Mechanicsville resident receives VDGIF honor Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com A Mechanicsville resident has been named the recipient of the prestigious Clarence W. Watson Award. According to the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (VDGIF), David K. Whitehurst, director, Bureau of Wildlife Resources, received the honor during the 66th Annual Southeastern Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies October 2012 Conference held in Hot Springs, Ark. The recognition was given to recognize Whitehurst’s outstanding contribution to wildlife conservation. A North Carolina native, Whitehurst received his B.S. and M.S. degrees from North Carolina State University. During his 38-year career at the VDGIF, he has been instrumental in bringing sciencebased management to the Commonwealth’s fisheries and wildlife conservation programs. His conservation achievements include: restoring and enhancing the striped bass programs at Kerr Reservoir and Smith Mountain Lake, which have provided excellent public fishing opportunities; driving the acquisition of the department’s Stewarts Creek Wildlife Management Area; establishing the 845-acre Briery Creek Lake, which has become a premier largemouth bass fishery; taking a leading role in efforts to restore waterways for anadromous fish, including the breaching of the Embrey Dam on the Rappahannock River; establishing a fishway on Bosher’s Dam on the James, which opened hundreds of miles of river to spawning fish; establishing the Virginia Master Naturalist Program; developing the Virginia Birding and Wildlife Trail, which provides wildlife viewing opportunities while bringing in millions in tourism dollars to the communities through which trail loops run; developing the Virginia Wildlife Action Plan, a comprehensive plan which documents species of greatest conservation need in Virginia; and establishing the Aquatic Wildlife Conservation Center to propagate and recover endangered aquatic species. He also is the recipient of a number of awards and honors, including the River

CONFLICT Continued from pg. 1 

name of Diamond Group. You are correct that this property was rezoned in 2008, subject to cash proffers. As County Attorney, I have no authority to determine whether the actions of any public official constitute a violation of the State and Local Government Conflict of Interests Act. Such authority lies, in the first instance, with the Commonwealth’s Attorney, who would determine whether to bring charges under the Act, and, ultimately, with a judge or jury. I will respond to your inquiry, however, by enumerating the actions taken by the current Board of Supervisors with regard to cash proffers in the context of the applicable law. Actions by the Board of Supervisors Regarding Cash Proffers On June 13, 2012, the Board of Supervisors, upon the recommendation of the Finance Committee, created an ad hoc Cash Proffers and Capital Funding Committee (“Proffer Committee”) to provide recommendations to the Board of Supervisors regarding the existing cash proffer methodology and the availability of alternative sources to fund new capital facilities necessary to accommodate community needs. The Board at that time also voted to extend the cash proffer policy that had previously been adopted by the Board one year earlier. On November 14, 2012, the Proffer Committee reported its recommendations to the Board of Supervisors, and on November 28, 2012, the Board held a Cash Proffer and Capital Funding Workshop. After the workshop, the Board voted (1) to advertise a public hearing for January 9, 2013, to consider accepting the Proffer Committee’s recommendation to implement a $10 annual

motor vehicle license fee, (2) to establish and maintain a “reserve for capital improvement projects” to be funded by annual contributions based on reductions in debt service after FY13, (3) to accept the Proffer Committee’s recommendation to eliminate Hanover County’s Cash Proffer Policy, and (4) to accept the Proffer Committee’s recommendation “to eliminate the balance of receivable cash proffers provided that the parties responsible make proper applications to amend their zoning cases to delete the cash proffer condition” and to instruct the County Attorney and Planning Director to develop a means of expediting applications to remove the proffer condition from existing zoning cases and bring it back to the Board for approval. At the meeting on December 12, 2012, the Planning Director, David Maloney, and I discussed with the Board of Supervisors the options for considering requests to amend or eliminate outstanding cash proffers on previously zoned properties. Ultimately, it was the consensus of the Board not to change the existing process for proffer amendments, which means that every request to amend outstanding cash proffers will be referred to the Planning Commission for public hearing and a recommendation prior to coming back to the Board for another public hearing before a decision is made. Because no change in the existing process was made, no vote was required or taken. The Board did, however, vote to accept my recommendation that County staff accept bonds or other surety in lieu of payment of cash proffers for lots subject to cash proffers until applications to amend or eliminate the proffers have been decided by the Board. Finally, Mr. Maloney and I conferred with the Board as to whether certain types of cases, such as those with fifty or fewer remaining lots, should be given first priority. However, no Board member made a motion

owned by Diamond Group clearly falls within the category of properties previously rezoned subject to cash proffers to which this motion and vote by the Board of Supervisors is applicable. Therefore, it could be argued that, because this action of the Board begins a process which could ultimately lead to the elimination or amendment of the cash proffers due on the tract of land owned by Diamond Group and other similarly situated properties, Mr. Hazzard should have declared his interest in the property in accordance with Va. Code § 2.2-3112(A)(2) and § 2.2-3114(F). On the other hand, the vote taken by the Board to accept the Proffer Committee’s recommendation did not change the proffers applicable to the Diamond Group tract of land or any other property. In fact, the Board’s action expressly states that property owners will have to make subsequent applications to amend the proffers. Clearly, if and when the Diamond Group files an application to amend the proffers on the tract of land in Cold Harbor District, Mr. Hazzard will be required to disclose his interest and refrain from participation in the discussion or vote on that application. It is also arguable that Mr. Hazzard should have declared his interests prior to the Board’s discussion of the options for considering requests to amend outstanding cash proffers on previously zoned properties at the meeting on December 12, 2012. However, it should be noted that it was the consensus of the Board not to change the existing process for proffer amendment and that no motion was made nor vote taken. The Board did vote to accept my proposal to accept bonds or other surety in lieu of payment of cash proffers during the period within which requests for proffer amendments will be considered. However, it does not appear that this decision by the Board affects the property

owned by Diamond Group. No subdivision plans for that tract of land have yet been submitted by Diamond Group. Until the property has been subdivided and the plat recorded, lots cannot be sold and homes cannot be constructed. Cash proffers are not collected until the issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy on a completed home. Therefore, it would be virtually impossible for Diamond Group or any successors to utilize the option of submitting a bond or other surety in lieu of cash proffers on lots from this tract of land within the one year period beginning November 28, 2012, during which requests for proffer amendments will be accepted. I hope that this letter has been responsive to your inquiry. If you have any further questions, please call me.

In making the announcement regarding the Watson Award, Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries executive director Bob Duncan said, “David Whitehurst is the consummate professional and it is especially gratifying to see David’s contributions recognized in this fashion. In my opinion, this award is richly deserved by David.” The Clarence W. Watson Award is the most prestigious conservation award given in the Southeast and is presented to the career individual who, in the opinion of the award committee, has made the greatest contribution to wildlife or fisheries conservation during the previous year or years in areas such as research, administration, law enforcement, Information and Education, or wildlife and fisheries management. Preference is given to nominees in the Southeast. Whitehurst joins former VDGIF director Chester Phelps (1971) and VDGIF game warden John Crumb (1968) as fellow Virginian recipients of the Clarence W. Watson Award.

LETTERS

From the editor

Division isn’t just about math these days Division used to be a word mostly associated with math. Admittedly, that was a long time ago — as in elementary school days. Now, sadly, division is an over-used word to describe the state of our nation. That is, at least from a political standpoint. We prove over and over again our compassion and devotion to helping one another in times of crisis and emergency. Yet, we continue to read about the battles in our own government. (Did you hear that big groan?!) So, that’s what we would call “the big picture.” Now we seem to find ourselves in need of taking a look at our county, our home. Depending on who you’re talking to, who is sending the e-mail, who is writing the letter, Hanover County apparently is in an unusual place: one of division. Well, some would say that; others will disagree. We receive many calls from residents expressing concerns about the state and future of our county. Whether it’s an issue you would consider legitimate, it is to that individual who has taken the time to voice an opinion or request for direction. As residents, we pride ourselves on not sharing the typical image associated with a metropolitan area. Overall, we live in safe, friendly communities. We have an envied school district, strong police presence and dedicated fire/rescue personnel. In addition to those pluses, we have leadership in our government and school system that set standards for operations across Virginia as well as the United States. But, that word division seems to be cropping up too often. Did the change of the face of the Hanover County Board of Supervisors last year have that great an impact on our day-to-day operations? Will administrative changes — and departures — affect the strengths in government and schools? These are questions for discussion — and your feedback, as always, is welcome. As Bob Dylan wrote, “Times they are a-changin’. ” Whatever your opinions, share them with those elected to serve (and never lose sight that we influence that process). Express yourself in our letters to the editor forum. Speak out and be heard. Exchange division with unison. Melody Kinser

‘The haircut’ and why change Parent appreciates words is an option in Washington from sheriff about safety One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he asked about his bill and the barber replied, “I cannot accept money from you, I’m doing community service this week.” The florist was pleased and left the shop. When the barber went to open his shop the next morning there was a “thank you” card with a dozen roses waiting for him at his door. Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replied, “cannot accept money from you; I’m doing community service this week.” The cop was happy and left the shop. The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a “thank you” card with a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door. Then a congressman came in for a haircut, and when he went to pay his bill the barber again replied, “I cannot accept money from you. I’m doing community service this week.” The congressman was very happy and left the shop. The next morning, when the barber went to open up there were a dozen congressmen lined up waiting for a free haircut. And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between the citizens of our country and the politicians who run it. Both politicians and diapers need to be changed often and for the same reason. This was originally meant as a joke but I think it illustrates who the “bad guys” really are. Not the Demicans . . . not the Republicrats . . . but the “career politicians” that suck money from the lobbyists and PACS and special interest . . . the military/industrial complex that has spiraled out of control . . . the greedy-billionaire-corporate heads that feel they are above reproach. I think the folks in congress need to treat their constituents like the special interest that we are . . . interested in getting our country back again . . . not from the Demicans or Republicrats . . . but from the Koch Bros . . . the military/industrial complex corporations . . . Halliburton . . . and the likes. I think we should stand behind our newly elected president and get this country back to work . . . back from the brink (“Financial Cliff-Hanger”) . . . back to the once great nation we were back in the 1940’s with “The Greatest Generation” that fought fascism in Europe and the Far East. Some folks that know me, think I need a haircut . . . God Bless the USA . . . and Virginia and Hanover County! Dr. Richard Ryder, PhD Mechanicsville

I wish to thank Col. David R. Hines, Hanover County sheriff, for his recent essay in The Local regarding school safety in Hanover County. While sensationalism and political posturing inevitably garner the bulk of attention after an event like Newtown, the legitimate and sober concerns of ordinary citizens too often go unaddressed. Col. Hines struck the proper balance between reassuring the public and not compromising the effectiveness of his department or its procedures. As a parent, I appreciated both his consideration and his professionalism. Joseph Pierro Mechanicsville

Yellow signs and actions of our elected officials I agree with the letter to the editor about the yellow signs of the TEA Party. I don’t think freedom of speech should allow one to question the actions of our elected officials. If we don’t have anything good to say, we shouldn’t be allowed to say anything. We should be required to do as the elected officials and government employees do to each other and that is tell them how great they are at the beginning their terms, in the middle of their terms and at the end of their terms. Giving each other accolades and trophies does not require anything but to be employed in an elected or hired government position. For their service they have been paid very well, with the best of retirement, the best of see LETTERS, pg. 14

August 2011 and it wasn’t until late September that he was contacted and asked if he still wanted to be in the film. Ewald said yes and went in to be fitted for a costume the next day. Filming began in October 2011 and continued through December, Ewald said. He said he worked 13 days and figures that he put in about 180 hours of filming at $8 an hour. “And they paid you so much for your beard and so much for being in a smoke-filled room,” he added. “They fed you breakfast every morning and lunch every day when we were working.” The fact that he had a beard and could be considered for the movie was in some ways divine intervention and goes back to when Wanda, his wife of 51 years, died more than two years ago, Ewald said. “I think maybe it was meant to be because, when my wife passed away, I quit shaving,” he said. Ewald said he auditioned for a speaking part as a congressman who was to say “Nay,” when a vote was being taken on the 13th Amendment, which outlawed slavery. Despite not getting the part, Ewald said his name is in the movie credits

because he had to sign a contract to be eligible for the part. “But I am in the movie,” he said. “I’m in quite a few times. There’s four good shots. I mean, you get wrapped up really in the period because it was just wonderful. It was an experience that I’ll savor the rest of my life.” His experience as an extra has changed his perspective on how movies are made, Ewald said. “Because, my goodness, the way they shot things and how they pulled it all together,” he said. “It was just amazing. Steven Spielberg is a hands-on guy. He’s there. He’s a neat guy. He really is.” Ewald said he didn’t get to talk with main characters Daniel Day-Lewis, who played Lincoln; Sally Field, who portrayed Lincoln’s wife; or Tommy Lee Jones, who had the role of Congressman Thaddeus Stevens. But Ewald said he did get to speak with Hal Holbrook, who also is in the film. “We had a nice little chat,” Ewald said. “He said, ‘You’re a sharp-looking guy,’ and I said, ‘Well, so are you sir.’ ” “It really, really was exciting,” Ewald added. “You live the part, and, I guess if you watch

the movie, it’s almost like Daniel Day-Lewis — he lived the part of Abe Lincoln because he did a marvelous job. He really did. It was just like it was Abe. There was no doubt about it.” If given the opportunity, Ewald said he would jump at the chance to be in another movie. “It would be fun to get in another one because it took up some of my idle time,” he said. “It was some lonely time. That was just a little over a year from [when] my wife passed and it was some time that I needed away from things. It was really a great experience and I’d do it again if I could land another one.” Ewald said he enjoyed working with the cast and crew and he also enjoyed being invited to the Virginia premiere of “Lincoln” on Nov. 8 at the Byrd Theatre. “It was really nice,” he said. “They had a red carpet and it was really neat.” It was even more exciting when he saw himself on the big screen, Ewald said. “The feeling that just comes over you that you say, ‘My God, is this really happening?’ ” he

ing to rely on other people to drive him everywhere he wants to go has been an unexpected challenge. In Hamelin, he was accustomed to being very independent and getting around by mass transit. In Germany, you must be at least 18 to drive, but it’s not necessary, Henri said. Language and food differences have not been problem. Henri has completed seven years of English and four years of Latin, and he said the food is good. He describes it as “international – pasta, Chinese food, soup, nothing exotic.” To help introduce his host family to German food, his mother sent a German/English cookbook for them to use. So far, Henri has cooked some

schnitzel and red cabbage and a potato dish for them to try. “It was good,” Tara said. While the difference in cuisine is not a big deal, one thing he does miss is German candy, especially licorices and chocolates. He said he was thrilled when his mother sent him an Advent package before Christmas that included his favorite treats. He sheepishly admits that he’s already eaten most of them. Tara said they would like to offer Henri more cultural experiences while he is here. They welcome invitations and suggestions from organizations and businesses. Tara can be reached at 804335-8485.

wanted to visit the states – all of them. He said he would especially like to see the West Coast on one of his next trips to the U.S. At this point, he said his favorite experience was going to New York City with about 200 other exchange students from all over the world for an orientation program. They also toured the city and saw the Empire State Building, Central Park and some of the national museums. Although most of his experiences in America have been what he anticipated, living in rural Mechanicsville and hav-

“Beth” Johnston Johnston, Ada Elizabeth T., “Beth”, 54, of Englewood, Florida, formerly of Quinton, Virginia; went to be with our

insurance, snow days, business and income opportunities (not known or available to the working taxpayer), and, after all this, some even get a school, bridge, building or planet named after them. We also should be required to participate in penning their “end of term book” just in case anyone doubts their fabulous days in office we could help them get the last word in through a book of how great they were so they can continue to make millions. All the books would be named “How great I was, how great I am, and how great I will continue to be.” The public should not be allowed to harass or keep tabs on our elected officials, they are public servants. We know

all too well that they are very capable of taking money from the public and serving it to each other without any input from us. Our elected officials should have full power to enact a Virginia code at any time, against any taxpayer complaint, so that the taxpayer can be reminded that if we don’t like it, tough, it is now required by State Law. Virginia code 11.943.16.244736 could be “Virginia Law requires, in order to call yourself, patriotic or American, you must be an elected official or friends or lobbyist of an elected official or business partner of an elected official. A taxpayer or regular run of the mill American should not be allowed to carry the designation of patriotic or American. And, yes, don’t wrap your-

self in the American flag. You can burn it, stomp on it, shred it, but don’t wrap your self in it. We do not want another Patrick Henry and the government will take our 2nd Amendment right to prove it. And. as any good politician would say, “I take full responsibility for this letter.

Shooting dog mean, spiteful I was so saddened and disheartened to read about the little hunting dog that got shot because he came on someone’s property that didn’t want him. This letter is directed to you. What you did was just plain mean and spiteful and totally unjustified.

That little dog had a family that loved him and his life was just as important to him as your life is to you. There is no forgiveness for what you did. For the family that lost their pet, my deepest condolences to you. I truly hope in time the pain and grief will lessen and you all will come to understand that your little dog is still with you in spirit. Diane M. Edwards Mechanicsville

Recycling hampered

Debating fate of chimpanzees

Large banners at the Hanover County recycling centers encourage all of us to recycle. “Don’t throw discards away. This is like throwing away money.”

I am writing in connection with the four chimpanzees that Curtis Shepperson has that the county wants him to either relocate to a sanctuary or other similar facility or be euthanized.

I feel it is a sad situation, which, if these chimpanzees are euthanized, it will cause a great deal of anguish not only for the Shepperson family, the remaining chimpanzees that have bonded to the four that now have to be relocated, and, more importantly, the public that seems to have grown attached see LETTERS, pg. 15

In addition to being in the film, Ewald said he also appears in a national trailer that advertises the movie and he’s been featured in newspaper stories as well. “I’m very blessed really,” Ewald said of his involvement with “Lincoln.” “It’s really a good history lesson and — even if I’m in it — it’s a good deal.”

to these animals through exhibits and lectures. Isn’t there any way these four chimpanzees can be allowed to stay – either through a public hearing, issuing of a special permit since they have been here for several years without any problem to the public? I really think it would be a good public relations policy for the county if some way could be found to allow them to stay here if Mr. Shepperson cannot locate a sanctuary or zoo to relocate them. This story has gone across the whole nation through emails, Internet forums and the animal-loving could be aroused to action such as boycotts to the county if some way could not be found to move them and they had to be euthanized. With the economy as bad as it is, Hanover County cannot afford to lose any potential revenue. Therefore, I really feel it would be far more beneficial

to the county to let them stay if a home cannot be located rather than euthanize them. In fact, responses on the WTVR comment section of their website concerning the story are running nearly 99 percent (23 out of 25) as of this writing in favor of keeping the chimpanzees exactly where they are. Here is the link to see those comments: http://wtvr. com/2012/12/28/manschimps-face-uncertain-futurein-hanover-county/ As you can see, one writer said they are a threatened species, so every effort should be made to keep them alive rather than euthanize them. Please try to save these animals that have been not only a blessing to the Sheppersons but to many citizens of Hanover and other areas as well. I really think some way can be found not to put them down. Where there is a will there is a way. Richard W. Firth Mechanicsville

Protecting voting rights Is it racist to have to show a photo ID when you: cash a check at the bank, attend a doctor’s office visit, pick up medications at the pharmacy, make a purchase at the ABC store, register for food stamps, renew your license at the DMV, register for free county services, get admitted to hospital, participate in union elections, obtain a library card, claim a lottery winning ticket, or sign up for a Sam’s Club/Costco membership? Why then would opponents of photo ID make the claim that the law is racist and attempts to suppress the vote? If photo identification in and of itself is discriminatory, then it is always discriminatory. Photo ID discriminates when you request a library card, get on an airplane, go to the doctor’s office, and apply for food stamps — not just when you vote.

There is no evidence that In fact, the opposite is true in tification to vote. photo ID laws suppress the vote. states that require proof of iden-

IN THE KITCHEN | Our readers share their favorite recipes — those passed down through families and original creations

Less is more – time to clean out those cabinets By Dobby Bruce Hodges for The Mechanicsville Local (Editor’s note: Today we feature another recipe from Dobby Bruce Hodges, one of our readers who will be a frequent contributor to this page devoted to favorite recipes, especially those handed down through generations of families. Of course, original creations also will be spotlighted. If you would like to share a recipe with us, send it to mkinser@mechlocal.com.

One of my resolutions is “less is more.” I am thinking of new ways to use up what I have in my pantry and cabinets. Just how many cans of soup does one person need? I went to my stack of treasured family recipes and thought “What can I make

T

with a few simple ingredients that I have in my pantry that will give me a great Sunday dinner and a bunch of leftovers for the week ahead?” HODGES It hit me: Mom’s Pot Roast! Growing up on the farm, we ate a lot of “pot roast.” My mom would always use an inexpensive cut of beef (chuck roast) and put it in her electric fry pan with potatoes, carrots and onions then cover it with a can of soup and let it cook away. It would always be fork tender and delicious. She would thicken the “drippings” with a bit of flour before serving. With my mom’s recipe in mind and wanting a lot of leftovers for the coming busy week, I decided not to put the

toes, carrots and onion slices in an electric skillet or a crockpot; cover with soup mixture and cook until fork tender. To make the gravy, add a little flour to the pan drippings and whisk until smooth. For a little richer gravy, add a pat of butter. (Note: If using an electric skillet, you might not need all of the liquid.) Since I don’t have an electric skillet, I pulled out my trusty crockpot to use and it did great! This recipe is so easy and you can adapt the recipe to serve

your family. With leftovers, I will make “open-face” roast beef sandwiches one night and then Shephard’s Pie the next. Less is more!

In every state where photo ID laws have been enacted, voter participation has increased substantially, simply because voters in both parties understand that their vote counts. This belief is reflected in national polls that indicate 70 percent of the American population agrees that proving who you are prior to voting is important and necessary and ensures a free and fair election. In a recent Rasmussen poll when the question was asked if voter fraud was a serious or somewhat serious issue or not a serious issue 63 percent of white respondents said it was a serious or somewhat serious issue and 64 percent of AfricanAmericans said it was a serious or somewhat serious issue. African-Americans believe this because they know they are the biggest victims of voter fraud.

50% OFF All Dental Work In February! A once yearly dental cleaning, much like the procedure performed by your dentist, can help prevent periodontal disease. A dental cleaning involves scaling of all teeth, checking for pockets of infection, loose teeth, and exposed nerve roots, as well as polishing. While a yearly dental procedure does provide cosmetic advantages such as clean teeth and fresh breath, it can also improve your petʼs general health. Infection and inflammation in the mouth can affect your petʼs entire body and can lead to other more serious medical problems such as heart & kidney disease.

Washington and Henry Lodge #344 of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons, held its annual election and installation of officers on Monday, Dec. 10, 2012. Officers are, from left, front row, Dale Jordan, senior deacon; Bill Wichelman, treasurer; Robert Harvie, secretary; and Tom Clark, junior deacon; and, back row, Richard Norman Dibble, Worshipful Master; Brian Alfano, junior warden; and Bob Dillard, chaplain. John O’Dell Sr. and Dennis Tatum also serve as officers. O’Dell is senior warden and Tatum is marshal. The term “Worshipful Master” is an ancient term, dating back to the origins of the fraternity, which grew out of the stonemason guilds of the Middle Ages. It is used to refer to the presiding officer, and is loosely translated to mean “a respected leader.” Washington and Henry Lodge #344 AF&AM was chartered on Feb. 14, 1923. It is located at 8080 Mechanicsville Turnpike in the heart of “Old Mechanicsville.”

Non-insurable crops deadline nears By Ken Upshaw County executive director The Non-Insured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP) was designed to reduce financial losses that occur when natural disasters cause a catastrophic loss of production or prevented planting of an eligible crop by providing coverage equivalent to catastrophic (CAT) insurance. Statute limits NAP to each commercial crop or agricultural commodity, except livestock, for which CAT is not available. The application deadline for 2013 coverage on non-insurable crops is Feb. 15, 2013. 2013 NAP coverage is $250 per crop, but not more than $750 per producer per county, or not more than $1875 per

producer for all counties.

Confederates edge Atlee by 0.2 for Quad win Valasek claims All-Around title By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Before announcing the results of the Hanover Quad meet between Atlee, LeeDavis, Hanover and Patrick Henry, Confederates’ coach Cy Witherow asked all of the gymnasts to put their hands together. Witherow did not want the athletes to applaud themselves but rather get a representation of the meet itself. “That’s how close it was,” he told the group of young women. In one of the closest county gymnastic quads ever, Lee-Davis edged out perennial champion Atlee by 0.2 points, 136.35 to 136.15. “They have had our number for years and I knew that if we could put a good meet together, we stood a chance,” Witherow said. On the other hand, Atlee coach Donna Koehler displayed a light-hearted surprise at the final tally. “I feel like we did a good job and I’m shocked with the results because I feel like we definitely should have come out on top,” she said. Patrick Henry was not far behind in third with 132.2 and neither was Hanover, finishing with 127.1 points. “I’m not surprised,” said Patrick Henry senior Kristen Valasek. “I knew all of the teams were really good and everyone

gave it their all and that’s all you can ask for.” Valasek came into the meet as the defending regional AllAround champion but runnerup in the 2012 Quad, missing out on the title by .2 points. However, this year Valasek took the title with a solid performance edging out Atlee’s Skylar Lambert 36.55 to 35.7. “I did my best and that’s all I was asking for,” Valasek said. The Patriot standout took first in the uneven bars (9.25) and balance beam (9.6). Valasek’s floor routine earned her a third place finish (9.0) as well as a third

place in the vault (8.85) where the limitations of the Stonewall Jackson Middle School gym prevented her from attempting her most difficult vault. “The runway wasn’t long enough,” she said. “At regionals, hopefully I’ll be able to do that there.” Lee-Davis’ Brooke Morris took third in the All-Around (35.4) followed by Atlee’s Derika Banks (33.9), Lee-Davis’ Kinsee Stonebreaker (33.7) and Atlee’s Hailey Hulser (33.35). As a team, Lee-Davis dominated the vault and floor routines. Five of the six Confederate

floor routines earned ribbons, as each athlete took to the floor to surpass the performance of their teammates. Becca Fields took second (9.05) followed by Kinsee Stonebreaker (9.0), Madison Godsey (8.65), Morris (8.55) and Kylie Stonebreaker (8.5). That performance was surpassed on the vault where every competing Confederate was recognized. Godsey finished second (8.95) followed by Kinsee Stonebreaker (8.85), Jordan Lipinksi (8.85), Fields, (8.9), Kylie Stonebreaker (8.85) and see QUAD, pg.33 `

Morris (8.6). On the uneven bars Godsey took fourth (8.6) and Morris sixth (8.05). However, Lee-Davis came up short on the beam. With a 9.25 Godsey claimed second but she was the only C-fed to earn a ribbon. Happy with the win, Witherow still felt there was room for much improvement. “I hope these kids see this as a stepping stone rather than, ‘Oh, we’re there.’ Because we’re not there,” he said. “There’s lots of little things that we can do. “I can think of now, a point we can pick up just by doing some things better and adding some things that they’re capable of doing and they just didn’t do,” Witherow said. “Some kids left something out of a pass. Had a kid lost four-tenths on beam because of elements she left out. Had another one had a clean routine but no connections; so a lot of little things.” While happy with the performance of all his athletes, Witherow has especially been pleased with the work ethic of Kinsee Stonebreaker, who presents a rare combination of gymnast and state championship softball player. “She’s one of those kids that you’d love to have on your team,” he said. “I’d love to have 10 of them because she works really hard and is never satisfied. But she keeps everything in perspective.” For Atlee, Koehler was pleased with the performances from Lambert, Hulser and Banks. Lambert turned in a first place floor routine (9.25) but was the only Raider to ribbon in the event. Lambert also gave the meet’s top vault (9.15) while teammates Hulser and Sara Cole tied for fourth (8.7). The Raiders also picked up three ribbons on the uneven

bars. Kaitlyn Ball took second (8.8), Lambert third (8.65) and Banks fifth (8.1). Atlee claimed three ribbons on the balance beam (Hulser 9.2, Banks 8.9, Lambert 8.65) but it was the one event that caused problems for every team in the meet. “We needed to stick the beam,” Koehler said. “Hailey did okay and Skylar really came back and nailed her routine.” Overall, the beam scores were down for the meet possibly due to nerves. Because all four teams were in one location, several photographers were present capturing yearbook photos. Along with media coverage, six photographers were in attendance and nowhere were they closer to the action than on the beam. Some gymnasts noted the clicking of cameras presented a distraction. Patrick Henry made its best showing as a team on the vault where Alex Reed (8.65) and Lauren Earley (8.60) joined Valasek as ribbon winners. Keion Greenhon also picked up a ribbon for the Patriots

with a fifth place floor routine (8.55). “The team did really well,” Valasek said. “We did as much as we could.” Hanover’s Katelynne Gillis took fourth on the uneven bars (8.6) while she and Julia Grubbs claimed ribbons with 8.6 point vaults. The teams have two weeks off before taking to the mats once again in the District/ Regional meet at Deep Run High School on Feb. 2. then the state meet at Centerville High School on Feb. 15-16. Witherow feels the time off will give the athletes a chance to hone their skills. “I don’t think it really hurts any of the kids because it gives you a chance to fine tune some of the things you saw tonight,” he said. “Most of the judges that judged tonight will judge that meet at the regional event, so it’s just like ‘Okay, she didn’t give you this because it wasn’t clean enough, so you’ve got to get that cleaner’.” Witherow also feels that the work of gymnasts is often overlooked when it comes to getting

a win. “It’s not like somebody throws up a luck 3-pointer at the end of the game to beat you, these kids work real hard,” he said. “I don’t think a lot of people understand how hard they work.” All four teams hope that hard work pays dividends in the regional and beyond.

Local support bolstered return to coaching Mechanicsville helps Scott move on By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com When Virginia State University named Latrell Scott as their new head football coach last week, it was a milestone in the path of the Lee-Davis alumni’s return to prominence. In 2010, Scott became the nation’s youngest Division I football coach at the University of Richmond but resigned on the eve of the following season after being arrested for a DWI. After which, Scott spent a lot of time in self-examination on the mistakes of his past. “Everyone knows that I’ve been through a lot in the last 15 months,” Scott said as an opening statement during his introduction at VSU. “I’ve got a great group of family and I’ve got a great group of friends that have supported me through this thing. Without them I wouldn’t be standing here before you.” However, Scott said he also found unexpected support from strangers in the Mechanicsville community. “It was such a great outpouring from the community and the area when I had my issue,” Scott said. “I got letters and cards from people in Mechanicsville I have no idea who they were. I’m just so thankful to those people that they cared enough to do that.” As such, Scott felt being hired as the head coach at VSU was a way to show them that their support and trust was justified. “To be able to do this here in front of them is important because I want those people to come down.” Immediately following his departure from Richmond, Scott spent time contemplating his future. The answer came from a former Lee-Davis connection. “I sat around my house for

a few days and I thought about what I wanted to do with my future,” Scott said. “I got an email from my high school basketball coach, Chip Carter.” Carter sent Scott a story about Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington. In 2009, Washington was certain he would test positive for cocaine usage. Instead of waiting for the results to verify his drug use, Washington contacted the commissioner and Rangers’ owners to admit his guilt. “He was thinking about walking away from the game of baseball,” Scott said. “He said he was walking around one day and thought of all the things I can do. He said, ‘Well, I’m pretty good at baseball so I better just bounce back and stick with that’.” Because he was preemptive in admitting his guilt, Washington retained his job as manager of the Rangers and two years later coached them to the World Series. Scott saw similarities in his

The Mechanicsville Local January 23, 2013

own situation. “From that point on, I moved on and made my decision to go back and impact the lives of others,” he said. Like Washington, Scott demonstrated outstanding character in dealing with the situation at the University of Richmond by

coming forward and volunteering to pay the consequences for his error in judgment. “It’s a life lesson, things happen and we’ve just got to move on,” Scott said. Scott’s willingness to admit guilt and accept responsibility

did not go unnoticed by VSU. “It was huge,” said VSU Athletic Director Peggy Davis. “This is America and America is a country of second chances because we also understand people make mistakes. It’s not the mistake you made but what you have learned from your mistake.” There was no elusion of the facts when Scott first spoke to Davis about the coaching position. “When we first had our conversation, he said, ‘Look, I need to share some things with you’,” Davis said. “Integrity is so important.” Davis said the situation with Scott’s departure from Richmond was discussed by VSU President Keith T. Miller, the school’s board of visitors, several groups on campus. “They were all very impressed with his openness and the fact he can move forward.” The Trojan football team was equally impressed by Scott’s candidness upon first meeting him. Sophomore linebacker Brandon Robinson, a Lee-Davis alum, said Scott made the best of a bad situation at Richmond by demonstrating his integrity. “I think he handled it extremely

well.” Likewise, Robinson and his teammates are ready to put the past behind them. “We make mistakes,” Robinson said. “I don’t really have any say in it. It doesn’t bother me at all. I’m fine with it. He explained the whole situation to us. Told us what really happened and I’m ready to move on passed it.” When it comes to the game of football, Robinson could not be more pleased with the university’s hire of Scott. “It makes me feel more comfortable now that I know I have a Lee-Davis alumni with me here,” he said. “I’m excited for him to get hired down here. He brings a lot of energy. It’s going to be a fun new program to get incorporated into and get the hang of. I’m ready to rock and roll and see what he’s got.” Robinson, who led the Trojans with 86 tackles last season, is one of 10 returning Central Region players on the VSU roster, and the only former Capital District player, but he believes those numbers will change with Scott’s hire. “I think it’s going to bring a lot more local guys here,” he said.

Murphys lay down law for Atlee in rival swim meet By Dave Lawrence For The Mechanicsville Local The Murphys laid down the law when Atlee and Hanover met for a swim meet Wednesday night at Randolph-Macon College. Atlee’s Madalyn and Molly Murphy won four events apiece. Each won two individual events and were part of two winning relay teams as the Raiders’ girls dominated the Hawks en route to a 133-37 win. Atlee’s Wyatt Grubb also picked up four wins – two individually and on two relay teams – to help lead the boys’ team to a near sweep of Hanover. The Raiders’ boys

The Mechanicsville Rebels Midget Varsity football team was once again in the spotlight. Although all the players were champions, the coaches were asked to select three Rebels to represent Mechanicsville in the first ever National Gridiron 365 All-Stars Game played at the Capital One Field, Byrd Stadium at the University of Maryland on Dec. 30, 2012.

Atlee had the rest of the wins. Madalyn and Molly Murphy were part of the winning girls’ 200 medley relay team with Emily Beaudin and Michele Mackey. Madalyn was also part of the winning 200 freestyle relay team, with Sargeant, Madeline White and Brittany Wilkerson, while Molly Murphy was part of the winning 400 freestyle relay

team with Beaudin, Mackey and Wilkerson. Madalyn Murphy had individual wins in the 50 and 100 freestyles. Molly Murphy had individual wins in the 500 freestyle and 100 breaststroke. Beaudin and Mackey also had individual wins, Beaudin in the 200 individual medley and Mackey in the 100 backstroke. Grubb was part of Atlee’s winning relay teams, the 200 medley relay with Jesse Burnley, Shane Condon and Jack Stockhausen; and the 400 freestyle relay team with Burnley, Condon and Graham Roper.

lot of camaraderie throughout the night. “We’re all Hanover County teams. We all practice in the same facility at the same times, so we get to know each other,” Stockhausen said. “Even though we are rivals, everyone here cheers for [each other] and still supports Hanover County.” Despite the resounding Atlee victory, Bernstein found a lot to be happy with in the Hawks’ performances Wednesday. “I told my kids that I really just wanted them to come out, swim their best strokes, and improve their times – and they did,” Bernstein said. “When you swim a better team, it tends to bring out the best in what you have, too.” The teams have only a few weeks remaining in their regular season before championship events get under way. On Feb. 9, the Central Region championships take place at NOVA Aquatics Center. The following week, brings the state championships, on Feb. 15-16 at George Mason University.

Hanover comeback snatches victory from Atlee Wade and Brown lead Hawks past Raiders By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com The host Hanover Hawks got all they could handle and more from visiting Atlee last Tuesday night. However, Hanover junior Jordan Wade and freshman Jalen Elliott exploded for a pair of late game surges to push the Hawks to a difficult 72-56 Capital District victory that was not indicative of the final score. Hanover (7-4, 3-4 Capital) pulled out to an early 11-6 lead before Atlee (3-12, 1-6) started to take control. The Raiders came into the rivalry contest as winners of only one district game and that may have contributed to Hanover’s slow start. “Atlee just came out ready to play and we got a little off because we were thinking they weren’t a good team and we

just underestimated them,” said Hawks’ senior guard Trayvonte Brown. Records aside, Atlee showed from the start they were not going to go down without a

fight. Rashaun Winters, who finished with 14 rebounds, 11 points, three blocks and a steal for the Raiders, took command of the paint allowing leading scorer Brian Miller (21 points)

to play his game from outside. Miller scored on a put-back and pair of free throws then Winters added one more from the line to tie the game at 11 as Hanover committed five con-

secutive fouls. Wade put the Hawks back on top with a pair of freebies but Mac Gray re-tied the game seconds later. Throughout the first half, Hanover was clearly frustrated by Atlee’s defense. “I think they had a little scouting report on us so they knew what we were

doing,” Wade said. The Raiders began to assert their control in the second period and frustrate the Hanover offense further. Atlee’s Jarris Hendricks got things going with a three from the left wing and Quincy Randolf added a trifecta from see HANOVER, pg. 37 `

ed, or perhaps low-lighted, by an eight minute fourth quarter that took nearly an hour to play. There were mistakes on offense and mistakes on defense. There were mistakes in planning and mistakes in execution. There were mistakes by the score keepers and mistakes by the officials. However, there was no mistaking the effort put in by both teams as Atlee escaped with an extremely hard fought 56-48 win. “I would definitely say it was unpredictable,” said Atlee head coach LaTanya Collins. “You just don’t know what to expect in these type of games anyway. When you take two teams that are this close in proximity; girls that have grown up with

each other. It’s going to be competitive… No matter what the records are, I can probably say every time we play each other you’re probably going to say, ‘How did that happen?’” On this night, that particular question could have possibly been trumped by ‘What just happened?’ Atlee guard Jamari Blackwell (12 points) led the way early, scoring five of the Raiders 11 first quarter points. Hanover’s Haleigh Omohundro matched that mark on back-to-back shots while four points from Sydni Carey had the Hawks trailing by one at the end of the period. Atlee went on an 8-2 run see ATLEE, pg. 37 `

Randolf added a trifecta from the right baseline. Winters then brought the Atlee crowd to their feet when he blocked a Hanover shot, pulled down the ball, raced the length of the court and scored to put the Raiders ahead 23-16. Miller then scored six of the next eight Atlee points pushing the margin to 29-21 with 3:19 remaining in the half. The Hawks finally got some momentum from Brown heading into the locker room. Brown, who finished the night with 17 points, six rebounds and five steals, outscored Atlee 5-2 in the final three minutes of the half to pull the Hawks within five, 31-26 at the break. In the locker room Hanover head coach Darren Thornton tried to set his team’s priorities straight. “It’s very hard, but the biggest thing is we can’t focus

to start the second quarter but Hanover answered with a 9-0 run of their own to claim the lead, 21-19. But a basket by Atlee’s Cierra Shelton with 25 seconds remaining sent the two teams into the locker room tied 21-21. The Raiders opened the second half with an 8-0 run off a basket from Stephanie Staples and six straight from Shelton, who led all scorers with 17 points. Yet, Hanover began to close in. A three from the left wing and a pair of free throws by Amber Norris (15 points) was followed by a free throw from April Lankford to pull the Hawks within 33-27. Atlee answered. A pair of Blackwell baskets bracketed four straight points from Ashley Weaver (13 points) and the scoreboard read 41-33 heading into the final quarter of play.

on just that offensive end,” he said. “We’ve got to get stops going the other way so if it’s not falling for us our defense will always be there.” The Hawks turned their defense up a notch in the second half but initially it netted just as many fouls as points. Six minutes into the third quarter, Hanover had scored six points and been whistled for six fouls. Meanwhile, Atlee continued to maintain their lead. A trio of free throws from Randolf and Miller were followed by baskets from Gray, Winters and Miller to put the Raiders on top 40-32 with 3:23 left in the third. However, when Hanover turned their defense up one more notch things suddenly started going their way. With 1:40 left in the period, Usman Mahmood connected on a three from the right wing. It was then Wade’s turn to take control, scoring eight of the That was when the strangeness began. Before the fourth quarter could get under way, the coaches and officials gathered at the scoring table. “There was a discrepancy with the point spread,” Collins explained. “The home book had us at an eight point spread. I believe our book had a nine point spread.” Ironically, the two reporters covering the game had the spread at 10 points. After a lengthy discussion, the scoreboard stayed at 41-33. “The home book wins,” Collins said. When play finally got under way, Shelton connected on one of two free throws to inch the Raiders ahead by nine, but Atlee then went scoreless over the next three and half minutes. Despite coming up with steals and open layups, the ball refused to drop through the hoop for the Raiders. At one point, the results were so bad even an official commented,

next 11 Hawk points. On defense, Wade drew a charging foul on Winters. On offense, Wade connected on a follow up shot. Atlee’s Gray momentarily broke the momentum, but Wade raced back and swished a three from the left wing. “I told him, that was your deal right here,” Brown said of Wade. “He got us going, making those big shots at the end. When one player gets it going, that’s when everybody decides to turn it up at the same time.” One of those players who got going was Hanover’s Blake Billups. Billups finished the night with two points, two rebounds, three assists, one steal but his greatest contributions were not recorded on the stat sheet. Billups was aggressive on defense, diving after balls on the floor and creating a nuisance for the Atlee players. “Blake is another one of the guys that came off the bench,

bring us that energy and bring that fire, definitely on the defensive end,” Thornton said. “He’s very quick…He really stepped up for us tonight.” When Billups nailed a short jumper with 19 seconds on the clock, the teams were tied at 42. The Hawks had to overcome adversity again to start the fourth when Josh Harris was whistled for a technical foul between quarters. Miller made both free throws and Hanover trailed once again before the clock ever started running. It appeared Atlee would once again pull out to a marginal lead when Randolf drilled a wide open three off an inbounds play and Miller added two free throws for a 53-48 Raider lead with 4:48 to play. But Donte Haynesworth scored on a plus-one field goal and Hanover clicked up the defensive dial again, allowing only three more Atlee points over the remainder of the

game. It was then Elliott’s turn to follow in Wade’s footsteps. Elliott scored on a reverse layup and Brown added a steal and layup to give Hanover the lead 55-54 with 3:06 to play. Atlee momentarily retied the game on a Hendricks’ free throw but Elliott roared back with a reply, scoring on a jumper, two free throws and a layup to put Hanover on top to stay 61-55. “It started real slow but the second half we picked up a lot and I really loved our intensity,” Wade said. “We just kept our head in it as a team and fought back and got the W. I’m just glad we got the win.” Also happy with the win, Thornton was likewise critical of his teams’ effort. “I do praise them because our guys showed great character coming back and fighting together, especially doing it on the defensive end,” he said. “But the frustrating

part was the little things that we didn’t do right, or work together early on in the game. “I think the energy was the biggest thing for us in that final quarter and just playing together on defense and really giving it out and kind of playing for one another,” Thornton said. “Backing each other up and just trusting each other on the defensive end and it really showed what we can do.”

Charlie Leffler/The Local

With Atlee’s offensive failures, Hanover managed to chip away at the lead. Omohundro drilled a three from the right wing, Norris connected on a pair of free throws and Omohundro connected again with five minutes remaining to pull the Hawks within three, 42-39. Soon afterward, Staples broke the Atlee drought and was fouled but missed the ensuing free throw. Blackwell then made the mistake of fouling Norris on a 3-point attempt, but the prolific Hanover shooter went 1-for-3 from the line. Still, the Hawks pulled down the rebound and Norris connected on a follow-up to trim the margin to two, 44-42 with four minutes remaining. Weaver widened the Atlee lead with a pair of free throws but Taylor Peay responded with a three from the right baseline to cut Atlee’s lead to one, 46-45. The Raiders responded, pushing the lead back to five on

a Shelton free throw and a plusone field goal from Staples. Then with 2:18 remaining, more strangeness took center stage. A battle for position between Lankford and Staples resulted in a double foul near the Atlee baseline. On the ensuing inbounds play, Staples fed the ball to Shelton for a wide open 3-pointer and a 53-45 lead. It was only after the shot, that officials realized Staples had fouled out on the previous call. Though she was removed from the game, the score stood. Still, the Atlee defense tightened up down the stretch to allow only a Norris 3-pointer with 46 seconds remaining as the Raiders escaped with the win. The frustration was evident for Collins. “We battle back and our leading scorer fouls out. Jeez, can anything else happen,” she said. “Then we come back down and miss layups that you know you’ve seen the kid make 1000 times before.”

For Atlee, the victory marked a turnaround from last season when they won only two district games. Collins feels the difference in the two teams, composed of virtually the same players, is their approach to the game. “Mental toughness was the difference in the game, has been a difference in the season for us,” she said. “It’s been the difference between last year and this year. There were several times that we could have folded…We could easily say, ‘We can’t beat them.’ Especially since they beat us twice last year.”

Atlee head coach LaTanya Collins calls out instructions.

“Come on, make your layups.” What followed can only be described as chaotic. Loose balls, tie-ups, turnovers, fouls and failures at the free throw line mounted. Over the first four minutes of the quarter, the two teams combined to commit seven fouls but produced a combined 2-for-10 from the stripe and missed on the front end of three one-and-ones.

Freshman clearing hurdles at Hanover Win in high school debut surprise to Haynesworth By Jordan Bondurant Richmond Times Dispatch Hanover freshman hurdler Leila Haynesworth has been running track since she was 7, and she has been competitive on every level. When she took to the starting blocks at Christopher Newport University on Jan. 4 for her first high school indoor track meet, though, Haynesworth wasn’t sure how she would do. But when the starter’s gun fired for the preliminaries and again for the final, she didn’t know she would run well enough to win the 55-meter hurdles and qualify for the Group AAA meet next month in Hampton with a time of 8.62 seconds. “I really didn’t expect to do so well,” Haynesworth said. “I had been sick in the days leading up to the meet, and on top

Hanover freshman hurdler Leila Haynesworth is off to a fantastic start in her high school track career. In her first meet, she won the 55-meter hurdles and qualified for the Group AAA state meet with a time of 8.62 seconds.

ning competitively when she was in the sixth grade. It was with the Richmond Heat Track and Field Club, competing at AAU meets, where she gained experience. Hopper is excited for the potential success that lies ahead for Haynesworth and the team. “Leila is one of our best natural athletes to come along in a very long time,” Hopper said. “She just possesses this unbelievable natural ability, and I think she is certainly capable of helping us out immensely.” Hopper said he hopes Haynesworth will take on a leadership role on the team in the future, but is not hurrying her. “We want her to keep getting accustomed to the whole high school experience,” he said. “There is still plenty of time for her to eventually take on a role as team captain, but right qualified for the state meet, but son,” Hopper said. “But she has now, we want her to focus on just so much natural talent that her skills as an athlete and conknew she was capable. vince her to use her previous “I was surprised that she had I knew she could do it.” Haynesworth began run- experience to explore other done it at this point in the sea-

events.” Her older brother, Donte, a standout wide receiver and defensive back at Hanover, also has done what he can to help her with training and encouragement. “Since we’re kind of on our own at practice, he’ll come and work with me afterwards,” Leila said. “He’s a big help. He’s one of the reasons I’ve become a better runner.” Looking ahead, Leila Haynesworth hopes to consistently run times like she ran at Christopher Newport. Her time of 8.62 makes her the fastest freshman in the state. At 5foot-8, she sees her height as an advantage and a disadvantage in the event, but continues to work on her starts and getting faster. “Being so tall, it’s easy for me to just step over the hurdles,” she said. “But with some of the shorter girls, they can get out of the blocks a lot quicker, and I have to work more on that. So it’s both a strength and a weakness.”

Yellow Jackets fall at Hampden-Sydney, beat Emory & Henry By Vic Dorr Jr. Richmond Times Dispatch HA M P DE N - SY DN EY It wasn’t pretty. But then, Hampden-Sydney’s Tigers didn’t expect it to be pretty. H-SC built a 17-point lead early in the second half and hung on to defeat archrival Randolph-Macon 70-60 in Wednesday’s ODAC basketball game in boisterous Fleet Gym. The Tigers’ second-half surge was one of few compelling offensive statements in a game that was more often ragged than artistic. “You had two really good teams who were very well prepared for each other and who happen to be committed to defense,” Tigers coach Dee Vick

said. “A game like this can get ugly. You take away each others’ best plays. We had to find ways to counter them after they countered us. You have to be patient and you have to be disciplined to win a game like this. And for the most part, we were.” Junior post player Khobi Williamson scored 15 points on 5-of-6 shooting for HampdenSydney. Junior wing Keegan Wetzel added 13 and senior forward Harrison George scored 12. The Tigers (14-2, 6-1) never trailed but were seldom comfortable. The emotion inherent in the H-SC vs. R-MC rivalry was at least partially responsible. “We talked about it before the game,” Williamson said. “It’s

fun to play in a game like this, but there’s also a lot of pressure. Emotion is high. Expectations are high. You’re not just playing for you. You’re playing for everybody who’s worn the (HSC) jersey before you.” Randolph-Macon (8-8, 3-4) crept to within seven with just under two minutes remaining, but Hampden-Sydney kept the visitors at arm’s length by sinking seven of its last eight free throws. Forward Andre Simon scored 14 points for the Yellow Jackets. Guard Connor Sullivan added 10. Randolph-Macon shot 32 percent (8-25) in the second half — a meager harvest that included 0 for 8 from beyond the 3-point stripe.

Hampden-Sydney started impressively, scoring on six of its first eight possessions and surging to a 12-2 lead. Its prosperity, however, was short-lived. Erratic ballhandling and shaky transition defense by the Tigers soon beckoned the Yellow Jackets back into the game. Momentum swung like a pendulum thereafter, visiting first one bench and then the other. A 9-0 Yellow Jackets run allowed the visitors to pare their deficit to 28-27 with 3:37 remaining until halftime. HampdenSydney met the threat head-on. Lewis’ second 3-pointer of the half at 2:21 and Wetzel’s drive from the right baseline nudged the Tigers into a four-point advantage. Simon answered for

Randolph-Macon at 1:05, but H-SC’s Cam Anderson buried soft one-handed bank shot from the right side at :50 to send Hampden-Sydney into intermission with a 35-31 lead. R-MC bounced back with a 79-58 win at Emory & Henry on Saturday. The Yellow Jackets scored the first nine points of the game and raced out to a 21-4 lead midway through the first half. The Jackets’ defense allowed E&H to shoot just 28.1% from the field during the half. Holmes finished the game with a career-high 18 points on 8-of-12 shooting from the floor and pulled down a career-best 11 rebounds for his first collegiate double-double.

Giggetts joined Homes in double-figures with 14 points. Sullivan had nine points, while Cole and Badger each had eight points for R-MC. R-MC will be back in action at home on Wednesday when it hosts league rival Washington and Lee at 7 p.m. RANDOLPH-MACON (8-8, 34 ODAC) — Simon 14, Giggetts 9, Cole 5, Badger 9, Sullivan 10, Robinson 0, Jackson 0, Walker 4, Hamilton 0, Holmes 9.

January 23, 2013

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, it can be easy to get into a routine and then in a rut. Try switching up just one thing from your daily tasks, and it could provide a breath of fresh air.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, though you may be pinching pennies that doesn’t mean you cannot make a purchase that will benefit the household. Make a budget so you’ll learn how to spend wisely.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, take advantage of the many opportunities for you to meet new people and forge new friendships this week. You may just meet someone who changes your life.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 You may need to subscribe to a new way of thinking, Gemini. The way you have been doing things lately is not working out too well. Ask a family member for advice.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, too much of a good thing can make it difficult to focus on other tasks and responsibilities. Make the effort to stay focused so you don’t find yourself falling behind.

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, you will likely find yourself in a domestic groove over the next few days. Use the time to get creative in the kitchen, straighten up the abode and do some decorating. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, don’t allow your emotions to get the best of you during a disagreement this week. Be sure to gather all of the facts before you form an opinion. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, this is the perfect week to correct any wrong impressions you might have made. Be overly generous with all the people you meet.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, speak up if you don’t like the way something is being done. Change can’t happen if you don’t voice your opinion, so overcome your reservations. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, if you want to broaden your horizons you will have to explore beyond your comfort zone. It may not always be comfortable, but it can be adventurous. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, you have many questions, but not enough answers are coming your way. Delve a little deeper this week.

THIS WEEK’S ANSWERS

CLUES ACROSS 1. Point that is one point E of due S 4. Slithered 8. Brain and spinal cord (abbr.) 11. Direct the steering of a ship 13. Chops with irregular blows 15. Plural of hilum 16. Incline from vertical (geo.) 17. Simple word forms 18. Paddles 19. Roman garment 21. Meat skewers 23. Ethiopia (abbr.) 25. The cry made by sheep 26. Beatty-Benning movie 30. Concealed 33.

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, patience and calm is the way out of a tricky situation. You also may want to keep your opinions to yourself until everything gets settled, which shouldn’t take long.

Healthy Living | Your life in balance

A new year brings opportunity for a NEW YOU

T

he new year is widely accepted as a time to start fresh, and every year people make resolutions to better themselves. For many, this means vowing to make lifestyle changes to improve how they look and feel. However, sticking to restrictive diets and intense workout programs can be difficult and not sustainable for most people. Before you get hooked by the annual flood of diet tips and gym promotions, focus on a few key areas to commit to a healthier lifestyle for 2013.

Consume whole foods Adding more whole foods into your everyday diet is a natural way to obtain the nutrients your body craves without feeling like you’re making a drastic change. One of the easiest ways to do this is by incorporating fresh juices into your daily routine. Whole-food juicing is a quick and easy way to get several servings of fruits and vegetables at once, making it a perfect on-the-go solution for those juggling hectic schedules. Simply toss whole fruits, vegetables, or a combination of both into a high-performance blender like a Vitamix, and then add ice. In seconds, you’ll have a delicious, nutrient-packed beverage, plus the fiber from the whole foods to keep you full longer. A variety of recipes to suit any taste is offered at Vitamix.com, making eating more whole foods something you’ll actually enjoy.

Add more exercise It’s not unusual for a person to drive from a desk job to the drive-thru at a fast food restaurant, and then go directly to the couch to watch television. It isn’t surprising that lack of exercise is an issue for many Americans, and a sedentary lifestyle can lead to a number of health concerns, regardless of weight. Incorporating exercise into a daily routine is important and can have many health benefits. To begin living a more active lifestyle, experts recommend starting slowly and building up length and intensity of physical activity. You don’t need to spend hours at the gym to reap the benefits of exercise; use the stairs, go for a walk, take a bike ride, or play with your dog or children to get moving and start looking and feeling better.

Rest up Although jam-packed schedules make it seem like there aren’t enough hours in the day, it’s extremely important to set aside enough time to rest and recharge. Getting the recommended seven to eight hours of sleep each night allows for optimal mental and physical performance, and making sleep a priority can have significant impact on overall well-being. To enjoy the many benefits adequate sleep offers, adopt a bedtime routine at the same time each

Easy ways to lower your cholesterol (BPT)

H

Metro Creative

Daily physical activity, including walking, is one easy way to reduce your cholesterol levels as well as your risk for heart disease.

igh cholesterol is an issue for many men and women, who may or may not know that excessive cholesterol in the blood can increase a person’s risk of cardiovascular disease. That’s a genuine concern for many people, as the American Heart Association notes that cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Statistics Canada reports that heart disease accounted for 21 percent of all deaths in 2008 (the most recent year for which statistics were available), placing it behind only cancer among the leading causes of death in Canada. The link between high cholesterol and cardiovascular disease has long since been established, but the good news is that even men and women with considerably high cholesterol levels can greatly reduce their risk of

one day developing cardiovascular disease. Some may need the help of prescription medication to lower their cholesterol, while others might only need to make certain lifestyle changes to lower their cholesterol. Men and women should discuss a plan of attack to lower their cholesterol levels with a physician, who will determine if medication should be a part of the plan. Even if medication is a factor, the following are some lifestyle changes men and women with high or moderate cholesterol levels can make to reduce their risk of cardiovascular disease.

Shed those extra pounds According to the Mayo Clinic, losing as little as 5 to 10 percent of your body weight can greatly reduce cholesterol levels. There are a number of ways to lose weight, but the most successful way to lose weight and keep it off typically involves adopting a more active lifestyle and coupling that with a healthy diet. The AHA recommends 30 minutes of physical activity each day. This can include any number of activities that get you off the couch and exercising, including walking, biking, swimming, and jogging. An additional benefit of exercising to lose weight is that

it can raise your so-called “good” cholesterol (also known as highdensity lipoprotein, or HDL), which can protect you against a heart attack. Many medical experts believe HDL carries cholesterol away from the arteries and back to the liver, where the cholesterol is then passed from the body.

Embrace hearthealthy foods One of the more effective, yet often most difficult, ways to lower cholesterol is to make dietary changes, forgoing unhealthy fare for more heart-friendly foods. The idea of changing one’s diet does not appeal to many people, but a more heart-healthy diet does not have to be devoid of taste. You can still eat red meat and dairy products, but keep them to a minimum, as both red meat and dairy can raise your “bad” cholesterol. Also known as low-density lipoprotein, or LDL, bad cholesterol can combine with other substances to form plaque, a thick, hard deposit that can narrow the arteries and make them less flexible, increasing one’s risk of heart attack and stroke. Red meat and dairy tend to have a good deal of saturated fat, which the Mayo Clinic suggests should account for less than 7 percent of your daily caloric intake.

There are many ways to make more heart-healthy dietary choices, some of which include selecting whole grains (including whole wheat pasta and whole wheat flour), loading up on fruits and vegetables that are high in fiber (which can lower cholesterol) and choosing entrees for foods that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, such as certain types of fish, which help lower LDL cholesterol.

Stop smoking Smokers have a surefire way to reduce their cholesterol, though some may find it more difficult than making any dietary changes. Quitting smoking has an almost immediate impact on the health of your heart, which is at a lower risk of attack within 24 hours of quitting smoking. Within one year of quitting, your risk of heart attack is half that of someone who continues to smoke, and in 15 years your risk of heart disease will be similar to that of someone who has never smoked. In addition, quitting smoking may improve your HDL cholesterol level. Though it might not be easy, quitting smoking might be the most effective way to improve your cholesterol levels while lowering your risk for cardiovascular disease. More information about lowering your cholesterol is available at www.heart.org.

Exercising outside of the box Simple ways to incorporate exercise into your daily routine

E

xercise is an essential element of a healthy lifestyle. When coupled with a healthy diet, exercise puts men and women on a path toward optimal health while reducing risk for a host of ailments, some of which can be deadly. But many people find they simply don’t have the time to exercise regularly. Commitments to career and family can be demanding and time-consuming, and exercise

is often a casualty of a hectic schedule. Though getting to the gym every day or even making use of exercise equipment at home on a daily basis may not be feasible, that doesn’t mean people still can’t find ways to incorporate a little exercise into their daily routines. The following are a few simple ways to fit more exercise into your day no matter how busy you may be.

Avoid the elevator, and attack the stairs The elevator may be inviting, but it’s also somewhat of an enabler. Instead of taking the elevator up to your office each day, take the stairs, and take them with more gusto than you’re used to. Rather than taking one step at a time, take the stairs two by two, lifting your legs high as you scale each pair of steps. This helps build your

Turn TV time into treadmill time Watching a little television at night is how many people relax and unwind, but it can be a great time to squeeze in some daily exercise as well. Opinions as to what’s the best time of day to exercise vary, and no definitive study exists to suggest one time of day is better than another. People who like to relax with a little television time at night should make the most of that time by hitting the treadmill, elliptical machine or exercise bike instead of just plopping down on the couch. Add a television to your home’s exercise room or purchase a gym membership where the cardiovascular machines are connected to televisions. You will still get to enjoy your favorite shows while simultaneously getting the benefit of exercise.

a great way to incorporate more walking into your life. Walking is a simple yet effective cardiovascular exercise, one that the Mayo Clinic notes can lower your blood pressure and manage your weight while lowering your low-density lipoprotein, which is commonly referred to as “bad” cholesterol. In fact, research has indicated that regular, brisk walking can be just as effective at lowering a person’s risk of heart attack as more vigorous exercise, including jogging. When parking far away from the entrance, just make sure you park in a well-lit area where others can easily see or hear you. Many adults find they simply don’t have the time to commit to routine exercise. But there are several simple ways to incorporate exercise into your existing routine without taking time from your already busy day.


Make your favorite recipes healthier have to be replaced. In the case of the latter, find a suggested alternative to high-fat items, and only use half of the highfat item listed in the original recipe. Chances are you won’t taste the difference, but your body will be better for it.

Substitute healthier fare Substituting items is another way to turn a favorite dish into a healthier dish without altering the flavor dramatically, if at all. For example, instead of cooking with enriched pasta, purchase whole-wheat or whole-grain pastas, which are higher in fiber and lower in calories. If a recipe calls for using milk, choose fat-free milk instead of whole milk. Doing so reduces your fat intake by nearly 8 grams per cup.

Change your methods

Using nonstick cookware when preparing your favorite meals can reduce reliance on oil or butter, cutting fat and calories from your diet.

Certain cooking techniques are healthier than others. Frying foods or cooking with fat, oil or salt is not the healthiest way to prepare a meal. Some of your favorite dishes that call for frying or cooking in oil can be just as flavorful if you opt for healthier methods like braising, broiling, grilling, or steaming.

When recipes call for basting foods in oil or drippings, forgo these unhealthy options and baste foods in vegetable juice or fat-free broth instead. What you use to cook can also be healthy or unhealthy. Nonstick cookware won’t require you to use oil or butter to keep foods from sticking to the pan. This reduces the

amount of fat and calories you will consume, and you likely won’t notice a difference with regards to flavor. Men and women who enjoy food and cooking their own meals can take several steps to make those meals healthier without sacrificing flavor. —Metro Creative

Did you know? There are many health benefits associated with vegetarianism. Research indicates that vegetarians have lower levels of LDL, or “bad” cholesterol, and obesity rates are generally lower among vegetarians than their meat-eating counterparts. In addition, vegetarians have reduced incidences of type 2 diabetes and lower blood pressure than meat eaters. However, unless their diets are well balanced, vegetarians also may have low levels of protein, which can compromise their overall health. Protein is essential to build and repair bodily tissues and provide amino acids. Muscle, hair, skin, and connective tissue are mainly made up of protein, as are several important chemicals in the body, including hormones, enzymes and neurotransmitters. Proteins are made up of amino acids. There are some amino acids that cannot be produced by the body and must come from a protein-rich diet. Many of the foods that contain protein are animal-based (meats, poultry, milk, eggs, etc.), and these foods are commonly avoided by

Recipes can even be made healthier by simply cutting back on the main dish and adding more vegetables. Instead of using the recommended amount of meat or chicken, scale back and make up for it with additional vegetables, which reduces your caloric and fat intake while adding more vitamins and minerals to your diet.

The amount of protein needed varies by one’s body weight, age and activity level. A person who is 150 pounds should eat roughly 55 grams of protein each day. A 200-pound person should eat around 75 grams. An ounce of meat has around 7 grams of protein per serving. Therefore, vegetarians will have to replace those grams with other sources of protein.

Fat can help your body absorb vitamins A, D, E and K, and replacing fat with something like carbohydrates decreases how much these valuable vitamins are absorbed. In addition, dietary fat releases chemicals in the brain that make you feel full, reducing the likelihood that you will overeat. Those are just a few of the benefits of dietary fat, which is an essential element of a healthy diet. But overconsumption of dietary fat can be dangerous, and many people simply need to trim some fat from their diets. One way to do that is to reduce how much butter, shortening or oil you use when cooking. For some recipes, you may be able to cut suggested portions of such ingredients by half without Trim the fat replacing them; however, for No one wants to eat fat, but others, especially those for fat isn’t entirely bad for you. baked goods, these items may

healthy diet plays a significant role in a person’s overall health. Without a healthy diet, men and women are more susceptible to disease and other potentially harmful ailments. But when many people think of a healthy diet, a lack of flavor is often one of the first things to come to mind. That’s a common misconception, as a diet that’s healthy and full of nutrients can simultaneously be flavorful. In fact, it’s easy to enjoy many of your favorite dishes in a way that makes them much healthier. Oftentimes, a few minor alterations to a recipe is all it takes to turn the dish from high-risk to healthy.

Eating a nutritious breakfast is as easy as 1-2-3 D (BPT)

espite good intentions to prepare a nutritious breakfast, it’s often tempting to grab something on the run, only to fall flat when it comes to nutrition and energy. Yet making a nutritious breakfast is as easy as 1-2-3, accord-

ing to Chef Devin Alexander, a health and wellness expert and best-selling author. “When you start the day with coffee and a pastry, your blood sugar peaks quickly and then it crashes, which may send you for another sugary snack, adding empty calories, fat and sugar

to your diet. But if you include three simple components - protein, whole grains and fruit you’ll kick-start your day and feel satisfied until lunch,” she says. Here are Chef Alexander’s three simple steps to a better breakfast:

Step one: protein A key component of a better breakfast is protein. The Institute of Health’s Dietary Reference Intake recommendations allow anywhere from 10 percent to 35 percent of total calories for normal healthy adults. “Most Americans struggle to take in enough protein to make up 35 percent of their daily calories,” Alexander says. “One way to stay satisfied all morning is to add protein to your diet as part of breakfast.” A recent survey of bacon-eating consumers found that bacon

is the most popular breakfast protein, with taste cited as the No. 1 factor that sets it apart from sausage and ham. Despite a love affair with bacon, however, 40 percent of respondents also listed fat content and sodium levels as their most important concerns when selecting bacon. If you want to enjoy delicious bacon flavor and crisp texture, but with less sodium and fat than pork bacon, JennieO offers a new and improved turkey bacon, a product with 60 percent less fat and sodium than conventional pork bacon, according to USDA data. Eggs, another source of protein, were cited as the most popular food to eat with bacon, according to survey respondents. If you want the protein but without saturated fat and cholesterol, there are a variety of egg substitutes and egg whites available that work great in breakfast recipes.

Step two: high fiber carbs

Step three: fruits and berries

“It’s a myth that all carbohydrates are bad,” says Alexander. “Carbohydrates that deliver fiber and nutrients, like fruit and whole grains, provide energy, and the best ones also deliver high fiber to help digestion. With high-fiber choices, your body is using up 25 percent of the high-fiber food’s calories just to digest it, and it’s going to fill you up, too.” High-fiber choices abound for breakfast, from whole grain breads and muffins to hot or cold cereals. Jazz up these choices for added nutrition and flavor. For example, try topping oatmeal with dried fruits such as raisins or apricots, or even unsalted nuts. Top a whole wheat English muffin with chunky peanut butter and a sliced banana for a satisfying treat.

Fruit and berries pack in a host of nutrients including vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, plus fiber. And because of their high water content, you can eat more of them than denser fruits. For instance, you can enjoy a full cup of berries versus half of a banana or half of a large apple for the same number of calories. Blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and blackberries are all good choices, as the richer the color, the more antioxidants and vitamins they will have. During the winter when it’s harder to get fresh berries, buy freshly frozen berries and keep them on hand to incorporate into breakfast. So have fun. Toss them on cereal. Add them to yogurt for a flavorful parfait. Fold them into pancake batter, and flip with happiness.

New year, new vision: see clearly in 2013 T (BPT)

he beginning of the year is the most popular time for eye exams and a great time to assess if your corrective lenses are the best fit for you. See 2013 clearly with healthy eyes by following these five simple tips from optometrist, Dr. Tamara Dunn. --

Did you know? A new study in the journal Neurology suggests that working out is the most effective way to protect the brain from Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers studied roughly 700 study participants from Scotland, all of whom were born in 1936. Each participant reported their levels of leisure and physical activity at age 70, rating their physical activity on a scale from moving only to perform household chores to participating in heavy exercise or competitive sport several times per week. Participants were also asked to rate how often they engaged in social or intellectual activities. At age 73, participants received an MRI to measure certain biomark-

ers in their brains. Those who participated in more physical activity showed less brain shrinkage and fewer white matter lesions, both of which can be signs of Alzheimer’s disease. And while social and intellectual activities can be beneficial in preventing Alzheimer’s disease, the study found that social and intellectual engagement weren’t as helpful to the brain as physical exercise. The types of physical exercise most beneficial to the brain are still being studied, though information presented at the 2012 Alzheimer’s Association’s International Conference suggested that strength training is perhaps the most effective form of exercise.

1. Start with an eye exam Our eyes age and change just like the rest of our bodies, so it is important to get them checked annually. Even if you already have corrective lenses, ensure you are caring for your eyes properly with an eye exam. Beyond a simple vision screening, the American Optometric Association also recommends that everyone receive a regular comprehensive eye exam to detect potentially serious eye issues to support overall eye health.

2. Good health supports good vision As you kick off resolutions to “get healthy,” did you know that you are also supporting your eye health? The healthier you are the better chance you have to avoid complications with your eyes. For example, eating a balanced diet that includes dark green vegetables with lutein like spinach and kale can help to reduce your risk of age related vision loss.

Eye care professionals recommend that you wear full spectrum UVabsorbent sunglasses whenever you are in the sun for hours at a time. If you wear contact lenses, remember that contact lenses by themselves may not protect your eyes from UV light so you may still need to supplement by wearing sunglasses.

4. Eye glasses or contact lenses?

Vision is as unique as the color and shape of your eyes, so work with you eye care professional to decide which type of corrective lens - glasses or contact lenses - is best for you.

5. Keep eye health simple The beginning of a new year is a busy time for doctor appointments. Ease eyeappointment stress by finding a one-stop solution for all your eye care needs. Independent Optometrists operate private offices located adjacent to nearly 3,000 Walmart Vision Centers and Sam’s Club Optical Centers and provide comprehensive eye exams, lens fittings and prescriptions by appointment and on a walk-in basis. The recent launch of a new online and phone contact lens program by Walmart and Sam’s Club also reduces prices on contact lenses from many top brands and delivers lenses directly to your home. For additional information on the new contact lens program or to place an order, visit WalmartContacts.com or call 800-741-LENS(5367), SamsClub.com/contacts or call 800-749-LENS(5367), or walk into any location with vision services.

IT!

If you are reading this, you are exactly where I was a year ago. Not happy with your reading on the scale or how your clothes look as you see yourself in the mirror each morning. You look in the mirror and wonder how you got this big. You wonder how in the world you can go back to the weight before children came along. You can do it with the Skinny Richmond plan. I went for my yearly physical and my doctor told me it was time for blood pressure medicine. I said no thanks. He said then I needed to lose weight. So I made a commitment to myself that day to find a way to get rid of the fat and keep it off. I read an ad in the paper about losing weight quickly and painlessly with no drugs or purchased foods and I was skeptical. But I was ready to do something and I needed to lose around 90 pounds. I had tried many other times to count points, to drink things, to eat very little and nothing was the right fit for me. I saved the Before After ad and thought about going to the meeting but didn’t take any action. A few weeks later I decided to give it a try. I went and saw the video of others progress but still didn’t believe it would work for me. I went to my follow up and put a lot of thought into it before I joined the program. I was concerned that the program was just too good to be true. I asked about these concerns in the follow up and received information that enabled me to make my decision. I have been losing weight since September 17th, 2011. I work with a wonderful lady named Shannon who is my cheerleader and mentor. She is wonderful to talk to when I need info or to ask a question. I did my first 40 day round and lost 37 pounds. It was amazing. I followed the plan as I was asked to do and on my birthday in June I met my goal of 85 pounds. I went from a size 22 to a 12 in 9 months. People I work with all watched me disappear and cheered me along the way. Some of my friends have signed up and are now on the way down as well. I eat regular foods bought at Kroger and am not hungry all the time. The plan was easy and seeing the scale go down a pound a day was enough to keep me on track. My husband was pleased that he has me back to the weight before children. I feel better and when I went for my yearly physical my blood work was the best I had seen in twenty years. Blood pressure was down, and all my bad numbers were back down into the low normal range. My doctor spent more time asking about the program than we spent on my physical. When I went to pick my son up from college he was shocked to see how small I was. He had never seen me this size. He even posted something on his facebook page about my progress. Now you want to hear some numbers I guess. You weigh every day and take measurements once a week so I know what I did. Fifteen inches off my waist, five off each thigh, and everywhere else the fat disappeared. I do not have saggy skin, or ugly stretch marks. I went from 250lbs to 165lbs in 9 months. I am returning to the sports I used to play and enjoying new ones I have found. Notice there is no mention here of an intense exercise program. I lost the first 50 pounds with out any exercise. You can too. I did join a local gym because I wanted to get stronger for my own health. As I continued to shrink I got stronger with my weight lifting. So if you hate to exercise this is the program for you. The craziest thing is when I see someone who has not seen me for a year or more and they don’t even recognize me. I retired from teaching a year ago and when I went to middle school to substitute some of my elementary kids did not even know I was me until I spoke to them. I was finally ready to lose the weight and now I can shop and not try on the clothes in the store. When I put them on at home the 12’s always fit. There is only one negative to this plan. You will not be able to wear your old clothes any more. You will quickly lose sizes and not have much to wear on the way down to your goal weight. I cinched up my belts and wore baggy pants at times. I had saved a plastic tub of clothes for “when I lost weight.” When I got them out in February I was shocked that they were all too big as well. At this point, I don’t have many clothes that fit me for this coming fall and winter. So now you know the only negative thing about this plan. Read on the web about it at SKINNYRICHMOND.COM. I was skeptical just like you are right now. If you are ready, really ready to lose the weight, the Skinny Richmond plan can help you. Just remember that with any weight loss plan you will never be able to go back to eating the way you did before. I don’t even care about sodas and sugary things anymore. They don’t taste good. I can’t eat huge portions anymore because they make me uncomfortable. I am eating more healthfully and I know this change will enable me live longer. I want to be able to see my grandchildren someday. So what will you do? Come to a meeting. See for yourself where you can be in six months, call and make your appointment today 1-855-FAT-AWAY!!! If you just need to lose 20 pounds, you can do it in less than a month. Yes, one month, If you have thirty pounds to lose you can do it in less than two months. So think about it and when you are ready, come to see Shannon and she will guide you to the new you that is waiting under all that extra you. I did and I’m so glad I took that giant step in September. See you shopping this fall!
