Western Henrico Rotary helps fund Midwives For Haiti Jeep


Thanks in part to a $10,000 gift from the Western Henrico Rotary Club, another bright pink Jeep modified to travel extremely rough terrain has been delivered to Midwives For Haiti so that more pregnant women in the quake-ravaged country will have access to prenatal care and a greater chance of surviving childbirth.

The funds were raised at the annual casino night held in February, club president Adam Cherry said. The Rotary Club also helped purchase the Virginia-based charity’s first pink jeep three years ago. > Read more.

Playing with fire

‘Dragon’ sequel is a rare part-two success story
Sequels are like toys. Any sequel worth its salt needs more stuff – more “cool,” more “new,” more of everything, really.

Just like the toys those sequels inspire. What kid’s going to want a medium-sized dragon after the first How to Train Your Dragon ended with a beast the size of a skyscraper? They want something bigger and shinier; something that lights up or shoots little plastic firebolts.

Dreamworks certainly had this in mind for How to Train Your Dragon 2 – not just for the merchandising (truly, this is the franchise that will launch a thousand dragon-themed birthday parties), but for the film itself. > Read more.
