Bass Pro Shops: ‘three really good years’ By Jim Fields jfields@mechlocal.com (Editor’s note: A three-part series on economic development concludes today, with the success of Bass Pro Shops.) Since Bass Pro Shops opened its doors in the Winding Brook development near Ashland, general manager Greg Bulkley said the store has enjoyed “three really good years.” “While a lot of people think of us as a store for hunters and fishermen, we look at ourselves as a family store. We have some-

thing for everyone, including children here.” When the store opened, it was supposed to be one of the anchors in the commercial development, which also was going to feature a 60-store BULKLEY outlet mall. It was scheduled to open in 2010, but, due to the economy, construction has yet to begin.

Representatives of Holladay Properties recently announced that they expect to break ground on the outlet mall sometime in 2012 and hope to have it open in 2013. “It’s a disappointment that more of Winding Brook hasn’t been finished,” Bulkley said. “When you are in a location with something like the proposed outlet mall across the street, you feed off one another. We have customers that also would go there and they have customers Jim Fields/The Local who would also stop by our store.” Bass Pro Shops has experienced “three really good years” see BASS, pg. 4 

since opening in the developing Winding Brook area near Ashland.

Vultures found near water tower

“Providing quality veterinary care in the convenience of your home”

A small flock of vultures was spotted on Tuesday, Dec. 20, in Mechanicsville, and they might have left the area as fast as they arrived. Five were seen perched in two trees on Lee Avenue, while a solitary black figure was high atop the water tower near the intersection of Lee and Jackson. “We have them all over the county,” Sgt. Kevin Kilgore, chief of Hanover County Animal Control, said. “We have two species around here, the black buzzard and turkey buzzards.

The black variety is the most aggressive. They’ll eat anything, dead or alive.” Kilgore said the Town of Ashland had a problem with them several years ago, and the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries had to get involved. “They are federally protected animals,” he said. “They used pyrotechnics to get rid of them. It took several weeks to scare them off.” The birds have a keen sense of smell and generally roost where they smell what might be a source of food.

She was named the 12th superintendent of the division and became the first female and African-American to hold the top spot in the county’s education system. She had been serving as assistant superintendent of Instructional Leadership. When she assumed the superintendent’s office on July 1, her salary was listed at $162,000. Her term runs through June 30. 2015. Wet weather in the days before the 2011 Hanover Tomato Festival did not deter 38,000 people from filling Pole Green Park on Saturday, July 9.

Hanover County residents were rocked twice in the same week in August.

OPINION | The Local Views From the editor

What happened to respect for life? An admitted true crime reader and viewer (and there are so many newspaper, magazine and television accounts available), the conversation at home has been repeated often: Is there no longer any respect for life? Based on the ever-increasing number of crimes that take lives, the answer apparently is no. Without any intention of spotlighting any previous or recent incidents, we live in a society — and this is on a nationwide scale — where human life appears disposable in the eyes of some. Do we not have adequate deterrents in place so that the taking of a life isn’t a consideration? Do you ever wonder if some of the more severe punishments of the past merit a return? Let’s just call this a “thinking out loud” scenario. It is incredibly alarming that someone may die at the hands of another “for the thrill of it.” Not that there is any — and I can’t emphasize that enough — reason to kill another human being. It’s incomprehensible on so many levels. Who is to blame? What can we do to prevent the horrific acts we hear of on a near daily basis? Years ago, a friend who was in law enforcement traveled to an Asian country that doles out some serious punishment for crimes. Where is that line drawn between humane and barbaric? Most importantly, do we remember the victim(s)? Yes, this is a different direction as we get ready to welcome a new year. It’s obvious we need to return to civilized values. What do you think?

Etc. ☞ There’s only one more thing to say as we prepare to bid adieu to 2011: Happy New Year! If you’re out and about Saturday night, be careful. Melody Kinser

LETTERS | Reader Views

Occupy’s goal is to destroy country’s entrepreneurship “Do you hear me now?” So ends the letter submitted to this publication by Hubert Hawkins, supporting the Occupy movement that is trashing cities in this country, advocating the destruction of private business and costing taxpayers millions of dollars. A cursory examination of this brainless Occupy Wall Street menagerie of Marxist, Socialist and capitalism would reveal its main thrust; to destroy the entrepreneurship of this country, the American work ethic and our freedom, among many other worthy American traditions of this country. The main thrust of OWS is that these people believe that the working class, the middle class, owe them part of the money that by hard work, they have earned. The lamebrained college students, who have taken out loans, are

really surprised that the six-figure job they had envisioned hasn’t materialized immediately after they graduated. What they do is default on the loan and guess who ends up paying it back? Taxpayers. Millions, if not billions of dollars, see LETTERS, pg. 8

are lost. They sponge off their families or friends and will not even try to find work. The OWS crowd wants those with jobs to share their money with them so there will be equality among everyone. Mr. Hawkins also rips the rich, parroting Obama. One really has to ask himself: “Why would Obama trash the rich? Doesn’t he receive millions and millions of dollars from the rich

and corporations? Isn’t he rich? Isn’t everyone in his administration very wealthy? Why does Obama hate the rich?” From the Huffington Post, a liberal rag: The 10 percent of households with the highest incomes pay more than half of all federal taxes. They pay more than 70 percent of federal income taxes, according to the Congressional Budget Office. This year, households making more than $1 million will pay an average of 29.1 percent of their income in federal taxes,

including income taxes, payroll taxes and other taxes, according to the Tax Policy Center, a Washington think tank. Households making between $50,000 and $75,000 will pay an average of 15 percent of their income in federal taxes. Lower income households will pay less. For example, households making between $40,000 and $50,000 will pay an average of 12.5 percent of their income in federal taxes. Households making between $20,000 and $30,000 will pay 5.7 percent. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner was pressed at a White House briefing on the number of millionaires who pay taxes at a lower rate than middle income families. He demurred, saying that people who make most of their money in wages pay taxes at a higher rate, while those who get most of their income from investments pay at lower rates. “So it really depends on what is your profession, where’s the source of your income, what’s the specific circumstances you

face, the averages won’t really capture that,” Geithner said. And these are just federal taxes! Mr. Hawkins’ desire and the OWS crowd is to have those who have worked hard and succeeded to contribute to their OWS success and motivation to be successful. But, they don’t want to succeed. I would wager that if Mr. Hawkins and OWSers that think like him were in the category of rich, or one percent, they would be screaming to the highest ills against a higher tax on their incomes. Which is Obama’s primary goal. I also wonder if Mr. Hawkins is employed. If so, doesn’t he realize that he is accepting his salary from a business that he wishes to eradicate? After all, the owner is in the one percent bracket. This is one of the methods of Socialism; class envy, unions, strikes and warfare. These goals are straight from Marxism. One of its beliefs is that capitalism suppresses the working class and deprives them of wealth. They, therefore, want the destruction

of capitalism, a classless society and wealth distribution equally to all. However, this never happens. Hitler had this goal and you remember the outcome. Castro has spent 30 years promoting it. Who wants to live in Cuba? None of the OWS ilk want to go and I’m almost sure Mr. Hawkins wouldn’t want to live there. Bear in mind, folks, purveyors of Marxism and Socialism never give up their cause. They have America, its ideals, its history, its work ethic, its military, its greatness. They will seek any means to destroy our country. Obama is their leader. There are 48 million of them on welfare that buy into this belief without question. It is way past time for patriots to awaken to this great threat to our freedom. M.W. Owens King William

letter directed at me in the Dec. 7 edition: Your description of faith errs in a couple of ways. First, your definition of the word “faith” is incomplete – faith is not just believing in something, it is believing in something without having evidence to back up that belief. Then you lump together the concept of religious faith with many different things that have nothing to do with beliefwithout-evidence, and try to say they are the same. Christian apologists love this argument, but it is completely invalid, because invariably the examples they choose have nothing to do with faith. All of the non-religious examples you note do not come from faith, they come from prior experience – for example, “having faith” that a chair will hold you has nothing to do with faith, for it comes not from belief without evidence but from the evidence of having sat in them previously. Most animals (includResponding to Mr. Agostino’s ing humans) are born with an instinctive fear of falling; a baby will not use a bridge over an opening until he is shown that the bridge is safe or is induced to take the risk by other means, and only after having experienced that the bridge is safe will he then use that bridge without further inducement. We absorb these experiences and lessons as we grow at a level beyond reasoning, so we sometimes consider them “faith-based” because we long ago forgot the specific learning experience that taught them to us. But I bet you can still remember a time you sat on something you trusted to hold your weight and it collapsed beneath you/ Religious faith, on the other hand, is absolutely a belief without evidence. It starts because someone you trust – parent, friend, preacher, etc. – coerces you into believing in his or her fantasy, and once that belief takes root, everything becomes

Tuesday to discuss any possible motive in the case, although Clark’s friends said his Christian rap created some animosity with Robertson and two alleged accomplices, whose music had a much more violent core. Clark apparently hung out with Robertson and two other defendants because they had recording equipment he liked to use. A 17-year-old is charged with being an accessory after the fact, as is another 18-year-old, Michael Thompson of the 6300 block of Earl Road. Thompson and the other youth were released on

bond. Clark’s body was found down a gravel lane near a home where the shooting occurred in the 6400 block of Lark Way, which is just south of Mechanicsville Turnpike and Lee-Davis High School. The home is where Robertson lives. Visitation for Clark was held Thursday evening at Life Church on Atlee Road, which had become a focal point of the young man’s life and where he sometimes performed, his family said. Clark leaves two brothers and two sisters as well as his mother, Patricia, a nurse. A funeral was Friday morning. About 500 people showed up for a vigil Monday night at the

On Dec. 20, Trice stressed that investigators were still trying to confirm statements made to police and establish a timeline of events leading to Clark’s death. Trice declined to discuss what actions the two accessories may have taken after the shooting. Investigators obtained a 9mm firearm with a holster at the home where the shooting occurred, as well as assorted pieces of clothing, a mop, carpet cleaner and a section of carpeting, according to the search warrant.

Community joins in welcoming injured teen home By Jim Fields jfields@mechlocal.com Cole Sydnor came home on Dec. 20 to a life he never imagined. The next day, he was welcomed by a filled auditorium of family, friends, classmates and community supporters at Atlee High School, where he is a student. On Aug 11, Cole’s life changed forever when he hit his head on a submerged rock

while diving into the James River, suffering a head gash and a fractured C5 vertebrae in his spine, leaving him paralyzed from the chest down. He spent 11 days in ICU at VCU Health System before being moved to Atlanta to the Shepherd Center, a rehabilitation hospital for spinal cord and brain injuries. The last leg of his trip home came last Wednesday when about 600 people gathered at Atlee High

to welcome him back. As he maneuvered his wheelchair across the stage to address the crowd, the only word that he could say was “Wow.” In addressing the audience, he said, “You guys are driving my recovery. I want to make you proud.”

Cole will be a junior at Atlee High when he returns as a parttime student next semester. He also will receive some homebound instruction. “I can’t wait to be a Raider again,” he said. Someone in the crowd responded, “You always were.”

Kelly said. “We have so many people to thank for all they did for us while we were away: family, neighbors and friends — it’s just been amazing. They oversaw renovations of our home and conducted fundraisers to help pay for Cole’s recovery.” Two of the first people to visit Cole upon his return were his paternal grandparents, Anne and Kim Sydnor. “It was good to see him and I know he’s happy to be home,” his grandfather said. “He has his good and bad days, but I believe that the day will come when Cole will be fully independent. I really believe he will.” One of the next stages of recovery for the 16-year-old will take place in July when he returns to the Shepherd Center for surgery that will allow him to use his triceps and grab

Local dealer attends Kubota meeting; new products unveiled Representatives from Cavalier International Inc. of Ashland recently attended Kubota Tractor Corporation’s 2011 National Dealer Meeting in San Antonio, Texas, and had the chance to get an exclusive look at the latest Kubota product introductions and innovations across all lines of Kubota tractors, construction equipment, utility vehicles, and lawn and garden equipment. More than 1,000 Kubota

dealers from across the country convened to receive a first look at the new product enhancements, featuring Kubota’s new M135GX MSeries ag and utility tractor that includes Kubota’s roomiest tractor cab ever. Kubota’s “Growing into the Future Together” theme recognized the company’s dealers for their contributions to the company and their involvement with its overall growth and success.

Specialty Coating wraps up acquisition Barricade Building Products, a division of Specialty Coating & Laminating LLC of Doswell, completed the acquisition of Berry Plastics’ housewrap division on Nov. 1. The company expects to add 15 to 20 new jobs by March 2012, and anticipates that the building products division will expand significantly in the future with the addition of new products for their customers. SC&L was formed in 2010 by local investment banking firm Smither & Company Capital Markets and several key executives, including president

& CEO Geoff Baldwin, CFO Bill Berry and vice president of Operations Rick Ganzert, to acquire the 220,000-square-foot production facility and 18 acres that had been slated for closure by Berry Plastics. Since the initial acquisition in July 2010, which preserved more than 30 jobs, the company has grown steadily and, with the formation of the Barricade Building Products division and the acquisition of the Barricade product line from Berry Plastics, total employment will likely expand to over 70 by the see SPECIALTY, pg. 17 

During the meeting Cavalier International Inc. also attended field demonstrations and classroom sessions, gaining handson driving experience for Kubota’s products. “Kubota dealers are central to the company’s success and we consider them our first customers and business partners,” Yuichi “Ken” Kitao, president, Kubota Tractor Corporation, said. “We are proud to work with our entire dealer network to exceed our

customers’ expectations by delivering on product innovation, quality and value, and remarkable customer service.” Kubota Tractor Corporation of Torrance, Calif. is the U.S. marketer and distributor of Kubota-branded equipment, including a complete line of tractors up to 118 PTO hp, performance-matched implements, compact and utilityclass construction equipment, consumer lawn and garden

After having been elected to office on Nov. 8, these seven took the oath of office last Wednesday as members of the Hanover County Board of Supervisors. They are, from left, Wayne T. Hazzard, South Anna District; Elton J. Wade Sr., Cold Harbor; Aubrey M. “Bucky” Stanley, Beaverdam; G. Ed Via III, Ashland; W. Canova Peterson IV, Mechanicsville; Angela C. Kelly-Wiecek, Chickahominy; and Sean M. Davis, Henry.

Elected officials take oath By Jim Fields jfields@mechlocal.com It was a family affair, in more ways than one, at the swearing in ceremony for the recently elected Hanover County Board of Supervisors and constitutional officers. Circuit Court Judge J. Overton Harris presided and administered the oath of office to each elected official, including his brother, T. Scott Harris, as commissioner of the revenue. “He did a good job repeating the oath,” Judge Harris said of his brother, with a touch of humor in his voice. “He didn’t slip up and make any mistakes. It was a special moment for me to administer the oath of office to him.” The judge then said he and his family were very proud of his brother and that he does a good job as commissioner of the revenue. Agreeing with the brothers was William F. Harris, their 88year-old father. “We are serving Hanover County now, but dad has also served the county,” Scott said.

“Years ago, he was on the Planning Commission.” While many other families were present and proud of someone being sworn in, one of the more unusual connections was Wayne Hazzard and his son Kevin. Wayne was sworn in for the Hanover Board of Supervisors Wednesday night, while Kevin was sworn in and Thursday afternoon as a member of the Goochland County School Board.

“I’m here with my mother and sister for him tonight, and, tomorrow, the plan is they will be in Goochland for me,” Kevin said. “We’re all very proud of him.” Since the two are now elected officials, will they share thoughts and information? “I’m sure there will be topics and issues that are of mutual interest that we’ll talk about,” he said. “I also expect there will be see OATH, pg. 21

objects. One person Kelly talked about with a lot of emotion and feeling was Jenny Foster, who was on hand for Cole’s welcome at the school. “She was Cole’s ICU nurse while he was at MCV,” Kelly said. “She cared for him every night in ICU.” Jenny is a nurse in the Neuroscience ICU Department, and she talked about caring for

the teen. “I was one of many, many nurses that took care of him at MCV,” she said. ”You care for him like you would any person, but you realize this is a life-changing event and try to make sure he has anything and everything he needs.” Kelly said Foster was responsible for Cole wanting to live. “I was more of a friend with him than an adult,” Foster, said. “I listened to him, let him talk, and was honest with him about everything.” Kelly said Jenny is now part

of their family. “I guess in many ways I am,” Jenny said. “Cole is part of my life now.” As family and friends began to make their way to the exits, it was apparent Cole was happy and pleased. He had told the crowd how much it meant to be home for Christmas. When asked how it felt to be home, he said, “It feels like a million dollars.” And to have all his friends around him? “Two million dollars.”

County. When it came time for Angela Kelly-Wiecek, Chickahominy District supervisor, to say “I do” after reciting the oath, she did with a loud voice filled with enthusiasm.

Mechanicsville District; Wayne T. Hazzard, South Anna; Angela C. Kelly-Wiecek, Chickahominy; Sean M. Davis, Henry; Elton J. Wade Sr., Cold Harbor; G.

Lee-Davis unable to escape the press in Classic loss

Lee-Davis’ Jalen Harvey tries to get a shot off over Trinity Episcopal’s Nathan Swift.

By Dave Lawrence sports@mechlocal.com Lee-Davis felt the pressure of the holiday season in its Lee-Davis Southerner Classic championship game against Trinity Episcopal Wednesday night. Unfortunately for the Confederates, they did bear it very well. Instead, under the thumb

of the Titans’ press, Lee-Davis coughed up a lot of turnovers and fell to a large deficit early, coasting to a 64-42 loss and handing Trinity Episcopal its second straight tournament title. King William fell to a deeper and more experienced Colonial Heights team 73-43 in the consolation game. Lee-Davis coach Dave

The Mechanicsville Local December 28, 2011

Ellington said he knew at the beginning of the season that his Confederates (4-4) would face a challenging season if they cannot cope with the pressure defense. The first quarter proved his point, with Lee-Davis coughing up 10 turnovers and falling behind 24-6. “We’ve got to learn how to handle pressure, especially in

the Capital District, which is a pressure district,” Ellington said. “That’s what’s making it tough on us.” Ellington had to call two early timeouts to prevent a rout. He called the first with 3:29 left in the first quarter and a 14-4 Titan lead. After that, the turnovers became more infrequent, but missed shots prevented Lee-Davis

from making up any ground. Ellington called the second timeout with 4:42 left in the second quarter and Trinity Episcopal ahead 30-9. The Confederates ran roughly even with the Titans (7-1) after that. But the fundamental problem still remains. “It’s decision-making, it’s seeing the floor better, and in general just making better decisions with the basketball,” Ellington said. “In the pregame talk, all we talk about is

handling the pressure – how to line up, where to be, and how to move it. But they’ve got to execute. We’re just not doing that.” For the Titans – led by Torey Burston with 14 points, Jaylen Hinton with 12 and Khris Lane with 11 – the repeat as champion was just as good as the first time. “It feels good, especially getting to play against the pubsee LEE-DAVIS, pg. 27 `

lic schools we don’t see very often,” said Trinity Episcopal assistant coach Mitch Hauser, who helmed the team in head coach Rick Hamlin’s absence. “It really makes us feel good about where we’re at with our program, being able to come over here and win this.” Aside from confidencebuilding, the tournament had some concrete benefits for the Titans. “We’ll face some great teams that do all sorts of things defensively,” Hauser said. “This week, we were able to go against some man, some zone. We were able to se a little bit of everything to help prepare us for what we’ll see throughout the season.” Hauser agreed with Ellington that the Titans’ pressure defense was pivotal to their victories, which included a 79-50 victory over Colonial Heights on the tournament’s opening night Tuesday. “I think a big key was our

pressure defense in both games, forcing a lot of turnovers and getting us easy looks in transition,” Hauser said. Lee-Davis – led by Jalen Harvey with 8 points – had its share of easy looks, but all too often, instead of driving to the basket, an ill-advised pass resulted in either a turnover or a missed scoring opportunity. “When you get close to the basket, at that point, you’re supposed to shoot the ball, not pass, because everybody’s too packed in,” Ellington said. “Once you get close to the rim, take it up. You might get a foul – better than a turnover. We just keep stressing that over and over. Hopefully they’ll pick up on that.” At the beginning of the season Ellington said the Confederates need to learn how to win, but that did not play much of a role in their loss to the Titans. “It plays a role in tight games. It doesn’t play as much of a role in a game where it’s not close,” Ellington said. “We didn’t really compete very well today. You have to learn how to compete. … The

Hanover game was a situation where we competed. It was a close game, but we didn’t know how to win down the stretch. We went back and made a lot of mistakes down the stretch.” King William coach Joe Harper said he felt his Cavaliers (2-7) competed pretty well in their 42-30 loss to Lee-Davis on the opening night, but, because of their lack of depth, they did not have the energy to run with the Colonials (3-5) in the consolation game. “The competition was good, but I didn’t think they were above our level,” Harper said. “I just think our legs went out. Playing backto-back, we just don’t have the numbers that everybody has.” In the consolation game, Colonial Heights was led by Derrick Holmes with a game-high 24 points and T.J. Daniels with 23. Freeman McPhearson led King William with 16 points. Tuesday night, Lee-Davis was led by Josh Brown with 15 points and 7 assists. Harvey and Abdiel Bolden scored 10 points apiece, and Shrevon Clark had 10

rebounds for the Confederates. McPhearson scored 14 for the Cavaliers. Lane-led Trinity Episcopal had four players in double figures: Lane with 18 points, Josh Brown with 16, and Burston and Hinton with 10 each. Burston also had six assists, six rebounds and seven steals. Lane had six rebounds and Hinton had seven assists. Trinity Episcopal’s Hinton was named tournament most valuable player and Burston was named to the all-tournament team. Also named to the all-tournament team were the Confederates’ Josh Brown and Clark, Miles Hicks of Colonial Heights and King William’s Brandon Fuller.

Abram Dean’s “first real thing” in terms of performing paid off earlier this year when he captured the title of Hanover Junior Idol. Thanks to some encouragement from his mom Debbie Lunsford, he took the leap into the world of music. And now the 16-year-old from Mechanicsville is preparing to move to Texas to pursue his dream. On Aug. 20, Abram and his mother will head to Dallas where he has been accepted to study — and hone his skills — with the Linda Septien Entertainment Group.
