5-2 vote keeps schools and mascots the same By Jim Ridolphi for The Mechanicsville Local

Wanda Burcham is a Lee-Davis High School graduate who supports keeping the names of the two schools. She cited other pressing financial needs in the school system that should take priority — projects like renovations of aging facilities. She also said the public spoke clearly in the citizens’ survey and the board should follow their input. Avi Hopkins also is a graduate of Lee Davis but said his experience was not one of inclusion or community. He supports changing the names and said the move would not change history, only the name of a school. Both spoke at last week’s Hanover County School Board meeting where representatives voted 5-2 not to change the names of Lee-Davis High School and Stonewall Jackson Middle School.

ASHLAND — The Hanover County School Board voted to not change the names of Stonewall Jackson Middle or Lee-Davis High Schools by a 5-2 margin at last week’s regularly scheduled monthly meeting. The panel also declined to remove the schools’ mascots, the Rebels and Confederates. Chair Sue Dibbles, South Anna District, said the board had received a large number of emails and other messages regarding what she described as

an “emotional issue.� She also noted a citizens’ survey that indicated an overwhelming support to retain the names and mascots. More than 77 percent of respondents chose not to change the names. “For the past eight months, we have received numerous emails, phone calls and personal conversations with our constituents during our travel in our communities,� Dibble said. “Of equal importance, we received significant feedback as a result of community input that we solicited a few months see SAME, pg. 15

Help Atlee robotics team get to big event By Melody Kinser Managing Editor Impressive! That was the first word that popped into my head as I listened to the three students from Atlee High School talk about the upcoming world competition for robotics. A junior and two seniors -- Sabrina Chin, Tyler Smith and Maria Wass -- came by the office on Thursday, April 5, to talk about their successes as they set their sights on the big event in Detroit, Michigan, on Wednesday, April 25. Now here’s where you can help: The team needs about $13,000 to go to the Motor City. A GoFundMe page has been set up to assist with fundraising efforts. The address to the tax-deductible site is GoFundMe.com/circuitree1599.

You also can send cash or checks to Atlee High School at 9414 Atlee Station Rd., Mechanicsville VA 23116. This is so exciting for Atlee High and Hanover County Public Schools. The students’ entry is named Splinter and has advanced them to the world competition. As someone who wasn’t especially interested in science (despite having a sister who had a Ph.D. in chemistry), it was amazing to listen to Sabrina, Tyler and Maria. Their enthusiasm was contagious -- so much so that I gave them a donation for their cause. Talk about getting caught up in an interview. The three are intelligent, dedicated and personable. Their team totals 61, with nine making the trip to Detroit. So, let’s talk numbers. Building Splinter cost

about $3,000; registration for the competitions can range from $4,000 to $5,000. Any amount you donate will help send Circuitree to Detroit. Circuitree officially became a robotics club at Atlee in 2005. Another tax-deductible way to contribute is through the Atlee High School Robotics Boosters Club. It is a 501(c)(3) organization. I know -- you read this last week in a front page article, but the need is great and time is of the essence to raise the needed funding. This is a major educational opportunity for some Hanover County students. We pride ourselves on the quality of education provided. Let’s ensure Circuitree gets to Detroit. Please -- open your wallet or checkbook and donate today.

Restaurant boom in the metro area started quietly By Jim Ridolphi Contributing Columnist I recently read that Richmond has one of the most robust restaurant scenes in the entire nation featuring a variety of dining and entertainment choices, fine locally brewed beers and unique culinary experiences in all corners of the city. I’m not sure when the eatery explosion began, but I do recall days past

when picking a restaurant was more limited than the potpourri of experiences offered today. The evolution of the abundant restaurant base that currently serves the metro area was more of a transformation than a reformation. A major part of that awakening occurred when a historic area of Richmond called Shockoe Slip became a gathering spot for recently come of age baby boomers looking to fully take

advantage of recently passed liquor by the drink laws. Even with the small conglomerate of local restaurants in the mid to later 1970s, the Slip was gentle and quiet compared to the hustle and bustle that marks the night on Cary Street on any given night today. Back then, the two blocks that comprised the slip were still a combination of abandoned buildings and crumbling tobacco warehouses, with

intermittent renovated spaces mostly occupied by restaurants. Eateries like Galligo’s, The Warehouse and Sam Millier’s dotted the dimly lit street, and getting to each of them was easy with only the passing of a lone car on Cary Street separating the trek. I’m not sure what attracted me or my friends to the area, but I can recall many a late night spent in an exposed see BOOM, pg. 8

Resident: Keeping school names is a gutless position The fact that the Hanover County School Board chose to keep the existing names of Lee-Davis High School and Stonewall Jackson Middle School strikes me as a particularly gutless position. Those people are there to lead, and, rather than do the right thing, they opted to kick a festering wound down the road for someone else to deal with. This wound that divides will not somehow disappear with time by ignoring it. The truly gutless part of all this is their hiding behind the façade of “majority opinion.” I would hazard a wild guess that an opinion poll taken in Hanover County in the 17th or 18th centuries would have determined that slavery was a fine institution. It wasn’t. The same type poll in the early to mid-20th Century would have determined that segregation, separate but equal, was equally fine. It wasn’t. In this day we have people believing that names that divide somehow represent a proud past. Get real. Try looking at the situation from a minority viewpoint. If you choose to believe the blather that the Civil War was not about slavery, be my guest. That view ranks right alongside the tooth fairy. Even worse than the war itself was its aftermath, a most shameful and dark period in our societal development. After the withdrawal of federal troops from the South, white militias ran rampant throughout the region; thousands of blacks were murdered, homes and churches burnt, women raped, all with the intent of intimidating blacks and keeping them from voting (along with poll taxes and literacy tests). The flip side of black subjugation was extolling white supremacy.

8014 Lee-Davis Road, Mechanicsville • 746-8665 www.bennettfuneralhomes.com Bennett Funeral Home was established in 1897 to serve the needs of Richmond families. Since then, this locally owned and operated business has continued to serve the community with its unique combination of caring and convenience.

All four facilities are under the personal direction of Charles D. Morehead, President. In a time of need, you can turn to Bennett Funeral Home with trust and confidence. It serves families of all faiths with personal service – before, during and after. There is a long tradition of professionalism and caring.

overwhelmed by an economically and numerically superior North. And, to provide everyday reminders of white supremacy, statues were erected of, and roads, buildings and schools were named after, the civic and military leaders of “The Lost Cause.” How is it that we suppose that our black populace finds pride of heritage in this degrading situation? So, here we have our Hanover County School Board, having had the chance to begin to heal the wound that divides, instead thumbing their collective noses at our American minority. Shame! It will take about two, maybe three years for the new identity to settle in for attending students; and the cost is nothing compared to what a unified student body will achieve.

In reference to “Rename schools tied to Confederates”: Slavery in the U.S. happened over 100 years ago and it is

covered treasure in those funfilled evenings on those two blocks of Cary Street. I suppose we were naive in not realizing this treasure would soon be discovered by a city, a state and a region. When months later, the doors swung open at The Tobacco Company, the slip immediately became brighter, busier and a destination where Richmonders took visitors to show off their city and its unique eateries. It didn’t take long for the good times to extend to Shockoe Bottom and beyond, and a place that seemed as familiar as an

old shoe became a showplace for entertainment and night life . . . and those cool evenings sitting around the fountain in a deserted cobblestoned circle are now just a memory. Now, it’s been years since I’ve visited that site of some of my adolescent indiscretions, but it’s no secret there are more bars and restaurants in that area to satisfy the most sophisticated of tastes. A recent internet search listed the top 30 bars in the area, a far cry from those first three or four establishments that ventured into an unknown part of the city and took a chance that customers would appreci-

ate the history and ambiance of the area. It worked. Like I said, Im not sure where the process began that has resulted in the multitude of unique eateries in the city and its surrounding counties, but I’m convinced some of it began along those aged cobblestones on a strip of Cary Street called Shockoe Slip. And I’ve certainly enjoyed the benefits of living in a city with an endless variety of places to eat, drink and party but never with the ease and sense of belonging that Shockoe Slip offered in those early days of its rejuvenation.

done, over and will never be repeated in the USA. There is not one person alive who was there nor is there one person alive that personally had anything to do with what happened back then. It seems there should be something to change having more of an impact on the future than changing a name on a building in Hanover County Virginia. How about spending the time and money to change slavery in countries where it still exists? Why not do something about the nightly killings in Chicago, Richmond and other cities. I’m not sure if it was me or someone else that once said, the past is like quick sand, if you don’t make an effort to get out you may be there for ever. If you are one of the few (of any race) who feel the Civil War, Confederate generals’ names on buildings, statues, racism, prejudice or just society in general is the reason for your failure to get an education, or get a job or had something to do with you being a criminal you should stay awake next February and pay attention to Black History month. There seems to be quite a few people profiled during the month who, in spite of the Civil War, Confederate generals’ names on buildings, statues,

racism, prejudice and society were able to live the American dream and as difficult as it may have been, succeeded in all types of professions? These are people who refused to use the past as a crutch and instead of blaming others made the sacrifice and effort to get out of the quick sand and make a future for their self and show others it could be done. See how easy it is, the sun shines on anyone with enough sense to get out in it! Here’s a question for our Hanover County School Board members: What would be next on the name changing agenda? Street signs, subdivisions, my relative’s names, your relative’s names and every person or thing with a name associated with Confederate such as Alexander, Anderson, Armistead, Beauegard, Bee, Bragg, Early, Ewell, Forrest, Hill, Hood, Jackson, Johnston, Lee, Longstreet, Mosby, Pickett, Smith and Stuart. I doubt changing the name of Mosby Court would solve anything there. Is it possible the school board and Hanover County Board of Supervisors could spend some time to figure out how to get the school day on a permanent two-hour morning delay and a permanent twohour extended day? This would

be of more importance to me and something that would be beneficial to all of us. I figure if the school systems and other government employees would get on the above schedule we would have 60 to 70% less traffic on our roads making taxpayers’ morning drive to work more enjoyable and the trip home faster giving us an extended happy hour.

Supervisors OK budget Education and public safety get lion’s share of funding By Jim Ridolphi for The Mechanicsville Local HANOVER – The Hanover County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the county’s $463.1 million FY2019 last Wednesday. The adoption closes a process that began in earnest in February, but, in reality, began many months before. “The budget process is not something that begins in January,” said Chickahominy supervisor Angela KellyWiecek. The budget includes a 41 percent share for education spending as well as 14 percent for public safety. The budget also allocates funds for a county-wide salary increase of 2 percent for all employees. The FY2019 budget funds five new Fire/EMS positions and an equal number for the Sheriff ’s Office and increases funds for Human Services.

The board also approved a five-year Capital Improvement Plan that includes funding for the new Atlee Library and a new park in the eastern portion of the county. Ashland supervisor Faye Prichard heralded a budget that provides raises for all county employees, especially those serving in Hanover County Public Schools classrooms. “We run a lean, mean ship and I think we are moving in the right direction being able to do more with technology and bringing ourselves forward, but it’s a slow process,” Prichard said. “I hope the public recognizes that we are taking meaningful first steps forward, but these are not our last steps’ and we continue to be committed to our teachers and the folks who work for us taking care of our most important asset in this county which is our future.” Chair Sean Davis, Henry

District, expressed concern over an ever-increasing local share for education spending, noting the state supplied only a $500,000 increase in funding. County taxpayers picked up the other $4 million in school increases. “When there’s a shortfall from the state or they decide they are not going to fund something that needs to be funded in the priorities of Hanover County and the citizens mandate that funding, then local dollars make it up,” Davis said. Cold Harbor supervisor Scott Wyatt approved a budget that will make a difference in his community, adding 24/7 coverage at two county fire stations, including Black Creek. “I know the volunteers came and requested 24/7 coverage due to problems with weekend staffing, so I really appreciate see BUDGET, pg. 13

was presented with his reaccreditation certificate at the April 11 meeting of the Hanover County Board of Supervisors by Sheriff J.J. “Joe” McLaughlin Jr. of New Kent County, who also serves as a VLEPSC commissioner. Hines accepted the certificate on behalf of the men and women of the Sheriff ’s Office, saying that “without the strong partnerships we have worked so hard to establish within our community, this reaccreditation would not be possible to achieve.”

The Sheriff ’s Office had its on-site assessment on Jan. 29-30 and was found in full compliance with 189 applicable standards. The Sheriff ’s Office first achieved state accreditation in 1998 and is the only Sheriff ’s Office in Virginia to be dually accredited through VLEPSC and the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). Participating in both processes is voluntary. To achieve reaccreditation, see FIFTH, pg. 13

Hanover County has received this prestigious award each fiscal year since 1985 (now 33 consecutive years). The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in governmental accounting and financial reporting and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a govern-

ment and its management. Hanover County’s CAFR was judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the program, including demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the

CAFR. The GFOA is a nonprofit professional association serving nearly 19,000 appointed and elected government finance professionals throughout North America. Information submitted by Tom Harris, Hanover County public information officer.

ago, both online and in print.” “Our primary focus throughout this process was to carefully consider and discuss the various perspectives presented to us in a dispassionate and civil manner and make the best decision possible,” Dibble added. Cold Harbor board representative Norm Sulser endorsed Dibble’s comments and moved to decline a name change, a move seconded by Mechanicsville representative Roger Bourassa. “We have studied this issue patiently for the past eight months during which time we have received much input from the community,” Sulser said. “I move that we decline to change the names and mascots of Lee-Davis High School and Stonewall Jackson Middle School at this time.” A number of speakers addressed the name change issue during a public comment period earlier in the meeting schedule. Most spoke in favor of a name change, many of them Lee-Davis alumni. Even though groups supporting the change did not speak during the public comments, their support for the board’s decision to decline a name change request was evident. When the vote was completed, a round of applause erupted from what appeared to be an evenly divided audience. One speaker of the dozen or so who took a turn at the microphone did favor retaining the

Changing the name isn’t taking from anyone or trying to change our history.” Throughout the debate, a constant thread has been the dedication that both camps hold for their former school, despite differences regarding the names. One parent who supported a name change expressed her thanks for the education her children received at LeeDavis. “I am grateful for the fine education they received, particularly for the outstanding educators they’ve had,” said Amber Peacock, a 20-year county resident. Although the item was placed in the discussion section of the agenda, the board was ready to vote on the matter, a position clearly evident at last month’s workshop session where a lengthy discussion produced a distinct direction in which the board wished to move. At that meeting, board members Marla Coleman, Henry District, and Ola Hawkins, Ashland District, had indicated they would support

changing the names and mascots, but other board members stated they would not support the renamings. “I’m simply asking for inclusion,” Hawkins said. Coleman spoke of the message that could be delivered if the board did consider changing the names. “Should a name change occur, I think that would be the first and most significant step we could take in the community in saying that Hanover County welcomes all children of all races, colors and creeds to its doorstep and we attempt to educate each and every one who comes to us,” Coleman said. The vote came as no surprise to those in opposition, who vowed to continue to request a change in the names. Rachel Levy, a county resident, parent and member of Together Hanover, said the group is still considering her next move, but giving up is not an option. “Hanover County could have chosen to deliberate further or to change the names and mascots now and end their promotion of the Confederate and segregationist cause,” Levy said. “But, tragically, they chose instead to put students and community members through further grief. We will enter the phase of our efforts and continue our work until Hanover County Public Schools does the right thing.” Other groups supporting a name change have indicated they intend to continue their quest for a name change, including the local chapter of the NAACP.

names, citing the cost of such a change in an atmosphere where teachers are often forced to buy their own supplies. “If you start changing the names, what are we going to do about banners? What about the DECA cost, the people who have already spent money on these things,” asked Wanda Burcham, an L-DHS alumnus and mother of three graduates of the school. “We have so many other things that this county could spend that money on,” she added. “It’s going to cost us an astronomical figure to replace the names … We have to stop and think about these things.” Julie Stubblefield is the parent of children who attend both schools in question, and said some who support a name change have been hesitant to come forward. She asked board members if they had spoken with African American students or families to gain their perspective on the issue. Several African American alumni voiced support for a name change and said they did not feel included in the LeeDavis community when they attended the school. Avi Hopkins, a 1994 graduate of L-DHD, addressed a point made by those opposed to a name change that expresses a fear that changing the names will somehow change history. “I hear rumblings of a history lost. There will be no history lost,” Hopkins said. “History is why we are here tonight, and the stories will be told. They are a part of the fabric of this nation.

Candidates tell voters why they should fill council seats By Logan Barry for The Mechanicsville Local ASHLAND – As the May 1 General Election approaches in the Town of Ashland, the three candidates seeking two seats on Ashland Town Council made their case for the voters’ support on Monday, April 9, during a forum at Ashland Town Hall. Seeking the council seats are Terry “Les” Cook, Daniel “Dan” McGraw and current council member John Hodges. Mayor James Foley decided not to run for re-election; his term ends on June 30, marking his second term as mayor. Hodges was appointed to council last year after former Vice Mayor James Murray resigned to attend law school in North Carolina. That seat expires on

June 3; Hodges announced his intentions early to retain the office he holds. The League of Women Voters and Randolph-Macon College joined in sponsoring the forum, with R-MC professor Laura Bell serving as moderator. She asked the candidates which issues they thought were the most important the town would have to deal with over the next five years. Hodges went first. He said the most significant issue is the replacement of the current Ashland Town Hall with a new one. He talked about how the town is “dealing with a substandard town hall … it is more expensive to repair than it is to replace – that’s an issue the council [has] been grappling

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. Ashland’s Henry Clay Woman’s Club of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs once again is partnering with Prevent Child Abuse Virginia and the Virginia Coalition for Child Abuse Prevention to spread the message that everyone can help great childhoods happen in our community. This year’s theme, “Building Brighter Childhoods”, promotes the idea that everyone has a role to play in helping to prevent child abuse and neglect in their community and the Commonwealth. The symbol of this effort is a “Pinwheel” – and these pinwheels will be “Planted” in a Pinwheel Garden on the front lawn of Ashland Town Hall. In 2008, Prevent Child Abuse America introduced the pinwheel as the new national symbol for child abuse prevention through Pinwheels for Prevention®. By its very nature, the pinwheel connotes whimsy and childlike notions. In essence, it has come to serve as the physical embodiment, or reminder, of the great childhoods we want for all children. During April, they will be working in conjunction with other organizations to educate the public about how they are already helping to prevent child abuse, as well as offering some positive ideas about how we all can help children and families thrive.

Masons join in helping Supervisors urge safe boating as ushers at Raceway HENRICO -- Richmond Raceway recently called in its ushers to tell them how its $30 million infield upgrade would affect their usher duties. Ushers are the largest number of track representatives that fans see on race days. They are there to help fans better enjoy the many activities the Raceway has to offer. Masons have played a leading role in recruiting and supervising volunteers to serve as Raceway ushers. Among the Masons participating on Friday through Sunday, April 20-22, are members of Masonic Lodge #344 in Mechanicsville. Richmond Raceway uses many fraternal, church, civic and community volunteers on race days to help their groups raise funds. Masons volunteer to fund their many community services

like blood drives, child ID and speech improvement programs. For example, some off-duty law enforcement officers work traffic on race days. Those who also are Masons urged others to volunteer as ushers. Masons were readily able and willing to meet usher dress code and work requirements. As the Raceway grew, more and more volunteers were needed. Experienced Masonic volunteers easily recruited and supervised new volunteers. During a recent usher orientation meeting, all Masons were asked to stand. About 75 percent of the group was Masons. Race fans will see a lot of their friendly, smiling faces during the upcoming races. They’re there to both help the races go round as well as to have fun and fund many Masonic community service projects.

and small in scale – and the Center of the Universe.” McGraw said the town needs to improve on enticing businesses to move there. “We’re in a new age of how businesses decide where they go, and now they’re looking for places that are already ready for the business – not places that they have to develop or places that they have to wait for zoning.” He used examples of businesses the town would like to see within its corporate limits such as medical centers and restaurants. Another issue McGraw was passionate about dealt with Ashland’s poverty line that “We continue to face.” He talked about how many people residing in Ashland must spend 35 percent or more of their income to live in their house – “and

some people aren’t even living at home.” Cook touched on all sides of the issues that were mentioned previously by the other candidates. He started with pointing out how the two big capital projects coming up are the new town hall and the Carter Park Pool redevelopment. Cook also supports the tax increase in the town manager’s recently proposed budget, but expanded more on how he believed it should be analyzed. He said he thinks they should monitor the budget as best as they can while these projects move forward so the town can determine how to bring the tax back down to its normal levels, as soon as it would be possible to do so. As for the issues the town faces over the next five years, he said they must continue to focus attention to the DC2RVA

high-speed rail proposal. “Even though decisions were made on a 3-2-3 proposal … I think it’s really important we keep monitoring that to make sure no changes get made,” Cook said. Cook also talked about searching for ways to bring in more jobs to Ashland for economically disadvantaged residents and students living in town and the town’s sidewalk program, as well as to look at ways to cover rent costs for economically disadvantaged residents. “I also agree with poverty and housing … we could incentivize our renters in certain ways so that they could accept certain federal and state dollars to help those people,” he said. Those interested in watching the candidate forum can view the video on the town’s website at www.town.ashland. va.us/89/Town-Meetings.

Zona throws pitches, plate punches in win By Dave Lawrence Sports Editor MECHANICSVILLE – Hanover pitcher Nick Zona was feeling pretty good Friday night. The Hawks pitching rotation – Zona included – has been plagued by nagging injuries all season, injuries that limited their time on the mound. But Zona felt good enough to go the distance, albeit in a shortened six-inning game, and felt better afterward as he played a key role in shortening the game with three hits and four RBIs – including the gameending RBI – in Hanover’s 11-1 victory over cross-town rival Atlee Friday night. He said he and his fellow banged-up teammates are feeling better now. “I had, maybe, a little bit of nagging injuries here and there, but I fought through them and played through them. They healed as the season went on,” Zona said. “I know Cam [Grimes] and Jack [Dragum] and [Will] Lopez are battling through stuff, too. As time goes on with the preseason injuries, they came back in … helped themselves out and got healthy quick. “It was a struggle at the beginning of the year, but we’re all healthy now. We’re good to go. It’s full-blast Hawks’ time right now.” The Raiders managed only

RICHMOND – No. 1 Atlee and No. 4 St. Christopher’s had fought evenly through the first 24 minutes on a sun-soaked Saturday afternoon, but in the third quarter, the Saints asserted themselves and dictated the pace of play. Two third-period Atlee goals were disallowed for crease violations, and St. Christopher’s, with newfound momentum after each call, scored shortly after each instance. The halftime score was 6-6, but the third quarter swung decidedly in the Saints’ favor, leading to a 13-9 home victory. “I think we were able to play more offense,” St. Christopher’s coach John Burke said of the second half. “That sounds simple, but we won a couple see SAINTS, pg. 32 


Raiders, C-feds win close softball contests By Dave Lawrence Sports Editor McKenzie Terrell Richmond Times-Dispatch MECHANICSVILLE – Hanover County’s four softball teams have repeatedly demonstrated themselves to be among the best in their respective regions as well as the state. Cross-county contests are often exciting, close-fought affairs. Friday night was a case in point, as a mere three points – total – separated the victors from the losers. Atlee edged host Hanover 2-0, and LeeDavis just avoided extra innings with a 4-3 walk-off victory over visiting Patrick Henry. Atlee 2, Hanover 0 The game began as a pitcher’s duel as neither Atlee nor Hanover could get a run across in the first three innings of their game Friday. Raider pitcher Rachel Davis went the distance, yielding just three hits while striking out nine. While she dominated the Hawks, she feels she has room to improve as a pitcher. “It’s not exactly where I want it to be,” she said of her pitching. “But I know as the season progresses that it’ll get better and better.” While Davis was in the pitching rotation last year, she felt a bit daunted having to fill the shoes of Atlee ace Peyton St. George, who graduated last year after winning three state championships as a Raider. “To watch her win all those state championships, I knew I had some big shoes to fill,” Davis said. “I tried to take the advice that she was always giving me and what I saw in her, use it and try to play the game.” One of the key reminders St. George gave her: softball is a game.

Nick Liberante for The Local

Lee-Davis pitcher Savanah Henley allowed just six hits Friday as the Confederates beat visiting Patrick Henry 4-3 on a walk-off single by Katie Bareford in the seventh inning.

Dave Lawrence/The Local

Atlee’s Rachel Davis launches a fly ball to center field for a single and an RBI in the Raiders’ 2-0 victory over host Hanover Friday.

That being said, she prefers to win, and she helped herself with an RBI single to center field that scored Kelly Ayer in the fifth inning. Davis and Ayer accounted for four of Atlee’s five hits, each going 2-for-3 on the night. Atlee got its first run in the fourth inning. Emily Friel opened the Raider fourth with a double to center field. Kara Hammock laid down a sacrifice bunt, reaching on an error and allowing courtesy runner Rachel Green – running for Friel – to reach third. Green scored on a pickoff attempt that

went awry. The loss marred a strong pitching effort by Hanover starter Ellen Palya, who struck out eight over five innings. One of the Hawks biggest mistakes was a failure to adjust to the umpire’s strike zone. “We watched a lot of the same pitch go by and we didn’t adapt to what was being called,” said Hanover head softball coach Rebecca Parramore. “There’s not really much you can do when you’re not adapting to what the umpire is doing.”

Lee-Davis 4, Patrick Henry 3 The Confederates needed a walk-off single by Katie Bareford to avoid extra innings against the Patriots. “It was a battle. [The Patriots] have a very good, young, athletic team,” LeeDavis head softball coach Jackie Davis said of the Patriots. Patrick Henry turned to freshman Riley Dull for the start on the mound, and, while she gave up four runs in a complete-game effort, only two of those runs were earned. Dull and her Lee-Davis counterpart,

Savanah Henley (five strikeouts), kept the game scoreless until the fourth inning. When the scoring started, it was more of a slow drip than a drizzle. Both teams scored in the fourth inning, but the Confederates took a 3-1 lead with two runs in the bottom of the fifth. Lauren Taylor reached on an error and scored one out later on a double by Logan Hawker. After another out, courtesy runner Sidney Gentry – in for Hawker – scored on another Patriot error. The Patriots responded in the top of sixth when Charlotte

Mitchell singled in Caroline Quigley with two outs. They added another run with two outs in the top of the seventh to tie the game on Dull’s single that scored courtesy runner Lindsey Cooper, who was running for Patrick Henry catcher Saxon Radcliffe. Davis liked her team’s chances when they came to the plate for the bottom of the seventh inning. “We had the top of our order up,” she said. “I felt like we had a good shot at it and we were able to get the go-ahead run.” Taylor opened the Lee-Davis seventh with a single. Two outs later, the Patriots intentionally walked Jesse Gentry – who already had two hits, including a double. That brought up Bareford, who rapped a single down the left-field line to end the game. Lee-Davis 14, Mills Godwin 2 MECHANICSVILLE – LeeDavis defeated Mills Godwin 14-2 on Wednesday, scoring 9 runs in the bottom of the sixth inning. Lee-Davis’ McKenna Mehlbrech effectively ended the game with a walk-off grand slam Wednesday night.

Young Hawks shut out rebuilding Raiders By Dave Lawrence Sports Editor MECHANICSVILLE – It took the Hanover’s girls soccer team a while before it established its dominance over visiting Atlee, but once it got its second goal in the second half, the Hawks could focus on possession and ultimately victory in a 3-0 shutout of the Raiders. Forwards Sarah LePeter and Lauren Didlake and midfielder Maggie Sobel all scored for the Hawks. “I have good forwards, good midfielders, a great defense and a young goalie,” Hanover head girls soccer coach Manny Tavares said of his team. “My hat’s off to my attacking mid, Maggie Sobel; my forward Lauren Didlake – my workhorse – and Rachel Andrzejewski up front. The three of them were just incredible attacking.” But he had good things to say about his back line, too. “I’d like to point both defenders out: Summer Hansen and Olivia Adams,” Tavares said. “They’re so solid, I trust them with my life.” Tavares said the Hawks weren’t daunted, however, by facing the long-dominant Raiders. “To beat a quality team like Atlee is truly a big honor,” he said. “They’ve been a dominant force for years, putting away Hanover teams from Lee-Davis to us and Patrick Henry.” The Raiders graduated a large number of key seniors. Atlee head coach Bruce Lovelace said his young team is improving every week. “We’re progressing,” Lovelace said. “We just ask that they improve every match. That’s the important thing.” Tavares, a long-time assistant coach for Hanover’s boys team, is enjoying working as the

Hawk girls’ head coach. “They’re a great group of girls. They’re fantastic,” Tavares said. “I really couldn’t ask for a better group of people. They give me everything they have. They don’t want to disappoint. Honestly, you can’t come into a better situation than what I’ve come into. … They don’t give up. They push hard. They train hard. And they just trust in their coach. They believe in me and I believe in them.” Tavares is bullish on his team overall. “I think it’s our time now as far as the girls go,” he said. “I’ve got a lot of young girls on the team. I’m not graduating many, so I look forward to the future.” Patrick Henry 1, Lee-Davis 1 MECHANICSVILLE – Despite two overtimes, neither the Patriots nor the host Confederates could manage an advantage in a 1-1 tie. The keepers shined in the knotted contest. Victoria Robinson had 11 saves for Patrick Henry, while Lee-Davis keeper Ashlyn Doane had nine for the Confederates. Rian Pecci-Young scored the Patriots lone goal, while Lauren Schenack scored for Lee-Davis. Dave Lawrence can be reached at dlawrence@mechlocal.com.

The Confederates (3-0) held the Eagles at zero for the first five innings. Pitcher Savanah Henley threw all six innings for Lee-Davis, earning her third win for the season. For Lee-Davis, Jesse Gentry hit solo home runs in the fourth and fifth innings.

By Jonathan Howard For the Mechanicsville Local MECHANICSVILLE – Despite holding a 5-2 lead going into the halftime break of Thursday night’s girls lacrosse contest between Patrick Henry and Lee-Davis, Patriots junior Ryann Peebles said her team was frustrated with its performance. “Going into that halftime we took deep breaths and started motivating each other,” she said. Whatever was said worked wonders. Patrick Henry (5-1) doubled its goal production in just seven minutes of secondhalf action and went on to defeat homestanding Lee-Davis 13-6 in a battle of Hanover County rivals. Peebles scored five goals in the victory, including four in the game-changing second half. “We started motivating each other saying good ball or good check,” she said. “Little things are the things that count, so celebrating those little things leads to goals.” The Patriots dominated the draw to gain possession early and often in the second half, and used it to their advantage to score on Harley Stegner, who entered the game as the keeper for Lee-Davis (2-3) in the second half. Emily Flinn started the second-half scoring just 42 seconds into play with a goal from the top of the arc following a penalty. Peebles added to the lead shortly thereafter, as the junior received a pass after the draw, and streaked straight down the field to score. “One of the most important things is taking control of the draw ... learning where it’s going, where it’s going to be positioned and placing it game is in the middle of the exactly where it needs to go,” circle.

faceoffs, and we were able to keep them playing defense. On a hot day like this, the team that ended up playing defense longer was going to suffer a little bit.” St. Christopher’s Will Tazewell scored to open the third quarter, and Atlee’s answer came a few minutes later, but it was overturned because of

the crease infraction. Instead of a 7-7 tie, it remained 7-6, and Luke Valentine made it 8-6 shortly after. Porter Lewis scored for the Saints with 3 minutes left, and Atlee’s second goal of the quarter was waved off once more. Hartley Jordan scored with 33 seconds left to make it 10-6 in favor of St. Christopher’s by the end of the quarter. Atlee coach Fielding Crawford was animated in his displeasure of both goals being

overturned, but he recognized St. Christopher’s (5-4) presented a beneficial challenge for his team. “You never like to lose, but we lost to a classy team of quality players,” Crawford said. “We’re going to try to get better from that, build on that. Hopefully, we get a positive out of this negative.” In the fourth quarter, Valentine scored once, and Tazewell scored twice more to put the game out of reach. In

the final 2:42, Atlee notched its final three goals, showcasing its offensive prowess that had led to a competitive first half. The Raiders led early thanks to two goals from Andrew Cook and one from Kevin Dunne. Dunne’s main contribution, however, was winning 17 of 25 faceoffs. “It’s such an important position now, to control tempo and control momentum, and Kevin’s a great player,” Burke said.

Burke said his team aimed to limit Dunne’s effectiveness, along with that of Cook and Mason Walczak. “Those kids can shoot really well,” Burke said. “Andrew Cook’s a great athlete. He’s one of the best kids we’ll see on any team. We play some pretty elevated teams on our schedule, but he’s fantastic. If you let him get time and room, he’s going to bury them.” Cook finished with three goals, and Walczak had two.

Drew Miller also scored three times for the Raiders (5-1). But once the Saints’ defense settled down in front of goalie Michael Chapman, the offense followed suit and found its openings. Tazewell led with four goals, and Valentine tallied three. Jordan and Brooks Council recorded two each, helping the Saints avenge a 9-8 loss to the Raiders last season.

usually at second base – when not on the mound, likes to keep his defense involved in the game. “I love getting my guys active, getting ground balls, fly outs – to pay baseball out there,” he said. “That’s what I live and strive for.” Zona led the Hawks with his 3-for-3 performance at the plate. His first at-bat resulted in a successful sacrifice bunt. The second time he stepped up to the plate, he knocked in a pair of runs with a single up the middle to bring home Caleb Gorman and Lopez and put the Hawks up 6-1. The third time, he outran a throw to first, driving in Dragum for another run and a 9-1 Hanover lead. The last time, he singled with a line drive to right field to drive in Lopez and end the game. Lopez went 2-for-3 for the Hawks with three runs and an RBI, and Dragum scored two runs with two RBI.

Lee-Davis 5, Patrick Henry 4 MECHANICSVILLE – The Confederates and Patriots found themselves in one of their traditional scraps Friday night, but host Lee-Davis, by virtue of a two-run fourth inning, eked out the runs it needed for a win over its oldest county rival. The Confederates got the two runs in a burst after their second out. Jack Rice hit a solo home run over the right-field wall. Carter Rice doubled to left field, then Zach Lass doubled to right field to drive in Trice to give Lee-Davis a 5-3 lead. But the Patriots weren’t about to give up. They scored an additional run in the sixth. Terrance Oxendine reached on an error and advanced to second on the play. He advanced to third on a single by Chase Mills, then scored on a sacrifice fly by Hunter Hart. But Patrick Henry could not get an additional run to extend the game. “Both teams battled. We kind of have the same mentality on both sides – we’re going to battle to the end,” said Lee-Davis head baseball coach

Tyler Johnson. “They’re very well coached. Their guys throw strikes. They make plays. They put the bat on the ball. They’re very similar to us.” Both teams finished with eight hits. The difference was that the Confederate hits were more timely. “We got a few more hits, a few more baserunners and opportunities at the right times,” Johnson said. “But it was a great game.” Lee-Davis got another strong start from freshman Brett Allen, who struck out five in 5-1/3 innings of work. And he had plenty of offensive backup: Rice scored another run in addition to his homer; Trice had two hits, including a double, with two runs scored; and Lass went 2-for-3 with two doubles and two RBI total. Patrick Henry was led by Scott Gilman with a 2-for-3 performance that included a double, and Hart, who finished with two RBI. Lee-Davis 11, King William 1 MECHANICSVILLE

The Confederates took advantage of an uncharacteristically shaky Cavalier defense to win in an 11-1 romp at Lee-Davis Tuesday. King William committed six errors allowing five unearned runs. “We gave them plenty of outs, and when you give a good team outs, they’re going to make you hurt,” said Cavalier head coach Phil Leid. “We had been very solid up to this point. We’re going back to work. We’ll iron it out for sure.” That did not mean Lee– Davis wasn’t hitting: The

Confederates mustered 13 hits overall. “We’ve been playing well. We’ve been hitting the ball well. We’ve been throwing strikes – which is a big thing.

CANCER • Jun 22/Jul 22 You may find yourself in a position where you can take on a leadership role, Cancer. Do not hesitate to jump onboard because this can be just what’s needed for your career.

LIBRA • Sept 23/Oct 23 Some sort of breakthrough in your life is soon to become a reality, Libra. It may be a financial windfall or a new job opportunity. Keep your eyes open to any and all possibilities.

CAPRICORN • Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, it is easy to get carried away with an idea. Just do not mistake obsession for focus. You need to pace yourself if you are going to be effective.

LEO • Jul 23/Aug 23 Responsibilities will soon be easier to handle, Leo. Not because the tasks are less difficult, but because you have more people on your side helping you out.

AQUARIUS • Jan 21/Feb 18 You may need to postpone something you had hoped to finish this week, Aquarius. As long as it does not get pushed too far onto the back burner you should be fine.

GEMINI • May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, you may be easily swayed this week by someone who is smooth-talking. Figure out if this person can be believed or not, but give them a chance.

VIRGO • Aug 24/Sept 22 Planning a vacation can be almost as fun as traveling, Virgo. When someone asks for your help drawing up a travel itinerary, put all of your effort into the task.

SAGITTARIUS • Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, you are on the move this week, but it is best to have a plan and not leave things to chance. Look ahead to all the possible scenarios that have the potential to trip you up.

PISCES • Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, a setback of some kind may occur this week. Don’t get too worried just yet. Adversity can be a learning experience.

From the managing editor

Help Atlee robotics team get to big event By Melody Kinser Managing Editor Impressive! That was the first word that popped into my head as I listened to the three students from Atlee High School talk about the upcoming world competition for robotics. A junior and two seniors -- Sabrina Chin, Tyler Smith and Maria Wass -- came by the office on Thursday, April 5, to talk about their successes as they set their sights on the big event in Detroit, Michigan, on Wednesday, April 25. Now here’s where you can help: The team needs about $13,000 to go to the Motor City. A GoFundMe page has been set up to assist with fundraising efforts. The address to the tax-deductible site is GoFundMe.com/circuitree1599.

You also can send cash or checks to Atlee High School at 9414 Atlee Station Rd., Mechanicsville VA 23116. This is so exciting for Atlee High and Hanover County Public Schools. The students’ entry is named Splinter and has advanced them to the world competition. As someone who wasn’t especially interested in science (despite having a sister who had a Ph.D. in chemistry), it was amazing to listen to Sabrina, Tyler and Maria. Their enthusiasm was contagious -- so much so that I gave them a donation for their cause. Talk about getting caught up in an interview. The three are intelligent, dedicated and personable. Their team totals 61, with nine making the trip to Detroit. So, let’s talk numbers. Building Splinter cost

about $3,000; registration for the competitions can range from $4,000 to $5,000. Any amount you donate will help send Circuitree to Detroit. Circuitree officially became a robotics club at Atlee in 2005. Another tax-deductible way to contribute is through the Atlee High School Robotics Boosters Club. It is a 501(c)(3) organization. I know -- you read this last week in a front page article, but the need is great and time is of the essence to raise the needed funding. This is a major educational opportunity for some Hanover County students. We pride ourselves on the quality of education provided. Let’s ensure Circuitree gets to Detroit. Please -- open your wallet or checkbook and donate today.

Restaurant boom in the metro area started quietly By Jim Ridolphi Contributing Columnist

I recently read that Richmond has one of the most robust restaurant scenes in the entire nation featuring a variety of dining and entertainment choices, fine locally brewed beers and unique culinary experiences in all corners of the city. I’m not sure when the eatery explosion began, but I do recall days past

when picking a restaurant was more limited than the potpourri of experiences offered today. The evolution of the abundant restaurant base that currently serves the metro area was more of a transformation than a reformation. A major part of that awakening occurred when a historic area of Richmond called Shockoe Slip became a gathering spot for recently come of age baby boomers looking to fully take

advantage of recently passed liquor by the drink laws. Even with the small conglomerate of local restaurants in the mid to later 1970s, the Slip was gentle and quiet compared to the hustle and bustle that marks the night on Cary Street on any given night today. Back then, the two blocks that comprised the slip were still a combination of abandoned buildings and crumbling tobacco warehouses, with

intermittent renovated spaces mostly occupied by restaurants. Eateries like Galligo’s, The Warehouse and Sam Millier’s dotted the dimly lit street, and getting to each of them was easy with only the passing of a lone car on Cary Street separating the trek. I’m not sure what attracted me or my friends to the area, but I can recall many a late night spent in an exposed see BOOM, pg. 8

Resident: Keeping school names is a gutless position The fact that the Hanover County School Board chose to keep the existing names of Lee-Davis High School and Stonewall Jackson Middle School strikes me as a particularly gutless position. Those people are there to lead, and, rather than do the right thing, they opted to kick a festering wound down the road for someone else to deal with. This wound that divides will not somehow disappear with time by ignoring it. The truly gutless part of all this is their hiding behind the façade of “majority opinion.” I would hazard a wild guess that an opinion poll taken in Hanover County in the 17th or 18th centuries would have determined that slavery was a fine institution. It wasn’t. The same type poll in the early to mid-20th Century would have determined that segregation, separate but equal, was equally fine. It wasn’t. In this day we have people believing that names that divide somehow represent a proud past. Get real. Try looking at the situation from a minority viewpoint. If you choose to believe the blather that the Civil War was not about slavery, be my guest. That view ranks right alongside the tooth fairy. Even worse than the war itself was its aftermath, a most shameful and dark period in our societal development. After the withdrawal of federal troops from the South, white militias ran rampant throughout the region; thousands of blacks were murdered, homes and churches burnt, women raped, all with the intent of intimidating blacks and keeping them from voting (along with poll taxes and literacy tests). The flip side of black subjugation was extolling white supremacy. Hence came the revisionist interpretation of “The Lost Cause,” the South didn’t really lose the war, it was just see LETTERS, pg. 8

All four facilities are under the personal direction of Charles D. Morehead, President. In a time of need, you can turn to Bennett Funeral Home with trust and confidence. It serves families of all faiths with personal service – before, during and after. There is a long tradition of professionalism and caring.

overwhelmed by an economically and numerically superior North. And, to provide everyday reminders of white supremacy, statues were erected of, and roads, buildings and schools were named after, the civic and military leaders of “The Lost Cause.” How is it that we suppose that our black populace finds pride of heritage in this degrading situation? So, here we have our Hanover County School Board, having had the chance to begin to heal the wound that divides, instead thumbing their collective noses at our American minority. Shame!

In reference to “Rename schools tied to Confederates”: Slavery in the U.S. happened over 100 years ago and it is

covered treasure in those funfilled evenings on those two blocks of Cary Street. I suppose we were naive in not realizing this treasure would soon be discovered by a city, a state and a region. When months later, the doors swung open at The Tobacco Company, the slip immediately became brighter, busier and a destination where Richmonders took visitors to show off their city and its unique eateries. It didn’t take long for the good times to extend to Shockoe Bottom and beyond, and a place that seemed as familiar as an

old shoe became a showplace for entertainment and night life . . . and those cool evenings sitting around the fountain in a deserted cobblestoned circle are now just a memory. Now, it’s been years since I’ve visited that site of some of my adolescent indiscretions, but it’s no secret there are more bars and restaurants in that area to satisfy the most sophisticated of tastes. A recent internet search listed the top 30 bars in the area, a far cry from those first three or four establishments that ventured into an unknown part of the city and took a chance that customers would appreci-

ate the history and ambiance of the area. It worked. Like I said, Im not sure where the process began that has resulted in the multitude of unique eateries in the city and its surrounding counties, but I’m convinced some of it began along those aged cobblestones on a strip of Cary Street called Shockoe Slip. And I’ve certainly enjoyed the benefits of living in a city with an endless variety of places to eat, drink and party but never with the ease and sense of belonging that Shockoe Slip offered in those early days of its rejuvenation.

done, over and will never be repeated in the USA. There is not one person alive who was there nor is there one person alive that personally had anything to do with what happened back then. It seems there should be something to change having more of an impact on the future than changing a name on a building in Hanover County Virginia. How about spending the time and money to change slavery in countries where it still exists? Why not do something about the nightly killings in Chicago, Richmond and other cities. I’m not sure if it was me or someone else that once said, the past is like quick sand, if you don’t make an effort to get out you may be there for ever. If you are one of the few (of any race) who feel the Civil War, Confederate generals’ names on buildings, statues, racism, prejudice or just society in general is the reason for your failure to get an education, or get a job or had something to do with you being a criminal you should stay awake next February and pay attention to Black History month. There seems to be quite a few people profiled during the month who, in spite of the Civil War, Confederate generals’ names on buildings, statues,

racism, prejudice and society were able to live the American dream and as difficult as it may have been, succeeded in all types of professions? These are people who refused to use the past as a crutch and instead of blaming others made the sacrifice and effort to get out of the quick sand and make a future for their self and show others it could be done. See how easy it is, the sun shines on anyone with enough sense to get out in it! Here’s a question for our Hanover County School Board members: What would be next on the name changing agenda? Street signs, subdivisions, my relative’s names, your relative’s names and every person or thing with a name associated with Confederate such as Alexander, Anderson, Armistead, Beauegard, Bee, Bragg, Early, Ewell, Forrest, Hill, Hood, Jackson, Johnston, Lee, Longstreet, Mosby, Pickett, Smith and Stuart. I doubt changing the name of Mosby Court would solve anything there. Is it possible the school board and Hanover County Board of Supervisors could spend some time to figure out how to get the school day on a permanent two-hour morning delay and a permanent twohour extended day? This would

be of more importance to me and something that would be beneficial to all of us. I figure if the school systems and other government employees would get on the above schedule we would have 60 to 70% less traffic on our roads making taxpayers’ morning drive to work more enjoyable and the trip home faster giving us an extended happy hour.

Supervisors OK budget Education and public safety get lion’s share of funding By Jim Ridolphi for The Mechanicsville Local HANOVER – The Hanover County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the county’s $463.1 million FY2019 last Wednesday. The adoption closes a process that began in earnest in February, but, in reality, began many months before. “The budget process is not something that begins in January,” said Chickahominy supervisor Angela KellyWiecek. The budget includes a 41 percent share for education spending as well as 14 percent for public safety. The budget also allocates funds for a county-wide salary increase of 2 percent for all employees. The FY2019 budget funds five new Fire/EMS positions and an equal number for the Sheriff ’s Office and increases funds for Human Services.

The board also approved a five-year Capital Improvement Plan that includes funding for the new Atlee Library and a new park in the eastern portion of the county. Ashland supervisor Faye Prichard heralded a budget that provides raises for all county employees, especially those serving in Hanover County Public Schools classrooms. “We run a lean, mean ship and I think we are moving in the right direction being able to do more with technology and bringing ourselves forward, but it’s a slow process,” Prichard said. “I hope the public recognizes that we are taking meaningful first steps forward, but these are not our last steps’ and we continue to be committed to our teachers and the folks who work for us taking care of our most important asset in this county which is our future.” Chair Sean Davis, Henry

District, expressed concern over an ever-increasing local share for education spending, noting the state supplied only a $500,000 increase in funding. County taxpayers picked up the other $4 million in school increases. “When there’s a shortfall from the state or they decide they are not going to fund something that needs to be funded in the priorities of Hanover County and the citizens mandate that funding, then local dollars make it up,” Davis said. Cold Harbor supervisor Scott Wyatt approved a budget that will make a difference in his community, adding 24/7 coverage at two county fire stations, including Black Creek. “I know the volunteers came and requested 24/7 coverage due to problems with weekend staffing, so I really appreciate see BUDGET, pg. 13

was presented with his reaccreditation certificate at the April 11 meeting of the Hanover County Board of Supervisors by Sheriff J.J. “Joe” McLaughlin Jr. of New Kent County, who also serves as a VLEPSC commissioner. Hines accepted the certificate on behalf of the men and women of the Sheriff ’s Office, saying that “without the strong partnerships we have worked so hard to establish within our community, this reaccreditation would not be possible to achieve.”

The Sheriff ’s Office had its on-site assessment on Jan. 29-30 and was found in full compliance with 189 applicable standards. The Sheriff ’s Office first achieved state accreditation in 1998 and is the only Sheriff ’s Office in Virginia to be dually accredited through VLEPSC and the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). Participating in both processes is voluntary. To achieve reaccreditation, see FIFTH, pg. 13

ago, both online and in print.” “Our primary focus throughout this process was to carefully consider and discuss the various perspectives presented to us in a dispassionate and civil manner and make the best decision possible,” Dibble added. Cold Harbor board representative Norm Sulser endorsed Dibble’s comments and moved to decline a name change, a move seconded by Mechanicsville representative Roger Bourassa. “We have studied this issue patiently for the past eight months during which time we have received much input from the community,” Sulser said. “I move that we decline to change the names and mascots of Lee-Davis High School and Stonewall Jackson Middle School at this time.” A number of speakers addressed the name change issue during a public comment period earlier in the meeting schedule. Most spoke in favor of a name change, many of them Lee-Davis alumni. Even though groups supporting the change did not speak during the public comments, their support for the board’s decision to decline a name change request was evident. When the vote was completed, a round of applause erupted from what appeared to be an evenly divided audience. One speaker of the dozen or so who took a turn at the microphone did favor retaining the

Changing the name isn’t taking from anyone or trying to change our history.” Throughout the debate, a constant thread has been the dedication that both camps hold for their former school, despite differences regarding the names. One parent who supported a name change expressed her thanks for the education her children received at LeeDavis. “I am grateful for the fine education they received, particularly for the outstanding educators they’ve had,” said Amber Peacock, a 20-year county resident. Although the item was placed in the discussion section of the agenda, the board was ready to vote on the matter, a position clearly evident at last month’s workshop session where a lengthy discussion produced a distinct direction in which the board wished to move. At that meeting, board members Marla Coleman, Henry District, and Ola Hawkins, Ashland District, had indicated they would support

changing the names and mascots, but other board members stated they would not support the renamings. “I’m simply asking for inclusion,” Hawkins said. Coleman spoke of the message that could be delivered if the board did consider changing the names. “Should a name change occur, I think that would be the first and most significant step we could take in the community in saying that Hanover County welcomes all children of all races, colors and creeds to its doorstep and we attempt to educate each and every one who comes to us,” Coleman said. The vote came as no surprise to those in opposition, who vowed to continue to request a change in the names. Rachel Levy, a county resident, parent and member of Together Hanover, said the group is still considering her next move, but giving up is not an option. “Hanover County could have chosen to deliberate further or to change the names and mascots now and end their promotion of the Confederate and segregationist cause,” Levy said. “But, tragically, they chose instead to put students and community members through further grief. We will enter the phase of our efforts and continue our work until Hanover County Public Schools does the right thing.” Other groups supporting a name change have indicated they intend to continue their quest for a name change, including the local chapter of the NAACP.

names, citing the cost of such a change in an atmosphere where teachers are often forced to buy their own supplies. “If you start changing the names, what are we going to do about banners? What about the DECA cost, the people who have already spent money on these things,” asked Wanda Burcham, an L-DHS alumnus and mother of three graduates of the school. “We have so many other things that this county could spend that money on,” she added. “It’s going to cost us an astronomical figure to replace the names … We have to stop and think about these things.” Julie Stubblefield is the parent of children who attend both schools in question, and said some who support a name change have been hesitant to come forward. She asked board members if they had spoken with African American students or families to gain their perspective on the issue. Several African American alumni voiced support for a name change and said they did not feel included in the LeeDavis community when they attended the school. Avi Hopkins, a 1994 graduate of L-DHD, addressed a point made by those opposed to a name change that expresses a fear that changing the names will somehow change history. “I hear rumblings of a history lost. There will be no history lost,” Hopkins said. “History is why we are here tonight, and the stories will be told. They are a part of the fabric of this nation. They are the wounds to which we owe the scars of

Candidates tell voters why they should fill council seats By Logan Barry for The Mechanicsville Local ASHLAND – As the May 1 General Election approaches in the Town of Ashland, the three candidates seeking two seats on Ashland Town Council made their case for the voters’ support on Monday, April 9, during a forum at Ashland Town Hall. Seeking the council seats are Terry “Les” Cook, Daniel “Dan” McGraw and current council member John Hodges. Mayor James Foley decided not to run for re-election; his term ends on June 30, marking his second term as mayor. Hodges was appointed to council last year after former Vice Mayor James Murray resigned to attend law school in North Carolina. That seat expires on

June 3; Hodges announced his intentions early to retain the office he holds. The League of Women Voters and Randolph-Macon College joined in sponsoring the forum, with R-MC professor Laura Bell serving as moderator. She asked the candidates which issues they thought were the most important the town would have to deal with over the next five years. Hodges went first. He said the most significant issue is the replacement of the current Ashland Town Hall with a new one. He talked about how the town is “dealing with a substandard town hall … it is more expensive to repair than it is to replace – that’s an issue the council [has] been grappling

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. Ashland’s Henry Clay Woman’s Club of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs once again is partnering with Prevent Child Abuse Virginia and the Virginia Coalition for Child Abuse Prevention to spread the message that everyone can help great childhoods happen in our community. This year’s theme, “Building Brighter Childhoods”, promotes the idea that everyone has a role to play in helping to prevent child abuse and neglect in their community and the Commonwealth. The symbol of this effort is a “Pinwheel” – and these pinwheels will be “Planted” in a Pinwheel Garden on the front lawn of Ashland Town Hall. In 2008, Prevent Child Abuse America introduced the pinwheel as the new national symbol for child abuse prevention through Pinwheels for Prevention®. By its very nature, the pinwheel connotes whimsy and childlike notions. In essence, it has come to serve as the physical embodiment, or reminder, of the great childhoods we want for all children. During April, they will be working in conjunction with other organizations to educate the public about how they are already helping to prevent child abuse, as well as offering some positive ideas about how we all can help children and families thrive.

Masons join in helping Supervisors urge safe boating as ushers at Raceway HENRICO -- Richmond Raceway recently called in its ushers to tell them how its $30 million infield upgrade would affect their usher duties. Ushers are the largest number of track representatives that fans see on race days. They are there to help fans better enjoy the many activities the Raceway has to offer. Masons have played a leading role in recruiting and supervising volunteers to serve as Raceway ushers. Among the Masons participating on Friday through Sunday, April 20-22, are members of Masonic Lodge #344 in Mechanicsville. Richmond Raceway uses many fraternal, church, civic and community volunteers on race days to help their groups raise funds. Masons volunteer to fund their many community services

like blood drives, child ID and speech improvement programs. For example, some off-duty law enforcement officers work traffic on race days. Those who also are Masons urged others to volunteer as ushers. Masons were readily able and willing to meet usher dress code and work requirements. As the Raceway grew, more and more volunteers were needed. Experienced Masonic volunteers easily recruited and supervised new volunteers. During a recent usher orientation meeting, all Masons were asked to stand. About 75 percent of the group was Masons. Race fans will see a lot of their friendly, smiling faces during the upcoming races. They’re there to both help the races go round as well as to have fun and fund many Masonic community service projects.

and small in scale – and the Center of the Universe.” McGraw said the town needs to improve on enticing businesses to move there. “We’re in a new age of how businesses decide where they go, and now they’re looking for places that are already ready for the business – not places that they have to develop or places that they have to wait for zoning.” He used examples of businesses the town would like to see within its corporate limits such as medical centers and restaurants. Another issue McGraw was passionate about dealt with Ashland’s poverty line that “We continue to face.” He talked about how many people residing in Ashland must spend 35 percent or more of their income to live in their house – “and

some people aren’t even living at home.” Cook touched on all sides of the issues that were mentioned previously by the other candidates. He started with pointing out how the two big capital projects coming up are the new town hall and the Carter Park Pool redevelopment. Cook also supports the tax increase in the town manager’s recently proposed budget, but expanded more on how he believed it should be analyzed. He said he thinks they should monitor the budget as best as they can while these projects move forward so the town can determine how to bring the tax back down to its normal levels, as soon as it would be possible to do so. As for the issues the town faces over the next five years, he said they must continue to focus attention to the DC2RVA

high-speed rail proposal. “Even though decisions were made on a 3-2-3 proposal … I think it’s really important we keep monitoring that to make sure no changes get made,” Cook said. Cook also talked about searching for ways to bring in more jobs to Ashland for economically disadvantaged residents and students living in town and the town’s sidewalk program, as well as to look at ways to cover rent costs for economically disadvantaged residents. “I also agree with poverty and housing … we could incentivize our renters in certain ways so that they could accept certain federal and state dollars to help those people,” he said. Those interested in watching the candidate forum can view the video on the town’s website at www.town.ashland. va.us/89/Town-Meetings.
