Solar generating plant application put on hold HANOVER -- The Hanover County Board of Supervisors deferred action on a Conditional Use Permit application that would have paved the way for the construction of a 143-acre solar generating project located on River Road just off Mechanicsville Turnpike (U.S. 360). After a motion by Sean Davis, Henry District representative, to deny the application -- that was rejected by a 4-3 vote -- the board found

application to rule on a CUP request. The original application was filed in September 2018, and Rives explained that in a case where no action was taken, the request would appear on ensuing agendas until definitive action occurred. Davis initially refused to request a delay, noting the deferral would not affect his decision to deny the application, but finally moved for a deferral until May 22. One Energy has fostered similar projects that produce 28 megawatts of power in the MidAtlantic region, as well as numerous locations across the United States. “The applicant will lease the property. It will own the facility and sell electricity to Dominion Energy,” David Maloney, county planning director, said.

Heart and kidney transplant can’t keep ‘Mr. D’ from PGES By Holly Prestidge Richmond Times-Dispatch ECHANICSVILLE -- In the few minutes before the celebratory festivities started, while the lobby of Hanover County’s Pole Green Elementary School was relatively quiet, Tyrees Dandridge leaned toward the group of boys and girls standing before him and said softly, “I’ve missed y’all -- you know that, right?” This school community -which knows him best as Mr. D -- missed him, too. Dandridge returned to his custodial duties at Pole Green bright and early this morning after nearly five months’ recovery time for a heart and kidney transplant from last October.

Please call our office today. We look forward to meeting your dental health needs.

To the cheers of students, teachers, staff and family members, as well as Alexander, the Pole Green gator mascot, Dandridge and his entourage did a victory lap around the school, giving hi-fives and hugs. On the walls throughout hung 600 painted hearts, one from every student to welcome him back. Dandridge, 59, never stopped smiling. He pulled out his cell phone, which tracks his steps, and proudly noted that he already had more than 3,300 steps for the day -- the result of showing up at school at 6:15 a.m., just like he’s done for the better part of 19 years. He’s been at Pole Green since it opened in 2000, though his career with Hanover County Public Schools goes back further.

But don’t mention to Dandridge that he’s lucky, or he’ll politely but firmly correct you. Luck had nothing to do with doctors finding a single soul on this earth that not only matched Dandridge’s blood type, but also had the right physical stature and could offer both a heart and a kidney. “I don’t believe in luck,” he said. “I believe in blessings -- this had to be God.” ***** In his Ruther Glen home earlier this month, his toddler granddaughter perched contently on his lap, Dandridge recalled that over the last five to six years, his health had worsened. Three years ago, doctors confirmed that his kidneys were failing and he started see TRANSPLANT, pg. 4

heart and kidney doctors in 2016, his heart function was 10 to 15 percent. He was put on the transplant list. For more than two years, as he waited for that call that a donor had been found, Dandridge not only went through dialysis, he had to carry with him an IV drip bag that sent medicine to his heart. He carried that bag to school, to church. He finally got a call in October last year. He said he didn’t believe the nurse when

cornerstones of his independent conservative campaign. Supporting property owner rights, promoting a limited, accountable and efficient local government, and establishing a continuous improvement process within Hanover County are areas he will focus on. Chesley said that his campaign theme “We Can Do Better” is a call to reach for excellence. He served in the U.S. Navy and has held leadership positions in small and large organizations on the local, state and national level. He earned his doctorate in Educational she told him a donor was ready and they needed him at the hospital as soon as he could get there. “I thought it was a joke – I gave the phone to my wife,” he said. Surgery lasted from dinnertime that night until early the next morning, he recalled. Dandridge was back home by mid-December. While some patients who need dual transplants have them done one organ at a time, his condition led his doctors to do both at the same time. The heart and kidney are “married in some ways -- where one is stressed, the other can become diseased,” Dr. Keyur Shah, a cardiologist and section chief of heart failure at the VCU Health Pauley Heart Center, said. He said Dandridge “was starting to deteriorate -- every time we peeled back another layer of the onion, we found another hurdle.” Shah said between the Pauley Heart Center and the Hume-Lee Transplant Center, VCU completes more than 200 kidney transplants, and roughly 25 to 30 heart transplants annually. Only a few transplants, two or three, involve both the heart and kidney. Using one donor decreases the chances that the organs will be rejected by the host. It also lowers the risk of infections. Shah said heart transplant

patients, on average, return to a similar or better quality of life. The average number of years patients survive after such a surgery is 13 years. “What you offer someone who is going to die in the next year is 13 years of a better quality life,” he said, adding that in Dandridge’s case, “those last few months, we were all crossing our fingers and saying our prayers.” “It’s not the fountain of youth but it’s a remarkable intervention,” Shah continued, noting that as medicine continues to evolve and opportunities like Dandridge received become more common, even to a heart doctor like himself, “it seems surreal, like it’s out of a science book.” ***** Dandridge’ wife, Carolyn, arrived at Pole Green this morning as the fanfare was wrapping up. The celebration warmed her heart, though she also was there to check on her husband of 33 years. They have four children, four grandchildren and a fifth grandchild on the way. Three years ago, the future wasn’t promised. Her husband was 40 pounds lighter and getting thinner as his organs weakened. “It’s been a long three and a half years,” she said, admitting that watching him leave the house this morning to go back to work was bittersweet. “I’m kind of nervous hav-

ing him back at work,” she said, then paused. “But Pole Green is in his blood -- it’s all he talks about.” Dandridge, however, said he was ready. “I just wanted to be on time,” he said. “I’m good to go.” Pole Green principal Rhonda Voorhees said she worked with Dandridge at Stonewall Jackson Middle School before joining Pole Green in 2001. “He was calling me 48 hours after his surgery asking who was here in his place, and were they taking care of everything,” she said. Dandridge addressed the media at Pole Green after the students and teachers and everyone else went back to class. He said his Pole Green family is just that -- a family -- and he’s thankful that he can walk the halls of the school and see his school family again. “This is family -- we’ve been a family for years,” he said, “and I just love them (and) I love them for loving me.” He said a higher power is the only reason he’s here. “I just give God all the glory,” he said, because his life could’ve taken another turn. “I thank him for looking at me because a lot of people (are) still waiting on kidneys and hearts. God still heals people - people don’t believe it, but God heals everybody.”

The show will go on -- just in a different format

ow! That was my initial reaction to my first Ashland Musical Variety Show in March 2009. I had moved to Hanover County the previous July, so I was still becoming familiar with people and places. We hadn’t launched the Ashland-Hanover Local yet, but I knew I had to attend the Variety Show. No matter where you live in the area, it’s a must-see -- and so very entertaining. The always-gracious and accommodating Sue Forbes Watson and Lorie Foley made this newcomer feel welcome for my first show 10 years ago. OK, that jarred me -- it’s been a decade. Time does fly when you’re having fun.

The talent that takes the stage at the Blackwell Auditorium on the campus of Randolph-Macon College is incredible. As someone whose primary talent would probably considered the speed with which I type. In other words, if you see me on a stage, I’m lost. This year, due to a construction project at Blackwell Auditorium, there won’t be a Variety Show per se. But you know Sue and Lorie won’t just leave 2019 without providing something for their community. On Sunday, at 1 and 4 p.m., the two will present “The Complicated and Hilarious History of the Ashland Musical Variety Show!” at the Ashland Theatre. For $10 per person, you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy what Sue and Lorie refer to as “a multimedia retrospective of the first 35 years

of the show.” Proceeds will benefit the Ashland Museum, in addition to offsetting the costs of renting the theatre. Sue is one of the co-founders of the show, which debuted in 1982 to raise funds for the Hanover Arts and Activities Center. It has been an every other year staple since 1983. Lorie came on board in 1997. Having had the good fortune to attend several shows, I look forward to the perspective the dynamic duo will provide. Trust me, it will be filled with amazing talent and laughs galore. Thanks to Sue, Lorie and all those who volunteer their time to make the Ashland Musical Variety Show an event to look forward to every other year, we say “Thank you” in advance, with the knowledge that whatever they offer will be well worth your time.

Fair weather and smooth sailing -- goodbye to Sailor Bob By Jim Ridolphi Contributing Columnist It was a different era in 1959 when my parents packed us into the car and drove downtown to see the Tobacco Festival Parade. It’s hard to imagine today that, in its heyday, tobacco was king in the Old Belt of the South, and Richmond celebrated its association with many

of the major manufacturers of cigarettes at the time. Floats covered in tobacco leaves and models dressed as cigarettes proudly proceeded down Broad Street to the Boulevard and then on to old Parker Field. Richmond inherited a festival that began in South Boston highlighting the region’s love of tobacco, complete with beauty pageants, elegant balls,

the parade and a football game on Saturday. As we huddled in the cool autumn evening, my father called my attention to the neatly dressed and uniformly marching Hargrave Military Academy Band, but my eyes were fixed on the float that followed. It was a land schooner perched atop a truck occupied by a sailor I’d seen on local television named Sailor

Bob. As the truck passed, the ship’s only occupant smiled and waved at admiring fans. Now, I wasn’t a regular Sailor Bob watcher, often opting for the Mickey Mouse Club or another local celebrity kids show called Dandy Beagle. When I did watch Bob Griggs do his thing, I marveled at the ease he displayed while drawing cartoons, see BOB, pg. 18

Witness to effects of medical weed talks about relief I was dead-set against usage of marijuana in any form for any reason. But I did an about-face when, as a volunteer in Del. Chris Peace’s campaign headquarters, I read a letter from a constituent, written for her husband who had facial cancer related to agent orange. She wanted Del. Peace to vote in favor of medical marijuana. She went into great detail about the disfigurement of her husband’s face from the cancer and surgeries and how much he suffered on a daily basis. You couldn’t help but feel compassion for this man. She also stated his only relief was smoking marijuana. The association of my generation with marijuana is “smoking weed.” But I started thinking in medical terms. Isn’t marijuana just another drug to help those in pain? I am all for medicinal marijuana but dead-set against recreational purposes because it robs a person of their motivation. We do a disservice to those who use by approving recreational marijuana.

Governor should demand federal pot ban be lifted One of the most racially motivated and enacted laws on the books is the federal ban on marijuana. Gov. Northam should demand President Trump to immediately issue an executive order to DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) to lift federal ban (unscheduled marijuana) of racially motivated marijuana laws -- not only a racial unconstitutional law but no scientific evidence that marijuana is any more dangerous than sugar, tobacco and alcohol, to name a few.

He said several community meetings took place regarding the project where concerns were raised that included impacts on property values, visual impact or view shed effects, environmental concerns, and the loss of agricultural land. The applicant revised the plans in an effort to address some of these concerns, including eliminating one of the entrances to the site, but, for some, it wasn’t enough. The company plans and coordinates the project, including obtaining approvals from local government. The project is designed to sell its solar powered energy to Dominion, enough to power about 3,000 homes in the area. The proposed generating facility also requires state DEQ (Department of Environmental Quality) approval. When the project was approved by the Planning Commission, members added a requirement that quarterly complaint reports be provided, but staff removed that requirement from the final application. Maloney said those complaints would end up in the Planning Department. Gia Clarke of One Energy Renewables told the supervisors that the company is involved in a number of similar projects across the nation. Representing the landowners, Johanna Townsend and her husband Gregory told board members “farming is fraught with challenges.” Those challenges, she said, sometimes require farmers to

most funds will be named Hanover’s Superhero! The average construction cost of a Hanover Habitat home is $100,000 (not including land and infrastructure costs). Five thousand dollars could provide the funding for a number of construction components such as the roof

costs, partial costs for the foundation, the costs for windows and doors, or even the electrical costs.” The four honorees have until Tuesday, March 12, to complete the challenge. Money can be donated online at www.hanoverhfh. org/HanoverHERO or sent

via mail to Hanover Habitat administrative offices at 9161 Atlee Rd., Suite B Mechanicsville, VA 23116. Those wishing to attend the celebration may purchase tickets online at www. hanoverhfh.org/herolunch or by calling the office at 804569-6108.

make difficult choices. “So here we are this evening pursuing one of those choices, an opportunity to lease the land to support the installation of a solar farm,” Townsend said. She said her family had performed due diligence in its consideration of the project, its effects on the community and environmental concerns. “We have tried to be proactive in avoiding or at least minimizing potential impacts both to our neighbors and to ourselves,” she said. “We want to continue to be good farming neighbors; we just need to change crops, so to speak.” Two neighbors who live near the proposed project expressed concerns with the plans and asked the board to deny the application. Once that farmland is lost, Marion Jones said it can never be replaced. She also took issue with the project being referred to as a solar farm. “There is nothing beautiful about solar panels compared to a field of growing wheat or corn or soybeans,” Jones said. “With your approval, which I hope you deny tonight, it will no longer be a farm, and, most likely, never will be. Calling it a solar farm is an insult to the industry of agriculture.” Steven Atkinson’s home affronts the project and he expressed a need for the use of underground power lines to preserve the rural setting that surrounds the proposal. He also cited a Historical Society report that stated the project would have a negative impact on the county’s historic resources, among other concerns.

“I’m not here tonight to debate the merits of renewable energy, but the fact is historical resources are non-renewable. Once they’re gone, they’re gone,” Atkinson said. The lifelong Hanover resident lives adjacent to the property on a private road with two other residences. Atkinson said he and his neighbors paid extra to have their electrical lines buried, and asked if the applicant would commit to the same procedure. Clarke said One Energy is in negotiations with Dominion regarding hook-up options, but said lines on the property would be buried. She was unclear as to whether the connection to Mechanicsville Turnpike would be buried. She said it could require as many as five poles to make that connection. Supervisors approved a similar request in 2017 to establish a solar generating plant on the south side of Mechanicsville Turnpike near Broaddus Flats, but Davis said the two projects are drastically different. “This is substantially different — different in location, although it’s very close and it has different aspects to it,” Davis said. He cited the historical significance of the property in question, the scenic designation placed on River Road, the surrounding properties directly adjacent to the project. “The negative impacts associated with this proposal are substantial. This is a land use matter and we must recognize the adverse impacts that this particular project will have on some of our designated historic

resources and to the folks who live in that area,” Davis said. He contended that the generating plant is a light industrial use, not agriculture-related. He voiced his opposition to this particular application, but wholeheartedly expressed his support for solar energy projects. He also acknowledges that opportunities like solar power generation offer farmers financial incentives and options. “I respect that,” he said. But he made a clear distinction between agricultural and industrial uses. “I think we need to change the term solar farm or stop using it,” Davis said. “This is not a farming operation. This is an industrial operation.” “It will absolutely affect property values negatively,” he added. “This really isn’t a conversation about renewable energy but what we’re going to allow on this agricultural land.” Ashland supervisor Faye Prichard had a different take on the proposed project. “Solar fields are not farmland lost forever. They are farmland being used for alternate purposes and they do no long-term damage to the farmland.” “Solar farms give farmers options. There are many communities where solar farms are considered a really attractive feature of the landscape and if they are done well, that can certainly happen,” Prichard said. Prichard was joined by Scott Wyatt, Wayne Hazzard and Angela Kelly-Wiecek in voting against the denial, while Canova Peterson and Bucky Stanley joined Davis in opposing the project.

Pets of the Week Photos submitted by Andrew Hodnett

The Hanover County Pound, located at 12471 Taylor Complex Lane in Ashland, has wonderful pets available to a good home. Muffin, left, 541545, is a 3-year-old (estimated) female canine/ hound mix. She has had her first set of vaccines and is Heartworm test negative. Muffin is a very sweet girl. She came to the shelter as a stray about a month ago. She is a well-mannered dog who probably has been a house dog. Muffin is house-trained. She also is very social around all people and most other dogs. Muffin should adjust well with any house hold. She will make a great companion. Gobbler, right, 533871, is an 8-yearold (estimated) neutered male canine/ Labrador mix. He has had his first set of vaccines and is Heartworm test negative. Gobbler is a good dog. He is super friendly with all people. He also has tons of playful energy for his age. Gobbler has been in the shelter since before Thanksgiving. He has done great with the staff, but he would love to have a forever home. Gobbler will do best with an owner who loves to stay active. For more information on these great pets, as well as the many more still in need of homes at the Hanover County Pound Facility, call 804-365-6485 during the day. The hours are 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday. The facility is closed on Sunday and county holidays. You also can visit the website to see other animals available for adoption at http://hanovercounty.gov/Animals/Adopt-a-Pet/.

If you are in an accident: • Remain calm and call 911 • Write down names, addresses and phone numbers of anyone involved including witnesses • Write down the license plate number and state of all vehicles involved • Take photos of the scene and vehicles before they are moved if possible • Get the name and number of the officer who responds to the scene • Don’t sign anything or talk to the other driver’s insurance company without getting legal advice

and how his etchings turned out perfect. He took a few unrecognizable lines and eventually transformed them to a recognizable familiar face or a racing train or sailing ship. And even the best efforts of sidekick Gilly Gull could not rile the evenkeeled Griggs, who patiently listened to the complaints of

his puppet colleagues. There was a lesson to be learned by each episode, but the real significance of Sailor Bob was hidden in his calm delivery, his cool mannerisms and his deliberate approach to the smallest of tasks. He would often read books on air, and just the soothing sound of Griggsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; voice made even the most tired of stories seem new and important. Over the years, Griggs

became a Richmond landmark, and that old schooner as recognizable as Miller and Rhoads or Thalhimers. When Griggs wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t on the air, he spent time in the community appearing at special events. I distinctly remember a cold day in March when Griggs set up shop in the old mall at Willow Lawn and passed out miniature loaves of Wonder Bread. When Griggs passed away

last week following a short illness at age 85, the memorials and accolades flowed to his Facebook page, many filled with heartfelt sadness at the loss of a person who many spent numerous afternoons listening to and learning from. One described Griggs as a local version of Fred Rogers from Mr. Rogers Neighborhood, and the comparison is valid. Both displayed a calm understanding that was

perhaps better interpreted by children and too corny for most adults. The old Tobacco Festival and its festivities are long gone, fallen victim to a nation that turned on tobacco, at least publicly. Those old days of Harvey Hudson riding in a Commonwealth Ford with Gene Loving are just a memory, and the importance of the parade and the festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passing are rarely debated. For many, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a time best forgotten. But, for the thousands of children who depended on Sailor Bob to navigate them through a confusing world, his memory wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be forgotten â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and those final words of each show mean more now than ever. And, to the man who spoke them, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to bid farewell and a word of thanks to Bob Griggs, affectionately known to many of us as Sailor Bob. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fair weather and smooth sailing.â&#x20AC;?

Yellow Jackets reach NCAA Round of 16 By Dave Lawrence Sports Editor ASHLAND – As RandolphMacon entered the final 10 minutes of its NCAA Division III second-round game against York College of Pennsylvania, it looked like the Yellow Jackets might be letting their season slip away. They had seen a 10-point lead evaporate as the Spartans took the lead with 10:36 remaining in the game. But Randolph-Macon wasn’t about to give up. The chill wind that had cooled its offense began blowing in York’s direction and the Yellow Jackets took advantage, going on a 16-0 run to close the door on the Spartans’ upset bid for a 78-60 victory and a ticket to the Round of 16 for the third time since 2013. “I’m still excited. I’m superproud of these guys,” said Randolph-Macon head men’s basketball coach Josh Merkel. “Next-man-up mentality. I thought these guys played great defensively. I thought we stayed in the fight. We had the halftime lead. We extended that lead. We handled a couple of runs, a couple of pushes.” The Yellow Jackets (27-3) will head to Amherst College in Amherst, Massachusetts, for the next round of the D-III tournament, playing Swarthmore (263) Friday. The winner of that game will face the winner of the

the Spartans took a 28-26 lead with 6:13 remaining in the half. Corey Bays hit a 3-point shot to put the Yellow Jackets ahead again with 5:32 left, and Randolph-Macon, which led 33-31 as time was running out in the first half, looked to extend the lead when Buzz

Anthony drove to the basket for a successful layup at the buzzer. His shot, however, was ruled too late and the goal was not allowed. Randolph-Macon opened the second half with a 5-0 run inaugurated by a 3-point goal by Luke Neeley. The Yellow

Jackets extended their lead to 8 points, 45-37, before the Spartans began to claw back as Randolph-Macon’s offense went into a swoon, struggling to make a shot until Grayson Midulla fought through a scrum to make a layup to tie the game 49-49 with 10:00 remain-

ing in the game. That goal was enough to re-invigorate the Yellow Jacket offense. Randolph-Macon took the lead and extended it to 63-49 before York’s Joey Polczynski hit a 3-pointer to get the Spartans see NCAA, pg. 25 


Tournament selection poses thorny problem By Rob Witham For the Mechanicsville Local Basketball champions in Region 5B were crowned on Feb. 22, but there have been bigger questions than who will be playing and who might win. While other local high school regions allow all members to participate in the basketball postseason, including Region 6B and 4B, why does 5B allow only eight of 15 members to participant? And how exactly do teams qualify? Some of the teams that arguably deserved a shot at the playoffs were left out. The Atlee girls finished the season 14-8, but the final playoff spot went to a Meadowbrook team that played only 21 games, not a full 22, and finished 11-10. On the boys side, Lee-Davis also finished 14-8, its best record in a quarter-century. But the Confederates missed out last Friday while in Region 4B – where all 13 teams qualify – their winless rival, Patrick Henry, played Powhatan in an opening-round game. Lee-Davis coach Chad Bishop would not complain about the system in place, but he was disappointed for his seniors. “Our guys had an understanding of what [the point system] was. Whether [the system] should be or should not be, it is what it is,” Bishop said. “It makes it very tricky because you’re trying to figure out how to schedule and who to schedule, and it’s always changing.” A number of coaches say more basketball teams deserve to make the tournament. Basketball is a sport that traditionally allows every team into a playoff tournament for an opportunity to advance. Last year, Highland Springs made

the region tournament as the eighth and final seed, upset No. 1 L.C. Bird and reached the state tournament. The Virginia High School League allows regions the autonomy to decide how many teams qualify for the playoffs and, to some extent, how their power rating to determine qualifiers is structured. The local athletic directors who structure the tournament have to consider fairness across all sports and revenue. A game that involves a 15 seed could be a blowout and attract so few fans that the game’s expenses exceed its revenue. Thus, the decision was made to allow just eight teams in all sports. “We’re looking to put the top teams in from the region,” said Henrico athletic director Rob Welch, one of the tournament’s directors. “A 15 vs. 1 in field hockey is a nightmare, so we wanted the top eight teams.” Plus, the money made at basketball and football games pay for forensics, theater and tennis tournaments, so turning a profit at region basketball games is essential. Welch said the region is willing to look at a different number of postseason qualifiers in different sports, in light of basketball teams with winning records missing the playoffs the past two seasons. J.R. Tucker athletic director Chris Brown, the other tournament director, noted that scheduling decisions matter. Games against private schools and out of state teams do not count toward the region standings. But many fans don’t know their team’s place in the power rating. While the system is similar to the VHSL rating scale for football, it isn’t easily accessible on a website like the football standings. There are no region

R-MC thrashes Morrisville in NCAA opener in the ODAC and fifth in the nation in fewest turnovers per game at 10, and they finished this contest with just 11. By the end of the first half, Morrisville State senior Lamel Faison had 15 of his team’s 31 points, while Williams had 12 points, two 3-pointers, and five rebounds for RandolphMacon. As Macon brought the ball up the floor to begin the second, Faison barked instructions for his teammates to get prepared on defense. Bays had his own response for the defender. He poured in two 3-pointers within the first three possessions of the half – “booms” ensued. The Mustangs got as close as 15 during the middle stretch of the second half, but Macon maintained firm control of the game and got the sold out crowd to their feet as they moved to 11-0 inside of Crenshaw Gymnasium this season. “It’s a hostile environment, fun to play in, and I loved every second of it” Bays said. “I can’t wait to do it all tomorrow.” “We’ve been prepping and training all year for quick turnarounds,” Williams said. “This is a great win but we didn’t put all this work in for one win, we’ve got to let it go and get after this next one.” Quentin Mayo can be reached at qmayo@timesdispatch.com.

By Quinton Mayo Richmond Times-Dispatch ASHLAND – A pair of “booming” performances by Corey Bays and Darryl Williams resulted in a Randolph-Macon rout, as the Yellow Jackets pushed past Morrisville State in first round of the NCAA Division III tournament 95-70 on Friday at Crenshaw Gymnasium. Bays led all scorers by tying his career high of 24 points and setting a career mark for made field goals with nine. Most of his scoring came from behind the arc as he knocked down six of his 11 three-point attempts, while chanting “boom” after each one trickled through the twine. “I have to give credit to my teammates,” Bays said. “They were finding me all game long. Every one of my threes were assisted – all my points were assisted – so all the credit goes to them. “I’m just trying to play with a positive energy throughout the entire game, even when one doesn’t fall; just keep my head up and keep shooting. On to the next one.” Williams was locked in from the opening tip as well, setting a career high with 22 points on 9-of-11 shooting, and dropping in three 3-pointers of his own. “We play well together as a team,” Williams said. “We trusted each other, guys got to their spots. This isn’t an individual accolade, it’s a team effort.” Shots came easy all night long for the Yellow Jackets, and their defensive prowess played a large part in that. RandolphMacon entered the game ranked fifth in the nation in scoring defense, sitting at 61.7. They forced 22 Mustang turnovers, 14 coming in the first half of play, and came away

Jackets take 3-of-4 on diamond By Dave Lawrence Sports Editor ASHLAND – It took a heroic effort, but after all the rain Friday night and Saturday morning, Randolph-Macon’s softball team got their field in playing shape in time for a doubleheader with Stevenson University Saturday afternoon. The effort proved worthwhile. The Yellow Jackets put forth a dominant offensive performance to sweep the Mustangs 7-1 and 11-3. Randolph-Macon racked up nine hits in the opener and 15 in the nightcap. “We hit the ball a lot better today,” said Yellow Jacket head softball coach Kevin Proffitt. “Last week when we split with Mary [Washington], we had of pop-ups. … I guess it could have been some first-day, firstgame jitters or whatever. But we have a pretty experienced team, so whatever it was, we shook it out. Randolph-Macon pitcher Candace Whittemore started the day by giving up a run on a sacrifice fly in the first inning of the opener, but she slammed the door on the Mustangs after that. She struck out seven and helped her cause offensively with a single and a run scored in the first inning. Shortstop Savannah Wood led Randolph-Macon in the opener, going 3-of-3 with two

Stevenson spurt costly to R-MC lax By Dave Lawrence Sports Editor

Randolph-Macon outfielder Kerstin Roth (20) slides safely home in the second inning of the Yellow Jackets’ 11-3 win over visiting Stevenson in the nightcap of a doublheader Saturday.

RBI. Leadoff batter and right fielder Kerstin Roth went 2-of-3 with two runs scored. Catcher Sami Davidson had the only extra-base hit of the game, connected on a double for two RBI. Roth went 3-of-3 again in the nightcap for three runs scored. Designated player Ashley Ramsey was likewise perfect in multiple at-bats for the Yellow Jackets, going 2-of-2

with two RBI and a run scored. But left fielder Kaitlyn Deeter connected for the big blast of the day – a towering home run over the left-field fence for two runs. Center fielder Shelby Hill and pinch hitter Ali Celiberti each had doubles. By the time the slugging was over, Wood tallied three RBI, with third baseman/catcher Taylor Sanderford adding two

more. Gettysburg gambled on an overnight trip to Ashland for another softball doubleheader. The gamble paid off, with the Bullets pulling off an 8-7 win in eight innings in the opener, and the Yellow Jackets inning 3-1 in the nightcap. Dave Lawrence can be reached at dlawrence@mechlocal.com.

a 52-49 lead. While the crowd responded to the basket, Woods was not in a celebratory mood. “I was thinking get back on defense. There’s a whole lot of game left. One play at a time,” said Woods who finished with 13 points. The run became a rout. Sophomore guard Buzz Anthony (21 points, nine

rebounds and eight assists) connected on a 3-point goal. Senior forward Darryl Williams (12 points) hit a 3 next to a thunderous roar from the crowd. Junior guard Corey Bays (11 points) then got the put-back after a blocked shot to make it 60-49. On its next possession, York missed three consecutive shots. After the third miss, Bays came

down with the rebound. On the ensuing possession, Midulla missed the layup, but came down with the rebound and tossed the ball back out. With 4:46 on the clock, Bays got an open look, connected on a 3-point attempt, and punctuated the moment with a fist pump on the court as the roaring home crowd rose to its feet. The Randolph-Macon fans

ASHLAND – RandolphMacon’s women’s lacrosse team was playing catchup to visiting Stevenson most of the afternoon Saturday at Day Field, but the Mustangs could never quite pull away. At least not until the final seven minutes of the game, where goals by Kaitlyn Kozlowski and Carly Bowes put them ahead for good in a 14-12 win over the hosts. Bowes finished with a game-high four goals for Stevenson. Caroline Murphy

and Dana Stevens each had three, while Kozlowski scored twice. Lindsay Seip recorded a game-high three assists. Randolph-Macon put forth a balanced offensive attack, but Stevenson’s defense closed the gaps down the stretch and the Yellow Jackets were unable to pry an opening. “We’ve been struggling a little bit offensively,” said Randolph-Macon head women’s lacrosse coach M.K. Geratowski. “When we scored, we scored really, really see COSTLY, pg. 26

McKenzie Hynson and Saunders Riley each had a pair of goals. But the Mustangs held the edge in both shots (34 to 29) and shots-on-goal (28 to 21). Randolph-Macon also yielded 17 turnovers to 13 for Stevenson. Geratowski said the Yellow Jackets need to work on limiting “silly” turnovers. “If a defense is playing really well and they take a check on

cial interest group that makes tons of money keeping weed illegal. Another news flash is Big Pharma and Big Alcohol both have very potent substances, big doses small doses, so it only makes sense that pot have high THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol to low THC content, consumers choice just like other drugs and alcohol, Granny might want some “good stuff” every now and then. As equally important, states with recreation use laws have less “other drugs” being abused, especially opiates which means less death. Over 150,000 grieving families (per year) who’s loved one died as a direct result of alcohol and opiates wish their deceased love one just smoked weed. Over 20% of our criminal justice budgets are directly tied into weed, and, if we are truly

a democracy, how can 67% of its population want marijuana legal for consumer use yet we allow those that make money off this racially motivated law exist? Treat marijuana the same as alcohol. No need for medical smoke screen if the right call is made. John Shinholser Mechanicsville

Resident asks about Peace’s future with GOP It has been brought to our attention that Del. Chris Peace may currently be in bad standing with the Hanover County Republican Committee. I am told he has not attended a meeting or paid dues in over a year. Is Del. Peace still a Republican? Does he plan to run as a Republican? After his vote for Medicaid expansion we understand his reluctance to call himself a conservative. Scott Wyatt is running for

the 97th District House seat. Wyatt knows the huge expense for Medicaid expansion will mean less money for roads, less money for law enforcement and EMS, less money for education and more unfunded mandates. Wyatt is a true social and fiscal conservative. Citizens of the 97th District can count on Wyatt to vote in their best interest. It is time for a change in our 97th District. Career politicians who change their positions according to the direction of the political wind must be voted out. We do not expect Peace to change so he must be replaced. Citizens can vote for Scott Wyatt with complete confidence that he will do exactly what he says. No matter which way the political wind blows. Larnie C.

A Special Supplement to The Mechanicsville Local | March 6, 2019

What to look for during home roof inspections old weather can be tough on a home, and perhaps no part of a home is more vulnerable to harsh winter weather than its roof. Fallen snow can equate to several pounds of pressure placed on a residential roof. Roofs do not often collapse under heavy snowfall. But adverse winter weather conditions can compromise roofs in other ways. Water leakage and damage to the roof ’s interior are just two of the potentially problematic issues that can arise when roofs are battered by cold, blustery weather. That’s why many home improvement specialists advise homeowners to conduct roof inspections prior to the start of winter. Many homeowners can conduct their own cursory roof inspections, but they may not know exactly what to look for. The National Roofing Contractors Association says that there are certain key areas to inspect that may reveal some telltale signs of roof damage.  Curled, cracked or missing shingles may prove troublesome. Inclement weather can test the strength of even the most durable roofs. Even though many roofs are designed to last up to 30 years, some may need to be replaced early, particularly when they have been exposed to harsh weather over a period of years. Individual shingles can be replaced as spot treatments, but if the damage is widespread, a new roof may be necessary.  Attic leaks or water else-

Inspect a roof each fall to get an idea of the potential damage and any necessary repairs that may be needed before nasty weather sets in.

where might signal issues with the roof. Figure out if water inside the home is coming from the roof. Water stains do not always indicate problems with the roofing, but it’s better to be safe than sorry.  Look for protective granules wearing off. If gutters are filled with the sandy granular material that coats roofing shingles, that may be a sign of an aging or damaged roof.  Inspect flashing. Professional roofers can recognize properly installed flashing, the material that connects the roof to other parts of the house that adjoin the roof, like skylights or a chimneys. Poorly installed flashing can cause leaks. Stains that appear below chimneys or near attic windows may indicate new flashing, and not new shingles, is needed.  Gutters and downspouts should be in good condition. A roof is the sum of its parts,

and that includes downspouts and gutters. If the gutters are clogged or damaged, they cannot direct water away from the house properly. Snow, leaves and other debris needs to be cleared from gutters to help them function at optimal capacity.  Animals and insects can cause damage, too. It’s not just poor weather that homeowners need to consider with regard to roof damage. Boring insects and animals may cause problems with roofs as well. A roof inspection may shed light on potential pest problems. Holes or nesting materials may indicate that an animal or animals are using the attic as a shelter from the elements. Get to the root of issues with your home’s roof before they become bigger problems once winter arrives. A thorough inspection can reveal problems that may prove costly if ignored. - Metro Creative

When it can be smart to hire a painting pro

Did you know? Debris from home improvement projects can often be recycled. According to Waste Management, the largest residential recycler and renewable energy provider in North America, common construction materials such as concrete, porcelain, tile, lumber, metals, masonry, plastic, carpet, and insulation can potentially be recycled. When recycled, debris from construction projects may ultimately be used in various ways to benefit the planet. For example, such debris may used as inerts that become road base, while clear wood may be transformed into mulch or biomass fuel. Crushed concrete can go on to live a second life as gravel or become dry aggregate for new concrete. Homeowners who want to recycle as much of their home improvement project debris as possible can work with Waste Management and/or their contractors to ensure the materials they no longer need continue to be put to good use. - Metro Creative

ting pristine finished results. Walls and ceilings must be properly repaired and prepared even before a base coat is applied. Professional painters also have an eye for details. And because professional painters make a business out of doing interior and exterior surfaces, they understand which techniques can improve efficiency. That means a professional job can typically be completed much more quickly than a DIY project. Even though some people think they’ll save money by painting their own homes, that’s not necessarily true. Professionals already have all the equipment necessary, unlike novices who may need to make repeated and potentially costly trips to the hardware store for supplies. Plus, if mistakes happen, DIYers have to spend additional time and money fixing them. Safety can be a large motivator for turning painting over to a pro. Navigating exterior areas or tall interior ceilings can be challenging and may require scaffolding or tall ladders DIYers do not have. Risk of falls or other injuries increase with lack of experience. Painting can give a home a facelift, and oftentimes it is smart to turn the work over to professionals to ensure the job is done just right. - Metro Creative

ew things can revitalize a home more readily than a fresh coat of paint. Thanks in part to the affordability of paint and its ease of application, painting is something that even novice DIYers can typically handle. According to the marketing advice guru Brandon Gaille, it is estimated that residential interior paint only lasts around three years before it needs to be updated. Exterior paint can fade, chip and peel due to various environmental factors. As a result, many homes can likely use a fresh coat of paint in at least one room. As DIY-friendly as painting can be, when attempting to paint the interior or exterior of their homes, homeowners may learn that some painting projects are best left to the professionals. Painting requires skill, patience and a knowledge of how various paints Ñ including finishes for particular applications Ñ will hold up. Novice painters may do more harm than good by dripping paint on expensive carpeting or floors or fail to recognize the nuances that indicate a spot-on painting job. Professional painters have spent hours upon hours learning the ropes of what works Ñ and what does not. Painters often understand that painstaking preparatory work is crucial to get-

Spring home improvement Make a front door pop isitors’ impressions of a home are often dictated by the home’s entryway. Must as one may judge a book by its cover, the same can be said about the impression that a front door and entryway can create, regardless of how accurate that impression is. Making certain changes to an entryway can go a long way toward improving curb appeal. Entryways also can set the scene for a home’s interior. Whether one chooses to be classic or bold, modern or traditional, there are various ways to quickly transform a home’s entryway.

If the tree views from the second floor of a home or higher have been compromised, it’s much safer to call a professional tree service.

Tree services can protect your property old weather can take its toll on a property, especially in regions of the world where winters are harsh. Most parts of the landscape are vulnerable to damage from winter storms, but trees may be especially susceptible. By the end of winter, many homeowners wonder if their trees would benefit from some professional TLC. Tree services provide a host of services. While fall is a popular time to remove trees from a property, doing so in spring is not unheard of, especially if trees were affected by winter storms and now pose a threat to a home and the people who live inside it. Homeowners considering tree services can explore the following ways that some professional arbor attention can protect them and their homes.

 Tree services can help protect a home’s foundation. Old trees that stretch well into the sky can be captivating, but they also can pose a threat to a home’s foundation. Such trees may have especially large root zones that may extend beneath walkways and even

a home. In the latter instance, foundations may crack as roots try to stake their claim to the ground beneath a home. According to the home improvement resource HomeAdvisor, homeowners pay an average of just over $4,000 to repair foundation issues, though major problems can cost considerably more than that. A professional tree service can remove aging trees that might be beautiful and aweinspiring but still pose a threat to a home and the areas surrounding it.  Tree services can improve visibility. Trees that have aged a bit since their last trimming might affect the view of a property from inside a home. Overgrown branches can compromise residents’ ability to see and experience the natural beauty just outside their windows. The average homeowner may be able to trim short trees on his or her own, but if views from the second floor of a home or higher have been compromised, it’s much safer to call a professional tree service. Such services have the right tools and experienced personnel necessary to safely trim high

branches on tall trees.  Tree services can help prevent future damage. Even if trees made it through a recent winter unscathed, that’s no guarantee next winter or even the coming seasons of spring, summer and fall won’t ultimately prove their undoing. Travelers Insurance notes that weather-related roof damage, including damage resulting from falling limbs and branches weighed down by snow during the winter months, accounted for more than half of all Travelers property loss claims between 2009 and 2016. According to BNC Insurance and Risk Advisors, homeowners may be liable if a tree they knew posed a threat falls onto a passerby or a neighbor’s property and causes damage or injury. Having all trees properly trimmed each year, but especially those that can fall on your home and your neighbors’ homes, may prevent future damage and legal issues. Tree services can ensure trees maintain their awe-inspiring beauty and help homeowners protect their homes and their belongings. - Metro Creative

Bold front door color Color can dramatically enhance an entryway. Painting an existing door or replacing it with a more vivid option can do the trick. The DIY Network says certain colors stand out as favorites. These include turquoise, yellow, red, indigo, orange, and black. The door color should complement the other shades of the home, such as those on siding and trim. Custom walkway Guide guests right to the front door with an attractive (and safe) walkway. Stamped concrete or decorative paver blocks may fit the bill. This walkway can extend to the street or to the driveway. Contain plants Landscaping around the entryway should be neat and well-tended. Overgrown plants or shrubbery may give off an air of neglect. Container plants and carefully curated shrubs can create a neat and inviting aura.

Highlight the address Make sure the home can be found easily with bold and decorative house numbers. Consider two different address signs: one illuminated and easily viewed from the curb, and another closer to the front door. Utilize high-end materials The relatively small area of real estate by the front door enables homeowners to splurge on more opulent materials that can really add a feeling of luxury. These can include colorful tiles, ornate planters, decorative wooden doors, or elaborate knobs and lighting fixtures. Add architectural details Find out which architectural elements will meld with the style of the home and then incorporate them. Moldings, columns, shutters, and trim are areas to consider. The entryway to a home garners a lot of attention. Homeowners can enhance their spaces with entryways that really make a statement. - Metro Creative

Are backyard chickens right for you? aising backyard chickens has been a growing phenomenon for several years. Many cities have passed laws legalizing backyard chickens, encouraging many to raise chickens as a rewarding hobby. One of the biggest benefits to raising backyard chickens is that their eggs are fresher and often tastier than store-bought varieties. Hens can lay one egg per day. Multiply that egg per hen, and breakfast is always available. Another benefit to chickens is they produce a natural fertilizer that can be used in gardens. ‘The Old Farmer’s Almanac’ says chicken manure can be composted, aged and eventually added to the garden. In about six months, a person will accumulate about one cubic foot of manure per chicken. Egg shells and other compostable material can be added to create an even richer formula. Chickens also can help control bugs around the yard, offers the experts at Tractor Supply Company. Before investing in backyard chickens, people should determine if chickens will fit with their lifestyle. Costs and care are a big consideration. Each chick will cost anywhere between $3 to $5 a bird. Then there’s feed to consider. The most expensive item will likely be the coop. The experts at The Happy Chicken Coop, a resource for raising chickens and start-

Outdoor improvements to boost home value hether home improvement projects are design to improve the interior or exterior of a house, focusing on renovations that make the most financial sense can benefit homeowners in the long run. The right renovations can be assets if and when homeowners decide to sell their homes. So how does one get started? First and foremost, speak to a local real estate agent who is knowledgeable about trends in the community. While a swimming pool may be something coveted in one area, it may impede sales in another. It also helps to study generalized trends and data from various home improvement industry analysts to guide upcoming projects. The following outdoor projects are just a few renovations that tend to add value.

Fire pit A fire pit is a great place to gather most months of the

year. Bob Vila and CBS news report that a fire pit realizes a 78 percent return on investment, or ROI. Outdoor kitchen Many buyers are looking to utilize their yards as an extension of interior living areas. Cooking, dining and even watching TV outdoors is increasingly popular. Outdoor living areas can be custom designed and built. In addition, prefabricated modular units that require a much smaller commitment of time and money are available. Patio Homeowners who do not already have a patio will find that adding one can increase a home’s value. Patios help a home look neat, add useable space and may help a home to sell quickly. The experts at Space Wise, a division of Extra Space Storage, say that refinishing, repairing and building a new patio offers strong ROI. Deck Deck can be as valuable

as patios. A deck is another outdoor space that can be used for entertaining, dining and more. Remodeling magazine’s 2018 ÒCost vs. ValueÓ report indicates that an $11,000 deck can add about $9,000 in resale value to the home, recouping around 82 percent of the project’s costs. Door update Improve curb appeal with a new, high-end front door and garage doors. If that’s too expensive, a good cleaning and new coat of paint can make an old door look brand new. These easy fixes can improve a home’s look instantly. New landscaping: The National Association of Realtors says an outdoor makeover that includes wellthought out landscaping can net 105 percent ROI. Installing a walkway, adding stone planters, mulching, and planting shrubs are ideas to consider. Many different outdoor projects can add value to a home. - Metro Creative

ing coops, says handy men and women can build homemade coops, but ready-made ones will cost a few hundred dollars. The coop will need to offer around four square feet of space per chicken (or what’s recommended for the breed). Despite being seemingly independent birds, chickens need people to be active caregivers. They require feed and water daily. The chickens will need a caregiver while you vacation. People who are frequently away from home should reconsider chickens. Chickens also are prone to worms, parasites and lice. They need to have rear feathers trimmed to stay clean and

sanitary, and they will require an area where they can ÒdustÓ and self-groom. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises not to cuddle and kiss chickens like pets because they can carry salmonella. Not every coop is completely varmintproof, and some chickens may succumb to predators. Squeamish or sentimental folks may find chickens aren’t the right fit. Chickens require commitment and care that many people can provide. It is essential to do one’s homework to ensure that backyard chickens are a sound investment. - Metro Creative

Emerging deck trends ustom-built decks can expand usable outdoor entertaining spaces. Decks can surround pools and create outdoor patio areas that make it easy to establish multitiered living spaces, improving the functionality of outdoor areas. Certain deck trends have emerged as industry experts’ top picks for the upcoming remodeling and renovation season. For those thinking of revamping an existing deck, or building an entirely new one, these trends are on point.

C

Established perimeters ‘Picture framing’ is not a new trend, but one that has taken greater hold in recent years. The term refers to aesthetically appealing designs that conceal the ends of deck boards for a clean finish. Some designs feature contrasting material colors on the ends for even more impact. This helps create refined perimeters for a polished look. Roof-top decking Urban areas also can benefit from decking to create usable outdoor spaces. In fact, many new condominium and townhouse communities are incorporating roof-top decks into their designs, particularly in communities with water views or other impressive vistas. HGTV experts suggest roof-top decks feature light-colored materials and fixtures to help keep the area cool even in direct sunlight. Distressed hardwood Builder and Developer, a management resource for professional homebuilders, says that the trend for using distressed hardwoods at home has migrated outside. Some decking

manufacturers have recently introduced lowmaintenance composite deck boards that mimic the look and feel of distressed, rustic hardwood flooring. This weathered appearance gives the look of age without the upkeep of real aged wood. Wooden walkways Decking can be the more traditional design people envision with a patio table or outdoor furniture. But it also can consist of wooden walkways or a low-laying patio to accentuate the yard. Mixed materials Homeowners may be inspired by commercial eateries, breweries and urban markets in their exterior design choices. Decks featuring composite materials and aluminum railings blend sophistication, urban appeal and comfort. Personal touches Homeowners can customize their decks with personal touches. It’s not unheard of to wrap columns in stone or glass tiles for more impact. And a vast array of decking colors now enables fun interpretations for outdoor areas. Fire pit conversation area Many decks can incorporate water or fire elements for visual appeal. Gas-fueled fire elements can expand the functionality of decks beyond the warm seasons, or make enjoying them practical on nights when the temperature plummets. Decks are reimagined in many different ways with continually evolving trends. - Metro Creative

Did you know? any homeowners have lofty goals for their homes. Such plans may include extensive renovations or even additions. While many of these projects create beautiful changes in a home, it’s important to consider the impact that renovations can have on property value before beginning a project. Many home improvement projects do not add as much value as homeowners may think they do. In fact, some

homeowners ‘overbuild’ for their neighborhoods. This means the amount of money invested in improvements can likely never be recuperated because the house value simply exceeds those around by too much money. To avoid overbuilding, homeowners can ask themselves several questions before beginning a renovation project.  Will my house be the largest house in the neighborhood? Larger homes tend to have a lower price per square foot, so you may not want to improve to this extent.

 Will the house blend with others in the area? If your house will stick out like a sore thumb, it will detract from its own value and could impact the value of other homes in the area.  Have I examined the cost vs. value of the project? Many home improvement resources analyze the cost of a project versus the overall value of that project with regard to property value. For example, a $100,000 basement remodel may not add $100,000 to the value of the home in the event you choose to sell down the line. It’s important to know which projects provide the best return on investment. - Metro Creative
