FeedMore honors Henrico volunteers


FeedMore recognized several volunteers from Henrico County recently in honor of National Volunteer Appreciation Week. The volunteers - William Cary, Phil Newton and Yvette Gilmore – have given eight total years of service to the agency, which works to fight hunger in Central Virginia.

“It’s heartbreaking to realize there are kids in our community who are hungry,” said Cary (pictured, at right), a volunteer with FeedMore’s Children’s Programs. “Nobody, young or old, should be hungry.” > Read more.

Privacy concerns table search, seizure bill

A bill that would give Virginia police power to search private computers without a secondary search warrant was tabled after a committee determined the bill’s language failed to protect Fourth Amendment rights.

According to Delegate Mike Webert, R-Marshall, who is chief patron of the bill, the purpose of the bill “is not more money and power.”

Webert said his bill was meant to "streamline the process" of searching through a citizen's computer, by eliminating the need for two warrants. > Read more.

A fun, fuzzy ride

‘Muppets Most Wanted’ worthy of its franchise

Do Muppets sleep? It’s hard to say.

They don’t really eat (or breathe, as far as anyone can tell). And only occasionally do they have visible, functioning legs.

As far as anyone knows, sleeping might be off the table. And that makes it very hard to accuse the Muppets of sleepwalking through their latest feature, Muppets Most Wanted – even if that’s exactly what’s going on.

Jim Henson’s beloved creations were back in a big way after 2011’s The Muppets, with fame and fortune and even an Oscar, a first for the group (“Rainbow Connection” was nominated, yet somehow failed to collect at the ’79 ceremony). > Read more.
