scar Watson would have been proud — and humbled. The Hanover Tomato Festival, which he helped launch in 1978, attracted about 37,000 people on Saturday to Pole Green Park in Mechanicsville. That number was 5,000 shy of the record 42,000 set in 2009. Watson, who started the festival as a fundraiser for the Black Creek Volunteer Fire Department, passed away last September. For his 34 years of service, the day was dedicated to him. His widow Sandy received a resolution from Del. Chris Peace, R-97, on behalf of the Virginia House of Delegates. In January, Peace said, the House acknowledged Watson’s 20 years of service to the VFD, including 10 as president. He

also had chaired the Hanover County Fire Chiefs Staff. “As founder and president of the Hanover Tomato Festival, Chief Watson worked tirelessly to bring together community members to promote the county’s signature

crop at the annual event that draws tens of thousands of visitors,” Peace said. “A vital part of the Hanover County community, Oscar Watson touched the lives of countless individuals and created an enduring family-friendly

event that allows residents to gather together and celebrate their community spirit and enjoy the county’s delicious tomatoes.” Once the presentations honoring her husband were complete, Sandy, overcome

with emotion, simply said, “Thank you. Thank you.” Near the stage, firefighters and Watson’s extended family exchanged meaningful embraces. see TOMATO, pg. 4 

In a decision that was rendered null and void hours later by the U.S. Supreme Court, the U.S. Department of Justice approved Hanover County’s application for a Voting Rights Act bailout. The word came down on Monday, June 24, a day before the Supreme Court eliminated portions of the pre-clearance requirements. Sean Davis, vice chair and Henry District representative on the Hanover County Board of Supervisors, said he was on his way to a town hall meeting regarding high speed Internet access in the eastern portion of the county when he got the news.

The Local Pick:

A Trusted Real Estate Professional Honored in 2012 by The Richmond Association of Realtors 20 Year Distinguished Achiever in special recognition for Outstanding Production

Hanover deputy treasurer of collections receives honor The Treasurers’ Association of Virginia has named Felix L. Stevens of Hanover County as its “Deputy Treasurer of the Year.” Stevens, deputy treasurer of collections, was recognized not only for his work in Hanover but his assistance to other localities and his service in the community. Despite 25 percent cuts in staffing for the collection division, Treasurer Scott Miller said Stevens and his staff have maintained collection rates of about 99 percent in real estate and personal property taxes. He also has helped the county collect its share of taxes due when businesses have had to close. Stevens also has been largely responsible for working with other departments to ensure the continued financial success of Hanover’s Economic Development Zones. Other localities have benefitted from Stevens’ expertise, Miller said. He has given other local treasurer’s offices advice and supplied sample collection forms, for example. Stevens also has assisted other treasurers’ offices in the use of the Bright tax program software. He has been a lead person in the Virginia Treasurers’ User’s Group

FELIX STEVENS Deputy Treasurer of the Year and specifically worked on the Delinquent Collections Module now being used by other localities. (Ken Catron of the Hanover Treasurer’s Office also has worked on this project). “Felix is very worthy of this recognition,” Miller said. “When I go to Treasurers’ Association meetings, people ask me where I get all these good people like Felix and I tell them I hire smart people and get out of the way so they can do their jobs.” “This is a great honor and it catches me by com-

plete surprise,” said Stevens. “I would not have been able to do any of this without Scott and (Chief Deputy Treasurer) Angela Baxter, and my staff. My staff is very responsible and hard-working, and that gives me the freedom to look for different ways of doing things that could make their job easier.” Stevens has been with Hanover for eight years. Hired originally as a part-time collections agent in May 2005, Stevens was promoted to deputy treasurer for collections in January 2007. Before moving to Ashland in 2005, Stevens was the parking services manager at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is a member of the Town of Ashland’s Planning Commission and is active at Duncan Memorial United Methodist Church in Ashland. He and his wife Traci live in Ashland with their children, Zachary and Jonah. Stevens is the second employee of the Hanover County Treasurer’s Office to be recognized as “Deputy Treasurer of the Year.” Baxter received the award in 2006.

A highlight of the morning’s all, ranging in age from their festivities is the announcement 30s to elementary schoolers.

“We need to start a reality show. Instead of ‘Toddlers and Tiaras’, it’ll be ‘Tomatoes and Tiaras’,” Watson said. “Hanover County grows the best tomatoes in the world – and the cutest little girls.” As always, the highly anticipated envelope carrying the top-secret names of the winners was delivered by Princess JoJo, a tiny Yorkshire Terrier. Marcy Durrer, recreation program director with Parks & Rec, said the tomato tent sold out about 3:30 p.m. Two hundred bushels, 400 boxes, are purchased from Dodd’s Acres Farm every year. Without fail, Oscar Watson always bought the Hanover Tomatoes from Robert Dodd. Profits from the tomato sales benefit the Black Creek VFD, which uses the monies for operations, equipment and

training purposes. “We don’t have the financials yet,” Durrer said Monday morning, “yet we do expect to have a profit.” “Mother Nature was extremely cooperative for the majority of the day, which brought out lots of excited Tomato Festival attendees,” she added. “Regretfully, traffic was a challenge due to field conditions from the rains that came during the week,” she said. Since the record crowd of 2009, organizers continue to perfect a traffic flow system in and out of the park. Deputies with the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office join with volunteers and Parks & Rec staff in directing motorists. “The deputies were amazing, the volunteers were amaz-

regarding Voting Rights Act violations. In earlier statements, Canova Peterson, chair of the HCBOS from the Mechanicsville District, said pre-clearance regulations required the county to jump through unnecessary steps when doing something as simple as moving a polling place. Those arguments became just conversation as the Supreme Court invalidated Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act. That section deals with how localities are selected for inclusion in the act. Davis said it’s important to note that Hanover County was approved for a bailout before the Supreme Court took action, the last county in the nation to be approved for a bailout. According to some experts, it could be years and maybe longer until Congress replaces Section 4 and reinstalls the act. “I think it speaks volumes that before the Supreme Court made their ruling, Hanover County was the last county in the nation to have the bailout, which shows that we had no

voter rights violations,” Davis said. “We want open accessibility for everyone to vote.” Goochland County Attorney Norman Sales told supervisors at a recent meeting that the county’s request for additional precincts in District 4 also was approved just short of the deadline. Sales got the county’s letter a day after the decision came down, but the correspondence was dated before the court acted. “The letter is dated June 24 and we received it in my office on June 27, which I think was a day after the Supreme Court had invalidated Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act,” Sales said. With the elimination, Sales said the ball returns to Congress’ court. “Section 4 has been invalidated, so that kicks it back to Congress to decide whether they would like to come up with a new formula to determine which states or localities might be covered,” Sales said. “They may take it up, and they may not.”

OPINION | The Local Views

LETTERS

From the editor

A certainty: festival delivers a good time Celebrate was the word of the day on Saturday as the Hanover Tomato Festival observed 35 years of paying tribute to the fruit so dear to those of us who call Mechanicsville home. While it may be a Hanover County tradition, the Tomato Festival is rooted in Mechanicsville, thanks to the efforts of the Black Creek Volunteer Fire Department. When Oscar Watson, who passed away last fall, and his fellow BCVFD members decided to raise funds for their operations in 1978, I doubt they ever thought the Tomato Festival would become “the” summer event in Mechanicsville. But that’s exactly what it is. Yes, we missed seeing Oscar roaming the grounds of Pole Green Park on Saturday. But, thanks to him and the others involved 35 years ago, we thoroughly enjoy celebrating the Hanover Tomato. In addition to the Black Creek VFD, Hanover County Parks and Rec joins with The Herald Progress and The Mechanicsville Local in representing the Hanover Tomato Festival Committee. We are proud to be part of this tradition. Many of us reap the benefits of all the hard work invested in bringing the festival together. To the organizers and volunteers — everyone associated in any way — we say “Thank you!” Thousands pour into Pole Green Park the second Saturday in July for a memorable and enjoyable day that features yummy foods, great merchandise and informative displays in the many tents dotting the grounds. The crowning of the Little Miss and Tiny Miss Hanover Tomato Festival Pageant winners is a highlight as the festival gets underway. And the entertainment, children’s activities and more make the festival so enjoyable. As this writer prepared to join the staff in mid-July 2008, a trip was made to Mechanicsville to check out the Tomato Festival. Upon entering Pole Green Park — and seeing people and vehicles in every direction — it was definitely a “Wow!” moment. Attending the festival is a tradition for me too. It was No. 35 for the festival and No. 5 for me. Here’s to many more festivals as we continue to celebrate our tomato! Melody Kinser

Why do county students need two years of remedial work? At the June 12, 2013, meeting of the Hanover County Board of Supervisors, Dr. Gary Rhodes, the president of J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College, thanked the board for the financial help Hanover County taxpayers provide the community college. The statement that after Hanover County students had completed their K-12 education they would come to J. Sargeant Reynolds for two years of remedial work before going on to college was included in Dr. Rhodes’ remarks. Wayne Hazzard, South Anna District supervisor, asked Dr. Rhodes why Hanover County graduates needed two years of remedial work. Dr. Rhodes had no answer. Why do students need two years of remedial work after graduation from Hanover County Public Schools is a question all Hanover County taxpayers should be asking the Hanover County School Board. It costs the county about $9,500 a year to send a child to school. Counting what the parents spend, K-12 costs more than $120,000 per student. After spending this amount a student still needs two years of remedial work. It is hard to believe this is happening, but it is. Your readers say School Board budgets have been cut. This is not true. This year the school system returned $1 million to the county. Your readers say “Teaching to the test” is the problem. Students are failing the test. If teaching to the test was being done, students would pass the test. No student can master the material and still fail the test as claimed by school personnel. The schools make a lot of excuses for poor performance. We must not listen. The schools know what to do. Why are they not doing it is the question. Taxpayers must insist on an answer. Our school personnel are not doing the job they were hired and paid to do. No other can answer can be true. The education bubble is about to burst. We can no longer afford to pay so much and get so little in return. Larnie E. Allgood Mechanicsville

What change can come from bureaucrats probing within? Elton Wade, supervisor from Cold Harbor District, has retired from his $41.25 per hour job as a school crossing guard. Apparently the unfavorable press coverage on this issue has also led the Hanover County Board of Supervisors and Hanover County School Board to conduct a joint review of

personnel policies and salaries. Pardon my skepticism, but do we really expect anything to change for the better when the bureaucrats are investigating themselves? Where has the School Board and Board of Supervisors been for the last 10 years? County officials were informed of this problem in October 2003 by a citizen using the Freedom of Information Act, so spare me all the sudden shock and lame excuses from everybody concerned. Mr. Wade himself could have addressed this issue but chose not to. Mr. Wade’s colleagues on the Board of Supervisors (past and present) apparently didn’t see a problem with his mega-salary or ask how he was going to juggle his duties as a school traffic guard and also attend the 2 p.m. Board of Supervisors meetings at the same time? Over the course of 10 years or more, there have been multiple opportunities for someone in authority to question and stop this kind of waste, fraud and abuse. Where were all the finance experts and budget gurus at the School Board and Hanover County offices? Was a proper internal audit done on the School Board’s employment and salary practices? It appears that basic accounting and budget controls were disregarded at every level so there is more than enough blame to go around. Sometimes it takes a public embarrassment like Mr. Wade’s “sweetheart deal” to expose the greater problem — that our School Board and Board of Supervisors failed in their sworn duty to properly manage 50 percent of the county’s budget. While an investigation at this particular time makes for good political theater, nobody will ultimately be held responsible, asked to make restitution of money, or fired. It is apparent that the so-called experts and our county leaders have failed us in the past and some of the same “foxes are still guarding the henhouse.” see LETTERS, pg. 8

anover Tavern has become the home of a collection of unique Civil War images by Union soldier and mapmaker Robert Sneden. Robert Knox Sneden’s Images from Hanover County opened last month and runs through September at the Tavern. “It’s a very nice and unique collection,� said David Deal, executive director of the Hanover Tavern Foundation. Sneden, a Canadian, joined the Union Army in a New York unit, and marched south in General George McClellan’s Peninsula Campaign in 1862. Many of the 25 images are the result of his mapmaking and draftsman duties on that campaign. “A lot of what he’s drawn, he never even saw,� Deal said. “He was never here in Hanover at the Courthouse or Gaines Mill, but he drew them.� The story of just how Sneden’s thousands of pages of notes and more than 900 images and maps landed at the Virginia Historical Society (VHS) is intriguing, and most of Sneden’s work was unpublished until the late twentieth century. The more than two dozen images that in some way reference Hanover County include numerous maps and watercolor images.

“I came across the art work that was done by Civil War soldier Robert Sneden. After doing some research I found out the entire collection was owned by the Virginia Historical Society,� he said. The collection lay undiscovered in a safe in New England and a mini storage unit in Arizona for years until they were purchased by the VHS and delivered in suitcases in the 1990s. “The guys at the museum just went crazy because this was probably one of the greatest discoveries of unknown Civil War related arts and notes in the twentieth century,� Deal said. Of the 900 works, Hanover County images appeared in 25 of them, and those are the

Who exactly has oversight and is responsible for certifying the outcome of this special review of the School Board? Will there be a report available to the public? Will any citizens be involved?

later in the war and imprisoned in Richmond and later transferred to Camp Lawton and eventually the infamous Andersonville. Some of the only images of the recently discovered Camp Lawton and legendary Andersonville are depictions provided, firsthand, by Sneden. His Hanover works join an ongoing display of unique Hanover artifacts from the Civil War, many provided by

local families in the county. That display is also open daily and features diaries and personal items for Hanover soldiers who served during the war. The tavern also offers a self-guided audio tour of the building with stations depicting its long and gloried history in Hanover County. Sneden’s works were reproduced from the originals owned by the VHS and with

their cooperation and permission. Austin Howlett was in charge of the project for the Tavern Foundation. “He took on the task of building the exhibit and did most of the physical and legwork on this project,” Deal said. The exhibit was made possible with the support of the Cecilia R. and Edna S. Hopkins Foundation.

Correcting info in chimps’ story

port us! I have the letters in my files from all of our neighbors. One single person with close connections to the Hanover County Board of Supervisors managed to keep things stirring nicely. And his extended family has made many overtures of support for us. [Deputy county administrator] Jim Taylor had nothing to do with this decision. Nothing. This deal was made by the Sheppersons and only the Sheppersons with the assistance of Dr. Steve Ross of ChimpCare and The Lincoln Park Zoo. The only reason I became involved in January of this year was because I read in your parent paper that Mr. Taylor had said he would order them executed. I won’t use the word euthanize. He actually said he would order four members of an endangered species executed. What kind of man is that? Dr. Ross will tell you that our chimps are happy and healthy here. As a matter of fact, he recommended that they stay here. It was the county that agreed to the provision that Dr. Ross must okay where their chimps went. He was happy with where they were. He didn’t break his neck to place them. That was not the fault of the Sheppersons of anyone else. The county backed themselves into that corner. Yes, we have an enclosure and not a habitat, just like the ones used in zoos around the

world for hundreds of years, but does anyone care that the Sheppersons had plans to expand to a habitat and were actually going to ask Dr. Ross to design it, since he is the one who designs state-of-the-art chimp facilities in the United States? Does anyone care that the Sheppersons made a quarter of a million dollars’ worth of security improvements and hired more staff? Does anyone care that they carry five times the required insurance on the property and the chimps? Does it matter that they are licensed by both the state and federal authorities for all six chimps? Does anyone care that Windy Oaks Animal Farm has hosted tens of thousands of Hanover County and area residents without one incident of anyone ever being hurt? Does anyone care that the county never bothered to perform inspections on a property they authorized to be used as a zoo? Does it matter that between 2002 and 2010 when the last four chimps came here that Hanover County Animal Control personnel held training out here? What you see here is a county playing a catch up game of cover their a----. Until 2009 and the Nash incident in Connecticut, Hanover County officials sim-

As a person with first-hand knowledge of the Windy Oaks situation, I thought I would write in to correct all incorrect statements in your last story about our chimps, “Chimps get Lone Star reprieve.” Since you apparently hire reporters, instead of journalists who check facts before writing or publishing a story, I thought I’d lend you a hand.

Tomato once again draws thousands to park Photos by Ken Odor for The Local

Tiny Miss and Little Miss Tomato Festival contestants, above, gave a regal wave to the crowd before the announcements of the winners were made after the opening ceremonies. At right, Black Creek Volunteer Fire Department volunteer Beckie Ervin gets dunked at the department’s booth, where they were raising money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Chris Steffi, photo at left, enjoys a bacon, lettuce and Hanover Tomato sandwich. He traveled from Midlothian to take in the festivities — and good food — associated with the Hanover Tomato Festival. At right, Kim Corker poses with a case of tomatoes for sale. She said this was her third year to volunteer for the major fundraising event for the Black Creek Volunteer Fire Department.

Hanover Fire/EMS member Dave Johnson sings “The Star Spangled Banner” during the opening ceremonies.

Mechanicsville resident Marshall Johnson, left, displays his 1932 Chevrolet, adorned with the Hanover County Fire Marshal insignia. Pat Ellis, right, shows off the blackberries she bought. A resident of Black Creek Estates, she said she attended the first festival 35 years ago.

Del. Christopher K. Peace, R-97, presented Sandy Watson with a resolution recognizing her late husband, Oscar, for his many years of service to the Hanover Tomato Festival. Oscar Watson was one of the primary organizers of the Tomato Festival in 1978. He served as president of the Hanover Tomato Festival Committee. This year’s festival, the 35th, was dedicated to Oscar. His daughter Lynn is shown second from the left. Committee members and Black Creek VFD members joined in the ceremony.

We here at Windy Oaks, the people who love these animals and care for their every need, are thrilled with where they are going. It is everything we wanted for them and much, much more. If they couldn’t stay here with us, then we are happy they are going. Now we ask you, please let us have our last few months with our chimps in peace.

ply did not care that there were six chimps on this property. Until they became a potential financial liability to the county, they simply did not care. So the message you can take from this is the county is saying they don’t trust their citizens to do the right thing. If they don’t like something you’re doing, they will make you stop. Your personal property and rights are not safe from the administration and Board of Supervisors. I also think it’s interesting they state no further permits will be issued to the Sheppersons for chimps. They said current permits would not be renewed. How do they know that? Are they planning on being in those seats in 15 or 20 years?

oversight and unmolested by partisan political forces. Independence Day has become a celebration of our nation’s inception; however, its true meaning is to blend the events which led us from being colonies under the control of British authority to a set of autonomous sovereign states. If not for the threat of the world’s most powerful military, Virginia, encompassing the territory from the Atlantic to the Mississippi to the Great Lakes, could have prospered without any allegiance to the other states. It should be remembered that when it adopted the Constitution of the United States 12 years later, Virginia did so with the condition that it could, if it chose, based on the principles included in its Declaration of Rights and the Declaration of Independence, terminate the relation and restore its former sovereignty. Independence Day should be a celebration of that all-tobrief time in our history when the citizens of Virginia were truly free. It should be observed by the public proclamation of our Declaration of Rights, which through an enlightened education would be generally

comprehended and explicable by all Virginians. It also should be an occasion to remind ourselves and the rest of the world of the nature and purpose of government and of the leading role Virginia played in the promotion of universal freedom. Without first freeing the common man, could the ensuing freedoms for all mankind have hoped to come to fruition? David Bryant Mechanicsville

Time to get rid of current IRS

I recently watched the local to see what if anything was being reported on the state-wide candidates running this fall. I wasn’t at all surprised to see the reporting of Terry McAuliffe at a campaign stop somewhere in Northern Virginia and contrasted that with the following story of E.W. Jackson, not of a personal appearance in Mechanicsville where he received a standing ovation, but the reporting instead of a failure to meet a deadline on a loan to his campaign. A technical violation at best and not at all uncommon in the hustle of manning a state-wide campaign with what is largely an all-volunteer staff. McAuliffe in a positive light, and E.W. Jackson as negative as they could find. What should trouble all

The time has come to abolish the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) as we know it. It has proven that it is incapable of governing itself. Consider recent events:  The IRS intentionally and maliciously targeted conservative groups and leaked confidential taxpayer information to Leftist allies;  IRS officials threw lavish parties for themselves, spending millions of dollars even as Americans struggled to keep their jobs and pay their taxes;  Pro-life and Christian groups report extreme and intrusive demands, including one reported demand that a pro-life group promise not to

Congressional treatment Dozens of lawmakers, of course, are getting ready to leave for their summer vacations. Apparently, on both the Republican and Democratic sides, many lawmakers are concerned with ObamaCare due to the fact that the government subsidy premiums will disappear at the end of this year. This means that the subsidies that our legislators get will go away. This will create a skyrocketing premium for dozens of our lawmakers and their aides, and many of them (this is the good news) are considering resigning and quitting.

Don’t leave dogs in parked cars Summer is just starting and already there have been reports from across the country of dogs suffering and dying after being left in hot vehicles. In Sacramento, a litter of nine 1-month-old puppies, along with their mother and father, had to be rescued from a locked car. In Tennessee, two women are facing cruelty charges after one of the three dogs they left in a hot vehicle while they shopped died. It only takes minutes for a parked car to cook an animal alive. On a warm day, even with the windows cracked, the temperature inside a parked car can reach more than 160 degrees. Parking in the shade and /or leaving water in the vehicle won’t help. Dogs can’t cool themselves as efficiently as humans can, and they can succumb to heatstroke in just 15 minutes, resulting in brain damage or death. Symptoms include restlessness, excessive thirst, heavy panting, lethargy, lack of appetite and coordination, dark tongue and vomiting. Please, when it’s even a little warm outside, never leave any living being in a parked car, even for “just a minute.”

Sorry for not being vigilant This is a message to those between the ages of 18 and 40. It is written from a parent’s and /or a grandparent’s perspective. We apologize for not remaining vigilant in protecting your freedom. We have allowed liberalism to redefine what America is without lifting a finger to stop this momentum. Though I have always voted since becoming eligible, I never wanted anything to do with politics; I was naive to the point of thinking that my government would always do the right thing to protect my freedom. That was a huge mistake. It was not until I heard candidate Barack Obama say he wanted to fundamentally change America and talked of Joe the

Plumber about redistributing the wealth that an alarm went off for me. That alarm said, “This is Communism.” Finally I woke up to reality and you also must if you are to remain free.

national prosperity, or dare to say that big federal government is an impediment to solving our nation’s problems – you are an “extremist.” Is this evidence of the upside down society we live in today, or an ignorant one? As the campaign progresses, rest assured the same miscalculation made at the RPV (Republican Party of Virginia) Convention a few weeks ago, believing they could deny the people’s choice of E.W. Jackson as the nominee, the political pundits will do the same. All the talking heads will endlessly pontificate how this man won’t be able to raise enough money, his views on this subject or that subject is “too far out of the mainstream.” If you had been in that room when Jackson visited Mechanicsville, you would have witnessed what is to come. It is just a shame the TV media wasn’t there to do what used to be their job — report the news. Truth is about to give spin the comeuppance it deserves – long overdue. Bob Shannon King William

I don’t care how we get them out of there this is a huge benefit and an unintended consequence of ObamaCare. This is a wonderful thing. Obviously, I am speaking “tongue in cheek,” but nevertheless I am all for anything that will force more Congressional leaders to leave. How they must truly despise being treated like an “everyday” American. Obamacare? It seems there may be a ray of sunshine in everything. Jadine S. Jett Glen Allen

grams for people with intellectual disabilities.” The mission of the Community Services Board is to partner with individuals providing community-based care, supports, and services in the areas of mental health, intellectual disabilities, and substance use disorders in their efforts to lead satisfying and productive lives in their communities. Services specific to Intellectual Disabilities are:  Hanover Industries — a center-based employment program for those interested in working and who may require ongoing support in order to maintain employment. Hanover Industries holds a certificate through the

Department of Labor which enables us to employ persons who are not yet able to be competitively employed.  Day Health and Rehabilitation — a licensed day support service that has been in operation since 1990. Day Health and Rehabilitation provides individualized community integration and life skills training for individuals who are unable to work or choose not to be in an intensive worktraining program.  Hanover Recycling — is a paper recycling business/program that offers training and employment. It holds a certificate through the Department of Labor and wages are paid commensurate with each per-

son’s ability and productivity.  Case Management — provides information and referral as well as individualized help and advocacy to obtain services and resources including education, training, employment, housing, recreation, transportation and financial assistance to people with an intellectual disabilities diagnosis.  Supported Employment — is a vocational option for individuals who require extra assistance to become employed in the community. People with disabilities are employed by community businesses and supported by job coaches providing on the job supports. Through jobs, persons with

disabilities are integrated into the community and encouraged to expand and grow to their maximum potential. “The CSB is excited to welcome Donna,” said Ivy Sager, the agency’s executive director. “I know that her experience, as well as her commitment to serving individuals and families, will be an invaluable asset to the CSB and the ID Division.” Boyce supervises about 50 employees within that division. A native of the Finger Lakes region of New York, Boyce received her undergraduate degree in Business from State University of New York-Empire State College in Saratoga Springs.

She earned her Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Norwich University in Northfield, Vt. She and her husband Daniel have three grown children. Information submitted by Tom Harris, Hanover County public information officer.

Members of Girl Scout Troop 5273 earned the Bronze award, the highest honor a Girl Scout Junior can achieve by cleaning up, beautifying, and planting new flowers in several flower beds at Chickahominy Middle School. This project was inspired by the idea of not only doing something for the school that they will enter in the fall as sixth graders, but also knowing they will be able to see and enjoy the product of their efforts for the three years they will attend CMS. Troop members earning the award are Rachel Foley, Maddie Lindsey, Hallie Meador, Kayla Perkins, Carlin Thompson and Cheyenne Wood.

Police investigating threat at King William High School BY REED WILLIAMS Richmond Times-Dispatch

Twitter.com/TheKWLocal

Authorities are investigating a message scrawled in a bathroom at King William High School that threatens to “kill everyone.” The message was brought to the attention of the school’s principal about 10 a.m. Thursday,

said King William County schools Superintendent Mark Jones. Officials said they are taking the message seriously and will be adding security at county schools today and next week. The message, written in a boy’s bathroom at the school, says, “I will kill everyone.” Written below the threatening words is Monday’s

date. Beside the message is a crudely drawn symbol that authorities said they do not recognize. King William sheriff’s Lt. Tim Hixenbaugh said he has sent a picture of the symbol to law enforcement officials nationwide to see if anyone recognizes it. Authorities on Thursday were

HHS band director elected to elite organization Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com Amy Birdsong, band director at Hanover High School, recently was elected to membership at the American School Band Directors’ Association Regional Conferences. The ASBDA is a national organization composed of professionally trained, experienced directors and teachers of school bands whose pur-

pose is to advance and improve music education of those students engaged in the study of band instruments. Directors are selected on the basis of their teaching experience, the success of their music programs, and the recommendation of members of the prestigious organization. The association consists of about 1,000 band directors from the United States, all of whom wish to cooper-

ate with school administrative officials and educational organizations to provide a rewarding experience for each student of instrumental music. A major objective is to establish and maintain quality instrumental programs in schools nationwide. During the regional conferences, members had discussions, forums, panels, speakers, lectures, technique demonstrations, clinics and perfor-

mances by outstanding bands, all of which encourage the continued improvement and advancement of the school band directors. Some state chapters have annual meetings where the members design and implement special projects. Through active participation in ASBDA, members share ideas, strategies, hear new music, and attend clinics given by nationally known musi-

cians, directors and clinicians. Sharing with other musically recognized directors from all over the United States brings a level of expertise that develops the individual director’s capabilities as a person, a teacher and a musician. Thus, the American School Band Directors’ Association provides benefits to the school and community as well as to the directors selected for membership.

HHS student chosen for Student Leader program Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com A Hanover High School student is among five Richmond area high school students selected to take part in the 2013 Student Leaders program, which awards a total of 225 communityminded high school juniors and seniors from around the country

with paid eight-week summer internships at local nonprofit organizations. The Bank of America Charitable Foundation funds the internships. Zachary Burns of Mechanicsville joins the other local students who are interning at the YMCA of Greater Richmond.

Through his church youth group Zachary has participated in two summer Leadership Development Internships. He also has volunteered in feeding the homeless at The Freedom House in Richmond. Zachary said he hopes to inspire those around him through his leadership skills, and, in doing so, he hopes to establish

ministries and nonprofits that will benefit the community. He said his dream is to start his own business that would build environmentally smart homes, which he would then give away to deserving families. Zachary’s volunteer activities include: student leader in his church youth group, student intern in the Student Leadership Development Internship, team member of E3 Partners Ministry, instructor and captain of Student Organization for Developing Attitudes, ambassador with Hawk Ambassadors, guidance assistant at Hanover High School, volunteer with Help the Gray Family Move! and participant in Hanover High School Iron Chef. Despite gains in the overall job market, Virginia’s state youth unemployment rate is still 16.8 percent. Overall, teens still have the highest unemployment rate: one out of every seven young people is not in school or working.

Research indicates that teens who are gainfully employed have lower dropout rates, are more likely to continue their education to pursue long-term career goals, and ultimately show an increase in lifetime earning potential. That’s why Bank of America started the Student Leaders program. It is part of the company’s ongoing commitment to provide individuals with access and exposure to critical resources that will bolster their work and life skills while also benefiting the community. “Teens are once again facing a tough time finding summer jobs,” said Gary Gore, Virginia and Richmond market president, Bank of America. “Our Student Leaders program provides them the opportunity to earn and learn, while increasing the capacity of nonprofits to serve critical community needs.” In addition to the paid internships, the students will attend a weeklong Bank of America

ZACHARY BURNS Student Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C. Summit activities include a service learning project and a series of interactive workshops, including Capitol Hill briefings and sessions on financial education and leadership development skills. The students gain a deeper understanding of how service creates positive change and how corporate, nonprofit and government collaboration revitalize communities.

Post 175 closes in on top tournament slot By Dave Lawrence dlawrence@mechlocal.com Mechanicsville Post 175 should have been been resting up for the beginning of the American Legion District 11 baseball tournament by now. It certainly tried to its finish regular season on time, but the weather that delayed the season’s start has likewise prolonged its finish. The team is poised to enter the District 11 tournament, which begins Thursday, as the top seed – but still had two doubleheaders, one on Monday and one on Tuesday, to get through before it can claim home-field advantage throughout the tournament. Last year, Post 175 went undefeated throughout the regular season and won the district tournament before being eliminated by Albemarle Post 74 in the Legion state tournament. Post 175 began this year hop-

ing for a return trip to the state tournament, but after a couple of early losses, its chances looked somewhat in doubt. But no more. The team’s 61 defeat of South Richmond Post 137 Sunday at Atlee High School both avenged its second loss of the season as well as capped a long string of victories that left it perched atop the District 11 standings. “We’re sitting good for the playoffs,” said Post 175 coach Eddie Gates. “Still got to keep winning – can’t let up, because if you let up, that’s when things happen that come back to haunt you. We’ve got to keep playing, got to keep that intensity and got to keep scoring those runs first.” With four games remaining, Post 175 is 15-2. As of Sunday, Post 361 was in second place in the District 11 standings with a 17-4 record and Post 137 was third with a 15-5 record. [With

Ballard said. “He was throwing 90-plus consistently the whole game. He had us off-guard. He was getting the breaking ball over. He just pitched a great game. And then he hit a home run for two of the RBIs and then he got a base hit up the middle that scored two more. … All of the damage was done with either his arm or his bat.” Bolka said he did not feel quite right. “I felt OK on the mound. My delivery kind of felt a little weird. I threw maybe three curve balls, but got two outs with it,” Bolka said. “Other than that, I was coasting on fast balls right down the middle, so they were hitting it more than Dave Lawrence/The Local usual.” Mechanicsville Post 175 reliever Sean King shut down South Richmond Post 137 in the ninth Post 137 finished with seven inning to earn a save in Post 175’s 6-1 victory at Atlee High School Sunday. hits, half of that tallied by Post two victories over Post 361, Post tournament outright.] the plate Sunday proved devas- 175.

Post 206 aiming for top half of District 13 order By Dave Lawrence dlawrence@mechlocal.com With the American Legion’s regular season winding down, Ashland Post 206 looked to finish in the middle of the pack as it approaches the start of the District 13 tournament Friday. It improved its chances of such a finish with a 8-6 come from

behind victory over Staunton Post 13 at Patrick Henry High School Sunday. After falling behind 6-2, Post 206 took advantage of a Post 13 roster depleted of pitching, scoring five runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to take the lead. Ashland added an insurance run in the bottom of

the seventh. “We beat them when their pitching was weak and they made some mistakes,” said Post 206 manager Earl Steele. The rally started with one out in the sixth. Joe Bugas singled and Chris Peterson walked. One out later, Nathan Steele singled to load the bases,

and Hunter McKinney singled to drive in Bugas. Brett Whitlow reached on an error that scored Peterson, and Cody Crawley singled in Steele to bring Post 206 within a run of Post 13. Chris Estep followed up with a single to score McKinney and Whitlow and put Post 206 on top, 7-6.

Afterward, Post 13 struggled to get runners on base. “We quit scoring. They kept scoring,” said Post 13 manager Mark Patterson. “We made a few errors, they capitalized on it – that’s baseball.” Staunton’s depleted roster contributed to the team’s demise.

“I’ve got 16 [on the roster], I’ve got six gone,” Patterson said. “We play with what we’ve got. We don’t make excuses.” Five of his absent players were pitchers, however. Post 206 had more arms to choose from, and they prevented Post

Tommy Galloway tournament stays in the family By Danny Polk sports@mechlocal.com Hermitage Country Club hosted the 72nd annual Tommy Galloway father-son golf tournament July 11 and 12. The tournament played host to 170 teams on a rainy and overcast set of days. Four shotgun start, best ball rounds were designated, with a morning round and an afternoon round each day played on Hermitage’s Manakin course. The morning round on Friday was postponed to a later date due to the wet course conditions. In the field was Mills Godwin High School junior Mark Lawrence Jr. who teamed up with his father Mark Lawrence Sr. The duo looked to repeat as tournament champions, chasing Thursday’s leaders Hank and Knox Milligan, who posted a one under par 71. The Lawrence duo made their first move when they birdied #2, a 532 yard par five. They finished with a 2-under-par 70, enough to top Thursday’s leaders by a stroke, but not enough to take the title. Ed and Kevin McGeorge posted a 3-under 69 to claim the tournament’s low score.

The Tommy Galloway tournament is one of the longest running tournaments in the Richmond area. “I think so many teams are attracted to the tournament because of Mr. Galloway’s legacy,” Holmes said. “I also think the hard work and dedication of Rocky (Hermitage head golf professional) has allowed this tournament to continue for over 70 years,” The Holmes weren’t the only competitors with a legacy in the tournament. Mark Lawrence Sr. and his dad Walter won the tournament in 1974 and went on to win it three more times. Mark Sr. and his son Mark Jr., who placed fourth in the VHSL group AAA tournament this past season and led Mills Godwin to the team state title, won the tournament for the first time in 2008 and then again in 2010 and 2012. Despite the uncooperative forecast, the tournament was Danny Polk/The Local able to live up its expectations (of a tournament with such a Mark Lawrence Jr. watches his father, Mark Sr., tee off during the Tommy Galloway father-son golf tournament at Hermitage Country Club Friday. rich history and tradition.) “The tournament was a great Also in the field was Will the tournament is named after. grandson of William Galloway, fathers and sons to spend time experience and we are looking Ford, who is the great-grand- Will teamed up with Skip Ford, paired with his father Beau. together,” Beau Holmes said. forward to coming back again.” son of Tommy Galloway, whom while Will Holmes, the great“Golf is a great game for “Today was a great experience.” Holmes said.

“I think the meet went really well,” said Burkwood dive coach Sidney Glass. “I think our kids are beginning to hit their stride in the season. They’re really starting to be able to perform to the level they can perform to.” Burkwood benefitted from greater depth, with 13 winners to six for Avalon, and with a greater number of its divers finishing in scoring positions.

Commander was pleased with the improvement of some of her mites – kids aged 9 and under – especially Smith and Owen Amrhein, who claimed the top two spots in the boys’ 9-under novice division. “My two mite boys have come extremely far,” Commander said, but she was happy overall. “I’m just really pleased with how everybody did in each of their events.” Glass was likewise happy with the improvement in some of his younger divers. “Our 9-year-old and unders did extremely well,” Glass said. “We had several people qualify for [the JRAC championships] that have never qualified before.

We had several people go up in their division – not age up – but like, if they were in the novice category and won their division, they were bumped up to the regular category, or from regular to X.” Among those who advanced to a higher level include Hasley, from girls’ 9-under novice to regular; Pastore, from girls’ 10-11 novice to regular; and Gordon, from boys’ 9-under regular to X. “In general, the team, I feel like probably 95 percent of the team has their best meet they had all season,” Glass said. “They just showed up and performed.”

13 from mounting a comeback. Chris Peterson started, Hunter McKinney was brought in in the seventh inning and Nathan Steele closed the ninth. Earl Steele said McKinney’s performance was critical. “He got us out of a pinch in the seventh inning, because Peterson had two men on base and McKinney got us out of there with three straight outs,” Earl Steele said. So McKinney did an awesome job. McKinney only faced seven batters and got six outs.” Crawley, Estep, McKinney and Steele got two hits apiece.

Crawley and Estep each had a double, which Crawley knocking in three runs and Estep knocking in two. McKinney had an RBI and scored two runs. Chase Sprouse and Kody Riley led Post 13, each hitting two-run home runs – with Sprouse’s coming in the second inning and Riley’s in the fifth. Post 206 hopes to get in the top half of the District 13 standings, a task made more complex by several weather-related postponements. “Right now, I’m trying really hard to get into fourth place,” Earl Steele said. “Right now, we’ve got [two] games left … with [Post] 89, but we only have one of them scheduled.”

Boys (Ages 6-14) • Six week season begins week of Sept 9th • One practice and one game per week. (Courthouse Park)

He said that, while other teams are likewise scrambling to make up games prior to the start of the district tournament, Post 206 may be a bit better off. “Other teams are having the same problem that we’re having,” Earl Steele said. “Maybe even worse, because we’re fielding a team every night. Some of these guys are having a hard time fielding a team. Maybe that will change when we get to the districts.” Post 13..................030 021 000 – 6 9 1 Post 206...............002 005 01x – 8 9 0 Brown, Davis (8) and Cale.

Pebble Creek swimmers edge Mechanicsville By Dave Lawrence dlawrence@mechlocal.com The weather could not dampen the enthusiasm for swimming at Pebble Creek last week. Mechanicsville visited Pebble Creek for a Greater Richmond Aquatic League swim meet Wednesday, but thunderstorms sweeping through the area forced everyone out of the pool and, after nearly two hours of delays, forced the teams to postpone competition. The weather proved no obstacle Thursday, however, and dozens of swimmers ranging from less than 8 up to 18 years of age gathered to finish what they had started. By the time it was over, the Pebble Creek Piranhas edged the Mechanicsville Marlins 1,1981,036. The teams were close all night. “Event 30, I think Pebble Creek was up by four points,” said Pebble Creek coach Justain Murphy. “We knew it was going to be a close meet going in. … The [final] score proved true to that. It was close the whole way, back and forth. We swapped leads a few times, so it was exciting. It made it really interesting.” One of the reasons why the meet was so interesting was that the two teams were fairly evenly matched in terms of numbers. “Summer-league swimming is all a numbers game,” Murphy said. “If you don’t have the numbers, you can’t compete.

… The past three teams that we’ve swam, we haven’t had the numbers, so we haven’t been competitive. This meet, we both have about the same numbers, so we knew it was going to be a good meet going in.” Several Piranhas had multiple top finishes. Among the boys, they are: Tyler Donachy in the 8-and-under 100-meter individual relay, the 25 freestyle and 25 butterfly; Jayden Hill in the 9-10 50 backstroke, 50 butterfly, 50 freestyle, and as a member of the fastest 8under 100 mixed relay team; Sam Patterson in the 11-12 50 breaststroke and 50 butterfly; Jack Pendlebury in the 13-14 100 backstroke, 50 freestyle, and as a member of the top 13-14 mixed relay team; Van Pearce in the 15-18 100 individual medley and as a member of the top 1518 mixed relay team; and Caleb Ebert in the 100 butterfly and 100 mixed relay. Multiple top finishers among the Pebble Creek girls are: Carsyn Poppa in the 7-8 25 backstroke ad 25 freestyle; Savannah Shaver in the 9-10 50 breaststroke, 50 butterfly, 50 freestyle and as a member of the fastest 9-10 mixed relay team; Molly Sheffield in the 13-14 100 individual medley, 50 breaststroke, 100 butterfly and as a member of the top 13-14 mixed relay team; Morgan Boyle in the 13-14 backstroke, 50 freestyle and 13-14 mixed relay; and Melissa Davis in the 15-18 100 backstroke, 100 butterfly, 50 freestyle, and as a member of the top 15-18 mixed relay team.

Mechanicsville likewise had a number of multiple winners. Among the boys are: Andrew Farrar in the 6-and-under 20 backstroke, 25 breaststroke and as a member of the fastest 8-under mixed relay team; Brendan Farrar in the 11-12 50 backstroke, 50 freestyle, and as a member of the top 11-12 mixed relay team; Austin Farrar in the 13-14 100 individual medley and 100 butterfly; and Scott Simmons in the 15-18 100 backstroke and 50 breaststroke. On the girls’ side, the Marlins’ multiple winners are: Raegan Ball in the 8-under 100 individual medley and 25 butterfly; Jenna Hill in the 8-under 25 breaststroke and as a member of the 8-under mixed relay team; Alison Harvey in the 910 100 individual medley and 50 backstroke; and Sara Gaston in the 11-12 50 backstroke, 50 breaststroke, 50 freestyle, and as a member of the top 100 mixed relay team. While having winners is nice, Mechanicsville coach Adam Carter is more interested in having kids with a good work ethic on his team. “I’m definitely happy with those who actually come to practice and put in a lot of work beforehand,” Carter said. But work is not the most important thing. “It’s just all in good fun. We’re having a great time out here,” Carter said. “At the end of the day, the scores really don’t matter. It’s just that the kids have a good time. That’s all that’s important to me.”

Bryant Lowry had two hits, one a double and the other a two-run home run. Cody Powers had two more hits for Mechanicsville. Monday, Post 175 faced Lakeside Post 125, a team in the middle of the District 11 standings that it cannot take lightly. “They’ve been playing very well,” Gates said. “We’ve got to be on our game. We went over there and where behind the whole game – until about the seventh inning, I believe – and then we came back and scored some runs and won 8-5.” Post 175 next had to face Colonial Heights Post 284 Buccaneers Tuesday. It had to go against the Buccaneers with-

got a strong team. They’ve got good pitching, so they’re going to be very formidable in the playoffs.” Post 137..............000 000 100 – 1 7 0 Post 175..............000 220 02x – 6 14 0 Michael Flanagan, Michael Day (5) and H.J.
