SEPT. 25, 12:50 P.M. – Less than a month after he was appointed by the Henrico School Board to serve the final four months of former Fairfield District member Lamont Bagby's term, Pierre Greene announced that he will seek the seat on a permanent basis through a write-in campaign during the Nov. 3 election.

Greene's decision was met with disapproval by some School Board members, since they specifically had sought to choose a representative who would not seek the seat permanently.

Members did not want to give the advantage of incumbency to any candidate. None of the three candidates on the November ballot – Tara Adams, Roscoe Cooper, III or Marcus Martin – applied for the temporary position.

Stitching an American story

99-Year-Old Henrico woman spreads patriotism through crocheting

This Is One Really Incredible 99 Year Old.

Those words appear on a pillow in the center of Ersell Brinser’s bed. At the foot of the bed, you’ll find a pile of four folded blankets, all designed as American flags and crocheted by Brinser. Crocheting is how she spends her time when she isn’t watching Dr. Phil or Oprah.
