Band of brothers

'Warriors' group aims for guidance, not goals
Rocky Marrin spent 30 years of his life on a spending spree. Now he's on a mission not only to return the goods, but to help others avoid his buyer's remorse.

"I was buying what the world was selling," Marrin said of the three-decade period when his world revolved around climbing the corporate ladder, owning a nice home and cars, and seeking enjoyment in "drinking buddies, golf, sports, and women."

Yes, he went to church once a week, Marrin said; but all he had to show at the end of those 30 years was "a broken marriage, hurt and angry children, and a ton of confusion in every other area of my life."

Hermitage senior serves as governor of VGMA

Hermitage High School senior Adam Skyes was one of 500 Virginia teens who recently participated in the YMCA Virginia Model General Assembly (VGMA), a program designed to introduce high school students to the legislative process of Virginia. Sykes served as “governor” this year – his third year in the VGMA program.

“I wanted to have a more active role in the process so I decided to run for governor,” he said. “I wanted to have a say in how we would move forward. My mom always said that I needed to be involved in extracurricular activities, so she was ecstatic when I was elected governor.”

As governor for the 2011-2012 year, he helped his team deal with such controversial issues as same-sex marriage, immigration, legalizing marijuana and gun control. At this year’s sessions, hundreds of bills were introduced and debated by participants who took on the roles of senators, delegates, Cabinet officers, lobbyists and news reporters. Legislation was debated in committees and on the floors of the Senate and House of Delegates.
