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.

Henrico soldier reunites with cousin in Jordan

It seemed like a routine overseas deployment to medical Specialist Musab Alsawalha of Henrico, when he was given his orders to deploy to Kuwait to support the 3rd Medical Command at Arifjan, Kuwait.

As he was packing his bags though, more than 6,000 miles away, Jordanian Lt. Col. Mohammed Sawalha of the Jordan Armed Forces Staff Joint Operations command also was packing his bags in preparation for Eager Lion 13 in Jordan – a multi-national exercise with more than 8,000 military participants from 19 countries.

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.
