Henrico Democrats nominate Lynch, Rodman

Candidates will seek seats on Board of Supervisors, in Virginia House
APR. 29, 6:15 P.M. – Henrico Democrats today selected their party's nominees for the Brookland District Supervisor seat and the 73rd District House of Delegates seat during a party caucus.

Courtney Lynch, the founder of a leadership development company, was somewhat of a surprise winner in the Brookland District supervisor's race. She defeated Virginians for High Speed Rail Executive Director Danny Plaugher, who had been the party's nominee two years ago in the general election for the seat.

Debra Rodman, a Randolph-Macon College professor, earned the party's nomination for the 73rd House District seat, defeating Chelsea Savage, a nurse, in a runoff. Attorney Sarah Smith was third and Bill Coleman, a project manager for a health organization, fourth.

Support group offers teens help, hope through art

In a room labeled the garden room, a bright space with lavender-colored walls and pebble-gray chairs, art therapist Becky Jacobson might ask her patients to imagine a safe place, but she doesn’t ask them to describe it to her — she wants them to draw it.

The patients are free to draw whatever they envision, expressing themselves through their colored markers, a form of healing through art therapy.

“Some people might not feel safe anywhere because they have had hard things happening to them, and I have the background to help that person reground and feel safe in the group,” Jacobson said.

State Police to increase patrols during the holidays


Virginia State Police will participate in the national Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over enforcement effort during the holidays by increasing patrols and participating in DUI checkpoints with local police and sheriff's offices throughout the state.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 28 people in the U.S. die every day in alcohol-related vehicle crashes. That translates to one person every 53 minutes. Drunk driving fatalities have fallen by a third in the past three decades; however, the chance of being involved in an alcohol-impaired crash is still one in three during the course of a lifetime. Alcohol-related crash deaths and damages contribute to a cost of $52 billion per year.
