Supervisors dive back into comprehensive plan review
Sticking it to cancer
By Laura McFarland News Editor
Andrew Pompei, the county’s new planning director, led the board through its latest workshop on the comprehensive plan on May 10. He first explained changes staff had made to the chapters the board had already news p based on their feedback. He then took the board into its first group discussion about the future land use map, which was the focus of the majority of the supervisors’ dialogue. In response to the board’s direction about generating a proposal for nodal development, Pompei said the planning commission held a workshop and “did not feel comfortable changing their recommended countywide land use plan, so it remained as is.” “The planning commission spent more than a year looking at the 2010 map and making their tweaks. They felt they spent a lot of time and put a lot of thought into it,” Pompei said. “They looked at existing land uses within those … areas. They looked at a study prepared by Timmons. So they felt that they had a well thought out plan.” Pompei added that the planning commission mentioned they had nodal development of a different type. If you look at the land use map of the entire county, they felt there are there are three large nodes, which are the growth areas at 711 village, Route 60 east and the courthouse area. County staff created maps that tried to mesh the planning commission’s recommendations with the board’s directive for nodal development. All of the
OWHATAN – The Powhatan County Board of Supervisors dove back into discussions last week on the 2017 Long-Range Comprehensive Plan that is meant to help shape how the county develops going forward. The board held a special workshop on Thursday, May 10, the first in several weeks specifically addressing the proposed update to the 2010 comprehensive plan that the planning commission presented to the board last fall. In early 2018, the supervisors held a series of workshops to evaluate the Powhatan County Planning Commission’s recommended draft, reviewing Chapters 1 through 7 and 10 to 11 and offering suggested changes. Chapter 8, which looks at Land Use and Community Character, and Chapter 9, Transportation, were not reviewed at these workshops. Chapter 8 includes recommendations for where growth should occur, how dense that growth should be, and where there are important natural resources that should be protected. One of the key elements of the chapter is the Countywide Future Land Use Map. During the board’s meeting on Feb. 26, the supervisors made a motion directing the planning commission and Department of Community Development to generate a proposal for nodal development along U.S. Route 60. This type of development provides a mix of residential, commercial, and service opportunities in a compact area, often locating the nodes at existing intersections or community centers.

Interest low in primary election By Laura McFarland
POWHATAN – Absentee voting for the upcoming statewide dual congressional primary election has been almost nonexistent in Powhatan County so far and expected voter turnout numbers are still a mystery, according to the di-
rector of elections. Powhatan only had 11 people cast absentee ballots as of Monday, May 14 using absentee voting and with no recent similar election to compare it to, Karen Alexander, director of elections, said she could not begin to guess how many people will turn out to vote on Tuesday, June 12.
In one race in the election, Abigail A. Spanberger and Daniel K. Ward are both seeking the Democratic Party nomination for the United States House of Representatives for the 7th Congressional District. In the other race, Corey Stewart, Nick J. Freitas and E.W. Jackson
Second man pleads guilty in cock fighting case By Laura McFarland News Editor
POWHATAN – The second of two men charged in fall 2017 with raising more than 300 chickens for cock fighting at a property in Powhatan County recently pleaded guilty as part of a plea deal. Juan Jose Benitez, 41, of Powhatan pleaded guilty to one count of misdemeanor aiding and abetting animal fighting and one count of misdemeanor animal cruelty on April 26 in Powhatan County Circuit Court. Circuit Court Judge Paul W. Cella accepted the plea worked out by defense attorney Paul Fantl and Michelle Welch, senior assistant attorney general, who was the spe-
cial prosecutor on the case. Benitez was sentenced to 12 months in jail for each charge to run concurrently but Cella suspended all 24 months for five years, according to court records. The defendant was also ordered to pay $3,473 in restitution. Benitez served 50 days of active incarceration while awaiting trial and will also be banned from owning or pos-
sessing animals for five years. Attorney General Mark R. Herring’s office issued a release last week about the successful prosecution of Benitez and Isaias Andrade Andiola, 40, of Powhatan. Andiola pleaded guilty to five felony counts of possessing, selling or training animals for the purpose of fighting and five misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty on Feb. 9. He
was sentenced to five years for each felony charge with four and a half years suspended on each for 10 years. Cella, who was also the judge in that case, allowed Andiola to serve the remaining six months on each charge concurrently, for a total of six months, and gave him credit for the four months he had been in custody at that point. He also was sentenced to 12 months for the five misdemeanor charges with 12 months suspended on each for five years, is barred from owning or possessing animals for life, and must pay $3,473 in restitution. Initially both men were charged with 10 counts each of animal cruelty toward chickens and 10 counts relatsee GUILTY pg. 8

are seeking the Republican Party nomination for the United States Senate for the 7th Congressional District. Alexander said she was surprised at the extremely low turnout so far for the primary elections. The primaries are generally lower than the November elections, but voter interest in these two races has been lower than usual, she said. Part of that might be down to the races not receiving much publicity, she said. “When people don’t see campaign signs flooding Route 60 they tend to forget that there is an election going on,” Alexander said. In a dual congressional primary election, voters will have the opportunity to vote in only one of the races since they are for different political parties. “It is a dual primary, so when they go to vote, they will need to choose which election they want to vote in. They are not saying which party affiliation they are; they are just saying which election they want to vote in, and there is a difference,” Alexander said. If they do not want to openly declare which race they are voting in, voters can silently gesture to election officials which

JACQUELYN TART God finally made His difficult decision on Wednesday, May 9, 2018, to call home one of His most capable emissaries on earth, Jacquelyn Hollifield Tart. God's giving up Jacky's special contributions to mankind must have been hard for Him and made the final "come home" call a tough one. God is omniscient, omnipresent, and highly productive, as all clear thinking men and women know. From a cold, black vacuum, He can produce whole universes in just days with rest time to spare. But He's at his very best when He engages His big troop of foot-soldier faithful to perform His earthly "grunt work." That's why God created in special limited edition the likes of Jacky Tart – the command sergeant major of that troop – and blessed them with exceptionally high energy and an ever-undiminished need to share His ministry of love and joy. Through every day of her 72 years, Jacky – a sinner like all of us, yes, but one with a special, God-wrought capacity to love everyone and everything in her path – worked tirelessly in support of her doting and appreciative Heavenly Father. She was instinc-
tively driven to it and blessed for it. Jacky was the eldest child and namesake of her retired army sergeant major father (and personal hero), Jack T. Hollifield, and his World War II bride, Evelyn McSwain Hollifield (both deceased) – and the stepdaughter of Mrs. Ronnie Hollifield of Vero Beach, TART Florida. She served her nation 37 years as a U.S. Army civilian and, after retirement, worked another dozen – her 12 happiest working years ever – at the Jefferson Hotel in Richmond. The loves of her life (right after her Heavenly Father, she would say) were her two daughters, Erin Keck and Stacie Wilson and Stacie's family, which returned Jacky's love in countless ways, big and small, every day, husband, Michael Wilson, and daughters, Megan Wilson Conklin (and husband, Matt), Madison Keck Wilson, a junior at Virginia Commonwealth University, Mallory Keck Wilson, a junior at Powhatan (Virginia) County High School, Mia Wilson, a Powhatan eighth-grader and Mia's twin brother, Andrew Wilson, likely a future Army Ranger. Jacky's biggest fan – and the greatest recipient of her special love and giving nature – was her husband, Randal Gerald Tart, who loved his "Babes" beyond measure for more than 37 years and who counts his special relationship with Jacky as the greatest blessing of his enormously well blessed life. Jacky also loved and was beloved by her brother, Barry Hollifield; and her two sisters, Diane H. Strickler and husband, Millard and Rosie H. Melchior and husband, Don; and she absolutely cherished the love and esteem she always felt from all her brothers and sisters-in-law and her many nieces and nephews. Jacky was fortunate to die as she wanted; peacefully in the home she loved and in the loving embrace of family members she treasured. Jacky's family received friends from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. on Monday, May 14, 2018, at Bliley's-Central, 3801 Augusta Avenue, Richmond, Virginia. A Mass of Christian Burial was led by Father Renninger at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, May 15, at St. Mary Catholic Church, 9505 Gayton Road, Henrico. Burial immediately followed in the nearby Westhampton Memorial Park, 10000 Patterson Avenue, Richmond, and all comers were invited back to the church commons for fellowship and refreshments following her interment. The family requests that, in lieu of flowers, small gifts be made in Jacky's name to St Mary's Catholic Church or to the church of your choice. If anyone feels a compelling need to purchase flowers, Jacky would approve, but she would recommend a small, grocery store bouquet to be given to a favorite, living loved one – along with a big smile and her compliments.

Bigamist pleads guilty to lesser charge By Laura McFarland News Editor
POWHATAN – A Powhatan County man charged earlier this year with bigamy pleaded guilty last week to a reduced charge of entering into a prohibited marriage as part of a plea deal. Robert “Bobby” Adams, 36, of Powhatan entered a plea of guilty
to the misdemeanor charge of entering into a prohibited marriage when he appeared in Powhatan County Circuit Court on Tuesday, May 8. Adams was originally charged with bigamy, which is a felony. Circuit Court Judge Paul W. Cella accepted the plea and set Adams’ sentencing hearing for June 12. Rob Cerullo, deputy
commonwealth’s attorney, said he agreed to the plea deal because Adams’ situation was not that of a typical bigamy case with someone intentionally entering into two or more marriages. There is evidence that suggests Adams did not realize he was still married when he entered into his second marriage, Cerullo said. He also noted Adams only had
one minor offense on his criminal record and he didn’t want to create another felon unnecessarily. However, Cerullo did say he felt some punishment was needed and he would discuss the effect Adams’ actions had on the two women he married before giving his

Kaine talks about youth activism, opioid crisis, Virginiaâ€™s challenges Contributed Report More than 200 people warmly greeted Senator Tim Kaine and his wife, Anne Holton, former Secretary of Education for Virginia, when they visited Powhatan Courthouse on April 5, during the week-long U.S. Senate re-election campaign kick-off. Kathryn Waycaster, chair of the Powhatan County Democratic Committee, and Tina Winkler, co-chair of the Goochland County Democratic Committee, shared opening remarks by recognizing
those who helped make the event a success: Janie Dean and Traci Cifers of the County Seat restaurant; Arthur Chadwick of Chadwick & Son Orchids; Connie Moslow, founder of the Powhatan Free Clinic; Gail Hairston, president of the Powhatan NAACP; Angie Cabell, executive director of the Chamber of Commerce in Powhatan and 3rd District member of the Powhatan Board of Supervisors; Theresa Hash-Dobbins, clerk of the Powhatan Circuit Court; and the Powhatan High School Jazz Ensem-

Also present were 7th Congressional District Democratic primary candidates, Abigail Spanberger and Dan Ward; Vangie Williams, 1st Congressional District Democratic candidate; and Eileen Bedell, declared candidate for the 10th Virginia Senate District in 2019. Gene Rossi, former Democratic candidate for Lt. Governor of Virginia, welcomed Kaine and recognized Josephine Goodman, the first AfricanAmerican member of the Powhatan County Electoral Board. The senator presented a letter of congratulations he had written to Goodman. Kaine also presented Robin Lind, Goochland County Electoral Board secretary, with the Golden Ballot Award, which honored Goochland County for the highest voter turnout among all Virginia counties for the 2017 election.

Senator Tim Kaine plays harmonica with the Powhatan High School Jazz Ensemble.
The senator then addressed several key campaign issues. Citing the last two words of the Pledge of Allegiance, "for all," he stated he wants a Virginia that works for all, with "jobs for all, education for all, healthcare for all, security for all, and equality for all." Kaine said he was inspired by the youth across America who came together to support the Parkland student survivors in the March for Our Lives,
comparing them to the youth who previously marched for civil rights and against the Vietnam War. The senator also spoke about the need for criminal justice reform and the need to deal with opioid addiction and drug overdoses; in the U. S., 65,000 people died from drug overdoses this past year, whereas 58,000 died in the entire Vietnam War! "We are losing the war in our neighborhoods and homes.â€?
Kaine responded to questions from the audience on topics from banking reform to school safety and immigration. The senator then joined 16 members of the Powhatan High School Jazz Ensemble on the stage of the County Seat restaurant. After playing several songs on his harmonica, Kaine and Anne Holton mingled with attendees before leaving for his next stop in Danville.
rural preservation or rural residential. The intersections where they focused the development were where Route 60 meets Maidens Road, Academy Road, Dorset Road, Judes Ferry Road, South Creek One and Stavemill Road. The only node not based on Route 60 is in the courthouse area. One of the biggest changes the staff made on its map was removing a large chunk of village residential, village center and commerce center zoning in the area between the Courthouse Village area and the area around the development at Route 60 and Academy Road. Included in the board packet are photo examples of preferred development patterns with a node model. One photo shows a signalized intersection with higher intensity development that is closer to the roads. However, it still has high-quality landscaping located along the road frontage and sidewalks, paths, and other pedestrian accommodations are provided. The next photo shows preferred development patterns outside of nodes (along a corridor). In this case, there is a large wooded buffer between the road and development so passers-by canâ€™t easily see. The development is served by an internal roadway network; sidewalks, paths, and other pedestrian accommodations are provided, and most parking is located to the side or rear of the building.
â€œOne challenge is on a county scale trying to make the breaks on Route 60 is difficult because we are already starting to string nodes together,â€? Pompei said. As Pompei walked the four board members present through the changes and the intention behind certain changes, the supervisors had a lengthy and congenial discussion. While they didnâ€™t agree on everything, their discussion did build on each othersâ€™ knowledge and what kind of development they were hoping to see. Chairman Carson Tucker, who represents District 5, was not present. Some of the topics they discussed included: what concentration of commerce they actually want on Route 60; architectural standards; whether or not to focus development at signalized intersections; traffic impacts of the different options; how traffic might impact roads that feed into Route 60; making sure the different types of zoning are clearly defined. The board requested more clarification from the planning commission on the reasoning behind some of the designations on its version of the future land use map.
with and opposition to any development that would continue to increase traffic on what is already an overburdened road. Steve Mulherin asked the county to let the public see copies of a citizen survey the county is sending out to a select group of citizens. Ted Voorhees, county administrator, later responded and said the county is working on a way to put the survey out so everyone can see it and offer feedback, although the citizen survey responses would still move forward as planned. Mike Byerly asked about putting a stoplight in on Route 60 near Page Road because it is dangerous during high traffic areas to cross there. He also questioned the need to pay a consultant for a survey if the county is going to pay to send them out another way as well. Don Silberbauer suggested having a town hall or public meeting on the comprehensive plan once the board has made the adjustments it wants to get more public feedback. He talked about apartments, if they should ever try to come to Powhatan again, being more attractive and set off the beaten path. He also addressed the need for architectural standards. The board of supervisors has more workshops on the comprehensive plan scheduled for 6 p.m. on June 11 and 27 and Aug. 9 in the Village Building.

Festival embodies Powhatan’s agricultural roots By Laura McFarland
out still finding sand in your stuff weeks later). One little girl actually seemed to be attempting to swim in the corn, which was great fun. Next came the Livestock Expo, the tent where several animals were housed to allow the public to get up close and personal. These included a cow, sheep, goats,
hen attending the fourth annual Powhatan’s Celebration of the Horse & Ag Expo, I couldn’t help but walk away thinking it embodied everything a spring day in a rural county should. Let me set the scene for you. We all know the winter we just had was difficult at times, and the weather in the last few weeks has been all over the place. I am, unfortunately, one of those people susceptible to getting minor colds when the weather does its yo-yo thing, so it is never fun. On Friday, May 4, the day before the Celebration, the weather was warm. It wasn’t the hottest I have ever lived through by any scope of the imagination. I think I’ve mentioned growing up in Texas a few times, where it sometimes felt like you would get heatstroke going to check the mailbox. Still, for some reason, on this particular day, I just couldn’t seem to cool off. So it was with great happiness that I learned that, PHOTO BY LAURA MCFARLAND despite a possible threat of rain, the weather was going to be much more pleasant for the day of the Celebration A competitor brings in her horse during one of of the Horse & Ag Expo on May 5.

Scouting for the masses By Jim Ridolphi Contributing Columnist
After more than 100 years, the Boy Scouts of America is changing its name. The new version is Scouts BSA, a name that seems even more confusing or immediately obsolete than the well-worn and recognizable mantra. It shouldn’t surprise any of us that the announcement was accompanied by a predictable dose of outrage with one commentator exclaiming “it’s the end of another American institution.” Honestly, they are not upset with the name change per se; it’s the organization’s decision to admit girls to its troops and a previous decision to allow gays into the ranks. The name change was the final insult in a triad of unpopular decisions for many who support the organization’s original mission to provide outdoor and character-building experiences for young boys. It doesn’t escape my sense of inequity that the words of that mission were written in a period when women were not allowed to vote. But, I get the insistence that some things should be preserved, and old rules are not always obsolete. I had no preconceived opinion on the name change, or the additions to the ranks, so I thought back to my days as a scout. As I recalled my days as a just barely First Class scout at Troop 744, a barrage of great memories spent on camping trips or jamborees swirled in my head. At the time, I remember the scoutmaster telling us we were learning lessons that would last a lifetime. It didn’t seem like that at the time, as
we swam that dreaded mile, or cooked that full meal on an open fire, or performed countless other tasks required to earn merit badges, we had a blast. I was first exposed to cooking when our scoutmasters required us to assist in meal preparation. My first hikes were enjoyed with my fellow scouts, as well as my first, and, hopefully, last fall off White Oak Falls near Big Meadows. And, sure, there was plenty of foolishness along the way, but still lessons could be learned. Trying to avoid older scouts cutting the lines on your tent instilled a lasting reminder of the value of unity as our group of younger scouts fought back by releasing their canoes into Buggs Island Lake. The memories brought a smile to my face as I remembered countless good times spent on Old Rag Mountain or Brady Saunders. Upon completion, I couldn’t think of a single activity that wouldn’t, shouldn't or couldn’t be enjoyed by young girls, or why those same lessons should be reserved for males only. Now, scouting is not for everyone, and I can’t say I enjoyed all those merit badge challenges, but I do believe that the great experience of spending time in the great outdoors with responsible leadership is an opportunity that should be available to all. I also came to the conclusion that the idea of young boys and girls spending time in team-building exercises that highlight self-reliance and independence is probably an idea that has come of age. Besides, why should girls be denied the pleasure of a midnight snipe hunt? 8460 Times Dispatch Blvd., Mechanicsville, Va 23116 Phone: 804-746-1235 Toll Free: 877-888-0449 Fax: 804-730-0476

cow on a display I have seen used for other agriculturethemed events. The look of concentration on their faces as they attempt to make water squirt out of the plastic udders is always amusing. The horse show once again showed the range of talent not only in local 4-H and FFA programs but in individuals of all ages. It was fascinating to watch the contestants and their animals show off the countless hours of work they have put in together perfecting certain gaits, poses or skills. Getting a horse show ready involves a great deal of hard work, and they should be commended. Then, of course, there were the vendors, nonprofits, food, silent auction, raffle and more, all set against the beautiful backdrop of Jacques Gits’ property on Rocky Oak Road. All together, they made the event a wonderful day to spend out among your neighbors in Powhatan. As the Powhatan County Board of Supervisors continues to evaluate and update the Comprehensive Plan, there has been discussion about just how important agriculture still is to the county. I think we can all agree Powhatan is still mostly rural, but you have to look a little harder to see all of the agricultural aspects. But then, that’s why events like the Celebration of the Horse, Earth Day, or the Farm Day put on by Powhatan County Public Schools for its students – events that bring the agriculture and celebration of all things rural to you – are still so important for the county. They demonstrate that agriculture is part of what this county has always been, and I believe part of what people want it to continue to be in the future.
L E T T E R S TO T H E E D I TO R Town hall meeting looks at county’s future Dear Editor, District 2 Supervisor Larry Nordvig hosted a town hall meeting for all Powhatan residents. The objective was to depict how Powhatan could look in the future. It showed an attractive, well planned community and a “place” where visitors see Powhatan as a destination. All of these benefits while controlling and / or reducing residential real estate taxes through a combination of sensible commercial business and architecture that had a common theme. A perfect world? Not exactly, but darn close. The meeting was interactive with Mr. Nordvig presenting a slide show and entertaining residents’ comments and questions at the conclusion. Based on comments, the vision was very well received. The presentation explained that real estate taxes – through normal inflation and the need to add, replace or repair county equipment or facilities – will be going up. However, the ability to contain and even reduce taxes is attainable. How you may ask? Attracting the right kind of business! What is the right kind of business? Mr. Nordvig pointed to a software firm located in the Oakridge development on Route 60. Never seen it! The reason is it’s tucked in the back hidden from the travelling public. BINGO! This is the idea behind commercial development going forward. Smart development where parking, offices, restaurants, and the like are discretely positioned behind greenery and located toward the rear of properties. Can this be done? Absolutely! Where are we and how can the vision be realized? Currently there are county ordinances (laws) on the books that, if acted upon, would prod developers to build just like mentioned above. Are we doing this? NO. For many years
the supervisors have campaigned, had meetings on the subject, embodied an authority (Economic Development Authority) that has done zero to solicit this approach or attract new business. In the past two years Powhatan spent $100,000 for a consultant to provide a roadmap on what and how to do this. The result? Zero. The planning commission has created a Comprehensive Plan that sets up county land to accommodate this development approach, yet the board of supervisors have yet to embrace the plan and in fact are looking toward pushing for uncontrolled growth under the impression that more “rooftops” will foster commercial development. True, but not right. Fast food drive-in’s, minimalls, auto parts outlets, gas stations, etc. produce lots more traffic and passthrough patronage. This is not what Powhatan needs. Some residents (1,400 +/-) will receive a survey that asks, among other things, what do residents want to see here in Powhatan. Here again, a consultant created the survey questions. Have we learned nothing?!? Just about every business in the past has come to Powhatan on their own volition. Why? Because smart business owners see Powhatan as fertile ground. They want to come here. So let’s help get the right business in the county. Contact your supervisors and tell them you want them to review and embrace Mr. Nordvig’s vision. Ask each of them for their own town hall meeting. Let each tell you how they see the county growing. Then at election time hold them to their word. This letter is submitted on behalf of Powhatan Citizens Alliance. Don Silberbauer Powhatan County

erty on Manakin Town Ferry Road from August to October 2017 as part of an investigation into what deputies thought was a property where chickens were being raised to be used in cock fighting. When a search warrant was executed in October, officers seized 303 game birds, one Great Pyrenees and two pigs. The chickens were found with wattles and combs that had been trimmed in a way consistent with cock fighting birds. They also seized 122 short knives, which are strapped onto the chickens’ spurs to fight. Also seized were waxed string, mole tape, sparring muffs and boots, and supplements and medications used to enhance their ability to fight. Many of the birds were emaciated because they had not been fed.

When law enforcement officials raided a property in Powhatan where it was suspected chickens were being raised for cock fighting, they seized 303 birds. Other evidence found on hand were 122 short knives, waxed string, mole tape, sparring muffs and boots, and supplements and medications used to enhance their ability to fight.
The cases were prosecuted by senior assistant attorney general K. Michelle Welch and assistant attorney general Kelci Block from Herring’s first in the nation Animal Law Unit with assistance from the Office of Powhatan Commonwealth’s Attorney Richard Cox, the Office of Powhatan Sheriff Bradford W. Nunnally, the Virginia Animal Fighting Task Force, Louisa CART, Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and the ASPCA, according to a press release from Herring’s office. In 2015, Herring created the nation’s first OAG Animal Law Unit to serve as a training and prosecution resource for state agencies, investiga-
ing is closely tied to illegal gambling, drug and alcohol crimes, and violence against animals has been shown to be linked to violence towards other people. To date the unit has handled more than 667 matters, to include trainings, prosecutions, and consultations. Cases like this involving cruelty to chickens present less of a challenge when it comes to conviction but a bigger hurdle when it comes to adequate sentencing, said A.K. Taylor, an investigator and member of the board of directors for the Virginia Animal Fighting Task Force. “Chickens are looked at differently than domestic animals. In their heads, people say, ‘We eat chickens.’ Most peo-
dogs, most people think of them as a companion,” Taylor said. As the state garners more and more convictions in these cases and as people become more familiar with how violent cock fighting is, Taylor said she is seeing criminals receive heavier sentences. If law enforcement can secure a guilty verdict and the offender is barred from owning animals, preferably for life, it is a win, she added. “I do feel there are stronger sentences coming down the more we find it and the more we stop it. I wish people would understand the horrific nature of it and disassociate it from he chickens you eat and put a little bit more weight behind it,” she said.

also had a child together. No issues were raised at the time, and in fact it was only when Adams’ second wife was about to file for divorce in late 2017 that she learned her marriage to Adams might not be valid, Cerullo said. She contacted the Powhatan County Sheriff’s Office, who investigated along with the commonwealth’s attorney’s office, and it was revealed that Adams’ divorce from his first wife was not final until about six months into his second marriage. When entering the guilty plea in court last week, defense attorney Thomas Gordon told Cella this was a case of absolute liability where regardless of what Adams thought or his intentions, he was guilty of entering into
2010, she filed for divorce, and that September, Adams filed an answer. However, while they did not reconcile, neither party made any more motions in the divorce proceedings. An order to dismiss filed in circuit court on Oct. 29, 2014, lists this divorce case as one of several being dismissed because there had not been any activity on them in more than three years. Adams’ first wife filed for divorce again on Dec. 10, 2014, and the final divorce decree was finalized on March 10, 2015, according to court records. However, before any of that took place, Adams married a second woman on Sept. 13, 2014, in Powhatan, according to court records. The couple

However, he said he planned to speak more to Adams’ knowledge and intentions at the June 12 sentencing hearing.

No One Knows Powhatan Better…It’s Our Home! Serving Powhatan for 29 Years

Indians past and present rally around PHS alumnus Contributed Report
n the halls, stadium, gym and fields of Powhatan High School, one often hears, “Once an Indian, always an Indian!” In the 1980s, this same line echoed, as it does today. As we well know though, words mean nothing without action! Let’s paint the picture. It’s 1987, Robbie Urbine, Tommy Mitchell and Bobby Quinn are all teammates on Jim Woodson’s football team. Mitchell, the quarterback, could never imagine that he would be calling the plays in 2017 as he did in 1987! Quinn was diagnosed with ALS in April 2017. ALS, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. When Mitchell discovered this diagnosis, he went to Urbine and said, “We need to do something to help Bobby.” Urbine suggested that he call Wear a Smile, Share a Smile Inc., Billy Dixon (Monacan Chief- Class of 1984), from Dixon’s Auction jumps on board and a huge fundraiser named “Country Kickin’ ALS” was launched. On October 21, 2017, organizers put their energy together and hosted the first Country Kickin’ ALS event at Steam Bell Beer Works. Literally throwing the event together in two months, they had a wonderful day of friendship and fellowship, music, dancing, raffles and auctions! Some of the 2017 Powhatan High School football players came with Coach Woodson to volunteer for the afternoon. Some present didn’t know that Quinn’ football number in the ‘80s was “33” and lo and behold, in walks number “33” from this year’s team. It was an incredible day that allowed organizers to hand a $14,000 check to Michele and Bobby Quinn to offset life’s expenses since Bobby is unable to work. Now, a second Country Kickin’ ALS event is scheduled for Saturday, June 2 at The Great American Ranch, a new business in Midlothian, with a generous and energetic owner and staff (Mauro Garrido). The event begins at noon and goes until midnight. This event promises to be even bigger and better than last year, with 80 percent of the proceeds going to Bobby and Michele Quinn and 20 percent going to Harper’s Hope, the Research Branch of ALS! A full schedule of musical have donated their time and talents: Anderson Highway, Danny Kensy, Dan Nichols, Shaun Fenner, Saddle Jack, South of James and closing the event is national performer Mickie James! Kickin’ Country Line Dancing will give several sessions of line dancing instruction. A Kid’s Zone, complete with a bounce house, face painting, games, corn-hole and potentially a petting zoo will be available from noon to 3 p.m. The Great American Ranch will be donating a per-

All too often, we focus on what we “can’t” do in situations versus identifying what we “can” do! We “can’t” fix ALS, we “can’t” change Bobby’s diagnosis, but we “can” relieve the financial burdens brought about by everyday living. We “can” support Bobby and Michele emotionally to help them through this terrible time. We “can” introduce them to people who understand, who have lived through this horrible disease.

Powhatan’s Conner earns career win No. 500 By Billy Fellin Sports Editor
What’s the best way to celebrate your 500th career win? Go get win number 501. That’s exactly what Powhatan’s baseball team, headed up by coach Gregg Conner, did on May 11 as the Indians came from behind and defeated Louisa 12-2. “We just battled and battled,” Conner said of the win over the Lions. “I just told
them to hang close and see what happens. And, look what happened.” What happened was an 11-run sixth inning put together by the Indians. After Louisa starting pitcher Robert Grubbs had kept the Indians in check for the first five innings of the game, Powhatan exploded in the sixth to turn what was a close game into a win by the slaughter rule. Grubbs held the Indians to just three hits in the first four innings. In that same span, Powhatan struck out seven times as
a team. Powhatan’s Tommy Preston was dueling with Grubbs and while more Lions reached base than Indians in the first four innings, the Powhatan defense was playing its usual lights-out style. The Lions got on the board in the top of the third inning, when a run scored on a passed ball, and in the fifth when a double to the outfield scored a run. The Indians scored their first run of the game one inning earlier after Matthew Church knocked in Brad Painter on
a double. Church was dynamic for the Indians at the plate and in the field, as he made a diving stop for the first out of the game and made several difficult plays look easy against the Lions. “I played solid and comfortable,” he said. “I tried to play easy and relaxed.” Church said that third base is a new position for him this season, as he’s used to playing second base. “I’ve taken a lot of ground balls at see INDIANS, pg. 3B

Long didn’t advance past first as the inning ended when Nick Dawson popped out to first.

Powhatan lacrosse teams honor five seniors By Billy Fellin Sports Editor
The Powhatan lacrosse teams hosted a doubleheader against Charlottesville on May 8 and between the games took the time to honor five total seniors. On the girls side, the Indians honored Reagan Thomas and Brooke Nevius. Thomas said that the improvement she’s seen in the team and program overall has been “crazy.” “To go from one win to being on track for a 50-50 season, I think that’s just crazy to have done that in just one year,” she said. Thomas has also seen a transition of the overall mindset of the program as to how it approaches the game. “I think, at first, we were low-stress and just out here to have fun,” she said. “Now, we’ve grown into a program where we still have all the fun that we used to have, but the winning exponentially grows it.” Thomas plans to attend the University of Virginia to study computer science and chemistry. Nevius said that she’s enjoyed watching the team grow as a whole since its fruition. “We’ve grown closer together over the years,” she said. “That’s really shown on the field with the team. We work together as a team. It isn’t just one per-
son doing everything. “We have just worked hard every year and we’ve just gotten better and better. That has shown all year with our wins and our losses. We just work really well together,” she said. Nevius plans to attend George Mason University and study music technology and minor in forensic science. Coach Laura Camp wrote in an email that her seniors have provided valuable leadership both on and off the field. “Reagan consistently gives 200 percent in both practice and games,” she wrote. “She is a huge asset and will leave a big role for the younger players to fill. Brooke is a true example of resilience. She has had to overcome several injuries this season, yet still comes to every practice with a positive attitude.” On the field against the Black Knights, Thomas led the Indians with four goals in the 14-10 win. Michala Taylor scored three goals, while Anna Camp, AnnaGrace Causey and Ashley Van Buskirk each added two goals. Nailah Chambers had one goal on the night. On the boys side, Harlan Menger, Chris Medina and Jacob Marshall were honored prior to the Indians’ game against the Black Knights. Menger said that it’s “amazing” to be a senior on the team and to be in-

volved in the program. “This program has grown so much ever since I’ve been in the program my freshman year,” he said. “I’ve played with some of the most amazing guys.” Like Thomas and Nevius, Menger has been a member of the program since its inception and he said that it’s been a pivotal part of his growth as a player and as a person. “It’s given me skills that allow me to go to the next level,” he said. “I really thank them for that and all the coaches I’ve had through the years. They’ve all supported me.” In November, Menger signed to play lacrosse at the Savannah College of Art and Design. Medina wrote in an email that being one of three seniors on the team has meant a lot to him. “To be able to come into this team my first year at Powhatan and play such a huge role on the team gave me a lot of confidence,” he wrote. “Coach Joe Niles also gave me lots of freedom on both sides of the ball and let me play my game naturally, which helped me play better. His coaching helped me elevate my game this year to another level.” Medina joined the Indians after moving to the area from New York. Medina will join Menger in playing lacrosse in college as he will play at the University of Tampa. “I received an invite to a prospect camp for the University of Tampa and it caught my attention,” he wrote. “I had not contacted them until this summer when I moved from New York to Powhatan. I met Coach Tom Diehl, who had coached at many great college lacrosse programs, and I reached out to him to help improve my game the offseason before my last season. After talking to him about college, he told me he knew Coach Whipple at Tampa and that he would put in a good word for me. The rest was history.” Medina wrote that Tampa was the choice for him since it combined being a great school, a great lacrosse program and being in an area he likes and has family in. He plans to become a physician’s assistant. Medina wrote that he will remember the bonds he built in the Powhatan community in such a short

time. “I joined the fall ball team and from the very first practice, every single coach and player on the team talked to me and made me feel welcome,” he wrote. “I could not be more grateful I had the chance to play with such amazing players. I also have to thank my friends from outside the lacrosse team. They brought me in, built friendships that will last forever and gave me memories I will never forget. They are my family and I could not thank them enough for everything they have done for me.” Marshall said that the team has been like a family to him over his team with the Indians. “I’ll always have their
back and they’ll always have mine,” he said. “I didn’t want our last home game to go like this. It was a fun run. The boys will be ready next year.” Marshall also played for the Indians lacrosse team since its inception into VHSL competition. “To build the way we have in three short years, it’s amazing,” he said. “Sure, we have a losing record, but we are playing these teams close. This game, we only lost by two. We’re showing improvement. We’re excelling at a rate that no other team is.” Marshall plans to attend John Tyler to become an RN with plans to learn more through a hospital and become a nurse. Powhatan boys la-
crosse coach Joe Niles wrote in an email that his seniors have been the “anchor” of the team this year. “They are a super group of hard working student athletes,” he wrote. “All three of them are amazing lacrosse players who have a true passion for the game. They have also been mentors for many of the younger players on the field this year.” On the field, the Indians fell to Charlottesville 12-10. Corey Palmore led the Indians with four goals, while Ethan Niles had three, Carter Massengill had two and Jared Somerville, Branden Palmore and Medina added one each.

PJHS wins back-to-back crowns for first time Sports Editor
In April, the Powhatan Junior High baseball team found itself on the wrong end of a 2-1 final against Louisa during the Powhatan Baseball Invitational. It was the first loss of the season for the Indians and turned out to be a bit of a blessing in disguise. “We were all just ready to come back and play again,” coach Ott Mullins said. “We had gotten a bit overconfident. I think that loss was very timely in our success. After that, we just came out and played well. I told them after (that game) to not cry over spilled milk. I told them we’d see (Louisa) again the next day. It was a good loss.” Powhatan came back from that loss to go on a run through the consolation bracket and defeated

practice,” he said. In the top of the sixth, Jordan Shumate relieved Preston on the mound and while he allowed a leadoff double, Shumate shut down the Lions after that with two ground balls and a strikeout. Cody Willis led off the sixth with a double and scored when Jacob Beil hit a groundball to shortstop that the Lions defender couldn’t handle, which tied the game. Brandon Eike worked a walk, followed by a tworun double off the bat of Nick Rini. Tymothy Hart singled, which moved Rini to third. Hunter Hopkins knocked Rini in with a single of his own that started a run of five consecutive hitters to bring home runs. Painter singled, Church and Logan Amiss both doubled and Willis singled, all of which brought home runs. Beil reached base again on a walk and was eventually brought home on a double by Tanner Ritt which ended the game in a 12-2 slaughter rule final. “We just found a way,” Conner said. “That’s what
Louisa twice in the tournament final to win the invitational. “After that, we settled in to become the team that we all knew we could be,” Mullins said. From that point on, the Indians did not lose a game the rest of the season. That undefeated run carried the team all the way to the Southside Middle School Conference title game, which ended in a 4-0 final in favor of the Indians and secured back-toback championships for the first time in the team’s history. It is the third conference crown for the team in the last four seasons. “We had a really good year,” Mullins said. “It was amazing.” It was also the first time that the team had ever won an invitational tournament and the conference crown in the same season.
According to the team’s Facebook page that recounted the events of the final, the Indians scored a run in the first inning, another in the third and two more in the fifth during the championship final against Nottoway. The Indians offense was a force this season, as the team outscored their opponents 250-28. Mullins said that this year, the team bought into working hard and improving. “There was some terrible practice days this year,” he said. “It was freezing cold. The whole month of March practically was so windy, you could barely stand to be outside, let alone practice baseball. But they are just a resilient bunch of kids. They worked hard and they wanted each other to succeed. They’re a hard working bunch of kids. On top
good teams do. It’s a big win for us. It keeps our momentum going.” The win was a fitting celebration for Conner as the Indians extended their winning streak to 13 games. Powhatan defeated Charlottesville 12-0 on May 8 for the Conner’s 500th career win as head coach of the Indians. His players celebrated by dunking Conner with their water cooler. “It’s a good win for Powhatan baseball,” he said. “We’ve had a lot of great players, great assistant coaches and great support from the community. I’m lucky to be part of it.” Conner was quick to point out that longtime coach Bob Baltimore has been a huge part of the success of the Indians baseball program. Baltimore has been on the Indians coaching staff for 50 years and the baseball field at Powhatan High School is named after him. Conner has been the Indians head coach for 34 years and has won two state championships with the Indians. The first state title came in 2008 in a 7-4 win
over Allegheny in Group AA. Then, in 2012, the Indians won the title again in a 4-1 win over Brookville. “Our program has been successful, and over the long haul we’ve been able to sustain what we do,” he said. “It’s a tribute to the players, coaches and this community.” According to the Virginia High School League record book, as well as information from the Virginia High School Coaches Association website, Conner is the Richmondarea leader in wins for baseball coaches. Powhatan’s Jacob Frame and Zach Tillery combined to allow just three hits against Charlottesville. Amiss was 1 for 3 with 2 RBIs, while Aidan Voorhees was 1 for 2 with an RBI. The Indians also defeated Monticello on May 7 by a score of 7-2. Eike was 3 for 4 with 4 RBIs against the Mustangs. Powhatan faced Fluvanna on May 15 and will host Monticello again on May 17 as the season winds down and the playoffs approach.
of that, they are a really fun group of kids.” Overall, Mullins said that the team was a good unit overall. “Top to bottom we had a great batting lineup,” he said. “There were no easy outs in there.” One player that stood out for Mullins was Zach Karanian, who didn’t play on the team last season. Despite missing a season, Karanian didn’t miss a beat when he played this year. “He came out and he was amazing,” Mullins said. “He was toasting balls over the fence in practice. That gives everyone something to shoot for. He hit cleanup for us all year. He was just hammering the ball. He was someone that really paced us offensively the whole year.” Mullins also said that catcher Brandon Lyman
did a great job behind the plate this season with handling all the different pitchers that took the mound. “We were able to throw whatever we wanted to,” he said. “If he’s knocking down those pitches, you can back a lot of curveballs in the dirt for some strikes. It opens a whole new game for you if you can trust your catcher like that. Most coaches know that is something that helps your team if you can trust your catcher with the game.” The assistant coaches for the team also played a large role in the success of the Indians this season, according to Mullins. “The two assistants we have, Phil Nusbaum and Jarrett Fields, both of those guys gave 100 percent of their effort to every player on the team,” he said. “When you have that
going for you, that continuity, that really showed dividends all season long.” This team will certainly be memorable for how much fun this team was to be around, Mullins said. “I can’t say that I’ve coached a more fun team,” he said. “I’ll remember how we got where we were as a team. I’m just really happy and blessed with the support we get from the athletic director, the administration and Powhatan Parks and Rec. It’s unbelievable. Most of all, I’m proud of the way our assistant coaches at the middle school got with the program. We have three coaches now that are buying into that concept and it is working out well. It’s showing up with the seniors that are at the high school now.”

Indians honor seniors on court, defeat Black Knights By Billy Fellin Sports Editor
On May 8, the Powhatan girls tennis team honored its four seniors prior to the match against Charlottesville. Takara “TK” Barnwell, Emmy Melchert, Ali Anderson and Sydney Dorn were honored by coach Jennifer Campbell and their teammates prior to the match. “I’ve seen everybody from freshman to now juniors, and I’ve supported all of them and they’ve supported me,” Barnwell said. Barnwell has been playing tennis for three years at Powhatan. “I enjoy being around my teammates,” she said. “I enjoy playing the actual sport and not being so aggressive.” Barnwell said that the team’s performance this year has been due to practice, practice and more practice. “We’ve had a lot of team bonding as well,” she said. “Being older, I do my own thing. But, when they need me, I’m there for them. I’m like a mom.” She said that she’ll remember how “awesome” the team has become since
she started three years ago. Barnwell plans to attend John Tyler and will transfer to Virginia Commonwealth University to study dentistry. Of the seniors, Barnwell is the most experienced in terms of years playing tennis for Powhatan. Dorn, Melchert and Anderson are all in their first seasons playing tennis for the Indians. “It’s my first and last year,” Dorn said. “They’ve really made me feel like a member of a family.” Two of Dorn’s friends encouraged her to try out for the team, despite Dorn “not knowing anything” about tennis. “It’s a newfound passion,” she said. While she admitted it was intimidating coming into a completely new sport, she has learned quite a lot in a short amount of time. “It’s a lot of being solo,” she said. “You play by yourself, and then you play doubles. I’ve learned a lot about myself.” Dorn said that she plans to play club tennis while in college. She said that she is planning to attend Mary Washington and study chemistry.
While Melchert is a new member of the Indians tennis team, she was familiar with the game beforehand. “My family plays tennis,” she said. “We play over the summer and on the weekends. I was really busy every year before now. I cut some things back so that I could be a member of the team.” Melchert said that she’s thoroughly enjoyed her time as a member of the Indians girls tennis team. “It’s a lot of fun,” she said. “Everyone has been really nice and teaching me how to do things. It’s been so much fun, I’m really glad that I did it.” Melchert said she plans to attend Virginia Tech and study engineering. Anderson is no stranger to Powhatan athletics as she was a member of the girls basketball team. “Tennis was something that I always wanted to do, but I was too scared to try out,” she said. “Everyone made it feel like a family. There wasn’t that much pressure; we’re all having fun.” Anderson said that a trip over the summer to see the US Open is what gave her the push she needed to try out for the team.

L to R: TK Barnwell, Sydney Dorn, Ali Anderson and Emmy Melchert were honored as the Indians girls tennis team seniors on May 8.
“I loved it,” she said. “I was so excited about it and I really wanted to play.” Anderson has advanced from the number seven spot to the number two spot in singles. She said that she’s been “putting in a lot of time” both at practice and outside of practice. Anderson is headed to the University of Virginia
to study mathematics and possibly become an actuary. She said that she’ll remember the tennis team most about her time at Powhatan. “It was something I really wanted to do,” she said. “It’s my goal that I accomplished.” Powhatan came out on top with a 5-4 win over their Jefferson District
foe. Melchert and Dorn each won their singles matches by scores of 10-3 and 10-1, respectively. McKenna Adams won her match 10-0 and Haley Balzer won her match 105. In doubles, Barnwell and Dorn combined to defeat Rachel Barnard and Lucia Adday 8-2 to clinch the win for the Indians.
After Dawson reached, Carson Connor struck out to end the game via the slaughter rule. “We’ve got to hit the ball a little better,” Poore said. The Knights advanced to the semifinals after a 12-2 win over Kenston Forest on May 7. Noa Hasty earned the win for the Knights in that game as he pitched six innings and allowed two runs on five hits. Roudabush led the way for the Blessed Sacrament Huguenot offense, going 3 for 4 with a home run and 2 RBIs. Tyler Hall and Robbie Kurtz were each 2 for 4 with 2 RBIs, and Long was 3 for 4 with three runs scored. Poore said that the Knights advancing as far as they did in the conference tournament was a
sign of good things in the future for his young squad. Despite the loss, the Knights qualified for the Virginia Independent Athletic Association state tournament and hit the road on May 14 for the opening round game against No. 1 Walsingham Academy. “We can win,” Poore said about the matchup with the Trojans. “We just have to play well.” Poore said that by the time the VCC tournament rolls around next season, the Knights will have had a lot more experience under their belts. “We’re trying to play in the fall together,” he said. “So, that’s another season. By the time we get here (next year), the kids will be bigger and stronger. I’m looking forward to it.”

Blessed Sacrament Huguenot starter Reilly Dickerson was chased in the second and was relieved by Kemper Roudabush. Roudabush was able to stop the bleeding and end the second inning with no further damage done on the scoreboard. The Knights were unable to respond in the top of the third inning as they went down in order. Southampton Academy’s offense scored three more runs in the bottom of the third inning to pad the lead further. The Knights went down in order in the fourth and Long reached base in the fifth inning on a walk, but he was thrown out at second on a fielder’s choice off Dawson’s bat.
