents, libraries and other historical evidences. What if I were to tell you “I do not believe that George Washington ever existed and that he was not the first president of the United States?” You would say I was wrong. I could make the same argument that you made in your letter, when you said that someone must believe The Bible to be true to accept that it is the Word of God. I am here to tell you that regardless of what a person holds to be true about anything such as The Bible, the Quoran, or even Jesus Christ, or any other object or person, it is not the belief or faith that makes the object true or valid, it is the evidence and validity of the object itself that determines its trustworthiness. Many make statements and conclude The Bible is not the Word of God but have not truly examined it and studied it. Many have set out to prove that The Bible was not the Word of God and that Jesus Christ was not God. After setting out to disprove these beliefs, and gathering all the evidence, they ended up convinced that just the opposite was true. see LETTERS, pg. 17

Tracy Aitken, librarian at Oak Knoll Middle School, was named Virginia’s 2011 School Librarian of the Year. The announcement was made at the Virginia Educational Media Association (VEMA) conference Awards Banquet where Aitken was selected from a field of seven regional winners from across the state.

LETTERS Continued from pg. 15 

May I suggest the book, “Evidence that Demands a Verdict,” by Josh McDowell. He was one of the non-believers that set out to prove Jesus was not God and that The Bible was not true. And, after looking at the evidence realized that “to reject the evidence of Christ, one must commit intellectual suicide,” the evidence for Christ, His resurrection and The Bible are so overwhelming that you must deny the evidence of truth to believe they are not true. So, it actually takes more faith to not believe in God or The Bible than to simply believe. So, if our faith is in the person of Jesus Christ and His death and resurrection on the cross, the real questions that we need to ask are these: 1. Did the person Jesus Christ actually exist? 2. Did He die on the cross? 3. More importantly, did He actually rise from the dead? If any of these can be proven not to be true, then, regardless of how strong my belief or faith is in Jesus, it is useless. Historical evidence alone supports the fact that the person Jesus Christ actually did live in time and space and history. Not even the “atheists” deny Jesus’ existence. If they do, then they must commit intellectual suicide. Denying all the historical evidence alone would be about as sane as saying George

Washington never existed. So, we are left with the question: Who was He? This is the argument known as (Lord, liar or lunatic). Jesus made every claim to be God in flesh. So He was either God or not. Even those that do not hold to the belief that Jesus was actually God call him a good teacher. Well, if that is true, then Jesus either was a deceiving liar that knew He was not God and convinced many that he was, or he actually believed he was God and was not. That makes Him either a liar or lunatic. When you examine all the historical evidence both inside and out of the Bible, when you read what was written about Him by both his enemies and friends and those that were neither, there is nothing that leads you to believe He is either a knowing liar or that he was a lunatic. This only leaves us with the third option, Jesus was and is exactly who He said he was: God. This is proven through his resurrection from the grave. Some will try to discredit the resurrection, saying it is impossible. Or that “it cannot be scientifically proven.” I agree it cannot be scientifically proven that it happened. But the opposite is also true it cannot be scientifically proven that it did not happen. So, how do we answer the question of His resurrection? The historical evidence is what

you look at. The historical evidence both inside and outside of The Bible supports the truth of Jesus’ life, His death, His burial, His resurrection from the dead and His ascension into heaven. I will leave you with this: Honestly look at the evidence

because we all believe in some- life. thing. If you are right and there John Agostino is no God, then nothing really Aylett matters. But if Jesus Christ is who He said He is and the historical evidence supports this, then Jesus is worth the attention.

’Tis the season to not drive impaired With holiday gatherings underway, troopers with the Virginia State Police want to remind motorists that buzzed driving is drunk driving. Thursday, Dec. 1, marked the beginning of the Holiday Season Impaired Driving

the effects of alcohol or other drugs. It is a serious crime that kills every 30 minutes. Since Jan. 1, 2011, preliminary figures show that the Virginia State Police Richmond Division has investigated 14 see IMPAIRED, pg. 24

more quickly and effectively, add magnesium. Want your fire or explosion to grow more rapidly, add oxygen. Freedom is a catalyst, that to the degree it is allowed, enables the most efficient and unstoppable success in the evolution of our intelligence, innovation and invention. Curtailing freedom limits our adaptability to our environment, and our survivability. There are costs for freedom. Number one, is the uneven distribution of wealth. But what is fair here? Rewards for innovation, risk taking and investment in time and money are available to all: The better the success, the greater the reward. The entire population benefits. To say that it is unfair to reward those that have risked their time and money to better the lives of others is pure foolishness. The result will be no more inventions, innovations or investment

in products and services that make life better for all of us. Freedom is exactly what maximizes human beings’ progress. Whatever is not in tune with nature will eventually be destroyed by nature. To the extent that freedom is compromised, misdirected, or outlawed, bad things will quickly happen. Robert Mackay Mechanicsville

The war cry of tax the rich Something that just about everybody loves, and that makes politicians drool, is the war cry, “Tax the rich!” Here’s how this work of genius unfolds. Many of the poor blame their situation on the rich, believing that the only way to become wealthy is to be a crook and steal, cheat, lie and exploit workers. So, anyone who can make the well-to-do suffer is a hero

and worth voting for. The rich don’t care. A tax on all of the successful entrepreneurs is looked upon as just another cost of doing business. So, business owners just raise prices to cover the increased taxes, and the public, including the poor, pay more for everything. In reality, the public and the poor end up paying for the increased taxes on the rich and don’t see it. The poor will feel some justice has been done. Many of the wealthy are not business owners, and live off stocks, bonds or investments. Income tax increases are not much of a problem. Those entrepreneurs who are in the process of becoming wealthy get hit hard and often have to curtail plans for growth. Less growth means less jobs. More important, there is less competition for the already well established, and higher prices can be maintained. Politicians trying to increase taxes on the rich receive more

God’s gift to His people I write this to all the people I love. My sons, my sister, my wife, my nephew and niece, my granddaughters, my brothers and sisters in Christ. And to the unsaved. I want to tell you about a Savior, it started back over 2,000 years ago, when God so loved the world (us, you and me) that

he sent his only Son, to die for you and me. That whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16. You might say why do I need a savior, I’m a good person, why wouldn’t God let me in heaven. For one thing, God is a perfect just God. That means He cannot tolerate sin. We were born with the sin nature, this we got from Adam and Eve when they disobeyed God in the Garden of Eden. Strike 1. Romans 3:1012. There is no one righteous, not even one. Strike 2. Romans 3:23. For all have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of God. Strike 3. We are out before we even get up to bat. Now you may think why would a loving God send me to hell? God does not send us to hell, we do that to ourselves by ignoring God’s greatest gift to mankind, Jesus Christ. You know God loves us so much more than we can even

An eternal separation from from God in a place called hell? What is hell? People say hell is on earth. Others say it’s a big party where I’ll meet my friends far from the truth. Hell is a place of suffering and torment. It is a place of unquenchable fire, darkness, weeping and gnashing of teeth. Tormented day and night forever and ever and ever and ever. Not a nice place — that is why Jesus paid that penalty on the cross as our perfect sacrifice, and that is what God is offering us: His Son. The only way to get to heaven.

walks, littering and commercial development. The transportation issue touched on several areas, but getting bus service from one location to multi-locations like the Greater Richmond Transit Company (GRTC) provides in Richmond was discussed. It was pointed out that there is already a commuter bus that takes people downtown, but no local service to take riders to shopping centers, medical facilities and other destinations of interest. “We’re not going to resolve any issues here tonight,” Peterson told those in attendance. “We’re just here to put some issues on the table to give me an idea about your concerns.” Deborah Miller said she was concerned about the lack of sidewalks and litter in her neighborhood. “I live close enough to Bell Creek that I could walk there if we had sidewalks,” she said. “There is no place to walk, and I’m certainly not going to walk out in the road to get there.” “I’m also concerned about the amount of litter thrown out in our neighborhood,” Miller added. “When walking around my neighborhood, I carry a can and pick-up stick. It seems like we’re getting more and more trash all of the time, especially beer cans.” Peterson said that sidewalks are usually constructed on Virginia Department of

Transportation rights-of-way and they are responsible for maintenance. When private individuals build sidewalks, usually on their own property, he said the individual, as opposed to VDOT, becomes responsible for maintenance and upkeep. Commercial development, specifically Winding Brook, was discussed. It was noted that the outlet mall that was supposed to open in 2010 had not broken ground yet and the developer was now projecting to start construction sometime in 2012 and open in 2013. It was pointed out that Bass Pro Shops has enjoyed tremendous success there since opening three years ago and a hotel is now open. Construction of the building that will be known as the Shoppes at Winding Brook will be completed in February. It will have several restaurants and other retail shops as tenants, and they should open around June or July. While the I-95 corridor through the county and the Mechanicsville area are strong areas for commercial and business development, Peterson said there are other areas in the county where retaining the rural atmosphere was preferred. When asked if he planned to hold such meeting on a regular basis, Peterson said yes but he didn’t know when the next would be. He said it also would probably be at the library, and he would check with the library staff about scheduling.

You feel like all hope is gone (it will be) nothing matters. You have lost someone you don’t really know, but you don’t want him to be gone. Only Christ will fill that void; only Christ can make you whole. I write this letter to all who will read it. I don;t want anyone to go to hell, and if this letter will help one person to Christ, then it has done its purpose. I mail this letter to Christians that know Christ as Savior.

conceived in the usual manner, via natural biological function, without help nor hindrance from any supernatural source. I am no child of God, I am a child of John and Rosemary, and I’m pretty certain that John wasn’t God. The idea that because the universe (what you like to call “creation,�, biblical term without factual meaning) exists it was therefore “created� is a logical fallacy, not to mention a fantasy. People cling to these fantasies in spite of the ever-growing body of knowledge that rejects them because they lack the intellectual courage to handle the truth – all of their courage is rooted in fantasies, so it can fail them at the most inconvenient times.

would anyone feel the need to bury their head in the sands of a fantasy when reality brings so much grace and wonder? As for value, I have value to many people, but most importantly to myself – if I don’t value myself, I can’t value anybody or anything else and no one else can value me. And all the love I could ever hope to need I get from real people – my children, my family, my lover, my friends. I have no need of an imaginary source of love, especially one so narcissistic as to demand I put him or her before the actual people in my life. As for yours and others prayers, I’m sure that many people pray for my conversion, and I’ve probably been the subject of or inspiration for a sermon or two – nothing terrifies a believer quite so much as someone who publically reminds them

that the emperor has no clothes. So no, prayers to some SantaClaus-for-adults for my sake does nothing for me, but what’s important is that you found your way to feel superior. Oh, and in response to Mr. Melton in the prior week’s edition: While I understand your sentiment, let me remind you that you neither know nor speak for me. I absolutely do, and will continue to, bash religion. It is the single most dangerous force in our world, and will be the destruction of this great country if we allow it.

When she went to The Discovery Channel website, the explanation for Rowe’s show said viewers experience the less than glamorous work that unsung heroes perform each day. “He wanted to do a segment on a mobile veterinarian in Virginia and somehow came up with my name and phone number,� she said. “All I can say is that I met with some of the production people on Monday

(July 11), and he came into town that night. We filmed the segment Tuesday and he flew out Tuesday night after dinner.� During the segment, a goat receives acupuncture. “Before the acupuncture was performed, the goat suffered from arthritis and had trouble walking,� Peace said. “He gets around fine now, even jumps up and down.� She said she hopes she did a good job representing the area. “I’m proud to have been chosen to do the Virginia segment for their show,� Peace said. “I hope I did a good job of representing Mechanicsville and Hanover County.� The name of Peace’s practice is PAWS, Pet Acupuncture and Wellness Service. As a mobile vet, she makes only house calls.

My goal in life is to be a good parent, a good friend, a good employee I can be, and a good person – here, in this life, while I’m able to be those things, because they’re the right and moral thing to do, not because I fear some punishment or crave some blessing in some hypothetical and highly unlikely “next life� or need those things as inducements to make me be a good, moral person. I don’t always succeed, but that marks me as human, and the punishments and rewards of failure and success are all in the here and now, not sometime somewhere mentioned in some book of myth and legend. What brings me joy is the love and laughter of my daughters; a soft spring rain, or the gentle falling of the leaves outside my window; life in all its natural splendor.

Jim Fields/The Local

Del. Chris Peace, left, and County Attorney Sterling E. Rives III discuss an issue following the Hanover County Legislative Agenda meeting held on Friday at the Ashland Library. Rives presented the Board of Supervisors’ items of interest for the 2012 session of the Virginia General Assembly.

Donald McEachin and Walter A. Stosch and Delegates Christopher K. Peace and John A. Cox.

Three specific legislative action items topped Rives’ presentation. One pertained to a request that the appropriate state agency conduct, or coordinate, a study of how to improve the ability of local emergency communication centers to handle high call volumes during public emergencies, through mutual assistance or otherwise. Another item asked that the General Assembly amend Va. Code 2.2-309 to clarify that a family member of a government employee may enter into a contract to supply goods or services to the government agency as long as the employee has no control or influence over the contract. Also, it was requested that a third urban atlarge seat on the Commonwealth Transportation Board be added and filled by a resident of the Richmond-Petersburg area, since most of the time the two urban at-large seats are filled by citizens from the Northern Virginia and Hampton Roads areas. Other anticipated legislation issues discussed included the payment of cash proffers and having them paid at the time of final building inspection and not at the time of occupancy. The legislators also heard that the county wants them to oppose legislation that would expand the categories of students whose parents do not reside in Hanover County for whom Hanover would be mandated to provide a free public education.

Jim Fields/The Local

Del. Chris Peace, left, and Senators Donald McEachin and Ryan McDougle listen during Friday’s meeting with the Hanover County Board of Supervisors about the upcoming session of the Virginia General Assembly.

“Our schools are very good,� Rives said. “You’d be surprised at what some parents try in order to have their children go to school in Hanover County.� Supervisors revealed they are opposed to any state-mandated changes to locally-funded Virginia Retirement System programs. “I think it was important to share our thoughts with the county’s General Assembly delegation so they can have some ideas about what we want them to do,� said County Administrator Cecil R. “Rhu� Harris Jr. “I think we have a game plan now on how to move forward. I think it was important for the new board members to hear that going forward the delegation wants them to put their own stamp on a legislative agenda.� Kelly-Wiecek, who will be representing the

Chickahominy District in the new year, said she learned a lot. “I think if there is one thing I found out this morning it was that the more you think you know about these issues, the less you really know,� she said. “I think it’s important for us to understand the issues with reference to their relationship between local and state government. Meetings like this help you to see all sides of an issue.� Aubrey M. “Bucky� Stanley said he is looking forward to working with the new board members. “I know them and have worked with all of them on various projects,� he said. “I think the returning board members and new members will be able to work together for Hanover County. I believe it will be a conservative board, maybe even more conservative than the current one.�

Habitat helps famly get a new home for the holidays Keisha Smithers was 16 years old when she began volunteering at Hanover Habitat for Humanity. She worked every Saturday and still remembers how to install windows. The home she worked on was very special: It was for her and her mother. At the time, Keisha and her mom had been living in a house with no running water for more than six years. Moving into their new Habitat home was like a dream come. In particular, Keisha said their new home finally made her feel comfortable enough to invite friends over to spend the night. When Keisha was 21, she began working at The Hanover Adult Center, a day support program for adults with intellectual disabilities. She has been employed there for 10 years and is currently a coordinator for the Linking Lives Program. While Keisha’s work is very rewarding, she is a single mother with two small children and her salary is not sufficient to qualify her for a conventional home loan. That’s when Hanover Habitat for Humanity entered into Keisha’s life for the second time. After reading a newspaper article about some recent Hanover Habitat Partner Families and recalling that her own mother was able to afford a Habitat home, Keisha decided to apply for the program. She’s been pleasantly surprised at how quickly the process has gone.

Volunteers, family members, community leaders and new neighbors all cheered when one of the smallest members of the Smithers family helped his mom cut the ribbon to their new home.

Connie Alexander, Hanover Habitat’s Family Services coordinator said, “Keisha’s application process was shorter than most due to her diligence in maintaining good credit. For example, she has some medical bills that are not completely covered by her health insurance. Keisha calls the doctor or hospital as soon as she gets these bills and makes arrangements to pay them a specified amount every month. She also sets a goal for herself to exceed the amount of this payment so that she can pay the debt off faster. Her responsible nature, work ethic, and integrity made her an ideal Partner Family.� Keisha’s children attend a daycare center

announcing parade participants as they neared the grandstand area on Mechanicsville Turnpike. Ward recognized the Rotary and Ruritan clubs for their work in organizing and staging the parade. He also pointed out the participation of the 2011 Hanover Christmas Mother, Anne Geddy Cross, as well as the Ruritans’ role in the annual fundraising program. As the Color Guard of Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 9808 of Mechanicsville approached, Ward told the crowd to “keep our veterans in mind this Christmas season.� His remarks were met with applause and cheers.

right across the street from their new home. “They have a great view from the playground of our home and have gotten to see it being built from the ground up,� she said. “They have also helped out by doing small chores on the worksite.� Keisha said she appreciates all the volunteers that she’s worked with on the construction of her home. “Everyone was so nice, and I enjoyed getting to meet new people who gave their time to help give me a hand up.� Keisha’s home was dedicated on Nov. 18 and is the 38th home that Hanover Habitat has built in partnership with the community.

Col. David R. Hines, Hanover County sheriff, was thanked by Ward “for keeping Hanover County safe� as his vehicle made its way along the parade route. “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town� filled the air, thanks to the Atlee High School Marching Raiders. A strong presence of future military personnel marched in the parade. Students in the JROTC programs at Lee-Davis and Atlee high schools were among them. Brandy Kieper, Bella Moncure and Jillian Moncure, Miss Mechanicsville, Junior Miss Mechanicsville and Little Miss Mechanicsville, respectively, waved to the crowd as

they made their way through the parade. Students at Jessica Morgan’s School of Dance performed “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree� as they continued along the route. “The Grinch� ran past by a float carrying members of the Hanover Ruritan Club. Doing flips and cartwheels in the street were students at Aerial East Gymnastics. Elected officials who took part included Deborah Winans, Ed Via and Elton Wade, Hanover County Board of Supervisors, and Del. Chris Peace. At the end of the parade, a tree lighting ceremony was held at the Windmill Branch of EVB.

Stallions knock Hanover from playoffs Hawks couldn’t recover from scoreless first half By Eric Kolenich Media General News Services LORTON — The Hanover student section huddled together against the cold air, silently watching the South County Stallions line up in victory formation and take a knee. The seconds ticked off the clock, and then it was over. South County jumped out to a big lead, then withstood the Hawks’ comeback attempt to defeat Hanover 38-22 Saturday night in the Division 5 state semifinals. The Stallions will face Phoebus on Saturday in Charlottesville for the state championship. After losing their first three games, the Stallions have won 11 in a row. Saturday night’s 16-point margin was the closest any team has come to knocking off South County in four playoff games. By the end of the first half, Hanover trailed 24-0. The Stallions had dominated both sides of the ball, out-gaining the Hawks 178-64. In the second half, Hanover finally got its offense in gear as L.J. Jones (53 rushing yards) scored three touchdowns. “We knew our back was

The six foot tall Ferguson repeatedly out-leapt the smaller Hawk defenders to finish the night with five catches for 87 yards and three touchdowns. Above: Hanover’s Sam Rogers (10) keeps a close eye on South County’s Marcus Thomas (6) and Nick Hicks (1) as he races down field to set up Hanover’s first score of the game.

against the wall, and we had nothing to lose,” Hanover senior Xavier Crocker said. “We just threw as many punches as we could.” But the Hawks never found a way to stop the Stallions’ resilient offense. Even if they were stopped on first down, and again on second down, they found a way to keep their feet moving. South County converted a stunning 10 of 16 thirddown attempts. In the second quarter, with a 14-0 lead, the Stallions opened up the playbook. On third and 13, Shane Foley completed a double reverse pass to Michael

Ferguson for 22 yards. Three plays later, on third and 12, Jake Josephs took the handoff and threw it 11 yards to Ferguson for South County’s third touchdown of the night. Ferguson finished with five catches for 87 yards and three scores. Foley completed 12 of 16 passes for 192 yards. Foley injured his right knee late in the game, but Stallions coach Gerry Pannoni said he thinks Foley will be fine for the championship game. And while South County accumulated 359 yards of total offense, Hanover made plenty of mistakes to help the Stallions

along. “That’s not typical for us,” Hanover coach Josh Just said. “We’re a pretty disciplined team. But they made us pay for our mistakes.” Not only did Hanover fumble the ball three times, losing all three, but the Hawks were set back 100 yards by penalties. Sam Rogers, who dislocated his right elbow seven weeks ago, finished with five catches for 107 yards. He missed two weeks then moved from quarterback to receiver upon his return. His backup, Andrew Knizner, completed 11 of 20 passes for 200 yards.

“We had a great year,” Crocker said. “Andrew Knizner did a great job. I’m so proud of him. We came together as a family.”

Yellow Jackets narrowly split ODAC openers R-MC falls to #5 Marlins by three, beats EMU at buzzer Contributed reports

On Saturday, RandolphMacon senior guard Calvin Croskey drained an off balance three-pointer as time expired to propel the Yellow Jackets to an 87-86 home win over ODAC rival Eastern Mennonite. It was Croskey’s eighth and final trifecta of the day as he scored a career-high 30 points in the win. The win capped off a big week for R-MC (5-2 / 1-1 ODAC) after narrowly falling at #5 Virginia Wesleyan 63-60 on Wednesday. Against EMU, R-MC found

itself down 48-37 at the half, after the Royals shot a sizzling 58.9 percent from the floor in the first period. EMU connected on 10 of their first 17 shots, taking a 34-24 lead with just over six minutes to play. A jumper by Adam Burroughs pushed Eastern Mennonite’s advantage to 4236 before Croskey made a three pointer on R-MC’s final possession to send the teams to the intermission with EMU up 48-37. Eastern Mennonite (2-4 / 1-2 ODAC) extended its lead to 50-37 on the first possession of the second half. RandolphMacon then scored 12 of the next 17 points, cutting its deficit to 55-49 when Jamie Robinson knocked down a jumper with 14 minutes to play in the game. Trailing 56-49, R-MC went on an 11-5 run, tying the game

on a Croskey three with under 10 minutes to go. The game featured five ties and 10 lead changes over the remainder of the half with an Andrew Thorne bucket putting EMU up 85-84 with 12 seconds on the clock. A turnover on R-MC’s next possession and a subsequent foul sent the Royals to the line. R.J. Sims made one-oftwo free-throws to put Eastern Mennonite ahead 86-84 with eight second to play. R-MC took the ball out with Marcus Badger dribbling up the court before giving it to Croskey who worked to get a clean look and connected on the three-pointer to send RMC to the win. The Yellow Jackets got 16 points from Andre Simon, 15 points from Lamar Giggetts, while Adam Desgain finished with 14 in the win. R-MC

finished the game shooting 54.4% on 31-of-57 from the floor. EMU shot 26-of-49 from floor and were aided by a 27-of-38 performance from the free-throw line. Sims led five players in double-digits with 20. David Falk came off the bench to add 16 for the Royals. On Wednesday evening at the Batten Center, RandolphMacon battled #5 Virginia Wesleyan the entire game before dropping a 63-60 decision. The Yellow Jackets fell to 4-2 overall, 0-1 in league play, while the Marlins improved to 3-1, 1-0 in the ODAC. Croskey led the three Jackets in double-figures, scoring 19 points on 3-of-6 shooting from behind the arc. Giggetts added 15 points and eight rebounds and Adam

Desgain chipped in 10 markers. After Giggetts scored the first bucket of the ballgame, R-MC fell behind, but never let things get away for the rest of the first half. The Marlins led by as many as 12 before the Yellow Jackets ended the half on a 10-4 run to enter the intermission down 36-30. Randolph-Macon battled its way back at the start of the second half, taking their second lead of the game, 41-40 four minutes in. Both teams exchanged leads over the next nine minutes before Croskey poured in five quick points to take a 55-52 advantage. However, Virginia Wesleyan ended the game on an 115 run, scoring the final five points of the contest. VWC broke a 60-60 tie with under two minutes remaining on a free throw by

Donald Vaughn to make it 61-60. The Marlins then took a three point lead to give the final score off a jumper by Chris Astorga. R-MC just missed on several opportunities in the final minute. Vaughn paced the Marlins with 16 points and nine boards, while Astorga was second on the host team in scoring with 13. Simon chipped in seven points and eight rebounds for Randolph-Macon. The game was evenly played throughout. Both teams shot 40.7% from the floor, while the Marlins made three more free throws than the Yellow Jackets. VWC outrebounded R-MC 38-35. Randolph-Macon will be back in ODAC action on Wednesday when it hosts Lynchburg at 7 p.m.

Randolph-Macon women fall to 1-2 in ODAC Yellow Jackets down Lynchburg, fall to W&L Contributed reports

The Randolph-Macon women’s basketball team split a pair of ODAC contests last week and fell to 1-2 in league play. On Tuesday night the Yellow Jackets picked up an 83-55 home win over Lynchburg (05, 0-2). On Saturday R-MC (24, 1-2) fell 72-63 at Washington and Lee (2-3, 1-1). Facing Lynchburg, Taylor Wieczorek led four Yellow Jackets in double figures, with 26 points and nine boards. Freshman Sarah Parsons had another stellar evening for RMC with 19 points and four

boards, while Maggie Roy and Molly Brown chipped in with 10 points each. Randolph-Macon’s senior class stepped up early in the game, scoring the first 10 points of the contest to take a 10-7 lead, six minutes into play. R-MC pushed its advantage to 14-7 before Lynchburg put together a 9-2 run to even the score midway through the first. Both teams battled back and forth over the next seven minutes, with the lead changing hands four times before the Yellow Jackets ended the half on a 6-2 run to take a 29-26 advantage into the intermission. Seeing her first action of the season, sophomore Lindsey Sharman led the charge for RMC scoring four straight points and grabbing two rebounds down the stretch. Wieczorek

paced the home team with 12 points and six boards in the first half. The Yellow Jackets opened the second half on a 25-9 run, capped by a Parsons jumper to take a 54-35 advantage. The run was sparked by Wieczorek who scored the first six points of the period. R-MC continued to put pressure on the ball and push the tempo, leading by as many as 25 after five straight points by Roy. Shannon Allan paced LC with 16 points and seven boards, while Katie Crump chipped in 13 points and six rebounds. The Yellow Jackets used pressure defense to pick up the win, forcing 31 turnovers in the contest. The women also shot a scorching 54% from the field in the second half, 46% or the game and outscored

the Hornets 54-29 in the final period. On Saturday at W&L, Wieczorek’s jumper gave Randolph-Macon an early 30 lead but the Generals put together a 19-7 run to pull in front 19-10. The Yellow Jackets battled back, scoring the next nine points of the contest to tie the game at 19 off a conventional three point play by Roy with seven minutes remaining. W&L then regained the lead, scoring five straight points over the next two minutes. The Generals led by as many as seven before a Parsons jumper cut it to five, 32-27 as time expired in the first stanza. Washington and Lee opened the second half on an 8-2 run over the opening three minutes to gain the largest lead of the contest, 40-29.

Trailing 53-46 with eight minutes to play, R-MC clawed its way back into the game with an 11-4 spurt over the next three minutes to tie the game at 57 off a Wieczorek jump shot. W&L responded, as Katy Wilson scored five quick points to give the Generals a three point advantage. The Generals connected on 8-of-10 from the charity stripe in the closing minutes to seal the win. Parsons led all scorers on the day posting 24 points, five rebounds, three assists, and three steals. The freshman from Glen Allen, Va. is averaging better than 22 points per contest over her last three games. Wieczorek recorded her first double-double of the season, finishing with 15 points and 16 rebounds. Jillian Asay and Roy chipped in on the defensive side of the ball,

The Mechanicsville Local

picking up three steals each. Meg Ingram led four scorers in double-figures for the Generals, totaling 23 points and seven rebounds. Becca Bolton added a double-double of 17 markers and 11 boards. Washington and Lee out rebounded Randolph-Macon, 31-24 on the afternoon. The Yellow Jackets held a 16-12 edge on the offensive glass and forced 17 turnovers. R-MC shot just 34.5% from the field, but hit a scorching 54.5% (611) from behind the arc. W&L shot 41.7% from the field and hit 15-of-19 free throws in the game.| Randolph-Macon returns to action Tuesday, Dec. 6 as they play host to Randolph. Tip-off is scheduled for a 7 p.m. start. The Yellow Jackets then do not play at home again until Jan. 7.

Patrick Henry rolls past Raiders 81-54 Patriots pressure too much for Atlee By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Patrick Henry utilized size, experience and defensive pressure to put four players in double-figures and hand Atlee a season opening loss 81-54 on Thursday night in Ashland. First year PH head coach Randy Anderson appears to have infused the Patriots with his high key personality and shook off a slow start to pressure Atlee into turnovers and bad shots. The Patriots (1-1) came into the contest holding the upper hand in height and court time but early on it looked as if Atlee (0-1) was poised to pull off the upset. The Raiders gave up size at every position and lacking team practice time due to the extended football season. They were also short-handed due to a hand injury to starting guard Ruben Rucker. But despite all the obstacles, Atlee held a 7-2 lead over three minutes into the contest and looked to be in control as the smaller Raiders were out-rebounding the much bigger Patriot team. Patrick Henry senior guard Logan Dandridge said his taller teammates were repeatedly being caught out of position. “Our big men need to do a better job of getting in front on defense,” he said. “We have size that’s way bigger than them. We just needed them to put bodies on their bigs and we got the rebounds a lot better.” His coach agreed. “It looked like they had a lot of guards in,” Anderson said. “Pretty much the whole five could play guard positions. We had some bigs in and that causes a little mismatch.” With the Raiders holding

the upper hand early Anderson called a timeout to refocus his team. “I told them if we don’t do anything else right we’ve got to play defense,” he said. “Whenever the offense is going slow, let the offense create the defense.” Coming out of the break Patrick Henry came to life, pressuring Atlee into turnovers which created a 20-5 run for the Patriots to seize control of the contest. “Once we got going and got that active hands out and starting using our length to our advantage and hustle, everything came to another level,” Anderson said. “That’s what we’re coming out to do. We’re going to come out aggressive and try to get a lot of turnovers and steals.” Kahlil Mock (11 points, 8 rebounds, 3 steals, 3 assists) and Dandridge (12 points) led the way early. The two scored the first seven PH points of the game to tie the contest a little over a minute out of the time-

out. DeeJay Jackson then gave the Patriots the lead 9-7 on an eight foot jumper and PH never trailed again. A jumper from Atlee’s Brian Miller (18 points) retied the contest but PH’s A.J. Jackson (10 points) scored four straight points. Miller gave the Raiders a highlight moment when he heaved in a three at the buzzer to pull the Raiders within one, 13-12 at the end of the first. PH turned up the defensive pressure another notch in the second quarter and Raymon Minor (18 points) began to find his shooting touch. “He started off a little slow this season but he kind of found his rhythm,” Anderson said. Minor opened the second fouled on a dunk for a three point play. Minor and Sevon Morris then hit back to back three pointers followed by jumpers from Minor and Mock to cap a 13-0 run and give the home team a 26-12 lead a min-

ute and a half into the second. Morris finished the night by connecting on three 3-pointers and added 11 points for the Patriots. Jacob Hurd answered with a Raider three and Quincy Randolph connected on a pair of free throws to momentarily stop the run, but Dandridge drilled PH’s a three then scored on a layup for a 31-17 lead with two minutes left in the half. Anderson feels that Logan and twin brother Tyler Dandridge, who transferred from Lee-Davis, have made a smooth transition onto the Patriots’ squad. “From day one they came in they understood who we had returning and they wanted to do was come in and work hard and just fit in wherever they could fit in,” Anderson said. Coming out of the locker room, PH’s defense limited Atlee to four points in the first five minutes of the third. Meanwhile Minor and the Jacksons continued to score to

give the Patriots a 63-37 lead heading into the final period. Minor scored six of Patrick Henry’s first eight points in the fourth for a 71-42 lead and Anderson started substituting. In a substitute roll, William Hollman (7 points) extended the Patriots lead to 79-46 by scoring five straight points after entering the game. For the Patriots, it was good to get on the winning path after falling to Deep Run by 15 in their season opener two days earlier. “After we got our defense straight, it was a little hard to adjust to the tempo but it was a different game from last week,” Dandridge said. “We picked up pretty well in the second half.” Along with Miller, guard Kevin Drayton carried Atlee on offense by driving to the basket to score 13 points. Joe Pulisic provided body-sacrificing defense for the Raiders but was held scoreless. On Friday night, Atlee fell to 0-2 with a 77-38 home loss to Deep Run.

C-feds take King William Tournament Lee-Davis off to 3-0 start as district slate looms By Dave Lawrence For The Mechanicsville Local In his first year as head coach of the Lee-Davis boys’ basketball team, Dave Ellington wanted to teach the Confederates how to win. Last week, the Confederates got off to a good start by defeating Maggie Walker then sweep-

ing their two games in the King William tip-off tournament to jump out to a 3-0 record. In the tournament, three players, Cedric Holley, Abdiel Bolden and Ladarien Autry scored in double figures to lead Lee-Davis past host King William 54-46 Friday. Bolden and Jalen Harvey led the Confederates as they knocked off King & Queen 53-35 Saturday. Bolden scored 16 points both days. Autry added 13 points and Holley added 11 against King William.

The 12U Mechanicsville Magic closed their 2011 season with an impressive league championship going 5-1 for the weekend playing in the 13U division. The offense was led by Nathan Evans and Hunter Brooks who combined for 17 hits, of which seven were for extra bases. Cole Schlothauer, Ned Anthony, Orion Riccardi and Hunter Parker each accounted for at least four hits. Preston Eacho and Josh Durbin combined for 12 Runs scored. The defense was led by Jacob Smither and Jake Durbin who each had several really nice plays at the corners in the

added 10 points Saturday. Despite the wins, the Confederates have a lot to work on, with the beginning of district play this week. “We have been playing very sloppy,” Ellington said Saturday. “I thought we played hard, but we didn’t shoot the ball very well tonight. ... It’s been a pattern, we get a lead, seem to make some mistakes – turnovers have been an issue for us. We turn the ball over, don’t shoot as well, keep the teams hanging around. But we were able to close it out down the stretch.” With Capital District play beginning this week against Highland Springs and Hanover, the Confederates need to really focus on ball control. “I’m just never happy with the way we take care of the ball,” Ellington said. “That’s mainly just what I’m unhappy with. We’ve got a team that really hustles and goes at it, but we need to learn when to slow things down and when to speed it up.” The Royal Tigers were too scrappy to be put away easily

Saturday, but the Confederates stifled a late rally and steadily increased their lead in the final minutes. King & Queen, like LeeDavis, has a new head coach – in this case Howard Brown. The coach isn’t all that is new for the Royal Tigers, and adjusting poses problems for Brown’s inexperienced team. “We played, not great, but didn’t play bad considering a new coach, new system. Basically we’ve got one experienced player from last year,” Brown said. “But we’re coming along. … We’re getting better every game.” King & Queen was led by Troy Washington with 15 points and Josiah Stubbs with 10. The Confederates had a much tougher time against King William on Friday. The Cavaliers closed to within two points with less than four minutes left in the game. But the Lee-Davis’ size advantage – particularly Bolden – was too much to overcome. “We had no answer for him,”

King William coach Joe Harper. “As long as we could chuck him off the box or keep him outside his comfort range, we were fine.” On inbounds plays, however, Bolden was too difficult to contain – as the Cavaliers found out in the final minutes when they trailed by two points. “They threw an inbounds pass to him,” Harper said. “He just turned and went over our post, and we fouled him. That was the difference, I felt. “If we could have chucked him, or if we could have got him a little further out, that left-handed hook, he wouldn’t have gone in because he would have been a little bit out his comfort range. Once he got in his box, there was nothing we could have done with him but watch him.” Freeman McPhearson led the Cavaliers with 12 points, followed by D.J. Johnson with 11. Despite the early success so far, the meetings with their evertough Capital District competi-

tors will reveal what kind of team the Confederates are. “We’ll take 3-0,” Ellington said. “We’re coming up on a big game on Tuesday.

Playoff tears will fuel the fires of 2012 season By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Tears ran down the cheeks of players and coaches alike as the Hanover Hawks huddled for the final time this season near the north end zone of South County’s football field. The team reflected on another outstanding season while the dust had yet to settle on the stinging disappointment of a 38-22 state semifinal loss to the Stallions. “I’m proud of our effort,” said head coach Josh Just. “I’m proud of how tough they showed me they are each and every day. Extremely proud of this group. I’m going to miss them a lot.” Burnt by big plays, trick plays and calls not going their way, the Hawks fell behind South County 24-0 at halftime. But given every opportunity to throw in the towel Hanover did not give up. “It’s tough to bounce back after giving those plays up but I thought our kids kept fighting,” Just said. In the second half the Hawks started scoring, slowed, but could not stop the Stallions big play offense. Yet, after all was said and done, Hanover did not feel so much as if they had lost the game, but simply ran out of time to keep their season alive. “We fought back tonight,” said quarterback Andrew Knizner. “One more quarter, a couple more minutes, we might have pulled this one out. You never know.” Fighting back was nothing new for Hanover. The Hawks faced a huge obstacle on Oct. 14 when starting quarterback Sam Rogers went out with a dislocated elbow. Even though it was a certainty he would not return to the pocket this season, the team kept on fighting behind Knizner. No one doubted that the Hawks could bounce back to win a regional title and play for a state championship. “I thought Andrew Knizner’s going to be pretty good,” Just

42

said. “So, I thought we could do this.” “I never doubted our team. I never doubted myself,” Knizner said. “I knew we were going to fight back and do exactly what we did.” Likewise, Rogers fought to get back on the playing field, only missing three games before returning as wide receiver, running back, linebacker and kick returner. Facing South County, Rogers played on virtually every down of the ball game. But Rogers was only a microcosm of the Hawks’ team character. Battling back against the huge Stallion deficit was never a question. “They’re fighters and they fought the whole time,” Just said. “They weren’t just going to turn over and quit. That’s not them. They won’t do that in life. They weren’t going to do that today.” As such, it is the special character of this particular team that Just feels he will miss most. From never being late for practice, to hard work in the off season, to absorbing game plans, as a team, the Hawks give it their all. “You don’t have many kids that buy in like that and do it for each other so I’m just proud of them,” he said. “That just shows the character we have on our team,” Knizner said. “Our guys are so tight and we’re like a family. We play every done, every snap for each other.” Though they never reached the state championship game, Hanover seniors such as Xavier Crocker, Matt Palmen, Henry Reeves, Aaron Hall, Patrick Sorey and James Jones among so many others can leave with their heads held high knowing they accomplished what few high school football players have done. Over the past four years, Hanover has played in 50 games, coming away with 38 wins, two Central Region Division 5 titles and one Capital District cham-

pionship. In the first five years of existence, Hanover won a total of 16 games. Likewise the group finished their careers of an average ranking of 39th among all levels of football in the state of Virginia and 11th among Division 5 schools compared to an average of 151st and 40th in the previous five years. “Not many kids get to play as many football games as those kids did,” Just said. “A lot of kids don’t get that opportunity and I think they appreciate it and they fought like they appreciate it.” “It’s outstanding what they’ve done for this program,” Knizner said of the senior class. “What they’ve put in. All the time and effort and everything. I just wish we could have extended the season just one more game to the state championship just to help those guys out. I really wish we could have done that.” But now the focus turns to next season where the Hawks know they have the talent to maintain their stranglehold

on the region. If anything, the adversity opened doors for Hanover to be even better in 2012 with the return of team leaders such as Rogers, Knizner, Usman Mahmood, LJ Jones, Justin Peebles, Donte Haynesworth, David Cryster and Stu Mains among others. The last time Hanover was left teary-eyed after a state semifinal loss they fought back to go undefeated in the regular season the following year. Knizner sees the same possibility for the Hawks in 2012. “We’re hungry for it now,” he said. “We as hungry as ever now. All off season we’re going to push ourselves until we can’t go any further and come out next year and hopefully we’ll just run right through it.” Standing on the field where the state semifinal was played Knizner made a prediction. “We’ll be here next year and hopefully we’ll have a rematch,” he said. “That would be awesome.”
