STOPS AT EVERY HOME IN TOWN

More talks planned on changing school names By Jim Ridolphi for The Mechanicsville Local ASHLAND -- Following the presentation of a report outlining results from an online survey regarding name changes of two Hanover County Public Schools, Hanover County School Board members took no action and scheduled further discussion for an upcoming workshop session on Thursday, March 22. More than three-fourths of the more than

13,000 respondents favored no change in the names of Stonewall Jackson Middle School and Lee-Davis High School as expressed in a survey that ran four weeks during late January and February. The online response form provided space for respondents to list reasons for their position either to retain or change the current names of the schools and the mascot names. see NAMES, pg. 4

Students from all 4 high schools join in walkout By Jim Ridolphi for The Mechanicsville Local ASHLAND -- A small group of adults braved a brisk breeze as they stood across the road from the front entrance of Lee-Davis High School at 10 a.m. last Wednesday in anticipation of a student walkout to honor victims of the Parkland, Florida, school shooting.

ICHMOND –As part of its ongoing commitment to provide exceptional care for advanced heart failure patients, Bon Secours heart team has a new option for patients in need of bridge-totransplant or bridge to myocardial recovery, the HeartMate 3™ left ventricular assist device (LVAD). The innovative HeartMate 3 LVAD provides patients living with their device new benefits such as improved blood flow in a pump that uses full magnetic levitation to reduce trauma to blood passing through the system. “The HeartMate 3’s next-generation technology complements our comprehensive approach of providing personalized treatment plans for patients in the Bon Secours Advanced Heart Failure program,” said Roberta Bogaev, M.D., FACC, FACP, medical director of Bon Secours Advanced Heart Failure and Circulatory Support Center. “With the development of smaller, continuous flow LVADs, such as the HeartMate 3, mechanical circulatory support systems are becoming more anatomically correct for many of the people who need them.” More than 5.7 million people in the U.S. suffer from heart failure and approximately

915,000 new patients are diagnosed with the disease each year. For advanced heart failure patients who can no longer rely on earlier stage treatment options, an LVAD can help their weakened heart pump blood through the body and provide crucial support as patients await further treatment, including heart transplants. “Bon Secours has used the HeartMate II™ since 2010. The technological advances of the HeartMate 3 and its smaller size have resulted in a device that is easier to implant, electronically driven and extremely reliable,” said Steven Fiser, M.D., cardiovascular surgeon with Bon Secours Cardiac Surgery Specialists. “Following surgery, LVAD patients generally feel more energetic and are able to resume many, if not all, of their daily activities.” U.S. approval of the HeartMate 3 was supported by the MOMENTUM 3 clinical study, of which Bon Secours was a participant. In that study, patients who received a HeartMate 3 had significant improvement in their heart failure status, an 83 percent increase in their walk distance and a 68 percent improvement in quality of life at six months. Patients receiving HeartMate 3 also had an 86 percent survival rate with freedom from disabling stroke and reoperation to replace the pump at six months.

Tim Amos, left, president of the Mechanicsville Rotary Club, presented Col. David R. Hines, sheriff of Hanover County, with a check of $10,000 to support the Project Lifesaver program. Hines received the donation during last Wednesday’s club meeting.

Rotary donates $10,000 to Project Lifesaver program HANOVER -- On Wednesday, March 14, the Mechanicsville Rotary Club presented Col. David R. Hines, sheriff of Hanover County, with a donation check in the amount of $10,000. The donation will help support the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office’s Project Lifesaver program. In 2003, the Sheriff ’s Office became the first agency in the state to join Project Lifesaver International. The program offers the ability for the Sheriff ’s Office to locate loved ones and family members who wander due to cognitive disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, autism, and Down syndrome. “This is a free service the Sheriff ’s Office offers to our community,” Sgt. James R. Cooper,

public information officer, said, speaking on behalf of Hines. “A client will be outfitted with a watch-sized transmitter that enables the individual to be tracked should they wander.” “The Project Lifesaver program is another vital tool we use in service to our community. We understand that locating lost individuals in these populations is paramount and are pleased to continue to make this service available to our community. This program not only serves to keep our most vulnerable citizens safe, but also develops lasting relationships between the deputies and volunteers involved in the program and participants. We are extremely grateful for the generous donation made by the Mechanicsville Rotary Club,” said Hines.

NAMES

Additionally, respondents who wanted to keep the names said the names and mascots are not racist and changing them will not relieve any racial tensions that currently exist on the campuses. Respondents who favored a name change commented that a change would promote equity and provide an inclusive learning community for

Comments by those in favor of keeping the current name included financial considerations and the cost of changing the names, a need to preserve local history, heritage and tradition and a view that the majority opinion should be honored.

Peace to serve on House Select Committee on School Safety Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com RICHMOND – Del. Christopher K. Peace, R-97, has been appointed to the House Select Committee on School Safety. He was named to the panel by Speaker of the House Kirk Cox, R-66, on Thursday, March 8. Cox formed the committee to review state and local policy on school safety and make recommendations for consideration by the Virginia General Assembly during the 2019 Session. This is the first select PEACE committee formed in the House in 155 years. Select Committees are reserved for matters of considerable significance that cross the jurisdiction of conventional and established standing committees. (The letter that Speaker Cox sent to the Clerk of the House of Delegates outlining the scope, membership and work plan of the committee

appears on page 6.) Peace said of the appointment and the committee’s upcoming work, “I have heard from many families across our district about their concerns. Children and teachers deserve to learn in an environment free from fear for their safety.� “As the chairman of the House Budget Committee on Elementary & Secondary Education,� he said, “I am dedicated to finding the state share of necessary resources to support our school divisions in our shared important goal for improved safety on school campuses everywhere. I am honored that the Speaker thought well enough of me for this important Committee, and I look forward to the work ahead.� In announcing the formation of the committee, Cox said, “The House of Delegates led the effort in recent years to make our schools safer, but the tragedy in Parkland, Florida, shows us that we must be ever-vigilant when it comes to school safety. We are taking a bold and significant step today to make school safety a top priority of the House of Delegates.� “I am appointing the Select Committee on

OPINION | The Local Views

LETTERS

From the managing editor

No one should be afraid in a classroom By Melody Kinser Managing Editor How evil can one be to use a weapon and take aim at children? I don’t buy into the notion that everybody who behaves with such disregard to life is mentally ill. Some people are just wicked. I’ve never been a parent; it was never in my plan. So, I won’t attempt to one-up the advice given by the late Dr. Benjamin Spock on how to raise kids. But I do know that children need the attention of their parents -- and parents need to pay attention to what their children are doing with their time. And -- hold on to your seats -- children need to be disciplined. I went to public school when a paddle was used on unruly and disruptive students, and parents supported it. Kids could usually expect Round 2 when they got home from school. Granted, school operations were very different

“back in the old days,” but the idea of a student or former student or stranger for that matter bringing a loaded firearm into the building was inconceivable. No, we weren’t angels in the classroom all the time, but fatally harming someone just wasn’t a consideration. While the NRA is less than thrilled with the response by students across the nation expressing their feelings as those who have been or are potential targets, I applaud them for trying to make a difference in their futures. As I’ve said before, I grew up in a house with guns. I never had any interest in them, and I knew I better not get close to any of them either. The same went for the rifle my maternal grandfather kept beside his bed. It was strictly “Hands off!” Then again, I never had any fascination with guns or weapons. In my younger days, I was a bit

scrappy on the playground, but that was usually a case of defending someone who was being bullied. Today, however, is so different and so frightening. My thoughts and prayers have been with the many schoolchildren, teachers, administrators and families who have fallen victim to gun violence since Columbine in 1999. How do we comprehend such terror and then devise ways to prevent it ever happening again? This is not an us vs. them with the NRA and those who are trying to make our schools safer. It should be a united front to protect our most valuable resource: the children. Parents, please involve yourselves in your children’s lives. They may not like it, but do your best to keep in touch with their activities. And, if there are social issues, don’t ignore them. Too often we hear about the loner with the gun . . .

Student walkout drew attention to buying firearms By Jim Ridolphi for The Mechanicsville Local I’m as guilty as the next parent of sometimes not always giving my full attention to what my children say. It’s not something I’m proud of, and it’s also not unique. Who among us hasn’t been dismissive of a child’s discussion, or only halfheartedly responded to a question? Even in those moments of weak-

ness, I’ve always understood that those comments are important, probably more important than the discussions I have with adults on a given day. There is wisdom in the voices of those who speak in unaltered and innocent terms without the prejudice and opinions that many of us acquire throughout our lives. here’s also a subtle beauty in a view not hindered by the responsibilities of adult life uttered in the most simple

and direct terms. Last week, thousands of those voices were raised in unison to address a problem that has eluded resolution for all of my adult life. While my generation has been willing to live with the status quo regarding strengthened laws regarding the purchase of firearms, the current generation of kids seems less likely to ignore the issue. The issue is defined by valid argu-

ments on both sides of the debate, but there is one point that unifies the opposing views: the safety of our students in schools. At 10 a.m. on Wednesday, March 14, students across the nation walked out of class and spent 17 minutes, one for each victim killed in the latest Broward County shooting, remembering the fallen students. see WALKOUT, pg. 7

Speaker explains why he organized Select Committee (Editor’s note: The following letter, dated March 8, 2018, was addressed to The Honorable G. Paul Nardo, Clerk of the House of Delegates, State Capitol, Richmond, VA.) Dear Mr. Clerk, Recent tragedies involving unimaginable violence in our nation’s schools have renewed questions about state and local policies intended to safeguard and protect our children. It is our responsibility to ensure our schools are safe and that students can learn free from the fear of violence. Toward this end, the Virginia General Assembly has taken steps in recent years to strengthen school security. However, this issue is so complex and multi-faceted that it requires a special and dedicated review process beyond the time constraints of the current session. School safety is a fundamental public policy issue that encompasses the purviews and jurisdiction of multiple standing House committees. Therefore, I am appointing a Select Committee on School Safety to review comprehensively state and local policies relating to school security and protection. The committee’s scope of work will be limited to strengthening emergency preparedness, hardening school security infrastructure, implementing security best practices, deploying additional security personnel, providing additional behavioral health resources for students, and developing prevention protocols at primary and secondary institutions across the Commonwealth. The Select Committee will make policy recommendations for consideration by the General Assembly during the 2019 Session. see LETTERS, pg. 8

WALKOUT Continued from pg. 6 

The display also recognized the long list of students killed in school shootings, a tally that has grown too long for some students who feel legislators are not doing enough to keep their schools safe. The students’ active voice in this national debate seems to have broken a logjam that has seen the same pattern emerge after each disastrous event on our campuses. Prayers and thoughts for the victims are followed by inaction and a quiet before the next storm erupts on another campus in another city. Solutions are not easily

defined, and the walkout does not endorse one policy versus another, but highlights the need to have the discussion. And the efforts haven’t gone unnoticed. Florida Gov. Rick Scott recently signed new gun control and school safety measures that would have seemed unimaginable a decade ago. President Trump was scheduled to unveil a national plan this week offering options for school safety and more extensive background checks. Both of these measures are in response to a national outcry from students regarding the safety of their schools, and their voice represents a new generational angle in discussions that affect their lives, their futures. It’s also a stark reminder that

things change and just because we have grown accustomed to doing things in a certain way is no guarantee that future generations won’t search for better methods or more efficient solutions. Most importantly, the event this week is a valuable civics lesson for students who all too often seem left out of the conversation. Their protest reinforces what citizens hold dear in America: the right to be heard and voice opinions without fear of repercussion. What the whole discussion means for the future of guns in this country is uncertain, but the importance of the voice of the next generation is not. I’m ready to listen.

As you know, the appointment of a Select Committee by the Speaker is uncommon, yet not unprecedented. A Select Committee may be appointed in instances where a subject matter of considerable significance falls beyond the parameters of conventional and established standing committees. This appointment of a Select Committee is consistent with House Rules, past practices and long-standing customs of the House dating back a century. The Select Committee will be comprised of 22 members of the House of Delegates and

will reflect the principle of proportional representation. I am appointing the following members to the House Select Committee on School Safety: Kirk Cox (Chair), Steve Landes, Chris Jones, Tommy Wright, Rob Bell, Danny Marshall (Vice Chair), Todd Gilbert, Chris Peace, Barry Knight, Roxann Robinson, Israel O’Quinn, Nick Rush, Vivian Watts, Mark Sickles, David Toscano, Charniele Herring, Luke Torian, Paul Krizek, Steve Heretick, Mike Mullin, Jeff Bourne, and Schuyler VanValkenburg. The Committee will be supported primarily by the House Clerk’s Office, with technical support provided by the Division of Legislative Services and the Joint Legislative Audit and Review Commission. In addition to in-house staff support, the Committee may contract with outside vendors for specific and specialized support at any time during the Committee’s work. Further, I authorize the House Clerk’s

Office to pay interim compensation and issue reimbursements for member travel associated with the Committee’s work. The Committee will have an organizational meeting no later than May 1, 2018 and may have as many as four meetings in Richmond, unless otherwise noted. The Committee shall complete its work by November 15, 2018 and produce a final report containing recommendations for the 2019 General Assembly Session no later than December 15, 2018. I am proud of the steps we have taken in recent years to protect our schools, but I will be asking this committee to undertake the important job of finding ways we can do even more to protect our children. I have full confidence we will be able to work in a bipartisan manner to seek practical, common-sense solutions that we can propose to our colleagues for consideration next session. Regards, Kirk Cox

rity best practices, deploying additional security personnel, providing additional behavioral health resources for students, and developing prevention protocols at primary and secondary institutions across the Commonwealth. He said the committee will not discuss issues related to guns or broader behavioral health policy that are being considered by other commissions or standing committees. The committee also will not consider security at institutions of higher education, many of which already have rigorous security requirements and are governed by national accrediting agencies that set guidelines for their security. “As I watched parents grieve over the loss of their children after the shooting in Parkland, Florida, I was struck by the parents who said our focus should not be on overly-broad gun control measures, but instead on the important work of keep-

ing our children safe,” said Del. Danny Marshall, R-14. Marshall will serve as vice chairman of the committee. “I am proud to be part of a productive conversation about securing our schools and look forward to beginning our work.” “When we talk about improving our education system, we must start with the safety of our schools,” said House Education chairman Del. Steve Landes, R-25. “This Select Committee has an important job ahead of them and I look forward to working with my colleagues to find practical solutions to ensure the safety of our children.” “This Select Committee will allow us to identify problems and consider solutions that will truly make our children safer in schools,” said Courts of Justice Chairman Del. Rob Bell, R-58. “As people often find in the House Courts Committee, translating ideas into actual

Friday afternoon, March 2, 2018, I was walking my two dogs and heard loud sirens. I live close to Memorial Regional Medical Center so that is nothing new. Then fire engines and EMS vehicles drove right by us and turned down my street. I hoped no one was having a heart attack or anything bad. When we walked around the corner I could see several had stopped in front of my house. Then I realized firemen were going to my house. For my safety and the firefighters I had to stop before I got to my home. A neighbor had seen smoke and flames on the outside and neighbors at the end of my cul de sac called 911. It was a fire in the front corner of my house that began in wiring inside the wall. HanoverEMS from Fire Station No. 7

quickly put out the fire and checked out the house top to bottom. While the Assistant Fire Marshal was talking to me, my next door neighbor took care of my dogs along with her own dog. She let me come in her house while I called my insurance company, and even brought me dinner! My other neighbors were trapped out of their house/ driveway for awhile ... they brought me extra flashlights, and both offered for me to spend the night in their homes, if needed. The fire department told me the power was off and not to turn it back on. Another neighbor called an electrician he knew who came out, figured out what caused the fire, and was able to turn my power back on. By 9 p.m., the heat was back on, I was eating a delicious dinner, and was safe with my dogs. see LETTERS, pg. 17

School Safety to comprehensively review state and local policies on school safety and make recommendations to the General Assembly for the 2019 session. The House has not formed a Select Committee in over 150 years, which speaks to the significance of this step,” he added. “The scope of work for this committee is specifically limited to school safety. We will remain laser-focused on the specific areas laid out in my letter to the clerk, and not allow more partisan issues to distract us from the important steps we must take to ensure that our children are safe in our public schools,” Cox continued. In his letter to the clerk, Cox specifically limited the committee’s scope of work to strengthening emergency preparedness, hardening school security infrastructure, implementing secu-

laws is hard work and words matter. I look forward to working with my colleagues.” Cox will serve as chairman of the Select Committee. He is appointing 11 other Republicans and 10 Democrats to provide the Select Committee with proportional representation in accordance with House rules.

They rejected claims that the decision should be based on majority responses and said school board members should approach the issue from a moral perspective. Both sides listed compromise options that included a

name change for mascots only. Lee-Davis currently calls its students Confederates, while Stonewall Jackson students are known as the Rebels. Carolina Lugo echoed those sentiments regarding the need to change the names, citing, “If we say that heritage and history are important to us, then we must tell the whole story of this history.

are submitted to the Recreation Advisory Committee and those members discuss the names to determine if they meet the criteria,” Sager said. Public suggestions also were accepted during the year-long process facilitated by online surveys, public forums and even a questionairre distributed at the Hanover Tomato Festival. In addition, Sager met with neighbors in the area to gather their input on the park. Five names made the early cut.

March 21, 2018

At its January meeting, the Hanover County Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission unanimously approved a motion to recommend three names for consideration. They included Ellison Park, Rock Hill Park and Elton J. Wade Sr. Park. Those three names were submitted to the board by Sager at last week’s meeting, but it seemed one stood out as the obvious choice. “Considering the life of Mr. Wade and how he gave back to this community, his lifetime membership in the Black

Creek Fire Department, his commitment and dedication to the community and the Cold Harbor area, I would move that we name that we name the eastern park Elton Wade Sr. Park at Cold Harbor,” said Scott Wyatt, Cold Harbor supervisor and Wade’s replacement on the board. Wyatt said there were many viable choices with the historical significance of the area, but, following his death, a park named in Wade’s honor seemed appropriate.

there were approximately 400 who participated; all went outside. At the middle school level, there were approximately 375 students who participated; the vast majority stayed inside the school,” Whitley continued. Students who participated in the demonstrations were issued unexcused absences for the time they were out of class and required to make up any missed work, but no formal disciplinary action was taken, according to the superintendent. Whitley expressed thanks to students who followed the guidelines and mounted peaceful demonstrations. “We are appreciative that students conducted themselves in a peaceful and orderly manner and returned to class immediately afterwards without further disruption to the instructional day.” Some parents, primarily on social medial outlets, expressed concern regarding the actions of some teachers who they contended blocked doors and prevented children from leaving the building. School officials said teachers and administrators are always on duty in the halls and there were no locked doors or blocked exits. One parent said her child was deterred from participating after reading Gill’s letter issued last week. “He was scared of

what might happen. It was a chilling warning,” she said. But an equal number of posters on other social medial sites praised the schools for their handling of a difficult situation. It’s a balance that indicates the difficult nature of addressing student demonstrations and how best to administer policy regarding these types of events. “We believe that we can strike a balance between respecting students’ right to free speech, freedom of expression, and civic responsibility and maintaining a safe and productive learning environment,” Gill said. The superintendent did not discount safety concerns faced daily by school administrators, but also noted the importance of hearing student concerns. “Without question, there are serious safety concerns associated with allowing students to walk out of school,” the superintendent said. “However, there are a wide variety of meaningful ways that students can work with their school administration to safely express themselves during the school day that is not disruptive. We’ve seen several positive examples of this within our division over the past month, including on March 14th.” Managing Editor Melody Kinser contributed to this story.

HHHunt wraps up residential part of Rutland area By Jim Ridolphi for The Mechanicsville Local MECHANICSVILLE -When a homebuyer closed on a new home in Rutland last year, the finalization marked more than just a new chapter in a family’s life and the excitement of a new home that accompanies that milestone event. The purchase marked the end of the residential component in a development that began more than a decade ago when HHHunt gained approval for an expansive multi-use project that encompassed several zoning districts and a variety of entities including retail, varying types of residential and a business/office component. Looking at Rutland today, it’s difficult to appreciate what those efforts represent to the thousands who call the Hanover neighborhood home. It’s one of several successful multi-use projects in Hanover, including Bell Creek and Kings Charter, that spearheaded the county’s entry into mixed-

use projects, a trend that has gained popularity nationwide. Rutland was originally envisioned as a project that would meet the county’s desire to transform a section of U.S. 301 that served as an important gateway to Hanover County. With available water and sewer, the plan utilized available services and developed the thoroughfare in a managed tiered manner. “The county wanted to see

growth in this area due to its proximity to Route 301 and I-295 and the availability of public utilities,” said Jonathan Ridout, HHHunt vice president of land development. The 200-acre-plus tract was owned by four landowners, and the historic property contained a cemetery for enslaved African Americans. More than 60 bodies were excavated and relocated to a plot adjacent to the restored and relocated

Timberlake House that now serves as a clubhouse for the Rutland community. Ridout said Rutland was HHHunt’s first entry into a “master planned residential community” in Hanover County, and he emphasized the importance of the commercial/ residential blend. He noted the community “includes single-family residential and townhome neighborhoods, as well as retail shops,

a full-service grocery, restaurants, daycare facility, YMCA, HCA emergency medical center, and an office park.” The county’s mixed-use zoning district (MX) was not established until 2008, but only one has been approved in eastern Ashland and none have been constructed. “There are no true MX, mixed-use projects in Hanover,” said Hanover planning director David Maloney.

“In addition to Rutland, the Bell Creek project and Kings Charter are also master planned multi-use projects. The yet-to-be-developed, but approved zoning for Caldwell Park at the intersection of Route 301 and New Ashcake Road is also a multi-use project,” he added. Maloney said it’s difficult to gauge the future of MX zoning in Hanover, but there is see RUTLAND, pg. 15

od prior to the board’s announcement regarding survey results. She emphasized the need to assist teachers if additional funds are available. Depleted funds for school supplies have forced local PTAs to provide more and more assistance for their respective campuses. “These teachers are depending on the PTA to purchase supplies, to pay for the copy machines, to pay for things that the PTA was not instilled to do in the beginning,” the former PTA president said. “If we are going to start talking about spending money on changing names, which I know is going to cost a lot, we need to think about the teachers,” Burcham said. “They’re the ones looking out for our children and the ones we need to start thinking about.” “I was the first of my race to become a teacher at Lee-Davis High School in 1966,” Harold Stills said. “I heard the stories and felt the pain of some

of my students.” “This issue is not going away,” he continued. “The issues that these Confederate generals fought to uphold will never have any appeal to a black person. No segment of the population should tell another just to get over it.” Stills urged the board to take decisive action on the name change issue. “I urge the board to take STILLS action rather than do nothing and hope the issue will go away. I urge you to do more than just survey a segment of the community, but rather consider the facts that the names of community schools should reflect inclusiveness rather than tradition.” Board chair Sue Dibble, South Anna District, said the board would consider the name change issue at a 1 p.m. Thursday, March 22, workshop session.

And that pedestrianfriendly aspect is an important element of the development, according to Ridout. “Lifestyle programming is key in making Rutland an active and interactional community,” Ridout said. “The connection of sidewalks and walking trails also provides another piece of pedestrian connectivity that you don’t typically see in many suburban developments.” The future of mixed-use projects in Hanover County will largely depend on the needs of the community it serves, but most agree each project must be designed to fit the unique needs of the citizens. “I think mixed-use developments can be very meaningful, but development is never a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach. There are many factors that contribute to the creation of meaningful communities,”

A sound proposal can provide flexibility, and create a living and employment environment that minimizes reliance on vehicles to help offset traffic congestion,” he said.

Renaming defames those who served (Editor’s note: The following was addressed to “Dear Members

of the Hanover County School Board.” The letter also was sent to “ Members of the Hanover County Board of Supervisors.”) As a long-time resident of Hanover County, as a member of a family whose history in the county goes back to pre-Revolutionary days ( and whose members served in that Revolutionary War) and who themselves were descended from individuals who came to Virginia in the early 1600s, and as the father of four children who attended Hanover County Public Schools, including Lee-Davis High School and Stonewall Jackson Middle School, I want to briefly express my strong opposition to the possibility of renaming those

two schools. To rename those schools would be to defame the memory of three of the greatest men in our history, and would consequently defame the names of all those who served under them in the Confederacy, including my great-grandfather and more than another dozen ancestors of mine. And it would defame the names of hundreds of thousands of young brave men who gave their all for their Southern homeland. And it would also consequently defame the descendants themselves. Personally, I do not know of a single individual, relative, friend, or acquaintance, who

approves of the renaming. The survey that you are taking is very unscientific, and anyone can take it without giving proof as who they are. To certify something does not mean a person is telling the truth. Certainly, there are much better ways to survey the Hanover citizens and that would be accurate. I ask you to set this matter aside, and let us return to sanity and respect for the truth. The War Between the States had absolutely nothing to do with slavery. There were a half million slaves living within the states that formed the Union. With all due respect, Michael T. Reardon Mechanicsville

Reader asks how renaming survey handled In response to your Facebook post about a survey showing a majority does not want county school names changed, I wrote this and would like you to publish in your print edition: Who did the survey? Was it a representative sample? How many people responded? What was the response rate? Who responded (age, race, ethnicity, gender)? How was the survey distribsee LETTERS pg. 23

County soccer teams feature youthful lines Atlee will look to use its defense to hold teams at bay and win low-scoring games.

By Jonathan Howard For the Mechanicsville Local Youth will play a major role in local high school soccer this season. Hanover and Patrick Henry’s boys teams are looking at extremely young rosters with a lack of varsity experience. Atlee is looking to replace key cogs on defense while LeeDavis and King William look to younger players with varsity experience to step into large roles from the previous season. On the girls side, Atlee is set to go through the growing pains of a young roster after losing a large chunk of players to graduation, while Hanover and Patrick Henry have rosters littered with experience from years past. King William and Lee-Davis have new coaches who seek to discover the strength and core of their teams as soon as possible. BOYS Atlee The Raiders lost two starting defenders and starting keeper Dylan Scott from last year’s team, but coach Lee Withers expects the defense will be as strong as ever. “Our defense is pretty solid, it always has been. This year we’re hoping to create and start scoring more than we did last year,” he said. Dylan Kraus is expected to lead the defense while a pair of

Hanover Laurent Body’s Hanover squad will look very different from last year’s team that finished 11-5. The Hawks lost 15 players to graduation, and will attempt to fill gaps across every line. “The team is very young so we work on the basics; touches, controls,” Body said. “Even if the talent is there, it is a little rough. We need to get everybody at the same level to be a serious contestant at the end of the season.” Expected to lead the way are a trio of senior captains: Jacob Mast, Kyle Cain and Grayson Sly. Cain and Sly will be looked upon to lead the defense in front of new keeper Austin Garrett while Mast will help control the ball in the midfield and push ahead to junior forward Ashton Poythress. Senior Ian Glisson is also expected to contribute to the offensive attack with his speed and athleticism.

Expectations are high for area lacrosse teams the past, he has had to make a lot of saves to keep us in games. As our defense matures he will only be better.”

By Jonathan Howard For the Mechanicsville Local Expectations are high for several local high school lacrosse teams this season. On the girls side, Atlee returns several starters from a team that went deep in the state tournament and Patrick Henry returns several players from a 10-win team. Hanover could have one of the better defenses in the area. Atlee’s boys return a strong offensive threat from a team that won 16 games and LeeDavis returns solid players on both sides of the ball and could be in a for a big turnaround in 2018. How do they all break down? BOYS Atlee The Raiders return six starters from a squad that won 16 games a season ago, and head coach Fielding Crawford thinks the team remains strong across all positions. Last season’s leading scorers Dylan Rice (60 goals, 15 assists) and Will Stockhausen (46 goals, 20 assists) are gone, but junior attacker Drew Miller and junior midfielder Andrew Cook return. The duo combined for 71 goals and 46 assists last season and will be looked about the pace the offense again. They’ll get an assist from Mason Walczak, who is expected to make a leap in contribution level at the attack position. “[Mason] is a left-handed threat that will help anchor the attack unit,” Crawford said. Walker Everhart and Hayden Moore will anchor the defense in front of goal, where junior Jackson Baitinger, recovering from a hand injury, is the starter. If he can’t go, sophomore Mark Isabelle will defend the net. Hanover

Patrick Henry The Patriots return only four starters from a season ago, and head coach Blair Penny will look for his returners to jell with a large group of younger players to maximize success. Senior Freddie Schools will lead the offensive attack and is expected to get help from junior Jake Huber. Ben Schubert and Mac Strange-Boston are solid starters in the midfield and will look to help Nick Cabell, a junior, develop along the midline. Quinn Archer is the leader of the defense.

Joe Mahoney/Times-Dispatch

Atlee’s boys lacrosse team lost some key players to graduation, but still has the experienced lineup to make a postseason run.

Perhaps the biggest concern this season for the Hawks will be replacing four-year starter at keeper, Tyler Cook. Sophomore Cole Newton has received the starting nod to replace him. Head coach Zack Carey is hoping defenders Jacob Atkins and Caleb Smither will make Newton’s transition to starter more comfortable. Senior Peyton Grubbs and junior Keegan Smither will be looked upon to provide the

offensive punch with an assist from attack Ward Smith and midfielder Chandler Atkisson. Carey said that this year’s group is very athletic, with players being able to move around from position to position. “We have a great group of athletes that we can move around on the field to give teams different looks. Once we figure out where everyone fits best, we will be in a good spot,” he said.

Lee-Davis The Confederates finished 5-8 last year, but return a wealth of experience for the 2018 campaign. Junior Randolph White returns as the team’s leading scorer, and he’ll be assisted by senior Jordan Stanley, who is moving from a two-way midfield role to a leading attacker. “[Jordan] is a team captain and leader on and off the field,” said head coach Phil

Feigenbaum. “Jordan brings a grit and determination to an attack unit that is completely revamped in both plays and style.” Senior Tate Smith will anchor the defense in front of sophomore Micah Rice, who Feigenbaum calls a “top-notch ball stopper.” “There are few goalies in the conference who see and stop the ball like Micah,” Feigenbaum said. “With young defenses in

GIRLS Atlee Eight starters return for Christian Dobson’s team that won 15 games and advanced to the state semifinals a year ago. Last year’s leading scorer Kylie Eastman, and All-Metro goalkeeper Savannah Clarke are gone. In Eastman’s place, a pair of seniors, Emily Karn and Jessie Peffer, will look to score up front. Peffer began to step up as a scorer at the end of last season and Dobson expects that continue this year. “She has gained so much confidence as a player and a leader in our offensive unit,” Dobson said. Freshmen Stella Harrison is expected to slide into the gap left by Clarke, and has the entire defensive unit returning in front of her, including All-Metro defender Kellyn McGlamery and veteran defender Kathryn Super. “I don’t think there are many teams out there that have the defensive presence that we do,”

Raider bullpen, offense get job done in win By Dave Lawrence Sports Editor MECHANICSVILLE – Atlee’s bullpen proved an asset as the Raiders opened their 2018 season with a 5-2 victory over visiting Prince George Thursday night. Three Atlee pitchers – John Kish, Jacob Smither and Preston Eacho – held the Royals to four hits and got plenty of offensive support, including a solo home run by first baseman Zach Beach, to claim a 5-2 victory. Kish and Smither threw three innings apiece while Eacho came in for the save. “It was a good way to start,” said Atlee head coach John Corbin. “We were a little apprehensive. We didn’t play that well to start the year in our two scrimmages, but hopefully we have gamers.” Prince George drew the first blood with two runs in the third

inning. The Royals opened with a single by Shane Cooper and a walk to Nicholas Sober. A wild pitch allowed both to advance, and a passed ball allowed Cooper to score and Sober to move to third. Sober then scored on a groundout by Tevin Tucker. Atlee settled down after that, though, and no Royal crossed the plate afterward. But the Raiders’ biggest adjustment may have come on offense. “The kids fought back and kind of changed their approach at the plate mid-game,” Corbin said. “We started putting more balls in play, put a little bit of pressure on them and were able to expand the lead.” Atlee seized the lead with two outs in the fourth inning. Beach kicked off the turnaround in a big way with his solo shot over the right field fence. J.T. Fitzpatrick doubled Dave Lawrence/The Local

Kemp Jones and forward Bryan Acosta. All three are expected to contribute early and often, but Hart, a smaller player, could play much larger. “Hart reminds me of an AllAmerican player I played with at Longwood,” Gittman said. “Never underestimate a player of his size. Great things come in small packages.” In goal, senior Charlie Epps will get the nod with Collins Vaught playing backup. King William Following a 4-9-1 season in 2017, King William will rely on a combination of upperclassman experience and freshman youth in the midfield to push forward. Sophomore Zaaron Foster is described by coach Dean Tyler as the most advanced player on

the team. He will attack out of the midfield along with forward Jeremy Vergara. Joining Foster along the middle line is senior captain Parker Slack and freshman Hunter Johnson. Johnson is already a co-captain for Tyler’s team. “He’s just very disciplined and he’s got such a good head on his shoulders and he sees the field so well,” Tyler said of the freshman. Slack, described as a gifted technical player, will play more of a defensive role and could drop back to center back when needed. Sedrick Jennings will lead a tall, athletic back line in front of the King William keeper. GIRLS Atlee Bruce Lovelace’s Raiders are

in for a rebuilding year after losing the majority of last season’s 13-5 team to graduation. What is left behind is a young group of players with a lack of varsity experience. “There is some good leadership in the seniors, and there is some young talent, so we’re looking to progress as the year goes along,” Lovelace said. Senior Grace Gompers (5 goals in 2017) will be looked upon as the lead scorer with support from Marypat McCombs and Kayla Rinderle in the midfield. Senior Lauren Johnson and sophomore Grace Alston will be looked upon to solidify the defense in front of new keeper, sophomore Nicole Sullivan. Hanover The Hawks return seven

starters from a team that went 10-3-2 last season, including several strong players in the midfield and forward positions. Leading the way is senior Lauren Didlake, who is a pure scorer. “Lauren Didlake is a coach’s dream. Her work ethic is second to none,” coach Manny Tavares said. “On the field she is a threat no matter what side she is on and her goal average is excellent.” Didlake will be joined up top by junior Rachel Andrzejewski, and they’ll be fed through balls from midfielders Courtney Rosser and Summer Hansen. Senior Allison Bunn is the leader on the back line, and will protect fellow senior Makenzie Hoang in goal. Hoang will start, see SOCCER, pg. 29 


Patriots sweep Powhatan in lacrosse opener By Dave Lawrence Sports Editor ASHLAND – Patrick Henry’s and Powhatan’s lacrosse teams wasted no time getting into their Region 4B schedules, opening their 2018 campaigns with a girls and boys doubleheader at Patrick Henry High School Thursday night. The Patriots made the most of the evening, the boys coming from behind with seven goals in the fourth quarter to seize a 17-14 win in the nightcap, while the girls outpaced the Indians 19-6 in the opener. Patrick Henry boys lacrosse head coach Blair Penny said the Patriots made a key adjustment in the fourth quarter that set the stage for their rally. “We just basically wanted to attack them from behind the cage because we felt that they weren’t staying on top of our crease guys, in terms of the offense, and leaving them open,” Penny said. “So it really was just turn the corner, beat them with speed, feed him if he’s open and if not, take the shot – and be a lot more patient than we were the first three quarters.” The intensified attack, which included more physical play, overwhelmed the Powhatan defense.

“We kind of got into more of a physical game, I think, than we probably should,” said Indian head boys lacrosse coach Joe Nile. “Lacrosse is one of those games where it’s more of a finesse game than a physical game. When you get into one of those pushing-shoving kind of things, you lose your edge a little bit. I think that’s what happened.” The Indians may have suffered from youth – certainly the Patriots handled the physical game better. “We’re always trying to talk to our guys – stay focused on what’s at hand. If somebody wants to talk or people get chippy, just walk away from it. Don’t get involved in it so you get distracted and it takes your head out of the game. … Avoid the dumb stuff,” Penny said. “Don’t put your team in a situation where you’re going to be playing a man down because you lose your temper.” It did not help, though, that the Patriot attack rarely missed its mark.

Hawk girls overcome Powhatan in soccer opener By Monica Hunsaker For The Mechanicsville Local POWHATAN – In any sport, the arrival of a new coach can be a challenge for a team. In most cases, it requires learning a new style of play, as well as adjusting to a new team dynamic. These factors can sometimes cause a slow start to the season as things take time to gel. However, Hanover showed no such signs under new head coach Manny Tavares in their season opener against Powhatan. The Hawks displayed free-flowing play and attacking prowess in their 3-1 victory over the host Indians. Hanover started the game in an attacking 4-3-3 formation, and the opening ten minutes provided a glimpse of what was to come. The key to the Hawks’ attack was the interchanging of positions amongst the front three of senior Lauren Didlake, junior Rachel Andrzejewski and freshman Ronin Von Ofenheim. Hanover took advantage of their early possession when they opened the scoring in the 11th minute. After a darting run down the left, Andrzejewski just managed to slip a pass through the defense

to Didlake, who slotted the ball into the bottom-right corner. “The girls up front played tremendous. I can’t say more about how proud I am of them, especially the combinations. On the first goal there were six passes before the goal was scored. Lots of play on the ground,” Tavares said. “It’s a true testament to their training, and their ability to adapt to a different style of play from a first-year coach.” The Hawks continued to generate chances as the first half progressed, but couldn’t double their advantage. Despite having the better of the play, Hanover found themselves level with Powhatan when the Indians equalized in the 34th minute. The teams went into the half deadlocked at 1-1. The tide of the game turned at the beginning of the second half, which played out in similar fashion to the first. A concerted spell of pressure by the Hawks led to a goal in the 50th minute, when a deflection off a corner kick found its way into the back of the net. “My style of play is to attack. Our girls train to pass and move in a quick attack game, to not give the other team any time to breathe. So we start out that

soccer with a different formation than many of them are used to, which is both challenging and rewarding,” Cummings said. Senior Haley Gordon and junior Logan Wells are expected to provide the offensive push, while sophomore Kately Agular and freshman Lauren Schenack can provide punch as both forwards and in the midfield. Junior Katie Davis anchors the back line for Lee-Davis while freshman Peyton Cooper is a fresh face to watch for along

way, fast and forward,” Tavares said of the quick strike just ten minutes after the break. Hanover did not rest on its laurels, continuing to pressure the Powhatan defense into the closing stages of the game. The Hawks sealed the win in the 76th minute with a powerful strike by Andrzejewski into the bottom-right corner. “I think we were fortunate to score the way we did because they’re a fantastic team, and hats off to them,” Tavares said. “I also think we could have scored more. We had a lot more of the play in their end.” Having started the season off on the right foot, Hanover’s next action will be on the road against Varina at Dorey Park on Friday at 6:30 p.m. Ellis Hopson can be reached at sports@mechlocal.com.

the back line. Patrick Henry The Patriots were set to look towards the defense to lead the team after losing eight starters to graduation, but injuries have already caused a setback. Defender Katelyn Brown has gone down with injury, and coach Anna Wright says it will cause some reconfiguration along the back line.

quick as you can,” Penny said. “Let’s not give them a chance. … Whether you’re shooting or passing, just move it.” The Patriot boys were led by Jake Huber and Freddie Schools with six goals apiece. Huber had two assists and Schools had one. Powhatan’s boys were led by Ethan Niles with four goals. Greg Palmore and Jared Somerville each had three goals.

Midfielders Julia Lafortune and Brooke Purcell are the captains and heart of the team and will look to play roles as both defenders and attackers. “With them together, we are able to transition very quickly and get the ball up top,” Wright said. Sophomore Jenna Hughes is the anticipated leading scorer and is described by Wright as having great speed and the ability to finish. King William

In the girls game, Patrick Henry’s offense – led by Ryann Peebles’ eight goals and two assists – pressed the Powhatan defense early and often and ground it down over time. “They’re a very skilled team and it kept our defense busy,” said Powhatan head girls lacrosse coach Laura Camp. “They have excellent ball-handling skills and worked their offense seamlessly. We were just trying to keep up and keep the pressure on.” Patriot head girls lacrosse

coach Anna Mason said the plan was to use Patrick Henry’s greater experience to best advantage. “They’re a very new team. … They’re defense was trying to learn to play our offense and keep up,” Mason said. “They were playing more man-toman. We were just making sure we were doing just what we needed to do.” Dave Lawrence can be reached at dlawrence@mechlocal.com.

First-year head coach Liz Donnini feels her Cavaliers will have a strong defense this season. Leading the charge along the back line are Rebecca Downey in the middle and Sophie Wilson and Gracie Ratcliffe on the outside. “They are really good at backing each other up,” Donnini said of the goup. The trio stand in front of senior keeper Jaycie Horner, who Donnini described as solid and aggressive player. “She is very good. She reads

plays well and comes out on 1-on-1’s,” Donnini said. “[The defense] can feel more protected back there in a dangerous situation.” In front of the defense will be center-midfielders Rosalina Volo and freshman Hannah Agostino. They’ll fade back on defense, but also feed the ball over the top to fast forwards Coral Sawdy and Brittney Resnick. Jonathan Howard can be reached at sports@mechlocal. com.

CANCER • Jun 22/Jul 22 It is very easy to become complacent, Cancer. Just when you thought your week would be routine, things get stirred up in ways you never would have imagined.

LIBRA • Sept 23/Oct 23 Family matters push to the forefront, Libra. This may require all of your attention for the time being. Clear your schedule so you can give this the attention it deserves.

CAPRICORN • Dec 22/Jan 20 It’s not worth getting into an argument to win a point with someone who doesn’t have all of the facts, Capricorn. Rest your case and forge ahead with what you know is right.

TAURUS • Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, when you get an idea in your head, it can take a monumental effort to persuade you to think otherwise. This week your ideas may need tweaking.

LEO • Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, if a career change has been on your mind, it may be better to dip a toe into the waters rather than jumping in all at once. Try an internship before making a commitment.

SCORPIO • Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, overcoming challenges as they are presented to you is one of the things that makes you so successful. But even the best task master needs some rest and relaxation.

AQUARIUS • Jan 21/Feb 18 A change of direction may not be the right fit for you at this moment in time, Aquarius. If you have been pondering a move, you may want to devote more time to vetting the idea.

GEMINI • May 22/Jun 21 Stop planning for the immediate future and start thinking long-term, Gemini. This way you can relax as much as possible and enjoy the ride knowing all things are in order.

VIRGO • Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, it’s understandable that you want to prove yourself as capable as ever. But accepting a little help is not a sign of weakness. In fact, it is a sign of strength.

SAGITTARIUS • Nov 23/Dec 21 You may find yourself at the center of social occasions, Sagittarius. If you want to be the life of the party, then go ahead. If you want to remain on the sidelines, that’s fine as well.

PISCES • Feb 19/Mar 20 Splurge on something that you have been considering buying for a while, Pisces. As long as you can afford it, you can splurge without any guilt.

We will be discussing what cognition is and how and why it can affect our daily lives. Useful tips to deal with cognitive challenges along with common scenarios that many people face everyday. Cognitive challenges are common and can be overcome! Register at: https://www.mscando.org/ multiple-sclerosis-programs/webinar-series/ cognition

Sometimes It’s Hard to Be a Woman: Women’s Health Issues in MS May 8th 8 p.m. to 9:15 p.m. Presenters: Meghan Beier, PhD Cheryl Blaschuk, RN, FNP, MSN Multiple sclerosis affects females at a ratio of 3:1, and is unique for every woman. MS remains a chronic, progressive disease, but there is ever growing information related to the treatment, management of symptoms, and better ways to live with this neurological condition. For women, it generally starts in the child bearing years, and may bring more challenges not only physically but mentally, and emotionally too. This webinar will show the ways MS can impact women at the various stages of their lives, and will explore healthy and practical approaches to dealing with these concerns. With knowledge, women can be empowered to face their lives with MS head-on and embrace every phase with grace, confidence, and a “can do” attitude.

ICHMOND –As part of its ongoing commitment to provide exceptional care for advanced heart failure patients, Bon Secours heart team has a new option for patients in need of bridge-totransplant or bridge to myocardial recovery, the HeartMate 3™ left ventricular assist device (LVAD). The innovative HeartMate 3 LVAD provides patients living with their device new benefits such as improved blood flow in a pump that uses full magnetic levitation to reduce trauma to blood passing through the system. “The HeartMate 3’s next-generation technology complements our comprehensive approach of providing personalized treatment plans for patients in the Bon Secours Advanced Heart Failure program,” said Roberta Bogaev, M.D., FACC, FACP, medical director of Bon Secours Advanced Heart Failure and Circulatory Support Center. “With the development of smaller, continuous flow LVADs, such as the HeartMate 3, mechanical circulatory support systems are becoming more anatomically correct for many of the people who need them.” More than 5.7 million people in the U.S. suffer from heart failure and approximately

915,000 new patients are diagnosed with the disease each year. For advanced heart failure patients who can no longer rely on earlier stage treatment options, an LVAD can help their weakened heart pump blood through the body and provide crucial support as patients await further treatment, including heart transplants. “Bon Secours has used the HeartMate II™ since 2010. The technological advances of the HeartMate 3 and its smaller size have resulted in a device that is easier to implant, electronically driven and extremely reliable,” said Steven Fiser, M.D., cardiovascular surgeon with Bon Secours Cardiac Surgery Specialists. “Following surgery, LVAD patients generally feel more energetic and are able to resume many, if not all, of their daily activities.” U.S. approval of the HeartMate 3 was supported by the MOMENTUM 3 clinical study, of which Bon Secours was a participant. In that study, patients who received a HeartMate 3 had significant improvement in their heart failure status, an 83 percent increase in their walk distance and a 68 percent improvement in quality of life at six months. Patients receiving HeartMate 3 also had an 86 percent survival rate with freedom from disabling stroke and reoperation to replace the pump at six months.

Rotary donates $10,000 to Project Lifesaver program

HANOVER -- On Wednesday, March 14, the Mechanicsville Rotary Club presented Col. David R. Hines, sheriff of Hanover County, with a donation check in the amount of $10,000. The donation will help support the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office’s Project Lifesaver program. In 2003, the Sheriff ’s Office became the first agency in the state to join Project Lifesaver International. The program offers the ability for the Sheriff ’s Office to locate loved ones and family members who wander due to cognitive disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, autism, and Down syndrome. “This is a free service the Sheriff ’s Office offers to our community,” Sgt. James R. Cooper,

public information officer, said, speaking on behalf of Hines. “A client will be outfitted with a watch-sized transmitter that enables the individual to be tracked should they wander.” “The Project Lifesaver program is another vital tool we use in service to our community. We understand that locating lost individuals in these populations is paramount and are pleased to continue to make this service available to our community. This program not only serves to keep our most vulnerable citizens safe, but also develops lasting relationships between the deputies and volunteers involved in the program and participants. We are extremely grateful for the generous donation made by the Mechanicsville Rotary Club,” said Hines.

Additionally, respondents who wanted to keep the names said the names and mascots are not racist and changing them will not relieve any racial tensions that currently exist on the campuses. Respondents who favored a name change commented that a change would promote equity and provide an inclusive learning community for

Comments by those in favor of keeping the current name included financial considerations and the cost of changing the names, a need to preserve local history, heritage and tradition and a view that the majority opinion should be honored.

Peace to serve on House Select Committee on School Safety Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com

RICHMOND – Del. Christopher K. Peace, R-97, has been appointed to the House Select Committee on School Safety. He was named to the panel by Speaker of the House Kirk Cox, R-66, on Thursday, March 8. Cox formed the committee to review state and local policy on school safety and make recommendations for consideration by the Virginia General Assembly during the 2019 Session. This is the first select PEACE committee formed in the House in 155 years. Select Committees are reserved for matters of considerable significance that cross the jurisdiction of conventional and established standing committees. (The letter that Speaker Cox sent to the Clerk of the House of Delegates outlining the scope, membership and work plan of the committee

appears on page 6.) Peace said of the appointment and the committee’s upcoming work, “I have heard from many families across our district about their concerns. Children and teachers deserve to learn in an environment free from fear for their safety.� “As the chairman of the House Budget Committee on Elementary & Secondary Education,� he said, “I am dedicated to finding the state share of necessary resources to support our school divisions in our shared important goal for improved safety on school campuses everywhere. I am honored that the Speaker thought well enough of me for this important Committee, and I look forward to the work ahead.� In announcing the formation of the committee, Cox said, “The House of Delegates led the effort in recent years to make our schools safer, but the tragedy in Parkland, Florida, shows us that we must be ever-vigilant when it comes to school safety. We are taking a bold and significant step today to make school safety a top priority of the House of Delegates.� “I am appointing the Select Committee on

From the managing editor

No one should be afraid in a classroom By Melody Kinser Managing Editor How evil can one be to use a weapon and take aim at children? I don’t buy into the notion that everybody who behaves with such disregard to life is mentally ill. Some people are just wicked. I’ve never been a parent; it was never in my plan. So, I won’t attempt to one-up the advice given by the late Dr. Benjamin Spock on how to raise kids. But I do know that children need the attention of their parents -- and parents need to pay attention to what their children are doing with their time. And -- hold on to your seats -- children need to be disciplined. I went to public school when a paddle was used on unruly and disruptive students, and parents supported it. Kids could usually expect Round 2 when they got home from school. Granted, school operations were very different

“back in the old days,” but the idea of a student or former student or stranger for that matter bringing a loaded firearm into the building was inconceivable. No, we weren’t angels in the classroom all the time, but fatally harming someone just wasn’t a consideration. While the NRA is less than thrilled with the response by students across the nation expressing their feelings as those who have been or are potential targets, I applaud them for trying to make a difference in their futures. As I’ve said before, I grew up in a house with guns. I never had any interest in them, and I knew I better not get close to any of them either. The same went for the rifle my maternal grandfather kept beside his bed. It was strictly “Hands off!” Then again, I never had any fascination with guns or weapons. In my younger days, I was a bit

scrappy on the playground, but that was usually a case of defending someone who was being bullied. Today, however, is so different and so frightening. My thoughts and prayers have been with the many schoolchildren, teachers, administrators and families who have fallen victim to gun violence since Columbine in 1999. How do we comprehend such terror and then devise ways to prevent it ever happening again? This is not an us vs. them with the NRA and those who are trying to make our schools safer. It should be a united front to protect our most valuable resource: the children. Parents, please involve yourselves in your children’s lives. They may not like it, but do your best to keep in touch with their activities. And, if there are social issues, don’t ignore them. Too often we hear about the loner with the gun . . .

Student walkout drew attention to buying firearms By Jim Ridolphi for The Mechanicsville Local I’m as guilty as the next parent of sometimes not always giving my full attention to what my children say. It’s not something I’m proud of, and it’s also not unique. Who among us hasn’t been dismissive of a child’s discussion, or only halfheartedly responded to a question? Even in those moments of weak-

ness, I’ve always understood that those comments are important, probably more important than the discussions I have with adults on a given day. There is wisdom in the voices of those who speak in unaltered and innocent terms without the prejudice and opinions that many of us acquire throughout our lives. here’s also a subtle beauty in a view not hindered by the responsibilities of adult life uttered in the most simple

and direct terms. Last week, thousands of those voices were raised in unison to address a problem that has eluded resolution for all of my adult life. While my generation has been willing to live with the status quo regarding strengthened laws regarding the purchase of firearms, the current generation of kids seems less likely to ignore the issue. The issue is defined by valid argu-

ments on both sides of the debate, but there is one point that unifies the opposing views: the safety of our students in schools. At 10 a.m. on Wednesday, March 14, students across the nation walked out of class and spent 17 minutes, one for each victim killed in the latest Broward County shooting, remembering the fallen students. see WALKOUT, pg. 7

Speaker explains why he organized Select Committee (Editor’s note: The following letter, dated March 8, 2018, was addressed to The Honorable G. Paul Nardo, Clerk of the House of Delegates, State Capitol, Richmond, VA.) Dear Mr. Clerk, Recent tragedies involving unimaginable violence in our nation’s schools have renewed questions about state and local policies intended to safeguard and protect our children. It is our responsibility to ensure our schools are safe and that students can learn free from the fear of violence. Toward this end, the Virginia General Assembly has taken steps in recent years to strengthen school security. However, this issue is so complex and multi-faceted that it requires a special and dedicated review process beyond the time constraints of the current session. School safety is a fundamental public policy issue that encompasses the purviews and jurisdiction of multiple standing House committees. Therefore, I am appointing a Select Committee on School Safety to review comprehensively state and local policies relating to school security and protection. The committee’s scope of work will be limited to strengthening emergency preparedness, hardening school security infrastructure, implementing security best practices, deploying additional security personnel, providing additional behavioral health resources for students, and developing prevention protocols at primary and secondary institutions across the Commonwealth. The Select Committee will make policy recommendations for consideration by the General Assembly during the 2019 Session. see LETTERS, pg. 8

WALKOUT Continued from pg. 6 

The display also recognized the long list of students killed in school shootings, a tally that has grown too long for some students who feel legislators are not doing enough to keep their schools safe. The students’ active voice in this national debate seems to have broken a logjam that has seen the same pattern emerge after each disastrous event on our campuses. Prayers and thoughts for the victims are followed by inaction and a quiet before the next storm erupts on another campus in another city. Solutions are not easily

defined, and the walkout does not endorse one policy versus another, but highlights the need to have the discussion. And the efforts haven’t gone unnoticed. Florida Gov. Rick Scott recently signed new gun control and school safety measures that would have seemed unimaginable a decade ago. President Trump was scheduled to unveil a national plan this week offering options for school safety and more extensive background checks. Both of these measures are in response to a national outcry from students regarding the safety of their schools, and their voice represents a new generational angle in discussions that affect their lives, their futures. It’s also a stark reminder that

things change and just because we have grown accustomed to doing things in a certain way is no guarantee that future generations won’t search for better methods or more efficient solutions. Most importantly, the event this week is a valuable civics lesson for students who all too often seem left out of the conversation. Their protest reinforces what citizens hold dear in America: the right to be heard and voice opinions without fear of repercussion. What the whole discussion means for the future of guns in this country is uncertain, but the importance of the voice of the next generation is not. I’m ready to listen.

As you know, the appointment of a Select Committee by the Speaker is uncommon, yet not unprecedented. A Select Committee may be appointed in instances where a subject matter of considerable significance falls beyond the parameters of conventional and established standing committees. This appointment of a Select Committee is consistent with House Rules, past practices and long-standing customs of the House dating back a century. The Select Committee will be comprised of 22 members of the House of Delegates and

will reflect the principle of proportional representation. I am appointing the following members to the House Select Committee on School Safety: Kirk Cox (Chair), Steve Landes, Chris Jones, Tommy Wright, Rob Bell, Danny Marshall (Vice Chair), Todd Gilbert, Chris Peace, Barry Knight, Roxann Robinson, Israel O’Quinn, Nick Rush, Vivian Watts, Mark Sickles, David Toscano, Charniele Herring, Luke Torian, Paul Krizek, Steve Heretick, Mike Mullin, Jeff Bourne, and Schuyler VanValkenburg. The Committee will be supported primarily by the House Clerk’s Office, with technical support provided by the Division of Legislative Services and the Joint Legislative Audit and Review Commission. In addition to in-house staff support, the Committee may contract with outside vendors for specific and specialized support at any time during the Committee’s work. Further, I authorize the House Clerk’s

Office to pay interim compensation and issue reimbursements for member travel associated with the Committee’s work. The Committee will have an organizational meeting no later than May 1, 2018 and may have as many as four meetings in Richmond, unless otherwise noted. The Committee shall complete its work by November 15, 2018 and produce a final report containing recommendations for the 2019 General Assembly Session no later than December 15, 2018. I am proud of the steps we have taken in recent years to protect our schools, but I will be asking this committee to undertake the important job of finding ways we can do even more to protect our children. I have full confidence we will be able to work in a bipartisan manner to seek practical, common-sense solutions that we can propose to our colleagues for consideration next session. Regards, Kirk Cox

rity best practices, deploying additional security personnel, providing additional behavioral health resources for students, and developing prevention protocols at primary and secondary institutions across the Commonwealth. He said the committee will not discuss issues related to guns or broader behavioral health policy that are being considered by other commissions or standing committees. The committee also will not consider security at institutions of higher education, many of which already have rigorous security requirements and are governed by national accrediting agencies that set guidelines for their security. “As I watched parents grieve over the loss of their children after the shooting in Parkland, Florida, I was struck by the parents who said our focus should not be on overly-broad gun control measures, but instead on the important work of keep-

ing our children safe,” said Del. Danny Marshall, R-14. Marshall will serve as vice chairman of the committee. “I am proud to be part of a productive conversation about securing our schools and look forward to beginning our work.” “When we talk about improving our education system, we must start with the safety of our schools,” said House Education chairman Del. Steve Landes, R-25. “This Select Committee has an important job ahead of them and I look forward to working with my colleagues to find practical solutions to ensure the safety of our children.” “This Select Committee will allow us to identify problems and consider solutions that will truly make our children safer in schools,” said Courts of Justice Chairman Del. Rob Bell, R-58. “As people often find in the House Courts Committee, translating ideas into actual

Friday afternoon, March 2, 2018, I was walking my two dogs and heard loud sirens. I live close to Memorial Regional Medical Center so that is nothing new. Then fire engines and EMS vehicles drove right by us and turned down my street. I hoped no one was having a heart attack or anything bad. When we walked around the corner I could see several had stopped in front of my house. Then I realized firemen were going to my house. For my safety and the firefighters I had to stop before I got to my home. A neighbor had seen smoke and flames on the outside and neighbors at the end of my cul de sac called 911. It was a fire in the front corner of my house that began in wiring inside the wall. HanoverEMS from Fire Station No. 7

quickly put out the fire and checked out the house top to bottom. While the Assistant Fire Marshal was talking to me, my next door neighbor took care of my dogs along with her own dog. She let me come in her house while I called my insurance company, and even brought me dinner! My other neighbors were trapped out of their house/ driveway for awhile ... they brought me extra flashlights, and both offered for me to spend the night in their homes, if needed. The fire department told me the power was off and not to turn it back on. Another neighbor called an electrician he knew who came out, figured out what caused the fire, and was able to turn my power back on. By 9 p.m., the heat was back on, I was eating a delicious dinner, and was safe with my dogs. see LETTERS, pg. 17

The House has not formed a Select Committee in over 150 years, which speaks to the significance of this step,” he added. “The scope of work for this committee is specifically limited to school safety. We will remain laser-focused on the specific areas laid out in my letter to the clerk, and not allow more partisan issues to distract us from the important steps we must take to ensure that our children are safe in our public schools,” Cox continued.

They rejected claims that the decision should be based on majority responses and said school board members should approach the issue from a moral perspective. Both sides listed compromise options that included a

name change for mascots only. Lee-Davis currently calls its students Confederates, while Stonewall Jackson students are known as the Rebels.

are submitted to the Recreation Advisory Committee and those members discuss the names to determine if they meet the criteria,” Sager said. Public suggestions also were accepted during the year-long process facilitated by online surveys, public forums and even a questionairre distributed at the Hanover Tomato Festival. In addition, Sager met with neighbors in the area to gather their input on the park. Five names made the early cut.

March 21, 2018

At its January meeting, the Hanover County Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission unanimously approved a motion to recommend three names for consideration. They included Ellison Park, Rock Hill Park and Elton J. Wade Sr. Park. Those three names were submitted to the board by Sager at last week’s meeting, but it seemed one stood out as the obvious choice. “Considering the life of Mr. Wade and how he gave back to this community, his lifetime membership in the Black

Creek Fire Department, his commitment and dedication to the community and the Cold Harbor area, I would move that we name that we name the eastern park Elton Wade Sr. Park at Cold Harbor,” said Scott Wyatt, Cold Harbor supervisor and Wade’s replacement on the board. Wyatt said there were many viable choices with the historical significance of the area, but, following his death, a park named in Wade’s honor seemed appropriate.

there were approximately 400 who participated; all went outside. At the middle school level, there were approximately 375 students who participated; the vast majority stayed inside the school,” Whitley continued. Students who participated in the demonstrations were issued unexcused absences for the time they were out of class and required to make up any missed work, but no formal disciplinary action was taken, according to the superintendent. Whitley expressed thanks to students who followed the guidelines and mounted peaceful demonstrations. “We are appreciative that students conducted themselves in a peaceful and orderly manner and returned to class immediately afterwards without further disruption to the instructional day.” Some parents, primarily on social medial outlets, expressed concern regarding the actions of some teachers who they contended blocked doors and prevented children from leaving the building. School officials said teachers and administrators are always on duty in the halls and there were no locked doors or blocked exits. One parent said her child was deterred from participating after reading Gill’s letter issued last week. “He was scared of

what might happen. It was a chilling warning,” she said. But an equal number of posters on other social medial sites praised the schools for their handling of a difficult situation. It’s a balance that indicates the difficult nature of addressing student demonstrations and how best to administer policy regarding these types of events. “We believe that we can strike a balance between respecting students’ right to free speech, freedom of expression, and civic responsibility and maintaining a safe and productive learning environment,” Gill said. The superintendent did not discount safety concerns faced daily by school administrators, but also noted the importance of hearing student concerns. “Without question, there are serious safety concerns associated with allowing students to walk out of school,” the superintendent said. “However, there are a wide variety of meaningful ways that students can work with their school administration to safely express themselves during the school day that is not disruptive. We’ve seen several positive examples of this within our division over the past month, including on March 14th.” Managing Editor Melody Kinser contributed to this story.

HHHunt wraps up residential part of Rutland area By Jim Ridolphi for The Mechanicsville Local

MECHANICSVILLE -When a homebuyer closed on a new home in Rutland last year, the finalization marked more than just a new chapter in a family’s life and the excitement of a new home that accompanies that milestone event. The purchase marked the end of the residential component in a development that began more than a decade ago when HHHunt gained approval for an expansive multi-use project that encompassed several zoning districts and a variety of entities including retail, varying types of residential and a business/office component. Looking at Rutland today, it’s difficult to appreciate what those efforts represent to the thousands who call the Hanover neighborhood home. It’s one of several successful multi-use projects in Hanover, including Bell Creek and Kings Charter, that spearheaded the county’s entry into mixed-

use projects, a trend that has gained popularity nationwide. Rutland was originally envisioned as a project that would meet the county’s desire to transform a section of U.S. 301 that served as an important gateway to Hanover County. With available water and sewer, the plan utilized available services and developed the thoroughfare in a managed tiered manner. “The county wanted to see

growth in this area due to its proximity to Route 301 and I-295 and the availability of public utilities,” said Jonathan Ridout, HHHunt vice president of land development. The 200-acre-plus tract was owned by four landowners, and the historic property contained a cemetery for enslaved African Americans. More than 60 bodies were excavated and relocated to a plot adjacent to the restored and relocated

Timberlake House that now serves as a clubhouse for the Rutland community. Ridout said Rutland was HHHunt’s first entry into a “master planned residential community” in Hanover County, and he emphasized the importance of the commercial/ residential blend. He noted the community “includes single-family residential and townhome neighborhoods, as well as retail shops,

a full-service grocery, restaurants, daycare facility, YMCA, HCA emergency medical center, and an office park.” The county’s mixed-use zoning district (MX) was not established until 2008, but only one has been approved in eastern Ashland and none have been constructed. “There are no true MX, mixed-use projects in Hanover,” said Hanover planning director David Maloney.

“In addition to Rutland, the Bell Creek project and Kings Charter are also master planned multi-use projects. The yet-to-be-developed, but approved zoning for Caldwell Park at the intersection of Route 301 and New Ashcake Road is also a multi-use project,” he added. Maloney said it’s difficult to gauge the future of MX zoning in Hanover, but there is see RUTLAND, pg. 15

od prior to the board’s announcement regarding survey results. She emphasized the need to assist teachers if additional funds are available. Depleted funds for school supplies have forced local PTAs to provide more and more assistance for their respective campuses. “These teachers are depending on the PTA to purchase supplies, to pay for the copy machines, to pay for things that the PTA was not instilled to do in the beginning,” the former PTA president said. “If we are going to start talking about spending money on changing names, which I know is going to cost a lot, we need to think about the teachers,” Burcham said. “They’re the ones looking out for our children and the ones we need to start thinking about.” “I was the first of my race to become a teacher at Lee-Davis High School in 1966,” Harold Stills said. “I heard the stories and felt the pain of some

No segment of the population should tell another just to get over it.” Stills urged the board to take decisive action on the name change issue. “I urge the board to take STILLS action rather than do nothing and hope the issue will go away. I urge you to do more than just survey a segment of the community, but rather consider the facts that the names of community schools should reflect inclusiveness rather than tradition.” Board chair Sue Dibble, South Anna District, said the board would consider the name change issue at a 1 p.m. Thursday, March 22, workshop session.

And that pedestrianfriendly aspect is an important element of the development, according to Ridout. “Lifestyle programming is key in making Rutland an active and interactional community,” Ridout said. “The connection of sidewalks and walking trails also provides another piece of pedestrian connectivity that you don’t typically see in many suburban developments.” The future of mixed-use projects in Hanover County will largely depend on the needs of the community it serves, but most agree each project must be designed to fit the unique needs of the citizens. “I think mixed-use developments can be very meaningful, but development is never a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach. There are many factors that contribute to the creation of meaningful communities,”

ner, a mixed-use project should be scaled to reflect the character and values of the community. A sound proposal can provide flexibility, and create a living and employment environment that minimizes reliance on vehicles to help offset traffic congestion,” he said.

Bartges focused on the theme and painted his works within a year. After 21 years as a full-time artist, he said he became aware of a slump in his enthusiasm for painting because, as he explained in a recent gallery talk, “I realized I had gradually slipped into simply producing artwork instead of creating artPhoto courtesy of Dan Bartges work, and to my mind there’s a “1 Pond + 4 Acres” continues at Gallery Flux in Ashland.

Hanover County is a great place to live! Thank God and our wonderful firefighters who quickly put out the fire. I thank all of my wonderful neighbors in The Villas at Rose Hill for their help and many messages of thoughts and prayers. Nancy Flippen Mechanicsville

Renaming defames those who served (Editor’s note: The following was addressed to “Dear Members

of the Hanover County School Board.” The letter also was sent to “ Members of the Hanover County Board of Supervisors.”) As a long-time resident of Hanover County, as a member of a family whose history in the county goes back to pre-Revolutionary days ( and whose members served in that Revolutionary War) and who themselves were descended from individuals who came to Virginia in the early 1600s, and as the father of four children who attended Hanover County Public Schools, including Lee-Davis High School and Stonewall Jackson Middle School, I want to briefly express my strong opposition to the possibility of renaming those

two schools. To rename those schools would be to defame the memory of three of the greatest men in our history, and would consequently defame the names of all those who served under them in the Confederacy, including my great-grandfather and more than another dozen ancestors of mine. And it would defame the names of hundreds of thousands of young brave men who gave their all for their Southern homeland. And it would also consequently defame the descendants themselves. Personally, I do not know of a single individual, relative, friend, or acquaintance, who

approves of the renaming. The survey that you are taking is very unscientific, and anyone can take it without giving proof as who they are. To certify something does not mean a person is telling the truth. Certainly, there are much better ways to survey the Hanover citizens and that would be accurate. I ask you to set this matter aside, and let us return to sanity and respect for the truth. The War Between the States had absolutely nothing to do with slavery. There were a half million slaves living within the states that formed the Union. With all due respect, Michael T. Reardon Mechanicsville

Reader asks how renaming survey handled In response to your Facebook post about a survey showing a majority does not want county school names changed, I wrote this and would like you to publish in your print edition: Who did the survey? Was it a representative sample? How many people responded? What was the response rate? Who responded (age, race, ethnicity, gender)? How was the survey distribsee LETTERS pg. 23

As a person who teaches survey methods, all these questions (and more) must be answered before the results can be examined or accepted. In addition, survey results are one thing, ethics another.

CANCER • Jun 22/Jul 22 It is very easy to become complacent, Cancer. Just when you thought your week would be routine, things get stirred up in ways you never would have imagined.

LIBRA • Sept 23/Oct 23 Family matters push to the forefront, Libra. This may require all of your attention for the time being. Clear your schedule so you can give this the attention it deserves.

CAPRICORN • Dec 22/Jan 20 It’s not worth getting into an argument to win a point with someone who doesn’t have all of the facts, Capricorn. Rest your case and forge ahead with what you know is right.

TAURUS • Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, when you get an idea in your head, it can take a monumental effort to persuade you to think otherwise. This week your ideas may need tweaking.

LEO • Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, if a career change has been on your mind, it may be better to dip a toe into the waters rather than jumping in all at once. Try an internship before making a commitment.

SCORPIO • Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, overcoming challenges as they are presented to you is one of the things that makes you so successful. But even the best task master needs some rest and relaxation.

AQUARIUS • Jan 21/Feb 18 A change of direction may not be the right fit for you at this moment in time, Aquarius. If you have been pondering a move, you may want to devote more time to vetting the idea.

GEMINI • May 22/Jun 21 Stop planning for the immediate future and start thinking long-term, Gemini. This way you can relax as much as possible and enjoy the ride knowing all things are in order.

VIRGO • Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, it’s understandable that you want to prove yourself as capable as ever. But accepting a little help is not a sign of weakness. In fact, it is a sign of strength.

SAGITTARIUS • Nov 23/Dec 21 You may find yourself at the center of social occasions, Sagittarius. If you want to be the life of the party, then go ahead. If you want to remain on the sidelines, that’s fine as well.

PISCES • Feb 19/Mar 20 Splurge on something that you have been considering buying for a while, Pisces. As long as you can afford it, you can splurge without any guilt.

THIS WEEK’S ANSWERS

CLUES ACROSS 1. Builder’s trough 4. Pouch 7. Adam’s partner 8. Zelda soldiers 10. Network of nerves 12. Heinrich __, poet 13. Algerian port 14. Reciprocal of one ohm 16. Title of respect 17.

We will be discussing what cognition is and how and why it can affect our daily lives. Useful tips to deal with cognitive challenges along with common scenarios that many people face everyday.

Sometimes It’s Hard to Be a Woman: Women’s Health Issues in MS May 8th 8 p.m. to 9:15 p.m. Presenters: Meghan Beier, PhD Cheryl Blaschuk, RN, FNP, MSN Multiple sclerosis affects females at a ratio of 3:1, and is unique for every woman. MS remains a chronic, progressive disease, but there is ever growing information related to the treatment, management of symptoms, and better ways to live with this neurological condition. For women, it generally starts in the child bearing years, and may bring more challenges not only physically but mentally, and emotionally too. This webinar will show the ways MS can impact women at the various stages of their lives, and will explore healthy and practical approaches to dealing with these concerns. With knowledge, women can be empowered to face their lives with MS head-on and embrace every phase with grace, confidence, and a “can do” attitude.
