Embezzler Will Serve Four Years, Eight Months

The News Gazette - dwoodson@thenews-gazette.com (Ed Smith) - Fri, 31 Oct 2014 20:13:48 +0000

For embezzling $412,000 from her employer over a period of more than eight years, Johnna Groah Smith, 52, of Buena Vista, will serve four years, eight months in the state penitentiary.

“The crime was overwhelming, a disaster for everyone,” said Judge David A. Molesco in Buena Vista Circuit Court Friday morning before pronouncing sentence. The judge sentenced Smith to five years on each of nine counts of embezzlement that Smith pleaded guilty to earlier. He suspended all of the time except for four years, eight months, and ordered Smith to report to jail on Monday.

Smith worked for Ramsey Enterprises and its related businesses for more than 30 years. The crimes were said to have occurred between 2005 and 2013. Evidence gathered by the Virginia state police showed that Smith, in her capacity as bookkeeper for different Ramsey businesses, wrote checks from her employer's accounts that were applied to her own credit card bills. She also wrote checks for her own use, making incorrect entries on the businesses' checkbook stubs.

In offering a summary of the evidence against Smith, Commonwealth's Attorney Chris Russell said Smith used her ill-gotten gains to finance, among other things, family vacations to Mexico, Pigeon Forge, Disney World and (five or six times) to Myrtle Beach.

“I'm ashamed of it. I don't know why I did it. I was just going to borrow it,” said Smith when she took the stand.

Wilford “Skip” Ramsey Jr., her former boss, said he and his wife had to cancel various trips and activities as they came to grips with the magnitude of the losses his businesses sustained as a result of the thefts. The experience, he said, has caused him to have trouble sleeping, aggravated health problems and “dampened my personality.”

For more details on Smith's sentencing, see Wednesday's print edition of the News-Gazette.

No trick-or-treaters? Buy Halloween candy anyway

ABC 7 WJLA Entertainment - The Associated Press - Fri, 31 Oct 2014 11:57:37 EST

NEW YORK (AP) - Don Stewart and his wife will be home with the lights on Halloween night, waiting for trick-or-treaters. But like a lot of folks who stock up on candy, they'll probably end up eating it themselves.

":My wife and I buy candy every year, knowing that trick-or-treaters won't come to see us,": said Stewart, an artist in Homewood, Alabama. That's why they buy the treats they like, not necessarily what they think kids will like: ":Nothing is wasted. If we plan well, there's usually enough to last us 'til Christmas.":

This little game of self-deception plays out each year in buildings where apartment-dwellers wait in vain for door knocks and on suburban side streets and country roads where kids don't wander. ":We were bummed out the first few times,": said Stewart, ":until we realized, 'Hey this is a bonus. We can buy all the candy we want and eat it and it's not our fault.'":

When Paula Werne moved to a rural stretch in Ferdinand, Indiana, 32 years ago with her farmer husband Gary, ":I was skeptical we'd have any trick-or-treaters.": But her husband insisted the location wouldn't deter locals.

":I purchased multiple bags of goodies and positioned a welcoming jack-o'-lantern in the front window,": she recalled. And who came? ":Not a soul. Not a single solitary soul ... I even checked to make sure the doorbell worked. Twice.": Her husband ate the candy, and each year since, he has convinced her that ":this might be the year.":

Some folks think fewer kids go door to door these days, with more organized parties and programs instead. ":Kids do their trick-or-treating at school now because of safety reasons or fear of drunk drivers,": said Jason Varden, who works for an online videogame company Gazillion and lives with his wife in Milpitas, California. ":It goes into the helicopter mom thing of 'We're not going to let our kids go up to strangers.'":

The trend hasn't stopped him from buying the 200-plus-size bags of goodies from Target. ":It's all for the children!": he insisted. ":But we bought Kit Kats and Snickers - candy we knew we would eat if we had to.":

Bryanna Johns, 20, a student at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, isn't that far removed from her childhood trick-or-treating, but she thinks the practice ":is losing its appeal. People are so worried about can you trust who your child is getting candy from. They're going trick-or-treating more in children's museums, churches and malls instead.":

She goes home Halloween night to help her mom answer the door, but they typically only get about 20 kids. So mom buys candy the family likes - Snickers and Reese's Pieces, rather than fruity or fizzy sweets - and they watch a horror movie at evening's end while finishing the leftovers.

Monique Lewis also has fond memories of trick-or-treating as a kid in Arlington, Virginia. But as an adult living in three different apartments, she's never had a trick-or-treater.

":First year in, I was so excited because I was certain that I would be flooded. By the time 10 p.m. had rolled around, I was standing in the hallway with my door open, frantically searching for the missing treaters,": said Lewis, a marketing consultant now living in Manhattan. Each time she moved, she kept buying candy, thinking ":every building is different.": She even decorated her door to make it inviting.

But usually, the day after Halloween, she's ":eating all the candy and throwing impromptu get-togethers": to get rid of it.

Governor To Help Mark VMI Anniversary

The News Gazette - dwoodson@thenews-gazette.com (submitted) - Fri, 31 Oct 2014 18:54:53 +0000

On Tuesday, Nov. 11, Virginia Military Institute will mark the 175th anniversary of its founding with the placement of a time capsule, a special stamp cancellation, a speech by Gov. Terry McAuliffe, and a parade by the VMI corps of cadets. All of the events are open to the public.

The time capsule will be placed at 11 a.m. in the visitor center in Lejeune Hall. The capsule’s contents will include memorabilia from entities across post, representing VMI today. It is to be kept on display until it is opened after 50 years, in the year 2064.

McAuliffe will speak at the Founders’ Day convocation ceremony, to be held at 1:30 p.m. in Cameron Hall. The governor’s speech will be followed by the parade, beginning at 3:30 p.m.

Immediately following the parade, Randolph P. Shaffner, author of a new biography, The Father of Virginia Military Institute: A Biography of Colonel J.T.L. Preston CSA, will give a short talk in Jackson Memorial Hall. He will sign copies of the book before the parade, from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m., in the VMI Museum lobby and then again following his talk in Jackson Memorial Hall. Shaffner is a retired professor of English and comparative literature and archivist for the Highlands Historical Society in western North Carolina.

In addition, in honor of VMI’s 175th anniversary, the U.S. Postal Service has authorized a pictorial cancellation featuring the statue of Confederate Gen. Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson that stands in front of the barracks on post. The cancellation, which costs 49 cents, will be available for 60 days beginning Nov. 11.

Although the post office is normally closed on Nov. 11 for Veterans Day, postal service employees will staff a stamp cancellation booth in Jackson Memorial Hall that day from 9 a.m. until noon. The cancellation will also be available at the Lexington post office beginning Nov. 12.

Celebrated at VMI on Nov. 11 each year, Founders Day marks the anniversary of the Institute’s founding on Nov. 11, 1839. On that day, approximately 25 cadets enrolled to begin a three-year course of study at what had been a state arsenal. Guided by Lexington attorney J.T.L. Preston, first superintendent Gen. Francis H. Smith, and French engineer Claudius Crozet, the first president of the VMI Board of Visitors, the Institute grew and flourished. In 1845, a four-year curriculum was adopted. By the time the Civil War began, in 1861,VMI claimed almost 2,000 alumni.

During the Civil War, in June 1864, almost the entire post was burned by Union troops under the command of Gen. David Hunter, and the Corps of Cadets was forced to relocate to Richmond. Classes did not begin again in Lexington until October 1865.

Today, VMI has an enrollment of more than 1,600 cadets and offers majors in 14 academic disciplines.

Among the Institute’s distinguished graduates are General of the Army George C. Marshall, VMI class of 1901, who was the architect of the Marshall Plan for economic recovery in post-World War II Europe, and Jonathan Daniels ’61, who died saving the life of a young black woman during the civil rights movement in Alabama in the 1960s.

In addition, VMI has produced 11 Rhodes Scholars and numerous flag rank officers in all branches of the service.

Local Va. business, UnTattooU, to offer free radiation tattoo removal for breast cancer survivors

ABC 7 WJLA Health - Jummy Olabanji - Fri, 31 Oct 2014 06:19:54 EST

VIENNA, Va. (WJLA) &ndash: A local Virginia business is stepping up to help breast cancer survivors in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

UnTattooU in Vienna is offering free radiation tattoo removal for breast cancer survivors.

&ldquo:We look at this as something that we can add to their care,&rdquo: said Dr. Scott Berger, chief medical officer at UnTattooU.

Doctors often tattoo cancer patients with black dots in order to pinpoint where to do the radiation treatments, but the dots can be a painful reminder for many survivors such as Rebecca McCabe.

&ldquo:Every time I saw them, it was a reminder of a very difficult time in my life,&rdquo: said McCabe, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011. She underwent both surgery and six weeks of radiation.

&ldquo:Having [the dots] removed is really important to me, just to get that part of my life behind me,&rdquo: said McCabe.

Anyone interested in signing up for the promotion should have the procedure approved by their oncologist before scheduling an appointment.

Group of Native Americans ask a judge to toss lawsuit filed against them by the Washington Redskins

ABC 7 WJLA Politics - The Associated Press - Fri, 31 Oct 2014 04:40:42 EST

WASHINGTON (AP) - Five Native Americans are asking a Virginia judge to dismiss a lawsuit the Washington Redskins filed after the group successfully challenged the team's name, arguing it is offensive.

Lawyers for both sides are expected in federal court in Alexandria on Friday, where a judge is scheduled to hear arguments on whether the lawsuit should be thrown out.

The five won a victory earlier this year when a U.S. Patent and Trademark Office board ruled that six trademark registrations on the team's name should be canceled because they were ":disparaging to Native Americans": when registered.

After the board's action, the team in August sued the five Native Americans, asking a federal court to stop the cancellation from happening.

Va. teen with spinal injury defies odds, earns award for learning to walk again

Virginia WJLA - Jay Korff - Fri, 31 Oct 2014 00:54:06 EST

WASHINGTON (WJLA) &ndash: When Nick Balenger suffered a serious spinal injury, doctors told the teen he would never walk again. On Thursday night, the hospital that watched as he defied his doctors&rsquo: expectations presented him with an award.

Nineteen-year-old Balenger&rsquo:s walk to the stage at the Mariott Marquis before thunderous applause is remarkable, considering some thought he would never walk.

&ldquo:At no point was I ever told that I would walk again,&rdquo: he said.

In the summer of 2012, after helping Lake Braddock Secondary School win the Virginia state baseball title, Balenger dove into the ocean while on vacation in Hawaii. He hit a sandbar, severely injured his spinal cord, and had no movement from the chest down for 18 days.

&ldquo:Not a lot of people with my injury are given the opportunity to &hellip: walk again,&rdquo: he said. &ldquo:I sure as hell wasn&rsquo:t going to let that go to waste.&rdquo:

Balenger&rsquo:s sports-instilled drive took over. After a year and a half of arduous rehab at MedStar National Rehabilitation Hospital in D.C., he saw awe-inspiring improvement.

&ldquo:Never give up,&rdquo: Balenger said. &ldquo:Take one more step, try one more time.&rdquo:

Now, Balenger walks with the use of crutches, drives, and lives independently as a sophomore at George Mason University. His mother, Sylvie, says his mental strength is what makes her proud.

&ldquo:He saw it as an opportunity to start his life all over again,&rdquo: she said.

That&rsquo:s why Balenger received the hospital&rsquo:s Gala Victory Award, for walking into a new and uncertain life without reservation and, in the process, inspiring us all.

&ldquo:One of my goals is to come up here, walk across the stage, give a killer speech, receive my award and walk out like a bada**,&rdquo: Nick Balenger said. &ldquo:I&rsquo:m looking forward to accomplishing that goal and checking it off the list.&rdquo:

Balenger says when he graduates from college, he wants to be able to walk up to the stage and receive his diploma without the help of crutches.
