The beauty of tragedy is that it often brings with it the opportunity for an inspiring recovery. The Henrico community recently embodied that opportunity.
Tragedy struck a Henrico family when a fire scorched its home, leaving it with nothing. One of the family members is a teenage boy who was ready to embark on his college journey at James Madison University, but those plans seemingly went up in smoke with the fire.
Despite losing everything, that teenager has gone to James Madison, all thanks to a community effort to gather resources and raise money for the family. (Family members requested that their names not be used in this article.) > Read more.

‘Shaun the Sheep Movie’ surprises, delights
Have people in the United States even heard of Shaun the Sheep? I certainly hadn’t.
I walked into Shaun the Sheep Movie knowing precisely two things about the film: one, it’s the product of Aardman Animations, the stop-motion animation studio responsible for Wallace & Gromit and Chicken Run. And two, it’s got a cartoon sheep in it. That’s it.
But walking out, I was a total Shaun the Sheep convert – blown away by Shaun the Sheep Movie’s unassuming, good-natured, sheepy charms. (Also, it turns out Shaun the Sheep – originally a TV series – used to air on the Disney Channel. Maybe I’m just out of the loop). > Read more.
