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.

CCC seeks donations for food pantry

Commonwealth Catholic Charities is in desperate need of food donations for its community food pantry that serves the region’s low-income families, according to officials with the Henrico-based nonprofit.

After moving into its new location this past summer, the agency has dedicated a larger space for the pantry but the shelves are practically empty.

“As we head into the holidays and the weather turns colder, the need for food becomes even more critical, but unfortunately our cupboards are nearly bare,” said Jay Brown, the agency’s director for the division of housing services. “Donations of food will allow us help provide.” > Read more.

Penguin power

‘Madagascar’ spin-off packs surprisingly strong punch
Welcome to the latest trend in animated movies: the “sidekick/henchman/character who sits mostly in the background” spin-off.

The penguins of Madagascar were a laugh riot, so we’ve been given The Penguins of Madagascar. Same goes for the gibbery yellow minions of Despicable Me; thus, Minions is a part of next summer’s movie crop. Last year’s Free Birds introduced a very Minion-esque squad of men in boxy yellow hazmat suits, and had Free Birds not been such a dud, Boxy Yellow Hazmat Men would no doubt be headed to a theater near you.

Is Penguins a blatant tug at the wallets of everyone who saw Madagascar? Yeah, probably. > Read more.
