United they run

Hermitage HS wins national relay title

It may have seemed as if there were the usual number of runners on the Hermitage H.S. sprint medley relay team that won the national championship in June.

But behind the foursome of Jaylen Banks, Dallas Carter, Edwin Mejia and Devin Barnes, there were a number of unseen hands and supporters helping to clear their path to the championship and propel them over the finish line in first place.

In a run that their coach called "amazing," the boys led the field from the very beginning of the race and claimed the title with a margin of 1.6 seconds. According to Milestat.com, which compiles high school meet results, the boys "attacked" the event, and only one team ever had a chance of catching them. > Read more.

Earth Day Challenge helps homeowners conserve energy

The Richmond Region Energy Alliance (RREA) and the state’s Virginia Energy Sense program recently launched the Earth Day Challenge with 16 other organizations to help Richmond-area residents make their homes more energy efficient.

To enter the challenge, which runs through Earth Day on April 22, homeowners will conduct a free online energy assessment that will instantly recommend ways they can save energy at home. Participants in the Earth Day Energy Challenge will be entered into a drawing to win one of five free in-home professional energy assessments donated by RREA’s pre-qualified contractors.

Professional home energy assessments, which can cost between $300 and $400, will help identify potential energy wasters in a home — especially those in tough to spot or difficult to access areas like crawl spaces and heating and cooling ducts. The home energy assessment allows the homeowner to prioritize the most cost-effective energy improvements to lower energy bills and live in a more comfortable home. > Read more.

Art ‘ReFined’ in Lakeside

Local artist Kris Taylor (above) was among the visitors at a March 31 open house held at the relocated women's consignment shop ReFinery, formerly of the Bellevue area and now in Lakeside. Among the artist's oil paintings and framed etchings now on display at the shop is this favorite, "Second Sighting of the Sacred White Cow," which was inspired by a field full of cows that Taylor spotted while driving through the Colorado countryside near Ute Mountain. Taylor's work will be on display through May at ReFinery, located at 5402 Lakeside Avenue. > Read more.

Whale of a treat

Ironfish delights with a variety of tasty catches

I was overjoyed to head back for another meal at Ironfish by Pescados, considered the Best New Restaurant in 2011 by both the Richmond Times Dispatch and Richmond Magazine. I agree whole-heartedly with their ratings. Since I first visited the restaurant for my birthday in January, I was waiting for the perfect special occasion to return. I couldn’t wait another year, obviously.

Run by the same restaurateurs as Pescados Latin Caribbean Seafood in Midlothian and Eat in Oregon Hill, Ironfish offers the same unique dishes and top-level customer service. > Read more.
