OPINION | The Local Views

LETTERS

From the managing editor

| Reader Views

After 25 years, his advice mattered most By Melody Kinser Managing Editor A tie. That’s the last Father’s Day gift I purchased for Dad just weeks before he suddenly died. He was buried wearing that tie. I was living in Bluefield at the time and had gone to my parents’ home to celebrate Father’s Day on Sunday, June 21, 1992. Within weeks, we would learn my father’s fate: lung cancer. He died on July 7. On social media, I’ve seen several family and friends acknowledging the significance their fathers had or have in their lives as they’ve commented and even changed their profile photo for the annual observance. For some reason, that tie came to mind the other night as sleep approached. Soon, it will have been 25 years since Dad left us. He is in our

thoughts every day. What an exceptional man he was. He loved God, his church, his family, his friends, his community and life. A big man, I’ve often described him as a “gentle giant;” he had a deep voice and was a “man’s man.” He could fix anything and solve any problem — that’s how “Daddy’s little girl” saw him. The first Father’s Day after his death I wrote a column about still picking up the phone to seek his advice. His guidance stood above the rest. Dad was very intelligent and strong, yet, when it came to my mother, he was a big ol’ softie. They had celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary on Dec. 29, 1991, and renewed their vows. My sister and I had no idea when we planned the party that he wouldn’t be around for their 50th. Mom was his sweetheart and they were like teenagers even as he took his last breath. That

kind of love is blessed and enduring. My mother never considered another man in her life after Dad died. She says they will be reunited one day. Dad was the big kid in our neighborhood. It wasn’t unusual for some of the local boys to come to the house and ask Mom if “Big D could come out and play.” His name was Dallas, but the nickname (I’m not even sure how it started) stuck. I think of the people he helped as a licensed electrician — never charging for his services. His belief in taking care of others extended to establishing a food pantry at our home church. Thousands are fed every year. The years don’t ease the loss. Dad is missed by so many. When my sister passed away in 2011, I hoped that he greeted her. There is nobody like dad in a girl’s life. He is the one man in her life who always loves her.

House is too quiet without the sounds of children By Jim Ridolphi Contributing Columnist It was too quiet around here. Normally, finding a peaceful spot in my home is more than elusive, but, last week, the silence was deafening. Jack had departed for his annual trip to MDA Camp in Wakefield, and Sophie was on her graduation trip to New York City. At one point, she was

getting a pedicure near Times Square, a well deserved pampering supplied by her older sister. Emma has been busy with end of year parties with her friends, and taking part in an exciting last week of school. For most parents, the thought of a few days of peace and solitude seems inviting, and I won’t deny having time

kids to young adults also provides a dose of reality for the parents who love them.

Tackling the issue of whether elected school board works If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Should we consider the letter as irrefutable first-hand proof that an elected taxpayer has ambitions bigger than their abilities and not a good fit for a Hanover County School Board member? How about we say Hanover voters are not qualified to make good choices at the polls? If either of or both cases are true, Hanover County leaders are smart dudes not to have an elected person on the school board. I can’t believe having an elected Hanover taxpayer on the board would be so dumb, dumb, dumb? If that’s the case, over 90% of elected school boards in the USA are staffed with incapable elected taxpayers. This also includes the more than 80% elected school boards in Virginia. That being said, I see no other way to protect our school board from elected taxpayers except maybe to go with the Trump plan of appointing people with personal loyalty and the knowledge that “If I appoint you, I can disappoint you” and “It’s my way or the highway”. We can do the Centralism thing as I understand it works well in other countries. Being a Dodge Ram owner I used to say Ford trucks were no good and then one day I was asked if I ever had one. Well, no, but I’m sure they’re no good. The letter had a one-liner trivia question and I wonder if others got it correct without looking at the answer? (Question was) Which county has a waiting list of people wanting to become its residence (residents)? I had the answer as soon as I read the question. see LETTERS, pg. 8

But, it’s also a time to realize that these special days won’t last forever, and, one day, our children do leave the safety and security of home and venture out into the world to pursue their set of dreams. It’s almost a classic Catch 22 for parents. The thought of not packing lunches or doing endless loads of laundry seems appealing, but it’s a thought always tinged

AMSA receives National Main Street accreditation ASHLAND – The Ashland Main Street Association (AMSA) has been designated as an accredited Main Street America™ program for meeting rigorous performance standards set by the National Main Street Center. Each year, the National Main Street Center and its Coordinating Program partners announce the list of accredited Main Street America programs in recognition of their exemplary commitment to preservation-based economic development and community revitalization through the Main Street Approach®. “It is a great honor to recognize this year’s 828 nationally Accredited Main Street America programs for their outstanding work to transform downtown and neigh-

borhood commercial districts,” Patrice Frey, president & CEO of the National Main Street Center, said. “Main Streets are the heart of our communities, and the work they do to create quality public spaces, catalyze local entrepreneurship, and support downtown housing is more important than ever. Across the country, Main Street America programs truly strengthen the economic, social, and cultural fabric of their entire communities.” AMSA’s performance is annually evaluated by the Virginia Main Street Program, which works in partnership with the National Main Street Center to identify the local programs that meet 10 performance standards. Evaluation criteria determines the communities that are building comprehensive and sustainable revitalization efforts and include standards

such as fostering strong publicprivate partnerships, securing an operating budget, tracking programmatic progress and actively preserving historic buildings. “We are proud to have received National Main Street Accreditation for the fourth consecutive year,” said AMSA Executive Director Tom Wulf. “This recognition, in conjunction with our Virginia Main Street Designation, allows us access to a wealth of resources from state and federal programs that would not be available otherwise. Since our designation in 2013, we have applied for and earned selected grants and services valued at more than $220,000. These are our tax dollars coming back into the community.” Wulf announced several changes to the Ashland Main Street Board of Directors. The board added three new

members to three-year terms: Chris Zaldivar of Hometown Realty, Courtney Rowe, a graduate of the Ashland Citizen Leadership Academy, and Mike Hildebrand, owner of James River Nursery and donor of the holiday tree for AMSA’s annual Light Up the Tracks event. Three members are rotating off the board after serving two terms as required by

AMSA by-laws: Hugh Joyce, past board president who was instrumental in the efforts to revitalize and reopen the Ashland Theatre; Jennifer Chambers, Promotions Committee chair and editor/ publisher of Get Centered; and Darrell Leftwich, who served five consecutive years as board treasurer. Joyce and Chambers will continue to serve as board members of the Ashland

Theater Foundation. Leftwich will continue to serve as the chair of the Ashland Economic Development Authority. “Hugh, Jen and Darrell have made significant contributions to the community through AMSA ,” Wulf said. “We have some big shoes to fill with their departures, but I’m confident our new board members will help lead AMSA to even greater see AMSA, pg. 22

Students want grading scale to be retroactive By Jim Ridolphi for The Mechanicsville Local ASHLAND — Apparently a recent change to a 10-point grading scale didn’t go far enough for some Hanover County students. The revamped system goes into effect this fall, but does not consider grades obtained up to that point. Some speakers at last week’s Hanover County School Board meeting urged members to make the policy retroactive. All of the students said they endorse the move and are thankful for the 10-point system, but were unhappy with the prospect of transcripts being considered under two grading scales. Several students who spoke during the public comment

section of the meeting said the retroactive change could mean a difference of about two points to their current Grade Point Averages (GPAs). Ella Lauritzen is a rising junior at Patrick Henry High School, and encouraged board members to make the policy retroactive. “I would like to get the grading scale retroactive because I’ve worked very, very hard my sophomore year, and I feel like it would help me get into more colleges,” Larson said. Gavin Roland, also a junior at PHHS, echoed those sentiments, and Ella Gaskin said a retroactive 10-point scale would more accurately reflect her grades and hard work. School board members also received an update on

professional development for teachers and staff within the school system. Dana Gresham and Amy Thompson head Hanover’s efforts to keep its teachers upto-date and well informed on the latest innovations in and outside of the classroom by offering a variety of professional development sessions throughout the year. In the last school year alone, 181 classes or seminars were offered and more than 400 are available during summer months, many of them taught by Hanover teachers who have qualified in specialized and innovative areas. School board members also recognized this year’s Teacher of the Year, Beginning Teacher of the Year and Support

Schools since 1996. Amanda Williams, a math teacher at Oak Knoll Middle School, was named Beginning Teacher of the Year. Williams is a VCU alum and impressed her principal Carolyn Harris who described her as having a “natural compassion that

draws students.” Kay Loving was named 2017 Support Employee of the Year as the board recognized her role as custodian at Cool Spring Elementary School. She has worked with HCPS since see GRADING, pg. 19

ASHLAND/WESTERN HANOVER | Also serving the communities of Montpelier, Beaverdam, Rockville and Doswell

Johnson looks back on ministry Gospel legend takes part in Juneteenth celebration with musical talent By Logan Barry for The Mechanicsville Local ASHLAND — Known as a gospel legend, Bubba Johnson reflected on and sung about 50 years of his gospel ministry at a Juneteenth celebration that was cosponsored by The Hanover County Black Heritage Society Inc. on Sunday, June 11, at Randolph-Macon College’s Blackwell Auditorium in Ashland. “Juneteenth” is a term that has been given to a series of numerous types of celebrations, taking place over multiple days that are held around the nation, honoring the historical day that the last enslaved people in North America were freed in the

United States by Abraham Lincoln’s signature on the Emancipation Proclamation. Johnson, who was born and raised in Montpelier, comes from a long line of talented musicians. His talented encompasses being able to play the piano, the electronic keyboard and the organ. The master musician also sings. When Johnson reached the age of 17, his voice had gained popularity among local churches in different areas of the county such as Ashland, Montpelier and Beaverdam – but his singing talent also was familiar throughout churches in Richmond. By the time he was 22, he had discovered his ability to write music and lyrics, so

he began to organize writing arrangements and started to compose music. Over time, the musically-gifted younger Johnson wrote over 101 songs before his first CD was published in 2001, entitled “Bubba Johnson and Company.” On Sept. 17, 2016, half a century later, Johnson proudly released his 4th project in his collection, “My 50 Mile Journey.” In addition to his gospel performance at the June 11 event, the Juneteenth program was a 50-year reminiscence of his life as well as the musical impact he’s had on the community. Alphine Jefferson, president of The

Adventurous travels keep Hughes seeking thrills and excitement By Logan Barry for The Mechanicsville Local

A

SHLAND — It is not shocking — at least not for anyone who has met Hayden Hughes — to learn that he just returned home from longboarding around South and Central America, the same group of countries he has been travelling across for two months via his longboard, feet, hitchhiking and little public transportation. The Montpelier resident and graduate of Patrick Henry High School and James Madison University embarked on yet another journey earlier this spring to not only a different country,

16

but the 17 foreign countries that help make up mainland Latin America. Once he reached the U.S.Mexican border, he made his way back up the coast to the Old Dominion. On Saturday, April 15, Hughes flew from Richmond International Airport to Asunción, the capital of Paraguay, which is located right in the heart of the continent – in the world’s southern hemisphere. When it comes to travelling far without a motor, Hughes is no amateur. It all started when he was an undergraduate at JMU. During his years as a lower classman, he quickly devised

plans to peddle his bicycle from Virginia Beach to the West Coast. The following year, Hughes, along with a close friend from JMU, J Keagy, of Chantilly, kayaked from Virginia to the Gulf of Mexico through streams,

lakes and rivers. Hughes and Keagy then longboarded across Australia from Melbourne to Sydney. It’s safe to say that Hughes is a seasoned traveler in unfamiliar places, especially while lacking the usual hospitalities that accompany most. He has

a few notches under his belt. Items that Hughes carries with him along his way include: a backpack, hammock, sleeping bag, “some clothes,” and a longboard. His top destinations he wanted to see were: Brazil, the Andes see HUGHES, pg. 17 

ASHLAND — In order to collect citizen input about the proposed Ashland Town Hall project, a public input meeting will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, July 11, and Wednesday, July 26, at Town Hall at 101 Thompson St. in Ashland. There will not be a scheduled presentation. Instead, those who attend will have the opportunity to ask town staff and representatives from PMA Architecture questions about the recently completed study of Town Hall and its future. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided.

Pointing out that he is widely known along the East Coast, Johnson said, “But I also do a lot of gospel at the churches here – I do a lot of church events; people just call me for all sorts of things, religiously.� However, he doesn’t limit his musical talent to churches. “I even did something at a bar, I was invited to Cary 100 to perform some gospel

there – it was the first time that I ever did that before; but it was successful, they had Bloody Marys,� Johnson said jokingly. Cary 100 is a restaurant and lounge on Cary Street in Richmond that serves lunch and hosts live entertainment and other events on a weekly basis. “I was received very well there.� As Jefferson mentioned, Johnson’s unique insights are a part of what attracts his audience. “I can feel it when people need something,� he said, referring to fans he sees at his concerts. In an interview after the June 11 celebration, Johnson said, “One example is something that happened to me tonight. I had a 14-year-old girl come up to me, I was giving autographs, and I could feel this little girl keep tapping me,

and she asked me ‘Can I speak with you?’ � “I said, ‘Of course,’ and she was hugging me and she was talking into my ear – she said, ‘I know I am young, but I am just going through so many problems and I just couldn’t deal with them,’ but she said ‘After tonight, you don’t know how you’ve blessed me, and how much of a difference you’ve made in my life tonight, I just need a hug from you’. That hasn’t ever been said to me in my whole life.� “I was honored for a lot of things tonight, but that in itself really honored me tonight,� Johnson said. Johnson graduated from Patrick Henry High School and became a substitute teacher there as well as a school bus driver for a time. The celebration of Juneteenth began in Galveston, Texas, on June 19, 1865. On

that day, which was 2½ years after President Lincoln’s legislation ordering the freedom of all American slaves went into effect, African-Americans who were in Galveston learned that they were finally free by order of this document. The Hanover County Black Heritage Society is a local nonprofit organization and community group that is dedicated to the collection and the preservation of all kinds of documents, memorabilia, artifacts, photographs and pictures in addition to both public and private information that are related to the history of African-Americans in Hanover County. In the words of Johnson’s personal motto, “The beat is nice, but listen to the words to hear the ministry. As God’s humble servant, I thank you for 50 years of encouragement and support.â€?

Hughes a $100 gift card upon his return if he accomplished the expedition. LongBoardLarry, an Oregon-based company that makes and sells longboards, also sponsored Hughes with a custom-designed longboard. Hughes and Keagy’s brother Sam designed the artwork that went on the bottom of the board. Hughes kept his family and friends back home updated via social media during the bicontinental trip. His Facebook page is loaded with photos and

details from along his distant journey, as he was making his way back over 14,000 miles to the United States with the goal of hitting every country on the continent except for Venezuela, Guyana, French Guiana and Suriname. Unlikely of Hughes but smart in his decision, he listened to concerns voiced by family members and close

friends not to enter Venezuela. The U.S. State Department has listed a travel warning on the country, which was last updated on Dec. 15, 2016, due to violent crime, unrest in social structure, shortages in medicine, and pervasive food issues. Venezuela has one of the highest rates in crime, including homicides, in the

Directors Judy Myers and Sherry Webb are shown with teachers Laurie Thompson, Kim Reynolds and Jane Newcomb and the students from the last preschool class at the Church of the Creator Preschool in Mechanicsville, which closed after 46 years of students passing through the doors. The school was described as “a loving, fun and safe place for hundreds of children.” Preschoolers learned about reading, science, math, music, art, drama and countless other things in a nurturing environment. Creator Preschool was the first preschool in Hanover County to receive a NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) accreditation in the 1990s. The many parents of Creator Preschool children, both current and former, expressed their sincere thanks for the countless hours the teachers devoted to their enrichment and education. As retired Hanover County early childhood special education teacher Susan Chenault said, “The directors, teachers, assistants, parents all had a heart for doing what is best for all children. There was never a child too difficult or too challenging for Creator to say ‘yes’ to. They served as likely the first ‘unofficial inclusion’ site for preschoolers with developmental delays. They made it work because they saw abilities, not disabilities, and were always willing to go the extra mile to see that all children were successful, regardless of what it took from them.”

2008. The board also heard a presentation from Smart Beginnings, a regional effort to prepare youths aged 0-5 for school by encouraging parental involvement and strengthening early development ties with local schools. Monica Callahan, director of outreach and development, told board members that early childhood involvement is an investment that pays big dividends. “It’s important to get it right from the beginning,” Callahan said. “They are ready to learn at an early so investing early

makes good sense.” Smart Beginnings is committed to ensuring that every child has a fair and equitable start. Executive director said that 90 percent of a child’s brain is developed before they reach kindergarten. The agency is a cooperative regional effort that includes 10 jurisdictions in the Greater Richmond area.

Life in prison recommended for killing wife with hammer By Sean Gorman Richmond Times-Dispatch HANOVER — A Hanover County jury recommended a life sentence for Harshadkumar Jadav on Thursday after finding him guilty of first-degree murder in the fatal beating of his wife, Reena Jadav. Jurors deliberated for just more than two hours before convicting the defendant of murdering his 30-year-old wife with a hammer in their Honey Meadows neighborhood last September. Harshadkumar Jadav, 34, will be sentenced on Sept. 14. The victim’s father expressed his gratitude to the jury after the verdict was read. “You are angels sent by God,� said Chandra Shrestha. The victim’s mother, Sumitra Shrestha, REENA JADAV told jurors she misses her daughter every minute of every day. She addressed her daughter while speaking on the stand. “Please come to my dreams, so I can see you and hug you,� Sumitra Shrestha said. Jadav, who testified after the sentence was read, told the court that he had been “hunted� by police. He also said he had lost his job and his house and that he has been in jail for the past nine months. “I’m 100 percent sure I didn’t do it,� Jadav said. Shari Skipper, Hanover’s chief deputy commonwealth’s attorney, noted to jurors that the defendant spent a lot time focusing on himself. “You heard the defendant testify; who is he concerned with?� Skipper said. The prosecutor asked jurors to take into account the brutality of the attack. As Skipper noted that the victim had suffered at least 15 blows, the prosecutor motioned with her arm to demonstrate the way the strikes would have been delivered. “What a horrible way for Reena Jadav to die,� Skipper said. “Don’t let him be in society again.� Reena Jadav’s body was found on a Mechanicsville lawn on Sept. 5, one street over from where she lived with her husband. Two days after Jadav’s body was found, a woman who lives off U.S. 301, a couple of miles from the

Jadavs’ home, came upon a hammer and clothes strewn at the edge or her property while mowing her lawn. She turned the items over to police. Skipper noted during closing arguments Thursday that the hammer had Reena Jadav’s blood on it. A pair of men’s underwear plucked from the property had DNA from Harshadkumar Jadav and his wife on it, Skipper noted. And when he was arrested on Sept. 12, the defendant had a backpack with another pair of underwear that was the same size and brand as the one found in the yard, Skipper said. Vaughan Jones, Jadav’s attorney, said there were multiple flaws in the prosecution’s case. The defense attorney accused the police of conducting an incomplete investigation. The pair of underwear found on the woman’s lawn along with the hammer, Jones said, HARSHADKUMAR JADAV had not only the defendant’s and the victim’s DNA on it, but also the DNA of a third person. He suggested the items could have been discarded by someone other than his client. Many items collected were not sent to a state crime lab for analysis, Jones said. For example, a backpack that prosecutors said had blood on it was not sent for testing, Jones said. The defense attorney suggested that perhaps the woman had been robbed, noting that her wedding ring hadn’t been located. Jones also took issue with the fact that there was no testing done to determine whether Reena Jadav had been sexually assaulted. The defense attorney also noted that his client was found to have little blood on him at all when police found him at the crime scene. “Whoever committed this crime was covered in blood,� Jones said. And there also was lack of blood evidence from the couple’s home and their two vehicles, Jones said. “Where in the world is that evidence?� Jones asked. The prosecutor showed jurors a photo of the defendant’s hands when he was arrested, noting that he also had no wedding ring. That’s because he and his wife been arguing and neither was wearing their wedding ring, Skipper said, add-

ing that Reena Jadav was not robbed. The prosecutor also said there was no indication of any sexual assault, noting that the woman was found fully clothed. Regarding the absence of blood from the couple’s home and cars, Skipper said the murder didn’t happen in those locations. Instead it happened on the grass where she was found, Skipper said.

lawn, he showed no emotion. “Why is a husband so calm when that’s how he finds his wife?” Skipper said. Jadav, during his sentencing, said people display emotion in different ways, adding that he does have remorse. Skipper honed in on cell phone data showing that the defendant’s cell phone started traveling out of his Honey Meadows neighborhood just after 11:30 p.m. on Sept. 4 and over to an area a couple of miles away where the hammer and clothes were found. Jones suggested the evidence only shows that his phone was on the move, not his client. Although Jadav claimed he went to sleep the night before, his Google Chrome browser history showed he was instead awake and surfing

the web, Skipper said. “He was awake because he had just killed his wife,” Skipper said, adding “He says he’s asleep, but he’s up all night.” Skipper reiterated the prosecution’s theory that Jadav had “a million reasons” to kill his wife — a reference to the $1,025,000 in benefits from three insurance policies his wife had through her new employer, Regions Bank in Nashville, Tennessee. Harshadkumar Jadav was the beneficiary on all three policies. Skipper also cited testimony of two women who said that they met the defendant through a dating website and that he told them he wanted to settle down and was looking for his life partner. Skipper said that before one of the women would come over to his house, he would hide his

wife’s belongings. Jones, who at the outset of the four-day trial acknowledged that Jadav was unfaithful, said that didn’t mean he was guilty of the crime. Jones also said his client didn’t know about the policies before his wife’s death, but prosecutors disputed that. After his wife’s death, the defendant didn’t show up to a ceremony at Virginia Beach where his wife’s ashes were scattered, Skipper said. Instead, he went home, cleaned out her items from the house and took them to Goodwill, the prosecutor said. Less than a week before, Skipper said Jadav had left his wife beaten and in a pool of blood. “She was no longer wanted,” Skipper said. “She was discarded.”

world. Guyana, French Guiana and Suriname are three smaller countries that are tucked beside Venezuela to the east, between the Atlantic Ocean and Brazil. The direction of the route that Hughes was travelling meant that he would have to pass through Venezuela in order to enter those countries, leading him to take a pass on them as well. So, what has Hughes bee doing for two months on a

longboard in Latin America? As people who have been following his social media updates already know, it’s nothing short from thrilling. From his air landing in Paraguay where he first arrived, Hughes travelled over 3,000 miles through the countries of Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina using buses, skating on his longboard, and hitchhiking on the back of a motorcycle. He then found himself in Ushuaia, nicknamed the “end of the world,” for being the southernmost city on Earth. It is located on the tip of beautiful Patagonia,

a region that comprises the southern section of the Andes Mountains as well as deserts and grasslands. In Chile, Hughes came upon another journeyer while travelling through the Chilean Atacama Desert, who lent him his sand-board. Over a voice call using Facebook Messenger, Hughes said sand-boarding was a lot of fun, but it’s different than what people are used to doing at a ski resort. “It’s way different from snowboarding because the friction [from the sand] makes momentum everything,” he said. After he finished exploring the southern portion of the continent, Hughes started making his way north to continue the 10,000-mile trek he had left, and over a dozen countries that remained on his target list, including home sweet home. He made his way to Bolivia, where he experienced border issues regarding his tourist visa, which created an additional obstacle regarding his access to public transpor-

tation in the country. After issues with his tourist visa were resolved, Hughes descended the famous “Death Road” on a bicycle he obtained, breaking the speed limit, passing vehicles, riding through waterfalls, and sliding on loose gravel on “heartpounding cliffs.” “I then got caught by police, tricked them, and snuck out of Bolivia [and] into Peru,” Hughes said. For Mother’s Day, Hughes’ mother, Sheri Brooks Hughes, flew down to visit her son while he was in the midst of his South American adventure. “My mom came and visited me in South America. We saw howler monkeys, macaw parrots, endangered giant otters and a caiman alligator while canoeing through the Amazon rain forest. We also hiked over 15 miles to the lost Incan city of Machu Pichu in a cloud forest of the Peruvian Andes on Mother’s Day,” he said in a Facebook post on his timeline, dated May 17. When Hughes’ mother left

to return to Virginia, he continued travelling north, passing through Ecuador and then Colombia until he reached the port city of Cartagena, on the nation’s Caribbean coast. In an interview using Facebook Messenger on May 31, Hughes said he caught a ride on a sailboat in Cartagena, and he had just recently arrived in Panama. During the sailboat trip, Hughes said, “We played volleyball, went snorkeling around shipwrecks, and got close to a dolphin – it was just so much fun.” There is no direct roadway leading from Colombia to Panama due to the Darien Gap, a large swath of undeveloped marshland and forest within Panama’s Darién province that formed a break in the Pan-American Highway. “Because of the Darién Gap . . . I just sailed for five days from Cartagena, Colombia, to Panama through the Caribbean and San Blas Islands. It was the trip of a lifetime,” Hughes said in a May 31 Facebook post.

Panama begins the region of Central America that connects both western continents together. The area also is referred to as the Isthmus, and is the home place to the famous example of human engineering capability, the Panama Canal. Halfway through Central America, in Nicaragua, Hughes went volcano-boarding and surfing off the country’s Pacific Coast, where smashed into rocks. Hughes hit the rest of the Central American countries that were left on his destination map, making sure to get some kayaking in while he crossed through Guatemala and some exploring of the Mayan Ruins while he was in Belize, then his compass pointed only one direction: north. Homesick, he continued through Mexico into the U.S. until he reached Montpelier, where he has only one month to prepare for his next journey —across Europe from Portugal to Istanbul, Turkey, on the edge of Asia.

Planning Commission moves ahead on 4 projects By Logan Barry for The Mechanicsville Local ASHLAND — Four public hearings dominated last Wednesday’s meeting of the Ashland Planning Commission at Ashland Town Hall. Discussed were a conditional use permit (CUP), a town zoning ordinance, and two rezoning applications. Despite suggestions from town staff, all four matters were recommended for approval, and all motions carried and will proceed to Ashland Town Council.

ORD2017-04 (Auto Distribution Use) Planning Commissioners reviewed and discussed a text amendment that was filed by Tom Evans of Southwood Building Systems Inc. requesting to add “automobile distribution” as a use in “limited industrial” (M-1) zoning, allowing for automobile repossession or towing companies to operate in M1 zoning areas. The ordinance was voted on and approved unanimously by commissioners. Action was required in order to permit a subsequent CUP request-

Town staff recommended denial of Ficarra’s CUP until he could provide enough detail in his plan’s layout for the town to determine its compatibility with Ashland’s code, comprehensive plan, proffers, and other conditions that were raised.

Marlins, Barracudas win GRAL openers By Dave Lawrence and Caroline Naumann Mechanicsville Local MECHANICSVILLE – It was close, but the Mechanicsville Marlins eked out a win in their Greater Richmond Aquatic League season opener against visiting Kings Charter Thursday night. The Marlins edged the Tidal Waves 1015-973, but the key point for both teams is that a number of their younger swimmers got their first meet experience and others showed tremendous improvements in their times from previous years. “We’ve gained a lot of young 8 and unders – 10 and unders, honestly,” said Mechanicsville head coach Ari Brothers. “I think this season will go really well. … It will be fun.” Kings Charter head coach Tristan Amatruda said his team has gone through a lot of change as well. “We’ve had kind of a unique and big shift this year with a lot of families that have been on the team for several years [moving] out of the neighborhood … and we’ve had a lot of new – and young, in most cases – families that have moved into the neighborhood, so it’s been interesting,” Amatruda said. “We’ve had this influx of a ton of new kids, some with swimming backgrounds and some not with swimming backgrounds.”

Lambert takes one for team in Post 175 win By Dave Lawrence Sports Editor MECHANICSVILLE – Sometimes you hit the ball. Sometimes the ball hits you. Mechanicsville Post 175 right fielder Canon Lambert used both experiences to advantage in the team’s American Legion season opener at LeeDavis Thursday night, driving in Mechanicsville’s first run with a single, then getting hit by a pitch with bases loaded to bring home the winning run in the 11th inning for a 6-5 victory over visiting West End Post 361. Lambert stole a bit of thunder from teammate Trey Karnes, who led Lee-Davis last season by getting hit by pitch and who was hit twice himself Thursday night. Karnes didn’t mind. “I was just glad for the win, no matter who hit it or who did it,” Karnes said. Karnes finished with a 2-of3 night for a run and three RBI. Lambert finished 2-of-4 for three RBI. Both combined for three RBI in the ninth to send the game into extra innings. With Mechanicsville trailing 5-2, Dalton Davis opened the bottom of the ninth with a

certain conditions and proffers that staff had provided them with. Ficarra said he was under the impression that they had come to an agreement on all the requirements that were raised during the last meeting. Commissioner Charles Selden asked Ficarra if updating their plan to meet the landscaping proffers and other conditions outlined by Prior would be a deal-breaker for his company. “No, what that staff recommendation is ... that’s exactly what we agreed to. We are in 100 percent agreement about that,” Ficarra said. There also were concerns brought to the attention of the town by adjacent business owners to the site being requested for a CUP.

Jackson Gibbons Condlin, PLC, represented the owners of 340 S. Hill Carter Pkwy., and was present at last week’s meeting. Concerns raised by the adjacent business owners, included: no barbed wire fences that are viewable from the street, increased buffers along the southern edge of the property, an asphalt parking area, high-quality brick on façade and sides, no repossessed vehicles in sight of road and no vehicles larger than a standard passenger vehicle are permitted to be stored on the property. In part of Ficarra’s presentation to the commission, he provided members with pictures from other businesses in Ashland that have poorly repaired asphalt that is cracking due to heavy trucks constantly driving on it, causing water to accumulate. He explained how having gravel instead of asphalt for a

business such as his would be more ideal. “You’d have to replace the asphalt every five years or so, and most of the businesses around here don’t replace the asphalt, they repair it,” noting how repairing the asphalt results in what the pictures in his slideshow illustrated. He also said that the 25foot landscape buffer around his parcel of land that he’d be complying with would screen any sight of a barbed wire fence from outside of the property. Ficarra’s CUP was approved for recommendation by the Planning Commission after a 3-2 vote; Planning Commissioners Bob Flanagan and Lou Ann Jewell, chairwoman, voted against an approval recommendation. “If I could just comment [real] quickly just to have it on the record – the reason for my vote, was to see some of that taken care of, getting those

conditions [and] everything in to place before town council got it, and, again, part of my concern was a bit of the location but [the] overall business model, and plan – and some of what I’m hearing about is kind of exciting,” commented Flanagan. REZ16-1220 (Farmland Development) Yancey Jones, the applicant, filed a rezoning application with the Town of Ashland to rezone 52.5 acres of property from a planned unit development (PUD) of 5.12 units per acre to a PUD of 2.82 units per acre with a plan of development. It is zoned as “rural residential” (RR-1) and “neighborhood commercial” (B-4). His lawyer, William Shewmake, from the law firm of LeClairRyan, represented Jones’ interests. Jones’ property is located at the southeast corner of the intersection of Thompson Street (U.S. 54) and Chapman

Street. It is bordered by Luck Farm to its west and Ashland Nursing and Rehabilitation and First Baptist Church to the south on Ashland’s western town edge. Town staff recommended deferral on the applicant’s rezoning application to the commission due to outstanding questions regarding the proffers that are in need of being addressed before the town can make a final decision for approval. However, also included in their recommendation to Planning Commissioners, was that if those proffer comments were addressed, then they would be recommending approval of the rezoning that addresses off-site improvements in transportation that were provided in the traffic impact assessment. Commissioners voted 41 to recommend approval of Jones’ rezoning application so long as the conditions and

proffers are met. Selden held the lone vote in disagreement, citing concerns of possible road work and traffic conflicts that may be out of their control in the future. REZ17-0512 (Law Office) The final public hearing during the June 14 Planning Commission meeting focused on a rezoning application filed by H. Carter Redd, who is hoping to rezone a property from RR-1 to B-4 so that he can open a law office. Redd plans to use an already existing one-story brick building that contains three gravel parking spaces on the property for his office, which is located on 1.03 acres at the northeast corner of the intersection of Frances Road and East Patrick Henry Highway (U.S. 54). Redd’s rezoning application was recommended for approval by all members of the Planning Commission and the case will move forward to town council.

ood morning/afternoon. It is my privilege to welcome family members, friends, distinguished guests, and, most importantly, the Class of 2017. Undoubtedly, this is a day that you have dreamt about for quite a long time. I imagine the same may be true for the many parents in attendance. Today simultaneously represents the culmination of thirteen years of hard work and the beginning of the next phase of your life’s journey. I, along with the Hanover County School Board, am grateful for the opportunity to be with you today to celebrate your accomplishments. Graduates, my message to you today can be summed up in three words—Relevance, Equity, and Innovation. These words have been a focal point this year among our educators and staff, and they will guide all work in the school division for many years to come to ensure we continue to provide our students with an exceptional education. By now, I’m sure some of you are asking yourselves, “What does this have to do with me? Why does this matter now? I’ve completed my work. I’m graduating.� Perhaps you’ve asked similar questions along the way about your coursework. “When will I ever have to use the Pythagorean Theorem? Why do I need to learn the periodic table? How do events from 200 years ago affect me now?� Well, I believe these are all great questions, which leads me to my first point—relevance. As you enter into the workforce, military service, or higher education, your need for relevance will change from something you crave in your academic experience to a life perspective you may come to embrace. Soon, you will no longer be preparing for the world as much as you will be living and working in it. Perhaps relevance in this context can be framed as a need for significance and importance. So, I challenge you to begin asking yourselves these questions instead, “Am I adding significance? Am I adding importance?�

True, significance, like beauty, may the previous year and self-admittedly be in the eye of the beholder. In my developed a somewhat cocky attitude. view though, significance is not about He didn’t feel that his talents were what we are able to obtain or achieve, being recognized, especially by his rather it is about what we are able to manager, Dusty Baker, so he voiced give.

is surprising to some. In life, simply selecting “C� on a multiple choice test is not an option. The problems you will face will be much more complex. As Albert Einstein reminds us, “The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.� Relentless determination, persistence, and the attitude that failure is not real failure unless we give up produced Thomas Edison, George Washington Carver, Steve Jobs, Dorothy Vaughan, and Bill Gates. So, do not be afraid to dream big. Do not be afraid of making mistakes. Do not be afraid of being labeled as “different� or even “eccentric.� You see, these words perfectly describe some of the greatest contributors to mankind. Not only can innovation lead to success, but it is, in fact, one of the most integral components. Graduates, in just a very short time, you will walk across this stage. You will receive a diploma that is representative of the hard work you have invested. The diplomas will appear very similar, with the most distinct difference of course being the name in the center. This difference should not be underestimated. Each of you had a different path to arrive at this moment in time. Embrace these differences because they are a part of what makes you, you. Use your uniqueness to spur creativity and innovation without fear. At the same time, remember that those with whom you come in contact are individuals as well. Take the time to get to know them, to really know them. Only then can you be the best teammate possible by treating them with the equity they deserve. Finally, approach your next steps by asking yourself, “Am I adding relevance? Am I adding significance through my actions?� Relevance, equity, and innovation can be found in almost any profession, but they do not occur by chance. Like the dedication that brought you here today, cultivating these ideas will take a focused approach. I have no doubt that you are up to the challenge. Congratulations, Class of 2017. I cannot wait to see the difference you will make.
