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.

Henrico HS football team making an impact on and off the field


Before their Oct. 3 win over Atlee, the Henrico Warriors hadn’t allowed a touchdown all season. And while the football team has been exceptional at reading opposing offenses in 2014, it's sharing great reads with Henrico County elementary students.

Through a program called “Reading Warriors," Henrico High School teams and clubs visit elementary school classrooms, where they share books with younger students.

“These students are our leaders, and they need to be visible and involved,” said Jeffrey Millner, assistant principal at HHS. “We’re also branding Henrico High School as a premier school. > Read more.

Songbirds at play

‘Rio 2’ is loaded with music but short on plot

Rio 2 starts off with a treat: a quickie cartoon called Almost Home, in which a fleet of cuddly purple aliens embark on a disastrous search for a new home planet. It’s cute, it’s reasonably entertaining and it’s got Steve Martin as the mustachioed alien leader.

But the experience sours just a little if you’ve seen Mr. Peabody & Sherman; Almost Home played in front of that one, too. It cheapens the experience a little – almost like we’re watching someone else’s lukewarm leftovers.

The same could be said for Rio 2. > Read more.
