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.

Deep Run High School’s robotics team was part of a four-team alliance that won competitive robotics’ biggest prize Saturday, the 2016 FIRST Robotics Competition Championship. The St. Louis event featured 600 of the best teams in the world, representing 24 countries.
The Deep Run squad, “Team 1086, Blue Cheese” teamed with three other robotics teams, from high schools in California, Illinois and Ohio to earn the victory. It was the first time a Virginia team had won the FIRST championship.
The win was particularly satisfying, according to Deep Run physics teacher and team coach Matt Wilson, because this was the last year that a single world champion will be crowned. Beginning next year, the competition will award two titles at different sites. > Read more.

HCA Virginia Hospitals have been recognized in the spring 2016 Hospital Safety Score, which rates how well hospitals protect patients from errors, injuries and infections. New Hospital Safety Scores, which assign A, B, C, D and F letter grades to hospitals nationwide and provide the most complete picture of patient safety in the U.S. health care system, recently were announced by The Leapfrog Group, a national patient safety watchdog. Henrico Doctors’, John Randolph Medical Center, and Retreat Doctors’ all received an A ranking, and were among 798 hospitals in the country to earn this honor. For the first time, the Hospital Safety Score includes five measures of patient-reported experience with the hospital as well as two of the most common infections, C.diff and MRSA. Developed under the guidance of Leapfrog’s Blue Ribbon Expert Panel, the Hospital Safety Score uses 30 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign A, B, C, D and F grades to more than 2,500 U.S. hospitals twice per year. It is calculated by top patient safety experts, peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public. > Read more.

By Tom Lappas, Citizen Editor 05/03/2016 Henrico Schools
Charging that they’ve been lied to repeatedly by public officials, organizers of a community meeting in Eastern Henrico May 2 criticized the Henrico County Public Schools system and demanded changes to the way county schools teach students to read.
At the Nehemiah Action Assembly at St. Paul’s Baptist Church, speakers from RISC (Richmonders Involved to Strengthen our Community) called for immediate action by HCPS to address the struggles of thousands of children in Eastern Henrico schools who they said are not learning how to read. Before an audience of about 500 people, speakers argued that the school system’s current attempts to address the issue are failing miserably. > Read more.
