DOSWELL – A Hanover County youth was among 12 who exhibited beef cattle, sheep, meat goats or swine in the 2016 State Fair of Virginia 4-H and FFA youth livestock program. Cody Johnson won bronze in the Senior division. He also was among the recipients of scholarships from the fair’s Applied Youth Livestock Scholarship Program. A total of $16,235 in scholarships was awarded, which was $3,555 more than last year. Judging was based on applicants’ State Fair participation, as well as on leadership and com-

munity service activities and an essay. Scholarships were offered in three age groups: Juniors (9-12), Intermediate (13-15) and Seniors (16 and older). Funds allocated for the scholarships represent a portion of proceeds from the Sale of Champions benefit auction, held Oct. 1. “The young people who earned the applied youth livestock scholarships represent the future of Virginia agriculture and have demonstrated a commitment to that future,” said M.L. Everett, president and chairman of the State Fair board. “We’re proud to invest in these winners’ respective futures, and we’re excited about the growth see FAIR, pg. 4

OPINION | The Local Views From the editor

LETTERS

Innocence removes fear of federal probe

| Reader Views

By Melody Kinser Managing Editor Thinking about living in a world filled with who’s listening in on who and who’s hacking whose computer accounts brought back an incident that took place in the summer of 1991. Yours truly was called into the publisher’s office at my hometown newspaper. Granted, sometimes it felt as though I was going to the principal’s office (but that’s another story). Anyway, after being summoned in and told to sit down, he proceeded to tell me that we had been checked out by the FBI and we both came up clean. Knowing I had nothing to hide, my immediate response was: “Did they ask you why you don’t pay me more?” That only elicited a glare. I wasn’t shaken or upset. It didn’t bother me that federal investigators had kept track of my

comings and goings. I expect some of the calls may have been entertaining — if they were, in fact, tapping my phones. It was no secret that agents were in the county gathering evidence about political corruption. Since our newspaper was the primary news source, the publisher and I, as managing editor, were put under the government microscope. The publisher was relaxed as we talked about our status. I remember telling him that there was no money trail and any check written to me was signed by a Kinser (that would be my parents and my sister, who kept her maiden name when she married). He did ask me: “Didn’t you notice the dark cars driving by your house?” Well, I wasn’t expecting anybody, so I didn’t spend any time looking out the windows in a paranoid frenzy. It was an 11-

room house and watching traffic was hardly on my to-do list. Just as I felt at that time, I’m not bothered by the idea of federal authorities looking into my background. With age, I’ve become pretty boring. I wonder if those phone recordings still exist. They would be interesting to hear. When I’ve shared this story through the years, I often get a wide-eyed look. People seem surprised that I didn’t freak out when I learned the Feds had been watching and, I guess, listening. After all these years, I’m still unfazed by the situation. That’s because being innocent provides that kind of security. As for the outcome of the probe, the federal government indicted two elected officials and an appointed one. They each served time in federal prisons.

Parlez-vous francais? A new slant on French cuisine By Jim Ridolphi Contributing Columnist If there’s a project due the next day in one of my children’s’ classes, I’m always the last to know about it. I’ve grown tired of my same old diatribe about how we need to plan things in a timely manner and make sure we don’t leave things for the last

Traffic stop had best intentions from the deputy I had a disappointing traffic stop this morning on my way to work. I was driving along U.S. 360, minding my own business and listening to 94.5 radio station when I heard the toot of a siren and saw the blue lights in my rear view mirror. Knowing that I am always in compliance with the law, never speeding, inspection sticker and registration up to date, I figured there are only two things left that could be reasons for the stop. My tag says KG (KING) TRUMP and, knowing the odds are against a Democrat being in the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office, I knew right away I wouldn’t be getting stopped for the tag. That leaves reason number two. As I’m listening to the radio they urge people to call in about the disadvantages of being too good looking, so right off I said to myself, “That’s it!! This is what they’re talking about; I’m being ticketed for being too good looking.” see LETTERS, pg. 8

Auditorium. In addition to the talents of community members, the show spotlights leaders, including Ashland Town Council, the Hanover County Board of Supervisors, Hanover County Public Schools, Hanover County School Board and Ashland Police Department. Ashland Mayor James Foley; Dr. Michael Gill, superintendent of HCPS; and John Axselle, chairman of the school board; agreed that the time together during rehearsals provides silliness and fun for them. They said

they enjoyed being able to show the public their “not so serious” side. While there won’t be any spoiler alerts, the mayor said one costume he will be wearing is “fabulous.” He would not elaborate on the performance.

didn’t seem yummy. Finally, as the clock ticked closer to bedtime, we substituted the custard with ice cream and decorated it with fruit. Finally finished, you say, but a good parent knows you are never finished and there’s always one more surprise in store for tired and weary fathers. We needed a drink to accompany the meal, preferably a French concoction that

looked frothy and had a fancy name. But, it was too late for translations, so we decided on café mocha. As I whisked the milk into a bubbly mess, I poured it on a cup of instant coffee, and, voila, we had something that resembled a French treat, at least by some stretch of the imagination. I’m not sure how Emma did on the project. The jury is still out with the grade, but — if there’s any credit

awarded for effort — I hope she passes. And I’ll pay a little more attention to the menu and try to expand my dietary quests to include more adventurous and foreign-sounding dishes in an effort to be better equipped for the next assignment in world cuisine. Will I be prepared for that next project that comes with a quickly approaching deadline? Not a chance!

Don’t replace ACA without a better plan

insurance on the marketplace for less than half the amount. Not only that, but the coverage was markedly better and our deductible greatly reduced. Our son, who is 26, pays only $68 a month for amazing coverage. I am gravely concerned that he will not be able to afford health insurance with the proposed Republican plan. It is disheartening to hear politicians use words like nightmare, disaster and failure to describe the ACA. For our family and our business, it has been good for our bottom line and, more importantly, good for our health. Do not repeal the ACA without a replacement that’s truly better.

It turned out to be a shortlived evaluation on my part as I soon found out the deputy just wanted to remove a tree limb I was dragging under the driver’s side of my truck.

CHRISTINE CHEEK Christine Tucker Cheek, 87, of Hanover, joined her Heavenly Father after peacefully passing away in her home on March 10, 2017. She was born in LaGrange, Georgia, to Brodie Tucker and Estelle Traylor. She was preceded in death by her loving sons, Randy Cheek and Marvin Cheek Jr.; her parents; a sister, Mary Crenshaw; and brothers, William and Delbert Tucker. She leaves to cherish her loving memory a devoted daughter, Deborah Nicholas and husband, Bill, of Hanover; and devoted son, William Cheek and wife, Stephanie, of Dinwiddie; sisters, Jacqueline Shufflebarger, Renie Chandler; and brother, Clinton Tucker. Christine worked for the C&O Railroad for 43 years and retired home to Virginia in 1995. A devoted sister, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Christine was defined by her love of family. As the family’s cor-

nerstone, “Mamaw” enjoyed cooking, Christmas decorating and always had a story to share with her grandbabes, Christopher Crenshaw (Laura), Kiirsten Farr (Steve), Ryan Cheek (Tammy), Kelly Cheek and Jonathan and Benjamin Cheek. She also reveled in spending time with her great-grandbabes, who were the light of her life in her final years, Grayson Shier, Greer and Ripley Farr, Eli and Deacon Crenshaw, Aidan and Hadley Cheek, and Gavin and Owen Dixon. Christine’s family would like to offer special thanks to Aunt Jeanette and Uncle David Lewis for their steadfast prayers and visits and to Kathy Cheek Jones for her nursing care during this difficult time. Christine’s favorite quote belonged to Jackie Kennedy, “If you bungle raising your children, I don’t think whatever else you do matters very much.” She was a simple woman who endeavored to leave the most important legacy one could leave to a child, “family values,” which will live on in the generations that follow her. There will be a private Celebration of Life ceremony in the near future.

that would serve dual-roles in a combination between patrol-level operations and investigative components due to increased workload, Goodman said the public safety agency also has an urgent need for additional assistance with narcotics investigations. “We talk about this, this is not a big secret – but the heroin epidemic is nationwide and we are not immune,” the chief said. He noted that, in 2014 and 2015, Ashland had zero deaths caused from opiate overdoses; but in 2016 there were 10 overGOODMAN doses and three deaths in the town that were a result of these drugs. “We have two investigators [who] that’s pretty much all they do: focus on narcotics, and by narcotics, [I mean] the heroin trade. There is always room for more, I could put four officers to work tomorrow on this issue alone,” Goodman said. He wanted to be clear though, he’s only see APD, pg. 17 

Bobbie Street to address longevity on April 9 Staff Report news@mechlocal.com ASHLAND — Ashland’s own Bobbie Street will present her much lauded Women’s Club paper on longevity, focusing on those “blue zone” communities, where people enjoy extraordinarily long lifespans.

asking for one, and having a person assigned to investigations to help assist them during periods while the patrol duty is fully-staffed with officers, “would be a godsend.” As with many budget proposals, Goodman reported on expenses during the 2016 fiscal year. “Like we’ve done in the past, we want to give you an overview of what we’ve done in the past year, I like to let you and the citizens know what we’ve done with your money …I think that’s a valuable exercise to go through,” the chief said. Goodman reported that the department has had an employment vacancy since Sept. 1 that they have not been able to fill, and they are in a second selection process now to fill the empty position. He said recruiting in law

enforcement has been more challenging in the last few years, and how they don’t hire just anybody. “We need to make sure they’re the right fit for our town, and that they’re highly qualified before we bring them on board in our police department; there’s too much at stake to not hire the right person,” said Goodman. The APD had 6,300 callsto-service last year, with a significant decrease in part-one offenses, which he credited Maj. Anthony Callahan with for his large part in working with Wal-Mart to reduce shoplifting and trying to prevent crime as opposed to having to respond to, investigate and make arrests with crime. Callahan was one of the officers attending the work session. They made 3,300 traffic stops that resulted in traffic tickets being issued to roughly 59% of the motorists that were

stopped, which resulted in just over 2,000 traffic summons, 38 citations for driving under the influence (DUI), 29 drug arrests and 11 fugitives. “Not everyone in Ashland who gets stopped by a police car gets a ticket,” he added. Also being focused on during the Tuesday, March 14, budget work session were more FY18 overviews for the finance department, planning and community development department, fire and rescue services, and the information technology budget. More information regarding other Ashland budget overviews that were discussed at that work session can be found at http://www.town.ashland.va.us/89/Town-Meetings. Council was scheduled to hear from Town Manager Joshua Farrar at the March 21 regular meeting. Once council has heard Farrar’s budget presentation, members will advertise a notice for a public hearing.

“This is the largest and most elaborate production we have attempted in my 15 years as director of the spring musical,” Mills said. “The students have been practicing daily since January. It is really a studentdriven production, with students from Chickahominy and our next door neighbor Atlee [High School] designing and creating scenery, choreographing musical numbers, working with sound and lighting, and serving as backstage crew.” This is Mills’ last Chickahominy production, as she is retiring from Hanover County Public Schools in June. “It has been my honor and privilege to direct some of Hanover’s brightest and most talented middle schoolers, and this year we will celebrate their accomplishments,” Mills said. She also said she hopes that many of those she has directed will come back this year, to celebrate those 15 musicals. “Beauty and the Beast

Jr.” tells the story of Belle, an adventurous young girl, and the Beast, her hideous captor who is actually a young prince trapped under a spell.

a beautiful friendship and love that neither knew was possible. Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast Jr.” is open to the public.

The Little Clinic at Kroger will ‘hold your spot’ NASHVILLE, Tennessee – The Little Clinic, a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Kroger Co., continues to expand convenience and accessibility for its customers with the introduction of “We’ll Hold Your Spot,” an online tool that allows consumers to reserve a place in line before they get to a clinic. The Little Clinic, which grew by nearly 15 percent in 2016, has launched “We’ll Hold Your Spot” at all 215 of its clinics located inside of select Kroger, Dillons, Fry’s, JayC and King Soopers in 10 states. “ ‘We’ll Hold Your Spot’ is an extension of our ongoing customer-first approach, a commitment we share with our parent company,” Margaret Lewis, innovation manager of The Little Clinic, said. “In today’s market, consumers want quality care but they want it on their schedule. This initiative is just another example of how The Little Clinic is a leader in being responsive to our valued patients by providing them an easier way to access healthcare so they can

select their clinic location. They will immediately see what the current wait time is and, if needed, they can click

on “We’ll Hold Your Spot,” provide basic information and receive a unique registration code and approximate time to come to the clinic. “The premise of our company is to serve the well-being of our customers and ‘We’ll Hold Your Spot’ does just that,” Lewis added. “We don’t require patients to use this tool and walk-ups are always welcome. For those, however, who want to go ahead and reserve a place in line before heading to the clinic, this is a new consumerfriendly, easy-to-use option.” The Little Clinic locations are staffed with board-certified nurse practitioners and physician assistants authorized to diagnose, treat, and write prescriptions for many common illnesses such as bronchitis, sinus infections, seasonal allergies and the flu. The clinics also provide a wide selection of additional wellness services such as physicals, health screenings, tobacco cessation, and a number of vaccinations. The Little Clinic provides care for the entire family from age 12 months and up (18 months and up in the state of Mississippi and 24

months and up in the state of Kentucky), seven days a week, including evenings. Clinics accept both insured and selfpay patients. About The Little Clinic Founded in 2003 and headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, The Little Clinic is a pioneer in customer-focused healthcare with a mission to provide convenient, affordable healthcare and wellness education. A wholly- owned subsidiary of The Kroger Co., The Little Clinic healthcare clinics

are currently located inside select Kroger stores in Indiana, Mississippi, Virginia, Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee and Ohio; King Soopers in Colorado, Fry’s Food Stores in Arizona, Dillons stores in Kansas and JayC stores in Indiana.

SPECIAL SECTIONS FROM The Mechanicsville Local

March 22, 2017

Men In Ministry, a looseknit organization beginning among a number of men in various churches in the late 1980s and early 1990s, was recognized by the Hanover Ruritan Club at its award banquet night. The working group was initiated by men from Shalom and Mechanicsville Baptist Church. Later, several Baptist churches became involved. Since all of those churches worked cooperatively in the Dover Baptist Association, their name became the Dover Men-In-Ministry. Their mission was to help those needing work done on their homes but couldn’t afford to pay a contractor. During the first few years, they took on almost any type job that was requested of them, for example: roofing, bath-

room repairs, floor repairs, siding repairs and painting, plumbing, concrete work as well as the work of constructing wheelchair ramps. Unable to name all of the volunteers who worked with the Men in Ministry but all of them have made significant contributions of their time and talents. Those who served in a leadership role with the group include: Mac Bolton, Bill Callas, Jim Wright, John Munn and the current president Cotton Sizemore. In their early years, John Munn relates a story of one wheelchair ramp that was built for a lady who lived on U.S. 360, confined to her home unable to leave for nearly 10 years. The satisfaction of helping someone in this situation has been the reward for continuing to build ramps. Almost every ramp has a heart-warming story like this often bring

tears to the toughest of them. Over the years the Men-inMinistry has built over 1,200 ramps and there are hundreds of stories like that as shared by John. These ramps are built for people who can’t afford the cost of a contractor. Men-inMinistry ask them to pay for the lumber if they can afford to, unable to pay their family or church may help. If they can’t pay at all, the Men-in-Ministry pays for the ramp. In the past five years, the number of ramps built was 374, 129 removed, and 50-plus rails and repairs. Hanover Ruritan Club President David Balderson extended the club’s thanks to the Men in Ministry for the work they are doing to help the community be a better place to live and honored them with the Hanover Ruritans Community Service Award for 2016.

Kindergarten registration gets It’s shrimp time! Festival set June 3 underway in region April 20 Staff Report news@mechlocal.com

RICHMOND – Thursday, April 20, marks the seventh annual Regional Kindergarten Registration Campaign, coordinated by Smart Beginnings Greater Richmond. This campaign establishes one common registration day for 13 school divisions – that’s 150 elementary schools – in the Richmond region. Children who are 5 years old by Sept. 30 can start kindergarten in the fall, but first they need to be registered. Thursday, April 20, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m is kindergarten registration for Hanover County. To find your attendance zone, visit hcps. us or call 804-365-4500. There is quite a bit of paperwork needed to register a child for kindergarten, and pulling everything together takes time. Parents and caregivers are still encouraged to attend registration even if they do not have all the documents because exceptions could apply. These are the documents needed for registration:  Child’s official, certified birth certificate  Two proofs of address  School Entrance Health Form (This can be turned in any time before the first day of school)  Photo ID for parent or legal guardian While registration rates improved, more than 4,000 children were not registered on time in the spring last year — enough to fill about eight elementary schools. In the Richmond region, one in eight children enter kindergarten already behind in language and literacy skills. This preparation needs

to begin long before a child reaches kindergarten. Smart Beginnings recommends these activities to help children build the skills and confidence they will need to be ready for kindergarten:  Read and look at books every day  Stick to a regular bedtime and wakeup time  Practice counting real objects — like cereal or crayons  Talk about their feelings and what kindergarten will be like  Meet and play with other children their age  Show respect and use good manners  Find and name letters of the alphabet everywhere you go  Visit and explore libraries, parks and museums  Use scissors to practice cutting and crayons to draw There are advantages for parents, children and schools when children are registered on time on April 20:  Parents can get important information that they might otherwise miss;  Schools can adequately prepare for space, staff and materials; and  Teachers can prepare for the child in the classroom. For more information, visit www. SmartBeginningsRVA.org or dial the phone number “2-1-1” and find information specific to their school division.

Raiders start softball season with big bangs By Dave Lawrence Sports Editor MECHANICSVILLE – Atlee’s softball team wasted no time setting off fireworks for its 2017 three-peat campaign. The Raiders scored 12 runs in their first at-bat of the season and coasted from there to a 210 shellacking of visiting Douglas Freeman Friday night. Atlee pitchers Peyton St. George and Rachel Davis worked with a comfortable cushion while combining to hold the Rebels to just one hit. The Raiders’ early offensive onslaught was all part of the game plan. “We talked before we got out here [about having] purpose in every plate appearance,” said Atlee head coach Tom McIntyre. “They did a nice job of following through on that. … A goal we have is to be more explosive offensively and be productive in every at-bat. Tonight we were able to show that.” The Raiders racked up 15 hits. Rachel Davis led the onslaught, going 4-for-4 with two doubles and three RBI. Jordan Durbin was perfect as well, going 3-for-3 with a double. And Peyton St. George went 2-for-3 with two RBI. But Kelly Warren arguably had the most explosive night, going 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and five RBI total.

Atlee’s Sydney Kuester (8) launches a fly ball to score Erin O’Flaherty in the Raiders’ 21-0 shellacking of Douglas Freeman Friday.

“I just went up there and there were runners on base and I was, like, ‘Hey, I’m just going to hit away,’ ” Warren said. “I didn’t really think about it. I just, like, had my timing down and stuff and I just went up

there and swung. I wasn’t trying to hit it over or anything. I just had a nice swing and it went over.” The Rebels (0-1) helped Atlee’s cause with eight errors – most in the first inning. The

Raiders (1-0) defense was solid – as McIntyre hoped it would be. “We talked about setting the tone for ourselves coming out in the first game,” McIntyre said. He said the Raiders need

to guard against putting too much pressure on themselves, though. “What we know about this team is that this team plays

MECHANICSVILLE – Atlee was not so cavalier against Clover Hill’s Cavaliers. The Raiders took advantage of a pair of three-run innings and a three-RBI outing by J.T. Fitzpatrick to shut out Clover Hill 7-0 in both teams’ season opener Friday night. A trio of Atlee pitchers took the mound, with Rob Whitfield going four innings, Carson Box handling the middle relief and Preston Eacho handling the final out. “It was big for us to get that first win under our belt,” said Atlee head coach John Corbin. “I felt like we threw it well. Our defense see OPENER, pg. 35

Soccer teams begin spring with a lot of green By Jonathan Howard For the Mechanicsville Local MECHANICSVILLE – A lack of experience could prove to be an early-season obstacle for several local soccer teams. On the boys’ side, Atlee and King William are missing several contributors from last year’s strong squads. On the other hand, Hanover can point to a roster full of juniors and seniors. For the girls, experience reigns for Atlee and Hanover, which are coming off of strong seasons, while Patrick Henry hopes it will turn a 7-7 season last year into a winning record this year. Lee-Davis and King William are on the opposite end, with more underclassmen than seniors. Boys Atlee head coach Steve Thompson says the strength of the Raiders – who lost 13 seniors from last year’s region tournament team – will be on defense and in the middle of the field. Senior captains Axel Bax and Drew Klesat anchor the back line alongside a pair of new starters, while junior Lane Chaney and senior Jason Peay will provide ball movement and structure in the middle of the field. The biggest growing pains for the young team will come on offense, where Thompson is looking for a player to step up and be the go-to scorer. “Right now we are going by committee trying to find that person,” Thompson said. Hanover head coach Laurent Body can look at his roster and easily point out his team’s strength: experience. The Hawks’ roster is full of juniors and seniors, including seven returning starters.

Patrick Henry players celebrate a goal against Hermitage in the Patriots’ 4-0 victory over the host Panthers Friday.

Grant Davis suffered an injury in preseason that will cause him to miss significant time. Body called Davis an “exceptional and hard-working player.” The Hawks will need to find a replacement in order to find success finding the back of the net. There are several new components to Lee-Davis’ team this season, including head coach Chis Maimone. The first-year head coach returns five starters from last year’s 3-11-2 squad. All five returners are seniors and play in the midfield and on defense. One of those players is Dave Lawrence/The Local Cameron Lohmann, who Douglas Freeman goalkeeper Maddie Mertsch stops a breakaway by Atlee’s Cee Cee Harris in anchors the back line. Maimone front of the Rebel net in Douglas Freeman’s 4-3 victory over the Raiders Friday. named Lohmann one of the top players in the conference. of those returners – Jonathan – play defense, which will be the rock in the midfield.

will be looked upon to lead the offensive attack as strikers. Patrick Henry has only four starters returning from last year’s team – the Patriots lost 14 seniors to graduation last year. Yet the team still boasts 14 seniors with significant playing experience. Citing their ability to possess the ball and control the flow of the game, head coach Daniel McGraw expects the midfield, led by Corey Finchum, to be the strength of the team. Their ability to get the ball accurately into the forward areas to third-year starter Coleman Cheeley will determine the team’s success in improving last year’s scoring output. Anchoring the defense is senior goalkeeper Collin Donaghy, who is reportedly the strongest he’s ever been after participating in an off-season weight program. In order to add a fourth-consecutive Tidewater District title to the trophy case, King William head coach Chris Harris will have to rely on a bevy of new starters. The Cavaliers have a number of seniors on the roster, but few with starting experience. Regardless, Harris said the team’s biggest strength is its patience and ability to be coached, perhaps closing the learning curve for the new players. Three of four returning starters are in the midfield, led by David Slack, who Harris says has the experience and has put in the offseason work to be a major contributor. Zaaron Foster is a freshman to watch in the midfield, while Jeremy Vergara is expected to be a significant contributor at forward after leading the junior varsity in scoring last season. see SOCCER, pg. 35

was pretty solid.” Corbin would have liked to see more out of his offense, though, but was still content with what it accomplished. “The bats didn’t get going, but we got timely hits in certain spots,” he said. “We ran the bases and put a little bit of pressure on them.” The Raiders took advantage of three Clover Hill errors to add to their run total. Atlee got three runs in the second. Clay Naff drew a oneout walk and scored on a Cam Harris double. Adam Jewell waked, and he and Harris advanced on a sacrifice bunt by

Casey Farrar. Harris scored and Jewell advanced on an error, then Jewell came home on a passed ball to make it 3-0. John Kish opened the Atlee fifth with a walk, steals second, and advances to third on a fly to center field by Zack Beach. J.T. Fitzpatrick drove Kish in with a single. With one out in the sixth, Farrar walks and is replaced by courtesy runner Nick Carlo. Jake Martin reaches and Carlo advances to third on an error, then – one out later – Kish walks to load the bases. Beach is hit by a pitch to bring Carlo in, and Martin and Kish score on another Fitzpatrick single.

and come out and just get right into what we do. Continued from pg. 32  “We have a system in place. If they fall right into the sysbetter when it plays loose,” tem and we don’t have a bunch McIntyre said. “So what we look of weird things going on, then Dave Lawrence/The Local for is for them to play relaxed usually they do fine.” Atlee sidearm thrower Carson Box (22) keeps visiting Clover Hill at bay in the Raiders’ 7-0 victory over the Cavaliers Friday.

SOCCER Continued from pg. 34 

Girls Seven starters return to Atlee from last year’s 15-4 squad, and they bring plenty of offensive firepower. Seniors Riley Cook and Syaani Harris (49 combined goals last season) provide the scoring punch for the Raiders and are assisted by Alyse Armentrout and Mary Pat McCombs. For the team to have success again this season, however, head coach Bruce Lovelace says the team will need to overcome the loss of two starters along the back line. The team only allowed 11 goals a year ago, and will look to replicate that success with new defenders. Caroline Jones and Sydney Sears return at defensive back spots while sophomore Nikki Rittenhouse is expected to

start at keeper. Freshman Katie Pierson could also see time at goalie. Hanover only lost two seniors from a team that finished 12-4-2 and went to the conference championship game last year. With only four seniors on this year’s squad, they’re still young. Head coach John Andruss expects the team to be fairly balanced with strong players across the offensive and defensive lines. Rachel Andrejewski scored 28 goals last season and is expected to continue her solid play. Captain Sabrina Hernandez is expected to provide scoring opportunities up front as well. Captain Caroline Drumheller will anchor the defense, and should receive support from Olivia Adams and Summer Hansen. Lee-Davis has a rare roster – no seniors to be found. The Confederates are sophomore

heavy, with 15 of 22 players in their second year of high school. One of those sophomores that head coach Casey Paul feels could make strides in confidence this season is forward/ midfielder Brittany Bessette. Paul expects junior defender Caity Shanes and midfielder Haley Gordon to take control of the team as returning starters. “I’m hoping that they can take their knowledge of the game and bestow it upon the young girls on the team,” Paul said. “I also hope to see them become leaders on and off the field and continue to encourage the girls even when the games aren’t necessarily going our way.” Anna Wright’s Patrick Henry team returns 10 starters from last year’s 7-7 team and sees that as the team’s strength. “We have an experienced team going into this season.”

Wright said. “They seem to have grown a lot from last year so hopefully we will see a more winning record.” The strength of the team will be the defensive side of the ball – where seniors Sophia Basso and Caitlin Rutherford will see time – as well as the midfield. Senior Madison Brown will likely draw the start in goal. The challenge for the Patriots will be finishing scoring opportunities. Juniors Julia LaFortune and Brooke Purcell could solve that problem. King William’s first-year head coach Suzanna Christian has a young team with 10 sophomores making up the majority of the roster. Senior midfielder Nicole Broaddus and junior keeper Jaycie Horner are experienced leaders on an otherwise inexperienced squad. “Both are strong players, respected by their team,

and have demonstrated their strengths as great communicators with mental toughness,” Christian said. Junior defender Margaret Ratcliffe is expected to hold down the back line in front of

Horner. Sophomore forward Coral Sawdy could prove to be the team’s best scoring option up top. Jonathan Howard can be reached at sports@mechlocal. com.

offensive firepower. Junior attacker Emily Flinn put up 26 goals in 2016, and sophomore middie Ryan Peebles added 23. But perhaps the most significant statistic for first-year head coach Taylor Huber is 10. That is the number of starters the Patriots lost from last year’s 6-7 team. With only two seniors on this year’s team – defender Clare Seuss and goalkeeper Andrea Lindgren – 2017 could be a rebuilding year for Patrick Henry. Andrew Spencer can be reached a sports@mechlocal. com.

was pretty solid.” Corbin would have liked to see more out of his offense, though, but was still content with what it accomplished. “The bats didn’t get going, but we got timely hits in certain spots,” he said. “We ran the bases and put a little bit of pressure on them.” The Raiders took advantage of three Clover Hill errors to add to their run total. Atlee got three runs in the second. Clay Naff drew a oneout walk and scored on a Cam Harris double. Adam Jewell waked, and he and Harris advanced on a sacrifice bunt by

Casey Farrar. Harris scored and Jewell advanced on an error, then Jewell came home on a passed ball to make it 3-0. John Kish opened the Atlee fifth with a walk, steals second, and advances to third on a fly to center field by Zack Beach. J.T. Fitzpatrick drove Kish in with a single. With one out in the sixth, Farrar walks and is replaced by courtesy runner Nick Carlo. Jake Martin reaches and Carlo advances to third on an error, then – one out later – Kish walks to load the bases. Beach is hit by a pitch to bring Carlo in, and Martin and Kish score on another Fitzpatrick single.

Girls Seven starters return to Atlee from last year’s 15-4 squad, and they bring plenty of offensive firepower. Seniors Riley Cook and Syaani Harris (49 combined goals last season) provide the scoring punch for the Raiders and are assisted by Alyse Armentrout and Mary Pat McCombs. For the team to have success again this season, however, head coach Bruce Lovelace says the team will need to overcome the loss of two starters along the back line. The team only allowed 11 goals a year ago, and will look to replicate that success with new defenders. Caroline Jones and Sydney Sears return at defensive back spots while sophomore Nikki Rittenhouse is expected to

start at keeper. Freshman Katie Pierson could also see time at goalie. Hanover only lost two seniors from a team that finished 12-4-2 and went to the conference championship game last year.

What is Multiple Sclerosis?

M

ultiple sclerosis, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system, interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women

than men being diagnosed with the disease. ▶ MS affects more than 2.3 million people worldwide. ▶ MS is not contagious and is not directly inherited. ▶ Most individuals with MS have near-normal life expectancies, and most learn to cope with the disease and are able to live productive lives. ▶ The cause of MS and how we can stop progression, restore function, and ultimately end MS forever, are the sub-

jects of intensive worldwide research. ▶ Numerous FDA-approved medications have been shown to effective in reducing disease activity in relapsing forms of MS. ▶ MS is different from muscular dystrophy (MD), which is a group of disorders that cause progressive and irreversible wasting away of muscle tissue. Although MD has some symptoms in common with MS—such as weakness and problems with walking—MD affects the muscles directly while MS affects the central nervous system.

MS Research in Virginia

The National MS Society recently awarded over $1.4 million dollars to 2 new MS research studies in Virginia. Professor Jonathan Kipnis and his colleagues at the University of Virginia are investigating the initiation of immune attach in the meninges, which is a layer of tissues surrounding the brain and the spinal cord. In mouse models of relapsing and progressive MS (EAE), the team is studying the circulation of cells between the meninges and the deep cervical lymph nodes and assessing when and how the signal that triggers and activates destructive immune T cells is being delivered. Using pharmacological, genetic and biochemical approaches, the team will focus on understanding the roles of the meningeal lymphatic system in regulating immune responses, and how it impacts the initiation, progression and severity of MS-like disease in mice. They will also attempt to manipulate this system to interrupt the disease process. Dr. Carmen Sato-Bigbee and her team at Virginia Commonwealth University have found two docking sites that work together to control the generation of oligodendrocytes. These docking sites interact with endorphin and nociception, two molecules that are present at different levels in the brain and spinal cord. The team is now investigating how these docking sites are involved in remyelination, and whether they would be good targets for the development of a therapy to stimulate myelin repair. The studies will involve novel mouse models to understand if these molecules work alone or in association to exert their action in the oligodendrocytes and myelin synthesis. The team will also examine cerebrospinal fluid and brain samples from people with relapsing-remitting, secondary-progressive, and primaryprogressive MS to understand the activities of these docking sites during disease. The National MS Society also awarded Gaultier Alban at the University of Virginia a Pilot Research Grant. This grant will allow his team to test whether the composition of gut bacteria contributes to depression in people with MS. They found that lactobacillus, a beneficial bacteria, is reduced in mice with MS-like disease. Reconstituting the gut flora with lactobacillus can correct signs of depression in these mice. Now they are examining these findings further in mouse models of MS, to determine whether other strains of bacteria can prevent or contribute to depression. This study may help to develop affordable and natural treatments like the administration of probiotics or food supplements to decrease depression in people with MS. Money raised at our events such as Bike MS and Walk MS allow us to fund promising research not only in Virginia and West Virginia, but throughout the country.

Can Do Multiple Sclerosis Webinars Keeping an Eye on MS

The three main visual problems that can occur in MS are: • Optic neuritis

• Double vision • Nystagmus (or jumping eyes) Medical treatment for the sudden onset of optic neuritis, double vision, or nystagmus is often steroids, which help accelerate the recovery of the visual problem. But in some individuals the visual problems may not fully recover and may become permanent. Vision rehabilitation strategies to address double vision include

prisms and/or temporary occlusion until double vision resolves. Central vision loss resulting from optic neuritis responds optimally to magnification and contrast enhancement of viewed objects. The strategies and technologies that allow individuals to maintain optimal function after permanent vision loss from MS will be explored. Please join M. Tariq Bhatti, MD; Professor of Ophthlamology,

Keeping an Eye on MS Webinar May 9 at 8 p.m.

Neurology and Neurosurgery and Division Chief of NeuroOphthlamology from the Duke Eye Center and Duke University Medical Center, and Diane B. Whitaker, OD; Division Chief of Vision Rehabilitation at the Duke Eye Center, as they discuss vision problems in MS and resources available for people with low vision. Attendance is limited to the first 1,000 registrants that login to the webinar on May 9th.

long with the brain, brainstem, and spinal cord, the eye - in particular the optic nerve - is part of the central nervous system (CNS). The reason visual problems are very common in multiple sclerosis (MS) is because MS is a disease of the CNS.

▶ Protect mobility devices from damage while in flight with a cover (e.g., sleeves for wheelchair frames). ▶ If you use a removable wheelchair cushion, bring it with you on board the airplane to be sure it is not lost or damaged. ▶ If you need special assistance, inform the airline gate agent upon check-in.

seating options for passengers traveling with wheeled mobility devices, depending on the type of device. ▶ Amtrak also has “accessible rooms” for passengers with disabilities. These rooms are available on a first-come, first-serve basis and should be booked 14 days in advance. ▶ If you require a companion or an attendant while traveling, check for companion fare or discounted tickets. ▶ Passengers who use oxygen equipment can bring the equipment onboard trains with certain restrictions.

Train ▶ Accessible space and seats are available on coach, business class and first class train cars. On Amtrak for example, there are two different onboard

Hotels ▶ Look for a “guaranteed ADA” room when booking. ▶ Check the room for any barriers at check-in. A room

can be ADA compliant but that does not mean that there will not be any mobility barriers. ▶ If you have difficulty pushing a manual chair, request a room near the elevators or on the first floor.

Ground Transportation ▶ Search for taxi or rental companies with wheelchair accessible vehicles. Visit mv1.us/mv-1s-for-hire for an interactive map that highlights cities with MV-1 vehicles in their taxi and rental car fleets. Don’t let mobility or accessibility concerns inhibit your vacation or trip. With some preparation, travel can be comfortable and stress-free. - Statepoint
