New Ashland District representative on Hanover County School Board

S

OLA HAWKINS

he’s humble, enthusiastic, driven and, most of all, she is committed to the children of Hanover County Public Schools. Ola Hawkins recently was appointed to the Hanover County School Board by Faye O. Prichard, Ashland District representative on the Hanover County Board of Supervisors, to fill the seat previously held by Hank Lowry. This is her first experience in public office.

“I’m honored to be a part of the school board and I will do my very best,” Hawkins said. A former Verizon corporate employee and current instructor in Henrico County Public Schools, Hawkins said she has always had an interest in children “and what our children learn and how we help them to grow.” In deciding to seek the vacant position, Hawkins said she told herself, “You know, I’m interested in children and how children are taught -- not just academics, but also the social

piece. And I thought this would be a good place for my voice, my thoughts and concerns.” When she left the corporate world and focused her attention on public school students, she said, “When I went into the school system and started working with children, I thought this is exactly what I should be doing. So, from that, it was just the interest in children and helping them to gain what they need and to reach their potential -- not somebody else’s but what that child can see SCHOOL, pg. 26 

Drug court slated to begin pilot program early 2017 By Jim Ridolphi for The Mechanicsville Local HANOVER -- Hanover County could become the state’s 27th locality to establish a local drug court designed to target and treat habitual adult offenders. The county established a juvenile drug

court, one of six in the Commonwealth, several years ago, and the results have been encouraging, according to Circuit Court Judge J. Overton Harris. The Hanover judge presented a plan to initiate a pilot juvenile drug court in Hanover to supervisors at their regular meeting on Sept. 28.

Harris said the innovative program is needed to combat increasing drug abuse numbers throughout the nation, and he described as another tool to fight habitual drug abuse. “As you know, drug addiction is a national epidemic. Hanover County is not see PILOT, pg. 7

Check smoke alarms during Fire Prevention Week Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com HANOVER – Every smoke alarm has an expiration date: What’s yours? Battalion Chief Jason Williams said Hanover FireEMS urges all residents to know how old their smoke alarms are, and to replace them every 10 years Does your home have a smoke alarm? According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the answer is likely yes. NFPA research shows that most American homes have at least one. But do you know how old your smoke alarms are? If you’re like most people, you’re probably not so sure.

14 COMMUNITY

A recent survey conducted by NFPA revealed that only a small percentage of people know how old their smoke alarms are, or how often they need to be replaced. That lack of awareness is a concern for Hanover Fire-EMS and NFPA, along with fire departments throughout the country, because smoke alarms don’t last forever. “Time and again, I’ve seen the life-saving impact smoke alarms can have in a home fire, but I’ve also seen the tragedy that can result when smoke alarms aren’t working properly,” Chief Jethro Piland of Hanover Fire-EMS said. “That’s why we’re making a concertsee FIRE, pg. 8

Local builder teams with nonprofit group ‘Homes for Our Troops’ By Jim Ridolphi for The Mechanicsville Local

M

ECHANICSVILLE -- A local builder’s efforts are bringing more than just smiles to the family of a local disabled Iraq War veteran. Todd Rogers and R-CI Builders teamed up with nonprofit veterans support group Homes for Our Troops and is beginning construction on a new home for Sgt. J.P. McGuire on a lot just off New Ashcake Road in Hanover County. HFOT is a national organization that builds mortgage-free homes for severely injured veterans, and has built 222 homes since it was founded in 2004. Last week, R-CI officials, McGuire and his wife Brittany and their two children, Trace and Aubrie, assembled on the site of their new home for a groundbreaking ceremony. Rogers, president of R-CI Builders, is no stranger to community-based charitable projects, but being a part of this one was something that inspired the Hanover businessman from the minute he heard about it. It all began when Rogers learned about the project through the Homebuilders Association that was advertising for builders interested in constructing homes for returning disabled veterans. “Immediately, we responded, especially since this veteran was right here in our own backyard,” Rogers said. HFOT named R-CI as the official builder for the project, and the process began about a year ago. After HFOT located and purchased a lot, Rogers and his staff began planning for the project. And there’s a lot to consider, like specialized plans for the totally handicapped-accessible home and special VA inspections to ensure the home meets requirements. “It’s something different from what we normally build,” Rogers said. “They design these projects all over the country.” The project that Rogers first envisioned has expanded to include neighbors, contractors and members of the Hanover community. “We did this because we are thankful for the service of our troops. The community support and support of our R-CI vendors has been off the charts,” Rogers said. Many have contributed services or materi-

als for the project, and HFOT also has provided supplies from its national vendors. Rogers’ firm is tasked with putting together all those pieces that will eventually result in a 3,700-square-foot single story home that will allow a new sense of freedom for its recipient, Sgt. James “JP” McGuire and his family. Rogers said a special part of this project has been just getting to know JP and his family. “We couldn’t have had a nicer young man and family to be doing this for. It makes you understand the troops and the sacrifices they make.” McGuire was on his second tour of duty in Iraq when he stepped on an IED, resulting in the loss of his right leg. The young veteran hasn’t allowed the injury to prevent him from pursuing his dreams. He works full-time as a product specialist at Bellwood, and volunteers as a wrestling coach at his alma matter, J.R. Tucker High School. The couple has two small children, and the new home will make it easier for McGuire to keep up with the energetic youngsters. The home features widened doorways for wheelchair access, pull-down shelving, lowered countertops and other special needs adaptations. McGuire said the efforts to assist him and his family are life-changing, and has overwhelmed him with the response.

“HFOT and R-CI both took this project on with no questions asked,” McGuire said. “They have been here for me the whole process, ready to answer any questions I had.” The new surroundings will offer McGuire the freedom and peace of mind that allows him to focus on the important things in his life. “This is a home that is made for me, totally handicapped accessible,” McGuire said. “I don’t have to worry about if I can get around the whole house, take care of the kids, anything I want to do. I can’t thank them enough.” The new home also allows his wife Brittany a new sense of freedom: the ability to leave home with the confidence that JP can access the entire home. “The house will be such a help in our daily lives, not only for my husband but for me caring for him,” Brittany said. “To have everything 100 percent accessible allows him to do so much on his own.” And the kindness and generosity displayed by HFOT, R-CI and the community won’t be forgotten by the appreciative family. “Both HFOT and R-CI have taken us into their families. We couldn’t be more appreciative.” The home should be move-in ready by the spring.

A new project underway on the east side of the airport will enhance corporate and business opportunities when completed. The county also faces challenges that Harris described in his address. Pressing road issues are made complicated by revised state assistance that could make the process more expensive for local governments. “Some of the money we had for that will likely not be there in the future,� Harris said.

the 2008 downturn. Harris pointed to a 23 percent increase in applications for building permits, coupled with increases in real estate assessments that exceeded 7 percent in some areas of the county as positive signs of growth in the county. The county administrator said the good news regarding that development is that most of it is located in areas targeted by county planners for expansion, the Suburban Service Area. “The plan is working and this is a great indication of that,� Harris said. A 1.6 percent increase in population is slightly over the county’s 1.5 percent goal. “We are where we need to be in that area,� Harris said. He also indicated sales tax and lodging tax revenues are enjoying significant increases. The county continues to tout a AAA bond rating, something Harris said will continue in the future. He also pointed to substantial road projects that include the Lewistown Road bridge widening and U.S. 360 improvements, all moving ahead on schedule. “These improvements make life easier for our citizens and easier for our businesses,� Harris

The microloan option is expected to be of particular benefit to smaller farms and ranches, and specialty crop producers who may not have access to commercial storage or on-farm storage after harvest. These producers can invest in equipment like conveyers, scales or refrigeration units and trucks that can store commodities before delivering them to markets.

The election you do not want to miss

Confederacy not ‘Southern heritage’

By Melody Kinser Managing Editor Last week’s front page provided some very important information, courtesy of Hanover County General Registrar Teresa “Teri” Smithson. First, it has to be noted what a pleasure she is to work with at an incredibly frantic time in her office. She and her staff are so accommodating. So, thank you, Teri, for your professionalism and dedication to the people of Hanover County in preparing and executing everything necessary to hold an election. Without a doubt (and we aren’t going to talk about the candidates today), this election is

beyond the emphasis of you have to participate. Regardless of your preference in the presidential election, get out and vote. There are no excuses. Smithson and her team work extra hours and provide every imaginable access possible to ensure voters can register and take part in the process. Without fail, every election makes me think of my father. When I came of age to register, he instilled in me the responsibility — and privilege — voting provides. And, even when I’ve been a bit lazy about a special election where there’s only one item on the ballot, I hear his voice, “Melody, it’s your right and it’s an honor to vote.” As Nov. 8 gets closer, this theme will be addressed again, because every vote truly does

count. I’m not encouraging any candidate or any political affiliation. My goal is to see Hanover County with a remarkable turnout. Regardless of the weather, or what that day may hold, you have 13 hours to cast your ballot. Polls will open at 6 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.

Driving around Mechanicsville, I yet again noticed a bumper sticker that said “Southern Heritage.” I thought back on other similar signs and stickers I had seen and realized they were all accompanied by the image of a Confederate battle Be thankful for our voting machines flag.

While many of these players will undoubtedly capture post season individual honors, not a single one will wear the #1 jersey when the Bulldogs take the field.

immune, and it’s time we started doing business differently,” Harris said. He referenced drug offenders who are frequently arrested, incarcerated and then re-enter the system at alarmingly high rates. “Unless you give them life sentences, we have to do something that’s more effective,” he said. That different form of adjudication includes strict monitoring that requires bi-weekly visits to the courtroom, frequent and random drug and alcohol tests, and requirements for employment. Participants also are required to attend drug support meetings through AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) or NA (Narcotics Anonymous). “We are working to establish an adult drug treatment court program in Hanover similar to what we already have in place for juveniles,” Harris said. Drug courts were created about 25 years ago to offer local

officials an additional method to treat habitual offenders with goals of lower recidivism rates and cost reductions. While there are many variations of the system in use throughout the United States, Harris said this program would be unique to Hanover County. “I want to emphasize that our program is going to be designed to focus entirely on individuals that have been identified as both high risk for abuse and high need for substance abuse treatment,” Judge Harris said. The program targets offenders who have probation violations from previous convictions who are not appearing in court for new criminal charges. Harris served as a judge in a similar program that focuses on DUI offenders in Spotsylvania County. “I had a good exposure to the model at that time.” Harris also dispelled the belief that drug courts are soft on crime. “The answer is no,” Harris said. “The participants undergo long-term treatment and

He also noted the innovative progress taking place at the county’s business incubator program. “We have a vibrant regional entrepreneurial system which we love, but we wanted to create that in Hanover and we have,” Gaskin said. Gaskin credited the economic development successes on a positive relationship his department maintains with the county’s business community. He said his job is made easier counseling, sanctions for violations, frequent court appearances, and violations (of the program) may result in jail time,” he said. Statewide studies indicate drug and other special courts can save localities substantial money by reducing incarceration and litigation costs. But the ultimate goal is rehabilitation and reduction of drug abuse coupled with efforts to return participants to a productive role in society. Those chosen for the program will pay $75 monthly to offset some of the costs of the program. “We think that’s an important part of the program,” Harris said. A team of local officials that included members from law enforcement, the Hanover

with the “consistent theme of new opportunity” evident in Hanover. “We go out and talk to our businesses and don’t sit around the office and wait for the phone to ring,” he said. “We have a business outreach program where we go out and canvas neighborhoods. We know where our customers are.” So what is the state of the county? The county administrator has a clear idea. “From my perspective, I see a county with a flourishing business community, a growing economy, the lowest real estate taxes in the region, a AAA bond rating, the lowest crime rate in the region, the highest graduation rate … the most money spent in the classroom — I think we are in a good pretty good state here in Hanover County.” County Sheriff ’s Office and special services compiled the plan that Harris will present for state approval. The program will begin seeking federal grants in January 2017, and also will begin a pilot program with six participants early next year. “We want to make sure we are taking the right steps so we are going to start small,” Harris said. The pilot program will not require additional resources, and volunteers would provide many of the services required. “As Sheriff [Col. David R.] Hines has told us, ‘We can’t arrest ourselves out of this problem,’ ” Harris said, referring to the growing drug addiction problem. “We need a new tool in our tool belt.”

men that use the program as a springboard to meaningful and successful lives. While the wins and losses are always important, Fowler requires a higher calling for his players. Jack recently made his annual visit to Goochland for Coach to Cure, and torrential downpours couldn’t dampen the experience of meeting with players he considers teammates. More importantly, my fami-

ly always walks away from these events with much more than the peace of mind of knowing Jack and the Bulldogs are participating in a united effort to treat and cure MD. No, it’s something equally as reassuring — a sense of knowing that we are not in this battle alone, and, somehow, all of those children who suffer with Duchenne are lifted by the efforts of kids who run, pass, and kick for children who

cannot do any of those things. As for those efforts by this year’s staff of coaches, players, students, fans and the Goochland community, I am overwhelmed by their kindness and they are all number one in my mind. As the team continues its campaign with a firm focus and a strong-willed determination, one team member will be watching … and he’ll be wearing #1.

every 10 years, but because the public is generally unaware of this requirement, many homes have smoke alarms past their expiration date, putting people at increased risk. As the official sponsor of Fire Prevention Week for more than 90 years, NFPA is promoting this year’s Fire Prevention

Week campaign, “Don’t Wait — Check the Date! Replace Smoke Alarms Every 10 Years,” to better educate the public about the critical importance of knowing how old their smoke alarms are and replacing them once they’re 10 years old. Fire Prevention Week is being observed Oct. 9-15. The Ashland Volunteer Fire Company, Hanover FireEMS Station 1, is hosting an open house from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 15, at 501 Archie Cannon Drive in Ashland in support of Fire Prevention Week and this year’s campaign. The event will include food and drinks, live demonstrations, games, and fun for all ages. Through this educational, family-oriented event, residents can learn more about the importance of having working smoke alarms.

To find out how old your smoke alarm is and its expiration date, simply look on the back of the alarm where the date of manufacture is marked. The smoke alarm should be replaced 10 years from that date (not the date of purchase). The Hanover Fire-EMS Department also said smoke alarms should be tested monthly, and that batteries should be replaced once a year or when they begin to chirp, signaling that they’re running low. Anyone requiring special assistance with smoke alarms should contact the Hanover Fire-EMS Department at 804365-6195. If you live outside of Hanover County, you can call the Metro Richmond Smoke Alarm Hotline at 1-888-5375967.

PHYLLIS GRAVATT Phyllis Elizabeth Nunn Gravatt, January 3, 1928 to October 7, 2016. On January 3, 1928, James and Dorothy Nunn welcomed baby Phyllis, Just five when her mother died, Phyllis was raised in Aylett Village by her paternal grandparents, Josiah and Bessie, on the banks of the Mattaponi. She attended King William High School; English was her favorite subject; math, she proclaimed, a bore. She graduated Valedictorian in 1945. Phyllis worked briefly as a secretary in Richmond before becoming reacquainted with 23-year-old Percy Gravatt Jr., an Air Force pilot just back from World War II. After a whirlwind three-month courtship, they married in October of 1946. Phyllis and Percy, or “Peewee” and “Juke,” as they affectionately referred

to one another, remained together until Percy’s death in 2004. Phyllis loved her perfectly imperfect children unconditionally, whether they deserved it or not. Despite her insistence to family and friends that she enjoyed “the having done rather than the doing,” Phyllis was truly a homeGRAVATT maker, and she was “doing” something to that end most of the time. She had a real knack for interior design, painting one wall of her cream-colored living room an audacious, and flawless, shade of blue; see OBITUARIES, pg. 13

Karla and Jaromir Raisinger celebrate 50th wedding anniversary

M

ECHANICSVILLE – Perseverance, dedication to family and knowing how to live life well are among the characteristics that the children of Jaromir and Karla Raisinger have exhibited as they celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. The Mechanicsville couple was united in marriage on Oct. 1, 1966. The Raisingers celebrated their golden anniversary with their children, Iva and Johnny; son-in-law and daughter-in-law, Brian and Klaudia; and their four grandchildren, Oliver, Jean-Sebastian, Ana Karolina and Ava Viktoria. Iva and Johnny said their parents’ life in the United States “started with a movie-like adventure that was to disrupt but ultimately expand, as change does, their life. In 1980, the couple, both in their early 30s, made the difficult decision to uproot their family and leave their comfortable albeit limited life in communist Czechoslovakia for the unknown. He was a mechanical engineer; she had a degree in economics and worked as a human resource director. They lived a good life, balanced with work and leisure with family and friends, taking their children on summer vacations to the Adriatic Sea and snow skiing in the Tatra Mountains during the winter. “Nevertheless, the two of them, ambitious and capable young people, chose to go in search of a life of greater opportunities for them and their children, a life free of oneparty dictate, with the freedom to speak and not to have to close one’s windows, and the freedom to travel around the world without any limitations -- all that is embodied in the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.” The Raisingers, according to the children, “were willing to work hard, transition into a life spoken in English and adopt their new American culture.” The first step was to escape the closed borders. They arranged a vacation to Yugoslavia,

the only communist country with an open border to the West. After an 11-month waiting period in Austria, the Raisingers arrived in Richmond on June 21, 1981. There were two adults, two children and eight suitcases in all. Iva and Johnny said that they were warmly welcomed by their sponsors, the families of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Prince George County. The Sacred Heart families became their new American family and remain as such. Iva and Johnny said they and their parents have so many people to thank for their help along the way, including the Seberas, Blahas, Beaudets, Skalskys, Hanzliks, Wagners, Cernys, Machs, Zittas, and Dingases. Once they came to America, they pursued employment. Jaromir was fortunate. With his mechanical engineering degree and knowledge of German, he was quickly spotted by Jeanet Beaudet, a savvy head-hunter in the Prince George community. Within a week, Jaromir was offered a job with the Richmond branch of the German company Hauni, which manufactures tobacco machines. The German Hauni became the cornerstone of the Raisingers’ successful and stable life in the U.S. Jaromir remained there for 30 years, after which he comfortably retired at the age of 62. With her limited English, Karla faced a greater challenge in finding a job in her white collar field. “Standing strong and dedicated to do what needs to be done,” her children said, “she left her professional career behind, and, when presented with the opportunity, set up an independent house painting business, with most of her work done for Balducci Builders.” Her decision proved successful, as she was able to provide a solid income while have the flexibility of being a mother. She built a

reputation for quality work and enjoyed being her own boss for 25 years until she retired at age 59. After a mere two years in Prince George, the Raisingers were in a position to buy their own home. They chose to resettle in Mechanicsville for the good school district, proximity to a larger city and to cut down on Jaromir’s commute time. Cold Harbor became their new home and they steadfastly established their roots here. Both children went to Lee-Davis High School. Iva said she fondly remembers her teachers, among whom most notably her English teacher, Ms. Roberts-Gabay. Ms. Roberts-Gabay recognized Iva’s potential and dedicated time to mentor her. With her guidance, Iva was accepted early decision to the University of Virginia. Johnny, under Jaromir’s tenacious coach-

ing, became a Lee-Davis tennis star. While he was offered a tennis scholarship at a smaller college, he chose to head to Northern Virginia to attend George Mason University. For both children, their Virginian universities proved to be an excellent stepping stone for their further pursuits. Iva went on to get her master’s degree at Columbia University in New York, and then returned to UVa, where she received her MBA from Darden. Over the years, Iva held senior roles at Columbia University, New York University, IBM and Ernst & Young. After a year of traveling around Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia, Johnny settled in Northern Virginia, joined the United States Coast Guard, and, while on active duty during Operation Iraqi Freedom, completed see RAISLINGER pg. 25

BEAVERDAM -- The annual Stanley family reunion will get underway at 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 15, at the Mt. Olivet Baptist Church in Beaverdam. According to Mary Ellen Stanley Cauthorn, if there isn’t more participation in the long-time event, it may be discontinued. She said the Central Virginia Stanley family organization was formed to provide a forum for local descendants of the Stanley family to gather and celebrate their history in this area. Participation has been decreasing each year, reaching the point of having to consider no longer having the social event. “Be advised that, unless there is a marked increase in attendance and participation at this year’s reunion, it will be the final Stanley reunion for the Central Virginia Stanley chapter,” Cauthorn said. On behalf of the chapter, she sent out a request that family members “make every effort to attend and encourage any other Stanley families to join you.”

The Central Virginia Stanley family organization will reunite Saturday at the Mt. Olivet Baptist Church in Beaverdam. A longtime tradition, the reunion may be the last as the number of family members attending has dwindled in recent years.

The reunion includes a covered dish luncheon at the church. For more information, call Mary Ellen Stanley Cauthorn at 804-798-8926.

Many rally-goers wore t-shirts with political messages.

A student at Randolph-Macon College recently received a $1,500 scholarship from the Colonial Agricultural Educational Foundation. Noah James Shepherd was among two organizations and 83 students residing in Central and Eastern Virginia and Southern Maryland to be awarded a scholarship from the Foundation. “Each year we are amazed at the number of exceptional and deserving students that apply for the scholarships,” said Gene Marker, president of the Foundation. “We hope that these scholarships help ease the burden that tuition places on many students and their families.” The Foundation was established by agricultural lender Colonial Farm Credit in 1990 to promote education and community enrichment through educational scholarships and to support

programs and services offered by community organizations. Scholarships are awarded to individuals who exhibit an aptitude for learning and a desire for self-improvement through education. To date, the Foundation has awarded more than $1,000,000 in scholarships. For more information on the Foundation, visit www.colonialfarmcredit.com. Applications for 2017 scholarships will be available at the scholarship link on the website starting Nov. 1. The deadline for all applications will be March 1, 2017.

‘Beekeeping 101’ class offers tips on keeping your own honey bees Dorothy McAuliffe. “All of this is in recognition of the vital role honey bees have in our ecology and economy. However, if it wasn’t for those willing to be beekeepers, honey bee populations would be in an even more serious decline. With the myriad of human generated impediments to bees’ survival, beekeeping classes and mentoring programs offer new beekeepers skills needed to improve their bees’ chances of survival,” Bolton added. Class topics include: Colony Dynamics; Hive Components & Gear; Colony Management; Bee Pests, Diseases & Other Problems; and Acquiring Bees. Cost of the class is $50 per person (includes lunch and all-day beverages, and Beekeeping

Basics book); $45/person (discount applies only for additional member(s) of same household as person who purchases $50 ticket (required); no book included).

Both of these required the issuance of Best Management Practice plans, which will not only benefit the bees, but the general public as well.” Following that, the Hanover County Board of Supervisors approved an ordinance in support of beekeeping in residential zoning, and the Henrico County Board of Supervisors is considering the same.

MECHANICSVILLE – The Cool Spring Baptist Church, located at 9283 Atlee Station Rd. in Mechanicsville, will host its second annual Q Commons event at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13. Q Commons launched in 2014 as a live national event experience brought to local areas to help people focus on the advancement of good in the local community. It equips Christians on how to thoughtfully engage the cultural moment. Since its inception, more than 15,000 individuals have participated in 180 Q Commons city events on five continents. Q Commons is rooted in Christian values and doctrine, and will focus on equipping both those of the Christian faith, as well as those who do not identify as Christian on how to thoughtfully engage culture and advance the common good in their communities. Through immersive learning experiences where no topic is off limits, leaders are encouraged to think, process and consider their approach on the most difficult cultural conversations they will face. The theme for this year’s

event is “Engaging Our Divided Nation.” The national speakers, via satellite, for the evening will be author and Christian apologist Ravi Zacharias, authors and political commentators Ross Douthat and Kristen Powers, and Grammy winning hip-hop artist Lecrae. Three local speakers also will be featured at the event, including writer

CAMPAIGN Continued from pg. 2 

of the 2016 fall campaign, Tractor Supply and the National 4-H Council hope to reach the milestone of $10 million raised for 4-H members since the partnership began seven years ago. With the more than $935,351 raised during the 2016 spring campaign, Tractor Supply and its shoppers have now raised more than $9.2 million for 4-H programs across the

country in only seven years of Paper Clover Campaigns. The effort has provided direct support to further county level 4-H programs. Effective this fall, funds raised will be used to provide scholarships to youth for 4-H camps and leadership experiences. “Partnering with 4-H gives us the opportunity to enhance our stores’ communities and provide support to 4-H members,” said Christi Korzekwa, senior vice president of

marketing at Tractor Supply. “With the help of our dedicated customers, these scholarships will allow numerous students to build upon their leadership skills through attendance at youth development camps, strengthening 4-H programs across the country.” Tractor Supply Company and Del’s Feed and Farm Supply customers will have the opportunity to purchase paper clovers through Oct. 16 for $1 or more during checkout. Tractor Supply will work with 4-

H groups on the state level to donate the funds as scholarships to local 4-H members to attend camps and leadership conferences. 4-H members can contact their county agents for information on how to apply. The number of scholarships distributed to students will be determined based on the total amount raised throughout the campaign. “For many years, this fundraising event has allowed us to provide thousands of 4-H youth across the coun-

try greater access to 4-H programs,” said Jennifer Sirangelo, president and CEO, National 4-H Council. “We are thrilled about our continued partnership with Tractor Supply Company as it drives the excitement of local community participation and support for 4-H programs, and therefore the success of the 4-H Paper Clover Campaign.” For more information, visit www.TractorSupply.com or www.4H.org.

do.” The vacancy didn’t attract any nominees the first time the Ashland District school board seat appeared on the supervisors’ agenda. Hawkins had been approached and encouraged to talk to Prichard. But, she said, “I just kind of moved on and I wasn’t saying yes or no; I was just kind of moving along. It [the position] circled around again.” That’s when she decided she would talk to Prichard. She said that conversation “really did spark that interest and this is the place where I can be and where I believe I can be heard and I can help. Help is the first thing.” From a personal perspective, Hawkins said her goal would be “to feel and know that I have done everything that I can do that’s going to enhance

children -- not just a child, but children in the community. Personally, I want to be able to reach out and communicate with those who would need my help.” “And when I say reach out and communicate with them,” she added, “I want to be able to provide the kind of help that is needed, but always keeping in mind that what I do is the best for the children -- that could be personal and professional. Hawkins has had a vested interest in the school district. A granddaughter started at the Hanover Academy and then went to Chickahominy Middle School and graduated from Atlee High School. A resident of Kings Charter, Hawkins had spent her teaching career in Henrico County. She started with Holliday Elementary School and then moved to Maude Trevette School, where she has been an instructional assistant for five

years. However, Hawkins was not always in a classroom. Her years with Verizon found her in a very corporate world, where she was responsible for training and teaching. “But,” she noted, “as we know, teaching children and adults are kind of two different things.” Her work with Verizon included resource management and managing certain areas. She was she was “sure that kind of brought me the management skills.” Among the strengths she gained through that experience, she said, were the ability to manage what you have to do. “Not only do you have the processes, you have to take care of it.” She also pointed out the need for good people skills. As she takes on this new role in the school division, Hawkins said she is confident that she brings the managerial, management and people skills that will prove very helpful in the school system. The years at Verizon, Hawkins said, were enjoyable. She worked with prestigious clients. “But,” she said, “after a time it was time for me not to do that. After I left Verizon I knew it wasn’t time to do nothing.” That was when a friend in the school system suggested she go into the classroom. She said the friend was very encouraging and told her, “You have something to offer.” Hawkins applied in Henrico and Hanover. Henrico responded the next day. “It moved much faster than I anticipated. Well, I’m glad I wanted to go. Once I started that, it was ‘Wow.’ ” By coincidence, the friend who recommended she try her hand at teaching also works in Henrico. Since she was appointed, Hawkins said she has been welcomed and congratulated by so many people. “People that I don’t really know; I know by see SCHOOL, pg. 27

Her curiosity took her initially to Europe for leisure travel with her husband. Then she raised the stakes and ventured further afield with her daughter to exotic countries such as Thailand, Indonesia, Israel, Jordan, Columbia and Turkey. As she gets ready to celebrate her 70th birthday, Argentina is next on her list. When she is not abroad, she hops over to New York City to visit the grandchildren â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and to get a dose of opera, theater

and the buzz of the city. In Austria, Jaromir worked as a construction engineer on a large home for a local aristocrat. The two befriended each other and Jaromir got to take the blueprints with him to America with the hope that one day he would build such a house for his family. The day came just about 15 years to the date. In 1996, Jaromir and Karla bought three acres of land on the old Pebble Creek farm, edging up on a large pond with a good acre of woods. Here they set off to build their dream homestead. Through 20 years of care, the home has become a retreat for the whole family, especially the four grandchildren.

Fuel assistance applications being accepted ASHLAND -- The Hanover County Department of Social Services began accepting applications for the Fuel Assistance Program on Tuesday, Oct. 11. 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 processed as soon as possible but no later than mid-December. Funds are sent directly to the vendor beginning the first week in January. Hanover’s share of this statewide allocation is limited. Applications for Fuel Assistance are available at the

Confederates pound away at Atlee for win By Arthur Utley For the Times-Dispatch MECHANICSVILLE – The meaty part of the 2016 schedule has arrived for the Lee-Davis football team. The Confederates defeated visiting Atlee 21-10 to win the Stew Bowl on homecoming Friday night and raise their record to 5-1. How they fare the next four weeks will determine where they fit in the 5A South playoffs. Next up is No. 4 Highland Springs, followed by Hanover, Henrico and Patrick Henry. After winning their first six games a year ago, the Confederates went 2-2 against the same quartet, then went on to win their first playoff game in years before being eliminated, barely, by the Springers in the second round. “Highland Springs is a game we circle every year because they are the greatest competition out there right now. They’re a great football team, but we think we’re a great football team, too,” said Nathan Evans, Lee-Davis’ All-Metro first-team running back. “Having them come here last year and beat us on our home field left a very sour taste in our mouth, and we want to avenge that. We want to go there and play a hard-fought football game, and hopefully, come out with a win.” Evans had another big night

TOANO – The Hanover High School’s golf team is officially the best in school history. The Hawks, while never short of individual players who advanced to state championship tournaments, had never advanced to states as a team. This year Hanover, led by senior Ward Wilkinson with a 4-under-par 67, did just that. And the Hawks advanced as region champions after winning the Region 4A East title at the Tradition Golf Club at Stonehouse in Toano on Oct. 3. The Hawks competed see HANOVER, pg. 35 


King William comes back for homecoming win for 148 yards and 2 touchdowns. Defensively, Jerean Rogers anchored the second half stand that made the victory possible, laying down what DeHart described as the hardest hit he saw all night from either defense.

By Andrew Spencer for the Mechanicsville Local CENTRAL GARAGE – King William began its homecoming game playing catch-up with visiting Charles City County. For most of the game, the Panthers seemed dominant. The Cavaliers eventually overtook Charles City late in the third quarter for their first lead, and they stubbornly fought off a determined Panther comeback attempt to close out their homecoming celebrations with a 38-30 win. It was more of a contest than many fans expected it to be. After a scoreless first quarter, Charles City got on the scoreboard first on a halfback pass from Mason Jefferson to a wide-open Kyle Jones. Jefferson connected with Justin Thomas for the 2-point conversion to make it 8-0. The Cavs came storming back with their own 70-yard touchdown drive – capped by an 8-yard run by running back Brenon Sawdy with a 2-point conversion by quarterback Ryan Huffman to even the score – but afterward they seemed to fall apart. Charles City’s Justin Thomas responded by taking the ensuing kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown. On the next King William possession, Jones stripped the ball from Cavalier running back Gilbert Holmes and took it 70 yards for another Panther score to make it 24-8. “Tonight we gave away two big touchdowns,” said King William head coach Dylan DeHart. “We gave them those two, but give them credit. They came to play tonight.” The Cavaliers closed the gap with a 17-yard strike from Huffman to wide receiver John Williams, but because of an illegal equipment penalty, they had to settle for a point-after by

Alex Dandridge instead of the 2-point conversion they initially lined up for. With the Panthers up 24-15 at the half, DeHart and his staff had to make some adjustments, both in terms of X’s and O’s as well as the players’ attitude in order to prevent a less-than-joyous homecoming. “We told them that they were giving the game away,” DeHart said. “We told them they were allowing these guys to crash their party on homecoming night.” Despite the halftime speech, it looked like the same King William team came out at the start of the third quarter.

A three-and-out netted King William a 1-yard loss and forced a Cavalier punt. Two plays later, Charles City’s Jefferson put the Panthers up by another touchdown. 30-15. The King William offense continued to sputter, with quarterback Ryan Huffman throwing an interception on the next Cavalier possession. It looked like it was all over for King William. But then something happened on the Cavalier sideline. The defense stood fast and held the Panthers to a three-andout that forced a punt from the 7-yard line. The Cavs needed only two plays to find the

end zone on a 22-yard run by Huffman. Huffman connected with Williams for the 2-point conversion to cut the Charles City lead to 30-23. After another great defensive stand, the King William defense mached 58 yards on 11 plays to score on a 7-yard run by Sawdy. Huffman ran in for another 2-point conversion to make it 31-30. The Cavaliers added another score in the fourth on a 1-yard run by Huffman, and Dandridge added the pointafter to make it 38-31. The defense had to withstand a determined Panther attack in the final minutes, ending the game on defensive back

Luke Slaughter’s interception of a Charles City pass in the end zone. “I told the team that this game – this second half – could be the turning point of the season,” DeHart said. Time will tell if that turning point results in a deep playoff run for the Cavaliers. “We didn’t help ourselves early in the season,” DeHart said. “We’re going to have to go in as a lower seed and probably travel to play higher seeds, but we’re working every week to get better.” Sawdy was the most valuable offensive player on the field, carrying the ball 23 times

Resurgent Blue Devils upend Patrick Henry By Kris Mason For the Mechanicsville Local VARINA – Patrick Henry’s undefeated season was on the line with 7 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. The Patriots trailed 20-14 and faced a fourth down and 5 yard to go on the Varina 17-yard line. They decided to go for the yardage rather than kick a field goal. Varina had played a 4-4 defense the entire game but changed their defense to a 5-3 on this series. The defensive schematic change would prove to be the turning point in the game. Patrick Henry called a rollout pass for running back Hunter Hart, who was forced right and threw the ball beyond the end zone, resulting in a turnover on downs. On the ensuing drive, Varina senior C.J. Jones broke free for an 84-yard touchdown that gave the Blue Devils a 26-14 lead –which would be the final score – and hand the Patriots their first loss of the season. The 84-yard run was Jones’ third touchdown of the night. He finished with 157 yards on 13 carries. On paper, Varina (3-3) handed Patrick Henry (5-1) an upset, but both coaches felt that the Blue Devils are much better than their record indicated. “The worst team we’ve played is No. 6 Thomas Dale and

No. 5 Hermitage, so that says a lot about our schedule,” said Varina head coach Stu Brown. “The teams we’ve played have a combined three losses.” Patrick Henry started strong, but fizzled, receiving the opening kickoff and using up nearly

the entire first quarter on the drive. The Patriots were able to get the ball into Varina territory but were slowed by penalties, eventually having to punt with three minutes remaining in the first quarter. “We gave ourselves a chance

defensively, we just didn’t make a few plays,” said Patrick Henry head coach Bryan Davis. “Offensively we moved the ball pretty well but the penalties really hurt us. We were taking two steps forward and three steps back.”

Varina was held to a threeand-out on its first possession. Terrance Oxendine returned the ensuing punt 45 yards for a touchdown to give the Patriots a 7-0 lead. The Blue Devils responded in the second quarter with

in the first half, but the Raiders’ only points came on a 35-yard field goal by Reid Childers with 9.8 seconds left in the half. An Atlee fumble on its first possession of the second half was recovered by the Confederates’ Josh Rice at the Lee-Davis 49-yard line. Three plays later, Lass threw a swing pass to Anthony, who raced 30 yards for the touchdown. It was

the only pass Lass completed. The Raiders fumbled on the kickoff, and Lee-Davis’ Andrew Anthony recovered, but the Confederates gave the ball back on the next play when Derrick Mills intercepted a Lass pass that was tipped. The Raiders drove 65 yards and scored on a 22-yard pass from Tyler Warren to John Johnson.

Atlee looked to be in a good position after pinning the Confederates against the goal line before Evans and company sealed the victory. “We’ve got to get better in a few areas. I feel like we’re in a good spot. We’ve got to keep getting better and try to win,” Lee-Davis coach Ryan Turnage said. Arthur Utley can be reached

a pair of touchdowns, taking advantage of a Patrick Henry fumble at the 45-yard line for their first score on C.J. Jones’ 5-yard run with 8:21 remaining in the half. Varina placekicker Shane Barrett missed the extra point to leave the Patriots with a 7-6 lead. The Blue Devils picked up their passing attack on its next drive, though, which ended with quarterback R.J. Coles connecting with wide receiver Samond Pinchback for a 5-yard touchdown. Jones ran the 2point conversion to give Varina a 14-7 lead going into halftime. Patrick Henry bounced back at the start of the third quarter, tying the game on a 4-yard touchdown run by Hart. But Jones was able to regain the lead for the Blue Devils with a 34-yard run to give Varina a 20-14 with 10 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. Despite the loss, Davis still feels that there is reason for optimism for the rest of the season. “When I sat down with the seniors before the season we looked at each game and we didn’t talk about 6-0,” Davis said. “We were trying to be realistic. We are ahead of the curve.” The Patriots host Armstrong for their homecoming game Friday. Kris Mason can be reached at sports@mechlocal.com.

R-MC beats Bridgewater to stay undefeated By Vic Dorr Richmond Times Dispatch ASHLAND – The only thing missing was mud; that, and clumps of grass wedged between the bars of players’ face masks. On a raw, windy, rainy day, a day seemingly created with old-style football in mind, Randolph-Macon’s defense delivered an old-style performance. The Yellow Jackets, physical and opportunistic, ran roughshod over Bridgewater while laying the foundation for Saturday’s 21-0 victory at Day Field. The numbers were remarkable. The effort was likewise. Randolph-Macon (5-0, 2-0 ODAC) allowed only 83 total yards and five first downs. The Eagles rushed 33 times for an average of 0.8 yards per attempt. “We live in an era of spreading people out and up-tempo offenses, but that’s not who we are,” Yellow Jackets coach Pedro Arruza said. “That’s not what we’re about. We want to play defense. If we have a good player, and there’s a question of putting him on offense or defense, believe me, we’re going to put him on defense.” Bridgewater almost certainly believes. The Yellow

in the Virginia High School League Group 4A championship tournament, which was held Monday and Tuesday at Stonehouse – after this edition went to press. Wilkinson was the only player to break 70 as Hanover bested second-place Great Bridge by six strokes.

Jackets, who entered the afternoon ranked first in the ODAC and 15th in NCAA Division III in scoring defense, resembled piranha in a feeding frenzy. They rang up four sacks (for 21

yards in losses) and five other tackles for loss. They permitted the Eagles to convert only 1 of 16 third-down opportunities. Arruza was not surprised. “We start eight seniors on

defense,” he said. “A lot of them have started since they were freshmen. They’re committed. They’ve completely bought in to what we’re doing.” The four veterans along

the defensive front, he said, “are as good if not better than any group in the league. They played lights-out today. They did a great job.” In the process, they made it possible for Arruza to all but take the treacherous weather out of play. Randolph-Macon played prudently – conservatively, even, for much of the afternoon. The Yellow Jackets ran 74 offensive plays. Fiftythree were runs. First- and third-quarter rushing touchdowns by sophomore Tre Frederick put R-MC in firm control. Arruza said the steady startto-finish rain rendered the ball slick and heavy and made every exchange an adventure. “We talked about it in our meetings (during the week),” he said. “We said, ‘If we’re playing well on defense, then we’re going to ride them.’ We’re going to be careful. We’re not going to do anything that might put them in a bad spot.” Prudent? Yes. Timid? No. Sophomore quarterback Joe Vairo completed 11 of 21 passes for 186 yards. His contributions included two big second-half completions. His 20-yard strike to tight end Sean McDonald on third-and-20 from the Bridgewater 22 set up Frederick’s third-quarter score.

“No matter what happens Monday and Tuesday at the state [championship], this is the greatest golf team in the history of the school,” said Hanover head coach Chris Pace. “The previous highest regional finish was fourth or fifth. … I would have been ecstatic to be regional runner-up.” Junior Jimmy Hill and senior Robert Martin came in second and third for the Hawks with scores of 77 and 78 respec-

tively. Sophomore Christian Dyer closed out Hanover’s scoring with an 83 for a team total of 305. Great Bridge was second with a 311, followed by Jamestown (312), Monacan (323), Louisa (326), Lafayette (345), Eastern View (358) and Churchland (380). “They’re playing great golf right now,” Pace said. “The region championship, I honestly didn’t really expect that, but I

knew they had it in them. They just had a great day.” Pace said the Hawks have been hot of late. “The 310 for conference was a season low. Then they went to Stonehouse, to the regional, with more pressure – bigger stakes and lowered it by five more strokes with a 305. Every coach’s dream is that your team is playing its best … during the postseason. That is exactly what my guys are doing right now.”

Region 2A East HARRISONBURG – King William freshman Taylor Hubbard advanced to the VHSL Group 2A golf championships by posting a 77 in the Region 2A East championships at Heritage Oaks Golf Course on Oct. 3. Hubbard, the Conference 33 individual champion, finished four strokes behind region medalist Henry Lutz of Prince Edward.

His 38-yard fourth-quarter touchdown pass to sophomore wideout Owen Ritter put the outcome under lock and key. Bridgewater (2-3, 1-1) encountered difficulties other than those created by RandolphMacon’s defense. Starting quarterback Jay Scroggins took a beating. He left the game early in the fourth quarter with concussion-like symptoms. Backup Brendon Maturey played two series before departing with an apparent ankle injury.
