‘Mary on the Mend’ event will raise funds for resident brutalized in January attack By Roslyn Ryan Editor

After Powhatan teacher Mary Anderson was brutally attacked in her home last January, residents quickly rallied to support her. A fund was set up in her honor, and Anderson’s colleagues and students began trying to come up with a way to help Anderson begin to put her life back together. Now, as Anderson continues to recover from her injuries, the Powhatan Fair Association has partnered with the Powhatan High School Interact Club to host the Mary on the Mend benefit. The event will be held on March Anderson 24, from noon-4 p.m. and will feature music, food and plenty of games and activities, with all of the proceeds going to the Mary Anderson Fund. According to organizers, the event grew from a meeting between the Fair Association’s Randa Jackson and the UPDATE: Powhatan High School James Wolfe, Interact Club.

Powhatan’s Paranormal Investigators seek to make contact with those who have gone before us

Two years ago Pam Townsend, a nurse originally from Dolphin, Virginia, started Powhatan Paranormal Investigations. Encouraged by the success of TV shows like Ghost Hunters and radio programs like Richmond’s Ghost Raps, Townsend decided to assemble her own ghost-hunting team right here in Powhatan. Last week she sat down with PT reporter Emily Darrell to discuss the most haunted spots in Powhatan, whether supernatural beliefs conflict with religious beliefs, and how to commune with the dead through use of Maglites.

For you what does paranormal include? How would you define

paranormal activity? Anything that can’t readily be explained by something else happening. A lot of people think of paranormal as things like flying saucers, Big Foot . . . we tend to just do ghosts. If the lights are going on and off and you can find an electrical issue, that could be readily explained away. If it can’t be explained away, it’s got to be paranormal.

When did you first become interested in the paranormal? When I was a little girl. I think the first paranormal experience I had was I saw my grandfather, who had been dead see Spirits page 3A

Library may have to reduce hours Facility must reduce budget by five per cent, meaning layoffs, program cuts may be only options

the library needs to reduce its budget by five percent. Library Director Peggy Martin said that to accomplish this, the library will almost certainly have to reduce its hours, and will likely have to cut some of its programs as well, such as ones targeted By Emily Darrell at seniors and children. Staff Writer The library is currently open 54 hours a week and Martin said she’s looked into many different Interim County Administrator Elmer Hodge hour-reduction scenarios, such as closing on a cermet with the Library Board of Trustees Wednesday to discuss the 2013 budget. The bottom line: see Library page 2A

Women of Farm Bureau make visit to county school children The Powhatan County Farm Bureau Women’s Committee celebrated National Agriculture Week by donating over $100 worth of food to the Coalition of Churches Food Pantry. They also presented a program on agriculture to children in kindergarten through second grades on the importance of using fresh produce. A book written by a farmer in Virginia who raises vegetables to be sold at markets was read to the children. The children also participated in a project illustrating the amount of farms lost in Virginia to development over the past 50 years. The program was resented by Clara Stokes and Stephanie Harper with help from Dorothy Bailey, Debbie Vaughn, Shirley Charles, Jennifer Bailey, Rose Borkey and Anne Lewis. Two costumed characters, Sophie Soybean and Callie Corn were used to entertain the children.

tain day of the week – say, Wednesday – or reducing the hours each day by opening later or closing earlier. This reduction in hours may result in the layoff of some part-time employees. Martin said that this reduction scenario becomes “a little more complicated” by the fact that it could potentially cause the library to lose all of its state aid, which comprises about

one-third of the library’s total budget. This loss in state aid depends on whether the Board of Supervisors decides to reduce the budget of all County departments by five percent. If the reductions are required acrossthe-board, the state will continue its funding. If the reductions are not mandated across-the-board, Martin said that the library may petition the state to grant a waiver.

Spirits: Women say popularity of ‘ghost hunting’ shows has brought more acceptance. Continued from page 1A

for many years. And I’ve always felt things. I don’t claim to be a ‘sensitive.’ But I do feel things. You know, you feel other people around you and you don’t see them. Back then you didn’t talk about it, because people thought you were crazy. Now with all the ghost hunting shows on TV people are becoming more accepting of it. So I decided that now’s the perfect time to explore it.

How many people would you say are active with the group? My husband does it with us sometimes. But we have Wanda Long, who’s a full-time investigator, and Amanda Aboulhosn is a full-time investigator. And then we’ve got probably four others that are part-time investigators.

So full-time investigator – what does that mean? It means they go to every investigation. That’s our group. The part-time ones, they go when they’re available. Our full-time – Wanda, Amanda, and I – we’re a package group. You get one of us, you get us all.

Do you all get paid for this? We don’t get paid. It’s just to document. We look at it as a science – a new science. And just like with any science you have to document, be proved, disproved. We’re just trying to further the field as far as that’s concerned.

So what are the most haunted spots in Powhatan? Well, we’ve only done a few in Powhatan. We’ve done two private homes out here and we did a cemetery out here. The cemetery we definitely got good evidence of.

Science and religion butt heads all the time. So, we try to keep it separate. It never makes me question whether or not there is a higher being ... It never makes me question that I’ve seen miracles that just happen to people.

piece of furniture. I don’t know why you would want to hang around for a piece of furniture. But we do hear of things – ‘We’ve got Grandma’s old chest.’ And the chest gets sold to some unknown person and then all of a sudden there’s activity in their house.

Are you a religious person? Do you feel your belief in the paranormal conlicts with these beliefs or that they can co-exist somehow?

Which cemetery is that?

The preliminary hearing for James Lee Wolfe, which was to be held in Powhatan General District Court on Friday, has been continued until May 4. Wolfe has been arraigned for allegedly robbing, abducting, and brutally attacking Powhatan special education teacher Mary Anderson one eveWolfe ning in late January, as she was watching television in her Academy Road home. Wolfe has also been charged with setting Anderson’s home on fire. The hearing was continued because Wolfe’s defense attorney, Mark Englisby, has requested a psychological evaluation to be performed on Wolfe, which won’t be completed until midApril. Powhatan Commonwealth’s Attorney Bob Beasley, who is serving as the prosecutor in this case, said that it is common for a defense attorney to request a psychological evaluation in a case as serious as this one. Beasley said this is not an indication that the defense attorneys will file an insanity plea, though this is a possibility.

“In Virginia, to plead insanity, an attorney has to show that their client does not know the difference between right and wrong,� Beasley said. “It’s not just that they have some mental problems or something like that.� Beasley said that insanity pleas are rare, and that in his many years as a prosecutor in Powhatan, he’s only seen the strategy employed twice. Wolfe, an Amelia resident, has been charged with five felonies in Powhatan in conjunction with the attack on Anderson: breaking and entering with the intent to rob, robbery, arson, aggravated malicious wounding, and abduction. He has also been charged with robbery in Chesterfield County, as he robbed Anderson at an ATM there, as well as at her home in Powhatan. On May 4 Wolfe will also have a hearing for the misdemeanor offense of driving under the influence of drugs, for which he was arrested in Powhatan on January 7 by a state trooper, only weeks after being taken off probation, and only weeks before his attack on Anderson. Wolfe has a lengthy criminal history, which includes construction fraud, breaking and entering, grand larceny, and possession of a firearm as a felon. He is currently being held without bond.

Hard work pays o for Cedar Ridge riding group Contributed report Local trainer Jill Carter, of Cedar Ridge Farm in Powhatan, had another successful training year. Jill Carter trains “up and comingâ€? equestrians from the local level to the rated/national level and, through the 2011 season, took her students to the top of both venues. Both trainer and students have much to smile about! For the second year in a row, Jill trained rider’s that qualified and attended the Pennsylvania National Horse Show and the Washington International Horse Show. This is no small feat, and takes enormous commitment from trainer, rider, and mount. After training for many years with Jill, both Jessica Matthews, aboard Tancho, and Kaylen Schwartz, aboard For The Fun, competed in these National Competitions, and Jessica placed 10th in Pennsylvania, and 9th in Washington. Equestrian seasons run virtually year round, and the local Capital Horse

Shows Association celebrated the accomplishments of its riders on January 21, 2012, for the 2011 show season. At the local level, riders took top honors in many divisions, and worked extremely hard to accomplish goals set at the beginning of the season. Carter’s own daughter, Elizabeth, who is also trained by Jeff Bradner of Field Crest Farm, moved up to the “big leagues� in the Medium Pony and Large Pony Divisions this year from the Short Stirrup Division last year, and rode away with top honors, as the Champion of the Medium Pony Division, aboard Lone Star out of Showplace Farm and third place in the Large Pony Division, aboard Captain Jack. She was also Champion of the CHSA Special Hunter Division, aboard Lone Star out of Showplace Farm, and fourth place in the same division aboard Captain Jack, and third place in the Pony see Riders page 5A

Elizabeth and Lone Star were also awarded Reserve Champion as the Registered Virginia Bred Pony’s second highest scoring pony exhibiting in a pony hunter division and were state-wide Champion in the VHSA Associate Small/Medium Pony Division. Carter’s niece, Abby Timmons, also moved up to the Medium Pony Division, and ended the season in third place, aboard All Your Dreams out of Cedar Ridge Farm, and fourth place in the Pony Equitation Division. Abby also competed in the $1000 CHSA Classic aboard All Your Dreams and put in two amazing rounds to finish as Champion of the Pony Classic. It seems the equestrian gene is quite strong in this family.

Yet Davis-Merchant Equipment Company, which is holding an open house on Saturday, March 24 to celebrate its 60th year as an incorporated business, has weathered those changes, becoming one the county’s longest running operations. Mike Merchant, who now co-owns the company with his brother Charles, said the open house will be “low key” – free hot dogs and sodas,

and special deals and incentives. Instead of just providing agriculture machinery to career farmers – which in the beginning made up “around 100 percent of the business” Mike says – the company now sells riding lawnmowers and chainsaws, leaf blowers and weed eaters. But Mike says the main reason Davis-Merchant has survived as long as it has, is that it provides a service. Davis-Merchant is the only (official) place in the county to have a lawn mower, tractor, or other piece of farm equipment repaired or serviced. Mike says that although it may sound a little cliché, “service doesn’t just mean turning wrenches.” “It’s advice over the phone, advice for people walking in here, just gen-

eral help.” He says that providing quality service is the only real way a mom-and-pop operation like his can hope to survive in the age of WalMart. Charles and Mike have had full ownership of the business since 1986, when they bought out their father’s remaining shares. Mike says that “besides a little moonlighting, so to speak – picking up hay, packing eggs, cutting corn,” he’s never known any other type of work besides working in the family business – first in the mechanical side of things, and then the financial side. He grew up in a house across the street from the Flat Rock shop, near where the Sheetz is now, and says, “As soon as Mama let me cross the road, I was here. Literally.”

Call it a sign of the times. Only months after Powhatan got its first-ever pawn shop, the County now has another place to exchange goods for quick cash: AAA Cash for Assets, located on Dorset Circle Ridge across from Dixon’s Auctions. Stewart The shop officially opened around a month ago, after owner Doug Stewart, a Chesterfield resident, got the necessary permits required by the Sheriff’s Department. Stewart, who also owns ABC Cash for Assets in Chesapeake, said he buys “a little bit of everything.” Gold, silver, diamonds, foreign and domestic coins, electronics, artwork – “If it has value to it, I’ll buy it,” Stewart said. Stewart hopes to draw customers from western and southern areas, such as Amelia and Farmville, who don’t want to have to travel into Richmond to sell their valuables. He also believes that once the Wal-Mart opens in the eastern end of the county it will draw business from Chesterfield. Though cash-for-gold shops have sometimes drawn criticism, Stewart believes that his shop is a better alternative for many people than a pawn shop. “I’ve seen people pay on something [they’ve pawned] for 12 months and then still end up losing it,” Stewart said. Stewart said that many pawnbrokers he’s known in the past have left a bad taste in his mouth. “I don’t know how they sleep at night, some of the prices they pay people.” —Emily Darrell

Upcoming program aims to help teens make smart choices By Roslyn Ryan Editor


hen it comes to the upcoming Straight Talk for Families seminar, scheduled for March 31 at Pocahontas Elementary School, organizer Mary Harrison wants to make one thing crystal clear. Though the program is intended, in part, to help students understand the risks of premarital sex, “This is not ‘The Talk’,” Harrison insists. “[Teaching kids about sex] is the area of responsibility of the parents,” she said. The workshop is instead meant to help both parents and teens make the most informed decisions possible concerning their health and their futures. In addition to group discussions on topics ranging from healthy relationships to sexting to sexually transmitted diseases, participants will learn about the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse and about how to set goals. Speakers will present the latest research on brain development, and the physical and psychological effects of substance abuse on young people. Attendees will be separated into four groups for the seminar: parents, boys in grades 6 - 8, girls in grades 6-8 and high school students. The Straight Talk for Families seminar, which is being sponsored by the Positive Powhatan People community group, The Elizabeth Randolph Lewis YMCA, and the Powhatan High School FCCLA, will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The cost of registration is $25 per person. Harrison stressed that, thanks to both a grant and generous private donations, families who are unable to pay the entry fee will not be turned away and will instead be asked to pay what they can. There is also a $50 cap on admission fees. One important thing to note about the program, said Harrison, is that it is not a carbon copy of what students re-

ceive in the classroom. “The focus of this program is on interactive, engaging methods — it is not a lecture,” she said. “It’s not a day of them being told ‘don’t do it, don’t do it.’ It’s a day to celebrate the kids as individuals, looking at their potential and identifying challenges that can keep them from achieving their own maximum potential.” The key, said Harrison, is that students will be engaged and informed in a relaxed atmosphere, by speakers who speak their language. “We’re not there to pour information into empty vessels,” said Harrison. “The attendees are going to be able to share and get feedback.” The thing Harrison said she hopes both students and parents can take away is a better understanding of what current research shows about the benefits of abstaining from sex until marriage. She wants them to be informed, and to understand the impact of the choices they make. The goal, she said, is for “kids to love themselves as much as we love them,” said Harrison. “That’s what we are doing this for.” Any student wishing to attend the Straight Talk for Families seminar must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. For more information, please contact Robin Manes at or Mary Harrison at or (804) 310-4616.

Hey Eddie, My 04 Honda overheated about a month ago and I had the radiator replaced. Now I’m getting white

Cheryl, I’m sorry, but it doesn’t sound good at this point. White smoke is caused by coolant or water that has made it to the combustion chamber and is now coming out of the tail pipe. This is an indication of a couple of different and expensive problems. The head gasket, cylinder head, and block all need to be checked for damage. A blown head gasket would be the best hope right now. Either way, the engine cylinder head would have to be removed to replace the gasket. At this time the cylinder head and block need to be checked for cracks and to see if there is warpage. Cheryl, I’m sorry this repair is not going to be a cheap fix.

Sam, At the risk of repeating myself, A good auto tech with a good scan tool is hard to beat. A good scan tool, not a code puller, can read data from the car’s computer and sensors as the computer sees it. A good technician can then analyze this information provided by the scan tool. This will provide much more information than just pulling codes. If I had to make a guess at your problem, it would be a bad primary oxygen 02 sensor. There are two. It sounds like the Idle Air control Valve (IAC) is okay, but just getting a bad signal from one of the two O2 sensors.

Hey Eddie, I have a 2001 Ford F150 with 108,000 miles. The engine runs great when cold, but when it warms up it idles erratically and then eventually dies.

I was taking an early morning trip down Route 711 last Saturday—intent on getting a few errands out of the way—when I noticed a pickup coming up behind me. Almost as soon as I had seen him, it became very, very clear that this driver and I, despite travelling the same road, were not going anywhere near the same speed. In fact, within a few seconds, he had pulled so close to my bumper that I could not see his headlights in the rearview mirror. I was driving my husband’s truck—a much bigger vehicle than my usual car, and one I am not terribly comfortable driving—and, to make matters worse, in the predawn light the flood of headlights into the cab made it all but impossible to see the road in front of me. After a few minutes of squinting and cursing, I was able to pull over and let the driver pass, but the incident left me shaken for quite some time. It wasn’t the first time I’ve been tailgated on that road, and I’ve seen it happen to many others on many other roads in the county as well. In light of this, and of the ongoing budget struggles the county is facing, I have a modest proposal: one of us should petition the Olympic committee to have tailgating added as an event in the upcoming 2012 summer games. Provided we can get the sport added—shouldn’t be that hard, they once included roller hockey—we will soon be staggering under the weight of our own gold. Hold on, hold on, I know what you’re thinking: even if we can get tailgating added as a sport, can we really hope to beat out the New Yorkers for a spot on the U.S team? I’m here to tell you I’ve lived and driven in both places, and, trust me when I say this: Yes we can. If you have ever driven see Too close page 11A

Which of the following most influences American teen-agers decision making? (a) Music (b) Peers (c)Parents In spite of what we may think, research has shown that it is still PARENTS whom teen-agers report as the most influential in their making of choices! Saturday, March 31, 2012 The Teen-Parent Connection: Straight Talk For Families, A seminar designed to inform, educate and strengthen students in grades 6 through 12 and their parents, will take place at Pocahontas Elementary School from 9:30 a.m. til 3:30 p.m. Co-sponsored by Powhatan High School’s FCCLA, the Elizabeth Randolph

lescent development mentally, physically and emotionally as well as an honest assessment of contemporary American culture and facts and statistics from the Departments of Labor, of Education and Center for Disease Control. Straight Talk For Families utilizes entertaining and engaging presentation methods that involve the students in the learning process. Participants are divided into four groups: parents, boys grades 6 to 8, girls grades 6 to 8, and high school students. The seminar leaders are dynamic, well-trained professionals in the fields of counseling and or youth ministry who have received strong evaluations. This seminar costs $2500 to bring to the county: normally participants are all charged $25 per person, and a parent must accompany his or

her child/children. However, since we have some very generous donors, no one will be turned away because of the cost. You are asked to pay what you can but do not stay away due to economic reasons, please. We believe your child and your strong parental involvement in his/her life is too important and we are grateful to our generous donors. We encourage all parents, youth or Scout leaders to please visit our website (www. positivepowhatanpeople. com) to learn more and to download a registration form. You can also visit to learn more about this program. Our youth’s future is challenged daily: parents are still the #1 influence! Let’s use our influence to make our children’s lives better.


In the name of clarity, public information needs interpretation By Gene Policinski First Amendment Center


he just-announced move by Encyclopaedia Britannica to end its print editions after 244 years of publishing came by happenstance in the middle of Sunshine Week, an annual campaign nationwide in support of freedom of information. The great general reference work for many generations will continue in digital form, like so much of the news, information, literature and art of our age. In that form, it will continue to provide the background and insight that, in the final 2010 edition, includes articles by experts and practitioners as diverse as golfer Arnold Palmer on the Masters tournament, Nobel laureates on art and science, and former President Bill Clinton on the 1995 peace accords in Serbia and Bosnia. The Britannica announcement during Sunshine Week is an ironic reminder that although lists and piles of data are basic, it’s often context, interpretation and perspective that move reams of figures and findings into the realms of the informative and useful. A day or so before Britannica said it no longer wished to rule the print waves, the Society of Professional Journalists issued a Sunshine Week re-

Lewis YMCA and Positive Powhatan People, this seminar provides the most current information on how the teen age brain develops, characteristics of healthy relationships, goals, pressures and boundaries, puberty, the four kinds of love, and other topics including today’s issues on the internet. This program has been presented to public school students throughout central Virginia and is well received by both the students and the parents. The seminar does NOT replace “the talk” –parents are the primary teachers of their children and are responsible for this important discussion. The seminar is NOT a day of telling students “Don’t do it” over and over. It IS a day that promotes the appreciation and understanding of normal ado-

port on the difficulty journalists and others have in reaching government experts who can bring a story or a meaning to information that’s “available” but requires analysis to be understood. The surveyed journalists – about 170 working in the Washington, D.C., area – said barriers to reaching experts on the public payroll include having to get pre-approval from public affairs officers to talk to other federal staffers, having those officers decide which experts are available, and having an inhibiting or obstructive “monitor” present during an interview. Not to mention outright stonewalling on sensitive issues. About 85 percent of the journalists who responded to the SPJ survey agreed that “The public is not getting the information it needs because of barriers agencies are imposing.” Granted, it may well be that a process is needed both to direct inquiries to the right place and to prevent scientists and other experts from being overwhelmed when their particular bit or byte of data draws public interest. A simple online directory of government staffers and their areas of focus or knowledge would be a good place to start. Of course, there’s always the possibility that experts will disagree, or depart from the political line or message being crafted by an elected official. But that’s what the marketplace of ideas – the fundamental principle on which a self-governing society depends – is all about: differing voices, some opposed on issues or facts, doing verbal battle in

the public square. Our nation’s Founders embraced that idea, believing that, in the end, truth would emerge. Facts without accountable, identifiable expertise behind them leave us exposed to entities like Wikipedia – a noble idea of self-correcting data, but one that can degenerate into ping-pong

In some ways, that’s freedom of information – with a strong dose of “receivers beware.” When it comes to information collected, collated and kept by our vast state and federal government agencies, however, citizens deserve something more: information and explanation they can rely on, and help in understanding it all. see Information page 11A

Females united The General Assembly’s hard right turn on reproductive-rights issues has inspired an intense backlash, including the creation of a new political action committee: The Women’s Strike Force. Its aim is to “support and elect candidates who will bring respect for women back” and defeat those who voted for such “dreadful” measures as the ultrasound and personhood bills. The PAC, which was created by former Rep. Leslie Byrne and a number of other prominent female Virginians, will be a welcome addition to the democratic process. The more citizen participation in public life the better, is our view. But it’s worth noticing that the creation of the Strike Force has not been accompanied by any of the usual laments about the “corrupting influence” of money from another “outside group.” Nor has there been a freshet of concern about the potential for “negative ads,” despite the Strike Force’s promise that “all funds raised will be used to beat every Virginia Legislator who voted in favor” of the personhood and ultrasound measures. The Strike Force is an incorporated entity — i.e., a corporation — whose sole purpose is to engage in electioneering activity. According to the critics of the Supreme Court decision in Citizens United and other so-called campaign finance reformers, that sort of activity is corrupting by its very nature and should be forbidden. Not only should such groups not give money to political campaigns, say such critics — they should not even be allowed to produce advertisements supporting or opposing candidates. If the Citizens United group should not have been allowed to criticize Hillary Clinton in a 2008 election-season documentary, then the females united under the Women’s Strike Force banner should not be allowed to criticize social conservatives in the General Assembly, either. We certainly don’t take that view, of course. But we find it extremely telling that so-called reformers evidently don’t, either. — Media General News Service

We deserve access to information rooted in a process that operates speedily and with transparency – without public relations nannies. Facts may speak for themselves, but when it comes to public facts, so should the people who are on the public payroll to assemble, assess and explain them. Gene Policinski is senior vice president and executive director of the First Amendment Center, 1207 18th Ave. S., Nashville, Tenn., 37212. Web: E-mail:

Use this week as a time for renewal, Capricorn. Set lofty goals because this will serve as a challenge in order for you to really shine -- and you thrive on challenges.

Aquarius, you may get caught up in your emotions about a certain person in your life. Take a step back and you’ll realize there’s no reason to get so excited.

Pisces, once you start focusing on what you want to do next, you find you have the motivation to get anything accomplished.

ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20

TAURUS Apr 21/May 21

GEMINI May 22/Jun 21

Aries, even though your intentions are good, be careful with words this week. Rely on your actions and not just your words to convey the message.

Taurus, you are absolutely sure your work week will go your way. Considering you weigh all the facts in decisions, there’s a strong chance you’ll be right.

Gemini, you are tempted to bend the truth a little this week. Be careful what you wish for, as it might be hard to recover a sense of trust if your actions are discovered.

CANCER Jun 22/Jul 22

LEO Jul 23/Aug 23

Cancer, adjust your way of thinking to be more flexible. You should not always operate on a rigid schedule, but be more receptive to changes. Check with friends; see what they think. Leo, you are aware of what lies ahead, but you’re not eager to jump in and get started on the tasks that need your attention. Develop a plan and things will work out.

Virgo, your confidence returns this week but you are still treading carefully so as not to be disappointed later on. Trust in VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22 yourself and you likely won’t be disappointed.

LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23

SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22


Establishing a balance between humility and selfconfidence is the key to being a wellrounded person, Libra. Therefore, don’t take the power of positive thinking to the extreme. Scorpio, although you are not overly excited about plans for the near future, you are capable of balancing fantasy with reality. Things will work out for the best.

Sagittarius, this week you realize that you don’t have as many answers as you thought you had. You can look for other answers by being in touch with friends and family.

I think we have a shot here folks, I really do— and not just because I’m biased.

New-look Indians drop opener Improved Trojans build 10-6 lead, hold on for first victory of season By Jim McConnell Sports Editor

The Powhatan High baseball team that took the field for last Thursday’s season opener against Midlothian bore little resemblance to the squad that dropped a heartbreaker to York in the Region I semifinals last spring. With new starters at six of nine positions, you’d need a program to identify these Indians. So while he certainly was less than pleased with certain aspects of his team’s 10-8 loss, PHS coach Gregg Conner has been around long enough to know that growing pains usually are part of the deal. “We’re a work in progress,” Conner said. “We’re filling a lot of holes in our

It’s only a week into the 2012 high school softball season, and already Powhatan has had to deal with its share of adversity. First, the Indians lost their ace pitcher, senior Rachael Walters, to a knee injury prior to their season opener against Goochland. Then they committed three costly defensive miscues behind Walters’ replacement, senior Hannah Marshall, and gave up five runs in the third inning of a 6-1 loss to the Bulldogs. But Powhatan bounced back from that defeat in dominant fashion, pounding out 14 hits and scoring 11 runs in its first four at-bats en route to a 12-3 victory over James River. “Obviously we made some uncharacteristic errors” in the Goochland game, Powhatan coach Marie Crump noted. “I think it was a wakeup call for them. Hopefully they learned from it.” The Radford-bound Walters is scheduled to have a surgical procedure Wednesday. After analyzing the extent of the damage, her doctor should be able to give her a better idea of when she can return to the field. Despite Walters’ absence, Crump doesn’t expect pitching to be an issue for the Indians. That’s because they still have Marshall, a hard-throwing southpaw who has been the team’s No. 2 pitcher in each of the last two seasons. “The opportunity has presented itself for her to get more playing time,” Crump said of Marshall. “My hope is she’s going to make the best of it, but we’re not counting on

From Staff Reports Andrew Corbitt tossed a one-hit shutout and struck out 10 as the Powhatan High baseball team bounced back from its loss to Midlothian by crushing Chancellor 10-0 in its 2012 home opener on Friday. Corbitt also had a good day at the plate, leading the Indians’ 13hit attack by going 2 for 3 with three RBIs. Nick Maiolo was also 2 for 3 with a double and scored two runs for Powhatan (1-1).

Marshall went 3 for 3 with a walk and an RBI, while Cam Smith was 3 for 5 with one RBI and Rachael Shiflett had two triples and drove in two runs. “Hitting is contagious. Once somebody gets up there and shows it can be done, it carries over and makes it easier for everybody else,” Crump said. Morgan Revels, Jen Balcom and Sierra Ford each also had two hits for the Indians. Smith led the way defensively with eight putouts, while Marshall struck out six and allowed only two hits in five innings.

show character and bounce back,” Midlothian coach Adam Griffin said. The host Trojans also were motivated by the memory of their most recent encounter with the Indians last May: a 17-5 Powhatan rout that featured a 13-run fifth inning. Conner acknowledged the 2012 Midlothian team is “vastly improved” from the squad that finished 0-19 just two seasons ago and won seven games last season. “The middle of their order is very tough. They have some guys who can really hit and they came through when their team needed them,” he said. Cleanup hitter Jacob Stephens got things started for Midlothian by crushing a Manion fastball for a solo homer that tied the game at 1 in the bottom of the second inning. Powhatan went back ahead when Scherzer led off the third with a double to the fence in centerfield, took third on a wild pitch and scored on a sacrifice fly.

tage. Allen’s long two-run homer to right sliced Midlothian’s lead to one run. Once again, the Trojans answered with four runs – all of which were unearned, thanks to a pair of infield errors by Powhatan. “We made some crucial mistakes and that’s the difference between winning and losing,” Conner said. The Indians didn’t stop swinging the bats. Scherzer (2 for 4) added a two-run single in the sixth and Powhatan loaded the bases against Midlothian reliever Austin Joseph with two outs in the seventh, bringing Allen to the plate as the tying run. In line for the victory after working 5 2/3 mostly effective innings, Midlothian starter Rawlings Cumbea acknowledged “it was extremely nerve-racking” as he watched Joseph pitch to the powerful Allen. Allen (2 for 3, 4 RBIs) got the better of the matchup, lining the second pitch he saw back up the middle for a two-run single that brought Powhatan within 10-8. But with the tying runs on base, Joseph retired Matt Lyman on a ground ball to secure the Trojans’ first win. “This is a great start for us and we need to carry it through the rest of the season,” Cumbea said. Powhatan didn’t have time to mope over its loss, with Chancellor coming to town for a nondistrict game on Friday. For his part, Allen was pleased with the Indians’ willingness to keep battling to the final out. “We lost a lot of seniors, but the guys stepping up now have a lot of heart,” he said. “That’s what I like about this team.”

RIR oers laps for charity By Charlie Leer Media General News Service

Tyler Allen poses with boys basketball coach Steve Washburn after being presented with the team’s Ken Nichols Award.

Last Wednesday, drivers from Yorktown to Fredericksburg, came to Richmond and got behind the wheels of their cars, trucks and motorcycles to turn a few laps at Richmond International Raceway. As part of RIR Cares Track Laps, by simply making a $20 donation, anyone with a valid driver’s license could take advantage of the rare opportunity to drive their personal vehicle around the same track that NASCAR drivers Denny Hamlin, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Tony Stewart compete upon. “They can get a little feeling of what the drivers go through,� said RIR President Dennis Bickmeier. “They feel that little tug in their seat when they go around the turns and everything.� For safety reasons, the drivers must follow a pace car and maintain 55 mph but that did not deter them from enjoying the rare opportunity. “It’s not quite the speed that the drivers are going but fun none the less,� Bickmeier said. “I think that’s cool that people, they love racing, they love this facility obviously, we’ve been here a long time. So to be able to come over and take a few laps is really special.� Also joining in the fun were Nutzy and Todd “Parney� Parnell, Vice President of the Richmond Flying Squirrels.

Parnell went overboard for the promotion and came to the track channeling Will Ferrell’s ‘Ricky Bobby’ by donning a Wonder Bread fire suit. Parnell’s Rebel Yell was the only thing that could drown out the country music blaring from his car as he did his laps. “My Buick LaCrosse, the boys back at the shop been working real hard on it. We had a little problem with grip with the left front but we put some air in it, got four fresh and everything’s fine,� he said. As the two most prominent professional sports in Richmond, RIR and the Flying Squirrels have gone to great lengths, to help promote each other’s causes. “I think we both get it,� Parnell said. “Part of being a visible part of the community and a company that everybody looks to, is having an impact. We both have responsibilities to have an impact on the community and I think we both take that very seriously. I think we both work at it together.� Last week’s RIR Cares Track Laps was the first of its kind but it will certainly not be the last. “We’re going to do it once a month through the year and I think it’s going to be cool,� Bickmeier said. “I think it’s really, really going to catch on.� While the events are open to everyone, reservations are required by calling 804-228-7500 or emailing

Knights: Drop season opener to Benedictine Continued from 1B

By Richard Carrier Contributing Writer

Academy. He’s also maintaining strict pitch limits to protect his players’ arms early in the season. “We just knew they were going to keep coming at us,” Poore said. “We didn’t put up a zero all day. We can’t go punchfor-punch with them.” At the same time, with Bend-

ele and Settle forming perhaps the best pitching duo in the conference, Poore wasn’t reading too much into a season-opening loss against such a quality opponent. “We’ll be there at the end,” he added. “I think games like this will pay dividends for us.”

Although it’s early in the season, last Thursday’s home and conference opener may have given Blessed Sacrament Huguenot baseball coach James Poore some indication of his teams strengths and weaknesses as well as an ongoing strategy for success this season. Tidewater Academy handed the Knights a 5-1 loss behind a strong pitching effort by Michael Webb. The crafty righthander ‘s complete game threehitter was the result of “a good breaking ball, first pitch strikes and good control,” Poore said. BSH’s starting pitcher, Nathaniel Settle, had a slow start, giving up two walks and two doubles to the first five Tidewater batters while falling behind 2-0. In the bottom of the first, after Stephen Bendele’s strikeout, Rhys Powell doubled and Settle reached on an error to set up a legitimate scoring opportunity for the Knights. But TJ Dobrucky’s laser shot drove the Tidewater left fielder to the fence for a long out and Greg Woody went down swinging for the third out. Dobrucky’s line shot was just one of several that appeared to back up Coach Poore’s theory that the new BBCOR bats were going to limit both the power of his hitters, as well as the scoring. “Those balls would have been out last year,” he said. For the next two innings both pitchers got in a groove and set the opposition down in order. The Knights committed two errors in

the fourth, but Settle struck out the final two… To end that threat. Powell took the mound in the top of the fifth and saw the first batter reach on a chopper to third, followed by two singles and a passed ball that produced two runs and a fielder’s choice plating the fifth. Powell did strikeout the last two Warriors, but the Knights were down 5-0. Webb went 1-2-3 in the bottom of the fifth and Powell was steady at the top of the sixth. In the bottom of the sixth Bendele cracked one of those not-quite-out-of the-park outs and Tyler Dobrucky singled through short. Settle flied out before TJ Dobrucky lasered a shot over second base to put runners at first and third. The younger Dobrucky sprinted home on a passed ball for the Knights only score. Powell, with his quirky off-speed repertoire – “I guess you’d call it a splitter,” said Coach Poore –gave up a hit and walk in the top of the seventh, but wasn’t scored on. Blessed Sacrament went down in order in the bottom of the seventh and Webb had his complete game. After only two games, Coach Poore is content that pitching will be his team’s strong point. But, unlike his power lineups of the past few years, this year’s Knights may very well have to revert to the “small-ball” offense that was so successful several years ago. “We need to improve our offense but, we may not be able to produce multiple hits,” he said. “We have to get the hits and score the runs and not get down early. We may have to hit-and-run and bunt more often.”

opening the season against a Benedictine team that is consistently one of the state’s top private school programs. BSH got off to a fast start, scoring two runs in each of the first two innings against hardthrowing senior Colton Konvicka, but Benedictine responded with eight runs in its first three at-bats and put the game away with six runs in the fourth inning of a 15-5 victory. “We were in it early and were swinging the bats well. We just made some mistakes and you can’t do that against Benedictine,” Poore said. “You can’t do that against any good team and expect to win.” Slugging BSH first baseman T.J. Dobrucky went 2 for 3 with a run scored and drove in a run in the first inning with a line-drive single. Tyler Dobrucky also went 2 for 3, scored a run and drove in another. Nathaniel Settle and Ethan Johnson each had an RBI single for the Knights, who overcame Benedictine’s three-run first inning and led 4-3 when the Cadets came to bat in the bottom of the second. “I thought Blessed Sacrament did a good job at the plate and took advantage of some mistakes by our pitchers,” Benedictine coach Sean Ryan said. “They got guys on base early and often.” The Knights’ second lead of the game lasted only long enough for the speedy Konvicka to reach on an infield single, steal second and third and motor home when catcher Greg Woody’s throw sailed past starting pitcher Stephen Bendele. BSH committed two more errors in the inning, but allowed only two runs because Settle came up firing after Alec Walker’s single to center and threw out Dallas Wood trying to score from second. Still, the 5-4 lead was enough for Konvicka. The senior finally found his groove after walking Woody to open the third, striking out the side with a nasty breaking ball he previously had been unable to command. Benedictine extended its advantage to 8-4 in the third, taking advantage of three walks to score three more runs on just two hits. Then the Cadets opened the fourth by loading the bases on two more walks and an infield error. Konvicka emptied them with a triple and Benedictine broke the game open with a sixrun outburst. “Not to sound cocky, but we knew they were going to have to score more than four runs to beat us,” said Childress, who went 3 for 4 with three runs scored and two RBIs. The Knights had limited options on the mound because Poore needed to save some pitching for his team’s game Thursday against Tidewater

VCU baseball squad has Powhatan flavor Contributing Writer

Yes, it’s that time of year again winter is thawing into spring, leaves are beginning to sprout on the limbs of trees that have been gray and lifeless for months, and folks across the nation are submitting obligatory op/ed pieces about the beginning of baseball season and all of the hope, optimism, and other fuzzy emotions that naturally come along with it. Spring training games are underway throughout Florida and Arizona, but you need not take a long journey to down the east coast or across the country to witness quality early-season baseball in person. All you need to do is hop on to 64 and take a quick trip into Richmond - there you’ll find the VCU season already in full swing (no pun intended). The Rams came out of the gates sluggish, compiling a 1-4 record over their first five contests, but have found their groove over the last two weeks. Between February 24 and March 9, the Black & Gold won eight of nine games and nearly tripled their opponent’s run total (57-21). What’s more intriguing (at least to us Powhatanians) is the fact that the Rams’ success has been linked in no small way to the contributions of two former Powhatan High School stand outs: Paul Nice and Brent Mikionis. Nice, who was named team captain by his teammates prior to the start of the season, is quickly becoming one of the Rams more consistent hitters. He’s batting a cool .348, good for third highest on the team (behind only Joey Cujas and Billy Cullen) and is living up to his reputation as a solid contact hitter, striking out only four times in 46 at-bats. His swing is so fluid, so naturalseeming that he very well could have

sprung from the womb with a Louisville Slugger gripped between his fingers. That picturesque cut is the same now as it was when he was a just a little tyke taking hacks on PYAA fields scattered across Powhatan. I have the video tape to prove it (He and I played ball together through little league and high school). He’s also become quite the Ricky Henderson on the base-paths. During the 2011 season he swiped 18 bags in 26 chances, and is currently tied for the team lead with two thefts this season. What he lacks in pure speed he compensates with the uncanny ability to get a quick jump off almost any pitcher – a skill that is a testament to his high baseball IQ and his mental alertness. While Nice is a pesky Dustin Pedroia-type player (he stands only 510), Mikionis, who was dubbed “The Lithuanian Hammer” by his high school teammates, is just the opposite – a physically imposing character who has the potential to go deep every time he strolls to the dish. He had a breakout season for the Rams during his sophomore year (2010), batting .342 and leading the team with 11 roundtrippers. His junior year was an unfortunate one - he appeared in only 14 games due to a shoulder injury that required surgery. However, he seems to be on his way to returning to his dominate, pre-injury form this season. He’s once again assumed the roles of everyday first baseman and cleanup hitter, and through 14 games he had slugged one of the team’s two home runs and has driven in nine runs (second highest on the team behind only Joey Cujas). So if you’ve got baseball fever running through your veins, but don’t have the cash or the vacation days to make the long journey to spring training, I encourage you to head on out to The Diamond to support Nice, Mikionis, and the rest of the Rams as they try to carry their current momentum into CAA play. Happy spring to all of you.

Choosing the right summer camp I

t can be difficult to envision warm summer days when the wind is blowing and the snow is falling. However, the winter months are a great time to explore summer camp options. In fact, many camps have strict enrollment timelines that require decisions to be made prior to spring. Attending summer camp has been a tradition in the United States for more than 150 years. Statistics indicate that around 30 million American kids attend summer camp each year. There are many benefits to summer camp. Camp enables children to stay engaged during the summer when there may be limited interaction with school friends. It also gives parents both a safe and viable daycare solution during the summer. Summer camp pulls together children from different neighborhoods, social classes and backgrounds, which can make it a good place to meet new people -- some of whom may become lifelong friends. Camps also provide a variety of activities that can challenge children to try new things that go be-

yond their comfort zones. Some children are very receptive to the idea of attending summer camp. Others need a little coaxing. But summer camp should never be forced on a child who does not want to go. In such instances, consider local daytime programs that may fill the void instead of programs that require being away from home. Once the decision for summer camp is made, there are some questions to answer.

• What kinds of activities do your children enjoy? These types of questions will help you narrow down your options. Then you can visit and interview camps to find one that is the best fit. When visiting camps, go armed with a checklist of questions. Some of these can include: • What is the philosophy of the camp?

• What are your finances like? Do you • Can you explain a typical day? have a budget for summer camp? • What are the types of activities and • What size camp do you desire? facilities offered? • Should the camp be co-ed or single • What is the camper-to-counselor sex? ratio? • How far do you want your child to • What is the camp’s drug/alcohol travel for summer camp? What are policy? the options in your area? • Does the camp have insurance and • Are there any camps that have been security personnel? recommended by friends or family members? • What percentage of staff return each year? How are staff selected and trained? • What kind of health care is provided? • Can you tell me about the policy on phone calls and family visits? • What do you do in the event of emergencies?

Summer camp is a fun way that millions of children spend their summers each year.

There are many different camps available. Some offer a “little bit of everything.” Others cater to academics, sports, specific hobbies or even religious preferences. Don’t wait too long to research and sign up for camps because many fill up quite early or have an extensive waiting list. That is why choosing a camp should be part of a winter to-do list. –Metro Creative

A family-friendly campground with plenty of activities for kids to have fun and make new friends often makes the ideal location for a family camping trip.

Camping 101 Make your family camping trip a success


amily vacations are a tradition for millions of families across the globe. Such vacations have declined in number over the last several years, when many families were forced to cut expenses in the midst of a struggling economy. Though the economy has gradually begun to rebound, families with fresh memories are still reticent to commit to costly vacations. One of the more affordable and family-friendly vacation options is camping. Families get the chance to experience some of nature’s most idyllic settings at a fraction of the cost of expensive resort vacations. But before venturing out in the great outdoors, a family should consider the following tips to ensure their camping vacation is a swimming success.

Research weather patterns and how much the weather can vary during the time of year when you will be vacationing. Does the weather fluctuate significantly during the daytime and nighttime hours? Is rain likely or unlikely? Weather conditions will dictate which gear is necessary for the trip, and families might want to avoid campgrounds that are frequented by rain. Adults might be able to cope with a rainstorm or two, but such conditions may make everyone miserable.

Find an activityfriendly campground When looking for a campground, look for one that boasts a lot of activities. Adults might enjoy the simple relaxation of camping, but kids will likely need more to do. Look for a campground that can offer activities the children will like, such as hiking, kayaking, rafting, or even mountain biking.

Determine who you are as campers

Research the weather

Not all campers enjoy the rustic Before choosing a campsite, get life of camping. Some need to coma firm grasp of what to expect from see CAMPING, pg. 4 ` Mother Nature while you’re there.

CAMPING Continued from pg. 3 b

bine camping with the amenities of modern life, including running water and toilets that flush. Campers should be honest with themselves in regards to their needs in amenities when researching campgrounds. If you and your family will need a shower, consider renting an RV for the trip or choose a campground with accessible showers and restrooms. Veteran campers might scoff at such amenities, but families would likely prefer some combination of roughing it in the wild and modern day living.

Get the right gear Entry to many campgrounds is free or nearly free. However, camping gear could cost money. The good thing about camping gear is it’s reusable. If this year’s camping trip is a success, then next year’s trip won’t cost nearly as

much. Visit a local camping store and explain your situation, including what you hope to get out of the camping trip and where you’ll be heading. An associate should be able to help you find the right gear for your trip, including a tent, lights, a water fi lter, cooking materials, and inflatable mattresses. The materials needed for a successful camping trip are many, but again these materials are reusable and can last a lifetime if families choose the right gear.

Stock up on the essentials Once you have purchased the right gear, don’t forget to stock up on the other essentials. Particularly during the warmer months, campgrounds can be very hot and insects abound. Be sure to bring adequate amounts of sunscreen and bug spray and apply each liberally every day. Even if the sky is over-

cast, apply sunscreen to avoid painful sunburn. Other essentials include toilet paper (bring more than you expect to use), bottled water, plates and utensils, and garbage bags. Be sure to bring extra garbage bags to avoid littering in the campground.

Don’t forget to have fun Families should emphasize having fun when visiting the campground. Because camping is not a resort-style vacation, it’s up to Mom and Dad to entertain the kids. Bring along a guitar for a campfire sing-a-long, and pack a few board games the family can enjoy under the stars at night. If a nearby park is known for being especially family-friendly, consider it as a campsite. Kids might meet fellow campers their own age and make some new friends. –Metro Creative

any people assume that simply wearing a life jacket or another personal flotation device is enough to provide adequate safety while enjoying activities on the water. But just as important as wearing the PFD is that it fit properly. Selecting a life jacket is not a one-size-fits-all scenario. Nor are all life jackets suitable for all types of water sports and other marine activities. The amount of buoyancy the jacket provides is relative to the activity and the size of the person wearing the jacket. Furthermore, it is unwise to think that children can simply wear an adult life jacket in a pinch. According to the Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission, life jackets that are too small or too large can come off or ride up in the water. A

All of the zippers, ties, straps, snaps, and other connection points should be correctly secured. Those who have experience in the water can test out the fit of a life jacket by walking into the water up to the

neck. After lifting up the legs and tilting the head back, the person should be able to float comfortably and not have to put any effort into staying above water. Furthermore, the life jacket shouldn’t obstruct the mouth. The person should also be able to swim easily on the back or side without restriction of the arms.

Encourage learning all summer


on’t let summer fun interfere with your child’s learning. Research has shown that kids can lose much of what they learned during the school year during the summer months, a phenomenon known as “summer brain drain.” Parents don’t need to fret, however; there are plenty of opportunities for children to keep their brains sharp and focused during the summer break. Here are some tips to help keep your children learning and their brain’s sharp during summer vacation.

Keep them problem-solving Math and problem-solving skills are the subjects experts say are more likely to be affected by brain drain. This doesn’t have to be the case, however, as there are plenty of activities to make math and problemsolving fun. One game that has the attention of educators and parents alike is Perplexus by Plasmart Inc. Perplexus is a 3D maze game where players manoeuvre a small marble around challenging barriers inside a large-sized transparent sphere. Unlike traditional flat-surface mazes that are composed of one path, Perplexus challenges player’s problem solving abilities with numerous paths to choose from and hundreds of barriers to overcome. In addition to being an entertaining game, Perplexus is a great tool for cognitive development, encouraging children to exercise their problem-solving, motor and dexterity skills, as well as improving


their hand-eye coordination. Perplexus is just as challenging for adults as it is for children and is for people aged 4-104, and so will help keep parents problem solving skills sharp as well.

Keep them active It is widely accepted that there is a link between a healthy body and a healthy brain. Keeping your children’s bodies fit will help keep their brains fit and reduce summer brain drain. Physical activity can be either indoor or outdoor fun. One popular indoor and outdoor riding toy is the PlasmaCar by Plasmart Inc. The PlasmaCar is a mechanical marvel that can be driven on any flat surface and is powered solely by kid-power. The PlasmaCar is a fun way for kids to ride around the neighbourhood and keep their bodies fit as it requires no batteries or fuel, just the occasional cookie or two. –Metro Creative

Sprinklers are refreshing, but they can waste water. A better idea is to take a dip in a pool, or a lake, or stream to cool off.

Kids’ outdoor fun can be eco-friendly


he warm weather is tailor made for children who want to enjoy some fun in the sun. As the kids get ready for summer, parents can find activities that are fun and beneficial to the environment. Consider the activities that fill warm days: Pool parties, water balloon tosses, bicycle riding, and afternoons spent on a swing set are just a few ideas that come to mind. Small changes can add up to big benefits for the planet. * Bye, bye balloons:What’s more fun that getting sprayed with cold water on a hot day? Instead of purchasing disposable latex balloons that will end up in the trash after the first pop, look for reusable absorbent balls that can be dipped into a bucket and then tossed to a partner. When he or she catches the ball, splashes of water will fly out. * Pool vs. sprinkler: Sure it’s fun running through an icy-cold sprinkler, but leaving a sprinkler running for a while is a waste of water. Plus, it can drown surrounding plants and other landscaping items. Instead, take a dip in the pool or fill up a child-sized pool and later use the water to give a drink to potted plants. * Go safe with swing sets: Safety is often the name of the game when erecting a swing set in the yard. It’s a good idea to surround the ground surface with a material that will cushion falls. There are mulches and rubber pellets for this purpose, but these may be treated with

chemicals and not be good for the environment. See if a local lumberyard or building supply store can drop sand in the area. It’s allnatural and can be a good shock absorber. * Recycle toys: While on the subject of swing sets and play materials, check out consignment shops or tag sales for gently used play items rather than brand new toys. Or initiate a toy swap in the neighborhood where once a year neighbors swap toys with one another so the kids have something “new”to play with. * Jump on a bike: Bicycles remain one of the greenest modes of transportation. Children clamoring for a new bike this season may be pleasantly surprised at how well a used bike or a hand-me-down may ride and look. Sometimes all it takes is a little elbow grease to tune up a tired bike. * Enjoy nature: Instead of plastic toys and electronics, kids with creative imaginations can turn items outdoors into nice play props. Twigs can serve as dueling swords while rocks and leaves can be piled to make an impromptu fort or home base. Kids may enjoy themselves exploring parks and caves right in their own neighborhoods. Just be sure to stress the “carry in, carry out policy” whenever enjoying nature. That means not to leave trash behind and to disturb natural wildlife the least amount as possible. –Metro Creative

Techniques to help a child learn to swim T

eaching a child to swim can enable him or her to enjoy a life filled with fun in and around the water. It is also one of the ways to prevent water-related injuries or death. Water safety is nothing to take lightly. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention note that in 2007 there were 3,443 fatal unintentional drownings in the United States, averaging 10 deaths per day. An additional 496 people died from drowning and other causes in boating-related incidents. Also, more than one in five fatal drowning victims are children ages 14 and younger. Although teaching a child to swim does not negate the necessity to carefully watch young children whenever they are around water, it does offer a measure of safety. A boy or girl who knows how to swim may be able to prevent an injury or get out of harm’s way better than one who is floundering in the water. In fact, the CDCrecommends it as one method of preventing water-related injuries. Teaching kids to swim requires some patience and general knowledge of swimming techniques. Parents or caregivers unsure about their teaching abilities can enroll their children in swimming courses offered in their towns and cities. Adults choosing to teach swimming on their own can try these techniques. 1. Start with teaching the child to blow bubbles out of his mouth and nose. This teaches the youngster how to prevent water from being inhaled. With only his or her mouth and nose under the water, the child can blow out and create bubbles. Once this technique is mastered, he or she may be less frightened about water going up the nose. 2. Have the child hold onto the side of the pool or a floatation device if out on a lake or in the ocean. The child should extend his or her legs outward and practice floating and kick-

In terms of children and life jackets or flotation vests, the Division of Boating and Oceanic Recreation of Hawaii says that fitting children with PDAs is one of the most frequently asked questions of boating safety educators. Typically, children 12 years and

ing. Begin by kicking any which way, eventually evolving to a control kick once he or she is more comfortable. 3. The next step is to practice a few strokes. A breast stroke may offer more propulsion and buoyancy than a simple doggy paddle. Have the child stand in the water and practice pushing water out of the way in the desired stroke. Then he or she can practice doing it while floating with an adult providing some added support under the belly. With time he can learn to float and stroke at the same time. 4. Once the separate elements are mastered, it’s time to put them all together. He can choose to simply launch off of the pool bottom or kick off of the side. It’s important to stress that the kicking motion is like the accelerator of the car; it will keep him moving and also keep him afloat. Swim strokes will simply steer him and provide propulsion assistance. Knowing that each motion has its own importance will help the child remember that all are needed to swim and stay afloat. Once the child has become comfortable swimming above the water, he or she may eventually want to learn to swim below the water, which many people find to be less tiresome and allows one to cover more ground faster. Swimming underwater employs the same techniques as above, but the child will need to be comfortable holding his or her breath for a long period of time. This can be practiced standing in the water and dunking the face or body (with supervision nearby) underwater. Don’t encourage kids to hold their nose because both hands will be needed to swim underwater. After the child has grown accustomed to holding his her breath stationary, he or she can try doing it underwater and swimming. Swimming is an important skill to learn, one that’s both practical and fun. –Metro Creative Learning to swim enables a child to be more comfortable around the water.

younger are expected to wear a life jacket at all times when in a boat or around the water. This means kids will spend significant time wearing the life jacket, so it should be comfortable and fit properly. According to DOBOR, children’s life jackets are typically designed around three sizes. An infant device is for children under 30 pounds. A small child is appropri-

ate for children 30 to 50 pounds. A youth size is right for children 50 to 90 pounds. Larger children may graduate to a small adult’s size. Life jackets for young children may have a flotation collar that helps to keep the head upright, as a child’s head tends to be his or her heaviest part of the body. In addition, there will likely be a strap that secures between the legs to prevent vest from

riding up. All life jackets should be replaced when they start to fade to the color of the inside label. This might be indicating that their safety protection may have started to deteriorate. In addition to properly fitting a life jacket, it is important to practice being in one in the water. While life jackets may keep adults and children afloat, they may not

Metro Creative

keep a struggling person face up. Therefore, it is adviseable to remain calm in the water while wearing the PFD. Life jackets can save lives when properly fitted and worn correctly. Also, many people prefer to purchase life jackets that are a Coast Guard approved device for added protection. –Metro Creative

Retirement planning crucial for small business owners Planning for retirement is crucial for everyone, and it is especially critical for small business owners, the business leaders many cite as the life blood of the American economy. Indeed, according to the U.S. Small Business Administration, small business owners employ half of all private sector employees, pay 44 percent of total U.S. private payroll, and have generated 65 percent of net new jobs over the past 17 years. The challenge before American small business owners is keeping their companies financially healthy long-term. This is so that small business owners do not over-rely on the sale of their business alone to take care of them in retirement, and so the business will continue to remain a viable employer in the communities it serves. Because small business owners and entrepreneurs are busy every day working to keep their businesses running strong, their schedule can often interfere with planning for the future. But in this economy, planning is a must in any business strategy. Without it, business owners may be surprised to fi nd that the ultimate sale of their business may not leave enough for them to live on. This

is because the sale timing might be off, or their finances are not strong enough to cover a full retirement. “Setting a target number - or dollar figure of what is needed to live on for the rest of your life - is important, and it should be determined at least 10 years before you’re ready to retire,” says Tara Reynolds, corporate vice president with Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company (MassMutual). “And as you approach retirement, it’s also a good idea to re-calculate what the business is worth with a proper business valuation to determine how you will need to fund your non-working years, if the value has changed. Having this plan and expectation in place can help you determine the best way and time to retire from your business.” The average business owner expects to retire at age 68, according to a survey conducted by GfK Custom Research North American for MassMutual in 2011. Yet only one-third of the respondents had a sound retirement strategy to ensure income for life, having access to income when needed, managing potential health care expenses and leaving a legacy to the next generation.

Office productivity gets cubed – Unknown

Since its inception around 40 years ago, the cubicle has been a mainstay of office decor. Love it or loathe it, many companies still employ the segregated design of cubicles to outfit their buildings and provide a measure of personal space for employees. Before the advent of cubicles, most office workers were lined up rather rigidly in desks in one open space. Those who held higher positions in the organization may have had a private office. Robert Probst, a research director at the home-furnishings company Herman Miller in Zeeland, Mich., came up with the concept of the “Action Office” in the late 1960s. His system was designed to increase productivity of workers. It consisted of a variety of work surfaces and shelves that could display paperwork and other work items. This was before the desktop computer became an essential element of offices across the globe. Partitions were part of the design,

offering some semblance of privacy and a place to post work in progress. Desks varied in height so that workers could stand up and stretch while working. In theory, the Action Office had merit, but soon plain old economics changed cubicles into what they would become -- inexpensive means of housing employees in a relatively small amount of space. To stimulate business spending in the 1960s, the United States Treasury established new rules for depreciating assets. They stated that offices with permanent structures depreciated after 39.5 years. Office furniture would depreciate -- and need to be replaced -- in just seven years. Therefore, a company could recover costs faster if it purchased a cubicle-type system, and this factor quickly became a new selling point for Probst’s Action Office systems. Probst’s original design was meant to be flexible and moveable. But cubicles, once erected, rarely moved. And soon companies packed them into whatever space they had. Although there have been uprisings to thwart the cubicle lifestyle within the office

Business casual is the standard for work

CUBED Continued from pg. 3 b

environment -- most unsuccessful -- one of the more recent threats to cubicle life is the growing popularity of working from home or from other areas, such as coffee shops or areas with WiFi service. Some office cubicles remain vacant most of the week thanks to mobile technology and flexible bosses who allow work to get done anywhere as long as productivity is not sacrificed. For those who still spend considerable time inside of a cubicle, here are some suggestions for making it your own. * Add small decor touches, like a landscape photo or a portrait of your family. * Put up diplomas or certificates of merit, especially if customers or clients will be visiting you at your cubicle. * Plants can boost your mood and add a bit of life and color to the office. They also help liven up stale office air. Many plants thrive under fluorescent lights, a staple of office living. * Place a candy dish out so that coworkers will stop by and visit for a few minutes. * Hang up a brainteaser or word of the day calendar to help keep your mind sharp.

In today’s economic climate, there are more job applicants than there are jobs. Landing or keeping a job with so much stiff competition means employees must take the necessary steps to ensure they’re a viable part of the company. Dressing the part may seem inconsequential, but it can say much about how seriously you take your work. A business casual dress code is standard across much of the white-collar business world. It has supplanted formal attire, sometimes called international standard business attire, in most companies. In the U.S., roughly 45 percent of employees arrive to work in business casual clothing. Still, many are not quite sure what constitutes business casual wear. Business casual clothing is neat, professional and classic. Although not a uniform, this type of attire helps to keep workers uniformly dressed in tailored and comfortable clothing. For men and women, khaki or dark-colored slacks are customary; women may choose to wear conservative skirts that are

not too short. Pressed, long-sleeved, buttoned solid shirts are safe bets for both men and women. Short sleeves are customary during the warmer weather. Some companies allow collared polo shirts or golf Ts. Informal dresses for women and sweaters are also acceptable. Women should avoid baring too much cleavage, which can be viewed as sexually forward. With both genders, clothing should fit well but not be too tight or suggestive. Depending on the organization, shoes should be closedtoe and modest. Many companies institute “casual Friday” attire, which is a variation on business casual by allowing jeans or sneakers to be worn. However, even on casual days, most companies frown upon wrinkled, ripped, too trendy, or revealing types of jeans. Shorts are often frowned upon as well. If women will be wearing dresses, spaghetti straps should be avoided in favor of thicker tank top straps or capped sleeves in warmer weather. Flip-flops and see WORK ATTIRE, pg. 7 `

Avoid large patterns because they are memorable, and these items will not be able to be worn frequently without risking the chance of someone recalling the outfit. Invest in some blue, black, brown and tan pants and/or skirts. These basics can be worn with many different colored shirts and blouses. A cardigan or blazer can instantly dress up a business casual outfit for a client meeting. Gentlemen can stash a basic tie in their desk drawers to use should an impromptu meeting take place and more formal attire is required. Avoid overly pungent perfumes or colognes around the office. Companies may have policies on piercings or visible tattoos. When in doubt, take it out or cover up. Men may not want to wear earrings. Facial hair and hairstyles should be kept well-groomed.

Save on the side You’ve probably heard about diversifying your portfolio, and the same is true with diversifying your retirement plan. Put aside 20 to 25 percent of your gross income in savings outside of the business. This provides you with flexibility as you plan your exit from the business. For example, if you have an heir or employee interested in purchasing the company, they might not be able to afford it all at once, but could take over the helm with smaller payments over a period of time. Having additional savings can help you tide over in retirement while you also receive payments for the business.

Within three to five years of retirement, business owners should start to find a buyer for the business. Of course, this plan demands that the owner set an expected retirement date and stick to it. By waiting too long, owners may begin to experience poor health and low energy, which could affect productivity and potentially the profitability of the company.

Planning for retirement is so crucial, and owning a business can often add complications in timing the retirement perfectly. “Business owners put so much hard work into building the business and making it strong and viable in the market,” says Degen. “With additional planning in retirement strategy, a good business owner Explore options can retire and see the business continue to As you near retirement, selling off your succeed even after it has been transitioned business in one setting would make ev- over to new owners.” erything easy.

other flimsy sandals also should be reconsidered. In terms of accessories and jewelry, less is often more when complementing business casual attire. Avoid flashy items or pieces that may distract or inspire envy. The work environment is not a fashion runway, and dressing to stand out could make others feel intimidated. Not all companies employ the same rules and regulations concerning wardrobe. For those who are new to a company, it’s best to stick with conservative business casual basics and then observe what others are wearing. Keep in mind that attire worn by supervisors or business owners may not be what employees are allowed to wear. Just because the CEOis donning jeans and a T-shirt every day doesn’t mean it is acceptable for you. When in doubt, ask human resources or a personnel director if there are attire guidelines. Fellow employees whom you trust can also lend advice. It is always a safer bet to err on the side of conservative in any business environment unless you definitely know their wardrobe policies. – Metro Creative

Dealing with unemployment-related depression


nemployment comes with a host of unwanted side effects. Among the more obvious are fi nancial concerns and lifestyle changes that reflect a loss of income, such as dining at home instead of nights on the town, or cutting back on certain luxuries. One of the lesser discussed but potentially harmful side effects of unemployment is depression. Several studies have indicated a link between poverty and social isolation and depression. When unemployed for long periods of time – a reality for many workers in a job market the Center for Economic Policy and Research considers the worst since the Great Depression – the resulting isolation from colleagues and friends coupled with a loss of income can be enough to trigger depression. To the millions of workers across the globe who are unemployed and dealing with depression, the simplest solution might be fi nding a job. But that’s no small task, and men and women must fi nd additional ways to cope with depression as they continue to look for work.

Establish a schedule Even if there’s no longer an office to drive to each morning, unemployed men and women should maintain a schedule. When looking for work, do so during set hours each weekday. Set aside the hours between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. that are devoted specifically to fi nding a job. Continue a schedule that mimics the one you had while you were working. This schedule should include getting up and showering each morning. This allows you to maintain contact with old colleagues and stick to the same social schedule you followed while employed.

Another way unemployed men and women can volunteer is within their own industries. If you were laid off but still have a passion for your work, volunteer your time. This is a great way to stay in touch with the industry and make new contacts who might be able to help you find a new job.

Take a break

Finding a job in today’s market is essentially a full-time job. While it’s important to be diligent in a job search, it’s just as important to take a break. Rest on weekends and spend time with friends and family just like you would if you were still employed. Doing so helps recharge the batteries and can Volunteer help fight off feelings of isolation that may When dealing with the daily grind, many or may not exist. people lament that life goes so fast they don’t have time to do things like volunteer in their Eat right and exercise community.

been clinically proven to ease symptoms of depression, some foods support wellness, repair and growth. A Spanish study that examined nearly 10,000 men and women found that rates of depression increased in men as their folate intake decreased. Folate is a vitamin of the B complex found in leafy green vegetables. The same study found that women whose B12 intake decreased were also more prone to depression. Many men and women may use their hectic schedules as an excuse to eat a poor diet and avoid daily exercise. Unemployed men and women can use this respite from the daily grind to adopt a healthier lifestyle, one that can even help combat depression that might result from unemployment. One thing men and women must also remember when dealing with depression that might have resulted from unemployment is they are not alone. With millions of professionals currently out of work, support groups have formed to help men and women combat depression and better cope with the side effects of unemployment. – Metro Creative

Help Wanted: Career Choices on the Rise


s any professional knows, the job market is as fluid as ever. The uncertain nature of the economy as well as advancements in technology have changed the way business is done. As a result, those seeking employment or those simply hoping to switch careers would be wise to consider which fields are on the rise. In general, job seekers with no ties to any specific locale tend to look for work in larger cities, including New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. However, even metropolitan areas continue to recover slowly, if at all, from the economic downturn that began near the end of the first decade of the 21st century. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the city of New York’s jobless rate in June 2010 was 8.8 percent, a slight improvement over the June 2009 rate of 9 percent. Los Angeles, meanwhile, saw its

jobless rate increase over that same span, jumping 11.1 percent in June 2009 to 11.6 percent a year later. Simply put, the conventional wisdom of moving to the big city to find work is no longer a lock. Job seekers would be wise to consider the following careers, which Department of Labor studies indicate are among those on the rise in metropolitan areas.

Registered Nurse Department of Labor research indicates that some 581,500 new RN jobs will be created in the 10year period between 2008 and 2018. What’s more, an RN can expect to make a very good salary as well. For example, the San Francisco-San Mateo-Redwood City metropolitan area boasts the third highest-average annual salary for RNs at $98,900.


Accountant While the prospects for accountants are not as great as those for registered nurses, opportunities are still very good, with nearly 280,000 new jobs expected between 2008 and 2018. The majority of accountants work in urban areas as well, making the move to a metropolitan area a good decision for prospective accountants.

Paralegal Paralegals can expect strong hiring trends for the next decade as well, with more than 74,000 new jobs expected between 2008 and 2018.

Education Administrator Though this field expects

some growth over the next decade, it’s important for job seekers to know that many of the nation’s public schools require an advanced degree, particularly a master’s in education administration, for their top administrative positions, which can pay into six figures.

Network administrators Computer network administrators are, not surprisingly, likely to be in high demand for the next decade, with an expected 286,000 new jobs to be created by 2018. In addition, job seekers might be surprised to know that this potentially highpaying field offers entry level positions with requirements of Metro only an associate’s or bachelor’s Department of Labor research indicates that more than half a million new registered nurse degree. – Metro Creative

jobs will be created between 2008 and 2018, making nursing the fastest growing field in the United States.

Coping with stress at the office


he workers of the world are working more. So says an annual study of employee benefit trends from MetLife. In 2010, 40 percent of employees admitted their workload had increased compared with the previous year. While there are many reasons that can account for a heavier workload at the office, heavy layoffs in countries across the globe has, in many instances, left those who weren’t laid off with extra work. And companies might be surprised to know just how much this approach isn’t working. TheMetLife study also found that 68 percent of employees surveyed reported that the quality of their work had suffered and that fear of losing their jobs played a significant role in how well they did their jobs.

While employees might not be able to quell their fears of one day being laid off, there are things they can do to reduce the stress that often accompanies such fears. Stress is a part of most professions and can even be a good motivator. However, when stress is prolonged or excessive, the results can be very unhealthy. Men and women with high stress levels are more likely to suffer from depression, anxiety and cardiovascular disease. When faced with prolonged or excessive stress at the office, men and women can take the following approaches to avoid succumbing to stress. * Determine what is causing the stress. Stress triggers vary depending on the individual, so men and women who are coping with excessive stress should write down anything that causes them a

negative response, whether that response is physical, emotional or mental. After a week, sit down and look at the various things that triggered these negative responses. Choose one and work to resolve it. Determine if there is a way this trigger can be avoided. Do this with each trigger one by one. It might not be possible to successfully address each trigger, but it’s worth the try and it is likely that certain triggers can be successfully avoided. * Manage time effectively. One of the problems with an increased workload is the time in the day to complete that work does not simultaneously increase. This reality makes it easy to become overwhelmed with stress. But a few time management techniques can help. Prioritize certain tasks, ensuring projects that are time-sensitive get done ahead

of those that aren’t. When setting a schedule for work, be realistic. If a schedule isn’t realistic, that will only cause more stress. * Maintain a personal life. Effectively managing stress at work involves having a personal life away from the office. All work and no play is a recipe for stress. No matter how big a workload awaits you at the office, be sure to make time for enjoyable activities away from work. Spend time with friends and family, plan a weekend getaway or simply relax at home. Such time, even if it’s not as often as you might like, makes dealing with stress at the office that much easier to handle. * Remain physically active. Exercise is a great remedy for stress. In fact, the American Psychological Association notes that studies have suggested physically active people

have lower rates of anxiety and depression than sedentary people. While research is ongoing, some researchers feel exercise enhances the body’s ability to respond to stress. In addition, exercise seems to give the body practice at dealing with stress. While exercising, the body’s physiological systems are forced to communicate with one another. These same systems must also communicate with one another when

responding to stress. Regular exercise helps the body communicate more efficiently, something that helps when the time comes to respond to stress. Stress at the office is likely always going to be a concern for working men and women. However, there are ways to effectively cope with stress no matter how daunting a workload might be. –Metro Creative
