Praise, concern aired over budget Jenkins repeats as By Jim Ridolphi for The Mechanicsville Local

Jim Ridolphi for The Local

Rachel Levy of Together Hanover spoke in favor of the budget but recommended increased compensation for teachers in order to retain good experienced teachers in Hanover County.

ASHLAND -- Most speakers at a public hearing last week regarding Hanover County Public Schools superintendent Dr. Michael Gill’s proposed 2019 budget had high marks for his pending plan. A majority of the people who took advantage of an opportunity for citizens and leaders of professional organizations to express their thoughts

on the recently introduced budget endorsed the $203 million proposal. Citing Gill’s ability to present a comprehensive budget in the face of revenue challenges in state funding, an increased Local Composite Index (LCI) and rising health and retirement costs, the speakers also lauded the document’s commitment to a robust five-year technology plan that eventually see BUDGET, pg. 15 }

Man gets life for beating wife to death By Sean Gorman Richmond Times-Dispatch

HANOVER -- A Hanover County man was sentenced to life in prison today for the 2016 beating death of his wife in a Mechanicsville neighborhood. Harshadkumar Jadav, 34, was convicted of first-degree murder in June for the fatal beating of Reena Jadav with a JADAV hammer.

he jury at the end of that trial recommended the life sentence that Hanover Circuit Court Judge Patricia Kelly formally imposed today. Shari Skipper, Hanover's chief deputy commonwealth's attorney, told Kelly at today’s hearing that if there ever was a case that merited a life sentence, it's this one. Skipper noted Reena Jadav, 30, suffered at least 19 blows during the attack. The victim was found by police on Sept. 5, 2016, on a lawn one street over from where she lived with her husband in the Honey Meadows neighborhood. "The attack upon the victim in this case was particularly brutal," Skipper said at

Specializing in Mergers

today’s hearing. But defense attorney Charles C. Cosby Jr. asked for a lighter sentence, saying that before this case, his client's life was full of promise. Cosby noted Jadav had two master's degrees and no prior criminal record. Cosby asked for the judge to throw out Jadav's conviction arguing his client did not get a fair trial and that jury instructions in the case were misleading and confusing. But Kelly rejected those arguments. The defendant declined to make a statement before he was sentenced. Cosby said after court that Jadav is appealing his conviction.

Most of the kids fall into federally mandated categories with funding provided locally, coupled with matching dollars from the state. Assistant county administrator Jim Taylor told the Hanover County Board of Supervisors last week that the state’s Community Services Act mandates these services and his budget came up about $1 million short due to those increased expenditures. He asked board members to allow transfer of about $300,000 to cover those shortfalls.

CSA clients that require services that are not mandated are often referred by the courts, the Community Services Board or direct referral by families. State and local funding also provide services for these recipients. “The practical impact of these requirements is that the state and the locality must appropriate the full amount of funding for those children in those mandated populations,” Taylor said. Students who require services like the ones provided by the Faison School, an off-site provider that specializes in treatment and education of autistic students, can cost the county up to $70,000 per year. One indication of the increased demand is clearly

That shortfall is somewhat offset by a $350,000 balance for other services provided by CSA, leaving a deficit of about $671,000, a part of which is reimbursable from the state.

K eep in m ind M ayberry was a  ctional town By Melody Kinser Managing Editor For those of us who grew up in the 1960s, Mayberry, North Carolina, seemed like the ideal community -- everybody knew everybody, the sheriff didn’t carry a gun, the economy appeared stable, and all seemed to be well in that small town. OK, now for the reality: Mayberry was a fictional place supposedly based on actor Andy Griffith’s hometown of Mount Airy. Sadly, that homespun neighborly concept seems to only survive in TV reruns. Ah, they were simpler times when I was young (yes, I’ve reached that age).

Last week, we published an article with two surveillance photos of men checking out vehicles in the Rutland subdivision of Mechanicsville. The Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office is investigating these larcenies, but a major issue in these incidents is the fact that residents left their vehicles unlocked. As Sgt. James R. Cooper, public information officer for the HCSO, said, lock your vehicles and don’t leave valuables in them. In other words, don’t make yourself a target for those who may be roaming through our neighborhoods while we sleep. Overall, we do reside in a safe county, but there

are those who target nice neighborhoods in search of items to steal. Don’t make it easy for them. Col. David R. Hines, sheriff, and his officers will diligently pursue, arrest, and help in the conviction of those responsible for any break-ins of vehicles in our county. Most of all, please heed the warnings from Col. Hines and Sgt. Cooper by protecting your property. Lock your vehicle and take your valuables into your home. Let’s keep Hanover County safe by doing all we can to protect ourselves and our neighbors. Don’t put out a welcome mat for thieves.

R em em bering a  eld and its m any hidden treasures By Jim Ridolphi Contributing Columnist It was always there and the first place we ran when we arrived at my grandmother’s house in Maryland. She lived on a small dead end street. Where the road ended, there was a huge wooden type fence that looked like it came straight out of a Western movie. On the other side of the aged fence was the field, a large expanse of land that had sat open for I suppose eternity, a rolling meadow of wildflowers, cows and endless possibilities. As youngsters, we were only

allowed to stop at the foreboding fence and watch, sometimes hoisted onto the rails by our father or uncle. We were much too little to confront a pesky looking bull that seemed much too interested in my sister’s red shorts than he did in my unsubstantial frame. Numerous visits and years later, the field remained untouched by the development that seemed to surround it on all sides. A new interstate highway supplied a new far boundary for the acres of land, but, for little ones, it was still a field of dreams. The cows and bull were now gone, and some enterprising farmer had

turned the land into a turf farm, a theory that seemed foreign to me at the time. Later we learned that some of sod from that very field was used to patch holes at Griffith Stadium in Washington, D.C., and later supplied the turf at RFK Stadium, also located in Washington. As pre-teens, we embarked on all sorts of exploratory jaunts to all corners of the field, always making a new discovery along the way. A new adventure always awaited us as we explored every nook and cranny of the acreage. We once encountered a hobo taking a break from the adjacent tracks,

and brought him soft drinks and candy bars to cheer him up. It was a different time, to be sure. As we got bigger, the field became smaller, infringed upon by some new development or strip mall, but it still remained, sitting silent at the end of that street holding a lifetime of memories for the children who surrounded it. Even as a teenager, it was the first place I went when I visited by grandmother.

Civil War still being waged; called a draw (Editor’s note: The following letter was submitted in response to Ted Mentz’s letter in the Jan. 17, 2018, edition of The Mechanicsville Local.) I appreciate the sarcasm. But your problem with the monuments as “trophies for the losers” has a flaw: The people that erected those monuments didn’t lose. The South may have lost the formal armed hostilities, but if you study the history since 1865 (which most high school history texts gloss over, and were consciously designed to do so) it’s pretty obvious that the war has been and is today still being waged, and at best it can be called a draw. When the cause was lost by traditional military means, the South turned to guerilla tactics -- intimidation, subversion, and, all too often, physical attacks and murder -- to achieve the ends they couldn’t win on the battlefield. In a social structure based on the ridiculous notion that the white man was ordained by God to rule, all necessary actions, both legal and extralegal, are considered acceptable to maintain that superiority. For them, equality of the races could not stand -- and it didn’t stand, as by 1878 most of the advances made around the war were wiped out, nullified or ignored. By the time those monuments were erected, chattel slavery may have been gone but every other aspect of white dominionism in the South was back in full effect. From then to now, moral people have continued trying to achieve equality, and those that cling to that cowardly notion of white race superiority continue to fight it. Those monuments aren’t trophies, they’re one side’s shots in an ongoing battle. The other side makes its return fire by removing them. Steve Sneed Mechanicsville see LETTERS, pg. 8 }

LETTERS Continued from pg. 6 

Taxpayers run out of support money for nation I hate to be the bearer of bad news but the U.S. taxpayers have finally realized we have a problem due to elected officials’ incompetent leading, over-taxation, vote-buying giveaways and other waste over the last 28 years. The U.S. taxpayers have finally run out of support money as we continue to experience an overabundance of greedy, dishonest, untruthful and unqualified elected officials in all levels of government. These officials have taken from the hard-working American taxpayers to buy the

the street were filled with melancholy thoughts. On one of the last evenings before the final sale, we walked to the end of the street and took a familiar seat on the aging fence, old and battered but still steady as a rock. We heard the distant whine of the trucks on the interstate, smelled the wonderful aroma of wildflowers taking another

chance at spring, and marveled at a sky full of stars, many of them seemingly close enough to touch. Though unspoken, we knew it would be our last trip to the long-honored gathering spot at the end of Meem Avenue. In fact, the field was slated for development and we were, maybe, the last group of kids who learned, loved, and played

on the old farm. We sat and gazed out into the expanse. I surmised my sister was probably thinking about that worrisome bull that always seemed to pick her out of a crowd. As we sat, a passenger train passed over the newly constructed bridge long away in the distance, its cabin lights providing the only illumination.

“It looks like a train in the sky,” my sister said. And it did appear otherworldly as if it were suspended in air, anchored by nothing as it passed through the Maryland night. I think about that image often – that train in the sky heading to who knows where crossing what would become our field of dreams.

In reality, I guess that train was a means to take us anywhere and everywhere we wanted to go in life, just like the field it crossed. And late at night in the silence of the darkest part of the evening, I hear that whistle and can see that train in the sky passing, and, somehow, I’m back on that fence gazing out on life’s possibilities.

votes of those who could and should be working, but, thanks to giving them our tax dollars, they don’t need to work. Why can’t they get it? They’re taking potential taxpaying workers out of the work force with giveaways and, therefore, opened the gate for illegal immigrants to pour in and take jobs the freeloaders could be doing. The government and freeloaders currently outnumber taxpayers and we can no longer afford either of them. In a short while they will realize they need us more than we need them. Elected officials, you are hereby notified that the U.S. taxpayer will stop paying taxes today and will no longer keep the government and freeloaders living in the manner you’ve become accustomed.

We are asking for a decrease in our taxes, a decrease in your salaries, a decrease in your benefits, a decrease in giveaways and an increase in taxpayer importance. Otherwise, we will be forced to permanently cut the services you have come to expect from us. The tax dollars you have used in the past for ridiculous perks, including sex changes, illicit affairs, early retirement, snow days, short days, big pay, no work pay, fake positions, holidays and bad hair days, will now be used for our own livelihood such as food, clothes, medical, heat, auto, education, retirement, insurance, our business, our homes and our families. I didn’t mention entertainment as I figure we will be entertained enough just watching the news and seeing how bad things get for you guys as you struggle to make it without our support and as you attempt to get dates with the same or opposite sex without our money. We certainly won’t expect to hear of any cuts to the number of government employees or paychecks, but we will expect you to continue with the minimum services we now get plus the elevated level of services we already pay for. We really expected there would be more effort and sacrifice from government to make this economy work until we get back on our feet, but it looks like that will not be the case.

The richest country on earth and basically broke. If you had not allowed the over-spending, over-perking, over-hiring and other waste, you would’ve had enough money left over to last the next 20 years without taxpayer help. In any case, we are finished, figure it out for yourself, the government has always been smart enough to get our money to use for its own comfort but always too dumb to manage it for our benefit. It’s time for a change, a time to start over and maybe we can all take advantage of a second chance. And, just in case it doesn’t work this time around, would someone please send me the freeloading voters’ menu of available freebies? Please send all three menus, Democrat, Republican and Independent as I can go either way and would like to see my options. Ted Mentz Old Church

Congress, he has a record -- and not one that most conservatives get excited about. Did you know, for example, that two years ago a bill that would have cut the fat subsidies Amtrak receives … the good congressman voted no? What spending would Wittman cut -- if not this low hanging fruit? It’s a fair question. Back to the letter. The leader of the MTP stated that “my 401(k) was rising, my taxes were lower” … leaving me to wonder as I read it: Did this guy ever understand what the Patriot Movement was about? Has the national debt decreased? Has any spending been cut? Did he ever have a clue of the magnitude of the fight we are engaged in? Leadership requires a willingness to fight, to stand firm on principles that you refuse to compromise on. This isn’t about our generation, (or our 401(k)s) but what kind of country our children and grandchildren will inherit, and he clearly demonstrates he doesn’t even begin to see the damage he does with this type of hero worship baloney. This guy is the typical Republicrat establishment good ol’ boy who places a priority on winning, and everyone getting along, more than he does getting something of substance done. You can’t sit back comfortable in your personal

goodstanding with the local Republicrats and pretend you actually achieved anything. You can only ride the [U.S. Rep. Dave] Brat wagon for so long. Anyone paying attention to Hanover County government already understands the harm that has come to the citizens of Hanover under this guy’s absolute pathetically weak leadership. Has Hanover cut spending or shrunk local government? Has Hanover spent less money or lowered taxes? They re-elected the same people to the Hanover County Board of Supervisors that openly attended their meetings back in 2010-2011. The MTP turned not one of them out of office. I founded the Mechanicsville T.E.A Party some eight years ago as a non-partisan grassroots civic organization to thwart the growth of local government, to drive out of office the good ol’ boys who are simple stooges for the developers and the crony capitalists they have imbedded into Hanover government. What it has become under this type of vacillating weak leadership saddens me more than anything. They have accomplished nothing of substance, unless, of course, you include carrying water for the very establishment network we started to dismantle eight years ago.

Overall skate ability among      starting in the $150’s topics addressed for park By Melody Kinser Managing Editor

MECHANICSVILLE – Interest continues to grow in how a skate park at Pole Green Park in Mechanicsville is being operated by Hanover County Parks & Recreation. Dan Smith, deputy director of the department, said a recent public meeting provided an opportunity for skaters to talk about the venue’s overall skate ability and its element, as well as the development of a skate area for beginners. In addition to the public comment session, a survey was offered for the community. This was the second time such feedback was requested by Parks & Rec. The first survey took place two years ago.

“The goal is to create a dialog between the users and the department to make sure that users have a good experience using the park and meet the needs for all skill levels in the community,� Smith said. “Our initial survey two years ago was to determine what type of skating elements would replace older elements that needed to be replaced due to their age and condition,� he said. The general flow of the skate park and ways that could help the skating experience also were addressed in the recent meeting. “Many of the survey respondents had similar concerns as the meeting participants concerning the flow of the skate

area and repairs to the surfacing,� Smith said. He said Parks & Rec staff will review the information received in the meeting and through the survey to see how changes can be made to the flow and surfacing of the skate park with available budgeted funds. Smith noted that the department will consider needed replacements moving forward, with the staff continuing to conduct surveys and meetings to insure the needs of the participants. For more information on the skate park or other department projects and events, contact Hanover County Parks & Rec at 804-365-7150 or parksandrec@hanovercounty.gov.

displayed in Faison’s capacity, which Taylor said is at nearly tapped out. “In January, we had 15 more students in the same time the previous year at an annual cost of around $58,000 at a private specialty center,” Taylor said. “It adds up quickly.” There are currently 22 Hanover students at Faison.

supplies laptops and devices for teachers and students. While most speakers also endorsed the plan’s 2% salary increase for all employees, some said it didn’t go far enough. John Thoburn has two sons, one who attends Patrick Henry High School and one a recent graduate. Both siblings have selected German for their language, but Thoburn said the experience has had its share of ups and downs. His son’s first German teacher left when an additional child expected in his household forced the experienced teacher to seek more compensation in another locality. The replacement lasted only three years, citing an inability to pay back student loans on her

Special education students enrolled at private educational sites are served at facilities around the metro area, including Faison, St. Joseph’s Villa and the Home for Boys and Girls. “We are fortunate to have specialty schools in our community,” Taylor said. In other business, county administrator Rhu Harris presented his List of Initiatives for FY2019, a precursor to his budget presentation scheduled for

next month. Topping that list is the construction of the Atlee Library, a long anticipated project that is slated to begin in 2019. “We’re well into the design process and we’ve held a number of community meetings, online surveys … and our fiveyear CIP [Capital Improvement Plan] anticipates the construction of the Atlee Library to begin next year,” Harris said. “We would recommend that

funding be part of your proposed initiatives as we go forward. Also included on the suggested priority list is the continuation of the renovation of the vacated court buildings. The Circuit Court building is well into its construction schedule and the Commissioner of Revenue, the Treasurer, Internal Audit and Finance and Management are slated to move into that building in 2019.

Officials are now in the design phase for the former General District Court. Harris said it’s never too early to begin planning for a birthday bash, and Hanover County is preparing to celebrate its 300th in 2020. “We’ll be a brisk, young 300 years old,” Harris said. “We think that’s worth celebrating. This is a major milestone and we would ask that the board consider a citizen committee to

work with staff and board to plan out the festivities.” Harris also suggested the county complete its Community Development software. “We are about to undertake the selection with a vendor. The new system is dedicated to making our online capabilities for our citizens much easier to use,” Harris said. Harris also urged the board

meager salary as the reason for her departure. “While I am hopeful that another German teacher can be found, I am not overly optimistic that one can be retained,” Thoburn said. “It is not in the interest of our students to have our teachers turn over so quickly.” He addressed the current proposal to raise salaries by 2%. “While I am heartened to see a pay increase for our teachers in the budget, 2% is clearly too little to retain financially struggling teachers.” Thoburn suggested assisting struggling teachers by paying off student debt, and lightening the current 6x8 teaching schedule. “I urge you to inform our [Hanover County] Board of Supervisors of the very real consequences of falling behind in support of our teachers,”

Thoburn said. “Seek to negotiate a better deal with the supervisors for our children. Aim high,” he added. Representing Together Hanover, parent Rachel Levy also addressed teacher compensation and the lack of step increases. “We support the 2% raises for teachers and the funding of much needed new staffing positions as well as the absorption of increased benefits expenses,” she said. “However, teachers haven’t seen step increases in years and the problem of salary compression is a real one. We are losing veteran teachers because they can go to neighboring districts and make $8,000 to $15,000 more, even if starting salaries are comparable.” The county has provided salary increases for its employees the past four years in an effort to

remain competitive in a shrinking teacher pool, but no step increases have been funded. Step increases provide compensation for employees for the number of years worked. Gill pointed out he wasn’t sure when the county last provided step increase funding for its teachers, but noted it would add a significant amount to the budget and was not possible this year. Hanover County School Board member John Axselle, Beaverdam District, said he was around when the system was in effect and pointed to a scale that often pitted one employee against another regarding raises, and was burdensome to program administrators. “You had someone in Step 7 getting a bigger raise than someone in Step12, so I distinctly remember discussion

among staff that became difficult because of that. It was quite a bit to manage,” Axselle said. Another problem with the step system as currently written is that raises between steps are not uniform, and could be conceived as unfair by some. “I think it would round out the picture if we had additional information on that piece,” Henry District school board member Marla Coleman said. “Certainly, every speaker here tonight has addressed the need for compensation and I am in awe of the fact that we have been consistent in the years since we have recovered from the economy,” she added. Gill assured board members he would collect that data and provide an estimate of how much it would cost to initiate a step increase program.

Board chair Sue Dibble, South Anna District6, was clear on where she stands on the implementation of step increases. “The school board is not unlike any other business in our community,” she said. “We have to work within our means. At a point and time when we believe that we can afford it, we need to move in that direction but I don’t believe we are in a situation right now where we can afford it.” Officers from the Hanover Education Association, Hanover Council of PTAs and Hanover Professional Educators spoke at the public hearing. All endorsed the proposed budget and its intent to add eight positions to the CodeRVA Regional High School and supply all schools with a new visitor management system.

ASHLAND – Ashland Town Council recently approved O rdinance 2018-02 that authorizes the town manager to establish snow emergency routes. According to the action taken on Jan. 2, the routes designated will be posted with appropriate signs indicating their designation as snow emergency routes. In the event of snow, sleet, hail, freezing rain, ice, water, flood, high wind, storm, or the threat thereof, the Ashland Police Department may be authorized to remove any vehicle that is stalled, stuck, parked,

or abandoned on or along any highway or street designated as a snow emergency route. The goal of the program is to allow Public Works crews to safely clear vital routes within the town for emergency vehicles and the general public. O nce the designated streets have been completely cleared, the parking restriction will be lifted. The streets highlighted in red on the map (shown to the right) have been designated as snow emergency routes. Should the town manager declare a snow or other emergency, vehicles must be removed from the designated routes.

Family comes through for Hall of Famers By Chip Knighton For The Mechanicsville Local MECHANICSVILLE – Family was the theme Friday night as the Lee-Davis Athletic Hall of Fame welcomed its fifth class in a ceremony at the school. Four multi-sport standouts and one successful coach officially entered the ranks of the Lee-Davis athletic elite, and one of last year’s inductees served as a common thread. Buddy Gregory, the school’s football coach from 1968-1976 and a 2017 inductee, introduced one of two former quarterbacks of his who was inducted Friday night – Doug Melton. Gregory’s son, Greg, was also inducted Friday, with his sister, Tammy Kelley, introducing him. Family was everywhere even when you took the Gregorys out of the equation. The late Ron Wooddy, a three-sport standout in the early 1960s, was represented at the podium by his son, Tyler. Kenny Lewis, who coached the Confederates to two baseball championships, discussed meeting his wife through his work at Lee-Davis. But it was former football standout Jock Jones who told the most poignant family story, detailing growing up without his parents after his father killed his mother. The Hall of Fame Committee also honored the late Mickey Byrd, a 35-year educator who

Patriots hold off L-D challenges in sweep By Chip Knighton For The Mechanicsville Local MECHANICSVILLE – The jumpers weren’t falling for the Lee-Davis boys, while the layups were going down for Patrick Henry. Those factors told the story as the Patriots won 62-51 on the road Friday night. Patrick Henry (5-11) got off to a quick start and led by double digits for most of the first half before an Adonis Carroll dunk touched off a 12-3 run that brought the Confederates within six points late in the third quarter. But Devyn Coles, the Patriots’ lightning-quick junior point guard, scored the next six points to spark a 13-2 run that effectively put Lee-Davis away. Coles had 10 of his 27 points in the first quarter as Patrick Henry jumped out to a 16-5 lead with the Confederates (4-10) starting off cold from the outside. He and backcourtmate Jamel Jackson heated up again in the late stages, combining for 11 of the Patriots’ 21 fourth-quarter points to salt away the game. “We tell them every night, ‘Don’t tell yourself short. You guys are two of the best guards in the area,” said Patriots head boys basketball coach Randy Anderson. “Both of them are explosive. They played well tonight. They stuck to the game plan and kept attacking.” Sophomore center Chris Osuanah, who spent time on the junior varsity earlier in the year, chipped in five points to solidify the interior for the undersized Patriots. But the key factor in the game was how consistently Coles and Jackson were able to join him near the Anderson said. “Tonight, they rim. gave us the paint, so we took it.” “We tell them to take Dontae Baker led Lee-Davis what the defense gives them,” with 12 points, while Carroll,

pened had the Confederates spent more time playing like they did near the end of the third quarter. “It’s obviously frustrating to lose a game when we played the way that we played,” LeeDavis coach Chad Bishop said. “They made some runs. They show how well they can play in spurts, but they’ve got to do it for the entire game.”

James Wallace III and Avery Fusco chipped in 10 each. But coach Chad Bishop was left to wonder what would have hap-

night. The Confederates (3-11) led by three in the final minute, but the Patriots pressed effectively enough to get opportunities to tie the game at the free-throw line. They continued to tighten the screws defensively in overtime, shutting out Lee-Davis from the field and allowing just three Codie Heilig free throws. Patrick Henry standout JaBryah Havercamp had 21 points and 11 rebounds, but the Confederates held her to two points in the fourth quarter as they outscored the Patriots 11-5 to force overtime. Smith took control in the extra period and finished with 16 points and 10

rebounds. “Lee-Davis did a great job taking [Havercamp] away in the second half. It gave us a hard time to deal with that,” said Patrick Henry girls basketball head coach Phillip Cobb. “With them taking JaBryah away, Ava Smith really stepped up when we needed her at the end of the game.” Jamie Hughes had 15 rebounds for the Patriots (5-8). Heilig had 10 of her 14 points from the free-throw line. Boys PATRICK HENRY — Coles 27, Jackson 10, Ailor 6, Foster 6, Brown 8, Keller 0, Shelton 0, Franke 0, Perry 0, Osuanah 5. Totals 21 17-28 62.

Atlee boys, Hanover girls earn split in DH By Andrew Blair For The Mechanicsville Local MECHANICSVILLE – Hanover and Atlee, two high schools separated by less than five miles, couldn’t have played a pair of games that looked and felt more different in boys’ and girls’ basketball action at Hanover High School Friday. After Hanover’s girls’ clobbered Atlee by 30 points in a game that was basically over before the end of the first quarter, the Raiders’ boys’ used strong play late in the third quarter and into the fourth to best the Hawks 80-70 in the nightcapper that was close most of the way. Atlee’s boys’ withstood a brilliant performance by Hanover junior Will Fahed, who couldn’t miss on his way to a game-high 37 points. Instead, the Raiders relied on a strength-in-numbers approach to ultimately wear down the Hawks. Five players tallied a combined 68 points, led by senior point guard Carson Miller’s 23, including 16 in the pivotal second half. Sophomore Tyler Warren (15 points) and senior Cameron Smith (12 points) also reached double figures. Fahed tallied 19 first half points and continued his torrid shooting after intermission as Hanover clung to a one-point lead (49-48) late in the third quarter. Atlee stayed close, though, enduring a more than two-minute drought without a point. Following a timeout late in the third quarter, the Raiders immediately went on a 9-0 run to take an eight-point lead that they would never relinquish. Miller supplied six points in that decisive span. A Fahed basket in the closing seconds of the third got

Oliver made both of his free throws, tying the back-and-forth game at 16-16 with 7:05 left in the second quarter. Right, Atlee’s Kelly Ayer is trapped in the corner by Hanover defenders Shelby Walker (left) and Rachel Metzger (right) as Hanover head coach Mike Rohr watches from the sidelines in the Hawks girls’ 53-23 win. Metzger was able to strip the ball from Ayer.

Hanover within five, but Atlee surged again, turning their initial blitz into a 17-5 charge that pushed their advantage to double digits, 65-54. Miller supplied 12 points in those momentumaltering moments. The Raiders’ defense also intensified. The ball was humming on offense. They turned seemingly every Hanover error into an easy transition basket. Their well-represented student

section was in a full-throated roar. Atlee fans knew what everyone else was witnessing: Game. Set. Match. First-year Atlee coach Rally Axselle got a good sampling of an emotional and fiercely fought rivalry contested between two schools in such close proximity to one another. “It was pretty cool to be a part of the rivalry, see how intense it is and how both teams

really got after it. It’s a great rivalry and both teams played hard. It was fun to be a part of this atmosphere,” Axselle said. “We need to keep after it and play 32 minutes and not let up at all.” Amid all the excitement in an intense, tangy and physical game, Miller seemed the most poised of anyone. He is a player who any coach or program would love to have at the

controls – one who knows his role, is an effective facilitator, sets tone, dictates tempo and, as he proved, can score when necessary. “My teammates have a lot of faith in me to score and our offense is run through swinging the ball a lot,” Miller said. “Really, coach [Axselle] did a great job of putting plays in to give everybody a chance. I tried to dish and create for others,

The Mechanicsville Local

too.” For his part, Fahed maneuvered himself brilliantly when Hanover’s offense was at its best, finding his sweet spots on the perimeter and using his feathery jumper to nearly set the nets ablaze, knocking down six triples. But in the late stages when Atlee took control, they did a better job of locating him. The Raiders outscored Hanover by 10 points (44-34) in the second half. Fahed and freshman guard D.J. Sims (10 points) supplied more than 65 percent of Hanover’s scoring. The Hawks were without the contributions of senior guard Jaylin Ross, who sustained an elbow injury in an early-week loss to Patrick Henry. It’s obvious that Hanover (1-12) is a better team than their record indicates. Three of their losses have come by two points or less. After losing four starters from last year’s Group 4A state semifinal team, it is also, at times, apparent that the team’s margin of error is so minute that the squad can’t afford much of a letdown. “We’re getting better and better each game, so we have to keep plugging,” said Hawks’ head coach Darren Thornton. see SPLIT, pg. 31

His talent on the gridiron carried him far away from Mechanicsville – first to Virginia Tech, where he was a centerpiece on Frank Beamer’s first defenses at the school, and later to the Arizona Cardinals and Cleveland Browns, where he played for a first-time head coach, soon to be fired, by the name of Bill Belichick.

Randolph-Macon guard Korey Turner (1) draws a fouls as he pulls up for a jump shot in the Yellow Jackets’ 68-47 victory over visiting Randolph College Saturday. Tuner was one of four Yellow Jackets in double figures with 10 points.

They were even farther from his early childhood, when his father killed his mother when Jock was just two years old, scattering him and his three siblings to the houses of different family members. “We had a very strong support system in our family,” he said. “Our family rallied behind us and they took us all in and they made sure that we were cared for and loved just like we were their own kids. “My grandmother made sure that everybody knew what they were doing, and she made sure that these four kids were going to stay close together. We didn’t go to the same house at

nighttime. We did go to the same school, and we lived right beside each other, and she made sure of that.” Jones described a childhood that was difficult in some ways, detailing his family’s outhouse and having to chop wood for heat in the winter. But his extended family and his coaches at Lee-Davis kept him focused on the path that led him to the NFL. “All through that time, I never knew I was poor. I never knew it,” he said. “I thought I was one of the richest kids in the neighborhood because my family had so much love and support. I didn’t always get what

I wanted, but I always had what I needed.” Kenny Lewis Lewis is the only 2018 inductee who didn’t attend Lee-Davis, but his love for the school runs just as deep as his classmates’. He remains at the school as a social studies teacher and coached the Confederate

baseball team from 1993-2015, winning Group AAA state championships in 1997 – the first state title in school history – and 2001. He was named the Virginia High School Coaches Association coach of the year in 2002 and compiled a 350-125 record as a coach. Lewis also coached the LeeDavis golf team from 20042015 and served as an assistant football coach from 1987-1996, but had his greatest success on the diamond.

Hanover’s Sarah Johnson grabs a rebound over Atlee’s Laci Miller in the Hawks’ 53-23 victory over the host Raiders Friday. Johnson had seven points in the game.

“One of the main things we talk about is to have four or five guys in double figures. Some other guys have to step up—and I do think we have those guys. It just didn’t happen tonight.” On the girls’ side, Hanover pummeled Atlee, building a 29-point lead at halftime and went on to a 53-23 victory. Hawks’ senior point guard Rachael Metzger led everyone with 17 points.

In all the games I played in, I don’t ever remember going into a game where I didn’t feel like I was prepared, that I didn’t have a chance of winning that game. And that says a lot of the coaches.”

DOUG MELTON

Ron Wooddy Hall of Fame Committee described Wooddy, a 1964 President Russ Abernathy graduate, as perhaps the greatest all-around athlete in the school’s history, and it’s hard to argue with the assessment. He played football, basketball and baseball, earning all-region honors as well as the nod as team MVP in football and basketball as a senior. Wooddy continued his multitasking ways in college at Richmond Professional Institute, now Virginia Commonwealth University, where he played basketball and Dave Lawrence/The Local baseball. (It’s worth pointing out Patrick Henry’s Paul Datovech swims to victory in 1:00.03 in the boys 100-yard backstroke in a win over Goochland Saturday. that like now, the school didn’t have a football team.) He played point guard on the court and ling even after college, earnshortstop and catcher on the ing induction into the Amateur RON WOODDY diamond, and continued excel- Softball Association Richmond Hall of Fame in 1986. Wooddy died in 2004 and was represented by his son, Tyler, who seemed a bit surprised at just how accomplished his father truly was. “He never really spoke much about his accomplishments when he was here, but he did speak a lot about his friends,” Tyler said. “I think we’ve heard over and over how important that is. These are all team sports, but it doesn’t start when you join the team. It starts in backyards, it starts at home, and it starts with the support of your family and friends.” Courtesy of Lee-Davis High School Chip Knighton can be Lee-Davis Athletic Hall of Fame inductee Jock Jones (55) is shown in NFL action against the Minnestota Vikings. reached at sports@mechlocal.

ground in design, launching a business insurance startup doesn’t seem like a natural connection. Steve Love, Hannah’s father, has worked in the insurance industry for over 30 years, owning several companies and brokerages. His industry expertise, paired with Hannah and Jade’s design and user experience skills, allowed Pogo to come to life in December 2017. Hannah said that starting Pogo was a greater challenge than she or Jade anticipated. She said there were many moving parts, none of which they had experience handling. “In school, you come up with a great idea, pitch it, and think, ‘Wow, I did it. It’s complete.’ After grad school, we worked at a creative agency. O ur job was to come up with the creative. You present your work, the team likes it, boom -- your work is done. We have never dealt with the logistics that happens after the creative,” Hannah said.

Because the pair recently just launched their own startup, they said that the struggle of getting things going is still fresh. That’s why Hannah said they are especially dedicated to making things as painless as possible for their users. “Self-employed business owners have many responsibilities. Handling clients, invoices and deadlines can be stressful enough on its own. But attempting to understand the complexities of commercial insurance, let alone if you need it, or what coverages are best for your business, can sometimes feel impossible,” the two said “O ur goal is to make insurance more accessible. Stuffy terminology and unclear advice doesn’t help anyone. Simplifying the information, simplifying the process-- that’s what makes insurance more accessible” Hannah added. Jade said she believes that “being able to communicate to people in a way that’s approachable, but still informative, is key.

Jade Sullivan, seated, and Hannah Gormanlove Sullivan have joined in launching an online commercial insurance agency for the self-employed.

And through carefully considered design and user experience, I think we’ve accomplished that.” She said many of the larger insurance companies don’t choose to work with small businesses, “because they don’t see it as worth the hassle. Because of that, the little guys aren’t getting the help they need.”

“That’s why we’re here. We want to help out the smaller, newer, underdogs -- because they deserve to succeed. And we can help them succeed by making sure their operations are protected,” Jade said. Hannah and Jade defined their brand as “not hard insurance.” They said that Pogo may be

new, but their team is made up of experts with 30-plus years of industry experience. Pogo Insurance is located at 1912 E. Broad St. in Richmond. For more information, call 833-298-3015 or go to https:// pogo.co/?gclid=EAIaIQ obChM I8NrtiLD22AIV 0zuBCh1esgB0 EAAYASAAEgJ4CvD_BwE.

The advantages of doggie daycare

any working parents arrange for childcare to ensure their youngsters are taken care of while parents are at work. The same level of care has now been extended to other members of the household, namely the four-legged variety. Spending and attention directed toward companion animals continues to grow. The American Pet Product Association says that in 2017 an estimated $69.36 billion dollars is expected to be spent on pets in the United States alone. Canadians spend a lot on their pets as well, as the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council of Canada says pet owners are increasingly treating their dogs and cats like people. Pet spending in that country is expected to rise from $6.6 billion in 2014 to $8.3 billion by 2018. Some of the fastest growth in spending across North America includes eco-friendly pet services, premium food, puppy daycare, pet spas, and dogwalking services. Pet owners want to ensure that their pets are happy and healthy, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re willing to spend to make that a reality. Doggie daycare is growing in popularity and can benefit dogs in various ways. ÂĽ Reduced boredom: A dog who is left home to his own devices may quickly become bored and then mischievous. Doggie daycare offers stimulation and the company of other dogs, which is ideal for breeds that thrive on companionship.

Reduced anxiety Separation anxiety is very real among some dogs. When anxiety strikes, dogs may become

          !

destructive or engage in incessant whining or barking. Daycare can alleviate these feelings of isolation.

Added exercise Dogs need ample exercise to maintain healthy weights and stay sharp. Daycares provide plenty of play throughout the day. They may even have obstacle courses and other toys that stimulate dogs.

Alleviated ownersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; concerns Pet owners may experience stress wondering what their dogs are doing all day at home. When an unexpected late night at the office arises, owners whose dogs are in daycare do not need to worry about feeding their dogs or letting them out for bathroom breaks.

Flexible plans Many facilities offer packages or alternative plans that let people decide just how many days or hours their dogs spend at the daycare.

Healthy socialization Daycare provides opportunities for dogs to socialize with many dogs and people, reducing their propensity to be territorial or dog-aggressive. Good socialization can help dogs develop well-rounded temperaments. Doggie daycare presents a healthy option for socialization and exercise for pets that live in busy households. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Metro Creative

n Walk, run or ride to the gym. Many people get the bulk, if not the entirety, of their exercise at a gym. For those who live outside of major cities, that likely involves driving to and from a gym before and after workouts. Instead of driving, consider walking, running or riding to the gym. Each option provides great cardiovascular exercise that can reduce or replace the time people spend on treadmills or elliptical machines. And cutting back on driving reduces fuel consumption and auto emissions, greatly benefitting the planet. n Exercise in the great outdoors. Fitness enthusiasts can reduce their energy

addition, opt for workout gear made of organic or recycled materials. Such items can be found online or at sporting goods stores or retailers that cater to outdoors enthusiasts.

any adults admit to having little or no time to exercise, and statistics support the notion that men and women simply arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exercising enough. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, only 21 percent of adults ages 18 and older met the physical activity guidelines for aerobic and musclestrengthening activity (Note: The World Health Organization recommends that healthy adults between the ages of 18 and 64 should do at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity throughout the week or do at least 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity throughout the week, while also performing muscle-strengthening activities involving the major muscle groups at least two days per week.) Commitments to work and family can make it hard to find time to visit the gym or exercise at home. But the benefits of regular exercise are so substantial that even the busiest adults should make concerted efforts to find time to exercise. The following are a handful of ways to do just that.

Embrace multitasking Many professionals are adept at mult-tasking in the office, and those same skills can be applied when trying to find time for exercise. Instead of plopping down on the couch to watch television, bring a tablet to the gym or the basement and stream a favorite show while on the treadmill or the elliptical. When running errands around town, ride a bicycle or walk instead of driving.

Cut down on screen time A 2016 report from The Nielsen Company revealed that the average adult in the United States spent more than 10 hours each day consuming media. That includes time spent using

smartphones, tablets, personal computers, and other devices. By reducing that screen time by just one hour per day, adults can create enough free time to meet the WHO-recommended exercise requirements.

Make it a group effort Involving others can make it easier for adults to find time to exercise. Instead of hosting work meetings in a conference room, take the meeting outside, walking around the office complex while discussing projects rather than sitting stationary around a conference table. At home, take the family along to the gym or go for nightly post-dinner walks around the neighborhood instead of retiring to the living room to watch

Redefine date night Adults who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find time for exercise during the week can redefine date night with their significant others. Instead of patronizing a local restaurant on Friday or Saturday night, enroll in a fitness class together. Parents can still hire babysitters to look after their youngsters while they go burn calories instead of packing them on at local eateries. Finding time to exercise can be difficult for busy adults.

Alcohol is a depressant that can affect the quality of sleep a person gets. But stimulants can also make it hard to get a good night’s sleep. Nicotine acts as a stimulant in small doses, so smokers should stop smoking that last cigarette before bedtime if they’re not getting decent or adequate sleep.

he importance of a good night’s sleep is well-documented. Numerous studies have found that the effects of a good night’s sleep go beyond boosting energy levels and improving alertness. A better sex life, less chronic pain and an improved mood are just a handful of the documented benefits that a good night’s sleep can provide. As important and beneficial as sleep is, many adults in the United States simply aren’t getting enough rest. A 2016 study from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that more than one-third of American adults are not getting enough sleep on a regular basis. Those findings are based on guidelines from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and the Sleep Research Society that recommend adults between the ages of 18 and 60 sleep at least seven hours each night. Getting a more restful night’s sleep requires concerted efforts on the part of adults who are falling short of seven hours each night. But the following are some simple ways for adults to start getting more rest.

Salmonella is ‘no yolk’ when raising backyard chickens

C

ity dwellers and suburbanites have flown the coop, so to speak. A growing interest in raising chickens has enabled coops and nesting birds to spring up in neighborhoods one would not typically associate with chickens. Sometimes dubbed ‘urban homesteading’ or ‘urban farming,’ these homegrown operations enable people to enjoy fresh eggs from the comfort of home. Henhouses are just another extension of methods to reap the benefits of fresh, local and nonfactory-produced foods. Although advocates insist that raising chickens on a small scale makes the birds less likely to carry disease

than factory-farmed chickens, anyone raising chickens needs to be aware of the potential for disease Ñ particularly salmonella. Also, it’s important to care for chickens in a manner that is humane and in line with local laws.

What is salmonella? Salmonella is a common bacteria that lives in the intestinal tract of humans, other mammals and some birds, including chickens. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that approximately 1.2 million illnesses and 450 deaths

Metro

are attributed to salmonella annually in the United States. The illness causes diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps between 12 and 72 hours after infection and can last between four and seven days. Salmonella can cause death when not properly treated with antibiotics.

Spreading salmonella Although humans cannot catch salmonella from chickens the way one would contract a cold, they can catch it through handling or consuming eggs of infected birds. The rural newsletter and farming resource Grit says salmonella can then be transmitted to humans who eat improperly cooked meat or eggs from infected birds or from putting their hands in your mouths after touching chickens or eggs that have come in contact with contaminated rodent or chicken feces. The elderly, people with weakened immune systems and young children are at the highest risk for salmonella infection than others. Children who help gather eggs and do not thoroughly wash their hands afterward can be at increased risk.

Reducing risk Maintaining clean conditions and routinely inspecting chickens for good health can help lower the risk of salmonella infection. Chicks and adult chickens that have salmonella may produce loose

yellow or green droppings; have a drop in egg production, increased thirst and decreased feed consumption; and show signs of weight loss. Look for rodents in the henhouse, as infected mice or other small rodents may transmit salmonella as well. Chickens also need safe, roomy clean conditions to remain healthy and content. According to the resource MyPetChicken, a diet of whole grains and seeds also may be associated with decreased salmonella colonies. Some experts warn against washing eggs as a preventative method. According to a report written by Diane Schivera, an organic livestock specialist for the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association, thoroughly cleaning egg

shells can remove a protective ‘bloom’ that prevents bacteria from entering eggs. Eggs shouldn’t be scrubbed, but some suggest a warm water rinse that will push dirt away from the shell’s pores. Old eggs are more susceptible to bacteria penetration. Storing eggs at room temperature may cause them to degrade faster. Once eggs are gathered, individuals should wash their hands and make sure the eggs are chilled. Salmonella can be prevented in backyard chicken coops. Plus, it’s important to note that risk of infection is very small. The American Egg Board’s Egg Safety reference says an average consumer might encounter a contaminated egg once every 84 years. — Metro Creative

Weight loss food choices come out on top

Metro

Although both diet and exercise are important components of healthy lifestyles, for those strictly looking to lose weight, a healthy diet seems to offer greater results than physical activity.

T

rying to avoid certain foods during a weight loss regimen is more difficult than one would imagine. Although a healthy combination of healthy eating and exercise is essential to successful, sustainable weight loss, research indicates that one component of the weight loss recipe holds more power: diet. A 2015 study from the Loyola University Health System found that, contrary to popular belief, exercise does not help a person lose weight. The researchers responsible for that study examined the link between physical activity and obesity for years. They initially believed physical activity would serve as a catalyst for weight loss. But the evidence indicated otherwise. Exercise increases appetite, which can

lead to increased caloric intake. Furthermore, it seems that people who are extremely active burn a similar number of calories as moderately active people. Increasing physical activity to burn calories works up to a certain point, but eventually the body will adjust to keep energy use stable. According to Herman Pontzer of Hunter College at the City University of New York, who studied people in subsistence farming or hunter-gathering societies against those who live in developed countries who are more sedentary, less active people’s energy expenditure increased alongside increases in physical activity. But at higher levels of activity, calorie burn plateaued. Pontzer found that the body works hard to maintain balance. Calories being burned by exercise will not

equal the same level of calorie reduction offered by eating or drinking less. The U.S. National Library of Medicine’s MedlinePlus states that jogging or swimming laps for 30 minutes can burn as many as 350 calories. It’s much easier to achieve the same calorie reduction by skipping two large sodas one day. That’s important to note, as many people do not sustain the level of exercise needed for consistent weight loss. According to the study ‘Prevalence of physical activity and obesity in US counties, 2001Ð2011: A road map for action,’ published in Population Health Metrics, the percentage of people who became more physically active in the United States increased between 2001 and 2009. However, this increase in level of activity was matched by an

increase in obesity in almost all counties studied during the same period. The study showed that increased physical activity alone has a small impact on obesity. But exercise should be not abandoned in favor of making smarter food choices. Physical activity is important for much more in terms of personal health. For example, physical activity reduces the burden of cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. Many studies and reviews also point out how physical activity can improve outcomes in pulmonary diseases, musculoskeletal disorders, neurological diseases, and depression. Diet is an effective tool for weight loss, more so than

even exercise. However, exercise remains an important component of a healthy life-

style. Both diet and exercise are keys to long-term health. — Metro Creative

When moles are worrisome

S

kin cancer is one of the most pervasive types of cancer, and just about everyone is at risk of getting it. The American Cancer Society says that, over the past 30 years, more people have had skin cancer than all other cancers combined. Melanoma, while not the most common form of skin cancer, is the deadliest form of the disease. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, if melanoma is recognized and treated early, it is almost always curable. One way to detect melanoma early is to be aware of moles and new growths on the skin. Brown spots, growths and moles on the body are often harmless, but they may be indicative of skin cancer. Experts say that anyone who has more than 100 moles is at greater risk for melanoma than others. Knowing one’s skin and being aware of any changes is key to detecting skin cancer much more promptly. Understanding the ABCDE’s of detecting melanoma and the ‘Ugly Duckling’ sign are important strategies for detecting skin cancer. Here’s what a person should know.

Ugly Duckling sign This concept was introduced in 1998 and

relates to the observation that nevi, or moles, on the body tend to look like one another, much like all the ducklings in a flock will resemble one another. However, a mole that is unlike the other, or an ‘ugly duckling,’ may indicate the presence of melanoma. Nevi may present in different patterns, which are deemed ‘normal’ to a particular person. An outlier, or a mole that doesn’t fit the pattern, could raise a red flag. The outlier may be darker than surrounding moles or it may be smaller.

ABCDE The Ugly Duckling sign is often used with another diagnostic tool called ABCDE. This is an acronym for the detection steps: Asymmetry, Border, Color, Diameter, and Evolving. n Asymmetry: If an imaginary line is drawn through the middle of the mole and the two halves of the mole do not match up, this could be a warning sign. Normal spots tend to be symmetrical. n Border: The borders of early melanoma tend to be jagged or notched, while regular moles have even borders. n Color: A mole with multiple colors might be melanoma.

n Diameter: Melanomas tend to be larger than the diameter of a pencil eraser. Large spots should be investigated. n Evolving: If a mole starts to change all of a sudden by growing or changing color, or even if it simply feels different, see a doctor.

‘When in doubt, check it out’ can be applied to detecting skin cancer. It is better to be safe than sorry, especially when considering that early detection can save lives in the event of melanoma. — Metro Creative

The benefits of quitting smoking outweigh continuing habit Smoking has been linked to a number of negative side effects, including raising smokers’ risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease. Quitting smoking can greatly reduce the likelihood of both of those outcomes, but the additional benefits of kicking tobacco to the curb may surprise smokers. According to the American Lung Association, smokers’ heart rates drop to normal levels within 20 minutes of quitting smoking. While not all side effects of quitting smoking are so immediate, many are just as impactful. The health benefits of quitting smoking are seemingly endless. The Office of the U.S. Surgeon General says quitting smoking is the single most important step smokers can take to improve the length and quality of their lives. The health benefits of quitting smoking are too numerous to list them all, but the following are some of the ways that quitting can improve smokers’ overall health. n Quitting benefits blood pressure. Smokers’ blood pressure levels can return to normal levels within two hours of quitting. Smokers may also notice their fingers and toes starting to feel warm shortly after they quit. That sensation occurs because quitting smoking also improves circulation.

n Quitting decreases levels of carbon monoxide in the body. When smoked, lit cigarettes release carbon monoxide, which compromises smokers’ ability to absorb oxygen into the bloodstream. That makes it difficult for red blood cells to carry oxygen. Body tissue that does not receive an adequate supply of oxygen can cease to function. But according to the American Heart Association, after 12 hours of smoke-free living, the carbon monoxide levels in smokers’ blood return to normal. n Quitting reduces risk of stroke. Stroke is another of

the myriad of cardiovascular diseases that has a connection to smoking. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, stroke occurs when the blood supply to the brain is blocked or when blood vessels in the brain burst and cause brain tissue to die. Smoking increases the buildup of plaque in blood vessels, which can block blood from getting to the brain. Smoking also causes blood vessels to thicken and narrow, again compromising the body’s ability to get blood to the brain. Within five to 15 years of quitting smoking, smokers’ risk of having a stroke is the same as that of nonsmokers. n Quitting can make it easier to exercise. Many smokers experience shortness of breath, which can make it difficult to commit to the kind of exercise that promotes short- and long-term health. Smoking damages the cilia, which are tiny structures that push mucus out of the lungs. Cilia damaged by smoking begin to repair within one month of quitting smoking, resulting in fewer coughing fits and instances of shortness of breath. Smokers interested in quitting can visit www.smokefree.gov for more information and support. — Metro Creative
