Outmaneuver the competition
Regarding the options available to provide water to Zion Crossroads, Fluvanna
County Supervisor Joe Chesser was recently quoted as saying, “We’ve been
studying and studying and studying. We
need to act.”
Isn’t that exactly what Marvin Moss
and his cohorts said regarding the school
– when they were explicitly warned that
we were being overcharged for the large
debt we were about to undertake? We’re
now suing the financial adviser for the
bad advice we were given!
An incremental approach for supplying water to Zion Crossroads, supported
by fiscally responsible supervisors, is attractive. Utilize available excess capacity
at the Department of Corrections women’s prison (150,000
gallons per day).
Build a pipeline
from the prison to
Zion Crossroads.
This won’t add to
the cost of a higher
capacity system that
will come later, because
it will be part of any future system expansion. This low cost first step can be
built for about $3.5million. Let’s see if
the pipeline actually brings economic
development, and only then consider expansion of the system to accommodate
more customers.
The Aqua Virginia approach would
risk more than $20 million of taxpayer
money, while Aqua risks nothing. Success would depend on Fluvanna County
selling most of the water to Louisa County! Even more extreme, a ‘resurrected’
James River Water Authority approach,
a terribly misguided notion, would likely
cost Fluvanna more than $30 million!
Louisa County is our competitor for
economic development. Why would we
do anything to facilitate more growth on
their side of the county line? If Fluvanna
can offer water at Zion, and Louisa cannot, guess where the economic development will take place?
If Fluvanna and Louisa share access to
the water Fluvanna supplies, we’ll end
up in bidding wars to entice businesses
to locate on the Fluvanna side of the line.
The resulting tax and infrastructure incentives will give away much of the revenue benefit of economic development.
We have the means to outmaneuver our
competition. Let’s take advantage of this
unique opportunity.
Take an incremental approach. It is the
taxpayer’s money that will pay for the
pipeline; please spend as little as possible until we get a taste of success. Keep
the water in Fluvanna - don’t facilitate
more growth in Louisa.

Meet John Douglass
Many of my friends here at the Lake
are Republicans. I am a Democrat.
Though we usually avoid discussing
politics, there is a Democratic candidate
this year that I hope my friends will agree
warrants crossover consideration by Republicans. He is General John Douglass,
a retired Air Force
brigadier general
running for Congress in our 5th
District, opposing Representative Robert Hurt.
General Douglass
previously served as a military staffer
on Ronald Reagan’s National Security
Council, is a former Assistant Secretary
of the Navy, and is a military intelligence
and technology expert. He also served
as president and CEO of Aerospace Industries Association which represents
the nation’s leading manufacturers and
suppliers of civil, military and business
aircraft.
General Douglass was asked by Time
Magazine columnist, Joe Klein, why he
was a Democrat. His response was, “I’m
too progressive on social issues. I just
think everybody should get a fair shot
at the dream, but we seem to be drifting away from that.” In Klein’s interview
Douglass made clear his support for
equal rights for all - including homosexuals. He also makes clear his opposition
to the proposed open pit uranium mine
in Pittsylvania County, which he calls a
“potential disaster to the environment.”
I encourage Lake residents, Democrats
and Republicans, as well as other concerned citizens in Fluvanna County to
meet General Douglass. The Fluvanna
Democratic Committee is sponsoring a
brunch at the Lake Monticello Clubhouse
on October 14 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

where General Douglass will speak and
answer questions. Details will be published at a later date.
One more thing – General Douglass is
71 years old. His high energy is remarkable, but he is not running for Congress
to enhance his credentials or further
his career. He has been quite happy and
quite occupied in semi-retirement on his
farm in Fauquier County. His candidacy
and tremendous dedication of time and
travel throughout the 5th District is for
his country – for you, me, and our children and grandchildren.

For Romney-Ryan
As a long-time professional economist
I encourage voting for the Romney-Ryan
ticket to help grow the economy, create
jobs and reduce the deficit. President
Obama’s job performance over the last
four years has been extremely weak. Even
he gives himself a grade of “Incomplete.”
As a college professor I have given many
“Incomplete” grades to students and this
is a self-admission of bad performance
since it means the student did not meet
the goals established in the time allowed.
President Obama likes to take credit for
the recovery as weak as it is. In fact, over
the past 60 years the U.S. economy has
grown in approximately 90 percent of
the quarters and 90 percent of the years
so it has a natural built in bias for growth,
typically at rates of 2.5 to 3 percent
or more. Also, the economy usually
grows well in excess of these rates after
a recession. The Obama economy has
barely grown and this weak growth is
evidence that his policies of excessive
regulation, deriding business success and
reckless spending are actually holding us
back. For the sake of your own economic
wellbeing and especially for our children
and grandchildren I encourage Fluvanna
voters to select the Romney-Ryan ticket
in November.
Ron Davis
Lake Monticello
Misleading picture
Mrs. (Mary) Boyd’s letter to the editor
(Sept. 6 issue) paints a misleading picture.
Despite President Obama’s claim to making education more affordable, the opposite is true. The State Council for Higher
Education in Virginia report on tuition
for the 2011 and 2012 academic years reports that Virginia college costs this year,
in terms of percentage of disposable income, will be at a record 43.7%, surpassing last year’s record of 41.9%.
College is less affordable, not more,
and throwing Pell Grant money at colleges does nothing to encourage them
to hold down costs (note the continued
tuition increases during the recession…
no belt tightening, just complaints about
reduced state funding).
Out-of-control college tuition hikes are
decimating middle class savings and putting middle class children under huge
amounts of debt. President Obama would
like us to give him credit for using our tax
dollars (I pay federal income tax) to fund
somebody else’s college education while
I watch my savings dwindle away and my
kids go into debt. That’s obscene.
President Obama also tried to kill the
D.C. Charter School Program…twice. Minority students from these schools pleaded with President Obama for continued
funding, but were denied in 2009. It only
exists today because of the Republican
sponsored SOAR Act and in fact funding
was not in President Obama’s latest budget proposal. The reason has nothing to
do with performance and everything to
do with President Obama’s obligation to
the National Education Association. Finally, isn’t it ironic that Mrs. Boyd urges a
vote for President Obama and more federal education dollars while praising the
waivers of NCLBA, a Federal Program?
Talk about trying to have it both ways.
Ken Duffau
Lake Monticello
Abysmal results
In her Sept. 6 letter, Mary Boyd endorses President Obama because he will “invest” more money in education. But the
problem is not that we are spending too
little.
Since 1970 total education spending in
America increased from $4,060 to over
$10,000 per pupil in constant dollars (adjusted for inflation), yet reading scores
and graduation rates haven’t improved.
When the Department of Education was
created, America led the world in science
and math. Now, the U.S. ranks 17th in science and 25th in math.
Academic research backs this up. Researcher Eric Hanushek studied per pupil spending and concluded that we have
increased spending for decades with no
sign that student performance has improved. The issue, he says, is getting productive use of our spending.
The fact is that we are paying for a first
class education system but we’re not getting one. Both parties are at fault. President Bush doubled K-12 spending during
his administration but we have little to
show for it.
Ms. Boyd praises Obama for granting
waivers to No Child Left Behind but he
only grants them in exchange for more
federal control over those states’ school
systems. His “Race to the Top” program
also expands federal control. In fact
Obama’s solution to every problem is
more federal spending and more federal
control.
We’ve been doing that for decades and
the results are abysmal. Mitt Romney
supports school choice (including vouchers), local control, innovation, increased
transparency, and welcoming new education providers (including for-profit
schools). This approach has worked well
in Sweden where vouchers and school
choice promoted innovation and competition. The result is significantly improved academic performance in both
their public and private schools.
A vote for Obama is a vote to expand a
failed approach. Mitt Romney will spend
our education dollars more wisely.
Sam T. Edwards

Disease prevention
The Republican Party advocates
the repeal of the Patient Protection
and Affordable care Act. They call it
“Obamacare” so they don’t have to
emphasize “patient protection” and
“affordable care.” So far they have not
articulated any specific content for a
replacement.
The Affordable Care Act, which the U.S.
Supreme Court recently upheld provides
incentives to fitness and wellness
not previously addressed in health
insurance policies. A recent article in the
Washington Post highlighted provisions
of the law designed to promote “wellness,
fitness and prevention.” Many of these
provisions have been in effect since the
inception of the law. Under this law there
is a long list of wellness services available
to insured’s free of any co-payment.
The wellness services that are available
as part of the insurance contract that
require no co-payment include:
• For adults: Screening for colorectal
cancer and depression, immunizations,
obesity counseling, help quitting
smoking
• For women: Screenings for gestational
diabetes and cervical cancer, wellwoman visits
• For children: Behavioral assessments,
body mass index measurements, vision
and lead screening
• For seniors: Under Medicare, bone
mass
measurement,
prostate
cancer screening, cholesterol, and
cardiovascular screening, flu shots.
The article states “a large portion of
(current) healthcare costs are attributable
to preventable disease.” Research has
shown that when cost barriers are
removed, “people are much more likely
to use (such) services.” According to
the Kaiser foundation this has been
demonstrated over many years.
Preventative medicine saves lives
and in turn reduces costs. Examine
any proposed plan put forth during
the political campaign presidential,
congressional and senate) to be certain
that it contains a wellness component. If
it does not, how can it be considered an
improvement? Ask yourself if it is a step
forward or backward. Imagine a future
where healthcare references disease
prevention instead of disease treatment.

Letters from page 5
Romney for women
In a pathetic effort to try to show President Obama did something worthwhile
in public office for women, (Kathryn)
Hunter and (Kathy Swenson) Miller –
associated with Women for Obama in
Fluvanna County – cobbled together an
exaggerated list of so-called Obama accomplishments. The list appears in their
letter to the Fluvanna Review editor under the overblown title, “Obama’s war for
woman’s rights,” published September 6.
Let’s explore and verify just one of the
accomplishments they claim for Obama
in his alleged war for women rights.
Hunter and Miller assert the fact that
Obama signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay
Act. But his signing the bill distorts the
big picture.
Obama was not the champion of that
legislation; many legislators were over
many years.
Moreover, that legislation has been the
law of the land by Supreme Court action
for a great many years. So the Act – and
Obama signing it – does not constitute
significant or breakthrough policy for
women.
The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act should
be credited to Senator Mikulski – a woman I might add – from Maryland, not
Barack Obama. You would think Hunter
and Miller would be more sensitive to
giving credit to a woman like Mikulski for
her accomplishments in behalf of wom-
en. Instead they assign the equal pay legislation credit to Obama.
Besides, Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act is a
2009 piece of legislation. That was nearly
four years ago.
What serious public policy has Obama
created for women lately? And why is
this coming up now?
Democrats like Hunter and Miller are
desperate to find more Obama votes from
women, because Barrack Obama is declining in voter tracking polls. Yesterday,
Sept. 5, Rasmussen voter tracking poll
has it Romney 48% and Obama 45%.
So, as Obama slips in the polls, Democrats need to change the subject to things
like ginned-up accomplishments for
women. It is anything but the economy
and jobs.
Democrats cannot escape their poor
performance in dealing with the economy and job creation. And women are suffering in this Democrat economy as well.
It is time to change leadership to Romney, who seeks to help both women and
men.
Jerome “Jerry” Patchen
Palmyra
Impact on schools
It is easy to forget the frightening condition of the American economy in 2009
and the controversy surrounding efforts to overcome the collapse of capital
markets. It is also easy to forget how the
American Recovery and Reinvestment
Act (ARRA), the Obama stimulus program, benefited Fluvanna County.
The largest single impact was on our
local public schools. The Fluvanna public school system received a total of
$3.4 million in funding directly from
the ARRA. This money was essential in
keeping experienced teachers and staff
on board and our relatively low studentteacher ratio in place in a period when
tax revenues were declining due to foreclosures and high unemployment.
In March 2009, the ARRA made possible the distribution of school bond savings through refinancing to 31 Virginia
jurisdictions. Fluvanna recouped $9,520
in interest savings on its school bonds.
The county was also able to refinance
$5,420,000 in existing school bonds
through the Virginia Public School Authority as part of the 2009 Obama federal stimulus program taking these bonds
down to a zero percent interest rate. This
action saved Fluvanna another approximately $1 million in interest. The balance on those bonds is now $2,704,077.
In early 2009 Fluvanna County staff
put together an excellent application for
funding the construction of a new Fork
Union replacement fire station. The Federal Emergency Management Agency
subsequently approved the grant request
and provided a total of $1.451 million for
the project. This grant provided approximately 80% of the total planning and
construction costs for the Fork Union
station. Construction is now beginning
so the stimulus package is still at work
in Fluvanna. In addition, this grant from
the federal government made it possible
to design and build a state-of-the-art fire
station at Kents Store.
It can be said with certainty that there
would have been no new Fork Union Fire
Station without this infusion of money
from the ARRA. So the total Fluvanna
County received in funding from the
Obama stimulus package was: $3.4 million for Fluvanna’s schools; $1 million in
saved interest on school bonds; $9,520
in bond savings; and finally $1.451 million for the Fork Union fire station. The
total received by Fluvanna is therefore
$5,860,520. Fluvanna put these funds to
good use. Thank you President Obama
and the members of Congress who supported his stimulus package.

Refinancing county debt could save $120,000 annually
BY RUTHANN CARR
CORRESPONDENT
At a special meeting Wednesday (Sept. 5) representatives
from Raymond James Morgan Keegan presented the Fluvanna Board of Supervisors with a comprehensive look at
current debt and refinancing options.
County Administrator Steve Nichols said the investment
group is helping the board see how refinancing at current
low rates could save enough on interest payments to afford
taking on new debt. New debt would cover fire trucks and
patrol cars.
“We’re looking at how to take advantage of the current
low-rate environment to offset debt of bonds coming due
and the costs of fire trucks and police vehicles,” Nichols
said after the meeting.
The sheriff cars will cost $220,000; the fire truck,
$541,321.
Interest rates are so low, the county could reduce the annual payment on debt an average of $120,000, the financial advisors said.
Financial Advisor Diane Klaiss made the presentation.
Her Raymond James Morgan Keegan colleague, Jim Johnson, was on hand to answer questions.
Board Chairman Shaun Kenney (Columbia) said while
they are certainly talking about a lot of money, in practical
terms, it’s not that different than refinancing a mortgage or
credit card at a lower interest rate.
“It would be taking bonds financed at 6 percent and turning them into 3 percent bonds,” Kenney said
“It’s just the same as taking a credit card with a 20 percent interest rate and rolling the balance onto a card with a
five percent rate.”
The existing debt is not just the $68.3 million for the high
school, but includes bonds issued to build the library and
courthouse. Those total $4.1 million. An annual payment
on that total debt of $72.4 million is $5.875 million.
Even though the Board budgeted $7.4 million for a mandated upgrade to the E911 radio system and has it on hand,
Klaiss said it might make sense to borrow some or that entire amount because interest rates are so low and not likely
to get much lower.
Kenney said that could be the fiscally responsible thing
to do.
“Money has never been cheaper,” Kenney said. “We
could take the $7 million we have set aside and finance all
or some of it at say, two percent. We’d hold on to our cash
and that will give us the latitude to address other needs. It
gives us a lot more leeway.”
Klaiss had one slide that showed bond prices over the
past 20 years. During that time, rates have been higher than
the current 3.72 percent bond buyer 20 rate, 99 percent of
the time.
Kenney asked the investors if there are parameters other
entities look at when making the decision to refinance.
Johnson said most governments, businesses or hospitals
consider saving two to three percent a deal good enough to
refinance.
“Right now, on some of the bonds, you’re looking at a
savings of 5.8 percent,” he said. “I’m not telling you what
to do, but you asked for a guideline.”
The only decision made by the Board Wednesday evening (Sept. 5) was to tell investors to pursue some of the
options.
At the Sept. 19 Board of Supervisor meeting, there will be
a public hearing on what to do about a $2.7 million bond
that is coming due Jan. 1, 2013. There is a chance to finance that debt through the Virginia Public School Authority pool at an estimated rate of 3.09 percent.
Supervisor Mozell Booker (Fork Union) was at the groundbreaking ceremony for the new Fork Union fire house Saturday (Sept. 8) and talked about paying off the debt.
“All I know is I figured out I’ll be 93 when the school is
paid off and I plan to be around to celebrate,” Booker said.
Virginia Power files to covert Bremo Power Station to natural gas
Dominion Virginia Power is proposing to convert Bremo
Power Station in Fluvanna County from using coal to burning natural gas to generate electricity, according to a story
last week in the Richmond Times-Dispatch newspaper.
The Fluvanna Review reported in July of last year that
the change was on the way.
In its application filed with the Virginia State Corporation Commission, Dominion noted that it had agreed to
stop using coal and convert the 227-megawatt, two-unit
power station by spring 2014 as part of the air permit for
the company’s new Virginia City Hybrid Energy Center in
Wise County, the newspaper said.
If the SCC approves the estimated $53.4 million conversion, the company would cease burning coal at Bremo in
fall 2013, the paper said.
Bremo entered service in 1931, and the two units now in
use were put into service in 1950 and 1958, respectively.
This would be the ninth company-owned, coal-fired
power station announced in recent years with units to be
closed or converted to alternative fuels.
During construction, the electric utility said, the conversion is expected to have an economic benefit to the state of
about $7 million and create up to 42 new jobs. The station
will have an annual economic impact of about $24 million
once it is completed, according to the Times-Dispatch.

New buyer hired
for the county
BY RUTHANN
CARR
CORRESPONDENT
Fluvanna County
has a new employee that everyone
hopes will save the
county money.
Joe Rodish startJoe Rodish
ed Sept. 4 as the
purchasing officer.
County Administrator Steve Nichols lobbied for the new position telling the board it
makes sense to centralize that function.
In July, the Board of Supervisors voted to
eliminate the Director of Facilities position.
In the restructuring, Nichols moved facilities under Public Works. Part of the savings,
$43,000, was used to hire Rodish.
The new officer most recently worked as
a purchasing technician for Orange County.
Rodish applied for the Fluvanna job, he said,
because he saw it as an “opportunity to expand professionally.”
Rodish is a student at Liberty University
where he is working on his bachelor’s degree in Business and Accounting.
He lives in Gordonsville but was born and
raised in Greene County.
Finance Director Barbara Horlacher said
among the candidates, Rodish particularly
impressed her because of his work record
and personality.
“We hired him because of his pertinent
experience and because of his attitude and
motivation,” Horlacher said. “He has a getit-done kind of attitude and an outstanding
track record of getting things done.”
One of the things Rodish did in Orange
was to centralize copier leases, something
Horlacher said Fluvanna is interested in doing.
Rodish said he hopes to learn and grow in
his profession but more importantly, wants
to save Fluvanna money.
“I want to make sure the citizens are getting the best possible services and goods at
the best price,” he said. “That will be beneficial to everyone to have transparency and
consistency through the county.”
Horlacher said Rodish will be a resource
for every county department.

The Wilmington Club:
six decades of community life
BY VALERIE DAVIS
CORRESPONDENT
Passersbys traveling along Route 608
south of Wilmington may barely notice
the white cinderblock building that sits in
a pine clearing off the road. Ask any local resident, however, and you are likely
to open a floodgate of memories about
this modest structure that has faithfully
served as the hub of the community for
over 60 years.
Two civic-minded women, Virginia
Kent Loving and “Bootsy” Frye Dillard, led efforts to start a social center
in southeast Fluvanna in the late 1940s.
They persuaded property owner James B.
Bell to donate an acre of his land for the
site of the center.
Their dream became a true community project as funds were raised and
local men donated
their time and skills
to construct the
building. A plaque,
still hanging in
the main meeting hall, lists 97
charter members
of the Wilmington Community
Association in
1951.
“It was built
as a social center for families
in the area,”
explained Mildred Pippin, who serves as the
current president of the organization,
now referred to simply as the Wilmington Club. “Schools and churches were

conditioning, and no one seems to mind.
When an event is scheduled during the
winter months, Childress goes into the
building hours ahead of time to start a
fire in the wood stove on one side of the
room and to light the kerosene stove at
the opposite end. In the summertime,
members host picnics and meetings at
their homes.
Continual upkeep is needed due to the
age of the building. Childress said the
front door entrance was remodeled and
a new floor was installed in the kitchen
about five years ago. Last year a ramp
donated by the Ruritan Club was added
outside the kitchen door for wheelchair
accessibility.

the gathering places in those days, but
back then few churches out in the country had fellowship halls. A community
center served as a place for birthday parties, bridal and baby showers, and square
dances.”
The 79-year-old has a lifetime of memories associated with the center. When
she was a teenager, Pippin attended the
once-a-month Saturday night dances
with her parents and siblings. Her wedding reception was held at the center in
1953.
Joe Childress and his wife Lily also attended the dances as a young couple during that era and continue to be actively
involved in the organization. They celebrated their fiftieth wedding anniversary
at the clubhouse.
“The dances were good, clean fun for
teenagers to participate in. There were
no alcoholic beverages,” said Childress.
“Those teenagers are now us as senior
citizens. We are grandparents now.”
Some things haven’t changed. The
building does not have central heat or air

In August, aging pine trees at the front
of the building were cut down. The organization plans to give the site a makeover
by planting azaleas, dogwoods, and redbuds next spring.
The Wilmington Club has seen its share
of changing seasons too as the membership base gets older. There were more
than 100 members in the early years.
Pippin says that number has dwindled to
about 35 members, and only 20 to 25 are
actively involved in the club.
“Most of our membership is older
people. It used to be that entire families
would come,” said Pippin. “I don’t know
what we can do to bring in the younger
ones.”
Dances, once the mainstay that drew
large crowds, are no longer held at the
center. Meetings are held on the third
Saturday of every month and usually include a potluck dinner and a presentation by a guest speaker or an entertainment program.
The Ruritans, whose
sign is displayed along the
roadside, work in partnership with the Wilmington
Club and use the building
for their monthly meetings.
As a fundraiser, the ladies
of the Wilmington Club
prepare meals at Ruritan
events. Several men, like
Childress, are members of
both organizations.
“I enjoy the fellowship.
The people that come are
so friendly,” he said. “We
don’t talk politics or religion. There’s no controversy. I enjoy taking my grandkids occasionally and they
have a good time too.”
“Plus the ladies in this
area are excellent cooks,”
Childress added. “The food
is always delicious.”
The Wilmington Club
also generates funds by
renting out the facility
for family reunions, showers, and other
special events. Times are tight, however,
and Pippin says they are operating “on a
shoestring.”
She hopes younger people, especially
families with children, will take an interest in joining the club. Although meetings
are not open to the public, members are
encouraged to invite guests.
Pippin says she misses the close-knit
farming community of her childhood.
Society is more mobile now, and there
are so many other activities competing
for people’s time and attention.
“I like to say that I came along during
the best times, when life was slowerpaced and people looked after each other,” she said. “I think we have lost a lot
of that.”
The Wilmington Club is one way to
maintain those relationships and to
strengthen the bonds of community and
friendship. Pippin hopes the club will
continue to have a presence in the area
60 years from now.
“We have tried to keep it just as it was
in the ‘50s. This is still a good, clean, fun
place to come,” she said.

Grace and Glory Lutheran Church
will hold a dedication ceremony a
6 p.m. on Sunday (Sept. 23) for its
new 7,100 square foot worship facility
located on Rt. 53, just west of the intersection with Rt. 15.
The Rev. James F. Mauney, bishop of
the Virginia Synod of the Evangelical
Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and
the Rev. Paul “Chip” Gunsten, assistant to
the bishop, will participate in the special
event, which also will include participation by local and regional government
officials, visiting clergy, parishioners,
friends of the congregation and those in
the community.
The Rev. Kenneth W. Albright, who
has served as pastor of Grace and Glory
for the past six years, will preside over
the special worship service in the new
church, which was completed on the 10
acre site in August of this year.
The new $ 1.4 million worship facility was designed by Hughes Associates
Architects of Roanoke and constructed
by Nielsen Builders Inc. of Harrisonburg.
The building houses a sanctuary able to
seat up to 180 parishioners, and includes
three classrooms, a nursery, a conference
room, a kitchen, and administrative offices.

service on February 11, 2001, at the original Armstrong Fitness Center, at that time
located near Lake Monticello. In all, 53
individuals attended the initial service.
Since then, attendance and membership
has mushroomed, and currently the congregation has more than 160 members.
In recent years, the congregation has
been worshipping at the Fluvanna County Middle School (now the Carysbrook Elementary School) on Rt. 15.
Sunday education classes for adults
and youth are offered at 9:15 a.m., and
the worship service at 10:15 a.m.
The dedication service planned for
Sept. 23 will feature special music selections by the Grace and Glory choir and
the handbell choir. One of the highlights
of the service will be the blessing of various rooms and furnishings in the new
church structure.
Funding for the new building came
from contributions from parishioners,
those in the community and other congregations, a gift from the Virginia Synod
of the ELCA and a loan from the national
ELCA’s Mission Investment Fund.

Fluco sports in review
BY ERIN MORRIS AND CHARLIE CHARLTON,
FLUVANNA COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL JOURNALISM PROGRAM
Erin and Charlie compiled this information with the
oversight of journalism teacher Elizabeth Pellicane
Golf
The 2012-2013 school year has been
full of firsts: a new building, new turf
fields, and new players. The golf team
has also experienced its own first: sophomore Kaitlyn Presley, the first female on
the Fluco golf team. “She’s the first girl
we’ve had ever, as far as I know,” said
Coach Bryan Searcy. “It’s been great.”
In one of the last few weeks of the golf
season, the Flucos went up against Albemarle on Sept. 6. They came in second to
Albemarle with an overall score of 192.
According to Searcy, though the season
“has been fun,” it has not been without
its bumps.
For example, a match scheduled at
Goochland on Sept. 4 was cancelled due
to scheduling confusion on Goochland’s
side and is being rescheduled. Scheduled
matches include Sept. 14 at Buckingham
and Sept. 21 at home against Kettle Run.
Cross country
Feet pounding, arms pumping, and
hair flying. These images are those that
accompany any Fluvanna cross-country
meet. But as these Flucos run their way
to the elusive finish line, what passes
through their brains? “I usually think
about how much farther I have to go,”
said senior cross-country runner Megan
Graham. “Or when I can start walking,”
she added jokingly.
Despite what runs through these determined runners’ minds, they are all set to
make this 2012 season a successful one.
Their mindset is finding success so far.
Both teams won the meet against Madison and East Rockingham on Sept. 5.
The teams then went on to run in the
Fork Union Military Academy Invitational on Sept. 8. While there, the teams
performed admirably, making Fluvanna
proud with a firm fifth place finish. Senior Chris Markham placed first in the
Patriot Race and junior Nicole Douma
placed fifth overall.
“I think we’ve had a great start to the
season,” said senior Robert Powers, “and
we have a good chance to be really competitive as a team.” The teams will be
running once more at Woodberry on
Sept. 15.
Varsity football
Despite being defeated by
Spotsylvania
with a score of
7-10 on Sept. 7,
the Flucos held
their heads high.
Still, many players felt
the loss for Fluvanna was surprising and out of the blue.
“How our team came
out and played was neither
planned nor expected,” said sophomore
Peter Lacey. The team got in a few admirable plays, but the tough game was lost
by only a few crucial points.
The expectations for Fluvanna are really high this year, with a current record
of 1-2. “We want to win over 500 percent
[over half of the games played],” said
Coach Mitchell Pace. So players hope to
use even this loss as an opportunity to
correct hard-learned mistakes and make
a fantastic comeback. “If we play like we
practice, then surely we can beat them,”
said Pace.
Volleyball
The girls of the Fluvanna County volleyball team definitely love the game.
Both varsity and jv had a tournament on
Sept. 4 against Madison, with the varsity
team winning 3-0. Though the jv team
lost 1-2, they are constantly improving.
Though described as “young in key
spots,” by Coach Christy Garrett, “they
are a hard-working and determined
group of girls.” Varsity also played in a
tournament on Sept. 8 against Franklin
County, Albemarle County, and Western,
Stonewall Jackson and Franklin, winning
five total games throughout the tournament.
Both teams will be playing in matches on Sept. 11 at Liberty High School in
Bealton. The expectations for this game
are high.
Junior varsity football
The junior varsity team walked off the
field pleased after tying with the Spotsylvania Knights on Sept. 5. With a score of
19-19 and the motivation of a new school
and new players, the season is going well,
with an overall record of 0-2-1. “If they
are spending millions of dollars on the
field, we should be good,” said sophomore Juan Salazar.
Coach Mike Sheridan has made a practice of debriefing with the team after all
games, discussing what they did right or
could have improved on. The talks can be
uplifting after a loss or have an energy
that keeps the spirits high after a win.
Even though the Flucos have had their
fair share of wins and losses, they hope
to finally make a mark on the map for
themselves this season.

Fluco cross country runners score impressive victories
BY DUNCAN NIXON
CORRESPONDENT
The Flying Fluco boys’ and girls’
cross country teams traveled north
to Madison County High School
on Wednesday (Sept. 5) for a three
way meet with Madison and East
Rockingham High Schools. The Fluco
teams both came away with impressive
victories.
Coach Rose Brogan’s girls’ team
scored a nearly perfect win. If a team
takes the first five places in a cross
country meet, it scores a perfect low
score of 15. The final score of this three
way meet was: Fluvanna County High
School 16, Madison County High 51
and East Rockingham High School 76.
The first place finisher in this meet
for the Flucos was senior Stephanie
Bossong, who completed the 5K (3.1
mile) course in 21:35. Fifty eight
seconds behind Bossong was Fluco
sophomore Devon Burger. Sixteen
seconds behind Burger was Fluco junior
Nikki Douma. Fifteen seconds behind
Douma was fourth place finisher junior
Brooke Haislip. Accordingly, Fluco
runners took the first four places in
this event. The Flucos almost had the
top five spots, as sophomore Peyton
Olinger was beaten out for fifth place
by only five seconds.
Coach Tom Casto’s boys’ team also
scored an easy win in its three way
competition. The final scores were:
Fluvanna County High School 27,
Madison County High School 46,
and East Rockingham High School
47. Leading the boys’ team to this
victory were standout runners Chris
Markham and Travis Moe. Markham,
who is a senior, completed the course
in a very impressive17:57 for first
place, while Moe who is a sophomore
was right on Markham’s heels with
second place time of 18:02. The third
place finisher was more than a minute
behind Moe. Finishing in sixth and
seventh respectively for the Flucos
were freshman Jonathan Corbin and
sophomore Austin Early. Senior Michael
Mattson was eleventh to round out the
top five finishers for the Flucos.
Although it is still early in the season,
the Fluco cross country runners have
been making a strong showing to
date. On Aug. 28, both teams traveled
to the Panorama Course in Albemarle
County to take part in the 2012 Ragged
Mountain Cup event. This event is
a kick-off to the Fall season, and it
consists of a four person team, two mile
relay competition. In the girls’ event, 22
teams competed and the Fluco A team
finished a very impressive second. The
girls’ A team consisted of Nikki Douma,
Devon Burger, Stephanie Bossong and
Brooke Haislip. Douma had the third
best two mile time for all 88 runners,
while Burger was right behind with
the fourth best time. They ran 12:53
and 12:55 respectively. Bossong had
the eighth best time, and Haislip had
the 24th best time, so all four A team
runners were in the top 25.
On the boys’ side the Fluco A team
was seventh out of 33 teams. and the
B team was14th. Coach Casto split his
two top runners, with Chris Markham
running on the A team and Travis Moe
running on the B team. Markham had
the fifth best time over two miles and
Moe had the 12th best time. They ran
10:50 and 11:10 respectively.
Coaches Casto and Brogan both
advise that they are pleased with the
way their teams are progressing. Both
teams have a mix of experienced and
younger runners, so the future appears
to be bright for Fluco running. Casto
advises that he currently has a squad of
15 runners in the 8-12 grades. Brogan
reports that she has 36 runners, an
amazing level of participation, from
these same grades.
The Fluco cross country squads
run at home only once this season.
They will host Jefferson District rival
Monticello High School at Pleasant
Grove on Oct. 3 at 5 p.m. They have a
big Jefferson District meet at Powhatan
High School on Oct. 24, with a 3:30
p.m. start time.

Ground broken for new Fork Union firestation
BY RUTHANN CARR
CORRESPONDENT
Firefighters and their supporters were out in full force
Saturday morning (Sept. 8) turning soil on the future.
There was enough sweat and good will to go around
as politicians, firefighters and community members dug
into the clay soil with gilded shovels, breaking ground
for the new Fork Union Firestation just north of the community center.
The past was there, too, looking to the future.
Hill Shiner is president of the Fork Union Fire Department.
He was a firefighter for years and has been looking toward this day for a long time, he said.
“It’s going to be great,” Shiner said. “We’ve needed this
for a while. The old fire house sits in a flood plan and
when we get a good rain, there is six to eight inches of
water in it – and it’s supposed to be a place where people
can go in emergencies.”
Shiner’s grandson, Tre Gatewood is a Fork Union fire
fighter now and was showing his little brother, Caleb
Crawford, 3, around the fire truck.
Little Caleb even took his turn helping his brother lift
the shovel and dig up a clod of dirt. Caleb wore a shirt
that read: “My brother saves lives.”
Before breaking ground, Supervisor Mozell Booker
(Fork Union) addressed the crowd gathered in the hot
morning sun.
Booker thanked everyone who helped get the project
going and insisted Pat Groot, the county’s grants administrator come up and stand next to her.
“She really shepherded this along,” Booker said.
Board Chairman Shaun Kenney (Columbia) agreed.
L. John Melton, Frankie Hackett, Nicole Kober, Andre Lewis, Tre Brown and Sean Thomas
took part in the ground breaking held Sept. 8. Photos by Ruthann Carr.
of the building cost comes to about $385,000, she said.
Haley Builders of Ashland will be constructing the fire
house which is similar in design to the Palmyra and Kent
Store fire stations.
The station will have sleeping quarters, a kitchen,
training room and six bays large enough to accommodate not only current but future apparatus.
“With every project we have in the county she (Groot)
is a big part of it and she never wants part of the credit,”
he said.
The new fire house is being built using a $1.4 million
dollar grant awarded from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security under the American Recovery Reinvestment Act. Booker thanked the taxpayers whose portion
