Henrico man wins $1M in Va. Lottery


Sometimes being wrong isn’t such a bad thing. When Charles Bibbs discovered he’d matched the first five numbers in the April 21 Mega
Millions drawing, he figured he’d won $250,000, and he was excited about it.

“I had to look at the ticket 20 or 30 times,” he said. “I couldn’t believe it.”

It turns out the Henrico man was wrong. He hadn’t won $250,000. His ticket was actually worth $1 million. > Read more.

Countdown’s on for the next state song


The curtain is closing on the General Assembly’s chance to select a new state song for Virginia this legislative session.

At the start of the session, three tunes were proposed as Virginia’s official song. But the bills that would designate a new state song are languishing in committees, and if they’re not acted on by Tuesday, they’re dead for this session.

The General Assembly has been holding auditions for a new state song since “Carry Me Back to Old Virginny” was retired in 1997 for its racist lyrics. > Read more.

Assembly bypasses Richmond airport parking dispute


A legislative subcommittee has shelved a bill that would have limited how much Richmond International Airport could charge ground transportation providers such as Park ’N Go.

House Bill 1889, introduced by Delegate Chris Jones, R-Suffolk, stated that “Any charges on ground transportation providers imposed by the governing body of Richmond International Airport: 1. Shall be assessed in the same manner as charges imposed on other providers of ground transportation; and 2. Shall not be based on the gross receipts of the ground transportation provider.”

One of the bill’s chief proponents had been Park ’N Go, a business that offers parking and shuttle service to and from the Richmond airport. Park ’N Go has a long-standing dispute with the airport. > Read more.
