By Jim Ridolphi for The Mechanicsville Local Following weeks of discussion and public comment, the Hanover County School Board approved a $188.7 million budget for 2013-2014 at a meeting on Thursday, Feb. 21. The board initialed a budget that was almost identical to the one proposed by Jamelle Wilson, superintendent of Hanover

County Public Schools, earlier this year. But, there were some revisions. Originally, 24 teaching positions were on the chopping block as school officials attempted to rectify a more than $5 million budget shortfall. Eight of those positions are restored in the final budget, funded by a transfer of funds from the schools’ Capital

The Local Pick:

Hanover High student honored as essay winner The Library of Virginia and Dominion Virginia Power have joined together to implement a new program to honor distinguished AfricanAmerican leaders for their important contributions to the state, the nation or their professions. A Hanover County student has been recognized for his 400-word essay in an annual writing contest. John Roakes was named the Central Regional Essay Winner for his entry in the new initiative, Strong Men & Women in Virginia History. Eight honorees will be recognized this year. A significant component of the joint venture was the student writing contest. Roakes’ essay outlined his pursuit to make a difference in the world. His narrative included one of the honorees, Nannie Mae Berger Hairston. As the award recipient, Roakes will receive a HP Pavilion laptop computer. His school, Hanover High, will be awarded $1,000. Roakes was recognized for his accomplishment during the Feb. 12 Hanover County School Board meeting. (Editor’s note: John Roakes’ award-winning essay follows.) They say that I am just a kid. That I can’t change anything. They say the world is a cruel and heartless place, and it is. In today’s world people are more concerned with their text messages than their neighbors. People are more worried about Jersey Shore than the bullying at local schools. But the real problem is not their ignorance, it is their indiffer-

ence. They play the “life is unfair card,” and move on. But not me. To change the world, it starts with a single person. That single person has to have the moral and emotional strength to stand up for what they believe in. One single act of bravery in the face of certain defeat can inspire a lasting change on the world. Rosa Parks didn’t move from her seat, Dr. King shared his dream with the world, and Barack Obama rewrote history. By overcoming the odds, and never giving up, these legendary people not only inspire millions, they serve as a blueprint on how to change the world. I believe that in order to change the world, I must first change myself. I have to be the Rosa Parks of my school. I have to refuse to give in to the bully, and the “accepted” way that things operate; I must challenge the wrongdoings of others in spite of the consequences. I have to be the Dr. King of my state, sharing my

voice and ideas with others. Not so that they can agree with me, but to inspire them to change their own lives and their own communities. Most importantly, I have to be the next Barack Obama of this great nation. I must inspire the nation to have hope, and to desire a change in the status quo. To change the world, I must have the strongest character and the desire to share it with the world. My greatest fear is not death, it is being forgotten after I die. To be remembered, you need one thing: a strong enough character to change the world. As Nannie Mae Berger Hairston once said, “I want children to remember that the most important part of your life is your character. It goes with you all through your life. I learned long ago that to make it a better world, it had to begin with me.” Information submitted by Linda M. Scarborough, Hanover County Public Schools communications specialist.

Mechanicsville native Kara Capelli, right, will soon embark on a cross-country bicycling trip with college buddy Meg Ausen, left.

Atlee grad to take journey of a lifetime By Jodi Deal jdeal@mechlocal.com Kara Capelli has a long road ahead of her – more than 3,500 miles in fact. When she and college friend Meg Ausen hit the road on March 2, they’ll have only their bikes and what they can carry with them. Their path? From Washington, D.C., to San Diego, Calif. Once they get there, they’ll decide whether they can muster the additional miles it will take to get to San Francisco. Capelli, a 2005 graduate of Atlee High School, said the trip is something she and Ausen, who met working together at a radio station while attending Cornell University, have always wanted to do. However, once

they both graduated and started careers, finding a few spare months with the right weather to be almost constantly outside proved to be a daunting task. That is, until now. Both women have reached a point of transition in their careers, and will have some lag time between jobs. Although both intensely enjoy biking, their trip won’t be just for them. Each has chosen a cause to promote and hopefully raise funds for along the way. Ausen will be supporting Surge For Water, a nonprofit that supports projects that provide access to safe drinking water. For Capelli, it’s Shared Hope see JOURNEY, pg. 8

OPINION | The Local Views From the editor

LETTERS

Being vocal makes a strong statement

| Reader Views

Whether you have actually stepped up to the podium and spoken your mind, or you have shared your opinions and thoughts on the pages of this newspaper, we are impressed by the motivation of our citizens when it comes to the future of one of the state’s best school systems. As County Administrator Cecil R. “Rhu” Harris Jr. prepares to present his budget to the Hanover County Board of Supervisors today, Hanover County Public Schools and the district’s continued success remain on the minds of many. You prove it week after week by participating in and attending the budget meetings and workshops. Now, just as was said a couple of weeks ago, we can’t get ahead of ourselves — or the decisions the supervisors face — until Jamelle Wilson, superintendent of schools, officially presents her 2013-2014 budget proposal to the board. The Hanover County School Board took action on her proposal on Thursday. In the meantime, and I’m sure parents, administrators and employees are more than a little anxious, we have to take a wait-and-see approach. Unfortunately, it shouldn’t come as any surprises if cuts are implemented. That’s a sad reality when funding sources change — and no one wants to see any job losses or programs eliminated or cut back. This writer can’t quite grasp this pay to play idea. I really don’t think School Board members want to see any student be placed in the position to have to decide whether they can afford to participate. And we all know many of our students depend on athletic scholarships to get a college education. No, there isn’t any second-guessing going on here. Just sitting back and observing — and, most of all, taking in your input and feedback. Those elected to serve and lead us seem to be listening (I want to believe they are listening) and will work with us as citizens. There’s no doubt that we all have the same goal: The best Hanover County possible. One that is prosperous and successful. And, without question, our schools play a major role in continuing in both directions. Melody Kinser

She is older and laid-back. She would be great for someone who is looking for an older dog. She loves everyone. She gets along with other dogs. Lady is looking for that home to call her own. She is up-to-date on all her shots and has been spayed. She is heartworm (negative). “Girly” is a 6-year-old female brown/white pitbull. She has lots of energy and just wants to run and play. She would be great for someone who is looking for that active dog to keep up with them. She loves everyone and does well with other dogs. She is looking for that special person to call her own. Girly is up-to-date on all her shots and has been spayed. She is heartworm (negative). For more information on adopting Nadia and Buzz or any of the other animals at the Hanover Pound, call 365-6485.

It made the cause very real to me, putting a face to the issue.” Ausen and Capelli are working on getting the gear they need, talking to others who have made cross-country bike trips, and reaching out to everyone they can within their family and friend groups, along with other networks like sororities and Cornell grads. After all, they’ll be looking for places to rest along the way. “We’ve gotten offers from all kinds of people to put us

up -- friends and family of our friends and family,” Capelli said. On nights the pair can’t find a guest bed, couch or floor, they’ll set up a tent and camp. Capelli said she and her travel companion plan to take all due precautions to ensure their safety. In addition to daily photo and text updates to Tumblr, Twitter and Facebook accounts, they’ll also keep multiple people aware of their whereabouts at all times. They’ll carry cell phones, and are considering purchasing GPS transponders so they can also be tracked by satellites. Flexibility will be key, Capelli said, as the two won’t know what weather, traffic, their own bodies and others will throw their way. “It’ll be different every night,” Capelli said. Their route will be along the southern portion of the country. Ausen is from Minnesota, so she hasn’t seen much of the

South, Capelli said. Meanwhile, Capelli is quite excited about the Southwest, which she hasn’t traveled much. From D.C., Ausen and Capelli will head through the Shenandoah Valley, down the Blue Ridge Parkway, then into Kentucky. From there, they’ll traverse Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, New Mexico and Arizona before crossing into California. For now, they hope to make it to San Francisco, but will stop to regroup in San Diego. To stay on track, they’ll need to go 50 to 100 miles per day. Capelli looks forward to taking in the scenery of the United States from a bicycle – a vantage point she said is different from any other. “It’s slower. It allows you more time to take in the scenery,” Capelli said. She added that biking allows you to interact directly with

Outlet mall could bring needed economic boost By Jim Ridolphi for The Mechanicsville Local

A

43-acre outlet mall planned for Hanover County could provide just the boost the local economy has been seeking. A California-based realty company announced plans earlier this month to open the first phase of an outlet center located near the Bass Pro Shop near Ashland by late 2014. Company officials said construction would begin once 50 percent of the property is pre-leased. The Winding Brook concourse was envisioned for

A California developer has purchased 43 acres near Bass Pro Shops to construct an outlet mall off Lewistown Road in Hanover. Steven Craig said the property, located in the Northlake Business Park, was chosen due to its close proximity to Richmond and Interstate 95.

similar project. Steven Craig, president and CEO of Craig Realty, said he chose the current site north of Lewistown Road after a site in the Winding Brook Concourse ran into problems with signage along Interstate 95. Craig Realty purchased the property from Northlake Land Investment and Dominion Land and Development, and plans call for a 390,000-squarefoot center complete with restaurants. But, the project’s proximity to Winding Brook could indicate positive developments for the entire area, according to Hanover Economic Director Edwin Gaskin. “The outlet mall location is in the Northlake Business Park, just across Lewistown Road from Winding Brook location,” Gaskin said. “That being said,

development picture that has remained gloomy throughout the economic downturn. “The economic impact of such a development really is very beneficial to Hanover, several multiples (in terms of tax revenues) of what alternative uses for that site might have produced,” Gaskin said. And the benefits don’t end at the outlet cash registers. “Beyond the fiscal impact thought, the development of the outlet mall will bring many, many visitors to that area.

This type and volume of traffic should inspire many other investments in that corridor along Lakeridge Parkway,” Gaskin said. He also said it’s a good opportunity for the county to do a bit of showing off. “It’s also a chance to show those visitors what a great community we are here in Hanover,” Gaskin said. “We look forward to seeing that area around the outlet mall project develop; it should be an exciting time for Hanover!”

According to Pace, while enrollment is down by 3 percent, employment is down by 11 percent. Pace said FOHS would continue to press for more funding and additional teachers as the budget process moves to the Board of Supervisors for final approval. “We don’t think it’s over. I think the board is considering trying to do something to restore the funds. They want to do the right thing, but finding a way is difficult,” he said. Gladstone said she was “satisfied” with this year’s adoption, but stressed the final document did not meet everyone’s desires. “We’re feeling the strain throughout the system,” the chair said.

Millican identified a list of eight priorities, some that could be addressed in the budget process and the remainder being forwarded to the Joint Education Committee. “What we could solve through the target budget that we had to work with, we would solve,” Millican said. “What we couldn’t solve, we would cost out and send to the committee.” That process was never intended to offer two budgets for consideration, according to Millican. Henry District School Board representative Earl Hunter said this year’s budget process seemed decidedly different from ones in his memory. “I too want to thank everyone involved in this process. It was different,” he said.

One of those differences was the immense number of citizens who came forward during the process. Hunter and his colleagues all applauded those efforts and encouraged interested parties to stay involved, and “don’t wait until next year to come back.” Cold Harbor District representative Robert Wood summed up those appreciative sentiments. “I’d like to say thank you to our constituents and the people of Hanover County,” he said. “They came to us and told us what they thought we needed, and they gave us support at the Board of Supervisors’ level as well.” Ashland District representative Hank Lowry said he was glad the staff eliminations noted in the final budget will not require layoffs, but will be satisfied with normal attrition. “We will continue providing quality education with quality teachers and that’s what our goal has been all along. Please don’t

disappear until next February,” Lowry said. Pace said he’s also pleased that the reductions will not require layoffs, but added that doesn’t deter from the fact that less teachers will be available to Hanover students. “That’s great that no one is getting laid off, but that doesn’t help the student who needs more resources in the classroom,” Pace said. All of the members commended Wilson and her staff for countless hours of preparation and research for this year’s process. “With the choices we had and the input we received, we’re in as good a place as we can possibly be,” Gladstone said. Hunter noted this was accomplished with a skeleton staff after five years of cuts, many of them in the Central Office. County Administrator Cecil R. “Rhu” Harris Jr. will present his budget to the Board of Supervisors today (Wednesday, Feb. 27), and the panel will consider its final approval in April. Pace said his group would remain active throughout that process. “We didn’t just come along and start a website for six weeks and go away,” Pace said. “We will regroup and be back.”

‘Hijacked’ session I am writing in response to Hanover County Board of Supervisors member Sean Davis’ town hall meeting he recently hosted at Rural Point Elementary School. First off, I thought it was a constituent meeting to update his constituents on the state of Hanover. The room was pretty much packed with teachers and county employees. I am certian less than half the attendees were actual district constituents. The meeting quickly turned into a “School Board meeting.” I personaly was offended by the “hijacking” of the meeting by the teachers. If they don’t like their job, see the School Board. Hanover can find plenty of young teachers eager to come work in Hanover. Sean also did a very good job articulating the removal of cash proffers and the benefits of which I agree with. School funding deficiencies and cash proffer removal are basically unrelated issues. I didn’t even know we had a teacher problem. Don’t goverment employees know we are in a recession still? Aren’t they

grateful they have good steady jobs? There are plenty of unemployed people who would love a chance to prove their usefulness in government jobs. We should bid these jobs out and not automatically give them away at high prices. Unfortunately, we all have to make sacrifices to get through this tough period of our history, cooperation and unity of purpose will win the day not hysteria and a warped sense of importance. I am more confident in Sean Davis as my supervisor than ever before and am very comfortable and grateful he is on the Hanover County Board of Supervisors. John Shinholser Henry District constituent Mechanicsville

Kudos to BOS on proffers reality So here’s a change of tune: Kudos to the Hanover County Board of Supervisors! They are finally starting to face reality when it comes to proffers and how Hanover will pay for the development boom headed its way. At a meeting last week of Hanover’s Community Development Committee and several supervisors, Mike Flagg, Hanover’s director of public works, gave an excellent presentation on Hanover roads and what elimination of proffers would mean. As Sgt. Friday [the law enforcement officer in the TV show “Dragnet”] would say, “It was just the facts, ma’am, just the facts.”

With maps, graphs and charts, Flagg pointed out that — even using the lowest growth projections — we are likely to add 7,000 homes in the next 15 years. At two cars per new home and 9.5 vehicular trips per day, Hanover’s roads will be broken unless we find a way to pay to upgrade them. As examples, Flagg pointed out that U.S. 54 will have to be widened to a four-lane road to accommodate the large developments already zoned for that area east of Ashland and he pointed out several Hanover roads are already “teetering on failure,” Pole Green and Atlee Station are my favorites. With the numbers staring them in the face, reality seemed to dawn on the supervisors. And as reality dawned, the backtracking began.

One supervisor said, we didn’t really get rid of proffers, we got rid of the proffer policy. Some lamented we couldn’t call any type of developer’s fee a proffer because, you know, it would sound bad. Others lamented that it looks like we’re going back. After that hand-wringing was over, supervisors got down to business and did the right thing. They agreed to send a proposal to the full board recommending that a fee (a proffer) be established for homes in developments of 50 or more homes. They also set the fee low, $2,306, but it can be negotiated upward for larger subdivisions with greater impact. That’s about half of what the proffer committee’s dissenting opinion recommended. But it’s a starting point.

You need have the same kind of sit-down with school officials so you can count those numbers just as you did for cars! Just as every house will generate on average two cars and 9.5 additional road trips a day, every house will generate on average 2.3 children. see LETTERS, pg. 17

PHHS class dedicates bricks to late classmates

Kit Taylor, left, and Addison Jones read the names of their departed classmates as engraved bricks were placed on the Patrick Henry High School grounds.

Several members of the Patrick Henry High School Class of 1964 recently gathered at the school to celebrate the lives of their departed classmates. M. Addison Jones Jr., executive vice president for the Supply Room Companies, and Kit Taylor, a retired registered nurse, from the class of 1964 spearheaded a project designed to provide a permanent monument in memory of former members of the Patrick Henry High School community. In 1999, an area in front of the school was designated as a

prominent place to honor former students, faculty and staff. The recent project led by Jones and Taylor expanded the memorial as bricks were placed in memory of individuals from 1964, 1965, 1966, 1968 and 1999 during a dedication ceremony held at the school on Nov. 2, 2012. Names of deceased students were read as family members placed a brick at the site in memory of their relatives. Dr. Wanda Bibb, principal of Patrick Henry High School, placed the brick personalized

Has it been long enough? In order to get a real accounting of the State of our Union all we have to do is take a good look at the actual numbers as it relates to our most urgent and pressing issues rather than listen to the mostly empty disingenuous words in a speech. In the 59 minutes President Obama spoke in his SOTU address, the national debt rose $124 million and the federal government spent $404 million. Of the 6419 words in the speech, he only mentioned the

word “debt” two times, “budget” four times, “spending” three times, “ObamaCare” one time, “sequester” one time, and did not even mention the word “unemployment” one single time. Numbers don’t lie. Wilma Royer Mechanicsville

What other alternatives do we have other than to raise property tax? If it affords us all three of the above needs, I for one am fine with paying more to receive a proper level of service.

I notice that citizens have advocated raising property taxes in order to strengthen our teacher positions in the county. At a town hall meeting last month, it also was pointed out that we as a county only have 12 deputies on duty overnight. Twelve.

vated malicious wounding. Law enforcement authorities said Wells was dealing marijuana from his home and arranged a $1,330 sale of four ounces of high-grade pot with the three

defendants, who were convicted of shooting Wells when the deal turned into a robbery. Prosecutors said Highsmith was the gunman in the case, but the other two were convicted of the murder and other charges because of the concerted nature of the crime among the three.

The wounding convictions resulted from a shot that injured a friend of Wells’ who tried to stop two of the young men from fleeing the house. Drayton, said to be the primary person involved in arranging the transaction, waited outside the home in a getaway car.

on the Founding Fathers’ circumstances, it had far more to do with enabling the citizenry to protect themselves against tyrannical government than against local psychopaths. It is about providing a balanced firepower so when King George’s successor came knocking on your door, you could fight back. Government today is no less inclined to abuse its authority than it was then. Based on the absurd and ongoing power grab that is present day Washington, it’s as threatening as ever. It is outrageous that we protect our money with far more firepower than we protect our children. I have never owned a gun, nor wanted to as intensely as right now. This tyrannical government will stop trying to restrict guns when only they have them. John Calhoun Mechanicsville

Fines less than insurance costs Remember when President Obama said that if you liked your health care plan you could keep it? Well, tell that to the seven million Americans who are about to lose their insurance! According to the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO), the new health care plan will push about twice the number of people off their job-based health plans than the agency originally predicted. CBO said, “that this year’s tax cuts have changed the incentives for businesses and made it less attractive to pay for insurance, meaning that fewer will decide to do so,” reports the WashingtonTimes. Thanks to the fiscal cliff deal, which takes away some of the tax breaks for providing health care, most employers

have come to the conclusion that it’s cheaper to pay the government’s fines for not providing insurance than to keep their current coverage. Unfortunately, this has been the ongoing saga of ObamaCare. The President promises one thing, and then the government confirms the exact opposite. And to think nobody read it before they passed it. What a mess! W.S. Wright Hanover

Living collapse of our culture

people have not received pay increases for some time. My property tax decreased in 2012 and now for 2013. The schools need to do more with less. I believe we have fewer students today than we did six years ago. It’s time to cut the budget and live within your means. During a recent Hanover County School Board meeting the people that spoke for the tax increase were self-serving. I know we can find many areas of the county’s budget that can be cut. If the board needs help to find the cuts, just call me, I can be very objective to cutting the county’s budget and do it for free! Just look at the high pay the school administrators are receiving year after year while the teachers take money out of their pockets to run a classroom. This is just one area. Salaries are just one area to save several million dollars. I have no skin in the game (except of paying property taxes). With more tax increases coming our way via ObamaVare, the state with the roads and even more new federal taxes, how much more can be taken out of our paychecks to satisfy the money pit of our local government? Did the county cut out the proffers so they can increase our property tax? Tom Chorinos Mechanicsville

did not meet the minimum improvements in test scores for the population as a whole (based on the state Adequate Yearly Progress requirements.) In fact, since 2008-2009 (when budget cuts began to be implemented) we have seen declines in our students’ SOL scores. Specifically, the HCPS pass rate has declined in 80 percent (32 of 40) of the SOL tests taken in 2011-2012. Also, the rate of students reaching Advanced Proficiency has declined in 75 percent (30 of 40) of SOL tests taken. Most troubling, the Fail Rate of our students increased in 72.5 percent (29 of 40) of SOL tests administered. Like Graduation Rates, strong SOL test results show that children have mastered the most basic knowledge, and these deteriorating scores are disheartening. When it comes to SAT scores, HCPS students score at about the state average (HCPS 1528 v. VA 1520). Of the 31 public high schools in the Metro area (Richmond City, Hanover, Henrico and Chesterfield), no Hanover school scored in the top 25 percent as of 2010 (the last year data was available for all districts). Hanover’s four high schools ranked 8th, 9th,

11th and 14th, scoring similarly to Henrico High School and worse than schools like Clover Hill, Midlothian and Freeman high schools. No Hanover high school grossly underachieved, but likewise no high school overachieved. The scores are average. The budget proposal submitted by superintendent Jamelle Wilson (based on the funding recommendation set forth by the county administrator in conjunction with the Board of Supervisors) will result in increased class size in our elementary schools despite the fact that studies (e.g., the Tennessee STAR study and others) have shown that smaller classes in K-3 help students achieve more as they get older even if class size increases later in their education. Additionally, the proposed budget includes making teachers in the high schools teach six classes instead of five. Although this results in reduced class size for high schools, which is a positive, it also has negative consequences. This change in schedule reduces the amount of time any individual subject is taught (less depth of knowledge,) while at the same time increases the total number of students each teacher must teach (less individualized attention.) Is the Hanover Way a pathway to mediocrity? Our test scores are average

and declining in several areas. The status quo is not good enough. We need a holistic approach, and the onus is on everyone in the community; parents, businesses, teachers, administrators, board members and students to look for ways to improve our school system. If more money is needed for technology, to improve educational content, to reduce class size, all of which will lead to improvements in our children’s education, then it is our obligation to do it. And, yes, that might mean raising taxes. If we have teachers that are underperforming, then we need to give them opportunities to improve their craft through training, or we need to find better teachers. If, as parents, our choice is to read to our children 15 extra minutes each night, or sit in front of the television for 15 extra minutes, then we must choose the former. We can all agree that the Hanover Way has never meant mediocrity, nor has it meant “doing more with less” at the expense of the long-term success of our community. However, accepting this proposed budget does precisely that, by foregoing the long term needs of the community at the expense of our children’s future.

Bruce- Sommerville


PGES sets out on reading voyage By Jodi Deal jdeal@mechlocal.com Students at Pole Green Elementary School had a mystery to solve last week. It all started with a nighttime assembly held during a ParentTeacher Association meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 19. “Your job, boys and girls, is to listen to the clues tonight,” assistant principal Leslie Luck told students in the crowd. “Listen to the songs. Listen to the words. Think about what they mean.” A group of second graders then took the stage and sang a series of songs about America, recycling and conservation. That performance, repeated the next morning for the whole school, kicked off a series of Reading Month activities that

will be centered around a single book. Every family in the school will get a copy of “A River Ran Wild” by Lynne Cherry, along with activities and lessons to complete together. The books come courtesy of a nearly $2,400 grant from the Hanover Education Foundation, Luck said. She added that librarian Karen Bryant wrote the successful grant. The school-wide program is based on the popular “One Book, One School” movement. Luck said students from kindergarten to fifth grade would enjoy the book, which, she added, is small – not a chapter book. Students had until Friday to enter their best guesses as to the title of the book they’d be reading. All correct guesses were

tion of what is good management. Excellent management must always plan for transitions in whatever manner they present themselves. During this difficult time of employment, the quality and number of applicants are at an all time high. With the HCPS record on safety in the work environment, our schools are a magnet for the best professionals in the K12 education pool of teachers. I have enclosed a reply from the county’s HR department on this matter to substantiate the above accolades. The e-mail from HCPS Human Resources Department with stats is as follows: Mr. Walker: Using your definition of “active viable applicants,” I am supplying the requested statistics. I feel the need to share a little about our process, however. Candidates may complete an application for any position at any time, however, some positions (administrators, clerical, maintenance, etc.) are posted for a limited window of time during which the applicant must add that position number to their application in order to be considered for screening and potential interview. Other positions are nearly always open and screened/interviewed yearround. These positions include year-round applications; approximate number of current applicants – teachers, transportation, instructional assistants and custodians; and currently posted vacancies with application deadline; and approximate number of current applicants – HR administrative assistant II. ✓ Teachers, 65.

✓ ransportation (bus driver, car driver, attendant), 40. ✓ Instructional Assistants, 20. ✓ Custodians, 6. ✓ HR Administrative Assistant II, 8. Many of our applicants who have been screened and interviewed and generally ready for offer have been hired to work in another capacity — such as teacher applicants who are working as instructional assistants or substitute teachers. We currently have over 700 substitutes for various positions — sub teachers, sub assistants, sub custodians, sub food service assistants, sub drivers, etc. Finally, the numbers provided include applicants who have been HR screened and interviewed and generally ready and available now for offer should the hiring manager (principal, supervisor) select the individual as the best fit for the position. A contingent offer is made and the applicant must then pass a background check and receive final approval from the School Board. I hope this information is helpful to you. Joni L. Shelton, PHR Director of Human Resources Hanover County Public Schools Having looked at this data what is not apparent is the “active viable applicants “ for the administrative positions which according to the county website number around 100 central office staff. I do trust you have this matter covered equally proficiently for the above administrative positions. Oscar Walker Citizens for Effective Educational Administration Mechanicsville

Hanover County residents who are elderly or permanently disabled with a net worth of $200,000 or less are invited to sign up for the county’s real estate tax relief program. March 1 is the deadline to apply for this program in time for the relief to be applied to the tax bills sent out later this spring. Applicants must be 65 years old or permanently disabled and must own or partially own the property and have lived in it on Dec. 31, 2012. If the applicant is in a hospital or extended care facility, he or she may still qualify as long as the house is not rented or leased.

The $200,000 net worth figure does not include the value of the house and up to 10 acres around it. The home’s owners can have a combined gross annual income of up to $50,000 and still qualify. The income of relatives living in the home is counted except for the first $10,000 of the relative’s income, which is exempted. If an applicant qualifies for 100 percent tax relief, they pay no real property taxes on that qualified parcel. About 1,550 households currently participate in Hanover County’s tax relief for the elderly and disabled program. The aver-

Members of The 100 Club recently donated $5,000 to the Hanover County Sheriff’s Office Foundation to benefit Scott Towne, who was paralyzed from the waist down in 2009 from an injury he sustained while off-duty. Towne retired as a sergeant due to his disability, but was later rehired as a civilian and serves as a training specialist. Towne will apply these funds towards renovating his master bathroom, which he has been unable to use since 2009. The 100 Club of Metropolitan Richmond was organized in 1989, with the help of the Retail Merchants Association, to provide financial support to police officers, firefighters and emergency medical service professionals in times of crisis and need.

R-MC earns ODAC title and NCAA bid

By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com On Sunday afternoon, the Randolph-Macon men’s basketball team earned their fourth consecutive trip to the NCAA Tournament by defeating Va. Wesleyan 75-64 in the ODAC championship game in Salem. On Monday afternoon, R-MC learned where that victory would carry them with the NCAA pairings were announced. On Mar. 2, the Yellow Jackets will travel to the Bronx, N.Y. where they will play Stevens Institute of Technology at Lehman College. The Hoboken, N.J. school enters the tournament with 22-5 record having lost to Ithaca College 7055 in the Empire 8 Conference championship. At selection time, RandolphMacon head coach Nathan Davis related his knowledge of the Yellow Jackets’ upcoming opponent. “Nothing,” he said. “By tomorrow afternoon we’ll know a lot more.” The Ducks are led by a trio of double-digit scorers, 61 senior guard Sheldon Jones (17.2 ppg), 5-10 senior guard Russ Thompson (14.4) and 66 sophomore forward Patrick Sabatino (13.5). On the season, Stevens averaged 72.2 points per game while holding opponents to 62.8 points and 38.5 percent shooting. Randolph-Macon has posted similar numbers this season scoring 70 points per game while holding opponents to 60.8 points .378 percent shooting

Likewise both schools send teams of similar makeup to the floor. Like Randolph-Macon, Stevens only has two seniors on the roster. However, where the Yellow Jackets see a significant amount of playing time taken by sophomores or freshmen, five juniors play key roles for the Ducks. Where the Yellow Jackets should hold a significant edge in experience playing against topnotch competition. R-MC played the fifth toughest schedule in the nation and came away with a winning record. Over the course of the season, the Jackets played 11 games against teams that are in the NCAA field coming away with a 5-6 record. Three of those losses came in the first week of the season. In comparison Stevens played five games against the NCAA field, three of those contests against league rival Ithaca. Also, R-MC won the ODAC championship in a year where the league sent four teams on to the NCAA tournament. Besides the Yellow Jackets,

Patriots’ Travis Phillips takes state title By Jordan Bondurant Richmond Times-Dispatch HAMPTON — Patrick Henry hurdler Travis Phillips and Douglas Freeman sprinter Mackenzie Kerr apparently believe in saving their best for last. Phillips and Kerr waited until the final meters of their respective races to make dramatic passes, and both emerged as individual state champions on Saturday’s final day of competition at the VHSL Group AAA Indoor Track and Field Championships at the Boo Williams Sportsplex. Phillips came into the twoheat 55-meter hurdles final with the fastest time from Friday’s preliminaries at 7.47 seconds, a season’s best, but he managed to find a little more to give. Running in the third lane of the second heat in the finals, Phillips had the top time again when he got the victory with a new season-best 7.42 seconds — just inches ahead

nal matchup against HampdenSydney. However sophomore Akeem Holmes stepped up big to fill the void. Holmes finished the game with 11 points, eight defensive rebounds and three blocks. Junior Andre Simon led the Yellow Jackets with 18 points while sophomores Connor Sullivan and Joe Hassell added 15 and 11 respectively. The two teams traded leads in a see-saw battle throughout the early going until R-MC sophomore Trent Walker converted a three point play with 4:42 remaining in the first half to put the Yellow Jackets on top 2826. They would not trail again in the contest. The Marlins trimmed the lead to 56-52 on a Tre’ Ford

of Charles Graham of Phoebus High School. “It was tight there at the end,” Phillips said. “But when you come to events like this you’re going to be up against the top competition. It feels great to get the win after coming in third last year.” South County won the girls

team championship. Forest Park took the boys title. Kerr was near the front of the pack throughout her heat in the 500, battling Jewel Christian from Woodbridge and South County star Felecia Majors. But as they entered the final turn off the back stretch Kerr made her move, passing

Majors. The race wasn’t over at that point, however, as Majors made one last-ditch effort to overtake Kerr. She failed. Kerr won with a time of 1:13.50, 0.31 seconds shy of the 13-year-old meet record set by Gar-Field’s Sheena Johnson. “Mackenzie is a competitor,” Freeman coach Brian Reutinger

said. “She’s very strong, but most importantly she hates to lose. If she had run two seconds faster and ended up in second I know she would have been upset.” Said Kerr: “Something just clicked inside me in the last 75 meters that I wanted to be a state champion. I think my hating to lose had something to do with it.” She called Majors “an awesome competitor. It was an honor to race against her.” Central Region girls champion Cosby fell out of contention for a team title early on the second day of competition. The Titans finished 11th with 18 points. “That’s just how the cards fall sometimes,” Cosby coach Bryan Still said. “Some of our best performances here just weren’t good enough. The highlight of the meet for Cosby came in the 800 relay when the team of Alexandria Moseley, De’Nisha Smith, Gina D’Orazio and Molly Novak ran 1:42.40 to take the runner-up

basket with 7:28 in the game but R-MC answered with a 10-0 run to seal the contest. Though R-MC locked up the championship game early, such was not the case in the two games leading up to that contest. In the ODAC quarterfinals, the Yellow Jackets trailed Guilford throughout. With 13:41 to play, Matt McCarthy connected on a 3pointer to put the Quakers ahead 53-28 and it appeared Randolph-Macon’s season was close to ending. “I think any time you’re down 15 points to anybody I think you’re certainly concerned but Guilford, with the way they play, that was a big deficit to overcome,” Davis said. But the Yellow Jackets responded with one of their best defensive efforts of all-time. “I

think our guys showed a lot of toughness and character and that carried to our defense,” Davis said. R-MC did not give up another field goal in the contest and limited Guilford to three free throws in the final 13:41 of play. Still, due to the slow pace, the game remained in doubt until the final minute of play. With less than a minute remaining, R-MC trailed 56-55, but Marcus Badger connected on a short jumper with 49 seconds on the clock to give the Yellow Jackets their only lead of the contest and the win 57-56. Sullivan led R-MC with 12 points while Simon added 11 in the game. Senior Lamar Giggetts finished with eight points and 11 rebounds while Badger added eight points, four assists and five steals to the win. With the victory, the Yellow

Jackets advanced to face #12 ranked Hampden-Sydney in the ODAC semifinals. R-MC lost both regular season matchups against the Tigers (23-4) but came away with a 6459 victory in the third meeting between the two rivals. Chris Hamilton proved the difference maker for the Yellow Jackets connecting on 4-of-7 3point attempts to lead R-MC with 14 points in the contest. Giggetts added 11 points while Holmes added seven, three blocks and 11 rebounds to the cause. The Yellow Jackets also got a huge lift from sophomore Evan Jackson who added six straight points with under 9:30 to play that put R-MC on top to stay. Davis believes it is the Yellow Jackets’ defense that will decide how far R-MC goes in the NCAA tournament. “I’ve said for a while now, we’ve certainly

had some good defensive teams here the last few years,” he said. “I think this is the best one. We’re long. We’re athletic. We can cover multiple people and cover a lot of area on the floor so it makes it tough to score on.” Therefore, Davis feels RMC’s tournament run will be decided by their own play rather than that of opponents. “I think that we’re capable of playing with anybody,” he said. “We certainly have to play well. It’s not going to be easy by any stretch of the imagination no matter who you play or where you go. We need to continue to do what we’re doing, continue to work and see what happens.” A victory by the Yellow Jackets would put them in a match-up against the winner of WPI and SUNY-Purchase on Mar. 9.

position. “I really would have liked to have won that,” Still said. “But I’m pleased with how they ran.” Kerr’s Rebels (20 points) tied for ninth with Phoebus. After coming off their first region crown in six years, Manchester’s boys scored points in all but one event in which they fielded athletes. The Lancers were the highest-scoring Central Region team with 19 points. They finished tied for eighth in the team standings with Thomas Edison. Douglas Freeman was 10th with 16 points. Micah Todd finished third in the long jump (22-6 1/2 ) for the Lancers. Michael Averett finished eighth in the 55-meter hurdles with a time of 7.72. “I felt good,” Todd said. “I wasn’t getting close to the toe board, but when I did I managed 22 feet.

Wesleyan win their opening games, the two teams would face each other on Mar. 9. This year’s NCAA tournament offers a structure far different from season’s past. As part of the NCAA’s 75th Anniversary celebration, the D-III championship will not be played in Salem for the first time since 1995. Instead the title game will take place in Atlanta during the D-I Final Four weekend. To balance the schedule, the D-III tournament will consist of single games played the first three weekends; Mar. 2, 9 and 16. The national quarterfinals and semifinals will be played at the Salem Civic Center on Mar. 22-23 and the national championship in Atlanta on Apr. 7.

Gilman and Woody start college with a bang By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Randolph-Macon freshmen Madison Gilman and Katie Woody couldn’t have hoped to get their college careers off to a better start. Not only did the pair of former Patrick Henry standouts start in the Yellow Jackets’ season opening doubleheader on Sunday, but they each made memorable debuts as RMC swept the visiting Dickinson Red Devils 8-1 and 8-0 in five innings. “I was more excited than nervous,” Gilman said. “We’ve been waiting for it for a long time.” Woody shared similar feelings. “It feels good,” she said. “I was a little nervous coming in. It’s still nerve racking but I’m getting use to it.” Woody got the starting nod at first while Gilman took up her familiar role behind the plate. Woody finished the two game slate going 2-for-5 from

a hit,” she said. “It’s better than not getting a hit at all. I’m happy I got at least one hit this game. I hope to get a lot more.” Woody went on to score Randolph-Macon’s first run of

the season on a RBI from senior second baseman Lacey Berry. Gilman, who bats in the slot ahead of Woody, took a little longer to get going. She flew out to short left in her first at bat, struck out swinging on

her second trip to the plate and grounded out to short in her third attempt to get her first official college hit. “I was getting, not really frustrated, I was too anxious up there so that wasn’t helping me

Profs prove grit by downing R-MC in weekend series By Thomas C. Dozier for The Mechanicsville Local The Randolph-Macon College baseball team was off to a good start, posting a 3-1 record, prior to a three-game series against Rowan University, a team that was 31-15 last season and secured an NCAA Tournament. Two things kept the Yellow Jackets from securing a doubleheader split on Sunday, the Profs gritty squad and darkness. In game 1, Rowan, in its first game of the season, erupted for two runs in the top of the sixth inning and it was just enough to hold off Randolph-Macon 3-2 in a non-conference game held on Hugh Stephens Field. The second game, which

featured 24 runs and 29 hits, went a tad longer and was halted because of darkness after eight complete innings with Rowan holding a 13-11. When play resumed on Monday afternoon, Rowan closed out the contest for the 13-11 win. The final game was played later on Monday afternoon, after press deadlines. The Profs came into the weekend series having garnered two votes in the d3baseball. com Top 25 preseason poll and were predicted to finish third in the New Jersey Athletic Conference. The Yellow Jackets got the afternoon and the scoring started in the first inning when freshman Michael Trentham led off the game with a walk and came around to score the

game’s first run on a single by senior Jeb Weymouth. The Profs answered in the fourth when Mark Benak doubled, one of his three hits on the afternoon, and advanced to third on a wild pitch. Then, the junior second baseman scored on the sacrifice fly to center from first baseman Sean Kelly. The visitors took their first lead of the game by adding two runs in the third as the combination of Benak and Kelly were again in the middle of the fray. Benak led off with a double and scored on a single by Kelly. After a walk and a wild pitch, Kelly moved over to third and scored on the sacrifice fly to right from Eric Perez and Rowan grabbed the 3-1 lead. But Randolph-Macon gave it one final effort before suc-

cumbing. Trailing 3-0 entering the bottom of the seventh inning, the Yellow Jackets freshman Mark Heideman led off with the fivepitch walk and sophomore third baseman Nate Meiners followed with a crisp single to left to put runners on first and second with no out. The runners advanced a base on a Rowan error, after Austin Carpenter, a senior who played at Steward School, attempted to bunt on the first pitch. Four pitches later, Carpenter grounded out to second and scored Heideman to close the gap to 3-2. Trentham, a former standout at James River High School, walked and so did former the Hanover product Weymouth to load the bases. With two out, Rowan made

Randolph-Macon appears to be the perfect fit for both players who draw their own cheering section. “It’s definitely fun seeing the community be like the same people I saw at my high school games I see them at my college games,” Woody said. “It’s pretty awesome.” Other Richmond area players on this year’s Yellow Jacket squad include Jasmine Cousins (J.R. Tucker), Christa Simon (James River), Heather Lewis (Deep Run), Lauryn Nanny (Thomas Dale), Carly Alford (Trinity Episcopal) and Jordan Wooten (J.R. Tucker).
