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.

Business in brief


The McShin Foundation recently received a charitable donation of 100 EVZIO™ naloxone auto-injectors from Kaléo, a Richmond-based pharmaceutical company. EVZIO, the first and only naloxone product labeled for immediate administration by family members or caregivers as emergency therapy for the treatment of known or suspected opioid overdose, is a pre-filled, single-use, hand-held auto-injector that works by temporarily blocking the effect of an opioid, potentially reversing the life-threatening respiratory depression and allowing the recipient to breathe more regularly. Each EVZIO uses voice and visual cues to assist in guiding a user through the injection process and delivers a single 0.4 mg dose of naloxone HCl injection. > Read more.

Short Pump ES students to host pumpkin launch, composting event

Judy Fitzpatrick’s Short Pump Elementary School students are making Halloween greener by asking people to launch their rotting pumpkins. Fitzpatrick’s fourth-graders are offering an alternative to sending tired jack-o’-lanterns to the landfill: turning them into compost to enrich the soil and feed pigs and other livestock.

If a more sustainable holiday isn’t reason enough to take part in the school’s Smash-O-Lantern event, those who bring their pumpkins to the school this Saturday, Nov. 8, from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m., will get a chance to launch their gourds into recycling fame. The students are working with an engineer and the staff at Home Depot to construct and test a launcher. > Read more.

Is there an Echo in here?

‘Earth to Echo’ aims to become this generation’s ‘ET’
It’s no secret that all found-footage genre movies are the same. Grab a couple of characters, give one of them a camera, and expose them to something supernatural that’s content to lurk just off-screen until the last five minutes. Everything else will just fall into place.

But that formula isn’t particularly family friendly, if only because that thing waiting a few feet to the left of the cast is usually plotting their violent doom.

That’s what sets Earth to Echo apart from the pack. It, too, follows a group of characters armed with a camera and a tendency to encounter unknown life forms. But all those familiar parts have been rearranged just enough to make it suitable for a much younger audience. > Read more.
