UPDATE: SEPT. 17, 10 A.M. – Henrico Police are investigating what they are terming a suspicious death this morning.

Fire and Rescue personnel responded and declared the male deceased at the scene. The cause of death is unknown. > Read more.

American Red Cross issues urgent call for blood and platelet donors

The American Red Cross is facing a looming blood shortage, leading to an urgent need for donors of all blood types.

Donations through the Red Cross are down approximately 8 percent over the last 11 weeks, resulting in about 80,000 fewer donations than expected. The number of donors continues to decline, and the shortfall is significant enough that the Red Cross could experience an emergency situation in the coming weeks.

In addition, the Independence Day holiday falling on Friday reduced the number of blood drives scheduled in early July. > Read more.

Living history

Henrico filmmaker follows his 'Heart'
Henrico filmmaker Kevin Hershberger has transformed the "birthplace" of Jesus into the Hanoi Hilton.

Hershberger, the CEO of LionHeart Film Works, modified the Salem Baptist Church in Manakin (best known as the site of a living nativity scene each Christmas) to replicate the notorious Vietnamese Hoa Lo prison camp for a Vietnam prisoner-of-war documentary he's currently filming for the Smithsonian. Adding shackles and torture hooks to the walls where holiday visitors will line up in December seems morbid, but this is what Hershberger does. As a documentary filmmaker dedicated to filming historical documentaries in and around Henrico County, the VMI graduate is forced to get creative with his sets.

LionHeart is based out of a nondescript storefront in the West End. > Read more.

Brat’s surprising rise to prominence ‘fun but exhausting’

Republican nominee discusses religion, family, the role of bipartisanship and campaign fundraising in extensive interview
In June, Henrico County was the epicenter of a political shakeup that grabbed international headlines when Henrico resident Dave Brat made history by upsetting Henrico's Eric Cantor, the U.S. House Majority Leader, in a Republican primary election for the Seventh District House seat.

Brat became the story of the week. Analysts heatedly debated whether his victory was a portent of the future, when establishment leaders could be knocked off by grassroots candidates operating on a fraction of their budget, or whether Brat had simply found his opponent’s weak spot (immigration) and ridden that all the way to victory. > Read more.
