Tuition policy at issue with out of county students By Jim Ridolphi for The Mechanicsville Local ASHLAND— Two students recently were removed from Hanover County Public Schools for violating the system’s policy on out of county attendance

and tuition costs associated with those students. And, they may be only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to out of county students attending Hanover schools at taxpayers’ expense. The two students in this

case attended Hanover schools since 2007 while their parents allegedly lived in King William County. It appears that Hanover County Public Schools has a see TUITION, pg. 28

Hanover jury convicts Henrico man in 2004 shooting death HANOVER — After nearly 10 years, a homicide that took place in the early hours of Aug. 14, 2004, in Mechanicsville closed last week with the conviction of a Henrico County man. Thursday night, a Hanover County jury deliberated about 10 minutes to determine that Devion Maurice Gentry, formerly of Tumbleweed Circle, should serve 43 years in prison for the shooting death of Russell D. Franklin, 27, of Mechanicsville. A single gunshot wound to the chest claimed Franklin’s life.

The jury recommended 40 years for second-degree murder and three on a weapons conviction. Gentry will be formally sentenced in July. He has a lengthy criminal record and was returned to Virginia from a federal prison in West Virginia. FRANKLIN Franklin’s body was found in the driver’s seat of his still running 1995 light blue Cadillac on Old Hickory Drive. The car

had run off the road and hit a privacy fence in a parking lot. There were no witnesses to the killing and little physical evidence at the site of his death. Franklin was a Maryland native who had come to Mechanicsville with his employment. The Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office continued to actively investigate the crime throughout the years. In the March 17, 2010, edition, The Mechanicsville Local, working with investigators in the Sheriff ’s Office, launched

HANOVER -- Every year, April 1 through June 30, it is unlawful for dogs anywhere in Hanover County to be running off their property without being leashed. The county’s “leash law” applies throughout the year in the suburban area. Between April 1 and June 30, it is extended to the rural areas as well because the births of vulnerable livestock, such as baby lambs

and calves, tend to take place during this period. Wildlife activity and rabies cases also generally increase in the April 1 to June 30 time frame. Any dogs caught running off their owner’s property will be impounded. Impoundment fees are $25 for the first violation and an additional $10 for each subsequent violation within a 12-month period, including a $5 per day boarding fee.

Violations also can result in uniform summons or a written warning being issued. Each instance of a dog belonging to a particular owner running at-large is a separate violation, and an additional penalty will apply regardless of whether or not the same dog is involved. If you see a dog running at large, call Hanover County Emergency Communications at 804-365-6140. Any dangerous ani-

mal can be reported by dialing 911 for immediate assistance, 24/7. For more information about Hanover County’s running atlarge laws, call Animal Control at 804-365-6485. Dogs cannot run off of their owner’s property at any time of year without a current county license tag affixed to their collar. Information submitted by Tom Harris, Hanover County public information officer.

Conservation and Recreation. Previously, he worked as a financial and accounting manager for the Department of Education, owned Parts Supply Inc. in Mechanicsville and Henrico, and was Director of Planning and Community Development in Hanover and New Kent counties. Millican, a 41-year resident of Mechanicsville, has a long

list history of community and church involvement in the Mechanicsville District, and was recognized as one of the leaders on the Hanover School Board. Millican is credited with establishing methods to quantify and enhance student performance, identifying students who to are excelling and those who need assistance; an inclusion program for special

needs children; preserving the JROTC program at Lee-Davis High School; and numerous improvements in financial operations. As a solid conservative financial voice on the School Board who opposed bond debt, Millican said, “We also need to make sure that Hanover’s fiscal future is secure, and not drowning in debt.”

federal lawmakers have sponsored policies making it harder to create jobs. In the alternative, the General Assembly passed legislation making it easier for small businesses to find the funding to start and grow. Peace serves on the Appropriations Committee, which solved last year’s $2.4 bil-

lion shortfall crisis without raising taxes or expanding federal entitlements like ObamaCare in Virginia. Virginia now spends $1billion less in general fund dollars than in last year’s original budget. Peace continued, “I work every day to find solutions for hard working families. While challenges exist, I believe that there are no problems that we

cannot solve together as a community. When we decide that America remains the greatest country in the world and commit to stop running it down with our words, we will realize even greater opportunities. When we reject the divisive tone of our politic, we will achieve great things for our community. Working together, we will improve how government serves its people.”

OPINION | The Local Views

World Book Day By Roslyn Ryan Richmond Suburban News

I

f it isn’t exactly ironic, it’s at least amusing that World Book Day — which was observed on Friday, April 17 — fell on the same day as the 10th anniversary of the first-ever YouTube video posting. I’m fairly certain that, had YouTube existed when I was a child, I would not have read nearly as much. Fortunately for me, video-sharing sites — and the Internet, for that matter — were years from being invented when I was a child, so there was very little to compete with the stubby little paperback my father handed me one early summer morning shortly after school had let out for the year. I was about 10 and had never read anything much longer than your average children’s book, but, after just a chapter or two, I had been pulled into the embrace of this new book, this window into a time and place so far removed from my own. That book, “To Kill a Mockingbird,” by Harper Lee, would gently change me from a child who grudgingly read only when it was assigned as homework to one who could lose herself for hours between the two covers of a novel. And if I have not yet managed to get around to digesting the most

celebrated works in the Western literary canon (no James Joyce or Dostoyevsky for me, thus far), I doubt I have enjoyed myself any less. Make no mistake about it, children still read these days. The success of the Harry Potter franchise proved that kids are more than happy and willing to embrace literature and to fall in love with the characters and places they find on the printed page. But as the digital world continues to come up with more and more diversions — online games! Photo sharing apps! Face Time! — there does exist the fear that both attention spans and young readership will continue to dwindle. Gone will be the days of entertainment that doesn’t require batteries, or magical journeys taken through the pages of a dog-eared paperback. In honor of World Book Day, let’s do what we can to encourage our young people to read, to love books, and to find in them the comfort and delight so many of us did when we were growing up. It may be tough to compete with a video of a cat playing the piano, or whatever else happens to be trending on YouTube at any given moment, but we owe it to our children to try.

Vacationing at home in Richmond By Drew Jacson Richmond Suburban News A single city can be a million different places to a million different people. Ours is the river city, but it’s also one of parks and fields. It is one steeped in history, yet also at the forefront of art, food and innovation. Richmond is a city ideal for dogs and filled with squirrels, it is a capital for beer and known for basketball. With so many different people sharing such a small space, the combination of what Richmond is and what Richmond can be appears endless — though the skiing isn’t very good. No, it’s not a skiing town. So far, spring has been a time for visitors, friends stopping in for the weekend now, so as to avoid the relentless cruelty known as Richmond heat in July. When friends are in town, despite sleeping in my own bed, performing my same routines, it feels like I’m on a vacation in my own city. It can sometimes feel like our city is only as good as our friends think it is based on a whirlwind two-day visit.

It’s more than just hoping our friends have a good time, it’s a test for the city we love — or worse, validation. Cities can struggle to shake their reputation. In many ways, we find the cities the guide books tell us to find when we don’t know how to find our own. But in my relatively recent experience, Seattle was 10 days in paradise and Charleston, South Carolina, was a land dripping with clouds. It’s exciting when the glossy magazines swoon over Richmond, but I always feel a little guilty, as if we only wanted to dance with the girl at the ball once her dance card filled up. The Richmond my visitors see turns out to be not unlike a condensed version of my own greatest hits, no matter how recently I’ve done the turn myself. I moved to a neighborhood famous for its sandwich shop and have only had those sandwiches when parents or friends stop by. Then there’s a drive down a street of the finest porches in the South, maybe a stop by the dog park or a stroll through a shopping district. The concern of hoping visitors see what we see in the city see VACATIONING, pg. 7

The Hanover Habitat ReStore, a nonprofit furniture and appliance store, originally opened in 2005 and was located at 8177 Mechanicsville Turnpike, Mechanicsville, Va; it is now located at 9159 Atlee Road, Mechanicsville, Va in the Atlee Square Shopping Center. The ReStore helps provide funding for Hanover Habitat’s mission to build safe, decent and affordable housing in Hanover County. The store raises funds by selling donated new and used appliances, furniture, cabinets, building materials and household goods to the general public. Hanover Habitat for Humanity has been experiencing growth for the past nine years, but when Holzbach got a call from a donor saying that over the next three years they were going to provide Hanover

previously located. Once all the details were final, Hanover Habitat for Humanity had ten days to move out of the old space and into the new one. “During those ten days we had 182 community volunteers step forward and help, representing over 12 different organizations, 10 of them were businesses, 2 of them were faith-based organizations and countless individuals stepped up and that’s the only way we did it,� Holzbach said. Location was also a key

motivator in the move to the new space in Atlee Square Shopping Center. “The last store we had was referred to in retail as a destination,� executive director of Hanover Habitat for Humanity, Tim Bowring said. “We literally had people call us, ask for directions and then call us 20 minutes later and say ‘where are you?’ So this is a fabulous opportunity to allow people who don’t know about us to find out about us, and to have people be able to see HABITAT pg. 18

In addition to studying about the important role of trees in the ecosystem with innovative lesson plans that support learning standards in math, science and other subjects, each participating student received a redbud tree seedling to plant for Arbor Day (April 24).

MECHANICSVILLE -Construction on the bridge that crosses the Chickahominy River at the Hanover/Henrico county line was successfully completed one day ahead of schedule on Monday, April 27. In July 2013, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) received a contract to replace three bridges in Henrico County and one in Hanover County over the Chickahominy River on Mechanicsville Turnpike, or U.S. 360. All four bridges were under one contract and were replaced at the same time, but in different stages. “The bridges were in a state of needing to be replaced due to their age,” construction project manager Keith Rider

A Division of Presidential Bank, FSB

said. “They were built originally in the ‘40s and then they were widened in the early ‘60s and they were just to a point where they had to be replaced due to structural integrity. Not that they were going to fall down or anything, it was just to a point where they had to be replaced.” The team experienced some minor setbacks due to inclement weather over the past two years, but was still able to keep construction on schedule. Had VDOT not tackled the issue of the aging bridges when it did, the result may have been a weight restriction for the bridge, meaning large trucks and overweight vehicles would not have been able to use the bridges to travel between the counties. “If the bridges got to a point

kindergarten when she started testing the amount of preservatives in fast food as part of a wellness project. She purchased a kid’s meal from four different fast food chains –Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC), Long John Silver’s, Burger King and McDonald’s –with the plan to keep the food items until they began to rot. She eventually threw away two of the meals due to the amount of decomposition, but the remaining two maintained virtually the same appearance as when the day they were purchased, eight years ago. The results from the fast food experiment led Goodpasture to become interested in chickens. In third grade she began working with Perdue Farm chickens as part of a project for Steward School. She then purchased her own chickens, 25 in total, to begin raising and breeding. “Hopefully one day I will be able to create the perfect chicken to sell to fast food restaurants that are free range and full grain maybe,” Goodpasture said. Goodpasture started out with three different chicken breeds – Araucanas, Barred Rock and Rhode Island Reds. She selected these breeds because of their specific traits. Rhode Island Reds and Barred Rock chickens are hearty during the winter and have strong egg shells, while Araucanas have good egg yolks, according to Goodpasture. “I wanted the base to be really hearty so it would serve as a base for the rest of them,” Goodpasture said. “I started there and then whenever they kinda like got the base of them I just started breeding the bigger ones.” She eventually created a new breed, named the “Goodpasture breed,” which ended up yielding a full, hearty bird. Unfortunately, the Goodpasture breed no longer

exists as they, along with a large portion of her other full-grown chickens, were attacked by coyotes. Goodpasture now has 17 birds, 14 of which are baby chick size and three that are about six weeks old. In the future, Goodpasture hopes to run her own corporation similar to Perdue Farms. “I want to run a corporation like Perdue Farms,” she said. “Mr. Perdue has definitely been my mentor throughout this entire process. I just want to run something similar, but locally.” Although Goodpasture’s ambition and curiosity have gotten her this far, The Steward

School has played a key role in her success. Steward School provides students with small classrooms as well as access to the Bryan Innovation Lab, where they can experiment and test their ideas. “They’ve helped me in more ways than I can even imagine,” Goodpasture said. “They’ve definitely seen potential in guiding me towards the right direction and Mrs. Householder definitely saw the potential in biology in me.” The Steward School was recently named a Green Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education. Schools that receive the Green Ribbon des-

ignation are recognized for having curriculum and programs that advance opportunities for students to become problem solvers, innovators and leaders in solving environmental and resource issues. The Steward School was one of six independent schools in the nation to be named a Green Ribbon School.

MECHANICSVILLE — Mechanicsville resident Scott Rohlwing recently opened Richmond Archery Tag, which he said offers a new way to encourage fitness, group dynamics and strategy, as well as entertainment to parties and team building events. Archery Tag® was developed a couple of years ago by bringing the best of several activities together in a fast paced game, according to Rohwing. It combines the skill set of archery, the speed and endurance of dodgeball and the intensity of paintball into one game. Players use patented, foamtipped arrows to “tag” their opponents. Rohwing said his “skilled and trained staff takes the time to make every event stress free and safe as well.” He also said the staff takes participants through some basics to help them through the learning curve “quickly and easily.”

the commission of murder. “The successful prosecution of this 11-year-old cold case shows the commitment of the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office and the Office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney to investigate and prosecute criminal acts regardless of the passage of time or the strength of evidence,” Chalkley said. “In this case, there was no murder weapon recovered, no eye witnesses, no DNA or other

forensic evidence. I prepared the indictments based on my knowledge that the Sheriff ’s Office personnel and my office would continue to investigate and prepare the case for trial as diligently after charges were placed as they had before indictments,” he said. “The results affirm that cases must be tried without regard to certainty of conviction. The citizens of Hanover County and family members of the victim are

as deserving of their day in court as are defendants. My office will continue to try cases without concern to conviction rate. Justice requires this,” he added. “I wish to particularly commend Sgt.

Huffman fans 15 as Cavaliers beat Raiders By Brad Bess Richmond Times-Dispatch MECHANICSVILLE – Kayla Huffman struck out 15 and Essence Jackson homered to cap a five-run fifth inning that propelled No. 5 King William to a 5-3 win over No. 4 Atlee Wednesday. The Raiders handed LeeDavis its first loss of the season Friday, but weren’t able to do the same to the Group 2A Cavaliers, who improved to 80. “This is good for us because getting close to conference play, we need to see good pitching, we need to see good teams like this,” King William coach Barbara Baker said. “I definitely think it’s just going to boost our confidence and help us when we get farther into our season,” Huffman said. Huffman started the second-inning offense with a oneout single. Brittney Branch followed with a bunt single before Shannon Hott blasted an RBI double to right field. Hailey Baldwin and Sierra Healey followed with RBI singles. Baldwin was caught stealing second for the second out, setting up Jackson’s two-run home run over the right-field fence. Jackson said she was initially nervous but calmed before picking up on the outside pitch. “I was like you just made a mis-

take. Just made a mistake. It felt great,” she said. The three runs were the most King William has surrendered this season. Raine Wilson belted a two-run homer to left-center in the bottom of the fourth to cut Atlee’s deficit to three. The Raiders added another run in the bottom of the seventh with Samantha Osterman’s RBI double.

The Mechanicsville Local

May 6, 2015

All three Raiders losses — Hanover, Patrick Henry and King William — were to opponents ranked in the T-D Top 10. Aside from being their eighth consecutive victory, the win had special meaning for the Cavaliers. “We were playing with a little more of a purpose, our right fielder (Hott) lost her aunt

two days ago,” Baker said. “She played with a purpose today and the whole team rallied around her. They played with a lot of emotion.” Aside from the RBI double, the sophomore starting right fielder had an infield single and forced a walk. In spite of an obviously heavy heart, Hott said her performance and the team’s win felt “really good.”

ASHLAND – Randolph-Macon wasted little time finding a successor for departed head men’s basketball coach Nathan Davis. The Yellow Jackets also did not have to look far to find a familiar face for the role, either. Thursday – just four days after announcing the departure of Davis – the school announced that it had hired Salisbury University head coach Josh Merkel, a former assistant of Davis, to replace his exboss. “I am honored and so thrilled to be your next head coach,” Merkel said at a press conference introducing him Monday. “The see COACH, pg. 37

By Dave Lawrence Sports Editor MECHANICSVILLE – Hanover and Atlee reunited for another pitchers’ duel Friday night. The Hawks’ Grey Lyttle, who no-hit the Raiders in an earlier meeting at Hanover this season, went up against Atlee’s Brett Ayer. Lyttle gave up just one hit in seven innings to the homestanding Raiders. Ayer, who pitched the first six innings against the Hawks gave up just three hits before yielding the mound to Justin Bishop in the seventh inning. But one of those hits Ayer gave up had devastating results for the Raiders. Hanover’s Cameron Grimes got around on an Ayer fastball in the third inning, putting it over the fence for the game’s only run and a 1-0 Hawk victory. “Grey was phenomenal,” said Hanover head coach Charlie Dragum. “That was the outing we needed because we were simply not swinging the bats very well. Atlee’s kid threw fantastic – the Ayer kid – and he made us look kind of foolish at times. And then Cam Grimes, the freshman, had a huge hit, a home run.” Lyttle shared Dragum’s assessment. “[Ayer] was throwing a really good game,” Lyttle said. “It was a pitchers’ duel the entire game. … It was Atlee. We both had energy. We both wanted to win for both of our clubs, and [Grimes] stepped up at a huge moment. He’s been doing that all year.” The Ayer pitch Grimes tagged for his home run was not a mistake. “The kid just made contact and hit it out. It was a good hit on him,” said Atlee head coach Roscoe Johnson. “Ayer threw the ball like he’d been throwing

Raiders hammer Alabama By Dave Lawrence Sports Editor

Dave Lawrence/The Local

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – The Richmond Raiders turned themselves around in terms of turnovers this week – and the improvement paid off as they trounced host Alabama 87-58 Saturday night. Richmond quarterback Jonathan Bane completed 31of-43 passes for 361 yards and 10 touchdowns to lead the Raiders (3-4) to victory. With the win, Richmond

earned a regular season sweep of the Hammers (3-3), whom they defeated 60-45 in the Richmond Coliseum on April 4. The two teams spent the first three quarters looking evenly matched, with the score tied five times, the last time 58-58 at the end of the third quarter. But the Raiders scored 29 unanswered points in the fourth quarter – including a final touchdown on a Kevin Allen fumble recovery with 16 seconds left in the game.

Hanover pitcher Grey Lyttle guns down an Atlee batter in the seventh inning of the Hawks’ 1-0 victory over the Raiders Friday. Lyttle held Atlee to just one hit in a complete-game effort.

The kid had a good atbat and sent it over the fence.” The run gave Lyttle a rather thin cushion, but he wasn’t planning on resting on it, anyway. “I approach the game the same way as I do for a 10nothing [lead], tied zero-zero, or down,” Lyttle said. “Throw strikes and my defense makes plays. My defense has made plays all season and all year.” Lyttle relied on his defense to get through the first three innings – Atlee’s only hit, an infield single by Andrew Foster – came in the third. The Hanover pitcher recorded his first two strikeouts in the fourth inning. He got eight more the final three innings for a total of 10, giving up just one base on balls to go with the one hit. Lyttle said the key to holding the Raiders at bay was in

Yellow Jackets fall game short of NCAA tourney Wesleyan in the ODAC tournament last week, will have to wait until Monday to learn if they earn an at-large bid in the NCAA Division III tournament.

By Dave Lawrence Sports Editor ASHLAND – In their final home game of the season, the Randolph-Macon women’s lacrosse team thoroughly dominated Virginia Wesleyan to roll to a 14-3 victory in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference semifinals. The Yellow Jacket (14-4) defense all but strangled the Marlins’ offense, allowing just 12 shots on goal while holding Virginia Wesleyan (10-9) to its lowest point total of the season. Randolph-Macon goalkeeper Allie Walker finished with nine saves. “I think it’s all about keeping your head in the game,” Walker said. “There was a long period when my team was all down on the attacking end. It’s hard to keep your head in the game when you’re not getting shots at you.” In the brief times when the Marlins where on the attack, Walker faced some tough, close shots, but allowed only two goals in the first half – one on a free shot by Carla Williams. Virginia Wesleyan managed just one goal in the second half when Brooke Cabeceiras fed Megan Shallock in a crowd with 17:08 left. Shallock, who got the Marlins’ only other goal at the end of the first half, was Virginia Wesleyan’s only multigoal scorer. The Yellow Jackets had four multi-goal scorers. Alicia Hsieh and Jenelle Whitman had three goals apiece, while Laney Dee and Shannon Jamieson had two goals apiece. Randolph-Macon dominated the Marlins in possession, the key to which was winning the draws. “We spent a lot of time preparing for this game preparing for the draw,” said Randolph-

Macon head coach M.K. Geratowski. “We knew that was going to be the key to the game. If we could win the draw controls and maintain possession we would be fine.” The Yellow Jackets won 11 of 19 draws in the game. Snee won six of those, with Whitman adding three. “We didn’t get as many possessions as we would have liked,” said Virginia Wesleyan head coach Meagan DiCave.

The Yellow Jackets (2410), who cracked the regional rankings for the first time this season at eighth in the Atlantic Region, earned the ODAC’s automatic bid by sweeping their competition to claim the ODAC championship on April 26. The championship was their first ODAC title. “In terms of how exciting it “We didn’t have solid possessions on the attacking end. It comes down to winning the draw and getting solid possessions, and Randolph-Macon did a better job of that today.” Randolph-Macon’s season ended Saturday in Lexington, Virginia, when the secondseeded Yellow Jackets fell to top seed Washington & Lee (15-2) in the ODAC final to get the conference’s automatic bid to the ODAC Division III women’s

They’ve been tons of, you know, attention around campus which makes me the happiest.” The Yellow Jackets began the season somewhat uneven, but are so far on an eight-game

winning streak. “We kind of really started to gel towards the end,” Proffitt said. “They were very focused. They were always focused, but it was something about that [ODAC tournament] weekend. They were just zeroed in.” Dave Lawrence can be reached at dlawrence@mechlocal.com.
