Hanover Patriots introduce 2022 college and trade scholarship winners Contributed Report news@mechocal.com Hanover Patriots, a local service organization committed to bringing about good in our county, recently awarded four scholarships. Two trade scholarships were awarded to Evan Barnes and Claire Hayden, both MHS seniors. Barnes’ volunteer work through his church has reached Haiti and Mexico, and the Patriots loved the work that he has done right here at home volunteering with Positive Dogs at local elementary schools and Hanover County Young Life. Barnes is completing the program at the Hanover Center for Trades and

Technology and working to become a Ford certified technician at Bill Talley Ford. Hayden is currently in the Cosmetology Program at the Hanover Center for Trades & Technology and plans to own her own business. The Patriots appreciated her ambition as well as her years working as a volunteer lacrosse coach with Blackhawk Lacrosse, volunteering at a food pantry, and at the Miss Hanover Abilities pageant. She plans to attend Christopher Newport University to study business and leadership as she continues in her cosmetology career. Two college scholarships went to Nicholas Harrington and Madilyn Dawn Herskovitz.

Harrington of Hanover High is headed to Randolph Macon College to study business administration. His volunteer work includes splitting and stacking firewood to donate, harvesting fruits and vegetables for those in need, as well as community outreach through Young Life and his

church. Herskovitz, an Atlee senior, spends the majority of her free time volunteering with children and teens with disabilities. Through her extensive volunteer work she has discovered her purpose in life and plans to pursue a career as a speech pathologist for special

needs children as she attends Virginia Tech in the fall. The Patriots offered their deepest congratulations to these four outstanding scholarship winners, who will each receive a $1,500 scholarship for tuition, trade school or trade related equipment. “Our heartfelt thanks go out to all of you

who support us throughout the year making these scholarships possible.” Several community events throughout the year such as an annual Easter egg hunt and golf tournament to fund these scholarships. For more information visit https://hanoverpatriotsva.com/.

Honoring the fallen

batch of the flowers and take it to her grave, a sort of continuing apology for the series of Black Labs who destroyed her prize gardens. My parents are buried in Blandford Cemetery in Petersburg, the second largest burial site in Virginia, only eclipsed by Arlington National Cemetery near Washington. On my latest visit, I arrived on a warm spring day to the peace and solitude of the rolling hills of Blandford. It’s always a comforting place that somehow provides respite from a whirlwind of activity just outside its gates. My neighbor provided a brilliant bouquet of peonies for me to leave at the site, and I purchased the single red rose I always place on my father’s tombstone for Memorial Day. I can never visit Blandford, flop down some flowers and leave. As I sit in the family plot, I always gain a new appreciation for my relatives who came before and the insight gained from just reading their tombstones. But only weeks before Memorial Day, I gazed this day over the rolling hills filled with tomb-

By Jim Ridolphi Contributing Columnist My mother loved peonies, and she knew just where to pinch them to obtain the most robust blooms that never drooped. Most of the ones in our yard were carefully transported from my grandmother’s house in Maryland and strategically placed around the borders of our yard. Over the years, the once well-kept beds slowly disappeared, the victims of too many dogs who abused the plants in a variety of fashions. In May, I always find her a nice

stones, each unique and containing its own insight to a life not forgotten. Many of the markers were already adorned with American flags in anticipation of the upcoming remembrance. Soldiers from every American conflict have found final resting places on the hallowed hills of Blandford along with two Virginia governors. The site contains graves from the famous to the infamous. Blandford has a unique connection with the national holiday known as Memorial Day, a solemn remembrance of the men and women who served and died for this country in the armed forces. Petersburg history tells the story this way. Shortly after the Civil War ended, Mary Logan, wife of Union Commander General John A. Logan, observed a group of young school girls placing flowers on the graves of fallen soldiers. When the remembrance was repeated the following year, Logan was so moved that she urged her husband to begin efforts to organize a national holiday.

Now, honestly, there are stories of similar celebrations occurring throughout the nation following the war, but Logan is credited with nationalizing the holiday, and Blandford has always maintained its connection with the holiday. I don’t know how many soldiers are buried in Blandford Cemetery. One single burial site contains the remains of 30,000 Confederate soldiers. And who could even guess how many others who rest here came home from wars in Europe and found their eternal resting place on these quiet hills. One thing became apparently clear as I sat there and enjoyed the warm spring breeze. Those who selflessly served dot landscapes like Blandford all across this nation and around the globe. Their sacrifices should never be forgotten or their commitment to an ideal discounted. On Memorial Day, honoring that dedication to service and willingness to pay the ultimate sacrifice is a small price for us, the beneficiaries of those sacrifices, to pay. The cost for them was much higher.

Residents opposed to restaurant near home adding music Dear Editor, I am representing more than 45 residents of the newly built Lakeview at Luck Farm Neighborhood on the outskirts of Ashland. Our families have built our dream

homes here surrounding the Luck Farm Ponds and lush meadows. What drew us to Luck Farm in particular was the gorgeous natural landscape and focus to preserve the native wildlife and country living. We collectively are saddened and disturbed by the plans recently submitted to the Ashland Town Council to create an outdoor venue for music and entertainment at the proposed Luck Farm Restaurant. This business development of our Rural Neighborhood was news to us and the lack of transparency with our significant home investments is offensive. The thought

of a base beat echoing off the Luck Ponds on many evenings is very upsetting. It defeats the purpose of finding a wonderful place to have quiet enjoyment of our natural surroundings. The glare of more artificial lighting, permanent speakers and loud social gatherings sounds great, but not in my neighborhood. Most local restaurants close at 9 p.m. where this one is slated for 11 p.m. Would you want this venue in your backyard… literally? Proffers need to be very rigid and specific to mitigate all of these concerns. There is no place for a business like this in a neighborhood.

The Farmers Market rendering also seems like a marketing ploy to win over the Town Council and others. It is a Pinterest dream of what “could be” here but is by no means the actual plan. When Ms. Leadbetter, now the proposed land owner, met with our neighbors she shared that her sole interest was in providing a restaurant site for her family’s farm-to-table restaurant but had no plans for a farmer’s market. We see this potential void as a way for another less savory businesses to occupy the entrance to my neighborhood. A Conditional Use Zoning approval would ensure that only the businesses vetted by the Town Council would be allowed. We, the current residents of Section 1 at Luck Farm, are against the rezoning of this property to B-1. With the appropriate proffers in place, we would consider a Conditional Use Zoning approval for this restaurant. Kindest Regards, Lisa Childers Ashland, VA

Peterson recognized each of them individually and said any or all of them would make excellent board members and urged them to seek public service appointments in other areas prior to announcing Johnny Redd as his selection to serve the upcoming four-year term. All eight nominees indicated that they were 100% looking out for all Hanover children, Peterson explained. “All eight of them felt that way and expressed that to me.” Sarah Gragnani-Butler, Paul Heizer, Ryan Hudson, Ryan Martin, Jerry McCormick, Johnny Redd, Kimberly Thurston and outgoing Mechanicsville School Board representative Sterling Daniel were considered for the nomination. Daniel did not attend last week’s announcement, but Peterson acknowledged his service. “I do want to go on the record and say we do appreciate him stepping up and filling the previous term and the work that he has done serving the citizens and the children of this county,” he said.

didates names and a more thorough vetting process with the influx of candidates, the most for any appointed post in recent memory. “As a result, we had more nominees step up for this seat than I think we’ve ever had. I’m

very happy with that,” Peterson said. Peterson cited Redd’s experience and specifically mentioned his previous service on the school board from 1980 to 1984 and a background in business as reasons for his selection of the retired Certified Public Accountant. Peterson described his process of choosing one candidate from such a qualified field as “difficult.” “I’ve looked at it. I’ve looked at it from different angles,” he said. The Mechanicsville supervisor said he based his decision on basic principles like the school system organizational chart that places the citizens of Hanover County in the top

position followed by the school board and the superintendent. After receiving hundreds of emails and other communication, Peterson said the decision hinged on who could best represent the citizens of the Mechanicsville District. “I looked at this and it came down to someone who had concerns for the schools, had been in the schools and had kids in the schools…. and also has the business acumen to realize that they are part of a group who is running a multi-million dollar business, which is our schools,” Peterson said before announcing Redd’s appointment. “It’s about education and it’s about running a business.” see REDD, pg. 8

were apprehended. O’Bryant was the officer who was working on the tactical channel. Her nomination by Deputy Director Charlie Udriet praised O’Bryant for “her coordination of the massive amount of information that she had to handle from two separate agencies in order to keep the investigation seamless.”

A Louisa County native, O’Bryant often visited Hanover County with her parents unknowingly, particularly when shopping at the Food Lion in Montpelier. “I’ve been coming to Hanover since I was a girl, I just didn’t know it,” she said with a laugh. O’Bryant came to work for Hanover Emergency Communications in September 2016. She had pre-

viously worked part-time as a deputy sheriff in the Henrico County Jail but wanted a job where she felt she could make a more positive impact on people. “I was looking for a job in 911,” she recalls, and Hanover was just the right size for her – not too big an operation. She had not worked in communications but “I had some basic skills like typing and I figured

they could teach me the rest.” What she likes about her job is “the ability to make a difference” in the lives of the people who contact her, many of whom are experiencing a crisis. “Sometimes things turn out badly, but sometimes we are able to turn it around,” she explains. “It has the ability to be incredibly rewarding. When I do my job well, I feel

fulfilled.” “Kayla always strives to make sure that callers receive the utmost customer service, regardless if it’s a high priority call or just a call or advice/ information needed,” Udriet said. “Her overall work ethic and determination is not to just maintain her skills but to improve them and make them better…She is a great asset to

REDD

is the only member who actually has children in Hanover schools. “We had several candidates… who had children in the school system and who would be there for some time. I think that is a valuable voice,” Kelly-Wiecek said. The chair also cited the need for collaboration for anyone willing to work on the school board. “It is essential that you collaborate with people, and Im deeply concerned that we may not be choosing the best and the most collaborative individual,” she said. Kelly-Wiecek said Redd had personally assured her that he could meet those expectations. And Redd expressed similar sentiments when he took the podium to accept the nomination. “I am very honored that Mr. Peterson appointed me and that you guys have voted to have confidence in me to serve on this board,” Redd said. Regarding collaboration, Redd said he had already begun the process by interacting with audience members, some of whom had expressed displeasure with his nomination during a public comment period help prior to the appointment process. “I have already spoken to people in the audience tonight about getting with them on this transgender issue. I am not what many have painted me as being – someone that is not inclusive of all ideas,” he said. “I

am open to hear from them.” Redd said he looks forward to serving his term that begins in July and issued a guarantee to the board. “I pledge not to disappoint you.” A number of speakers expressed concerns regarding Redd’s nomination during the comment period, many citing his remarks provided in the recent newspaper article. Jennifer Womble referred to the plight of LGBT community in Hanover schools and comments made by Redd regarding that community. “Not addressing these social changes or even accepting what you deem incorrectly as immoral, illogical and ungodly, you are intentionally marginalizing these kids in a school environment that will not allow them to be who they truly are. This has many detrimental effects on their mental health,” Womble said. Redd had stated, “My attention will be focused on returning to the primary purpose of the public schools in Hanover County — education of the students, not indoctrination of the students, not promoting social change that is illogical, immoral and/or ungodly,” in the T-D series that questioned all eight candidates. Mechanicsville resident Peggy Lavinder also expressed concerns with Redd’s recent comments. “All signs indicate that we are getting a school board member who is quoted in the

paper saying that he will find some children immoral for being who they are; he will call them evil,” Lavender said. “He will take names, take charge and use his Bible to wield decisions, wield power over policy and regulations — a Bible that is not my faith practice.” She said the appointment sends the wrong message for many Hanover students and parents. “It’s all a message to a certain part of our Hanover community that you will not be protected, you will not be safe, you will not be considered,” she added. Redd stated in those submitted responses that “We have strayed from godly principles and are reaping the consequences of disobedience. This is our watch — I take that very seriously. This is my watch — I have an assignment. Am I going to stand against immoral and illogical ideologies — YES! I am not going to be silently complicit and allow an evil tide to carry THE CHILDREN to a point where they are brainwashed.” Following the meeting, Redd said, “I will say I thought they came at me mighty hard. I don’t feel that I am that unreasonable. I care about all the kids,” he said. “During the recess, I went back and approached a couple of those transgender parents and said I want to meet with you and understand it a little better. I want to get to know what they are looking for.”

Ashland supervisor Faye Prichard said she would be departing from her longstanding practice of supporting the nominees of her fellow supervisors. “On my six years on this board, I’ve prided myself on not voting party but in fact, voting my conscience,” she said. “I have great respect for my fellow board members and this is the first time I’ve ever chosen not to support a board member in his nomination of a candidate.” Prichard referenced remarks Redd provided to the Richmond Times-Dispatch. “In his interview in the T-D, he made it very clear that he cannot equally support all the children in our schools, and our job is a simple but very difficult one. We have to educate every child in this county, and in order to do that, we have to provide them with support and respect. If I don’t believe a board member can do that, I cannot support him,” she added. Board chair Angela KellyWiecek said she also has a history of supporting her fellow board members’ nominations but could not do so on the candidate being considered. She noted the importance of personal involvement with the schools and pointed out that current board member Daniel

Elementary school teacher honored as Beginning Teacher of the Year Contributed Report news@mechocal.com Lilly Roviralta, a second grade teacher at Cool Spring Elementary School (CSES), has been named the 2021-22 Hanover County Public Schools (HCPS) Beginning Teacher of the Year. Roviralta, a former Cool Spring Dolphin, now teaches at the elementary school she attended. “Coming in to work as a teacher at the same school I attended has been an incredible experience. I was able to quickly reconnect with familiar faces in a new way, as a professional, which allowed me to easily gain a positive working environment for me to grow as a teacher,” Roviralta said. “The love and support that is given at this school is one of the main reasons why I believe I have become the teacher that I have in such a short amount of time. It is also because of my work family that I believe I will continue to have a safe place to gain the knowledge needed to continue to grow.” Dr. Michael Gill, superintendent of schools, made the announcement on Wednesday, May 18 at a CSES staff meeting, surprising Roviralta in front of her family and co-workers (some of whom she had as a teacher). Roviralta called the recognition the “validation that all of the hard work I have put in has made an impact on my students, their families and my colleagues.” “Every day I put a great amount of love and care into teaching, and this recognition shows me that I am doing my students, CSES and Hanover County Public Schools justice in doing so,” she said. “It is humbling and an incredible honor to be recognized.” Roviralta also thanked the

parents of her students. “Throughout this year I have tried my best to provide a safe space for my students to learn, grow and celebrate successes. They have so beautifully adopted this model from me, and in turn provided a safe space for me to learn, make mistakes, grow and so kindly celebrate my successes,” she said. “I owe so much of my success this year to those 23 awesome second graders! Parents, you are raising some incredible people!” CSES Principal Sarah Pike said the school’s community is thrilled to see “Ms. Rovi” receive the recognition. “Ms. Rovi teaches with energy, clarity and high levels of student engagement. She is all about her students and their learning,” Pike said. “Every day, she demonstrates love and care for her students and encourages their individual growth and self-awareness. She prioritizes the classroom community, encouraging all of her students

to be positive, productive and contributing citizens who look out for one another. “From this strong foundation of positive relationships, Ms. Rovi pushes her students to understand what they are learning and why they are learning it, providing consistent opportunities for students to apply new skills and reflect in every lesson and content,” Pike added. “We are so lucky to have rockstar educators like Ms. Rovi here at CSES!” Each year, HCPS selects one new teacher for this distinguished award who exhibits several qualities, such as being inspirational, poised, articulate and knowledgeable; exceptionally skilled and dedicated; respected and admired by students, parents and colleagues; and actively and meaningfully involved in their school and community.

CHENAULT

CHENAULT, Bonnie Whitlock “Bonbon”, 77, went to be with her Lord May 24, 2022. She passed peacefully after spending her final days surrounded by the love and support of her family. A native of Hanover, she was born August 11, 1944 to Goldie and Clifton Whitlock. She was preceded in death by her parents; and her brother, Clifton Earl Whitlock. Bonnie is survived by her devoted husband of 60 years, Melvin Borum Chenault; children, Cindy Chenault Overton, Michael B. Chenault (wife, Kate) and Rodney K. Chenault; seven grandchildren, Sarah Overton Wall (Cameron), Rachel Overton (Ryan Hippeard), Morgan Chenault Wells (Josh), Abby Chenault Allen (Skyler), Molly Chenault, Courtney Chenault and Jack Chenault;

four great-grandchildren, Wraylyn, Ryan, Cooper and Bishop, with two more on the way, Peyton and Walker. Her family was Bonnie’s passion and joy in life and she loved them all fiercely. Bonbon was the best grandma and shared a special relationship with each grandchild. She attended countless ballgames, dance and music recitals, school events – preschool through college. Her favorite thing was having her whole family together. She was the best at making every birthday, holiday and family gathering special and beautiful. She and Melvin enjoyed a lot of great travel through the years with friends and family, but Bonnie was happiest at her home on the Rappahannock River, where she lived for 20-plus years. Once she had raised her family, she founded Hometown Realty in 1988. Bonnie was so thankful and honored to work alongside her wonderful partners, so many amazing agents through the years, her children and now grandchildren. Her one and only rule – “Treat people the way you want to be treated” – will be carried on in her honor and memory.

GIANNASI

GIANNASI, Deborah THOMSON, age 66, departed this life after a brief and valiant battle with cancer. She lived a traditional childhood in favor of family and faith and embraced an imaginative, carefree and unencumbered lifestyle as a teen growing up during the 1960s and 1970s in Mechanicsville, Virginia. Blessed from birth with a distinct emotional and intellectual energy, Debra naturally found her way in the social strata that was part of an era of burgeoning independence and self-reliance. Scouting, cheering, twirling the batons and excelling in the classroom, Debra was a graduate of Lee Davis High School and continued her education at Virginia Tech and Mount Saint Mary’s. Married, relocated and eager

to start her own family, Debra proudly raised her two daughters, Lauren and Heather, in Damascus, Maryland. She was an attentive and loving mother. Ever the matriarch of her family, Debra found tremendous joy in time spent with the girls, engaging them in all things traditional, eventful and adventurous. Debra later migrated and resided in Cary, North Carolina, to again be close to her girls who had settled in the area after each had graduated from University of North Carolina at Wilmington. She was an adaptive professional with a love for teaching, serving as an educator in the primary school system while in Maryland and later transforming herself in her career as an executive administrator in the financial service industry. Debra was fun-loving, full of wit and always principled in her demeanor. She lived in the moment. She was kind, compassionate and charismatic. Debra tended to always do what’s right and do what’s good. Her caring and selfless generosity towards others was ever present in her pursuit of serene happiness. It suited her servant heart. Debra was most contented by soft ocean breezes, long walks, toes in sand, book in hand and the unconditional love of her pets. She loved to travel and enjoyed adventure cruises, mostly outward bound to distant shores with the two girls, her mother, family and friends. Debra continued to follow her faith and continuously enjoyed traditional bible study in the company of her many friends in North Carolina. Debra is survived by her mother, Dorothy Seelman Giannasi; beloved daughters, Lauren Michelle Thomson and Heather Nicole Thomson; and her brothers, see OBITUARIES, pg. 11

Salem Presbyterian Church in Studley is having its annual Steak Dinner fundraiser on Saturday, June 4 from 4 to 6 p.m. This event will raise money for two local families that need financial help with medical cost. Bella is 10 years old. In December of last year, she was diagnosed with leukemia. Bella has just begun a two-and-a-half-year treatment plan that includes chemo treatments several times a month. Her parents, Chrissy and Mike, are taking turns being with her while she is in the hospital for her treatments. Bella and her twin brother, Jake, attend Kersey Creek Elementary School. She also has an older sister, Olivia. The family, extended family and friends are so inspired by Bella’s positive attitude and compassion for other children that are also at the hospital when she is there. Bella’s sweet smile will melt your heart. The other family has a newborn son, Colton, who was born with a congenital heart malformation that has a vascular ring

caused by a double aortic arch. This ring caused tightening around the esophagus and trachea. His condition was discovered while his mother, Lauren, was pregnant with him. When Colton’s mom went into labor, she was immediately rushed to a hospital in Washington, D.C. A team of doctors closely monitored the delivery. Colton was operated on in early May to correct the condition. The surgery was successful. Follow-up care will be intensive, time consuming and expensive. This beautiful baby boy is Lauren and Kevin’s first child. They are blessed to see him recovering every day. The tickets are $20 for the adult steak dinner and $10 for a child’s plate, which will be a hamburger or hot dog. There is a raffle for a $500 gift card to Lowes and the tickets are $5 per ticket. An auction of items will also take place near the end of the dinner. Cash donations will be accepted for this fundraiser. Make checks to Salem Presbyterian Church and mail it to P.O.

tive in Virginia by Habitat to bring low-income homeowners access to solar energy. Keisha Young, who has been a Habitat homeowner since 2011, said she is very excited to be the first Hanover and King William Habitat solar home. She said it was like “a Christmas gift,” as Habitat first reached out to Young last December about going solar. Young’s home received a solar panel installation with no cost to Habitat, thanks to the fundraising efforts of GiveSolar. Jeff Heie, director of GiveSolar, spearheaded a project in 2021 to raise funds to help Habitat affiliates in Virginia launch solar programs. He will be partnering with 10 Habitats across the state. Hanover and King William Habitat is the second Habitat in Virginia to partner with GiveSolar.

“One of the reasons I work with Habitat homeowners is that they have a harder time gaining access to solar,” said Heie. “So this project is about trying to make solar accessible to people who kind of fall in that lower income spectrum.” Heie said Young will save around $70 a month on her electric bill and thousands of dollars overtime with her newly-installed 5-kW solar system, which consists of 14 solar panels. Steve Trivett, Town of Ashland Mayor and Habitat board member, said he is very excited for the solar home installation and hopes it will become more widespread. “The money that she saves on the solar, that’s money for family, outings, education… So it is wonderful that the savings that come from this can go into a family’s life,” Trivett said. In addition, her new energy source is better for the environment than relying on fos-

sil fuels, which are the primary source of electricity in Virginia, said Heie. “We’re reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Every kilowatt hour that’s produced through solar is one less kilowatt hour that’s produced through burning natural gas or even coal,” said Heie. “So this is an opportunity to start shifting away from fossil fuels.” Solar power converts natural sunlight into useable electricity for buildings. It can also protect homeowners from the rising price of natural gas used to generate electricity, which is expected to increase rates up to 20% in the next year. “We also didn’t want to burden homeowners with systems that are going to be a lot of maintenance and have to be replaced after 10 years,” said Renee Robinson, Hanover and King William Habitat for Humanity Executive Director. “There’s been so many advancements in solar to where now it’s a much more

long-term, sort of set it and forget it type of thing.” The solar system placed on Young’s home will last for 25 to 30 years with little to no maintenance. Her home was selected based on the home’s sun exposure, position, past electricity bills and Young’s willingness to partner with the organizations. Young’s home is the pilot project for Habitat’s new solar installation initiative. Habitat will monitor the installation on Young’s home in order to incorporate funding into the new initiative moving forward. “This is the pilot, so that we have the data to be able to persuade other homeowners that this is a good thing to do,” said John Suddarth, Habitat board treasurer and champion of this cause. He has over 40 solar panels installed on his own home and has been working for years to introduce solar to Habitat homes. “We’re trying to get to the point where in the future, we

make every effort for every Habitat home to possibly have it,” Suddarth said. Suddarth gathered a group of Ashland volunteers to help install the panels alongside a group of Convert Solar installers, which took a few hours under the sweltering morning heat. Convert Solar is a full-service solar energy system provider based in Virginia Beach. Solar United Neighbors connected Habitat with the local installer, Convert Solar. Solar United Neighbors is a national nonprofit that represents the needs and interests of solar owners and supporters across the country. According to Aaron Sutch, Atlantic Southeast Region Director for Solar United Neighbors, they have conducted around 1,100 solar installations in Virginia since 2014, which is the most out of any nonprofit in Virginia. “And so in doing that, we have a lot of knowledge of the industry,” Sutch said, which allows them to help connect interested nonprofits with local installers. In addition, they partnered with Heie to raise $30,000 for homes in Rockingham County as part of GiveSolar’s seed fund initiative in Virginia. Sutch said he believes solar energy will continue to take off among homeowners. While not every house is a perfect fit, the technology is getting cheaper and constantly advancing, he said. “And the beauty of this is… everybody loves it, they love to save money,” Sutch said. “So it’s apolitical.” “And the idea of growing your own energy on your house… there’s something empowering about it,” he added. “Like, I am an energy producer.” For more information on Hanover and King William Habitat for Humanity, visit https://www.hkwhabitat.org/.

dawn twilight. Venus will be brilliant above the eastern horizon. Mercury is not as bright, below and to the left. Mercury makes its greatest western elongation on June 16. Mars and Jupiter rise around 2 a.m. (Jupiter first by about 20 minutes). They’ll be visible to the southeast before sunrise. Saturn rises at midnight – look for it due south when you find Mars and Jupiter. The mid-month view, about 3 hours after sunset finds the “great square of Hercules” at zenith. The relatively bright globular cluster M13 (Great Globular Cluster in Hercules) spans almost 1/3 degree and is a naked-eye object on a clear and moonless night. Binoculars or a small telescope will give a better view. This cluster contains several hundred thousand older stars (it may be 10 billion years old) and is about 150 light years across. It lies about 24,000 light years away. Due east of zenith it’s easy to spot the bright star Vega. Indeed, it’s the brightest star in the sky at this time. The southern horizon marks the direction toward the center of the Milky Way Galaxy, about 25,000 light years from the Sun, in the direction of the constellation Sagittarius. The actual center is obscured from our view in visible light, but we know that a massive black hole (about 4 million solar masses) marks the dynamical center. Radio and X-ray astronomy reveals a gas cloud known as G2 which appears

about to fall into this black hole, and we’re looking with anticipation at this event over the next several years. Observations will tell us a lot about the true nature of black holes and will serve as a test of the General Theory of Relativity. Ursa Major lies to the northwest with the familiar “pointer stars” at the end of the dipper’s bowl marking the direction to Polaris, the North Star. Following the arc of the “handle” of the dipper – or the tail of the bear – will take you to the west, where you will see the bright star Arcturus. Continue the same arc to the southwest and you’ll find Saturn, about 25 degrees above the horizon, and above and to the left of Spica.

Honoring the life of historic preservationist Robert Bluford By Christina Amano Dolan Editor

T

he Rev. Dr. Robert Bluford Jr., known for his work as a theologian, historic preservationist and founder of Historic Polegreen Church Foundation, has died. He was 103. Bluford, or “Dr. Bob” as he was affectionately known, had a “very distinguished and lengthy history,” according to David Fuller, president of the Historic Polegreen Church Foundation. He was a theologian, historic preservationist, military aviator, author, conservationist and a man with a keen eye for real estate acquisitions, Fuller said. One of his greatest legacies was his extraordinary efforts in the preservation and interpretation of the Historic Polegreen Church. Bluford died on April 30. “As founder of the Historic Polegreen Church Foundation and chairman of its board of directors, Dr. Buford was a visionary with never-ending vigor and devoted more than 30 years to the preservation and interpretation of the church site

in Hanover County,” said Fuller. Polegreen Church, located at 6411 Heatherwood Drive, Mechanicsville, is the site of what may be the first nonAnglican church in Virginia. A small meetinghouse was built in 1743 with a larger church built several years later. The site became vital to the colonists’ struggle for religious freedom during the Great Awakening movement in Virginia. The church was led by the Rev. Samuel Davies, who inspired a young Patrick Henry that attended the church with his

mother. Davies became the first licensed non-Anglican minister in Virginia and eventually became president of what is now Princeton University. Polegreen Church burned down in 1864 during the Civil War Battle of Totopotomoy Creek. A stone monument was displayed on the site in 1929, and around 1975, Bluford took an interest in the storyline. “And that led him to the realization of a vision that perhaps on that nondescript piece of land, there was a story that could be developed and a his-

tory that was worth preserving, which led to Historic Polegreen Church,” said Fuller. Bluford eventually transformed the site into the beautiful historic attraction that stands today. In studying the history of the church, he came to discover the foundation of the building brick by brick. Using existing sketches of the building that were composed in 1862, the Historic Polegreen Church Foundation was able to reconstruct a “ghost church.” “His efforts led others to join that particular cause, to

recognize the value of historic interpretation and preservation,” Fuller said. “Not just building buildings or trying to put things for people to see, but rather tell the story about the people who lived during the times... to unfold that avenue, to bring it forth, give it life, put a structure in place that people would wonder when they drove by, ‘What is it? Why haven’t they finished the building?’” “I think Bob’s influence with that type of vision of interpretation, as well as preservation, is going to be his legacy,” Fuller added. Bluford’s efforts also led to removing improvements made over the last 200 years and clearing the view shed surrounding the church’s site to emulate what it likely looked like in colonial days. Now stands a peaceful strip of 110 acres of land, some of which extends to the birthplace of Patrick Henry. “It is up to [the Historic Polegreen Church Foundation] to continue that legacy of keeping that view shed open, being able to sweep your arms around and say, ‘This is what it looked like in the early 1700s,’”

said Fuller. The site has served as both a “place of reverence” and a “place of celebration” for visitors over the years, as property has become a popular attraction for wedding celebrations. The site has additionally hosted naturalization ceremonies prior to the COVID-19 pandemic and a variety of other programs. Fuller said countless others can share stories of Bluford’s influence and legacy over the years. “He lived for 103 years, and my gosh, everything he touched turned into gold,” Fuller said. Bluford was passionate about history, preservation and interpretation, and “making things real for people today to understand the why behind it,” he added. “Dr. Bob valued the worth of every person and made it his lifelong mission to lift up each individual with whom he came in contact,” Fuller said. “The board of directors extends its sympathies to the Bluford family and rejoices in Bob’s vision as it serves as a reminder that indeed one person can make a difference.”

Atlee boys, girls win Region 4B track titles By Dave Lawrence Sports Editor MECHANICSVILLE — Atlee coach Neil Mathews thought his boys and girls outdoor track and field teams had a chance at winning their respective Region 4B championships. So he rolled the dice, maximizing individual efforts, and hoped the gamble would pay off. Despite uncooperative weather on both days of the twoday meet, it did. Wednesday afternoon, the Raiders were crowned reigning kings and queens over their region rivals. Their biggest region rivals happened to be their county rivals. In the boys’ championship race, Patrick Henry trailed Atlee by just four points, 110106, with Hanover fourth and Mechanicsville fifth. In the girls, the Hawks were just seven points behind the Raiders, 1495-142.5, with Patrick Henry seventh and Mechanicsville in a tie for eight with Chancellor. “I was thrilled to death. I was super excited, super happy for the team,” said Atlee head track and field coach Neil Mathews. “I felt like it was a complete team effort, and we hadn’t had many of those complete team efforts. You know, recently we had been putting bits and pieces together whether it was we divided them on purpose, you know, or kind of split them up on purpose, resting some, racing others. “The kids did a lot of things right leading into the meet to be ready by resting appropriately.

Todd Benhase the pole vault. “We were chasing the lead on both boys and girls side and the girls it was, you know, a two-team race, us and Atlee or us and Jada Foreman — however you want to look at it. She won six events. She’s just an incredibly amazing athlete,” said Hanover head coach Rich Firth. “It came down to the fact that they scored 19 points in the 300 hurdles and we had none. But we did — our kids did — everything we could. I mean, I couldn’t ask for anymore. We just came up short.” Patrick Henry’s team was hampered by illnesses and injuries, but they still got solid performances, especially on the boys side. The Patriot boys 4x800 team won, as did Shamar Williams in the 100 dash and

We were never able to catch them during the meet. … “They put a great plan together, and they threw everything they had into individual events to try to maximize on their points. We were separated by four points at the end. So it’s kind of fun always competing against Neil and those guys.” Blake Moody led Mechanicsville with in the boys 200 and 400 dashes.

friends at Patrick Henry. The Patriots played Courtland in a first-round game on May 25, and the Cougars had to rely upon their ace to get through to the quarterfinal while Mechanicsville had a bye. “Their pitching staff was pretty reliant upon one guy — a freshman that’s going to UVA — and PH went up 5-nothing on their No. 1 guy, so they had to use some of their pitching,” said Mechanicsville head coach Tyler Johnson. “It really helped us to have that bye.” Mustang starting pitcher Sam Owens kept Chancellor batters at bay, allowing just three hits and walking two

while striking out nine. He pitched his way out of a twoout jam in the fifth inning to preserve the shutout. He got plenty of offensive support. Dallas Hairfield went 2-of-3 with a home run and four RBIs. Jacob Koenig has a home run and two RBIs. Trevor Loving and Aaron Maxie each had doubles, while C.J. DiNapoli drove in two runs with a single in the fourth inning. Hanover advanced to the region semifinals with a 6-0 win over Atlee Thursday. Dave Lawrence can be reached at dlawrence@mechlocal.com.

Mechanicsville girls advance with gutsy win over Monacan By Dave Lawrence Sports Editor MECHANICSVILLE — Mechanicsville High School’s girls soccer team wasn’t going to waste home field advantage Thursday night when Monacan came for the teams’ Region 4B quarterfinal matchup. The Chiefs came to play and, despite falling behind 2-0 in the first half, frequently challenged the Mustangs for control of the pitch, but in the end, four dif-

ferent Mechanicsville players scored for a 4-1 victory. The regional win was a long time coming for the Mechanicsville team. “I don’t remember the last time Mechanicsville — or LeeDavis, whichever you want to call it — had a win in the regional tournament,” said Mustang head coach Paul Doss. “It was good for the girls — they were real excited — and is something we can build upon getting this program to the next level.”

Mechanicsville hosted Hanover in one semifinal Tuesday (after this edition went to press) while Atlee hosted Eastern View. Semifinal winners advance to the state tournament, which begins next week. Bailey Altizer, Lindsey Schenack, Mackenzie Joly and Kaitlyn Henderson scored goals for the Mustangs. Dave Lawrence can be reached at dlawrence@mechlocal.com.
