Lamont Bagby
DEC. 23, 11 A.M. – Henrico County School Board member Lamont Bagby fell several votes short in his attempt to win the Democratic nomination to seek the 74th District House of Delegates seat in a Jan. 13 special election.

Bagby lost by eight votes – 24 to 16 – in a firehouse primary to Charles City resident Kevin Sullivan, a former International Brotherhood of Teamsters political coordinator. Former 74th District representative Floyd Miles finished third.

Only about 100 Democrats in the district (which spans portions of Henrico and Richmond and all of Charles City County) were eligible to vote – those who are active members of the Democratic committees in one of the three localities – and only a few more than 40 turned out. > Read more.

‘A glimmer of hope’

Local recession recovery not as bright as some numbers might indicate, but conditions still improving
Just looking at the numbers, it would be easy to assume that the Henrico Department of Social Services’ February report implies a drastic improvement in Henrico County’s economy.

The number of new applications for temporary assistance was down when compared to the same month last year. The same also was true for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Medicaid and fuel assistance program.

Likewise, the number of cases receiving SNAP assistance decreased slightly, and the number of children receiving temporary assistance decreased by almost 11 percent. > Read more.

Surviving the holidays

HTC production aims to be hilarious, heartwarming
One way to survive the holidays is to wallow in them. Embrace them. Absorb every sweet, sticky second of December. Forget the stress of bargain hunting, trying to find a parking place in Short Pump or baking your famous fruitcakes.

Instead, crank the car radio and sing along with the carols, slurp some eggnog and have a holly jolly time.

For a few more tips for happy holidays, check out Henrico Theatre Company’s production, “A Christmas Survival Guide.” > Read more.
