The Henrico County Public Library system will host three "death cafés" – gatherings during which attendees can discuss death and dying in what the library terms "surprisingly upbeat and informative guided discussions" led by spiritual and bereavement counselor Alane Miles.
The events will provide attendees the opportunity to ask any and all questions about the topics of death, dying, grief and funeral practices, in an informal setting. Miles has 20 years of experience in the hospice field, hosts the Death Club Radio show on WRIR and writes for Style Weekly. Registration is not required. > Read more.

UPDATED: NOV. 6, 12:02 P.M. – In a reversal of a similar vote eight years ago, Henrico voters Nov. 5 narrowly approved the implementation of a 4-percent meals tax, which county officials intend to use as a dedicated revenue source for the school system.
The vote – 51.8 percent in favor, 48.1 percent opposed – was as close as most observers expected it to be, decided by a difference of just 2,891 votes among the 100,003 ballots cast.
"This vote is a vote for the standards that we have established for our local school system," County Manager John Vithoulkas told the Citizen. "It speaks to the credibility that the county has established over many, many years. There's a lot of cynicism that is out there in the community with other levels of government."
The vote broke down along geographic lines, with the county's three westernmost magisterial districts (Three Chopt, Tuckahoe and Brookland) voting against the tax by slim margins – and the two easternmost districts (Fairfield and Varina) voting in favor of it. The vote seemed to turn in the Fairfield District, where 61 percent of voters supported it by a margin of nearly 4,000 votes. > Read more.
