School board considers solar options to save money By Jim Ridolphi for The Mechanicsville Local

Jim Ridolphi for The Local

Seth Herman, a representative of Sun Tribe Solar, addressed the Hanover County School Board on Tuesday, May 14, about a proposal that may save $10 million in electricity over the course of 30 years.

ASHLAND -- Hanover County School Board members are scheduled to consider a power-to-purchase agreement with Sun Tribe Solar that could potentially save $10 million in electricity costs during the 30-year life of the contract. The proposal being considered would place solar panels at eight county schools, either in roof-mounted arrangements or ground-based collectors. Board representatives took Circle, Mechanicsville.

This often means reducing density and negotiating developer provided road improvements, “said Kelly-Wiecek. “I championed an initiative to reduce the allowable suburban density while maintaining our requirement that all new neighborhoods have a minimum of 20% open space.” The Chickahominy District is one of three in the county entirely in the Suburban Services Area -- marked by access to public utilities and served by major road networks -- and designated for suburban resi-

Seth Herman of Sun Tribe presented some highlights of the potential plan and its benefits at last week’s regular school board meeting. “This is an opportunity to provide electricity to you at a rate cheaper than you are currently paying,” Herman said. “It’s a way for the system to

save $100,000 in year one by purchasing electricity from Sun Tribe Solar, with cumulative lifetime savings of over $10 million.” Sun Tribe, according to Herman, is the largest solar power provider in the state and is currently in relationships with communities like Henrico and Fairfax. The key element of this plan is the power-to-purchase agreement that works like this: HCPS will receive two

dential and commercial uses. Hanover is 80% rural and, per the Comprehensive Plan, will remain so for the next 30 years. Hanover maintains an average 1.4% growth rate, which Kelly-Wiecek said is very low but healthy in terms of maintaining a healthy business climate. “We’ve developed a reputation as a business-friendly county with an outstanding workforce and award-winning law enforcement.” She opposed the elimination of cash proffers in 2012, and helped restore $15 million in “sliding scale” transportation proffers in 2013. As Legislative Committee chair, she fought the 2016 Proffer Legislation in the General Assembly. She also listed restoring

funds for the Atlee Library, passing the “Active Living Chapter” to improve amenities in future developments and provide connectivity in future developments, Phase 1 Atlee Station Road widening, and working with the school board to initiate the school technology/device program among her accomplishments. “We delivered a balanced budget every year without raising taxes. Property values are up and Hanover remains in excellent financial shape as one of the smallest counties in the nation with a AAA bond rating,” Kelly-Wiecek said. She hosts a budget town hall meeting every year, as well as “A Positive Vision for Hanover” to engage citizens on long-term plans for landuse and growth. As board chair in 2017, she published

Raised in Central Virginia, Kelly-Wiecek is a 21-year resident of Hanover County. She has a Bachelor’s of Business Administration Degree from Averett University and graduated from the Hanover County’s Citizens Planning Academy. With 25 years of communications and public relations experience in private industry and manufacturing, she is self-employed as an industrial marketing consultant.

electricity bills a month, one from Sun Tribe and one from Dominion. Any excess electricity produced in the most active (sunny) months from the system would be sold to Dominion and the benefits credited to HCPS. Traditionally, electricity rates increase about 3% a year, but this plan locks the price paid by HCPS at a onetime rate. “You receive the benefits by purchasing electricity at 2019 rates in years 2030, 2040, etc.,”

Herman said. With government incentives for pilot programs and the purchase of solar panels, Herman said systems across the state are scrambling to take advantage of the current environment. The rate suggested in the contract is 8.7 cents per kilowatt, 17% less than the rate the system is currently paying. There is no capital outlay for HCPS and Sun Tribe owns and is responsible for maintaining the system. “We cover all expenses for this,” he said. “There’s absolutely no cost to the district.”

If the system produces less than anticipated, and the Dominion bill increases, Sun Tribe would reimburse for those shortfalls. “What we’re offering here is cheaper electricity. You want the system to produce 100% of your demand,” Herman said. They also strive to produce 100% of their projections in order for them to pay the debt associated with installing the system. “We have an obligation to repay debt we invested in this system by the electricity you are purchasing from us,” he said. The systems are monitored

to ensure 100% production. “Is there flexibility in the length of the proposal?” asked vice chair Roger Bourassa, Mechanicsville District. Although the number presented relied on a 30-year plan, a 20-year option also is available and board members asked to see numbers for that option. Basically, the shorter the term of the contract, less are the savings. But even with the shortened terms, the savings are significant. The cost per kilowatt hour would be higher under a shortened plan.

Terry Stone, assistant superintendent for Finance, presented savings associated with the differing time scenarios. “When you go to 20 years, the savings is $4.5 million,” Stone said. “They have to recover their costs in a shorter period of time. Their goal is to produce as much energy as they can and sell us as much as they can to ensure that they are also profitable.” The contract also contains an escape clause allowing the school system to withdraw from the arrangement at any time during the life of the con-

Congratulations to county’s top students

Remember to always honor ‘The Patch’

By Melody Kinser Managing Editor

C

arpe diem! Having studied Spanish for three years, that is one of the few Latin phrases with which I am familiar. Seize the day! Today we launch our four-part series recognizing the honor graduates representing Hanover County Public Schools’ four high schools: Atlee, Hanover, Lee-Davis and Patrick Henry. Starting at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 15, members of the Class of 2019 will receive their diplomas in the E.J. Wade Arena of the VCU Stuart Siegel Center at 1200 W. Broad St. in Richmond. The day begins with Patrick Henry

and continues with Atlee at noon, Lee-Davis at 3:30 p.m., and Hanover at 7 p.m. We’re always pleased to share the stories of those students who lead their class as valedictorian and salutatorian. We appreciate the efforts of Chris R. Whitley, HCPS public information officer, in coordinating our coverage, which includes the big day itself. The futures these extraordinary students plan for are impressive as they prove how they achieved their grade point average status and honors through their work in the classroom, as officers and members of school organizations, and contributions to their communities. Motivated and ambitious are obvious words to describe them, but their successes prove much

more as the next chapter of their lives begins. Their dedication and commitment to their own educations, as well as tutoring and mentoring other students, epitomizes the praise heaped upon our county school division. While teachers inspire, so do student leaders -- and these honor graduates certainly merit the accolades and accomplishments they are sharing within these pages today through June 12. This is the day when we offer our “Congratulations!” to the valedictorians and salutatorians. Thank you for exemplifying what students can and should be as they map out their lives’ direction. Be proud. Enjoy your day. Look ahead. Seize the day!

The story of a mother’s love is one that endures By Jim Ridolphi Contributing Columnist As I entered the gates at Fort Lee, I had a feeling of uncertainty, the type you get when you are preparing to do something that you really don’t want to. I was interviewing a soldier who was retiring after a storied career as a medic in the U.S. Army, and I anticipated a long narrative of battlefield memories and stories of survival.

And this guy had seen all of those things, but he was much too humble to mention any of them as we talked about his many tours of duty. He had seen men die in his arms, and suffered through some unthinkable horrors in unspeakable situations. “When they know they are not going to make it, they call for their mothers,” he said, wiping a tear from his eye. “Their mother?” I replied with some surprise. He explained that, in that moment

of total despair and surrender, battle-hardened heroes call for the one person that had cared for and healed them so many times in the past. That interview took place more than two decades ago when I worked at The Hopewell News, but the soft-spoken medic’s words have stuck with me. They resound with more intensity each year as Mother’s Day approaches, and we offer thanks and appreciation for the many sacrifices made by the ones who bore us.

My mother was forced into a dual role early in my life. When my father died at a young age leaving two small children and a-stay-at-home mom behind, she must have felt like the weight of the world had descended on her. She didn’t shrink in the face of such an enormous challenge, and never shied from her mission to raise us the way my father would have wanted. She was more familiar with the see LOVE, pg. 8

It might only be a piece of cloth with different colored threads but it is an important piece of cloth with a very deep meaning and heritage. I notice different patches on different uniforms and clothing and one particular one is on the uniforms of “Hanover’s Finest”. How often have I heard our deputies say, “Remember The Patch”. Remember the patch because it represents service, it represents caring, it represents character. Each of us has a “patch” whether it is visible or not. We represent it by our words and deeds. It represents our character, it represents our family and the place we work. When we say “I work for so and so”, we have a patch that we are obligated to respect regardless of our employment. When we fail to “honor the patch” we bring dishonor to ourselves, our family, our place of employment and our community. Let’s us have the character to live a life of honesty, a life of commitment to helping others in need, a commitment to using today to make tomorrow better for the world. Yes, Hanover’s Finest, how much better off Hanover County would be if we all followed your example. “Remember the patch and always honor it.” Dan Johnson Montpelier

On April 8, 2019, Virginia Natural Gas, Inc. (“VNG” or “Company”) filed an application (“Application”) with the State Corporation Commission (“Commission”) pursuant to § 56-603 et seq. of Chapter 26 of Title 56 of the Code of Virginia, the Steps to Advance Virginia’s Energy Plan (“SAVE”) Act, and 5 VAC 5-20-80 of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure. The Company filed this request pursuant to the SAVE Act, seeking approval to implement a SAVE plan (“Plan”) and an associated rider (SAVE “Rider” or “Rider”) (collectively referred to herein as “ SAVE Phase 3”), to recover the necessary costs associated with the implementation of the Plan. The Company’s proposed SAVE Phase 3 Plan contains amendments to items previously approved under its currently effective SAVE Plan (“SAVE Phase 2”), along with additional expenditures for improvements that were developed through the Company’s distribution integrity management program process that occurred post SAVE Phase 2 approval. The Company states that the SAVE Phase 3 Plan is designed to facilitate the cumulative replacement of approximately $370 million of eligible natural gas infrastructure through the year 2024, with the SAVE Rider commencing September 1, 2019. Included in this replacement schedule are: Aldyl-A and other plastic pipe installed prior to 1985, cast and wrought iron main, bare and ineffectively coated steel mains installed prior to 1971, bare and ineffectively coated steel service lines installed prior to 1971, and copper. VNG’s 2019 SAVE Phase 3 Rider will consist of two factors: (1) an Annual SAVE Factor (“ASF”), to become effective with the first billing cycle in September 2019; and (2) a SAVE Actual Cost Adjustment (“SACA”) that will include any over- or under-recovered revenue from the prior year’s ASF and be adjusted for the carrying cost on the over- or under-recovered position. Per the Company, the SACA will also include a crediting mechanism that ensures SAVE Phase 3 eligible costs remain “…separate from and in addition to all other costs VNG is permitted to recover…” The Company states that its SAVE Phase 3 eligible plan investment will have a six-year term, with a 2019 currently- approved Plan increase from $35 million to $40 million, and Plan extension for an additional five years, until 2024. In addition, proposed investments are requested in the amounts of $50 million in 2020, $60 million in 2021, and $70 million in 20222024, for a total six-year capped investment of $370 million. The Company has requested the Commission grant “…up to a $6 million variance in 2019, $8 million variance in 2020, a $9 million variance in 2021, and a $10 million variance in each year from 2022-2024, with a total program variance of up to $10 million.” Per VNG, the SAVE Phase 3 Plan and Rider will increase customers’ bills through a monthly fixed fee (which varies by rate schedule) with residential customers paying $2.68 per month (2019-2020). Each year’s total revenue requirement will be allocated on a prospective basis, which VNG states will “…ensure customers of declining or growing rate schedules do not bear proportionately more or less of the overall revenue burden…” TAKE NOTICE that the Commission may adopt rates that differ from those appearing in the Company’s Application and supporting documents and may apportion revenues among customer classes and/or design rates in a manner differing from that shown in the Application and supporting documents. The details of these and other proposals are set forth in the Company’s Application. Interested persons are encouraged to review the Company’s Application and supporting exhibits for the details of these proposals. The Commission entered an Order for Notice and Comment that, among other things, directed the Company to provide notice to the public and provided interested persons an opportunity to comment on the Company’s Application.

needs of my sister, and attending dance recitals or school plays to see her perform seemed much more comfortable than attending a Boy Scout function or Little League game with me. I can recall many functions where boys showed up with their fathers, and I arrived accompanied by my mother. Even more challenging was fielding questions from a young boy searching for answers in a world that seemed confusing after my father died. Queries most times reserved for man-to-man discussions were routine questions, and the answers most guys got from their fathers I received from my mother. She also provided that swift kick in the rear end that boys often need, often tempered with the soothing shoulder that only a mother can provide.

On her final day on this earth, I hurried to the bakery to get my sister a birthday cake on my way to the hospital. Somehow, every minute seemed important, and the long line of customers moved more slowly than usual. When I arrived at my mother’s bedside, my sister rushed up to me and said, “She’s been asking for you.” I grasped her hand as she tried to speak. “Don’t try to talk, just relax.” Now, I’ve often wondered what those final words might have been, but I have a confident hunch it might have been a final lesson in life, one thing maybe she had forgotten to instill in all those years of single parenting. With enormous effort, she took her other hand and placed it on top of mine, and looked at me and smiled. Minutes later, she was gone. As I sat in that hospital

room beside her bed long after she had left this earth, I looked at the woman who had been both mother and father to me and thought of the sacrifices, the selfless hours, the uncomfortable moments associated with raising a teenage boy and the infinite amount of patience displayed by this amazing mother who taught me how to be a man. The words of that medic have never left me, and, somehow, it seems totally fitting that the first face in a man’s life is also the last one he seeks when the end comes. It’s also the reason we pay homage to the women who raised us on this important day of recognition. Simply put, it’s called a Mother’s Love.

Running at-large laws in county apply until June 30 HANOVER -- Every year, from April 1 through June 30, it is unlawful for dogs anywhere in Hanover County to be running off their property without being leashed. The county’s “leash law” applies throughout the year in the suburban area. Between April 1 and June 30, it is extended to the rural areas as well because the births of vulnerable livestock, such as baby lambs and calves, tend to take place during this period. Wildlife activity and rabies cases also generally increase in the April 1-June 30 time frame.

Any dogs caught running off their owner’s property will be impounded. Impoundment fees are $25 for the first violation and an additional $10 for each subsequent violation within a 12-month period including a $5 per day boarding fee. Violations also can result in uniform summons or a written warning being issued. Each instance of a dog belonging to a particular owner running at-large is a separate violation, and an additional penalty will apply regardless of whether or not the same dog is involved.

If you see a dog running at large, call Hanover County Emergency Communications at 804-365-6140. Any dangerous animal can be reported by dialing 911 for immediate assistance, 24/7. For more information about Hanover County’s running atlarge laws, call Animal Control at 365-6485. Dogs cannot run off of their owner’s property at any time of year without a current county license tag affixed to their collar. Information submitted by Tom Harris, Hanover County public information officer.

Discount for Virginians riding Amtrak within state RICHMOND - Beginning Tuesday, April 30, the Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT) is rolling out the Virginia Anytime Fare allowing Virginians to receive 15% off Amtrak travel within Virginia and Washington D.C. Customers will be able to book any time, on any Northeast Regional train, using the promo code V552. The Northeast Regional provides daily service within Virginia originating from Norfolk, Newport News, Richmond, and Roanoke. This new in-state discount

reinforces DRPT’s mission to facilitate and improve mobility of its citizens. “The Commonwealth is proud to offer the Virginia Anytime Fare to our passenger rail customers in Virginia,” said DRPT Director Jennifer Mitchell. “We know how much our citizens enjoy taking the train, which is why creating a discount solely for Virginians and rewarding train travel within the state is important to DRPT. This discount is for Virginia. From Virginia.” With the new Virginia

Anytime Fare taking effect in time for summer and holiday vacations, Virginians now have the perfect excuse to skip traffic congestion and discover a new favorite Virginia destination on the train. And as a reminder, early planners are able to receive an even better deal. When booking at least 14 days in advance, travelers can save up to 25% with the Saver Fare.

Hoehl swears in 8 as CASA volunteers HANOVER -- Hanover County’s newest class of Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) recently was sworn in by Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court Judge Shannon O. Hoehl. The newest CASA members are Mollie Anderson, Cheryl Collie, Paula Dove,

Betsy Farley, Sandy Flick, Pam Flippin, Andrea Jones and Nellie League. CASA volunteers advocate for the interests of abused and neglected children who are involved in cases being heard by the Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court. Last year, 32 children were served by 15 volunteers who contributed nearly 1,100 hours. “It literally is the first report I look at when I review one of these cases,” Judge Hoehl told the graduates, who added the CASA reports make it “much

easier for me to understand what is going on in the life of the child you are serving.” Judge Hoehl asked the family members of the new CASA volunteers in attendance to “give them an extra hug at night, because what they are doing is very hard work and very important.” The volunteers also were thanked by Jim Taylor, deputy dounty administrator, and Melanie Baker, CASA program coordinator. Each new CASA volunteer received about 43 hours of

intensive, specialized training that will enable them to speak for children and seek the best outcome for them. They also receive about 12 hours of in-service training a year. For more information about Hanover’s CASA program, call Melanie Baker, coordinator, at 804-365-4296 or e-mail her at mdbaker@ hanovercounty.gov.

County: Don’t place signs in VDOT right-of-way HANOVER – Residents are reminded that it is illegal to place signs within the Virginia Department of Transportation’s right-of-way and that violations of this law can result in fines. The VDOT right-of-way typically includes median strips, utility poles, street signs

and the area between the road and ditch line. Hanover County actively enforces this state law throughout the county, and violators can be assessed a $100 fine per illegal sign. Signs illegally placed on private property also are subject to civil penalties. David Maloney, director of

Planning, said his office continues to receive complaints about illegally placed signs over the years and has assessed a number of fines. “A majority of these illegal signs are constructed of inexpensive materials and they remain within the public rightsee VDOT, pg. 13

of-way or on private property and are neglected,” Maloney added. “They are very unsightly and become a form of litter.” He also said that signs within the public right-of-way present many nuisances and dangers to motorists. “They become visual dis-

tractions to drivers and they can block sight lines, especially at intersections and driveways,” Maloney said. “The county’s goals are to keep our county beautiful and achieve compliance with state sign laws,” Maloney added. “We do not have a goal of collecting fines, but we will do so where necessary to discourage businesses and individuals

The training will consist of a variety of law enforcement topics, as well as proactive crime prevention presentations, which will give citizens a better understanding of what members of the Sheriff ’s Office do on a daily basis. The goal of the academy is to foster productive relationships with citizens in our community and for them to develop

from posting illegal signs.” In an effort to enforce the regulations, the zoning enforcement staff periodically performs sweeps of the county’s roads to remove illegally placed signs with the right-ofway, and notify property owners of illegal signs placed on private property.

Properly disposing of American flags can be difficult With Memorial Day and Flag Day coming up, and the Fourth of July just around the corner, Woody and Nelsen Funeral Homes are once again

offering families the opportunity to exchange their old, torn or soiled American flag for a new 3’ by 5’ flag. In exchange, your retired flag will be given proper disposal in accordance with the U.S. Flag Code. Bernie Henderson, chief executive officer of Nelsen and see FLAG, pg. 15

Woody Funeral Homes, said the five Woody and Nelsen Funeral Home locations in the Richmond area are offering the free flag exchange as a service to the community. “Many people are unaware or confused about the proper way to dispose of an old American Flag,� Henderson said. He referred to the Flag Code of the United States, which suggests that the flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem of display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning. Today nearly 90 years since the Flag Code was originally written there are localities that

have laws prohibiting burning. Moreover, the fabrics used to make flags are now mostly synthetic fabrics and have the potential of giving off toxic fumes when burned. “Disposing of a used American Flag in the proper way is not as easy as it sounds,� he said. Last year, the Nelsensponsored flag exchange resulted in over 600 used flags returned to Nelsen Funeral Home locations and exchanged for new flags. The returned flags were delivered to the Virginia War Memorial for proper disposal. Henderson said you can stop by any of the Woody or Nelsen Funeral Home locations listed below to exchange your old flag for a new one. The

Theatre honored for preservation efforts in revival Art McKinney stewardship award to be presented for improvements Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com

A

SHLAND – The Ashland Museum and the Ashland Main Street Association (AMSA) are proud to announce that the Ashland Theatre will be the third recipient of the Art McKinney Historic Preservation Stewardship Award. The award honors business and property owners who have demonstrated good stewardship of historic struc-

tures by rehabilitating them for continued commercial use. It is named for Art McKinney, who purchased the former D.B. Cox Department Store and restored it to host his engineering firm and the Iron Horse restaurant at 100 S. Railroad Ave. At the 100th anniversary of the D.B. Cox building in 2013, McKinney talked about his efforts to be a “good steward” of historic buildings and his desire to “leave things a little bit better than I found them.” McKinney passed away in 2016.

Then and now . . . The Ashland Theatre is shown on its original opening day on Aug. 10, 1948, in this vintage photo shared courtesy of Jennifer Chambers. The more recent photo, also submitted by Chambers, shows the newly-renovated theatre, which is fast becoming a favorite venue for entertainment.

Jake’s Place and Sweet Frog were previous recipients of the Art McKinney Historic Stewardship Award.

“We wanted to pay tribute to a wonderful business owner who is a great role model for other owners of historic build-

ings,” said Betsy Hodges of the Ashland Museum. “The Ashland Theatre is a worthy recipient of the Art McKinney award because the current owner and operator, the Town of Ashland and the Ashland

Theatre Foundation, have made significant improvements to the historic structure.” The Art McKinney see THEATRE, pg. 17

England St. was first opened in 1948 and continued to operate as a movie theater until 1996. It was purchased by local developer A.D. Whitaker who made some initial restorations and generously gave the building to the Town of Ashland in 2013. The Main Street Economic Development Committee reopened the theater in “popup mode� in November 2014, while the Town of Ashland worked to secure a $500,000 Industrial Revitalization Fund Grant from the state to help with renovation expenses. Town Council voted in 2016 to give operational responsibility to the nonprofit

Ashland Theatre Foundation, which coordinated with the town to make extensive improvements to the building. The Ashland Theatre reopened in December 2018 to extensive public acclaim. Main Street President Lorie Foley noted that “the Ashland Theatre is beautifully restored and hosts a wide variety of performances including first-run film screenings, live music, and community events. We are proud to bestow the Art McKinney Award on the newly renovated Ashland Theatre.� For more information about the Ashland Main

ed to the complaint with a letter to all parents alerting them of the incident and explaining the county’s policy on controversial or sensitive material. That policy has been revised in recent years, but basically requires teachers to obtain pre-approval for supplementary lessons or materials that might be controversial or considered sensitive from the principal or a designee. If the lesson is approved, a letter is sent to parents making them aware of the impending presentation and allowing their children to opt for alternative assignments. The child’s mother cited religious reasons for her concern and stated that some of the artwork in the book confused her daughter. Hanover County Public Schools officials issued no opinion regarding the book, but the letter indicated the

county’s policy was not followed in this case. “In this case, the book, which tells the story of the rainbow flag becoming a symbol of equality for the LGBT community, was not vetted through the appropriate process at our school,” Keck wrote in the March 31 letter. “It is also not a part of our curriculum.” The letter also noted that parents were not pre-notified of the lesson as required by the policy. But some parents who also have children enrolled in the class objected to the sensitive or controversial label being applied to this selection, and they took advantage of a public comment period at last week’s Hanover County School Board meeting to express their concerns. Colleen Berry, the parent of a Hanover County graduate and one child still in the public school division, asked why the book in question would see BOOK, pg. 24 


Supervisors OK budget $492.1 mil aids public safety, education and hikes pay By Jim Ridolphi for The Mechanicsville Local HANOVER -- After a long and detailed process that began in January, it almost seemed anti-climactic when the Hanover County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the FY20 proposed budget without dissent or discussion at last week’s regular meeting. The now approved $492.1 million budget continues the county’s trend of strengthening public safety and education while providing a 3% salary increase for county employees. A strong economy with increased sales and personal property tax revenues, combined with bolstered real estate assessments, fueled the 6% increase over this year’s budget, and there are no increases

in local real estate taxes included in the approved budget. Seven new deputies and one court services specialist are included in the approved budget, as well as six new FireEMS positions are approved, allowing full-time staffing at the Ashland station. Supervisors also approved a 2020-24 Capital Improvement Plan totaling $262.5 million over the next five years. Capital projects in this year’s budget include a new terminal at the airport, a new burn building for Fire-EMS training and new air packs for firefighters. Supervisors seemed more willing to talk when it came to a resolution providing raises for board members for the next four years. State law forbids sitting

boards from providing raises for themselves, but allows increases for future boards when they are seated. “As you are aware, the Commonwealth of Virginia does not allow sitting boards to modify their salaries with pay raises for the term for which they are serving,� County Administrator Rhu Harris said. “That presents us with the problem of trying to address any of those potential items prior to the upcoming election.� Those adjustments must be made by July 1. Hanover County supervisors currently make $27,060 annually, with an additional $2,000 additional stipend for the chairman. The county administrator said that’s not the highest

in the region, or the lowest. Richmond Council members earn $25,000 annually, while Chesterfield supervisors earn $37,008. Supervisors in Henrico County receive $55,819 annually. Harris proposed a 2% raise for each of the upcoming four years, amounting to about a $600 increase annually. Chairman Canova Peterson

asked if the board had options pertaining to the raise, or an option to reject the increases. “The board has declined in years that the staff did not receive any raises, or has declined to a lower amount if the play raise was less than 2%,� Harris saidd. “They have that flexibility on a year-byyear basis — to implement the 2% raise or not implement it.�

Cold Harbor supervisor Scott Wyatt is not running for re-election on the board so the raise would not affect his salary. But, he expressed resistance regarding the proposed increases in supervisor compensation. “When I began serving the Cold Harbor District, I truly got into it to serve the commusee BUDGET, pg. 20

Officials break ground on new Atlee library site By Jim Ridolphi for The Mechanicsville Local MECHANICSVILLE -- It’s been a long time coming but the finish line is clearly in sight for a much-anticipated project. Hanover County officials, Pamunkey Regional Library administration, and Friends of the Atlee Library gathered last Wednesday afternoon at the site of the new Atlee Library for a groundbreaking ceremony. The start of that construction is the culmination of years of dedicated work by a committed group of supporters of the new facility. First approved in 2008, the project fell victim to a downturned economy and the project was delayed. The renewed efforts were spearheaded by a $1 million donation from the Pamunkey Regional Library for the design phase of the project. Canova Peterson, chairman of the Hanover County Board of Supervisors, welcomed supporters of the new

library, and told the audience the Atlee Library in its current location is the second busiest library in the county. Angela Kelly-Wiecek, Chickahominy District supervisor, was instrumental in supporting funding for the new library and said the site at U.S. 301 and Rutlandshire Drive is the perfect setting for the facility. She said the scenic property not only provides the perfect setting for library users, but also anchors a commercial hub that should become the “centerpiece” of the community. Kelly-Wiecek thanked the Friends of the Atlee Library, the Pamunkey Regional Library Board, and the Timberlake family. “As many of you know, Don Timberlake . . . left a bequest for the library,” she said. That bequest will allow the library to tell the story of Carrie Crenshaw, one of the original residents of the Rutland Farm. Crenshaw was a woman

well ahead of her time, serving as a professor and traveling the world and bringing “that knowledge back to her community.” A center at the library will be named in her honor. The two-story structure will feature a reading garden, study centers, collaborative spaces, and a dedicated student and children’s area. “We have designed this library with the community in mind,” Kelly-Wiecek told the gathering. She acknowledged the efforts of the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office in assisting to ensure the library is safe and designed to serve community needs. Joe O’Connor, chairman of the Pamunkey Regional Library, reminded the crowd that a wealth of resources is available at the library and at a bargain price. “I would like to remind everyone that library cards are free,” he said. “You can just go to the library and get one.”

his role in opening the current Atlee Library in the early 1990s, recognizing the growing needs of a community. “With an extensive community process that gathered a great deal of community input and considered a great number of constituencies, the new Atlee Library was designed with our community in mind and with the ever-changing

and ever-important role our libraries play,” Kelly-Wiecek said after the ceremony. Once funding for the library was restored, the project was moved up by a year. “We were even able to bring this to fruition a year earlier for the benefit of our residents,” Kelly-Wiecek said.

Rotary honors essay winners

VFW Post #9501 to present Veterans Memorial Service Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com

Photo submitted by Janice Henicheck

Students who captured first, second and third place in the Hanover Rotary Club’s essay contest recently were recognized with a celebratory dinner at Roma’s Restaurant in Mechanicsville. The winners read their winning entries and received certificates of achievement and monetary awards from the Hanover Rotary Club. Several local businesses provided “goodies” for the students’ achievements. Also taking part in the event were the winners’ parents and teachers. Shown are, from left, Jada Davis, first place, Battlefield Park Elementary School; Alli Lynch, second place, Pearsons Corner Elementary School; and Jamya Drew, third place, Battlefield Park Elementary.

KING WILLIAM -- The annual VFW Post #9501 Veterans Memorial Service will get underway at 3 p.m. on Sunday, May 26, at the VFW Building on Route 30, four miles north of Route 360 at Central Garage in King William, Virginia. This year’s primary speaker will be Caroline County resident Scott Moser, chief deputy sheriff for the Caroline County Sheriff's Department. There also will be two local youth speakers: Jesse J. Sanchez, a senior at King William High School, who won the VFW Post #9501 “Voice of Democracy” essay, as well as being named the Third Place District winner, and

Alphonso Edwards III, a sixthgrader at Hamilton Holmes Middle School, the “Patriot’s Pen” winner. An invocation and the benediction will be delivered by Minister Helen M. Zottoli of the Epworth United Methodist Church in Aylett. VFW Post Commander James Brown will introduce special guests and make presentations along with VFW Auxiliary President Frances Gwathmey and Gladys Hickman, past president. The National Anthem and closing selection will be led by Melissa Hauser of King William County. King & Queen and King William Schools' JROTC units have been invited and are scheduled to participate. In addition, special presentations will be made to recognize a Teacher of the year from one of the participating counties and selective students who are scholarship winners. Colleen Williams and Cecelia Johnson will be “reading the names” inscribed on the park’s memorial stones.

Also, Cheryl Vessels will provide the bell chiming for each called name. The “names” (over 200 currently inscribed) include veterans from Caroline, Essex, Hanover, King & Queen and King William counties. These counties, on a rotational basis, have each had primary speakers since 1999. And, as in the past, the VFW Auxiliary will provide refreshments at the end of the service. For more information, contact Percy Pollard, program chair, at 804-769-2222. “This is our 21th year, and the theme is "Character Matters" in recognition of what our speaker's role is with the sheriff's department. He has an extensive background in law enforcement and community service,” Pollard said. “The extended community committee representing the VFW, and other residents have established a legacy in conducting this service,” he added. “We are very thankful for all the local contributors who have support us through the years.”

R-MC headed to softball World Series Whittemore pitches 21 innings to lead Yellow Jackets to first D-III super-regional title

Dave Lawrence/The Local

Randolph-Macon’s Candace Whittemore gets around for a single in the fourth inning of the Yellow Jackets’ first 4-3 win over Christopher Newport in their NCAA Division III super-regional Saturday.

By Dave Lawrence Sports Editor NEWPORT NEWS – As of two weeks ago, RandolphMacon’s softball team had never won an NCAA Division III regional. They fixed that. As of last weekend, the Yellow Jackets had never advanced to the D-III

softball World Series. Thanks to some timely hitting throughout the lineup and a gutsy pitching effort by Candace Whittemore, they fixed that, too. After dropping an 8-3 contest to host Christopher Newport in their super-regional opener Friday, the Yellow Jackets rallied, taking two from

the Captains Saturday to stun their hosts and earn the right to head to the University of TexasTyler for the World Series. Whittemore had pitched six innings in Friday’s loss to Christopher Newport, which was the home team in game one. She was supposed to just be designated player in game

two Saturday afternoon, but Ali Celiberti, who was supposed to be in the circle that game, was injured in a freak throw-around accident before the game and had to leave early in the first inning. Whittemore came in, pitching eight innings in that game before scoring on a Shelby Hill single in the bottom of the

eighth to force a winner-take-all game. Whittemore (Patrick Henry) then stepped in the circle again for the decider, holding on despite giving up a three-run home run in the bottom of the seventh for a 4-3 win. She pitched 21 innings in 24 hours. “I’m a little sore, but that’s all

right,” she said Saturday night. “It’s worth it. … It feels great! It’s awesome!” Of the more than 400 Division III softball teams in the country, the Yellow Jackets join seven other teams in the World Series: Emory, Saint

Hanover sweeps Region 4B tennis titles coach Lindsey Wyeth Hein. “Four, five and six have kind of been – at least the four and five – have been watching from the sidelines the past year and I think they have gained a lot of knowledge doing that. They knew what it took and they knew the hard work that had to be put in. They’ve put it in and they’ve come through phenomenally.” For Hanover No. 2 Madison Moore, who has been a part of the past two Hawk championship teams, she’s hoping to win out as her senior season comes to an end. “It’s my last year. It’s pretty sad,” she said. “We’ve got to win it – make the last one count.”

By Dave Lawrence and Rob Witham Mechanicsville Local MECHANICSVILLE – Hanover’s boys tennis team got to the state final last year, but finished just short of a state title. While being a state runner-up is quite an accomplishment, it’s not as good as finishing a champion, and the Hawks are working hard to amend that situation. They made a bold claim to improve their status with a sweep of visiting Powhatan in the Region 4B championships Friday. For a team that has repeatedly reached the region finals and finished runner-up, leaving the court with a championship trophy felt good. “It does feel very, very good, especially for our group of seniors that we have,” said Hanover head coach Bill Wheaton. “Ross has been out here. He’s gone about as far as he can go without getting and actual trophy of any kind, so he’s on cloud nine. And all the young guys – this is their first real success. They’ve won something for sure, and they can say they are champions of the region.” Violi, a 6-1, 6-1 winner over Powhatan No. 1 Brendan Pfab, was feeling pretty good afterward. “It feels good. I mean, I like winning,” Violi said. “We’re in states no matter what, so it didn’t really matter to get us farther in the tournament, but it feels good. It feels good to finally win it.” The top-seeded Hawks proved a buzzsaw against the seventh-seeded Indians, who had to defeat second-seed Courtland and third-seed Patrick Henry to reach the region final and earn their first bid to the state tournament.

beat Jacob Pfab 6-3, 6-3. Hawk Charles Adams won the No. 3 match against Ryan Steinruck 6-1, 6-1. Hanover’s James Woolard defeated Ben Wojcicki 6-1, 6-3 in the No. 5 match and Hawk Noah Cole beat Michael Washburn 6-0, 6-3 in the No. 6 match. Despite the sweep Friday, Powhatan head coach Lee Kelley had no complaints. “Every coach wishes to get

the best out of their players. This was their best,” he said. “During the training, we could see it. We could see the improvement over and over and over. We could just see it on a weekly basis. So I’m happy. I’m thrilled.” The boys weren’t the Hawks’ only championship team Friday. The Hanover girls tennis team began the day with a sweep of their own of visiting Courtland to earn their third straight

region championship. They hope to continue that streak in the Class 4 state tournament as they make a bid for their third straight state title. They won in dominating fashion, winning four of five matches in straight sets and dropping just two sets in the other win. The victors were Raine Weis at No. 1, Madison Moore at No. 2, Georgia Temple at No. 3, Nina Violi at No. 5 and

Kaylee Moore at No. 6. The Hawk lineup featured three veterans in the top three positions and three varsity newcomers – including a freshman, Kaylee Moore, at No. 6 – in the other three. But even the newcomers had a chance to prepare from the sidelines. “I knew my one, two and three, that they could do it because they had been there and done it,” said Hanover head

Hawks sweep Midlo MECHANICSVILLE – There is nothing flashy about Hanover Hawks tennis, especially when the postseason begins. They’ve been there and understand it fully. With Region 4B rival Midlothian coming north to face Hanover in Thursday’s boys and girls region team semifinals, the Hawks approached the critical matches with businesslike precision. A victory clinches a return to the Class 4 state championship tournament. A loss ends a season. The boys took the court first, grabbing first set victories in five matches quickly, then built upon them to take a 5-0 victory over the Trojans that sent the Hawks to both a regional final and, in two weeks, a state quarterfinal. Strangely, it was Hanover’s first meeting with a traditional rival in Midlothian – they did not meet in the regular season. Hanover’s top seed Ross Violi said the team had some information on their opposee TENNIS, pg. 30 


Lamb leads Confederates to Region 5B top seed By Rob Witham For the Mechanicsville Local MECHANICSVILLE – Losing the majority of their offense to graduation, the big question mark for Lee-Davis softball entering 2019 was simply, who would score the necessary runs? While the Confederates continue to work out that question, they’ve used the excellent pitching of Savanah Henley and top-notch defense to earn a 16-3 record and the top seed in the Class 5, Region B tournament which begins Friday. It was the formula to their final regular season triumph, a 1-0 nail-biter at home over rival Patrick Henry, their second win over the Patriots in just over 48 hours after survived a nine-inning, 5-2 win in Ashland two nights earlier. Through it all, a quiet, unassuming senior, who didn’t play at all a year ago, and who’s overcome more than most to simply be on the field and play the game she loves, has provided the senior leadership and, more

Thomas (Minnesota), Eastern Connecticut State, Texas Lutheran, Williams, Illinois Wesleyan and Trine. RandolphMacon’s first opponent in the double-elimination tournament is a familiar foe – Emory. They will meet Thursday at 7:30 p.m. “At the beginning of the season we didn’t think we would be where we are now, but we worked hard,” Whittemore said. Randolph-Macon head coach Kevin Proffitt had included Whittemore in the planning for Saturday.

Corrective measures were taken, and Lamb was enjoying a season playing travel softball her eighth grade year when an opponent slid into her knee. Later, she stepped on a base awkwardly affecting a screw. Subsequent seasons became a battle just to play. As her teammates advanced to the 2018 Class 5 state semifinal against Prince George last June, Lamb could only watch. With just one more chance to play for her school, Lamb made her decision. “I played field hockey (last fall), then thought, you know what, it’s senior year, I’m going to go after it and do my best,” Lamb said. “I can’t complain if I strike out here or there because of the year off. My outcome this season has been pretty decent.” Whether compiling putouts at first from fellow senior, shortstop Lauren Taylor, or underclassmen Kiley Lamberth and Leanna Bartrug, a fresh-

men who has played solidly at third base during the absence of regular second baseman Carlee Harding, forcing Lamberth, also a freshman, to second, or adding a few words in conversations inside the circle, Scoots has gained the utmost respect from her teammates, and her coaches. “Being here this year and play her senior season and with her teammates is huge,” LeeDavis head coach Jackie Davis explained. “She’s always making sure everything is done, helps out her teammates, does whatever she has to do. She’s a quiet leader.” Lamb and her teammates matured quickly this season thanks to one of the toughest regular season slates in the area. Once again, Henley sparked the Lee-Davis offense Friday with a fourth inning double. Courtesy runner Sheridan Lambert scored on a Lamberth single to provide the game’s only run. Blair Rhodes had both of Patrick Henry’s hits in the contest, and was stranded at

No one expected that to happen before the game even got started. “It couldn’t have worked out any better. She’s been ridiculous for four years and she was able to finish it off,” Proffitt said. “She made the one mistake in the last inning, but she – in typical Candace fashion – she kind of took a deep breath and got herself together and knocked out the nine, one and two hitters and we were good to go.” Christopher Newport was home team for the winner-takeall game. Randolph-Macon had a 4-0 lead going into the seventh. Whittemore was pitching her 15th inning of the day. She started by giving up a double to the Captains’ Caitlin Abernathy,

then walking Emerald Cheesbrew. Then pinch hitter Krista Jasak stepped up to the plate. Whittemore served Jasak a changeup – put the ball where she was aiming, she said – but Jasak did what a good hitter does, making contact and driving the ball over the left-center field fence to make it 4-3. Christopher Newport’s elation did not last long, however. Whittemore struck out pinch hitter Calah Savage, dealt a groundouit to Maddie Hool and got Grace Wild to pop up to shortstop for the win. For her efforts, Whittemore was named Newport News

Hanover girls handed loss by Monacan By Rob Witham For the Mechanicsville Local MECHANICSVILLE – Maybe it was simply an off night. Maybe they were caught looking ahead to the postseason. Either way, the Hanover Hawks ran into a more opportunistic, more hungry team in the form of the Monacan Chiefs Thursday night, losing their regular season finale 2-1 in a match where Monacan had fewer shots than Hanover, but cashed in when it mattered. “Our challenges were soft. We could’ve gotten to the ball quicker,” said Hawks head coach Manny Tavares. “Obviously, their second goal was scored because of not getting to the ball.” That tally was from an aggressive Emily Wells, who found an opportunity and seized upon it, scoring in the 63rd minute to retake the lead for Monacan (10-3-1). Just eight minutes earlier, off, arguably, the best Hanover

Super Regional Pitcher of the Tournament. Hill, who hit the game-winner in game two, was named Newport News Super Regional Player of the Tournament. The Mechanicsville resident finished 5-of-9 for a run and two RBI. Celiberti hit a two-run home run in the opening loss to Christopher Newport – also driving in Whittemore. Brittany LaPrade hit a double with one RBI in that game, and Kerstin Roth had a sacrifice. In the second game, Savannah Wood, Kaitlyn Deeter and Sami Davidson also knocked in Yellow Jacket runs, with Wood connecting on a sacrifice fly, and Davidson and

The super-regional win had Proffitt busier than ever on a Sunday, coordinating communications with the team and paperwork with the NCAA in preparation for the upcoming World Series. “I’m sending out emails to the girls giving them information and I’m getting more emails giving me more information I have to pass on to them. It’s been kind of crazy,” he said. “But it’s fine. It’s a good crazy.” Dave Lawrence can be reached at dlawrence@mechlocal.com.

of the work, limiting true shot opportunities. The other key to the Monacan win was their defensive work on Hanover senior standout Rachel Andrzejewski. She was limited in the first half, and, despite plans drawn up at halftime by Tavares and his staff, her impact in the second half, to their frustration, was even less.

“[The second half] was our own fault,” Tavares explained. “At halftime, we told them they were focusing on Rachel, but we kept feeding Rachel. We should have kept the ball to the outside. If you move the ball to the outside, you eliminate what they’re trying to do.” A bright spot was the work in goal of Tallulah Miller for Hanover, who, several times, ensured the deficit stayed at one late, hoping her teammates could find the equalizer. They did not, and now, entering the Class 4, Region B playoffs at 13-1-2, Tavares is hopeful its response to the regular season’s only hiccup will produce a long, fruitful postseason run. “One loss does not make a season,” Tavares noted. “These girls are fantastic and deserve their ranking. They know what they need to do.”

third base due to a great play by Bartrug on a low liner she snared before it went into left field. Atlee holds off Patriots MECHANICSVILLE – Atlee took an early lead and, with the help of a two-run sixth inning, held off visiting Patrick Henry 4-2 in a make-up baseball game Thursday night. Both of the Raiders’ sixthinning runs came with two outs. After a pair of walks to Joey Turner and Tucker Bratton, Turner stole third then scored on a wild pitch to give Atlee the go-ahead run. Bratton move to third on the wild pitch. Zack Beach walked, then Bratton scored on an error. Patriot mistakes proved costly in the first inning, too. Atlee leadoff batter Jayce Catterton reached on a dropped

third strike, moved to second on a Bratton sacrifice that was mishandled by the Patriot defense, moved to third on defensive indifference, and scored on a Beach groundout. The Raiders added another run in the fourth, opening their part of the inning with three straight singles to Eric Haynes, Gavin Bralley and Turner to load the bases. One out later, Haynes scored on a sacrifice fly by Bratton. Patrick Henry got on the scoreboard in the fifth inning. With one out, Seth Keller walked, moved to third on a single by Timmy Matthews, and scored on a groundout by Eoin Rossman. The Patriots scored the final run of the game in the seventh inning. Mathews reached first and advanced to second on an error, advanced to third on a passed ball, and scored on a Cameron Reed sacrifice fly. Rob Witham can be reached at sports@mechlocal.com.

nents, but seeing players in past seasons also plays a role in preparation. “I knew their No. 1 was Jack (Williams), but I didn’t know who else would be in their top

six,” Violi, last year’s No. 2 for Hanover, said. “We had some good competition. Some of the drop shots were good today. Usually, it’s not the best.” Violi’s 7-5, 6-4 win in a battle of seniors was one of the last to go final. Charles Adams, James Woolard, Carson Brooks and Noah Cole, all sophomores or

freshmen, each won in straight sets. The ladies followed suit, clinching a Class 4 state tournament bid in their quest for their third consecutive state title with a 5-0 sweep of Midlothian. Top-seed Raine Weis defeated Lily Anderson 6-0, 6-0 in a 30-minute-long match, while

senior Georgia Temple dominated Navilia Gottipati 6-0, 6-2. In five straight set victories, the Hawks only lost ten games to improve to 15-0. Rob Witham can be reached at sports@mechlocal.com. Dave Lawrence can be reached at dlawrence@mechlocal.com.

Spanish and French students need host families Host families are needed for students from Spain and France, ages 13 to 17, for three to four weeks this summer. As hosts, families have the opportunity to learn about the students’ cultures while he or she learns about living in an American family. The students are coming to practice their English and be a part of an American family doing what they do and going where they go. In addition to students eating fast food or

shopping at big box stores and malls, there also is the chance to expose them to a holiday meal like Thanksgiving. The students also may cook food from their country. “We have a variety of programs that suit working and non-working families,” local organizer Debbie Hardy said. “You can choose an independent stay program where the students just live with you, or our academic program where they are gone during the work-

day and spend time with families nights and weekends.” According to Hardy, families receive stipends to help with expenses and the students bring spending money for recreation activities. “We can help work out transportation or vacation concerns. This will be a rich experience for your family.” For more information, contact Debbie Hardy at 804-9093190 or debbiehardy2003@ yahoo.com.
