School budget goals get good response By Jim Ridolphi news@mechlocal.com

SHERROD

In a process designed to involve the community in advance of its 2014-2015 formal budget presentation, Hanover County School Board

members held a pre-planning public hearing last week in Ashland. While the School Board has published budget goals and guidelines, a final presentation is not expected until January after state education fund contributions become available.

But the inclusive process drew praise from a group of speakers who voiced support of the proposed guidelines and goals for the upcoming budget season, including lowered class sizes and pay increases for teachers. Angela Downer, president of

Dana Schrad, executive director of the Virginia Sheriff ’s Association of Chiefs of Police, presented four Hanover County deputies with Lifesaving Awards for their heroic efforts during a fire incident in the county earlier this year. “These lifesaving awards are one of the most important ways that we can honor Virginia law enforcement officers for the outstanding service they provide us every day,” Shrad said. Around 3 a.m. on Feb. 21, all four of the honorees responded

to a fire in the eastern part of the county. Deputy Jason Bonifacio entered the burring house by breaking a sliding glass door and carried an unconscious 11year-old male out of a smokefilled room and handed him off to Deputy Thomas Hauck who carried the child to safety. Deputies Christopher Clark and Stephen Newsome also entered the home and searched for additional victims, suffering smoke inhalation in the process. Three other occupants see DEPUTIES, pg. 26

Fact: Tanks over 25 years old are probably leaking Fact: Many furnace problems are the result of leaking tanks Do the smart thing and call for a free, no obligation tank inspection. After all, your tank is nothing more than a buried steel container that will rust, leak, and get into your well or basement. We can access the Virginia Petroleum Storage Tank Fund, which pays for our costs associated with a leaking tank clean-up.

Johnson, who announced his retirement in January 2013 effective Dec. 31, 2013. “John Dwyer’s experience at Sunnyside and his knowledge of trends in senior living will be of tremendous benefit to Covenant Woods, especially as it completes its independent living expansion and plans for future services both on campus and in the community, ” Covenant Woods Board chairman O.

– Why pre-plan your funeral? – Peace of mind: pre-planning takes the burden of making important decisions off of your loved ones during a difficult time.

W. Canova Peterson, chairman of the Hanover County Board of Supervisors and representative for the Mechanicsville District, is looking for help from citizens interested getting involved in service to their community. “I have had many discussions with citizens who want to get involved, but are unaware of the many opportunities available,” Peterson said. “In order to help, I would like to let everyone know of the appointments that I will be making between now and July of 2014.” There are two types of appointments that Peterson will be making. The first are

at-large appointments made in his role as chairman of the Board of Supervisors. Citizens appointed to these positions can live anywhere in the county. Appointments in this category to be made before his term as chairman expires in January include:  Hanover Airport Advisory Committee, term — four years.  Community Services Board (two positions), term — three years. Other positions require that the appointee represent a specific magisterial district. Peterson will be filling Mechanicsville District positions in the following areas by July 2014:  School Board, term — four years.  Hanover County Council on Aging (two positions), term — one year.

 Cannery Advisory Committee, term — one year.  Roads Committee, term — one year.  Community Services Board, term — three years. “I am interested in having the most energetic and qualified people in all of these positions,” Peterson added. “As such, I invite all interested citizens, including current appointees, to contact me concerning their interest in serving in any of these positions.” Peterson noted that these and other appointments may be up for consideration in other magisterial districts and recommends that citizens in those districts also contact their Board of Supervisors representatives regarding their desires to serve.

Fall Fire Season underway in Commonwealth John Miller, director of resource protection at VDOF, said. “Whether it’s someone burning debris or trash, an unattended campfire or an intentional case of arson, wildfires have a greater chance of causing bodily harm or property damage in the fall and spring months because the conditions are right for fires to burn hotter and spread faster.” Each year, Virginia experiences more than 1,200 wildfires that burn more than 10,000 acres of land. VDOF employees annually protect hundreds of homes from the ravages of wildfires,

but each year there are always some homes that are destroyed by these wildfires. Miller said, “As more than 95 percent of wildfires that occur in Virginia are the result of human activity, taking even the simplest precautions with outdoor fires will significantly reduce the occurrence of wildfires and the threat to you and your neighbors.” To learn more about what you can do to reduce the risk of wildfires, visit dof.virginia. gov or www.firewisevirginia. org. The Virginia Department

of Forestry protects and develops healthy, sustainable forest resources for Virginians. Headquartered in Charlottesville, the agency has forestry staff members assigned to every county to provide service to citizens of the Commonwealth. VDOF is an equal opportunity provider. With nearly 16 million acres of forestland and more than 144,000 Virginians employed in forestry, forest products and related industries, Virginia forests provide more than $27.5 billion annually in benefits to the Commonwealth.

About Covenant Woods Covenant Woods is a notfor-profit continuing care retirement community in Hanover County. The community is undergoing an expansion, “The Lodge,” which will nearly double the physical size and indepen-

dent resident population, and ensure Covenant Woods’ ability to serve current and future residents. In December 2012, the organization successfully sold $101,495,000 of tax-exempt bonds issued by the Economic Development Authority of Hanover to finance The Lodge, 22 additional cottages and other

improvements to the campus. Its tradition of retirement living began in 1883 with The Richmond Home for Ladies. In 2001, Covenant Woods moved to its present location in Hanover County. For more information, call 804-569-8000 or visit www.covenantwoods.com.

OPINION | The Local Views From the news editor

One man’s trash is another man’s best friend One cold January morning, a tiny puppy, just a few weeks old, was found barely alive near a community swimming pool in far southwestern Virginia. His tiny body was filthy, covered in scabs and nearly hairless. He was so weak he could barely move. One day later, the seizures started as his exhausted organs began to shut down. A few weeks ago, that same dog, plump and covered in a shock of fluffy orange and black fur, soared over an extra tall baby gate at least four times his height in my kitchen, just to be naughty. He is a whirl of energy, growling like the Tasmanian Devil as he plays with our other dog, Starbuck, who also is a tiny terrier. He loves to snooze on my lap as my husband and I watch television or lie on the back of the couch at the window, watching the world go by. Harry, who was jokingly given that name as a nod to his former hairlessness, makes me smile every day. He didn’t cost me a dime – except a nominal adoption fee – and he’s perfectly adorable, despite not having a prestigious pedigree. What someone threw out like trash is my cherished friend and companion, who luckily bears no scars from the mistreatment he suffered – at least, none we can see. In Hanover County, as in communities across the country, tireless volunteers and dedicated employees work day and night to try to find loving homes for dogs just like Harry. It’s a labor of love for those who answer latenight calls about animals in distress, who clean up messes and try to round up supplies to take care of unwanted animals. The Hanover County Pound always needs support to keep going – from pet supplies and cash to volunteers to lend a helping hand. They also are in constant need of pet “parents” willing to take on a new member of the family and treat them right. My life has been enriched by my decision to take in Harry and Starbuck, who also was adopted from a rescue organization. Those two little stinkers have helped make my house a home. Learn more about animals available for adoption or ways you can help by calling the Hanover County Pound at 804-365-6485. The pound is located at 12471 Taylor Complex Lane in Ashland. 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. or 3:30 p.m. Saturday.

L-DHS student: proposed movie theater location dangerous There has been a lot of talk about a movie theater coming to Mechanicsville. At first I did not give it much thought, but then I learned of the location it was being planned and knew right off that’s a very bad idea. I heard on the news that there is a lot of crime at movie theaters around our area, so why would we put one right on top of a neighborhood? I can think of a number of better locations that would not impact as badly any neighborhood. I think our [Hanover County] Board of Supervisors needs to stop this plan and rethink what they are allowing. As a student of Lee-Davis High School I have a different perspective on this whole theater plan. I talked to some of my friends at school and we all agreed that the location so close to our school and all the traffic right in that area would make it even more dangerous. Plus the cost of going to the movies is just too high and we would rather spend our money on other things. We have Netflix, Red Box and other ways to see a movie. If anything, the theater would just end up becoming a hangout and being that close to a neighborhood is probably not a good thing. Have you ever tried walking down Brandy Creek Drive on a weekend or at rush hour or when school lets out? I have and it’s already too much traffic cutting through. Most of the time the cars are speeding. If the Board of Supervisors allows this theater, it’s only going to get much worse. I was told that a long time ago the land where the theater is being planned was once going to be a park for the Brandy Creek neighborhood, but that apparently fell through. I think that would be the best use for that property. Most people do not know this, but the proposed location of the theater is actually wetlands. These wetlands house many diverse animals and vegetation. Getting rid of this land would continue to hurt our environment. A better idea would be to have a nature trail or park. We need a place for families to go and enjoy nature. Have you ever walked along Brandy Branch creek itself? I have and it would be a shame to lose something as nice as that. Jake Johnson Mechanicsville

Resident: no vote on movie theater ensures quality of life Currently the two most hazardous (and frustrating) intersections in Hanover County are: 1) Bell Creek Road and Mechanicsville Turnpike and 2) Lee Davis Road and

Mechanicsville Turnpike. The congestion, traffic jams and accidents seem too frequent, especially during school events and holiday shopping season. On Oct. 23, the Hanover County Board of Supervisors will be voting on approval or not of a “Super Size” 12-screen movie theater to be located across from Lee-Davis High School (behind Bank of America), which will add about 2,000 cars every Friday night and 3,000 cars every Saturday and Sunday onto Mechanicsville Turnpike. The proposed theater plan does not have any direct entrance or exits through a Mechanicsville Turnpike stoplight and most traffic would have to go through Lee Davis Road or Brandy Creek Road. Either way, expect more traffic jams. If this theater is approved, we can expect home values of those located near the theater will most likely decrease, probably at least by $10,000 or more (my estimate) without compensation to our fellow neighbors by the movie theater company. In addition, an expected increase in some crime will occur should this nightly theater be approved. Is locating this theater across from Lee-Davis High School and near Stonewall Jackson Middle School the right location? And where will the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office, already down four budgeted positions, find the time and resources to cover the additional traffic jams and crime increase? Bottom line: Our Hanover County quality of life will be worse for all who normally drive these roads if this theater proposal is approved. The choice seems clear: A “Yes” vote will lead to 1) more traffic jams, more accidents and slow down emergency response times for the Sheriff ’s Office and Hanover County Fire/EMS; 2) lower home values for those located near the theater; and 3) bring an increase in crime to our area. A “No” vote will 1) ensure the two most hazardous intersections in Hanover County do not get worse; 2) ensure our neighbors’ home values do not decrease; 3) prevent a see LETTERS, pg. 8

get goals,� Downer said. “As the economy improves, we ask the School Board to examine all funding sources with the intention of restoring some of the cuts made over the past five years.� The School Board’s desire to raise teacher’s salaries drew her full endorsement. The organization will poll its members in November and present its final comments on the budget once those results are analyzed. Downer did highlight one specific need that ranks high on her membership’s priority list. “As the Hanover school division transitions to the Affordable Healthcare Act, the district needs to maintain high quality and affordable healthcare options for its employees,� she said. Gianna Clark, who serves on the Hanover Education Board and is a member of last year’s long-range planning group, spoke in support of the budget goals and long-range plan, a five-year vision resulting from community partnerships, school officials and the superintendent. “I would like to commend Dr. [Jamelle] Wilson and her staff for the development of this comprehensive five-year plan and for involving the community in getting it together,� Clark said. Clark said the budget goals adhere to those long-term goals. “The 2014-2015 goals align with our long-term vision for Hanover schools,� Clark said. “We need to make sure our long-range plans are used as a guide for budget decisions.� Catherine Ingrassia, chairman of Hanover County’s Gifted Advisory Committee, also supported the proposed 2014-2015 budget goals, and went a step further. She urged funding for gifted students be restored to its previous levels so the system can

serve each and every student in the county. “We strongly urge that funding for gifted resources be restored to its previous levels, levels that demonstrated Hanover’s commitment to educate fully each and every student to his or her full ability. Previous budget cuts coupled with increased demands on K-12 gifted resource teachers continues to erode the quality of gifted instruction,� Ingrassia said. She said those resources not only serve the more than 2,100 students in the county who are enrolled, but also benefit the county’s overall student population. “Gifted students are not the only ones who benefit from gifted resources,� Ingrassia said. Patty Davis, a parent, addressed the School Board and endorsed the proposed budget goals, with an emphasis on the proposed teacher salary increases. She urged School Board members to compensate teachers in the county who have not enjoyed raises in several years. “Those who have stayed the course with us through this downturn need to be rewarded for that loyalty,� Davis said. “We need to show the teachers that they are valued. They are what make our school system great.� She also urged continued funding of gifted children programs in the county. She expressed support for the Library Reading Program and its importance to county students. “We need to look additional funding there,� Davis said. Randy Sherrod of Friends of Hanover Schools requested the restoration of positions eliminated in recent budgets.

“Attrition if a big concern in our group,� Sherrod said. “These are experienced teachers with vast amounts of knowledge who are walking out the door. Until we restore staff levels, we risk not being the same school system we were.� He noted a continued decrease in school budgets since 2008. “This is while expenses have increased,� he said. He said parents must pick up the slack when it comes to supplies and noted the amount of private funds being spent by teachers to buy supplies.

Sherrod said parents through PTA organizations are filling gaps when funds are exhausted. He also pointed to outdated textbooks in the system and a lack of technological resources. “Many teachers are without desktop or laptop computers. They are forced to use their own computers,� Sherrod said. “We are concerned that Hanover schools are not keeping up with surrounding school districts in providing teachers the tools they need to do the job,� Sherrod said.

To our Hanover County Board of Supervisors, I ask you each to respect and listen to the hundreds and hundreds of fellow Hanover County citizens who have contacted you to vote “No” as the real “experts” of what we know is best for our lives and families, and for Mechanicsville and Hanover County, and trust their collective wisdom and common sense, and vote “No” to this movie theater proposal on Oct. 23.

Shutdown and who isn’t working I am writing concerning the recent shutdown in “our government.” I think that the “non-essential personnel has been mistakenly given to some of our government workers out there. Those who work at the national parks have been labeled non-essential, but the way I see it, they collect money from people entering ours parks all over the country, therefore paying their salary and others. We have others who were furloughed because they were deemed non-essential. Now, my question is this: Our President, representatives in both the House and Senate are the ones “not doing their jobs.” All they do is fight amongst themselves, getting absolutely nothing done, and yet they still get paid. They can vote themselves pay raises, do not have to live on social security like the rest of us, and yet they still collect their salaries. What is wrong with this picture? If any of us did our work the way they did we would be FIRED! I don’t know when we the people lost our right to have

our representatives do what we wanted, but it is ruining this country. And Obama is forcing this ObamaCare down our throats and is this going to make things better. No way! I don’t know what color the sky is in their world but it sure isn’t the same as the rest of ours. I have been in my job for 5½ years and in that time I have gotten a 2.25 percent raise once! New hires make exactly .30 less an hour than I do because they say they have no money. The government has no money but they keep paying the people that are not doing their jobs and let them give themselves raises. They said that we would feel the shutdown but so far the only ones feeling it are the hardworking people, not the elected officials. They should not be collecting a paycheck! They should have to live on social security like the rest of us when they retire. After all, they are the ones who screwed it all up in the first place, taking money away from it to pay others’ things. The foreign countries own more of this country now than we do. Maybe when they own it all things will get better.

Influence of Internet and TV It appears Robert Mackay of Mechanicsville vehemently opposes the plans for a new movie theater on U.S. 360. Mackay believes movies dumb-down our kids and half the grown-ups and likens movies as peddling more trash ideas and pure stupidity.

thank you all for your progress in making sure we are investing in the instructional needs of our students,” Wilson said. The School Board also received more information on how attrition is affecting the current teacher pool. Figures presented reflected a relatively steady rate of teachers leaving Hanover schools for other divisions. Most departing teachers listed “closer to home” or “personal” as the reason for changing localities. Some professional education groups in the county have asserted that Hanover teachers are leaving the system due to salary and workload issues. School division attorney Yvonne Gibney asked the School Board to approve a measure that would allow the county to opt out of the Virginia Retirement System to cover short-term and long-term disability. Gibney said opting out of

���� ������ ������� � ����������������� ����� � ������������

the program allows the county to better shop for alternative programs in the private sector and is more cost-effective than the VRS system. David Myers, assistant superintendent of Business and Operations, said a comparative study was conducted and staff concluded the private sector option works best for the county. He said the private policies do not provide long-term disability options. Once a locality opts out of the program, the move is irrevocable and the county could not re-enter the VRS system at a later date.

School Board member Glenn Millican of the Mechanicsville District said he didn’t have enough information to make such an important decision, and noted the move is one that cannot be reversed at a later date. Wilson said staff had conducted extensive studies regarding the proposal and their conclusion appears to best serve school officials. Gibney said the School Board decision is due Nov. 1, so there was no regularly scheduled additional meeting dates available to defer the decision. “I don’t like the timing,” Millican said. If the School Board took no action, its inclusion in the VRS system would be automatic and carries the irrevocable label. Members approved the request for opt out, with Millican casting the only dissenting vote. The Hanover County Board of Supervisors recently adopted an identical policy.

same route. I can tell you that my morning commute has become a nightmare. Traffic is horrendous. And if there is a wreck (like there was on Tuesday) and one of the two lanes are blocked, you are at a standstill. Plus, there were no cops in sight to direct traffic or clear the cars off the road. I was late for work and had to take off that time. My question is why would the [Hanover County] Board of Supervisors approve for all the building that has gone on over the past 10 years along this section of 301 (Atlee Road on past Parham)? Did they not realize the traffic it would generate? I guess not, since they do not live in this area or commute along this route. And, to top it all off, they are constructing the Hanover Emergency Center that is due to open in the spring of 2014. So, in addition to the heavy traffic presently traveling in this area, we are going to have to contend with emergency vehicles. The main reason my husband and I moved to Hanover County some 20 years ago was that it was still rural. I have seen first-hand how too much growth can lower the quality of living for its residents (my mother and siblings live in Chesterfield County). That is why we voted for Chip Markow when he ran for the board — we loved his slogan: “Stop Chesterfielding Hanover.� Unfortunately, he was only one member going up against six others. I just hate to see Hanover going the same way as Chesterfield, but it looks like that is the way it is heading. So much for progress. Deborah Shelly Mechanicsville

The school is honored to be partnering with the symphony in this unique learning experience for the students. This program is called Symphony@School (S@S). It is an intensive, in-school residency program offered by The Richmond Symphony String Quintet to middle and high school orchestra programs.

30, 2013, reports: “I think people ought to be ready for it,” Donald N. Blake said of the planned theater in Mechanicsville. Blake is a local developer who nearly managed to have the theater built in Mechanicsville about a quarter-century ago. Many citizens are beginning to call Hanover a mini-version of Washington, D.C. During his recent 21-hour speech, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz compared vote trading to professional wrestling: “It’s a little bit like the World Wrestling Federation. It’s wrestling matches where . . . the outcome is prerigged, the outcome is predetermined. They know who’s going to win and it’s all for show.” This kind of behavior should not be tolerated in Hanover County. Dale Taylor Beaverdam

Resident: Citizens need to take over Looks like the Hanover County Planning Commission and the Hanover County Board of Supervisors are battling Hanover Citizens again. I don’t know for sure but I bet the citizens have 0 wins in these battles. We need to wake up and take over. You can’t win the battle trying to dictate what a landowner should be doing with their property. They bought the property as an investment before most were in Hanover and should be entitled to do what they want with it. I made a suggestion about 10 or so years ago and no one was interested so I will make it again. If you want to have a say about where subdivisions, movie theaters or other things you don’t like are built, then buy up the property. Here’s how we do it: Everyone in Hanover concerned about

Resident notes theater negatives In a democratic republic the citizen votes for the best qualified candidate to represent their wishes. The welfare of the whole trumps the wishes of the few. In the current debate over the proposed movie theater, 100 citizens of Hanover County showed their disapproval by

voting with their feet. We the citizens of Hanover County packed the Board of Supervisors’ meeting and showed that a movie theater is not a top priority for our community. It appears to come down to the fact that Hanover County needs more tax revenue. In order to accomplish this, we subject our families and community to the following:  Increased traffic, with no plan to accommodate it, a large movie complex that sits alongside our homes. If this passes, long-time residents of the surrounding community will have a very difficult time trying to sell their homes. No one really wants to live beside or behind a movie theater.  Increased crime and people coming into our community that don’t share our Hanover values. Sixty part-time low-paying jobs that are really only meant for high school and college students. So we see that the wants of the few (business) trump the wants of the many (taxpaying citizens). Tax dollars rule the day and the desires of the very citizens that voted for their representative are ignored. My Board of Supervisors member, Elton Wade, voted no to this and he should be congratulated! It is difficult to understand why this particular piece of property is being pushed for development. There appears to be plenty of other property on U.S. 360 that is not in someone’s back yard. The next Board of Supervisors; meeting is Oct. 23, 2013. Please show up for the meeting and show your elected representative that we the people of Hanover don’t want and don’t need a useless form of entertainment that adds no value to the community that we live in.

how the developing in Hanover is handled would donate $10 per week. At the end of a year’s time with 2,000 people contributing, there would be enough money ($1,040,000) to start buying up properties. We buy the properties in large tracts and sell them in 25-acre tracts and specify that they can never be subdivided. Put the money back into the pot and do it again and again. You will not lose your money and at some point you should be able to take your money back with interest. Don’t expect to have any luck changing the minds of people who have more friends in high places than they do in low places. All governments would rather have taxpayers divided. United we stand, Divided we lose. More often than not we hear the government organizations say “We take care of our own.” Can you imagine that we (taxpayers) pay for all their support and they become a private club? It’s time for the taxpayers to say “We are taking care of our own first.” Do I care if there is a government shutdown? Heck no. As far as I’m concerned, they’ve been down for the last 24 years. A shutdown won’t affect me and you as we will still be working and paying taxes so the government employees can still be paid while they are off. Ted Mentz Old Church

reopened convenience store and deli. The West Store abruptly closed its doors in the spring when its former operators, Old Church Enterprises, hit financial hard times. The company later filed for Chapter 7 liquidation in federal bankruptcy court. As soon as signs went up announcing the store’s closure, Hughes said her phone started ringing. She and the consortium of cousins who own the store their grandfather founded quickly began vetting the hopeful candidates who wanted to get the West Store back in business. “We didn’t want some corporation to send a manager in here,” Hughes said. “We wanted someone to be here.” After multiple interviews with hopefuls, Hughes said Corbin Haynie and Brenainn Sprouse rose to the top of the pack. The family liked them,

she said, and appreciated that they had the capital to get a business off the ground. After several months of cleaning, remodeling and planning, Haynie and Sprouse, both area natives and longtime friends, opened West Store’s doors the first week of October. “These two take pride in running it,” Hughes said. “They understand.” Haynie said he grew up coming to the West Store. “This is a country store. People want to hang out here,” Haynie said. “Back in the day, there would always be about 10 people sitting around here.” That’s what the two said they hope to accomplish again. They’re selling barbecue from the same popular recipe customers have enjoyed for years, and plan to use Haynie’s background in restaurants to expand the store’s offerings to include plenty of additional fresh, homemade dishes. “He’s getting deviled crabs in tomorrow,” Hughes told

Breakfast and lunch crowds continue to grow, and, alongside the chips and sodas found in regular convenience stores, West Store offers pickled eggs and a selection of fresh produce. They’ve also added propane filling. Hughes said she was hopeful that the store will continue to take hold and regain business that was lost in recent years and through the closure. “We want people to start coming back like they used to. It’s more open and friendly,” Hughes said. Old customers are already returning, she said, noting that one man had come in within the past hour and bought a whole pound of barbecue. “Everyone’s just so happy that it’s back.”

All four deputies risked their lives to save the lives of the occupants, resulting in a trip to the hospital for the quartet following the incident. “If not for their actions, the 11-year-old child might not have survived,” Schrad said. “The lifesaving award recognizes an officer’s actions that put him or her in harm’s way in an attempt to save the life of another individual,” Schrad said. Shrad, a Hanover resident, said Hanover County citizens are lucky to have such a responsive and efficient force and said these deputies went above and beyond the call of duty in their efforts. Col. David R. Hines, sheriff, applauded the efforts of deputies Jason Bonifacio, Christopher Clark, Thomas Hauck and Stephen Newsome.

In other matters, assistant county administrator Frank Harksen presented a Community Development Annual Report, and the supervisors approved a plan that would allow the county to opt out of a Virginia Retirement System plan for short- and long-term disability. After studying options, staff recommended obtaining the required coverage in the private sector, where initial studies indicated cost savings for the county. The board unanimously approved the opt-out option which is non-revocable. The policy will apply to both school and county employees. County administrator Rhu Harris said the opt-out measure allows the county more options when it comes to selecting the coverage and could result in savings.

The amount of relief has declined due to an increase in vehicles in the county and enhanced values of those automobiles. The Board of Supervisors approved Harris’ request to establish the new 57 percent relief rate that applies to the first $20,000 of all vehicles worth more than $1,000 in the county. Vehicles under that amount are not charged personal property tax in Hanover.

“Overall, I’d have to say FY[Fiscal Year] [20]13 was a good year. We had positive trends in almost every indicator. Unemployment came down slightly and there was steady job growth,” Gaskins said as he outlined his department’s strategy to maintain the development and progress enjoyed in the recent year. He said increasing jobs in targeted industries will assist the county in reaching a one-to-one job ratio for every Hanoverian. “We’re not quite there yet. We’re more at the 80 percent mark,” Gaskins said. The county is targeting high wage positions in the health care, supply chain, advanced manufacturing and destination retail industries. Logistics and healthcare are enjoying the greatest increases in employment in the last year. Another strategy of Gaskin’s department is to increase new capital investment to Hanover

an adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen musical “The Ugly Duckling.” The musical is set in the countryside and features a cast full of barnyard characters to include Ugly, a swanling who as an egg mistakeningly falls into the nest of a mother duck, Ida. Ida accepts Ugly, who is rejected by everyone else in the

barnyard, in what is described as a “great lesson about tolerance.” Tickets, which are $5, may be purchased in advance, starting on Monday, Nov. 4, at the school. For more information, contact Jennifer Hicks at 804723-2260.

County. The director said economic development is more than just creating new jobs. He also said that attracting new capital investment to the area also is a paramount concern. Businesses that build facilities, buy tools and staff facilities all enhance the county’s economic development picture. Increasing available commercial property is one of the department’s clearly defined goals, and Gaskins said that lack of availability is hindering the county in attracting more industry. Gaskins recommended making available more siteready tracts available to potential investors in Hanover. “We want to be ready for that moment,” Gaskins said. “That requires accessing more pad ready sites for new business investment.” “Any effective economic development strategy must include the aggressive development of available pad ready sites and buildings in Hanover. We

don’t ask for special treatment. We ask for a chance to compete,” Gaskins said. Increasing the amount of pad ready sites is a top priority for Gaskins and he and his staff are developing strategies to increase that supply of appropriate sites for development. He said there about 300 acres of pad ready sites on 18 sites throughout the county. Gaskins said the county often loses out to neighboring localities when real estate options are limited. Targeting specific industries will enhance the county’s effort toward increasing the average wage for Hanover workers. That progression also could increase in county job opportunities, according to Gaskins. “We achieve higher wage jobs by targeting industries,” Gaskins said. The county grows lower wage jobs, according to U.S. Census Bureau figures. He also cited pay discrepancies in Hanover pay versus the see ECONOMIC, pg. 34

Molin kick gives Atlee rare win over Varina By Eric Kolenich Richmond Times-Dispatch Preparing to kick the gamewinner, Molin thought about college. He wants to kick at the next level. As a senior, he’s building his resume, hoping a college will take interest. “This is something I definitely needed,” Molin said. Last week against Hanover High School, Atlee High School (5-1) had two kicks blocked. But this one went cleanly into the air. Atlee’s defense held down Varina High School’s vaunted rushing attack. The Blue Devils played without starting running back Herb Anderson, who suffered a concussion the week before. In his absence, Leander Cutler ran seven times for 73 yards, with 60 of them coming on one carry. Shawn Tyler rushed 14 times for 41 yards. “We shut the run game down,” Eberle said. “This was the best performance by our defensive line all year.” Eberle, a two-way lineman committed to Florida State University, had three sacks and forced a fumble. The Raiders took a 21-6 lead early in the third quarter. Then Varina lost its starting quarterback when Tim Minor went down with an injured left ankle. He stood with the help of crutches at the end of the game. His replacement, junior

Hawks defeat Henrico in stingy defensive effort By Jim Ridolphi For The Mechanicsville Local A steady dose of drizzle couldn’t dampen the enthusiasm of Hanover High School fans who packed the stands to celebrate the school’s 11th Homecoming. And the team did its part to keep the celebration positive by recording a 15-0 shutout of visiting Henrico High School in a game that featured plenty of offense, but very little scoring. “I thought the kids played well considering the conditions. We held on to the ball on offense, and played lights out defense when we needed to,” said Hawks’ head coach Derek Stoudt. “Any time you pitch a shutout you’re playing good football.” The victory evened Hanover’s record at 3-3 and kept them alive in the Virginia High School League Division 4A playoff race. The Hawks’ opening drive ended deep in Henrico territory when the Warriors took over on downs, the first of several trips to the red zone that did not end well for the Hawks. The Warriors’ good fortune quickly soured when Hanover picked an Andre Taylor pass on the next play and set up a first down in Henrico territory. The Hawks drew first blood when running back Brooks Coombs broke through the Warrior defensive line and shredded the secondary on a

the half ended with the Hawks holding a 7-0 lead. The second half featured more stellar defense, and more trips to the red zone for an offense that had no trouble moving the ball. “We moved the ball well tonight in the middle of the field, but we couldn’t punch it in once we got down close,” Stoudt said.

Stoudt was encouraged by the defense, but also credited the offensive line with a solid effort. “The offensive line got it going when it mattered and we had different people started making some plays for us,” Stoudt said. On the final play of the third quarter, Korbin Bordonie trapped Taylor in the end zone

first period. But, the ensuing possession didn’t produce promising results for the Warriors, either. As the Henrico quarterback attempted a desperation check down pass late in the first half, Hawk linebacker Brennan Gary picked the errand pass and raced to the three-yard line. Again, the Hawks couldn’t convert on the turnover and

for a safety. The play not only resulted in a two-point swing in the score, but the ensuing kickoff also set the Hawks up in Warrior territory: but again, no points. “We need to play assignment football when we get down there, just like we do in the middle of the field,” Stoudt said. Josh Harris gathered in a deflected Bordonie pass on the Warrior 3-yard line to set up what would be the Hawks’ final score of the night. Running back Jalen Elliot carried the final three yards and the Hawks secured the 150 win in. Coombs ended the evening with 103 yards on the ground, and Harris had four catches. The Hawk defense held the Warriors to 60 yards of total offense. The team goes on the road this week for a matchup with Armstrong. The Hawks’ left the post homecoming drizzle with a glimmer of hope for postseason play. “As long as we keep improving from here, we’re in a good spot,” Stoudt said. “Anything can still happen for us, and we’re still in it.” Henrico Hanover

Kidd helps himself to birthday win over Jaguars By Jacob Downer For The Mechanicsville Local Have yourself a happy 18th birthday, Donald Kidd. The Lee-Davis High School senior rushed for two touchdowns and 40 yards on five carries, in addition to recording three sacks on the defensive side of the ball, in leading his Confederates to a 38-6 Homecoming victory over visiting Glen Allen High School. “It feels great to have a performance like this on my birthday and Homecoming, but I really have to give credit to my offensive line, to all those big guys up front blocking for me,” Kidd said after the win. “They were opening up huge holes for our guys all night and all our success on offense really starts with them.” Senior Austin Rice also had a huge night for the Confederates, racking up 151 total yards to go along with two touchdowns. The victory helped to keep Lee-Davis’ playoff hopes alive, as they move to 3-3 on the season. Lee-Davis set the tone for Friday’s game with their very first drive, receiving the opening kickoff and following it up with a 12-play, 80-yard scoring drive. The multi-threat quarterback and receiver Rice found junior Dawayne Winston wide open on a fade route to the corner of the end zone for a 15yard touchdown pass just four minutes into the game, giving the home team a 7-0 lead that it would not relinquish. After forcing a Jaguars’ three-and-out on their first possession, the Confederate offense quickly went back to work. Much like on Lee-Davis’s first drive, Glen Allen had no answer for the potent Confederate attack. The offense picked up four first downs on

the Confederates 16-yard line. Four plays later, senior quarterback Michael Beyer dove into the end zone from 1-yard out to cut the deficit to 31-6. Kidd scored his second touchdown of the game on the ensuing drive. Following a failed onside kick attempt by the Jaguars, Lee-Davis went on an 8-play, 52-yard drive that Kidd finished off with a 6-yard touchdown run. A successful extra point attempt finished the Confederates’ 38-point campaign. Kidd said that the win was evidence of the fact that LeeDavis is finally reaching midseason form. “You know, we’ve played a really tough schedule up to this point, but it finally feels like we’re reaching mid-season form,” Kidd said. “Our defense is on a roll, our offense is on a roll and we all expect great Dave Lawrence/The Local things to continue to happen Lee-Davis running back Christian Chenault (center) takes a handoff from Brandon Sulser (11) against Glen Allen Friday night. for us.” Glen Allen coach Francel Smith was obviously disappointed with his team’s performance, but felt that he had some positive things to take The five inductees, selected “We talk about tradition scheduled for Friday, January By Dave Lawrence away from the contest. dlawrence@mechlocal.com from more than 100 nominees, and pride,” said Hall of Fame 17 at Lee-Davis.

Patriots get loose for volleyball win over Tigers By Dave Lawrence dlawrence@mechlocal.com At times, the play by Patrick Henry High School’s boys’ volleyball team looked sloppy. Enough of the time, however, it looked dominating as the Patriots defeated visiting J.R. Tucker High School 3-1 Thursday night. The Patriots (11-6) won the first two sets 25-17 and 25-16 before falling in the third set 12-25. Despite the momentum they yielded to the Tigers, they rallied for a 25-20 victory in the fourth set to claim the match. “We need to cut back on our errors,” said coach Michael Townsend. “Hitting errors, service errors, not moving our feet in service – just the basics.” Service errors especially plagued the Patriots throughout the night, often stifling Patrick Henry runs before they could get started. But once they got going, there was little the Tigers (4-11) to stop them. “Patrick Henry has a great squad,” said J.R. Tucker coach Brian Hoy. “They really don’t have any weaknesses. They’ve got a lot of strength, a lot of size, and a lot of just killed technical players as well. When they get in a rhythm, when they get rolling, they are tough to stop.”

In the first game, for example, the Patriots and Tigers traded scores, with Patrick Henry unable to get more than a twopoint lead on Tucker for the first half of the match. After the Tigers closed to within a point, 14-13, however, the Patriots when on a six-point run to take a commanding 19-13 lead and sailed through the rest of the set. In the second set, Patrick Henry cruised to an early and dominating lead. In the third set, Tucker did most of the running, with the Patriots mostly playing catch-up. “I think they relaxed a little too much,” Townsend said of

the third set. “They were a little overconfident, and we didn’t do our job and Tucker did their’s.” In the fourth and deciding set, Tucker took an early lead, but after a timeout, a rejuvenated Patrick Henry fought back for the win.

“I told them basically they needed to move their feet,” Townsend said. “They needed to wake up and at least get the job done and stop just [going] through the motions.” Hoy said the timeout was effective.

“You call a timeout to try to swing the momentum of the game,” Hoy said. “Coach Townsend got into them a little bit and was able to motivate them. They came out strong. ... They got us back on our heels.” Lucas Pienkowski led Patrick

Henry with two aces, 13 kills and seven digs. Sam Boyd had six kills, 40 assists and five digs; and Austin Pace had three aces and 12 kills. J.R. Tucker was led by Josh Warner with five kills, three blocks and four digs.

Randolph-Macon ekes out soccer win over EMU By Dave Lawrence dlawrence@mechlocal.com

Randolph-Macon’s Jen LaBarge (1) wins a battle for a ball in the Yellow Jackets’ 1-0 Old Dominion Athletic Conference victory over visiting Eastern Mennonite Wednesday.

The Mechanicsville Local

October 16, 2013

Randolph-Macon College’s soccer pitch turned into something of a mud pit when the Yellow Jackets’ women’s soccer team hosted Eastern Mennonite University Wednesday afternoon, but Randolph-Macon found enough footing to make sophomore Samantha King’s lone goal stand up for a 1-0 Old Dominion Athletic Conference

victory. King kicked an unassisted goal in the 30th minute of the match, and the Yellow Jacket defense, led by goalkeeper Elizabeth Blanco, with seven saves, managed to scatter 17 Royals’ shots to earn the shutout. Randolph-Macon’s ability to control the field was pretty amazing given the near-constant rain and mud they encountered. “I’m glad we were able to get

[the game] in,” said RandolphMacon coach Jim Woods. “We knew it was going to be a sloppy game, but we’ve got to get the games in.” Eastern Mennonite head coach Sue Kolb said conditions forced the Royals (8-4, 3-3 ODAC) out of their usual game – rather than control the ball, they had to attack the Yellow Jackets directly. “We don’t like to play direct,” Kolb said. “But the conditions

forced us to play that way today … straight, over-the-top balls behind their defense.” The Yellow Jackets (5-7, 34) had several opportunities to score in the second half, but could not extend their lead. Good luck, however, kept them ahead in the 83rd minute with Eastern Mennonite’s Nora Osei got a breakaway opportunity for a one-on-one against Blanco, but her kick sailed just a bit to the right of the net.

Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, left, recently presented Col. David R. Hines, sheriff, and the Hanover County Sheriff’s Office with a check for more than $31,000 in support of local mental health initiatives in Hanover County. These grant funds will be used to provide additional training to members of the Sheriff’s Office and other first responders (Crisis Intervention Teams) on how to better respond to those who are in need of emergency mental health intervention and services. Also shown are Capt. David Vermeer, Hines, Maj. Allen Davidson, and Scott Ward and Tom White, both representing Hanover Mental Health.

said. The attorney general stressed that this money was coming from criminals, not the taxpayers. In 2012, Cuccinelli’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit was the lead investigator in the second largest Medicaid fraud settlement in U.S. history. The $1.5 billion Abbott Laboratories fraud case resulted from the company’s illegal marketing of its drug Depakote for uses not approved safe and effective by the Food and Drug Administration. On top of the restitution to the state’s Medicaid program, the office earned $115 million in asset forfeiture funds as lead investigator in the case. The attorney general said he wanted to share $105 million of those funds with state and local law enforcement. This $4.2 million is the first part of that commitment. Information submitted by Lt. Chris R. Whitley, HCSO.

CIT training:  Increases public safety through better identification of, intervention with, and access to services for individuals with mental illness.  Reduces injuries to law enforcement when dealing with these citizens and helps them de-escalate potentially volatile situations.  Teaches law enforcement where they can refer people for mental health services in lieu of incarceration, when appropriate. “I learned how important this training was for law enforcement and for those with mental illnesses when I served as a court-appointed attorney in Virginia’s involuntary civil commitment process. I worked firsthand with these types of folks and their families. Most need help, not jail time,” Cuccinelli

Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli presented Col. David R. Hines, sheriff, and the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office with a check for $31,290 last week during a news conference in Richmond with local sheriffs and police chiefs from around the commonwealth. Checks totaling $4.2 million were awarded for training to help law enforcement better respond to crisis situations involving individuals with mental illnesses. Law enforcement, other first responders and corrections personnel routinely interact with people with mental illnesses. Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) training provides tools to safely deal with those with mental illnesses and also helps those who are ill get proper care by helping first responders understand the circumstances surrounding mentally ill offenders.
