The Emergency Preparedness and Serious Incident Survival training team consists of, from left, Scott Nevil, Brad Phlipot and Tom Robinson.

March 12, 2014

Tom Robinson, chief of Global Emergency Response, and his training team recently provided practical tips to help individuals, families and neighborhoods get ready to deal with a wide range of challenges from tornadoes to terrorist incidents. This overview of Emergency Preparedness and Serious Incident Survival was hosted by the King William T.E.A. Party’s Education Committee and held in King William County‘s Administration Building. While brief, the training included tips on setting up a network to connect individuals in widespread and prolonged power outages when electronic communications are no longer available. This, Robinson noted, facilitates life-saving networking for those who need medical attention, refrigeration for medications, sources for 4x4s, chainsaws, food, fuel and heat. Team members, recently retired Marine Scot Nevil and former Navy Special Warfare operator Brad Phlipot, addressed some important additional considerations. These included methods for finding water

and making it safe to drink, ensuring an adequate supply of food for short-term and longterm needs, health and medical issues, as well as preparing “grab-and-go” kits if immediate evacuation is necessary. A comprehensive informational handout, provided as part of the training, lists numerous internet resources for specific topics in the program including this link: offgridsurvival. com/survivalwebsites/ The emergency preparedness theme will continue at 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 27, at the county administration building with a presentation by local resident Joe Ordia, co-founder of Preparedness Experts Group, offering tips and resources for preparing your home and family. KWTP’s meetings are open to all citizens. They begin promptly at 7 p.m. and dismiss by 8 p.m. Meetings are usually conducted the second and fourth Thursdays each month at the King William County Administration Building just off U.S. 30 at Horse Landing Road behind the old courthouse.

tions. Janet Lawson, Human Resources director, said the county has lost about 80 fulltime positions in the past five years. This year’s proposal restores 20 of them. She said future budgets would address other lost positions. Supervisors had not considered the additional positions in past years with belt-tightening budgets and some had questions. “We want to be well staffed, but we don’t want to be overstaffed. Are we looking at these same increases over the next five years?” Mechanicsville repsee BUDGET, pg. 7 

meant the remaining staff was responsible for an additional 300 cases. “In summary, I’m asking for $25,000 for these positions,” Chalkley said. “I’m not asking for this based on the personality of the individual; I am basing this on what the position requires.” Chalkley said he does not expect compensation that equates to those in other districts around the city, but does seek enough funding to serve the citizens of Hanover County. “I don’t expect to be equal, but I expect to be competitive. At this point of time, I’m not competitive.”

“I get to give you the good news in the budget this year,” Seay said. Revenues are up and personal property values also are on the rise and sales tax revenues are increasing, all ongoing revenue for the county. The 2015 proposed budget also restores a popular program among Hanover employees, the tuition reimbursement plan that was eliminated in last year’s budget. Fifty-three employees are taking advantage of the system, which assists in tuition costs for employees who qualify. After five years of stagnant hiring and employee reductions, Hanover County is ready to refill some of those lost posi-

and lost preparation and personal relationships regarding trials. “When they are replaced, they seniors have to train them,” he said. “All that takes time away from their cases,” Chalkley said. Chalkley stressed the importance of maintaining a quality staff to the citizens of Hanover County. “My goal is to retain my people.” He noted that two of his attorneys left the office to pursue careers in private practice. “With less than two years’ experience, they are doing better in private practice than they did in this office.” The departure of the two attorneys

Members of the Hanover County Board of Supervisors are getting to the nuts and bolts of this year’s budget as they begin consideration of the 2015 proposal. Last week, they held their first workshop session regarding the 2015 budget. Kathleen Seay, Finance and Management Services director, provided an overview of this year’s Five-Year Plan and revenues associated with that plan as it relates to this year’s proposed budget, which was presented on Feb. 26 by County Administrator Cecil R. “Rhu”

Harris Jr. The county’s budget director told the supervisors that the plan is still optimistic and “slow but steady” increases are expected throughout the revenue stream. Property taxes, sales taxes and state returns account for 93 percent of anticipated revenues and all are showing increased returns. Some permitting fees are rising slightly under the 2015 budget proposal. Building permit and recycling fees will rise slightly if the new plan is adopted. Health care costs for employee costs are expected to increase by 2.4 percent.

OPINION | The Local Views

Cruelty from behind a computer screen

From the editor

To develop or not to develop is the question Might as well open by putting it right out there and eliminate any doubt: This writer supports development, growth and economic prosperity. But, on the other hand, there is something to be said for those residents who speak up during the governmental planning stages if they have the “not in my backyard” attitude. How much regulation should be involved on the part of government? Then again, do you think a landowner should be allowed to manage his/her property at will? With the movie theater debate behind us (at least for now), attention is being focused on the Bell Creek Road/Pole Green Road intersection. Plans are underway for retail businesses and residences. Hanover Land Investors LLC is on the agenda for the 7 p.m. Thursday, March 20, meeting of the Hanover County Planning Commission in the Administration Building at the Hanover County Government Complex at Hanover Courthouse. A public hearing will be conducted. The agenda said the request is “to rezone from A-1, Agricultural District to RM(c), Multi-Family Residential District with conditions and B-1(c), Neighborhood Business District with conditions . . . consisting of approximately 24.45 acres . . .” It also lists the property as being designated on the General Land Use Plan Map as Commercial and Suburban High (four to eight dwelling units per acre). “The proposed zoning amendment would permit the creation of 121 building lots for a gross density of 5.49 dwelling units per acre.” It just so happens yours truly resides in the vicinity of the proposed development. Definitely interested, especially in the additional retail opportunities. It’s still very much a wait-and-see situation. Whatever your opinion is on the project, March 20 is the time to speak out — whether you are for it or against it. Bottom line, though, is —should the proposal continue to advance — the final decision will be made by the Hanover County Board of Supervisors. Planning Commission members and the districts they represent are: .Jerry W. Bailey, Henry; Randy Whittaker, Mechanicsville; Edmonia Iverson, Beaverdam; Caliborne R. Winborne, Ashland; C. Harold Padgett Jr., Chickahominy; Larry Leadbetter, South Anna; and Ashley Peace, Cold Harbor. Melody Kinser

By Jodi Deal News Editor We hear a lot about bullying, cyberbullying in particular, among children and teens. Electronic aggression among adults is viewed separately in the eyes of the law. Laws addressing adult cyberharassment and/or cyberstalking are on the books in most states, as are laws specifically addressing cyberbullying among minors. Not all “sticks and stones” thrown online qualify as the kind of harassment that can result in legitimate legal action — the same goes for the noncyber world. But just as words written on paper

or said face-to-face can still hurt, so can cruelty transmitted electronically. No matter what you want to call it, grown-ups and teens alike are susceptible to rumor-mongering, namecalling and just plain meanness issued through social media, e-mails, text messages and websites of all kinds. The worst of it, in my opinion, happens on websites where there’s absolutely no requirement for posters to provide any identifying information. Unless someone has gone out of their way to create an anonymous Facebook profile, their comments and posts on that particular social network are clearly coming from a specific person. On anonymous message board sites, posts come from users identified only by handles like “thatsthetruth,”

“wants to know,” “Colorado Chick” and “Wow.” Emboldened by having little to no accountability for their words, I’ve seen anonymous forum users lob everything from schoolyard insults about people’s appearance, personality and private lives to salacious accusations of crime or worse. I’ve seen people’s deaths incorrectly alleged, and rumors of extramarital affairs blossom. Comment threads grow more frenzied as more anonymous users jump on board, offering information that, for the most part, can’t be confirmed in any way. Elsewhere on the worldwide web are entire websites dedicated to maksee CRUELTY, pg. 17

Reader supports ‘Snow day’ homework I just opened up today’s Local and the letter from Becky Cassilly prompted me to write. In the 15 years I’ve been a Hanover County resident and Local reader, I have never been more appalled by a fellow resident’s sentiments. I cannot believe Becky has the gall to complain about teachers assigning her student too much work. I will bite my tongue regarding her listed priorities and just say that for every Becky Cassilly out there, there are probably 50 people like me, who sincerely appreciate teachers who care enough about the success of their students to post assignments that are to be completed during snow days. I sincerely hope that Becky’s student keeps up the good work. Roger Leek Mechanicsville

Invitation to learn about Tea Party I read about a high school football stadium in Texas that cost $60,000,000 to build! I cannot imagine what possessed the local elected officials to authorize such a boondoggle

and yet the interim superintendent of schools was still defending it. I doubt the local officials in Hanover County would approve such a thing but I will say this: One of the reasons why we will not have such a thing in Hanover is the Tea Party organizations — the Mechanicsville Tea Party and the Patrick Henry Tea Party are the two best examples. (There also is a King William Tea Party.) I am convinced the Tea Party organizations have made the local officials more accountable and effective. They might not — probably do not like — the signs all over the place but it is a good deterrent to boondoggles in Hanover. The Tea Parties need your help — need new members! see LETTERS, pg. 19

Public Utilities director Steve Herzog presented the only bad news associated with this year’s document, a slight increase in water and sewer fees for Hanover County residents.

County Attorney Sterling Herzog said the costs with few years.

BUDGET

Rives indicated that a complicated permitting system also was a factor in the county’s decision to partner with Richmond to meet its water needs. Regarding the rate hike, Herzog said the figures are reviewed annually and predict revenue needs for the department. “Our goal is have regular rate adjustments that do not create shock among customers,� he said. He proposed a 4 percent increase in water and a 1 percent increase in sewage, an average of about $15 a month for most residential customers. He suggested a 2.5 percent increase in capacity fees for water and sewer. “They are adjusted for changes in construction costs,� Herzog said. Last year’s costs increased more than the projection, requiring the adjustment upward in the capacity rates. Herzog said capacity needs have increased with the revised Comprehensive Plan, which

expands areas of development. “We keep on trying to stimulate economic development, and capacity costs are a big concern for developers. I want to make sure we are not pricing ourselves out of the market,� Hazzard commented. He indicated increases in water and sewer rates as well as capacity rates in back to back years might send the wrong message to developers. Herzog said wasn’t aware of a single applicant citing capacity costs as a reason for not locating in Hanover County. Future financial challenges include Chesapeake Bay TDML regulations, City of Richmond joint capital improvements at a cost of approximately $23 million over the next five years. And decreasing water uses, and expanding the water sewer to un-served areas in SSA is a fiscal challenge. “These projects are expensive.� A public hearing on the proposed 2015 budget is scheduled for March 26, 7 p.m. at the Administration Building.

Why open myself up for ridicule from anonymous bullies? Even in less veiled environments, where comments are tied to an e-mail address or Facebook profile, people seem

to follow a very different set of rules than they would face to face. Some users are quick to lash out at others, especially strangers, attacking their intelligence, looks, grammar, syntax and profile pictures without a moment’s hesitation. Cruelty, it seems, is far more accepted in the online world. Once a photo’s on the Internet, it’s almost impossible to get it off. Same goes for comments, blog entries and other commentary, which are being constantly indexed and backed up. Curt comments issued from the safety of the electronic realm still hit their marks, which are real people with real feelings. The wounds hurt and the scars stay.

He is a sixth grade student at Chickahominy Middle School and had cancer when he was 5 years old. He had leukemia and underwent chemotherapy for almost four years.

I hated having cancer but I love being cancer-free.” In honor of his friends and his aunt, Michele, who is battling cancer, is he going to shave his head as a fundraiser for cancer research. Mark’s goal is $500.

Global Youth Service Day Kick-Off Party set Saturday All Hanover County youth are invited to attend the Global Youth Service Day (GYSD) Kick-Off Party, which will be held from 11 a.m. to 1p.m. on Saturday, March 15, at the Randolph-Macon College Brock Fitness Center located at 202 Henry St. in Ashland. The purpose of the Kick-Off Party is to introduce young people and their families to service opportunities and encourage them to register for a GYSD project. In addition to meeting service project hosts and youth-serving organizations, participants can enjoy music, free food, games, activities and volunteer for onsite mini-service projects. Bennett Pienkowski, a sophomore at Patrick-Henry High School who participates in GYSD activities, said, “Service is one of the greatest ways for people to improve the world and find personal gratification. GYSD gives youth a chance to discover and understand these boons early in life. What better way to ensure a bright future than to instill up and

coming generations with the drive to help better their communities and enrich the lives around them.” GYSD is a world-wide event that mobilizes millions of children in more than 100 countries to serve their community over GYSD weekend on April 11-13. This is Hanover’s seventh year celebrating GYSD. The event is coordinated by the Hanover County Department of Community Resources and the GYSD Youth Planning Coalition and would not be possible without the support of its national and local sponsors: Youth Service America, State Farm, Randolph-Macon College, Mexico Restaurant and Brookwoods Golf Club. For more information, contact Laura Robertson, youth services specialist with the Hanover County Department of Community Resources, at larobertson@hanovercounty.gov or 804-365-4180.

CRUELTY Continued from pg. 17 

You wouldn’t call a stranger and harshly ridicule him over an innocent typo. You wouldn’t approach artists at a gallery and tell them their work is trash.

The Internet is a land of vast opportunity, for good and for ill. Wouldn’t it be a better place if more people chose to apply the same rules of decorum, politeness and consideration for others’ feelings society adheres to “in real life”?

The surface runoff is proposed to be directed into a surface storm water pond that recent research indicates is not the most effective way of treating surface runoff. Further, this proposed pond is to be built in (and destroy) an existing wetland. This wetland area is a very effective natural filter and flooding buffer for a large portion (almost one-half) of the watershed that drains to the Thomas property, the big pond. A second area of wetlands that will be filled by proposed roads and houses currently filters another one-fourth of the

36 YEARS

watershed. This development will be destroying all of the wetlands on the property; wetlands that serve as an effective water quality and flooding buffer for the Thomas property and Bell Creek Road. This is not speculation or fear mongering: The Environmental Protection Agency’s report “wetlands- status and trends” states negative impacts of wetland loss are “The increase in flood damages, drought damages, and the declining bird populations are, in part, the result of wetlands degradation and destruction.” Mitigating these wetland losses by protecting or creating wet-

lands somewhere else in the commonwealth does nothing to serve our community. Second — Groundwater: Residents of Meadowgate receive their water from groundwater wells. This development will potentially have an impact on the quality and volume of water in these wells. I don’t know how to address the volume of water but know from experience any construction that changes water flow can impact well water. I am requesting research be done to determine the impact of this development — during construction as well as long see LETTERS, pg. 21

captives in our homes during high traffic times and special events such as Christmas shopping, race day or the Hanover Tomato Festival. Increased traffic at the Bell Creek and Pole Green Road intersections leads into my other concern, the environmental impact. I am concerned about the potential impacts to surface and ground water from this development. First — the surface water: This project will generate a significant increase in storm water runoff that will carry metals from brake pad and tire dust, hydrocarbons and other pollutants associated with cars and the urban landscape.

“Peel Off Unwanted Fat, And Increase Your Energy, While Building Firm Muscle With Our Doctor Supervised Weight Loss Plan!”

BEFORE A SIGN-- that it was time for me to do something for me. We go through our day to day lives working – helping – doing for others not because we have to, but because we choose to. But somewhere along the way we lose sight of what is important and needed for us. Looking back at pictures, I started to realize why I felt the way I did. Tired all the time; my back, hips and knees seemed to hurt constantly. Didn’t have the energy to go to the gym where I paid a monthly membership. No wonder my blood pressure---cholesterol--sugar levels were all elevated as a result of very little exercise and a fast food life style. It’s all just part of what and who I had become over the years. Each doctor visit ended with my goal to do better and bring all my elevated health levels down before the next visit with diet and exercise and meds. Didn’t happen! My doctor finally gave me the ultimate challenge. Get my A1-C sugar levels down before my next three month visit or I was going to have to start on Insulin. I had been putting this off for over a year. I told her I was not going to take shots to control my diabetes and she told me

knowledgeable, and super friendly staff I have GAINED a new sense of direction and I’m learning to take back control of my life. I have lost just over 50 pounds between October and February. Following the Skinny Up Protocol, the holidays came and went and so did the pounds! I have reduced overall body fat, and years of belly fat, which had contributed to the metabolic symptoms I experienced. My doctor has taken me off of all my diabetic and cholesterol medicine. She actually stated that my cholesterol was better than hers. Yeah me!!! I no longer experience daily joint, back and sciatic pain. I am now able to walk for several miles at a time. With all this new found energy and determination my new goal is to participate in the Ukrops 10-K and to actually if I didn’t show her some type of im- start going to the fitness club where I have had a membership.

Last year’s production, “Saga of a People,” was a collaborative work that combined music and narrative. This year’s show will focus on a varied musical program that includes a number of diverse genres. Dr. Willis L. Barnett leads the VCC Chamber Singers. In April, 2013, Dr. Barnett, who has composed numerous works on African-American themes for the Baltimore and Richmond Symphonies, as well as other ensembles, debuted his “Emancipation Overture” to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation. The piece incorporated text from the Proclamation, as well as Aaron Copland’s “A Lincoln Portrait,” along with with orchestral music and song. The VUU Chamber Singers The Glee Club at Union was formed in 1921 by Professor Harold D. Martin and was the precursor to today’s 60-voice Chamber Singers. The music program quickly grew, establishing a strong cho-

ral tradition. By the1950s, the Chamber Singers were singing in venues all over the United States. In 1958, their groundbreaking performance in New York’s Radio City Music Hall brought standing ovations from the audience of 7,000 people. In the ensuing years, the Chamber Singers have maintained their high level of performance and popularity in Central Virginia and throughout the United States. Over the years Dr. Odell Hobbs, who led the Singers throughout the 1960s through the 1980s, established the group’s reputation around Richmond, with performances at the Virginia Museum, the Mosque (now the Landmark Theatre) and other local venues. Renowned opera singer Muriel Smith also was involved as a vocal coach and participant during this period. Today they are led by Barnett, chairman of VUU’s Music Department, and Charmaine S. McGilvary. The Chamber Singers’ large repertory of music, ranging from see VUU, pg. 26

R-MC men take early exit in NCAA tourney By Jordan Bondurant Richmond Times-Dispatch The Randolph-Macon College men’s basketball team couldn’t get the shots it needed to fall as the Yellow Jackets fell to DeSales 76-70 in overtime in the first round of the NCAA Division III tournament Friday night. R-MC shot 35 percent from the field and 26 percent from 3-point range. “Any time you lose, it hurts,” R-MC coach Nathan Davis said. “It’s a lot of ways devastating, but you have to give DeSales all the credit in the world. They stayed with it when they could have fallen apart, and they made just enough plays in the stretch of the second half and overtime to get the job done.” “I’m really proud of our players and the plays that we made,” DeSales coach Scott Coval said. “We thought that if we could keep the game close in the first half and then get it to the second half where the game was close, that we’d have a good shot. And that’s what happened. But you have to give RandolphMacon a lot of credit. They’re a really good team.” The Yellow Jackets led for most of the game despite the cold shooting. But with 11:21 left in regulation, DeSales grabbed a one-point advantage on a Mike Coleman 3-pointer. The Bulldogs built a lead as

large as eight points and were up by five with a minute left. But after two Trent Walker free throws and a missed Coleman 3-point attempt, Randolph-Macon had one shot to force overtime. After a timeout, Andre Simon found Chris Hamilton for an off-balance 3-pointer that didn’t even ripple the net to tie the score and send the

Crenshaw Gym crowd into a frenzy. “It’s something we’ve been running,” Davis said. “We started running it when I was at Bucknell. You see it all the time. Chris just made a hell of a shot.” “We switched out and did what we were supposed to do,” Coval said. “He just made a great shot.”

But in overtime, RandolphMacon’s shooting remained cold despite the energized home crowd. Coleman and Kyle Hash made 9 of 10 free throws to put away the game. “All year, we’ve shot pretty well from the free throw line,” said Coleman, whose team made 25 of 28 for the game. “Especially close in the last two or three minutes.”

Hamilton and Connor Sullivan each scored 13 points to lead Randolph-Macon. Coleman scored a game-high 29 points, and Hash added 26 for DeSales. In the early game, Mary Washington knocked off Springfield 78-58 for the Eagles’ first NCAA tournament win in see EXIT, pg. 35 

It wasn’t a sellout by any stretch of the imagination, but plenty of fans made the 40-minute trip from Fredericksburg to watch University of Mary Washington defeat DeSales 77-49 in the second round of the NCAA Division III men’s basketball tournament on Saturday night at Randolph-Macon College. Mary Washington advances to the Sweet 16 for the first time in school history and will play Virginia Wesleyan, the Old Dominion Athletic Conference champion, on Friday at a site and time to be determined. “I’m living vicariously through these guys,” Mary Washington coach Rod Wood said. “And they’re see UWM, pg. 35 


Cold shooting spoils R-MC women’s tourney run By Dave Lawrence dlawrence@mechlocal.com Randolph-Macon went to New Jersey and caught a cold. Outshot from the floor and from the foul line by Messiah College, the Yellow Jackets fell 91-62 in an NCAA Division III women’s basketball tournament first-round game at FairleighDickson University-Florham in Madison, N.J. The statistics explain it all. Messiah shot 48 percent from the floor. RandolphMacon shot a little less than 32 percent. They both had 60 field goal attempts. Messiah shot 53 percent from 3-point range. RandolphMacon shot 33 percent. Messiah had 17 3-point attempts while Randolph-Macon had 18. Messiah shot 83 percent from the foul line. Randolph-Macon shot 62 percent. They both had 29 free throw attempts. “We just never … never really got on track. Messiah really came out and totally dominated,” said Yellow Jackets’ head women’s basketball coach Carroll LaHaye. “We were getting the shots that we wanted off of our offense and ones that we’ve relied on throughout the season – but just not falling for us.” The Falcons (21-7) jumped

And I enjoy that they’re taking me along for this fun ride, and they’re doing the things that I like to see and like to coach.” The game featured two head coaches with ties to the area. Wood played at RandolphMacon from 1981-85, and

out to a 22-5 lead in the first seven minutes of the game. Randolph-Macon could not catch up afterward. “I think that was a big factor, especially with our young kids,” LaHaye said. “I think playing such a dominating team as Messiah, they just thought, ‘There is no way that we could come back.’ ” Randolph-Macon (23-6) was led by Taylor Huber with 16 points. Katie Anderson scored 13 points and seven rebounds. Hannah Livermon scored 10 points and Lauren Vugteveen led the Yellow Jackets with eight rebounds. Messiah was led by Chelsea Daniel with 18 points. Four other Falcons scored in double figures: Gillian Glackin with 16 points, Katelyn Vanderhoff with 14 points, Sienna Wisse with 13 points and Taylor Miller with 12.

DeSales coach Scott Coval played at William and Mary from 1982-86. The Bulldogs struggled shooting the ball, going 5 of 25 from the field in the first half and 15 of 54 (28 percent) for the game. They were led by Mike Coleman’s 13 points. Mary Washington utilized its 3-point shooting to go on an 8-0 run with treys from Dom Morra and Bradley Riester (Monacan), taking a 16-8 advantage midway through the first half.

Riester hit four 3-pointers and scored with 19 points. He also grabbed a co-teamhigh eight rebounds. “Everything from here on out is just a bonus,” Riester said. “We’re really happy with our season, and it’s great to see all our hard work pay off.” Mary Washington’s barrage continued in the second half as DeSales found itself merely playing for pride. The Eagles led by as many as 38 points. Taylor Johnson led Mary Washington with 22 points and

Randolph-Macon lacrosse stifles Susquehanna By Dave Lawrence dlawrence@mechlocal.com Randolph-Macon started slow, but the Yellow Jackets’ men’s lacrosse team picked up steam as they held Susquehanna scoreless in the third quarter to claim a 13-8 victory over the visiting Crusaders at Day Field Saturday. Susquehanna took an early lead, 2-1 after the first quarter, but the Yellow Jackets held on the ball throughout most of the second and third quarters and built up a 9-5 lead through the third quarter. Jason Andrews led Randolph-Macon (3-3) with seven goals. “We just moved the ball really well, had some kids step up,” the senior midfielder said. “Our attacks stepped up. Our midis did their job and moved the ball up top and dodged hard over to the cage.” Keeping the Crusaders (2-3) out of Randolph-Macon’s net in the third quarter was key. “Our third quarters have been iffy all year,” Andrews said. “When we have that lead, we

Oak Knoll overcame a 16point third-quarter deficit to win the middle school basketball championship in January with a 48-46 victory over John Rolfe at Varina High School. Hot shooting gave John Rolfe an early lead and a strong defense helped the Indians extend throughout the first half. They led 40-24 late in the third quarter when Oak Knoll coach

Kelly Madison called a timeout to rally the Knights. The timeout worked. Oak Knoll began to chip into John Rolfe’s lead and overtook the Indians 47-46 with 11 seconds remaining in the game. Michael Chin converted a free throw to make it 48-46. A desperation John Rolfe jump shot missed to give the Knights the championship. Oak Knoll (10-1) was led by Jack Chenault with 23 points and Nick Zona with 14.

Hanover Hawkeye Wrestling makes its mark By Dave Lawrence dlawrence@mechlocal.com When Hanover High School won the Virginia High School League Group 4A wrestling title in Salem last month, a bunch of kids – and a few adults, too – working in a building in the Hanover County Industrial Airpark had cause to celebrate. The founders, staff, and members of the Hanover Hawkeye Youth Wrestling Club

could see the club’s fingerprints on the Hawks’ state title. Four of the school’s finalists – including both of its individual champions, J.D. Gregory and Corbin Allen; and both runners-up, Gray Hart and T.J. Allen – are members. The club began at Oak Knoll Middle School in 2009 with five kids, most of them sons of the three founders: Chad Harris, Dave Epperly and Robert Buchanan. By the end of that

year, it had 30 kids, and began the following year with 50. The club quickly outgrew Oak Knoll. Soon they decided to seek a permanent space, and found it in what had been a mechanics’ shop at the airpark. They had a lot of cleaning to do. Now, the floor space is almost entirely occupied by wrestling mats and the walls by pads – a good thing, because on any give weekday evening the place is full of young grapplers trying to best each other. Most of the clientele are middle school aged – which was the original intent of the founders. But the club has quite a few high school aged members now, in addition to some from area schools who drop in to work in the off-season or when other circumstances, such as weather-related school closings, prevent them from practicing at school. Corbin Allen, a 152-pounder, said he began working with Hanover Hawkeye Wrestling when he was in seventh grade at Oak Knoll. He was already a promising wrestler, and wanted to help share his experience with younger kids. “You just always try to give back to the youth,” he said. “I was still young back in seventh grade, but most of these kids were even smaller and still looked up to me, so it was kind of the right thing to come back in here and help out as much as I can.” He said the club has helped him out quite a bit as well. “Not only do they have a room open for workouts, when it’s inclement weather or during the summer,” he said. “Just being able to come in here and get that extra couple of drills, it really helps you evolve a lot. The coaches in here are great.” This year, the club had grown enough to afford hiring a coach – Darius Little, a former

wrestler at North Carolina State University. Little said the job “just fell upon me.” “I wanted to go into coach-

ing, but I also thought about going back to grad school. I looked at VCU, but it was a little bit too expensive for me,” Little said. “I thought this was a good

opportunity, not only to stay here for a year and get in-state tuition, but also to meet some great people and to start my coaching career.” Hart, who finished second in the 106-pound class at the state meet, credits the club with helping him improve. “Coach Harris and Darius Little, they’ve helped me succeed and get a lot better over the summer,” Hart said. “I feel like [the club] helps you get a lot better. I’m fortunate to have it. I’ll hopefully get back next year and win that state title.”

Fencing academy teaches serious swordplay By Dave Lawrence dlawrence@mechlocal.com When most people in Hanover County talk about fencing, they are talking about bits of white wood or other materials put around field to give deer something to jump over. But in an out-of-the way industrial park in the Village of Mechanicsville, fencing means something very, very different – swordplay. The Mechanicsville Fencing Academy is no run-of-the mill club for geeks living out some light-sabre fantasy. The facility, run by coach Bobby Robinson, boasts of two of the top youth fencers in the nation, one in the world. Fifteen-year old Stephani Deschner, from Mechanicsville, was recently named to Team USA’s Cadet World Championships team after a fifth-place finish in the Cadet (under-17) women’s foil in the Junior Olympics Championships in Portland, Ore., last month. Another academy member, Rhiannon Harvey, 17, of Virginia Beach, also competed in the Junior Olympics. Deschner has been fencing for four years, and hopes to eventually represent the United States in the Olympics. She has the potential to do so, having won a gold medal in the foil – a type of sword with a narrow, pointed blade – at the Tauberbischofsheim Foil Cadet European Cup in Germany in November. “I started when I was 9years-old,” Deschner said. “My friend actually saw it on a TV show and she tried it, and she thought it was really, really, really cool. And she convinced me to try it and I absolutely fell in love with it. I could not put a

blade down.” One of the things she likes about fencing is the way it calls upon both brawn and brains. “It is a sport that is hard physically and mentally,” Deschner said “I love how you have to think through each action. You cannot do the same thing. You have to learn different actions, do different things. You can always get better. You never peak – there’s always something to learn.” Harvey has only been competitively fencing for 18 months.

She had been a gymnast, but a number of injuries forced her to find something different. Her parents suggested fencing, and she embraced it. “It’s very unique,” Harvey said of fencing. “You can walk around a fencing tournament and watch 100 different bouts and no bout is exactly the same. And even [repeated bouts] between two people [are] not the same. There’s just so many different factors that come into play, and I find that really interesting.”

Both teenagers would be in high school – Deschner would be at Lee-Davis – but their intense travel schedule requires homeschooling. Harvey is not looking at colleges, preferably ones with a fencing team to continue her career. Even though their choice of sport requires a lot of sacrifices, they both have fun. It is a lot like being in those old swashbuckling movies. “When I was younger, I used to watch movies like Zorro and The Three Musketeers, and

it’s always fascinating to me,” Deschner said. “I loved it. I would run around at home with a stick with my dad and start

fencing with him. It was fun. And when I started fencing, it was the only sport that really clicked with me.”

as Charlotte Torrence used a chicken-shaped egg cooker to make fresh Eggs Benedict alongside Kara Lloyd, who was making Belgian Waffles. Their group was raising money for Wings of Hope. As she cooked eggs for the long line of attendees, Torrence said she had chosen her dish easily. “It was just something I wanted to make,” she said. An American Summer Picnic table from Atlee High School offered strawberry smoothies, tea, vegetarian and meaty stuffed zucchini and apple pie bites on a table covered with a red checkered tablecloth. Gabi Hodges, a junior who made stuffed zucchini with her friends Drashthy Mody and Olivia Boothe, said she likes the challenge of cooking. “I only recently got into

Over at the Hanover High School table, which team members dubbed “Wonderland,” students offered up dishes based around fantasy themes, including Ariel’s Shrimp Scampi, Elsa’s Snow Cream and Neverland Dirt, a confection offered up by Ryan Kellner, who was dressed as Peter Pan and very in character. In fact, when first asked his name, he had to be coaxed to respond with anything other than “Peter Pan!” “Would you like some Neverland Dirt?” Kellner asked skeptical diners with an exuberant twinkle in his eye. “No one can resist Neverland Dirt!” Hanover High students were raising money for the

Club at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, March 18, at the Calabash Seafood Restaurant in Mechanicsville. For moreinformation about the meeting, or becoming a meeting of the HRWC, contact Lynn Hamilton, president, at lynn.hamilton@hrwomen.com or visit the website at www. hrwomen.com.

An arrest has been made by the Hanover County fire marshal but the identity of the suspect in a Saturday night arson had not been officially released as of Monday. Battalion Chief and public information officer Jason Williams said units responded at 9:23 p.m. to the 6900 block of Brooking Way in Mechanicsville. The house was a total loss. While already having been ruled as arson, he did say the investigation into the fire continues. Williams also said no one was home when firefighters arrived on the scene. The fire was brought under control in about 45 minutes. It was “heavily involved,” Williams said, when crews arrived. “[They] went into the defensive mode of operation based on fire conditions when they pulled up,” he added. No injuries were reported.

Hanover High School’s Wonderland table featured fantasy characters from around the world. Shown are, from left, Jada Jordan, Divya Patel, Savannah Ward and Ryan “Peter Pan” Kellner. Kellner was so in character that he was hesitant to provide his real name.

Heather James Transfer Fund, which benefits a Hanover High grad who suffers from cystic fibrosis and needs lung and

liver transplants. Tables full of mostly LeeDavis students and parents munched happily on the odd

assortment of food. Many said they were trying things they’d never had before. “I’ve never had a Belgian

Waffle,” student Sloan Miller said, grinning. “I’ve just had Eggos before.” She reported that she was a fan of the sweet treat. Her friend Erin Dickson said she was particularly partial to a beef soup from Lee-Davis High School. According to Lesa Berlinghoff, the Lee-Davis IB teacher who coordinated the event, the students raised $1,056, which will be split among the schools’ respective charities. Lee-Davis High School took top honors in all categories of the competition, Berlinghoff reported, admitting that there was probably a bit of home field advantage at play. Hanover High was a close second in the theme category, she noted. “It was exciting to see so many families come out to support the event,” Berlinghoff said.
