Affable florist Henry Sykes fondly remembered
Sykes had a comfort zone and he liked it there.
He grew up a stone's throw away from the shop on Rockingham Street, and later moved into a home on the other side of the business. After his time in the service, he left New England only one other time, to visit an old friend's grave at Arlington National Cemetery. Laurel convinced him to make the trip by noting that it was a chance to bring some flowers for his friend's grave.
Sykes was a selfless man who earned accolades for his volunteer work and board service for several city groups, including the Kiwanis Club, Salvation Army and Masonic Lodge. His extended family included a broad range of people over the decades who he met either through the shop, church or athletics leagues.
Bob Anderson, a 72-year-old Tewksbury resident, met Sykes playing softball and bowling and despite an age difference, they easily took to each other. "Henry was like a father to me," he said. "You couldn't ask for a nicer person."
"He had a good sense of humor," Anderson added, "but he had a great heart."

Raiders rout Rams on the road
PEMBROKE — In the previous meeting between Richmond Senior and Purnell Swett, both teams combined for 221 points in the Raiders’ win in Rockingham.
Tuesday night’s game at Purnell Swett was high-scoring for the Raiders, but a sluggish start led to the Rams’ demise.
The Raiders claimed an 107-50 win over the Rams to keep themselves in contention in the Southeastern Conference title race.
“We just really emphasized things in practice we could improve on,” Richmond coach David Laton said. “I think our press is a lot better.”
The win keeps Richmond two games behind Scotland for first place with four games left, including the regular-season finale at home against the Scots.
“It’s keeping us in the hunt,” Laton said. “As the season goes on, there’s going to be more and more people knocking each other off, so this win is important.”
Richmond (12-8, 4-3 SEC) was led by Lavell Ellerbe with 18, Malik Flowers with 15 and Jaylon Terry with 14.
After going neck-and-neck with Richmond for the first two minutes and leading 8-6 after a Luke Brooks 3-pointer, Purnell Swett (3-13, 0-7 SEC) went cold while the Raiders kept running. Richmond scored 26 unanswered points to go up 32-8 with less than a minute to go in the quarter.
In the previous two games this season, Purnell Swett was able to keep the game c...Feb 2, 2016

What Kind of Welcome Do Refugees Get in Virginia?
But refugees are meeting some resistance from other officials. Republican Congressman Bob Goodlatte, who represents the 6th District, including Rockingham, Augusta and Rockbridge Counties, has criticized the Obama Administration’s decision to resettle thousands of Syrian refugees in the United States.
Goodlatte didn’t speak to WMRA on tape, but issued an email statement, which read in part [quote]: “Unfortunately, the United States’ generous immigration and refugee policies are being abused in ways that pose threats to the safety of our citizens.” He goes on to say, “We welcome those refugees who are fully qualified and vetted to enter the United States.”
The Harrisonburg Refugee Office resettles between 175 to 200 refugees every year. Most clients are from Iraq, followed by Eritrea –near the horn of Africa – Colombia, Afghanistan and Cuba.
[SOUNDS OF REFUGEE MOMS CHATTING AT HARRISONBURG CHILDREN’S MUSEUM]
On another afternoon, CWS organized an event for refugee moms at the children’s museum. It was a chance for ladies who might otherwise be home alone with children to get out and share stories with their peers. Most of the women wore hijabs and didn’t want to talk to a reporter, but at least one looked all American: purple Nikes, a sparkly cap with flowers on it. Her name is Manwar. She’s been in the States with her husband and child for three years. Like most of the women, she doesn’t have her driver’s license but is practicing.
MANWAR: I like to drive. Go to the school. To the appointment. To shopping.
Upon a refugee’s arrival in Harrisonburg, Church World Service provides each individual with roughly $1,000. CWS sets them up with a furnished apartment stocked with some food, and helps them apply for various services from food stamps to Medicaid. CWS teaches newcomers how to interview, helps them enroll in English and driving classes, and their children in school.
The program is designed to make refugees feel welcome, and to give them a leg up, but it’s still rooted in the American “sink or swim” model. Once the thousand dollars runs out, it’s gone. Refugees also have to pay back the cost of each family member’s airfare.
JIM HERSHBERGER: It’s a pretty intense first month or so, it sure is.
Jim Hershberger is the director of the immigration and refugee program for Church World Service in Harrisonburg.
HERSHBERGER: It takes 3-4 years to get here. In those 3-4 years, most people have had sporadic work—few hours here, few hours there. They’ve not had a steady job for a long time. So the idea of coming here and having steady employment, pay their bills, have some cash, feel comfortable, actually have a safe place to live, with clothes and food is an enormous relief. [12:13]
He said he’s often asked about when Syrian refugees will eventually come through his office. The answer is, it’ll be awhile because the American screening process takes so long. Asylum seekers go through a battery of assessments involving biodata, biometrics and security checks by the National Counterterrorism Center, the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security and the State Department. Riyadh from Iraq said it took two years for him and his family to pass all the security measures.
Despite reservations, plenty of communities roll out the welcome mat. Lexington’s City Council released a pro-refugee statement in November declaring it [quote] “our patriotic duty as Americans to welcome refugees.”
As for Manwar, she seems grateful for U.S. hospitality.
MANWAR: I love you. [LAUGHS]

Memorial Scheduled for Teen Killed by Train In Elkton
Family will receive friends following the service.
On the Kyger Funeral Home memorial page for Hammer, it says, "Jerrick was a 2015 graduate of East Rockingham High School. He had an infectious laugh and the most beautiful smile that would light up a room. He made days brighter wherever he went, always sharing a hug along the way. He was an adventurous free spirit with such a youthful innocence. His greatest love was music."
The page also says In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to Impact Ministries in care of Brad Lewis, 21063 Blue and Gold Drive, Elkton Virginia, 22827.
A community is remembering the life of a Jerrick Hammer who died Saturday night after being hit by a train in Elkton.
Victoria Samuels said Hammer was her best friend and that they've known each other since kindergarten. According to Samuels, Jerrick never gave up on anything and that he was "inspiring," believing that if you set a foundation for your life based on fixing yourself, before you fix others, you will have a happy life.
Samuels said they became extremely close over the past few summers and hearing the news of his death was difficult.
"I dropped to the floor," said Samuels of when she heard of his death. "I didn't want to believe it and then when I saw it on the news that it was confirmed that it was him, my heart broke."
WHSV also received messages from Hammer's friends via Facebook and email.
"There was never a dull moment when he was around," wrote K... (WHSV)
