Sheriff: it’s all about being partners By Melody Kinser mkinser@mechlocal.com

Ruritans to help Habitat By Melody Kinser mkinser@mechlocal.com The grounds of the Courthouse Ruritan Park will be filled on Saturday when the Mechanicsville Ruritan Club and Hanover Habitat for Humanity team up for the 33rd Annual Shuknpul Oyster Roast. Ruritan members agreed to partner with Habitat for Humanity, which, chair Chester Sienko said, has “a much deeper draw from the community and the overall Central Virginia per se than we do. We’re just one little club in Mechanicsville and they have affiliations with other groups all over the place and we thought they had a deeper see SHUKNPUL, pg. 4 

Partner. That’s a word often used by Col. David R. Hines, sheriff of Hanover County, when talking about the community he serves. It also takes center stage when he confronts his operating budget. On Friday, March 15, two days after officially presenting his proposal to the Hanover County Board of Supervisors, the sheriff said, “The main part of our budget going forward

— and it’s been the main focus of our budgets since I’ve been the sheriff and even while Stuart Cook was the sheriff — is partnering with the county. But, more important, it’s partnering with the community.” Hines said that was the message he wanted to convey in seeking almost $23 million in his office’s Fiscal Year 2014 budget. His proposal includes 10 new positions: four in Court Services and six in law enforcement. “These are tough times,” the sheriff

acknowledged, “and I know funding is limited, but I truly believe that through partnerships we’ll be successful. The major reason law enforcement is successful in Hanover is because of the relationships we’ve developed with our community.” Even with those relationships, Hines said, the positions in Court Services “will allow us to cover the additional see PARTNERS, pg. 34

Ceremony honors K-9 vets By Jodi Deal jdeal@mechlocal.com The way bloodhound trainer Opal Kocher sees it, service dogs don’t just provide help and companionship: They provide hope. “They are a hope that, with them as your backup, you will return home safely at the end of your shift,” Kocher said at a Saturday ceremony honoring K-9 veterans and service

animals. “They are a hope that you or your loved one will return home safe from a tour overseas.” Kocher told the crowd gathered at Courthouse Park that dogs also provide hope for those with missing loved ones and for patients and their families who may, thanks to a therapy dog, forget their suffering for just a moment. Saturday was a big day for Ed Martin of Hanover Hounds

K-9 Search and Rescue. His group spearheaded the effort that led to Saturday’s dog-centric festivities, which included a solemn ceremony honoring dogs that have served, demonstrations of service dogs’ abilities and plenty of pet-friendly vendors.

West Store closes; future not known for longtime business

INSIDE

(Editor’s note: The following was written and submitted by Lee-Davis High School junior Taylor Martin. She has been a staff member of The Southerner, the school newspaper, for two years. This year, she is serving as public relations editor, with, she said, a goal of “getting everyone in the school involved in the paper.” She will be managing editor her senior year, with plans to focus on the Opinion/Editorial and Feature sections. “I enjoy journalism and plan to double major in psychology and journalism in college,” Taylor added. She is a student of Kathleen Trace , who teaches Career and Technical Education.) When people hear the word “Mechanicsville,” what’s the first thing that comes to mind? For many who call Mechanicsville home, West Store is the center of the small rural town. West Store is a small convenience store where Old Church Road meets U.S. 360. For almost a century, Mechanicsville residents have called the cozy store a safe haven, a place to meet up with friends. When asked “How do you get to King William?,” it’s not uncommon to hear a response like “Once you’ve passed West Store, you’re on your way!” “It’s a landmark because everyone knew where West Store was,” senior Scott Lohman said. Tommy West has called Mechanicsville home his entire life and he can remember back to the days when his

father ran the store. “My father ran the store for 17 years, and we lived in the back of the store until I was 6 years old,” West said. Mechanicsville residents were saddened to learn that the beloved convenience store will be closed for the foreseeable future. Without warning, locals found themselves distraught at the loss of a local hangout spot. A sign on the doors read “West Store closed indefinitely,” leaving regular customers lingering with the unanswered question: For how long? Opened in the 1920s, West Store has been around for generations. For many LeeDavis High School students, it’s a place their grandparents and parents can reminisce of the days where neighbors and friends shared a cool cola on the benches out front and divulged in the latest gossip going around town.

“It’s a little slice of America. Everybody knew everybody. You go in and you can’t leave without running into someone you know. It’s a neat place,” said history teacher Kenneth Lewis. However, West Store hasn’t always been located at the famous corner of Old Church Road, where nowadays any local could locate. “The original West Store was down on Old Church Road, across from Immanuel Episcopal Church. My grandfather’s half-brother ran that store,” West said. Today, West Store is a little convenience store where residents can purchase a cold cut sandwich or a cold beverage. However, back when the store first opened, it was so much more than that. When it was first opened, West Store was a place for see WEST, pg. 4

The meal is served from 1 to 3 p.m. Sienko said adding Habitat to his organization’s fundraiser will bring “a higher level of commitment,” especially with the volunteers. At the suggestion of Mechanicsville businessman Tommy Thompson, Sienko contacted Tim Bowring, executive director of Habitat, about the two groups working together this year. Volunteers are key to the success Hanover Habitat for Humanity enjoys, according to Ashley Timberlake, director of community engagement. “That’s true for all our volunteers — they feel the need.”

In an effort to continue to spread the word about Habitat’s role and successes in Hanover County, Timberlake said they will have a booth at the Shuknpul. Proceeds earmarked for Habitat will go into the building mission. Sienko added that his club supports college scholarships for Lee-Davis, Atlee and Hanover high schools, as well as fire and rescue companies. The goal this year is to purchase defibrillators for Fire/EMS stations. Another goal, he continued, is to see attendance return to the 1,500 to 2,000 range. If the Ruritans can attract that many people, the contribution to

Habitat for Humanity will be better. Timberlake said Habitat sees the Shuknpul “as a good opportunity to be able to be out in the community to show everyone that we’re here to help low income families with affordable housing.” In addition to oysters, the day includes the tractor pull, which draws its own crowd, as well as entertainment by Sweet Justice and The Honky Tonk Experience.

OPINION | The Local Views From the editor

Defining politician and public servant Having been raised in a political hotbed (so much so that NBC News would send national reporters to cover elections in my home county), the idea of being jaded by politicians comes as no surprise. When you’ve been exposed to the ugly side of what is more like a game than a public service, you get . . . well, disgusted. That being said, there are genuine, sincere individuals who devote their lives to serving others in government and their communities. This is where we applaud. Then, there are those who are always running for office. Got elected on Tuesday, already campaigning for the next bid on Wednesday. One of the more unsettling eye-openers for this writer took place early in what has become a lengthy career in newspapers. A well-known elected official was known for his frequent appearances at funeral homes. As kind as that may sound, he would literally campaign at the wake. Bad form, to say the least. But, that’s in the past and in another state. Today, as candidates are gearing up for their upcoming campaigns, it is with great interest to read, watch, listen to how they present themselves to the people they want to represent. I guess the wheels started spinning on the politician vs. public servant scenario after a two-hour interview with Del. John Cox. Despite the fact that most will agree that he gave his best efforts to serve the 55th District in the Virginia House of Delegates, that arena can take its toll. And that’s what he learned — the hard way. In the time he served, we never received any criticisms of his service. We expect he will be missed at the Capitol. As we look toward June 11 and Nov. 5, it’s due diligence time in making the choices in who will serve our needs and our wishes. We’ve already started publishing articles spotlighting candidates. We encourage you to take the time to read about them. We certainly want to believe most are public service-oriented. An elected office brings many expectations that should be met. You decide: Is it a politician or a public servant? We hope for the latter. Melody Kinser

Business Council commends Teacher salary scales supervisors, administration in area quite similar The Hanover Business Council of the Greater Richmond Chamber is writing in support of the Fiscal Year 2014 proposed budget presented by staff to the Hanover County Board of Supervisors. We commend the School Board, county, school and public safety administration and their respective staffs for their management, planning and execution of our county’s resources within a challenging budget climate. Their efforts continue to ensure that our county is a great place to live, work and raise our families. We are encouraged that the county has seen stabilization in financial indicators after a prolonged recession. We must remain diligent in our planning to ensure that our administration and its respective staffs have the appropriate resources required to serve the county’s citizens and businesses effectively over the upcoming five year planning cycle. It is important that the board continue to recognize the county administrator’s assumption that this budget does not propose a real estate tax increase on its citizens, which would be necessary if recovery assumptions are not realized in the short term. We thank the board members for their service and commitment to transparency and a prudent sense of fiscal responsibility that is a great benefit to the entire Hanover community. Sincerely, Mark A. Creery Sr. Chair Hanover Business Council Greater Richmond Chamber

Why is Cuccinelli’s word more reliable than others? Ken Cuccinelli gives stirring speeches about conservatism and freedom, small government and private property, limited powers and fiscal responsibility. It is indeed a winning message. Bob McDonnell won with it. Bill Howell won with it. Tommy Norment won with it. And, once they won, all they gave Virginians in return was more government, more taxes and more spending. So, what happens this November will be determined in large measure by how Ken Cuccinelli answers one simple question: Why is his word any more reliable than theirs? Joseph Pierro Mechanicsville

In the March 6 Mechanicsville Local, Tom Chorinos cites average teacher pay at $49,110 in Hanover. This is a misleading figure about teacher pay. Generally speaking, salary scales in the Richmond metro area are quite similar, and should be. This figure actually shows that Hanover teachers are more experienced than those in other localities. Maybe that is why our system has survived the Draconian $35 million in cuts in the past five years — our experienced teachers have weathered the storm with their expertise. In addition, the Richmond Times-Dispatch article Chorinos cites lists the average school employee salary at $41,120, which is lower than Richmond, Dinwiddie and Colonial Heights. Anyone who doubts the performance of Hanover schools need only check this link: http://hcps2.hanover. k12.va.us/policyadmin/Facts2011-2012.pdf It is a great system and taxpayers will win in the end by funding it. Others have asked “If the schools are performing so well, then why the uproar?” Because our good teachers are not going to perform at the same level given the current conditions. Bigger classes and higher workloads will produce declining student achievement and test scores. Chickahominy District resident Dusty Rhodes has proven this is already occurring in multiple public forums and in the letters to the editor of The Mechanicsville Local.

er pay need to realize is that the current issue is not about teacher pay. It is about student achievement. Our declining enrollment of 3 percent over the past five years does not match the 11 percent drop in our personnel over the same time period (Source: Hanover School Board Fiscal Year 2008-2009 through 2013-2014 Budget Documents). How are students supposed to learn if the employees helping them do so are leaving en masse and not being replaced? We need to begin hiring again now. We need a replacement of at least some of the 322 employees we have lost if Hanover wants a good school system. The Board of Supervisors certainly seems to want a cheap one.

Private-sector: what jobs are

In response to W.S Wright’s letter in the March 13 edition: Once again, a shining example of conservative thought — or lack thereof. When you were comparing the public-sector apples to the private-sector oranges, you forgot to figure out what the jobs actually were. Those privatesector averages include all the low-wage and unskilled positions in our economy, of which there are entirely too many. While some public-sector jobs fall into that category, their percentage of the total is far smaller than in the private sphere. Many, especially the $34,000plus jobs you noted, require college degrees, and those sixfigure positions you complain about all require advanced degrees, vast experience and demonstrated leadership skills that could command far higher salaries in the private sector. In fact, just about every one I do enjoy when teachers of those public-sector positions respond to letters that Hanover

County worker pay comparsion

County taxpayers write about tax money that the Hanover County Board of Supervisors are allocating for the school budget. First, let me say that, as any Hanoverian, I do support our teachers and the work that they do and sometimes with less than they think we have to allocate for the School Board. In answering Lawrence Fitzgerald, a Hanover school teacher, and his wife, also a Hanover teacher. You state that you both moved in Hanover County seven years ago and made Hanover your home for your new and young family. I would like to say to both of you, first, thank you for choosing Hanover as your home and second thank you for your service as teachers, teaching our young children.

that require a college degree would command a higher salary in the private sector. Yet we somehow get competent people to do those county jobs for the lower pay and sometimes poor working conditions and they take pride in what they do even when people insult them in letters to the editor. I work in the private sector, but I appreciate the often thankless work all our county employees do, and I resent when people try to denigrate them without even thinking about what they’re saying. I understand that the real point of Mr. Wright’s letter is to complain about the cost of government, but maybe next time he should pick a more meaningful target — and make sure of what he’s shooting at before he pulls the trigger.

WOOD, Eric Chase, 20, departed this life March 16, 2013. He is survived by his mother, Sandra Roberson Wood; and father, Raymond Earl Wood; grandparents,

Gordon and Ann Roberson and Marian Tucker-Howard. He is also survived by his uncles, Dean Roberson and wife, Suzanne, Russell Wood and wife, Pam; aunts, Peggy Wood and Betsy Wood; WOOD and cousins, Hunter Wood, Kristen Wood and Denise Wood. Chase left behind many friends, too numerous to count, as well as his brothers of Theta Chi. Chase graduated from Freeman High School in 2010 and attended Longwood University in Farmville. You would know Chase by his quick wit, radiant smile and, of course, his multiple bow ties and Sperry’s. Most recently, Chase had begun a career with CarMax of Richmond. Although it was a brief employment, Chase won the hearts of everyone he met there. If you ever had the pleasure of knowing him, you would know he had the gift for gab; whether talking about current events, politics, or his passion, cars, specifically Camaros. He also loved motocross and his music, especially classic rock. Ask him to play “Layla� by Eric Clapton and he would happily pick up his guitar. But most of all, he loved spending time with his family and friends. The river was his favorite place to hang out with friends during the summer. Many a good time was had while there. The family received friends March 22 for a brief service and fellowship at Northside Baptist Church, 7600 Studley Rd., Mechanicsville, Va. A Celebration of his life was held March 23 at Jefferson Lakeside Country Club, 1700 Lakeside Ave., Richmond. In lieu of flowers, send donations to the Farmville Fire Department, where Chase was a volunteer, P.O. Box 241, Farmville, Va. 23901, or Theta Chi Fraternity, Longwood University, Box 3012, Farmville, Va. 23901.

ing services to area medical practices before selling the business, and taking a position with the Joint Republican Caucus of the Virginia General Assembly. Active for more than 20 years with the Republican Party, he is a former chairman of the Hanover Republican Committee. “ “My previous experience as a small business owner and my

work with members of both the House of Delegates and State Senate provide me with a unique set of qualifications to navigate the General Assembly, create consensus and provide workable solutions benefitting the citizens of the 55th District,” Fowler continued. He has worked at the General Assembly for 17 years. The 55th House District includes parts of Hanover,

Caroline and Spotsylvania counties, as well as the Town of Ashland. More details on the Fowler for Delegate campaign team will be released in the near future. Fowler is married to the former Patsy Traylor of Ashland and the couple has three grown children and one grandchild. The Fowlers are members of Slash Christian Church (DOC)

Fowler is a member of the Hanover County Citizens Roads Committee, Clay Springs Ruritan Club, Ashland Boy Scout Troop 700 – Committee member and past Advancement chairman, the Hanover Historical Society, and numerous historical and sportsmen’s organizations.

Daughter Blair Henry noted it wasn’t Frohbose who pursued the late diploma – he wasn’t overly concerned. It was his granddaughter, Elizabeth Clark, who e-mailed the school to inquire about the degree. Henry said she was shocked to learn her father hadn’t technically graduated from the school he spoke of so fondly.

She learned about it in January. “He said, ‘Why are we doing this?’ ” Henry said of her father’s reaction to the ceremony plans. “It’s important to us,” Lindgren told Frohbose.

studying, Frohbose made clear his years at Randolph-Macon weren’t all work and no play. Frohbose, a native of New Jersey, heard about the college from a hometown friend. “He was a student – well, a presence. He wasn’t much of a student,” Frohbose joked. “He talked me into trying it – Ashland was a metropolitan

area for me.” After a year off from school to save enough money for college, Frohbose took to the highway, hitchhiking his way down Highway 1. He said he quickly fell in love with the Richmond area, completing not just medical school but also his residency

ing our tax money, regardless of the reason. Hanover County is a great place to live and rear a family. But, I will not in any way have my tax money go to waste, whether it be higher pay or anything thing that will increase our tax dollars in any way. I have now and always been against higher taxation — period. We are a county of 100,000 residents but pay our county employees as a county that has 400,000 taxpayers (i.e., Chesterfield County). This I will fight with all my heart and soul because it’s wrong.

I did say that the people that spoke at the Hanover County Board of Supervisors meeting were self-serving and still do. As a teacher you should know that when you have people that speak to the board that have something to gain is selfserving. What would you call it? Please see the Richmond TimesDispatch of Feb. 25, 2013. We have spent more money than ever in the history of education and still produce children that can’t read or aren’t ready for college. My generation did learn in public schools in the ’60s and ’70s and now rule the world. We gave you Bill Gates and Steve Jobs, to name a few of my generation and our teachers were just teachers that

were paid less than today (inflation adjusted) and I never heard from any of my teachers speak of their pay or no money to be able to teach. The problem today is that my generation has spoiled the education system and today’s school administrators are money-grabbing morons that have ruined the education system. For them I will say I am sorry. Why? They too are of my generation. You can’t throw enough money on education to make it better. We spent billions of dollars in the last 30 years or so and still get kids that are illiterate. Not just a few but more than ever before. The education system has

Rentals impact neighborhoods I am a concerned resident of the Old Telegraph Road neighborhood. I grew up here and have lived here for more than 40 years. Over time, we have seen our neighborhood become overwhelmed with an increasingly congested area off of U.S. 1. We are surrounded by com-

mercial industry. And within a three-mile radius of us, there are 2,000 apartments. While most of these apartments are in Henrico County, that is right next door to us. The impact of such a high concentration of apartments does not respect county borders. Because of this, the area should be looked at as a whole. When you do that, it’s plain to see that the number of rental units is way out of proportion to Hanover County’s Housing Plan. This top heavy number of rental units downgrades our neighborhood. Now we are threatened by an additional160 apartments being built on

Lakeridge Parkway. Our case comes before the Board of Supervisors on March 27. I’d like to invite the Hanover County Board of Supervisors to visit us and realize the importance of preserving old neighborhoods such as ours. Encroaching on our neighborhood with apartments smaller than 1,200 square feet doesn’t help the county develop properly. It downgrades us all. If the Planning Commission and the developer have their way, our neighborhood will be surrounded by apartments. This is not the way to improve Hanover County. see LETTERS, pg. 23

Secretary of Commerce supports robotics program By Bailey Rummel Special to The Local (Editor’s note: Bailey Rummel, a junior at Hanover High School, has been writing about five years. She plans to continue in the field by majoring in photojournalism in college and pursuing that as her career. “I love to read, write and take photos in my spare time,” she said.) FIRST Robotics is a program offered to elementary through high school students to educate them about programming and

building robots. It was founded by Dean Kamen to influence youth to be creative and to take an interest in science and technology. The program has grown to involve not only students and their mentors, but government officials and celebrities as well. Morgan Freemen was spotted at last year’s national competition and members were given the chance to see a free, live concert featuring the Black Eyed Peas. On a recent Saturday at a practice field built by the local

Hanover High School team, more than 15 teams from different areas came to prepare for their upcoming regional competitions. Jim Cheng, Virginia’s Secretary of Commerce, attended to support and share his fascination at what the youth were able to create in only six weeks. During last year’s competition, the teams were required to shoot foam basketballs into one of four hoops to score points. This year’s challenge is to shoot Frisbees through one of three

goals, which, to Cheng, seemed impossible. “It’s really exciting because I went to the kickoff and I’m thinking, ‘Well, how’re you going to shoot a Frisbee out?’ I can see how you can shoot a basketball, so looking at all these devices and seeing the

successful Frisbee throwing out there . . . I just don’t want to be on the receiving end of that,” Cheng joked. It’s no secret the pride Cheng takes in this organization and the effort he puts into endorsing it. “I get to talk to my companies and say ‘Look at what we’re

doing in our communities to support this pipeline of smart young folks, and getting them involved in the right things,’ . . . We’ve been making phone calls, we’ve been trying to get some folks involved to help because it has to come from private indussee ROBOTICS, pg. 21

He encouraged his roommate to join, too, although the roommate wasn’t accepted. “He couldn’t carry a tune from here to the wall,� Frohbose laughed. Frohbose also participated in an activity at which he said he wasn’t the best — but it was one of his favorites: football. He served as a tackle on the school’s team, and insists he was an average player. When asked if he had any favorite contribution to the football team’s legendary undefeated season in 1936, Frohbose said, “A tackle. Well, I may be stretching it a bit.� Football remains one of his favorite memories from his time at the school. “I could talk an hour about it,� Frohbose said with a laugh. Although his years at Randolph-Macon are far behind him, Frohbose remains sentimental and fond about them. “You’re looking at someone who loved it and enjoyed it,� he

Lindgren and Provost William T. Franz donned the ceremonial robes of graduation to give Frohbose his degree.

He also returned a little bit of Frohbose’s humor. “The good news is, Doctor, we’ve accepted you for your fourth year at RandolphMacon College,� Laughon said. “Our football coach is here and says you have one more year of eligibility, advising Frohbose he’d better get to the gym. In all seriousness, Coach Pedro Arruza was on hand to present Frohbose with a game ball signed by RandolphMacon’s current players. As Frohbose clutched his football memento, he stood by his daughter’s side and sang the school’s alma mater with the crowd as the ceremony closed.

here. Henry added that Frohbose’s brother joined him in the city, attending the University of Richmond and eventually introducing Frohbose to his wife Betty. From there, he became a urologist and moved to Rocky Mount, N.C., where he still lives today. While at Randolph-Macon, Frohbose lived in Thomas Branch Hall, one of the oldest dorms on campus, and paid $300 tuition per year. Back then, students didn’t eat in a dining hall, they ate at a boarding house called Mrs. Luck’s, where Frohbose waited tables to pay for school. In those days, RandolphMacon was still an all-men’s college, other than a handful of female day students. “And how lucky for them,� Frohbose said with a twinkle in his eye.

Husband’s plea for return of gift What began as a great evening quickly turned into just the opposite. My wife and I decided to celebrate the opening of the new McDonald’s on U.S. 360, so we met around 6:10 p.m. at the restaurant. I was in line, where I met some friends of ours (along with every other person who lives in Mechanicsville), and my wife came in a few minutes later. After waiting a few minutes, we finally gave our orders to an incredibly pleasant, but

exhausted, employee. As I continued to talk to people around me, my wife went to pay for our meal. And that is when a dreadful discovery was made. My wife noticed, as she took out her credit card, that the bracelet I had just bought her for Valentine’s Day was gone. She had worn it to work all day, had it on when she was driving home, and now it was nowhere to be found. Frantic, we both searched the restaurant where she had come in to where the line began, and also the route she took from the parking lot, which began in a far lot behind the BP station. After almost 45 minutes of searching and waiting for our meal, we came to the conclusion that the bracelet must have fallen off in the parking lot when my wife put her jacket on. Now, you may say that this is just a bracelet, but it was a match to a ring that she received at the same time. The bracelet also is quite valuable.

We are pretty sure that someone found the bracelet and picked it up — instead of doing the right thing by turning it in. So, it is with our story told, that I would like to implore the person who found it, to please return the bracelet. This incident has been reported to the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office, so they are aware of the situation. You can contact them, return it to the McDonald’s or contact The Mechanicsville Local, and it will then get back to us. There will be no questions asked. So, please, return my wife’s bracelet and show that the best of the human spirit is still alive and well! Thank you! P.S. We would like to personally thank Deputy J.F. Hall for all of his help and comfort during this ordeal. You have truly gone above and beyond the call of duty. Thank you. Stuart Bernstein Mechanicsville

rowing up on the farm, Easter was a great celebration to all of us kids. It meant that we got new clothes, a visit from our grandparents, a table laden with all sorts of food, an Easter egg hunt, and, most of all, oranges slices. First, I need to mention that Mom would ensure that each of the five children had a new Easter outfit for church every year. Back then, it was the 1960s, so the style was floral dresses with straw hats, and, of course, high heels. My sisters, Ginny, Anne and Carolyn, who were quite a bit older than me, were allowed to pick out their own clothes. But since I was the youngest, I didn’t get much say. When I was 8, my Mom dressed me in a white dress with a navy belt and yel-

low daisies on the collar and sleeves. There was a matching navy coat, white anklet socks with lace, and black patent leather “Mary Jane” shoes. The dress barely got my 8-year old approval, but then the day took a turn for the worse when Mom showed me the hat! It was a little white hat, with navy trim and a bright yellow daisy sticking straight up from the side of the hat! I know that my Mom thought it was cute and I can still remember her making me wear it to church, but I thought it was awful and felt like the world was staring at me. I still don’t like daisies to this day and absolutely blame that hat. After we got home from church, our grandparents, Pop and Rusie, would be at the farm. They would bring all sorts of goodies. Back in those days, we didn’t have all the candies and treats that are available today, so when they came, they would bring us treats for the time including, Diet Rite Cola, Moon Pie, bananas and the best thing of all . . . orange

slices! Orange slices are those orange-flavored jelly candies in the shape of an orange slice coated on the outside with big sugar crystals. The slices are tangy tart on the inside and sugary sweet on the outside. They were loved by all of us kids. Our dinner table would be loaded up with all sorts of delicious dishes. There would be a fresh baked ham, Miss Margaret’s chicken, mashed potatoes, corn pudding, string beans, butter beans, carrots, and, of course, hot rolls. This time of year, Mom was always cooking veggies that she had frozen or canned the summer before. The recipe for Miss Margaret’s Chicken has been in the family for years. It is still our family’s favorite dish for Easter and Christmas Eve. To this day, no one knows who “Miss Margaret I,” but we sure do love her chicken dish.

‘Leash law’ goes into effect on Monday Dogs cannot run off property without being leashed during the period of April 1 to June 30 Every year, beginning April 1 through June 30, it is unlawful for dogs anywhere in Hanover County to be running off their property without being leashed. The county’s “leash law” applies throughout the year in the suburban area. Between April 1 and June 30, it is extended to the rural areas as well because the births of vulnerable live-

stock, such as baby lambs and calves, tend to take place during this period. Wildlife activity and rabies cases also generally increase in the April 1June 30 time frame. Any dogs caught running off their owner’s property will be impounded. Impoundment fees are $25 for the first violation and an additional $10 for each subsequent violation within

a 12-month period, including a $5 per day boarding fee. Violations also can result in uniform summons or a written warning being issued. Each instance of a dog belonging to a particular owner running at-large is a separate violation, and an additional penalty will apply regardless of whether or not the same dog is involved.

If you see a dog running at large, please call Hanover County Emergency Communications at 804-365-6140. Any dangerous animal can be reported by dialing 911 for immediate assistance, 24/7. For more information about Hanover County’s running at-large laws, call Animal Control at 804-365-6485. Dogs cannot run off of their own-

er’s property at any time of year without a current county license tag affixed to their collar. Hanover’s laws and regulations regarding dogs and cats can be read at www.co.hanover.va.us/anmlctrl/ lawsregs.htm. Information submitted by Tom Harris, Hanover County public information officer.

Community Emergency Response Teams classes start soon Would you like to learn how you can help others if there is an emergency or disaster right here in Hanover County? If so, Hanover Fire/EMS will be offering free special classes in April to help get you involved. The class is called CERT, which stands for Community Emergency Response Teams, and the classes will be held twice a week from April 9 to May 4. Class dates are April 9, 11, 16, 18, 23, 25 and 30 and May 2 and 4.

The Mechanicsville Local

March 27, 2013

The Tuesday and Thursday night classes are from 6 to 10 p.m. and the final Saturday class will be held from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Classes are held at the HarmanTaylor Fire/EMS Training Center west of Ashland. They are taught by professionals from Hanover Fire/EMS, the American Red Cross, and other agencies active in emergency preparedness. To sign up for the CERT classes, which begin on April 9, or to get more information, all Kristi Wilcox at 804-

798-7864 or e-mail her at kcwilcox@ co.hanover.va.us. There is a maximum class size of 30. Following a major disaster, first responders who provide fire and medical services will not be able to reach everyone. People will have to rely on each other for help in order to meet immediate lifesaving and life-sustaining needs. CERT members will be trained to help fill that need in the community. Through CERT, citizens learn skills

and concepts that prepare them to assist victims, organize volunteers and help their neighborhoods recover in the aftermath of a disaster. CERT also teaches people how to prepare their homes, their families and their communities to reduce the impact of a disaster. For example, CERT training will prepare you to: ✓ Teach your neighbors about emergency preparedness. see CLASSES, pg. 34

Sgt. 1st Class Carey Ford, a kennel master at Fort Lee, shows onlookers why you should never run from an aggressive dog. His puffy suit protects him from the bites of a trained military dog that chased him and slammed into him at top speed.

Still other dogs serve by providing comfort where it’s sorely needed. Miami Phillips, a trainer with Paws 4 Vets, said that his organization pairs traumatized or injured veterans with loving companions found in animal shelters. He shared a few of the stacks of letters Paws 4 Vets gets every day pleading for help. “I get scared when people come up behind me,” Phillips read from one letter. “I need a service dog to help me get my life back. I am 26 years old. I need a dog to help me when I have a nightmare.” Many veterans who suffer from Post Traumatic Stress

Disorder (PTSD) can’t leave the house because of crippling anxiety, Phillips said. “You know what a dog does for them? He gives them love,” Phillips said. “It lets that man or woman integrate back into society. That’s what we do.”

Big plans Jeb Hockman of the Virginia War Memorial said he took a personal interest when he heard of efforts to honor K-9 veterans as a dog lover and a native of Front Royal, where some of the country’s first service dogs were trained for World War II. The War Memorial hosted a ceremony this year for Virginia’s

tion designating March 13 as K-9 Veterans Day. This year, a similar resolution passed the Virginia House of Delegates, sponsored by 55th District Del. John Cox. “They are not equipment,” Martin said. “These dogs are actually members of the service.” Martin said a new flag will fly at the Virginia War Memorial honoring K-9 veterans, emblazoned with “They Served To Save – K-9 Heroes.” The same flags will be printed and flown at Fort Lee, where a K-9 training center hones the skills of military dogs. Staff Sgt. Jared Adams agreed with Martin that military working dogs aren’t tools. “Every dog up here is our comrade and companion,” Adams said. “And every day, we have to depend on them for our safety. All our heroes need to be remembered.”

first K-9 Veterans Day on March 13. “Plans are already underway for 2014,” Hockman said. Next year, the War Memorial museum will have an exhibit on all animals that have served in the military. In addition to dogs, the display will spotlight horses, mules and carrier pigeons. A day-long event will be held at the War Memorial. “In the past and still today, dogs, probably more so than any other creature, are willing to serve and protect the humans with whom they’ve bonded,” Hockman said. After the ceremony, Hanover Hounds member John Von Hagel said Virginia is one of 13 states that have recognized K-9 Veterans Day. Efforts to get federal recognition are underway, he added.

growth within the judicial system in Hanover.” In requesting six law enforcement positions, he said he had asked the supervisors “to keep in mind that, as of today, we are still at 2008 staffing levels.” He has asked for four court bailiffs to handle judge security, turnkey (prisoners), court room security/prisoners and front door security, and six deputies, four on patrol, a permits investigator and a general investigator. The sheriff ’s budget proposal is $20,491,192 with the six positions at $650,904 for a total of $21,142,096. Court Services has a proposed $1,418,708 budget with the four positions at $399,720 for a total of $1,818,428. Overall, FY 2014 for the Sheriff ’s Office is $21,909,900 in the proposal, $1,050,624 with the requested positions and a total of $22,960,524. Hines also noted that the operations budget, which covers equipment – “whether it’s safety equipment, training or the everyday equipment used in the office or vehicles – has been cut by a third since 2008.” “We have a mentality at the Sheriff ’s Office of trying to always do more with less,” he continued. “That’s just a philosophy of the Sheriff ’s Office to go home every day and just

ask yourself: ‘Is there something I could have done better?’ But we’re quickly getting to a point where we’re seeing a slight rise in violent crime; we’re seeing a rise in response times,” which is the time it takes a deputy to arrive after receiving a call. He also said they are seeing “a slight rise in calls for service. We’re seeing commercial development on the drawing board coming to Hanover. We’re hearing talks of possibly bringing in high density housing and all of this has an effect on law enforcement.” “It’s easy to keep a budget or staffing levels at a reduced level,” Hines said, “but not if things within your county are changing. So, as the county changes, it has to be recognized that your law enforcement services will be affected – and the last thing we want to do is cut back on services that we provide for our citizens.” The sheriff pointed out that “We’re not talking about a drastic change. I’m not telling you the sky is falling. I’m telling you that we are seeing a slight change and any time you see a change in crime you want to fix it before it becomes too dramatic.” An aspect that impacts his office’s operations, Hines said, may not be noticed by

the public. “We have mandated requirements for permitting. The Sheriff ’s Office does the background checks that are required by the state for a citizen to obtain a concealed weapons permit.” Last year, he said, his office “saw an increase of 113 percent in concealed weapon applications. The example I gave to the board was that in December of 2011 we had 57 applications. In December 2012, we had 233. And, since January of this year, we have already increased to 662 permits requested in a twomonth period.” In what he described as “a struggling economy,” Hines said he was “thankful to the community, Board of Supervisors and Mr. Harris [county administrator Cecil R. Harris Jr.] for their help with our budget.” He also said that he and his office “appreciate what we have and will continue to work to find new ways of maximizing our manpower, resources and the funds we have been allocated.” Hines repeated why he considers his operations as being successful, citing “a direct result of continued community partnerships, as well as the dedication and selfless service of the men and women of our agency.” “Last year, although I cau-

tioned that our budget was unsustainable in the long-term, I promised to work with the board and county administration, and I’ve made good on that promise. I’ve reassured them that I will continue to honor this promise.” Hines said he needed additional personnel last year, but “agreed to remove any such requests due to ongoing budget challenges.” In the five-year plan that was submitted to the supervisors and county administration, he said he “maintained the need for the additional six law enforcement positions that I’m currently requesting.” As he pursues the positions for the Sheriff ’s Office and Court Services, Hines said, “It is important for the community to understand that we have not been granted any new positions in six years and our operations budget has been reduced by one-third. I realize budgets are tight and we are no exception, but, the fact is, this is simply unsustainable.” “It is not our practice to complain, quit or give up,” the sheriff said. “Rather, we remain committed to working with, not against, our community, the Board of Supervisors and county administration to ensure the public safety goals in Hanover County are achieved.”

Lee-Davis Powers past Patriots in 10th, 6-5 By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Despite being only the second week of the season, the Patrick Henry and Lee-Davis baseball teams turned in a memorable performance on Friday night. A spurt of early game errors contributed to the scoring for both teams but as the temperatures continued to drop the pitching heated up for both squads. Following a fifth inning 5-5 tie it was a Battle Royale with neither squad willing to give and inch as the game went into three extra innings before Lee-Davis pulled out a 6-5 win. In the bottom of the 7th, a foul ball by Lee-Davis junior outfielder Cody Powers shat-

tered a light behind home plate. Three innings later, it was Powers who helped turn the field lights off completely by setting up the game winning run for the Confederates as he faced down Patriots’ pitcher Andrew Strong. “I saw the man was changing his arm slot and I got a feeling he was going to throw a lot of junk that time in,” Powers said. “He threw me a fastball and I knew I had to turn on it because it was inside. I just got a nice rip on it.” Powers blasted the ball just inside third base and into left for a lead off double. Sophomore catcher Kevin France prepared to step to the plate next but first got some

Patriots slide by C-feds in 8th, 3-2 By Thomas C. Dozier For the Mechanicsville Local

For Hanover County softball teams there is nothing like picking up a quality non-district win early in the season, especially for a young squad that is trying to replace a core group of players who helped lift their program to another level such as Patrick Henry and Lee-Davis. Fittingly, it took eight innings to determine a winner between two

instructions from teammate Andrew Sergeant. “(If) you get him over in position, I’m going to get him in,” the junior pitcher said. France did his part by laying down a sacrifice bunt that easily moved the runner to third. From there, Powers was confident seeing Sergeant step to the plate. “I knew he was going to stand back and draw the ball. I had confidence in him.” It took only two pitches for Sergeant to live up to his words, see BASEBALL, pg. 41 ` Charlie Leffler/The Local

Midlothian holds off Raiders lacrosse 8-7

By Ben Orcutt For The Mechanicsville Local The Midlothian High School varsity lacrosse team was on a mission last Thursday when the they hosted rival Atlee High School at the River City Sportsplex in Chesterfield. Last year, the Trojans suffered two losses to the Raiders– once during the regular season and again in the state championship of boys’ high school club lacrosse. But the first meeting between the pair this year was a different story as the Trojans gained a measure of revenge with a hard-fought 8-7 win. Midlothian did not lack for motivation in the contest. “We came out here tonight really wanting this one, I can tell you that,” said Greg Barnard, who is in his fifth year as Midlothian’s head coach. “We got out early on them and that’s

what we wanted to do. That was the game plan. We wanted good, settled possessions. We wanted to have the opportunity to take a lot of shots and hoped they’d go in. Their goalie [Thomas Rogers, 13 saves for the game] is a tremendous stopper in the cage and we got to him early and that was the game plan.” Midlothian jumped out to a 5-1 lead at the end of the first quarter, led 6-2 at halftime and 7-2 at the start of the third period. However, Barnard knew Atlee would not go down without a fight. “Our game plan in the second half was to come out and get the next two goals and get some more separation,” he said. “We got the first one. We didn’t get the second one and the momentum switched and they had an opportunity to get

back in the game, but I’m really proud of the way our guys hung in there at the end. Both teams were tired but there was a gut check at the end. I think our goalie – Nicky Powis – did a fantastic job in the cage [nine saves]. He made some great stops down at the end of the game.” As expected, the Raiders came roaring back, scoring four consecutive goals to draw within 7-6 with less than four minutes remaining in the quarter. An Atlee penalty with 45 seconds left in the third proved costly when Midlothian’s Jonathan Holland took advantage of the man-up advantage and scored a goal at the 30second mark to put the Trojans up 8-6. Atlee scored a goal with just under six minutes remaining to make the lead 8-7, but the Midlothian defenders were

behind the plate,” Webb said. “Ellen got the clutch hit and we can always count on Paige (Mitchell) at shortstop, she makes all the routine plays out there that you are supposed to make.” However, the win wouldn’t have been possible had Candace Whittemore not picked Friday to pitch the best game of her high school career. The crafty right-hander, who works with an array of six pitches – fastball, curve, drop, change, rise, and screwball – to baffle hitters, seemed to get better as the game went on. “I felt really good out there,” Whittemore said. “There was no doubt about the fact if we hung in there we would score some runs. Once we got the runs it allowed me to pitch with more confidence.” Not to mention, after a firstinning error and a misplayed ball in the fourth, the Patriots’ defense was flawless.

“I got to give a lot of the credit to Candace and Ashley,” Webb explained. “In between innings they would get up in the dugout and go over hitters. It helps to have in mind how you want to pitch and they both communicated that throughout the game.” The early going seemed to favor Lee-Davis on the windy day. The Confederates got on the board first as second baseman Kinsee Stonebreaker led off with a walk; the only walk given up on the day by Whittemore. Becca Fields’ sacrifice bunt advanced Stonebreaker to second. Ryleigh Hawker then laced a double to right-center on a 2-1 pitch to score Stonebreaker for the game’s first run. The Confederates proceeded to load the bases with two outs, but Whitmore was able to work out of it with no further damage. Through the first four innings, Lee-Davis starter

resulting in an inside-the-park home run which proved to be the difference as the visiting Patriots got by the Confederates 3-2. “In the early going we made some mistakes on defense and we made some mental mistakes, said Patrick Henry first-year coach Shelby Webb. “But once the bats got going the wheels got in motion and we kicked it up a notch. “Then, Ellen Davidson came up with the big hit and it allowed us to pick up a big win against a very good team.” Both the Confederates and the Patriots showed glimpses of why they are among the state’s best programs. Webb was especially pleased with the way her veteran players stepped up. “Ashley (Samuels) made some great plays and great calls

equal to the task and held on for the win. “They [Atlee] have a fine team,” Barnard said. “We have

most of our guys back this year showed a lot of character and and so do they and we expected determination. They came back a hard-fought game and they from being down early by four certainly gave it to us. They see LACROSSE, pg. 41 `

Lauren McIntyre gave up a triple to Mitchell in the first, a single to Taylor Prokopis in the second and a single to Samuels in the fourth, but she got out of each inning unscathed thanks to seven strikeouts in the first four innings. Riding that momentum, the home team added its second run in the bottom of the fourth when Stonebreaker reached on a single and was driven in by Fields to give the Confederates a 2-0 lead. McIntyre appeared to be rolling through the fifth inning but with two out, the Patriots’ No. 9 hitter, Briana Woody, reached on an infield single. Whitmore then slapped a single through to left to put a runner in scoring position. Beth Ford, who had two hits on the day, jumped on the first pitch and drove in Woody. Kendall Thomas, pinch-running for Whittemore, attempted to score and was gunned down on the throw-in from Lee-Davis left

fielder Becca Hicks to thwart the rally but the pendulum was starting to shift. Whittemore became untouchable the rest of the way retiring the final 13 Lee-Davis and did not allow a baserunner from the fourth inning on, setting the stage for the Patrick Henry comeback. After stranding eight runners through the first six innings, the visitors made the most of the seventh. Davidson reached on one of two Lee-Davis errors in the inning. Woody sacrifice bunted her to second and Davidson moved over to third on a ground ball to the right side by Whittemore. Ford, a sophomore, smacked the ball through the hole between third baseman and shortstop to tie the game at 2-2. After Davidson’s home run gave Patrick Henry the lead, Whittemore produced her fourth straight 1-2-3 inning to

close out the win. Patrick Henry improved to 3-1 on the season and maintains a 1-1 record against Hanover County teams (the other a loss to Atlee) while Lee-Davis fell to 1-1. Mitchell, who had a stellar day in the field, paced the Patriots with three hits, Ford chipped in with two hits. Davidson, Whittemore, Samuels, Hunter Glave, Prokopis, and Woody each had a hit in the Colonial District’s team 11-hit attack. Leadoff hitter Stonebreaker led the Confederates with two hits while Fields, Hawker and Hicks recorded the other hits on the day.

Jackets get split with #11 Shenandoah By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com On Saturday afternoon the Randolph-Macon College baseball team displayed a microcosm of their season by earning a split with #11 Shenandoah. The Yellow Jackets scored in six of the first seven innings of game one then held off a late Hornet rally to get the win the Old Dominion Athletic Conference win 10-9. In game two, Shenandoah scored four runs in the final three innings to break out of a 4-4 tie and pick up the victory 8-4. On the day, R-MC finished with seven errors, which contributed to the loss in game two and nearly cost them game one. “We have a good team, I think we can compete and play with anybody, it’s just at times we get in our own way, both the first game and the second game,” said coach Ray Hedrick. The Yellow Jackets currently hold an 8-8 record (4-4 ODAC) and will reach the midpoint of their season this week. Six of those losses have come against teams ranked in the top 25 of the D3baseball.com’s rankings; #11 Shenandoah, #23 Rowan and previously #18 Bridgewater. Hedrick compared Saturday’s matchup against the Hornets to the previous week’s game against Hampden-Sydney. “We got a comfortable lead, early on in the first five innings we were all in our way and we couldn’t field a bunt. We threw the ball away on a bunt. We didn’t pick up the ball on a bunt,” Hedrick said. “These are all things we spent 35 minutes on practicing and we practice ad-nausium all the time. “We could very easily be 125 or maybe even better if we just got out of our own way,” Hedrick added. Still, playing one of the toughest schedules in the

Randolph-Macon senior outfielder Jeb Weymouth, right, unmasked Shenandoah catcher Joe Bittner with a foul ball during Saturday’s double-header in Ashland. The Yellow Jackets earned a split with the #11 Hornets, taking game one 10-9 while falling in the nightcap 8-4.

ODAC, Hedrick knows all the Jackets need to do is work on their mental approach. “Talent’s there. It’s not a talent issue,” he said. “I think guys are starting to question their ability. I told them we are as good as Shenandoah if not better. I think we put better arms out there, it’s just we’re not confident.” While not at his best, senior pitcher Michael Helbig (Midlothian) turned in a solid game one performance against the Hornets, picking up the win with seven innings of work, ceding eight hits and three earned runs. “It’s rare that Michael’s going to go out there and the game’s going to get away from him,” Hedrick said. “He may give up a run or two runs but generally Michael’s going to keep us in the game.” Freshman righty Will Jennings (Patrick Henry) picked up the save, closing out the contest after Shenandoah trimmed the Yellow Jackets’ lead to one in

the top of the ninth. R-MC took advantage of timely hitting throughout to double up the Hornets 10-5 after six innings. Senior outfielder Jeb Weymouth (Hanover), who went 2-for-3 with a walk, RBI and three runs scored, got things going early, reaching on a fielder’s choice in the bottom of the first then scoring when Jon Witt (Trinity) bounced the ball off third base for a single. The Hornets answered in the top of the second. Michael Paul led off with a single to left center and Dan Powers joined him on base after being hit by a pitch. Andrew Creamer then laid down a bunt which resulted in a bad throw by R-MC catcher Tim Benjamin, allowing Paul to score. Then with one out, Joe Bittner drove a liner drive up the middle plating Creamer and Powers for a 3-1 Shenandoah lead. The Yellow Jackets respond-

ed with three runs in the bottom of the third, but failed to capitalize further due to base running errors. Jake Fletcher led off with a double down the left field line and came home when Weymouth doubled to deep left center. Weymouth reached third on a single by Benjamin and RMC loaded the bases after Witt took a pitch across his gut. Freshman left fielder Michael Trentham (James River) sent Weymouth and Benjamin home on a single to left but then things fell apart. Witt overran second and was tagged out. Soon afterward, Trentham was picked off at first. Hedrick knew his team blew and opportunity to demoralize the Hornets. “We would have had the lead and nobody out with runners on first and second,” he said. “Jon Witt overextends at second base. He’s going nowhere in that situation because of his foot speed and he gets back-picked at second.

Then Michael Trentham in that 2-2 count, was going nowhere and he gets picked off at first, on not a very good pickoff. “They were panicking in their bullpen,” Hedrick said. “They had guys running back and forth from the bullpen. The starter was on the verge of being taken out of the game and that quickly they go from being in a panicky situation to being very comfortable with two outs and two strikes on the hitter.” Shenandoah went back on top with two runs in the top of the fourth but once again R-MC found an answer. Freshman DH Mitch Keeler (2-for-7, 3 walks, 1 run on the day) was hit by a pitch then Fletcher rocketed a shot high over the left field wall to put the Yellow Jackets on top to stay 6-5. R-MC added two more in the fifth when Nate Meiners’ single drove in Travis Lodge and Trentham. The Yellow Jackets then doubled up Shenandoah in the sixth with two additional runs. Trentham sent a bases loaded groundout to second plating Fletcher and Weymouth scored his third run of the day on a single from Lodge. R-MC looked to be in good shape with two out into the top of the 9th and reliever Glen McLaughlin (Douglas Freeman) on the mound. But the sophomore gave up two walks to the first four Hornet batters. Powers then sent a shot to short that bounced high and was fielded badly allowing Corbin Lucas to score. Next up, Creamer blasted a 3-RBI shot into the Yellow Jacket bullpen to trim R-MC’s lead to one. Jennings then came to the mound, making two pitches before Nick Beall flew out to end the game. The Hornets struck early in

game two, scoring three runs in the first off R-MC starter Jake Bram. The Yellow Jackets answered in the second. With bases loaded, Natie Meiners doubled to drive in Trentham and Witt. Meiners later scored on a Shenandoah error to give R-MC a 4-3 lead. The Jackets had a chance to break the game open in the bottom of the fourth with bases loaded, but Witt popped up into the infield allowing Shenandoah to escape. Creamer then drove in the tying run in the fifth and gave the Hornets the lead for good with a homer in the seventh coming away with a 6-4 lead. R-MC could not answer and Shenandoah added two more in the ninth to create the final margin. As R-MC heads into the second half of the season, Hedrick believes all the team needs is to understand the potential they hold. “The guys see, the teams we play, we’re as good if not better…All these teams that are ranked in the Top-25, Top-30, they’ve seen that they can play with those teams. It’s just a matter of going out and executing and believing they can get it done. It’s not an ability thing.” The Yellow Jackets return to action this Tuesday, Mar. 26, when they travel to York (Pa.) for a 3:30 non-conference contest.

driving Strong’s second pitch up the middle of the field to allow Powers to easily score. “He threw that second pitch fastball up there, I hit it up the middle and we won,” Sergeant said. Overshadowed by the late game offensive heroics was the stellar pitching by both squads. “I thought the pitchers pounded the strike zone and threw a lot of strikes,” said Patrick Henry coach Sam Hart. “I think they handled the zone well and threw strikes.” Joe Buehren, Chesdin Harrington and Strong each performed well on the mound for the Patriots. Strong got tagged with the loss, but finished with five strikeouts versus one walk over three innings of work. Harrington was especially impressive with six K’s over four innings of action. “Chesdin threw well,” Hart said. “I’m very happy with their arms and the way they performed tonight.” Josh Lam got the start on the mound for the Confederates, coming away with four Ks, in three innings despite an errorfilled, five-run second inning where the Lee-Davis defense let him down. Sergeant got the win with six Ks over the final two innings but the surprise of the night was the debut of freshman righty Justin Sorokowski. Over five innings of middle-game work, Sorokowski was poised and accurate, striking out seven with five walks, allowing one hit and no runs while getting out of several jams. “I had faith the whole time,” Sorokowski said. “I knew to myself, they’re not going to score on me. I kept saying it, everyone knows, they’re not going to score, I’m going to get through it.” Even before Sorokowski took the mound, Lee-Davis head coach Kenny Lewis was impressed by the maturity of his young pitcher. “I’ve not seen

anything either on the field or off the field that he does that is 9th grade. Nothing,” Lewis said. “Not the way he carries himself in the classroom, or in the halls. Not the way he carries himself in the dugout or on the field, not the way he plays the game between the lines. I’ve seen nothing that would indicate to me he’s a 9th grader. He is that in name only.” Lewis was especially pleased to see his entire pitching rotation support his preseason beliefs. Lewis suspected he would have good pitching this season but weather conditions prevented him from actually getting to see them in live action. With two games under their belt, he glad to see his faith confirmed. “We’ve got some good, young arms they just need to get out there and compete,” he said. “I’m

excited about those kids.” Both teams took advantage of defensive miscues early. Speedy junior outfielder Haiden Lamb got things going for the Confederates in the bottom of the first. Lamb’s lead-off bunt resulted in a bad throw to first, but where most runners would simply reach second, Lamb was at third by the time the ball was recovered. Junior shortstop Brett Langhorne then reached when PH’s Kyle Palmer left first base open to retrieve the ball. Back-to-back sacrifice shots from Lam and Powers brought the two runners home for a quick 2-0 Lee-Davis lead. The Patriots answered in the second. Harrington led off with a single to second and Buehren joined him on base when his shot to short resulted in dropped

toss that could have turned into a double-play. Tyler Starling then sent a twoout RBI single to short center, plating Harrington. Following a walk of Brandon Lloyd, Palmer singled up the middle to plate pinch runner Carson Stone and Starling. Next up, Nathan Steele’s shot to third resulted in a bad throw plating Palmer and Lloyd for a 5-2 Patriot lead. Lee-Davis got one run back in the bottom of the second as the result of a Patriot error. With one out, Patrick Holler lofted fly ball towards short right. As three Patriot players crowded in for the catch near the line, the ball glanced off Starling’s glove and dropped into foul territory. Holler reached third before Patrick Henry realized it was a live ball.

LACROSSE

at Atlee High School on Apr. 23. With the loss, Atlee fell to 1-1 on the year. Sophomore William Watson scored three goals for the Raiders and teammate Sean O’Reilly, a junior, added two goals and an assist. The Trojans improved to 4-0 with the win and were led by Daniel Serafin, who had two goals and two assists and Miles Muncie, who also tallied two

goals. Atlee head coach Eric Hall declined comment after the game and did not make any of his players available for comment.

A punch to center by Sean King plated Holler to trim the lead to 5-3. The Confederates tied the game in the bottom of the fifth. Sorokowski led off with a single to short and advanced to third on a single up the middle by Lam. Sorokowski then scored when Powers’ shot to second resulted in a bad throw. A sacrifice from France drove in Lam to tie the game and set up the extra inning battle. Patrick Henry came into the game with a 3-1 record and despite being saddled with the loss, the Patriots turned in an overall solid performance and showed talent that should allow them to compete for the Colonial District title. “I wish we would have been a little bit cleaner,” Hart said. “I thought we had some great at-bats. Offensively we saw a lot of pitches tonight but on the flip side we didn’t catch it and throw it as well as I would have liked. We preach that and that’s something that I’m disappointed with, but that’s baseball and that’s

going to happen.” For the young Lee-Davis squad, the future is looking bright after two games. “We’ve played 17 innings against two really good opponents and… I feel like we’ve won a lot of those innings,” Lewis said. “With these young kids that need experience, every inning I think they’re getting better. They work real hard, have a lot of energy, a lot of enthusiasm and I think they’re taking every opportunity to get better and I’m pleased with what I see.” Both teams close out this week with big conference matchups.

Medical professionals urge concussion vigilance By Jodi Deal Regional reporter During his junior year of high school, Ivan Schwartz made two big goals in the final minutes of a championship hockey game – an achievement he can’t remember. That night, Schwartz also got his face slammed into the glass by a blow to the back of his head. As he woozily looked at his coach, he heard words that have been said on many a rink and field: “Son, you just got your bell rung. Now get back out there.” Although he likely suffered a concussion, Schwartz was okay. He went on to become administrative director of sports medicine for Bon Secours Virginia Health System. But the outcome could have been much more serious. That’s why he and his staff are on a mission to

spread the word: Concussions can be deadly, and aren’t to be taken lightly. About 200 coaches, parents and athletes gathered at the new St. Francis Watkins Centre physical therapy clinic on Monday, March 19, to bust myths about brain injuries and try to change attitudes on the field, on the sidelines and in the stands about what to do when an athlete takes a blow to the head. Willie Lanier had quite a career in the National Football League: 11 seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs, including a Super Bowl win, eight Pro Bowls and NFL’s Man of the Year title in 1972. Lanier, now in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, is an outspoken advocate for football safety. When he was drafted in 1967, Lanier became the first

African American middle linebacker in NFL history. That left him feeling a lot of pressure to achieve, and he went at the game with all his might. Rough and tumble tactics like launching himself headlong into the opposition quickly earned him the nickname “Contact.” Just five games into his first season, Lanier slammed his head into the knee of a San Diego Chargers fullback. His ears rang. The field was wobbly. But Lanier kept playing. “I was never down, never out, never missed a play,” Lanier told the crowd at the concussion conference. After another week of practice, the team had a home game against Houston. Lanier collapsed on the sidelines and awoke two hours later staring into a big light in the emergency room, thinking about

Seven homers have Yellow Jacket softball off to record 19-2 start Staff reports The Randolph-Macon softball team took advantage of seven homeruns on Saturday to capture two victories over Emory and Henry in Old Dominion Athletic Conference and improve to 19-2 on the season (4-0 ODAC). In doing so, the Yellow Jackets broke the program record for most wins

after 20 games, previously 173 set by the 2008 squad. The Wasps fell to 8-10, 0-2. Patrick Henry alums, freshmen Katie Woody and Madison Gilman, got in on the act. Gilman homered in each game while Woody drove one out of the park in game two. Amanda Sopko and Tyler Doss added home runs while

Sharese Jarvis connected on a pair. Jarvis now has a team and ODAC leading eight home runs, while Gilman has four on the season. The Yellow Jackets, who currently hold a 15-game winning streak, will be back in action on Mar. 27 when they travel to Virginia Wesleyan for a 3 p.m. start.

Young picks up two weekend wins for UVa Staff reports University of Virginia junior pitcher Austin Young picked up a pair of wins over the weekend as the #11 ranked Cavaliers swept visiting #16 NC State in Atlantic Coast Conference action. The Atlee alum picked up his first win in game one of the Saturday double-header by tossing 3 1/3 shutout innings

out of the bullpen and retiring all ten batters he faced in an 8-2 Cavaliers’ win. UVa then defeated the Wolfpack 4-3 in the nightcap. Young picked up his second win in as many days, when he came to the mound in relief on Sunday afternoon. Young entered the game with two runners on and one out in the fifth inning, eliminat-

ing the threat and earning his second win of the season (2-0) in the 6-3 Virginia victory. The Cavaliers are back in action this week with a midweek game scheduled for Wednesday, Mar. 27 at 5 p.m. against Towson. Virginia follows with a three-game weekend series against Miami beginning Friday, Mar. 29 at 6 p.m. at Davenport Field.

the severity of what had just happened to him. Years later, he learned that his heart had stopped three times while he was being transported to the hospital. Lanier missed two games. He started having vertical double vision, which flared up during his first game back on the field. That’s when he headed to the Mayo Clinic for further evaluation. The diagnosis? A previously undiagnosed subdural hematoma. That’s a bleed between the brain and the skull that puts pressure on delicate brain tissue, often proving fatal. “I survived by God’s grace,” Lanier said. After that, Lanier said he seriously debated whether to keep playing. He eventually made a pact with himself: If he was going to play, he was going to play it safe. Gone were the days of brash leaps at the other team. Lanier totally changed his playing style, taking care

to know where other players and the ball were at all times. Instead of hitting other players, he blocked them with his body in a big bear hug. No longer did his teammates call him “Contact.” Lanier was now known as “Honey Bear.” “I barely had a hangnail for the next 10 years,” Lanier said. For the rest of his career, he only missed half of a single game. Until recent years, the prevailing wisdom was that a concussion resulted in unconsciousness. Players who remained conscious after a hard hit were told to shake it off and keep playing. That’s no longer the case, and safety advocates are working hard to change the culture. “When in doubt, sit them out,” Mike Puglia, a certified athletic trainer who works at Powhatan High School, said. In Virginia, it’s actually the law that any student athlete displaying one single symptom of a concussion must be removed from the game,

Puglia said. “If there’s anything that’s not working right, call 911,” Puglia said. That goes for athletes who lose consciousness, if even for a second. Signs can include headache or a feeling of pressure in the head, neck pain, balance problems or dizziness, nausea or vomiting, vision problems, ringing in the ears, irritability, high emotion, difficulty concentrating and difficulty remembering things. Patients also can report feeling dazed, confused, slowed down, drowsy or “in a fog.” “The kids look up to us – you’ve got to do your part,” Puglia said. Coaches can’t make athletes play when they’re impaired, parents can’t yell at coaches for taking kids out of the game, and kids can’t be allowed to say they’re okay when they’re clearly not.
