More departments present budget needs to HCBOS By Jim Ridolphi for The Mechanicsville Local HANOVER — The Hanover County Board of Supervisors heard more departmental FY2019 budget details as an ongoing process continues to consider a $463.1 million proposal presented by county administrator Cecil R. “Rhu” Harris Jr. last Wednesday. Supervisors heard from public safety and education officials. Fire/EMS, the Sheriff ’s

Office and education account for the majority of the county’s annual budget, HERZOG but other departments that perform a variety of important services and their annual spending plans

also are under review during the budget process. Public Utilities, Compensation and Benefits and a review of the county’s Capital Improvements Program (CIP) were on the agenda last week. Steve Herzog, director of Public Utilities, reviewed his request for FY2019 and noted Jim Ridolphi for The Local that his department is basically Members of the Hanover County Board of Supervisors, from left, Canova Peterson, Sean a nonprofit company designed Davis,Scott Wyatt and Wayne Hazzard review budget proposals submitted by various see BUDGET, pg. 4

ECHANICSVILLE -- Frances Aylor, author of the financial thriller “Money Grab,” has won the Ignite/ Rising Star Award from IngramSpark, an international book distributor and wholesaler. The award recognizes new authors for “savvy approaches to content creation, marketing and distribution.” A Mechanicsville resident and graduate of Lee-Davis High school, William and Mary, and VCU, Aylor turned to writing thrillers after retiring from a 28-year career in financial services and investing. Her book features Robbie Bradford, a female financial advisor who becomes the primary suspect after one of her colleagues is murdered.

“Writing about financial topics was easy,” Aylor said, “because that had been my job for so many years. But to write about crime, I had to do some research. I signed up for the Hanover County Citizens Police Academy, where we learned about investigative techniques, traffic stops, undercover work and so much more. Those classes were fun and informative, and included a ride-along with a deputy on his shift, time on the shooting range, and a visit to the Pamunkey Regional Jail. Many thanks to Sheriff David Hines for organizing this.” “Money Grab” can be ordered in paperback from local bookstores. Both the paperback and ebook versions are available on Amazon. Aylor is working on the second book in the Robbie Bradford series. It will be set in Switzerland and include some of the characters from “Money Grab.”

Salary compression is still an issue, but funding is not available to support a merit increase and a compression adjustment. Budget director Shelly Wright updated the board on the FY2019-23 CPI contained in the proposed budget. A major chunk of the plan is dedicated to funding for road improvements and parks and libraries. Road projects account for 34 percent of the five-year CIP. The five-year plan calls for two new libraries at Atlee and Montpelier (FY2021) and two new parks, one in the eastern portion of the county and one in the west. A community center also is planned. The CIP also provides funds for facilities improvements like the ongoing courthouse renovation project that will provide new homes for several county departments. They include the Treasurer, Commissioner of the Revenue and the Finance Department, freeing up space in the Wickham Building. The former district court building also will be renovated under the five-year plan, providing more office space for county departments and services.

OPINION | The Local Views

Road trip provided time to learn more about King By Laura McFarland Richmond Suburan News

T

he world is so unpredictable, and the way we react to it makes it sometimes seem even more erratic. One day something can make you cry in sadness; another day it can be a source of strength. This month, as the nation celebrates Black History Month, I had just such an experience. It started the weekend before last. After finishing work on Friday, I packed up the car and drove down to North Carolina to spend time with two wonderful women I have known for several years. Upon arriving, when they met me at my car to help retrieve my stuff, one noticed I had been crying. She asked me what was wrong. I simply

told her, “Martin Luther King Jr. died.” And do you know what she said? “Were you listening to one of your podcasts?” Bingo. On the drive down, one of the topics I chose for the drive was the Stuff You Missed in History Class podcast on the Memphis Sanitation Workers Strike of 1968. I knew of the strike but wasn’t familiar with many details. I definitely knew that it often is overshadowed by the assassination of Dr. King, who was in Memphis, Tennessee, that spring to help the sanitation workers in their quest for better safety standards, a decent wage and recognition of their union. It’s been just over 50 years since that strike began – the result of years of neglect and abuse of black employees that culminated with the death of two sanitation workers, Echol Cole and Robert Walker, who were crushed to death by

a malfunctioning garbage truck while seeking shelter from the rain. Dr. King visited Memphis a few times during the strike before his final visit. Ahead of a march that was planned for April 5, he gave a speech on April 3 now known as the “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop.” It’s a long and varied speech that covers many topics but keeps coming back to a few main points. One was that the people of Memphis needed to stand behind the sanitation workers in action as well as in talk. Another point was that — despite the dangers he had faced in the past and the very real threats to his life — Dr. King was exactly when and where he wanted to be. At the end of his speech, you can hear in his words that he had doubts he would live long enough to see the fulfillment of this fight for justice for people of color in the United States:

“We’ve got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn’t matter with me now, because I’ve been to the mountaintop. And I don’t mind. Like anybody, I would like to live — a long life; longevity has its place. But I’m not concerned about that now. I just want to do God’s will. And He’s allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I’ve looked over. And I’ve seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the Promised Land. So I’m happy, tonight. I’m not worried about anything. I’m not fearing any man. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord.” Even if the worst happened and he lost his life, he was at peace with it because he knew others would struggle on in his place. The next evening, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassee ROAD, pg. 8 

It may be the same language, but there’s a generation gap By Jim Ridolphi Contributing Columnist While recently traveling the interstate, the rain almost made it impossible to see the road, and I quickly realized that speed limits are just that. I slowed down as the hurried travelers zoomed by, paying no attention to the wet roads and hazardous conditions. I had three children in my car, so a reduction in speed seemed like the prudent thing to do, but my kids immediately questioned the reduced speed.

I explained that driving on a wet road is precarious, and, no sooner than I said it, a car slid to the shoulder, barely escaping a serious accident or injury. “Whoa, Nellie!” I yelled as I watched the incident. “What does that mean?” one of my kids asked with a familiar clueless expression. I tried to think where the expression came from, and, after some thought, I remembered what I thought to be its origin.

Explaining was even more difficult as I tried to describe an old television show starring Roy Rogers and Dale Evans. That discussion was even more puzzling to them, and I quickly noticed that look on their face that immediately screams alien language alert. At first, I thought Nellie may have been the Cowboy King’s horse, but I soon remembered that his trusty old Trigger claimed that moniker. To, I’m sure, no one’s surprise, they hadn’t heard of a single one of these

things, right down to Roy’s German Shepherd Bullet. The whole episode made me think a few things. Firstly, people in their 60s shouldn’t have small kids. For one thing, there’s a generational gap that is clearly demonstrated in the language. And the way things were expressed in the 1950s is a far cry from the way kids talk today. I could think of a thousand examples of things I talk about that have no meaning to anyone under the age of 35. They have no idea what hanging

up a phone really means, or why aluminum foil is Reynolds Wrap. It’s scary to think that they don’t know what I’m saying about 50 percent of the time, or perhaps reassuring to know they don’t. But, thinking back, that aforementioned expression on the face must be somewhat akin to what I looked like when my grandmother would become frustrated with an object and exclaim, “This thing ain’t worth a Continental!” Now, I never knew exactly what that expression meant, but I always associated it with something that didn’t work, or had no value. I now know it refers to American currency issued in Colonial times and during the Revolutionary War that quickly became worthless. In any case, it’s a phrase seldom to never heard anymore, just like some of the sayings I use around my children. We arrived home safely but the rain continued as we parked and gathered for the walk to the front door. “It’s raining hard, so let’s get going without a lot of ceremony,” I said. They all just giggled.

Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com ASHLAND -- Hanover Habitat for Humanity’s 63rd home has been under construction for five months and is now complete. Shera Glasco, a single mother of two daughters, purchased the home and is excited to move in. Shera has lived in Hanover County her entire life and said she loves that she has the opportunity to stay here and raise her girls. Her family was living in overcrowded conditions, making it difficult to give her daughters a stable learning and growing environment. Shera said she is “incredibly thankful” for this opportunity to give her girls stability and a place to call home. She actively built this home alongside other volunteers and saw her dream of homeownership come to life. Her home has three beds and two baths, nestled on about one acre across from a farm with a lake and livestock. After five months of hard work, and completing over 200 hours of sweat equity, Shera can officially call it home. Shera’s house was dedicated on Monday, Feb. 5, with her family and friends, Hanover Habitat staff and board members, sponsors, donors, as well as many volunteers who helped

build the home. A “Thank you” was extended to the United States Department of Agriculture which helped finance Shera’s home. Beth Green, USDA state director, was in attendance with several colleagues to celebrate the partnership and to see the finished product. USDA sent several volunteers during construction to help complete the home as well. Hamilton Beach donated multiple small appliances to help get Shera started in her new kitchen. They also sent volunteers to help with construction. Cake Art Divas provided a cake which everyone enjoyed. Thanks were extended to all who came out for the dedication. The attendance was described as “a true representation of how a community can come together and support a family.” Without volunteer labor, Shera would not have been able to purchase her home at an affordable cost. During the ceremony, she said, “I am blessed, and I will continue helping others who are also able to purchase a home through Hanover Habitat.” Shera has already started to help Hanover Habitat’s 64th homeowner, Kimberley Shuler. Her foundation has been laid and builders are

from North Carolina, I had the opportunity to attend a truly excellent Black History Month program held on Feb. 21 at Pocahontas Elementary School in Powhatan. In addition to beautiful performances by the school’s jazz ensemble and combined choruses, the event featured keynote speaker Dr. Delmar Wright, who had a great message for the students about how their attitudes will

influence their futures. Near the end of his speech, Dr Wright referenced the sanitation workers strike and that same speech. But rather than dwell on the sadness of these words, Dr. Wright turned this moment into one of hope. He challenged the students to be the best they can be, combine their words with action, dedicate their lives to their dreams, expect difficult times, have faith and fight tomorrow, inspire others to join them on their journey, let their lights shine every day, never say “I can’t,” put their best foot forward, overcome all obstacles, run the race with patience, stand strong, use all of their talents, have purpose and have perpetual self-motivation. Because being a catalyst for change isn’t restricted by age. I’d like to think of this as some cosmic coincidence that

had me hearing these same words just days apart in totally different situations – and I won’t totally discount that idea – but the truth is there was a connection in Black History Month. This is a month meant to remind us to celebrate black history and culture and pay homage to the men and women who paved the way to a better tomorrow in their blood, sweat and tears. It’s an opportunity to learn about people and events that are not as well known as well as learning something new about parts of history you already thought you knew well. And it is an opportunity to teach our young people where we have been so they have a better perspective on how we should move forward. Laura McFarland may be reached at Lmcfarland@powhatantoday.com.

Two killed in crash that ran off road, hit tree and caught fire Staff Report news@mechlocal.com A single-vehicle crash claimed both occupants Sunday on northbound Interstate 95 at mile marker 92. Sgt. Keeli L. Hill, spokesperson for the Virginia State Police, said a 2011 Ford Escape from Wisconsin ran off the road right, struck a tree, and then overturned on the driver’s side.

The secret to knowing your drinking limits ( Editor’s note: The following was submitted by Octavia Marsh, executive director of Hanover Cares.) Know your limits. Do you really understand how alcohol affects your body and your ability to function physically and mentally? Many people underestimate the effect of alcohol and, as a result, could be putting lives in danger by “driving happy” or “feeling no pain.” Do you know how many drinks it would take for your Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) to be above 0.08%? Do you know how long it would take for your BAC to go back down to 0.00%? Do you know how your senses are affected even under 0.08%? You might have done some calculations based on some information from the internet, or maybe you’ve just guessed. The fact is that most people do not have accurate information to know the answers to these questions. Did you know that at a BAC of 0.03% (or about 1 drink) you are already experiencing increased self-confidence, decreased inhibitions, decreased judgement and

impairment of sensory-motor skills? That means you could be physically impaired to drive a vehicle and overly confident about your abilities to do so. That makes for a dangerous combination. Also, after drinking,

depending on the number of drinks, age, and body weight, it is possible that one’s BAC may remain above the legal limit longer than another individual. Everyone’s body metabolism is different. It’s important to allow time for alcohol to clear your system and BAC to return to normal prior to driving or

engaging in other activities. Bottom line, the best choice is not to drink alcohol and then drive. Because so many people don’t have enough information to accurately assess their BAC, they unknowingly and unintentionally put lives in danger. If you knew your BAC, would you think twice about driving? We want to help our community members stop guessing and understand how BACs work and how drinking affects your body. Hanover Cares recently was awarded a Virginia ABC Education and Prevention grant and we are using that grant to educate our community. With the grant, Hanover Cares invested in the Intoxiclock Pro software. This software allows you to visually illustrate impacts of drinking alcohol, using one’s gender, weight, number and type of drinks consumed and the length of time over which those drinks are consumed. Using an active scenario, you can add drinks as time goes by and the software updates to tell you how long until your see LIMITS, pg. 17 

Items can be sent with the student and delivered to their grade level science teacher. They also can be left in the front office with a note stating the grade level so organizers know which basket they should be placed in. It is requested that all items be donated by

Thursday, March 8, in order that there is sufficient time to assemble the baskets. Volunteers are needed to help with the STEM Festival. For more information, go to http:// www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0f4bafab2ba0fe3okmstem.

HANOVER COUNTY, VIRGINIA NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING AND PROPOSED REAL PROPERTY TAX INCREASE The County of Hanover, Virginia proposes to increase real property tax levies. 1. Assessment Increase: Total assessed value of real property, excluding additional assessments due to new construction or improvements to property, exceeds last year’s total assessed value of real property by 2.68 percent. 2. Lowered Rate Necessary to Offset Increased Assessment: The tax rate which would levy the same amount of real estate tax as last year, when multiplied by the new total assessed value of real estate with the exclusions mentioned above, would be $0.79 per $100 of assessed value. This rate will be known as the “lowered tax rate.” 3. Effective Rate Increase: The County of Hanover proposes to adopt a tax rate of $0.81 per $100 of assessed value. This is the same as the 2017 tax rate. The difference between the lowered tax rate and the proposed rate would be $0.02 per $100, or 2.5 percent. This difference will be known as the “effective tax rate increase.” Individual property taxes may, however, increase at a percentage greater than or less than the above percentage. 4. Proposed Total Budget Increase: Based on the proposed real property tax rate and changes in other revenues, the total budget of the County of Hanover will increase 5.1% from that of last year. The General Fund budget is increasing by 4.6% from the fiscal year 2018 budget. A Public Hearing on the increase and the proposed tax rate listed above will be held on Wednesday, April 4, 2018, at 7:15 p.m. in the Board Room of the Hanover County Administration Building, 7516 County Complex Road, Hanover, Virginia.

CancerLINC receives $5K grant from Dominion Energy Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com RICHMOND -- CancerLINC, a nonprofit organization established to connect cancer patients and their families with legal assistance as well as financial and community resources, has received a $5,000 grant from the Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation, the charitable arm of Dominion Energy. The funds will be used to support CancerLINC’s core services, which are provided at no charge, throughout 2018. According to Denise Kranich, executive director of CancerLINC and a cancer survivor herself, the organization primarily serves the City of Richmond, Petersburg, Hopewell, Colonial Heights, and the 13 surrounding counties of Amelia, Caroline, Charles City, Chesterfield, Dinwiddie, Goochland, Hanover, Henrico, King William, New Kent, Powhatan, Prince George, and Sussex.

“We link cancer patients with our 200 pro bono volunteer attorneys and financial consultants to alleviate many of the legal and financial burdens that can keep cancer patients from focusing on battling the disease and recovering. Each year, we help about 600 people with 1,000 different issues,” she said. CancerLINC is headquartered in Chesterfield County. For more information, visit cancerlinc.org. As part of its ongoing commitment to communities, Dominion Energy launched the new year with more than $1 million in Critical Community Needs grants to help feed, shelter and care for people in need across the company’s footprint.

Chapman, Gardner win Class 5 track titles By Parker Cotton Richmond Times-Dispatch HAMPTON – After clearing 16 feet, 5 inches in the pole vault on Friday, the first person Atlee senior William Chapman hugged was Lee-Davis senior Alex Slinkman. With the vault on the first day of the Class 5/Class 6 indoor track and field championships, Chapman broke Atlee’s school record, broke the Class 5 state meet record, broke the Boo Williams Sportsplex facility record and recorded the second-best vault ever in Virginia. He also won his first state title. “With all the work I’ve put in, it’s all paid off,” said Chapman. “It means a lot.” Chapman and Slinkman are teammates at Aim High Pole Vault Club in Mechanicsville, but they are fiercely competitive when competing for their high schools. “We practice there three days a week, and we’re very close,” Chapman said. “But when we get on the runway, it’s a rivalry.” Slinkman won the indoor title when both were juniors, and Chapman was runnerup. This year, the roles were reversed, and Chapman finally has a championship of his own. Slinkman cleared 15-6 but made no attempts at another height. Chapman cleared 16 feet on his first attempt to place first

Atlee’s Cason Gardner clears the bar en route to winning the VHSL Class 5 high jump championship at Boo Williams Saturday.

and then set his sights higher. He achieved 16-5 on his second attempt. “In the pole vaulting community, the ‘5 Meter Club’ is where you want to go, and that’s about 16-4.25, and that’s always been one of my goals,” said Chapman, who will vault for Samford University next year. Atlee had two other pole vaulters in the top 10: John Thumma, who finished third, and John Duegaw, who finished

fifth. The Raiders got another state championship Friday courtesy of senior Cason Gardner in the high jump. Gardner cleared 6-6 on his second attempt and popped back up pumping his right fist. He knew he was a state champion again. Gardner, a George Mason commit, cleared 6-6 at this meet last year as a junior, tying the state meet record and winning

the high jump crown. He placed third as a sophomore, and he said ending his career with two titles was a special moment. “Placing third as a sophomore was big for me,” Gardner said. “Freshman year is when I started running track, and it was always a goal of mine — ‘I want a ring. I want a state championship.’ It was always in the back of my mind during workouts.” Keyonte Midgett of

Highland Springs was third in the high jump (6-4). Highland Springs senior Ben Clay III set the Class 5 state meet record in the shot put with a throw of 56-8 to win the event. His personal record entering the day was 54-2. He was challenged mostly by North Stafford senior Darnell Council in the final flight, but Clay overcame several faults to see TITLES, pg. 28

SALEM – Hanover and Patrick Henry’s boys track teams sent relatively small continents to the Virginia High School League Class 4 indoor track and field championships at Roanoke College Friday and Saturday, but those contingents performed well despite the fact that Loudoun Valley left little air for anyone else to breathe at awards time. The Vikings outran second place E.C. Glass 93-51 to claim the boys team title. Both Hanover and Patrick Henry sent six boys to the event, with the Hawks finishing 14th with 15.5 points and the Patriots in a tie for 28th with four. see EXCEL, pg. 28

Eastern View puts end to Hawk girls’ season By Chuck Jackson For the Star-Exponent CULPEPER – Down by a point, 56-55 Friday night, after top-seed Eastern View’s Montana Hoffman missed two free throws, No. 4 Hanover seemed poised to use the final 11 seconds looking for an open shot victory. But a front-court pass got picked by the Cyclones’ Kendra Williams – who then dribbled downcourt all alone for the layup – giving Eastern View a 58-55 Region 4B semifinal win and the school’s second trip to the state tournament in its 10-year history. “We all knew they were going to pass to the right side because we had an excellent defense on the left side,” Williams said. “I saw the pass, I saw my opening and I took it. My heart was racing and I’ve had buzzer-beaters before in games when I played at South Lakes but never here. “All I was thinking before the steal was they could have scored a 3 and our season would have been over.” Instead, the Cyclones’ bench went wild and head coach Mike McCombs, who has been the team’s only coach, jumped with joy, getting a joint hug from daughters Emily and Makayla, who are members of the team. “We’re trying to make history,” McCombs said. “We went to states in 2010 but lost in the first game. We also lost the regional title the night before that game. “We don’t play again until Monday for the regional championship so I’m going to enjoy this one and the girls will get a breather before moving on.” Eastern View hosted Monacan, victors over Caroline in the other semi played Friday night, on Monday night after this edition went to press. The Cyclones led 10-8 after the first quarter, rallying from

in part to 6-1 center Sarah Johnson. But McCombs countered that at halftime, making a couple adjustments that stopped the Hawks’ high-post zone while keeping the bigs on the blocks, giving his team a 3-on-2 advantage. He also spread his offense, putting Williams on the block. That opened lanes allowing Williams to score and she

did, leading both teams with 28 points. McCombs got a scare when forward Kayla Clore exited the floor with 3:33 left in the game and his team ahead 50-45, with an asthma attack but needed not worry as Anya Lawson took her place with quality minutes and a bucket. Hanover pulled within two points, 55-53 on a Johnson jumper but Clore returned just

in time to see Williams make a free throw with 24 seconds left. Julia Mardigian (14 points) scored a layup for the Hawks with 14 seconds left for her team’s final points. Metzger finished with a team-high 15 points for Hanover and Greene scored 19 for the Cyclones. Chuck Jackson can be reached at sports@mechlocal. com.

MECHANICSVILLE – Relying on aggressiveness and untamed effort, Hanover overwhelmed visiting Chancellor 40-24 in a Region 4B girls basketball quarterfinal Wednesday. The fourth-seeded Hawks’ victory set up a road trip to top-seeded Eastern View in Culpeper in a semifinal Friday. Hanover’s zone defense has been a reliable ally nearly all season long and it proved reliable again against Chancellor. Their activity clogged passing lanes, shut down drives and forced turnovers, limiting the Chargers to six total field goals and singledigit scoring outputs in each of the four quarters. “Awesome effort tonight; executed our defensive game plan to perfection, I thought,” said Hanover head coach Mike Rohr. “That team can score. I thought that we did exactly what we practiced on and got it done.” Hanover (16-7) was seeing its first game action in five days and the game had some choppy, erratic play early, but the Hawks jumped out to a seven-point halftime lead, 18-11, behind freshman forward Julia Mardigian’s 10 points. She finished with a game-high 14. The Hawks’ took control of the game late in the third quarter and into the early stages of the fourth, going on a 13-0 see HANOVER, pg. 27

run, with junior center Sarah Johnson supplying six points during the decisive stretch. The surge started with a 3-pointer by sophomore guard Madison Miller that sent Rohr airborne in celebration as his team showed signs of shedding some rust. There was much more to like in the coming minutes. Miller followed her trey by using her

vision to find Sarah Johnson on a beautiful touch pass on the ensuing possession as Rohr gritted his teeth and punched the air with his fist in enthusiasm. Time out, Chancellor. The Hawks’ were flying. Ever-steady Hanover senior point guard Rachael Metzger scored the first four points of the fourth. Johnson executed a perfect pump fake that cleared the way for a straight-line dribble drive and added two free throws to all but finish off the Chargers.

Johnson finished the game with 10 points. Juniors Bianca Atkinson and Isis Moore led Chancellor with nine points. Sophomore Jasmine Tally, the Chargers’ most potent and reliable offensive weapon and the focus of Hanover’s defense, was limited to five points. Hanover’s defense pushed Chancellor’s offense to the perimeter, forcing them into low percentage jump shots for most of the game. Chancellor opened the tour-

nament with an eight-point win over Louisa on Feb. 19, but couldn’t find their rhythm against Hanover’s constant activity and suffocating defense. “We feed off our defense and are good enough on the defensive end,” Rohr said. “We’ll figure it out offensively.” Chancellor concluded the season with a 16-8 record. Hanover, meanwhile, was two wins away from reaching states. “I told ’em, ‘Why not win the whole thing?’ ” Rohr said.

SALEM – As it prepared for the Old Dominion Athletic Conference basketball championships, Randolph-Macon’s women knew one thing: They wanted another shot at Emory & Henry. Sunday, in the ODAC final at Salem Civic Center, they got it. And anyone watching, listening to or otherwise keeping up with the game online were rewarded with a seesaw battle from the start. The Yellow Jackets were even more rewarded – with the title after they stung the Wasps with four points in the final 52 seconds to claim a 72-68 win. They earned the ODAC’s automatic bid to the NCAA Division III women’s basketball tournament. The Yellow Jackets will host the first two rounds, with the first-round games to be played Friday in Crenshaw Gymnasium. Other teams in the Ashland Regional are Christopher Newport, Valley Forge and Haverford. The exact bracket was to be announced after this edition went to press. Randolph-Macon led 68-62 with 1:44 left in the game before Emory & Henry rallied to tie the game at 68-all with 52 seconds on the clock. Two time-

outs and a layup and two free throws by guard Jayla Wade later, the Yellow Jackets were getting ready to ceremonially cut down the net. “It was a great game, at least for people to sit there and watch, and it certainly was a great game for me to coach,” said Randolph-Macon head women’s basketball coach Carroll LaHaye. “It was just two great teams – quality teams – going at it. … One team would get up, the other team would catch up. The team that was behind before would go ahead, then the other team would have to catch up.” Time had almost expired before Randolph-Macon’s impending victory became clear. “At 1.6 seconds left in the game, … Emory & Henry turned [the ball] over after three opportunities to tie it,” LaHaye said. “We got the ball inbounds and they fouled Jayla right away. She went to the freethrow line and scored and put it to a two-possession game.” Success at the foul line was one of the key factors getting the Yellow Jackets to, much less winning, the final. RandolphMacon has struggled with freethrow shooting all season. But it see ODAC, pg. 28 

the third quarter gave them an eight-point advantage entering the final stanza. Senior forward Devynn Mauck paced the Cavaliers with 14 points, while senior guard NyAsia Brown added nine.

proved a strength in their 65-62 semifinal win over Virginia Wesleyan as well as against Emory & Henry. “Our free throws, they were rough at the beginning [of the season],” said sophomore forward Kelly Williams. “We’ve practiced them so much.” Williams shot 11-of-14 from the line in the final, and she shot 15-of-23 in the semifinal. She went through the ODAC tournament with three straight double-doubles, finishing with 31 points and 20 rebounds against Emory & Henry and with 29 points and 16 rebounds against the Marlins.

Loudoun Valley’s girls also did well, finishing four points behind champion Deep Creek 58-54.

We set five school records,” said Hanover head coach Rich Firth. “It was a good day. … Almost all of our performances were season bests, for the most part, with one or two minor exceptions.” Joiner beat her season-best time in the 500 by nearly two seconds, 1:16.24 to 1:18.46.

Macon’s men’s basketball team often struggled throughout the season to keep opponents down in the second half. Most of the time, the Yellow Jackets found ways to stay on top at the end of regulation time. But Friday, in an ODAC quarterfinal against Eastern Mennonite, a Randolph-Macon second-half swoon proved fatal. Despite building up a 15-point lead with 13:09 left in the game, the Yellow Jacket offense stalled and the Royals chipped away, eventually overtaking Randolph Macon for a 58-56 win. In the decisive rally, Eastern Mennonite – led by Maleke Jones with a game-high 22 points – outscored the Yellow Jackets 20-4. Isaiah HarrisWinn finished with 15 points and 10 rebounds for the Royals, who beat Randolph-Macon on the boards 36-27. Buzz Anthony led the Yellow Jackets with 11 points.

The Hawk girls 800 relay team of Deysia Oakrum, Kayvon Bagby, Morgan Crocker and Morgan Ferguson likewise beat its best mark, 1:48.91 to 1:51.63. That time was worthy of a fifth-place finish. Hanover’s sixth-place 3,200 relay team of Crytser, Joiner, Chloe Hill and Sidney Chesley improved by nearly 10 seconds 10:04.70 to 10:14.32. On the boys side, Joel Bowers improved his time in the 500 run by half a second 1:07.29 to 1:07.79. He finished third. Cole Myers, in a seventh-place finish in the 1,000, improved by six seconds, 2:38.73 to 2:44.73. Hanover’s seventh-place boys 3,200 relay team of Myers, Nathaniel Good, Mikey McGhee, Troy Charania improved by more than six seconds, 3:23.01 to 8:30.68. Joey Badalamenti finished

third for the Hawks in the boys pole vault with a 13-foot effort. Patrick Henry head coach Scott Brown was also pleased with his team’s effort at states. “We’ve been pretty good – some great performances with some great PRs,” Brown said. “Emmy Joyce took a lot of time off her [3,200 run]. Her sister Caroline did an awesome job in the 500 today. She PRed, took two and a half seconds off [her best]. Noah Campbell finished fifth in the boys 3,200. He was excited there.” One of the best Patriot performances Saturday came from the Patrick Henry girls 1,600 relay team. Despite running in a slower heat, Caroline Joyce, Alycia Richardson, Hailey Draper and Victoria Watts finished fifth, beating their season-best time by three seconds, 4:15.01 to 4:18.13.

llergies affect people of all ages. The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology reports that allergic rhinitis affects between 10 and 30 percent of the world’s population. In addition, the prevalence of allergic diseases has risen in industrialized nations for more than 50 years. Seasonal allergies tend to be the strongest in spring and autumn. Allergies can be exacerbated by many factors, including in homes where improvements are being made. Regular housecleaning can remove many common allergy triggers and help alleviate symptoms.

Leave carpet and upholstery shampooing to the professionals, as excess moisture can contribute to mold and dust mites, which aggravate allergy symptoms.

can help homeowners avoid them. Suit up Before any cleaning begins, allergy sufferers should don face masks and rubber gloves to prevent themselves from breathing in allergens or having them touch their hands, where they can be transferred to the face or elsewhere. Those cleaning should also wear clothes that can be easily removed and laundered after a day’s work. Clean windows singularly Prolonged exposure to outdoor allergens, such as pollen, mold or ragweed, can aggravate allergies. Therefore, if windows are being cleaned, do one at a time and then promptly close the window. Having the air conditioning running can help filter the air as well. Use exhaust fans The AAAAI recommends using an exhaust fan in the kitchen and bathrooms to reduce the levels of moisture in these rooms and filter out

potential allergens and odors. Moisture can eventually lead to the growth of mold and mildew, which isn’t healthy for anyone, including allergy sufferers, to breathe in. Invest in a HEPA filter Vacuums with HEPA filters can trap allergens that are so small that they pass through regular vacuum filters. That means instead of containing them, these small particles are only being shot back into the air where they are easily breathed in. WebMD suggests vacuuming once or twice a week to keep carpets and floors as clean as possible. Plus, don’t forget to vacuum upholstered furniture and drapes as well. Launder with hot water When it comes time to wash linens, do so in hot water, which can kill dust mites residing in sheets and blankets. Employ mattress covers to further protect against dust mite allergies. Shampoo smart Shampooing a carpet may cause moisture to become

trapped in the carpet fibers, leading to increased dust mites or mold growth. Spot-clean stains instead. Otherwise, hire a professional cleaner who will clean and dry the carpet as quickly as possible. Damp dusting is better When cleaning up dust or home renovation debris, use a damp cloth or a vinegar solution to wipe down surfaces. This helps trap small particles instead of sending them into the air. Treat mold issues Mold can trigger allergic reactions, so it is best to keep it out of a home. Solutions that contain at least 10 percent bleach can be effective at killing mold, but it’s best to prevent mold from growing entirely. That means keeping tabs of any moisture issues and addressing them immediately. Allergies can be problematic, but routine home cleaning in the right way can help alleviate symptoms. - Metro Creative

Spring home improvement

Prepare HVAC systems for warmer days ahead he arrival of a new season can be an exciting time. Homeowners may have renewed vigor to start home renovation projects or even tackle some cleaning and organization tasks. Before the weather starts to warm up too much, homeowners may want to evaluate their home cooling needs and ensure that all equipment is in good working order. Spring air conditioning inspections and tuneups are essential steps in system performance. Homeowners should not take for granted that a system that performed optimally last year will do so this year when temperatures climb. Various factors, including weather damage, dust and grime, mechanical wear and tear, and even rodent or insect infestations, can compromise HVAC systems. Since HVAC systems have so many moving parts, a thorough inspection of such systems can save headaches and money down the road.

T

According to Heating Ontario, the extreme weather conditions that come along with fall and winter can be especially taxing on homes and the systems that keep them comfortable. During a spring visit, an HVAC technician will perform maintenance on the air conditioner and make sure it is ready for the heat of summertime. This maintenance may include cleaning the unit, checking controls, calibrating the thermostat, lubricating moving parts, checking refrigerant levels, tightening electrical connections, and clearing any clogs. Homeowners are urged to also change the filter at the start of the cooling season. Correcting any issues in the HVAC system well in advance of the arrival of warm weather can help ensure comfort when air conditioning is needed. As an added advantage, homeowners should install programmable thermostats if they do not already have them to keep cooling as cost- and energy-efficient as possible. - Metro Creative

Many people consider installing security systems in their homes to improve their sense of wellbeing.

Some include personal monitoring, while others are self-install technologies with professional monitoring.

 What is your budget? Professional installation and monitoring will likely cost more than DIY kits.  How large is the home?  Are you tech-savvy?  How frequently are you out of the home on vacation or extended trips?  Do you desire emergency response?  Do you want an entire package or just some deterrent devices?

questions, it’s time to start shopping. Here are some DIY security system items that may be of interest. Smart home security systems These home security systems connect to a home’s Wi-Fi network so they can be monitored and controlled using a smartphone app. Others may be accessed through an application on the internet. It is important to look for a system that has the extra security of technology that is not easily hacked. Security cameras Some people may only want to watch the inside and outside of their residences. It can take mere minutes to set up wireless security cameras around the house. These devices connect to a Wi-Fi network and give customers free access to a constant stream of video. Some systems

just three that have affordable starter kits and video monitoring. Monitored alarm systems can be set to call the police or other emergency services if necessary. Entry-level or advanced systems Entry-level systems typically include a few door and window sensors, a motion detector and a hub that communicates with these sensors. This may be enough for someone in an apartment or small house. More extensive systems may include additional sensors, door locks, garage door openers, surveillance cameras, lights, sirens, and even water and smoke detectors. Do-it-yourself security systems represent a new wave to safeguard one’s belongings and family. Kits continue to evolve and have become more seamless than ever. - Metro Creative

Laundry room renovation ideas to reduce clutter Clean designs reduce clutter Simple, clean designs can be an asset in a laundry room. If budget and space permits, cabinetry built into the design will help keep items out of sight in the laundry room. Cabinets hung directly above the appliances can store detergent, bleach and fabric softener. Use cabinets elsewhere in the room as catch-alls for cleaning supplies used in various other rooms around the house.

Metro

An organized and efficient laundry room setup can make washing and drying clothes easier.

o former apartment dwellers or those who have never enjoyed the benefit of a dedicated laundry area, even the smallest washer and dryer space can seem like a luxury. The benefits of dedicated laundry rooms abound. However, disorganized laundry rooms can nullify such benefits. Depending on the needs and preferences of each homeowner, laundry room designs can be customized for convenience.

T

Employ vertical space Floor space may be at a premium in a laundry room, especially for those who want to devote as much space as possible to bulk-size washer and dryer units. Therefore, utilizing wall space is key. Use shelving, wire racks, hooks, and other organizational tools to store items on the wall. Shelves can be tucked into just about any space, and there are different options that can fit into corners or shallow

Incorporate a sink in the design Some older laundry room setups have a slop sink to drain discharged water from the washing machine. However, newer homes may have plumbing installed directly through the floor or walls. It is still a worthwhile idea to have a sink in the laundry room for rinsing out stains, handwashing items and having a go-to sink for messier cleanup. Utilize a tension rod A rod installed between two cabinets or across a narrow width of space in the laundry room is a handy spot to hang shirts or pants to prevent wrinkling. Repurposing a ladder and suspending it from the ceiling also creates a spot to hang clothes.

Consider laundry room flooring Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to select flooring materials that will not be damaged by contact with moisture or spills. Vinyl, tile and some composite products often make good laundry room floor materials. Resilient flooring that mimics the look of hardwood may add a classy touch, and give the appearance of wood without having to worry about damage. To alleviate fatigue while spending long moments in the laun-

dry room, invest in a memory foam mat that can be placed underfoot. Keep lighting in mind Lighting can be important in the laundry room. Rely on task lighting, under-cabinet strip lighting and overhead lights as needed for efficiency. Laundry room design can maximize the space available and make it more convenient to launder and sort clothes. Metro

ies have found that indoor air pollution levels were roughly two to five times greater than outdoor pollution levels. People interested in making their homes healthier can embrace these renovations and lifestyle changes. Inspect and service woodburning appliances A study published in the American Journal of Respiratory Cell and Molecular Biology has found regular inhalation of wood smoke limits immune activity and function, and anyone who burns wood indoors should be aware of these potential health risks. Ensuring proper ventilation of smoke and routinely cleaning the chimney can help cut down on particulate matter. Lighten up. Lighting is often underappreciated but can have a dramatic impact on whether a home feels inviting, warm and/ or uplifting. Experiment with different types of bulbs and lighting fixtures to turn drab and dreary environments into brighter places. Lighting may improve mood and productivity. Let the sun shine in Modify window treatments to let more sunlight into the house. There is evidence that the sun, particularly UV light, is a potent bactericide. The Sunlight Institute advises that there’s no harm in letting natural sunlight do its work, as bacteria within eight feet of low-intensity UV light can be killed in 10 minutes. Making a home healthier can be on the list of this year’s renovation plans. - Metro Creative
