Dorothy Graves was minding her own business, folding clothes in a laundromat on Nine Mile Road, when her arm just stopped working. “My arm — I couldn’t move it, then I fell in the floor,� Graves said. Confused, she waved away concerned bystanders, refusing their offers of water. She didn’t know it, but Graves was having a massive stroke. Luckily for Graves, everyone around her took quick action. The staff of the laundromat, where she’s been doing her laundry for 24 years, could tell something was wrong when she walked in. When Graves hit the floor, she immediately called for an ambulance. The ambulance whisked Graves to Memorial Regional Medical Center, where emergency room personnel had a

Fuel Assistance Program application deadline nears The Hanover County Department of Social Services is accepting applications for the Fuel Assistance Program. The application deadline is Saturday, Nov 9. Fuel Assistance is a temporary program that helps eligible households with the costs of heating their homes. The amount that is received will not necessarily cover all of the winter heating costs but will be a supplement.

Benefits are based on the availability of funds and the number of applications received within the state. In order to be eligible for fuel or utility assistance, your household’s income must be less than the maximum allowed for the number of people in the home, and you must be responsible for paying the heating bill. Applications will be pro-

Once the technology-layered phone conversation with her mother was through, though, Mayo was on board. Mayo offered high praise for the stroke staff of Memorial Regional Medical Center, who, she said, kept her in the loop on each step of the diagnosis and treatment. “The stroke staff just educated us on everything that was

going on,” Mayo said. She also offered high praise for the Henrico EMS team who delivered Graves to Memorial. They didn’t leave the hospital until the patient was out of the woods, Mayo said. “They stayed there with us — they stayed there the whole time,” Mayo said. As for Graves, she said she’s still feeling some lingering effects of the incident. However, her recovery is noteworthy because of the severity of her stroke, her niece and members of MRMC’s stroke team said. “I’m fine, I just can’t always get my words out,” Mayo said. She also experiences some differences in sensation on her right side, which is the side of her body that was temporarily paralyzed by the stroke. “It was really, really bad,” Mayo said. “They told us we’re very lucky she lived.” Upon hearing that, Graves smiled. “They told me I was a fighter,” she said.

OPINION | The Local Views

LETTERS

From the editor

What do you think as theater debate rages on? The pros and cons about the proposed construction of a movie theater off U.S. 360 in Mechanicsville continue to be weighed on this page with your opinions in our letters to the editor forum. And we certainly welcome and encourage your input. Community involvement is integral to any progress — whatever the issue may be. As was stated here a few weeks ago, here is a Mechanicsville resident who definitely supports business but also understands the concerns of residents in the neighborhood where the 12-screen cinema is being considered. Now, this citizen has not heard that the vote is already in place and the location is “set in stone.” The Hanover County Board of Supervisors apparently is pursuing more information from their planning department staff and the developers behind the project. That being said, let’s not put the cart before the horse. A vote will be taken. I do expect you’ll get more opportunities to voice your opinions. I don’t think any member of the Board of Supervisors is going to avoid hearing your voice. Like many of our letter-writers, as well as those who have sent emails and called us, we live near the area in question. Am I convinced it will become a den of crime? No, but I do believe additional patrols will be needed simply because traffic will increase. The Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office has not been shy or quiet about the need for additional personnel. And this writer will never understand how anyone could claim we have too many law enforcement officers. I like knowing there are deputies nearby if needed. As for the residents who would directly be impacted, I understand your plight and I applaud your efforts to speak out and stand up for your neighborhood. This organized effort has, no doubt, gotten the attention of our supervisors. Let’s give them a little credit on this one. Until a vote is taken, don’t assume anything. Those who have something to say — one way or the other — should remain vigilant and dedicated to their cause. We’ll have an answer soon enough. Melody Kinser

Reader: President not Muslim or socialist I read the letters to the editor of The Local and and all I can do is shake my head and sigh — so much invective, irrationality and hyperbole. Our President is neither Muslim (though why this would be bad anyway is beyond me) nor socialist (ditto). He does not want to destroy the country. Fellow citizens, such name-calling should have ended in grade school. Please, editor, can you at least set a reasonable word limit to reduce the spew? Judy M. Thomas. Mechanicsville

TEA Party asked about defunding ACA OK, TEA Party, just what is it about the Affordable Care Act that you want to defund? The ACA prohibits insurers from charging more or denying coverage because of pre-existing conditions. You want to defund that? No, probably not. I think everyone agrees that’s a good idea. The ACA prohibits insurers from recession practices – that’s where the insurer lets you pay premiums for years and years . . . and then when you make a claim they drop your coverage because you made a mistake or overlooked something on your application for insurance. No, that’s probably a good idea too. The ACA caps the amount of money people could pay

in one year for individuals and/or families and stops insurers from having lifetime limits on coverage for essential health benefits. Is this what you want to defund? I certainly don’t know why. The ACA allows young people to stay on their parent’s insurance plans until age 26 – actually this was mandated in Virginia prior to the passage of ACA and I didn’t hear anyone complaining about it then so this probably isn’t what you want defunded. The ACA mandates that all health plans cover at least 10 essential benefits. That seems reasonable. While no affordable health plan can cover absolutely everything – especially on the individual market – there have been many plans sold where’s it’s difficult to find anything that they do cover. Yes, perhaps let the buyer beware — but this seems a reasonable performance standard and a basis on which individuals can decide what type of coverage they need. Do you want to defund the ACA because none of the plans on the exchange will be affordable and will have an adverse effect on plans outside of the exchange? A recent issue of the Insurance Journal stated “Premium Increases Under ObamaCare Not as High as Expected” and additionally noted, “Our analysis found no widespread trend toward sharply higher prices in the individual market” and this certainly seems to be the case on exchange plans available to Virginians. Oh, yes, we need to defund the ACA because it will kill jobs. Well, Forbes Magazine – certainly not a liberal publication – cites a number of studies that say exactly the opposite. In fact, they cite that even in Massachusetts, whose health reform law passed in 2006 and is broadly similar to the federal law they could find “no evidence whatever that health care reform, and mandated coverage, killed jobs.” So let’s talk about the mandated coverage. That’s why you want to defund the ACA right? Well, gosh darn see LETTERS, pg. 8

– and this is my favorite part – this is a fundamental recommendation of the Republican Party, the Heritage Foundation, Romney Health Care Reform in Massachusetts and your friend and mine, Newt Gingrich (making it all the more hypocritical when people say that the ACA was created without Republican input). In fact, if you ask Democrats what they want, the majority will say that they want a single payer system (Congressman Bobby Scott). The Heritage Foundation rightfully said that you can’t eliminate pre-existing coverage without mandating coverage for all. So, OK, let’s eliminate mandated coverage and go with a single payer system then we can keep the pre-existing coverage prohibition. Is that what you want? No, no, you say.

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

trying to determine who wrote the message and why. Hixenbaugh and school officials said they were unaware of any other similar incidents at the school. “This is somewhat out of the ordinary for here,” Jones said. About 650 students attend the

something. Well, you already are. Your tax dollars are going to take care of the people that use the emergency room as their general practitioner – completely the most expensive medical delivery system in the world. I “love” those hospital signs that say “only a 15-minute wait” for the emergency room? Are you joking me? The goal of course is to get people out of the ER and into the true general practitioner for preventative care. Surely you can agree with this. No, no, you say. You still don’t like the mandate. You shouldn’t be forced to have health insurance. So you want to be a freeloader? Whether you’re young or old, the odds are pretty good that you’re going to have to see a doctor at some time in your life. I don’t like paying for your care anymore than you want to pay for mine. I also don’t think either of us wants to see people dying in the streets as if the U.S. was a Third World country. We have laws that require hospitals to provide care (your tax dollars again, thank you very much). Go to the emergency room one of these days. It’s the United Nations of care – young and old, rich and poor and every sort of nationality. Bottom line frankly is that something needs to be done in the states to control the cost of health care. The increases we saw prior to the ACA being passed were simply unsustainable. We business people who want to provide health care for our employees were simply being priced out of this benefit. I couldn’t increase my prices 32 percent and stay in business. I could go on and on. What I’m sick of is the TEA Party of no ideas. How do you propose that we control the increasing costs of health care? I haven’t seen one single rational idea put forward by anyone who professes to be associated with the TEA Party. Instead, I see a bunch of “not me’s” with no ideas and absolutely no consensus (except that they all hate President Obama).

Truly, is there a unified, specific and workable TEA Party plan to control the costs of health care? If not ________ Harley Bradshaw Mechanicsville

Thanks for recognition event I want to say a big “Thank you” to the Hanover County Historical Society and President Art Taylor for such a lovely gathering at the annual Patrick Henry awards reception at Patrick Henry’s Scotchtown on Sept. 15 honoring Linda Marks and Bill Winfrey. My family was so impressed with it all. We are so proud of Bill for all his work and want to thank the Society for recognizing him with the award. We will treasure it! The weather was perfect and the beautiful setting at Scotchtown was a real treat. Everything was well planned, the music was great, and all went very well, I thought. Please express our thanks to all who were involved in making this such a memorable occasion. Thanks again for all you do! Addie and Bill Winfrey and family

Writer: no on Obenshain Virginia cannot afford another Attorney General like Ken Cuccinelli. That’s why I won’t be voting for the TEA Party candidate Mark Obenshain. Obenshain is Ken Cuccinelli’s hand-picked successor. Together, in the State Senate, they sponsored the personhood bill. The Cuccinelli-Obenshain personhood bill would have outlawed common forms of birth control. We’ve all seen how Ken Cuccinelli has used the powers of the Attorney General’s Office to punish women for

making our own private health care decisions. Mark Obenshain would be no different. We all remember the infamous transvaginal ultrasound bill. Mark Obenshain called it a “common sense proposal.” I’m tired of politicians in Richmond dictating to women what we can and can’t do with our own bodies. That’s why my choice for Attorney General is Democrat Mark Herring. Mark Herring believes that women are quite capable of making our own decisions. Mark Obenshain, just like Ken Cuccinelli, is too extreme for Virginia. Jaime Kannan Mechanicsville

Surprised cinema plan before BOS When the idea of putting a cinema complex on Mechanicsville Turnpike bubbled back up to the surface recently, it didn’t occur to me that anyone would actually take it seriously. As a resident of a neighborhood just off Mechanicsville Turnpike, I am flabbergasted to discover that this proposition has made it all the way to the Hanover County Board of Supervisors for a vote! Here are three excellent reasons to remove this festering boil before it bursts and infects the entire east end of the county: 1) Of the four most dangerous intersections in Hanover County, four are on Mechanicsville Turnpike between the Chickahominy River and Lee Davis Road. Are there any plans to improve the already congested traffic conditions (besides the impending nightmare construction on the Bell Creek Road intersection)? 2) In the 1990s, Skate America was a second home hundreds of kids, including mine.

Over time, however, there were so many delinquents from outside the county causing constant disturbances and so much need for deputy intervention that the owner finally got tired of the stress and closed it. 3) Several years ago I attended the Hanover County Citizens Police Academy, a wonderful and enlightening experience. At one point we saw a map of the “hot spots” in the county – the areas that required the most scrutiny and hands-on personnel to keep the peace. Not surprisingly, the hottest spot was the area from the Chickahominy River to Lee Davis Road. If Hanover County residents really want a big cinema complex, why not use some of the wide open space on U.S. 301? There’s plenty of room for traffic and expansion; not to mention convenient proximity to the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office, a resource that will surely be in demand! Cecilia Thomas Mechanicsville

also would add to another Hanover County objective: increasing density in appropriate areas that would let more of Hanover be kept rural. It likely would provide for another Hanover County objective: more work force housing. Many young teachers, law enforcement, medical personnel and county children want to stay in the county but find it difficult to afford housing here. It would be a far better land use to have multiple, regular businesses and residents living there 24/7 rather than very transitory theater audiences between noon and 2 a.m., crammed into a location not well-suited for its traffic surges and a likely gathering place for

Conditional use permits have a place in locating certain uses where not otherwise permitted. However, the “conditions” need to consider the highest and best uses of the land in addition to all the very valid objections the theater opponents are raising. For example, a poor use of land was committed in the building of Lee-Davis High School just across U.S. 360 from the proposed theater location. Some local old-timers told me they opposed locating the school there, but the Hanover County Board of Supervisor approved it anyway. Now we have a high school crammed in there, with abundant traffic and safety issues. On a corner that would be bringing in a lot of tax revenue if it had been developed at its highest and best use, for commercial purposes, it now merely soaks up those revenues. A higher and better use of the proposed theater location would take advantage of a new type of zoning approved by the Board of Supervisors a few years ago. A “mixed” use would have multiple business shops, with apartments above where owners and managers could live, town home residences, a green open space for recreation and a parking garage, etc. Traffic would be minimized as it would be a “walkable” community where residents and others walk to the businesses that provide the services they need. Mixed uses are already popping up in other Virginia communities. A mixed use development

we are deeply grateful to Joan and Macon Brock for their generosity and support in making this dream a reality for our students.” Construction of the 26,000square-foot Brock Commons was made possible through a $5 million gift from Joan and Macon F.

The Virginia Education Association (VEA) has endorsed Toni Radler in her bid for the House of Delegates seat from the 55th District, which includes parts of Hanover, Caroline and Spotsylvania counties. In a letter of endorsement, VEA Fund president Meg Gruber said, “The VEA Fund will recommend your candidacy to our members who live in your House district and will urge them to play a leadership role in helping you achieve victory. The VEA Fund is proud to support candidates like you who measure up on the issues that most concern our members.” Afreen Gootee, president of the Hanover Education Association, presented Radler with a contribution from the VEA Fund as part of its endorsement support. “This endorsement is very important to me because education and making sure that the state fully funds its share of public school costs is my number one priority in this campaign. People move to Hanover because of its world class schools. It is essential that we keep class size low and make sure that our salaries are competitive to retain the best and brightest teachers,” Radler said.

changes in entertainment venues these days could possibly leave us with a vacant 12-screen theater building in a few years. A 12-screen theater building is mostly a one trick pony. It would be hard to repurpose it for other uses if it falls into disuse. Don’t forget how quickly we have seen video stores — and even entire malls — fold in the Richmond area. Mechanicsville District supervisor and Board of Supervisors chairman Canova Peterson is commendably trying to help restore some vigor to our ailing shopping centers by pushing for this theater development. Let’s hope his Board of Supervisors is not remembered for “conditioning� a theater into a place where it is very poorly suited and over the strong, valid objections of the neighbors (and voters) who will have to live with it every night.

Support your fellow citizens in this fight! In only three short months,

the progressive planning “visionaries� and Hanover County Board of Supervisors who support their views are back at it again, trying to bully the citizens and ram through another project (the movie theater in the heart of Mechanicsville). They tried to ram it through without a traffic study. Thanks to South Anna supervisor Wayne Hazzard for suggesting the vote to approve the project should be delayed until further studies are performed. According to the public safety impact statement, this 12-screen theater with a seating capacity of 2,566 will bring to the Mechanicsville area “Quality of life and nuisance issues, traffic accidents, and suspicious and alcohol/drug incidents.� The proposed area is densely populated. In a one-mile radius from the proposed site, 4,966 calls for service from our Sheriff ’s Office were received between July 2012 and July 2013, and the intersection at the northwest corner of the site is the location with the second highest number of motor vehicle accidents in the county. The top four accident locations in the county are located in this area. Consider adding an additional 300 to 500 vehicles from the theatre to a mix of Lee-Davis High School activities, all trying to depart from this normally high congestion area. The increase in driver and pedestrian impatience will certainly increase.

Adorning the top of the Brock Commons cupola is a Yellow-Jacket-inspired weather vane. Constructed of copper and embellished with gold and palladium leafing, it was made by West Coast Weather Vanes, a Santa Cruz, Calif., company. The first weather vane on campus was installed in 2011 and graces Andrews Hall. It was commissioned by Ashland residents Carol and Ray Martin in

honor of their good friends Ira and Anne Andrews. Religious Studies Professor Ira Andrews III ’59 was a beloved member of the R-MC community for more than 50 years.

Residents need to unite

It is a recipe for disaster. If this project is allowed to go forward, I can eventually see one of our young students dying at the intersection of Lee Davis Road and U.S. 360 intersection as they dart through traffic from the high school to McDonald’s. Anyone who travels this intersection knows what I’m talking about. Supervisors who have not seen the area — I implore you visit the location between 4 and 6 p.m. before you vote for this project. Once again, I appeal to you, the citizens of Hanover, to stand

together and fight back door, back room, ram-it-through projects. Ask your supervisors to vote no on the theater in this already, high traffic accident location. Major Mansfield Mechanicsville

Starting with the bombing of Khobar Towers that killed many Americans and injured countless more, through his entire presidency, he just kept trying to sweep that threat away, swatting at it like a blind guy with a ping pong paddle and hoping to hit the ball. On the morning of September 11, 2001, I was sitting in a classroom in West Virginia talking about why there had been so many inquiries from Middle Eastern men wanting to learn how to drive trucks all of a sudden — and then the news came on, we had our answer. No, maybe you don’t think like the way this country was shaped post-9/11 but there are just as many of us that know that there are thousands of Americans that believe in placing blame where it lies.

Business owner opposes theater As a business owner located on Mechanicsville Turnpike, I have noticed students running across U.S. 360, as well as Lee Davis Road, in an effort to get home after school from Stonewall Jackson Middle School or Lee-Davis High School. Even though my son goes to Stonewall, I cannot dream of letting him walk the quarter of a mile from Stonewall to MaKo Music School. There is no moderately safe way for him to do so. With this age of child hood obesity/inactivity being the norm, shouldn’t our priority be on building sidewalks/crosswalks and pedestrian friendly paths for our youngsters as opposed to a movie theater? I see many children running frantically across U.S. 360 and Lee Davis Road on their way to and from school every day. I cannot imagine how a movie theater would make the area safer for our children. Count me as one business owner against the proposed theater. Thank you. Matt Koon Founder/ principal The Mako Music School Mechanicsville

private teleneurology network established by Bon Secours Virginia Health System that can connect possible stroke patients with a qualified neurologist upon minutes of coming through the doors of a hospital, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. And these neurologists aren’t calling on the phone. Instead, the specialty doctors can look directly into the patients’ eyes through a special Tandberg device – a cart with a two-way video monitor that connects wirelessly with Specialists On Call Inc., a company that connects specialists with patients across broadband connections. At any given moment, one of 22 neurologists is on call for Bon Secours’ Virginia patients. The doctors hail from as far away as Texas, California and New Jersey. Dr. Meghan F. Rodden, a local Bon Secours neurologist, said it’s not that local hospitals don’t have neurologists or even neurologists on call — they do. But, in the case of a stroke, seconds count. Even a five-minute traffic snarl delaying a staff neurologist on his or her way to the hospital could affect a patient’s outcome. Clot-busting drugs have to be delivered within a three-hour window of the start of a patient’s symptoms, Rodden said. Kim Pinna, the hospital’s neuroscience coordinator, said that the hospital works with local EMS organizations to train them for quick stroke response. First responders are trained to call ahead at the first sign that a patient they’re transporting is having a stroke, so the hospital can spring into action readying a bed, clearing a CT scan table, and getting the teleneurology call started. “The process starts before they even arrive,” Pinna said. That’s important, she added, noting that up to 32,000 brain

cells die each second during a stroke. Before the teleneurology was available, according to Rodden, MRMC was able to administer clot-bursting drugs to about nine patients a year. This year, they’ve been able to give it to more than 20 patients. Similar numbers have been reported throughout Bon Secours Virginia’s other seven hospitals, she added. Speaking via the Tandberg transmitter from Specialists On Call’s Restin headquarters, New Jersey neurologist Dr. Michell Rubin, who is the service’s chairman of neurology, said his company handles all different kinds of neurological emergencies, but about 70 percent of their calls are strokes. Working from their office or even their home, Specialists On Call neurologists can perform as many as 10 consultations in a typical 4 p.m. to midnight shift, Rubin said. “We have a 15-minute response time. We call, talk to the physician, and look at a CT [Computed Tomography] Scan,” Rubin said. If what the remote neurologist is told by the doctor and sees in the patient’s chart prompts a teleconference, they initiate one. “We do video in about 75 percent of our cases,” Rubin said. Of their stroke cases, Rubin said the neurologists are able to prescribe clot-busting drugs in about 14 percent of cases. The national average, he added, is 5 percent. Dr. Michael S. Fannon, who specializes in Emergency Medicine, said having a neurologist to turn to is a relief when dealing with the nuanced symptoms of a stroke. Cam Crittenden, MRMC’s director of Emergency Department Operations and EMS outreach, said the service is a great comfort to staff. Neurology, a mysterious field, can be scary for medical personnel who don’t specialize in

it, she said. Grubbs, who has been designated as the hospital’s “stroke champion,” said she loves the mystery of neurology and the detective work it takes to figure out what’s happening in a patient’s head. “Neurology is not very comfortable for a lot of people in the medical field,” Grubbs said. “Neuro’s like olives: You either love it or hate it.” But what about the patients? According to Crittenden and Pinna, patients are very receptive when the teleneurology network is brought into play, and are often fascinated by the Tandberg cart. “Technology is a part of their lives,” Crittenden said. “They feel special,” Pinna added. “They’re like, ‘Wow, I have a doctor from Texas!’ ” Once the critical initial moments of medical treatment have passed, staff neurologists continue care for patients, Rodden said. Rodden was quick to point out that the miraculous outcomes reported from clot-busting drugs depend as much on the patients and those around them as care from medical personnel. After all, if a patient doesn’t seek medical care quickly, the drugs won’t work. Often, Rodden said, patients have been having symptoms for hours or even days before they reach the hospital. “Usually, having a stroke doesn’t hurt,” Rodden said. “If they’re not here, there’s nothing we can do.” Memorial Regional Medical Center is a designated Joint Commission-Certified Primary Stroke Center. In 2014, it will begin providing intra-arterial tPA and endovascular clot removal procedures in addition to the tPA treatment it already offers. Bon Secours completed its Virginia teleneurology network in September.

Local girl recognized at Heart Walk Karrah Bauserman is recipient of movin’ mania Kid’s Lifestyle Change Award Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com

K

arrah Bauserman of Mechanicsville was the teen winner of the movin’ mania Kid’s Lifestyle Change Award at the American Heart Association’s Richmond Heart Walk, which was held on Sept. 28 at Brown’s Island in Richmond. Karrah was among several youths chosen from dozens of applications for eating healthier, becoming more active and encouraging their friends or family to get more heart healthy with them. She works out regularly at the Virginia Commonwealth University T.E.E.N.s gym and

plays basketball. She said she has replaced drinking sugary sodas with water and is conscientious about portion size and reading food labels. Karrah received a Redsdkins jersey and VIP tickets to the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center. The Richmond Heart Walk raised $725,000 in donations. At the walk, participants completed 1-mile or 3.5-mile routes around the Island to help raise awareness for heart disease and to support the education, programs and research goals of the American Heart Association. Teams representing local businesses, universities and

community groups walked together with brightly colored matching shirts to show their unity. The event also featured Hands-Only CPR demonstrations, children’s activities, health screenings and other educational exhibits to help attendees learn more about their risks for cardiovascular diseases and to improve their health. During the opening ceremonies, Andrea Woie, AHA volunteer and heart attack survivor at age 32, shared her story with the crowd. Woie emphasized the importance of knowing your family history for heart diseases and applauded the AHA’s Go Red for Women movement for

educating millions of women about their risks for heart disease and stroke over the past 10 years. Nineteen-year-old Kristen Cox detailed her battle with a congenital heart defect since 18 months old. Five open heart surgeries and six cardiac catheterizations later, Kristen said she is thankful for the cardiovascular research funded by the American Heart Association, which has contributed to the medical advances making it possible for her to live a long and healthy life. The Richmond Heart Walk was sponsored nationally by Subway and Jenny Craig and locally by My Heart. My Life.

Dam rehab project wins state award A multi-year partnership between the residents of a Hanover subdivision and the Department of Public Works has resulted in a dam project that has won a state award. When the Forest Lake Hills subdivision was established in 1959, its central amenity was a 12-acre lake, with a dam at Linderwood Drive. The homeowners association assumed ownership and liability for the dam in 1965. Over the decades, however, the dam deteriorated. State regulations also became more stringent. As re-certification for the dam approached in 2008, the homeowners’ subdivision created a Lake Committee to study its options for repairing the dam. The committee was chaired by Kathy Billups, with J.D. Fisher as vice-chair. Then came Tropical Storm Gaston, which accelerated the dam’s disrepair. The downstream side of the dam was collapsing. Subdivision residents knew the dam faced a crisis. “At that point we were all try-

Heatherwood Drive and elsewhere around the church. The ground lay between the opposing lines, and witnessed the ebbs and flows of fierce and constant skirmishing. Wounded a year earlier while resisting Pickett’s Charge at the Battle of Gettysburg, Brig. Gen. John Gibbon led the 2nd Division of Maj. Gen. Winfield Scott Hancock’s II Corps in the fighting there. The Confederates probably belonged to two veteran divisions led by major generals Charles W. Field and Henry Heth. Some historians consider the fighting in that area to be a part of the renowned Battle of Cold Harbor because the balance of both armies had moved to Cold Harbor by June 1, leaving these troops as the northernmost anchors of the respective lines that stretched all the

way beyond Cold Harbor. The Historic Polegreen Church, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is located at 6411 Heatherwood Drive in Mechanicsville. The brochures can be found at venues throughout the Commonwealth, including area rest stops, and the website is located at historicpolegreen. org. The Civil War Trust is the largest nonprofit battlefield preservation organization in the United States. Its mission is to preserve the nation’s endangered Civil War battlefields and to promote appreciation of these hallowed grounds. To date, the Trust has preserved more than 36,000 acres of battlefield land in 20 states. Learn more at www.civilwar.org, the home of the Civil War sesquicentennial.


Valor Awards to honor law enforcement officers Law enforcement officers who have performed outstanding acts of courage, putting themselves in danger of personal risk and injury, will be recognized at the 24th Annual Valor Awards and Ceremony, which will be held from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 1, at the Greater Richmond Convention Center. This year’s award winners serve the areas of Richmond City and the counties of Chesterfield, Hanover and Henrico. Area law enforcement and fire chiefs will present awards to the deserving nominees. Thomas Silvestri, president and publisher of the Richmond Times-Dispatch and vice president of the Richmond Group, BH Media Group, will be the 2013 keynote speaker. Silvestri is the son of a police officer and will talk about his father’s experiences as well as the importance of honoring and thanking first responders and their families who provide support that allows them to serve SILVESTRI our communities. He came into his role in January 2005. Prior to his current position, Silvestri was president of Media General’s community newspapers and was responsible for 20 daily newspapers and more than 25 weekly publications in five Southeastern states. This year’s emcee will be Lisa Schaffner, director of public relations and marketing for United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS). The breakfast event is open to the public and attendees will include the award winners and their families, friends, co-workers, members of the Retail Merchants Association and the local business community and the civilians who support the event and first responders. Nancy Thomas, president/CEO of Retail Merchants Association, said she believes this event is essential to properly recognize these men and women for their service to our community: “The Annual Valor Awards gives Retail Merchants Association and our community the opportunity to thank all first responders and their families, whose support is critical to these individuals’ ongoing dedication to their jobs. We are happy to provide this awards ceremony to

thank our first responders.” Every year, Fire, EMS and police chiefs are asked to nominate candidates for the Valor Awards. Honors are awarded based on three sets of criteria which the winners must meet to win a Gold, Silver or Bronze award. All three awards are not necessarily presented at each year’s Valor Awards. Criteria for each situation are as follows: Gold — The highest award to an individual in recognition of an act involving extreme personal risk, which is clearly above and beyond the call of duty. Silver — Awarded to an individual in recognition of acts involving great personal risk, which is clearly above and beyond the call of duty. Bronze — Awarded to an individual in recognition of acts involving unusual personal risk beyond what is expected while performing their usual responsibilities. Bronze awards also may be presented to officers who demonstrate unusual judgment, zeal or ingenuity.

ing to decide what could be repaired and what the cost would be,” Billups said. The association was the legal owner of the dam but did not have very much money. “We talked about taking the Band-Aid approach,” she said. “The ultimate repair was beyond our means.” The answer was what Fisher called “a great partnership” with the county and specifically the Department of Public Works, which was able to secure funding through the Regional Stormwater Management Program Director Mike Flagg and engineer Mike Dieter attended association meetings and worked closely with residents. “I think one of the things that made it go as well as it did was the way we stayed in communication,” Fisher said. Working together, the county and the association negotiated a land swap with an adjacent property owner outside the subdi-

vision. The department then obtained easements from about 40 landowners adjacent to or impacted by the lake. The repairs consisted of:  Removing trees and other vegetation;  Repairing damaged and eroded areas in the embankment;  Sealing off a corrugated metal discharge pipe;  Removing an old corrugated metal emergency spillway;  Installing new concrete discharge channels with two new 5’ by 8’ box culverts under the roadway;  Installing a de-watering structure (used to lower the water level when repairs are required);  Restoring the road and establishing grass on top of the dam after repairs were completed. The result: “It’s top-notch,” Fisher said. “We’ve got a first-class dam.” The Virginia Lakes and Watersheds Association agreed, honoring the project by presenting Hanover with its “Best Major

Rehabilitation Project Dam Award”. According to Steve Snell of the state’s Division of Dam Safety, this association is the premier stormwater organization in Virginia; its members are mostly private sector engineers. “Hanover had done a lot of rehabilitating all these old dams so they could meet stormwater regulations in the last two years,” Snell said. “They were an easy choice for the award. This project should last that community for years.” Like other dams the county has rehabilitated in recent years, the Forest Lake Hills dam also now has a lakewater level monitoring system. This system enables the county to remotely monitor its status during extreme weather events. Unfortunately, Flagg said, funding for these kinds of projects may end as changes in stormwater rules at the state level limit crediting for these types of rehabilitations. “But we are not going to give up trying,” he said.

Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com As Halloween quickly approaches and people are planning their elaborate costumes, many may be tempted to use cosmetic contact lenses as a final touch. However, Virginia ophthalmologists – medical doctors specializing in the diagnosis, medical and surgical treatment of eye diseases and conditions – are warning consumers that doing so without a prescription can lead to permanent vision loss. Although the practice has been illegal since 2005, today cosmetic contact lenses are still sold in shops and via online retailers to customers who are unaware that wearing these devices can result in serious, potentially blinding eye injuries. Retailers often market these products as cosmetics, fashion accessories or toys, when, in fact, they are medical devices that require prescriptions and FDA approval. According to the Virginia Society of Eye Physicians and Surgeons and the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the lenses, which are often not manufactured to meet federal health and safety standards,

can cause injuries such as cuts and open sores in the protective layer of the iris and pupil (corneal abrasions and ulcers) and potentially blinding painful bacterial infections (keratitis). These injuries can require serious eye surgeries such as corneal transplants, and, in some cases, lead to permanent vision loss. One study found that wearing cosmetic contact lenses increased the keratitis risk by more than 16 times. To safely wear decorative contact lenses this Halloween or any time of year, the American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends following these guidelines:  Only buy decorative contact lenses from an eye care professional such as an ophthalmologist or a retailer that requires a prescription and sells FDA-approved products.  If you don’t already have a contact lens prescription,

obtain a valid prescription and eye exam from an ophthalmologist or optometrist, a health care professional who provides primary vision care ranging from sight testing and correction to the diagnosis, treatment and management of vision changes  Even for those with perfect vision, an eye exam and prescription are mandatory in order to fit the right size contacts. Do not fall victim to false advertising claims and lenses labeled as “one size fits all” or “no need to see an eye specialist.”  Follow the directions for cleaning, disinfecting and wearing the lenses. Contacts that are left in for too long or that are not properly cleaned and disinfected can significantly increase the risk of an eye infection.  Never share contact lenses with another person or wear expired lenses.  If you notice redness, swelling, excessive discharge, pain or discomfort from wearing contact lenses, remove the lenses and seek immediate medical attention from an ophthalmologist. Eye infections like keratitis can quickly become serious and cause blindness if left untreated. For more information on cosmetic contact lens safety, visit www.geteyesmart.org.

‘Scouting for Food’ drive to benefit FeedMore Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com An estimated 8,000 Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts and Venture Scouts will fan out through Central Virginia neighborhoods on Saturday, Oct. 26, distributing grocery bags doorto-door marking phase one of the annual “Scouting for Food” effort, now in its 26th year. On Saturday, Nov. 2, phase two will get underway when the Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts and Venture Scouts will return to these same neighborhoods to collect the bags filled with donations. “This year, nearly 260,000 households will receive a bag on Oct. 26, and it is our hope that thousands of Central Virginia residents will fill these bags with non-perishable items like peanut butter, canned vegetables, canned fruits, tuna fish, and

more,” said Jeff Baldwin, media and public relations manager for FeedMore. “According to Boy Scouts of America’s Heart of Virginia Council, approximately 15 percent of households that receive a bag will actually donate food, but more than ever, we need the entire community to pitch in, ensuring that FeedMore is able to continue providing food to those in need.” “Currently, there are over 206,000 individuals in our community that live with hunger every day – a statistic that includes a staggering 51,000 children,” Baldwin said. “A small, five percent increase in participation during ‘Scouting for Food’ would equate to thousands of pounds of additional food donated.” “Each day, FeedMore’s Central Virginia Food Bank

distributes, on average, 83,000 pounds of food, so food drives like ‘Scouting for Food’ are critical to our mission, more so than ever in these tough economic times,” Baldwin added. Those making donations should place their filled bags outside their front doors by 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 2, and individuals who do not receive a bag, but want to participate, may make a food donation at any Richmondarea Martin’s location. Last year, 197,000 pounds of food were donated to FeedMore’s Central Virginia Food Bank through “Scouting for Food.”

FeedMore and Boy Scouts of America’s Heart of Virginia Council hope to collect at least 206,000 pounds of food this year. Financial contributions also can be made by visiting www. feedmore.org.

Sheriff ’s Office and Ashland HCSO helps Special Olympics police join in drug take-back From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 26, the Hanover Sheriff ’s Office and the Ashland Police Department will be participating with the Richmond District Office of the Drug Enforcement Administration in the sixth National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day. This is a free service. The Mechanicsville Solid Waste Center located on Verdi Lane and the Ashland Police Department have been established as collection sites. Citizens can safely surrender their expired, unwanted or unused pharmaceuticals and medications — no questions asked, no identification required. These items include:  Prescription medications and over-thecounter solid dosage medications (e.g., tablets, capsules, pills, etc.)  Liquid products, such as prescription cough syrups (keep sealed in original container) The following are examples of items that will not be accepted:  Intra-venous solutions, injectables and needles  Illicit substances such as marijuana or

methamphetamine This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines — flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash — pose potential safety and health hazards. To learn more about this initiative, as well as the dangers of prescription drugs, visit the following websites:  http://www.deadiversion.usdoj.gov/drug_ disposal/takeback/index.html  http://www.getsmartaboutdrugs.com/  http://www.dare.com/kids/index_3.htm Information submitted by Lt.

Patriots hold fast to earn first win of season By Jacob Downer For The Mechanicsville Local Patrick Henry High School entered Friday night’s Homecoming game against Thomas Jefferson High School knowing full well that it could possibly be their last chance for a home victory in the 2013 campaign. Patrick Henry made a goalline stand with just over a minute remaining in the game to stop a potential game-winning Thomas Jefferson scoring drive and preserve a much-needed 23-19 victory. An exuberant Patriots’ student section storming the field just seconds after the game ended proved the previously winless team’s effort was much appreciated. Bender Vaught led Patrick Henry to its first win of the season, finishing with 222 yards rushing, with 49 of them and a touchdown coming on five carries during the Patriots’ gamewinning touchdown drive late in the fourth quarter. “I’m just so proud of the effort these guys have showed all year long. Going 0-6 out of the gate is a tough road to hoe and it’s tough to keep kids on the right path and in the right mindset,” said head coach Jonathon Clark. “We’ve been in some tight ballgames this year and just not been able to finish, and this was kind of our excla-

mation point that we can in fact finish. Hopefully this gives us a boost for the rest of the year.” Friday night’s contest was not decided until the final Viking drive of the game, leaving fans on both sides of a packed house on their feet until the very end. After Vaught scored on an 8-yard touchdown run with

just over five minutes left in the game to regain a 23-19 lead for the Patriots, Thomas Jefferson set up shop on their own 48yard line and went to work on attempting a game-winning touchdown drive. Quarterback ShaQuan Patterson and running back Quentin Fowlkes took turns picking up small chunks of

yardage for the Vikings as they ran they clock down and inched closer to the end zone. Facing a critical fourth-and3 from the Patriots’ 43 yard-line with just over three minutes left, Fowlkes powered through the left side of the line and picked up a crucial first down. Then, on second-andseven from the 34-yard line,

Patterson found a wide-open Kiyelle Whitaker open on the right side. Whitaker made a few defenders miss and took the ball all the way down to the Patrick Henry 11 yard-line, setting up the dramatic final defensive stand with barely two minutes left in the contest. The Patriot defense stood strong on the first three downs,

setting up a fourth-andfour from just five yards out. Patterson was attempting to hand the ball off to Whitaker on a wide receiver end-around, but the snap was late and the handoff was fumbled. A slew of Patriot defenders pounced on the football, ending the scoring threat and securing the win – the first victory for the rookie head coach Clark. “I told the defense we had to have that last play, that we just

themselves and stormed back onto the field in the second half, scoring on all six of their possessions. DeHart said the main adjustment the Cavaliers needed to make was mental. “Calm down, execute your position, and everything’s going to be fine,” DeHart said. “Believe in your brother next to you, he’s going to do his job, [and] you do your job.”

Senior Dre Smith, who had a total of 82 yards, 51 rushing and 31 receiving, was the one bright spot for the Cavaliers in the first half. “Number 5, he’s the one who’s got it right now,” said DeHart of Smith. “He’s going to leave it all on the field. That’s what each and every one of you [has] got to do.” On King William’s first possession of the third quarter,

DeHart decided to run a hurryup offense to speed up the pace of the game. The change in tempo allowed the Cavaliers to ram the ball down the Blue Devils’ throats. Cavaliers’ wide receiver Malcolm Jackson finished with four catches for 52 yards while also rushing for 44 yards, and scored a total of three touchdowns. He helped jump start King William’s second half, as he scored a touchdown on a 7yard reception on its first drive of the third quarter. Jones completed 11 of 17 passes for 146 yards and a touchdown. He rushed for another score. On Matthews’ first possession of the half, Harrington threw an interception to King William’s sophomore defensive back Alex Carter. “We gave them an inch, and they took a mile,” said Mathew’s head coach Ryan Wenner. “We came out soft in the second half, and they took advantage of it.” It didn’t get any better for Mathews from that point on, as the teams settled into a pattern of turnovers on downs for the Blue Devils and touchdowns for the Cavaliers. “We’ve got to learn how to

time thanks to two interceptions returned for touchdowns. Patrick Henry (1-6) held a 7-0 lead until midway through the third quarter, when quarterback Tyler Phelps was picked off by Amani Williams, who returned it 46 yards down the sideline for a touchdown. After Patrick Henry hit a field goal on their next drive to take a 10-7 lead, the Viking defense came up with another huge play just before the half. With under a minute remaining and deep in his own territory, Phelps again

was picked off, this time by Desmond Smith. The junior returned it 10 short yards to the end zone, giving Thomas Jefferson a 12-10 lead heading into the break. The teams traded secondhalf passing touchdowns before Vaught’s run gave the Patriots the lead for good. “For the most part, we played pretty hard tonight. We didn’t capitalize on our opportunities and we turned the ball over when we shouldn’t have,” coach Chad Hornik said. “Our defense played well but

By Josiah Turner For The Mechanicsville Local With a 14-7 lead at halftime, it looked like Mathews High School would spoil King William High School’s homecoming Friday night. The Cavaliers struggled to get its offense started, and the defense often struggled to stop the visiting Blue Devils. But King William came out strong after the breather and – after scoring 42 unanswered points – allowed its fans to leave satisfied with a 49-14 victory. “Our guys just had to wake up a little bit,” said King William head coach Dylan DeHart. “Once they did, it was game over.” Early on, the Blue Devils seemed unimpressed by the fact that they were the underdogs. On the first possession, quarterback Will Harrington found a streaking Deondre Foster for a 78-yard touchdown reception. King William’s first drive in response ended ominously when quarterback Jacob Jones was picked off by Blue Devils’ Mason Kent. The interception gave Mathews the confidence to run seemingly at will over the Cavaliers, who for their part seemed in disarray throughout

the first half. Mathews’ Cody Correll, who had 14 carries for 63 yards, set up the second touchdown of the night, a 1-yard quarterback draw by Harrington. At halftime, the crowd was getting a bit worried that the highly favored Cavaliers might get upset by the Blue Devils, who came to the night with just a 1-5 record. But King William refocused

No letdown, no letup as Atlee tramples Jaguars By Arthur Utley For The Mechanicsville Local After his Atlee football team set school history by defeating Hanover and Varina back to back for the first time, head coach Roscoe Johnson and his staff could have worried about how the Raiders would come out for Friday night’s game at Glen Allen. Forget about any letdown. Atlee, 6-1 and ranked No. 5 in The Richmond TimesDispatch Top 10, pounded the Jaguars 70-0. The 70 points equaled the school record established in September against Deep Run. “First of all, Varina [then ranked No. 3] was a big game, so it kind of boosted our heads a little bit, but I had to tell my team to keep it level … we couldn’t get big headed because after a big win there could be a big loss,” running back Loumond Dandridge Jr. said. “We stayed level and played it like it was just another team.” Dandridge, a junior, carried the ball eight times for 97 yards and touchdown runs of 1, 31 and 8 yards. He also caught a 9-yard TD pass from backup quarterback Travis Barton, who

Johnson doesn’t have to do much to motivate the Raiders. “They pump themselves up. These guys are resilient. I don’t have to tell them much because they see each game…as if we’re playing against a national champion, a team that is No. 1 in the state,” Johnson said. “Because when you have that mentality every game, we play it like it’s our last. They have a point to prove. … They have a focus. We think presently. We don’t think about the future.” The Raiders are in solid position for a berth, one of eight available, in the 5A South playoffs. They want to be among the top four seeds in order to have a first-round home game. Six of the current top eight are ranked in The Times-Dispatch Top 10.

Springers’ Johnson proves too much for Lee-Davis to handle By Paislee Winkler For The Mechanicsville Local Highland Springs High School quarterback D.J. Johnson proved more than Lee-Davis High School could handle. Johnson completed nine-of 15 passes for 251 yards and four touchdowns and rushed for another score to lead the visiting Springers, ranked No. 3 in the Times-Dispatch poll, to a 34-14 victory over the Confederates Friday night.

The quarterback made his presence felt on the first play from scrimmage, completing a pass to K.C. Hinton for a 69-yard touchdown. Johnson’s other scoring connections were a 14-yard pass to Felton Davis, a 7-yard pass to Marcus Taylor and a 57-yard pass to Kenneth Jones. Johnson’s other score came on a 1-yard run. Highland Springs’ head coach Loren Johnson said his quarterback, a four-year starter, is a key to the Springers’ success

this season. “Johnson puts us in good positions to do a lot of good thing when he has the opportunity,” Loren Johnson said. “So we will just take it and run with it.” Lee-Davis (3-4) kept close to the Springers (6-1) throughout the first half, responding to D.J. Johnson’s first touchdown with a 15-yard scoring run by Austin Rice. The Confederates trailed by just one touchdown until 28 seconds before the half when

Johnson connected with Davis to give Highland Springs a 2114 lead. While the Confederates struggled to get their offense going in the second half, D.J. Johnson was on a roll. “I just feel like when I am on the field I feel like no one can stop me, I feel unstoppable,” he said. “The way the [offensive] line was blocking tonight I feel the team was unstoppable. The Springers’ combined passing and running attacks

helped keep the Confederate defense on its heels. Loren Johnson said it is important not to be a one-dimensional team. “Throw the ball when you have to. Run the ball when you have to,” Loren Johnson said. “It creates a tough practice schedule but our kids have done a good job. It makes me feel good as a coach.” The Confederates, who fought Highland Springs through three overtimes last year, could not get much trac-

tion Friday night. “We moved the ball effectively in the first half but we couldn’t [move] it in the second”, said Lee-Davis head coach Zac Hayden, “We were not effective running the ball like we have been the past two weeks.” Hayden said the Springers’ defense had a lot to do with the Confederates’ inability to move the ball. “I think they had us schemed

Randolph-Macon gets sweet revenge on Generals with 1:10 remaining. “Our defense came up huge for us in that last drive, forcing that turnover. I can’t say enough about the heart those guys showed today,” Arruza said. Washington and Lee arrived at Day Field with the top rushing attack in Division III (370 yards per game). The Generals rushed for 331 yards against R-MC, but lost two fumbles. Lombardo led W&L with 194 yards on 21 carries.

By Jacob Downer For The Mechanicsville Local The last time RandolphMacon faced Washington and Lee, the Yellow Jackets got drilled 49-14 and had plenty of time to think about the loss on the longride back from Lexington. How sweet revenge can be. Randolph-Macon (5-1, 3-0 ODAC) rolled up 396 total yards on offense, 250 of those coming on the ground, on the way to a 27-21 homecoming victory over the visiting Generals (3-3, 1-2) Saturday at Day Field. Senior running back Will McGhee led the way for the Yellow Jackets. McGhee rushed for 191 yards and four touchdowns on 31 carries. The win was the Yellow Jackets’ fifth in a row and broke a three-game losing streak against Washington and Lee. “This was a very exciting win today and I’m extremely proud of our kids. There were several turning points there things could have gone against us but our kids kept fighting and stayed positive,” said Randolph Macon head coach Pedro Arruza. “This was a huge win for us.” Despite leading 14-0 at halftime and 21-7 midway through

Randolph-Macon running back Will McGhee (27) breaks around the right side of the line as Washington & Lee linebacker Jake Barr (48) and defensive back Mitchell Thompson (23) close in during the Yellow Jackets’ 27-21 victory over the Generals Saturday.

An unsuccessful conversion kick sent W&L’s offense onto the field needing six points to tie and seven to win. The Generals, who had scored touchdowns on each of

their previous three second-half drives, never reached midfield. They faced third-down-and9 from their own 37 when quarterback Nick Lombardo attempted to run for the first

down on an option keeper. Lombardo fumbled when grabbed 2 yards short of the first-down marker by a gang of R-MC defenders. Yellow Jackets senior Abel Simpson recovered

Phipps for a 23-yard TD pass in the first half that ended with Atlee up 35-0. The highlight of the second half was Tye Burris’ 60-yard punt return for a touchdown that counted. Twice earlier in the game Burris returned punts for TDs that were negated by penalties. Penalties have been Atlee’s nemesis all season. “In order to get where we need to go, we have to get better on our penalties. When you are averaging something like a 100 yards in penalties [each

week], that isn’t good,” Johnson said. “When you play against a good team, eventually it’s going to come back and haunt you [like in the loss to Douglas Freeman]. I’m saying when we get into crunch time, we can’t have those situations. We’ve got to fix that. “We’re balanced, we can throw short we can throw deep or we can run the football. It’s just a matter of whether we can take care of the simple, mental mistakes.”

the third quarter, the Yellow Jackets needed a late defensive stand to secure their victory. McGhee’s fourth touchdown, a 3-yard burst with 3:26 remaining, broke a 21-21 tie.

By Jordan Bondurant Richmond Times Dispatch Midlothian senior Tommy Mulroy was more focused on his team’s performance than his own before Saturday’s MileStat Invitational cross country race at Pole Green Park. Both, as it turned out, were worth watching. Mulroy placed third in the Varsity A Boys race, running the 5,000-meter course in 15:37. Louis Colson of Thomas Edison won the race in 15:21, breaking the course record set in 2007 by Silas Frantz of Douglas Freeman. The Trojans finished second in the team standings behind James W. Robinson. Evan Benjamin and Collin Hahn played big roles in Midlothian’s success. Benjamin finished eighth (15:46). Hahn was 15th (15:54). “We didn’t go run (at the Manhattan College Invitational) last week,” Mulroy said. “And since we hadn’t all run in many races this season, we wanted to try to run together and do the best we could. I think we did pretty well.” Midlothian coach Stan Morgan said he was pleased with the outcome, but knows that the real time to shine for his athletes will be in the conference, region and state meets that are quickly approaching. “It’s nice to do well at an invitational,” Morgan said. “But at the end of the day, those postseason races are the most important for us. I’d rather see my guys peak in a championship race than in an invitational setting where there’s not a whole lot on the line.” Lake Braddock has led the charge for northern Virginia schools in girls cross country in recent years. In the Varsity A Girls race, the Bruins showcased their dominance with a 1-

2 sweep. Hannah Christen won in 18:08. Katy Kunc trailed by only 10 seconds. Mills Godwin senior Katharine Benfer wanted to try to keep pace with the group of Christen, Kunc and Macey Schweikert from James W. Robinson. With Trinity Episcopal senior Molly Breidenbaugh creeping ever closer in the closing meters, Benfer was able to beat the former Hanover runner while maintaining contact with the leaders. Benfer finished fourth (18:21). “Running with the leaders was really the focus here,” Benfer said. “I felt pretty good about the race, but I was glad I was able to not let the leaders get way ahead.” Breidenbaugh held her position after Benfer passed her. She finished fifth with a time of 18:22. She was proud of the finish after running at Pole Green Park for the first time as a Titan. “It was tough,” Breidenbaugh

said. “Being back out on the course didn’t bring back any specific memories. I was just trying to run the best race I could. I’m glad I was able to run this well against competition like this since I probably won’t get to do it again until the big national meets in November.” Freddie Shashaty of James River won the Varsity B Boys race in 16:18. Jamie Hiegel of Trinity Episcopal was second (16:25). Amy Dunham of Patrick Henry was second in the Varsity B Girls race (19:42). Katie Bowe from Trinity Episcopal was ninth (20:12).
