“We are anxiously awaiting the beginning of school and, certainly, preparing the best learning environment for them (the students).” That was the statement made by Dr. Jamelle Wilson, superintendent of Hanover County Public Schools, as Hanover County School Board members gathered Tuesday, Aug. 13, for their last regular meeting before the 2013-2014 term begins. Kathy Easter, representing Friends of Hanover Schools, told the School Board it’s important to address the issue of teacher attrition in county schools. “It’s a huge concern for parHiring figures don’t appear to support claims of an unusual number of teachers leaving Hanover County schools — at least not compared with other years.

Hanover County School Board Chairman Robert Hundley, photo at left, presided over last week’s meeting, the last before the 2013-2014 term of Hanover County Public Schools begins on Sept. 3. Cold Harbor representative Norman Sulser, right, announced his retirement from his position as a substitute teacher at Lee-Davis High School. He said he plans to devote his time to School Board duties.

Hanover County schools — at least not compared with other years. At a workshop session last week, Assistant Superintendent Charla Cordle said this year’s turnover was about average at around 100 positions, not a notable increase from last year’s numbers. “I am personally aware of a whole lot more teachers who did not find positions outside of the school system who are still here. A lot of these teachers are not being vocal,” Easter said. Easter said it’s important to know why teachers are leaving and where they are going. “If you haven’t done exit inter-

views, I would encourage you to do so.” Newly-appointed Cold Harbor District School Board representative Norman Sulser said he would resign from his position as a substitute teacher at Lee-Davis High School. “I’ve loved the fun of teaching and working for the students for the past 12 years,” Sulser said. “In my new role as a School Board member, I don’t want anyone to have the perception that I am only focused on Lee-Davis.” Sulser said he wanted to commit his time to his School see HIRING, pg. 4 

tudent achievement is paramount to Dr. Jamelle S. Wilson as superintendent of Hanover County Public Schools. In her third year at the helm and preparing for the Sept. 3 start of the 2013-2014 term, she talked candidly last week about the renowned school division. Her performance since taking the top office in 2011 apparently has met with the approval of the Hanover County School Board. In May, her contract was extended to June 30, 2017. Wilson made history two

years ago when she was named to succeed Dr. Stewart D. Roberson as superintendent. She became the first female and African American to hold the school district’s top seat. In recent months, controversy seemed to swirl around the school system’s operations – from budget struggles to the wage of a crossing guard, who is a member of the Hanover County Board of Supervisors. Cold Harbor District representative Elton Wade resigned in June from his $41.25 an hour job. He had been employed by the school system for 52 years. Last Wednesday, however, Wilson maintained see WILSON, pg. 4

atthew Rohr, who is preparing for his freshman year at the University of Virginia, was inspired by a physics teacher during his junior year at Atlee High School. And that sparked involvement in a contest that paid off and put him the spotlight. “I’ve always been a math and science person,” Matthew said, “but physics really opened my eyes to the beauty of the natural world. No doubt, my teacher, Jeremy Watts, is partly to blame for that.” He said Watts’ “enthusiastic teaching style, as well as his use of visual experiments in explanation, show how cool physics is. His classroom and the walls outside it are littered with posters that explain certain physics concepts, discoveries and Nobel laureates’ body of work.” Matthew noticed the posters in Watts’ classroom of past winners of the American Association of Physics Teachers’ High School Physics Contests. The first time he went into Watts’ class, he said he was “drawn to some of the winning pictures. At first I thought they were just cool photos he found online, but when I got a chance to read more of the content, I realized that these were photos taken by high school students around the country.” He decided he wanted to

– and just where to get it. That’s an area where we’re challenged to get people to know that.” Continuous improvement is another area Wilson promotes as superintendent. She said it’s been the division’s goal for 20 to 25 years. “We know that we are not perfect; no school division, no organization is perfect. But I would say that we are good perhaps better than good – but we always want to get better and we cannot rest on what we have done.” Wilson said the SAT (Scholastic Assessment Test), the Standards of Learning assessment results, the number of students graduating prove that the system’s performance remains strong. “I think that’s an accomplishment, especially in light of changes that we’ve made on the staffing side as a result of budget constraints.

Due to the variety of technical and vocational careers offered, the school division’s business partners “have really embraced those children that go to that school.” And, because of those programs, those students are becoming employed. “They’re learning what it means to be a contributing citizen. They’re learning a trade or industry certification.” Accolades continue to be a major part of the way the schools function. “If we look at the last two years worth of those accolades, I believe you see very little difference between these last two years and 10 years ago.

“With the technology we have available today, why should a citizen have to drive to Ashland to get these minutes?” Sulser asked. Wilson pointed out that a Board Notes summary is available online. “I’m talking about the minutes,” Sulser responded. “I don’t know if I’ve said

this to you, but we are moving toward a process that will allow us easier access to putting those minutes online and easily available,” Wilson said. No timetable was provided. During a public comment period at last Tuesday’s session, parent Hank Marshall addressed the parking permit policy at county schools that only allows

juniors and seniors the right to park on campus. His son, a sophomore, was denied a permit due to his grade level, but Marshall asked for an exemption. “If it were Lee-Davis [High School], I’d understand. The parking there is very restrictive,” Marshall said. He said he examined the school’s policy and discovered

there was no differentiation of class designation and parking was available on a space available basis. Marshall said there is space available at Hanover High School, where officials told him that his son, a sophomore, could possibly receive a permit after the first semester. “If he can get a parking

permit at the end of the first semester, then why not now?” Marshall asked. “Traffic control came up as being the issue today. If you think about it, we would improve the traffic control. The car would only be there one time a day,” Marshall said. “It’s not juniors and seniors only, that’s not what the guidebook says.”

Happy Anniversary to our special theatre Hanover Tavern boasts many reasons to visit and a favorite is the Barksdale Theatre. “Steel Magnolias” is being presented as this local treasure celebrates a significant anniversary: Sixty years ago, the Barksdale was founded, thanks to some transplanted New Yorkers. The performances have been extraordinary since 1953 and we are incredibly fortunate to have the talent that takes the stage there. “Steel Magnolias” continues the standard that has been synonymous with the Barksdale Theatre. A strong cast and crew bring to life a play filled with laughs and a few tears — but, most of all, fine acting. I’ll be the first to admit — too often, we take for granted the wonderful offerings made available to us. That’s why keeping up with the theatre schedule throughout our area — but especially the Barksdale — is on my to-do list. It’s an experience in itself to walk the same halls as Revolutionary War notables such as Hanover County’s own Patrick Henry. History fills the rooms of the Hanover Tavern and, you never know, there just might be some spirits lingering from long ago. While it’s a given that the Barksdale is important to those of us who call Hanover County home, it also has had an impact on the region by providing an outlet for history-making moments. In the “Wow!” category, it was enlightening to learn that the Barksdale defied Jim Crow laws by opening its doors to integrated audiences. In 1973, the first professional play based on the African American experience, “To Be Young, Gifted and Black” by Lorraine Hansberry, was produced at the Barksdale. The Barksdale Theatre and Theatre IV, which was founded in 1975, combined their talents and resources to form the Virginia Repertory Theatre. There is a certainty in the union: We will continue to be entertained by an outstanding group of dedicated professionals. To Muriel McAuley and Pete and Nancy Kilgore, we say thank you for coming to Hanover County and bringing us a stage for creative talent. Happy Anniversary to the Barksdale Theatre and may you celebrate many more! We do so enjoy being part of your audience. Melody Kinser

Biblical stories need to apply to today’s world Let me ask you: What good does it do to teach the stories of Daniel and the lions’ den, and John the Baptist, and Samson, and David and Goliath, etc., ad infinitum, if you are not going to apply those stories to the practical, day-today events we are experiencing now? What good does it do to preach expository messages on The Bible if one does not make those messages relevant to the times and circumstances in which we live? Yet, eartickling, entertainment and irrelevant exposition seem to be what the modern church in America excels in. The result: ineffective, impotent, weak, unprepared and sheepish Christians. Yes, I know there are many churches and Christian ministries that are doing admirable work. We need homeless shelters, food banks, pregnancy resource centers, addiction ministries, etc. We most definitely need pastors and churches to preach the Gospel of Christ. We need missionary outreach. But we also need pastors and churches to teach the Biblical Natural Law principles of liberty and to prepare their congregations to guard and defend our freedom. John Louis Mechanicsville

Changing school hours may be the solution Four days after reading The Mechanicsville Local headline “Pay frozen for top grade workers,” guess what, I saw

one of those workers at a local restaurant spending cold hard cash. I was concerned they were keeping the pay in the freezer of that government employed guy but it looks like it’s being kept local. Has anyone from the county taken notice of the lack of traffic on the roadways now that school is out for the summer? This should be a wake-up call that there are solutions available for the morning and evening traffic problems. The taxpayers deserve better than sitting behind a school bus, a post office mail carrier or the schools’ open traffic on our way to and from work. As kids prefer to stay up late and sleep late, why not change the school hours say, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Those hours would keep the school traffic off the highways at rush hour and allow the working taxpayers to go to and from work with less stress. Why should we get up two hours early and follow a school bus or get home late because of being behind mail carriers that stop at every house? Let me suggest that the post office work out a deal with the county to have the mail picked up and delivered by school bus or have the county work out a deal with the post office to have the kids picked up and delivered by the mail carrier. We don’t need both of them on the highway. When the bus stops to pick up a kid, they can simply throw the mail in the box or wait until evening and let the kids carry it in the house. The money paid to the county by the post office can go into the freezer along with the School Board’s frozen pay. When the frozen School Board budget thaws they’ll have more money to continue with their uncontrolled spending. By the way, elimination of the mail carriers would save the post office enough money that they could again hire three people for every job and insure permanent closure of the United States Postal Service. Getting home to see the evening news is important to taxpayers. We like to be informed of the latest rip-offs so it’s imperative that we get home quickly to start drinking wine. see LETTERS, pg. 8

At a recent Hanover County School Board meeting, Dr. Donna Boone was back again addressing the bullying issue in Hanover County Public Schools. She was accompanied by her grandson Andrew, whose nose was broken in a fight at school

He urged School Board members to approach the bullying problem on a student level. “I’ve learned to not like school. I didn’t want to go. I’m concerned that this may happen to me but the many others who are not here tonight,� Andrew said. As long as parents remain silent, Boone said the problem will continue and that her speaking out has resulted in repercussions against her family. “I’ve come because I think it’s a moral obligation for me to tell you what’s going on when other people are silent,� Boone said during the public comment

Virginia Convention, meeting in Williamsburg, adopted a resolution that stated that the colonies were to be free and independent states. In the following weeks, the convention adopted a written constitution, a declaration of rights, and selected Patrick Henry as the first governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia. The convention also instructed Richard Henry Lee to present this Virginia Resolution to the General Congress in Philadelphia. The Commonwealth of Virginia thus became the first free and independent state in the Western Hemisphere. It was not only free from the callous British Parliament and Crown, but also free from the tyranny of self-serving politicians pandering to special interest groups or the strangling regulation of intolerant bureaucrats. The highest authority in the Commonwealth then was the people, unburdened by federal oversight and unmolested by partisan political forces. Independence Day has become a celebration of our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inception; however, its true meaning is to blend the events that 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 worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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

at cronyism, raising taxes and growing government.â&#x20AC;? Bob Shannon, president of the Mechanicsville organization, echoed Sarvisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frustration with the political party

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-toobrief 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

one, including the PETA staff. In recent years, as Ebertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s online work increased, he found a forum to more fully address social issues affecting, among others, animals, the environment and human health. Writing about the comedy â&#x20AC;&#x153;Best in Show,â&#x20AC;? he acknowledged his affection for dogs, adding, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but I cannot understand dog shows, which make dogs miserable while bringing out the worst traits of their owners.â&#x20AC;? Ebert called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Forks Over Knives,â&#x20AC;? a documentary examining the effect of animal-based diets on our health, â&#x20AC;&#x153;a film that could save your life,â&#x20AC;? and offered this assessment: â&#x20AC;&#x153;What every human being should do is eat a vegetarian diet based on whole foods. Period. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s it. Animal protein is bad for you. Dairy is bad for you. Forget the ads: Milk and eggs are bad for you.â&#x20AC;? Other recent blogs and tweets touched on how factory farming harms the hungry, his own transition to vegan foods, and watching chimpanzees newly freed from a laboratory as they first experience the outside world. PETA encourages people concerned about injustice toward other beings to follow Roger Ebertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s compassionate example by speaking out. The balcony is open.

Members of Troop C336 traveled to Summit Bechtel Reserve near Mount Hope, W.Va., to participate in Jamboree 2013.

Local Scout shares experiences of Jamboree 2013 By Thomas Darby for The Mechanicsville Local (Editor’s note: The following was written and submitted by Thomas Darby, a member of Jamboree Troop C336.) ime was already ticking down toward Jamboree 2013 in Summit Bechtel Reserve near Mount. Hope in West Virginia! My troop had seen a brief recruiting video and learned that this “would not be our fathers’ Jamboree.” It was time to sign up! Signing up wasn’t just saying you wanted to attend. It was saying you were prepared to commit to a longterm camping experience and with some updated requirements. Some of these requirements included being a

T

First Class, filling out the application and getting a recommendation from your scoutmaster. One of the new requirements for this jamboree was the updated physical form, which had to be posted online. It was very important for scouts to maintain a healthy Body Mass Index because this jamboree was a new high adventure site and would consist of lots of walking. Some scouts walked, others ran, and still others biked, to prepare for some of the high venture activities, including Zip lines, BMX, Climbing, Skating, Fishing, and Hiking. We also were given a list of 24 different activities, also referred to as curriculum activities that we had to rank numerically 1 to 24 and post

online at the official Jamboree sign-up site. My Jamboree Troop C336 started planning in February 2013. Planning was not a one-time process as e-mails and calls flew back and forth between scouts, parents and scoutmasters. One of the various items we had to attend to was listing our interests as well as taking a photograph for the purposes of credentials, which were passed out at the Jamboree site. A shakedown weekend at Camp T. Brady Saunders was a good preparatory camping trip and we focused on team-building exercises as well as cooperation within the patrols and the troop. Last-minute preparations included receiving duffel bags, t-shirts, day

packs, hats, windbreakers and a whole plethora of other packing with equipment. If items didn’t fit in the duffel, they didn’t go. We were encouraged to take CPR and First Aid training. Upon completing all this hustle and bustle, Troop C336 was ready to go on Monday, July 15. We left from Camp T. Brady Saunders at 10 a.m. to go to what would be the experience of a lifetime! The jamboree had many exciting events, including, shows, fireworks, guest speakers, religious observances for many different denominations, numerous activities for scouts and venture scouts to participate in and of course very thin rations of food. The opening show was on Tuesday

and it was well worth the long wait in line just to get in. We were there an hour early and still the line was unbelievable. The Jamboree had almost 50,000 participants and it was amazing that they were able to fit everyone in the space for the Summit AT&T Stadium. The guest speakers and scouting executive members were phenomenal and it was a warm welcome to the first-ever Jamboree in Summit Bechtel Reserve. It was a great start and a promising sign of the adventure to come. If the opening the show was good, the closing (Middle of the Week Show) was spectacular with guests Mike Rowe and the King of Sweden

A good time was had by all! Crab Feast ’13 was sold out before Saturday’s annual event. The major fundraiser of Hanover Firefighters fills Hanover Cold Harbor Ruritan Park in Mechanicsville. In addition to lots of good food, entertainment is a highlight of the day. The music brought this group to their feet for some dancing by the stage. More photos on pages 18 and 24.

The Hanover County Pound located at 12471 Taylor Complex Lane in Ashland has two wonderful pets available to a good home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bunnyâ&#x20AC;? (ID #328735) is a 3-year-old neutered white/grey domestic shorthair. He is friendly and good with other cats. He is up-to-date on vaccinations, including rabies, and is FELV/FIV negative. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bouncerâ&#x20AC;? (ID #328736) is a 3-year-old neutered black/white domestic shorthair. He too is friendly, good with other cats, up-todate on vaccinations, including rabies and is FELV/FIV negative. For more information on these two great pets, as well as the many more still in need of homes at the Hanover County Pound Facility, call 804-365-6485 during the day. The hours are 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday; 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday; and 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday.

period. Assistant superintendent Daryl Chesley presented recommendations that resulted from a Character Education focus panel that met three times earlier this spring to amend and revise the current bullying policy. Chesley said the group endorses an alignment that recently passed House Bill 1871, which clearly defines bullying and supports professional development of staff and effective communication with parents and students. The panel advised that administrators in schools continue to head the adoption and implementation of Character Education programs in their buildings. The panel also recommended a review of the county’s current policy regarding use of per-

“I’m wondering why we wouldn’t try a pilot program to see how that worked on the basis of some imperical evidence that the other doesn’t appear to be working as well as we would like it,” Lowry said. “I’m wondering if this committee gave consideration to evaluation or allowing student input.” Superintendent Jamelle Wilson said reported incidents of bullying in Hanover County Public Schools has fallen over the past four years, with a high of 63 in 2008-2009 and a low of 24 in 2011-2012. “To your comment that perhaps the programs we have are not working, we can look at the data as it’s being reported to the Virginia Department of Education. Given this information, there’s some data to suggest that our number of incidents are declining or not going the other way,” Wilson said. Boone chuckled at those fig-

ures, and said they don’t represent the real number of cases in Hanover schools. Boone said the final version of the policy reflected almost none of her ideas or suggestions, and relied on old and outdated policies with minor revisions. Basically, the revised program leaves the responsibility of administering character education in Hanover schools to each campus administrator and relies on established organizations in the schools to address the problem. “They don’t want an outsider to come in and see what’s really going on,” Boone said. “Even though I have a doctorate degree and this is my area of expertise, they will not use my offer to implement a program that works.” Board members will review the suggested revisions and take action at next month’s meeting.

day later and it was well worth the wait. There were approximately 2,100 shells used within the fireworks show. To say we enjoyed the fireworks would be fair. It was awesome being so close that you could actually feel the shockwave that resulted from the explosions. We found the 10 days of camping to be some of the best

camping days of our lives. All the high adventure activities were amazing and it felt good to give back to the community on our Day of Service where the troops did numerous service projects throughout the region. I highly recommend that any scout who wants to go on

an awesome long-term camping trip be prepared to enjoy Jamboree 2017 at Bechtel Summit Reserve. It was hard work, but we went and I believe I speak for the whole troop when I say “It was a great trip and I only wish it could happen more than once every four years.”

sonal technology devices in the classroom. Boone, who served on the focus group, said she did not endorse the recommendations presented by Chesley and described the process as “lip service.” She has made numerous appearances at School Board meetings, outlining a comprehensive overhaul of the county’s current bullying policy with an emphasis on student-based solutions. Boone said those recommendations were rejected by school administrators. Hank Lowery, who represents the Ashland District on the School Board, said the revised policy might be better served by following some of the recommendations and conducting student-based interviews and evaluations. He said the current policy is perhaps not “working as well as they could.”

that he said has abandoned any conservative principles. “Why do the other two candidates refuse to allow Mr. Sarvis in the debates? Are they afraid to share the stage with him? What impressed me was his calm, reasoned policy positions on a few social issues that might turn off certain social conservatives,” Shannon said. Shannon said that liberty, economic and spending issues are at the very heart of the TEA Party movement, not the social

issues. He also said that the U.S Constitution does not even address the issue of marriage. “You can’t selectively pick and choose when you want to abide by the Constitution, as does our current president. Some matters are left to the states, such as marriage,” Shannon added. The Mechanicsville TEA Party meets the first and third Thursday of each month.

Wilson said. “We lose ground when we look back. We can’t lose ground; we’ve got to keep looking forward.” Once again, the word excellent comes to the forefront. “Forward means excellence. Forward means accountability. Forward means relevance.” Facility maintenance has been a priority this summer. After having identified projects, including aesthetic and minor structural work, new doors have been installed, windows have been painted, and roofs have been repaired. With the first day of the 2013-2014 fast approaching, Wilson said they have a goal that children and their families arrive and see that time, effort and energy have been given to prepare for them. She said they are realistic to the decline in student enrollment and new construction is not a capital expense on the immediate horizon. The focus has turned to aging buildings. The School Board has been supportive and the Board of Supervisors has allowed the School Board to allocate funds. As work continues with that Sept. 3 start looming, Wilson said she is “excited to see what everything looks like. I’m confident we’re going to get the majority of them done by Sept. 3 and will continue to work on the first few weeks of school.”

Dr. Jamelle Wilson, superintendent of Hanover County Public Schools, volunteered her time to take a child shopping for back-to-school. As part of YMCA Bright Beginnings, Wilson â&#x20AC;&#x201D; along with 24 other volunteers and two staff members from the Atlee Station Family YMCA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; helped 20 local students select two new outfits, shoes, socks, underwear and a new jacket to start the upcoming school year. The students on that particular trip were from Cool Spring Elementary School, Washington Henry Elementary School, Mechanicsville Elementary School and Pole Green Elementary School. Huntington National Bankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual Backpack Index shows school supply prices jumped an average of 7.3 percent this year. This can be a significant sum for most families, particularly those from low-income households. Wilson said she understands how difficult it is for families unsure if they have the resources to enjoy a back-to-school shopping trip. She also said this is her way of giving children confidence in the school year ahead and supporting a program like YMCA Bright Beginnings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love being around children; there is nothing like the energy you feel being around

Land Use Taxation Program application period starts Sept. 1 Hanover County landowners who use their property for agricultural, horticultural or forestal uses or keep it in open space are invited to enroll in the Land Use Taxation Program. Under this program, qualified landowners can have their property assessed at “use value,” which may be lower than market value. This would reduce their real property taxes. The application period for this

program begins Sept. 1, 2013, and extends through Nov. 1, 2013, with an additional enrollment period from Jan. 1, 2014 to Feb. 1, 2014. In order to qualify for the tax deduction, the property must be zoned for agricultural uses and have been in agricultural, horticultural, forest or open space uses for at least five years. Property that has been zoned Rural Conservation (RC) also can qualify for

the Land Use program. The minimum qualifying acreages are five acres for agricultural, horticultural and open space and 20 acres for forest use. A one-acre house site is allowed in all categories. Requirements and values are established by the State Land Evaluation Advisory Council. If the land use is changed, the tax reduction must be repaid with simple interest for the cur-

rent tax year and a maximum of the previous five tax years. Participants with acreage or use changes must reapply and revalidate their eligibility. Revalidation also is required after six years even if there is no change in land use. There is no charge for this revalidation. A $10 filing fee is charged on each new application. Applications will not be accepted if there are any delinquent

taxes on the property. For more information about the Land Use Program or other tax relief programs offered by Hanover County, call the Commissioner of the Revenue at 804-365-6125 or visit www. co.hanover.va.us/comrevnu/default. htm.

She also said she appreciated the efforts of “those that helped arrange and make the shipment of books possible. This would not have been successful without the support of the Mechanicsville residents and their donations.”

The Windsor subdivision in Mechanicsville was one of the hardest hit areas on Saturday, Aug. 10, when a strong storm, packing high winds, rolled through Hanover County. Despite speculation that a tornado had struck, the National Weather Service said the weather impact was due to wind conditions. These scenes show trees snapped and downed.

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

Song sings victory tune at Eagle Classic By Dave Lawrence dlawrence@mechlocal.com For the first two days of the Eagle Classic at Richmond Country Club this weekend, golfers battled primarily against each other and themselves. For the final day on Sunday, they had to battle the weather, too. One might call it the Battle of Sodden Field. But in a performance that demonstrated as little inclination to let up as the rain that fell ceaselessly from first tee to final putt Sunday, Christine Song of Fullerton, Calif., led all three days of the tournament to claim a three-stroke victory over four second-place finishers in the Symetra tour event. Song finished the tournament with an 8-under-par score of 206. Jean Chua of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Kendall Dye of Edumond, Okla., Stefanie Kenoyer of Lighthouse Point, Fla., and Perrine Delacour of Saint-Cloud, France finished at 5-under 211. On a day when squeegeemen on the greens were the tournament heroes, Song focused on tuning out the distractions. “My feet are wet, and my toes are wet, and so all I was trying to do was to try to zone out the rain,” Song said. “I guess she first stepped on the course that’s what I did today.” Sunday, however. She did not do too good of “I wasn’t hitting it good a job zoning things out when the first couple of holes,” Song

said. But the weather gave her a much-needed timeout shortly after 11 a.m. when the rain rendered the course unplayable.

Before play resumed at 1:30 p.m., golfers were allowed some time on the driving range. “I think the break, the delay got me more focused,” Song said. “Thankfully they let us hit some balls on the range before we went out and I think I fixed it.” Song’s first birdie of the day, which came after the break, helped boost her confidence. She got some added motivation to do well mid-way through the round when she noticed a host of golfers tied for second.

“I did see [the scores] on nine,” Song said. “I think that’s what made me birdie 11 and 12. I knew they were behind me and I knew I had to do something.” Song coasted through the final holes with a three-point lead, but a battle was going on with six fellow golfers battling for second place. One of them was Kenoyer, who began the day in a three-way tie for eighth place. “I’m very excited about the way I played today,” Kenoyer said. “I’m really happy with the way I finished. In conditions like this, an under-par round is huge. … It’s my best finish on tour so far.” Kenoyer said the conditions

may have helped her psychologically. “I think the most important thing is to stay positive,” Kenoyer said. “That’s really what I tried to do all day. I didn’t play perfect. I missed a couple of putts – you know, the water got in the way a couple of times. What can you do? But I kind of let those go a lot easier than normal. So, in that respect, it was almost easier.” Another contender for second place fell away on the final hole. Isabelle Boineau of Marseille, France, was feeling quite confident, so she decided to be aggressive on the 18th hole. Instead, her tee hot ended see SONG, pg. 35 


Golfer fought back after injury sidelined career By Dave Lawrence dlawrence@mechlocal.com Katy Harris just won’t give up. Harris, a South Bend, Ind., native who lives in Houston, had a promising collegiate golf career at Louisiana State University when a devastating wrist injury at the Southeastern Conference championship in 2001 sidelined her for years. But the injury could not keep her off a golf course forever, and now she is fighting to get – and keep – a spot on the LPGA tour. “I hit a ball in a plugged lie in a water hazard,” Harris said. “It loosened a joint in the back of my right hand. I was able to finish the season – it didn’t hurt right away, but the more golf I played, the more it hurt.” The following year, she had two surgeries on her hand, but the pain would not let up. “That was it for me for golf,”

Dave Lawrence/The Local

Harris said. While she gave up golf, she got on with her life. She and her husband, Chad, began a family. First came a son, Owen, now 6, and then a daughter, Emma, now 4. By the time Emma was 18 months, Harris thought it might

be a good idea to snatch some time for herself. She found her respite on the golf course. “I started to play nine holes just to get out of the house and get a little personal time,” Harris said. “My hand didn’t hurt.” Her renewed relationship with the game forced her to

make a decision about her old dream. “My game was in decent shape for nine years’ off,” Harris said. “It’s always been a dream of mine, since I was a little girl, to be a golfer and a mom. So it was now or never if I was going to give it a shot. I didn’t want to be

one of those who looked back at life and wondered what would have happened if I tried.” Instead of wondering, she tried – and earned an LPGA card for the 2012 season. That alone would seem a victory, but Harris is not ready to move on. She wants to get back on the LPGA tour and stay there.

“I’m lucky enough that my hand is healthy enough to be back and that I have the opportunity to do this, but just being out here is not my motivation. It’s not my goal,” Harris said. “I want to be one of the best players out there. That’s what drives me and that’s what I work hard for. … I’m not done.”

Her second shot ended up on the right side of the fairway, where the canopy of another oak partially blocked approach to the green. “I wanted to hit a driver down here to have a short shot and maybe have a chance to make a birdie to be 6-under and alone in second instead of tied for second,” Boineau said. “I was a little greedy. I should have just hit a three-wood and kept to my strategy.” The victory was an important one for Song, who wants to return to the LPGA tour. The top 10 finishers in the Symetra Tour will earn their LPGA card next year. Prior to the Eagle Classic, Song was 16th in the

rankings, but this victory – her second this year – should help her move up. “This means so much,” Song said. “I don’t want to play [on

the Symetra Tour] for too long. I just want to see all my friends out there, too, and play well and not come back.”

Redskins training center: A gift that keeps giving? By Dave Lawrence dlawrence@mechlocal.com The Washington Redskins are gone. After three weeks in Richmond, they have departed to attend to the business of the 2013 NFL season. Their campsite, the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center, remains. Local, state, Bon Secours and Washington Redskins officials promised that a controversial, multimillion-dollar deal to acquire and develop the site – which would only be used by the Redskins for a few weeks each year – would provide yearround benefit to the region. What will some of that benefit be in terms of research and education into sports injury prevention and treatment – and wellness overall? The Bon Secours Virginia Health System said the facility will house a full-service sports medicine and men’s health center and that the center will offer health and fitness education programs. Peter J. Bernard, chief executive officer for Bon Secours Virginia Health System, said the center is a good fit with Bon Secours’ long-term plan. “We’ve opened up, now, three sports medicine facilities and [were] looking for additional expansion opportunities,” Bernard said at the training center’s grand opening on Jul. 8. “It’s our way of giving back in terms of fitness and wellness.” Bernard said the training center will either house or serve as the base for rehabilitation, fitness and wellness programs such as its “movin’ mania” program designed to combat childhood obesity. Former Redskins quarterback Joe Theismann said a facility like the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center can have a tremendous

rehabilitation, for nutritional needs, that there is a place to go – somewhere someone has a source for information to be able to seek – then you’re going to get a lot of people to come. I

think that’s exactly what’s happening here at the Bon Secours facility.” Theismann said athletes will benefit first, but the benefits will soon spread.

“As far as the other elements go, they all follow in suit,” Theismann said. “What happens is once you start to see results from different things, more and more people will come, and that’s exactly what I think you’re going to find here. In the beginning you’re going to have the athletes, and then more and more people are going to find that treatment – more than just an hour – can

get you a lot further. “And really … when it comes to obesity and health in general – you look at the vitamins, you look at the way people exercise, you look at the length of time people are living now, how much longer they are [living] – we’re a society that is going to be more and more reliant on health [care]. And Bon Secours has created the initial stages of a facility that will be able to accommodate the people of the Richmond area I think in a very, very efficient way.” Like Theismann, whose career ended with a broken leg, newly signed Redskins linebacker Nick Barnett knows how devastating injuries can be. Barnett, a 10-year NFL veteran who began his career with the Green Bay Packers and played the last two years for the Buffalo Bills, has struggled with a series of injuries throughout his career. He had arthroscopic surgery and stem cell treatments to repair an injured knee during the offseason. He was impressed by what the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center had to offer. “A facility like this, if I had had one like this when I first got hurt, it would have been awesome,” Barnett said. “Stateof-the-art physical therapy and workout [rooms] – you’ve got everything you need. … When you have a centralized place like this, it can benefit you a lot.” Barnett said a centralized site on the cutting edge of treatment and outreach is vital, especially with the pace of research advances into the prevention and treatment of sports injuries. “Think about it – eleven years ago they started getting good at replacing ACLs and see REDSKINS, pg. 37

I look forward to seeing how far we can take it medically.” He said the outreach component of the center may be even more important. “The more you can educate yourself … the better you are at preventing injuries,” Barnett said. “There’s little things that people can do to help their ACL before tearing their ACL, stuff like that. Are you [overworking] certain muscles of your

Hanover County had a few wrestlers continue wrestling after their high school season ended. Gene Haynie of Atlee High made a good run at the Virginia Wrestling Association (VAWA) freestyle and Greco-Roman championships in May. Gene finished third in Greco-Roman and fifth in freestyle which qualified him to be a member of the Virginia national team. Qualifying for the national team allows the wrestlers to compete for Virginia at the Cadet Duals in Daytona Beach, Fla., and the USA Nationals in Fargo, N.D. Also qualifying for Team Virginia was Corbin Allen and J.D. Gregory, both from Hanover High School. Both Allen and Gregory were double champions in Greco-Roman and freestyle. Gene and JD went to Daytona Beach in June with Team VA, Gene wrestled up a weight class to fill a hole for the benefit of the team. He wrestled extremely well at the upper weight and went 2-0 at his weight class. JD went 6-1 in GR and 4-1 in FS. Allen, Gregory and Rebecca Forsyth of Patrick Henry High School made the trip to Fargo in July for the USA Nationals.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, if you feel like there haven’t been too many opportunities to socialize with friends, host your own gathering of friends and family. Start planning now. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, sometimes forgetting responsibilities and acting like a child for a day can be good for the spirit. Take a mental health day and don’t let worries get you down for a few hours.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, make travel plans before the summer passes you by. There has never been a better time to get out for a road trip or book a weekend jaunt to somewhere special. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, it can be difficult to upstage you, but someone else steps into the spotlight at work and it has you reeling for a little while. Be the bigger person and offer congrats. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, you might be ultra careful when choosing friends, but keep in mind those closest to you have been there through thick and thin. Remember that this week.

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, despite the many changes you have made, you still don’t feel completely satisfied. You can’t put your finger on what is off, but you will get to it eventually. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, you have heard the saying that you catch more flies with honey. Be prepared to lay the honey on especially thick this week. Have fun with it. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, it’s hard to smile when you are feeling upset. This is not the week to let your true feelings show, though. Get through your obligations first.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Carpricorn, if you have been thinking about getting active to shed a few pounds, then try something fun like playing a sport. Exercise doesn’t have to mean time in the gym. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Certain aspects of your life are a work in progress, Aquarius. Other things you have under control. This week, focus on the things that may be holding you back. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, while creative pursuits tickle your fancy this week, some more mundane tasks require your immediate attention.

THIS WEEK’S ANSWERS

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Now is a great time to explore new culinary horizons, Aries. You just may find a new type of cuisine that you never would have anticipated liking.
