Latin and Caribbean influences set Pescados seafood apart BY AMANDA GALLOWAY special correspondent


wner and chef, Todd Manley, grew up on Italian cooking, and saw an Italian restaurant in his future before a special college professor changed everything. “I came up doing Italian. I guess during college I fell in love with Latin American food. I had a professor who loved home cooking and Puerto Rican cooking. I think that’s when I decided to do something different,” Manley explained. With his former professor fueling his inspiration, Manley opened Pescados in the Village Marketplaces Center on Midlothian Turnpike eight years ago. The seafood restaurant boasts an impressive menu of Latin and Caribbean inspired foods. “I guess it was the creative impetus. I woke up one day and had this idea,” he explained, of his decision to open his own restaurant. PESCADOS P2


Margaret Carlini, Henricus education supervisor, explains how Virginia Indians made use of all their resources inside a newly built longhouse called a "Yehakin." The structure was built by volunteers Pernell Richardson of the Haliwa-Saponi, Bill Gibson, and Terry Price of the Cherokee with the advice of Terry's father Delbert Price and the help of the Price family: wife Annette, son Terry, grandson Luke, and daughter Denise Hite. The structure frame was made with black locust wood.

PESCADOS from P1 “A lot of people don’t know the history behind it, but when Vasco da Gama came to Latin America and the Caribbean, he opened up the area to all these other countries. As for food, it became the melting pot of the world with this influx of flavors,” Manley said. He went on to explain that the famous Portuguese explorer opened the area to Indian, Asian, and a variety of other cuisines, all which make appearances in his food. As a result, Manley insists on a high level of originality in the food he and his chefs create. “I think we are very talented in terms of cooks. We specialize in guys who know how to treat our product. They are all so creative. I consider them artists,” Manley said. In addition to hand picking the top chefs, Manley relies on the freshest, environmentally friendly seafood on the market. “We use wild caught shrimp instead of farm raised. This eliminates a lot of the chemicals that can be

found in farm raised seafood. We do that with all of our seafood. It is caught on bay boats in Virginia and Maryland,” he said. Manley opts for bay boats for environmental reasons. These boats specialize in specific types of fish, instead of the boats that use giant nets that bring all types of sea life to the surface. Pescados’ weekly specials reflect this type of fishing, as the type of fish to be served is not known until the fisherman catch it the day before. “The fishermen call me and ask ‘do you have room for this type of fish?’ and that’s how we do our fish specials, as literally the fishermen’s latest catch. It makes you be on your toes, and really gets your creative juices flowing, since you have a short period of time to put together a recipe,” Manley explained. Manley gets the rest of his menu from local farms, including Manakintowne Specialty Growers in Powhatan. The local farm, owned and operated by the Pendergraph family, provides Pescados with herbs, greens, and fresh

vegetables. “I shop local because I like to know that my food and my fish are cared for, and that the environment is cared for,” Manley said. Thanks to the success of the Midlothian Pescados, Manley opened a second location in Oregon Hill this year. “I don’t sleep much anymore, but I feel like a kid in kindergarten. I’m that excited to do my job every day,” Manley said. “Both of my restaurants are eclectic, but inviting; and I like to think we have some of the best specials in Richmond.” At the Midlothian location, Tuesday is taco night, with two fish tacos, coconut black beans, and achiote rice for $10. Thursday is “cheap date night,” featuring two meals, wine, and desert. Every Monday, the restaurant features a fundraiser for a local charity. Pescados is open for lunch Monday through Friday from 11:30 – 2 pm. They are open for dinner Monday through Thursday, 5 – 10 pm, and Friday and Saturday 5 – 10:30 pm. They are closed Sunday.


Chesterfield Senior Center honors advocate, member Edith Smith BY LATIKA LEE special correspondent


dith Smith is the epitome of a lady. She is well-spoken, fashionably dressed, and keeps an immaculate home. She lunches leisurely with friends and sips afternoon tea from dainty teacups. And at a time in life when some women might not share their age, at 85, Smith rejoices in it. The retired school teacher and principal, who worked in the District of Columbia Public Schools for more than 40 years, moved to Midlothian in 2003 to be closer to one of her three daughters, then an administrator at J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College. “To move here in my senior years without any connection other than my daughter, I don’t know what I would have done without the senior center of Chesterfield,” said Smith, “I’ve had such a rich and enjoyable life here, something for which I am very grateful to God.” Smith is grateful for the Chesterfield Senior Center.

Edith Smith will be honored at a luncheon at the Chesterfield Senior Center on Friday, Sept. 10.

In retirement, Smith has been a passionate advocate for services for senior citizens. After its facilities closed at John Tyler Community College’s Featherstone professional center, senior county residents didn’t have a regular place to meet and participate in organized activities. Smith, along with a steadfast task force committee including dedicated board member Jeff Davoud, took on the massive project of securing a “home” for the senior center. Smith is also grateful for Ann Duffer’s advocacy in promoting the center with county officials and others. Duffer, a long-time Midlothian resident, died earlier this year. “She worked in a totally unselfish way. She was one of the most loving and gracious people. She listened to what was needed and found the funds that needed for it to be done based on her love and respect for those of us that went to the center,” she said. Although the Chesterfield Senior Center has relocated several times, it still maintains its core identity. They developed collaborative partnerships that provide services for Chesterfield County seniors including Senior Connections, local church programming and the academic opportunities at the Lifelong Learning Institute. Smith added that the support of the Board of Supervisors has been a positive direction for all seniors in Chesterfield. Within the last three years, the center’s task force has registered as a non-profit organization, sought and received public funding, and increased awareness about

accessibility for seniors. The center has also found a home at Episcopal Church of Our Savior, located at 4000 Stigall Drive in Midlothian, and secured, in a partnership with the county Parks and Recreation Department, a part-time staff member. The Chesterfield Senior Center offers daily activities, monthly events and yearly functions for active seniors over the age of 50. From boat trips, to ice cream socials to dancing and picnics, there is always a social gathering taking place where seniors can relax, have fun and meet new people. “I hope to see an America that will build such senior centers like that which has begun here, which will be replicated across the U.S. in the future,” Smith said. She says she hopes to see a marvelous center built here in Chesterfield that serves seniors as it serves now with even broader services in the future, such as with transportation. Now that a home for the center has come to fruition, there is another transition taking place. In a few weeks, Smith will be moving to an independent living facility in Rappahannock. “My daughter retired a few months ago and lives an hour and a half away from here,” said Smith, “she no longer has a reason to come to Richmond area every day. That’s why I’m moving, so I can be closer to her.” Center volunteer Martha Dockery added,”To show our appreciation, we’re planning a farewell luncheon in her honor,” Dockery said. “We’re going to miss her deeply … The center has truly benefitted from her love.”

Midlothian Latin Club received 2nd place overall in the publicity contest during the Naitonal Latin Convention. Above photo was taken during the Roman procession at the end of the convetion held at North Dakota State University in Fargo.

In late July, Midlothian High School students SydneyJean Gottfried, Bryan Kauder and I participated in the 57th National Junior Classical League Convention at North Dakota State University in Fargo. This year’s national convention was full of fun and entertaining events that ranged from “olympika” competitions to creative and graphic arts contests where students had the opportunity to display their artistic talents. In addition, there were many seminars that students could attend. Students also participated in academic competitions such as testing sessions in order to test their knowledge of Latin, Greek and Roman culture. Each night, there were also many activities to attend such as movies, bowling, dances and even a talent show. On the last day of convention, students from each state dressed

up in their Roman attire and participated in a procession around the campus. Afterwards, there was a large Roman banquet where the students enjoyed delicious food. Every day, each state had the opportunity to participate in 15-minute spirit competitions. The theme of each day prompted the states to come up with creative t-shirts and props to reflect the theme. The spirit competitions were especially exhilarating and Virginia took home first place for the eighth year in a row. Not only did the state as a whole compete well, but Midlothian’s Latin Club received 2nd place overall in the publicity contest. The Latin Club’s newsletter also received 3rd place in the nation. After a long week at the convention, the entire delegation had learned the valuable lessons of communication,

cooperation and friendship. Each individual took home with him or her a sense of fulfillment along with a desire to return the next year. Overall, National Latin Convention is one of the best experiences that any student could participate in. Next year’s convention will be held at Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond, Ky. During the fall, there is also a statewide Latin Convention which students are invited to attend. Many students from the Midlothian area come to this convention where they have the chance to represent their school and participate in many different contests and competitions. This year’s state convention will be held at the Richmond Convention Center on November 21-22.

ost sat in silence last week during the press conference held at the local mosque while hearing a procession of local Christian, Muslim and Jewish leaders condemn violence and bigotry. Since the proposal of a mosque being built at ground zero in New York City has become a national controversy, there have been several violent acts against Muslims around the country. The leaders voiced reasonable concern that such acts that are inflamed with fear and intolerance will only increase as the nation gets closer to the November election. Each leader condemned such rhetoric and called for a return to civility. Afterwards, I found myself wondering if I had been completely naïve in perceiving the permeating underlying anger that has been resonating among us only related to the unusually warm temperature this summer. The uneasiness continues regardless of the weather. Its name is fear. We are all living in fear. Fear of tomorrow. Fear of failure. Fear of our kids’ future. Fear of losing the house. Fear of violence. Fear of not being good enough. Fear of not having enough. Fear of not being liked. Fear of losing the job. Fear of losing a loved one. Fear of losing everything. Fear of being rejected. Fear of death. And fear of the unknown. Are we truly a hateful group of bigots who wonder aimlessly in fear? I believe that we, as a people, are not a group of bigots. We are, however, seeing our faiths – all of them – being hijacked for political posturing and media sound bites. The cacophony is creating an atmosphere of palpable fear. We should not be afraid to ask any question and we should not be afraid to hear the answers. The current rhetoric is not healthy for a nation or community; civil debate and disagreement is healthy government. . We need to remember our Constitution’s First Amendment: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” The above is a powerful and all encompassing freedom that I hold dear. We are empowered to follow the faith of our choosing and so much more. Ask international exchange students what their thoughts are about Richmond’s numerous places of worship and you’ll get a similar response. Each student, regardless of which continent he or she hails from, is surprised that the same geographical area has Catholic, Baptist, Presbyterian and United Methodist churches interspersed with a synagogue and a mosque. As an American citizen, I don’t even think twice about it. With the ninth anniversary of 9/11 this weekend, it is hopeful that we will be not afraid to shake this nauseating, unfounded current fear from our shoulders. May we find peace and unity in a pledge that is recited each day across our country: “One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

Volunteers construct a lean-to at the Virginia Indian site at Henricus.

medicinal demonstrations, Virginia Indian activities, historical children’s games and crafts and storytelling. For many years in the 20th century, Henricus was completely neglected. Midlothian author and very special teacher for whom Bettie W. Weaver Elementary School is named, Bettie Weaver remembers visiting Henricus in the late 1940s with Rosalie (Mrs. John Morgan) Applegate when “we had to beat our way uphill to that large cross at the top after getting permission in advance from VEPCO (Virginia Electric & Power Company, now Dominion). We were appalled at the abandonment of the place.” Gaining attention and support for Henricus over the intervening 60 years has taken far longer than the period from 1611- when Sir Thomas Dale moved up the James River, on behalf of the London Company, to establish the settlement -- to the 1622 Indian attack that wiped out the settlement. It is the hope of the acting executive, Charles Lewis Grant, that the anniversary will “get Henricus on the historical map and fill in the timegap.” He points out, “What you normally see is ‘Jamestown 1607’ and then ‘Plymouth 1620’ – and something very important happened between those years. Had Henricus not succeeded from 1611 to 1622, the English colonization of North America would have been dealt a chilling blow.” Just as present arguments exist by experts about whether to put more or less money into stimulating the economy, so some members of Great Britain’s early 17th-century Parliament felt the Crown was throwing good money after bad by establishing Henricus in 1611. After all, Jamestown had only been rescued by an act of chance when Sir Thomas Dale arrived after “the starving time” of 1609-10, persuading settlers to stay on rather than throwing in the towel and returning to England. Despite the fact that the Henricus colonists who survived the 1622 massacre virtually abandoned their citie, consolidating with survivors at Jamestown, they had lasted long enough for the Plymouth Colony to gain a strong foothold in Massachusetts, thus proving North America was a viable area for settlement – and investment.

Dr. Vic's Q & A: Golfers' elbow Question: I am a 50-yearold man suffering from what seems to be golfers’ elbow. I have mostly been icing it at home. What is the best way for me to get back to golfing, and what are some options that I might explore in regards to treatment? Answer: “Golfer’s elbow” is tendonitis on the inner part of the elbow while “tennis elbow” is tendonitis of the outer part of the elbow. Interestingly I actually see more patients with these conditions that do not play either golf or tennis. Tendonitis usually occurs from repetitive activity where extra stress is placed on a particular tendon. The overuse causes microscopic tears within the tendon. In normal situations these tears will heal without any treatment. When they don’t heal you are left with symptoms of tendonitis which are primarily pain, weakness and sometimes stiffness. Since you are a golfer you should have a golf pro look at your club grips. In general, a larger grip will reduce stress to the elbow when

you make contact with the ball. Also, consider whether you have made any recent changes in your swing or if you have been playing much more than normal. The standard treatment for tendonitis is rest, ice, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications and exercises. In some cases a tennis/golf elbow strap that fits just below the elbow can be beneficial. A variety of specific stretching and strengthening exercises can treat and prevent recurrence. To view these exercises you can visits the patient education section at You can begin the stretching immediately but should wait for strengthening until your symptoms of pain decrease. When I see patients in the office with tennis elbow, I will also discuss options of cortisone and platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections. Cortisone is a strong steroid that will reduce or eliminate inflammation. On the inner part of the elbow (i.e. golfer’s elbow), I generally ELBOW P6

Titans top Trojans in Silver Division final at annual Volleyball Showcase BY JIM MCCONNELL special correspondent


lover Hill’s road to the 2009 Group AAA state boys volleyball championship included a seven-round slugfest with Dominion District rival Cosby. The heavyweights traded blows all season before the senior-dominated Cavaliers landed a knockout punch in the state final. Cosby and Midlothian appear to be on a similar collision course this season. While it’s still far too early to know whether either team is state tournament material, the Titans are feeling good about themselves after beating the Trojans twice in the first week of the 2010 season – including a 25-15, 25-16 victory Saturday in the Silver Division final at the 13th annual Virginia Volleyball Showcase. “We were already a team before this tournament, but being able to see how well we can work together gives us high hopes for the rest of the season,” said Cosby’s Ben Morrison, who had three blocks and 23 assists against Midlothian. Forty-eight teams (32 girls, 16 boys) participated in this year’s Showcase, which was held for the first time at Richmond Volleyball Club’s cavernous 12-court indoor facility in Henrico County. With matches being played on all 12 courts simultaneously, referees’ whistles chirping every couple seconds and spectators squeezing into tight spaces between courts, it was a hectic scene unlike anything the high school teams will see for the rest of the season. “You get a lot of volleyball in a short period of time,” Cosby boys coach Frank Jenkins said. “There are a lot of distractions, which is good because it really forces the kids to focus and communicate.” Cosby’s fifth-place finish was tops among local schools. Midlothian’s boys placed sixth, followed by James River (seventh) and Trinity Episcopal (14th). On the girls side, Midlothian placed eighth in the Red Division and Cosby was 15th. James River’s girls finished ninth in the White Division. Cosby’s boys are no stranger to success at this event. Titans finished first in 2007 and were runners-up each of the last two years (to eventual state champions Deep Run and Clover Hill, respectively. This is not the same Cosby team. Only two of six starters returned from last season. And yet, after beating Hermitage (25-11, 25-9, 25-13) and Varina (25-13, 25-21, 25-22) in Friday’s Pool B matches, the Titans opened play Saturday morning with an opportunity to win their pool and advance to the semifinals of the Gold (championship) Division. Despite playing without dangerous hitter Jack Wilson, who missed the match because of a family commitment, Cosby hung Photo Gallery ONLINE tough against Ocean Lakes of Virginia Beach. A few key points decided each of the first two games, but Ocean Lakes won both by scores of 25-23 and 26-24 to claim the Pool B PHOTO BY KENNY MOORE title.

Trinity dominates at home in invitational tournament BY JIM MCCONNELL special correspondent

After watching her players repeatedly squander scoring opportunities during the first half Tuesday, Aug. 31, against Prince George, Trinity Episcopal field hockey coach Margie Snead knew the Titans’ 2-0 lead should’ve been much larger. Trinity added two more goals in the second half to complete a 4-0 victory and reach the final of its own four-team, season-opening invitational tournament. Still, Snead wasn’t satisfied. While Prince George and Colonial Heights squared off in the consolation game, Snead gathered her team together in the Photo Gallery ONLINE student commons and emphasized the fundamentals that so often PHOTO BY PATRICK DOBBS make the difference between Trinity’s Sage Parker surges past Powhatan’s Sarah Bennet (#5) and Malerie Howland (#16). merely generating chances to score and turning those with a 10-0 victory. it’s not enough to just get three minutes to give Trinity chances into goals. “This sets the bar.

Even more encouraging for the Titans was the fact that all 21 players on the roster got into both games, and the team maintained its high level of play despite frequent substitutions. “We’re gelling as a team and starting to trust each other,” Carls added. With only two seniors on the roster, the impressive start can only help Trinity’s confidence as the season marches onward. “This tournament was to see what kind of team we can be,” said junior Nina Stinson, who helped lead Trinity’s defense to back-toback shutouts. “Today proved we’re going to be one heck of a team.” Trinity placed four players on the all-tournament team: Carls, Cravens, Upadhayaya and freshman Cammie Lloyd. Powhatan was represented by juniors Maddie Zatkulak, Jennifer Redmond and Sarah Bennett, while Prince George (Hannah Taylor and Kristalea Sheaffer) and Colonial Heights (Paxton Rosser and Megan Benton) had two players apiece.

ELBOW from P5 do not recommend cortisone because the tendon is close to the ulnar nerve (i.e., “funny bone” nerve). PRP, however, can be used for both golfer’s and tennis elbow. For PRP, blood is drawn from your arm and then spun in a centrifuge to separate the plasma from the cells. The plasma part of the blood that contains nutrients and growth factors is injected into the tendon. This process is thought to promote healing of the microscopic tears. If these treatments fail then surgery is an option. Tennis and golfer’s elbow surgeries are both outpatient procedures. Afterwards, patients wear a sling for 1-2 weeks. They begin physical therapy 1 week after surgery and continue exercises for 612 weeks. Most patients can begin putting and chipping at 4-6 weeks, short swings at 6-10 weeks and full swings by 12 weeks. courtesy of Dr. Vic Goradia, MD Knee, Shoulder & Sports Medicine Specialist Go Orthopedics
