Bailout move tops informational talk County officials, NAACP, Democrats share opinions on Voting Rights Act request By Jim Ridolphi for The Mechanicsville Local

Jim Ridolphi for The Local

Hanover County registrar Teri Smithson conducted an informational meeting on voting issues, including the county’s request to be removed from Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act.

Hanover County registrar Teri Smithson and county attorney Sterling Rives covered a wide variety of voter related issues at an informational meeting on Saturday at the county’s administration building. Not surprisingly, the subject receiving the most discussion was the county’s recent decision to move forward with a bailout request removing the

county from pre-clearance U.S. Justice Department guidelines. When the Voting Rights Act of 1965 was passed ensuring every American equal access to the polls, nine states were targeted for pre-clearance requirements because of past problems with minority voting. Virginia was included in that list, and localities are required to receive Justice Department pre-clearance on any and all voting changes, including precinct moves or adjustment of hours of opera-

tion. “Today, I cannot hold a voter registration drive without mailing the Department of Justice. You have to be pre-cleared for that,” Smithson said. Smithson said the process requires “tons of paperwork” and costs county taxpayers needless dollars. Section 5 also delays electoral actions in some cases. Originally installed to ensure localities adhered to the Voting Rights Act, the pre-clearance requirements are not necessary in Hanover County, according

to Smithson. More than 25 counties in Virginia have applied for and received an exemption from the requirements, citing no voting violations or election infractions for decades. “The Justice Department itself recognizes that localities and jurisdictions who have a good voting rights record should be able to be exempted from this first step,” Rives said. see VOTING, pg. 4 

Officials get whirlwind schools’ tour By Jim Ridolphi for The Mechanicsville Local

Jim Ridolphi for The Local

Dale Earnhart Jr. addressed students at Patrick Henry High School last week and told the students to stay in school and emphasized the importance of education. Story on page 7.

Just under 18,000 students made their way to Hanover County’s 25 schools for the first day of school last week, and Dr. Jamelle Wilson, superintendent of Hanover County Public Schools; Hanover County School Board chair Ann F.H. Gladstone and communications specialist Linda Scarborough made a stop at each and every county campus to welcome students. For the mid-point of the tour, they visited Hanover High School. Wilson said it had been a successful first day, despite the

normal opening session jitters. “I couldn’t sleep last night just like the way it was the first year I was a teacher,” she said. “It’s been an incredible morning, and there’s an incredible energy in all of our schools,” Wilson added as she completed her eleventh tour of the busy day.

After 22 years in public education, Wilson is more than familiar with the opening day routine, and said she appreciates the excitement of students and teachers. “You know what to expect, but there’s still a little bit of see TOUR, pg. 4

In his 25 years as county attorney, Rives said none of the county’s pre-clearance applications have been denied or found to have discriminatory motives or results. Even with the Saturday morning schedule, about 75 citizens showed up for the meeting and voiced concerns regarding the county’s request. Some speakers couldn’t understand the lack of communication between the Board of Supervisors who took the initial action to begin the process of “bailout” and the county’s NAACP chapter and the local Democratic Committee. Mechanicsville District supervisor Canova Peterson said that was partially his fault. He said he had met with NAACP president Robert Barnette. “He told me that he didn’t think his group would support the move,” Peterson said. He said he didn’t realize that Barnette had removed himself from the office of chair of the local Democratic Party to accept the NAACP position. Both of those groups registered their formal opposition at Saturday’s meeting. “For the record, we oppose Hanover going forward with a bailout at this time,” Barnette said. “Number one, we feel like it would restrict minority citizens in having a say in the process of not only redistricting changes and ID (identification) laws, but incremental changes. This pre-clearance also affects if you want to change the time of when we vote.” He also cited the lack of information sessions regarding the bailout. “Our citizens need to know more about the pro-

apprehension just because it’s the first day of something new,” she said. “You know to expect the unexpected and be ready to respond.” Gladstone said the tour was strategically designed to include a visit to every county school while keeping it non-invasive. “It’s been a whirlwind tour. We only spend a few minutes at each school because we want to get to them all,” she said. “We don’t want to disrupt the schedule. We just want to share and

cess. We have been shut out for too long,” Barnette said. Rives told the group that removal from the pre-clearance requirements does not remove any of the Voting Act’s requirements, and disenfranchised voters will still have the same avenues of appeal and complaint. Smithson agreed. “We will always be under the Voting Rights Act. Section 5 is a very small part of that,” she said. “There will still be oversight. The Department of Justice does not take this lightly when you apply for bailout.” Rives also said he’s been advocating for the move for 10 years. “I thought it would be a feather in Hanover’s cap if we were one of the first Virginia localities to qualify for the exemption,” he said. “I’m proud of more recent history we have here in Hanover.” He also said that previous boards felt the timing was wrong. Smithson said citizens would still have input in redistricting in public meetings and hearings held throughout the county during that process. Many in the audience expressed a desire to leave the guidelines in place and said the extra paperwork is “just part of the job.” Barnette, who voiced his group’s opposition to the plan, said a main concern was the lack of communication. “Come talk to us and get our opinion and then go through the process if you think it’s necessary,” Barnette said following the meeting. “As you saw today, people think it’s an erosion of their voting rights.” Moving forward, Barnette said he would attempt to raise awareness on the proposed plan. “We are going to engage our citizens. The Hanover NAACP has Democrats, Republicans and Independent voters and

drink in some of what’s going on,” Gladstone said. Dr. Dana Gresham could relate to the opening day anticipation, as she was midway through her first opening day as Hanover High’s new principal. Halfway through the day, she said she was pleased with the relatively business as usual atmosphere at the school. “It’s been quiet and routine,” she said. “The kids came in ready to get down to business and the teachers are well prepared, so it’s been a great first day,” Gresham said. She said the real preparation

we are going to make sure that they are aware of the entire issue.” Smithson took advantage of the informational meeting to cover and explain Virginia’ new voter ID law, the role of poll watchers, election laws and other voting and registration issues She said voters will be required to show identification in the upcoming election, but that requirement could be satisfied in a variety of ways. Acceptable forms of ID are: ✓ Virginia voter registration cards. ✓ Social Security card. ✓ Virginia driver’s license. ✓ Concealed handgun permit. ✓ Any ID issued by a government agency of the Commonwealth. ✓ Valid state student IDs. ✓ Employer ID cards with photos. ✓ A copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check or paycheck stub. Smithson said she is expecting a heavy turnout for the Nov. 6 general election. Any voter can be challenged regarding identification at the polls, but will be still be allowed to fill out a provisional ballot. They would be required to verify their identification with the Board of Elections within three days of the election. “Is there a law to keep that poll worker from illegitimately challenging eligible voters over and over again?” Joe O’Connor asked. Smithson said the precinct chief would handle those situations. Rives stressed the bailout procedure is a long and detailed process that would probably take over a year. The proposal will require additional public hearings and informational meetings.

takes place in the summer. “As a principal, I think the challenges are in the weeks leading up to today. The teachers have done a great job getting ready,” Gresham said. “Much of that preparation is done in July and August.” The group visited 23 schools on Tuesday, Sept. 4, and finished the tour Wednesday morning. Also visiting the Hanover High campus were Board of Supervisors chair Ed Via and School Board member Hank Lowry. Gresham gave the two Ashland District representatives a tour of the school.

OPINION | The Local Views From the editor

LETTERS

A four-letter word being used too often

| Reader Views

Is it just me or does this election cycle seem more vicious than those in recent years? What’s especially disturbing is the word hate is being used all too often — and, surprisingly, by some who cite faith-based lives and family values. So, how does hate work into a political platform and encourage voters to support candidates who freely use a word that carries such harm? Maybe this is a “thinking out loud” moment. Personally, I find it alarming and unacceptable behavior to practically boast about hating anyone. Granted, we have enemies in other parts of the world and our great nation strives to improve the lives of people around the globe by confronting and/or attacking those who would cause unnecessary pain to the innocent. I do not and will not discuss my political beliefs. While some have claimed we are not fair or balanced based upon the opinions of our readers in letters to the editor, we — as a newspaper publication — are diligent in remaining neutral and unbiased. Letters to the editor are the opinions of those who write and submit. Enough said on that. No, it isn’t about what I think or claim to know. It’s just frightening when people who either are leaders or are trying to attain that status freely and arrogantly say they hate a candidate. We’re still the United States of America. And being united means being one. The division we are seeing in this campaign can and will send the wrong message to those we view as threats. Be heard, be involved, be a part of the process. Most of all, be a voter. But don’t be a hater. If you don’t agree with a candidate’s platform or performance, then cast a ballot for his/her opponent. That is your right and one we should not take for granted. Voting is a privilege and we must accept it accordingly. Again, hate isn’t the word or the direction we need or want for our country and its future. In closing, we must extend our sincerest condolences to the family of Oscar Watson. The Black Creek Volunteer Fire Department and Hanover County share this loss. The man who brought us the Hanover Tomato Festival will be missed. Melody Kinser

4. Another disturbing thing is this end-of-the-world Rapture mentality that, supposedly, all of this bad stuff we’re currently fielding as a nation is God’s plan for the ages and that there’s nothing we can do about it. I’m sure glad our predecessors didn’t look at the gargantuan junk they were facing during times of oppression and upheaval and say, “Oh, well. The Rapture must be right around the corner.” No, what they did was think, work, pray and fight. And guess what, end-of-the-world Christians? They yielded up this grand experiment in self-governance, that’s what. The Church needs the Biblical rebel spirit of our founders injected back into the evangelical mix instead of this squishy, compliant stuff that’s currently cranking through our pulpits and pews. God help the Church to lose its cowardly bent in these critical days. Amen. W.S. Wright Hanover

Dale Jr. at PHHS: stay in school By Jim Ridolphi for The Mechanicsville Local The dream lives on. Dale Earnhart, Jr. told students at Patrick Henry High School last week that there’s only one profession he’d be willing to trade his successful NASCAR career for. “I wanted to be a football player so bad,� he said. “I’d still consider trading in my career for even a mediocre 15-year career in the NFL,� he joked Race week enthusiasm hit a fever pitch when the NASCAR driver visited the Ashland campus on Thursday. Local members of the National Guard, the primary sponsor of his #88 race car, accompanied Earnhart, 37, one of the sport’s most popular drivers. After posing with a long line of admirers and fans, Earnhart addressed a packed gymnasium of enthusiastic students, didn’t dodge a single inquiry, and

offered some good advice for his young fans. He told the group one of his biggest regrets was his failure to excel in high school. Earnhart said the lack of academic focus limited his options for college. Fortunately, Earnhart was the son of legendary NASCAR legend Dale Sr., and racing provided a successful career path for him. A burning desire for speed and a determination to drive before the 16-year-old age limit led Earnhart Jr. to the track. “When I was about 12 years old, I knew it would be four more years before I could get my driver’s license,� Earnhart said. “I was begging my dad to let me race go-karts, but he just didn’t have the time.� He said it dawned on him when he was watching television and lamenting the long wait in front of him before he could legally drive. “I decided right there that I wanted to be a race car driver.�

Having a globally recognized name that opened some doors and possessing a solid work effort made that dream come true for Earnhart. That love continues today, and when asked what his favorite thing about racing is, he said,� For the most part, you get to drive fast, travel, and meet a lot of people.� Earnhart travels to high schools across the nation as part of a National Guard-sponsored program to support education. After dozens of NASCAR races, Earnhart said he still feels the butterflies every time he straps in. “Every time I’m in the car, I feel like every lap you are judged by how you perform,� he said. “I can’t escape this fear of failure. I don’t fear the danger or the safety. I thought that would go away, but, if that goes away, then you don’t care. Every time I get in the car, I can’t relax.� Patrick Henry director of

student activities Matt Crowder presented Earnhart with a Patriot football helmet to add to his collection. The driver said he has an extensive collection of helmets from high school, college and NFL teams. Speaking of the NFL, Earnhart displayed no hesitation in expressing his allegiance to the Washington Redskins. He’s a lifelong fan who still dreams of one day suiting up for the local favorites. When asked about people who have inspired him in life, Earnhart listed his father first, but several old time “Hogs� were second. After the assembly, Earnhart fielded questions from Patrick Henry’s communications related classes and expounded on his academic shortcomings. “If I made a ‘C,’ I knew I wouldn’t get in trouble at home, so that’s all I had to do,� he said. “I didn’t think I needed to make see DALE JR., pg. 15

damage this administration and Congress have inflicted on our Constitution and its restrictions on the federal government’s power. In recent decades, time and time again, we have watched legislative processes being short-circuited by radical factions of congressional leadership working in concert with administration arm-twisters.

ed the Executive Branch the right to control transportation, communication, immigration, and natural resources – all without Congress or the American people putting up viable resistance. We are approaching a Constitutional crisis and this is a major part of the reason why Americans are so disenchanted with the overall leadership of our country. These days, it seems that the rules apply to the people and the states, but not the federal government! We need to demand our elected officials uphold

their promise to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and demand the restoration of constitutional authority, accountability, transparency, and respect for the rule of law by our elected officials! In recent years, we have repeatedly witnessed the radicals in power in all three branches of federal government run roughshod over the Constitution, the rule of law, and the clear will of the American people. This must be stopped! Your next big chance comes Nov. 6, 2012! Be there! John Louis Mechanicsville

Constitution Week event Sisters share family’s recipes to get underway Monday by opening Sweetly Smitten Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com Sept. 17 begins the national celebration of Constitution Week. According to the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), the weeklong commemoration of America’s most important document is one of the country’s least known official observances. Bonnie D. Anderson, Constitution Week chairman of the Scotchtown Chapter of the DAR, submitted information from the DAR National Headquarters in Washington, D.C., about the observance. The tradition of celebrating the Constitution was started many years ago by the DAR. In 1955, the DAR petitioned the U.S. Congress to set aside Sept. 17-23 annually to be dedicated for the observance of Constitution Week. The resolution was later adopted by Congress and signed into Public Law #915 on Aug. 2, 1956, by President Dwight E. Eisenhower. The aims of the celebration are to: ★ Emphasize citizens’ responsibilities for protecting and defending the Constitution, preserving it for posterity. ★ Inform the people that the Constitution is the basis for America’s great heritage and the foundation for our way of life. ★ Encourage the study of the historical events that led to the framing of the Constitution in September 1787. The United States of America functions as a Republic under the Constitution, which is the oldest document still in active use that outlines the self-government of a people. “We must remember and teacht that those who wrote the Constitution believed that no

government can create freedom, but that government must guard freedom rather than encroach upon the freedom of its people,” Merry Ann T. Wright, president general of the DAR, said. “The Constitution by itself cannot guarantee liberty. A nation’s people can remain free only by being responsible citizens who are willing to learn about the rights of each arm of government and require that each is accountable for its own function. Therefore, Constitution Week is the perfect opportunity to read and study this great document, which is the safeguard of our American liberties. We encourage all citizens across the country to take time this week to guard that which is committed to us by our forefathers . . . our freedom.” DAR has served America for 122 years. In 1928, members began work on a building as a memorial to the Constitution. John Russell Pope, architect of the Jefferson Memorial, was commissioned to design the performing arts center, known as DAR Constitution Hall. Today, DAR Constitution Hall is the only structure erected in tribute to the Constitution of the United States of America. Known as the largest women’s patriotic organization in the world, the DAR has more than 165,000 members with about 3,000 chapters in all 50 states and 11 foreign countries. The DAR has promoted patriotism through commemorative celebrations, memorials, scholarships and activities for children, as well as programs for new immigrants. For more information about the DAR and its programs, visit www.dar.org or call 202-6281776.

Benefit scheduled for Sabrina’s Boys Fund For The Kids!, a benefit for Sabrina’s Boys, will get underway at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 15, at Cullens Cove in Mechanicsville.

Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com Sisters Demi Emmanouil and Litsa Kotsis have founded Sweetly Smitten in Mechanicsville. Demi and Litsa were born and raised in the restaurant business. Demi’s career started in the hospitality/ catering industry and later real estate, while Litsa’s career has been in the investment/insurance industry. Although they said they were successful in their respective careers, they could not suppress what they called “their love and passion for the culinary arts and particularly baking.” The inspiration to start Sweetly Smitten, and many of their recipes, came from their grandmother Rose and mother Marianthe, “who always made scrumptious desserts from scratch using family recipes that were passed down through generations.” Understanding the importance of quality ingredients, the sisters said that Sweetly Smitten’s cupcakes are baked “using the finest and freshest ingredients possible, including Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla, the finest chocolate, and the freshest butter, eggs, milk and locally grown fruit.” Demi and Litsa said Sweetly Smitten is dedicated to the local community and they are “big believers of giving back to the community” that has supported them and their business.

With all the accolades and trophies, Earnhart didn’t underestimate the value of a good education. “I missed out on the fouryear college deal. I went to a technical college to get an automotive degree, probably because I knew I wanted to work on cars, but, at the same time, my

Sisters Demi Emmanouil and Litsa Kotsis are using their mother’s and grandmother’s recipes at Sweetly Smitten.

They said they have found opportunities to “pay it forward” to local schools, nonprofits and other organizations. The sisters said their goal is to develop the local community “while putting a smile on the faces of everyone who lives in it — one cupcake bite at a time.” Sweetly Smitten will be located at 8324 Bell Creek Road Suite 700 in Mechanicsville. A grand opening date will be announced later.

He answered some really personal questions,” said PHHS student Lindsey Tate. In addition to the full-time racing career, Earnhart recently started his own production company. “We do commercials and photo shoots within our sport for other drivers and

myself,” he said. “I’d love for it to get big so we can do movies someday.” He also recently opened two automobile dealerships in Florida. “Being a race car driver has allowed me the opportunity to seek out different career paths that I can do once the driving is done,” Earnhart said. PHHS principal Wanda Bibb said the visit was everything and more than expected. “It was great for the kids to hear him talk about education the way he did,” Bibb, in her first year in the top office at the school, said. “It was very touching. He was very patient with the students.”

Preparation: Cream margarine, Crisco and sugar well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add flour alternately with milk, begin and end with flour. Add flavorings, beat well. Bake in tube pan at 325 degrees for 1½ hours. Cool in pan for

½ tsp. butter flavoring ½ tsp. almond flavoring Heat the above until sugar dissolves and pour over cake. (Note: If the top is smooth after cooking, I use a toothpick and punch holes before putting the glaze on it. Normally the cake has nice cracks in the top and I don’t have to use the toothpicks.)

Target Marketing adds new 15 jobs, expands in county Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com Target Marketing, a leading promotional marketing company, has announced a significant expansion with the purchase of a 30,000 SF building in the Lakeridge Industrial Park for their new corporate headquarters. The move will expand current operations by 4,000 square feet to accommodate new distribution equipment to meet the demand of a growing customer base. Target Marketing will remain in the Lakeridge Industrial Park. The total investment of the expansion will equal $2 million in building cost, upfit and new equipment. The expansion plans should result with an additional 15 new jobs over the next two years. Target Marketing began its operations in the Richmond Region in 1987, specializes in promotional solutions, incentive & reward campaigns, and promotional products. It works with an expansive client list ranging from small startup businesses to Fortune 500 companies. Clients include Dominion Virginia Power, Carmax, Interbake Foods, Bon Secours, and Virginia Department of Tourism. Consistent growth of his company required President Jay Nathanson to move ware-

housing, distribution, and back office operations to Hanover County in 1995. “We initially choose Hanover’s Lakeridge Industrial Park because of its prime logistical location but soon realized it was accessible to a talented workforce.,” Nathanson said. Today Target Marketing has a staff of 27 employees ranging from account executives and graphic designers, to web developers and fulfillment managers. “It’s great to see our local companies succeed and it’s even better when companies, like Target Marketing, expand and further reinvest in Hanover County” said Cecil R. “Rhu” Harris Jr., Hanover County administrator. Target Marketing will be working with the Virginia Department of Business Assistance in providing training services for all new employees hired through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program. In addition, Target Marketing is assessing Hanover County’s tax abatement program for improvements made to their building. Target Marketing will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony this month to commemorate itsmove as well as its 25th year anniversary.

NPDES permits have limits that facilities should meet. These limits are set using conservative assumptions, the goal being to treat pollutants to a level that is protective of water quality. Permit compliance is shown by testing results. Depending on the facility, more than 600 to over 1,000 tests were run to document compliance. Hanover’s Department of Public Utilities provides water and wastewater service to about 20,500 water customers and 18,500 wastewater customers. It is a self-supporting enterprise fund whose costs are paid for by existing and new customers. For more information about the department, see www. co.hanover.va.us/utilities/ or call 804-365-6024.

Hanover blanks Patriots in season opener, 41-0 By JP Beauchamp for The Mechanicsville Local If the football opener for the Hanover Hawks’ is any indication of what’s coming, look out. Hawks fans are going to be in for a ride. The weather provided a average fall evening; but the intensity of play on the field was anything but moderate when Hanover handed visiting Patrick Henry a 41-0 season opening loss. From the get-go, the Hawks wasted no time setting the tone of the game, then maintained their momentum as it progressed. On the other side, turnovers were a major factor prohibiting Patrick Henry from getting on the board. The dye was cast in the

Patriots’ first possession when Hanover senior defensive back Donte Haynesworth pulled down his first of three interceptions on a Patrick Henry third and 16 pass play.

Jackets christen Day Field with win, 21-6 By Thomas C. Dozier for The Mechanicsville Local Saturday was a special day at Randolph-Macon College as the school dedicated both the John B. Werner Pavilion at the McGrawPage Library and the renovated Day Field. “This is indeed cause for celebration,” said R-MC President Robert R. Lindgren. The Randolph-Macon football team then added an exclamation point to the festivities with an impressive 21-6 win over visiting Averett in front of 2,617 fans.

The renovations, which were made possible through the generous support of alumni, parents, and Yellow Jackets fans, changed the field from an east-west direction to north-south configuration. Other additions included a turf playing surface, stadium lights, new brick walkways, a new press box, visitor stands, and a walking track. Even though the field was positioned differently, the Yellow Jackets’ win proved the program is headed in a familiar direction, as it has been the past eight years under head coach Pedro Arruzaespecially after last week’s lopsided

loss at Johns Hopkins. “The defense played well but we were a little sloppy at times,” Arruza said. “I thought we ran the ball better today and definitely played better on defense. But we are not as good as we should be, but we have a chance to get better the ability is there but the toughness is see JACKETS, pg. 35 ` Frank Straus/For The Local

the Hawks’ defensive force to be reckoned with. “[I was] just playing my hardest for my team and doing whatever I could to make them win,” Haynesworth said. Three minutes and seven short plays later, Hanover senior quarterback Andrew Knizner connected with junior Josh Harris on an 8-yard pass into the end zone. Kicker Jacob Rozsahegyi connected on the first of five extra points…and so it began. The Hawks’ performance brought a plethora of cheers from the swollen ranks of Hanover fans filling the stands as they chanted, “This is our house,” making their expectations of the outcome clear. They were not to be disappointed. “The one thing we wanted was tempo; we had a good job on tempo,” said an excited Hanover head coach Joshua Just. The outcome was not a result of the Pats failure to put in a good effort…they did. They were simply outmatched. With the help of two Hawk penalties, big ground gains from senior running back Otis Harris and a 24-yard run from junior RB Daquan Morris, the Patriots advanced as close as the Hanover’s 16. But then the Hawks’ D-line kicked in, backing the Pats up 15 yards to set up a second Patriot turnover as Mallory came up with his first of two interceptions. However, with the help of a Hanover penalty, Patrick Henry’s defense forced the Hawks to punt without moving the chains. For Just, there is still progress to be made. “I know defensively we had some coverage breakdowns we need to fix up and make sure we improve in those areas,” he said. “So, we’ll take care of that. Offensively [there were] some assignment issues up front we had to go over a couple of times and once

we did, we were fine. Obviously I’d like to get it a little more smooth; but, overall, I was really happy with their effort and the way they went after it today.” Despite the penalties, Hanover’s offense was relentless, and its defense stubborn from a scoring perspective for the Patriots. Hanover senior running back LJ Jones racked up three touchdown runs of 29, 10, and 24 yards respectively. Senior wide receiver Usman Mahmood pulled down a 12-yard TD and to cap off the last of the scoring Lamont Stubbs recovered a blocked punt in the end zone to score. With a big lead, Just had no qualms giving his younger players fourth quarter experience. “Some bad things happened early, I know they had a turnover; we came back and made some great plays defensively,” Just said. “And having things like that was good. We have some great leadership on this team; and we have some fairly good depth on this team. So, I was really happy when some of our younger guys came in at the end, and I thought they did a really good job too.” Just before the half, one

of the smallest players on the Hawks’ team put a mighty hit on Harris and was flagged for talking about it. Hanover was called for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, giving the Pats a first down when they were facing third-and-10. “We just pulled the young man out and talked to him,” Just said. “He made an energy play and I don’t mind aggressive mistakes. I think it’s something you’ll have to watch in the future. But when you have a kid that weighs about 120 lbs make a hit like that, he just didn’t know what to do; he had to say something. He really didn’t say it to the kid...it was where he was standing. He said it to his teammates, and you can’t do that. It was the right call. And the next time he did it, he ran off the field and jumped in and grabbed a teammate. “But when you’re that small, and you make a hit like that, you gotta be a little bit excited. You can celebrate a little,” Just said. Hanover senior quarterback, wide receiver, and linebacker, Sam Rogers, had a huge evening offensively and defensively, making key plays to help shut down Patriot drives and

opening up scoring opportunities for the Hawks, yet, when asked about his performance, he simply gave high praise for his team. “It was just a really good game overall by our team,” he NO. 1 HERMITAGE 35, LEE-DAVIS 7 Niko Johnson threw for 251 yards and four touchdowns and added 90 yards rushing and a score in the Panthers’ victory over the Confederates.

Darrian Henley (11tackles) and Kennsel Anderson (10) led Hermitage’s defense. Chris Simpson’s 130 yards rushing led the Confederates (0-1).

said. “The offensive line did a great job; defensive line did a great job freeing us up to make great plays in the backfield. It was just a great all-around team win. No one person did it.” One key play by Rogers came on Hanover’s third scoring drive. Fresh off yet another PH turnover, Rogers took the handoff then cut back against the flow for a 54-yard gain. “The offensive line did a great job of washing them all to the one side of the play,” Rogers said. “I decided to cut back and it ended up working out. And we got a really good block on the edge there by Trent Underdown, so that was good.” Knizner, who threw two TD passes, also was unwilling to take much credit for his accomplishments of the evening. “I am only as good as my offensive line and my receivers,” he said. “I think the offensive line did a great job. We came out physical, we ran a high tempo, high

energy; and that really contributed to our win.” Still, Knizner was satisfied with his own performance. “I stayed within myself, within my re-progression; and I just did what I was coached.” The victory showed the Hawks are playing as a team, and as such, they are providing a dynamic impetus this football season.

Female future in NASCAR starts with the young By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com NASCAR continually seeks new avenues to increase its fan base and recently the focus has turned towards a younger audience, not only introducing them to NASCAR but educating them on how they can become a part of the sport themselves. Along with the growth of interest in youngsters, the participation among females has steadily increased, but it still has miles to go before reaching the comparable 60-40 male-female demographics of the NASCAR fan base. As little as two decades ago any female desire to be part of NASCAR faced a virtual glass door. Only 16 women have competed on the Sprint Cup level between 1949 and 2012, half of which raced prior to 1955. “It wasn’t long ago that women weren’t invited in the garage,” said veteran NASCAR driver Jeff Burton. “You didn’t see a whole lot of women in the garage. The ones that you saw were women that were working in public relations groups and things like that.” Burton recognized the groundbreaking presence of Janet Guthrie, who had 33 starts between 1976 and 1980, but he also pointed out she was an anomaly. “This was a man’s sport,” Burton said. “Young girls didn’t feel welcome I’m sure. If you have a young generation that looks into the garage and sees no women, you know something has to change.” Likewise, Burton said he felt that it took more than just Guthrie’s presence to make a difference. “You don’t just stop, draw the line and say everybody’s welcome and turn around overnight,” he said. In the 22 years after Guthrie, only five women

Both Patrick and Long are part of an increasing female presence in NASCAR that started with increasing awareness among young girls to future potential in the sport.

have driven on NASCAR’s highest level. But that could be changing. While Danica Patrick has been the lone female driver to compete in the Sprint Cup in the last 17 years, since 2001, 13 women have run in the Nationwide Series and 18 in the Camping World Truck Series. While it is difficult to target exactly what led to change, it can be surmised with the growth and exposure of women’s talents in other sports, such as basketball, soccer and softball, more and more young women began to recognize their potential as competitors. But to match the recognition of ability, there needed to be young women with an interest to compete on the track. For Patrick, the most recognizable female racer today, interest in becoming a driver was actually sparked by a desire to keep up with her older sister Brooke. “My sister wanted to race and I just didn’t want to get left out,” Patrick said.

The Mechanicsville Local Setpember 12, 2012

Patrick also benefited by the fact that her father TJ was a driver. “My dad’s been in racing my whole life, so it was really just something to spend time together on weekends and family and have a family activity,” she said. “It wasn’t for anything other than that and it kind of took on a life of its own. It was really just a family activity.” Likewise, 20-year-old Nationwide up-and-comer Johanna Long grew up under a similar scenario but admitted that her father Donald was reluctant to support her racing, at least at first. However, Donald’s resistance was due to the fact he was often on the road racing late models. “He didn’t really say no but he kind of held it off,” Long said. “When I turned 8 years old he was like, ‘Okay, I’ll slow down racing,’ because he was gone all the time. ‘I’ll slow down, I’ll do it.’ He finally let me get into it and I’ve never looked back since.”

But becoming a driver is not always inherent between fathers and daughters. Burton had no qualms about allowing his daughter Paige to race, but Paige felt differently. “I asked her a hundred times,” Burton said. “I said, ‘Do you want to race?’ ” Paige did not. “She didn’t care about it because she was a girl,” Burton said. “I think she just didn’t care about it.” However, it is apparent that more and more young women do not share Paige’s feelings. Even though she is not far removed from the go-kart ranks herself, Long has noticed a much greater interest among female drivers. “There’s a lot more younger girls getting into it now than when I started racing,” she said. “I don’t remember racing with any females and now they’re starting to come out and getting into go-karts and getting into late models. It’s really cool to see.” Burton said he believes the

solution to greater diversity in NASCAR down the road will derive from the young women of today. “No question, there’s several girls that race with my son (Harrison) and to me that’s the whole key,” Burton said. “We’ve got to have young women that are interested; 6-, 7-, 8-year-olds interested. You get them started early, because if you start when you’re 15, you’re way too far behind.” Patrick is often approached by young girls interested in becoming drivers and she always offers sound advice for entering any sphere of racing. “First off, I tell them, they want to be a driver that’s fine. If they don’t want to be a driver, then find what you like to do,” Patrick said. “That’s the most important thing. “If it is being a driver you just have to have a goal, have a lofty goal that you want and never forget it and just keep taking opportunities,” Patrick said. “Take opportunities to drive for different cars, drive for different people, drive in different parts

of the country. Don’t be afraid to try new things or new places. That’s how you get better. That’s how you learn and that’s how you stumble across the right person that notices you.” The current exposure of female racers such as Patrick and Long further opens the eyes of young women when it comes to their potential in racing. “I feel like a lot of people probably believe it now,” Long said. “They believe it because they see a lot of females out there doing it. You have Danica then you have me in the Nationwide Series and it kind of gives them hope for it because it’s hard to get to this level, it really is. Once you get there you’ve accomplished a lot.” Though there has been substantial growth in the area of attracting females and minorities to NASCAR, the next major obstacle is to remove such labels. Burton feels it will be a long time before such drivers are thought of in terms other than their gender or ethniticity. see FEMALE, pg. 34 `


Gordon edges Busch on wild and wet night Hamlin enters Chase as leader By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon has won four Sprint Cup championships over his long and stellar career but he celebrated second place in the Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond with the same enthusiasm. In a Sprint Cup race that ended six and one half hours after it was scheduled to begin due to multiple rain delays, Gordon saw a year’s worth of highs and lows before edging Kyle Busch by three points to earn the final Wild Card slot for this year’s Chase. “I went from last week being the most disappointed I’ve ever been to finish second to the most excited I’d ever been to finish second tonight,” Gordon said. “Wow, what a race for us. “You can look at this race and all the things that have gone wrong for us this year, everything went right for us tonight,”

he said. Gordon came to Richmond needing to finish 13 spots ahead of Busch in order to make the Chase but the goal seemed impossible for a majority of the race. Gordon started second, passed pole setter and teammate Dale Earnhardt Jr. on the first green flag lap but from that point on his night began going downhill- rapidly. “We just flat out missed the set up at the beginning,” Gordon said. By lap 62, Gordon had dropped to 19th with apparently no hope of making the Chase as Busch continued to

run ahead of him. Though most of the NASCAR world expected chaos to rule as eight drivers scrambled for the two Wild Card spots, it was an exceptionally clean race with only one wreck that involved multiple cars. Ironically, Clint Bowyer, who lost a tire on lap 236 as the result of contact with Juan Pablo Montoya, ended up winning the race. However, the biggest battle for every team was calculating how the weather would affect the outcome and length of the race. Rain delayed the start by 90 minutes then brought on a 51:45 minute red flag stop 139

behind.” When racing resumed, Gordon dropped as far as 31st before everything began to click. Changes made by crew chief Allen Gustafson allowed him to charge up through the pack.

“Luckily, Allen and the engineers got together and found the tools we utilized to make the car better,” Gordon said. Throughout the race, Gordon did not want to be told see CHASE, pg. 34 `

NASCAR Notes from Richmond International Raceway Bad car or bad driver? Defending NASCAR Sprint Cup champion driver Tony Stewart was so disappointed in the performance of his Office Depot Chevy during the first practice in Richmond that he began questioning himself. “I’m starting to question whether somebody else can drive it better than me at this point in the equation,” Stewart said. “I just can’t get it to do what I want it to do at any point.”

Knowing who your fans are When NASCAR driver Ryan Newman was posed a question about fan base statistics, he deferred to a fellow driver, who he considered an expert in the subject field. Newman was asked whether he knew of an increase among young female race fans. The pressure of “I don’t know the demoSprint Cup racing graphics.

The calming effects of fatherhood…or maybe not In July NASCAR driver Kevin Harvick became a father for the first time when his wife DeLana gave birth to their son Keelan. For Harvick, fatherhood has changed his perspective on life in general. “Even when it’s a bad day you go home and he’s happy about having gas,” he said. “He

It doesn’t matter so it’s fun to go home and there’s nothing like holding him your arms and that part is something that I’ve never experienced in my life so that’s a great experience so far. I think it’s made me better at the race track to be around and put things in perspective.” Though historically known for his fits of anger, Harvick feels Keelan’s presence has allowed him to handle situations in a more rational manner. “There are just so many things in my life that are better this year than last year,” Harvick said. “And the beginning of the see NOTES, pg. 34 `

crew had to retighten a loose lug nut and dropped him back in the field barely out of Wild Card contention to finish 16th. “We missed, plain and simple,” said a clearly frustrated Busch afterwards. When Busch stopped on pit road following the race, team owner Joe Gibbs gave him some others. “There’s just not sponsorship dollars that there used to be,” Burton said. “If this was 10 years ago, Johanna Long would be in a good Nationwide team. There used to be development dollars. There were enough sponsors where we could convince sponsors to go take a chance on a young driver -- not spend as much money, get more in return. Today, because of the economy the way it is, we have to take experienced race-winning drivers and put the sponsorship with them because there’s not enough to go around.” At the same time, Burton said he feels women as well as minorities should be gaining support. “The sport is thriving for a female, for a minority,” he said. “It’s thriving for that.” In 49 Nationwide starts, Patrick has a fourth place finish and five top-10s. Long has 15 Nationwide starts in her rookie season and is currently ranked 19th in

Go get that next one. Okay, go get that next one’,” Gordon said. However, when Gordon came up behind Mark Martin, needing to pass the #55 to take second, he sensed something different from his crew chief. “Allen got pretty animated when he said, ‘You’ve got to get the 55. You have to get the 55’,” Gordon said. “I kind of had an idea that would get us in, but he never did say it.” It wasn’t until the race ended that Gordon discovered he’d made the cut. “I felt like I won the race tonight,” Gordon said. “When that was over and they told me

One obstacle towards such equalization stems from the fact that some female drivers, such as Patrick, have gained their popularity by marketing themselves by gender. “She’s really put out there ‘I’m a woman.’ And that’s part of the whole thing about her,” Burton said. “She’s ‘I’m going to be a race car driver’ and ‘Oh, I’m a woman too.’ That’s part of the attraction about her. “We’ve got to get through that barrier,” Burton said. “Now, I’m not saying she’s doing anything wrong, but certainly they don’t promote her the same way they promote Jimmie Johnson and they use her differently. They’ve used her being feminine and being attractive and they’ve used that as part of the marketing. And we’ve got to get through that too . . . I think that’s many years away.” For Long, racing has never

been a matter of gender. “It’s not about being a female in the sport, it’s about having the dedication and the drive to be a driver. I am a female, but it’s something that I love to do and I’ve never looked at myself just as a female driver.” However, marketing and sponsorship for any driver are

Hamlin claimed the top slot heading into the final 10 races of the Chase. Jimmie Johnson, Tony Stewart and Brad Keselowski are second through fourth, three points back.

quick advice before he exited the car. “Handle it the right way,” Busch said Gibbs told him. Busch, who is prone to fits of anger, felt otherwise. “There’s no right way to handle this situation,” he said and refused to address the media further. Facing a greater challenge than Gordon, driver Ryan Newman came to Richmond knowing that a win was his only means of making the Chase. Like Gordon, Newman fell back in the pack but late pit strategy put him in position to take the lead from teammate Tony Stewart with 101 laps to go. However, running on older tires Newman could not maintain the position and finished eighth. Kasey Kahne finished 12th which was good enough to maintain his hold on the first Wild Card slot. With four wins on the season, and 2012 points, Denny

not there yet.” It was in the second half when the Yellow Jackets displayed their dominance as the defense held the visiting Cougars to a mere 29 yards. Meanwhile the R-MC offense rolled to 221 yards thanks in large part to a tremendous game by junior Will McGhee, who returned from defensive back. The 5-10, 185-pounder carried the ball a game-high 25 times for 183 yards. “That is where he belongs (at running back),” Arruza aid. “He is a natural running back and we recruited him as a running back but he had to play him on defense last year. He played hard and with him we were able to run the ball and that is what we do.” Things didn’t go smoothly in the early going for home team. R-MC’s first drive was moving nicely before Averett’s Jagger Johnson and David Stigall hit Yellow Jacket sophomore quarterback Zac Naccarato in the backfield. The ball came loose

and Stigall recovered at the 38 yard line. The Yellow Jacket defense, led by Tom Solak and Michael Weldon, forced the Cougars into a long fourth down situation. But after a R-MC timeout, Averett opted for the fake punt and up-man Owen Hayden went inside for 37 yards to put the Cougars on the Yellow Jackets 15-yard line. The Randolph-Macon defense, which was stout in the red zone all game, held the Cougars to a 21-yard field goal by Ryan Ristaino. R-MC had the answer. Four plays later Naccarato went up the middle and scooted down the left sideline. Aided by a terrific down-field block by Kyle Norton, Naccarato made history by scoring the first touchdown at the newly refurbished Day Field. Norton was rewarded for his effort as he ran in for the two-point conversion and an 8-3 lead R-MC would not relinquish. The Cougars pulled to within two points when Ristaino drilled a 35-yard field goal early in the second quarter, but that

would be as close as the team from the USA South would get. Averett later attempted a 46-yard field goal but it was blocked by Lee-Davis alum Calvin Davis. Defense helped R-MC find their rhythm in the second half. Solak, who finished with six tackles, had a sack along with a sack apiece from Ian Candelaria (game-high seven tackles) Davis and David Fetter (Lee-Davis). “We worked hard and were charged up,” Solak said. “We tried to take control and get the ball back for the offense.” Solak said the fake punt was a concern but only made them dig in more. “We never want to give up any yardage,” Solak added. “So that just made us hold stronger. We were please that we held them to a field goal because we knew if we if we would be quick to the ball on defense we could contain them. And we knew eventually the offense would get going. It is a team effort, and if the defense needs to make the play, we need to make the play. “We knew going in this was going to be a battle and our job on defense was to hold them.

But it all started at practice this week when the No. 1 offense went against the No. 1 defense. They pushed us to stop the run, and I think we helped them work on establishing the run.” Randolph-Macon showed its superiority to start the second half as they crafted their best drive of game. With Naccarato converting on a third-down and a crucial fourth down run, the Yellow Jackets marched 73 yards on 14 plays, and scored on a 6-yard touchdown pass from Naccarato to Conor Moe. Sophomore Clint Herrmann, filling in for injured kicker Josh Storm, connected on the PAT. More importantly for the Yellow Jackets, the seized control of the game. R-MC outgained the visitors 120-34 in the third quarter, outscored them 7-0, and maintained possession for 11 minutes. From there, it was more of the same. Mixing a heavy dose of McGhee and Drake Sanders, the Yellow Jackets quickly marched down the field and scored their final touchdown on a 1-yard plunge by Naccarato to provide the final margin. Naccarato finished the day

73 yards rushing on nine carries and accumulated 102 yards in the air (11-of-16) while Sanders finished with 68 yards on 19 carries. “We really complement each other,” McGhee said of Sanders. “He is constantly motivated me to hit the holes had and we both are agile and have similar running styles.” Naccarato’s favorite target of the day was junior wide receiver Christian Cook, who hauled in five passes for 42 yards. The Yellow Jackets are back in action, hosting Bethany (W.Va.) on Saturday at 1 p.m. The Cougars are back at home against Guilford. The bad news for RandolphMacon, Fred Mitchell Award nominee, kicker Josh Storm, will probably have an MRI of his knee to determine the extent of his knee injury.

What to do about pesky floor squeaks and creaks o you ever feel like you’re trying to avoid tripping off an alarm as you’re carefully tiptoe through your living room? Except instead of an alarm, you’re hoping not to trigger that familiar creak or groan of the floorboards. It’s happened to everybody, and at times it wakes up the newborn (or anyone else who is asleep), interrupts home-office calls, and lets everyone in the house know about your midnight snack run to the fridge. Sound familiar? If so, you probably assumed a squeaky floor was something you’d have to live with. Contrary to popular belief, however, a squeak in the floor is relatively easy to repair. One product that makes this home improvement so simple is Squeeeeek No More, a squeaky floor elimination kit that works on carpeted, vinyl and hardwood floors, and is available at Home Depot. It used to be that home improvement experts advised only going underneath a floor to fix a creaky floorboard. However, second floors cannot be repaired this way, due to the first floor ceiling. Your grandparents probably advised using talcum powder, liquid wax or powdered soap between the floorboards of that hardwood floor to stop it from squeaking. With new products, all of these old-fashioned remedies can be forgotten. There is no need to lift up any carpet or floorboards and the task can be performed on top of the flooring. All it takes is a power drill and the provided hardware from the kit. Squeaks occur when shrinks and gaps develop around different flooring elements. For example, in most creaky floors,

Fall Home: A Special Supplement to The Mechanicsville Local

a nail that was used to fasten the floor has become loose and a squeak happens as a result of the nail rubbing on the sub floor. It’s also possible that wooden planks have loosened from the joist below them and are rubbing against one another. For homeowners with carpeted floors, Squeeeeek No More uses a tool that will find the location of the floor joists from above the floor. After locating the joists, an alignment and depth-control fixture allows you to drill through the carpet with one of the provided screws into the joist where the squeak exists. The screw will tighten the floor planks back onto the joist without ruining the floor or having to go underneath it. The alignment fixture has a screw gripper on one side that will snap off the screw head so there are no dangerous nails or screws sticking out of the carpet. Doing away with creaky floors can be a big aid when it comes time to sell a home. There is nothing more unattractive to prospective home buyers than noisy squeaks and creaks coming from the floor. By eliminating squeaks, you’ll be able to keep potential buyers’ attention focused on the beauty of your home. Parents with babies or small children will also appreciate giving their little ones a good night’s rest, free from loud creaks. More importantly, hungry members of the household will finally be able to reach the refrigerator at midnight without waking up the entire household. For more information about Squeeeeek No More, call (800) 459-8428 or visit www.stopfloorsqueaks.com.

There is nothing more unattractive to prospective home buyers than noisy squeaks and creaks coming from the floor.


Bathroom remodels that look like a million bucks — for $1,000 or less —

1. Redo walls and floors The key to bringing this job in under $1,000 is to do the work yourself. The actual materials – paint for the walls and tile, stone or vinyl for the floor – can be purchased for a relatively low cost. By doing the work yourself, you avoid high labor charges. Most bathrooms require only a gallon or two of paint, so you can easily stay on budget even if you purchase a high-end brand. It’s also possible to find plenty of cost-effective flooring options, from luxury materials like marble to more economical ones such as ceramic tile or vinyl. After the materials, your second biggest investment for this project will be the time it takes to learn how to do the job right. Fortunately, you’ll find plenty of educational material online and many home improvement stores even offer free classes in how to lay new floors.

2. Switch out the shower door After the walls and floor, the shower door is probably the third largest surface – and design element – in your bathroom. Unless your home was custom-built, chances are your shower door is bland and basic, albeit functional. Replacing a plain shower door with one that features a design, pattern or frosting can add personal flair

to a bathroom. Manufacturers like Sterling offer a variety of shower doors that are both beautiful and functional, including patterned shower doors. In addition, Sterling’s frameless doors feature the company’s trademarked ClearCoat technology, which creates a barrier between the water and glass to keep the door looking pristine and new. Prices vary depending on the style of door you choose, but you’ll find many budgetfriendly options.

3. Swap out the shower enclosure Cracked, chipped ceramic tile or an old, stained shower enclosure can make your bathroom look tired, dated and dirty. Replacing the shower enclosure can give the room a whole new look. Plus, if you only have a tub and would like to add a shower, an enclosure is a fast, easy and cost-effective way to achieve your goal. Or if a tub doesn’t suit your design and lifestyle needs, you can replace it with a shower enclosure. Products like Sterling Ensemble Curve shower enclosures are sized to fit standard 5-foot bath alcove spaces, and installation doesn’t require you to move the drain location. Replacing a tub with an enclosure makes for a spacious, luxurious showering experience. The Sterling products start for less than $700.

THE ALBANY $109,950 Built on your land Shown with Some Options

4. Update fixtures Few bathroom upgrades have a greater impact on efficiency and beauty the way changing fixtures can. Whether you opt for a lowflow showerhead or a high-efficiency toilet that requires less water to flush, replacing older fixtures can update the look of a bathroom and yield long-term savings on utility bills. With abundant color, shape and design options in everything from commodes to sinks, faucets to shower controls, it’s possible to find fixtures that suit every design taste – and price point. Smart shoppers can find budget-friendly options that will allow them to replace more than one item, giving a bathroom a fresh look and feel. Virtually any upgrade you make in a bathroom can enhance the value – and your enjoyment – of the space. Fortunately, with some doit-yourself savvy and the right products, you can make your bathroom look and feel like a million dollars without spending a bundle. – ARA

he average cost of a bathroom remodel tops $16,500, according to Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value report. But you don’t have to spend the average to achieve above-average results when it comes to updating a bathroom. Generally, people renovate or remodel bathrooms for two main reasons: to boost their home’s resale value, and to enhance their own enjoyment of the room. A bathroom renovation yields a 62 percent return on investment at the time of resale, Remodeling Magazine’s report indicates. How much more will you enjoy that ROI – and the improved livability of your bath – if your initial investment was just $1,000, rather than tens of thousands? Fortunately, the bathroom is one room in the house where you can accomplish a lot with $1,000. Here are four updates and upgrades that cost less than 10 Ben Franklins, but can leave you feeling like a million bucks when you step into your new bath.

Improving the health of your lawn L et’s face it: When you live in the suburbs, a healthy, well-kept lawn is a must. Before anyone even steps into your house, it’s your front lawn that makes the first impression of your home. So what’s something that can help keep your lawn healthy? Many people seem to forget about aeration. Aeration, or aerification, is a method of perforating your lawn with small holes to allow for more water circulation and oxygen flow to the soil and roots. Aeration can help fix lawn challenges like poor drainage or gas exchange, soil compaction, layering in the soil profile, heavy soil in the root zone, and thatch. It’s one of the best conditional processes you can do for your lawn, and is absolutely essential in restoring a worn lawn. “From a grass health perspective, it’s probably the single most valuable thing you can do for a lawn along with mowing, watering and fertilizing,” says Ross Hawley, marketing manager for Toro. “Aerating leads to healthier, stronger lawns, which minimizes weeds and pest problems.” So how often should you aerate your yard? It depends on where you live, and the soil conditions of your yard. According to Hawley, aeration tends to be done in the spring, when the grass is coming out of winter dormancy, or in the fall, after the stress of summer and root movement. Aeration is more effective when there are higher levels of moisture in the ground, because you can pull deeper cores than with dry ground. It’s generally

Fall Home: A Special Supplement to The Mechanicsville Local

Before anyone even steps into your house, it’s your front lawn that makes the first impression of your home. recommended that you water your lawn a day before aerating, and watering it again once the job is done. So how can you get your lawn aerated? More and more contractors are adding aeration to their list of services, seeing the benefits of aeration on lawns and sports fields, particularly golf courses. However, with the right equipment, it’s easy to learn the process and do the job yourself. Aerators come in different models, some similar to a lawnmower that it doesn’t take long to get a feel for the equipment. Most aerators have simple-touse controls and can be operated by the average property owner. There’s also no need to get a

September 12, 2012

license to operate the equipment, but the operator should be sure they understand how to use it so they are getting the best results for their lawn. Aerating equipment, although easy to learn to use, can be costly for the average homeowner who is only using it once a year. A basic, mechanically driven “starter” aerator still costs around $2,000, with higher-quality hydraulic aerators running between $3,000 and $5,000. Fortunately, aerators are available to rent from most equipment rental stores. “Because aerators are pretty easy for a homeowner to handle, it can make a lot of sense for them to do their aeration them-

selves, and the easiest and most cost-effective way to do that is to rent equipment when you need it,” says Anna Foster, rental product marketing manager at Toro. “In fact, a great way to save is to get a pool together with your neighbors. Everyone can chip in on renting the aerator for a day, and it can just be passed along. “Aerating can be hard work, which is why many people choose to have a professional handle it,” Foster continues. “If you are going to tackle it by yourself, selecting the right aerator can help cut down on how labor-intensive the job is.” Foster encourages homeowners to look for brands they are familiar with when renting an aerator. “At Toro, we’ve adapted the same controls we have on our mowers to our aerators. This helps cut down on the learning curve on an unfamiliar piece of equipment.” – ARA


Easy carpet cleaning tips and tricks from the experts

Create a vacuum schedule Have you ever wondered if vacuuming really makes a difference? Removing soil when it’s on the surface, before it gets tramped down, is the first and most important step in carpet maintenance. Use slow, repetitive motions that overlap (about four swipes), ensuring you get right up to the edges where dust, pollen and pet dander like to

accumulate. How often do you need to vacuum? That answer may surprise you. Generally once a week with a CRI-certified vacuum is a good place to start, but depending on how frequently the area is used, you’ll likely want to do it more often. For example, hightraffic or pet areas should be vacuumed daily, medium-traffic areas require about twice a week and light-traffic areas can be done once a week. Just as you wouldn’t wear a shirt over and over again without washing it, you don’t want to go too long between vacuuming your carpets.

Treat stains the correct way

such as a change in color. For coffee or tea stains, try mixing 1 cup white vinegar with 1 cup water. For ink stains, apply rubbing alcohol to a cloth and blot. Have a wax spill? Cover the spot with a clean brown paper bag or heavy brown paper and apply low heat from an iron. The paper will absorb the wax as it melts.

Approval Service Provider. Find one near you by visiting www. carpet-rug.org. If you’ve never had your carpets professionally cleaned, now is a great time to start before the holidays arrive. Start by getting bids and don’t be afraid to ask questions. A good carpet cleaning should include vacuuming, a pre-spray and routine spot removal. Many won’t charge for furniture removal either. Whether you want to get in a better habit with routine carpet maintenance or you simply want to refresh your carpet for the change of seasons or a special event, these tips will keep your carpet and home looking wonderful today and long into the future. – ARA

s the weather cools and daylight hours shorten, families tend to spend more time inside. After a long summer of open windows, sticky treats and constant activity in and out the door, you might notice that your carpets are looking a bit drab. Keeping carpets clean might seem like a daunting task, but with some tips from the experts it’s quicker and easier than you think. Carpet provides good traction, absorbs noises, and saves homeowners money because it naturally insulates a room. And, contrary to popular misconceptions, carpet that is cleaned regularly is fine for people with allergies, and even asthma. The best practice for keeping carpets consistently clean is having a regular maintenance routine. Refreshing carpets after a special event, season of tough use, or simply any time of year is easy with these tips from the experts at the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI), a national carpet trade association that focuses on science-based research, customer advocacy and environmental initiatives.

Five ways to save on home improvement projects

W

ith the economy still struggling, money is tight for many homeowners. That reality can present a problem to those who want to improve their homes without spending too much money. The cost of a home improvement project depends on a host of factors, including the scale of the project and the availability of materials. Upscale projects like a full roof replacement will set homeowners back a substantial amount of money. In its 20112012 “Cost vs. Value Report,” Remodeling magazine revealed that the average cost of a such a project was nearly $38,000. However, a smaller project like a garage door replacement could

be completed for fewer than $3,000. When deciding if a home improvement project is within your budget, it’s a good idea to consult such figures before choosing a project. For example, if your home is a fixer-upper, then one project may not be more urgent than another, something that may allow you to choose less expensive projects now while saving money for more expensive projects down the road. It’s also important for homeowners to know that figures such as those in the “Cost vs. Value Report” are just averages. Some projects might cost more than the average, while others might come in well under budget. To ensure your project is one

of the latter and not the former, consider the following ways to trim costs off your next home improvement project.

Avoid the DIY movement if you don’t have adequate experience Many homeowners fall into the DIY trap, feeling they can pull off a project without hiring a professional contractor. While this is an option for those homeowners with home improvement experience, it’s an approach that’s best avoided by those without such experience. Homeowners who decide to go it alone on a home improvement project should know that mistakes are costly. One mistake could have you paying for the same materials twice: once when you begin the project, and then again when you need to hire a contractor after your efforts didn’t work out. A failed DIY project also costs you time, something homeowners hoping to sell their homes post-project cannot afford to waste.

Hire the right contractor The best contractor for the job won’t necessarily be the one who comes in with the lowest estimate. The right contractor will know how long a project will take and what the materials will cost. The wrong contractor, who might lack the experience of his competitors, might make empty promises that ultimately cost you more money via overrun costs. Find a contractor who comes highly recommended and is willing to provide references and show you his or her past projects

The cost of a home improvement project depends on a host of factors, including the scale of the project and the availability of materials.

Another way to save is to choose projects that provide a strong return on your investment.

Consider supplying your own materials If you diligently research your project, you should be able to buy the materials yourself, even if you plan on hiring a contractor to do the work. Some contractors mark up the materials as a means of padding the bill. If you research the project and learn about the materials you want to use, you can save a substantial

How to winterize your lawn

E

very weekend of the last few months you have spent mowing, weeding, edging, and trimming your lawn so that it will look its best. In order to ensure your lawn makes a complete recovery after winter hibernation, you may want to spend the fall taking steps to help your lawn survive the winter months ahead. Winterizing a lawn varies depending on where you live and how harsh a typical winter is. There are certain key tasks to complete before you can rest for the winter season.

Remove fallen leaves and debris Leaf cleanup is among the tasks homeowners dread the most. Raking leaves can be arduous, but it is well worth the effort. Fallen leaves can smother the grass and lead to dead spots and decay next season. Wait until the majority of the leaves have fallen from the trees before you begin to rake; otherwise, you could find yourself repeating the process throughout the fall. Mulched leaves can be added in small amounts to garden beds to provide rich organic material for next year’s crop of flowers. Be sure to pick up any twigs and other debris as well. Additional debris can become up trapped under snow and hinder grass growth when spring arrives.

Cut your lawn short Unless the season is unseasonably wet and warm, your lawn shouldn’t grow too much in October and November. Continue to cut your lawn until there is no visible growth for about two weeks. It pays to give it a short cut before frost arrives so that long piles of dead grass will not smother any new growth in the spring. Also, long grass tends to bend down upon itself, trapping moisture that can lead to fungal diseases like snow mold.

Consider a slow-release formula designed for winterizing that will feed the lawn all winter long.

Edge the garden beds Take advantage of the cooler weather and slowgrowing grass to re-edge around flower beds. Even though the grass above the surface of the soil will stop growing, the roots will remain viable and the lawn will still be sending out rhizomes and tillers to produce new grass blades in the spring. These can easily encroach on garden beds. Edge now so you will have less work to do in the spring.

Trim hedges and trees

If there are any overhanging tree branches or shrubbery blocking sunlight from reaching the lawn, cut back these areas once the foliage has thinned.
